Tues Blogcast: Bill O'Reilly; deflecting an asteroid; Broncos historic game

Just One Thing

The Broncos won ugly...but it still counts...on Sunday night. It was only the 2nd 11-10 game in NFL history and the first, a game between the Chargers and Steelers in 2008, only ended up with that score because of an error by the game officials who did not properly credit the Steelers with a Troy Polamalu touchdown at the end of the game. It should have ended 17-10.

I won't get into all the details here but you're welcome to read them for yourself: Here's why Broncos' 11-10 win vs. 49ers should've been the first such final score in NFL history - CBSSports.com

The Steelers didn't put up a fight about the error because it didn't change the outcome of the game from their perspective, though it did impact people who bet on the game as the TD would have had the Steelers covering the spread.

Today's Guest

Bill O'Reilly is arguably the most successful cable news host ever, and also the best-selling author of 12 books in the "Killing" series, the newest of which, published today is "Killing the Legends: The Lethal Danger of Celebrity" and will certainly add to the 18 million books the series has already sold.

He's the proprietor of BillOReilly.com (make sure to emphasize the word "dot" when you say it) and his No-Spin News each weeknight at 4 PM MT: Bill O'Reilly | No Spin News (billoreilly.com)

Much earlier in Bill's career, he worked here in Denver at KMGH (today it's called Denver7) and he sometimes daydreams about moving back to Colorado though I think this state is now so blue that he might as well stay in New York.

King Charles III of England has a new cypher, which will be on stamps and coins and passports and mailboxes, although the rollout will be slow. Some of the minutiae are beyond me but I see some Brits noticing significance in a change in the crown. Below is the new cypher of King Charles III and then, for comparison, Queen Elizabeth's non-Scottish cypher. Also, you'll see, in black and white, the version that will be used in Scotland (with the Scottish crown) for King Charles.

This is hilarious and kinda scary. There is an f-bomb at the end...

NASA's DART mission successfully impacts asteroid Dimorphos to demonstrate our ability to knock a (fairly small) asteroid off course, perhaps to protect the Earth one day. (This asteroid was not on a path to hit Earth.)
