It was everything in more so they were great hosts it was a great time in Vegas I'm currently locker on the office like rob Lowe's character Indian Wayne's road after the cavity checks. No idea why but I'm sore everywhere. I think I may be on for hours of sleep in three days. Yeah and that's that's turned into the most and I'd never. I'd never drink and for three straight days and I did this. Is that they don't do a little bit better than you because I've been preparing my body for weekends like this for a long time you've been training for you I have been training extremely hard to survive a 72 hour binge trip to Vegas that the but gut that the partly dances to sleep because you just don't sleep like. Friday night we go to bed till like 630 which was a bad idea. You wake up at like 1230 vehicle and again an inside a never ending game started so early yesterday we're watching them and this week with the boys it was a ton of fond ya know I lost fumbles games we've early modified for skin ticked off that news I heard when he when you don't wanna read all 5 AM that's early man and I might even make the right academic electoral one and then let's say you know hours later than most Sundays the alarm goes out of sight all right here we go who has a Tito isn't score let's get this day started right. I mean not only did I really kind of learn and understand Vegas in being in the casino for an extended amount of time in not having any concept of what time it really is I really got the grass. This morning when we got out of the hotel room I was on an hour of sleep. And we locked out and it's it looks like it's may be 2:2. AM in the hole in the casino looking up the doors and as soon as we actually opened the doors and get out. There's this beaming sun in my face now's gosh. They almighty god they don't lets you see anything and that was it was a big trip for you for your first one to Vegas. You did Vegas the right way today for your first trip you needed it it's yeah blow up the budget number and I don't have a moment of getting las which thank god I didn't because my body would ended up some rock Las Vegas Strip finale. How many it was me actually being a good father while I was just completely inebriated. I randomly just thought I gotta get my daughter and Eminem's of their name all of which spread disappears from the Caesars casino floor last night I think we're playing real letter black jacket like where they held its great we'll also represent a New York, New York to be a mess up. I always a covenant jab glory. Our goal of the Eminem store event I think the father of the year right. There and in the cab driver fleece me he took the really long way it's are just going straight down the stretch to take sobriety is I don't trust me my friend to go quicker. Mike and I'm not big resides in my cab ride that was maybe a quarter mile away costs way more pain walking back it was pouring rain. I was kind of confused of how to get back to caesar's. It was kind of a whole incident yesterday yeah I think he showed up back in the Vizio elect 1 in the morning. They're spreading what's up Manny got the Eminem still look their names are on it by the way somebody saying nothing wrong with little water. Yes who we hydrating all day today yeah it that gesture that was that was initially started the weekend because Kevin Todd already like to pepper sprayed throughout the course is breaking line this year and then boomers sitting in this. When we went to the nightclub in Caesars palace drum any up omni as the name of it and it was off the hook by the way we need to talk about. Because there was some big DJ there that was pressing buttons and made a bull load of money get dirt and I were probably thirty feet behind him and we watched his whole set is like what is this guy's dodi's like Macon 500 grand he's not doing it and one of the guys who's from the East Coast came club and days that this. Guys make you real hundred Dallas until all is. Nicole Lee Murray is his present buttons and there's smoke come saudis got hyped guy on the speakers like him believe it how is he making all this money but we're like they legit give us bottle service so whatever way one and was in these bottom and Sprague sit there in the VIP section drink in a Fiji blocker all. But then it was just it was a good luck let's say Sprague went a little too hard prior to the club. Shenanigans I mean are curious about springs wardrobe go into a high class Vegas nightclub didn't know we would dress shirts we class cash while it could yeah yeah we clap our we ask them before we needed a jacket they said no I some probably just in case that we began with we did OK our bedroom probably you know he was on prepared for firm Lynch's. Winning okay well let's see that is true sticks are different circumstance is I didn't have somebody yes. Super cash go to the clubs see cash knowing it was like I can't even begin to tell it like the guys that invited us out they were all on some odd it was it was so fun to like be a little party would guys from different parts of the country again build those relate we are party were guys in New York we got the hard core nick standing hardly dry and jets fans or all pissed off and certain celebrity Friday night and we got their I can't name names for certain reasons but we met a certain celebrity. And basically the first lining drops his. They're boys them off the wagon it's like oh god bill I don't know OJ committee told us he was like five years so we're we're just like all know this is not a great star power is gonna kind of sit around and wait for maybe to down false story well and then what happens is said celebrity goes with us we go and as a group into the club it was a great time it was I mean it to the nines was perfect. But basically we we had a couple individuals Telus the next day how much they hated said celebrity. And it was the most East Coast reasons I've ever heard in my life so great man it was so great why didn't you like blob of why any goes. He wouldn't look mean the guy what do you think you walk at sought re pro Manhattan made out of clay and that was just it was perfect grizzlies G Smith the guys from Florida were awesome guys in New Jersey Ross and the guys to New York Ross some the other cool part about the weekend too is that we saw an extremely drunk Jim duplicate we did Jim clone like it right was out of left field just Jim want to walk rolling around the floor at Caesars like holy smoke stack guys had a long day I was trying to because I met. Joseph Montana too so we mean maybe there's a quarter rectangle now we know about eight Sprague got stiff armed by Joseph Montana odds say the Joseph Montana story later today I still have Chris Farley ought to know. I'm not around 90. Or I don't Super Bowl. No no oh very cool member of that game winner did Taylor was an awareness get terse. No he wasn't actually a half fake advertisement in Apple's featured so we saw Montana and later on that night der -- we saw plenty. And like we saw on the we're both gonna like the rest Jim put it. But I say right now we're gonna hold you get this reference as we obviously a lot of listeners are underage. You know the end of like Mortal Kombat the video game. Right before you knock the guy out and they're doing like this stand up this circle and it's like feed issue that was Jim and you know that references that makes no I didn't play video games sorry well. That's what Jim Talent it looked like he was always looking to be finished just leave it like that some zero when it came in with an upper cut and jump on Q what did you rebels in the ground red does that author would have come flying all right we're on very little sleep but we have got a great radio program today we got our Super Bowl we got a super left to my friend we do and also. Disappointing games yesterday very discipline means let's talk about how disappointing the playoffs have been in the NFL. And abetting angle because we were at the sports book at Caesars is a betting angle that blew my mind that a read about it. On the plane will bring nineteen exits durden Sprague happy Monday everybody grunting may be the fifth one thing we left out of we left out actually a lot but just. A couple one observation I made and I notices Friday it's not like it shocked me I just couldn't believe how prominent if I was like I did my mind think it would be is big is it was. I honestly felt like for every. Three to four women. One of whom was at least a hope. Yeah that sounds about right is that a good. Ratio is I cannot help especially when you get late in the night at the casino I mean they're they're looking for clients they are yes you're not sitting there by yourself looking like death claim penny slots for no reason I type but gap pointed out a woman last year full and anybody learn high priced high heels and she's over their plane in the corners sly I looked in Iran might yeah I'm sure you're down year by yourself dressed like that if to play the quarter slots it is it is. Funny how you can so easily lose track of time in Vegas it really is in now or decide mend a mode now where I got to detox for at least two weeks. Well I'm not our sit down and away from everything Intel's Super Bowl Sunday that's my next goal to have my next beer is super bulls a day you also word beast before we get into the games I just wanna mention to the the people out there yeah. You were an absolute. Tanks and when I mean my that is on Friday aside from travel either ten drinks we had at the airport and two on the plane at the two we got to the room. And I vodka and squirt. So dirt probably thirteen drinks in the no throwing up. And when we go to the club he gets more drinks because it's vital service he's taken advantage. And you somehow or able to hang with everybody. Else despite the fact you couldn't open your rise you got to go big you got to go home M. There was there was the moment after we left the nightclub on Friday night we left the nightclub probably like 3:30 in the morning and then we went out to the blackjack tables of course 'cause one out of yeah that's a good idea until Gamal tell 5 AM I did finally get I hit that wall or was like OK I don't think I'm making any sense right now like a right yeah internally I like all right like it was kind of a reflective let's look at the mere here for a second dirt we should probably go up to the room yet so that's a -- lasted about two hours out there and I think you know you're probably get looks like all right there's no way in hell I'm standing straight up without swaying right now. I'm not speaking English. Let's call tonight so I just want you to show up for lack is that that you're tank on Friday hey thanks man I've been prepping my body for this for a long time it was a lot of fun first experience for me in a sports book at Caesars that was absolutely amazing at caesar's sports book on the better ones erroneous or as a great fantastic it was it really was it was really cool we watched the games is a little bit on the Brad with the guys we -- with they have like these. Just sick ass weeks that you see in movies right so we watched the first game up there. They got room service it was is a great time wind and I lost my first vet so badly it was like Kate is anybody else wanna go down only some money on the AFC game I need a little lag that one and so we went down there laid some Mattson they're gonna sees free drink tickets and so we're just you know give a little saucy in lane some money watch sports who everybody else. And I've come out of disappointed disappointed that and you begin to say about those games were terrible awful like I was so pumped to have a couple of good games can you just looked at the matchups and it felt like if it was just gonna come out of wire. When you thought Green Bay or Atlanta would win or Pittsburgh or New England that I just I did not see. A two blowouts and that is even the case for one of the bigger bets that was placed over the weekend. And talking to people was the tees are best as you can bet the points right up to about twelve in both games. That's a lock in no way one of these teams is gonna lose by told some guys got it to thirteen if they want right Alessio if you wanted to go all the way up and and really I mean when you start with the NFC game. EEU just kind of got the sense right away by green they had their chances early on Atlanta jumps all from seven knots and Green Bay misses a chip shot field goal. Then it's tend not to them what rip taos ski the full bath falls on the seven yard line and that was it I mean it is in that game could have gone completely different how Green Bay. Made the field on the first drive say rip Kelsey doesn't fumble. You're looking at a 1010 tie probably at the end of the first quarter in maybe the outcomes different. And I got the same thing happen any day of seagate were lay beyond bell played what old ten snaps eleven snaps. You post is a best player on one of the best players on the field he might be their best player I mean he goes down matter early it is it is just Craig gave you a glimpse into maybe not think and it's going to be a close game yet and Pittsburgh Pittsburgh new England's difference. A lot of people were right Rogers in the hot streak that he was on and for obvious reasons he is the best quarterback in the NFL right now I don't know we can debate that. So when I think about that game I thought if they don't cash in early. They're probably gonna find themselves. Just not having a chance in hell and I didn't the other cows you fumbles terrible. But when you start off with your kicker who's one of the more money kickers in the NFL and this is a chip shot he had made 23 straight postseason kicks I mean they do just never misses and they are you started off with a missing just didn't have a good feel and also many wonder how the hell they beat the cowboys. Yeah I think the cowboys there is I hated man in Dallas would have played that would been a hard game for me to pick this matchup wasn't because the secondary issues dream they had. And then this the and the incredible talent and speed then went possesses on the op in the side. But it really for a moment during their blowout housing meant just for green may even be in this point to beat Dallas and Dallas last week to come this far yes it is. At a remarkable when I saw this that it blew me away I saw this morning on Twitter is we are getting on the plane kind of look at our phones probably. Aaron Ryder has now lost three playoff games when his defense is allowed 44 plus points they about three dangerous defense has allowed 44 points. Tom Brady's defense has never allowed 44 points in his 267. Stars it's nice to have that and it just it really was an example of air writers you can only do so much and ended. Ultimately. It was the injuries that people warned you about with Green Bay that I overlooked because of Rogers it was the secondary as you mentioned. That I overlooked because a Rogers it was a lack of a run game that they didn't have all those things eventually came back to Bynum bra they had a couple of guys would drops when they needed big plays. They had a secondary that couldn't cover anybody they did know how to size a wide open just every match try and look Matt Ryan had a great game but there are a lot of wide open wide receivers give credit to Kyle Shanahan for drawn up the right plays and but and then you look at the rushing totals Aaron Rodgers was their leading rusher with 46 yards and that came he had won in the second half that was like a twenty yard run. That's how we got the 46 after that you had Montgomery with three carries for seventeen yards like. Aegis ultimately cannot win games if you don't have a secondary that can stop the pass and you can't consistently run the football on Aaron Rodgers didn't have either of those yesterday Yasser. It was a ton of fun to bet on those games of the sports books you know don't know who gonna win the quarter who's going to be winning at the half etc. And I saw this story on the plane this morning as we're flying back. And I thought this was really interesting because Atlanta has always been one of those teams I think when I always put late in last three or four years where they've had that talent. And they got Freeman a few years back now Coleman's emerged. You always look at Atlanta but there's something we just don't trust I think as sports fans outside of being the falcons fan. Get this so courting Las Vegas sports books I suppose that the falcons went from 4212100. To one. Of winning a Super Bowl pre season nobody was buying inland at falcons' super bought tickets so they up to 201. Even at that point the sports book operators CG technology. Had taken more bets. On the Cleveland Browns to win the super more than the falcons have the Cleveland Browns more people ban on the browns the ones who gambled in the Atlanta Falcons I just it was it's unbelievable how that happens and now I wonder together really Shanahan the niners. But those players aren't going anywhere there's some speculation Chip Kelly to be a leading candidate for them to BOC which they basically trading chip for Kyle Shanahan. I wonder if this is Carolina Panthers like when we buy all land but it doesn't last like we thought it would or. Matt grind getting over this hump winning an NFC championship game kind of being in the middle of his prime the bad guy who knows how to break down a defense. Abbott talent around him is this the start of something kind of special plan. Yeah ideas and the way they're offense is cooking right now it's this is hard to see anybody stop and crime and they have weapons all over the field the offensive line has been great they got two great running backs and Freeman and Coleman and in Matt Ryan relief. We've been blatant forty's finally taken that next step as a pro that I mean you can they kept showing the Staten I think I was trying to stay optimistic about yes because I bet on Green Bay. Was the game was a 2012 that Atlanta was up seventeen nothing on San Francisco in the NFC title game. And in a losing 2824 then let the niners back in it niners had a much thirty fencing green Bay's and that was a big part. Other comeback but. Matt Ryan I mean look at what he's done over the stretch indeed the end of the regular season what he did against Seattle even without Earl Thomas still a very good defense. And then against this Packers team which I know the secondary is bad but he didn't get a Tana help in the run game either green Bay's got a good front seven that doesn't let you run the football. So was cut on him and he was complete passes for ten yards a pop for touchdowns no interceptions you're close to 300 yards in the first half. The weighted the offense is rolling it's hard to see somebody stopping them. But I will say I saw the stat today that did the number one scoring offenses faced off against the number one scoring defense six times in the Super Bowl yeah number one scoring defense has won five of the six yeah. Well defense when champions patriots in the number one scoring defense in the NFL notes it's another one of those examples I don't think there is good as what Denver was last year that was an all trying defense that Denver had. In order to stop Carolina but. It does make you wonder two weeks off number one scoring defense unknowingly just had a great performance against Pittsburgh can they follow that up with another one against this great land off what we're in a lot of. People are texting and and and maybe we discuss this a little bit also gets New England is who's advancing to their seventh Super Bowl with Tom Brady which it's it's just an unbelievable run their having. Eight of the ten playoff games played thus far decided by thirteen points or more. It's not been a good playoff whatsoever you know and maybe your teams in it may advance your falcon fan pat fan I don't know. It's not fun to watch and it sucks to be getting that then the crowd ever would look because they were all gambling and they want him points for why whoever I bet the favor right now but as a as a football fan you're just opened for games that come down a liar and and these ones are both basically over at half yeah we're just not giving any entertainment by the way your ratings went down. So people are no interest in Green Bay Atlanta people want Dallas obviously Dallas tells everything but. What did you guys think and the conference championship games also asserts I mean about New England in Pittsburgh. Because I think Mike Tomlin was vindicated over the weekend even though we lost a explain how next. I thought last. Well yesterday I should say. Kind of just lost all sense of time I don't know what TV is anymore man my candidate silence on track of days and hours and minutes I need to go home and sleep for about sixteen hours after the show. Yeah ominously high life and kids give the president see you later and I am going to vet today tomorrow we'll be functioning parents. We do like to joke sometimes about not being on TV we are the only show at this station is not on TV on a day to day basis yes this is not where is he this is one of those days or I'm not sure if it would be good or bad a clearer on TV I think you're actually you better and might enhance analytic as you can see just how disheveled we are. What you wanna see the real you really wanna see is walking with a button up its. Good looking hair though you wanna see what Vegas does tee after he's three straight nights we don't we don't look very good right now I felt a little just a little vindicated for. What way is set about Mike Tomlin has the Steelers in the hole where Thomas rinks is a coach cheerleader etc. And what I mean by that is I know that they lost they got blown out was 3617. RE 670. They did lose lady on Belle really early that's can make you incredibly difficult. Humans are good run stopping team anyway. But I'm watching that game and because we had money I I was tune in the whole time. And I'll walk away and I kind of just chuckled. Because this whole notion that might commons just a cheerleader in but I not a great coach he's got Ben Roethlisberger. All oh. You mean the guy that threw one pick and one touchdown. You mean the guy that has had multiple games throwing just interceptions not touchdowns. I think we get so wrapped up in stuff sometimes when a coach or team loses we wanna blame just one person because if it's an air live. I think in this instance. They didn't show up there and play good game defensively or offensively. But I almost think there are spurts where Pittsburg wins in spite of Big Ben netting that is one of the all time greats. Like I said on Friday he's got a little farming them. And there are in there are games I would tells playoff stats by the way dating back to his first year but look at the numbers they might surprise you a little bit they're not outstanding. He doesn't have these gains of 334. Touchdowns no picks he's just kind of always been one of those 260. A touchdown to pick. And he's not completely the different you run the football when you play defense that's been the recipe for Pittsburgh for a while you're only as great. Org good as your quarterback and I got yesterday Big Ben wasn't that great they did lose velvety won that great. Can have a tough time beating New England in New England eleven that we judge coach. As the players and teams on how they perform at the highest level and and I get to criticism of Pittsburg because as you mentioned they didn't play well on either side of the ball but. Also let's not act like it's easy to go on a new England and get a win in the AFC title game like guy the guys that we are with this weekend are making a ton of fun I mean and rightfully so. But how do you bet against Tom Brady at home how do you bet against Bill Belichick hole. And and I stupidly did it I fell down that rabbit hole because I was Jason Pittsburg all season. And it's it's a tough place to go one Wentz are not gonna criticize Mike Tomlin for getting to the AFC title game he's won the last four teams. They want on the road BD very good Kansas City team played great defense in game. Didn't score a touchdown and one playoff game on the road so to criticize him as a head coach does he can't be belly check at Foxboro. As a little ridiculous to me and and really it was the same example I think of the Green Bay situation where what let the Packers Dallas there's secondary. And what that Pittsburgh down was their secondary Tom Brady's great he had a great game three for three touchdowns no picks up his resume speaks for somebody to tell you how good Tom Brady as. How many times has he thrown wide open wide receivers or get it Odyssey felt like eggs the exact same thing. That was happening in the NFC title game that he would buy a little time move around or release it quickly. And half the time it was either Chris told inner it'll matter whoever was. Was wide open down the field and then when you just when you can't cover guys in the secondary you're not gonna beat me in elite level quarterback and it does not help when you lose a lady on bell has that was the one advantage that I liked about Pittsburgh was having lady on bell be able to chew up the clock run the football run the football. Keep number twelve off the field as long as you can. And try and convert those long drives into points in Libya though played like intends snaps when he goes down like that you're just not gonna be able. To control the tempo you're not going to be a litter on the football the way that they would with them and Tom Brady cannot took advantage. And you say keep number twelve on the field I think coincidentally that's what happened in the NFC title game Matt Ryan exactly the falcons and we're giving number twelve off the field they kill clock they didn't run the ball that much but they they milked the clock inside five seconds seemingly almost every point is started spread without first drive particulates seven minute drive. Opening up I mean that's half the first quarter gone. Weaver sitting there watching and Karen Rogers had three possessions possessions in the first in the first half and two of army drove down Nate didn't convert a minute points but. That's tough when you only get three chances well in this guy brings a good point isn't isn't part of being a good coach can your team to show opened play well on gaming no doubt about it like that that wasn't a great performance by Tom and our by his team whatsoever. But I just find it interesting sometimes it will get wrapped up in blaming an individual. And then in other circumstances we give credit to a different person if Pittsburgh wins the game. I mean maybe steeler fans are taxing and about Tomlin but nobody else's right then was an easy right cede any band. So I think sometimes you overlook that and there's no excuse for Pittsburgh to be as bad as they were defensively. Green maze depleted to the point where they're playing secondary guys from practice squads. Pittsburgh had their guys ready to go they had I'm healthy they couldn't get to Brady not Brady has led to sell us his pro football focus. Dot com he has the league's lowest sack percentage when he's pressured now 10% because he's so Smart he gets rid of the football so quick I just pack it. It's got to frustrate you because that team. I just until Brady goes away or shows me any sign of a Peyton Manning like downfall. Why the hell would you think anybody's gonna defeat them. Right in this is even a year where we thought maybe gronkowski being out would be something that could creek woman the playoffs they haven't met they ever missed him one iota they haven't and an end lucky you know Chris Hogan is a guy that's a new hero now because of the game nine catches a 180 yards and two touchdowns it's always fun. To watch guys come from nowhere this they've been cut by other teams especially in the division in and they cannot have a game like that. But really it it comes down to and I UConn earned and Cris Carter were talking about it this morning. It comes down to Tom Brady and it comes down to ski and and just the cut the coaching staff and New England does such a great job dissecting your defense and finding holes. That it makes Tom Brady's job easy at times that there are situations where he gets bliss and and it's his ability to get rid of the ball quickly it keeps drives alive and put points on the board. But there's other times that he just got guys that are thirty yards down the field wide open because they scheme that they called the right play and they found the perfect hole in the secondary that. They get to that point were you just wonder it doesn't really matter who he has around him like Aaron Rodgers as always it's a little help on defense and don't give up 45 points he's gonna find a way to winning game did you seasons Graham post. No I did not. So Tom Brady has an answer Graham posts and he's holding an AFC title hat in the locker room and he's kind of like. And I'll stand in a little sideways and just kind of link look and action that's myelin. And to his right his left. Our Jimmy G and Jacoby percent. And in the caption of the picture I'm reading this verbatim so is Canaccord Silgan given where you just work this is what he posted on the caption for the picture. You guys might not know this but I consider myself a bit of a loner I tend to think of myself as a one man wolf pack boy the patriots pride Jimmy and I knew he was one of my own. And my wolf pack group. It he grew by one so when there were two there were two of us in the wolf pack I was alone first in the back in infamy joined in later. And nine months ago when the patriots introduce me did Jacobi I thought wait a second could it be any pressure I just add another got in my wolfpack. So today I make toast blood brother it's winners in he had a lot of fun to Jozy Robert Kraft except the AFC championship trophy I'd died miss that because that we were a little disheveled adapt point in the day may be assigned as don't remember a but it sounded like he was on our level. Yet you for sure by the way we side at the sports book how we did we looked each other and you said dude desolate areas now. It's a long weekend and I'm on but if you miss the here's Robert Kraft accepting the trophy and he had a lot of fun history at the game. With some liquid. What would you like to say. About this team. Verne now. I'll deal. Understand. I'll bring. We have good. Robert. I think that I'm not the president does everybody. Is Jay z.'s hello men they can't share I'll boo me you arrow man who'll that is so great I love the crowd knows you for Tom I love do they Goodell docked him. And he went to the end of Seagates he says it is easy no sauce in that speech to text and not all heroes work caves. However there senator Robert Kraft you do you buddy and by the way anybody doesn't buy in Iraq and do Roger Goodell ducking New England get this he was an Atlanta last week for the divisional round. He just didn't want to go into which they only got warning go to New England which is part of the reason why I I it's so painful it is because it would be fun to see a flannel win no doubt about it that's an organization that's had a lot of down years and a lot of down moments in the patriots had been there before they've won. There is a small aspect of it than it would be so fine. To watch him hand that trophy to Tom Brady and didn't forget del Brady all those guys to be on the stage at the same time and a good cap off to his nephew tour this year okay. Let's this was will push the ducks who were intimately org index as push that to 1 o'clock and I do want to ask is presenting that's an interesting point. I was all in prior to the playoffs on the Tom Brady. Middle finger Roger Goodell gimme this trophy. It would be his fifth Super Bowl fifth Super Bowl now a New England is one of those controversial teams are you rooting for New England. To win the sue ruled watch Tom Brady get Datsyuk rule trophy or do you just hate him too damn much to watch him go to the seventh Super Bowl. In try to win their fifth title track by three of five to discuss that next on 1080 the fan now I take right now at least half the casino has that mentality. I wish I was a ball or we'll show was a little taller yeah. Yeah I you do watch some people like how much money they gamble and he just thank you wonder even if you made really good money can I knew that gonna go through losing that amount money I watched a guy sit down he was playing blackjack with two eludes. And it was like the end of one of the nicer here armor. And this guy watched him pullout he's starting with just four grand which. Just four grand just for Graham lets big deal I think by the end of the he had blown through. Now eighteen and I'm talking about in a span. 48. Minutes yet there was a dude yesterday of black and the blackjack table that took out like 2500. Lawson with and ass generate hands like Bush's goal ending deal it was like slow down. How you have lost about 2500 that man whatever reported at a like two or three grand out lost as a what do you do good man pace yourself your body through the woods had won one more Vegas threw him back in this real quick there's a lot of the stories from the week there are some good cute cute story drew is that a good time and had a bad tired you'll appreciate this when so he was really didn't pay as does he hadn't won in awhile well I don't via. At all. I didn't wanna see he's struggled all of blackjack table anyways he didn't want to he Blake had no patience that we took is stacking chips. And very first and he can he win all led sat down put it in. Lost in like yeah probably three seconds yeah something goes well except that what the most steady. I just like yeah. 150 dollars just gonna increase active there were a couple of Chevy Chase moments for him or even have won Indiana night bringing in and spray it a hundred bucks and chips we'll have. And it had its regular records it was like dole having gamble this. And then he's like spray give me a hundred bucks every shirts like yes is Fred there's about a hundred dollars Jeff Segal we honor all black. Red red and adapt all right it was down at the end of and others party I think just comedy has apparently the other parents and -- days can relate there is a part of me that like honestly was safety stop you stop not stop Sasha yeah we 300 when times are just keep this in your pocket don't give that to me. A six car I. He came up to me any goes any detention fish kokua. At this. Dude are you sure you want the 300 dollars are you sure in half but if it's got a double checked over and over over a dead heat dropped I've never been more serious about certain things in my entire life for a Jimmy Floyd money and so I went from going no I'm not gonna give it to these you know what he's a grown ass man this is his money there though he did it on a sports bets though given that he did on ninety on a sports that he was Jack about his knee overs. Our Yan are you rooting for or against Tom Brady. Blow to be honest that he may I look I am a firm believer in big games that you have to have a rooting interest and I don't have one yet that's something that I honestly need to determine over the next two weeks because. I I've never been somebody that hates and doing the patriots I know those fans throughout their because of the cheating the success. There there's a strong hate factor with that team no doubt it for me it's more like a spurs kind of thing where it's it's a respect like they've done it for so long and Brady's done it for so long. I just I can't even find myself paying them. So it on one side I do look at it is Brady being able to flip the middle finger to be dealt on the stage and be so fun to watch. But at the same time Atlanta's been an organization that's had a lot of bad years a lot of down moments Michael Vick go to jail. They made consumables are dirty birds and they lost and I like Matt Wright and Julio Jones so. I still need to determine over the next two weeks who on the roof for good I have to have a rooting interest in the super. I'll give you one little story that I saw red for we boarded the plane did you see what Arthur blanks doing now he is literally taking and every single employee. To the super cool how can I be talking like janitors I'm talking that part time fast food workers Aspen a couple of chips in the falcons been write down all of whom he's he's gonna house and he's gonna take him to the suitable as kickass. I've always kind of a New England it's interesting. I've never really had a reason to hate them. My team hasn't really lost to them in a big moment like that so I get the Aussie duck out there probably hate some. Name and AFC team Pittsburgh whoever our people do not like new England and I'd get it right. I really wanna see him get that trophy from Hidalgo. And if Atlanta wins I no skin off my back I don't know where I'm bad I'm really weak tried to make that decision. But the whole idea that Roger Goodell did what he did to Tom Brady. It's just it's sodium enticing to me 1210 watched. Him smile through his teeth knowing he hates that guy and then take that trophy and basically voiced his fifth which would. Leave any doubt that he is the greatest quarterback of all time ever they want rabbinate and then also I think the fun conversation we can have kind of over the next two weeks is that like when you just look at player organization dominance and how long they've done it has there ever Benny more successful run them always seem to Brady in New England busing about that last night over the last what sixteen years they've now made seven Super Bowls and sixteen years it's not just Super Bowls to think about AFC title yes six straight right they've lost unlike absolutely it is so and -- in the NFL I know that's like you just you don't see dominance like that -- half dynasties for me does not have to just be championships it's literally the top in being relevant every year or the favorite. This run with Brady Belichick. For what 1516. Years now. I mean I think you have to equate it. With any other dominate dynasty we've ever seen no I don't know if there's eye on this Odyssey could be yet now that they're making him back to another Super Bowl you silly hoops is differ because they got more I think it's up there with that UConn women's hoops like. Name another dynasty yankees reaching the Yankees have some dynasty years. This is. Right up there and if they win it's hard for me not to think it might be the biggest in my lifetime 55. Super Bowls in seven trips to get to seven times is unblocked and then you go back to the jury that they've lost two in their remotes of the giants both games they could have won. I I I I I throw over the shoulder to Manningham. And a freaking lucky catch my guy who never played another game now. They about that that's exits and Zach tell far away they were from being five and on these Super Bowl trips and by the way allowed six and all my apologies a lot of people taxing and hit eight and they hate. I mushy honesty surprised because I you always know that's gonna come in I'm surprised at number of people that are root for knowing one. There is a real anti NFL I think rooting interest from a lot of folks out there that they just didn't like the witch hunt the Goodell went through. But Tom Brady didn't deserve a four game suspension now eerie isn't an MB of just of funny to watch the awkwardness all right so. I think we talked enough NFL let's transition over to the story that I think is gonna get you go on as we saw this on Saturday in Vegas. And interesting response that you had David Reeves the new co OC tight ends coach for organ. He's going to be fired because he was pulled over with a DUI another bat incident for Willie Taggart in this staff at organ we'll talk about that next. Ten need to fit.
