Check out Donovan give the scoop on The Kilt’s name change.

Today we had Donovan from The Kilt, as both the restaurants in Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo are now called, to talk about the issues surrounding the restaurant name.  It turns out there is a national chain restaurant called the Tilted Kilt that is trying to sue The Kilt for infringement. Rather than invest a half million dollars into the legal battle that was to come, he decided to take a positive spin on the issue and rename his establishments.   He put up a bounty of a 10 person St. Patrick’s Day party with unlimited food and drink for the person who comes up with the best name and slogan.  Jeremy’s idea of “The Lucky Leprechaun” sure as hell won’t win, but what do you think?

Jeff and Jeremy talk to a couple callers about the possibilities surrounding Farmers Field

Plans have been in the works for a while now to build up a new NFL stadium in the City of Industry next to the Staples Center.  These plans have become a lot more real now that they have some financing behind them.  Farmer’s Insurance has purchased the naming rights to the stadium for $700 million dollars, meaning the stadium will be called, and this is for 30 years, Farmer’s Field.  Now I just don’t know about this.  Farmers Field? In LA? These people have been called a lot of things over the years, but “farmer” has never come up on the list in the 2nd most urban area in America.  Besides the name, there’s the whole other issue of the viability of a football team in LA. What do you think?

Here’s the proposed Farmers Field in the complex next to the Staples Center.

Jeff, Jeremy, and Brett the Intern look over the facts to see if Punxsutawney Phil could have any weather predicting powers.

It’s February 2nd again, meaning Punxsutawney Phil has the national spotlight to make his annual weather prediction.  He didn’t see his shadow this morning, meaning spring’s comin’ early this year! Now I’m sure all the people on the east coast are stoked, but really, what the hell? Is there any way this little woodchuck creature could know more about meteorology than Al Rowker? We had Brett the Intern look up some facts to see Phil’s track record and the results were not impressive.  Since the National Climatic Data Center started keeping stats about 30 years ago, he’s been correct only about 39% of the time.  However, for all you believers, there is some good news.  There are 14 famous groundhogs (and I use the term famous very lightly) across the country and 10 of them predicted an early spring, including the second most famous “Staten Island Chuck.” This guy might take the crown from Phil because of his 80% success rate. Check out our poll at kzoz.com to let us know what you think of Punxatawney Phil.
