The Omelette Weekly Roundup: Philadelphia Snow, SEPTA, Charlie Sheen Hospitalized, Jeff Fisher Done in Tennessee, and Will Ferrell To Join The Office

The Philadelphia region was rocked by a two-punch snowstorm on Wednesday, starting at 5:00 in the morning. After the storm cleared out later in the morning, round two c started around 6:00 PM and delivered nearly a foot of snow in a 6-hour span to many areas across the Delaware Valley.

If you weren't stranded in traffic Wednesday morning then you may have been one of the unlucky SEPTA riders who were stranded on one of their buses. Dozens of SEPTA buses were stuck in the snow Wednesday night and many people stayed on the buses for hours during the blizzard.

Charlie Sheen's antics continue. He went on a reported 36-hour bender during the cast's hiatus from Two and a Half Men this week. Sheen allegedly had a briefcase full of cocaine delivered to his house and partied with several women until the wee hours of Thursday morning. Following this epic bender, he got sick and 911 was called.  Reports are he was  hospitalized due to abdominal pains. Some allege it's due to a hiatal hernia condition. Can we finally admit that Charlie Sheen has no business being the star of a sitcom? If Lindsay Lohan continues to take criticism and be forced to go to rehab, then authorities should start to throw the book at Charlie Sheen.

Jeff Fisher and the Titans agreed to part ways on Wednesday. Fisher was basically fired by owner Bud Adams. Fisher was the longest tenured coach in the NFL having coached 17 seasons in Tennessee. He will be one of the most highly sought head coaches for sure. He along with Bill Cowher and Jon Gruden are available for "the right job." This makes Andy Reid the longest-tenured coach in the NFL at 12 seasons.

Will Ferrell is set to join The Office for four episodes next season. I'm among those who would hate to see The Office bring in another big name just to replace Steve Carrell. They have enough personalities on that show where they can pull from. I'm on Team Darryl myself as he would be the perfect replacement for the bumbling Michael Scott. Darryl, who is the opposite of the incompetent Michael would bring a new energy to the show and "The Office" wouldn't miss a beat.  I would also love to see them bring back David Wallace for a full-time role. Turns out Ferrell will be on for four episodes during the "transition period" after Michael leaves Scranton.
