Friday Bits of Tid, Pro Football Birthday Edition

And a big, ol' hound dog howdy to ya.

On this day in 1920, seven men, including legendary all-around athlete and football star Jim Thorpe, meet to organize a professional football league at the Jordan and Hupmobile Auto Showroom in Canton, Ohio.

But wait a minute, it's hot here too. A Russian political scientist has claimed the United States may be using climate-change weapons to alter the temperatures and crop yields of Russia and other Central Asian countries.

Comfortably numb Canadian guard bears.

There is no fun in Islam. And no Hippocratic oath, either.

If you're old enough, you may remember the image of the grizzled old newsroom veteran with a bottle of booze in his desk drawer. Some things never change.

First they came for the caddies, but because I used a cart, I did nothing.

Dear Santa, I've been a really good boy this year and this is what I want for Christmas. That and a pony.

Alcohol may have been involved. Man drives 11 miles without wheel.

"Do you know why I pulled you over?" "No officer, would it have anything to do with the cat marinating in my trunk?"

If it was this cat, I would understand.

Y'all come back now.
