Those those different looks that they give you I really like the Lakers. With that Crenshaw theme color The baby Blue. Um Look that they had. I thought the Grizzlies Look was kind of sleek, not to, um Flamboyant, but definitely I kind of dug the aesthetic of what the Grizzlies we're going for The Nets. One has sparked a lot of conversation, the whole boscap theme. Um I like most of what they've done with their merchandizing. So I was I was into that. I like the Basquiat like almost like prey on Style lettering that they did I like the Atlanta Hawks. Um, uniforms as well. I thought the Atlanta Hawks ones were cool despite disperse the fiesta colors that they used to use for the old logo on the warm ups..

"Look at the conversation we're having now is a great great What if conversation. We're trying to answer a hypothetical with a hypothetical and it's what makes sports great. It's the Is LeBron James about a basketball player than Michael Jordan. That's what sports is all about. It is how we bring people together and build relationships around around sports. So I don't have a problem with the Astros. It just says something happened. And then it starts the argument over to I a with your sentiment, Richard, and it's fun to discuss in that way, But there are no asterisks, right? I mean, the Astros don't have an Asterix is not there. I mean, you could go check it out next to that World Series. Right like it's not in the record books there, you know, and same thing goes for lockout shortened seasons. Friends. It's like when the Spurs beat beat the Knicks. Right that year. The next I think we're the eighth seed in the playoffs that year. It was a shot. 50 will consider this before 2008. We didn't have Facebook. Now we dio before before the year 2020. We had what one we had meant. Mantle Maris. Now we D'oh now what happened? So we start something that we keep talking about the new normal, But let's make that the new normal. Let's have The asterisk there with thought. What with those with those questions. Is that not so great wondering, but could put the Yankees of 2020 be the better team than the Yankees of 2019. What a great conversation if you because all that does is the Astros put things in contact. I need Asterix. You don't need an Asterix Republic. I remember that, like, let's say the Yankees win the World Series this year. Do you think Yankees fans or fans in general are going to forget that it was in the 60 game shortened season or let's say LeBron and the Lakers win the championship this year in the N B A R people going to forget LeBron's championship from the bubble? No, they're they're always remember that and the context around it. Well, how about how about jury? How about during World War two. You think a lot of people look at the stats say? Oh, yeah, that was wasn't that World War two. I've got a lot of people don't because they don't even know when we're award to was fought and So you know, but things things changed a lot. I mean, a lot of the players you know, went off to war. And if they played with a different roster, but nobody says Oh, you know, that was because they don't remember. You're also dealing. I mean, with all due respect, you're you're talking about a, you know, a time period that happens. Where you have to be of a certain age to even have any sort of perspective about it. Other than knowing the actual facts in history. You know you're talking to the 19 4 degrees. I agree. And then one day you and I are going to be 40 years older, You know, God willing for may certainly feel but will be and will will will that generation the next generation? Know that this was with the co Goodyear so but again, like Look at you and I were having it. We're having a conversation. It's fun, and you know, we'll probably both leave saying, Hey, I think I won that argument. But that's the way the porches that's the fun part about sports. Is putting things in context and, you know, and having your favorites and having an every time you made the same argument Mantle over. Ah, ah, Mental over Maris or LeBron over, Michael. So, hey, thank you for listening, and I really appreciate it and you know, and I appreciate your listening, tio my side of it. You got it Rich. Do you have a good day? Men lie. I appreciate all the interaction 877337 66 66. I got a few more minutes if you want to get in 877337 66 66 at Robin Lundberg on Twitter. Like I said, I think the the genesis of sports talk that the big bang of sports talk if you will, you know, it was some sort of argument like that, right? This team was better than that team. Or this guy with this player was better than that player that that is the bedrock of sports talk when people talk about you know, I've been in so many program meetings where the the guys in charge, the suits would say, You know, we wanted to sound like you're at the bar or your imagine being in a bar nowadays, What's the What's the new version of a bar? We wantto wanted to sound like your zoom calls. But you know what is that? That's that's the guy next to you saying, you know. Jordan's great but he's no LeBron. You know LeBron's past him and then somebody go. What did you say? You know, or vice versa. You know how like LeBron, but he's never going to be Michael Jordan. That's impossible. And that argument popping off or or, you know, somebody mentioning, you know, the greatest team they ever saw was the Would've been the Patriots if it wasn't for what the Giants did and whatnot. You know any example you want to use, of course, and obviously the Yankees fall into a lot of those examples with the history. Of that franchise and that team in what they've been able to accomplish, but I just don't like the idea of diminishing these championships right now. Because you're talking about you know the first good news we've gotten in a while. We've been starving for sports content. At least I would imagine. If.

"That's saying I like that. Only 26. I think it out so well. I mean, look, we're talking about that. You're talking about the Jets, right? The Jets. We'll see if Sam Darnold is the guys that Yeah, I guess you're still out on that, too. Yeah, but they've been looking for a quarterback since man landed on the moon. Right. The Browns how long they've been looking for a quarterback, So it's not that I don't find it back. Prescott. Well, I like to hear your thoughts on that, man. I appreciate it. No, thank you for the call. How about How about salmon? Nutley? Sam, You're up next here with Robin Lundberg on the fan. What's going on, Sam? Hey, thanks for taking my call. So you are saying whether or not seasons like the 60 game season should be considered water down. If you know the Yankees or the Mets. Whoever wins, I think it's the exact opposite case. And and there's two reasons so One. There's a report. I don't know if you saw Kevin Smith, the Tampa Bay Rays he's from Pennsylvania. So while he was waiting for the season to start He noticed everyone. Pennsylvania Where's mass? Everything's safe. He goes down to Tampa. No one's wearing masks, and he's saying like players are going out wearing masks and they're getting made fun off, and people are calling them pansy. He's he's getting weird looks getting eyeballed because he's trying to protect himself. So what That tells me is that there are parts of this country where players they're gonna have to travel to that They're not going to be protected, not let alone travelling on airplanes all the time. Going through airports going on buses going to hotels. So you might be protected in some places, but in other places, mask only work if everyone wears it. So then this goes in that 60 game season. These these guys are risking their lives basically to play baseball. Because they're doing all this traveling. They're going to places that are not safe. So like, if you're if you're a Mets fan, the Mets play the Marland all the time, you know, and that's in Florida, and they're surging. So I think that 60 game season. If they make it through the sixth game season should not be considered water down. It would be a miracle they make it through this season. I agree with you, Sam. I have said that the titles this year deserve exclamation points and not asterix. You know, because they're looking. It's a moment in time, right? We're talking about something that will not be able to be replicated. We're talking about having to deal with, you know factors that other people haven't had to deal with factors that the participants now have never had to deal with in the past. In baseball. You're talking about a 60 game season that that's different than the norm. So the sense of urgency that creates you're talking about, you know, guys being put on the the you know, inactive list because of Cove it you're talking about. You know the playoffs approaching faster than ever, the opening day being pushed back. There's so many different things in basketball you're talking about being in this bubble. You're talking about four months off and going back into action. There's just a myriad of factors that make it difficult and I give credit to whoever wins. It's not like what I hate about it is sometimes I think we've talked like that It becomes a It's an Asterix for some people, and not for other people just based on whether you like it or not, or you're rooting against them or not, or for them. Not for me. This goes for every team. Any team that wins. A salute to them in both of those sports Yeah, I don't. I mean, I'm interested in seeing how things go after, you know, two weeks, three weeks whether or not cases pop up and what do they do are they gotta shut things down or they're gonna Just kind of quarantine parts of the team. What if the whole team is kind of wiped out by an infection? Does that team just not participate anymore? In the rest of the team keep continue to play. I have no idea how this is going to turn out. I don't think any of us do and thank you for the car. I don't think any of us. Do you know it. Generally they're going to be living with this as a part of a new reality. But is there a tipping point? That would stop play. Maybe being Adam Silver's already acknowledged an outbreak inside the bubble. Whatever that the outbreak term means could stop play. I don't know what the number of cases that is a few positive test 10 20 even That's not going to do it. But where is that line? And for baseball. I'd be worried about baseball like you mentioned is the travel on because you know that's a lot of intermingling and moving from place to place, and therefore they're going to be positive tested baseball. Where's the line there? None of us know because none of us have ever gone through or experienced something like this. Before. 877337 66 66 877337 66 66 Let's go to Rich in Freehold rich Europe. Next here with Robin Lundberg on the fan, What's going on Rich? Hi. How are you? I'm gonna talk about the the Astros real quick. I don't know what's going to happen. None of us do. I mean, where everybody's trying to make predictions about What's going to happen? Could we have predicted a year ago that this was gonna happen? So no, I don't. I don't know where it's going. But let's suppose that the season doesn't go to 60 games and there's and there's a champion. I don't think there's a problem with an asterisk because All in. All it says, is something happened. You know, I remember starting to learn about baseball with my brother and father arguing about who's the best outfielder. Was it Mickey Mantle There? Was it Willie Mays on then they talked about The Astros for the Mantle and Maris and the those actress make for great conversation..

"Robin Lundberg here with you on the fan. Been a fun Sunday afternoon slash evening thus far. Let's keep it going. You could tweet at me at Robin Lundberg on Twitter. That is r O b I n l u N d e b E R G. Of course you can also call into the show and we can have a conversation that way because this is one of the Few mediums that allows some good human interaction at this point in life, 877337 66 66 877337 66 66. Let's go next to, uh Howbout. Lewin Historia Lou, You're up next on the fan with Robin Lundberg. What's up? Ariel, What are you doing? I'm doing well, don't you go have a conversation that I have been basketball, right? Best way that I saw, but anyway, like guy like Chamberlain, you know, I don't think your plan and our era right now. He was great. It was unbelievable when he played But I wouldn't make your play they nobody ever make sure it's all about Jordan and LeBron James. There's a guy that come out for high school and you're young. You have a little get up. All high school to college to the pros. That is the greatest basketball player that ever played. Who do you think I'm talking about? From high school to tell Unnavigable was that Yeah. A lot of people, right? Kareem Abdul Jabbar to talk about. Yeah, Yes, I think so. Yeah. Any day something if I was going to start a team, Listen, Jordan is one of the greatest All of it will be my play. It could play in any era. Okay? I mean, okay, so he I mean, he could he could. He could play any air because that guy Hogan's chapel he had a great defense. A fucking skull point whenever he wanted. The good is going to play that ever leaving his baseball is concerned. I I don't understand why you don't think you're making the best light to player that I ever saw his electoral drinking. You know, Look, Alex Rodriguez is in a little bit of an enigma, and I appreciate the call a CZ Faras. He was obviously a great player. But he wasn't beloved for a long time, especially here in New York because of some lack of production in the biggest spots, But then he had the 2009 run. Which changed That narrative clearly was. Ah, great Shortstop. Integrate second baseman later on a CZ. You know when you you look at his career arc and and the way I mean, I'm sorry, third baseman later on, and you look at his career arc and the way you know it developed. He's Ah An all time great player. I wouldn't put him at the top of the list. And then you also have the steroid aspect with Rodriguez as well, Just like so many people from his era, you know Barry Bonds. Is the guy I said before And to me. Barry Bonds is the best player I ever saw. The way I put it is he was the best before cheating, and he was the best at cheating, so he was a great all around player. Free being enhanced. You know, he's stolen bases. Obviously get hit for power Could was a you know an all around, skilled, gifted player on DH, then became the best hitter or essentially the best hitter of all time on the juice. The Rod. You know, it's hard to isolate his production, too, because of of you know that being a part of his career narrative, But obviously Alex Rodriguez is an all time great player. And you know if the Depending on how the Hall of Fame winds up shaking out and I believe those guys should get in. If they have the overall body of work, he would get in, but we don't know how that will will take hold in the future. What you're saying about Kareem Abdul Jabbar. Look, Karim, There's a lot of people who argue he slept on on and he did dominate at every level, and he's the all time leading score in N BA history. That's one of those things LeBron is chasing. LeBron has a real good chance. To actually pass. Kareem is the NBA's all time leading score, unfairly or not. Sometimes big men get the short end of the stick when it comes to these conversations, because we get more enamored with the guys who make stuff happen with the ball in their hands from the perimeter, And then there's the way the game is played. Now versus how it was, and and I think it's harder for a big man. To be P dominant, but Kareem Abdul Jabbar, 19 time All Star, two time scoring Champ, six time N Ba Champ two time finals MVP six time M V P Hey, belongs on any short list of the greatest players of all time. That's for sure. 877337 66 66. Let's go next to how about Jessie and Huntington? Jesse? You're on with Robin Lundberg here on the family. Cary, Robyn. Nice to speak to you. Thanks for taking my call. I wanted to our touch on a few of the callers. I've been hearing, especially Ah, guy recently saying you care less about the politics of the players and you know, he just wants to, you know, live sports to get away. Uh, you know, it's pretty clear that he cares a lot about their politics to the point of not wanting to watch sports of the results. I think he just disagrees with their politics. I think that's the issue. He doesn't like the matches that they're saying he wants him to just put them in the corner and shut up and play basketball. I think that's the major issue and frankly Quite honest, I'm sick of people like him complaining about their politics..

"So I had to figure out about that, though. Yeah, early in the morning to wake me up. Hey, Robin. Real quick. I just want to get make one ask you a quick question right now. Gun to your head. Will my trout ever be as good as Ken Griffey Jr. I'm gonna go with a finger gun to my head. But look for me forever right? He will never have the impact that Ken Griffey Jr did for me. I mean, like, I you know, used to wear my hat back where Ken Griffey Jr might be The reason I still wear my hat backwards today, right? Like it might have started over from that point. But if you ask, you know, baseball fans and and real baseball historians They say that that Mike Trout is arguably on pace to be the best player of all time. So I mean, I have to defer a little bit away from my nostalgia towards Mike trout. It's just so hard in baseball because It's you know, like Mike has never won a playoff game, right? And that's just the nature of that sport. So it makes it a little more difficult. Best baseball player in the best baseball player I ever saw was very bonds because Barry Bonds was in the arguments with Ken Griffey and arguably better than Ken Griffey even before he cheated, and so he was the best before cheating, and he was the best at cheating. A pre pre very pretty cheating. Barry Bonds was in the 40 40 club post cheating Barry was Babe Ruth. Right, Right. You know why? Robin's Yeah. Yeah. I appreciate the call there and thank you, man. Let's go to about Pete in Woodberry, Pete Europe next year with Robin Lundberg on the fan. What's going on? I don't know. Good. How are you? So third year on tomorrow? I didn't know that you on tomorrow On a Monday, not here. No. Okay, I am. I am. I am gone somewhere. But I am not on here. Places tomorrow, but not here. Yeah, okay. I told you on the stand tomorrow I thought it was understood. But nevertheless looking forward to hearing from you where your bed is today, and I'm calling because I have I have a quick question about Ah, quick to play comparison. They don't want to ask you about the ankle. That's with the whole 60 season thing. Mladic, Uh, Vladimir Guerrero, the elder or the, uh Glad he started 97. Each row 2000. They played about the same amount of years. Uh, one bloody more power for 150 home runs. Each row. Tangled, love, flabby None. Both won everything who you go if you had a big one for your career. Yeah, I guess I will. Slightly, um, lean each arrow. I mean, each of the non power guys might be the best fighter I've ever seen. On and he also you know, could was versatile in the value he gave you. Of course we know he didn't start his career here. So maybe things you know, it would look even better. If if he did. He played a long time in the majors, right? Almost 20 years, right, But nevertheless, yeah, I would lean each row. I gotta tell you, it's like, 80 20 against me. When I asked that question to my body's, so I'm glad to hear that answer at school. Thea other thing is I could easily see this season going down. You see? So I want to yank Metz and sixth game season I could easily see them. That's going a game to better over the Yanks. In the sixth game season going 37 23. 36. 2400 things. Um you know, a couple injuries. My question to you is this and as I as I also noticed the last caller Brought up a good point. People are playing. The people that are playing. I noticed most recently. Buster Posey, Ryan Zimmerman. Ah guys, that really are. Not going to be impact players or guys on teams that have not really much of a shot. I'm not saying guys. Real competitive teams. Allah, my trout. Get O R. Garrett Cole with the baby coming. Of opting out yet, so I'm curious to see that but my question would be with the bullpen withdrawal. This Chapman now getting the cove it I know they're getting 37% So I did a rough thing. 37% of his 18 million will call six million, right. Let's say he gets for 14 days. Take a 15 day deal. He gets 1/4 of the deal. He has to be out of baseball. Does that mean he gets a $1.5 million he doesn't get like like a regular disability? Or is that guaranteed money? Oh, I don't know exactly how the I would imagine when he's on the injured list. It would work just like any injury and heading injury, right? Yeah. No, I don't think that I mean, I don't think the players would have stood for that right. It will be. It'll be treated like any injury. Whole other being not being disclosed it unless they have the permission, But I appreciate the call man. In Chapman's case, a CZ much as I was saying before, you know depth is going to be important in this baseball season because of a new variable one. You know the season shorter, but two guys are going to be out because of covert. It's just a matter of fact, right? Captain's should be back near the beginning of the season. I would imagine. Hopefully that that is the case. Given the timing here, you know it wasn't you know, as long as he's OK, and we seem to Ah, the indications are that he is Then I don't see him missing a whole bunch of time. Maybe the very beginning of the season. I don't know with the you know protocols require Once you Ah.

"Number here with you on the fan. I hope everybody's doing all right out there sending good vibes. Everybody's way, you know. Look, I know it's been a tough time for so many for everybody. Everybody really. I mean, it's been an extremely tough time for some of the you out there, of course, and less or so for others. But for everybody, it's been a tough time. So I am fully aware of that. And I hope everybody is doing all right. 877337 66 66 you know, trying tow have some fun conversations here. On the fan with you on this Sunday afternoon. We could always go into the serious stuff is well, I never shy away from that. But you know, it's one of the few shared experiences we can have. Is on this this medium right here and right now, so I'll go next to Zeke in Flatbush. Zeke. You're on with Robin Lundberg. Here on the fan. What's going on? You're not a nice one. You know, I actually thought of another big man once three championships in three different, well, multiple championships with three different teams and a guy that I personally think you'd be the whole team. That's what Well, yeah, but when I said I said superstar, Andi, Robert, or you're correct won championships with He's a seven time n ba champ. If memory serves me correct with the Lakers, the Rockets and the Spurs. I think you got one with the Spurs three with the Lakers with 22 with Rocky must have got to it. If he has got seven he's got I mean, it's hard to keep track. He's got a bunch with five with the Lakers. I'm sorry and ah, couple with Spurs and then two with rockets. Probably that's probably how it happened now, that would be more than seven. I don't know. Let me let me let me think about it again and get it exactly as got to with the Rockets, right? He's got three with the Lakers. And two with the Spurs. You're right. That's what it is, but but I don't consider him a superstar right? He was a he was a a super role player and got it done on. And, of course, as a shooter. He was a good three point shooter shut the 34% which was okay for that time, But that's that's About average or below average, thinking that's pretty impressive. You know, Tao and look he look if they're my life was on the line, and one guy needed to hit an open three. He's amongst the first people. I thank you. You got it, man. I mean, I remember that it was the King's game right? The Sacramento Kings game with the ball that looked like the Kings had that game. One ball skips back to the top of key robberies, waiting their cans. The three as the buzzer sounds, so that's part of Robert or his legacy right there. And speaking of even the Spurs. It's a forgotten finals because it was a time I wasn't the best time in N BA history, and it wasn't the most exciting finals. But the year after the Pistons beat the Lakers, and in 2004 after they smoked Shaq and Kobe and the Lakers Ah gentleman sweep in that Siri's The next year, The Pistons were back in the finals and they played the Spurs in that series went seven, but it wouldn't have if it wasn't for Game five. Game five Robert or he saved the Spurs in that serious. I just talked to Robert Horry around the All Star Game too down in Chicago. It's wild that I was at the All Star Game in February, right, like an arena full of people. And mingling with people in in February, and here we are now, how about Eric in Rockland? Erik? You're up next. Here on the fan with Robin Lundberg, What's going on here? Hey, Robin. Thanks for taking my call. Ah, a couple of things one. I think the N B A. You missed out on the most important team because they have to the most underrated. People of the NBA's most on the rate of coach and the most underrated player with Yeah, Vacuum and the coach there, So in short tournament like this, I actually think the Raptors are The best sleeper team pick Because they've been there, They know what to expect. And and they have AH, budding superstar. That's because I guess he's playing in Toronto. It just doesn't get any any publicity. So I think you got to give them a little bit more attention than Ah, not even mentioning them in your monologue. So I think that's one thing and then for baseball You know? Can you imagine the Yankees going starting off to intend the panic? In this sort of scene, and I mean that's going to be something to watch because they're goingto. There's so much expect so much expectation. There's just there's not enough time to make it up. You know, so too intense starts and then you get the Devil Rays or the race that You know they get their heart starts. There's like they usually do. And then all of a sudden they have a seven game lead would like 30 games left in the season comes panic all the son of the city, so it's gonna be really exciting for the major league. What do you say? You know, Look, let me address your Raptor point first, and then I'll go to the baseball. One of the Raptors are a very good team, and they have already had a valiant title defense. I just think when it comes to the playoffs They're going to Ms Kawai Leonard's ability to get his own shot. I don't know if see, aka the outcome is a heck of a player. You're correct, and he's a he's a budding superstar. I just don't know if he's there as a shot creator on his own. And Fred Vanvleet had a big finals last year. They've got other guys who are proven, but I don't know if they have that guy. When things get really tighten. The other team is focused on you in a Siri's who could get his own shot as Faras baseball. Okay, good. Yeah, I was just gonna say I think, but I think that I keep forgetting his David the coach. Yeah. I think he's worth Ah Longmore in this in this season. Because of the the tournaments and you never know there's a player is going to be out. I think he just a just a lot better than other coaches. If you know if one of the superstars is out of the tournament because he has positive for whatever reason. I had more like against double a tournament this year. For what for some reason than a regular, you know, n ba, you know, you know, playoff do you? Then I just feel it has more of that. Ah, that feel Where it's going to be a lot more the coaching and the and then there, you know who knows what the the fact that there's a home court advantage how that's gonna affect different players. For sure. Quiet is the you know, Second best best player, depending on or you know who you talked to. But they've matured a lot without him. I was, you know, I watched a couple of games and I was really impressive, Ben, Sweet also going into his own, and I just I just see them as being Really, really dark at our course in this tournament..

"Long Island. Mike, you're up next. Here on the fan with Robin Lundberg, What's going on now? Go on. Good man. How are you? Not that. I mean, I just want to combat the puller a few calls ago that was saying how they didn't. They don't play even if like they did in the nineties. I mean, back to the nineties, You had your four and five Basically never left the basket, like never 12 50 feet in the basket. The way the spacing goes today, with most your force, the English threes and even a few year five It's a totally different game, and I mean, he says that in the nineties and never get that shot off the nineties, they would have never really been able to figure out how to cover guys. Yeah, they would have thought, you know, they would've seen Kevin Durant, seven foot guy pull up from 35 feet. They would have thought he was a witch or something that it's Steph Curry the way he holds up off the dribble from all over the place. They would have been 30. You know, with you. It's so much harder to play defense now and again. I know I tried to bring up the example before, but you know I like to use the Knicks is an example obviously be in a New York sports talk show. Ewing has his back to the basket, right. He's not even facing the bad every time he's facing the wrong way. That was the way that people played offense and and the you know, you're just kind of stick into your man. And and maybe you were double team, But nowadays you're having to navigate a screen every single time. You're having to switch every single time you having to close out to the three point line every single time, you know, it's just so much more difficult to play defense. Nowadays, it's a new game. Yes, it certainly is. And I appreciate the call and the grip on reality. Nostalgia is a hell of a drug. That's one thing you'll learn nostalgia is a hell of a drug. 877337 66 66 877337 66 66 If you want to join the conversation, I am Robin Lundberg. And I'm here with you this afternoon on the fan.

"So in the actual game play, there shouldn't be too much. And if if they keep everything else outdoors for the most part or confined to their own teams, the rosters aren't massive. So you're not dealing like football is the one where the roster size is a huge issue. Yes, you're dealing with a lot of people. So if you're watching film inside or something, it's a lot of people and then you're traveling. I mean football is going to be, I think the hardest sport to contain the virus with Baseball. I No, You're going to see guys on the deal for it. We already are the whatever technical term in there on the Isle de whatever, but they're going to be on out of the lineup. So you're going to deal with it? The question is, you know it. Is it under a certain number where they feel it is manageable. You know, I don't know what that line is determined to be for the N B A because it's an indoor sport. The goal there is To keep it out of the bubble. But if it does get inside the bubble, too Understand where it came from. All right. This person tested who they were in contact with. Ah and Keep it from spreading inside the bowl. Because the nightmare scenario for the MBA is it's spreading inside the bubble as faras the point you made about all that other stuff like everybody's responsible for their own individual decisions. I think there will be with the guys down there in Orlando, a heightened sense of responsibility. Because you just naturally feel it doing what they're doing. So I I'm hopeful that between you know individual responsibility that heightened overall responsibility and teammates keeping each other in check. That that there won't be an issue with too much recklessness and same thing with baseball you got in. You gonna have to trust the teammates. I think I saw Aaron Judge say that he's not worried with the Yankees because all they do is play video games. And there may have been a time in the past. I can promise you there's like some old school sports talk show where Erin Erin judge said. All we do is play video games and somebody's really mad, But the Yankees aren't focused on the season. All I do is play video games. These kids nowadays bad back when Mana was playing They didn't have video games. And that's when the sport was great, You know, But nowadays people probably here that go. Are you good? Yeah, good. Not going out, not, you know, putting the season at risk because I'm sure lobby Yankees fans are hopeful for a world Siri's now that they know that the season is going to start again. Heck, I'm sure a lot of Mets fans are hopeful and talking themselves into this season because of The short nature of it, you know, because they do still have some arms into Graham and Strom and and because, you know, assess, but it's going to be back. I'm sure all that that is happening right now. 877337 66 66 877337 66 66 Let's go to Sal in. Shirley, You're up next. Here on the fan with Robin Lundberg. What's up, so Yeah. How you doing? I'm doing well, How are you? Good you were talking about. I guess you're LeBron guide, and I was just kind of thinking, you know, with everything going on. It's nice. Maybe just compare a little bit and I guess I need to tell you I'm a Jordan guy. I mean, the way I look at it, it's defense was played. Today, when Jordan played interpret, averaging better. 40 points a game and vice versa. Is LeBron had to go against the type of defense physical defense there, Jordan They'd be lucky to get a warning. That's kind of my opinion on 62 years old. I've seen it all, eh? Even something, Russell. You mentioned him. That gentleman basically won the championship every year. So I think you got to compare eras as well. It's just playing. Well, I think you do have the factor in errors. And first, let me say Ah, thinking that Michael Jordan is the greatest player ever is a perfectly reasonable position. I completely disagree with your assessment on the error is, though I think for one, you know you've seen an explosion in the three point shot nowadays, which makes it just so much tougher. The way that the game is played is different like it in the nineties. Take the Knicks, for example, you would watch the Knicks walked the ball up the court and dump it into Patrick Ewing on the block, and everybody would sort of watch that they check their man because you either had to send hard doubles or or play man to man defense. And they got to almost rests in a sense in that regard Now all can't do. I'll tell you the defence that was played in Jordan's time. There wouldn't be free of 33 point field goals. There'd be somebody upon the body every shot. And that's just not the case. Today, three points and who's got the better? I is gonna win, but they didn't want to guard is far away. And after guard is far out at that point again, like I'm saying, nowadays, you have to swallow. It wouldn't have to go out on every play. But you realize LeBron is bigger than Bill and beer. Right? Like LeBron Go down. Ron would LeBron he would knock those weapons over? I mean, he would not be right over a lot more. I guess. This is an unwinnable argument, right cause you're going to you're going to say that I think LeBron would absolutely dominate any era and would make those humiliate those guys. Basically. Oh, Jordan drives are good in it. I think you have been on his $1,000,000,000 key store a lot more. You. But you know how hard it is to put LeBron on his key, sir. That's the other thing..

"You on the fan today and asking you how you're feeling, you know, not in just the most general sense, though. If you want to let me know how you're feeling about any issue, that's fine. You could do so 877337 66 66 But I mean, considering what we've been in the midst of unprecedented circumstances for months now where we saw those sports, and now we are still in the midst of unprecedented circumstances, but we are seeing activity. When it comes to sports. The MBA is at the bubble in Orlando. LeBron James is fully activated now Major League baseball getting ready to play a week before that the Yankees and Mets, you know in the news now inter squad Performances. Aroldis Chapman has a positive covert test for the Yankees. Unfortunately, he'll be out Aaron judge dealing with Ah neck issue, but it seems to be minor. For the Mets. You don't assess Pittis, saying he's ready for opening day and then both teams from what I've heard are pretty excited to play and in what will be you know a season that will be different because it will be vastly shorter. The normal, which will make the regular season games. Mohr important as important as many of you guys probably treat them in a normal season. So how are you feeling excited? Are you anxious? Nervous? A mixture of all those things. 877337 66 66. Let's go to Richard in Manhattan. Richard your own with Robin Lundberg here on the fan. What's up, Robin? Before I get to LeBron James Chapman He spent so much time poking up his body showing you his muscles showing you all this stuff that he didn't you know, it's working out. Look what happened to get sick. Wait. What are you trying to say? There's some sort of connection between him Ironic, OK, look at me. I got you all right side now, LeBron James, If this guy pulls this off wins the championship This will be his greatest feat ever, probably the greatest feat ever in the N B a history. There's a guy What is he? 30 for 35 years old. He had every reason every reason not to do what it takes. Get back in championship form. He's 10 12 years old in a most kids he's playing against, and if he takes this team, he's missing a couple of guys and if he takes the steam and wins the championship This will be bigger than anything. Michael Jordan evidence bigger than me bigger, bigger than anything. Bill Russell etiquette with the obstacles facing that to me to maintain his age. Ages cannot fight back Father time as well. The older you get and you in car and you encounter these kind of difficulty, especially something like this health issues. I mean, he's affected more than the younger kids. So just think of it. This is all set up for LeBron Joe. I mean, if we play and if everyone games go to fruition, and everything goes fully played, it will be an unbelievable accomplishment that LeBron James, it'll be unquestionable greatest thing He's ever done anyone the greatest things I've ever seen in sports. You know you're preaching to the choir a little bit there. Richard And I appreciate the call. As always, man. Look, I think whoever wins the championship in the N B A. It will be a special championship. I kind of scoffed at the idea of the Asterix because We never seen unlike this. These guys going to be locked in, you know, on the court, that is they are stuck in the bubble. They you know, had to stop play for months and months and months, and then they're going to go and get it. And so you know, if quite letter wins, it would be a big deal for him. If Yannis wins, it would be a big deal for him if Harden and the Rockets somehow when it would be a big deal for him, Westbrook D'Antoni, You know there's a There's a lot of teams. It would be a big deal for but you're correct. Historically speaking. For no one. Is it a bigger deal than LeBron James? And that was the case before all this went down. That was the case before all this went down, but you know, since he went to the Lakers He got hurt and people you know a lot of people sort of Wrote them off a little bit, or at least he used the few people that were as motivation to create this wash King narrative, and he came into the season doing something that nobody's done. In year 17. Playing at a level that is just basically defies. Explanation, and then it all gets stopped. And and, of course, the MBA can be dealt with a lot before all this went down this year, with with the tragic loss of the late great Kobe Bryant. Um, but the four month breaking and then go back out there and compete in a sense where everybody's going to be focused in In the many ways the MBA is what lead as the first domino to fall for the rest of things shutting down And so therefore, when they return there, there's a little bit of a connection there and then obviously least when it comes to American sports, LeBron's the biggest star in the world. And you know if he goes out and wins this year You. You factor in all the various Ramifications of that. You know he would have done it in years. 17. He would have done it. At 35 years old. He would have done it with his third team. He'd be the only superstar in history to have won a championship with three different franchises. He would have done it and brought the Lakers back to glory. He would have done it right after the last dance when everybody was, you know. Reliving the legacy of Michael Jordan, and he would have done it in this bubble situation. That no one else has had to face. No one else you know, may ever have to face it. So you look back on it. Yeah. If LeBron wins this, Yeah. I mean, you also have two of the most significant titles in history. The 31 come back, of course. By the cab's over the Golden State Warriors in 2016. And now this year, I'm somebody who already believes that LeBron James is the best player who ever lived. But if he gets this title That's going to open the floodgates on that conversation again, and they're going to be a lot of people saying yes, this is that final benchmark that he cleared that nobody else really has ever had to deal with that. That puts him over the top. 877337 66 66 877337 66 66 Let's go to Steve in Manhattan. Steve, You're up next. Here on the fan with Robin Lundberg, What's going on, Steve? Hold on there. Little authorities down Chambered street love to hear the Robin goat. Roger. First of all, we all want to notice. We're talking best book and your boy and he don't get it. Junk yet Well, his dad could never dunk, so obviously he's not gonna be able to dunk. Are you couldn't dunk? You never had that feeling that Duncan never never had not on a 10 foot who did I ever done? I played a lot of basketball my life and it had some good games, but never never were. They culminated or started or anywhere in between with a dunk. Ride. The village is an awesome feeling when you don't pull on a rebound, you know you've done that in my younger days in my younger days, definitely, but the thing is, But if you practice jumping and you practice dunking, ifyou're a short a guy can do it, But you gotta practice at it. I don't know. I mean, for sometimes they're just physical limitations. I mean, I cannot jump that high, but that's okay. Right? Okay, admitting that And I've seen told guys who couldn't dunk because they couldn't control the basketball. But they were getting too Ah, basketball. All the stuff going on baseball. I'm gonna lump us all together. I think the virus is going to be here. But with these ballplayers you got remember Their group is out there. He's a young dudes. You see the young guys out there when they were just hanging out. They don't respect this. The spacing the man's concisely, a lot of people. Some people do. Some people don't a lot of young guys don't And these guys, the young guys a lot of money. I don't care if they're in a bubble there out of the bubble. The virus is going to be there and young guys, They're going to be young guys, and we're going to see guys going down. That's the bottom line. I'm not going to fool anybody with this. Well, Steve and appreciate the comment. Of course, people are going toe get it right like that's what I mean. It's not even Ah, question. It's a fact it's it's happening. Yesterday, we learned about Chapman for the Yankees. So for talking baseball, I do worry a little bit about baseball in the sense of the traveling that they're going to be doing and keeping it contained. Luckily for baseball, it is much more of a It's a non contact sport, right? It's a non contact sport..

"If they were to go through a period where there's a bunch of injuries, and they struggled during it, there's not as much room for error. But I have heard you know that these guys are excited. I'm afeard. I've been told that Eren judge has been a big key for that with the Yankees and and that they seem to be really locked in on the start of the season. And that the same thing goes for the bats just publicly right? What Pete Alonso has been saying. So given everything I just said, and trying to, like, go from where we were to where we are now, and I do believe we're all going. Oh, wow. You know, this is really happening right again.

"All going to play out. None of us know that right? None of us know that aspect of it Clearly, you know there are going to be positive tests. For Corona virus. I don't know what the tipping point is, I don't know. You know exactly everybody's individual thoughts. I'm glad that players were given the chance to opt out in these major sports leagues if they wanted. But so far it's it's you know, play on And you know it's going to be something that teams will have to deal with, though. I mean the Yankees around this, Chapman Has tested positive for covert as of yesterday that news broke, so that's going to have Hey, you know an impact on the team. And that's not the 1st 1 that the Yankees have been dealing with. I mean, d J. Lohman who? Ah, you know, you see it on the D L. Steiner. I Elston Listed as covert 19. That's the reality. We're dealing with it, and I don't think any of us know right? Like I was saying before we were in this Ah, New world if you will. It's funny. I watched the live action Aladdin with my kids yesterday. And it was a little weird, You know? Will Smith is the genie in live action and all that, But I don't even remember the movie that intimately from when I was a kid. Oddly enough, my mom was not big on Disney stuff, so I didn't Probably have the same experience with some of those movies that other kids did. But of course, I remembered some of the big songs and a whole new world that song comes on. And obviously the context and intent of that song are different in that movie than they are in the reality We're living in right now. But it it does feel like that, right? We're in a whole new world. I don't know if life is ever going to go back to the way it was exactly I think you know we're going to see some permanent changes as a result of this And we don't know how exactly sports are going to work. Out in this. This whole new world that we're dealing with him were adjusting to like I think some people got so used to what we were doing. And of course, there's so much anxiety and fear and everything. It's even hard to accept the possibility that some of this is happening. And I'm not one of the people that says cancel all sports or or anything close to that. Ah, you know, I have some feelings about college football. I'm a little bit more if he on college football Simple because of course of the economic structure of college sports. They're going to bring a lot of money to the schools, local economies, But the participants there aren't aren't own Being compensated to me. There may be should be a different standard for college sports and in college football, especially since there's not a universal standard across the lake. There's different conferences, different schools. You know, players may be interacting with students on campus on and it's not a professional operation, where the participants are highly compensated, but for professional sports, I'll go back to what I said. I think you have to, or you should proceed. Wisely not proceed recklessly, but should proceed because there are a lot of ripple effects to not playing. I mean, we just saw baseball players fighting with the league over money, and it was a tone deaf look, and I thought it was Not just the tone deaf in the sense that, um, there are so many people out of work and people stuck at home, and they were fighting over money, but also it allowed baseball's voice at a very important Um, social moment in this country, of course Post George Boyd. To baseball's voice to become Just about that. So when you thought about baseball baseball who were the important voices in baseball, all you heard was that squabbling over money But, you know, the economic aspect of things is very real. It's very riel, you know, And I'm not somebody that Is ah! All about money or or don't worship money, or that's not my number. One goal in life is money. Obviously, I want it for convenience for security, all that sort of stuff. But I also deal in reality, and the reality is if there's no seasons Players are taking an economic hit team employees They're taking an economic hit. Businesses that rely on sports for advertising and other things could be taking an economic hit. Sports media could be taking an economic hit. So it's not just this simple as saying. Get rid of it. And also if you were to say, get rid of it now. Who's to say you're not saying get rid of it next season because we don't even know for sure it will be different. But that's what I'm saying. By a whole new world. None of us know what to expect. You know, you look at the Yankees and they have a lot of depth on that team. So that's one of the positives because you're going to need death, perhaps more than ever, because you're gonna have guys going on the disabled list for for Kobe 19. And the Yankees also were able to get healthy. From a regular injury standpoint, during this time period if the season had started. Normally, they have a bunch of guys banged up instead. Obviously they've got a couple on the shelf that I just reference and Aaron judges apparently dealing with a stiff neck, but there they're relatively healthy. The relatively healthy going into the season. And for for the Mets, you know you look at them and you see some buzz and excitement, You know suspicious, saying he'll be ready for opening day and and with a D. H in the NL Now that could be a big deal, and he's in a contract year, so that could be a big deal. And I'm betting a lot of fans were just starting to process and and get ready for what's coming in and maybe crossing your fingers a little bit. No. A 60 game season two. I did AH New York radio for a long time. New York sports writing for a long time and one of my running bits around baseball, and how Obsessed. Some of the fan bases are with baseball was that they would call in like every game was, you know the season. And I would laugh because of the length of a baseball season. I was, like, you know, check back with me in August, when the Mets would start a season hot like here we come. And I'm like, Hey, maybe come down. Check back with me in August or the Yankees would be in a little bit of adult Germans suffered injury. I don't know the sky has fallen and check back with me. But this year it's actually a little different. This year. It's actually a little different with 60 games. So if the Mets do get off to a hot start, could a team like that the Mets be, you know, putting a more advantageous situation. Given the unknown I mean that they have things they're going to have to deal with. We still don't know who's going to wind up buying them. Ah, Syndergaard situation is the same, of course. And you know the Yankees instead of like last year..

where the public sentiment is right now it's one of the reasons drew Brees did a one eighty the NFL's done a one eighty hopefully they they did so from their hearts as well but but clearly the public sentiment is that way and then with the the new situation NASCAR up publicly rebuked it and investigated it and there was some sort of weird push back against them for that once the the statement from the FBI and the department of justice came out saying that it was a garage pull and and not a hate crime first of all even if it was a garage full and not a hate crime good right like we don't want it to be a hate crime no one wants there to be a hate crime that there I've I rooting against hate crimes good secondly even if that's true and they put out that statement no one was harmed no one's reputation was besmirched it's not like they said this person committed a hate crime and then it was revealed later that person did not in that person's life and reputation was ruined that did not happen no individual suffered from that basically all you had was a message of we condemn racism and hate crimes which is a message most people should get behind and then the the picture of the thing actually came out and NASCAR up brought the receipts and they said here's the photo when it was a news right where they were at the Roseburg they may have served the purpose of being a garage door opener I don't know but it was certainly fashion as a news and they said they they they searched all their the garages and they only found a handful of ropes that were fashioned as garage pulls in general and only one news which happened to be a door into the garage that bubble Wallace there only nasco the only black NASCAR driver was using the same black NASCAR driver who put black lives matter on his car and who called for a ban of the Confederate flag so a reasonable person would see that be horrified and at least one to investigate now I'll wait until all the facts of the matter come out because you know just like you can't eat I don't know I'm not going to trust the information until it's real I mean some of these institutions have been corrupted to its sense where we can't take what they say at face value either right so regardless what we do know I'll do with the fact that we do now you saw that picture that was in use we know what Bubba Wallace's been standing for so I think NASCAR did the right thing with the strong stance that is taken and I think it's actually one itself some fans because I I don't I don't know if I've ever watch a NASCAR event my life I'm more likely to watch NASCAR now you know the moment they had earlier this week with Bubba Wallace was a a strong you know people keep calling for unity there was a unity building moment and I keep talking about people telling on themselves the you know the the the people who have a a backlash to what NASCAR did it again I think they're telling on themselves because there's no victim here if you know it was simply a garage full no one was was wrong and what do you actually mad about like that with your mad about that what are you mad about that's what I I don't get or understand eight five five two one two four two two seven eight five five two one two four two two seven let's go to Mitch in New Jersey Mitch you're up next on CBS sports radio's going homage ironically he what's going on here's a look I'm glad and years come back and we should come back real soon I'm very interesting Sierra Club is the maybe this which is why more get a mobile health being currently roster but as its candidate their locks and dams the Lakers in everybody's interests and look primed can win can win with legacy as far as time goes I think probably one of the ventilator and interest you great clients second best my book but I'm hoping the clip that wish they were on opposite sides the media files but I can make lake is just coverages have to worry about the Lakers and I would say to get another and spa time this season from the start with resume rather well I mean look it's been a while but they had that they had that you know you have to deal with the reality like I said before and thanks for the call like you have to proceed wisely I believe in proceeding I believe sport should come back I believe life should go on but you gotta proceed wisely and not recklessly and the NBA has proceeded wisely I mean arm I think you know it if you ask Adam silver now there's probably things he would have done differently in general about the entire process but we are all dealing with the unknown and now he has the benefit of more information he has the the benefit of of consulting with health experts out of it enhanced testing and he has made a decision and and the the league has made a decision and the players were consulted in the decision and the players were given the option of whether they want to participate or not their own individual choice and to me that's leadership right that is leadership what what they've displayed in this and and he said yesterday what what's the exact quote but we are left with no choice but to learn to live with this virus no options are risk free right now we.

"You're listening to the robin Lundberg welcome back Adam the bowl with you in for robin Lundberg on this Superbowl Saturday morning the number to jump in with me is eight five five two one two four C. B. S. that's eight five five two one two four two two seven we're talking Superbowl as I mentioned before the break of you with us I will hit on a few other topics along the way a little bit of baseball and a little bit of a fan behavior at basketball games and just in general get all of that but right now we're talking about the Superbowl the for those who pay attention to such things the Kansas City Chiefs are a one and a half point favorite they opened as a one point favorite no line is moved to half the over under the games fifty four I love a lot of these prop bets I'm on the game I might might not get the some of the later again this summer I think the best bet is and I'm not trying to get political so my going to make any other comments about this but I think the best bet on the props is will Donald Trump tweet during the game the game with the commercials in the half time is like four hours there's no way he can go for hours without tweeting so that seems like a lock to me I think that's the best prop it but you know some of these are really crazy is this political ones this call you know I'm not a mixed sports ones there it you bet on the Gatorade the length of the I. what is the live close to the singer is aware it's amazing what you can better but it's all it's all out there on non involved with any of that I think some of the funny I'll bring up a couple later but but in terms of the a game and you know listen D. a lot of V. advanced analytics there's a there's a stacked hold D. V. O. way yeah I'm not gonna get too much into the woods in that but it it it it seems to be a good metric OR stat for saying how good is this team's offense how good is this team's defense and when you look at the disparity in D. V. O. way between the chiefs and the Niners defensively the Niners have a big edge there and traditionally teams that have a big edge in that stat in the Super Bowl those teams traditionally not only win but cover the spread on average at you know also that that's it but what I would say to come there and they don't always win but what I would say is that I think bedroom homes is such a historically great quarterback and as I said before well I think the Niners defense is very very good I don't think it's historically great I expect this game to be very close the odds makers have a close I expected to be very close the the the nerd part of me that loves these of that van stats is telling me to pick the Niners the old school got football guy in the which usually wins is telling me to pick the chiefs I'm a little torn but I am going with the chiefs but I think I'd be surprised if this game more one sided I see this ending with Patrick mom's school get a game winning touchdown when it and that's that's how I see it.

"Robin Lundberg is all on the year your welcome here's robin Lundberg college football player okay LSU overall the because all state I would you mind a thirteen and a half Clemson minus two the second game the bigger game as far as the expectations I think for how good the game will be in which team actually has a chance to win the national championship it in many ways I I think the first thing is the more interesting game storyline wise at least you got the Heisman Trophy winner you've got the the coach you produce the last two Heisman Trophy winners before the current one you got Joan hurts and his whole story but people just expect those you to run over Oklahoma what do you expect are you are you super excited super pumped for the college football playoff eight five five two one two four two two seven I mean the answer should be yes right again like I said before if this is the Superbowl we could take prediction because we could take you know all sorts of of theories thoughts and analysis so what you would hope that the the college football playoff if it's working the way that they wanted to what would generate the same sort of buzz and excitement eight five five two one two four two two seven let's go to Jay in Louisiana J. you're up next here on CBS sports radio what's going on Jay Hey man I'm super pumped about this game today I knew it was you don't pull it out I have to say though I listen to your comments about go through your coaching a long time and he's not alligator either Jay I I didn't mean I mean I that was sort of a joke I didn't mean that it's a dis what what I meant is that's the way people view him especially in contrast to a Lincoln Riley but you have to give him credit for what LSU is done this season and you can't dismiss his ability as a coach and I I feel like people sort of do because he's very cartoonish that's what I meant by that that's right everybody is outside Luzon things we all go to school in P. rose and their boat so he he's he's from here yeah but he's he's worked a long time in the league I respect him a lot he's a good coach and he's done a lot for real issue and but I think it was you don't pull it out the other three game is kinda interesting enough think if somebody comes out will serve on.

"Rubinsohn eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six how about berry and Sayerville you're up next here on the fan. What's going on very ironic? How are you tonight? Good. How are you? Hey, look. Giant for a long time. My father used to games stadium. So I got really long back. And I think he lays out some great things. But I also think that he's only really true, really great wrongs. And fortunately that transferred to Lombardi trophies. But I think his time is up. And. I think the giants should really make a play for Nick foles. And then. You're right. Save that money. I guess that money would go the foles then stop. Got some big the decisions they've made recently. And then get rid of landing council. Nothing. I guess Verna wasn't too bad. But you're apple they wasted pretty much. A I wanna take on are the third round pick. On the list of things that I think they're doing ridiculously goes earning earning wondering about your thoughts on. Yeah. I mean that was the Genesis of this question regarding whether or not giants fans still have faith in the organization because they've made more questionable moves. They've had more. You know, embarrassing things happen publicly, then you're typically used to with that organization. Now, again, the the down period has not been that long. And you know, you're never that far from recovering in the NFL either. So I also wouldn't dismiss allies run as to run two years. I know that sounds good people like to say that. If we were all to take away, our two greatest accomplishments, all of our resumes. Look worse, right. When you're greatest accomplishments are two runs through the playoffs because it's not just the Super Bowl ill. I was great in those playoffs. Just like he was great in the Superbowls and the two SuperBowl MVP's. There's a reason people have an attachment to that because that doesn't happen. There's a lot of franchises in the jets who would love for anything like that to happen to their team once forgetting twice in a couple of years handful of years. So that's why he has a special place in people's hearts and aside from that he's been a pretty good quarterback through the course of his career not the best quarterback who ever lived. But the best quarterback in the history of the city. You know, I think he lies top. I know Eli is top ten in passing yards and touchdowns. To go with the two Super Bowls. He's had an excellent career. He's just at the back end of it now and the giants it's always tough when you're dealing with the transition from someone who has earned that much equity with your franchise because it's it's very easy to cut bait with someone who doesn't matter to your team, or it doesn't matter to your fan base. It's a lot harder to make the transition when that person has earned some rope, some leeway, and that's been the case with Eli. But we're now almost two years into this like transition period with lie. And I think most people realize in has to include Eli at this point himself that that transition is coming fill in Brooklyn fill you're up next here on the fan. What's going on, Phil? Yeah. How you doing? What's up, man? I just got one question wrong. Good. Okay. Do you like? I love subway service. I don't know. What if you're gonna do a prank call can you at least make it funny? That's that's what I asked for a prank call if you're gonna prank. I'm cool do it. But like make me laugh do something tricked me. So what did he say? Do you do I like subway service? So what he said if it gets me to where I'm going or is he talking about the the fast food sandwich restaurant is he talking about the MTA. I don't know because it was bad. That's that's why don't know your call was bad, and you should be ashamed of yourself. Let's go to Connor and Belmar Connor you're up next on the fan. What's going on? Hey, what's going on, man? What's up? I got one question for you. All right. I didn't wear the New York Giants going next year. Linebackers where you're going with many in the next.
