  • Do NOT play horse with this guy

    From Yahoo sports

    Murray State freshman Isaiah Canaan typically spends a few minutes at the end of practice each day hoisting up crazy trick shots better suited for a game of H-O-R-S-E than anything else.

    Never has he even attempted one quite like the shot he sank during an actual game on Tuesday night.

    With the shot clock running down late in the first half against Southeast Missouri State, Canaan retrieved a loose ball just in front of the mid-court stripe and had no choice but to flick the ball at the basket from his knees. Against all odds, it banked in, giving Murray State a 29-12 lead and earning Canaan the No. 1 spot on SportsCenter's top plays on Wednesday. 

    "I've always dreamed of being on SportsCenter, but I never thought it would be like that," Canaan said by phone Wednesday. "We do some crazy shots after practice, but we'll either be behind the goal or somewhere in the stands. We've never been out there on the court on our knees. I still don't know how that went in." 

    Canaan's shot was the top story on Murray State's official athletic site on Wednesday, ahead of the team extending the nation's longest winning streak to 16 and clinching the Ohio Valley Conference title.

    The Biloxi, Miss. native appeared on ESPN's First Take on Wednesday morning, conducted a series of interviews with local reporters in the afternoon and plans to recreate the shot for a Kentucky TV station in the evening.

    "I'm going to see if I can get 3 out of 10," Canaan said. "I'm going to see if I can live up to that."

    How will Canaan top that shot? The only way he can think of is to hit one just like it at the buzzer to win a game.

    "I know coach definitely won't draw that play up, but if it happens that way, that would be wonderful," he said.

  • Here's what lost is really about!

    Posted by Otis Day

    I'm about a season and a half behind on Lost.  Ever since I canceled pay TV I've lost my DVR....so i only get around to it online when I think about it.  So I'm still about 6 episodes from the end of LAST season.  But I'm pretty sure I know what's going on anyways.  I've had it figured out since day 1.  This is all a dream Bob Newhart is having.  Mark my words.

  • The Muppets have gotten cool

    I'm sure this won't take off quite like manamana, but it's pretty funny.  Don't know what manamana is?  Yeah, I ran into a few people this weekend that didn't either.  Season 1, episode 1 of The Muppet Show....1st skit was Manamana.  Enjoy!

  • Only YOU can save our jobs!

    Posted by Otis Day

    The Big record companies are losing money, and they want to make some of it back with a performance tax on Radio stations.  That means people here in our building will lose their jobs, while the foreign owned record companies will continue to get richer.  

    For more than 80 years, radio and the recording industry have enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship: free play for free promotion. And it works. The recording industry now wants to impose a fee – a performance tax – on local radio stations.

    There's no question that a performance tax would financially hurt WIXX and all local stations, stifle new artists and harm the listening public who rely on free local radio.

    In Wisconsin Senator Feingold voted to move this to the floor, in other words, he wants it to pass, he is against radio on this.  Let him know how you feel about him giving the money from your salary to Foreign Owned Record Labels and super rich music stars like Bono, Fergi, Will I Am, Toby Keith, Miley Cyrus and on and on.  Contact Senator Feingold and tell him you're against taking more local jobs and lining the pockets of the Rich with their salaries.  You can call him at (202) 224-5323, or go here.

    I went to the Shinedown/Puddle of Mudd show last night at the Brown County Arena and had a BLAST!!!!!!   What a great show.  HUGE crowd.  I was there mostly for Puddle Of Mudd, but Shinedown rocked it big time!

    Couldn't get any video last night(Would have loved to when they covered TNT from AC/DC), but I found some live Puddle Of Mudd stuff online.  Here's a bit of what it sounded like last night. 

    Thanks to everyone who came out and supported LIVE rock and roll in Green Bay on a cold, windy, snowy night.  It was a BLAST!!!!

  • Daughtry and his hair at the Superbowl

    Posted by Otis Day

    Kat has sent us a few emails about Daughtry at the Superbowl preshow and she seems very distraught over the fact that he has let his hair grown out a bit.  HEY KAT!!!! Some of us that are not bald by choice applaud him coming out of the bald closet! 

    I don't know if you guys watched the pre-show yesterday or not, but since DAUGHTRY is coming to The Resch in May I thought this might interest your listeners.
     
    Chris is growing out his hair...barf (just sayin')
    He just looks like everybody else now :-(
     
    Love the station
    !
    Thanks,
    Kat

     

  • Jay Leno appears in Late Show with David Letterman ad!!!

    Posted by Otis Day

    How did they get Leno to do this?  Or did they dupe him?  Is this a Doritos ad that somehow CBS got to use for The Late Show?  Did Leno really agree to do an ad for Dave's show when he'll be going back to back with Dave again after the Olympics?

    Update 02/08/10 

    Got an email with a link to the backstory on the Leno/Letterman/Oprah ad.  Crazy stuff here!
