Michael Dot Scott

I've got your workdays covered 10am to 3pm here on 97.3 The Dawg. I've been described as a "hot mess on a cold night". Tune in and you'll hear why. Born in Metairie, grew up in Alexandria, but I've spent over half of my life here in Lafayette. The best things about me are my incredible wife and three amazing kids. I still can't figure out how I've become lucky enough to be a part of their lives. I've always been fascinated with music in a way that's hard for me to define with words. Since I was very young I've been drawn to great melodies, lyrics and story telling so naturally I've been drawn to Country music for as long as I can remember. I wouldn't call myself a musician, but have been playing guitar since I was about 13-years-old. Guitar is like a never ending puzzle for me to keep trying to figure out. I also enjoy Zombies, peanut butter and trying to take left turns on Johnston St.

This Water Park Could Be Louisiana’s Best Kept Summer Secret [Pictures]

With the Summertime heat in South Louisiana, water parks are a great way to stay cool and have a ton of family fun. You'd think by now we'd have a lot more of them than we do. As I just found out, maybe we actually do have more water parks than we realize. I just came across this water park I didn't know existed. It looks incredible, and it's only an hour away.

Scripps National Spelling Bee Contestant Nails An Incredibly Difficult Louisiana Word

12-year-old Ananya Vinay of California won the Scripps National Spelling Bee the other night, but a Louisiana word almost stood in her way of spelling bee glory. Both of the final contestants were thrown a curve ball with the second to last word of the competition, and incredibly both got it right. So, what was the word? Was it Boudin? Sauce Piquante? Catfish Courtbouillon? Belizaire The Cajun? Nope, it was a Louisiana word I couldn't have got right even if my mom's bread pudding recipe was on the line...

This Is Probably The Worst Gender Reveal Of All Time So Far [Video]

At some point, elaborate gender reveal parties and videos became all the rage. Each video that hits the internet raises the bar more and more. Look, if it's something you're into, more power to you.

Insane Weather Phenomenon Called ‘The Tail Of The Devil’ Will Have Running For The Basement You Don’t Have [Video]

You know, hurricanes are just about my least favorite thing on Earth, second only to tornadoes. At least I can track a hurricane, but tornadoes form at the drop of a dime, anywhere they want to given the right weather conditions. Now, I hate them even more because I've just learned that tornadoes can grow tails. Yeah, that's right. Check out this video someone captured showing something called "The Tail Of The Devil"
