These pretzels are making me thirsty.

According to my wonderful younger brother, everything in life can be explained in the context of an episode of either Seinfeld or Friends. I don't think he knew that his philosophy would hold true for the NFL playoffs.
The New York Giants come to town this weekend to play the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship game to determine who will play in this season's Super Bowl. According to the grapevine, quarterback Eli Manning's favorite show is Seinfeld. A local TV station airs reruns of Seinfeld on Saturday evening, and has decided not to air its scheduled show because that might be considered "providing comfort to the enemy" -- the enemy quarterback, that is. The news folks took a poll via their web site and decided to replace the rerun with a Vince Lombardi piece.
Apparently, Jerry Seinfeld heard about this and decided to take matters into his own hands. He is providing Manning with a full set of Seinfeld DVDs, the portable DVD player, and yada, yada, yada.
The visiting teams usually stay not in Green Bay, but in a decent hotel in my own little nearby town. Honestly, I hope dear Eli is happy and comfortable now, because he certainly won't be comfortable in the cold come Sunday evening. At the moment, my outdoor thermometer reads 2 degrees. Temps on Sunday will be about the same, and the wind chill has not been predicted -- not that there's anything wrong with that.
This sure is a lot of something over a show about nothing. So put on your green and gold, fans, and serve up the pretzels.

What a great story. :)

Us Patriots fans have a big game tomorrow too, as I'm sure you've heard. And I have to go to a baby shower two hours away, leaving him with the three kids. My husband is NOT happy. Thank God for Tivo.

2 degrees, huh? That makes the 30+ degrees here feel downright balmy.

Withholding Seinfeld? That's dirty pool. I feel so sorry for all of the players and fans tomorrow. So darn cold. Have they ever rescheduled a game due to bitter cold wind chills?
