Hey there, I'm Shmitty! You probably hear me if you've ever called the studio, given gas prices or looked for school closings! But I'm much more then the person that keeps Gary Allen and Steve Kelly in line.
I'm originally from Lansing and I still pride myself on the 'cap city'. I went to Grand Valley State University for broadcasting. Go Lakers! I graduated in 2009 and after an... interesting summer job hunting, I got the privilege to join the mighty WOOD and wake up with two incredibly knowledgable, witty and always hilarious guys. I love working with this morning team and giving you the News, Weather, Traffic and Sports you need! And now I can give you a glimpse into my world, so check back often!
The ultimate predictor of the 2012 presidential election is: underwear sales.
CafePress.com, an online retailer of personalized t-shirts, undies and other household items, reports that it has seen a notable contrast in sales of pro-Obama underwear versus pro-Romney underwear. All four styles of pro-Obama undies on CafePress.com -- boxers, briefs, thongs and boy shorts -- are outselling the pro-Romney styles.
Interestingly, CafePress has another finding when it comes to political panties: while Obama supporters out-buy Romney supporters for pro-candidate undies, anti-Obama customers are out-hustling anti-Romney folks when it comes to anti-candidate skivvies. Almost no one has bought anti-Romney boxers and briefs and just a small amount have purchased anti-Romney thongs and boy shorts. Yet anti-Obama undies of all styles have been selling strongly.
