Morning After with Skippy


Show Me The Money!

A Fresno man won $69k on Wheel of Fortune this week... Two years after his wife won $50k on the same show. He wasn't the obvious winner from the beginning either. He totally creeped up on his opponents and took them out by the final round. He happens to be a pastor so it's not clear if it's divine intervention or really good luck mixed with solid puzzle skills.

The game shows I've enjoyed have included Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy and of course, Price is Right... which I suck at all of them. Given a chance to play any game show, I think I'd go with the old school Press Your Luck game only because I'd want to say "no whammies!" In writing this blog, I found out there was a big scandal on that game as well that involved a smart con man memorizing patterns and winning a modern equivalent of $254k in just one day. Click here for the story.

So your turn... what game show do you think you'd do really well on? Have you ever been on a televised game show? Let me know on social media or give me a call at 559-228-1041 for a chance to win tickets to Grizzly Fest courtesy of the Table Mountain Casino Prize Window.

​Are Leggings Really Pants? What Clothes Do You Hate?

Two women were not allowed onto a flight when they failed to meet dress code standards as they were clad in leggings. To clarify, they weren't regular passengars. They were employee guests who are subject to the same dress code as employees and in this case, the airline doesn't allow form fitting pants of that nature.

I'll be honest. I was not a fan of leggings. I wear workout pants for the gym and whatnot but I didn't own a pair of leggings until I got a job (because I have a career outside of this one) where jeans weren't allowed except for on Fridays. I didn't understand how leggings were considered appropriate and not jeans but whatever, off to the store I went because I wasn't going to wear slacks and I limit my dress/skirt days. So as I write this, I'm wearing leggings. Are they pants? I'll tell you one thing about wearing leggings... you've got to be really accountable to your diet and exercise routine because otherwise, you'll try and put those jeans on and realize they obviously shrank... right?

So are leggings pants? And what kinds of clothing do you absolutely hate? And trust me, I know lots of people hate the leggings. Weigh in here or at 559-228-1041 for a chance to win tickets to Grizzlyfest courtesy of the Table Mountain Casino Prize Window.

Must. Watch. TV.

We are all guilty of watching garbage on TV... Chaz included his week as he found himself in a Bay Area hotel watching a combination of TV coverage of the NFL Combine and a Chinese newscast without subtitles. Please note that Chaz does not speak Chinese.

I don't watch a lot of TV on my own (although I am sometimes sucked into whatever the kids watch because I want cuddles). I allow myself to watch shows mostly if I'm working out in my living room and it's things like Narcos lately.... except for when I watch my most mindless selection, "iZombie." It's the zombie show I can watch and still sleep at night and it doesn't require me to think much while I'm sweating. Seriously, I feel like I'm 13 watching it. But Major is hot so...

Your turn.

​Let It Go...

This morning we talked about mornings starting off crappy and whether or not you can turn that around... I'm of the "yes" opinion while Drew takes a little more convincing.

All that arguing aside, I recommended this video online to help you deal with the daily BS without blowing a head gasket. I think you'll get something from it.

Deadpool is Back! Oh and I saw Logan.

Opening weekend for "Logan" also including a sweet surprise... a teaser trailer for the return of everyone's favorite fouth mouthed anti-hero, Deadpool.

Check out the trailer in case you missed it... or watch it again because it show's his bare ass on the glass.

Also, as for "Logan"- what a solid movie. I have no X-Men exposure (well other than seeing the first Deadpool movie) and it wasn't really necessary to enjoy this one. Sure there were things I probably could have better understood with some knowledge of how the movie got to this point, but still, super good. That's my review. Rad. Awesome. Don't take small children because aside from the profanity, the violence is graphic. Claws through faces, gaping wounds, just brutal and rated R for a reason. Also, consider this your warning- it's gonna hit you right in the feels.

And even as an old, grumpy, sick Wolverine, Hugh Jackman is still gorgeous.
