We STILL ARE Penn State!


Let me start by saying I am not a lifelong Penn State football fan.  Throughout my radio career, I’ve adopted the local college team as MY team.  I’ve followed and been a fan of West Virginia, Ohio State, The Citadel, Colorado State, Central Florida and of course Penn State.

There’s been a lot of talk of Penn State football this week in light of the sanctions dished out by the NCAA.  It’s not going to be easy for anyone associated with the team.

But this is not the time to abandon them.

I think NOW more than EVER you should be supporting the Nittany Lions.  Buy a ticket.  Wear blue & white.  Go to a game.  And CHEER FOR THE TEAM.

Wednesday more than 30 players on the team said they will stay at Penn State and not transfer to another school.

“We take this as an opportunity to create our own legacy, “ said senior Michael Mauti.  “This program was not built by one man and it’s sure as hell not going to get torn down by one man.”

Well put.

Don’t take out the horrendous acts of one man on the current team.

Get your butt in the seats.

Support the local businesses in State College.

They need you now more than ever.

We STILL ARE Penn State!!!

What do you think?

Here's Where You'll Find the Next Superstar Comedian!


Will Ferrell was on Letterman Monday night.  He told a story about his 2 year old son.  He LOVES to say to Will's friends "You have a small penis!" 

How can you not LOVE kids?  It's like radio without the FCC!  They have absolutely no content filter.

And obviously, Will is not alone.

Here's what you had to say when we asked for EMBARRASSING THINGS YOUR KIDS SAID IN FRONT OF PEOPLE.

Thanks for all the calls & texts!!!

And as always, THANKS for starting your day with KRZ.

~Rock

My son is 2. Favorite show is Thomas and friends. Favorite train is Pursey. He doesn’t pronounce the “R”.  He says “pussy.”  He goes around the house “Where is my pussy?  I can’t find my pussy!”

I have been on jury duty all week so at dinner last night my daughter told everyone how I’m always at the courthouse because that’s where all the bad people go. She is five.

My then six year old son and I were in the pet store looking at a puppy. The puppy was nibbling at him as all puppies do and went below the waist and "got" him through his shorts. He laughingly yelled at the top of his lungs, "My wiener, my wiener! The doggy's biting my wiener!"

When my son was 3 or 4 he loved to put batteries in flash lights. One day he was up stairs playing and just as my Mom walks into my house, he comes down the stairs and says “Look mommy I found it in your room and it works now but it won’t stop shaking.”  He’s holding an adult toy.

My son, who is 2 1/2, is being potty trained, grabs himself, and says  "I'm doing it with my balls".

When we took my 4 yr old son (now 18) to see Santa, when he was finished telling Santa what he wanted, he asked him for things for us as well. He wanted a new coffee cup for Mom (because he dropped and brroke my favorite) , he wanted Shania Twain in her birthday suit for his Dad, and for his 2 yr old sister - a new address!

When my son was little he would tell the Dr I didn't feed him and made him sleep on the porch and the other son would hold up a sign in the car window that would say “Help me.”

My son was at Hershey Park on the pirate ship and screamed that this ride was tickling his penis .

At the local zoo seeing the porcupines, my son says out loud:  “Don’t worry Mommy these pricks won’t hurt me!”

I picked my two yr daughter up at Daycare, and in front of the owner she pinched my boob and said “You like it?” Her sweet voice didn’t mask my red face lol.

My 2 year old son was asking the nurse at the hospital if she had a "pee-bug".

My three-year-old is obsessed with saying the word penis in front of anybody. He knows it makes me so mad and embarrassed.  He always does it when my 12-year-old daughter has her friends over and all her friends start laughing and scream and when he's running around saying it.

We were at the mall and my 6 yr old read a shirt that said “Hello titties” instead of “Hello Kitty” so he walked around all day saying it to people.

My friend’s 2 year old little girl says” Bye bitches” all the time.

I’m a single Mom and when I took my son to a ballgame i introduced him to a guy friend and my son says “Does that mean your’e not sleeping at our house tonight?’  He was 5.

Whenever we are in the minivan my son rolls down the window and says “if the van is rocking don’t come knocking.”

My daughter slaps my belly and says "Look at Mom’s bowl of jello.  It's giggley"

We were having lunch in Wendy's one day and a guy walked in that didn't have any arms and my three-year-old asked very loud where are his arms and how is he going to eat with no arms?

He would put his fist up to people at the store and say “You want five where you sneeze?” and  “What you looking at!” He's only 4.

Sitting on the couch with a guy I just started dating...my 5 yr old daughter walks up..."My Mom thinks she can dance but she can't and.....she farts". Ya that guy didn't last long.

My son is 4 and LOVES to tell everyone he has 2 testicles lol omg

My Mom was babysitting this one girl & they were eating lunch at a Chinese buffet and she looked at my Mom and said:  “Have you ever had crabs before?”

My 7 year old daughter says "Ken-*ucky" Fried Chicken, meaning, KFC.

My 3 yr old says to people nice bum where u from.

Bull in a China Shop



Last night Lissa & I hosted our monthly SPARTY at Famous Salon & Spa in Hazleton.  That's right!  I was the bull in the china shop.

Owner Marina invited me since the Spa caters to men as well as women.  They even have their own barber shop.

All I can say is WOW!  What a great staff.  They really made Lissa and I and our contest winners Ashley, Kristina, Angela & Kathy feel right at home.  And Marina put me at ease the minute I walked in by offering me an ice cold beer.

THANK YOU Famous Salon & Spa!!!

Feather Boas, Ducks & Batman.



It's true!  Feather boas, ducks, and Batman were all a part of my weekend.

I hosted another fun Happy Hour Friday afternoon at Cooper's Cabana in Pittston.  We are there EVERY Friday afternoon with great drinks specials & a chance to win a cruise to the Caribbean.

This week we had a fun group from Pride Mobility AND future bride Margo with her feather boa.  #GoodTimes.

Saturday I helped with the 24th Annual DUCK DERBY at the Coal Street Complex.  You helped to raise thousands for the American Cancer Society. 



My bud Brian Coe was there from the WB/Scranton Penguins.  Kids had a chance to win Penguins bobbleheads if they shot a puck in the inflatable net.  Brian got whacked in the head by a stray slapshot from Pen's mascot Tux.  That's gonna leave a mark.  All for a good cause, right Brian?



Saturday night Sue and I went to see THE DARK KNIGHT RISES.  I couldn't help thinking about all the victims in Colorado.  Did the tragedy keep you from going to see the movie this weekend? 

The 8pm show at Wilkes-Barre Movies 14 was packed.  I'm sure I wasn't alone in my thoughts.  My heart goes out to all the victims and their families.

So what about the movie?  Other than the director needing a pair of scissors to cut this down by at least 20 minutes it was great.  I loved the portrayal of the Bane character.  He's definately one of the best villians ever.  Anne Hathaway was pretty hot as Catwoman, but her character just added some silliness to the flick.  And Batman, how about a throat lozenge?  We had a hard time understanding your low talking.

Was Letterman right?  Does Batman die?  I won't say a thing about the ending, other than I LOVED IT.  I just wished it came a little sooner!




That's my sister Suzie and I.  She and her boyfriend were in Milford, PA Sunday for their annual cigarette run.  The price of smokes are so crazy in NYC that they rent a car and trek to PA to load up.  Makes perfect sense, right?  Love you guys!!!

And how was YOUR weekend?

Did You Witness This HIT & RUN?



We got a call today from a very upset Mom.  She heard us talking about Lissa’s friend that hit a parked car this weekend, then left the scene.

Lissa agreed to talk to her friend again and try to convince her to come clean and find the owner of the vehicle. 

As for the Mom, she is still waiting.

Last Thursday, Diane Canfield’s 10 year old son Frank was hit by a car while riding his bike in Scranton.  Two women ran into the boy near Elm Street.

The driver told Frank to tell police that he fell off his bike.  Then they drove off in their blue car.

Diane told us her son is hospitalized with a broken leg & vertebrae.

Do you know anything about this accident?  If so you’re asked to call Scranton Police at 570.348.4212

How to Make a 12 year old Smile



How do you make a 12 yr old smile?  Take them to Lahey Family Fun Park in Clarks Summit.

I had a blast there on Saturday hosting my monthly Big Brother event and so did our newest little, David.




Lahey has 2 of the coolest mini-golf courses I've ever seen.  The 36 holes wind through a wooded area that overlooks the Lackawanna Valley.  And the course features 5 water falls & 7 streams.  I guess that's why they asked us if we wanted any extra balls for our game.



Next we hit the Bumper Boats.  It was great fun, but be prepared to get wet!



And Lahey also has a super-fast go cart track.



Add batting cages and a full arcade and you've got a great day of fun.

CLICK HERE to go to Lahey's website.

And Big Brothers/Big Sisters is always looking for volunteers.  Wouldn't you be willing to give up a few hours every month to make a difference in a young kid's life?

It's a great experience that will impact your life as well.

If you want to learn more about the Big Brother/Big Sister program CLICK HERE.

Or, shoot me an email.  rockyandsue@985krz.com

Wish You Were Here!


Sue and I took a nice little break after the 4th to head North to Maine to visit her folks.  1000+ miles later...we're back!!!



On our way to Bar Harbor (Bah-ha-buh) we found this funky bridge in Penobscot.



We jumped on a sailboat from this dock in Bar Harbor.



Captain Billy piloting The Chrissy, a former lobster sloop built in 1910.  We were the only ones aboard this little 6 person boat.



Walking path in Bar Harbor.  The water was a balmy 55 degrees!!!



Sue tried starting an avalanche atop Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park.  I had to take this photo, so I couldn't help.



The view from Cadillac Mountain, elevation 1532 feet.  It's the highest point along the North Atlantic Seaboard and the first place to see the sunrise in the U.S.!




Sailing & hiking made us thirsty.  We found this cool little microbrewery off the beaten path on the way out of Bar Harbor.  Great brew...BBQ...and live music.

Check out the Atlantic Brewing Company HERE.



We weren't done hiking yet!  Greetings from the summit of Mt. Battie, high above the beautiful town of Camden.

Sue and I always dread the 8 hour drive to Maine, plus another 2 to Bar Harbor, but it is well worth it.  If you're ever planning a trip to lobster country, give me a shout.  I'll steer you in the right direction.

You are all LIFESAVERS!



As I was biking around Harvey’s Lake yesterday morning, my thoughts drifted to where I was 3 years ago.

It seems like yesterday, yet it seems like a lifetime ago.

July 1, 2009. 
I was recovering at the Geisinger Heart Hospital following my heart surgery.  When I finally woke up from surgery which happened the day before, I had no memory of an entire day!  How could I have lost a day?

“It’s Wednesday!”, I remember my sister saying.

What the Hell happened to Tuesday? 

I was freaking.

That was the beginning of 4 weeks of recovery before I returned to work.

Again, it seems like a lifetime ago.

Was that really me feeling like I was 75 years old after my surgery?  I could barely walk to the end of the hall at Geisinger without getting short of breath.

And now I’m pedaling in the hot sun on a beautiful Sunday morning.

Medical science is simply amazing.  And I am forever grateful to my surgeon
Dr. Casale, my PA, all the nurses and the other specialists at the heart hospital.

I will think of you all every July for the rest of my life.

You are all LIFESAVERS!!!
