Just realized no updates on the blog since July. Summer flying by.
Since I haven’t been on air since it happened, a quick congratulations to Toni Marie Wiseman and Kenny Butler on the birth of their daughter Grace. She was born on Saturday August 7 at 12:20am. Weighed 8lbs 2 ounces and has a full head of brown hair. I interviewed Toni Marie last July so a lot has changed in a year. If you are a viewer of NTV it will be a few more months till you see her back on TV.
Last week the show was a rerun while I was in Toronto and that’s also the plan for this Friday. Get a bit of a break for yours truly as September is when things ramp up at the station.
Queen’s Football back on CFRC and earlier than usual. With the Waterloo Warriors steroid scandal and subsequent canceling of their football season that caused some scheduling headaches. After all was said and done Queen’s will open up the season on Tuesday night, August 31st. Road game in Hamilton against MacMaster. Originally I mentioned on the show it was a Sept. 1st afternoon game but that got pushed up a day.
Each OUA team gets a Bye Week this season. The Golden Gaels get Labour Day off. First home game is a Sunday, keep that in mind if you want to go or listen on the radio. After that we are back to the usual Saturday at 1pm starts for the rest of the year.

After working on every football broadcast over 4 seasons I’ll be reducing my work load. Taking some games off this year. Think I’ll finally have a chance to see the team play at the stadium. When you are the one at the station for 4 years during games, that pretty much eliminates a chance to witness a game in person.
