NET PROFIT… THIS WEEK… I GAVE AWAY A NEW CAR… well… it was the Tri-State Chevy Dealer’s Association’s car… and it was during half-time at a Fairfield University Basketball Game… and it wasn’t a sure thing… read more… below…

BRIAN SMITH is the same Brian Smith of  SMITH AND BARBER, THE MORNING SHOW on WPLR….his solo afternoon talk show on WICC 600AM..and as host and announcer for the Fairfield University Stags basketball games at Harbor Yard… and formerly for the Bridgeport Bluefish …  and as an anchorman at FM NEWS NEW YORK in New York City… you can email him at:

THE VOICE had to make a quick trip to Las Vegas this week… he didn’t have time to explain… but while he was away, he had his maintenance staff at The Prognosticator Bar and Grille clean the indoor pool in the NFL room… to get ready for next week’s Superbowl Splash Party… if you haven’t gotten tickets to it yet, I believe it is sold out… and remember, even if talking among family members, or thinking about the Superbowl in your own head, you must refer to it as “The Big Game”, unless you pay the upfront fee to the NFL first…  but… here is a freebie for you… THE VOICE.. his insights and predictions leading up to next week’s Superbowl…  go to “SPORTS PICKS” or just click (here)…

A NEW CAR… RIDING ON A ROUGH PATCH OF CONTROVERSY… as  you may know I am currently the promotional emcee and announcer for the Fairfield University Stag’s basketball games at Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport… and during the time-outs we give away t-shirts and the occasional iPad… but this past Monday night, at half time… John Queenan, of Trumbull (Connecticut), hit a half-court shot to win a brand new, 2013 CHEVY CRUZE…  but…then… there was a bit of conversation amongst those who involve themselves with the legality specifics… that perhaps… Mr. Queenan stepped too far onto the half-court line… and… maybe he wouldn’t get the car… cooler public relations heads prevailed… and without further name-calling and possible fisticuffs… he was awarded the car…

check out the video below… and read more on the story from the Connecticut Post, click (here)…

…I’ve given away a few cars in my career… one in a contest where we hid a new car in an airport parking lot… and another when we gave a car to the last person remaining inside… while it was parked inside a shopping mall… but this… was immediate… and skillful (or skillfully lucky)…  congratulations to John Queenan… and congratulations to the people involved with making the decision to give him the car…

THE NEXT HOME GAME FOR FAIRFIELD UNIVERSITY IS FRIDAY NIGHT AT 7pm… at Webster Bank Arena…

LIP READING SPECIAL… and if you are a baseball fan… you are going to like this… (BUT NOT FOR THE KIDS…):

“ARE YOU ****ING BLIND???”… a lip-reader tells us what the managers and umpires said during some of the more… demonstrative… arguments last year…   from DEADSPIN…. click (here)….

… and… thanks for listening… -Brian
