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 - I   Big J - IIII

Monday - It's Columbus Day and Thanksgiving in Canada all in one day.  We are thankful for Canadian bands so we would like to war over it.  Big J wins with Danko Jones I think Bad Thoughts. Nic loses with Hail the Villian Take back the Fear.  No Nickelback here. 

Tuesday -  Zombies are the new Kardashians and The Walking Dead is HOT right now.  Zombie songs are very appropriate for todays rock war.  Another victory for Big J with Letters From The Fire Zombies in the Sun and another loss for Nic with Miser Zombie (remake of The Cranberries song)

Wednesday -  Who would we like to see collaborate with the Foo Fighters on David Letterman? Awesome choice by Big J of Simon and Garfunkle The Boxer wins the tie today beating Nic's choice of Rage Against the Machine Bulls on Parade. 

Thursday -  Brotox? Manscaping can be bad enough but throwing in botox and facials and crap for men is just not natural.  Big J wins AGAIN with his choice of TOO MUCH brotox for Vince Neil beating Nic's choice of NOT ENOUGH brotox with Iggy Pop. 

Friday - Mayor Beiter doesn't like ACHD?  Strange collaboration to begin with.  Worst collaboration songs?  Nic has his FIRST VICTORY of the week with the atrocious My Chemical Romance and The Used version of Under pressure.  Big J's choice of Josey Scott and Chad Kroger Hero was pretty awful as well..
