Briefly.

For Christmas, I got you $25 worth of lottery tickets. I went ahead and scratched them off for you. You won $2! Here’s the $2.

Trivia #1: In the movie “Christmas Vacation”, what is Clark’s boss’ name? Bonus: What is his boss’ wife’s name?
Trivia #2: What is the nickname of the University of Delaware?
Trivia #3: What is the name of the song that begins with: “Chestnuts roasting on an open fire…?”
Trivia #4: “Throckmorton” is what? – The last name of an offensive lineman with the Saints, a town in Texas, a county in Texas, a slang term used humorously by medical students and residents, all of the above.

Can you tell? Can you feel it? The days are getting longer!

They said it: “I don’t know how many times I’ve said; ‘I’m not sure I’m going to get a chance to see Tom Brady again’.” – Chris Collinsworth during last Sunday night’s Tampa/New Orleans game

The NHL Players Association voted to allow players to play in the Beijing Olympics next year. NOT! Due to the number of games cancelled due to that COVID-thing, games will be made up while the Olympic games are being played. DOH!

Good news: Tuesday’s Pens game against the New Jersey Devils and Thursday’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers were among the 32 games put on hold this week alone following a surge of COVID cases that saw nine teams shut down. With no guests to fill the stands, the Penguins took the opportunity to donate food at PPG Paints Arena to a local charity, 412 Food Rescue, that works to deliver food to individuals and families experiencing food insecurity.

Hey Bing, it’s been “beginning to look a lot like Christmas” for about four weeks now. Give the song a rest.

Quote for the week: “The chief danger in life is that you take many precautions.” – Alfred Adler

Quote for the week, part deux: “You can’t spell families without lies.” – Robert Duvall in Four Christmases.

I am interested in watching the John Madden special, but Christmas day at 2pm? Not likely.

Don’t forget, tonight the moon will be visible from the Earth. The last time this happened was last night.

This week’s sign of the apocalypse: The Washington Football Team is still called the Washington Football Team.

This week’s sign of the apocalypse, part deux: At least a dozen students were arrested last Thursday/Friday in connection to threat rumors on TikTok and other social media apps went viral. Students across the country made unverified threats to schools on social media apps including TikTok, Snapchat and Instagram, prompting schools and others local officials to take action. – What’s with kids these days??

This week’s sign of the apocalypse, part trois(?): Hawaii and Texas A&M have pulled out of their respective college football bowl games. Ya, the COVID-thing. You have to feel bad for the kids. On the flip side, Rutgers was chosen to take the Aggies place in The Gator Bowl. Now those kids must be pretty stoked!

Useless information supposed to fire my imagination: “Shaq ballooned to 415 pounds during pandemic.” That’s a big man! His goal is to get back to 325 by March.

It’s called a joke. We used to tell them before people became offended by everything.

You find it offensive. I find it funny… That’s why I’m happier than you.

Trivia #1 answer: In the movie “Christmas Vacation”, what is Clark’s boss’s name? Bonus: What is his boss’ wife’s name? – Frank Shirley – Bonus: Helen

In terms of the “slang term used humorously by medical students and residents”,
Throckmorton sign, also known as John Thomas sign, refers to when the penis points in the direction of unilateral disease, typically of the pelvis or hip. Hey, I’m just trying to educate here!

Be careful out there. (It’s a jungle!)

Merry Christmas to you all!

“Joy to the world! The Savior reigns
Let men their songs employ
While fields and floods
Rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy”

– Isaac Watts (the carol’s lyrics are based on a Christian interpretation of Psalm 98, Psalm 96 (verses 11 and 12), and chapter 3 of the Book of Genesis (verses 17 and 18)

“Jeremiah was a bull frog
Was a good friend of mine
I never understood a single word he said
But I helped him drink his wine
And he always had some mighty fine wine

Singin’
Joy to the world
All the boys and girls now
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me”

– Three Dog Night
