Classic Uecker on Tuesday's PhilCast

Tuesday, Aug, 25 2015

In the 4:40-ish segment of the PhilCast on Tuesday you'll hear some classic Bob Uecker going one-on-one with me about, of all things, stirrups and baseball players.

Why stirrups?
Turns out there is an entire movement out there that, like me, misses the old-school look of baseball uniforms with stirrups.

Leave it to Bob to be able to tell me all about baseball socks.

He did....and it's funny.

Of course.

Speaking of stirrups, THIS is how a baseball player should look!

Happy birthday today to former Brewer Rollie Fingers who turns 69 today.

I don't know what looks more magnificent, his stirrups or his stash?

Oh crap Jordy...

Monday, Aug, 24 2015

Oh boy....

My take on a couple of things regarding the Jordy Nelson injury on Sunday.

Full Disclosure: As you know, I have had a major Man-Crush on good 'ole #87 for some time now, by far my favorite Green Bay Packer.

1) In know, I know, one player doesn't make a team. The Packers are more than Jordy Nelson. Yes, they'll still be a good team without his services this season. But to that I say boo-hoo. The fact is that any team that wants to make it to the Super Bowl needs every weapon it can get on deck and fighting. This is a major piece of the puzzle taken away. So I don't think the Packers come anywhere near the force they were going to be with him playing.

2) I hate pre-season football. I also fail to see the need for four games. It's too much. I do think there is a place for these games, but I have an idea to revamp the system. I'll go over the details of my plan on the PhilCast....first thing Monday.

Heal fast Jordy.
This ain't the same team without you.

Murse gets man tased on a plane

Thursday, Aug, 20 2015

Ahhhh, the "Murse", a made-up word from the combination of man and purse...
The man purse.

On the Thursday PhilCast I'll have the story of the murse that got a guy tased on a plane.

Is it a carry-on?
Should it have been allowed like any other woman's purse?

Doesn't it seem rather extreme that a passenger had to be tased over this?

We'll discuss.

Brewers & Bears

Wednesday, Aug, 19 2015

Brewers & Bears....
I know, one is a baseball team and one is a football team (sort of...BAM), but that's the plan for Wednesday afternoon.

Brewers' baseball first, then a delayed and shortened PhilCast that includes another Bear Alert.

This time, this small dog might have saved his owner from a vicious attack.
