And put the work mistreat people it's a football Friday. Rookie quarterback setting the world on fire. We'll talk about it plus Nick Saban responds to Josh Rosen and don't expect to seek Larry Irving traded any time soon at least not as soon. As we thought those name on a jam packed Friday gullah are ready to do this all absolutely nicely again last night's seven pre season games and we had just come off the game Wednesday night of Carolina. And Houston a couple of rookies and Shawn Watson. Locked in a Christian McCaffery talking about how well lots and played and I guess mr. riske took that Barton said. Okay do you play well armor try and won a bubble of one up him a bit and boy he sure did you know it's hilarious is that even the most educated of football fans. Will have this reaction we all know we all know these games don't really mean anything they don't count but they matter you wanna see good things. At its the first pre season game too risky in this case last night is going up against the reserves and a flag with three dollars. And yet we will react overwhelming if it looked terrible last night to crush we wanted to say do you see that should take up genre Watson and instead we're basically saying the bears have finally found the quarterback David looking fours and settle and while I'm not gonna go that far I absolutely understand your point because they'll be many people organist say. Well at ease up you know it was a third quarterback in waiting before half a nice two minute drill a nice second half organ and all the numbers and how we played in such. But it was against guys who won't be in the league are okay that's fine but all it can do is go up against guys who are up against. And he was fantastic he showed a lot of things he showed it is very limited time. In North Carolina with accuracy and completion you know completions in a row which which will get into. That's all we can judge him on an important it would sort of crushed him if you air mailed some balls that we're gonna talk well bottom when he did well it it the competition will get better. You'll go play get a you know that going through the pre season. Woolsey as you'll hear John Fox said the depth chart not changing. But all I can do is play these the plays he spoke to play. And let the chips fall where they may and he looked very very good light and for those of us whose job it is to react we have two options one. Is the reasonable common headed to right it's just the first pre season game reaction and the other is. I got this guy looks fantastic and personally I vote for the last time. Cubs Dodgers win again I again I feel like saying. That we shouldn't even bother mentioning anymore when they win it's only news when they lose the Dodgers are ridiculous they really are they haven't lost a series. Since their June 5 the seventh series against the national all of the other teams in the league have lost at least six series. Ever lost a series since the beginning. Of June and Yu Darvish you know covered the Timor has he done well he became the fourth pitcher in modern baseball history that since 19100. To have at least ten strikeouts in each of his first two starts with a team so. He gets traded over there. You wonder because you are struggling no doubt about that is leading up to this. And he has been money in his first you start to remember that or that Clayton Kershaw back and I really hope they're gonna meet her shock you with it and to win the World Series you know personal hasn't been great in the policies but imagine him coming back. Healthy with what they have right now which particular yeah the Darvish thing he can't help but wonder if the weight of possibly being traded was on him his last start before he got dealt he just fell apart completely. And now he's been as you mentioned my talent you're right I Jordan's been try to win some money in makes him history this weekend at quail hollow would did not start extraordinarily well. For him speed one over after one round of the PG yeah yeah he's won over Rory McIlroy who's the favorite was in this turner was Rory was the the favored in that speech was next again we know it's been trying to do. Become the sixth player for the career. It hitting the current all the majors you could have been the youngest he will be the youngest. If he's able to do it. But he made back to back birdies at 78 to go one over. Where were finished. He was never won an official event after posting an opening round score. Or over par it's Kevin was is accused archives Iran I got an article I don't even know and and Thorpe Bjorn Olson. Olson Olson I don't want to draft king's funeral this. Yeah really needed someone to fit his the money slot into which you think it's really actually have him as part of my group undress me go oh listen here to go to 47 year old from Denmark Fargo international wins. Mrs. first leave following any round of any PGA tour. Are you made fourteen of foreigners were doing gang. Fourteen of fourteen part. Inside ten feet you know and as a money this weekend Soledad AMOCO are passionately reset eradicate the top. Name writer the NBA has released its schedule for the opening night the opening weekend Christmas Day and there are very few surprises it's. Loaded with Golden State enclave dad as well it should be in this it's going to be. What the warriors and cavaliers army Christmas for the third straight year by the way. Chris miss with LeBron in the family. Eleventh year now he'll replaying on Christmas Day care eleven and certainly that's what you do you know you're the biggest are and where you play Democrats what happened that you just send them it is our LeBron every or you know it's and the wherever your gonna be in or is currently celebrates Christmas on a different and that's exactly right. And it's OK understood they got have to be good to have that out there ever been. Every once in awhile I guess there at home right right back this year they go to Golden State has the warriors got the win and to the winner I'm. I making a basketball we'll have low junior a little bit later this morning the knicks and the rockets are talking again about Carmelo talk again a really this is the only team Carmelo is gonna wave the no trade clause for so it kind of puts in Mexico but a little bit of a box. We'll talk two wardrobe out that you need they need a third team involved to make all the money were knocking out. Or anybody with all that the the facts about that bottom line is that's were Carmelo months ago. That makes it a narrow narrow channel for the next to try to get something done I mean you're threading a needle there with him an unlikely carry Irving thing where. The cavaliers. Have a very odd I think a very reasonable option of just keeping him the knicks dealt which is to say they could keep Carmelo but it really doesn't make any sense for them. I've never really thought it made any sense for him they can try and call his bluff and say look we don't have a deal here you can play another year on this young rebuilding team. Or give us another team or two year might be willing to talk about opera and I have no idea what his react automobile that'll know. So we'll find out cartel. He's an action headlined by Mitchell Drabinsky let's make that all the top presented by progressive insurance or they'll compare rates for years you get the best deal even if it's not. With progressive saving you time and money now that progressive call or click today you you used the expression the perfect storm earlier this week in relation to something else. And and I don't know why I mean it's obvious and not that I've never heard it before. But it is stuck in my head this week. And we've had a lot of those this week. And the one in Chicago last night was the ideal ones they've gotten Mike Glenn and right who is the the highly paid for one year free agent quarterback to the bears bring in and the fans are completely unenthusiastic about it. He want to going up against one of the best defenses in football and Denver he throws a pick six. On the third play of the game yup as a moderate and and wants all of the reserves come into the game Mitchell Drabinsky who the Bear's mortgage the future it's rated up to get. Winds are coming in setting the there's real world on fire riske didn't go in second trip to rescuing her 3 march and attention as a way it went in second or so to rescue came in third. Into this game. That was the perfect storm of circumstances for us to wake up this morning and say well obviously the clock is now ticking on the Mitchell too risky era in Chicago but you know you do what you look at again. If you wanna look at the numbers in other that that's just fine the numbers were were great eighteen to 250160. Some yards and and a touchdown short touchdown pass as you rolling laughter Victor Cruz which which will break down a little bit. But it coincides with a bad outing by Glenn and who by the way. It was a quarterback in Tampa Bay before the number one pick in the draft or Vonage and there was blood and flooding goes to Chicago thinks he has new life that all of a sudden there's a number two pick in the draft. Being your quarterbacks ought to talk about deja Vu for him so that's really the key here. Awarded him one thing if too risky looked like he did. But Glenn and didn't play much through eight passes that he was six of eight. You know for fifty yards or whatever and and looked fine but instead it used to elevate and get Missouri get a blue tar studio grade point average for for his off court about a graduating. To a great would that the pick six on the third place we talked about and it's a terrible throw it wasn't at president of triple cover was a bad throw I had no idea where he restoring I don't know there was miscommunication again with the receiver or not that Robiskie comes in. And comes in especially at the end they have got a minute 55 to go in the half and he leads among a fifty yard drive he leads them on a touchdown drive. At one point in in his time out their completes ten in a row and always done that in college and I think he had eighteen or role any game in college and high percentage completion. Are in college certainly at a high percentage completion. Rate here as well. But again for getting the numbers. You know he looked good he looked poised to sort of set about to Shawn Watson. An end from the accuracy standpoint we talk about watch and haven't some off throws but still looked good morning resort. Promiscuous stormed parts I mean he he's a big kid. Strong arm can get the ball all over the place and he was comments from darts out there. And doing well I read a couple of times for some some some nice chunks as well. Can be dangerous runner to move the change. Change but he's he's another one of those guys you think of a you always say a big strong guy pocket got pretty good moves are really good athlete. No runs just enough to hurt ya but hill put the ball on the spot and he's not afraid to throw order in there and end in in traffic in coverage and try put on the money that the. Pete it is there's no wire here that what I say Foster ugly shot Watson yes I'll watch much to shut off into the night before. Does that mean they're going to be great players and it certainly doesn't mean they're not gonna have a night where they look like rookies exit because they're going to. But they showed you glimpses of why there is reason to be excited too risky put on display for you last night all the things about him that scouts like the reason that he was going to be the number one quarterback taken in the draft even though he's played as little as he has. Because of the size and the arm strength and all that kind of thing and the be somewhat unexpected athleticism and Watson had done at the night before he looked just terrific. The night before I thought he looked terrific tonight before even if you do it'd be nice to break out of it yesterday and he missed a couple of throws I did but that's going to happen or is he put on display for you all the reasons to be excited about him Drabinsky did exactly the same life and that thing. About Robiskie is look at the situations he was in a two minute drive. You know. Obviously just starting out as a kind of talk for a tumor to drive which he takes him fifty yards and throws the touchdown to Victor Cruz third quarter. 75 yard drive of which he's five for five for fifty yards so it's not like just these hoisting big plays that he had he played well he play he he had. Good sustained rise. And all over the place why there was in the pocket whether it was rolling right and I think coaches all doing nice job when they get these guys rolling a little bit as well the take out the field away give a little comfort. Out on the edge but he rolled right year old lefty stood in the pocket. He took some hits he made the throws. He was he was a very very accurate thrower that. That impressed me the most that you you're throwing to the right guy and then how are you getting it there and your on the money. You're giving your receiver changer leading them well you're throwing them open at times he really really look good I was very very impressed that I. For for all the trepidation. That god management are right pace at a new bill of at least at least right now going okay. You know the GM for the bears OK as a good start because they're taking a lot of guff and analysts and I was one of them not not that I didn't think. Mitchell at some point could be a good quarterback I it's an hour taken Watson first I would not taken too risky second so. A ride pace whose catch him in the team a lot of flak for that of you know what this guy gonna turn into an all that but it can bring this at least a sigh of relief now it's early but as we said before. If the air mailed out onto balls would be crushing them today he didn't he played well I don't care who was against all I can do is going there play against whose goal against any did extremely well and it's more than the numbers the numbers were fantastic if you look at them. But watching him watching his feet watching him roll up watching him square upper shoulders while he's rolling up which is. The most important thing when your role on the ball rolling left Roland Wright put the ball on the money was really. It was an image you don't haggling he had command. He had command of that offense the moment wasn't too big for him ever know which are going to get. I thought with the child watching you could expect more of a guy. Even though was his first NFL experience a guy who would be able handle them all because he's played in monster games in college and a lot of them. Which Robiskie hasn't that been the knock on him is yes he's got the arm yeah I get the completion percentage yes he had a string of of completions record. As well. But he only had thirteen starts what to get it do in the NFL lights go on. And you know what game one I think he checked the nice box. I would say this. I'm gonna be right I just went back and found it. My tweet April 27. If the bears believe intra miscue this was a great move Glenn and as a bridge people will crush its move but I like it for one guy. Greeting has redemption. All right let's take a listen to what that the media let's get right to the Lewis critical case -- it let me tell you quickly the other summer it has been appointed John Fox basically said we're not changing the depth chart don't ovary are sure why any Gunnison nor short Wile. You don't because as he mentioned now it it's tough to help the cause. He said hey Glenz might against the starters. That's a really good defense in Denver and and no doubt London struggle but no way now what does it do in practice. Would give you know you start to get too risky. More reps over Sanchez you know I don't know how the split had big and so will see where that gold but in no way shape or form I completely agree are you changing the quarterback depth chart. Form of the third sir your going to first trigger after one pre season and it's Robiskie himself set all the things you wanted to say we didn't completely downplayed everything and then Louis Riddick. When ideas began last night and he said this. The great look you wanna see you guys operate at a very high levels got to the things he thought he could do well when you draft and people thought that mr. Boesky could roll out. Change the launch point as far as where he throws the ball from inning to get it out of his hand fast. And he can get it there accurately we see a guy I've been able spurt left it is shoulders turn the line of scrimmage and then put it on the money. That's what you want that's what did it its North Carolina that's what he's doing here at Chicago. Doesn't have that his feet set. Again quick flick of the wrist here a three step drop quick slant put it where the receiver can catch it and then protect himself. Those kind of things that you wanna see I know you just mentioned it its first pre season game easy coverage is second in thirteen hours. But when you if the guy won out there was air mailed something donors that's going to be a key stakes we don't wanna give him credit but we would be ready to cross. Because going to start. This is gonna. Well again that was the plan but remember we heard that was looked like portals correct we heard that plan in Jacksonville that he's gonna redshirt when they pick him in the first round and high unemployment they played him. And they said the same thing about. Doctor rescue we're bringing Glavine and one and against make it 1415 million dollars to risky at thirteen starts in college so I thought was to set a lot of learn. But a bit the player is the one that can take care of that really in this situation it can be bold because of the eleven was playing great you know you wouldn't really be thinking about it right now there has to be. Two sides of that but. With two with as well as too risky it seems played in this game again we're out of practice to see what the coaches and everybody sees in practice. Start to move up up the ranks a little bit and then it starts to go down to okay. How's the team doing when do we start the clock ticking on this guy taken over the hard all but a lot of things that go into. Well to the exact point you made Louis Riddick while this game was going on treated every plan is a good plan until it isn't going to be as he is not sitting all year no way I think. May be the best case scenario is go out and plays well let's not discount that possibility defender he went to rate last night he threw a pick six on his third play and on the third series a snap went over his head back and that wasn't his fault obviously right we keep showing that. When we talk about glad I'm not playing well the snap was nowhere and out of nowhere near that was not his fault yet. We wanted to lump that in there at all all the bad with the basic the but the bottom line is he gets three drives and and that you know one of them. So that's why he wanted to break with a zero L quarterback grainy. But the reality of the situation is if the bears are not going to be. There's a lot of things working in the direction of playing too risky this year and one of them is job security. Like yesterday espn.com listed and look John Fox has been around the block and back in time so I'm not I'm not in any way suggesting he's doing something for his own job security. But the reality of it is. If this is that he and is not expected to compete for any threat this year if midway through the season. Michael and isn't setting the world on fire probably the best thing you can do if he seem as if he's not Christian Achtenberg and and your not. Afraid of putting him nearer to draw older you know war or do you put to get on the field let him play and if you showing signs of developing. Men that also doesn't do bad things for a coach's job security was our hot seat all of the great a lot a lot is going to be obviously as I said there's. More than just one thing here both the main thing is they get the feel comfortable putting the player on the field you brought a pack amber are brought a jerk off for obviously coaches. Didn't feel culpable about what these guys on the field. That has more to do with what they're seeing in practice and what they team pre season. But but here already again it's just week one. It certainly looks to be going in a positive direction as we saw last night for Robiskie so listen I agree with you a lot we'll have to do a collateral will have to do without the team is playing but. Drabinsky at least for last night and what this is what we do after a performance like as we said OK the clock may start chicken little early night. Where might get my three are asked every week park rented sport clips to picket MVP moment of the week sport clips you watch sports we cut hair it's perfect sport a sport clips. It's good to be a guy let's give it to Robiskie because as you say. All NFL debuts don't come you know the same. He gets thrown in there and a two minute drill into Hagar can't go out there and do this for the very first time at Soldier Field and see what happens and he handled the way he does. Again it doesn't mean it's gonna be a superstar does remain weak through above the pre season he won't look exactly like the you know on develop a rookie that he is. But for the moment let's give him MVP moment of the week brought you by sport clip completely agree again you watches throws they were accurate throws. They didn't he didn't a most of the time for the most party didn't Purdue's receivers in any kind of bad. I situations at all. And as I said about this on watch and I'll say the same thing which Robiskie and all the numbers look good the best thing about it is there's now a tape of him playing his first NFL game. I guarantee you made mistakes and that's that's what you concentrate we saw the good things but it's a little things that that the I have that the person who's not a coach doesn't see that they'll go over and that they'll fix it healed and he are already know examine the coaches. Ogle over them together and that's going to be the most important thing on. Yeah I really got his football Friday Mike and Mike and Mike Nolan junior here just three guys name like say on morning excel shirts. Again if you're just joining us a junior and I switched shirts after we made the observation actually senior guy earlier this week. Maybe observation with all the weight you've lost and that that the first thing people say to me now like he used to always be you know you're bigger than I thought he'd be a good look at I am you. Coming out over the years people dump it all always make some remark about due to me and write short vice Versa human nice lower Chan. A. You mean the second one of the third over one of those dealers that his party's developed my Graham posed his now. You lost weight it's like you depleted the sack below fraud. Now it's like a floppy desert why are you still here. Hi Brett. The I've lost track of what are good at everything that everyone commented to me and now is how much what you all right that's all I ever hear is oh my god I can't believe how much weight Cilic has lost. And we made the observation earlier this week you've gotten down to an excel which is my size we Wear the same side shirt. You hear. Who is anything but junior when it comes to size and eyewear the same type shirt so we switch shirt during a break I think we both look fabulous on rail where were where it well right now your farewell green gets a little. The idea and you took too much baggage but I mean much it's not like I'm wearing like a nice shirt it's close it's a reasonable looking sides it really shows off your pipe cleaners listen I get the shall sun's out guns out my friend and I can't in his defense that if you'd put that sure on when I got it brain and you might be our right foot stress that I blown out a little bit Alec I'm like excel plus a look at. I'm on the sex sells a little bit extra to it all right let's. Let's get to some football here not really wanna make sure we get to that Josh Rosen stuff possessed when Kevin looking forward to a week is is this them. Now the discussion about that but quickly obviously top headline today Mitchell Drabinsky controversial at the bears trade up a spot in the draft to take him number two. And does one night mean it was the right move obviously not but you could not get off to a better start than two billion couldn't say he did everything you're asking and and as many will say dollars against third stringers or whatever Brooke as as we talked about earlier he threw the ball poorly we were of rip them this morning access policies not ready put him on the bench he threw well. He and forgetting the throwing well he looked good roll right role and left to put the ball on the money that Mike was one of the most important things to me. Is a is poised and just being able to hang in the pocket and have command to come in at the end of the half. Minute 552 goal lead to a touchdown with thirteen seconds ago. I'll put together the string of completions that he did. He sure a lot of poise and a lot of command of the offense but I was really impressed with his accuracy he never really hung his receivers ought to drive at all. And you know what they count earn someone brought this up on Twitter this morning when I was doing first and last Jacobs is out there played against third stringers he's playing with them to. The guys are blocking for him and guys that are catching forehand or not guys that are at his level either or at that starting levels it's not like he's getting a ton of help from those spots either. But for me you mentioned situations that's a huge part of it that's a huge part of pre season is trying to see guys. In situations against different teams you can replicate those are practiced major two minute drills and all variations. Of time left of timeouts left to play on the field and you can replicate that in practice but there's still something to doing it in a place that's not scripted doing it placed. Where are not controlling all the variables and to see him be able to operate like that. In one of the most important scenarios in those two minute and a half and games scenarios is a huge feather in his cap. You know we always look at quarterbacks and other quarterback strong Kaiser for the Cleveland Browns he's a guy that. Look like he was rising up and then look like a rookie in the scrimmage and he played well last night throw the deep ball incredibly well but what goes along with it. Is that guy he's trying to beat out didn't do a whole lot now again Brock got Waller play against the starters and then it was Cody Kessler when and then Kaiser. But he looked good I mean when they get their chance to show they're showing so these rookies it to Shawn Watson. You know it will he have a chance to displaced Tom savage at some point. Nauert Robiskie threw himself and that conversation I know it's only one game Kaiser already kind of been in the in that that discussion. World won't happen is in Kansas City were what Holmes Alex Smith is going to start their so no that that's not going to change no matter how well ball's plays but these other three situations took some interesting turn well if you look at the. Four. There worked for quarterbacks in the first Robert Kaiser went sore right Jack and let's let's use the four of them. They're vastly different situations right my home goes to a Kansas City team that is a Super Bowl contender right and hasn't established quarterback. In Houston. Watson goes to 818 that is eight the Super Bowl contender without an established right quarterback. But beat the fact that he what everyone's estimation of him was he was the most ready to go and play I think he has a chance to go in and play I think. I don't think it's inconceivable he wins that job weakland that he is the starting quarterback when the season begins in Houston. I don't think that's inconceivable either I would would the Texans loved Tom's ever to play extremely well being that he has more years in the league and Watson and probably dispute absolutely that's what they would want but. I grew if you would it would not start Mir to Shawn Watson one match I don't admit. Doesn't make the decision would do jogger Hopkins came out come out the other day and essentially throw his hat behind Tom savage as he did and free dialects buy dot Yonder Hopkins has been one of the better receivers and we Buddhist suffered two quarterback held there in Houston. That to me is kind of telling them what Tom savage put together behind closed doors so far. I won in his thinking that additional Watson probably had the best chance to be on the field week one now that to mean looks like a senator work could be the opera was all these other situations were it's a lot. You're not getting those veteran returns out of the quote unquote veterans that are on your team trying to stave off these rookies were Tom savage seems to have secured some of that. There's all these performance is doing you noticed a big old security more reps right in the following week strike may be Kaiser and mr. Beers he. Give more one looks in game two of pre season so they can see them out there on tape again as defense maybe it's just in practice the way those reps did divvied up but they've earned that much out of this game down the situation in Chicago with Scott I'm done with your best key is. They brought in a guy to be the quarterback this year they're paying him starting quarterback money for this one year only. And you've made a huge investment into risky to your gonna do whatever you think best develops him if you think it's put him in soon he'll put him in Sunni think it's wait till the end the or not at all this year. I think the Smart thing to do with whatever you think is in the best interest of his development. That's job one this season over anything at first thing you're going to see there. The next step and Mike you know this is going to be in practice where we don't see he'll take reps from sentence. Or that that's what's going to happen is is that they feel more comparable to what they saw. We'll start to get more of those routes and albeit Mark Sanchez expense as he tries to go through more. The last picture starts to get super clear as the week's press on here receive those reps window and you start to understand who's going to be on the team and who's not. And that's going to become very very apparent there. You talked about it with the quarterbacks how much does I urge you guys bring it up before Ryan pace in John Fox they put out our list on dot com last night quarterback some hot right. John Fox's name is on porches on the hot coach on the hot yet John Fox's name is on there. Hue Jackson is not to hue Jackson gets to operate from a place right understand I've got time. Would have all the sudden things are going south John Fox has to make decisions in a hurry. There are necessarily in the best interest of law Earl runner up for this week's right what are going to save him his job and you're now by saying or that we got this kid out here now I need time. Those are things that have to be taken into consideration. Again fox is not have been 39 year old coaches a guy's been around the block but is also on his fourth coaching job and isn't going to get a fifth so it. Or third coaching job isn't gonna get a fourth I think it is. Right it was in Carolina and they was in Denver and Federer right I am so I mean I'll be active coaches sometimes do things in the best interest to keep their own jobs of course they do. And you can criticize that but then you would be being unrealistic everyone does that it is not a criticism but it just acknowledging that while those quarterback situations are similar they're driven by guys with agendas and places in their coaching career that are in a much different place you can expect the decision making a probably reflect that aren't let's roll on my in my presented by progressive insurance creators. Of an enterprise tool tourism range of coverage options and picked apprised. That works for you so Michael senior and junior here. I'm one of the big stories of this week certainly were the comments of Josh Rosen which it turns out or from an interview that he did several months ago just. Was posted by Bleacher Report this week. And he is the IM opinion did an amateur at the right word is young quarterback from UCLA with all the potential in the world and he's a guy who gotten. Trouble is the wrong word but certainly got a lot of attention he's got a hot coveted album and all kinds of are things that have gone on with him you also might be the first pick in the two after next year depending on how the season plays out. And he had some comments this past and that that were opposed to this past week in which most notably he said football and college don't really go together. And Michael Wood senior was put off I think to say man I don't put words in and out but that's where that be a good description of. All you know to let a bit off that line of of football and and academics and college don't mean you can't do bold. When there is a long litany of thousands of of people including an academic all American sitting in my left. Who did. Dubow including Josh Rosen who never said you can't do ball right so they don't go to gather that they don't win pushed the comparison that we got brought up a lot was people work full time jobs and go to college and I'm pretty sure if you ask those people do these things go together they'd probably say you know. But they probably say they would rather do what they can. My point is he never said you can't do this he said they don't go together well. But he never that you can't do it and that's what everyone seemed to wanna make it about which had a problem. I what was your problem because that's disingenuous and knocks off a good point who's going look at the body of that interview and tell me he wasn't knocked off a place that he was going. He was asked about talking about that some guys just really are caught out for college. And are brought their because of their ability and athletics. And many ass wait you mean some people are supposed to go on college that was the scent that was the sentiment of the next question. And what does the kid with a background of Josh Rosen who comes the not too dissimilar from ought to come from a background we come from a bit of money and are in a position where a lot of work you know I've got. A background and understanding the ability in the tools to use my academic career to the utmost potential that. What does a guy who's in that position whose party kind of seen as maybe a little bit elitist because that background say when he's asked that question wait some guys don't police don't belong in college how does he sound if he says yes to that question. Probably not very good and especially doesn't reflect very good his peers who -- clearly cares about based on the rest of these statements it's who he's out there advocating for all the rest of these statements so we did not property says the Internet can begin les blowback here. And we all attached to that one idea that these two things don't go together and we make don't can't. And go down a whole bag warms that is not appoint the senator what he was talk well. What we have we had agreed on and talking some of the things he said do some guys you know maybe don't wanna go to college I absolutely do some guys get pushed to review your class is absolutely. I mean we we've completely had to admit that. But I I still I still even the premise of of don't go together and I can't go together they have been. Mean they they have been for years I meet people have been able to do it and do well last I checked. You know a guy like Andrew Luck was an engineer major we've seen in my room roles of the world go along. For a scholar Rhodes scholars we've seen and and I'm done I'm picking just a couple what has happened over and over and over again so it can't be done. And can be done well. I understandable but just because things have been done over the course of a long period of time doesn't always mean during the right way to do things and his point was. His point awful event Alyssa I openly said he misspoke I heard Damien say the same thing would you guys probably could've chosen his words better and as a twenty year old kid is a good easy way to mark Allen Jamal Adams. You're very early on how low stakes environment the choosing your words right is okay but we Jamar Adams we're all cool comfortable saying you know he was trying to get that. You we don't seem to be willing to give Josh that benefit of the doubt I'm very curious as to why I think it's because it's something that kind of upsets the establishment will be no I. Listen I I I understand what you're saying but but even. I'm not saying he said they they can't do it he said you you you can't do it now camped out even how he meant that I disagree I guess that's my point so. I'm not taking it further than saying it can't be done. I'm saying the way he said that the intent he met I don't agree with I mean what's the better way what won't know the intent to imagine this is the way I took in taking an in context with the other answers. Which is you look at the intent behind that these things don't Mary up very well together already used himself as an example he's typical graduate three and a half years and pursue an MBA. But because of football and academics and you know Burke class as you can always take you got to move things around choices you have to make a choice yet it which is fine. That's an example he used he said it's typical for me and I'm a guy who has these plans for a rifle right. Look at some of my teammates were less equipped to handle that slowed academically look at what some of them are pushed into an hour. Do they work on the same schedule as meat but are not operating with the same tool bag. And all he asked is why can't schools do more to help some of those guys out why can't they take more active interest now. He doesn't have the answer he doesn't need to I am curious as to because listen we all went to Notre Dame we see that help. They offer you bear I'm saying that's not everywhere okay purported to meet the help it it's not everywhere but I mean what what is what is universal everywhere I mean that the intention is to help. And it can't as as as Nick Saban said. We take guys who maybe would struggle and report them in a position to if they can AFL they have a degree. You know will help them along the way now that's some of that certainly can be disingenuous I get it because they're helping them on the football field. But if they didn't have football where would they be so at least it's giving them a chance I'm not sure. Of everybody who is a green we're Josh Rosen what's your answer. Everybody you know over a 100% of all colleges do what the right waking me a break nothing happens you know in a vacuum that way. I understand nothing happens a vacuum that way but to ignore the beat the meat of the bell curve on this as we can bring up my role when he Andrew Luck and mean in all these guys but the individuals are out liars on this right the meat of the bell curve as a bunch of guys who probably are qualified to be where they are who don't want to be aren't equipped with what they are. Like think about that too like I came from background because you guys right understood and valued education right guys that are coming up just trying to make sure that their face they can take care of their family however it's possible so let me. Are you quickly what to answer to that I'm not saying you have to have an answer Josh wrote the twenty year old kid of course he doesn't have the answer pointing out a problem and saying something is wrong. Doesn't make in the bed I guess I'll ask him I mean what what what's the problem you get you guys OK maybe ours equipment they're getting scholarships are being poured in a position. I that they're getting and a lot of times this sometimes we use this against them. There skated toward putting easier classes and how does that help them on the back and then if you going America's the idea of a degree is great we're even seeing the debt not giving regular kids the returns on all without a doubt there are so many guys get a degree and do something completely else or whatever they learned they have to learn some completely new I agree with no more don't learn the process you're putting kids an easy classes and passing them through just so they can stay on the field which. I can't not coaches for an administration fundamentally there because they've got jobs and families defeat. You created an industry in college athletics with a multi billion dollar industry were all of these other people making money and have that real life steaks on the line. And just because you paid these student athletes and IOUs and ask them to accepted on the back and doesn't mean you can look the process in the middle and just say what or giving you this saying it's sort of a promise that something might happen when Ben we're not going to put the value in the meat of that process were belong but isn't there isn't there a irresponsibility. Of a student at some point as well perhaps there absolutely is one that responsibility also drop brought their because your skills at football you definitely want to play football right and so when all of your coaches and those people on double liner saying listen. Not a not so many words and you dealt with this in Philadelphia and I dealt with this to a certain extend when you appear to have outside interest and wanna put your time and effort of the plays that did not always receive right well right and so when you get those message from a coaching staff that the I came here to do the thing I love nothing my best skill set is and might be infringed upon because I want to also explored the second half of things how is that supposed to incentivized to do want to go out there and do those that micro micro presented by progressive insurance are guess in the shell Pennzoil performance on a really good discussion. What I would just add to it is. Might as senior in response to what you're saying what is the answer. What Mikey is pointing out here is. If you listen to everything that you just described how do you describe the situation accurately what do we actually have here we are making a business transaction. This is a business like agreement that is being made between a seventeen year old kid and a university but the actual benefit that is being received by the kid. With apologies to all of the people who graduate with a all of his debt I understand. That you don't want to hear this but the reality is the agreement that you're making it is by no means equitable to the kids they have no option you have no choice if you want to let any chance to play professional football in this country you have no choice but to sign a scholarship that's sort of yeah. And that's a that's why if what you what's the lesser of two evils here or not let them go to school because there aren't there skill set and and have them go easier classes say you know what. Can't go to school and our guard up. Well whatever you wanna do liberals are what those are the only two options what's the other what you are the other option is for the universities hold up their end of the bargain more big deal about 85 full ride scholarships to kids on football team. Out of the goodness of their heart right universities getting something I want her to her so I get I get so that just that's my point is when we talk about other people who say what normal students are getting this that the other university doesn't have an investment you John not making that university money. You missed it all the time no one's lining up and stadiums to go watch a ten lap and that's not a knock on member schools not giving things out of you -- the least they can do is make sure all right we've got this agreement were going to live up fully to it for you because if you don't live up to a fully under and his student athlete what do they do more often than not listen to find a way to get shot I and the kids and they can lab also by the we don't live with all of the restrictions that are placed on all of these varsity athletes which are. Which are numerous and in many case is ridiculous that don't all listen that's true or something that needs to be dealt with I get it. But I I guess the whole process to meet is. What's better I understand how tired I got better available right now brother could be better will look I. It is available I don't know I'm talking about the general of 88 student. Eight AA an athlete coming to college maybe not as well equipped as others as well equipped to view our Josh Rosenberg Andrew Luck summoned out of a quip as well Myron Rolle. But still the option to them is better than the alternative. I guess that support it doesn't mean. We can't try and fix some things and make them better. But still right now all we can do it's like the marijuana thing we all think marijuana should be legalized everywhere sold but the bottom line is it's still illegal and you can't get tested positive for so that doesn't mean we shouldn't be sitting here saying legal I don't know that the butt and that's why I'm so glad to adjust. Rosen is doing it I said that's all Josh Rosen did his point out say you know what and abet the thing about and why it resonated so well from his 'cause he wasn't talking about him. He was saying this the problem that some of my teammates do with guys and I'm sure he knows other place that are taking his good care of you academically as usually there are giving you the help that Notre Dame is but they don't really good job way right that he knows guys are doing that so I don't know why he's the bad guy for pouring out what a lot of us all the rest of us have just because he's inside the system now we generally don't tend to respond favorably to college athletes. Voicing strong opinions but just not gonna happen Sam Arnold and this is not a knock on him probably going to be inaudible quarterback right not to you know what that's Josh that's what he does that's not why I'm about I'm just here to play football and people love that right did people love the kid it's just a lineup he's gonna be appreciative of what he's got. And that's good enough for most people when John says you know what this could be a little bit better I'm not saying it's terrible now on the he came out said he was living in squalor NASA's. I don't know he did not get some of the points instead worker I I guess just his overview I I had an issue heartless pause on that thought I'd love to get back to it as we continue Mike and Mike again presented by. Progressive insurance or guests on the shelf until performance on. We'll go to a different topic coming up next as well would you'll join us Adrian will Jen are skiing Georgian house origin ocean house I still can't do it but.

Geico because saving 15% or more car insurance is always agree dancer. I'm told shaft is ready to go and I'm gonna give him the floor here's. Our NFL insider Adam show after what does. On the shell Pennzoil performance line with a little insight into something we should expect to hear today shifting what are you have. Welcome quarterback Mike and essentially we got beat David I think a lot of people have expected all summer long. Wait before also Malone and exit date that the NFL. Is likely to rule on UT QLA investigation that'd been conducting for over a year. Now this is compact and what's so many different times so I wanna protect despite sitting. Serious informed and educated speculation. But it he's just that it is not actual reporting of action is giving you do the stuff that I've been able to pick up. This week over the last month or Portugal last year. Again we think unifil doable today. We think he's gonna be suspended. We think it's gonna be I think more severe. Than people think and the reason I say that is because here is the whole issue. The question becomes how is the week which can frame. The violation here is looking at OGQ only current domestic violent violent offender is finished. It says that it that effect. You were looking at a six game suspension. That's what that the that the violence policy carries. And it. By all accounts. That is what they've been illegal all of you remember Jerry Jones say there's no evidence of any domestic violence in this investigation and in this report. And that's where it gets interesting and gets back to the question of who each want to bring them. The results of its investigation. Has to count enough to think it is a domestic violence. If you hear the critics and you're looking its exchange now if they decide to go and program. And they start to say. Particularly in my personal conduct policy or eight accumulation of the zebra would be very clear. The league has as fact considered. All the events that have taken place. Over the last year don't be confused by anything else it's so when I say that I mean any. Or consider these and by the way and I think they're important have been reported. We're talking about the woman on Saint Patrick's Day report that are sure talking about being short and missed me eating. We're talking about a literal belief is found. The when he could describe to say OK you know what I'd and I promoting it you know we don't have enough evidence for domestic boat but there's enough here. Personal conduct to see you could get you for two games to work its order Italy disturbance. If two week. Effect that domestic violence past. Nobody's as well the outcome was injury Jones utility. It's going to. Pulpit of for being too. To what do what do putative. Right it could here's the problem. The league had a chance on domestic violence with Ray Rice and didn't get. The league get a chance on Josh Brown on domestic violence. And didn't get it right. It's suspended one game and then a couple months later he journal surfaced. Where there's actual documentation about abusive relationship. So don't think it's wrong. And the league doesn't have enough evidence. And I don't know what they do and don't have I don't think that it. With key accuser. On multiple occasions. Okay so again there's to be old very shots but it stay error to the side of caution. Do you think anybody in Dallas Cowboys can be upset about that. Because they haven't done that in the past with previous domestic bounced Kasich. Spoke to pull it together here. The bottom line is that we think there's going to be a ruling today which it is going to be a suspension. And it becomes a question of how league decides to frame. It's its domestic violence. Totally black and white it's six games. Italy decide to go a different route to personal conduct. It to be anywhere from one to six games we don't know how. And it delete this particular domestic violence route. We may be looking at April long story. Because I'm short but you do Eliot Jerry Jones. Nearly moved to Dallas Cowboys Adobe perhaps that would just because they don't believe. In reading the investigation that the league is done for every year. That is enough in there to convict. Particularly for crime he'd never been charged or arrested for. Okay entity anymore here. The point oh the history of the article to that balance this investigation started when Nico Kelly was called into but it felt a burst out west amber. Let September. Then next time he's cold and in December. 3 months later. And the only thing that really changed in that time while there's other teams I don't I don't know Ito is back in August. It Josh Brown incident surfaced between that time in October. And it would increasing criticism for all involved again. So again reading between the lines just written between arts. The easy Kelly case there is purse didn't. But here. And that might match but maybe it or. To Garnett much more serious but I think at that point aren't and it continued we don't want the point where did secretly people. Delayed turn over evidence which delete this case and do we want it short it's right and urea to date finally. What is the weapons we believe this in the ruling and really meet key question becomes how did we want afraid. And so I'll say that adds. Rid of that this is surprising it's only surprising to me in the sense that this is not I think what we've been led to a right exactly for the weeks and months leading up to this thing but the last couple of days you started to get the singling and there's atoms chapter. With the very latest telling you expected per potentially champion how we characterize that we expected today we we we we we know will be today. But I know I don't know I don't know because I I've I mean I don't I only speak to date but you know I believe it was this goal law. I believe once we get expert too late to be Thursday or Friday what an aerospace equipment Asian we did tonight. We think it'll be today our Jacqui thanks a million things that are related there that's at a shelter whether this. Again and the shelter until performance line might in my presented by shell Pinto get instant gold status at jail to the fuel rewards program now would annual awards dot com slash gold. Again if they do decide to characterize this to classified if you will as a domestic violence incident and then the policy says excuse well again the policy says it six games but there is leeway to make it Baltimore if it's egregious or less. If they feel they deserve less than we have seen that part of it fell while it says six as the headline. It can be less or more depend. Yeah our friend Adrian orchard house he has made easily into our studio as there's a ton of basketball to discuss please tell me I got it right. It's absolutely that was I think you I've struggled with this as you have and I'm working very hard at it but won't do is drop in arms left and right all over the place so let's bring to basketball into what been a very busy football conversation in the start with the easy part and that the Carmelo Anthony conversations where are we right now. While New York in Houston re engaged cheer in the last few days. And started to talk again about ways to do a deal and they need a third team. There's no straight and one on one deal that. At least New York's willing to do that they don't want to take on Ryan Anderson sixty million dollars and three years that's the easy. Deal from Houston's pointed Yuba. New York's I do when that deal they need other they need another team maybe two other teams potentially. Good right now Carmelo is only waving that no trade for Houston for now and so New York it paused that conversation with Scott Perry got hired as GM in July. Tried to get a conversational Carmelo about how comfortable he might be. With coming back to the team in many clearly let's get a trade and so so that's who they are now and they have six we still training camp that deceit that could find a find an avenue how how. How much how much it is a putting handcuffs on the next four Carmelo just saying Houston I mean. Where where is the line of them saying Melissa and were were just. We can't do Virginia to go feel you're gonna have to open up your options for and that's what they want they want him to open up those options and the team to watch in there. Is Portland because. This has become very much of a recruiting. League it's almost like a modern. It's almost like a modern day EU travel basketball model where. You know James Hart and played a role in convincing Chris Paul a big role and commits in crisp Polycom if you complain. And so right now you have dame Willard and CJ McCollum who's that tremendous backcourt in Portland. They've they've made progress. I'm told with Carmelo Anthony and peeking his interest on that blazers team so if the blazers were able to come up with a deal package that. Worked for New York. Then. He gives our most something to think about again they've. They've made inroads with him I'm told and CJ is in New York right now plane we saw some video yesterday implant pick up with right. With Melo and think about that team in Portland if they do a deal that they could do a deal for Melo would my column little heard. Use of their kitchen played just tremendous basketball for them the young senator. Down the stretch and you put Carmel on that team if they can piece the other deal that didn't mean with with the rest of their team picks. That for that top four outside of Golden State stacks up pretty well almost anybody in the life. You know. How motivated is Carmel I understand how motivated and Pixar to move on from him it makes all the sense in the world. How motivated is Carmelo to get out of their regular said to Mike earlier this morning if they wait him out and he's right now only giving the accused as an option. At some point. What needs to say to him you do realize what you're signing up for is another year of this that you may could be delighted that fellas gone but your team is still going to be bad. You're still wasting one remains. Of some semblance of your prime and a situation where you have no chance to win. How motivated you think he ultimately will be to get out. Well that's what the knicks are curious to find out is that once they get in the camp. Star playing in the sea where the team is that. You know. Phil Jackson spent. Are the better part of a year trying to run from allow waived the no trade publicly embarrass him at times. And so it took Carmel a long time to get to a point where he said all right I'm willing to waive the no trade lead the next and then all of a sudden a new regime takes over and they say well. They were open having you back. He wasn't ready to go back on them but he's always low played in New York he's lived through the losing. And I I think for the knicks the one thing that I know they told Carmelo is. When you come back here you're not when you hear that from us anymore Scot pare their new GM. It has essentially told Carmelo I'm not going to impair shall not gonna call you on the media that's not going to happen anymore we're gonna make it comfortable. For as long as your here and the knicks are trying in good faith to honor. His request on the trade because they know they're the ones who started it and they're the ones who pushed for and they gave him the no trade clause I know. There's a school of thought at least holding impossible that's why a player gets a no trade clause to have control over that. Bill Jackson the wanna give it to you didn't have to and so. But I but I think the knicks wanna see. Once he gets the camp if if he does wanna move on and they can't get a deal with Houston and again it's a very difficult pathway with Houston. Does he start to open up and put more teams on in Portland is a team at the top of that because he looks at. My column will alert and says hey that that's about as good as a tandem outside of among the team did just that to me a Saudi he's an appearance. If he doesn't open up his options and could that be leverage on his part. For the next to buy and how well they will they think about doing that at all. They've resisted that for the beginning that's a lot of what. When it came to head with Phil Jackson. Was organization he wanted to just buying right and the only organizations and I absolutely not mean it's 54 million dollars over two years. That there's no appetite right now in New York to do it can always change money is never an object with would Dolan and it never has been. He's waste a lot of it spent a lot of it but. Their feeling is we are going to get out for him we're gonna get something we'll see how realistic the knicks are. You know. A realistic knicks are in terms of what they can get for him and he has it for everybody where Melo was in his career 33 in such a big number let let's say hypothetically Portland does not deal for him. There he cost them and luxury tax to pay a hundred million dollar luxury tax bill on the in his second season as the Paul Allen will pay that. Because if it's usually good and committed Paul Allen will spend that money but that contract isn't for everybody. Mike Mike in woes hit our studio Asian or announced he'd. I'm and that brings us then to something that you were talking about last night on television that I I don't think most of our fans are aware of as as we ponder. The trade demand slash request made by Carrie Irving in Cleveland. That there is a date looming in December that might actually change the paradigm a little bit so maybe don't expect to seek Harry built in these next couple of weeks explain that. Well one option. For Cleveland is the way December 15. Players who signed free agent deals this summer become eligible to be traded so. Let's say hypothetically. Minnesota one at the involved Jeff Teague signed a free agent deal this summer they can't trade him till December 15 and you go through the legal to rosters who signed this summer. So that the summer fifteen date. Potentially opens up a lot. This more possible deals for them to do not today wanna wait that long I think it was that they would prefer to do this before training camp. But there's a lot of pressure and likely an organization to get maximum value for him because he's the one NASA now it's set them up. Let's let's be asked post LeBron LeBron leaves in free agency they get nothing Kevin Love doesn't nearly have the value he had when he walked in the door there. Harry is the one they have to get a return on they can't do a bad deal for him. Is this turned into more than maybe high react again were all just speculating to sky re just wanted to be the man somewhere what what's the reasoning is part of the reasoning though. Now we hear that Dave McManaman is talk of him going for days without talking to to his teammates. During the playoffs. Is it turns sour with relationships do we think of that team. I think that. This is more about in from the beginning at spend with Tyree was getting control. Of his future his career and not being at the mercy able bronze gonna do. At the end of 2000 the and its 1718 season that if LeBron leaves. And leaves him behind with a team that he just doesn't fit the pieces don't fit around him. That. He wants to have a voice and where he goes from here and that was a big part of this trade request that more as much as. Yes he'd like to have a team built around there's no question that's part of it. But. If you looked at through the years everyone has had to react to what LeBron did had to react in Cleveland the first time Miami leaving there this is a player saying I'm getting out. And of this thing. Which makes sense it's it's actually of all the different things that are happening that the one that makes sense so there where I'm reading what you're saying is. They're looking to make a move involving carry that will not necessarily be. To try and win one more championship in the early in the year left they have with LeBron but a bigger picture move that will set them up for a post LeBron world. So where does the confident of that because he's going to be 33 when we come out on the other side of this thing and I understand that he's in the greatest shape of anyone ever in the and it Tom Brady is forty and everything else but every read as a when it title is another year he doesn't win a title but where does he stand at all well. This is by LeBron not being committed. To coming back in Cleveland might not telling them hey I'm in a Kevin Durant was on a one year deal and Golden State they knew it was coming back in it they planned accordingly. By LeBron not giving them direction yet I'm and it's his right to free agent he can. He can waited out. Cleveland has the move with the idea we we just don't know he's going to be here they are not going to do a deal that is. All win this year veterans big contracts they need a really good younger piece that may not help them this year. They'd like to give both for now and for the future that may not be realistic but I think if they had. I know that they have to they're looking at this with a longer view that does not help LeBron James this last season but without a commitment from him how Waltz to the proceed. We all get worked up now blow with LeBron and I'm coming home. More going home or whatever news art whatever that hole and well I owned LA area. I don't know look good to me that telling part is. That organization is acting as if they're very unsure whether he saying and they are not going to just load up to convince him to stay. And put a team out there that that straps them financially if he walks out the door. That's not been their intentions so far entry talks and told all right we'll see what happens again will happen in the next few weeks will it take into December. All those things are still the common you know that he'll have a dear to the ground force Adrian more to announce he. There's always a pleasure great work thank you say that's good to see as a road for this Mike in my presented by progressive insurance. Our guests appear on the shell Pennzoil performance on what it Michael Collins in for the PGA coming up but right now it is time for better or for worse for the time for another edition I'm. This is five more shots and my skin might. Ask. Kilometer shot we were just brought to abide Granger is also always brought to you by Bubba who is backward this year and collector stopped and above a little boost and you did earlier this morning a few things to do and had a good chat Bubba seem he seemed revved up he's excited about today's love to show that he's got. Props forest and I oil hubs. Doing great back on the board again for some reason. Talking about a well you seem excited about that. Yeah I mean it's always great to wake up again in three and you know sometimes it's good to go back to your roots don't you think Bubba. That's fair nor can our brother's got a variety of headlines and he we will decide every love them or shove them by about let's get. Of Dauman took Leonard four net and Christian McCaffery McCaffery well the best rookie season lover show. Com got it. You shot but I got to I think going to be between gallery cooker McCaffery. We'll see how he how he Jews when when cam is. Quarterbacking. I would probably moving toward Galvin cook I really like. What he does we'll see if the shoulder injury comes back to haunt at all but which drew the running scheme they have a Minnesota his ability catch a ball out of the backfield. I I look for him. And before and it's gonna be really that. More that runner than catching a ball out of the backfield and gab and I think they're getting different ball got you don't and but you know it has to happen. An old line has to block form. It's not very good offensive line in Jacksonville so I'm I were of those three hour leaned down and and that they've got a questionable quarterback situation they have. If these guys got to come together they should have a good defense they have a ton of players on that defense some of whom have been hurt you I think for an that is gonna get the ball Lochte is and has nothing to do with your offensive linemen running the ball you average a little underdog -- shouldn't it could ask your quarterback not to make huge mistakes he's gonna try and run it until you are handled the 89 in the box and say we're gonna stop for an act as a quarterback camp passed the ball well Howard measuring the best rookie season if you're asking me who was going to have the most yards from scrimmage. My prediction is that of those three McCaffery will be third. The that he will be he will be third on the list of those three as far as who will have the most yards from scrimmage this season. Yeah I'm because you do have yeah obviously another running back in Carolina you know along with McCaffrey and in four and that's going to be the guy but the I'm dot I'm Alina govern Coke would what you can do any opportunities that he's gonna get me to his my priest my pick for rookie of the years that we both shove it probably next both carrier ring and Carmelo Anthony will start next season with their current teams while orders of. I'm gonna a shot at a feminist I mean. The boards I'm glad that he came in here any clear that December 15 think Yahoo! what quality is an interesting little side bar. It isn't as definitive as I thought it rose one I was reading about it this morning he is talking about it on TV last night I didn't see I read it. And now that I hear him tell it. While it it it really only applies to players who signed this summer if they're motivated to move famine and I think they are they will so I believe he'll be dealt. I go Carmelo 5050 and Carrie I believe will be gone so yeah we'll stay sharp word both makes me shudder to think that both are going to be. With start the season with their current teams sell Iowa Iowa shot that is well Bubba Mac. The Dodgers will not lose another series this season and never lost one since early June lover shot I have to shut down I just don't think that pace can stay they're gonna wrap things up. Tomorrow per. Go the way it's going right now so all I absolutely don't see I don't think there's a lot of Modi you tell me do you think there's a lot of motivation and try to break the all time wins record. The Seattle Mariners who didn't win anything that year. 116. Games. Which is the record for most wins in the regular season the mighty yankees 114 and and they won the World Series right in on basketball the warriors went after that record the do you think the Dodgers go after that is that of any consequence to them I've got to believe the answer they know 87 now so. We did the math yesterday admitted the math yet what it would take a native 37 wins I got one last night's going to be 36 or less than twelve I think you have to go the rest of the well. However the only reason that they they sort of keep the pedal I don't know there's motivation for that or I've the motivation should obviously be let's set ourselves ought to be a position where in the world like you think most people knew that the Mariners had a record about a because they didn't and it would their World Series I think it's lost like this 72 wins at the bulls had in 1990 that people knew that number that's that that's a number anybody near enemy many people who Americana and neither shall they were both get a shot at the Dodgers. We'll definitely lose at least one more series. The rest of the year Bubba with love it or shot at next living down bell is hurting himself with the whole though the other shows that the GM of four Pittsburgh said listen this. His money in year out because he can't get anymore than that there's no. Monetary value to this holdout. He's not getting fired because he hasn't signed the deal so technically he's not under contract. He can't do a different deal the absolute. Most he can play for is twelve point one million for this year that fit. So they don't and he's not doing is he's not at camp so the thought is is he hurting himself by not being at camp. Listen he's a guy that could step in and play well right away he doesn't need to get all the hits you get in camp even though you couldn't you could certainly. You know dictate how much that happens. My biggest worry at all my biggest worry is when you're not playing football in football pads into football plays you're not getting in football shape. And you have the possibility. Of all said that hamstring that quads some muscle strain when you come back so all. That is always been my biggest fear that is a monster fear for running back. On August 11 I'm not worried about it ominously shot at. Big givers got the point that you just made if he doesn't go in the gilded Easter deciding this himself he'll decide when he feels like OPEC. Thought if he does it with like at least two or three weeks to get himself into that football shape I think will wind up having been completely irrelevant. If he decides to take this all the way to the end to try and make a point or just because he doesn't feel like going in at that one head start learning about awful habit I'm not worried about it now dog coward about it now that question is right now but. I was hurting them over the sold out right now also a shove audio is not a lot of New Year's right now and a bubble one more. Misery Bristol to use nicknames on jerseys of players weekend eleven version of what's not to allow above loving hours they were doing more I adore that chance I want to marry yet. The little march. I want I want to live with a for the rest of my life all children whether it all right I mean it's it's how could you not do this and there are 58 players at the sported decided not to do. As for those who don't know we're talking about there's a date at the end of the month I think it's the 25 or whatever it is. That all of the players in baseball have the option. Of just putting nicknames on the back of their jerseys whenever they want in the can be creative and fun and whatever it is. God we should have fun in this game I had no problem I have problems 58 maybe don't have nicknames maybe a ticket you know anything on there nobody babies don't feel like I think he jerseys you tell me Brett Gardner's putting Gardiner on there which is of course just his last name. Now the Yankees don't ever have names on the injures right so. That's adding something body I mean you could put a nickname can protect kids naming could put anything you want on there. For for the guys are just putting on names on does that kind of killed joy. It is not kill the fun this thing out not at all. You don't wanna put something on the what would you what if they'd like you put my name and backing agers doing under way what are my what are my putting out there I know you put green yeah you're just gonna go now but what legitimate you couldn't put any that you could have put you know. Love you Chris. You gonna put he hate me you're gonna put just standing there and that letter written directly doll would not. They're viewers playing I would have I would have paid view. However my short of taking you to do a billion dollars to just put on hash tag just standing there are. That's not funny too yes that are not laughing at all would be funny. I think it's a great idea if there are some doesn't want to care I have an issue that I've been an issue of them not want to do. That's above British governor tried to regrow injured amount of the job Granger got your back Granger for the ones who get it done and that was public get nicked up a bit big all right on Bob's sure they'll let me know if you wanted to reassure slit her OK not that doubting and these are all up this room now I thought they were props did what accepting your office this morning or did you say your props.

Well grain or halfway through another baseball season and were re releasing some players who stand out as winners like business travelers who win business by staying liking to end in sweeps that because you can import your liking their returns loyalty points to work on the spot with instant free nights this drive up with no reservation at instantly redeem points for a free night that same night simply by using electing to actually hitting a Grand Slam with a net instead of a bat well played better when a business by learning more about instant free nights and check out this summer rates at LQ dot job. Here's some of that Twitter reaction Brian treat at least baseball's allowing players to have a little fun are you watching NFL. You know that's not really fair this this idea may have come from the NFL's idea member last year they had some specific time yet set aside where they can Wear whatever cleats they wanted and everything else. They've had to be strict I don't I don't. Are they sometimes the uniformed police to and it'll do great it may be. But I understand you can't just let players put whatever whatever they want on their jerseys or their cleats or whatever it is all the time I understand that. Because. They don't start selling advertising on it which they were camped out with the business. And he may be more directly. Something that one person supports may be something that another you know you're not putting the name of the charity in the name of something that you believe in up New York is now all of a sudden. They're creating a conversation where it doesn't belong you are it gets tough because if you open that door you know if you try give an inch people are gonna take a fort and then they're gonna take a yard and then they're gonna take more salt. It gets difficult to do I get that there's also a lot of reaction through the 1800flowers.com. Twitter feed. To a lot of the NFL discussion that we were having earlier this morning and and most of it is about Mitchell Robiskie and eve. Bears fans are doing exactly what they shouldn't but they short chose to say. You know if you know any of our football you know that how well he played last night only means a tiny little bit. But rejoice in it why not because if you looked awful yesterday that it then you would be getting up this morning and you'd be screaming fire Ryan pays fire the coach get rid of everybody Lloyd this guy's day word were buried. Now all glad Anne's got the long term answer we don't have our long term answer at this guy's awful absolutely. So wild. Don't think you have the savior or just yet and that you know you'll you'll finally have a a Pro Bowl quarterback since Jim McMahon your first wanted Jim McMahon. Pull the reins on that but man I tell you it was it was a really. It was a nice start I really really thought he played well and as I said. The next move wool will come behind the scenes of practice work Borger not allowed to be. He'll start to take some reps at some point for Mark Sanchez and and it'll go from there. And though just expose him to a little more a little more in a little more I believe that he will be the starting quarterback of the bears at some point this year. I believed to Shawn Watson may very well be the starting quarterback of the Houston Texans we want I think there's a real chance of that. It is no chance of that which Robiskie I think there's no chance today are too risky Kaiser's going to be an interesting morning Cleveland because nobody is really grabbed hold of that the expectations are gonna sic the expectations are lower Clinton but the lord Chicago right so I mean we're sit their talking about the only difference of the two is. Chicago supposedly got a bridge quarterback that the expectation was going there was going to be there. Andy was highly capable. Of of handling that bridge job and maybe more 'cause he knows the writing on the wall he knows he's basically auditioning. For another year to maybe shorter now for another team because tradition he's going to be the guy here. But but other than that that's that's both teams are not expected to do well go to charm Kaiser start to order to realize how okay. No yeah it's not like he had all the experience in the world either. You know plane in college so but it too risky started it would it would be like oh my god you know this is unbelievable and unfortunately. It would be a little more held against. Cornerback the other one that is of interest to me and we're we're we're gonna have Kenny Chesney here just a couple of minutes and we'll talk to him about this this he'll be particularly interested. Here's the situation in New England Jamaica Rob Lowe is phenomenal last night and everything we've seen from a Rob Lowe when he does have a very small but legitimate. Sample of of regular season games it's not just pre season games. With core problem because he started last year before he got hurt when Brady was suspended. Grapple looks phenomenal again yesterday. And they're gonna have a fascinating. I guess it's a good problem to have but they're gonna have is some fascinating decisions to make. In New England if Brady continues to look like he's just going on because. Grapple it was not a guy that bill wants to lose I I believe he believes he is the future of the franchise so do you franchise tag him next off season. Which would leave you with a unique situation. Having a guy making a lot more money as your backup quarterback and you're starting quarterback. But I think it would make sense I think that would be the sensible move. It's gonna get interest and put as long as Brady's playing well Brady's gonna play that that's my opinion I know I know bill has his cut bait early on guys but that's not gonna happen at the most important position that the guys playing near the I'm an agreement with you so is this why you two more seasons from now. We're talking about Brady at forty true or two year's runner. So you got this year and then if you Jews and tied a franchise tag around blow again the franchise tag for quarterback is a huge number that's the only way you'll keep them because if you try and offer my contracts somebody will offer made a big contract it right and did that normally will not do. I mean they normally don't size mob signed my contracts anyway. They are not gonna do it to the backup quarterback like that so it would have to be a franchise tag so it's going to be twenty some million dollar in my self serving note on that game but it's not about me. This is about this kid Austin Carr who. Was they walk on at northwestern and and I mean the ultimate walk on he wasn't a preferred walk on no one invited him he was a student who knocked on the coaches George I'd like to try out for the football team. Made himself into the Big Ten receiver of the year last year. Split doubly was up went undrafted but it's not an expert bill pretty small. But I could never dropped the pass in his entire life he had a blue I get five catches last night including a gorgeous catch. Of a touchdown pass garrote blow is going to be not only is gonna make that team he is gonna making eight I mean I'm car car. Is not just gonna make the the patriots he's gonna make a huge contribution on that team Marci I warnings reality as time will tell mental. What do you what do you pupil in Austin Carr just telling you ya again awful of one pre season and your what they can play every snap he ever played in college I watch a lot of gives you every good play dollars that end up not doing as much in the pros will CIA's total us. I did a medical ball game in my Saudi these days in nice kid and a good player but. I'm gonna pull the reins on making him a bust in the hall of fame to Charlotte. We are we can better than ever Mike in my presented by progressive insurance are guess on the shell Pennzoil performance line except for the ones who were good enough. To make their way to our studio wanted delighted as anytime we have a chance. To welcome the superstar Kenny Chesney who. It is in town he's playing at Mohegan Sun again tonight and he's being honored at the walk of fame at Mohegan Sun. Today at 4 o'clock in the afternoon Kenny Sosa great to see how you've been having him back have been great. Really good idea Sarah off the bat forget you know the entertainer and and and all that we we me my wife and and Jake and and now my son Jake and his wife Jenny. Went to see Kenny in the game last night and so we got to hang out little bit talk it's always great. Rebel we go wanted to the vibrant marketplace you had to hang out the vibrant divide replaced hang our own today and I out. And you know it's it's like you know is in their not only some drinks which is wonderful. Candy. Full size. Candy bars pull slot. Not the little miniature idea of you know I don't I don't I don't know that in our I would notice though I remember last time I saw they were the smaller ones this time. Just like I give out on Halloween and that's why one of the popular house is on Halloween we throughout full size candy bars so that was very that you did he leveled all I have a monster kit Kat bar to Jerome I was more than double supersize users that I had Dassault. Forgetting all the entertaining itself that was part of the best part of an organized the process not last night outside the gears are heading though is that it shows have people actually start coming out but almost all also you have a bunch of pictures and they are awarded the picture's great viewers when we first met candy yes I was at that the White House when where were George Bush ruined what was of board that was that was for the Little League though Little League Baseball they do T ball on the lawn green IQ were were invited there to call the game and then they had a dinner that night. And then you you were at the dinner obviously menu you entertained us all as well and I remember being very. Nervous because your where there in the Rose Garden I was. Of their thing in my guys and I count on the law wanted to get up and singled me got. As I said no you can't do that you know and so we'll loses big thing. But he actually got up and saying but I remember being really nervous because my. The guy that I love as a kid growing up in and the reason I played second base who live in in high school was Joseph Morgan. And I'll I sold Joseph Morgan walk in from my left and I was I was a nervous more even more nervous and and and and playing in front of right no president I saw Joseph Morgan their house while on this was a real. The other day was a T ball game on the law right we're running the announcers are you saying. Are you practicing to get the ball game where you send the star spangled banner I can't actually found and then there was a dinner that night it was I celebration of baseball. And at it which and after which you performed at the Rose Garden but like everyone who was anyone in the game of baseball and us now their heart and us out exactly and it was so that was a that's one of my favorite memories in all honesty of all the years that we've been do and as was that alcoholic beer holder Andre. Great in it you know why then did it just goes to show you. You know you will love sports and love music. Find a way. To meet each other like out there is no way that that that I would have met Mike Greenberg in my goal with out my level sports and music in my life you know so. For that you know as it's a relief it was great and that that was actually Chris wasn't are your wife was or Stacy and Jake. Came that went ice that was Stacey at the dinner I had the makings that we wouldn't it or not not you don't know how it went right I sat with Ryan Sandberg. Goal it set with with Hank Paulson I Zenawi was still another cruise had a pretty good job titles are the treasury. And and let alone anybody dial plus I've told us that he got to got to fend for me like I guess this is like I'm sitting with Kenny and housing a city with rimes separated bella says I have no idea who. Would merely a fair enough. Anyway let's get to visit your good a million different things. I wanna how often this happens you know our our producer drew Brooks is gonna see your show tonight a penny was grilling goalie before the show on what songs you did. Because this two in particular that he wants to hear so I'm guessing that it would whoever's up as wide a portfolio as you have now for many years as you've been doing this. Do you decide I've always wondered about this hating aside you play how many songs in an average show when he. 2424. You you you put out and you could be choosing from 7080 probably at least write that would be immediately identifiable with the how do you decide which went to you know play there are. There's about eighty. Percent of the show that. On any. Given toward that will stay the same you know we have our club we have a lot of stuff polite Schiller things written two Eagles songs. So those kind of day but there's a there there we have about 45 songs that we can. The win for awhile. So if the producer has any requests tonight we. I could throw them because I was retired flag and I started player yeah about the night OK when that little boy will probably doubtful sounds like the night but it it's different we would like to keep it. The little flexible. You know what we don't. Change it up too much because when I was a kid when Howard went out to go to shows and even as an adult while we go to shows. Our I hated going to concerts where I didn't hear the songs are really wanted to hear. You know what I'm not one of those guys or go play a bunch of album cuts to tackle to show the audience something different. In I I I know they can be chosen by the tickets about a shirts and whatever. Buckles they wanna hear what day you've heard what they went along with a in the shower or in the car or. Whatever it is that they looked lifeless. And so we we stick to those. Do you still hear sometimes for people of all of according to plaintiffs are a bit I favors quite Nazi good stuff I mean anybody that's an example yeah so yeah all the time that. You got all these songs you try to get them in them and thank god but. You know there's always somebody going you know I came all this lady here that all that's all he did last half how you gonna fly off you know Larry I act to get it. But you know you can keep your demo ahead and listen I don't loves to play the good stuff all got out. The visual part of it also is interesting and completely on related and and by the way Kenny Chesney is our guest here in our studios if you needed to be told. I was at a at a meet that they had recently and they're doing these now more often I saw one for David Boeing won The Rolling Stones there is a museum. Display its is more than a display check out our huge thing about Pink Floyd it's their entire journey it's in London I was there on vacation is from the B get it literally it takes you through their entire career from the beginning. I'll do the the present day and it's got everything from like videos of them when they were all kids through their huge concerts and everything. And and I think a lot of people credit them with really starting a lot of the visual experience up there just yet these concerts. Which is a long winded way of setting up that's a big part of what you're doing right and you're not just get up there. Like the old days and just get up their plane a bunch of songs in rocky at the B visual experience edit and huge concert is a huge part of what you're doing. Well it is especially in the stadium environment you know and I I contradict myself a lot because I love for the songs and the music. Salute to come first that's what they actually come to see but I also love really putting on a show and and the visual part of that you eat healthy people to be really surprised at how much time we been. On the visual part of because if you let the music lead in use in in in and that's great but you can wrap it around this visual stuff. At its statistics that show a lot better in off the map in makes the experience better. And bigger right they they are credited for a lot of that and we spent a lot of time in in preparation of going on the road. On the visual part. Your stadium experience is incredible I I've seen in a few states including Soldier Field and and we're going to be in a couple of weeks and at Gillette and Foxboro it is. So much different than an arena experience they obviously with the number of people size and what you can do. Odd as well. When you get in and and you really when you really get going in a concert really gated. Do you ever add songs to other add to it all the time yeah yup locals every night's different and every shows differently just out he'll say okay let's throw this and there are. Any do you get you know what what's that week as we call on the southeast or east you. You start to fill the holy spirit that there. Is people hope and you just don't wanna stop it almost becomes. This moment that it and it's the cell that keeps growing growing and growing and you don't want that night in. So yeah what is you know I got this one button on stage rocket hit the button and nobody can hear me pick up the band. In Aachen okay we're gonna add this world or takeaways this or in federal or roll really hot bath I don't want to. Back at it cup itself back up. It can be whatever you know some of those showed a lot of not to hit that button and go okay we're gonna have this at this ad this. And they're going to him rehearse that and six months ago whatever now we just do it but that happens. All the time that that fascinates me Mike and I were broken presented by progressive insurance are guess. On the shell Pennzoil performance on an ordered those Kenny knows he's a great sports fans who will definitely get some sports. But this is of more interest to me. But god got a hot hot hot hot. So I got up -- got up and sing a song with Darius Rucker on stage that yeah yeah that go what. I am I saying Eagles take it easy OPEC is that I that I I I wanna bet he wanted to from Darren. And what. Of having the two things that impressed me the most about that one were how well he sang and he's a good goalie he's genuinely gracious I don't wanna do John Mason who plays bass and the bad ass here for a city you're gonna sing at a GIS who the hell is she. He's a player and also opponents say you know editors bad play louder up but that's the point. Does that carry is I heard the whole story. That there isn't a bad they would get that they didn't practice there was no rehearsal. They had to practice that saw it's a well known songs like guess all of them kind of in their head know how to play at it but they did that that sort of like when I was a kid I played the trumpet which sheet music in front of a cement you can argue with that. You guys are so good that if we just basically said do you go up there and play a song that all of you know which you've never practicing like if you could basically do it right you can get from alligator point agree. Yes in the wee wee hasn't you know some hills and valleys to get there but. Yeah and if you said you don't play a song we that we especially if it's all we've all heard and our heads over the years we would kind of have a the framework to get through it. Naturally I want to go to the Eagles to be a band I'm just guessing you would have liked a mental note out yet solely your thoughts on an eagle so well what like along that way Derry said those guys he actually went when he's I was allowed to sing any song except his heated migrated to put your views on. This dog so. So I'd say I came up with that because I wanted to pick one that would go to high to low that I could maybe do is I'd love karaoke brandy my I would love to hear I would love to have rendition outlook are already looking at all absolutely and dom. So I said that he said all that he said that while you say that that's a song we saying early on when we got you know we are pleased to recover from other. Other abandoned and it was so they knew it and they had played it before I didn't realize that a part of it OK I don't know a different idea. I imagine they just stood there they said the other day that you liking and they just went into your right it does happen. Leg you Wu who is. There's going to be several nice will be you know my guitar player Clayton is the biggest of Van Halen fan I think on the planet he does logged in and so. One night we were we were playing us atlas to. You know what forgot what it was run with a double or whatever what right Brian Haig is sort of plan. You know them in he had played his whole life and it's an. I might go ahead I want I want it. Make the correlation to what we just saw on first pre season games not only for topics but for undrafted free agent who all got their first look. In the NFL. So we're talking a little bit last night how are you gonna on the road what Tony five years now. The so he even before you headlined when you were just starting that first time when you're going up on stage I'm just trying to. You know where I'm going try to make the equivalent of that you going from college to pro ball and now you're in the big time so. Take us back there two to that point and just like the nervousness and the thought process I was. Very nervous I was I had no idea what I was told Maria was. We not my real men and I was over at 444425. So I was and I'd played music and in college but just it was just like this proposals to Obama self right the Mexican restaurant. For tips. You know that guy when he goes on talk about what did you play that. What that I play act like when you're sitting in the Mexican restaurant in Tennessee someplace. What would Wear that with a jar in front of you and people dropping dollar bills and at what some three point oh I was playing. And was playing the Eagles I was playing Tom patio is playing Jackson Braun I was playing. You know some country Allan but I was it was it was so many different things and you know my musical taste then. Mirror his mom's place now I truly believe that the music that you make as an adult. What comes out of view as an adult is is is they're really good reflection of what you've consumed as a as a as a as a kid you write and I'm no different you know like I was even dead in college I was. Playing so many things you know I. I just loved it so that you get to the stage for the first time you know to the stage for the first time and I'd never been you know I I never had a band. Cause it was always just mile school I never had a band two I went on the road. It was hard to get used to that that but the thing that was exciting and I'm sure for all these players that. You know like in the patriots played last night for those guys that you know whether they make the team or not. Date date date they've got they've got that uniform on their author on the on field and that's got to be the most exciting feeling for them. And it was the same way for me going up on stage now because everything everything. That you experience is brand new. You know at that level and news is still though I I I I get excited what a road. 'cause I mean all the way to the superstars are tiptoed to go to the concert last night. I always think of one of the most incredible things is when you're doing a song and you can just basically put the microphone on us about it and everybody is missing in law you're not saying well Ed. It it it's ECU. Beat you you feel this recognition. Of other people's lives and there doing the things they've gone through and and how much they've lived of that music. You know it's one thing is to listen to a song on the radio but Ford for that music means so much into. You made that for them to live within it. And that care enough to come and sit there and single songs back to you mr. look as it went in when date and hour and college. But I've told you don't got about four or five guys on the road Maine that I went to college with a high school. In the view as dust bin and if we would have had that many people sing and all these songs back to us that that I wrote. We would hope we will we will probably a bet against it we just wanted I I told David I I said. I I would it be great if we could just get a bus one time and you sure do one tour and play some of the places that are heroes play with every great. And this is our 25 trip. It is still a better along those lines you go from there to where you are now two. When you do these stadiums shows you have god knows how many eighteen wheelers taking your stuff anywhere god knows how many people. Who are kind of depended on you as the star. Well what are what a difference in feeling you've become that the beginning guy to like to see all of this whole thing yeah and it's not. Oh yeah I was. So this was several years ago when it really hit me and we knew we had been doing football stadiums a couple of years and we were I was I woke up outside of Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. And I looked out the window Mombasa now all these buses and all these trucks and and I I don't usually seal stuff you know every day and when he got a lot of stuff out here when who's paying for all this and Alan. Hope you are. A person here and not try to rise although no I'm not thinking about how much gas goes in those things a couple of you know but but to answer your previous point and and how to get like really melodramatic here but like. People live with your music not just in the good moments like and that that's the really important partly you know my favorites on the razors on don't like I was never I never listen to country music my life until that night at the at the White House. And then again I don't wanna get too serious here but like when my dad was really really sick. I remember being in the hospital and going outside and like I put that song and I listen to that and that that was. Whatever it means it means but my point to people live with your stuff at the most emotional point of their wives. And it comes to mean things to them that you might even knelt like what are you that song means whatever means to you but to other people it means whatever means to them so it's. I don't even know that I'm trying to make a point here but by and let it matters more to people in some ways that you may even realize. And that's the beauty of being a songwriter McCullough you could write something from a personal experience or whatever it is a life experience. And you can in you can write that song and record it and you put it out and just like you were talking. You'd never know how people or gone to listen to what going on in their life and how White House what does it mean to them. And make it could mean something completely different to them then it. You as the greater muscle who wrote and so that's the beauty of music and then you know and I. Feel very blessed to be doing that in. To and then what it led to be you being a sports guy I mean division detours are kind of open and all the sports people who were now. Wanna be around would you endured you do as I've always said I took it as a four. It was always like entertainers wanna be athletes and athletes straight all on and I we all beyond that stage singing and like the first sports guy ever met with Rick Sutcliffe and he was still playing. He knew he was not play for the cubs he's he was playing for the cardinals actually which is ironic that such rivals but he right plainly was he was playing with a cardinals' opening those last year. And I was doing a show at a club called whiskey river in Chicago. And and nobody knew I was I swear they thought of the house band with. OK but Rick Sutcliffe do the cult he he would he would he would. Knee surgery or something he had did something was knee and he had a song now that nobody her coat whatever it takes but he somehow heard it. And use that song as inspiration for his rehab. And so I was there singing that song and him and Mark Grace were at the show. And those two guys the first. Pro athletes or athletes of all that I ever met that told me the same thing you just say. Mark. As well I guess you think pleasant and basic rights I don't know. I thought so there is there's this mutual respect and over the years I think if you come to our shows we have all these that the collages of of of these backdrop everywhere in our tour and it's just a collage of pictures of people that we've we've come close to over the years. Anderson there are a lot of musicians on them but their whole Lotta Lotta sports beat up in you guys are runners you know the several times and I don't know it's just been an interesting thing to watch happen you know the cause acting that. We have a lot of people and sports convert those because deep down. They would love it because it's a different feeling to be up there than on the field and I and I think that day. They do the the part of me that would really love to be on the field. They get that in Beirut would really love the BO we ought. NHL he is here we will definitely get to a little sports but coming up next because he has the guts to do it. I've got branding here ready to go I got here garlic is going to sing his favorites on his is is is karaoke go through I quoted a few weeks ago Jake sweating. Not at the wedding itself rather two nights before where it was as an Nigerians. Who used to play and sing or Amateur Boxing and dishonest and establishing domestic or you know and you know I give out phone recorder you can and is an important going to be on TV so it doesn't look crazy you're gonna lava to.
