The Weekend Desk Report

Super Bore Sunday Edition
Every year we have to endure the endless days before the Super Bowl. And while this year's NFC Championship Game has left us all feeling a little Phil-Kessel-Without-The-Car, we still have a few suggestions to pass the time.

1. Have A Baby. Apparently, it makes you at least three times better at your job.

2. Earmark Something. Maybe start with a provision to cut your boss's legs off at the knees.

3. While You're At It . . . Some people are positively begging for exactly the same treatment.

4. Party Like An All-Star. Just be sure to wrap it up before you ruin it for everyone else.

5. Assemble A New Offensive Line. After all, 35% beef might actually be an improvement

6. Pull Up The Couch Cushions, Maybe Scrape Up A Little Loose Change. You know, maybe around 85 cents per person . . . treat yourself to something nice.

7. Fire Everyone. And if that doesn't work, try building a billion-dollar monument to yourself. That always buys you some relevance.

8. Tough It Out. Come on, Sissy, even this guy played hurt!
