  • Corey's Daily Poll - Favorite Holiday Movies

    Posted by Corey Carter

    This weekend my wife and I were on a mission to find good, appropriate for an almost 3-yr old, Holiday movies on DVD for the upcoming road-trip to the U.P. and for general enterainment for my daughter at our house.

    It was the first time we ever really went DVD shopping for a specific genre of movie...

    We settled on Thomas the Tank Engine (not Mom's and Dad's favorite) and "Elmo Saves Christmas" (which is much better...)

    That lead me to think, what is YOUR favorite Holiday movie?

     

  • ((Video)) What Aaron Rodgers REALLY thinks is important

    Posted by Corey Carter

    I'm a Vikings fan, but I DO like the Packers and I especially applaud ANY pro-athlete who takes time to really touch the lives of others.  Aaron Rodgers is a GREAT person, and this video is just another reason why.

    GREEN DAY POSTPONES 2013 TOUR DATES

    INCLUDING JAN. 7 CONCERT AT
    GREEN BAY’S RESCH CENTER

    Green Bay (Oct. 29, 2012) - Green Day announced today they will
    postpone all scheduled appearances for the months of January and
    February 2013, including the January 7 concert scheduled at The
    Resch Center in Green Bay, WI.

    New dates for these rescheduled shows will be announced shortly and
    previously purchased tickets will be honored on the new dates. Fans
    who have already purchased tickets are encouraged to hold onto their
    tickets until the new dates are announced. Refunds, if necessary, will
    be available at the Resch Center Box Office when the new concert date
    is announced.

    "Obviously the timing for this isn't ideal, but Billie Joe's well-being is
    our main concern," said Mike Dirnt. "We are happy to say that Billie
    Joe is doing well, and we want to thank you all for the outpouring of
    support and well wishes that we have received, and we can't wait to
    see you all again soon."

    Green Day also announced they would move up the release date
    of Green Day ¡Tré! to December 11, 2012 from its original date of
    January 15, 2013. "We feel bad we have to delay our tour, so to
    make up for it we want to give our fans the music earlier than we had
    planned," said Tré Cool. "If we couldn't be there to play it for you live,
    the least we could do was give you the next best thing."

  • Because Sometimes You Just Want To Eat A Leaf...

    Posted by Corey Carter

    Got our first "family" pictures taken yesterday since the boys were born last year.  Quite a challenge for our photographer to get two 1 year-olds and an almost 3-year old to look at the camera at the same time.

    I guess Noah likes leaves.  Wonder if he'll be a "salad guy" when he grows up??

    (Sorry...I don't post my kid pictures too much because I don't want to be "THAT PARENT" but I had to share this, I thought it was pretty cute...but I'm biased :))

    Front cover of the Green Bay Press Gazette today (10/22/12)

    Do you think after the Brookfield tradgedy, they could have thought of a different headline for the Packers game?????

    (I know sometimes that time-lines don't work out in the newspaper, so this might be a strange coincidence..but...)

    So what would have been a better headline for the game?  Comment below:

     

  • This is why we love James Jones

    Posted by Corey Carter

    We got this call from a WIXX Listener during 1 on 1 w/Boys last night.

    I wish you could have seen James' face when the man first started telling this story, you could tell he remembered exactly...

    You know that the average person wouldn't have probably helped this lady, let alone a millionaire member of the Packers.   Just shows that James is an extremely humble professional athlete.  I wish they were all like James.

    Who would have thought...RICE can be toxic to your body!!!!

    Rice

    Having 3 young children, and especially our twin now 1-year old son's, my wife and I found this article somewhat alarming. 

    (And here's to me thinking that rice was like the simplest, most-pure food you could eat!!)
