6:00 What were you doing 20 years ago?
Happy Monday from Ben, Dana and Giselle! It is still 2017 (although it’s been a weird year already) and some of your favorite songs are turning 20. Hanson’s Mmm Bop and Aqua’s Barbie Girl are yup, you guessed 20 years old.
6:15 Bandwagon Fan
The results are in and the Packers are officially out of Super Bowl LI and Ben couldn’t be more excited they lost!! It will be a battle between the Patriots and Falcons. As a recent bandwagon Packer fan, Dana was pretty disappointed but is he’s now a Patriots fan, so he’s got that going for him.
6:30 Kid Movie Deaths that Destroyed You
Why do people always die horrible deaths in kids movies? Bambi obviously tops the list with Bambi’s mom being shot dead by the evil hunters. Ben still gets choked up over Thomas (Macaulay Culkin) from My Girl, who knew that the damn bees and a little boy needing glasses could be so outright depressing? Giselle is still shook up by The Lion King‘s death and Dana just can’t handle Rufio’s death in the movie Hook. Can you guess the one death none of us will ever recover from though?
6:50 The Trend
Women’s marches took place all over the nation over the weekend, with 100,000 people showing up at the state’s capital. The NFL wrapped up the national championships yesterday with the Patriots and Falcons headed to the Super Bowl. Split topped the weekend box office with one of the largest January debuts in history.
7:15 This Only Happens to Intern Anna
Intern Anna always has some story and when Ben, Dana and Giselle woke up to a text from her on Sunday morning about one of many Uber rides she’s taken, this however didn’t end the way she planned. Notorious for falling asleep (aka passing out) in the back of Uber’s, she was just catching a few Zzz’s when she woke up and the sheriff was shining lights into the car. It was a little bit of a messy situation, but everyone made it a-ok.
7:30 $1000 Minute
Caleb was so close to $1000 Minute this morning, if he had only answered one more question right he would have swooped in the $1000. Play with B, D and G every day at 7:30am.
8:15 Get To Know
Over the weekend, the Red Hot Chili Peppers stopped by Minneapolis to show some love. Every rock star has to have something they want in their rider. Ben will only accept Minneapolis tap water at 57 degrees. Dana is requesting just a couple of small (not so small and very demanding) items like 100 buffalo chicken wings served on Lincoln’s dinnerware from The White House, and the actual Mona Lisa. Everyone seems to want baby animals and G wants to make it rain with a fat stack of dollar dollar bills, y’all.
8:30 This might be why you’re single af.
Three out of the four people in studio are single af, so we are really trying to figure out why everyone is having trouble attracting a mate (but most importantly Ben). Procrastination is a thing, and digging out all those skeletons from the closet is just where to start. Forgetting to text back or respond to all of those Tinder convos might be contributing to those missed connections. Most importantly though, love yourself and stop that self-hate, no one sees your flaws.
