  • That’s a surreal looking picture for Cowboys fans.
  • Seriously, the over/under on the number of times Fox will show Jerry Jones on TV during the Super Bowl is three according to Bodog.
  • My sister should be flying in from NYC today, but who knows if she’ll be able to make it with all that crazy weather up there.
  • ABC World News with Diane Sawyer had a very funny moment last night.  Sawyer was outside in the snow with two other reporters when a man walking in snow skis appeared in their snow path.  The guy looked a bit bewildered and I think he finally caught on that he interrupted the live newscast, but Sawyer and company were nice enough to step aside and allow him through.
  • This will be a cheerleader-less Super Bowl since the Packers and Steelers have none.  Four other NFL also do not have cheerleaders.
  • Former Texas Rangers manager Bobby Valentine directing traffic.  Did you know he claims that his restaurant invented the wrapped sandwich and that’s his wife’s father gave up that famous “shot heard around the world?”
  • A Kansas City Royals pitcher decides to quit because he says he doesn’t deserve his $12M salary because of his poor play.
  • I just used ‘because’ twice in one sentence.
  • I hope Obama calls Harry Reid’s bluff.
  • Most Likely States to Go Bankrupt – Texas looks pretty safe since it’s comes in at 48.  I actually like viewing this list in this version better.
  • Caught my eye: Four negatives in one sentence in an article about Facebook –  So that means you’re not only not getting paid for unwittingly shilling for a company — one you may not even like — but that you also have no say in how your content is being used.
  • U2 concert forces Mariners-Marlins series to Seattle
  • Those Dubai man-made islands are sinking into the ocean.

    "Most Likely States to Go Bankrupt". This is interesting. A number of states are sliding into default and I don't see how they can avoid it. Actually, there is no legal process for a state to take bankruptcy. The bankruptcy code covers every type of entity but a state. The DMN today had an article today that noted the last state to go into "default" was Arkansas in 1933. I don't know what happens when states can no longer pay all of their bills but they certainly won't be able to borrowfor decades and will have to pay cash for everything. Congress is currently trying to decide whether to add them to the backruptcy code because some of them are so precarious; there will be no bailouts for states. Very scary times we live in.

    Speaking of proflagate governments…Dubai took all of our precious petro-dollars and poured them into man-made islands that disappearing back into the sea??…fascinating! I was wondering if that concept would work and if there was actually a market for their project. Very scary times we live in.
