RON FEINGOLD (LEFT) RUSS FEINGOLD (RIGHT)
As Joe and I were in studio with comedian RON Feingold from the Comedy Quarter I couldn't help bring up the fact we have a state senator from right here in WISCONSIN named RUSS Feingold. Yes, I was that guy. I was also that guy that then asked, "Are you two related?" Because I really don't care that I make an ass of myself 99% of the time on the rare occasion that I'm right 1%.
So you tell me.... RUSS and RON. Last name Feingold. Both work stages/microphones for a living Separated at Birth? Or Is John insane?
11 Minutes of action... sounds like "date night" for most couples but in actuality it's how much ACTION you get in a typical NFL game. An article in the Wall Street Journal of four recent broadcasts, and similar estimates by researchers, the average amount of time the ball is in play on the field during an NFL game is about 11 minutes. In other words, if you tally up everything that happens between the time the ball is snapped and the play is whistled dead by the officials, there's barely enough time to prepare a hard-boiled egg. In fact, the average telecast devotes 56% more time to showing replays.
So what do the networks do with the other 174 minutes in a typical broadcast? Not surprisingly, commercials take up about an hour. As many as 75 minutes, or about 60% of the total air time, excluding commercials, is spent on shots of players huddling, standing at the line of scrimmage or just generally milling about between snaps. In the four broadcasts The Journal studied, injured players got six more seconds of camera time than celebrating players. While the network announcers showed up on screen for just 30 seconds, shots of the head coaches and referees took up about 7% of the average show.

Hmmmmmm..... I wonder what that looks like.
Oh. I get it.
Peak to Peak Charter School in Lafayette was closed Wednesday morning after a large duffel bag containing a Kermit the Frog — which appeared to have blood stains on it — was found on the west side of campus.
An employee of the school called police at about 7:15 a.m. after discovering the suspicious package in Peak to Peak's otherwise empty parking lot, according to Lafayette police Cmdr. Mark Battersby.
Police secured a perimeter around the school, and students and staff who had already arrived at Peak to Peak were locked down in a building on the east side of the campus while investigators checked the duffel.
Using a robot equipped with movable arms and a camera, members of Boulder County's bomb squad checked the inside of the duffel and the Kermit the Frog doll, Battersby said. An officer then made a final inspection of the abandoned items in person to make sure everything was "absolutely safe."

Does a Bear shit in the woods?
All great questions with no real correct answers.
How about... Why did the goat break into a strip club?
The best the owner can figure, the goat saw it's reflection in the door and got aggressive.
A goat somehow managed to make his way into a strip club in Coachella and did a little dance of his own that caused about $2000 worth of damage.
I know... I know .... You're saying "If only I could see video of the incident."
Your wish is granted.
OK it's the Chunky Soup Click For Cans Bowl.
The Green Bay Packers are multiple years-in-a-row defending champions (7) and are at this point behind the Jacksonville Jaguars... so grab your spoons Packer fans and Click for the Championship HERE. BTW - Cans are donated to stock the shelves of local food banks. Individuals can vote once a day.
A win last week over the New Orleans Saints secured 13,000 cans of soup for Wisconsin hunger relief efforts. A total of 1,000 cans automatically go to each team, and a Packers' conference championship win earned another 12,000 cans.
This week, the Green and Gold then will challenge for its eighth consecutive league title and the additional 5,000 cans of soup.
In winning each of the past seven contests, Packers' fans have earned approximately 98,000 cans of soup for Wisconsin hunger relief efforts through the virtual food drive.

As the Miami Dolphins prepare to host yet another Super Bowl, the venue is getting yet another new name.
Terry Lefton of SportsBusiness Daily reports that the team will announce on Wednesday that Sun Life Financial has purchased the naming rights to the stadium previously known as Joe Robbie Stadium, Pro Player Park, Pro Player Stadium, Dolphins Stadium, Dolphin Stadium, and Land Shark Stadium and Dan Marino Can't Win The Big One Place.
The five-year deal will pay out roughly $7.5 million per year.
The prior arrangement with Land Shark Lager was due to expire before the Pro Bowl and the Super Bowl; thus, the name of the place where the two prime postseason games will be played immediately will become Sun Life Stadium.
As it should be the most famous Land Shark remains the one from this classic SNL skit.
