Monday News Update: Congratulations, Nominations and Ruminations
Today in Memphis, we wake from our turkey hangovers for Tiger football wins, free car repairs for the needy and deserving, local cyber Monday sales and more.

– Congratulations to the Tiger football team. They finished this season with a 4-4 C-USA record, which is the best they've had in years. Also, their last two wins were straight up butt-whippins. All hail the Fuente! era.
– If you know someone who's strapped for cash but deserves to have his or her car fixed, Madison Automotive is taking nominations until Dec. 14 for their annual donation of free car repairs to select Memphians who really need them.
– I'm not crying; it's just raining in my eyes. Here's the uplifting story of a neglected pony who found a new home in the Mid-South.
– Add a little extra time if you're heading to the Forum for Grizzlies games. The FedExForum is starting hand-wand security searches at home games starting tonight.
– Think the Madison Ave. bike lanes aren't doing anything for business? Think again.
