-- and and he still can at least poor and lower import or fourth. Fun team. -- -- Actual -- we'd still continually. And stewards reviewed WEP guys want to look -- Last night did you play attempt to this panorama a couple weeks ago casters. Try to score by winning -- getting the puck down with the -- to stick. What is the most creative goal you've ever seen Burt on. Just go with that guy from Ottawa. And try and just go with the guy I -- -- -- -- -- -- from Ottawa couple weeks out -- over time. The most creative with that -- school easier once in awhile against against Phoenix is my favorite goal here. It's like three or 420 drags him round and he puts it in that's -- Can't say about your Mexico. And that's a pretty and that's how let -- that's when the college kid with. Michigan at least likes. It was a great worries high up on Google -- -- look. -- It was a secret. It. That happen I think that's got to be that he picks that up with a stick -- Critical now but still about the bigger question is when last night. -- two points like they were not going to be litigated down two -- com. -- Is that shootout in. That tournament to you or would you prefer it to keep playing and so. -- have a problem with -- I was fine with them ending in the time that was our enemy but should. I don't like look forward to it like oh my god we can't get out -- really mind I get like yours hated but it's it -- I'm okay with the -- Last that was. Great but that was very entertaining. Minors and people really have a problem with the. As we talked about earlier the Red Sox -- -- -- lowering concessions for the month of April what. Is your favorite concession -- All this is easy. Number one hot dogs. Gotta have a basement go to a baseball game. If you go to a baseball game and you don't have hot dog that is clarify that finally frank. Well what we're open for changes every year you know they have different -- have different companies that are the official hot dog of the Red Sox made their -- -- francs. But if you have a good hot -- Amber what what what about what -- -- -- hot dog dodger dog -- your own hot dog from a hole and gentle but you can do that but I hot dog at a baseball game that's number one and two -- I hate the team. Especially in the show. About it I gotta buy this now away every week wholesale. You know it's grossed about it that he. My fever concession item. It's. Chip which is it's it's you know in the little bit since the -- it's in California here's chip which is -- one -- I don't know it to chocolate chip cookies and -- agreement between him and definitely to sports but. It's not as close a sport I thought that was what like three different types of -- through and -- is not that. I don't I got you on the chip chip -- Where it's whatever that -- -- -- -- two cookies with my commitment yes. Okay how do you beat that. Now it's not them that's fine because it the usually -- -- so -- and then it won't it won't -- now Wednesday. Popcorn. Park after respectable conference yet. Popcorn. At a baseball game on its own partners it's been -- it's good and bad from governor popcorn at the movies them. In -- go to that the right theater I need to see it pop and rock. Oh man not the best food in the I got as well that works it is I mean it's it's. It's released but the giants don't -- that outside the ballpark good yes inseparable parts at a ballpark I'd like -- candidates piecing them -- So I do miss the days of going over the garden early withdrawal vendors -- be outside with the push -- on -- -- never always grab sauces and a commitment with the with the onions -- -- I am not this matchup. -- No love for soft pretzels LaBroque record. Best concession item is the year. Period -- there's no -- it's. CBS sports are com's Mike Freeman is reporting that a current NFL player may be coming out of the closet soon does that surprise you that the NFL would be the first sport haven't openly gay. -- As a team sport. Of the four majors -- of the 4 majors. I am thinking about this for awhile fascinated by the subject and it was. It's -- that I talked about with with another shows as well Michael. Some not shocked that it would be football I think that there is this is automatic belief that because it's such a macho sport so much physical violence and it. That it would be the least likely of them but in talking to football players I think it is of all the sports the one where you -- can help the team win fine. Yeah I think I think athletes. Get a bad rap here and athletes allow other people. The clear they're guilty consciences. About this thing because we always say don't we -- all of that would never they can't handle that basketball McCain handle that in football in baseball. They're too narrow minded there's too much of the jock culture going on there. And we're speaking for them. Without really knowing the dynamics of the locker room clubhouse toward dressing room. And and really I think when I hear people say and I wondered do they really have the issue and they just passing it off one professional athlete I think a professional athlete. Most of the time they are so focused on winning. That it doesn't matter and -- leftist leftist put it down let's put it this way. If it's a great player. Then nobody. Yet even more so in the NFL though where eight I think for the most part the guys are more educated they have to go through at least two or three years of school where is plenty of baseball players had zero college play hockey players and zero college. Etc. basketball players a lot of number one and done. Second filly like eight and any of them approach -- getting. Around Rudy Gay guys and yeah. I may be crystal is not the best example thank you there aren't lying but for the most part those guys have gone through more school secondly their lives are laid out for them. Like if this is -- was -- -- -- baseball player the comes out first -- a lot of -- out all our clubhouse and I sit around coming up with ways to rip -- -- and -- -- While gave you money on the scene though they got to get a -- and we found. And -- with their. Sneezed -- Okay but -- he's handled this right and then the the 49ers came around rebuked him and they -- -- that this is not how we feel and just basically shut. But let's just say for example their best players that their best players were talking about. Colin campers. This for example -- -- only comic opera nick is -- that's something. That. You don't get to the Super Bowl if -- -- that the brilliance of Colin -- and you don't get to the Super Bowl without the brilliance of Patrick Willis at those guys came out. -- I'm gay. I don't think the cornerback. Be that lucky to be on the team quarterback has anything to say so I think it it also matters what you stand against sure there. In my -- and without getting into that she's too deeply into this. Perceptions of being games change so rapidly from generation to generation. And who's playing professional sports as their twenties. Right and and it -- we really do believe that that the perception is changed from people -- twenties and thirties to forties to fifties to sixties to etc. Carpenter is going to be that big -- deal in the locker from when somebody finally does come as an aside we've come a long way in journalism win it's a story. If there's a story out that there's got to be historian to three months. -- And -- our favorite one I'd love to count the Miami Heat have now won 27 games and grow the best undefeated streak in recent Boston sports -- -- pats winning 21 games in a row. Which streak is more impressive -- -- It's football man that's more than an entire season. That's like that's almost out of season and a half straight wins. It's definitely the paper -- could you argue against it. That it was all for two seasons as opposed to care they won 21 straight games. 47 straight in the same season and in the NBA -- the travel you're here so with football. I think it's -- to -- to give -- character because I don't feel like I think I'd be like winning a 130. Straight for basketball games are but the counter argument. Where the Miami Heat and we hate the Miami Heat here so I understand now most people will say if the patriots. Going the way. You're playing football once a week. As opposed to playing. Two -- three games a week. With the with the Miami Heat some games at home some games on the road it's a long 82 game season and in the middle of this grind. This 82 game season grind to a three games in week. You're who have you been able to put together 27 game winning streak the second longest winning streak in NBA history. Pretty amazing. It's amazing what they've done it given credit -- have to give them credit. But the answer is that you realize that the heat and ordered him to equal that in terms of the length of the season they would be to win a 107 straight games if -- I would I would do well and once or are -- look at how don't know. Elizabeth within it all directions seven historian Michael we can have this come about -- -- -- -- Or when they don't 170 in a row we can debate the standard is 33 games by the 7172 lakers quick question to that top that. They break this wrecks your looks like they can keep -- down in these games sixteen laughs that come back and went down twenty technically and the commitment -- seventy into the Celtic. Thirteen in the fourth quarter. And they come back and win it looks like it matters to them. In the their really isn't anybody out there can be in -- Full -- have been buzzing all day long on this Red Sox concession deal will get back to some of those little while but up next wanna you know what the Bruins did last night quote juggled lines supposed to be a big deal -- really help.
