We welcome Jackie Myers ("Jackie Nutt") as the newest member of The Wease Show, now that Brooksie has moved on to new duties upstairs.
Wease starts the morning talking about yesterday afternoon's Broncos/Cowboys game, which Denver wins 51-48. Wease had a bad weekend gambling, losing a college game on Saturday, taking Denver -7 1/2, and also betting and losing on the Patriots and the Giants. He bailed himself out a little by taking San Francisco last night... and if you didn't see the 11:30pm game Oakland beat San Diego 27-17.
Wease and Billy both saw "Gravity" starring Sandra Bullock this weekend. Great effects, excellent acting, but don't understand how the critics are wetting their pants over this flick to the extent they are, calling it one of the most exciting movies ever.
Tools With Sports
Lots of talk about yesterdays NFL games, and the news out of Buffalo is the signing of QB Pat White. Who? Pat White formerly of the Dolphins and Redskins is now a Bill. Wease argues that we should've signed Tim Tebow... he's a proven winner, and would bring excitement to WNY. Tickets would've sold too, preventing TV blackouts.
John says take Atlanta minus 10 over the Jets tonight.
The five Wease Shows members are each taking one day this week to pick bump tunes for the show. Today Pauly is picking the music, and has decided to use artists from Cleveland. We wind up talking about rock star Joe Walsh, who's from Cleveland, but Pauly isn't aware of him or his songs.
Miley On SNL
Miley Cyrus hosted "Saturday Night Live" over the weekend... For the cold open Miley did a skit where she met a future version of herself, played by Vanessa Bayer. And the future Miley tried to tell the current Miley about all the ways her VMA performance harmed America. (Before Old Miley appears, Kenan Thompson plays an old man who says Miley's VMA appearance led to the downfall of America. Then there's a flashback to the night of the VMAs, when Current Miley is getting ready for her performance.)
Old Miley tried to tell Current Miley that the performance might end up being too controversial. And Robin Thicke showed up, followed by one of the giant teddy bears she used that night. (The bear told Miley they shouldn't do it, but Miley didn't listen.)
Old Miley also asked Current Miley what was going on with her tongue. Then Will Smith came out and said he hoped Miley wouldn't do anything to offend his kids. (Jay Pharaoh does the Will Smith impression. At the end they come back to Kenan Thompson, and he reveals that Justin Bieber has served as the Prime Minister of Canada.)
Shari Smith News
Shari from WHAM 1180 filling in for the vacationing Doug Emblidge.
A 25-year-old bartender in Springfield, Oregon named Aurora Kephart got two Keno lottery tickets as a tip last Tuesday . . . and one of them won over 17 THOUSAND dollars. She actually tried to give it BACK to the guy who tipped her, but he wouldn't accept it. She says she's planning to use some of the money to buy a couch, but the rest is going in the bank.
According to a new study, the majority of men who cheat on their wives do it with someone OLDER, UGLIER, and LESS INTERESTING than her. So why are they attracted to the person? Because she's more CARING, a better LISTENER, and more PASSIONATE than their wife.
Of course the cheaters listen better... they haven't heard your stories a million times. Luckily for Doreen lots of weird stuff happens to Wease, so he always has new stories... but unfortunately for her she also has to listen to him on the phone with Joe T. breaking down poker hands.
Bonus Content... Fall Is In The Air

Wease's Latest Beefs
The latest thing to annoy Wease is people that use their intermitten windshield wipers when it's raining out. When the rain is steadier have your wipers go faster. Wease thought he was the only person this bugged, but Marianne is right there with him.
Wease and Marianne are also annoyed by people that won't eat vegetables, or even try to eat a little healthier.
Ya know who else pisses Wease off? Conservatives. Wease reads a viral email in which Secret Service agents supposedly denigrate Democratic president's, and praise Republican presidents. Well, this website corrects the false statements
Wease Loves Billy...
... but not the Billy that works for him. Wease is reading Billy Crystal's new autobiography and raves about it, talking about Crystal's movies, TV shows, and his favorite Crystal character "Face". Can ya dig it? I knew you could.
Wild And Out
What else pisses Wease off? the MTV rap/improv show "Wild 'n' Out", hosted by Nick Cannon. Wease saw a white rapper called Machine Gun Kelly (MGK) that pissed him off because he was such a dbag...
Marianne wants to know if we knew there was a oldtime gangster named "Machine Gun Kelly"
