Wease The Arguer
Wease went to a charity event last night, and wound up in a very loud, very public political argument that started with a lady saying she disagrees with everything he says on the radio. It ended with the woman yelling a string of obscenities, including a ton of f bombs. Wease is a little hungover, and expecting the woman to send a hit man to come put him out of his misery. Doreen had to go pick up Lucy at cheerleading, or could've pulled Wease away... or got involved herself.
Wease questions 2 things from our "This Day In History" prep...
35 years ago . . . in 1978 - STEVEN TYLERand JOE PERRY of AEROSMITH were injured during a concert in Philadelphia when an excited fan THREW A CHERRY BOMB ON STAGE. For many moons afterwards, Aerosmith would only perform behind a chain-link fence. Is this true?
22 years ago . . . in 1991 - Joseph Harris, an ex-postal worker, killed three other postal workers and a woman in New Jersey . . . and inspired the term "GOING POSTAL" We think the term dates back to the 80's.
Tools With Sports
The St. Louis Cardinals beat the Pirates in game 5 of their playoff series, and will now face the Dodgers in the NLCS. The Tigers and A's play a game 5 of their own tonight. Wease and Tools will be rooting for Oakland because they're fans of the movie Moneyball.
Mike Ditka had a perm in the 1980s. Surprisingly, that is not the Hall of Famer’s biggest regret. The tight end-turned coach-turned ESPN analyst said earlier this month that the one move he second-guesses himself about most is his decision not to run on the Republican ticket in the 2004 U.S. Senate race. His would-be opponent that year? Illinois state Sen. Barack Obama. Wease wants to know if Ditka's running mate would've been Ted Nugent.
The Bills still have some tickets to sell for this Sunday's game against the Bengals, and have offered the tickets at a discount.
Men's Fashion Mistakes
There are a million lists out there of fashion mistakes made by men, and the one we got today has things like sagging jeans, deep v-neck tshirts, and sports jerseys. Pauly and Billy try and defend the jerseys... it represents something they enjoy, and is a clue to other sports fans that they might have something in common. Marianne calls it a warning for women to aviod them.
Bonus Content...Hotties Wearing Jerseys
Quick question... If you could sum up your life in one sentence what would it be? Wease's should be "I'm all in". Our favorite is "The adult me is pretty disappointed, but the kid me would think i'm pretty awesome".
Cameras In Casinos
We revisit the topic of "blue light" cameras in public to catch criminals, and leads to talk of cameras in casinos and how they've caught people cheating, keeping wallets found laying on the ground, and stealing.
Shari With News
Our buddy, comedian Bobby Slayton, is in studio. He's performing at The Comedy Club in Webster all weekend. The rundown should be easy for the next couple hours because I can just write "Slayton is still talking..."
Bobby tells us stories about his friendships with Robin Williams and Jerry Seinfeld, upcoming TV shows he's working on, and his classic role as "Pauly The Polar Bear" on a Disney show with Demi Levato.
Wease and Bobby discuss blue musicians, high school reunions, and aging.
Even More Slayton
Bobby is still talking, this time telling us about TV gigs he has coming up, including a Nickelodian show for moms about Parenting, and a celebrity cooking show. He and Marianne also talk about the times they've been on the late night show Comics Unleashed (which is legendary for awkward transitions between the host and his guests). An episode Marianne did was just on last night.
Also a discussion of people that go to chain restaurants when they are on vacation instead of checking out mom & pop owned places, and how people want more food than they can eat.
"Go see Bobby while he's still living."... Brother Wease
Wease talks about why he worrys about Bobby, Bobby sings the praises of cocaine and gives some advice to Street Willie. Bobby also talks about the ups and downs of showbiz, roles in movies and TV shows including voices for Family Guy and Pink Panther, and more.
We're joined in studio by Robbie Haltiwanger, who is playing Carl in the musical "Ghost", based on the hit movie. The Broadway play is currently playing at The Auditorium Theater, and for more info go HERE.
Robbie talks about his acting career, and being in shows as diverse as "Jesus Christ Superstar", "Fiddler on The Roof", and "Tommy".
