And where they heard. What worries lancet did did Drew Brees is not anything serious resentment and I think what makes me think -- to Sean Payton was going to talk about it. Think it's pretty big deal. You know -- was out there weren't that period beyond immediate camera belt around from. 01 group -- -- Implicated. And run. Attack. Can be honestly I don't know whether.

You know that like can't pay these and I note your question what about. About burglary but I'm. I'm different and that you know agreed that think it's been really are. And it happened that. That being out there on the practice all -- it would have been -- all of science and immediate. Some party -- body was really ache in -- -- -- growing gap there. But out in this you know market -- so make deploying these their ilk. I will say -- Because and that don't call turned it into practice but.

Condemned review so that new unit that there are a year ago part of civic there'll vital peaceful.

Nobody killed thank god did that plant explosion and we'll keep you updated anything changes right here on -- VW wells -- comeback on lines are open it's music so point 87 Neitzel 386889087. Media. You think Drew Brees could play into at least 45 that's what he said he would like to do. Bellini there. Team. Poor right now. Thirty. So that would mean he'd be our quarterback until twenty. Cool twenty niners. Some Alan -- -- he'd when he thought. He tell me he's 35 right now do you think drew could play another ten years and would you want him to. I don't see any way plays -- 38 but you tell me 39 at the most when we come back on that W. 646 Tommy Tucker fourteen of course seven trying to get going on this Monday morning August. The fifth and four of them move banana company it. And we have code were coming up in the 1000 dollar. You'd think -- easily Davis. It was a rough weekend and those -- -- that not even drink -- you know what happened I I saw somebody. Yesterday that it went to grammar school with that I hadn't seen in a long long long long time and she'd recognize me. Exits you recognize my voice from WW well she looked exactly the same. And me islet like 38 miles of bad road but it is nice the year. Anyway kind of the 1000 dollars Summers splashed past contests code word right before the top of the hour news. At 7 AM and an eleven -- we'll have another 14 yen 11 AM so let's do it let's decide this it is in fact. August the fourth. And I think we're definitely into the dog days of summer where. It's the same old thing drudgery day after day after day with the heat and the humidity saints get that. Pre season started Friday night about against rather of the Saint Louis. Rams and we will have all of the the action for you here's what was training camp all week along with the extreme saints coverage. It would timeout Drew Brees and how long he could play. Is he was saying half jokingly that he could play until he was 45. A couple of text them in command rather when drew his 45 his body like is like most people's at 35. But then there's there's drew won't make it one more year if he doesn't have better protection. Then last year and when it really got my attention. Drew brought us a Lombardi. And killed the -- -- forever we owe it to him -- let him play as long as he once. And pay him. What ever he wants. You agree with that -- not -- six 187 Neitzel 386 exit 890878. And there's gonna comment time and you hope that it can be negotiated. Behind the scenes nicely but there's gonna come a time when Drew Brees can't play anymore and I think one of the saddest things in all sports -- life as when somebody stays around too long Johnny Carson went out when he is on top. Than did George bland a blatant -- it was. Or the nine I think 64 years old George -- was. But he was a quarterback in any wound up just kick in the football I what do you think is the oldest. Realistically speaking that somebody could play quarterback in today's NFL. I think at 35 jurors probably got three more years I know he's exceptionally. Dedicated to training in and stretching and keep himself in shape but. Like to hear from me on -- 60187203866. 89087. Point. Do you know who Charles Ergen is. Well neither do lie but I think this is a lesson about fame and all of this. I occasionally feel like we're big shots. Charles Ergen is a former president of the DISH Network. And he is the richest guy. In Colorado sixteen point six billion. Tom Benson richest guy in Louisiana one point five billion. And -- elected different states. Tom Tom Billy had a Tom Benson rather really. Near the bottom of of richest people. Now Gary Farrell it's an and one of the Dakotas North Dakota. He's only worth 900 million but it's interesting how we get to feel and good about ourselves. And we think we're big stuff than we realized they're people like. -- Jacqueline Mars. Whose worth twenty billion dollars that a lot of us have never heard of or filled night nineteen billion in -- again of the of course probably hurt him from Nike Larry Ellison in California 49 point four billion. And I think that the point here is. Do you think money can buy you happiness or do you think it's all about. Friends and family. Because if you have friends and family. Aren't you infect the richest person in the state. -- I would say. The richest person in the world. That puts me in food stamps. Come on -- get a righted supporters my birthday 51 years old happy birthday to whoever texted daddy and Edison says -- give drew two more years is an elite quarterback he may play until he's forty. A lousy 452. More would put human 38. An end forty beyond that I don't -- 45 either but who knows 652 title at a traffic in -- that we -- -- profits. I Tommy tiger Monday morning as we head into the dog days of summer and I think. They August 4 would be the beginning and those on you on a Monday in I'm looking at Debbie WL dot com. And I see some of the some of the great things we have -- from Tom Fitzmorris hosts of the food she'll and I the good friend of -- this one what's the best. -- best way to appeal hard boiled they. So oh yeah in my when check that out -- Debbie WL -- common in terms of money buying new happiness. Once there's money can't buy heaven has been engaging short term lease. Another tax money can't buy you have been has -- -- by US saint season football game and it's pretty much the same thing. I don't know if you're talking about tickets. I guess so. Friends and really make you rich he's just something board peoples say I'll take the money. And there's there's when Tommy announce you've won the powerball and you'll be amazed at the amount of relatives. You have got the code word coming up in the 1000 dollar nationwide summer splash cash contest. In order talk next hour about. Kids die in in hot cars the most recent one. Wasn't apparent that left the child in the car but it isn't southern Californian I left the car unlocked. And three year old got trapped. In the car couldn't get out. And unfortunately. Died the kid's father woke up from a nap on the -- months and nobody really knows how long he was in the car. But this memory expert there -- gonna have on doctor David Daimon says children dying in hot cars has become an epidemic. Now on the story that just silly about it would seem like. You shouldn't be laying on couch taken a Napoli three year old is running around on attempted. But there's also the issue of is there any excuse really relieving your kid in the back of a car on a Davidson high it is it's going to be today. I don't think so and I don't think it's all about the leaving but it's about everything and -- them right now.
