Guy is the guy

Tuesday, Jul, 31 2012

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?

Too much hugging

Monday, Jul, 30 2012

There's too much hugging going on at the Olympics.

There, I've said it.

Watching some of the beach volleyball over the weekend it really got out of hand. And as you can see, it wasn't just the women.

I mean really...do you need to hug and high-five after EVERY point, won or lost? They do.

Enough with the all hugging. Get on with the games.

But that's not my biggest complaint when it comes to the 2012 Olympics.

I'll discuss what that is during the PhilCast Olympic Update at 4:30-ish today as usual.

First hour we'll be rating and talking about our weekends in our usual "Howz Yer Weekend?" segment. You can call live to chat about yours 281-1150 or 1-866-887-1150 or post up on the PhilCast Facebook fan page now by just clicking here.

BAM! It's Oly time!

Friday, Jul, 27 2012

Finally.
Time to start following the medal count, and it starts out with a bang.

Michael Phelps takes on his arch rival Ryan Lochte Saturday in the 400-meter individual medley.

This is gonna be good stuff.

I must admit I enjoy watching the Winter Olympics more than summer, but that's only because there is nothing else to do in winter but sit glued to my TV.

I'll be talking about the Games each day on the PhilCast after the 4:30 news, and I must warn you that if something big happens I WILL cover it on my show. I am not going to sit on info. In this day and age I wish you the best of luck if you are going to try to keep yourself in the dark until the prime-time network coverage of the Olympics.
....

Remember to plug away when it comes to a weekend event...or just chat up your plans for the weekend when we do "Chadoin' This Weekend?" on the show after the 4:00 news today. The segment only makes sense if listeners USE it to share what's going on throughout the state. As long as people are doing that I will continue with the segment. But if participation drops so will the segment....so don't sit on your hands....you can call us live at 1-866-887-1150 or locally 281-1150 are the RED OX PhilPhone numbers...or post up at the PC Facebook fan page: CLICK HERE to get there.

#$%^&*

Thursday, Jul, 26 2012

People who know me know that I don't swear much, especially at work. Today I'll have the story about how you people with the *&^%$ loud mouths in the @#$%^ workplace may just be hurting your careers. What U.S. city does the most swearing at work?

Also on the Thursday show, our lack of satisfaction with the hotels we stay in.

Lips LaBelle in-studio with his weekly Hollywood news and gossip and an Olympic update as well.

Plus I'm thinking about trying to get "Shoeless Rick" to parachute into AirVenture today just for kicks.

I don't 'get' lobster

Wednesday, Jul, 25 2012

I don't 'get' lobster. Never have.
I know a lot of people consider lobster to be a 'special' meal.

But I ask, what's so special about this?

It looks creepy.

It's a lot of work for little reward to me anyway.

Take away the butter and what's left? A meal that, the few times I have had it, leaves me still hungry!

I bring it up today on the show because of a story about a rather large lobster named "Larry" that has had a rather interesting turn of events at a restaurant.

Also Wednesday we'll be live from the EAA AirVenture, have some fun facts during our PhilCast Olympic update and hear another episode of "As the Ring Turns" to find out if Reggie has even bothered yet to start seriously looking for his lost wedding ring.
