Afternoons with Jay

An Extra Special Day (for me)!

Today is an extra special day for me, because I was born several years ago. It's Happy Me Day! If you were born today, well Happy You Day! If not, Happy belated or Happy in the Future Day to you! I found out that November is #NationalAdoptionAwarenessMonth.

My brother-in-law Jamie & his wife Becky were foster parents for a while in Omaha, Nebraska and they feel in Love & adopted Siyea, a beautiful 6 year old. I'm looking forward to seeing her again to celebrate Christmas time for the first time w/ her.

Adoption can be a beautiful option for the right couple and child.I should know I was born several/ lots of years ago ( on this date) and adopted 3 weeks later by Daddy Maurice & Mama Betty.
They always told me I was wanted, so it wasn't a strange thing for me. Although both are no longer here (R.I.P) which makes me sad thinking about that, until I think of the good times I had growing up. Precious memories puts a BIG SMILE on my face and makes my heart hurt less. Adoption isn't for everybody, but it certainly is a WONDERFUL option when it works! Something to Think about!

I am Thankful I have my family.. my honey Ted & Furbaby Huey to celebrate 'My Day' and 'Thanksgiving Weekend'. I LOVE THEM SO MUCH! It means the world to me. Enjoy each moment you have w/ your family & friends. You will cherish them later when they can't be w/ you. Have a Happy & Safe Thanksgiving Holiday! Y'all Rock! Heather

Hello, Miss Piggy

Adele has taken over the entertainment world as the year closes out.

She was on Saturday Night Live this weekend, she pulled that prank with Adele impersonators on the BBC, and her song "Hello" is doing phenomenally well.

So well, it's leap-frogging over anything Taylor Swift did in 2015 as the most-parodied video of the year.

Look who's taking a swipe at it now.

Miss Piggy, in a bold-faced promotional move for The Muppets on ABC.

Take Off the Football Helmet, Put on the Dunce Cap

Johnny Manziel - the NFL quarterback who'd prefer to be known as Johnny Football - was named the starting QB for the Cleveland Browns for the remainder of the season.

That was last week.

Yesterday, he lost the starting position.

He also lost the back-up position.

He's now the Number 3 QB, and all because of video that surfaced showing him partying Manziel-style after being named the starting QB.

When his coach handed the spot to him, he did tell him to be on his best behavior.

Looks like maybe that didn't sink in...

More Patriots Controversy

It seems like the New England Patriots are magnets for controversy.

The whole Deflategate thing is finally winding down, but now the 10 & 0 Pats have another tempest brewing.

At least this one isn't about them. It happened to them.

They're calling it Whistlegate.

During Monday's game between the Patriots and the Buffalo Bills, a referee blew a whistle that ended a play that looked like it might have resulted in a Patriots touchdown. After a huddle of about 15 minutes (okay, that's an exaggeration), the refs announced that the whistle had been "inadvertent."

And the football world goes mad! At least this will give folks something to chew on for the rest of the season, right?

Burying the Star Wars Hatchet

Jimmy Kimmel Live has a long-standing running gag suggesting that Harrison Ford is feuding with Chewbacca from the Star Wars franchise.

Something to do with a woman - "a long time ago... in a galaxy far, far away," says Jimmy.

Last night, it looks like a near tragedy managed to bring the two old friends together.

Thank you, Jimmy Kimmel!

"Never Talk About Sex, Politics or Religion"

This may be the most awkward exchange ever between two people who make their living with comedy.

Stephen Colbert had Bill Maher on his show the other night, and the discussion turned to religion.

Stephen's a practicing Catholic - "doesn't mean I'm good at it," says Stephen.

Bill was raised Catholic, but is now non-religious.

Somehow, Stephen tried to convince Bill to return to the Church.

I'm pretty sure he was kidding, but Bill didn't seem to get that.

And that's when it all turned awkward.

Check it out. Maybe it's just me?

"A New Classic for a New Generation"

There's been a lot of buzz surrounding Creed, aka Rocky VII.

In this one, the son of Apollo Creed turns to Rocky Balboa to manage him as a boxer.

Sort of putting Rocky in the Mickey spot.

And putting Sylvester Stallone back in the spotlight after a pretty good stretch out of it.

They're marketing this as your Thanksgiving movie.

Might not be a bad idea to plan to see it. Sure beats Black Friday shopping...

See why critics are calling #CREED "an absolute knockout." 7pm screenings Tuesday, everywhere Wednesday: http://bit.ly/creedtix

How he got his catch phrase...

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! Here's a SNL flashback with Matthew McConaughey that's a treat for me. If you haven't seen it, could be for you too.Here's how Actor Matthew McConaughey came up with the famous catchphrase "Alright, alright, alright" after he met the Dazed and Confused casting director at the Hyatt Hotel bar.

Nice, now if I could only run into him sometime around ATX. I've meet many people who have, but I haven't in the almost 10 years I've lived here. I'm still holding out hope.... 'Alright, Alright, Alright'.... Matthew Rocks! Have a Happy & Safe Thanksgiving!

Tag, You're It

Here's a viral Vine for you.

Will Parks is a safety for the University of Arizona Wildcats.

When his team faced the Utes from the University of Utah a week ago, the game ended in a tie at the end of four quarters, going into overtime.

The four captains from each team met at mid-field for a coin toss.

As the referee stepped forward to announce who'd won, Will started to walk away.

The referee tapped Will on the shoulder pad, probably to keep him there until the announcement was made.

So Will turned around and gently tagged the ref on the shoulder.


And viral. At this writing, close to a quarter-million hits, with close to 13 million loops.
