Gingerbread Peyton Manning Has Reese's Cup Football, Frosting Dong

Because no one reads the newspaper, and SportsCenter's anchors are too perky for this early in the morning, Deadspin combs the best of the broadsheets and internets to bring you everything you need to know to start your day.

•To all those who think the Colts are going to struggle this year, they not-so-emphatically refuted that with a 2-point win over a Titans team that seemingly quit weeks ago. But Manning looked good and they get to close the year against Tennessee, so at least we'll all get to enjoy Indy's first-round playoff exit. (Photo via here)

•Jerry Jones says that he probably would have been fired as GM of the Cowboys if he weren't the owner. But he is, so he's there until he dies (or possibly a few years after that) or until someone with a few billion laying around. Wade Phillips just bought a stack of Powerball tickets.

The Mavs win their 10 and ½th in a row; the Celtics' streak is at 8½. (All wins over New Jersey and Philadelphia only count for half a game now.)

Athletes are now filing trademarks for their catchphrases. We'd do the same for "athlete dong" if we weren't afraid of getting sued by this guy.

•C'mon, you know you want to see Clayton Kershaw dancing at his Dodgers-themed wedding.

•Martina Navratilova couldn't quite make it up Mount Kilimanjaro. I'm not sure how these things work, but I think the charity she was doing it to raise money for now loses tax-exempt status.

Good morning. Stay frosty.
