Yesterday Meb Keflezighi became the first U.S. man to win the Boston Marathon since 1983. The braniacs on the Wease Show try and do the math to figure out how fast Meb was running… Wease’s math leads him to believe that he runs as fast as a world class athlete. He’s wrong.
Congrats to the local participants of the Boston Marathon including Jeff Eggleston, who finished 8th overall, and Jason "J-Mac" McElwain who finished in under 3 hours. We'll be speaking to J-Mac at 8am.
Human trafficking in baseball? Sounds like it when you read the story of Dodgers star Yasiel Puig, whose journey to the big leagues may have included illegal payments, Mexican drug lords, death threats, and other unsavory things.
We also talk some baseball, best announcers, homerun calls, and how Pauly's dad does his own announcing while watching Indians games.

The Ontario County Sheriff’s Office reported the arrest on Friday ( 4/ 11) of Karen Keese age 48, of West Main Street in the Village of Palmyra.
It is alleged that Keese was evicted from an apartment in the Town of Victor. She allegedly left four cats and an aquarium with goldfish in “ green” water behind, after the power was turned off. Police reported the animals were living in a freezing cold apartment with no food, or water. Feces was found coating the bathtub area.
Keese was charged with four counts each of Neglect to Animals, Animal Abandonment and Failure to Provide for Animals.
She was arraigned in Victor Court and remanded to the Ontario County Jail on $1000 cash/$2000 bond to reappear in Victor Town Court at a later date.
A Miami woman took fetish pornography to a disturbing extreme, police say — repeatedly decapitating live chickens and killing rabbits while engaging in sex acts during the filming of an animal torture video.
Sara Zamora, 28, was arrested Friday on eight felony counts of animal cruelty for her feature role in a video called “SOS Barn” that a Miami-Dade police arrest report described in gory, stomach-turning detail.
“The chicken is enduring extreme pain and suffering during this process,” according to the arrest report.
The video clips — filmed for a twisted animal torture genre called “crush” — depicted her and other porn actresses “torturing and killing a wide variety of animals, including chickens, rabbits and more for the sexual gratification of its viewers,”

The story of a local man on trial for killing a woman while driving drunk leads to a discussion of the laws regarding having to take a breathalyzer, and do field sobriety tests (or as Marianne calls them, "drinking games".
We speak to Jason "J-Mac" McElwain about running in the Boston Marathon, the atmosphere, the training, the positive way he represents people with autism (and Rochestarians in general).
This leads to a discussion of running in general, and if it's actually good for you. We say no.
We're curious about a couple local issues... we'll start with the problems at The Main Street Armory. On Sunday night there was a fight after a reggae concert there. Wease is disappointed in this because to him reggae is the music of peace, love, and hippies smoking dope. Have times changed? Is the facility more prone to problems for some reason? Some listeners blame race, but we don't think that's the case. Rochester police said there have been 43 calls for service at the Armory and seven arrests since the first of the year.
The other local issue is businesses on Monroe Ave. that are unhappy that a change in the Inner Loop will lessen the traffic to their stores. Wease doesn't think this is the case... that the plan for a more pedestrian friendly area will help the businesses.
Have you heard of the new powdered alcohol, being called Palcohol. Can it be sprinkled on food? On doughnuts? Put in Pixie Stix? Snorted? The possibilities have the alcohol lovers on the show reeling. This leads to a caller reminiscing about a Jerry Lewis movie where Jerry was an astronaut with Russian cosmonauts sharing powdered vodka in space. Billy remembers seeing this movie on TV when he was a little kid, and female lead Connie Stevens being his first celebrity crush.
Wu-Tang Clan-affiliated rapper Andre Johnson was reportedly high on PCP when he sliced off his penis with a kitchen knife and jumped off a second-story balcony in Los Angeles this week.
E! Online reports that Johnson used a serrated steak knife to tear off his genitalia before leaping outside onto the North Hollywood balcony just before 1 a.m. Wednesday.
Police called to the apartment reportedly attempted to coax Johnson — who raps under the name Christ Bearer — to come down.
At that moment, he allegedly said "OK," before plunging to the sidewalk.
This leads to discussion of the famous John Wayne Bobbitt situation, and the porn movie he made after his penis was reattached.
