...For The Ride Home: Conan interview to be on Sunday's "60 Minutes," Tim Tebow is popular and Washington holds its breath for tonight's game seven

Well, I'm sick and it's annoying. To show how dedicated we are to you, the fabulous reader, we push through and offer up some wonderfully interesting links to you on this, the first day of the second month. Looked long and hard for a video of Elvis Costello and Allen Toussaint's "Tears, Tears, And More Tears" because I must have rocked that thing at least 16 times yesterday, but much to my chagrin, none such video was found. Instead, a mere photo of the two, looking happier than a box of chocolates. Wednesday means Thursday is almost here. That excites you. Yes, yes it does. Be good, now.

Tim Tebow’s jersey is selling like hot cakes. As if a hot cakes reference is still hip. (Yahoo)

Double time from Lisa: Conan is going to give “60 Minutes” his first interview since NBC blew up. It will be Sunday. No word if Andy Richter will be watching. (Washington Post)

“At least some of our national legislatures feel compelled occasionally to dial it back, if, for no other reason, than the fact that they occasionally are called upon to appear on national television and pretend that David Gregory is smart.” Love Charlie Pierce on “Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me.” (Esquire)

Nobody likes the Cleveland Indians. Except for Drew Carrey, of course. (Wall Street Journal)

Ricky Gervais will host the Golden Globes again. Mel Gibson sighs. (Entertainment Weekly)

If the Caps lose tonight, there’s going to be some trouble ‘round D.C. (ESPN)
