"How are you this morning? Good how you doing. You know actually I'll start with this. I'm doing fine. I've never been a watch game. Talk About Game Guy. That's not really my show. I can do that and I think most guys can do it. I do broad topics. So for me. My radio numbers are up. My digital's up my podcast up. Tuesday Wednesday might TV ratings were up from last year, and there's no games, so it hasn't affected me I see ESPN's numbers in some shows down twenty thirty forty percents, not a shot, but I think they have different kinds of shows so for me. It's not been that big of a deal yet. That's obviously a huge traumatic situation for America. But when you listen, that's what you do for a living. Do you think some shows are built? More for this sort of. Stoppage and some aren't. Absolutely and it really is I think it'd be talked to sports radio host? They'll tell you if the men from the boys moment right anybody as you say can do. We watched the big NBA playoff game last night. Let's talk about, but there's another tier of sports host who can say I can tell stories I can be entertaining I don't need those raw materials. To do a good show. And at a time like this where you don't have the raw materials, you just got to be a great entertainer, right? And it really does separate I think certain tiers of sports talk people. You can probably say writers to from others. They really yeah. There's no question. Some people are more comfortable telling stories. I mean that's one of my favourite announcers of all time is Vin scully. I can remember you know listening to Vince Gully in my life, and a ball would get on the field, or to have a two or three minute delay in Vince Gully could just tell unbelievable stories. A lot of guys are more mechanical that do play by play. They're not personalities, but a Harry carrier Vin scully there storyteller who just do play by play now there is The Paul Finebaum was talking about the article. You wrote for the ringer that you know he's uncomfortable. Is there a balanced to you? How much if you were a program director? Do you believe that we should discuss the virus and its impact to a certain level? So I think it completely depends on the host and I don't think there's exactly a right way to do this finebaum idea over there pianist. My entire show is going to be about the corona virus to some extent I'll have John Calipari on, but we're not gonNA. Talk about basketball. We're GONNA talk about how this affected. His Life I was GonNa Affect Sports. Et Cetera et CETERA. There is another type of sports host I. Think who says you know what America wants right now. They want Joe Borough they want to they want. Should Miami Trade five number? One takes to get the number one overall pick pure escapism. I'm guessing that you and a lot of people probably fall somewhere in the middle of that spectrum where you say. I cannot pretend the coronavirus is happening right now, but people are tuning in here at least partly because they want to hear sports, and they wanna hear something else. I will give this alternative. Which I think is fascinating about sports radio. There is a possibility here and I've I've heard you do it on your show over these last few weeks where it's not that we're just talking about corona virus were almost. Almost giving people an alternative to CNN and Fox News in a different way to consume it right, it's filtered through different mind If you have callers, they're expressing kind of different kind of fear that maybe you hear on Andrew Cuomo every night or our..

"It's a good show. Well, now, you're on the Braga Rier, which I mean, we we have been on Brock Meyer since the beginning. And it's one of those shows, you know, being on IFC, it's a little bit unorthodox. And and I and sometimes people are a little, you know, they don't they're not used to a new channel. And I remember saying you have to go watch the show if you like bra if you like baseball if you like comedy any of it you have to go watch. That really nasty nasty. Yes. Let it fly. Okay. You got to understand the way that I knew Hank doing this is I've I've known Hank for many, many years a very dear. Dear friend, many years. We play poker together we still play. Well, he is in a higher. Simpson's money. Have you ever walked by a payphone or like, you probably haven't? But the old days, you would go by payphone, and you would reach it and see if there was a quarter there whenever Hank stops by payphone. And does that there's a quarter? Being on this. I go that he goes what? Another one. Anyway. So he used he does. Know, he's such a phenomenal mimic a phenomenal improvisatio- remind because if he gets into that character, you know, he'll he'll go for an hour, and he was doing this character and he actually used to do it at lunchtime with friends of ours. And they and I can't do it. But they would be doing Vince gully at lunch. Really? That's what they would be doing at then they would go what if Vince gully said this about hookers scholars of is about anal sex. Got a got raunchy years went by. And he he would continue doing this character. And somebody sawn said there's something really good in that there's a movie in this. And then it actually tried to become a movie didn't and he became a TV show. And I am astounded at the longevity of it. Because how do you keep it? What is an essence a joke humane, and he did it? He makes it humane than that. There's emotion and that you care about them while all the time what we're laughing at right? The ridiculous ridiculousness of this of the humor, and and the baseness of it and yet the stories continue. It's astounding that he can do that. It is a he he mentioned that with us where he said he liked to make the joke that you know. Like, you said like talk about anal. But then interrupting with like n just outside three into the that is the whole show off that just like how funny it is to have. But basically interrupt stories with account enter take that and be able to stretch it into how many episodes. Yeah. But but on the opposite side of giving you the count is going through a horrible divorce. Right. Very Harry Connick about I'm going through horrible. And it just cracks me up to cast is unbelievable to Pete has been great. And now yourself J K Simmons Martha Clinton added on. So I feel like the lavender, it's brilliant. I it's, you know, hit or cast now, it's it's not some little, you know, little indie project anymore. Give us very little money. So why would we want to come on and say, hey itself tests with this paycheck? Proud to be on it and the killer is and ankle kill me for saying. He made me audition. Did he fucker? Wow. And you guys you go way back. It sounds like right way. Back holy shit. So what do you say? I would've said fuck you. If you if this guy made me audition, presenting I would legitimately not do it. I would say like not only am I not doing it. Our friendship is focusing over. I know. With you.

"Feels like forever ago that we crowned a new champion major league baseball, and October is is glorious for the world theory that everything that leads up till we love October. But here we are about to start a new season earlier this year, again, this is something new that major league baseball done. Now a couple of years in a row pushing up the start of the season. And then giving the players more time off around the all star break in stretching out the schedules just a tad. And so that means in various parts of the country, it's cold, and you could be cold if you attend day game on opening day, especially if it's not a day, though. A lot of them are we just kind of cool. I love that about major league baseball as they they give you a chance to play hooky from work. They give you a chance to get out of school. In fact, there's only one game. This is just one game that starts at seven o'clock eastern time, the whole rest of the schedule will be done by that will at least be nearly done by then there are. Few games that start in the four o'clock eastern time hour, but even if you think about this this one game, which is the Red Sox at the Mariners. It starts four o'clock Seattle time, which is awesome. So we're talking about day games all around that is one of my favorite parts of opening day. I have a few items on my baseball bucket list. I don't know that I've ever shared this with you guys going to Wrigley field was on my baseball bucket list. Vince gully meeting Vince gully and having an opportunity to interact with Hemi so kind for whatever one says when you do meet him. He spends time to to talk to you to ask you about yourself. I don't know that that will ever happen. But having the chance to to listen through theories XM actually to his last two years as a member of the dodgers broadcast team that was a special treat for me because we knew the end was coming in. So I I made sure that I listened and listened and listened in just soaked it all in so meeting Vince gully is on the baseball bucket list. Get may never happen going to Wrigley field was they did that a couple of years ago. And it was as amazing as it sounds. I still have a few items on my baseball bucket list parks, where I wanna go. I've never been to Dodger Stadium, and I really want to get out there to shop as ravine for a game. But you know, what health is on my baseball bucket list? It's not throwing out the first pitch believe it or not a lot of people would have that as as their baseball bucket list item. Mine is being a member of the tarp crew. I want to help roll out a tarp. And then pull up tarp. But the rolling out part to me would be awesome. Don't you love when people get trapped underneath there. Okay. Maybe it's just me. I find that highly amusing I don't want anyone to get hurt. But I think it's funny when the guys are running running running running running, and then one of them trips and doubting goes in the tarp covers them up. They do go get him, of course, no man left behind. But the tarp crew to me would be awesome in the pouring down rain. And you're all of a sudden there's this deluge and you have a chance to be to race against time and race against the rain and pull the tarp out. That is to me that looks awesome. I did it once at a tennis stadium. So I had the opportunity to this was a grass court stadium. And so I had the opportunity to join the guys out there. And at the time I was wearing wearing a skirt and sandals are a sundress and sandals. Just flipped off the sandals and got out there and ran in my bare feet and was part of the tarp crew.

Meaning where you can share a whole lot more private private information. Okay. Okay. I get it Vern. You know, what I've always this is really cool because I've always wanted to ask this question to to Santa clauses. And I've never really had the opportunity because usually when I'm there, I have three kids. So you can't ask this question in front of the kids. Does it ever get incredibly insanely annoying to be sitting there for long hours and having little kids sit on you? Absolutely. Not okay. It is. Enjoyable rewarding that anybody could ever do what what is the strangest thing that a kid has ever asked you for. That's kind of a loaded question. Well, no, honestly or put put any word on it you want but most surprising thing or just. Yeah. There's nothing surprises me anymore. The doing this for a long time. And you know, the biggest thing is they want something that is just absolutely unrealistic. Right. And I have to convince them that that it's just not gonna happen. Oh, really? So you'll you'll go there with kids and you'll let him know like kid. That's why we can't do that at the North Pole because. Correct. I have a special thing that I do with parents in it kind of through the eye contact and a little wink and a little yes. And a little no that that is just not going to happen. So they will ask for something that is very unrealistic. And I always have to come up with the can't do that. What would be your next choice? And they will go from an absolute high. Well, if I can't have the new I ten max. Okay. Burn burn. If they're still sitting on your lap. They should not be asking for an iphone that that means that kid is too old. I kinda draw based on that one. You've got a perfect Santa voice. And and now I wanna like do you have do you have a real beard or do you put on a beard? I have a real beard. I like you said I am part of the international brotherhood of real bearded channels. Okay. And we are available.

Do you do? Okay. I get taken care of. I I do very well at it. But it it's all about it's all about sending a message. And the biggest message that I could send it to whoever may be listening is.

Run was the dodgers came all the way back to beat Oakland. And and want to win in that series and five it didn't happen for the mud Ville nine and night in Los Angeles, a strike out. The ball game is over the brewers. Now have a two one series lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NFC they win tonight by account afford. And nothing don't forget about game four that'll be a must win game for me with the dodgers. They lose game for they're losing the series. They're done the brewers reestablished control tonight. Can't wait to see exactly what the dodgers are going to do about that. And don't forget about the road to the World Series. It goes through ESPN radio. Catch all the postseason action. Presented by autozone. On ESPN radio. ESPN radio dot com as well as the ESPN app. It is now a final the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Los Angeles Dodgers four to nothing. They now have a two one series lead game for tomorrow night. I pitch nine oh nine eastern time on ESPN radio and ESPN app. I'm Freddie Coleman on Freddie and Fitz. Simons the Green Bay Packers are so team. Let's call it as it is. We have a great quarterback and Aaron Rodgers, but they are. So so football team. I'm going to take you back the Thursday night. The Philadelphia Eagles could have been in that so-so team mode playing the New York Giants division game. And I said if you're a team has any kind of aspiration so win your division to get back to the playoffs. You don't let a team with one win. Even though they're playing at home think they have a chance to win that ballgame you blink your eyes. It was thirty one six Philadelphia. They ran away and hid from the New York Giants. The Green Bay Packers are showing the be a so-so team with a great quarterback. And nobody should be surprised San Francisco leading the Green Bay Packers right now. Thirty two twenty three with two fourteen to play in a game. Great tweet by my buddy, Greg Rosenthal. Who said about this game? It feels like America's soon. This game was going to be bad. And it is decidedly not bad. He's completely completely right on that. One many people heard forty Niners. Green Bay Packers. I'm going to bed early. I'm not watching this and ESPN. I'm not going to be bothered. Don't even ask me to watch this game. Even though it is Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers. And yet the Green Bay Packers down by seven. And this is what happens when you're so-so team and you play team. That's not any good. That team is not any good. We'll keep you in the football game. The forty Niners have plenty of opportunities to grow by more than seven points. But because they're not a good football team. They're they're bad football team. This is not news to you. But they have a seven point lead over Green Bay with two minutes to play in the fourth quarter in Green Bay is threatening eighteen Green Bay because there's so so and they have played like it. They're not going to run away and hide from any team. And here's how important it is for the Green Bay Packers to win this game. Not only they lose tonight. They'll be two three and one. But here are the next five games. Rams patriots. Dolphins seattle. Minnesota. Yeah. Oh, Travis up produces one win for green to lose a night. Who's that going to be against then who's going to be against that? I hear dolphins in their dolphins are not bad, man. Yeah. But that I'm just saying there's that's the only one that I can say they can win the other ones. I don't know. I don't know that that could be on fire stretch. That's what I'm saying. That is one. Yeah. If anything maybe the Vikings they could get that win because the visual opponent play. Well, because divisional teams you think they're stopping at them failing in those boys. They tied the first time they met in Green Bay. Facts are facts. Chavez rock old facts are facts. They're only ties with Minnesota on the road facts of at home facts are facts. They lose tonight. I tell you what why don't be surprised to going five because you wonder how many guys want to believe and how many guys will still be beat up because the happens the Green Bay every year. If you're a team that has any any delusions or any aspirations of doing something special? You don't get your head handed to you a little bit thirty to twenty three by one win team. You don't allow San Francisco forty nine football team. Would they backup quarterback and CJ Beathard who's fifteen or twenty for two hundred thirty eight yards two touchdowns. You do not let ROY hime most art. Yes. That remote start the pride of Daytona Beach Florida in its fourth season out of Purdue. You don't let that guy all of a sudden punt your defense we have to one hundred yards rushing. And you might find a way to come marquees Goodwin. Pretty good receiver, but he has doubted up against Green Bay. At least they've been able to double team him in the second half. Because the first avenue four cats is a buck twenty six and four and two touchdowns. And he did one of the best celebrations this year. He did the whole long jump fantastic. Seems that look at the Rams the Rams played the Broncos. They knew it was going to be tough. They know let the Broncos believe for one second. They're going to win that game. Look at the chargers. Play the Cleveland Browns and beat the eyeballs out of them. When people dot Cleveland's gonna win that football game. If you are a team that has a chance or you believe you have a chance you allow one to four team on your home field to be about seven points with two minutes to play. We'll keep an eye on that game Packers right now facing a third down to six they had the ball. The San Francisco forty nine hundred sixteen yard line..
