Think this afternoon’s Olympic hockey game between the USA and Canada is important in Chicago? A company named DNAinfoChicago put up an electronic billboard in the Windy City that shows a photograph of USA (and Chicago Blackhawk) hockey player Patrick Kane on one side … Team Canada (and Chicago Blackhawk player) Jonathon Toews on the other side and Justin Bieber in the middle. The caption says … Loser Keeps Bieber! I think this is hilarious and makes me want to root for the USA even harder!
The new 2014 Tampa Bay Buccaneer logo was unveiled yesterday on the NFL Network by past Buc player Warren Sapp and current Buc Player Gerald McCoy. The logo is very similar to the old logo but is larger, has a different color football and a slight alteration of the skull. The helmet will also have a chrome faceguard (the first NFL team to have a chrome faceguard). This is the first change in the Buc logo in 17 years and the team is ready with a new look for new head coach Lovie Smith!
The states of Colorado and Utah are discussing the possibility of hiking the legal smoking age from 18 to 21 years of age. The states want to treat tobacco like alcohol.

The measure has to pass several votes before it is close to becoming law.
