From Today’s GMTS:
In case you missed it (which I wouldn’t recommend, by the way) …
-Goepper Grabs Bronze: I’m going to admit something to you. I do not recall anything about the first hour and a half of GMTS today. I read plenty of scripts, even wrote some. But I was so distracted watching Lawrenceburg’s Nick Goepper in the men’s slopestyle skiing finals that the rest of it was just a blur.
So many things about his story are interesting. I shall itemize them, for easier reference.
GMTS Quote of the Week:
After much deliberation, the committee quote of the week is actually a tweet. And it’s mine. Again, this was a committee decision.
“Shh…don’t tell! Pay no mind to the caution tape! Our @Keurig is in here. I’ll take my chances. #9wakeup
It’s way better when you see the picture, so click the link. And follow me while you’re there if you like.
With one honorable mention from WCPO producer Tasha: "I got a bag of fried chicken in my purse. I'm willing to share."
-Have you heard? Chopper 9 is back! Watch for it every morning on GMTS.
-Beer soap. Now that I’ve got your attention – check out more unromantic Cincinnati Valentine’s gifts.
A place where I’m pretty much going to talk about anything I like that doesn’t fit to any other category.
I love me a good science fair. I mean LOVE. I loved doing experiments as a kid, and loved it that my daughter did her first project this year. She's headed to NKU for the regional competition next, so my excitement continues.
Viral Video of the Day:
This is terrible, but you will be unable to stop watching. It’s Billy Ray Cyrus’s remix of Achy Breaky Heart. And you thought it couldn’t get any worse. Four million views and counting.

How about killing time with a tattoo generator? Yes, “Kiss My Grits” in Old English will do nicely.
