My New Show and Podcast



It’s a been a minute since I’ve posted here so I thought I’d give an update. My new show is called ‘Broadway’s Backyard’ and it airs weekdays from 5-10am on Y108 in Pittsburgh. Not in the Burgh? No worries! Just grab the app. Eventually the show will be available on demand via iTunes. I’ll let ya know when that happens. The show is a lot of fun, I feel re-energized and my boss is great! We laugh a lot. Mostly about stupid shit.

Speaking of iTunes. While I was out of work I started a podcast with a good friend of mine. It’s called ‘Beer Vs Bourbon,’ but don’t let the name mislead you. It’s about so much more than beer and bourbon. Anything goes. We talk music and life…we tell stories and sprinkle in some beer and bourbon talk. New episodes are available weekly on iTunes. If you don’t have iTunes, click this.

Luke Combs’ Career Has Stalled Out

Timing is everything. As history has taught us, it’s never a good idea to release weather-themed songs in the dead of hurricane season.

Thanks to Hurricane Harvey, Luke Combs’ first number 1, “Hurricane”, has not only been dropped from every radio station’s playlist, but it’s actually been losing the record label money. Sales have gone from 1000+ a week to -2000! Meaning consumers have actually been returning the single which has been forcing retailers to give refunds.

His latest single, “When It Rains It Pours” has yielded similar results making Luke one of the biggest busts in music history.

This article is 100% satire.

Did the Lions Have a Choice?

No, they did not. If they didn’t pay Staff-infection, what are the options? They could franchise him, but that would really only save them 600k next season. Then what? Jake Rudock is under contract until 2019. Is he the answer? He did perform well against New England’s 16th string. Or we could sign the Taliban’s 2nd in command, Colin Kaepernick. I bet he’ll still be available. Or how about Brett Favre? Think he remembers his own name, let alone how to play football?

Stafford’s record against teams with winning records sucks. But did he single-handedly lose those games? A few, yes, I’m sure. With the exception of the 2014 season, Detroit’s defense and running game have been abysmal since 2009. Those are the elements that complete a team, and make them truly competitive.

Stafford is the highest paid player in NFL history. For now. That will change soon enough. It’s called inflation. As the cap rises, so will salaries.

For the 2017 season Stafford will make just $2 million more than Derek Carr. Carr has played in just 1 playoff game (he lost, by the way). Meanwhile, Andrew Luck, Carson Palmer, Drew Brees, Joe Flacco, Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Ben Roethlisberger…and yes, the GOAT, Tom Brady all make less than Carr. And they’ve all won playoff games. The point is, if you’re a solid QB, you’re gonna get paid. Stafford’s extension not only opens up cap space thanks to the signing bonus, but it also frees up the franchise tag for Ziggy Ansah.

While we’re on the subject, let’s revisit an old clip of Jason Aldean talking about the Lions drafting Staff-infection.
