It's the only one I trust for my family and, bestof all, my kids love it too. So Day, what do you thinkabout the podcast so far and the people know you're you know your truefeelings about it and how you feel like the guess we've gotten the stories we'veheard. You know. How did any of those resonate with you or well, I think the common denominator with all these people, everyone we've had onhas been very successful in different ways and they've overcome adversity in different ways,whether it's being fired, whether it's, you know you losing their job,getting fired, getting cut, however it is. But they've all bounced back. Also, and sports at an early age has been the theme throughout,and playing in the neighborhood with the kids and learning how to selfgovern, learninghow to pick yourself off up when you get knocked down and without the guidanceof coaches and parents and everything, on your back and just figuring out yourselfhas been a theme throughout their life and it's made them successful throughout their life. Yeah, so, you know, I think about what it is today, where we don't see kids playing out in the backyard, we don't seekids 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 driving down here thinking about that. Today is like how cankids by socializing, by being on a...

...computer, being on their phones,playing against their friends and but not being with them? I'm just wondering howwhat lessons, but different lessons, they're learning compared to what we learned.Well, they're missing out on so much, especially you just just socialization in generalwith the phones and everything else. not to sound like a crotchety oldman, but the yeah, I mean my kids are in my daughter's highschool. They ask people to go to the dances through texting or whatever.They don't even look him in the eye and ask. You know, it'sjust again, it sounds like an old man, but it that's such animportant part of life to be able to look at someone and talk to him, versus then be being a a at home on a computer and you don'tlearn, you don't you can't really learn how to deal with rejection if you'reyou just scrolled up the next game in your phone and ask them to thedance. Well, you convince talked about like, you know, he wasn'tthe best tennis player and he came from Brooklyn and he's going to play atthese clubs and they're laughing at them, you know, right, and they'rebeating them and they're saying, yeah, you're going to be a tennis proyet. Right, but that drove him to push himself to be better,you know, and fight through all that adversity. And I think even ifit's whiffleball, right, if you're the youngest kid, the smallest kid,and you're playing whoff the ball and you only get the bat so often,but you know, you go up and you do something fun and and you'rekind of equal with everybody and then, but also you got to learn howto deal with if I do strike out, you know what I mean. Andit was well, that's a third out. A good will. Footballplayers welcome in any social circle. I think. I think so too.I think so too. So we're here at the studio today, Dave,we drow you know, Cams here and I wanted to talk a little bitabout our favorite snack we like to have when we're here in the studio.Dukes smoked shorty sausages. I love that he has to say they're shorty sausages. They are short shorty sausages. Yeah,...

...but I do like those, butyou only can have about ten before you get your full sodium intake.Yeah, and before you have to bring in a fan into the studio.Right started getting their neat sweat they're talking about, yeah, the combination ofthe shorty sausage smell and then just the heat of the studio lights. Letme ask, do you think Tom Brady eat season a Saturday night? Idon't think he does that, unless he brings them in his oxygen chamber withthem. That's the only way he would play. I can you don't thinkhe's mixes one up in his smoothie? I don't think is. His teamof chefs. That's not on the menu. I don't Dukes is not coming out, but they're not in his car. So he's snacking on him on awell, he may be married to the world's most beautiful woman, buthe's actually missing out. He is. So if we go to the NFLthis week, Dave, you know we already interviewed David Baker from the profootball hall of fame. There's a lot of not great former players up fornomination to be the next Great Hall of famers. But I think we're goingto watch a game this upcoming weekend which I'm really excited to watch, betweenthe Ravens and the chiefs. Big Game. You're seeing two of now emerging theyou probably didn't say this before the season, but to the top quarterbacksin the NFL, suddenly you that's what you have playing. Right. Youknew Mahomes, but Jackson. I think people had high hopes, but right, and I was going to turn like this. No, they had noidea. I'm excited to watch it. And then we also had some biglosses as far as quarterback goes. This week there's about six or seven householdnames that are out for a long amount of time or the year. Imean big and drew brees, I mean, you name it that. I meanwe've Lost Nick Foles, so so to a variety of things. Doyou look at Mono? You look at torn thudd ligaments, you have mysteriouselbow injuries. There's all kinds of stuff,...

...oh, kinds of stuff, butthat's what makes the backup quarterback so valuable. As they always say,the most popular guy in town is the backup quarterback. Right as as we'rehearing it here, Mason Rudolph right now sounds like Joe Montana. I'm asa steeler fan, I'm optimistic, but he's played a half so far.FOOTBALLFL I think that he is going to be okay. What he did whenyou and Cam we're talking the other day about you know, there's always beena certain type of transition and there's been an opportunity for people. I thinkthat I think he's going to rise to the occasion. That's my gut feeling. Well, you know, in a super small sample that we've got tosee, he did show some things that we're very encouraging and the the similaritiesbetween his emergence into the lineup and Big Ben after maddox got her. Reallyit's amazing. If you look at the numbers there. It's the the numberof games into the season. What what they are in their career. Tomwent that it was cowards thirteen year was Tom's thirteen. Here. A lotof similarities. So right and I'm excited about it. It's a shame bendsdown, but I'm happy to have mason as a as an alternative, andhe should get the ballottle more because they got mink of Fitzpatrick from the dolphinsand and you know, I think that'll help them. I mean, anytimeyour offense can have more touches, your guys score more points. Why?I think it shows confidence the steelers have in him too. They make now. Granted, they did lose their Sean Davis, their safety for that's abig reason they got fitzpatrick. But if they thought the season was lost withBen Down, I don't know if they make that move. I mean theygave up a lot to give up a number one and some other picks toget fitzpatrick. That's showing, Rudolph Hey, we have confidence a year going tobe okay here and that we we don't want to throw a Telphan Se's. But you know, the other thing I think about when you look atwhat they gave up and then you go...

...back to Antonio Brown and what theygot, they knew that there was trouble there. You know what I mean? If you think about what they gave for Fitzpatrick and they saw the kisspedigree, they know what an Antonio Brown could do, but they also knewthe baggage came with them and they understood that hey could luck. Raiders willtake whatever you give us. Yeah, no, I know. I thinka lot of people initially couldn't believe that that's all they got in return.But how long is he with the raiders? About a month, right before Ithreatened general manager to physical confrontation when call him racial slur. Besides that, it was a nice first. Well, it's or or fighting in the doctor'sface or refusing to go on the field because the helmet that you arein love with was no longer available. Well, the only player in theNFL complaining about it. You know what the other thing is? I thinkof to with all the stuff is going on Ab boy, bet the pirateswish they would have done the same thing with certain players. Yes, andthat's that's certainly a more serious note when you look at the charges, butthat is if you just look from a baseball standpoint, it's classic pirates.They had their one biggest bargaining chip that they had for a long time thatthey held on to. Ends up being at come. He's going to beprobably in prison now for ten to life, whatever that whatever ever's going to be. Yeah, so they get nothing in return at all on their bestplayer possible that they've you know, that they had to deal and, yeah, which is insane and that's typical pirates for you. Classic. But well, they'll get someone off the scrap heak and think that series will be ableto rebuild them into a winner. or so that happens like one out ofyeah, Hey, in congratulations to your wife. Got A new job right, and I've seen her all over facebook. She yeah, she's a she hada great career at Howard Hannah and she made the move over to Sotheby'sand she's very excited but getting started and...

Oh, so theyes, so we're Kelly and I are taking a secret trip that she doesn'tknow where we're going. She knows we're all going on a trip. AllI've told her is it's out of state, like driving out of state or flyingdriving out of state, but that's all I'm going to say. Andshe said to cancel it if it's more than two hours. When I Ithought she was going to be a little more excited than that. Just butthat was the first thing out of her mouth, was to cancel it ifit's over two hours. So I looked on the google bath, the GoogleAPPs, and it was two hundred and four. So I told her towell, depends on the starting point exactly. Well, it's a never drive away. It'll be under two hours. Yeah, but also depends on howfast you drive and you can get me down. Will have to not stopfor as many coffees as she likes to do, but it's so good.Says it north, southeast or west. It's she also made sure it wasn'tin Ohio. So I'll say it's not in Ohio. Are So what wehave and it's not in West Virginia. Okay, that's true. Down andit's near a big pool of waters.

All say. Okay, I don'twant to say lake. Yeah, but it's is a lake. Now I'llconfess it's a lake and it's not in Ohio, Pennsylvania or West Virginia.So that's that's all.

Yes, if my name was Michael Scott, I would say that's whatshe said right. It's funny. When I look at that, it remindsme of part of a dog that so that used to pop out a lotover her house that we used to try to throw sugar on to have itretract, but nothing in I don't know where that came from. I don'tknow. I just saw the bag full of those and I thought of Winston. You have real, like you always have, a little things, likewhy you can't eat something or do something because remind you is something. Yeah, you have some like pet pet nut...

...pet peace, but I'm trying tothink of the word for it. They're really reservations about some teat. Areyou from eating certain things, like like all of us. But See,I'll say that and then in five minutes, how I eat three of these.You know. So it's like, but you're all of stories. Great, you all a story. Yeah, I can't do the olives. Iwas as as a pledge at the University Arizona. I was force fed acouple jars at one point, about three jars, and about a minute anda half after I already hate it all of so I still I think Istill taste that sometimes. Yeah, and then you found out how must doesn'thave all of in it and you were pretty excited about yeah, I wasalways afraid of AMIS and I've found out that what the actual ingredients were andthe nasty rumor of being full of all. It wasn't true. Now that's youand I went to let. Well, you and I went to Laddin's.Had a nice healthy plate full of Thomas Dipped Geez in it. Itwas alternative. Might be the last time I've eating a veggie. That wasactually it was my last time. Yeah, yeah, that, I don't know. If let us want a burger. Counsels Veggie? Yeah, catch up. Counsel's Veggie. It does. Food depends when you bring this tomatoof Veggie. Oh to me, does a fruit? Yes, technically,yeah, that is true. So it doesn't count. Relish. Relish.Yeah, you go as a veg. All right. Well, that's alittle bit about what Dave and our CAM. What do you up to? Cam'sgoing to a wedding. So it's Cam Haldiman's wedding? crashers preview?Oh yeah, yeah, it's not. It's a wedding that he has noidea whose wedding it is. He's just going. He's wearing his suit andtie and just going to some random person's wedding. Maybe it's at the samearea that I'm going on my it's by a big pool of water, hesaid. Maybe it's two hours away by a big pool water. So Cam, who you going with Solo crash for...

Cam? Did you ever see weddingcrashers? Tave, I did not as many times as a lot of people. That seems to be one of those a lot of people watch over andover. As you know, movies are my strong point, but I amlooking for to Vince's movie. Yeah, and I am too. What doesthat call? Seven days of Vegas? It's on a shirt up there.Oh, it's right, my Dave. Let's do a bat. Let's doseven days to Fox Chapel. From the e see it, there's no wayto survive. I don't think they're not walk I'm the one side it's onehundred and twenty eight, on the side it's twenty. You'll be looking likeone of those bloated deer that are always sitting there like leg broken, neckbroken like and then just, yeah, rotting and swelling with flies inside stomach. You know what? But if you have some shorty sausage inside, youmay not take as long to swell up. No, might have to make somestops along the way. Maybe nothing. It's Duke Shorty Sausages, but yeah, that would be that would be one fuel you could put in yourbody before you make that track. That's it. It's it sevens and I'mgonna try dipping Hummus. I'm the soft shorty sausages into Hummus. Yeah,maybe, while you drink a white cloth. Always while you're drinking a white cloth. Not Twisted. If you had a twist of tea, that thatjust be over over doing it. No, no twisted tea, since we foundout what the real calorie counts on it can yeah, seventy fivezero caloriesin three months for you. Yes, it's still showing. And that wasa bad period of my life where you refused to look at lots and lotsof twisted teas, but refuse to look at the cower count because I knewit was not good. And then finally you tole looked it up and itchanged my life because I stopped drinking right, right, yeah, but they're sogood. They are, and that's a secret. They don't you don'teven know. You're not just drinking just iced tea. Yeah, like thecommercial be should be, like twisted teas...

...taste so great when it's hot out, but you're also getting like four thousand times you're you have lifetime supply ofsugar. Yeah, no, you do. You, I think. I think, I think, we look at it, one can is about aweek and a half worth of sugar. Yeah, it's unbelievable, but theyare tasty. Yeah, very good, very good. To Cam when yougo to the wedding, don't have twisted teas. A void them. Andthen if you do drink white clause, just say you lost a prop betand you have to drink as many white claus as possible. Yeah, andthen you'd now you have to drink twisted or white clause, because if yourfriends catch you drinking white clause, like for Dave and I, we don'treally care if anybody makes fun of us. But for you, if you drinkwhite clause, may not be good. I got picked at profile. No, absolutely, and also the white after drinking truly he's for so longdo yeah, one of the at the time, one of the only malesthat really admitted to doing that. I think it's pretty much socially accepted now. Used to. I used to drink truly he's and everyone would get theguy, the guy that beer distributed, gave him to you in a likea paper bag. So nobody saw you carrying them out. Well, yeah, and then then the Guy Walking out said, Oh, do you getthose free with your box of Tamp on? So I knew that was facing astorm of criticism after I heard that. Yeah, I never really bothered me. And somebody said that because my wife was drinking regular beer and Iwas drinking a white claw. And you know what, one little secret towhich the same guy who sold me now he's selling in the white clause.Use The white clause a mixer with your vodka. Who? So it's notreally a mixer because it's almost the same amount of alcohol, but it addssome. So now you're going from now you're doing. It's a whole anotherlevel alcoholism. But yeah, it is. It is tasty, though, butit's still you can just say that's just it's just soda water. Youcan ease, you can say that just. Yeah, I've tried that. Idon't get away with anymore. So...
