You know, 58 years, I guess is that right since the Mets came into existence, 1962 and over a two year period, Bobby not to keep blowing smoke. Get away. But over a two year period when you consider you had your baseball team playing the Yankees in an epic subway, Siri's battle and the year after you went through 9 11 year stay in New York was was quite a memorable stay. But we keep mentioning my Piaz. And yet that big home run, But Bobby is you know, Gianfranco, very, very good friend of mine to this day. He was friendly with so many cops and fireman, and he kind of became along with you on your team, the face for all that I distinctly remember Gianfranco crying in that first series on the road in Pittsburgh against the Pirates. And I know to this day he still talks him and boom, precise and other guys about that. They talk about Gianfranco his leadership abilities in and around 9 11. Well, John John with the captain. And for good reason. Hey, he has and had great leadership qualities. And you know this this truck home with him? Yeah, The tears were plentiful. And you know about that September 21st. You know, we spent those 10 days with our families. A few hours of of the days were spent practicing many days of those days. Kevin McCarthy, and to let Jay Horwitz and many other volunteers were tryingto stage things in the Shay Stadium parking lot, so that we could send supplies down to to ground zero. The players with Johnny's leadership and others helped in the cause. But you know the thing that Johnny and in Todd's deal and and, um Light on the whole group. I think Alice there, you know, we went down about on right before we went back to Pittsburgh. We'll be back when the guys were asking me what was like the ground zero and, you know, I put together a couple of police cars. We put the seat back in the back seat because we're transporting all the stuff from Shea Stadium and police cars. They took the back seats out to make more room for storage because you couldn't maneuver a truck down there. Yoli maneuver. Passenger card and get supplies down to those who are need the rescue effort. Voted up one of the cars with guys. They think even two of the cars with guys and we went down and we brought, you know memorabilia kind of T shirts and hats and met stickers were handing them out to people. And that's where The idea of wearing the first responders. Hats came from that Johnny and Todd were giving out had that some of these sits Hilda first responders who are there? It, Um Yeah, And I hope you got me. You know what we have? Yeah, and there was a hat exchange blood. The firemen who were there came over in gay gave a Ah n F T and why To be or Thailand and said, Hey, would you guys wear this in memory of fellow might, uh, colleagues who are lost and that's where we started with. An incredible story, the former manager of the Mets Bobby Valentine, I just want what would have reminded him that we had Bernie Kerik in that former NYPD commissioner the day the planes at the the Towers. Hey, thank Jim Fossil. He made a point. He wanted to make a point. We had coach coach Fast fossil on the Giants, the Giants, who they made many trips down to Ah, pile of ground zero. And Bernie Kerik was very appreciative as I'm sure he was a coach Valentine. Oh, yeah. Manager Valentine effort, And he's talking about the story about the exchange of hats, Todd zeal and Johnny Franco giving the guys down there met hat, They give them f d N y hat. You may remember that series against the Pirates and all You remember Matt all your big Met band. They were wearing those hats. Right, Franco zeal before a baseball game FD. And why NYPD and all I'm thinking about his Bobby Valentine is talking about that is that would never happen to write exam Never happen. Thes these bastard. How soon we forget these commissioners Rob Man When Roger Goodell and Adam Silver all these courageous commissioners, they would never ally. Not never unbelievable. I mean, that's the thing you know. Throw it out the window now. 11 day, Jon Stewart's fighting for the first responders.

"We talked to Casey stern our number one in eighty old. Checking our number two hour number three is gonna be you. And I on the telephone lines talking about several different things at five to one to four two two seven. Get aboard be NBA NHL baseball in their races. Or the very sad news that, we just heard the passing of Bill Buckner. In two days in a row. I was here yesterday when we found out that Bart star, one of the all-time payments winners in football passed away in his eighties. Bart Starr, excuse me. Bill Buckner pass today at the age of sixty nine which seems a little on the young side with medical technology. Bantus. We're just living older -ociety, so sixty nine maybe it's because it's sixty-nine and not seventy that seems a little bit of difference. You're right there at the end of a decade. It just seems too young to lose a guy like Bill Buckner and it is somewhat ironic. And if you do this, as long enough, as I've done in thirty years at sports talk radio, you have to talk about the passing of people that you followed that you considered contemporaries, Bill Buckner is not that far off. Yeah. I watched them as a kid. But I was a kid. They didn't predate me. I didn't see most of Bart Starr's career and he passed away in his eighties. I saw as an older player stone affect the player, but not at the top of its game. I basically saw all Bill Buckner career from nineteen sixty nine through nineteen ninety while that's a long time to play professional sports. Twenty two year veteran was Bill Buckner and the sad thing is that he will be remembered more. So for the fact that the ball went to his legs in the World Series against the New York Mets. Hey the damn good player, a won a batting title in nineteen eighty Bill Buckner hit three twenty four for the Chicago Cubs. There's only one batting title winner, every single year any leak to American League nationally does, only one. So he's one of a select group UIs actually won a batting title. Twenty seven hundred career hits the magic number three thousand right? You get to three thousand gold plated stamp into the hall of fame. Bill Buckner, at least dance the dance any gut close. He didn't earn his way into the hall of fame. He wasn't a hall of Famer he was close. And he was a good dude. And it was so sad that, that play happened, not that I thought the time because yes, I root and could imagine to time but he was a better player than that to be historically remembered as just that. And it's damn. And at the time the red Sox's losers because the Red Sox had won the World Series in forever. And they didn't. And if it was supposed to be the breaking of the Curzon, it didn't happen for many more years after until eight finally beat the Yankees won a World Series now they won several but back then the curse continued because a Bill Buckner and he was. The guy who allowed the curse to continue and just not fair because he was a significantly better player than that had a really solid, professional career. Eight years with the dodgers eight years. With the cubs five with the Red Sox again he remembered more as a red sock than anything else last couple years bounced around big little bit Cup with the royals coupled with the angels even ended up. His last stop in the bigs was returned to Boston for twenty two games in nineteen ninety Albie to even though he his most memorable play will come as a red sock. I think of a more as a Cup. It's funny because he started his career with the dodgers in played for some teams that made the postseason. But I always thought of him as a Cup, a ad is better. One is batting title with the cubs, I'd say, yeah, I'd better years with the cubs that he did with the drove in over one hundred runs with the cubs troubling over on runs twice with the Red Sox. So I don't want to downplay the Red Sox girded. Yeah. Because he had a damn good career at Boston, but he had the career split basically between three teats starting with the dodgers logging. Usually you log eight years with the team, you've got to be associated with that team. Then he lied eight more weed becomes and you would think that I want to know quite a Cup. Well, then he gloved five more with the Red Sox, including two hundred RBI years, well into his thirties. But unfortunately the ball also went to his legs there, so it's unfortunate. We sent out our condolences to the buck their family and to all bills friends. Apparently he had been ill for a little bit of a while a little bit while and pass away at the age of sixty nine and I can't and we'll say this. I was at night. There's he did a poll here in New York nationwide. Whatever they're probably a million two million three million people that will claim to a been there. The night the ball into Buckner slacks. I actually was I had a seat in chase stadium for that game. And as a matter of fact, the old Shay stadium had five different levels feel level. Then they had the loge level, which was the small little level between the field level and press box. And then add the press level, which today they have on oppress level in most stadiums suites with bars and flat, screen TV's, and carpeting, and their luxury boxes. There was no such thing like that stadium. Now it was the field level, loge level, the press level, the mezzanine level was above depress level. And then you had the upper deck, which. Was all the way up top at five different levels. I was in the Loach level, which was good feet, not feel level, but the next level up, and I actually prefer little elevation and watching a baseball game and I would down the third baseline. But we were looking right down the first baseline, if you know what I mean, have you said, sitting directly behind on plate if you sit to left, then you're down the third base line, but that gives you the possibility to look into the dugout on the other side of the field. And look directly down the first baseline. So I was sitting directly in the line of the ball as it went to Bill, Buckner slacks, and yes, as met fan at the time I was exalting and cheering and screaming and high-fiving or whatever else in, I know even considered what kind of affect it was going to have on Bill, Buckner, der people that'll tell you Bill Buckner just never was the same player after that year. That was his last hundred RBI year. He had a really good solid season for the Red Sox. That year into sixty seven hit eighteen homers. Drove in one hundred and two runs the next year. Yeah he didn't have quite as good a season. He ended up getting traded to the angels in that season spent a couple years in California got traded to can't see Royal spent a couple years, there that was the last rock, Bill Buckner and it was unfortunate because he had been a dynamite player up until that point in his career, and it marked the downturn of Bill Buckner career at first, he had issues with the city of Boston because they let know about him letting the ball to his legs that next year. He never went back to any old timers days or anything any of the celebrations and years, had to go by I think, decades, maybe even have to go by before he and the Boston fan base restoked their relationship, and he became a fan favourite after the pain had worn off a little bit. But that's unfortunate. We lose Bill Buckner today at the age of sixty nine and. And I think it's somewhat balancing in the sporting world that on the day before we lose Bill Buckner, who was thought of, in one of the most painful losses of all time, we lost part star who was one of the greatest winners of all time. Not as Blackie is the quarterbacks of this millennium. But a stone cold winter, five championships. All a guy did was win win win win win. So we wanna talk you the Bart Starr, or Bill Buckner hop on my telephone lines, eight five five two on two four two two seven. Chris from San Diego's on CBS sports radio. Hello, chris. Thank you, real quick. Condolences to the star family and the family, those great heroes starts, sixty six accused our stadium really. And this somebody invited me onto the bus and I shook his hand and brought store was in the front row sitting right behind that. Somebody. Wow. That experience and myself. But what, what an experience quick. I wanna talk real quick about the warriors and their vulnerability and dirty play. I say dirty because on multiple occasions, you have seen Draymond green, and the warriors Kip opponents in the cross seven footers a while ago. He did it to the Brown, but it was a couple years ago. Let me finish telling you what they're gonna do to reach ago. He scratched hard in the face. Not one game two games. These are not accident, these kids, your place dirty players, and let, let me interrupt let me let me interrupt. Let me interrupt. Let me rep you'll stop players. Give me a second after Draymond. Go ahead. You used the word players after Draymond. Give me the other dirty warrior player who comes off the bench. The guy was six ten with less stash rights, get a guy. I can't think of his name, but he likes getting in, you know, no, no, no, no, no, no light skinned guy coming off the bench, the month stash. Come on. If you're gonna denigrate somebody if you're gonna call in and you're going to get in someone's face and get near cadets welling you wanna you wanna play tough guy on the phone. You could do it. But at least that the name tobacco up, you can't tell me that the worries. But dirty plays and not be able to name them. He draymond. Yes. I will admit to that. I will I think that it's a little overstated because he's done it in some really big spots. It's kind of stood out, but he's done it. So I said that. I think Draymond green plays with an edge and at times is a dirty player. Yes. He does things in takes chances that can lend themselves to injury. And that's how you define a dirty player. I I'll I'll agree with you on Draymond green. You gotta give me another one. If you want to say players make poor oral. You have to have a second name and the warriors don't have another player plays like that Andre Goodall plays ARD. He plays some of the best defense in the NBA it helped get him an NBA finals MVP because he did the job that he did on LeBron James, but he doesn't play dirty Andre you dollars dirty player. Steph curry is not a dirty player trying to tell me Klay Thompson dirty player. I don't think so. No. The warriors are not dirty team. You say that Draymond green is a dirty player. Okay. I'll, I'll cosign with that one, but you can't just do a blanket warriors or dirty team because Draymond green. That's just not fair. Eight five five two on two four two two seven.

And then add depress level, which today, they have an oppressed level in most stadiums suites with bars and flat, screen TV's, and carpeting and their luxury boxes. There was no such thing like that. Okay stadium. Now it was the field level, the loge level the press level, the mezzanine level was above depress level. And then you had the upper deck, which. Which was all the way up top Sunday at five different levels. I was in the Loach level, which was good feet not feel level, but the next level up, and I actually prefer little elevations and watching a baseball game. And I would down at third base line. But we were looking right down the first baseline, if you know what? I mean, have you says sitting directly behind on played if you sit the left, then you're down the third base line, but that gives you the possibility to look into the dugout on the other side of the field. And look directly down the first baseline. So I was sitting directly in the line of the ball as it went to Bill Buckner flakes. And yes, as a met fan at the time I was exalting cheering and screaming and high-fiving or whatever else, and I never even considered what kind of affect it was going to have on Bill Buckner, Derek people that'll tell you to Bill Buckner just never was the same player after that year. That was his last hundred RBI year. He had a really good solid season for the Red Sox that year to sixty seven hit eighteen homers. Drove in one hundred and two runs the next year. Yeah he didn't have quite as good a season. He ended up getting traded to the angels in that season. Spent a couple of years in California got traded to can't see Royal spent a couple of years there that was the last rock, Bill Buckner and it was unfortunate because he had been a dynamite player up until that point in his career. And it marked the downturn of Bill Buckner career at first, he had issues with the city of Boston, because they let no bad him letting the ball to his legs that next year. He never went back to any old timers days or anything like any of the celebrations and years, had to go by I think decades, maybe even have to go by before he Andy Boston fan base restock their relationship, and he became a fan favourite after the pain had worn off a little bit. But that's unfortunate. We lose Bill Bethnal today at the age of sixty nine and. And I think it's somewhat balancing in the sporting world that on the day before we lose Bill Buckner, who was thought of, in one of the most painful losses of all time, we had lost part star who was one of the greatest winners of all time. Not as blanche is the quarterbacks of this millennium. But a stone, cold winter five championships all guy did was win win win win win. So to talk to the Bart star or Bill Buckner, hop, on my telephone lines, eight five five two one, two four two two seven cry from San Diego's on CBS sports radio. Hello, chris. Thank you, real quick. Condolences to the star family and the family of great heroes. Starring six and six keys are stadium really.

How you doing? I'm doing. All right. I got a question for you. You know, everybody's harping on Harper Machado when they're gonna sign. My thirties that the problem is Scott Boris. I feel like he is overconfident guy only wants to settle for what he wants. Right. And he doesn't want to accept a lower deal. He wants to come out on top. And look like they're super agent that he thinks he is. And you also funny. How do you? How do you sell the fact to your client that nobody's offering what we wanted? I know. I mean, I remember he was a he was eight rods agent when he was going through that whole thing. Right. And he. All these other kind of crazy. Probably the jets, and it's just it seems like this guy. Just try to top themselves with every top free agents. That's out in the funny. Every year he gets that. He gets that. The mystery team, and there's no mystery team this year. It's. I wonder how how difficult is it will? Harvest ball wants to play before the agent. You know, you you're selling. A decade. And big money. And owners go. No, that's okay. Let's face it. How many teams were going to go for that ten year who how many teams could afford it? If the Yankees wanted to they could've dodgers if they wanted to so Boston. There's only a few teams that are gonna pony up that kind of money. Now, let's go to JR in Philly. Jay how they are. How are you? I'm doing okay. How are you? Tony. All right. Is it snowing down there with you? It's in the sewing for Dana hamster. Pretty good. Knowing I I wanted to talk about Frank Robinson before we move this. You know, growing up, you know, you really was my favorite player and a lot of respects. But the thing that's interesting is, you know, at the time of the trade Pappas when he went through Cincinnati, Baltimore and Pappas went to Cincinnati. People. Always it was one of the worst traits in baseball history. The ironic thing is that Pappas by today's standards would have been one of the great pictures of all time because you went over two games. He did that without a single twenty game seasons. And it was really kind of a fair trade, except that the reds result pathetic, not only give up on Robinson's. But they also gave up on Pappas because they ended up just getting impatient with him at all. Now, they basically just pitch for season two, and then they trade it to Madrid land. I think eventually pitched his best for the cubs in the early seventies. When he output Steve Carlton in a game that took an errand thirty one minutes. The cubs won one to nothing. And I mean, there's literally like. It was one of the fastest games in baseball industries in any game long story short. I wanted. This was not just a great player. But you know, one of those guys that one of the first black managers, the San Francisco and really opened the door for a lot of other guys. It's great talk with you. All right, man. Yeah. It was a trade. I was just looking at his numbers. He started pitching in the majors at eighteen. Fifteen game winning at age twenty. Let's go to Sal and Aberdeen. Sal, you're on the fan. Hey, Tony how you doing? All right, man. You know, what I I got two minutes ago. And I wasn't watching the clock. I put you on hold and get back to you. No problem.

And he had a fabulous rookie year. And I talked with him at great length in the book. And I said you don't met you had your best year as a rookie. Why is that? And he said look at the competition. I was playing against. And he said after that the league better every single year, and it got tougher and tougher to excel. Yeah. But it seems like the fans really did take to the team in those first years, right? But I think Tim elect pointer was the stadium. Yeah. Yeah. You know, Shay stadium was supposed to be for. It's time. You know, a great place to watch football or baseball and the the met look if you look at the attendance figures for the Mets where they move from Apollo grounds. Barely drew. I don't think that even drew a million people if they did it was just over. But only went to Shea Stadium the tendons exploded because it was a beautiful clean ballpark with great sight lines. And no posts that sort of thing. And for football Shea Stadium was pretty darn good. You know, as a football Benue and sunny wearable in jazzed up the ballpark. You said you went to see jets game will sunny word land, put a complete band a professional band out left field near the wall. And he had this little jet plane going up and down the sidelines. Every time the jets scored. So he rush. Nuys that football could and should be more than just football. It should be an afternoon or evening of entertainment. Yeah. And know, it's new it's fresh, right? And it's it's a destination. But you know, that that's currently not gonna last long, and you wonder, and it's probably very simplistic right to say, well, everything changed when Nemeth arrive while certainly it did right. But this is also a story as you get into your book and culminate it will get to the get to the end of it eventually in the actual Super Bowl number three. This is this is not just Joe Nemeth and nothing else. Right. There is a team that that we've Eubank is building a number of these players are there for a good portion of this run from the decrepit. Former titans and polo grounds into this new thing. Let's talk about Nemeth. Right. Because this is that you you can avoid that. Right. The fact that they were able to get him number one is an interesting story, right? Because have the worst record in the AFL, but they certainly weren't all that they made a very fortuitous deal. But let me get to the point that you I made here in that is a good the rest of the team was by sixty eight there were ten other jets who were in the AFL all star game the week after the Super Bowl reliving all told may Muth was the eleventh. And I mean, Gerry Philbin was a great defensive that. He's in the heat made the all AFL all time team at you. As a defensive end. He only played six years. John Eliot was a right. Tackle people today. They mix up Jetsons. A mix of John Elliott played offensive tackle in the eighties nineties for the jets with this. Guy. John Eliot, the defensive tackle was an excellent dynamo. And you know, I found it. I knew that he was really quick. And that it made him really hard for you know, offense lineman to block him. I know idea exactly what that meant. I just give you an example, and buddy was a two hundred ninety five pounds six foot five inch offense of guard and he played opposite. John elliott. Buddy played for Kansas City. I talked to buddy about playing against Elliott because he was dead when I was writing a book. And so I needed somebody who could tell me I'm gonna play this guy was and I said why didn't she just run over you had them by two inches and fifty pounds. And he said I couldn't.

I grew up in the New York metropolitan area myself northern New Jersey in in in fact, had enough of a an exposure to Shay stadium over the over that time it was not immediately close.

But you know, my first football game ever was new New York Jets game against the the New England Patriots back in the day. And the, you know, the, you know, my first baseball game was a Yankee game. But my second one and the second two or three games were met games. You know, so some very interesting and memorable. Events in my sort of Shea Stadium background. But let's get into before we get into the story, which I think is really interesting, and and kind of a really good example of some of the kinds of things we'd like to isolate and sort of delve into on this little show. Give us a little bit of background about you. And how this story of the slice of a shea. Stadium's history came onto your radar and enough to compel you to to commit it to writing. Well, it was an idea that I I came up with in about two thousand twelve going to few years back, and I came across the story and founded fascinating because I mean these days you're not even two teams sharing stadium. Let alone three or four. It seemed like such such a bizarre story. And I figured that people who are young enough didn't know that it ever happened and people that were older might have forgotten that it had happened. So I started doing some research realized there was very little written on it. And you know, it was something that I had always wanted to write something about Shea Stadium to your point. It's the stadium that I grew up going to with my dad, and my mom, and my grandparents, and I I always wanted to write something about shea, and this that combined with the story became what ended up happening for me. So a lot of this story were kind of circling around the year nineteen seventy five in shea stadium's history for those outside. The New York metropolitan area were just living under a rock at that time last night. Literally, we have not dropped the episode yet. We will soon we had a very good conversation about the AFL version of the jets with a guy named Bob letters got a new book out about called beyond Broadway. Joe where he kinda delves into the team of that year and a little bit of a before. And how it got that way? But not from sort of the lens of like, Joe Nemeth being all things and that but recognition that there was a whole team and support staff around him that were arguably neglected and not sort of given as much much in the way of props as that that magical season of sixty eight to sixty nine accommodated in the in the Super Bowl when in that year..

But for a while Shea Stadium was not just the center of New York City sports where you can make the argument sports in this country who have four teams playing here. First time ever in US sports history where you have four teams sharing the stadium. And none of them are really that good to be honest with you the Mets were eighty two and seventy th the Yankees were kind of on the upswing at this point. But they only had eighty three wins. They didn't make the play off. The giants were unforgettable the jets weren't that. Good. I think the interesting thing that you one remember about this deal shape. Is that the jets and the Mets called Shea Stadium? Home the Yankees and the giants never belonged there. They were out of place to begin with. And all it did was enhance the sour taste in advance miles because their teams weren't that good anyway and on top of that plane where the jets and the Mets play.

From city across from, it's not directly across from city field, but it's this chop shop. Dude, I shot. I shot a bit there like for my car show crazy. It looks like fucking Brazil like it yet. That's good. Where's a good picture of it here on this is this is legit. This is America and it's directly across the street from the beautiful stadium that that they play and the streets have like like the puddles. You're see here, they're like a foot deep. Well, because they don't. The city has abandoned will. It's point they're trying to make. They're trying to just make it die and go away. They want. They want to go all the resources. They wanted develop it into a. There's the pothole so they, they wanna develop it into one of those, you know, gentrify look, here's the, here's the picture. This is the exact picture look Brazil. Yes, youthful stadium. It's directly across where they had that in the Bronx too. But this was when you steal a car, you bring it here and they take it apart. We'll chop shot early an early draft of the script. There was a hall. It was much more about the car thefts and they would bring these cars to a guy. There's all these like mobster guys who run these chop shops. It's so it's so there's no, there's they don't repair. The city has literally abandoned. This is like the only part of New York City that the city has disowned. There's no services there. There's no trash collection, nothing. No, it's crazy. So it's become third world. It almost looks more like New Delhi. So yeah, there's potholes. So we shot there. But again, we're shooting with insane pot holes and stuff. So it was another challenge, but it's a bizarre crazy. I did a bit for television show is on and we were talking about I was literally driving a brand new Mercedes one hundred forty thousand dollar Sadie there, and I was driving around in a row and I had to do we do drive by shots, right? So I literally was driving around the block over and over and every time I go around, they'd booth the camera and drive you get different shots, but the residents of that area were fucking looking at me. So cross eyed because I'm looping around over and over in this really expensive, Mercedes, very, they were like something really bad. It's going to happen. The kept looking at me supercross. I don't go in there unless they have a reason to go in there. I don't think there's like males livery there. It is. So Craig achy, I love it. I love the little piney gritty as look at this. I mean, telling you look like if I showed you this picture and I. Told you that we were in Mexico, you'd believe me. Lou that you'd believe me. My said, this was Mexico. This is in New York City today? Yeah, this their, oh, even when it's dry, the puddle. It's almost like they hosed. They never goes. Welcome. Goes crazy. There's always the guy. Yeah, that guy with the umbrella. He's just walking making sure your vote. When I was in high school used to park. Shea Stadium. It was the regular parking lot, but you'd always wanna find your street parking because it was free and inevitably you'd wind up. The only place to park was in in Willets point, and it's right next to shea, the old ill-chosen..

So I'll tell this story when Keith left the chair, one nine. I think he covered jet the Jackie Robinson night and Shea Stadium. The first time where I guess baseball honored Jackie Robinson by having everyone by retiring his number across the league for the first time, right in Mariana. Rivera was grandfathered in into not having to give up his forty two. That. Keith went down to Shay stadium and did his hits from Shea Stadium. So in order to do the highlights, though they got to chew, they chose one person to sit next to Dan. For the big show. And it was Bob Stevens who got the choice. Bob got the nod and I swear to you. All of us were sitting there going. What like? So you take Keith out? Don't put in me, don't put it student putting Linda, don't put and Kenny Mayne don't put in. I mean, we could go on and on and on and on. I think Habes might have been around still bread Heyer and we were all look at each other. Like what. And again, Bob sweetheart of a man. His honor persona was similar to Ned Flanders is the only way to put it very polite. Okay, very polite. And you know this read the highway had Bob Stevens was the one they put in there. Vermin sitting down with Robin Roberts. Great photo. Great. By the by large, everyone looks exactly the same except to say. Say to Rica, me into Rico are the ones that has a little less air. Everyone reads Davis looks exactly the same Reese Davis. Whatever Paul Rudd has. Okay, whatever. Tom Cruise has recent aged a day and he's had kids a hell of a lot longer than I have. He's got older kids. I definitely asked because he was they were there when I was. I've been gone fifteen years. Are you wearing that?

So this happened yesterday afternoon, Hollywood reporter tweeted out that they're talking about a prequel in development with the original writer and director of the sandlot. So what are you gonna follow the kids when they were eight. Seven when they're born? I don't really. What's the prequel don't really know what the prequel like, who would be the prequel be like before, Smalls his family moved in like what the game was like or NS, Leary's character. They're gonna focus on him maybe, but they remember in the thing they moved to that neighborhood. Dennis Leary character took a new job or something. And now Allen's the wife beasts the dog right there. James Jones. You know, he played on those legendary Yankees team, so maybe they dig dig back in his character if they're going to do any sports movie prequel that I would pay to see..
