It figures depend exceptional one one that doesn't need any buildup Anne build up and he was dead dead on arrival. Is that how you talk normally now GonNa talk normal. Just be a little difficult but I don't have anthony when in my top ten or in my top fifteen es about number twenty on my list list and you're nonexistent Lewis past yes he mythical and again. Maybe I just have this bias because Anthony Lynn what he the areas of coaching that he struggles into the ones I pay the most attention to so I'm probably a little bit too harsh but having him I'm in the top ten anyone who watched the chargers lose the Denver at home last year. If you disagree with me and you think he should be in the top ten go back and watch that game and I think you'll come back and say Anthony Lynn does not belong in the top ten. He knew what's funny. It reminds me of his list. I don't know if you know this about W.. F. Slash e Lor but the intercontinental title was awarded initially but they said they had a tournament in Puerto Rico that never existed and I know that Dan for years was that Bruno San Martino the guy that just spoke no the first intercontinental titleholder Bruno would've taken the second title Alice Pedro Morales was actually but page or didn't have the you know he was the title holder when Ivan coal off beat Bruno. There's actually tape of that on you to the whole Bruno I think had been champion. Seven years eight years hadn't been be when he got by Ivan Call Coal off the garden and they have tape on his you. Could I mean like the old saying you your opinion. You could hear a pin. Drop is how as would say is literally literally it just it was hush and it was like they couldn't it was like seeing like Superman you know fall stumble and fall it was unbelievable but then would they tend to do in wrestling is they have a bad guy win and he holds the title of the Iron Sheik did I against back then and then the next good gap comes in W._B._Z.. Style that's what they've done but again it was pager. I think if I'm correct at sounds right I remember T- Tito Santana long time intercontinental champion Macho got it from Macho. He's tough I could spend about a whole year just going through Macho. I spent many nights going through old promos of his all right eight so fast what's next. Oh so you know I agree with you. I mean he's bought him half the League in my opinion I Brad Whitford big disagreement. I'm GonNa go with Mike Zimmer who is number ten in the N._F._l.. Dot Com list. I have Mike Zimmer much higher tire and it just comes down to this. If you blindly bet on Mike you got a much higher too right yeah number five but you agree with the La- no worse yeah I agree with the list that works so I mean if you blindly bet on Mike Zimmer since he became a head coach in two thousand fourteen you have hit about sixty five percent against the spread. That's better than anybody including Zimmer. You make money you well. You've made money in the past doesn't mean you're GonNa make money in the.

We're actually going to start with some news from the old school wrestling. One of the biggest stars of the territory days. Former WWF world intercontinental and tag champion. Pedro Morales has passed away. One of the most popular wrestlers of his time, especially in Puerto Rico. Do you have any memories of him, Chris because I think around the time you, and I have a similar sort of time line, and he would have been we were a little bit past his prime. Do you have any memories of him at all? I remember that when I started reading up on the history a little bit and realizing that he was as big a deal as he was remember being surprised because I remembered him as being like a mid card guy on his way out when I was kid. He really represents to me that old school New York territory thing of just exploit the fact that this is a very ethnically diverse area that we need a Puerto Rican champion. Let's do it Bruno Sammartino he'll get everybody little Italy to buy a ticket. I like the old territory style of who are the big ethnic groups. Let sell them tickets by pushing a champion very hard from that ethnic group. I think there is something sort of like inappropriate, by modern standards. But that in the sixties and seventies was kind of like, all right? That was New York. It was an immigrant city with different pockets of working class people and think he represents sense such beautiful way. And also, I mean, you know, just like, yeah, man, I'll buy your shit.

But with their great family. I mean, they'll take care of her and she'll do fine. But it's a blow to to anybody who had a chance to see him for all the years that I did just phenomenal. I always said that Larry could have went to any territory he wanted to back in that day, and he could have taken over the number one spot, and he just he didn't wanna travel, and that was the primary reason way that he and Harley race eventually split up because Larry didn't wanna travel and Harley did, and we know what happened with highly. I mean, he became a legend. But Larry is more more local, of course. But definitely a huge Dame. He wrestled in Japan, the numerous trips, he was in Australia. New zealand. He wrestled a lot down in Amarillo, Texas for the funk brothers in the sixties and just a great. He had a WWF. Stint down back in early seventies. When Pedro Morales was champion. And that's when that's when he came back here in the seventies. And he had grown his red beard and became Larry the accent and pretty boy was gone, and he was an Alabama face. And we all remember that famous. Save on all star wrestling when he came out and saved at Greg ganja from the beating that he and Bruns L were getting from Bach. Rankle Stevenson, Bobby Heenan, and that was the turning point for Larry to be a baby face. So it's just a great talent. I mean, really going to be missed you mentioned that the baby face turn talk about just a few of the other highlights and standout aspects of his run with Harley race described the dynamic and the chemistry between them in the ring on promos. Maybe a match that you remember in particular that define them. Well, you know, sadly are not sadly, I I'm proud that. I can say I remember all their matches from the from the twin cities when they got together. Larry head Larry had went to Texas. He was working down for Amarillo and a little bit for Fritz von Erich in the early part of nineteen sixty three and or late part of sixty three and early sixty four. And when he came back for a very short time, you you. He was coming back so rougher tougher bigger Larry Hennig, and he started that feud with Verne ganja that he was now better than his trainer that he was better that Verne was jealous of him. And that you know, he was gonna put the champion in the in the nursing home and take its title. And it was a it was a hometown feud both of them being from Robin stale. And it was a natural. You know that the students and the teacher. I mean, those are things that wrestling was made of many territories. And so when he first came back they introduced him for short. Time as big red Hennig red hair that's the big where the red came in. And then in in the fall of sixty four he hooked up with Harley race who was only twenty one years old at the time. Now, Larry, and I talked about this one time when we were chatting he said, you know, he's sought in Harley race something that he didn't think Verne saw and he went to carbo and Vernon. He said let me work with highly twenty one year old kid at the time and Larry was twenty seven or twenty eight at the time. And so they they put them in as a team and event, you know, we originally right away. We had this handsome Harley race. And now he was pretty boy. And he their interviews. And and that's something. I am sad about Wade because you to open all these venues out there. There is absolutely no footage of most of the sixty stuff of wrestling really for mandatory any territory there's stuff out there. But it's so SP. Bars. And if fans today could hear pretty boy Hannigan a handsome Harley interview when they would come out and Harley would would boast that he had the body of Hercules the mind of Einstein the face of the goddess of love, and he has the body that men fearing women crave. And of course, you automatically hate him right away. You know in all the fans, they hate him..

What what what lifter switch on the BULLDOGS, especially as you look at the data. My kid. I love the British BULLDOGS on when I was growing up and the biggest thing for me for dynamite. Kid was was the explosiveness how quick and how precise he wasn't feet. Everything. He did that had meaning had an impact, you know, thinking back to see his matches against tiger mask for the first one that. Something crazy 'cause they were on these these best of WWF Tate's that, you know, had some of the more traditional matches of the time with guys, you know, like, Don Meralco Pedro Morales. You know, hulk guys that that weren't wrestling that style, and then all of the sudden you see dynamite kid and tiger mask. And and then all the then the British bulldog comes in and they formed the tag TV Davey, and I it was just incredible. And as as I got older in tapes and DVD's became more available.

"It was a little bit of cold water on your argument, but it's gonna tend to happen early in the season. But they before we get into that. Because I want to get into that. But let's take Orlando versus Vancouver for moment. Orlando city. It seems like when they're in the attack. It's not clear to me that their options are Kevin Malone. Kakap quick one twos or else there is no other option. And maybe that because perhaps Carlos Rivas is not on the field right now. He's out injured or perhaps, they're Honduran. BP? Roach says is not is not there because if that's your game plan for this year Kokot and Malino trying to do six one two's wall passes to get into the box. That's not gonna work. And here's the thing it will work sometimes because they're such good players, but it won't work over the course of year. So it may work next week, and everyone's gonna come to you and say Simon urinating, which is true outside of this as well as in this argument. But I just think that I in my hand people Vancouver came in there and said we're just going to stop the middle. We're not gonna let Kaku through the middle. And it works the hair laughing. I asked this call you out on that Kokos Vancouver though, they stay in the game. Yeah. Greedy. And rivero. He's a forward who gets his chances. He's he has a little bit of cardinals recent him from the old days for those of you who have been around the league long enough. Can I take a stab at this L patio, Pesca talk? That's so I think they've really found someone in October of your radio who's going to who's going to produce even when you're DP leader. Pedro Morales doesn't Morales. Again. A game on the road. Doesn't doesn't show up? The other thing will highlight from the Saturday slate Montreal New England and we highlight that game. It was no nil. New England still struggling to. They haven't scored yet. Correct. And Montreal my heart goes out to Cameron porter a guy who had one of the moments of his career just a couple of weeks back in the champions. He's had two weeks of his life. I'm sure and then we don't know yet. What the extent the injuries were still waiting to hear? But it didn't look good on television. And he was pounding. The ground almost as if he knew something something bene- worry for Montreal Dominic. They're also went off with an injury. This Justin map out with an injury. And there wasn't at the game for personal reasons. So a lot of missing pieces for a team, that's flying Champions League. Right. And all of a sudden you look at that second leg semi final and you wonder Douro and Cam reporter. We're always going to be big pieces for that. But after the weekend still leading the league FC Dallas on full nine points. Three wins three games three wins. And they won on the road. This time in Philadelphia a sack Feffer red card, which he seems to believe wasn't that bad very bad. It was really bad. And that was really the turning point Dallas two goals, and they comfortably win to nothing. One of the goal scores on that day. Ryan Hollings head. He scored the second one off the bench. He joins us now on extratime radio. Ryan, thanks for taking the time. All right. Thanks for having that Ryan that ball was rolling. So slowly into. The net. I mean, you you can add a Cup of tea watching that go in. Oh, man. The second. I hit all the place. That was good. And I was not not convinced that it had enough feed on it. So yeah, I was married very pleased. When it happened to sneak in post, but yeah, I was thinking the same thing, and we're going to run over the band..
