"In this in the media, and that visits have been made to some of those cities business have been made to the John Fisher, the owner, the eighth. Uh, he's uh, who knows how many times he's been here? I think he's come here a few times it's likely That we don't even know about looking for a location. Does he have the money to build the stadium himself? It's probably worth about $2 Billion Stadium is going to cost of billions. I don't think so. You're not gonna want to Leverage of money like that, probably, but but with some help from baseball and others could they do it? Yes, it's looking more and more viable all the time. And I sort of you know, uh, there's a part of me that cringes at saying that because I think it's crazy. There's another part of me that says, Well, two years ago, I would have thought the Raiders was crazy. Yeah, that's true. And I feel the same way, Ron. I mean, if you had told me that this was going to happen as soon as he did with the Raiders, I agree with you so so So let me get your gut instinct on this, though. Give me your gut instinct. What? The league? Yeah. Go ahead the A's one Vegas the league once Vegas because they've seen what's happened to the NHL and the NFL, and both of those least Which are strong. We're talking about strong leagues to begin with, but they became stronger and their teams became more valuable when they added Vegas to their roster. So baseball is looking at that and saying, Let's do the same and they're going to try to. They're going to try and try to find any way they can to make it happen in Vegas. And I think if you have that sort of commitment, you make it happen, And I think that that once at the A's wanted to make it happen. I completely agree. And I think that they're adding the Las Vegas Raiders to the NFL is in addition, but Adding the the Las Vegas Golden Knights to the NHL has made the NHL a more viable brand. And more people are paying attention to hockey now than they were five years ago because of the Golden Knights, and I think that that's the prime example. Where do you believe is the best location for the stadium to sit? Is it I mean, if it's at the M You're not going to get her next to the M. You're not going to get the major tourism. You're going to get some locals, probably some Henderson locations, maybe some some of the locals. I think you'll get quite a few. If it's you know, in the Las Vegas fairgrounds. If it replaces the Rio. Do you think it has to be within a mile or so from the Las Vegas Strip run? No, it does not. But go further south on the Strip. There's plenty of There's plenty of land between Let's say Mandalay Bay and the M. Out there in this trip. There's a couple of spots that are large enough if they could buy them and get them talking about the spots that are 2 15 and the I 15 around that area. Which would be great access for locals. I think with a okay the Garth Brooks concert over the weekend. I did not go to it. But I've heard some of the I was at the fight that maybe you heard McGregor and 48 5 or something. It was a broker. Heard something about a broken foot. Yes, I just heard about Donald Trump getting a massive round of applause. That's all. He didn't get around. He got a massive round. That's all. I heard it on my YouTube page and just put it out there. It's got quite a response. But between a broken foot and the and the and the other boxes. We talked about tied to the to Labasa with his shui drinking beer out of a shoe, which he did after the fight. From fans, just random pants. A lot of leg talk in that in that fight with a shoe, you know, and the foot broken and stuff. But anyway, that being said Garth Brooks was a disaster, not the concert itself, but from everything I've heard from locals. Is the plans getting in and out of Allegiance Stadium were awful. And there's no for locals. And there's no will real way to fix that, because they only have 2500 spots on site the park So everybody has the park over its strip properties, which was the plan by the way, did we not say this guy's have we not said this from the beginning that that location The plan was to have people park at MGM Properties, pay exorbitant prices for parking there and have to go through the casino and walk on your way to be able to get to a concert or local events. So It's not something and we'll see that with the Raiders, too. It's not made for locals as well as it should have been, especially when you consider locals put in $750 million into the stadium in tax revenue really have the money for it. Okay, Here's what run that Sir Paul needs more locals, So they had to put it at the location where people surround out and park properly agree with everything you said Austin, Vegas. Sorry to energy. I I agree with everything you just said. I want to add something here run. So if the Oakland A's in Oakland were getting 25 30,000 people again. I would say there's no chance they're going to be playing in Las Vegas ballpark right, but but the but the reality is and I think you'll agree with me on this one. They're barely getting 10,000 fans a game in Oakland. So what would they rather do, playing an awful stadium and have a good team? So what would they rather do? Stay in an awful stating it all good, where they barely get 10,000 or being probably arguably the most beautiful triple a ball park in the country. Getting 10,000 there. I say they would rather be in Vegas. Yeah, the latter. It's hard, especially if they have already announced if they broken ground. If they announced they're moving, they're not going to do what the Raiders didn't stay in Oakland for a couple of more years because there were no options here in Vegas for them to play. There is a viable option for it with Las Vegas ballpark. Billy Beane. We did an interview with him two years ago, and the Athletics were here. And he said, This is a better ballpark than we have in Oakland. I would be to come and see it. You know, Billy being Billy Bald guy? Yeah. Money. Moneyball. Moneyball. Moneyball. Absolutely great movie. That's a different Moneyball. Thanks. Yeah. Money ball game. Um And it's uh And so he made it very clear. You know, that was sort of like, Wow..

"Yeah, There was 65,000 people or I saw someone it took Kelly in Vegas actually made a post on Twitter. And, uh, it took her three hours to leave. The parking is not good around allegiance going to get worse. Did she throw out homophobic slurs to all those people that were that happened in 20? Okay, I was just check. She's going. Let's get back to the right. But anyways, Brian My biggest worry would be parking would be would be the congestion down there in the parking in the different locations, the one that makes the most sense to avoid. That would be the one in Henderson. But are tourists going to travel to Henderson or they're going to stay at the are they going to stay next to the M. They're gonna fly into Vegas scene actually, M and then watch the game. I think I think what's going to happen We're going to get. Let's say they play the Angels in a road trip in Las Vegas. Let's say they play the Mariners, the division game of the road trip in Las Vegas. You're going to have Thousands of thousands of fans from like a Seattle or or in Anaheim that will come to Las Vegas for that road trip, and then they'll experience the entire city. As long as we have a retractable roof, so We're talking about the possibility of the Oakland A's not only moving their franchise to Las Vegas, and they've met with officials again now for the third time in the last six weeks, So this is real. If you think it's leverage I want to hear from you. If you think there's no chance they're going to move here. But now taking this, even a step further is now we've heard rumblings of the possibility that while the stadium is being built, they moved the franchise here. Even though they're in a contract, they could get out of it. And they play their games at Las Vegas Ballpark. What are your thoughts on that? Do you welcome it or not? 2575396 Let's go to David. David is next on the Vegas take What's going on, guys. How you doing? What's up David about this? I think this would be really just a home run for Vegas. And at first, you said about playing that ballpark. It seems ridiculous. But you know, they're not drawing anybody over there in Oakland, And I think if I remember right the first year that the aviators played Summerland They were drawn more people for correct. You know You're right. Yeah. Beautiful nude. Yeah, you know 38,000 people so you can imagine a weekend with you know the Yankees or Red Sox or the Angels and the Dodgers coming in here. There won't be an empty seat in that place. Any time to play there. And then even if they get a bigger, you know, as long as they have the dome like JD mentioned like, I think it's a home run and economic impact for having that 152 games. A great writer David, It's a It's a lot of hotel David, May I ask you a lot of tickets sold? David May I ask, Have you been to the Las Vegas ball parka? What do you think of it to go? It's a great place, and obviously it's too small for long term for Major League baseball team, But I mean, if they had to play there for a year, two years, Hey, do you remember the story of when the Utah Jazz had issues in their arena and they had To play some NBA games at the Thomas and Mack Center. So anything's possible David, right, but they they would draw more like I said, You can imagine there won't be an empty. Imagine a Yankees playing there on the weekend or something. There won't be an empty heat over there ever and and and, and that caller that called in and talked about the There's there's massive crime in Chicago. But the baseball typically that the baseball fan is not that type of massive crime in Oakland. I mean, you don't you don't see shootings outside of Wrigley Field. You don't see shootings, despite the fact.

"Good so that there's some some steps. You got to take your sure you're following the protocols that you were told to follow, and you're doing what you're supposed to do according to the mandates and all that stuff, and I can appreciate that. The reason why I ask that Mr Logan and listen, let's be honest about this. These games would be sold out. We know that right? You'd be making a lot more money. This sucks for everybody. I'm with you. You know, It's very frustrating with that being said, and I'm not asking you to talk about us. You're Dana White. But we've been talking about this issue today about how he had some fights last weekend in Florida, where 15,000 people indoors, not outdoors. 15,000 people were allowed indoors. They had to sign a waiver and they weren't required to wear a mask of social distance. I mean, do you have any opinion on that at all? Why they obviously Dana has set a standard and has created something in the UFC. That is unprecedented. It certainly in my Career, so I would never question his approach to things and and I think part of what One of the things that I believe, is it You know, At some point, people are gonna have to be responsible for themselves heated. They should be right now. So if those 15,000 people want to go to an indoor venue and You're willing to sign a waiver. Let him you know that Z kind of Ah, That's something that you know, it's people have to be responsible for themselves in our world today. I don't think enough people are quite frankly concerned that that said, Um yeah, and that's just It's not our job to baby sit people at the same time. That's why you've got have parameters. That's why we have parameters here. Obviously, being outdoors makes it a little bit different, right? You know what? I think it makes it a lot different, Quite frankly. But you know, we chose the more you know, I take a more Conservative approach may have certainly not that aggressive understanding that you know, we'd like to get back to full capacity, so it's possible But you mentioned something early on in the question about the money. You know, that's That's one of the things that we're not going to do. We're not going to put the money ahead of safety. We're not going to put the money at the forefront of what, how we make decisions and what we do because that You start doing that You're gonna you're bound to fail. And I appreciate that, and I'm done. I appreciate you saying that my only concern is on again. I know you don't want to say anything or criticized any what? I totally respect that. I'm just I'm just worried that that was his motivation Because he's having the fights in Florida. He wouldn't have been able to do that in Las Vegas have 15,000 people indoors. But point well taken, sir. Let's talk a little bit about some fun stuff, which is actually the game tonight because we've been talking ad nauseum about Corona virus and mask mandates. This is this is awesome. Don. First of all, I love your ballpark. I've been saying that consistently. It's the best ballpark in minor league baseball. It has a major league feel to it work you're gonna have. Even though it's only 5000 fans. They're gonna have the opportunity to see some live professional baseball tonight. The weather couldn't even be more perfect. Then it will be tonight. Just talk to me about just how excited you are, and the organization is about finally getting a baseball game live action at Las Vegas Ballpark. What I've said to a few people this week. You don't know what you've got until it's gone. So not having it season last year relief we have illuminates how How much fun this is and we and what it means certainly do our staff to the players. Everybody involved that just to get the play to get to come out and and most importantly for the fans, because you said that this place is very special. I got a really good feel to it. It's got You know, we took great pains and went to great expense. Frankly, to make this what I think is certainly is the best ballpark in minor league baseball. It's one of the best ballparks and baseball period. And, uh, you know that That is part of what makes me so excited about getting ready to go again tonight. And, you know, I still have a just a little bit of trepidation because Cove it is like a sniper so, but we've made it This far. The guys have all been tested. Everything's rolling along. So we're in good shape. Are you requiring vaccines for all the players as well? You know, that's the the A's that the players a race employees, they're strongly recommending it, but in terms of requiring it know that, but most of them are vaccinated. And so one question just just about the upcoming team who are a couple a couple of guys that that should be that our listeners should watch that that have a chance of being called to the bigs this year. Uh, now just went. Hey, Just wonder, Miss Garcia get hurt, so That was one probably our top everyday prospect, the catcher. He's in the big leagues right now, but he reads the center fielder. He is athletically. You'll seize 64. He looks like he should be playing wide receiver for the Raiders. I mean, they could use it you can. He's got uses with talented these Young's Learning how to play. You know he's going to be fun for people to watch the guys up the middle of the infield. Cosme ideas are Pete's been big leader for a long time with a lot of different folks. You could watch them taken ground balls and just working out the last few days. You know the way those guys move around. It is special. I'm gonna be excited. Tol watch those guys tonight in action. If you're just joining us, we're speaking with the president and chief operating officer of the Aviators home opener tonight against Sacramento. That game time is around seven. P.m.. Don Logan joining us So don you. You talked about your only allowing 5000 people in. I would imagine the air the game's sold out for those 5000 for the for the coming days or there's still tickets available for tomorrow's game. Saturday's game in Sunday's.

The second, I figured, why not continue? I think that's a good good move for them potentially good fit. But anyway, I didn't know I'm there and I'm doing sports 1983. I hear the story that spoke and I reported the story. They spoke and Indians moving to Las Vegas. And then six months later, I get an offer. I get two offers. I get an offer to go toe Spokane at the CBS station there and Vegas here. The ABC station and, of course, chose Vegas. Even though Spokane at the time was a bigger market. But Vegas was closer to home for me in Southern California. There wasn't any context, like okay, right? I'm going to Vegas and good choice, and I think I think the right choice. I would say so. Looking forward to seeing the hustling rebels played baseball out there next Tuesday at Las Vegas ballpark and just sort of just financing their restricted attendance and you gotta wear a mask. I mean, well. We get through some of that stuff. But it was good to see the game in Texas in Arlington with full full crowd for baseball s o that that we gotta get sports get back and it's a normalcy in the world and be safe, but no question, But sports can bring us back and we can have some fun with this. Just stay out of politics. Will you sport you said most hell out of politics. Well, no question doesn't have to be political all the time. I understand. That's one of Iran and I tell you something, my man we usually run. We always we always.

"You could join us on a Tuesday and just a quick line up schedule for later on this week of course tomorrow we have Michael of an ID who's gonna be joining us big news see release some more documents that show that Nike has paid allegedly middle school basketball players at that young of age talking eleven twelve thirteen year olds it's unbelievable so we'll get to that tomorrow will be interesting and also on the show will be joined by Tony Sanchez you and all the football coach joining us in the third hour so this is a really cool story really a lot of fun Las Vegas ballpark bait that they have only been operating for one full season and they've already been chosen for want to triple A. baseball's biggest stage is next year it's the Pacific coast and International League that made the announcement that Las Vegas ballpark will host the two thousand and twenty triple a national championship game so this is Pat o'connor minor league baseball president commenting on hosting this two thousand twenty championship we're very happy to be a part of what's happening here on a regular basis and we really look forward to coming back September twenty second next year for the national championship game this is really some exciting stuff so joining us on the line right now and by the way I've been to so many aviators games this year can't say enough good things about the ball park about the staff great franchise so much fun such a great area joining us right now on the line is Jim jam a communications director for the aviators Jim thanks so much for coming on how are you what's a gym Brian JD thanks Jeremy on because you're enjoying your new time slot I know I am I can listen to my show I appreciate that I am I am getting used to waking up early in the morning I can have those crazy Vegas nights like I used to but what we'll get used to it will be okay anyway thanks so much for joining us here on such short notice so Jim this is really exciting I mean we all know how beautiful this ballpark is but did you expect them to make this decision so soon well someone like the W. M. B. A. R. he came to Las Vegas at the Mandalay bay it's it's it's really not very surprising that this was going to happen maybe not as soon as next year but obviously pretty quick after that so yeah this years version will be on FS one on Tuesday September fifteenth after the PCL in the International League playoffs are done it's literally like two days later it's a one game thing it it's kind of a neat thing Memphis is host of the few times and they did do a real good job AutoZone park is a is a beautiful ballpark yeah yeah no question well we look forward to that it's gonna be a fun game and just another great event that we're gonna be hosting here in Las Vegas Jim I want to talk about the story this Nathan Peter Peterson's story and maybe you could give us a little bit more background on it but this is a kid who's at a ball park who's just throwing in and gets gets radar just throwing a ball just having some fun as a baseball fan and he's clocked at eighty six miles an hour and then all of a sudden the Oakland ETS franchises Hey we need to sign this kids see what he can do can you kind of give us the background story this and then we'll talk a little bit about his performance last night over so it it's a gift we can throw that are out of the basement leave gone to a like a place where there's a ray gun and you throw it you think you really threw it harnesses sixty four and it's amazing all these guys in triple a are in these guys a runner up ninety six to ninety eight it's it's crazy how hard these guys throw now so it it is a gift but with that being said if you throw hard it's it's still you got to have the mechanics of pitching and and all that good stuff so I kind of don't blame the ace for taking a chance because not everyone can throw that hard yeah no question said so last night he makes is sort of professional debut right it was are a it was a rookie level Arizona league game he struck out all three batters and he said after the game last night was incredible and I truly a blessing as I made my first professional outing I mean this is a pretty good start for this again is it out of the realm of possibility Jim to think to yourself that in the next twelve months he could be on an aviator's roster the they're they're open eight employees so we as aviators front office we have zero input and have nothing to do with what the roster is that comes out here each night but the the odds of him coming up in the Pacific Coast League I mean I was either going to with I was soon they're gonna start him in the California League I mean that's were Tyler Murray was gonna go as somebody that skilled level he was first round pick of the age of course is a play football which you know you can't blame them at all but he was probably gonna start out in the California League so that shows you how advanced triple a baseball is so I know I can't speak for Billy Beane in the morally good development folks I would assume he would go to the California League this is kind of a movie script though I mean I yeah and I know this is kind of a hypothetical Jim and I don't really understand that but you know hypothetically speaking if this turns out the way maybe it can I you know it you never know three years from now two years from now five years not this kid does get a start in the majors and I think that is a possibility obviously he's got a long way to go but but if that does happen I just see this as a movie script I mean this is like a dream come true so to speak you know it's almost like rookie of the year or something like that or I can see this being a Hollywood movie and maybe Billy Beane you know gets another Brad Pitt performance I don't know yeah it would be again it it is a gift we can throw that hard now honing in mechanic's lien on guys I mean you you go to the games here details so good these guys at three four different pitches right and you guys are so good if you even if you're throwing a fastball these guys retirement and and they're going to clock it I mean but you know I I don't know what other pitches the house but again it'll be like you said to be interest the seed down the road a year or two from now if you just joining us Jim jam a with the aviators okay so let's talk a little about this aviator season the new ballpark everything we knew at least people in the media most people knew that yeah the crowd support would be fantastic for the first few weeks and then the question was well it might die down I certainly was not one of those people the first time I went to that ball park on opening night I said to myself this is gonna be an unbelievable success the area is fantastic you're right next to red rock downtown Summerlin the ball park looks like a major league ballpark it's got that kind of feeling and I said to myself there's gonna be a lot of consistency here but even I ask you this question even you jump did you think that you would have this type of consistency with the fans supporting ticket sales for the entire season no I mean obviously if it's somewhere for office again probably tonight or tomorrow get it to six hundred thousand mark in attendance will obviously still lead all minor league baseball they're still at the three markets in the international year of over five hundred thousand the couple in the detail round rocks are criminal over five hundred thousand but they had six hundred thousand in August twentieth or twenty first now with forty two so it's a I I thought we do really well this year you know the season ticket base tripled from Cashman field but yeah it's it's been discipline consistent the whole year and it does help me when when you have a a good product on on on the field it it really does help and all the I'll be on tomorrow we basically have all all this other stuff but it it does help to have a a winning product on the field that certainly hasn't hurt that's two questions one did I see it right ordered Matt Harvey pitch a couple days ago for the aviators the dark knight is in Las Vegas with them on a couple occasions and he's been great I met with him when he's with the Mets when they played here for big we week and Matt Harvey it was been great to deal with he pitched for shut out innings in unusual he was with the angels the angels are released him the ETS picked them up and I don't blame Oakland you know why not he signed a minor league deal and either pitch again into a coma when we go on the road on Friday so we'll see how things all play out from out here in the last couple weeks you pitch well in a certain in the low nineties and he didn't walk about her so I mean it's it's crazy how things change sometimes in life he was a monster pitcher he's right when the best pictures all baseball until he got hurt Hughes calls career too and the second question this success the the aviators of had in their first year do you think that translates to how well MLB team would do in Las Vegas what happens there's been some mis numbers up by your show but some other radio stations which I won't name what happens is if anyone in M. L. B. comes the town the the triple a team relocate so they become the Tucson aviators or the imperial valley aviators river they would go they'll get a huge pay out to relocate twenty five years ago in the Phoenix Firebird said go to Fresno Jerry Colangelo had to pay them seven million dollars to quote unquote relocate so you know it's it's apples and oranges I'm so you have to build something that Arizona has down there a retractable roof and that's a half a billion dollars so I don't know who's coming up with all that money but it's a it is a different animal so I still I don't think the NBA's come in sooner than later because it's a turn key at T. mobile they can be played right away I'm not sure what what would happen with MLB would now you have the NFL so you know you're talkin eighty one days we have to build a standalone facility like the Arizona Diamondbacks have because of the heat yep every tractable wrote that that is a lot of money personally myself I'm just looking forward to and I'm trying to push a professional roller derby female team in Las Vegas I'm still waiting for that day to happen you're just joining us Jim Java with the aviators Jeez I almost said the fifty ones there for a second we we still say it no fair enough okay so Jim now moving forward with this season talk to me about how many games got left on the schedule and of course looking into postseason play how can people buy tickets that I would imagine if your season ticket holder you got your seat locked in if.

"The pelicans are most likely team to move to New Orleans pelicans, and you see all these teams come in, so it's not just the WNBA triple baseball. NFL NHL UNLV division, one athletics, like football and basketball where desert fence, while the doctor wants to get them into. To a power five conference, you have these other places these other teams they're going to be coming in. So it's really going to become the next sports, mecca and people in fans like why come here for talking mentioning the pelicans, I've been always battling with the thought of having the Sacramento Kings come to Las Vegas because one? The Sacramento Kings fans have just lost all faith in them. If you watch a game if you watch a game you see more purple seats than people sitting in the seat. So in the name of the kings, we got the ACS. We got the nights. We got the lights, the kings, just make sense, the cages Mesa. But I'm good either way with the pelicans. I mean a d did sign a three year contract. So that possibly can go over the biggest star five ten years, five to ten Joseph last week. And if it does happen. And. You know, David Griffin is now the president NYU did with Cleveland Cavaliers with bond. They Bryant like a whole new team of the tree deadline each year. What he's doing with the magic in the draft. Now the Orlando Magic, but he's magic that he had for the pelicans, and that he got them number one overall pick with and most likely it's going to be Zayn Williamson from Duke the power forward, and he six ten and he's going bring that there and that could come to Las Vegas, and they could join with raiders the raiders really investing cells, and city. They have a charity softball event at Las Vegas ballpark in a couple of weeks, a few weeks, actually Riley Smith. All the goal of nights is hosting it know and for the fans raiders like I picks are going to be there. Amman several others. I heard. Marsa Reese is going to be their foreign fullback, some others. It's going to be a really all out very interesting. Cheer event. But the raiders are just immersing themselves in the city, have you noticed I've noticed just when you go to canes, and you and you order, your chicken, they offer you that large Cup in it says it's a Cup has raider Zimba on it, and is collector's item says impatiently waiting this city is impatiently waiting for the raiders because we've been teased. It's been like what we've known now for like two years around two years. They're gonna come here and then just the presence that they've had in the city has been amazing. Just seeing that logos on people's cars different gas stations. The raider ambassador training camp that they have going around different elementary middle schools around the city and having the ambassadors run drills with the kids, and, you know, that the children are future. So getting that m that presence in impacting the schools, which impacts the parents would then impacts. Relies on a day-to-day basis. The raiders are here and then just think about Leo great. How we spoke to him. And he's doing his speed training out here. He actually lives out here and at my job. There was somebody who moved in from the raiders from the team. So. It's real to me, any think about when they come here when the stadium is built in the drafts going on, and you can literally sit in the middle of stand in the middle of the strip in look to your left in look to your right. In everybody is getting along and celebrating football, this going to be amazing. It's definitely Mason. And if I may add onto Las Vegas charity softball game between the goal nights, non-readers, news, three osy reports that. It's going to be led by rice myth of the Vegas goal nights, teammates, and pro football hall, Famer Marcus Allen, and translators will be there. You'll include.

"I'm Ron future AL and we've got baseball coming up. We've talked a little bit of baseball ready. We got baseball coming up with Fran Reardon next hour. He's the new manager of the aviators the Las Vegas aviators playing at the Las Vegas ballpark right now. They're playing a game up there. They had batting practice today. So the first media day out there, they oh they showed the food some of the food prianti. So there's no and then a few other places. I don't know if some of the other places, but it was just Meatball subs and good stuff. Some hotdog burn my mouth. I I like smoking you want those I guess especially in a public. Intestines quick those. But some people do. Things like that. So it's it's a yet mixing the ballpark's between foo foo food and real honest to goodness ballpark food greens and protein in there. So they go, and you know from food go. Okay. I know we also talked a little hockey we're gonna jump right into it right now. Jeff Sharples Las Vegas guy who was here with the Las Vegas thunder for years and play to the NHL defenseman with the Detroit Red Wings, and Jeff Sharples. You're you're in Canada right now is that you're out of the country. The country right now, but happy to be with you on a low, Susie. Down there. It's a little cooler up here. The great white north. And now what you guys are what we're used to in Vegas, but it is beautiful nonetheless. So when I heard hockey I had to call perfect. Well, Suzy's a big nights fan Suzie winter the night's game to this year, not to brag also to the thunder games back in the day. Thunder experience you little young. We were all little younger back, then Jeff weren't we? So great experience and Suzy new hockey at work in Vegas. Oh, the thunder was great. It was awesome down there. And a lot of reminiscent T Mobile's reminiscent to the Thomas and Mack. And a lot of ways with the energy, the noise and. The people you talked to around the league. It's it's, you know, it's incredible. And it just carries on and here we are getting ready for your to the Vegas Golden Knights and they're in the playoffs and got a hand your give them credit because it hasn't been easy. But they got there. And they're extremely dangerous in my view. Disappointed that we don't have a Stanley Cup yet. Taking so long. We we better get in line with. Tick. Yeah. Funny. The other night it was there with Detroit. And of course, I'm torn when Detroit comes to town. Thank goodness only come once a year, but we had friends in from Detroit. And it was a lot of fun to to go to the game. But you could tell we didn't get off the nights then get off to a good start. And you could just hear the murmur like what's going on where we're supposed to everyone knows Detroit's down in the standards, and we're just supposed to walk over these guys and Saturday night, we're supposed to have a great time. And you know, we've talked about it throughout the year. How difficult the league is and the recipe for success at Vegas is booth up over the first two years they've been league is unprecedented. But you know, even a team might be Troy that's having an off year show the other night that you know, it's not easy. Anybody can come up and bite in. And I think it shows just how great the night have been. And everybody in the organization has been phenomenal players coaches, Gerald manager coats. And of course, Mr. Foley. And I think the way that they've made a show as well. As hockey has really brought us together. I mean, my boyfriend is from Detroit, and he's like, yeah. We don't have ice girls that come out get the ice every two minutes. There are many. I know. Well, the other night our last night when they played Edmonton is able to watch the game up here and on the Canadian feed, and it, you know, every commercial break like the local fans are used to see, you know, the strip while you got the blog yellow, and they got the fountains, and then you know, they make even the Canadian broadcasts made it like that this is the place to be. And then they did a little thing on how the nights are handed out at lunch boxes now with the biggest tonight's globe on it. And they get a little Dicker champs, and they get this and get that in their in their lunch box. So it's really a grassroots separate effort to get from the ground up and the community and you're right. It's been wonderful. We up all terrific people in our community service industry community people always giving and for you know, the nights to come in have the success. They've had it just helps the gel, and of course, with you know, everything that happened last year. With October one and the night took the torch, and they started running with it. And and everybody's got behind them. It's a great story. I mean it sports. I can't think of a bigger story especially in NHL since maybe Wayne Gretzky got traded. And and you know, the team story, I think the nights may be one of if not the biggest team story in the history of the league and that over one hundred years, so that's that's pretty special and as a kings fan, I sort of like that Gretzky trade that sort of put a smile on my face, but we get Jeff polls on the line with us here. Former thunder player former NHL player with the Detroit Red Wings with Suzy draining. I'm Ron few trial. And we're talking some hockey right now as we get set for the Stanley Cup playoffs. The the night's have two more games left in the regular season. They play Thursday here against air Zona and then Saturday against the LA kings on the road and then the series begins sometime middle next week. Against the San Jose Sharks. I want you to size this up. Jeff, the San Jose Sharks. And the nights know each other. Well, they played in the playoffs last year nights beat this sharks in six games. And they've their last game had a few fights in it. And if you browser Joe Thornton went added with Ryan Reeves they were going to stick the stick and badly. What what how do you see this matchup between these two pretty good hockey teams in the NHL? Yeah, they're both grown. They're both. Really good teams. You know, I had a cat. In the pre season and actually had a chance to watch some of the practices. And I was, you know, talk about them for just a moment. But I was amazed at how they are with their forwards and they have so much skill upfront. They're dynamic, and of course, then they make the trait for Carlson, which, you know, along with Brad burns and work ethic, and just you know, Braun and Corey Dillon, you know, these guys that's five, you know, everyday NHL defenseman, and you could put more than one of those guys in the superstar category. It looked like it was a match made in heaven along with Martin Jones who played you know, he's played in some big games and got them to the final few years ago. So they look like they were kind of when I watched them. I thought they were the consensus. But I in the Pacific give Calvary full marks for what they've done, son. They not unlike Vegas is add their bumped this year. But. If I was looking at data off to a rough start got it together to you know, quite total little bit. And then last night, they look a little bit more like themselves. Four or five games to me. Like they play two periods of hockey. They didn't get off to the best starts. But if you were to compare the teams looking at them, and what you see is you see very, very even teams. You've got ten ten players to play for the thirty six players the nights at over twenty goals. You have six players. So the twenty goals ten players for the knights have double digits more than ten goals twelve for the sharks. I think if you series up there's you know, there's a bunch of things we could talk about but one of the things for Vegas to be successful is going to they're going to need their speed when they're quick through the neutral zone the middle of the ice. They're they are really tough at five on five. It's good as anybody and their power play. Been hit myth. It's not so much the percentage it's the timeliness of the goal. And you know, and then if Vegas is getting us speed on them, which I think they will it's going to be really important for San Jose to to capitalize on the power play. And then you know, the big one is done for them to success in the series. They're going to have their goalkeepers. They're going to have to because we'd expect Mark under flurry to be back. And he been one of the top one to three goals in the league this year. I mean, certainly talk five I put them in the race. And and I would say, you know, he's right there with ski. There's some other goals that have had great years too. But. That's the recipe speed and power play timely goals for Vegas. And and then on the short side, you know, special teams same thing, but they're going to need some stops and to get by vagus flurry. And now you've got that situation. Max legacy has been sent back to the Chicago wolves. They didn't mention flurry. But you gotta assume that flurry then is going to be activated. Whether he's going to be ready to play on Thursday night. Don't know it'd be nice to see if he can get a little bit of ice time just to start getting fresh again and see how things go, but but you gotta have flip flurry. I say flurry at seventy five percent is going to be better than not having flurry. But still you you wanna you wanna have your goalkeeper hundred percent for the playoffs. Absolutely. And you know, if you look at the stats VC teams. I mean, we're at eighty games San Jose event. Couvert tonight nights are all, but you know, the the get go shots against per game. You know, everything the only thing that kinda sticks out to me. The power play percentage. She's a little higher day than it is for Vegas. And you know, that's why I think if they if they can get the timely goal that's going to be huge. But if you look at the goalkeeping, I mean, flurries ninety one and a half percentage, both the so big goalkeepers are under ninety, you know, mountain Jones straight up against leery about a half a goal game more that he's allowing me. And the other thing is is he's Mark on the flurry. I mean, everyone in the league, you know, knows this guy he at eight shutouts this year. He's second in the league and even milcome sue ban who came in and finally got a chance to play. And I thought you know, he had he he's played. Well, I mean he's over ninety saves percentage, which which is huge is goals against as under under both Jose goalie. So, you know, Malcolm, sue badness it's been good for him. And he got a big win last night. He's made some huge saves. They weren't some rough times with him. But that's the expect. That he's he on goalie, and you know, it's sort of it comes down to it. Obviously you'd have to give the edge in goal to Vegas. That's not to say that Martin Jones is capable of playing very well played very well on T mobile or this year. But I would have to say you're going to give me a goal in the Western Conference or in the league. I'll take mon- Marc Andre Fleury. He's the only one I know I'll take him. Another one couple of Modi's Carey price in Montreal who happens to get into the playoffs. Look out. He's capable of doing..

Monster upset in the making zags down seven with seven minutes left and your right? If they lose their not number one likely number one, I trust Ken Thompson, and all that sort of stuff. And that's what he says. Ends up next. So Suzie basketball here in town. I love basketball, especially with the high school basketball programs that are coming up. Coronado has a really good team. Gorman's always had really good recruits or not recruits, but kids that are going there recruits. There's them properly. Of course, they weren't. Now. Let's see. Okay. But the mountain west mountain west. You have a pack. Twelve is at T mobile. West coast going on right now at the Orleans, and then the whack is at the MGM grand. I believe that's that's plenty. That's. That's a lot. That's a lot. There are more basketball games held in Las Vegas than any other city in the country. But we still have not held a men's NC double A tournament game here in town is that. Why is that? I think for years it was anti Tarquini developed in the years of anti gambling. But now as the other sports, the NFL the NHL. It's going to happen. What do you think t mobile? It'd be a good spot for it. Why? Not right. Yeah. Their final four in the big stadium. In the raiders stadium. In the final high can't even finish. Maybe you will be. Be there. Yeah. Teams across the country Caesar. What do what do you think this year? Yeah. You don't even have to know anything about basketball, just as I n Williamson and go anywheres Nike's it when they don't explode. I think that. Yeah.

I think we said to two o'clock. Thanks for the might says he can play. Yeah. Can't get the ball on their phone number here. Seventy five seven fifty three ninety six to five seven K. Don is our number one. I mentioned a couple of other things a big thing that happened today in the world of sports here. The Browns at Cleveland Browns worst team in the NFL starkly over the last few years. Dell Beckham junior today from the giants traded him to know to the Browns, and they have one of the best young quarterbacks around and Baker Mayfield. We'll see he's able to do when they want a few games last year. Three three nights. You could be five seven go five hundred watch out. We'd better bet that right away up the Browns with what they do. They've got Joris Landry wide receiver along with Odell Beckham junior and a real good quarterback. Good young quarterback and Baker Mayfield. So that's that. Makes it interesting. The the NFL does you can't hate the Browns because they're so bad and they've been bad for so long. Like people hate the patriots. I don't hate the base. But I don't have. Okay. And I get that part of sports. I hate Robert Kraft. This is nice. Enjoys endings. Printings certainly happy for them to. So so that wasn't the residence, dude. I mean, come on with us every man's Goto. It me day spa. The deny deny deny. Also going on here is here in Las Vegas is a great time with in less than a month.

"And boy, that's that's a tough thing for a head coach to go and have to tell you know, I, and I was still thinking, you know, it's still going to be open competition. But again, knowing that you have a, you know, a guy coming in with a track record that makes him a private if favorite more than likely probably going to get a little extra look so to speak from the coaching staff. That's gotta be tough all the way around. So we'll wait and see. See how things pan out, but those are four universities right now looking to bring a guy in for a little one and done. And and we'll find out your take though on collar Murray. If he does go NFL again, people talk about the five nine five nine and a half. What it is Nick with the rules and the way the game. You can see it changing. And you and you can see your changing with the emergence of the young coaching innovative offensive minds the Kyle Shanahan's. And of course, Sean McVeigh's guys like that. And quite frankly, you know, Peyton to me is always been one of those guys. I mean, he's always been a gambling type guy. Andy Reid even has had offenses that he's opened up. So a couple of the old school guys. But you can see the way things are changing. And so when you look at Patrick Mahomes, get outside the taco box quickly more times than any other quarterback in the NFL and take advantage of the rules that you can throw the ball out of bounds. As long as you get into the line of scrimmage, and then run and slide, and nobody can hit you. Nobody can go to the head of the quarterback. I mean, there's a lot of rules that are in favor for that quarterback. So as we look. Tyler Moore and say, okay, he's got baseball there. Well, four four and a half million that he gets from the as there's no guarantee that he pans out as a baseball player. Yeah. He's got speed. But he still have to work his way up and find his niche there to where if he signs is the number one overall pick, and the reason I say that is because cliff Kingsbury when he was at Texas Tech made a comment that if I had the number one pick as an NFL head coach, I would grab Cuyler Murray. Well, he used the head coach of that team that does have the number one pick. And I know they have Josh Rosen. But I would not be shocked if that was the way that the Arizona Cardinals when and if some thought from Steve time, the general manager at Arizona may have thought that through thinking, you know, what this could be the guy and I'll get his take. If you really thinks that Kylie Murray is that guy and this guy grooms quarterbacks like he did a Texas Tech. We bring him in. And he changes are franchise to be one of those teams like the Rams. They might have. They might have looked at Rosen and said, well, we, you know, we just don't see him panning out. Obviously they were really challenged offensively this year. Not a lot of weapons. You know, an older, Larry FitzGerald and your go to receiver was Kirk. So I mean, not like the offense of weapons there. You know, listen breezes proved you could play at that heights. Russell Wilson proved you can play that high dip your special your special this kid, maybe special. But you know, I don't know maybe really doesn't contiguous. Hey, listen. I got a bunch of money coming in baseball. I'm gonna have my faculties thirty years down the road from now. He may take the baseball. But you know, obviously, it's an individual choice. I don't know. You know, what the kid loves more? But obviously the state for route in the lung jeopardy route is the MLB for sure. Yeah. In a selfish root for us too. Because I'd love to see him at the new Las Vegas ballpark playing for the Oakland A's AAA clubs. So I kind of hope he does choose baseball. But Nick, I want to switch over to the NFL with you. Of course, the championship games coming up this weekend. And we've got the tour the four top offenses in the NFL. Kenny talked about you know, the new rules for the quarterback. And here we had the four top offenses. I mean, when was the last time you saw that it was, you know, used to be defense wins championships. But Kansas City in New England. You know, we don't see New England as an underdog too often. But this is kind of a new Kansas City Chiefs in a new era with Patrick Mahomes. I think this ought to be a pretty good ball game. But I think the chiefs certainly deserved to be favored in you know, they've got the home field advantage. But I think they've been the better team all year long too high. I agree. I I'm not playing the game. But I don't really have the chiefs. I think they get the job done here. Moms has been the best quarterback in the league all year long. Just absolute monster home field. New england. Smoke and mirrors bad road team this year, they got San Diego at the right time. And they played a nice game at home or they've been unbeatable. I think the all their weaknesses show up this Sunday, you know that. I just think Kansas City's been better squad. And we'll be a better squad on Sunday. Nick. This has got to be like a kidney candy store for you with Patrick Mahomes, and what kind of prop bets you can make on this type of game. Are you gonna have your board loaded with prop bets it William Hill for the for both the championship games? Yeah. I mean, we got a bunch last week. We'll have even more this week. So yeah, it'll be all good. Mom's will be obviously touchdown passes. Completions attempts yards UTD passes, probably rushing yards. How many no look passes Heathrow's? We'll have all sorts of stuff for Patrick Mahomes. There you go. Okay. Now, the Kansas City New England spread last. We saw William Hill was minus three minus one ten normal vague total fifty five the other.
