And he can obstruct sterling market decided to introduce some some wire by -- Specter jumped him isn't Martha's Vineyard -- -- Okay you guys don't. -- Man I can't do it out before you learn extra couple months ago now yes the object or not. How can you guys really -- The Yankees out there should be it's somewhat emotional. When they're talking about one of the -- -- in the history of the game is great -- you -- you guys American on the class is it jealousy -- you guys are. Definitely. Wishing that you guys gotten more baseball player like that you would like icons of the games. Yeah I think that's what I've always thought about the -- -- like that organization. It's just too bad they don't have any icons and I've always said that about the Red Sox. I mean it's been -- -- well let me -- you know what -- -- -- but they haven't -- want it is actually true. All -- right -- that's the Red Sox didn't have my best pitcher of his generation and then in Megawati has written a rod. You know I didn't object -- -- I I really nobody's threatening. Mariano Rivera says he didn't you didn't like you'd enjoy that sound just a little bit John Sterling things synthesizer jello you that. Didn't give you a little bit of a smiling and smiles. -- I mean you know and I intend obviously since hairdo and I would literally couldn't watch it yeah I mean I hate to admit. -- and I would kind of like I mean I would -- up to -- yankees and what -- -- let me suggest something like let me suggest something to look like laps finished probably funny because it is now. You forget about it because of what can I suggest you you don't hate to that at all. You couldn't be more proud to admit that you were crying last night you don't hate to admit it you're not ashamed and embarrassed you've been waiting all day to find the perfect spot to tell everybody that you decrying last night like maybe you've been waiting all luxury here was emotional.

Why would you a lot of people what it says it won't let people edit page it's it is an -- in Atlanta -- up to what everybody to repair or they choose to forget. Is when the commissioner. Out the memo to all the loose. About where they were music -- trying to steal signals not to be on the -- everybody -- -- so -- stop the patriots kept doing it. Well probably can't get in trouble we're trying to steal signals from anywhere else. -- Don you know I hear about it I hear you but you know this is that they we were talking about this during the break. You let your letting them win yeah you can't get it is gave. It's indefensible. You you can't win you can't if it's a debate that you cannot win if you are. If you're sitting down with that -- patriots fan in -- arguing with the Steelers fan or a giants fan or anybody else. You're having an intelligent football discussion. There's a point.
