Morning David. Let me say this right off com. Back in the day when Jerry Lewis used to host the a muscular dystrophy telethon after he got a little older. Yes he would check himself into a hospital make sure everything was all right after he set up their pro 24 hours with me. I am so tired right now I think I should check myself in a hospital can you guys carry me over the only issue medical center now were to retire I need this. It. I'm going to be like this window on romper room here. I've read. I G game. I had a I've Billy. I'd rank those people listening right now because they're ready so exhausted. Join us about five minutes once this news is off again as I gotta get up and start party yeah exactly so it is. I think Cam Newton yesterday. Found out what it's like to get punched in them. I think it is just my opinion phone lines are open I'd love to hear from it think you found what it's like to get punched in the mouth. I don't think he thought there is any racism involved because Von Miller was beaten a snot out of Lehman's was DiMarco where both of whom blacks I don't think that is anything to do with racism. From eight if people enjoyed seeing him beaten down yesterday. It had nothing to do with race that had nothing to do with him being a black quarterback. Is it everything to do with a guy running is miles before he really accomplished anything. During the interview with James Brown little bit of the pregame show I saw. He kind of simple why not me you know Tom Brady adored global global blood isn't new generation is a passing of the torch blitz like a young man. Haven't won anything yet hang on let's use all. And played in and did you know it goes to show you that the old. Adage which is redundant and cliche is. Defense wins championships. Offense sells tickets true and I like to see the ratings because unless you enjoyed. A really good defense in game much in the line play Watson corners then down passes. Not the ratings are going to be as good as they are awarded him to be too Amanda's been on and they're going to be grew. And they're gonna be as good as they normally are and it commercials I've not sought. Yeah I didn't find really much of anything I kept waiting. And I have a go big they'll be a good one coming up doll and never came the only two I liked was the Alec Baldwin won with Dan Marino now all right yeah no there's no I don't know if there's a little boxy talked to now in and the back and forth with the championship in the and the Oscars that was pretty funny. And then the ones who Rios there's mixed reaction on that everybody in a newsroom hated it I loved it where. The lady was again the sonogram and the baby moved every time a guy. Eight to two Reno yeah other than to read o's come out of his hand here amber. For some reason and in the baby followed that to read yeah I was yeah baby came out a seats away I think I think she grabbed it out of my husband's Olga maybe one candidate David went after Greg's. Yeah. I think the whole game was epitomized an acting Cam Newton was itemized. At the end of the game last Carolina disaster possession when he got knocked down. And I think the moment come and some quite sure. He looked like a toddler in the end zone throwing it he really did it was like me and and we're losing then yeah it's just not there's like moments a team game hate to tell you this. It's a team game. It's got its error not wanting to break. A terrible morning on DeVon WL. Speak up and there's more yet to be a point about jealousy yeah. It depicted the mild break. But the people you witness in the. On all the DiMarco did DeMarco Murray now wanna see a black quarterback when this thing. Yeah. It is not a black and white paint but let's be honest they're almost there all rhetoric and week is beer bottle. Racism Obama camp to Turkey to multiple indictments but peaked at. Do you seek hockey athlete and hasn't won any again that it would. Be either. In June. Those who monoline it is not it is. There are. It it will. And we got it on it it is important game. Oh and that is a problem and apparently it is a problem or look at the it and got elected. If he would like that they spent. And Amadou and his policies it just because is a black man. I lady called Terrell literally am I couldn't disagree with you more incidents like every time something bad happens or black person it's racism and that's not the case. Any other thing is that DiMarco aware and Von Miller are both black men punching Cam Newton and amounts yesterday's not a really see how that's got anything. To do with the race for me. I don't care for use white green Asian whatever you of his agent and be the anomaly anything to be 65 into fifty of my ship from China and not the point. Mom when you're gonna run your mouth like that when you're gonna pretend to be Superman. As Jim think someone said what the skins on the wall. But I think once you do. In a movie Chariots of Fire the guy wins a race and then. The second place guy says you don't seem very very happy and the guys as you don't know what it's like to win. And I think that has to do with the NFL I think when you really accomplish things. Then maybe Unita is as. Cocky as when you don't because you relies would look to get to the top of the hill. I just think. You know again I care what color is I think is a young man it just. It just has to do some drawn up very quickly and really it would be backed evidently calling stomach thing. And in some tax Tommy tiger talking about simple last night and Cam Newton in. I have never been happier to be more wrong in my life my prediction along with David Blake was at the Panthers would. Blow amount I had no idea how good Denver's defense laws and honestly I don't think the Panthers did. I think he'd want to team on film and you can know. What their tendencies are sometimes they put in new stuff for the the Super Bowl because again two weeks scheme. But when it comes a lining up against somebody in and beaten them all or keep them from get that a quarterback. You don't know how that somebody is unless you've played before on the floor for different teams. And just case you wonder every Tennessee Michael Warren feel compelled to tell people it's the blind side guy. Annie was planned left tackle for Carolina yesterday in some text about Johnnie Mae and sell new voters who does will join me until nobody. Nobody could bode join remains though he was told mr. Boehner. Tech is an am call to mr. football I don't think you'll find a bigger joke. In the National Football League right now and Johnny Maine cell Tony and listening to morning and WWL. And doing all right hazards one big broad gotten Mardi Gras coming up tomorrow then you know last Wednesday. All year old idea that we get my attitude going into an excellently. Virtual or comment on the call first of all the previous caller about the black quarterback. Man. I'm more club restaurant where you were brought to miss you live in and I had a conversation that ascent that it. And I told him much in the and it it ultimately you re. But I know one thing beeper went championships and I just don't put lead. Carolina all print is that you're at Denver beat. I think it's different. Right I'm not so much actually I don't you call it compassion here you know I think number one game. Did you order did you say you played football zoning. Yeah which you know I don't watch the film. And see who does what but until you line up against a guy you have no idea you really don't and a first couple plays tell you that do they not. Yeah. And you're not original mind advocate and friend of mine and it was an odd man out of one broke. I'll say that it would. Be only one he'll. You know so and only then. And you know about that is defense wins championships and really actually though. As bill keel that didn't would be. Much think. You on oil again a Tony an ominous feeble man here on now. But I think the defense gave that game to Peyton Manning has a lovely parting gift. All. Atlanta domain I don't mean if there was any conspiracy or anything I'm just sand. You don't Payton played well as a game manager I think which is not really what he has. But the defense won the game for him who is the of Von Miller thing was MVP. Is one quick story that part yet. Maybe about well Jean Tolkien would go out the company to avenue. And I was about to be based and simple. I'm not drastic manner that street and car. And that Jamal Lewis baker want to where's yeah but I right now from shell. And so that's we talk in any Tony Tony on and an assortment of people Alter ego and all they way to big game. A year ago conservatives that procedure after the game again. An appropriate method man you know or who big and a few are always got so much that you'd. Any outlet or at all in Asia my hand and almost a mole. Thank you want Obama trade manager. And had about a guy this is a polite respectful. I mean just. It. Let me say this steel like Cam Newton you know out and one cannot press conference yesterday. Carol while Russell Wilson if anybody had a reason so how did walked out of a press conference last year with the Super Bowl remember how it ended. If anybody had a reason not to show up and be you know what. It would be him but he didn't thank you Tony at your wanna ride to 6018723. Tommy Tucker we will continue. To talk about the Super Bowl last night commercials if you want which. You know grade of beta apps like get a commerce above a C minus six when he three hears that W ultra. Six only seven Tommy Tucker I could say we have the greatest audience in the world right now on some of those in the call in the disagree with. I guarantee because somebody says men patent Jerry sorry teams for years he's a hundred years old who cares of a defense finally carried him for a year dude deserves a and it is said he didn't when I'm saying is in terms of an exit teams ordinance and I think Cam Newton learned last night. Is not Superman and ten others in and then of people on defense it is eighteen sport. And is staying giving you the time you ain't doing it on your own way the Enron or not her big guy or not because Von Miller took him down pretty good for big man.

On your official weather station WW LA amount Berman Don did you watch the whole game David no and asked how do you get off talking about it. It. Listen from at the end of the game so Tracy Wolfson who I think is very very talented lady. You had to order to actually they didn't interview whether. And she's not as young as you would think she spoke on and is gone wrong with the dual anonymous actually escaped at isn't that deterrent as young as it was a second ago there. Or even right now. Or now now even now you get even now. But Suzanne interviewing Peyton Manning after the game it she says he's what are you gonna do and I believe I'm in the order right here he's going to.

Are caring so you know he's a southerner v.s can drink is BO breezes prayers right he got here. Mom and the other thing is. Budweiser says it in pain for that that is came out of his mind there are so hole. While Asia NFL player no active NFL players can endorse an alcoholic product again if she knew that ranked. Well it's it's a rule or maybe even along with the FCC I don't know but we can do as Peyton Manning something else and talk about the full. It's EE EPS. Every once asked a drive on the left side the road ahead your Peyton Manning. Whatever they do in Britain and a so. We're we're gonna talk about that this morning in something else I find interesting and Deion Sanders and after the game I believe money NFL network that Cam Newton deciding not to go after zone fumble with four minutes left. When they game was still in play for Carolina sir that it was a business decision figures you know what we're going to be back alone would be back again have another chance American a risky and heard here and if that's the case.
