Steve Shaw needs to make more Facebook videos…

Last Friday, Joleen Chaney posted the following video on Facebook. In it, we learned three things:

1. News 9 is now requiring its on-air talent to meet weekly Facebook video quotas...

2. Joleen Chaney is easily amused...

3. Steve Shaw really wants Joleen Chaney to invite him out to a bar...

Check it out:

Hijacked by Shaw the Law aka Steve Shaw. #OhSure

Wow! Who knew it was that easy to make Joleen Chaney laugh?! That's awesome! If she thinks Steve's not-so-coy attempt to trick her into inviting him to a bar was funny, imagine how much she'd laugh at my trivia questions, limericks and Falkor impersonation over a nice dinner at Zio's. I could even draw her caricature sketch on the tablecloth. She love it more than riding in a tilt-a-whirl. She wouldn't stop laughing! It would be so much fun!

Yeah, in case it wasn't obvious, Steve went with the old "Hey, maybe if I bring up going to a bar, she'll invite me to a bar" routine. It's an old school technique that's been practiced by men for ages. Kind of like an old promo code from Retail Me Not, it doesn't always work, but when it does, you feel golden. It was definitely worth a shot

Anyway, I have no clue if JoJo ended up at a bar, but I'm pretty sure Steve did. He may also have hit one up on Saturday and Sunday. Check out the quota-filling video he posted Sunday afternoon, just hours before he probably lost a lot of money on the Super Bowl:

Who's gonna ween?

I have a request for News 9. Can you all please up Steve Shaw's video quota? We really do need more. I only ask that they ditch the royalty free acoustic music and replace it with something from Steve's CD collection. Perhaps some Hall and Oats, Eagles or whatever music Steve plays on the jukebox at a Henry Hudson's after loosening the tie and rolling up the sleeves after a hard day's work. Even better, maybe we can we get him to replace Kelly on My Two Cents?

"Hey, Steve here with My Two Cents. You know what I like? That would be a good $5 steak. I had one yesterday for breakfast and it was great. Put some Heinz 57 on it and thank me later. I'm Steve Shaw and that's My Two Cents."

Seriously, I've said it once and I'll say it again: Steve Shaw is an American badass. He's like the honey badger of local TV news reporters. He just doesn't give a shit. He's not afraid to make an incorrect sports prediction, show off a leopard print pillow, or trick Joleen Chaney into asking him to a bar. Hell, the dude still buys new releases on DVD from Best Buy! Yes, Best Buy! Who still does that? Steve Shaw, that's who. The man lives by his own rules. As long as there is scotch involved, he doesn't care what other people think or say.
