We start the morning talking about the big news in town… the trial of Clayton Whittemore, who is accused of killing his girlfriend Alex Kogut in Brockport last year. There are recordings of phone calls Whittemore made to the police that make it seemed pretty cut and dried.
Pauly makes a great point... we should also feel sorry for Clayton's mother, who went to court to support her son.
Wease Vs. Doreen
Doreen gave Wease one chore yesterday... get directions to Sammy and Lucy's track meet in Rush Henrietta. No problem right? Well, Wease got lost, but insisted he was going the right way. They got there just in time to see Sammy eating a Sno Cone. Doreen calls in to blame herself, saying she should have just gotten the directions herself, and defends the fact that she is controlling because when she puts Wease in charge of stuff things don't go right.
Tools With Sports
Wease watched a whole baseball game last night, as the Mets beat the Yankees 9-7 in the Subway Series last night.
A California company is in Western NY to look for a spot for a new Bills stadium. For a lot less money we'll drive around looking for places... look, there's a cornfield in Victor.
Donald Sterling keeps sticking his foot in his mouth. He was interviewed by Anderson Cooper where he bashes Magic Johnson, compares blacks and Jews, calls Anderson Cooper a racist, and makes other dumb comments.
The opening story may change Redneck News and The Times of Wayne County... Senator Joe Robach is supporting a bill which would prevent the release of mugshots until the accused is convicted. Seems smart to us.

When In Laws Attack
Did you see the video of the elevator scuffle between Beyonce's sister Solange and Jay Z? We're wondering what set of Solange... sibling rivalry? Jealousy?
We think it's smart that the bodyguard stopped the elevator so that the situation wouldn't spill out into public (although it didn't stopm TMZ from getting video). It's also interesting that Beyonce just stood back and didn't get involved.
Doug With News
On the phone with Bunny Ranch owner Dennis Hof who tells us about the fun he's having at his brothel the morning, and talks about the Donald Sterling situation. He says that he has NBA players that frequents his establishment, and has banned Sterling out of respect... not that the Clipper owner has ever been there, but now he can't go even if he wants.
Radio legend Casey Kasem is missing. Check out this creepy animated version of the situation...
Michael Sam Bashing
We talk about the negative reaction to gay NFL draft pick Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend, and people defending Sam.
Former Ole Miss guard Marshall Henderson appeared to not be a fan of Michael Sam or ESPN’s coverage of the first gay football player being drafted into the NFL... Because yesterday, Henderson -- who’s not expected to be picked in this year’s NBA draft -- chimed in to let his opinion fly in a series of tweets:
"Boycotting sportscenter til this michael sam nasty [expletive, expletive] is off .... My brothers are 7 and 11 and saw that!!! #SICKENING"
After a flurry of backlash, Henderson sent another tweet less than an hour later saying:
"I'm sorry, but I DO NOT AGREE WHATSOEVER that should be shown to where innocent eyes can see!!!"
And then, when the backlash really kicked in, he appeared to fire off this excuse to save his own ass.
“One of my best friends, WHO IS GAY, is about to graduate in psychology, asked me to say these things so he can have responses ... TBC”
You see, his derogatory tweets about Michael Sam were meant as a project to gather information for a friend -- who is deciding whether to tell family and friends about his sexual orientation.
Marshal told ESPN, "What better way to get research and feedback than to do it like I did," he added. "Everything I did is a psychologist and educator's dream."
Wease believes the explanation, and is giving him the benefit of the doubt.
