3 Quick statements before getting into all of today's topics on Good Day and the Final Idol Chatter on Fox40.
1. Sacramento City Council approves New Arena Deal 7-2. Finally after a long battle of will they stay, will they go we now have a new home for the Sacramento Kings but that is not all that will take place there. Graduations, Monster Truck shows, Ice Shows, conferences. and so much more. Thank goodness it's done now push those shovels in the ground and lets get this built.
2. The final performances on American Idol took place and though it's anyone's game I think Jena will win but I want Caleb to win. Much more in Final Thoughts
3. Yesterday I said I thought Josh from team Blake should come in 2nd on the voice. I misspoke. I wanted to say Jake. However Jake did come in second, Christina who I thought would win came in 3rd and Josh from team Usher was crowned the new voice.
However we know who the Voice is when it comes to morning news and that is.... Cody Stark who returned today. So what is happening Today in the News.....

Good Day Sacramento:
In the BEST hour ever today Courtney shared her new reading glasses she found while in Tahoe with all the Bling. Marianne's Daily list talked about 3 foods you can swap out for healthy eating. Mark's News of the Weird saw Tara cat throw out first pitch. The 5am club member was introduced. Cody was the Emcee / Game Show Host for the Good Day Brady Bunch Driving Challenge. The BEST part is either Cody's wig or Producer Corey as Egg Boy clucking like a chicken.
Right when the Drive challenge was set to take place with Amy the car battery died delaying the action. Once the car was running again Amy took the test and FAILED!!! Breaking the egg. Marianne had her daily list. Ken's daily California Chrome update was a man who paints a statue outside of the Preakness in the winning teams colors. Courtney's Check this out was Quinoa Protein Powder and Mark and Marianne liked it.
In this hour Mark, Cody, Camera Guy Scott and Ken talked to Julia from Legoland Water Park. This was pretty cool. Also in the hour Amy went to Marlene Simon aka The Plant Lady to check out her garden. She has at least 85 rose bushes. The driving challenge continued with Julissa passing, Mark failing, and Tina not only passing but retaking the course in reverse and still passed. Tina is the Queen of the Driving challenge as of the end of the 7am hour
Celebrating 60 years Jimboy's Taco's wants you to celebrate with them Say Happy Birthday and get a second taco for just $0.60 Mark had 60 of them. Not really but he was there to celebrate. Amy continued from the Plant Lady's garden. Laura and Marianne took the driving challenge. Cambi was checking out Turnaround Coffee. Ken talked about the Sacramento Music Festival. The #9amtopic was introduced. Today's topic was Tales from behind the wheel.
In this hour Ken and Courtney both passed the driving challenge however it was Marianne that ended up being the overall winner. Cambi continued from Turnaround Coffee. Mark ate tacos and introduced the Jimboy Family. Ken's Manly Minute was about why men are better at driving than woman. The #9amtopic was guided by Laura and Julissa. The Afterlife performed on the Good Day Stage. Tina was Dishin With Tina and did not say where she would be Dishin next week so we will find out together on Sunday's Good Day.
Because of my day and that I already talked about the Final Idol Chatter on Fox today Final Thoughts Will be strictly Good Day Sacramento.
Today's show was a very special show. Jimboy's Tacos a good friend of the show is celebrating it's 60th birthday. Jimboy's tacos have a very unique taste to them and quite frankly to die for. Jimboy's is the only taco place that I know that puts Parmesan cheese on their tacos. Today it was revealed to Mark S. Allen and Good Day that was an accident that stuck. Jim knocked a can of the cheese off the counter space he was working on right onto the taco. Happy Birthday Jimboy's Oh Boy
We always learn from the Plant Lady usually on the weekend show but today we got to see her personal garden which consists of 85 rose bushes. Her garden is beautiful and very large.
Today is Wednesday so Tina was Dishin with Tina at Surla's in Modesto. Can't wait to see where Tina goes next week. Turn in Sunday with Cody and Lori in the 8am hour.
Today marks the 40th anniversary of the Brady Bunch Driving Challenge so the cast headed out to Cal Expo to take the Good Day Driving Challenge. Cody the official Good Day Game Show Host was the man on the scene as each driver took their turns on the course. The object was simple DON'T BREAK THE EGG but get close to the pylon First up was Amy. Amy did very well but got a little greedy and ended up hitting the cone knocking the egg off. The best part about Amy's turn came before she drove when the car they used would not start. At first they thought the battery died but the cable to the battery was not connected thus making for a funny moment of Good Day History with her, Cody and Egg Boy Producer Corey. After the car started and the challenge was underway Julissa took her turn. Julissa did not hit the egg so she passed but she also was so far back of the pylon I was closer and I wasn't there. After Julissa it was time for Mark to go. Previously on Good Day Mark won the Driving challenge so I thought he would pass with flying colors. Mark shifted his body just a little and he hit the egg knocking it off. Mark Failed. After Mark came Tina. Tina is amazing in so many ways not only did she not knock the egg off but she then drove the course in reverse and still didn't knock the egg off. On of the most competitive people on the show is Laura. Laura drove in heels and drove well also passing the test by not knocking off the egg. Marianne followed Laura (More on that shortly) Ken and Courtney finished off the challenge in the 9am hour. Courtney and Ken passed but fell short of winning because Marianne took everyone to school. Marianne not only kept the egg safe but finished 3 inches from the cone.
As you know last Wednesday was my birthday, I was scheduled to go to Good Day and watch the show but due to schedule conflicts that was postponed until today. I got to meet more amazing people that work behind the scenes. All the AWESOME art work you see on the show comes from the Good Day/CBS 13 Art department. Though I cannot remember all the names I did meet with Don Smith who is one of the nicest people you could meet. Today was my first day meeting him and it felt like I knew him for years. The artists on the show are just as amazing in person as they are in their artwork. I also met with Cody, Mark, Ken, and Tina today. During my visit I stayed for the dress rehearsal for this weeks upcoming Mark at the Movies airing Saturday at 430am on CW31, Please set your DVR because this weeks show is very funny. It will star Mark, Rachel, Anna, Big Al, Brian, Heather, and Brooke who is enjoying her last 2 shows before she pursues her career in LA. Brooke is a long time friend to both Mark at the Movies and Good Day because she won a contest on Good Day and later became a feature on Mark at the Movies. I want to thank everyone at Mark at the Movies as well for treating me like I am one of the family.
Going back to Good Day for a moment NO one could be as fine of people after the camera is off than they can. Everyone in the art department all of you will always have my respect for all you do. It's your art work that provides a lot of the content that I use for this blog so thank you for everything from the bottom of my heart.
