I may regret not springing for RedZone yet

Here's a quick TRUE STORY to tell you a little bit about how the Zim brothers differ:
My brother tried to get his portable NFL Red Zone screencasted to our parents' enormous TV. The Charter website says "sorry, it appears to you do not subscribe to Red Zone. Please call (number)." So he calls. Having spent his time toiling in call centers, Aaron has a special attitude and natural accent when talking to Customer Service Reps and swiftly moves from Level 1 to Level 2, taking care to always use the rep's given name while talking to him. This goes on for a few minutes, during which time Aaron involves me in the call, asking me to find him that mailer for the DISH Sling so he can change cable companies on the spot. It gets to the point where almost go look for the ad.

While they again discuss how streaming Red Zone worked before the transition from Charter to Spectrum, the role of apps and Verizon in the process, how DIRECTV seems to work OK in hotel rooms, et cetera, I finally pick up the remote, look up the Red Zone channel - which is 785, and see if the folks just already have the channel and didn't know it. Naturally, it comes right up with a look at the Green Bay/Chicago game.

I point at the TV to my brother (who I love very much, it should be reiterated). He cuts off the rep, who is trying to sell him a story about the two days of diligent work they've been doing to try to make sure this IS working, although we can clearly observe that it is not, saying he'll just cancel his service later.

Prism TV "NFL RedZone preview" permanently adding black bars to my TV picture on EVERY channel until I restart the box - thinking "no sale"

Did NFL commentators get a memo on using the phrase "the big chunk" early and often this week?

Mike Goldberg's play-by-play for @NFLonFOX is apparently so excruciating, Vince just called to re-offer him a @WWE gig
12.10.14 14:18 
It's like these people enduring the Vikings game have never heard of NFL Red Zone - yes, the commentators are bad, WE GET IT

That was awesome. Thanks @nflredzone @ScottHanson

It is AMAZING how Mike Mayock can accurately predict a draft pick minutes after Twitter reveals who the pick is going to be

Great day to watch #RedZone #CaptainObviousTweets

Oh God is Dierdorf STILL going on about that? #RedZone
10.11.13 15:21 
Dierdorf thinks real well in super slow motion #NFLRedZone

By the way, looks like the @nflredzone crew enabled A AND B audio on the online version of the touchdown montage:
8.9.13 19:00 
@JayJayDean @nflredzone Almost hope they aired a "workprint" by mistake & we'll get the REAL audio on the website montage later @ScottHanson
8.9.13 18:55 
"Every touchdown from every game" montage from @nflredzone desperately needs to NOT have the announcers completely overdubbed out!
8.9.13 03:19 
The music they play on @nflredzone isn't as good as it used to be. Oh well, it won't matter in a few hours...

The saddest sight of the season: knowing that #NFLRedZone will be stuck on THIS screen for around 252 days

The 4th quarter is JUST starting. Man, at this pace "60 Minutes" won't air until at least midnight.
23.9.12 16:43 
I don't believe the Cardinals are that good, but I WILL believe Mike Vick is that bad.
23.9.12 16:41 
Even I probably have more fantasy points than folks who started Mike Vick today, and I don't play fantasy football #eagles

Two "Are you kidding mes" in five minutes. Guess I'm glad I turned away from the #NASCARonESPN race for a bit #NFLRedZone

Hey remember when Shanahan called timeout at the end of the 1st half and turned that #Rams miss into a make? Well...I remembered it. #skins

Oh My God. @ScottHanson Any chance we could get you to tweet "Even *I* am sick of seeing @NFLRedZone's Top 5 plays of the week" tonight?
13.9.12 20:08 
It's the end of the first quarter and I've now seen @nflredzone's "Top 5 Plays of the Week" ONE HUNDRED TIMES. Still can't sell ads, guys?
9.9.12 16:05 
No, we want prizes. DUH RT @nflredzone: #QuadBoxSighting is trending in the United States right now. You guys REALLY missed us hungh?

Why are Vikings fans surprised? Last year no lead was too big to blow. (And as a Packers fan, it NEVER stops being entertaining.)
9.9.12 12:30 
Ah, geez, #NFLRedZone - did you really need to add a fantasy ticker? You were perfection without it.
