My words to live by are from the great football philosopher Vince Lombardi who once said:
It's time for the big push!
It's such a simple phrase but it's so true, there are so many moments in your life where you don't want to do anything to make yourself better. You just let life beat you up! That's when you have to push yourself! Next time you pick yourself off the floor and "push" yourself when you didn't think you had anything left, thank football great Vince Lombardi! While your at it, thank the good Lord you didn't have Vince as your football coach cuz he seemed like he was just this side of crazy! Kidding Vince!

Weeknights 6-9pm OR
Mornings from 5am to 10am with Dani.
My real name… Pat Leuck
My assumed name when someone wants money from me...Alfonso Soriano
I’ve been in the Quad Cities since…I was born in Moline in 1957. My mom and dad swore early on I was a child prodigy. Later in their life they wondered aloud, what went so terribly wrong.
My favorite Hobbies…Golf and fishing. I also like to hunt....for bargains at the grocery store!
My favorite current TV Show…
I seem to like tv shows with no laugh track. Like "Community" or "Modern Family". Another show I like that has NO laugh track is "Criminal Minds" on CBS. You can't watch that show too much without a visit to your shrink. It's a little too dark for more than an hour or two at a time. I love watching the Cubs too. Even though I thought the Cubs played like a team that needed a laugh track in 2011. I don't mind listening to them on the radio either because I think Pat Hughes is one of the best play-by-play guys. I really enjoyed the way he and Ron Santo got along. With Ron no longer with us, it was weird listening to the games without him. It didn't help that the team wasn't any good either and by the looks of things the 2012 Cubs could be even worse! Here's hoping they aren't!!!! My All-time Favorite TV Show…Any old video of me....with hair. Even though there aren't many of those left in circulation. Very rare!
When I'm not working I like to get away to contemplate life and think of the good old days...when I had hair.
Always remember these words for both sides of a successful relationship: I was wrong, you were right, I'm sorry! I'll never do it again.....Even though you probably will!
The Farm's Krista Marie fell from the stage in Kentucky.
She wasn't injured... we hope.
A 19-year-old woman won top honors at the 14th Annual Okie Noodling Festival in Oklahoma, catching a 72-pound flathead catfish with her bare hands.
Lucy Millsap was the first woman in the history of the competition to win. She bagged first place and won $1500 in the 'Big Fish' category.
Noodling is a sport in which flathead catfish are caught by hand.
The method: Noodlers wave their arms around in a catfish hole. If all goes according to plan, the fish will latch onto the arm as a defensive measure and the noodler can bring the fish in.
~~ Tim McGraw went test-driving: A Ford Mustang GT500, a Dodge Challenger SRT8 and a Chevy Camaro ZL1 at Charlotte Motor Speedway courtesy of the fine folks at Pennzoil.
In the video, Tim shares some stories from his life that were directly involved with cars and driving.
~~Attention guys : Jana Kramer is HOT in black leather! Jana sings Nationwide Insurance's ‘On Your Side‘ jingle, and stars as a leather-clad anti-thief in their newest ‘Unburglar' commercial.
The commercial portrays two burglars going through a home, stealing a television, camera, and other personal home belongings.
Kramer replaces each item. The commercial ends with the infamous jingle that she sings.
Choosing an online or mobile food journal is mainly a matter of personal preference. Here, we highlight three free services that we like. (Many offer premium memberships, but you get all the basics with the free versions.) Do not hesitate to try them all out to find the one that suits you. After all, the best food journal for you is the one you will actually use.
Why we're fans: Especially easy for those who like to know what percentage of carbs, proteins and fat they are taking in, such as adherents to the Zone Diet's 40-30-30 approach. Allows you to easily duplicate meals and foods from one day to the next, convenient for people who tend to eat the same meals day-to-day. If you enjoy community support, Lose It! encourages accountability through challenges, forums and more, and can email weekly progress reports, if you like that sort of thing. Logs your workout activities as well. Especially easy to navigate on a smartphone.
My Fitness Pal
Why we're fans: One of My Fitness Pal's strengths is its hefty catalog of foods. The website claims more than 2 million foods, and it shows. Like many other food journals, it boasts the ability to connect to a variety of fitness trackers, such as the Fitbit. That allows you to easily calculate calories burned, steps taken, etc., and how that offsets calories consumed. (Remember, though, to take calories burned with a grain of, um, salt. Many such calculations are based on an average.) If you are manually inputting your exercise, My Fitness Pal has lots to choose from, including Wii games.
Why we're fans: The Livestrong brand has been tarnished a bit by you-know-who. But moving on: My Plate offers an easy-to-use, at-a-glance dashboard, where some of the other applications require a few more clicks to get the same data. It also includes an impressive database of exercises and calories burned, among them: indoor skiing. But the true benefit of My Plate is the Livestrong website. Click around on the site, with its real-time take on nutritional news and array of motivational articles, and you'll find yourself jumping up off the couch and heading out the door for a workout.
