    NFL 2018 IV: A Hue, A Cry and now Goodbye

    ...and how was TJ Watts' smashing helmet-first into Newton's shoulder not flagged under the NFL's new QB safety emphasis? (rhetorical question - pretty sure I already know the answer)

    Dish Network ditches HBO & Cinemax

    I did not know that Dish owns SlingTV. Good to know. Ironic, I really kind of loathed Dish network when satellite TV was our only option (hated that storms could interrupt signal, etc.) and, now that we have good fiber optic internet, I really like streaming programming. My plan going forward for HBO is basically the same as yours - HBONow.

    My Cold Hands Theory: Jon Snow

    Ah, got it. That's a possibility I hadn't really thought of. If that is the case then I suppose his relatively fresh garb could easily be explained by just getting some newer clothes somewhere, etc. But I'd still like to know what he's been doing for the last...oh, 70 years or so, right? Or are you thinking more along the lines that, while Coldhands is a former Raven's Tooth, he wasn't resurrected or whatever until much more recently? Because, whatever turns out to be the case, I firmly believe Coldhands' purpose was to be sent by Bloodraven to bring Bran to him at all costs. As such, I would have some difficulty with the idea that Coldhands has just been boppin' around north o' the Wall for several decades, etc.

    Dish Network ditches HBO & Cinemax

    HBO has gone dark on SlingTV as well. I guess these same sorts of demands (i.e. minimum subscriber numbers, etc.) were being made of them, too? While we live in a rural area, we were fortunate enough to be able to switch away from satellite tv and "cut the cord" when we got fiber optic internet access. Now we've been cell phone-only for several years, subscribe to SlingTV for "cable", and use a digital antenna for local stations. It works well and we really like it. Kinda bummed about this whole HBO thing, though.

    My Cold Hands Theory: Jon Snow

    Largely agreed! What does "former RT" stand for? And apologies if it's completely obvious...

    My Cold Hands Theory: Jon Snow

    Well, then I stand corrected. Thanks! I thought it was on the outline for some reason. Getting old, I guess As I said, I don't really have strong feelings either way. But I still think Benjen is quite conspicuous in his absence and it still wouldn't surprise me if Martin changed his mind and made Coldhands a resurrected Benjen Stark. And it wouldn't surprise me if Coldhands did indeed turn out to be a relative nobody. But one thing I certainly hope doesn't happen is that Coldhands turns out to be someone from long ago. The reason for this is I think that would stretch credulity to my breaking point, at least, because then we'd need a plausible explanation for what Coldhands was doing for so long, etc.

    My Cold Hands Theory: Jon Snow

    You're right, of course. Coldhands doesn't have to be "somebody" and I'd be fine with that if it turns out to be the case. But...Benjen Stark is very, very conspicuous in his absence. Also, remember, a great many things changed between Martin's original outline to the actual books written long after so I'm not so sure that little margin note to his editor is the absolute slam-dunk proof everyone seems to make it out to be

    Agreed. They certainly look it. I mean, look at how these two O-lines look...just as one example.
