Three, select styles only. What's up date? Hey, gus, hey much, hey. These weekly Huddles are getting pretty popular, I think. I know I'm hearing a lot of positive feedback. So this week we change it up a little bit. We actually gave Kama mic I don't know if it's a good or bad thing. He's like Boba booy he has he's just kind of like hit the button and come in like and then we get the like rip on them. Call you boss. Yeah, both off with upball. So Day. What was your weekend like? Well, it was similar to the weekend before more call it or more high school football stun we saw impressive effort by the central Catholic Vikings totally dominate our good friend Eric Casparovitch's team, which is very unusual because that doesn't happen very often. But they were just out man nothing against the kids. Tried hard. But with that line of stuff, went to that one night went to my neighbor's forty birthday party. Well, I said it was a great time. I don't. I don't think Kelly and I knew anyone there except them. So it was an interesting experience. Usually you talk or do you just drink white class? Well, I was silent and then I drank white clause and I talked a lot to lose my standard formula for social events. So yeah, like you, let the let the true Dave come out after a few low white clause. Sadly it takes a bunch of white clause. Otherwise I would just be huddled...

...in the corner, but I did break out. Well, sounds like pine rich one coaches could have used a few white claus after that game. Yeah, that was that was I got to say that was a trouncing. But they're here. They're going to see him again in the playoffs, most likely. So so they bounced back. They'll know what what what they got to beat, that's for sure. Well, you were down in West Virginia. I think we're yet. We had to go to a cotton aleg any health network conference where Annie had to do some work for for her clinic, and then we had to come back. We actually got kicked out of the hotel. What happened? They only booked us for one night. We were supposed to take stay two nights down there at Stonewell Jackson Resort and and so my keys didn't work. So I went up to the front desk and I said, Hey, my key's not working. Can you help me out here? And they said we'll start. You only have a book look for one night. You're supposed to be checking out and I said okay. Well, can you just change that and keep us for tonight because we're supposed to go to the SPA on Sunday, which I was looking I haven't had that and while I was looking forward to go and get a massage. But she said well, sorry, sir, we have soldier room and the hotels completely booked. So there's nothing I can do for you. Wow. So basically, Annie and I I say take your four hundred dollars worth of spot trevens and go home. So basically that's what we did. We canceled everything, got in a car draw back home. But in in a sense we wanted to go back home anyway because Abbey was home. She was watching a dog's and she cooked some amazing mills and so I got to go home and eat some really good food and and see her and K which was great. Well, and also luckily there's lots of other alternatives to go to in the resort world other than Oldstone Wall. Yeah, you may think about next time. Yeah, actually, chat. We got there Friday around thirty and Annie had our conference...

...at night and then I went and played golf by myself, which was actually a lot of fun. I like doing that. I skipped some groups and I actually played in about to two hours and fifteen minutes. Going to say you must have flew through. Yeah, it was a nice course. It's an arn a palmer course. It's pretty tough, it's pretty tight. You got to kind of be accurate. It a shadow Kay shot in eighty five. But did you use I heard this term I'd never heard before, but I think it's common in the golfing world. But at that forty someone asked me about golf and they talked about their foot wedge. I know I don't. I try not to, although I guess when you're by yourself. Well, actually I did because, yeah, I don't like to, but there was a couple times for my ball absolutely plug because they like we're overwatering the fairways. Yeah, and it was. I literally had to like take my club and dig it out of the mud. It's not like a natural current. So yeah, I think in that case you're a lot of make you pull your ball out and clean it up. Technically, I think it's all that. They just did that in the pros. I just saw where there are allowed to lift and clean because it was so money somewhere. I was watching on the ESPN. We able to watch games this weekend. I did so. We got back Saturday night. Watch a few college not too too many, but I really paid attention to what William Mary. William Mary had a big loss. They're supposed to be to Albany and up losing late. It was a tough game. And then Sunday watched a lot of the games, because I think I am high points this week in fantasy for my league. So you think, or you know? I mean, well, it's not over. There's a couple other couple of me. Something's yeah, but I don't I don't think they can catch up. I missed most of the football. I did watch the hurdles. was supposed to be his last game, but he didn't even make it to that point. They'd fired him before the day. Wait, but but he didn't he do a pregame press conference?...

Oh Yeah, like about the lineup and everything. Think he knew he's going to be fired because he actually did his pregame interview, turn in the lineup card and then he was called in and like a well, they kind of had to fire him, didn't they? Because if they're going to fire Joe Madden in Chicago, Yeah, who's actually one well, chip, chip, taking the team to the playoffs and all that. Right, you mean you can only be so tolerant, right, but Huntington not getting fired is it kind of weird? Well, I mean I think it's bad because just from the standpoint of of the trade, the recruiting, the the players they've gotten in, what that all comes down to the general manager. Right, the head coach isn't hiring, firing, scalps and all that stuff. It's a general manager. Well, it's like like, you know, if you were to give him a batting average, it's about he's hitting about one and thirty. If you look at the trades and what they got back in return for Archer deals, one of the worst really possibly in a history of baseball, certainly in the pirates world. Even then. He Look at Garrett Cole. I know he was kind of not floundering. He seemed to reach his peak here, but he's the best pitcher in baseball now and they got four mediocre players in return. But you know, I understand that the problem was he wasn't getting any better. He was very stagnant here. No, it's try not word yeah, well, but when you look at coaching like for a player to be stagnant that has unbelievable potential, you either are a coach who can bring that out or a coach that puts it at bay. Well, and I think Serridge has to be the next one to go to. Yeah, they're pitching good. It's like you hear the strategy of them. He's they're trying to have him pitch to contact and all that. Meanwhile he's leading. He's over three in a strike out. Well, he's your strike out pitcher. Well, usually when a new head coach comes in he brings...

...his staff that he wants and I'd write probably what's going to happen and what harld probably is pretty happy. He's gonna go on vacation for two years. Well, he had a gigantic smile when he left there. He was writing in the cart leaving the stadium. They showed him and he looked as happy as he's ever looked. Right, he just got paid six million and he doesn't have to heat the through the drudgery. He looked like every pen state fanly leaving Maryland. Yeah, and there were Gad I was talking about. That's one part of a game. I did see it look like it. What are they calling it? Beaver Stadium South? Yeah, something like so camp. Your Stadi him south camp. Have you ever painted your face to go to a Penn State football game? No, I'm not really a big face painter type of guy, but I do wear georts a lot to the pens day football games. Is that a thing? Oh yeah, I mean you got your blue jeans? Do you a little custom cut above the knee? And Yeah, me and my buddies just always do that. It's wait to today. Have like all like do. Where your pockets hanging out the bottom? Yeah, sometimes, yeah, pockets would be hanging kind of like a southern thing. Whatever does well, the new and why do they do that? Pain State? Well, now then this season the new thing to call the running back core is the lawn boys. So you know, you got to put your jeans on and work out the lawn. So you have overalls to now I haven't acquired those yet, but I have seen that's one of the big things that the girls where the Penn State Games overalls. I've seen that a good bit. Do you like so? Do they give you the marshmallows when you go in? Do they student section still throw at marshmallows? Now, I haven't seen that really, but when I was on ninth grade that they you are I broke my neck. My cousin Mitch was playing for Penn State. I remember sitting in the student section with my neck brakes on throwing Marchmell oats. Wow, which is Graz. Who Do you throw them at? The just throw I don't know who they throw. That was the thing they used to do. I remember that. Yeah, I think I used to be much more of a thing now at the big thing is like the chicken basket, like that's like the food that you eat at beer stadium is he's like chicken. That's like amazing. It's amazing. I think...

...it's because our agricultural department so good it is. That's what pit would say right day. There's a little yeah, headed up by the football team, but they do. To give them credit, they do graduate a very high percentage of athletes. We have to graduate the most CEOS in the country. I just want to throw that out there as well. And it pen states creamery is very good too there where they make ice cream, and also their golf course maintenance department. There's yeah, they can grow grass like nobody else. Yeah, all different varieties. Yeah, California said to me. Yeah, blue grass. There's a lot of good stuff. What else they growing up their camp? They're just growing good students, I mean, and we had we just had brad from naps on and his program and helping athletes convert their skills in a business skills. That's going on at Penn State. Yeah, there's a lot of good stuff to talks about that great film department at Penn State. Yeah, Great Film Department. We're reaping the benefits. We all right now, Dave, I know, look, he's making his debut with the microphone and he's doing great. I know he's he's unbelievable. So, Cam what would you do over the weekend? I was at Penn State. Actually this weekend I went out to see some roommates and I actually had a hotel snapphoo kind of like yours. Guess where? I had both nights booked, but I got charged twice for the same room. Somehow. Didn't happen to you before. Now I don't think that's having me. I got I got actually a free room a couple weekends ago to a wedding, which is sweet. Oh, yeah, that's a wimber. He went. I was an ogreshers on US went to a wedding. Yeah, we but yeah, I had I had a root awakening in my bank account when I woke up in the negatives and I was a little confused. So that was that was a weird thing. But the rest of the time was great. We got to see penn stay put up a clinic on Maryland. That was a lot of fun to watch and reconnecting with some roommates and things like that. So Cam sounds like Penn state is a place to be on the weekend,...

...even for an away game. We should go up. We should make a Rudi up there. Yeah, I don't really want to go in there playing at home. Maybe it's away game. Yeah, so actually we can actually move around the campus. Yes, because I think it's a little crowded. Yeah, the away game is that was kind of our mentality this weekend was, let's go for an away game because it's going to be just so packed in Cam. Do you play rugby at Pin State? I did not at Penn State University Park. I played at Penn State Altuna and once I got to university park I realized the skill, the skill set, was a lot to be desired. With me they're so I decided to focus more on my my school stuff. What was your position? I was a scrum half, and that that position where is number nine on the field, and that's actually considered the quarterback role. If you're going to compare the two Dave Trivia question, who do you think the greatest rugby team ever or still is the greatest rugby team. Yeah, cuntry worldwide. I you have no way of answering that, cam. Well, Dave, I'll let you know. It's actually the New Zealand all blacks. They have a nice yeah, they have the most titles and, I believe, the most victories internationally. I was thinking the Southern Hemisphere, but then I didn't know if that plate, that that was a shown rules football or how that is. Well, I think there's some of that too, but the all blacks. Haven't you ever seen them do their day? What's that dance called Hakka? The HAKKA, I know I am familiar with the Hakka, if we wanted, because I've been spoken about the university Arizona yet in this little segment, so let me just jump in right in. They used to do the east to have a lot of Polynesian players and they would do the Hakka before that. So I'm very familiar with it. But then it got Bam. That's very, very common, and especially with the Polynesian people. Yes, the reason, but that dance signifies is we're going to beat you in this war and then eat your army. That is what it is and it's very threatening and a lot of the...

...other teams internationally, when they play the all blacks, it's quite the sight when they do the Hakka. It was then considered offensive and now they have discontinued. But what if they lose? Then does that army eat them? All Blacks do not lose. That's the thing. Well, they are pretty intimidating if you watch that before like the game, like I couldn't imagine if that happened in the NFL and like the steelers, like tonight, the steelers in the Bengals, and like they're both doing like a Hawka like before the game. Yeah, back facing off, like at midfield, like it would like Ray Lewis in the middle of it. That's kind of didn't he kind of do a Hakka? Yeah, like coming out of the yeah, the other thing, who would would lead the way for the steelers? Dave Um? That's a great question. Guy. WHO's the leader? Is there one? I don't know. It's not. Boy Ryan Switzer. I think it became a with myself. Yeah, he's off to a slow start. We whop. All right. Who Do you think would lead the Hakka for the Cincinnati Bangles? The Bangles Hakka. I'm trying to remember their players, not Andy Dalton. Why, everybody? Just just think about this. Everybody for the HAKKA would have to come out. They'd all have to have a red WIG on. Andy Dalt would be leading away. They'd all be like gingers. Right. Well, WHO's The guy? Remember Their Defensive Lineman? Gino Atkins? Was He? He's Big Guy. Well, no, I'm think of the guy who used to have the long I believe he was Polynesian, speaking of Palmsian. Oh, yeah, he did. He looks like he could do the hot he could he? Maybe? Maybe, but yeah, I don't think he plays her anymore. I think it'd be pretty neat if the NFL did it. Yeah, be something that could extend the length of games even more for fallows here and old maybe's got all the styles you need right now, with up to fifty percent off store wide. Hurry in for the season's biggest trends, like rock star Jeans and Frost Free Jackets on sale. Jeans Star it just eighteen bucks for adults, twelve bucks for Kids,...

Did you see that? Seventy sports? I'd never miss it. I love it. Did you see the picture of who was the guy he just put on? Oh, Tom demc, I know it is. That is one of the great kickers in NFL history who was playing with a disability, but he certainly didn't see it that way. Yeah, has as described by super seventy sports, he played not with a right foot but with a hoof. You know it's great, though, Dave. At some point in future we will have them on the show.
