Happy St. Paddy's Day
This is like the St. Patrick's Day that wouldn't end... some folks have been celebrating since last Friday, then the huge parade Saturday, and now today is the real day. See pictures HERE.
Wease also talks about iconic standup comedian David Brenner, who passed away this weekend. He was on the Tonight Show more than any other guest ever.
Lots of NCAA Basketball going on this week with March Madness starting. The Syracuse Orange is a number 3 seed, and tons of local basketball fans are psyched because there will be games happening Thursday, Fri, Sat, and Sun.
Speaking of college basketball, Wease had the easiest bet of the year last Friday. He had NC State +9 against Syracuse. NC State didn't even need the 9 pts., winning straight up.
Sign up or 95.1 The Brew's March Bracket Challenge HERE and win some excellent prizes. Even if you don't know basketball at all you have a good shot.
We're excited that the Bills have signed a great defensive player away from New England... Brandon Spikes sound like Wease's type of guy... a trash talkin' big hitter.
We're sad to hear that Jim Kelly's cancer has returned.
As soon as Tools fills out his bracket we'll post it here.
Missing Malaysian Plane
The biggest story is the Malaysian plane that has been missing for over a week. Did it crash? Accident? On purpose by a pilot going crazy? If it was hijacked, how come no ransom demands? Terrorism? Aliens? Is it Obama's fault, trying to distract people from other problems? How come the passenger's cell phones aren't dead, but can't be tracked either? Does this make you more nervous about flying? Do you think the passengers are still alive? So many questions, so few answers. This is like "Lost"... or "Gilligan's Island".

Wease's Bad Friday
After the show Friday things didn't go well for Wease ... after leaving here he wound up at a liquor store that wasn't well stocked, so Wease had to question how he's still in business, questioning how many customers the store gets. Doreen and some friends of Wease's says he was too mean to the guy, but he disagrees.
Then Wease goes to his gig at Dunkin Donuts where he arrives right on time, but then has trouble parking. A combo of someone else trying to back out of another parking spot, Wease listening to loud music (Indigo Girls cover of "Uncle John's Band") and not hearing the other person's horn leads to a fender bender. Wease has so many gadgets in his car to prevent accidents like this, but he fought through those anyway, and now has to pay lots of money to have cars fixed.
The Dunkin Donuts Choir got right on it, and recorded a new song.
Maybe Wease will win money betting on college basketball. He's filling out a bracket right now, but if you want to follow Pauly's tips go HERE. Then win prizes by competing in 95.1 The Brew's March Bracket Challenge. Click HERE to play.
We play the song Wease was listening to when he crashed his car, and the bad karma around the song causes him to spill his coffee. Luckily Jackie Nutt is here to help him clean it up.
Police Chief Ciminelli
We're joined in studio by the new Police Chief Of Rochester, Michael Ciminelli, and his aide detective Camp. We talk to the chief about his career as an officer and detective. Wease thinks he would've been a great detective himself. Can Chief Ciminelli help Marianne with her speeding ticket? Probably not.
The chief also talks about the crime going on in the city, and what the police department is trying to do to catch the bad guys and be more of a presence in the community.
High School Bracketology
Shaker High School in Albany is facing controversy because guys at the school created a March Madness style bracket to rank girls at the school by their beauty. Do the complaints come from the pretty girls in the brackets, or the ones that didn't make the cut? Is it similar to voting for Prom Queen?
