"Bambi's Bombers"

Wednesday, Aug, 15 2012

As you get older (I turn 54 later this month) your every day life from time to time brings you reminders that you're getting older. I mean, in my head, I'm not really getting much older. Heck I feel about 30-something. I can hop on a bike and ride 40 miles averaging 15 mph any time I want. That's not too old is it?


But then you get little reminders about the length of the time you've already been blessed with on this Earth...little reminders like yesterday on the PhilCast when out of the blue I started remembering my college days and how I covered "Bambi's Bombers"...the Milwaukee Brewers of the late 70's....even had my own baseball show on the radio.

As I rattled off the names of the guys on the team I spent so much time with I was reminded of my age when Justin Hull, PhilCast sports, talked about not even being around then. Yikes. I guess I AM getting old...er, ah, older at the very least.

I could remember almost all the names of the players from that era, and if you can not, CLICK HERE for the roster.

1978...93 wins and no playoffs. Ouch.

Cosby tickets for you

Tuesday, Aug, 14 2012

Hey we've got a pair of tickets to see Bill Cosby at the PAC in Appleton when his tour stops here in October.

Get your best impersonation ready because I'll give the tickets away to someone who does a good Cosby for me on the show today right after the 3:00 news.


Also today, I'll play the full audio clip of the goofy flight attendant who put on quite a show on the way to Madison from Chicago recently.

The fattest and slimmest cities in America and new words and phrases added to the dictionary...even Brett Favre is involved in this one.

Talk to you at three.

HowzYer?

Monday, Aug, 13 2012

1-10, "HowzYer Weekend?" Go to the PhilCast Facebook fan page to tell us about yours.
Then listen in the 3:00 hour today. Call live too if you like.

Me?

Lets see, my weekend included stories from not one but two parties and oh yeah...that little matter of being clipped by an SUV on my bike ride Saturday.



Oh, and here is the picture of the bird poop on a guy's windshield....he says that's Michael Jackson there. Do you see it?

Great picture

Friday, Aug, 10 2012

Favorite picture of the day today hands down.

Yeah, they painted the lines right over a raccoon.

Do I really need to say any more?

And so it begins...

Thursday, Aug, 9 2012

It's Packer time on the "Woobie" baby!

I don't get very excited about pre-season games, but I AM excited about the fact that this is a signal of better things to come...the NFL season will be upon us soon, with the opening game set for the weekend after Labor Day.

Packers' pre-game starts today at 5:00 so the PhilCast will be cut a bit short today.

While I am talking Packers here, I should tell you that the plan is to begin the third year of "Pak Yak" on Tuesday, Sept. 4th to preview the season and that opener on Sunday.

The Yak will once again be the featured segment on the PhilCast on Monday's in the 3:00 hour. I guess I better check to make sure co-host Rich Ratay isn't holding out this season. Matter of fact, he hasn't been in broadcast training camp yet. No wait. Never mind. We don't have that.

GO PACK!
