Ho, ho, ho.

Really disappointed, it’s Christmas Eve and I haven’t gotten a Thanksgiving card from Steve Harvey.

NORAD was doing their  usual good work tracking Santa last night. Let’s see, a foreign bearded man flying with an overweight cargo of mystery packages, and he says he is only carrying weapons on behalf of those who wished for them. Waiting to see some GOP candidate blame this on Obama.

The Hanford Nuclear Reservation in Washington, home of the U.S.’s largest collection of toxic radioactive waste, is now the U.S’s newest national parks. (Apparently tourists won’t be allowed near the waste itself.). Could be cool, the only national park where you won’t need flashlights after dark.

 

In their possible last game in Oakland, the Raiders won 23-20, in OT, to move to 7-8 on the season. Alas for fans who remember the halcyon playoff days, there is no chance the team moves to the NFC East.

A Northern California man is out on bail, three days after being arrested for making threats outside a Richmond mosque and posting a picture of a pipe bomb and anti-Islam rants on Facebook. So where are the GOP candidates screaming about terrorism on this one?

The Fox Business Network has decided the next GOP debate can include only six candidates, based on the most recent polls. So no doubt the number was chosen to optimize ratings. But without a single vote being cast this decision is being made by a group of people too bored or stupid to hang up on telephone pollsters?

If we really are going to count meaningless non-votes for the GOP presidential primaries in deciding the debates, why not forget the polls and do an American Idol set-up. Lowest total gets voted off each week. Then we might really be talking ratings.

SportsCenter said Malcolm Butler’s game-ending interception against the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl was the top play of the year. Okay, but should the “Top Play” really be the result of one of the “Not Top Ten Plays” of all time? ‪#‎shouldhavehandedofftoLynch‬ ‪#‎Cantfixstupid‬

Bristol Palin had her second child yesterday, and named the little girl “Sailor.” Because “Saint” was already taken?

Stanford has a big billboard out football stadium touting Kevin Hogan, Christian McCaffery and their “99 percent grad rate” And at Cal they are thinking. “So is that more than half?”

Dec 24 was the Popeye Bahamas Bowl. Middle Tennessee and Western Michigan. This is the rare bowl where both teams win, by getting to spend Christmas in Nassau instead of Murfreesboro and Kalamazoo.

Although shouldn’t  a rule for a bowl game be, that you have to be able to sell more tickets that there are players on the field.

 

Hyatt Hotels just announced, while they aren’t sure of how many cards may have been compromised, the company apparently discovered malware on their payment processing computers 3 weeks ago. 3 weeks?! Well, nothing can go wrong in that time….

The Phoenix Suns suspended underachieving forward Markieff Morris for two games today after he threw a towel at coach Jeff Hornacek. Fortunately for Hornacek, since it was Morris, he missed..
