"You know what I mean? And it got to the point where Nick and I were like, okay, this is. Fun it, but it's kind of becoming repetitive. It's okay. How many times they show people we're on an airplane and how many times blog from a hotel room. So we started mixing in the idea of of having storyline elements in the show is well, but the way we we would blend it, it would be like for one scene, it would be a real life blog from Mia Knicks. And then a second later we're doing a bit. So people started like thinking what, which parts real, which parts fake they started by into this stuff. You know what I mean? And I, and as we went on the show kind of gotten a little more over the top, like we've literally had a who done it. We've had we've had, we've had Seifi elements of our show, which is really, really silly stuff that we find. Ultimately, the shows a comedy, I think. But we've also toyed with a lot of drama as well. Like we, we really liked to have people feel all types of different emotions. And I think as the show progressed, we we've had, we've created our own. Little platform, and now we've introduced various characters on the show. We have all of our friends on. It's really given us a place to show people who we are creatively and it's so fun because we put it out, you know, usually every Monday or Sunday in every single fan of ours who subscribed they all watch it at once together. So it's it's almost become like our own version of our Monday night, raw current, like every everybody watches together, they all gift. The thing together on Twitter and kind of like tag being the elite hash tag along and everybody watches along could it's really, it's been the biggest thing I would say in our career and it's so funny because now when everybody anybody sees us runs into us, it's the first thing they say is I love your show. It's never. I liked that match. You had last week or I love this. It's just I love your YouTube show. So we we more or less become more of YouTube stars and we have wrestlers. Now, this point. A huge international audience for the show. Thank God. And 'cause maybe he's got to eat. So well, man's gotta eat folks. But the point is is at the you can consume the YouTube content anywhere you live in saying, this is a great thing and the you have failed. The city was very classic, a thought, and yes is creative. Here's the thing about it fellas you know who you are and you want your audience and know that as well you, you got more than one vehicle to accomplish that if I don't understand this in the world of independent contractors, not saying that's the way to go or are not. It's just the way that it is. So you're, you're playing with the same rules. Everybody else is in that respect. But if you're an independent contractor, therefore you're basically at entrepreneur in this entertainment entity that we're in. Then in you don't use social media, then you're lazy and you're motivated, and you're not very bright. The thing about if I'm a lot of rest of listen to show whether you you like the young bucks or you don't. I don't care. I like them. I think the best tag team the business..

"I love that. I knew exactly what you're getting at yet. Yuck buddies and you got friends one to get booked. They wanted, they didn't pay day. Can you get us on a card? And so here's one way facilitating that for your pals. I love it and it's, it's definitely a shoe because man are we over budget. Twenty two -cause Cody. I think he's I put on the Owen account that it was a. It was a fifteen man. Battle Royal. So over the fifteen minutes right Right now. now like soon as we put the fifteen man up is like everybody started coming out of the woodwork. And you know what? A lot of these guys van deserving. So it's like, you know what? They do deserve a spot of this show, you know, making a twenty man battle right now the numbers at. This shows you guys got your your peers, your your, your, your your road, guys, everybody your your buddies to France. You got them in your in your head as well. Just thought about the thing I loved about this from ocean sister get-go, it isn't is not about the young bucks and Cody. It's about a lot of people doing along hard work and being onus card. And I think you guys have been remained very objective. This is this a hell of a cardis. They big time level card that if I wasn't going to be in Chicago, I was certainly be set in front of my TV and and watching this event on the fight after just it's too good to pass up. So congratulations on that deal. Thank you, pay. I have started checking out your YouTube channel and and I, you know, I I had not understand you're, you're you and I get this your program to maybe not my demo because I'm old dude of, but I as. Fan. Some of it considers themself of somewhat of a student of the game. I enjoy the process. I enjoy how you incorporate our is. It's like booking as all you're doing producing booking, booking his casting. So you done a hell, Josh, how how did that idea come about and how do you guys find time to do the damn thing? Man, it. Pecan pretty stressful, but men you don't. We started a YouTube channel years and years ago probably over a decade ago and it just didn't catch on. And I think it's men maybe three years ago. Now we, we were like manual what we should try to do another YouTube channel. Now that more people know us. So we started it and it just started as a just Matt and myself and not Kenny doing these short little bits just to try to make ourselves laugh, but it it really didn't catch on with our fans. And then I, I thought of an idea where man maybe we should start doing like a blog about our travels because that's kind of interesting. So we, we started out doing that and then it turned into pretty much what you see now which is storylines mixed with blogs. And everything between that wrestling and it's a, it's caught on and it man, it's helped us huge. It's helped us big time with a lot of things and the fans love it. Yeah, I feel like I feel like once the show started getting really popular, everything changed for us. 'cause at first everybody liked us as professional rest or you think of the young bucks you? Oh yeah. Those guys, I like they're matching fun, but once we started putting the show up and we, we took people basically on a tour of our personal lives and we introduce them to to our family members and our friends and our favorite restaurants and stuff like that. Now now they know us on a personal level on a deeper level, and now we're talking to a blog style. We're, we're just we're talking to them with with thoughts in our head, not some rehearse professional wrestling promo in front of a background, you know. And so they felt like they knew us almost like as the show grew, our meet and greet lines grew as well. And our merch numbers grew as well because now people they saw firsthand that they what they were exactly supporting..

"Don't get me wrong, but he'll never be that much better than he is right now. He's really, really good and Pentagon junior and he will have a hell of match. I think it'll be entertaining and creative innovative. So that's all good stuff. And then of course, Mari shirl who I get taken to task by the Twitter verse because I don't Butch frigging name. I don't mean to do it. I love his work. He's another guy. He's another gun load to hire, but he and Okada God voice. That's a good book you now that's good stuff right there because their styles are different. They're, they're measurable. If you know what I'm saying. You wouldn't see new Japan because they don't usually put the heavyweights versus the junior heavyweight. So that's exactly why we we booked at. Yeah. And then and then going back to the Pentagon in omega match. We we once had a six man tag where they had a small exchange in the entire building was on their feet. So we knew that that was definitely something that people would want. I just feel like Pentagon he, he's, he's one of these just rare wrestlers where he's got this charisma and he just he walked to the ring and everybody's watching every single breath. He takes like he just knows how to capture the room and and as you and like you just mentioned Kenny. Just what, what a guy like Nick and I have known for ten years when everybody now knows that he was he's one of the best, but but really the last couple years, he's he's shown everybody just how good he is. And and we, I mean, we've watched firsthand. We've been ringside for every one of his big matches, and I can't wait to see what kind of a match you can put on. With with Pentecost. It's such a different style, so it'll be different than what we're used to seeing with him in new Japan. I think these pens, it's such a different type of wrestler, so I'm really, really excited about that in mardi in Okada. Marty is is such a clever wrestler is twenty. 'cause he's a little guy. He's easy. He's he's probably even smaller than us, but you would never think gives way he carries himself. He, he's larger than life. He's such a character. He's so smart in the ring. So I'm really excited to see what he hasn't minding his Okada. I'm excited you guys are going to be on the fight out because the folks that don't know it's FIT is a free app. If you have WI fi and a smart device, you're in the game. That's all you need. And so I would highly recommend downloading for free, the fight up and and checking out all the activities that was another big Git fellas for you for you guys. Was that also or. Threatened by the three of you? Yeah, Yep, for sure. Could we we, we wanted to make the event available for as many eyeballs as possible. So in a they've done a lot of work with a lot of the the independent groups around the world, and it's always from great view. So we knew for sure we had to get them on board. So we're happy about that. They always do very good stop, and and we've known Mike Weber from back in our days, opinions going TNA and he's kind of our contact with fight. They're just very reliable and then and I know in this day and age like man, so many times there's been streaming problems different companies and and we knew that fight very reliable. So we wanted them part of our team absolutely much good dude. I work with Mike at WCW Nonni for a long time. He's he's good an eye for a year when they first launched it thing I was, you know, helping them with social media as far as endorsing promoting things of that nature. So I'm a big user of the fight up the folks. If you get a chance, you can't be in Chicago. You don't already have a ticket you. You're not gonna be left out. Watch it a comfort of your own home. Wash on your phone, watched it on your tablet. All you need us WI fi and a smart device, and you're in the game, and I can encourage doing more, hey, I got a kick out of your over budget, battle Royal term..

"Combo meal told me, I said, Bill was all these Mark questions when us twenty two years old in the business still what smart. I wasn't smart enough to the business until walk into the ring the first match refereed. So how might all in this? She she got in in the d thin. Sufi can't swim. Get yourself out, you know. Yeah, and and but I, I, I see an this week this yesterday. I called a Bucci Tana ha. She's she one final would jaw, and we did. We did all the the nut cutting matches the semis and everything would six shows in two days. So is really an, of course, Bucci and tone Ohashi was one, Matt was one one match met at the whole hour for for television. It was really the whole thing was great, but I see you guys still going to be the bucks and KOTA Bucci versus mysterious thin IX and Bandido. Correct. Did you guys. Sorry. Did you guys ever when you're young putz you're still young. You know, I got socks over nudes. Did you think everything how cool it would beater Russell with very mysterious. Oh my goodness. Oh, he's he's probably my favorite high flyer of all time. So we've we've had the opportunity to be in the rate with him quite a few times now. So every time we get to do so man, it's it really. It's a, it's it's a Mark out moment. For myself. I know Matt was a huge fans world. All you talk about timeless wrestlers in Iran, Syria was number one on the list that like I was watching him and Okada go out with a couple of exchanges. They had over GYN finals and Tokyo, Buddha, Khan, and man I was blown away. I'm like, this guy just never age. He bring boarding up on the ropes and just he just looks amazing just as quick as ever so I can't wait to wrestle with with him and and actually can't wait to to watch on the apron when him in and Cody Bucci do some type of work together to, you know, that's going to happen. And I feel like that was one of the big selling points for us as as bookers was was when we looked at six families. And can you imagine an exchange between those two like I've just gonna watch on. I hope I don't forget that I'm in the match when they go. And then another thing we'd be mentioned, Phoenix who I, I rank right up there with, like I look at Raimo Syria younger and his career, and I see cenex in them like crazy. So I know that that's going to be one of his inspirations in wrestling. He's so so good. I've been watching a lot of this stuff lately on impact, and I'm just blown away and and then Bandidos and other guy that a lot of people don't. No, he's he's really had a breakout year this year. He's done a lot of cool stuff at PWG Nikolai have. I don't think we've ever met the guy and that we needed a third guy in that match in one day, Nick and I were driving to town and we just pulled up YouTube and we started looking up just a lot of the high flying Lucci Norris we knew we wanted someone for Mexico to be in that match. And it was down to like four or five guys. We, we've, we flipped on Bandido and we were blown away. We couldn't believe it. Like, I think within the second or third video we watched MS, we'd knew we were like, okay, that's our guy. And we've never, we've never met the guy and he's in our made event. It's a big chance for him. So I, I'm really, really looking forward to from for this magic, it's going to blow on people away a great card since I'm a big hangman page fan. I think he's got a huge upside. If I had a territory hit me. One of the young dudes I'd try to hire, I just got a big upside. Omega, you know, as pretty extrordinary he's in his, he's in his element right now. He's probably as good. He unshared rocky, get better..

"And, and I think at this point now, like all we have to do is hit a home run as as as easy as that, that's all. Should we run now, but and I think we will. I'm pretty confident with it to, you know, Conrad in invited me to be a part of the podcasts component own Sunday and and come up on Saturday cetera. Guys, I, I got family and that Saturday September. I is the season opener for the Sooners and I said, I got my kids and my grandkids. I got from for us in our little family, especially since my wife is has been gone. We really depend on those family outings those opportunities to get together in this season opener. So I so So I I didn't didn't know know what what the. the the because of television. You don't know what time the game is going to start 'til you know, later on. So I found out, you know, recently that the game's going to start at eleven AM central, which means it'll be over by around two thirty or three lay at the latest, right? So I started checking flights, okay, Oklahoma City Chicago's nonstop. So I wanna I wanna take a flight from Oklahoma City after I want my family and I, I have my house that grandpa and I want to take a flight to Chicago because I want to sit in the crowd are found a seat somewhere and watched wrestling and newness so so I'm making a commitment as as somebody that I, you know, I from my wear and tear my fat, oh body, you know, I I could be home much air in my lazy boy, watching more football need more barbecue drinking more beer. So now. Homerun, man. So I'm gonna. I'm gonna come up there for that and and joy wash, Josh work, and and do some stuff a Conrad on Sunday. So I'm excited about that trip. I really am and I'm glad that kick off time worked out as it. Did you guys know of and look, you can't say, I get it. I understand. Do you have you have conclusive feeling on what is going to close the show? What's going to go on after intermission. So far we, we feel like we do, but you just never know. We might change something last minute because we've, we've actually been changing a couple things just little details, but a man, it's always interesting to to see who we you put on lash for big show, and you know, it's been actually pretty difficult to to do that because a lot of the guys are kinda nervous. Like we've, we've pulled certain guys like, hey, we want you to be in the main event and they've actually said, no, wait a minute. We, we need you and they're like, well. There's a lot of pressure on, so we might just putting ourselves in that slot, but I don't think it's it's a one hundred percent just yet. Right it if it's a lot of political stuff too. It's like this card is really hard to put together because of the the different e. os and the different companies that don't wanna work with each other. And like, so we, this is like, probably. Would you say Nick our tenth or twelfth version of the show? Yeah, for sure. It's even very, and then another another thing is the g. one tournament just ended in in new Japan, which is the most grueling tour of of the year for those guys. A lot of those guys are banged up. So a lot of those guys didn't want to be in singles matches and I, it was very, very difficult. And it was funny because when we first started booking this thing, someone asks the, hey, are you guys going to be in the main event young bucks? And we said, absolutely not. It's our show. We don't want to be in the main event, but it's come to a point now where it's like, well, who the hell else is going to be in the main event. I have to be. As of right now and things could change. It looks like we're going to be doing the the dream six man tag to close the show. But I mean, man as as much as this things change, who knows we might, we might show up on the Denver first and having a different card. That's why the most powerful weapon in wrestling is the eraser..

"And I remember Cody was on Twitter talking to Dave Meltzer about like some type of bet, and someone asked Dave Meltzer if. If a ring of honor could put ten thousand seat or still up at ten thousand Rena I should say. And he said, no, and Cody capital pretty mad about it. Three upset. Actually. He tweeted back saying, actually, I think we could and it pretty much snowball from there and he pretty much said what you don't Matt Nick. I think what's it's time to to do something crazy and what's Twitter, our money where our mouths are and let's try it. And that was pretty much the back story to how it began. Yup. And then I'll add to that a little bit. Even like Nick said, we, we've been kicking around the idea when he says that we really were just kinda just Chit chatting on on the on the tour buses or or on the long rides on flights. And we were saying, you think we can ever fill up a big arena because like at the time we were doing record business for our wage and and I wanna say it was their their best year, like even twenty six teams their best year. And then we'd be beat that and then we did twenty seventeen in our on. You know, now we're on peak doing even better business. So we we, we were doing, these shows you're killing. And then finally Cody had the eighties, like, why don't? Why don't we just we do it. The three of us only though, like what if we individually do that, you think that's something you know people can get behind. And that's what I knew that he had something because now we're selling more than just just a wrestling show. Now, now we're selling them a movement and we're selling them a feeling like, listen, we're just three guys and we're going to put up our money and we're gonna. We're gonna do this big show and we're being. Damn bishops by saying, we want to fill up a ten thousand seat arena. And I remember the chatter when we first talked about the idea and I remember I wanna say it was fifty fifty, fifty percent of the people that we could do it, and those percent Riveria loud about it. And and and I'm not gonna live. And I said, they didn't get my head because you know, it scared me. I'm like, are they right? You know. But at the same time, the other fifty were rooting for us. It was like it was one of those ideas. It was like, man, we could really fail here big time and look really stupid, or we can put all of our chips in as in. That's what we call this show all in. We're going to go all in on this and and we can succeed and we could live forever. And so so the idea was lets up to sell these these people, these fans arrested in other wrestling show. Because right now, in my opinion, there's the best wrestling in the world cross the board from every promotion, right? Like WBZ's probably got the most loaded Rosser they've ever had. You can watch new Japan. It's got the best shows like there's great wrestling everywhere. So we can't just sell him another. Great wrestling show because great wrestling easy to find out days. Let's let's sell them more than that. And I think that's what we did. We sold them feeling a movement. You wanna be part of history. Do you want to help three regular dies, fill up a ten thousand seat arena. We'll come join us in this movement. Let's do this together and I think what we put tickets up and they sold out in thirty minutes that that was proof that that they bought in on it. They bought the idea of of, let's make history, not just, hey, let's see a really cool show because it will be a really cool show. I know because we format it and thing, and it's going to be awesome. But I hope it's more than just a wrestling show. I hope this is something that you can talk about with with your grandkids and say, I was there in Chicago for for for all in for the first one, at least we ever do more who knows. But I was there for for the original all in and it was a special weekend and it was it was roughly Woodstock, that's what we wanted to do..

"And I want to give kids a great life and and yeah, the the answer your questions, like, I don't know, I guess where, what are we going to do our contracts up in four months? It's like it's it's getting down to the the eleventh hour almost now where we kind of have to make a decision. You know, we're gonna stay put. We're going to go. Somewhere else. We're going to go back to just being independent guys and I, I don't know that the best the best thing is we're in a great spot right now, and I feel like we can't really make a bad decision because we're whatever we do right now. We're in one of those rare instances in someone's career, whatever we do right now if works. So I think we're gonna make the right decision no matter what ends up being. Agree with you that you are grace fought what promotion, an existing promotion, a new promotion, wherever it may be wouldn't want the best tag team the business on the roster. It's pretty simple to me. I I, I haven't to bring a lot of guys into WW beckon the day. She got probably know, and you know you, you look at quality, human beings, family men guys are not going to bring a ton of bad habits and baggage into the locker room. The locker rooms got it's hard enough just doing what she fell is due to travel issues outlined. Then you then you gotta come to a safe haven, a safe room in that locker room cannot be full of controversy and guys kissing a moaning about a payoff or a finish or or whatever it may be. You won't some be, you need some support there. We all need it. So I'm I think, gosh, you're not gonna make any bad decision there to make. I was going to make the point about you're selling starting in at wrestle kingdom. Now you guys c met, you had the back ride the back of situ. Nation met and then told there was your common thread for these matches. Yep, until the change to the Nick got hurt later on. So now you're both wounded young bucks, the bucks the bucks are hurting in if I give a damn about the young buffs I really care that they're that they're in jeopardy. I really want this to be, oh, my heroes to this situation to be eased and you guys carry that 'cause you know, barn, Aetna, Josh, for an it, and I'd always mashes in this kept getting more Fisher, get more clear and there's a theme to it. And I told, gosh, this this day it for an announcer or so in my role over the years, you know who the great workers are, not because you read it on a pole or the Twitter thing was positive, or somebody have more hit some Facebook because when I sat down to call their match, it became so easy to add the lyric to your music. And because you had a comedy nominators and you had a flow. Oh, in and you had a direction clearly established. It major matches so much more compelling and more fun to call. And so therefore you can get into it more. You can sell it more. You can do. I can help re. I can help relate to your pain and agony. 'cause I know somewhere down the road, there's gonna be one hell of a comeback, and and we we saw that some of this to the moon. So I think that whole thing is is great for you. Guys could look. You're never going to be the the Blackjacks you're not six seventy. I don't think you hit a growing spur bores her done. We're done. You ain't going to be six, three, so. Well, that's cool. I just think it's great. I think it is such a great job. I want to know one thing is how did the idea for all income about in the sense that was that a off the cuff remark somebody made or we could do that, or is it a car trip or a train ride or on the airplane? How did the idea come about and who were the individuals there in that original little inner circle that were talking about this thing in a serious manner? Nick again, it, it always was pretty much the three of us and the three of us. I mean by Matt myself and Cody Rhodes, and you know, we, we kicked around the idea for men a good six months or so to see if we could do something like that..

"So Matt and I would like, oh, man, but shelling in six minutes is tough. I just wanna get some cool moves into try to impress the audience so to speak, you know. But when we started progressing and getting a higher spot in the card, we started giving more time. So then we felt like, okay, we can use this to our ability to to sell more. And I feel like now we we have more time and it gives us the chance to do that. I don't know if Matt wants to add to that or. Yeah, I, we just we weren't giving really the the platform to have those those types of matches. And we have in having those matches actually for years. And it's just nobody's really seen them, you know? So. So to get a platform like like new Japan pro wrestling and put them to say, hey, tonight, you know, we're giving you twenty minutes since like, oh, wow, like we actually have time to to let everything sink in and try to get some emotion out of this and and and also for Nick and I, it's like we are constantly trying to evolve in and we, we want to show that, you know, we're not just one dimensional wrestlers like we have all sorts of different years we can change. And and I think it's a challenge source of like, you know, everybody knows that we can have this silent match, like the car crash matches. We, we'd had him for years, you know, for years and I on the independence making a worthy opening match and like Nixon, they would tell it's just open the show the show on fire. And sometimes you have to have those six ten minute quick car crash spot fest matches. And we got really, really good at them, became a point in our career where we just wanted more and you're like, you know, I, I just wanna. I'm getting bored of this and and just like anybody else like sometimes even. Actors like, listen, I, I'm really good at comedies, but I can also do a little bit of drum, you know, we, we, we didn't want to. We didn't pigeonhole ourselves for our entire career, so it was it was fun that we got the chance to do it on a on a lie, large platform like new Japan and sometimes too, and we just wanted to show everybody, hey, man, we, we got more in our in our game and and it's been really fun because it's been a challenge for us to just like you said, slow it down and and let things register. And I think I think because of that, like you said, like people love to have sympathy for for a good white neat baby facing no cells how to sell its old to wrestling. And we've taken the the elements of old school wrestling. We've dressed it up with with with modern style like us, and it seems like it's timeless. It's still works..

I love the entrepreneurial spirit and reminds me back when I first got in wrestling where I've made a vendor Bill watts, bring a a top guy in oftentimes worked with him and that top guy would help watch book their program. They were aunt for nurse. They were independent contractors, same thing we all are today, and also it's so that's the as a change. But the point is, have you fell as always been this entrepreneurial in spirit? Did you knew all along that we could build a bigger brand than just wrestling. This is Nikki thinking. Yeah, it man. It feels like we've had this wave for men almost the whole time we've been in wrestling which is supposed to fifteen years now. It's funny. Cody actually says we're the the most old school roughly is that he'd knows which is which is funny coming from him because he's seen a run of old school rustler's come and go, you know. So yeah, we, we really kicked into a lot of that probably more so in the last I don't know five years or. So. Would you say about? Yeah, like I feel like we've always had and the idea of being these business guys, but like at first nobody bopped his stuff. So I don't know how successful we were at first. I remember when we started our own our own independent company, you know, back in two thousand four and I remember having the iron on press shirts and we're trying to sell these things. And at the time you know, we thought we were doing big business. We'd probably selling five or ten t shirts this show, but like I, it's always been something in our blood. Like we, we, I've ever even having the little Polaroid's back then and and I guess that back back then that was like the wrestlers guy that you had to have an eight by ten and you had to have some sort of piece of merchandise. So at the time we started small, but we always knew like I can't just rely on my my payday the what's going to be in the envelope at the end of the night, like I got to try to make more. I gotta try to make extra. So even when we were really young and I, I'm talking Nikolas probably. What were you at the age? Fourteen or fifteen. When we started dating. And I'm the, I'm the older brother. So I started I was I'm four years older, so he's fourteen I was about eighteen. But I mean, we're just kids and we started our own independent wrestling company and and we're, we're, we have a small little niche audience in our in our town, and we're selling tickets and we're and we're, we're selling pieces of virtue die. So yeah, I think that's your question. Like I think we've always kind of had it in our blood, not until we got really popular. Did we actually find any success in it? But I, but yeah, it's always been something that we've, we've strived to be. I admire entrepreneurial event. Here's the thing and I think it's indicative to how you guys work in the ring bell to bell. There's nothing lazy about your presentation. There's nothing unaggressive it's it's not passive is not phone down thing in you guys go out and wrestle your tails off, and I respect that. And I told you when I saw you guys, I remember someone was Long Beach shows or cow palace or someplace. It was that I really believe that you your game has gotten better and a lot better. I really believe that because here's why you're now at a pace that I am. Most of us can process. And you also have that invaluable ability to sell and make me feel it. And did you always have the understanding that selling is a huge element to the to the presentation. Nick again, we did, but for the longest time we didn't have the chance to if that makes any sense. We would only be given the opening match and they would say, are you have to six minutes..

"Everything the pet can goof. You kind of tip it off. You know, I actually thought for a while I might. It might be those two police officers in Chicago where I'm headed here. If you moments. They're in hot water after Fisher them sleeping on the job went viral. And God forbid something go viral. Asian gentleman. I'll turn it over to my racial tan. He'll ping your ass. I'll tell you that right now where that means you'll do it. Are the photo showed these two dudes in Chicago police vehicle slumped over and snoozing. They were also wearing just for your records. Black will approve this 'cause you never know how those dreams can work out. Got to be careful. I like the fact that some of their allies are saying whether overworked and they're just wore out, and then you go back and look at their record or their their their work record. And they're not been that Abdoun that many over app overtime hours. But you know, eat those down donuts man. Sometimes you sleepy. And this company me what happened. They just they took a nap and they got busted. So that's not cool, especially when. Over the weekend. Fifty. Nine people in Chicago were shot. Well, that's good for some tickets. Zanies. Fifty. Nine people got shot you. I'll tell you this. No one will be injured. No animals to be harmed at at the JR king. Show promise you so, but not a good, not good timing for the the brave men in black or blue wherever they were there too, because sleeping, but without a doubt, the fit can goofy award. Again, I said, I kind of tipped it off what the hell's, Madonna think. KOMO, hey, I love you that people are young at heart. She sixty. She's been around the block many times. All I can tell you is she was there to open her heart and express herself about Aretha Franklin at the MTV video music awards on Monday night. And I thought she was a little self serving. The highlights. I saw it just reeked of disingenuous -ality. You know, I understand where in the black, the African jewelry, I was pandering a little bit. The fact headgear all that stuff. And she rambled in rambled, did Madonna and miss Franklin who passed away of pancreatic cancer aged seventy six actually helped launched Madonna's career. I just thought it was poorly worded pearly produced on pay for again in the writer's room. A lot of things look really good. Think about some of the angles she seen on TV you didn't like, but in the writer's room, sometimes it sounds like it's going to be a killer. So I thought that Madonna code a much better job, honoring a wreath of Franklin. And so therefore without a doubt, hands down, Madonna is this week's pet Coon goofy award winner. Congratulations. Maj..

And Shannon baiser had a great whims match. All good stuff. I was tipped to name the eagles much lower knocker the week because they broke the all time. Bestselling album record is a sentimental choice for me because my wife, Janet love the eagles would allow their concerts as big business Russ, so they're they, they're hotel.
