•I do hope you're ready for the Black Eyed Peas to play halftime at the Super Bowl. The FCC will be watching intently to see if Fergie flashes her penis.

•Someone keeps painting a swastika on a Sacramento mural of Israeli baller Omri Casspi. Probably the Nords. Get SAMCRO on this.
•NC State, then Cincinnati, then NC State again tried their damndest not to win this game. Only the Bearcats succeeded at that.
