Was Yuna Kim robbed?

Friday, Feb, 21 2014

Turns out there is an uproar over the results of the women's figure skating finals, won by a Russian named Adelina Sotnikova....with perhaps the help of a Russian judge with connections?

An on-line petition is gaining steam to have the entire process reviewed. Now of course, nothing will come of this, but it does make you wonder.

I personally thought that Yuna Kim, seen at the right here, should have defended her last gold and won the thing. The judges didn't see it that way.

This is nothing new. It has happened in this sport before. An athletic skater who nailed more jumps and received more technical points takes home the gold rather than the more-artistic skater who did almost as many jumps.

It's just the nature of how the sport works.

Maybe someday they can come up with some sort of robotic eye that watches and then scores the skater based on the data that was entered on the program ahead of time. Who knows?

But until then, this stuff is subjective and subject to controversy.

Welcome Tiffany

Tuesday, Feb, 18 2014

Tuesday on the PhilCast I welcome Tiffany Holtz of the Focus Team
at Coldwell Banker Real Estate Group to the show.

You'll be hearing me talk about her guarantee to sell your house.

Once you hear about how it works I'm pretty sure you'll agree with me that this is the way to go when it comes to selling your home, not just listing it.

Like I always say, support those who support the show when you can. That's how all this works.

"FUN" in funeral?

Tuesday, Feb, 18 2014

Well here it is.
The photo that has caused an uproar Tuesday.

Wisconsin National Guard members claiming they put the fun in funerals.

I don't get it.
How is this funny?

What was someone thinking when they not only took this photo in front of an empty casket, but then posted it on social media?

We'll discuss on the Tuesday PhilCast.
