In the NFL, it was Monday Night Football between the Dallas Cowboys and the Chicago Bears.  And it was freezing!  Chicago has become an enigmatic team behind veteran back-up quarterback Josh McCown.  He’s played solid, but you never know how the team is going to play as a whole.  Chicago came out and absolutely obliterated the Cowboys.  The Bears scored on every possession, and Josh McCown threw a whopping 5 touchdowns.  On top of that, the Dallas defense looks putrid, and are in absolutely no position to take on any team with a competent offense.  Cowboys are in trouble.  Chicago 45, Dallas 28.

And in college football, with the regular season over, the Heisman finalists have been announced.  This year there are 6:  4 quarterbacks, and 2 running backs.  For the QBs, it’s Florida State’s Jameis Winston, Norther Illinois’ Jordan Lynch, Alabama’s AJ McCarron, and returning champion Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M.  And for the running backs, Boston College’s Andre Williams and Auburn’s Tre Mason.  It’s likely that freshman Jameis Winston will bring home the prize, considering that the Seminoles are undefeated and he is a big reason why.  But, you never know until the answer pops up.


Finally, in baseball, it’s the end of an era as 36-year old pitcher Roy Halladay has decided to retire.  Halladay had an amazing career rising to prominence in Toronto, then decided to sign with the Philadelphia Phillies.  In his 16-year career, Halladay threw both a no-hitter and a perfect game in the same season; a season in which he won the NL Cy Young Award.  Halladay signed a 1-day contract with Toronto so that he could retire a Blue Jay — the team that loves him the most.  A great career for a first ballot Hall-Of-Famer.
