How About a Trip to Niagara Falls (for Grand Ole Opry Tickets)? [VIDEO]

So, I'm digging this method of giving away Grand Ole Opry tickets. Except, today I was kind of at a loss. The rain and the umpteen-bazillionth winter weather advisory kind of put a damper on doing a video. So I found one.

Would You Ride Sommerrodelbahn: Austria’s Crazy Alpine Coaster? [Video]

I love roller coasters.  The Voyage at Holiday World.  The Beast at King's Island.  Desperado in Primm, Nevada.  And I would be all over this!  Have you seen the Sommerrodelbahn?  It's an alpine coaster in Mieders, Austria that has absolutely NO brakes.  It begins at the top of a mountain and doesn't end until it reaches the bottom . . . nearly 4 minutes after the ride begins.   Look at this thing!

Chad Forces His Cruise Friend Leisa to Eat Raw Meat [Photos]

Here's one thing you likely know about me or at least need to know if you didn't already.  I love adventure.  Of all kinds.  I love to travel, try crazy things (some death-defying) and sample all sorts of wacky, potentially stomach-churning foods.  And, here's another thing you need to know.  If you travel with me, the odds are in your favor that you're gonna be trying a whole bunch of wacky stuff too.  Just ask my friend Leisa, who just went with me on an 8-night cruise in the Southern Caribbean.  Every night at dinner, I found the most bizarre item on the menu and tried it.  Then, I made Leisa try it too.  And thank goodness I had my camera along for the ride because THIS is what happened when Leisa met carpaccio.

Meet WBKR’s Ugly Christmas Sweater T-Shirt Grand Prize Winners [Video]

This year's O Christmas Tees were the best ever thanks to Terry's Tees of Owensboro.  We loved the "ugly Christmas sweater" inspiration and hundreds of folks stormed retail stores on Thanksgiving and Black Friday decked out in WBKR holiday attire.  Three of them were surprised with Gaylord Opryland vacation packages and the cameras were rolling to capture each exciting minute.  This is the one time of the year when I feel like Ed McMahon driving around in the Publisher's Clearing House Sweepstakes van.  LOL!  It's so much fun and I love giving folks really good news!  Wanna see the winners?
