Fantasy football and rear ends; Wishes for the New Year; Fireworks at Riverfront?; Stu Berman eats at Del Frisco’s?; Stop firing in Salem; Afraid of the unknown


The column that asks, is the only reason men watch pro football is to make money with fantasy points while the women only watch the rear ends of the quarterbacks, and how about Mike Trout getting a game ball from Carson Wentz after the two went hunting together, making Cumberland County the most famous hunting woods in the sports world.

Expand the Greater Bridgeton Amish Market with outlets straight out of Lancaster, Pa., on the other end of the big, red barn.

Plunder all possible resources to make the Bridgeton and Millville Police Athletic Leagues the strongest budgeted programs for kids in both cities, way more important than DARE and drug education and “Just say no” programs that haven’t worked in years.

Bring Willie Sanchez out of retirement.

Get Verna Herman on “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” and then suggest host Guy Fieri go over and join Mike Trout for lunch at Jim’s Lunch and look at the football Carson Wentz gave him today.

Give Sal DiLisi his own DiLisi’s Ristorante billboard — any billboard.

Somebody open up Adobe Joe’s on North Laurel Street adjacent to The Hacienda.

“To the person shooting their gun off in Salem, please stop!

“Just a thought!”
— worried in Salem
YOU CAN BOOK IT: We’re thankful we made it through another year, yet we believe every Sunday a better life awaits us and we cry the other six days about our world and us in it, and, yet, we’re scared to death to leave it.
