Interview with Marathoners Todd Brown and Bill Urbanski on Boston Bombings

NBC Connectictut interviewed Todd Brown who was running in the Boston Marathon on the dApril 15, 2013 day of the bombing. We are of course glad that Todd who is host of the 2014 Tennessee convention as well as Bill Urbanski who hosted the 2011 Ohio convention were not hurt.

50 Completer Aron Ralston in Raunchy Tosh.O Skit on Comedy Central


The full Comedy Central Tosh.O clip featuring 50-completer Aron Ralston that aired this week is now available. It’s raunchy, bawdy, irreverent and quite unlike anything ever done. But if you’re into Tosh.O humor it’s hilarious. The skit is a web redemption of Jason Kruk who went to the bathroom while climbing. The video was posted to youtube and went viral.

NOTE: This is very graphic, uses foul language, discusses sexual situations and is based on potty humor.
