Gripe:  TV

Bill is a Buffalo Bills and a Syracuse fan...both virtually impossible to watch on TV this past weekend.

Today, the Powerball Lottery jackpot has risen to above $425 million, as nobody won the big jackpot on Saturday.  Keeler is running the Powerball Partnership Contest, today through Wednesday.  Here's how it works:

We take a randomly selected phone caller who gives us 5 numbers between 1 and 59 and then a Powerball between 1 and 35.  Keeler then buys the Powerball ticket for this Wednesday night's drawing.  The partnership comes in if the ticket wins!  We'll split any winnings on these numbers 4 ways...3 people in the studio (Bill, Jeff and Kristine) and the caller who provided those numbers.

WIBX and Keeler in the Morning are not responsible for lost or stolen tickets, failure to purchase a winning ticket or any issues of phone connection and communication.  Contestant picks will be posted at

 Miss America is from Syracuse

The new Miss America will start the first day of her reign the same way most of her predecessors did — with a frolic in the Atlantic City surf.

Nina Davuluri will speak at a news conference earlier Monday at Boardwalk Hall, where she became the first contestant of Indian heritage to win the crown Sunday night.
