Able bodied individuals would have a hard time with. And I think you would probably had that most on their people wouldn't do. No there really wasn't and he was just. The I'd I didn't ask him but he knew that yeah we at a time spokesman rodeo we yeah. An hour two beginning. And that they were this actually mean what we ought to figure out there. And before rocketing Wednesday. Because you had to send all your gear had to go with the saints when the saints left or you're not ready to get. Right at your radio. And you know you just need to start on on remark wrong on you know on cable and he repeatedly pummeled like Tokyo reports the US like. Elegant and the other thing he started and that's is that the end game that it didn't have to get trashed him. You're teaching book that the other areas paper everywhere there's you know distressed at notre retainer and Jim hokey. At all on the on the floor. Cokie clean up the blue he used to clean up the boot. I mean it was all of the spot as well we've got the air and Indian they'll let you make somebody get life. All right a mob or word Robert Carroll lucrative deals and schemed in the broadcast engineer. Dave Gordon. In that's what Robert and Tim did that two hours and forty minutes. To come back can. I have been anything wrong let them a little via. I've run no this is don't sound goofy but sleep if you remove. If you don't I really don't care but. Does it seem like when the saints give up. Big play early in the game that that's when they step up their play both offensively and defensively and refocus is that. They get about the life of pokey guards show and don't and Dave Cohen news for a Europe where they. And world talk and Robert Carroll though but I built saints game day broadcast. Engineer of those who have might not hurt. Hoagie at the peace signature rule on died landslide. Surrounded by ten million prunes. What is very close friend Robert Caroline we have and just come talk to us about memories. It and David Garland. I wanted to go back 01 of the stories you told about the the trip to Carolina. Media and leaders the short store on. Volunteers next to me the slew. Part of the this led to the into the black cat and he out so sick that day I actually a part in a different mirage and what not pass sport that stadium. And I mean -- this Odyssey here I was inside and the Carolina as well you know you'll probably be. Well after the game on. Beyond a little more human and so far has been towed. So I hope. I have in my has got to drive the entire broadcast back to the airport you know exactly apartment. Did it have Gergen awry he uses that hopefully which forced and what he's airport and stadium. Cargo back at them. And we get to the airport or an hour ago that they reject yen. And secondly Q license. And I realized at that moment that outs post op we get a license and credit part from the opposite the whole place about leaping. Had the it'll Beckett can't go back the election and come back to the airport so that pretty much load up the black cat that. Yet the phase Tolkien jam after all that and let's get a pretty good read. Elliott and set in which he had a picture is because it was ultimate defeat. That you know there are French or what Oki. The first. Years ago I mean we were friends but it would like European embassies and we hadn't thought much soul he walked back in the door the beginning actually. And but it will light. That six month and it was just in just a body how to network we're. And I am which are adult trial and the other is they get mile closer we were talking between it and my son he yeah hope he until. What I eat eat eat he's at all grand. Grand. And so pretty early I think we would love them current and while my son came along at about any time. Kia Charlotte and I have a wonderful picture. Of Patrick when he restore years old. Picture what the map and hokey and the men patch where and at that might pennies you know this out of that and Oki got a picture on pat pat. Hokey. He has always. You know after I talk quality rips him secretly. Last year. The yet again this has differently and so okay. You guys. You're a couple of dates or. We're going we're going on on sugar tree island lanes. And it set the strip club. It was just. The most wonderful thing. You know pat but stop talking about it. We dated march you your career to include the now cowboys went well and it's. Just circulation chip there and fortunately. More popping pokey and Patrick he was they went to hospital the other night. And you know he he beat tech art Portland had the talent but he's. You know if he wrote a lot he really did it. At an anonymous. Yeah hokey brought so much joy to so many people. And just by being himself but he was always giving always caring anything you had you can have any where he when he won take you with them every one of the few people. That really get to here. Every word hokey ever uttered during and broadcast. And we we yet and and that's that's amazing when you think about it with that people texting us and eighth avenue eighth avenue that favorite hokey isms. As anyone are few that stand that few things that Hokies says that just made it does last year passed off for a cry with laughter. Well update you. Yet if ever there were couple. Says that it's it's if you're on the BU you have a lot but. There was one earlier on. Your outlook on ball and he will recruiter. And we all went. On I. At the panic if they have bids Melanie ego that you re trouble. Like why. I'm quite a little court action and loved to lead good law. A lot of people. Are famous hopefully it's of people who'll payment broadcast. I think made Hokies so special that we're doing in and tired to ill and the competition the newspapers the competition of reducing actions. Or playing quote after quote and quote. A pokey got a shot. What made him and so special. You know it's basically. What you see what you get it didn't matter at the microphone on camera along or he was sitting down there. You've eaten crawfish would you while he was okay. And they're written I haven't met important person than him. And Jim Henderson and Russian Olga we worked well years there's just.
