Donovan McNabb, Britney Spears and Bizzle, the dog with hands

Good morning!

Donovan McNabb is out of work and his former coach, Andy Reid, may not be far behind on the unemployment line.   The Minnesota Vikings released the once "cream of the NFL crop" and now over-the-hill quarterback.

He could still land a gig with one of several teams with quarterback needs, but it seems unlikely.    Perhaps the Eagles could re-sign him, and McNabb and Reid can walk down the exit aisle together.   Reid's dream team has produced a nightmare season, including a 31-14 whipping by the Seahawks last night.

One of the trending videos on YouTube is an Eagles fan who could qualify as a Jets fan because he "hates Tom Brady."


Chris Paul apparently wants to play for the Knicks.   He is demanding a trade from the New Orleans Hornets, according to a report by Yahoo! Sports.   Paul's agent, Leon Rose, also informed the Hornets' brass that he would not pick up the player option in his contract for the 2012-13 season, instead becoming a free agent at the end of this season.  The story comes a day after Paul said his "heart is in New Orleans" while visiting a Boys and Girls Club in Brooklyn with Knicks star Carmelo Anthony.

Little Big Town is trending high after an appearance on the CMA Country Christmas on ABC last night.   Their performance of 'Santa Claus Is Back in Town' is drawing rave reviews.   Midway through the song, Keith Urban and his guitar took the stage for a fiery solo.

Happy birthday Britney Spears!

The teen sensation has emerged from her turbulent twenties as she celebrates her 30th birthday today.  It's hot trend on Twitter.

Lady Gaga's epic music video is spreading like wildfire after its release last night.   Clocking in at 14 minutes, Marry The Night was directed by Mother Monster.   She said it was inspired by one of the worst days of her life.  The video even has its own web page.  I was going to embed it, but the video auto-plays.  Annoying.

A Tumblr titled Texts From Bennett has gone viral.  Someone uploaded text messages, some profane, from their 17 year old cousin. According to the site creator, Bennett is a "17 year old who thinks he’s a Crip, works at Amoco, has a girlfriend named Mercedes, and is one of the most unintentionally funny and brilliant souls on the planet."

The trailer for the upcoming Disney movie John Carter is going viral.  The hero of the popular Edgar Rice Burroughs sci-fi book series is brought to live-action life, as is the Red Planet of Mars and all its inhabitants.    The movie is due out in March.


Santa is making appearance at malls all over the country, but his arrival at mall in Palm Beach went really wrong.


Speaking of stunts gone wrong, this video out of Portugal is pretty frightening, but as bad as it looks (around 1:00 into it) the rider escaped without any serious injuries.


Finally, meet Bizzle, the dog with hands.


That's the trend!

Have a great weekend,
