So it looks like Monday Morning Musings is moving to Tuesdays. I’ve been doing a social media segment on WGRR on Monday mornings, which makes writing the newsletter on Mondays impossible.
So now I have to come up with a new name. Tuesday Thoughts isn’t strong enough. It does qualify under my “must have alliteration or puns” rule, but it needs work.
In the meantime, your mild amusement at my mediocre musings will now happen on Tuesdays. Mark your calendars accordingly.
-Good Morning Tri-State producer Nick’s birthday was this weekend, and he got one heck of a gift from his 9-year-old niece Maddie. She wrote a GMTS “jingle” for us – complete with all of our names. That said, she may have been overstating that last part.
-So the Horseshoe Casino opened last night. Kendall Herold was out there reporting this morning and went inside to grab a quick bite for breakfast – and guess what? No food. Nothing’s open at 7 a.m. I would have thought for sure the buffet was open for breakfast. We must work on this. There has to be a place to overpay for eggs benedict and drop $20 in the slots while you wait.
-A couple of years ago, golfers Bubba Watson, Ben Crane, Rickie Fowler and Hunter Mahan put together a fake boy band called “Golf Boys” and made a rudimentary yet hilarious video, named – well – Golf Boys . It is surpassed only by the Making of Golf Boys . You have to love professional athletes who are a) willing to make fun of themselves, and b) willingly wear women's overalls and a scuba suit - twice.
This week, Golf Boys 2.Oh dropped. This time, they went high-end. Better production value, better writing (courtesy of actual musician Mat Kearney) and a great deal of golfer puns. Oh, the puns. This is my favorite thing so far this week. Nay, this quarter.
-I could tell you I don’t take pictures of my food and post it on Facebook or Instagram because it’s ridiculously self-centered, boring and makes your friends hate you, or I could just admit the truth: my food pics would basically be of yogurt containers or pretzels out of the bag or gummi bears or turkey sandwiches. Not exactly exciting. Still, I don’t want to see yours. Please. Keep your food to yourself.
What’s the end game here? Someone sees the great salad you just made and gets jealous? Or hungry? Or makes the same thing? What is it you want? Explain that and I’ll give you special dispensation.
From Today’s Show:
-Casino Ch-Ching: People were pouring out of the casino, even at 7 a.m. At least on day one, it’s well-attended. See the opening night festivities and such here .
-Super Double Coupons: If you’re into this sort of thing, today’s the day to hit up Remke-Bigg’s. It’s doubling coupons up to $1 today, meaning you can get up to $2 back on the products you buy. But it’s today only.

As if on cue. This Tumblr is “POHTPOF.” Pictures of hipsters taking pictures of food. FOR THE LOVE OF CHICKEN, PEOPLE. STOP.
