TV Weatherman Cory McCloskey Hilariously Rolls With It After Weather Map Goes Haywire

Cory-McCloskey1

(PCM) We all know that the state of Arizona can have some absolutely scorching temperatures, but upwards of 2,000 degrees?  That is downright apocalyptic, however that is just one of the haywire temperatures that the weather map featured during a recent news broadcast by weatherman Cory McCloskey.

Never missing a beat, McCloskey hilariously continued to roll with the broadcast cracking jokes when suddenly his weather map began showing numbers that were absolutely insane. For example the map showed the city of Ahwatukee, Az at 1270 degrees and McCloskey deadpanned “I’m not authorized to evacuate Ahwatukee, but that temperature seems pretty high”.

As the news anchors begin to giggle off camera, McCloskey continued with his jokes saying that Wickenburg that showed a temperature high of 2385 was a “total loss” before referring to several “safe spots” that just so happened to show the correct temperatures.

McCloskey is a veteran weatherman and has been with FOX 10 in Phoenix since 2001. The station posted a statement about the incident saying that sometimes live news and technology just doesn’t cooperate, however it is of great importance to have smart people who can think fast on their feet.

McCloskey has certainly proved that!  You can watch his hilarious weather broadcast in the video below:

Marshawn Lynch is Missing The Super Bowl

marshawn-lynch-crotch-grab(PCM) Seattle Seahawks franchise back Marshawn Lynch doesn’t like the press. Other famous players have also hated the press. Some recall Hall of Fame left handed pitcher Steve Carlton of the Philadelphia Phillies refused any contact with the press for years in the clubhouse. For the record, Carlton didn’t have the same rules as players today, he was able to genuinely avoid the press. Marshawn Lynch cannot.

Players have every right to dislike press. After all, media in general operates in a cycle, make someone a star, then tear them down. Build them up again. The cycle can repeat over and over because newsworthy people are either a celebrity on the rise, or a celebrity on the decline.

Marshawn Lynch is aware of that. While many call his required press time antics genius, there is something sad to be said for Marshawn. It’s the life experience of where he is in life. Most recently, he’s missing the Super Bowl. Of course he’s not going to physically miss out, and yes he is playing too. Yet most people never get to experience popularity, popular events or notable achievement.

Marshawn Lynch is missing the Super Bowl experience. Sure he has a right to privacy. Reaching superstar heights in the NFL seems to obviously force you into the spotlight. Why not enjoy it? There is no doubt Marshawn’s current position makes it clear he’s not happy. And that is sad.

marshawn-lynch-crotch-grab-cardinalsHe’s not a bad person, he’s avoided that image despite his crotch grabbing in the endzone slights. When some sly reporters have asked him about his charity work, he’s broken from his pat “I’m just here so I won’t get fined.” routine to instruct reporters to come to those events and he’ll talk about those causes.

Marshawn isn’t a fool, but he is a clown. Much of his street laden talk shows he’s a humble man that may have social anxiety issues, and if that is true he would do well to expose that openly and he’ll get less and less reporters coming at him forcing him to do his blank stare and no answer routine. Until his clears this up, he’s making himself look somewhat the fool. It’s hard to argue that he’s not.

Marshawn is no genius. He’s a football player that’s as much known for his behavior towards the press as he is for performing off the field. When he’s not longer a player, his in jeopardy of his press behavior legacy overshadowing his on field accomplishments.

marshawn-lynch-super-bowlMarshawn Lynch is missing the Super Bowl. Instead of spending this week bonding with fans through the press, he’s angry in his isolation. Yes, he has family that loves him and knows him for who he really is. That is not the point. The point is the Super Bowl experience is something few ever come in contact with.  Marshawn Lynch may appreciate his accomplishment of making it to the Super Bowl and perhaps winning it too, but years from now he’ll understand that he enjoyed much less than he could have. He’ll wish he could step back in time and do it differently.

Marshawn understands the media. He knows he can’t control what others write, and he may even fear it a bit, which is why he won’t speak to them. He feels the less he gives them, the less they can change, get wrong or worse. What Marshawn doesn’t understand is the media will going to write things regardless. He’s a celebrity, like it or not. Why not enjoy it instead of fight it, as he may never reach a Super Bowl again.

Rob-McKuen1

(PCM) One of the history’s best selling poets, the Oscar nominated Rod McKuen has sadly passed away at the age of 81.

McKuen died while at a rehabilitation center in Beverly Hills, California where he was being treated for a bout of pneumonia. McKuen had been hospitalized with the illness for several weeks and was unable to digest any foods.

McKuen pretty much stepped out of the limelight back in 1981, however prior to then he had released hundreds of poems, songs and records throughout his career. He was nominated for an Oscar for the song “Jean” from the 1969 film “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie”.

Many people throughout the years were absolutely captivated by McKuen’s work and his material was recorded by various celebrities over the years including Frank Sinatra, Madonna and Dolly Parton to name a few. He, himself, with his incredible signature voice recorded over 200 albums and has released at least 30 books of poetry.

Majority if McKuen’s best known work was released in the late 1960’s and he was able to write in a style that was easily accessible to everyone. During the height of his career he would sometimes write at least one song or poem per day and he had absolutely no literary or musical training.

McKuen made several appearances on The Late Show with Johnny Carson and also formed a production company with Rock Hudson. He was constantly on the road as well until taking a much needed break back in 1981.

Some of his most quoted phrases are “Listen to the warm” and “It doesn’t matter who you love, or how you love, but that you love.” Many of his books are now out of print, however he still continued to churn out new poetry and also did some voice-over work for Disney in his later years.

Our sincere condolences go out to the the family and friends of Rod McKuen during this incredibly difficult time.

Go Daddy Pulls Controversial Puppy Ad Prior To The Super Bowl

Go-Daddy1

(PCM) Amid a ton of critical backlash on social media Go Daddy has announced their decision to pull their controversial puppy commercial from airing during the Super Bowl.

The ad, which was titled “Journey Home” featured an adorable puppy that get lost after falling out of the back of a pick-up truck. “Buddy” (the puppy) eventually manages to find his way home and his owners are overjoyed to see him … why? Because they have just sold him online using a website they created from Go Daddy.

Immediately everyone was up in arms about the commercial, as it was seen as promoting private breeding and puppy mills. A petition was started via Change.org to have the commercial pulled. Those offended by the ad claim that there are plenty of shelter dogs who are searching for forever homes or to be euthanized. The petition also states that Go Daddy is also promoting the purchasing of animals offline and to portray animals rights as something funny or satirical is very irresponsible and cruel of the company.

 

There was a news release on Go Daddy’s website prior to the airing of the commercial which stated that “Buddy” had been adopted by the company and has the role of Chief Companion Officer. The release also mentioned the planned Super Bowl commercial that featured “Buddy”.

The ad’s creator claims that it was created to “reflect the journey of small business owners who have to be tenacious to triumph”.  It was also rumored to be Go Daddy’s way of poking a little bit of fun at the Budweiser commercials that also feature a puppy.

Go Daddy said they were floored by the amount of highly emotional and direct responses they received after previewing the ad and upon serious consideration reached the ultimate decision to pull the ad from the Super Bowl.

The company already has a back-up ad in place, which makes us suspicious that they many have already expected something like this to come out of the “Buddy” ad, and they promise to deliver laughs during the Big Game. .
