Super Bowl week is finally here, Rockets, a goofy Florida rapper arrest, Cavs masturbating and more: The update for Jan. 30

Super Bowl week is here, which means five more business days of overhype, parties and people descending on downtown Houston like locusts, followed by a weekend of madness.

In case you missed it, I provided a list of my favorite bars, restaurants, etc. in Downtown/Eado/Midtown/Montrose.  Last week we gave you some things to watch out for.

Today I will be at the Gridiron Glory exhibit at TSU from noon-2 p.m., featuring artifacts, jerseys, etc. from the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It is a very cool exhibit. Then at 4 p.m. it is the Blitz as usual from Radio Row, where you can expect every station in the city to brag about their guests when we are all getting the same ones.

It’s not my favorite week of radio, because there are so many guests it just becomes a frenzy, and a lot of them are people we would never interview in an average week. But every now and then you get that one awesome interview that becomes pure gold, and it makes it worthwhile.

We will post the best ones here and let you know when we catch gold.

GM news: The Colts got their man in former Chiefs assistant Chris Ballard. You never really know with GM hires but if you are getting into that Chiefs pipeline and need defense, you are probably OK with this hire. The 49ers, meanwhile, went full 49er and hired a guy with no experience in John Lynch. Great “communication” skills. Of course he has great communication skills. He’s a TV analyst. The 49ers are the new Browns.

Rockets fall again: The Rockets continue to struggle, losing to the Pacers.  The Rockets are still third in the Western Conference, but only 4-6 in their last 10 games and looking very mediocre over that stretch.

Pro Bowl: Are you kidding? Does it really matter? Did anyone actually watch it? If so, do you live alone with a bunch of cats? Here’s your recap if you really must. Shame on you.

Horse racing recap: It was a big day at Sam Houston yesterday, with Unbridled Mo taking the $400,000 Ladies Classic. Arrogate rolled in Saturday’s Pegasus Cup at Gulfstream, while California Chrome’s last race was a disaster. They tried to milk one too many races out of him.

Stiches get…snitches? I am not familiar with the rapper Stiches, but you have to love the way his latest arrest went down. Weed, Oxy, a gun and a handicapped parking spot. Only in Florida.

And finally: The job of sideline reporter is completely useless. But hey, somebody has to get paid a lot of money to ask bad questions and get canned answers. This one basically summed up her career choice in one word when asked what the Cavs were doing during a timeout. Allie Clifton, well played.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“The American people are sheep. They’re comfortable, rich, working. It’s like the Romans, they’re happy with bread and their spectator sports. The Super Bowl means more to them than any right.”

— Jack Kevorkian

HOTTIE OF THE DAY

So welcome to H Town. This was a search for “Hot women/Houston” as we try to highlight the local scene. We have a lot of these in H Town. Of course, I am disgusted by having to post photos like this, but we do what we must.

  1. Over/Under how many times someone on TV will say “Houston, we have a ______” at some point during the week. I’m betting over 10 times on Sunday alone.
