Brad: Move over, Truck Stop Bob, we got a new king of eats around - it's the skinny Japanese guy who spends as much time at sushi bars as he does on the toilet!

Chris: In terms of most challenging columns to keep family-friendly, I'd say this one annually comes out on top. But Takeru Kobayashi actually came in second in last year's Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest to Joey Chestnut. Joey had more buns and wieners.

Your 2015 Indianapolis Colts!

(By David Grant)

2015 Outlook: I see a scenario where the Colts win the division and get the mandatory home playoff game. But if they want a scenario where they go on the road and get to the Super Bowl, they will need more talent on defense. Barring major injuries to the other and perhaps better AFC quarterbacks, the Colts won’t cake-walk it to the playoffs, but once there, make no mistake, this is still a talented and dangerous football team. The Colts’ 458 points scored was good enough for another playoff spot and a seventh place finish overall. The AFC could be a two-horse race, and I like the Colts’ chances of playing in San Francisco in February.
