The Fix Was In
Wease is PISSED this morning, and is now convinced that the NFL is fixed. He had Denver -7 1/2 in the late game yesterday for a lot of money. The Bronco's were killing the Chargers the whole game, up by 17, but San Diego made a comeback good enough to beat Wease, but not the Broncos. A recovered on-side kick led to FG that brought SD within 7 and Wease loses by .5
We're curious about the Super Bowl's halftime show with Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers, and how they will perform in the cold and snow... will they do a concert at a place like Madison Square Garden, and simulcast a segment at the big game?

It'll be New England at Denver in the AFC Championship, and San Fran at Seattle in the NFC next Sunday. Brady vs. Manning and Kapernick vs. Wilson. We dig Colin Kapernick's commercial for Beats headphones...
A-Rod has been suspended for the entire 2014 season for PEDs.
Wease is pissed after listening to Bob Matthews sports radio show last Friday when Bob said that kicker Morten Andersen doesn't belong in the Football Hall Of Fame. Andersen has scored the most points in the history of the NFL... how does he not belong in?
Golden Globes Recap
The Golden Globe Awards were last night, and it was a very entertaining show thanks in large part to hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who were very funny...

Doug Emblidge News
Billy went to The Comedy Club on Friday night to see Mick Foley, and was annoyed by rude people in the booth next to him that were holding their own conversation thru the whole show. Billy gave them the stare, and the quite "shhhh", but neither worked, and was too much of a pussy to do more. Marianne and Pauly both agreed about being uncomfortable in confrontational instances, and wish Wease was there to help us.
Billy also talks about Foley's show, his storytelling and Q&A which featured a surprise appearance by fellow WWE Hall Of Famer Edge.
Buffalo Radio Guy Goes Nuts
Amherst police responded to a 911 call early Wednesday morning at the Williamsville home of WBEN talk show host Tom Bauerle, who told officers he was under surveillance by operatives of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, according to two law enforcement sources familiar with the situation.
Two police sources, who did not want to be identified because Amherst officials have not released reports on the incident, said officers took a licensed, loaded, semi-automatic handgun from Bauerle when they encountered him in his backyard as he claimed a suspicious person was spying on him. The two sources also said the radio host personally summoned police and then consented to a voluntary psychiatric evaluation later that day at Erie County Medical Center after police contacted Crisis Services about their concerns
A texter asks if this might be a bit to gain publicity for the show, but we don't think so because there would be huge trouble for involving police and other authorities.
Pimp Suing Nike for $100 Million
26-year-old Sirgiorgiro Clardy is a PIMP in Portland, Oregon. And even though he's got a great name he's a TERRIBLE person.
In June of 2012, a john tried to leave a hotel without paying one of Clardy's prostitutes. And Clardy gave him a BRUTAL beating, including stomping on the guy's face over and over.
He ended up being convicted of second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon.
Well . . . Clardy was wearing Nike AIR JORDANS at the time. And now he's filed a $100 million lawsuit against Nike . . . for not putting a warning label on Air Jordans noting that it's dangerous to stomp on someone's face with them.
He's serving as his own lawyer in the suit. He wrote, quote, "Under product liability there is a certain standard of care that is required to be upheld by a potentially dangerous product . . . [Nike] failed to provide adequate warning or instruction."
Clardy got 100 years in prison for that beating, along with other charges for robbing the john and beating up the prostitute.
Because Boomer Got High
Is it possible to get a contact high just by being near someone smoking pot. Wease and callers say no, but former NLF QB Boomer Esiason says it happened to him while broadcasting a game a few years ago.
Buffalo Bills Lose Again
Local man Mikal Krueger (nephew of Hep Sales John Krueger) was one of several nation-wide winners of Visa's "My Football Fantasy" contest. He got to participate in a chicken wing eating contest against a bunch of Buffalo Bills including Fred Jackson, Aaron Williams and Brian Moorman.
Mikal, his wife Emily, and John join us in studio to talk about the contest, the cool stuff he got (including signed jerseys), and meeting his hero Jim Kelly.
From The Sidelines
We again talk about this past weekend's NFL playoffs, and wonder how many people does it take to cover a football game... the announcers, the guys in the studio, the lady sideline reporter, etc... How much do the sideline reporters like Pam Oliver and Erin Andrews make a year? Rumor has it between 600k and a million a year.

We also wonder how they would deal with a "Snowmageddon"... supposedly there is an emergency date, and they'd play the game on Saturday if a blizzard was gonna hit on Sunday.
If the cold weather Super Bowl is successful could that open things up to other cold cities like Buffalo and Cleveland.
