Having achieved a signature franchise moment with a Monday night win over the high and mighty New England Patriots, the New Orleans Saints now get to experience another unfamiliar sensation. A December trap game. At 11-0 for the first time in club history, the Saints are big favorites to knock off the Washington Redskins (3-8) today. And for good reason. The Saints average 37 points; the Redskins can't even score 30 in a game. The Saints will clinch the NFC South with a win; the Redskins will clinch a losing season with a loss.

Thank the high heavens there's nothing about thongs on this follow-up to "Unleash the Dragon." This time, Sisqo comes out a little harder and a little more explicit on some cuts: The little platinum-haired guy has grown up. Expect, still, a few modern-day hip-hop and R&B songs, with thin lyrics centering on infidelity, platinum jewelry and fly cars. But the beats behind them are just so bounce-worthy they make up for what's missing. What's nice is Sisqo's reteaming with Dru Hill on the single "Without You."

NEW YORK -- Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen took another big step yesterday toward his goal of creating a technology and entertainment empire, with the $3.6 billion purchase of Falcon Communications, a closely held cable TV company.The transaction, which includes cash, stock and assumed debt, will make Allen's Charter Communications the No. 4 cable television operator in the nation with 5.5 million subscribers.The deal was the latest in a yearlong buying spree that has vaulted the multibillionaire into the top ranks of the U.S. cable industry, which is undergoing an extensive makeover as companies move toward offering phone, Internet and interactive video services over cable TV lines.
