Maybe so but it was really the way he waited curbs this is how hokey was he at the risk you want embarrassed me for a gym yes. I and and I've really I would have been. But. In the way he approached readjust how matter of fact he must is like Ollie you know. The other analytics. Man now and those of the type stories that. Wall and I guess things along those lines I can imagine how many of those you'll have after traveling together. For so long in and really just. How close Susan relationships formed when you're when you're on the road like yell war. Another one we're travel and client a camera where we're gonna really doesn't matter. And hokey with we talk about how big hokey is in general Europe Europe massive guy Hokies. Not very big comparatively speaking to you but my point is that. If only we talk about his ailments excuse broad right India and why shall lose center. And so he got stuck in the middle seat. One time on a trip we were kind of dispersed meet Jim and Robert Nam were dispersed throughout the play elsewhere I think I was in front of hokey. Males couples he's back but. He got stuck in middle C into his right in the aisle seat was a very petite woman sit and she could sit Indian style. A while I ended in this in his seat that's out that's that's nice to us and we talk about how Hokies really calm collected that we saw hokey upset. So you know he's just got his arm rest and I guess on the on the policy in the east on a comfortable it's hard to do so with the knee replacement etc. And the lady says leads task monus on the on the show looses sir you you're kind invading my MySpace. So hokey. Hokies know being the gentleman that he is is like well man armed groups are Hancock can't help I'm kinda kinda can't help write and AM. You know I got bad knees and eat him. You look at his elbows and look at his arms and see. Dobbs and what does it is all that has had likely become pregnant and I ordered him he's an inch in. It's so she's so much room she didn't hit any style on an airplane yeah. Then on each year you obviously plenty room so she was unsatisfied with the answer. With the explanation for what he says she gets a flight attendant. And easily via worse and the flight attendant. It goes over Tolkien hokey kind of shrugs the shrug your shoulders like lady were 44000. Feet near what humid there what's applauded it. It's those issues she's what do those weary she was just trying to appease people who is suggest not a fight in this this lady who's complaining. So are his people he just makes everybody miserable when you're a plane. Just suck it up right everybody yeah just suck it airspace is gonna get invaded your flying in this metal death threat to. 40000 beat this guy with a bunch of strangers like. There's etiquette there you don't complain about anything anti white maybe that'd at a certain point like I'm synod confrontational that. But some awkward things geared down like one time this person sitting behind me. Had there carefully poking through on a mile arm rest and it how many thing and maybe should have. Looking back an idea what it's like I just don't rock the boat lady. What what what's so he's just do. Yeah. So of the planet and goes and Cokie just shrugs shoulders like you Arnold join a I would talk a flight attendant she was like look I just had to do that that Levy's on this leg every. Every so often she's a huge complainer setter but it was the only time that I'd seen hokey kind of loses patience a little bit yeah. You know absolute because well. It's funny because even I guess even airports. Contest and they could test the patience of a man like. EV like Nokia David employed men. Traveling veterans say that's why I always. As it's an appreciation for you Robert Jim and hokey is because when you do some and activity like that you know you have these. So are you lay overs are playing it's related news and hang out that term memories are made men into relationships are really. Cemented. Yeah we would cut up quite a bit and in and an airport and then you go do you go by really expensive meals on inner comes dime. Did that too yes no dropped absolutely by the way too we talked about earlier but he case where it was I think it's worth. Circling back around Cuba itself like Nokia had the most manly. We gained meal order the most manly nagging day game we would ever call just the most manly meal order. That you could possibly have with his due to being a medium rare steak in a double Jack and water. You ought to CME things be of food. At his favorite place to go every year with stint today. A detective that earlier accident was his favorite of aisles yeah it was stand today. And is Raymond James Stadium not because of the state it was great because the spread in the was all he's. I mean if you wanted me if you wanted. You know an carbon station several carbon states and so Oki. Which we can of the team we get of the bus. Go to the press box pokey would get into the press box to drop his bag and be out of the door again going right to write to. To the Gartman station line of love that place always loved Karl on the West Bank with him. Alia they've got they've got the best spread and they've got the desperate. Respect but it crab legs. Oh man there's a it skidded two games. Yet site I now I'm region. Is deep down and as they are fighting a couple years ago at this point you wait on that little outplayed by the you look at just trying to work a little hokey with. In the conversation although you'd visuals mute about on. That's something that you and him besides the LG connection chair I think is yell both have a bit of a dark since the viewer. He definitely. Like slightly appreciated. The very messed up things that I stayed there and our commercial breaks he you know you said that he is can that last reply. It got a you know you didn't wanna look like he was last beaters like goodies evidence of that terrible but he kind of be like. It's violating covering his now pulled the sizes. At a man I've just. Really I Missouri and thankful that the that I got a chance to work with him last year in that we got to do the fans in the pro. Every Friday and are really liked. Electing them. Carl on the West Bank your OW to dwell. Papers in natus is called the West Bank elderly the story. Between body payers in 08 in the yard championship game big eyes to staging contingent interim unaudited Bernama. I'd scoop prof and it LSU prof also retard new banking said it's six. The story came up did that Bobby there was talking. In pieces. In heated referred to Hokies hollered good on the football program I think it was. Recruit is so is Howard in Asia and that we got stopped just bruiser. Fullback because if we stopped and we have to stop in the union and I guess I'm just don't like given enough credit. The opinion you don't start alt that there could be high in. End up they did it was out of the goodness yup which critics Bobby if he's remembers did those things that we have to stop these bruiser. He told that story today on sports talk. Yeah he was the safety for south of solution so his job he told that gets a teacher's job but it did two news media with he gave his job. As he described it was hit hokey guys on no matter what he had to bond now dallas' hole 76. Yet beliefs so it. I think it was significantly. Not it was Cuba takes said the success think it blows. I was a senior. Right well well that's I was gonna say I wanna say he's senior around 78. Okay is you know he was in that 83 or 82 quarterback class or the big one is. He's actually that same year's Elway Marino all of them so. I think you console for your society says Saddam that's I'm interested doesn't that must have been accede or maybe. His sophomore or junior what did you use that was both a worry certainly afford even played quarterback marine clay court until senior year he always. Thought that he was gonna be a safety in college and that's really what teams were. Talking to him about originally said that's pretty wild man had a big lead that you play defense. Not that dumb in my the old man. Yeah and I would honestly. If you just said OK guys on Bobby bare body as a tackle okay guys on goal of the edge hokey. Right because of that. Now now I will say this wherever from my dad a lot of those are two. The user to. Two half. Min right here today I think I hope he wins that battle. That I think is gonna be soon blood along the way.

Which is that you know a lot of people we've talked about about via folksy ness. A vote he was the average man he was so relatable. But none of that should be made its stake in for a lack of intelligence was incredibly. He's very Smart Man Ray that's what's so funny about these Oki isms and plagues every a lot of great text about emerald probably read them often at the end of the show. One view of the average give me their favor you or give your favorites but.

Two excellent way I get to that yes bad bad perfectly describes what just happened rightly content. That the face Adam hunter rabbit with a hammer him for his lately who have let away and you get. Do you really dim past etc. haven't killed hammer CNN that that applies. He's got another one about. About a bobcat a telephone Booth mostly debt. More. Racy I heard. Or this is a good one to describe toughness. Partisan woodpeckers. Depths could be used to describe other things as well but he view view qualities that its toughness.

Leo they'll like him you can't go yet as you maybe. Chick filet MC ST yeah literally every day available now I can tell. You don't owe me an hour away dish I don't believe it but I. Again anemic number one new political tool to flee itself so. It will walk out today and it's teased they don't play smothered numbered. With a wall on the side note media. You've thought way too much about food. Gene Emery earlier on W well. I did and I. Don't think they don't. I'm trying to Buck McKeon got down. When he was that has not gotten him on the issue and when I went does each day. And it's. The people that it was. I am met cookie. Absolutely yeah and jeans he was. Didn't teach. And I can back up on that. The concept of the year. And Jeanne Sarah yeah you are one of the most positive members of our double coverage team and we're always asking you do director thoughts of corners somewhere but I you have some. Let the cut but I don't appreciate it and the amount that the middle of the Pacific collectible items. And you even deep down that did not to Wear it as a collectible item. You like that without him. I want him to not implant going out to the family. Again and he would immediately get. The Clinton about to happen to open up I'm. Absolutely absolutely I agree look he's got a minute. Now I'm not they do know that got him every day we used to hear on the radio all the time. Yeah keep that smile 'cause the few times about what. I have looked gene hears over and do because we we know you love Hokies so Windiz lets you sinister break. To say hey you listen a double coverage on WW well. Ten unity that the death count the public debt now. Okay herb nicely dungy. And you have a great night. Jean wherever body. And I mean if anybody out there are still listening the radio right now I would like to yell look up to. Is Jim Hansen says the hurricanes around him out of battle cry I'm wrong here. But you know somebody turned room look Dennis with the like going back used to say they'll be dancing on the table tops of the battle fronts and I'm sure I'll be one of them but I may do oh man this great stuff he knows that. Victor V. I think is maybe as Arizona and a 2009 divisional round. Aren't. OK I it at least you. It's. Hearing news clips really kind of really benefited. Them at least for me personally knowing that partners. I'm anymore that it sounds happier it's of these having fun doing his job after that was that obviously goes after a big win. In the bummer. We'll get to a commercial in my favor commercials from hi chip and then hokey here a minute but all the text line and 8787. What stands out to it is so we got a bunch of good text is let me do just rattle off Aaliyah of its citizens along bids from year to six work. Says first I would say that hokey it was that extreme personality that once you heard him a few times you made sure you would be there the next time forget the TV commentators. Oki was one of those little personalities that. That are as familiar as your uncle Joseph or your program much like Frank Davis was related. To all of us would strikes me is all the Sundays we would tune into gym and Hokies never called saints game. And all those times OK which call never met him. Would stop gym at some point and say I have to give a shout out in a matter of free news ill so much that a milestone birthday. Maybe someone who had just done it kind deed and in closing. Hokey hope she's me was that angels that and then actually the last part of messaging can amendment today they got only one it. And I'll finish it here formed comeback for a summit on those lines BI thought it was real well I thought it was also love the idea. Abide instead of listen is saints game where analysts in the gym and hokey. It will encryption but yes Benjamin. Now it was given okay let's be clear about this that goes is that that that was the main attraction. And then like 9519. Pokey was our Yogi Bear I love this idea have you in the middle hokey isms. This is probably my own personal favorite of his books I've never. Heard anything along these lines. These are a TO one. How he was on The Dan Patrick Show the day after the John Carney missed a PAT against Jacksonville. He said they gave was like fall into a barrel full of. We're not an ounce in your. That that's always my favorite that the bats are hot about that island. I forgot about that island a barrel full breasts in the commands. To be just the way he I remember hearing that and he said the time. On on our show one martians in. Yeah for. I think they. Is this one's a bit more touching on 2284 shortened suites is. A drive back from Houston and her Hokies voice after Katrina and I realized I was so ago. That is C commissioners from the impact he had blood to Bob says he is a Louisiana Renaissance man. That is as all of my boy to be like that. An absolute man look I think there's a lot of people who won pierce on the ground to really can be here's a good one from 0181. Sues after LSU game and he's doing an interview. And I hope he was asked what do you think about coach McClain and having you care of the ball so many times during the game I guess it is one of ragged this game. And he's the Texas says I'll never forget his reply he said I told coach Mack don't worry about the horse just load the way. At. Man. As far as quote that's athletic arrogance yes exactly game and don't worry about the horse maybe the only time I see hokey in that light where he's going to be out Olympic hockey if you will. Yes well look at me in this that while hooking. Is he deftly as we learn tonight especially he never. Acted from an air superiority BM and when he was in the NFL is prime you know he had to be. Like I got there yes exactly you don't get there without having belief in yourself is that he was able to Guam. Remain humble in his inner actions what. One of my favorite hokey commercials here to elicit. Big big big big big big but we didn't nobody stadium what week is it how. It's by a week. How happy Alina ceilings painted to break every and then hugging hung in Miami but we're past ten years. Why sports report by. It's he wrote that. Met him yeah that's. It's an exit to reform of the way down Belgians. Also. NFC lead. Yeah happened in Tennessee south. Leasing and have that that was way I like I think there's Gilbert's yeah. I think this is. The 91011. Stretch that was here recycled and yet they were and are like the bronze age you may be bad it might be tarnished its. Don lake view you're on WWL. I think you've seen and done them. I'll let you know I get got to take it in the air idea. LSU. You know English point at Jewish defenders. Well. Oki was the first. That he would give people. And you true you'd just be it was like web and full board in when he won the ball hit somebody I mean you eat you just deal. All when he was lead blocking right. Today about what he did for Charles Alexander that abuse of team loses 77 year. Alexander was hit in the Heisman voting. Yeah yeah Egypt he would leave a YouTube that state. And then you get to the saint and our member a lot more on this play. They were. Wanna believe I think it was in off financial gain and yet swing and he took it for about that about forty or means that the one not. And he hit one I weighed in immediately. And he just he took talks he is beautiful man you know ought. And he just he just late feel you know when he was playing football and. You know Egypt. He lived in the field in life he lived it. And go back when he was announcing and Tom friend of mine get mentioned that the current. On Aaron I'll get Franchione. He was he would and draft at the there was beat it to mean so active people would come out and do you apologize there you go back out which you need it in what you. Keep out voters looking to achieve this decrepit to. Solve it and act in done. Yeah actions in. You know oh yeah I think that the U yet he's he was sitting on the. It would be calm Condo around you know cargo. Hawkish. I mean is useful appropriation. I mean you know Jack as you know who introduced me. ET actually in Yucatan care. And so on. You look at me and corporate look pretty good. They want some. And I don't view it was killing all finished. That that you would like like you stop. It. Football and have a Tuesday. And I got in got you. As well Bob. And you know I think about it big gains weight you've dropped on he was so into. And you know you can you GM and Ford GM could have been. Deeply you'd it was it was a late Oki and that. Oh yeah. As we did at ground in a lot of people accident reference that ground that you would. Like you would secure. We wouldn't at at I'll take background now the. All buyout means it was great seeing and then it feeling is that within one Super Bowl can't armed entry Borger accept that. And didn't the end of the game mock key that is part of Chile you can just send state. Excitement you ruined ruined because it was like he was on that field part of. Be you can just feel it was pulsating you know and go home. On who he had been working. Four. Where if in relation to the saints at that point his entire professional life of nine had to be massive. For him also I really like great call Donna I really liked the idea. Of love talking about hokey in areas because. That kind of shows you the Renaissance man that he was embryos here EMC two there you have it. That this scouting near where real yelled bring guys in like Willie Roaf I know is someone that. He gets a lot of glitz of pushing the scenes agreement although he knew he would be an NFL hall of Famer that you have the broadcast airs DeSoto out. Don jog the memory with the crawfish Cokie also love barbecue now marine barbecue with him one time. He had so much barbecue sauce over his face in his in his eyebrows so we needed him and didn't care of me that's it was all. And Alec what's on the asset oak. They just shrugged shoulders and like I hit a lot of it is it is a musical. Double coverage on W to be well enough America. And so what's on the shoulders of number twenty but. He's the only gas through. Look not a big tackles three yards behind line. I was that it's going to be. What a terrific run right there 25 yards for number 25 to the forty yard line at the Eagles first and 1030 seconds. And a terrific. Terrific man. The woods had to watch a little tribute from Doug we Thomas channel four remember go to guys on that was outstanding. Doug if you listen man who has totally on point. Very well done appreciate McCain's. Guy came here row I don't know. And our young age he was in some of those clips and using physical specimen he's. He started the pitchman he could see you back in a way that's when he started. You know I think it was that to clean up litter prevent litter. Leave it for homeowners leave in their their trash in the woods. Everybody on the text line thank you very much all it has been on the phone lines as well remember in the life of hokey guys John. He has been a tough point four hours but it. Certainly glad we did this show civil filed out. Christian. Nothing but the utmost respect for the year and how you've handled this situation really everybody here station thoughts and prayers continue to go with the old broke his family friends.
