[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i'm jimmy, i'm the host. thank you for watching. thank to all of you for coming. love is in -- well, it's almost in the air. it's not in the air yet but it will ob sunday which is valentine's day. i hope you remember that. valentine's day the day women all around the world wait eagerly to discover the new and wonderful ways their husbands and boyfriends will disappoint them. how does it work with gay men who are married? do they both give each other disappointing gifts? do they ever run into each other in the valentine's day crap aisle at cvs on the way home from work?
11:37 pm
the edible underwear right out of the box? you're not doing it right. americans are expected to spend $681 million on valentine's day gifts for their pets this year. this is by the way how we know we have too much money. when we're spending $681 million on a valentine that doesn't see any difference between chocolate and poop. either one, equally delicious. you know, in the movie "ghostbusters 2" which came out in 1989 they say the world is going to end on valentine's day 2016. which is sunday. which is good news if you haven't made a dinner reservation yet, you're off the hook. sarasota sarasota, florida. they're asking people who have been through a breakup recently to donate their ex's old belongings for valentine's day. whatever they left behind, take to it them. if they do, they'll give you one of these stickers, i donated my
11:38 pm
[ cheers and applause ] it's a great idea. they should rename themselves good riddance instead of good will. it's much more charitable to donate your ex's stuff to a good cause, yes. it's also so much less satisfying than setting it all on fire and dumping on it the hood of their car. you know, there's always a lot of pressure, especially for guy, to find the right gift on valentine's day. flowers always, when in doubt, go with flowers. even if it seems boring. if you're looking to get more creative, some gentlemen consider this. >> this valentine's, give her the gift that tells her exactly what you think of her. the i still treat you like a little girl charm bracelet. delightful keepsake charms. a sparkly hairbrush. a doll house. a tiny diary. an adorable kitty cat. she may be a full-grown woman with a career and more education

[ cheers and applause ]
11:40 pm
i'm sarah palin. is today my birthday? you betcha! i'm 29 years old but the lamestream media says i'm 52. i support donald trump. because we need a state tutor in the white house. i know state tutors because i once tutored a whole zoo from my helicopter. well, i got to go make my husband todd a moose pie. obama's the antichrist, bye-bye! >> jimmy: thank you, lindsay. there you go.
11:41 pm

11:43 pm

how long are you known each a team? >> i hate to say it, 35 years. i was a summer intern, he was a slightly older gentleman even then. >> right. i maintain that distance as time goes on. >> we worked together for 22 years at "the washington post" before anybody said, you should be on television. which we thought was a joke. >> well yeah. >> jimmy: whose idea was it to pair you on television? >> mark shapiro. >> when he was running espn. >> jimmy: he saw you and he said, oh, these guys would be great? >> what he wanted to do, espn at that point did not have a commentary show, did not have an opinion show. and he felt if you're going to have an opinion show, which he thought the network needed, it would be great to have it from washington, d.c. because that's where all the sunday talk shows, the political shows are from, opinion shows. he'd seen us work together on a variety of espn things and thought it would be a good idea. >> he said the first thing he

12:29 am
confrontations with people? >> you know what, most of them -- it's different when you criticize somebody when you're a writer, writing for a newspaper. that's just criticism. when you criticize, you know this, you say mean things on television, you're part of the show. there's a different perception. >> ask him about chip kelly and how that's working out. >> i was not one of the national lap dogs when it came to proclaiming chip kelly's genius. >> he killed them. >> i criticized people who -- >> he killed chip kelly. >> i was critical of chip kelly. >> genius. >> i spoke to him last week at a super bowl party. >> jimmy: and? >> 20 great minutes talking about pro basketball, talking about travel. stuff he wouldn't do. all kinds of stuff. >> he was gleeful when kelly got fired. >> i'll show you the text he sent me when i told him i had a great conversation with chip kelly, it's not repeatable. >> the last two words followed by six exclamation points are
12:30 am
