6:55 pm
they are not trading him but it got out of happened. >> we live in a generation where every kid gets a trophy. but, when you are in the nfl you do not get a trophy for losing. although the warriors, rather the 49ers 16-point under dogs and they lost by only a field goal. 100 yards rushing and they created four turn overs. but the coach was not buying the moral victory stuff. >> i do not think anybody is patting themselves on the back. the it's about winningment at the end of the day we -- winning. at the end of the day we did
6:56 pm
not win. in any game, whether you win or lose, you have to address what happened in the game and make the proper corrections. it's a systematic approach. >> it was a eighth eighth dweet in a row. now they face the patriots. but it might be easier without their tight end. he took a hit in the loss against seattle. he said it was the hardest hit he has sustained. at first they thought he had a punctured lung. it's questionable if he will play this week. turning to baseball. giants fans, you have to deal with this guy for a long time.

i was reading about this jellyfish that never dies. instead, it reverts to its asexual state and then grows up again. we thought my 90-year-old grandfather had reverted to an asexual state, but the lawsuit from his jamaican caregiver proved us all wrong. my point is, immortality is not only a possibility, it is real. only if you're this jellyfish which periodically reverts to a mass of undifferentiated protoplasm. if i could keep my gmail account, i'd be okay with that. hello, fellas. others: hey. remember when we were trying to figure out what that smell coming from professor tupperman's office was? yeah? turns out it was tupperman. dead at his desk for two weeks. oh, my god. that's terrible. in lieu of flowers, the department chair is asking that everyone donate a bottle of febreze. if we're going to change the topic from jellyfish, i'd be okay with brine shrimp or the history of the unicycle. show a little compassion-- a man died. and turned into a puddle of goo.
