If the Colts inflated their balls to close to the maximum allowed pressure, then even after being in the cold weather they would still be within the allowed range. Supposedly, Andrew Luck (QB of the Colts), prefers to use footballs at or near the max pressure, however I can't find a source to verify.

It obviously won't really be Star Wars; it won't be the story Lucas wants to tell, and will instead be some sort of mass Hollywood shoveled shit designed to appeal to the modal average and draw in dollars.

If he really wanted to tell the story, he would have sold the rights *after* making Episodes 7-9. Alternatively, he could have retained writing privileges as a condition of the sale.

There's no law saying you have to watch the new movies: if you don't think they'll be any good, DON'T GO SEE THEM!

That happened to me in October flying out of BWI (no slip, they just directed me to a different line). I think they were pilot-testing this:

I've disputed check transactions successfully at Bank of America without getting charged (maybe it depends on your state as to what rules the bank follows). I never use my card as debit at vendors, so I wouldn't know the procedure for that. I have had my card number stolen, but a call to the fraud office generally gets the charges reversed.

NFL Sunday Ticket from DirecTV is available on your phone or tablet without a subscription in the US, but only if you're ineligible for a satellite dish at your address. Also, it's $199.99 per season ($349.99 with Red Zone channel) and they blackout the local game (the workaround is to fake your location).
