This message comes from NPR sponsor, indeed if you're hiring with indeed you can post a job in minutes, set up screener questions then zero in on your shortlist of qualified candidates using online dashboard. Get started at indeed dot com slash NPR podcast. Hello and welcome to car talk on National Public Radio. That's clicking tapper broadcasting this week from the Bronx on gerski long underwear factor here at car talk, this now, speaking of Brooklyn gerski, I just was arresting letter from Charlie Finn who couldn't put it on the back of a twenty dollar Bill, but he did put it on the back of ten after listening to your show for many years and wondering what Brooklyn gerski had to do with cars. Imagine my surprise when I read the following in a old Reader's Digest after football. Great broken gerski tired from the game. He lived in international falls, Minnesota. You probably knew. Yes. I did know that where he opened a gasoline station on you, no broke a local car dealer. Taking visiting district manager on a tour said see that guy over there. That's broken gerski. He owns that station. He's got the best repeat business in town. The manager said he wasn't surprised the gerski was a legend in the mid west. No, it's not that the car dealer replied, it's just that one Broncos screws on your gas cap. Nobody else. And I'll bet and he says I'm bet he was wearing his Bronco. Chris long underwear up there in international falls while he was pumping gas, Charlie Finn. National fault. He must have been wearing those long. Now on the other side of this. I just got to give you the good side. That's the good side of mechanics. Here's a note from Mary Ellen stone of Washington Redmond Washington. This is the police blotter King County a woman allegedly tried to run. You're probably familiar with this woman allegedly tried to run her mechanic over with her car after she was presented with the Bill. Can you? What's on the mechanic told police that the woman accused him of ripping her off and refused to pay him? He said she then got into her car and drove toward him. He said he felt onto the car hood as she continued to drive the car. Before he was able to get up. Sprawled across the hood woman told police her con never came in contact with the mechanic, not me. But did he chase? They're off the lot yelling at her as she drove across the street the Packer. She said she returned it a lot to pick up other car. The police office noted that the mechanic was limping when he arrived. Love it. They deserve it. Every one of them deserves it. Black and blue marks. Well, if you'd like to talk to us, our number is eight eight car talk that's one eight two two seven eight two five five. Hello, you're on car talk. Hi, this is Adrian calling from Vail, Colorado. Vale I have a standard two thousand and one Subaru outback and my husband, and I have this ongoing debate about using cruise control and a small wager to go along with it. But as you know. Inside your on. So we'll just we'll be to that where we can be impartial. Not what I meant. But fine. That's that's. That's what the wager. We may ask. It has to do shoveling snow, but okay, as you know, there lots of really high mountain passes in Colorado. And when we go to Denver, which is about one hundred miles away there to ten thousand foot passes that we have to go over Rockall. Just. Are you going to tell us that y'all wacko husband puts cruise control on as he's going through these mountain passes? Are you going to tell us that what I'm gonna tell you is that he puts it on going down the back side of the pass and. My questions are these one doesn't engage the braking system at all. If you start to exceed the speed that it set for. To my husband crazy. Yes. Doesn't is it bad for car at all. Well, you know, if it would only maintain the speed to the extent that the engine and the transmission together could maintain the speed, for example, if you had the thing in fifth year, and you had the cruise control set for thirty five miles an hour, you'd be dead it, it would just going faster and faster and faster, of course, depending upon the steepness of the hill. And no wouldn't put the brakes on there. There are a couple of cars, I think which do that. But this isn't one of them. Most cars don't most cars don't most cars figure you most people out that stupid going downhill. Isn't it kind of a devil may care kind of guy? No. He's a great skier. He's a great skier. And so he thinks that the fast you go down a hill, the more fun. It is. Well, it is. And he's trying to he's not getting enough skiing. He he actually skis for living. So you should you should never in my opinion, never use cruise control when you're going down in less. In fact, you can set it and put it in the proper gear because you can put it in cruise control at forty miles an hour and put it in second year. But this cruise control doesn't do anything. If you can put it in second gear, and it will stay there. It would probably stay there without cruise control. You're not gaining anything by using the cruise control your only putting yourself in potential danger. It's a silly crazy thing to do. Yeah. Fortunately, I have to agree with my brother sable the thing guys cre- Puma wires all the wires out. He should he shouldn't be allowed to have cruise control. Even if you're even if nothing crazy. Great guys, climbing on cruise control. The guys in the white coats before it's too late. Save yourself. Well, thank you. I appreciate your, thanks. I'm glad you called. Because seriously. This is a very very dangerous thing to do. Does he engineer? He's a stance structure you say. He's is probably at MD, no, the nurse. So I. Oh, it's good that you're a nurse. He'll need it. When never mind. Yeah. Please. Tell him not to do this anymore. Okay. That would be good. Thank you and happy holidays. Okay. Bye-bye one one eight eight eight. End eighty to seventy eight two five five lawyer on car talk. I this is Peter Sleman calling from your old all modern Cambridge Massachusetts. Which one is that we've got four the MIT that one. Hi, peter. What would you do recognize your name since you gave us your whole name are in which is boys in ya who's and we don't know who you are in your world famous. Not yet a graduate student now staying the history of science, no kidding. The history of science. It's that's an interesting field. Isn't it? Yeah. I was undergrad math than found that I was more interested in sort of social context. Damn hard. I loved math to until I became a long division. That was a killer really hard it became to demand. Strack they stopped using numbers at a certain point. I mean, if they stop using his, you know, you're in trouble. That's the that's the level at which you say, oh, yeah. You know, you're not out to. Anyway, what's going on Peter nineteen ninety one hundred court station, wagon and the other night. I was leaving my office to pick up my girlfriend at the airport in providence. And when I got to my car realized that I had left the lights on in the battery died. So I went back inside to try to find someone to help. And when I came back out, I found that the alarm was going off. I mean, the one thing it went from bad to worse, basically. And I was able to flag down really nice. Couple of pickup truck for there to help me jump start the car. And when I went to the trunk to get the jumper cables out as soon as I opened it the alarm went off again. Right. And so I'm wondering if the battery was dead. Why was this? The one thing that was going off kind of week instead of the usual ear-piercing house more. It was really loud. In the weird thing. I don't think I've heard the alarm I've been driving this car since the beginning of the summer, and I've never even thought about the forgotten. I had an alarm this was a a car inherited from my family. So you don't many with how lob it may be a lot louder now. I mean, it's possible. It's certainly reasonable that the alarm could be going off while the battery can't start your car. I don't find anything any problem with. Still enough juice to run the the siren if it's all the horn, whatever it is. It was enough to run your headlights because it doesn't take very much juice to to run a siren our horn compared to the the juice takes turn over a starter motor was there. Any logical reason why it would trigger the alarm it's possible that something in the alarm system triggers when the batteries dead or those alarm systems of very sensitive voltage drops. So if I mean, obviously disconnect the battery the alarm won't go on at all. But we often have situation where we will disconnect the battery and then hook it back up and the alarm goes off. So by the battery going dead. It may have been it may have triggered the alarm. I have to say these alarm systems are mystery to me because we drive a lot of cars that alone to us by manufacturers. And it's happened to me a dozen. Times over the past years that I do nothing different than I can think of I put the key in the lock I unlocked the door, and I get in and the alarm goes off. And I don't understand why it does that feel crazy because your wife is sitting two blocks away. I suspect your your alarm triggered by the drop in battery voltage. But I don't think it's going to happen again. I wouldn't worry about that. I was just check your lights and don't leave him on at night. Now, you know, you can have the alarm disconnected. But it's actually kind of nice though, that you haven't alarm. I was surprised pleasantly. See a Peter. Thanks. Bye. Bye. One eight eight eight car talk that's eight eight eight two two seven eight two five five. Hello, you're on car talk. Jane? I'm calling from Durham North Carolina. You sound like a very together person. Talent sounding together on the telephone sound like a college professor are you know, I work at university. But not on the epidemic side, not only academe excited. Not only academe excited. You should have that soothing that comforting tone in your voice, are you involved in social work? Yeah. Volleyball? The beer blast. She has that. That that calming kind of you, do my brother just nodded off twice. I need therapy. You'll get it. You don't know it yet? Jane to say, okay, Tommy. Let's just calm down. Yes. So how how can we calm you down which what's up? Well, I'm calm. The gas tank on my vehicle is apparently getting smaller and smaller that does happen tank shrinkage. Maybe it's been washed into hot water in. It's kind of warm down here in the summertime. Level temperature was through high. Yes. Started this van started when I purchased it with a twelve gallon gas tank moment, it seems to be down to five and a half gallons. We're kind of a vehicle is it say. It's a minivan. It's a Chrysler product. Like a dodge caravan or a Plymouth Voyager. Yeah. You don't you know? That you have high level of involvement with your vehicle and this head a twelve gallon tank Ono it had more than that. It did. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Shortchanged right. From the get-go already started this process when I acquired. Do you have any idea? How old is vehicle is? Well, what year did they make the blue ones? Well, I'll tell you didn't make any blow in the in the early eighties. Okay. Mcginn in the early eighties. Eighty four was the first year. They've made a minivan. How I mean? Is it very old are think so I don't think so. I mean, it's by it. Yes. I bought it from my father. I see he bought it from. Dark blue light blue and kind of has some stripes on it that was a late eight late eighties. Metoo eighty nine cylinder engine. You know, what the hell the Shifter automatic automatic. And so in the old days, you can remember filling it up, but it would take like twelve gallons of gas if the gauge red empty. Yes, take twelve gallons. And now when it's on empty, it will take five this gradually over time in when you fill it up like that. It's full, you know, it's full because the thing that's off in the needle needle goes to full. No. Can you remember whether the time that it takes to get from full to empty is any different from it used to be when used to put twelve ounce guess. Oh, yes. Oh, yes. It's I have to fill up much more often. Right. Of course that you have to fill up about I'm gonna get out twice often. Right. Right. That's what I liked. Yeah. I like this. So it's going down to empty twice as fast as it used to. Right. Okay here. That's great news. Life. Very simple. Okay. Yet. Does it does? Here's what you're going to have to go to your local hardware store and buy yourself a gas. Can that the kind that you would use to fill up, you know, for your lawn more, okay and fill it up with gas and fill up your gas tank as well you're gonna tell me to try to run out again. He not try do. To keep driving into you're going to see that. It's going to take a long time after that needle says empty. Yeah. Really run out. Sure because what's happened is the sending unit in the tank stopped working correctly. Okay. Now, if you lucky the fuel pump is going to conquer out at the same time. So you replace the whole the whole thing comes as one unit fuel pump fuel pump in sending unit because it's inside the gas tank. Okay. Replace that the gas gauge you'll begin to work correctly and everything will be wonderful. Thank you very much. So you Jade bye bye. Bye. Okay. It's time to find out if my brother remembers last week's puzzling. I don't remember. I don't remember last week's puzzle. You really don't I give me a hint? I don't remember. But will have the answering system in its state? Phantom when you slid bidding us national meaning in my car of mud. In on the strip. Every Saturday night shit down the block kids in town. Johnny.

I were back listening to car talk with us clicking click the tapper brothers, and we hit a talk about cars car repair and the answer to last week's policy. How many sentences you have to go through before? I get it on the first sentence. I'm going to set the scene time World War Two the place. Got it. Portugal. Mirrors been Mary Olding bed of intrigue. Yeah. I'll give you the the the preview edited version, which I couldn't do because you get me in a secret laboratory a small group of scientists is working on a project. They have made a discovery something that they know will greatly aid in the allied effort against the Germans. Furthermore, this goverry will also benefit mankind for years to come and could easily turn the tide of the war. This is heavy duty this. This is heavy is in heavy duty, something didn't invent stink bombs running stuff. Whoopie cushion. Yes. Damn. Clued in this group is a German scientist who has recently escaped the clutches of the Nazis in there working on a project that have been abandoned by Scottish scientists more than ten years earlier. So now finally after many disappointments, they finally have success one of them cries out Eureka, all whatever the of. Same to you. Anyway, they know they've got something big here in the apply for grants from the British government to their amazement in great disappointment. The grant comes through for fifty pounds. Brits, these guys say fifty pounds have breakfast. The only way we can get this thing into the war effort is to go to America. And try our luck there. So they leave England but leaving England and going to the US as dangerous with the German u boats patrolling the north of number well so in order to make their way safely they decide to sail under the flag of a neutral country, Switzerland, Portugal, Switzerland doesn't say. They don't have an Amata the Swiss Amata, so they make. They make their way they make their way to Lisbon. Yeah. Okay. And from there they play hotbed too. I wanna get the bits disembark to American Lisbon is a hot. By counter-insurgency insurgents. And they know the discovery gets into the wrong hands. There could be dire consequences so the need to hide it. So they take discovery you're ready for this. And they hide it on the clothing. Discovery hidden on the clothing their way to America and the rest is they invented the boot on. Yeah. How did that benefit mankind about all the problems that you have gone to bitch? That's right. Wow. The boot. Yeah. Right close. Well, wasn't the Whoopie cushion. What they discovered what they discovered something that aided the war effort in and they they knew as most military students knew that the greatest cause of fatalities in warfare is not the actual gunshot wound. But it's the ensuing infection. In fact, most people die in the battlefield because they get a minor wound. But a major infection and the infection kills them and the work that they took up what had been started in the twenties by a Scotsman named Alexander flannel. Well, we know him to leave and what he discovered by accident was penicillin what he could Ican never do anything with it because he couldn't develop a strain of it that was reproducible. But these guys had and when they had the penicillin mold rather than carrying it little Petri dishes. Of course, they decided if if they were apprehended by Nazis rubbed on their Klay headed on the clothes that when they got to America, they could do a little scraping. And that's in fact, what they did. And of course, it saved many lives at allowed soldiers wounded to go back and get killed wait a minute. Now, if they were going to do that. Yes. And rub it on close. It was going to smell bad. Probably why didn't always smell it. Why didn't they go France? In prison. All the time. Joints. Okay. Is that is given last week was chicken soup, which everyone knows his Jewish penicillin. Oh, of course, I didn't get then you didn't you didn't get anything. You remember anything because and the boot new might to guess, we have a winner redo. Wow. Yeah. Get this. The winner of what a coincidence. The winner is Mouly's Linden. Feld. No kidding Molise apropos. What are strange name? She's from coconut grove Florida and for having her correct answer chosen Malays is going to get a twenty five dollar gift certificate to the car talk shameless commerce division, and that should end your Malays. I would say indeed. Now, we'll have a new puzzle coming up mathematical puzzle of sorts on third half of today's show. So try to stay awake. At least until then. In the meantime, you can call us and ask us any question you'd like about your car a neighbor's car or. Anything quantum mechanics? Yes. Into that lately. One eight eight eight car talk that's eight eight eight two two seven eight two double five. Hello, you're on car talk. Hello. This is Brennan loydell Brent high Brandt. Rondo. No, Louisville Kentucky. Yeah. So what's up? Well, I have a problem with a ex girlfriend's ex RX seven Mazda emphasize ex there on both of those cases. So she's girlfriend anymore. She doesn't have the car anymore. It's more than that. I you. Go ahead. I'll show you. Yeah. Okay. Well, this car had been flooding in couldn't it wouldn't start. This is a a row Cortez rotary engine. Of course, how old americ- seven is it. This is an eighty six seven g LX. It's wasn't very nice sports car until I put my hands on it. Oh, that's and that's why ex-girlfriend I'm beginning. We'll get to that. Wouldn't start. So I tried several things I I I took the plugs out there wet, and of course, they were were and I dry them off with me and put them back in starting fluid. So the next thing I did is I said, well it's getting too much fuel. I wonder where this coming from. So disconnected the wear harnesses from the two injectors and tried it again, I would start. And then I went looking for a cold start. Injector? Course, I don't know anything about these. You're on a roll rate. You're on a rule. I wouldn't have been so quick to dump you. I couldn't find one. I so I thought well I'm gonna I'm gonna stop the fuel from getting this engine. The fuel line. Well, I disconnected the fuel line vice. All right there at then. I. Yeah. I got in the car, and I just I wanna make sure feels come out. So I turn ignition over and looked at. No, no feels coming out that hose. Fire extinguisher handy while you. Cranked it over in a head the technician wires a little too close. Burst into flames. Chemical reaction started. Yeah. Called explosion fire. Did you say Hon, you your car was involved in the chemical reaction? Well after the trip came and put it out there there really wasn't much left except the back tires so fire. You didn't like try to get into the car and turn off the ignition? Switch turn it off immediately jumped out and dropped hood. But it was too late and back my car out of the way. I. Car parked right in front of that was good. You got yours. Out of the way. No since burning up to cars to train. There is a line of cars down the street. I ran from house to house, and no one was home, you know, during the work day and from watch to watch for ten. Even when I grab the neighbors hose and it the short by about thirty feet. After that. I went home and got cleaned up. And I took my title out my Mazda sign the back of that Susan needed a car. So I give her your car. I gave her my car. Oh, what a dope. She didn't take it which was kind of nice. She does driving now until she gets money from our insurance company. So what can we do to win her back? Well, I really don't know if I want to do that. I I know that. That we're probably not compatible. I do have a question. Where's the fuel pump on this car? The fuel pump. I is probably in the tank or it's not in the tank, it's very close to the tank. It's under the if it's not inside the tank, it's in the rear of the car, very near the tank explains dead explains that and it's electric pump. And it's run by a relay that's energized by the key. And if you want to know, what was really wrong with the car. I suspect it was the fuel pressure regulator that was certainly at this point academic. Fuel pressure. Regulator was probably faulty in sucking in extra fuel into the what are they don't call them cylinders in this thing that the combustion chamber nonsensical syllabus? Yes. Well, I mean, I I have to say though, that it is never a good idea to disconnect a fuel line. And right fields bad enough about this. But I I don't know you. Brent we've never spoken before. But I sense a considerable loss of self esteem in voice and unique that back you do. I don't know if it was Huron. Because it I after had taken the plugs out. There was so much fuel in the combustion chambers. Have blown a bit on the side while of the engine compartment anything. I mean, it could have been a lightning strike, even everywhere. I mean, it may not have been you. It may not have been a you read. I'm okay, you're okay. I think no I I have read minner from ours from I would read. I'm okay are okay. All the sequel. I'm okay. And you're a jerk. Either of those. Yeah. It's true. I I don't think you know, you should jump right back on the horse and just not taking stuff apart. Again. Oh, I'm done that don't be discouraged by don't ever be discouraged by a little setback. And thank you lucky stars. It was somebody else's car. Hey, thanks for calling. Good luck. One eight car talk or one eight eight eight two two seven eight two five five low you're on car talk June for Birmingham, Alabama. Just great. We don't you don't hear that. I I have one customer whose name is Jim I like that name June is a nice name. Yeah. Yeah. It's it's it's sort of sophisticated and yet simple. My mother will. Thank reminds me of the time. I was in this really snotty French restaurant and the way it was explaining the pate of the day. And we asked him. Well, what is it? He said, let's country pate. Anyway, we all want is that me he so. Well, I would say that it's rather costs and then without missing, but not unsophisticated. Kicked. Yeah. Any event hi June. How are you? Good. What's up? I haven't Jeep Cherokee has four wheel drive. I bought it because I love wildflowers, and hiking and ferns and all of that, I'm an outdoor person. And I got it. So I could go out in the woods looking for things. Drive over tree stumps in across whatever. The office building where I work has just installed these obnoxious annoying speed breakers in the parking lot. They are very tall. They are the agony to the road. Humps there hump awful. And since I have this rugged g do I have to stop can. I just roared over. Well, the fact that you have this sort of all-terrain vehicle makes the suspension such that. When you hit a good bump, you bossing all around in that thing just goes bonkers. Right. Right. And that's because it's going to do that when you're driving over the tree stumps. And you don't want you wanna make sure that it's high enough off the ground that the tree stumps. Don't rip everything out? So you do whatever you want. The answer is how much how much can you take? Yeah. They way you won't be hurting it if you drive fast over this bump while you will be you'll be pushing the the the steering in the suspension to its limits. But but I think you'll hit your limit long before you hit the vehicles limit. I mean, she'll be bouncing off the walls of this thing. I mean, if you hit that thing doing fifteen miles an hour, you'll go out the sun roof of you have to you'll stop this. Yeah. I mean, you're going to do more harm to yourself than to the vehicle. Now, why did that wasn't your question that they put in these speed bumps at somebody lowdown wackos like June, one of those Evan around the priming, maybe just for you. Well, they used to be a way you could go into back way. But they figured that out and put the speed bumps player to now when you drive through the woods in pursuit of your wildflowers drive at forty five miles an hour or do you slow down two miles an hour now because I'm looking she's looking on. Slowly, you're trying to tell me that you're that anxious to get to work that you don't want to slow down going into the parking lot. Wait to get the word speed bumps on the way out of the. No it both ways. Point. No, I would slow right down. We'll crawl and smell those roses on the way to work. And why don't you wanna do that June? Time when I could be doing something else. But that's sort of like the malady of the Malays of the of the millennium has been the fact that everyone as a frayed to waste a minute. That's why people are talking on the cell phones combing day hair, while they drive eating while driving multitasking I've committed to mono task tasking is good. Yeah. I mean, why is it that everyone thinks they going to be doing something, and they got to be doing it faster and faster and facts, everyone's a half of the person is getting ahead of them. But don't they realize that up ahead any better than it is right? He didn't. They don't affect now is crowded because everyone's. Stay back. I think I don't know what to do about it. But it seems to me that people have gone wacky people have gone wacky. But you sound June. I guess the reason I'm surprised that this is June. Sounds like a very laid-back patient kind of person. She goes and looks at wildflowers. No, that's the sued the savage beast at her. Also on the stockbroker. Oh, so you had explains a lot. Yeah. Okay. That does explain most everything. Tips for. So we sell our tech stocks well June. I don't know what to tell you. But try to slow down you'll live longer. Thank you see later by. Hey, let me guess you'd like to take a little break right about. Now. What do you think that? Well, you've got the door open headphones off in your rollerskates. Kid slip anything by you. Back with a brand new puzzle in just a minute. Room foam, baby. Grom? Do the floor. And even though Beethoven rolls over and tells tchaykovsky the bad news whenever he is saying this is NPR what's unique about the human experience. And what we all have in common. I'm every week on Ted radio hour, we go on a journey to the big ideas, motions discoveries that fill all of us with wonder find it on NPR one or wherever you get your podcasts. We're back. You're listening to car talk with us click and collect the tapper brothers, and we hit a discuss cars car repair. And. Puzzling. Yeah. Now, I do have some some rather convoluted automotive puzzles in my in my trash track. What is it? Call it. Grab bag. Right. Well, most most of dreamed from the trash man, but this kid is just getting back to school. Yeah. I thought I would do something to stick because even playing intendo for two weeks. Exactly right now, it's time brain. And there are a lot of our little children that listen to car talk that studying algebra. And I thought I would ask them to to simplify the following Paulino meal may just write this down. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. Go ahead X, plus a in parentheses times x minus B in parentheses times x plus c in parentheses dot dot dot dot times. X minus Z which is the last z get it. So I mean, so it's parenthesis X. Plus a close Prentice. Yeah. Parenthesis X mine is be close print dago. So you want I want the product the product of all those terms, right? Yeah. Yeah. I it's really shouldn't take that long. I think it's it's it's something to just get the brain juices that uses up there. What's up there? You know? You know, you. The answer.

Mark from Boise. Mark Boise, Idaho that Boise. I'm honored to be talking with you guys even know where where Idaho is. Well, what's the only reason he can do that? As that. He has an eighth grader. She knows were Idaho is so he had to learn it anyway, Eighty-six Colt vista. Oh, man. Yeah. With a hundred and forty eight thousand miles on it doesn't get any better doesn't. I gotta talk to you about engine lubrication. Spin on oil filters are designed to be bypassed. If they get clogged up, correct built in bypass. I've got a situation where my daughter crunch at the front of the car, and I cannot remove the filter. Perfect. Leave it on. The question I have is in order to keep the single and as long as possible, and I don't know how much longer that might be. Miles. How frequently should I change the oil all to keep the filter from getting clogged going to clog up? You'd be surprised. How long can I go? How long has it been on the now it's been three thousand four thousand miles. You've got we tell you you may not be aware of this. But I own an eighty seven Colt vista exactly that's exactly why I'm talking to you. Yeah. That's right. He wouldn't call because he knows you. Decided some time ago to do an experiment with my cult vista in the interest of science I decided to never change the oil again. So I'll call you about a week. How called you the day mind blows up that'd be perfect on. And you'll know how much, you know, you'll probably have thousands of miles left. If you're at least changing the oil, I decided to change not only not the oil, but not the filter either. Okay, nothing. I'm a million top mode. Just today talk about things being timely. Just today I was looking through some mail, and we got a note from a guy who lives down the Cape in here in Massachusetts. And Bruce domestic I think the name was wealth, and since we didn't respond to his letter through our newspaper column, he sent it directly to death threat glued threatened -cluded. And he says here's my question. He says he somehow was in the army sometime or other the army. He says did tests. It's in these tests. The question was to change the oil on not change the oil, and he has been driving a Ford, something or other has fifty thousand miles on it. He's never changed the oil as it runs like a dream and get this. He says the army tests showed that the best thing to do is don't change the oil and his the reason the engine will be protected by metallic flakes. I'll about that this maybe maybe a huge cover up. We know that the evolving. Very complex and the oil coming. If anyone could be accused of skulduggery without any information. Oh, it's your company man, in your opinion, in my opinion, and in the opinion of Oliver Stone and General Motors, in my opinion, wouldn't surprise me. If this has been foisted on this philosophy that we have to change our oil and filter. Yeah. Restoring this car like you suggest and that seems to help a lot and that has a lot of metallic flakes various, doesn't it? Design they may be privy to these army tests. Now, this guy him restores the grinding up old engines. Well, it's some kind of homeopathic thing. Exactly. Right. You put a little bit of a sick engine and to everyone's car, and it goes up a resistance to it. Yeah. So I could change the oil whenever I feel like it should change your every three thousand miles of forget the filter. Really? Yeah. Every two thousand but I was just ten actually. But maybe maybe with your experiment going in my experiment going. We can call double blind medical. Exactly. Not going to change the filter, and I'm not going to change anything. Yeah. I think to two or three thousand is the answer Hooper. But isn't this a great car? It's wonderful except three teenagers have gone through it. Greatness as teenagers on the fourth clutch. Well, yeah. Well, clutches are disposable. Yeah. You gotta just count on one teenager one clutch. I went seventy thousand last ones have gone thirty or forty thousand. That's that's not bad. We've known clutches to go one thousand. Chuck family, Mark and keep us posted. I one eight eight eight I gotta tell you story because go ahead because if I don't tell the story sooner or later, everyone's gonna know, and I figured the best way, you know, if you did something wrong the best way to do this catharsis and get it get it out saying the media get it over with get it over with. I'm going to tell us everything you did. Did you inhale? Yup. Fumes. The other day at the shop. We were putting replacing a couple of calipers on a Mazda rea- calipers and one of my mechanics. Head install the Manny had installed them. And when he was finished on the asked me if I could help them bleed the brakes, the car was a miata. So I say sure, so he has the Carling halfway on the lift, and I kind of jump into it with one leg, and he says, okay, in the way, you do this is you pump the brake pedal pressure gets impression. He opens the bleeders and a combination of air bubbles and fluid comes out, and you do this until there's no more air coming out, and you're done in Chris the person inside the car knows that you've done because the brake pedal feels like it, should you know? So he's at the left rear wheel. And I'm in the car and I- pump the pedal, and he says, okay, hold down. And he opens the bleed, and he says, okay pump it again. And I do that in the opens the or and after three or four. Times he says she there's not much coming out here. And I said well keep trying probably a lot of air in the system and do it again. And while I'm doing it. He's kind of leaned over, and he's looking inside the car, and he says to me very quietly pumping gas. But your secret is safe with me eight. Eight. I don't know. What is definition the secret people coming up to me that tired day that I had never seen before made contact with any way? This and most of three pedals one of the middle. I mean, so I figure I had to make a clean rest of it. So to speak because everyone's gonna know sooner or later, it's better they better they hear from me for Manny lifts. Lifts but most people will not hear from you'll because Manny has set up a website. Email chain. Let's go of middle pedal. Anyway, one eight eight eight car talk today. It is said, that's what happens. The pinnacle recently at the pinnacle of his mental prowess. And now, I can't even pump a brake pedal, man, how fast we have fallen below your car talk. Hello. My name is Susan in calling from Charlotte. Vermont. A lot. Yes. Under spell that. The same way spell Charlotte where near the French border. Hall. Nice book. How are you? Susan. Well, I'm actually frightened. And I'm hoping that you can save our household from some impending peril. What? Well, we were without power for about a week during the great ice storm. We had. No, he no water. No, playlets flashed. And my husband who is theoretical physicist. And I'd like to stress theoretical part. He wants to get something that's called an inverted that will get electric power from the car battery. Interestingly we've just received an Email about this the other day on our site. Somebody wanted to note may have been your husband even. Been somebody somebody from up north there wanted to know if in fact, you could buy an invert or that would take the twelve volts from your battery inverted to twelve volts DC and change it to one ten AC in the answer is yes, there is such a vice, of course of ice. To blow up. The car don't well, we're going to get back to the theoretical part of this and the minute. Says to me, oh, you don't need to understand this. Well, first of all your car alternator puts out about fifty amps of electricity times, twelve volts is six hundred watts. So you could run six light bulbs. You cannot run your electric hot water heater which takes about six thousand watts nor can you run your furnace or even an electric coffee pot, which I think takes twelve hundred watts and that's before any of the losses incurred in the transmogrify -cation power because you're going to change the DC to AC that step up the voltage from twelve to one twenty. And when you do all this losses for heat, which wanna theoretical basis. We know don't exist. That's right in the friction this world in which your husband lives. All things are possible to light a few light bulbs. Using the hundred horsepower engine your hood. You'll be much better off going to Home Depot and buying like a six thousand watt generator. Yeah. I mean on the other hand, it's not a bad thing to have. Because I I mean invert is have been around for decades. I had one of these invert is in my old old Fifty-three dodge and it worked great. I could run one lightbulb off of which was cool because when I broke down which was every week I had in my trunk a fifty foot extension cord with a hundred watt bulb in it. And people were amazed to see me under the hood with a real extension cord and one hundred one say this. So I mean, these things have been around the technologies a million. But the problem is exactly as my as my brother has said that you don't get very much power out of it. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't have one dart the furnace the oil oil burning furnace. All know, you're going to have to go for that. You'd have to go to the depot for that. Okay. Well, you know, he did rig up a light bulb from the sailboat battery during the crisis and sparks flew. I was gonna say he's not completely worthless. The cable burned out. And he said, oops, oops, oops, makes me very nervous about this other. But your advice is definitely no I can pass this on. No, no. That's not what we said. We said this is not a bad thing to have. And it wouldn't be bad to have a couple hundred watt bulbs. If you had nothing else that he won't be able to run the furnace with it. Okay to run a few light bulbs. And if that can bring you comfort on cold and bleak night, okay? In the upper reaches of Vermont. Why anyone would want to live there? We don't know. But you've chosen to live there. Yeah. That's true. That's true. Well, I hope we haven't helped I hope. Yeah. Get the inverted. It's not bad. Okay. Thanks husband is not as Rackl as we thought. He would be. No. But don't trust him. He sounds. I don't wanna let out any military secrets, but we have is he work. Actually, he works at home. He writes physics books. Healy all that sounds awfully fishy to me. He's working at home. I'm tony. He's working on the Philadelphia experiment. Just Susan sometime when he's like in a semi conscious state. You know, he's half between waking up and sleep whispering his year. Philadelphia experiment and see if he just sits bolt upright in bed. That's all would happen. And report back to us. Definitely was as soon. For the pleasure to talk to you.

Orig- is on demand. Your show your schedule. Fifteen minutes after ball dot com. Check out the casts at richeisenshow dot com. All right hour. Number two. The rich Eisen show is on the air. It's a run rich run Wednesday. The folks here in the thoroughfare outside the AT and T studios here on the campus of AT and T in Los Angeles, California running their forties. I'll be heading to Indianapolis after the show or doing a radio only show tomorrow in Indianapolis, Brockman, we'll be at the Mike for that. One. Pat mcafee. Charles Davis, Steve Mariucci, and the new benefactor, I guess that new chairman of the af owner of the Carolina Hurricanes. Tom Dunton in studio is well, it'll be a lot of fun that day newses, pop and everywhere, I mean, Steve time the general manager of the Arizona Cardinals today saying that Josh Rosen four now right now for sure is their quarterback. And everybody's wondering what what you mean by the right now stuff what I'm saying? Is that he's leaving his options? Open number one pick overall. Oh, you do have that sound bite. The will. Okay. We're going to find out what Steve calm actually had to say. We'll let Chris Mike del tufo, you got that. You got it working? Okay. Go from you know, again, it's still early in the process through evaluation at all the positions. So really again too early to say. Shasha was quarterback. Yeah. The is right now for sure. Then again, I'm telling you is right now for sure he said a very fast, nobody. But when you say right now, I mean is Tom Brady of the patriots quarterback. Yes. Okay. All right is Sam darnold. The jets quarterback. Yes. Philip rivers the chargers quarterback. He is Josh Rosen. The cardinals quarterback. I mean right now for sure see what I'm saying. And the reason why he saying that in my estimation is he's keeping his options open. If you love Kyla Murray. Guess what we might take them to come up and get him. Or as Daniel Jeremiah said last hour, and he joined us, and as I'm gonna be in the booth with him for the combine for an absurdly longtime on the NFL network starting at nine AM eastern on Friday for the onfield drills. He said, why wouldn't they take Mari? First overall flip. Josh Rosen for another first round selection. This year. Then. Use some of that firepower that this second round selection at the top of the. Friday night. The first pick of Friday night, flip that to the Steelers. Fran Tonio Brown with a little bit of sugar on top. And you got Larry FitzGerald Christian Kirk Antonio Brown, David Johnson. And Kyla Murray for the new wonder Kende Xs and os man for the Arizona Cardinals and cliff Kingsbury and. Sounds pretty good. That's pretty good or Rosen is that guy. And you you save yourself. And you get Nick Bose instead. Yeah. Totally put with channel Jones. Talk about bookings. Nick foles isn't going to be tag either. According to Schefter, lots of news pop and all over the place Aaron Jones the Green Bay Packers running back will be joining us here shortly in studio. But I I love this guy every single time. I see him and what he's here to promote makes me love even more on behalf to try spread the word about United Airlines in Special Olympics shared commitment to build a more inclusive society pro football hall of Famer all time Chicago, great first ballot pro football fan Rama say Bronner lacquer back on the program. How are you Brian? I'm retire. You buddy, I'm fine. Where where are you are you in the desert, south Zona? Yes. Hey, does a lot of different issues put out right there. Trades and signings and those those pretty good. I like that little scenario put up the car, you know, what Brian. I mean that would be like me saying when you were playing. Hey, man, some interesting tackling you doing right there. You know, very true. Oh, good at what you do that. I don't know. I don't know why I'm Brian. That's all I really wanted out of you. Doesn't it? I mean that would be something for the cardinals. If they could pull something like that off Carla Maria, I think he's awesome. Yeah. Awesome. Okay. What what do you like about them? I liked it. He runs really fast for and good. He seems to be pretty smart was making slow ball. And you look at using the same system. Baker Mayfield was in. I know different skill sets, blah, blah. But man, it's just either priciples what he can do. Yeah. But wouldn't you is a if back in the day when you were playing? Hey, here comes a guy who's not even five foot ten at you wouldn't you on the defense? They bring him on. Yeah. But at the same time, you gotta catch him. He's he got. Got the speed as long as you said in when he got a little five guy at you. It's I mean, I shouldn't say little, but when you gotta find thing I run at you. It's not easy as people make it sound the tackle those guys at once you get a hold them down. But it's not easy to hold them. So it's a lot of food for thought. Because no to Brian this is this is the moment right now. If this kid is at top five top ten draft choice this year as we're expecting him to be this is the in my mind, maybe the to the complete transformation of the twentieth century or the twenty first century college football being brought to professional football and the spread in the the RPO's and all of that that this would be the full on admission from all of the talent evaluation community, even though it just takes one team to say that it's a whole brave new world. It's different changing. You know? Yeah. You know to just to you know, also I'd be bigger basically after number one I year. I wasn't. I was kinda surprised. But I I thought he was the best quarterback in the draft, you know, and that out there and prove that this amongst other rookies and play three damn good night for just for the rookie. You know, you've situation with the team wasn't very good the year before and then we're not a game this year. So I don't think Ray being quite dad impacts. But man, he just what he did last year. You gotta think that got help situation a little bit. Brian are back. Appro flip a home fame. Joining a year on the show. What was the your combine experience like in two thousand wrathful, man? So I wasn't gonna run or releasing when I went there because everyone back into a man like, you should wait, you're probably because you're gonna run faster more comfortable, blah, blah, blah. So and then I got out in a meeting with the bears coach Bosch 'cause we Ryan tomorrow. I said, no, sir. I was advised not running goes, what do you got to hide you're in shape? I said, no, I was advising attorney goes. Are you nuts? Asked are you can you not do drills? Like, no, I can do it was non so he goes feel like you're hiding from if you don't run. So of course, it went on the next day. Thank goodness. I did his his was, you know, every GM's here every scouts here every head coach. And then they're not going to be pro day. So this is your best chances. Showcase your Bility's in front of every single one of them. That was Greg blush. Right. The jeffords. Right. Yeah. Right. So who's the head who did you have any meetings with the anybody named mccaskey? I mean who else did you chat with from the bear? They were in our meeting, Mark. There are GM time strong was America's nearby. But I don't remember, you know, at that time, everything 'cause you go from being the meeting and just you know, you're trying to answer questions properly. So I don't remember. I remember coach Schwartz the decorator is he still Philly. Yeah. So he was he was a DC at Tennessee. At the time. He was tough on me Manu's asked me some questions you how would you help our team? Why should we draft? You do we don't know if you'd be able to help us they're not outside. I don't know. I think I'm pretty fascinating tackle people. Did you did you get? Did you get asked any of those crazy ask questions? What's what's the craziest question? You remember that was asked of you at the combo locker to witnessing for me was just walking around shirl fall day three hundred guys there every every where you go. No one's dressed. But you know, it's a meat market. You know, so those for those two or three hours while you're doing your weights and your measurements with walking around. They're like big deal. You went. Just weird you aren't flexing. Brian come on. You weren't doing it on them were flexible time, I didn't need this lex young. I was nobody citing different now. But. Walk around flex. What you ran. I ran a four five eight or seven at the combine. And I was so happy that was this loader red spectrum too. You should know that with your forty days, you know, that as many of you should be. How that goes? Well, my forty days are still going Brian. When was last time. Oh, yeah. Those that forty time I noticed that or that's just me getting faster, Brian. But you know, that could just be that you actually because it's pleasant change in the years. But I think it's more rich. Thank you. I'm fine wine. Brother, you knew you know that. And as you as you know, I have the aero dynamic dome for that sort of thing. I don't think that's the big deals. You think it is? But it could help you a little bit maybe ten or one hundred. I don't know I'm gonna get into this right now, Brian, you know, I always this part of our conversation. And at some point at some point, I'm going to sneak in Jay Cutler, as you know out to end. The tradition. Unlike any other, okay, I'm actually thinking looking at prime looking at Dion. He looks great looking at you to actually I'm actually thinking about it. You should do it.

They take out the beds and their desk, and you sit there, and you have your fischel you're meeting with them by fifteen minutes, and it can go one or two ways they can go in there and grill you on your college film, or they could complement you. And have you John up stuff on the board? And just to see what you know. And so you're accu- Aaron Jones here in the rich Eisen show. The for those who may not know what you just described is the the interviews take place in a hotel in Indianapolis that fifty one other weeks of the year is there for tourists to come in with an indoor pool as well. Definitely. And you have to be careful that you don't walk into it. And that the interview rooms are just regular rooms that people stay in they removed the beds, the head boards are still attached to the wall. It's a weird situation is the whole set up is the train station. I mean, it's right when you walk in the hotel room, they earplugs. Okay. You might wanna put these in at night. That's right. It's near the train comes through. So that's already waking you up. Right. And then you're fifteen minutes with your team is up when somebody blows an air horn air horn. And then you get out you look at a laminated around your neck to say which ruins throwing to remember. So you're not like so you're or garage, you know, which room you're going to who you're meeting with so, and then they wake you up to p and a Cup at three in the morning, and then have you work out an entire day, and then send you to the airport, and you're like what the hell just happened. Go on stage in front of the coaches and just in your spandex feels like a little meat market. I mean, you go on stage. They Karcher highway nothing. But you're spending. I mean, I don't mind him athletes of. They're flexing was asking earlier if he was flexing back in his day on stage flex hard work. I bet you are. Did you leave thinking I think the Packers? You're gonna take me if I'm there or what? I don't know who's going to take me at the Thomas like I thought I was just happy I had perform well. I felt like I had made a name for myself coming from Utah felt like was kind of underdog. So not a lot of people knew about me. But after the Cobb on I left, there are people at least knew a little bit about me or knew my name. Well, he's certainly know your name now Aaron Jones that's for damn short. And the way that you are balling out to me, if you don't mind me opinionated in front of you. You weren't used enough last year. How would you respond to something like that that statement responded that is I just I'm just ready? When my number's called a coach told me go in the game go into gave it on make the most of every opportunity again. I I think that's what everybody should do. And when you when you don't know when you're next step's gonna come when you try to make the best of every opportunity in you're playing ball to the wall. He's which. No, you're talking about footballs dukes. No. But by the way, that's very clapping for very politically. Correct. Answer over there. Good job. You're very good at very good at that part of the game to look I mean to me everyone was talking about Roger's needing to have some sort of pressure removed offensively, you're the yearly guy that can come out of the backfield. You can catch it. We saw what you did against Seattle. What was it like in the huddle with Aaron Rodgers towards the end of the McCarthy stay there was it is uncomfortable as as it was reported to be at all. No, it was never comfortable uncomfortable. Anytime I've been there. I mean, I'm not in the headset. So I don't know what's being said and communicate in in the quarterbacks headset. But I know these in the huddle for us. It was never uncomfortable. It was always clear cut where we're going to do and go to line. And if it's a bad, look, we're gonna out of the bad look into something we practiced all week. So what is Aaron Rodgers relationship with you? What does he say? To you. What what do you say to him? I love Aaron. I mean, he's he's a great guy. He's a leader. He he just comes in. He he make sure everybody's in the right mood like he's getting you in the right mood. If you come in and see see you down. He's going to joke with you try to get pick you up. He'll just stop by. How you doing today just little things? And you know, if the best point your team can do that anybody else can do that. Do you mean by pick you up like he sees if you're down or something more energy or something like I mean? I mean, every it's a no nobody wants come into work. Everyday people are going to have their their days where they don't wanna come in and has a sixth sense. And he can sense that and he'll come over there. Hey, let's go is is okay. Blah, blah, blah. And or will be on the field, and we'll stall driving come out and he'll get he'll get down on his knee. Anyway, are this where we're going to do? We're gonna go down. I'm I I recall Dallas my rookie year. I think it was like a minute minute left in the game comes down gets in the huddle on an ISA are yards over yards over Tom outs, getting outta balanced yards. Fires and to class gets down. We're gonna come out and we're gonna win this game. We're gonna drop down. We're gonna win this game. In those are back show to to devante atoms and win the game. Was this the playoff game at your? No. This was during the regular season two thousand seventeen. That's got to being something when he comes in. And he's basically say this is what we're gonna do. And then you go ahead and do it. Sorry. I mean is that I never wanted out and we came in the huddle. And so that never once. Right. What's have you had a conversation where you new head coach, actually? Okay. What did Matt leflore tell you know, just saying that what kind of seen schemes they use very similar to Tennessee. And what they do and the incorporate the bags and they use the bags and likes to be balanced run play action run game. So I'm I'm very excited. So the way that we saw Dion Lewis employed or the way that we saw Derrick Henry employed is what the way that you're going to be employed. He didn't really give me either one. But I'm just I've seen the way he used both in previously. Atlanta the way he us Tevin me and devante Freeman. And so that just excites me like he knows how to use running backs in. Everybody knows they'll give me wrong everybody how to use running backs, but you see him used to run back system in. He's like, okay. You're you're for this. You're cut for that. I'm just trying to get a sense of what what what you what's your goal for next year. Then I mean 'cause again you had what I would think is a breakout to me. I'll tell you what I've been saying here. You know, you the way that you were employed the way that you looked is. Well, you reminded me in a way of what I was seeing from Kareem hunt on the field. Obviously that what I saw from him out of the chiefs. I'm like, that's that guy. He can be that guy for the Packers. Do you see yourself is that guy? Well, yes, are very similar whom as well. As Kamara games are a little bit of the same. We can as well dressed Phil catch the ball out of the bag photo as well. So I agree. Okay. What is your golden? I mean for the Packers on goal is to help us get back in the playoffs and make it to the Super Bowl. That's that's the mangle of your game. What do you think? My me personally. I want to lead the league in Russian. I want to lead the league in yards per carry only the league in touchdowns. You know, the how obviously how difficult that is obviously or let's put it this challenging is. That is who do you reach out to on that front to for guidance? Who is there any colleagues that you have around the league or something like no God. I mean, everything I do do guys. So I mean, my parents are reach out to my brother. I have a twin brother who plays reach out to Alvin Alvin at the he's linebacker in Baltimore PSA. Okay. And you have a youth football camp with with Alvin as well. Right over twelve hundred kids attended over two days last year, the Sundell you're all about El Paso. Oh, yes. That's how this home. I love El Paso. That's home for me. Have you met that O'Rourke if you met him I met him when I was in high school once but not not recently. Okay. Yes, sir. Can't just want to know if you've I mean, he's like kind of Mr El Paso right now along with you and new brother and your. Salute to service nominee. What did you? What did you do with the salutes service program at the Packers? Oh, will I'm above. My parents are retired military and just spent a lot of time given back to the military. And so when that's part with that award is just giving your time and things you've done for military so military's I've grown I've grown up. My dad did twenty nine years. My mom did twenty seven Saab grown up in a military background on so many things on a PT in with my dad, and so many different things. So military's a big big for me. And I just wanna thank them for their their service. And last one four you train for the draft with Mahomes is that a fact the homes that we have the same agent. Okay. And you drove to his pro day, I'm trying to figure out what this is all about to Patrick's Day. I s I mean, Mia patter boys, and we were in it together going through the whole combine process, and we. In that work together and my day came right? A couple of days right after the combine. So I I was just training had free time or catching balls from him. Do he's getting you ready, and you get him running twenty of them. No, no, look passes. Now, he he's showing he could do it out there. But he did I didn't catch any from not from a left handed. He throwing left handed to he asked. Don't have seen them do that what a year, and what are your for you too, man? I'm very pleased for you to see what you've done on the football field, and the the future your your crucial component in my mind for what the Green Bay Packers are going to do this this year any talk at all in in any Packers circles, I'm not talking management, but Antonio Brown any conversation. No. I mean, the conversation on Twitter do from the fans and people want in there. But no nobody in the locker room saying about eighty four nobody knows. I haven't text exchange with you or any of your player your teammates talking about Antonio. No, sir. I had to ask. He's a good job you had to. Okay. But we would look great and Green Bay though road you think of him as a team the he's a great player. I I love to play aby. He's a playmaker and more playmakers. You can get on one team better be ham. Devante Adams you Aaron Rodgers at the controls. The new devante Adams's, very slipped on is very what do you mean? By that. I feel like a lot of people don't give give him is respect as they do. A lot of the other receives across the league. He's more of a quiet guy. He stays to himself. I mean, you'll see mak- catch hill who show himself a little bit. But he's not he's not out there as everybody else's. And so I feel like he doesn't get the respect as everybody else does because he's not he's not a chess Pounder. He he'll he'll he'll he'll let you know when he makes a play. But he's not. Hey, I'm this that so okay. Well, look man, come come here anytime at Showtime with a y underscored thirty three on Twitter and also Instagram, and I appreciate you. Come here. Good luck to you.

Stay tuned for sixty seconds of AP news headlines, right after this podcast. Welcome back to the rich Eisen show. Oh my gosh. Andre from security. Became this year's that guy. He did. And they run rich run if you will forty yard dash run here on the campus of AT and T Andre left. His post is exactly why I'm not running. Took the header slid safe. I mean. I mean. We're watching right now. Slide ten feet. He got up. He's okay. He's okay. And safe to say the perimeter has been resecure here AT and T with security where safe while we were not on seven safe enough people. But it's true to use the Jack Bauer phrase the perimeter has been secured notice twenty four that the cell phones worked all the time. No matter where they were. They always had reception. They'll always worked they never eight or went to the bathroom true. Great like, okay. Jack, we're running out of time. And then they cut to Jackie's on the bathroom. Just like reading the sports section. I'll be there. And we never saw that on twenty four twenty four. So do I I miss it. Suzy's ringtone on her phone is the phone's. Yeah, she got that. That's her ringtone whenever the phone goes off. It's it's always twenty four in my household. You, you know, look Aaron Jones, and that's the one. Is that yours to? Yeah. Forever. Yeah. That's your ring Trevor here 'cause I always have silent. But of course, yes. 'cause you're an audio executive who understands that you're always you can't have your phone get by that is a if I'm not mistaken back in the day and NFL total access. It was a five dollar fine. If somebody's foam went off ten dollars. If it went off on the air. And then my the text is the watch ready. What? More. That's actually, and you just heard folks, this is one of my favorite things about Mike del tufo. Yes. You just witnessed one of my favorite things about Mike. When he tells you something about happen that you need to listen to he says watch. 'cause I moving my hands. I know that but it's not your actions. Just give a list like listen. But you know, what I'm saying? I thought your favorite part was making every story about himself because you're telling something about your wife, and then he's like. Look, I do too. But you don't know I do it because I'm a professional, and I keep my phaser on stunned during the show you can hear it. Very good. I don't think we are. Giving enough credence so far to the fact that the eagles are gonna let Nick foles go everyone. Good-faith move. I don't I think so because when they couldn't get a trade partner could be one of either like, hey, they're going to get the third. They're going to get a third round compensatory pick for him, right? In twenty. It's also a good faith because otherwise would have been. Telling Nick, thank you for everything. But we don't trust you. But it would have been the ultimate business maneuver. Hey, our business is winning football games in the NFC east. You're terrific. But we just can't see it. We cannot see you twice a year in the same world where everybody is making a maneuver to send somebody to a conference where they see him only once every four years. This is kind of it is a classy move unprecedented. Kind of or they just feel like, okay, if we see them twice a year for Washington. We know we'll we'll know how to beat them. But if this is in fact, the end which it is what an incredible run Nick foles had with the Philadelphia Eagles. What happened the last two years? The only thing that anything that's been seen like it before this year was Jeff Hostetler taken over for Phil Simms in the NFC east for the giants winning the Super Bowl with OJ Anderson and parcels winning the second one for for Bill and not I I don't think we've ever seen Nick foles period, though, because you can also say Kurt Warner his magic carpet story, but that was a full year of the so-called backup taking the starters role making it his own winning the Super Bowl Tom Brady Brady. I mean it was week too. But Brady also came off the bench. Facing? His start his ascendancy his story still being written. We'll never see that again. But we also haven't seen foles because he did it again, you did it again, they didn't win the Super Bowl again. But they were Super Bowl ready like it was an unfortunate alshon Jeffery tip drill interception. They were out there. When wouldn't even winning that game? I felt that I saw saints fans were seeing to like it's happening again. Can we blame alshon Jeffery for this whole replay genetic? But then as you know, the eagles started slow in that game. The sort of fascinating Saint started slow and then came back. They let this they they let well fake punt. It was fourteen about I'm jogging the memory here for everything leads up to the one moment where you can't come back from it. And that's what everyone's pointing to the competition committee needing to do something on replay. And that's it's not gonna happen. But in terms of foles, they're just gonna let them walk. This is going to be amazing. The new league year is going to be amazing. It's going to be left bell Antonio Brown. Nick foles where these guys going could Odell Beckham junior being this mix when it was all said and done. Those are big names. And those are big names that could tilt the balance of power. Can I do a quick hot take plank? Oh, yes. Unexpected hot take plank on a Wednesday combine week. What do you got? Great tap dancing. The rich Eisen show hot take plank in my hands. If Levy on bell signs with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the bucks win the NFC south. I'll come on. Arians with lev bell. And what he if James Winston takes two areas in the same way that Rothlisberger and Andrew luck. And Carson Palmer every quarterback that he has coached untouched. Every single one of them. When they're healthy have been better than. Than before would that make Bruce Arians three time coach the year. Right. Mike Lavigne's, Sean Jackson, which would be wise to stay put and not force anything. Yeah. Bell goes there and Todd Bowles coordinates the defense. That would be a huge balance shift right there. Huge panthers. Saints. Clutching this. Just like the smiley face on truecar that truecar brings you the poll question.

And I think he's he's going to join me and that high pitched screaming little boy that was captured by the yes network saying much auto the Yankees didn't need him, by the way Choi to Lewinsky a home run in his first appearance.

Donald Trump was told in advance WikiLeaks plan to release emails damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign in two thousand sixteen he was a presidential candidate who knew that. Roger stone was talking with Julian Assange about a Wiki leaks drop on Democratic National Committee. Emails Michael Cohen has been convicted of lying to congress. This is Florida Republican Greg stooping, we own this committee and the American people are expected to believe Mr. Coen's testimony. I don't know a juror in America that would believe anything Cohen. And says given his past actions in lies Michael Cohen, also said he lied about Donald Trump's involvement in a hotel deal in Moscow because Trump didn't think he would win the election.
