Remind us to make sure Jennifer has a couple of beers in her before every show. There’s a definite tone to this episode in which Phil Hulett, Jennifer Bjorklund, Jay Campadonia and Chris Martin tackle Super Bowl weekend. From our AccuWeather meteorologist to food to beer talk with expert Jim Loughren to ultimately laying bets on who will win. Odds maker Chris took action against his Broncos to win spot. Jennifer gave up 7 points for a Seahawks win (did we mention she had been drinking?) Phil laid 2 points and went as far as to pinpoint the final score: Seattle 21 Denver 19. Let this be a record of the prediction. Tech guru Jeremy Anticouni checked in to talk Silk Road, Bitcoin, Snapwire, Yahoo Hack and Net Neutrality. Certified Financial Planner Alan Goodstein visited the studio to update us on new tax laws and convince Phil to hire a CPA instead of doing his own taxes. Enjoy the hijinx.
With Jennifer arriving late and Jay leaving early, you’d think this show would devolve into chaos. You’d be right. From Phil’s sprinkler-like saliva glands, to Jay’s grammar bomb, to Jen’s cupcakes, to Chris’ epic journey, to Stark’s uncontrollable laughter, somehow the team was still able to pull together a great show. Featured were: Bitcoins accepted at Las Vegas Casinos, What to do about Robocalls, and Huge waves in Hawaii destroying the North Shore coastline and tempting big wave surfers. Plus the legend of Eddie Aikau, texting lettuce, racist fraternity, hero kid, Bulimic Barbie, burrito throw-down and more.

Jay had another run in with the opposite sex. We think he learned a valuable lesson this time. Phil mistook Stevie Wonder for Michael Jackson…and nobody will let him forget it. Casey Piotrowski is the author of the book, The Beatles 50 Most Memorable Moments. He visited the studio to review some of his fondest memorials, including his “feelings” for Yoko.
