  Bell Expressvu Vu! PPV is Sh*te!
I had an amazingly planned day turn somewhat sour thanks to Bell ExpressVu! Pay-Per-View... I headed to the Mad Hatter, brought along my two eldest boys to watch some FA Cup action today, we enjoyed the first match, Liverpool v Man United, Liverpool winning 1-0, then headed back to my buddy's place, and came back for the Newcastle v Southampton match, we arrived at the pub at about 12:20pm, the feed was supposed to come on around 12:30pm, kick-off at 12:40pm, but all we got was previews for movies... The bar owner was on the phone with ExpressVu, we were all waiting (and drinking) anxiously... Finally the word came - they weren't getting the feed... F*CKERS! So we settled up and flew back to Joe's place to watch the match using PPLive, which worked GREAT, we even had English Commentary... I just think it's really crappy that Bell couldn't have gotten that right, they had the Man United match on, I'm sure the Chelsea match tomorrow will go off without a hitch, but they couldn't be bothered so solve the problem with the Newcastle match, so I (along with I'm sure hundreds if not thousands of other supporters) end up missing the first half (at least!), the b*stards! Anyhow, Newcastle won 1-0, thanks to a Kieron Dyer strike, which he celebrated so strenuously that he got booked! Ah well, onto the next round!!!
