  1. Will it snow during the game?
    • JOHN: Yes
    • ELWOOD: No
  2. What will be the temperature at kickoff?

  3. What will be the lowest temperature during the game?
    • JOHN: Under 28F
    • ELWOOD: Under 28F
  4. Will the power go out in the stadium during the game?

    • ELWOOD: No

    • ELWOOD: Over 2m25s
  6. Will Renee Fleming forget or omit at least 1 word of the official US National Anthem?
    • JOHN: No
    • ELWOOD: Yes
  7. Will Renee Fleming wear gloves when she starts singing the US National Anthem?

    • ELWOOD: Yes

  9. Will Knowshon Moreno cry during the singing of the National Anthem?
    • JOHN: Yes

I remember when I was a kid during the holidays and the glorious day when the Sears and J.C. Penney "Wish Books" would arrive - busting the chestnuts of the poor S.O.B. mail carrier en route.
Contained within these impressive, glossy tomes were the hopes and dreams of everything I held dear - most of which, in my case, were licensed to George Lucas, the NFL and Mattel.
I would painstakingly go through all 500 pages or so - just in case they put a 'Jawa Droid Carrier' in some section other than "Toys".  To the clinical eye this may have been an early warning to the singular (obsessive) focus that  I seem to carry with me now as an adult - but as a kid I just wanted to be thorough - I felt I at least owed that to Santa for the bounty he was about to bestow upon me in less than a month's time.
I would come up with a good list of 50 or so items of which I coveted. Realistically knowing from past experiences (and disappointments) only a few would be lucky enough to make it under the family Christmas tree on the morning of December 25th.
So I found this article to be very funny on the modern day child's Christmas list - that was received by one of the writers of the sports website Deadspin from his daughter - and his very honest, annotated reaction to by him to each and every insane gift on the list.
Enjoy.
P.S.
Still Waiting on that "Ghost Gun" Mom....

Here's the Ultimate in Irony in simple to digest video form.
The Miami Dolphins are embroiled in a locker room 'schism' (sorry Vikings) - where guard Richie Incognito is accused of allegedly extorting money and 'bullying' (yes they're both adults) from fellow O-Lineman Jonathan Martin. The 'bullying' had gotten so bad that Martin has left the team due to mental distress - and when threatening voice mails and racially insensitive texts were revealed as recently as today  - Incognito was asked by the team to stay away.  
Strange behavior for a man who starred in the Dolphin's Code of Fan Conduct PSA centered around          "Being Civilized".  Nice Croquet Mallet.
Apparently the old adage, 'what's good for the guard isn't good for the fan-der (sorry) - applies here.

It's Shark Week on Discovery Channel, and John & Elwood are celebrating the best way they know how: alcohol. Here are the rules for the Shark Week Drinking Game, courtesy of BroBible.com

1) Drink every time you hear an Australian, South African, or British accent

2) Drink every time you see a diver in a cage.

3) When a great white is 'jumping' out of the cage, drink from when the shark exits the water til it the re-entry

4) Drink every time a person mentions chum, a shark attack statistic, or a shark fact (note: this can only happen once every person)

5) Drink every time the camera shows a surfboard or person underwater in the same frame as a shark. Also drink if they show you a chewed-up surfboard.

6) Every time a new person is interviewed, drink

7) Every time a person is declared a "shark expert," drink

8) Finish your drink at the end of the episode. Should you not finish between the end of the episode and the start of the new show, chug an extra beer.

9) If they mention the state you live or have a house in. Drink. ( If they talk about Mass, Chatham, or Jessup don't be a b*tch and drink)

10) Drink every time the show references a new type of shark. If the shark does not attack humans (nurse shark) drink three times.

11) If a shark attacks an animal, drink until the animal dies or escapes. If the animal is a seal, finish your drink.

12) Drink every time someone mentions punching a shark in the nose or eye to stop an attack.

13) Drink every time a Facebook friend posts a #sharkweek status on Facebook or Twitter.

14) Drink every time some one mentions "Jaws" or if the "Jaws" theme music plays then say "we are going to need a bigger boat".

15) Drink every time Andy Samberg is on TV.

16) When a shark attack victim talks about the attack, drink for 1 second per 5 stitches the victim received. If the victim is a girl or a young child, double the time.

17) Drink half of your beer for every limb the shark victim lost. If it happened to be their genitalia, the least you could do is drink the whole beer.

18) Drink every time you see a subdued shark being poked, prodded, or given a tracking device on a boat.

19) Every time you mutter LL Cool J's lyrics, "Deepest, bluest, my hat is like a shark's fin" under your breath -- or aloud. Drink. (And good f*cking luck getting that out of your head.)

20) Drink because it's f*cking shark week. (Editor's Note: This one looks to be subjective, so interpret however you see fit.)

And now class, it’s time for this week’s lesson from Z’s School of Hard Rocks.                              This week we focus on the early days of Alice. Alice Cooper, born Vincent Furnier in Detroit, the son of a preacher. He says he wrote a lot of his lyrics based upon the reactions to him by his mother’s church group.
After high school, he and his band first called themselves the Earwigs, then the Spiders. By 1967 they renamed themselves The Nazz until they learned that was already the name of Todd Rundgren’s band. So they went with Alice Cooper because the name sounded innocuous and wholesome in contrast to their image and stage act.
One night after an unsuccessful gig at The Cheetah Club in Venice California where they emptied the entire room in about 10 minutes, a music manager named Shep Gordon approached them and said he knew of a guy who was looking to sign bizarre music acts to his new record label – Straight Records. That guy was Frank Zappa. For the audition, Zappa told them to come to his house at 7 o’clock. Well, the band mistakenly assumed he meant 7 o’clock in the morning. Being woken up by a band willing to play that brand of psychedelic rock at seven in the morning impressed Zappa enough to sign them to a three-record deal.
And that is this week’s lesson from Z’s School of Hard Rocks.
Class Dismissed!

And now class it’s time for this week’s lesson from Z’s School of Hard Rocks.
This week we getto the Heart of the matter as in the band Heart. Fronted by Ann and Nancy Wilson, the band has soldmore than 30 million records in its four-decade run and Heart was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year. This week’s lesson focuses on the origin of two of their songs.
     It seems in 1977 Heart broke its contract with Mushroom Records where they were working on the
album Magazine and they signed with Portrait Records and got to work on Little Queenie.  Heart and the
two companies got into a nasty legal battle which gave birth to the song “Heartless”.
     Also in 1977, Mushroom Records ran a full-page ad in Rolling Stone Magazine showing the bare-
shouldered Wilson sisters posing much like they did on the Dreamboat Annie album cover with a
suggestive caption that said, “It was only our first time.” When a reporter suggested backstage after a
live performance that the sisters were sex partners, the infuriated Ann returned to her hotel room and
began writing the lyrics to “Barricuda”.
And that is this week’s “Crazy On You” lesson from Z’s School of Hard Rocks.
Class dismissed!
