Brad's afternoon edition. Click here to read his morning edition.
* Spike TV is offering $10 million for anyone who offers proof of the existence of Bigfoot. I know we just turned the clocks back. Did we turn 'em back to 1973?
* On Sunday, already there were reports of chaos at Miami-Dade County polling places with the early voting. Remember the good old days when we didn't have to worry about chaos in Florida until nine seconds after the polls officially opened?
* President Obama plans to end his campaign outdoors in Iowa on a chilly Monday night. If it gets too cold, the Obama team will just burn copies of the Des Moines Register to stay warm.
* This weekend we gained one hour. Which is great news. For followers of the Mayan calendar, this means we've delayed doomsday by 60 minutes.
* Instead of one hour, President Obama introduced a amendment to turn back the clocks to before the first debate.
* Right now I'm trying to determine which is the tougher assignment for a reporter – being sent into the middle of a hurricane, or trying to talk to Bo Pelini at the end of the first half.
* OPPD sent a team to New York to help in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Five minutes after arriving, the OPPD guys raised everybody's rates.
* A final Bob Kerrey campaign event has been scheduled: “The 1 Million Disgruntled Deb Fischer Neighbor March.”
* I saw a report on the news about Koshik, a “talking elephant” who can be clearly and easily understood. Is it possible to replace James Carville on Election Night with Koshik?
* A woman in Nevada was arrested for trying to vote twice. I don't know about you, but I'm getting fed up with the undecideds. “OK, that's one vote for Obama. Now I'll get back in line and vote for Romney.”
* Late in the Nebraska-Michigan State game, a referee threw a flag for pass interference against Michigan State after the Husker band shouted for it. In Michigan State's eyes, it lost the game due to a questionable call by a tuba player.
* Notre Dame beat Pittsburgh in triple overtime. Three Pitt players played despite being charged with assault during the week. When a Pitt field goal attempt sailed just wide at the end of the second overtime, I believe it was blown by a wind called karma.
* A World Series fan in San Francisco claims police ticketed her for trespassing after she fell out of the bleachers and landed behind the center field fence. Police did cut her a break, opting not to file littering charges for the cup she dropped on the way down.
