For this episode of our "Weekend Wrap-Up!" podcast I get to explain to Stu Gotz why my BFF is the best Valentine’s Day gift-giver ever! Stu also had a nice day, although his day involved an escapade in getting some tea and an urge to beat down an older lady. Calmness did prevail, and maybe that’s because both Stu and I, well, Stu more than I, are getting into the Winter Olympics. He got into the competition right at the get-go, while I’m waiting for the curling competition to begin because nothing screams "winter" like brooms and a big stone. Both of us, though, did catch some and most of the opening ceremonies and give our related critiques.

As the podcast continues, the Winter Olympics will be putting a damper in both of our TV viewing schedule, my BFF and I saw "Avatar" over the weekend, and she liked it, and Stu wondered if the BFF and I went to church on Sunday at Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago in time to take part in the protest of the gay coalition against the Catholic church. I tell Stu of the death of Doug Fieder from The Knack, Stu will be giving a diving presentation at Our World Underwater this weekend, I sing badly, neither of really want to see "Shutter Island," Stu gives his religious views (send your complaints to stugotz@entertainmentavenue.com or comment below), and I won’t be getting Jimmy Buffett tickets. So much to talk about… So little time!

Free Grand Slams at Denny’s, The Super Bowl is Done, and What is Burn Notice?

The Super Bowl may be over, but during our “Weekend Wrap-Up!” podcast, the memories live on! Yup, Stu Gotz and I talk about the game, the commercials, the success of The Puppy Bowl, the free Grand Slam breakfast at Denny’s, and the resignation of Scott Lee Cohen, the dude elected to run for Lieutenant Governor in Illinois, but because the Democrats didn’t like him, they made him cry, and quit, during halftime of the Super Bowl. Gotta love politics in Illinois!

And along with the big game, we also talk more TV and find out that Stu would have been a great contestant on Saturday Night Live’s game show of “What is Burn Notice?” because, well, he knows what “Burn Notice” is, and that my DVR is filled with Oprah and Ellen.  My BFF and I searched out some wedding reception options, a snow storm might cause a lot of school closings in Chicago, my BFF is now the only person who hasn’t seen “Avatar,” and watch out for that salami, especially if you bought it from Costco, because there is some kind of recall. And if you think salami might be stinky, don’t go pee at Chicago’s City Hall.

Stu Gotz is back in town, and for this “Weekend Wrap-Up!” podcast we both give our tales of domestic exercising that neither of us really planned for. But our being out of shape doesn’t curtail this podcast, nope, it’s the day after the Grammy Awards, or as Stu calls them the “Granny Awards,” and even though he didn’t watch them, I did, and we both have opinions about various folks like Lady Gaga, The Black Eyed Peas, and Fergi.

Some vacation talk with Stu leads to his recommendations of sit-down dinner v. buffet on a Royal Caribbean cruise, I lament some website redesign on my inability to get stuff posted, Stu is happy that “Burn Notice” and “Psych” are back on TV, and we both love “Chuck.” Combine that with some talk of “Star Trek” and “Avatar,” humping dolphins, and hey, why not some iPad and Jay Leno talk thrown in for goodness measures, and you get another fun-filled episode of “Stu & The Dude’s Weekend Wrap-Up!” podcast!
