Meanwhile, Jerry is dating a masseuse Jennifer Coolidge , but is frustrated by her reluctance to give him a massage. George becomes so obsessed over the fact that Jerry’s girlfriend doesn’t like him, he dumps his own girlfriend Lisa Edelstein after she gives him an ultimatum to choose between them. As she storms out she encounters an enamored George, who professes that “she dislikes me so much, it’s irresistible”.

After Elaine’s boyfriend Joel realizes he needs to change his name, they argue incessantly over choice of new name and presumably break up over it as he fails to appear in any future episodes. She suggests that many people these days are named “Deion,” referencing Deion Sanders.

The San Francisco 49ers season was the franchise’s 66th season overall, and 62nd in the National Football League (NFL).

From the first game of the rivalry’s renewal a 38—34 Patriots victory highlighted by a last-second goalline stand the rivalry has been bitterly close: The other AFC East teams were only able to play the Colts when the East and South divisions were scheduled to play a full interlocking schedule. Tom Brady received his first start against the Colts after an injury to then-starter Drew Bledsoe , and proceeded to defeat the Colts in his first six games against them in the next years, including the AFC Championship game and a AFC Divisional playoff game.

The Patriots’ quest for a perfect season included a comeback 24—20 victory in their final visit to the RCA Dome.

While the numbers weren’t as overwhelming as they’ve been in recent weeks — Garoppolo finished of for yards with two touchdowns and an interception for a passer rating of Garoppolo got the Niners off to a lead against a dominant Jacksonville defense that had been allowing only passing yards per game. He threw for yards in the first half alone. His total passing yards were the third most that the Jaguars had allowed this season.

Garoppolo and the Niners’ offense were so efficient in the early going that Jaguars defenders were spotted on the sideline arguing and shoving each other.

Recently on 49ers Webzone, I laid out several reasons why the 49ers needed a pass-rusher while featuring Harold Landry from Boston College in No Pass .

The Steelers downed two division winners from in their first two games. They did so without Le’Veon Bell and, perhaps more importantly, with consecutive stout performances from the defense. Cincinnati did manage to rack up over yards of offense on Sunday. However, the key here is that Keith Butler’s defense kept managing to get off the field on third down. Not to mention but we’ll mention , Andy Dalton only pieced together 16 points.

How about the impending return of Bell in Week 4? Two entities don’t want to see that: Is it time to panic in New England? Most Patriots fans would’ve told you back in July that they’d be fine going in the four games without Tom Brady under center. Now that’s the worst they can do. Dare I say Johnny Football? If Bill Belichick can revive that guy’s career, then he’s the best head coach in football history. Well, he might be regardless. Ignore the move down, which is more a commentary on what the Steelers are doing than what Denver isn’t.

Eagles have capable backup quarterback in Nick Foles if something happens to Carson Wentz

Such as going out for a quiet dinner with his wife, Tori, or doing some early Christmas shopping, or taking his 5-month-old daughter, Lily, to see Santa. The most annoying disruption to his privacy: This is not to suggest that Foles is content being an NFL backup. But pickings were slim. We were talking about where we were at this point in our life.

As Stephen Frears’ The Program, about the fall of Lance Armstrong, hits theaters today, we’re taking a look back at 12 people who hated the movies made about their lives. I think that they got every single T-shirt that they had the Mark Zuckerberg character wear right; I think I own all of those T-shirts. And they got the sandals right and all that. And they completely left out the fact that my girlfriend, I’ve been dating since before I started Facebook.

Even Patch Adams hated Patch Adams. In an interview with New Renaissance Magazine , the good doctor and founder of the Gesundheit! There were dumb, stupid, meaningless things Imagine how shallow that is relative to who I am. I just got back from taking 17 clowns to Cuba, which was hit by the worst hurricane in their history. The month before that, we took 30 clowns from seven countries, ages 16 to 65, to Russia for the 17th year in a row. But actually, he was playing Robin Williams.
