I would like to congratulate all my friends in the band Modern Day Romeos on their awesome win in the 2014 WGN Radio Cubs Song contest. The obliterated the competition and won in a landslide. My deepest thanks to any of you that voted for them and my deepest condolences to any of you that voted for the other guys. Although, they were all very worthy entries. Yeah, I am biased. Again, if you would like to hear the winning song, go ahead and click below. And be sure to catch them perform it LIVE on opening day at Wrigley Field. CONGRATS AGAIN GUYS!

Modern Day Romeos – Hey Hey!

Listen to the announcement (and Jimmy) here. It is about 35 minutes in.


Hey Hey! Holy Mackerel! VOTE!

For those of you that don’t know, I live in northern Illinois. That means that I am a fan of the Chicago Cubs. I am also a fan of a local band named Modern Day Romeos. One of my best friends is the lead singer for the band. He is also my daughter’s Godfather. The last few years, the Chicago Cubs, in conjunction with WGN Radio, (they are the station that broadcasts the Cubs games) have had a contest for bands to submit entries to be the theme song for the team that year. It gets played on the radio, they get to perform it at opening day, it is a pretty big deal. MDR has submitted a song. It is a good song. Out of hundreds of songs submitted, they made the top three. Now, people need to vote for their song.


You can vote every day (voting is open until March 14th). You can vote from multiple devices the same day. Just vote! Please. It would be pretty cool to get some national and international votes as well. I know there are people reading this from exotic places … like New Jersey. Remember, they are Modern Day Romeos and their song is “Hey Hey!”

Here is the link to vote:

If you actually want to hear the song, that link is right here:

Hey Hey – Modern Day Romeos

Thank you from me, the Romeos and all of their friends that want to ride their coat tails to fame and fortune. If you vote, and they win, I will see if I can get you some sort of special thing. Maybe an autograph that you can sell on eBay one day. Leave a comment when you vote so I know who to get stuff to!

P.S. I wouldn’t be opposed to anyone re-blogging or talking about this in their own blogs. I know, cheap begging but I am not above that to help out my friends.

Celebrity Deaths … This Ain’t The Oscars

Posted in Celebrity Deaths, Nonsense with tags , , , on March 2, 2014 by Bob

I thought the Oscars would be a good time to catch up on my list for a couple of reasons. 1) I am talking about dead celebrities and there are a lot of them in the audience. 2) I don’t really get into the Oscars, at least not enough to have to pay attention. Also, I call out more dead celebs in a month than the awards shows usually do in 10 years. Regardless, I know I have neglected for a couple of months so I feel this is a good time to do it. I do need to call out that I got 1 prediction correct so far. Shirley Temple. I don’t think I have ever gotten one right this early in the year. Yeah, I’m proud of that. Don’t judge. So, here we go with dead celebs for January and February.


Bernard Glasser – 89 – Producer Day of the Triffids – Jan 2

Jay Traynor – 70 – Singer Jay and the Americans – Jan 2

Phil Everly – 74 – The Everly Brothers – Jan 3

Mae Young – 90 – Wrestler – Jan 14

Ruth Duccini – 95 – Last surviving female munchkin from Wizard of Oz – Jan 16

I know I was going to put Feb also but … I am tired and too distracted by this silly show.
