Make the ad madness stop

Monday, Aug, 20 2012

Is nothing sacred?

Can't a man go about his business in peace and without the plague of advertising invading his space on the throne?

One of the stories I'll discuss on the Monday show is about brothers who have come up with the idea of putting ads and QR codes onto toilet paper.

Enough already.

Let a man go in peace I say.

Also Monday, "Howz Yer Weekend?" in the first hour of the show, when we chat up what we did over the weekend and give it a 1-10 score.

In addition I have to say my week did not start well.
I'll have the story of the mouse, the dog and the cold morning this morning that started my Monday WAY earlier than I wanted!

Packer Panic?

Friday, Aug, 17 2012

0-2

Oh-no?

Na.

I've been getting people asking me about what I think about the Packers in pre-season thus far, so I thought I'd put a few notes up here at my blog.

I could not care less about win-loss records in the pre-season. This is a time for evaluating new talent more than anything.

But there are glimpses of things to come in the regular season during the first quarters of these games at least, when the starters are in there.

I'll just say this much...I think there are two areas of this team that will have me yelling from my chair in my living room this season; lack of pass rush and the secondary. That's a bad combo to be weak at because the lack of pass rush gives even average quarterbacks time to look better than they are. And when he has time to pass and the secondary is getting burned....well....that just means the Packers' offense better keep putting lots of points on the board.

How'd you like to live here?

Thursday, Aug, 16 2012

Remember recently I did a story on the PhilCast about what was called the most 'unfortunate names' of cities in this country?

Well on the Thursday show I have the British version of that list, also just out.

Man, they've got us beat over there when it comes to goofy names for their towns. Spoiler alert....here's the winner:



You can't make this stuff up.

Nor could I make up the name of the valley that this town is in. Thank goodness we're just the plain old Fox Valley!

I'll expand on that and have more from the list on the show today.

Also Lips LaBelle drops by the studio to chat up Hollywood news and gossip of the week.

Then at 5:00 we go to Packers' pre-game coverage today.

"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.
