Men constantly drink beer--and constantly struggle with the 'beer gut' that seems to increase with size by the can... And what I have been told for years is being proven right in a new study that says men can blame their stomachs on estrogen .. and why the high amount of estrogen? blame the food.. and the drink.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square.
