Morning Brew for 12/3

I'm too cold to think of anything entertaining to start today's post, let's just get on with it.

-Media giant, Comcast, is set to purchase NBC Universal from General Electric for a whopping $37.25 billion. Some questions still need to be answered by an anti-trust regulators, and Congress still have some questions with the deal, but don't expect this one to get held up for long.

-The 2010 Grammy Nominations were announced last night during a live concert event. Beyonce and Taylor Swift led the way with 10, and 8 nominations respectively. Lady Gaga was given 5 nominations. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame snubs (thus far), Bon Jovi, were nominated for Pop Duo or Group With Vocals. Bank on it.

-The Tiger Woods story continues. According to this MSNBC report it seems Tiger and his wife Elin are receiving “intense marriage counseling”. While speculation continues to fly, there are still no solid reports saying whether or not the couple has a prenuptial agreement. Reportedly Mrs. Woods is being payed a 7-figure salary to remain as Mrs. Woods. Not a bad gig if you can get it.

-This is nice. A 72-year old Wal-Mart greeter just outside of Pittsburgh, was punched in the face by a 55-year old. According to the story the attack appeared to be unprovoked. You stay classy Pennslyvanaia.

-Big props to the New Jersey Nets as they set the record for the worst start in NBA history last night, losing to the Mavs 117-101. I'm sure the Russian Billionaire who is set to purchase the club is thrilled with his potential investment.

Pretty slow day for links today. As the day goes on I will try and get some good ones to post on the Twitter Account. As always you can follow us on Twitter, and also see what gets posted on the right side of this page.
