Tomorrow morning at 8:15, my good buddies Brian and Chuck will reach deep into the Giant FM ballot box and select a name from all the qualifiers to head to Vancouver May 13-15 to see U2 Live, at their opening night concert! It has been a wonderful pleasure for me to have a chance to speak to so many of you, as I answered the phones and 'met' the people who make it possible for all of us to interact with you and hear what's going on in your lives.

It seems whenever I come back to work from the weekend, someone always tells me about the TV show they “Binged Watched” over the last couple of days. This is usually done by downloading, youtube or maybe even the old fashioned way; watching a number of DVD discs. The other day I started pigging out on the original HAWAII FIVE-O but after a few episodes I thought, “What am I doing?” I mean I can only take so much of Steve, Dano, Chin an... Click here
Have to share a Willie Nelson story today on 4/20.
Willie is jumping into the movement to commercialize marijuana, and plans to 'roll' out his own brand of cannabis that he intends to make the best on the market. WILLIE'S RESERVE will be grown and sold in Colorado and Washington. His press release explains: "Willie's Reserve will reflect the many varieties and range of the plant's qualities."
The release also says the 81 year old Nelson wil... Click here
Well here it is another Monday and for me that means it’s time to stretch, groan and shout out a mouthful of profanity. Later this afternoon I will be dutifully heading over to the BTO Studios in Thorold to train with a guy who takes great pleasure at seeing people gassed; I’m talking my good friend Dan Giancola. Since September I have been training with Dan, I have learned a great deal about nutrition and what I should and shouldn’t be eating to atta... Click here
While I know our Giant FM morning host Brian would like to see a change in the NHL draft Lottery so that all 14 teams that miss the playoffs have an equal chance of getting the first overall pick, this is the first thing I’ve EVER disagreed with him on (O.K., second…..I forgot about soccer!) . I’d like to see the lottery scrapped completely. You finish last? You automatically get first pick. Period. Hey, it seems to work fine in the NFL, and no one ever ac... Click here
The other day an Alaskan Airways employee fell asleep inside the baggage compartment of a jet, as it turns out the sleepy suitcase tosser had been burning the candle at both ends and had just finished his shift. His co-workers called out to him, checked the aircraft and even tried to raise him on his mobile, all to no avail. The grounds crew thought that he must have checked out early. The jet was cleared for takeoff with Rip Van Winkle sawing logs as the plane hit a cruisin... Click here

It didn’t take long at all for Leafs President Brendan Shanahan to clean house following this most dismal of seasons for the Blue and White. On Sunday, Shanahan announced that General Manager Dave Nonis was being relieved of his duties, along with head coach Peter Horachek and 3 of his assistants, and 2 other front office types. Finally, a move in the right direction for the Leafs. Horachek, you could see coming. His assistants too. They inherited a terrible situation, one which... Click here
If you’re a Leaf or Sabres fan, after this season from you-know-where they’re both wrapping up this week, isn’t it great to have baseball back? No matter who your team is, watching baseball is the most definite sign that we’ve made it through another harsh winter, and that better, warmer days are ahead. Hope ‘springs” eternal if you’re a baseball fan. Heck, the Kansas City Royals almost won the World Series last year,... Click here
