"And when she said she was going to go to the cops or as Romero junior apparently put it when she got ballsy. The men killed her. Excuse me for a moment. Thank you. According to mister Brown, sheriff Romero knew his son had participated in the abduction rape and murder of Tara calico and didn't do anything about it in order to protect his son. Not only that, but Ramirez senior then hired sheriff Rene Rivera because he apparently had their backs and would continue the cover up. The deputy who recorded this deathbed confession, Frank matola, told Melinda Escobar about it. He said he contacted the person who was still in charge of Tara's case at the time, who happened to be sheriff Rene Rivera, and handed over the notes and cassette recording of the deathbed confession. When Escobar went to find the tapes and notes, there was no documentation of either in Tara's file. Either deputy mathologer was lying or someone took the evidence he handed in. And got rid of it. According to myola, sheriff Rivera had also been in charge of investigating Lawrence Romero junior suicide and that apparently he'd left a note in which he confessed to Tara's murder. But that the note was never entered into evidence. But here's the thing. There's no evidence of any of this, and all of it at this point is gossip. Plus, it turns out, deputy Frank mitola himself is not exactly a stand up guy. Sometime around 2010, miola was arrested and charged with attempting to make an arrest outside his jurisdiction and tasing someone in the process. And the citizens of his town in loving New Mexico were very familiar with brand of policing, which was often rogue and included excessive force. Apparently after mythologies arrest, and after allegedly wrecking two patrol cars, sheriff Rivera tried to have him fired. Instead, all the resigned. Jesus Christ this case. Melinda Escobar for her part has uncovered a lot of questionable things in her amateur investigation into her friend's disappearance. For one thing, she told the sun online that when she got Tara's case files, quote, they were in shambles. There were files with people's names on it, and there was nothing in there. From what she has been able to determine through hundreds of interviews with people in the community, she believes she's solved the case, but that there's not much she can do without any authority. She believes a group of boys who knew Tara and knew where she'd been that morning, plan to run her off the road, attack her and kill her. She believes Tara is buried somewhere within 20 miles of where she went missing. She hopes that as people associated with the case begin to pass away, and others feel more free to come forward with the secrets they've been keeping. The truth will come out. Her case file has 25,000 items. She refuses to hand it over to the sheriff's department, which, if you ask me, is a smart move considering the mess she found the files in to begin with. She has, though, shared the file with the FBI and has released a 24 episode podcast called vanished, the Tara calico investigation about her findings. It seems she's migrated the show to Patreon, so it's now behind a paywall. And then, just about a year ago, in October 2021, the FBI announced that they were pursuing a new lead in the case and were offering a $20,000 reward for any information leading to the whereabouts of Tara calico. They even set a search warrant had been issued, but as of this writing in October of 2022, no arrests have been made. I think it's pretty clear what happened to Tara on the bike ride that September morning in 1988. It seems it was somehow the best and worst kept secret in Valencia county. Shamefully, the people in charge chose to protect the perpetrators and their accomplices rather than seek justice for a young woman cut down in her prime. But where is Tara? Surely someone knows and might find it in their hearts to at the very least drop an anonymous note to the FBI directing them to arresting place, it would literally be the least they could do for Tara and her family. The ongoing search, the mystery, the questions left unanswered have only prolonged the pain this family has suffered. Then again, can any amount of information solve the broken hearts of her friends and family? There's no clear path forward from the disappearance of a loved one. Ask anyone who's ever been privy. There is only the strange future following the unexplained past. And the brave people who find their own way of

"Three years after Tara had gone missing, tensions between the doles and the county sheriff Lawrence Romero senior were rising. The doles believed the department wasn't doing enough to help find their daughter to which Romero told the Albuquerque journal, quote, I don't think I left a stone unturned and 29 years of law enforcement I haven't seen anything more frustrating. End quote. The department was understaffed and beleaguered and yet deputies would chase down whatever lead they could traveling to Oklahoma to see if a runaway someone had seen was Tara or searching abandoned mine shafts. Despite the majority opinion that Tara had likely been killed the day she went missing. Apparently, according to the Albuquerque journal, detectives would call the dolls to run any theory by them. Quote, maybe Tara was a courier hired to take drugs to Mexico that may be Tara was peddled to a black market in the near east that may be Tara had been captured and tortured by satanic cultists that may be Tara had been hit by a drunken driver who then carted her off. It may be Tara took off because she didn't like her mother. Ah, yes, when all else fails, blame satanists or the mother. And then, in 1991, sheriff Romero senior suffered his own tragedy when his son Lawrence Romero junior shot himself to death in his rented trailer home. Romero senior said, quote, I know the dolls pain. I really do. At least I got to bury my child. I mean, it's a little different friend having your child disappear and devoting the rest of your life to finding them and losing your child to suicide, but okay, I'll allow it for now. In 1993, the Valencia county DA's office took over the case from the anemic sheriff's department. Contract investigator J eschenberg, who is described by the Albuquerque journal, basically as Tommy Lee Jones in the fugitive, inherited a thick stack of files on the case. Eschenberg also found himself at odds with the Dole family telling the journal, quote, I love them dearly, but I won't discuss the case with them anymore. We've come to differ about some things. Pat was still convinced the terror was alive and wanted every lead pursued. Eschenberg, on the other hand, believed that there was a trio of individuals whom he refused to name, I think because of lack of physical evidence, who he thought ram Tara off the road abducted raped and killed her. Meanwhile, pat was still chasing down every lead no matter how cockamamie it might have been. So called psychics from all over the country would call to tell her they had visions of Tara getting onto a bus in San Diego or that she was in an abandoned barn and Kentucky or that she was eating tomatoes with cheese and Italian dressing, which was apparently terrorist favorite snack. This last one, pat said, put her in a chill. But eschenberg chalked it all up to coincidence and said that the circus element made his job much harder. The whole thing was wearing down on pat as well. 8 years of dogged determination, years in which she carried guilt at shortchanging her other children and pursuit of Tara, and apparently surviving on a diet made up mostly of black coffee and cigarettes, took its toll on her well-being. In August of 1996, a good friend of pat's died, and then pat had to investigate an apparent suicide on the railroad tracks as part of her job. And then, Texas law enforcement officials called to say they'd found a skeleton and some tennis shoes that were similar to the ones Tara had been wearing when she disappeared. The dental records didn't match, and this seemed to be the final straw. Her blood pressure was skyrocketing. She was exhausted and sad. It was only at this point that pat received any mental health support. Look, I know things were different in the 90s, but lord have mercy. Please, please, please. Go to therapy. Pat died from a series of strokes in 2006 at 64. Three years after moving to Florida where she hoped not every single thing would remind her of Terra, but where she also feared Tara wouldn't be able to find them if she did come home. She honestly never gave up hope. According to crime magazine, one of her last to do lists read, laundry, vacuum, dust, right letter to FBI. And then, in 2008, Valencia county's new sheriff Rene Rivera told the Albuquerque journal. The individuals who did the harm to Tara, knew who she was, they knew who she was and their all local individuals. And I believe that the parents of the attackers were some of the people that helped the individuals with hide in the truth or hiding the body or trying to escape prosecution. I'm sorry, what? Pardon me? Not only that, but Rivera said that he had known for years who had done it and who had helped cover it up. That it wasn't much of a secret in certain circles. The reporter for the journal was like, um, why haven't there been any arrests then? And Rivera explained that without a body, they couldn't prove anything. But he believed that the people living with the secret, the people who'd been carrying it around for 20 years were bound to break and come forward in order to relieve their consciences. That's an awful lot of faith in humanity, bob. An awful lot. When Tara's stepdad, John heard this news, he said, I thought it was silly when I heard it. There's such a thing as circumstantial evidence, and I know another place is they've gotten a conviction on strong circumstance evidence. It should never have been said unless they are the sheriff's department is willing to make an arrest, angle forward with it. Despite Rivera's claims that he knew who had done it and that people would be coming out of the woodwork any day now to clear their consciences, it was another decade before Tara's case began to heat up again. A friend of Tara's Melinda Escobar had finally decided that enough was enough, and she took it upon herself to investigate what had really happened to her friend all those years ago. And what she found was just, I hope you're sitting down. First, in 2013, a man named Henry Brown made a deathbed confession in which he claimed to have seen what he thought was a dead body wrapped in a blue tarp and a makeshift basement under Lawrence Romero junior's trailer the night of Tara's disappearance. Yes, the former sheriff's son. Brown said that Romero junior and a man named Dave Silva then discussed how they, along with another young man named Leroy Chavez had intentionally hit Tara with their car. Put her in the back of their truck, drove off to some gravel pits where they raped her.

"Lot of it to be honest with you is bad draft and that player development th. There's an excuse that people make which is well. They've been contenders they've had to trade away a bunch of guys. Yeah but a lot of those traits happened years ago. Now that's kind of a convenient thing to keep saying. Look mike rizzo's been a great general manager but his recent draft track record is very good and the nationals. For whatever reason at the minor league distance just aren't developing dies like a good organization. Should there in kind of a slump when it comes to that and so they're fun system is regarded. It's not just like one of the poor one. It's regarded as the worst one in baseball and not just by like one ranking system by like multiple people out there so they really have to fix this because nothing doomsday club in the long term. More than a bad form system you've got to be able to replenish talent at the major league level at not been able to do that. One of the really glaring things about this national has been when the nats call someone up from the minors. It's always someone in his third. It's someone like geraldo pora or yada yo hernandez or this guy's palo it's you know that's don't have young blood ready to come to the major league level. Then that's when they needed extra bodies haven't gone to the miners even been active dumping trade. Ross escobar you. Know where or sign this guy rene rivera to be. A catcher dies in their thirties. Guys who people thought were shot. That's the that's the terrible state of systems. They really have to address that and spoke to me at the very least all of the free agents to be need to be traded. All of the guys leave team for nothing at the end of the season did to be traded so baxter's brad hand daniel hudson kyle workers yacht gome josh. Eric didn't go six guys should be done. Come four pm eastern on friday I hope that's the case. We'll see if that's the case. What about trade turner so with him. You can't wait. He's not a free agent until after next season. So you've got a year plus left of control on them. The recent trend with guys like that has been for the you'd be traded in the offseason thinking about francisco door thinking about buki bet but if you can get a good deal for him now i would i would trade. The issue becomes okay. Well don't you want to keep them long term. You do two things one after next season so in other words After his contract is up he's going into his age thirty season. So you know you'd be in that dicey spot of paying a guy in his thirty's for what he's done in his twenties and that's one of the things that get clubbed trouble. Then that's could actually end up playing this in like the ultimate analytical way which is you have a guy in his twenties peak physical years you underpay him because he's in his arbitration years and then you let someone else overpay on it in his thirty years and declined years and so if turner is asking for lindores money lent door for the got a ten year three hundred forty one billion dollars deal. I liked returner. I'm not paying them that. I'm not giving them a three hundred million dollar contract especially offbeat the buckle. That now is the stephen strasburg contract so if you can do turner safer one hundred fifty million. Maybe two hundred billion. I'd be open to that. But if this is going to be one of these mega-deals i i don't blame them for not signing up for that so i would look to trade them. But you don't have to do this week. You can wait until the office. I want to follow up on the strasbourg. Deal being disastrous deal. Where do you. Where does max scherzer go. And what are they. Get back for max scherzer. I know people aren't going to understand or know the names. But what would you be looking for coming back kind of general way to evaluate prospects is that there are the top one hundred list that come out for baseball america something called mlb pipeline. Which is the prospects. Arm of mlb dot com. What you're looking for here are hopefully multiple top one hundred prospects now. I don't know how likely that is the market for these trade Has come down in recent years so like getting a blue chip prospect back for two month rental. Used to be something you could do it. Something that the yankees famously did. When they traded away aroldis chapman got back labor. Tour as you're not seeing that happened as much now so i think you really unfortunately just have to take the best that you can get the best offer. So there's a lot of talk about the national league west teams. You know that that is an arms race right now that division. It's nothing else with the giants dodgers at the padres. So perhaps you can inside a bidding war between those teams Maybe a team like the boston. Red sox is is You know with the season. Boston's having like the open shirts. Or maybe the yankees who you know you would think are desperate might be open assurance by there are definite teams. That are in on him. It's important to keep in mind to max's what's called ten and five guy ten years in the majors. Five years saints team the last five years we've got Trade Veto right so he can dictate where he goes. You can not approve trade. The one spot would approve a trade to another spot. the reporting has been. That hill approve a trade but it just has to be to a team of his liking. So you know you're going to have to work through that that's why by the way that's neat to settle on deal or cancel deal soon because it may take some time to work through the no-trade stuff with mac so you can't just do the deal at three fifty nine on friday. You're gonna have to figure that out. Probably by thursday and then get back to the max day. Okay we have a deal on the table with the dodgers or you good to go with them and And and play it from there. I've read the same thing where they have to get this done quickly. Because of the you know the list of teams that he might not accept a trade to. Why don't they just find out right now. The teams that he doesn't wanna get traded to and work off of that. There might be a benefit to letting this go until the last minute and having you know a true bidding war heat.

"Set out the season. But he's fine. Now. I would say they would want him or Matthew Bold E. Who was the wilds first round pick a couple years ago who is prepared to play right now in the National Hockey League, and he's a big forward winger sort of plays like a hybrid center. I just don't get of score north talking to us yesterday about the Minnesota wild and options for the Sabres if they were to trade Jack Eichel, Sam Reinhart to the Minnesota while we've checked in with Minnesota. With Anaheim and, uh, just playing a waiting game at this point. Howard's off today. Sal Carpaccio. Zane will talk to Marty Baron coming up in a couple minutes about Rene Robert and his memories of Rene Rivera passed away at the age of 72 yesterday. The, uh The one thing about both the Ducks and the wild as well. That throws a wrench in not a ranch. It's just it's a wrinkle. I'll put it this way. Sal, you know as a as a new GM on the job for Kevin Adams. He has a complicated deal to work out because I thought about putting this up as a Twitter poll yesterday if we accept that there are going to trade cycle and Reinhardt What do you want? In return? You want the best possible, singular player you can get. That's the idea of Matthew could shark or, you know if you're trading Eichel to Minnesota, is that Who do you threw out there? Some of the players you might get off that roster, not the prospects, but I mean actual players, you know? Do you want a player that you know is good? Or do you want as many pieces as possible, Right? Three prospects. Two first round picks, So your cupboard is kind of full and your your lottery. Whatever your your scratch off tickets. Who's Who's the best, Um, the best package of players in return. Whoever gives you the best player or the most pieces In addition to that kind of question You know, you're comparing these prospects versus these players. The expansion draft. So Jason on Twitter at Park, Locke J. Mentioned this yesterday with regard to Anaheim. Trevor's eager is Jimmy Drysdale do not need to be protected in the upcoming expansion draft, while a number of other players would need to be protected in the expansion draft. Um, a couple of the pieces that you might mention that are younger players. So the complexity of this this deal You know, trading Jack Eichel should not be difficult because you have so many players are so many people that are interested so many teams would be interested. But between what to do about it, the medical thing with Jack the teams that might be interest because of that, the salaries, blah, blah, blah, taken back a bad contract, and then all of that and how it affects your expansion team. Your expansion roster. I should say. You know you if you pick up to three players that need to be protected. All of a sudden A couple of guys that you did not want to expose are going to be exposed and you're kind of in a way. Indirectly trading that player away. Maybe as well. You know, if you all of a sudden exposed Rasmus Aspelin like, Oh, I didn't want to do that. So the timing of all that it's it's a very complicated thing for a GM in his second season to be to be dealing with given all of the different wrinkles to it. Well, I think I have an answer on what I prefer. At this point, I could dive more into it myself in my own brain and change. But first I want to say I just hate the fact that we are even we're here. I just hate it every day. I hate it. It's the job. We got to talk about it. I know why I get it like that part of it. It's become so routine right now to just talk about trading Jack Eichel that it bothers the heck out of me. It does. I hate it. I, It's It's just Oh, yeah, Let's talk about train Jack Eichel today and let's call this team and were they going to get form? I'm I'm just furious that we're here. I really am, And it's bottled up because They should have never happened. And we can discuss the myriad of reasons why, and we have our own. We have our own takes on what happened 56 years ago to get here and all the decisions and all the sense and what should have been done. What could have been done since then? The many different people come into this organization that had anything to do with it. It didn't that made bad decisions to get here today. In the summer of 2021. Who routinely just talk because we have to, and we are and it's not. This is not a criticism what we do, or you do or, you know, or anything I know to routinely just talk about trading Jack Eichel, a 21 24, now 24 year old player. This. What was supposed to be in his, I think can be still a generational talent. And why why he's on this roster in the first place to be here. Really upsets me. It really does. Yep. It should. It should. Yeah, for me. I mean, I I am Upset about it, but it's kind of thing where Except the things that you can't change and I can't change it. I can't do anything about it. I wanted to save her. I think that they got to this point by decisions made two and three years ago. They They set themselves on a really horrible path and got to this point, so I don't know what to do about it other than say, like I It comes down to rooting for the team, right? I'm rooting for the Sabres here. I don't have anything against Jack Eichel. And I'm rooting for the Sabres. And that means that In a bad situation I want them to do is as as well as they can, which You know, it's a little bit of how if we go back to the tank, how that work? Why do people root for them to lose? Because they wanted to root for them down the line, you know, so I don't want them to trade The Ah. I don't want them to trade Jack Eichel, but I know they're probably going to so now that they're going to I have to root for them to do the best they possibly can. Ryan O. Reilly was similar Rhino Rhino Riley When we go back to that, and how that happened, you know they did not decide to trade him because he said he lost his love for the game. They were shopping him at the deadline. They wanted to move in a different direction and There are a lot of different reported reasons or rumored reasons or whatever..

"Paul Hamilton on for a quick coach watch. Update. Sabres Update playoff update But also to talk about the career. The life of Rene Roberto passed away the age of 72. Howard's off today. Sal Carpaccio was in Britain's here as well. Morning, Paul. Morning. How are you today? How's things beautiful day out there? Great hockey. I mean the enjoying the playoffs. I'm not enjoying the refereeing, but I'm enjoying the playoffs. But I'll say that every playoff year because I I just don't agree with how the NHL referees Playoffs. They basically throw away their role book and you know it's It's just they go with the theory. Let the players decide the game. Well, I think if you call penalties that are actually penalties you are letting the saber the players. Inside the game. If a player commits a penalty, that's a player to say the game is not a referee deciding it. Um, so to me. I've just never agreed with that. That's like, Well, let's throw away the whistle and let the players decide now and you. Yeah, there'd be a lot of power place to start if they decided to actually use the NHL roll book. In the playoffs, but it would the players would get get used to it very quickly, and, uh, they they would adapt to it, Do you? Do you see any one team that's being that's that's getting a benefit here or a type of play. Is it just frustration about type of play? No, it's not just one team and all the teams get bad calls or don't get calls. You know, from time to time and you know, to see Corey Perry laying on the ice with, you know, bleeding from his nose rather profusely and and no call and Um, you know, that's just one that comes to mind right off the bat, but just anything, especially by the time you get to the third period, you basically have to shoot the puck out of the arena. That's the only thing that usually gets called. Because they have to. You know when, when the puck goes out of the arena, it doesn't hit the glass or isn't touched by somebody. And that's that's one of the cheapest penalties you can call. But that seems to be the only thing that ever gets called once you get to the third period in the playoff game. Yeah, it is something that's cut and dry. They don't They don't have to think about that. That's an easy call because no one would criticize them for From making it up. You can kind of see when it happens. I was watching. Paul was watching the Tampa Islanders game that ate nothing game and they did call penalties in that game once they got out of the first period, with Tampa, up three to nothing. I mentioned this yesterday that You know. Oh, look, they're calling penalties all the games already out of reach, So it's almost like, you know, almost like there's this idea to Hey, get the calls in now, while we can, Because now we're not affecting the game. It's already through to nothing. Yeah, they're trying to keep the game under control because it's going to get chippy. You know when it's like that, and And things like that, and I can go back. I even remember back. You know, in that Pittsburgh series, where Darius Kasparaitis scored the game winning goal, the series winning goal against Dominic Akashic. Right before that. He had gotten a puck where he actually Grabbed the puck in his glove. That's a penalty right there, and he threw it over the glass. He blatantly just took the puck. He grabbed it and threw it and it went over the glass and nobody on the on the ice called the penalty. That's one of the ones that I remember just right off the bat, whereas it's just like, Excuse me. How did you miss that? First of all, closing your hand on the puck number one, and then he tosses it into the stands. Really? And then that's the guy who wants up, scoring the series winning goal. Yeah, well Mhm. Don't know if it's going to change. I don't know if we're ever going to get to a spot where we're watching penalties get reviewed and games stopped the way that so many other sports have gone. This women they stop, and they'll review goals and interference in the interview. Or they'll review I should say offside challenges, but I don't know. Do you think the NHL ever goes to a spot where Perry's bleeding on the ice? The officials go back to watch to see what happened. You could maybe make a role when there's blood on the ice like that. They could go back and see what happened. And that's particular case. But I mean, you can't sit there and review All penalties will be there all night, right? I mean, what they have to do is get these dinosaurs out of the league office. Because that's the way hockey was played in the seventies. So you know that's the way hockey should be played. And you know, I get. I mean, these guys have been there forever. And I've been talking about this forever and you need some new blood in there and Some blood that understands what what the flow of the game isn't and how penalties if you know, can matter into a game and and they just got to get rid of some of these old ideas that have been there since the seventies. Paul Hamilton joining us on the West or hotline. Alright, Paul, we're waiting on Sabres news regarding trades and coaches, But we did get news last night, and it had been something that had come out a couple days ago. Rene Rivera suffering a heart attack, and, uh, last night, it was announced that he had passed away at the age of 72. So, um, you have a piece up on our website kind of just run through the Highlights of his career. Rene Robert, you know for Sabres fans that are a little too young for Sal and I, That's you know, both of us in terms of having watched him play known about him a little bit. How about Rene Robert? He was the guy parole and Martin of the flashier players. They were better hockey players. Not that Rene Robert wasn't a good hockey player. I mean, he had 100 points in 1974 75 led the team in scoring. But, uh, Pearl and Mark where the flash year but you need a big goal. Rene Robert was the guy that scored that and he had the first overtime goal in Saber history in 73 when they were playing the Montreal Canadians back when the Canadians were a dynasty, Ken Dryden is in goal and Uh, you know, as Buffalo's first time in the playoffs, there's three years in existence and they make the playoffs and they're given the Montreal Canadians everything they can handle. And Rene Robert gets the overtime winner in Montreal. First overtime goal in team history, and that was the year fans may have heard this, some of them who haven't been alive. You know the fans in Buffalo and the Canadians clinched the series or You know, chanting, Thank you sabers. And, uh, you know, throughout the odd you know, during that, and then in 75, he scored an overtime goal against Montreal again. That year, they beat the Canadians to get themselves into the Stanley Cup finals against the Philadelphia Flyers in the fog game. If you're a saber fan here, I'm sure you've seen the replay of repairs overtime goal in the fog game. To beat the Philadelphia Flyers in Game three. And get the Sabres back into the series. So you know he had three overtime goals in his career. He just had that knack for scoring that big goal. He lived for that. I mean, he lived for being in those situations to score the big goal and he played the right point on the power play, and he had such a hard heavy shot. He had talked about. I saw an interview that Dan Dunleavy, uh, tweeted out yesterday. You know where he talked about being at the point where he wasn't trying to score goals. From there. He was trying to hit his players in front of the net. You know he and that was back when players actually went to the net and paid the price to score goals. And you know that's what his plan was. And of course, he did score some goals from the right point also on the power play, but That was his plan. Just, you know, get the deflection. Get the puck to the net. Get it through and maybe you're going to get a rebound for some for somebody and score power play goal. We? We talked earlier about how the we had a lot of discussion when Taron Johnson at the pick six in the playoffs against the Ravens, Maybe maybe the greatest, you know, play in Buffalo sports history. That goal has to be up there on the list of most iconic moments in Buffalo sports history, right? I mean in the fog in the finals against that team that that that has to be up there as one of the most iconic place in Buffalo sports history..

"Tweeted in Rene Rivera is one of my favorite players was so upset when the Sabres traded him for John Van Boxmeer. That was actually that was actually the call of the first ever savers overtime goal back in 73. Oh, I'm sorry. That's ball game. I'll play the five game gold later on. Sure, um, Steve continues said to say just Hilbert left from the French connection. Not lost on me like he was traded for John Van Boxmeer. Bad trade. Good trade. I mean, again, like little little past our Our view and our our history of the Sabres for me and sound for Britain as well. Um Everybody eventually gets traded, right? Everybody eventually retires eventually gets traded. Whatever might be, um, couple tax will connect with our fans brought to buy bonds. Henican King, a full service Buffalo law firm.

So yes, we will allow this substance whatever it might be, so that could be something that happens. I don't really care that these pictures are using sticky stuff. You know, I don't necessarily mean cheating is better, but Mean he's going offside by a fraction of an inch cheating. Or is it just like, Let's just play this stupid game. Let's get things moving, and for baseball, you know, continually stopped the game like this. I just think it's a really bad, really, really bad look for them. Yeah. Look, I just watched that breakdown that you know how is it? It's pretty good. It's amazing. It's pretty good. It's an empire. Putting his hands in his hair is the best part. Oh, my God. And like, Yeah, the lip reading is great. You're right. And he does. He specifically calls out Kevin. Long K. Long K long. Come on, you want to go and you don't know that until you watch the video because it looks like he's calling out Max shares or But the best part I just tweeted out. The best part might be at the to 35 Mark. There's a clip of a woman behind the dugout and she has this bewildered look at her face. She's smiling, kind of laughing and she goes, what's happening out there. I saw that says, Yeah, we're all wondering, that's right. What's happening out there? It's great. It is 80305 50. If you'd like to join us give us a call, All right. So yesterday, one of our listeners asked, which bills player we're most excited to see in person in the story came out that 100% capacity. They've removed the requirement for a vaccine to attend a game, so it's like life back to normal for Bills, fans going to games and a text or asked, you know, other than Josh and the obvious answers. Who are you most excited to watch in person this year and I I kind of cheated on the question, Saleh said. I know you said no obvious answers. But the obvious answer is digs like I can't That's the guy that he's had one of the best seasons and bills history. And, you know, watching receivers in person versus watching receivers on television is very, very, very, very different. You know, you get to You get to watch them work When you're at the stadium. You don't get to watch them work on television you can see Replace, you can go back and watch all 22. But it's not the same. So my answer was dicks, which I'm sure You had a chance to watch him this year. You had a chance to watch, you know, Digs be easily brown work against the secondary. Um, and the same is true of the secondary like Micah Hyde and Jordan Player and Trey White like it's a different experience. Watching those guys live than it is on television because on television, of course, you rarely see them when the play is unfolding. That is my obvious. Yeah. Uh yeah. It is an obvious answer. You're right. Um, so it's just like what bills player you most excited to season. Who are you? Most excited, basically be in person. In person, like just the bills or anybody like in Bill, because novel, Okay. Text was asking now that you can be at the games. You know what about your viewing will be different when you watch them? Right. So so let's just, you know, look at the Bills roster and Narrow it to the bills. You know what bills player Are you excited to watch in person? Because you wouldn't I think that's obviously number one, because even you know, Jeremy, I say it all the time. I've never actually even physically met stuff on digs. And I'm the teams beat reporter for our station because we've only had anybody was on the team New last year. I've never met only through zoom. I mean, I've talked to Stefan Diggs on Zoom. I've never actually you know, shook his hand or said hello to him in person. There may have been an incident where other reporters have been able to do that here or there, but that's basically the job last year. You can't do that. So for me, that's Certainly one of them. Maybe if not the most. Um, you know, maybe yeah. In person. I guess I'd have to say Stefan Diggs, but If you're going by kind of which player you're kind of more most intrigued about this year like you were like yesterday with your question about the league and I said the United Textile Ben Roethlisberger. You said, you know Matthew Stafford, just a guy that like, Wow, There's a lot of curiosity about him this year. Think it's Tremaine Edmunds for me this year. I think Tremaine Edmunds is in a really interesting spot, and he's got to make a leap, and he's got this fifth year they picked up They got it for two more years, a a big number in his fifth year that they're committed to now. I think Tremaine Edmunds to me is the guy If I had to choose the Bills roster to answer your specific question from yesterday, like which bills player are you most interested in seeing this year? I think it's him for me because I think he's got his play will speak a lot about what they do at that position or what they have to deal with that the position. Yep, I like to answer a lot like my change of answer. Was going to be. It was going to cheat a little bit more. It was going to the middle of the bills defense. It was going to be. Yeah Star Oliver Edmonds star, especially because you know he's been here before, and I don't think I've ever really spent much time watching him play..

Double a not scandal. The way saga as it looks like it's going to be. I'm not going dismantled is not the right word cell, but it can't exist in the same way so The nine o'clock hour. We'll talk about that. With Dan Wetzel and Darren Hytner. So two guests back to back about all of that. How that's going to go. Um, very, very big news in the N C. Double A with the Supreme Court decision is the kind of just falls apart. And last night in the sports world, I mean, I'm up in the middle of the night Sell. My wife is up a little bit more than me. Obviously, you know, the babies will wake up in the night, so I'm up and I'll get a Twitter check at two A.m. and another one at four. A.m.. Just to kind of be ready for what's going on today on the show, and I want to say last night in the sports world and locally, also with the with the mayoral primaries last night was a busy night. There was a lot going on with the basketball game with the hockey Games and then with baseball. Oh, baseball has lost its mind, right? Baseball has lost its collective mind with this new controversy that was not quite invented in a day. But the sticky stuff thing has come on us quick. They made a rule, and it's already out of control. With what's happened, the flock the Phillies and the Nationals last night. Max Scherzer, Joe Girardi. It is already out of control and, like the commissioner has to figure out what to do, because if you missed it Joe Girardi basically challenge Max Scherzer three times. To be checked, and I was unclear. I didn't know is the rule that you can basically tell the umpire to check the the opposing pitcher whenever you want. I thought it was just I was under the assumption. It was just kind of random whenever the umpires wanted well, which, by the way, they're doing it almost every inning. I watched the entire Yankees game last night. I will tell you that. Like early on the Royals pitcher comes out and they're like, Yep, they're going to check them. I'm like, okay, Here we go, then. Gerrit Cole? Yep. They're going to check them then later as a reliever up here they go. They're gonna check them and I'm like, Oh, my God. Like they're just checking these guys left. And right, then I saw the shares are Girardi thinking? I'm thinking Wait a minute, like, Can you just tell the umpire Hey, go check the opposing pitcher Whenever you want at the end of every inning, it sure seems that way. Well, it was. It's supposed to be random. It's not supposed to be a every sort of inning sort of thing. But and I think it was the third inning. Joe Girardi, you know, ask the umpires like, Hey, he keeps wiping himself and he keeps you know. I've never seen him do this so much. Go check them, and they checked him for a third time and It is getting completely out of control. It's something that's not supposed to be a every sort of anything but already just two days into this whole thing, it seems like that the checks and the amount of checks in the amount of pictures that are getting frustrated is ridiculous. Yeah. And then Sergio Sergio Romo of the A's and Max Scherzer, both of the nationals. They both basically pull their pants down during during a check to mark this whole thing like you want to keep checking me. You want to check me look here, and they like Sergio Romo, like took off his belt and completely and he was in the umpire at one point, basically, like no, no, You can stop doing that. Right now. It was. I think the pictures of kind of If you will. They've kind of created their own union here. You know where they got together, and they said, we're going to make sure that they know that we are unhappy about this and we're going to make it embarrassing for Major League baseball. And I think well, so far, Mission accomplished because I think it's very embarrassing for Major League baseball. And Joe Girardi got thrown out of that game last night. He was he was he trying to did he want to fight, Scherzer? No, No, no. Yeah. Are you sure Know I'm very sure. I'm very sure of this because it was a nice if you follow the account, John Boy John by media. I don't. Yeah, I know John boy. He does a lot of he does a lot of different like baseball breakdowns and everything, And he did a really nice job explaining why Girardi got ejected in a bunch of other things that happened in yesterday's game. One of the bench coaches for the Nationals used to be on his staff with the Yankees, and he was calling his former bench coach out because the bench coach was yelling at Girardi telling them, you know. Hey, it's you know, Bs, and, uh, you can't be doing that kind of stuff..
