The most important question of the day, What's on the menu?  Things I will be devouring:
-Kathy's home made meatballs along with roast beef, A+.
-A Cut Above's Chicken Italiano sandwiches, the bomb.
-Cacia's pizza.
-Best newcomer: Buffalo Chicken Dip (shredded chicken, hot sauce, cream cheese.)
-All the salads: potato, pasta, etc.
-Veggie Dips, Cheese Dips, Salsa Dips, 5 different kind of chips.
-Wings show up midway through the 1st Q.

Linkage and Thoughts:

-Watch all of the Go Daddy Superbowl Commercials that were too edgy for the broadcast.
-I've found some pictures of Playboy bunnies at the Playboy Party, scroll down and try not to hurt your eyes too much on the picture of Eminem's ass. [Pink]
-Jessica Simpson commercial image after the jump.
-Stevie Wonder is the man, Joss Stone can sing as well and is pretty cute.  I saw John Legend last July at the E-Factory.
-They must have killed a WHOLE LOT of muskrats to make Aretha's coat.
-Mos Def looks a little too much like that Make 7 Up yours guy to be taken seriously, no?
-FedEx and Bud Light are off to good starts.  The Dinosaur stomping was great.
-I just won my first prop bet: Seattle to score first.
-Damn, Randel El looked like he wasn't ever going to be able to walk, let alone return 3 plays later.
-I vow to never drink Diet Pepsi ever again because Coke does it's own stunts!
-I love Deadspin: 0:35: Hey, look, Donovan McNabb is calling plays for the Seahawks.
-A little geek: All of the technology going on with the Superbowl. [Engadget]
-I think this is supposed to be a tongue but have you ever seen that episode of Something About Raymond when someone's mom built a sculpture?  DS: We all know the best line, don’t we? “We could have
done this song at Super Bowl I, but good things come to those who
wait.” Tell us about it.

-This just in, Willie Parker is fast.
-DS: Oh, no, it's Brokeback Godzilla.
-WOW, Big Ben throws the absolute nightmare pass.  Seattle makes it interesting.  Jeremy Stevens, despite a few drops, has done a whole lot more than Joey Porter to this point.
-Hasselbeck shows glimpses of his B.C. self and throws a pick.  Man, that call against him for a block below the waste was horrid.
-Randel El used to be a former QB you know, maybe the Eagles should sign him.
-Congrats to Cowher, Bettis, Big Ben, etc. 
-Anyone notice any similarity to Hines Ward and Mick Jagger?

 

Now, we finally get to see what a Code Black is on Grey's Anatomy.  I'm excited to get to see Meredith Grey and Izzy in HD for the first time ever.
-Regarding the opening scene: I always knew George had his head on straight.

Could the Eagles be interested in signing another top free agent running back named Murray?

No, not that guy. 

Oakland/Los Angeles/Las Vegas Raiders running back Latavius Murray.

Murray posted a picture on Instagram of the soon-to-be free agent working out with Carson Wentz with the caption "im just here to help."

It's no surprise the Eagles can stand to upgrade their running back corps this offseason — as several mock drafts have suggested. Could Murray be the answer?

Instant Replay: UConn 64, Temple 63

Temple’s roller coaster season continued with a new low on Sunday afternoon.

The Owls, who led nearly the entire way, allowed UConn guard Jalen Adams to make a reverse layup with 2.9 seconds remaining in a 64-63 loss at the Liacouras Center.

Shizz Alston Jr. missed the potential game-winning shot from half court as time expired.

Turning point
The Owls (14-14, 5-10 AAC) looked like they might avoid blowing a 10-point lead after Quinton Rose responded to Rodney Purvis’ game-tying three-pointer with a three of his own to give them a 63-60 lead with 2:32 left.

However, the Huskies (14-12, 9-5 AAC) responded with a pair of free throws from Adams before he snaked his way into the lane with the clock running down for the game-winner. The layup gave UConn its seventh win in the last eight games.

Big men on campus
The Huskies were led by Rodney Purvis’ game-high of 18 points on 7 of 14 shooting. He also added five assists. 

Adams shot just 5 of 13 for 13 points, but connected with the game on the line. He also chipped in five assists and five boards.

The Owls received a jolt Sunday from their young players, as freshmen Damion Moore and Alani Moore II scored a combined 22 points on 9 of 10 shooting. 

In a solid all-around effort, Temple’s Daniel Dingle scored 17 points, with six boards and six assists. Alston Jr. contributed 11 points, six assists and 5 rebounds.

Inside the box score
• After making 5 of 9 shots from three-point range in the first half, Temple finished the game 7 of 21 from deep.

• UConn's Kentan Facey had a big game in the first matchup between the two teams with 23 points and 10 rebounds. On Sunday, the senior was held to eight points and four rebounds after dealing with foul trouble in the first half.

• Temple couldn’t find any room inside, as the Owls lost the points in the paint battle 26-16.

History lesson
With the win, UConn improved to 9-7 in the all-time series. The victory was the Huskies’ third straight in the series.

Up next
The Owls will continue on a three-game homestand Wednesday at 7 p.m. against UCF.

UConn will stay on the road and play at Houston also on Wednesday.
