I grew up when Diff'rent Strokes was a popular television show. That's no big deal unless your last name is Willis. To this day I still hear those famous words popularized by Arnold: "Whatchu talkin bout Willis?" Usually they are uttered by someone looking at me as though I may have never heard it before. Yeah, right! Well this blog is what I (Willis) am talkin bout...my thoughts, observations & opinions. Enjoy...

RESPECT Yourself!

R.E.S.P.E.C.T.? Aretha what happened? I heard Jim Rome read an email from a listener the other day who asked about the national anthem rendition at the SuperBowl performed by Aaron Neville & American Idol Ruben Studdard! It went from there with a dozen hilarious emails: How many animals were killed to make Aretha's fur coat? Uh...a million! How did they get her in the stadium? They built it around her! I almost wrecked my car as I listened and laughed. Also, was it just me or was that the worst rendition of the anthem that you have ever heard?

I miss listening to Rome. Our local station that carried him changed its format. Doh!

I wish I could have heard him go off on this subject.

And I am still missing Tony Kornheiser on free radio. But I heard that he will join the MNF booth in the fall.

Here in Hampton Roads 850AM (WTAR) just flipped to Fox Sports and they carry Rome noon to 3p. He kills me and some the emails and callers are hilarious. Tony on MNF should be good if he can ever get a word in with Joe Theisman there too!
