Bonehead Tip of the Day: This is a true story: Women on phone as she drives up to the gas pump. She takes that spot at the pump but does not get gas. Yes, there is a kid in the car.

The List: Three shows I watched last year but no longer.
1. “House” – He and Cuddy got together. Bad sign.

Closer: This just in: The team that scores the most will win the game. No more analysis needed.
