You're working at am one thousand. We with the radio home for the Chicago Bulls, so you had the lineup of Brand Myers Steve Dog. Gerry and me and you and And the Chicago Bulls you know. It was think of how close we were Phil. Jackson would call brand mayor the morning. You know or you'd have Johnny Red, Kerr. He was like a dad to me. and you watch Michael Jordan grow up, and then I started to impersonate Bill Cartwright then. The SUPPO- used to listen Scottie Pippen and Jordan and those guys would listen 'cause i. you know talk like though correct. What I saw, don't talk. The Last Day at? The Gym, shorts. restricted.

Answering, they say was that stuff that that was real like when that happened that that was real I was like. Some of it was some of it was theater of the mind when we would all just kind of be on the same page and and on the same joke. But it was great it was there was nothing like radio back then in the nineties. Yeah it. The Best Surely Cog oh. Yeah you had mentioned. This is before you met your husband I'm you know I'm I'm a young guy married and we have traveled. He's little. Teague is just born and we would all. We're doing the morning. Show peg and we would be out. Until late you've come in. You're still drunk and you're slap happy. And those with some of the fun, the best times because we were so slap happy from being tired and it was just a nonstop. Party it was crazy. I did seal TV I would do the ten o'clock news. Meet my friends out on Rush Street afterwards so midnight I'd be on rush. Street and then I had to be back in studio with you had five am. I I would ride. My bike to work does good. Oh on riding a bike drunk with some. Some Bruno Mornings. Like peg I. Mean here. You Know I. Mean Your Your Legacy and sports and this year. It's all been unplugged. Do. You think we'll have I don't even know why baseball's even going to start. Why not just start it up next year? Basketball football's got a chance, could you do you think was the any sports? Yeah, I do I think by the end of the summer we will baseball. We believe there's an agreement in place. So by the end of July. They should be starting a sixty game season. Will be easier for them to play all their games at wide world of sports, the ESPN complex and. ORLANDO. Hockey hockey. Worry about because that's one of those sports that could least afford to lose any momentum of fans in a season, so they can't. They can't play I just think that it might be interesting with such a short season for hockey. It may end up being the best thing for them because everybody will be watching everything once it starts because everyone will have missed so much sports that might almost be like an NC double A. Tournament with hockey that everyone just gets into it because it's like a round robin one big tournament. A. Football will be interesting to see what happens in the fall right now, so many guys in training camps. The college training camps are are getting sick again or testing positive, so I'm just not sure how you can actually play. You can't play football social distancing. I'm not an idiot, but you first of all. It's one of the sports in which you're. You're dripping with sweat. You spit into the guy across the line from you into his. Is You know? You're you're on these piles these after a tackle? Exchanging you know you have a lot of your. Your body fluids our I. Just don't know with football how safe it's going to be! But I'm I'm interested to see it to be honest with you. I'm interested to see each of the sports because as fun as it's been to hang with your family and to kind of get back to maybe slowing down a bit i. I'm back to wanting to cheer for something and root for something so yeah I think we're going to see sports, but you never until the end of the summer I think. So, how will the Chicago bears do? Wish you say forget the virus. You know there's the schedule. How are they? GonNa! Do I well since I'm more of a fan now I like the team that they are building I like the competition that they have brought in at quarterback with Nick foles. If that will spark Mitch Trubisky The defense is. Happen! Never No, No you said Park and I just think of an old model t and Spark Plug No. You never know listen. It's the defense. The Defense Cook Kerry this team of the often just be right. You know passable. Now go now, go across the lake. How do you think they'd Detroit? Lions will do I don't care. Let's go! Let's go up to Wisconsin. How do you? How do you think? A Green Bay will do I. Personally think mentally. It's a train wreck up there. Yeah their after their draft issue in Green Bay. They're like. Oh boy. There's GonNa be some I. Wait to see that. Again now. CODA. I take his always been overrated. I. Really Do they've they've had a couple of good years with good opportunities, but just haven't been able to you know to. Go to Vegas in the raiders I still think that could be the most expensive ongoing joke. What do you think? Totally agree link. All my Gosh I wish I was I wish I was covering a team in Vegas because imagine the stories. Oh, my gosh, the outside of the Games and practices there would be nonstop non-stop stories.

I wrote about how I was so afraid to golf in Chicago when I came home to Chicago. Because I, thought, everyone is a good Golfer, but I knew I should do some of these outings, because it was the best way to get my name out there and to meet listeners and me in television viewers as I would play the Kevin Matthews Golf outings which if anyone was not a golfer? That was the outing to go to, and it was that outing where Maggie. who wasn't someone through his shoes up on the roof of the clubhouse and Maggie went up there. To get them. And then they took the latter away while he was up there, and he's all Keith Magnuson for those of you. Not from Chicago former Blackhawk and Maggie was very bowlegged and he goes up. The ladder gets his his shoes turns around in the latter's gone, and he's stuck on top of the rough I thought Oh my goodness. This is a riot. This is golf. Cared about off. We had an outing ten golf out his. We got it got alternate. Golf Outing and courses and. Unreal 'cause Chellios would always come former Blackhawk would always come to your your golf outings.

When I first came to Chicago, he came up like the first week when we just hit it off, Darren Pang look at Darren Pang. Who is the goalie for the Blackhawks? WHO's gone on to just be the voice of Hockey? And you know at that time as well as the. Bears had just won. The super. Bowl, so we just got comfortable with the entire bears organization, including that and the coaches, and then that young kid from North Carolina Michael Jordan. You know he was yeah. I remember. we saw the best, and then you saw the replacement, the people the earlier come in and and the new blackhawks in the white sox. The cubs. I always I I grew up in Michigan, so I was always a tiger fan, because Ernie Harwell who would call the Tiger Games, and it was just the American league, so it was.

Play. Just gamble it, and you just went there to get drunk right right? It wasn't about baseball at all in play mound ball. Played Mom ball and got drunk at Wrigley and then left right after the seventh inning and just went to more bars, so it was. Chicago at that time culturally when the loop is underway, culturally I talk about this to this day.

You really is you think about it it so my goodness. I remember you trying to have the baby. Get pregnant. Yes, you have the baby, and now here we are and wow, let wait I remember before I met my husband. I remember when I met Him we you and I were working on the radio Not The loop. We were at one of the one of the many stations in Chicago. You could hear Kevin Matt. Do Show and. I remember when I met my husband, Jason at Medina Country Club. I was golfing as a guest of Jane Makita and. I ran into him, met him at the club, and I remember coming back and telling you. Oh, I'm going to marry that guy. Yeah Yeah and you had you had a psychic on the show, which I still don't quite understand how it works how you can have a psychic over the radio and they can actually read you. But this psychic told asked me if he was a twin, and I said No. He's not a twin and I was like all right I. Don't believe this guy. And he said No. No, no I see twins, I see twins Lo and behold he and I have twins. It's crazy, and then to all my in-vitro I would leave. You would let me leave the show. We did a morning show. I would go to northwestern. Memorial Hospital in Chicago. Go get my shots Go get checked out. Go get the plunger. Put in me. And then I'd come back and finish the show and I. Mean it's it's crazy. You know what we were breaking ground I. Know that sounds so trite today, but nobody was doing this, nobody was talking about that. You know you really brought issues I mean. Think of how many people that has to happen in order to have a family, and and you educated everybody. I'm the whole process i. now it was crazy. It was a little. You know kind of bearing everything at that time. You Know Kevin that's one of the things about the show. It was so perfect because the chemistry with everybody was great. You know the doc God rest. His soul was so fabulous on the show. The producer Jelly had the perfect attitude. Pugsley was just funny as all get up. I mean there were just. Jim I got about. We yeah, if we go if we go all the way back, thinking you, said Doc, you know and and today the world is talking about race and whatnot dock, and I were talking about Race Relations Yep. I mean decades ago it decades ago. It reminds me Steve and his producer. Marcus or if you remember. Our radio show, we were the. First, to ever have a float in the gay pride, parade and we had Dan the gay American. We've had Danny into Rome. You're trying to have a baby I was just what we were doing was talking about what was really happening in Chicago, and throughout the Midwest and and it really broke ground in today to this day. I still have that attitude you know I might. Be a lot older, but I'm. Still thinking outside the box is they say you are too, and you know what? I never really thought of it that way with doc that you and him would would have some really funny bits, and really what they were were eye opening exchanges as to. Stereotypes that we're going on. That still go still goes on right now. I can't believe you guys got away with some of the things that you did that was twenty years ago. Well one of the things that I'll never forget is I sent dock and Jerome. To a very wealthy neighborhood, and they were just walking down the street with television set. It was river were. And and and. And the cops came within ten minutes, and that was actually we did that on Martin. Luther King's birthday to see you know how far we had come and those moments. I love the show, but more importantly I love the audience because they were in on it, too. As far as you know, we did everything together with the audience. We knew who our audience was invited to come over to their pool or barbecue. We went over and we barbecue. We did we did. We grew up together and that's you know. The greatest moments of my life were growing up in. CHICAGO, you said You met your husband.

"That's one of the things we talked about at bigger pockets is analyzed deals and look at these properties, and you're not ready to invest yet, but you can still learn about the thing about the the niche that you're looking for. Did when when I started I didn't so I got some friends Qiuping about it at least are invested Pedia is you can invite people to do with you, so we kind of have competition so for entire years like my sophomore junior year me and my two friends did it started out with a simulation of one hundred thousand dollars, who made the most money after the year one, so we have to really understand how the market work and how my best friend was up, he was bragging bursary minds in the end. His portfolio just ain't. Got The. Oh, just because you start ahead doesn't mean you're gonNA end that way. All for year I got to say and understand how the market work before putting my actual money to it, and that was an experience that was extremely valuable. I'M GONNA. Make my kids to this. This is something really interesting that you can use to teach your kids. Maybe older kids may be like teenagers and in high school event. Just Hey, this is what you can do. This is how you can make money. This is how you can grow your wealth and prepare for retirement like I said. My daughter wants to retire from school. She's Ted so I know you can't retire from school. You have to graduate from high school, but look at what you can do with the money that you have instead of buying candy and yarn. You can buy stocks. You can invest in stocks using these little fractional shares, so Oh, these all build together. Yeah, that's I. think that's fun I. think that's Great. We're GONNA. Will include a link to that in the show notes as well the investor thing as well. Okay what's the third way to start investing? Yes, the third one is something I've kind of come on over the last eighteen months. So this is called fund hacking so a lot of us obviously like I'm big on index, but there are other mutual funds that are out there. The cool thing is for ninety nine percent of of mutual size. They will give you the holidays so they will tell you exactly what this find is investing in..

If you're new, is that you buy a stop one time, and then you wake up two weeks later now you're rich, which is not really the case, rabbi, my stock, which is right after two thousand eight bought city because my finance professor said look, you know, city is now going to go bankrupt wherever you should buy our cheat saw body away to three months at made like two dollars and I was like. This. was like a three hundred dollar investment, and what is this? This is lame. How? Well the truth is like five or six years later that investment nearly triple, so I could have had a thousand dollars by sitting there and waiting, however, if I kept putting in three hundred dollars a month year, I would have been tremendously better. So the key is be consistent and be patient. Not every stock is going to double overnight. The other thing is is getting ideas for how the stock has done in the past sometimes people. Just you know Oh my God. My friend made forty percent last night. Not really knowing that it was just a blip or mistake or just something random happened when you can figure out whether it's American. Airlines has been daleks sixty percent ten years. That will give you an idea like hey. Maybe this is not the place I want to put my money because I know that this stock hasn't been good. Since the last recession. Those. Highly consistent millionaires. You mentioned earlier. How often do you think they're checking their their portfolio balances? Usually studies say four times. A year is as much as you should do. You should do more than that. You're starting to check weekly monthly making those changes I'm you tend to make more mistakes? A lot of billionaires that I've had the privilege of meeting. They would tend to do four times a year. Definitely semi annually. That was like. Hey, look, it's been six months. We need to come. Come in and sit down and and make some changes. Those are the only time they may changes, but they were consistent in adding money every month, so they will give me because look I'm making the deposit. Make sure goes into the investment that they already had moved very rarely I get someone to hey. Look I need to sell everything because things weren't where they wanted them to be. You know one question hypothesis. That's kind of. Framing refer me right now is is this idea that these people managing cash very tight? You know it is maybe. A lack of patience tied to a low savings rate, or or living right around what you're. What you're making. Comes in so, are you noticing now with new investors at all?.

"I think the field really matters there when I was in finance. No one really care I think it was something that they expected it. After a while, you can switch. I've been in some interviews and say hey, look, you haven't been in the job more than three years. We just true am I know. You. Do, you want three two and a half, three years of very good performance, or do you want somebody average An interview. That's kind of how I felt so yeah. Sometimes it's hindered me at the time it has. Yeah, and you just have to find somebody that it doesn't hinder you. Okay you posted a video on instagram the other day that I thought was brilliant. The title was every investor needs this one thing which you don't sell in until you listen to the video, but I'm going to bring it up. You said if you don't have patience, you're not going to cut it as an investor period and that is. kind of true all across the board. We have a rather volatile stock market right now I. Don't know if you saw I actually didn't even look up the numbers and we're recording this a couple of weeks in advance so I'm not sure that it. It really made I certainly can't say what's going to happen in two weeks, but we've had some really crazy, sharp up and sharp down in the last few weeks. So if you don't have patience, you're not gonNA cut it as an investor. That is a smart advice. We had an interview back on episode one hundred and Nineteen. It aired on April sixth right when the stock market. Market you know, the whole corona virus was just coming out in the market was down and then down more down more, the mad scientist said in that interview that he thought he was prepared for risk, but when the bottom dropped out, and so many of his gains were wiped out in one day. He's like you know what I realize. I'm I'm not so excited about all this risk..

"Those are a lot of the three archetypes boost people that were super consistent state at one job for a while had one or two, and had like a side hustle outside. That really resonate for me and what we're. What were some of the characteristics of those super consistent people? What? What did they do really well in your opinion? In addition to the obvious of being consistent. Other than being consistent. Seemed really low key like you couldn't really like. Just look and say oh. This person has money. You can never actually tell. Those who look like were normally doctors, but again the people resonate with me like. A firefighter for like twenty years others. Teacher or professor? They were like really low key. You couldn't really just you know. Just pick them out and then usually like. Every very chill so like you get quiet as like Oh my God I need to sell everything today any by coming here and like make noise and like the dispersal of on. Them which is always great for me as well. So that's very interesting, it sounds like this little book called the millionaire next door where Thomas Stanley said the number one car that the millionaire next door drives is not a Mercedes or a BMW. It's a Ford F one fifty pickup truck. Which I would recommend, because then all your friends are going to ask you to help the move bright. I think maybe I haven't read the updated version, but I would think something like a Honda Accord Honda Civic. Being. The other thing that I noticed too so yeah, the Honda accord the Toyotas, but like it was anytime that they had an older car like ten years. That was very well taken care of. You could always tell by. How will they took care of card? And that just like the outside stuff, maintenance and everything because they would come in as a yeah, you know. I've had this car since two thousand five. I make sure they in their budget in their catchy. They would tell you how well it took care of the car. How many miles they had on it and it was always pristine from my. Perspective, and that's something I've always noticed. Choose Zach whether his grandma. GRANDPA middle-aged guy like their cars were well taken care of 'em assuming this because they care about the value and not having to go out and get a new purchase inconsistent spin on that. Your when you take care of modern car, it will last you a really long time. And we know what Scott we should talk to somebody about proper. Maintenance. I grew up. My Dad worked on cars. He was in the military, and he worked that he was in the auto pool or whatever it's called so I always watched my dad work on cars and he drilled into my head. You Change Your oil every three thousand miles, and now it's like different. The cars will tell you, but you don't know what you don't know so if you don't take care of your car, you're going to have problems. I think my sister in law went something like twenty thousand miles without changing her oil and it was like tar. Yeah, yeah, it was. Doesn't have that car anymore..

She doesn't know anything. She keeps caving and it was nice to hear that she's not one hundred percent successful either well. The theme was a line. What your kid wants with what you want right? And whether it was necessary, completely intentional or just a matter of getting you to stop asking for money for video games. Your parents were able to do. With this system, so. Yeah, so we're you also saving your lunch money? Yeah I would save money to like five dollars a day I would say well look I can just been three dollars and be fine and we used to have like. Chicken strips basket with fries like three dollars. And you get a drink or whatever else I was like well. I need all of that. I can just get these chicken strips and be fine for the day. Okay. So how did this translate into you becoming a financial planner? Yeah so for me. It started to become fun just to like. To figure out like how much money I could have if I did these specific actions in. If I can arrive on schedule if he would so naturally, that starts to become retirement planning it starts to become buying stocks starts become more sophisticated and say cash flow planning, so those were the things. I started to become a lot more interested in because it, wasn't it?

"A weekend in one thousand the loop in abcd in cbs radio in the fall of two thousand and eight while on air he was partially paralyzed by multiple sclerosis his struggle to overcome a debilitating disease in a chance encounter with a statue at u of the virgin mary found next to a dumpster changed his life forever kevin welcome to the crosswalk thank you so much i appreciate it yeah so maybe maybe just give the listeners a little bit of a background that aren't familiar with your career in in secular radio and in kind of what you were up two and a in the chicago area well i would imagine the majority of folks listening go right now i don't know and i say to them you have good guardian angels and that's why up and now and now i i i've been blessed i i absolutely love radio i started a in college at lewis gonna be a comma teacher and eventually i got to chicago and 'em i hooked up with some of the most creative people in industry jonathan brand meyer steve doll gary meyer alary where jimmy decastro a these folks were giants instill are and we revolutionize the way you listened to radio and we were mimicked and we were one of a kind it was it was unique it was i was it was just an outstanding opportunity i really blessed i have such a career in radio so you're radio station now you're show was a talk talk radio music radio dj guy would know it was it we did whatever we want we did it ever we did the opposite of what other radio stations in the country were doing doing x dot com so unique we did what we wanna do if i play the song it was a song i wanna play or with an artist new artist coming up maybe it was a you know a r e m i hey folks they these guys from athens georgia georgia athens georgia here's r e m or you to you know it was just i played whatever i wanted to take a break but at the same time the content was the pulse of what was happening at that time in the late eighties in the mid nineties culturally it was just it was the perfect storm in all hit at once so at this point is they say i mean you're you're living a good life i mean you're kind of in the chicago area at least a you know a little bit of a rock stars you know as far as the the secular world is is concerned in in living large what would you what would their faith life during that time i had always you know people say kept when did you become a jesus freak and i tell them when i was about six years old because i grew up outside detroit and the my house inside was as violent as a the neighborhood i lipton i mean at that time i'm six years old i'm witnessing resident kennedy he shot in front of me is a little kid or race riots or vietnam it was in i i was such a little person and i was just hurting my catholic faith i'd go to church i heard about this guy named god in i cry in my bed because there was so much violence in my house i just wanna gotta take me oven and so that is where start at the age of six and and i say that you know god had me by the hand that always in i'm the one call an i don't apologize for what i've done 'em it's been it's been a it's been a beautiful journey really really has and a i've always known the power of radio when i open up a microphone yeah i could have a lot of fun and we were rock stars we owned the city of chicago but at the same time i could say hey you know what i know this non it and she and other nuns are taking care of babies that are addicted to cocaine they need diapers an i would say i don't want you to just drop off a box i want pallets of diapers and those with the kind of events that i did ed in through out this rock and roll world that you know this this it was it was it was unique it was really unique i took that opportunity to use the microphone when i needed to to help others and i still do to this day yeah i think that's great that's a that's probably a great lesson for most people you know i i heard a father john ricardo talk about you know the difference between a vocation and occupation in some people say well you know i'm just a car salesman and he said but if if that's what god is called you do in your life there is a way that you could news that occupation is part of your vocation to minister to people in in in the bring them to christ and i mean in so even you know if announced they were all those you guys rock stars all these popular doing this but there is a there's an awesome responsibility that goes with that that if god has blessed you with that to do something with it for the benefit of the kingdom in in in doing god's will that not all of us are just called there'll be a you know a monk and you know and find some monastery someone just pray all day well you also have to listen you know i i've been in the last eight years of my life has changed

salesman or you know maybe i'm jewish supposed to be a monk or whatever it's amazing i i i've gotten the most out of what i've been doing when i go inside prisons an i'm talking to men who are sentenced in in will die in prison an i ask them questions and i say who wants to go to heaven and they haven't been asked that question in a long time or maybe never end to heaven inmates say i'm

which not that long ago less in a month ago andy's lifers i said my prayer is that we all go to heaven together and then i reminded these inmates that judas yeah forsaken jesus with gold silver yet his biggest sinuous judas didn't think jesus would forgive him and so he hangs himself an is is long as were alive on earth everyone listening right now it takes three brass three words god forgive me and we are we could all be disciples i beacon do you wanna go and having i do i really do and i i asked that asset all you listeners you don't in order to go to heaven you have to become a saints fan

changed her life and then how that led you to find this broken mary a statue in what that's done in you're in you're like well i you know there's no such thing as a coincidence you know two thousand eight it was a they thought it was brain rain cancer and it was a rare form of a mess and how young radio is changing so much i mean it's imploded i lost my job i got a mess i'm driving on saturday

It's just it's become important to so many people because we're all broken and years ago. I I went to get my wife some flowers, and I found a statue lying next to a dumpster. And it was a statue of the Virgin Mary and the story is how I took her. And since I've taken her miracles that have literally evolved around the world. With the statue of broken Mary represents were all broken. And people can relate to that. And I'm honored to be able to take the book. And it's got a message and people can relate to it.

But this book again, you know, we've talked about this over the last couple of years. It's a great story. Because I mean, if you're a big fan of of of your you, which I am radio itself in the days of the loop. I mean, there are some great great stories in there. But there's a thread in every story that says, you know, there's everyone's got their issues. Like, if if you think that life is perfect and you've got nothing going on with yourself. You're lying to yourself. Everybody's got their stuff, right? And you bring that to light and for someone that we've all known and grown up with and had some issues come up with with your diagnosed with MS about ten years ago twelve years ago, it was just now eleven years ago. Yeah. Exactly. And it was a tough time. It was a tough time. Just just kind of suck in that in and trying to figure things out and you saw kind of a light at the end of that tunnel. And you know, there's a lot of people who who are suffering a little bit that they they're looking for that light. And I think that's why they can relate to the book and the statue of broken Mary.

You've been kinda tests in the waters on that. You're not doing the doll podcast anymore. But you're you're you're starting to kind of experiment doing some Facebook live, and I just loved that. I saw you doing that stopped me in my tracks. I I really I know folks get on the radio or they'll go over WGN TV. And and I it may say how much they love Chicago, Chicago. I can't even come to the right words. It's I absolutely adore embrace Chicago, the people I miss it incredibly. I miss it so much because I absolutely love the city of Chicago. And when you first got here, I just want to talk about this one story when you first got here, I'd asked you this before like, when did you know like you made it because I mean, you were on you weren't a powerhouse station. Sandwich between Stephen Gary and Jonathan brand Meyer. And here you are now in in the third largest market in in radio in the world. And here you are. And what was that moment for you? Like, you said actually I walked out we were in the handcock building. So I walked out on Michigan avenue when I started going walking north. Yeah. I turned left and started heading west. And then I got lost. And I didn't know how to get back. Thank goodness. I can look up and finite. Handcock put the city was just, ma'am. And I'm like, oh, my what a great city. Yeah. Absolutely. And my other favorite story, which I need you to share was you were so close, and you think about the time that you were on the air in the very beginning. It was the time about the eighty five bears and Kevin Butler, and all these guys and and. There was one time. I think they tied you in a chair and beat the crap out of you. I'm Tom Sayer Steve McMichael, Kevin Butler. They all came up into the handcock on the thirty seven floor. They duct tape me to my chair. Mcmichael's wipe put makeup and lipstick all over me. And in McMichael were just wailing on me. And then they cut Steve's got a knife. He cuts my shirt off. We'll me down on Michigan avenue, and they just leave me there. Between that and what we used to hang with like to see Michael Jordan for the first time in that, slam dunk, or krislindahl ios was Blackhawks it was just that culture at that time. I mean Oprah was coming alive. Second city Bill Murray, Chris Farley. I what an just a volcano over the city. It was absolutely. Hey, I gotta ask you Jimmy there. Yes. I'm here. Go jimmy. Hey here. I gotta ask you a question. So how's the casino because it's it's Friday night. So be busy. Island Bieber island in the middle of Lake Michigan. I own a casino on an Indian reservation. He's doing real. Well, it's hard to get to these days. Yeah. You know, there's crappy weather, but it's gonna spa pretty soon. We're gonna have a big grand reopening. Well, let me ask you this because I was looking at a map because I really didn't know where beaver Ireland was you can only get there by like a helicopter or a boat. So here's my question for you. What kind of idiot would put a casino in the middle of the lake like that. Ian, why because there's a lot of natives and just a lot of people that you stay on the island want to the all goal. But it's a big vacation thing works selling pot heard that first day. Yeah. What do you do with the kids because I know you can bring your kids? In the car, but. Bottles on and stuff. Like that. You leave the kids out McCaw check Anonima every eight hours by we'd M eighties. A little bit buffet. It's a good time at a buffet. I'm of honor because you're going to get the munchies I'm gonna assuming after that. So what what was beaver island named after like what what's the story behind beaver island law. Believe it or not it's I'm not going there. That pulls back. I could have given your whole story. In my book. Oh, come on out. Then you'll wanna read about it says it was a Mormon kingdom with polygamous living all over the island. Well again. You don't wanna get into it on the radio? Dave. Okay. Are you still keeping your hand in in the sports world? Jimmy. I wanna do sports when a bear start playing again. And they were robbed by the way, they were totally robbed all this change that whole thing. I'm so glad the bears got rid of that kick or a piece of granite with you absolutely says it says it has. Yeah. Absolutely. Assume that like Jean grecko or one of these guys is going to retire soon as Eddie. He is I trust me people over at the ABC have over ABC, right? Yeah. He's over ABC. They keep calling saying would you come over to blow him out of there? Quick. But you know, I Gotcha. I gotcha. The new year show is killing him. Well, you know, he gets to make out with a lovely lady. So I think that's just fine. Judge whether the wind is over because if Davies and Jane Greco case, it means as twelve more weeks of winter. That's nice Jimmy. You're an idiot. Thank you. All right, Kev. I gotta tell you. I love you, buddy. Thank you, folks..
