2.  actor DABNEY COLEMAN has a milestone birthday today..he turns 80…..you probably mostly remember him from the DOLLY PARTON/LILY TOMLIN/JANE FONDA movie called “9-5″…

for some reason, DABNEY usually played the “bad guy” type character…

here’s DABNEY COLEMAN today on his 80th birthday…


3.  the very beautiful DANICA MCKELLAR has a birthday today…she played “WINNIE”, FRED SAVAGE’S girlfriend on “THE WONDER YEARS.”

she is now 37 years old…and quite the cutie….

DANICA also did a racey spread for a couple of magazines including “MAXIM.”  i was going to put one in here, but they’re a bit too sexy, even for this blog..ha ha

what about her “WONDER YEARS” co-star?  well, here’s FRED SAVAGE today at the age of 35….


4.  my “JUST SHUT UP” award for today goes to WASHINGTON REDSKINS quarterback REX GROSSMAN….

my SKINS once again, finished in the basement of the NFC EAST…

MR. GROSSMAN, in his utmost wisdom, said yesterday that he can”FIX HIS INTERCEPTION PROBLEMS”….okay, dude..if you can just fix them, why didn’t you fix them during the year?  IDIOT…

my REDSKINS need a major overhaul, including a new quarterback..i hope and pray that they don’t resign GROSSMAN…otherwise, it’s another year of crap….

5.  well, our three game weekend in MINNEAPOLIS this weekend netted a total of ZERO wins and THREE losses…let’s talk about each of them…

i never thought i would say that the most promising team in MINNESOTA is….THE MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES…

and most of the excitement is their spanish sensation, RICKY RUBIO…

the T-WOLVES should have beat the MIAMI HEAT…how exciting would that have been?  this team is going to win a good number of games this year…i’m not talking playoffs, YET…but they will win some games….

another note on that game…i didn’t care for LEBRON JAMES before the game, and i care less for him afterwards…what a cocky player…he would hit a three and gesture toward the fans….guys like that are obviously not in it for the “team” atmosphere…he’s there for HIMSELF….and, he didn’t come out to warm up with his teammates…he walked out by himself about five minutes later…

the second most exciting is…THE MINNESOTA WILD…

i have become a hockey freak, thanks to the WILD and the ABERDEEN WINGS…

the WILD played PHOENIX on new year’s eve, and lost 4-2…they were just completely outskated all night long…made stupid passes and just didn’t compete well…HOWEVER, they were on top of the division before their freefall lately…they can get back up there, and they certainly can make the playoffs this year…

speaking of playoffs, one team that didn’t even come close to the playoffs was, our beloved MINNESOTA VIKINGS…

they looked AWFUL on sunday in their loss to the CHICAGO BEARS…the VIKES have a lot of rebuilding to do….and they look a long ways away from winning the division again…

the highlight of sunday was the emotional tributes to JIM KLEINSASSER of the VIKINGS, who retired after over a dozen seasons with MINNESOTA…he is a CARRINGTON, N.D. native, and rumor has it, the VIKINGS sent two busses to CARRINGTON to bring people down to see his final game….we’ll miss you JIM…you were one class act….

6.  they received around 1-2 inches of snow in MINNEAPOLIS over the weekend..it really came down on new year’s eve….the bad news was that it stuck to rain that fell new year’s eve before the snowfall…it was quite slick on sunday…but, with our beautiful winter weather, it didn’t last long….

7.  speaking of weather…HOW ABOUT THIS JANUARY SO FAR?  50 for a high today and wednesday…60 on thursday?  incredible, huh?

8.  40,000 new laws went into effect the first day of 2012…and LINDSAY LOHAN’S new year’s resolution is to break 39,000 of them….

9.  an engineering group said that the washington monument if full of cracks…we haven’t heard the words “WASHINGTON” and “CRACK” together since MARION BARRY…

10.  to save water, soap and electricity, a researcher in AUSTRALIA got 30 volunteers to wear the same pair of jeans for five days a week for three months without washing them..in our country it’s called “college.”

11.  a man who continuously knocked on LINDSAY LOHAN’S door was booked for trespassing…he had no drugs on him, so police knew he didn’t belong there…

12.  NBA crazyman DENNIS RODMAN said that he’s returning to basketball to coach a new TOPLESS women’s basketball team…the women will do the dribbling, the fans will do the drooling…

13.  RUSSELL BRAND has filed for divorce from KATY PERRY after only 14 months of marriage, or as KIM KARDASHIAN calls it “the silver anniversary.”

14.  after this past weekend the NFL post season picture is all set..unfortunately it still includes MADONNA….


  A man was walking in the city, when he was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking bum who asked him for a couple of dollars for dinner. The man took out his wallet, extracted two dollars and asked, “If I give you this money, will you take it and buy whiskey?”
    “No, I stopped drinking years ago,” the bum said.
    “Will you use it to gamble?”
    “I don’t gamble. I need everything I can get just to stay alive.”
    “Will you spend the money on greens’ fees at a golf course?”
    “Are you NUTS?! I haven’t played golf in 20 years!”
    The man said, “Well, I’m not going to give you two dollars. Instead, I’m going to take you to my home for a terrific dinner cooked by my wife.”
    The bum was astounded. “Won’t your wife be furious with you for doing that? I know I’m dirty, and I probably smell pretty bad.”
    The man replied, “That’s OK. I just want her to see what a man looks like who’s given up drinking, gambling, and golf.”
