John McElhenny Gets Us The Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Coverage Videos From FOX and CBS

Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Coverage on Boston TV stations

Joey,

I thought people might be interested in the clips of the Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Tournament that ran on Boston television stations.

Here is the segment that ran on WBZ Channel 4.

Here is the segment that ran on FOX 25 TV=

The FOX clip has a nice interview with Noah from The Farm Bar & Grille. But the best part is the impromptu dance party in the same clip by my friends Heather Fraelick and Gina Briguglio. Somebody call Dancing with the Stars!

The CBS Boston Most Valuable Blogger Everything Else Category Rant

As many of you know (and I swear I don’t want to be obnoxiously asking for your votes every two seconds) Good Morning Gloucester, our blog is among the 30 or so nominees for Boston’s Most Valuable Blogger in the Everything Else category.

It’s a great honor and it’s all because of our contributors and community who send in material as well as comment on posts and/or help out with the latest foolish plans we may be concocting to dominate the world.

I don’t want this to come off as a plea for votes but I just now had the time to click through the other nominees on the list and out of the 30 or so, there really IMO are only about 5 that belong there.  I’m not even saying GMG deserves the top spot (although in my mind it does) but I could see how someone could vote for Adam Gaffin’s excellent and oft updated Universal Hub

What I cannot understand is how there are some nominees in the category that hardly ever even update or may only update once a week.  There are some nominees that have a total of three blog posts for the whole month of August.  We bang that out by 8AM on any given day.  So if you have time and see some of the other nominees even in the same category that we are nominated in, look through and at least vote for some blog that cares enough to maintain the thing.

I would tell you that there are some local Cape Ann blogs that I would put up over at least 60% of the nominees in the contest.

Anyway I truly am appreciative to whoever nominated us in the first place and I hope that if we don’t win that someone that puts in the time and energy that we do, does win.

Thanks for your support…end rant

Drowning in Gloucester – News Coverage

All the News Stations came to Gloucester to report on the drowning at Braces Cove. 

This is about the coverage.  Channel 4, 5 and 7 were all at Good Harbor Beach reporting. 

I captured WBZ reporting on video. 

 My heart goes out to the family who lost a loved one today.

CBS Amazing Race Kicks Off Video In Gloucester Exclusive On Good Morning Gloucester

Here is exclusive Video Shot At my Dock This Morning Showing the CBS Amazing Race Teams Boarding Gloucester Fishing Boats- The Jennie C, No Excuses, Karen Lynn, Tuna.Com, Lady J and Lady Lane.

I accidentally call it the Great Race in the video but I know it’s called The Amazing Race. 

You can see the teams dressed in different colors walking down the gangway to board the fishing boats at the State Fish Pier.  Then they head out single file past the historic Paint Factory to  Gloucester’s inner harbor where they passed by The Greasy Pole and Hammond Castle en route back to The Eastern point Yacht club where they disembarked and the race begins.  On East Main Street one of the teams stopped the Mrs and her friends who just got out of a run-fit class for directions to Boston’s Logan Airport.  She had to sign a release stating that she may be on TV.

One team stopped while in traffic on East Main St and rolled down their window.  It was a good looking man and woman who asked how to get to Logan.   When the car stopped two cameramen popped out of SUV which was right behind the man and woman race team who were rolling seperately in a Smart Car. The cameramen and a microphone were shoved in the Mrs face and when she replied how to get to Logan the team told her not to speak to anyone else.  Then they signed the releases and were off.

I’ll post many more pictures of the teams over the course of the next few days. if you are looking at the video right now at 6:58PM it may be fuzzy but the quality will improve within an hour when it is fully processed by YouTube.
