In the Law and Order version of the Tiger Woods incident, a famous jockey’s wife throws a horse through his rear window.
Oh, the Vikings. What can you say? I’m just happy as a fan that I get to enjoy this, because I know this run of dominant wins every week isn’t going to last forever. That said, a Super Bowl victory this year would be ideal.
– Prince was at the game! Of course he’s a fan of the Minnesota team in purple.
– As for the Eagles, I went to the game Sunday, and was happy to see that after months of hearing that Donovan McNabb never, ever, under any circumstances comes from behind to win games, he’s now done so in the fourth quarter two weeks in a row- and that’s without Brian Westbook. The Eagles are now 7-4, their best record through 11 games since their Super Bowl run in ’04, and that’s prior to their usual December hot streak. Not hearing so much get-rid-of-Andy-and-Donovan talk these days, huh?
– Two notes from the game- they played a clip from “Rocky Balboa” on the scoreboard that I heard had never before been played at an Eagles game, and at one point there was a snippet of the “Coach” theme song. I’m certainly an Eagles fan of the Minnesota State Screaming variety.
I review “New Moon,” which was like “The Matrix Reloaded” for girls, on Philly.com.
Did you know there’s a new drug that treats acid reflux, which is called Aciphex? And that it’s pronounced the same as “ass effects”?
Now, the drug industry is handicapped in its advertising, since it has to disclose side effects in every commercial. So why make it even worse by naming the drug “ass effects”?
Some brilliance, from “The Soup”:
COME AND GET YER POPCORN!
Glad to hear Tiger Woods is okay, and I’m curious to hear exactly what happened outside his house Friday morning. I think the weirdest part is that he was reported in “serious condition”- and we’re supposed to wonder, “is he dead?”- until we heard about a half hour later that he was out of the hospital and totally fine.
A caller to Brian Startare Saturday accused Donovan McNabb of not throwing enough to DeSean Jackson because he is “jealous of Jackson’s popularity.” This is an old talking point from the McNabb/TO wars that was never especially substantiated even back then, but makes even less sense now, especially since McNabb threw a long touchdown pass to Jackson just last week.
