I've got a blog post swirling around in my head about A-Rod and the whole sorry state of steroids in baseball that I may or may not get around to actually writing one of these days.

In the meantime, get a load of the headline on the front of today's New York Post.

I'll leave you to make your own snarky comments...

Building adventure

Without any new "Doctor Who" episodes to watch, Nolan's entertainment focus has shifted to two things -- Legos and Indiana Jones. He loves to bust out our great, big box of Lego parts (some of which are mine from back in the day) and build his own creations. And he recently watched all four Indy movies and declared them "better than Star Wars" (I couldn't be more proud).

So imagine his joy at combining the two.

He recently got "Lego Indiana Jones" for the Wii. He only gets 30 minutes a day to play during the week and an hour on weekends. The remainder of the time he spends talking about it. He's constantly filling me in on which level he just completed, which treasure he's found, which new character he's unlocked.

Today he spent some of his saved-up allowance on an actual Lego Indiana Jones kit -- recreating the motorcycle chase from "Last Crusade." He promptly put it all together on his own and was quite proud of it.

Not to be outdone, Thomas spent some of his money on a couple of packs of "Indiana Jones" trading cards. He has not seen the movies, but he's played the videogame and he gets excited about Indy becase he knows Nolan and I like him.

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Everything's better with bacon

A while back, my statement that there is nothing that can't be improved by adding bacon to it sparked a big discussion among friends on Facebook.

Today, I give you further proof that everything is better with bacon.

Free Stuff Files: Super Bowl Edition

Everyone loves watching the commercials as much as the game during the Super Bowl. But you've got to get up and go to the bathroom at some point and apparently I did during the Denny's ad.

That's the only reason I can think of that I didn't know about Denny's free Grand Slam deal. From 6 a.m. this morning until 2 p.m. this afternoon, everyone who walks into Denny's is entitled to a free Grand Slam breakfast.

Guess where I'm going for lunch?

Granted, the word is there was a line out the door at the Wolf Road Denny's this morning. I'm hoping that will have died down a little bit this afternoon.

UPDATE: I never did make it to Denny's. Bummer. But a big "Thank You" goes out to Lindsay for reminding me that IHOP will be giving away pancakes on National Pancake Day, Feb. 24!

Vile Varmint

I'm none too pleased with Punxsutawney Phil...

Super Ads

As a Hulu fan from the beginning I was psyched by their funny ad during the Super Bowl...

However, it was not my favorite. I laughed out load at this one...
