He's five point seven beginning of life and love. Now please wait till I'm 95 point seven day. They got a welcome back to the programmer total what you're gonna be live locally or not 57 again for another hour. The most Hannity fox sports for the rest of the night. Bob nightingale all we need to move on my. Move them up move them out. Now 615 so about fifteen minutes from now lines are open to blame on 579570. 888957. And 9570 pence got to sell stock complex land on 57 and five. Everything I'm talking facet of that commercially now and at the end. They usually as fast like challenged and refers resent Oscar acceptance along with. Eventually do anything in court when that we told you. That the airbags would go off went right here. Like playing helter skelter on backwards. So the World Baseball Classic. If we didn't know the USA. In dramatic fashion has now advanced. Japan in the Netherlands authority in the San means. From their region in Asia. And other loans as an Asian India currently. Trying to between Macau and Singapore the Netherlands. And the USA. And Puerto Rico. And I I just think it's fantastic I love the World Baseball Classic I have since it started. The all the players haven't embraced the ad Mike Trout is still too good for a Bryce Harper and others the I don't if you if you don't like it out of London to know the reason why. If you say. It's just not the same as spring training if they replaced spring training I'd be totally with you. You still get not seen a million spring training games. Tom I also. Love anything what that puts an American flag on it I don't like golf but the Ryder Cup now I'm watching because old glory is on the tangles. Think watching at that point. But the whole thing about all we got ramp up too early. And we weren't ready you're asking baseball players to play baseball is what your daily. And if you think you got wrapped up too early you'll every four years. How much you start a week early that. That's like every year I understand that in the Caribbean some red tape and bureaucracy is not on rails. But you always have players their piece hasn't come through yet every year. There's Lisa how much he'll play for next year's spring training visa and well. I mean seriously do it now. So we can get it and why the whole thing about all everybody's gonna get hurt like they're like people don't get hurt in regular spring training games. It's every four years now I love the World Cup. I love the whole club vs country thing. If you think about. The. Brandon Crawford I don't usually get to root for him. I get to reform now he's on my team if you have USA on on your shirt you're on my eighteenth. And that's the whole club vs country thing that you get a lot in the end the in the World Cup. Or just any international game in national tournament. Whether it's global limited Dora circle America. I gold com World Cup European championships. Are called to freak. An African Cup of Nations if you like. It's all great and you have guys who play on teams that you hate. I hate Chelsea and arsenal McConnell fan but I root for those guys on their plan for England. It's fun. Om and as I said. The if you don't care that's fine I'm knock us out I've never been an evangelist for any sport. I couldn't care less that five talk a stranger into liking or heating anything and it's up to you whatever you know why am I gonna change your mind anyway. But for me it's just five billion times more interesting than spring training and I love spring train. I really do. But if you go to spring training game and their endless. Their five hours long and that's mostly because the guys who really matter are usually out. After two ABs. Starting pitchers unless you get to the very in the spring training that never gonna go more than five inning. You know it's just I and I understand their multi million dollar investments. And you don't want to screw with it a lot of it is just mental. You know I dog he's not in our camp anymore. You know I audio branding Crawford he's he's screwing up this whole season. He's an all star gold Glover. He really think. Because he's not under the tutelage of the giants' coaching staff right now that he's not going to be ready for opening day it's ludicrous. It's insane. And plus I love the fact that finally we as murky and might actually have a chance to win which is not our birthright. You gotta actually. Play and that's the whole thing about spreading the religion of baseball's they were trying to do when they started this. Why not get that oh world competition like this. And believe me it's gonna have growing pains. Wind chills through May. A Frenchman who by the way got the quade guerra in World War I for left crawls. When he became president of the brand new. Federation into an awful bustle socio fifa. He decided dozen 1904. You thought why don't we get them. Competition between all the countries back then remembers soccer was an amateur sport there's not as a singer as professionals the first sport that the first international ever was in 1980 as England vs Scott. And remember those aren't even Sovereign States according to the United Nations. There are more members of fever than the United Nations because. Now you have Great Britain as a country in the Olympics but as far as people is concerned it's NORTHERN IRELAND Wales England and Decker Britain that's why England doesn't even have a National Anthem. They play god save the queen which is the UK national on them but I digress. You have these. The schedules are made trying to get this thing to go on and before that it was really just the Olympics as an amateur competition. And herb lying. Had won two gold medals in a row so we said wanna we haven't Uruguay and almost all the European countries. Only two signed on and then they got seven finally to go. But like England Germany. Then like now were dead first the vault them back then you have to get on a steam liner. And you're gonna eat happy Joan kroc cockroaches the hallway there I don't know about that and but still. To get people honest on a steamer in 1930 was have been hard it had a growing bank. The first World Cup game. Ever play there were two simultaneously. And the USA played in one of those. Now I even in 1950. Way and USA beats that I am. England and Belo horror as homes on the allegations goal there was only one member of the media there. Of Chris Barnes and and bars dad was on that team. There's a guy from the Saint Louis. Saint Louis newspaper that was that and then one nothing in England and he got back to them they thought it was ten nothing. So it's gonna have some growing pains by the way we missed the next forty years of World Cup. And that kind of sucks under for my heritage or for England and Germany and Dina Mata got ball. It's gonna have some growing pains but I think finally. It's starting to catch. And the players don't kind of feel like college so what everything adds underwear USA but when it's over it's cool go back to the cactus league and grapefruit league. They were they wanna win now. That Eric Hosmer home run against Venezuelan. And Omar Vizquel the manager of Venezuela discipline his head down. It's just it's just drama it's fun it's exciting and I feel like as though the country that invented the game we should. Be at least in the final four or Chara we are now that's only happened once before. I mean even the Netherlands which is mostly from the Dutch ABC's in the Caribbean. Even the Netherlands. Has a fourth place finish. In their history the last three. WBZ's I want to games that AT&T park last time. A fantastic gamma sir I think that the confetti is still coming down that they shot off after that game. But I'm not gonna say that if you don't the abuse BC you hate fine and you like cold toilet seats or anything a man in Seoul if you don't YED you don't like. I just would like to know why. Because the whole thing about how you get wrapped up too soon that's just such a weak excuse. Are you a little child. Your professional baseball player. What branding Crawford well you hit those ground balls at me to heart. I'm not used to that at this point he would never say that. Include efforts at that. Yeah actually wasn't really hidden in giants camp and any guy would genius and he's been raking. I just you know I just think that. This is the fourth time now. And I think it's finally starting to catch a little bit but it's still it irk me four years ago when the USA was planned. That's in Phoenix. And Mike Trout was sitting there are Vernon Wells is angels team at the time and there are just smile and eating popcorn like oh look at this sideshow. And he still not into it. But that's fine I mean arguably our best player and there's no Bryce Harper and on and playing her shot that's fine. They got Danny Duffy starting in game last time around those allied Ryan vols song starting in game. It's just I don't know I I hate excuses from from pro athletes on anything. You know for me. When it comes to college negligible moral victory is like I talked about my Saint Mary's gaels last night I didn't think they would win one game they beat VCU. Even though they are as seven NBC was at ten. Traditionally that's when Saint Mary's usually loses when they play a team from a real conference like that not as slow me down WCC type of game I was proud of them and then against Arizona they're up by ten in the first half and are mine and myself that there are up against. Up by sixteen against Clemson was that in 89. Up in Boise and and Clemson put in their suspended not suspend anymore. Up player Elden Campbell in the second half. So I knew Arizona would probably win. But I was proud of them. They are a mid major and are playing a basketball. Powerhouse and Arizona. And for 38 of the forty minutes they were absolutely in that game it was anybody's game. Some problem if they were the pros no excuses you win or you lose I don't wanna hear about it. I don't wanna hear about it it's the same thing with travel all the warriors have to go on and they they flew back to Milwaukee I'll shut up just deal audit. Nobody nobody wants to hear it if anything out there makes excuses. All the warriors travel more than anybody else woman go to some mouse if you don't like. I just I hate making excuses for professional athletes they're grown men. Now they grown men their world class athletes and they should be physically tougher than you and me they should be. And sell by that they really should be mentally tougher Ian paid a lot of money for that toughness both mental and physical. So for the WBZ and to have people just detracts from it saying it just ruins everything. I would just like to know why why you think that because I I haven't heard one good reason yet. I don't buy the thing that guys get hurt Ian Desmond broke his hand this year was in the WBZ and now. What if he broke his hand plan for the united state dog urine of the tournament. God get rid of it. Now you wouldn't say that when you. And I I love going to spring training as the first year I haven't gone in in years. I've been banned now. It's just a good chance ago. I've been busy and so and amend. And now I can tell you that those those games are fun. Why it's you know you think that it's a carnival atmosphere during the regular season of people not paying attention that's that's what it is enough. It's very pretty but that's why it's so far and it's so laid back. And you're supposed to have most of the time you know the warm weather there in the cactus league. Where I go. I just think about having a game that that's actually gonna matter. I knew I loved that. And dumb anyway if allowed to hear from you if you wanna get in trouble and I'm 57 and 9570. And we're waiting on Bob nightingale right now we haven't we now Bob nightingale Bob. Of course with the USA today and MLB network. I love the WBZ I think it's so exciting I don't think it ruined spring training and I know you've been watching it all what's your take on that. That some blasts and it won't waste from spreading your bluntly all star game. I'm not in itself vote he'd gain ulcers game. But it Syria it's on the upper the struggle much in those seats being everything. Here's your environment they're particularly. Elections in the year ago not run Nolan while Miami you know it's a well Cuba. Well Rico and you know Dominican Republic. If it was unbelievable aperture means it's that it never in my life in the thirty years they're off. And I you know I I think about teams are dealing get even further but you look at Israel. And I know Ryan the Hardaway said it was a life changing experience. For him man and the two upsets and they were kind of a Cinderella story. There in the beginning I mean we're not we're not looking at them now but there was drama. Literally. All over the globe. Autopilot and even now your. Grandma. Knew that it was about eight no. Latin America and Japan reacted in Italy and they are giants you vote in Italy you'll bear bam there. Cheer him. It in the world errant bombs in that little birds ratings week and it has been here at that means some parts of the unity. In the country. Do you think that a lot of people that they exist today in the coaching staffs and in the front offices. It's just worries them that they are multimillion. Dollar. Investments. Are actually in somebody else's hands and they're gonna get heard and not on their watch because for me asking baseball players to play baseball. Isn't any more dangerous than having them in can't be that gets the control issue. Now I am Margaret and with complete in all. I mean obviously in the car lot lower them on the WBZ. Circuit now they got it like it is and everything else. You're at now. In Iowa in all of what they've got it there that asks. Yeah you're the giants and their vote they'll all on their neck out for another another album art bullet that you know it's and it. Let me. It prepares you allow one then here are writing. You are so am I opened fire. Well it's very early in runs ago or what it here. No doubt about it and I you know a few years ago when the giants miss the playoffs. A lot of giants fans pointed to the fact that they had too many guys in the WBZ they got and dubbed too quick to me it was just the scapegoat kind of thing. Yeah I don't like Obama. He is in Europe bear on Joseph man. Out at the apartment searching. You know mark and yelled back that you are the first year he that we hear more players that term and then anybody. Believe it egging them you know the yeah you know. You can't make it used there and I noted that they have a more accurately a pitcher and love their country. And spa and and and they. You know ideally it that could be me aura. Or you release it's great writing here Alec they won 100. I actually agree theory toe and I personally and Bob nine Gallup USA today MLB network talking about. On the local teams let's start with the green and gold we are home of the days here. Sonny gray once again is not going to be the opening day starter last time I was because of the stomach flu this time he's got a an injury when you look at the young rotation. The gays obviously are not built for the playoffs this year they won one game more laughter than they did before that but it Vegas they have the win total around 66 and a half. I think they get at least get to this seventeen maybe still last place but still I think they're gonna be at least five game is better. Did you see them as a team what some of the young talent coming through and these young pitchers to three years away and. Well it didn't agree again I'll make that he would. Straight complete back fired on an adult and played down. The worst sort of baseball history. You know it's early yet we're down at the Russell. That ran straight out of restraint and just went back on Saturday at 800 number now. Yeah I mean you know it's either way outline. In the yeah that the Reagan. So it meanwhile other quality recover in her competitor. That your circus spent some money we get appreciated wanna come there and nobody went to peddle. A look at it. Well Bob not only that but the you know this for years leave the ownership of the a's has said we hated here we wanna go to San Jose we don't like the building now it's a completely. Different flavor they have a new president. A new face of the same ownership but now they've embraced Oakland. There what's it like as a national writer Tom no longer hear all the whining. Yeah I mean eight ball mark you know that they're you know. That's very obvious that spent money. I guess you they went ports and a complete back part that they had the tendency in Iowa game one out. Yeah maybe everything change this. But he. And now but well you know lock stock Abner and Russell and interpret shortstop. New York you've got real leaking would ask Russell in the and now than that in your field. Too dark bit in artful. And you know and announced on. Are you appear small market in UK airport is like. Yeah I don't believe me we can think they think about that all the time got more questions for. Bob nightingale let's switch over to the the west side of the bay. The giants as you mentioned Milan and now that was their one weakness last year is they did not have that closer. In the playoffs though and it do you still see them as a a contender once again. Idea I think it would isn't it like it up a lot. You know like he should not have a well I'm well there again more expert now for a tire bowl in that. Now you get bounced back on it are a lot. I think you have every bit trickier Euro. Google period there is buried in the virtually. You know and in their left field now they are gonna have maybe a platoon of Jared Parker and and William send now Michael Morse has been raking them might be him as well but some people have said you don't really need a star. At every single position and they could live with a platoon in left field how much weight do you put into that Linus on. Well what it would you know apocalyptic but you're going to be in mirror. If it did at that mine in the you know all out or you'll. You know you get it it would cut an attorney dollar. I'm sure it went in right field and get word that bet on mine that was. You know eight. So not know it would work as part of it. And right now if you had you up prognosticate. The or World Series match up would be which two teams. It's no longer ago yeah I can bear bounced back. Look good after last year. Whitner pitchers who have been down now so I got tiger and yet the bought the rat pack of people will be last year. You'll in the event October. Idea of you're on now includes only hear the parent. I would not I would not be surprised at all disputed diet but there it. Jack Chris Sale to the Red Sox rich get richer. Yeah I mean they had put it right. Its guidance and what that if you put Garret in the National League. It was a great court shop that Butler number. These guys back. All right we -- Bob nightingale freedom and USA today and watching and it'll be in our fall on Twitter at the united gal hey Bob really appreciate the time and insights on a weekend and hope we will catch up again real soon. Our that it happened. I it's a very good Bob and I go national baseball writer and listen you know it's true you know he didn't even bring up the assessment astray that was going for a lead and work out but. Yeah I mean Alison Russell hitting a Grand Slam in the World Series. Josh thousand dollars in becoming the American League MVP. Those grouchy news that it's a cyclical weakness. There's like you know you rip off the scab in the bone comes out it hurts and think about that wild card game not one but two blown saves. That the guy for the best record in the history of facing the Kansas City Royals. And Jon Lester. You had John Doolittle was an all star closer that I your blown save. And just remember that hit by Casper and again the a's a lead again. I thought that was gonna win that but it wasn't how I asked Bo it was collapse though for the a's on 957 again. This is the Rick it'll show on 95 point seven games. Thank you so much for tuning in 957 game armor to all must have you with us and or here for another half hour. No guests the rest of the way so your my guess would be in my gas candlestick stereo or mom Angela Lansbury. To blame on 579570. Once he and hated A 957957. The Penske ourselves dot Comtex line is 95795. There is a announcement today just dumb. A little while ago excite about fifteen minutes ago. And sorry to announce a Dwight Clark. Says that say he has a Al ass. This is from the Bay Area news group. Quote I have LS also known as Lou Gehrig's disease said dead Roy Clark. Those words are still very hard for me. To say. Every single one of my forty niner teammates has contacted me and has said whatever I need any time I needed they won't help. That's just the kind of guys they are. They were so giving as players and now. They are the same as friends. And quote. I Dwight Clark. Obviously. A Bay Area legend. And the most famous play. In the history of the 49ers was not a play that won the Super Bowl because I would argue even more famous than the John Taylor catch. From. That's the second Super Bowl or they played Cincinnati the John Candy catch. I I think you for the young ends up there. Up and I'm a hundred years old. But when the niners beat the cowboys and an NFC championship game. The whole Bay Area. Was unite. And in today's social media world of just a constant teasing and there are no cowards on social media. A smaller 415 is arguing with a big Boller 51 now on Twitter. The the niners were such sad sacks for so long. That it seemed like this was their one shot we'd another gonna be a dynasty. It just I think if they can only get past the cowboys their bogey team the dynasty. And when. Joseph Montana was probably throwing away and brought it down. Over Iverson Walz who got pulls her eyes than a football way. The whole Bay Area the erupted on the narrow sixteen years old there was the raiders were defending Super Bowl champs. And there was a song on the radio about. Keep the trophy in the bay. Not saying that raider fans became niner fans but I think that we all knew niner fans I had cousins and uncles and aunts they were not her fans and it was always wait till next year and hear the term forty niner faithful. Those are the people that are sipping. You know Greece GO at Santa Clara before our faith for the people let's start with the team put them stinking year in year out. They're the right field bleacher of the gays they're the aquatic candlestick people. Let the people let's stick with a team when they stopped that that's what the forty niner faithful it's. There at the people who have a box and have forked out for that for that. It's not the same thing the niners were a joke forever. The niners had no quarterback. And they cut market when the raiders picked him up I was embarrassed. I really was embarrassed at that while we want him my dad much smarter than me still to this day. Said no it's Smart you need you need event like that it's a good move. But was he right to Super Bowl victories yes that you arrived as usual. You know they had that marketing ploy we're bringing back OJ. He's coming home. OJ was an Anderson playing football in Morey was old he was he was used up and yes he was amazing in buffalo but he was done. I had done Mike Hsu and on the show a couple years ago and and he was with the teams before bill wash came in to rule sixteen was as last year I think but. Said he had death in the interim head coach was and of frank O'Connor coming into the Scott bowl is down Steve to Burma's a bit wobbly quarterback consumables like is this the NFL. And like Freddie Solomon played alone college aren't using him. It was just amazing. At the niners were gonna go to the Super Bowl. And that was because of not just like Clark's catch. Remember you needed Dwight hicks to grab. Pearson. Drew Pearson. And a horse collar which is now legal he was off to the races. And then course the cowboys who lost three NFC championship games in a row you before that the loss to. They Eagles and then FC championship game ever Danny white the tears. You need to fumble recovery by drew Stuckey Biogen Stuckey. Now when the Super Bowl is here in San Francisco last year. And I was lucky enough to have a table from our syndicated show radio row like at some damage in Stuckey we talked about him recovering that fumble that allow people don't remember that literally put the niners in the Super Bowl. But I got to sit down what Dwight Clark who by the way is still with us he just announced that he has Lou Gehrig's disease. Why Clark is one of the more. Affable people you'll ever meet just huge smile on his face he was having a great time. And I kept it I said you know what I've always wanted to ask you this. And when I was interviewing him. I set our member in the chronicle for Super Bowl sixteen you had to travel lock. Basically a column that they let him have every day they're going to the Pontiac Silverdome remember that that's where was and freezing in Detroit. And I sit every day. You wrote about Wendy's. The first day you're like I like Wendy's they're my favorite fast food nothing about the Super Bowl. The next day I was almost a little bit scared to bring this up to that body be like what you're saying I'm stupid but it was the truth. To the next day you're like the thing I like about Wendy's is that they're patties are square. The third day like how how about that Chile McDonnell doesn't have any Chilean. And hold what I'm saying that he's he's literally leaning back in his chair roaring with laughter. Every hatred semis that it. And I said has anyone ever brought that up with the U and he said no one has ever brought that up with me. But you're absolutely right. And I civil why did you what was that all about he said I don't know when these he just blurted out with the fall laughter and I laughed. It was one of the more fun interviews I did. On radio row. I Clark is a he's in a fun guy he he likes a good time there's no doubt about it. Sell all I can say is that I wish him nothing but the best. And ironically just this week we lost Mickey Mars and to Lou Gehrig's disease pale last Mickey Marvin number 65 Mickey Marvin was. A guard for the raiders won two rings. I remember when he was a rookie. Even have very good rookie year and he was always holding and back then for you kids out there holding was fifteen yard penalty so holding was a huge deal. A fifteen MI down on his guy from Nicki Marin. But making Marvin. Got really really ged and I remember when the raiders moved back in 95. As in the press box and he was up there needs to stand there. And I said hey Mickey Marvin it like iodine. I said Al wanna shake your hand and you. You had a great career for us. And he said you wanna shake their hand of has ban. I said you're not as Benny goes yeah I am. And just self deprecating humor. Great guy and very sorry to hear about the passing of a making Marvin so Dwight Clark announced through and Daniel. Mono in the Bay Area news group that he has they'll last Lou Gehrig's disease. And a burial legend guy that I respect a guy that I have one of my mark and more a fun interviews with. And obviously San Francisco forty niner royalty so all our best. From all of us are not if a seven game for Dwight Clark as he fights this. AAA 957957. Let's go to the phone lines we have raid array up in the north bay what's up rhetoric. You know I'm here. I want our beat oh. What's the word the current work in Reno are currently use the old news today from the outset gay reaching out at San Francisco. What's the update has anybody heard he didn't what's going our Seattle. I don't know if you heard I had Scott marathon. In the last hour the raiders and cider with CSN and is he putted I thought very specifically he said it has layers 'cause I asked that marsh on reach out to them. Part of the raiders reach out to him device I was getting excited about AP. I'll take either one of those guys. Right now especially with its marine on the moon. I think you have to pass heavy lead now I think he either him or he would be a good. You know that little. To put out there to get on the stack the box give everybody one on one for Derek. I think it would help a lot just having that name back there. Regardless even repeat pattern you know under a thousand yards that they haven't met committee. I think he can do well under that I reject a real. Well what that offensive line I think you and I can probably get fifty yards in the game so just think about what a real guy like talk with kids. Actually it. Absolutely I mean goal line how many times last year that we find ourselves on the ball in the end zone you are insecure about. When we couldn't punch it and so I figured the huge I think you'll really be huge streak to get lunch. That was one of the factors I think of the Moscow losing his job despite the raiders having a top ten offense and and and they wanted to hold on that Todd downing that was member Jack Dario said more than once quote I wish we had run the ball more. Absolutely absolutely and that our backer me because I know who bill musgrave has had in the past. And how he opened up the pass went you know what the right you're so. It kind of it didn't make much sense and entrusted can opt improbable time to get down. The other just too much opportunity for mistakes and to. It blew my mind I've talked to Jack. You know up at the winery here are going into what she about it personally in each. You know he sent it was going to be committee back field and we saw. I just wish we consult more I think this year we're gonna see more of that opener they can get this fixed outlandish. I know they tried last year and that was kind of hysterical little said the need these aren't allowed to take number 24. Afterwards and last and we know we were retiring. No. Willie brown and how that retired along time ago I they read don't greater rate thanks for the comment I really appreciated. I just wanna make sure I get Brian in nab Brian is in San Leandro what's up Brian. First supplied officially in major props or later raid because I am calling all the time but I can't we. Strong right now like com on you. Double. Blood out and tired about ourselves. Mark which went about well. There on background the actual problem though is that what we really. We're going to be trapped people in a deal to trample and back there are so many. We might get the cap re you or whatever. Obviously. What this story on brown bachelor and now. All right thanks for the call RK before you slur your words anymore I do appreciate the call though I do. Think. Marsh shell like MR shell Marc Lynch Jack brownie said that one right you know the thing about Zach of course I'd like Zach brown. These is you know I did linebacker and there's no doubt. Runs like a 444. The other great thing about Zach brown would be even though I went that when he went on North Carolina. They say are you a good tackler and he did say he was the guy who was like all state. Wrestler. Like yeah I can grapple you. We'll see about that definitely when the raiders gave up and I don't know if people know this the raiders give up 375. Yards of offense on average last year that's 26. In yards given up. Why do you think they brought in this guide John Pug on how to hold Ken Norton's hand. It is still very much a work in progress will take one more break on the other side. All sporting topics welcome I'm not supposed to say were take a break you know what. This just happened. This is the Rick tittle shell on 95 point seven big game. Sounds too slow. Delete slow led down. Oh it's condi is version no wonder it's bad just plan. Welcome back we Gilmore Simon together ritual with united 57 the game that's me here you get on the horn shows about yells your calls Guinea Q we'll talk to you all other rhyming stuff wolfman Jack. Revelation 957. And 9570. Penske out of cells duck Comtex 195795. So west a look at Stephen no wolfman Jack is at a baton add to get a bit parent. That's great let's go to and by the way all sporting coach woman to believe I'm 5770 Mitch is in New Jersey how you don't match. Could create an Arabic. Or anchored. Our president raise them. Again it kind of rain and cook. Outing keep an eye and Richard. Rivera maybe your record Clijsters. What issue will. Heavy action and arugula homes involved flow. Which they throw it and keep you know used to it and and there that's. I think Rivera is is going to be gone they can move my relied on anyways these two slow at a left position they're knocking have dug like an all hands that type of thing. Not that they're gonna rely a lot on Wofford in and Lee Smith will be healthy again to start. Now blocking again so I don't think you know off OJ Howard is sitting there they would draft him I think after that the pick up from Green Bay and they're they're set at that position now. Ultimately raise them in which it would be checked they got cook from. They range this create your right. Yeah you are cutting us from Green Bay is Jarrett took over agreement. Yeah okay. And I think you're right you're boxes and our ticket to go. And in many of the foreign and went for it before it like economic panic that hit. I mean do they and it would be one doing the play elsewhere man John Brodie she's currently expect a quarterback. Like I remember those days basically they would it look pretty good. The wizards could win because one big game. Gathered bogey team was LA and by the way Mitch thanks to the comment I really appreciate it lines are open AAA at 9579570. As a catalyst they had artificial turf and has like all patchwork. Different shades of green. He had gene Washington. You know it's funny. There are three people here speaking and John Brody I work here that were named after Bay Area sports stars island named after Rick Barry. I was actually gonna be Roger. My dad went to war game Rick Perry was a rookie he thought Rick sounded better. And he's right. Darrell the guru Johnson is named after Darryl Monica that's why he spells at the same weird way that Darryl Monica did. And have brought him results home is that named him after John Brody. How about that. How about that and of course Chris Townsend is named after a grade down then on them just kidding that's his last night. But the first three those are all true. Actually call Mitch I appreciate it. On the text line from the 415. Rick should the warriors would be punished for resting starters. Especially on the road your thoughts. Well on the one hand you could say he doesn't wanna screw the home fans over and I understand there was a story about. A couple and their kid who paid through the nose. Through and stop Barbara whatever. They came from Mexico to go to the San Antonio again. And at the warriors. After they only want to see was staffed curry and they took him in the locker room and got to meet them and stuff and take little cell fees. I'm sure there was a least. Another hundred cases of people like that. By ivy you know I feel bad. For the people I didn't get to see the stars. I understand that Steve Kerr I understands the old adage of marathon not a sprint. The other thing is when you buy a ticket you're not guaranteed anything. Not heavy urban new play and you open up the play mill and little pieces of white paper fall out and you like down now. The part of Phantom of the Opera will be played by Rick tittle tonight now pump all lawyers Michael Crawford. I gave you move all. Under studies. I think the worst play I've ever seen in my life was hats. And I went there and it was all under studies. Mongo Jerry will be played by Dick Hertz. And rumpled he's earlier pled by tone deaf Tommy. I is just the most horrid. And plucked at the groups are you Andrew Lloyd whatever. But that's a bang out about the ticket didn't say. It was going to be there. Men deny a tourniquet these are suited and our golly gosh I I can't even judge Jonathan if the real people were. But under studies are just like back ups. So you can say you're ruining the integrity of the game. The entire NBA season. Until you get to the playoffs the first half is basically a stroll in the park. Why do you think the the warriors who are losing at halftime and then all of a sudden they would come on in the third quarter they literally start trying harder. So you know as I said I'm not trying to. Say that I'm happy those fans got to miss out when they gold are the part of staff curry will be played by Ian Clark that sucks for them. You know they said the ticket doesn't guarantee you anything. In fact if you look at the backing your ticket and are highly litigious society and our most litigious of all states. It basically says you will he be tarred and feathered and do what you can't sue us if it's. Flying pox. I know gathered to go pock right in the high in the biggest. Shiner you've ever seen. I'm still there was probably a trial attorney some are going weaken making a case out of this. We're all gonna get let's compensatory and punitive damages. Read the back of your ticket. Baseball too. Never especially minor leagues man your ear sit right there. You're sitting right there you take a bat right off the head and that's not great. Mom. Mother settles forty topics welcome Rick as a texture pence got to sell stock Comtex on the front seven time. Rick did you watch the talk numb Southampton match this morning of course led. And what nor Harry Kahne for awhile. Gotta find you able to score goals Dele Ali with the pan who is very poorly taken you basically get a ride down the middle. But 21 I'll take it at the lane I'll take those three points. From move from a five mono Rick. Any interest in pro days. Yeah bullpen it's funny because if you don't know what a Prodi you probably do if you're listening to the station. But even after the com buying colleges will have their own pro days and it's like I'm gonna run much better. At my place fled in Indianapolis you don't like the sea level atmosphere or altitude no I don't know what's wrong. I need to throw demy receivers and isn't it funny that you bring that up Dwight Clark was discovered because Bill Walsh went to go see the Clemson quarterback. And trying to remember his name he ended up playing in the league for awhile. But he asked why Clark do you catch you know say they were Dwayne Crum bat. At Hofstra. He was there because the jets had their camp there and they needed some extra bodies one day in his like I and Aussie Steve Fuller policy as a quarterback and clams and that's on Dwight Clark was discovered. The same thing up in Butte college Jeff Jeffrey went to look at that tight end who we sign and he immediately talk about. Being able to suss out and evaluate talent. Now it's jumped effort went to Butte college. And here's Aaron Rodgers storm passes to the tide and whose name I forget who played for cal. And that efforts and how many. Just from watching a guy in his shorts. I love people like and evaluate talent that you're the guy and the giant took the longest last name in the history of baseball William vandal handing him all one word the girls like Williams and landing talent like Ethan Hawke never him. In the ninety's. All of the story about he was drafted with the giants gala to see the University of Kentucky and he was in the bullpen and never got in the game. But the guy from the stands a scouts saw him throw in the bullpen and like yeah he's. He I think he complained of bigs and he did he was in the rotation for awhile. I love guys that can find talent like that but. I it is Steve Fuller thank. I thought it was before but you know thing about pro days that are funny is that way in the media we get these lists of who's gonna have their pro days today and analysts say today's pro day is. I USC. Notre Dame Florida State Penn State Boston College. Stanford. And a dull office. And had just literally next school like that. There haven't wrote today my what do they have an outstanding punter. I guess somebody would show up. And then watch the punter for adult focus that at some point. But the aim and the clock is ticking the draft or try to tell people don't understand the majesty and the skull don't agree and everything that goes into the the draft the draft is the most fascinating. Off the field off the hard wood off the ice thing that exists in sports the NFL draft. And all that goes into all the nuances and teams destroying their future and teams winning the lottery with your future and everybody who mostly chokes. At the draft can't wait for to start my thanks to my guess they Scott Bair. From CS and talking raiders and Bob nightingale of USA today. And the MLB network how we'll see you next that we can armor total will send it to fox on the rest of the night on 957.
