SATURDAY, 8 a.m. My head throbbed. "What did you do last night? What did you do last night? What did you do last night?," chanted the hamsters running on the wheel in my brain. You guessed it. A hangover. But this wasn't your average too-many-Chardonnays-at-the-Joneses hangover. This was an ego hangover. Ego hangover? You know, that yucky feeling that comes after you get blind drunk on the sound of your own voice. Well, maybe you don't know. So let me tell you how I came to be in this pickle.

It's a custom among some Philadelphians to spend New Year's Day covered in sequins, walking along Broad Street, drinking beer and dancing. Others adhere to an alternative tradition, best practiced in private, involving abundant groaning and clutching of the head and the toilet tank. That is, of course, the New Year's hangover. How best to treat this annual affliction is a matter of some debate. So we turned to the pros - local chefs, who tend to put in late hours and, perhaps, partake in the occasional, end-of-the-night-shift drink.

Sometimes the old methods may work best. Researchers at Thomas Jefferson University say that they've identified a key agent in the brain chemistry responsible for hangover headaches and that a good remedy is one tried by every tormented soul who's ever groped for a morning-after cup of coffee: Caffeine. The stimulant has long been an ingredient in over-the-counter headache medications. But the Jefferson study is the first to link caffeine's effectiveness to its ability to block the activity of a chemical called adenosine.

HONG KONG - Oscar-winning director Ang Lee played an important role in "The Hangover Part II" - at least offscreen. He is the father of one of the actors. The filmmaker's younger son, Mason Lee, plays Teddy, the teenager the lead characters try to rescue as they struggle to piece together what happened during a crazy night in Bangkok. Ang Lee was clearly a proud dad speaking to reporters after catching a showing with his younger brother and mother earlier this week in Taiwan, his home country.

YOU CAN look at "Due Date" as a foulmouthed "Planes, Trains and Automobiles," or as "The Hangover 1.5," something to tide you over until 2.0 arrives. "Due Date" offers the director (Todd Phillips), a slew of bit players from "The Hangover" and a healthier (if that's the right word) dose of Zach Galifianakis, the breakout star of "The Hangover," who is effecting a swift and somewhat hostile takeover of movie comedy. In a pop-culture instant, the hairy, stammering misfit has gone from obscure stand-up to box-office dynamite.

Barring the end of the world (it didn't happen yesterday, did it?), or the even less likely scenario in which no one bothers to go out next weekend to see three guys wake up completely blotto, there will be a Hangover: Part III . "Obviously, it will depend on the success of the second one," says Bradley Cooper , whose participation in the inaugural Hangover had more than a little to do with his rocket launch to stardom. "You never know," Cooper adds, trying to sound cautious about the box-office prospects of the much-anticipated follow-up.

It's like that asteroid hurtling right at us. Can't get out of the way. Of Hangover 2 , we mean. The film touched down Thursday and blew the roof off the world, according to distributor estimates. Opening night, it made $31.6 million (a record for a comedy), $30 mil on Friday and $29.7 mil on Saturday, beating the three-day comedy record of Bruce Almighty on Memorial Day weekend in 2003. At $118 mil as of Sunday, it could top $140 mil by Monday COB. The R-rater record is Matrix: Reloaded , which in 2003 made $144 mil its first five days.

Delaware County girls' basketball is suffering from a hangover of sorts - a 1987 playoff hangover, to be precise. Despite a robust campaign last year that featured several of the region's top players, Delaware County teams fell hard in the postseason scrap. Eight teams from the Central and Del-Val Leagues went to the District 1 playoffs, but none survived to represent the county even in the quarterfinal round of the regional tournament. The only three teams to win first-round games - Ridley, Sun Valley and Chester - were dispatched in the second round.

Your mouth is dry. Your head pounds. Your stomach aches. You feel shaky, fatigued and queasy; every little sound makes you jump, and the dimmest light is way too bright. Concentrate? Forget it. It's the morning after the night before - and you, despite your best intentions, have a hangover. Yes, despite the fact that drinking levels in America have been declining for at least a decade, the hangover is with us still - especially this time of year. Most hangover-sufferers would hardly be surprised to hear that their misery is the result of drinking too much - "acute alcohol withdrawal," in medical terms.

HOW'S THIS for a head-scratcher: Apparently, out-of-state politicians and activists can be trusted to drink responsibly, but your average Philadelphian can't. For years, our state has endured some of the nation's most needlessly restrictive alcohol regulations, yet well-connected visitors to the Democratic National Convention next week will get special exceptions. State legislators in Harrisburg have implemented temporary "national event permits" for the duration of the convention, allowing select Philadelphia venues to sell alcohol later than 2 a.m., provide happy hour specials, and purchase their stock outside of state stores.

POPULAR WISDOM says Americans vote for presidential candidates whom they'd like to have a beer with. That explains how easygoing George W. Bush beat stiff John Kerry in 2004. Maybe there's some truth to the adage, but, then again, Bush was a teetotaler who invaded the wrong country, so: Bad way to choose a president. Which brings me to Donald Trump, also a teetotaler. Last fall, the current leader for the GOP nomination came in first in an NBC News poll that asked: Which Republican presidential candidate would you most want to have a drink with?

What happens if China wants to give you money for an American institution? You take it. Legendary Entertainment, the maker of films such as "Batman," has been sold to the Wanda Group of China for $3.5 billion. It is the first Chinese acquisition of a major U.S. film company. Wanda, whose chairman, Wang Jianlin , is very rich, has expanded rapidly into the film industry. It bought the U.S. cinema chain AMC in 2012 and is developing an $8 billion studio complex in eastern China.

DID SOMEBODY mention a possible hangover? Well, yes. Temple football coach Matt Rhule, as a matter of fact, three days after his 23rd-ranked Owls (7-1, 4-0 American) came within minutes of beating No. 8 Notre Dame (7-1) in what was only the biggest moment in program history. "I don't know that our team is over it yet, and that's a scary thought," said Rhule, whose team will play Friday night at Southern Methodist (1-7, 0-4) as a 12-point favorite. "Life moves on. Nobody cares what happened, or why. We'll find out a lot about our guys this week.

DESPITE LOSING at Richmond by a point, Villanova still is in position to make some serious postseason noise. If they can win their last three, starting tomorrow at home against Towson (4-5, 2-3), the seventh-ranked Wildcats (7-1, 4-1 CAA) likely will get an opening bye in the FCS tournament and at least one home game. Or maybe even two. Which should be more than enough incentive. "I like our chances," said coach Andy Talley, who might be unbeaten if his kickers had made a short field goal at the end of regulation in the opener at Syracuse and a PAT in the rain in Virginia.

Guys get blotto. . . . wake up and can't remember what happened the night before. . . . madness ensues. So goes the premise of 2009's The Hangover and its 2011 sequel, but the post-binge amnesia idea is jettisoned in The Hangover Part III . Make no mistake, there's still plenty of madness (whether it's funny or not is another question), but director Todd Phillips, back to hammer the nails in the coffin of his hit franchise, has opted to make a kind of gangland kidnapping action thriller instead.

THE SAFEST PLACE to be in "Hangover 3" is the spot usually reserved for Justin Bartha - off camera. Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms look like they're trying to sneak out a side door of this played-out franchise, happily ceding screen time to Zack Galifianakis and especially Ken Jeong. (Poor Helms doesn't quite make it - stay around for the end credits.) An apt subtitle for the trilogy's finale would be "Chow Time" - Jeong's flamboyant mystery man is the driver of a gold-heist plot that has the wolfpack in Mexico trying to find Chow, key to locating missing bullion that belongs to a vengeful crook (John Goodman)
