Top twenty meanest tweets about Comcast outage during Broncos game

If the folks at Comcast wanted to maximize hatred and inspire customers to explore satellite delivery, they couldn't have chosen a better time for a cable outage than at halftime of as crazy a Broncos game as any in recent memory -- a 51-48 victory over the Dallas Cowboys not decided until the final seconds. Service had been restored by that time, but it was out for most of the second half, with recorded messages saying a fix might not happen until 8 p.m., leaving folks with plenty of time to vent on Twitter. Count down the twenty meanest tweets we found below.
