"All season long, Bud Light has celebrated the most passionate and dedicated fans that the NFL has to offer, and as the playoffs approach, we want to see fandom turned up another notch," Anna Rogers, director of NFL partnerships and strategy at Anheuser-Busch, said in a statement. "Most NFL fans likely won't see one Super Bowl in their lifetime, so we figured what better way to reward one of the NFL's biggest fans than by giving him or her tickets to the big game for the rest of their life?"

Bud Light will place 37,000 gold cans in select 18-, 24- and 30-packs of 12-ounce Bud Light through Jan. 13. The packages will be sold across the country in all states except California.

Those who find a gold can can enter the contest by uploading a photo of it and using the hashtags #SBTix4Life and #Sweeps.

Six weekly winners will be selected to win a pair of season tickets to their favorite NFL team.

One grand prize winner will receive a pair of Super Bowl tickets for life, up to 51 years.

The grand prize winner will be selected the week of Jan. 16.

Bacon wrapped stuffing bites

Ingredients

1 (6.5 ounce) packet cornbread stuffing mix

1 large egg

1/3 cup milk

1/2 cup chopped white onion

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup chopped parsley

1/2 apple chopped

1 cup chopped pecans

2 Italian sausage links, casings removed and torn into chunks

1 teaspoon curry powder

1 teaspoon lemon zest

15 slices bacon, cut in half

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the stuffing mix, egg and milk. Mix with a wooden spoon.

Add the onion, garlic, parsley, apple and pecans. Mix to combine.

Cheesy leftover mashed potato pancakes

Ingredients

3 cups chilled leftover mashed potatoes

2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese

2 Tablespoons chopped scallions, green and white parts

1 egg, lightly beaten

3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Vegetable oil, for pan-frying

Sour cream, for serving

Directions

In a large bowl, stir together the mashed potatoes, cheese, scallions, egg and 3 tablespoons flour until combined. (See Kelly's Notes.) Using your hands, divide the mixture into 12 portions. Roll each portion into a compact ball then flatten it into a pancake about a 1/2-inch-thick.

Place the remaining 1/2 cup of flour in a shallow dish and carefully dredge each pancake in the flour.

Heat 3 to 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. (Add enough oil to thoroughly coat the bottom of the pan.)

Fry the pancakes, in batches, until they're golden brown and crispy on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes. Add more oil to the pan as needed between batches. (Do not overcrowd the pan and do not flip the pancakes too soon or they won't develop a crisp crust.) Transfer the pancakes to a paper towel-lined plate and immediately sprinkle them with salt.

Serve the potato pancakes topped with sour cream and garnished with additional chopped scallions.

Supermoon yields spectacular views

The skies early Monday were dominated by a spectacular supermoon, the closest the satellite has been to Earth since January 1948 and a sight that won’t occur again until 2034.

The moon appears to be 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than the average full moon.

The distance between Earth and its moon changes because the moon’s orbit is elliptical. While the average full moon is about 236,790 miles from Earth, Monday’s moon will be 221,525 miles away – a difference of 15,265 miles. 

In South Florida the skies were clear for the view, while other parts of the state were cloudy and obstructed the view somewhat. Around the world, photographers captured the unique event and posted their work on social media sites.

Drizly, a Boston-based company, is partnering with a packaging stores to expand the delivery service. 

Kerin Horgan, who handles public relations for Drizly, said the company decided to expand to Jacksonville because of the young demographic. 

"People are looking for, you know, the next service that can make their life that much more easier and convenient," Horgan said. 

The service allows customers to order alcohol from nearby liquor stores using either the app or desktop site.

Once the order is placed, the delivery comes from an employee of the store or someone contracted by the store. The delivery cost is a flat $5 fee. 

Parents needn't worry about their children or teenagers abusing the service. Upon delivery, the drivers will scan the customers' ID to verify they are 21.

Drizly is available in 28 cities, including Seattle, Tampa Bay, Orlando and Austin, Texas.

Daily events beg for instant, accurate emotions, and Apple is providing new emojis that cover a wide range of them — a shrug, crossed fingers, and the facepalm. 

On Tuesday, Apple released its first beta version of its iOS 10.2 software update for its iPhone, iPad and iPod touch products. The developer preview will include 72 new emojis. Other additions include job descriptions like teacher, astronaut, scientist, firefighter and pilot. 

Apple has not announced an official release date for the iOS 10.2 software, but the new symbols, approved as part of Unicode 9.0 in June, are expected to be available later this month. 

So when you hear something ridiculous that makes you want to roll on the floor laughing, well, Apple will have the emoji available for you to express your feelings.

Buzzfeed compiled a complete list of the new emoji, covering the bases from clown faces to avocados.
