The Discovery Channel has confessed that the video of a shark in the waters of Lake Ontario was a hoax to promote Shark Week. The president of the network admitted that it was a “life like prosthetic model shark”. We think it’s funny the “shark” now has it’s own Twitter account (@Sharktario).
R.I.P Johnny Winter
Blues legend Johnny Winter is dead at the ago of 70 after being in poor health for a while. Pauly describes introducing him on stage at the Lilac Festival a couple years ago, and Johnny looking like a sad little old man sitting by himself backstage before the show.
Wease starts the segment by trying to scare Johnny with the "Lake Ontario Shark"... Johnny doesn't like the ocean at all, and has seen Jaws too many times.
Tools pays tribute Greece Olympia basketball coach to his friend Steve DeRooy, who died yesterday suffering a heart attack while driving on Buffalo Rd.
The ESPYs were last night and had lots of cool moments...
- A funny monologue from Drake.
- An inspirational speech from SportsCenter anchor Stuart Scott, who is battling cancer.
- Michael Sam giving an emotional acceptance speech after winning the "Arthur Ashe Courage Award".
Erin Andrews Vs. Sports Radio
WEEI sports talker Kirk Minihane RAILED against Fox Sports reporter Erin Andrews earlier Wednesday, calling her a “gutless b-tch” on the “Dennis & Callahan Morning Show” over her lame interview with St. Louis Cardinals baseball star Adam Wainwright.
This all started after Wainwright jokingly said (in front of media folks) that he threw Derek Jeter some meatballs in his first at-bat… Andrews asked him about it following a massive backlash on Twitter -- He clarified that he was joking, and did not, in fact, give Jeter something to hit. Andrews followed up with, “Don’t you just love social media?”
That’s what set Minihane off.
Of course, there was an immediate backlash… So, last night, he apologized for the rant saying, in part, "My choice of words was wrong; I was wrong to have used them. To all whom I offended -- particularly Ms. Andrews -- I apologize." And we’re sure the company lawyer wrote that for him.

Arthur Ashe Wasn't Gay
Talking about Michael Sam's "Arthur Ashe Courage Award" at the ESPY's last night has Wease and Marianne wondering when Ashe came out as gay. Arthur was known for his courage fighting for civil rights, and against apartheid.
Comedian Dean Edwards is in studio, best known for his work on Saturday Night Live, and as the voice of the donkey in the new Shrek DVDs, and the Broadway version of the Disney movie. He and Marianne discuss hell gigs, and bad TV shows they've done like the time Marianne was on "Do You Want To Date A Comedian".
Dean and Wease bond over their love of the show "Orange Is The New Black', and discuss the best (and worst) series endings in TV history.
Here’s one we never saw coming. Radar Online is saying that Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel were extremely rude at the New York City premiere of their new movie, “Sex Tape.” Apparently the two treated their fans terribly when they approached for pictures and autographs. One eyewitness called their attitudes disgusting.
Fans waited for hours for a chance at meeting the A-listers, only to be ignored and lectured. One insider said, “When a 20-something fan asked Jason for a photo as he left the premiere, he said, ‘No,” and literally slammed the car door right in the fan’s face.” It was so bad that people gasped. As for Cameron, she turned a request for autographs with, “If I did it for you, I’d have to do it for everyone,” before storming off. Are we really surprised?
Another fan said, “Cameron was as unfriendly as can be and it was really disappointing. And Jason was downright nasty to his fans.” Wow!
This leads to a discussion of bad celebrity encounters... remember what a dick Davy Jones from The Monkees was when being interviewed by Wease?

Dean also talks about how his first week on SNL was supposed to be the first Saturday after September 11th, and the aftermath of living in NYC at the time.
