"Me? We can see and hear you. Good. I don't know if that's good or bad. At a well you know, it's I say about radio voices, All right. When I look at this thing and February march, April may of last year, I think there was a little bit of doubt. Among some me included that this thing was going to be similar to 1918 or 1919. When you're on radio for about 18 to 20 hours a week. You have all the guest on there's all kind of conspiracy theories. Sometime in September, October. November is one. I said to penny to myself, I said, This might be the one that we see in the movies and the documentaries have been done about and so I took the next several months, and what I did was speak to some medical professionals that I respect. I think there's three groups of Americans generally that are reluctant today. Here we are, and first part of May to get vaccinate number one. His men We meant for some reason. Don't want to go see a doctor Denise. I think a lot of women do. I don't want to be sexist, which I am all the time, but But I'll say this. I think In essence, I'm resistant to going to a doctor. And so if you can have a Hamilton County program that talks to men I talked to Steven Reese about this and some others. They're simply a resistant to go see a doctor. The second group are those that shall we say are disconnected. There's large numbers of Americans living in Hamilton County. Maybe 10 or 20%. That, sadly, don't listen. The radio they don't watch television. They don't read the Enquirer. They're not watching you, Greg. Me. They're not watching anyone right now that 10 to 20% are disconnected, and that isn't a good or a bad thing. It's a it's factual. And so by having the mobile vans going into the community may be setting up the holy Grail going toe outside of a Kroger store, maybe go to a festival or an event outside of a mass on the West side. Say. Here we are. That would help. And there's a third group, the anti Vaxxers some whom I put on the air, and many I do not who simply believe it's a government conspiracy that somehow the didna the messenger RNA is being manipulated, and somehow they will be turned on at some point on all of us become zombies. And so those of the three categories that have to be Looked at when I made the decision in December to get vaccinated. I didn't rely upon thee my guest. I didn't rely upon segment. Dennison. I didn't rely upon other experts. What I said was call my doctor and I spoke to my pharmacist. I went to Dr Dean carry Aucas of the Christ Hospital. I have some other docks and I'm close to like Timothy Kremchek. In each of them said Willie Get it done. So if I'm gonna get my car fixed, I'm not gonna overrule the mechanic. When I go see my accountant. My accountant says you have to do this. I'm not going to say you know, al prosciutto. You're wrong. I'm not gonna do that. Each of us have to rely upon experts and so as a man who's naturally resistant to the vaccine, who heard all the conspiracy theories. Relied upon medical advice and I want to see my farm assistant Adrian Pharmacy, Wayne Morse and said Wayne didn't give any names, of course is I Can't tell you the number of people who have coming in here that are indeed trouble. I think about our mutual friend Pat Berry. Who, uh Contracted covert 19 years. Some underlying conditions is all of us have. And Pat Berry went through 2 to 3. Weeks of a living hell with a ventilator stuck down his throat dying in a horrible fashion. From that experience. I tell everyone that I can that when you live in the 21st century, take advantage of the things that make your life longer and more healthy, So I relied upon medical advice. I went to a pharmacist that I trusted. And I got in line really in December and January Naples, Florida that they were testing sites that Rhonda Sanders setup in which of the public store that had 500 vaccines. My wife and I said, Why don't we go there about seven or eight o'clock in the morning? It was gonna open at nine o'clock and in actuality over 5000 cars were lined up from the day before. Mainly that the folks in Florida where shall I say Jim Scott's age that they were older people and they were begging to get it. I can't imagine Now. Here we are in May, and now you walk up to a Kroger store with Rodney McMullen, the CEO in charge and you can simply go and buy your fruit in your berry and get some get some hamburger and get a shot. So from my perspective, I was doubtful. I was saying, Thomas, I did not believe for the first five or six months. I thought it might have been a government conspiracy theory. I thought this isn't the big one. We've gone through. So many of these In the past. We went through SARS. You went through a Bola. We went through 1957 went through 1968 went through all the other stuff, and I did not believe Until the fall when so many of friends that I had and associates and contracted it, so I would urge all great Americans to get the vaccine even if you're a man, even if you're disconnected. Even if you don't believe get this shot because long term you want to stay here as long as possible, So that's kind of my story. I relied upon medical advice and secondly, a pharmacist. You told me to get her done. And Denise, I got her done. Yeah, I'm glad. Thank you. Thank you. Well, let me ask you a quick question. So how did you do on how far out are you from the vaccine? I got my second shot. That was a Fizer around February, the 20th the people's judge. My wife got it with me. And to be honest, she went through two days of a terrible flu like symptoms. It got so bad on the second day I called Dr David Fisher of the Christ Hospital should just stick with it. And within 12 hours after that, she got fine. So don't go into this thing thinking it's like nothing. It is something there's about 5 to 10% of us ever reaction. And so the reaction and her case was bad. In my case, it was it was perfect, and it didn't have any impact at all. And I feel free now not to wear a mask. In many circumstances. I'm not wearing one. Now. Most people in our newsroom do not wear a mask because after all of us have now been vaccinated, and I pay attention to people like Jack crumbling Cromley despite the fact He's got the vaccine. He's still wearing a damn mask, which I don't understand to make some silly political statement, but nonetheless, most of us once you get the mask you're in good shape can proceed with life and that's the way they ought to be a benefit to getting the shot. Which is your return to normal. I look forward to the day when we go to the Great American ballpark. We can go out and do think, socially and otherwise with Children and do things to get back to normal life. Americans must act like Americans as proud Stallion's in the high ranges of Wyoming scratching at a pale blue sky. We got to get back to work. We got to get back to life. Willie. Without you. We would have not had that vision. So thank you for that on. Do you know it reminds me that we should thank all of the people that we've gotten vaccinated because.

"Like this says I'm ready to play OMG. Um yeah, And I just sort of got I just got goose bumps again. Have you been in ways that we just had longhorn legend Marty Akins on the show with us, and then it was to talk about Drew Brees, his nephew, which was very good. Yes, but he talked about Steve Starkey s. Oh, no. Now I can't even stand up that's playing the song therapy is that's native Sarkeesian. Had had a zoom with him. So that's you know, Sarkeesian doing all the right things. Listen, gotta have the former players. You gotta have the love night. It's you got to have the big money. You gotta have everybody on the same bill and listening. Yeah, I've brought up things that have gotten me juiced up about hiring of Steve on the mound, and you've kind of been like, Well, everybody's doing that I'm telling you like when, when Chuck Strong was hired. I had former players on my FM show on I asked him, you know, as Charlie brought you in. Are you doing anything that Team, and he said No, but we are here and ready and I mean, like some really big names from that championship. Sure, they said No. And then I feel when Tom was here, I feel like he made an attempt to do that. But I just there was so much waffling with the guy right sleeve so easy and got on a zoom call with hundreds Hundreds, and I think it's setting. The tone is in day one. I'm here. I respect what you've done. I need you guys and I want you guys to be a part of this history a part of this program. And not only is he saying the right things he's doing them, in. My opinion, as well, is like getting that staff of his together with that five star culture, and I am just as as drunk on the burnt orange Kool Aid. Is Marty Was there that interesting? What Marty said about coach roll and it was true because coach Rolls His players feared him when they played for him, and then when they graduated beat, it was really interesting because when Coach Royal died, some of his best friends and people who helped take care of coach role were hers former players because coach role Went from being their coach, Stern taskmaster to a dear, dear friend who would do anything for them, and they do anything for coach Royal. So I think that was very interesting. And Steve is doing all the right things to put the pieces together. I'm with Marty. There's no reason that Texas can't when a conference championship next year with what we saw from Casey Thompson and Hudson Card and be John, and that improved defense. I think there's no reason to believe the Texas cannot challenge Oklahoma for the conference championship next year. And you're already seeing some of those preseason top high top five Heisman without visions name right up there at the front, which I think Yes, and probably would have been even hired would have given him the rock a few more times last year. Exactly. The thing that came to about there's already been movement with with college football, you know, with his transfer portal. Uh, Elk. Oklahoma got a big get today. Former Tennessee offensive lineman, uh, by the name of Wayne Morse, who was a start. Tennessee is transferring to Oklahoma, so and they needed a tackle. So it's gonna be interesting, and I think it's gonna be between Texas and And Oklahoma. I think there's gonna be a fall off with I would state next year because their quarterback leaving. I know they got some players were staying, but it's going to be exciting next year, and I think Texas can can win as well going quickly. Well, and one last point on just, you know, fearing the coach that didn't come from like the fact I think it was more out of respect and like that's fear of failing for that coach. Not just like all this guy is such a jerk. Or, you know, you know, in a negative sense, and you know, Yeah, we saw our former coach Tom Herman getting you know crowds, surfers first time. And then two weeks later, you were hearing rumblings that the locker room probably wouldn't have lifted him up if his life depended on it, You know? Yeah, I think it's the it's the culture of that. And that's that's what Marty Akins was talking about, like with a savings or a Darrell Royal. It wasn't that's not AH, week by week thing, you know, when you step foot in that locker room that that's the way it's gonna be throughout your time there, right And and let's be honest Texas his taxes. Oklahoma's Oklahoma. All the top schools that recruit well should have people in place, because if someone does screw up someone plays badly, it shouldn't be an entitled situation. Just because you're a five star recruit. You continue to fumble or missus, I missed. You're not going to play. You know what I mean? You've got there people behind you, and I think that that mentality might have been lacking. With Tom Herman and Tom Herman would drive us both to drink when they would do that running back by committee with which made no sense. Yes, but especially old disclosure. I was drinking regardless of that. Well, yeah, but especially when we saw Bichon late. And even though Texas crush Colorado in the Alamo, Bo, it was driving me crazy. Bichon was great. He was was not in the game, and it's just sometimes. Tom Herman's offensive schemes did not make any sense to me. None. None whatsoever. Well, former Longhorn Marty Akins got us all pumped for that Steve Sarkeesian higher but also had some great words about Drew Brees and where he kind of sits in the history of greatness in this game, if that was The last time we saw Drew Brees, man shot out in high five toe Austin native there, he we're not going to see him this weekend, though, Ed, the conference championships are now lined up. You got the Tampa Bay bucks traveling to Green Bay? Are you ready for this? It just seems like Brady's got to keep going through goats to get to the Super Bowl again. It doesn't in Tampa Bay's an underdog again Green base favored by 3.5 points at Lambeau Field, and I think that's very fair. Very fair because the way Aaron Rodgers has been playing the Buccaneers Packer's gonna be a 205 kickoff next Sunday. Oh, great. Tom Brady is two on one versus Aaron Rodgers, including a 38 to 10 win. In week six. So that early kitsch favors open Brady. Right. We've We've done the science on that. And when he starts late this season, hey, doesn't play as well. So I mean, Uh, wow. I mean, I know we'll delve into that when Jason's back and we'll make our picks and everything. What do you most excited to see Brady verse Rogers or did I just say it right there? I think you said, I think that's it. Brady versus Aaron Rodgers and what what they meant to the game. And I think what they mean to the game and at the level they're playing at especially Aaron Rodgers. But to see Tom Brady out there and see Gronk out there and limit for nets, playing well on offense in my cabin is a former Aggie wide receiver. Listen, They got the weapons, too. It's not all about Aaron Rodgers and that offense on on on Sunday and saying that we saw what the Tampa Bay defense did the Drew Brees last last evening how they were swarming how they made the timely interceptions. They created the fumble after reception. This is a really good Tampa Bay defense. And these you're too good coaches. Bruce Arians, the older guy for Tampa Bay versus Mat on the floor from from Green Bay. It's gonna be a terrific, terrific game. We'll rip the game. I can't wait till later in the week when you give us a weather update as well as what it's supposed to be up there and I see a Lambo. Give it to you right now. Let me fire up. I'll give it to you later. Give it to us later because you know there's there's another conference championship. You know what would people have expected the bills to be there? I know that. Each were probably penciled in there, but bills now have to go to Casey for that game. Will we see Patrick Mahomes on the field? I think we will before I do that..
