  • Suicide sucks!

    I found out yesterday that a friend from high school took her own life the day prior. She had a successful business, recently found love and got married for the first time at 40 and seemed to have everything going for her. This also happened to a cousin of mine about 6 months ago where she did the same thing. Even though you don't know why they decided to end their life, you can't feel the pain they must have felt inside them for them to think about suicide. I hope both my friend and my cousin are at peace now.

  • Sucks for Tim Tebow....

    So we found out that Peyton Manning is going to be a Denver Bronco. Happy for him and hope he does well. I am a Peyton fan. I am also a Tim Tebow fan. I was a fan of Tim when he was in college at Florida. Whether or not I agreed with his bringing religion into football, the fact that he was positive in everything he did and a great role model was more important to me. I hope he lands somewhere and continues to grow. He may not be a pro football caliber quarterback just yet in the minds of many, but I think can get there.

  • So how are YOU doing in your brackets so far?

    With the first week of games over, I am actually not doing so bad. I have 10 of the 16 teams left still playing in my brackets. Thats actually not that bad. As far as the state of Kansas is concerned, I had Wichita State going further, but that didn't happen. And I have Kansas in my brackets and they pulled out a crazy victory last night to keep going. I love the month of March and college basketball. If you are playing along, hopefully you are doing well with your bracket.

  • Let the games begin!!!

    One day into it and I am loving it. College basketball is great this time of year with all the action going on with the big tournament. Already a disappointment with Wichita State getting beat in the first round. A few upsets and obviously some games that were predictable. The energy and excitement and the level and quality of play from the teams is what March is all about. My team, TEXAS, plays today. Hopefully they will get a W.

  • Finally, there is a movie I want to see....

    Is it just me, or is the quality of movies that are out in theaters just not that appealing lately. The last movie I went to see was Moneyball about 2 months ago. Before that it was Mission Impossible. So I have seen 2 movies at a movie theater in 6 months. That's not normal for me as I usually enjoy going and checking out a movie on the weekend. So, finally, this weekend the movie 21 Jump Street is coming out. The trailor looks cheesy and I am really not a huge fan of the stars of the movie, Jonah Hill and I don't know much about Channing Tatum. Ice Cube also stars in the movie. The reason I am going is because I was a fan of the TV show 21 Jump Street back in the early 90's starring Johnny Depp. As a matter of fact, Johnny Depp is in this movie adaptation. I am not sure how much screen time he will have. For me, going to the movie is more curiousity than anything just to see how they do this movie and comparing it to the tv show. We shall see.

  • I love the Madness!

    I LOVE MARCH!!! The games haven't even started, well, unless you count the play in games from last night, and I am 2-0. I picked the right teams to win last nights play in games. I filled out my brackets yesterday and playing along. No office pool or friends doing it this year..Just me. But I am still going to have fun watching the games and following along on my brackets to see how well I will end up doing. Here's a dilemha. Not really, but this will be fun if this happens. I have in my bracket Wichita State taking on Kentucky. I moved to Wichita from Lexington, KY so if the game actually does happen, I will have some fun with friends about the game. The month of March is a blast for me..

  • Daylight Savings is kicking my butt!

    Normally the time change doesnt affect me. But this time around it is. And I think I know why...Well I don't think, I know. For some reason my iPhone is not functioning properly. The time change was good on my phone...except the alarm. I have my alarm set for 6a to wake up each morning on weekdays. Yesterday and this morning, with my alarm set for 6a, it's gone off at 5a. WHY????? Looks like a trip to the AT&T store today to get this problem resolved.

  • The college B-Ball brackets are set!!!

    Congrats to Wichita State, Kansas, and Kansas State!! All being invited to participate in this years Big college bracket tournament. My team also made it.....barely. Texas was a bubble team that got the 11 seed and will face Cincinnati in the first round. The Big 12 has a nice showing in the tournament this year, so I am happy. I was also very happy to see Kentucky lose to Vanderbilt in the SEC Championship game. haha. They still recieved the overall #1 seed but I have my fingers crossed that they won't win it all this year. :)

  • Washington is coming to Kansas!!!

    With the Republican battle to see who gets the nomination heating up, they are finally heading to Kansas. This years Presidential election is going to be very interesting. I am not here to talk about which Party you are affiliated with, nor am I going to bring up anything about our current Commander In Chief. I just think this election, in my opinion, will one of the most heated, debated, and emotionally charged elections in decades. I will say this, don't complain or argue anything that is negative unless you do use your right as an American to vote. That is an awesome priviledge that we have here in America.

  • Solar flares, sleet storms.....Those Mayans, should I be worried???

    Today, the media is reporting that the biggest solar flares in 5 years has happened and we would possibly see effects today. I woke up this morning to sleet and snow. It's 2012, and yes, I am starting to wonder if the end is near. December 21st is the date. It's now March. UGH! haha.

  • Do you like the Jessica Simpson pregnant pic that's surfaced????

    So with the recent Jessica Simpson pregnant pic surfacing, I thought I would find and upload the pic I have with her. I met her about 5 years ago in Dallas at a radio industry gathering. She was actually really cool, very attractive in person, and much brighter than the media has portrayed her to be. We chatted for about 30 minutes and she seemed genuinely interested in the conversation. Ok, have I lost my 'man card'? HAHA

  • To goatee or Not to goatee? That is the question...

    I go through phases with facial hair. Luckily, I have a job that doesnt require or enforce a policy on facial hair. So my whole adult life, I change up my appearance all the time. I have never just had a mustache. I have grown a beard a few times in my life. However, I actually have grown to like a goatee. Sometime I keep it trimmed, sometimes I let it grow out for a month to get bushy. Over the last few years, I have started to get gray in my goatee and so I tend to keep it trimmed. Last night, after quite a long time, I had a complete shave and it's rather strange. I have a total babyface and look weird. Looks like I will be growing another goatee. haha

  • Dog park etiquette!

    So as you know, I bring my dog SJ to the dog park almost every weekend to let him run around and play with the other dogs. He looks forward to it and knows when I load him up in my car that is where we are going. I don't understand some dog owners who bring their dogs that don't play well with others or are too aggressive. It bothers me that they don't try to help their dog with these behavior problems and then it really bothers me that the same ones keep bringing their dogs to the park. I have caught myself a few times from opening my mouth to say something knowing that it would come across as bad.

  • Do you play Texas Hold Em Poker???

    I do. And now hearing that the poker room at the Kansas Star is open, I may be in trouble. haha. Living pretty close to a casino is good and bad. Good in that its a short drive to go relax and play cards. Bad because it may become addicting and depending on if you win or lose, financially it could be bad. I consider myself to be a good, tight player that only plays hands that I think I can win. Hopefully this mentality puts me more in the win column and I can make a few extra bucks every so often. One of the things on my 'bucket list' is to enter the WSOP and try to get in the money... The buy in is $10,000 and the chances of getting in the money is so slim since over 2,000 people play in this tournament.. But I hope to enter the tournament one day and see what happens. Until then, I'll see you at the Kansas Star for some Texas Hold Em.

  • Happy 40th!!! Can't believe it's been 40 years....

    One of my ALL time favorite movies, The Godfather, is celebrating its 40th year since it was released. It's been on TV all this week. If I am watching TV, no matter what I am watching, if I flip through the channels and I come across The Godfather, I always stop whatever I am doing and watch the movie. It was such a classic movie, with amazing dialogue.

  • What exactly is Leap Year?

    It seems like every four years I have to refresh my memory on why exactly is there a February 29th? It has to do with with our calender of 365 days a year. Actually there is 365 days and 1/4 of another day in the calender year. Over time that 1/4 day adds up and then the seasons will be all out of whack in the calender and we would have summer during the winter months and vise versa. So thats why an extra day is added every four years to help keep the calender months in alignment.

  • Did you like The Oscars this year????

    I watched it, well, because every year, it seems like you have to watch it just to be 'in the know' and see what everybody is saying or doing. I havent watched the movie 'The Artist' and probably never will. That kind of movie doesn't appeal to me. I found it funny that trending on Twitter was the comment 'who is Billy Crystal?'... That's an indication that they may need to skew a little younger next year. I was happy for Meryl Streep. I loved the outfits of J'Lo and Cameron Diaz. The Cirque du Soleil piece during the show was very cool. Seeing Stacy Keibler with George last night. I met Stacy many years ago when she worked for WCW. She was very kind and beautiful. All in all, this was not a truly memorable awards show this year, but none the less, congrats to all the winners.

  • Finally, a good movie weekend!

    Is it just me, or has there not been anything worthwhile to see at the movie theaters. It probably is just me, but finally, in about 2 months, there is a movie I want to see. The new Paul Rudd/Jennifer Aniston movie Wanderlust opens this weekend. Coming soon, is the movie 21 Jump Street. I was a fan of the tv version starring Johnny Depp, so I want to see this movie for nostalgia even though this won't even come close to living up to the concept. I have literally seen only two movies in the last 6 months at a theater. The Mission Impossible movie at the IMAX on 21st street and also the movie Moneyball. The Oscars are this weekend, so we shall see if Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill or the movie gets any awards.

  • I finally got one!!!

    I went to the Post Office yesterday and finally got one. A passport! I had one when I was a teenager but obviously it expired and I don't even know where it is. I am excited. I am going on a cruise in the late summer and visiting ports in Spain, France, and Italy. It's a belated birthday present that I am finally going to take. This will be my 4th cruise, but first to a non tropical one. I have been to Germany and Austria, like I mentioned when I was a teenager, but have never visited the places I will be in August. Have you? Any advice, please hit me up and tell me things I should do. johnny@1045thefox.com

  • Is it golf weather yet???

    Today's high is expected to be 70. It's FEBRUARY! Now, all season long I have been told this is the mildest winter that Wichita has had in many years. I feel fortunate since I hate cold weather. I grew up in Houston, TX and was used to playing golf all year round. I played a round this weekend and froze my ass off. I look forward to the time when I will be able to play a round of golf every weekend. Bring on the warm weather!!! :)
