"RES brother, brother. Listen, I've had Aikman's beer. It's pretty good, by the way. It is, by the way. I'm not saying the excuse you just hung up the phone. As you know, I prefer, if I have my choice, I'll go red wine. A big boom in red wine. But he brought some of his 8 beer last Super Bowl. Last year for super bowl. Right? And so I think you have it in your stud in there, bro do you have a you've got one in there? Is that what you got? Let me see. And I had it. It's really good. Yeah. And I do love the design too. It's just too blue squares on a white bottle that when you hold it up, why can't it? It's the number 8. There's an empty can from last year. Yeah, okay. There it is. I've had it on draft ice cold draft. It's very, very good. But I digress. Yes, sir. So, Richard, what do you think? I like him. I like him. I like your demon. I do. I have one more day to keep talking to myself and to take him on national television tomorrow. I mean, listen, you know, play the greatest game. He's ever played in his life. I think it's repeatable. I think it's repeatable, obviously the Vikings defenses, not up to snuff. With the eagles, it's a totally different animal, a totally different animal. The Vikings just fired their defensive coordinator. That ain't happening in Philadelphia. So it's a different animal, but I just, I like, I like your giants. I don't know. It's house money, right? It's house money. I mean, you know what? They go out there, play their game, do what they gotta do, say, ran the ball like you did at Penn State for God's sakes, right? Like you look, he looked great. The team played hard. Seems healthy. Yeah. You know, listen, these Philadelphia can Philadelphia win the Super Bowl. Yeah, they're talented team. So let's just, you know, we've been here before. We've been in these situations before and the Giants have won games that they shouldn't have in the past. And I think we have the heart and the team to do it. And if they lose and they go out well, so be it. We have the foundation for the future, which is all, I mean, this is house money. This is ridiculous. So I'm excited. Now, I hear you. That said, it's entirely possible. That the Giants win this one and take on a Dallas team that they know really well. They last saw him Thanksgiving that didn't go as well as you'd like. How great would that be for me, by the way? I know. I hear you. San Francisco, you want to go down memory lane, giants, and niners. There's some pretty lush history there too. But look, you're right. It is house money, but I do think Daniel Jones has arrived. I really feel that way. And I know John marrow said after the game we're back, which is a very unlike marathon to say, but totally. Good luck to you. Let's chat on Monday. Call him Monday. Thank you. I can't believe it. It is happening. Fits in Dallas. You're here on the rich eisen show. What's up Fitz? Gentlemen, happy Friday. How are we doing? We're good. We're ready for Ford dynamite playoff games, hopefully. So we're ready for it. Well, the first thing out of my mouth should have been, hey now. Hey now. Well, gentlemen, I appreciate you picking up on me. And I beg your pardon, it's been a little spotty this week, listening to the show. I want a couple of things too or first wanted to get your old take on the short week. I just wonder, I wonder why the competition committee okayed a game, I just seems like the balance is kind of off. They're having, they got two extra days to prep the niners. But with that being said, not worrying about it because I'm a glass half full guy. And I honestly believe that rock party has been on fire. We all know how to do for a bad game. And I think that this weekend, mister purdy has his for mister irrelevant, has his work cut out. And I'll get out the line and let you guys discuss, but I sure do appreciate it. Thanks, Fitz. Appreciate the show, gentlemen. Thank you. Thank you. I appreciate it. Here's a deal is that, yeah, pretty might be due for a bad game. I mean, that's obvious, right? He's due. He's due. I remember growing up in Staten Island, New York watching Phil Rizzuto called Yankee games. He would always say, holy cow, here comes Winfield. He's old for his last 15. He's due. Like instead of saying, what's wrong that he went over for 15, he would spin it to a positive he's due. Yeah, I mean, he's due, but you need to have a good team to overcome that stuff. Let's use the examples of the two other guys that we keep on mentioning in the same breath as purdy. Kurt Warner was on with you and sues yesterday, you guys. And Tom Brady. Kurt Warner in his American underdog carpet ride, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers almost ruined it, right? That was 99,

"Morning, Curtis, a little criticism of what you do with Tony Orlando. Anytime you refer to him, you will refer to it going in the singular. I don't see that you don't understand that it's two women who were in back of them. And you always say one, which I don't understand is the other thing. If you're really curious, I find it very hard to understand that you can't get a hold of Tony Orlando yourself. Well, this is the enigma in Gary and inward. Nobody seems to ever want to answer that question. It's sort of like, whatever happened to a number of people that used to be regularly a part of feature of TV programs, or radio programs. And then you ask that question and you never get any answers back. Now you say that dawn consisted of two women. But it's still, it was Tony Orlando and dawn. So obviously that meant two, I believe both for women were from east Harlem. I'm not complaining. We never say that. You always refer to them as one. And why wouldn't you just call in? And I never get an answer, Gary. I'm trying to find the dawn that I was referred to at city hall by Eric Adams to become an intern, which he says is necessary for me to officially become the rat jar of New York City. So I just find it hard to believe that you can't get a hold of Tony Orlando. Oh no, we've spoken from time to time, but whenever I ask that question, Gary, she lands here. It's quiet. He doesn't ask you a question? No, I don't think he's answered that question, anybody. To be honest with you, but then again, if you ever saw the perform, you will see the two women there. So that singular thing that you do will be out of the window. Why do I, I'm thinking back to his variety show, which number one and then Asian, I remember we would touch discussing how he helped revive George Carlin. The networks, why am I thinking it's just one woman? Why do I have this mental block, Gary? I don't know, but once again, I think that could be a straightforward like Tony Orlando himself in the mature you have to talk to him. I think it'll be in coming upon me. To confront Tony Orlando and his brother about that. Although I never seem to get an answer, and none of our call it seemed to know. Anyway, let's go to Mike who's calling from Elizabeth New Jersey, your turn to be heard here at WABC. Hey, Curtis. Four seasons got their names from the dean from the four seasons bowling alley at route 22 in union. Isn't that an odd place to get the name of your group from a bowling alley? Well, that's where they got their start. They started playing in there. That's how they got to start there. I actually belong to a bowling alley. Back in the 80s. Let me ask you a question. Did you ever hear of the bowling alley in Clifton, not far from Patterson? That was named after a Yogi Berra and Phil Rizzuto. No, never heard of it. I'm going to Elizabeth guy. I don't go up that way. Now hold on a second. You mean to tell me that there's a certain line of demarcation for you, you're an Essex county guy, is that what you're saying, a union county? I'm the unique county guy. So you would not go to pesea county. No, I got no need to go to state county. Now, how many years have you been bowling Mike? How many years? That was a one in dub, played the league there for year or two, and that was it. So you really didn't get into the sparkle ball, you know, which is part of the Polish American legacy. I mean, if you were to say if there was one sport that was synonymous with polls, it sparkle ball, it's Brunswick. Yeah. Absolutely. In the DNA, there's something about it in the DNA. But I appreciate that, a little short of personnel here. I don't know what it is. Broadway Bill Lee, during the day, there's like 10,000 people working here. I don't know, half the people what they do. I have no idea what they do. Video, you know, social networking. There's two of us here. How do you figure that out? It's like 5000 people here during the day doing things that have nothing to do with radio. I've always complained about that podcast is, you know, they're doing this and doing that. And I'm saying, that's not really what we do. We do a radio broadcast a live radio broadcast. I know you think all those other things you important, but they're really not. And yet here we are stuck me and you. And you say, where are all these young women snappers? Are they not available and worked are they not want to work? They hear all day long. Going barnacles on their backside and say, excuse me, young lady, what do you do here? Why hold the chair down? What do you do with that camera? I have no idea they just tell me to aim the camera, I got to get down to the nitty Gritty of this It's sort of like the broadcast is everything. Without a broadcast,

"Let's go to Michael calling from Brooklyn. Your turn to be heard here at WABC Mike. Hey, Curtis. Listen, yeah. It's not worth apologizing for much. Everyone is doing it these days. Well, one thing that I've been listening to for a whole year now ever since you got back from the mayoral race. I don't disagree with anything, but you constantly get the Frank James story wrong. You always say the Q train, but it has been on the entrance. And I know because my mom was on the art train. That was right across the platform from where it happened. Michael, you couldn't be more hopelessly correct. But now, according to Tommy, I should never apologize. I can't apologize to you, Michael. You understand that. You've corrected me constructive criticism, but Tommy says a man's man never apologizes. So Mike, I can't apologize to you. You heard what Tommy and queen said, right? Never apologize. Hey, it is what it is. And Curtis listen, my girl gets so upset. Me too, when I put my hands in the three piece set to stage one and they don't understand Michael, it's freezing cold if your hands are cold. And I don't believe in wearing gloves. I think that's a manly. A real man does not wear gloves. Unless you're playing baseball, you know, and you gotta have to make that softball, you hard boil right. No, no, no clubs. Especially, you're playing that fake phony fraudulent football with you. The goal is when these clubs they look like mittens. Hey, be a real man. No gloves. And if it's cold, you see it in sports all the time. In fact, how old are you, Michael? 26. Okay, so this way before your time. General manager for the Yankees for many years before that allows his shortstop wherever he played, especially for the Yankees this stick gene Michael. This guy would get into the batting box. And I thought he was fondling himself, right? The camel would have to leave. Phil Rizzuto would go holy cow. Hey, Mike, what the hell are you doing? I mean, how many people have how many people remember that? Right to stick. You get into batting box and it'd be like he manipulating himself. Get your hands on it at other pocket of yours. Horrible, horrible head, right? Okay, short stop. Okay, general manager. Team Michael. I mean, the camera would film with sono would say, holy cow, you attack off achieve Michaels. We'll be knocked off the air. Every time you got into the batter's box, I don't know if it's low hanging or whatever the hell constantly be like, what the? And he would say, well, I had to keep my hands warm because, you know, it ain't no gloves back then. That was it. That makes sense. It's a manly thing. You know, it's a manly thing. What can I say? Am I going to apologize for that? Oh, and when we come back, the other one. That they can't escape. One 808 four 8 9 two two two that's one 808 four 8 WABC. You can act like a man. What about you?

"And the other part of this has been so interesting is you watch Red Barber's call of Roger Maris Homer and it is amazing the amount of time that he spends focused on the fan who caught the ball and the $5000 that he's going to receive versus focusing on Maris and running around the bases and the crowds reaction to it. And you hear Phil Rizzuto on the radio and she completely different tone. I don't think he mentions the fan of the $5000. He's saying, holy cow, a number of times, which is what you'd expect from Phil Rizzuto. So I think TV allows you a little different platform than radio, obviously, and allowing the viewer to kind of get there. And swim in the moment. And that's going to fall on our producer Ben Johnson and our producer Andy Jacobson and director Ben Johnson. If it comes to that. It'll be amazing. You know, we all hope it happens at Mike and I talked about how we're rooting for, you know, he was saying how he wanted it to happen on Wednesday night and I was saying, yeah, I'm hoping that we hold back till Sunday I texted our friend Aaron Boone early in the week. How about benching just for a few days that would be really nice. What's been like for you to watch him at Yankee Stadium in the advance in recent days because man, that is fun. That when he hit a double the other night, in Yankee Stadium, when they're going to go on for trying to try to clinch the division, trying to clinch a playoff spot, the fans were disappointed that Aaron judge hit a double. And you could see like the air go out of all the man and then last night when he gets that long fly ball. Yeah, it's fairly, it's fairly incredible. The contradiction in what the conflict, emotionally, that fans are dealing with. I think what appears to be the only guy whose level headed about this is judge himself, because his genuine joy in last night's win. His genuine joy in watching that and hit the Grand Slam is his genuine acceptance and clear satisfaction with I just got walked. Do you realize we need runs to win this game? I'm on first base. I'm smiling at things and everyone else is uptight and bummed and after his set bad ends without a home or they sit back down and they're disappointed and all that and he seemingly doesn't appear to be that way. A few observations, it strikes me that the Maris family, the judge family, you know what's going to happen, but boy, it becomes painful after a few games when it doesn't and it's another night we're going back and it's an exciting as it is and as you meet as it is, you realize it is impacting other people's lives in a very significant way. You know, there's an obligation to go and they want to be there, but until it happens, they're going to continue to show up and that's sort of one small aspect of it. And you're right. The other is how disappointing it is when he doesn't get it. When I saw Matt Barnes committed that game or warm up, I felt like here is the perfect guy. I remember some Matt Barnes, George Springer at bats, where he challenges somebody with a fastball and Springer would hit it over the monster at Fenway Park. It just struck me that, oh my gosh, here comes 61 and he just missed it. And it was an ideal pitch for him to hit. And if he hits it to right or left, he's got 61, there are certain guys, you know, Michael walker's a really smart picture. Nick pavetta could hang a curve ball with the best of them. And he'll challenge up with a fastball. That's the number of times we've done Nick pavetta games. That's Saturday. We'll see what happens there. So look, it's like the weather. You can't control it if you're invested in getting to your game and he's sitting on 61. I would much prefer him to have already hit 61 because to me the record breaking Homer is the most significant one, not necessarily the record tying one. So sure, I'd love to see him get one more, but judge is unique. I mean, 11 times he's hit two home runs in a game. So if he gets one in a game, then it becomes uh oh, it'll be careful what you ask for because the next one is the record breaker. So, you know, those are just some of the peripheral opinions and views that I would have looking at this thing through that lens. And I think the other part of this for us, which is kind of neat. If it is a Sunday Night and he hasn't gotten there, is that Michael Kay gets a chance to sit in the studio and call the home run. I mean, he's been around them all year. And so do we. So that part of it is unique and special. And I hope my hope for his sake and our sake and everybody involved with the production, it happens on our watch. Yeah. Yeah, no doubt about it. You mentioned about feelings. I got, I was asked on SportsCenter the other day about trying to put what judge is doing in a perspective. And I mentioned, you know, the decline in offensive numbers in our conversation with Mike Trout the other day about how it's more difficult hitting than ever before and in light of all that. And also factoring what I believe to be the evolution of players and the evolution of the game that what I think he's doing is the most amazing single season performance ever. And of course, in naturally, there are folks on social media who will push back and say, we very reasonable, hey, look at what bonds did in 2001 and 2002 and three and four. And Carl, I've told you, you know, I voted for Barry Bonds for the hall when I was voting for the Hall of Fame before I stopped. You know, I voted for Mark McGuire, voted for Sammy Sosa. Their numbers are the numbers. You know, the single season home run king is Barry Bonds. He had 73 and you're not taking that away. The all time home run king is Barry Bonds because he hit, you know, all this home runs during the regular season. But when we talk about the greatest ever, that to me is subjective. You know, the best ever. And for me, it would be weird to pick the name if someone asked you, who's the greatest cyclist? I think it'd be weird to pick a Lance Armstrong or a Floyd Landis. Or if you're somewhere where to ask you, who's the greatest sprinter? If you were to say Ben Johnson, you know, who set the record and then was stripped of his gold medal in the 1988 Olympics. And that's where I kind of moved past Barry Bonds. Tell me what your perspective is on that. Well, I think that there's two ways that you look at all of these things historically. One is through the prism of fact, which is the 73 homers and the others through the prism of an opinion, which is your own opinion. And they don't generally blur. It's fact that he gets 73 home runs. I would suggest if you ask me, who's the greatest home run hitter I ever saw, it would be Barry Bonds. And that falls on me then to dismiss what made him the greatest home run hitter.

"78th avenue in Glendale queens is now co named Phil Rizzuto corner. After the famed Yankees shortstop and radio announcer Two. Three. Holy cow, famous for his long stories about baseball, birthday wishes in between gameplay and for using huckleberry as a curse word. Rizzuto played 13 years for the Yankees winning 7 World Series championships. Christina Wilkinson, president of the newtown historical society, gathered the petitions to get the corner renamed after him. He's probably the most famous person from this entire area. So it's a long overdue. Rizzuto announced for the Yankees from 1957 to 1996, he died in 2007. It is the last day of the school year for New York City public school students, and this is certainly big news in producer Alec Hamilton's home, her daughter, Felix Burnett is 9. She attends PS1 30 in Brooklyn's Kensington neighborhood. I'm excited about going into fourth grade about summer and about the last two school I think I'm going to have fun because we're going to watch a movie. I want to watch a movie now.

"Buster bleacher tweets for Tuesday first up we have Lawrence Jordan at Lawrence Jerome writes in. I realized that one has to follow the market, but sane at a $600,000 salary is not enough for a first year player is ridiculous. Most of us who love the game as Phil Rizzuto said play ball for a ham sandwich and a glass of milk. It's a business. You know what? I mean, I hope that players get what they can get in these negotiations. You know? I mean, people when they say that somebody is overpaid like an actor. No, not if somebody's willing to pay him $20 million of film. Right. Joel Garcia at Garcia Joe LA writes in. I watch or listen to the Dodgers every night, I go to the stadium about once a week, it appears my disposable income will not be returning to Major League Baseball and no more merchandise tickets and subscriptions for me. Thanks for the memories. Joel, I don't know if I believe you on this one. Let's wait until the, you know, if we get the season where you stand on all of this. We left a little bit of an out, right? He used the word appears, okay? Like I think he is waiting to see what happens with these negotiations before he finally our finalizes that divorce. John mall at John mall seems to be in the same boat here. I went to one MLB game last year. Maybe I will cut back, so another thing. I like that one. Last one for today, Joseph, korolev at tired Mariner fan. I'm a die hard baseball fan with what's happening in the world. Ukrainian citizens fighting for their lives. I'm embarrassed and disgusted at the game for not reaching a deal this week. There are bigger issues. Get this deal done. Maybe it'll happen, Joe, but I think everyone probably agrees with you, even in the negotiating room. Yeah, so in 2002, when the CBA was up, and they were arguing over the question of whether or not there's going to be drug testing. Some of the conversation among the player leadership was, you know what? We have this international war on terror going on. We've got soldiers overseas. We do not want to have a labor fight and shut down the sport while all that's going on. I think a similar conversation needs to take place today. There you have it. Lots of therapy on today's podcast. Thanks for all the bleacher tweeters for calling in and writing in. We really appreciate all of our listeners. So thank you so much..

Well, it depends on the day. If I say, if I'm committed, and I'm going to go out there and do a 6 hour day. Okay, what I'm committed to do three hour day. But I'd say an average of three to 5 three to three to four rides an hour. Wow. I think the most I've ever done in one day is like 14 or 15 rides because you do get fed up with it after a while.

"Me up one night to the sound of thunder. Like I said, I was 15 going on 16 and truth be told, I was a little too tall and could have lost a few pounds. But that summer I dreamt hard for that black haired beauty with big black eyes. And that was doreen Orlando. And so one summer day, jelly Federico slipped in an 8 track tape of this fellow named meatloaf and my whole world changed. The summer became monumental and every memory I made and all the attempts at chasing pretty girls were done with meatloaf's beautiful lyrics swirling around my head. No girl stood a chance after that. Meatloaf's bat out of hell album was one song after another that spoke directly to me. Not only was it Magnum Opus, but it was the stirring soundtrack of the summer of 1977 and beyond. It was just 7 songs. That's all it was. 7 songs is bad out of hell. But they were all performed so wonderfully and perfectly and they captured the angst and the confusion and the hopes and dreams of every young boy in the world. Every boy who hoped to find love, whether it was in a bedroom or behind the bleachers or even in a car. Illuminated by the dashboard light. We've all been there, except meatloaf was the first guy to perfectly capture it. It meant even more in me growing up in New York as a Yankee fan and getting to hear our beloved broadcaster Phil Rizzuto, making the call that we were rounding third base. Holy cow, I think he's gonna make it. It's a perfect album because every song has phrases in it. That are used to this day. You took the words right out of my mouth. Bad out of hell. Two out of three ain't bad. And even all revved up with no place to go. I know meatloaf and his writing partner, Jim steinman didn't invent those phrases, but they sure as shit knew how important they were and would be in the everyday vernacular of our lives. I remember my first wedding in 1986 when the boys and girls faced off across the dance floor, it was kind of a thing back then as the DJ played Paradise by the dashboard light and it was such innocent and kind of high fever fun. The girls would sing, do you love me? Will you love me forever? Do you need me? Will you never leave me? Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life? Will you take me away? Will you make me a wife? I gotta know right now. Before we go any further, do you love me? Will you love me forever? And then the guys most of us not yet married would shoot back. Let me sleep on it. Baby, baby, let me sleep on it. Let me sleep on it. I'll give you an answer in the morning. It was so much fun to see the flushed faces of all of us in our 20s, not quite sure what the future held. Many of us getting married. One by one, wondering if this was the right thing. It felt like the right thing, and it was a, it was a wondrous time how we treated marriages like, this is great. This is going to be perfect. And the way everybody sang wished you well and shouted those meatloaf lyrics back and forth. It was so beautiful. But then of course, on that same song, the lyrics change. And meatloaf begins to sing some lyrics that really carry a lot of weight. And it's the way a lot of men feel and women feel. I couldn't take it any longer, lord I was crazed and when the feeling came upon me like a tidal wave. I started swearing to my God and now my mother's grave that I would love you till the end of time. Well, that sounds wonderful. But then he goes, I swore I would love you till the end of time. Now at this point, every girl thinks meatloaf is a wonderful guy. But then he says something that none of us could imagine saying back then, but boy oh boy, is it true? And then when he says. So now I'm praying for the end of time to hurry up and rhyme 'cause if I gotta spend another minute with you, I don't think that I can really survive. I'll never break my promise. So forget my vow, but God only knows what I can do right now. I'm praying for the end of time. It's all that I can do. Praying for the end of time, so I can end my time with you. Sorry, my voice isn't up to singing today. But it basically is the greatest breakup song of all time. We go from a guy who would desperately wants a girl so badly and then because she seeks commitment like when in want, he's basically praying for the world to end so he doesn't have to end up with the girl. It's as brutal as it is beautiful. And it's so perfectly sums up what it was like to be young and in love. And I'm doing this show obviously because meatloaf is passed on and it's COVID and I said so many times the past several months that we're going to see a lot of these giants and legends go and God knows 2022 is brought us to the brink of the biggest and the best and the brightest dying, whether it's COVID or not they're dropping and meatloaf's

"Class here, you know that you have to do it on Friday. We know why you do it because you don't want to get in the way of NFL Sunday. Obviously give these these you know. Wednesday of our department of Wednesday give these outstanding players a great great forum. Nobody want to do it on Thursday. Speicher's hold up by the box definitely at the Dallas Cowboys tomorrow night and Friday might get mixed in with some college football, so probably best to do it on Wednesday here, Marvin Miller is a non player, winning Ted Simmons switch hitting power catcher champion Larry Walker. You know, Some people had an issue with Larry Walker. I didn't. I mean, you know, watching Larry Walker Prime Larry Walker had one of the best arms. I mean of all time. I mean to me. He's with Wind field and Clement Day in day, Parker. Um, eat, you roll in right field. I'm probably missing a couple. I'm sure I am. But he he had a rocket and he was a great player. But let's face the highlight of the day was Jeter. The highlight of the day was Jeter. And that maybe not for Ted Simmons and Larry Walker fans, but certainly for the Yankees and and Jeter what he represented the amazing thing about their agenda right to me, and it's always been this way and I think It. This is why it's so unique, and I think it's going to be hard for anybody not impossible, but hard for somebody to replicate this when You know, and I watched his first game and Phil Rizzuto was still on the call at the old Jacobs field against the Indians. Opening day. 96 Tories First year is the skipper Buck Showalter gets fired Yankees win the World Series that year. But in his first game and he's not a power guy hits a home run over the high wall. Makes a great over the shoulder catch with. I think couple of men on base with Cody on the mound. Great. You can see poised immediately. An ever bill and and and ability. To elevate, you know, he's not a home run. Henry goes yard his first game as a rookie, right? And but the thing about Jeter and you'll appreciate this is a former athlete. Never the best athlete. Never 40 or 50. Stolen Base Guy. Marginal power, nominal power Now it didn't take steroids. Probably gonna 30 if he did, but Well, I think at times was a bit of an overrated field or I think the name got him a few gold gloves. But what Jeter did, and you cannot quantify this. That clutch gene, and that slow heartbeat was the best I've ever and the instincts was the best I've ever seen in my life. Yeah, I mean, they're showing here on W. On CBS. It's from WCBS in the In the post season where he just just there. He's coming from shortstop. That's the age. That's the ace playoff game with job be Jeremy Giambi. Exactly. He's his slide. He's coming from coming from shortstop cut off a ball from right field, which is not his play, by the way. No, no. Do you know why it became his play because from his position he read Shane Spencer was throwing the ball from the wall. He read that that ball was over. I guess it would have been. T knows Head. It was off line is the cut off, man. So seeing that Tino didn't have a play, He quickly registered the depth perception and the elevated height on the throat and went to where he had no business. Being. My point is he came from shortstop. Yes, that's what I'm saying. He down down to the first base. It's one of the people. No, no. Why? He came from shortstop. I don't know if the tag was actually made. It may have been safe. Exactly, honestly may have been safe. Jeremy Giambi, I think, but you didn't get dirty. You should you don't slide, you should be out. You're right, but he may have been saying you're right. But that's beside the point. You know, the question becomes like, how does how does there become a next Derek Jeter? If there is an opportunity to be next year cheater and I don't know if they're well. I think it's going to have to be someone different like Shohei Otani perfectly. I was with you who captures your imagination for different reasons. Derek did because He was this perfect professional at like 22 years old. He was like, dude, how are you again? Like I'm just in the league doing all these kind of crazy things, but nobody ever talked about him ever. Everything he did was below the radar, and he just he presented as the perfect professional on a team. Um, where winds rookie of the year and they win a World Series and they win a couple of war. And it just it was a consummate just professionalism and in the biggest city with a team that wasn't always that way, you know what I mean. It was like there's the team was always loud, right, as always. The Yankees are ex. The Yankees are why, but Derek Jeter was always steady. And so he became this ground. You know, a grounding force for one of the best teams of of that generation. And now, as I think about these kids that are coming into Major League baseball I don't know if they want to be that, you know, I mean, show you. Otani feels like he does want to be that so maybe he is the next one. This next iconic baseball player that will talk about for generations. The question is, How long can he do what he's doing? Great like Derek did what he did great. For forever right from day one for 20 years, right, so kids Shohei Otani going to be a sub three er, a pitcher, you know, high strikeout guy throwing gas and then also hitting 50 home runs this season. I do it for a couple of years. He's not doing it for 20, and he also came up later and he came up later. Exactly so it's just going to be hard to find someone. Who's that consistent? Yep, with one team. And ultimately, you gotta win. That's that's That's the part that makes this incredibly elusive. Yes, it might be 30 40 50 years before we see something like this, they will be better. There were better players at shortstop When Jeter was playing a rod was one of the no more Now who knows what was authentic with, you know, you know a rod obviously. Took the shortcut there. But you know, there have been no more broke down at the end and whispers about him or whatever. I mean, no, no need to dredge that up. But the point being that you know nobody that was absolutely viewed as 100% authentic by everybody in the game at that point. Uh, you know, nobody looked at Jeter as as the best shortstop. Let him know the best player but used over a bonds. He was never like. You know, one of these Ricky Henderson or or it's crazy because he To not even be the best that your position but to carve out this this legacy, what I think is is very unique about Derek, right? Is that you hear about and we all know about the Yankee history. But truth be told, you know, once Manta retired, and his knees betrayed him, and he's done And you know, after the 65 World Series, which the Yankees lost by the way, and then the seventies certainly the end. The rest of the sixties were baseball graveyard. In the early seventies, they were horrendous, and then they popped in in 76. And they want a couple championships after that, But the Yankee way has always been. You know, these guys who played on one team for a long time and just went right to Cooperstown, DiMaggio mantle, Yogi Bear, er I mean, I could just listen to name all of them. But really after Mantle the next and really the only great Yankee was Reggie in terms of the national, right? Yes, I mean, Tino, beloved Polo Neil, but but I mean, national, But Reggie played on two other teams before he came to the Yankees and a team after it actually, two more after it went to the Angels, and he was with the Orioles in the age. Before that. We remember him as a Yankee because the Yankees are the biggest brandy played for there's no doubt now. The A's also won three championships and and and he broke his leg and he's heard with the Orioles. But My statement stands. Your statement is still the biggest brandy played. Sold to win five championships to to have almost 3500 hits with one team. Uh you know, I don't know at that position where you know, 11 12. Years in, you might have to slide. The third base second base outfield, Robin yell who won back to back MVPs with the Brewers moved to center field. He came up as a 19 year old with Milwaukee. He eventually shifted to center. Want to say when he was about? I'm guessing, but around I'm going to say about 28 is maybe like that's that's an unforgiving spot on the diamond and you look at all the great players in at that position like Ozzie Smith had no power. Um Cal Ripken, who was amazing, But Cal didn't quite have the athleticism of even a Jeter. Some other guys are tainted. Ernie Banks didn't play in the playoffs..

Uh, and shock wasn't terrible Defender Charles. I don't think he had the ability to his defense when he got in better shape when he went to Phoenix. I think he had more of an ability to play. But he had. You know KJ and Dan Meyer Lee had better defenders around him. Neither one of our great defenders was shock was abysmal. Both of them to in today's NBA, where you have to cover more space and pick and roll and get out and defend different positions. Both of them would be atrocious. I mean, shot could be worse.

"It would be really difficult. For for for Aaron Rodgers not to show up, but this is what's going to happen. With the with the contract will be very difficult. So I know Aaron Rodgers probably isn't happy. The best thing for Aaron Rodgers that do this year because sitting out doesn't make sense or not reporting the training camp doesn't make sense financially because the Packers could just say Okay, then sit out. You all this money back? We don't have the quarterback, but we're not going to the quarterback anyway. I think that makes the most sense to do right now. For Aaron Rodgers is too alright. Keep sitting out Don't show up, but once training camp starts Get back in there. Have your press conference where you have to answer questions lie if you want to. But and then move on because your best chance to win this year is in your current situation. It's not by being traded to Denver. It's not by sitting out and waiting till next year. I think Aaron Rodgers should report this year. I don't know if he's going to or not. And I'm not sure if the Packers really deep down inside one him, too, as well. I'm sure they like them back, but they don't want to have to grovel anymore at getting them back. Right. They've traveled to see him separately in the off season. They have apologized to him for drafting Jordan love or whatever the issue is, but he is not over it yet. And the president of the Packers. Mark Murphy over the weekend, said that called Aaron Rodgers quote a complicated fella. Which he is a complicated fella. But it doesn't and it really in itself shouldn't be a big deal. The fact that we're in this situation right now, and he's speaking Lee speaking openly about it, and Mark Murphy, the package president has always has already admitted. That it's dividing the fan base. He knows that you have people that are saying, What are you doing? Do whatever it takes to get Aaron Rodgers happy and you have the other people that are saying, like, Hold on a second. Like, what do you want to have a really good team. What's your problem, man? Like Jordan loves not taking your job. But telling you Aaron Rodgers sees as seen what's happened with quarterbacks around the NFL. He sees what happened with Tom Brady. Tom Brady is not happy. He goes to Tampa Bay. Tampa based says What do you need? Tom won a championship. They're going forward again. Aaron Rodgers was once the Green Bay Packers to have more urgency in China win right now. Drafting a quarterback in the first round in Jordan. Love is an urgency to win right now that's worrying about your future. And Aaron Rodgers looks at at Tom Brady and what the bucks are doing and says That should be me. That's what we should be doing right now, and we're not Taking a conservative approach. Russell Wilson, he saw he saw what happened with Tom Brady. He looks at his team and says they're not listening to me. They listen to time in Tampa. Tom's bringing in guys Tom's part GM part coach. I want that same type of role here in Seattle. You know what the Seahawks didn't they? They did it. He kissed his, but publicly, they said everything they needed to pop privately into the Adam Schefter is of the world. They didn't put out. Bad stories about Russell Wilson. They tighten it up. They, they they at least right now he's happy that could very easily end at the end of the season if they don't win again, But at least Russell Wilson's onboard this year you need to get Aaron Rodgers on board and I don't know if it can happen, but it doesn't seem like to me that the Packers are fully committed. To making that happen. As much as they say. We want to back in everything else. The behavior of the president of the team doesn't doesn't suggest to me that he's 100% on board with kissing Aaron Rodgers. But To get them back and let's remember this isn't this would be an instance where ownership gets involved, and the owner gets involved because the quarterback that's making 40 year in the owner have a unique and special relationship. There's no owner for the For the Green Bay Packers. There's the president. There are publicly owned team that they they're publicly traded. They're owned by the fans, essentially You don't have an owner getting involved. You have a president that feels the way that he feels. Alright, let's go. Let's take a phone call before we get out of here. David in Dallas. David, how are you? You're on CBS Sports radio. How about on John Nowhere and drilled Morgan Sunday night baseball for me? I don't know how you are. I'm 37. They were Basically like Generational thing Growing up Sunday night, my family would always go get You know? And then we were army. We looked everywhere, but we don't with the Italian somewhere. Back and watch the game while we ate dinner at the restaurant with Gerald Morgan. And John Miller. Yeah, I don't know what it is, but didn't the game seen bigger? Back then with John Morgan or with John Miller and Joe Morgan, Right, like it felt like he was a real event. It was Sunday night Baseball now with a Rod Uh huh. And and it's also like and I don't watch as much or really anywhere close to the amount of national baseball that I used to. But David backed into your point. It was appointment TV for me. I would always watch Sunday Night baseball John Miller and Joe Morgan. We're great together, I agree. Oh, yeah, And will do me is they always have a couple of years. Everybody wouldn't Everybody want him gone? Sometimes you don't know what you got to have done because look at it now, like you're saying with ESPN, they basically major sideshow. It's basically the outs. Rodriguez Sunday night baseball. It is now you're right verse verse for Ski Jin. He just kind of is there and a Rod won't shut up. Yeah, It's not very good anymore. But Joe Morgan, the late great Great job organ. Thank you for the call. David. Uh, yeah. Joe Morgan. Was He was a really good player. For a number of teams played laid into believe his early forties, he was the Philadelphia Philly in 1983. They call him the wheeze kids. Tony Perez was 40. Joe Morgan was 40 Pete Rose's 40 All plus 40 all on the same team. All the old Reds that were there made the World Series lost two lost to the Orioles and Cal Ripken. And Jim Palmer. But that was a you know, like, I love Joe Morgan. You know, baseball. Baseball team's grown up for me, it was Joe Garagiola. That would do a lot of the NBC Sunday afternoon game. So you actually had Vince Scully in the mid the late eighties. You had Vin Scully doing play by play on the national game on NBC. And yet, Joe Garagiola. As the analyst on there. And that was national baseball to me the first what I remember from national baseball, and then from there, he moved over the Fox and Joe Buck came in. I guess Sean McDonough did some things in the in the nineties, too. For NBC after after Scully stopped doing the national stuff, but that was it. I mean, it's amazing because when you think of football broadcasters and even college football, Brent Musburger was awesome for all those years, Keith Jackson was so good For so many years. Verne Lundquist. He did pro as well. But he I think he's he's best known for through an SEC games in golf like they're just giants huge stars, and then you go to baseball. It's more local right, like Marty Brennaman in in Cincinnati Hawk Harrelson in Chicago, Harry Carey in in Chicago. Now it's John Sterling in New York. But you had Mel Allen and Phil Rizzuto in Philadelphia was Harry Kallis. Did it for so many years. So baseball really is. It's a local thing with announcers and then nationally. Nationally, We look at all the football announcers as kind.

All right, Let's take some phone calls here. 855 to 2 to four CBS 8552 to 4 to 27. Let's go to Mitch. Mitch is New Jersey met here on CBS Sports Radio. What's up? You doing? John? Mitch Mitch in East Windsor. What's up, buddy? Yeah, I'm sure. Exit eight. Yeah, He's okay. Um Two guys, Uh, Vince Scully. It's time for Dodger baseball. And then one guy I saw more often for was coming out of New York. Holy cow, Phil Rizzuto. Phil Rizzuto. He has is one I have written down holy cow! And the money store. The money story commercials, too, is what I remember. Uh, Phil Rizzuto from yes, only five before he wanted VP little guy playing shorts up to I guess he had great leader in building. I won't go through with the NBA. You know the Clippers? What? What to let Go of Chris Paul. Without money thing. They need a real A two point guide. Jackson's not, you know, consistent elephant. Rondo and belly. He can't school and Rhonda. They don't complain. Bad guys don't even play on the bench. The I could say like to keep themselves in a hole. Yes, Rondo hasn't done. Thanks, Mitch. Appreciate it. Rondo has I had at least one did not play in this series. They were. I mean, I thought it was crazy when they were when they were trying to lean on playoff Rondo for veteran experience. They ship Lou Williams to Atlanta. And at that point, I think I think Atlanta was kind of, like, all right, well, we might make the playoffs here. We're looking like we can make the playoffs. And a guy like Lou makes more sense and and to get it. Getting Rondo out of there, you know, Rather is not interested in being with the team that can probably win one playoff series, at least at that point. He should be happy in in L. A. But Lou Williams has added a veteran presence with the Hawks, and he's a Georgia guy was a one time Georgia state. High school basketball player of the year before he was drafted by the 70 Sixers in the second round, So I you know, I don't I don't know what to do with Chris. Paul is I don't I don't know. Was he the scapegoat? In Los Angeles with the Clippers. I mean, wherever he goes, he wins doesn't win the big game, but it brings up a winning culture with them. Let's go to Victor Victor is in San Diego, California Victor Good morning. You're on CBS Sports radio. How are you? He could, um About Ted Lightning during country games. Hang a star. And my favorite. What is it? What does he say it after a home run. No, no. Uh yeah. Homework, All right. Or just like, uh, Good, uh, playing the outfield. And he says Hang a star. Yeah, You can hang a starting that one. Okay, That's a good one. Okay, but the chicken Laker games Fridge. Alors closed. General Taylor sickening. Yeah. How long did he stop doing the games? Victor. That was chicken. He was there forever. So just just recently, right for a test again. Yeah, it wasn't that long ago. I mean, a lot of times. It's a lot longer than we think. But he was, uh yeah. So it was. It was the beginning of the turn of the century. Thanks, Victor. Appreciate it gets thicker and long time play by play announcer for the For the Lakers, I guess. I guess if Like Victor had two local ones to Southern California with the Padres and then with Chick Hearn. Um, baseball announcers, I guess would have more catch phrases more games. They have the home run. Like I don't want to take a lot of them. So we have colors that say, but Hawk Harrelson, Nat. You know, Hawk Harrelson at all. Do you know any of his? His catchphrase is not off the top of my head now, So he's a longtime White Sox announcer. I believe he's a former player, too. But he, he says, uh, for home runs, you can put it on the ball Ord. That's his his thing or on a strikeout. He he says he go So it'll be like, you know to pitch he go. Saying, You know, Strike three struck him out or whatever. So he, he says, he's gone. It's like, yeah, I mean, it's good. It's it's some. It's somewhat annoying, but I think you have to be somewhat annoying to be good. Here's another one, a national You know, no longer doing the games. I I don't want to. I want to quickly Google to see if he's still alive. But you know, and then all time all time great. Keith Jackson, though he did he died in 2018 Art, so Keith Jackson used to do what Right. When I think of when I think of the Rose Bowl and big time college football I I feel like Keith Jackson is doing play by play, and I'm a big Mussburger fan and mussburger agrees is on is on similar levels. Keith Jackson, Bob Greasy and and Keith Jackson at the Rose Bowl, USC against Notre Dame. Alabama just how he was able to take a word like Alabama and make it something that's memorable. Alabama HEAT. Jackson was awesome. Big fan. Let's go to Xavier in Indiana Xavier, you're on CBS Sports Radio. Good morning. Gordon House going What's up, But how are you? Good. So one of my top three would have to be Gus Johnson. I mean, just calls are just incredible. Um, that's pretty much it. Ms. Johnson's like he can. He can call any game. Any sport really? Yeah, when I think I think tournament and he because he's fox, so he doesn't do the tournament games anymore, But, uh, like just the the enthusiasm he has for one of these games if it's a regular season game Like I don't know. If I'm that pumped up before a tournament game. There's nobody I want doing the game more than Gus Johnson. What's his go to buckets? Nobody says buckets. Yep. Mhm Alright, man. Appreciate it. Thanks. Savior Dick is calling from the state of Indiana Dick. Good morning. You're on CBS Sports radio. What's up, bud? Not too much. Not too much. I've got a I got a just a couple here.

That's exactly what I think of that big old big old Nate Newton big old Larry Allen. And Yeah, and then he circled. Look, Look at this. What? Coming off of his pants Here. Man is a great answer, man. Thank you. Thank you. All right. Well, you have a great day you to dick. Thank you. Yeah, but just they weren't even really words that John Madden would say he would just have sound effects. Your boom. And he had he had the commercial for many years Tough act into an acting 10 actions. Foot spray. Madden was the endorser and, like, boom, tough acting connecting Here's one that I don't even mad. I'm not even comfortable saying It's Michael.

"Into a game. If Doc was doing it. Or if I hear his voice, I'm staying with it a little bit longer. Yes, he growing up. Ah Yankee Fan in New Jersey. Phil Rizzuto was essentially the voice of baseball for bay, and as much of you is like, a character and like, that's funny as he was. He was sort of the that to me. He sounded like what baseball was supposed to sound like. I was just listening to meatloaf's bat out of hell. It came on the radio, and you have the baseball call because it's about a guy and a girl in a car and he's treating it like it's a baseball game. First base second base there be You know what I'm talking about? Yes, done. I used to really like Ralph Kinder and Bob Murphy and the old Nets days. Even Lindsey Nelson goes a little further back. But that just brought me back to a lot of childhood memories. I thought they were really fun Team but a national broadcaster. Not a local one, because we, you know we grew up with the local one. I had Marty Brennaman and Joe Nuxhall on the Reds games, and they were great but a national voice that's different. Um, And that's where I have Keith Jackson. It was just something about when Keith came on. He had that excitement had that twang and it felt like he truly enjoyed the gang. I am a club when they pulled Brent Mussburger at the end off college football. I kind of missed that I thought he liked, he said. Big game. Um, I always liked him better. Is this studio host, But yeah, I I understand that, Um, where you You know, Johnny Miller in golf is another voice. Where? When I heard it, it always sounded. It was just different because I didn't think Johnny was going to Throw verbal bouquets at every golfer like I thought that he was going to tell you what his aren't unvarnished opinion and and I was appreciated that but there's there's so many broadcasters down through the years that you know you just hear that voice and you go. You know when Howard Cosell Howard Cosell was That was a unique voice. It wasn't it wasn't a trained voice. But he rivaled the game that he was doing or boxing match. Probably more. So is a boxing commentator. Then what he did in the booth because he wasn't a football guy. But in boxing, it felt like he was more of a boxing guy because his relationship with Mohammed Ali Ah, let me see Taylor in South Dakota. Hey, Taylor, what's on your mind? Hey, Dan. I'm not in 1002nd time. Like all the second time I got it. Anyway, Um I think I think that I'm a first off on a big rebate. Pakistan. I haven't proposed a little kid. But I think if Tom Brady goes into Lambeau heathen rockers and then faces my homes in the Super Bowl. And six of the cell and bit more homes in the Super Bowl. It could just kind of watch his hands to be like I did. I went on the road. I want all three games on the road in the playoff. I need that supposes. Second past 12 in the league and I need my home. The guy you think is the guy everybody thinks is the cake. Yeah. Yeah, agrees. I mean that. I don't think anybody will have gone through. Three quarterbacks, three Hall of Fame quarterbacks in succession and first Ballot Hall of Fame quarterbacks. My home's Rodgers Brees. If if it happened now, you could say, well breeze. At the end of his career. Rogers is playing at an all time high and we don't how about we? How about we wait and see what happens? Let's go right now. We gotta have a hot take. This. This would be as impressive as anything Brady ever accomplished. But let's see if he gets through the Green Bay Packers right now. Yes, the club You mean rolling through the F C e spells and mag Media overrated Colts team would feasted on the F C South..
Why Do People Say 'Holy Cow'?
"It seems seems quaint. These days to express astonishment with a wholesome phrase like holy cow. It's so common that we've probably all said at some point. Maybe as kids. And if your sports fan of a certain age you may even associated with baseball announcer Phil Rizzuto or Harry Carey Carey delivered particularly clearly memorable holy cow in his broadcasts so much so that comedian will ferrell often period carry on Saturday night. Live some some people even thought that resute oh or carry might have originated the phrase they were both in the booth in the early days of holy cow but not quite early enough. Russillo began announcing after his playing days. Were over his first season as announcer for the New York. Yankees was in nineteen fifty seven carries announcing career began in the minor leagues in Nineteen Forty. Three and he moved up to the majors in nineteen forty five but holy cow dates from before that. It's what's known as as a minced oath which is when you substitute a kind of maybe similar ish sounding word for a taboo word. That's why we have friggin thing. It and heck in this case cow is probably a stand in for Christ so the speaker wouldn't take the Lord's name in vain minced oaths have been around in the English language for hundreds of years the variations on the holy theme have been in use since the middle of the eighteen hundreds according to the Oxford English dictionary its this definition of holy includes its use as an expletive such as holy cow or Holy Mackerel the first instance listed for this variety of minced. Oath imprint comes in eighteen fifty-five with Holy Moses but what about holy cow specifically it does indeed have ties to baseball but back before Kerry and Rosetto where even born pitcher for the Sacramento Wolves. Thirteen was known as holy cow Peter's according to a report in the Sacramento Union that year. But not even auto holy cow. Peter's could claim to have invented the phrase since that same year the Lincoln Star in Nebraska. Bresca noted that player Manager Charlie Mullen said holy cow so as early as nineteen thirteen people were saying holy cow at least in Sacramento Sacramento California and Lincoln Nebraska. The thing is cows are famously held as holy in Hinduism. They're not gods and they're not not worshiped but cows are considered sacred these gentle beasts after all if more to humans than they take in the form of milk and its products like butter and cheese and manure which we can use as fertiliser. There were a few English language books on India and Hinduism around in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries which coincides with the phrase popping up across America. It's unlikely that baseball players were directly referencing Hindu religious beliefs in creating their new minced oath. But it it is likely that holy cows were something Westerners knew about around that time. And if you're a baseball player who just struck out again and you're forbidden from swearing by elite. Holy cow might start to look like a pretty good substitute for what you'd really like to say.
