The latest on the Eagles, the Super Bowl outlook, and some Phillies and SIxers talk, too, as Philadelphia Inquirer award-winning columnist Mike Sielski joins Bill Furman and Jim "Chet" Chesko on this week's Philly Pressbox Radio Roundtable. Our pal Steve Cwitkowitz stops by, too, with his views on the Flyers and to fill you in on an upcoming special appearance by a popular former Eagle. We wonder what you'll think of our Super Bowl predictions! Oh, we didn't have a winner last week with our Philly sports trivia question, so we'll have the same prize giveaway this week - an autographed 8 x 10 pic of former Birds Vince Papale and Dennis Franks ("Last Laugh") - courtesy Carl's Cards & Collectibles, Inc.
Can We Create An Electronic Voting System To Empower All Citizens To Participate In The Election Pro
When Election Day rolls around, most people choose to stay home rather than take advantage of the opportunity to choose the people who create the laws that affect their lives. Why is that? Have people become so skeptical and hopeless that they no longer believe they have the power to choose individuals who will represent their interests? What would happen if we simplified the voting process and made it possible to go online, type in your social security number, and cast your ballot over a 2 week voting period? What if you could go online and rate each elected official, judges included, and also see their rating prior to voting on them? Would that increase voter participation and change election outcomes?
The Blackhawks got back to their winning ways with a 2-0 triumph over the St. Louis Blues last night. Per usual, Kane, Panarin & Crawford had a lot to do with it. The Bulls surprised many with their win over the Cavaliers on Saturday. Should fans be impressed with the win, or skeptical of the team's continued inconsistencies?

The Memphis Grizzlies are in the thick of the Western Conference Playoff picture, where most people had them being at the beginning of the season. Why, then are so many so skeptical of the future of this team? Host Joe Mullinax and his guests dive in to this and much more on an all-new episode of GBBLive Wednesday, January 20th at 8:00 PM CT on BlogTalkRadio!
Joe is joined in the first segment, as always, by Chris Faulkner, the Managing Editor of SB Nation's Grizzly Bear Blues! Joe & Chris reflect on a successful home stand for Memphis & will talk about which players will be the most important to the Grizzlies staying in the playoff hunt moving forward in to the second half of the season.
In the second segment, GBB Senior Writer Matt Hrdlicka returns to GBBLive, and he and Joe are not as optimistic about Memphis' current standing as the seeding would suggest. The guys will analyze Memphis' upcoming schedule, future free agents, and dive in to just how difficult it will be for the Grizzlies to be successful now and in the future if nothing changes personnel/asset wise.

Love is a tricky business in today’s day and age. We start out so young and innocent, ready to jump in with both feet and believe in the fairytale. That naivety lasts as long as our first real heartbreak, and then we begin the process of becoming more guarded. As women, we want to love. Compassion and nurturing is in our nature, but battling trust issues changes the game completely for us and for our prospective future partners. When we meet someone new, for example, rather than reacting with pure excitement like we did when we were younger, we are skeptical. What does he want? How quickly can we find out his true motives so we don’t waste our time or get hurt again? Join us and share your views on trust Jan 19 9AM EST.

It seems that many even in ministry are beginning to allow skeptical ideologies to influence their theological spectrum. However, this is problematic. In this episode, Pastor Brian explains why. Join us on this episode. We will take your calls towards the end of the show at (323) 784-9617.

As a depression and anxeity afflicted I understand the unfortunate stigma attached to mental health issues in this country. It is a shameful thing in this country to have mental defects. It is just a lack of toughness and over sensitivity, and we should just buck up and stop whining. They say other people have the same problems and they are fine. They say we are fakers and just don't want to face reality. Well the people just like us aren't fine. Just because you don't know others or you think they are fine by the smile on their face, believe me, if someone feels like us, they are having trouble handling it just like us. It is an insult for someone who is afraid or skeptical of mental health issues to excuse them and to put them off to us as if we have control of it somehow.
on the next BigEfromMo show I will address the issue of mental health in this country and over the world. I will go over the myths and misconceptions of mental health disorders. I want to bridge the gap between societies expectations and understanding and what it really is all about. Call ins are most welcomed and together we can send out the message, you are not alone, we are here for you. Join me Friday January 8th at 10pm, right here for a revealing and much needed and long overdue real talk about mental health issues.
What will Tuesday's firing of Chip Kelly mean for the Eagles' near- and long-term future? Legendary Philadelphia Inquirer sportswriter Frank Fitzpatrick makes a return visit to the Philly Pressbox Radio Roundtable, joining Bill Furman and Jim "Chet" Chesko to talk about Jeffrey Lurie's decision to part ways with Kelly, and the fact that 2015 has been one of the worst years ever for Philadelphia's pro sports teams. In his distinguished career as a sportswriter and columnist, Frank has seen it all; he has been a beat writer for the Phillies, Eagles and the Penn State Nittany Lions, and today writes a popular column in the Sunday Inquirer. He's won numerous awards, written several books, covered many Olympics and been a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize. Also on this week's show: Sixers and Flyers talk and our Philly sports trivia question and prize giveaway courtesy Carl's Cards & Collectibles, Inc.
