It’s championship weekend in the NFL so let’s take a look at the matchups:
Packers at Seahawks
If Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers was playing with TWO good legs I’d give the Pack a real chance in this game. However I feel number 12 in a sitting duck and the defending champs are great against the run so forget about Eddie Lacey being the star. Seattle goes back to the Super Bowl with a 24-10 win.
Colts at Patriots
Before the season my buddy was in Vegas and bet on Indy to get to Super Bowl 49. He can win $2500 US so I’m cheering for the Colts because he might buy lunch! Actually I’m rooting for the Colts because I like Andrew Luck and of course former Rider Jerrell Freeman. Unfortunately I don’t see the Colts winning. This team can’t run the ball so Luck will have to throw it 50 times on Sunday. And that’s bad news for a team using it’s third centre this season. Tom Brady and Bill Belichick will make the trip to Arizona…New England 34 – Indianapolis 20. And once again I’ll be paying for lunch! Right Jason?
Time For Some January MLB predictions:
1- Alex Rodriguez will have a mediocre season, of which every second will be documented at length by the ravenous New York media.
2- The New York Mets will make the playoffs.
3- The Cubs with their new manager Joe Madden will be on a lot of baseball preview magazine covers this March.
4- Miguel Cabrera’s health will develop into a story. He turns 32 on April 18th and will be paid 31 million a year through 2023. Cabrera wasn’t totally healthy last year and he just had surgery to fix a stress fracture in his foot..
5- The Padres made about 85 trades for players with big names and big question marks..Speaking of question marks how about their pitching? So they’ll still be the Padres ( just a better version of the lovable losers! But as a fan I’m just happy they tried this off-season)
BACK IN THE DAY
43 years ago . . . In 1972, the DALLAS COWBOYS beat the MIAMI DOLPHINS, 24-to-3, to win SUPER BOWL SIX. Dallas quarterback ROGER STAUBACH completed 12 of 19 passes for 119 yards and two touchdowns . . . and was voted the game’s MVP. (Tickets cost just $15.)
Albert Pujols is 35. Baseball superstar who left the St. Louis Cardinals for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He’s proof you shouldn’t sign guys north of 30 to long term deals…
Roy Jones Jr. is 46. One of the few modern superstars from the boxing world.
The Internet should hook us up with pictures of RYAN PHILLIPPE more often. He’s looking seriously fine.
We should email these to Mike Huckabee: Pictures of BEYONCÉ jumping off a yacht.
Here’s a bikini-clad MEGAN FOX frolicking in the Hawaiian surf with BRIAN AUSTIN GREEN.
Just because NAOMI WATTS is kind of late to the celebrity upskirt party, doesn’t mean we’re going to ignore these.
LISA RINNA looks just as good . . . or bad . . . as she did 10 years ago. It’s a matter of personal taste I guess. But the point is, she hasn’t aged.
CLAUDIA SCHIFFER does NOT look 44.
LISTEN UP POT HEADS….
BETHENNY FRANKEL is reportedly going to expand her Skinnygirl product line to include legal marijuana that’s specially engineered to not give you the munchies. A source says, quote, “She read about how profitable the cannabis industry is and wants to get in on that.” (Two problems I see with munchie-free pot: First, it takes away one of the fun things about getting high. You know . . . eating an entire roll of raw Pillsbury cookie dough and not feeling an ounce of guilt until a few hours later. (And second . . . Do you think for one second the Pillsbury people are going to let this happen? What about the dudes who make Funyons and Cheez-Whiz? This’ll be over before she can even get it off the drawing board.)
Tara Reid and Ian Ziering Will Return for “Sharknado 3” . . . As if They Had Other Plans
This probably isn’t really “news”, but I suppose it matters to a decent amount of people: TARA REID and IAN ZIERING will return for “Sharknado 3”. As if they had something else to do, right?
This time the sharknado will start in Washington, D.C., then move down the Eastern Seaboard. There’s no word yet on a title or airdate.
“Sharknado 2: The Second One” was Syfy’s most-watched original movie, with 3.9 million viewers.
Jennifer Aniston did not receive an Oscar nomination for her role in “Cake”:
. . . She hasn’t felt this rejected since . . . well, you know
Josie Davis is 42. The “ugly” girl from “CHARLES IN CHARGE”! Scott Baio probably nailed her anyway.) (And after seeing how well she’s matured, you probably would too. You might particularly enjoy #18 in this gallery.)
- The Announcer on “The Price Is Right” Bit It on a Treadmill
Yesterday, the announcer on “The Price Is Right” . . . GEORGE GRAY . . . BIT IT while he was jogging on a treadmill that was a prize in a game called “Most Expensive”.
He was being goofy by jogging backwards, and it didn’t quite work out for him. He’s okay though. (Search for “The Price Is Right – George Falls Off a Treadmill.”)
2. A Guy Drove Through a Car Wash at Full Speed
On Friday, an old guy in Sacramento, California drove through a car wash at FULL SPEED. It’s not clear what happened, he was confused and slammed on the gas. But from the video, he looks like he was doing about 30 miles an hour.
He ended up making it the whole way through, then crashed into a vacuum cleaner. Luckily, he’s okay. But the company . . . Quick Quack Car Wash . . . says it caused at least $60,000 worth of damage to equipment.
They’re taking it in stride though. They posted the security footage to YouTube, and set it to their goofy jingle, like it’s an ad. (Search for “Accident at Quick Quack Car Wash.”)
3. Four Guys Pranked the Cops, by Telling Them There Was “Coke” in Their Car
Four guys in Venice Beach, California recently pranked two cops . . . by confessing that they had a bunch of COKE in the back of their SUV. Then when the cops checked it . . . it was just cans of COCA-COLA.
Both of the cops seemed to think it was funny, but a spokesman for the L.A.P.D. called it a waste of resources. Now the video is racking up thousands of hits on YouTube.
(Search for “Coke Prank on Cops.” The cops start talking to them at :25 . . . one admits to having “coke” at 1:23 . . . and a cop finds the stash at 3:05.)
A middle school English teacher in Maryland is in trouble after she assigned her students an essay . . . where they described how they’d KILL her. Her goal was to have them use the new grammar techniques they learned in a “fun” way . . . but it backfired, parents complained, and she sent a letter apologizing. The principal wouldn’t specify how the teacher was disciplined.
After a car crash in 2004, a kid claimed he had a near-death experience where he went to HEAVEN. And it was the subject of a best-selling book called “The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven”. But NOW, he says he made the whole thing up. Ironically, his last name is “Malarkey”.
Police in Pennsylvania arrested a bank robber at a restaurant two blocks away from the bank he robbed. In his defense, the sign outside did say, “Bank Robbers Eat Free.”
