2 Warm Fronts Collide for a Marriage Proposal on The Weather Channel

Weather Channel meteorologist Kim Perez was shocked when her boyfriend then, fiance' now Marty proposed to her live on the air Sunday night.

it was kind of preplanned as some music started playing and a background with the words "Will You Marry Me?" appeared. 

Here's the Youtube video of the proposal : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7Owgwqb3l8

It was a little corny, but a nice proposal as she was giving us the forceast for New Year's.

I guess a wedding is in the forecast.

2 Bowl Picks Today: EagleBank and Champ Sports

2 bowl games on Tuesday.

The EagleBank pits Temple, who hasn't sniffed a bowl game in 30 years against UCLA.  I always have problems figuring out UCLA, but I'll go with them even though it's going to be cold, and they had to travel across the country.

Wisconsin and Miami vie for the Champs Sports Bowl title.  Both are ranked and this should be a good game.   The game is played in Orlando, so I like Miami, even though Wisconsin poses some problems for the "Canes.  Miami by 7.

 

Bowl record so far:  7-4   I'm on a roll now.

Kindle Free Pick of the Week: Sherlock Holmes

 

The new Sherlock Holmes movie is out starring Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law and Rachel McAdams.  What a perfect time to make Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes the Kindle free pick of the week. 

Reviews are good for this classic in Kindle form.  I haven't read it yet, but I look forward to it.

Not only is it FREE, but these stories completely hold up over time. Wonderfully sectionalized in tasty bite size short stories, the adventures of sherlock holmes is awesome. Cocaine injecting, boxing, female-agnostic to remain as logical as possible - these stories are enthralling and fun!  - one reviewer

Get it and enjoy this classic to go along with the movie.

Must See TV: Worst Cooks in America on Food Network

I was granted a little preview of a new show that will be airing on Food Network. Sunday January 3, 2010 at 10pm Eastern. 

Worst Cooks in America is a great concept.  We all know there are far too many reality shows on TV, but this one is different.   Anne Burrell, host of Secrets of a Restaurant Chef, and Beau MacMillan, executive chef at elements in Phoenix, try to help 12 hopeless cooks through a boot camp designed to make them fail.

It's $25,000 to the winner, so no one is going to get rich, but they will get some television exposure and maybe will showcase their talents enough to get a better gig.

The contestants are not trained in the culinary arts at all, they include a student, a lawyer, and a journalist.  The only thing missing from this series would be Gordon Ramsey telling while they try to make risotto.  Looks like Food Network has another possible hit show on their hands.  Looking forward to this series.

Monday's Bowl Game Pick: Independence Bowl

Shreveport, LA is the site for tonight's bowl. The Independence Bowl pits Texas A&M vs. Georgia. Texas A&M's passing attack came alive late in the season, and Georgia has already fired their Defensive Coordinator. What does all this mean? Who knows, but let's go with Georgia. They want to end up the year strongly, and I think they have more talent overall than A&M.

 

Bowl record so far: 6-4
