  • "The Beard" lives to see another day!

    When the KC Royals made it to the post season for the first time in 29 years everybody was excited. Then they won the Wild Card game. After they swept the Angels I thought I would start growing a beard in honor of the Royals as many of the players are sporting beards. I said I would shave once the Royals lost a game. Hard core fans were saying to me: "shave it when they lose a series, not a game!!" My response was that the beard was my contribution to baseball superstition. If I keep the beard till they lose a game, they won't lose a game. I truly didn't expect it to work so well!! lol!! And so the beard lives to see another day. And if they sweep this series, I'm gonna get a little bushy.

  • Great Album, terrible cover. "Paranoid" was released 44 years ago today!

    Many people heard the words "I am Iron Man" for the first time 44 years ago today. On Sept. 18, 1970, Black Sabbath released their second LP titled "Paranoid". The album contains several of the band's signature songs, including "Iron Man", "War Pigs" and the title track. This album is considered by many to be their best work however the album cover art is just plain stupid! To me it looks like a character from a Monty Python skit. The album was originally supposed to be called "War Pigs" and I guess the guy on the cover was a "War Pig"?????? Anyway, in case you forgot what the cover looks like:

  • Thanking Veterans in a Very Tangible Way

    Thank you to all the folks who have donated cars to the Cars4Heroes/Cars4Christmas charity. On Thursday Phil and I will have the pleasure of handing over the keys to veterans in need. It's hard to imagine that after serving one's country overseas a vet could return and be so under employed that he or she needed help getting a car. A car helps provide: job security, freedom, independence, so important in a city with out much in the way of public transit, yet.

    I'm going to start looking through my bags of change! I'm not a coin collector but I do put my spare change in a bag and when it's full I take it to the bank. I'm going to look through the quarters first.

  • VIDEO: Check out the Douglas Overpass facelift plan

    The railroad overpass that connects Old Town to Downtown is set to get a new facelift. When I was a teenager there was no "Old Town" so that overpass was just another part of Douglas that we cruised to pickup girls. People would rev the engines of their cars when they went underneath because the sound was so resonant. It was awesome!! As recently as after the Motley Crue/Alice Cooper show I drove underneath it and people were doing burnouts.

  • Are You an Adult Who Still Plays Arcade Games?

    I admit that I like Skeeball, even though it would be cheaper to just buy the prize awarded, than to win it. On vacation Tuesday I played a game where your skill at skeeball results in horses advancing to the finish line. I was with some friends who reunite at the arcade in Manitou Springs every once in awhile and make it a point to "play the horses". I had never seen this game. apparently I don't get to carnivals often enough. Phil says he not only as seen this, he's run it and it's called "The Derby"! Have you played this game as an adult? Email me at jharrison@1045thefox.com

    What a great story Norm Macdonald tweeted about meeting Robin Williams.

  • VIDEO: Robert Plant is coming to Denver

    As far as I'm concerned, Robert Plant is one of the few classic rock artists that is still making music that matters these days. One of the reasons he doesn't want to do a Led Zeppelin reunion is because "the expectation would be too high." I totally agree. Robert and his band The Sensational Space Shifters, have revealed a full list of dates for their 2014 North American fall tour in support of the upcoming album, Lullaby and...the Ceaseless Roar. The seven-show trek includes a stop in Denver Colorado!
