Kurt’s Blog: It’s a Secret Sound Tradition!

Secret Sounds Observations

Ahh…I was happy to hear the guess “Riding the Tornado at Adventureland” yesterday. I don’t know what Secret Sound #3 is, but every time we do Secret Sound, “Riding the Tornado at Adventureland” is always guessed. It’s like a Secret Sound tradition!

Also, the Secret Street Sound? I’m totally stumped. I thought I had an idea…but every time I hear it, I change my mind.

Guess often…and feel free to change your answer!

How Dare You

Yesterday, a photo was Tweeted that had Justin Bieber touching the Stanley Cup. How dare you tarnish the Cup! The Cup is strictly for the champions…the mighty, mighty Chicago Blackhawk champions.

Signs That You’re Almost 30!

A list had been compiled listing 30 signs that you’re almost 30 years old…and holy cow, it could not be more spot-on!

You get carded…and you’re first instinct is “AWESOME”

You’ve gone to bar and left because it was too loud

You get super excited when you go to a concert….and see that there are SEATS!

You’re experiencing the dreaded 2-day hangover!

You’ve lost the enzyme that can make you digest Taco Bell.

Instead of drunken party photos, your FB friends are all about baby pics…and marathon times.

The Closing of Hooters

A few years ago, my buddy Sully and I did a much bally-hooed (how about that for a word today) Wing Tour, where we went to 10 different locations and ranked their wings. Since then, whenever there are buffalo wing-related events (like the closing of the West Des Moines Hooters), my friends come to me.

This was a common text I got yesterday:

“Where did Hooters wings come in on the list?”

My reply:

“Last”.

I was never a fan of their wings…not enough meat, and the skin was just too gristly. However, their grilled cheese sandwich was excellent…and for reasons that I’d rather not say (okay, here’s why…I was interning for another station in our building, and was out at the Hooters every Wednesday for half a year…and tried to eat healthy for two weeks)…but their Cobb Salad was excellent.
