Five Spot / Quick hitters on light side

1. AGE-OLD QUESTION

Sources say the Minnesota Vikings are considering playing all of their games outdoors next season, at the University of Minnesota. If that doesn't get Brett Favre to take the hint, the Vikings trainers are also doing away with free glucosamine-chondroitin pills.

2. SNOW GO

Sunday night's Eagles game in Philadelphia was moved to Tuesday night due to an East Coast blizzard. The roads were OK, but Eagles officials didn't want to risk the embarrassment of having the city's plow drivers get booed.

3. REFUND? REFUND?

How galling was the Bills' 34-3 defeat against New England? Russell Salvatore asked for his money back on the bushel of tickets he bought Thursday. The Bills said the best they could offer was free desserts for Salvatore's party.

4. GIVEAWAY DAY

Baked goods are a traditional Christmas gift among friends, but the Bills giving seven turnovers to the Patriots was definitely overdoing it.

5. TAKING A KNEE

Two fans at Sunday's Dolphins-Lions game Sunday in Miami were shown on the scoreboard popping the question to their girlfriends. The question was, "How much did the Dolphins pay Bill Parcells to help build us a playoff team?"
