TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: A Scary Shark Story With A Happy Ending

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: A Scary Shark Story With A Happy Ending

It’s that time of year when we start to hear stories of shark attacks up and down the east coast. But every once in a while you get a GOOD shark story.

A fisherman out in California recently spotted a great white shark that was tangled in a bunch of fishing lines. Somehow… very carefully I’m guessing, he managed to reach down from his boat and untangle it all without getting bit.

Everyone in this story deserves an award or some kind of medal. The fisherman, the shark, all parties involved.

MUNDANE MYSTERIES: What do lobsters eat?

MUNDANE MYSTERIES: What do lobsters eat?

We all love to eat delicious lobsters… but what do THEY eat? Themselves!

Yup, that’s right. Lobsters are cannibals.  When they’re hungry and looking for food, they’ll happily eat another lobster without even thinking twice about it. Which I totally get. I mean, have you ever had a warm drawn butter lobster roll here in Connecticut? If I was a lobster I’d probably eat other lobsters too.

Couples Court: John and Maureen’s kids have asked to go to an amusement park this Sunday for Father’s Day. Mom thinks it’s a great idea. He thinks it’s ridiculous that they must spend “his” day doing something that the kids want to do. If it was up to him, they would just grill at home and watch movies. Why do they have to go battle crowds, and go on rides that will make him vomit? She says that he’s acting like a baby, its summertime, school is over, and it’s time to do family things! They can stay home and watch Netflix any time! Whose side are you on? (25:32)

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: How One Woman Got Into An Aquarium With A 40 Year Old Ticket

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: How One Woman Got Into An Aquarium With A 40 Year Old Ticket

This story proves getting a free ticket or gift card that says “good anytime” is more true than ever.

The New England Aquarium up in Boston accepted a ticket from a visitor that was almost four decades old! Back in 1983 a woman tried to to the aquarium one day but they were closing the facility for renovations at the time. So instead they gave her a free pass that said “good for admission at ANYTIME in the future.”  Well… last Thursday, the woman’s great-grand-niece finally decided it was time to cash in on the free pass… 38 years later.

Amazing.

MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Why do golfers yell “FORE!”?

MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Why do golfers yell “FORE!”?

I went on The Anna and Raven Show this morning to teach them about golf terms they should know for the big Star 99.9 Maritime Chevrolet Anna and Raven Open coming up July 16th. (sign up to play here)

They asked me why golfers tell “FORE!” all the time. If you golf you know that it’s a word you yell when your ball is heading towards someone after you hit it. But why the word “fore”? I got to the bottom of it.

“Fore” is another word for “ahead” or “forward”. So you use that term because you are telling to people “ahead” of you to warn them about the incoming ball. The British Golf Museum says the word was first used back in 1881. During that era golfers would use “fore-caddies” to wait for the ball to land and show them where it went. If the ball was about to hit the fore caddie they would yell “FORE!’

So there you go. Now when you play in our golf tournament on July 16th you’ll know why you’re yelling FOOOOOOOORE!.
