"Ninety four W. I. P. whose because a lot of issues with the go to Broad Street thank you points out of spite gasket allows white wait a minute what are the issues that I'll give you one giving you something to talk about for full well giving issue right now I want to show today were somehow I got a downgrade Brian Dawkins well you know why why is that because people are leaning into emotional connection and putting him above Barkley and Lindros and they shot it well but the question is when we say greatest young is emotional connection part of being great well obviously it's your world today she's got Jason Kelsey number one but think of it absolutely nonsensical he's going to be a hall of Famer think of the think of the athletes we've run out of town because they do not have that emotional connection thing about Scott Rolen general is a hall of fame player couldn't make it here because he didn't he didn't like us that's part of it you gotta like this well I mean it's not even my decision anyway also turned it well right he turned down that big Phillies deal then they said okay we gotta Trajan any mighty mite it turns out a part because he had like towns possible well I think it's likely well you also have like the Phillies organization never competing sure you know he's got to go to the try to beat Maddux Smoltz and Glavin he's got Manny moe and Jack page I'm a doctor every other than show don't you think that your you you've you've been a huge Iverson guy yeah you know on yeah they're here don't you think that part I mean here's a guy who got to the finals once one one finals game obviously had a way shorter career and achieved a way less than he ever should have given his his talent how good he was don't you think that who he was as a guy makes you like him more yes but if I didn't vote hi to put him above Steve Carlton I don't put him above Eric Lindros so here's the thing yes Mike I'm a very objective guy when I'm put together my poll and I think there's a lack of objectivity here were people are leaning into this connection thing and it's I mean look there's like I think doc is going to end up in the top five I don't know but I put talk between eleven and fifteen and I just that would be a case study of emotional connectivity leading to irrational voting well you not having dark top ten we're doing we're asking if John marks is a Philly guy I think the question might be answered a camera at Philly hosting never come from Philly how old are you hello the forty two so hopefully by the time you're fifty or so you become a human and you understand emotion we properly jazz there's a lot of emotions right yeah it has a really wide against white yes so I guess that's what what would you who would be your guy or your top five for top you know athletes to Philly athletes last fifty years so I haven't done my list I think it's sort of on my my votes don't count and I don't want to influence anybody the only thing that anybody's asked me is who is my number one of my number one is Nick Foles well that's ridiculous it's it's not really it's obvious I think to me I think like I think when you look in the history of Philadelphia sports there is one game that is the most important game and that is the eagles winning the Super Bowl and he didn't just happen to be there he played a perfect game after playing a nearly perfect game against the Vikings also has the record for most touchdowns in a game the record for most completions in a game was a Pro Bowl MVP like if you if I if I gave you all these facts and I was saying this to Ike if you just come back from Mars you're Philadelphian I gave you all these facts about Foles up until that point I said and oh by the way he outdueled Tom Brady in the Superbowl to win Super Bowl MVP for the eagles first Superbowl you said this guy should it is one of the greatest of all time he follows that you should have Corey Clement your it gives a great cats I'm Matt stairs top twenty look at but the match there's a masters moment is great but it is not in the same league as the false moment yeah I isn't I don't know I'm L. as in Agra learn your top twenty I'm not the same not the same but but remember there was one guy that through all of those passes one guy Julie just because you you you're for your plants feeling lawyers Rayburn yeah right bird basketball so I suppose it I saw it again but snapped a maul the ball like the the NBA stuff we're we're here in some some dissatisfaction from players are not on the record yet but obviously some guys are thrilled given some info to Welsh ager would ask reporting you know consternation are you concerned at all and like don't you think that the players a little late to the party to express this after their darted in agreement yeah I I think the this are are seeing the results for that look we all agree to terms of service on our phones without reading them right we all you know and you know you guys are union I don't know if you read your entire contract before something gets ratified your even your own contract and I think what happened was the NBA and the Players Association came up with this agreement and many of the players did not look at the agreement and they are reading it in in in you know in the media just like we are false and that yeah I I agree with you and they're like I'm finally maybe Chris Paul's fault if you didn't like really grab the guys and say Hey guys gonna vote let's let's really know what we're voting by the way and this is the problem with having star level players as the representation for the union in the in that negotiations because the star level player who by the way on a playoff team isn't going to care in the same way that you know a a minimum guy who happened to be in Orlando or on the magic or something is going to care in the same way so I don't think there's any chance or any rest I just think that there and I think what's interesting it isn't their safety that they're worried about they just don't want to be like not be able to leave Disney world for two months and that's why the NBA yesterday came out with their with their fact that said Hey guys fourteen twenty two teams you guys will be out within fifty three days so it's not that bad like well the fact that we you know I mean come on now I mean what what is what is this I just let's talk about some Sixers yeah as we certainly hope to have them back as well playable expected this format in Orlando help or hurt the Sixers well I don't think I think this is bad for the Sixers I I mean Joe like yeah yeah his jokes you know what happened what Joe does with this is you know how for you as in years and years and F. L. teams didn't go for it on fourth down because what they thought about was well what if I don't get it they didn't think about what the advantages where if they do get it so what Joe is it Joe is thinking about the Sixers in a vacuum and he's saying here is why it's good for the Sixers but they're not he's not thinking about it is what is it also good for every other team in the exact same way not the water bodies about why because they would have had home court advantage okay but wait with with things called fans and now they don't right but they were what what was the record on the road Joe well let's get out better as above average above average the work like they should have it one of the best records in the rain twenty nine and they have the five and then they lost three times at home you don't think this hurts the Milwaukee Bucks a no lose game one no seven office out I'll tell you this.

"Golf club once again your hosts PGA professionals Jordan young Mike Fay and Brian cairns and W. J. ours own Sean blue Jr well golf is going to be front and center again next Sunday as it was today it will be again next week everybody's gonna be talking about the match the champions for charity that's at the Metalist are down in Florida and it's interesting we just had a professional soccer player on in case you haven't figured that out that's Brian goose Finnerty who played for the Detroit rockers back in the day heck of a of a keeper obviously doing well right now in the golfing world as well but I wanted to run this by you guys because you hear about the hockey players out there Rick rolled was a notable notable baseball player who was a pretty good golfer you guys have been teaching you guys have been a different courses have you had a run in with an athlete that just so happens to be a great golfer as well is there anybody that comes to mind Jordan I'll start with you first is there anybody that comes to mind because as you well know you were talking about it would during McCarty on Friday night on on the show right here on seven sixteen WJAR that guy if he had his druthers he'd be on a golf course every day seven days a week all day long but is there somebody you golf with Jordan that really jumped out to how good they were yeah I mean I'll I like the hockey guys you know over the years I've played with a few but I have to go way back to when I was a lot younger and a good friend of mine norm maciver Norma Kuiper is now the assistant general manager at chick in Chicago but he played twelve years in NHL he was you can easily turn pro and he still plays pretty well but I also got to meet Brad hall and played a lot of golf with him through norm and and Brett was pretty good at the time he was he was a little later at that time he was about a one or two any cap as well but he was really good and those guys competitors uses their strong these days I haven't played as as as much for some of the stronger players out there but I know peace you know some a lot of the pitchers Maddux Smoltz those guys those guys are pretty good now you got a lot of the quarterbacks to like Romo in those guys that they're doing well the C. right yeah I put a lot of the older guys like Shane Rawley Donny Robinson Jenner was really good down there at his home track record and I played it okay Starbucks a bunch of times but the guy that really stuck out to me was Steph curry and his dad I mean they are really really good I mean step curry could walk the walk Bob the dog walk the walk whatever you call it done I'm not as good as bothered hello Sir are with their voices on the radio but he can really really can really flat out playing his dad was equally as good as they have a single digit handicap to Mike yeah speaking of basketball players if any of you guys have for us in the last dance Michael Jordan and the team played a lot of golf at that time that we really didn't know about so it's pretty cool to see you now these athletes playing golf like this we're going to see on their next week right John can be found yeah he you know that's the interesting thing about it Mike to me is is how many of these guys are are almost obsessed with golf I mean there's there's no other way said like Jordan you were telling me the other day Chris Osgood who by the way should be in the hall of fame but that's a discussion for a different day but Chris Osgood was was out at your course driving the ball the other day and we need these guys it really becomes a passion for them yeah Hey you know I mean Chris comes out he lives close by so he pops over his balls out I don't talk too much I'm gonna do is own thing with his kids and and enjoy the privacy and he's working on his game just like the guy next to him and the kid next to him and and they love their stuff they're still competitive juices and some of the players that are still planned they want to get out of work on their games too and right now I mean they can still go and play golf again nothing else going on well I saw Mr I've gotten the short game area and one of the ball garden that's all I gotta say that four little Palmer park itself real apparent all I gotta say hi everyone I said something on Friday night I was just trying to be polite that he was knocking the dust off but I didn't mean knocking the dust off to the guy next to him because there've been a few guys I remember I mean you guys correct me if I'm wrong former redwing Geren Veach L. allegedly was a really good golfer I don't know if you guys have any experience with that but he was a really good golfer and and somebody that I knew in a previous life told me Jordan much like you said he was good enough for you could've gone pro yeah Brian you said Veach was good I got a quick one here I am lucky enough to play with one of the Hughes boys last last summer and so we're plan and you know number one draft pick and they said okay we're going to have some good times out there are strategic we'll see what he's got he's a lefty and I was with my buddy Matt he's a lefty and so play a few holes to it's got a sixty five footer on the second hole and I'm thinking let's see what this guy's got it's impossible but he said and I got it no problem I mean he's you know he's probably about a twenty five twenty handicap he is set in an ideal all right you're done no problem for those these competitive guys man they pick it up quick B. C. I. U. I. I think Jordan mentioned you had a chance with Maddox that would intimidate me there and I don't know what it was about that guy he just had that look on his face that he knows something that you don't know you know they were talking about the nurture the kid today in the event I'd be that way with Maddox he just was such a cerebral guy it's almost like he knows something that you don't know how was medics on the on the the the greenback I don't know about cerebral but just to look he gave me a just a look when I get on it you know this stuff besides my tea you know when you said something like that he gave me the stare down like ideas violated number something you know it's something unbelievable that he would just stare you down in there what you would tell you to go back a step back a little bit I'm like oh yeah that's right I'm dealing with this guy who is cooking bring it you know when he could bring if he could play you could flat out play does a lot of compliments on it is that kind of like the B. C.'s there now might not like we are down I mean you and the best thing about BC is don't let him rub me the wrong way he's actually a really nice guy that number or yeah get past the brown county at all if you if you guys ever worked you know even a little bit with some of these guys you know for tips or whatever you guys have any experience like that last year Manson and the Manson the big lefty it's a seven and two hundred and fifteen twenty yards and he's wants to know why you know I can't is driver straight but they had it so far and and they're pretty tech he's pretty talented there's others you know there's other guys that come in and have B. C. you've probably seen a few and Mike I have the word with a debate doesn't get rocks group who are yeah it's going through all that a good word but golf ball is one good thing is no matter what they do everyone I've played golf because you're traveling on the road whether the sport athletes entertainers they come in because we have something Mike Jordan I have something that they will never possess probably.

"I could be a hall of fame I think when I had two hundred and ninety nine wind that I had three hundred well I mean you know look I think you get to a stage in your career if if you're a person that is truly in the conversation as a potential hall of Famer you know naturally the lack the twilight of your career so to speak whether that's the last couple of years the last year I think you start to think about it and you start to kind of debate in your own mind the conversation and whether or not you're worthy of that conversation and and certainly for me you know my last year or two in New York I knew I knew I was part of the conversation I guess even earlier than that you know when I got the two hundred fifty wins I I knew if I got the three hundred wins I'm not saying it's case closed but you know there aren't any three hundred game winners and are in the hall of fame so I mean I I at least as an individual had kind of that that achievement out there so to speak that would really solidify my resume but I think even at that point you start you know you maybe start to entertain the conversation in your mind because people start are starting to ask you about it but I don't know for me I know for me personally I never you know I never really took it for granted so to speak until I won my three hundred game and then you know like I said it's kind of like all right well you won three games and nobody has ever done that is not in the hall of fame but at the same time you're still plans so you don't allow yourself to the think that way too much you know Tom as you look back on your career right now and there's there's a lot to get into it with you I'm curious you know what transpired between that ninety ninety one season right because you know you get called up your twenty one year old with the Atlanta Braves you don't have initial success you know it it you know it's it's three and a half years in which you know you're some success and you know you want seven seventeen one year in nineteen eighty eight ninety one you go twenty eleven two point five five ERA after a year in in ninety or what you want ten and twelve what happened between ninety and ninety one for you as a pitcher and the evolution of Tom Glavin to where then you obviously went off a dominant run I think you know that period between my first full year in the big leagues in eighty eight and then going into the ninety one see that was kind of it was a couple of things you know what I when I finished my first full year the big lake I lost seventeen games you know it was there was tripping for evidence to be number one the brave must think a lot of me if they allowed me to go out there to lose seventeen games but secondly and and that that sounds funny but it's true I get it there yeah this stuff they didn't make much of me they were gonna let me go out there and do that right they were sent me down sure but they they thought enough of me that okay this kid can handle it mentally he's gonna grow always going to get better and I did but I went home that winter and and it was obvious to me the one I had when I had my a game I want and I didn't I didn't want that have so much of it centered around fastball command so that went there I went home and my sole purpose that whole winter was fast ball command I how I wanted to learn how to from my fastballs for strikes more frequently so I could pitch ahead in the count more so I did that and I had a good year the next year I came back my second year I went fourteen and eight or something like that I had a good year now the third year nineteen ninety it was kind of a setback because now again when I had my a game I was good my fastball command was better for sure but my secondary pitches were very iffy and if I if I was missing something on a given day it was hard for me to survive going into nineteen ninety one spring training that was when I really really got comfortable with my change up and got it to the point where any count any situation I had confidence to throw it and that really took me to that next level in ninety one where I won twenty games I want to die on the word and the reason it did was it because now I I had that hitch that I really could rely on at any point in time so if I went out there on a given day and I didn't have good fastball command I could survive with my changeup you know if I had good command of my fastball but I didn't I had spotty command of my changeup I still had a pitch I could survive with so I think the big thing was you know solidifying that change up so to speak in terms of my repertoire gave me the confidence and the ability to go out there and win games are quite honestly I I would not have won in nineteen ninety or nineteen eighty eight I you know I learned how to win games when I had my B. stuff and sometimes my C. stuff where is prior to that I had no shot of one of those games you know Tom I you know what was it for you the experience being in a room you know with Maddux Smoltz I mean you think about the arsenal that the Atlanta Braves had you know and you know just I mean dynamic hall of fame pitchers what was it like for you being a part of that group down in Atlanta you know it wasn't caught up on a minute and I think you it's the kind of thing that obviously when you look back at it you appreciate it probably a little bit more and again only because it's hard to truly appreciated when you're still playing and you're going through it I mean we knew what we had was special it was special for a couple reasons number one obviously what we brought to the team as a trio and as as the rotation but number two the the camaraderie and a friendship that we had off the field that was just a special I mean we had we had so much fun away from the ball park going to you know playing golf and doing all the things that we did to get away from baseball so that was a really big part of it but but again you know what I've always said it pitching being a starting pitcher they can be the greatest job or it can be the worst job you know when you're pitching well and you're sitting there four nights a week watching games it's great when you're not you you know you don't have the luxury of having a bad game and go back out the next day and try to do something about it so it made those days on the bench a lot more fun because you're going to the ballpark you know two of those other four nights in your watch and manage your small stature so I was you know it was something to look forward to an end you know we look weak we learned a ton from each other we relied on each other a lot you know as much as you know Leo Mazzone help me during those years it was also great haven't Greg and John as another set of eyes that knew me so well knew my mechanics knew everything I was doing so if I was struggling with something and yeah I couldn't quite figure something out I could say Hey you know watch me if you see that there C. B. C. that you know they get that feedback of you know what I don't see that you're not so it's okay Jack I can I can eliminate that from from whatever it is and I'm trying to fix so you know having those guys around was so much so much fun and so special and you know we're lucky because if you look at you know you look at that in today's game there's no way economically a team can keep three guys like that together for for ten years like we were able to do when I land at that point in time so you know just for so many reasons it was it was a special time and we were you know certainly fortunate to be together going through it yeah I mean it was it was fun slash devastating to watch you guys depending on what's yeah what's Jersey you're wearing it was great it was heartbreaking it was agonizing it was awesome it was all those things Tom Glavin is our mystery guest today and you know Tom I I'll be honest I've I've I've spent a lot of time defending the players today over this MLB proposal you know I think that the players are are taking a bad rap here in my opinion you know I I I'm sympathetic to them I feel like they're taking on a hundred percent of the risk here if we do get baseball back up and going this latest proposal seems kind of kind of crazy to be that all of a sudden we start traveling all over the place and playing in our home ballparks that away ballparks and staying in hotels and all of that stuff I you know for the for the person out there who thinks that the player is being inflexible here and that the players only prioritizing the money and and and that the player looks bad what you have to say to them I mean I think it's I don't you know yeah I don't I don't know it on a just matter of fact I just saw something on on the TV before I was coming out with you guys about you know baseball talking now about a eighty two games or eighty or eighty two game schedule open on July fourth and you know potentially traveling and doing all that stuff so you know I don't know a ton about what's out there today but I can say from a player standpoint you know what I think when people start you know criticizing the players for being selfish or mentioning money or any of that stuff I think it's unfair you know because at the end of the day you know money money has nothing to do with the fact that a lot of these guys are husbands and fathers and they don't want to risk the health of their family anymore than anybody else does and you know I don't blame players for having concerns you know and I don't blame the owners.

"Our number three we go around the NBA the law night of action in the association will also do an NFL bounce a lot of free agency talked there and we'll go off the radar again a news report you may have missed Charles Barkley responding to dream on green and only Charles Barkley fashion but before we get the top five choose zero scrolling through my timeline and apparently Jackson state remember Jackson state had the got snacks the I. team manager who came in to launch the three the last time he was on there and made a basket became a viral and national sensation I'm assuming this is the SWAC tournament and Jackson state has a large lead in apparently fell Hey we're gonna get snacks back in the game and I think **** was supposed to just dribble out the clock so that's basically dribbles along the like around the right three point line and launches a and I'm trying to describe this the best way that I can't first of all he pushes off on a guy when he gets the ball shows this guy basically out of bounds like no and then he takes a running launched three are over about a six foot nine guy are predictably the shot comes out about five foot short and the other team goes the other way and I guess the other team was not really feeling it they played a little bit more defense on snacks then what happened the last time he was out there but it is still a viral sensation we always have fun on Tuesday we do top five Tuesday today we were talking about free agency we just said you know what we're gonna do our five favorite free agent signings of all time so number five Andrew general number five for your top free agents sign number five I do it Howard Dwight Howard interesting that you would have Dwight Howard on their number five for me was Reggie white going to the Packers and again I'm not just doing the the ones that I love to wrote it would be Chris bosh going to the heat jawan Howard not going to the heat you know there would be stuff like that so I didn't want to just go along those lines I wanted to give you my five favorite some of the more impactful ones as well jab at number four on your list number four I had PJ Tucker when he signed with the rockets and this is back in the summer they also got Chris Paul who may or may not show up on my list as well PJ's been such an integral part of what the rockets have done in the culture that they tried to build during Chris Paul's first season there and look at his shoe game enough warrants a spot on the top five here's what I'll say about PJ Tucker he is the perfect complement to that team you get peak PJ Tucker because he's a guy that you're not drawing plays for he's not an ego guy he's not begging for the ball he does his job he'll rebound he'll set screens and then he knocks down a lot of clutch shots in the year that they should have gone to the NBA finals what I like those first two games I don't think Houston minutes missed a jump shot what everything every time they have an open jumper against the warriors the ball when in the problem was they used them all up in games one through five of them were Chris Paul's hamstring exploded are they could nobody can make a shot down the stretch but Tucker is a perfect fit for that he's a guy that you know reminds me a little bit of Mario Elie when Ellie was on those teams are going to they were different positions but Ellie always seem to knock down that little push button jump shot that we have from the outside he always withdraw charge you would always grab a rebound you know you always come up with a big pop up blocker and a sister something like that and it seems like Tucker is that guys Tucker really beloved in Houston he's arguably outside of the star guys he's the most beloved rocket player Miami gets the same thing were you Donna's Haslem hassles in years seventeen I believe and he's already said this is going to be his last season in the NBA he hasn't played significant minutes probably since the second year of lebron maybe play you know maybe the entire time or brown was there he was playing significant tight minutes but you're talking about five years ago he literally now only comes in when it's like a forty point game and he just sits on the end of the bench to collect a paycheck what is Mr Miami's Mr three oh five in the U. Donna thousands one of those one of those guys that you know it reminds me of PJ Tucker although he doesn't have quite the same skill set the PJ Tucker did but I'll tell you two thousand six NBA finals the heat don't win if you don is as I'm not on that team the defense that he played on Dirk Nowitzki are the rebounding that he provided next to Shaquille o'neil and Alonzo mourning are you Dennis has them forever cemented himself as a Miami legend doing that number four for me favorite free agent signings go all the way back to the the our off season of nineteen ninety three the old professor himself Greg Maddux going to the Atlanta Braves mind you at that time the Braves had a young pitcher by the name of Tom Glavin they had a young stud by the name of John Smoltz already in the rotation if I'm not mistaken Steve Avery was in the rotation is still playing some good ball but Greg Maddux took them from pretty close you know it lost a couple of World Series so finally we're going to get over the hump they may have won it in nineteen ninety four I didn't get that chance is the strike shortened it I don't want to expose fans say Hey we were going to win it with Larry Walker it with Randy Johnson and guys like that but then in ninety five Maddux Smoltz Glavin they finally get their World Series let's be honest had the Braves that gap the way the ninety six World Series for the Yankees they may go down as the team of the nineties are but Greg Maddox was a huge reason why you could argue in our generation and I'm talking about eighties nineties two Oct two thousand the he's the greatest pitcher of our generation Maddox was masterful three hundred and sixty some odd wins like that number will never be touched again by any active player who have number three on your list of favorite free agent signings number three I've got Andy Pettitte back when he signed with the Astros I want to say two thousand to him and Roger Clemens sort of came in a package deal and I'm guessing just by me mentioning the rockets name that you people probably know who's number two on the list but Andy Pettitte came in he was part of a team that went to a World Series this is back when I was in like third fourth fifth grade ands he didn't revitalize baseball in Houston but he was one of those marquee names like I thought mention with white Howard where we didn't get a whole lot of those so when he's like you know what I live in deer park which is a neighborhood right outside Houston I'm coming home it was a huge deal down here that one hurt to any better it's one of my favorite Yankees of all time that I always like the Yankees that were home grown guys guys that would come up through the minors or somebody that we trade for that was in the minors and then the the venture we make it to the big leagues that's why the those teams are granted they won a lot but why I really enjoyed those Yankee teams it was Pat it it was pasada it was Jeter it was Bernie Williams eventually was Alfonso Soriano who I think they are traded for but he came up through the minors they paid some money for Tino Martinez they they paid some money for Paul o'neill you know they had Boggs and Charlie Hayes and then eventually that turned into Scott Brosius who who is basically a cast off before he came to New York but that's what made those teams so much fun and so enjoyable Orlando Hernandez L. do que they have brought him over as a Cuban defector but when Pettit laughed that hurt Clemens I didn't give a damn about here he was a red Sox who came over to New York at via Toronto and everywhere else but when Pettit left that kind of signified Hey this is the end of the dynasty as we know what the Yankees quite frankly have never been the same number three for me this guy should be in the hall of fame but it's Barry Bonds going to the San Francisco Giants you want to talk about changing the trajectory of a franchise really two franchises bonds in Bosnia ultimately leaving Pittsburgh took the pirates from a perennial team that was right there at the end remember they lose on the sid bream slide I believe was nineteen ninety well ninety two they lost at ninety one and then they lose again in ninety two on the Francisco Cabrera hit that sid bream slides and wins but when bonds leave that was the end of those Pittsburgh teams and then all of a sudden he gets to San Francisco and yes the steroids were most likely involved but he turned himself from skinny M.

P. the holy cow is the greatest home run hitter of all time Barry bonds going to the San Francisco Giants was a huge huge deal we all bonds guy by any chance not really I didn't see my first memories of bonds are him the launching a bunch of home runs with the juiced up head and my parents at the time were pretty adamant that he was on on the juice and they let me know that he was cheating any any wires and you know there were a lot of guys that were and being a huge baseball guy and I graduated college in ninety eight tried to go to professional baseball and it didn't work out you know I didn't understand total hell of a lot more work in the sports talk radio than I did in to try to play professional sports and part of the problem and I always say this I was too good at the level that I played at not to sound cocky but I wasn't any I was in today I A. level and I probably should have played at a higher level of baseball so because of that I never really worked the way that I wanted to and I went to some camps and it didn't work out but remember baseball was dying in the mid nineties people were not watching baseball the way they were and they needed bonds and they needed the Clemens and they needed our kids say co and they need to acquire they needed Sosa and all these guys to go out and hit a Brazilian home runs I didn't care that bonds was allegedly cheating I really didn't I don't know there are a lot of people at that time they did until it started coming out and then again everybody like stacks sanctimonious and everybody likes to be holier than now that bond always a cheater yeah he was but say what you want he was a good it really it really got it done and he was an MVP multiple times before they head swelled up and you can clearly tell that he was enhanced a little bit more than he was before welcome back to this thing in Washington and it kind of boggles my mind and I'm seeing some of the reports now the announcement according to a person involved is expected to target events such as sporting and entertainment gatherings while offering exceptions to things like retail school our stores schools will not be affected by the district will expect to review things like sporting events that may draw significant crowds this is why I keep talking about and this is in regard to Jay Inslee the Washington state governor who is set to announce on Wednesday prohibition on community gatherings of two hundred fifty or more people why do you target a sporting event but not a shopping mall why do you target a sporting event and not kids in school why do you target a sporting event and potentially not like the pike street fleet or pike street market down there which is the iconic spot in Seattle you see people throwing the fish and catching the fish why don't you close all of them this is why I keep saying like sports is getting interjected into something that it's almost done it seems like it's becoming vilified the people gathered to watch sports why is that happening when everything else is not happening for me and I've even said this to places and I'm lucky in my studio here in Atlanta it's just me errors in a studio in Houston a and I'm assuming at this time of the night it's just you might hear an individual coming a little bit Patrick Creighton coming in so you don't have a twenty human contact you.
