  • The NBA Draft Lottery was held....and?

    Last night, the NBA had their annual draft lottery, and the New Orleans Hornets won the first pick in the draft for next year. I bring this up because I am not a fan of the one and done rule that the NBA has. A majority of the first 10 picks will be 19 year old freshman who have declared for the draft. I disagree with this rule because I feel the kids are too young and not educated or prepared to instantly be in that environment with that much money. I also think this way because I am more of a college basketball fan than an NBA fan, and because of this rule, there is no connection to players as a fan. They show up for one year and then are gone. No team is worse with this than the University of Kentucky. I moved to Wichita from Lexington, KY and know first hand about that. I hated the team because I didn't know the team. The program has become identified as a one and done school. I hope David Stern and the NBA change the rule for a player to be at least 20 years of age and/or at least two years of college play.

  • Do I lose my man card for this????

    I admit it, I am fascinated by royalty. Last night on ABC, there was a two hour special on Queen Elizabeth II. She has been the Queen of England for 60 years. The special featured interviews with Princes William and Harry and several other members of the royal family. Plus, Catie Couric, the host of the show was given a tour of Buckingham Palace. I am always interested in news stories not just of the royals in England, but Sweden, Norway, Monte Carlo, Jordan and other countries. I am a fan of William and Catherine and yes, I watched their wedding on TV last year. haha! Ok, what do you think? Do I get to keep my man card?

  • My attempt at Siskel & Ebert....(plot alert)

    So I saw the movie Men In Black III over the holiday weekend. The movie does live up to the hype of the first two movies. I found it better than the sequel but not as good as the original. The storyline was ok at best. J has to travel back in time to prevent an event from happening. The best part of the movie actually was newcomer Josh Brolin. He played K back in time. Very funny. I also appreciated the storyline at the end where Agent J is revealed to have actually met K as a child. You find out that Andy Warhol was actually a cover for an agent in the MIB program and they introduce a new chief in Agent O of the program as Zed has passed away.

  • I believe in aliens...

    I have always been a fan of sci-fi. I am a fan of the Star Wars and Star Trek franchises, I loved E.T. when I was a kid, watched ALF on TV and was a huge fan of the 80's TV series "V" and the updated series that was on last year on ABC. The new movie, Men In Black III comes out this weekend, so you can be assured I will be checking it out. The trailers for the movie released the last several months don't look that great, but I am seeing it just to continue the storyline.

  • It only took 2 hours...

    I took a chance and went to the Sedgwick County Tag office on the West side of Wichita on Maize Rd. I got there at 11:10a and it took two hours standing in line to finally get up to the front and get a new tag for my car. The nightly news and local newspaper has been mentioning all the problems that the offices are having with the new system. On top of that, there were only 3 people handling over 100 people in line or waiting. I am thankful it only took 2 hours. haha! and I am out almost $500. UGH!

  • I can't wait til the new James Bond movie is out!

    I have always been a fan of 007. I am a huge James Bond fan and look forward to every movie that comes out. Recently the new trailer was released for the newest movie "Skyfall". The movie is scheduled for November 2012. I have really enjoyed Daniel Craig as James Bond. He has made the character deeper and darker than ever before and this trailer is really good. I can't wait til November.. Here is the trailer that was released.

  • WHY? WHY? WHY?

    This has happened to all of us. Your car tags are due and you go the to local tag office to get new ones. You walk in, and there are over 50 people sitting and waiting to do the same thing and you find out the wait is over 3 hours. Well, that happened to me yesterday. The other side of this is the fact that the state of Kansas switched over to a new system in the last month and it's still causing problems to force the wait even longer. I have until the end of May to get it done. I will try a few more times and then ultimately I will probably have to do it online.

  • It only took 3 weekends, but it finally happened!

    I finally saw THE AVENGERS at the movie theater this past weekend. It only took three weekends to do it, as the previous weekends shows all being sold out when I wanted to see it. Was it worth the wait? YES! The movie turned out to be pretty good. A little long, but I understand since they had to set up several parts of the storyline incase many viewers hadn't watched the previous individual movies of each character. The movie was filled with action and fantastic special effects. I ended up seeing the 2D version but could certainly see the 3D version being really cool. And of course, after the credits, there was another scene that sets up a sequel in the next two years. Next up at the movies, this Memorial Day weekend, it's MEN IN BLACK III.

  • Are you ready to get your Grub on?

    Ribfest is going on now at Intrust Bank Arena. Ribs, BBQ, good eats this at Ribfest. Live music, entertainment, a kids area, a beer garden...The weather should hold up for a nice Saturday. It's FOX day tomorrow and we'll be out there all day. Bring the family or grab your friends and come hang at Ribfest. I can't wait to eat.. haha! HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

  • Ready for Wingnuts baseball....

    Right when I moved here to Wichita, I got here a week before I started the new job here at The Fox. So during the week of being here, I took care of all of the things you need to do when you move. Went to a bank, an insurance agent, got a new drivers license and car tags and the other things. So at night I had some free time, so I went to the Wichita Wingnuts. It was at the end of last season, and the Wingnuts were in the playoffs. I think I went to 3-4 games. I thought the stadium was great with the Wichita downtown skyline past center field. I am looking forward to going to many Wingnuts games during the Wichita summer.

  • Crazy that the TV show aired, and I didn't know about it...

    I got an email from my mom the other day mentioning that the episode of the CBS TV show 48 Hours aired. I knew that the show was doing an episode around the story, but didn't know it was done and finally aired. See, several years ago, there was an event in my extended family that changed us forever. I won't get into any details out of respect for my family, but I watched the link my mother sent of the show in it's entirety from the website. It was really strange watching it, since I am related to the people affected. This story was all over the local news in NYC and even made the national news programs. I will always love and support my family.

  • Ok, I admit it, Howard Stern on AGT wasn't bad.

    It's Monday night and so I was sitting on the couch with SJ watching TV. I am a channel flipper. I flip between WWE, Two and a Half Men, and football usually. No football right now, but I was flipping and came to the show America's Got Talent. The King of All Media Howard Stern is now a judge on the show and I found myself watching the show. Howard Stern has made the show really good. He is funny, honest and brings a whole new dimension to the show. Why am I admitting to this, who knows... haha! Ok, so I am a fan of Howard Stern. Did you watch it and what did you think? Comment and let me know.

  • Two weeks in a row, it's sold out?

    For the second weekend in a row, I tried to go see the movie The Avengers. I even thought I did the smart thing and wait to see it until Sunday afternoon thinking that I would avoid all the crowds. But no, I went yesterday to see the 3:30 showing and alas it was SOLD OUT! I asked when the next screening was that there were tickets available and the girl in the ticket booth said the 10p showing. UGH! Guess I will have to wait again til this upcoming weekend. Hopefully, by then, there will be a decent hour showing that is not sold out and I can finally see The Avengers. Other movies on my list is Battleship and Men In Black III.

  • What should I do in Kansas City?

    Thinking of going to KC for a day trip on Sunday this weekend. I have only driven through the city, never stopping. Where and what should I do in KC? What are the must see's? I have heard some nice things about the city, but I don't know anything. Hit me up and let me know so I can work it in when I visit.

  • I am such a momma's boy!

    My mom has been out of the country for over two weeks now. She returns home to Texas this upcoming weekend. I am pretty close to my mom. I am really not a momma's boy, just that my mom and I have become close over the last 10 or so years. I am just as close to my 92 year old grandmother. I talk to them 2-3 times a week on the phone. So with my mom out of the country and not being able to chat on the phone, it's been weird. She travels a lot, so this isn't new. I look forward to chatting with her this weekend when she returns.

  • My fantasy team is bad ALREADY??????

    Not a surprise, but my fantasy baseball team isn't doing so well. haha! shocker. Not that it matters really, but I wasn't a part of the draft so it was a crap shoot on who was going to be on my team. So I don't exactly have the best players. Now with the season a month in, I am in 2nd to last place. haha! I hope to improve sure, but I don't see it happening. Hopefully, as is usually the case, players are in peaks an valleys and will get out of the slump they are in and start producing. Regardless, I still love playing each year because it's more about the comradre with the other managers than anything..

  • I've never seen DLR!

    I am excited with the recent announcement of Van Halen coming to Wichita on Sept 17th at Intrust Bank Arena. I have only seen Van Halen live in concert once and that was about about 2003 when I saw them in Biloxi, MS. The line up then was Sammy, Eddie, Alex and Michael. So this will be my first time to see Van Halen with David Lee Roth. Dissappointed that Michael Anthony isn't a part of the line up, but I have heard positive things about Wolfgang. Tickets go on sale this weekend. September 17th can't come soon enough.

  • Who knew the Sedgwick County Zoo was that good?

    So I went to the Sedgwick County Zoo yesterday for a company function. I had never been. And I was very impressed. It was great to walk around and see all the different animals that the zoo has. Who knew that Wichita, KS was home to so many beautiful animals. I was very impressed and mad at myself that I hadn't visited the zoo yet. If you haven't either, you are missing out. Check them out at Here is a pic I took of one of the animals.

  • A great movie month...

    Two big movies come out this month that I have been looking forward to seeing. The first one opens this weekend. The Avengers. I saw all the single movies of each of the characters, so I am anxious to see the movie and how they all come together. Will see it sometime this weekend. The other movie out this month is MI3. Men In Black 3. Was a fan of the first movie, the second one wasn't as good as the first but I do like the story so I am curious to see the new one. What movies are you excited to see? Let me know.
