WHos the head in Sams Vid?

Charm City Mom Kate Shatzkin. EL

That's awesome!

Hmmm... I guess Phelps was out of town?

Wow, recaptcha with an umlaut... cool.

I love the WJZ anchors, especially Jessica Kartalija.

HAY! The reindeer did climb down the ladder with care!! :D :D!!!!!

Was that EL's head popping up in the Sam Sessa segment?


Don't be too sad Howie. Maybe they will do something for New Years and ask her to join in.

Was that a walrus in pain at the end?


I loved that video! Last night I went to "Grid Iron Sing-off" at Rams Head Live which featured 5 Ravens' players singing karaoke style. Very funny! Alas, neither Joe Flacco nor Michael Oher were singers. Maybe because they already got their community service points by reciting lines from The Night Before Christmas.

Oope! I meant "community service" as in what the Ravens are obligated to do, not as in some sort of judicial sentence.

Depending on the Ravens player in question, I think both definitions could apply
