Daenerys Targaryen, Game of Thrones&#8221;</strong></p> <p><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/1WlRyFSJ2mk" width="560" height="315" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> <p>Played by: Emilia Clarke. The only reason she didn&#8217;t rate higher on this list is because technically speaking she&#8217;s only the mother of dragons. But since her main competition from the show makes babies with her own brother, Daenerys gets the nod.</p> <p><strong>9. April Buchanon, &#8220;Eastbound and Down&#8221;</strong></p> <p><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/xczQQ06qJSQ" width="600" height="360" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> <p>Played by: Katy Mixon. Inside blogging: I had to go with this clip since every clip available from &#8220;EB&amp;D&#8221; shows her and Kenny Powers doing and saying stuff that would get you and me both fired.</p> <p><span id="more-7837"></span></p> <p><strong>8. Claire Huxtable</strong></p> <p><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/VPFz_qR2atQ" width="600" height="360" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> <p>Played by: Phylicia Rashad. Through the prism of time, knowing what we now know about what a creepshow Bill Cosby is, it&#8217;s easy to forget how much of a wholesome, prime-time sex symbol Mrs. Huxtable was. The mother of teenagers who didn&#8217;t hide the fact she was as insatiable a sitcom mom this side of Peg Bundy.</p> <p><strong>7. Betty Draper, &#8220;Mad Men&#8221;</strong></p> <p><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/T_BftWMfAUQ" width="600" height="360" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> <p>Played by: January Jones. Full disclosure: I could never get into &#8220;Mad Men.&#8221; But hot is hot.</p> <p><strong>6. Elyse Keaton, &#8220;Family Ties&#8221;</strong></p> <p><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/E_qDeSxYYiM" width="600" height="360" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> <p>Played by: Meredith Baxter. Elyse was the consummate postmodern, former hippie mom who looked like she was 20 years younger than her husband.</p> <p><strong>5. Pam Beesley-Halpert, &#8220;The Office&#8221;</strong></p> <p><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/xebHJQU4Lqg" width="600" height="360" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> <p>Played by: Jenna Fischer. One of my all-time TV crushes. As funny as &#8220;The Office&#8221; was in its prime, I actually got into it more for the Pam/Jim romance than the comedy. Everybody deserves a Pam at their job to raise their eyebrows in adorable fashion at you whenever anybody says something stupid.</p> <p><strong>4. Laura Petrie, &#8220;The Dick Van Dyke Show&#8221;</strong></p> <p><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/ANvMAyXuQpI" width="600" height="360" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> <p>Played by: Mary Tyler Moore. Allow me one mom from TV&#8217;s Late Cretaceous Period, because Mary Tyler Moore&#8217;s blazing heat stands the test of time. She was the Kennedy Era ideal of the sexy suburban housewife. And Dick Van Dyke said recently that the networks had to make her pants baggier because they were too much for America at the time. To this day, my brothers and I call capris &#8220;Laura Petrie pants.&#8221;</p> <p><strong>3. Lorelai Gilmore, &#8220;The Gilmore Girls&#8221;</strong></p> <p><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/RulD4DmoU9g" width="600" height="360" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> <p>Played by: Lauren Graham. Obviously, I never watched chick-oriented dramedy like this. But I doubt there&#8217;s a man alive who wasn&#8217;t searching the net for photo galleries of her. With all due respect to Alexis Bleidel, she was never going to be better than the second best-looking title character on her own show.</p> <p><strong>2. Tami Taylor, &#8220;Friday Night Lights&#8221;</strong></p> <p><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/xMbVZ_H-k84" width="600" height="360" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> <p>Played by: Connie Britton. Simply put: a Texas football coach&#8217;s wife nine. And praise doesn&#8217;t get much higher.</p> <p><strong>1. Gloria Pritchett, &#8220;Modern Family&#8221;</strong></p> <p><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/FPQUWMYXsDM" width="600" height="360" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> <p>Played by: Sofia Vergara.

Luke Kuechly, Vernon Davis and Michael Strahan having a fantasy league of ordinary slobs (like Jim Norton) living their boring lives is inspired. Earning points when the guy remembers his Best Buy gift card and losing them because he&#8217;s still inviting people to join him on LinkedIn is clever, bordering on genius.</p> <p>I recognize Amy Schumer gets some backlash, but I&#8217;m a fan. And even her biggest critic has to acknowledge she&#8217;s putting out some of the best sketch comedy on TV. I mean, it&#8217;s been years since &#8220;Saturday Night Live&#8221; had a skit anywhere close to this level of creativity.

You&#8217;ve got to go where the stories take you. That&#8217;s Blogging 101.</p> <p>Every time you think Lincoln has reached the pinnacle of celebrity, he manages to up the ante. He&#8217;s already got a bill <em>and</em> a coin. His own monument. A car named after him. He&#8217;s in the Washington Nationals&#8217; Presidents Race.

When someone is preserving your last finless brown fish like it&#8217;s an Egyptian pharaoh, you can&#8217;t touch that. Literally. When you get shot in Washington and someone decides your final sewer trout needs to be shipped to Gettysburg and put on display for the teeming crowds who file through the Dime Museum to admire, you know you have really made it in this world.

And if you&#8217;re one of the few remaining holdouts that believe in Joe Paterno&#8217;s sainthood, you&#8217;ll want to hold off on trying to put his statue back up.</p> <p>According to <a href="http://www.pennlive.com/news/2016/05/court_filing_says_joe_paterno.html" target="_blank">PennLive.com</a>, a single line appeared Thursday in a court order on a related insurance coverage case involving the lawsuits against the school. And that line does the impossible; it makes Paterno&#8217;s enabling seem much, much worse:<em><br /> </em></p> <p><em>The line in question states that one of Penn State&#8217;s insurers has claimed &#8220;in 1976, a child allegedly reported to PSU&#8217;s Head Coach Joseph Paterno that he (the child) was sexually molested by Sandusky.&#8221;</em></p> <p><em>&#8220;There is no evidence that reports of these incidents ever went further up the chain of command at PSU,&#8221; Judge Gary Glazer wrote.</em></p> <p>To review: The least of the allegations against Sandusky claimed the abuse began around 1998. To this point, the worst were that it started in 1987. Now we&#8217;ve got a legal document containing testimony, taken under the pains and penalties of perjury, that not only was Sandusky molesting boys <em>40 years ago</em>, but that Paterno knew about it that far back.</p> <p><span id="more-7821"></span></p> <p>In other words, this court filing is saying Paterno first heard that his assistant was raping the bodies, minds and souls of children when he was 50 years old. When he was of sound mind and body. With all of his faculties. Not as the doddering, out-of-touch, coaching-on-autopilot, statue-worthy legend at the end of his days. He coached another 35 years after keeping this report to himself. Through hundreds more games than we thought and two national championships. He ignored the victim, took part in the coverup and enabled this monster to continue through all those future victims simply because the guy could coach linebackers with the best of them.</p> <p>I&#8217;ve assumed before now that JoePa is in hell. Now I&#8217;m hoping he&#8217;s there and getting the Sandusky treatment. Meaning I hope Satan will be teaching him how to shower for eternity.</p> <p><a href="http://bit.ly/1FaCm7U"><img class="alignleft wp-image-2070" src="http://thornography.weei.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/DraftKings.png " alt="DraftKings" width="50" height="50" /></a><em> Experience the thrill of one-week fantasy golf at DraftKings!
