HOLLYWOOD - God bless America, and how's everybody?

The New York Yankees battle the Texas Rangers for the American League pennant tonight. The Yankees are listed by Forbes magazine as the best-paid team in sports. They're followed closely by the Lakers, the Mavericks, and the women the NFL pays to stay quiet.

Brett Favre was grilled by the NFL Tuesday about texting a lewd photo of himself to a New York Jets cheerleader back when he was on the team. She wasn't impressed by the photograph. Sending a picture is nice but it's no substitute for getting tested.

Dallas Cowboys were ripped in the media Tuesday after only one win in their first five games. The season isn't over. Reports indicate that the rescued Chilean miners will be flown to Dallas to discuss possible ways to get the Dallas Cowboys out of their hole by Christmas.

Chile's delegation to the United Nations sent a message thanking the world for its support rescuing the miners last week. It provoked some. Chile's president specifically thanked Jesus Christ, Great Britain and U.S. private enterprise- - the entire anti-Obama coalition.

The U.S. military followed federal court orders Wednesday and began allowing the enlistment of openly gay recruits in the Army. This could help us finally win the war in Afghanistan. If there's one thing Muslim terrorists can't withstand, it's musical comedy.

Russia gave its top medals to 10 spies for spying on America Monday. They were arrested in the U.S. last year, then the U.S. traded the 10 Russian spies for four U.S. spies held in Russia. So you see, we can't even execute a spy swap without running up a 60 percent deficit.
