Link roundup

1. Watch a player on the Buffalo Bills score a touchdown in Dallas, and then give the ball to his girlfriend, a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader.

2. And more on football and "romance" - - Bart Scott of the Jets:

Do you sense a rivalry between the Jets and Giants?

"Not at all. Like I said when I was in Baltimore I could remember with the Redskins you had guys fighting over strippers and all kind of stuff. I don't sense that here. I think it is a mutual respect. I think the town is big enough for both of us. I think we were just trying to make a statement that hey we wanted a little bit bigger piece of the spotlight because when I got here my sense was pretty much all Giants type of town. We played in Giants Stadium. We just want to get our piece of the pie. We respect them, but we would definitely love – we look forward to that game. I believe it is the 24th of December for bragging rights and hoping that's the game that could help us win this division."

Bart you gotta help me out. You guys fought for strippers? What does that mean?

"When you are in a small place like Baltimore and the temperature is relatively cold – hey you compete over the same chicks. That's a football players favorite spot. Especially young football players. It was always a rivalry. Guys fight about hey that is my girlfriend and that's my girlfriend, but here? Five million people, maybe more. There is plenty for everybody."
3. Prison in Acapulco:
Authorities say a surprise search at an Acapulco prison has netted two peacocks, 100 fighting cocks, 19 prostitutes and two sacks filled with marijuana.
4. Finally, taking a break from the sex and sports talk - - Joe Ledbetter's excellent Zodiac toys are finally in stock at Tenacious Toys. These are about twice the size of typical blind box toys, and slightly poseable (heads and/or limbs that turn). Probably my favorite designer toy set of the year (I'll be giving out some as gifts over the holidays). They're not blind box, so you can pick the one(s) you want.
