Thank you back here, another wee, an huddle upwith Gus Studios, Wel, still looking for that title, sponsor to name the studio after yes, that would be an honor to have titlesponsor it would be. It would be great. It's such a beautiful facility thatwe're in the EIC something that a title spons be veryproud to be part of. They would be proud, oby part of here, the the EICthere's a hundred ninety companies in this building that are a part of it andit would be great to have another one come ing and really help us name, this studio thatthat we do our shows from. But howwas your weekend? It was good. It was it started off. We had a little westernPA high school football on Friday Watch, my nephew team play. We got there alittle late, so we me he was already...

...pulled at that point hs. He already hadhis showder pads off Jersey on yeah eating seeds on the sideline, and itwas homecoming weekend for he's a pine, Richl and Ram. So it was therehomecoming, so I think he was Starti to think about other stuff hluke. So Luke Kad, a good game he'sdoing pretty well this year, Yeah Yeah Hehet a couple. I think he had a coupletouchdowns a couple sacks, but we missed it all. You think he's going tobe bigger, faster stronger than his dad ever was. I don't know if that'spossible, but he's gonna Brooach that Legendtas it's funny, that's funny what else youdo this weekend? Well, then, so, then we went to Deep Creek Maryland for our anniversarycelebration, so that was in we rented a small cabin in mckenry Maryland...

...and we're there about we'reprobablythirty hours total, but it was well spent. It's a nice drive down that way,beautiful drivery scenic. I bet you in about two weeks. It would bespectacular with the leaves changing yeah just caught the beginning of someof that, but yeah it was it's a interesting placedown there. I highly recommend it for those Ho 've not been to deep creek,you got skiing, and then you also have summer sports all in one place rightand whan. If they play whiff aball down there, I wouldnt think they seem likethey would be sophisticate enough to be ale to handle all that. But you neverknow yeah we went. We went further a little further than the net to inMaryland to Savage River Lodge Wan Anny, and I went a few weeks ago and similar. You know where it's beautifulleaves haven't changed yet Yeu're in the middle of the woods. But once thoseleave start changing those mountain areas, it there's no, it's peak prettyearlier. It's no prettier picture, yes,...

...but that's good, so youa pretty eventfulweekend and plus you proyay had volleyball, there's always ball yeahother volleyball. It actually thinks kicked off on Thursday night withvolleyball. I'm trying to remember who the Foxshapel foxes beat it's theire, one of the first ones. If the season it wasJeez, I can't even think of who was a plum- the Plum Lustan Club, MUS tank,so Dave. What is one of your pet peeves when you're sitting at a volleyballgame? I know you got to have a pet peeve of like going to your daughter'smass something urts, you that that happens at volleyball matches, wether,it's opposing fans or people in the bleachers something's got to get onyour nerve. Well, I hate to say anything about the crowd that Igenerally sit with, because he couldn't be better to be a part of the experience. But what Iwill complain about is the venues that don't allow you to bring...

...like. If you buy Di Coke and you getnotches, you have to eat it outside of the gym and, like you know, we're therefor because my one daughter plays JV and the other, my oldest daughter,plays varsty. So it's like a three and a half to four hour commitment and,like you can't even you know, yeah if you're not sit down and eat your nocosin the gym. No, you have to stand outside, but then it went all the fansthat come and by the food right and they actually, I give plum credit. Theyhad a really good snackbar right within sight of our seats, but you weren'tallowed to go. Takeinn can see your seats, but you say I can't see the kidsplaying. No, you can smell the walking Takas, but you can't bring them in yeahyeah, it's so that would be maybe it the other thing. That's a little. That's interesting, I'm still rookiewatching volleyball at especially the high school level, but at time outs thethe they always have lines. The home team provides line. In this case. It'sgirls Voe, also Lin girls. At time out.

They they congregate at the referee,stand and they talk to them and they laugh and they it looks like the besttime they almost like they bouance the volleyball back and forth. It's almostlike a court jester and like entertaining it's a crazy thing that wealways I talk about it every week there no one else seems to be interested. I Iam curious about it like what do they do? Well, they just it's just weird:they all LIV with the coach or they with the there. No no it'd be girls,like so like say: Varce's playing the JV. Girls will be the lions girls, butthey go to the lins men and then it looks like he tells jokes and stuff,and I always just wondering what's going on I'd like to just be a part ofthat one time just to find out what's going on, but a that'd be. What weshould do is get you a uniform and see if we could et you in there I couldsneak in like I could pretend Ti'm a wrath, but then that's you start doingthat and it's no. I think we need to hate you. High School girl, volleyballuniform to put on that'd, be yeah, be...

...so one yeah one on each leg. Maybe I couldfit Wei. Those are small shorts. I can't get that image out of my head.Cam, you know yeah, I don't you don't want that. Thank you for sait, terrific, but itwouldit would't. be it wouldn'tbe plan. It wouldn't be really all that good. I think you stayed home reallythis one. I did s time in a whileright first time in a while and took threedays and cleaned my garage out there as so much stuff in there, and I took myfirst shot at putting stuff on, let go and when exactly is let go. You knowit's like an APP you get on and you can take picture your stuff sell it put itprice it. then. Okay, people in your area can see if they want to buy it. SoI put all this stuff on that. We didn't want anymore and the thing I had washGabe had an old gas powered car like RC CAR IWAS go power to put it on and likeI just want somebody to take it and use it. Ans vry seen in a box no liketwenty five bucks, Wow Wy. I can't...

...remember what we paid for it's someridiculous yeah right and I just went somebody. I got more interest in thatlittle car, but people asking so many questions but then saying well, I can'tdrive to pick it up. Can you meet me yeah and like can you deliver it andI'm like if yo remind them, it's twenty five bucks exactly exactly and thenthen the worst? What O my other pet people is people not reading the The stuff about that? You wrote aboutit that it hasn't been used in like two years, but it's sat in a box, it'sbarely use. I don't know if it's Hart for not and then going does it run yeah.I just said that it. No, I know what I mean right, so you get a lot of thosecrazy questions like that, but then clean the garage, I'll put a bunch ofstuff on still waiting up waiting to peoplewill, say: Hey, you know how muchis there. I don't know some lady imbox me and I put two dollars because Icouldn't put liner and foot for the trim extra trim that I have shes likeLe Tape dollar. No, she goes. Is it two...

...ar for everything? I said: Well, it'slike five hundred feet of lineor feet of trim. That goes around somebody'shouse. I don't think it's to to do that. Yeah know not that I'm asking a lot forit, but she's still getting agreed paire to what we cost is yeah. It'sstill it's Sol, really good stuff, but it'sbeen interesting to do that and go through that process. But after threedays of doing that and moving everything myself, I couldn't walk very well Sunday, night and Monday. That's everything was hurting back Kmee, youoverextended your sover extended. So I know you nowes packs yeah. Well, I know what you mean withthe dealing with the people in these sites,because we there's one that Kelly uses, sometimes if we're giving way likemattresses and like furniture and stuff, but you give the dimensions on there,but then they say: Hey we're going to be there in youknow forty five minutes, you promise...

...you'll, be there. Yes, please combineand get it and then they come and then the things are, you know they go well.This is too big to fit my place. You know and I'm like well the do. Howwould I know that first, the dimensions were on there. You know yeah, let'slike like just read it like there's two lines, maybe to read and if you readwell, I put like the door on there. I I there's an old oak door from when weremodeled the house yeah and I put the dimensions on it and the lady goes.What can I cut nine inches off of it? I'm like well yeah you can, but itwon't look good. It probably won't work and fall apart right and she goes well.I can't use it then I'm like well. The dimensions are right on there like just to read down just ru, just scrolldown and check it out, but so that was basically it and then so. I MITwatching my fantasy and watching football. Why Wen w? Because weere inDee Creek we missed, there was some pretty decent college football and apit had a big Wim big tricker play an I miss. I didnen kind of like a reverse,pass to score touchdown, which was...

...which was great for pit, because ifthey would have lost that game, I think it would have been a downward spirenyeah. Well, it would have been just hard to overcome that that record, sobig win against the top team yeah. That has really been prominent in collegefootball for the last few years, yeah so almost undefeated. Well, I thinkunderfeat, except for their bowl game, that they played Allat, Sho, yeah, yeah,so good win for pit. What was theattendance? Like I misse, I didn't see. They said it was pretty good I's,pretty lively, all righ. What if it was it a penn state attendante, but no, butbut GOS. I still have an issue with Pitt: moving the football stadium offcampus yeah. No, I think, there's a lot of people that remember it as better times back thenwhen they were got. My wife always talks about whenher and Jason Sports and everybody o eat went to pit they used to have cagsand eggs yeah and they have and then walk to the game. Yeap you know for the Games, I mean...

I can understand why Pitt Wull put thebasketball Arin o there, but I feel like they haven't kept up too well. I, though, what what basketballshould be a pit football? No, I'm saying H, basketball,CO, builts, a basketball, RENA right, basketball hasn't kept up. Now. I thinkthe new coach may be able to recruit a little bit better and get some newplayers in yeah. It's it's a tough, recruiting spot pits in in generalbecause theyre a lot of colleges within a small amount of milage that they'recompeting ruines, but but the atmosphere of PIC Games. I want them todo well, even though I'm kind of an outside observer on them, but that tosay, like the it's is sterile atmosphere. I mean it's banners. It'spit danners over permanent steeler, stuff, Ri ht. You know it just it's notit's just weird! It's weird to go there and look at that and watch yeah, andit's tough. It's like he empty seats too. It's kind of like when you go intoPittsburgh. Mills Mall, which is empty,...

...and it feels weird, but it could be alot better. It could be a lot lot better like what I don't even know.Like I walk, I don't even walk through there anymore and then NFL wise. We gotback in time for the I saw the steeler, the end of the Ravens game and thenstealing. Well, our boy fitzy got manged and kind of upset about that. Idon't know necessarily if he is, but you know like watching them playing anddoing this thing out there, but I don't. I don't think it matters who is goingto be out there they're going to have a rough year yeah, and it's just it ssituation for him like it's May. Maybe it might be better for him not to beinvolved. What d you thought he does have to feed e kids, so yeah wehe stillgets page ma, but he's staying healthy right to move to a maybe a new teamnext year and I did share something on twitter. Where showed as beard as beardis beefy, is it even thicker yeah it's looking pretty good. They aske him whohas the best beerd in a team and then he said Somebodye's he saidin theirsecond place, yeasisn't the best it's getting like. Keysol, like it is yeah,it's yeah fear the. I think kisoas...

...talked about fitzis peer before wellyeah when you're up in the epper echelon of the beard world yeah. Youknow it's just t all you how like all rich people, shoul ore yeah. We shouldave its kind of like that. We should ask fifty what beard oil he uses right.I don't think Heus the rooming of its key. It's AL, a natural. I think it's agood place for in the store as food. It sometimes ends up there eveninadvertently ye all right. We got to go interview, Leslie Viser, so it'sgoing to be great. All Time.
