Kurt’s Blog: Skipping Work For Soccer?
Kurt’s Blog: Skipping Work For Soccer?

USA v. Germany…my prediction…a 2-2 draw…which is fine, we’d still advance on, and that’s all that matters.

85% of my friends who don’t like soccer…are skipping work today.

Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith have split up….and apparently, he’s moving on to Sharon Stone. This would be such huge news…if it was 1995.

RIP Actor Terry Richards...you might recognize him from this…

Ed Sheeran‘s “X” album is fantastic…absolutely fantastic. Win it this weekend on Star 102.5.

Apparently, 1987….Bon Jovi and Michael Jackson were staying at the same hotel. Bon Jovi invited MJ to party with them…but instead, MJ sent Bubbles the Chimp in his place….and apparently Bubbles knew how to dance. Why aren’t there photos of this?

It’s been a week full of poop…and now apparently, the world’s oldest poop has been found. Details here.

Fun (no pun intended) alert: The Bleachers…it features Jack Antonoff of Fun.

In Europe, Cool Ranch Doritos are called Cool American Doritos.

How big must a housecat be to be mistaken for a cougar? That’s a big cat.

The new trailer for “Mockingjay” is out…and yes, if you haven’t read the books, it does have a spoiler in it

Finished Orange is the New Black┬áSeason 2…completely satisfied with how everything wrapped up. There might not be two better characters right now than Poussey and Crazy Eyes.

Next Wednedsay…TRL returns for one day only…and it will be all Ariana Grande. Somehow, *Nsync will finish #1 in the countdown.

2014 MMVA Show

Soccer star Luis Suarez of Uruguay bit a player (for the third time) on Tuesday….so now, you ┬ácan play a Pac-Man style version featuring Suarez. Stop working…play it here.

Big Ken introduced me to the idea of grilling apples…holy cow…kids have a new favorite. Ken & I might be having a grilling war this summer…much deliciousness will be had.
