Put a roof on it!

Monday, Apr, 13 2015

So there may or may NOT be a PhilCast show on Monday afternoon.

That's because there's no roof on this place, Busch Stadium in St. Louis, where the Brewers and Cardinals are supposed to play a game this afternoon.

But there's rain in the forecast down there, so if it rains and there's no game or a rain-delayed game, we're on with the PhilCast.

Put a roof on that thing!

I'm so glad Miller Park was built the way it was--with a roof. If a game is scheduled a game is played, end of story.

I get it.

That's a very nice looking skyline of the home of Archway Cookies (That's why that thing is there, right?)
But with a retractable roof you could still see all that during dry days, and you could still play on wet ones like today.

Why do I even bother with all this?

Selfish reasons of course. Because not knowing about the rain means I have to prepare an entire PhilCast show just as if it is a normal broadcast day. But if there is a game, all my work is for nothing because we'll never get on the air with any of it. The Brewers will be too busy losing to the Cards.
(We're starting the "There's always next year" a little early this season)

Stay tuned this afternoon and we'll see what happens.

Terrible Tracks

Thursday, Apr, 9 2015

Time to blow the whistle on those terrible tracks, railroad crossings so rough that they jar your fillings loose when you drive across them.

This can't be good for our vehicles.

I suppose most of us have one or two crossings that we dread having to bounce over in our daily routines.

I know I have one that someone should be arrested for it's so bad.

Who's responsible and how do they get away with letting these things get so out of hand?

What can we do?
Who do we complain to about this?

I'll open the PhilCast on Thursday revealing my most horrible railroad crossing in the area and I'll be talking to someone from that city to give us all the scoop on how we get these kidney-busters fixed.

PhilCast Fail of the Day-or is it?

Tuesday, Apr, 7 2015

For Opening Day in Major League baseball Monday, Hostess tweeted this photo.

Cute, right?
A cupcake that looks like a baseball.
Perfect for Opening Day.

Until you get to the caption.
Touchdown?

Um, wrong sport, sport.

People rampaged on Hostess for the goof on Twitter.

Hostess answered by saying they did it on purpose to generate interest.

Hmmm....you know, maybe they did because it works for them either way.

I want a baseball cupcake now.
