When it's time for closing, I play while Rachel cleans......

It's the first non-NFL Sunday in five months, so welcome back to all the listeners who merely podcast the show! Yes, I am still on from 1:00 until 3:00 PM Central Time for the latest installment of The Closer. 

If you know me even a little bit, you're certainly aware of my fondness for great human interest stories. Today's show reflects that.

At 1:15, Ben Utecht will be calling in.

Ben played football at the University of Minnesota in the early 2000s and then had a 4-year NFL career (including being a member of the 2006 Super Bowl champion Indianapolis Colts) before a severe concussion at Cincinnati Bengals' training camp in 2009 effectively ended his playing days. Since then, Ben has been a tireless advocate in making others aware of the need for more strenuous research in treating brain injuries. He has also fulfilled his lifelong dream of a music career, which he also uses to share his personal story.

Then at 2:00, Philadelphia investment adviser Rich Weinstein will check in. Who is Rich Weinstein? Well, do you recall the myriad videos of MIT professor (and Obamacare architect) Jonathan Gruber emerging last year where he professed that the Affordable Care Act law was written so as not to be understood by American voters? Well it was Rich who unearthed said videos, resulting in liberal Democrats to downplay Gruber's involvement despite these same people showering him with praise during the ACA's initial planning phase. Anyhow, Rich will join the program to discuss the continued fallout from these sound bites as well as give insight to how we haven't yet seen the worst of Obamacare (gulp).

In the non-guest segments, I may discuss the Brian Williams kerfuffle, which seems to get more embarrassing for NBC News with each passing day.

So please give me a call at (651) 289-4488 if you'd like to discuss any of the topics I plan on addressing. You can also text comments/questions to (651) 243-0390.

You can listen live in the Twin Cities at AM 1280 on your radio dial. In and out of the Minneapolis-St Paul area, you can listen to the program on the Internet by clicking this link, or check us out via iheart radio

Even though I have a face for radio, there is a UStream channel where you can watch the broadcast, if you so desire. Check it out here.  

And if you're so inclined, follow along on Twitter at #narn or "Like" our Facebook page.

Until then.....
