Jenny the Elephant in Dallas picks the Packers to win!

The Steelers get stomped on and crushed!

Jenny, the most famous of the Dallas Zoo’s six elephants, was called on to pick the winner of Super Bowl XLV at the Giants of the Savanna exhibit. The 10,250-pound pachyderm was given the choice between two watermelons painted with logos for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers.

It didn’t take long for her to decide to smash the Steelers melon, showing that she picked the Pack. Last week, the Fort Worth Zoo’s coati Cody picked the Packers to win as well.

Many in Dallas don’t want to see Pittsburgh win another Super Bowl, so there you have it. Check the video!

iPhone ECG application, another advance in technology

Here’s something that may interest those of you that work in some sort of medical field. I toyed with some Bio Feedback stuff last semester in my psychology course, but the primary function of this little device is wireless EKG transmitting. I’m trying to see if this tool could be worked as a modality and registered into my company’s system, so that we can see the EKG data within our software (I work at a medical imaging company, for those of you who are not already familiar).

View the video below! This is an amazing idea and is only the first step in a much more portable application.

First Young, and now Fisher gone in Tennessee

Just as I predicted over three weeks ago, Jeff Fisher is no longer the head coach of the Tennessee Titans, although I figured it was due to the desire to keep Vince Young as their quarterback. However once they let #10 off the team, I was surprised to learn that they also parted ways with Jeff.

Fisher, who took over as head coach of the then Houston Oilers in 1994, remained with the team when it relocated to Nashville posting a regular season record of 142-120 over 17 seasons. Fisher led the Titans to the post-season six times, four division titles and one Super Bowl appearance losing to the St. Louis Rams in 2000.

The Titans’ front office had become frustrated with Fisher’s pace hiring replacemements. ESPN reported that Fisher had tried to hire his son, Brandon, as a quality control coach, and that that had been the deciding factor in the decision for Fisher to leave.

“I want to thank (owner) Mr. (Bud) Adams and the organization for a special 17 years,” Fisher said in a statement. “I can’t thank the fans enough for the support they showed us through the years; it has been a tremendous experience.  We all did our very best and I think I can look back with fond memories and be very proud of what we accomplished. I want to wish the organization, the current players and the fans nothing but the best in the future.”
