Today in the DFW area, it was an absolutely nutty sportsday. First, in the morning was a crazy car chase. Then in the afternoon I turn onto 105.3 FM The Fan to find RAGE (2p.m.-7p.m.) were not on the air. Also I find out about the 2 bombs that go off at the end of the Boston Marathon today. I’m sitting here trying to figure out what’s going to happen next. Who knows. I’m a loyal listener of the station and frankly don’t want to change the channel. I’m reading all these people being nasty and saying unkind things. That’s their opinion. One phrase I always say, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all.” Included here is a picture of Richie. How I’ll always remember him at the Fan. Fun and a real ham. While some folks might not agree with me on that, it’s just my opinion. In this area, it’s all about the ratings and well here’s the article that was put on the Dallas Morning News website today explaining what happened. : http://www.dallasnews.com/sports/more-sports/headlines/20130415-greg-williams-richie-whitt-tweet-their-time-on-the-fan-is-over.ece
Other than that, I really don’t have a clue what happened.
Onward to the tragedy in Boston, MA. My heart goes out to everyone in Boston after what has happened. I hope to goodness that they find the people that did this. No one deserves to see such violence at a big event like the Boston Marathon. Now this day will forever be remember for a senseless act of violence like a bombing. It’s a real shame.
And now for something completely different… for anyone who is fans of the improv show “Whose Line Is It Anyway”, get ready, they’re coming back!!!!!!! Yes that’s right, it’s time for improv comedy mayhem to start up once more. Coming to the CW network on July 16th. Not sure who all is going to be on the show. You can check out @WhoseLineNation on Twitter for updates. And also follow @Mangum1 on twitter as well. One of the younger comedians who was on Drew Carey’s Improv-A-Ganza and he’s a hoot!!! And on a really happy note, The Whose Line Anyway cast of Greg Proops, Ryan Stiles, Jeff B. Davis and Chip Esten are finally coming to Dallas, Texas next month on May 18th at the Majestic Theatre. All I can say is that it’s about time they came to Dallas. I had a total geeking out moment when I saw the date. If you want some real entertainment, go google some old Improv-A-Ganza and watch Chip and Jeff singing. What makes the women scream in the audience is when Chip winds up and does the James Brown splits. *drool moment* A couple of ones to watch “Short Fuse”, “Bail Me Out” and “HMO” to name a few.
Here’s a Youtube link of “Bail Me Out” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68O6TlIdhDg&list=PL3CC8D4F31C09AEF6&index=6
“Leave the Dollar In” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2Wd1vEPgkQ&list=PL3CC8D4F31C09AEF6&index=19
“I Chip, You Dig” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4AwNZrsEqYk&list=PL3CC8D4F31C09AEF6
Here’s hours of entertainment for you. Just a sample of improv fun.
