TLDR SHOW INFO
NFL's Black Monday, Mariah Carey on NYE and little know facts about Darth Vader https://t.co/IaMfR0ugg3— GuysGirl (@GuysGirl) January 2, 2017
Black Monday is known around the NFL as the day at least half a dozen head coaches lose their job. So far there are openings in Denver, Jacksonville, Buffalo, San Diego, LA and San Francisco. We could possibly see jobs in New Orleans and Indianapolis open up before all is said and done.
Ever wonder what goes into hiring a head coach? Sports Illustrated has a good story on just that.
GUYSGIRL OF THE WEEK
Want to dump your fiance before Christmas? One piece of advice is to do it in person instead of via text like this guy.
But this chick made the best of a bad situation by using MNF tickets to the Cowboys, which she purchased for the ex, and instead made a game day sign trolling him.
Stuntin’ on my ex like…

Rest in Peace, Carrie Fisher.
From Mark Hamill: It’s never easy to lose such a vital, irreplaceable member of the family, but this is downright heartbreaking. Carrie was one-of-a-kind who belonged to us all- whether she liked it or not. She was OUR Princess, damn it, & the actress who played her blurred into one gorgeous, fiercely independent & ferociously funny, take-charge woman who took our collective breath away. Determined & tough, but with a vulnerability that made you root for her & want her to succeed & be happy. She played such a crucial role in my professional & personal life, & both would have been far emptier without her. I am grateful for the laughter, the wisdom, the kindness & even the bratty, self-indulgent crap my beloved space-twin gave me through the years. Thanks Carrie. I love you, mh
