Thank you Jay Leno! 20+ years of being our comforting voice every weeknight. Last night’s final episode was incredibly touching.

10th Annual Alfred Mann Foundation Gala

Katy Perry – “Dark Horse”

Bruno Mars – his entire halftime show….and especially the song “Runaway Babe”

I’m obsessed with all the “#SochiFail“…I love seeing terrible hotels.

This video:

Iowa State’s win over Oklahoma State…that was a great game.

Mock fantasy baseball drafts…yep, it has started

Being able to get out…and then back up…sloped driveways…successfully…should be a moments of triumph.

All the Jay Leno tributes….a true legend…and apparently, someone counted this…he made 4,607 Bill Clinton jokes…how many Judge Ito ones? Oh , there it is…795 OJ Simpson jokes. Thank you Internet.

In this season of Romcom Movies…I still stand by Notting Hill as the best one.

Kim & Kanye’s baby being bestowed with the nickname “Ignori” by the Internet because they seem to never be anywhere near Nori.

Katy Perry apparently spent thousands at a strip club after the Super Bowl. Everything about that sentence is good.

Nearly being done with reading “Monuments Men“…and the movie opens today…if I wait ’til Tuesday, I’ll have done it!

Rolling Stone named this the best SNL Sketch of all-time…

I was glad to see the Jeffrey’s one got some love…underrated, but hilarious.

My favorite…the Ray Romano on Sportscenter one.

Captain Phillips is an incredible movie…even though I fell asleep for 10 minutes…but I blame too much bacon & beer on that one!

The snowstorm…why? Because it allowed me the time to get hooked on “House of Cards”. Holy cow…incredible show. Peter Russo…you are AWESOME.

New York Premiere of 'House Of Cards'

Sunday Night….Disney Junior Live: Pirates & Princesses. 3 of my kids favorite things….Jake, Sofia, and Doc…all together? Preparing for the $15 snowcone…but at least it’ll be in a Scully hat.

The Super Bowl…Lego-style

Speaking of which…The Lego Movie looks incredible. My son & wife are going for sure…somehow she’s replaced me as his “movie buddy”. Everything is AWESOME!

Juan Pablo and Clare getting it on in the ocean…and then having regrets…ahh…the saga of a one-night stand.

This mashup….if you put “Let It Go” into anything…I will enjoy it.

AWESOME is as AWESOME does!
