Something to pass the time

The WAD is taking a day off today, he must have taken the Steelers and the over.

We'll start, as always, with the clips of the day:

Doctors in China completed the first penis transplant, but had to cut it off two weeks later. The article even tells you it was 4 inches. Nice. Too bad the surgeon wasn't Dr. Wang.

A court ordered Tommy Lee's new band, Supernova, to change their name. Leave five smart guys in a room for long enough, and they'll come up with a sweet new name.

Go here to get something nice for that special lady in your life.

On to the business at hand:

The Pac-10 has admitted that their refs blew several calls against Oklahoma. The instant replay official has been getting death threats.

Let's start with the death threats: I hope those are coming from gamblers and not OU fans, because nobody deserves death threats for deliberately allowing Oregon to keep the ball. Sure, it was a shitty thing to do, but don't threaten to kill the guy.

So now the Pac-10 has confirmed what everybody already knew: OU should have had the ball, which would have likely let them win the game. Should the records be changed? I don't think so. People are outraged at this call because it happened at the end of the game, but if the onside/TD had happened during the last minute of the first half nobody would want the record changed. I think it's something we'll have to live with.
