Sports at 15 and 45 powered by maximus. Moving people and technology forward. Ten 45 to Dave Johnson. All right, now listen, maybe you've seen it. There's that show Ted Lasso. It's an Apple plus and we live on Ted Lasso philosophy. You know what the happiest animal on earth is? It's goldfish. You know why? No, got a ten second memory. Be a goldfish. That's good advice, the live like a goldfish with a ten second memory. Well, of course, that is the voice of Ted Lasso. And he coaches in that series. If you're not familiar with an English soccer team named AFC Richmond. Now, there is a real pro soccer team in Richmond, Virginia. So natural. The Richmond kickers want the Ted Lasso show to come to Richmond. The kicker's president rob you crop. But we're open to any possibility, whether we have to kick around in the AFC Jersey. Maybe we can figure that out or it would be great to have some of the stars of the show to come out here in Richmond and find some autographs and talk about the show and just talk about how soccer is a world game in a World Cup year and how it just brings people together. And the other thing they can offer Ted Lasso coffee instead of tea. You know, I always figured that tea was just gonna taste like hot brown water. And you know what? I was right. They're serious about this. The Virginia tourism commission, Virginia film office, they are pitching it to inviting the cast and crew of Ted Lasso to Richmond. We'll keep you posted. The oils in Blue Jays rained out last night, the Orioles and rays are tied in that crazy wild card race. The Orioles in Boston tonight. The cubs and reds, it will be the field of dreams game tonight and dyersville, Iowa, and the reds will wear the throwback uniforms of the 1919 World Series when they had the winner of the Chicago black Sox that ghosts were featured in the film field of dreams, which was released in 1989 to make you feel old.
