"And so in the beginning, all I really had to do was just do what they told me to do. Show up here, show up there, show up here, you know. But the other thing was that we were really digging into the things about emotions and feelings and meaning and connecting. I mean, we were talking about these things. And I was surrounded by people who were talking about these things. And so that was a big part of it was that, you know, my meaning after a little while became first about getting sober. And that took on a lot of meaning. That was what my life was about because it became very clear to me that that was what my life depended on. So there's a phrase from acceptance and commitment therapy that are vulnerabilities will often show us our values, right? And so in that case, my vulnerability was my addiction. And so my value very much became my sobriety. And then the thing that I loved about 12 step programs. AA had a number, I think, of really genius insights. And I'm not saying it's the right thing for everybody by any stretch of the imagination. It's not the right thing for everybody. One of its key insights, a a founded when Bill Wilson, the founder, a stockbroker from New York, bell ruined stockbroker, went on a business trip to Akron, Ohio, and had been sober a little while, but knew he was going to drink. He was basically like, at the edge of the hotel bar. And so on a whim, he just went, all right, I need to try and help somebody. And so he started calling local churches until he found one. He basically was saying to them at the time. You know, this is going to sound a little bit strange, guys, but I'm a recovering alcoholic. I'm sure they didn't even have that word. From New York City and I'm looking to talk, do you have a drunk anywhere I can talk to? And they connected him with a guy named doctor bob Smith, who was a proctologist from Akron, Ohio. I'm going to leave the proctology jokes alone. Out of respect for our listeners and any proctologists out there. It's an important role. Important work. Yep. So the founding of AA is considered the moment that Bill and doctor bob sat down and talked that night. And the insight was that, yes, Bill was there. Bill was sober, and he was talking to doctor bob, who was not, about how to get sober. So Bill was helping pop. But the great insight was that bob was helping bill every bit as much. That ability to help others to connect with someone else.

"Richard belzer, comedian and TV detective, dies at 78. By Jake Cole, Associated Press, New York. Richard belzer, the longtime stand up comedian, who became one of TV's most indelible detectives as John munch and homicide life on the street, and Law & Order SVU has died. He lost 78. Bells are died Sunday at his home in beaulieu Sur mer in southern France, his longtime friend, Bill scheft said, shaft, a writer who had been working on a documentary about belser, said there was no known cause of death, but that bells had been dealing with circulatory and respiratory issues. The actor, Henry Winkler, bells, cousin, tweeted, rest in peace, Richard. For more than two decades, and across ten series, even including appearances on 30 rock and Arrested Development, bells are played the wisecracking acerbic homicide detective prone to conspiracy theories. Bells are first played much on a 1993 episode of homicide, and last played him in 2016 on Law & Order SVU. Bells are never auditioned for the role, after hearing him on the Howard Stern show, executive producer Barry Levinson brought the comedian to read for the part. I would never be a detective, but if I were, that's how I'd be. Bells are once said. They write to all my paranoia and anti establishment dissidents, and conspiracy theories. So it's been a lot of fun for me. A dream, really. From that unlikely beginning, bells are munch would become one of television's longest running characters and a sunglasses wearing presents on the small screen for more than two decades. In 2008, bells are published the novel, I am not a cop, but Michael Ian black. He also helped write several books on conspiracy theories about things like president John F. Kennedy's assassination and Malaysia Airlines flight three 70. He made me laugh a billion times as longtime friend and fellow stand up Richard Lewis, said Sunday on Twitter. Born in Bridgeport, Connecticut, bells are was drawn to comedy, he said, during an abusive childhood in which his mother would beat him and his older brother land, he would do impressions of his childhood idol Jerry Lewis. My kitchen was the toughest room I ever worked. Bells are told People magazine in 1993. After being expelled from dean junior college in Massachusetts, bells are embarked on a life of stand up in New York in 1972. At catch a rising star, bells are became a regular performer and an MC. He made his big screen debut in Ken Shapiro's 1974 film that grooved tube, a TV satire costarring Chevy Chase, a film that grew out of the comedy group channel one that bells are was a part of. Before Saturday Night Live changed the comedy scene in New York, bells are performed with John Belushi Gilda Radner, Bill Murray, and others on the National Lampoon radio hour. In 1975, he became the warmup comic with the newly launched SNL. While many cast members quickly became famous, bells rolls were mostly smaller cameos. He later said SNL creator Lorne Michaels reneged on a promise to work him into the show. But bells are became one of the era's top stand ups. He was known especially for his biting cynical attitude and his witty sometime combative banter with the audience. As one of the most influential comedians of the 70s, bouncer was a master of crowd work. My style evolved from dealing with drunken people at 12 one two in the morning and trying to be like an alchemist and get the lead out of their lives and turn it into golden jokes. Bells are told Terry gross on fresh air. Bells are what later write an irreverent, self help book titled how to be a stand up comic with advice on things like how to apologize to Frank Sinatra when you made fun of him on stage, or how to deal with hecklers. One of his favorite lines was, I have a microphone, you have a beer. God has a plan, and you're not in on it. Bells are often played a stand up comic in film, including a 1980s fame and 1980 threes Scarface. He had small roles here and there, including a night shift in 1982, and fletch lives in 1989. But munch would change bells career. As homicide co creator Tom Fontana said, munch was the spice in these dishes. Bells are told The AV Club. Munch was based on a real guy in Baltimore, who was a star detective in a way. He would come on to grisly murder scenes, start doing one liners because someone had to break the tension. So munch served a very important function. Not only was he a dissident who said what was on his mind, he kind of had the gallows humor that's needed in a homicide squad. When homicide wrapped in early 1999, bells are called dick wolf, to see if the character could join another NBC series, Law & Order, where munch had popped up in a few previous episodes. Wolfe already had his leads were Law & Order, but he wanted bells are to star in a spin off. That fall, Law & Order SVU premiered with bells are starring alongside Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni, and the storyline written as though munch had transferred from Baltimore to New York. Richard belzer's detective John munch is one of television's iconic characters. Wolf said in a statement. I first worked with Richard on the Law & Order, homicide crossover, and loved the character so much wolf said. I wanted to make him one of the original characters on SVU. The rest is history. Richard brought humor and joy into all our lives, was the consummate professional, and we will all miss him very much. Bells are a survived by his third wife, the actress Harley McBride, whom he married in 1985, for the past 20 years they lived mostly in France and homes he purchased partially from the proceeds of a lawsuit with Hulk Hogan. In 1985, bells are had Hogan as a guest on his cable TV talk show hot properties to perform a chinlock on him. Bells are passed out, hit his head, and sued Hogan for $5 million. They settled out, of course..

"Stanley, CIO, Lisa shallots, warning that analysts are not reducing corporate earnings forecasts in line with economic projections. Case in point, Nike shares tumbled after the New York bell, the sportswear giant offered downbeat guidance, sales and greater in the Greater China region are down 20% missing analyst estimates. Let's bring in max bondues CEO and founder. MC capital. Max, what do you make of the Nike numbers and kind of what conclusions can you draw that might kind of set the stage for some of the other earnings announcements that are going to come in the next few days? Well, the key here is really the guidance because in terms of numbers of the passport is actually not bad. But what investors are worried about is the future is the guidance. And guidance here has been clearly bleak, which has led to the correction and post market that we are experiencing now. And the fear is that you might get quite a bit of that in the upcoming earnings season. So we are basically entering the slowdown in terms of growth and in terms of companies numbers as well. And part of it is definitely still not reflected in terms of the earnings expectation. So there needs to be a further correction in terms of that with potential negative outcome with respect to the share prices before the market can really rebound on a sustainable level. Max, good morning to you. This goes to the heart of what Michael Barry has been saying, which is this slowdown at the retail end, Walmart, target, Nike, I know Nike is about China. But he talks about a bulwark effect. In other words, when you got stuff backing up at the retail level, it causes an outside impact on the wholesale level and a deflationary impulse and that he says could cause a reversal by the fed. Do you think the fed in any way are prepared to reverse? So we under assuming the slowdown, potential slowdown in inflation. The fed currently can not be seen as changing its mind once again. It's already lost quite a bit of image over the past year. The point does not, it can not allow itself to change its mind again. So the messaging is going to continue with respect to their completely focused on bringing down inflation and consequently continue hiking rates. But the key here is with respect to additional additional hawkishness, because if what they've been saying so far, that's as far as it's going to go. So that's no additional hawkishness can be seen as a little bit of dovishness. And there are four from an inflation point of view, everything that you have just pointed out at the same time, some of the commodities declining. That's likely as in line with the base case scenario that we are going to be seeing peak inflation is not going to be as much a requirement for the fed to hike as aggressively. So all of that could potentially in a best case scenario support the market point forward. Max, let's talk about the investment strategy here. Does that mean you're holding on to a little bit more cash than usual? And might actually deploy it quite soon if there is another meaningful correction in equity valuations later in July. Correct. So we're holding on to what we define as being the core of the portfolio, because that's less trading oriented. That's more on long-term perspective in terms of secular growth of the names that we like. But definitely we are more cautious than what we've been over the past few years holding on to again, 19 and 25 to 40% in cash, depending on the profiles. And we're looking to deploy that a bit more tactically. So we've deployed that about two or three weeks ago. We're now taking out some of the investments. And upon a negative moves from some of the names that we like on earnings, which could happen, then we're going to be very happy to buy that because obviously we think we're closer to the bottom than we were a few months back. We're probably not at the bottom yet, but it's getting more interesting to start deploying liquidity. Well, it certainly feels less volatile perhaps than in 2008 when it was just a straight vintage line on the way down. This is a slow continental drift of pain. To the commodity space, you look non energy, non energy commodities, and we were looking at this yesterday, copper down 16%, 10.21% last week, the westerns in the 1980s. You think that there is more pain to come on the commodity side, yeah? Absolutely, because the move we have seen over the last few months in terms of the move up has been incredibly brutal. So it's actually been extremely positive for commodities, but that has to undo itself. So it's gone ahead of itself. And a lot of that will also do to some speculative positions and not so much as the geopolitical tensions and situations only. And we're seeing that unravel and the further unraveling is yet to happen. And again, that is going to have the consequences with respect to inflation, which could potentially bring it down. And the more important part here in addition to copper revenue and everything you've mentioned is to keep a lookout on the food commodities because that's the one that can really spell travel from a social point of view if they remain elevated. And that's the one that's likely to be more sticky. Okay, but certainly if China reopens and normalizes, again, additional pressure will come to bear across that commodity complex. Max, thank you very much for being with us this morning. Pack up your cash and be safe. Max bondues CEO and finder of SG MC capital. Plenty more ahead on today's edition of

regularly popping by for that We were hearing actually from the TfL transport commissioner earlier in the program antibiotic about not only the excitement around the opening of the Elizabeth line

to Bloomberg radio just about an television just about an hour ago from the World Economic Forum in Davos Let's bring in Craig Garland senior market analyst for a mere good morning to you Craig So we have seen the Euro move stronger on the back of those remarks and Christine the guard Did we get much of a hint there were about interest rate risers which has been the big focus of conversation for the ECB Well I think the blog post yesterday was very unusual in that it was so specific Usually she embraces ambiguity you remember the last meeting that maybe the meeting before she was talking about the fact that QE will end sometime in the third quarter and which could be the beginning or the end and the interest rate rise will begin sometime after that which could be anything from a weak to many months This is the process that she's followed quite some time And then the blog post yesterday very much laid everything out plain and simple We are going to the LA hike in July and we're going to see another rate how you take another negative territory in the third quarter probably at the end of the third quarter so September So I think the path is now pretty clear And it's just interesting you wonder what it's taken now for the ECB and leading to suddenly go from inflation is still transitory but still not concerned to suddenly feeling the need to release this very specific outline for interest rates going forward And whether they're going to have to be more aggressive again going into the fourth quarter and the first quarter of next year Yeah do you think she's almost

the pandemic And now we've got the impact across the world from the economic impact from the war in Ukraine We've got high energy prices in many places We've got rising inflation overall And of course

Thank you so much Leon goings with our top stories Now long does the Elizabeth line opens to the public today with many buildings in London being lit up in purple to celebrate running east to west the Elizabeth line has 41 stops ten brand new stations transport for London says it will increase from el capacity in the capital 10% and add 42 billion pounds to the UK economy Has taken 13 years to build though and the whole line won't be fully operational until the autumn not to mention that the eye watering 19 billion pound cost turning us now as Nick Bose who's the CEO of the center for London Nick we are excited though aren't we about the Elizabeth line What does it mean for you in terms of commuting in and around the capital And for London's economy Well I think it's a wet morning in London but I don't think that's going to dampen people's excitement and endeavor as I looked on Twitter already this morning And I can see queues of people at the stations waiting for the first trains which will have set off about 5 minutes ago I mean for my own commute I'll be getting the frame from watch Apple to fire and every morning It's just a couple of stops for me but it will probably not 5 or ten minutes off my journey And I went on the train yesterday I actually privileged to get a kind of sneak preview yesterday and it really was amazing I think London is going to be blown away by the sheer scale and the just power fantastic and reliable and large air conditioned and modern the services compared to quite a lot of the older Victorian tube network If you've been on it already tell us what should we expect from when you walk into the Elizabeth line sections of the new railway Well I think it's the size first of all that will just blow people away As soon as you enter the station the city holds our enormous height and the width of them You know you know what quite a lot of the old tube stations are like often quite narrow the earth cases down particularly all but maybe one escalator down and up But patties and yesterday I mean the 6 escalators just down to the platform the platforms are twice the length of a tube station platform and twice as wide They've got those platform edge doors like you see on the jubilee line There's an indicator board above every one of those doors down when the next trade come in The decor and the kind of design inside is really modern the trains are full size train They've got their own purple market design for those people that know traveling around in London but very famous patterned material used on the seat They've got their own purple one for Elizabeth line and these trains are air conditioned so there'll be none of that awful hot sweaty problems in the summer when it's busy and yesterday I travel from Patterson to canary wharf We didn't stop at any stops but we did it in 12 and a half minute of paddington the canary wharf You couldn't do it in that time in a helicopter I don't think and I don't think I'll ever do it that quick again Just a chance to stop at state and from now on but it was amazing and so smooth You are selling it you are raving about it to be honest I'm now even more excited to get on this train Yes it's going to slash commute times isn't it Not just across the capital because it goes right through the center of London You can stop So Heathrow goes all the way to canary wharf and it goes out to Berkshire and Essex into the home counties Having said that the pandemic's really hit transport for London It's kind of radically altered commuting Does that kind of change anything in terms of the funding and the practicalities of this how we make money from it what impact it will have financially on the capital I think that's a really really important question because the numbers of people using the tube on a daily basis is still only around about 7 70% of what it was pre-pandemic although interestingly over recent weeks it started to go up again further But there are big questions about whether we'll ever get back to what it was before the pandemic or whether the patterns of travel on a daily basis will be the same Will we still have those two really big daily peak time crushes on the tube like we used to be used to have before the pandemic And the fair revenue is absolutely critical for TfL They borrowed nearly 5 billion pounds that construct this line which they are pay back using future fare revenue from the line So it's the numbers of people using it isn't as much as expected There will be questions about how long it will take to pay that money back and whether it will mean elsewhere in the budget Yeah and TfL has been in a funding hole since the pandemic hit the capital Nick Thank you so much for your.

Family like the bananas if they can have a solid street soldier that they can promote who has really good links with mafia families in canada. That's just another pipeline for rockets for drug trafficking for money laundering. You name it all comes with the territory so to have. the project was centered in hamilton. Ontario is the mention about forty five minutes from the american board buffalo and to have that knowledge that members from new york city. We're gonna come up and induct him officially into the banana crime family in canada on canadian soil. The project team had ample opportunity to go in and gives up wire up and said everything on video in the hotel room. And i will say gone where the mafia historically been steeped in ritual and symbolism. Wasn't the creek. The trigger finger in the blood goes on the saint car in the burn the hands by regardless that the fact that members drove all the way up new york city. Hamilton is probably about a nine hour drive. They drove up. It was a fifteen minute ceremony. All caught on video and audio and then they turn around and drawbacks. So did they do. They just like explain the rules to achieve and things like that. I know there's one data patriarca family. They caught one on audio. I've seen some of the transcript and they really after it's over then. They are explained the rules to him. So what did they do him there. He had explained some and that kind of thing. Yeah they were pretty to the point. From memory of the guy's name was damiano zumo and he was acting capital. The banana family at the time and he was reached the point. This is from herein after you are now officially a member of the crime family and you are to report to. This is your skipper. This is these are the rules. You're not to deal with anybody else. Congratulations while you know. An introduced him to the other members that came up in hannam really quickly. I call it. Kind of is like the coles notes version. What you see on tv and shows like the sopranos wasn't like that but it was without a doubt he was officially made. It wasn't official money so it was pretty cool. Yeah really that's at tell me as a documentary filmmaker myself in a person. It's really interesting little audio bits. As any of that available anywhere is that. I'll go into some archive and nobody can ever see it again. Or is it out there and the internet or newspeople guided or anything like that. I know how hard it is to get that kind of for beijing that art. And yeah 'cause i've done it here so i had to file a motion with the court and get a judge to order that they give me a copies of those audiotapes. So what about yours. A lot can happen in terms of media there was. The brothers ended up pleading guilty and so it was in canada. An agent that elevated form of an informant the differences in agent and canada at the trial their identities gonna be exposed and they have to testify in this case because of the guilty pleas the agent never step foot in a courtroom and so it got a little bit of media but it as quickly as it was in the on the headlines. It one away. I think for the most part you know. Obviously if there was a lengthy trial and if some of these mobsters but i know in canada and the united states a lot of them don't want that they want on just get it over with and either plead guilty because believe it or not that will murders still the brothers. Their father they grew up in the mob. The father was underboss boston montreal. And these are the real deal mobsters in canada. We call it put on a government jersey. They'll never be an informant so they just pled guilty in their in jail. Now the guilty pleas were in two thousand seventeen and the majority of the charges. We have criminal organization charters. I know in the united states. It's rico they dismissed those but they got lengthy terms dom got eight years for drugs and is brother. Joey got sixteen because they were all over the world with drug importation the deadly drug Fendt mall just highly highly creating an epidemic of so. There was more new reason. Joey got a longer sentence was that mitigating factor at sentencing. Because he was kind of more. The street guy joey whereas dom was kind of more he was the older of the two brothers and he was the guy that was always in the suit. He was more the business side. Where's joey ran. All the was in charge of the street crews now spell her last name for me. I'm going to look up a little bit about them. V. i. o. l. i. okay. There's like it sounds all right. I didn't want to take a chance. Oh okay great. Is there like any internet stuff out there. News articles about this case the appellate cases or anything like that guys can go out and response this. There's a news media in toronto. Cover the you know the sentencing is. Did you do chapter in your book on this case particular. No ironically known i Adult strictly with under cooperation's. But the nice part about my book is. There is a ton of mafia stuff you know. I also interviewed joe cantamessa retired. Fbi agent in joe and his technical team were responsible for everything that happened with. Joseph pistone the undercover agent. Known as donnie brasco. And the interesting about joe and some of these undercovers. You might have heard or seen documentaries but a lot of them their stories haven't graced the news or papers and joe stories a little bit of their but not a lot. Joe in his prior life was a real telephone repairman. Yeah and he became this. Fbi agent and started in buffalo men went to new york in the mid eighties when the five mafia families in my personal opinion at the height of power and corruption and joe. Installed to hidden microphones in two really key significant places when all the five fbi teams investigating the five mob. Families start to really used rico to their benefit and all the surveillance they did on angelo quack quack ridge area. John gotti's right. Hand man and even paul castellano the boss of bosses of the gambino ours. Ours surveillance it came back and said to joe his tackle team. This place is impossible. There's cameras somebody's always home. So joe literally would put on his new york bell telephone outfit. He'd have his black covert bag and he leary. Was installing hidden microphones. Right in front of angelo rogelio and because he had actually legitimate phone issues but my favorite one was paul castellano and is huge mansion out in staten island. And tommy belotti. Who is his bodyguard and driver answers the door and lets joanne. But the really funny part was cnn and cable tv. That was all the new big thing. And yeah no had all those gadgets and they spent weeks and weeks researching away where they could introduce cable interference to cast lanos television and it was brilliant. This is these. Are these out of the box ideas. These agents come up with so joe and his partner. They had their fbi van dressed up to look like a cable van and joe's in the same blue coveralls but now he's posing as the cable guy and he just showed up because they knew somebody came to fix their cable so they were happy to see. Joe the cable guy. And as joe's on the phone with belotti right beside him allow thinks cantamessa has called the cable company. But he's on the phone with his fellow agent down the street as joe's inside tappan on the tv the agent in the van down the street is introducing interference to the tv. Actually gets tommy belotti to hold the flashlight and shine it in the tv while joe cantamessa is putting in a hidden microphone and if we fast forward did bugs that were planted by joe at quacks house and paul castellanos all the stuff that disclosure that was coming up because jerry was godley that whole crew were involved in heroin and kost lana wanted to hear these tapes and godley and ribero and the whole crew. Sammy the bull grennell knew that the second the boss. Here's the tapes about the heroin trafficking. They're all dead men. Yeah and this is actually led man. Yeah all of them. Have been dead. Gary the coolest part is like. I don't wanna see anyone get hurt but this is really joe's work is what led that snowball effect down the mountain to that meeting at sparks. Steak where big. Paul castellano rolls up with tommy body and unbeknownst to them granola and john gotti had planned a whack them now before they even got on the restaurant. And that's you know. The rest is history as they say it interesting. You know For one of a nail as you lost as it says in of one little bug the whole rest. The future changes really. They hadn't got those tapes of quack quack talking openly and say he liked just ran his mouth all the time. How about this drug operation. That paul castellano would certainly had him killed in my involved with it. The whole bunch of things would have been different after that really at is a heck of a story. That's in your book and other great stories like that you know. We had similar deal in kansas city. Those guys they've got balls man. Those dudes do that those black bag dudes agents they got and let's tell you what we got this. We know there's gonna be a meet with some people from las vegas and our crime boss next avella and his brother carl and their underboss tafea. They'd know that's common cause they're on another wire near planning as me and they've been plan for a couple of weeks so but you only got a couple of weeks again in. This house is right in the middle of the italian neighborhood. So they mess up her phone because it's in a relative's house. They messed up her phone. So i talked to the guy that he's a friend of mine. Actually i used to live here in kansas city. He goes in knocks on the door. So you know there's phone problem. Oh yeah yeah. Can you help me out. So you know ones out at the box and one's inside ange though my friend goes inside and then the other comes in. He's the one that's going to do some bug planning so woman. It says made women's whose house are get a meeting. And so he takes her and she's in the kitchen and he says what do you cook and that smells really good. So she takes him in the kitchen. He's like getting the recipe for chile. Right down all the details of the resume while the other agents had their which interestingly enough didn't work right it wasn't picking up enough and so they had to go back in and they couldn't do the same thing again. They didn't feel like so. They knew that she was going to be going out one day so they got a car just like hers and they put a woman driving. That really didn't look like her but had on laco kind of a big code. It was winter and a hat or something and put to agents and lay down the floorboard. And they've got her garage codes so she drove out the neighborhood. They drove in open the garage door and went in and closed the garage door behind him. And then we're back in and planted some more bikes to get better reception. So it was. I tell you something so you got stories like that and that book i tell you what folks that would be a really interesting book stephen. We've been hearing about forty minutes.

"new york bell" Discussed on WHAS 840 AM
"Then the trumps walk back up the steps and as the helicopter flies away with the Obama family. And that's what we normally do. We're not going to see that this year, Jody doubling it, So it's a weird situation. Don't you just put in a little while ago? We're not going So for the first time, and I guess a few 100 years. It's been a long time since we've not had someone there. Well, no there because we've had presidents die in office, but nonetheless, uh, we think just ready I think I did it. I just read, I think was 18 96 when they were living, Terry, you know, I mean, like you said, some have died in there. But when they were living, I think it's like 18 96 that a transition from president to president done in a graceful, elegant, dignified way. And the fact that the trumps were treated so well and then he's pouting about this thing in that and not going and a lot of people say Well, he's not welcome, but still, it's a face we put on for the world anyway. If if you have a couple minutes sometimes, folks this go on Twitter and I tweeted C span and it's there's no narrator It's just the Trump saying goodbye hugging the Obama's as they climb on the military, the Marine helicopter and then they give him a ceremonial flight around Washington one last time and then off they go. And then they're allowed to use their force one to go to wherever their destination is in the new president takes office, and that's just where we won't see that. All right, let's jump to sports. Jodi's here You also true you also tweeted the Alex Trebek final Show tonight, Terry, You tweeted that in just a few minutes ago, and you know we'll have to get this. We're gonna have to get him on the show at some point, when when our world comes down, But the New York Bell women's public address announcer at the KFC Yum Center. Is Doug will him who was on jeopardy on the February 1918 of 2019? He finished third is the Eastern high school athletic directors spent 17 years. I'm sorry, 23 years in the J. C. P s school system, he was announced today as the new P A announcer replacing Sean Moth for women's games. Lance McGarvey announced yesterday for men's game. So now they have that in there, but But, yeah, Doug, don't get to spend a little time with Alex and Alex's final show airing tonight. So it's a big weekend in the NFL. Terry, You want to talk a little NFL football because it's so horrible. You tonight, you here and I jumped on the Bears and the Saints first. So you take it from there. What? You pit the bears. They're his bears, Jody. I want the bears to win because I don't want to play the Saints again. You just setting up bad karma T you really are. It really is It's totally setting up back. My vision does not have any outcome on has no effect on the outcome. So what did anything in the bear states game? The Saints or 10 Point favorite? I think, um, if there were if there were fans Allowed in the place. I would I would say saints by a lot. I do think because there's not crowd there. I think it's a much closer game. I think the Saints win probably don't cover and I think we get the over which is 48 in in that game, So I think I think the Saints are gonna win, but it will be closer than most people feel like the other game. That's intriguing to me. And and really is it that closest it's the closest spread. I think of the weekend is Seattle in the Rams. Um, Saturday. It's the afternoon game on Fox. It's AH, three point spread the Seahawks with that. I'm kind of back and forth on that one guys. That's the one that I really don't have a great conviction because I don't think either one of them are all that great, and I don't think either one of them win beyond this week. I'm going to say I'm going to say the Seahawks just because because they got a little bit advantage being at home. They were better in the first half of the season. That's the thing about the Seahawks. I don't know where their mo mentum has gone. They still have a coach who knows his way around the playoffs, and that's helpful. Yeah, that's gonna be a It's going to be an ugly game Tow watch. Neither of those teams come in playing great. Neither of them played great when they play each other. For some reason that l. A offense can't get going against Seattle. That l. A defense is pretty good if I had to pick Since we don't know what the quarterback situation is for the Rams. A guess you lean with the better quarterback and I'll take Russ Wilson and the Seahawks. All right, and I'll take the Rams Ralph, then, uh, just because and the over unders 42 a half and I'm gonna go under on that one, because I think there's a lot of sputtering going on there, too. I think that one could be 13 to 9 at the end of the cave. No, it definitely could be A That could be a a struggle for both of those two teams to score. All right, Well, we'll hold the line there and get this more games little bit later on the show. Is that all right? You got any other sports notion you throw in there? Jodie? Yeah, just just a couple of other quick ones. Tommy's sort of passed away at the age of 93. He is the long was the longtime Dodgers manager won two world Syriza almost right at 1600 Games. 1599 career games also With three Ohio State will get to Miami tomorrow. Alabama headed there tonight.
