HALLOWEEN PARTY

WOLF

 

Going to The Wolf’s Halloween Howl?  Here are The Top Signs You’re at a Bad Halloween Party.

You compliment a woman on her pregnant prostitute costume and she replies, “What costume?”

 

So as not to hurt anyone’s feelings, they let the guy with the cold sore bob for apples.

The only “naughty” costume is a slutty Zach Galifianakis.

Renee Zellweger just burst into tears when someone asked her to take off her terrifying rubber mask.

 

 

The body lying in the fake casket isn’t a dummy . . . it’s Casey Kasem!

 

 

The scary music playing is a continuous loop of Justin Bieber.

 

LAST MINUTE COUPLES COSTUMES…

It’s Halloween!  If you slacked off and need to buy a last-minute couples costume, here are six ideas that won’t be a total waste of money . . . since you can also use them to spice things up the BEDROOM throughout the year . . .

 

 

1.  Hef and a bunny playmate.

 

 

2.  Policewoman and criminal.

 

 

3.  Nurse and patient.

Halloween Make-Up Tutorials Are Huge on YouTube Right Now

 

 

Videos on how to do your Halloween make-up have been HUGE online this year.  The final 2014 stats aren’t out yet.  But according to Google, three-and-a-half times more people watched them last year than in 2012.

 

If you need any help tonight, “Glamour” magazine posted a list of some of the best tutorials out there.  (Check it out here.)

 

And a website called NeonTommy.com posted a few other ones, including how to do your make-up if you’re Elsa from “Frozen”(Check out the list here.)

 

A make-up artist named Carli Bybel has also done a bunch that are really good, including ones for Jessica Rabbit, and Daenerys Targaryen from “Game of Thrones”.

 

 

Or just search YouTube for whatever you’re going as, plus the phrase “make-up tutorial”.  You can find them for pretty much any costume now.

 

 

 

A Super Low-Budget, Shot-for-Shot Remake of the “Ghostbusters” Trailer

 

 

A bunch of middle school kids made a shot-for-shot remake of the “Ghostbusters” trailer.  They used the real audio, and mouthed all the words.  And it’s SUPER low-budget, which is why it’s great.

 

 

(Search for “Middle School Ghostbusters Trailer.”  You can watch a side-by-side comparison with the real trailer here.)

 

 

(There’s also a video from last year making the rounds again . . . of a squirrel carving a pumpkin.  Whoever made it must have spread something delicious where they wanted it to chew, because it makes two eyes, a nose, and a mouth.)

 

 

 

 A Guy Who’d Never Played Basketball Hit a Half-Court Shot for $10,000

 

 

On Monday, a 23-year-old student named Gustavo Tamayo was at a basketball game at Bryan College in Dayton, Tennessee.  And he had a chance to win $10,000 if he made four shots:  A lay-up, free throw, three-pointer, and one from half court.

 

 

Which is tough for anyone.  But more so for Gustavo, because he’d never PLAYED basketball before.  But somehow, he DID IT.  Then people in the stands rushed the court and lifted him up on their shoulders.

 

 

(Search for “Last-Second $10,000 Shot Made.”  There’s another angle of it here.)

FRIDAY FUN FACTS…

 

Here are some random facts for you . . .

 

ANDRE

1.  Andre the Giant was drafted into the French army in 1965, but couldn’t enlist because they didn’t have shoes that were big enough, bunks that were long enough, or trenches that were deep enough.

 

 

2.  The largest Japanese population outside of Japan is in Brazil.  There are at least 1.5 million Japanese people in Brazil . . . the first Japanese people moved there in the early 1900s for work and future generations have stayed.

 

 

3.  Scratching makes you itch worse because it causes your brain to release serotonin, which increases the sensations all over your body . . . including the sensation of the itch.

 

 

4.  The only English word that ends with the letters “mt” is “dreamt.”

 

 

5.  More chocolate is sold at Brussels National Airport in Belgium than any other place in the world.

A Championship Blog Post!

BUMGARNER

The San Francisco Giants held onto a 3 to 2 lead in the bottom of the 9th inning to beat the Kansas City Royals and become the 2014 World Series Champs.

 

The Royals had a man on third with two outs, but the game ended when SALVADOR PEREZ popped out in foul territory.

 

Giants pitcher MADISON BUMGARNER pitched five innings in relief to close out Game 7, with just two days’ rest after pitching a shutout complete game on Sunday.

 

Bumgarner’s final World Series line sparkles: 2-0 with a save and a 0.43 earned run average, with nine hits, one run, one walk and 17 strikeouts in 21 innings. Add in 15 scoreless innings in earlier victories, against Texas in 2010 and Detroit in 2012, and you get a 0.25 E.R.A. that ranks as the best in World Series history, minimum 25 innings.

 

This is the Giants’ third championship in five years.

 

Oh, and they’re also the first team since the 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates to win Game 7 of the World Series on the road.  The home team had won the NINE Game 7s in between.

SUITSY

 

It doesn’t happen often, but every once in a while you see something flat-out BRILLIANT on a crowdfunding website.  This is one of those times.

A guy in San Francisco has created a product called the Suitsy . . . and it could change business meetings, weddings, and funerals forever.  The Suitsy is a ONESIE that LOOKS like a business suit, but FEELS like wearing pajamas.

You slip it on and zip it up using a zipper hidden behind the fake buttons on the shirt.  The cuffs are fake and adjustable, and the WAIST is adjustable too.  Based on the photos, it really does look like a wool suit instead of pajamas.

You can even put on a real tie and pass it off as an actual suit.

The Suitsy is on the crowdfunding site Betabrand right now.  It’ll cost you $302.40 to fund it and get one . . . they’ll be shipping in May.  (Betabrand

Canseco Gets Injured Shooting Up!

Jose Canseco Shot Off His Left Middle Finger While Cleaning His Gun 

 

JOSE CANSECO shot off his left middle finger while cleaning a handgun in his house.  Jose’s fiancée Leila Knight was there when it happened.  She says he was cleaning the gun at his kitchen table, and he didn’t know it was loaded.

She told the L.A. Times, quote, “I heard the gun go off and saw his middle finger hanging by a string.  It will either have to be amputated or have full reconstruction surgery.”

 

As of last night Jose was in surgery, and doctors were going to try to do as much as possible.  But the bullet ripped through the bottom part of his finger, so even under the best circumstances, he’ll never have full use of it again.

The Boston Bruins Cheered Up Sick Kids by Dressing as “Frozen” Characters for Halloween . . . Including Elsa and Anna

The Boston Bruins cheered up a bunch of sick kids at Boston Children’s Hospital on Monday, by dressing up as characters from “Frozen” for Halloween . . . including the FEMALE characters.

Defenceman named DOUGIE HAMILTON was Elsa, and forward MATT FRASER dressed up as Anna.  Hamilton is 6-foot-5 . . . probably NOT the best Elsa ever . . . and last year he went as a 6-foot-5 BABY.  But apparently the kids loved it.

Four other players were also with them, dressed as Hans, Kristoff, Olaf, and the reindeer Sven.  And they all walked around the hospital singing “Let It Go”.

The guy in the Olaf costume was defenceman TOREY KRUG, who said he knows all the lyrics, because he’s seen the movie DOZENS of times with his niece.  Hamilton also said he’s a fan, and that he’s NOT ashamed to admit it.

LADIES IT’S TIME TO HELP OUT THE MEN…

I’m not sure single men needed another reason to have sex with as many women as possible, but here you go.

A new study of 3,200 men out of the University of Montreal found that men who’ve had sex with at least 20 different women have a significantly lower risk of prostate cancer.

Men who’ve had sex with at least 20 women cut their risk of developing prostate cancer by 28%, and were 19% less likely to get the most aggressive form of prostate cancer.

 

The researchers think it’s because men who are that active are having the most sex of anyone . . . even more than married guys.

 

There have been links in the past that found climaxing during sex helps fight prostate cancer . . . and the dudes having sex with a bunch of different women are certainly taking care of that.

AND NOW A MESSAGE FROM THE REGINA RAMS ALUMNI:

Good morning Ram Family.

This Saturday 2pm at Mosaic Stadium is a huge game against Alberta Golden Bears. The Rams win and they will be in the playoffs. This team is resilient and has been playing exciting football as of late. This would also be the last game that Frank McCrystal will be patrolling the sidelines at Mosaic Stadium. “The Slick” deserves to go out with a bang. We are hoping all alumni and anybody involved with the program over the last 31 years come out and support the Rams Saturday afternoon.

There is also an outside chance with a Rams win they could have 3rd place. This would get a playoff game in Saskatoon against the Huskies. :)))

After the game we have secured space at the Four Seasons sports bar for all of us to gather – 6pm. Everybody is welcome. Hope to see all you there.

Go Rams Go!!!

The Durant Arms Race…

DURANT

 

Riders QB Darian Durant was at the Monday Night Game in Arlington, Texas last night to watch his brother LB Justin Durant suit up for the the Cowboys. It didn’t end well as Justin tore his bicep and his gone for the season. What a terrible year for the Durant brothers and their arms.

Former Texas star Colt McCoy looked right at home in Dallas. McCoy put Washington at the 40-yard line to set up Kai (kye) Forbath’s field goal in overtime for a 20-17 victory that snapped the Cowboys’ six-game winning streak. McCoy was playing at the home of the Cowboys for the first time since his final college game in his home state.

The Cowboys didn’t just lose the game — they may have lost quarterback Tony Romo (ROH’-moh). Romo stayed on the ground for several minutes in the third quarter after turning backward and ducking as linebacker Keenan Robinson sacked the Q-B. Romo left the field but came back for a drive in the final two minutes of the fourth and played in overtime as well.

RAMbling Rookie!

medium_Simon_Atlee

 

Rookie running back Atlee Simon was named the Canada West Offensive Player of the Week on Monday after putting forth one of the finest performances in the University of Regina’s history on Saturday, helping the Rams to a critical 56-41 win over No. 9-ranked Manitoba.

 

Simon finished with 24 carries for 154 yards and three touchdowns, including a career-long 45-yard run early in the second quarter that gave the Rams their first major of the game. He also had four catches for 89 yards, most of which came on a 60-yard catch-and-run late in the ball game for his fourth touchdown of the contest.

 

“Atlee did a great job of running the football and catching it coming out of the backfield,” Rams offensive coordinator Bernie Schmidt said. “He’s shown the last two games that he’s going to be the complete player we thought he was when we recruited him, and I think he’s only going to continue building on that performance moving forward.”

 

His 243 all-purpose yards are the most by a U of R player in over four years, while his three touchdown runs equal a school single-game record that Cory Olynick set back in 2002. His four touchdowns scored also equal a U of R single-game mark, a record he now shares with Jason Clermont (twice) and Chad Goldie.

 

Simon is now sixth in Canada West with a total of 419 rushing yards on the season – 275 of which have come in his last two games, his first as the U of R’s starting running back. The Rams (2-5) will have a chance to nail down a playoff spot this Saturday afternoon at home against Alberta (3-4).

 

Saskatchewan safety Mark Ingram (defence) and kick returner Keegan Arnyek (special teams) were also honoured by the conference on Monday. All three will move forward as Canada West’s nominees for the CIS Players of the Week, which will be announced Wednesday.

Idiots In The NFL

SPORT SHORTS

  

 

Some serious boneheadedness went down in the NFL yesterday.

 

 

1.  Rookie Buffalo Bills wide receiver SAMMY WATKINS made a ROOKIE MISTAKE during a game against the New York Jets yesterday.  He caught a pass that very well could have been an 89-yard touchdown reception.

 

But he started celebrating a little early, and got tackled by SAALIM HAKIM at the 5-yard line. No big deal.  The Bills scored a touchdown two plays later, on the way to an easy 43 to 23 win.

 

 

2.  Defensive end LAMARR HOUSTON of the Chicago Bears should have had more perspective.  It was the fourth quarter, and his team was losing to the New England Patriots 48 to 23.  So he really had nothing to celebrate.

But when he sacked backup Patriots QB JIMMY GAROPPOLO, he decided to jump; around like an idiot.  And he BLEW OUT HIS KNEE.  We don’t know the extent of the damage, but he’s having an MRI today. By the way former Alouettes coach Marc Trestman is in trouble in Chicago.

 

3.  JEREMY MACLIN of the Philadelphia Eagles got pushed out of bounds, and ended up taking out the Arizona Cardinals’ Gatorade table.  He wasn’t injured.

 

4.  I really hope this doesn’t catch on:  After a sack yesterday, J.J. WATT of the Houston Texans pretended to take a selfie.

 

–The Pittsburgh Steelers have their first winning streak of the season following Ben Roethlisberger’s ( record-setting performance in a 51-34 win over Indianapolis. Roethlisberger set franchise records with 522 passing yards and six touchdowns, with three TDs coming in the Steelers’ 28-point second quarter. The yardage total was the fourth highest in NFL history and made him the first quarterback to go over 500 passing yards more than once. It was the 1st time in NFL history that 4 QB’s threw for over 400 yds in one day!

– No team in the NFC SOUTH is over .500 and no team in the AFC NORTH is under .500.

At one point in that game on Friday I turned to my son and said there is no way Riders QB Kerry Joseph is 41 yrs old. You know if the Green and White can tighten the screws on defence and special teams I think the Riders can make some noise in the playoffs..

Frank press conference

The U of R Rams kept their playoff hopes alive with a thrilling 56-41 win over Manitoba on Saturday at Mosaic Stadium. Both offences combined for over 1200 yards with the big story being Rams tailback Atlee Simon. The 18 year old running back had 243 combined yards and 4 touchdowns! The Rams (2-5) can qualify for the postseason with a win over Alberta next weekend along with victories by both Calgary and Saskatchewan. The Rams could also qualify for the playoffs with a Calgary loss to Manitoba and a three-point U of R win over Alberta, or a Saskatchewan loss to UBC combined with at least a 15-point win over the Golden Bears. Kickoff Saturday is 2 pm at Mosaic Stadium.

madison bumgarner

– Madison Bumgarner smothered the Kansas City Royals for the second time in a week, pitching a four-hitter that led the San Francisco Giants to a 5-0 victory and a 3-2 World Series lead. Bumgarner struck out eight and walked none in improving to 4-0 in four World Series starts. He has allowed one run in 31 Series innings, an astonishing 0.29 E-R-A. That is World Series record for a pitcher throwing a minimum 20 innings. . For the record, in 1985,  the only time the Royals won the World Series they trailed the Cardinals 3-2 before winning the last 2 at home..

 

–Joe Madden Is a free agent? That is bad break for the Rays. The Cubs should hire him right now.

At one point she yells that Ole Miss football is her LIFE . . . and she hopes the entire LSU team DIES on their bus ride home.  She also slams an open gallon of MILK down on the counter at one point.

(Search for “Ole Miss Fan Girl Loses Mind After Loss to LSU.”  She slams the milk at :22, and really starts to freak out at :40.  WARNING:  F-bombs ahead!)

FOOTBALL FRIDAY!

riders

CFL Friday Night Football concludes with the Calgary Stampeders hosting the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Kickoff is at 7:30 pm with our pregame show on 620 CKRM beginning at 5pm from the 4 Seasons. The last time the Riders won a regular season game at McMahon stadium was August 1, 2009, a span of 6 games. Here are some other game notes:

12 spots in 13 years…This year’s playoff spot is the Riders 12th in the last 13 seasons.

4 straight losses…The Riders have dropped 4 games in a row overall and also their last 3 road games. They haven’t lost 4 straight road games since the end of that miserable 2011 season. Their last 5-game overall winless streak was in July-August 2012.

OPPONENT PTS OFF TURNOVERS…In their first 12 games Saskatchewan was the league leader in fewest points allowed off turnovers with 23 opponents points. Since then over the last 4 games, they have given up 51 points after their 14 turnovers.

Good starts…The Riders have blanked their last 2 opponents in the 1st quarter and allowed only 2 points in the opening 15 minutes in the last 3 games. However, over that span, the 3rd quarter has been a problem as they have been outscored 45-16.

Former Bengals QB Boomer Esiason has been named the first ever commissioner of a kitten football league according to a very important press released from the Hallmark Channel earlier this week. The press release included this picture which shows a kitten looking at a small football.  Esiason will serve as spokesperson for the FFL, which includes a Scouting Combine, draft, season games and playoffs that lead up to the biggest feline showdown in history, “Kitten Bowl II,” premiering Su-purr Bowl Sunday, February 1, 2015.

CYBER SPOTLIGHT

A Guy Gets Trapped in a Bus’s Door After He Tries to Steal a Purse . . . Then Gets Beaten Down by the Bus Driver

 

 

Earlier this month, a guy in Concepcion, Chile boarded a city bus.  When he hopped on, he tried to steal the purse of a woman sitting in one of the front seats.

 

 

He tried to grab the purse and run TWICE . . . but failed miserably.  Then as he tried to jump out, his hand got caught in the bus’s door as it closed and he was trapped inside.

 

 

The driver took off and hit the guy relentlessly with a baseball bat . . . making him CRY.

 

 

This went on for about a minute, and eventually the bus driver pulled over and the guy was arrested.  Lucky for us, it was all caught on the surveillance camera inside the bus.

 

 

(Search for “Bag Thief Battered by Bus Driver“.)

 

WTH?

47-year-old Jonnie Boggess was arrested in Miami, West Virginia on Wednesday, after an animal rights group tipped off police that he’d been having relations with his DOG, a two-year-old female beagle-mix.

It’s not clear how the group KNEW about it.  It’s possible Jonnie’s girlfriend is the one who ratted him out.  Yes, he has a girlfriend . . . or DID.

He eventually admitted it happened while he was drunk . . . and tried to explain to the cops why he thought that LEGALLY, he was in the clear. First of all, he said he was extremely GENTLE in his lovemaking.  He also said he spent a lot of time PETTING the dog afterward, and telling her he loved her very much.

But the main reason he thought it was okay was because the dog is over 40 pounds, and it’s been fixed.  (???)

He was arrested on animal cruelty charges, and released on $5,000 bond.  Apparently the dog is okay, but he won’t be getting her back obviously

 

HOUSEHOLD ACCIDENTS…

Most of us grew up hearing that you should never mix bleach and ammonia, and that’s true.  But there are lots of other common household products that should never come near each other.  Buzzfeed has a good list to keep handy.

 

 

1.  Bleach and vinegar.  Vinegar is a weak acid, and when you add an acid to bleach, it creates toxic chlorine gas.  You could suffer chemical burns to your eyes and lungs.

 

 

2.  Ammonia and bleach.  This is the one we all hear about.  It creates toxic vapors . . . and in a worst-case scenario, it could form liquid hydrazine, which can be explosive.

 

 

3.  Rubbing alcohol and bleach.  It creates chloroform and hydrochloric acid.  And don’t try it for ‘fun’ because you saw someone use chloroform in the movies.  It’s not a prank . . . forcing someone to inhale chloroform could KILL them.

 

 

4.  Hydrogen peroxide and vinegar.  It produces peracetic acid, which is corrosive and can scar the skin, the eyes, and the lining of the throat and lungs.

 

 

5.  Baking soda and vinegar.  It’s not a miracle cleaning formula.  Both of them work great if you use them separately.  But mix them together and you end up with WATER.  Vinegar is an acid and baking soda is a base, so they neutralize each other.

 

 

 

6.  Two different battery brands.  You could cause a battery to leak, and ruin your stuff.  Different brands will run out at different times, so one battery is dead and the other is still producing electricity.  And that can lead to a corrosive leak.

 

 

7.  Medicine and grapefruit juice.  Drinking grapefruit juice can cause your body to absorb some drugs at a higher rate.  So the regular prescribed dose could turn into an OVERDOSE.

 

 

8.  Tylenol and alcohol.  It leads to PERMANENT LIVER DAMAGE.  You should NEVER take Tylenol for a hangover.  It could cause liver failure, and 200 people DIE every year from doing it.

 

 

9.  Red Bull and milk.  Not that anyone would ever do this.  But Red Bull causes milk to curdle almost instantly.  If that happened in your stomach, you might be in for some serious vomiting.

 

 

10.  Ibuprofen and alcohol.  Doing this can tear the lining of your stomach, or give you ulcers.

 

 

11.  Antibiotics and dairy products.  The calcium in dairy products can decrease the absorption of the antibiotics, making them less effective.  You can still eat dairy while you’re on antibiotics, but not within a few hours of taking them.

Now That’s A Tip!

USP MLB: WORLD SERIES-SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS AT KANS S BBO USA MO

 

WADE DAVIS is a relief pitcher for the Kansas City Royals, and he’s been LIGHTS OUT in the eighth inning this year.  But his wife Katelyn is in the news right now too . . . for being a VERY good tipper. Before Game One of the World Series on Tuesday, Katelyn and some friends were at a restaurant just south of Kansas City called Rock & Brews.  And their waiter was a guy named Ryan O’Connor, who looks to be in his 20s. And after Ryan dropped off their check, he started to walk away.  But then Katelyn called him back . . . and asked if, instead of a tip, he’d like to have a free TICKET to the game that night. Ryan’s manager ended up giving him the rest of the night off so he could go.  We’re not sure where his seats were, but he sat with Katelyn and her family.  So I assume they were VERY good seats. According to the website SeatGeek, the average World Series ticket is going for $950.  And really GOOD seats have been going for as much as SIX GRAND. Unfortunately for Ryan, the Royals ended up losing Game One.  But he talked to a reporter at the game, and it sounded like he was having a pretty good time anyway.  (KMBC / Yahoo)

 

BALLSY’S CYBER SPOTLIGHT….

A Boxer Goes Nuts on a Referee After He Loses a Match

 

 

At the European Youth Boxing Championship in Zagreb, Croatia, two guys named Vido Loncar and Algirdas Baniulis were competing against each other in a match.

Loncar ended up losing the match . . . and he didn’t take it too well.  After it ended, he walked over to the referee and beat the CRAP out of him.

First he knocked the guy to the ground . . . and then he just kept punching the poor guy repeatedly.

Now the International Boxing Association has banned Loncar and his coaches for life.

(Search for “Boxer Vido Loncar Attacks Referee After Losing Fight.”  He lays into the guy at 1:13.  You can see another angle here.)

 

 

Doggie Style….

 

According to a new survey of 2,000 dog owners, people with PUGS earn the most money, and they’re also the most likely to be happily married.  Here are seven more things the survey found.

 

 

1.  Chihuahua owners give their dogs the most attention.

 

2.  People with Dalmatians spend the most money on them.  And randomly, they’re also the most likely to drive a sports car.

 

3.  People with golden retrievers are the best educated.

 

4.  People with Yorkshire terriers are the happiest overall.

 

5.  People with Labradors are the most likely to be single.

 

6.  People with bulldogs tend to be in bad relationships they want OUT of.

 

7.  People with French bulldogs are more likely to believe their dog “knows what they’re thinking” than other dog owners.

 

renee zellweger

Yesterday on “The View”, ROSIE O’DONNELL asked the question we’ve all been dying to ask:  Are we supposed to pretend we don’t know RENEE ZELLWEGER did something to her face?

 

She said, quote, “If somebody who is a public figure drastically changes their appearance so that they’re unrecognizable, are we as a society supposed to pretend we don’t see it?

 

(I’m with Rosie on this.  There’s been such a backlash against people simply for mentioning that Renee Zellweger suddenly looks a lot different.  And I don’t care what anybody says:  She does look A LOT different.   Why should we have to dance around it in the name of political correctness?  Man I wish Joan Rivers was still with us, because she would have just let it rip, and she would have put all these people being overly-sensitive on Renee’s behalf in their place. After all Joan was one of the all-time plastic surgery disasters herself!)

 

TIDBITS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

 

A 26-year-old woman in China recently got over a bad break-up . . . by sitting at Kentucky Fried Chicken, stuffing her face for a WEEK STRAIGHT.  She says she couldn’t go to her apartment, because it was filled with stuff that reminded her of her ex.  And she needed time to think, so she even called in sick to WORK.

 

Two guys dressed as evil clowns were working at a haunted house in Illinois earlier this month.  And one just got arrested for battery . . . after he pretended to attack a woman and her 17-year-old daughter, while threatening them with a VIBRATING SEX TOY.  The woman is suing for negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

 

A guy in Tennessee tried to steal some stuff from a sporting goods store last Thursday.  But one of the employees runs hundred-mile ULTRA-MARATHONS.  So he just chased after the guy until he ran out of breath and gave up.

 

Mosquitos carrying yellow fever were found in L.A.:

. . . So, to recap:  Texas is stuck with Ebola.  California’s stuck with yellow fever.  And worst of all, our iPhones are stuck with a U2 album.

Renee..What Have You Done?

 

RENEE ZELLWEGER attended an event on Monday night looking like . . . ANYONE BUT RENEE ZELLWEGER.  She has had something done to her face, to the point where she doesn’t even look like herself.  For one thing, her signature SQUINTY EYES seem to be a thing of the past.

 

OZZY and SHARON OSBOURNE are worth around $236 MILLION.  Yet their daughter KELLY thinks they’ll need some financial help in their retirement.  She says, quote, “My dream is to make enough money doing what I love so that my parents never have to work again and I can look after them.”

 

A company has invented a HOVERBOARD like the one MICHAEL J. FOX rides in “Back to the Future 2″ . . . but it has its drawbacks.  It can only hover over a special metallic surface, the battery life is A FEW MINUTES and it only hovers three-quarters of an inch above the ground.  Also, it’s really noisy..Still, it hovers . . . and you can actually ride it.  It’s called the Hendo Hoverboard.  (Check it out here.  And here’s the hoverboard scene from “Back to the Future 2″.)

WILL THE RAMS DIG DEEP FOR THEIR COACH?

 

Frank press conference

It has been a gut wrenching season so far for the University of Regina Rams. The club has dropped 5  games in a row including last week’s crippling 33-32 defeat in Vancouver. In fact , three of their five losses, have been by a combined 8 points.  I’m hoping the “Boys in The Horns” will battle hard right until the final whistle for their outgoing coach Frank McCrystal. A lot of people love the fact McCrystal appears to be leaving football without a playoff berth but I predict this team will play it’s finest football of the season beginning this Saturday.  The Rams (1-5) aren’t mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, but will need to defeat both Manitoba and Alberta in Week 7 and Week 8 to have a chance at qualifying for the postseason. Both of those games are at home, Our coverage of  Saturday’s game  begins with the pre-game show at 1:45 on 620 CKRM…

One other note…I’ve always said going to a CIS game is like watching the Stars of Tomorrow, Today. So with that in mind make sure you get out to Mosaic to watch a top 3 CFL prospect by the name of Addison Richards. This 6’5 215 lb receiver has 774 receiving yards on the season, already the fourth most in University of Regina history with two games still left on the schedule. Richards is definitely worth the price of admission.

BALLSY’S SPORTS SHORTS…

With World Series underway I thought we’d check out some baseball fun facts:

MLB

The average career span of an MLB ball is 6 pitches..

 

In the average baseball game, there are 300,000 to 1 odds that a fan will get hit with a baseball.

 

13 years after Babe Ruth died, Roger Maris broke his home run record. 13 years after Maris died, Mark McGwire broke his record..

 

Between 2 and 3 jockeys are killed each year. That’s about how many baseball players have died in baseball’s entire professional history.

 

AND NOW SOME OTHER SPORTS SHORTS….

we are marshall

MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY says that part of the reason he became a Washington Redskins fan as a kid in Texas is because when he’d watch Westerns, he always rooted for the Indians.  And when asked if he thought the name was offensive, he didn’t really say . . . although he wishes it wouldn’t change.  He adds, quote, “I dig it.  It gives me a little fire and some oomph.”  He explains, quote, “What interests me is how quickly it got pushed into the social consciousness.  We were all fine with it since the 1930s, and all of a sudden we go, ‘No, gotta change it’?

YOU’RE KILLING IT..AND YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW IT!

 

Here are 10 things you’re doing that might be SHORTENING your life.  Happy Wednesday!

 

 

1.  You’re single.  Studies show that being single for long periods of time could shave a decade off your lifespan.

 

 

2.  You sit for long periods of time.  Researchers found that if you sit for over three hours a day, you’re cutting a few years off your lifespan.  And that ratio just increases the more hours you spend sitting.

sitting

 

3.  You don’t have a lot of friends.  People with weak social connections die at higher rates.  Experts found that being lonely can be as bad for your health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day.

 

 

And elderly people with a TON of friends are 22% less likely to go.

 

 

4.  You watch a lot of TV.   This is bad news for binge-watchers over age 25.  Every hour of TV you watch supposedly reduces your lifespan by 21 minutes.  Go ahead and do the math . . . if that’s not too depressing.

 

 

5.  You eat unhealthy.  Obviously.  But you might not know that eating red meat can shorten your life by 20% if you eat extra portions.

 

 

6.  You’re unemployed.  Not having a job can increase your risk of premature death by 63%.

 

 

7.  You don’t get the big O enough.  Basically, if you’re not getting any, you’re 50% more likely to die than the people who are getting lucky.

 

workers

8.  You put up with annoying co-workers.  Luckily, whether or not your BOSS supports you is NOT a factor in your mortality.  But people with strong social support at work from their OTHER co-workers tend to live longer.

 

 

9.  Your sleep is messed up.  If you get less than five hours or more than NINE hours, your life expectancy decreases.

10.  You fear death.  The fear of a shortened lifespan is called “thanatophobia” . . . and it can actually CAUSE you to have a shortened lifespan.

 

QUOTE OF THE DAY: The key ingredient to any kind of happiness or success is to never give less than your best.

 

 

 

 

Science and Boobs..I know I was shocked too!

 

 

The kind of boobs that you like can tell a lot about you . . . and science can prove it.  Salon.com put together a list of seven supposedly “scientific” facts about breasts.  Check ‘em out . . .

 

 

1.  The amount of money you have dictates the kind of boobs you like.  If you’re poor, you want busty cleavage.  But if you’re rich, you like them small.  Doctors think a hefty rack signals “fat reserves,” which appeals to guys with meager incomes.

 

2.  Hungry men also like an ample chest.  But if you’re full, you want a smaller chest.  So your boob preference can actually fluctuate over the course of a meal.

 

 

3.  If you don’t want kids, you ALSO don’t want a woman with huge cans.  You want to steer clear of anything that reminds you of breastfeeding or fertility.  But if you’re into big breasts, it’s probably because you want to reproduce.

 

 

 

4.  Sexist men prefer humongous boobs.  No surprise there.  In fact, studies show that the size of a guy’s sexism roughly equates to his preference in breast size.  And men who like giant breasts are the most hostile toward women.

 

 

5.  Men who like small breasts want a submissive woman.  Scientists claim men find flat-chested women, quote, “less threatening.”  Small-chested ladies also might remind men of their “first love.”  (Which is kind of sick when you think about it.)

 

 

6.  Women with implants are three times more likely to KILL themselves than other people.  But not until 10 years after they’ve had the surgery.  No one knows why, but it could be that women who want implants in the first place are prone to suicide.

 

 

7.  Bras actually cause breasts to sag.  Studies show that the restrictive material in bras prevents muscle development . . . so breasts start to DROOP.

 

THE CYBER SPOTLIGHT

 

1.  A Halloween Light Show Set to Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”

 

 

There’s a house in Naperville, Illinois that does one of those music-synced Halloween light shows every year.  Last year, it was set to AWOLNATION’s “Sail”(Naperville is a suburb of Chicago.)

 

 

This year, they did the light show to QUEEN’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” . . . and it’s pretty awesome.  (Search for “Halloween 2014 Light Show. Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody.  Thomas Halloween House, Naperville IL“.)

 

 

 

2.  A Guy Dances Weirdly After He Gets Two Good Spins on “The Price Is Right”

 

 

Unless you’re unemployed or a 90-year-old woman, you probably didn’t catch “The Price Is Right” yesterday, and that’s a shame.

 

 

A contestant named Eliot got two really great spins on the wheel, which totaled to about $26,000 in prize money.  To celebrate, Eliot did weird dances where he appeared to hump both the ground and the air around him.

 

 

On top of the 26-grand, Eliot also ended up winning an 11-night cruise to Tahiti, and a Mitsubishi Mirage.

 

 

(Search for “The Price Is Right Ground Humping Wheel Celebration“.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

3.  Why Is This Washington Redskins Fan Holding a Crow?

 

 

At the Washington Redskins and Tennessee Titans game on Sunday, there was a Redskins fan in the audience pulling something you’d probably only see on “Game of Thrones”.

 

 

She was sitting in the stands, holding a CROW . . . and no one knows why.  But she seemed to enjoy petting it and showing it off to the people around her.  Someone posted a 15-second video of it on YouTube.

Game 1 of the World Series goes tonight when Kansas City hosts San Francisco at Kauffman Stadium.

San Fran is trying to become the first N-L team to win three World Series titles in a five-year span since the St. Louis Cardinals of 1943-46.

Kansas City’s only title came in 1985. (To me, baseball is more like “America’s favorite nap time.”)

39 years ago . . . in 1975 – In Game 6 of the World Series, in the bottom of the 12th inning, Boston Red Sox catching chubby CARLTON FISK hit a ball deep to left field and “willed” it fair for the game-winning home run.  But the Cincinnati Reds beat the Red Sox in Game 7.

 

WEIRD THINGS BANNED IN OTHER COUNTRIES….

If you think we’ve got too many laws in THIS country, here are six weird things OTHER countries have banned.

 

 

1.  Lip-synching.  Turkmenistan banned it in 2005 to preserve their, quote, “true culture.”  They also decided that opera and ballet are, quote, “unnecessary”.

 

 

2.  Ponytails on men.  Iran banned them in 2010.  And they basically said guys can’t have long hair in general.

3.  Running out of gas on the highway.  If you do it on the Autobahn in Germany, it’s a $100 fine.  Then if you walk to GET gas, it’s another $100 fine, because walking on the Autobahn is ALSO illegal.

 

 

4.  Dancing in clubs.  It’s technically illegal in Tokyo after midnight.  They’re talking about changing it before they host the 2020 Olympics though.

5.  Porn stars with small breasts.  In 2010, Australia made it illegal for porn stars to even LOOK younger than 18.  So if you’re flat-chested and 50, you CAN be in a porno.  But probably not if you’re flat-chested and younger than about 30.

 

 

6.  Movies about time travel.  In China, it’s illegal to watch movies or TV shows about time travel, because according to the government, it “disrespects history
