ABOUT THIS EPISODE

What can I say about Tom Arnold that hasn't already been said. I loved this episode so much, we did it twice. I forgot to record the first show and Tom was gracious enough to do it again.  Tom grew up in Iowa and fell in love with sports at an early age. He came from very humble beginnings. Tom has six siblings and they were raised by their father. Tom knew that his father loved watching Bob Hope and that it was one of the only things that made him laugh. He wanted to make his father laugh too and  so began his passion to be a comedian.  Tom loves footbal and is a big NY Giants fan. His knowledge of the game is deep and the best part is finding out why he loves the Giants.  Check out his page..... http://tomarnoldcomedy.com       See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

So we have a lot of a lot of linemen just go on to to professional football and there's a lot of a lot of big people. Their Dad's won't let a play football because they need about the farms. That happens a lot. And our women's sports are very good. In fact, our women's basketball, what I was young, was much more popular that our beds are. Was Basketball Tournament was you would always sell out and men's was a little bit slower. What I was very young, we had six on six. It's they changed it to five out five after I got out of high school, I think, but it was six on six. It was awesome. Three forwards on what had three guards on the other and you know, and they had these you know again, a lot of us were very big people and they'd have forwards. They did have for run the foot court. They could stay shot eighty percent for the field and they they were fantastic and the games were just amazing. And then they changed the five on five to be so so the people could go out to college would be competitive and they were all so great. But we used to have these legendary well, the the the biggest when I was at high school and she was a little bit older to me. Google this, guys, but the biggest score in the South Sea thought Southeast Iowa. She played it melrose of Ravia and her name was fond of Dicks and I knew father she was a little bit of handed me, I swear my life and she's said, you know, you're she's joke. You ever told its not a joke. You Google it. She I think she averaged fifty points one season and she lived about twenty five miles...

...from me and she her name was in the paper. Als I she's amazing basketball player and and people took but but you know, she was the number one players. She's all state, from our area and and Nice. You Google it that' Surday.

And that I said you had blame your parents. But but we had these basketball stars that were, you know, and I that just amazing, legendary. That's who we looked up to. Was was was these women that just just average fifty, sixty points a game. You know, they's not many points. Did you everything, diamers? What's that? How many points did you average game? Well, you know, I I was. I was beat here, but I was. But football was a sport. I excel that, you know. I played order. What position did you play in football? I played quarterback. You know, I could when I was twelve years old, I could throw it about sixty yards. I spent a lot of time throwing the football to myself, being grounded a lot and but by football career headed. I have to tell you. You know, I had a when I was in high school, our coach and who you know. You go through, you learned lessons and the football now you got to be a little more careful with your players. But a guy named Dave Klemtt, who was the MVP at the University of I what. He was a middle Liebacker, very good. His next job he did make the pros. He went right into coach high school football. At his first job was a tuble high school, and so he went from there to be by football coach. and to me he was not that much older than me, and so we had a problem. You know, it might tell you fought. People fought all the time. I'm from a factory town and you know I'm the old stuff, five brothers, and so to me he was challenging me at all times and of course he would kill me, but I did. I was like ready to fight him at all and weak people fought all the time on the and he was up for it. Like he put a helmet on and go, let's go. He let me put it help on that. He'd be like, you know, I mean full pads to go. Let's go. And there's a lot of stuff I just I just, man, I just there so bout him. I just, you know, I just couldn't stop and but he also like they want to be returned by a Jersey at the end of the seas like you're supposed to. And I said, listen, I played this whole crappy football season because we're terrible for this jersey. I had not given his back and and that the next day I was sitting in in English class and he he gave in the back of the English class, sitting in front road. He reached up behind me and ripped it off of me and I did have a shirt on in front there. But like he's a Babiac, this guy, and he was also our Jim Teacher, and he just take eight balls and and Eddy Go, you know, because their towns fighting between great greasers and red decks. And he throwed out the mill that you called Bob Barnmand, but his dodge, well, graziers over there, red necks over there and bad we would just you know. But as I got older, he and I really became friends and he became the athletic director of our tout and Yok, he lived like for day four doors down with my parents too. He's a really, really good gentleman. And when I will play to the their last rose bowl against Stanford. First of all, the Fox who is doing the show the the football game. They wanted the person that most represented the college to come down to speak on the field, on the Jubble Trot and all the about the team and all the the TV and they had cond of Liza Rice, who was a famous graduate of Stamford. Then on the other side of field was be about. I was. He spoke and then, you know, and as Stanford scored it, they're like, okay, you'll go, you'll go next top and the Stanford scored and they go, okay, just hold on, don't leave, I go, I will. And the STADVERORD scored in the stadverord scored, the saver scored. It was crazy how badly we're getting bet and there is so words, believe, I go about leaving and they just had thirty five points. All sudded. They're just killianus and w all, what do you say at that point? But I said, okay, how guys, we got a right where we want them and it makes a famous and it is so bad. And then I...

...went and I was so glad to talk to the tea before the game because and then I went up to the you know, I will fathers are so grateful to be out to the rose. Well, we said we're so grateful to be out here where it's warm. We made as so much. The sambur people are like already left. So I went up the stairs and sat next to Dave Clemmett and then we had a lot of exile of players there and Gable and we stayed, we say, till the ED and be odd and the you know, the sun was setting out there the Pasadida rose. Well, we just love every moment of it. We have so much fun and the other side of the steady was empty, but we just it's just so much. But we got crushed. Were they get running right by me? WHO's the kid that I would forget it? They be so good. I think he's with a panther's all he's so they just literally rick by me the least. Yeah, Oh, I'm sorry, I go, but it was ridiculous. It wasn't like it was one thing. Could just wait a moment. It's like they kept scoring and I was everybody is aware. I was standing down there and it was so but I mean it is us, it's I if you're from I was, stuff like that happens and you pretty good knowledge of Bible Hawkeye Football, do you? Well? Yeah, yeah, I was going to ask Tom was here. Hayden, fry fail, I loved hated FRY. Hated FRY. You know what people say, sports are not imported sports. I could, I could pay for my experience affect your quality of life now. Hated FRY. I you know my first that you know. You see, there's football back there. That is the only football is side by Nile kidding and the nine thirty nine. I wahawkaysol kiddings are early heisman trophy winner and a side by the whole team and I got it and a Finago people from his family and and he's our he died trading for World War Two. He's are staves aid after him. But his speech at the Heisman, if you get a chance to hear that, I mean it dead gave better that. It's you know, it was in that kid's in that case and it was supposed to touch air and then one day has back here. I was like the case was empty. I liked, Hey, they may see that did and my son had kicked it over the wall there into the neighbor's pool like three days before, which it tells you. You know, when you have a said year old son who is just a giant, you can't. But what's support to have this stuff except for your son, to your kids to route it, you know? So I said. But right, that is for at all. This memorabily the I've been saved me. And then I finally, Fifty Four, had a child of that another one. That's the point of everything. WHO WOULD I be saved it for? For Real, to take it with me in the afterlife? No, I'm saving it for my kids to ruin it. So hated R I don't time. I was this for by N J sixty four, I was going to football gates. I would need something like GRANDPA. Everybody of my grandpa was a famous referee. UMPIRED and my GRANDPA was like and I was terrible. We big great with a Guy Day for Sevshefsky, but he was law God. And what's what we see? You know, you know Woody Hayes or both chef beckler or USC we come to Tawnter, we we see these other great, you know, football teams and are occasionally beat one. But I always was not a good team. But we still people still supported him and I love being with my GRANDPA. And you know, my grandpa has got a guy that he maybe he bit the meat packing planned for fifty years, you know. You know when you got in the meat packing plant, was your Granddad? Well, it was the best job of town. I had to do something to say buddy for college. And you know we're Jewish, but there's a poor process. He plaid at we that's what's what you did. I work on the kill floor for three years and that's a that's a job. You got to really want to go to college that. That's a that's job. But he so we we love the hot you know, you get a love for the team, but most field don't go to college. That there Hawkeye fans haven't got to college, or farmer's or factory workers. Their workers had. But everybody supports him and other way back we'd always stopped at this place called Dicky's prairie home all you can eat buffet. Just do that by grand off and I remember I was about seven years old, like my giant side here, and the wagers came up and took our ticket and scratched out child and wrote an adult about me, because I need so much. But and then all sudden I was working at Hormel. You know, I'll the kill floor, and that's a you know, you...

...make, you make your own fun, you know, whatever you do in life, whatever job. You know, the old guys, the old timers, would set set me up with another young guy to they say something. He said something about me and we fight at the UNHAWKERS. We're like their monkeys, you know. They what did he say about me? Well, and you know, we're and we do all kinds of silly stuff with meat I don't want to mention, but you make your old fun. He's a but the hated FRY, we're all huge, you know. We talked sports all the time. I remember would bucky dead hit that whole broad for the eggs with sports moments? You know, you remember where you were it. We talked a lot of sports and then hated fry came to Iwa and remember US talking about it there and but boy, he was so different that I you know, he was from Texas and he talked this this game and what he's going to bring Die Wan. There's something about him. We're talking to in the lot, true, and it breaks or like, you know, we'd be fat and halves and talk that we have our night. We what do you think about this guy? And for some hum reason, were like we were buying it, like he was going to chase the we had so much bs and we just felt, I felt that we all felt something was going to be different and something was different and you just felt things lift up, like like things were better. We were happier in this I mean slaughtering six thousand hogs a day. It is not that like a necessarily had something to look out. You're happy. We were hopeful. We were like there was a little you know, we were we were like it just felt better. I'll tell you. We were excited at our quality of life. And the Hawk Guy said it thinks, man, we're freaking. You know, you just felt it everywhere, like what hated fry brought to the beat paggy plant and then other people, and then we go to the bar and even after our fight, because even after you got a fight with somebody that the whole deal was you did to fight and then you and then the old tired naked shake ads and then you go to the bar and everything. That's why shot. For every buddy it's they know you were in the about occupied. Did you work there in high school? I worked it right out of high school for three years. Yeah, I worked out and then you way to fording. Hell, yeah, say buddy. I went to community college. That the way to but hated FRY. I just couldn't wait to get tiled. But I went to the Games and it's the whole state. Change the whole and dad, he and he have. You bought into it and then I got to know it as a person. Is You know. I got so a little bit college, but did to go back as a famous person and do his charity something. Got To know intimately and then we start doing stuff together. I knew him all those ways. And when I was at college it was catalot tie because I had lute Olsen. That did dad gable and hated fry like football. These elite coaches and elite teams like that doesn't like. I was so lucky to be at the University of Iowa during these ties for the final four gable, probably the greatest coach of Eddie sport ever and hated fry at Gord the Rose Bowl. And what a great tie to be in college, you know, and I also been. I was going to ask you about Lud Olsen. Funny you mentioned that. They I went to university Arizona and so when I spoke with my aunts and uncle's in Iowa when Luke left, Iwa to go to you. Of a they were in mourning. It took about a year or two to get over that and I know my aunts cried there. You know he was. He was so handsome and charismatic and everything, and I know the ladies of Iowa about his age were devastated, but we took him in a heartbeat. He came over to a four and twenty four hours on the team from my recent final four team in Iowa. But that probably wasn't one of your favorite moments. Oh that was sad. My roommate so well, it's a dodge created a place called mootel hell and so we called where it be by six or bates and I'm ember all later I was like, Oh my God, pube, this happened. The whole campus was its shocked and very, very sad. And you know, and then we're like, well, they gave him Arizona game, Alibazi, should give it up, alibazy. But you know, we my bottom did have those in one John Downer. But you know, it's it was. As you know, I'm not a person. It's like he owes. So he got you, indeed did. He gave us. We got a lot. And and you know again, I spent time with Lutleson after we go to Mauie and bring his kids. We hang out and you know, but you know, and then use root for Ludelson because you're like whatever he does in Arizona, whatever you like. Yeah, he's an iow guy.

That's how I was. But it was hard. It's hard for George Radley coming in there after loud. I can imagine Dr Tom Davis. Everybody's really hard for guys nowt but Ludhol said, man, it was so freaking cool to but it makes sense. He go to Arizona and but they wed the the libazy part. Like Dude, there's Trybas all about the buddy. And then we would they gave a libsy because us that back. Who knows em TV. It just started we just started getting it io. We had to get it on a bhs tape from one of the were ways right back for Chicago, Ludoles, and now as a lizzy does so here. Tom So you go to University of Iowa. I know you get the Minnesota somehow. So tell us that story about how you got the Minnesota to where you started really doing some stand up. Well, at the student you'd wheel room, as our student you did. They had a stage, which I do about as one of another reason I want to go to Iowa and you could get up on stage and play a song or read a pope or do stand up comedy. That said of comedy dice and I wanted to be a stand up coming. The reason I want to be a Stamba said of coming was because my dad, I was raised by a single father. When he was twenty two. I was for by sister or three. My brother is one, and that a single father. You know, you appreciate that, but we were kids. Are Like Dad, you're boring your work. He worked a factory and they gave all day. You want to play with us, man, what is your deal? He's tried, but you're boring dad. But now you I really appreciate him. He was a great guy. And so but by we'd be upstairs II'd here. The only time I heard it really really laughed was there's a guy named Bob Hope. I'm sure you know he was, but he had these big specials back in the S and s S. I always had him. But my dad we downstairs just defilly laughing so hard. And so I said to my brother and sister, whatever that Bob hope does, that's how I'm going to do. And so he was the standup comic. And so, you know, that's why I wanted to do. I wanted to go to Hollywood, however that happens, and be a standup comic like Bob Hope was. So I thought if I could get out of my town and be on TV once, then people invite own a tumble I would like me. We starts out not to be true, but you know, that's what was my goal. Godwa so, anyway, stage at the University Biowa, my first night all my buddies came. We dragged ever clear punch, which is powdered gatorade, and ever clear great alcohol. Don't do that. But and then by foot they laugh ere we laughed. It funny because they're drunk. And then the real comics had three real comics from Minneapolis from a club I'd open to them and and then the real comics came and all my friends left before the real comics because we went to another bar. So the club owner said, hey, to be a favor, if you can get your friends to stay next month for for the real comics, then I'll offer you a job in Minneapolis at our club. And I was like, Oh, hell, I'll do yeah, well done. And so I did that and then I said, guys, I got a job in Bideapolis in a real club by so I packed myself in a trash bag at a hundred bucks, got on a bus. I didn't have a car. I've been is a lot of trouble and it got the bus. That got off the bus at this club, the comedy capare in Bideapolis, and said that. I went to the club guy and said I said, Hey, I've only got a hundred bucks, I got a little close to here and I don't have a car and I'm here for my job. And he's like did you leave? I Wa go. Yeah, I did. He Goes Odo. I met a job like one weekend for seventy your you moved here and I go, Oh, yeah, youase. Oh, I go, I better that, I better get another job. So I went to there's a bar about two blocks away called waves pub, big bar complex that had a hundred twelve beers around the world or whatever. I went there and the first waitress I met said they're looking for a bar back, her bowser or something, and and I need a roommate with USAID. I moved in with her that I worked there and sold sandwiches. I did, but they had five comedy clubs. I did the open bike nights and then I worked at first avenue. I met rose and the first year that was there she was a comic from deadver. That happened to me. She wasn't famous yet, and then we performed together and I started writing jokes for her that she would on Johnny Carson and she that would killed and then Johnny Carson had her...

...sit down. Back in the day, if Johnny Carson said after you, after you before, come over instead of the couch. Should do more. You had as a career. And then I became a writer and eventually she got a TV shows. So my fiance for Middeapolis and I moved out to write her TV show and then course I didn't work out. And then in Idd eight I was as like hey, nobody likes either one of this. Let's get buried. And so that said, that's how that happened. But Bob Hope, I have to tell you the one of the first jobs I did in Los Angeles I moved here in one thousand nine hundred and eighty eight, was a bob hope special and I have the picture of the wall and Bob Hope. Called my dad and said of all the stuff and I realized I've done a both of special first of all, my dad watched this special with me, a Bob Hope together on the TV that he used to watch Bob Hope by himself. So in at while. So that's like magic. If you could. Let's fool through the do it. You can make that so. But also realize, okay, I've done everything. I no more goals because I I diddy. My Dad Laugh would bubble, but you know, that's and then, yeah, you know, I wrote the Rose Atche producer that they had the the said hey, why don't you act on the show to go okay, and then I thought well, that but actor, and then one thing to another and then I was on that. I did that show for six years. We got divorced. Then I did true lies, they did a bunch of movie stuff and then I did sports show, which I love, and then, you know, didn't whatever. Whatever I could do. I like it. Oh Yeah, you're lucky. You've done a hey, Dave, wait, let me take a quick break. We will be right back with Tom Arnold.

We're back with Tom Arnold on huddle up with gus and we were just talking to Tom about some of his early show Biz events that he did and one of those was a sports show he did with a very good friend of mine. We mentioned you of a earlier and one of my roommates at you of a Tom was John Ends. I don't know if you remember John Ms. I do. I just saw it. We had a reunion for the best sports show period at John Ants. Was a part of that. Reason. We had like a hundred people and including Michael Ear that I love, is stray handed, and Chris Rose, who's wonderful and a jodge sally slaves of John's. You know, if you talk to John as lately. Yeah, I talked to him actually this morning and he had two two scenarios that he wanted me to ask you about. So I don't know if we have time or not, but I'll give you this hues. You pick which one you want to go with. The one was the April fool's joke. You guys played on strayhand. That's one, and then the other is he said asked Tom about playing when Michael Irvan played basketball against the midgets. Okay, I do this day. First and they say something bout John has his wife's for Bitizoda right, his wife. He's very nice. His wife is the nicest person that John hads. He I heard about the zoom and he's sounded different, he'sad, like people were its. He yet had a bunch of success. That's a joke, because he was like his voice evens had a different. I'd like I got to put him in a freaking headlock, but he has. John is retired now. He's retired in Phoenix. Yeah, he did pretty well. Yeah, he's like I have I gotta give I gotta vest up his hair something. Very Nice Guy, John As. But I mean, here's so many people that show. We had an amaze. We had a maytime because we really weren't supervised, because we really weren't on a network. We are on nineteen regional networks, and so we kind of got to do you know, we did the show by started eight hundred and twelve in its clubs after the hockey game of it forty two and New York. We could say, Hey, watch a show tonight and whatever time it starts, wherever you are. But we had so much funded. Okay, so I was on this show from two thousand and one to two thousand and five and and...

...and you know, it was such a great thing and, if you know, I got paid old so much money and I love work with everybody such a great opportunity and I'm still friends that everybody. And and so they they had two thousand and six. I still go back to show do stuff and straight ahead, I love you know, I'm a giants fan. I've no street New York giants. Said I love the New York giants. But the old Guy Diowa, that was. This is because I wear a size eight football helmet, not a one size fits all, a fitted eight and my our tea pillars are red white. If I coach could only get a blue helmet. And when your quarterback this is you're right. They get that you got a blue helmet, they're going to find you. And so I put it ED, why on the side with electoral tape and I said I'm going to be a New York giant fan. I'm going to make something of this. And you know, I started. He gave everything about New York giants now and later life. The Guy just called me yesterday, Steve Tish, I mean friends with Bob Tish. Steve Teaches my best man at my wedding. They owed the failed the giants the exact tissues. God father. That's but I used to go to football games with the super bowls with Bob dish, is all bad who loved football and his his story in life. Assist. He had his brother Larry, made billions of dollars. They started from nothing. His dream was to own the New York giants. He made so much money. The bear of family, the Wellington Beara there there's old sources of income. Was a New York giants. He said I want to buy half, I'll give you fifty billion dollars. They needed buddy, he said. I says, I won't get involved with the team. You could do everything. I just want to shake the players heads at the end of the game. That's who Bob Tish was. that he met it and he said this is a you. There you go. And so I got to go to super bowls with Bob Tissue. Course that fifty million dollar investment unit need united is worth a trillion dollars because that they the dish family, cat help but make money. But he genuinely loved magic. Growing up with nothing going man, if I could know the New York giants and do it anyway, Steve's a side great man. So so that so the that so my Michael Stray had for the time. He's a rookie, loved him, hanging out with him, know him. You just knew Michael. Michael Trans going to have a career afterwards. You can tell people that are excellent communicators, hard workers, and so they're like, listen, I get a call from and said those guys, I can we had great idea for a April fools joke. I go yeah, I'm sure it's a terrible idea. Did you guys have the terrible ideas thoughts April fools I go back there. Everybody knows this April Fools Day. So soon we start this stupid joke, they'll liedge. Just here it out. We're going to pretend we've bocked up a book, like you've written a new book and you're just going to go and we're you going to start talking about this in the book and you've trashed everyone and then you're going to make it up. Rodney Pete was on there and Rob Dibbel at the time, and and and stay ahead, and we're going to make and the Chris rose is a host. Now Chris is in on it. They tell me Chris Ro's host. And what you do is make straight hand really bad, and then Rob Dibbel who is about three hundred pounds headed. So was, so is Roddy Pete. I love, or Roddy Peter, I love. He's very trimmed out. He was on the top, and Rob Dibbel, who came out after me. And you're good. So say all this nasty stuff that's in the book about Michael Ervid and all these different people that were on the show and friends is sports locker room stuff that you put in your book that nobody would ever do because it's so personal. And you're going to make these guys bad. And then you're and then you're Chris gonna go, okay, it's a joke, and I go, it'll be stupid. They'll know it's a joke. Is Able full stake heels. Will you please do it? I go okay, so Chris rose is supposed to know, and then he's going to cut it off. So I could. So I do is. I called straight ahead to go listen to me, mad this. See, here's what we're going to do, because they they don't they say. So I tell straight the whole thing. are going to listen. You just keep listing. And then it was some point you get pissed and then when and before don't let rose cut us off and then you going to Jabby and then we're going to be the fist fight, like for real, like throw me down over top of chair, like you get bad. I'm going to just say some personal stuff that's about you and I'm going to go really deep. And what ended up happening is I started and Rob Dibbil and Roddy Peter like what this is, this is a right. First are like, what is happening to and then I talked about that's actually they'll I can add them and by actually say personal's up about John Sally and something I know, but Michael Lerman, because they haven't really thought it through. And then I turned to to Michael Straya and I say the stuff I know...

...about tiggy barber. That's true for the Lunger, and then I got he kind of and then finally he by and Michael Stray at. It's a great they play it every every April full state because it's such a good prank. And at one point he goes he's acting so much. I look Chris rose. He started padding. He looks at camera. I know he's going to cut US offtly. That go jam by figure in. Michael Arvit his chest and to trigger his face and then he cut whips around on top of me and then I get him on the ground somehow and then Rob Dimmel, three hundred pound with Ruddy Pete, come down top. They crack one of my crits and have bod but then Michael Rvit. It's a fright night. I mean Michael Stray had. He just had peck surgery. That's why he's with us. He tore his pack and he goes, Oh, I tore eddy. The directors like that's it. Go to black top. Finally thought he finally wrote the show. That's happens. To the booth to show us some black and they think. People in New York Think, Oh my God, he has straight had his reajured because he's on the ground going over. And then they go to black, and then and then, but Michael say, I get something goes April Fools motherfucking and they got here up and then but it's later got a black. So they panicked there they have to do a press thing after and then I came back, but bile stray I was such a good actor and but then I also cut bloody because those ice actually jumped on me. I did have a crack Drib but then my head to come back bloody and but it went on. I'll la Michael Stray had hit me one time. I pissed blood for three days. So I'm in there death. He seems like a Nice Guy, but he's that. He was great. He was a great player and and you know, he stayed around for that that Super Bowl. Bad Tigi. That's you know, Tegi was. It's you know, you can't be like that. You got to be and I'm so have about joze. Okay, so let's say about his sports man. When we went, I would bob taste outs at Tampa twice, the giants. Tread dilfer was their quarterback. Let me tell you something. We were going to crush them. I wrote on the team bus to that Super Bowl. We were going to crush them. The giants had that one in the bag and and bad. We got beat, so bad humiliated that we went to to get they said you want to ride in the team back to visit Tihot own, a hotel and or that? I was like no, Ho'w man to Hitchhike, because people are so sad and devastated. I don't want to be around them. So in two thousand and eight when the we're played top bre he's undefeated New England patriots. Now I had a hint that we might be able to beat them because we come close last year the regular season. But there's no way. There's no way we were going to beat them. So I we all had so much fun. Doubt it. Doubt it. Scottsdale we had so much fun. But like there's no pressure at that game. It was the most fun game ever and I think I was in the so about a minute a half left. You know what happened. Like Eli, who is my quarterback for life, gets out of it's impossible that he gets away for that guy. The guys is Jersey and I'm watching that. I'm you know, it's bear Blue Berg. I'm were repetitions box and you know, like how does he get away like that? He doesn't get away for people like God's the Head of God is right there. He gets away and like we're watching that, like what what's happening? And then, you know, he gets away, he gets the ball and tyree and then planks fills scored. I what it. I take that. There is about this big games. A Mayor Bluebird. Throw him up. He says, his head, we've headed right down the field. I had he bother to get field passes. The bear kids, you know they're they're famous actress is. Now they did. Hey, buddy, I got them all all that. We just bust about. You out security as a super bowl, like tight, it's through it all. Yeah, they're got everybody through and and it was crazy, crazy, crazy. That like it just tells you. I told my Sol type. You don't give up. You fight till they had met, because you know, sports are better than life. You just never know what should happen. You know it is. It was the craziest thing. It was impossible and it happened, and bad at you talk about great bevery. What do you build their side? We got a talk you. How do you think sports? How do you think sports helped you with your acting, in your you're you know you're doing so much, all of your comedy. How do you think sports really helped you with all that? And it's say it's relax. It's like I just enjoy it. There is iouself. He was my drunken choice. Man, I just gets me...
