Only a jelly donut with a hollow center could have been more of a disappointment to me than what I received for Christmas in 1986.

The Sears catalog had me bamboozled, looking at miniature figures of 22 football players (11 per team), spread in formation over an NFL playing field. But, as it turned out, an electronic football game is much more fun to imagine than it is to play.

Winter Wonderland award: Buffalo scored one touchdown in their win against Green Bay. The TD came on a 75-yard punt return from Marcus Thigpen, who was cut from the 2-12 Tampa Bay Buccaneers just last month.

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer award: To Peyton Manning. Who else would you want guiding your Super Bowl sleigh right now? Okay, maybe Russell Wilson. Reindeer games start in two weeks! #rudolphtherednosedreindeerturns50

Wheel O' Cheddar

Two Super Bowl appearances in the last eight years, a sure-fire Hall-of-Famer at quarterback and a team that looks to make the playoffs for the ninth time in 11 years, but those accomplishments notwithstanding, I am terrified for Packer fans.

Because if any giant, mutant rats are discovered that are proportionately configured to the size of cheese wedges Packer fans wear on their heads, unless cheese has more powers than we know of, civilization in Green Bay, Wis., is suddenly just a side item on the all-you-can-eat Helpless & Screaming Human Buffet.
