NY Giants win 1st play-off game in 11 years – THE NY Giants beat the Minnesota Vikings 31-24 to advance to the next round of the NFL Play-Offs and will face the Philadelphia Eagles for a 3rd time this year.

They are finally believing that they can win close games and have a good shot of beating the Eagles on Saturday night
My wife got us tickets to see A Beautiful Noise: The Neil Diamond Musical . I have always been a big fan of Neil Dimond, and the show was really good. It showed the history of Neil Diamond as told by present day Neil. Was a great trip through his life and songs. Highly recommended, especially if you are a Neil Diamond Fan. Also, give the sound track a listen. Its a good take on the show
My wife also got me Clive Cusslers “The Sea Wolves”, the latest Isaac Bell Adventure. I was extremely surprised and shocked to see the return of Foss Gly, one of the best villains from the Dirk Pitt books. I wrote a while ago on this blog about how Foss Gly was on off my favorite characters.
