Go Pack Go

Thursday, Aug, 23 2012

The PhilCast will run from 3-4 today, then it's Packers' pre-game on WHBY. It should be an interesting game as Cedric Benson gives it his first go on green and gold against his old team. I'm really hoping he will provide some of the much-needed running game that will make A-Rod's life just that much easier back there at QB.

Thanks to Jackie Boyd of Jackie Boyd Photography for her work last night while we were shooting the cover art for the upcoming PhilCast CD release for charity. We had a lot of fun and I wish I could tell you more and post some photos, but it's all supposed to be top secret for a few more weeks.

Go PACK!

Honor system

Wednesday, Aug, 22 2012

They call it the honor system....you know....like those roadside stands that sell sweet corn with a box there for the money. Most people are honest and pay for what they take, right?

Well, they did a little test like that to find out, only in this case it was bottles of tea.

Who paid the most?
Who paid the least?

Did men with beards pay more often then red-headed women?

I know it's all very unscientific and a gimmick put on by the company that makes the tea, but still, I find these things fascinating. It's one of the stories I'll talk about after the Brewers' game on the Wednesday showgrum.

Oh, there's also the matter of the naked Prince Harry and his game of strip billiards to cover.

The 'new' Kimberly

Tuesday, Aug, 21 2012


Well thank goodness we now know that our friends in Kimberly live in a progressive community!
Or would that be a progressive village? It takes a village I've heard.
This is like one of those puzzles where you try to find what's different in the renditions.

So Kimberly has a new logo. What was so important that they had to make a change?

A) Kimberly now has more trees it appears
B) We now know that Kimberly is a village because it says so
C) (as covered above) it's a progressive place
D) The stacks that are no more are now a lighter shade of gray (wasn't that a song in the 60's?)
E) Apparently the sun either rises or sets on Kimberly as well now.

So there.
New font and all, celebrate well Kimberly.

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.
