NCAA Bracket Invitations=Panic Attack

I don't how it happened, but "March Madness" snuck up on me this year. This week, I received at least three email invitations and one Facebook message to get in on an NCAA pool.

Chad’s Ky State Fair Photo Gallery!

Last Thursday, I continued one of my favorite annual WBKR traditions!  I headed up to Louisville to broadcast live, all day, from opening day at the Kentucky State Fair!  This year, I was able to do things I have never done at the fair before and it was all caught on camera!   YES!!  I got to feed a rabbit chocolate Chex Mix, steal a sash from a beauty queen and learn how to milk a goat named Peace!  It was a fun-filled day and I loved every minute of it!  (Well, except for that scary moment when I almost submerged my right flip-flop into a big, steamy cow patty!)  Check out my photos!  (But don't worry!  I'll leave out the big, steamy cow patty!)
