I have been completely swamped at work this week. We had the Kid Rock concert on Friday and it was the KFDI Listener Appreciation Show on Saturday. Friday was a 14 hour day and Saturday was nearly a 16 hour day. We had the Listener Appreciation Show at Koch Arena. We had our lunch break in the media room. we decided to have Simon "the intern" ask Mike (my assistant) and me some questions about the show. I decided to have fun and surprise Mike, and others in the room. The video of the "press conference gone bad" is in the video above. Please watch. :)

It is a very, very busy day at the station. Honestly! It is. I have been swamped all day getting ready for the Kid Rock concert on Friday, KFDI Listener Appreciation Show on Saturday and Disturbed concert on Sunday. I have also been all over the place getting a tent permit for our Radio Lobo Cinco De Mayo event on May 4th. We did have time to pull off the "box prank" one more time, though. We had students from Mulvane Middle School getting a tour of the building. I told Hank to take the box into the conference room and I had my assistant, Jeremy (from Rifle, CO) get in the box to get the kids. Well, he did! It was great. Please watch and enjoy!

It was a busy Saturday. Zach and Austin both helped me with Step Up For SIDS. It was a fundraising event for the SIDS Network of Kansas. I took this video at the event for the KFDI website. The event went great. I got a nasty sunburn, though. It was worth it. I would hate to even think what goes through a parents mind when they lose an innocent child to SIDS.
Kristi ordered Pizza and Pasta from Pizza Hut on Friday evening. I told the girls that they would have to come up with a dance and perform it if they wanted dinner. Isn't that terrible? So, here it is in the above video. It's Ally, Tiana, Madison, Shay Brown and Destiny. The pizza delivery guy will remember that address on Parkridge with the weirdos for the rest of his life.

Above is a video that I shot Friday evening. We have the kids this weekend. Maddie and Ally were in the family room and Zach was playing games. We have an extra kid this weekend. Shay Brown is a girl that Kristi used to watch. She still watches her sister, Adison. Adison is sick and her parents may have to take her in to the hospital, so they asked Kristi to watch her. I decided to sneak downstairs with the video camera to see what Tiana, Destiny and Shay were up to. well, this is what they were doing.

We had to do the "box prank" at work again today. This time I got my fat frame into the box. The victim this time was Sherry Stavinoha. She's a salesperson for our country stations. We had her come into the room to talk about an "upcoming event." Watch and enjoy. I did! LOL!

Tiana had her skating lessons at the Wichita Ice Center on Tuesday night. I decided to take the flip video camera to catch her in action. I got an added bonus. Listen closely for the crashing on the ice sound. Then watch as I catch (on video) a girl realizing that you must take off your skate guards before you enter the ice. The video is above. Please click it to watch it.

Jeremy has gone a month without his favorite drink, Diet Coke. I am going to try and quit by doing the same. My favorite is Diet Pepsi. I have cut down a lot in the past few days, but still average 1-3 per day. I am going to drink more water. I bought packets of "True Orange" and "True Lemon" to put in with my water. I am hoping that this will make the water not so bland on a regular basis. I will keep you updated. I am hoping that it's good news. Congrats to Jeremy for hanging in there. I hope that I have the same positive results. I will let you know.

It was the first title for Kansas since 1988, when Danny Manning, now an assistant coach for the Jayhawks, led them to an upset of Oklahoma. And the shot earned Chalmers the most outstanding player honor.
It was a wild one in the Hubbard house. I think that I woke Kristi and the kids up when I started cheering after the Kansas win. Kristi was then woke up to the sounds and flashes of different houses in our neighborhood lighting fireworks. I have almost lost my voice now from the screaming, but it's worth it. I am so excited. I can remember back in 1988 when the Hawks won it last. I was on spring break and took the train from Garden City to Kansas City. I went to Missouri to see my friend Mark Dinwiddie. We watched the game at his house and I took the train back through Lawrence the day after they beat Oklahoma in the National Championship game. I remember being so excited to see the fans in the streets that next morning. I also got excited when my parents bought National Champs shirts for us at Sam's in Wichita. Yeah, I remember a lot of weird stuff.
ROCK CHALK, BABY!!!
We are at the house getting ready for the Kansas and Memphis National Championship game. It was like a holiday in Wichita today. Everywhere you look you see people wearing crimson and blue. It's wonderful. It would be a perfect end of the day to have the Jayhawks win it all. GO KU!!!

I woke up this morning and Destiny and Zach had come into the room. They wanted to cuddle with Kristi. So, I decided to make a video of how I combat that. I tickle them and try to get them out of the way. By the way, "Barted" is Destiny's word for passing gas (farted).

My favorite part of the night was seeing Roy Williams lose. It was nice to see mister "I am not going anywhere, I promise" lose to the guy that replaced him. It was very nice. ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK.....KU!!!

The National Football League is launching a makeover of its red, white and blue "NFL Shield" logo that adorns everything from player jerseys to fan T-shirts and hats. The league is creating a leaner, meaner version of the iconic logo that will debut at the NFL draft in April, 2008. The revamped shield will be slightly taller and thinner, with a new football, fewer stars and darker colors, says Lisa Baird, the NFL's senior vice president of marketing. The redesign marks the first changes to the shield since 1980.
•The new shield features eight stars (representing the eight AFC and NFC divisions) vs. 25 on the current logo. Why 25? It's a mystery. After researching the shield's origins, the designers could find no reason for 25 stars, says Jaime Weston, director of brand and creative operations. The shield logo was first used around 1940, two decades after the NFL's founding in 1920.
• The football at the center has been redesigned to resemble the ball atop the Vince Lombardi championship trophy, says Baird. It replaces the old-fashioned pigskin nicknamed the "Hamburger" inside league offices.
OK! That's enough of geeking it for tonight.

This is only the second time the Royals have opened the season with a three-game sweep on the road. The first time? Also in Detroit, in 1977 at Tiger Stadium. That Royals club, by the way, went on to win 102 games and the division title.
Can you believe that the Royals are undefeated? What the heck?

There was nothing minor about this contest after all. The Miners beat out 63 other teams in a single elimination tournament for the best logo award, which was determined by the readers of the CNBC blog, who voted more 700,000 times in total. The finale alone yielded more than 165,000 votes, a CNBC.com poll record.
The Miners were given a No. 3 seed to start the tournament. Along the way, they beat the Carolina Mudcats, the West Tennessee DiamondJaxx, the Grand Prairie AirHogs and the Augusta GreenJackets before prevailing over the Wingnuts.
"Your Dad said you sick I hope you are feeling better. lol" Mom
"lol?" Laughing out loud? She finds it humorous that I am sick? :)
