Ladies and gentlemen, on this Throwback Friday we bring you the best weather report ever. If you haven't seen it, check it out immediately and then read the rest of the article. If you have seen it, then we are here to help you figure out why this report happened. The report was created by a guy named Aaron Justus who used to work for a station in Richmond, Virginia with the call sign WTVR-CBS 6. He was getting ready to leave the station and decided to put together the fake forecast as a farewell sendoff. He explained some more about the background story on his blog: This video was never on air. It was part of an ongoing joke... Read More
You have to love local commercials...cheap, low production quality, and bad acting. In this week's retro video a guy named Sammy Stephens raps and dances for a "Flea Market Montgomery" ad. The Background Sammy was an on-air personality for Montgomery, Alabama's WMGY radio station and was asked to help create a commercial for a local flea market. The video was recorded in 2006, and featured Sammy singing and dancing about the flea market. The concept was pretty simple, but the combination of his rhythm and crazy eyes made this video a viral sensation. What Happened Next? Just remember a couple things before you get all 'uppity'...

Randall Cunningham was the first true dual-threat superstar in the NFL. And there have been other QB's who are as dangerous with their feet as with their arms, but in our opinion no one has topped Cunningham with his blend of speed, accuracy, and football smarts. The Background We had many highlights to pick from when we decided to make Cunningham the focus of Throwback Friday, but none encapsulates the QB as well as this pass to Fred Barnett during a 1990 game against the Buffalo Bills. In the play, Cunningham was throwing from his end zone and was about to be sacked by one of the most feared defensive ends ever, Bruce... Read More

Brian Collins was covering the March 22, 2005 game between the Indiana Pacers and the New Jersey Nets - and it was a horrible performance. Millions of people have seen this video, but not everyone knows the story behind it, so here it is. Collins agreed to be on Ball State University's college newscast because the regular sportscaster was ill. The teleprompter worked, but a new prompter-operator accidentally fast-forwarded through the script. Collins improvised (admittedly, very badly) and uttered the now immortal phrase "boom goes the dynamite." It wasn't all bad for Collins, he landed a job on TV as a reporter, appeared on... Read More

We love the mid-west! Where else could you get a witness to a robbery that sounds like this? Diana Radcliff walked into a convenience store in Kansas City, Missouri on September 1, 2010 and she witnessed a failed robbery attempt. Radcliff fell to the floor as her friends/amigos behind the counter started shooting at the criminals as they ran out of the building. Luckily, everyone was safe and she was able to give this amazing interview about the incident to a reporter for KMBC-TV. Here's how she described the incident: I was putting one more tap of coffee in my coffee cup and out of the corner of my eyes, I saw two guys come in,... Read More
Today's throwback video of the week is "Lazy Sunday." If you didn't know, it's a song that was the resurgence for Saturday Night Live. Back in 2005 SNL was struggling. They were trying to find their identity, and had tried a "Digital Short" once. Digital Short's are sketches that are recorded in advance, instead of the typical live performances you see on SNL. Chris Parnell and Andy Samberg got together with a couple of the SNL writers that Samberg grew up with and knocked out Lazy Sunday in one day. The two eat cupcakes from the Magnolia Bakery, buy snacks at a convenience store, and more on their way to see The Chronicles of Narnia.... Read More
Hello, I'm an 18 year old guy who found out a week before my birthday that my 16 year old teenage girlfriend is pregnant. First off, is it illegal to continue having sex with her in Missouri? In addition to an already scary time for myself, her parents are legitimately crazy. They will say one thing yet do another, lie to me and her about ridiculous things, I know my girlfriend wants an abortion and doesn't want to keep the baby, but since she is a minor her parents aren't allowing abortion or any other option then to keep it. I care about her, but I don't want to be stuck with child support, should I just try to keep the relationship... Read More
