"Did Anybody Catch That Play?"

Every once in a while, a commercial comes along that captures a moment in time.

This new State Farm commercial - showing some football referees who didn't see a play but have to make a call anyway - hits home, especially given the controversy over the non-call that happened in Monday night's game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Detroit Lions.

To set it up: The Lions were running the ball in for a touchdown that would have put them ahead of the Seahawks. The ball carrier had the ball stripped just shy of the end zone. It bounced into the end zone, and Seahawks player batted it out of the field of play.

That's a penalty, and it should have given the Lions the ball back at the one-yard line. Just about every one agrees, from the NFL vice-president in charge of officiating to the Seahawks' coach, Pete Carroll. So the Lions had one snatched away from them by some referees.

Now watch the commercial, which you can bet aired during Monday night's game.

And This Guy Wants to Be President?

Sitting down for an interview recently with SHOWstudio - I have no idea what that is - Kanye West had a lot to say about Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

He referred to the reality TV show as "an art form."

And he believes the show should be winning all sorts of awards. "... my wife and my family should’ve had plenty of Emmys by now.”

Here's a little award-winning art for you to savor while you munch on Kanye's thoughts.

How's This For a Guard Dog?

Check out this terrific surveillance video from a house in Monrovia, California.

A 20-pound French bulldog managed to chase two decent-sized bears off his owner's property.

Either bear probably could have had the dog for dinner, but the dog had other plans.

You know what they say: it's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.

"This Time, It's Really, Really Personal"

In Back to the Future II, Marty McFly traveled to the future.

And while he was there, he passed a cinema that was advertising Jaws 19.

Funny idea, and an homage to Steven Spielberg, I guess.

Now that Back to the Future II is marking its 30th anniversary - which hardly seems possible - someone put together a promo for Jaws 19.

And it's hilarious.

Check it out...

"Are You Crazy? We Don't Have to Work Anymore!"

A woman in Michigan became a millionaire many, many times over this week, after hitting the $310 million Powerball jackpot.

Julie Leach was working an overnight shift at a fiberglass factory when she found out.

She says she quit her "nasty, dirty job" automatically.

She plans to use the money to pay off her current debts, travel, and then buy up land and build houses for her kids and grandchildren.

It's so refreshing to find someone honest about quitting her job.

Don't you just loathe those lottery winners who say, "Oh, I'll keep my job."

CNN and Anderson Cooper have a special running about the impact of social media on today's teenagers called #BeingThirteen.

As part of the build-up around the show, celebrities were asked to post picture of themselves at the age of 13, and to describe how it felt.

And some of the pictures... Well, check out a few for yourself.

Or visit Twitter and use #Being13 to see the whole collection.

Former Miss USA, Olivia Culpo:

Oh my gosh. So here it is #Being13-- chubby cheeks, brow game STRONG, awkward smile, are my eyes open?whats with the headband string??? -- ah #being13. Not really sure who you are or what the world is all about. I really feel for the younger generation and the tremendous amount of pressure young girls feel today to appear "perfect," basically holding an unrealistic expectation of face, body, social life etc. Everyone, no matter who you are, will never measure up to "perfect" because it doesn't exist. And however close you come to this "perfect" mold should not define how you feel about yourself or what you think others perceive you as. Photoshop, Instagram "highlight reels," and that 1/1000 perfect selfie have altered reality and created an unreachable standard. I think at the end of the day, no matter who you are, everyone struggles with insecurities and we're all in this together as women battling a time that is very much influenced by social media and these socially glorified images that set a standard of perfection. I'm not saying it's bad to post a picture that you think you look good in or take a selfie. I just wish young girls didn't feel sick over comparison and inevitably failing to measure up. So if you're 13 years old and awkward, be 13 and awkward! Same with 14 and 15 and every age. As cliche as it sounds- love the skin you're in. And love one another because we're all going through the same thing.

And even Anderson Cooper:

Light Xenophobia with Just a Dash of Diplomacy

It's been about a week since Trevor Noah plopped into the chair vacated not so long ago by Jon Stewart on The Daily Show.

While the comparisons are flying, I've got to say, Trevor's holding his own.

Check out the piece he did on Donald Trump last week.

Some pretty interesting comparisons between the Donald and the president of South Africa - Trevor's home country.

He's almost as biting as Jon - and I think once people get used to him in that seat, they'll grow fond of him too.

How about you? Have you caught him yet?

Trevor questions whether or not Donald J. Trump is presidential material.?Watch last night's full episode: http://on.cc.com/1VsmBnY

The Hanson Brothers Skate Again

Remember the Paul Newman movie, Slap Shot, about a small-town hockey team that comes alive with the addition of three hard-hitting glasses-wearing brothers.

Well, so do a lot of people, like the Pittsburgh Penguins in the National Hockey League.

The Hanson Brothers laced up in their Chiefs gear and had some fun in the Penguins locker room last week.

Check out the post - great picture.

Getting ready for hockey, Johnstown-style. All we're missing is the foil. Puck drops for Kraft Hockeyville USA now. Tune in on NBCSN or on the Penguins app. GAME ON.

"No He Didn't, Mommy!"

Lots of people put a lot of stock in their relationships with celebrities, even though the relationships aren't real.

Kids do that a lot, decided that when they grow up, they're going to marry so-and-so.

Like this little girl.

She was in love with Adam Levine. Looks like she meant to marry him.

And then mom broke the news that Adam was actually married.

Watch her reaction...

Sadly, for this little girl, Adam Levine of Maroon 5 is married.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6zoB1nbFjs

"Maybe God Intended Number 400 To Be the One That Wins This Game"

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees threw his 400th touchdown pass over the weekend, joining an elite club that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady joined just a week ago.

Pretty momentous occasion, when you come right down to it. Only the fifth guy in NFL history to accomplish that.

Afterwards, Drew talked about how God orchestrated the whole thing.

Check it out.
