If you're a Jets player and you've had a few pops, all you have to do is dial a number and a car with a security person will arrive. In fact, you might as well have another pop and tip generously because ... you pay nothing for the car. Now if only there were designated dialers...

Ahead of their game against Boise State, the fine folks at Oregon State decided to paint their field blue. When you're a 17 1/2-point underdog (said former college editor, Matt Rennie, who misses very little: "That seems like a high number."), why the heck not? The only real mystery is why these guys aren't wearing masks while they apply the paint. One guy does, however, protect his ear drums.
