Sunday Moving the Couch!

Filed under: sports 56, Uncategorized — robfischer @ 11:31 am

Moving Sucks!  Especially during the first weekend of college football!  Not having cable sucks!  Especially during the first weekend of college football!

Random thoughts this past week:  I love them Zooperstars!  They performed on America’s Got Talent and were as comical as ever!  Well, they were comical to everyone except Piers Morgan- go figure.  Here are my top ten zooperstars:

10.   9.   8.   7.   6.  

5.   4.   3.   2.   1.

See all of the Zooperstars at-

Other news from AGT:  David Hasselhoff still amazes me.  The man is a legend somehow.  His jeans last week were classic.  On the back pockets read- Back Hoff. 

Neal Boyd should win the competition.  His voice is amazing and his passion is unmatched.  He’ll take home the cool $1 million and perform in Las Vegas.


Remember all of the idiot fans of Bucky Covington (including Peter Edmiston), who were all over me when I didn’t have anything nice to say about the American Idol reject?  Here’s his latest gig- Covington’s fan base is so big, he’s performing at the Grundy County Corn Festival. He’s the biggest artist the Corn Festival’s ever seen. Filling the rest of the bill — Slippery When Wet (Jovi cover band) and … dueling pianos. 

Now there’s a career that’s about to take off!  Or, Take Hoff.  Whatcha got for me now Bucky Nation?


The best Offensive Coordinator the University of Tennessee has had under Phil Fulmer- Peyton Manning.


I watched Smokey and the Bandit this weekend (remember- no cable).  I was shocked to hear these words come out of my mouth- “Boy, that Sally Field sure was hot.”  I don’t think you can disagree with that assessment!


Speaking of the Bandit, who would you rather have drinks with in Las Vegas- Wayne Newton or Burt Reynolds?


Don’t answer too quickly.  Burt would certainly bring in the women, although Vegas is Wayne’s town and he has a way with the ladies himself.  Burt has great stories about all of the women he’s been with, although I’m sure Wayne has some pretty good tales.  But, here’s my deciding factor- Burt would probably keep all of the women for himself, while Wayne would take who he wants and leave the rest behind.  Also, Burt might run out on the tab, while Wayne would probably pick it up for everyone at the bar.  I’m going with Wayne in a close call.


Watching the Democratic National Convention made me think of Monica Lewinsky for some reason.

What’s Monica up to these days (or down to)? After the scandal she started a business selling her own brand of handbags online, but she closed it in 2004. She was the host of the short-lived reality television dating program called Mr. Personality. In December 2006, Lewinsky graduated with a master’s degree in Social Psychology from the London School of Economics. Her thesis was titled “In Search of the Impartial Juror: An exploration of the third person effect and pre-trial publicity.”

If anyone ever comes across a Horatio Sanz Best of SNL video, please pick me up a copy.  The dude is funny, and portrayed great characters on SNL.


The Dish


Good For our Grizzlie!Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima may be off the market, thanks to her engagement to Memphis Grizzlies guard Marko Jaric, but she’s still offering tips on how a fella can land his very own angel. “Be yourself,” she said at the Supermodel Obsessions launch. “And don’t talk about yourself too much. That’s not sexy.” — NY Daily News


Campbell Soup Cans MomsCampbell Soup is canning the moms. Campbell Soup says its new research has revealed that the company’s target consumers — men in their 30s — are finally achieving soup independence.


9-year-old boy told he’s too good to pitch (Associated Press)- Nine-year-old Jericho Scott is a good baseball player — too good, it turns out. The right-hander has a fastball that tops out at about 40 mph. He throws so hard that the Youth Baseball League of New Haven told his coach that the boy could not pitch any more. When Jericho took the mound anyway last week, the opposing team forfeited the game, packed its gear and left. Officials for the three-year-old league said they will disband Jericho’s team, redistributing its players among other squads, and offered to refund $50 sign-up fees to anyone who asks for it. They say Jericho’s coach, Wilfred Vidro, has resigned. But Vidro says he didn’t quit and the team refuses to disband. Players and parents held a protest at the league’s field on Saturday urging the league to let Jericho pitch. The team was 8-0 and on its way to the playoffs when Jericho was banned from pitching. League officials suggested that Jericho play other positions, or pitch against older players or in a different league.



13-year-old makes the scene with the Senators- Ken Warren, The Ottawa Citizen- Christian Rusu will have quite the story to tell when he goes back to Broadview Public School with his 8th Grade next week. One minute he was laughing with his friends, taking off his equipment in the dressing room after a hockey camp session. The next minute, he was back on the ice, facing shots from the Ottawa Senators’ Chris Kelly, Chris Neil, Chris Phillips, Shean Donovan, Anton Volchenkov and Jason Smith and several other National Hockey League players. 13-year-old Christian Rusu with defenceman Jason Smith, got to live the dream of a life-time by playing goalie during an Senators scrimmage. Was it a step up from anything he had ever experienced before? “More like a big leap. I came out to the top of my (goal crease), and, all of a sudden, I looked one way, then the other, and the puck was behind me and I was thinking, ‘Where did that come from?'” Christian made several saves, but the highlight had to be a stop against Donovan, a 14-year NHL veteran, on a breakaway.



Michael Phelps to host ‘Saturday Night Live’- NBC Sports- Michael Phelps and hip-hop superstar Lil’ Wayne are set to appear on the season premiere of “Saturday Night Live” on Sept. 13. Access Hollywood also reports that the swimmer will make an appearance on MTV’s “Video Music Awards” on Sept. 7.


McConaughey’s Mom: His Dad Died During Sex! Posted by ExtraTV- Mama McConaughey is dishing some serious dirt in her new book, “I Amaze Myself!” — including how her hubby died during a romp in the sack! “On Monday mornings, he and I often said goodbye by making love,” Kay McConaughey tells Us Weekly. “One day, all of a sudden, it just happened… but it was just the best way to go!”


Get Kenny Rogers’ New Tunes at Cracker Barrel! Posted by ExtraTV- The three-time Grammy winner is launching his new album, “Kenny Rogers: 50 Years” — and it’s being sold exclusively at Cracker Barrel restaurants. “For me, the whole goal is to stay relevant as long as I can,” Rogers tells AP. And nothing says relevance like being served up next to some hand-battered Fried Pork Chops and the peg game!


Gas prices force Diddy to fly (gasp!) commercial- Access Hollywood- Even Diddy’s complaining about high prices at the pump. “As you know, I do own my own jet and I have been having flying back and forth to L.A. pursuing my acting career. Now, if I’m flying back and forth like twice in a month, that’s like $200,000 or $250,000 round trip. I’m back on American Airlines right now. We need to do something about, so tell whoever the next president is that we need to bring gas back down.”



New judge will instantly improve ‘Idol’ By Andy Dehnart (MSNBC) “American Idol” now has a permanent fourth judge, as songwriter Kara DioGuardi will join Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson, for the show’s eighth season, starting Tuesday with the New York auditions. DioGuardi is a songwriter and producer who’s worked with current pop stars including Christina Aguilera, the Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Faith Hill and Gwen Stefani, never mind “American Idol” alumni such as Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Bo Bice and Clay Aiken.  Paula Abdul said, “I am concerned about the audience and acceptance. Time will tell.”
