You little less stiffler and more knocking at steph. You know what i mean. Would you take the browns and survivor this week. I don't know what you mean like a you talking about talk about it in the tribal council about this isn't gambling. I mean it kind of eilly seen the rest of your choices. But no i'd stay away from it. You think the bears could upset him as kind of one of my question defense that just turn joe over three straight. Times is showing up right. Who's pass catching for the browns better than the bengals. Whose past kitchen for the browns. Chris like you said jarvis's out we don't do pills into the king of false equivalency since you walked. Browns aren't the bengals. The browns are not the bengals. The browns are a better team in the bengals. But what i'm saying but they can also show up and pick off baker mayfield a couple of times. They can come up with their takeaways that they frequently do ingest feels makes enough place. David montgomery starts running the ball. They can win this game. Come on there's gotta be other scenarios where you're thinking. The team has less of a chance. No i know. I'm just asking if you would take them. I mean buffalo denver. Who's buffalo blind again home against the football team. Oh boy i'd stay away from heineke to brel. Who knows what that guy hitting people with the heineke who knows talk. who knows. so you're under survivor. Pool is that what you're telling me right now. I didn't know that you were yeah cardinals on the road. I'm going. i'm taking denver at home against the jets. But i'm just saying like you know if you want to avoid that. It's funny the first. The first road trip on during the season i took for. Nfl network was the opener of the two thousand three season to green bay. Green bay and lambofield just redone a lot of their stadium. Just renovated quite a bit. And paul tagliabue's was invited to go out and be there. I guess he was the commissioner. He went to lambofield to start the season and joe brown his right hand man. The keeper of the flame been there since the road road zelda's joe brown. Who handed out. The rexel graft copied Press release announcing the merger between the afl nfl. That's how long you've been with the nfl. On one of those crank copied assuming cal after they. So joe brown. And he's a new yorker and he you know i think saw in me inability to bust my stones from the very beginning and i was invited to fly out on the commissioners jet. I did fancy. And i flew out there. You can look it up chris. Two thousand three home opener for the green bay packers. The first thing i ever did for. Nfl network was as a road. Trip was I went to the pro football hall of fame induction ceremony that august because it was the fiftieth anniversary of the hall of fame Of the class of i ever hall of fame week. One thousand one vikings. And so you know i. It was the fiftieth anniversary of the hall of fame. Sixty three and it was two thousand three and everyone was back and they wanted you know the nfl is like go there and meet people and whatever and i was like what is this network. We're hearing about so. That was the first thing i did but in that opener i flew out and i watched christopher the minnesota vikings christened the new building where the renovated building. I watched him. Chris and i think dante culpepper had a day in two thousand three. Do you have the statistics on the minnesota one. Thirty to twenty five beat farm and the three touchdown did barf had four picks. Oh they had a day. It was it was. That score. Does not really indicate randy moss. He had a day to nine catches on one. Hundred fifty are yes. Oh it was quite a day for the vikings to go in a green bay. Far new lambeau places going crazy. So i get back on a plane as if we're getting back on the plane we'd get in there. Joe brown says to me is the doors shut. He says to me so rich. Did you have the packers in your survivor pool today. Fully knowing that. I'm not supposed to be in a survivor pool anymore. I'm like what are you talking about. Joe and nodded his head like good answer but right in front of tag label. You try to trip me up. Those days are over it. You know so when you say to me who's in the survivor pool. That's i'm like this travel council. But what are you talking about jeff.

It went seven games but sale Lewis look like they had it early on in Boston in game seven. And it was all they needed. The Bruins did get a goal weight. So they'd send their home crowd off the off season which is crazy. I mean Stanley Cup we Gary Bettman we blew Gary Bettman for really no reason at all other than the fact that it's become tradition and some people love it. So people are just kind of over it. I think you know, in this market here in Phoenix were grateful to Gary Bettman. He's this team here. Paul Tagliabue to do that for the Browns. David Stern did deal for the Seattle SuperSonics but Gary Putman has kept hockey in the desert at expanded of the desert to Las Vegas team that we saw last year's Stanley Cup final. What a what a series what a what a story that they were January third. If trailed every team in the NHL in points bounce back to reach the playoffs. I mean it was it was questionable for a while there.

Seven games in, you know, they're celebrating their celebrating in Boston a in the gardens, not the act. It's the garden, but the other celebrating at the Boston Garden in front of disappointed Boston crowd. And you know what was the final game seven because it was a runaway late. I think it was four nothing. It was he might have three nothing and the Bruins put went in, and they made a kind of interesting there for a few minutes. But this was Saint Louis game to win. Say Luis would've liked to close it out in game six but nobody was winning on their own mice came one Boston wins on their home ice for two to game four the blues weighed in Saint Louis, four to two not one other game of this series was a four to five all and not one other game in this series did the home team went five of the seven games went to the visiting team was the blues. Three two overtime in game two broods all over it. I thought the series over bridge, go to one. They end up opportunity to go three one, you know again in Saint Louis. Add every time he lost you'll be lost in game one. He bounced back yelled, Igal, the Pru institute goals, Jordan Bennington. Gets destroyed in game three holds them to goals again in game four. Game five the blues win to two one gives up five goals in game six year. Like oh, you can't even start him in game seven. Berbie starts them, and he plays brilliant. You know, for. The about fifty minutes, but fifty five minutes there's like six minutes left. When the Bruins scored I'm not doing this in real time of doing this long after the fact that, you know, I got to joint, I didn't have to think about what I was gonna talk about the night that they won the Wednesday out of out of been on the air.

"It to the. You know, the the dynasty the likes of which I don't think we're ever going to see again, quite frankly, this many AFC championship games in a row ten Super Bowls. I don't think you're ever going to see that. So that obviously is a big story line, Sean McVeigh Jared Goff. Great storylines. Also, you know, you've got the young coach and the young quarterback going against the veteran coach and their veteran quarterback that couldn't be better two really good running games Sony. Michelle is going to be a star in this game. I really do you have C J Anderson and Todd Gurley on the other side. So I think if we get a close game, which I hope we do we could have one of the most compelling super Super Bowls in a long long time. Sean McManus is my guest. Sean got a couple of minutes left. I want to ask you back in one thousand nine hundred eight you lead CBS corporations efforts to bring the NFL back to CBS. Yup. What do you remember about that time? And how significant was it for the company to be broadcasting NFL games? Once again, I remember that when CBS lost the NFL the network went from being the number one rated network to being. The third rated network. We had lost a lot of our prestige. The sports division was even though they had a lot of good events like the massacres and the final four the sports division was kind of floundering and it became evident that without the NFL. It's tough to have a fully-fledged operating television network. So I worked for solid year with my number two Tony Petit in figuring out a way to get the NFL back to CBS. It was I always remember the day that we finally got it and I got assigned piece of paper from Paul Tagliabue. Who's the Commissioner brought up to my office? I saw the sign piece of paper. It was surreal. I mean, I couldn't actually believe that we had the NFL back on CBS. Oh for for me. When I look at my career. That's the most satisfying moment of my career.

"Pardon the interruption? But I'm Mike will bond if eleven below zero in Chicago today's Tony's shoutout to all my people in the greatest city in the world. I'm Tony Kornheiser. He says from Los Angeles. Well, I mean, you know, we got in the brand news near there's no bulls news. Tom. I gotta be with the news is Tony. I'm right here. I think the news is in Atlanta. I think most people think is no news in Atlanta. I think there's I think there's here, you know, what I know news. I got him my car today and was sixteen when I got on. My car is not as bad even see sixteen sixteen sixteen x dot a wind chill around. I don't know eight nine not as bad as the mid west. I was in the morning. So we're going to TI boys and girls today's episode. Does LeBron deserve a fine. How interesting should the Lakers being Kyrie Irving, and it's free agency about to college football. But we begin today with the long awaited NFL Commissioner's press conference at the Super Bowl this afternoon. Roger Goodell finally publicly addressed the terrible, no call that got the Rams into the Super Bowl head of the saints in Goodell said quote, it's a play that should have been called. We understand the frustration. Saints fans feel whenever the officiating is part of discussion. It's not a good outcome for us. We know that. But we also know our officials are Uman we will look at instant replay again, but technology is not going to solve all of those issues unquote will bond did Cadel sufficiently address this issue. No, no, he's sufficiently addresses very few if any issues, Tony, I'm he addressed it. And he sort of said what you knew he was say, which was the. Minimum. You know, he did that. And he did only at a regularly scheduled commissioners conference ten days to do this didn't do Jack. But what what upset me more was Roger Goodell after knowledge ING the role that Atlanta where the Super Bowl is that venue has played in the great long struggle for civil rights. He then didn't take any opportunity to address the situation with African American coaches and their plight this off season, and Tony it and can be to the point where I think he is just acting with it with a lack of courage. I mean, either his unwillingness or his inability to address this straight on straight on like an adult who's responsible for league. It comes off to me as gutless, and I turn the channel. I don't wanna watch him. I can't watch him fail to address issue after issue and just talk around it or or or sidestep, and it just I find it disgraceful. I'm gonna go back to the first part of the question. Oh, that's specific thing about the saints. And the Rams for a second. It was disappointing to me because I felt you waited eleven days for this. You couldn't acknowledge this publicly. All you basically said was what you were going to say eleven days ago. I mean, my my problem with it is that Roger Goodell always talks about the great fans. The league has if you watch press conference, and I understand why bailed on it turned into. What if you watched it? He would have talked about our great fans. Our great fans there was one hundred percent unanimity in this the fans of the league deserved a public explanation from Hayes Commissioner immediately. That's what you're gonna do. I understand. You don't have a plan going forward. I understand. It's a bad look for the league. But you didn't say anything today that you couldn't or should set eleven days. Go mike. I've watched a lot of commissioners over a long time as you two of them. Stand out to me two things really stood out. One was Fay. Vincent, you know, taking up for Bharti Amati saying about Pete Rose. You never getting back. You never. And one and one was Paul Tagliabue's saying to boogie Benson. You're not moving out of New Orleans after Katrina. You're not doing it. We're keeping this city alive for football. And I don't see that ever. I don't think attach themselves to any need to be accountable as long as everybody's making money. And they're clam games. I guess all there..

"And what are you allowed them to do? And you see obviously, it's paid off. Now, let's turn to this issue concerning. The cardinals not really an issue. It's a big day for them they received or Michael Bidwell receives the Paul Tagliabue award for his work in hiring and working with minorities. But at the same time the cardinals as we mentioned they came under fire for the Kingsbury higher for dismissing Steve Wilks after one year. What did you make of the Fritz Pollard alliances decision to give the award to the? Cardinals who face some of that criticism? Orion. Like, you said a very kind of curious timing clearly the Wilkes decision after blowing firing him after only one year was not something that really resonated. Well, with a lot of the black coaches feeling was if you only got one year why them to begin with now I will say this about the cardinals. They do have a history of really strong inclusion practices within their hiring. If remember Danny green was their head coach he was an African American rod graves with general manager at the time. He was African American. So they have had a history of of being very in tune with the times and with trying to improve diversity within their ranks. But it does because of the timing of the Wilkes make this kind of thing. That's very interesting. Is this the first power lines? Maybe sending a message saying it's not about what's happening right now. It's about a collective body of work in terms of giving out these kinds of a wards and weaponising the work of inclusion with minorities. Well, this man, this is definitely a kind of a lifetime achievement award. Not based on what happened this year. I mean, the the Wilkes thing no matter what anybody wants say about who deserves keep jobs, we've doesn't he only got one year. So if you're African American coach gets one year and the Fritz power lines, which is in charge of compliance of the Rooney rule, at least helping the league with that gives the award to the cardinals you say, well, how can that happen? But if we talk about a lifetime achievement award throughout their organization, not just in football ops. But in other areas, they have had a commitment to diversity. All right. So one more thing you're there at the Super Bowl right now. You were there. I assume at the opening night last night. What's it like? It's really not for the media is really a marketing tool for Lee. And that's fine. The fans come out to the cheerleaders there. They do the interviews. It's really not for people like me, though, they still let us come. So we can do some work. In addition everything else they're trying to do. But for the fans, it's a great experience. You have to stand there next to somebody who's giving like blankets and things like that to Tom Brady and Bill Belichick that must make it hard for you to do your job. So what do what do you think the league does get out of this? Well, I mean, it's a great marketing tool you do it in obviously it's in the city where the game is being played. And you have the fans come in. And it kind of kicks off the week. It's it's jumps way to jump start the week start excitement about the week. And you have media that's not just traditional media covering the NFL. You mentioned the thing. You just mentioned there are kids getting players assigned balls. There's a TV entertainment shows who are trying to skits. So look at helps the league it's all publicity for the league. And that's what the league once. But it's not for the traditional media covers the game. All right Jason. But just stuck it out. Anyway, I appreciate that. Jason good to see you. Well, up next a star, turn by the son a bump.

"Next on many of these same CBS sports radio stations. Jodi will get you through the evening with all the football going on as well. And it's probably never too early to talk horses with with Jody. I always I I mean, I listened to Jodi one midnight a car and all the time anyway, but. You know when it comes to the horse game. There are few better than Jody MAC. I always listen for those pigs come triple crown time. And now that I'm near or really working in a state that has legalized sports betting. Not you couldn't bet on the horses before. But now, it's really front of mine. I mean, hell, I'm I'm telling you the line is the game's going on on the colts and where they're out on the money line. Even though they were down fourteen nothing. Let's get back to the phones. Eight five five two four CBS. Ronnie is in DC Ronnie, thanks for hanging. You're next on the gresh show on CBS, sports radio, gresh. Thank you. I really appreciate it. Sure, I just want to push back on this whole look. Disclaimer, I'm not a patriots fan. Born and raised in New Orleans Saints fan, but. Is this people talk about the flight gate like it was such a big deal teams that year, but nippy football by placing them near space heaters. But that was the game between the Vikings and the Panthers I believe it was a few weeks before the playoffs started. And all the BP of officiating. Did was come down and say, I informed the teams that hey, you can't do this. Hey, this is not proper. You. Can't you can't manipulate the air pressure? And football's you can't relate the temperature or anything like that. It was no big deal. I don't understand this fixation on why Brady and the New England Patriots. And Bill Belichick have a target on their back every time they do something. I it's it's just it's mind blowing. And really, it's I think it's quite disingenuous. I think actually undermined seeing of the game who teams unequally to be honest and to the NFL to like you keep saying multibillion dollar potentially twenty billion dollar industry and a few years. It just doesn't make sense that. They would honest one team one way for doing something in another team at another matter. I don't get it. It doesn't make sense and above the hearing a thought Ronnie, thank you, man. Look, it's as simple as the transparency from the commissionership. I think in Ronnie makes a good point. There's stuff that isn't a big deal in the year that the Deflategate happened. Right. You had Aaron Rogers telling a radio show, I like them over inflated. Okay. How would he know that unless he was doing it bright? So from that end, I look at this. And I think to myself what really matters what doesn't. But the purview of the public changes win the Commissioner makes it a big deal off of Rani said in terms of heat and balls around space heaters. Do you know what would have happened under Paul Tagliabue on Monday morning, every coach every general manager every owner would have had a note, whether it's a letter sent to them via FedEx or via Email where Paul Tagliabue's would say, here's what we observed over the weekend where reminding you that this is illegal now, everyone is put on notice. And this is why it's a problem. Look the reason Bill Belichick stepped in with spy gate was going to be honest about it is because Bill Belichick thought he he him. Right. Nobody else net organization him. He had an interpretation of the rule that he. Felt was different than with the way the rule was intended. So he tried to argue semantics and he was dead wrong. And then what happened at the beginning of that year is too wide blew up because there was a memo sent out reminding people not to do it. Well, Bill bell, check arrogantly embrace unle thought even though that was sent out that he's still had an interpretation of the rule that if there was ever an issue. He would be able to argue it any couldn't and it was wrong. And by the way, they took away a first round pick. But see, here's the here's the part. It's really interesting about that. It ends up happening in Denver a couple years later and. If the NFL had a brain in their head. If you go back, and you remember that whole spy gate here. They had San Francisco's first round pick. They took away New England's first round pick. So you know, what was the real f you to the NFL? The fact that Bill Belichick and the patriots had the number seven pick. They traded down to number ten got more currency. In fact, I think they traded with New Orleans, I think and they ended up. Getting Gerard mayo. Who played for almost ten years and was a pro bowler a couple of times over. So they still had a first round pick. They should have taken away the higher one. And that's what really made NFL owners mad. So why was there? This renegade Justice, especially when it came to deflate gate is because there were owners whose rear ends were still chapped over the fact that even though the patriots were punished they took away the lower pick. And if you notice when they put the penalty into New England, they put the caveat in there that if they own a higher pickets the higher pick that is the penalty. So even the NFL is chasing their tail on some of this stuff. And again, I'm not going to sit here and defend them because Belcher clearly screwed up on that one. There's no question. But again, I'll read it from the website your team, cheats dot com, and the first thing it says, so you think there's only one NFL team the cheats, you're wrong all thirty two NFL team sheet. Yup. Even your favorite team is a dirty cheater. But since they're not that good. Nobody really cares. Two very interesting way of looking at it and the team with the lowest amount of instances. That can be pointed to according to this little graphic that I'm looking at right now like Arizona has twelve stains on the resume. Houston has sixteen stains on the resume. The jets, by the way in the AFC. Have fifty one Denver's got fifty three that you can comb through New England's at twenty seven. They're right in the media part of the curve, some of it is because some of these teams have been in existence longer. Or maybe everybody is looking for an advantage. And it's only a matter of time before the NFL figures it out and puts a stop to some of this stuff. Maybe that's just it. Eight five five two one two four CBS these games to talk about with you. And all of the new coaches in the NFL is disturbing. What is going on across the league relative to the way? And why certain people are being hired. I'll close the show with that. And you but first let's get our final update of the day from our guy, Chris lopresti. Sports. Play diplomats. So far Kansas.

There are few better than Jody MAC. I always listen for those picks come triple crown time. And now that I'm near or really working in a state that has legalized sports betting. Not you couldn't bet on the horses before. But now, it's really front of mine. I mean, hell I'm telling you the line is the game's going on on the colts where they're out on the money line. Even though they were down fourteen nothing. Let's get back to the phones. Eight five five two one two four CBS Ronnie is in DC Ronnie, thanks for hanging. You're next on the gresh show on CBS, sports radio, gresh. Thank you, really. Appreciate it. I I just want to push back on this whole look. Disclaimer, I'm not a patriots fan. Born and raised in Orleans Saints fan, but bottom line is this people talk about the flight gate like it was such a big deal teams that year football by placing them near space heaters. But that was the game between the Vikings and the Panthers I believe it was a few weeks before the playoffs started. And all the VP of officiating. Did was come down and say, I informed the teams that hey, you can't do this. Hey, this is not you can't you can't manipulate the air pressure and footballs. You can't relate the temperature or anything like that. It was no big deal. I don't understand the spic station on why Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. And Bill Belichick have a target on their back every time they do something. I it's it's just it's mind blowing and really it's I think it's quite disingenuous. I think actually undermine seeing of the game two teams unequally to be honest and to the NFL to like you keep saying multibillion dollar potentially twenty billion dollar industry in a few years. It just doesn't make sense that they would punish one team one way for doing something in another team in another matter. I don't get it. It doesn't make sense and above the hearing thought Ronnie, thank you, man. Look, it's as simple as the transparency from the commissionership, I think and Ronnie makes a good point there stuff that isn't a big deal in the year that the Deflategate happened. Right. You had Aaron Rogers telling a radio show, I like them over inflated. Okay. How would he know that unless he was doing it? Right. So from that end, I look at this. And I think to myself what really matters, and what doesn't. But the purview of the public changes. When the Commissioner makes a big deal off of Rani said in terms of heat and balls around space heaters. Do you know what would have happened under Paul Tagliabue on Monday morning, every coach every general manager every owner would have had a note, whether it's a letter sent to them via FedEx or via Email where Paul Tagliabue's would say, here's what we observed over the weekend where reminding you that this is illegal now, everyone is put on notice.

"There's an old wine. From the great wrestling manager. Bobby the brain Heenan, God rest, his soul. And Bobby the brain Heenan used to say when if he can lose if you must but always cheat. The worst thing that the NFL did. Was allow these kinds of stories to get out because in the nineties everybody thinks that maybe the NFL was on the up and up. The difference was the Commissioner then Paul Tagliabue was better at not bringing situations like this to the forefront. But again, if you would like to educate yourself, rich, go to your team, cheats dot com, I'm not taking the patriots off the hook not one bit. But if you think spy gate matters as to why they gotta buy this year. Then you're nuts. And apparently Tom Brady last year who won MVP and had a great season and this year by Brady standards was still really good. But not what he wants was. I guess Tom Brady's 2017 MVP was luck. And they must have been doing something else with the football. Right. Rich. Really? I mean, they really I'm sure you and your crack staff are going to get to it. Everybody cheats. Let's not act like this pollyanna as I said, it's a fifteen billion dollar industry and on its way to maybe being a twenty five billion dollar industry every year. You don't think people are looking for advantages to get ahead. Are you nuts? I love the NFL. You think everybody out there isn't on or that a bunch of guys that are out. There aren't on something even if it is an anabolic steroids, which is the stuff that is definitely band. And I know that because I know my history from nineteen Ninety-seven.

"Powered by more than twenty seven hundred journalists and analysts in. One hundred twenty countries, I'm Susanna Palmer. This is Bloomberg. This is the business of sports from Bloomberg radio with scouts Michael Barr. Evan Novi William. Thank you very much for joining us. We hear each and every week were you at the same time talking to the biggest names in sports. And today, we're speaking with Frank photo partner at sixteen w marketing, he's a leader in the sports marketing industry, having consulted for more than half of the teams in the NFL and negotiated record-breaking partnerships in sponsorship licensing and merchandising Frank. Let's talk about one of these upstart professional sports leagues, the XFL relaunching. They're playing in the spring. So they're not competing with the NFL, but they are playing in NFL cities New York, Tampa, Houston, L, A, etc. Is that the right approach? I actually had a conversation with offer luck about that. At the national football foundation, college football, same dinner, and he said Frank, you know, I asked him about it. And he said, you know, we think our fans are going to be the die hard football fans. And where else would you find die hard football fans? But in the cities where NFL was played. I think that's questionable. But we'll see how they are going to play in the spring, which is great. I think there's still a desire for football, particularly in the month of February after Super Bowl ends. But I think the F going into markets that are, you know, great cities and good football cities. But not NFL cities is a smart move. And I wanna talk about something about the emotion of a product that you were with you assisted the New Orleans Saints post, Hurricane Katrina, and you hope secure millions of dollars in revenue during that time and the future of the team was in doubt of being in Louisiana, not because the city didn't love him. But because of all of the horrific stuff that was going down there. Can you take us through that time? What that was like. Yeah. You know, I'm getting choked up again goosebumps just says you're talking about. Not that I have tremendous emotions about that whole entire experience. It's one of the reasons, frankly, I really believe firmly that Paul Tagliabue's should be pro football hall of fame. But that's another subject Paul was instrumental in in in making should happen for the saints in for the dome. You know, I was on the first plane down with Roger Goodell who was sued Commissioner at the time, Paul Tagliabue, and gene Upshaw. Mr. Benson was gonna move the team to San Antonio because up to that time. It didn't have a hell of a lot of corporate support the city of New Orleans all of its key business people. And so on just said if the Superdome goes dark and the saints move away, our city could actually die or city could really go away. Because it'll send a message to the world that our our city is dark, and our city has has died, and what went on inside that stadium which was horrific. It was horrific the police actually left because they feared for their own lives. So what went on? There was just horrible. But I'm Paul stood on the floor of the stadium and said the dog Thornton. Can we need to have this open for next season December and he wanted to make sure he wanted to get an open by September. And doug. Just not possible we have holes in the roof. The place was just the all the the floor was ripped up. The place was destroyed and Paul said, well, what if what if I go to all the NFL owners, and I get them to kick in. So we can get this Sparta, and Dr well that would help a lot so Paulin all the owners had them contribute a million dollars each to get the renovation started. And then we worked with FEMA relentlessly after that, and ultimately spent one hundred eighty million dollars to renovate the place, and when we reopened we couldn't get it. Open for the first game this season. It was a little story that just shows you some sometimes scratch your head. I was working with the NFL folks who are in charge of network broadcasts. And I said, you know, we gotta get their first game on television on Monday night. And they were like, well, they're not so good. I was like, are you kidding me? Wait a minute. Wait a minute. You telling me the TV people at the NFL didn't understand the compelling narrative of getting the saints game on TV still work there. No, okay. Good. That's what that's what I'm telling you. So little known secrets, but I want I won't name names with your probably look up the dates anyway. But we got Monday night, and you know, well up with New Orleans performers in. You too in just the whole thing and the return when we were outside that stadium. People started gathering on the concourse four or five hours before the gates open just in tears, just so excited, and you know, one of the most emotional times in my professional career. I was there with all the folks outside and it was just tugging celebration. Just one of the greatest days in my in my career. So we there Miami when they won the Super Bowl. I was absolutely absolutely. No. I'm a big New York Giants fan, but I've got a place in my heart for the saints forever up next our conversation with sixteen w marketing partner Frank Bruno turns to.
