Thanks, Comcast!

After a Comcast representative came to our house, groveling, yapping about how bad they wanted to keep us as a customer, he offered us their phone service -- Comcast Voice -- at no charge, AND, to sweeten the deal, we were given every channel they offer.

Well, not the Playboy channels, but still, a pretty nice deal.

So, we say goodbye to our old phone bill, and hello to among other channels, NFL Network!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to start sending emails every five minutes asking them to please replay in its entirety the 1981 NFC Championship game that saw my Eagles defeat the hated Dallas Cowboys 20-7, earning a trip to Super Bowl XV.

Here's the signature play from that game, complete with the original call from Pat Summerall and Tom Brookshier. Something I never noticed before...the Eagles left tackle should have been whistled for a false start!

Oh well, tough luck for Dallas. Considering they've won three Super Bowls since that day -- compared to zilch for the gang in green -- I think the 'Boys have gotten over it.
