We interrupt this broadcast …

I know you’ve all been waiting with bated breath for this news, and good ole’ WTAE put it on their home page … breaking news ya know?!

Yes, right up there with cop killing, fatal accidents, a sex meet with a 12 year old girl, and a nationally covered ID court case … is the fact that Marcie had a girl!!! Wahoo.

Can Marcie’s Baby Blog be far behind?

And while we’re making fun of WTAE’s website, how about this screen shot?

Not only is WTAE’s weather forecasting so good that they can tell you how the day is going to progress … they also believe that they can tell you that exactly at 4:57 this afternoon it is going to be 24 degrees. Not five o’clock mind you! 4:57 damn it!

Edit: I’ve been informed I’m an idiot. Those are supposed to be sunrise and sunset…even if they are a few minutes off.

    Does that mean that they were forecasting the winds to be from the SW at 5-15 MPH exactly at noon?

    Or does that SW stand for “Sally Wiggin”? If that’s the case, I don’t know what the 5-15 would represent. Perhaps it represents the estimated number of times her mesmerizing eyes cause my heart to flutter during a newscast? The number of different colors found in one of her stunning plaid or paisley jackets? The number of children we could have if she would only say “yes” to my marriage proposal? Or the number of loving glances she gives me through the TV screen? Alas, I shall never know. *Sigh*

    Sally Wiggin has got nothing on Joe Denardo though. I just lose myself in the craters of his face.

    Ok, but isn’t it a joke thinking that WTAE can actually tell you what it is going to be down to the minute. Forget the 5-day forcast, WTAE’s bringing you the next 60-minute forecast, minute-by-minute. And it’s brought to you by Super Doppler 4000 and Joe Denardo’s Weather Watch 4 with 8,000 meteorologists on staff for one snowflake.

    And I love the freaking baby announcement in the top stories. It’s great to see WTAE knows and understands the news elements to journalism.
