Hearne: Full House Bucket List, Favre’s Finger & KU Ticket Czar

What it’s like ambushing Dave Coulier with his Full House TV theme song, then jamming with him onstage at Jardines?

Most excellent, reports keyboard wizard Mark Lowrey, who did all of the above last Friday at the Plaza jazz joint.

"He actually sounded pretty good," Lowrey says of Coulier’s harmonica  jam. "I finally got to scratch that off the bucket list."

Oh and don’t miss Lowrey’s Live at Jardine’s CD release party this coming Monday at Jardine’s

Everybody Loves Rodney?

Turns out not everybody in Lawrence or at KU was enamored with former KU tickets czar Rodney Jones…

Oh sure, many recipients of Jones ticket schmoozes – like the coach who got primo ducats for a porn star – couldn’t have been happier to kiss up to party boy when Jones played sugar plum fairy to their game day needs and wants. But that Jones went down hard in the  ticket scandal many think led to athletic director Lew Perkins hasty exit comes as little surprise to others who had a different prespective.

"What I’m not shocked at is that Rodney was involved," says one source with ties to the ticket trafficing. "He was a snake – I didn’t like that sonnuvagun."

The source characterizes Jones as a divorced playboy who hung out with celebs like Danny Manning and lived about as large as one can live and get away with it in a small college town like Lawrence.

Knuckle Sandwich?

Funny guy Josh Wolf’s take on the concept of quarterback Brett Favre transmitting photos of his you-know-what to Jets sideline reporter Jenn Sterger:

"Let me ask you guys, would you ever in your lifetime send someone a picture of your dick if it looked like that? I thought it looked like his thumb. But then I looked again and there was no knuckle."

    Agreed Harley
    Hearne, maybe you guys could get Tom Wopat to come to town. Or that guy from BJ and the Bear, or maybe Gopher from Love Boat. Too bad Jim Varney is dead (I think). Or that guy who says "you can call me Ray, or you can call me Jay….").

    "You Guys?"
    Hey, I’m not the guy booking comedy here. The show did go off the air in 1995 (I never watched it, don’t do TV, sorry) but I did hang with Coulier two years ago. At Velvet Dog, Martini Corner and Jardine’s. And he was inundated with 30-somethings wanting to schmooze with him. Maybe you guys are just too old, eh?
