How do you keep your family healthy this season when it feels like everyone around you is getting sick? I USE SAMBA call. It's drug free and scientifically tested to help support your immunity. SAMBA call has the power of black elderberry in every purple bottle. It comes in tablet serruptuables or, my kids favorite, the great taste, in gummies. So this cold and blue season, support your family's immunity with Samba called black elderberry. It's the only one I trust for my family and, best of all, my kids love it too. So Day, what do you think about the podcast so far and the people know you're you know your true feelings about it and how you feel like the guess we've gotten the stories we've heard. 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 on has 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, learning how to pick yourself off up when you get knocked down and without the guidance of coaches and parents and everything, on your back and just figuring out yourself has 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 see kids picking up games and playing in the local parks and all that as not even 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 can kids 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 how what 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 general with the phones and everything else. not to sound like a crotchety old man, but the yeah, I mean my kids are in my daughter's high school. 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's just again, it sounds like an old man, but it that's such an important 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't learn, you don't you can't really learn how to deal with rejection if you're you just scrolled up the next game in your phone and ask them to the dance. Well, you convince talked about like, you know, he wasn't the best tennis player and he came from Brooklyn and he's going to play at these clubs and they're laughing at them, you know, right, and they're beating them and they're saying, yeah, you're going to be a tennis pro yet. Right, but that drove him to push himself to be better, you know, and fight through all that adversity. And I think even if it'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're kind of equal with everybody and then, but also you got to learn how to deal with if I do strike out, you know what I mean. And it was well, that's a third out. A good will. Football players 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 bit about 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, but you 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 of the shorty sausage smell and then just the heat of the studio lights. Let me ask, do you think Tom Brady eat season a Saturday night? I don't think he does that, unless he brings them in his oxygen chamber with them. That's the only way he would play. I can you don't think he's mixes one up in his smoothie? I don't think is. His team of 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 a well, he may be married to the world's most beautiful 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 football hall of fame. There's a lot of not great former players up for nomination to be the next Great Hall of famers. But I think we're going to watch a game this upcoming weekend which I'm really excited to watch, between the Ravens and the chiefs. Big Game. You're seeing two of now emerging the you probably didn't say this before the season, but to the top quarterbacks in the NFL, suddenly you that's what you have playing. Right. You knew Mahomes, but Jackson. I think people had high hopes, but right, and I was going to turn like this. No, they had no idea. I'm excited to watch it. And then we also had some big losses as far as quarterback goes. This week there's about six or seven household names that are out for a long amount of time or the year. I mean big and drew brees, I mean, you name it that. I mean we've Lost Nick Foles, so so to a variety of things. Do you look at Mono? You look at torn thudd ligaments, you have mysterious elbow injuries. There's all kinds of stuff,...

...oh, kinds of stuff, but that'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're hearing it here, Mason Rudolph right now sounds like Joe Montana. I'm as a 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 when you and Cam we're talking the other day about you know, there's always been a certain type of transition and there's been an opportunity for people. I think that 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 to see, he did show some things that we're very encouraging and the the similarities between his emergence into the lineup and Big Ben after maddox got her. Really it's amazing. If you look at the numbers there. It's the the number of games into the season. What what they are in their career. Tom went that it was cowards thirteen year was Tom's thirteen. Here. A lot of similarities. So right and I'm excited about it. It's a shame bends down, but I'm happy to have mason as a as an alternative, and he should get the ballottle more because they got mink of Fitzpatrick from the dolphins and and you know, I think that'll help them. I mean, anytime your 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 a big reason they got fitzpatrick. But if they thought the season was lost with Ben Down, I don't know if they make that move. I mean they gave up a lot to give up a number one and some other picks to get fitzpatrick. That's showing, Rudolph Hey, we have confidence a year going to be 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 at what they gave up and then you go...

...back to Antonio Brown and what they got, 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 kiss pedigree, they know what an Antonio Brown could do, but they also knew the baggage came with them and they understood that hey could luck. Raiders will take whatever you give us. Yeah, no, I know. I think a 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 I threatened 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's face or refusing to go on the field because the helmet that you are in love with was no longer available. Well, the only player in the NFL complaining about it. You know what the other thing is? I think of to with all the stuff is going on Ab boy, bet the pirates wish they would have done the same thing with certain players. Yes, and that's that's certainly a more serious note when you look at the charges, but that 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 that they held on to. Ends up being at come. He's going to be probably 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 best player 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 able to rebuild them into a winner. or so that happens like one out of yeah, 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 had a great career at Howard Hannah and she made the move over to Sotheby's and she's very excited but getting started and...

...she's if anyone needs to list our house right now she's at her slates at zero. So she's plenty, plenty of time on her hands to be fully committed to your listing. My favorite is when her mom, polly, will read, tweet or retweet or put back out on facebook and need to see. Thanks mom. Yeah, Kelly, she's she's a very she's a sweet girl but in a but also a very heavy businesswoman. So she does. Yeah, so if you're in looking for a home or want to sell your home, definitely go see Kelly. It's south bees, Kelly Hagar, south bees. Yes, she's. She's again looking forward to the start and we're excited about the move. All Right, day. So what are you looking forward to this weekend? Well, let's see, we have this weekend is my anniversary. Oh, so the yes, so we're Kelly and I are taking a secret trip that she doesn't know where we're going. She knows we're all going on a trip. All I've told her is it's out of state, like driving out of state or flying driving out of state, but that's all I'm going to say. And she said to cancel it if it's more than two hours. When I I thought she was going to be a little more excited than that. Just but that was the first thing out of her mouth, was to cancel it if it's over two hours. So I looked on the google bath, the Google APPs, and it was two hundred and four. So I told her to well, depends on the starting point exactly. Well, it's a never drive away. It'll be under two hours. Yeah, but also depends on how fast you drive and you can get me down. Will have to not stop for 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't in Ohio. So I'll say it's not in Ohio. Are So what we have and it's not in West Virginia. Okay, that's true. Down and it's near a big pool of waters.

All say. Okay, I don't want to say lake. Yeah, but it's is a lake. Now I'll confess it's a lake and it's not in Ohio, Pennsylvania or West Virginia. So that's that's all. We want to keep the surprise going. New Jersey, that's impossible to get to you that quickly, I believe it. Even if you drive its ass as you do. I do get the Philly really quick, in about four hours. So what's going on with you guys this weekend? It's our weekend where we're not doing anything. You've been gone many weekends in row. Yeah, so the we went to Abbey's last weekend, so I'll Gabe and then nothing this weekend. Next weekend it's parents weekends of Delaware, so we're going to see Gabe. So and then some point we got to go down and watch gunner coach. So we just been crazy busy and it's going to be nice to be at home and continue my honey do list of taking care of the yard. Will keep the dogs out of the Kennel to write. And Rupert has kind of class now. Oh does? Yeah, he so I got to pick up medicine as to show today we should meet the incident that happened at the Kennel. Yeah, he just does not he does not do well with other dogs. As I dig into a Duke's shorty sausage. Oh Yeah, I love that. They're called shorty sausages. Yes, if my name was Michael Scott, I would say that's what she said right. It's funny. When I look at that, it reminds me of part of a dog that so that used to pop out a lot over her house that we used to try to throw sugar on to have it retract, but nothing in I don't know where that came from. I don't know. I just saw the bag full of those and I thought of Winston. You have real, like you always have, a little things, like why 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 to think of the word for it. They're really reservations about some teat. Are you 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. I was as as a pledge at the University Arizona. I was force fed a couple jars at one point, about three jars, and about a minute and a half after I already hate it all of so I still I think I still taste that sometimes. Yeah, and then you found out how must doesn't have all of in it and you were pretty excited about yeah, I was always afraid of AMIS and I've found out that what the actual ingredients were and the nasty rumor of being full of all. It wasn't true. Now that's you and I went to let. Well, you and I went to Laddin's. Had a nice healthy plate full of Thomas Dipped Geez in it. It was alternative. Might be the last time I've eating a veggie. That was actually 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 tomato of 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 a little bit about what Dave and our CAM. What do you up to? Cam's going 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 no idea whose wedding it is. He's just going. He's wearing his suit and tie and just going to some random person's wedding. Maybe it's at the same area that I'm going on my it's by a big pool of water, he said. 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 wedding crashers? 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 and over. As you know, movies are my strong point, but I am looking for to Vince's movie. Yeah, and I am too. What does that 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 do seven days to Fox Chapel. From the e see it, there's no way to survive. I don't think they're not walk I'm the one side it's one hundred and twenty eight, on the side it's twenty. You'll be looking like one of those bloated deer that are always sitting there like leg broken, neck broken like and then just, yeah, rotting and swelling with flies inside stomach. You know what? But if you have some shorty sausage inside, you may not take as long to swell up. No, might have to make some stops along the way. Maybe nothing. It's Duke Shorty Sausages, but yeah, that would be that would be one fuel you could put in your body before you make that track. That's it. It's it sevens and I'm gonna 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 that just be over over doing it. No, no twisted tea, since we found out what the real calorie counts on it can yeah, seventy fivezero calories in three months for you. Yes, it's still showing. And that was a bad period of my life where you refused to look at lots and lots of twisted teas, but refuse to look at the cower count because I knew it was not good. And then finally you tole looked it up and it changed my life because I stopped drinking right, right, yeah, but they're so good. They are, and that's a secret. They don't you don't even know. You're not just drinking just iced tea. Yeah, like the commercial 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 of sugar. Yeah, no, you do. You, I think. I think, I think, we look at it, one can is about a week and a half worth of sugar. Yeah, it's unbelievable, but they are tasty. Yeah, very good, very good. To Cam when you go to the wedding, don't have twisted teas. A void them. And then if you do drink white clause, just say you lost a prop bet and you have to drink as many white claus as possible. Yeah, and then you'd now you have to drink twisted or white clause, because if your friends catch you drinking white clause, like for Dave and I, we don't really care if anybody makes fun of us. But for you, if you drink white clause, may not be good. I got picked at profile. No, absolutely, and also the white after drinking truly he's for so long do yeah, one of the at the time, one of the only males that 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 the guy, the guy that beer distributed, gave him to you in a like a paper bag. So nobody saw you carrying them out. Well, yeah, and then then the Guy Walking out said, Oh, do you get those free with your box of Tamp on? So I knew that was facing a storm of criticism after I heard that. Yeah, I never really bothered me. And somebody said that because my wife was drinking regular beer and I was drinking a white claw. And you know what, one little secret to which 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 not really a mixer because it's almost the same amount of alcohol, but it adds some. So now you're going from now you're doing. It's a whole another level alcoholism. But yeah, it is. It is tasty, though, but it's still you can just say that's just it's just soda water. You can ease, you can say that just. Yeah, I've tried that. I don't get away with anymore. So...

...lots of covered. Yet He's hidden behind the SOFA. All right, Dave Isaac Bruce Coming up. Looking forward to it.
