Bobby Knight: Testicle Wrencher

Bobby Knight: Testicle Wrencher

As it turns out, legendary Indiana basketball coach Bobby Knight might not have been the altruist he's made out to be. Pretty serious allegations are being made by a former player in a new book. Assaults, humiliation, and yes, testicle grabbing (and squeezing) were all allegedly part of his repertoire. The link has the story from Deadspin.

A7X Live This Thursday on Your Phone!

A7X Live This Thursday on Your Phone!

Yes you can watch Avenged Sevenfold live on October 27th on your phone! The band is playing a once-in-a-lifetime show that will stream live in 360-degree virtual reality! You can get details from the band HERE and even more specifics about the event HERE.

More importantly, it sounds like they will make some announcements on the much-expected new album during the show as well. The new album is rumored to be titled "Voltaic Oceans" and is also rumored to be released on December 9th. There hasn't been an official announcement about any of this, contrary to what you'll read on Wikipedia, but it does seem an awful lot like they'll talk about it at this show.

All we've gotten from the band so far is the new single, and this super cryptic promo website called Death Bot. Hopefully we'll get more details on Thursday night!

Now Loading: Pokemon Go Halloween

Now Loading: Pokemon Go Halloween

​Every Tuesday we have our guy Jeremy Duff from Gamingnexus.com in studio for our video game segment called "Now Playing" brought to you by Mountain Dew Kickstart.

On today's edition of "Now Loading", Jeremy filled us in on the special Halloween theme event Niantic is doing for Pokemon Go. From October 26 to November 1, players will get double candies for catching and transferring Pokemon, as well as get 4x the candies for walking around with your buddy. 

In addition to that, the frequency of ghost and psychic type Pokemon will increase and spawn more regularly. 

With the hype for Pokemon Go dropping from close to 50 million in July, to around 30 million still playing currently, Niantic is hoping that this first of many events will begin to increase the number of players again.

You can catch Jeremy Duff with us every Tuesday morning at 6:30am or check out gamingnexus.com

Woman asking "Where's the chicken?"

Woman asking "Where's the chicken?"

Anna Wurtzburger of Hopewell Junction, NY is suing KFC for false advertising after she purchased a $20 bucket of chicken from the franchise this past summer. She says that KFC says that if will feed a whole family by showing a bucket of overflowing chicken but you get half a bucket and they're small pieces. She says that they should redo their commercials like the movie 'Oliver', showing a little orphan going up to the counter asking, 'Can I have some more?' She's seeking $20 million in damages. KFC is calling the lawsuit, "meritless."​

You aren't ready for this animated short.

You aren't ready for this animated short.

If you thought the first ten minutes of "Up" was brutal, then this award winning short film will most likely ruin you. "Borrowed Time" is a side project from Lou Hamou-Lhadj and Andrew Coats, two Pixar animators who wanted to tell a story of loss and acceptance without any barriers. Many people think animation is exclusively for children or that it has to be comedic in order to be successful, but that is far from true. You can find more information on the short here and watch (with a box of tissues handy... trust me) below.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees have been Announced!

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees have been Announced!

The nominee announcement is both the coolest and least cool part about the Hall of Fame induction. Least Cool: because they list all of these acts and then less than half of them get in. Coolest: because you actually get to vote on these ones!

To answer the inevitable "I like the Foo Fighters better than any of these losers! Why the hell can't I vote for them?!" Well that would be because to be eligible for nomination, an individual artist or band must have released its first single or album at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination. That means the 2017 class had to be present before 1991 and Foo Fighters debuted in 1995, so suck it, douchey college bro who calls Foo Fighters classic rock!

Anyway, the top of the class in my opinion is comprised of (in no particular order) Seattle grunge legends Pearl Jam, Prog Rock pioneers Yes, The sound of every 80s montage since the 1970s Journey and Hip-hop's fallen messiah Tupac Shakur. But those are all just my opinion! Your vote matters too (both now and in November) so go vote on the 2017 Rock Hall class right HERE!

Hey Walking Dead Fans, Norman Reedus Says Sunday Will be Rough...

Hey Walking Dead Fans, Norman Reedus Says Sunday Will be Rough...

Well honestly there's not much more to say than that. Norman Reedus (Daryl on AMC's The Walking Dead) appeared on The Tonight Show this Thursday and dropped what some are calling a Walking Dead Spoiler. Honestly, you won't really get any new information from the video. BUT, we do learn that we will find out who died on the premier next Sunday. Reedus also said the episode will have a lot of people "kicking their television sets." As for any other information, we're as in the dark as we were 7 months ago. However, you can check out some crazy conspiracy theories about who Negan killed in the last episode HERE, HERE and HERE!

You can also check out the clip of Norman Reedus with Jimmy Fallon below.

If you're looking for a way to get ready for the premier, you can come hang out with myself, Loper, Randi and the rest of the Blitz crew at AimHi on Sunday in New Albany! 

As for my opinion on the next episode, well I don't really know anymore than you guys, but I don't think it looks to good for everyone's favorite pizza delivery boy...

The Undertaker Isn't Looking so Good...

The Undertaker  Isn't Looking so Good...

Well if you've been a fan of the WWE (then WWF) since the early 90s, you know The Undertaker. The Big Dog Deadman, who not only popularized an entire type of match, but holds the record for the longest undefeated streak in Wrestlemania history. Yeah, that Undertaker.

Now, 26 years after he began with the WWE and 32 years after he started his professional wrestling career, The 51-year-old Deadman just isn't looking so good. He's been photographed a few times recently using crutches to walk and the pictures have gone completely viral. I'll go ahead and drop a couple below for your convenience and disbelief.

For what it's worth, Taker has not officially announced his retirement, nor has their been any official statement made on his health. The crutches could be for a recent injury, or the photos could be older than everyone thinks, but He was pulled from a number of WWE live events in the spring. This is all very sudden, considering some gym videos popped up a few months ago of Undertaker in terrifyingly excellent shape for a man of his age.

It sounds like more than anything, we're just going to have to wait on words from Taker himself. I know he's been one of my heroes since I was old enough to choke slam my neighbor, so here's hoping he gives a swift tombstone piledriver to whatever's holding him down and gets back in the ring soon!
