WSGW Morning Team Show: November 14, 2017

Welcome to a Tuesday with Charlie and Dave and YOU on the WSGW Morning Team Show…


(Charlie Rood) A quick personal note…   if you see me in the near future with any bruises, noticeable limp, or wearing a neck brace, it’s okay.   My son, Charlie, has decided to try wrestling, and of course he needs to practice.   I just hope he doesn’t half-nelson me into a full body cast!


This is the WSGW Food For Families update!   We ask you, our Loyal Family of Radio Listeners, to listen for updates (and posted here on the WSGW Morning Team page) on where you can go to make non-perishable food donations to help those in need.  All donations are collected by the Salvation Army for distribution.   In return for your donation, you receive a copy of the all-new Listen to the Mrs. Recipe Brochure.   Here is the Food for Families location for today, a return visit to:

(Charlie Rood)  Here’s my take on my amusement about NFL owners standing up to fellow owner Jerry Jones in his opposition to contract negotiations with Commissioner Roger Goodell.   Yet, when it comes to their employees, the players, the owners can’t seem to find their collective voice to say “stand up” for the Star Spangled Banner (runs 3:22)!


(Charlie Rood)  I have comments on the senate race in Alabama with Roy Moore as the allegations of sexual misconduct continue.   Aside from the very serious nature of this, I did find one thing Moore said I have to agree with.   It’s something I’ve been saying for months.   AND, another GOP senator thinks Moore is unfit to serve according to the standards of the senate, which I think might mean many seats would have to be emptied (runs 5:12)


Here’s the update we referenced after the 8:30 news from GasBuddy.Com and its Head of Petroleum Analysis, Patrick DeHaan.

According to GasBuddy historical data, gasoline prices on November 13 in Michigan have ranged widely over the last five years:

  • $2.04/g in 2016
  • $2.23/g in 2015
  • $2.94/g in 2014
  • $3.21/g in 2013
  • $3.55/g in 2012

“If you use gas prices to figure out the time of year it is, you’d probably think it’s spring based on the continued upward trend showing up in much of the country,” said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “Absent is the beloved fall at the pump that we’re used to that accompanies the fall weather, but apparently this year is playing a trick on motorists. The cheapest price this year was in July while the most expensive showed up after the driving season concluded as Harvey hit, and we may get closer to that mark as gasoline inventories continue to drift to new multi-year lows. It’s been a lousy time for motorists, and I’d expect to see some cut their spending during the holidays as gas prices are up.”


Everyone has left things behind, right?   How about at your polling place?   Maybe you left behind your your smartphone or car keys.   How about what was left behind at this polling place…ELECTION DAY

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) – A city clerk in Maine is looking for the owner of a set
of dentures left behind in a polling booth. The Portland Press Herald reports
the false teeth were discovered during last week’s election. An election clerk
found the teeth in an auditorium that serves as a polling place in Portland. The
dentures are now in a plastic bag in the city clerk’s office in Portland City
Hall, just a few steps away from the polling place.

Dave Maurer thinks the voter was gritting their teeth so hard over the choices they started to hurt so they took ’em out and forget ’em!


Wake Up Song of the Day:   Stephen Bishop “It Might Be You” (the theme from Tootsie).   He’s 66.
