Him a little bit later a here's, a text from the two to five Bro. Horrible without you, actually called the station to check on your current employment, situation LL glad you're back we missed you Yeah well if you call it a check on my employment situation here I'm not sure are you gonna. Talk to, and I'd be worried about who you talk, to. Because some people may may tell you different stuff on that but anyways let's. Get. To what I. Did on Saturday And it was. On my, bucket list for years and years and years To go watch a professional boxing max You know some rag tag. Semi pro. Boxing match in some dingy, Jim somewhere, I'm talking about big time boxing match and I wanted to do here, in New Orleans since I was. Here but they just haven't had, anything, there was no big time, major boxing mid championship level event here. New Orleans since two thousand and two I was talking to Andrew Lopez dot com out here. At the law school fight on Saturday he, was telling us that when it's true so it'd been what. A decade and half since that, happened, so it was the local kids Ruger ru Regis.

Actual fan so when I'm covering the saints or LSU or, any big, time basketball event. Pelicans almost all the time I'm there I'm sitting in the media box I'm working I can't be a fan focusing on other. Stuff this is one of the rare times but relatively few times here in the city able to attend a major sporting in in the city spe- fan And we were on the floor and I'm hope ESPN and I hope boxing officials were watching what happened there, at the lakefront arena because it was almost sold out the sections that they had open it was allowed people were dancing cheering having fun it was. Incredible it was absolutely incredible it's something I'd one or two for very long time and to say it's exceeded my. Expectations would be a disservice because..
