Super Bowl, Kyle, Peter Akal discussed on SI Media Podcast
Peter akal, it goes back and forth. I'm the most pleasant one. So Jamie can have her days to, but as Peter a Kyle, and I'm the pleasant one, the peacemaker solved. One of those two know that you can count and bank it of which one is going to be. I will say it always comes from a good place. Those two work their ass off to make sure that it's a very good show each and every day. Abbott Meyer that both of them will say how hard they go to make sure we put a good product on air. What was it like for you the first time you're in the studio and Kyle did angry runs? It's not only doing it as him trying to catch his breath as he's finishing. I get legitimately nervous. I'm like, he's coming to the table and he's like, Peter, you got it. We got Derrick Henry. I'm just like, is he a pass out? Do we need to go? So it is so impressive. People don't realize as Kyle's doing angry ones. There's no prompter that he's reading from. He has a card with maybe 5 words written down. And he's able to reference things and go from this to that. That was the biggest thing I took away of coming and working with these three every single day of seeing how talented they each are at whatever it is they're crafted as Peters or relationship building, has reporter and journalist I like we'll have a discussion and I'll say something. And before I can finish, he's already thrown a question back at me to challenge whatever it is that I'm coming up with. And then Jamie's ability to just keep it all under control for hard appropriate is going a mile a minute of getting it all in and make sure everybody's on the same point. Like she said, she's like the point guard where it's around the back pass is no votes and everything. So I think as a player you go in and you're just like, these people just sit in front of a camera and just make stuff up and then you get in there and you get to see the nuances and how talented each member is really cool to see. Before I let you go, give me a Super Bowl prediction. Super Bowl projection. I am going with the San Francisco forty-niners against the Kansas City Chiefs going to be a rematch of a few years ago and I am going to say Shanahan finally gets his Super Bowl. I just came up with that and you put me on the spot so I may change it tomorrow on the show and we'll see. You know what I like about this year is I feel like these are the four best teams. Sort of always rises to the top. And it's crazy. I don't know if you pay attention to the betting odds at all and the betting world, but the odds right now for those four teams to win the Super Bowl. There's not a big difference between one through four. So it tells you how close everything is, which I think is great. For the next couple of weeks. Yeah, for sure. Jason really appreciate it. Enjoy the conversation. And now will you do any do you have any more radio games or you're done for this season? The wild card was my last month. He had joined the games from my couch.

All right, joining me now as he does every week for our train of thought segment from WFAN radio and S and Y TV in New York. My buddy saw the as we prepare for the last real weekend of the football season before the fake game for the fake fans. Sal, how's it going? I always say the same thing. It's a glorified exhibition game. It means the most, but it's a glorified exhibition. Essentially football season's over. I mean, that's it. There's three games left. It's over. Yeah, to me it's over after Sunday, so. We have a lot. I have a lot of topics here. I'm gonna start with the dumbest topic first because it's so ridiculous, it's not even with disgusting but for you, you'll get rolled up and I might say something, but I'm just gonna say two words. I'm just gonna say two words and I'll let you go and then I'll go. Scott rolling? What are we doing? What are we doing? What are we doing? I love it, but I hate it. It's the same thing every year. But it's fun. It's fun to discuss everything. He shouldn't be in the Hall of Fame. You want to know it, you know, you can talk about who's in. It's twofold, right? It's who's been getting in and who's not getting in. But it's at least fun, I guess, to vent at least once a year on it. I'm a hypocrite because I've always said, I always say the same thing every year. If you get worked up about the Hall of Fame, you're an idiot. At this point now, it's like it's a fake thing. It's ridiculous. It's a museum. Don't get worked. Don't get worked up over who is in and out. What does piss me off though is because we're in this ridiculous time where you're not allowed to say anything and Twitter and this and that. Like if you say that Scott, you don't think Scott Roland should be in the Hall of Fame. And forget not he shouldn't be anywhere and he shouldn't be allowed to see if Cooper's town. Brennan, oh, you're raining on his parade. You're shitting on his moment who are you to say, why? Listen, this is sports. We're allowed to analyze sports. We're allowed to say this was a good game. This was a bad game. This was a good play. This was a bad play. So if you have this building that has become completely meaningless and a complete joke, you're allowed to say whether you think the guy should be in. So, you know, I get a God forbid you say anything negative about it. Everyone sensitive and all that. But I mean, what are we doing? Yeah, he was a good player for a long period of time. He's not Hall of Fame. But it's not him. He's not the problem. It's the people who are voting that are the problem. It's the whole process that is a problem. The idea that's got roll on his first ballot can be a 10% guy and then all of a sudden get in years later, it just does not make any sense. There's no logic to it. I don't want to hear about the different stats that they use, the different writers, the different people on the ballot, the whole thing is flawed. And the reason why we care is because that was the one sport that we gave a crap about their Hall of Fame. For years, going up. That's why it matters. I don't care about the football Hall of Fame or the best. It can say anything about it. Baseball used to mean something and it said that year after year it continues to be a problem.
