It's been a nice run, but the warm weather is over for a little while, and it's gonna be cold for this weekend's St. Paddy's Day Parade. Will this keep people from getting drunk at the parade? Will this keep people from bringing their pet dogs, snakes, and ferrets into huge crowds of people? No way.
Recently Doreen mentioned to Wease that since he eats a ton of fish he might want to get his mercury level tested. In the weirdest coincidence ever Wease got a call yesterday from the NY State Health Dept, and left a message saying it had to do something about mercury. Wease and the guy that called have played phone tag since... so we're gonna call on the air today. Billy thinks Doreen is setting up an elaborate April Fool's Day Joke.
Pauly got a physical exam yesterday. Good news... he's healthy. Bad news... his weight is up to 300 lbs and his doctor yelled at him for being morbidly obese. After leaving the doctor's office he immediately went to Pittsford Dairy for chocolate milk.
Tools With Sports
It's free agent day in the NFL... what do we expect the Bills to do to make a big spash? Not much, really. They'll probably sign a couple lower end guys, but don't expect a game changer like WRs Victor Cruz, Greg Jennings, or Mike Wallace.
Major League Baseball's spring training is happening right now. And a waitress from HOOTERS got in on the action Saturday.
--It was during a game between the Rays and Phillies. And the waitress . . . named "Priscilla" . . . was the ball girl fielding foul balls down the third base line.
--Problem is, she fielded a FAIR ball by mistake . . . then tossed it to some kid in the stands. (--Since it's the pre-season, it didn't really matter. But in case you're wondering, the batter was awarded a double on the play.)
This leads to a discussion of viral videos, and how people get famous nowadays. Before YouTube even existed we had Steve Bartman wreck his life by interfering with a play at a Cubs playoff game, and Jeffrey Maier become a hero in NY for doing the same thing at a Yankees game.
Did you see who the Philadelphia Eagles drafted? Michael Jackson's 14 year old daughter Paris has been asked to be an Eagles cheerleader. We're weirded out that Tools doesn't know who Paris Jackson is. She can't be an Eagles dancer until she's 18.

Doug With News
Wease also talks about finally seeing an interview he recorded for public access TV. It's been running for about 6 months, and the people that did it sent him a dvd, along with a highlight reel of interviews done by other people. Just like everyone, he's too critical of himself and thinks he looked like a schmuck.
Another Thing Wegmans Is Good At
Wease talks about going to Wegmans yesterday, and on a TV a yoga video was running. When looking at it closer he realized the woman in the video was Danny Wegman's wife Stenzy. Is the Wegman family so broke they're trying to make a couple extra buck by producing yoga videos.
We talk about how hot Mrs. Wegman is, and if saying that makes us creepy. Wease says woman only says a guy is creepy if they don't find you attractive. A handsome guy can do the same things an ugly guy does, but not be creepy. Fame trumps ugly, so famous people can still be ugly and not be creepy.
How To Be Happy/Billy In NYC
We got an interesting list in our prep that we discuss...
When you're not happy with your life or your work, you tend to dwell on the BAD stuff . . . which only makes you more miserable.
--So to help prevent that, here are five phrases you should get in the habit of saying . . . because supposedly they're all things "happy" people say a lot.
--Obviously just saying them ONCE probably won't make you any happier. But if you start putting yourself in situations where you can say them more OFTEN, it might.
#1.) "I'm Looking Forward to It." This one's all about staying optimistic and planning things you WILL look forward to.
--For example, studies show that you're actually happier in the weeks leading UP to a vacation than when you're actually ON vacation. And planning smaller things to look forward to can make you happier too, like going golfing or seeing a movie.
--But obviously it's harder to get excited about day-to-day stuff, like going to work. Which is why people who DO figure out a way look forward to Monday mornings tend to be happier than most people in general.
#2.) "I'll Give It Another Shot." The gist of this one is to make sure that when you fail at something, you don't automatically quit it. Because even though you won't reach every goal you set for yourself, just TRYING tends to make people happier.
#3.) "Hello." If you DON'T say it very much, it means you're probably not being very social. And maintaining an active social life is one of the most important keys to happiness.
--In fact, a ton of studies have found that the more social you are, the less likely you are to get depressed. And according to at least one study, "happy" people tend to live about 35% longer than people who suffer from depression.
#4.) "Thank You." It's the easiest way to acknowledge the little things you're grateful for. And saying it A LOT can have a subconscious effect on how grateful you are in GENERAL.
--Which is important, because it's pretty tough to feel angry or sad when you're feeling appreciative about something.
#5.) "I Had a Busy Day." It might SEEM like you'd be happier just sitting on the couch watching reruns of "Jersey Shore". But the reality is, most people are happiest when their days are full.
--Obviously you shouldn't be a work-a-holic. And sometimes wasting a whole Saturday in front of the television CAN be relaxing. But as a general rule, the more productive your days are, the happier YOU are.
Wease talks about his busy days and how he feels it keeps him vital and alive. Billy addresses the point about saying "hello"... he used to work with someone that said hello to everyone everyday, and that guy wound up shooting his wife, setting his house on fire, and shooting himself in the face last week.
Wease asks Billy about his NYC trip, and all the things he did while there, including a blow by blow (pun intended) description of The Museum Of Sex. Also, going to a broadway show, The Comedy Cellar, Carnegie Hall, Midtown Comics, and more. Check out pics and more HERE. Wease was so impressed with how much Billy and Susan did he was gonna motherhucker friends that go to New York all the time and don't have this much fun... except Wease didn't say "hucker"... he said a word that had to be delayed.
During the commercial break Wease calls the guy at the NY Health Dept. that called him yesterday about his mercury levels. Turns out Wease has very elevated level in his system. Wease calls his personal physician, who just got the test results, and they need to try and find out what caused this.... is it all the fish Wease eats? Are there other factors in his life? Is it medication Wease takes? Is someone trying to poison him? This is really weird, and we'll let you know what we find out. I still hope this is the world's most elaborate prank.
Wease The Marriage Counsellor
A listener calls needing marital advice from Wease. He and his wife don't talk anymore, he's met another chick that he's attracted to, and only the kids seem to keep them together... what should he do? The main thing Wease thinks needs to be done is communicate... show his wife nurturing and love, talk to her, see what she wants out of the relationship. If this isn't possible it may be time to let go, but show the kids you still love them. A truck driver calls with a similar story, and how he has started to rebuild his marriage with the same things Wease is saying, although he has suspected that his wife has cheated. I can't convey how good Wease's advice was... he voiced his thoughts so well he sounded like the best husband ever...
Get Well Willie
Our buddy Street Willie calls in and asks us to say prayers for him... he's having surgery on his eyes this morning to help with glaucoma. He's so nervous he says he's having his surgery at RIT. We hope he means Strong Hospital at U of R... if he's having it done at RIT he may want to cover his eyes. We're sure he's gonna be fine, and can't wait to see him again (and hope he can see us).
Join us tomorrow, and if Wease's mercury levels haven't killed him by then we'll be doing "Ask Wease", our annual NCTnA draft to pick our hottest chicks for the annual competition, some of the fine folks from Geva for "The Book Club", legit news from Doug, and Wease's daily sports argument with John Ditulio. It's nice to be important but more important to be nice.
