Yahoo’s NFL Gamepass is less than pleasing

Update: I’m still unhappy with Yahoo, but at least their customer service department responded fairly quickly and refunded my money. Kudos to them for fixing this problem eventually.


No other way to put it. $20 for a single game. Fine, I am desperate. We got take-away food, ready to watch the game.

Result: we’re sorry, the event hasn’t started yet. Over and over and over. No Seahawks game. No any game. Unbelievable these guys can charge money for this. If only I knew a lawyer, someone who would think wow, I bet there are thousands of other people out there who just got screwed. Sounds like a class action suit to me.

I’ll post updates as I can. Their site says “no refunds” so I guess I can start the long Visa-rejection-because-these-guys-are-frauds process. I love doing that. Bottom line: they say you can watch the NFL, they charge you for it, and then you cannot watch. Nice business model fellas.

Paris restaurants

A colleague of mine was kind enough to provide a list of restaurants to try in Paris. I plan to try out these and others in our time in Paris. Hopefully I will even write up a quick review on each. I know the world doesn’t need another Paris restaurant review site, but my angle is a little different: restaurants for people from Seattle who enjoy great food but are more used to the general swill served on the Eastside but have lived in Zurich for the last year and while they enjoy wurst in all its glories were really in need of some good food. Might not be a big demographic though.

Something nice you can do on Saturdays is “Marché des enfants rouges” (rue de Bretagne , 3ème) to have lunch and a walk in the neighborhood (a really parisian thing).

American food :

Joe Allen,

30 rue Pierre Lescot, Paris 1er

There is one Joe Allen in New York (good sign J )

Coffee Parisien,

7, Rue Gustave-courbet , Paris 16ème

4, Rue Princesse, Paris 6ème

Mexican food :

La Perla, 26, Rue François Miron, Paris 4ème
