On the shell Pennzoil performance line. So it is Boston Marathon day and certainly a lot of meaning that outside just state a huge marathon but five years. The days since the that the tragedy there at the bomb more often the finish line. I'm just that horrific experience but. Here radar again another Boston Marathon I've been seeing stories of those at the survivors and where they are now there have been some incredible stories. Going along those lines and then just such a great marathon to run just a shame they got such a horrible horrible day. It's a nice weekend but now. The northeast here hit with like freezing rain it's high thirties low forties. Pouring rain now and Boston so that's a shame for them our own field Yates was supposed to run in this he and his fiancee. He hurt his knee. Which which is such a bomber because I saw my wife to all the training she had to do for the New York City Marathon went at Chris from that marathon build a city in 2016 yeah that's amazing and soul. It took to see all that training and then you're not you can't get the fulfillment of mourning in America feel former friend's fiancee is gonna run an obvious he'll be Herschel. Earning her I would never think of running a marathon and all you could. No I thought at all I think at one point my life maybe I would have thought he has critical for the arrest me but the amount of working guy happens unreal inning Mike is it's unreal what I was zero through on Saturday they guy got a -- two mile run you know as far as it Trammell if there's twenty miles media harbors were a breakfast I'll be there on my third breakfast and you know as you're doing that -- -- -- -- runner yes -- America on right how many marathons have you run Dan I have run 22 marathon York city marathon New York finished here in Hartford and 242 and so are you up to do another one -- was -- once she said never again every time I do law and I'm always -- tonight and say -- at the time and dynamite in a -- pride and do it against -- she said she'll -- half marathon to prison she goes. I get like thirteen mile she said would be great if I was done right now the only guy out of thirteen miles to go so yeah I've been training looks incredible for that and now you have to run it. In the rain I mean I'll bet there's got to be got it's gotta be brutal having said that though an active of adversity those two towns over Colorado many can match that euphoria of crossing that finish like I think greatly relieved in July for our men have been relieved when a restriction and remembered the issues dealing with now that early for you cross the finish line must be X it is almost it's almost like when I'm just about to finish. Then appetizer and another doughnut does go to fiddle. Act as jotted a note July that's thrown out when he didn't. Always did he go man asked how glad to hear that there. I gathered to get their parent I glove he could sympathize. All right here is what's trending by the way this hour ball going abroad to relic into ins and sweets book and Al Q dot com or win a business to maker to gonna join us but seven minutes from now toppled baseball or told Cologne bottle it was unbelievable yesterday. A perfect game through seven but in the NBA Mike the pacers beat the cavs 9082. Snapple brawn James a streak of 21 consecutive first round wins. Which was the longest streak by any player under the current playoff formats since 1984. First time his team is trail that a first round series at any point out first and foremost we give a tip of the cap to the pacers in what they were able to do Victor all the people was just. Absolutely on fire six of nine from three point land 1119 overall. Scored 32 points or he was he was a monster for team that again the nation didn't get to see a lot they were on a national TV just one time. Odds this year. Had a monster first game there were suffocating on defense is while we know Cleveland isn't very good defensive LeBron did have the triple double but. He really does make it all is shot to the restricted there more than his jumpers got that a free throw line a bunch. And had no help from anybody Kevin Love only had eight shots in this game he needs more somebody else. Has got to be on a pick up the slack and JR Smith actually coming off the bench yesterday. With fifteen points hitting three of his 63 cell. They're gonna need to come out with a whole lot more aggression against a team that really came and let let's be honest the pacers came out imports from Wright and Austin puncher can cavaliers right in the nose in the cavs never recovered the pacers never. Never trailed in this game and that's her baby shouldn't be asked I think is a pacers played great against him in the right this is a series this is a 45 match we care about seeding systolic to one verses eight this is obviously a week in Cleveland Tebow eggs in the past the stale to lose by eighteen at home that was stunning to me. Gregg Popovich says the spurs are still waiting for quite letters medical team declare him Santonio lost the goal Tuesday wars in game one on Saturday. That was not a contest doors were all of them. But Popovich reiterated the next stepping get a letter back to the arrest of the forwards. Medical team a source telling ESPN's Michael C Wright the spurs don't expect letter back at any point in the post season. He is harbor that polices the week after the Ulster require a mad things that you all horrible I Popovich whose normally answers a question and sometimes you know the sort of a little oh well that's a little much for me but tickets kinda known as the Popovich way at that point. PX to avoid the answer questions on whether it would be helpful of letter or word fair. Richard team supported the team. Through the playoffs and it kind of walked around that a little bit and but overall basically said today. Not up to me not up to offs the players are allowed to go get a second opinion he has his group out there. There's medical group and he's not gonna do anything until vet group. Says he's good to go so obviously the spurs are really in tough against the Eagles there roars like while edited a widow any additional. I just for our boy cliff Temple University interest in Jersey change in their spring game Saturday is cherry like him included. Twitter handles on the back of the jerseys. We seem programs increasing aware of social media presence at USC and Stanford two programs to put their players handles on the depth chart for games. And Clemson to Texas to Washington the would mention their players a bigger accounts it says some imminent. This all stems to me back from the ex FL rod Smith PH very cool won't listen Jeff Carl what we get my son and I did a temple game and error thing a lot of fun to do and when they I think it was when the player got a turnover they were put their hand all. On I'm a white board on the they're Twitter handle on the sideline I was very cool. And what else is very cool. And I should have to send us jerseys or send in trained eye jerseys with our Twitter handle legal and regulatory panel and cliff. Let's get plus Philly is that I handle is well but that's cool lesson you know that is if she's being aware of the sign of the times man I mean. Unless you're a program that says guys don't go on social media we're still watch your hostages so hard to do. And and it is a tough thing to do so the other side of that is to really try and Warren and explain. The dangers of possibilities that that could lie out there 418 to 22 year old in a Twitter for old world. I'll just how difficult to get beat there are embracing it and you know hopefully players don't overstep. You know in mr. I I like the fact that they're doing this and have in the fall within the spring of putting it on the jerseys and other programs. Are doing on the depth charts I figured hey you know embrace it but not fighting it here. You know it's in all honesty I can't. I'd still Don what the coaches. I don't know if there's snapped space and although I don't know got courted big think are cool like today. I don't know this well now don't sound like a mile run video her much it really does Crimea c'mon this. I respect people say they don't do social media they find to be negative distraction honestly I don't know I it in the states Twitter instant grim faced a wherever it is you gotta be a part because that's for so many people are consuming information especially young kids analysts on NAFTA itself there's an untenable for doing that. I've never came for trades go going on ESPN radio and ESPN news before we bring in Tim urgent. Or talk a little bit of baseball here and Bartolo Cologne or all my god she turns 45 next month and last night I'm watching them B class want to watch the rockets T awards Minnesota seeing him there. A watched hockey in Washington Capitals they lose an all time sir labor roster was unbelievable for Columbus 54 saves now the caps Abel story Mike they're now down 02 and the stamina hold the walls of blowing you know hard to roll leads as well and just now crippling to see that and then big Bard was unbelievable leadoff walk to Carlos Correa and it Josh -- double ended the bid Michael who would have become. The oldest pitcher to throw a no hitter. Honestly was amazes see in Josh on it was a part of a called game Prius can radio. We want one we're Satterfield those teeth back. And right here makes that catch patting it like that 44 year old Bart to full blown perfect through seven. A brutal I'll set the scene all night long and I'll pursue rentable 83 pitches 59 for strikes entering the eighth inning. Mr. meant to give up a walk and then the double and to get the no decision the Rangers do get the win though what. Don't they miss there was see the big man in the batter's box. We didn't have the data do not quite the joining of the dark colored paper acai I would give Mike was awesome yeah I love baseball on another medal is baseball. Our baseball insider Tim Kirch and joining us on the cell pencil conformist like get the feeling of being rewarded with a gold status shall. With the fuel awards program dale the fuel awards app joins start saving. Five cents a gallon today Timmy. Cartel poll was released by the Rangers on March 24 he's resize two days later and last night and our airwaves inside baseball he almost pulled off. The nearly impossible what you think you watching it. There well the word didn't one of the coolest things we've ever seen as Teddy would've been the oldest guy ever do that Nolan Ryan with a similar age. By the heat down the road like Bart he didn't throw like Bartolo Colo does now it is a look like Bartolo Cologne but just. Another reminder of the beauty of baseball he'd come. In all shapes and sizes and here's a guy who throws basically all fastball and let people go ahead try it this. But you have no idea what quadrant is going to and I changed speed to opera it and that's why he had such a remarkable career. And still going at 44 made. Shapes and sizes can determine are really enjoy that Millen rhyme by the way through a record seven no hitters thrown in 1991 he was 44 years in ninety days old so. Now Bartolo call would have been the oldest to do that are Timmy around the league right now the early part of the season but. Starting to Regis just clips here and there are about more more guys that are going on the DL for this or DL for that. Where it where do you think has been though the worst effect for this for a team and players that I they have lost. There's so many teams that are being crushed again by injuries this year and collectors have been to this terribly cold weather that is affecting these players and no excuses. Those sympathy necessary but it's no easy to get injured in a baseball game. And then you turn the temperature down to the thirty and we have so no rain everything else and that's where some of this. It's coming around and it simply is not a well played game anti war when it played in this kind of weather. Nobody's fault and it's just the way it is in April but with these all these postponement. And players not have their bodies in there. You know in the right rhythm baseball is very much a rhythm game they've played every day now go when they're gonna go. Or five days without playing game that's really unhealthy. Our baseball team early and it's either and I think that's part of the reason we're seeing as many injuries as we have. Dock with the greats in Karachi right now on goal and we know is ESPN news. Jimmy look at the mets' NL best twelve and two we knew that was so much Davis pick in the nationals when they and only something had to go awry and so far. The Mets have been that team that's a surprise and what's part of the surprises this meant RB may get dropped from that rotation he was a guy you thought one he has to bounce back. Who now has some consistency but instead Mickey cal always in a great job with his bullpen can sell them Lugo. Have been terrific for them what did you see from this Mets team. Well they're starting rotation has been great and when you start with the ground. It's an art in whatever order those guys are healthy you're gonna have a chance that's how dominant those guys that didn't. And Mickey Callaway being a former pitcher. Any former pitching coach he knows all about there's and I think he's. And the right message to the pictures this year and maybe just as important their line it is pretty good right now with Michael could afford a back way earlier than expected. Copycats but that added Todd traders that creep its lineup to go with the with the rotation especially Beck can eat absolutely dominant. And Rick you're right the bullpen has been great so far also finally anybody saw it coming with the mavs I think we all understood it that great young starting rotation. Is healthy for the season they're going to be a contender and they've been they've been more than that so far. Yeah you know all met fans who just waited for the shooter dropped their way to improve avoided jury after an idealistic oh my gosh so much so our right. I Timmy we sit here we see the pirates' lead the central eleven for the Diamondbacks. Leave the west and eleven and four so even with the vision taken into consideration as well. Which of these teams in your mind has the best chance to actually continue maybe not at this pace but as far as where they are new division right near the top. Well I'd I'd like where the Diamondbacks are that structure and they may play out last year and I hate being there or maybe they're even better this year I think they're gonna miss Judy Martinez which you know he was so good. And after they acquired him in in September he was ridiculously good bye. I can see that I'm back keep that up a little while they're pitching in awfully good right now and they can score some runs also. An pick. Pittsburgh looked tired aren't going that clout pretty sure about that guy. I saw them this spring airline at this pretty good admission from the team that just got rid of every one they're gonna win sixty games this year they're they're going to be. 500 team I think and that's pretty darn good when you're in the process of moving some people are. Further proof Tim we should never take too much stock in spring training statistics show hailed Connie has been the story of this baseball season so far. Not only hitting those home runs a pitching so well I foresee the star yes sir it was postponed but. Honestly I I think is a baseball lover like yourself is just so great to see this story because we you always want is in new stories and new players to log. And the way the Japanese just embrace baseball we already knew the media coverage or be up the charts now the fact he's already matching those expectations. I mean how great his CO tiny. Delivering for the angels so far. Let me tell you how did he is it is. He has better this than anything I have done in my life is better there that anything you will do in your life. Agree this searching for Bobby Fischer from ten urgent now. That would jets' Brad and appointed the guy is doing something that really hasn't been done since they are the kinds of Beirut and it would be. Enormous pressure if you were coming here at 23 just trying to beat eight pitcher. War just trying to be a hitter and he's doing both men. It's absolutely amazing in a very small sample how good he'd been so far I saw him in spring training. And that brought tools or obviously the power that beautiful swing that a lot you know fastball a break on the split. All add up to go to play particularly I think in big repeat. This good that this quickly basically just walking over 600 point higher. As a hitter and the elite it's like being against him as a pitcher that. That those are ridiculous number. There's some great great story lines early on in the season in baseball this year real hope they can continue throughout the season and certainly restore lie we talk about. Every year is the mere Jackie Robinson to baseball and Jackie Robinson day yesterday. In Major League Baseball talk about that for a moment and just due to still the the reverence that is just held for this this this man. Yeah well I I still hope after all these years we understand how important. Jackie Robinson was based law and to this country in baseball. Finally figured this out the country went along with it for the most part. Jack rabbit looked at baseball player. Even the civil rights activist and he really changed the game and so many ways. And because of that I think we prepare to die and how great eight later he was how. Amazing he was on the base path out tremendously athletic he was in every way and I just remember talking a prank rabbit about this years ago and I think they crank or did you learn from Jack I've been. And prank of course race hatred and rate them in the minor league especially when it first came up. And he says Jackie taught them the same thing the only way to beat them and the best way to eat them. Is to go beat them on the field any said that look the lesson that Jackie talked all of us. And I don't think we he will ever be forgotten certainly baseball and in the history of this country. And nobody's fees of more reverence for the game and you Tim and I echo those sentiments there's a that a Jackie Robinson and Jackie Robinson day that is so special one more baseball question Korea. Cubs and yankees both seven and seven which star concerns you more. I don't. I neither one of them concerns me frankly because that the long season and I spoke shall be in the playoff. At the end of the release and I'm not concerned about the Yankees is all the injuries they've had and their bullpen has been terror and their bullpen is corny. But this is baseball and great bullpen that. Pitched poorly once in awhile and that's been the case among other things that the Yankees I think they'll turn this around and quickly. And so will the cut cut them Anthony Rizzo on the DL looks like he's coming back hopefully tonight. And I don't think there's much to worry about there and quit either Keane you speak to. After the issues moving forward they have all the money and all the resource and oral. To go fix it with traders something else. Or minor league systems of both those teams. Slow start not too much sort. To Kirch is always a blast to hang Lou we're talking baseball of course Tim is a Renaissance mannequins to discuss many topics until we off the loved his talk movies. I know your new wife Kathy love three billboards at tonight in Missouri but I've never merger review yet on the shape of water at practice always saying I love the film. My goal despise the film you'd have to weigh in Timmy what did you think of it did you see it. Now I haven't seen it. I'm only gonna do read wired yea I don't get into the movie is not that you do that then I have even seen it yet. But I've heard gullet I really hate that and wonder what it and it's actually air when it comes to the greatest movies that must be hilarious together. Jimmy Howard just say that that matchup you always watch go back and re watch them all from decadent and go out you rather watch a water you know bought any dvd can. I'm I know you had seen to be our lead early passed away he played the drill instructor in full metal jacket how great. That first hour that movie how power and how much of that movie right incredible. It was pretty good pretty incredible it was too intent certainly I can't say stuff like that it's too hard on me but I watch I barely got hurt because I am so weak and I am so squeamish on things like. It was a tough one I I I've with a lot of we can all enjoy searching for Bobby Fischer and movies about helped him urgent thanks so much today is very. Yeah are critical about it I don't think he'll ever watch people want to know. Except like the result the Fed's ability little metal jacket manner that that was more of those movies where you know what a stark difference in the first hour in the second hour of I don't know the first ever in the second half the second ever thought was awful yes when I was older players have to plot was one of the most in series right intents and ended it. It can be tough to watch very intense and and that this this actor paso was a Marine Corps veteran so I mean he's fit the bill perfectly for for being the drill sergeant here. So I always feel like you're the best war movies I've seen are like platoon. And glory and you know I batted Dunkirk most of refill and then saving Frontline and the first half a full metal jacket youngest are only hurt me he's just so profane and savagely on real incredibly memorable like it's tough to have that dichotomy being both terrifying and incredibly entertaining and he's able to do that and it's it's not for the way to shell shocked him before tweeting a famous lines the movie almighty god that we -- cameo is good at but he also Mississippi Burning centers for each story every dollar against foot and around a little bit Asante can't essays is the guy is so likely you could be a modern art masterpiece and it.

I've never camper trailer go look at wearing a money has been reviewing ESPN news is always present about progress insurance all of our phone gas in the shell Pennzoil performance climates it was a pleasure of guest in studio. As he's been MB of profits insider and co host of NB insiders and is in radio. I'm remarks joining us in zero given the straight talk brought you by straight talk wireless best those best networks no contracts Bobby. New York Knicks melodrama levied as the world Thursday to whatever so far for you want I should look at that list to me it feels uninspired which your reaction you see the list of potential candidate. I'll I agree I mean I think we look at a New York. Orlando Phoenix physically been here before in years ago ray has I think that says a lot about the organization. You can either go the David is dale Mark Jackson around Horry to probably go out of the box that Jerry Stackhouse who has paid his dues and in the geely and now up in Toronto and I think whoever it is they better be prepared to rebuilt I mean this is a make this is a major rebuilding your prod in check out your best player until after. Probably after that tray as trade deadline and in February Christoph sport where zing is but they've got to get right they can't be doing this you know tears from now. There's got to be some stability with that with who comes in here. So what is getting it right I mean is it a former coach who's been around for awhile is that Jerry Stackhouse say you you paid your dues were like what you're doing. Let's bring that here I mean what with a young team building around a 743. You know hooked. New player type of the NBA. What direction do you think they should go. I think he should be go the direction of Gerri stack as I think if you look across the river will Brooklyn was able to do it Kenny Atkinson a former assistant coach in Atlanta. Heavy player development there are no Brooklyn 12829. Games this year and and they're not playoff team but. Would Kenny has been able to do is I think what would New York should do as far as well put a foundation in place and and Steve Mills and and Scott Perry have been all about it we're gonna build through the draft its youth movement here and I think Jerry Stackhouse states that it's bill. Doctor Bob remarks right now goal going is great news good news. Such a pass the situation with the spurs and coli Leonard this guy is the top five players in the MBA. Baby number three on his best day and Gregg Popovich is a brilliant coach I'll favor and get the cake on the same page and you can feel. Pops agitation was saying listen his cancer snobbery that's why he's not here. But how in the world this is gonna get resolved if you're at there's no chance to play this policies and maybe you'll ever be a spur again and you're right and I'm I'm right in my brain now just this when they lose it to have their pitcher they're ready and my first my first leading is do you trust co why Leonard wood 200 million dollar extension this summer that that's for the front office is going to. I have to ask themselves in this has been going on since September here. I'm disappointed that he's now with the team. In Golden State and that he is on pop avoided that question yeah he did that he's back in New York rehabbing. What are you re ready rehab for your your team's going to be eliminated in about a week probably here. I don't know how we get it gets resolved if he gets resolved at all but. You're coming at a crossroads because they'll be Applera analyzer a contract. You know that. Expiring he's don't have much value molesters commitment with that acquiring team long term. On but there's gonna have to be sit down here because that stemmed that extension is going to be sitting there and it's it's a matter of if Santonio offers it to him. If they offered imagine if you turned it down I just read them all their but I mean it is is that overlooking act because it does look like it's it's a broker relationship then. Where he moves on to I mean how many teams would be jumper with that I'll I think you'd have all. You know I'm probably not some of these rebuild right you have the the main teams. And what would would happen is that night we went through in New Jersey with with Carmelo is is that you get to a point where. San Antonio will probably give permission for teams to talk to Weis can't beat them find out if there's a long term. Long term commitment BP before. A team is willing to give up major assets. That that's what you're gonna happen but right now I want to one day you and you'll you'll see a resolution by. Ended July I would think I mean he's eligible right when a free agency starts July 6. Also ensures an actual game action cavs get routed at home I guess the surprise here is twofold one just that the Rogers never losing game one of the planned series and how convincingly India played particularly deep below 32 points. As somebody who knows a game so well were you a surprise in the rest of us where the Indians stopped I was on a flight yesterday coming up here and like I. I turn my phone you'll jetBlue does that channel seven time and alive I don't know why I have never been fixed there and I saw 25 yea right off the bat and that surprised me just because of a better in Cleveland team. Indiana and yet they are put together basically new this summer. And then what I when he get off those big leads then Cleveland really pressed. And when you're reliant on the three ball fifth in the league in attempts. You press and you're playing catch up humans have to play perfect game there but I think we've underestimated India a little bit their five C compare reason why they're five seed and and electoral depots and all NBA type player and now he proved the instant insult our forefront along the airline. And were hearing from their fans all over the place of the disrespect if they have you know being on today that that the media is giving ambient effects are on one. Nationally televised game all year. How close is that team the pacers to being two really challenging. To come out of the east. I I think Cleveland's though gets this series I mean I've been part of series where we've. Blown out teams in Los for a row from from there. There are hot topic of the draft aboard with Toronto at the once he I don't see I I actually don't see either team getting past Toronto here. I really don't it's and I think Indiana's a great story. From what they're able to do the old people who trade how Kevin Pritchard put his team together. But I think Derrick good team I don't think there that I think their time will come buys something different now to LeBron streaks administrators make up files like come soon and this year it does pay if there was it's in the Eastern Conference semi finals or. If they were there at there and got a three CI I've been on Toronto. All year I've been a big believer in his bench. You know you get through the demons of game one as we as we saw before nine DeRozan six to seventeen but -- right NC -- -- I've done the bench -- resign up Hackett has done dancers and Fred van -- was it was on the sidelines who's probably one year better players in knee he got CJ miles in the offseason and as a kind of that veteran stabilize it and I had them sweep into Washington in this where is that in this series I'm not a believer in this Washington team I know that backcourt is dynamic. But them than the regular season in kind of left a sour taste in my mouth. Where you put the 76ers they're kind of the big talk out because we see Toronto kind of nosedive when they get that applies haven't gotten over that camel or help him. At the cavs do come back human missing got to they're gonna see it in the next round but what about the 76ers this year after they get MB back. While that's the quiz question and and I think Miami missed a golden opportunity on Saturday and we saw I think exact quote tweeted out that as on Whiteside was really late this engage storing that whole game. And this Philadelphia team. I give credit to Bryan Colangelo to go out and get Marco Belinelli Ers not you know Ersan Ilyasova two veterans. In late February because that's kind of stabilized. As long with Redick in and Amir Johnson but. I I never seen a rookie or I guess we can debated he's a rookie Ben in Ben Simmons or it could turn other story pet. Rookie to an asterisk what do you put a performance like that Saturday night where he took over in the second half there it's almost that would Jason Tatum did in strategist in Boston but. He's got such a great feel for the game where he you know I had Jason Kidd New Jersey but he makes everyone so much better but. A Philly Boston if we get there would be who would be pretty pretty interest in stock right now body marks is going to be for opposites are also co host of NB insiders. On ESPN radio. I still like the rockets beat the T wolves but it is interesting Bobby and I I was surprised Minnesota had to battle and fight claw just to make the Playhouse and Jimmy Boller is out placed on their collection of talent. Carl Anthony towns in doing necessarily shoot better than that but. How concerning the rock is dismal day from beyond the arc and a reliance 44 Martin to win one I think that's if you're looking at a silver lining that they do not play their best game and they won by four but he needed 44 from Harding in and down the stretch. And in a close a close game here I think you're gonna need a better performance you'll get at this series and we'll see if it's Houston may be oh okay CNET sector and the union better performance from Chris Paul I thought. Some of the decision making we saw that errant pass at the end of the game. All around Munich and I just Paul but you know air record and Trevor reason you're you're relying on the three ball when your missing shots. That changes the game in the game a little bit the Minnesota. A team that's been efficient with their bench although rose had a great game I thought he had a pretty good game last night you do. Carl Anthony county got to get more than nine shots and I think we they forgot about him down then vanished into skiing. Mayor Tom Thibodeau guy who was Alice in the last weeks and after this game meant he needs to be more active as well I agree they need to get the ball to him. More as well so we talk about used to talk about gold they gave Oklahoma City to an extent of what they've done. So these four teams. Portland Utah Minnesota New Orleans in two to three years one of those teams is going to be at or right near the top of the west. And were saying this who could be a legitimate NBA title team which one which human being. I think Utah because Donovan Mitchell where he is right now and you've got Rudy go bear locked up basing these that the core this group is. Is locked up another year. Here though have a draft pick but I like Utah just because of the Mitchell factor and get a free agent though that that would be the rat that's the best the big question is that this is a team that's always had a bill through the draft and they've been. Fortunate to land. You know Gordon Hayward eight years ago Uga Mitchell. You were able to. Rubio and it Ricky Rubio and trade that that's the big thing is will freeagent go out to. Utah they have over possible flexibility this summer or next year but that that would be probably the missing piece there.

Give me your rear view for some of the thought I'd like that I mean listen it's it's there's nothing. Crazy about his shot budgets while Howell who's written or boat blew this or that here it was a predictable movie but it was really funny and the reason analysts and I'll just be honest yes there's it was our. I mean it was hard are there was a hard RM and listen it was dirty humor sure and I'm not realize. I'm a fan of dirty humor and humor I can do what or the PG humor as well yes but. This was funny and ended being are made a funny John seeing a very good. She I I really I think he does a nice job you look at that too. Former wrestler guys in the back guys C guy and now obviously the rock where he's doing Rampage came out just who's number whenever he's on a Rampage yes we will do what he's doing the scene is. Actually gave -- time job I completely agree east stays in his line of what he does he does a really good job of it he it was a very very funny movie. Saw what what might get in my Chris we're really enjoyed that got very good reviews soundly donuts is a formula three and a half Jason Fitch came as well fit CIA before that Mike went three Saul were put three and a half out there as you have like four fiddles as you. That offers emotion he he we just we just I used well or my donut thing so we can't afford or Terry half of one of them and I felt really good about holidays check up blockers also on HBO is Paterno has been Regis debuted April 7 I had a chance to watch it was away on vacation when he came back watching this weekend cell. I thought out which you know was terrific playing Joseph Paterno white people always he always looked like and resemble them and he should enjoy the movie that he was getting the classes in the nose red underwear for static. On and the bogey completely focuses on just that mobile what's the story broke Penn State about Jerry sandusky and a crimes it is charged with and how effective paternal and it adds interest to seal the story Mike is Wii Sports as we know so while we Libya discussed on the radio. I wonder I think at this film was intended more for broader audience who were not aware of journals legacy and how right near horizon and the valley all came crashing down oh let let me ask you this though. How. Do you think and what have you heard. Penn State fans and Joseph Paterno fans what do they think about yeah I think they're portrayal they feel like that the movie took some liberties Barry Levinson directed it won the Oscar for Amy and they felt it took some liberties are trying to guess what was going on his mental state could you watched the cheetah was Paterno. And he comes across as his daughter in the old man who really wasn't with it and was nowhere. What was going on he comes across the guy we single minded just wanna focus on football right let's put the course take care of the stuff I don't know what happily Jerry you have mcqueary told with the meters to I report which is what I was supposed to do and let's move on. And what it really comes down to is the fact that the the critics of the terrible say he or moral responsibilities you more. It was handled yourself with the movie doesn't take too cute issue question. A strong Santa doesn't sorry okay Cardoza villain and new Friday that it and it doesn't say he was in here and didn't know that kind of try to play down the middle on the fact she was only spinal basically Jack Kevorkian now you know I've Jack won an Emmy for that it was and now Reich always America won Emmy for that. A the Irish and he's playing Jimmy Hoffa that's coming out next year. So one I thought it was early while the mood I'm curious what you think and it got sent a sports fans we don't really well and ended it is interesting what you say of those outside the sports rule if they watch and don't really know a lot about what's going out what they're Reid is going to be about it rarely I think and longer as well it's actually an hour forty minutes we'd open turtles legacy and now you focus and his life and his career now he built I've been told an hour forty minutes you're literally just focus on six days and it's literally just here's at all was crashing down so it's we have the rare move I thought. Could've been longer ride had more kind of telling before and after but it is still amazing to figure out a spectacular fall from grace in the fact that shortly after let's later. Diagnosed as an ambassador went through area about LeBron Chiming in at rampages Mike mentioned 140 million dollars worldwide really quick anybody see it. And it very out there yet nobody's seen it yet you know I mean it it's its Rampage is certainly that's Rampage and speaking of going on the Rampage while the best pass rushes of all time does decide to hang them up someone that was tasked with blocking it will join us next on an amber.
