"Will be sorry if you do that. Oh, man. Especially at the Bates motel, because you know, Norman gave a little sticky, a little sticky finger about the whole thing, yes. Yes, indeed. All your Scott while Micah and I enjoy a fine beverage. Please. Yes. Average. Well done, bravo. Oh, thank you. Excellent Homer Simpson. Okay, hello everybody. So nice to see you all here as always. Finally, the heat has broken. It is humid up here in Santa Cruz as well, but man, coastal town of Santa Cruz got to the mid 90s last week, which is very rare. Very rare. And up in the hills easily into the 105 110 range. And that's just a few miles away from here. Hey, loquacious. Always great to see you here. Let's see. Twisted mister says, oled's dim when there's a static image displayed for long periods of time. It's to protect the panel. Generally that's true. But this raising of the black level. I don't think there's a need to do that. And there should be a way to turn it off. So I'm kind of bummed about that. Now, I will tell you this, I have a first generation Sony oled, a one E. And I don't see any evidence of screen burn in. Now I don't leave a static image on it. For long periods of time, and I don't watch, I don't keep the news channels on it for days at a time with the scrolling ticker at the bottom. And I don't play video games on it, so there's no scoreboards sitting there in one place, but I have seen no evidence of screen burn in on that oled in now, some number of years. When did the a one E come out? User 79 98, how do you turn off the auto dimming on the oled? Well, there may be a control in the picture menu. To do that, some will probably offer it some won't. Mike mon. How you doing, man? How about putting a piece of black tape over that light sensor? Hey, you know what? That's a low tech, but great idea. For the Sony a 95 K, QD oled to prevent it from raising the black level in high ambient light situations. I like that. I like that. Simple, probably effective. I would certainly want to try it. Let's see, Gumby, recommendation on a good set of under $200 over the year travel wireless wired headphones, collapse small like the beats, I'm looking at the ATM M 50, ATH, sorry. That's a good question.

"To the iMac. I'm not sure if that would work though. I don't think you can AirPlay into a Mac. That's a good question. Hello chat room. Can you AirPlay into yeah, so target display mode, but his does not support it. Could you play into a iMac? I think you're better off. I mean, honestly, monitors get a delt. Get a good deal. That's the setup I have here. This is the Mac mini. M1 Mac mini, and this is a $300 32 inch Samsung. It's curved, which is unfortunate. But it's a great, so I wouldn't get. I didn't know it was curved and read the specs carefully. But the price was right. And it's a great HD monitor. So that's what I probably what I will do. You can take your old TV. 65 inch, 21 inches too big for Joanna. Oh, come on, just sit farther from it. Yeah. I love my 55 inch. It takes a while to get used to it. Once you get used to it though, you can't go home. Oh man. Oh, it's nice. All right, we'll go get your coffee. Thank you so much. No problem. Mike mon, there's an app for that. I wonder, is there really? An app on the iMac that would turn it into a monitor? I tech asks is four K future proof now that 8 K has hit the market. Well, it depends on what you mean by future proof. I mean, ultimately, probably not, but I honestly 8 K is on the market now, but it ain't cheap, it requires really a very big screen. For example, the three 8 K TVs that were in the shoot out this last weekend are all 88 inches or 88 in the case of the LG oled. And the cost of the Sony 85 Z 9 K is $10,000. The Samsung QN 900 B is 8500 bucks. And the LG 88 inch Z two oled is $25,000. So it's going to be quite a while, I think, until 8 K migrates into more affordable products.

"Flew with flatulence. Is there a name that could combine the two? I want flu plus flatulence. Fluent? Yes, bingo. Brilliant brand marketers that you are. Flatulent at last. Forwards. Well, 35 hertz, you might even be able to reproduce. Are they French? Do you think? Canadians? They must be French Canadian French. Maybe that's a good word in French. Anyway, yes. And majesty. It does? No. Wow. Sorry to disappoint. It doesn't mean anything. So Scott, while I try to get the timer in your corner, I will, but you take over. You have three minutes. Thank you so very much. What do you need, Johnny? Hello, everybody. I can you still hear me? Yeah. I can't hear anything. Oh, you're good. Okay, good. Then, hey, how you doing? Hey, hey, Gumby. You get bonus Scott Wilkinson right now. It's me. Hello. Mike mon. So good to see you. We haven't talked in a long time. I need to give you a call. We need to catch up because it's been quite a while. Have I lost weight? Well, I probably wouldn't say that, but I am trying. Let's put it that way. Gumby said, did I check out the cheap Bluetooth tube amp that you sent me? No, I haven't had a chance to do that yet. Hey little questions. Good to see you as always. I've been a little recalcitrant in my requested research. Because of house hunting and I will let those of you who are in the chat room in on a little secret looks like we've found a house yay. I am so thrilled that we have finally after months and months of looking. We actually have been shopping for a year. Now, last year, we hadn't sold our House in LA yet, so we couldn't actually make an offer on a place. And I saw one or two places get away from me because I couldn't actually make an offer on them that I'm really I'm really sad and bummed that we had to do that. But now we are in escrow. So this is brand new news, everybody, fresh off the presses. And it's in the perfect location, right exactly where we wanted to be very near to our friends with their kids and their grandkids. Large enough to have music rehearsals, which was another really important criterion. A single level. There are very few houses in Santa Cruz that are single level. Most of them are dual level and Joanna and I, our knees aren't getting any younger. And we really didn't want to be traipsing up and down stairs every day. So single level and at a price we could afford. And pretty new too. So we are super stoked about. Tech dyno no, this was not the house we had an appointment at last week. That was a different house, and it did not work out. Although that house was very interesting, it was two story. So that was really kind of a deal breaker, but it was a little bit up in the Woods, which was also a little concerning, but beautiful Spanish Mediterranean style. If it had been single level, I would have been all over it. But anywhere. Thank you, Scott..

"What was it like for you watching that game? Well, first off, I want to say to both fans showed up for this game. At least in my section, Monday was 75, 25 raiders to charges. Totally reversed this time around. There's just nothing, but fans everywhere, and it made the game fired up. But I was, I mean, being a fan for so long, I was nervous and I was in the whole thinking of, okay, let's wait and see. Let's wait and see. Kind of like Kyle said when they were going for four instead of field goal that I was thinking of myself, what the hell are you doing? I know, right. Points. This is my white messing around, but I was proven wrong and I was telling people around me like, my bad call, you know. I got to get used to how this offense and how this whole poaching staff protest games because it's so much more exciting and keeps the edge of your seat and the place is just rocking. It was so awesome just to see this fight going on like a boxing match, you know. We've gone, ah man, it was an awesome game. And it's like, you have these games you go to that like leave a stamp. It feels like if you were at that game experiencing that, like, that's like one of those like stamp games that you'll remember for a long time. Exactly. It felt just like that. And I'm so thrilled that I was there, and I was like, man, I can't wait to see what the next games are going to be patriots. Vikings, I can't wait for these games to happen. Just like, I hope they're just as awesome. I know. Yeah, being a season ticket holder is so much fun and having the ability to kind of like just be around on the charger fans 'cause I live out in the middle of Missouri. So it's hard for me to get around to the charger fans, but like, man, our community is getting really awesome. What have you noticed from some of the fan interactions and being at the game? The bolt fam vibe like. Oh, everyone's so friendly. I mean, I went myself Fernando like you guys had last week. Sweet. I felt Adam I said hi to Adam over there at this snappy. But it's as neat to see people like that and know a lot of these people you guys feature in the tailgates and the organizations interact with them now. I said, I don't do social media to welcome. My wife now follows them on Instagram and stuff, so she's always pointing at all. Someone said we're having drinks over here, let's go hang out. Yeah, it's just such a good family environment and such a good value to pump that with, you know, thousands of other charger fans. And we're all sharing the same excitement, you know, it's the same experience of what a great, great season, you know, we're having right now. The four and one feels real nice. Feels real nice. And I thought I was going to be happy with three and three. To me, that was going to be heaven. You know, the innocent, but I can't wait for one. Dude, in legitimately looking at 5 and one before the buy. This is an exciting year to be a charger fan and from when we talked before we got started, you said you had something exciting you might want to share with us. Let me try to keep this short, but then what COVID in the past few years is tragic and it's hard it was for a lot of people. There was a few benefits that happened. I got to go on some chat rooms and beat a lot of people I would never met before. Sure. So one of the zoom groups I met with had a guy there that noticed my charger hat one night, and he's like, yeah, you know, I kind of a contractor for the organization. And I worked with the soccer team and the charters I could still hub. And I'm like, well, that's cool, you know, that's really awesome. So I got the opportunity to meet him when the restrictions lit up a little bit. Yeah. And he says, hey, you know, stick around. I got something for you. You might appreciate. I don't know, whatever. But it comes back and he hands me this. And he says, do you know what this is? And I said, no, I don't get it. And he goes, well, one of the duties I have is I handled the cannon for the charger games and he goes, when we had a retrofit the new logo on the canon, I got to keep one of the two pieces and he goes, I think you would appreciate it. And man, it was like, Christmas morning. I lit up at the green. I was fixing my brothers and family. Oh my God, look what the hell I got. And it's really cool because you can actually see the marks on the wheels on the back side. And wheels and everything. And I was totally stoked. I actually got to meet him again on the raider game. He came up to my seat to say hi, because he does all the pre game tunnel special effects on things. But you guys are going to kick out of that. Yeah, I do that. Gorgeous. That's like the first bolt on the new bolt on the canon. That's like legit. Keep that somewhere safe. Yeah, so one of these days when I get a space on the wall, it's going to go up, but in honor, you know, with the photograph and people can pay homage and they come over. Yeah, it's just like kissing. God, that's so cool, man. How random, cool, you just met some guy in zoom and he just happened to be running the canon for the challenge. Yeah, that was just having me so lucky and I try to share that story with fans. I know, because they get a kick out of me. That's awesome. I know, it's rad. So all right, well, let's get you out of here on this, you know, we have Baltimore Ravens coming up. We were talking about it. We could go 5 and one. What do you think we need to do to go 5 and one against these ravens? Well, I like to think that the defense could play like we did in mahomes and try to contain Lamar Jackson. You know, as the he's going to get his place, but if we can contain this Ronnie, I think we'll do a lot better than we did this past week because we're not going to be facing that two headed running to solve. Yeah. I think we'll be able to hopefully lock them down pretty good. I think I'm pretty confident we could probably pull the win out. Awesome man. Yeah. Can't wait for this game. I'm so excited. Cloud 9 right now. So and hopefully we can meet up. I'm gonna be at the Vikings game, so maybe we can meet up at a rally and say hi. Yeah, absolutely. All right man, well, thank you so much for your time. It was great having you, Michael, and yeah, we'll talk to you soon my man. Hi, thanks, Kevin. I love you, my man. Yeah, I love you bye. No, that guy. Michael, I know that guy. What a stud. Dude, what how cool to have a piece of physical thing of chargers history. Yeah. That's amazing. Mike maudlin's losing his mind right now. If he's listening to this podcast, he's I hope to hope he's given goddess little something about the canon little history on the canon. That would be pretty sweet to add Mike mon Linda's just dropping a little something for you. Something to look at, but oh man, Michael, that was so damn cool. That was what great stories, man. Again, just love these fan focuses and how they how they connect us all together. This beautiful umbrella that is the Chargers. This beautiful bolt umbrella. Awesome guy. It's just cool. You met him. We're meeting everyone. That's the best thing out of all of this is actually getting able to get face to face with people. Shake hands, talk and chat with these other people that some sick and tired of talking to you guys. Spread my wings and talk to others for reals. Awesome. All right, well, it's now time to go on to our next segment. We've got some killer wins now and every time we've been win and he's been bringing the heat. Let's see if he brings it this week. It's time. For the Greg experience. Come on in, man, kick your feet up. Oh, great. Hello there. Make yourself at home. Got some stuff to talk about, right? Moving on. You'll never find..

"mike mon" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Always been as good is his surrounding protection and coaching nick. Foles i'm not building my franchise around him. My argument is he's absolutely and has been for the last several years. The best backup quarterback in the nfl. Dear calling your plugged into usc. Why did they wait until the season started to fire clay hilton. Why didn't they do it months ago or even years ago lynn. Swann gave clay helton and extension so the current athletic director. Mike bohn inherited along klay hilton contract. Usc was going through some ugly financial payouts. They didn't to write a check for twenty million dollars for a new guy and fifteen million dollars for clay hilton. Ideally clay would have been strong enough to get through this season. Then they would have written him about a five million dollar check. Instead they had a write in one closer to twelve. The reality with clay helton is at mike mon. The current athletic director was never a huge fan. He surrounded him with elite recruiters hoping that if he had to get rid of clay helton the next coach would inherit a team and a roster capable of winning the pac twelve. I believe that is true. The cupboard is not bear. Mike bone deserve credit. He two years ago realized clay. Helton who inherited was not perfect. He also realized very quickly. If i put money into the staff make it younger. Very good at recruiting. The next coach has a chance to take over the team and win immediately. And i believe if he gets it right with the coach. They'll be favored next year in the conference. Dear colin which team and fan base is the most frustrating to you in all of sports. That's the best question yet. It's the united states men's national soccer team every time something goes wrong. They blame the coach in other sports. We know inherently the coach can't control everything. Bill belichick is struggling to win as the greatest football coach ever without tom brady. Gregg popovich is largely considered the best strategist in the last fifteen years in the nba. He now can't win without tim. Duncan a coach. It's understood is only as good as his players really think. Last year dave roberts was the best manager in baseball but for some reason soccer fans. Keep blaming gregg. Berhalter for everything folks. The world's best soccer coach whoever that may be would not get to final four in the world cup. This team has more offensive talent except midfield than any team we potentially ever had but we don't have brazil argentina germany england. We don't have that level of talent every other fan base realizes even great coaches have absolute limitations. Ballot check popovich based on talent..

The high is Today was like fifty seven. That's wild and then. The high on thursday is eighty-five. That's now i don't. I don't like it. I don't understand it i don't get it. I mean all my gosh. Maybe it's frozen rain. I don't know what the what is out. There looks like snow wild. Wow those hands better start getting those feathers so thick and warm winning. It's called you cover up with a down comforter. They are walking down comforters. That's true they're actually read on my little backyard. Hen dot com. I don't know what it is like that. Like fanatics people that are fanatical about chickens out. Those are the ones you learn from. And i and people were like oh they put in heat lamps and some no. Don't do that. It ruins them because they won't be able to build up those feathers so well heat lamps caused a ton of fires every year too dangerous. It's like don't do that. So unless it's like sub-freezing for many many days in a row like they provide their own insulation. they are good so a few years ago. We were in new york for when the book launched. And i didn't know what to get julie and she's pretty hard to shop for She will she will say that you know and What do i get her. And so i thought i would write her a poem. Then you're like well. That's super risky. That's way riskier than giving someone custom wedding bands. Maybe so So i i wrote. And i thought okay. I'm gonna i brainstorm all these different events that took place during when we've met dating you know the whole courtship marriage like like the early days and i came up with a lot of different kind of singular events and one of my landed on. I i wrote a poem about that. And i don't even remember if it's like What format i use. I started writing. And then i framed it and gave it to her and it was one of the best gifts she just loved it. And it's like a twenty dollar frame had nothing to do with anything except the writing and so then. That was such a hit that now every year. I have to write a poem about something. So i have a note of all of these stories and i'm just like okay this year. I'll write about my really really lousy proposal. You know really really bad. And so that. Last year i did. It was a haiku and she loves it. So i'm partially worried that i'm going to run out of poetry but it's also kind of fun thing. I usually get started in october. And start to kind of workshop at right at stuff. And it's only mine like it's really bad probably but i purposely don't hold up to any standard except the one that julie holded up to which is pretty low but she. That's amazing. yeah. I like it i did hear. I mean so on your team. The the comic chameleons did you have anyone that wasn't for the oxford comma or was everyone just like. Oh look we all are saying. And we we saying they named the Take because i've talked to. I think to from your team and they both very much in favor of an additional comment for clarity. Yes surprisingly though we were pretty split. It was like a sixty forty like sixty percent about. We had the majority that were fans of the extra comma but there were a surprising number of people that were not in favor of it which blew my mind a little bit if we did. Performance reviews that would be. That'd be in there. You know i can be fixed. have you fixed. You're wrong thinking about this now. I'm seeing ya out. Just like not wanting to over. Punctuate it justice unnecessary end. Yeah we don't wanna over punctuate arsons i do. I do tend to overuse commas in general but not not in the way that the oxford comma wants to be just way too many. You know. I do have to catch myself on that. That's a weakness. I like we had a really meaningful text chain here after and now it's just gone all for not. Yeah exactly so. I can't get my parents on it either so really like created this thing. They're like now and my mom. Got you know jesse. We really felt like she's talking to be as if this is new to me like i said you have manji money. Sometimes and one time on mike mike mon you realize like i do this for a living and i'm not bad at it. I'm pretty good. Yeah yeah i still go to. Of course. I always outsource go do a workshop. 'cause i am actually batted explaining it compared to how the teachers now i know me too. That's why i always when people want to get started. I buy tons of copies of the books. Like can give them out. Because i'm like i will not do it. Justice and because the whole method thing didn't click for me until i read the book. I technically did audiobook. But yeah i like the part. This is meta but the part where you were talking about. Because you talked about your you and julie's first budget because at the time i was like a poor college student and like the dave ramsey. They're like three hundred dollars for groceries. Fifteen hundred for the mortgage Pisses way out of my room. And i remember you were like five dollars for fun. Money was that is exactly where. I'm at five dollars the money category. So that's what it kind of clicked for. I always buck. That's what's your ship. Visit the okay. Well one. you're on this. This generalist team called the comic chameleons. And i just talked with cat and she's on that team as well right. Yeah okay one is. Where's the name come from. Our name comes from the fact that some of us were really staunch supporters of the oxford common off. And so we needed to be chameleons. And you know we needed to be able to adapt and accept. Both you know strong feelings about the really important oxford common ya. I mean so. Are there people that work at wine am that. Don't use the oxford comma. I'm sorry to break it to you but there are. Oh my gosh shocking. But we're gonna and why why. What's what's the downside on. I'm not wanna come on like this case. I think it's a useful skill to be able to plead the case. But i think some up with it. I mean we could try and steal mattie argument a little bit and just pretend we both don't believe it should be used but i think i have one thing i think maybe maybe that one fewer comma that they're typing Adds up lifetime. I admire your effort in that argument. But i not sold i overuse commas so i have a problem in that regard but when it comes to like clearly conveyed an idea with one extra comma and i'm not gonna call it extra with one comma. That does the job of clearly conveying the idea. I just don't see how the lawson all right well. We'll we'll we'll figure this out. I'm going to start out in the oxford comma questions and we'll see side.
Rush Limbaugh Morning Update
"mike mon" Discussed on Rush Limbaugh Morning Update
"Throughout this episode. And you're going to hear from a lot of different people some of them. You probably know some of them. You may not all of these. People have some kind of connection to rest with personal stories of times. They spent with him or even better some of the things they've learned from him among those you'll hear from of some russia's former co workers and friends plus the many guest host of the rush limbaugh show over the years like this guy one of our favorite guests host of all time from k. T. t. h. m. seattle. Todd often struggled with how to explain to people sufficiently the honor. It was to fill in for rush for all those years to be a guide host after rush died and the best can come up with. This is is this. If if you were a if you're an animator and you've got to fill in for walt disney or your favorite animator. What would that be like for the people who invented your medium that even your favorite but who invented your medium. That's that's what this is like if you are a software design and you've got called in to fill in on a day at work for steve jobs. What's that like when that's the level we're talking about here in terms of russia's legacy anytime you turn on a radio station and you hear it opinion based show you will be hearing the legacy of rush limbaugh opinion. Radio would have survived without rush. It's simply wouldn't have so anytime you hear opinion on radio you're listening to the legacy. America had an extra thirty years. It's try to save itself that's russia's legacy in that continues there are people who understand their country now children who read russia's books that's his legacy and in the last few months of his life he shared with us his faith his status as a christ follower and of course. That's his enduringly everybody. This is mark davis currently the morning host. Sixty me answer in dallas fort worth but for almost twenty years from the mid nineties until twenty twelve. I hosted a morning show on. Wbz the proud rush limbaugh affiliate for north texas now. That alone was an honor but when the opportunity arose in two thousand eight to begin to fill in for rush well. That's an easy. Yes so i slid into my version of the substitute host chair. Which in my case was right in my own studio in texas. Except for the times. When i flew up to new york to see the i e i b microphone to sit in the actual genuine chair it was like visiting the radio smithsonian wherever i did it the joy of filling in for rush was amplified by the pure pleasure of spending time in person with james golden aka. Bo snerdley mike mon the late kit carson. He was the guy who would always call. And then make the ask whenever there was a rush absence that needed filling and i filled that role. So gladly so gratefully from two thousand. Eight to two thousand twelve when i changed. Radio stations here in texas but the memories and the friendships live on. His absence is a void in my life and an empty space in american radio that cannot be filled but those of us who listened those of us who love him can continue to be inspired by him. I know i will. So as a page turns in radio history. I want all of you to know that rush was the kind of man you would want him to be kind. Devoted his family devoted to the radio family of people around him and devoted to this great nation which he served so well in this chosen calling of talk radio. God bless you rush and blessings to all of you. Who listened to him his love for you was obvious. Every day and our love for him will last forever. It's kitty o'neil here and back in the eighties it. Kk my job was to screen calls for one of the talk shows and rush limbaugh moved into that slot. So i screen calls for him. He did a show that was comedic in nature although he expressed a lot of political views and different views on society and things that were happening but he did it in a way. That was more like a an fm radio jock. I think that's what set him apart is that he was a conservative in view. But very shall we say irreverent in the way that he executed his show. It was full of humorous bits and jokes and certainly had a conservative bent but was a highly entertaining so people from both sides of the aisle would listen. I remember him has being extremely confident but also very insecure at the same time rush was very complex and often 'nigma to me. He was extremely generous though and as he became more wealthy and famous his generosity only increased. People often ask me what he was like off the air and he was not one to monopolize conversation or be overbearing with his views. He was very balanced conversationalist and would would listen to all sides of an argument. I don't think he ever set out to be the voice of the republican party but he really became elevated to that position and i suppose felton obligation to fulfill that but as famous as he became he never did forget his friends or where he started As we've been recording this series and we've talked to so many people in russia's life professionally and personally.

The Rush Limbaugh Show

"Throughout this episode. And you're going to hear from a lot of different people some of them. You probably know some of them. You may not all of these. People have some kind of connection to rest with personal stories of times. They spent with him or even better some of the things they've learned from him among those you'll hear from of some russia's former co workers and friends plus the many guest host of the rush limbaugh show over the years like this guy one of our favorite guests host of all time from k. T. h. m. seattle. Todd often struggled with how to explain to people sufficiently the honor. It was to fill in for rush for all those years to be a guide host after rush died and the best can come up with. This is is this. If if you were a if you're an animator and you've got to fill in for walt disney or your favorite animator. What would that be like for the people who invented your medium that even your favorite but who invented your medium. That's that's what this is like if you are a software design and you've got called in to fill in on a day at work for steve jobs. What's that like when that's the level we're talking about here in terms of russia's legacy anytime you turn on a radio station and you hear it opinion based show you will be hearing the legacy of rush limbaugh opinion. Radio would have survived without rush. It's simply wouldn't have so anytime you hear opinion on radio you're listening to the legacy. America had an extra thirty years. It's try to save itself that's russia's legacy in that continues there are people who understand their country now children who read russia's books that's his legacy and in the last few months of his life he shared with us his faith his status as a christ follower and of course. That's his enduringly. hey everybody. This is mark davis currently the morning host. Sixty me answer in dallas fort worth but for almost twenty years from the mid nineties until twenty twelve. I hosted a morning show on. Wbz the proud rush limbaugh affiliate for north texas now. That alone was an honor but when the opportunity arose in two thousand eight to begin to fill in for rush well. That's an easy. Yes so i slid into my version of the substitute host chair. Which in my case was right in my own studio in texas. Except for the times. When i flew up to new york to see the first i microphone to sit in the actual genuine chair. It was like visiting the radio smithsonian wherever i did it. The joy of filling in for rush was amplified by the pure pleasure of spending time in person with james golden aka. Bo snerdley mike mon the late kit carson. He was the guy who would always call. And then make the ask whenever there was a rush absence that needed filling and i filled that role. So gladly so gratefully from two thousand eight to two thousand twelve. When i changed radio stations here in texas but the memories and the friendships live on. His absence is a void in my life and an empty space in american radio that cannot be filled but those of us who listened those of us who love him can continue to be inspired by him. I know i will. So as a page turns in radio history. I want all of you to know that rush was the kind of man you would want him to be kind. Devoted his family devoted to the radio family of people around him and devoted to this great nation which he served so well in this chosen calling of talk radio. God bless you rush and blessings to all of you. Who listened to him his love for you was obvious. Every day and our love for him will last forever. It's kitty o'neil here and back in the eighties it. Kk my job was to screen calls for one of the talk shows and rush limbaugh moved into that slot. So i screen calls for him. He did a show that was comedic in nature although he expressed a lot of political views and different views on society and things that were happening but he did it in a way. That was more like a an fm radio jock. I think that's what set him apart is that he was a conservative in view. But very shall we say irreverent in the way that he executed his show. It was full of humorous bits and jokes and certainly had a conservative bent but was a highly entertaining so people from both sides of the aisle would listen. I remember him has being extremely confident but also very insecure at the same time rush was very complex and often 'nigma to me. He was extremely generous though and as he became more wealthy and famous his generosity only increased. People often ask me what he was like off the air and he was not one to monopolize conversation or be overbearing with his views. He was very balanced conversationalist and would would listen to all sides of an argument. I don't think he ever set out to be the voice of the republican party but he really became elevated to that position and i suppose felton obligation to fulfill that but as famous as he became he never did forget his friends or where he started As we've been recording this series and we've talked to so many people in russia's life professionally and personally. We've had a chance to hear stories. That even i hadn't heard before i had the chance to sit down and talk with some of russia's closest personal friends people. He spent a lot of time with on the golf course and out and about normal everyday life and they couldn't have been nicer more generous with their time.

"Three super conferences in maybe sixteen in each of them. And that's it you just capital that a program like vandy where they're gonna get parting gifts and say see later but imagine if the nfl did this. If if all of a sudden you'd said name we're going to bring in. Robert kraft goes. Let's bring in the giants you know we. We want them to be part of our conference here. You know these these blue bloods cowboys. How valuable i guess. That's the way isn't that the way. English soccer works with relegation. I love relegation right. Like what if the nfl split into three and you had relegation. Is there any expansion on the horizon with the nfl. I don't think so. Because i think the. Nfl owners are like so where they are like. They came to a point. I think fifteen years ago or so where it was we've done we've grown up as much as we can right so like domestically the way the products been produced over the last you know however many decades we've maxed that out and so now we just got ad inventory right so everything was growing out. That's what london is going back to. La seventeen games expanding the playoffs all of those different things. But they've done it within the context of thirty two teams and the key. There is that pie talking to jerry. Always says. grow the pie. Well if you're splitting a thirty two ways you're growing it and then maybe you're splitting at thirty four ways thirty six ways now. You've got to grow the pie that much more. So i think if they were ever going to go into like talking about expanding again like the growth would have to be exponential financially where you know splitting thirty four ways of thirty six ways would mean more of a share for each of the teams then splitting a thirty two ways. And you're not gonna do that by going into some middling market you know what i mean like you have to go to. Someplace is really going to add a lot of value. So the only way i really see that happening is if it's international. What about relocation. yeah. I mean we've always heard grousing. I think over the last maybe decade or so about teams pulling their weight you know and the cincinnati is the world and how like buffalo had the owner's name in the stadium for that long and how cincinnati still has. The you know the name of the founder of the team in the stadium. How they're not doing rights deals and they're not pulling every lever financially and they're dragging the other teams down to begin with because they're smaller markets. So could we eventually get there. Maybe i think what's protected. A lot of those teams has been the stadium. Boom and so many of those stadiums are like relatively new. And so you know like indianapolis for example would be a city where you look and you'd say all right like is this city pulling its weight. Well they built a stadium a little over ten years ago. So i like the idea of moving those teams with l. a. off the table now Really becomes matter of one those stadiums sort of age out. And i think we're still a ways away from that like cincinnati stadiums. What twenty years old. Now and i'm not picking on the bengals but you know there are stadiums that are getting a little older. Now you know when those stadiums are thirty thirty five years old. Maybe we're talking about something else again. My caveat on that would be the same where the international part of it. I think could come into play. Where a city what. We've talked about jacksonville forever. Like whenever they're ready to go to london. I'm a different category than moving team. Domestically we're talking albert breer the senior. Nfl reporter for the monday morning quarterback. What intrigued you out of cowboys camp yesterday with jerry jones anything catcher retention. The jimmy johnson. Definitely i mean. I know that's not about here. And the now but the fact that you know he basically can see they're gonna put them in the ring of honor. I don't think most people know that. Jimmy's not in the ring of honor in dallas. Which is just seems absurd right. Yeah that's seems a little petty. Yeah yeah so. I mean the fact that he can seated and i think. He said that he doesn't wanna do it this year. Because they wanna honor jimmy forgetting getting in the hall of fame this year so they wanna do a separate ceremony for which is fair but the fact that he's conceding that it's going to be done got my attention now as far as the here and the now and the cowboys like two day Yeah i think. Mike mccarthy saying dak prescott full go is huge because i i can remember when that injury happened and i can remember talking to people in january and february where there was definitely some quiet concern. I mean i guess. Even just how jack was moving around at that point you know and so this was more you know this was more than like a tornado c. l. or somebody blowing out there achilles. This was something where there weren't a ton of guarantees. What is going to look like coming back. So i think the fact that he's full go for the started. Training camp is enormous enormous news. Even if it's what we expect it all along then you got steelers camp. That's opened up and those two will meet in the hall of fame game. I still go back to. the steelers. went all in on improving their running game and and i didn't know of. That's really what they needed to improve upon and you could get a running back and we've devalued running backs. I like nausea harris. But do i like him at that spot for the steelers that it came as a little bit of a surprise how about you i think i think a piece of that is the need to take the pressure off of ben rothlisberger shoulders. I think it's an acknowledgment. He can't carry the team anymore in a lot of ways. I mean i guess the parallel you could you know. Try to the ninety s broncos when. What terrell davis did for john elway the end of his career. Did they feel like ben rothlisberger because of experience the inventory. He has mentally his big game experience. All that different stuff like they can still win with him but he can't carry the team anymore and so. I think that it's an acknowledgment like we're pretty good at receiver. And if we get him back and we create easy completions for him he's gonna take less hits and so the equation there for for mike. Tomlin and kevin colbert was like how can we make it. So this is less about ben rothlisberger and more about the team around him lifting him up now. The one thing that i think everybody has sort of glossed over over the last six months. Alejandro villanueva has gone david. Castro's gone markey's pounds. He's gone and mike mon- shack who is the line coach. You put all that together. Five years ago as gone to so i think so much of where the steelers go was going to ride in their ability to support ben rothlisberger and not ask much of ben rothlisberger his age. Getting najji harris was a piece of that. The bigger question is can they fix the offensive line on the fly and the steelers have earned the benefit of the doubt when it comes to drafting and developing. But there's going to be a lot of pressure on a couple of young guys up front to get done. The team that had the best season the team that had the worst off season. The team had the best off season. I would say the team. That had the best off-season god i you know. I would almost go rams but they just lost camakers also. It would seem like like i. Just i don't know. I have a hard time going with them and the bucks are easy because they bring everybody back. I'm gonna give you a little bit of a curve ball. I'm going to say the chargers. I like their head coach. A lot brain staley and i think like they quietly fix their offensive line in a very pragmatic way where they didn't overreach for anybody they got. I think guy who some people would argue is the best center in the league corey lansley and they drafted a left tackle. Sean slater who no one thought was going to be there thirteen so they got good value in free agency. They got good value left tackle. They were able to fix both of those spots without going crazy. And then on top of that. You lose hundred henry tight end but i think you could argue. If jared cook stays healthy. He could be an upgrade at that position. So i just look at them and what they've done to support their young quarterback. Justin herbert i..

Grabbed up, but he believes he and a ball Would be a table would be the two that I'd like to see what what is your so many people have talked about Eric, the enemy. What is it where people won't wait? On him. They've waited on other teams of waiting on other coaches to finish their postseason run. What is it about Eric? Be enemy That makes teams hasn't it to hire him for whatever reason. Well, First of all, you don't see many coaches going super ball than getting their coaching jobs. You just don't call Sandy and dead, so it's rare. And but he's at interviews before. He said. Father of years blessing terms of Texans down, he'll interview with them. I'm not sure about the Eagles, but I have no idea why didn't have a head coaching job because Everybody says great things about it. John McClane joining us here on the show. What's the future for JJ Watt? Got one year left us con drag 17 million. I've always thought he would be back to give him probably extension for a year total lower the captain here, but it's necessary. Oh, operates here. Where he has doubled control the way bill Valid. Jack operating New England. Then I don't give a lot of big contracts the older players so I would think why would be traded He'd be 32 years old. Not sure what they could get that if what came out publicly and said he'd like to be traded. The Pittsburgh they reunited with his brothers. I think the fan base was would agree. Let the guy go let him finish his career with his brother for brothers. You're a winner, but he hasn't done that. We asked him about the house building in his last dream called, he said, I don't know. I don't know anything there. Too many unknowns there. John McClane joining us on the show. Gosh, that seems to be such a tough thing cause I know he's beloved. It's it's reached a icon status. It seems to be with JJ Watt down in Houston. But boy Pittsburgh would make an interesting in interesting partner. But Have to wonder about the future of Ben Roethlisberger. And just how competitive that team would be in the future either With or without Ben Roethlisberger. What do you think he'll do? What do you think he should do? I think, then write those burgers. Last game is not gonna be 500 yards and four interceptions and four touchdowns and a loss to the Brown. He said he wants to play into his forties. I think they need to get a running game. Sailors were 32nd. When's the last time the sailors have been last in rushing, and they were missing prayer. Their linebackers at one point lost two for the season and you know again if you're 34 Those linebackers of the Cato Everything on defense. TJ wife was only one stayed healthy. So l've been running game to me or what the Steelers need. God, it looks like they might even help on that offensive line. Open that up to the last time. They probably done that. Probably since before Chuck Noll got there. John McClane's name is Mike Mon check. Their great offensive line coach has left Two years ago to go to Denver, and they have had not anybody could coach like Munch because he's one of the two or three best in the NFL. We got one of the Super Bowl. Before the season. I've said New Orleans in Baltimore with New Orleans, the both still in it. I'm not going against Kansas City and Patrick, my homes. They've been toying with people of that now they'll get interested and become the first team to win back to back since ages. After that. I want to know two seasons. Damn, John. I don't wanna have to eat crow on that always said it's impossible to win two anymore. It's hard to put the confetti back in the day. You're probably gonna be right Can it is hard. A lot of good teams out there. They did not play great blow anybody out down the stretch, but it's almost like they were bored, but my house is so good. And they get quite Edwards the land back their running game but faltered and they got a lot on the line. I'm sure it means a lot to Andy raid the homes that all those players to be the first thing Do it and all these many years Yeah, I know. I just met. I don't want to be wrong.

He's an icon there, the charitable work that he's done. It goes without saying the guy's a great guy. He's just a great guy all the way around. And I've been as a fan. I've been in this situation before. Where you have a player who's become an icon to a city and you want to make sure that they're taken care of.
