Sports flash I was so excited. And I applied for a game. Yes you're right I did not get it. And big fat failure. And I was down in the dumps -- audit results restored folks. Things were not going well for me then I didn't really know what my future held luckily for me that very same time regular phone call from channel seven. And they asked me to become their afternoon traffic reporter and that really helped me big time. Abstract traffic let's check with the softness. And -- that.

Don't call him maybe. It's hard to. Code Red Sox lately. It's extreme -- Now I did that as a joke for that she'll -- to convince the producer to play at I'd really begged to produce of the weaker producer to play it. And the next day on Monday at a or call us some sort of big break but. It ran on every single show on the airwaves here on WEEI finally someone outside of replay -- but he knew what one's -- truck traffic. Let's check with a -- -- -- so many ways on.

Was not in fact real -- offer. So rather great -- and so anyways thinks artists snowball of reforming and all of sudden I was on the one line. Director board blaster in the bank shall know them by age kids who want to -- over at the -- elated that they. Getting help just like I don't know that I did not reflect broader about the come up I think they could get a little bit. Technique that's Johns.
