The radio buzz... the top talk radio stories of the day.


High school running back - Ronnie Hastie - FLAGGED by referees for taking a knee in the end zone and pointing to heaven.

Hastie - called with unsportsmanlike conduct and given a 15 yard penalty by ref's who didn't think that the act was acceptable. 

"It's hard to believe that dropping to your knee - and giving respect to God in Heaven is anywhere near being unsportsmanlike."

Christian rights advocate James Henry speaking with Dan Kennedy at WOC in Davenport, IA.

Hastie says giving glory to God is something he does every time he gets into the end zone and has never been spoken to about it before.

Why this time?

"Well - it's a rule that's in the discretion of the referee. And - maybe this time - the referee thought maybe he went over - crossed the line - was taunting or was unsportsmanlike - so was flagged for a 15 yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty."

That was Sports Attorney Rob Romano - speaking with Scott Fitzgerald at WERC in Birmingham, AL.

Hastie was flagged by the ref for apparently breaking a Washington State Interscholastic Activities Association rule that bans players from drawing attention to themselves.

Buzzing on...

Congressman Charlie Rangel CENSURED by the House of Representatives for Ethics Violations - including financial and fundraising misconduct.

The decision - made by the House - Thursday - in a 333 to 79 vote.

The Democratic lawmaker and some of his colleagues pleaded for reprimand - which is a lesser punishment than censure.

Will he finish out his term? That question asked of Fox News Political Analyst Jeff Birnbaum - by Vic Porcelli at WRPW in Normal, IL.

"He says he will. He was reelected. And I think - even though - he's 80 years old - he will try to revive his reputation as best he can. It's not going to be easy because he does not have very much power any more. Even though he's been in Congress for 40 years - he is relegated to the essentially back bench."

Birnbaum continued:

"It's very hard to overcome something like this - historic humiliation."

That answer - from Birnbaum - as to whether or not Rangel will run for another term. Which, we'll have to wait and see.
