Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

If you enjoy putting the occasional wager on football games - yesterday was a very interesting day. The day started off with Army pulling the upset over SMU in a game where Army was a better than touchdown underdog. Syracuse then beats Kansas State by 2 points on a last second crap excessive celebration call which had some people suggesting the fix was in (as an aside - even if there was no penalty there is no guaranty that K-State scores the 2 point conversion to force OT). North Carolina then beats Tennessee in a wild finish / meltdown depending on your point of view. If you had Tennessee then you thought the game was won only to see it snatched away literally at the last second. Finally Washington which was a 14-point underdog upsets Nebraska in a start to finish beatdown. Wild, wild day... 50 Funniest Headlines Of 2010... OK I'll say it! The 5 suspended Ohio State players have pledged to return next season - what is to keep them from changing their minds after they play the bowl game? Nothing - nothing at all... World's Happiest Penguin... After 18-years of marriage John Cougar Mellencamp is getting divorced from his 41-year old wife. So does that mean he gets to stay a Mellencamp and she becomes a Cougar?... To borrow a joke from the Baseball Crank - just hours from now, we hear Dick Clark say that magic word..."BRAINS!!!"...
