My secretary raises some chickens that walk around her yard (lives out in the country). Her husband's dog got loose (not sure where he was pinned or whatever) and killed said chickens (you know, because he is a dog).
Husband was mad, so he killed the dog.
Is this common practice? ...

I know this has been discussed on here before, but I am considering pulling the plug on cable tv.
My biggest concern is Live Sporting events, specifically USCe football. I can use my parents watchESPN account to watch most of it, but want to know a little more about blackouts from WatchESPN.

I read that WWE has launched their own network which apparently has gotten a ton of subscribers.
I was really surprised, I thought the glory years of wrestling were gone.

If the HBC didn't put Shaw in for his first college snap down 8 in the 4th Quarter at Auburn in 2010, he'd have another year of eligibility. At the time, I thought HBC was mad at Garcia for fumbling, but I think it came out that he had a concussion.
Crazy to think about.......

My season is over but am in a 4 player keeper league.
Would you trade my VJax for his Cobb?
Either would be a keeper for my team next year. I am leaning to do it as I think Cobb is on the way up and VJ is getting older (30 now).
