"WFAN FM New York there you go seeing all these pictures of teams celebrating the fact that they had good years I mean that's all they can do now you know what a what a nasty slap in the face the dream dying even though it's happening to a lot of other teams and misery loves company it's still you know brutal but you can't as I mentioned earlier can't get it back how about Vegas what does Vegas gonna lose you know how big I mean yes you do so I don't have to tell you you know big be gambling on March madness is well and the tradition that people have of going to Vegas for that weekend hello man and just what I was talking about earlier you cannot make that up you can't there's no way to make it up there's no way to fill the void in these situations which is why in a service economy and it's never been more of a service economy you're the ones that ordering your food in order in everything I mean you have everything delivered by Amazon at cetera it's a service economy this will be you know a real real continuing burden that will take a significant amount of time to recover from Brad in Westfield Connecticut is next on the fan I. Bret Hey Chris I don't know I'm good how are you good thanks also called odd you quick topics about what first kind of person board media coverage like yourself where do you guys we got to talk about in the next coming weeks or sports center do you support says kids are rattling off thirty to thirty or something like that yeah they have a heart and I have it harder than we do I mean that's for sure you know I I can rely on you guys and we can get some guests and talk about sports books and talk about you know how what teams are up to and have some of the players on that art is busy and you know we can work around it for them it's going to be very difficult and also for the NBA players with thirty days of no live game action do you think they'll be a wall and hopefully that BAT to continue I know they probably started their stride midway through the season but taken thirty days all do you think they'll be some help you get back inside thanks Brad I think your guess is as good as mine right and I mentioned that throughout here I don't want to because I have a microphone in this job make people believe that I know more than they do about most of the stuff I don't your guess is as good as mine and I I don't think I don't think there's any way that you know they're back in thirty days I just don't so by the time we get back to normal we may not get back to normal at least not for the winter sports there may not be time or they may be abbreviated who knows what they will come up with in board rooms you know I'll sit in board rooms and try to figure this out over the coming weeks but not before crests doesn't cross they can't make any decisions Thomas Illinois next on the fan hi Thomas I wanted a yes but my biggest concern a Kobe but two quick things but you did you might have time now you almost need to work on your wi fi Nelson impersonation and the other thing you slammed the phone down on the other day but you mentioned a literally a couple of times recently you wanted a little explanation but I I'm you may know this or not but five years ago Merriam Webster did change the definition of that word hello my biggest concern with the Kobe he can't trust you all we we can't trust who's in charge and this is why I was yelling and screaming about the right actors we got to know who these people are dangerous quick when you are detached from reality all right man I appreciated Thomas thanks for checking in Rick in Tampa is next on the fan I Rick so how are you good what's going on yeah yeah you know I do I do I want to make a a Rangers point at the end ranges that yeah zero eight as I was saying Jay down here in Tampa this whole day today and what it feels like it's like a it's like having a hurricane with having our power still on that's kind of what it feels like with the people with the friendliness of by and there's a toilet paper and all that stuff and then with all the all the sports shutting down and you know this is the really the first time where what I really feel sure a lot of people if we're all connected to this because even if you go back to like nine eleven which was such a terrible thing for us as I was living in New York at the time even though the country is that you know the midwestern state and everything perhaps we're a little distance from now that's New York you know that's that kind of thing here everybody everybody is connected to this whereas I am actually tweeting what are you guys on the stage we're going to binge watch now on TV and stuff like that we're all in the same boat with this and for whatever reasons from sports sprout and everything so it's kind of a weird feeling you know where we're all part of it in in every way around the world as well so you know when you see all the stuff with the sports and everything and and and I agree with you it's good at the peak like it has in some countries before we don't necessarily need a anti virus thing right off the bat but it's gonna have to peek at some point and whether he like you said it could be thirty days or more we don't know we don't know but that's basically what's going to have to happen and then we'll see how they implement the sports and the ranger point is know that it would resonate the way it did from coast to coast and in Alaska and Hawaii but trust me being on national radio at the time it it definitely did this though is you know it's just in so many ways so scary and you just hope that you know that a big sooner rather than later the time is a major factor here I mean nobody likes the bad news but everybody when they know they're going to face bad news you know at some point you get out of the dentist's chair right you know you finally made it you finally had to go you finally admitted that you went to the dentist he thought it was gonna sock maybe it did but eventually you get to come out of the chair you're not you don't go into the chair and then sit there for days or weeks or months not knowing when you're going to get out that's what this is like this is like going to the dentist and not knowing when you get to leave and how many drills is gonna bring out or are you just going to sit there so that's the problem a big part of the problem is with the waiting as Tom Petty would say Tom in Bergen county is next on the fan hi Tom nobody could kind of put a little damper on my yeah it's really sad because when we talk about March madness so basically can either went to the library did Gadda book but not a close in the library for a month bye while you're there as well we will be hit by the preoccupied icon so now I'm thinking about maybe going to empire if you know of the nineties but now I'm trying to think about it because because because she knows there is an ongoing because still utilizes city now I would as they say I would clearly call before I go I would agree with you that that makes sense a lot of things that make sense are taking a long time to come to fruition but most of us now see these dominoes falling as they did this afternoon when New York said a nobody more than five hundred let's let's have Broadway go dark the dominoes are falling schools are closing smaller and smaller gatherings are being discouraged or prohibited and that is just going to continue over your weekend you know there are parts of this that are predictable that part's predictable more and more and more things will close and you're right the casinos probably will close because that makes the most sense and they're generally not the cleanest places anyway and there's a lot of touching right I mean you you deal with the machines you deal with cards you're dealing with whatever it's not a hands off experience to go to a casino by any means Richard in Manhattan is next on the fan I Richard I wish to take the subway to get shut down that would surprise me I mean it wouldn't surprise me I don't know that they can keep them clean enough and I don't know you know I don't know that they're necessary in a blackout obviously when there's no power other closed down so it's not unprecedented I'm in a building yeah where they play bridge sessions morning afternoon and evening mostly all the people I'd say five hundred a day come and play bridge I was just talking to the dorm in my building and he says it hasn't slowed down not even a bit how do you explain that naive attendee Richard and these are all mostly retired people over sixty five they know what's going on and they're all next to each other in tight quarters small Manhattan you know what what do you think you would know how well you know those people there I don't know if it's just one more thing your movie man are you old movies to some extent I wouldn't call myself an expert and Robert Mitchum and Jean Christiansen and never saw all okay great movie if you get a chance to catch the name of it again angel said that's what I thought you said okay angel face while we're on it god knows we're gonna have time to watch movies we're gonna have time to watch movies more than we want so that's the way that goes maxim Nayak is next on the fan on Max Hey how are you thank god playing golf more there you go you know plug but spacious water grass you know I like it germs the germs of wall but not by me California California since Amir Kentucky bluegrass you know it's a combination you know not a great thing about that stuff is you can play you know thirty six on it in the afternoon and then get started with Jesus at night Caddyshack nineteen eighty Barger's measure hybrid kind of all kind of all kind of all yeah that's a little harsh a little harsh we think of my place tie it's really a mess it's awful yeah when I got a lot of stuff on order now they say I'm the assistant greenkeeper doesn't mean anything you know I can't get the credit you know it's a six year plan but a lot of people don't even know what this stuff is like change bugs right manganese they don't know what that stuff is let's see if you haven't watched Caddyshack you have no idea what I'm talking about and if you have your thinking back to.

"But I'll tell you what you great for the league the great the young stars are great for the league Lamar Jackson Luka I mean the these guys are great great for the influx of enthusiasm and electricity around these teams no doubt about it J. J. little Mack up next on the fan I J. J. Hey Chris I'm I'm not the biggest the college football fan awhile watch the big game in their court the rivalry games yeah and I will probably watch Ohio state Michigan since you know Jack Tatum Archie Griffin early seventy just all posters from seventy to two thousand probably like you know thirty is probably fifteen fifteen they probably even I'm someone's Mandalay twenty years it's probably like seventeen to twenty eighteen wives they I don't I don't see how all walking hold on much longer if if you cannot beat Ohio state their you know their athletically JJ not in the same I mean we talked about this yesterday they're not in the same stratosphere they don't have the players I mean they're they're just they're being beaten by better players over over over again in those years and that's why the upset hasn't happened JJ because because everyone's ready you know when you talk about these big games and someone will say well you know they're angry about what happened last year you know they're carrying a lot of baggage they want to prove that last year was X. Y. or Z. no fluke or a fluke or whatever let me tell you that doesn't enter into it when you get into these games if you go to Michigan or Ohio state in large part you're going to play in the game that's why you chose Michigan and Ohio state so you could play either Michigan or Ohio state he wanted to be a part of that that's the biggest recruiting tool each school has but for whatever reason Michigan has not gotten the players you know they they've gotten players to make themselves very good as usual and better than most what college football's weird I remember mark Richt getting fired in Georgia for going ten to every year you know when you get the M. two in college football you're just another team and that's just life it's too bad I mean I don't like is and especially now when everybody gets a bowl game anyway and we have a fourteen play also all the rest of the bulls are all the same to to most people that are under thirty anyway you know you look at all the bowls is basically the same the because now we have a championship we have a four team championship so you're either in the fourteen championship or you're just another team good team but Natalie team they're a good team Wisconsin good team Minnesota good team call a good team Alabama good team so it's tough it's tough right now from Michigan because they don't have the players they're not losing because a fluke and they're not you know there were ten point dog today so nobody thing and they were playing at home your ten point underdog at home to your rival the problem is not your coach unless you're blaming the coach for not recruiting well which that's fair to in a college game but you know if you're a ten point underdog at home in your rivalry game you got problems they got problems Thomas Illinois up next hi Thomas group yeah he in the process for finance my own question but your research team better than mine the point I'm trying to bring up is I was looking at the salary cap and I know it can be circumvented a little bit for instance I don't like the way Toronto Maple Leafs were able to purchase their contract for in return you get high draft picks you know they take a contract up to somebody's hand and then they get the I draft pick but last year it's my understanding that the single was blue won the championship what the point your highest play pay or last year Chris with only five seven million and that's not even forty years on the left yeah yeah yeah I mean my I resigned from last to first for them to yeah I I think my point is this I'd much rather have three seven million dollar players tend to ten million dollar or two twelve eleven or twelve million dollar players taken away nice talking all right yeah the look you know I think that that's often the case I think the Yankees are you know wishing that you know they hadn't gone where they went with Ellsbury just simply because because of the amount of space it takes and I don't have a cap but they have a self imposed gap stand is that way so that there was that way to Cheryl was that way a rod was that way you I manning is that way word you affected really limited in your ability to be complete by overpaying star players and football is a team game it's it's the ultimate team game I mean hockey is too obvious because everybody plays they roll over the lines on the defenseman so unlike the other sports you know pretty much everybody addresses outside of the backup goaltender gets on the ice and is therefore critical times when games are two one three two then there are no small shifts in an environment like that so yeah I mean I agree with you I think that that big salaries now are you know the Yankees Yankees are good example they could've gone Harper they could have gone Machado now they can go Gerrit Cole or Strasbourg we'll see if they do it but I don't think that they like to do it I mean I I think that they would much rather be balanced if they could much rather be balanced the giants by the way salary cap for next year is projected at seventy eight million the big reason for that will be Eli manning coming off the books so something look forward to their but again as we've learned in this environment it's how well Gelman and Joe Douglas spend that money not how much money they have same with the pics it's not how high the pick is it's how good a player you pick when it's your turn and that's to be determined for both of these guys eight o'clock update around the corner more of your phone calls too on the phone well then you would have never understood top hat or no hat on top the toughest part of every health it must have been doing it wrong.

"The rear. View mirror. You know, we're having a good time. Brian McCain and Matt Casey on the other side of the glass. Wayne coffee, noted author will join us this hour talk to him about his book on the sixty nine Mets and really interesting stuff that and many meta later in the program on the jets draft what to expect there. We finally get the draft day Yanks with their injuries trying to get over five hundred packs and as well tomorrow, they probably will get over five hundred but then a nine game road trip and a really really depleted team. Based on the injuries flexing got bombed today for the Mets, and they sent him down and the nets, of course, losing this afternoon in Brooklyn one twelve one eight so not great news with judge getting hurt. Yanks, you know, the answer back to five hundred but they've had a very easy schedule. And haven't been able to take advantage of it for a variety of reasons most notably the injuries, and as we know and as we've said so many times the season is head of them. And I could say that a month from now and probably two months from now saying exactly the same thing that the season is ahead of them regardless of how they play between now. And then they'll never I don't think they'll ever be bad enough to fall out of it before, you know, July whatever, and I certainly don't think they'll have cemented anything by July. So these games are fun to watch. And I enjoy watching them, but their meaning is up to interpretation for sure because whether you want to believe it or not. You can always look back on these games. But the odds are you won't. In other words. There's when they're sixty games remaining. That's so many games that opportunity will be there. Like, I'm getting ready to talk the wing cough. You know, waiting coffee among the things about that sixty nine season. That's so impressive. Is that the Mets went thirty eight eleven the closed that season thirty eight and eleven. Now, obviously that's an anomaly, but the point is it's possible. So. Awful lot of baseball to be played even two months from now there will be an awful lot of baseball to be played. And it's important to keep that in mind Thomas Illinois up next on the fan. Hi thomas. Hi, Chris can put think out. I gotta weigh in on this workout topic. It's a great topic. I'm surprised it's not many more. But I did want to people frustrated I think it's not mentioned very much because people don't know what to say, they're like the professionals trying to fix it. Nobody's able to fix. It. Guys are getting hurt all the time. Well, that was that was gonna be my point short on this one is the guy I followed. Everyone is different. When he does we search on backs. Chris he goes to a slaughterhouse and gets a hundred and fifty fine fund a pick because they're all exactly the same. And if he tells you to do ten dogs and you'll do twenty well, then you're not going to get better right now. The main thing I wanted to ask you about what I want to play the game with you on this. Okay. I really wanna know your reasoning on the difference seems to be different. You Paul the masters that they don't charge six dollars for water yet you seem to cast cast. I the NHL when they go six minutes out of time out in commercial. When did I say that? Why would I care about how long they without a commercial? What are what are you trying to say? Well, I I think there seems to be good while you always seem to be done on the NHL NHL because they don't they don't promote their stars number one. And number two number two. Although although Brian made a good point to me about the fact that Crosby has one a lot lately. And Ovechkin won last year. There seems to be a latte like like Brian James has never losing four nothing in a playoff series. But Crosby just did to an island or team. That is not great is good. But not great those things don't happen in other sports. Most of the time when you have great players they make a difference in the NHL, you're able to negate those great players to easily for me. That's what I don't like about it. It is a complete crap shoot. When you go to the playoffs. And if I'm in NHL fan, I think that's great that everybody has. To earn it. But on the other hand, it's very difficult to promote stars. When you don't need them the win. They don't matter in the postseason a lot of the time. Okay. Sorry. No. No, no. That's why I called them because it seemed to be a, well, you know, the NHL they're more of a competition and in entertainment sports. Oh, absolutely. They are okay. And that's better for the sports fan. I mean, it's better. But there's so many people who are fringe fans of the other sports who are not fringe fans of hockey because they don't know anybody, and there's no more Mariel amuse anymore. There's no four hundred goals in a season. There's no hundred point defensemen. You know, it's not rai- board, and Al MacInnis and Paul Coffey. Those days are gone. It's a much quieter competitive two one three two league. And it's harder to to jump on. That problem. We. Part of the reason we'd never embraced soccer. Not enough scoring not enough stars people. Excellent. Yeah. Excellent. Well, my I actually said that if you sit this you once before the third fourth point players are so good now that they can shut down two stars day after nine salute that they can get in the ring any bigger, right? The ranks of the saints is always been all right, man. All you go. That's good conversation. There's no doubt. You know, there's no doubt that. You know that? The rank is small for today's players, and you can you can look back and see easily enough the average size of the NHL player in one thousand nine hundred seventy five or eighty as compared to the average size of the NHL players today. And with the rink the same size. There should be. There should be a correlation with lower score. And there is and obviously the goal is so much more athletic now, so much more of a complete athlete than back in the day. Kevin montvale New Jersey next on the fan. I Kevin how you doing good? What's I get a little bit into the? The strengthening dishing injury. So and so forth every talking about the four major sports every sport shoot app strength and conditioning as part of their program, and they do yes, they won't saying is it was one call that said that, you know, baseball players are, you know, Doug doing too much and that's causing injury. Here's what one of the biggest problems is what one of the biggest problems are as far as injury prevention and strengthening conditioning, number one is obviously should be switched is in many cases, position specific and more importantly players to civic, and but professional leagues believe it or not are resistant to change, and they are behind the most modern and state of the art techniques that are available today. And and if they would embrace those rather than resist those there's always going to be injuries. There is no question. About that. But I think that would be less if they would embrace the state of the art techniques that are out there today that they are resisting. And are you are you involved in training? Legitimation of professional athletes in my family and very close to a lot of state of the art trainers conditioners, and people that are now working on. Better message for the cure of the cure or the quicker concussions and re reducing the symptoms in a much quicker method. I am part of that. And I'm beginning foundation that that is is is going to get involved with that. But I don't wanna get into me. I'm just talking about knowing professionalize the athletics. Like, I do a lot of these people are using methods. I don't wanna say are. But there'd be hind the time. Yeah. Thanksgiving, I appreciate the phone call I have questions about how much rest is really proper how how much time should they actually be off? And then the length of the workout when they do have it. What should that be like? And do they take enough time off and the other question? I have is. Let's talk about what kind of damage can be done. Before you get the advice at the major league level as a fifteen year old to twenty year old athlete. Who've maybe not getting the best advice. How much carryover is there from that lifestyle and work out too? When you become a professional athlete, I wonder about questions like that Wayne coffee around the corner, we've talked Mets baseball on.

"Jonathan to be back on the air with you. I had to miss quite some time because my wife passed away just over a month ago. But I missed this show. I missed everyone in Bristol. And not only am I pumped be back with my longtime partner Jonathan hood. But the comeback on NCWA semi-final Saturday in event that you and I have covered together for so many years and broadcast live from the final four like six or seven times to do that today and be here with you. My good friend is extra special. It's good to have you back. That's number one. It's good to be back in my beanbag chair because I've been in this upright chair in the driver's chair for about almost a year now. So it's good to be in a comfortable chair now on being bag chair this laying back here cheer number two. But you know, you are right. You know, the final four no matter who's in. It is always interesting intriguing. There's always storylines around the final four, and there's pedantry there are. But I think that this final four here is a little bit different than the ones. We've seen the past. Let's it's different. Sure. And I know the initial reaction from everyone last weekend was no there's no do zion's out. There's no North Carolina. There's none of the blue bloods, really like a Kansas. But you look at these four teams playing today, and in my opinion, every team has a compelling storyline attached to it. The first game coming up at six. Oh, nine PM eastern time from Minneapolis Auburn against Virginia. How great is that Bruce? Girl who has been at this for so long, right? There was the scandal. When he was the assistant coach at Isla the recruiting thing with Dion Thomas, Illinois. He had to go down to basically college basketball purgatory and coach like a division two team to a national championship. He got back into vision one he broke through a little bit with you w Milwaukee back in two thousand five got them to the Sweet Sixteen. He's at a lot of stops along the way, he's taking his shirt off on national television. He's done at all. But now he's in the final four into a guy. That's been a lifer. Like Bruce Pearl in a team that hasn't lost since like one Boston February twenty third. I'm sorry. Auburn wasn't a top four seat coming in. But man, that's very fun team to watch. And I can't wait to see him play this afternoon. Well in this situation for all burn David living by the three allot foreign forty five three pointers this season. That's the second most by any team in a season in division one history. And you're right. Who's Pearl is a terrific coach because of the resume you just laid out. But I think what impresses me most is that they were able to three blue bloods in Kentucky North Carolina in Kansas. That's still easy task. Because that all you are trying to get past the players with the scheme, but also trying to get through three terrific coaches. You think about those those three programs and Albro able to do, and I guess the most impressive win for them. Not just getting North Carolina. But getting Kentucky without a key key thing about that Viki not there. Do you love me? He's not he's not in the mix. Right. And what was so strange about that game is in the second half. They roll a KiKi out right in wheelchair when they have the lead. Usually it goes the other way. Hey, when you ration- roll out the player, but here he comes like Ironside here. It comes like Raymond Burr rolling out there in the wheelchair. And I'm like, I don't know this idea. I mean, how's this going to affect the team? And he's heard guys leg up there in the wheelchair. Not be a good idea. And Auburn they use that for fuel like. Yeah. Okay. Keys, not there. But you know, what we're going to keep rolling on. And they and they have been very impressive probably the most impressive team out of the four based on their resume. Let's see if Ryan that lack are executive producers on his game. If we hear some Drake in my feelings coming out of break next time out. We'll see or set him up, man. You're good at doing that. Or the Brier inside. I'll take that to the grave and Barry Mark real me over here in Rhode my back. Yes, forget some of the folds in my back here. Can't reach that in the tub. But I, but it's good to see that. Are that Ahlberg is in this mix here, even with Bruce Pearl? You mentioned some of the sketching this with Bruce Pearl over the years, but you know, one thing for sure we can coach let the record show that Dickerson hood many years ago when Bruce Pearl was working for ESPN how many nights did we spend on ESPN one thousand in Chicago stumping for Bruce Pearl to take any open job in college basketball. We were trying to give Bruce Pearl at northwestern for God's sakes. We were trying to remember. Yes, why cleanup on the north shore Chicago while he was banned for a year. The reason why even made a stop here that. Yes fans because he had to he had no choices. They couldn't. He could get a job. He was not allowed to get one. That's the reason why you've been stopped dead ESPN. But a great talker and great personality I've been to few at the bar with Bruce Pearl here, and there get some good these great stories in his team a great story. Great team great story Auburn against Virginia. And I look a lot of people thought for genu- was going to be here. But when you become the first ever number one see Jonathan to lose to a sixteen. I'm sorry that could be that could crush the site. The of program and Virginia did not let that happen with Tony Bennett. So if they would've went out early again this year that would have been big trouble. And I guarantee you as much as they said they weren't thinking about last year, and they weren't feeling the pressure. I bet they were. So for Bennett to get Virginia to this point after last year's. Support -ment that's a tremendous job for that entire program because of would've gone south early again this year who knows there could have been big changes at that school. That's true. Virginia's very interesting, and they may not be pleasing to the I I could say that because you gotta give them credit. They're here in the mix in the final four. But because of how strong the are defensively they can kind of wear down teams the Cavaliers have held eleven opponents to fewer than fifty points this season. And so you like keeping teams in the forties. You know, it's not up and down. How tractive is that you've been a credit because of the embarrassment from last year, and you know, by the way, Baltimore, Maryland, Baltimore County. That's the team that beat Virginia still chirping on social media still talking about. I love by the way. They're still talking about the the big the big victory that they had so but for Virginia kind of bowling ugly, like our guy Jim Ross would say the way that they play. But you know, what they hold teams down defensively and this'll be an interesting contrast in game number one. And especially after last year Tony Bennett said this week leading up to tonight's game that you can't overlook any teams in the final four. I think everybody who's made it to the final four is playing at a very high level. It just it's how it is same with a Sweet Sixteen to advance. You have to play extremely well. So each team, you know, auburn's one twelve and a row in each team. Here has had a win tough game. So it's high level, it's possession basketball. And I think the guys understand that. Yes. It's an honor. It's a great achievement to get to a final four to get to a Sweet Sixteen. Honestly, you know. That's what it's about your preparation and understanding what's in front of you. And obviously, you're not looking past anything you can't do that in this tournament that we did last year, but everyone's capable that's college basketball. Now, Auburn Virginia will be a good one the first semi final. Game in Minneapolis than Texas Tech. Michigan state Texas Tech has been building something under crispier Jonathan they were in elite eighteen last season. And now this year they get to the final four Chris beard hasn't been a head coach in college basketball for very long, but he has done a tremendous job at that program. The feeling from crispier boy what a bright personality, and and yuck. It up with the media. You know, Texas Tech credit though for what they were able to accomplish. I like that team allot we talk about defence with Virginia. What about Texas Tech, and what they're able to do so far this season to get to where they are taking on a veteran coach like Tom Izzo. I checked the calendar today and it says April sixth. Let's see January February is oh, and then is a light. Because here he is in the in the final four an opportunity go to the national championship game. This time of year as you start seeing the grass grow in a little bit. And you start seeing the trees grow think about is. Because this this time of year. Year. There's a question marks Michigan state coming into this season. Whether or not they were going to be in this position. But it's Tom Izzo. I think pool the mole the finish line to this point eight final four appearance for a Tom Izzo coached Michigan state team which begs the question which final four coach has the most pressure this.

"All right. We are rolling along with phone calls. This Sunday night. Laura Rubinsohn at ten as in Kingston right now on the fan, Ezra. Hey, chris. What's up? I've been a longtime pirates fan. And I'm just wondering if if see I've seen Jason rise up through the system and become their new young ace. And I'm wondering if you think that he could break out the season and win the sei-yung or am. I totally crazy. Think you're totally crazy. But I think you're you're also allowed to bet with your heart a little bit and be optimistic about. I mean, look look at the way the Mets, for example. Or and the met fan this radio station, which is why it's a good example. Or so energetic and excited about Matt Harvey. First off. But also the rest of them. There was just a tremendous. There was a tremendous feeling. Of. Optimism and just. You know, what was going to happen next? Talent is a guy that people are excited about and that as I said earlier that's the lifeblood of the game. But the National League's loaded with talent. I mean starting pitching National League's very good and. The greatness of teams is better in the American League, Houston, Boston the AKIs, but the National League has plenty of competition better competition. The American League. The American League is top-heavy so opportunity will be there. It's a strong division now while strong division. Thomas Illinois next on the fan. I thomas. So nice forth by you, pulling a number academics. Giants fan. Then number twenty years that was nice for care. Good way, go way going about this because we can't. The giant management. Managements who fifth round pick for man. He forget about his salary and the other thing that you could ask them giant fan. Can you see the teams getting slower? Let's Mark west quick because I don't I don't feel like getting any quicker. Hey faster than he was last year certainly the year before that this is absurd. I as you know, Thomas, and you know, I'm preaching to the choir. When I talked to you. I don't know that you could get anything back for Eli manning. I I can tell you this. You couldn't get anything back for Eli manning at his current price. I have no doubt in my mind that manning is untradeable as current price. If you wanted to get rid of Eli manning, you'd have to call them. Because there is no other way. There's no other way. No one's taken that salary. They're having enough problems. And I don't know that they'll be able to do it. Of getting rid of Olivier Vernon who will cost his next team fifteen point eight million this year. Which is less than Eli. But. You got to believe in the player, you're going to take a sixteen million dollar player. You're going to have to believe in the player. So. And no one's going to trade for that player. Because. You've kind of made it clear you don't want to pay him. So you're stuck with them. You're better off cutting him getting nothing back, and at least you're free the salary cap. But with Eli is callers have said, and I I somewhat agree. They haven't developed anyone. They're proud of behind him. So what are they gonna do? They have to have someone start..

A new report finds black still die of cancer at higher rates than other Americans. But the gap is, narrowing AP. Correspondent Ben Thomas reports the American Cancer Society says cancer deaths have dropped for all Americans, but the rates have fallen faster for black people than white thirty years ago. Black men had a forty seven percent higher cancer death rate than white men. That's now shrunk to nineteen percent. Meanwhile, black women have a cancer death rate. Just thirteen percent greater than white women. Experts say the main reason is that smoking rates have fallen more dramatically among black people over the past forty years that's paying off in fewer deaths. Now, another reason is more blacks have been getting cancer screenings. I'm Ben Thomas, Illinois could soon have the highest minimum wage in the midwest.

"Not realize that because we. Look, I'm not going to get overly philosophical at midnight on Tuesday morning, but because we do much more at home now. Internet allows that. And so does the DVR and the ability to. You know, whether it's Netflix or any other of the premium channels to get our entertainment at home, do our shopping at home to be at home. To work from home. When we can unify behind something and have a common thing to talk about other than the weather. We generally jump at that chance and everybody's into football. And everybody wants to talk about football, and everybody's paying attention. That's why I tell you that the controversy for all the negativity and all the negative things said about it. Is a very bright silver lining for the league. It's the opposite of apathy people care, and they may have negative things to say about the league. And as I mentioned last hour the dumbest thing I hear all about. This is the league has to do something league doesn't have to do anything their revenues are increasing. Everything's fine. Nothing sticks to them. Whether it's Deflategate spy gate. Brady's suspension Ray rice, Colin Kaepernick kneeling at the anthem. Adrian Peterson new name the controversy. Around this league, nothing has stopped the train. Not nothing is even. Created a ripple on the tracks the thing rides as smooth as it can possibly ride. And I can't tell you you, you all know it, you're the same as I am you run into the same people? How many people have said to you? They gotta do about Goodell. I got to do something about this officiating. It's ruining the game. Is it? What are you talking about ruining the game in what way is it ruining the game? Are you telling me you're not watching anymore because if you are you're a liar? You're still watching. And they'll throw us a bone here in some way, but they won't really mean it. Until revenue goes down. The changes will all be cosmetic. They'll all be minor. Thomas Illinois is next on the fan. Hi thomas. Hi, chris. Thank you. Thank you. Personally. I was going over some of your clips and your story about bad luck about the announcer. The ranger announcer position opened my eyes to things. So that really helped me out. Was a poll that took place yesterday. I was about ten plays of the patriots game. Then really what been trying to explain the egalite backwards and close off with a request. If you could put between fencing I see you on the schedule over the week on the shutdown. I find a lot of similarity between eagle eye and Trump supporters happy yesterday was he doing overtime late in the fourth quarter. And yeah, I don't know what down or distance wise like the capacity spoke through and Brady putting very nice shoulder. Sunni, shake, you know, he might have moved his feet a little bit. But the point is if he didn't have to waste to the sideline yards. The pass. I believe he did. But you guys for one and he didn't really have to the sideline. Okay. But I would just total up and protect themselves. You know, his. Street. Okay. Hung in there. Tried to make a play and refers to shutdown thing goes, I think that Schumer employees. There's no way to be negotiating with Trump. They need to be negotiating, but Coulter and Rush Limbaugh. Okay. Because. How do we get to the politics here? I don't even know how we transitioned over there. But we didn't stay long. So it's not all that. Yeah. Politics, fascinates me. Now, I'll I'll say about politics is when I hear every day or lately every couple of days someone else who wants to be president in twenty twenty. I'm thinking, wow. Like, I get it. Growing up being president is like the ultimate job or whatever. But the reality of being president today. That's what you want. That's what will make your life. Greater like, I'm announcing my candidate. Candidacy for president. Give it some thought. Now, maybe that's a little too hard hearted. And maybe recent events the way things have gone over the last whatever number of years have made me feel that way. But. The age of the internet, and social media, etc. And it's just an age of negativity because it's so easy to be negative. It's just a tougher job than it's ever been to be president. I think good luck to all who dare. Think that that's a gig. They want J Long Island up next on the fan. Hi, jay. Hi. Hi. When I talk about this that the words on one play. They would say that that that. There's no file on the same exact play. If someone asks does is they say that it is a a a a. Hey. I mean, I I watched guys hold people. Would they going up and nothing is called about five minutes later, the same guy does the same exact thing? Say they flag. Yeah. Isn't that? Crazy, jane? It's crazy. Look it is. Spiraling. It's going to continue to spiral because video beats people, and it always will. And it's only going to get worse because the video will be enhanced and the people will stay the same. So you're asking people to beat video, and it's physically impossible. But if they league will not admit that we as fans have a better view than the people they pay to officiate games. Then there's no chance of them changing. It can't be done by people better than it's done by video. And the greatest proof of that is simple people make calls, and then we go to video to confirm them. We don't have video making calls and then go down to the field to have people confirm them. The ultimate answer. In all the sports is video. The right now, we have a middleman in between. That is. The onfield on-court on ice official. Middleman is useless. And until they admit that we are where we are eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six Chris more till two on the fan. You know, the books,.
