KRISTEN'S PICK - WINNER

DRIVING LIKE A JERK IS EXPENSIVE

According to a new study, driving erratically impacts your fuel economy in a big way and costs you money.

Researchers found that speeding into and out of different lanes and slamming on the brakes ends up using so much gas that it's like paying an extra dollar for every gallon of gas you put in the tank – which adds up to nearly $700 more in fuel costs each year. (Knoxville News Sentinel)

FRECKLES' PICK 

THE SPORTS ILLUSTRATED JINX IS FOR REAL

As you probably know, over the weekend, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgersbroke his collarbone and is done for the season. What you may not know is that Rodgers’ injury ends up being more proof that the Sports Illustrated jinx is for real.

Nothing good happens to athletes who get on the cover of that magazine.

Before the season started, Sports Illustrated put four players on their 2017 NFL Preview issue: David Johnson, J.J. Watt, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady.

So far this season, David Johnson broke his wrist. J.J. Watt broke his leg. Rodgers broke his collarbone. Only Tom Brady is still standing.

So, clearly, the SI jinx is real – and Tom Brady needs to be extra careful out there. (Yahoo Sports)
