Big day for Hawks fans on Tuesday! We finally get to see the new look for the Hawks. Yup…they are changing their jersey’s…if you didn’t know, Nike is now the official jersey maker for the NFL (it used to be Reebok), and 2 teams are making significant changes to their jersey’s for the new regime: The hawks are one of them, and the other is the Carolina Panthers. The Seahawks' new logo will be released Tuesday…rumor has it, the big change is the logo…in the past there were 2 blue stripes under the bird...now it will have a grey strip. The rumor is that this is how it will look:
BJ of course was losing his mind because he just bought 2 jersey’s next year. I promised him that when I win the Mega Millions tonight, I’ll buy him a new jersey…but don’t expect me in work on Monday! If you are living under a rock, Mega Millions is at 540 million bucks! I have never bought a lottery ticket until yesterday…and I bought 10. That’s 10 more chances of me being a millionaire than any other day!
So like I said…tonight's Mega Millions jackpot is up to a record $540 million, and it could end up higher. It went up $64 million yesterday alone. The numbers are picked tonight at 8 PM, so you have until 7:45 pm to purchase a ticket. If you take the lump sum, after paying taxes you'd be left with about $260 million. Hell as I type this…it’s now at $640 Million!!!!!!! We came across a story of what that would buy:
--100 of the world's most expensive cars: That's the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, which costs $2.6 million. (It's also the fastest street-legal car in the world, reaching a top speed of 267 mph.)
--Four of the most-expensive private jets: The Gulfstream G550 at $59 million.
--Tuition, room, and board for MOST of Harvard: There are 6,655 undergraduates paying over $52,000 a year. You could cover 4,938 of them.
--A hockey team: The NFL, NBA and MLB are still out of your price range, but the average NHL team is worth $240 million. In fact, the Phoenix Coyotes, Atlanta Thrashers, Buffalo Sabres, Tampa Bay Lightning, and St. Louis Blues all sold or were offered for sale for less than $200 million within the last few years. Lets buy the Coyotes and bring them to Seattle!
The Mega Millions jackpot is at a record high of 540 million dollars…if you win it…what would be your big purchase? Here are the texts:
If you win steve, i hope you buy a donkey bus
I would buy the bunny ranch all to my self!!
This is Buddy in covington, if I won the megs million, my big purchase would be, a large ranch an call whoe downs, it would be party central
My big purchase or purchases would be to pay the balance of all my close friends and families morgages
My first big purchase would be 200 acres with houses built for all my close friends and family. Oh ya with a rockin ass bar in the dead center of the property
I would buy the BJ Shea morning show to be in my bed room to wake up too.. You all would be just for me
I would buy a lifetime supply of pot.
Steve should take over the wwe franchise.
Have anthrax or maiden do a show at ny house to piss off my nosy neighbors
Big thanks to Edward Furlong for joining us! Ed was John Conner in Terminator 2…also in American History X, and my favorite of his films…Detroit Rock City!
Ed is in town filming a movie, and has actually become a Rock-A-Holic!!! He listens to our show and station every morning on the way into the set! The movie is called Matt's Chance, and it has Gary Busey, and Marshawn Lynch from the Hawks in it too!!
This weekend is Wrestlemania weekend…Sunday is the big day, and I can not wait! On paper…this has the making for the best Wrestlemnania in years! The big match is Rock Vs. Cena, and that has been a year in the making….I’m looking forward to seeing what these 2 pull off in the ring…I am positive the crowd will be hot for this one!!! My guess is that Cena wins…I’m feeling something shady will lead to his victory. Here are some of the other matches…and my predictions:
The Undertaker vs. Triple H. This is the rematch from last year where Taker beat HHH, but got his ass handed to him in the process. This will have a special guest ref…Shawn Michaels (Triple H’s DX brother). I think the Taker will win and go 20-0 for his streak…and retire! I think Shawn Michaels will interfere, but on behalf of the Undertaker…as there is the whole jealousy angle brewing between HHH & HBK.
Chris Jericho vs. CM Punk. They have been doing a great job creating a story for this match…Jericho has been attacking Punk’s straight edge lifestyle, and his family’s sobriety issues. It’s a battle to see who truly is the “Best In The World.” My vote…CM Punk has this one!
Randy Orton vs. Kane. I really don’t care about this match…I’ll probably be eating some food at that point…I say Orton wins.
Daniel Brian vs. Sheamus. I am stoked for this match…I love what Daniel Bryan is doing with his character…especially the dynamic with his girlfriend AJ…it’s a total Macho Man/Elizabeth Vibe….check this out:
My pick for this is Daniel Bryan…he is a great Heel champion, and it’s been a while since they have had one that has created this much heat from the fans.
Team Johnny vs Team Teddy. Also known as the match that gives a bunch of their popular wrestlers a shot at being in Wrestlemania. The team that wins, their “leader” (John Laurenitis and Teddy Long) will become the GM for both RAW and Smackdown. I pick Team Johnny…he’s actually doing a great job as a douche.
Maria Menounos and Kelly Kelly vs. Beth Phoenix and Eve Torres. 3 outta 4 girls in this match make us all the winner…for being able to watch em. I pick Kelly Kelly and Maria…as she is the sole “celeb” getting in the mix.
Big Show vs. Cody Rhodes. Cody has been doing a great job as of late…so my pick goes with him.
Today's video blog features something we got in the mail!
Huge thanks to Michael for making this awesome video based on my song for “Beat The Producer”:
This is so damn cool…Michael emailed this regarding the video:
Though I had to hear Steve tell me that I was a loser about a hundred times in the process, it was definitely worth it!
So sometimes we get into some stupid arguments on air…OK most of the time we do. But off the air…that’s when we have high brow conversations about politics, wine, and other worldly stuff…OK, I’m lying right there. Here is a sample of the type of stuff we argue about when the microphones are off….while a commercial for the upcoming Aerosmith concert played on air…they played a sample song in the commercial for Cheap Trick, as they are the opening band. They played this song:
My reaction to that was, “What the hell is this song…” and Toppy’s response was “It’s one of their biggest hits.” I then got on my soap box and said there is only one song that should be used to represent the music of Cheap Trick…and that’s “Surrender.”
Toppy tried to tell me that both of those songs are on an equal level…and that’s when the gloves came off. That’s crazy talk. Dream Police can’t even hold the jock strap of Surrender. Yes…see, we save the really dumb fights for off air.
The website Inc.Com, which is an ideas and resources site for small businesses, has come up with a list of the 5 things that people hate to hear from customer service…
1. "I'm Sorry, but That's Our Policy." Basically, they're just trying to get rid of you, and it's obvious.
2. "There's Nothing I Can Do." It's usually not true. At the very least, they can offer you a refund.
3. "Can You Hold for a Minute?" Chances are, you've already BEEN on hold, so they shouldn't leave you hanging without telling you when they'll be back.
4. "You'll Have to Go to Our Website." It's just one more way of saying there's nothing they can do… they should at least offer to email you a direct link to the page you're looking for.
5. "You'll Need to Talk to the Manufacturer." It's basically like saying they want to pass you off onto someone else.
Based on the top 5 things people hate to hear from customer service…what is your customer service horror story? Or if you are in the customer service industry…what is something that you hate that a customer will do to you? Here are the texts we got:
It makes me sooooo angry when they ask if you can hold then don't even wait for an answer! Pearl
i worked in customer service for 1.5 years. the thing that bugged me the most was the coustomers who would hit on me. most of the them were repeat coustomers too.
I had a customer guilt trip me into free service. She said her husband just died of cancer only to find out he was home when I got to their house. Happily married for ten years
I had customers come in with two year old product that they broke demanding that we return or exchange the item. Try being screamed at 1,000 times becaus e you won't take it back. Maybe if people went through that they would understand why customer service employees are always so angry.
I gave a customer a full refund after I admitted we were at fault. Over 800 dollars. He shook my hand said thank you and that he appreciated it. Went home and ripped my business a new one on yelp. Called me names and everything. Great customer!
I work in cs, and I can't stand it when a customer calls about something on their contract that they signed but was too lazy to read
I would like to give props to microsoft my xbox blew up because of an update hey sent me a better model and a year free of xbox live
According to data from the Consumer Electronics Manufacturing Association, within seven years on the market, over 60% of households had a boombox. No other product crosses the 60% mark. Here's the full top 10 . . .
2. CD player
3. DVD player
5. Portable CD player
6. Digital camera
7. Compact audio (Walkman)
8. Stereo color TV
9. Answering machine
10. Satellite TV
The gadget that no one adopted . . . and, really, people still aren't adopting, is the PC TV, using a computer to run their television. Color TV had the second-lowest adoption rate. DVRs are third-to-last.
Cell phones also did pretty poorly. Even though they're everywhere now, within seven years of hitting the market only 10% of households had one.
Tablets like the iPad, Blu-Ray players, and 3DTV are still too new to make this list.
Based on the fact that the Boombox is the gadget that Americans adopted the fastest …what is your all time favorite gadget?
Short of my iPod/iPhone, it would have to be my Gameboy, took that thing every where. Wish I still had it
My favorite gadget? The microwave. EF you oven.
Electric drums, I can jam all night
A gun and a bong!
My fave gadget was the sega genesis. Still have my original 16 bit plus controllers and games

Here is the same VLOG for the iPHONE gadget people.
Oh my goodness did I get some people’s panties in a bunch this morning. Mainly, one texter, Toppy, and BJ Shea. This morning the Mariners started off their 2012 season in Japan…as they played the A’s at the Tokyo Dome. The game started at 3 AM this morning, so during news I reported that the Mariners won the game 3-1 in the 11th inning! Well…I then got this text:
BJ do not tell us who won the mariners game you idiot some of us had to record it to watch later. Why would you ruin it for the people who can't stay up til 3 am
I thought this was beyond stupid…it’s the top Seattle sports story today, and I do a sports report…I HAVE to report on it. Well Toppy & BJ thought the guy made a point, and said that in the future I need to say “Spoiler Alert”…hell, Toppy even said that I shouldn’t even report on it at all. Am I hearing these guys right? Not report on the M’s win on the day it happened during my sports report??? That makes all the sense in the world…sarcasm right there. Thankfully I wasn’t alone on this island, as the texts poured in:
steve, iLm glad you talked about the mariners. i didn't even know they were playing . thank you
Recording live sports is LAME!!!
I'm on your side steve, thanks steve!
Gees.. Real fans like me and my boyfriend adjust our schedule and get up to watch the game!
Spoiler bitching for sports? What a whiny bitch
Spoiler alert for sports are you effn kidding! ?!
Screw them Steve - a true fan would get up and watch
If the real m's fans cared, they'd have gotten up like the other real fans down at the viewing party at safeco field.
F'em Steve! Sports are day of. It's not like all the games are in Japan. It's on you if you tape it. Just plow them.
Thanks steve for the update i was listening to ur news specifically for the mariners game!
I agree with steve quit catering to these whiners
STEVE!! REPORT PLEASE!! Spoiler alert is plenty good enough. I listen for your commentary on the sports stories too. So please dont stop! You guys rock!!
Yes give me the news a day later!!! That's stupid I'm with Steve
Toppy i look forward to steves sports report...to hell wit the dvr steve for prez dammit
I' with steve its a huge story that the m's actually won! Get off his arse!
If you don't want to hear the scores, you have to stay away from media. Some if us listen to hear the scores and highlights. Don't cater to that retard.
I do care but don't have a DVR so thanks for the score STP...Toppy and BJ sound like a couple little girls about this.
This is honestly just a small sample of the texts…and I didn’t purposely omit any pro-BJ/Toppy texts…there was not a single text, other than the original, that supported their argument!
A new survey by Hotwire.com found the majority of Americans haven't been to five of this country's major, important landmarks.
--72% of Americans have never visited the Alamo.
--65% of Americans have never visited the Grand Canyon.
--62% have never visited the Statue of Liberty.
--61% have never visited the Golden Gate Bridge.
--57% have never visited the White House.
A new survey says that the majority of Americans have NOT been to five of our country’s major landmarks…based on this…in your opinion, what is that one place that all American’s need to check out? Here are some of the texts we got:
Pearl harbor the site of our nations worst and proudest moment.
USS Arizona at pearl harbor, very moving
Steve's Mom's house isn't on that list? *NotLuke*
I put the Kennedy Ctr., Mount Rushmore and the Pearl Harbor memorial all ahead of the Alamo
YNP - Yellowstone national park via all entrances because each side is different.
Ground Zero, NY. Memorial
I agree with STP, the BunnyRanch needs to be a destination for every American

Auschwitz....No question. I met a local Auschwitz survivor and her story and descriptions will make your hairs stand up.
A helmet cam video of a 10-year-old girl named Zia trying her first ski jump at the Olympic Park in Utah is getting a ton of views on YouTube. The ramp she had to ski down was more intimidating than the actual jump, which wasn't that huge. But the build-up and how nervous she was are the reasons it has over a million hits. Here's video :
Based on this video, finish this sentence… “I’ll never forget the first time I did ________.” Here are the texts:
I'll never forget the first time I preformed in front of more then 3000 people art the house of blues in Chicago with my old band. There's nothing better them playing live. -Joey in Seattle
I'll never forget the first time I tasted that delicious peanut butter. Now I cant get enough of it! Love Lucy the producer in Puyallup.
As a 20yr old professional stuntman, I'll never forget the first time I did a 50ft highfall into an airbag. Theres no feeling like free falling
Bungee jumped. I felt invincible and went sky diving right after. This was during a vacation in Auckland, NZ.
I was a volunteer firefighter and I will never forget the first time I was able to go to my first real fire and use all my training.

Today's Video Blog is part 1 of our chat with Jason Mewes (Jay from Jay & Silent Bob). Jason and Kevin Smith will be at the Emerald City Comicon this weekend. Tickets are available at www.emeraldcitycomicon.com
Ahhhh we are back from a week off…it’s great to be back. If you are thinking we all did crazy stuff while on vacation…Vicky was sick, Rev was gassy, Nick was stoned, Toppy was doing unspeakable things in his bedroom, I was hanging with my pups, and BJ…ok, BJ went to Hawaii…that lucky jerk! He might have had Hawaii with an amazing view…but does his view compare to this?
Yup…that’s Lulu chilling in my jeans…crap why did I post this…I can smell the jokes coming!!!!!
Donald Trump resurrected his six-year feud with Rosie O’Donnell last week, when he gloated about "The Rosie Show" being canceled in an interview with "Fox and Friends". Trump said, "Well, I always knew that Oprah was smart. Frankly, that was just going to happen. I knew it immediately when they announced it. Rosie fails at everything. She had a variety show, it failed. I mean, I just don't understand . . . now somebody else, some moron will come and hire her again to do something else and that'll fail. At some point, let her rest. Let her go away. She'll never make it and I've said it for years. She'll never make it!”
Based on Donald Trump saying that Rosie O’Donnell “Fails at everything”, what was your biggest failure…or…what was your biggest success? Here are some of the texts we got!
My biggest success was finally being able to kick my dads ass, damn old man strength is tough to beat, my biggest failure is my life,
My bigest fail was when I was texting my friend about are planes for this week and I walked in to a handycap sign, it left a big red mark down the middle
Getting married (fail) then getting divorced (success)
Biggest success landing a 6 figure job and still doing it today without a college degree or any formal education relating to my job
I was a highschool drop out drug dealer. But I turned my life around, got a college degree at 27, and work as an accountant. Keep telling men to be accountable
I failed at wearing a condom, but succeeded at being a father
Biggest success: reaching the rank of sgt in the us army. Biggest failure: getting kicked out of us army a year later for pissing hot for pot 8 times
Bigst failur- bein alergic 2 peanutbuttr when my daddy luvs it! Signd lucy!
I failed, I used crunchy instead of creamy with Lucy. Steve
In Austria, a 56-year-old man . . . whose name wasn't released . . . was on unemployment. And he was in NO HURRY to stop the checks from rolling in by going back to work. Yesterday, he had an appointment with the labor office . . . and he knew if he went, they'd see he was healthy and able to get a job, but he did NOT want that. So he came up with a perfectly rational and logical plan . . . he grabbed his electric saw and cut off his own foot…HIS OWN FOOT! Then, for some reason, he threw his foot in the oven before he called for an ambulance. Doctors weren't able to reattach his foot. But for now he's still in the hospital and doesn't have to go get a job, so . . . mission accomplished?
That is slightly too extreme of a way to get out of work…but what about you? What ridiculous thing did you do or say to get out of work?
Told my boss i had a fugus on my junk he didnt beleave me so iw4ent a pic to them thousand isjaind muvptard and chly mix with guacumolie makes a grate infection
My brother wanted to go to a weekend concert with a new girlfriend...so he told his boss his best friend was in a bad accident then proceeded to tell them the friends daughter died and he needed to go to the funeral for the following weekend
I have "killed" off a few members of my family members and also went to work just trashed from the night before and my boss knew and didnt fire me.
I faked a mental break down to get out of a meeting
Guy called in and said his cat was decapitated and had to take it to the vet. Turns out he was drunk, go figure.
Today's Video Blog features something that Toppy got for his new house!
Yesterday we were talking about the greatest debut albums of all time, this all stemmed from Toppy saying that Van Halen’s first CD is one of the best debut albums of all time. BJ tried to say that Boston is the best…I say they are crazy…it’s easily Guns N Roses “Appetite For Destruction”! I would give honorable mention to Mother Love Bone’s Apple. Pearl Jam’s Ten, Faith No More’s We Care A lot, Weezer’s Blue Album, Elastica, and Metallica’s Kill Em All. We came across an article on Amazon.com that listed the top debut albums of all time.
Here is the Top 10:
1. Boy by U2
2. Birth Of The Cool by Miles Davis
3. The Velvet Underground & Nico by The Velvet Underground
4. Led Zeppelin by Led Zeppelin
5. Unknown Pleasures by Joy Division
6. The Piper At The Gates of Dawn by Pink Floyd
7. Bleach by Nirvana
8. Bob Dylan by Bob Dylan
9. Kill 'Em All by Metallica
10. Funeral by Arcade Fire
After doing a little digging…OK…I lie, Sgt. Hairclub emailed me these stats, here are the top selling debuts of all time…so BJ does have some merit in his argument in favor of Boston and their boring ass album. Here is the Top 10 selling debut albums of all time:
1. Boston -- 17 million
2. Alanis Morissette -- 16 million
3. Hootie & the Blowfish -- 16 million
4. Guns N' Roses -- 15 million
5. Backsteet Boys -- 14 million
6. Meat Loaf -- 14 million
7. Britney Spears -- 14 million
8. Whitney Houston -- 13 million
9. Jewel -- 12 million
10. Matchbox Twenty -- 12 million
So we had to ask…which album would you put on the list? Here are some of the texts:
Stone temple pilots - core
Cowboys from hell from Pantera and Pearl Jams Ten.
Likin Park's Hybrid Theory
Every song on Audioslave's debut was good enough to be a single. My favorite album of all time! –humbler
Rage against the machine
My name is. Slim shady Casey
Blind melon, Marcy playground ............. both were crazy good
Taylor swifts first album hands down!!!!!!
Mother love bone first and only!
Hands down, Facelift by Alice in Chains...
Jimi Hendrix Experience ...hands down ... A really game changer
NIN Pretty hate machine
Sublime 40oz to freedom
Black Crows-Shake Your Money Maker!!! Every song on that CD is awesome!!! Howdy
Did you know President Obama and his family have a dog named Bo? Well Mono-Nick hipped us to this, and it got him thinking...after spending so much time in the White House, Nick thinks that First Dog Bo has a lot to share if only he could talk. Here are Mono-Nick’s Top 3 Things That President Obama's Dog Would Say If He Could Talk:
--Sorry Hillary. I always confuse your cankles with fire hydrants.
--Good lord, dude. You can't even say "fetch" without looking at a prompter?!?
And the number 1 thing That President Obama's Dog Would Say If he Could Talk:
--No, I didn't make that stain. I think it's left over from the Clinton years.
Lots of stuff going on with the Hawks yesterday….They dropped Robert Gallery (which I am bummed about because he is bad ass, but injured a lot last year and expensive…not a good combo)…they lost John Carlson to free agency, rumor has it Matt Flynn is coming to town (back up QB for the packers that is the most talked about free agent QB that is not named Peyton)…but the big one…yesterday former Hawk Steve Hutchinson visited the team. He is a free agent, if you remember he left us 6 years ago to sign a huge contract with the Vikings after helping lead our team to a Super Bowl, and also he helped Shaun Alexander become the MVP running back he once was. I know he is older, 34, but I LOVE the idea of him coming back. Hutch is a leader, many say that he was the reason why Walter Jones was as good as he was, as he pushed him every game…and I do recall that once Steve left, Walt wasn’t the same. We have a great, young, “O – Line” …why not insert a guy that can lead and motivate them? C’mon Hawks…bring Hutch back to Seattle!
Last night my wife and I finally watched this week's episode of the Voice. Man I love that show…it’s so much better than any of those other talent based shows. What I love is that they have artists that are actually relevant in pop music right now as the mentors (Cee Lo, Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera, and Adam Levine). On the last episode, during the Battle Rounds (where 2 singers duet and their mentor has to pick just one to keep)… Lindsey Pavao & Lee Koch, both on Christina’s team, and both are very unique singers, did a duet to Nirvana’s "Heart-Shaped Box" . I found this to be pretty interesting…first off, I never expected a Nirvana cover on the show, and surely didn’t expect that it would be a song picked by Christina Aguilera. Secondly…before they “battle”, they meet with the mentor to go over the song, and the mentor brings another mentor in to help the singer…so for this song…Christina Aguilera and LIONEL RITCHIE were giving Lindsey tips on how to sing a Kurt Cobain song! If Kurt was able to witness this, I am guessing he would get a great laugh out of that! Needless to say, I really dug the performance, the music is haunting…and I dig how they are singing it. Check it out:
Speaking of Nirvana…here is yet another example of why Courtney Love is insane. Courtney Love is not happy with the most recent Muppets moviebecause they used “Smells Like Teen Spirit” without her “permission” . She actually said that they “raped” the memory of her late husband. Yes, Kermit violated Kurt. C’mon Coutney…shut up! I’m sure she was even more pissed when she saw that Dave Grohl made a cameo appearance in the flick. Here is a sample of the Muppet's redition of Smells Like Teen Spirit…good luck sitting through this whole version, it’s beyond annoying:
This story led to a fun chat this morning....
The most influential show in the history of television never finished a season among the 20 most popular programs in the Nielsen ratings. In its most popular season, "Hill Street Blues," which ran from 1981 to 1987, came in 21st place, yet according to a group of veteran TV critics and college professors who study the media, it was the TV series that most changed the direction of television programming. Critics said that Hill Street Blues, “paved the way for TV drama to grow up and be truly adult," and that it was, “the prototype for a serious complex view of inner-city crime." Man I HATED Hill Street Blues…it was so boring! I considered it the worst hour of my life each week when my parents would turn it on. It was so slow…granted I was not even 10 years old when it firs aired, but the only thing this show influenced…was for me to either sleep, or do better in school so I could be rewarded with a TV in my bedroom so I didn’t have to watch that snoozefest of a show!
Here are the next most influential shows chosen by the panel:
2. (tie) "I Love Lucy" -- This is the show that pioneered the multicamera approach to situation comedies.
2. (tie) "The Sopranos" -- Nobody had ever tried to make a show in which the protagonist was not merely unsympathetic, but actually evil.
4. "The Tonight Show" -- It established the model for late-night talk comedy programming still in use today.
5. (tie) "All in the Family" -- it managed to mirror all the tensions of life in America.
5. (tie) "Survivor" -- led to the reality boom of the last 12 years and paved the way for series like 'American Idol' and 'Dancing With the Stars.' "
7. (tie) "The Cosby Show" –It revived the situation comedy and for being the first series to feature a family headed by black professionals.
7. (tie) "60 Minutes" – Established the format for all TV newsmagazines to come.
7. (tie) "Friends" -- Panel members praised its fresh approach to ensemble comedy.
10. (tie) "The Today Show" -- It invented morning television.
10. (tie) "American Idol" -- this series demonstrated the enormous potential of the TV talent show.
So, Hill Street Blues was named the most influential television show of all time…what about for you? What TV show would you put on the list! Here are the texts we received:
Jersey shores, GTL every day.

Mr Wizard or McGyvar. Both showed you could do anything
The Simpons has to be on there, I'm a Family Guy fan but The Simpsons paved the way for prime time cartoons that are now a dime a dozen. - Diz in Seattle
My most influential show: Mystery Science Theater 3000. It's gotten to the point where I riff things in real life, like sporting events and concerts. -the DV
The brady bunch was awsome. It taught good values that have been lost in the programming we have today.
Full House gotta be Number 1 for me.... Nothing like a heart to heart talk from Danny Tanner

63-year-old Bob Caldwell ran the editorial section of a Portland newspaper called "The Oregonian" since 1995. He'd been with the paper before that since 1983. On Saturday, he died of a heart attack. So the next day, the paper ran an obituary for him, reporting that he'd been found in a parked car. But it turns out that's NOT what really happened. On Monday, they published a correction to the obituary with the REAL story: Bob died from a heart attack after hooking up with his 23-year-old mistress. They didn't stop there. ..they even reported HOW he met her: It was last year at Portland Community College, and supposedly he paid for her books and other expenses in exchange for sex. I can’t believe all of this is in his obituary? How much did this paper hate him??? No money exchanged hands when he died Saturday, so the police aren't charging her with prostitution. Bob is survived by his wife and three daughters. Wow…that is how his family found this out about him…holy smokes!!!!!
Based on this story…whether they are alive or dead…what is the craziest thing you have found out about someone you know? Or what is the craziest thing about you that others have found out? Here are the texts:
The craziest thing for me was when my ex showed up with a hog tie kit and wanted me to tie her up, I did of course!
I went to school with a guy that could do something to himself and would do so at parties..... Crazy!

The craziest thing I ever found about someone was that my neighbor hired a guy to kill his grandma for an inheritance and did twenty years –Chad
I learned something new and disturbing about Topshelf. I know…it seems like with Toppy, what can he tell us that would shock us by now, but when we were talking about Hines Ward’s DUI audio being released…Toppy mentioned that his teddy bear “Pookie” wears a Hines Ward jersey. The conversation continued like nothing strange was said…so I had to stop the train. “Pookie”? I had to question that everyone questions my relationship with my pup Lucy, but no one thinks it’s odd a man in his 40’s has a Teddy Bear…named…….POOKIE!!! And he dresses it in Steelers gear! I love this text we received:
Money, kids, and relationships are three of the most stressful things in life. But a lot of little things can add up too. The website Women’s Day came up with four hidden things that might be stressing you out every day. here they are:
1. Your Pet. If your cat or dog constantly wakes you up at night, destroys your furniture, or causes anxiety…this can lead to stress.
2. Your Bedroom. Studies have found that when your home is messy, you're more likely to be anxious, unhappy, and even have mild depression. Your bedroom should be a calm place where it's easy to relax. So it's the most important spot to keep clean.
3. Facebook. What your FRIENDS post can stress you out without you even realizing it. For example, if someone posts something about their promotion . . . and you just got CANNED . . . it can make you jealous, which makes you stressed.
4. The Light in Your Bathroom. How you see yourself first thing in the morning . . . and before you go to bed at night . . . can affect your self-esteem, which can affect your stress level. Regular fluorescent lights tend to make more wrinkles and blemishes show up. But you can buy compact fluorescent bulbs that have the same color temperature as the old-style incandescent bulbs . . . which is best for most people.
Based on these 4 things that stress people out…what about you, what random things get you stressed out? Here are some of the texts we got:
In 2006 I got struck by lightning... So I stress when I hear thunder... –joe
Washington state drivers really stress me out. It rains so much here you think you would be able to drive in it.
Reality tv Jess Snohomish
Not having medical insurance stresses me out.
Clutter and disorganization. I can go to certain stores without being set on edge.
Playing fifa on xbox live stresses me out. Its hard to be so awesome at xbox, but i get it done.
When my ex fiance leaves drawers wide open. Does she understand their purpose?!
A big stress is is when I wateing in line to check out and some old person is writing a check.
Sending you bitches text messages and never hearing it on the radio. Walt in Bremerton.
Technology. It moves too fast to really stay abreast. IT guy in Puyallup
I get stressed when I'm stuck in traffic and late for work
In 2006 I got run over by a semi and now I have horrible driving anxiety
I stress out when i see a full cabinet of peanut butter. Signed Lucy
On Friday, 26-year-old Jeremy Blair of Utah was watching the local news with his father and the news covered a story on a computer store burglary from last week. When they showed surveillance tapes of the robbery, Jeremy's dad recognized that his son . . . who was sitting next to him . . . was one of the robbers. After a serious conversation, Jeremy agreed to turn himself in. So his dad drove him to the local jail, and he confessed. Jeremy is facing charges of burglary and criminal mischief for stealing about $6,500 worth of merchandise, and doing $2,500 worth of damage.
Based on this story of a dad finding out that his son was a thief…finish this statement… “I can’t believe my kid did _____.” Or… “My parents can’t believe that I did _____.” Here are the texts:
My folks can't believe I got kicked out of school for three months about a Pepsi and coke prank on a business marketing teacher who used to work for coke
My parents can't believe I didn't save myself for marriage LOL....o wait, I did.../forever alone
I can't believe my 2nd grader put a kindergardner in a head lock on the bus!
Got pulled over in my drive way drunk on a riding lawnmower with beer a stole, I was a stupid teenager , rock on bitcholas
I cant believe my daughter pooped in my husbands eye
When i was 14 i was caught shoplifting at the northgate mall. Mall security called my mom and whe i got home i got the beating of my life from my dad amd was given 40 hrs of comminity service by my parents. The judge did nothing because he saw how pissed my parents where and told me that im better off going home and getting a "whoopin" than going to jail and f'ing up my record....mu parents also signed me over to the military when i tirned 16 so id have to leave for boot camp a week after high school graduation. That straightened me riht up and ive never stolen a thing sice then.....not even an office pen
My parents can't believe that I am a heroin addict and facing 8 counts of trafficking stolen property, which is a class c felony. I used to be straight a 's in high school, never got in trouble so it was like a big slap in the face to them.
My parents can't believe I became a pole dancer. -Jeni
Today's video blog features my pup Lulu...yet again, she can not win every battle!!!
This could be my favorite for of intimidation ever. New Orleans Hornets Center Chris Kaman decided to get in the head of their opponents in the most gangster way ever! Kaman posted a photo of himself holding a dead cat with the tweet “Guess who we r playing tonight?” The Hornets play the Bobcats tonight in New Orleans. Check it out:
I’m not a fan of the NBA…but now I really hope that the Hornets wind up being bought by Chris Hansen and brought to Seattle…this guy is nuts…I would love to have him as a Sonic! I love that he is sporting a NIKE “Just Do It” shirt!
There's something called the "Walk Away Number”…it's the amount of money it would take for you to quit your job on the spot, with nothing new lined up. There's no right answer, but when you think about it and answer honestly, it can give you some serious insight into what you really want out of life. For some people, it would just be enough money to cover bills for a year or so until they find a better job. Other people want enough money to start a business, and some people want enough to take a two-year vacation. Yahoo asked a few people what their Walk Away Numbers would be. They heard numbers as low as $47,000 from a 24-year-old Starbucks barista, to $750,000 from a 54-year-old marketing consultant.
Based on a story about how much money it would take for you to walk away from your job…what is your “Walk Away” number? (Be reasonable) What would you then do? Here are the texts we received:
$30000. Enough to get me out of debt get a new car. And pay rent for a year so I can get into school and spend time with my daughter
20,000$ I'm 24 been in the army almost 5 years I figure 20g is enough to put me through school and start a new career
I'm twenty five and have the opportunity to purchase a multi million dollar company in the next ten years. I wouldn't walk away for less than one million.
Julie from Arlington. I am 32 and my number would be $600K.
$143,682. The loan balances on my car and home, after that I'll work a brain dead job!
It would take 250 thousand to walk away from my career as a paramedic/firefighter. That would be enough for me to go to medical school and then make real coin
I'm 26 working security at a courthouse and would totally walk away for 5 grand.
100 bucks my job sucks
My walkaway number: $200000. That's living expenses for2 1/2 years plus the cost for my masters degree--Jason
32 y.o., 70 k and I walk...:)
This email led to a fun topic...
Hey guys...on Friday you were talking about what is a guy's biggest fear. My biggest fear is migets, or little people, or whatever you call them. Seriously, one time I saw one at a bar...freaked out, and went to another bar. My friends think I am insane. I can't be alone...I'm thinking it'll be fun to hear what the other Rock-A-Holics biggest fears are!
Vic in Kent
The story Vic is talking about is a new survey by Glamour Magazine that states that only 5% of men say commitment is their greatest fear. Here's what beat it out:
--36% of men are afraid of poverty.
--23% are afraid of death.
--13% are afraid of failing at work.
--13% are afraid of never finding love.
--And 10% are afraid of speaking in public.
Based on Vic's email....Guys...and gals...what's your biggest fear? Here are some of the texts we received:
Aliens!!!!!! -Rock Girl Valerie
Saw movie IT, clowns were terrifying after that
I fear Steve will die of rabies from Lucy

Huge thanks to everyone for coming out to the Tulalip Casino for our 2012 Meet the Rock Girls Party. Wow…the girls looked awesome, and the place was packed to see how awesome they looked…so much so that people had to be turned away! Just to give you a taste of what it was like…check this out:
I also learned a valuable lesson…if there are photographers at an event…do not raise your arm in the air to say “raise your hand if you love the Rock Girls” …
Taken out of context, the pic inspired some fine Facebook comments:
David: Adolf the Producer?
Colby: Is he saluting hitler?!
Patrick: Is Steve in the SS?
Jon: heil BJ?

Last week, a waiter known only as Jon, was so overwhelmed by $200 tip that Peyton Manning left him on a $739.58 check, that he posted the receipt online. Unfortunately, the server’s boss was not quite as impressed and kicked the waiter to the curb. Van Eure, owner of the Angus Barn in Raleigh, said, “This goes against every policy we have…It's just horrible." Despite a red stamp stating that 18 percent gratuity was already included, Manning generously slapped an extra $200 on the total for the waiter.
Based on this waiter posting Peyton Manning’s receipt online…finish this sentence… “Looking back on it…I totally deserved to be fired for doing __________!” Here are some of the texts:
Hey BJ, I totally deserved be fired from my job at a self service dog wash place for starting a water fight using the dog tubs' hoses. It was pretty fun ~until my boss walks in and takes a jet stream of water to the face. Me and 2 other employees were promptly fired.
There's a guy at my work who fell asleep during the most important audit of the year in front of the auditor and he's still working here
Should have been fired for doing my bosses daughter on the job...young and dumb..but don't regret
I did apartment maintenance for a complex and I used to go nap in vacant apartments whenever I finished work orders early. Got caught, fired and totally deserved it
Hooking up with the hot receptionist that the owner had a thing for. Haha sorry Kevin you douche it was worth it.

Babble Dot Com, which is a website for parents, polled their female browsers and collected the most popular excuses they use to get out of sex. Here they are:
1. Can it wait until after Real Housewives? We can't possibly focus on anything until we know if Vicki and Tamra are on the outs.
2. Don't you just want to talk? Sometimes it is just nice to talk.
3. I haven't taken a shower. Dirty girl = No dirty girl in the bedroom.
4. I just took a shower. I was too dirty so I took a shower, and now I'm so clean. Let's not ruin it with sex.
5. I'm so tired.
6. I have a headache.
7. I'm so fat right now. We know guys don't care if we're fat right now but we care.
8. I haven't shaved.
9. I'm too cold.
10. Let's just snuggle. Is there anything better than cozying up to your partner and falling asleep?

After 14 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, Peyton Manning was released yesterday. The Hawks were one of the first teams to reach out to him about signing with Seattle…man that would be so damn awesome. I know that some people aren’t feeling that way, but Peyton at half speed is still better than T-Jack. I could smell a great season with the O-Line we have, the fierce defence we have, Beast Mode, Sidney Rice….and Peyton Manning!!!! Granted, Rice will have to pick a new number, as you have to givbe #18 to Manning!!!!
Peyton held an emotional press conference and said goodbye. Here is the press conference:
During Peyton Manning’s emotional press conference, Peyton Manning looked back on his career and said to the fans, quote, “I truly have enjoyed being your quarterback”…based on that statement…looking back on your own life, finish this statement “I truly have enjoyed doing _______.” Here are some of the texts we received:

If you saw something on Facebook yesterday about the 30-minute YouTube video "Kony 2012" . . . you're not alone. It was made by a non-profit group called Invisible Children, and they specifically intended for it go viral . . . big time.
Here is the video:
It's about Joseph Kony, a crazy Ugandan warlord in charge of the Lord's Resistance Army. He's forced over 66,000 children to fight in a delusional campaign of terror against the people of Uganda for over 20 years. The video illustrates how Kony kidnaps kids and uses them as child soldiers and sex slaves.
As of this morning, the video had gotten over 32 million views in only two days. The video asks for donations, but some people are a little wary of the group behind. Many articles have come out questioning the Invisible Children Organization.
Wil Wheaton posted an article from The Daily What which states:
The organization behind Kony 2012 — Invisible Children -- is an extremely shady nonprofit that has been called ”misleading,” “naive,” and “dangerous” by a Yale political science professor, and has been accused by Foreign Affairs of “manipulat[ing] facts for strategic purposes.” They have also been criticized by the Better Business Bureau for refusing to provide information necessary to determine if IC meets the Bureau’s standards.
Additionally, IC has a low two-star rating in accountability from Charity Navigator (an independent charity evaluator) because they won’t let their financials be independently audited.
Only 31% of all the funds they receive go toward actually helping anyone. The rest go to line the pockets of the three people in charge of the organization, to pay for their travel expenses (over $1 million in the last year alone) and to fund their filmmaking business (also over a million).
The United States is already plenty involved in helping rout Kony and his band of psycho sycophants. Kony is on the run, having been pushed out of Uganda, and it’s likely he will soon be caught, if he isn’t already dead.
I found all of this fascinating! It is amazing to see how people who aren’t normally politically active are all of a sudden an activist for this. God forbid you question the video to them, they lose their minds…but I don’t question the content of the video…I applaud anyone trying to get the word out, but you have to question the charity…especially after all of this news comes out. The film is good, granted…I would rather watch WWE RAW, but it was a powerful film for sure. Lesson learned…if you want people to get involved…toss some Mumford and Sons into the mix! I say screw this movement…lets do Bronie 2012, and stop the My Little Pony movement where adult men find it “funny” to be a fan of that cartoon!
When BJ posted the video on Facebook…he was flooded with comments about the KONY video…here are a couple examples of what was posted:
Eric H.: People need to know the truth about this. It is amazing how blindly people are falling for this, spending $225 for the KONY 2012 kit, that will do no good what so ever, when that money would be better suited here in the local community. People have good hearts, they just need to research before openning their wallets.
Darren C.: Say what you will- but if this video gets one entitled American to reconsider how bad their life really isn't, and to deter their mind from Jersey Shore for thirty minutes... then its worth it to me. You don't have to open your wallet, but at least your eyes.
Mark G.: Anyone else remember Free Tibet? Everyone will jump on this bandwagon for "a minute" and this guy will die (or not). It is horrible what he is doing but I hate the "atrocity of the moment" mentality.
Robert Y.: Are people just now realizing that there's evil people in the world and bad things happen? We can't afford to constantly police the globe and I'm gonna hate to see the state of the country when our reason for sending our troops somewhere is "well there's some bad stuff happening."
This morning we received a few texts about this video…
Hey BJ, although it's a good cause, America does not need to involve itself in another war, we made a mess of Iraq and Afghanistan and might also go into Iran.
Invisible Children gives money to the Ugandan government. The government of Uganda is responsible for genocide of homosexuals, and also used child solders.
In response to this explosion of interest about the Kony 2012 film, there have been hundreds of thousands of comments in support of the arrest of Joseph Kony and the work of Invisible Children. However, there have also been a few pieces written that are putting out false or mis-leading information about these efforts.
This statement is our official response to some of these articles and is a source for accurate information about Invisible Children’s mission, financials and approach to stopping LRA violence.
Financial statements from the last 5 years, including our 990, are available at www.invisiblechildren.com/financials. The organization spent 80.46% on our programs that further our three fold mission, 16.24% on administration and management costs and 3.22% on direct fundraising in FY2011. Invisible Children is independently audited every year and in full compliance with our 501 c 3 status.
Charity Navigator gives our Programs its highest rating of 4 stars. Our Accountability and Transparency score is currently at 2 stars due primarily to the single fact that Invisible Children does not have 5 independent voting members on our board of directors—we currently have 4. We are in the process of interviewing potential board members, and we will add an additional independent member this year in order to regain our 4-star rating by 2013.
Participation in BBB’s program is voluntary— we are choosing to wait until we have expanded our Board of Directors, as some questions hinge on the size of our Board. The current Board is small in size and reflects Invisible Children’s grassroots foundation. Invisible Children has now reached a juncture of success that has astonished even its greatest supporters. While it is important to retain a presence on the Board that reflects Invisible Children’s early beginnings, we also are working to realign the structure this year.
The website Guyism just did an article about the things guys wish that their woman was into. They write, quote, “What men want in a woman really is just a great companion; someone to enjoy the things that we enjoy alongside us or at least cheer us on while we do them.”
Here are the 7 things guys wish every woman was into:
7. Sport Eating - guys would love it if their girlfriends joined them in getting fat as hell at a buffet or a food festival.
6. Video Games
4. Sci-Fi/Fantasy -- There's something about a chick that likes science fiction or fantasy that floors a lot of us guys.
3 Cosplay-- short for "costume play", it’s a type of performance art in which participants don costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea.
1. Oral Negotiations, “Rear Window”, Threesomes, or Something Else Dirty
Based on the 7 things that guys wish that women were into…Guys… What do you wish all women were into? Ladies, what are you into that surprises men? Here are the texts we got:
I wish my GF was into video games. And BTW I do all the cooking too... Kirk Federal Way
Men r always shocked when I tell them im in 2 porn!!
Sports, just being able to hold down a lil conversation. Not all dumb with no clue.
I wish I could find a girl that was into cars and enjoys working on them like me
The one thing that suprises guys that Im into is cars. ~Tori in Kingston~

Today's Video Blog we check out the latest app that people are going nuts for...Draw Something!
We found our new obsession! Draw Something is a Pictionary-like mobile game for the iPHONE and Android that's gone from being utterly unknown to pulling in more than six million downloads to date. The secret to Draw Something's massive success? It's pretty simple, really: it's ridiculously fun to play. Basically, Draw Something is a word guessing game using drawings as clues. Say you're playing against your friend Bob—Bob starts by choosing from three words, which range in difficulty, then Bob has to make an attempt at sketching the word on his smartphone or iPad. Once he's done, you have to try and guess what the word is by pulling from a pool of scrambled letters. The best part is that you get to see a playback of Bob's drawing, as if you're watching it happen in real time.
For me, my obsession is High Noon! Love that game…it’s the wild west where your iPHONE is your gun! My other obsession is Wrestlefest! Yest the old school WWF Video Game is now an app…they have to old characters like Big Boss Man & Macho Man Randy Savage, but they also have current guys like CM Punk & Cena. It costs a couple bucks, but it’s a blast to play! Check out the pix of the game:
So we asked the Rock-A-Holics…What internet game are you addicted to? Here are some of the texts:
Life Is Crime. I'm on that stupid thing 5 or 6 times a day!

So I have a new video of Lucy & Lulu battling…this time they have a mediator…Sal the Squirrel. Enjoy my strange breathing sounds while watching this:
Keanu Reeves has read the script for the third "Bill and Ted" movie, and he digs it. He says, "Yeah, we have a script. We're trying to put it together. It's a good script too.” Co-star Alex Winter Tweeted, "Script done? Check. We love it? Check. Green light? Working on it!" He also said: “Haven’t had a job since Bill & ted…Check” OK he didn’t say that, but seriously…would Alex Winter turn down the role if the script was bad? What the hell has he been up to? If it’s a paying job, the script is perfect Alex! The first flick, "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure", hit theaters in 1989. The sequel, "Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey", came out in 1991.

This morning we talked about an 11 year old that might face charges for using a Pop Tart as a weapon. He threw it at his mom, hit her in the face, and she had to go to the hospital. I questioned how a Pop Tart could hurt you that bad...so we put it to the test!!
This is pretty shocking if it’s true…The body of Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden was not buried at sea, according to leaked emails of intelligence firm Stratfor, as revealed by WikiLeaks. Stratfor’s vice-president for intelligence, Fred Burton, believes the body was, “bound for Dover, [Delaware] on [a] CIA plane” and then “onward to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology”. The archive was obtained by the hacker group Anonymous, which successfully attacked one of the firm’s servers. More than 5 million emails were apparently stolen. Stratfor is a US-based intelligence firm called the “shadow CIA” by some media.
If this story is true, the fact that Osama Bin Laden was not buried at sea is pretty shocking…based on that…finish this sentence… “I was shocked when I found out _________.” Here are the texts we got:
When i found out Betty Crocker wasn't a real lady!
I was shocked when I found out geddy lee from rush was a man
I was shocked when I realized the word "Ewok" is never said once in the Star Wars
movies. The origins of the word lay be forever buried in my childhood.
I was shocked to find out Thrill from the mens room is Black.
I was shocked that Steve got me crunchy instead of creamy. –Lucy
I was shocked when Steve ordered a 3 year supply of peanut butter from my company. That poor dogs cholesterol!
I was shocked when I found out that the bird was greater than or equal to the word -Pancho-
I was shocked 2 minutes ago to find out s t p believes everything the government tells us. is there anything more naive? mike on 167
I was shocked to find out my dad got a sex change

I was shocked when I found out my exfiance cheated on me and got the girl
pregnant. Needless to say our relationship was over.
The website Guyism recently came up with a list of things that we must part ways with in post college life.
6. Skateboards. Unless you’re somehow one of the select few making a living doing it, it’s time to put that skateboard deep in your closet and let it collect dust with your Legos until you have kids who are old enough to start riding it.
5. Dane Cook CDs. Once you graduate, it’s probably best to put these bad boys up for sale on eBay.
4. Scotch-taped Posters. There comes a time in every man’s life where he should attempt to class himself up.
3. Picture Collage. They’re all the photos of all of the people from high school that you were supposed to be best friends forever with… If you really must hang onto them, put them in a box in the closet.
2. Mini-Fridge. Anything “mini” needs to go. After the dorms, you should graduate to a place that will allow enough space for full-sized things.
1. That Empty Bottle of Jager on Your Mantel. Drinking is still socially acceptable, but saving the evidence of your binge and toting it as a trophy just isn’t.
What's the item that your significant other refuses to get rid of that you hate? What item of yours does your significant other hate, that you refuse to part with? Here are the texts:

Today's Video Blog is part 2 with the super funny Jim Jefferies!
Friday night was AWESOME!!! I got to go to that Shinedown private show, which turned out to be at The Triple Door in Seattle. There were less than 100 of us, and Brent and Zach from Shinedown posted up at the bar, and played a few songs, acoustic, for all of us. I was literally 10 feet from them…no stage…just a small PA, a guitar, and Brent’s awesome voice.
It felt like we were at an open mic, and Shinedown showed up. If you are bummed you missed it…through the beauty of the internet…here is the whole show…song by song:
They started the set off with one of my faves…”Sound Of Madness”:
Here they are playing “45”:
Here they are playing “If You Only Knew”:
Here is “Second Chance”, done acoustic:
Here is the song I danced with my mom at my wedding…their version of “Simple Man”:
They finished the set with an acoustic version of their new song, Bully:
Friday night was also cool for another reason...Friday Night Smackdown! Did you watch it? You might have seen me and my Donkey brotehrs on TV, especially when Randy orton & Daniel Bryan mixed it up outside of the ring:
Jake Lloyd is the kid that played Anakin Skywalker in "The Phantom Menace" says that he will never act again because kids were mean to him in school after starring in that role! Jake, who turns 23 today says, "Other children were really mean to me. They would make the sound of the light saber every time they saw me. It was totally mad. My entire school life was really a living hell...and I had to do up to 60 interviews a day." He also reportedly destroyed all his "Star Wars" memorabilia…although he does appear at sci-fi and comic book conventions now and then. Oh the poor kid! I’m sorry, if I was in a huge film like that, I wouldn’t care if people made fun of me…I would simply say, “Suck It – I’m Anakin bitch!”
Regardless…Jake says he will never act again, based on this…finish this sentence: “I will never do ______ again.” Here are the texts we received:
I will never take my shirt off in public again because of how much body hair I have. I'm not even fat or chubby, just hairy enough to be ridiculed for it.
I will never do peyote again. I tripped for 36 hours straight, blacked out, and came to in my parent's car on the way to rehab.

Never letting a girlfriend hook up with another girl again. Just got dumped and I'm pretty sure she is going lesbian now. -B

2. Missing work to care for them.
3. Changing diapers.
4. Washing clothes.
5. Limiting social activities to care for their kids.

Bummer day for us over 35 (or around 35)…Davey Jones died from a heart attack at the age of 66. Many people in their 20’s are probably thinking..”Who?” Which makes me feel like I am getting older by the minute, but Davey was the man! He was in the Monkees! I grew up watching re-runs of that sit-com…I loved that show!!! It’s funny, they were band made for a TV show, but they actually wound up having hits like “I’m A Believer” & “Last Train To Clarksville”…for me though…it was all about the theme song and the TV intro that accompanied it!
CareerBuilder.com surveyed employers about the most common mistakes people make at job interviews. Here's what you want to avoid:
1. Answering your cell phone, or texting during the interview.
2. Appearing uninterested in the job or the company.
3. Dressing inappropriately.
4. Coming off as arrogant.
5. Saying negative things about your current boss or previous job.
Career Builder Dot com listed the most common mistakes people make at job interviews….what about you? When have you or someone you know screwed up an interview? When did an interview go wrong? What happened? Here are the texts we received:
Once, I was interviewing a woman for a professional job in HR. She showed up in mis matched clothes, and actually kicked her shoes off during the interview.
My fiance went to a job interview at a mall a couple years ago instead of doing the interview, she chickened out and ended up buying something and leaving instead

I screwed up an interview by not keeping my eyes off of her huge chesticles. – Jason

Fell asleep once during the interview and still got hired
At an interview for Microsoft Store, I pulled out my iPhone.
I was being interviewed for a job when I sneezed and a big flem ball landed on the interviewers lips and chin he jumped out of his seat and kinda freakedout wiping off and then realizing it was on his hand he wiped it on his pants and it looked like he had some happy juice on his pants!
At a job interview in Seattle, making three times her current salary, one of my girl friends was asked, "Tell me something that might surprise us about you." and she said, "Like what? That I used to be a man?" We still tease her about that!
