"Shift shelters for children and families we can actually divert those funds to ensuring a quicker more efficient process through which we can reunite families with their sponsors these children with their sponsors who are family members who are trusted people in who are waiting for them here in the us loose. I wanted to ask you in terms of you. Mention your family came in the nineteen eighty you and your family but even back then even in the midst of civil wars in central america the united states granted very few salvadorans and guatemalans of refugee status or silent from those countries. So what are the conditions that you feel warrant of the asylum status now for those who are coming across the border. Even if there are nominally no conflicts existing in Now thank you for the question. When will anyone who is familiar with the present situation in what this country calls the northern triangle on dudas what the mala and an insult. Lord knows that there is rampant crime corruption. Children adults are being murdered There is lawlessness and terror in these countries and a lot of it goes back to As i mentioned that these geopolitical games that the united states used to play during the cold war which have left these nations without infrastructure and without really any government structure that favors democracy and as a result. We have children who are fleeing crime. A certain death at the hands of of gangs in a corrupt government or a government that governments that may lack the means to protect their own citizens. It is quite lawless. My family i still have family inside by all and each day things get worse because of covert of course s exacerbated the situation There is a growing desparation And while we don't want to play into the narrative that there is this surge and we don't want to spread any any misinformation we know that the rate of children families of persons who are coming to the. Us has been steady. It has not suddenly spiked. It has been steady over the past year. Not coincidentally because of covert and that has exacerbated these conditions in the northern triangle. Where crime there is. There is no protection for families for children. there there are very few jobs. The economies in latin america are collapsing. Because of what is happening due to the pandemic and things were bad before so we need to be cognizant that many of the families the people who are fleeing are doing so because of past policies that need to be remedied. Yes we must hold a biden administration accountable for working with those governments To ensure that folks in these areas are actually safe that they have access to the vaccine which you know inside by a country of of millions Less than thirty thousand people have begun back to be vaccinated so there are a lot of factors of human factors that are driving children and families here And you know these are not new factors as you point out but what is new is that this country has in some ways lost his soul. We are will lose. I wanted to ask you in terms of the of the so-called surge that it's been much reported of how much of that is actually from what you can tell a new waves of migrants coming from of the northern triangle. And how many of those are people who have been shut out over the last several years by the trump administration and effectively dumped in mexico. A right across the border and now think that with the new biden administration. Nobody an opportunity to have their cases reconsidered. Their chances reconsidered a really good question. When i don't have data that would indicate one way or another. Whether the number of folks who are coming are primarily folks who stayed in mahyco who were not permitted to access the asylum process that the us is responsible for ensuring under international and domestic law. We have an asylum plus process in place that we seem to ignore. So i don't have data in terms of who were folks who remained in mexico through that trump era policy where we completely abandoned the asylum process and did not even Process the number of folks that we needed to we asked people to stay and await their number so that they could seek asylum that that was unprecedented. We had never done that But we do know that there is not a surge there is data by the american immigration council. That shows the numbers have been fairly steady for the past year. And what we are seeing. Unfortunately that worries me that concerns the communities that served these children and families is that we are sort of reverting to some of the trump era practices where we are not pushing for means to efficiently to quickly unite children and families with their us sponsors. That have been waiting for them. We're going to have to leave it there but ten more seconds i have hope there is a there are progressive members of congress that understand that are willing to work with community organizations to ensure that children are protected and that we remain true to what the values of this country what we tell the world the values of this country are and as you your article. That children should be treated as children luis lopez. Thanks so much for being with a senior supervising attorney with the southern poverty law center When we come back we'll be joined by the award winning investigative journalist. Jean good eto who just wrote a piece. The maga- clowns making chaos at the border have.

"On let me let me stop. Let me stop. Let me listen to my team. One more time. Forgive me forgive me. That has not happened. That has not happened for more. We're joined by. Luis lopez senior supervising attorney with the immigrant justice project with the southern poverty. Law center she came to the united states as a ten year old refugee with her family from salvador which she writes about in her op-ed for the new york times headlined migrant children deserve better welcome to democracy now loose. It's great to have you with us so if you can respond to what's happening on the border not under president trump but under president biden. And if you can fold in your own experience and history and what needs to be done. Thank you amy. Good morning you. Us well on it truly is an honor to be here And thank you for this space. So what is happening at the southern border is a shameful. We as a country should remain vigilant and hold any administration accountable regardless of political party with respect to our treatment of children seeking refuge who are fleeing countries that are in turmoil largely because of our geopolitical policies over the past several decades And with respect to how this mirrors our journey my family's journey to the united states it really breaks my heart. Amy that when we came to the us in one thousand nine hundred eighty. I was accompanied by my parents and my brother. My father had received a death threat He was teacher. So was my mother. We were forced to flee inside. The united states was funding. A war was funding the military. That was killing thousands of people and we fled. We left everything we had everyone. We knew our loved ones are family and set for the us where we had family in new york if i had if we had fled under the conditions that exist now i very likely would have never had the chance to serve for the united states Us department of justice. I never would have had the chance to sit here with you to talk about how we can do better in. We must do better for these children in these families. You know one of the things that concerns me. The most is that while we recognize that the new administration the biden administration has made some positive impact in overtures to ensure that there is a fairer process. for example they have removed the They have revoked. I should say the law that the memorandum that had required ice and oh are the office of refugee resettlement which generally a process processes unaccompanied minors the company children who come to the. Us seeking asylum. There had been this process in place where these two federal agencies shared information that had a chilling effect on many of the sponsors and family members who were seeking to reunite with these children because ice was using this process this process that should be full of hope and should be humane as a means to identify and deport people Those sponsors who were seeking to reunite with their family members so we do recognize that the biden administration has made some positive Taken some positive action but the fact remains that children continue to come to the us trying to seek refuge and solace and comfort away from the horrible situations that we find in the northern triangle in guatemala salvador in dudas and in may of course and what we as a country and what we would like to hold the biden administration accountable for our policies that are humane. Better family in child centered. We have the means to be more efficient in terms of reuniting families and children at the border with their hosts here in the us the biden administration themselves acknowledged that eighty percent of folks or more who come to the border. Come because there is a relative there. Is someone waiting for that person or that family here in the us. So instead of spending millions and millions of dollars on cbc's and ice temporary shelters make.

"Welcome back. We're gonna get right back into the special best of episode of the Ben Shapiro Show. So Amy Klobuchar has had enough of people to judge people to Judge and Amy Klobuchar despise one another just spies one another. It is amusing, very amusing. I'm gonna give you just a taste of this is said here is Pete Booty Judge. Okay, so here Here's one. Probably people to Judge Peabody Judges more produced in Taylor Swift, right. Everything about people who judges produce from all of his stories about like, Oh, I learn Norwegian in order, read a novel. To hear. I am the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, a small town but really a microcosm of America. The things like like something, Indiana. I'm sure it's pleasant South Bend. Indiana has about as many members as my as my synagogue like they're 100,000 members of South Bend, Indiana. You got 8000 votes, okay, And And so his thing has been that he is essentially a boy scout and untouchable Boy scout at that, And then he's perfect. He's perfect. He's never made mistake people judge ever in his entire life. No mistakes. Okay, so he decides to go after Amy Klobuchar on the stupidest possible topic. Is like something that gets under his skin. What gets under people to judge your skin that Amy Klobuchar was asked Whether she knew the name of the president of Mexico, and she admitted that she did not The record of him is Andrew's manual. Luis Lopez over the door. Okay, that that is his name. Who cares like honestly, who cares? People make mental flubs all the time. Also Easy answer to this question, if you don't know the name of a president of a foreign country You are buying me President of the United States. You know, it's more important that they know your name. They know your name because more Erica. Okay, That's a perfectly fine answer An acceptable answer. You don't know something about like the president of Botswana. And you're like, Yeah, I don't know his name. That's why I have a state department. We get together and for all those name and we'll have good conversations. Okay, people. Judge decides to go after any club charges, though she's stupid, and Amy Klobuchar is having none of it and she basically picks up the podium and hit him with it. You're staking your candidacy on your Washington experience. You're on the committee that oversees border security. You're on the committee that does trade. You're literally in part of the committee that's overseeing these things. And we're not able to speak to literally the first thing about the politics of the country to ourselves. Are you trying to say that I'm dumb? Are you mocking me here,.

This kind of focused on the guys who you know are in my direction. Auriemma a lot of options so to entertain that. I don't be. I guess more about if he's talking about like saunders would be for saunders title. I think is what he's been saying loud. Like a super middleweight. Champion avenue at some point. If that's the case we can talk because obviously he'll be inside of you know my goals and drains and wanting to be a two way class champion so we'll see how that looks once presents himself before i let you go you know. Boxing had a great night recently with taffy. Moluccas knocking off romashenko. Not only was it. A great moment for twenty-three-year-old loma shaneco or lopez rather dared to be great and stepped in and beat one of the top pound for pound guys. But you see the ratings were high social media interest was when you as a fighter see stuff like that i mean does it how does it how does it make you feel like you re. How do you react to to moments. Like luis lopez. I love it i love. I want to say congratulations to Lopez he did a phenomenal job. And you know he represented brooklyn very well so it was a massive performance and you know he showed where he had to mature and take on the experience in the later rounds and he weathered the storm and still remain in and with strong. And i applaud. You know so he definitely showed on brooklyn. We applaud that by knife october. I'm grateful because you know. Boxing is still the best in the world and even during this pandemic. I'm glad that we can give people the best price that they're asking for. And that you know that they wanna see you know. This was something. That's been brewing for years so that it could do the justice and give us what we predicted. I'm happy you know. Boxing is living on in striving. And we have these young guys come in wanting to make a name for themselves. Enjoy just such so. There's always going to be the best in the world because there's always going to have that talent and that was to show that you know we seen that last year it just it showed me and you have made this point like boxing is still very much alive and well it just needs like you can't sort of tell people to watch something you have to show them.

All you've got demi sam bring them all on like that's the attitude i think boxing needs and for whatever reason hasn't had in recent years i love it. I love the guys attitude. The young they're bullying and brash and they have a lot to prove but the thing about it is that had the skill tobacco out. And that's why. I'm so excited about it. Because you know they're in this new technology social media way by its is like a lot of celebrities at see war taken advantage of social media. They don't really deserve that.

She's also relatively young, 55. And could help energize millennial voters. Another area where she could give beina boost is perhaps less obvious.

Morning, Cherry. Thanks so much for being here. You've done some research on this recently. What kind of support does Kamala Harris have among Latino voters? I always found in our recent polls is comma. Harris is a lot of support with Latino voters. 59% of Latino voters said they would feel excited about Harris ticket then this was back in June. We also found that the support is also strong among young Latino voters. 61% of young with your voters said they would be excited about a hair's ticket. And actually, 56% stated that if Biden order choose Harris as a running mate who would actually make a more likely to support and vote for Biden, And this is a new Harris was a favorite with Latino voters dating back at least 2 2010 when she first ran for attorney general of California, right. Yes. In 2010 and 2014 Latinos supported Kamala Harris of Attorney general and then again in 2016 in Senate race against sort of a little Sanchez for the California Senate. She also polled well with Latino voters as a candidate in the presidential race last year. Yeah, So when we look at the June 2019 debate, we see that there was a jump from 6 to 22% with 16% jump among support from Latinos. This comes before and after the Debate. And so we know that when I listen to a comrade to say they really resonate and increasing support, and we can expect to getting you see this in the coming months. What is it about Harris that has attracted so much support from Latino voters, something in her background, her track record that resonates So come here, daughter of immigrants, and I think for Latino voters that really speaks to their experience. United States. She also has been a vocal supporter of black lives, not a movement, and when we think about What young Latinos support nowadays that is very strong on their priority list, and we see that in our poll. There's been a lot of concern that Harris is tough on crime track record as a prosecutor could hurt her with black voters is that record an issue a concern when it comes to the Latino community. Our research suggests that while Harris has been in politics for a long time that the voters really care more about our current policies that are passed on this combat, a margin of 2 to 1. Additionally, like I said her recent support Black lives matter has really resonated with electing our community. Could enthusiasm for Harris help boost turnout among Latino voters. We definitely believe that they can. She is strong vocal supporter and I think really resonates with Latinos and young Latinos who really want to be motivated to go out into the poles on DH, even for undecided voters. We expect these trends to continue as she's taking on the establishment in the Senate. Being a woman of color. Do you think that Ah Harris is presence on the ticket could boost turnout among Latinos in key battleground states. Are there places where she could really, you know? Help Tio move the needle helped get Biden across the finish line, Perhaps Yes. So in the last in a recent poll, we did cross six battleground states in the United States. We found that support for Harris is strong and it's growing as we continue to learn about her. So the more that she reaches out to these voters more that we can expect these trends to continue When you say battleground states. Are we talking about places like, say, Arizona? Maybe even Florida? Yes. So our survey actually looked at Arizona, Florida, Texas state like Pennsylvania, North Carolina, where you know population in Arizona is at 2.1 million and and range is a little bit over 800,000 in Pennsylvania. So it sounds like from what you're saying that that could potentially be really key and could shift the dynamics of the race. Perhaps We definitely believe so. On East Lopez, his research and data analyst with the political opinion research firm Latino Decisions. Thank you so much. Thank you. You're.

"But my God, it looks like the end was near. Pete Hoffman doing a fine job back in Manhattan in a cost of producing at home. I'll get back your calls in a minute at 877337 66 66 I'll mention Brody bandwagon and joining us. At five o'clock today. 10 years of the decision, which I know a lot of people have talked about at my thoughts about what it felt like that day. Not that I ever thought LeBron was going to the New Jersey Nets, but act you didn't think it was going to the Knicks. Believe it or not, I actually think that But here's the real anniversary. Here's the real one. As much as met fans in Yankee fans bicker at each other. As much as there is this food. Garrett Cole, Jacob deGrom. Pete Alonso, Aaron judge, the Mets and Yankees playing two different leaks. And I mean that in many different ways, Do I mean that from a winning standpoint from a money standpoint, but also a literal standpoint, they playing two different leagues. They don't compete with each other. You know, when the Mets are playing the Tampa Bay Rays this season, assuming those games happen, I assume just about every Yankee fan is gonna root for the Mets without bat, and I Cause it's in their best interest. Just like I will. I'll be clearly for the Yankees when they play the Nationals and the Braves. But 20 years ago, there was actually a rivalry and it didn't necessarily start with Doc Gooden. But it kind of did because if you remember look, the mansion Yankee started playing in 1997 8 a great three game. Siri's. The Mets won the 1st 1 The Yankees won the next, too. They had a rather competitive Siri's in 1998. The Yankees won the 1st 2 The Mets won the Sunday night or remember that weird one with Luis Lopez hit a sacrifice fly. 1999. Great It was. It was very entertaining. Yankees won the 1st 2 at Yankee Stadium. It's the first time they did the home at home or not home and home exactly three games at Yankee three games at Chez Bobby Valentine watches his coaches get fired. The Mets win that Sunday night game. They turn their season around. They got the big Matt Frankel game on Saturday, but at the end of the day, the Yankees won three games, The Mets won three games. That was it. We all moved on in 2000. It became real not because I knew they were gonna play in the World Series. But because of two things that happened 20 years ago today, number one doctor. I know Doc had a history with the Yankees, obviously, from 1996. But if you remember back Tio late June early July of 2000 when the Yankee signed them He barely pitched in the minors leagues barely and his first start back after the Yankee signed him. Was it Shea Stadium against the Met? It was clearly done on purpose. It was clearly and I gotta tell you looking back at it. I have no problem with it. I actually respect It was George Steinbrenner clown in the Mets, and I gotta tell you, I really don't looking back on it. No problem with it. That's what happened. That's let's all be honest about what happened. Okay. Doc Gooden and signed by the Yankees makes two starts both at golf closely wasn't double A wasn't triple A And a fast track it they get him up and boom. He's facing the Mets on a Saturday afternoon, July 8th, 2000. But remember This is the day night to stadium doubleheader. And all came about because of a rain out a few weeks earlier, which you may remember as the Robin Ventura jumping on the tarpaulin game at Yankee Stadium. The Mets and Yankees split the 1st 2 games at Yankee Stadium. David Cohen, who was having a rough year that year pitches like two or three innings to start, I think the Mets with down in the game one, nothing or two. Nothing. Rains calm wiped the game out. And they come up with this really cool idea, and it's happened a few times since the two stadium doubleheader. And I was pumped up about me and my dad were like we're taking the train. We're going old school first game, Ajay next game at Yankee Stadium, but it starts with Doc and I gave him a standing ovation. I don't care what any of the Met fan did. I think he deserved it. It was his return of Shea Stadium was his first game against the Mets. Then obviously the game starts and, you know, it's the Mets against the Yankees. It's the subway, Siri's and dark pitches. Well, if you remember he wasn't great, but he pitched well, and what I recall about this is that the Mets had chances against Doc almost every inning and just couldn't get the big hit. They couldn't break through. And That was the biggest problem they couldn't get. It couldn't break through against him, and they couldn't get to the Yankee bullpen. One stock came out after five because Jeff Nelson shut him down. Mariano shut him down, and the Mets end up losing the game for two to And so Not only is Doc back As a Yankee at Shea. But he wins the game. And I do think all these years later and certainly thought it then it was all done on purpose. George wanted docket, Shea Stadium, which I again, I admit I respect But then you have the nightcap that and if you remember, and I don't know why I remember. But Glendon Rush was on the mound for the Mets and Roger Clemens was on the mound for the Yankees. And besides the 86 connection The Mets have had success now against Roger Clemens. Specifically, Mike Piazza had success against Roger Clemens and in his first at bat. I was sitting in these awesome seats at Yankee Stadium. Most of the time. I've been a Yankee Stadium. They have not been awesome seats. Lot of upper deck came too of the world. Siri's upper deck in the corner game one of the world, so it didn't matter was in the building. But for this particular game wasn't great seats right behind the plate. And P R T get drilled in the head. I gotta be honest in the moment. I wasn't necessarily angry. I just thought I'd hit him in the head. I mean, that stinks. Hopefully Mike's okay. I'm concerned about him. He went down. He didn't get off. But I didn't necessarily jump to the conclusion of Roger Did it on purpose I should have. I should have, but I didn't. Now what elevated? This was not Roger Clemens beating Mike Piazza. That's not what elevated it. What elevated? It was Mike Piazza calling Roger Clemens out the next day. If you remember what he said, he said, and I quote I don't want to say he intentionally hit me in the head, but I think he intentionally threw at my head. There's no place for that in baseball. I have no respect or appreciation for his comments and those of the comments that, Rogers said. Ball got away from me. I didn't come on purpose, which, of course he's going to say I have no respect or appreciation for his comments. Roger Clemens is a great picture, but I don't have respect for him now at all. So that's what made it a big deal. Mike Piazza did.

"Association member FDIC wait before we get back your call as I said earlier on the show and actually started this before that the show even started you know three and a half hours ago I found an old game on you too they'll be a lot of this of the next couple of weeks and months and the game for whatever reason I decided to watch today was opening day for the Mets in nineteen ninety eight a game against the Philadelphia Phillies that was zero zero into the bottom of the fourteenth inning and I mentioned early on that there's gonna be a lot of us try to find the old games that one would watch no I said early on a loopy and Rosenberg is here too and give them credit as they risk themselves to come in try to be safe keep themselves clean and keep this radio station moving they deserve a lot of credit maybe even paid more but that's just me unfortunately make those decisions but if I if I did I warned all right what game jump in your mind would you want to re rock re watch if it was available on you tube Logie you know I for me I mean obviously the Super Bowl in two thousand eight I mean that that I remember being at college I remember that Tyree catch up until that point in my life everything in sports for me was negative and I'm not talking just be in a mad fan and being a giants fan but I always root against the bulls and the spurs I was ready for a little guy and for so many years the Lisco kite is never one I always felt like the National League in the all star game so that was the first time that I can't even remember where like something really positive happen because I think about like old Mets games but they're usually followed like a really great moments followed by a bad one like I think of the grand single but then after that I think of Franco Benitez and Kenny Rogers like it's hard to not marry the two I think of the Chavez catch and then I think of you know Yadier Molina so it's hard to like you know who you think of a positive net game and then it's also followed almost immediately by a negative feeling soul I know you said find one game but I think we have a lot of time on our hands month possibly months want to speculate too far but I almost think I follow like an entire run like you know we binge watch TV shows yeah he binge watched season maybe Superbowl run or a fee for your for your for the match the or something like that and go through all kinds of games kind of like the like with Matt classics do they because they take a year and they pick up all the great finishes in games as being just season well you know what else I like to the old NBA all star games I really love watching those in the nineties I really do I think I was a kid like now I never watch Australia's right logged I even even the baseball stadium which I still like to to an extent but the old NBA all star games in the nineties with Jordan I loved watching those I think it's a very good idea because it look let's get it based on that answer of winning the Super Bowl as a giant fan for you you're probably too young to remember the first to be on the playoff run and I think you just answer right there you've got a handful of games to enjoy the moment you've got four games to run through that you can enjoy the Tampa game which which it does get results I don't remember that game because it's like an after thought it was kind of a dull game it's like an afterthought yeah I remember Jeff Garcia as the starting quarterback for Tampa not much else yeah that's and then obviously you've got the Dallas game which was a credible yup the Green Bay game a Tom Coughlin's cheeks get red light and airy and then the Superbowl and I think what's great about rewatching that is because it's only thirteen years ago you'll get it in HD sorry yeah that's right the problem I have a lot to gain from nineteen ninety eight and the quality of the exactly top notch but you know what I get I get your point about every good moment you have is usually followed up by a bad moment yeah that's why a random opening day even though the Mets in nineteen ninety eight choke let's face it they lost their last five games of the year they got swept in Atlanta they choked away a spot to make the playoffs that year I don't think of opening day in that regard I think it's so far removed from their choke it's even far removed for trading for Mike piazza that it's literally just these game on its own and it doesn't make me think of how the season went which let's face it didn't go well considering they missed the playoffs and I'm gonna suck up to here because I wanted to bring this up to a few weeks ago on the air and now it's like the perfect opportunity this is one of them might I obviously mean Nick fan I mean you know what that site even go down that road but I think I have no and I told you this off the I have no ill will towards the natural I'm not one of these big fans I think like the necks of the greatest franchise ever in the project and I think a lot of reason why Nick fans alike that's because a root for other big brothers in town and they think the next in the same category well they're not they're disaster thank god for the Timberwolves otherwise the next would be the worst franchise and like sports over the last thirty years that being said I was really into those chasing kidnapped teams and I think back to that Baghdad three overtime playoff game against the pay song how great was acting that rivalry in general but like what they have the Celtics and the pistons that game was on believe I vividly remember that game by so that that's a little that's all suck up here there here's the problem I don't know how to come back I understand no I due to some isolated I just said I didn't want to isolate the Mets and I talk to isolate something that unfortunately bad news file I mean that's that's the ultimate problem that I'm running into listen to three overtime game against the pistons was in its moment truly incredible special anything about what Brian Scalabrine he did that day after you know basically you A. Kenyon Martin fell out yeah I had G. sync Collins found out that the bank of Rodney Rogers is like basically everybody's traveling out of this game chasing kids not having this incredible performance Brian Scalabrine leads them to victory I can't think of that game without thinking of blowing game six at home yeah and then getting a nightly nine out in game seven but I got it I understand impressive member Evan I gotta tell you I I I I couldn't remember anything about if triple overtime game I couldn't remember anything to answer your question I think re watching the Rangers ninety four copper on all that's a fascinating rewatch re watching the seventy two intend bowl season would be great well you got to pick those spots in that you can't watch the entire I I understand that you pick or some random games here and there and also I posted it and didn't you know horror but did Daniel Murphy run in the playoffs and fifteen would have been would be really nice to rewatch the worst cluster of like two or three weeks yeah and you know what I can enjoy the cubs series in the Dodgers series without thinking of the royal series I think I'd be right I think most people I mean I accept the fact that like the roads are just gonna win that year nothing's gonna stop them I agree with the upon that I've always said that and you know what else is cool about watching some of these old games if you look for further back you go here the old announcers it just warms the cockles of your heart I know we just had Meltzer on wrestling whatever here gorilla and Bobby and chassis it just puts a smile on my face I don't care from watching a band Hercules match against the junkyard dog and it's terrible especially compared to the standards Hey we're just hearing and all those guerrilla isms now it it's just it just is great because the announcing now in wrestling is well she sleep bad but back then it was just great so now to go back and listen to Marv Albert called you know next Pacers are or I'm fortunately watching the bulls I know Paul huge bulls fan but it just it just puts a smile on your face in a time where you know people could could use it we can use a smile I agree I agree both very good choices right now by the way in this game I'm watching it's the bottom of the fourteenth inning zero zero the Mets have two men on base I don't think they've had two men on base all day two one nobody out for Fonzie now here's the question do you belong to with regard to all funds are all right he's one of your better hitters you got guilty on that because that was terrible the year before members two years removed now from that great ninety six season and Luis Lopez is in this game is after that so as much as I'm a fan of both the I got it I don't both here in the lobby I live for the swing the bat was that pre or post men in black Bernard Gilkey we did but we did minimal I come out I don't have looking it up right now yeah there in ninety eight ninety nine ninety seven summer ninety seven which post post minimum he was a he was a Hollywood type I think the camp on did you can trust them I agree you know I've given out you don't want to I don't like Ponting don't give up and give open ended funds he's one of my best hitters in your right I got Gilkey Louise Lopez and a pensioner after that and you know what god does to the pensioners gonna be nobody left on the bench in fact the last guy left on the bench is Alberto Casteel and who in their right mind would have confidence in him at all Fonzie lays the ball down and they got the lead runner out at third he couldn't even get the bump them one believable my first and second one out we'll keep you posted Chris in Lindenhurst Hey Chris Hey what's happening what's up man it's good that you mention you too a minute ago because my call is going to be about what actually comes in what's called the YouTube rabbit hole number would you go on YouTube you start watching videos you see all the links on the right and you start following the link you click into one please come up and you never know where you're going to go especially in sports you'll find videos of things that you maybe haven't seen in twenty thirty years since but on the watch so yeah the night I was doing this computing and I came across a link to the end of the movie the natural which as you know was probably in my mind the greatest baseball movie ever created phenomenal Robert Redford and he did that I I wind up finding a discussion on the web of what do you think Laurie Hobbs is bad for at the end of the nineteen thirty.
