Sunshine on a Cloudy Day
In the first 2 hours of the next longest day of his life, Jack Bauer watched cartoons with his granddaughter, helped a scumbag informant try to escape, killed one dude with a fire axe to the chest while at the same time causing another dude to fall to his death down some stairs.
He then saved a guy from a RPG that took out a helicopter, had Chloe hack into a government computer system, accessed a secure armory to get a gun, blackmailed the head of CTU, and sent his daughter and grandchild back to California.
I haven't done that much in the past 6 years.
And if having my favorite tv character back for the next 22 weeks isn't enough?
Brett Farve and the Vikings beat the Cowboys and as a bonus FOX gave us numerous shots of Jerry Jones on the sidelines looking like he was getting ready to hurl while alternating with shots of the Vikings owner, who is named Ziggy by the way (How awesome is THAT? He's named ZIGGY!) chugging down some Dom at the same time.
Throw in Rex Ryan and the ragtag JETS beating San Diego and all in all?
To paraphrase that great lyricist Ice Cube?
It was a good day.
