It seems like the New England Patriots are magnets for controversy.
The whole Deflategate thing is finally winding down, but now the 10 & 0 Pats have another tempest brewing.
At least this one isn't about them. It happened to them.
They're calling it Whistlegate.
During Monday's game between the Patriots and the Buffalo Bills, a referee blew a whistle that ended a play that looked like it might have resulted in a Patriots touchdown. After a huddle of about 15 minutes (okay, that's an exaggeration), the refs announced that the whistle had been "inadvertent."
And the football world goes mad! At least this will give folks something to chew on for the rest of the season, right?

So well, it's leap-frogging over anything Taylor Swift did in 2015 as the most-parodied video of the year.
Look who's taking a swipe at it now.

This may be the most awkward exchange ever between two people who make their living with comedy.
Stephen Colbert had Bill Maher on his show the other night, and the discussion turned to religion.
Stephen's a practicing Catholic - "doesn't mean I'm good at it," says Stephen.
Bill was raised Catholic, but is now non-religious.
Somehow, Stephen tried to convince Bill to return to the Church.
I'm pretty sure he was kidding, but Bill didn't seem to get that.
And that's when it all turned awkward.
Check it out. Maybe it's just me?
There's been a lot of buzz surrounding Creed, aka Rocky VII.
In this one, the son of Apollo Creed turns to Rocky Balboa to manage him as a boxer.
Sort of putting Rocky in the Mickey spot.
And putting Sylvester Stallone back in the spotlight after a pretty good stretch out of it.
They're marketing this as your Thanksgiving movie.
Might not be a bad idea to plan to see it. Sure beats Black Friday shopping...

has a long-standing running gag suggesting that Harrison Ford is feuding with Chewbacca from the Jimmy Kimmel Live Star Wars franchise.
Something to do with a woman - "a long time ago... in a galaxy far, far away," says Jimmy.
Last night, it looks like a near tragedy managed to bring the two old friends together.
Thank you, Jimmy Kimmel!
Johnny Manziel - the NFL quarterback who'd prefer to be known as Johnny Football - was named the starting QB for the Cleveland Browns for the remainder of the season.
That was last week.
Yesterday, he lost the starting position.
He also lost the back-up position.
He's now the Number 3 QB, and all because of video that surfaced showing him partying Manziel-style after being named the starting QB.
When his coach handed the spot to him, he did tell him to be on his best behavior.
Looks like maybe that didn't sink in...
Wyatt is a 12-year-old autistic boy who loves the Blue Man Group.
His right arm was amputated shortly after he was born.
His wish was to have a robotic Blue Man Group arm.
The folks at Limbitless Solutions made that happen with a low-cost arm produced on a 3D printer, and had the folks at Blue Man Group present the arm to Wyatt.
Watch this amazing video from a couple of weeks ago, and tell me you don't tear up...
When you take Blue Man Group, Limbitless Solutions and an amazing boy named Wyatt - magic happens. How do you Dare to Live in Full Color?

You can bet that when it was announced that JJ Abrams would be directing the upcoming Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens, he was buried in audition requests and tapes.
On this weekend, he shared some of those tapes with the world. Saturday Night Live
You never know who's going to show up when a part in a potential blockbuster is on the line, right?
Very funny clips - with some very interesting cameos too.
An interesting moment at the American Music Awards on Sunday night.
Harrison Ford - you might remember him as Han Solo from Star Wars? - introduced a musical segment paying homage to the music of Star Wars.
Pentatonix, the truly amazing a capella group, backed by a symphony orchestra.
An a capella group, with an orchestra...
Am I the only one who finds that contradictory?
Rather than compliment each other, it seems they worked against each other...
What do you think?
Here's a viral Vine for you.
Will Parks is a safety for the University of Arizona Wildcats.
When his team faced the Utes from the University of Utah a week ago, the game ended in a tie at the end of four quarters, going into overtime.
The four captains from each team met at mid-field for a coin toss.
As the referee stepped forward to announce who'd won, Will started to walk away.
The referee tapped Will on the shoulder pad, probably to keep him there until the announcement was made.
So Will turned around and gently tagged the ref on the shoulder.
And viral. At this writing, close to a quarter-million hits, with close to 13 million loops.
