Sports Douche Bag Heaven
Area football fans got to wet their beaks this weekend with Andre Reed’s Hall of Fame induction, and the Bills/Giants preseason game. Bills lost, and we’ll be breaking down the game later. We thought Jim Kelly looked great in all the ceremonies he was involved in…. he looked better after battling cancer than we do when we’re healthy.
Marianne’s friend Claudia is visiting from NYC, so Wease grills her about growing up in Manhattan.
Park Ave. Festival
Did you go to the Park Ave Festival? Where do 200,000 people park for this thing. Pauly said he drove around for 40 minutes looking for a spot. He should have taken the bus like Billy did. He was happy there.

John's highlight of the NFL Hall Of Fame weekend in Canton, OH was the pass Jim Kelly threw to Andre Reed on stage during Reed's induction.
Did you see the statement Jon Bon Jovi released regarding keeping the Bills in Buffalo if he is allowed to buy the team? Read what it said HERE. Do you believe him?
In the Hall Of Fame Game the Bills lost to the Giants 17-13.
Marianne and Claudia talk about being roommates before Marianne moved back to Rochester, and Claudia returned to NYC. Their living together ended when bedbugs invaded the apartment they shared.

Wease also raves about his new favorite snack... burnt pretzels.

We speak for actors Richard Armitage and Sarah Wayne Callies from the new movie "Into The Storm". You may know Richard best from The Hobbit, and Sarah from her role as Lori Grimes on The Walking Dead.
Sarah pays us a huge compliment, talking about how when they started the this morning's radio she said she was most excited to talk to Wease because her husband and her family are from Canandaigua.
We speak to Richard and Sarah about their new film, the fandom of the geek culture and their appearances at Comic-Con.
Wease speaks to legendary musician Graham Nash about the release of a live box set from Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young taken from concerts recorded in 1974. Graham and Wease discuss music, art, photography, politics, and more. Great guy.
The Fire Challenge
Videos on YouTube are revealing a disturbing trend: the so-called fire challenge.
Teenagers are setting themselves on fire and posting the video as a social media stunt.
It has become so popular that a quick YouTube search for the term "fire challenge" turned up tens of thousands of videos.
In the videos, teens typically apply flammable liquid to their bodies, then flick a lighter. They quickly douse the flames before they can be hurt, but not everyone is quick enough.
Do kids have a death wish, or are they just stupid?
R.I.P Michael Johns
Sad news from over the weekend... American Idol finalist from season 7 Michael Johns passed away. He died in a very strange way.

Pauly being a hypochondriac gets Pauly worried about a blood cot possibly killing him.
