“It's kinda cool actually to be in an environment where people want to go off and serve their country and come back,” said “A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas” star Kal Penn. To clarify: In this case “come back” means “reprise his role as a big-screen pothead,” since Penn (Kumar) temporarily left his post in the White House Office of Public Engagement to film the third “Harold and Kumar” movie, opening Nov. 4. (Penn has since completed his two-year stint on the job in D.C.)

Get ready for unwatchable. Bears backup quarterback Jason Campbell (sit this one out, Jay) runs the offense, against a wobbly Alex Smith, also recovering from a concussion. It's on a Monday night, in San Francisco. You know how well the Bears play in San Francisco. Oh, you don't? Here are some scores for you (all losses): 49-7 (2003), 44-15 (playoffs, 1994), 52-14 (1991), 41-0 (1987). This is a loss, and it's going to be so unbearable that I am formally requesting of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell that this game not be televised.
