Calling all groundhogs!

Friday, Jan, 15 2016

It turns out that Sun Prairie is scrambling to find a new "Jimmy the Groundhog" in time for the city's annual Groundhog Day celebration.

After this little guy here bit the mayor in the ear, Jimmy was released into the wild.

But now they don't have a new one to use to check for shadows.

Oh the drama.

I'll call and get the latest at the start of the Friday PhilCast.

No winning ticket

Thursday, Jan, 14 2016

News flash--I didn't win the Powerball jackpot, and neither did PhilCast Family member Mike who won the extra ticket I bought by getting every answer wrong while playing "Yes or BS" on the show Wednesday.

But here's the good news.
I have a fool-proof way to cheer up, and I'll share it with you at the start of the Thursday show.

Also Thursday--
Nominations for the Oscars are out and I ask the question, why is a movie about a carpet leftover so popular....something called the Remnant?

And Lips LaBelle will have Hollywood news and gossip at 4:30-ish as well.

Leggo of that logo

Tuesday, Jan, 12 2016

First glance, what do you see here?

Right?

White settler trying to choke the life out of a Native American...not exactly the kind of thing a city in 2016 should be proud of using as its official logo.

But the people of Whitesboro (you can't make this stuff up) voted last night to keep their logo just as it is.

We'll discuss as part of the Tuesday show.

We'll also be going to the big Detroit Auto Show live at 4:30-ish with automotive reporter Jeff Gilbert on the phone from there.

As a car guy, I'm looking forward to it.

The light switch

Monday, Jan, 11 2016

They flipped the switch.

I kept talking about hoping that somehow the Green Bay Packers would be able to flip some sort of magical switch and bam, they'd be back to the Packers I watched earlier in the season, the winning ones.

Well, the switch was flipped yesterday in DC.

Pack Yak will live on for another week, as the Packers advance to the Divisional Round, playing the Cardinals in Arizona on Saturday night.

I know, I know....

The Packers were blown out in the desert a few weeks ago.
But the switch wasn't flipped then.
It is now.

Rich Ratay and I break it all down and have some fun with Pack Yak from 3-4 today on the PhilCast.
