And then after a while, you had to take him off. Um Hardwood floors. You know what the Polish should you put on? So it sparkles. Do you ever have to remove that? So can you explain what Rose's talking Because I'm lost? Yes. So what Rose is talking about is you know before the invention of polyurethane and shellac saand, all of those heart coatings, wood floors were always waxed. Okay, And in many cases, that's the only option you have. You basically wax the floor, and that was your your form of protection. So what she's referring to is if she has a waxed floor, she would continue to sort of re apply that wax periodically. The problem with waxes that it loves to attract dust, dirt and debris, and every time that you apply more more wax your layer more and more of these layers on and it actually becomes an abrasive surface and actually sort of sands down or breaks down the the floor very, very quickly. So it's not an ideal scenario. And as a matter fact a lot of Cleaning products on the market. Today, David have oils and waxes embedded in them to leave her floor shiny. So if you're cleaning product that you're using will leave your floor shiny. That is a sign that that really that they're layering and coating your floor and wax and oil, which in the long run, we'll do your floor complete. You know, Harmon into service, Rose, I'm gonna make your weekend. I'm sorry. Another question Rose what he had. And how do you remove the wax? What do you use? So we have the ability to come in and actually buff that wax off in If it doesn't come off in the buffing process rose, we can re finish the floor. In other words, we can put the floor through a full sanding in re finishing process and replace the wax with a polyurethane surface, which will make it a lot easier for you, you know to maintain going forward. Okay, Great. Hank. We're going to send you Mr for cleaning product I want I want you to try it Rose and call back and let us know how how it works on your floor.

"That's a possibility. And you do want to get yourself ready for the playoffs. But that probably is going to be an anticlimax. But this one is big with Cleveland. You verywell could see the Indians in the playoffs. Surgeon Jo Brand mark Arm with until five o'clock. Campaign will be coming up in five thoughts on the final week well that that last series against the Cubs actually could play a factor in whether the White Sox win the division or not. I mean, you know, it's it's their division to lose right now, but Twins are only behind by three games. If they win today, it's to the socks have. I thought I'd had all the magic number math done in my head, but socks have seven games left. The Twins have five With socks to have the two games in hand. But that could play a factor. And that's a big difference. Because you're talking about a team that could either be the number one seed or the number four seed then so then you lose that home field advantage. When you move on in the playoffs, there's still pretty much guaranteed home field advantage in the first round. I'm not willing to consider them not winning the division. It's and it's not something that I'm just even willing to do At this point, you take three out of four from Minnesota. I just feel like it's over, even though I think they went to. Yes, logically, it's not over night. Tonight's a big game could use a little help on the North Side and Cubs gotten some help. On Friday night, Kyle Hendricks pitched great. One. Nothing win. Not so much last night and then the other way. Okay. If Minnesota loses today, the magic numbers down to three and you've got any three wins and or three Minnesota losses with seven games left to two wins in Cleveland, and we're done. I mean, come on.

That's a lot. That's a lot of ifs. That's a lot of what ifs and do the other thing about Tim Anderson, Rick Renteria set in the post game comments today, he said Tim wanted to stay out there. I mean, so it wasn't like, Oh, my gosh, my leg. I got to get out. So I mean, but just the severity of the game and everything. Yeah, I mean, it was just It's time about him. Anderson, you get up. There's a lot more risk keeping him into the game than pulling him. Yeah, and okay, it's different than what I initially had perceived by some earlier comments of Got it. Okay, Tom, you weren't watching the game, then, right? Because Tim was definitely Yeah, he his body language, his comments. All of it was that he wanted to stay.

You must have really enjoyed this game today, Mike. Thank you, brother Appreciate you. Okay? Yes. Thanks, Pru. So He's actually making a slightly interesting Proposal. So are we asking the same question? You just asked him, Are you you want Matt Foster starting a playoff game. I'm not necessarily saying that you want the opener, don't you? But maybe maybe you would consider in Game three of the playoffs, which would be the deciding game in the wild card round. Do you wantto? I think they'll go with Dane Dunning. But okay, So now we're rolling with the guy who came up here and, well, how many starts we've had nausea. Five now. Dunning. Yeah. Around. Yes, I believe 56 is the one coming up, So okay, So you're rolling with a guy who really didn't expect to be here coming off. Tommy John. I mean, Hey, go out there and win Game three of the play offs. Or maybe you do make it a Let's do an opener out of the bullpen and see how it rolls from there. I wouldn't completely rule out that they're at least having that discussion. I don't oppose. I don't oppose the opener. I like the opener. I just don't know if you do it in Game three. It's even more in it's going to be. It's going to be interesting to see what Dane Dunning does for the rest of this year, but Okay, say they advance into the second round. You've got a five game. Siri's. You're just out of starters, whether you don't have confidence in him, or you really don't have an arm to throw. If you want to use an opener like Matt Foster, I'm not going to dispute that. But you got to back him up with a guy like Geo Gonzalez or a guy like maybe Reynaldo Lopez would do well in that situation coming into the game in the third inning, where a little bit of the pressure is off to get off to a good start and again. Openers air sexy because it's okay. We got this great bullpen arm that'll just throw two shutout innings like he always does in the 6th and 7th inning. I mean, that's a whole different ball ball game for that guy to so that part a has to go well, in order for part B to go well and the rest of the elf that to spell out the whole game. But, yes, I'm not opposed to an opener. I just don't see the White Sox doing something like that. And I don't want to use the word desperate, but until they have to get creative with maybe the second or third round of the playoffs, Okay, and If they do get to Game three, though, and it's all on the line. You might you might see a White Sox team getting creative. But if I had to bet my life on it, I'd say the Dame Dunning is going start Game three, and that will be how it goes. But it is interesting just to think about You know what the white socks are going to do here? Because they are in the playoffs, And that is sweet for 40 for having a beer coming up at five.

Doing pretty well. Are you doing today? Right? Right. I'm all right. I I saw A little tweet by you. Jo brand about the The corona virus tests that they took with the ST Louis Cardinals. And you were very specific about the addition of the word s at the end of the word test. So the tests, meaning that there were potentially multiple players that tested positive for the Corona virus. This is This is tough stuff with EA sports, trying to figure this all out. Yeah, well, basically when they decided to resume the baseball season, the whole idea was If someone came down with the virus, we could still figure things out. We can quarantine self isolate that person and move forward with the season. Miami Marlins proved that not to be the case last week and then when this news came out about the Cardinals yesterday, at first, it was one positive tests and then yeah, John Hammons next Tweet said tests so That means the virus spread within whether it was the clubhouse, the locker room just a team meeting on the field, So that's why they're kind of walking on a very walking on thin ice right now, although this is anybody or any of the other sports leagues, having second thoughts about reopening, even though they're trying to do the bubble thing pretty much know, because right before the teams went to Edmonton or Toronto and hockey, there were zero positive tests throughout anyone in the NHL. Was there an ice? Is that is that Ah, scientific like ice? I think that we can come to that conclusion. I'm not. Ah, I can't say the word. What is the word when you're a barrage of morality of novel ologists, But I mean, if you put the thing on ice, I think it's fine. Which I think what we should do. What? What we could do is good morning. By the way, you were answering phones. I said Good morning. These guys I didn't say good morning to you, but I think that if we you know like it, you should put more ice in your Manhattans. And it's a way to help keep the virus away. So that the colder the better. So you're claiming right now? The cure to the virus. Manhattan's on ice. Hey, we gotta be careful. You'd be careful. You know someone is going to hear about go. Yeah, He's right. We should do. I was thinking every every other day. We see some whack a do on Twitter. Whatever saying I've got the cure or whatever.

Well, they you know people's court, right? Oh, yeah, I know that. Okay. Well, the original people's court had a guy named Judge Wapner. The old crusty guy who became a huge hit just like Judge Judy did. He became a huge celebrity that he was the first guy and Rusty was this old, gray haired guy that would he was in his outfit. And he would he would introduce the next people and he would stand next to Judge Walker's bench. All right, And he became like this kind of because you like they tried to make it look was a courtroom, So they had a bailiff there. Yeah, but Rusty basically just sat there and laughed, but he became kind of a You know, like a little cult figure because he was rusty, and he really didn't do anything. But he looked official, which is basically what I've been accused of doing not really doing anything but looking official Before we get to Jo Brand sports guy here at W. G. N because I want to talk a little bit about not only the reopening of sports, which is is supposedly happening. But what I really want to talk about is I don't believe that a pitch will be thrown. I don't believe a puck will be dropped. I don't think a ball will be dribbled. And I do not think of the other football will be snapped. So how you like that, But first Almost we got to do this. If it's a gym, Toronto show it has to have a little spritz of cashmere Woods. My favorite. My favorite scent, especially in these McGee days. No. They do a nice job of cleaning the the facilities and clean the studios. But You know, Even if you're outside for five minutes, you're going to start sweating. So it does get a little gamey in here, so I always tried. Give a little spritz. For those of you wonder what Kashmir would smells like It is my official scent has been now for about 45 years. It's got a little hint of Lily of the Valley. Some jasmine, some sandalwood, amber. Musk. And just a touch of Mila Bean to really kick it over the top. You gotta love that vanilla bean so If you're in the market for a new scent around your home Glades. Cashmere woods. I get no Plugs or anything from that. It's just I want to spastic ce onto you. I love this smell. I love that sent and I hope you will, too. Cashmere woods by Glade, and now we go to Jo Brand W g N radio, sports guy. Hello, Joe. How you doing, man? Help me, Jim. It's ironic, because the last time we're on the air together, we're with being talking about the beginning of this whole corn. That's exactly correct. And you know, I I've worked a few times with you on and off. But even in that, in this small segment that we were on I enjoyed our time together. And so when I was looking for a sports guy to talk about this, I said Cheesy, Um Jo and I had a pretty nice chemistry. So let's explore that a little more. So I'm glad that you remember that, But yeah, we were going to be doing the stair climb show. Right from the presidential towers on March 8th, and that was even before the lock down started, But they have decided to cancel that event. And so we did the show from the studio, But yeah, we at that point, we had no clue that we'd be still talking about this in July. And we were just talking at that time. How Terrible. It was for the people bowling because about how filthy inside the bowling ball. Exactly. That was the worst of our that was like the worst thing that could happen was the bowling ball. How could people bullet? A sign like that? And now we'll hear is not what I wanted to do here. I wanted to talk to a real sports guy, a passionate sports guy. Because I love sports, and but I I'm not trying to be a killjoy here. But I am baffles. And how we are reopening. Every major sport now has a ah a reopening plan in place that they're beginning to execute. And yet I see these numbers in hot spots, especially baseball, where there are major teams in Florida and in Texas and in California and in Arizona, and I don't understand. How you shut down your season on March 12th because one player in the N B a tested positive, and now you've got almost 40 players and staff. Testing positive and you're going to have a season. I don't understand that. I think you're totally fair from where you are coming at, and I don't think you're being a killjoy. Um, I think you're being a realist. The differences, though, when Rudy go bare tested positive. One. We hardly knew about this disease and what to do about precautions and all that kind of stuff. But the other thing, Wass he did the sarcastic Oh, let me touch every recorder right before the quest conference room, which totally made him look terrible. He totally. You know it took over and took blame for that and tail between his legs and walked back and ended the proper response. The difference I think we have here. The plan's basically for all sports. I know the NFL hasn't gotten into it too much. But the plan for the N L p. The NHL and the EPA is we will not have bands. And that's where a lot of the constant gathering is..
