You just feel better. What's this and what we need to do is just take a vacation in just they take one day a week in just do as many forty work weeks is possible. Yes what law and legally here it's like iron. Well we get vacation here yeah. Sometimes the company gives that to us I think he might have heard that before I don't think it's exclusive to this company it's called something like. Need time off and TO but we don't have carry overs now you can't. And that's seated with me he gets that way you can roll it up and save it up. It was just a bit I think it's about a I would do I would lie about like six months they just disappeared that he may be I don't IQ so this is some places do that Nike after they ten years you get to take like among get on him in out.

He racks upon these days he never takes him and he gets to like September. And he realizes that he hasn't had days that he can take every Friday for the rest of the year off and that's what he did lash in its freaky magical is that. Well I think if you can get to that like to mean I don't wanna go no I've got to ten months without yeah well I don't matter I don't I think you're the same way but I usually have one to two fear really large trips a year and he just kind of sprinkle.

And who's ever seeing with me or if I'm just doing it by myself it's always worse I do about myself if this just me solo. Then. I say there's at least three to four and there are legitimately. Panicked. Of what happened Iraq is rough fired and I love to stoke those claims. And do that well you know what I don't know I I don't know where is that there's some rumors going around the building. And people lose their and I keep people talk and picked it does happen from time to time we get vacation or in this case. 12100 snowfalls. Yeah in my house is about nine inches. And we magic and I still have a ruler. And flexible are there. Now I have one of those old hard wood rulers. Who doesn't curve one direction or if it's nine inches. With a prop likes the hardwood rulers. I still have one of those in my desk in front yeah this he will also the VCR. We don't uses just sits there that you haven't it VCR yet noticed at the other MIK is it looked up examiner Kay you look at you didn't even know is in your now it was up it's up in our bedroom in his kind of hidden. On because undermines other crap but hey that's that old it was one of those dual VCR plus. DVR things new DVD or dvd things. End you see if you can actually hook that up to UT I think it is I think it's that the port there they're still looking compatible I have the red and white wire out into the bank. Only got to do is go to the source and don't VCR on the TV it's the damn this things attitude TV. I least over the summer at least at least a mustang for the summertime. And small hollow man submitted a humble bragged that he had clearly. So I went to put to have a summer car has simpler car ready scars so I went to I went to put a CD in. I got one from the station I forget who someone put out a new CD is with the red chili peppers and out and they gave it to me at the station I can't. Really nice guy virtually ever that we I think maybe we've talked I don't think we have because it's a real issue that's a little bit of a that hot Tate and that is why its iPod take well but it's like my deal with some. Like your opinion man yes they should I let you know greatest comeback of all time that's just like you know your opinion man rush you not like the chilly air marshals say that about right like how can you know I crashed that guy. The lead singer for Russia's voice strides means I get Getty Lee rush may not be for same thing but same thing that the sound of Red Hot Chili Peppers. Doesn't it for me never has beat him to mind another good blown but it just not I just never really liked to reconstitute. Any you I went to put in the CD. And about five minutes later I realized there was no CD player a kid I was like whoa what else. Like you're looking all around and of your Radenovic and a rental cargo like it has to be here somewhere I'm looking in the arm rest I'm like you are they going retro and they put the CD changer in the truck. I spent a legitimate five minutes looking forward and then I realized there's no CD player there are cars now that aren't. Coming equipped to see players because who the hell this is to a CD. Which is rightfully so I wouldn't have bought it they just had with the station as they kidney chili peppers and that to me. So anyway marine. Underwriter personal and Javier Morillo we are Gammon. Los canceled the show actively as Mike. Mike's been in the game I'll however I will not name names but I do know of a radio host in this town. This is amazing. Who. May not only made it to work yeah. But he posted his own show he is co host as cohost was not there. His producer was not there. And so he got a one hour tutorial on how to run the board. One hour prior to his broadcast and he broadcast his entire show not only by himself. But running the board you I can't even begin to tell you and I nowadays does seem impressive to anyone outside here any mic maybe people like no that means I'm telling me. That is dedication that is not the dedication I could not do I would have zero chance of succeeding you could I could do that. A leading you to. I always around the board you don't miss began when it came in here but I he pretended like you know what you're doing. And I was over your shoulder hoping you'll do pretty well. You don't you're attempted to host and run the board that no I would never do that though because if I did it well guess aka the boss is immediately going he's having a likable moment going lol why do we need might tell you right now this is one of those things in this is his mistake and he will remit Rickie we won't talk about it but for this unknown radio pioneer he and if you will. You screwed the pooch on this one this is like when you get asked to do ensure the you don't wanna do and you do it may easy Nin and and you got a screw that up. The first night so bad he told me that he did not do big job. Well and and that's his only hope Nelson doing and think he has bosses. Yeah sounds like while it looked like nobody else is there but he was there a bit in the there is anybody running that show over there and why did he do it. You know what I ate I just I'd call and be like eight. I think national programming I mean I think he wanted to get away from him that's what I mean isn't that finally owns amusement I want it happens. That's way in avoca Tuesday. We give a go to sleep at the office a lot but that's mean because they hate their families I'm looking right you younger and so the show was canceled. Now we apologize we were devastated. Up I could have been here. I could have been here way. I did not a good thing I don't think I could amazing tournament I've been driving around the whole time pad and it's been gets married but. Doable today problem is the prom it we have a whole hot. I think tonight's club may be all weather atop our hot snow atop because we do need to talk about. We do so many observation sexier real snowstorm so many questions on a question does this is a foot of snow when that happens your laughs as big big snowstorm yeah. But. Now what was Agassi so. This is why you can't have days off criminal market because you're just going to be. Bride when you compact full time you'll let Greg get men in the Aggie I'm proud traveler and you drug spinning the wheels yet made an airport run late in the night. Now because people got strain I mean I've been all over and it also have a track. But a big on a question yet tell me a lot but I will say that the biggest problem on the big trucks yet those guys I have many questions about them and what. Their protocol is because. All it takes is one truck one big anti those big like you're eighteen Wheeler eighteen Wheeler rigs. All it takes is one. To F up the whole city yet the whole thing so there were a lot of them and by the way I still. Contend that our biggest issue is not whether it's the fact that we have a city of two million people and we have to free gene Epstein lanes are running to the middle of our city it's its amazing to me. Well hold onto it but I don't wanna get you fired up well but I silently your point eighteen Wheeler in you get like that. That should magma of lake Harden rock. Like ice that bank goes right underneath your wheel wells into that black gunk. I saw one of those break lose some and eighteen Wheeler today and hit the guy next to meet in the windshield shattered his windshield am scared the hell out of meat some like a gunshot. Outdoor reared back guys fish Taylor his whole window was broken. If I decide come up with a huge truck it was like the size of a soccer ball. Yeah the truck. Sarah there are few hazards on the trucks are scary aren't so wool out we'll have hot weather tock so many questions. On May be no answers the questions will you later it's not about. Sharing answers do people wiser man than me once said that you connect more with people not giving them the answer is up by having the same question there. As a good that strip I'm in industrial. And I really got a kick out of people fighting about the weather on Twitter I'd. I mean I sat back and watch a lot of Twitter fights about snow all fascinated about social media fights just period and that is what people do really interest and so all that later. But we have a big very very big sports story to get to right off the tops top ski here. If you release. To get our sports release. The slightly uncomfortable with. More comfortable then your hard wouldn't nine inch ruler. I did a hardwood. Nature. You puke and you went out and you measured. And as you know you've answered with a yeah. Nadal at the top. Almost. It's cold in. The chargers are missing. Yes yes they are this is a big sport story. And it will kick off our show next on the fifth. Primetime where guys against duke on 1088 the slam. Okay have we given gas coming up in our next segment America like you you are correct there must count. Michael Hawley. From WEI radio and Boston he wrote a book called. Belly check and bring 82 men the patriots in how they revolutionized football. I think listing look at their relationship and as they get sent take on the Texans this weekend. We will look at what makes Belichick and Brady chicken that will be in ten minutes clearly clearly the dynasty ends on Sunday with the vicious cock fight that has brought us Weiler you know like Jason you never know earth that's Saturday. That that I think on the first game I think I guess that's the Saturday game and yeah I do know the Texans are not going into Gillette Stadium in beating. So here's a poll question today Tinny need to stand dot com write to Diane Wood Brothers brewing I still bridge Porter a true Portland original which team made. Or will make the smartest man of chargers to LA. Rams to LA or raiders to Las Vegas if it happens vote at 1080 the fan dot com this is web moderator at the ages. Is because it is sad in San Diego. As BC NBA games are losing their chargers have been there since 1961. At least it's Q beautiful if you gonna wanna go to LA and shoot. They're only moving just up the road. But it's ever did when you see a fan base no matter how good that Candice is or what no matter what the circumstances good EC sports fans. It there team taken to another. City now that's Sox joined CN. Especially ones that they care I mean there's some cities like if you excludes the hockey team is anyone give a rip. But city gala some but I think every. Of course there's a there's a difference between the Phoenix Coyotes move mean in this Indy which you know my raiders had today because the charges are officially moving to Los Angeles and so their ownership announced. With the worst logo and sports did us feel like did you see the Tampa got I did yeah I did that was fun. Late delay the Tampa Bay Lightning take a little shot at the new chargers logo. So willow does not official no it's just it's it's kind of a rebrand for the moved LA it's it's that they're not saying that that's gonna be a permanent logo but it's. They did get a new LA logo that looks like. Are a really bastard. Combination of did the Dodgers and then the Tampa daylight means like able and meet the tab a light mean. Twitter account put out something and it went like kind of like. Cost side hey we just want everyone to know that we have the Dodgers are just friends. Is it looks like the bastard offspring of the Dodgers in the Tampa Bay right. Logo is kind of a funny little tweet making fun of its. Become a thing on Twitter today were all these teams are tweeting out logos with lightning bolts on the in my favor one was actually the Dallas Stars is that hey Dallas Cowboys yarder new logo and it was just the cowboys star putting green. If you like her new look up and they are getting killed logo it's. It's pretty bad and it's it's just it's poorly. Yet doesn't I think sometimes the easiest W like. You knew aren't good designers on the case eerily well how how. And I feel like I could've designed yes and probably done a better and I'm not a designer and you don't need to redesign eating sand eagle has some of the best looks. From from uniforms to logos to Brady in in all of football like why do you. Why do you try to change that that to me screams of some like hipster marketing guy be and I were gonna capture the youth with this extreme new logo. As the husband of a designer I can tell you it's probably not the designer it's probably the client who went we just want this to Avalon and it and they're like well okay your pain me to do this sure. Went up. As a new Mike that is designed like yeah look at how will brag about him as a man whose merry XM as in that's an insight right there is. But I were raiders hat today because I feel strongly that the raiders are gonna make up the best editing these teams it's interesting that it seemed like win all of this shifting took place for the rams moved to LA. That the raiders with the team that was gonna get screwed yeah right but I think that after you look at this the there's Los Angeles a city that doesn't give a rip. About either the rams or the chargers. Gets both of those. Not clubs they do you know obviously as the rams owner Stan grant cocky Yates is big billion dollar stadium new multi billion dollar state. But the chargers are renting. Evidently have to pay up bock. The raiders. Getting their own stadium in Vegas. This as. Mean I'm BC much smaller markets in LA I think is the best move of the three. I think that I'm whit did that except. Remember a lot of these times move leaned. Is about one thing and one thing only and that's the value of your franchise. And if we've learned anything from the Dodgers and we've learned anything from the clippers and the cell of those teams. The debut in years Panos and you wanna sell your team your team is worth. Significantly more when it's in Los Angeles than it is anywhere else if you're in New York if you're in LA that's what it is I think financially as far as operating costs. And and revenue coming in I'm with Oakland's gonna make out way better by being in Vegas I mean I mean that products and yet for the fans and it is I. I think that is a home run go and if that happens they didn't get as so they announced that the the charges were moving in the Roger Goodell said that he was impressed with the significant. I believe I'm I'm getting it right I'm trying to compare phrasing significant progress that has been made their moving into the Vegas. Weights used and it's gonna happen you're gonna have two teams in LA you have one team in Vegas that's gonna be the raiders so that's the that's. That's happening in the weird part about the charges is they're gonna play in a 30000 seat stadium for the next two years because they LA coliseum. The rose bowls that now rules that were not having a protein play you're not gonna happen LA coliseum I guess and there are. Whatever you call like their charter or whatever that kind of a bylaws the stadium says that they cannot have more than one protein plate there and the re sorority there. It's a legally they can't play in the LA coliseum. Little else the play they're gonna play the stub hub center which I think is the soccer stadium that's a third they're gonna convert that to 30000 people and that's going to be. That's gonna be where there although it's better because if they stayed instead deal for the next two years you got 5000 people show up. That would be the ultimate grudge if you would know when shows up to those games don't have a choice. Dan Wetzel said best he's football writer hmm he said. San Diego the the chargers are leaving the city they don't really want to leave and one that doesn't want them to go. They are moving to move to a city they don't really want to be in no one that doesn't want them to come or at best doesn't care that's what's happening. And some are saying that this may be another huge crack in the armor the NFL that for the longest time you know it's like will do anything we can't did you get an NFL team to keep an NFL team do you now start to see some cities that are shrugging their shoulders and saying whatever. The sick if residents had multiple chances to keep this team and all they had to do was pay the low low price of one point 15 billion dollars. And collectively they all gave the middle finger to a billionaire who wanted a billion dollars a public funny I thought this was great I more seeds we do this and if people start to stand up and weakness. And say no we're not gonna do this crap. Then the owners wouldn't be expecting this sort of billionaire welfare when it comes to build. There's it does is always someone they can go out and if and the rams and chargers fail in LA and they leave guess let someone else someone else's lined up to move into that stadium I'm looking ready you Jacksonville for bubbles. Or anyone big starts this. There's this notion that North London first can't stand rocky did the rams are he owns the building. And so you'll be ranked team to the charges but if you read through the deal. It's a sweetheart of a deal it's a one dollar release that they're having to pay big Gator proceeds of of revenue from the stadium. So it's not as if this is going to be a bad financial move for the the chargers they're just not gonna be in control of the building. And they technically willow tenets and that's not ideal but they're not getting bent over backwards and having to pay out. All this model loyalists assume they can't get a stadium in San Diego you know any options now do they well they do which is paid for their own stadium. Or come to the table and actually now. Well this is better than that this is better than that and the only bummer is DC they have to pay a 650 million dollar relocation fee snuck back. 650. Million dollars. It tells you how screwed that situation was series life can buy some new curtains for the it's just amazing to knowingly stadium that the owner is bitching and moaning when he's worth almost three billion Indies bitch and moan about not being able to afford a. Let's let's talk more about that as we move on through today show pretty big news charges are headed LA that next the patriots back in action this weekend trying to get to the Super Bowl again. Well that Brady and Belichick combos pretty ged. What makes it tick and how did he come together in the first place WEEI radio's Michael Holley wrote a book on that and he'll be joining us when we return here's Mike. We're advising consumers can't tell me though fan. And patriots gear up for another Super Bowl run taken on the Texans this weekend. No coach quarterbacks combo in league history has won more games then. Bill Belichick next. And Tom Brady will force Super Bowls in the sixth I mean isn't even an argument anymore that this is the best combination of both I don't know that it is Jason. And it and very fascinating. Pair of sports figures and this next guest Michael Holley from WEI radio in Boston. Wrote a book about him called Belichick and Brady to mend the patriots and other flu how they revolutionized the ball. And now Michael joins us now in your email Michael. I can would grow taller how are you. Good doing good you know my first question is out of the question I've always wondered and you will be a great guide it. Do you as this is Bill Belichick truly is big of a jerk is he seems from a far. Could I can't believe me I can understand the question packet appreciated to. Because you guys have you guys have seen it and went seeded here. Kentucky did go to a play that media game you can't comment on the simple question whether he'd just say dancer go out at the bottom of the dialogue. And at and most of the time he doesn't. I've seen all sides of the lead to three dimensional character look we all are so we all have our. The great moments are public public sort of Obama could do so probably a little more than our. Are trends that are exposed give us credit work. So things like that to me he's got. Other side of his personality they're actually interest seeing that here at times I agree with you can post publicly it'd take it became. Well as it is than you you had eight Iran you know what was this almost. Two decades ago with the 1617 years they've been together you had a retread coach. Who was a failure as first stop a six or a quarterback they couldn't. Win the full time starting job at Michigan. And then they go on to form the greatest dynasty and in modern football so that's the question. More responsible Belichick Brady for this Iraq. I am in Atlantic. I get that question. I've heard that question a lot not only nationally but locally every we've spent many hours on the radio debating that bat boy. Nobody really had the right it sure that the gentlemen won one and you can say what the team builder is most important can't do anything in and out well. If you don't have our good structure good organization and somebody would vision collegiate team can detect a players on the other hand. And you can say they have the greatest coach of all time they're not gonna do anything unless you have culture and talents go back work I do believe this though. I don't know this might be a cup probably an actual question but I truly believe that. Yeah they're they're geniuses in the partnership. I think Tom Brady could have won a Super Bowl without Bill Belichick and Bill Belichick could have what mr. Obama dot com. Think. That they will be guys who could say you have been fixing crippled so we want torching the the last sixteen division titles that won more games and any coach quarterback combination in Italy which I don't I don't think. They will be able to accomplish all of these staying on Merrill's. This is Michael Holley from WE IA radio in Boston on Belichick and Brady what is the story behind them how they came together mean them. Patted don't happen. Before particularly a certain age you you've got such a good question and I'm still thinking about the out of via the bleacher like connect up to reach that voluntary. Held it's a wake. Observation. On your part in yesterday on the show we were just talking about it and who it is different context. It goes out of outlook public hired Sean McDermott has some new blood in there and at buffalo air and as you guys know the LA rams hired the youngest coach in NFL history carnage on the big hoopla. And little micros is saying well would you rather have this new blood order retread actually well. Let's not just crap on the retread so fast. Because it. Some of these some of the most beloved coaches and posture and reach impossible industry. Richard you mentioned Bill Belichick richer. Quote Jews and with the Bruins went Stanley Cup value is part of what job the NHL. Doc Rivers won a championship here. I was fired in Orlando. You got a particular Francona broker a long World Series trip won't surge comes from Boston. It did not do well and Philadelphia so. I attend saint. At times were a little too dismissive of people who have failed the first time some people got the first tablet is no good data now never been get out of some of as you're persons thoughtful and you're really honest with yourself can speak about the mistakes that you made. If say welcome to another opportunity. I'll do this late next time and sometimes it's just good luck you look at Joseph Torre. With Atlanta. Well okay he was all right to look at Joseph Torre with the cardinals where he was just all right. Look at it yankees and he's got also named because he has an all fame because of what he do with the Yankees. So yeah I think I think view. We probably ought to expend a conversational remorse article that came to did you just did you get in the right spot Miguel Miguel. Not this because you know you look through Bill Belichick there he had what five years in Cleveland one winning season he went five and eleven gets canned. It's hired. What five years there are New England goes five and eleven in today's NFL. He may not make it past that first season we've seen first year coach is go five and eleven get canned. And then the next year of course they were in the Super Bowl today's modern football you may not get a chance. This so I couldn't we got to start talking about coaches are saying we would talk about players you know player. So either big free agent contract didn't. No there was an undisclosed Jose just seven years a hundred million. And we essentially okay ballistic guaranteed money can YouTube never going to be their first seven years since they were coaches hate cycle five year contract is until you act as a batter. Most franchises will not be patient with the coach took the life of the contract it really is becoming. BA light. With their shots like coaches and we do you know if you guys again and yet it gave French. In you guys are due to Trent has did you think about the Colombian you know eight. It's hard to keep looking coaching change their I don't opera bit just about no bloc members but. Look at somebody seems so what and it just. How do you bet the coach and an unbelievable four. Michael Holley here now I'm back to beat the other question. This one the biggest deals and draft history and most other teams did not like Tom Brady. You know whose credits word for drafting him and how this all came together in the first place. At Oakland gets. You'd have to give. Basically kind of the late quarterbacks coach for the patriot chipped it in the bulk of the credit. Bill Belichick a lot of men from the giant trade I'm talking about can control his entire career. Agnico stop with that I'm. That doesn't really get respect form and he made about first year quarterbacks coach which was good because she was looking at the position. Which fresh eyes and a veteran quarterback coach made public debate the same way the rest of the NFL did very well. Culture have been special they're so loud Belichick is is very rapidly deplete our credit score. Scouting Brady and clearly standing up orbit draft room. When he got to decrypt route six round. Are multiple that we are talking about undrafted free agents so luckily everybody deserves most of the credit and once let's go lady. I got to Foxborough. And learn the offense. Did make it seem that they accept an estimate that they had all in court that they do they have a guy it was pretty good it was quick learner are worker. In even before Drew Bledsoe took a devastating hit from all Louis and their coaches and staff there. Brady's go to better than Bledsoe. And he's going to be starting quarterback version. That was going to be in my next question if they had any idea or was at the last or deliver in his leg like I guess we'll see what happens but it was it sounds like this wasn't just. You know completely out of the blue there were some people that rile him. Yeah I mean do you have any idea of the hall of fame level no. Attract loose at a cost them millions and billions of dollars on the calm behind him personal interviews and personal workouts and I hope you guys questioned about not gonna do applaud got to get into it's territory that talk to a second great teachers agree teacher about that next door neighbor. That the people street sold like a another thing about a lot of information and all that analysis and over analysis. Actives. A lot but it missed I have to tell me a while ago he says it is the it is the scariest thing I do. Letting writing and turning and a player evaluation because you have no idea you're just still a lot a lot of guesswork. And most of the league. Guest on Tom Brady in the guest well. Because she was almost not drafted. So we can't really give you can't go too far say no they knew all along what they trapped about big they're giving credit to that a hundred nightly. Or other item that 198 possibilities drafted in the patriots finally. Two epidemic 199. Put. There's no way anybody saw become the best quarterback ever. His new book is called Belichick and Brady two men in the patriots and how they revolutionized football. Excuse me Michael Holley WEI. An intercom owned stations in non Boston thank you Michael. Our assembly and is an account lemon and my number no I'm not mentioned at the end of the allies you know I mean. It at the beginning I would have given you even more secret. But they're they're. The here's the difference like what people say in the in the we're the radio you say yeah I it's kind of a big deal when you say camp XX it's not so much happen. God god god give Republicans a little bit like hello paternity of be like a secret handshake and that it could get a bit like it I would tell you all sorts of stuff.

Yeah he's hot one to tell you before we go Suk was downplaying. The value of KFXX radio out here in the low Portland or get a let me tell you that is this station was one of the first Sports Radio stations on the West Coast generals lawless here's little fun fact for you Michael. Oh I who I would put that met back pocket sort of next time I'll talk sabbatical Portland. I thought I would mention that probably got up and one more question I guess you can they have guys here that used a group makes yeah. I know what one more quick question Torre. No word as a rapper. I Saddam. We'll you're asking your touch and like to do widest guys in America. I'm LA and like people like hip hop term so. So what do you think of them though if you listen to let's say you don't know anything about it pop if you if you hear delivered to like you're more or you say that's a. You know I'm gonna go to Mike on this earth and let my producer in on this he's he's up Arnold he's young Knight Mike what do you. Yeah like prop yes yeah zip yeah. She's pretty I'd like ice a lot heavier. Army but he's obviously a big yet to. Yet to torture credentials. Are clearly it was a paper wrapper log time. Move my favorite rapper of all time low probably. Probably either non loser Eminem OK okay got a okay that it goes back here and then. So now in the context. Dame got. What are you he's pretty good he's all right he's got he's better than any other athlete turned rapper buddy eased he's pretty good. Both of ringing endorsement the I I think all giving the collective. Rant there right. This is like he's a basketball he's he's talented and I love guys that that you know branch out wanna do different things and I'm from a panel. Well I appreciate you guys yeah I want to get a real you yeah. Like that I like that a lot begins today. It's all about Phil and air time whereas the radio guys should clock it doesn't matter what happens on worked so well I NG run it run the ball moved detained this. There it is how seriously did you God's sakes tell me. Take care good luck with the book that's Michael Holley and the V I radio. I cannot give an honest opinion. I can't even gave dollars because he's telling. I used. Solid he's obviously tell it like he's selling records called OK and you put out a rap and like if you're really rich like him up. Can't you just put on Iraq wrap a matter well probably you can answer you can drop it drop it you can drop an album that's mild. Or is this if he's not. Damian Miller and he just some kid from from Oakland does he have a wrapped well. I that I don't know but I guess it doesn't matter. Because he he's able to do it because you do it we'll look at it though if I'm happy just to ring regular guy from Oakland maybe that doesn't ever wrapped a little but that. I just go off people who wouldn't. Are little more informed on the stuff and I am and yes I've seen on people who think he's really got and that's I do enough for me I deferred that. I'm indeed I may be BB squad yes you are and in America well look answer the question is this good hip hop look Egypt. Did you just if you haven't seen since look him up on the web site and it's not not to data has ago. All right well and along a will be right back with hot takes on the fan. Trying time revising get sued gun sanity though. It's Dylan interviews radio guys bring you guys can. It yet they just didn't go anywhere. Yeah a lot of time to film. Let's get very and there are no matter and that's because he's a radio guy love that ended up with Allen Crabbe than dame dollars. They did as a special. Trust me these Swiss Army knives of the meteorologists they can BS. But he was great I really enjoyed him actually more on the blazers then that the patriots because he had so many questions but I I was I wanted to bring up. That you know sixteen he battling crap. He sit out there in Boston coming isn't it a little about the blazers but that game LeBron playing and on ESPN. So he is a well you tune in Allen grabbed which is why that's why the blazers were so ray player last night there was talking about. You know it's like they got four hour sleep and theirs it's their. You know travel situation was all off they are against the blazers want the players wanted to stay in Los Angeles. And the team got them out and there's a new wing and given him a night off in Los Angeles. Were going to Seattle and they stayed the night in Seattle in some hotel and they were they were not happy about it and so they're all his stock in their day they're not sleeping in there they're. Routines off well the reason they showed up won the bronze in the house in two it was on ESPN. All the lights are on you for a lot of people are. I problem that's why right there that's the only chance most of those people have to see Allen Crabbe all year that's right and if you don't think that matters the NBA players your fooling your that's right you're enroute batters they look at the schedule for us especially on Portland yet and down. And it helps too that. For what ever reason Cleveland just. When they come out here it is now amended and they have not someone said that this is blues I think we got a text program. Messes I think it was it was the second or third time. He's paid premium prices for LeBron for left for profit it's that he's been screwed. Every Tehran has laid snags here yes no question I just I don't know what it is I don't know I don't know what it is. I think of Portland lost three of five so they're struck down a little bit they've had some injuries that issue lashed remember they came the day after Christmas now in the blazers horse show live up. I think that's what got Ole. What's is not fired is what to vote black got the the vote in his clothes sit in the arts is around then yeah. But yet he's he's had some good games here but he's also had some real duds I wonder if just. You know that Utah Portland swing which is what Cleveland is dead now. Is just. One of the least sexy swings to guys in the league is tired and it's a long trip in the varieties that you don't wanna be in is easy OK and that's thanks in no one ever really Phil Jackson used to not come hearing coach I know that was durable wood stove you know what my hips bothered me a little bit gap brand busy. You tick this Aussie Aussie when he of that crowd now he's the coach of the team now so I think guys view this trip. The swing of the West Coast trip is kind of like and a and maybe that plays into it but this guy sane and I will have to a decent deal on this piece in LeBron is over his last eight against Utah. Three or something there something in the the holy watered down Lola. Look you 82 games and he's coast to me that guys can be playing all the way through till one. Late June outfit did this bit of extra games that that body weight has played played two or three extra season yeah over the last whatever it is six or seven years. Cause you think he gives a rip about that Utah Portland seriously ask the find places to learn in Bonderman and coast and that as someone that spent five years in Utah. And trust me there's eight if you do you wanna check out you does a good place to do it you're not missing anything. By not going out and about and in Utah and their west L western conversations via naming the east that he you know. So but. We're talking Michael there were 191000 people thanking everyone with that thing was almost full they announce is so I only was it was that close did that figure some of the seas but it was amazing because I remember this. A number of years ago I was this was for five years ago they had when he's with the Memphis. Remember who was there was a game like this where that got postponed in the in the at the weather and where they gonna have it. About 45000 people they showed up I remember seeing that game and there was just no want to remember them in the arena and I saw a thing where it was hits and Joseph said that he was talking to people. Higher up in the blazer organization and they were putting the over under at about six grand that they thought might show up and you got 1718. I mean it was it was a big crowd yet bows at the Detroit game did. 'cause I was on they post it on the line there about thirteen pounds or two that that interest because it was easier to get. It was easier to get to the pistons game and it was the cavs game as a guy who drove doable. And yet. There are far more Finn experiencing you know once showed up sort to goes to show they were in the Bronson down its Cleveland they K you know what let's let's find a way I think we're I think that had a lot to do that I'll think that. I've paid a pretty penny for a lot of people like cabin fever. And yet people pay money for those think it's ever paid 203 for a bucks to go see the you know LeBron. I'm showing up when I see LeBron lane make. At the gate it was a great lakers played like a great game from Portland played really well best ball movement I've seen from the blazers in in months that I see looked like the old blazers office you adjusting that's like treated. Look at the hot icicle rock dikes to steal my Twitter today that's all I do I disarm their my hot blue blazer Twitter takes it. Those last year's team they are red hot on airplane while and that was Lester sports six merit much better. On the team lame. Somebody Texan said well. Everybody made it to the game last night in early mentor today these are people without kids and the kids are out of school it's and that ship we have. Very few people in our office. Yeah and those you that are here I am silently judging you think you know what you do the people that are here my cap I knew that was my gag. You know same sensibilities like gala scandal were a skit and asked not to do erode the sleeves it's going to be tough may be slower I have kids yet I had band in this Tyrone. You hear like zero I'm here. Can fend for themselves dressed the work they could PB and go over and now on display in the Alberta park snowball fight but there was no movement yeah impromptu and very Portland do you regulated very very Portland.
