Huh?

Dumbest remarks made by local media types about college football on Saturday:

Radio Blabberer Matt Davison: "The unknowns are always a question mark."

WOWT's Merlin Klaus: "Northern (Iowa) is getting hard today."

I think Matt Davison knows he can pretty much say whatever he wants and people will be okay with it, since he's pretty much been doing it for both football AND basketball games since he graduated. If you catch that ball he did, in Nebraska, you can do whatever you want, including saying dumb thing after dumb thing.

Proof that athletes are not always good at other jobs. I am sick of athletes getting paid for other jigs when their only "credibility" is being an ex "husker". What does Johnny Rodgers do for a living? Nobody can tell me. He is a professional Heisman Trophy Winner, ex gas station robber and cable TV stick-up guy (San Diego). But the guy has no job or visible means of support.

You may have missed "Rossi" in one of his early performances as the new sports director at WOWT. It should be remembered at least as well as the "corn cob" incident of Webber's, whatever that was.

Rossi was doing a live shot Friday (9/11) from Millard's stadium, and the Millard South cheerleaders were going to perform to the commercial. Ross introduced them, comments about how suitable it was for the Patriot cheerleaders to be performing on Patriot Day, then, instead of saying, "Take it away", he shouted, "Take it off, ladies!"

WOWT: Giving us the most for our entertainment dollars.

More stupidity from Miss Malorie on the WOWT news this morning. Nadia Singh was doing a live report from the scene of a stabbing...She was standing right in front of a parked police car that had its lights flashing like a Christmas tree. And Malorie Obvious asks, "We understand that police are still on the scene?"

I could read it on Nadia Singh's face that she was doing all she could to keep from saying, "Ya think??"

Another "huh?" issue...the new WOWT crawl that runs during the Today Show. I swear it is written just to see if anyone is actually reading it. This morning's entry started out "Hollywood in the Heartland...snow in Council Bluffs overnight" WTF!

Cogitor said...

Actually, they were talking about a movie shoot over there that had man-made snow as one of the elements.

How long is WOWT going to work the very pregnant Jaime McCutcheon & what is with Jim Flower's comb-over?

Joe Swank said...

I agree with Helio. Jamie McCutcheon is HUGE! Is she having a litter? Her breasts have gotten enormous hmmmm maybe not a bad thing. I think wowt is hoping she drops the baby live on the set.

Breaking news from the Web-channel. The largest city in Nebraska has changed the spelling of its name as evidenced in the following quote from a story about Christmas lights:

"The lights display draws thousands of people to the downtown Omhaa area"
