Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

It is interesting to note that Brett Favre is almost 3-years older than Drew Bledsoe and now he has almost exactly double the number of TD's (501 to 251) and Bledsoe was one of the most prolific passers in history... Very interesting read - the story behind the DirecTV Russian oligarch commercial. My favorite tidbit is the fact that the Russian guy is actually played by an Irish actor... Nice observation by Jason Whitlock who noticed that Mike Tirico was unusually silent last night whenever Favre's dong pictures were being discussed. Tirico had some of those problems himself... Public Service Announcement: Experts say putting ice cubes up the rectums of unconscious people has no physiological benefit and can even lead to seizures and stroke. The more you know... Wow - the true size of Africa... I still say "the Junk Mailer" is the best Brett Favre nickname... Charlie Casserly is reporting that Chumbawumba has been named to replace the Black Eyed Peas at this year's Super Bowl half-time... Michelangelo painting worth $300M found in Buffalo of all places... Opulence - they guy in the Charles Schwab commercial who doesn't like vineyards - he doesn't have it... If the Playboy Channel had topless tennis I think the ratings would be higher than the NHL on Versus... I'm convinced that the Chrysler "race you home" commercial is dubbed in English and that the kid is actually running away from bullies who want to beat him up. The mini-van saves him. Commercial makes much more sense if you look at it that way... Best Typo of the Year. Read the correction at top...
