1) "It's sad but I'm actually a Packers stock holder," said Ben Beadling, from Rochester, Minn., a Vikings fan. Apparently his mother-in-law bought him a stock as a sick joke. His wife Laura Manydeeds, originally from Eau Claire, is a Packers fan who now lives with her husband in Green Bay. "My dad has Packer tickets and we don't have kids yet," she joked, as they kissed before Saturday night's playoff at Lambeau Field between the Packers and Vikings.

AND FINALLY,

A photo of a drunk man duct-taped to his seat after he attacked a woman and screamed their plane was about to crash has gone global, after a fellow passenger posted it online.

The photo was posted on Tumblr by passenger Andy Ellwood, who wrote about the incident on his own account.

They were on a New York-bound intercontinental flight from Iceland to JFK.

Ellwood recalled: "(Passenger) drank all of his duty free liquor on the flight from Iceland to JFK yesterday."

"When he became unruly, (i.e. trying to choke the woman next to him and screaming the plane was going to crash), fellow passengers subdued him and tie him up for the rest of the flight. He was escorted off the flight by police when it landed."

The man, who remains unknown, was arrested when the plane touched down.
