Now it's Tommy chalker WW LA MI famine dot com so I take Betsy the boxer for a walk yesterday limit before kick off because I wondered if they haven you know issues tired and at sixty pounds of boxer sleeping on top of me but that's okay shall and you watch a game. Om and man I'm just notice in the azalea is in bloom and everything else and it's early February GAAP. So is so long as it's a spring for a long time in schools Bonnie. It's okay but but I went and I get this the is everything's gonna move sloppy on I mean. We better not I don't want summer's started in March.

Which will be. Like it's been as the fifth district yesterday dropped off my payment and I saw the Azeri is discreet in his garden over there. Omnia summit is when he texted this in and I found it funny. From given the loyalty of saints fans and it's as common diehard saints fans season ticket holder from the beginning. But I would trade Drew Brees for Tom Brady in a heartbeat really. Would you. Pool. Up I think I put him in the same company. On avoid trade one for the other the would you trade him. I don't know. Are really don't know I think. Reading might be a tad younger but they're both pretty much in the same age range yeah embrace double height advantage thing that I think helps them out again at college away like cult layer let me know what you think 260187. Meehan. Who wants to but this kid in. At a location in Africa it. I don't take a break ghetto was together and are tracked. And I'll tell you about it and yeah sometimes you see things and you see a picture of somebody and it seems and I'm not trying to get. Model in the year but it seems as though they're looking right actually you know I mean. And there's a connection with them and you felt this a deal because as for seventeen year old kid killed himself. I feel so bad for his parents and I think it's that this could have been avoided. So easily if somebody what did you scared. And it really did strike me emotionally pumped up ready jaguar opinion poll and hang on bam bam your coming up next. Bam bam.

On do you take joy in Atlanta losing the big game. And 66 there's 68% of you are saying yes 32% are saying now. And when he comes the MVP in Tom Brady was the MVP of the game. It's funny because right is Joe Buck was saying he and go to whatever it is MVP got whatever. And cast your vote. At that time Matt Ryan cleared away it was the MVP of the game. But then things changed oh how they changed very very quickly. And somebody texted him and said would you trade. That they've been a saints fan since the beginning season tickets that are at least that's what the Texas and and that they would trade Drew Brees in a heartbeat for Tom Brady. And that's the only way you'll get another Super Bowl trophy. And you know I'll see you after you watch that game yesterday do you think. The Drew Brees Sean Payton partnership will present. Our will result in gain another Super Bowl trophy. So look at new crystal ball and let me know because I'm looking at Belichick and Brady last night and day in his sooners Brady retires Belichick scan eagle finish and that's I think so I do though is MA bam bam wants. Good morning. Yeah I'm gonna monitor you left dodge and name. I'm an old guard migrate. I'm an old guy objective expert back in and day I used to be you know we damn it to be a champion. And that put it childlike or not it aground gram weight you damn damn Palmer. That may OK should absolutely. Would you wanna say. What I wanna saying is that they've been and it re airs. You know one man got major game. And you ought winter overeat when he went and as simple vote count more common agent. All of the hold of a gene map it and just like gory and ballot check. It's a game operative yeah AB average voters. Didn't I must say I did district always man oh god really helped me warn tramp and cheer. You know it always did Jeanne thank. And I believe you're on an am that while while. And it's not to go. Well in terms of team you know and Jerry signed tell somebody did a bit about this how. Some teams changed players so often in baseball happens in football with free agency. That really you cheering for the uniform does it's not the same people letter and it. Any idea here number eighteen and number eighteen is somebody different than it was last year and somebody different than it was the year. Page are decayed bobbled it nowadays. But good and a proper actor no football really got some excitement last night candidate straw what it's all about. They hung in Indian change it to a puppy bowl 81 quick question band and the formula I don't know. Some other news over the week and graduation of Morton Anderson we placed a called in the CD's come on. That's what wired radio yes man in here until I heard it on WW well mean that excite me mourn anything I've heard long long time. I thought on it is awesome and the saints also announced Friday thing was that they're not going back to the green briar easing them make a difference. I acknowledged. I'm concerned I think he ought to play the out of practice here in New Orleans. Lessons and they're not door to the green briar so estate practice here do you think that'll be better. It'll difference here at W. It. Yes I have but amounts and in terms of us being entertain a timeout success of the team. Well that I. And that go back to all play as human honored fortunate you know you saw it yesterday in a mandate came out and mean it wasn't completely apart ought branch. But they would give inquiry like Shaq can't type in an apt to act and more in the pocket. You noted that automate completion in. Between or you can make a complete. And I think some of that was some adjustments to really notice stone idol and I'm able to get a thank you bam bam. Thank you I tell pebbles time trying. Like you never heard that before aids when he won more when we come back to six 187 he opened lines. You may call talk about the Super Bowl did you watch the whole thing or did you bailout. Your feelings on the saints not going back to the Greenbrier do you think that's gonna make a positive negative or no difference at all. And would you trader who do you think the saints have the better chance of going to another Super Bowl. Tom Brady or Drew Brees. Eight when he won nine coming up now on here's traffic on W here river ridge tire under the W out morning. On the good game. I so want that are saying bill these pro game. Our it was one of those in game one scene one man put it seemed on the back. And carried him across the goal line because that team was. The bought and gain New England was going well. Could not do anything right at me. And at some point Grady. Cause it to change you know the and nearly one pick up their everyone played that. And I think dances on and that everybody can learn a lesson in life and again I'm not trying to be overly sentimental here but it. Don't ever give up hang out and there be positive be supportive of everybody. It's daylight Tom Brady a lot of people hate him I I think he's a class guy I think he's I you know one LT is something else about the slate gate. I don't think it makes a damn bit of differences the balls under inflated over inflated what had via. I think he's so he's good enough we're in and maybe they were I don't know but I don't think it would have made a difference I really don't. Did you hear the boos that Goodell got. The ceremony after the game in awarding the trophy. I get up at quarter to force a no I'm pretty well turned it off a serious. And there's some who was it scored white I think was guy's name yeah. The callers. There would. And used it and you know Boston. That causes fans were the only hack out of him. And then like a light switch it stopped land owner Robert Kraft. Got up to the Mike and everyone was cheering. A love to see that there's let me say about trading. Drew Brees who aren't rating which I would a done to lead. So it as a team gained so much depends on the team you can't pick one guy very often. I think druse is very very good player who I would trade Tom Benson. Accurate coach I'd trade management. By the in the that and young man might betray the sands because. Irritates me about things then it is we support our team when it's that bad bad team. I don't believe in. I believe that you support. That team when it's getting better at like a restaurant in your neighborhood. The worst restaurant you labor ever aid. The UT going back there because it's your neighborhood restaurant. Idol wait until it gets better and I'm not want to support them a bit. That does. The saints do badly in part because. They have support regardless of whether they do badly you do well. So. You do you know what I don't do yet again today I'm glad you call but really disagree with yeah he's a professional athletes and and you know it is the NFL it was a very close knit fraternity. And if not for the general public within themselves I don't think at any point Wednesday. Mickey Loomis. Sean Payton Tom Benson you know they'll meet each other and see each other meetings I got to believe. Just for example as we put this in my mind when I Som the owner of the falcons from. Blank. I think his name is blank yeah. Arthur Blank on the sidelines he was up and press likes dancing in any was down on the sidelines with I guess it was his wife or daughter on Yahoo! was. And they weren't so happy. And I thought about. Mr. Kraft up in this stadium millenium stadium when they showed you in his box and would call him by his first name phenomenal ones. Com and I just think that at some point. Kraft seems to be a very. Classy guy but at some point there's going to be a little bit of Robin it and with author Arthur Blank in a way but anyway I think it's such a competitive thing I think the saints are doing everything they can. To win. I think Vegas and salary cap problems they they've made some terrible personnel decisions. And that seems like we Belichick does not do that he's pretty much GM coach everything. And he knows man eating here and I'm when he needs to worry when it's time any brings in people and nobody knows and they. Take care of it and a lot of Mel issue players my text comes in and sedan as Tommy if anybody knows but winning its bam bam Palmer. He used to do a victory really with one hand on the handlebars the other with the peace sign. Skaggs pretty nine disarmed him and amber might say some miles I thought of yes I was driving drop on the house note the fifth district Betsy and I'd taken a ride Betsy of course you know Betsy the boxer. Hash tag Betsy a boxer. And passed by a homes and Berman highway I guess. Right we're Joseph McKnight was killed yup and it does not sign aired just Fuller ribbon and Agassi I don't know the balloons often everything. So autism isn't there what is that like he had been green and set of dread. How would it have changed things was Joseph McKnight turning on a terror on two from Holmes was eagle on street. And if the light would have been green instead of dread. Would none of this of Hampton what he just kept on going man I just popped in on mine. Just that's the whole thing is so disturbing because as Renault just something like that. And we have you know all life saved and somebody not locked in jail on means you analyze what went up. And different Zeller million hits and maybe not maybe data continue to go back and forth down her robe I just thought about that she. Errol Embraer revealed morning and other WL. Pat hey Cheryl little web delayed telling you to call. I'm glad I didn't aid is in better a little bit but little bit day by day wide you had a knee replacement. Yes are you were right ago highly here we go it's time floor. Yet knee replacement. How long do a grant it. It. 20:13. I am 34. Days out I think it counted yesterday as 32. Are there are there is a very painful listening where you got I used to each employee healed back to you but. It's now painful then a therapist bends it ended hurts but I'm more I'm telling him a song does that eventually go away Cheryl. Detective lob and I mean believe me I have come pick it from from me I'm 61. So I had it when Allah I. That Gator on the white. Yeah act and I'll bet well I yes sir. And Harry what. Heart. Seriously it. Yet so I notice you don't want I notice it's different kind of hurt where it's stronger and I am of better support than I did before and it hurts in some different kind of hurt does going to put it -- joins say about the saints' drew quick. OK you know plant collar I don't know Whitney during and it caught it but I caught the acting goal. Yeah he said the governor are on you wait and helpful at bat I am emeritus at white. Do right away at our back. And what may and a you'd date let them. We have. He got Derek Charlie as your quick you said you're how old. Why we're talking last week and the do a lot of things in here about dom cars and boats in front yards and everything. This ad by the EU and what it at one point in your life have bothered you and not now because of one point in my life. That would have bothered me in now I think I'm you know the point where realize what matters and what doesn't. Well that. That neighborhood Allen bit is now boat. Loaded bust their loans there's a man yes president at that night neighborhoods get. Dutch I thank you share earlier today fix our order talk about overtime rules and should they be changed. Because you could tell at least cycle IE it seemed like I could tell when. They flipped to going in overtime and the patriots won it seems as though. Matt Ryan as he walked off the field knew he wasn't gonna touch the football again and I realize defense. Should've. Maybe stepped up and stop them and any would have had a chance but. They changed it after the saints beat the vikings right is going IE can't win with a field goal anymore it's not fair. Who do you think has the better playoff idea college football where of these spotted at the warning in a get four plays. Or professional football when we don't know how that works all of down patriots had to do yesterday in overtime was score the touchdown or whatever team scores offers such down and as they a lot of times maybe comes down to coin toss and if we've already. Made the adjustment with the field goals should we go ahead make the adjustment and from. Give everybody a possession. And just keep going like that I think we're doing a show when they're now more on. On joint replacement. Because it affects a lot of baby boomers and some money just texted in. And said whenever I mention it which pain is worse before or after knee replacement. It's different it's very tight after knee replacement in terms of muscles and bending in the in those kind of things but in terms of the does the searing. And knife in the knee pain that you feel when you have no cartilage and it's bone on bone that's gone sets Italy Neiman earlier when she says it's different. Com another one text here why were the rules changed after we beat the vikings because everybody wanted to see Favre touched the ball again. That's why it's called sudden death the best team won so yes. Change the rules back to what it's originally been for years and if you don't want on the score then play some defense. And I agree with what this text or what it had to say and that is. Right now I think we have neither fish or foul. And what I would do. Is either change the rules back which you'll never received happen because that wouldn't mean unifil would admit they made a mistake and I'll think. That's ever happened in the history of the league that they've rescinded a rule or clerk that made it go back to you know. So. Calm. Hum. The numb. Sudden death thing either you kick a field goal and you win you score first war. Do it like college where you set them up at the warning and you get four plays four plays four plays four plays. Or maybe not that if you don't match with the team does on the first time and and I like the strategy of the strategic tree of either take a field goal if you think the defense can hold them. Or. Yeah scored a touchdown and and other team knows that they have to do patent slide out the morning your under the WL. Bell and and what age do you can grab a security course a links solidly seasonings like college learn. One don't know though like quite entered brokered. Scored. Again object now I. And I saw an opportunity. And of course. Ordnance and and that's a problem at all. But a minute that you may you may have just blown my mind to hang on 12 and a wrap my head around this so it's just like regular play. And it. You know lot I think LA did even better. So. Atlantic kicks off to New England okay they school or then. New England kicks off to Atlanta for so they had at least one more possession. And if they scored touchdowns this did they do and if not they go forward on fourth down from their when he signed and you lose a game. His energies and. Don't know what you do that in mind is really. A it's going over yet one the first like. New England scored yes. I. Am. Holiday that's what I do said presented poorly but I like your idea of the best. Is that brings the kicking game in a in a play as well and and it's you know what it is it's an actual. Mom just like a real possession that that I like it that. Let. Me like. Yeah but like what you earlier that where you know one. Why do you pocket a. Did and that somebody said that's why you went out by himself. And when you see the defenders sucked in there and at the hands on the Gibson looking at each other wide and I like what that I was going on here and civilians. I. Thank you pat. Had a good day I will talk more we come back to 601878. Now exit around a pancake house talk you know it's and call.
