And good evening and welcome to our number three of sports talk on the day to day where remembering one alone I broke luck hope you guys and passed away late last night. In New Orleans has battle with cancer coming up later in the hour. Off almost saying great ought to Manning will be with us and apparently it's jumpers now welcome in. Executive vice president and general manager of the New Orleans Saints. Mickey Loomis and Maine making yesterday at all US it may have Mickey is a corner and most of us aren't on decried. Two guys back to back Niki guys that wont wont longtime. Employees. Very dedicated and successful. And back to bag daisy is just tough when a black eagle fan I am. Well this successfully capture. Maybe step for the week as we've ever had and and mention sad news that then that's first for Serb it. Pay what you cannot help but remember hokey and get a laugh if he'll continue weekly cable news of organic they have great memories of him and look we we began your winter meetings and in this morning. You know we began I remember no Keyon and we had a few days of these stories and and then boiler until this morning from Jeff Ireland he he was talking about Okie and and just pretty emotional for him to. Because when I did know is that Jeff got his first job in the league with Kansas City Chiefs. Based upon recommendation hokey piece to the Chuck Cook. And so you know you never know who's gonna touch lives in in who has touched your life in into his. You know and it was kind of heartwarming to hear that bit hokey to you mean we've had just started on in his career it's home. Now make you what was your first experience I would hope Q was it through as a scouting department. Has given the background. Out of my first experiences when I was in Seattle. For the Saints and and many analysts mean this so you need at that you're. If you with another club in and let's face the Seahawks were in this I think division those days to clean them off and yet. I mean an end and the only game in Easter researched his background and then and has experience at LSU. So you know that that was my first experience is when it crosses neighmond and we played against the Saints a couple times. In those years. In the end the only guy in 2000 discount our step in and didn't do a great job that first year in and you know decided it he would accept any time we get video taken away people still be scouting staff. A home. But yet play years as a player I think it was five years and we did and correct me I think that would have been longer an adventure. Pretty significant knee injury. They at thirteen years is scout and hand. You know I don't know how long game that Dario on 161516. Grade. I mean that that's that's 34 years you know which which the Saints really as considering you dated desert. Do the trickiest part of him is well and a bit toward toward someone. That's the meant so much to an organization to this city. I don't make you look the city in this that you can't get more Louisiana and you know he'd have got left. Let baker high school an issue this thing. Yeah it looked bill Johnson and today was talking about. Oki is as a younger man as a player and and Kendall legendary I think in that area in and looked Kiki was you know bills I looked up to disguise it you know he's a legend you know as as it is. You know young players and the de Vigo excuse me with LSU and yeah you know it it was tough this morning talking about hokey pokey and yet it it was good to. Hum an emotional and the end. As I'm sure it is I know it is for you guys and managers say today for. Her first what you been in this girl's home. As well as his former team needs in in in tandem of pokey in the Saints it's. To step deal. You know making these day and I think. Calls and is probably a word that we all use it's not just because you know it's tumble with tall. College athletes a talk that when nickel and all the dealing with the media and you don't you got to be cautious now because a social media blitz. I do believe it don't matter what stamp was with the Saints stadium back to wait before you got there at the coach has it to now colts' Peyton. Hope it was one of those guy as the don't have to see past in Buena scrapbook. You knew he was one of those ones you can't worry about dig into no rumors on the go for another he would just come to Duke it out and then at the end they he was giving it away from me rumble on the all. Know that and he you know I think a couple things about Tokyo sticks with me is it. Is this man you know he had a lot of wisdom. At the end. Obviously he had a really colorful and unique ways to deliver the wisdom and yet if you paid attention to it just got beyond. Yes does that laughs. Jerusalem to Stokley would be would be saying come. The negative thing to. Even when he was critical of of me or fifteen more or any part of this thing it was never malicious. And it was pretty true in hand. And I noticed he is he just hand the club in the in the players that played. And and that the coaches that coached in it and. And that that cost and that that all comes from from a very hard which is you know you guys know this week and greet party again. Anyone this year as a unit. And you know. I'm not sure there's too many people that I've. Known for as long as he's known Hokies did I just never heard negative word about him ever. He's everyone's brain and in nine knows it. That you get a who worked with the money daily basis and his teammate completely. And it went in our building is gonna miss him a lot. And you go Mickey you know it was crazy he was at times GO Clinton that he was almost two brutally on. If it. And as I said I hope that's a little bit of pain as he gave me I don't. It Colonia. You know like he it's electorates. He would tell you love LSU football. Love LSU baseball. I'm not really a basketball Eagles settled acts meaningless and you how I don't know we him I don't know I hope the Hornets wind is his or her impacted all of hollers and LSU Cutler I hope they win. But I don't know much about it so its own act. We'll let you know this is still. We all appreciate debt and a lot of speed because you don't give it a lot sometimes you know. To we we and in the days with him and there's just a lot of wisdom and a lot of the things to be said. And I don't mean me and we're gonna miss him. I take into amateur and missing. Mickey Loomis Mickey always a pleasure again thank you so much in none of the week with a bracken Goebel will all opposed to a two. Yep this. And appreciate being looser team and it's about rookie Ian Kennedy has been a week and stuff we crawled. Look at it and not need this in the building we know it there hands. Are hurting for these two losses in and but you know use and because as well all the people that beat Helio and and get through it. But that keep these memories alive. No doubt about it executive vice president general manager of the New Orleans Saints making them as Mickey thank you Sonoma. All right and you know is that the team wouldn't talk about. Oh local mall Bob and we would know more in. During training camp as we all all the imagery in. I Mickey's it I don't know people really on this news that depth. I hope because of the way hokey tall and the way he broke that down. Somebody might break it down anymore gain seats they. Are all credit here are all on. More highly educated breakdown of terms with oval but the way hokey broke down he made it real. In the east understand our promise you can look at black books. In NFL Brad books argument to the media and it's an inflammation directory about who you can contact with an organization in the people who coveted team. And you go back and look there are very few people. There are few people in the history of the National Football League in professional sports is being with one balkanization. Nearly forty years as a player. As a scout them broadcast. And in what copd at the sixth hall of fame people he scouted. The dozens and dozens and hundreds of more than one to be great football players. You don't get the type of knowledge to pokey guys on got not read. You get that type and now that I've been in it in being out that he knew the rules from the statement the Paul Bear Bryant almost go to he scouted me. He went all over the country he saw everybody he did it when it won a lot of traveling east game a certain amount of budget he turns receipts in.

Oh yeah. Talk little bit and it came to me a little bit more of where your radio and then you would do little more warning your own nah. Pre season football but. I you know my advice to hold your. You know your cushy you you played the game do you record a lawyer. You know Hokies so many years Roscoe. In who's out there you look at look at it talent. Cultural more football at practice and watching. You know Ohman and gain credentialed for the most it just refused you know just. You know get in there were injured time student there and so people achieve what you saw him and hope you'll slow them. It usually is there and I'll losers of 10. Oh as a I'm like some the other. Callers. Like to Cubans expressions. You're not allowed them a couple of interviews quickly or great crucial though curry brick. Course water injection the superior. Talked to. Pit early this morning and shared a couple of couple mockery stores with perk with local people are. Media he'd be here in a good sense of humor in good good conversation. All the local news good listener to you know lead and they never ever tried to dominate there's anything you'd just kind. Joined there and give his opinion in India out there kind of just put it Greg you upload then talk about you know world. And I cruzeiro. Oh Coke Coke you're just so he's a good Ole Ole and I see him grow in the cradle. Hoosiers. News in. Man and then. You know our RG when you look at. You know you Bagram obviously eleven legend here but also in Mississippi. What you look go Hokies background and normally when you playing. Professional football and do it for so long you very quickly in the same place in. I think I've been high schools elegy Tigers. You know and things and playing in discounting in the radio. Insinuated that it stayed that long one place where yeah out memories that mean it felt like he's definitely. That's a good point about it really is and it pretty well either a low strike that quote home. I guarantee they'll we will hope Peter would America to fall in that I need to like go well like golly all the people. Is. That in broke blog owner would joyous. Believe he would. Have been had it. Troutman earlier career Gregory did play in a. Well all our go to Miami. He teed told he'd tell me what time that was a big move from baker demand avail. But at. The US open or Gordon. This year. I heard so it will be inactive. So cup news congress about it actually Gregory court folk became an agreement in order cut grounder or yet. Can't they'll pick course. We're troubled by they started some also. Note which started. All legal war. Until the rookies and create an. In Hoch who was Clinton only me pool ball shoot it loses actually she's it was an election issues at Ole. Story can. Kind of big and they had this I guess we will probably like he's had big. Perp the purple Swedish you know elation. And you know here. Oh that background and quit on news Okie laws. And overdo it. But and a you go it is it is new action. And should should reach our mortgage. Broker. So I'll let. You do feel so our guys. On trees and well. Quality we knew issues. But when it came in the Porsche Durham and a homeowner and maybe you give me. Lace. It lays on the Croatian football you know it is. It took you to go against them and you believe it oh she's single. Oh. Well it via the news on and you know in they have to Somalia now. Culpable it was soaking in court well knows top guys pulled it's about hustled completion now. I mean I mean mark in the league success probably. Only. But hokey and hustle and play election but the problem at her his gut. And then watching name the next few years and Korea where. That they shall by. Bob Hope he got. A reporter. Manuel and planes and you're UConn. Aaron Ward got. Went 43 or four years little girl that. At fullback position and you know it would ball and you. Georgian I think that the Hokies took it back it hurt Opel. Yet again as a few highlights though one particular game I think is against Dallas. Where he was out running a deep with a back suited thought had an angle ornament yeah and and I realize or two and Athena highlight odd and relies. Pokey was that fans like you said I think. He got faster. As a pro. And I tell you what you look and in and you part of this record you look at the top three like average per carry in Saints history. I think they've broken down. Could have like 200 carries a more. And Hokies are noble one the things history and how average per carry. Probably go. Well news are numbered. Knowing Eric veterinarians shorter than them. Eagles. They're go go man accorsi there was quite assign him to bear one. Of course we gave it in. In later years learning who's who entered terrible injured curry was good outta the ball but who's really good football Wheeler. Archie Manning watching. Just those in him listen to the stories brings back a lot of great memories and are by appreciative of them in the plan that we appreciate you giving us some time. Public and he Bob ordered Greg and courier he just indoors. You know there's enters dollar Longo. Reduced all the Manning's number I heard from. I heard from more verbal hokey.
