But to me it's an opportunity to really dream big I mean I would go crazy. I mean because yeah if you could spend all that money your -- and grandchildren and great grandchildren could spend all the money in the lifetime. In -- say you know decided to buy Jumbo jets and build skyscrapers. In us they doubt that they did that. In less they did that you couldn't spend so. Why not talk about doing things like taking a cruise around the world or buying an island for yourself or. -- similar crazy wild thing yeah the craziest thing you think. You might get made him a couple of homes so I'd you know I'd like.

You talk and somewhere between twenty and forty million to buy used ones so I -- maybe it's not that bad not a Jumbo jets obviously much much more bad. They -- maybe buying a private jet isn't out of the question the most sources X -- you're better off just you know getting a charter. One person to act made it 787 he says that I would by the saints' offensive line of Taiwan while there is this thing called the salary cap and there's not much you can do about that so. And those that would relieve the saints of their salary cap so they can you know offensive line to protect protect Drew Brees well I don't think even if you won the Mega Millions that you could do that because the NFL owners have these rules seat.

I've point three -- on Steve -- hanging out with you on this not Monday morning that's an electrical Tuesday just to highlight the fact that it's not money anymore and we've made our way into the -- when today is over. Are we will be 40% behind us -- Imagine if he gets saved 40% on a Christmas gift you do wouldn't it. Absolutely it's a Black Friday special that's right 40% of our week will be over by the end of today so that's a good thing ladies and gentlemen. We we already have tried to diagnosis saints troubles on the road and we realized we can't do it they don't even know what the problem as. When I talked about sending the saints to win on the road trouble support group but there is no such thing. So -- maybe put them on the couch and see if there's something going on their heads that keep them from playing to their potential when their away from the superdome. I don't think we have enough time for that so that all having been said do you think that there's anything they can do this week dimming drew said. We know what's on the line. It's an opportunity to win the division and the second seed in the play out -- essentially was on the line last week was an opportunity go to the plows and better your chances of winning that second seed. But it's really for all the marbles -- analysts as far as the saints are concerned. They don't -- lose the division if they -- discreet but they definitely will win it if they win. Can they can get it done in Carolina. I'll I salute the fact of the matter is at least with this opponent they're a little bit more familiar with film they've had some success over the Panthers in the past they dominated them. In the previous I'm actually this week bill the other previous week. And I just think you'll they'll be able to pull it together with the leadership did you have in the locker room drew also mention the fact that. They might have been over thinking things this past week going into Saint Louis so kind of simplifying it keep it simple stupid this week loosen up just kind of go with the -- get that swagger and clearly gay men c'mon admit they were -- saying it's exactly what -- the same.

We now use these beautiful pond in poinsettias are on decorations. Points said he is what -- that that is that is the way to say but it is also equally allocated -- to save points I believe we have looked as -- if it's just like when you say short lived diversity shorten lives it's technically sort lives but he said that as that nobody says people who say that while he's -- on that I'm smarter than -- Right right it was one of those with those phrases or words that over the years has kind of formed and says this other pronunciation and you can say either way big yes points said he out or points -- -- -- either one is OK yes we are looking up.

I think you gave up on Steve Geller with you on your radio and she's saints Panthers this is it -- this is the game. If the saints can't get psyched up and ready to play for this one. Then you do got to wonder if they have any -- really make enough playoff run in and run to the simple. Yeah and of course you know Carolina -- -- do and over again really humiliated in prime time in the superdome so they're gonna be out gonna for the saints as well they've done. Numb they've done well against the saints in the past like a census 20063. And four at home against the bill. Three and four against the saints of the saints are three of course. -- -- Carolina that they Carolina's one for the Santa won three of the games in Carolina right side so that's the situation there -- -- Not an easy task but when you hope that the saints can get excited I think NBC's probably regretting that they flex the last game between mr. James definitely. Instead of this one although I'm happy I prefer the new pickles. I'll tell you what Vegas is saying. Carolina by three or three and a half running and which casino you can use to give -- money while south Carolina's favorite in this and but -- close. Yeah you gotta figure every team that's the home team usually get that two points three points because they are the home squad.
