I'm over him like a bad divorce

Tuesday, Jan, 15 2013

Full coverage of the Lance Armstrong confession to kick off the Tuesday PhilCast, including my take on how I see this sad story unfolding.

Being a pretty serious cyclist since my total hip replacement surgery in the fall of 2000, I looked to Lance's story for inspiration and motivation as did millions of people.

I once remember having a very candid conversation with Lance's mom over a lunch where I introduced her at an event promoting a book she had written. From my memories of that day, I guess you could say lance had his own mom duped too.

This may not be a big deal for you, but it IS to me...and I'll talk about why when we chat this afternoon on the show.

She's BEAUTIFUL!

Monday, Jan, 14 2013

I needed something to cheer me up on a cold Monday morning after a lousy weekend. And there it was as I began to prep for the Monday PhilCast show. A link to the newly-unveiled 2014 Corvette Stingray. Pass the drool bucket please. It looks like it is going 100 mph standing still!

Miss Wisconsin goes for two in a row Saturday

Friday, Jan, 11 2013

In your best Bert Parks voice sing along with me now....

"There she is....Miss America"

The Miss America pageant will be held in Vegas Saturday night, on TV opposite the Green Bay Packers. Being a pageant junkie I'm almost torn, but the Packers win out. I'll record Miss America.

Can a Miss Wisconsin win it two years in a row?

There's our hope, Kate Gorman, who is scheduled to be my guest on the PhilCast today right after the 4:00 news.

It has been done before....same state with back-to-back wins, but not often and not lately.

We shall see.

Could be a big weekend for the Badger State--the Packers win and so does Kate?!

Enough with the flu shot video

Thursday, Jan, 10 2013

It's officially here and it's a bad one this year; Flu season has arrived.

We'll talk about how bad it is in the Fox Valley on the PhilCast today when he have a local expert on the subject on the show.

Meantime, one of my many pet peeves with TV news is the always-present video of people (and in some cases little kids screaming) getting a flu shot.

I know what a flu shot looks like.

I neither need nor want to repeatedly see people getting stuck with a big needle on the TV every time a station does a story about the flu season.

There, I got that off my chest.

And no, I never get a flu shot. And no, I'm not worried about a jinx on the subject now.
I bet you get a chuckle tonight when TV news does this story, complete with video of the dreaded needle being sunk into someone's flesh.

It's "Weigh-In Wednesday"

Wednesday, Jan, 9 2013

It has been one full week of detox for me, bringing us to the very first "Weigh-In Wednesday" report on the PhilCast.

If you are taking part, let me know how your first week went. Lose any? No change? Gain some?!

Send me an email and we'll keep track together for the next couple of months.

Then come April I say we celebrate with a big PhilCast pizza party somewhere!
