Week four's trivia question, ""In Week 1, two different rookies ran for more than 120 yards -- Kareem Hunt and Dalvin Cook. Who is the only other active running back who ran for over 120 yards in Week 1 of his rookie season?"  The answer is Matt Forte who ran 123 yards for Chicago against the Colts in 2008. 

This week's question is "Since the NFL went to the eight-division format in 2002, what are the only two teams from the same division that have met three times in playoff games?"

a.  Texans / Colts
b.  Giants / Cowboys
c.  Seahawks / Cardinals
d.  Baltimore / Pittsburgh
e.  Chiefs / Broncos
This week's winner(s) gets a day off.  Jeff Kalish will cover for you...  Be it yard work, changing the oil in your car, or picking the dingle berries out of your poodle's butt.  What else is Jeff going to do at 1 and 3 while generating only 189 points y-t-d... Aaron Hernandez would have loved the NY Gangster mid-drift that Jeff sports!

Please send your email answers to to E.A. Presley, Editor and Chief.

NY Gangsters

On the Go Spotify Music Player


Spotify is a great way to listen to music.  We have endorsed it here at the OFFL.  Admittedly, there are times that we don’t want our phone to be party’s juke box. With the creation of “The Mighty,” your phone can now have its freedom.  The device is portable and works when you have no internet or data connection. It can hold more than a thousand songs, multiple playlists and it is compatible with Bluetooth (plus wired connectivity).  Shuttle function is on the way…  I am thinking this would kick ass for workouts in the gym.  Get more info and order your Mighty for about $85 at the Mashable online store here. 


Little Johnny (yeah we are wearing these jokes out)


At school, Little Johnny's classmate tells him that most adults are hiding at least one dark secret, so it's very easy to blackmail them by saying, "I know the whole truth." Little Johnny decides to go home and try it out.

Johnny's mother greets him at home, and he tells her, "I know the whole truth." His mother quickly hands him $20 and says, "Just don't tell your father." Quite pleased, the boy waits for his father to get home from work, and greets him with, "I know the whole truth." The father promptly hands him $40 and says, "Please don't say a word to your mother."

Very pleased, the boy is on his way to school the next day when he sees the mailman at his front door. The boy greets him by saying, "I know the whole truth." The mailman immediately drops the mail, opens his arms, and says, "Then come give your Daddy a great big hug!"

2 tbsp  paprika
1 tbsp cayenne"
1 tbsp onion powder
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp white pepper
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp basil
1/4 tsp oregano
4 salmon filets

Approximately 1/2 cup of butter melted (substitute olive oil if feeling healthy)
Mix all the spice above together in a bowl.
Brush salmon with melted butter (both sides).  Then coat/pat with spice mixture.
Over high heat, go five minutes with each side (use butter as needed to avoid sticking to the pan). The filet will be cooked when it has a flaky texture. 

I like to throw the salmon on a bed of kale, lettuce, and spinach  (favorite dressing on the side if needed) with a sprinkle of  shredded mozzarella.  Add diced mango and avocado for cooling sensations.  Enjoy.
