Storm Damage, Court opens and The Brad Beard

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Good Morning…and let me first say…I never thought he’d do it.

Brad Ehrlich took Jeriann’s challenge and came back with a neatly trimmed goatee for work.

If you missed it, Brad was in the radio studios all last week. He was bragging about not needing to get ready for TV all week(he didn’t shave). Jeriann told him she didn’t think he could grow a beard…

In the loosest definition…this is a beard. Someone already wrote in an email to let us know:

“I think that Brad Ehrlich looks like Pierce Brosnan with his beard. You should do a split screen and compare the two.”
Well, I can’t agree, but I thought he did look like Brad Hook.

To the news:
Storm Damage
The storms that came through Central Iowa last night might not have seemed like much to us here in the metro, but east of here and to the south there were tornado warnings all night. Chopper 13 went looking for the damage before the sun came up. We were reminded of how dark it is between 5-7 now. Summer is defiantly over. As of seven we started to see some of the good pictures coming back from Chopper and we’ll have more for you on the Noon News.

Supreme Court
Executions, Voting, owning a gun in Washington DC and detainees at Guantanamo Bay will all be subject the Supreme Court takes up as it starts a new session today. I’m sure there’s no mistake in the timing of a long interview given by Justice Clarence Thomas on 60 minutes and in other news outlets like USA Today. I’ve linked in those stories so you can read a little more about Justice Thomas. I read the 60 minutes interview this morning and I have to say I learned a lot about Thomas. I thought he was candid about his comments and if the intent of the interview was to get us to read his new book, I think it worked.
President’s Cup
If you missed it going into the weekend, The President’s Cup had one great highlight. Woody Austin tried to hit his ball out of a lake on the par 4 14th hole. He slipped and fell into the lake. Funny stuff but the NBC guys were merciless about it and played it over and over.

Phil Mickelson dubbed Austin “Aquaman” and it looks like the name stuck.

The players wives even got together and made Woody wear this mask on Sunday as he played the 14th…funny stuff.

Zach Johnson played and contributed a solid performance for the US team. The US won the matches.

So you can guess where I was over the weekend…couch…golf football etc.
Sally and I are still getting over our colds so we kind of laid low.
I did get a chance to see our old Assistant News Director. She was in town for the weekend which also happened to be Erin Keirnan’s birthday. Erin has some people over to her house so I went to say hi. You should have seen the looks on people’s faces when I walked in. We don’t get out much on the morning shift. Anyway Erin and Michael have a lovely home and it was a great place to see some old friends.

Hope you all have a great beginning of the week.

    I was wondering the same thing!I don’t know about the whole james bond thing, but he reminds me of a moviestar. I just can’t think of which one.BTW, the new chemistry with Brooke back is fantastic. GO BROOKE! You guys seem to have a lot more fun with her back at the desk. I get the same great information in the morning, but I smile and laugh a TON more!Thank you soooooooo much!Megan R.

    Didn’t Brad say in his comments awhile back that he was going to start blogging? What ever happened with that?

    Jerriann and Brad are NOT a couple. Jerriann is engaged to a man named Rob who reads the blog. (per Patricks blog last week) I’m not sure when they’re getting married, but I think I also read that they’re expecting a child.

    I agree about the peach fuzz thing… but at least he had the guts to take a challenge and go on TV with that pre-pubesent fur on his face. Lots of guts and little hair.

    WHO CARES????????????????? Why must you ALL obsess over the poor guy????????????? If he wants to grow a goatee, let him. If he wants to shave it, let him!

    When I turned on the news this morning and saw Brad’s “new look” I just knew that when I got online there would be a million comments on the blog! How funny :)Eileen

    When I saw the blog this morning, I couldn’t believe all of the comments UNTIL I saw the picture. Oh gosh…shave it!

    So did we ever find out why Brad wasn’t on TV in the first place last week? I get where the goatee comes in, but am confused why there was only his voice and a picture of him doing traffic

    WOW some people are just dumb. Don’t leave comments on the blog if you can’t respect others. Jeriann is not gaining weight. You gise are pathetic if you have to post them as anonymous and not stand up for your opinions. WOW!!! Anyways!! What is with everyone’s obsession with Brad? I feel sorry for the poor guy, no wonder he doesn’t blog. Good job today Pat and Brooke. You gise are awesome!!! I honestly didnt think anyone could even come close to Trish and Pat, but I was wrong!!! Keep up the great work.Heather

    Brad was at the radio station last week covering for someone that was on vacation. That’s why we only had his voice. I’m liking the goatee, Brad. Keep it around for winter.

    JERIANNE (AND ROB PLEASE TAKE THIS AS A COMPLIMENT) IS SMOKING HOT!!! HER PERSONALITY IS TO DIE FOR. I WOULD JUST GOBBLE HER UP IF I WEREN’T (UNBELIEVEABLY HAPPILY)MARRIED WITH TWO ADORABLE CHILDREN.ROB, YOU ARE THE SECOND LUCKIEST GUY IN THE WORLD! (NEXT TO ME!)

    Since we’ve seen Brad in a goatee, you should try to make one when you are on your next vacation Patrick. Anybody good with photoshop out there. I bet somebody could put one on you if you cannot grow one.Just a thought.Donna

    Jeriann is great! I feel bad that some people need to say derogatory things about her appearance. She’s the perfect package….attractive, funny, smart and successful. Back off you haters and look in the mirror. Maybe there’s a problem with your own reflection……

    I think the blog has been pretty civil today, save those silly people who are jealous of Jerianne.I say keep the goatee till spring Brad.Paula :)

    Mabe it’s just days I go out and mow the lawn…what a bunch you guys are! I knew what I was getting into when I put the post up about Brad. We had a good time with the Goatee today. thanks for the reponses. Vern, if you want to comment…go ahead, but if you make a stupid comment that has no place here…we’ll delete it. No one’s afraid of criticisim, and we’re all here to have some fun, maybe have a good discussion; but it’s got to be appropriate for the forum. So when you can follow directions, we’ll stop deleting the posts. Have a good one.PWD
