Well, we are less than a week away from the big game! Here are a few records that will probably NOT be broken during this year's Super Bowl between the Packers and the Steelers:
Most points scored in the Game by both teams: 75 - The league's number 1 and number 2 defenses are playing in this game. And, Vegas has set the points total at an over/under of 45!
Most total yards from scrimmage by one team: 602 - Again, the strong defenses might stop the 2 offenses from having 600 yards....combined!
Largest margin of victory: 45 Points - These are very evenly matched, motivated and well-coached teams. The odds if this being a blowout are highly unlikely!
Most interceptions throw by a QB in a single game: 5 - Both quarterbacks are great players at the peak of their powers. Neither of them is ever that sloppy - we hope!!
Let's see if these predictions are correct - Sunday!!
This is just the freakiest story I have ever heard and I am glad it is coming from Russia and not here in the states!!
A Russian woman had an unusual excuse for a fire at her house -- she set it while trying to bring her sister back to life a year after her passing.
The 69-year-old woman had kept her elder sibling preserved in a bath of gasoline and tried a number of cures to re-animate the corpse. Last week, she came up with the notion of jump-starting the body with exposed electrical wires -- which didn't mix well with the pool of gas. DUH!
The surviving sister was hospitalized after suffering burns and smoke inhalation - REALLY!!

Ok, here is my opinion...take it or leave it. They seemed to have over-produced it. I want to see and hear singers, I want to hear what the judges have to say and move on. A few stories are ok, but the truth is it's a singing competition, right? Out of 30,000 singers...how many did we see/hear? There is too much fluff in the show. I like J-Lo and Steven was funny too...Randy mellowed a little too much...well, tonight the talent is from New Orleans...I will give it another try!

This restaurant is flush with success!! It's in Yunnan, China and they are loving having a crappy place to dine! Modern Toilet retaurant has been packing them in since opening at the beginning of the New Year, an serving up such specialties as "toilet bowl hot pot" and "excrement sticks" -- which aren't as gross as the names might indicate! The owner says "I thought combining the two extreme things together may have good results. A toilet and a restaurant, they are extremely opposite places but combined together can become a unique place." Well, YEAH!
Ok, yesterday Brett Favre filed his papers to retire from the NFL....yea, I do not recommend you hold your breath on this one!! He also says the Green Bay Packers will go all the way this year....I sure hope he didn't just jinx us.....read more here!

Rod Stewart & Stevie Nicks are going to be touring together beginning March 20th in Florida and ending on April 16th in Los Angeles. Stewart says, "We haven't yet begun rehearsals, but I can already tell you this - with Stevie on board, our audiences are in store for an evening of pure rock and roll music. I am already thinking about which of my old favorites to bring back, and vocally, I think we've both begun thinking about which songs might be great funa nd well-suited for a duet or two."

We all need to eat...and here's one way to weed out the married guys in the Frozen Foods isle: - One or two TV dinners: May be attached, but probably not with TV dinners on the menu! - 3 or more TV dinners: Single - Cheap beer: College kid, probably single - a bunch of frozen pizzas: single - Axe body spray: single - Pack of Handi-Wipes: Married with kids - People Magazine: Attached -- and his wife or girlfriend is in charge - Microwave burritos: single! - Thin milk carton: single - Half-dozen eggs: single Good luck!
Martha got headbutted by a dog and she ended up a bloody mess. She leaned over to whisper goodbye to her sleeping pooch, Francesca, but she must have startled the french bulldog, because she bolted upright and hit Martha in the face -- busting her lip open....9 stitches were needed to close the gash! OUCH!

Provide a detailed listing of how previous employer made them mad.
- Hug the hiring manager at the end of the interview.
- Eat all the candy from the candy bowl while trying to answer questions.
- Bad-mouth spouse throughout the interview.
- Blow her nose and line up used tissues on the table in front of her.
- Bring a copy of a college diploma, with white out over the name and candidates name written on top.
- Wear a hat that said "take this job and shove it."
- Talk about how an affair cost him a previous job.
- Throw his beer can in the outside trashcan before coming into the reception office.

If their voice deepens to a more husky-sounding tone...they are!! The Journal of Nonverbal Behavior has found that when a person, male or female, is attracted to someone, their voice deepens to a more husky-sounding tone....hmmm, talk to me :) The call it the 'Jessica Rabbit Effect', strange....

- Video Tape - Travel Agents - Books, magazines & newspapers - Movie Rental Stores - Watches - Paper Maps - Wired phones - Long distance phone calls - Newspaper Classifieds - Dial-up internet - The evening news - CDs - Film Cameras - Yellow & White Pages - Catalogs - Fax Machines - Hand-written letters!! Sad but probably very accurate!
Here is a cheat sheet for translating some common guyisms... - He says, "I'll call you" = he means "I may call you" (If he's into you) - He says, "I've been busy lately" = he means "I've lost interest in you" or (If you've been dating 6 months or longer) "I like you, but I need to focus on other things" - He says, "I need some space" = he means "We're moving way too fast!" - He says, "I love being with you" = he means "I love you....I think." - He says, "I don't believe in marriage" = he means "I'm not going to marry you." There ya go, now you understand him, right????

Look elsewhere if this is going on guys!

Yea, there was at least one winner last night...from Idaho and some media is reporting one winner in Washington too, so they will have to split it!! What would be the first thing you would do if you won that kind of cash? I would invest a ton of it, pay off all my bills and then, well, Mama needs a new pair of shoes!! Lol!
Here's what the survey said:
Men will feel sexier, smarter and more successful if they dress better!! I agree and would enjoy working with them :)
-91 percent of Americans think dressing well can make a man appear to be more physically attractive than her really is....hmm, hint guys!
-64 percent believe women are more likely to marry a well-dressed man than one who isn't as put together!
-75 percent of Americans think well-dressed men are more successful in the workplace than those who dress casually.
OK GUYS...this is the big one: 80 percent of women would give up something in their lives -- such as going out to dinner, using their cell phone or even having 'relations' for an entire year -- for a better-dressed partner!
Man up and buy some dress shirts and slacks guys :)

Dang, he got caught again!! Will that become Brett Favre's new nickname? Boy, this guy sure has issues and I hope his wife is paying attention and takes care of herself and the kids. 2 more ladies have come forward, Massage Therapists with the Jets, claiming that Brett had sent them inappropriate text messages. Shocker! Yes, he wanted a 3-way with these ladies...sick, really sick married guy. Go back to Mississippi and get your life in order PLEASE!
