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....

Gabby picks Super Bowl winner

Monday, Jan, 30 2012

Super Bowl week has arrived, and try as I might I just am not as into it this year as I usually am. I guess the giant (pardon the pun) letdown of the Packers not being there just hurts too much yet. 


So in an effort to make things a little more interesting I did my own little 'pick the winner' contest today using my dog Gabby.


As you'll see from the video, this was all very high-tech and scientific. 


Who would the Gabster say wins this Sunday? Will it be Eli and the Giants or Brady and the Pats?


I'll be talking about this and other Super Bowl stories on the PhilCast today, but since you are loyal enough to be reading this, YOU get the scoop first. Just CLICK HERE to watch the video for yourself right now and see which team Gabby says will win the Super Bowl on Sunday!
