Sports Columnist, Wall Street Journal. Chatty Cathy, Fox Sports 1. Book LITTLE VICTORIES coming in 2015 from Doubleday.

Super Bowl Week Is Already Crazy — I am not a scientist. I am not an expert in footballs. I am not an expert in football measurements. I am just telling you what I know. I would not say I am Mona Lisa Vito of the football world. Super Bowl XLIX is still days away, and already, it's my favorite Super Bowl ever.

Patriots Saga Goes Round and Round — I am just going to assume here that you are a more sophisticated and civilized person than I am, that you are a Journal reader of decorum and manners, and you do not spend your day giggling into your coffee over juvenile humor, but I'm sorry, about five minutes into that news conference Thursday featuring Tom Brady , I was howling on the floor like I was 11 years old and back on the playground in my corduroys.

The Patriots’ Deflation Investigation — "Psst...Did you hear? "Footballs." "They're onto the footballs." "Eleven out of 12 from Sunday's game. Mortensen had it on ESPN. " "What do you mean 11 out of 12. Who messed up the 12th?" "Unclear." "Well, the headline puns are out of control." "Yes: The headline puns are out of control."

Ducks! Buckeyes! Playoff Party at JerryDome — On Monday night in Texas, the University of Oregon Ducks face the Ohio State University Buckeyes for the finale of the inaugural big-time college football playoff dance party. The game takes place at Jerry Jones's Discount Big-Screen Television Supply Store.

From the Knicks, a Distress Signal — A flop, ha! That's putting it mildly. A disaster! A catastrophe! An outrage! A guaranteed-to-close-in-one-night-beauty! -Max Bialystock, "The Producers" By now, you must have heard about the overwrought tragicomic opera that is the 2014-15 season of the New York basketball Knicks. At the moment, the Knicks have a record of 5 wins against 32 losses.

Chris Christie’s Cowboys Lasso — By now, you have no doubt seen the video of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie excitably hugging-it's really more of a failed high-five followed by a grabby hug-snuggle-Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on Sunday during Dallas's playoff victory over Detroit. I have enjoyed watching this video, and have watched it at least a half-dozen times.

A 2015 Sports Wish List — This is the season of 2015 sports predictions, but it's silly to write a column of sports predictions. If I really knew what was going to happen in 2015, would I tell you? I love you, I appreciate you, and mean no disrespect, but: I would not. I would tell a licensed casino.

Sienna Miller on Motherhood, Her New Movies, and Why She'll Never Be on Twitter — Once an It girl living in the tabloid glare, Sienna Miller has found domestic bliss-while landing the best roles of her career. Is it Twittering or Tweeting?" Sienna Miller asks, before answering her own question. " Tweeting. I find it weird, that word. It just sounds babyish. There's something so ridiculous."

The Sports Year-End Whoop-De-Do List — Yes: It appears that Khaki Kingpin Jim Harbaugh may indeed be on his way to the University of Michigan. But right now it's time for the Journal's end-of-year sports whoop-de-do. At this point, you've probably read plenty of end-of-year whoop-de-dos, all over the place, and you might be, to put it politely, fatigued.

‘Jim Harbaugh’ Goes to Michigan — Ann Arbor, Mich. The holidays were approaching and I was fighting a cold and under the spell of over-the-counter cold medicine, and then I had a hot chocolate, and a coffee, or two coffees, and I got a little overexcited and I thought it would be a good idea to dress up as Jim Harbaugh and go walk around the University of Michigan for the day.
