See those pennants hanging overhead at this Irish pub? For American football.

Inside joke As I watched Saturday Night Live offer up lame impersonations of Harry Reid and Obama, I couldn’t help but think: I wanna see Kristen Wiig’s Sharron Angle! — Ken Miller, associate editor

Halloween costume ideas A tater tot hot dish would be good. Or maybe just one tater tot. Or Franz Kafka. Or Max! Or a two-headed Franz and Max. — Kristen Peterson, staff writer

Sweet victory My fantasy football win over fellow Weekly editor Ken Miller was sweet—and decisive. A 32-point drubbing, over by halftime Monday night. Say goodbye to first place, Ken. I’ll be there soon enough. — Spencer Patterson, managing editor

Poker face Played two hours of hold ’em next to a Love gymnast. Who knew these guys drink? I always assumed Cirque kept its performers in stimulant-free pods between shows. — Rick Lax, staff writer

Vegas voyeurs On the cover of The New York Times recently: a picture of Las Vegans voting in a supermarket—no story, just the pic. Oh, how the national media love our peculiarities. — John P. McDonnall, copy editor
