Jon Stewart and The Daily Show are one of the best programs on cable these days. His deadpan humor mixed with the complete and utter mess the world is in right now is a refreshing way to watch the news.

Broncos Beat the Jaguars, But It Wasn’t the Blowout Vegas Expected


Last week, when the Vegas overlords set the betting line for the game between the then 5-0 Denver Broncos and the 0-5 Jacksonville Jaguars, it really wasn’t a surprise to anyone that the Jaguars were getting 28 points according to NFL betting lines online (click to view more lines here).  It was the largest point spread in NFL history and for good reason.
