I'd complain that, "its too early" but no one cares. Seriously, I'm trying to find the last bag of the special edition Pumpkin Spice M&M's in the Capital Region this week while Kmart is already in Christmas mode…

Here's what will make you feel old today… ready? The iconic movie of our generation, The Breakfast Club, turned 28 this year. That's not the "going to make you feel old part" - this is: today's high schoolers only know this movie thanks to the reference to the Breakfast Club in Pitch Perfect and the Simple Minds song, "Don't You (Forget About Me)" is on the Pitch Perfect Soundtrack.
Thanks to the "high school kid" I talked to about the movie over the weekend, I present this quality SHARE --- 15 Things You Didn’t Know About 'The Breakfast Club'

He may have let two touchdowns slip through his fingers yesterday against the Vikings, but there's no doubt that Detroit Lions Wide Receiver Calvin Johnson has the BEST ESPN Sportscenter commercial right now. Oh, for my non-football watching fans… his nickname on the field is "Megatron." Enjoy!

Yes, football fans, there are other players in the league who do funny commercials besides Peyton Manning. Check out the new "Unnecessary Freshness" Old Spice ad with Peyton's new favorite target in Denver...
Poor Wes Welker is going to have a hard time living that one down.
I pulled up next to this yesterday at my doctor's office.
I can't tell if it's a 66 or 67. Any ideas?

His error was one of the biggest in Major League Baseball for decades. Some would even argue his error brought nothing but pain to a generation of fans. How could a routine play at first base turn into a moment that let the Mets claw their way back into the game, eventually giving them the momentum to win the World Series?
Full Disclosure: I'm not a New York Mets fan. At this point, I can't even say I'm a baseball fan. Sorry, America's National Pastime lost me when they allowed cheaters to play but continue to punish Pete Rose for his mistake. However, I do appreciate the rivalries and history of the game… which is why I had to share THIS custom jersey I spotted over the weekend:
Any Mets fan born before 1986 is going to want one of these too!

Yesterday, the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s famous "I Have A Dream" speech was marked with very touching tributes all across America. President Obama honored Dr. King's memory with a speech of his own at the Lincoln Memorial. Google had a really cool tribute logo (see it here). And tens of thousands of people filled the National Mall in Washington to mark the historical event.
On twitter #DreamDay and #IHaveADream were trending topics. Unfortunately, the Golf Channel was the victim of a good idea gone wrong when they asked their 200,000 plus twitter followers to "Tweet your 'golf' dream," using the hashtag "#DreamDay." Shortly after one follower replied, "I have a dream that no man, regardless of creed, will ever bogey," the tweet was deleted.
The Golf Channel also went on to release this statement: "The tweet in question was not appropriate and was pulled minutes after being posted this morning. The original intent was to celebrate this important date in history, and we regret that we failed to meet that standard."
Yup, that was a MASSIVE FAIL!

There are two kinds of people in America: those who watched the MTV Music Video Awards Sunday night and the rest of us who tuned into "Breaking Bad."
For those of us who missed Miley Cyrus live on Sunday night, here's what we missed…

Guess who is the newest cast member on SNL? Beck Bennett. You don't recognize the name, right? Don't feel bad, I didn't either. He's not a new stand up comedian. Here's where you might have seen him lately:
Beck is the "It's Not Complicated" guy for AT&T. He's also a member of the sketch comedy group Good Neighbor. Earlier this year, he was worried that his TV ads might hurt his acting career. Turns out NBC saw his talent and snatched him right up.
