During an interview this Fall, it was revealed that the hit song “Royals” by New Zealand born singer Lorde wasn’t inspired by a royal family but rather a picture of a baseball player signing autographs in a jersey that said “Royals” across the front in cursive. That player? None other than the greatest story teller Major League Baseball has ever seen, George Brett.
Originally, during an interview with Rolling Stone, Lorde said that her hit song was her take on the royal families, like we all thought. She explained that she had always been “fascinated with aristocracy” and she was really interested in the “Ivy Leagues, the final clubs, all the really old-money families” and the concept itself of “old money”.

Thunder Treats Podcast Episode 045: Archie Griffin, OSU vs. Michigan, NFL, Animal Planet & Daddy Probz
Welcome to episode 045 of the Thunder Treats Podcast! We are still rolling strong! Last week we thanked you for listening after our numbers soared to 3,000 listeners for episode 043. Well, we thought that was a fluke. Who wouldn’t, right? As it turns out, it was only the beginning as numbers for episode 044 soared over 5,000. I can only hope that the numbers keep increasing and we eventually get approached to do our own XM Satellite show daily in our pajamas.
The American Dream.
It’s that time of the year, guys. For those of you coming home from college, you’re going to see everyone you have tried so very hard to ignore since high school. If you are a freshman coming home, I’m sorry in advance. Get ready to get awkward. If you are a sophomore-senior in college, then you know what to expect and how to avoid it. However, sometimes no matter how hard you try, you get sucked in by the majority and have no choice.
For those of you who will be braving the annoying people you went to high school with, we have put together a Night Before Thanksgiving Bingo card so that if nothing else, you can at least be entertained. This should also help pass the time just as much as those shots of Fireball.
A lot of time, biker gangs get a bag rap and most for good reason. For instance, a few months ago people were outraged when a biker gang chased down a man and his family through the streets of New York City, pulled him from the car and savagely beat him in front of his wife and child. A story like that will probably turn most people sour on the idea of a biker gang. Good thing that there are still people in this world that are can restore our faith.
Last Sunday, the brain trust behind the Family Guy series decided to kill off one of the members of the cast. Ask anyone, and they would have thought Meg would be the first one to go. Instead, the creatives decided it was time for Brian to say his final goodbye and a fatal run in with a car. Many were shocked that a character that was so consistently funny would be the first one to get the boot but may Seth MacFarlane just got tired of doing Brian’s voice. Although, that scenario seems highly unlikely since it’s his actual voice.
Mike Polk Jr. is a great comedian and is known very well throughout Cleveland. He was known by most even before his epic “Factory of Sadness” rant a couple years ago. In the first edition, he went off about the Browns and their inability to beat the Texans. He even managed to coin new terms still heard around Cleveland today.
