I saw a monkey smoking a cigarette and drinking a beer in Cancun, Mexico, so not much surprises me with these things. This Monkey riding a dog at the Colts game was just hilarious though. The thing is so small, yet it looks like a warrior riding a horse back in the day. Just good stuff.

Chuck Pagano also made his return to the NFL in this game, which made it even classier—as if that was even possible after a monkey riding a dog around the field. What was even more unexpected than the dog and the monkey was the fact that the opposing running back Arian Foster was nice enough to pay tribute to an opponent.  Just top of the line classiness right there.

  • Yee-Haw! Meet Whiplash, The Rodeo Dog-Riding Monkey. He's been around for a while.
  • I saw Obama smoke a cigarette & drink a beer @ the White House 'beer summit'.
  • I saw GW Bush try to light a cigarette. He tripped and fell. Amazing because he was sitting when he started.
  • I didn't realize that GW smoked ?
  • I love that monkey and dog.

Way to Go, Texans

In 2011, the Texans could point to the injury of Matt Schaub for the reason of their implosion down the stretch. Sorry, losing Brian Cushing won’t carry quite as much weight. Houston started strong, but lost three of their last four games, putting what seemed like a certain first-round bye into serious jeopardy. Only an improbably victory by Kansas City over Denver or Miami over...
