I forgot the greatness of Paul Blart: Mall Cop (the original)
The kids needed a laugh, I needed a laugh, my wife just needed a night without football on TV. Enter Paul Blart: Mall Cop. Why? It just happened organically. Facebook didn’t run an ad in the middle of the afternoon after hacking into my brain. I didn’t see some tweet featuring a Paul Blart GIF during my OutKick shift. One thing led to another and we were all laughing at Blart saving the mall from the credit card hacker before he could get away with Amy and Paul’s daughter to the Cayman Islands.
A couple of weeks ago after the death of Police Academy Officer Laverne Hooks, I mentioned how they just don’t make 1980s comedies these days and how I’m getting to the age where I need those laughs. Blart did his job last night. Sometimes, when you haven’t seen the sun much over the last 6-8 weeks, you need a hero mall cop to brighten the day.
You guys know what this means. I’m going to spend the football off-season diving into the comedy classics. I nearly fired up Naked Gun before settling on Blart. Yes, that’s going to lead to a dive into Police Squad, which will most likely lead back into a Police Academy bender, which will lead into 48 Hours and ultimately into Beverly Hills Cop. Before the daffodils come up, I expect to have covered most of Leslie Nielsen’s IMDB.
This is weird, Blart might’ve just turned me into a movie nerd.
• I can’t wait to see caravans of Bills fans making the drive to Kansas City where the get-in price is $650 for Sunday’s game. Arrowhead will allow around 17,000 fans into the game and it looks like tailgating is allowed. Folks, we are in for a semi-legitimate atmosphere for the AFC Championship game.
• Here’s something I never knew. @VitalVegas, one of the most in-the-know Vegas insiders says that Binion’s million-dollar money display was more like $4,600 on display. Vital’s report Monday was that the display may never come back after things return to normal. It seems like you wouldn’t drop a promo that people flock to if it’s just $4,600 on display. This one deserves a deeper dive.
• While it has barely snowed this winter here in northern Ohio, the Saharan sand dunes received snow this week. It’s just the fourth time in recorded history that it’s happened.

I’m told this is the limousine that will be waiting to pick up Joe Exotic if he receives the pardon tomorrow.
The lead advocate of Team Tiger tells me they’ll be taking him to a secure location. He says Joe doesn’t want anyone to see him until his hair his done. @koconews https://t.co/SICtee1AIl pic.twitter.com/AZATiyleig

A lot of people are saying that Melania Knauss was born 26 April 1970 in Slovenia. If true, today she would be 18,530 days old, which was Wilford Brimley's age on the day 'Cocoon' was released. We believe @MELANIATRUMP has reached the Brimley/Cocoon Line. pic.twitter.com/hj798knljh
