While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.

Yes, it’s the start of another week, but pull yourself out of the Monday blues with a tall glass of O.J. (… plus alcohol). November 8 is National Harvey Wallbanger Day - like a Screwdriver, only fancier.

Harvey Wallbanger is said to have been a Manhattan Beach surfer who frequented Donato "Duke" Antone’s Blackwatch bar in the 1950s. Antone, a three-time world champion bartender, named the drink after him.

The International Bartender Association calls for three parts clear vodka, one part clear Galliano (a sweet, herbal liqueur) and six parts fresh orange juice. Garnish with an orange slice and maraschino cherry, sit back and relax.

What's on TV?

    The only possible thing that might save him is that Jerry won't want an interim coach for this weekend @NYG, but I am sure that by now he knows that the season is over. Also not sure if he is going to want to hire someone with the probability of a lockout next season, you know?

    As the smell of freshly grilled Brats wafted through the air at Lambeau Field,The Wonder Dog and I looked at each other as we both picked up the faint scent of Blood at the same time. Yes,The Greatest Massacre since The Alamo in 1836 was about to take place before our eyes. As the Packer fans worked themselves into a Frenzy I was certain they would have eaten their young if enough Cheese had been poured upon them. Their attention was focused on 53 men standing along the sidelines,licking their lips as they fantasized about Wade Philips being grilled over a huge Bon-Fire.
    Fast Forward to games end–A faint chant was beginning in the lower left of the field,growing louder,stronger..Jerry,Jerry,Jerry! All eyes were focused on him sitting in the Owners suite looking dumbfounded as usual. I knew what they wanted as I whipped out my slide rule doing some basic calculations only to find that If Jerry did The Lambeau Leap from there He would have landed on the Fat Lady singing in Section 331-Row 42 and survived! Sigh! I haven't seen this many guys crying since they closed down The Chicken Ranch in La Grange TX over 30 years ago. As the screen Finally faded to Black,I could hear singing in the background. It was Dandy Don-Turn out the lights,The Party's over...

      The Pilsbury Doughboy coach flew home with Jerry on his private jet-a rarity as he always flys on the team plane. Jerry will address the team this morning and will hold a prees conference around noon Today!
