right football look while he he blew the unit G. say SO saria Longoria what's the world's largest outdoor cocktail party yes do you know what it is though no I'm Chuck do you know what it is the largest the world's largest outdoor like where it is or what it is exactly where what anything I think it's football I'm pretty sure it's down a forest somewhere yeah it's the Georgia Florida game in Jacksonville so it's the it's been dubbed the school doesn't like the schools don't like us calling it the world's largest outdoor cocktail party but K. that's basically what it is I've been number of I've been a number of times it's it's a fun time I am too old to do it now and and do it like I did back in my twenties but it's an experience the the most shocking thing the first time I went down there and I made this I. me did I do not mean this misogynistic we get all that green I'm looking at you but the women were so attractive that game that an average girl caught your eye it's that that's never been the way a nose like was I Hocker Hocker for what what it is that's how anyway that that does that does that cough misogynistic it was like just did like to think that's just what happens when you're at games like that but it and the guys to maybe the guys were good looking too but it was like this I've never seen a bigger collection of attractive people in my life which made me sing fatter and uglier than ever but the problem is that you know fans true fans of both the Georgia and Florida some anyway don't like the fact that it's held every year to neutral site still Georgia never gets to play Florida at home in Sanford stadium the Gators never get the host Georgia in the swamp in Gainesville you know what I'm saying so what is it that Y. yeah what it is we just been tradition I don't know because it's a it's a storied rivalry it's an S. tradition but the fact that as as a as a dobby Georgia fan I always felt like and every time I went there senior more Florida fans because it's in Florida thank you the games held in Florida and if you seem to own unfair to me are they who or what woods did does differ in the stadiums are the same stadium Jacksonville sort of neutral state but it's the same as what a Jaguars played but it's the same stadium every year same stadium every year unless there's a hurricane or some right yet traditionally always the same stadium but a you know I I became a bulldog fan in ninety six when I moved down here and went to the Georgia Florida game for number years after that and I always I mean it's a long drive it's a longer to go from Athens to Jacksonville then obviously from Gainesville Jacksonville and it seems like they're always more Florida fans just because it was Kreider right out and forget the fact that it seems like every time I went down there George lost and I you know just yet Saddam help like the party the night before was great but then when you lose like Matt so I've always been a proponent of let's do away with this let's I want to see the Florida Gators have to deal with the Georgia home crowd you know and I'm sure they're Gator fans that want to see George after deal with their their home crowd we found out today that the game has been extended in Jacksonville till twenty twenty three within a option to extend till twenty twenty five so at the very least early as twenty twenty four AS one we're gonna do away with this creation and I get I get I love tradition at cetera etcetera but I just don't I just don't like it my proposal actually still is having is from Jeff Schultz the F. former AJC calmest he proposed a rotating schedule three a rotating schedule one year Georgia host one your Florida host and then the third year you have the neutral side in Jacksonville any figure most college players are playing at least three years and then some go to the NFL so if you're a college player you'll get to play at home against Florida on the road against Florida and on the neutral so I think that's a great Jeff shelter tip my hat to you very a smarter man and I came up with that proposal I think that's great now I'm I bring this up this isn't a sports talk show it reminds me as we approach thanksgiving right Longoria okay gathering in the straight low to Chuck you guys all y'all y'all have in laws right yes yeah that's always been a topic a kind of a hot topic around the holidays because it's like what do we do for the holidays with the in laws like what we can do on thanksgiving what do we do Christmas he voted to Christmas day it's always a thing and I just realized maybe you all with in laws should should do the Georgia Florida thing and do a neutral site you know I I mean I back when I had in laws it was always like what we can do for thanksgiving you know I'm we go there we went there last year Christmas Eve will do this and and it's kind of like so maybe ever goes to Jax that take a neutral site to do that I wanted I want to talk about that we'll talk about the Georgia Florida game staying in Jacksonville but what do you do when it's the holidays and Christmas is coming and your parents want you at your place and her parents want you at her place how do you determine where you go give me some good stories about the in laws in holidays and how you come up with solutions for that maybe ever just because the Jacksonville

I am not in any way shape matter the affection of form. Yeah. I disliked from Russia comparing. Humans stocks not. It's just a teaching opportunity the TSA administrator David Picasso sqi is announced that they are going to hire fewer dogs with sharp ears pointy ears. He spoke at the Washington Examiner. Now it happens that dogs have high scores on health, odor detection, socialization and disposition, but they're going to be removed from the front lines because people find them intimidating. So instead they're gonna hire dogs that are hunting breeds with floppy ears like laboratory retriever labrador retrievers German short haired, pointers wired haired, pointers this, listen, golden retrievers, I am not comparing human beings to dogs. I am taking a learning and teaching opportunity known. It's an object lesson. So the response here is people are afraid of these dogs. Let's move them. Folks. Why not just say the dogs are not harming you. I understand the image. Some people have of German shepherds. I do they happen to be one of my favorite dogs. But it's an opportunity to say wait who's been bit who's been harmed by these dogs is they've been doing their job in this is there I could make plenty of fun of this. Because it's hilarious comes the same week that Peter saying don't let bowl stand next the BULLDOGS ever. Like at a football game. Okay. Let's go into the wild and go to Bowles who happened to be in the wild and say, don't you ever go get annoyed by coyotes and then step on it because that happens to be real world stuff? But we don't do real world stuff that much in the United States anymore. Man. I've I've done been audited fill in for rush. A bunch of times.

Bill Clinton, William Jefferson, slick willy Bill Clinton working. Yes. He was not removed from office, right and left us. No this.

Because can you imagine the instant blowing up of of a liberal cranial around the country when young people figure out that impeachment? Doesn't mean by exactly yeah. So. I'd like to see it too. As a matter of fact up. I mean, I'm not one for for kabuki theatre from politicians. But when it's out there, it's it's it's at their cost. Then I'm all in on that a good point. Jeff. Thank you very much for waiting. That's talking the show John from Amarillo, Texas. You are on the network with Todd Herman. Hi, john. Hi, how are you doing great? Oh, see I've been there. You wait.

Yeah. Todd. Todd. Please do. Oh, todd. You know, one thing. I don't understand everybody's complaining and talking about the government and the shutdown, and and Trump can't get one vote from the Democrats in order to build a wall it cetera. And, but I I think I heard Rush Limbaugh one day mentioned the nuclear option, but he did not get into too much about it. And my understanding is that Obama use it, and that's how we got Obama Care pass. Why can't Trump used a nuclear option? He don't need it Democrats if they put the nuclear option, the Republican senators. He can get whatever he'd get twenty five billion that way, if the if the Republicans are willing to go along with it. It's all over. Listen, if the Democrats, you know, they don't like it. They should have given the billionaires four in the first place and the stand your point, Don, thanks very much for the phone. Call in waiting I'll tell you because once the nuclear options done it's done and God forbid, we have a democrat congress under a democrat president with the nuclear option in place. They'd spend money right left. And they did a lot to pass a Bama care including starting in the Senate, which is unconstitutional, but I don't think they use that particular option.
