Still after Lance

Tuesday, Feb, 7 2012

On the Tuesday PhilCast...
They're still after Lance, and it makes no sense.

The World Anti-Doping Assoc. now wants all the info gathered here in the U.S. by the feds regarding possible charges of fraud against the greatest cyclist of our generation Lance Armstrong.

On Friday it was reported that there would be no charges. The idea here was that if Armstrong had indeed lied about taking illegal drugs while he rode on a team basically sponsored by the government (U.S. Postal Service) then he and the team took money under false pretenses and could be charged.

No doping. No charges.

But now WADA wants all that info from the investigation to go to them for possible charges. What makes this ridiculous is the fact that this all dates back to the early 90's when, because of a statue of limitations, there could be no charges brought against Lance even if they wanted to do that.

It just goes to show what I said in the headline to this post--they're still after Lance.

Also on the Tuesday show...
My take on the TV show that's getting a lot of buzz today. Will "Smash" be a smash for NBC? Before you laugh it off guys, let me inform you that she's one of the stars of the show...





We'll discuss the show on the PhilCast today.

Check out the show live over the air, live on-line or later on your own time in podcast version. And as always, thanks for listening.

Later.

Super Review

Monday, Feb, 6 2012

On the Monday PhilCast I pull Pack Yak star Rich Ratay out of moth balls to join me in the studio to talk all things Super Bowl in the first hour of the show.



The game.
The halftime.
The ads.

I've got one word that I think best describes my Super Sunday. Plus I'll have my personal favorite top three ads.

Madonna's halftime...am I the only one? I swear had no one told me about the 'finger' incident I would have never known it happened.

Talk to you at 3:00.

Run Rabbit Run!

Friday, Feb, 3 2012

They had me at the awesome song!

Okay, I admit I'm obsessed with one of the latest viral videos on the internet. But hey, what's not to love about a Swedish sheep-herding bunny rabbit!

No, really.

I love the internet.

And there he is, Champis the sheep-herding bunny rabbit.


Put to an old "Run Rabbit Run" song to die for, this little guy actually herds the Swedish sheep.


I can't stop singing the song or watching the video.


I'll have the entire story on the Friday PhilCast show today. Meantime, since you're here and reading my blog I'll go ahead and link you up.


Enjoy...and Run Rabbit Run!


Have a great Super Bowl Weekend. We'll talk game ads on the Monday PhilCast.

Pathetic really...

Thursday, Feb, 2 2012

So basically February has three things to hang its hat on; President's Day, Valentine's Day and of course today, Ground Hog Day. Pretty pathetic when you have to celebrate getting up at the crack of dawn in PA to pull a big rodent out of a cage and make up some folklore about how long winter is going to last. At least he has a cool name!



Still, it's all Feb. has so why not embrace it?

Yet near as I can tell there is no 'official' Phil the groundhog in Appleton. Therefore we at the PhilCast have decided to start up our own new tradition.

You'll be able to hear a little something called Ground Dog Day today on the show. Should be fun. And as per usual on this day I will play back for you the 1990 classic bit I did with the late/great Don Vogel while doing mornings at WISN together...the two news geeks covering the assassination of the ground hog.

Also today...towel use. Is it necessary to use a fresh towel after EVERY shower or bath? We had an interesting discovery and discussion about this off the air on Wednesday in the studio so I have decided to bring it ONTO the air this afternoon.

Join us at 3:00 live on-line, over the air, or catch the podcast on your own time.

Later....
