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.

Too Crazy NOT To Be True

Occasionally I go to some websites and wonder if the information is real. A prime example is Texts From Last Night. While often times humorous, I look at some of the conversations and think, “there is no way someone actually said that”. There are other times and other places where I have questioned the validity of statements that are just so out there that no sane person could have possibly said them. Until the other day that is.

I was checking the status updates of my friends on Facebook and came across I think the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. I would just type what it was, but then it wouldn’t be as good. I will however paste a screen shot of it below with names and faces blurred to protect the innocent, and to protect me from them lol. Once I read this, I now will think again when I say that the things people post are made up.

Just a quick bit of humor for tonight. On our way to dinner and to see a great band, the Modern Day Romeos in Elgin tonight. If you haven’t seen them before, you should. I will write more about them lat

Until next time remember, I would have been here right after you called, but I had to shake the weasels.
