"Will. Speaking of cop, Tom, you'll be in LA Sunday for niners rams. Big game for the niners because they're currently in that 6 seed. But they go with Trey Lance this week, but it's got to be exciting for the week 17 first year. You get a game like that where there's a lot on the line there. Fox on four 25 Sunday. I think what Al said. This is finishing my first full season here with America's game of the week in the late window and when Fox has the double header. But I think Al said it perfectly at the very beginning, which is when you get to that last week and you have for either team when you have a clear playoff ramification when and you're in, that's just a really exciting juice to be a part of. And the niners have a lot Jimmy swirling around them. Who is going to ultimately play the quarterback position in this game. Obviously, when it's division rivals, when they have a history and how the seeding could ultimately line up that some people have already looked and seen, could we see Brady and Jimmy G, could that be a potential but there's just a lot out there where we're really excited for this one Sunday. Now you have a play in game. I mean, you basically have a playoff game with chargers raiders. Have you seen this crazy thing about if the colts lose at 1 o'clock, they both get in with a tie? Yeah. Well, I keep thinking about it. Staley said the Chargers coach. Oh no, no, no. He wouldn't even think about anything like that. I'm sure Rishi besides who feels the same way. I think back to the Herm Edwards line, several years ago. You play to win the game. You don't play to tie the game. I can't see that happening. Tell me, the game's in Vegas Sunday Night. What has his Vegas? Are they all in on the Raiders? Are they rabid about the NFL and the Raiders are in Vegas? Because I just, you know, there's so much to do in Vegas. I could see a sports team sort of, you know, maybe not. And it's such a big tourist place, but go ahead, give me a little. First of all, the hockey team is crazy. I mean, they love because Vegas has a lot of transplants. A lot of people grew up in other places, right? And of course, Vegas has a ton of stuff to do. But you can't go to the show. You can't go to the casino every night. So you have sports. And with the Raiders in particular, tons of people fly in from the Bay Area from Los Angeles, listen to the 12 or 13 seasons here. So you have a whole bunch of folks in the Allegiant Stadium who not necessarily are from the vagus area. But they've had no trouble as far as I know selling tickets. Stadium is great. It's a beautiful stadium. And I mean, to me, I think if you had to say, who's the next franchise that the NBA would put in? I would say Vegas. And baseball, if you build a stadium with a retractable roof, it's too hot to play there in the summertime. As well, because when you look at the golden knights, it's impossible to get a ticket to those games. It's fantastic..

"You know, from trying to book guests, 38 requests, 38 yeses. Every person who we asked to speak to said yes. And the most important thing for Joel Santos, the fantastic co director and myself Joe nagy our editor, the entire wonderful team skip Clark, the DP. All knowing that John and I know Al feels this way too, that John was able to hear Al to hear that course of voices gathered with his son Mike with his family and really get the chance to absorb how people felt what they thought. Three days before his passing. As you say, Jimmy, it's just an incredible piece of timing. We're obviously so sad about John's passing, but we're so grateful knowing that he was able to see it and that he liked it. What month did you do the interviews with John in person where he watched the screen and stuff like that? When did that take place? That was over the summer. We did that, that was the principal interview with John. We went up and visited him a couple of the subsequent times audio only. But that was over the summer and again Alan knows this well and Pleasanton as part of goal line productions, the production company that he owns. He has a sound stage there, the incredibly, that's the space where he watches NFL games on Sunday. And that we construct in our own video screen. And that was where we played the clips for him. Oh, that's fascinating. So that way we saw him in the dock. That's what he watches the games on Sunday. Al have you ever been there? Have you ever seen that set up? I have. Yeah. When I was with John, those 7 seasons, we take some ancillary stuff up there, but it's a great setup. He's got all kinds of it's like a sports for basically, right? The chairs and the big screens and John would be the kind of guy who on a Sunday after his retirement, which sit there and watch 7 games at once. He was like, I guess I Pereira is in the Fox studios trying to watch every game and weigh in on every rule that comes into play. So he loved it. I mean, John would get up early on Sunday on the West Coast, watched the 10 o'clock games, watch the games at 1 o'clock, one 30, and then the Sunday Night game, then, of course, be there on Monday night as well. He didn't miss anything. He loved it. Interesting. Now, I don't want to get more of it, but I have to just for a second. Tom, when news came that he passed them 24. Was that a complete shock? Did you hear? Did you hear anything about bad health leading up to it or complete stunner? No, I was stunned and not to say that and again, I know Al because of his friendship with John was aware of some of the health challenges that John had had in his life. He was 85 years old, Jimmy. But regardless of those being aware of those concerns, I was still stunned. The very first call I made was to Mike Madden his son. I was fortunate that Mike picked up. And Mike shared, again, this feeling, this gratitude that the family had, that John.

"I want something we want here. Because i i gotta tell you i went on pedia just basic research and we've talked about when you've been on before i mean. Your resume is absolutely ridiculous. The amount of things you've called over the years it's just it's crazy but something on something here cracked me up. I wanna get your reaction. They list every big event. You've called now. It starts in nineteen seventy two with the winter olympics and they actually have here super bowl. Lv which is in two thousand twenty two. But i wanna read you the list of the two thousand just to get to something here and get your reaction. These are the big events called by al michaels in the year. Two thousand okay year. Two thousand super bowl thirty four two thousand kentucky derby two thousand preakness stakes two thousand indianapolis five hundred stanley cup finals. Belmont stakes indianapolis two thousand one indianapolis five hundred sound like vinyl stanley cup finals super bowl thirty seven super two thousand six super bowl. What does that forty for super bowl. Forty three two thousand ten winter olympics the butt fumble the bubble the butt fumble is now getting lumped in with the olympics. The stanley cup. What was that. Like for you or boys wikipedia right. I mean it's like where was the bus fumble rank. I'm like zoe keep winding up these crazy places. A jimmy to me. The most ironic thing in my career is that it a lotta people know me from the winter olympics in nineteen eighty An earthquake at the world series. And doing the play by play bronco chase of course in nineteen ninety-four me thirty six years of doing the nfl primetime best over here somewhere right hockey game at earthquake in a bronco chase. So it's kinda crazy and then the bubble is in there too. There's all kinds of wild subs and once in a while i'll take a look at a list and i'll go wild. I forgot about that. But i've been so lucky because i've been in so many places where some reads wild and crazy things that happen and and that's you know that's just one of the list of a thousand. What is not the biggest not the you know not the olympics. What's the craziest game. We have a called. We just couldn't believe in ending a finnish or an outcome. Were you stunned beyond belief. I mean i guess the hockey one is up there. But i'm talking about like a weird random one. Well i mean. I think about the my favorite events. There are two super bowls one is arizona for which was tremendous Where the cardinals during the game in the first place leading to go and then rothlisberger lease drive at the end in san antonio homes makes it amazing at and then the malcolm butler interception game so those are the two super bowls right but i would say if the something beyond lake classes by itself i mean nothing ever top that angels red sox in one thousand nine hundred eighty six. That gets pretty. Gotten because of the mets red sox. Msn insurance was great to correct. That was that was a postseason for the ages..

"You know six years old. Mother's give me a steak with with the catcher. You patrick mahomes bego but he. He went with that that haunts spraying. I'm sorry that you know my my my my apologies to the huntsville. There's only one. Catcher is maybe it's bust i when we post this. This is going to become a thing. People are not gonna like this revelation. But a lotta people they they understand as somebody who grew up in brooklyn i mean it them. We eat a lot of catcher and it's kind of like semi dna. What can i tell you. This is disappointing. I gotta bounce back now now now now now i do now i will ask you about. Let's get into something serious before we do some other fun stuff. Is al michaels going to amazon right now. I pointed at this year. My contract is up at the end of the season. And she's great to me if there is a combination for production between amazon and nbc. That creates a different temp with your Affect we would wind up overseeing two packages. It's not a deal yet. I know it's being discussed Amazon will probably need a partner obviously for production and will see what's going to happen at the end of the year but right now i mean i'm just trying to relish this point in my life Loving what. I do loving the people i work with. We have the super bowl in my hometown. Can't this contract can't and then he'd more beautifully for me and then we'll take a look and we'll see what's going to happen down the line. I do know this. I loved doing as much as ever on. Relishing it as you as you get older like actually talked through the use people like tom brady and drew brees and they get toward the end of their career. And in a way you know that the end is much closer than the the beginning or even the middle. And i'm really just sucking out all the joy i can't from the season got a great Low and then was you know. I want to get to the end of the year and then figure out what's going to happen. This is what i don't. I don't know how deep you wanna get into. This is what. I don't understand about this. I've written this. I get what you're saying about the end and hanging on and all that that's fine if you've diminished you've not diminished in any way she perform at all. So that's why. I don't understand why you would not be calling sunday. Nights on nbc. That's just my opinion. I don't know if you want to address that no. I don't know you know what's going to happen down the line here. I do know this i'm going to hang on. I mean if. I couldn't feel if i was doing the game the way i have to do the game the way i have done the game. You know you're not gonna appeal to everybody. I know but. I think most thirty six years prime time of the nfl. So i guess a good enough job that you know. I haven't talked to many people and there's no way i'm going to go out. And and and not be one hundred percent. What i am. I love.

"You prefer stadium like that or do you prefer old school history. Like lambeau arrowhead you know it. It's it's kind of like saying which rather have a porterhouse or filet mignon or new york state. I mean i love them. All arrowhead is amazing in the sense that the plans were drawn in the late sixties right. It doesn't look like the rest of the stadiums but it's a great great field they built. The stains are so close. Lambeau where has the great history and they through the years. They've added on like six seven different times. So lambeau looked like lambeau. That was constructed in the fifties. I i think of the modern stadiums so fi dallas where we were the minnesota or the best because they have certain features. That are a little bit different. They're not cookie cutter stadiums member. We went through. That korean in the seventies where they were building stadiums. cincinnati philadelphia. pittsburgh atlanta. That were they were terrible. Like shoot to reach these. They build them for baseball and football. So i liked the way the new stadiums constructed as i say by my you know only trinity in la minnesota and dallas where the dallas stadium is is now twelve or thirteen years old and every time i walk into just feels big time. It just does. Yeah i let me ask you the most important question of the podcast. Since you brought it up if al michaels goes to dinner tonight are you ordering a porterhouse a fillet or new york strip. Probably new york of your calories. The i love like a revised great. But you know. I don't like everybody i should say i don't like it. I don't i prefer the other cell. Say that yeah actually yet tonight heading to a place raw probably had will pasta but this weekend obviously a big old juicy steak and if you get the strip. What's the top side. You like to have with it because the scientist really what makes it breaks the steakhouses like vegetables noted for that you and i in eagle with the foods have you an. I never talked about your food quirkiness. We had a we had a re conversation was on a thursday night game and he was doing radio for and i was doing television back. Like sixty two thousand sixteen. But i think once. I think i may eat salads so when somebody tells me they have a salad and i say wait a second. That's vegetable i've never had. I've never had a vegetable zero. But i would say you know the best side and you don't get into too. Many places are potato skins. i like potatoes. Yeah not a vegetable rash potatoes. a great. A baked potato is great. But i'm a potato skins below sour cream minute jimmy. That's yeah i can see that. I think the greatest steakhouse side is. Ruth's chris russo. Chris out in la. I assume the sweet potato casserole. Now you will need to go to the dentist after. Check your diabetes. But that is the best side at a steakhouse and toothpick as well. But i think that No i'm met asleep potato guy. I like the regular potatoes. But it's on the board roof of veteran but it also can be do. No you know you'd have to catch it. You do know that yonder steak on the side. Just you didn't know how arquette. I grew up in getting me..

"Obviously for the titans but for us too because you we were going to promote this game. Pretty much you've got derrick henry on one side and you've got not only are donald got von miller on the other side of the rams are seven and one of the titans look like the among the best. Obviously the afc. So this is this is kind of a different deal This has some mystery to it but not as much as when you know. A quarterback is out. And you can build them up cooper rush. Who is this guy is tremendous day the today. Now you know these storage gonna be. What are the titans going to do. But that doesn't have as much appeal as derek can was playing in the game right. And what is it like for you doing that. Game sunday night cowboys at vikings. When you know you're going against game five of the world series is that in your mind at all. Is i mean. Obviously you gotta do your job. So it's not gonna affect that. But are you bummed about that is it is what it is. How do you feel about going against world series game. I mean years ago we didn't have a game against the world service we decided to in my mind Yeah i mean you. You know you're going against stiff competition but the crazy thing is jimmy. Is you know an nfl regular season game week will outrage a world series game which i never thought would happen In my first year going back the monday night. Football in nineteen eighty six. The it's the mets red sox world series and the game was rained out on sunday night which meant they went against us on monday night. Which normally they would never because the rain up and then of course you had a. That's the you know Mookie wilson through bill buckner legs world series and. I was working with frank. Gifford that urine franken was all football. No baseball and we're driving redskins at giants in the medalist. Byu bet gained six of the world series taking place at at shea stadium and said tonight because i rate them and i said frank there's no chance and i think the rating that night. I think the baseball game got a forty in the football game. Got an eight so this was like you're talking about thirty four years ago round. Which of the point is you know where the yankees avoid the red sox against the dodgers. Let's say in the world series probably or maybe would have slightly out rated dow's minnesota but we knew with land against houston that we would we win the night naturally it kinda savages or ratings are rating. Whatever it was to be maybe two or three points higher. But you know. Listen i was. I don't to get the world series. Race i wanna watch it myself right. Yeah that's right i mean.

I'm a very personality but we we need to talk about football and some other things going on. Let's let's start with this since we're taping this wednesday afternoon and it just happened a couple of hours ago. Aaron rodgers testing positive for covert. Obviously he's in a ten day protocol will miss the game sunday against the chiefs so that means he's unvaccinated after. He said he was unionized. Everyone's all wrapped up in rogers. Let me ask you this. Because i think this is an angle. People aren't really covering yet because it's so fresh. I'm curious if the packers we don't know what the packers knew or didn't know but the packers unvaccinated and didn't follow the protocols. I would imagine the packers could be in for big hit here from the nfl.

"al michaels" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show

"Anyway and that's now that's how i got underway and here it is Twenty years on monday night going on the sixteen now on sunday is it the same. Was it the same thing as it. Currently is now that you you get tons before the games with the coaches and interview them and if so does that mean you you had your first one. Your first broadcast coaches meetings with with landry and parcels does. That's the way it went. The that was the case that was the case. How landry and then the. He paul hackett in that meeting as well packet. I think it was the offensive coordinator of the of the cowboys and in parcells came into the meeting. Flavius joe morris who is their number one back jailing up and he was holding out at that point. Know some new to the game. At least i didn't know build that point. So i said a big of a deal. Is it of jones. Employee goes about the little like that. It's like okay. Don't always not denigrate you any malicious way. But it was always like no matter. What question to ask. Bill had to be the contrarian in terms of an answer. Anyway i love. I wound up the low and parsoes governor for years. He almost became the analyst on monday. Night football in two thousand and opportunities that right. I didn't know that yes he did. Yes and pass on it. yeah. I know i'm jumping around your. Please go in night. Yeah no end up so frank leaves. After ninety seven dwarfs gone after ninety eight at work with boomer esiason ninety eight with debt with theodore for ninety nine just the two of us in two thousand don almir comes in to produce the show and he wants to. He wants to do something really different and the really different thing that he did. Of course as we are dennis miller. But that's a different story before. We hired dennis so that role was going to go to parcels. These bill was now leaving football. He coached the jets. They at the whole thing going on. Where bill's gonna move into the front office. Maybe this is the whole bellichik year. This is the not going to be the hce of the y. J. year rights. He got ballot. Check getting the job. And then walking away from it to go to new england for our cells gone. Does he really want to do front office. Where or does he want to go to. Abc and bill nye at two very very long discussions on the phone and the thing about parsoes was he always had all of the answers right. We're your questions but we sped too long to very long our share of bone. He must have asked fifty questions. Have everything would work. It was great and they re. He's such an intelligent man is knowledge of football of courses is superb and at the end of the day the end of our conversation. He said. I don't want to take the job or not. I try. I try his own. Take the job on golf. Tonal thing. I wanted to take the job. And then he should. I don't know how to take the job he should if i do. I'll be the best analyst ever ever. And i should bill. I said that's all. I want to hear because i don't want this to be a halfway house for you. Guys get outta coaching and come back into coach right. We should hold much so if you haven't gotten your coaching jollies it. They're not out of your out of your body. This means too much to the rest of us. And that's when he said what he said about he'd be the best ever and of course. It was a part of me that knew that he had to go back to coaching at some point. Of course that happened in. Oh three when he began to coach the cowboys for he would he would have been terrific agree because that's the one you know. Obviously madden is one of the all time greats attic because he talked in a language that people completely understood in a from folksy to plane to just just described that describing. The obviously collins has that gene in him as well. The way that you could just describe something and it doesn't sound like you're it filled with jargon it's just normal plain english that makes sense you know and i think bill would have been great that with mad. Doing they make it fun to make not only interesting. But there's a. There's a a a lightness to to as well as none of the you know the three technique in you know the wide not when you get into that too but you need you gotta come away from that sub and see the bigger broader picture and. I've been fortunate with john and chris over the last almost twenty years. Now don't Doesn't get any better than that and they. You know what it is a rich. It's communication those guys. Know how to communicate. They know how to connect with the audience. And that's why you know. John just he understood. What was he understood. What what it means to listen to somebody. I mean to me. I've always when i enjoy myself from obama. Lister a i wanna. I wanna make sure that i'm well what i'm saying is interesting. Informative point with with me as as as viewer. So you try to put yourself in the viewers position. What does he need to what does he. What does he have to know. What's fun to know what's different And you're trying to of flip the very little bit to think of yourself as a listener as well as a communicator. Right and then talk about things that you know in again normally Or plainly i guess would be the way to put it in you know madden. You had a seat next to him. Hearing the way that he would communicate. You know the the thing that i will always live with me isn't from his game but from his pro football hall of fame speech about the busts talking to each other. It's just was. It was such a fan thing to say like you know and you know they talk. What do they talk about when the lights go out. And then one of the last lines he said. It's gonna be having one of those busts in there talking forever and ever talking about whatever and that was like almost tree and you know what i mean like. That's yeah i miss him. I miss that guy but obviously you. And he's he's one of the scores people ever. I mean look at john larger than life and he's scuttled the sound affection of boom and the whole thing but people don't understand this is a man who knows a lot about a lot and am i seven years with john. I mean we had some great great times and most of them dealt with like dinners or discussions. We had about things other than football. We spent enough time on football. We got it. We knew it. And we're doing a game every week but john could discuss. Anything is very curious man very of course going around the country. That's what he always wanted to do. He he loved. You know stopping in the coffee shop in goodland kansas and get another people and that's That's i think. Part of the reason john was able to connect as a communicator. With like every demographic every part of the country. Well i'm gonna finish up with you the way i'm planning to finish up with all the other interviews for for this ten part series of just getting started on nfl voices and broadcasters and it's the best piece of advice she received in your career what what was it in. From whom would you say. Well i would say it's kind of it's it's a little odd away but i'll never forget. I loved kurt gowdy as a broadcaster luck and i got to do the nineteen seventy two world series with him when i was doing the cincinnati reds and we won the pennant and actually had met kurt when i was in college and he was doing the red sox and i i played a tape for him as training so he knew about me..

Wet Notes 8-30-21

"This is wet notes here on scuba shack radio for monday august thirtieth two thousand and twenty one. Well we have certainly had our fill of extreme weather lately just last week here. In connecticut we face the challenges of tropical storm on re just barely below hurricane strength and at the last minute it shifted east and we avoided the brunt of the wind rhode island wasn't as fortunate and now we have item a cat for hurricane hit louisiana. Extreme weather is now the norm. The news keeps getting worse. Recently there was a study published by nicholas bars from the potsdam institute for climate impact research and that was that the gulfstream could be varying towards irreversible collapse. Now the gulf stream is part of the atlantic meridional overturning circulation or a. m. Oc this circulation takes warm salty. Water from the tropics moves in north and then takes the cold water south. The study finds that the circulation is at its weakest in one thousand years. So what happens if the gulfstream collapses that will dictate extreme cold for parts of north america and europe. Is the collapse imminent well. That's not an easy question. Answer it could be decades away but as we have seen things are happening a lot faster when it comes to climate change not only will the disruption of the gulfstream resort in colder north american temperatures. It is predicted that there will be a rise in sea level disruption of the monsoon patterns and impacts on the amazon rainforest. An aunt arctic ice sheets. The study concluded that is that this is all a result of human endorse induced climate. Change in may of this year. I talked about a project out on lake. Tahoe called cleanup lake. That project had an ambitious goal of cleaning over seventy two miles of the mountain lake. So i thought i would give it a quick update on how the work is progressing. Now these numbers come from the cleanup delake website. Cleanup delete dot org as earlier this month. Team of divers has removed an amazing eight thousand. One hundred and twenty two pounds of trash were three hundred and three thousand six hundred eighty four kilograms and covered about twenty two miles or thirty four kilometers of coastline. There update indicated that they have completed seventy four dives over twenty seven days of diving. The diver's consumed two hundred and eighty six cylinders of air. Today there have been eighty one volunteers who have delivered two thousand six hundred and eleven volunteer hours. Now i'm not sure if they're on pace to meet their objectives but that's not always the measure success. The amount of continuing effort is what really counts. Keep up the good work guys. The annual boston sea rovers clinic for this year is just one month away. The two thousand twenty clinic happened just a couple of weeks. Before the corona corona virus lockdowns took effect. We really didn't know how serious things were then. Now as we continue to emerge from the pandemic the show may just have the distinction of being the last face to face. Scuba show in the world before the pandemic and the first face-to-face scuba show in the world post pandemic monty. And i were at the last meeting. And everything's proceeding for the october. First and second show the show will follow state and local mandates and as the days pass by. We are all hoping that the show will go off his plan. This year shows moved from the traditional march date to october as a result of the pandemic that you'd be a great time to enjoy some early fall weather in new england. It'd be great to get together and diving is certainly a social sport. Do you miss dive training magazine. I sure do. I think i've re reread all the back issues. We have a good shop at least three times. So what's happening with the publication. Well i reached out to catherine castle garcia the editor to find out the latest catherine informed me that they hope to be publishing again in the fourth quarter of two thousand and twenty one. Now that's some good news. The fourth quarter is not that far away. And i'm certainly looking forward to dive training magazine hitting the streets and finally here on wet notes. I wanted to give you an update on the situation with dutch springs. If you remember last time. I reported that the property owned by stu jill school had been sold to trammell crow texas developer. Who's planning to build a large warehouse facility on the property. The initial word was that dutch would shut down after the season while a lot has happened in the last couple of weeks i there was a petition that garnered over three thousand supporters to keep the place open and as we know petitions can only go so far then there was support from patty professional association of diving instructors patty due to white paper outlining the economic benefits dutch brings provides as a diving venue. Patty estimates that because dutch exists. It helps to generate three point. Four billion annual retail sales in the northeast they tag the economic benefit to bethlehem at thirty four point five million as for tax revenue. The paper indicates that about ninety. Eight point nine million is generated for state and local taxes and northeast and about two point one million for bethlehem in addition to patty support. The lehigh valley planning commission has called the proposal of disaster for the quality of life in the lehigh valley while it seems that there a great deal of opposition to maybe very little that can be done to stop the effort. One positive. I that i did see. Was that trammell. Crow was indiscretions with local officials to offload the fifty off lou to fifty acre quarry for community use. Just how would you get to acquire if they build the warehouses. I don't know while the saga is far from over. I would expect that we won't see. Dutch brings open for the twenty twenty two dive season but his al michaels once said. Do you believe in miracles. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes.

The only reason I felt by had to come in. And shake something was that a Lotta people who didn't have any idea who Howard stern was your at listened to him Bob Louise. Would have thought that that was a guy who literally was across the street right and you know, oh, he looks scared Bobo. So I had to disabuse anybody I didn't ask too but I sort of felt journalistically compelled to say, Hey, listen you know that was a totally far so call but I'm sitting there thinking I love Howard and I've been on a show and it actually sneaked his name into a couple of broadcast once in the Olympics of nineteen, Eighty, eight in Calgary and I'm thinking. No is that on Monday morning this deal be played at Nauseam for months for months it has to be the greatest frank. Year. Big Hockey, how do I how do we?

You know thanks for the Nice write-up. It is the greatest call of my career lest anyone think it's not and it was a great funny email and I assume it's one of my readers playing a prank on me because the email address they came in it wasn't Al Michaels.

"A sports fan my whole life I can find a. Ride, the the wave you know there's I think. Announcers play by play guy says being lyricists and you listen to the melody and the melody is fans create the Melody. And you're Kinda rolling along with the lyrics. So I'm not rolling along to the lyrics of the enhanced audio, I mean. Some of it sounds pretty good. I think we're doing a real good job on our show I saw you know I was home this weekend. So all of the game, some of the Games had really good audio others was over the top. It's almost who's ever control of it is making a sound too exciting. It's not that exciting at certain points. That's what aligned into. Right. There's there's there's a balance that needs to be struck here. Let me ask you what what I have to do though is just as a as an announcer is I have to. I've used this analogy before I'm like a horse with blinkers on and and when the horse starts to look around, you know the the trainer puts the blinkers on. So he looked straight ahead he won't look into the stands we'll look into the infield. And that's what I do too. I mean we come out of commercial I'm just going. Up The game the game just concentrate on the game so that part of it hasn't been hard but but I sure do miss a fans. Yeah. I mean I mean I would assume. subconsciously even thinking about it big play. The level of how the crowd is going crazy affects your call a little bit here and there. I can feel it I mean I. I know when there's a big play and as I say on on our crew are our sound mixer audio man and the Wall Street Journal did a story on Wendell. Stevens he's so good. He's the guy that plays that incredibly appropriate music going into breaks that are. Show wired to what's really happening in that city or in the game.

I wasn't going to bring this up until later but I just realized I done in a couple of months ago for dot com where I asked a ton of play by play people for their all time favorite call that wasn't their own you. You were Nice enough to participate and I appreciate that and it was amazing because most of the answers read the your miracle on ice. Or and I think this was the answer you gave the Jack Bach. Kirk. Gibson home run. Well let's extra thing that was the play but ironically about that, I, gave you the Vin scully. Cool. Colleague Clinton and I saw the the column I thought that was very interesting because you know jacket a great call on radio can't believe what I just saw right with a lot of the folks wrote in and said that that was favorite but mine was Vinnie school on television, which was perfectly as all know the story Gibson was coming out of intensive care. There was no he was going to play. He hobbles up to the players Homerun off Eckersley to to win the game the dodgers going to win the series and as as only then you could call you know..

Actor Alan Alda reveals Parkinson's diagnosis

"Flynn, six hundred and ninety two point one FM It's morning, news it is six forty six eight temperature Of sixty nine degrees I noticed. Some high schools are having some. Football scrimmages force Goodman, that, means it's It's back in the air college football teams opening up. Their practices today So one month away from the real? Deal, and but but you said high school high schools like approaching quickly yeah When their seasons get here they start the middle of August and hope hope the weather that we've seen for the last few days will continue. To stick, around as those young men get out there and start, conditioning and. Working out, and that sort of stuff because again that can. Just be brutal on anyone who's outside athletes construction workers I mean? That's I did look down the road the other day. In the the guys who put the roof on the house I'm like man if they'd just waited a few days because they were doing it right when I mean during that brutal. Heat wave, few days they'd have been better off so yeah well, it is. It is, man It is nice to have these temperatures like we've got right now for those working outside I, know it's a it's going. To help, them, be more. Productive and actually Heaven forbid actually. Be a little comfortable, while doing by the way numbers ran from shark week Which I. Didn't watch any I didn't watch any of it this year it was down it's my. Fault then they averaged one point million in total. Viewers on the Discovery Channel is down still. They, nearly doubled CNN's average, of eight hundred ninety, one thousand Melissa different. Times n., n. viewers well actually with those numbers it's more like minnows but that's. Another story Fox News twenty fifth consecutive month is the most watched network in cable in July Beating, out the the others, FOX was first in primetime. With an average of about two point four. Million viewers and. Finished first in. The total day around one point four million Hannity and Tucker Carlson or the top two. Programs for the month and and then MSNBC's Rachel. Meadow came in third with the appropriate named. Rachel, meadow show MSNBC overall, was second behind Fox, News channel in primetime. But then, in total day they dropped to third behind Nickelodeon believe it or not Out of the victory cable networks CNN placed tenth in prime. And seventh in the total day CNN. Lawsuit HGTV USA history channel Discovery Channel hallmark channel and I think shape with Martha, on public access perhaps or maybe after in that last one I missed that one but FOX. Business network beats CNBC who had a twenty three year low in, business day viewers for the month I haven't I in all fairness to, both of those business networks I, have a tough time watching those all those. Tickers and things scrolling or just distracting they're just really hard to to watch but so if if if you're into if you're a TV junkie. Our news junkie then those are the numbers that have been, have been coming in It would have probably helped shark shark NATO Oh I don't know about that, if it had, come out during the month a different channel but maybe they would have fed off. Of each other fed off of? Each. Other did you say that on purpose no now this and this. Was the thirtieth? Anniversary to of shark? Week wasn't that inter twenty fifth or thirtieth I mean I I know they. Were like celebrating some monumental anniversary thirty thirty okay in doing it and look and I I know people right now I, got, a, friend of mine and he's like oh man I got this recorded on the DVR, because he works. A lot and he's like I got this I can't wait to watch, this and I just didn't really think about it much this year, not, that, I was ever a big shark week fan and you know you wanna you wanna, give me a. Story about sharks giving jaws all right That's all you need right there. We're gonna need a bigger boat, did you. Hear about Alan, Alda I. Don't know if you heard okay. What's that he was Hawkeye yeah. Yeah yeah he is Oh wow just lost voice like. Al. Michaels or? Al Michaels has. A. Voice, like. Alan Alda Alan Alda. Has, come out. And said that he is he has. Been diagnosed with. Parkinson's disease oh man yeah he's eighty. He's I didn't realize he's eighty two he still doesn't he doesn't look eighty two to me I know he's been around forever. With, with. Mashan and he's been lots of all kinds of Malaysia ever since he left mash But. He said he was diagnosed three and a half years ago says he. Has, a full life and? He still loves to do his podcast to. Act and give talks and Ellen all, does a podcast really yeah, I can. Only imagine yeah he is a wild eyed left-winger yeah. I can only imagine what he talks. About I. Bet, he added. He'd suffers from TD s worse than. A lot of. Folks out there yeah but you know. What he does give some great advice in his he he put out a tweet says if you get a diagnosis keep moving Yeah. I love that good for him you know unlike our friends on. The, left when when someone on the left get sick I don't I'm happy and I don't celebrate and I don't you know wish the worst upon them I'd I'd give me he's a human being he's someone, who's. Been, in certain roles I. Never, watched mash but he's been in. Certain, roles in movies that light and you know. I don't wish this. Upon anybody so I would I do offer him prayers and I do. Hope, that it's something that? Does not hold him back eighty two years. Old, there's a lot of things that, can sneak up and get, you yeah And, you know so if if this, is the worst. Thing going on right now, it's something he can live with and and hopefully continue to do what he loves Yep absolutely. We wish we wish him well and a long healthy fight Parkin's. Yes And again unlike. Some or other, friends on the? Other side who would be happy you. Know if they. Found out rush. Had this or something and it would celebrate and dance in the, streets and late night comedians would make fine but that's the way they react the. Tolerance, side. Where's Gary burger is he he's still alive right radar I think. So I don't know the mash question I just, assumed you knew everything about mash. Now I said, I never watched? Star Mary used to be like on. The.
