So, I arrived home at a decent hour one night last week, and Mrs. McKay had the local news channel on.<br><br>
Apparently, there had been an explosion a short time ago at a strip mall in the area, caused by a gas leak. They were airing a live feed, showing firefighters and police pulling people out from the collapsed building.<br><br>
When they cut back to the studio, I was a tad bit disturbed by the near-orgasmic excitement of the female news anchor (granted, this particular person is notorious for such behavior.)<br><br>
I realize that the greater metro area is only the 38th largest media market, but you'd think there would be a higher level of professionalism.

What's that funny person's name here in Denver, bux?<br><br>
All I can think of is the Family Guy, and their funny local newspeople!

Do you mean poor Asian reporter Trisha Takanawa?<br><br><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
And what is their weather guy's name? Ollie? And the traffic guy?<br><br>
So terribly inappropriate, but that show is funny.

Tom: And now to our weatherman Ollie Williams for the Blackie-Weather Forecast, Ollie?<br>
Olie: IT'S RAININ' SIDEWAYS!<br>
Tom: Don't you have an umbrella?<br>
Olie: USED TO!<br>
Tom: Where is it now?<br>
Olie: INSIDE OUT TWO MILES AWAY!<br>
Tom: Is there anything we can do for you?<br>
Olie: BRING ME SOME SOUP!<br>
Tom: What kind?<br>
Olie: CHUNKY!<br>
Tom: Thanks, Ollie. Up next, a pig that refuses to eat Jews. After this.

Oh, and if there's any sort of incliment weather in the forecast, the same station employs a weather person that acts like the four horsemen are on the horizon.

I've had it with all of our local news lately. They all blow.<br><br>
The sports dudes lates thing is to refer to all University of Illinois sports teams as "The O&B". Rather than the orange and blue, or their real name, the Fighting Illini.<br><br>
Last I knew, our athletic teams were not "the O&B". Shut the hell up, already!<br><br>

(and I triple heart Ollie Williams... <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"> )

Isn't it the Blacku Weather Forecast?<br><br>
But yes, funny stuff. I love how he yells. Always. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
We don't watch our local news because they are so bad. One night they kept saying "Tune in to find out about BOMBS BURIED IN YOUR BACKYARD!" Tune in at 10:00. Well shit, if there are bombs in my backyard, shouldn't I know now? Or shouldn't you just F-ING tell me what common household cleaner is poisoning me?<br><br>
I hate them.

Well, every morning, CNN goes to their <b><i>EXTREME WEATHER!</i></b> reports no matter what's going on. This morning, they were hyping the <b><i>EXTREME WEATHER!</i></b> in Ohio that could keep people from the polls. I walked outside and it was raining. Just barely.
