It's time for another Bro Council interview. This time, we talk with Les Stroud of TV's Survivorman. We find out about Les' music, his new projects coming out, his knife line, and more. Is he really doing a show about Bigfoot? And what would Survivorman do in a zombie apocalypse? And we ask him the big question: who would win in a fight, Les or Bear Grylls? Check out the interview below!
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
Ahhh...1998. I was 17, our very own Pat was in his late 40's, and Baz Luhrmann put out a song that I liked because of the beat. And every year that I get older, it makes more sense. The song came from an article called "Advice, like youth, probably just wasted on the young" written by Mary Schmich in the Chicago Tribune as a column in 1997. She described the article as a commencement speech she would give if she were asked to give one. Australian film director Baz Luhrmann used the lyrics on an album of his in 1998. Baz has directed Moulin Rouge and The Great Gatsby among others. The speech was narrated by an Australian voice actor... Read More
In our continuing series, our own Marv Nelson takes a look at what it takes to be a father. This is a great series to check out if you're a dad, or thinking of being one. Just remember: these are stories about parenting and the unpredictable nature of children, so some of them can be pretty off the wall. #DaddyLife In the life of a child, the presence of their parents (especially the father) is the most important basic need they innately have. As a Daddy, I've seen the powerful effect that my presence plays in their lives. When I go away for a week, the first few days they have a really hard time with the change and... Read More
