NFL Round-Up

Mini-Ben McAdoo is my new favorite Giants fan ... â€‹Martellus Bennett ate a sideline banana and gave a great postgame quote about sex ... Protesters climbed the rafters at the Vikings-Bears game to protest the Dakota Pipeline ... Josh Norman gave Odell Beckham a friendly head-butt ... The Eagles booted a beat reporter from the press box ... Bills back Mike Gillislee made the worst special teams play of the season. This won't happen if 91-year-old Marv Levy becomes coach again ... Aqib Talib owes Michael Crabtree a new gold chain ... Adam Vinatieri missed a $500,000 field goal ... Tony Romo threw his first TD pass of the year ... RG3 trucked a sound guy on the sideline.

Mariah Carey Update

If you haven't heard about Mariah Carey's New Year's Eve debacle, you need to get out more. The famous diva claims technical difficulties marred her performance while Twitter users raced to make the best joke. Carey handled it as well as one could, and to be fair, she isn't the first to have an embarrassing lip-sync snafu.

Toronto Wins Centennial Classic

Over 40,000 fans packed BMO Field Sunday for the Centennial Classic, only to watch the Maple Leafs blow a 4-1 lead before winning in overtime. In a sentence you don't hear very often, the game was delayed 30 minutes because of sun. Future MVP Auston Matthews scored the game winner and I can't stop thinking about this graphic comparing Matthews and Jaromir Jagr.
