The spread on the Jets-Indianapolis game Sunday is 2 points.
Sunday, 9 September. This game did take place on this day and the victory margin is correct, but the Vegas spread on the game was 1.5, not 2(big difference for gamblers). H2oetry (talk)
Vinny Testaverde is a little less consistent, managing in the last five minutes for example to fumble on the Colts' 2-yard line to a defensive end who then proceeds to run the ball 98 yards to a touchdown
The fumble return was actually only 95 yards instead of 98. The play did begin on the 2 yard line, but the fumble was recovered by defensive end Chukie Nwokorie on the 5 yard line, and that is where the distance of the return begins, not at the play's origin. Here is the boxscore H2oetry (talk)

What's the latest on 4360.0 kilohertz?
4360.0 kilohertz is a shortwave radio frequency used, it is believed, by spies in the Mediterranean. Of course, "Oops, or do I mean megahertz?" is yet another Pynchon Pun, on hurts/hertz, as Avi gives a violent jump when Maxine asks him nice as pie if he's heard anything on that frequency, it being used near Israel.
