Riders QB Darian Durant was at the Monday Night Game in Arlington, Texas last night to watch his brother LB Justin Durant suit up for the the Cowboys. It didn’t end well as Justin tore his bicep and his gone for the season. What a terrible year for the Durant brothers and their arms.
Former Texas star Colt McCoy looked right at home in Dallas. McCoy put Washington at the 40-yard line to set up Kai (kye) Forbath’s field goal in overtime for a 20-17 victory that snapped the Cowboys’ six-game winning streak. McCoy was playing at the home of the Cowboys for the first time since his final college game in his home state.
The Cowboys didn’t just lose the game — they may have lost quarterback Tony Romo (ROH’-moh). Romo stayed on the ground for several minutes in the third quarter after turning backward and ducking as linebacker Keenan Robinson sacked the Q-B. Romo left the field but came back for a drive in the final two minutes of the fourth and played in overtime as well.

THE CYBER SPOTLIGHT
Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” . . . in the Style of 20 Different Singers
A guy named Anthony Vincent runs a YouTube channel called Ten Second Songs, where he covers popular songs . . . but every ten seconds, he starts singing in a different voice . . . like Kurt Cobain or Frank Sinatra.
Usually it’s a song by someone like Katy Perry. He’s only been posting videos for about six months, but he already has almost a million subscribers.
And his newest video should put him over the top, because he did Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” for Halloween . . . in the style of The Spice Girls, Marilyn Manson, Stevie Wonder, Ozzy Osbourne, Rick Astley, and 15 more.
(Search for “Thriller – 10 Second Songs.”)
Someone Put a GoPro on a Bottle of Whiskey, and Passed It Around a Wedding Reception
This might end up being the next big thing at weddings . . . it’s also a good way to make sure everyone you know gets that COLD you’ve been fighting.
For a friend’s wedding, someone bought a bottle of Fireball, which is that cinnamon whiskey. Then they attached a GoPro camera to it, and passed it around the reception. So every time someone took a swig, they were essentially taking a selfie.
(Search for “Wedding Fireball Cam.” The bride takes a drink at 1:58.)
I guess this was inevitable . . . but that doesn’t make it any better.
A Halloween costume company is now selling a SEXY EBOLA NURSE costume.
The company behind it started selling an Ebola Containment Suit costume a few weeks ago . . . we’re surprised it took them this long to crank out a “sexy” version for people who don’t fully understand the definition of “sexy.”
The costume features a tight, short white dress with a biohazard logo on it that says “EBOLA.” It also comes with one of those hazmat breathing masks, eye goggles, and blue rubber gloves.
If you want the costume . . . and you should NOT want this costume, by the way . . . it’s $59.99. You can throw in another $49.99 if you want yellow boots to go with it . . . and you’ll need to drop around $25 for express shipping. (Buzzfeed)
FAT SUITS ANYONE…
Walmart got a lot of heat yesterday when someone noticed their website had plus-size women’s Halloween costumes listed as, quote, “Fat Girl Costumes.” It took Walmart a few hours to change it, and they apologized . . . it’s not clear how it wound up on their site.
