-- David Ortiz is having an estate sale for his Weston, Mass. home and there are some bizarre finds. 

You can purchase some of the more than 350 items that will go up for sale Saturday morning through Exceptional Estate Sales, which posted photos of the merchandise online.

Items include clothes, all types of furniture, a statue of a frog playing a ukulele, a Louis Vuitton snow globe, a Dyson fan, a Weber grill, a Rolls Royce neon sign, a printer, and Red Sox memorabilia. 

The sale begins at 8 a.m. on Saturday. 

-- The FCC released some of the complaints Super Bowl halftime show viewers sent after this year’s Shakira/J.Lo performance and it seems some people were very offended.

Here are some of the 1,300 comments viewers submitted: 

“Jennifer Lopez’s performance at the Super Bowl halftime show was extremely explicit and completely unacceptable for a event where families including children are watching,” a viewer in Utah wrote. “I had to send my children out of the room so that they weren’t exposed to something they should not have seen.” 

“My family was very excited to watch the Super Bowl tonight,” a Washington viewer wrote. “However, I was not prepared to explain to my 11 yo daughter why Jennifer Lopez was dressed so scantily or why she kept grabbing her crotch. My daughter was asking if she was feeling sick from having so much skin showing.” 

“The half time show was very sexual in nature. I have never seen so many sex poses outside porn magazines,” a viewer in New York wrote. 

"I do not subscribe to The Playboy Channel, we do not buy porn for $20 a flick, we simply wanted to sit down as a family and watch the Super Bowl," wrote a viewer Tennessee. "God forbid we expected to watch football and a quick concert but instead had our eyes molested."

“A disgusting spectacle was on display during the halftime show of the Super Bowl yesterday and I’m sickened by the idea that this was broadcast in to so many homes in America and possibly around the world,” a viewer in Oregon wrote. “Selling sex seems to be the job nowadays, despite human trafficking and the Me Too movement. Shame on (Super Bowl broadcaster) Fox.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "We’re in a good spot. Like I said, our staff has done a great job preparing everybody. For the time being we’re in a pretty good spot.” -- Nick Caserio, on the Patriots’ coaching staff in the pre-draft process
