Someone polled 1,000 Americans asking the question, what are the top ten foods you could eliminate from Thanksgiving dinner as well as the top 10 you can’t do without.

The top ten foods we’d be willing to cut are:  Extra desserts . . . Brussels sprouts . . . squash . . . creamed spinach . . . cooked carrots . . . yams . . . cauliflower . . . MAC AND CHEESE . . . corn bread . . . and broccoli.

The top ten foods we’d never cut are:  Turkey . . . gravy . . . mashed potatoes . . . stuffing . . . sweet potatoes . . . bread rolls . . . salad (???) . . . soup . . . biscuits . . . and green beans, or green bean casserole.

Since the sale of alcoholic drinks was banned in all stadiums with the exception of hospitality suites at the World Cup.

Budweiser suddenly has a surplus of beer that would have been supplied to fans during the tournament. So they are offering a warehouse full of beer to the country that win the World Cup, tweeting, “Winning Country gets the Buds. Who will get them?” 

Week 10 NFL Power Rankings 

  1. Kansas City Chiefs
  2. Philadelphia Eagles
  3. Miami Dolphins
  4. Dallas Cowboys
  5. Buffalo Bills
  6. Minnesota Vikings
  7. Tennessee Titans
  8. San Franciso 49ers
  9. Baltimore Ravens
  10. Cincinnati Bengals

20. Cleveland Browns (3-7) The irony is that, despite not having their starting quarterback, the Browns offense hasn’t been bad. Even with the run game struggling against the Bills, Jacoby Brissett and Amari Cooper generated plenty of offense. The bigger culprit in what’s looking more and more like a lost season has been a shockingly bad defense.

The Ohio State-Michigan rivalry could see dramatic changes in the near future. With USC and UCLA  joining the Big Ten in 2024. The College Football Playoff is hoping to expand to 12 teams the same year.  The Big Ten could restructure divisions, and the possibility the Wolverines and Buckeyes would have to play in the Big Ten championship game is close to becoming reality. If that’s the case and “The Game” is still scheduled for the last game of the season they could play in back to back weeks if and when they qualify for the Big Ten Championship Game.

Bob Dylan fans have been offered refunds of the singer’s $600 special edition ‘hand-signed’ book after its publisher admitted a machine had been used to sign them.

A limited run of 900 signed copies of the singer’s book The Philosophy of Modern Song had been released by publisher Simon & Schuster, touting them as being signed by the legendary artist himself.

However, after receiving the books on Friday, fans soon noticed something wasn’t right after comparing signature photos and spotting similarities between them.

Proving once and for all, Bob Dylan’s signature is as unlegible as his voice
