Holiday? Show

* The show begins with TK raving about Kelly Ripa, since she was wearing a hot pajama outfit. We learn that Gary's wife Kim sent in an audition tape to Regis when during the search for Kathie Lee's replacement.
* TK reads from the Metro section of the Post about Strike Bethesda (where the PTI Xmas party was) had an investor in the late Yasir Arafat. This leads to a discussion the ethical dilemmas about patronizing a place where the owners's beliefs or whatever conflict with yours. Andy,being Andy, said he'd go until there was a big stink about it and then he probably wouldn't.
* Randy Galloway (Ft Worth Star Telegram) -- Begin with Sad News, as Johnny Oates (former Os and Rangers manager) just passed away. Onto Bill Parcells and hte talk he might not come back next year.
* The Swami James Carville -- PTI and Santa Wilbon got mad props yesterday from both James and Mary Matalin.

Kansas City -7 1/2 Oakland
Detroit -6 Chicago
Buffalo -11 SF
Baltimore +6 1/2 Pittsburgh (james tries get 8 points, to no avail)

* Stephen Hunter on Movies -- Brief praise for the already-discussed Aviator before moving on to other new picutres. Meets the Fokkers -- some laughs, not a lot. Life Aquatic -- Bill Murray's performance is the weak part of the movie, not the Oscar showcase people wanted it to be. "the movie doesn't have a piston to drive it on" Stephen says. Beyond the Sea -- Biggest problem is that you never believe that it's Bobby Darin and it's more like "It's Kevin Spacey playing Bobby Darin."
* Old Guy Radio -- Simon and Garfunkel -- TK talks about watching a Simon and Garfunkel concert on DVD last night. TK saw S&G way back in his Harpur College days. Simon is on Tony's "genius" pantheon, along with Dylan.
* important news -- no show next week. All best of.
* Mailbag

Holiday PTI

Wilbon as Santa. HOW GREAT IS THAT?!?

TK also talks about the O'Neal suspension reduction. He says he's not a lawyer, so he's not as well-informed as he should be on the matter.

Michael Vick's contract was the top story though.

FYI, TK will be on tomorrow morning.

Xmas card etiquette

TK began today by talking about Xmas card etiquette. Don't send pictures of your too-cute kids or your dog. Gary hand-delivered his cards for TK and Andy (trying to save money on stamps). TK is in favor of Xmas cards featuring hot wives.

** Wilbon -- talks about TV sitcoms, black coaches and more. Dont Forget -- Today is the PTI Holiday Special. GOOD ELF, BAD ELF
** Dan Miller from Detroit -- talks about the Pistons' woes and TK's camp counselor
** Mel Kiper Jr -- picks later

Colder than a Witches...

Instead of football, TK begins by talking about how cold it is in DC today. (Join the club, TK).
We then move on to the stadium stuff (see TK's column) and the silly parking plan.
Then, football talk. TK talked about Manning's seemingly unselfish act of handing off to James for a TD rather than trying to throw a TD To tie the record. And then, the silliness of the Redskins' playoff possibilities.

** Mark Maske on the NFL -- talking about Philly (TO injury) and Pittsburgh, as well as the playoff picture
** Jason La Confora on the Redskins
** mailbag -- people bidding on the $20 million Old Guy Radio hats
