Top 10 Lame Injuries

Yesterday I admitted on air to hurting my neck...pumping gas.  My sad attempt to feel better was to find someone with a lamer injury. 

We can ALWAYS count on Rocky & Lissa listeners to win in a game of CAN YOU TOP THIS?

The following our actual lame injuries from real-life KRZ listeners.

I now present (drum roll please)...


10--I did a risky business type slide across a hardwood floor. I broke my elbow, had to get surgery with pins, plates, & screws & had six months of physical therapy.

9--My hubby threw his back out putting his pants on.

8--I sneezed in the shower and pulled a muscle in my neck.

7--My son broke his leg doing a victory dance while playing beer pong

6--I was sitting at a table putting on mascara and sent my back into a major spasm.  I couldn't walk for the rest of the day and it took about a week for it to clear up.

5--I pulled muscle in back bending over the sink to spit while brushing my teeth.

4--I coughed and got a hernia

3—I gave myself a black eye trying to untangle the dog leash.

2—We still have a co-worker out on workers comp.  She threw out her back clicking the computer mouse…6 months ago!

1--I sneezed and farted simultaneously and pulled a groin muscle in the middle of a staff meeting.

(We're still trying to verify #1.  If it's you, please call our show immediately!!!)

Toast with the Most

Hopefully you learned an important lesson on today's show:  when giving a toast to the Bride & Groom at their wedding, it's best to go conservative.  If you're not a funny person, don't try to be with a live mic and a few drinks under your belt.

Here's a few examples from KRZ listeners of toasts that went horribly wrong.

Lesson learned?


I was at a college friend’s wedding where the best man not only called the bride the groom’s ex gf's name during the best man speech, but he was also later escorted from the reception by the groom’s father for trying to drink the water from the centerpieces.

My sister was my maid of honor. She was trying to be funny but wasn’t successful and by the end of her speech, people were asking why she was in our wedding if she hated us so much.

My best (male) friend had gotten married. I was the Bride's Maid (since I introduced them) and my buddy's obnoxious older brother was

Best man. He started out his toast ok, but then pulled a Cybil and mentioned when they both went to Tijuana and thought they got clap from 2 girls they picked up, only to find out they had bites from bed mites. The room got quiet and I had to jump in to stop him.

I was maid of honor in my sister’s wedding. I didn't make an embarrassing speech because I promised my sister but I proceeded to get really drunk and gave everyone lap dances!

My bro best man, said "not sure what that pastor was smoking".  My wife's family is very religious. Ummm did not go over well.

I went 2 a wedding earlier this year & the best man (which was the groom’s brother) got up 2 make a speech & was drunk & in his speech told everyone that he slept w/ the bride the day before the wedding!

Just went to a wedding where the best man talked about the bride being a reformed whore.  He talked about the time he and the groom took home these girls that turned out to be men and that he wanted to sleep with the bride’s sister.

I was at a wedding and the best man said in front of everyone that he and the bride were sleeping together for quite some time and then starts laughing and says oh I'm only kidding.  And then he says no really I honestly I would really like to have sex with the bride she's hot so if this marriage doesn't last I would really like to have sex with her.  She looks like she would be fun in bed!

As part of the best man speech he let it slip that the bride was pregnant.

Weekend in Pics

It was a big time KIDS WEEKEND for yours truly.  Saturday I hosted my monthly Big Brother event.  This month we raced go-carts at Pike's Creek in Lehman which is always a good time.  The newest little in the BBBS program, Chase, has some serious skills behind the wheel!

But, you didn't think I was gonna let him win, did you?

We wrapped up a fun day with a trip to Hillside Dairy to feed the animals and feed ourselves with the best ice cream around.

Think you would like to make a difference in a young kid's life?  Why don't you volunteer to be a Big Brother or Big Sister today.

CLICK HERE for info.

Sunday I hosted out Ultimate Dad's Day contest at PNC Field with the WBS Railriders.

Dads were able to play catch on the field before the game.

Dads enjoyed a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to share some quality time on the all-new PNC Field.  It was an early Fathers Day gift and the Dads loved it!!!

A Rare Showing of Common Sense
It was a story that seemed to hit the news with little fanfare:  The TSA dropped its effort to allow small planes on knives.

Back in March suddenly small knives, banned since Sept 11, 2001 were once again allowed on planes.  The head of the Transportation Security Administration claimed at the time that TSA agents would have more time to focus on more important things then measuring the length of knives.

So let me get this straight.  My bottled water would be confiscated, but if I had a Swiss Army knife in my pocket it was perfectly ok for me to board the plane.

Wasn’t it a sharp object (box cutter) that enabled the September 11th terrorists to hijack 4 planes?  And why would any passenger need to have a knife of any kind at 30,000 feet other than to slice peanuts in half to make their in-flight snack last longer?

So, thank you TSA, for not only showing common sense, but responding to the requests of pilots and flight attendants.

Freddie's Sexy Photo Shoot

It's the SEXY PHOTO SHOOT we hope you've been waiting for!  Yesterday Fast Freddie paid off his "Dancing with the Stars" bet and posed with the crew from YOUR PIXEL PERFECT of Scranton.

This one was inspired by a classic "Seinfeld" episode.

Kramer: George, it's the timeless art of seduction. You gotta join in the dance. She sends you an enticing photo, you send her one right back.
George: Well, I don't know.
Kramer: Well, as you know, I've always been something of a photog.
Jerry: Oh, yeah, I like this idea.

Nice sign placement here, Freddie!

We hear the crew at YOUR PIXEL PERFECT was caught off guard when Freddie walked out of the dressing room with nothing but a guitar covering his naughty bits.

BIG THANKS to Sandy & Ed at YOUR PIXEL PERFECT for doing an amazing job.

Remember, for the month of June, if you mention you heard about them on 98.5 KRZ, they will take $50 off Senior pictures or photo booth rentals.

We highly recommend YOUR PIXEL PERFECT for your wedding photos, family or Senior portraits and Boudoir sessions.

Call them at 877.2829 or visit
