QUESTION….Weird request here. I own the box set of The Office, and yesterday I was looking for the series of outtakes in which Tim is sitting in the break room with Keith, who is eating a Scotch egg. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, no problem, but if you do, can you tell me where to find it? One of the disks has an “Outtakes” special feature, but the Scotch egg series isn’t included. So where is it?

And while everyone is off pondering that, I’m off to watch USC teach Oregon how to play football. It’s on ABC this week, unfortunately, since last week’s game (on Fox Sports Net) was called by a goofy pair of announcers who turned me into a fan by the end of the game. I mean, it was sort of like listening to Beavis and Butthead call the game, but they were just right for a 70-17 blowout.

FIRST HALF UPDATE: Hmmm. This is not going according to plan. Oregon’s defense sure is playing tough.

FINAL UPDATE: That’s more like it. Final score 45-13. I guess we’ll allow them one shaky quarter.

Gotta admit, though, that Oregon got screwed by the refs. It wouldn’t have changed the outcome or anything, but still.
