Have you ever wondered whether it’s possible to “drive a Podracer at 900 mph or more without a windshield or face mask”? Or if you could you survive a “50-foot fall into a snow bank”? Or could you “avoid freezing to death in a blizzard overnight by gutting a dead animal like a tauntaun and getting into its carcass?”

Sarah Silverman is tapped to fill the Dave Chappelle sized hole in Comedy Central’s heart. According to Reuters, the show is called The Sarah Silverman program and will premiere in the summer. Also, she will play a “character — also named Sarah Silverman — whose absurd daily life will be told through an array of scripted comedic scenes and songs.” Joe Franklin can’t like this development.

Anna Benson Cashes in Her Chips

Watch out Nick “the Greek” Dandalos, Anna Benson is coming after you:

Benson could find herself getting plenty of face time on ESPN in the coming year. Not during baseball games, but more likely during one of the network’s ubiquitous poker broadcasts. The wife of Orioles pitcher Kris Benson has been polishing her game by playing nearly every day, whether online, on her cell phone or even live and in person. She also recently signed a deal to endorse and promote a fledgling poker Web site. "I’m still a young little poker player. I’ve got a long ways to go," Benson said. "It is a thrill to me. They call it a sport now, so it’s kind of cool for me to come in and be my own type of an athlete.”

She learned how to play from Rickey Henderson and Bobby Bonilla.

Check out this site decidacted to keeping a database of Dr. Pepper Knock-Offs across the country. If you want to save a few pennies consider drinking the no-frills Dr. Pepper Taste Alikes like Dr. Shaws (only available in New Hampshire), Doc Shasta (available Lawrence, Kansas) or Dr. Smooth (avaiable in Chicago)

But if you want the real thing, I recommend: prune juice, sprite and a good stir.
