I had a late night last night in which the temperature continued to drop and will be at around -16 in the morning. Along with that, I failed at a firewall installation. I hate it when I fail at stuff like that.

*After the game, Smith said Pitino didn't yell in the locker room, as he sometimes does after tough losses. Instead, the coach approached his players and gave them the "disappointed" card instead. "That definitely hurts more than anything because it's usually just him yelling. But him coming in there an to be pretty much honest with us and not yell, it just shows how really disappointed he is in us. We didn't like that."
Pitino didn't yell at his players and they didn't like it. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Pete Carroll: NFL should explore medical marijuana if it helps players - CBSSports.com
There are only two states in the country where recreational marijuana use is legal and the NFL teams from those two states are playing in Super Bowl XLVIII. So it probably shouldn't come as any surprise that Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was asked about marijuana on Monday.
