Boise State Victory, Big J's Life Lesson and Growing Change

  • Print

Morning After News: your Boise State Broncos pulled away with a “W” in a true nail biter on the blue turf last night. The boys in blue once again failed to score a single point on offense, but thanks to a stellar defensive performance and a beast named Michael “Bacon” Atkinson, they pulled in a pick-six, giving them a 7-0 lead on BYU. With just a few minutes left on the board, BYU punched in a TD of their own, bringing the score to 6-7. Going with a very ballsy move and aiming for the win, Bronco Mendenhall called for a two-point conversion. One incomplete pass and a bunch of white-knuckled onlookers later, your Boise State Broncos pulled in a 7-6 victory, moving their record to 2-1. Up next? The New Mexico Lobos @ 4PM in Albuquerque, New Mexico on September 29th.

Big J’s Life Lesson this week is to always prioritize. Point being, as much as The Big J loves him some Hatebreed, he will have to pass on the show this Sunday night due to putting family and business first. Why would Big J of all people miss a show like this? Well, take a glance at the week ahead: Monday is our Monday Night Football shenanigans out at Whammy’s Sports Bar (which might end at 1AM courtesy of the replacement officials), Tuesday is our all day festivities out at the Idaho Center for X-Fest, Wednesday the fellas will be flying out to Vegas directly after the morning show, with Thursday and Friday being action packed full of live broadcasts of The Morning After from Mandalay Bay, Rock Vegas, Radio Conventions, MorrisonCon, a plethora of Vegas entertainment, along with belligerence, losing the kid’s college funds, hookers and maybe even Mike Tyson’s tiger. So, all that being said, he needs some extra time on Sunday to spend with the family. Sorry Jamey Josta and Hatebreed, but family comes first.

The guys from Growing Change Inc. cruised by the studio today to chat up their non-profit charity along with a little upcoming event called “Metal 4 The Mountains,” which takes place tonight at the Old State Penitentiary. Please, support a great cause with some awesome metal!

Nic - II    Big J - I

Monday - Happy Birthday Peter Loeffler! Hard to pick a favorite Chevelle song which is probably why there was a tie between Anj's choice of The Clincer and Big J's choice of Send the Pain Below. Tie it is.  

Tuesday -  Songs that could use subtitles that make sense?  The tie goes to Nic with his choice of Pearl Jam Yellow Leadbetter although Big J's choice of Static X Cannibal was just as inaudiable.

Wednesday -  Happy Birthday Spike Jones!  Thank You for the awesome videos you gave us. Today's rock war ends in yet ANOTHER TIE.  Nic's choice of Tenacious D Wonderboy beats Big J's choice of Beastie Boys Sabotage.  Hard to chose for sure but somebody has to come out victorious. 

Thursday -  Reality shows are everywhere!  What band would you tune in to watch week after week?  Big J wins with All that Remains Stand up beating Nic's Puddle of Mudd Give me Shelter choice. 

Friday - In honor of Mark Zuckerberg delivering a speech in Chinese we will war with bilingual songs. Big J's Romstein America beats out  Nic's Beck Loser.
