Bill Cosby on the PhilCast today

Thursday, Oct, 18 2012

What do you ask a living legend?

Actually, I've already got a list of things to ask Bill Cosby when he joins us on the PhilCast at the start of today's show at about 3:10-ish.

Cosby brings his tales of life and living to the PAC next weekend on the 27th, part of a tour of concerts he is currently on.

75 years old and touring. My guess is he wouldn't have it any other way. It's certainly not about the $$ in his case!

In some ways I grew up a lot by watching The Cosby Show on TV back in the day. And I'll explain that to him and get his thoughts about it on the show this afternoon.

And I can't wait to hear what he has to say about what's on TV these days too. I've gotta ask about Honey Boo Boo!

Oh, tickets to his show on the 27th are still available, just check with the PAC.

The debate was a 'tie'

Wednesday, Oct, 17 2012

For me the debate last night was a 'tie'.

No bold moves around either guy's neck. They came out in, you guessed it, red and blue ties. BORING. One last chance on Monday night in the final debate to see if either one of these guys steps out a little.

Like Mike Kemmeter here, a man known for his tie-wearing prowess.

Not THAT's a tie.

Although I must admit I had no idea that Mike moonlights as a construction worker on the side.

You see how he went with a neutral color so as not to conflict with the high-viz yellow of his vest? Brilliant choice.

And it's sort of a Regis thing going on too, with a like-color shirt and tie combo.

If only the candidates weren't so tie challenged maybe they too could pull off a look like this at the next debate for all the nation to see.

Yes, I've got yet another fashion-related question about last night's debate to go over on the PhilCast today.

And my comments on two big developments regarding Lance Armstrong in the news today as well.

Tie watch

Tuesday, Oct, 16 2012

The Rumble in the Jungle...

Ah, not so much, but presidential debate #2 is on tap tonight and I'll be on tie watch again.

In the wake of my tie story on the show Monday I would suggest one of them walk out in THIS bad boy tonight.

Will either one of them break the red/blue pattern tonight?

If you didn't catch the story yesterday you can certainly check it out via the PhilCast podcast page from the 4:00 hour Monday.

The story lays out the entire history of the ties worn at presidential debates, including the only man to have worn a brown tie during a debate.

Yup, it was Ronald Reagan, whom, if you remember, had a thing for brown in general, something I was going to ask him about when I was at the White House during his presidency but I chickened out at the last minute. It's all there on the podcast.

Holy Real Estate...No Really

Monday, Oct, 15 2012

Monday means Pack Yak on the PhilCast with Rich Ratay for the first hour. And there will be no shortage of Yak after that fantastic victory last night on national television.

Then in hour number two it's time to talk weekend with "Howz Yer Weekend?"

I've got a couple funny stories from my weekend for you, including the best one that happened at our first fish fry together in Appleton. Sandy and I had a great time at....(gotta listen)

And I learned about why St. Joseph is going to sell a house for us.

Up until Saturday I had never heard about this tradition. But I have now, and it if works for selling Sandy's late father's house in Adams-Friendship I am going to try it for our own house in Wauwatosa in a heartbeat!

LiveNotSoStrong?

Friday, Oct, 12 2012

Remember when these rubber bracelets were all the rage? 7-time Tour de France winner and cancer beater Lance Armstrong made them a rallying calling card in the fight against the ugly disease.

Now, take 'Tour de France' winner from Mr. Armstrong's title...stripped by officials who govern the sport and say he cheated. His own former teammates and friends testified against him it turns out, according to evidence released this week.

So where does that leave the future of his foundation?

Are people less-likely now to donate and take part because Livestrong was all based on a lie? I mean, he DID still beat cancer and all.

This is tough for me personally too because as a cyclist I for years followed Lance's career with an amazement at his accomplishments. And some of those former teammates (still friends I wonder?) are still racing and have been suspended now because of their involvement in all this.

We'll discuss on the Friday PhilCast.
