Not So Super Bowl
A tough day in Rochester radio because there is so much to talk about... yesterday's big game, and the death of Fairport native Phillip Seymour Hoffman are both huge news.
How quickly did you find out about Hoffman's death? It was immediate for Wease and Pauly because of technology, and even Billy who doesn't have a smart phone was told immediately by a listener the second he left a movie theater he was in.
Bonus Content... Remembering Phillip Seymour Hoffman
Wease is happy with his wagering this weekend. He had Seattle in yesterday's game, and also Duke +4 against Syracuse. The Orange won the game but Wease's wager covered. The Seahawks won the Super Bowl 43-8, so that wasn't even close.
Tools was rooting for Seattle, but thought Denver was going to win the Super Bowl.
Millionaire Mark Cuban won a ton of money, betting that a safety was the first score of the game. This may not be true, according to a listener.
Boxer Floyd "Money" Mayweather lost 10 million betting on Denver. Hope he lives up to his nickname.
Did you see the random guy that ran on camera during the post game press conference? Sounds like he had some important info about 9/11. How did he get past security?
The half time show was AWESOME!!!
We call our official film critic Marshall Fine to talk about the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Marsh was the first writer to do a piece on the actor when Hoffman was first starting to do movies.
I learn that Phillip had a drug problem before he was ever successful, and had been clean for 20 years before relapsing last year, and dying yesterday from a heroin overdose. It seems that heroin is making a comeback in the drug circles.
Hoffman won an Oscar for "Capote", but Wease and Marshall both highly recommend "Owning Mahoney". Other great movies Phillip can be seen in include "Magnolia", "Almost Famous", "Moneyball", "Boogie Nights", and many more.

More Super Bowl Stuff
Our resident football expert Mr. NFL called to talk about yesterday's game. He had called us Friday correctly breaking down every aspect of the game, so he wanted to gloat a little. He's also a HUGE fan of Joe Namath, so we ask about Joe's fur coat, and the mistake coin toss.
Wease also tells about his drunken weekend at Tony D's, meeting a lesbian couple named Andrea and Jennifer getting married, and doing the hack bit where he asks for a threesome.
Wease talks about the fun time he had, drinking for 6 hours, not taking Sammy to a high school hockey game like he said he would, and Doreen dropping his drunk ass off poker at midnight. Let's just say he didn't play his best... he was sort of the Denver Broncos of card playing.
Super Bowl Ads
We talk about our favorite Super Bowl ads. Lot's of weak ones this year, but we did like the Seinfeld reunion (Marianne thinks it's funny because Jason "George" Alexander got a hair transplant since the show ended, so needed a bald cap to recreate his character).
the Sarah McClaughlin car commercial was funny, as was the Reese's menage ad, and the Full House reunion, which Wease thought was funny for the dirty sex joke, because he wasn't familiar with "Full House".
Pauly's favorite ad was local... our friend Nicolette Hart has a new commercial for Bombar Nuts wearing a bikini. See it HERE
Our friend, nationally known film critic Jack Garner, calls to talk about the death of Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Jack recounts long conversations he's had with Phillip, the segment 60 Minutes did with Hoffman talking about his drug history, Jack's friendship with the actor's mother, and more.
Seth Myers SNL Farewell
Saturday was Seth Myer's final episode of SNL, and got choked up during his farewell at the end of Weedend Update.
Pauly also dug the Black History Month parody...
Beatles Week On Letterman
Last month, it was revealed that the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’ would be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Beatles‘ arrival in America with a week of programming dedicated to the group. Yesterday (Jan. 31), the show announced most of the musical acts that will be participating in the festivities from Feb. 3-7.
ABC News Radio reports that on Monday, indie band Broken Bells, a collaboration between the Shins‘ James Mercer and producer Danger Mouse, will perform ‘And I Love Her.’ They’ll be followed the next night by Sting, singing ‘Drive My Car.’ Wednesday will feature the Flaming Lips, with special guest Sean Lennon on ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,’ and Lenny Kravitz will play a song to be determined on Thursday.
That leaves Friday, Feb. 7 open. It has been rumored that the producers have expressed interest in getting Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr for that episode. After all, that day will mark the 50th anniversary of their landing at New York’s Kennedy Airport, and the ‘Late Show’ is taped in the Ed Sullivan Theater, where they made their famous first live televised performance on Feb 9th, 1964.
On Monday in Los Angeles, McCartney and Starr performed two Beatles songs during the taping of ‘The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles.’ The program will air Feb. 9 at 8:00PM Eastern on CBS.
