Observations from a grumpy old man

  • Nick Lachey, a member of 98 Degrees, was recently kicked out of the San Diego Chargers vs. Cincinnati Bengals football game for rude behavior. One fan says he was attacked by Lachey. Would you actually admit to being whipped by a member of a boy band?
  • TMZ’s reporting Playboy boss Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris will marry on New Year’s Eve. Yes, it’s the same Crystal Harris that left Hef five days before they were to be wed in June 2011. I guess you can teach a young golddigger new tricks.
  • National Hot Cocoa Day is Dec. 13. It will be followed by a national day of mourning for tiny marshmallows.
  • This year’s theme for the “124th Tournament of Roses Parade” is “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” cut down from the original theme of “Oh, the Places You’ll Go to Get Away from Pasadena!”
  • The A&E Network is allowing fans create the opening title sequence for is new drama series “Bates Motel.” Look for plenty of entries shot through a peephole.
  • Random thought: What chow is chosen by chinchilla in Chowchilla?
