STP's BLOG 03/02/15 "14 Seconds!"

Did you catch the UFC 184 over the weekend? Rhonda Rousey did her best Mike Tyson (in his prime) impression by beating Cat Zingano in 14 seconds. Yes…14 seconds! The big joke online is the fight was so short that you could fit the entire match on an Instagram video (whick can be a max of 16 seconds)…here is proof to that!

I thought this was one of the cooler tributes to Leonard Nimoy, who sadly passed away on Friday. An astronaut by the name of Terry Virts gave love to Spock from space!

A few years ago we were lucky enough to chat with Leonard when he was promoting Star Trek Into Darkness. He was a great interview…if you never heard it, check it out here:

STP's BLOG 02/27/15 "Black/Blue or White/Gold"

Huge thanks to KING 5’s New Day Northwest for having us.  We were a part of their Hot Topics segment with Shawn Wayans…it was a blast being on the show again!

There's a photo going around online that's causing intense debate..serious debate.  It's just a dress, but some people see it as blue and black . . . and others see it as white and gold.  There's clearly an optical illusion going on, but so far there's no good explanation.
Ellen posted it on her Instagram and the internet exploded…

From this day on, the world will be divided into two people: blue and black, or white and gold.

A photo posted by Ellen (@theellenshow) on

This is completely crazy…some of you see blue and black…others see white and gold, and everyone thinks the other camp is wrong.  Oddly, I have seen it both ways…I’m one of the lucky few.  I have seen someone post it on Instagram…saw white and gold…then scrolled down…someone else posted it and I saw blue and black.  So I scrolled back up to the one I originally saw, and it was now blue and black.  This ESS is crazy.
For those of you that are being too cool for school and saying, “who cares”, “zero EFF’s given”, etc…just shut up.  Stop being so incapable of having fun. 
The other thing on the net people were losing their crap about was the llamas video!  A couple of llamas were on the loose in Arizona.  It was hilarious how this was a big news story… Shepard Smith from Fox News spent at least eight minutes cracking jokes and reading llama facts on live TV.  At one point he actually used the word "Llama-palooza."

STP's BLOG 02/26/15 "Flag That!"

I’m just going to leave this here for your entertainment…

There is a video spreading virally, and it’s just a baby laughing…however; this baby laughs like an evil genius…check it out:

If you listen to our show, you know the guys like to “flag” moments when I say ridiculous things./  Nothing beats going on KISW’s twitter page to see that they “flagged” a fine moment from this morning’s show…

STP's BLOG 02/25/15 -- "Checking Dudes Out"

We talked about this video on the air this morning...this video is nuts…literally (waka waka).  Someone secretly filmed people as he had a giant bulge in his pants.  His goal was to illustrate that women check dudes out in an objectifying way as well.  I don’t know how real or fake this is, but it’s an entertaining watch.  Plus the first chick is quite the looker!

This is crazy!  A guy in Canada named Andrew MacDonald was in a nasty crash last month, where rescuers had to use the Jaws of Life to get him out of his car.  So what did Andrew decide to do… he shot a selfie video during it!  He kept filming his face while they were cutting through the car, and it seemed like shock and adrenaline took over as he was pretty chill throughout it! 

I am glad he is OK…the video is crazy, but c’mon man…film it horizontally not vertically.  OK…OK…he gets a pass…since the dude in in a CAR WRECK!  Check it out:

So Marshawn Lynch has a movie being made called "Family First:  The Marshawn Lynch Story".  His little brother Davonte plays him in high school, and then Marshawn takes over for the college years.  Here is a promo video that just got posted to drum up interest in the film….

I will absolutely watch this film, as I am curious to learn more about his life story – that being said, I do have to question some of the acting and writing in this video that was posted…especially that part where the guy says: “your body and your mind took a back seat while your body took over"…I will have to stew on that line for a bit as it makes ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE!

STP's BLOG 02/24/15 "Is She Attractive?"

It’s time to play a fun game…do you think this person is attractive?  Before we start the game…I have no idea what she looks like as I cannot find a mug shot…but…I think we will all have the same answer!
A 33-year-old woman in Mexico was arrested last week for “enjoying” herself in a movie theater during "50 Shades of Grey".  Yes…right there in the theater.  You would think that would be like the IMAX added experience for a film like this, but no…one movie goer did not enjoy seeing this.  That person called the cops, and ironically…the woman was escorted out by the cops…in HANDCUFFS!  The should have blind folded her too… waka waka!
So…what do you think?  Toppy said it best…this woman must have been a 3…at best! 
Over the weekend, the world’s largest cannabis business and lifestyle expo was happening in Seattle…it's called "CannaCon", and our very own Max Long was there to report on it.   Here is another edition of The Max Long Report.

STP's BLOG 02/23/15 "Team Toppy Wins!"

How would you like a great way to start your day…or finish it…I guess it depends on what time you are reading this.  Ok…how would you like to see an insanely adorable picture of my pup Lulu?  Here you go:

Huge thanks to everyone that came out to the Seattle Thunderbirds game this pastr Saturday.  The T-Birds smoked the Everett Silvertips 7-0, and all day the T-Birds helped the Ronald McDonald House raise money with their annual Hockey Challenge.  As always, they did a great job with the event as it was a fun day of hockey! 
Before the game a bunch of the former T-Birds and local media gathered for an autograph session…of course I had to grab a pic with Cool Bird!
 photo cool bird toppy me_zpse0kxaahr.jpg
Check out this motley crew of hockey folks!

I was lucky enough to be a part of the ceremonial puck drop…

As for the game…man was it a blast!  Our team, team Topshelf, wound up winning in a shoot out – thanks to the stellar coaching by Toppy…oh, and a little help from some of the former T-Birds on our team like Regan Mueller, Ryan Gibbons, and Yashar Farmanara!
Getting to spend time on the ice with some former T-Birds (as well as NHL’ers) is something that I’ll never forget… it was a blast having a guy like Brendan Witt coming down and shooting on me…sure he scored 2 goals on me, but it was damn cool to experience playing with a guy that was once the captain of the Washington Capitals…plus he is one cool dude.  It was great hearing his stories about living in Seattle back at the height of the Seattle music scene exploding with Nirvana, Alice In Chains, pearl Jam, and Soundgarden.

Here I am with a couple other T-Birds legends…Jamie Huscroft, and Lloyd Shaw!

STP's BLOG 02/20/15 "Russell Wilson's Message To The 12's"

Russell Wilson is the man.  I LOVED the video he put out about the ending of the Super Bowl.  He made a video message for all of the fans…and I have nothing but love for this fella…

Let’s get significant… Go Hawks!
On the flip side…one guy that doesn’t sound like he wants to get significant with Russell is former teammate, Golden Tate.  He was approached by TMZ…and at the end of this video the “reporter” brings up the rumors that Golden had an affair with Russell’s then wife (which led to the divorce and led to Golden not being re-signed).  Check it out…

I hope that we will see you tomorrow at the ShoWare Center for the T-Birds hockey game!  Toppy and I will be there, and we are taking part in the Hockey Challenge that happens after the game…Toppy will be coaching, and I will be playing goalie alongside some former T-Birds/NHL players…as well as Bill Wixey from Q13 and Chris Zasche, the bassist of The Head & The Heart.  Get info and tickets HERE!
Speaking of Chris…not only is a great dude, a great hockey player, and plays in an awesome band…it’s awesome that he showed love for the T-Birds when on David Letterman.

I’ve heard some crazy reason for being late before, but this one takes the cake.  This morning BJ was not here when the show started…so we started the show without him.  When he popped in, I had to ask him the million dollar question – “Where the hell were you?” His response…
“I came across some pictures of Jessica Biel on the Daily Beast…and lost track of time”


I mean…


Hahaha – that is a first.  I will have to remember this if we ever to a topic about the dumb reasons you or someone you know was late!

STP's BLOG 02/19/15 "Happy 20th Toppy"

How about this…Topshelf is celebrating 20 years working for the company!  Holy smokes…he hasn’t had to make a resume since the days of having to type it on either a type writer or a word processor…print it on one of those dot matrix printers…and actually have to mail it or drop the resume off!  Wow! 

One texter brought up a great point…

Remember when Topshelf helped Brian Williams cover the Gettysburg address?

Congrats to Topshelf…it’s amazing that this man it the epitome of a “company man” haha

STP's BLOG 02/18/15 "Pho Shizzle!"

Huge thanks to Luke Willson from the Seahawks for calling in.  I have to say...just hearing him talk about the Super Bowl and the team has made me, as a fan, even more excited for next season.  The Super Bowl is something that is still tough to think about...but his perspective really helped the "moving on" process!  He wrote an awesome blog about it on his new website... .  Read the blog HERE...while on the site, be sure to check out some of the sweet merch that he has for sale!

I am a very excitable person…I genuinely love when cool things happen and I will geek out about it.  For example…while driving around Renton yesterday…I saw this while waiting at a stop light!

Now no matter how excited I am…I don’t think I will ever come close to Jim Cantore of the Weather Channel.  Jim was in Plymouth, Massachusetts over the weekend, reporting on the snowstorm . . . and got WAY too excited about some lightning during the storm.  There were a total of six lightning strikes, and he went nuts every single time.  This is awesome!

STP's BLOG 02/13/15 "That Movie Is Out Now"

Big weekend for all of you 50 Shades Of Grey fans…the movie is out now.  Based on some tweets I have seen, the movie SUCKS!  The big question for us is when is that movie about BJ’s daughter, Sara, coming out?

I don’t know why this picture makes me laugh…but our pup Lulu has a toy…a Marshawn Lynch toy…and she somehow propped Beast Mode up against the wall…so when I got up this morning, this is what I saw!

 photo marshawn lynch toy_zps0udoiklb.jpg
There is a new TV show that you have probably seen the trailers's on NBC and it's called The Slap.  It's exactly what the title says... a mini-series that is about a guy that slaps an unruly kid, and the community falls apart because of it.  I haven't seen it yet, but Mono-Nick hipped us to another show that is loosely based off of this show....

Ok…I’m on to you Harvey!  I have a Family Feud theory (Steve Harvey is the host) that continues to occur on the show.  What is that theory?  In a nutshell…I believe that they are coming up with pre-written “shocking” answers for their contestants as a way to drum up attention for the show.  You can read my theory, with examples in a blog I wrote a couple months ago…read that BLOG HERE.

Yet again we have another example of a “shocking” answer that happened a couple days ago.  This one involves a Gerbil, and no… Richard Gere was not a contestant (waka waka)!
