My Dolphins fought hard, but in the end a missed field goal allowed the dreaded Jets to win the game in overtime. Our opponent this week is no easy target as we face the 3-0 Arizona Cardinals in Phoenix. Of course, that means that on Sunday, I’ll be at my favorite hang with my favorite Hooters girls in Burbank.
Gott Mit Uns continues in NoHo tonight at 8 p.m. at the Artists Workout Studio (4735 Lankershim Boulevard), Saturday night at 8 p.m. and Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. Tickets are just $15 at the door or online at www.brownpapertickets.com.
