"There's a lot of brought about the mitch and off. You're always but they were going through a rough stretch. People really claim to the success of the hometown. Kid bill belichick and of course the association that the patriots they were the team took the field in the super bowl. As tune not introduced individually. So i really became interested in the patriots. Obviously great underdog against the the rams and back then they were. You know i think a lot differently than they would would be in future years. I started reading a lot about bella chick and the patriots. And i wouldn't say that i was a patriots fan. But that's how i i learned of gil santos and started listening to his games. Because i would. I would buy the nfl films a desks and we'll watch us three games to glory the series on the super bowl champion patriots. And i've listened to gil. Santos enraptured went to gillette stadium for the two thousand three afc championship game. Anti-law law picked off eight manning three times and it's funny because i had tickets through one of the colts marcus pollard. You also His business person who handled some of his business interests was a friend of mine. And got me ticket to the game. And i flew from baltimore to foxborough to providence. Then what the foxborough. And i was. Emma stands in the cole. Family section listening to gil santos called the patriots and just mesmerized. And so that's what. I started to become a patriot fan in a sense and then moved to boston. Started fond pages of course on the news regularly. So when i got the opportunity because i come from navy a lot of people associated the belichick name with me being high but it really didn't have a lot to do with it if anything at all. The station made the higher. But because i was living locally. And because i had learned enough about the patriots recently they thought will this guys kind of local like his work. Maybe we can sell them as one of boston zonal. And it's funny. Because i was spending most of my time at that that point traveling going the mid atlantic every week but i was still a resident. I guess technically of of new england and Knew enough about patriots and of course with the navy connection i guess initially and prove myself but that opened the door for me. I think well yeah. You don't have the accent of the you you have the you don't have an accent so they're like. Can we sell this guy as a boston person right because you always think of boston such strong accent but my question for you is. I mean you did all these navy games. How many years were you. Did you do navy games. I did sixteen seasons of navy seen so which army navy game do you remember being like having the most energy because they're all special right. They're all incredibly special and all the men and women in uniform there and it's just you know it's a rivalry but it's not you know what i mean like. It's just so special. What do you remember most about that game. Agus you're you you hit it on the head. It's a rivalry but at the end of the day. They're brothers and arms. They wanted army players. Want to be navy more than anything in the world. Same thing with navy players. There's nothing more. They want to do in their athletic careers than be army. That's the one thing you're you're measured by as an athlete at the service academies how did you do against you go to the newer kademi and and and that's ingrained in them from day. One everything around the academy yard in annapolis says eat army weights the weights that they left in the weight room. The signs on the walls in the locker room. So many of the traditions outside of the military protocols and traditions revolve around that game and the passion and energy in the stadium. It's it's palpable. You can feel it at nine in the morning when you get there. And it's electric from the time. The midshipmen and cadets brigade of shipment the corps cadets march onto the field pre-game they marched onto the field and their company formations. Gillette people who've watched the game seen it on television. When you're there on the stadium you're you're you're gripped by the emotions. The pride you feel. How impressive those young men and women are before they really are the best and brightest in this country and they're called to a higher mission. They're they're called to do something. That's more important than themselves and pani sacrifice toward that end and it's There's that feeling of reverence that that feeling goes on. Throughout the day and then accommodates of course at the end of the game and and they're gonna hit each other than they've ever had anybody in their lives when they play that game physical all out effort regardless of the score for the start of the game to the end of the game. Now when it's over the two teams stand side-by-side play their alma mater. They sing that alma mater. The winning team goes second. And you know the losing team past stand. In front of the corps cadets brigada midshipmen in the stands the hands on their hearts the players singing their alma mater and the tears are flowing down there streaks find never worse feeling in their athletic careers and then they have to run across the field and stand by the victorious payments. Never better feeling than the one that those winning players in that moment just an incredible experience. If if you ever have an opportunity to go to in person it's a bucket list event. It's buckling game but it evoked so much pride even when you watch it on television and i can't say that there was one game more than any other that elicited more excitement than the others. I will say that the two thousand and one game for obvious reasons extremely memorable are both teams were were mired in. I think double digit losing season double digit losses that year. A navy had one game. I think army had one one going into the contest. President bush was there visited both locked rooms and then presided over the coin. Toss and In fact it was a pittsburgh kid. Eddie mellon hausky. Who's the quarterback at the naval academy. You know the story of the abbas is kind of a quintessential shimin went on to serve as an officer in the marine corps kid about my high too short to play for your typical division. One teammate to slow as well but he was an option quarterback at the naval academy and when they flip the coin instead of saying heads or tails. I think he's ever met of called heads he said. Heads sir addressing the commander in chief with respect You know that always. It's it's one of the most memorable moments was was That seen on the field john mccain was naval academy graduate longtime senator and of course the prisoner was there as well which is such a solemn feeling during that game throughout an army wound up winning that two thousand one congress. Oh wasn't memorable from that standpoint for me being the navy announcer but now that's the one army navy game more than any other that I remember it was able to walk to look back and see what happens. A lot of the players that were in that game to heroes. And so when you see all these players come through navy right. Obviously you remember their names. You've called their names of course could touchdowns maters options do all these things and then as they graduate and go on and you see their names for other things you remember that does that. Bring it back and and What is that like for you because it's memorable calling football games because those games are always special and then you see these guys go on to do the mazing things that give a full freedom that we get today and so how does that feel like you.

"We are here, by the way, you know for all the people that were screaming about Why would why would Mitch for Biscay want to come back? Why not protect his arm? I think you saw it yesterday. That's why I like he's not a pro bowler. But I think Mitch Travis Key is going to if he can play decent against some bad defense's I think it's going to help his stock in the postseason and the season is opposed to hurt his stock. I never understood that if he would not have come back, he probably would would have gotten like a million dollar. Jamis Winston salary, right? Yeah, I don't know what I think somebody's going to give him a chance to be a backup. And then in fact, gender started goes down. I'm gonna get a shot, but You're not gonna get a lot of big money. So you're the salary was probably at its lowest point anyway, right? So so if you were to play you on, Lee can go up. That was my perspective again. If you're her and you can't throw the ball, I get it. I wouldn't advise that. But if you're healthy, like yesterday was the example is the explanation for why If Mitch could physically do it, why he would be inspired to go out there and try to change some minds. He may go out against the Texans and fall flat on his face. But there is some tape of him now doing some better things. So like I was never surprised that Mitch wanted to get back out there. Yeah, really quick. You know, the last time the Bears had a six game losing streak. Take a guess. 2000 and three you really close. So it wasn't Trustman is bad as it was for curing even though it was a rebuild with Foxy There were no six game losing streaks that were never there was never a six game losing streak with lovey. The last six game losing streak was under dicked around, and it happened a year before you said it in 2002. Now, if you remember what happened in 2002. That's the year that they were renovating Soldier field as they were making it into one of the worst stadiums in the NFL s, so they were playing all their games in champagne. They did not have a home that year. So think about that guys that they have reached a new low in the last couple of decades that the on Lee reason they probably only reach that I know, too was because they have no home stadium. They were playing a memorial stadium in Champaign. Sleeping in a bad hotel. I'm bad beds. And playing in Memorial Stadium again, like, Listen the last two weeks. To me it is. I think it's a good summation of where this team is. And it is a good reminder to the people making decisions where they're at. You were outclassed on national television by Aaron Rodgers and the Packers the week before, and this week and inept group of Lions came to town and rallied to beat you. And hung 34 on your defense That is supposed to be the hallmark of what you are. So whatever Go ahead crash. Do you know? Do you know the other thing that that 2002 season is known for besides a six game losing streak? Legend has it. That's where the there's a time out on the field. Anything terrible. There's a time out where on the field apparently that started started to get you. Well, you are a legend in the stadium is that that's where that started. I was hosting the pre and postgame show for home games, and we did it at a bar. It was Mongo, Me and the late great Dave Duerson. And we would sit watching that team. That was the year that waddled met Tom Brady trying coming off the elevator. Yeah, I went down. My father in law was doing the color commentating for the team for the Patriots at the time. So my wife and I drove down there and had dinner. Gino and Gil Santos and their entire broadcast team, and I said I brought it football with me because I needed something signed for a charity event. And they called Tom Brady and he came down and he came off the elevator. And it was his majestic is could be. It's how will you sign my football? Yeah, I was shocked at two things. How tall he was. And how damn handsome he wasp. Who said that, though of Donald was that Brady to watch his nose going? Yeah, there was water. There was one. There was one man in all of another man. It was waddling off Tom Brady Guilty. I mean, I think the bears little big lead to the Patriots that year two coming off of their Super Bowl, win its first mark in the franchise. Yeah s o. I want to play you a montage coming up. We'll do that. And then after in the next segment of everything that did go wrong in the last few minutes, But let's get back to the phone lines right now. Bobby is in Portage. Bob, You're on ESPN 1000. What's up? Hey, guys. Thanks for taking my call. Um, just wanted to say I'm 59 years old, And I think I can count on one hand the amount of times that the Bears have actually been competitive where you thought Steam actually is a chance to go all the way. Um I wish big picture. I know it'll never happen, but I'm not saying anyways. Is. I wish the NFL would find some billionaire out there. I just wanted an NFL franchise but a second franchise in Chicago and make the McCaskey's actually earned their loyalty from their fans by putting out a product that we could be proud of. For a change. That's it, Uh, hang up on the list. Loveless Leader show guys. Great job. Thank you very much. Mayor Daley always wanted that He wanted the Cardinals back in town or not the cardinal from a city standpoint it. I mean, it's gonna create massive revenue. I could understand economically why you would want a second team here. I I echo what you've said a ton. George wants.

I mean the green the white and Tommy and that like there's they're synonymous and I I don't know what Celtics basketball looks like without Tommy heinsohn. He'll my dad was born in nineteen fifty-seven for god sakes so by definition for the year the Tommy lights and one that you know start as a rookie and they became Champions that year. So this is it's this is this is generational wage. This is there is nobody who more personifies the Boston Celtics than than Tommy heinsohn and I just I'm kind of at a loss. It's just it's such a wage. Be its life well-lived.

"Good way you save money so she got a call about a guy could not common fifteen minutes you say fifteen percent or more on car insurance taking your calls and talking about Tom Brady here's what I started with today right far of Peyton manning Tom Brady all kind of lumped together in a way although Tom Brady is that that bread farms end of his career and I know there was a lot of romanticizing about the end of the careers of Brett Farr and paid manning are we there with Tom Brady eight five five two one two four C. B. S. was totally in San Francisco kicking off our two of the grass show on CBS sports radio Leo good yeah a good afternoon great show yeah I'll be Tom's done I mean the dude healthy it's just people are dropping passes the foreign think I mean he's he's got a ton of respect I think you could feel when love yeah our goal for Saxon peoples of weight and downed trees not like you've taken a big hit you know for those of us who fly to send me Leo thank you man and and look I I think what the patriots have done a good job over the years is making sure the Tom Brady is protected and producer Tom and I were talking about this in the old off air show Brady in the pocket why give you're gonna watch this game this afternoon watch Brady's movement in the pocket it is amazing so but will will sort of do some football vernacular here bomb when the back foot hits on a quarterback me when they're dropping back when that back foot gets set they want to get that ball out then there a quarterback to win that back foot sets in Brady's had this happen to them this year they have to do what they call climbing the pocket Tom Brady is one of the best pocket climbers of all time because it's not just straight forward it's laughed it's right he has an innate ability to be able to find the hole in the pocket for him to be able to throw the football what he can't deal with are people who can't get open what he can't deal with is massive avalanche of pass rush up the middle and more he can't deal with is the maddening inconsistency off on one play the right tackle gets beat and then on the next play have an eight yard gain announcer into the slot receiver can get off of the jam and Brady throws incomplete that those are the kinds of things Brady is gone nuts over I'll give you a quick example in Houston game Dore set I needed to run our route in the back of the end zone where the point of access for where his route depth should be in the back of the end zone is not up against the M. line but it's supposed to be at the top of the letters of the logo in the end zone so when people say what a guys like Tom Brady and Peyton manning and people like that why are they so meticulous notes about the details this is a perfect example of it not only did fill door said need to run a route one across the back of the end zone he should have done it where his depth what is it the top of the logo in the end zone so that Brady had room between the top of that will go in the in line to sort of throw him the football so as you're thinking of someone running across the field and the union to throw the ball a little deeper you can judge as the quarterback Hey I can put it to the left of this guy in the way he's running all yeah keep it out of harm's way in pushing towards the back of the end zone it'll still be able to have room to get his feet it just like anybody who runs around up the sideline you're not supposed to run right up against the sideline you're supposed to run about three to four feet away from the sideline and not get re directed inside or out so that way the quarterback has variance toward the sideline foldable is a meticulous damn straight it is it's also the father of a guy who has a PhD in his offense and needs people to be where they need to be so the one the first line in the pocket he can trust then his pre snap breed and the people are going to be where they need to be and that they're not rounding off routes which was an issue of Muhammad sunu when he first got to New England there was a play in the Philly game or Brady almost an interception in the endzone you know why go back and watch the route horse crap a horse crap from route well Muhammad sunu rounded that thing off he didn't break sharply any didn't drive back towards the football little things details when people look at it and say well how come he can't work with the young wide receivers because in all honesty Philip Berg skews me Russell Wilson is not holding DKA Metcalf to that kind of standard he isn't by D. K. Metcalf would not be able to play New England because the routes that you run aren't very precise but that's what that calls for an all by the way they got a twenty year history of success there did they should be doing it that way but you get my point is that for for a guy like Brady that's the kind of stuff that he's looking at but that's also the stuff he will look at if he were to go to another team do they have this do they have that it's not just all they get this play they got that player it's does that kid is that dye capable of doing what I want him to do is that particular wide receiver right like say Tampa want to get rid of James Winston and they said Tom Brady will give you thirty million dollars for one year come play for us we have OJ Howard with these great wide receivers you will watch as guys on film and say I'm not gonna be able to get those knuckle heads up to speed to the way I want things done and Ariens running their offense right like vats but those are the kinds of things that may ultimately drive Tom Brady away from the game he always had broke he always had rob Gronkowski now I'm I look at it and say why McKinney beat up my legacy is intact why don't I just walk away and by the way we are all for you will be playing football two thousand twenty one eight five five two one two four CBS do do do folks across America romanticize about the end of Tom Brady's career the way we did Brett Farr and Peyton manning mark is in Denver actually talking about the buffalo New England game believe it or not mark is next on the grass show on CBS sports radio market afternoon it's still going to be here voice again I missed your you were gone it's great to have you up on your gonna love your show well moving forward talking about buffalo Hey I'm tell you what man I'm gonna lay it down I'm given a surprise that this was not there I'm giving for doctor for your buffalo that they could not really one box won't tell us what is going to be interesting playoff picture I don't you forget I see you know what choose to do their own alone they lose of course she's probably gonna lose but they're going to come down to could be a great week seventeen next week it took over the bridge and well if she should already be Tennessee I don't want you to come out of the conference record well it's head to head down considering its division they go head to head first so that game still factors in a March thank you brother I appreciate yeah you know mark I do disagree with you in that New England I think wins today following Baltimore is one on Cleveland is it on him and more really honestly I think clean is gonna get beat soul handily by Baltimore it'll be easy to fire Freddie kitchens Kansas city is probably went in on Sunday night football M. knowing one wins buffalo's locked in as the five and you can pretty much walk that in anyway because even if the pager to lose to buffalo they can still win the division by beating Miami next week the tie breakers are going to matter now as it stands right now if it comes down between Pittsburgh in Tennessee I'm reading here that it says wins tie break over Tennessee based on best winning percentage in conference games where Pittsburgh right now six and four in the conference Tennessee is six and five in the conference because I didn't know he was talking about the vision or if it was the whole wild card scenario there with well with Tennessee in Pittsburgh but basically there are seven teams who can make it into the playoffs in the a FC one of either Pittsburgh or Tennessee is likely to be left out now let's remember to Tennessee can win that division the Texans lose to Tampa today Sir Thomas who tweeting about that at producer underscore Tom on Twitter the whole bill o'brien run in the bill o'brien experiment down there you know will point you look at it and say okay this is who we are and we're either on the right track and we think we're gonna break through war Hey we've come as far as we can with this guy let's look to maybe grab someone else it could be a tough decision for Kalmyk they're down there in Houston but what say Tennessee wins the division in Houston is the sixth seed as the wild card that means Kansas city Houston and Tennessee buffalo Tennessee buffalo wild card round mean that says that's every bit as bad as Jacksonville buffalo two year three years ago or two years ago now once that be a rough watch Luther is in Nashville looser you're next on the grass show on CBS sports radio how are you very good on the radio catch that work

a great deal Santo story of back in the day in Atlanta Gil used to smoke so Gil was retained darts in the booth and right next door was al Michaels and the network people send someone over to ask Mister Santos to stop smoking in the booth to which he replied get the name of the person who made that request because one I want to what I want to tell him to half off I want to call me by name one of the great lines ever but I digress okay why because you were talking about breeding throwing receivers receivers cutting off while chatting and things like that never got about white he does too yes there are other folks which but by the time maybe the guys that they bring it out to be reprogrammed every monetize from the old way of what they you know they just running around just briefly Foxborough at what Brady is expecting them to run yes and looser it's a really good point you bring up there and thank you I appreciate you jumping in today yes they do get reprogrammed and you know who is the one who was responsible for reprogramming them Tom Brady because look you're going to be taught the offense by the position coach in the position coach will tell you this is what you need to do this is how they like it but until you're in the situation force of habit right you just think Hey man on this thirty three all late in the third quarter yeah the balls not gonna come to me I'm not going to run this route precisely the ball goes to come to you and you're not where Brady wants you to be seen the great quarterbacks when I do not think there are many who do this the great quarterbacks are the ones who keep the attention of every player on the field because if your open you're going to get the ball now there have been times where when there are people the Brady doesn't trust his force the ball them there's no question and Gronk was Hey man from down to two in the rent is due ninety thrown up somebody on the Golan to Big Boy may complain Brady made a living off that for many many years in crucial situations and he is now that guy anymore members rainy moss before that to there is a player Randy moss jumped up and caught a ball in trouble coverage in Miami because

So can't wait to talk to get a lot of questions for love that series. If you haven't seen it yet stars, Christina, Applegate, Linda Cartolini and fantastic series only one to one season so far really good. And got a lot of questions for her. And a meantime. Waffles. There's a waffles a big sports guy for those of you don't know. And there's something that's got his knickers in a not. So I'm gonna give you a couple of minutes here to get this off your chest. Waffles, you go. Right ahead vs. You see the thing going on the Tom Brady is now enraged, all of New York Mets nation. I have. Yes. So Tom Brady is seeking to trademark the nickname. Tom terrific. Now, for those you out there that are listening that are all while my age or, you know, within ten years of my age. Probably don't know that Tom terrific was actually the nickname for hall of fame pitcher, Tom Seaver for the couple of decades that he pitched in the major leagues including here in Boston fervor, what seven games not only seven games, but it was part of his deal that he didn't have to be with the team if he wasn't pitching. I never heard of that before, but Seaver was just. And then the other four days. Yeah, you're not you're golf there. But whatever. I assume that this isn't really Brady doing this. I assume this is some people, I'm sure, and I'm not sure that he knows about it. But even if he does, or doesn't is irrelevant they shouldn't, get the name, I think he should. That's not there's two reasons why he shouldn't. I think it's a very high standard in order to get a name trademark part of it should be that you are. Recognizably identifiable with that name. For example, Lou Gehrig, the Ironhorse. Sure. Because when I hear Ironhorse I think Lou Gehrig, salt, miss, what? Yup. Babe Ruth, splendid splinter Ted Williams, like there's certain the great one wouldn't go down the list, whatever. But there's certain names that are so obviously used. So when you hear Tom terrific, you immediately think of Tom Seaver. Yes. See. I see. Okay. But that's number one, but you don't think Brady this is the problem copyright is for protection. So that. Someone can't profit off of you anyone trademark. Yeah. Okay. But anyone selling his shirt that says, Tom terrific, no one's going to buy that. Thinking Brady will once he gets it will they can't do it then. But, but so unless Brady's now nicknaming himself. Tom terrific. It's not his name. No one goes, he's go. You wanna do. Tommy Goater Brady go to find, but he, he would be better doing that. Gio, ET than doing Tom Sawyer. He's not Tom terrific. Nobody calls them that nobody but anyways v because Mets fans are just a miserable bunch of. Anyway, they're planning to gather at an upper east side restaurant called sojourn today at five pm for a Boston tea party. See what they did there, where they will where they will dump jerseys and memorabilia of Brady into garbage bags filled with beans. I stupid with Sola. Then what are they gonna fish them out? And then wash them and take them back home with them or like, why would anyone in New York have her? So she vers former teammate arch sham ski will be in attendance at the rally to discuss the legacy of the one and only. Tom terrific, Tom Seaver while fans will hold a press conference, demanding Brady apologize to see her his family, and Mets fans everywhere soldier in the restaurant will provide free beer and food for any Mets fans in attendance. The I'm for Brady getting this just because it's made Mets Mets Twitter Mets nations. So angry and I just want them to be miserable for everything anyway, the Mets fans have pretty miserable. I'm wondering, I haven't seen it, but I'm wondering if. Tom Seaver is plaque in the hall of fame. I bet it says, Tom terrific think it does. Yeah. I think I saw the picture of it that he would have to. He is that that's absolutely him. So this is a foolish thing that Brady's people do you think that's one of the best nicknames over? Sports wise. I if you relevant, whether it's good or not. But yeah. That was his name, if you had to come up with the top ten no, I did. I see where you're going here. Li- waffles. You want to do that tomorrow. Why not? All right. So we'll do the top ten sports nicknames of all time. Tom Terrific's not going to be in there. But Tom terrific is Tom a lightning list. Yeah.

But I remember PT Seventy-three MacGill's neighbor jails name. That was a show that made him in this funny thing, why are you here? I'm going to get into this. And then now hold because I wanna make sure I'm staying focused on beer and now combine the two because that godawful movie with Tom Arnold. There was Mikhail's beer. They were really veer that was the off plot of that movie. But my point is Tim Conway was paired with Joe Flynn because they thought they made a good Carmody team, and they had an airline freight company that showing lasted one year and a little bit later on they paired him with Dr nuts, and the Disney movies the apple dumpling gang and the apple dumpling gang rides again. And it wasn't until Carol Burnett before some genius put him and Harvey. Coleman in the same scenes and that took off. Okay. Real quick on the kills navy because you was so good.

I was very pleased that you know, it may turn the radio all the Morgan. Said my goodness. And then the school so to other too, right? No can't do better than that. Okay. Take care Paul. Thank you. And I want to get back to beer and jingles and. A jingle. I remember, and I don't know how I know this because I did not grow up in the Illinois area area. But Hamm's beer from the land of sky. Blue waters comes the beer refreshing, Hamm's, beer, refreshing. I don't know how I know. That was I didn't see the commercials, but it sticks me tell me about hands. BNP beer, Dave. Sure, so ham started in Saint Paul Minnesota. Fifty six grew all through the midwest. The whole this is for valley, and they were strong brand. And they're now owned by Miller Miller has reintroduced it in a number of markets as one of their their budget price beers. So you can find it in thirty Pakistan's again all throughout the mid west of the using the same old jingle. Not so much. But that Tom Tom sort of beat of a grown right sort of jangle that was very famous in the Campbell soon. The advertising agency out of the twin cities develop that whole campaign, and they were very successful and enhance in the in the late sixties. They were trying to go coast to coast, and they own Burris in San Francisco in Baltimore than they were really trying to make it national brand that it just didn't have the success of some of the bigger guys. But they gave a really good around and it from the land of Skype. Bluewater. Let me take another call the sky is up in Maine. So you'd better be humane beers. Because Doug, I'm sure has one of those main beers to talk about. Actually what I had a question. I vowed to one you're they still make loan brow. They make lowenbraun the the Munich brand. But they don't have it made by Miller anymore in this country that contract expired a number of years ago. Lowly Brown was hard to find this country. It's part of ABM Bev, and it's mostly just as European markets. Now. Okay. Enjoyed that after work about thirty years ago. So I hadn't seen it. So many years I just figure as long since gone wasn't lowenbraun either manufactured uproot in Texas. That was one of the brewery show, the Miller brewery, they used to produce it they produce it at Fort Worth, Texas and a couple of Miller's other smaller facilities, but Miller gave it a really good run is they're super premium because like Nikola was the Budweiser low brow was for for Miller. And then after they lost the low brow contract, and they tried Miller special reserve and some other brands to really try and find a brand fit that boy that happened when the contract expired. You can never find it. It's not available in the in the US market. It may be in small pockets. But yeah, I it's not in the mid west anymore. It's been gone for quite a while because the German name low Umbro, it makes you think it was a German fear. But it wasn't. Yeah. I used to love the doc, doc the other question, I had was have you ever heard of the benefit of beer or your respiratory system? The respiratory system. I'm not familiar with that. But I know from a dietary standpoint, you know, everything in moderation is is is all right. But at the same time, you know fear is one of the greatest ways to get the vitamin b complex vitamins into your system when you're talking like half of Aisin's and other beers. Like that Jeff for some of the nutrients that are in it. Well, the reason why I brought it up because I'm almost fifty eight years old and back when I was a young man deducted respiratory problem. The doctor said if you don't find out what's causing it. It's gonna kill you. So I didn't I gotta hit forty. Well, one day. I remember having a beer and feeling a difference in my breathing. So I would have every now. And then when I was having a tightness in my chest divestiture, right? I'd have a beer now. Wind nothing else. Did it just a beer? So last year buddy go now I woke up at three thirty having respiratory attack. And couldn't be my wife wanted to go to the hospital. And I said bring me a beer in this case course, like I drank a third of it. And I was eighty five percent better immediately. Wait a minute strike the second third, and I was all better. So I typed in Google the milwak- free thirty anyway. Now beer respiratory and a whole Article K. About how the barley affects both your circulatory and respiratory system. So like, you said moderation, but inhalers don't work me. But if I get an rough spot just to have a beer with third of a beer, and I'm all better like Popeye with the spinach that that. Pretty much, and it's like you. You said moderation. I weighed two pounds more than when I graduate high school in nineteen eighty and it's like. I just I usually try to keep a the one or two in the fridge just to see works pretty good. But I thought I'd share it. Thank you for sharing. Doug. And I. Just on the on the way home from doing some work here. I got a couple more spectrum jobs to do and heading home. But thank you so much your time. And appreciate the show. Thank you for calling in good night. Now. Right. Viggo stark. And I knew now's wants to do what has been done already tonight by about ten twelve people between the top of the show and now six one seven two five four ten thirty or eight eight eight nine two nine ten thirty. That'll get you through two and beer. Dave is my guest. Now, let's talk about the collectibles one of the times. I've had you on you always. Talked about what beer cans valuable what plaques mirrors. So we have about two minutes before have to do news. Tell me about the value of some collectibles that may be in a basement or up in the attic. It's been pretty surprising to see some of the things that have been found that you know, from national brands all the way to regionals. And now, even the cranberries are coming out with things that are really growing in value as as the collectors, or, you know, even the closet collectors, they're just trying to decorate a man cave. It's we've seen quite the research in the hobby of collecting memorabilia. I have an abundance of hats and t shirts because I used to have an arrangement with the distributor. I still have the same arrangement. But not as indepth as it used to be and I have things like Molson per door. I'm just trying to go through my mind, some of the more unusual. Of course, I've got.

"Please. Welcome. The great wrestler the great champion. Run on somebody. No. Whatever success. I've had I owe it all to you. Because if you didn't come out and support me the way you did I would have never become anybody. So from the bottom of my heart. Thank you. And God bless all of you. I probably date myself when I say, not only was I there the night that coal off beat San Martino took away his title after seven years, how many months, but then a couple of years later, I was at the garden when Bruno beat Stacey and won the title back, and then years and years later, I would get to know Bruno. So I feel very fortunate in that regard, even though I date myself when I tell that story well respected and for those of you who feel wrestling is fake, it's choreographed. I have one thing to say to you. The injuries that a lot of these wrestlers very real are very very real and debilitating as they've retired and later on in the fifties sixties and seventies the can't walk now. So believe what you want. But a lot of them know, the pain of the sport, they decided to take up the moves, the stunts, very real, very real and any wrestler, and all you have to do is really sick with one and talk with one for five minutes, and they'll pay you look at their face look at their hands. Are you could just you can tell sometimes by the way, they walk because they suffer issues in that regard. So it's not not only did I know Bruno. But a very good friend for a long time was captain Lou Albano. Yes. And just sitting down next to him and seeing all the the the scars and cuts on his face. You knew what he'd been through. And would never look him. Right in the eye and say, hey, Luis at fake just by looking at him. You knew the real aspect of it. Right. Right. So where are we going neck where April nineteenth?

And there's some folks listening online from all over every place. So pretty cool. When you think about it, the reach of WBZ, and I'm gonna take the phrase, you just said and turn it into a description of you, Donna. Is the expert? All over everything when it comes to the media. If you grew up in Chicago, if you grew up in Cleveland, I feel sorry for you. But if you get up in Cleveland or Pittsburgh or New York, especially Boston. She knows the media landscape both radio and TV of communities all the way between here and the Pacific Ocean. So if you would like to Carlynn, whatever happened to Jefferson Kaye. Whatever happened to dick summer can help you with because they have dick arm once or twice a year, take a still alive Jefferson. Unfortunately is no longer with us. But if you grew up here, you listen to his hootenanny show and. There were some great personalities. Oh, you know what I was thinking about. And I just I said to myself, we gotta make sure we say something about this. When when I posted my my husband does some photography is a hobby. He took a picture of me, and he took a picture of the birthday cake. And we posted it to social media because that's kind of what you do these days. And I was wearing my patriots shirt. You, sir. Well, some of the folks from out of state, we're not terribly happy about it. But I'm like come on. I get a support the hometown team. Can't wear a shirt with twenty-seven logos. From thirty two logos. All over the NFL. That's exactly my point. But it started me thinking about it seems like only yesterday when the patriots won the Super Bowl on February third two thousand two and the late grade Gil Santos. Remember, the call of Adam venit Terry's kick, oh my God. That was whatever. Hate the patriots. An incredibly exciting game. And the play by play was just so amazing. I mean, I still get chills when I hear Gil Santos making that call electrifying as you as you just said when there are replays, and they were replays of the first patriots Rams game as you just mentioned the date, and you get to hear the call of Gil Santos. Yup. And you do from time to time and I used to tease skill. We miss him. I used to tease Gill. That it's interesting. Whenever there are commercials or promos or anything that the NFL is doing in conjunction with the TV networks or a sponsor. There are thirty two teams. And of those thirty two teams each one of them has a voice on radio and a voice on TV for the local broadcast. Absolutely nationally. Almost always chose Gil Santos dropping. Absolutely. And there are just some iconic moments. Whether you're a sports fan or not I mean, there are just some icon ick moments like like stole the ball, the lake great, Johnny most. There are some great Kurt gowdy moments. There were some great Joe Castiglione moments. I mean, there are just certain things that. You can watch it on TV. But hearing it on the radio just makes such an impression on people. I know we have some blind listeners that like they rely on radio. But even if you're cited just hearing those calls it gives me the chills even when I listen today when people replay it on anniversaries and stuff. Well, my favorite baseball broadcaster. Locally. I could say nationally fine Ernie Harwell with the title. Scully with the dodgers for a thousand years back locally. It was Ned Martin. Mercy mercy. His signature cards was just that one word. Yep. Three run home run. He out. At the plate. Evans through somebody out in the night. I got. Yes. Mercy. Absolutely. And God bless some of the local announcers, they were they were kind of the home team. They were just good announcers. Right. And by the way, since it's black history month, not be doing the right thing. If I didn't mention show Bostick and some of your New York listeners, and you have some probably remember Joe Bostick, but they remember him for doing a gospel show that was on New York radio for like thirty years, but before he did gospel he was doing play by play for the negro leagues. And also for some of the local sports in New York, and the first black sports caster that we know about was Jaakko Maxwell, and I just got done writing a pace. About him for the African American national biography, and he went on the radio as early as nineteen twenty nine. And have like a forty year career. And you wanna know how bad things were back in those days. The guy is on the year for forty years. They never paid him. Never paid never paid him. He had to support himself by working at the post office. And even though he called the games. He did the play by play back in those days in the era of segregation was like, Yep. They let them on the air, but they wouldn't pay him. And I just you know, when I read that I just thought it was outrageous. And I'm glad things have changed. Yeah. Yeah. One hundred chuckle Maxwell. I've got to take a break. But since you brought up this subject of. Lacked broadcasters. Yes. I don't know if you know a lot about this individual, right? I know you know of him. Maybe the next time you're at the keyboard or pen to the pad. Come up with a few kind words. He's he's still with us. I had him as a guest here. Maybe three months ago. Jimmy myers. Oh, yes. Yes.

And I got a chance as I said when I worked mornings on television for eleven years from ninety six to two thousand seven it spent a lot of time with both Gary and Gil, and I'm sure that Gil has greeted Gary this afternoon in a far better place and has said something to him like what the hell took you so long to get here. And they're laughing away. They were two guys with a great sense of humor when we get back and take a break. I'll take a couple of phone calls. And then we have a longer version which I'd like to play for you as well that was introduced by Karl Stevens a poet laureate here at WBZ. This is nightside. My name's Dan rates Monday night. I should've mentioned rob Brooks is in the control room. We will we will take some phone calls. But for those of you who are just tuning in Gary LaPierre an institution in this city an icon in the radio industry. I think the best broadcast news man that I ever heard. But I'm a little biased about that. We've got some great ones here at WBZ, no doubt. But I think if you asked everyone to write down on a piece of paper the name of the greatest WBZ news man over the years. Radio newsman, the the vote would come back unanimously for Gary Lapeer, and as I say we lost a great one today. And we we're pretty sad. We'll we'll get some phone calls. Six one seven two five four ten thirty triple eight nine two nine ten thirty. We'll be right back remembering Gary LaPierre.

"Wow. What a great day. It was for patriots nation. Now the patriots. I play in the red zone. The first one for the game on either side. I did. Only test out of the game defensive battle for most of the game. I mean if Bob from Plymouth who is actually down there. As we speak, and he's still he's you can still feel the him radiating excitement from the game and just have being part of history. So Bob, thanks a lot. I thank you for letting me get some of that energy. Gotta get to sleep here. Get my play back tomorrow. I gotta say it just to me. It's just an absolute wonderful experience. And it just I is much as a and it's a big hit for me. I'm okay financially. But. It's a good job. You know, when you're. For your seat. Oh, how many how much? Grand four grand for the seat to good brigade tailgate party. Oh, very nice tailgate party before him. And I watched I watched those chicken prices pretty well. And that. Kick it where I had pretty good to do for that money, but a very level. But you know, it's closer to the middle of the field. Down here. It was awesome Aerosmith and she ever hear post Malone. No. Raising the song. He does. Arrowsmith and postal law orange draws young young young kid. Arrowsmith old men like me. And and so it's an interesting like, I say pairing to bands at night where you know, post Malone. He's got a ton of number one hits out there in the rap type thing, I'm not sure what they're actually really really cool, and then Aerosmith came on with Joe Perry and everything and I was fortunate after the low five rows back from the French. Mazing pictures of guys close together hanging Perry. Tyler. Tell people today. He he I at my age, I kicked off I shred some people out of the peach Tyler seventy one at the end of the show. He changed his shirt off chess. After all these years. Yeah. I think I would have gone to the game threat with no shirt. I mean, it's just a very impressive. How you can just still run around and he gets up and top PNO and starting dream on and everything and dance around the top of the key. He's just so energetic. And great. Well, now you have a goal by next year Super Bowl you need to be in shape. Enough to take off your shirt. Well, you know, it's funny exercise diaries. The bell red kickoff church Houston. Superbowl was really cool. That was that was a free concert architects what things here. I gotta get the credit. I was in Atlanta at the obviously I was sitting. You obviously work really hard and very serious that they wanted to make sure that you know, this is reported as something. They did a really good job. Other transportation problems last time, I think that was your a couple of months ago, and they were like thirty percent short on their staffing from the rapid transit. Big table. Hey, bonuses. Now, I get out of that stadium tonight. And I was able to walk. Over to the train station coming out at Fenway park. Or is it was really nice. They obviously took everything was perfect. And again, I just can't say nothing. I think you'll probably hear all the great things that Amanda accomplish during the. The way they did. And then the last thing I. How many people? They come from. But they are holding folks up in lines security because they carry my backpacks think. Think I think about what we saw in the, you know, stupid marathon pools, but. You're thinking that people would be smart, you think people would be smart enough. Not to bring a backpack. Short-stay? Four people. Now, they have to go through Elliott stupid. Okay. There was a couple know if you're right about the couple that got the tickets. So this down here in Atlanta from Boston here, they on our honeymoon. And they decide well, you know. Atlanta. They wouldn't bought five thousand dollars worth Tuesday got proper Craigslist. Facebook, you know, and I think Boston wondering news. Pacino? We're still going to stay down here. The vibe and everything from the game. And you really. Anybody who starts to go the full arable because you know, they got burned. It's kinda sad that they don't know enough. To stop. I mean of the Craigslist, and really, and I was talking to someone tonight is much making their percentage. It's really cool to know. I mean, for example, I paid thirty one watch my ticket on was I think thirty two three two hundred but then nine hundred stubhub wraps and giving you a good too. But. When you think about it and shit. Oh, man. That's a time money stuff ups making it surely is, but it's a really critical service. We you know that we have reputable, and and we have guarantees and we don't have we can avoid situations. I got Craigslist situation. So. Wow. It was just. Good for you. Good for you. I can tell you had a great great time. And and also good for you is smart enough to marry a wife, it'll give you the freedom that you need. So right and she's a kindergarten teacher. So it's hard for her. Take time off. She said, you gotta go go. Thank you. You're right. I am blessed that way. No. It's hard to say. You know? You're going to check, you know, y you know, most folks or check at home, not everybody's wife's wonderful and everything. But I understand those by just say, hey, go do it. Probably shouldn't do it either. But it is cool to have that support your actually love it. Love it. So thanks. And joins us into time. All your callers and stuff like that day from. Oh, really? Yeah. Yeah. Cool. Take care. Bye bottom. Plymouth had a real positive experience at the Super Bowl. That's great. I am energized. By that tell you the truth that is cool. When I went down. I'll tell you my story I got nothing but time anybody else go as anyone else ever been to a Super Bowl. Share your story. I worked at W B C N N. This this happened. This happened to be the year that. I got hooked up. With season tickets. I'll go ahead and tell you my whole story. Bill Abbott took over the noontime show. And I was Gracia gracious about it, and helpful and I think he appreciated that. So he hooked me up. And I got tickets to every home game. And a parking pass for every home game and a laminated. The love me to go anywhere. Even on the field until kickoff go anywhere except the field all game. But on the field until kickoff. Can you believe that? And that includes the championship games that the Super Bowl championship camps. On the field. When they're warming up and. For the national anthem, even then it had to leave. And this is for every home game. I go down. And this is that was the year. That's no big snowball game. I don't know if it's the officials snowball game. But it was the one where they were throwing snow up in the air. Seats. And I thoroughly enjoyed it. I would go down and meet up with my friend. Dr Rick who did the kind of injury report when it was being broadcast on WBZ n. And so we would meet him in the BBC and booth have some shrimp, maybe a glass of grey goose and soda more shrimp. And then. We go maybe to the statistician booth. We walk around on the field. And we go into the broadcast booth for when the game started. And we'd. Remember Gillan, Gino? Of course. Well, I sat right. I would stand or sit right behind Gil Santos. Look it out the window and. What a privilege that is to see him. Do his thing work is craft. And. Jeez. It was it was pretty special halftime, and maybe go to the statisticians booth and talk with them, the crafts were always very very, very, very, very, very generous and straightforward and kinds could never say enough. Good stuff about the crafts. Bob. Myra Jonathan I don't know. The other brothers really was I knew Jonathan the best. I really like to have Jonathan on his show to talk about something other than football. Because they're involved in a lot of stuff. They were involved in a reforestation project in Israel, for example. And now is brothers were involved was involved in the boys clubs there must be something that they're involved in Jonathan would like to come talk about you know, during the off season. So that's went to the Super Bowl that year. And it was super cold. Unbelievably cold frigid. That year. I was living on Plum island. So we we got in this Honda pilot. Two guys driving two guys in the back like trying to pretend to sleep. Who got to do it in four shifts for eight hours shifts of driving? Mine was second Etro through Tennessee. We got down to. Louisiana. There was some casino. We went in and with us money really quickly. Got to the hotel is four four dudes. Yeah. I didn't really know them. I I was friends with them. I was I was colleagues with them. They were friends with each other. I was the odd man out. But it was cool and. I do I would do some reports. Just like had them does. Now. Tailgating reports I'm not a super sports expert. You know, I I'm not drill down deep into where the players went to school and all that my was mostly the curricular activities of the tailgating, etcetera dinner. I remember the. The game itself. And it was really really really really stressful. The pats should have leaped ahead, but they didn't. And they let Jake to Lome and crew get. Can I get used to it? And then things got pretty dangerous. And I think they won by Fuego. I what did I? Oh, yes. And of course, there's the NFL experiences. Interesting. It's an interesting thing to do. It's I got a big convention center. And they have all these little activities to do. Getting in was no problem getting that was no problem. But I I had a letdown like Bob from from Plymouth there. I know how he feels right now. Jammed up with all his energy and no place. No place to let it go. It's going to be real hard for Bob to get to sleep tonight. I totally get that. It was a good experience is probably not what I need to have again. But. I'm glad I checked it off the bucket list. You do realize I don't have anything on my bucket list. Maybe I have one thing. Okay. I've never done karaoke. That's a pretty doable. Buck bucket. Lists thing. Right. My bucket list. Empty 'cause I've set the bar fairly low in life to tell you the truth. I have not one that felt that needs to push push push push push push for while I had a professional ego. Meaning that I felt I needed to work in New York to really make it. But as that went away, and it's much better. It'd be like Brady and just kind of stay in one place. It'd be really good at it. And so that's kind of what I did. Let's take a break open lines. You can talk about whatever you want. I have thirty-six amazing facts, you didn't know about pizza. National pizza day's coming up on the ninth of February. And there are some fairly interesting facts. And I I got the best sub. I had the best sub place in the world. I've told you about it. I'll tell you about it again and have come up with a new way to eat a sub. I think it's a new way and that's coming up on WBZ. What.
