This game scared the crap out of me! I hope that they beat Williams. That would be wonderful. Go Hawks Go!
I was getting videos ready for our station website www.kfdi.com and came across this video above. It's a KFDI fan that was the first in line for tickets to the KFDI Listener Appreciation Show. She went on to tell me off camera all about her personal life. Her ex-husband even brought her by a hot drink to stay warm. She told me that he also gives her money when she needs it. She was interesting to say the least. Watch the video to have your own opinion.

It was a very busy day on Saturday. KFDI had a chance for listeners to be the first to get tickets to our Rodney Atkins concert at the "KFDI Listener Appreciate Show" on April 26th. There were hundreds and hundreds of people in the line waiting for the tickets to be released. We were there early in the morning getting ready for the event. We had a little down time here and there and came up with a new game. It's called "Man Sandwich." Scary name? I guess it could be, but what we would do is come up with a code word and then surprise someone. Above is the video of my assistant, Mike Clopton, intern, Simon Sumner and myself giving my assistant, Jeremy Stover (from Rifle, Colorado) a "Man Sandwich." He didn't see it coming. It was pretty funny.

It was a fun night, but very hectic.

Spectacular Attractions, doing business as Tulsa-based Murphy Brothers Exposition, has signed a $2 million contract to buy Thomas Etheredge's failed $30 million theme park out of bankruptcy, the first step in a plan to open the park later this year.
Final details were worked out within the hour, sources close to the bankruptcy said, and a motion to sell the park will be filed today with U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Bob Nugent in Wichita. Further details on the park's re-opening are pending.
The sale is scheduled to close May 31, although other bidders will have until May 8 to top the Tulsa group's offer.
The park purchase, along with $4.2 million for 35 rides to re-open the park, will be financed by industrial revenue bonds from the city of Park City. This announcement accomplishes the city's primary goal of getting the park up and running, officials said.
Murphy Brothers operates several mobile carnival rides at state fairs around the Midwest, most notably the Tulsa State Fair. The company is not involved in the annual Kansas State Fair.
We took the kids to Cirque du Soliel at the Kansas Coliseum on Wednesday night. The station was a the sponsor for the evening. It was awesome! The kids loved it, too. They weren't real sure about the clowns on stilts, though. Check out the video above.

The Jayhawks will get the winner of the Kent State-UNLV contest, set to take place right after this morning's game, in the Qwest Center Saturday evening at around 6:00 p.m. Brandon Rush led KU with 18 points, scoring 15 of those in the first half on 3-of-6 three-point shooting. Darrell Arthur was consistent on the offensive end from start to finish, scoring 17, while Mario Chalmers added 16.
KU was 12-of-26 from three-point range, while holding Portland State's leading scorer, Jeremiah Dominguez, to 13 points on a frustrating morning.

I think that the Hawks are peaking at the right time. It would be so awesome if they can win it all on the 20th Anniversary of their championship. I remember that like it was yesterday. I was on Spring break in 1988. I rode the train to Missouri and spent the break with my friend, Mark Dinwiddie. I remember riding the train through Lawrence the morning after they won the game and all the excitement. It was very cool. I love Lawrence. That is such a great town. I miss living there.
I have set my DVR to record "World News Now" and "ABC This Morning" each weekday. I appreciate Chris calling, but I also appreciate and need my beauty sleep. I thought that it was cool that he called, though.
Jeremy, you are doing awesome! Keep up the great work, bub!

A little side note. The kids would've had a different look on their faces if I had taken this 30 minutes earlier. I went out to the garage and noticed that they were using my good hockey sticks and I was not happy. One stick was a Christmas present from Kristi and it wasn't super cheap. They did tear up the other stick, which is also pretty nice. I whined for a little bit, re-taped the sticks and then everything was back to normal. As normal as it can be here. :)

The team changed it's name from the Lucky 7's to the IceAssins (that's how they spell it). I know. I had nothing to do with that, either. The team got new jerseys with the new name. They are very basic jerseys, which is fine with me. They didn't cost us anything. Anyway, my new number is "58." They gave me the jersey with "7" on it, but it didn't fit. Yep, I am officially a fatty and have to wear a bigger sized jersey with another number. So, until I can lose some weight, it's #58! Oh, and to add to the "F.A." stuff. I was in a game a couple of weeks ago and made a sweet pass to one of our guys, who went on to score a goal. After we scored, a player for the other team skated by me and said "Nice Pass Fat Ass!" I laughed. Hey! It's the truth! I told some co-workers, so when someone does something good at work we just say "N.P.F.A.!" People are starting to ask what that stands for, and we just laugh it off. So, until I drop some pounds I will be wearing #58 and the title "F.A.!"
