Saints QB passes for 500 yards - and loses! (The three interceptions didn't help)
  • Brees's passing yardage total was sixth-highest in NFL history. The most is 554 by Norm Van Brocklin with the Los Angeles Rams in 1951.

Dolphins win with -3 rushing yards. Last time that was done was in 1961.

Peruvians fret over erotic theme park
  • In the past decade, Peru has been trying to distribute some of its wealth out of Lima and into the provinces. Those villages find some crazy ways to spend their money.
  • "People in Huayre are bemused by the uproar. National rulers, they figure, have been squandering their riches for centuries, so what's the big deal if Mayor Wenceslao Alderete hoped to attract tourists by gracing the village's central plaza with outsized images of genitalia and of the maca root, a tuber traditionally consumed as an aphrodisiac? The federal government had hoped for more attention to priorities in communities like Huayre, which still lacks paved streets or a sewage system!"
  • Whose priorities? Who needs a paved street when you have an erotic theme park? Hell, they probably don't have any cars to drive on those streets anyway.

Weekend Box Office Results for November 17–19, 2006
  • The two major new releases came in about as expected.
  • The minor releases varied from the predictions, but the net result was a wash. Let's Go to Prison bombed, but the horror anthology picked up the slack by finishing a surprisingly strong tenth, despite being in fewer than 1000 theaters.
  • The group was down $38 million (22%) from last year. As you can see below, results were a bit softer than expected across the board, but that overall softness accounted for only about $10 million (6%). The remaining $28 million can be attributed to the fact that last year's results include the opening of a Harry Potter film which took in $102 million on its own!

Michigan stays close, but Ohio State prevails with 500 yards of total offense.
  • ESPN's obscure stat of the day: Michigan has been in four match-ups of #1 and #2 teams. Each time they have been the #2 team, and each time they have lost to the #1.
