Sports ‘n Stuff 1/7/22

We’re officially one week into the New Year.  Here’s a list of five household things you should toss to start 2022 off right . . .


 1.  Old documents.  Stuff like super old tax documents and bank and credit card statements can all be shredded.  It’s also a good time to toss old takeout menus, junk mail, and expired coupons.  If you want to hold onto something, you can always scan it and store it in the cloud with Dropbox or Google Drive.


2.  Damaged kitchenware.  Stuff like Tupperware that’s stained or missing its lid . . . chipped drinking glasses . . . or a pan that has just a few too many scratches.


3.  Expired fridge and pantry items.  The beginning of a new year is a good time to go through your fridge and pantry, because anything with an expiration date in 2021 can be tossed.


4.  Clothes you don’t wear.  Or stuff that’s worn out, doesn’t fit, or was a gift but never used.


5.  Junk drawer items.  Go through them and toss any pens that don’t write, dead or expired batteries, empty tape dispensers, out-of-date phone chargers, and other unusable items.

a fan is taking  legal action against  New York’s NFL teams. A $6 billion lawsuit was filed in a Manhattan federal court in January that demands both the Giants and Jets abandon MetLife Stadium in New Jersey and return to playing in New York by 2025.

Court papers have also asked that both teams be rebranded as the East Rutherford Giants/Jets for as long as they play in the Garden State.

The lawsuit seeks $2 billion in monetary damages and $4 billion in punitive damages, with legal claims against the two teams including false advertising and deceptive practices. The lawsuit claims that the plaintiff and the class, which includes all Giants and Jets fans that live in New York, have suffered “mental and emotional damage, including depression, sadness and anxiety … as a result of the Defendants’ conduct.”

Coca-Cola makes Fresca, and they’ve just announced that they’re going to start producing an ALCOHOLIC version later this year.  It’ll be called  Fresca Mixed, and the flavors will be “inspired by recipes created by Fresca fans [worldwide].”

It’s unclear what the alcohol content will be.  But last year, Pepsi announced an upcoming spiked version of Mountain Dew,

which will be 5% alcohol.
