The [New Year's] Papers

"Let's cut right to the chase. What does it mean - all this highly competent football during the past two weeks against teams that had something to play for (the Packers were still alive for overall home-field advantage and the Saints had an outside shot at a wild card) even if the Bears didn't? The answer, I'm afraid, is not much," writes our very own Jim Coffman in Bear Monday.

Not much, but still something.

Holiday Note
The rest of the Beachwood, including The Papers, will return on Wednesday with a full slate of really good stuff. In the meantime, the Weekend Desk is in charge.


The Weekend Desk Report by Natasha Julius
It's been our pleasure to serve at the Weekend Desk in 2007. As New Year's Day draws near, we pledge to be at least 50% more butch in 2008.

Market Update
It's time to put the pain of the recent Bear market behind us. Of course, despite recent gains the climate is hardly Bullish. Experts note the housing crunch may keep the Cub market depressed and there's been precious little movement on the Sox market. According to analysts, conditions are ripe in 2008 for a rare Hawk market.

Iowa Lot to Them
With the 2008 Iowa caucuses right around the corner, analysts are predicting sources of bitchery and paranoia may not hold much longer and may lead to terminal fatigue.

Trumped Down
As more politicians contemplate a return to private life after years of repression, lies and mind-boggling denials, we have good news: the lower ring of Hell is now open.

One Step Ahead
Scientists this week have announced the discovery of a snortable drug that replaces sleep. Lindsay Lohan has announced, "Duh."

Buckeyes, Indeed
Finally, with the BCS Championship Game right around the corner, the state of Ohio has already taken a commanding lead in the all-important Kinky Entrapment Bowl while Texas A&M has blown out a strong field to take the Really Fucking Tasteless Bowl title.

The Beachwood Tip Line: Give a little bit.
