"I would never do on a Monday night Get together here on 94. W ipe the night after the eagle season came to an end. It was right about this time. I'm thinking nape side filled with trying old Eagle's down the field. Just not good and I were talking about I will talk about with you guys on the phones all night long to 1559 to 94 94, but I will put your lines on hold. For a couple of minutes because joining me on the telephone line is the guy you catch here on 94. W ipe you see on NBC Sports Philly and you read on NBC Sports Philly dot com. Our body. Mr. Rubin, Frank. How is your new year? Reuben? Everything is good. We're gonna talk six years, right? We're not talking eagles right sixties when again. They got the best record in the NBA. But now you and I are going to talk eagles that we're not gonna talk. Don Clendenin and the 69 minutes, either funny guy. Um, no, Uh, the Eagles 2020 version. How many years have you been coming? The birds now. Started during the strike in 87. Phil Sheridan became our columnist. So what 34 years 34 years? Is there any year that you would compare previous that you covered the Eagles? This one. Which one does it comp most to you? Or is it just something that you wouldn't want to compare to anything else, and it should stand alone in its own ugliness? Um, I think you know, probably The closest thing to it would be for me would be 2007 because You know they were really bad, but you kind of knew, And he wasn't getting fired. Um, just because you know that he had built up a lot of equity like they've had really bad seasons like under. I mean Ray Bob's last year. Protest last year. But you know the team is stop playing hard. You knew the coach was gone. 98 was like that 94 was like that. You know, even Andy's last season 2012 was like that. But this year, it never felt that way. It felt like there was just a really, really bad team. It was trying. They just didn't have any talent. S so I think that's you know 5 4007 the two really bad and the years when You know, they still have some good players. There was a lot of Different circumstances that led to the bad records. But you kind of knew that it was status quo. You're going to be on the coaching Watch the next year, but certainly a Dismal year. I mean to lose 11 games in this division is it's inexcusable if you and I can agree that this was a poorly constructed football team, talent wise spending wise. That points directly at the guy who's in charge of that? Who is Howie Roseman on esteemed general manager Tap manager. Everything else ondas far as we can tell, unless something drastically changes in the next 48 hours. He's going to be the man doing it again this offseason leading in the next year. What can he do? That could get him fired. If this season wasn't enough to get Jeff Laurie to replace him another yet we just do. The Eagles need to go over and 16. What? What is it gonna take for Jeff Laurie to fire his friend? I think that's kind of the biggest mystery surrounding this team while there's a few of them, but You know, Jeff Laurie's a smart guy. He's always hired well. He's always surround himself with good people. And, you know, I think how he's done some good things here. But Josh is drafting has been so bad. The last few years. I've got finished writing a story and we talked to how this morning and he talked about You know, J. J r, over Metcalf and and regular over Jefferson and Do that back to back to with on those two guys in back to back years. Um, yeah, you should pay with your job. I mean, there's no question about it. You know, they haven't If you acted one Pro Bowl player since the lane Johnson Zach Ertz drafted 13. And that was Carson. You know, he's he's not gonna be here. So you know be the last defense of Pro Bowl they drafted was Fletch 12 2008 years ago. So yeah, the talent level is is terrible. Um, how is just done a terrible job drafting, and there's no other way to put it and Um he seems toe just seems to have a blind spot for Howie Roseman and I You know, it's it's um It's a problem because I think the only thing You can do is surround try to surround Howie with with better personnel, people. That maybe he'll listen to On. Do you know those picks were not just how I mean they were consensus. Pick the organization so that they need they need some new voices. They need some new opinions. I need some new blood in that scouting department. Maybe John Dorsey will help of you. I don't even know if he'll still be here and you make it a GM job. But they need more guys like that. Who could evaluate talent? Okay. Were you talking about Carson? You know we can talk about her so we can talk about all these guys. It starts with talent, and they just don't have enough. I agree with you on that, Um, you brought up to I C He apparently was working for the organization for a period of time when I didn't know I don't think you know, because I was reading you all the time, and you had mentioned it and they've done a nice job of keeping it under wraps, and then it became common knowledge that he was working for the organization in some unnamed position, and it's still as in completely been defined for anybody. Uhm, will we ever find out what his position is that we need to wait until his position is either, uh, completely put on paper or that he takes a job somewhere else. It was nice that somebody was able to ferret that out. We still don't know where he stands in the organization. And what is the possibility of him going forward when we're going to find out out? Are we going to find that out? So here's the thing. Why did it become public? Because GM jobs are opening up and, you know he wants a GM jobs. So you know his people are gonna leak that. Hey, you know, Dorsey hasn't been Justin at home. He's been working for the Eagles. He's been, you know, consult. That's his title. Whatever and The Eagles generally and most teams, they don't announce these front office consultant type guys. They bring a man they come in for a few months between jobs. And so when, when his agent while I have no idea, you know where this story came from, but presumably.

"Back to the Jim Bohannon show at one eight six six five O, JIMBO is we look at the impeaches that is story in Brenda white apples, look at the trial of Andrew Johnson and the dream of just Dacian I gather, there was a brief honeymoon period in which it looked as though Johnson might get along with the radical Republicans. But that, that quickly changed, what was the, the, the major turning point, the, the crossing of the Rubicon, if you will. Well, there were several crossings, actually, it seems to me. I mean, it's you know when as I said, John's Johnson starts issuing executive orders. He's starts, you know, allowing he basically allows what we call states rights, you know, the issue one of the issues that the war was fought about in terms of home rule when he sets up so their state legislatures basically and starts. Can, you know, pardoning former confederates at the rate of almost a hundred day, a lot of these people started who had been thought of as traitors they started getting into not just government, the police force. So there was that there was the effort that he made to make these states part of the union again with, you know, by ignoring and running around congress. And then when congress started to pass legislation to help the formerly inflate. Saved of the south like civil rights legislation, which was only granting people citizenship due process. You know, it's, it's not really very radical at all Johnson, would veto this kind of legislation in congress would has legislation over his vetoes, then when congress decided had to enshrine civil rights in the constitution with the fourteenth amendment. Johnson went out on us, speaking tour that was that was lampooned is the Andes swing around the circle where he basically campaigned against the fourteenth amendment in started abusing members of congress saying they should be hanged that they were responsible for what had been now murders in the south murders of black people, and white loyalists as they were called or white Republicans, particularly in, in major. Cities like Memphis in New Orleans, where the, the there were massacres that had occurred and even union form. You know, union generals like, Phil Sheridan who is not exactly. A radical was so horrified. He said that he'd never seen anything quite like this in Johnson tried to suppress this, you know information, so it's getting worse and worse and worse as time went on. So did you wanna ask them? I wanted to I wanted to ask you, I guess about secretary of war, Edwin Stanton, who spent you say. Gonna say so what happened was congress thought. Well, you know, we're going to have to pass even more legislation reconstruction legislation, which basically, in franchise, the blacks of the south, and who the people who are going to protect them at the polls was military, the south is divided into military zones. And so in that particular case was in charge of the military was General Grant, and Edwin Stanton, who had been secretary of war under Lincoln, and in many cases, and many people thought that he was is much as Lincoln or grant responsible for the union winning the war. So, so the congress, congress want to keep standing in office, and they knew that Stanton by this time, couldn't stand Johnson and Johnson couldn't stand him. So they passed what was called the tenure of office act to protect Stanton that meant that none of people known of the people in Johnson's cab. Cabinet any civil officer who had been confirmed by the Senate needed Senate could only be fired with Senate approval. So Johnson to make a long story short, what he did was he fired Stanton anyway. And that that'll help rope live. We're down the path of impeachment. Now, I'll read that article two section for again, the president vice president and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for and conviction of treason bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors, unquote. Very short little section, there, don't want to the extent that you think that Gerald Ford was correct, when he had defined the criteria for impeachment as whatever. A majority of the house of representatives says it is at any given point in history. Tirelessly wrong. But it sounds terrible. And the reason he did not entirely wrong. Is that the constitution is very vague on this. So even if you go to federalist papers, where Alexander Hamilton writes that impeachment that pause for impeachment can be something like maladministration, or abuse of power. What does that mean necessarily? So in some sense, what happens is the what, what Ford means is that all you need is a simple majority in the house to vote for impeaching president, it's not the same as removing from office, and it's not the same as conviction. It's, it's the impeachment, which means then he goes, he because it always was a, he is, is tried in the problem, of course, is, we know what treason is we think we know bribery is, but what are high crimes? These days, you will we hear a misdemeanor. That means all. Well, it could be worse. It could be a felony. I mean, the term has somehow lost the meaning and context over the decades. And it didn't have it, then they know what that is do that could could, you know, misdemeanor be stealing chicken. Would you throw somebody out of office for doing that, you know, and also different states have different laws for what constitutes misdemeanor? So what's a high crime? You know what is it a high misdemeanor? And so these are very, very unspecific terms and conditions. And so in that particular case that's why I say, there's a way in which Ford is right, but congress is very, very rarely, as we know in our history, only Johnson and Clinton takes that step because it seems like and it is such a radical step because we have a democracy, and people voted the, you know, the chief executive into office with Johnson. However Johnson wasn't voted in this. He was the accidental president. So we didn't really have a constituency. He didn't really have the kind. Of base. Whether we call today that we think of a president is having to have gotten in we'll come back and we'll talk some more with our guest again. She is noted historian, Brenda, white apple, the book is the impeaches the trial of Andrew.

"CBS news update CBS news has learned that there was every indication that the United States was about to launch a limited strike against Iran, Ian surface to air missile strikes. But at the eleventh hour tonight, the US stood down for still unexplained reasons. It comes after the president earlier in the day said Iran shot down a US surveillance drone. He then said this Ron made a big mistake. This drone was in international waters. Clearly, we have it all documented, it's documented, scientifically not just words and emitted very bad mistake.

Back to the Jim Bohannon show at one eight six six five O, JIMBO we look at the impeaches that is story, Brenda white apples. Look at the trial of Andrew Johnson and the dream of just days. I gather there was a brief honeymoon period in which it looked as though Johnson might get along with the radical Republicans.

"phil sheridan" Discussed on Why Is This Happening? with Chris Hayes
"Right from the south who's kind of, you know, his closer nice because he was a tailor but can't handle the moment at all. You know, and contemporaneous, people at the time we're like, oh, they were horrified. They were whispering. They said you know what is he crazy? You know and, and Lincoln presumably, you know, reported to say keep when we, let's keep him away from me. In other words, I don't want to have anything to do with this guy. You know, we've one that's the end of that. And it was a vice president after all on which meant he was going to be inconsequential. Right. You know, we would. He served as purpose, basically, we vice presidents in the nineteenth century, can you count, you know, in that sense? So he'd served as purpose. Exactly. And he was an embarrassment. And, and then lo and behold, a month later Lincoln is dead. And Johnson is taking another oath of office. But this one is to be come the president, and it should have given more people. Pause. But people wanted continuity. I mean, how could you not? I mean you have a dead president, you have a war that's barely finished just about finished. But nobody knows the direction of the country, who is this person? You have to put all your faith in this person in the beginning, everyone is kind of, like, okay. We have faith in you going for them and trying to see the best in him. And he was the guy that stood up to the slavers of Tennessee. Not only that he had said, treason is a crime and must be prosecuted. So it seemed like he was on the same page of radicals who are basically saying, we have to change the entire. Tire structure in nature of the south, and we cannot let this happen again, and we have to really rebuild the country. So it seems that that was the case and he left Lincoln's cabinet intact to even the Democrats because he was a democrat. Even the Democrats said, you've got to get rid of some of these guys, you know, in the cabinet Johnson, wouldn't do it. He wouldn't list hidden. He never listened. Really listened? So then you have to major questions that confront the country, what to do with the states that seceded right how to reintegrate them into the union, and what posture legally and morally and morally the government takes towards the millions of four million, formerly enslaved people who had been deprived of schooling who had been deprived of the ability to move who had no jobs. No land didn't really in a sense on their own clothes on their back. What's going to happen to those people? Where do they go? Where are they going to live? Lots of those plantations have been confiscated, you know, who want them. Nobody knew I mean it's a it's an enormous problem. And what was also a problem in relation to the first issue, which is how do these states come back was that people who had been count. Counted as very fifths of a person are now whole persons. So if you count them toward representation in the electoral college, but you don't give them the vote then incense your we kind of populating the southern power structure, but not with people who can vote in their own interests. This is a really important point. So take away the moral question here and just looking at in political terms, recalled fry while I'm just saying for Republican northerners who have just thought this bloody war because of these asshole southerners, these treasonous others. And I'm just saying take away the people that have that are actually like about abolition gal just like the partisan practical, these assholes. Right. They waged a war against our government costs six hundred thousand lives. Right. Seven fifty seven hundred fifty thousand and counting seven hundred and fifty thousand that's the latest count. And we end up in a situation in which we take them back to the union. What the three fists are now full. They don't have any political rights. They have basically come back live lost their slaves, but we've just given them all this political power. Exactly. It's exactly right. And everybody knew that, you know, so that's becomes a tremendous problem. And then there are two issues that are related to that one is political power, but one is citizenship, even you know, so, so I you have to get citizenship before you even get political power political power in terms of the vote. So these are normal questions and you're right. Taking aside the moral question people in north would know that and they would be very wary about giving southerners that kind of a thority once again, even if they were loath and reluctant. To give people the vote, and there were many who were because women didn't have the vote. So there was an argument. Why are you not enfranchising women when you wanna win? Franchise black men. Give them the vote. And they can't read or write, and we can you say so there is a lot that was going on that had to be judicata that had to be ironed out and Johnson is in this mix and his position is just basically say that the southern states never seceded, just push them back in and of story. Yeah. Just come back in. Yeah. Which means that basically, the south will rise again immediately. And in fact, you have a situation in the south that you still have slavery by another name. In other words, you've passed eventually ratified the thirteenth amendment. There's no more institution of slavery. But in the south while he's sort of legislating without congress. What he's able to do is allow the south to pass these black codes. Cbs which makes it impossible for the formerly enslaved people in the south to move really, to marry to have all of the rights and privileges of a citizen. So Johnson's confronted with this. And he just starts to take unilateral actions in which he is giving huge pardons. Yes. Anyone who comes and says, I'm loyal now or pays pays you. You're back in. He starts pointing these provisional governors now, south, some of them are really dubious backgrounds confederates. And then you've got you've got, you know, you document in the book and there's great passages of this. I mean, basically they set to work immediately reconstituting, the power of white supremacist, a violent deadly white supremacy. They passed black codes. You have sheriffs rolling around in confederate uniform, I know shooting people shooting and killing. Yes. What are quote unquote Freeman? Right freeman. They that they kill a few white ones on the side to lists. We say they don't to one of the things and. This is one of the things I think it's important to get the conscience of the north as well. Right. It's not just racial is violent. It's also targeted at white loyalists people proceed oh, who are perceived, as Republicans and who were against the war effort. You know, in some southerners were fared at the sound totally, you know, so in that sense, the white loyalists, white Republicans, as well as all black people, you know, we're targets the Republicans and the northern abolition press are watching this happen as Johnson's basically what they see snatching defeat from the victory. The war has been won and now he's turning around and giving the southern treasonous leave power back, all of its power, re putting them in power, and they are, there are horrified and congress is out of session. Remember abound of congress, people go to Johnson and say, don't you think we ought to have a special session because, really? It's Congress's prerogative to decide who is its own members. You know, we decide who goes into the legislature and. He said. No. So he kept doing this. So all the things that you're enumerating, he was able to do that spring in that summer and early full because congress wasn't in session. I mean, that was forgetting the press for a minute. I mean to be in congress and watch your powers being taken away from you is horrific, that's called executive power sense, or to them was an abusive power in a loss of the balance of power. So that sets the stage for a couple of major incidents that end up pushing impeachment full, steam ahead and we're gonna get into that right after this. I'm chuckling Rosenberg. My new podcast youth truck Rosenberg is based on a simple premise thoughtful conversations with interesting people like Jim Coleman. Lisa Monaco and pre Peron. Each of them took an oath as I did to support and defend the constitution of the United States. The oath with Chuck, Rosenberg. Listen for free wherever you get your podcasts. There's two key precipitating incidents that really. Capture the imagination the north which is Memphis, New Orleans. What happens there that so captures the imagination of the country, particularly New Orleans? But Memphis to there were basically, what general Phil Sheridan, who is in charge of some of the southern states and he was away from New Orleans. And he said, there's no other word for what happened. Here was a massacre, and it was basically, there was a parade that was going on because there was a state constitutional convention being called in New Orleans. This was in late June early July and it wasn't just a white mob that went after the blacks, and also people who were going to the constitutional convention. It was firefighters and police. And the police was mainly composed of ex rebels ex confederates. It was a Malay was a slaughter. It was a mask or went on for three days, and in Washington. Johnson had gotten word that something bad might be happening, shall we send in the military Stanton, who is war secretary should have known. Nobody knows why he didn't do anything Johnson didn't do anything Johnson, basically authorized the mayor of New Orleans to go ahead with what he had planned because he said, oh, there's going to be trouble. And the mayor of New Orleans was a known confederate, and he had just recently been pardoned by John. So just to be clear there's a state Republican constitutional conventions. The Republicans are all gathering. It's black Republicans, white Republicans and of the war who'd fought for the union, and they're congregating in a place. And basically the mayor allows essentially state-backed militia, that's right to come in massacre. That's right. That's right. And then while Sammy is garrison and lets it hap-. That's right. And they come in a couple of days later and Sheridan as who I said, was outta town when it comes back, and he's horrified. But what is sees? I mean there there are bodies on the streets. And that happened in Memphis to not to the same extent earlier. There are bonded, some the street and people are afraid to claim the bodies on the street because they themselves were frayed. They'll be shot. I mean, that is so horrific and a congressional committee goes down to investigate, and that's how we know some of what happened because we're a lot of people testified to this congressional committee, and they were just they were appalled by it into the extent that they needed wake up just probably quite a bit. It woke up the north to what was going on in the south because before a lot of what northern journalists who went south were reporting was dismissed as propaganda or just isolated incidents. So, so this happened this person was running away got shot in the back. Well, these things happen, it doesn't really represent anything. Sort of scattered reports, and people sort of swept it under the rug. This was you couldn't deny tonight. And also because the military is I said couldn't deny the military was horrified. And believe me, the military was not made up of abolitionist are anti-slavery people. There were a lot of pro slavery people in, in the northern in the union military who are also, you know, for one of a better word radicalised, you know. So what's happening here. You've got Johnson who's taken these unilateral steps, violence and tyranny descending on the south, and the violence and tyranny starting to radicalize, white opinion, the north who were kind of I think ready to move on. Everybody was ready. But now sounded if that if we move on what we get is, these bastards are going to write come back and power, but one thing I wanna mansion. You're absolutely right. But there were people in congress, and this is very heart warming to me. And that's why I wanna mention who even before this happened had been. Sounding p alarm. We think today some of us soar some people think that we're you know, very woke or liberated or whatever. And if you know they were these people, and there were a number of them, who saw four saw this happening. If in fact legislation protecting the free people of the south and also the white loyalist if that wasn't passed civil rights wasn't passed if there wasn't a, a mechanism and institution called the Freedman's bureau, that was allowed to persist, and was fully funded if these things weren't happened than the whole country for the rest of its history, going four was in trouble. They saw this. There's people like fatty Stevens, and particularly who saw this radical Republicans who are white people committed to a vision of multiracial equitable,.

"Stuart, the beau ideal of the confederacy at the tongue, Jeb Stuart had twenty five hundred men, he plants himself between Sheridan and the capital and the battle is to the death much like two nights, meeting, emit, evil tires Sheridan. And Stuart this scene is a piece of the enormous success of a new book terrible swift sword. The life of General Philip h Sheridan by Joseph. We learned the success. Yes, here is that it's not romance. It's gory. It's massively violent, and you can see that the civil war is not about state policy. It's about men demand murder, and that's what happens this day as Sheridan rides towards Richmond. Joseph of very good evening to you. Congratulations. Jeb, Stuart and Phil Sheridan. Who are they at this point in the war may have eighteen sixty four good evening? Good evening, Jeb. Stuart was well known throughout the south and the north. He was the most famous cavalryman in the civil war at that point. Amazing raids at one point. He had encircle the union army during the peninsula campaign of eighteen sixty two. He dressed flamboyantly yet. Keep. Feather in his hat highly polished boots. Sheridan was more down to earth. He was a small man who wrote came from humble beginnings and rose quickly through the ranks of the union army, and taking charge of the cavalry. Coral is kind of a hard walkout fed at that point. Starting to get better. But in nearly every battle, Jeb Stuart's cavalry men had defeated them. So this was during grants. Big of, of, of may eighteen sixty four the overland campaign where a massive offensive with twenty thousand men, he crossed the rapid, Dan river steam down towards Richmond hoping to destroy army. Point in the battle shared and proposed that they just turn the cavalry corps loose down. And he said that he could defeat the southern cavalry and beat Jeb, Stuart quite a. Quite a statement to make at that time and grant, who liked Phil share aggressiveness. Said, well, go ahead and do it. And to, to take the cavalry corps ten thousand men, and they basically just marched down the main road toward Richmond. Very like it for miles an hour, hoping that Sheridan steward would see them in head head him off, so that they could do another words, they were going down there to make contact with the enemy, and, and kill as many as possible. That's right. And out front was a famous figure. Sometimes this is like an opera there only five characters in Joe and his name is Custer. He's leading the wolverines Michigan and they make contact with Stewart late in the day, and the, the fighting appears to be hand to hand. They flanked they charge. The cavalry corps is using Spencer, repeating rifles, which means that they could shoot at seven time up to twenty with before reloading much better than the single shot rifle. Nls or the pistols, and at very close quarters, you write a forty eight year old private in the in Custer's Michigan. Jonah huff. What happens, of course, Stewart was leading from the front has he always did when no one of the final attacks curve? He was on the left side of his position on horseback. Most of his men were dismounted. So he was a big target and. Was running by and he was a member of this special sharpshooter outfit before he joined the wolverines, and he turned in with this pistol, shot, Jeb Stuart in the side. He was dismounted huff was on foot and was on his horse shot him when he was on the run and Stewart slumped as saddle. And he's bleeding heavily and his men led the. His horse over under tree, and they helped him off and he was in very bad shape. He handed off command of his cavalry to Major General fitzhugh Lee, actually was a nephew, Robert. And then they took him down to Richmond. He died. The next day Sheridan, led the attack to rate into the outskirts of Richmond, he no, he couldn't hold it when the infantry showed up. But this is one of the moments that define Sheridan he is all aggression. He's a shark on land. And I find no explanation for this Joseph because he's born humbly March of eighteen thirty one. We're not even sure if he was born in New York America, or in, in Ireland in county cave-in. We can't be determined about that. No one knows. That's true. Yes, you know, he and his mother variously claimed Albany, New York, and Hieaux. But there is a stone Mark marker and county cave in Ireland, saying outside of the house thing. This is the birthplace. Phil sheridan. So it's probably very likely. That's where he was born there. No documents in New York or in Ohio stating that he was born in either place back in, you have to remember in eighteen forty eight which is when he entered West Point. And he gave his birthplace. He gets an appointment from a congressman and Ohio. Yes. Go ahead. Joe? He had to tell his birthplace and. The Irish were very much being. They were very much denigrated at that point because of the flood of immigrants coming over because of the potato famine. So Sheridan thought that would be one less. This is what I think, he, he figured that, that was one less strike against. You could just saves born in America, rather than go to West Point where they had a very impressive caste system and say that he's from Ireland. So I think that's why did he is in the cla-. He joins an eighteen forty eight the West Point on, on the Hudson and he throws himself in his studies. He's not a perfect or good student. He's determined. He's vigilant about being a student, but all around him, Joe in the reading of your book, I could just see the parade grounds at West Point, we were surrounded by the young men, who would become the generals and off. Fishers, and dead men of the civil war on both sides. That's right. Yeah. He was in a class with a number of others that fought on both sides over generals during the civil war. He was originally in the classic fifty two. He got kicked out for misbehavior for fighting and came back in the classic fifty three. So he was with crook and mccook and McPherson and hood and Scofield and Tara. Let's tell the Terrel story who is William Terrill in what happens. Tara was in, in Sheridan's eighteen fifty two class and he's Virginian so he's, he's very he's very high falutin in the class. Hi cast at West Point. Anyway, he was the drill master and this one day, and he kept he kept correcting Sheridan to, to realign themselves and everything chaired as being picked on, and he just blew up and he charged with a cry and occurs. He charge Terrel with his rifle and bayonet ready to impale and at the last minute at the. Recovered himself and went back and ranks calling out curses to them then they met later that day and they got an fistfight. Sheridan, who small did not do very well, but not only in the fist fight in the investigation of followed. And so he was suspended for year, and he had to go home. That's why he was kicked out and he came back in the class of fifty three. He graduates West Point he's assigned into the army as a bottom bottom officer breath, second Lieutenant, and I just note the romance of his life, he marries very well. But at this point at one point he sent out west and you make a note that he falls in love with a native American woman who is she she lived on this reservation in Oregon. Very beautiful woman, and it was not uncommon for army officers were.

"Absolutely. I'm John Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show. Peter cousins is here. Yes. We'll get to Custer soon enough and Custer's first blundering onto the planes when he shoots his own horse. But we begin with two Indian cheats who tell the truth. Peter cousins, his new book, the earth is weeping. The epic story of the Indian wars. One is set Tanta who is something of a blowhard. But when he gets a chance he delivers the message to the peace commission that comes out to be to talk the Indians into not resisting having their low land stolen. I know I'm going very fast, Peter, but it's very difficult than amateur reader to hold myself back your judicious. I'm the reader. I'm not Setanta says the building of the homes for us is nonsense. We would all die. My country is small enough already. He's telling them the truth. They don't listen. Do they Peter the peace counselors think he's lying to them? The they think he's foolish. They think he wants more when he's when he tells them. No, it's not so much that they think he's lying or that. He wants more. It's just again, one one of the common interests instances of people talking across purposes, and the and wanting very different things, the peace commission was operating on the principle a principle that had guided in very mad at the stations and with some some subtle. Differences had guided US Indian policy at least. As it was articulated since the foundation of the public, and it became more crystallized in the west. And that was the purposes were first and foremost to get the Indians off the overland travel routes where they posed as from the government perspective. Eight danger to settlers who are translating a Great Plains. Obviously any perspective. It was quite different. These tragedies sellers who are translating Great Plains destroying game filed following the country and and also had begun to settle on the planes. They wanted to so the government's purpose. What hit the Indians off overland travel routes to settle them on reservations, well, removed from the rows and much smaller than the land that they traditionally enjoyed remember these these were nomadic people you had tribes likes Atanta skyway who really never number more than say perhaps twenty. Five hundred souls who were accustomed to roaming across. Every everything from western Kansas. Southward. Deep into Texas. They roamed over huge swaths of land as the government's purpose was intention was to get them on smaller tracts of land. And then and then with within the context of the nineteen th century and nineteenth century thinking. There was a certain humane logic to the intent that was intent was not to physically exterminate them. But essentially to. In the powerless today. Chretien is and civilize them and turn these nomadic Indians into. Red. So to speak version of white farmers to make them into the image of the white man and make them into responsible respectable farmers on small small much smaller tracts of land. So from the things that the commissioners were offering the Indians, offering them houses schools farm implements from the government's perspective that was completed logical and had a had a a. Humanitarian rationale do it again from the point of from the perspective of the time. The of course, this was entirely foreign to them as one general later said you you might as well take a plains Indian and and put him into Elgin watch factory and expect them to become a watchmaking effort as it. Try to turn him into a farmer says something utterly foreign to them utterly foreign away of life that govern was proposing from a pneumatic life moving across the plains at their at their pleasure to suddenly being being shut up in a small cabinet and and compelled to work a small bit of land on land that frankly, the whites at that time believe was unsuitable for farming. So it was they were rejecting a way of life. That was utterly foreign to them. They were not asking for anything more anything with us. They simply wanted to continue their traditional way of life. As buffalo chips says you give us presence and take our lands that produces war. I have said all Sheridan comes to the same opinion. Sherman says there are attempts meaning the Indians attempts at civilization or simply ridiculous. So let's go to Custer who's a rascal and is charismatic at the same time. So it's impossible to get around him. Even though I very much appreciate the Indian chiefs in the war leaders Custer's first entry and Peter's book, he shoots his own. He's out on him. But that's sixty seven let's go to sixty eight because this with the seventh cavalry making a what Sherman calls predatory war at the battle of ouachita. Why does Custer attack? What does he believe he's going to achieve by attacking? Is acting under orders from is is immediate superior general Phil Sheridan that preceding summer and fall the tribes that he was going after specifically the southern Cheyenne, the southern arapaho had launched the numerous raids against settlers on the western Kansas and eastern Colorado frontiers in retribution for for white settlers taking their land and other provocations. These are these raids were quite grizzly and were again, and they were they were according to white way of thinking women being being gang-raped again bodies being mutilated. So and the army had proven himself absolutely incapable of fighting the Indian wars on their own terms during the summer and fall during. During fair weather. Thinking was okay. Let's go Astrum in the dead of winter when they're hunkered down in ten twenty thirty below. Weather in their teepees war ponies were gone in Hungary. They have no maneuverability. Let's go after them. Then when they're most fun and pay them back for the raise that they conducted that fall and summer and to show them that they are vulnerable that winter is not there ally. As India's always assumed it was the Indians never believe anyone could hit them in the wintertime. Particularly the plotting white whites and the plotting military who they were easily eluded during better times as year. So the strategy was hit them in in their villages in the winter and show them that they could be tracked down anywhere anytime, and if that involved collateral losses, well that was unfortunate. But that was part of the total war that Sherman and Sheridan were advocating against India's to their credit. It must be said. And it's it has to be said that. Neither neither Sheridan nor Custer ever advocated killing women and children as a matter of policy that although both Sheridan and Sherman made some some influence, it is public utterances country in their hearts, I do not believe they ever attended that. But that was in a in a scape. -able consequence of the sort of war that they were calling upon Custer to make attacking Indian villages at daylight, you know, in in morning twilight in the dead of winter attacking the Indians in their TV's. Obviously, these collateral losses were inescapable, and they were attacking they attack black kettles village attack black kettle because black village happened to be the first village he came upon when he was searching for the southern Cheyenne and arapaho and the great tragedy of it was very very few of the Indians who had stage these raids during the preceding fall. All in summer had actually come from black kettles village and those few who did acted without is a thorny effect acted contrary to black kettles wishes that was one of the that was perhaps the greatest tragedy of this tragic attack. Right black kettle ties. His wife dies much of the villages captured and Custer and his seventh cavalry, take ninety female hostages for plunder. They act like pirates back to the Ford. The rules of engagement are extraordinary at this time did Sherman and Sheridan. No, they were taking Indian women. Do they understand that back in Washington? Well, he certainly understood that there were women and children taken prisoner. And that was that was extremely expected and was of course, obviously preferable to in the eyes of the higher command and the government preferable to killing them outright on the field of battle. And also, you it was a matter of policy to take women and children prisoners because they were in a sense. They were marketing ships to bring warriors who were still inclined to make war to bring them to terms which is. At work that we're both ways because the Indians would then take white women and children hostages as well. And that becomes a trigger for many of the dramas that Peter has an endless number of dramas. We're just skipping between them we're going. Now. This is the first instance of Custer or going now to the last effort the last effort to make peace, but it's failing. So they make war on the southern plains and control it we now go to the politics of this because Peter has attention to that back in Washington. There's such thing as the Indian ring, what is that Peter. The Indian ring was a a sort of Lucy defined consortium and the term Indian ring was applied to those who were appalled by the corruption that was rampant throughout the bureau of Indian affairs, which then as now was charged with magic. Relations with the Indians when they were not at war with the government. And then as now was part of the department of the interior, although there was a throughout the Indian wars. There was there was wrestling between the war department and the interior department as who should have the Indian bureau under their control and within congress. There was a lot of back and forth on this because the Indian ring was seen as a consortium, and it was legitimate. So of corrupt Indian bureau officials in Washington corrupt Indian agents newfield who connived with Indian traders that is to say those people who are licensed to trade goods with the Indians. And also with nefarious local politicians in the west potential purpose of cheating. The Indians out of their annuity. Monies an annuity good. That is to say when the Indians signed treaty for the government. They were promised annuities. Either goods being blankets, clothing, farm, implements or cash and the he's corrupt Indian agents would cook the books and engaged in often resell these annuities through through Indian traders and through other other, you know, crooked person on the on the west and higher ups in Washington would look the other way or intern be paid off themselves for looking the other way. And then you had the politicians in the west, you know, senators and congressmen for whom. These positions as engineers were political patronage jobs there were ways of rewarding those who had who had supported their candidate season and helped them into office. So it was it was a it was a nasty mix of people, and it was very real. It was the grant administration there were attempts to clean it up and clothing, bringing the Quakers in the book is the earth is weeping. The epic story of the Indian west for the American Indian wars the American west Peter cousins is.

"Is we try to break the Bryce Harper story live on the air, if you have sources, or if you have a story you want to pass along we want to hear it? A couple of things today actually got Twitter ablaze early this morning. I wake up every morning. I searched Bryce Harper on Twitter. And usually it's about five or six things like, whoa. What's that? Is that real is that nonsense and a couple of things today? One. We're going to have Jack Jack sources over here debunk and the other we're going to I think there's something. All right. Let's talk about the backs. So this morning I woke up Jack. And I saw a photo of two custom made. Phillies bats would Bryce Harper's number and name on them. And then what was the symbols on? There was the liberty bell. Yeah. There's a liberty bell to love sign. It's all Phillies print, so it's like the thirty four with Harper on the light that the baby blue cool bat. That's a great that they've been his back company. So they are is back on. But if you remember his the battery using the homerun derby, which is the US flag they made that bat. So there was a there real the pictures real estate there. That's one hundred percent real. So what what is your sources telling you? So basically, they made those bats. So that they could send to him and just kind of try to sway him to come here. Part of the pitch. Yeah. Well, it was just like in Casey science here. They wanted to have him there. So that as press conference he could use them if they wanted to so there made like a week and a half ago, it's only their brand new or anything. So it doesn't mean he signed. And it does not mean a sign it's just that they made him because he's their back company and they want to. If he sounded just in case that he signs hearing us Matt Prescott far well two things. I have two thoughts. I have off of that number one. It doesn't mean he's going to sign here. And every team probably does something similar in sort of a pitch or they're back company might do it just in case. But I will say this the fact that that kind of thing is done does lead you to believe there is there's something real to all this. They are progressing along where there's enough of a chance that his company thinks he might sign here. They made those bats you wouldn't do it for the Baltimore Oriels. You do it for the Mets. You wouldn't do it for a team? There's no chance he signs with. So there's something there. The other thing that touch on. Then we'll go back to the lines. So Phil Sheridan and a couple of Phil Sheridan's journalist Phil Sheridan's couple journalists. And then there's also the manager of the home clubhouse for the Phillies. His name is Jeff or Phil Sheridan, excuse me. Phil Sheridan and his Twitter account says he's the manager the home clubhouse for the Phillies. I don't know, Phil. But he had a tweet last night is captured by long drive on Twitter who's. One of the tenants of the Phillies, Twitter and absolute machine. All he does he captured this. I guess Phil tweeted this last night, then deleted it. Yeah. Yeah. It was definitely meant to be a DM didn't seem like a tweet. It says Jake consented to Bryce make it part of the package. It does seem like more of a personal message. And then it was deleted. And I would assume here. Jake means Jake Arrieta. So do with that. Will you may? Yeah. I don't know if it's really I maybe there's someone in the shipping department named Jake. I don't know. Why would it be Jake Arrieta? There have each other's numbers. They do they have the same same agent. See there's another Jake floating around that building. There's a Jake and shipping or something. I don't know. It makes sense. Like, why would they be saying Jake Arrieta? All right to send to Boris Jack's rumor this hour, Jake in shipping. Let's see what Gary in south Philly. I say what's up, Gary. Hey, what's going on? Joe? First of all, I want to say I love your show because you listen to the people, and you take more calls than anybody else on this station. And believe me, I listen to it nonstop. Well, I appreciate that. I appreciate you being one of those calls, Gary, what are you thinking tonight? All right. Well, I gotta rumor, and then I got something real the rumor is that plumber that called earlier knows my wife's sister's brother who's a real estate agent and said that Nick foles at selling his house to Bryce Harper. Wow. Now. Some news here on the evening show. Okay. That's a good one. I know, but in all seriousness, and and you kind of answered my question, but I'd like you to reiterate a little bit. I guess from from hearing you talk I could understand a little bit wider wider waiting out. But as a fan like I just wanted to be done already. I want to know if this guy is going to be in uniform on opening day. And also why can't we get boat? Why can't we have Harper and Machado especially here in that? They're both twenty six I feel like Bryce Harper's open our butts for twenty years, it feels like it doesn't. I mean, he's been on twenty twelve but he he jumped in the league, and he was sitting right away. Yeah. I feel like he's been kicking our butts for years, and I would love to have them. But I would also love to have Machado to. And if that out earlier caller is correct with that really low salary cap. I don't keep up on that as much. But I I don't see why there's no reason why they can't sign both. I mean, how long are you going to rebuild for Wednesday? Come time to start looking to be in the post. Yeah. I think that time is now Gary man, I'm with you on that that the rebuilt should be over, and Gary I appreciate the call. And I think it's over. I mean, the Phillies are acting like a team right now that is trying to take that leap in our one of our callers recently mentioned the Clinton at the end of the year said they won eighty last year. The the goal is to make that ten win gap to get to the ninety one area to try to make the postseason it might take ninety two whatever I mean that you need to get into the nineties that realistic shot to be a postseason team. They're trying to bridge that gap. I the time is now that's why that's why Harper Machado at the forefront of this. And twenty six old superstars deny become available that often it's rare. It's rare and they're gonna show. L out two hundred million to someone else. I mean harp. Machado's market is falling. They're going to get both these guys on what seems like a discount. They could. I don't think they're going to it feels to me like they they don't want to get both could I don't think. So either I think if things keep falling leaf if Machado's offers really only one seventy five or two hundred million. I don't understand how you pass on that. I agree. I mean, I think the reason they'll probably give us they want to be flexible moving forward, you could read that as Mike trout and a couple of years. We'll see it's funny because I've read Todd's lucky today, and they'll be dot com. And he I think I'm trying to remember the word he put his article, but he said sources told him that they are not going to sign Harper and Machado. But then everyone that's written this last two weeks. It's kind of hasn't said, well, unless something crazy happens like they're leaving that door open. If something crazy happens, speaking of hedging, the one guy who's been so pro Machado. This all time has been Jim Salsbury. He's been saying the Machado has been the guy for the longest time and Eleanor recent at the yard podcast. He started to say that you know, it kind of feels like Harper's in this. The tide is turning a little bit which I think all of us kind of felt, but Jim has been on the other side of it with Machado step as far as the Phillies and paying these guys and what they could pay them. Look, they I'm sure right now, if the Phillies wanted to or any team that really really wants these guys could just make the crazy offer today and get this done, but I'll take you to last year. Last year the Red Sox and JD Martinez. It felt a lot like the Phillies and Bryce Harper. Where everyone kind of knew that that seemed like the landing spot. They had a good offer out there, and it just sat on it and waited and I think that's what the Phillies are doing. I don't think price Harper's market. And I find it crazy. But I don't believe Bryce Harper's market is robust. I don't think there are five or six or ten teams chasing him. I think it's one or two or three. And I think the Phillies realized they have maybe the best offer could have the best offer if they wait two weeks and sit on that offer. Maybe no one tops it. And they get them there. They don't have to raise the offer. So I get being impatient. I think this whole town is impatient. Because we've heard about this off season for years, and it feels like this offseason. Really hasn't arrived. No one is. I don't think anyone jumped up to buy season tickets for Andrew mccutchen, David Robertson. And gene cigarroa, even though. All three are good players. And we'll help the Phillies win more games. I can't imagine the season ticket office at citizens Bank park was ringing off the hook. Like, you guys got Darab David Roberts. Jason I'm in. I'm in gimme, a ten pack. I don't think that happened answer coaching four years ago that might have happened not the Andrew mccutchen. They've got now. He's a good player. Not a great player. Harper changes that so I get why everyone is impatient. But I really think that the play here continue waiting and get Bryce Harper at an expensive crazy number. But if you save forty or fifty million a year from now, we're talking about all this team needs. One more starting pitcher to win. It's a win a World Series. There's your forty or fifty million. There's a twenty five million dollars started. You can go get eight seven to nine ninety four ninety four. Let's see with Ron and Plymouth meeting. I'd say what's up, Ron? Hey, how you doing good? Ron what's up? I got I got to ask you a question. And then maybe discussion I just need to know why. This guy so badly. Because I. Why do you want to go for that kind of money that likes on a guy on the deal every year? I'll listen, and then we'll talk. Okay. Because I think he's a great player. And he's a rare great player that hit free agency at this age Machado fits the Bill in a similar way. I just happen to like Harper more. But they're both outrageously talented outrageously accomplished at a very young age. I mean, you look at their careers. Ron and I understand Bryce set some trips DL, but you look at their careers and just Bryce Harper just to use him because that's our conversation night. He's among the greatest young players ever. You look at his home runs at his at this age look at his you wanna look at advance. That's wins about replacing whatever you want to look at him. He's among the most productive. I'd say fifteen or twenty young players in the history of baseball guys. Like this don't become available very often. Well. No. I know baseball very well. I played baseball my life. So I I know what you're talking about. I'd be honest with you guys got a big guy. Okay. He's not a big, dude. He's what maybe six four maybe one ninety plays heart. And and he does have unbelievable back. He's bigger than that. Ron before you go on he's bigger than you think. He's about six threes. Let's says maybe six one six two, but he's a he's well over two hundred twenty two fifteen he's bigger than that. Okay. All right. Well, still. I'm looking at. I'm looking at it the same way I'm looking at which with this with this history that he's got and the money that he's he's trying to get and the injuries. I'm just not signing up for that. You know, what I mean got an article I got something else. You know, we're talking about this guy over here, you know, and this is going to seem idiotic. But you know, we we want to get this guy. But we we've got we've still got holes all over this this team. There aren't even we haven't even addressed the catcher yet. I mean, I love that mov- they pulled shortstop that's a girl. Yeah. Cigarette and move back to first base. That sets three problems right there next a couple more, and we don't need to spend that kind of money to fill that diamond upward hiring heroin. We don't. Is it a nice is it a nice to have a great player like a game changing fired standard. I get it. And a lot of teams a lot of teams run over the years have gone different routes. They don't and and there is risk. And I appreciate the call around. There is risk assigning any player, but two things one. But Chato by the numbers has been more durable. But I worry about his knees. He's had two knee surgeries. And he's a young guy and the other thing on Harper. Early in his career. You look at Bryce Harper really was two thousand thirteen two thousand fourteen those are the years. He was on the DL a couple of times, and it kinda worried you since two thousand thirteen so it's been four years two thousand fifteen sixteen seventeen eighteen the only time, he's really miss games. Significant games was two thousand seventeen he slipped on a wet base in two thousand fifteen he won the MVP one hundred fifty three games two thousand sixteen one hundred forty seven I guess that may be one fifteen day the Elston last year one fifty nine he slipped on a wet base in two thousand seventeen he's really a wet Bassora away from four straight one hundred fifty game seasons. And in two thousand seventeen is probably on pace to win the MVP, even though even though Giancarlo had fifty Harper was another level that year, he had a one thousand eight PS. Yeah. When he got hurt and they came back, and he just wasn't the same..

"Going to be as encouraging as they were last night. Sooner or later that's going to hang right? If he doesn't turn it around. And by the way, as to expression to us. To use the expression turning around kind of implies he was one somewhere. Right. Know, I unless you want to go back to when he was planning college. I don't know. He's never had a game. Good enough to say, he's got gotta turn it around. Maybe he needs to put up those seven hundred shots. Like Reggie do. See what goes on with that? There's very few players in the history of the game. They had they're kind of discipline. Miller had I wonder I wonder what Steph Curry's shooting regimens. I wanna does something similar. Yeah. Yeah. I think couple of years I think he put up about. But I'm not really sure. No, no, no, no, no Miller dodgy every day. Now in practically no if he's got a game is seven o'clock starting in Iran to thirty three o'clock Miller would start taking his seven hundred shots to warm up, and I know Larry Bird, you should do a similar thing to the greatest shooters in history of the game. I wonder if Steph curry does something similar. Very probably, you know. You would take. So I mean. Hopefully, Marco this. I think the fans are private starts getting crazy chair probably about halfway through the season. But I hope that you stick it in dorms because you know, he could beat the b valuable design work on suit. I at the moment. I I I have no idea if he's ever going to be something valuable or not. And I don't think six when you say half the season. Well, that's forty one games. Now, again, half of those games are on the road. I don't think the sixer fans are going to hang in there for half the year. I don't. I'll try my best to. I I want the best for him. I want the best for the team me too me too. Yeah. Who's your quarterback? Oh, well, we're what he was talking about Russia quarterbacks. The first lady came to my mom. Randall Cunningham watching her because I'm a younger guy. I'm only about I'm on eighteen right now. So I don't most people listed by way before hours watcher football. But USA, I came to my mind. Well, no doubt will put you on a whole need just one of those classic. Serena Williams keychains. Randall Cunningham is second all time. Only one quarterback in the history of the N F L has more than Randall Cunningham four thousand two hundred excuse me four thousand nine hundred and twenty eight rushing yards. Johnny one quarterback has more yards. Then that if if Cam hits his yearly average what he usually gets he'll sit down here at some hill pass Randall this year, he will he won't get the number one this year, but barring injury, he's. Going to retires the greatest running quarterback ever, certainly if he does not get hurt and who wants to get hurt. I don't think anybody to get her. Let's say I do Steve down there in Tampa. How you doing Steve? Well, good morning. How are you? I'm fantastic. You know, you mentioned W F, I L restaff our idea. You remember Phil Sheridan? Was he a traffic guy? He's the guy from six to ten. No. I don't. Sixty WF. I I. When I think those days, and there was F I L, and there was w I g. Take the high lit and Joe Niagara and George Michael's Angie's, and oh who is the weather man passed away because he was at this Jackie. I Tim O'Brien Jim O'Brien. Oh, yeah. Gerry O'Brien to? Yeah. They're they're like jocks from a million years ago. But I remember them all well, not old. But I do remember. Thank you very much. I think the biggest problem he's going to be easier. Add or Colonel lease. And regal commit. Penalties third down and long and it will be a five year. Apparently, you know, America. I doubt they were. They were not as penalized as much against the giants. The giants might have been the game. So far this season with the lease flags. Turn against you. Eagles. Before that when walk. Breath was brutal. Yeah. I think going into the giants game. The eagles were the third most penalized team in the late. And I think now. No. I don't know where they're at at the moment. I would think the giants game would drop them a little bit there as far as being penalized. But yeah, it's not been a good year for them. As far as penalties are concerned. And I see the play calling after the first series last week the play calling changed where wins. I think I got sacked. I remember times and of sudden legal started throwing screens and running. It looks like the whole philosophy of the offense. Change was for the good. I wonder why you took so long. To figure that out that you're wanna get webs hurt. So you've got so you got you got me. And supposedly you can throw the ball very well against Carolina. So. Look for look for look for a lot of passes on Sunday where does Carolina's defense rate. You know, I don't know their middle of the road yards wise their fifteen th against the run fifteenth against the pass give up like twenty three points a game. I think. Well, that's about average. Yeah. By the way, you know, we we had a conversation a couple of weeks. Flyers goaltender. And you said there was a kid. I think in minor league who they were going to bring up a year. You remember? I do. Yes. Carter heart and they're waiting for. It's it's not about what the team needs. It's about the kid being ready to play in the NHL because it's the best league in the world. If he's ready they'll play him. They just don't believe him to be yet. I would love to see him. I think he's the best goaltender in the organization. But he's twenty years old. Most goalies don't play until later on. He's got all the credentials. He just has to you know, put it together in the minor leagues. And show that he's ready for a promotion, and he has it been dominant down there yet and the season just started. I think they wanna give them at least most of the year down there. One final point big daddy. Do you know who is right? The flyers above the GM. Who is running and flies above the GM? No, I do not. Okay. Thank you very much. And why you want to write him a letter or something? Why? Why why not why not? I mean it gets. Question where fires get bad? Iraq. Started was alive. I sure there'd be a whole bunch of by now, and I wanna Lewis. Either led to go where the coach go or how bad is it have to get. Okay. I hear your point in tanks had a call. But all those changes Ed Snider made over the years. What did it end up resulting? Yeah. That's like, I it does feel nice when the team starts out owned three, and you fire the coach here all of a sudden guy you signed to a big contract isn't producing. So at trade him after a week, but it didn't work like that's why they went forty years without a Cup because they went for it every year. And that's why Hextall had to dig them out of this whole that they were in because they went for it every single year from like, the Lindros era up until about twenty thirteen and they had no prospects. They had no cap space. They had no draft picks, and it's really hard to recover from that. They're getting I still believe in the plan. Is this all the time? Like how bad would like what would Hextall have to do to lose his job? I wonder I think the guy running the team is Dave Scott. But I like is Paul does. They gave Paul home grenade. You're fired up kind of promotion. I don't think Ron Hextall answers to him. He's the one who got the minutes mess after Bobby Clark. I I do wonder if this was maybe an over correction like we had no stability for so long. Now, we're just gonna ride everything out eight eight eight I'm sorry. My eagles are fourth and penalties behind Pittsburgh Kansas City in Green Bay. I think. The giants came. So they improved by one notch because they did not have a lot of flagstone against them. They probably relatively clean game in that. The reps wanted to get out of there too. Tired of looking at their tired of looking at Eli. Everyone's looking at eight eight eight seven to nine ninety four ninety four eight eight eight seven to nine ninety four ninety four what I have here in my hand because we are the eagles are playing Cam Newton this weekend. Who by the time this season is over Cam Newton will move ahead. Randall Cunningham, I had the top ten rushing quarterbacks in the history of the N F L give me one of those ten in some good conversation. I hope you're sitting down when I tell you what your prize will be not a Serena Williams refrigerator magnet. No, no, no mean Benny up our games, we're talking. Serena Williams key chain here. Bill O chain like a key chain eight eighty Noah keychains, you should be my favorite. Were gas station. They they would have the key like on a cinder block. I never understood that. Who was like plotting and scheming to pull into a gas station. To steal the key. Scummy bathroom, we always stole the locker room keys at the hockey arena..
