Guy is the guy

Do you know this guy?

It's Guy.

Guy Adams, the guy who got himself kicked off Twitter because of his tweets critical of NBC's coverage of the Olympics.

Now both Twitter and NBC are taking more heat than ever for this thin-skinned and heavy-handed reaction to Guy's thoughts on their coverage.

I agree. Let him tweet his heart out. I thought that was part of the charm of Twitter....a place where you can express your opinions about things without fear of ramification. I guess not.

There is a dazzling detail in all this that makes the story even more twisted in my opinion, which I will cover on the PhilCast today.

And how about the great root beer malt debate I've got going on regarding Tom's Drive-In!

                                                                             
  Yum.

The photo was sent to me by a listener who went in and ordered a root beer MALT like I asked him to do.

At least one other listener did the same thing and both reported that there was a little confusion from behind the counter as to exactly what a root beer malt was.

It's not a black cow really.
It's not a root beer float.

It's something that should be the consistency of a shake, but with malt and root beer flavor.

I first brought it up on the show after I ordered one at the Tom's in Little Chute and they looked at me like I came from Mars!

I then received a giant cup of ice cream with a little soda at the bottom. Good, but not what I was expecting.

But according to these PhilCast Family members who have tried it out now, Tom's seems to be more on-board with what I think of as a root beer malt.

Hey, I'm getting hungry now!
PerchWhich basket and a malt at Tom's anyone?
