John starts by discussing a great article by John Kryk about the reasons the Bills games in Toronto need to end, which includes Buffalo and Toronto taking shots at each other. Wease also argues that the Bills, and their fans, are being hurt by the Bills having a home game played in Canada. It looks like Bills GM Russ Brandon may agree with Wease... he's been quoted as saying...
“One of the things I said to you and the fans on Jan. 1 of this year was I was going to review every phase of this operation, and this series comes within that framework. There is a full evaluation that will take place on all of our business (including) what this series means, and I’m going to look at it very closely.
“It has been a challenged market there and certainly has not translated into enough wins for us there.”

The guys also talk about this years cold weather Super Bowl, and if it's successful will the NFL open up future championships to other cold weather locations.
Marshall Fine Movie Reviews
We're talking to Marshall a day early this week because he's head off to Dubai for a film festval... tough life.
The only big movie this week is "Out Of The Furnace" starring Christian Bale, Woody Harrelson, Casey Affleck, and Zoe Saldana. Wease makes fun of how cheesy the description is...
From Scott Cooper, the critically-acclaimed writer and director of Crazy Heart, comes a gripping and gritty drama about family, fate, circumstance, and justice. Russell Baze (Christian Bale) has a rough life: he works a dead-end blue collar job at the local steel mill by day, and cares for his terminally ill father by night. When Russell's brother Rodney (Casey Affleck) returns home from serving time in Iraq, he gets lured into one of the most ruthless crime rings in the Northeast and mysteriously disappears. The police fail to crack the case, so - with nothing left to lose - Russell takes matters into his own hands, putting his life on the line to seek justice for his brother.
Marsh though this movie was very good, and you've never seen Woody Harrelson so evil... even in "Natural Born Killers".
Wease talks about going to Tony D's last night, and running into the guy that called Jackie Nutt the c word yesterday.

Kevin Downey Jr.
We're joined in studio by Marianne's friend, comedia Kevin Downey Jr., not to be confused with Robert or Morton Downey Jr.
Wease got a kick out of the bio we found online for Kevin...
Kevin Downey Jr. grew up in Detroit, Michigan. He made his TV debut at age six on CKLW's "The Bozo Show" where he won a hockey stick, a 12-pack of Orange Crush and some Tootsie Rolls playing, The Bug Game. Kevin eventually moved to New York City looking for fame and fortune. He instantly landed a part at Macy's Santaland as an elf. Kevin was decimated to learn all elves were fired after the Christmas Eve shift. Shortly thereafter, Kevin went to his first comedy show at New York's "Comic Strip Live" and realized his calling; however, it would be three years until he had the courage to get on stage himself.
Kevin has headlined clubs everywhere in the U.S., and can be heard regularly on "The Bob and Tom Show", as well as, Sirius and XM Satellite radio. Kevin is also a proud member of Armed Forces Entertainment and he travels the world performing for the troops. Some of the bases he's been to include Pearl Harbor, Guam, Roi-Namur, Kwajalein Atoll, Singapore, Diego Garcia.
He's also appeared on "Comedy Central", "What Not to Wear" and "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy." Kevin appears at the Trop's "Comedy Stop" in Las Vegas at least four times a year. He truly appreciates his ever-growing fan base. Kevin authors a column called, Drinking on $11 a Night, which can be read in "Bachelor Pad Magazine" and "GC" magazine, and online at usedwigs.com. Kevins song, "Secret Garden of Dirty Little Whores (who think they're better than me)", can be heard on college and traditional radio stations throughout the country. His nationally-released DVD called, "I'm not Gay, but Don't Stop" can be found on both Amazon.com and Netflix.
Creepy Kevin Downey Jr.
Marianne says Kevin is really good at being creepy, and they tell stories about gigs they've done together, including a really weird show in Alaska for a raging alcoholic promoter. This music video by Kevin shows how creepy he can be with his take on a stalker Elvis.
We're Not Gay, But...
The name of Kevin Downey Jr. DVD "I'm Not Gay, But Don't Stop" get Wease and Street Willie talking a little bit about Wease's famous "knob from a dude" story, which leads to more sex talk.
We also talk about colonoscopies, including a very funny story from Comedy Club owner Mark, who got his butt checked while in the presence of a hot med student, who looked like Kim Kardashian. Wease tries to get Willie to get a colonoscopy, which he's afraid of.
Paul Walker Story Of The Day
We found out this week that Paul Walker once bought an engagement ring for a soldier to give to his wife. But that isn't even the whole story. The couple he bought the ring for NEVER KNEW it was him, until now. They just did an interview and talked about meeting Paul in the jewelry store, but not knowing who he was. (Their names are Kristen and Kyle Upham. The story only came out because a clerk in the jewelry store came forward after Paul died. Her name is Irene King, and she worked for Bailey, Banks and Biddle in Santa Barbara, California, back in 2004 when the Uphams went shopping for a ring. The couple says Paul talked to them and found out Kyle had just come back from Iraq. They left without buying a ring that day, but the next day they were called back to the store, and someone handed them the ring and told them it was paid for. But Paul had left instructions not to give out his name.)

Kevin Downey Jr. tells stories about his interest in ghosts, and "ghost hunting". There are places in Rochester he should check out while here.
