In case you missed it, on Saturday Arizona Democratic congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head at a rally at a grocery store, by a nutjob identified as Jared L.

If this game is so "important," why is it being played on Monday? Enlighten me with your knowledge below (IN ALL CAPS, PLZ).

And finally, something infinitely more interesting than any football game: THE NEW BRITNEY SINGLE!
