random thoughts for thursday september 2nd, 2010


1.  happy birthday wishes going out to tennis legend JIMMY CONNORS…he is 58 today….i used to LOVE watching him play tennis when i was younger…especially when he played hothead JOHN MCENROE….here’s a couple of pictures of JIMMY CONNORS in the early days…the first one is with CHRIS EVERT….

and here’s JIMMY CONNORS today on his 58th birthday…


it seems like all the rockers, and a few of us “popsters” who liked pop music had this album by KISS…

it was called “ROCK AND ROLL OVER”, and featured the KISS classic “HARD LUCK WOMAN.”  here’s a video of the song….


and as an added feature, here’s my favorite KISS song, “BETH.”  KISS fans were not very happy about this song, as they felt that KISS “sold out” by having a ‘pop’ sounding song….they’re crazy…this was one amazing song…


3.  i have always been amazed that when you’re mourning the loss of a loved one, you end up laughing and having excellent quality time.  last night, all five of us kids gathered at MOM AND DAD’S house in PIERPONT, and celebrated GRANDPA’S life….we had a blast….great meal…great stories….funny moments…..lots of fun…i i know that GRANDPA would have loved last night, and i’m sure he was watching over us….

4.  we ended up on MOM AND DAD’S porch telling ghost stories last night…everybody had scary stuff to tell about things that happened in our life.  we had a “possessed” CHARLIE MCCARTHY” ventriliquist doll in our houses…weird things, and scary things happened until we got rid of it…..last night, my brother was talking about some friends who saw a guy on the road, stopped to help him, but the guy didn’t say anything.  then as they were speeding off rather quickly, the guy began running right beside the car, and then disappeared….they figured the guy was running 55 mph or faster…..no human can do that….

5.  CONGRATS to our sports guru, JOSH BERTACCINI….as you probably remember, he’s one of FOUR that are still in the running for a MAJOR RADIO SHOW THAT WILL RUN ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND ACROSS THE WORLD…what a cool deal…guess what?  it’s down to TWO, and JOSH IS IN THE FINALS…wow…he will find out next week if he’s the winner…that would be so awesome…..

6.  last night i had my SECOND NFL DRAFT of the week…the first one was a “family league”, last night was the “hub city radio” league….i feel pretty good about both teams, but that always happens until the season starts and ALL MY PLAYERS SUCK…ha ha….i have PEYTON MANNING quarterbacking both teams, so i should be SOLID at qb….

7.  this is weird…a CALIFORNIA golfer struck a rock that sparked a 12 ACRE FIRE…wow….there’s hasn’t been that destructive of a drive since TIGER WOODS tried to leave his house on thanksgiving…

8.  CALIFORNIA officials are trying to reinstate state executions…they plan to save money by just serving the inmates eggs….

9.  last weekend SERBIA hosted the “world testicle cooking contest.”  i don’t know…i think that you would have to be nuts to miss that.

10.  a man in ENGLAND was hospitalized with severe burns after he blew up his bathroom while trying to kill a spider with an aerosol can…..dummy..he should have called a SWAT TEAM….(get it?)

11.  PARIS HILTON said that she thought the bag of cocaine that police found in her purse was CHEWING GUM…WOW…IDIOT….what the heck? did she go to a parade where LINDSAY LOHAN was throwing candy?

12.  CHILE is set to begin rescuing their miners….experts say that they could be trapped for SEVERAL MONTHS….i can’t imagine being trapped in a small area for months…now if you would excuse me, i’ll be watching the NFL in my “man cave” until JANUARY…


A completely inebriated man was stumbling down the street with one foot on the curb and one foot in the gutter. A cop pulled up and said, “I’ve got to take you in, pal. You’re obviously drunk.”

Our wasted friend asked, “Officer, are ya absolutely sure I’m drunk?”

“Yeah, buddy, I’m sure,” said the copper. “Let’s go.”

Breathing a sigh of relief, the wino said, “Thank goodness, I thought I was crippled.”
