Debating About The New Bills Stadium
Now that the news of a possible new stadium has had the chance to resonate with us for a full day. Wease thinks that anyone who believes that this idea is anywhere near realistic is an idiot. We brought John Ditullio in (who was featured on last night's 11 o'clock 13WHAM news) to talk about whether or not it actually COULD happen. John told us that the do have one of the NFL's top construction companies involved and do have a couple of very credible investors with deep pockets. That being said.. yesterday's meeting with the Buffalo City Council was step #1 of about 100 total steps to make this actually happen. The man who has proposed this idea.. Nicholas Stracick.. says that he has a plan to get The NFL's permission, the Bills' permission, and the city's permission. We wondered how Stracick got deep enough pockets to be behind a deal like this and found out that he won a lawsuit against Disney a bunch of years back for a couple of hundred million dollars over stealing an idea that he had for a sports camp. This is what they say it would look like:
The Social Host Law
The Social Host Law, which was adopted by the Monroe County Legislature in 2008, targets parents who allow underage drinking in their house. Ontario County regularly leans on the law to charge parents who know their kids and their friends are drinking alcohol. Specifically, the Social Host Law says a person who permits someone under 21 to drink in their home will face a fine of $250. We talked about how when we were young we all had a house that we went to where the parents were "cool" and let everyone drink over at their houses. When we couldn't go there.. we had to sneak it. Pauly told a story about having emptied Pepsi cans and then pouring beer inside of them to sneak it by his parents. We started debating when and if it's actually illegal to drink underrage. Of course it is.. but what if it's YOUR kid in YOUR house. Then it's okay.. so we hear. But apparently (according to a caller) you aren't allowed to get them hammered. Wease said that you aren't even allowed to get hammered if you are over 21.. which is true.. in public.. technically you can get busted for "public intoxication" at any point. The only place you can get hammered is in your own home.
Fantasy Slut League
A top-tier California high school informed parents of a "Fantasy Slut League" in which male students "drafted" female students and earned points for sexual encounters. We wondered if there's anything actually wrong with this.. legally. Okay okay.. we get it.. morally it's bad.. but legally? Wease says that it would be considered bullying and therefore.. is punishable. We talked about how funny it would be to get a list of the rules.. point values.. and have a look at draft night. We are sorry to make light of this.. but we made a couple of jokes about how if a girl is drunk then anything you do with her shouldl be worth less points than if she's sober. We also wondered if you have to drop a girl from your roster when she gets a boyfriend and pick up a free agent. It's only funny because we aren't involved.. if this was our daughter we admit we'd be singing a different tune. No one deserves to be bullied.
Wease's "Argo" Review
Wease and Doreen went and saw "Argo" last night and LOVED it. He said that it was one of those edge of your seats type films that you couldn't even help but hold your breath thru. It's a true story.. and Wease likes that at the end of the movie they show you all the real people. It's about a bunch of guys pretending to be film makers and going overseas to try and rescue some American hostages. We talked about how Ben Affleck has had one hell of a Hollywood turnaround. He started out on top.. coming in as partners with Matt Damon and crushing it in "Good Will Hunting". Then he became kind of a joke when he made a couple of crappy movies and dated J-Lo and was in one of her music videos while Matt Damon's career took off. Then.. a few years ago.. Ben Affleck came back and now is on top of his game. "The Town" was a GREAT movie.. and "Argo" is right there with it according to Wease.

Rolling Stones/Devil Songs
We talked about The Rolling Stones' announcement that they'll be playing 2 concerts in London and 2 in New Jersey.. one of which will be available on pay per view. Wease and Billy both plan on shelling out the money to see that ppv. Wease's favorite Stones' song is "Sympathy For The Devil. Someone tipped us to the fact that UltimateClassicRock.com has put together a list of The Top 10 Devil Songs.. and perhaps not surprisingly, "Sympathy for the Devil" took the top spot. We ran thru the top 5Here's the list:
1.) "Sympathy for the Devil", The Rolling Stones (1968)
2.) "Runnin' with the Devil", Van Halen (1978)
3.) "Devil's Food", which leads into "The Black Widow" on "Welcome to My Nightmare", Alice Cooper (1975)
4.) "Shout at the Devil", Motley Crue (1983)
5.) "Friend of the Devil", The Grateful Dead (1970)
Smuggling Drugs - A "How To"
The suspiciously towering hairdos of two women who had just flown into New York City from South America prompted federal agents to conduct searches that revealed each traveler was carrying more than two pounds of cocaine sewn into her weave, according to court records. Wease talked about how smuggling drugs in the weave is relatively innocent compared to what we hear about all the time (vaginas, asses). Wease said that the only real foolproof way is to swallow the drugs and then wait until you poop them out. Unless it's in your body where they literally can't look.. you're risking getting caught. Wease worries that they'll eventually learn how to use their airport TSA scanning equipment to look for drugs in the tummy. They can already see everything they see from those new scanners.
Question #1 - "My wife's sister got divorced and I am great friends with her ex and have no reason to not be friends with him anymore, problem is my sister in law wants me to stop having all contact with him and I do not want to. Should I respect her wishes I feel she is wrong in asking me that, she divorced him and that has no affect on my relationship with him" - Dave. Wease's answer is that when she is NOT around it's perfectly fine but don't invite the guy to any family parties or anything that your sister is going to be at.
Question #2 - Did you hear about the guy in Brazil who showed up ALIVE at his own funeral? If you showed up at your own funeral.. what would you hope to walk into? Wease says that he wants to walk in on chuckles, good friends telling good stories, and everyone having fun. He does NOT want to see tears. He knows that his wife and kids will cry.. but he wishes they wouldn't.. because he wants to be remembered with smiles and not tears.
Question #3 - Wease.. you've been thru a long life and done a ton of stuff.. is there anything on your bucket list? Wease says that travel is the big thing. He has never been to Europe and would LOVE to go. Other than travel though.. maybe just bang Angelina Jolie?
Jamie hipped us to something that we didn't even know existed until today. It's called BOO-ing. What you do is go up to someone's house and ring the doorbell and then run to the side and hide. After they come to the door and go back inside.. you go back to the door and ring the bell again. When they come to the door this time they'll find some candy that you've left for them along with a note telling them they've been BOO'd and a paper ghost for them to put up in their window so everyone knows they've already been BOO'd. Then.. once you're BOO'd.. you have to BOO two other homes before you are done. It's like a chain prank. Wease thinks it's the stupidest thing he has ever heard. Jamie and his wife did their BOO-ing last night.
Good Looking Couple Has Sex In Restaurant
On Monday night, a surprisingly attractive couple was busted for having sex on a table on the outdoor patio of a restaurant.. WHILE families with small children ate nearby. They ended up getting away with the sex because none of the families would provide statements.. but they DID get arrested for trying to skip out on the bill. Here's a picture of the couple.. like we told you.. they're actually good looking:
