Jason and Deb
Glen Powell Kicks Ass
FROM AUSTIN TO EXPENDABLES:
Expendables 3 cast member and Austinite Glen Powell stopped by the studio today to give us some inside scoops about all our favorite action heroes. Glen was able to land the part through a quickly taped audition and was soon flying out of helicopters with his action idol, Sylvester Stallone, in beautiful Bulgaria. There was definitely a “boys club” mentality on set, but the training involved seemed very intense. Glen even had the opportunity to work out with Mr. Stallone and he confirmed that his regimen blows most everyone’s out of the water. Glad to know their work-outs weren't in vein.
PRODUCER NICK’S NEW OBSESSION:
Our producer Nick recently had some beef over who’s the worst character on The League. Nick argues that Pete (played by Mark Duplass, who will be on the show next week) is the least likeable character and, to prove his point, he’s watched every episode of the first season and tallied the offenses character have against each other. He shared his results, and it turns out Ruxin (played by Nick Kroll) is the worst character according to Nick’s very unscientific tally system. Now, which one of us is which League character? That's gonna take some more debate and research.
Deb has some issues with people’s lack of plane etiquette. She recently returned from her trip to Nicaragua, and the plane ride started off great with the expanded legroom she received. Deb felt a little strange, though, not communicating with the awkward-looking, longhaired teenager in her row. Deb was amazed at the constant tousling of the boy’s hair post-plane ride and disgusted at the hair remnants that were falling upon her. Sounds like a real hairy situation.
Wednesdays we shine a light on That Guy – the guy (or girl) who does something douchey and either doesn’t realize it or doesn’t apologize for it. Today we targeted the “says he’s going to do something then doesn’t do it” guy. Whether you want to call them flakes or just douches, we had some real beef with those that don’t follow through. Jason didn’t want names to be dropped but Deb just had to call them out. It’s mainly just reliability issues with Jason’s softball team, but his fuming is something we can all get behind.
PET OF THE WEEK:
We're all about supporting animal charities and bringing you the happiness of animals in your own home. So you should check out our friends at Love-A-Bull, who are currently looking for a home for Kit. She's low-key, but she'll perk up to play some softball, Give Kit and the other adopt-a-bulls a look here.
I LOVE YOU CALL:
At 8:50 Deb calls a random business and tries to get the person answering the phone to say, “I love you.” Today Deb phoned in to Ridley’s Family Market in Utah to see about getting some groceries for her RV. The market is fully stocked with all that Deb’s imaginary family needed, save the organic produce that is oh-so-important. We were kind of shocked that they served beer there, but even Deb’s “God bless” couldn’t get her some love.
DOES DEB KNOW STUFF:
Every day we “trivialize” Deb by asking her quiz questions, then laughing when she doesn’t know the answers. Today Deb had to pull her knowledge on action stars in the Expendables 3 and their other roles. Deb swung a lucky guess with Stallone’s character but was bested by Terry Crew’s breakout role as President Camacho in Idiocracy. Sorry Deb but sounds like you need some more action.
More details have surfaced about the recent passing of Robin Williams. The incident has been confirmed as a suicide, but this has just brought about steam from conservative news sources. Rush Limbaugh and Shepard Smith both criticized the actor for being “cowardly” and blaming the liberal agenda. Classy.
Police in Massachusetts pulled over a Maserati that was colored and patterned to look like a police car, except instead of “protect and serve” the driver had a Decepticons logo across the car. The man was charged with impersonating a police officer, but the car was impounded after undergoing such an awesome transformation.
Our Dallas Cowboys are in a joint training camp with the Oakland Raiders in Oxford, California. A bitter rivalry developed involving the local gangs adopting the jerseys of the opposing teams. A brawl erupted with a local Oakland fan and the Dallas quarterback, eventually including the whole team.
Donald Sterling will hopefully stop making headlines now. Sterling is officially out of his ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers; the team now plays under the ownership of Steve Ballmer. Sterling says he’ll continue to fight the NBA, but their decision is final.
