Rochester News Headlines
Wease starts the morning with an "I told you so". Last week when 3 people were murdered on Chili Ave. Wease had a theory that it was related to a local drug ring. Police confirmed that suspicion yesterday with the arrest of 6 people connected to a drug ring, and were in possession of the murder weapon used in the triple homicide.
One of the things the people above were arrested for was possession of marijuana. Is it odd that pot is illegal in one state, but in nearby states it's not only legal, but being advertised on TV? Later this morning we'll be talking about the add campaign for weed in New Jersey.

More disappointment out of Buffalo sports... The Bills decided not to use the franchise tag on star player Jarius Byrd, after using on him last year. If Byrd signs elsewhere as a free agent Buffalo will get nothing for him.
Also, the Sabres lost last night to the Dallas Stars coached by former Buffalo coach Lindy Ruff. Wease and John love Sabres coach Ted Nolan, and can't figure out why so many people don't like him.
Controversial Seahawk star Richard Sherman is in the news again for saying that the NFL's ban of the N word is ridiculous, and that it'll be impossible to enforce.
During the Oscars the other night Ellen took a "selfie" with a bunch of A list movie stars that got retweeted 2 million times. Radio and TV shows across the country copied the idea, and the NY Post did a story about it. Somehow they picked the good looking crew on The Wease Show to include in the piece.

Prankster Jack Vale convinces colonoscopy patients that some strange objects have been found in their colons in this hilarious prank video with a serious message.
Colon cancer is largely preventable when detected early. The video applauds those people who have had a colonoscopy and dispels the fears of getting tested for the highly preventable disease.
This leads to talking about stuff the guys in "Jackass" do, and we'll be asking Steve-O about when he's in studio with us later this week.
Also, it seems that Marianne knows the guy that robbed a bank earlier this week. I guess the prize money he got for being one of the funniest guys in Rochester wasn't enough to live on.
John Travolta App
A new app lets you do to your name what John Travolta did to Idina Menzel's name during the Oscars, where he read her name as Adele Dazeem. Get your "Adele Dazeem Name" HERE.
Billy has a theory that because Travolta is dyslexic, and Idina Menzel is an unusual name, he couldn't do the normal workarounds in his head that he would normally do.
It's time for Mr. Skin's annual salute to the Best Nudity Of The Year... The Skinatomy Awards!!

One Step Closer To Henrietta Casino
The possibility of a casino in the Rochester area is the story that keeps getting bigger. Yesterday it was announced that the Seneca Gaming Corp. acquired 32 acres of land in Henrietta, hoping to put gaming there in the near future. Callers to the future express positives and negatives about the situation, but we still can't find a member of the "No More Casinos Coalition" organization to talk to us.
We do get an interesting call from Ryan at Batavia Downs to talk about the challenges his business faces in the future. Would the addition of sports betting help save OTB? It's something to consider.
Lies About Casual Sex
Somehow, casual sex gets a bad rap. Most of the negative attitudes about having a “bit of summer cabbage” with people you’re not in a relationship with come from lies.
Here are some of the biggest lies out there about casual sex:
Casual Sex Spreads Disease -- Casual sex doesn’t spread disease. Unprotected sex does. Until you get to really know a girl, you should wear a condom, whether you happen to be calling her your girlfriend or not.
Sex Between Committed People Is Better -- There are plenty of married couples having terrible sex. At least, that’s what my friends tell me.
Casual Sex Is Emotionless -- Just because you’re not committed to the person doesn’t mean you’re not connected to the person.
Casual Sex Is “Wrong” -- What’s the big deal if it’s healthy, consensual, and mutually beneficial?
Debating these lies leads to Wease, Marianne, and Pauly telling some of their favorite sex stories that spring to mind.

Visual Bucket List
12-year-old New Zealander Louis Corbett has Retinitis Pigmentosa -- a progressive disorder that deteriorates vision over a course of decades – resulting in blindness.
Sadly, his two older brothers have the same disorder.
However Louis has an accelerated case and his vision will end much, much sooner. So he’s headed on an international sightseeing tour -- attempting to check off an ocular bucket list in a matter of weeks.
So far Louie has picked Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, the Empire State Building, Googleheadquarters and most shockingly, a Boston Celtics game on March 5th.
What, no strip club?
Fundraising efforts on social media raised more than $25,000 to fund the trip -- also catching the attention of the owner of the Boston Celtics, who promises to make the Celtics game on a memory to last a lifetime.
Wease talks about wanting to take Sammy to a strip club, and doesn't understand why he can't.
Wease says every place this kid wants to go is boring... he should've consulted.
