Christmas Gift Guide

Christmas Gift Guide - Being that we are officially less than 10 days away from Christmas morning, it is probably a good idea to finish up, well ok, begin your shopping. Some folks have a knack for figuring out a perfect, thoughtful gift for each person on their list, while others of us just debate on what amount is appropriate to slap on gifts cards given the nature of each relationship. Either way it's a crucial move and one that if handle poorly, could haunt you long past Easter.

With that said, here is a buying guide for a few folks who may be on your list.

Brett Favre - A rotary phone.
Not only will he appreciate the old school nature of this gift, it will also help eliminate a few temptations. No way is he going to be able to send a pic through one of those beasts, it takes five minutes just to dial someone, especially if they've got nines in their number.

Minnesota Viking fans - long flexible socks.
You going to need to go ahead and give this early, before Monday at least. With the Vikings slated to play their games outside now, fans are going to need to keep their feet warm. Plus, it doesn't look like there is going to be any alcohol sales at the University of Minnesota Monday, so it looks like fans will have to go college-game on the situation, hence the flexibility of the socks. Ol' sock drink will keep the rest of your body warm, along with helping to coup with the awfulness of watching Joe Webb play quarterback.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
