The National Championship is tonight
Alabama and Georgia will face off tonight at 8 pm ET. Our experts have made their predictions and think it'll be a big night for Alabama. The X-factor could be the game's punters, according to my good friend Andy Staples. I don't really care who wins; I just want to be driving behind this Georgia fan so I can watch on his TV.

Golden Globes Round-Up
The Golden Globes took place last night and was much more serious than past years. Seth Meyers didn't hold back in his monologue, taking aim at Harvey Weinstein and other shady men in Hollywood. James Franco won best actor in a musical or comedy and was joined by an unexpected visitor while accepting the award. Franco was then called out on Twitter for being shady. Tom Hanks read everyone's mind and started serving martinis. A bunch of actresses called out E! for paying men more than women. Oh, and Oprah gave an amazing speech and everyone wants her to run for president now.
