I'm not sure how anyone could average more than nine hours of sleep a night . . . unless you're independently wealthy, don't have kids, and never binge-watch shows on Netflix. But even if you could sleep that much . . . don't.
According to a new study, getting TOO MUCH sleep is actually WORSE for you than getting too little sleep.
The researchers found people who slept more than nine hours a night had a higher risk of heart disease, diabetes, and anxiety.
People who slept under six hours also had higher risks of those, but not AS high as the people who slept over nine hours.
The best amount to sleep is between seven and nine hours a night.
Marianne talks about how she sleeps too much, napping throughout the afternoon. Wease is at the other end of the spectrum who gets less sleep. Marianne says it's a good thing she doesn't have kids because it's cut in on her nap time. Wease talks about how kids are wonderful, but they CAN wreck everything too, and cause hassles.
Marianne admits she was a pain in the butt as a kid, needing to have her parents drive her around to play practices (the theater equivalent of sports).
We also discuss the police chase/shooting in Washington DC. Wease doesn't understand why the police would shoot the woman, while Pauly tries to explain possible motives.
Tools With Sports
Pauly invited a bunch of Bills fans over to his house to watch Buffalo take on his beloved Browns. The game saw both starting QBs go down too injury, but Cleveland backup Brandon Wheedon handling the pressure better than Jeff Tuel. The Bills were up 24-17 in the 3rd, but the Browns prevailed 37-24.
Pauly won the "bump tune" bet because of the Cleveland victory, but has donated his prize to Brooksie because it's his last day on the show.
Former major league outfielder Chad Curtis was sentenced Thursday to seven to 15 years in prison for inappropriately touching teenage girls.
According to prosecutors, Curtis, 44, sexually assaulted the girls last year when he was a volunteer weight-room strength trainer at a high school in Barry County, located between Grand Rapids and Lansing. A 16-year-old girl said he touched and kissed her breasts. Two 15-year-old girls said Curtis inappropriately touched their buttocks.
Curtis was sentenced in Michigan by Barry County Circuit Judge Amy McDowell, who called the two-time World Series champion a "predator." Tools talks about Curtis' game winning HR in a World Series game against the Braves, and then blowing off interviewer Jim Gray because Gray had sad bad stuff about Pete Rose.
We usually speak to Marshall Fine on Friday's, but because of Marsh's schedule we spoke to him yesterday. Wease talks flicks for the people that tune in at this time for that.
Wease is looking forward to "Runner Runner", the poker movie starring Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck. The reviews are awful, but Wease says he enjoys every poker movie.
"Gravity" with George Clooney and Sandra Bullock also opens today, and the reviews are fantastic. Wease doesn't understand how two people stuck alone in space is better than a poker movie.
"Bad Milo", a horror comedy about a guy with a creature in his ass, also opens. This might be a scary movie wants to see because it's silly.

A Long Distance Dedication To Casey Kasem
Casey Kasem's children have issued an ultimatum to their step-mom, Jean Kasem ... she has one more chance to let them see their ailing father ... and if she doesn't she'll lose control over his life.
The former, long-time host of "America's Top 40" is very ill with advanced Parkinson's and his kids have been trying in vain to see him for the last 3 months but they say Jean has blocked them.
So Kerri, Julie and Mike have hired a lawyer to negotiate with Jean, and here's the bottom line -- if she doesn't let them see their dad, the lawyer will go to court and ask a judge to create a conservatorship for Casey and make THEM the conservators.
They've tried everything else. As we first reported, they staged a protest earlier this week in front of the house but Jean called the cops on them.
And apparently it's not what you think. We're told the kids are not beneficiaries in Casey's will. They just want to see him before it's too late.
This leads us to play the classic outake where Casey goes nuts about having to play an uptempo song, and then talk about a dog dying. Marianne and Wease roleplay this situation with Marianne talking about sad stuff while "Walking On Sunshine" is playing.
Lovely Warren In Studio
We're joined in studio by Democratic mayoral candidate Lovely Warren to talk about her continuing campaign, and problems in the city of Rochester that she's hoping to fix if she is elected mayor.... drugs and violence the biggest.
Listeners also call to ask Lovely about her credentials, problems in the city schools, contract issues between the city and the Amerks.
Jody Gage from the Rochester Amerks is here to promote tonight's season opener vs. the Calder Cup champs from Grand Rapids. Wease reminisces about hockey seasons from his past, and the Buffalo Sabres of the future.
Chas Elstner Vs. Iron Butterfly
Comedian Chas Elstner is back in studio, and one of the many things he's good at is sound effects and impressions... he amazes us by doing the drum solo from Inna Gadda Da Vida with his voice.
A new survey just came out with a list of the WORDS people HATE the most, and I can sum them up in two categories: Words insufferable people use on Twitter, and words that make you think of the gross aspects of your genitalia.
Here are 10 of the most hated words right now . . .
This leads to other words we hate like the overuse of "like", literally, hashtag, and others.
Bye Bye Brooksie
Today is Brooksie's last day as a member of the show... he got kicked upstairs to be an important management type guy, so it's the last time he get's to sing Cherry Bomb with us. Jackie Nutt will be with is everyday.
In a weird transition that can only happen on The Wease Show... a list of new Halloween costumes leads to Marianne doing an impression of Paula Deen, and then an impression of olt time movie star Mae West, which leads to Viet Nam stories from Wease.
