Cops Arrest a Pizza Delivery Guy . . . Then Deliver the Pizza

By |2020-12-15T06:35:31-06:00December 15th, 2020|Categories: Blogs|

This might be the first Little Caesars pizza to get a police escort. On Friday, the police in Murrieta, California pulled over a Little Caesars pizza delivery driver for a traffic violation.  And when the cops ran his name, they found he had an outstanding warrant, so they arrested him. But there was still an undelivered pizza in his car. So the cops came up with a plan:  One of them took the driver to jail . . . while the other one delivered the pizza to the customer who was waiting for it.   WHEW! This story could have ended [...]

I guess a lot of us haven't matured much when it comes to pizza toppings. Because a new study found we're still ordering like eight-year-olds. Someone got their hands on a bunch of data from Yelp, and posted the most common type of pizza we order in all 50 states. And the winner is . . . plain old CHEESE. Cheese pizza ranked first in 29 states. And it's especially popular on the East Coast. Here are some more stats on our favorite pizza orders . . . Chicken is WAY more popular as a topping than it used to be. [...]

VROOM, VROOM!!! The most famous race in America was Sunday, the Daytona 500 and you probably missed it. Growing up I loved watching NASCAR on Sundays with my dad, it was something to have in the background and we could cheer on our favorite drivers. More recently it seems I may have grown out of my love for NASCAR, but why? Racing is fun! One of my favorite weekends last summer include me and a few guys from the radio stations driving up to Arlington for Saturday night races. So why is NASCAR boring to me? I caught some of the [...]

For Minnesotans after this long winter filled with snow, the idea of the sun and seasonal warmth sounds incredibly rejuvenating!

Now the fun part, baseball comes home to Minnesota, Target Field in 43 days. FORTY-THREE DAYS! As we shovel out [...]

New Sport

By |2019-02-11T10:09:42-06:00February 11th, 2019|Categories: Blogs|Tags: , , , , , |

The sports world is vast, with so many different people with different likes and skills making each sport unique. Competitions created to train and prove the capability to be part of a certain group, some developed sports can link back to early rituals and warfare turned entertainment. Lots of words basically saying, some sports are created out of necessity and then turned to entertainment. Which brings me to a new sport, soon to be an Olympic activity for Minnesotans to excel at... SNOW SHOVELING! Each match would consist of two-member teams using shovels to clear a determined length+width of a driveway with a [...]
