At the risk of starting a political battle, I have a question for you... and let's just agree that congress has better things to do, but play along.
Do you think that the Monday after the Super Bowl a should be a national holiday so our companies give us the day off.
There's not necessarily any indication that Congress or PRESIDENT OBAMA have any plans of turning the Monday after the Super Bowl into a national holiday. But there IS a petition on the White House's website calling for it.
So far, the petition has more than 10,000 signatures. It needs to get to 100,000 by February 23rd to get an official response from the Obama administration.
You play the part of judge and jury on this case, since I always think people are ambulance chasers!
A 7-year-old boy in New York who had been accused of taking $5 from a fellow student was pulled out of school, interrogated by police for more than 10 hours and charged with robbery.
Mendez explained, "My son was crying, 'Mommy, it wasn't me! Mommy, it wasn't me!' I never imagined the cops could do that to a child. We're traumatized. Imagine how I felt seeing my son in handcuffs! It was horrible. I couldn't believe what I was seeing."
According to reports, police were acting on a report claiming $5 fell on the ground in front of the boy and his two friends and that one of them took it.
The $250 million lawsuit that has been filed against the city and the NYPD also states that another student admitted to the theft.
The family's lawyer said, "It's unfathomable, what the police did. The whole thing sounds so stupid. They were interrogating him like he was a hardened criminal. If you have a child, a nephew, can you even imagine this happening to them?"
My feeling is though I would be really ticked off, and would probably want to taze the cops for doing this to my kid, I think $250 million is ridiculous! What do you think?
Your party consists of not just the football game, and the viewing of the overpriced commercials, but also food so I wanted to give you this warning of a possible shortage!
The National Chicken Council (who knew there was such a thing) has released a report that says demand for wings is at an all-time high due to decreased wing production.
The decrease in production is caused by the high cost of corn and feed prices.
They estimate 1.23-billion wing segments will be consumed during Super Bowl weekend, which is 12.3-million, or one-percent, less than last year. (Yikes, no wonder why we could all stand to drop a few lbs)
The council says Super Bowl is the second biggest eating day of the year, and chicken wings are the most popular dish.
The council says if all 1.23-billion chicken wing joints were laid end to end, they would stretch between the San Francisco 49ers Candlestick Park and the Baltimore Ravens M&T Bank Stadium 27-times.
Speaking of tasty things, here's a Super Bowl teaser ad that's already getting lots of buzz good and bad... obviously good from the fella's, while others are saying it's tacky and tasteless, enjoy!
How would you feel if one of our Wisconsin teams got sold and moved?
Maybe you're thinking "I don't care if the ____ were here or not!", I however don't want to lose any of our teams, even if I don't go to all their games or watch them all the time, I don't want to lose the revenue in the state.
Well, Sacramento is about to lose a team, and Seattle is now close to getting an NBA team back, because the Maloof family agreed to sell the NBA's Sacramento Kings.
However, the deal must still be approved by the NBA Board of Governors.
A person familiar with the decision as saying the group will buy 65 percent of the franchise, move the team to Seattle and restore the SuperSonics name.
If you didn't know Seattle lost their NBA franchise in 2008, when the owner moved the franchise to Oklahoma City, and the team became the Thunder.
Have you been hit up to buy Girl Scout cookies yet?
Though I don't like the awkwardness of the solicitation in the office, I am a fan of Girl Scout cookies!
The 2 questions I always ask people are how many, and what's your favorite... meaning how many boxes do you usually buy and obviously what's your favorite kind?
Me it's 3-5, and I love the thin mints!
If you haven't heard, the Girl Scouts are selling a new cookie this year.
Unfortunately, it's called Mango Crème. And it's like a way, way worse version of the Oreo: Vanilla and coconut flavored cookies with mango filling in between.
But there's a whole other reason to be SUSPICIOUS of this new cookie. It's INJECTED with a food ADDITIVE called NutriFusion.
NutriFusion reportedly jams Vitamins like A, B-one, B-six, C, D, and E into the cookies.
The people who make NutriFusion say it includes, quote, "all the nutrient benefits of eating cranberries, pomegranates, oranges, grapes, and strawberries." They also say it's made entirely from fruits and vegetables, with nothing synthetic.
Will that make you want to buy this mediocre flavor? Or are you still going to buy Thin Mints and enjoy them and their total lack of nutritional value?
