  • Is that a woman tied to a tree?

    the love tree


    I want you to imagine walking through a park with your kids (if you don't have kids, imagine that you do), it's a lovely day.  The kids are running and playing.  Then you notice something strange out of the corner of your eye.  You do a double take.  What you see can't be real, can it?  Oh, it's real!

    Here's the audio of the 911 call, click here.

    I love how the cops say it was a "consensual rendezvous."  I would have described it as a couple of freaks looking to get freaky! 

  • My Top 12

    We find out the top 12 contestants for this season of American Idol tonight at 7p.  Here is who I would like to see be in the group:


    Crystal Bowersox, Siobhan Magnus, Lacey Brown, Katelyn Epperly, Didi Benami and Lilly Scott.

    That means that Katie Stevens and Paige Miles are out for me.  I don't remember Katie having a good performance and Paige has a good voice but song choice and her inability to hit ANY NOTES during Tuesday's performance sealed the deal. 


    Big Mike, Casey James, Andrew Garcia, Alex Lambert, Lee Dewyze and Todrick Hall.

    That means that Aaron Kelly and Tim Urban are gone.  Aaron could be really good next season or in a couple of years but I don't think he gets what it takes each week.  I will say this, Kara's comment last night that he shouldn't sing a song he knows nothing about is dumb because most of the songs they are singing probably have nothing to do with the contestants.  She annoys me.  Tim was better last night but I think it was a fluke.  Ellen was right last week, he should be an actor who also sings.  It worked for Zach Efron.

  • Offensive Celebration?

    Posted by Matt Z

    The Canadian women's hockey team won their third straight gold medal yesterday but all the buzz is about how they celebrated.  Read the article and take a look at the photos and decide if you are offended by it or not.

    hockey celebration

    You can go ahead and aruge about the 18 year old (left in the photo) holding a can of beer but what we should really be focusing on is the blonde pictured above holding a can of COORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  How can you ever be forgiven for drinking a Coors on Canadian ice????  Where is your love of country????  Do you have no pride???? 

    And what's with the warped gold medals?  Did Willy Wonka get picked to manufacture them this year?  Hmmm. lets go with the gold covered chocolate medals this year!

  • There's No Crying In Curling

    danish crying curler

    Apparently when fans make noise, Danish curlers cry.  Well, at least one of them.  Her name is Madeleine Dupont and she broke down when Canadian fans piped up.

    We talked about this on the air, I actually took on the role of the wheeping curler, and afterwards a friend of mine shot me a text.  She follows curling more closely than I do and she plays.  She informed me that curling is a "gentlemans game" and loud cheering (and heaven forbid taunting) is not an acceptable practice.  Taking that into consideration, maybe the Canadian fans were in the wrong for making too much noise and maybe Dupont has a legit complaint.  But that's no reason to cry about it!!!!!!!!

    Coach Jimmy Dugan said it best, "there's no crying in curling!" Wait, I think he meant baseball, but you get my point.  Complain about the fans if you want, verbally scold them if that's what you need to get through the night.  But don't whine about it to the press.  I know it's the Olympics and you were very close to winning but take it like a woman and move on.  No one respects a sore loser. 

    Did I mention that Dupont is the skip of the team?  Well she is.  You are the leader, suck it up.

  • The Ballad of Brett Favre

    Posted by Matt Z

    Are you kidding me?  This is a joke right?'s not?  These dudes actually took the time to right a song about Brett Favre and make a video too?  This is unbelievable!  And by unbelievable I mean completely ridiculous.  Please don't enjoy:
