"Santa Claus Conquers the Martians"

Let the PhilCast Countdown to Christmas begin!

From now until my final show before the big day all bump music will be Christmas songs.

The plug bell is replaced by the plug SLEIGH bells....IF I can find them today!

And "Angry Elf" will be at the ready to irritate Reggie the Executive Producer as well.

Christmas movies kick into full swing too, and today I'll go in-depth on this one, which has the rep of being one of the worst Christmas movies of all time.


What's not to like?

Happy Thanksgiving

Wednesday, Nov, 25 2015

Wishing you and yours as happy a Thanksgiving as that turkey is having in the picture.

Associate producer "Z-Bart" will be running some PhilCast Classic Clips on Wed. and Fri.

We're back at it as of Monday with a shortened Pack Yak to open the show.

Also, a couple of annual changes kick in per the PhilCast calendar as of Monday.

Since it is the first show following Thanksgiving, I now will switch to the countdown to Christmas.

That means all Christmas music bump songs and the switch from my plug bell to the plug sleigh bells until our Christmas break.

Oh, there just may be a visit or two from the old 'Angry Elf' as we get closer to Christmas as well.

All coming up Tuesday.

I can almost smell the bird roasting.

Holy Hoodie Batman!

Monday, Nov, 23 2015

Yes, I own one.
Yes, I'll be wearing it while broadcasting the Monday PhilCast.

There it is, the magical hoodie.

If you listen to me on a regular basis, you know I pick up on quirky little things rather quickly.

This green hoodie sticking out of James Jones' jersey was the first thing I noted on my yellow pad of paper while taking notes for "Pack Yak" on Monday.

Little did I know the hoodie would explode on social media, even picking up its own Twitter account.

I noted during the game that I was informed by Twitter that James Jones' Hoodie is now following me.
Such an honor.

...easy to have fun when the Packers win, right?
I'm just glad the runaway squirrel on the field wasn't the highlight of the game this week.
Rich Ratay and I will have plenty to cover in today's Yak.

Kimberly Papermakers (3)

Saturday, Nov, 21 2015

Snow and all, this is a great picture that I had to lift from Twitter and post here.

That was one hell of a game Friday night.

I don't think I could have had a more Fox Valley experience than my Friday night watching the Papermakers making it three titles in a row.

There I was with the rest of the crowd at a local institution, Van Able's (my first time there) enjoying a traditional Friday night fish fry with a little Friday Night Lights on one of the several big-screens in the restaurant.

As we talked at our table with a couple of friends we were dining with I kept glancing up at a screen projecting the game in the dining room.

I could hardly believe the comeback I was watching while downing delicious fish and a Bloody Mary with string cheese crawling out of the top of the tall glass.

Now THAT's Wisconsin.

Arrowhead must have thought they had done enough. Tough loss for them. All players involved should be proud of a great season.
