  • What is going on with American Idol

    Posted by Mike Mathers

    Well another night of Idol, and there were a lot of bad performances, a few ok performances and one incredible performance.  I can tell its all about the judges this year and Simon really let the singers have it at the end, and I agree they definately need to step it up and choose the right song.  Check out this link where it grades every american idol singer!  http://www.starpulse.com/news/Andrew_Payne/2010/03/24/american_idol_recap_an_off_night_as_th

    According to the grades looks like its a battle between:  Paige (Who I really want to go home), and Andrew. Speaking of the best performance here is Crystal Bowersox version of Me And Bobby Mcgee!

     

  • I am feeling the March Madness now!

    Posted by Mike Mathers

    Hey, hope everyone had a great weekend.  I had a lot of fun in Rhinelander, it was great seeing all the listeners up there, and the pictures are up on the WIFC facebook page, its easy to become a fan on there!  How about the college basketball games, and the UPSETS!  The biggest one was Northern Iowa beating Kansas, it was truly amazing.  My brother actually went to that school so he was going nuts, they play again this Friday to go to the elite 8.  Tough game for Wisconsin fans, but hey now you guys can root for the underdog, heres a video from that game Saturday!

    The good old 80's, they called it the party decade.  It was also a decade where a lot of actors tried to become singers, even some were even hits(See Eddie Murphy-Party All The Time). The decade also brought some really cool cars, check them out here and what they would  cost you today! http://editorial.autos.msn.com/article.aspx?cp-documentid=1134372&icid=autos_1347&GT1=22021

     

    Just a reminder to stop on out to Verizon Wireless in Rhinelander, Saturday from 1-3.  Check out all the deal they got going on, and I have your chance at some Mt Olympus Waterpark tickets, you want the good stuff then come say hi tomorrow in Rhinelander.  Heres one of new favorite songs to crank up really loud its called Shinedown from Pop Evil, have a great weekend!

  • Do you feel the madness yet?

    Posted by Mike Mathers

    Besides opening da for baseball, this is one of the other great days in sports.   day where the underdogs go up against the big name schools.  Its an american tradition of non stop college basketball, where you definately throw out the records, and the upsets are always happening.  You can probably bet what I did, and there were some good upsets.  Murray State at 12 seed should not beat the 4 seed Vanderbilt, but it happened today.  Thats why this basketball tournament is so fun to watch.  Check out this video, its the top 15 buzzer beaters of all time!

     

     

     

    One more thing since my Iowa Hawkeyes are one of the biggest jokes in college basketball, im rooting for Northern Iowa, go Panthers!!!

  • What A Week!

    Posted by Mike Mathers

    Back to reality, and im really excited to get back on the radio, but im gonna miss Florida.  It all started with going to Cocoa Beach on Sunday, it was only 65 but it was sunny and it felt great!  We were at Coconuts on the beach and the atmosphere was crazy.  The next day there was a cookout by the pool at our resort to meet some of the other people there.  Met quite a few people including some great listeners from Wisconsin Rapids( see pic below).  Tuesday we were gonna go to Universal Studios, but plans didnt work so me and my bro hung out around Florida and had a good time.  That night we went to Citi Walk in downtown Orlando just an amazing place.  We ate at Margaritaville Jimmy Buffets and they even had a great coverbad while enjoying some delicous food.  Citi Walk was a sight to see, it had Hard Rock Cafe, NBA City, Bob Marleys a couple of huge dance clubs pretty much something for everyone.  Wednesday I went to Cocoa Beach and it was the hottest day of the trip.  Got up to 81, and wow did it feel good.  Thursday went to the Bulls Magic NBA game.  Im a huge Bulls fan and they lost by 29 points and i still had a blast.  The atmosphere was incredible and they really put on one heck of a show.  Friday was the sad day where we had to leave paradise.  So back to Monday it turns out some aweseome listeners were at our resort from Wisconsin Rapids, here was the pic we took!

  • Whos the king of swagger?

    Posted by Mike Mathers

    You know its so great for the Brewers to have a TRU superstar locked up for the next 5 years, I really think when its all said and done, Ryan Braun has a chance to be the best Brewer of all time, yep he is the man!!!!  I know Prince Fielder is the man too, but I dont think the Brewers can resign him it would be so great to lock up Prince to a longterm contract.  Enjoy this video of Ryan Braun!
