Do you like him too?
Are you obsessing over U.S. men's swimmer Ryan Lochte too?

LOVE. HIM. I'm kind of bummed that he didn't win gold in every event he's been in, but he's still adorable.

But did you hear that he wanted to wear is patriotic diamond-encrusted grill when he was on the winner podium receiving his gold medal? A U-S Olympic officaly said that if he wore the grill, he wasn't getting his medal. He chose to accept the medal instead, but it's pretty funny.

Do you golf?
Are you good at golf? I'm not that great, but I try. Yesterday was our company golf outing and Kidd and I usually drive around in the golf carts to say "hi" to people.

One guy was nice enough to use his club and take a swing.Of course I was nervous, everyone was watching and...I totally biffed the shot. It went only 20 yards in front of me. But hey, like my husband always says, at least it went straight.

Maybe I'll just stick to driving the golf cart :)

VIDEO: Packer Shareholders meeting
I was able to go to my first Packer Shareholders meeting on Tuesday at Lambeau in Green Bay! It was awesome. I had goosebumps when the suites came walking and below is the video of everyone cheering when they stepped onto the field.

And check out the new scoreboard in HD, awesome! The construction going on in the south endzone will also add 7,000 new seats. They are calling it the Sound Wall to hopefully give us more of an advantage when the other team is trying to score.

Have you seen this movie yet?
Wow, what a movie! I LOVED "Magic Mike!" Besides the hot guys, it was actually really funny at times.

The biggest surprise for me was how funny Matthew McConaughey's character was in the movie! He played the role of club owner perfectly.

My only complaint, was how it ended. It kind of made me feel like there should have been more to see.  But then I read from actor Channing Tatum that a sequel is in the works...can't wait for it!

LOVE these songs!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these two songs we play on The Mix, "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen and "Somebody That I Used To Know" by Gotye and when I saw that an Indy group did a mash-up between them, I was SO EXCITED!!!

Take a listen, let me know what you think?

Coolest view of Milwaukee
Have you visited Lakeshore State Park yet? If you're like me, you're probably thinking, "where?"

It's one of the newest state parks in Wisconsin and it's on the other side of the Summerfest grounds. My husband Aaron and I walked there for the first time this week and it really is so beautiful and a gorgeous view of the city's skyline.

Just park behind the Marcus Ampitheater and head north, you'll love it! It really is a great way to showcase our awesome city!

Better than '50 Shades' of Grey'???
Now that I'm done with Fifty Shades of Grey my sister (a librarian) suggested I read this book Bared To You by Sylvia Day.

I'm not done with it yet, but it's pretty HOT and just like Christian Grey, the guy has it going on!!!

A brand new color!
What color nail polish do you put on your toes when you get a pedicure?

I went in for mine and I picked a brand new shade. I was tired of all the purples, pinks and reds so I opted for this bronze shade - and I really like it.

Sometimes, change is fun!

A new visitor
Every now and then we have kids that call up and want to visit the studio. Jessica, a 7th grader from East Troy has been trying to schedule a visit to see the radio station for months!

Finally, after weeks of trying to put this on the calendar, she was able to come in and visit with her family and best friend Heather.

She's been listening to The Mix for years and she wants to be on the radio when she grows up. It was a pleasure meeting her and maybe one day we'll be working together.

USA Women Grab FIFA Gold
It's official. The USA Women's Soccer team defeated Japan last night in Vancouver, and took home FIFA's World Cup. That makes them the first women's team to win a third World Cup. It was an amazing game. USA's Carli Lloyd scored three goals on her own in the first half - something that's never been done in a World Cup final match. The final was 5-2. Watch the folks at ESPN break it down. And go USA!

Dave Grohl's Back, on a Throne
A couple of weeks ago, Dave Grohl broke his leg falling off-stage during a concert in Sweden. He got patched up quick - not a permanent fix, but enough to get him back on stage - and he finished up the show. Then he took a little time off to recuperate. He's still on that road to recovery, but that didn't stop him from kicking off the Foo Fighters' North American tour on Saturday at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC. He's still got his leg in a cast, but he performed anyway, sitting most of the time with his leg propped up. His seat was fashioned like the Iron Throne from Game of Thrones, made of guitars instead of swords. Check out the show's open... The video's not great, but you can capture the spirit of the thing...

Game of Hot Dogs
Hold the presses! Close the grills! The King of Hot Dog Eating has been dethroned. It's official. Joey Chestnut, who's won Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest every 4th of July for the past eight years, was knocked off Saturday by Matt "The Megaload" Stonie, who managed to down 62 hot dogs - buns and all - in 10 minutes. The next closest competitor managed only 32 hot dogs and buns in that same timeframe. I'll bet these guys don't get invited to a lot of cookouts...

And Now, the Rest of the Story
A week or so ago, we posted a video of a guy who parked illegally in a handicapped spot. Somehow, his car was covered in some sort of blue substance to teach him a lesson. We couldn't really tell what that substance was, as the video wa kind of grainy. Here's a much better video - showing a group of people plastering the car with blue and white Stick-It notes. Looks like they have more uses than we knew. Check out the whole video - it's worth watching.

Not Again... Yes Again!
Years from now, psychologists will do studies to figure out why the Sharknado franchise is so popular. By then, we'll be up to Sharknado 47. The folks behind the franchise are sequel geniuses. And they talk about it in the trailer: "While those other movies wait years, even decades, to release sequels, we give the people what they want as soon as it’s sort of ready…" Sharknado took aim at Los Angeles. Sharknado 2 took a bite out of the Big Apple. And now Sharknado 3 is coming, taking aim at the entire East Coast. And guess what? You and millions of others will be watching. You know you will.

Animal Park's Got Talent!
Okay, this is stupid and dumb - but I guarantee it will make you laugh. Some folks were driving through an animal park when they came up to a zebra. This wasn't any ordinary zebra. This was the Mister Ed of zebras, and he was willing to sing for his supper. Like I said, stupid, and dumb. But funny!

Step Aside, XXL - Regular Mike is in the House
Let's face it, Magic Mike XXL sets a very high bar for men. Chiseled, easy on the eyes, the subjects of fantasy. For the rest of us, that sets the standard impossibly high. So thank goodness for this answer to Magic Mike XXL. Regular Mike M/L. That's more like it. Guys, I think we can live up to this, don't you?

Her Name is Heavenly Joy, and Boy, Is She Ever
Every once in a while, something joyous happens on America's Got Talent. Here's one of those moments. A 5-year-old named Heavenly Joy wowed the judges and the audience with her audition piece, singing a song from Frozen and tap dancing too. What's even more impressive is the way she handled herself in the spotlight, and with the judges - and what she plans to do with the money if she wins the big prize of $1,000,000. An amazing kid!

Uncle Sam's Crying a Little

Barack Obama, the Voice of America
President Obama visited Tennessee this week to talk some more about Obamacare. He ran into a guy at a town meeting whose real name was Davy Crockett. The President pointed out that Davy wasn't wearing a beaver cap - Davy was very nice and said he had one at home. If POTUS were to do a little fact-checking, I think he'd find that it was a racoon cap. But that's not important. Davy had a problem with Social Security, and the president promised to look into it. Then he sang a snippet from the theme song to the old TV serie, Davy Crockett. He's been doing a lot of singing lately. It wouldn't surprise me at all if he ended up hosting The Voice when his term is done...

Bruce Springsteen Jumps On Brian Wilson's Encore
So this happened. Brian Wilson was playing a concert at the PNC Banks Arts Center in New Jersey on Wednesday. In the middle of his encore, Bruce Springsteen - the King of New Jersey - popped up on stage and started singing harmony on "Barbara Ann." The boys in the band were able to coax him centerstage for "Surfin' USA," and he even strapped on a guitar to trade a few licks with the other guitarists. Check out the video - the guy shooting doesn't seem to realize exactly what he was capturing, and it's a little shaky, but you get the idea. And check out the backstage picture of Brian and Bruce underneath it.   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Bruce joined Brian Wilson on stage for surprise performances of "Barbara Ann" and "Surfin USA" last night in New Jersey. Here they are backstage with Blondie Chaplin before the show. Posted by Bruce Springsteen on Thursday, July 2, 2015

Now You Can Stuff Your Own Donnie T
This one's just too funny not to share. An artist in Mexico got pretty upset with what Donald Trump had to say about his country and the country's inhabitants. So Dalton Avalos Ramirez of Reynosa, Mexico made a pinata in The Donald's likeness. Not just a little one either. This one's life-size. Let's have some fun and have one sent to each of the other Republican presidential candidates so they can start beating it up - the way many of them have been beating up the pinatas inspiration lately.     #DonaldTrump #MexicoTeOdia #OjalayPierdasTuCandidatura #EresUnAsco A photo posted by Piñateria Ramirez (@pinateria_ramirez) on Jun 18, 2015 at 7:05pm PDT

Liev Schreiber Talks Voiceovers
Liev Schreiber's one of those guys you've seen in movies and liked in movies, but you can never remember his name. Yeah, he's that guy. He was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! the other night to talk about the return of his series, Ray Donovan, to Showtime next weekend. And he and Jimmy started talking about the voiceover work Liev's done over the years. Like the time he played the Frito Bandito on the unemployment line. But the fun one that he recreated was doing the play-by-play on the 1936 X-Treme Games (which didn't of course happen). Check it out.

Thank You, Donald Trump, from America
Don't let the headline fool you. It's not the country saying thank you to the Republican presidential candidate. It's the actress. America Ferrara of Ugly Betty fame. She wrote a thank you letter to Donald Trump for all the nasty remarks he made about Mexicans. In a very polite way, she pretty much told him those words could easily bite him in el culo. “Dear Donald. You’ve said some pretty offensive things about Latino immigrants recently, and I think they’re worth addressing. Because, you know, this is the United States of America, where I have the right to speak up even if I’m not a billionaire. Isn’t that awesome? “Remarks like yours will serve brilliantly to energize Latino voters and increase turnout on election day against you and any other candidate who runs on a platform of hateful rhetoric... You are running for President in a country where the Latino population grew by over 49 percent from 2000-2012, while the rest of the country grew by 5.8 percent.” By the way, The Donald isn't backing down. Because he's The Donald, after all.

"The Authorities Would Tell Us!"
If you're a Walking Dead fan, you by now know about the prequel series, Fear the Walking Dead. It's about the time when whatever causes humans to become zombie and start killing other humans hits the planet. AMC released another trailer for it last week, and it's less frightening than the one before it that showed a guy running down the street, shirt wide open, trying to keep his pants from falling down. This one shows a kid talking about "reports" he's hearing, and a mother figure telling him he spends too much time on the Internet. Sounds more like a reality show if you ask me... I don't know. Maybe you'll get something out of this?

Siri Gets Feisty
Aaron Paul's all over this one, and it's suddenly all the rage. The Breaking Bad star tweeted about something that seems to push Apple's digital assistant over the virtual brink. "What is zero divided by zero?" Technically, there's no answer, because you can't divide by zero, because division by zero is undefined. When you come right down to it, Siri's answer - while exhibiting a silicon chip on her shoulder - makes far more sense.   Ask Siri "what is zero divided by zero?" RIGHT. NOW. — Aaron Paul (@aaronpaul_8) June 30, 2015 Siri's response: “Imagine that you have zero cookies, and you split them evenly among zero friends. How many cookies does each person get? See? It doesn’t make sense... And Cookie Monster is sad that there are no cookies... And you are sad that you have no friends.” If you want to try it yourself,it apparently only works on iOS8...

"It's Centered on Love"
On MSNBC the other night, George Takei - best known as Ensign Sulu on the original Star Trek TV series - visited The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell to discuss marriage equality. George is a champion for gay rights, and Lawrence wanted to get his reaction to Donald Trump's comments about believing in "traditional marriage." George, who was on a season of The Apprentice, talked about having lunch with Donald one day, and asking him how a guy who'd been divorced three times could call his marriages "traditional." It's a pretty interesting interview, but I have to admit, I was tempted to say "Take it to Warp Three, Mister Sulu" about 20 times...

What to Do with that Leftover Watermelon
Tomorrow's the 4th of July. There will be cookouts and gatherings, and lots of people bringing lots of food to other people's houses. Often, some people bring the same thing. So, what do you do with that extra watermelon after everyone's eaten their fill? Simple. You set it on one end, and start wrapping elastics around its middle. Eventually, it will provide you and your friends with some sweet exploding summertime goodness. Here's your tutorial video...

Hammertime, SketchShe Style
You've seen the girls of SketchShe before. It started a few months ago with their in-car rendition of "Bohemian Rhapsody." They lip-synched and acted out the song while driving along, sort of like in Wayne's World, but better. Now they're taking on MC Hammer, and doing it in a golf cart. And on a golf course. And it's pretty funny. Certainly up to SketchShe standards. Check it out.     (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); 'U Can't Touch This!'

The Return of Rocky
Just when you thought Rocky Balboa was down for the count, he's back. This time, he's playing the role of the crusty old trainer - the part Mickey played in Rocky's upbringing. And Rocky's trainee?

What Say You on The Donald, Jon Stewart?
Okay, this one's a few days old, but well worth watching. On The Daily Show the other night, Jon Stewart was beside himself on the news that Donald Trump hadn't yet officially filed his paperwork to seal the deal on his presidential candidacy. Jon's been hoping and praying for Trump's candidacy, just to make his last six weeks on the show palatable... And now... Well, see how Jon reacted...

Freddie Not Impressed by Kanye
Yesterday, we took a look at the abomination others called Kanye West's cover of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." We weren't the only ones who were thinking that. Check out this amazing mashup of Freddie Mercury "reacting" to Kanye's performance. And then Kanye "reacting" to Freddie's performance. If it doesn't make you laugh, there is no hope.   And by the way, to those who might think that Freddie actually had something to say - as I saw a few times on Facebook yesterday - please keep in mind that Freddie passed away in 1991.

Alex Trebek Goes All Fresh Prince
On Jeopardy! the other night, the category was TV. Dollar value: $800. Clue: "In the theme to this 90's sitcom, "I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8, & I yelled to the cabbie, 'Yo, Homes, smell ya later!'" Correct answer, and sort of a no-brainer: "What is 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air?'" What made it memorable, and in my mind, just a little creepy, was the way Alex Trebek read the clue. I'm sure he was going for a rap style, trying to imitate Will Smith, but it sounded more like a cross between Kelsey Grammer's Frasier and Orson Welles. Plus, he pronounced "later" as "lay-terr," not "lay-tah." No self-respecting rapper would do that, Alex!
