How 'Bout Dem Cowboys?

The Cowboys kept their season alive with a hard-fought win in one of the most unwatchable NFL games of the season. When a game has that many penalties -- especialy false-start penalties -- they should just cancel it and let everyone go home. Regardless of the uglieness, the Cowboys' soap opera is front and center today. After the victory, Terrell Owens went off on ESPN's Ed Werder. Meanwhile, the Cowboys are reminding of a holiday staple: National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. In fact, there's a Cowboy for every character in the movie. And if you want more Cowboys cheerleaders, here's a special one.

Cleveland's Couch Case

A big court case gets underway today, and it could have a big impact on sports fans in Cleveland. At stake is whether fans will be allowed to drive motorized couches to the stadium. Yes, motorized couches.

Ref Roughed Up

Lost in the commotion of Shaun Ellis' fumble return for a touchdown at the end of yesterday's Bills-Jets game was referee Jeff Tripplette getting leveled and coming up with a bloody nose.

E-Mail Of The Day

This landed in our inbox yesterday afternoon. It was sent by WhoDeyRevolution: "Today, WhoDeyRevolution has successfully organized the distribution of 1,000 urinal cakes inside Paul Brown Stadium with the following message: '98-186-1 - Get Pissed.' The Bengals have posted a 98-186-1 record with Mike Brown as Owner/GM over the last 18 years. Over this span, the Bengals have the lowest winning percentage among every team in all four major sports. It is a failure that starts right at the top. These urinal cakes were brought into the game by hundreds of WhoDey Revolutionaries and placed in every urinal at Paul Brown Stadium so Bengals fans can physically express their frustration with a team clearly not dedicated to winning. This operation has been given titled 'Put Your Yellow on Our Brown.' Clearly, the current management strategy has not been successful. It is time for a change. Please, Mike Brown: Hire a General Manager, give him control of player-personnel decisions, spend more on scouting, focus this offseason on offensive and defensive line depth and prove to Cincinnati that you are truly committed to winning. Until you do that, WhoDeyRevolution is going to be here pointing out where you continually fall short and taking action that will someday force you to make fundamental changes to how you run the team so that Bengals fans across the country and around the world can be proud to support a winning organization. Let the Mayhem continue. Viva la revolucion!"

Lastly, Richard Simonin, of No. Providence, R.I., sends us something that truly exemplifies the meaning of Christmas -- photos from the 2008 Santa Speedo Run.
