OK this is just too cute for words

Today is National Cat Day. Johnny has a dog BUT he'd most likely also have a cat if Mrs. Johnny wasn't allergic to them. That being said the company Uber is, from 12-4 today hosting #UberKITTENS. If you get our your smartphone and bring up your Uber app and punch in KITTENS your driver will arrive with a gaggle of kittens for you and your office mates to play with, from the Uber blog:

It’s just $30 for 15 minutes of kitten snuggles and every dollar from your visit is donated directly to the participating shelter in your city! In most cities, you’ll also have the option of adopting that little furball you’ve almost certainly fallen in love with. Just ask the local shelter rep assisting with your kitten delivery.

See? How cool and what a great use of a corporate app. Get dialing...

Sorry for the lack of any infotainment today friend-o's, busy day on other matters. It may wind up costing you the entire day ironing things out but Johnny's best free advice in his business is never let a one day issue become a two day issue.

OK, you've been good, here's a late night treat before bed.

A Jersey City Desk Editorial

Know who's not an Ebola expert and doesn't have anyone on full-time staff who really truly has a working understanding of Ebola and what happens in such a global outbreak? Chris Christie.

Know who are experts on the Ebola? The CDC and World Health Organization, both of whom Chris Christie is pretending he knows more than because he's trying to raise money for the flat earth society. Cuomo conceded he didn't know what they know and NY are no longer sending people to Ebola yurts.  If Christie keeps on this path then no doubt Steve Fulop will meet with certain handpicked council members and Toll Brothers to give a 30% tax abatement for 20 years to build Ebola Housing Downtown. Without fail some advertising douche would name it The Virale! Then when they get ready to break ground Toll will tell city planning they don't want stupid Ebola patients anywhere near let alone inside their glamour pad. City Planning will of course capitulate.

We don't want that Jersey City so contact Christie's office and tell him to shut his yapper and listen to real experts. If the World Health Organization or CDC ever wants analysis or lyrical meaning of ANY Bruce Springsteen song they should not hesitate to contact Governor Christie. Christie needs the old "less talk more listen" approach here.

Of all the great art in Jersey City...

...sometimes this is the kind that makes you smile most when you see it.

It's the Saturday night Scoreboard Show!

Penn St. 24 2OT
Dear Penn St., keep the shit off your field

Nebraska 42
Rutgers 24
Rutgers will take home some lovely corncentric parting gifts

Michigan State 35
Michigan 11
A Michigan linebacker brought some kind of spear or stake from Ann Arbor with him and just before the National Anthem ran to the 35 yard line and staked it into an 'S' painted on the field. Michigan State then won the toss and elected to kick the Bejeesus out of Michigan for the next ten years

LSU 10
Mississippi 7
One Mississippi down in the playoff race

Toledo 42
Massachusetts 35
You knew this score would be explosive when you have Minutemen and Rockets involved

Bucknell 22
Georgetown 17
Who says Bison are extinct east of the Mississippi?

Alabama A&M 37
Alabama St. 36
It's the Bulldogs who reign supreme in the state of Alabama small and directional school bowl

TCU 82
Texas Tech 27
A score like this reminds Johnny of the first time he played his godson in Playstation college football and was destroyed

Wabash 70
Oberlin 10
Putting the Bash in Wabash

The Jersey City Desk Game of the Week®
North Carolina 28
Virginia 27
Well, you can't accuse North Carolina of studying game film, or studying much of anything else for that matter but they still schooled (Oh Johnny quit) Virginia.

Rutgers football gameday!

In what a lot of people call the friendliest road trip one can make in college football, the Scarlet Knights are in Lincoln Nebraska today for a morning matchup with the Cornhuskers. Being in central time the game kicks off at 11am in Lincoln and while they have an awesome gameday atmosphere we're not sure how much BBQ one can get around by say 8:30 am to get it smoked and cooked just so before you head into the stadium for an 11am kickoff. See? Rutgers is already flexing their ratings muscle.

Johnny thinks it's going to be a long afternoon for the Knights unless they can force turnovers and lately nobody has been better at trying to give games away via the turnover than Nebraska. The overview is pretty simple, force a couple fumbles, get a pick or two as the Huskers aren't a strong passing team or Ameer Abdullah is gonna get a chance to ram the ball at the RU defense for four quarters. We know Rutgers will play for the entire game, a great program trait so if they can keep it within a score deep into the third quarter well that's how upsets are born.

So finish your frosted flakes New Jersey, still 45 minutes til kickoff.

Fearless Forecast:
Nebraska 31
Rutgers 20
