Okay. You know what, right now, misses Driscoll, my 9th grade English teacher is clotting her way out of the grave. She's very like there is a beehive hairdo and some bony arms we have big old flaps used to hang from. And she's get her over here. Oh, no. She died a few years ago at the age of a 123. Two roads day 30 yellow wood, misses Driscoll. You see how many of these owners did you shit bags? I'm like, all right, I'll give you an example. Cam Newton gets drafted 2011. And Jerry Richardson, the owner of the team, gives him this lecture about you're representing the team, so he don't want any tattoos and piercings and don't want to like basically just basically said, I want you to act as much like me as possible. Don't be yourself. And I was like, what? Who are you? When we find out that guy was a complete like creepy ledger's it's gone back, but he's a billionaire. And so if you go by the logic of a lot of NFL owners out of the 32 shitty people, yeah, I'm with that and probably some racist among them and whatever. But universally they want to win. If you take the same thing and apply to baseball, the best players in baseball, over the history, they weren't the best managers ever. Yeah, the best managers were the guys who sat on the bench. They were the backup catchers. And the benchwarmers, a different skill set to a different interests, I think. Well, and when it comes to coaching, again, if you get all the way to 1988, at some point, these sports would catch up as far as their personnel. I think the NFL is 61 to 70% black. Black players. That's a commensurate with whatever you want to put on in the field. But and baseball's been doing this for years and years taking people from all different countries and trying to best guy get for the job gets the job. But when it comes to managing, if you look through the list of managers, most successful managers, they largely weren't stars as players. True. That's the logic of because they play the game well that they should be able to coach it well. Yeah, but they weren't nobody was getting opportunities. That's the point. Nobody was getting the opportunity and when you look at the fact, hey, the best guys that are doing this for black, but we can't trust them to coach. It was that mindset. Same thing with quarterbacks and no black quarterbacks. It took a long time for these weird outdated. Where's the last guy the kick field goals that was black? I mean, there's a couple in the league right now, but for decade after decade after death, and what happened to fullbacks? They used to have full backs in the NFL. You know what? The passing rule opened up and somebody had to go, you're adeno wide receiver to virtually every down so you're going to get rid of, you know, my last guy was James Devlin, Jimmy neck roll. And I'm okay with Jakob Johnson, the German. I'm sure you're German audience. You have voluminous audiences. I had Michael hawley on my do your pod. That's my podcast. And everywhere you can find podcasts. I've been on that podcast. And he reminded me that we had a conversation on the air where I was like, we still on the black quarterback thing. Is that still a conversation or can we just look around the league and say there's lots of them there's lots of successful ones or are we still like judge and like, well this is a historic moment because such and such a black quarterback and he reminded me, you know it's still a conversation and he had examples of it. I'm like, because you know when the first black quarterback in the first black head coach were in the NFL. The 1920s, Fritz Pollard. Wow. Remember two years last year Belichick was wearing like a Fritz Pollard's name on his. Really? Sweatshirt or whatever? Yeah. That's the cat underpants from the 70s. Different, different person. Yeah, no. It wasn't like did you show Fritz the cat movie at the theater? They do so in every X rated movie you could have imagined at the Manchester twin cinema. New England's number one adult motion picture theater house. I'm still going to write that screenplay. I'm telling you right now there's a HBO series in this. People used to come in and say they'd say. Do you have popcorn? Of course we do it. They go. I've done a Goodfellas meets boogie nights. Yeah. Meets. It was the 70s, right? It sure was. Yeah. Well, into the 80s. It's burgundy because you were on TV at the time. That's that's my elevator private parts. You need that other element because at the same time he's doing all that he's on TV. He had a radio girl. When I replaced Howard Stern in 1980, I had that movie theater. When I went on a channel three and Hartford as the sports anchor, I had that movie theater. And it was a glorious era. Great time to be alive. And there are multiple stories. None of which there are far too long. These stories put a Debbie do in the sequel. Dallas? Yeah, this is. Oh, she did Denver. Debbie does Denver. You know what that just felt like a money grab. Nobody ever watched him. Nobody ever watched the plots didn't matter. Except for garage girls. That was a great porn flick. All the lube and stuff in it. So now, I'd like to change the subject just briefly. Have you seen the neuro commercial? Have you seen it on TV? It's on incessantly. Is that a birth control for women? I have seen the ad yes. They tend to repeat. They play the ad 15 second advertising and they play the same 15 second ad right after. It's like, did you get the message first time? No, here it is again. And they shove this norex commercial at you. Now, Scott Debbie does Dallas part two. Oh, of course. And then part three the final chapter because there was still parts of that story that they hadn't really at the time. Yeah, there were so many so many loose ends, but if you didn't see the first two no. The third one is just her career wound down as soon as she got less photogenic in the last one she did was Debbie does deely Plaza. She only won that no one ever saw. Norex. Yeah, there was a second Gutman in that one as Erika. He was on the grassy Knoll is a shooter anyway. Yeah. Well, you remember the, you remember the commercials about with Michael Jordan and Larry Bird, you know, off the backboard through the hood into the thing all these crazy shots. Do you know what Lee Harvey Oswald? Said to Michael Jordan, holy grass you know. Oh no. What did he say? He said, I thought window. Through the Knoll through the governor. Nothing but neck. I'm sorry. Back to Norwich. People on these commercials. And I'm thinking, as I'm looking at him, with all due respect, these women talking about birth control and what I'm saying, oh, I just get a sense right to my house. And she was hideous. And then the other girl, oh, the old fashioned way of getting her standing in line. And this lady had like nose rings and eyebrow rings and a hair, a bandana on and she was wearing a thick flannel shirt. I think Randy woman. So what do you need birth control for? Seriously. I mean, I know you're kidding because there she is..
