Braun thoughts

Thursday, Jul, 25 2013

Aside from comments I expressed on the WHBY Morning show, allow me to extend a couple of final thoughts on Ryan Braun and his suspension from MLB.

First, could his statement, likely composed by his handlers, been any more inane.  Saying "..I am not perfect." No kidding, really?  "I realize NOW that I have made mistakes." Just now, Ryan, not all along the way from day one? And, what you really did was make bad decisions that were essentially ONE BIG MISTAKE!  " I wish to apologize to anyone I may have disappointed.."  What, you mean...ALL OF US?  I'm not sure there are too many people applauding the lying, cheating and fraud that you have wrought  upon all involved.

Finally, to say that "..I am glad to have this matter behind me once and for all..".  Think again. You will never be looked upon the same way from this point forward.  From now on, just try to see Ryan Braun come to the plate or make a play in the field, and NOT think about his lies and cheating.

My vacation!

Monday, Jul, 22 2013

Sorry--no slides!  But, vacation was cool, even though it was 96 to 102 degrees every day!

Quick vacation notes:  When they tell you to drink plenty of water, and you do, isn't it amazing how little you have to..umm...go, after you drink all that water?  Mother Nature saps the fluids right out of you, so make sure you drink more than you think you need to!  Second, when an airline claims the 90-minute delay to your flight is due to "maintenance", do they realize how tough it's going to be for me to "maintain" my composure when it becomes 2 hours and 30 minutes and due to a missed shuttle, we don't get to our hotel until 1:25 in the morning???  Flying has become an increasingly unenjoyable experience...

Gald to be back in Wisconsin!

Get your own racecar!

Wednesday, Jul, 17 2013

Your chance to own a racecar is now and even better, you can race against us.  This years Race for a Reason is happening on September 14th and the proceeds are all going to Catalpa Health, a Fox Valley mental health clinic for children and teens.  I could tell you all about how fun it is to participate, but this video is much more entertaining.



There are just a few spots left for race teams, so get your company on board today.  For more information check out the Race for a Reason web page.  Please join us in making a difference for children right here in northeast Wisconsin.

Red Smith night at the stadium

Thursday, Jul, 11 2013

Kudos to all that attended and enjoyed Red Smith night at theT-Rats game last evening!  We handed out the scholarship checks to our special award winners, plus numerous checks to area youth sports organizations that keep the kids busy all year!

It won't be long before next year's Red Smith Sports Awards banquet comes around, January 21st at the Paper Valley Hotel.  We already have a major speaker booked, and should have a great show for the over 1,300 sports fans that attend every year!  WHBY is a big supporter of the Red Smith banquet, and I am proud to be a member of the committee.

Weekend re-cap

Monday, Jul, 8 2013

Quick notes from the weekend:  first of all--it felt like summer, didn't it?  Warm, humid, bugs starting coming out like crazy---summer!!

Good job Andy Murray!  That can't be easy carrying the country on your back, with no British Wimbledon champ for 77 years.  Forgot that he was also a student at Dunblane, the site of that school shooting massacre back in the 90's.  Andy survived that day, but I believe 17 students and teachers did not.

The crash of flight 124 at San Francisco was sad with two people dying, but amazing in that so many people lived through it.  All the best to those still recovering from the crash.

2.04 inches of rain on Monday morning in the trusty rain guage at WHBY--maybe round two on Tuesday--stay tuned and we'll keep Storm Team 5 ready with updates.
