  • Funny Things Packers Fans Yelled at the Bears Game

    Posted by Corey Carter

    Corey at Lambeau

    So I was lucky enough to score some pretty sweet seats to the game on Thursday night. (Section 116)

    It was about 95% Packers Fans and 4.99% Bears fans (and .01% Vikings fans - ME)

    Anyway, heard some funny Packers fans screaming insults at Bears fans.   My favorite 3 were:

    1-"PIZZA WASN'T EVEN INVENTED IN YOUR TOWN!!!!!!!!!!"

    2-"THE BEST THING TO COME OUT OF CHICAGO IS I-94!!!"

    3-"O' HARE AIRPORT SUCKS!!"

    God, I love drunk Packers fans.  Those quotes were actually more entertaining than the first half lol....

  • New Packers Song - Actually Not Bad!!

    Posted by Corey Carter

    Okay, so every year we hear a good handful of Packers-themed songs by local or regional non-professional musicians wanting us to play their Packers song.

    To be honest...most of them SUCK.


    Bad.

     

    Once in a while we come across a good one.  I think this is a good one.  We don't play too much rap on WIXX, but I thought whether you are a rap fan or not, you might enjoy this:

  • Someday my daughter will kill me for this...

    Posted by Corey Carter

    So my daughter is just over 2 1/2 years old.

    Jenna and Cole

    She's a good girl, and we're blessed enough to have Mommy be able to stay at home with her and her twin 9month old brothers.  It's a slightly busy/crazy/loud house...

    Anyway, she's potty trained - for #1.  She's very good about that and hasn't had any accidents in about a month.  So I think we're good there.

    However, she can't quite grasp the concept of going "#2" on the potty.

    She has done it a FEW times, but not many.   She still goes in her pants, and it's very frustrating/disgusting...(as you parents know..)

    So HELP!!

    What can we do to reinforce her to tell us BEFORE she goes in her pants so we can go in the potty???

    We've tried the treat-bowl for #1, which worked...but it does not work for #2.

    We don't want to get mad or yell at her....but it's starting to become hard not to...

    PARENTS:  Do you have any suggestions as to what to do to help???  (comment below)


    Me and my wife THANK YOU!!

  • Will Ferrell Turns 45! Top 5 Will Ferrell Movies

    Posted by Corey Carter

    In MY humble opinion.  Since Will Ferrell is my favorite actor, I felt compelled to make this list?
    (These movies have Will in one of the "lead" roles...that means "Wedding Crashers" and "Austin Powers" don't count...)
    How does it stack up to YOUR list???

     

    5-TIE:Step Brothers / The Other Guys

     

    4-Old School

    Best Line: 

    Marissa: [after seeing Frank running naked along the streets, she slows down her car] Frank, what are you doing? 
    Frank: [out of breath] We're... We're going streaking! We're going up the quad and to the gymnasium. 
    Marissa: Who is? 
    Frank: Th... W... There's more coming. 
    Marissa: Frank, get in the car. 
    Frank: But... everybody's doing it. 
    Marissa: Frank! Now! 
    Frank: [still out of breath] Ok. 

    3-Elf

    Best Line: 

    Buddy: You smell like beef and cheese, you don't smell like Santa. 

    2-Talledega Nights

    Best Line:

    Jean Girard: But you have forced me to do this. You are now mocking me and making me look ridiculous. Just say, "I love crepes." 
    Cal Naughton, Jr.: You know, just to put this in there, I had a whole mess of crepes this morning. They're just like pancakes, maybe even better. 
    Ricky Bobby: Wait, are they the really thin pancakes? 
    Cal Naughton, Jr.: Yeah. 
    Jean Girard: Yes they are. They are the really thin pancakes. It's just a French word for them. 
    Ricky Bobby: Oh, my god, I love those. 
    Cal Naughton, Jr.: Put any syrups you want on them. I'm just saying, think about it. 
    Ricky Bobby: They come with cheese sometimes? 
    Jean Girard: Yes, of course, a fromage-crepe. 
    Ricky Bobby: Well, why didn't someone yell that right-right away? 
    Jean Girard: Do you know what's in the crepe suzette? 
    Ricky Bobby: Oh, I love the crepe suzette. 
    Jean Girard: With the sugar and lemon juice... 
    Ricky Bobby: Yeah, the sugar and the lemon juice. Sure. 
    Jean Girard: Grand Marnier. 
    Ricky Bobby: I wo - I wish I could crawl into one of those right now. I'd eat my way out from the inside. 
      

     

    1-Anchorman

    Best Line: 

    Ron Burgundy: I don't know how to put this but I'm kind of a big deal. 
    Veronica Corningstone: Really. 
    Ron Burgundy: People know me. 
    Veronica Corningstone: Well, I'm very happy for you. 
    Ron Burgundy: I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany. 

    (The only other one that was VERY hard to leave off the list was the "The Lost Anchorman Movie" which was only available with a special DVD set sold in 2004/2005. Not many people have watched that tho.  I have - it's HIGHLY recommended.)

     

    Just for reading this whole blog post, here's a treat:  The trailer for Anchorman 2!!
