Can you remember that last time your emotions ran that high and that low in the same minute as the last 60 sec of the Jets-Philly game last night?
I think the best games the Jets have had all season have been the 4 against Philly, just for the excitement level alone!
In the end, after getting over the devastating tie with 9 seconds left and the overtime loss, we did come away with an important point in the standings, giving us two different avenues into the playoffs. Being tied with Toronto and Florida with 20 games left is huge! At the very least, the Jets have given us some exceptionally entertaining hockey since coming back home this season.
Btw, we’ll have Sportsnet’s Jeff Marek on the show tomorrow morn with all the trade rumours around the league including any potential movement on the Jets of course.
The Bachelor Canada hits Winnipeg for auditions tomorrow at the Fort Garry Hotel from 11am to 8pm. If you’re a single guy, there could be worse places to hang out tomorrow. Grab a beer in the lobby bar and check it out. We’ll have someone from the production on the show in the morn telling us all about the behind the scenes stuff.
Also on tomorrow’s show, we’ll catch up with Jenny Jones at the Scotties tourny in Red Deer as she goes for another Canadian title.
Really sad news about Cal Murphy. He sure was responsible for bringing a lot of exciting Bomber football to us for a lot of years and, most importantly, Grey Cups!!
Graham James gets sentenced today. Hope they find a nice hole to put him into to rot.
The Oscars are Sunday night. Each member of the morning show will pick our winners in the top categories. Guess who gets the most correct and Bubba will have a nice movie/dinner prize pack for you. Check the website for details tomorrow.
Our new addition Nesta is an avid and savy social media user, so check out all her postings and tweets etc on the Citi and morning show twitter accounts and the Citi Facebook page. She posts some really cool stuff every morning!
Ok, hear from you in the morning…

Is your online life keeping you from having a sex life? Instead of getting it on, 72 percent of people spend their time before falling asleep updating or checking their friends’ Facebook status. In fact, 20 percent of people surveyed said they stopped halfway through sex to check when they heard their text message ding!
It’s not just sex either, their sleep is suffering too. The same people reported only 6 hours and 21 minutes sleep per night. Being exposed to bright light from computer and cellphone screens in bed delays your brain and body’s ability to get to sleep. People can’t get to sleep as quickly as they should, so aren’t getting that extra hour and 39 minutes to hit the recommended quota of 8 hours of sleep per night.
What’s your before bed routine? Are you on your phone until the bitter end?

Valentine’s Day! Whether you love it or hate it, it’s a great excuse for a date night and maybe even some wild & crazy loving. This morning, Tom, Joe and I played cougar cupid and tried to make two fantasies come true this Valentine’s by finding our feline some man meat.
Arrayl was chosen, at random, from our amazing pool of wanna be Winnipeg cougars. (Though, she says she’s more of a panther. She hunts for sport.) She’s a body builder and a hot, open minded country gal who’s looking for a man who can keep up with her.
Bachelor #1: Bryce is a carpenter. He likes snowshoeing, snowboarding & soft ball.
Bachelor #2: Richard is a tradesman. He likes golf, ultimate golf, baseball & outdoor sports
Bachelor #3: Jordan works in a body shop. He likes classic cars, video games & beer drinking.
We sequestered our lucky three boy toys, sight unseen, in our board room so Arrayl could ask them the important, telling questions to decide which of the youngsters might make a try on the hunting grounds.
If she’s a cougar, what animal would they like to be and why:
Bachelor #1: An antelope…because he’d be chased and eated by cougars
Bachelor #3: A liger – half lion, half tiger. Unusual but awesome.
If she was Santa and they were a little boy on her lap, what would they ask for?
Bachelor #2: A tamdem bicycle, so they could enjoy it together.
Bachelor #1: Well, I am still a little boy!
Arrayl asked 10 questions. The guys got to ask her one each. Give a listen to the full “Bachelorette: Cougar Edition” here. Then it was up to Arrayl to decide who she was talking to the Jets vs. the New York Islanders for a Valentine’s date….
You guys were all over the place over which Bachelor she should pick. One liked #1 for what kind of car he said best describes him; Norine, on Facebook, said #2 ”is the most sweetest, caring and amazing guy!! He knows how to treat his ladies right!!” Actually, #2 was a big front runner with both Arrayl’s daughter, Sam, and best friend, Laurie, who called to say she HAD to pick him.
In the end, Arrayl went with her gut instinct and chose Bachelor #1, our 24-year-old, 6’6″ carpenter.
Ttomorrow morning, just after 7, we’re going to find out how the Jets date goes. If it went well, she could take Bryce out again, to dinner at Brooklynn’s Bistro, the Deep Purple concert and maybe even spend the night in one of Mariaggi’s Theme Suites! If there just isn’t that spark, well, there’s two other bachelors to choose from.
