+4 After a horrible season that includes eight straight losses, the Washington Redskins fire Mike Shanahan as coach. Maybe Nutzy the Flying Squirrel is available?
-5 In the days after Christmas, holiday decorations start coming down across town. What are we without tacky lights? A poor man's Charlotte.
