How do you keep your family healthythis season when it feels like everyone around? You is getting sick. I useSamba Calle it's drug, free and scientifically tested to help supportyour immunity. SAN BACAL has the power of black elderberry in every purplebottle. It comes in tablet, Syrup Chobles or my kid's favorite, the greattasting gummies. So this cold in Flu Season Support Your family's immunitywith Sanba call black elderberry, it's the only one. I Trust for my family andbest of all my kids love it too so day. What do you think about the podcast sofar and the people now you'r? You know yourtrue feelings about it and how you feel, like the guests, we've gotten thestories we've heard, you know how did any of those resonatewith you or well. I think the common anominator with allthese people, everyone we've had on, has been very successful in differentways and they've overcome anversity indifferent ways, whether it being fired, whether it's you know you losing theirjob, getting fired, getting cut. However, it is but they've all bouncedback also and sports at an early age has been the the theme throughout andplaying in the neighborhood, with the kids and learning how to selfgovernlearning how to pick yourself up when HEU gets knockeddown and without the guidance of coaches and parents, and everything on your backand just figuring out yourself has been a theme throughout their life and it'smade them successful for other life yeah. So you know I I think about whatit is today, where we don't see kids play out in the backyard. We don't see,kids, picking up games and playing in the local parks and all that as noteven close to what we did when we were kids. So how can I was just drivingdown here? Thinking about that today, it's like how can kids, by socializingby being on a computer being on their...

...phones playing against their friendsbut not being with them. I'm just wondering how what lessons, whatdifferent lessons are learning compared to what we learned well, they're,missing out and so much especially tha you just just socialization in general, with thephones and everything else, not to sound like a Crotche, ty old man, butthe yeah I mean my the kids in my daughters,high school. They asked people to go to the dances through texting or whateverthey don't. Even look him in the eye and asking you know it's just again. Itsounds like an old man, but that's such an important part of lifedeal to lookat someone and talk to them versus then be being it a at home on a computer.And you don't learn you. You can't reallylearn how to deal with rejection if you're you just scold hem the nexttame in your phone and ask them to the dance. Well even Vince talked aboutlike you know he wasn't the best tennis player W and he came from Brooklyn andhe's going to play at these clubs and they're laughing at them. You know right and they're, beatingthem and they're, saying yeah you're going to be a tennis pro yeah right,but that drove him to push himself to be better. You know and fight throughall that adversity and I think, even if it's wiffaball right, if you're,the youngest kid, the smallest kid you're playing wilf a ball and you onlyget the bat so often, but you know you go up and you do something: Fun N andyou're kind of equal with everybody and then right also, you ha got to learnhow to deal with. If I do strike out, you know what I mean and it was well,it's a third out a good wifflball players welcome in any social circle. Ithink I think so too. I think so too so we're here at the studio today Davewe drove you know, camps here, and I wanted to talk a little bit about our favorite snack we like to have whenwe are here in the studio. Dukes smoke, shorty sausages. I love that hehas to say theyr shorty sausages. They...

...are short, shorty, sausages, yeah, but I do like those, but you only can haveabout ten before you get your full sodium intake yeah and before you haveto bring in a fan into the studio right start getting the teat, sweat, they'retalking about yeah, the combination of the shorty sausage smell and then justthe heat of the studio Lihe. Let me ask you: Do you think Tom Brady he sees ona Saturday night? I don't think he does that unless he brings them in hisoxygen chamber with him. That's the only way he would pake. I can you don'tthink he mixes one up in is smoothe. I don't think his his team of chefs,that's not on the menu io dukes is not coming out, but they're, not in his car,so he snacking on thim on well. He may be married to the world's mostbeautiful woman, but he's actually missing out. He is so. If we go to the NFL this week Dave.You know we already interviewed David Baker from the pro footballhall of fame.There's a lot of no great former players up for nomination to be thenext Great Hall of Famers, but I think we're gonna watch a game thisupcoming weekend, which I'm really excited to watch between the Ravens andthe chiefs, big game you're. Seeing two of now emerging the you probably didn't say this before theseason, but to the top quarterbacks in e NFL. Suddenly you that's wher youhaveplan right. He you knew mahomes but Jackson. I think people had high hopes,but right I didn't know WHA's going to turn out like this. No, they had noidea, I'm excited to watch it, and then we also had some big losses. As far asquarterbeck goes this week, there's about six or seven householdnames that are out for a long amount of time or the year I mean Big Ben drewbreeze. I mean you name it that I mean we've Lost Nick pholesis. So to avariety of things to you. Look at Mono, you look at torn Fubmen legaments. Youhave mysterious elbow injuries, there's...

...all kinds of stuff all kinds of stuff,but that's what makes the backupquarterback so valuable. As they always say, the most popularguy in town is the backup quarterback right, Doingas, we're hearing it here.Mason rudoph right now sounds like Joe Montana, I'm as a steeler fan, I'moptimistic, but he's played a half so far at football N. I think that he isgoing to be okay. What he did when you and camer talking the other day aboutyou know, there's always been a certain type of transition and there's been anopportunity for people. I think that I think he's going to riseto the occasion. That's my gutfeeling! Well, you know in a super small samplethat we've got to see, he did shit some things that were very encouraging andthe the similarities between his emergenc into the lineup and Big Benafter madixs got hert. Really it's amazing. If you look at the numbers er,it's like the number of games in the season, what what they are in theircareer Tom went. It was cowars. Thirteenth Year was tol on TSthirteenth. Her a lot of similarities so right I'm excited about it s, it'sto shame bends down, but I'm happy to have mason as a as analternative, and he should get the ball a little more because they got mincoFitz, Patrick from the dolphins and- and you know I think, that'll help them.I mean any time your offense can have more touches, you're going to scoremore points, whe. I think it shows confidence the steelers having him toothey make now granted. They did lose their Sean Davis, their safety, Fort N. that's big reason: they got itsPatrick, but if they thought the season was lost with bendown, I don't know ifthey make that move, I mean they gave up a lot to give up a number one andsome other picks to get Fitz Batrick, that's showing Rudolfh, hey. We haveconfidence a year going to be okay here and th t we don't want to just throw. IO Talphin sees, but you know the other thing I think about when you look at hewhat they gave up and then you go back...

...to Antonio Brown and what they got.They knew that there was trouble there. You know t I mean if you think aboutwhat they gave for Fitz, Patrick and they solved like his pedigree. Theyknow what Aan Antonio Broncodo, but they also knew the baggage came withthem, and they understood that. Hey Good luck, raiders will take whateveryou give us yeah. No, I know I think a lot ofpeople initially couldn't believe that that's all they got in return, but howlong was Ye with the raiders about a month right before I threaten thegeneral manager to physical confrontation when call him racial Sler.Besides that it was a nice Foro, te well face or or firting in the doctor'sface or refusing to go on the field, because the helmet that you are in love with was no longeravailable El, the only player in the NFL complaining about it. You know whatthe other thing is, I think of too with all the stuff that's going on with ABboy. I bet the pirates wish they would have done the same thing with certainplayers. Yes, and that's that's certainly a more serious notewhen you look at the charges, but that is, if you just look from a baseballstandpoint, it's classic pirates. They had their one biggest pargaining shipthat they had for a long time that they held on to ends up being acomehe's going to be probably in prison. Now for ten months of life, whateverthe whatever ever a GNTO be yeah. So they get nothing in return at all ontheir best player possible that they'v. You know that they had to deal yea yeah,which is insane and that's typical pirates for you classic, but well they'll get someone off the scrape and think that Syriage will be able to rebuild them into a winner, or sothat happens like one out of yeah. Hey in congratulations to your wife, gotnew job right and I've seen her all over facebook. She yeah she's at shehad a great career at Howard Hannah and she made the move over to southaby'sand she's very excited Bo, getting...

Ifit's more than two hours when I thought she was going to be a little moreexcited than that just, but that was the first thing out of her mouth wascancel it if it's over two hours. So I looked on. Thethe dig Goe Mat at the Google APPsand it was two ho four. So I told her towl depends on the starting pointexactly well.

Maybe while you drink a white claw, always while you'redrinking a white cloth e, not twistid, if you had a twist a t with that, thetjust be over overdoing it. No no twis ed T, since we found out what the realcalory account n yeah. Seventy five husand calories in three months for you.Yes, it's still showing, and that was a bad period of my life. Where I refusedto look at, I had lots and lots of twitites but refused to look at thecaloriy count, because I knew it was not good and then finally, he to Le looked it up and it changed mylife because I stopped drinking hem right right, yeah, but they're so good.They are and that's a secret.
