... How are you good? Thank you. Back here another week and huddle up with Gust Studios. We'll still looking for that title sponsor to name the studio after. Yes, that would be an honor to have title sponsor. It would be it would be great. It's such a beautiful facility that we're in. The eice something that a title sponsor would be very proud to be part of. They would be proud to be part of here the the E. See there's a hundred ninety companies in this building that are part of it and it would be great to have another one coming and really help us name this studio that we do our shows from. But how was your weekend? It was good, it was it started off we had a little western PA high school football on Friday watch my nephew team play. We got there little...

...late so we meet. He was already pulled at that point. You he already had his shoulder pads off, Jersey on. Yeah, eating seeds on the sideline and it was homecoming weekend for he's a Pine Richland Ram, so it was their homecoming. So I think he was starting to think about other stuff luke. So Luke had a good game. He's doing pretty well this year. Yeah, yeah, Git a couple. I think you had a couple touchdowns, a couple sacks, but we missed it all. You think he's going to be bigger, faster, stronger than his dad ever was? I don't know if that's possible, but he's going to broach that legend status. It's funny. That's funny. What else you do this weekend? Well then, so then we went to Deep Creek, Maryland, for our anniversary celebration. So that was in we rented a small cabin in mckenry, Maryland...

...and we're there about we're probably thirty hours total, but it was well spent. Is that Nice drive down that way? Beautiful drive, very scenic. I bet you in about two weeks it would be spectacular with the leaves changing. Yeah, just caught the beginning of some of that, but yeah, it was. It's interesting place down there. I highly recommend it for those if it's not been to deep creek. You got skiing and then you also have summer sports all in one place, right and one if they play Wolf aball down there, I would think they seem like they would be sophisticated enough to be able to handle all that, but you never know. Yeah, we went. We went further, a little further than the net to in Maryland, to savage river or lodge when Annie and I went a few weeks ago, and similar you know where it's beautiful. Leaves haven't changed yet. You're in the middle of the woods, but once those leaves start changing, as mountain areas it, there's no it's pretty earler. It's no prettier picture,...

...yes, but that's good. So you add a pretty eventful weekend and plush. You probably had volleyball. There's always volleyball. Yeah, another volleyball. It actually thinks kicked off on Thursday night with volleyball. I'm trying to remember who the Fox Chapel Fox is beat. It's there one of the first wins of the season. It was cheese. I can't even think of who was a plum, the plum, Mustang Plum mustake. So, Dave, what is one of your pet peeves when you're sitting at a volleyball game? I know you got to have a pet peeve of like going to your daughter's mass. Something irks you that that happens at volleyball matches. Well, it's opposing fans or people in the bleachers, something's got to get on your nerves. Well, I hate to say anything about the crowd that I generally sit with, because he couldn't be better to be a part of the experience. But what I will complain about is the venues that don't allow you to bring...

...like if you buy die coke and you get notches, you have to eat it outside of the gym. And like, you know, we're there for because my one daughter plays JV and the other, my oldest daughter, plays varsity. So it's like a three and a half to four our commitment and like you can't even you know, yeah, you're not sit down and eat your notchos in the gym. No, you have to stand outside. But then they went all the fans that come in by the food right, and they actually give plumb credit. They had a really good snack bar right within sight of our seats, but you weren't allowed to go taking in. You can see your seat, but you say can't see the kids playing. No, you can smell the walking Takas, but you can't bring them in. Yeah, yeah, it's so. That would be maybe it. The other thing that's a little that's interesting. I'm still a rookie watching volleyball at especially the high school level. But at time outs the the they always have lins. The home team provides lying. In this case it's girls volleyball. So...

...lying girls at time out, they they congregate at the referees stand and they talk to him and they laugh and they it looks like the best time. They almost like they bounce the volleyball back and forth. It's almost like a court jester and like entertaining. It's a crazy thing that we always I talked about it every week. They're no one else seems to be interested in I am curious about it. Like what do they do? Well, they just it's just weird. They all did with the coach or they with the there? No, no, it'd be girls like so like save Arci's playing the GV girls will be lions girls, but they go to the lions men and and he it looks like he tells jokes and stuff, and I was just wondering what's going on. I'd like to just be a part of that one time just to find out what's going on. But that'd be what we should do, is get you a uniform and see if we'd I get you in there. I could sneak in, like I could pretend I'm a ref, but then that's you start doing that and it's now. I think we need to get you a high school girls volleyball uniform to put on. That'd be yeah, it would be sure. One. Yeah, one on each leg.

Maybe I could fit. We those are small shorts. No, I can't get that image out of my head. Cam, you don't even yeah, I don't. You don't want that. Thank you for saying it's horrific, but it would it wouldn't be, it wouldn't be pleased. It wouldn't be really all that good. I think you stayed at home. Really this one. I did. There's time in a while, right, first time in a while, and took three days and clean my garage out. There are so much stuff in there and I took my first shot at putting stuff on let go. And when exactly is let go? You know, it's like an APP. You get on and you can take a picture of your stuff, sell it, put it, price it and okay, people in your area can see if they want to buy it. So I put all this stuff on that we didn't want anymore and the thing I had was Gabe had an old as powered car like OURC car. I was NA power to put it on. I'm like, I just want somebody to take it and use it. And said very seen in a box. No, like twenty...

...five bucks, wow, why? I can't remember what we paid for it. Some ridiculous yeah right, I just want somebody. I got more interest in that little car. But people asking so many questions, but then saying, well, I can't drive to pick it up. Can you meet me? Yeah, and like can you deliver it? And I'm like if to remind them, it's twenty five bucks, exactly exactly. And then then the worst, what other my other pet people, was people not reading the stuff about that. You wrote about it, that it hasn't been used in like two years, but it's set in a box. It's barely used. I don't know if it starts or not. And then going does it run? Yeah, I just said that it no, you know what I mean. It right. So you get a lot of those crazy questions like that. But then clean the garage. I'll put a bunch of stuff. I'm still waiting waiting to people will say hey, you know how much is there? I don't know. Some Lady Inbox me and and I put two dollars because I couldn't put linear foot for the trim, extra trim that I have. She's like, we take dollar. Know, she goes, is it two...

...dollars for everything? I said, well, it's like five hundred feet of linear feet of trim that goes around somebody's house. I don't think I it's two dollar. Do that. Yeah, not that I'm asking a lot for it, but she's still getting a great pair to what we cost us. Yeah, it's still it's still really good stuff. But it's been interesting to do that and go through that process. But after three days of doing that and moving everything myself, I couldn't walk very well Sunday night and Monday. That's everything was hurting back knee. You over extended, you're so overextended. So I know UNICE packs. Yeah, well, I know you mean with the dealing with the people on the sites, because we there's one that Kelly uses sometimes if we're giving way like mattresses and like furniture and stuff. But you give the dimensions on there, but then they say, Hey, we're going to be there and, you know, forty five minutes, you promise...

...you'll be there. Yes, please come buying and 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 Dude, how would I know that? Firstaw, the dimensions were on there, you know. Yeah, let's like like just read it, like there's two lines maybe to read. And if you read well, I put like the door on there. II. There's an old oak door from when we remodel the house. Yeah, and I put the dimensions on it and a lady goes, what, can I cut nine inches off of it? I'm like, well, yeah, you can, but it won't look good. It probably won't work if fall apart, right, and she has well, I can't use it. Then I'm like, well, the dimensions are right on there, like just read down. Just just scroll down and check it out. But so that was basically it. And then so I miss watching my fantasy and watching football. Why we we? Because we're in D creek. We missed. There was some pretty decent college football. I know pit had a big win, big tricker clay. Yeah, and Miss. I did even kind of like a reverse pass to score touchdown,...

...which was which was great for Pitt because if they would have lost that game, I think it would have been a downward spire. Yeah, well, would have been just hard to overcome that. That record. So big win against the top team. Yeah, that has really been prominent in college football for last few years. Yeah, so almost undefeated. Well, I think undefeated except for their bowl game that they played alls you. Yeah. Yeah, so goodwin for Pitt. What was he attenance? Like, I miss I'd see. They said it was pretty good. It's pretty lively. What if it was? It a Penn state attendance? But no, but, but, because I still have an issue with Pitt moving that football stadium off campus. Yeah, no, I think there's a lot of people that remember it as better times back then when they were called. My wife always talks about when her and Jason Sports and everybody's went to pit they used to have kegs and eggs. Yeah, and they'd have and they walk to the game. Yep, you know, for the Games. I mean, I I can understand why pit would put the basketball arena there, but I feel...

...like they haven't kept up to well, I think what what basketball should be at pit football. No, I'm saying that basketball cou built a basketball arena. Right, basketball hasn't kept up. Now I think the new coach maybe able to recruit a little bit better and get some new players in. Yeah, it's it's a tough recruiting spot pits in in general because they're a lot of colleges within a small amount of mileage that they're competing rights. But but the atmosphere of pick games, I want them to do well, even though I'm kind of an outside observer on but that to say, like the it's a sterile atmosphere. I mean it's banners. It's Pitt banners over permanent steeler stuff, right, you know, it just it's not and it's just weird. It's weird to go there and look at that and watch. Yeah, and it's tough. It's like the empty seats to it's kind of like when you go into the Pittsburgh Mills Mall. It's just empty and it feels weird.

But it could be a lot 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. I we got back in time for the I saw the steeler end of the Ravens game and then stealer. Well, our boy fits. He got mentioned and kind of upset about that. I don't know necessarily if he is is but you know, like watching him playing and doing thing out there. But I don't I don't think it matters who is going to be out there. They're going to have a rough here. Yeah, and it's just it's situation for him, like it's maybe it might be better for him not to be involved with you that he does have to feed a kids. So yeah, well, we said gets page, but he's staying healthy. Right to move to it. Maybe a new team next year. And I did share something on twitter where it showed his beard. His beard is beefy. Is it even thicker than yeah, it's looking pretty good. They asked him who has the best beer in a team and then he said somebody. He's sitting there second place. Yeah, I know it isn't the best. It's getting like Ki Sol...

...like it is. Yeah, it's yeah, fear that. I think Kisos talked about fitzes beer before. Well, yeah, when you're up in the upper echelon of the beard world, it's yeah, you know, it's just all you're not like all rich people. Should all read. Yeah, we should have. It's kind of like that. We should ask fitzy what beard oil he uses. Right, I don't think he use the rooming of its key. It's all in natural can get. I think it's a good place for him. The stores food it's sometimes ends out there, even inadvertently. Yeah, all right, we gotta go interview Leslie Visser. So it's going to be great. All Time Legend and sports broadcasting. Voted the number one female sportscaster of all time. It's just amazing. Her story is amazing, her credentials are amazing and can't wait to hear a story. Yeah, absolutely,.
