Short blog today as we spent the day hanging with all of the generous Rock-A-Holics at Harris Ford Lincoln in Lynnwood at Rock Out Hunger. Bring one grocery bag of non-perishable food and you’ll get one ticket to see Uproar Festival on September 22nd at White River Amphitheater. All donations will be given to Northwest Harvest. This is one of my favorite things to be a part of, as over the last five years Rockaholics have help feed 39,000 Families.
If you needed extra incentive…our hot Rock Girls are there collecting food from you!
Today's Video Blog features a few gifts we recieved...mainly to celebrate Vicky B's Birthday (yesterday), and BJ's birthday (Saturday).
Yesterday I shared how excited I am for the Hawks season…well, I am not the only one in my household that’s excited…after a visit to Petsmart, Lulu decided to show off that she is the 12TH Pup!
After posting this picture on Facebook…I got this comment:
Julius -- That is bad ass! Lulu should raise the 12th man flag!
In the last week, we have come across three stories of public figures saving people’s lives.
PRINCE WILLIAM and his Royal Air Force Search and Rescue team saved a drowning girl off the coast of Wales a little over a week ago. The 16-year-old girl and her 13-year-old friend were body-boarding when they got caught in a riptide and dragged out to sea. The younger girl was rescued by a surfer, but the older girl swallowed water and was slowly going under. Prince William's team had just landed its helicopter after completing routine exercises, so they were able to jump right back in and get there in just 38 seconds.
A couple weeks ago, actor THOMAS HADEN CHURCH was eating at a restaurant in Los Angeles when a man at another table started choking. Church rushed over and performed the Heimlich, saving the guy's life.
56-year-old Jim Joyce is an umpire in the Major Leagues. He's the guy who missed a call two years ago and cost a pitcher a perfect game. Last week, he was getting ready to work a game between the Miami Marlins and Arizona Diamondbacks in Phoenix, when a stadium employee had a seizure and collapsed. Jim remembered his high-school CPR course . . . and got the woman breathing again and saved her life.
Based on these stories of people saving someone’s life…when have you saved someone’s life? Of when did someone save your life? Here are the texts we received….
My wife pulled me out of our car before it exploded in our roll over accident. Jon in Redmond
Our neighbor overdosed on heroin, my dad and I ran over there and did CPR and got his heart beating again. saved his life, right after he got out of the hospital he started shooting up again.
In 8th grade a girl fell off a tall ladder and I caught her. She would have landed right on her head on the cement... years later, this got me laid with her.... –G
I saved 6 people from a powerful riptide at Pismo Beach when I was 16. Got a mayoral commendation for it. - nick in oak harbor
I saved my son's life when he was 3 . he was sitting at the breakfast table eatin a piece of bacon he didn't chew it up enough and tried swallowing it . he began to choke because he couldn't breathe. I had to stand him up in the chair and give him the Heimlich to get it out . he's 11 years old now and still loves bacon
Two years ago i saved the life of a burglar by not pulling my trigger! I called the police instead
My dad saved me from drowning in lake chelan when i was about 4. He just passed away in may after a 13 year battle with lymphoma. What a great memory i have of him being a superhero!!
My husband credits me with saving his life when he showed me his "angry" testicle and I freaked out. I sent him to the doctor the next day and because of that the cancer was caught in time.
Today's Video Blog features part 2 of our chat with our bud Craig Gass (part 2)...Craig is at Dave's of Milton this weekend taping his first comedy album! Go to Davesofmilton.com for details on the show.
So I am not a sports genius, I don’t obsess over stats etc…but I am a fan of football. I love watching football. And on Friday I officially became excited for this upcoming season for the Hawks. I watched the future star of the Seahawks, Russell Wilson, light up the Kansas City Chiefs 44-14. I know it’s preseason, and I’m coming from a place as a fan…but I was all about Matt Flynn being the starter, and after watching “Russell-Mania” run wild in the pre season, how can you not be excited about this kid: 35 of 52 for 464 yards in 3 pre-season games…5 TD’s, and a 119.4 QB rating, which is the best in the league. For those that feel bad for Flynn…I’m sorry, but I don’t feel one bit bad for him…he has a 19 million dollar contract, 10 million guaranteed, and his woman is Miss Louisiana 2009…oh, and he has the best seats in Century Link field to watch our Hawks (hopefully) dominate the NFC West! Get used to seeing this guy leading the hawks for years to come…”Russell-Mania” running wild!
Over the weekend I got to do something the is a huge obsession for Mono-Nick…Disc Golf. He has been passionate about it for quite some time now…and our tattoo artist, Tony Mitchell, is a big fan too. I was heading to Tony’s shop – Tony’s Tried and True Tattoo in Port Orchard, and he texted me to see if I wanted to try Disc Golf before we start…I said sure, and I am glad I did…what a blast! Granted I sucked…but I had a moment of decent play, and all in all I get the passion for the sport. After we played 9 “holes” …we went to his shop, and got closer to completeing my sleeve on my left arm…we did this on the upper arm:
It turns out a lot of us still have irrational superstitions that make us avoid flying on Friday the 13th. Kayak.com found that flights departing on a Friday the 13th are 20% cheaper than on other dates, because of so much less demand. And a survey last year found people have OTHER flying superstitions too. 12% of people say a prayer before they fly, 9% HAVE to touch the plane before they get on, and 7% bring a good luck charm along. Unfortunately . . . or fortunately, depending on how superstitious you are . . . there isn't another Friday the 13th until September of next year.
Thanks to Superstition, you can fly for a huge discount on Friday the 13th…based on this…what is your superstition? Here are the texts we got:
I'm like Steve. I walk under ladders, spill salt, break mirrors, and let my girlfriend's black cat walk in my path. Living life on the edge.
don't know why but i knock on my steering wheel when i see a car pulled over with a flat tire or something. Kind of like knocking on wood
Me and my dad make my mom leave when the seahawks are playing because when she does we win!!
I don't cut my fingernails, or whistle, at night. It's a Filipino superstition.
I kiss my fingertips (like when you're going to blow kiss) and then tap the plane as I enter. So I'm one that 9%!
I do touch the plane before i fly! I didnt know other people did that too! I usually kiss my finger tips and touch the side upon entering and say its gonna be a good flight
I won't talk about projects I have auditioned for until I hear if I booked it or not. Afraid I will jinx it. –Bjorn
Wow...didnt know others did it. I touch every plane b4 I get on. Usually just brush the door frame as I enter. Hope is if somethings going to go wrong youll get a sign from touching the plane.
Gramma Genie tought me at a very young age that if I find a penny on the ground to put it in my left shoe for luck . . . To this day I will look like a fool but I'm picking that penny up and it goes in my shoe. Rock on guys!
Today's Video Blog features our bud Craig Gass...Craig is at Dave's f Milton this weekend taping his first comedy album! Go to Davesofmilton.com for details on the show. In this clip, he shares a story about Tracy Morgan that was too "hot" for the airwaves...you'll get to hear what didn't make it on the air!
Josh Androsky is a comedian in Los Angeles, and recently he and his friends got drunk, took mushrooms and attended a taping of "The Price Is Right" hoping for one of their names to be called. Josh’s name was called…and you can watch his appearance here:
I don’t know how he did it…I would have lost my mind, and probably cried or something. I could just piucture it:
Drew: “Steve, what is your guess the Price of this vacation?”
Me: “I’m going to guess goat, and your hands are melting Drew…make it stop!”
I went online and I read Josh’s tale about what happened…here is an excerpt:
My favorite moment of the whole show was actually cut out for TV. When I first told Drew I was a Skateboard Rabbi, everyone started laughing, but the stage manager started scribbling furiously on a piece of paper, and he held it up and it just said REALLY RABBI? so then Drew starts pressing me, he goes all f*****g Frost/Nixon. "How do you incorporate skateboards into Judiasm, Joshua?" and i just pulled a line outta my a** and said... Well, Drew. We go to local high schools and try to turn Religious Extremism into Religious X-TREMEism!" and then I think I did an air guitar solo. so yeah. I'm not a rabbi, just another Jewish comedian with glasses and a f*****g beard.
The big news today is that Lance Armstrong has decided to give up fighting the doping charges that have dogged him for years, saying, "Enough is enough." But he's NOT admitting guilt. He's just saying the cards are so stacked against him, he'll never have a fair shot at clearing his name. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency said last night that they will strip Armstrong of the seven straight Tour de France titles he won from 1999 to 2005, and be banned from competitive cycling for life. Armstrong posted a long, angry letter on his website saying that the Agency's investigation of him is, "an unconstitutional witch hunt." He added, "The toll this has taken on my family and my work for our foundation and on me leads me to where I am today . . . finished with this nonsense." He also mentioned the fact that he's passed HUNDREDS of tests over the years, and that's STILL not good enough for them. He said, "Whatever they asked for I provided. What is the point of all this testing if, in the end, USADA will not stand by it?"
So Lance Armstrong has decided to stop fighting the charges that he used Performance Enhancing Drugs, but still says that he is not guilty….Finish this statement… “Nobody believes me when I say I haven’t done _____.” Or.. “Nobody believes me when I say I HAVE done _____.” Here are the texts we got:
Because I have long hair and I play guitar, everyone thinks I'm a stoner!
No body believes me when I say the first set of boobies I ever touched and saw are now in playboy, Vanessa Robbins, look her up
No one believed me that my wife and were each others first and only sex partners. And we waited until we were married at 22
BJ! Nobody believes me that I almost got eattin by a bear this time last year. Me and a friend were on some drugs wondering around the woods w/o a flashlight in concrete and got chased by a bear. Scariest thing of my life and no one believes the story.
It’s been a while since we had comedian Greg Wilson in studio…I like to call him Hurricane Wilson as he is a true Ess-Storm on two feet! I lopve this guy. He’s been banned by some comedy clubs in Seattle…and then I get this email, “It’s been a while…Can't wait to see you Shea-holes again.This time, I'm gonna find that coke!” Greg is at the Tacoma Comedy Club all weekend, get info at www.tacomacomedyclub.com
Way back in the day, Greg performed at the Rock Girl Gala…if you don’t remember what happened there…here is the video blog from that special day!
This morning we were were talking about Mike Baumgartner, hes a local a U.S. Senate candidate hoping to beat Democratic Sen. Maria Cantwell this fall,this guy cracks me up! He was interviewed by a local blogger, Josh Feit (the blog is called Publicola), and Josh brought us a big story these days… Todd Akin and ridiculous comments that Akin made about rape and abortion. Well, Baumgartner apparently didn’t want to talk about that (he did say that Akin’s views are "ignorant" and "offensive"), but he would rather talk about how he wished the media would focus on the war in Afghanistan . later that night after the interview…Feit got an email from Baumgartner that included a picture…the email stated: "Josh, this is Pat Feeks, a Navy SEAL killed last week in Afghanistan. Take a good look and then go F*** yourself." Go “EFF Yourself” – wow…this guy is great! What makes it even better is that when he was intervied about what he wrote to Feit…Baumgartner said that his only regret about all of this was that he failed to stop his staff from later issuing an apology on his behalf. This guy seriously needs to embrace this attitude. I say screw it…his campaign should be this:
VOTE FOR BAUMGARTNER…OR…GO EFF YOURSELF.
He could get all WWE Attitude Era on Cantwell…post flyers around town that say “Hey maria…Mike Baumgartner has 2 words for you…SUCK IT!” OK, maybe I’m going a little too far….we got a text about all of this after I shared my campaign ideas…
Thanks guys! My 3 yr old daughter is now in the backseat yelling "suck it!!"
I texted back to tell the texter I was sorry about that, but the resonse I got was awesome:
No biggie she also yells " wack it!" On wednesdays ;)
Back in 1993, Erica Arsenault of Massachusetts got married to a man named Scott Wolferseder. They got divorced eight years ago after 11 years of marriage, and have two sons together. They didn't publicize why they divorced, they would only say that Erica left Scott. Well . . . last summer, Scott's mother, 73-year-old Dorothy, had kidney failure. Scott's sister posted on Facebook that she was taking Dorothy for dialysis. And Erica saw the post. That's when she decided to apologize for divorcing Scott in a big way . . . by DONATING A KIDNEY to Dorothy. Scott says Erica told him she wanted to give a kidney to his mother, "Because of the hurt she caused not only myself and our boys but the hurt she caused my mom. And this was her way to make it right." The surgery took place July 10th. The transplant took, and Dorothy is doing great.
Based on this, what elaborate thing have you or someone you know done as a way to apologize to someone? Here are some of the texts we received:
Old lady and i got in a fight so i bought her a brand new iPad. Got laid that night! #BLD
I restored my dads car after I stole it and sunk it in a pond 10 years ago
An ex cheated on me after 3 years... She then tattooed my nickname on the back of her neck #bld
I apologize by bringing back the woman I cheated on my wife with so my wife could have sex with her.
I had a friend write an apology to my girlfriend on my back in sunscreen, and then i went out and laid in the sun for 3 hours. Apology accepted.
I apologized to my then ex girlfriend for cheating on her while I was in training in Virginia by asking to marry me. We have been married for a couple years now and we are completely happy
I apologized to my gf of 3 years for getting her pregnant.. she left for work and I put the kid up for adoption...... apology not accepted
An appliance company in the UK recently asked people to pick the top ten status symbols they want in their home, and according to the survey, the ultimate status symbol for your home is . . . a hot tub.
1. Hot tub.
2. Walk-in closet: This was the top choice for WOMEN.
3. Side-by-side refrigerator-freezer. (--They're not common in the U.K., where the study was done. And they call them 'U.S.-style fridges’)
4. A stereo system with speakers in every room: That was top choice for MEN.
5. 3-D television.
6. Sound-activated blinds and lights.
7. Restaurant-style range stove.
8. Fancy coffee maker.
9. Temperature-controlled wine cellar.
10. Gas grill.
A new study says that the ultimate status symbol for your home is . . . a hot tub…what is something you own that you consider YOUR ultimate status symbol? Or what is something that you wished you owned for your home? Here are the texts we got:
I have a theater I built. This is the real deal. 12 foot hd screen with Bose 5.1 surround. The room is 25 x 20 with 17 ft ceilings. Great fun and my kids have movie parties.
Stephen, Sammamish: wish more than anything, I had a tennis court in my back yard.

Nike just announced that they will be selling its new LEBRON JAMES sneaker, the LeBron X, for $315! 315 dollars…those shoes better lift me off the ground and help me fly…or at least slam dunk! Who the hell would spend 300 clams on these:
They should call them the “Lebron Moron”, you have to be a real dult’ to buy them. But that’s just me…I’d rather support Nike by dropping 40 dollars on some Chuck Taylors. Why do they cost that much? Nike blamed the price on the increased cost of materials like cotton. Is this cotton laced with diamonds? Based on this, we asked the Rock-A-Holics to finish this sentence… “People think I’m nuts when they find out I spent a lot of money on _____.” Here are the texts we received:
People think im nuts when 200 on My okley sunglasses. Your friendly taco time maintenance guy nick
I spent $ 300 bucks on a Battlstar Galactica warriors jacket
vis from Lacey, WA My wife thinks I'm crazy for spending so much money on my guns. I just recently spent over $1100 on a Colt 1911 handgun

Back on August 3rd, 43-year-old Navy Commander Michael P. Ward of Connecticut was put in charge of a submarine called the U.S.S. Pittsburgh. Less than two weeks later, he was removed from his post. The reason? His superior officers found out about a scandal that shows he CLEARLY doesn't have the levelheaded decision-making necessary to command a nuclear sub. Here's what happened . . .Ward is married and has children. But last October, he was living in Virginia and met a 23-year-old woman online. He started having an affair with her using a fake name, and pretending he worked in special ops. In July, when he was moving to Connecticut for his upcoming promotion, he decided to end things. His strategy? FAKE HIS OWN DEATH. He had a friend email her on July 6th, telling her, "He asked me to contact you if this ever happened. I'm extremely sorry to tell you that he is gone. We tried everything to save him." Three days later, she went to his house to pay her respects . . . and found he'd moved because he was going to take command of a sub. Then she started putting the pieces together . . . and ultimately contacted the Navy to give them the story. The Navy removed him from his duties on Friday, "due to lack of confidence in Ward's ability to command based upon allegations of personal misconduct."
So a Navy Sub Commander was demoted after faking his death to get out of an affair…based on this, when have you lied about something to get out of something? What was it? Here are the texts we got:
I once told a girl I was sleeping with for 6 months that she was the girl on the side cause she was too clingy....... Great sex though
I told my government teacher in high school that i was with my girlfriend getting an abortion when he threatened to tell the football coach i was skipping – dave

All of us are recovering today after a great wedding on Saturday…when everyone’s favorite drunk, Topshelf, throws a party…a wedding…his wedding…you know it’s going to be a bash! All of us went to the Liberty Theater and had a great time…hell, BJ was dancing with Ted on the dance floor at one point…
Later in the evening Ben from The Mens Room and I went a block down to Bumpy’s for a drink, and dang…Bumpy’s is an awesome place to hang out. Great drinks, and everyone in there was beyond cool. We met a ton of Rock-A-Holics, and paid dearly from it thanks to all the shots that we had (thanks Cody, and Marc). We posted a pic of of Ben & I on the KISW Facebook, and people that were at the bar saw it in their news feed and tracked us down…it was too funny!
Toppy’s wedding was different than any other wedding that we have been to…it was a musical…it was filled with songs and dance routines…hell, his wife came down the aisle singing! Big thanks to Patt for emailing us this cool picture he photoshopped:
Today's video blog features a surprise at Topshelf's wedding on Saturday night...he and his bride sang a duet soon after saying "I Do"!

In a new survey by Target, almost ONE QUARTER of Americans say they skip getting flu shots because they don't like needles. Overall, only about 40% of American adults get the flu vaccine.
One quarter of Americans avoid Flu shots because they don’t like needles…based on this finish this sentence: “Even though I should do it…I’m afraid to do _____”. Here are some of the texts we got:
Even though I should get married to my girlfriend of 3 yrs an mother of my 2 daughters. Im scared s***less of the idea. –nick

Of that group, three out of five need at least two cups. Scientists and lab technicians are the professions that drink the most coffee. They're followed by marketing and PR professionals . . . education administrators . . . editors and writers . . . and healthcare administrators.

Today's Video Blog features a video of Vicky doing something interesting to get soap out of a soap dispenser!
Yesterday in front of nearly 22,000 fans at Safeco Field…Felix did something yesterday that no Seattle Mariners pitcher has done before…27 nup, and 27 down…King Felix pitched a perfect game!
This is surely a great moment in Seattle sports history, as it was the first perfect game ever by a Seattle Mariner…based on this…whether it be a sports moment or anything else…what is THE greatest moment in Seattle history? Here are the texts we got:
The greatest moment in seattle history was when courtney love moved away to los angelas.
1979 Seattle Supersonics win the nba championship
Best day in Seattle history? Not quite. Both Edgar's double and the Seahawks in the Supwrbowl are bigger, but this could be the start of something big. –Bjorn
Greatest moment "The Double" by Edgar in '95 to beat the Yankees where Griffey got piled on at home.
The grand reopening of Dreamgirls of course. -the DV
I'm only 17. But i always thought bill nye the science guy was that much cooler for doing his show in seattle.
1991 husky national champs
Come on BJ what about the storms 2 championships
The early nineties is our greatest moment. The rise and fall of the grunge era put us on the map and was one of the most important moments for the entire music industry as well. Just ask the silver sun pickups. We wouldn't have them without the grunge era.
I was watching Sportscenter yesterday, and they interviewed Felix…this interview was AWKWARD! It seems mainly because of the phone issues, but towards the end…you can tell that anchorJohn Anderson wanted to get off the phone ASAP!
Today during our game “Whose iPOD Is It Anyway”, we played songs from Toppy’s iPOD, and one of the songs was completely hilarious! It is a childrens song from Cheech…yes Cheech from Cheech and Chong!
OK…there were 2 strange songs….this one wasn’t funny, more odd and trippy…I’m guessing this was during Toppy’s teen years and acid was involved, it’s by Kraftwerk:
We found out that this song was released on an album put out in 1986, but they recorded the album from 1982-1986…so it took 4 years to come up with “Boing…Boom, Tchuck…Boing…Boom, Tchuck”?
Speaking of music…According to researchers, there are health benefits to listening to your favorite song. One reason is, music reduces activity in a part of your brain called the amygdala…it's the area that regulates negative emotions.
Here are three ways listening to your favorite song is good for your health.
1. It Lowers Your Blood Pressure. Researchers in Italy found that listening to music and breathing slowly for 30 minutes a day lowered people's systolic blood pressure (--the top number) by an average of four points.
2. It Makes You Less Tense. In a separate study, researchers in Seattle found that 30 minutes of music a day lowers your level of the stress hormone cortisol better than just sitting in total silence. Deep breathing while listening to your favorite music reduces anxiety just as much as a massage.
3. It Helps You Deal with Pain. Researchers at the University of Utah gave 143 volunteers ELECTRIC SHOCKS while they listened to music. They found that tuning into a melody made sharp pain easier to take. I can see what they mean with this…anyone who has had a tattoo knows that music helps deal with the pain while being tatted.
So researchers say that listening to your favorite song is good for your health…based on that…what is that ONE song that puts you in a good mood? Here are some of the texts we got…

For me it boils down to one song…if I am ever in a need of a pick me up, Pearl Jam’s "Present Tense" is the song of choice…the lyrics, Eddie’s voice, and when the drums kick in…everything about it. It’s all about not dwelling on your past mistakes and moving forward:
There's talk on the Web that Kristen Stewart has been dropped from the "Snow White and the Huntsman" sequel. Supposedly, Universal Studios is re-tooling the concept so that instead of a proper follow-up, they're going to do a spin-off focusing on The Huntsman . . . who was played by Chris Hemsworth in the original. That way they can get rid of Kristen, who messed a lot of things up when she had an affair with the original movie's director, Rupert Sanders. However . . . Universal says they're NOT doing this to get rid of Kristen. Her Snow White character could still appear in the Huntsman movie. Also, Sanders hasn't been ruled out as director.
Based on the rumors that Kristen Stewart might be dropped from the Snow White sequel…finish this sentence… “I can’t believe I lost my job for doing ______”. How have you or someone you know screwed up and lost a job? Here are the texts we received:

A listener of the show, Richard, emailed us about a show happening tonight that if you are able to attend…you should! Here is what he wrote us:
I'm not sure if you all are aware, or might have heard, but the Backstage Bar and Grill in Tacoma is in jeopardy of closing down. I'm not 100% exactly sure of why, what I do know though , is that this will be a MAJOR blow to the Tacoma music scene, as there are not many venues left at all for the Tacoma scene. Hells Kitchen most recently shut down, a lot of people love the BSBG, I'm not involved in promoting the show, booking it or anything else. I'm just obviously a concerned music fan and supporter of the scene
There is a Benefit show being put together TONIGHT at The Backstage Bar & Grill. There is no cover and donations are accepted which will be going directly to the venue to aid in trying to keep it open. Bands on the bill include : Mechanism, Degree of Disorder, Big Fish, SinCircus, Hookerfist (tool tribute) and Magic Carpet Ride (former members of Steppenwolf.) The show begins at 6:00pm
Here is the flyer:
Today's Video Blog is an intern Challenge! Our intern Daron has 60 seconds to find 2 people to give him their autograph...will he do it?
Yesterday was a touch day…a true icon from this area, the well loved Kathi Goertzen passed away at the age of 54. Too young. For the last 14 years she has been struggling with brain tumors…over the last few years they have taken their toll on her, to the point where she couldn’t be on TV alongside her KOMO 4 family.
I only had one opportunity to meet Kathi, it was quick, but memorable. My buddy Steve Wilson, who at the time was working at KOMO 4 as a director (you probably remember him from Almost Live!), was giving me a tour of the station after we had coffee together…as we passed the newsroom cubicles, Kathi walking by. Now I have had the privilege of meeting very cool celebrities though my job, but when she passed me it did stop me in my tracks and I looked at Steve and whispered “That’s Kathi Goertzen”, like as if he didn’t know and I was letting him in on some crazy secret. He wound up introducing me to her, and I always thought she was beautiful on TV, but in person…she was even more beautiful, and there was this aura around her. She seemed real. Very real.
After watching the tribute specials that KOMO 4 did for her, my quick opinion of her being real seemed to be very accurate. What an amazing person…the stories I heard from Steve Pool, Dan Lewis, Eric Johnson, and Mary Nam brought me to tears. She wasn’t just their co-worker…she was a part of their family. And for many viewers in western Washington, she was a part of our family.
In a recent interview Kathi did, she spoke of her mortality…she spoke of her faith and how she knew that there was more to life after this. That this is just a shell. She summed up faith in a way many of us feel, but could never articulate:
“I have a great faith that there is something much larger than me that is pulling the strings and is in charge and I just have to listen and open myself up for what I am supposed to do and it's great comfort knowing that there is more than this, and this is just a shell, really.”
I think a lot of us can learn how to be a better worker, friend, family member, and human being from Kathi Goertzen.
I wanted to share what Steve Poole said last night, as I think what he said was very touching and moving, and a testament to who Kathi was to him and many others that were lucky to have known her:
So on Thursday and Friday of last week we were off, and what did I do with my time? I spent it at the happiest place on earth if you ask me…DISNEYLAND!
What an awesome time…we wound up spending 2 days there and did the park hopper so that we could also go to California Adventure next door.
Let’s start off with Disneyland. The second we walked in I was beyond excited and ready to enjoy the park…so much to do…but before we got started, I needed to fuel up. What better way than to eat a pretzel…shaped like MICKEY!
We kicked things off in New Orleans Square and jumped in line for Pirates of the Caribbean …this ride never disappoints…we wound up going on it a couple times. It’s really an amazing experience; the detail that is put into this ride is second to none. We then quickly swung by Splash Mountain to get a Fast Pass ticket – I have to say, I love that Disney doesn’t charge extra for a Fast Pass…what you do is go to a distribution stand for the ride you want to go on, it will give you a window of time to come back to use your Fast Pass. It’s genius. Since we had about an hour until our Fast Pass could be used…we did the Haunted Mansion Ride, Jungle Cruise, grabbed lunch, grabbed a fast pass for Indiana Jones ride, and then it was time…Splash Mountain! I love this ride, and I think it shows in this picture…
I mentioned we grabbed a Fast Pass for Indiana Jones…we wound up doing that ride a few times, easily one of my favorites. By my absolute favorite ride didn’t happen until later on at night. I’ll tell you about that one later.
The entire day was great…just walking around the park puts you in great spirits…plus we met a couple of celebrities…
Yup…we ran into Tigger, and Pooh!
I even got to pump some iron…
I finally got to ride the Matterhorn…and shockingly (OK, not so shockingly), we rode that one a few times too!
This pic sums up the greatness that is the Buzz Lightyear ride:
I’m about to screw your day up if you have ever gone to Disneyland…we also rode the It’s A Small World ride:
If that song is not stuck in your head now, you possess stronger will power than me or anyone I know – ha!
I could go on and on about how awesome Disneyland is…but I still want to write about California Adventure…however, there was one ride that I not only loved, but I am obsessed about: Space Mountain! We rode this one both days…it was the highlight of both days for me. This is the greatest ride ever. This picture proves it!
Now you might see that pic, and think my wife wasn’t having fun…not the case, she was startled by the flashing lights haha! I was so obsessed with Space Mountain that I even bought a Space Mountain T-Shirt. I can’t wait to make another trip to Disney so I can go on it again!
We also checked out California Adventure. What better way to start off day two than by riding the Hollywood Tower Of terror:
Again, I have photographic proof of how awesome that ride was…
We didn’t just ride it one…we got back on it again because of how cool that ride it.
I loved the Roller Coaster, California Screemin’, the giant swinging gondolas on the Mickey Ferris Wheel, but one of the true highlights was the Toy Story Midway Mania…it was in 3-D and well worth the 30 minute wait in line!
I probably missed some of the other great moments, as there was plenty…get info on all the great fun at Disneyland at www.Disneyland.com
Our final day in Cali was spent checking out the beaches…Laguna and Newport. Laguna was cool, but I fell in love with Newport…how can you not with a view like this?
Although, Laguna did have an advantage over Newport…it featured this guy…a true Frisbee Legend…in his own mind!
While we were off, our very own Jeetz was able to swing by Seahawks training camp, and got to chat with a few Hawks: Richard Sherman, Ray Lewis, and John Moffitt! Check it out in today’s Video Blog! Huge thanks to Sallye from The Landing for helping set this up!
On Wednesday we made the trek to Knott's Berry Farm. After a rather interesting cab ride where our cabby couldn't wait for the "big" earthquake so that he could engage in a zombie apocalypse (not kidding, needless to say I tipped him well), we made it to what I learned is the oldest theme park in the U.S.
Knott's has 2 themes...Peanuts (Snoopy & gang), and a ghost town/wild west theme. Both sides were awesome. Anytime you walk into a park and can catch a photo with Lucy and Franklin, is awesome if you ask me!
We immediately hit the rides...the first ride was the Sierra Sidewinder! This ride was a blast...it's a roller coaster with a twist...literally!!! As you are on the track, your cart is spinning on its axis!
Next up was a ride I loved so much that I had to go on it multiple times...the Silver Bullet! This is one of those suspended coasters, so my feet were hanging...and this had it all: steep drops, crazy corkscrew spirals, and we went upside down 6 times!
Then we were off to the races... Enjoying all that Knott's had to offer! I never got to meet Snoopy, but this was close enough....
The Ghost Town part was amazing...the detail in the way the town looked was great, as was the main attraction there: The Ghostrider!
The Ghostrider is one of the longest and tallest wooden roller coasters in the world...to quote Road Warrior Hawk: "ooooohh What A Rush!"
Throughout the day we experienced a ton of great rides, from the ones I mentioned, to others like Montezooma's Revenge, Jaguar, Pony Express, Boomerang...but there was one that loomed in the back of my head...the one I even dedicated my blog on Tuesday to:
The XCELERATOR! A ride so crazy I typed it in all caps! This ride is CRAZY! You sit down, strap in, and then bam! You hit 82 mph in 2.3 seconds...yes, that is how the ride begins!!!!! You then fly up over 200 feet and immediately head down at a 90-degree angle! Can I just say...I was nervous anticipating this ride, but once I did it....it was AWESOME! If you missed my blog on Tuesday where I posted a video that features my hero Bert The Conquerer...here ya go:
As you can tell, Knott's Berry did not disappoint! Get more info at www.KNOTTS.com
So I am writing this from lovely Garden Grove Cali, which immediately makes me think of that Sublime song... "We took this trip to Garden Grove...". So far it's been an awesome vacation...we land a?nd get to our room Tuesday night, and not only are we located next to a Joe's Crab Shack, which freaked my wife out when she saw my jubilant reaction (hey...I've been seeing commercials for this place and now I'm crawling distance from it), but we were right by this place:
Joe's Italian Ices...home of the "Joe Latti"...this bad boy is a cup of Italian ice with soft serve ice cream on top! Are you serious? To quote the great Ralphie May... "GET IN MY BELLY!"
We get back from Joe's to settle down for a little bit & watch the Olympics from our room when all of a sudden our room starts moving & shaking...it could be one of three things...
1. Our neighbors are getting very "randy" next door.
2. A really large person fell down right outside of our room.
3. We had a freaking EARTHQUAKE!
What was it? If you guessed #3 you are correct.
You don't think a 4.4 is all that bad, but when you are in the epicenter...it does freak you out just a little.
This was a great way to get us ready for roller coasters...as the next morning we were off to Knott's Berry Farms!
We wake up yesterday...get ready for Knott's and what happens?
Yup...another stinkin' earthquake. What a start to our thrill ride vacation!
Tomorrow's blog will be all about our trip to Knott's Berry Farms!
Today is “Dude It’s The 80’s Day” On The Rock! All day long on the Rock, we are busting out the hairspray…slapping on the spandex and going back to a time when people didn’t sing about their feelings…unless those feeling were to nail groupies, and how tough life was on the road.
Yoou will hear music from Ratt, Motley Crue, Def Leppard, and so much more. Man, it brings me back to watching Headbangers Ball with Rikki Rachman on MTV…that show helped shape my musical taste back in those days…I remember this band, not a hugely popular band…but when I heard this song, I was hooked on the hair metal of that time…it’s Faster Pussycat:
These guys were so under-rated if you ask me. This song, whenever I hear Jolene play it on “Dude it’s The 80’s At 8”…I wind up texting her to thank her…yes, it’s a ballad, but in the world of ballads…it doesn’t get better than this!
We are off today, BJ is off to Hawaii, and I am off to Cali to…well…act like a kid. Tomorrow I will be at Knotts Berry Farm’s…feeding my new found addiction to Roller Coasters. This should be interesting! I will be checking this bad boy out…even though I am completely terrified by the drop! Ladies & Gent’s…it’s the Xcelerator!
The "Wall Street Journal" analyzed different sports to figure out just how much time different Olympic athletes actually spend competing on their way to a gold medal. The quickest Olympics go to the shot putters. All told, a shot putter spends just THIRTEEN SECONDS competing to win the gold. The javelin throwers come in second, with about 32 seconds of total competition on the way to gold.
That’s just crazy…under a minute of competing, and then you get the gold. Hell if lovemaking was an olympoic sport…and all you need is 13 seconds…I’d be a gold medalist…Waka Waka.
Last week I posted a list of Olympians that have interesting names…this Volleyball player from Japan made the list….my only question is…why isn’t she #2??
Our Olympics correspondent, and BBC presenter, Graham Mack had a great topic idea based on a tweet he made:
Fill in the blank - "I'd be a gold medalist if ______ was an Olympic sport". What is something that you are great at? Here are some of the texts we got:
Beer chugging, have won many beers and money beating on my beer drinking ability. Jason puayllup
I would be a gold medalist, if spraying cars with fire extinguisers while drunk, was a sport.
I would be a gold metalist at diagnosing and fixing automobiles mike
I would be a gold medal of it eating competition

The "Total Recall" remake made $26 million this weekend . . . but that was only good enough for 2nd place. "The Dark Knight Rises" tacked on another $36.4 million this weekend to easily take the #1 spot for a third week in a row. BJ saw the new Total Recall…he liked the movie a lot and thought it was well done, but did say that this version was missing the “fun” of the original. Which made BJ miss Arnold, and the “action stars” of yester-year…we came across a list that X-FINITY put together, they compiled the 20 greatest Action Movie Stars…here is the list:
1. Sylvester Stallone
2. Arnold Schwarzenegger
3. Charles Bronson
4. Bruce Willis
5. Harrison Ford
6. Bruce Lee
7. Clint Eastwood
8. Linda Hamilton
9. Will Smith
10. Steve McQueen
11. Tom Cruise
12. Nicolas Cage
13. Jackie Chan
14. Mel Gibson
15. Denzel Washington
16. Jason Statham
17. Milla Jovovich
18. John Wayne
19. Chuck Norris
20. Angelina Jolie
Who do you think is this generations Action Movie Star? Or…Who is the greatest action movie star of all time? Here are the texts we got:
The cast of the Avengers are the best of today. It had action, sex appeal, and humor. All time goes to Arnold, hands down. –Bjorn
Arnold is the greatest action star of all time. I own every arnold movie except junior. And thats cause it sucks.
For a new action star, I like Jason Statham. Crank reminds me a lot of the fun movies from the eighties.
Greatest action star(s)......it's a tie between Wesley Snipes and Sylvester Stallone (spelling?) Demolition man was AMAZING....so was Judge Dredd and the Blade Trilogy
In his prime tom cruise used to be bad ass but i really like will smith and shia lebuff for the newer generation of action. :-)
Today's video blog features a package we got in the mail that is a complete blast from the past!
Before I get to anything else…today started off great when I saw what our intern Daron was wearing!
Great news for metal fans! Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe was finally released from behind bars after spending more than a month at a Prague, Czech Republic prison on manslaughter charges. Blythe was arrested because he shoved a fan off the stage during a concert in 2010. The man suffered a brain hemorrhage and died a month later. It’s a sad story, but the fact that Randy was arrested for a freak accident amazes me…especially when you read more into, and this guy stormed the stage three times during the show according to reports.
What better way to celebrate the release of Randy than by playing my favorite Lamb Of God song:
Two men were arrested early yesterday morning in South Lake Union when they climbed a crane at a construction site. Hmmmm….alcohol, maybe? They were taken into custody around 3:00 a.m., 3:30? Alcohol, definitely! They were arrested for trespassing.

Today's video blog features the return of a man many of you listened to on The Roc....RICKER! Ricker swung by to say hi to all of us, and you as well!
Badminton has a preliminary round to decide which teams go to the medal round. It also determines the seedings for the medal round. On Tuesday, four women's doubles teams had already clinched a spot in the medal round: Two from South Korea, one from Indonesia, and the defending world champions from China. And they all figured that they'd face an easier opponent to open the medal round if they LOST their last preliminary match. So, all four teams went out and tried to LOSE on purpose. They hit serves into the net, and generally made no effort to win. Even worse, two of the teams were playing EACH OTHER . . . which resulted in an incredibly lame match. And the fans in the arena figured it out. They started booing and demanded a refund. Yesterday, Olympic officials sent all four teams HOME. The Chinese Olympic delegation said it "fully respects" the decision to punish its two players and said it would carry out its own investigation. The South Koreans and Indonesians are appealing the decision.
Four Badminton teams were disqualified for trying to lose on purpose…based on this, when have you purposely done bad at something, and why? Here are the texts we received:
Playing games with my 4 year old daughter. Wife says I'm not suppose to win.....Chris in the Claw
I sucked in bed so my ex husband would stop asking for sex. Laid there like a dead fish

"GQ" magazine just published the results of a survey asking women which qualities make up the "IDEAL MAN." They found nine characteristics that are NECESSARY, and four that are pretty important but not crucial. The Nine Necessary Qualities: Honesty . . . kindness . . . intelligence . . . a good sense of humor . . . blue eyes . . . the ability to speak two languages . . . being a romantic, as opposed to being good in bed . . . NOT being a vegetarian . . . and being a good listener. The Four Pretty Important, But Not as Important, Qualities: A European car . . . a job that requires you to wear a suit to work . . . a degree . . . and being clean shaven.
I think this list of what makes an “ideal” mate to be ridiculous…so we had to ask, what about you? What qualities make for an ideal woman or man? Here are the texts we got:
My ideal guy is someone who challenges me. Someone who doesn't just take my shit! Some one who is fun and likes to hike and be out doors! Someone who loves their family, and loves mine just as much... But in a different way of course.
My ideal man has one quality...he cares and respects his mother..we arent momma's boy but one who shows her the respect that a mother should be shown...that man will be that way to his wife/girlfriend.
She has to be able to make a killer sandwich. Ideal woman, right there.
I want a man who is smart enough to teach me new things, but not so smart as to make me feel stupid. :-â)
ine would be a lady that doesn't take for ever to get ready and realize that she has or is being crazy or overdramatic.
A woman that can sit next to u at a football game and yell, or that can look hot and sexy in a dress when u go out to dinner
Today's Video Blog features The Rev attempting to do the Blazin' Wings Challenge at Buffalo Wild Wings in Lynnwood!
So this morning the book 50 Shades Of Grey came up. No, none of us are reading it, but a story said that there might be a baby boom because of this book because woman are reading it, getting worked up, and slamming their man because of it! Hell…I have a few buddy’s that have said that they are getting more action with their wife since she started reading this book. I know nothing about this book, so I went to Wikipedia to learn about it…how about this raunch-fest is based in Seattle! Here is the plot according to Wiki:
Fifty Shades of Grey is a 2011 erotic novel by British author E. L. James. Set largely in Seattle, it is the first installment in a trilogy that traces the deepening relationship between a college graduate, Anastasia Steele, and a young business magnate, Christian Grey. It is notable for its explicitly erotic scenes featuring elements of sexual practices involving bondage/discipline, dominance/submission, sadism/masochism
The texts starting flying in regarding this book:
Chick at work just read it and keeps trying to jump my bones and...... She's married
It's just got a ton of graphic sex...very arousing :)
My wife read the book and it definitely sparked allot of sex when the book was finished so was the sex
My gf is is on the 3rd one and its all about bondage n ****plugs. She cant put it down
The book is poorly written but the sex scenes are very detailed
Its not at all bout thinkin of christian grey its hot f--,ing n it makes u horny so u do ur man
If there is a baby boom because of this book…will we see the same dumb trend that we saw with Twilight, where idiot parents were naming their kids Jacob, Edward, or Bella. I swear, hospitals should have the right to take your child and give it to a loving family if you name your kid Christian, or Anastasia.
We received this email from Brittani…if you could help out a fellow Rock-A-Holic, that would be awesome!
A very good friend of mine named Heather is very happily married to her husband Josh and they have two beautiful young children named Corbin and Keira. During Heather's pregnancy with Keira she was having a lot of trouble breathing. She went to the ER and they put her on bed rest for the remainder of her pregnancy because it was too risky to run any tests. After she gave birth they finally started running tests and found out that she was suffering for an extremely rare lung disease. Heather is now on a waiting list to have a double lung transplant. The family feels odd asking for money from others but unfortunately that is the position they are in. One of the saddest parts of this story is that her brother died a few years ago from a very similar issue. We are selling bracelets staying "Breathe Together" for $5.00 each.

Seventy years ago, Lena Henderson and Roland Davis were both 15 years old and living in Tennessee. They met, dated for a few years, got married, and had four kids together . . . but got divorced in 1964. Now, almost FIFTY YEARS after their divorce, they're both 85 . . . and they've decided to get REMARRIED. After the divorce, Lena moved to Buffalo, New York. Roland ended up moving to Colorado and getting remarried. Earlier this year, his wife died . . . and one of his and Lena's adult daughters convinced him to move to New York to be with the family. Once he got back around Lena, they had the same spark they did back when they were teenagers . . . and decided to get married all over again. Their wedding is this weekend in Buffalo.
Based on this story about a couple getting back together after getting Divorced 48 years ago…Have you ever gotten back with someone you divorced? Did it work out? Or…Would you ever get back with you ex? What would it take to get back with them? Here are some of the texts we received:
After separating 3 times before divorcing... And after I dating me for over 3 years, at Christmas of last year my ex and her husband had a conversation over dinner. 3 weeks later we broke up. 2 months after that they were officially an item.
I got divorced 3months ago from my wife of 10 years. We are back together planning to get remarried and happier than ever!
My parents have been divorced for 6 yrs, never moved outta the same house. They have tried it once since then but obviously it failed. Now they are trying again but this last wkend my mom heard rumors my dad was cheating again. Did I mention when they were married my dad got some chick pregnant and I have a 12 yr old sister.
Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo way in hell I'd ever go back to my ex wife. Been 12 years since our divorce and its been the happiest 12 years of my life vs the 7 years of hell with her
I def wont get back with my x becuz she is a cheating whore!
I am currently "dating" my ex-husband
Not only no but F no . HE WAS A DAMN PSYCO . Probably the only person in the world I hope bad shit happens to ! This bitch dont love drama
He's probably only marrying her so he can watch her die. Hahaha
After 12 years of battling over kids, which I have, she came to c the kids a couple of months ago and we hooked up.
My husband and I were divorcing but before we followed through with the papers we were back together and better than ever now after
I would only get back together to do her. That was the only good part.
My grandmother was married 7 times to 4 men. She married the last one 4 times crazy bitch
On Saturday night, a 23-year-old man outside of Darwin, Australia decided to shove a few firecrackers into his butt crack, then lit them. And as you'd expect, things went wrong and he was severely burned all over his buttocks AND genitalia. The local hospital is planning to fly him to a bigger hospital to handle his burns. And it gets worse for him . . . he lives in a part of Australia where it's illegal to set off fireworks, so he could get hit with a fine.
Based on this story of a guy that severely burned his buttocks AND genitalia when trying to light fireworks from there…finish this sentence: “I’ll admit that I contributed to the dumbing down of society when I tried to do ______.”
Roger from tacoma.. 3 friends and I jumped off a 60 foot cliff into water while our t shirts were on fire. Why..cause there were people who wanted to se e it. 2 guys got 3rd degree burns on the back of their bicepts. Then they got in trouble with the army for damaging government property namely their own bodies.
My brother was layn his junk on the end of a conveyr belt while evrybody was on lunch. The staples that hold it conveyr snagd his sack!
Jumped over bond fire naked. Burned all hair off my ass and junk! Thank God that was it.
I'll admit that I contributed to the 'Dumming Down' Of our city by attempting to jump from one part of the stage to another. I was doing a show in a bar and I thought it would be a good idea to jump from the stage to the bar. I could preform there so I wanted to. It was further than I thought and I fell and broke 4 of my ribs. Couldn't sing for 3 months... Also wasn't allowed to smoke or drink.... I was pissed and stuck in a bed... I WONT try to jump distances again with out thinking twice. -With stupidity, Faro Lavinichiono
I tried to launch a bottle rockets with my teeth.. Forgot they spray very hot sparks and burnt my Lips! Thank you Bacardi for numbing the pain
When i tried to do a runing backflip off a cliff then ended up hitting my head on the cliff and fell into the river knocked out cold lol
The big argument today is “To Stand Or Not To Stand” – BJ was shocked by my bathroom habits. How do I describe this in a “classy” way. OK, I can’t…I stand when I wipe. That simple. Oh when I’m in the bathroom taking care of business…I fully take my pants and my underwear off. They thought this was crazy. The texts flew in (of course) with people having my back…sort to speak:
Stand up for the win
