Since his son is an assisant coach on Xavier's men's basketball team, Bill Murray wasn't too happy that the Badgers knocked them out of the NCAA Tournament.  But apparently he shouldn't be surprised...






Sorry, Bill.

Apparently people like to "do the hibbity-dibbity" after the Super Bowl.  So much so that over the years a number of children were conceived after the big game.  They're called "Super Bowl Babies" and part of a spike in births in an NFL city nine months after their team wins the championship.

Seriously.  There's data out there somewhere that supports this.  So it's science.

Leave it to the NFL to seek out these precious angels, get them all together and have them join with singer Seal to perform a version of his biggest hit.  Not at all creepy or awkward, Roger Goodell.

And yes... there are Packer babies 
represented from the first Super Bowl.  Frankly, I was expecting a higher number but hey... you go, grandparents!

...as this 1986 video shows.  The band was asked by this German TV program to lip-sync their performance.  And they did in the best way possible...





Moral of the story:  Iron Maiden can play instruments.  Let them.

By the way, next week during "My Three Songs" it's your chance to win beer and a CD from Iron Maiden.  That's not a bad thing.

You know... the successful runner from UW-Madison and Stevens Point native.  She won championships and set records in track.  She was the pride of the state.

Then everyone found out she was making $500 an hour as a call girl.  THAT Suzy Favor-Hamilton?

She has a book coming out.  Click on the image for details.

I don't think they taught any of this at Madison.

Clerks

About 20 years ago, someone thought it would be a great idea to capitalize on the cult success of Clerks the movie and adapt it to the small screen.  And it might have worked except for two things...

1) Kevin Smith wasn't involved and...
2) Disney was.

So as you can imagine this didn't turn out well.  (No Jay & Silent Bob?  C'mon.)  Thankfully, Disney didn't go ahead with the idea... especially after they saw the pilot below.  Even a young Jim Breuer and Keri Russell can't save this trainwreck.  Enjoy.

A punk documentary!  It's educational!

Do you like to give money for worthwhile causes?  Sure you do.  So why not help out a number of area musicians and pony up for this documentary they're working on about the active 80s NE Wisconsin punk scene?  Just click on the picture for videos and other information on this very cool project.  You have a job now so there's no excuse.

Kenny Chesney in Green Bay

Thousands attended the Kenny Chesney show at Lambeau Saturday night and as you would expect, it was a drunken playground with numerous police calls throughout the evening.  Thank goodness Doug Schneider of the Green Bay Press Gazette was diligently relaying the entertaining scanner chatter on his Twitter feed.  Doug does this for the Packer home games each year and was all over Saturday night's s**t show.  Here's a collection of some of the better ones here.

And if you're not following Doug on Twitter, you should be.  Click here.

BTW... 22 arrested.  Alcohol may have been was a factor in all of them.

At my Catholic grade school in Marshfield, I used to lift up the girls' skirts at recess.  This kid's technique is much more advanced that mine ever was.  Fine work, lad.

Hi.  Ross here.  If you've been at my page on the Facebook (Ross Maxwell On 105.7 WAPL) you may have seen that it was my birthday.  Thanks for the good tidings and such.  My birthday reminds me of one of the great Saturday Night Live bits.  And since I like to share...

If you're a wrestling fan, by now you've heard that Dusty Rhodes passed away yesterday at the age of 69.  Dusty had some big matches over the years (easily found on YouTube) but he also known for his skilled mic work.  The guy could cut a promo and you can watch him in action here.

This is old but at a Brewers/Braves game a few years ago, these two young lovers from Atlanta (who kinda look related) grew tiresome of the action and started some of their own.




Get a room.  Sheesh.

Global Force Wrestling will be in Appleton!

There's a new wrestling promotion starting up and one of their first stops is in NE Wisconsin!

Global Force Wrestling comes to Fox Cities Stadium on July 9th with tickets going on sale tomorrow.  The new promotion is run by Jeff Jarrett who you may remember as a former NWA and WCW World Heavyweight Champion and a WWF Intercontinental Champion.  In fact, you can meet him tonight when he throws out the first pitch at the Timber Rattlers game at 7:05!

For more on the GFW event in July as well as tonight's appearance, click here.

Here's an experiment I can get behind... rolling tires down a ski jump.




So who wants to run up to the U.P. and send a bunch of tires off Copper Peak?
