The CFP poll debuted yesterday. Bama and Clemson were sitting on top.  Ohio State was being Kentucky and Washington State. I can’t say I’m that surprised.  A large slate of hockey games took place yesterday.  The winners were: Calgary, the NY Islanders, Boston, Detroit, Dallas, Tampa, Nashville, the MINNESOOOOODA WIIIIIIIILD, Phoenix (who are above .500, which should be cause for celebratory riots in PHX this late in the season), Philadelphia and the NY Rangers.  Congratulations to all of them.

Wait, I thought it was Xiang

OK, now on to…the links!

Uncle Fester dressed as a woman this Halloween.

Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellin says that deficits are not sustainable. And says if she had a magic wand, she’d raise taxes. Right, because there’s nothing left to cut, is there dumbass?

Megyn Kelly is determined to get her money while NBC bristles at the thought. Get your popcorn, because if they don’t pay, expect the tell-all to be published in a month.

This Mueller sexual-harassment thing is getting weirder by the day. Fortunately I already had my popcorn ready over the Megyn Kelly situation.

Republican turnout is big in early voting in key California races. But that’s cool, say Dems. Because what really matters is who counts them.

Victim getting paid.

Pervy Chicago firefighters cost taxpayers $11.2 million. No word if any people were held accountable for their actions. I doubt it though. They have a union contract, after all.

Somehow I don’t think this is anywhere near the top of cop compensation for major cities. But still, that’s some serious scratch for “serving” the public.

Today is an awesome day for music. Although I foresee some bitching about one of the choices. Or maybe both go them. But those people would be wrong.

Very, very wrong. N ow go have a great day!
