The movie dodge ball salute losers fantastic but it dodge ball and the behind the dodge ball team is a guy juggling. Boy and pins and you try to protect that guy and I've. I've always like that and when they shorted slow motion guys running around sliding on their knees throwing low shot to him. Is very cool yeah I really did a lot of fun stuff to watch so that that can body did you watch it I bought a body is tough for me to understand all I know is that guys running around with a holding his aura his breath. I that was a heart that was the most amazing thing to end the hardest part about that is you can't tell me that it's you know it. When do not holding his breath anymore we will soon he senior to Europe did you cheat doing that and how do you do you find a good the first thing every athlete does this is when there are rules of sub view find out how you can get around go to Iraq first thing you do correct but by the way all of those as the people that don't know we're talking about. Yesterday we turn on 8818 we turned used into the is in the O Joseph fourteen years after dodge ball lower the dog bowl championships were on. The O Joseph we made all these alternative sports speaking of that we still hold bats and we are college you'll you'll love this. About how long you hold your breath yeah it was a hot tub right outside. Our our Condo and it was one of those hot tubs where the bubble were coming up by. So are we think we we we would go on record basically would we we gathered like thirty minutes with how you do this we would have our lips are on the air will be out blowing through there. That we are betting the system I'm going to say if there was one point when Mike and Jake when they were that living with a bunch other players that they had the thought process. Of hey we wanna get a hot tub via I can't think. Of any thinkers we all remember college everyone of us who are members certain parts of at least usually exactly my point college. You know when they say college prepare you for real life it doesn't that's a lot of today there's a lot of things are going to college that you wanna leave and colleges. And a lot of good you'd leave and hot complex I mean figure out they hot tub. And for college kids is one of the most disgusting. Thought processes I could ever imagine. What that would be like. That's why Josh Rosen continues to be our my god people they got mad at him for a picture when he was that to use UN with a hot of his apartment dude you're not getting life while he got it right. I think. And again we have that's a drag on Dario and so anyway that was part of yesterday the coach hope you enjoyed it I was goal on team to body. Lots to get today we are present about progress insurance all phone guest join us on the shell pencil performance line you get in touch those of the 100 flowers dot dot com put her feet or aura or. A get in touch wheels on her voicemail and it's 605065505. Let's start the show after delving into our hot tub stories with what stressed. It is the last major of the year the PGA championship for the dollar country club and outside of Saint Louis and Tiger Woods. Will make his fourth major start of the year and as the 100 PGA championship. He'll be the first time he started all four majors since 2015. And won't miss more cuts of the PGA than any of the majors is eleven result. He's managed to play thirteen events on tour this season his second most of this point in the last ten years might. Yeah and he was always he had been excellent the PGA making the cut he threw his first he first thirteen starts. Four wins eight top ten finishes but as of late missed three cuts in five starts to restore our nearly two thirds of his rob so. Will seek is supposed to have been re arrows raining there. Everything's supposed to be soft toss up though the big hitters both to be big in this starts at that 817. Tony feed out Jim Durkin. Softly show awfully thank you very much a low dollar and that is just incredible on this love that name by the way. Day I tear off my first at 870. Some power groups Rickie Fowler Ian pulled learned a few months TI am at 839. Mickelson Jason Day Keegan Bradley. And and it 9801. I'd like to be 901 I believe. And Tiger Woods it says NATO won here but I know it's 901 Tiger Woods Justin Thomas Rory McIlroy nine point three that's a formal lose straight thought the Albemarle the last out of our you know what I'll say about this school. Is John driving holes that they all have their drivers out tiger will be driving and then hitting first yes because while tiger is hitting the ball a mile. He is not hitting it further than Rory McIlroy Justin Thomas knew holiness. And I don't know this is a not a a golfer on the PGA. And that way you're not a golfer I'm guys George Wrighster that first day I know it all turned around like Jordan speech he's off at 237 meant tomorrow to be in the early form but I. I I gotta believe guys like teeing off in the morning and completely guessing on that I don't know voter rather give up and get out there. Yeah well it you know it always depends on the weather I think it if the weather has such a huge part of this of any golf throw I had like crack you're too and it is socially eat what you really want is. Sometimes guys like to get out later on the first round and go win Friday early edit post a score and then have a little more time to rest before you go out and play the weekend round. Quickly by the way from Westgate favorite Dustin Johnson and 921 Justin Thomas Rory McIlroy you are playing together with tiger sitting at twelve to one menu or a tornado wants to beef. Pollard days. Rose and kept god and then Tiger Woods at 25 to one. It's amazing how people still keep putting tiger they don't they do. I did have the leader himself he let the Oprah he didn't let all the Eagles to play at the open but again look if tiger wins is the will be one of the greatest story a couple of times he's not counties I don't think he is either but we will enjoy watching the processor. Meanwhile speaking of the process. Turned twelve today I'll hides well dollar pre season game tonight and we got a lot to look forward to including the spotlight on the top two picks in the draft. Baker mayfield and the browns taking on say Kwon Barkley and the job no oil may feel is gonna get a couple quarters I thought you know that the when the original showing of hard knocks is on for the first time for that week. I'm late for me like you know easy catch the next dance like Carter yes and no you did as well I'm I'm a huge fan hard knocks are I do like the show and it is going to be. The baker mayfield show no no doubt by you gotta feel for Tyrod Taylor a little bit though he is. At this point entrenched as as the starter but mayfield get a couple quarters flywheel Seubert goes on there. And again and see if the browns can get themselves out of the futility of oval life that they live in and for the giant shell. Every time say one Barkley touches the ball I'm sure giant fans are going to be. Unbelievably ecstatic if Syria does it and make sure he gets up after every single play is say quad Barkley with those they quite as object IDs unbelievable. So here's the deal. For the last I think ten seasons we've had at least 13 at quarterback start week we'll one up so. I think the most likely candidates do this this year is it Baker's a judge a tiebreaker Tyrod Taylor is going to start I mean huge I might rescind Arnold Jackson has doubled and tripled down on nationalist Tyrod Taylor completely fall apart he's going to start. I do believe AJ McCarron is going to start a lot of people really hopeful John Allen chose a whole lot he's he's. You know. Picture book of quarterback right the way he looks but you know we had the accuracy issues in college or it was Sam Arnold. Usually you'd be all of a sudden the jets are you opened some trade offers for Teddy Bridgewater it. And Josh McCown a great guy for the our quarterback groomed good quarterback but you're they're kind of waiting for Sam to Arnold. To take it that to -- there they wanted to ever say he took that job correct and that in Arizona it's going to be Sam Bradford until he gets hurt or unless he gets hurt you hope it doesn't get hurt but that's kind of been in them modus operandi men and in Baltimore could be Joseph Flacco went Lamar Jack can be your first rounder well but he's not going to be start we would visit as we're talking about we won here correct correct obviously about. The giants they've never had a rookie rushed for a thousand yards in the season according to the Elias Sports Bureau at 86 seasons. The giants have the most seasons rookie running for a thousand yards since individual stats were first kept. Way back in nineteen and 32. It's amazing that way back united you're right that doesn't do Monroe didn't even start keeping sex until nineteen. 82 ridiculous. I mean how ridiculous that how hard is it count when you sacked quarterback and analyze curator is gonna pass the ball deacon Jones meant he might be did you buy every right as I legal authorities possibly here. Again a thousand yards in sixteen games really quickly out top I had brought you cracked me I think it's about 62 yards and I think it's sixty to seventy sevens when he says 67 I say 62000 who's right. A sixteen games into a thousand yards rushing how many how many yards per game you would need admirable during that off the top or had even though we said there'd be no map but obviously when you're on sun two and a half thank you very much Amish don't. Her. Ever messed with me incident my understanding that there would be no matter. Not that. The amendment which isn't so really lots of fun please she's gives you really gives it we'll get into the later Patrick Holmes did not mean Alex Smith best season he's ever had him seal. Your Abbott fund have a good time. And Patrick has struggled to throw the ball out to the other it's only human is to leave friends and teammates and suffering that reduces don't worry you probably shouldn't worry but. Listen I I will go on record as saying I said this for a while now this to me was and if you move a big time if you move to go to start the Patrick Holmes. Aero beat Alex Smith was coming off his last year yeah 4000 pass. Yards 60% completion ridiculous such interception racial or more on these games in Britain got a lot a little bit later on. Meanwhile heavy schedule some of it's been released and we know when LeBron will return to Cleveland. As they Laker set for November 21 it was announced Wednesday that the lakers will open the season in Portland on August 18. All that Oklahoma opener August 20. Vs the rockets right and then the lakers will also be on the national fellas came on Christmas but it looks like he'll be in Cleveland November 21. SO Christmas they're gonna play goalless and also on Martin Luther King junior day they're gonna play. Gold state as well. In Los Angeles I could what are the more interesting and then as you mentioned November 21 in Cleveland was the beginning of hard knocks. Is they showed domestic take down the LeBron banner you know what your what what's gonna go out there now and let it was hard knocks Lola thought it was done very well yet but just seeing. The guys actually when they were taking down that banner wrong while like deadline up from three Unix or marshalls of this is actually happening act actually going to let this happen and I do I did I should've realized that I did when they took a battered around like. Well covered a whole lot of windows. Whoever had that whoever overhead to look out those windows look into the back of of a poster hopefully get a discount on the left it up and talk about it. Look at those lovely auto more of this so what are the broad that I can't see but trust me it's gorgeous Baird and expect. Jacket and Romo might just LeBron made the switch to LA make the switch brought to buy pencils and medics taking synthetic moral performance to a hello Lou level. Make the switch to pencil synthetics today and as we. You make the switch here we go we've got changes in the NCAA. Top officials with the NBA USA basketball or Mike caught off guard Wednesday. When the NCAA approved changes in its announcement of future rules surrounding pro basketball prospects sources telling you has been essentially night. They're basically saying you can have an agent if you look. If you're not drafted in the in the NBA draft you can come back and play. No penalty there you don't have to sit out or that I that you can't keep your eligibility while there there's a lot to get into Yeltsin went well. What we're well let let's start and let's let's try and do it in and in order. First of former because you your mention that the NBA USA basketball felt blind side of one of the big things for USA basketball. A what they felt blind side and about. Is that they are going to allow. And we were gonna try and make sure we re read separate each of these. Agents for players so what specifically go first to agents for. High school seniors. Because there is gonna be one and done rule at some points of this rule may not even take effect for what two or three years connect yet as far as agents for high school seniors that will only happen once a warning on rule is gone and those players can go right from high school. Back to the NBA so John Calipari who is on sports and LSI's says Rex who waste in Iran abrupt talking about this because it's a couple of years away but. They are significant changes to what we are used to saw I believe they are worthy of talk. So basically the elite high school seniors are going to be allowed to have agent and were USA basketball got caught off guard by the way USA basketball. And the and the NBA didn't meet with the NCAA and discussed some of these changes but what they didn't see coming was. The NCA in this role saying hey USA basketball. You guys are going to decide the ten to fifteen to twenty elite high school players that are allowed to get agents you know you're sick vessels like. Well have the infrastructure to do that the NBA is going to be scouting these players want to allow that to be one of Don let it why we do it. Our USA basketball caught off guard on that one saying. This is not something bigger will do in conjunction with other people but don't solely make this our job to decide to again. Somebody USA basketball doesn't wanted to be them will decide who the ten to fifteen a leaked. High school seniors are going to be once in a one and on rules on. And those players will be allowed. To have an agent. Yeah so that's one part of this the other one back by using his they'll have agents that are sanctioned by the NCAA right what the hell are the NCAA sanctioning the agents and what does the sanctioning process for the NC don't. I they were gonna find all that I think I think. The NCAA is saying were making such a big turn here because. That's been the Bane of colleges existence it is you know is agent showing up on campus. Agents being around high school kids before the one and on rules are there agents could showing up on campus walk guys still have eligibility left so now I think. This is me you know looking into this rule that's all we're doing good we just heard about yesterday is them saying. We're gonna let this happen but we are going to control the process. We're going to control. How good that does the blame them for that they're just saying whatever age you want to show upon our on our a campus. We're going to decide we're gonna we're going to approve view were gonna get you certify they have to be certified no later than August 1. 2000 and warning so baking how to control the narrative of knowing who's going to come out of under their camp. Yeah and here's basically Angela present mark Cameron explaining why these small government. There in general aimed at eliminating some other corrosive influences that we've seen and college basketball but the federal investigation highlighted would try to strengthen the integrity of the game and strengthen the accountability of all of us that work inside the games. And at the same time do that in a way to provide student athletes with much more flexibility and freedom about their decisions whether they're gonna pursue professional sports are amateur sports and to give them a lot more latitude in the way they approach the game and as to help them develop Asia this young man even during their high school years. Heading into college basketball. Okay. I'll decide hot c'mon man. What problem is this solving it is solving the debt dirty issue of players. Going behind the scenes to meet with the agent AJ and sending their runners on campus. Who are young and looked like college students to try and recruit those players. Two going to high school kids homes once a warned on rules got. That they're trying to bring it all polite they okay. Are right it's happening. So we're just gonna bring it all into the light right we're gonna try and control and aired above it. Because it's going to tie in to them what are the next things we're gonna get to is. Or eligibility for the draft what you do I don't wanna bring that I pickers I don't wanna start confusing to. But basically agents are going to be allowed. To represent high school seniors and agents are going to be allowed to represent how alleged players. While there play they have to decide before the season they'll they'll get that that dom that agent. Can help them get ready for the draft will get into a little bit later another part of it is that they don't get drafted they go back to school. But the bottom line is and the first thing I thought Al was you get an agent all of a sudden you're saying. Agent what do agents do agents give money to players correct the agents by the way will be permitted to pay for meals. And transportation for players and their families. During the agent selection process. And for meetings with proteins. If changes are made to existing agent acts and state laws blah blah blah so they're not going to be able at this point you don't read a war whether gonna be able to say. A lot of times you get they've brought the guy some money right that would be a big worry may be mighty you know let me be your age junior fifty G. You know and then what happens if they don't get drafted then there's the on somebody owes them that if the AG's right sold that that third that is not going to be allowed if specifically says what they can pay for. And the agent agreements must be in writing and by the way there will be terminated. When the student who has a high school senior if they enroll in college. That is terminated or they return to college some they were gonna get into that they get an agent. Going to draft don't get drafted come back to college that terminates the relationship with the agent as well Saul. Morning get into but that first part we're talked about is about agent agents will be allowed. 22. Have college athletes' agents will be allowed to represented high school seniors want to one and done rule is gone. So this is going to happen is not going to happen for RO as far as the high school seniors for a little while. But it is going to happen at the NCAA in my opinion trying to say okay we're gonna bring this all polite and we wanted to control the narrative of. The outlook the the most important thing you heard that mark camera theirs when he said well in light of the FBI investigation because let's let's just be honest about this. If that FBI investigation wasn't gonna let candlelight none of noticeably going around of this by the way that's not all none of it wait till about October lol I think you may start target some more info on all the FBI stuff that's happened to hand over the hammerhead exact in October attributed guillotine on summon their ground for sure on -- said mistresses are there are go for scissors glue it together but just let's be honest about this this is the problem with the NCAA. They're not progressive they're reactionary. Instead of taking action they wait till somebody else take Jackson and then they do something the other read it to make it look like they're breaking a bit Jessica what are the other big things are during that were gonna do intuit has to do with the player declaring for the draft or through the draft process through the draft. And then still coming back to school which sounds great on paper. But I can lead to some problems as well logistically it's a big issue and the other thing which they didn't address and we get into this a little bit later. They just didn't do the easy single ball yet players can make money off their snow I don't think they're better than we are ready to propose that would be the easiest thing in the world there were ready to walker Merrill were ready to go there yet and instead they're just a well lighted this thing that we had no idea what's happening. What do you make all these changes. Go with the window. Great way to go unlike sports scene here. What are you looking forward to tonight. In the twelve games in the NFL pre season we wanna hear from you. But now it's time for straight talk brought to buy straight talk wireless has phones best networks no contract. Full mershon. Right now in the NFL pre season yeah we had a hall of fame game but now everybody's gonna get their first game and we have twelve games tonight and running through them quickly. Rams ravens at the bills bears ankle bookstore opened browns giants Steelers Eagles saints jaguars Redskins patriots titans Packers Texans chiefs. And cowboys and 49ers colts and Seahawks so as we look at these games again. The most meaningless thing ever is the final score over priciest. What matters is certain positions on certain teams how players react either on a new team for the first time running back for injury. Or rookie so what are some of the things that you're going to be looking towards tonight. Well I mean is certainly the rookies how they acclimate themselves and how they look again I am not worried at all about stats yeah I could especially with the quarterbacks I do not grow here. What they're stats are. I wanna see how other surveying. Opry snapped I wanna see them right at pull snapped a wanna see how they conduct themselves in the pocket PV escape too early. You know are they standing in there when they escape and they still looking downfield throw to run. How there throw point are they sort of for forget again the incompletion to completions on the throne to the right person and making the right read. These are all the things are running backs they hit the hole these dancing too much you know they compress whole look at the costs back they go to eastern western set in north and south. You don't pass rushers too many move one move know how owners. You know offensive lineman Hauser feed Hauser hands mean that there there are so already things I looked for as a former player and our guess I guess who would be an analyst for the but then there yes you are an analyst then there's the overall. Of your starters out there. That basically you just hold your breath as a fan and as a player to get up after replaying get out unscathed regarding had I think eleven kick a were at eleven I think AQ Shipley was the eleventh it's a senator for the part of your Laura cargoes are for real eleventh ACL in camp alone. We haven't even had a full slate of pre season games so more common. That that the damned this thing right there is when you when you. Lose some of for the season for that but. This is this is part of its so there's that. And then there is the new as you mentioned the new players. I'm really just at a guy like Jarvis slandered. Related reception but did have a whole lot of yards on appeal when it was made him a shadow so can that be a difference in Cleveland you know make him more catches and do more things with the ball after catch itself. How does as you mentioned the new player. Fit in with that that team and their situation and then there is truly the back half of roster. Me just say this upfront and every team is different but every team for the most part. There are gonna know who paid good chunk of their roster is going to be already there and outside of injury they know. And it's getting there are some teams that no more than others but. Good sharp already decided already done. And the rest are going to be made up of guys that are going to be playing in the third fourth quarter. So while a lot of people won't step and watched that that for those guys is their livelihood this is where they're pretty good on tape to either. Play for the team thereof or have tape that shows for other teams that they can go to they don't make this team so it is amazing. The amount of different things. That or grow lawn because the starters had the anticipation of playing and being done. Those guys try to make the team they acted not go walking warm up. And then six. Sit for the first half some said all the way to the fourth quarter before they finally get their chance to play in anticipation of finally getting on the field so. In a locker room at an early pre season game is an unbelievable place to be. Depending on your situation right when I was a rookie years and now I broke my ankle while wasn't playing but then the next show when I was really my first year. That anticipation. To a year or you know my war my later years in Philly or our secure on that team. And how you treat the situation it's nice day yeah it is absolutely night and day. Well think about later glad you brought that up last year had a 112 receptions sort of PPR Leo welcome. 900 Newsom and now it's it's almost impossible to have over 110 catches and not have a thousand receiving so. Woolsey about what baker or whoever's going to be catching balls from time how much he plays whether or not that field stretches for a little bit. We alluded to this a little bit in the previous segment I'll tell you. I'm more curious about Patrick Holmes and beat anybody else that's playing tonight because the rookies are going to be the rookies Agassi some. Ups and downs he got a start under his belt last year media final game of the regular season. Any beat the Denver Broncos he became the first quarterback drafted. By the Kansas City Chiefs to win a game for the Kansas City Chiefs. Since Todd black what time who was drafted in 1983 as a quarterback. And they were they were ready just say Alex. Greatest season of real life you were fantastic. Get out of here and everybody has been drooling over Patrick grant your RO Lewis Redick has been all in on the high. Patrick Holmes and the potential is there you see it. Might he has horrible you scroll bar and season earned. Ranking there is one as we talked about one big twelve quarterback after another after those who put a great numbers in college you come to a league in not yet and sell. I enough to say this is a trend more than a singular thing that doesn't mean. It can't happen correct. And I love the way the kid threw the ball colleges well I'm. So every throw and saw it was electric and I have a lot of respect for Andy Reid as a coach and and evaluate so they jumped way up together and so I get that I just. Boy oh boy to oust a guy who has just had his best year and it's such a it great leader in Alex Smith just kissed by the way he conducts his business here I know is that that's screaming rock our rock guy but just by the way conducts his business. You say were ready to move on from your even though you're coming off. Your best year that to me it was a chance that obviously they're willing to take so you're right that is while he is not a rookie that is certainly someone to keep and I. I meant to sit in the bears mr. Bruschi coming back for a second year. A whole bunch of new wide receivers you know around and hopefully healthy O line in front of them do they take. Another step or they are playoff worthy Timor's it's still. You guys hold out little bit you got there Rogers that's come back you don't agree day you have Minnesota's most people think the best team in that division Detroit. Can't really figure them out they they seem like they can be explosive candy they don't ever running game haven't had one forever so. I did that there are great questions obviously in every division with every team you're not getting all your answers tonight but at least you start to get a glimpse. Of what you can get and that's what you see is a fan you'll get a glimpse of minister okay give my guys about the field because in the end of the day it means absolutely nothing. Nothing so get your plays and get you sweat and they get done. And again just just so people understand. What Kansas City decided he's not the sexiest quarterback out there I understand that. If you're gonna say oh look what happened once again they could win a playoff game. Well couple things up for stratus Kelsey got knocked a yes there. And they decided they they as a as a coaching staff nagging and Andy Reid decided to stop running the football now locked there locked their earlier and that we're there with you Kelly yet ready for on the defense of side yes I just I just never understood that playoff loss of that to the titans why they stopped giving the ball to Kareem offer that back in that game is just avail and I figured all but again 4000 passing yards completed 68% of his throws and there was this is employed bold on the field last year more than he ever had before. 26 touchdown passes and only five Anderson out you could say he was risk averse to say all those things. Those are winning numbers at the quarterback position and you couldn't get rid of him fast enough of this pre season is very important. It's very important for Patrick whose quick about it. The from Alex Smith sighed and and in San Fran our colleague Catherine baker Yuri to get rid of ballots in the same thing in Kansas City and Turkey over and over again dude did you got to keep proving yourself probably the one tonight. Everyone's looking forward to a most of these pretty obvious it's Andrew Luck you know missed so much time and now. You know to to get out there and just unleashed that's a joy to see you wanna see him just uncorked one yup to join you wanna see that deep out route. You know or he's got to just fired out to the sideline on that out rob that's one of the that that's got to be on ought amid a bomber get to air it out and you'll get that archive no I mean you've got a zip like a fifteen yard. You just uncork it and diplomats and everybody's waiting to see him. And again our good friend Herman Edwards as soon as he heard about that surgery from Andrew Luck. That I had the same thing with Chad Pennington it was over a year and quite frankly he was never the signal so we'll see you hope that's not the case for Andrew Luck. Quite frankly he's also going up against Seattle what is Seattle right that's a completely different dornin in a boom that's for sure it's just it will here's the legion of boom turned to do. Now that's sort of what it is right now with Seattle they have completely remade their identity and they're trying to find a new one.

You've got a really really good lap out of David Ortiz as he joins us now a golden window this morning David lash of the Red Sox won the division mated to the post season but they fired their manager John Farrell. They bring in our score this year and my goodness it is taken off are you surprised that they've had this much more success. With the essentially the same team in just a change of manager. Big questions are law and article are confident. I would I would want my teammate. Do you order. Gave the world we played together. I think third straight they seem to like other wars. Palladium manager and and a very good displays was when he bought them plane and remember these two going to mean many.

In all that time and specifically David on the field. What's been the biggest difference in the actual game of baseball on the field from when you've gotten to league to a new life. And other democratic continues through Europe. The what is going on in the game right now this debate that I ever seen. You know beat you more IA. De La see I mean. Cheating later disputed game and ended in and spend a Kuwaiti Amir big guy. Our. Going home tomorrow and how were we we did that bridge to move it move changes it was last year and here Kyra that song didn't. They. The beginning of my career improvement smoker in years I don't remember. Seemed did blow blow blow match. We're not only live and then also like I was working Shonn do today it. Including newsletter are they blew up Oklahoma roommate. I don't remember. Seemed all of them before so. Would you let that get below do you mean and I mean big game is in this Tuesday. Ever being. Wells missed we're certainly seeing a lot of that is David Ortiz three time World Series champion is with us on behalf tops what they you know you don't like about the game right now is the shaft. Earlier this year he said the ship took away like 500 hits from you when you cannot sympathize with Bryce Harper arm do you think the shift should not be a part of baseball. It is it has got to a point where it is our control we are those who you'd like these you can every veteran. And I understand that I need to be easier to do. That guy right there boom you know. Or do directory and almost died there. I like to see dead people Arabs. I would like to see another person getting to go on new brood sheer. It is but I didn't arm bar of the game has been taken away later. Not gonna be modest recovery group Oregon and asserted blew it certainly want a little and didn't know what pretty decent. It's about. You know saying and an end end end with a gain a bigger gain so would it. Favorite all along those lines do you judge you're likely to see players hit for average as well. Shouldn't the answer to this being. Learned to hit. Opposite field learned to hit away from the shift I mean in several home run or strike out Rivera Marty shifting one way try and learn to hit the ball the other way. The ones digger while indirect and so. You heat basic human nature. That he didn't feel they didn't. It's not boasting diabetes. I. People king used learn it like like everybody is everybody have a long way you do it. They need the murder what he birdied two. Sometimes like. You would mean personally I hope void in my career from all the work you use handout like visual way to me. So Diane that you're like okay uncomfortable about or didn't do that speech away. Both product and Bluetooth and good. Mean he utilized. I had to do something different one get that it is. Maybe didn't did it cost the global war on manner maybe there where are the wood and Williams saying I win the nomination do you definitely do it. There's this guy. We'll be able to drive it was that big in the middle of the keys in the third. You don't saying oh. That is learning how to keep the ball left to seal Ben it's not sort of root. I need to spend on that I got to deploy them where. He banged bit lonely I deploy and but I can adjust some and so. Do you deputy. And I heard oh yeah. I automotive and I can tell you it I don't know whether accusers. War breaks and we mean because they know ball put my hand you won't. We data that is so. You noted that it is it is open to disobey god I wish. So. That's why having it in India it would assume we're to assume that you can get everybody. They're not wrong and they're getting heated here's. I didn't tell you that right now that are not belong on that he needed to do it so it could easily become a list of Britain's. Not understand what you're saying but of course if it's open you'd love what I tried just take where the guy isn't so bad but I I hear what you're saying absolutely. As David Ortiz is what has three time World Series champ he tells what you're doing. With the talks home run challenge in the first pitch contest. What are your goal. Out of date the border be able to rule in distorted. Gays are. Don't talk injured being you know I've heard from Sandra in car. We kid him in his own agenda. But he went so hopefully you right in of them out there and into tomorrow. That is the plan indeed and you had a lot of fun when you play Dave we appreciate you being with us this morning thanks so much thanks David. Remark dire. It was all sort of one big Jaya jello mold very interest in where that went. As more what we expected bell revote what's gonna happen all we can we are delighted to be joined by rich murder from the Golf Channel. A problem of temple university and the pride of Allentown Pennsylvania and a major guy as sees a major do that and more acres before it's ready to go our way. I'm doing great life and trade could be W trending year old stomping grounds so I'm in Saint Louis yes or yes there. I had done. Each of the other night by the way does it in crossed squares not a friend and talked cardinal baseball with. Cargo bay. Into an usher at Busch Stadium. They're forever and he actually has usher Schmidt. It was due to increased shorts again never I didn't know there with a category a comedy but you're doing our mr. Schmidt or being. What a great now and all debit card the card you're I mean trait the crowds are bad neck and that year I. It it was in seeing. Availability they love their golf for its there's no question about that yeah and down so the question I have for you it's obviously you've had four majors in four weeks and one of those was at Carnoustie where it's the exact opposite of what we're seeing. In Saint Louis will all this rain this how soft this this course can play how how far under par we think of this thing could get this week. I mean ironically. I think somebody could challenge a non. That's a couple of days yeah I'll possible it's possible. This is quite a target ball. Taylor made the hard ball long ball hitter. And I just went back to what one of the caddies told me that notion Akaka the US so we're talking about court shut up and how you hat trick it up. If you're going to keep this scorching round argued says will simply cannot contain these players connect registered good. It's it's far. And that the top three favorite big hitters Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy how much trouble. Can they be and if they're just a third hit a long but off the pharaoh what was that like all trees last week when we're looking at now. Yeah I mean it streak going but but not a ton of trouble here. And effectively the fairway to wider because ball's not rolling out. So you mean this is tailor made. Taylor made a roaring back like. News warned most of the majors on wet saw golf courses. Almost every hole was a dogleg left so perfectly Rory draws a golf ball. So did you look at. Rory McIlroy. I think you'll vote adjustments on the obviously. He preached red hot. You shoot high it's wherever really compete I think that's what's moss. When looking at honest. He's got big stones and human being who really likes it like a moment. In six of eight with a 54 hole lead. And by the way. This is the guy who was not that long ago known as Jordan's body yet he's he's warned. A cinched Jordan last win at. Justin won five times. Eight wins over the last two years I mean nobody nobody at war. It can really go OK so so with that in mind obviously those guys are. Where a lot of eyes will be looking. We've sort of adopted Tony fee now on the show have to what I did at the masters. Dislocating his ankle out of a hole in one and still had a top ten finish out and he's he played pretty well at the US open played OK Carnoustie. What do we think of Reno's chances on a course that it may be set up for him as well with the conditions. Well the good Tony hit some slight cut you know good boys are writing between the Al strike let out and that's huge issue I totally believe that there will be the ones. The oddsmakers have the wouldn't warned kind of popular sort of but he's longshot there are these the only player this year you have talked until all three majors the usual Tony you can eat. Not what a lot. Are you know. She's law. What it's used in guidance and polished to a game. He's a wonderful young man and a nicest guys you'll ever meet the sport. We're kids go to fairly young agent late twenties. He's 'cause you know Jabari Arco valid Chicago Bulls. It is an extraordinary. Aptly Tony got massive and can dunk a basketball. What do we do you like him personally I'd like to win that. Our. But by. I'd if you have a bit forty to one run would have on with it and no he didn't. Even explosive tell it to work ever a kind of a short backswing are really good player to watch. Also ally Gertz are joining us on the shell Pennzoil performance like tiger or you mentioned odds Tiger Woods 25 to wonder how does tiger little bit into. This course the weather conditions and how he's playing. Yeah until around my car. This is his fortune to bet he has not played this kind of up. Reasonably full schedule. In five years. You know the church the church's building after he went poorly in the week in the Firestone is certainly Clinton's fatigue a little bit I'm I'm not sure. About that. That means. 42 almost 43 in December. I'm I would say I don't love tiger right now they're just a little something missing. But what not long ago yet the lead at the open at Carnoustie. Is the mission there is that accordance with the practical course you could sort of laid back. Play conservatively. An eight under was the winning score. My question would be does. Tiger had twenty under in his mid eighteen under you know. This is this is there a make birdies in bunches we will show it it appears. I'm not should work that should guard that we are right now. Well he has looked the one thing he hasn't shown yet rich in this comeback is the ability to close there were several times this year. We're old tiger would have found a way to win or the old the older tiger now old tigers having problems weather was at the Honda the Valspar we saw what happened at bay hill what are her attention for awhile minute you open. That's not that's the last piece of the puzzle sometimes that's the hardest war. It is. Which is strange that sale would guidance or words you know Bruce shooter pure cardinals got my New York was an all time no doubt about it guy and others. A bit of doubt surrounding target I don't know their tuitions this is a different tiger. This has not find tiger and he's been through a lot. Emotional trauma a physical pain. This surgery and so. That the second issue is should play against guys Schwartz 1520. Years younger. And while they respect him a promise you they do not you can all the way. Players want it. The aura of intimidation is he's gone but that's says that he keeps you know. We all kind needle moved here they don't think he is the needle. I mean the crowds following tiger on in Scotland. Of word. They were up charts they won't be again this week when people hear it straight boot and get a chance to hydrogen calculating the danger. When the BMW two so. In an appetite for bold. In terms of the Paula put in in terms of his ability to draw people and an audible small part. Or there's no question about that and what he'll move the needle if he's just anywhere around 567 strokes and leave it to right rich. With the way this course is playing you're gonna have to make a lot hospital birdies for that to be the case rich always good to catch W bar man enjoy Saint Louis and have a great time a bell respect hurts. Or might certainly ought. It's not expect too much there's only one person out there that expect him way too much part of this guy surely we know that is they did it bother. Computer execute twelve point four. Optimizing algorithm running encryption package helped goodnight tonight. I don't feel so good at what what is a computer is it hard to hear it feels hot in here. I feel a little clip of me I should lie down or something a computer with a virus. Surprising what's not surprising how much you could see it by switching to go back up those oysters Rockefeller or a mistake Geico. Fifteen minutes could save you 15% or more. All doing your would you ESP radio ESPN news I'm a little disappointed that they didn't get Tommy rotten moonshine in that region troopers bombing Iraq was how Iraq still want them came out of nowhere right Eminem for poppycock via. Laughed about lather clap trap. Moonshine and do go scum did I did not seek Tommy noticed did not see. Some Iraq sounds like something on a really hot day you I got to anybody Tommy can't really enjoy that now what happens that'll Tommy Tommy are up three Mattel has never run and other places and Tommy routes are good for you okay so we said we have twelve pre season games coming up right. Many interest ones including the saints take on the Jacksonville Jaguars beat things expected opposite the jags. Up but all saints' side. You know one of the big surprises last year was out of Camaro running back taken in the third round who absolutely lit it up as a dual threat I don't think you can look at Alfonseca. You're going to be a Bellwether guy you're gonna carry the rock twenty point five times a game. But as a change of pace guy and a guy that can catch the ball out of the backfield he is a very explosive weapons yes yes and he's very confident in his abilities. He's also very confident in his teams have been yes he has and he has a long memory. He still has not gotten overt. The Minnesota mirror nori is not a game where obviously case genome it's upon big so for the first walk off touchdown as time expired. On NFL postseason history. So he was recently asked it and did an interview where he made it very clear he still not over that game here's what he said Alvin Camaro of the saints. We beat up blank out of the Ingles 'cause we was Roland if we wanna get to Minnesota. I knew nobody was gonna stop us 'cause we came all the way back. We know the standard is so yeah out F Minnesota. All or like that out and Tamara Alvin blob blob blob. Lather Tommy riot clad crowd while John iiroc moonshine knowing care Ers no one cares that you had to say about that you lost. Deal whether it easy to say we did beat them where to be this matter I I should of one in my state high school wrestling way back in high school I think I could Awad who cares. You know I just a lot on air my friend is worth about did you guys got a heck of a team they do get there this year you know what you didn't do last year. You didn't get there yeah I mean his life like so we'd beat the blank out of the Eagles. If we had one. I knew always it was Elvis but Georgia did it. Knew and when did. And blah blah blah blah blah yeah. How how covenants in your ability Jawad I hate that we would all he has seen me through every player in the league you're saying that norm right now blob blob blah blah blah yeah by the way all of you know that the the interesting thing this one of the most interest things this season man. There are at least five teams that are convinced in the NFC there loans or yeah absolutely convinced yet the Eagles are the defending champs. You have the rams who have made a lot of moves they think they're all in. You have New Orleans who thinks they can do what they did you don't go and use you certainly have Minnesota I mean there's at least form. Maybe even a couple others that they take. We have everything their brakes are way you know and a lot of one of the big things as injuries which makes the eagle for even more amazing because they lost their Grassley of their quarterback and their best office in London and their best alignment. And still won won the Super Bowl so. Yeah I eight words in the AFC is certainly seems like it just a couple of teams in the NFC. Like a handful of team did you see this thing about the betting favorite to in the defensive player of the year. Idea is that this is this a little yachts and it's marvelous for ended the top four players. One is coming back from missing the season. The other limped off the field a few days ago and the other tour hold off right now not even on the field. You're betting favorite at this point as JJ watt you know coming off some some next couple years right up. Next up is Jorge Posada who had a foot injury one weapon off the field right. Amanda coming in analog and it's true in that tied for third. -- dollar coal Mac who are trying to drool have doing contracts. Right now our rights of a few had to put some of your money. On one of those four guys which will detect. I've probably go with Aron Donald L again. As little more help on that the line with with sue there's still has rockers. JJ watt I mean boy you just want to be healthy. Right that that's the thing I mean look both who's got a nice guy on the other side in anger among them what I water outside Russia that they could have and JJ does have clowning whose final sort of Colin become Al player thought it was going to be does what you're right. You know I'm just sort of holding. My breath with JJ is much in the same way I'm holding with Andrew Luck now we know when they're healthy they're terrific event at my concern is his JJ has put amiga. I've done some things with the Super Bowl a couple years ago when you know he had them. That's what hit the growing thing and I just bet against them isn't because of their plan know this because there injures throes of a top four after that. It's next at nine to one as Von Miller. Jalen Ramsey of fourteen to one and then three players high the next looped you through Cameron Jordan to Marcus Lawrence. And that one big year you have got are very poor Ben Chandler Jones Kayla the last Campbell what's are taught miles Garrett. And Harrison Smith the third. Safe six.
