So how is your weekend, Dave? Well, firstof all, I think we should get a nickname for cam. I haveone. The producers Seducer Nice, but we've never seen him around anybody ofthe opposite sex. I don't know if we can use that. I've onlyseen him in this environment. Yeah, there you guys and some microphones inher room. Maybe we should call him Cam quarter. That's good. Yeah, I mean I feel would feel uncomfortable calling him the seducer if it's yeah, and I sitting in here and you guys do lock eyes quite often.I like Cam quarter. He's not smiling. He doesn't like Cam quarter. Can'tquors. Fine, was wait, was was? Was The seducer yourname in college? Now, that was I used to follow another group ofpodcasters and their producer. That's what they called him just as a joke,and I was thought it was funny. They made shirts and stuff. Well, did you have a nickname in college? Not that I could think of.Off the top of my head, just and it's pretty easy enough.It's kind of like Guss, nobody you knew. Yeah, sometimes you havenicknames behind your back. Yeah, that's hurt those before it. What itwas your nickname? Yeah, well, I've thought of some good ones foryou. That never stuck. Belgian bomber. Yeah, what about like it?In High School I never really had any. Just got gusp get onthe bus with gusts. Yeah, you know, nobody really had guss.Is Enough of a nickname, you know. Yeah, guess something sounds like anickname. Yeah, and it wasn't. You know, wasn't like I had, you know, like how they give like Italian guys nicknames, youknow, shoeless and all stuff. You know, I didn't. I neverhad anything like that. No, I never had any. That's the kindof nicknames. But I love giving nicknames. So we are big and our familygiven nicknames. MMM, like so Abbey is pean gunner's newgie and Gabeis sniff and then they just go on from there. And and then yourdogs also. Yeah, yeah, like like cocoa is our bulldog. Hernickname is gloom and Cheen and little guy color, a little girl and likeit's like there's all kind of names. Yeah, yeah, so nicknames arebig in our family. They called me biscuer. I don't know where thatcame from. Bisker, Bisker, that's what the the boys call me.ME. So now everybody calls me biscuer. Don't Call Me Dad, they callme biscuer and they call Annie Mao. You weren't CCEPT for NOWs Ain't Ohyeah, I can't even tell you...

...all the other ones we have foreveryone else. They call you Hagar. Yeah, well, it beats theones that used to have. Those were all over some of years. Well, they were. Well, there was dough boy, which is self explanatory. I think no explanation. Neither the other one was. I always thoughtwas kind of clever, bread basket, and I it could be maybe alongthe lines of Doughboy, but it was actually by until I was a freshmanin college. Sadly enough, I shot the basketball too handed and they justthought that was like Midwest Classic Doughboy or bread basket. You know, that'sjust like such a hardy. Did you make them all? I was prettyaccurate. You had to be your hands and sink realize you could side spin. Yeah, where you like, who used to shoot like that all thetime? Well, it was sort of like similar, like a Rick Berrysort of shot. It was you, Geld Zero Street cred, shooting ittoo handed. No matter how. You would show up with your short shorts, your I pulled up socks, your head band and shoot too handed.They were like, well, they just picking that guy first. Well,I think they just thought I was just trying to be funny, but thenthey were like waity, actually does do that. After like the third shot, they're like come on, Dave, come on, bread basket. So, bread basket. What did you do this weekend? Um, it's there'sa pattern and it's just because it's football season, but I'm I'm trying toremember Friday. Health to come back to Friday and not sure what happened onFriday this time. I was how the tell us? I don't know.Yeah, we'll get into you had a lot of driving. You didn't goto a PIRATECHAN game. It's this is one of the first weeks. No, I'm trying to I can't even think what we did. It was Ithink it was uneventful. Saturday, though, I was like I was very excitedbecause my ears and a wildcats were on at a time other than thirtynight. Yeah, so it was kind of fun to be able to watchthere. Did you go whenever to Premi any brothers? Who? Yeah,harmer. What did you eat there? The Fried Belogney Sandwich. Why wasthere? The College Games are long, so there was. It was abouta four hour stretch. So but yeah, I had their steak salads really goodand also then towards the end had some Korean barbecue boneless chicken. Soyou had dinner with the steaks out. Then you were there so long thatyou had to get snack again, and I think I actually had dinner beforeI arrived there and then I had dinner there and then I had a latenights now. All right. So with all that, you had to drinksomething. What was your drink of choice that night? Um, there's well, there's a few, but it one of them. I was trying tobe a little different. Yeah, just with I star. I was goingto double bloody Mary's. What is a double bloody Mary? Just double block, just double vodka. Do you like...

...him spicy? Um, and likeif form any much's known for Bloody Mary? No, not at all. Itwas I was just trying to mix things up. I just feelt likejust such a degenerate saying vodka tall. You know, whatever I say,I just tried to make it like a sound tropical or whatever. Yeah,so you went into the bartender and said, Hey, I'll have a double bloodyMary and put it on bread baskets tab like that's to me, likeyeah, and if that's t he look at you like like it was actuallymarry it. No, and I do like for me and he's I haveto say that one of my pet peeves with servers is when not just not. I mean there's only so much a server can do. Yeah, andone of them is just being friendly and saying hello, and she did neitherof those. So I didn't that. We started off kind of rocky andI think she could sense it. We weren't going to be very good friendsand it just it wasn't that part of my experience wasn't pleasant. So ifyou have an experience like that where you have a bad server, do youcut the tip? You know what? I still didn't cut it. Ijust because any because then I start to think. You know, first off, she deals with a lot of undesirables like the people surrounding me were.It wasn't as all star cast there, but do you think? And theyweren't nice to her, and she probably just lumps me in with that.So I try to be give. You think, as as a customer,you have a responsibility to mention to that person like, because I don't thinklike if you don't get them a good tip, they're just like still pissed, right, they just doesn't cheat something. Yeah, they doesn't cantion like hey, maybe it was because of what I did. Yeah, you thinkthat? Like, as a consumer we have a responsibility to say, Hey, you know what, you weren't that great, or here's some things youcould do. How do you think you can approach somebody like that? Well, it depends on the person. I can see. I could just tellshe wouldn't have been opened to my critique. So I just decided to just bequiet. Continue that she was risk with the orders and she anticipated.Now she did a pet peeve of not being friendly or smiling or really makingeye contact, but if you take that away, she was. She anticipated, which I was like when they anticipate your drink at about the twenty fivepercent level, left in the glass. They make you another one and bringit over and not say do you want another one, because that becomes embarrassing, always saying yes, right, right. She noticed you're you're double bloody.Mary. Was Getting Low on Mary. Yeah, and she said, allright, this guy, she's drinking bloody Mary's he serious? I'm noteven going to talk to him, I'm just bringing him another drink. Yes, I mean it was just she was a service person, been she didthat part wall. I just wish she was friendlier. Right, that's all. What now? So that was and then and then Sunday watch a stealergame, another debaucle, lots of just...

...more. It's the same week afterweek. Bad officiating, lots of challenges, lots of well, I was likecoming home and I saw that that Lamar Jackson at three interceptions. I'mlike Oh, but then I look at the score and it's like they're downby three there up by three. It is so close. Yeah, theynever stealers charge of the game. They just can't. They're unable to catalizeon it, just like they had in week two. I guess it wasn'tSancisco. How many turnout of five and they got six points out of fire. It's what it is. Similar not capitalizing. It's just, you know, it's kind of the same. Now they're even going to be a moretroubler down to the third quarterback. Yeah, and it saw just a vicious hitthat resulted in scary moment. I think he's going to be okay,but he was. Mason Rudolph was just he was lying lifeless almost on theon the on the far hun none there. Yes, you can. I canimagine. I in similar if we go back to when I bump myhead on the freezer. Yeah, was almost there, but you had nobodyrunning out and saying Kelly just came out and said all days in the freezeragain and she left the room. Yeah, and just left that the hungry manthere to thaw on the ground. Yeah, he'll be all right.Yeah, get up, Dave. So, yeah, that it was just itwas more the same with the steelers. But hopefully then, fortunately, divisionshorrendous. I think now is it's turning out. So they're still init, you know, but there's I don't know, they needed iron somestuff out pretty quick here. Yeah, and then you came over to ourhouse last night to have because and and Kelly haven't seen each other in awhile and we had a you know, catch up session. Yeah, andthen, well, I was filling my face with pasta that my wife madeand red wine and yeah, as I had a fresco. Now we're makingfun of me that I did that, but I did. I had thatfresco. I just drove back for six hours from William and Mary, soI did have a little calm me down to little. Yeah, it's ridingin the car and the Turnpike on Pennsylvania is stressful. Cocoa was full life. You can get like always. Yeah, you just jumping up, lots ofsnorting and stuff. But in the only reason I bring that up isbecause we were watching gunners movie, Solo Orange, which was really a treat, excellent movie, strong message and he did a great job and he reallydid. I'm really proud of him. The movie is is it's not likea fun movie, you know what I mean? No, it's a veryserious movie about a serious subject and I thought for his first time doing it, he did it. He did a great job and it was a lotof work and he put the time and effort into it. I mean he'sin a tough position to you know, he's playing someone just who really tooktheir own life. Just. Well, you're earlier. Yeah, and Iget sad. Movie makes me sad and cry because I I mean, Iknow that didn't happen to gunner, but...

I just picture that sometimes. Andthen we went to the opening for that movie at the school and John's parentswere there, and having to see them and know that they had to dealwith losing a child in that way. It's very powerful. Right and then. But also I watch it and I laughed because that's my son and Iknow I was quirks and everything. Yeah, but watching him like, I knowhe doesn't smoke and whatever has watching him smoke makes me laugh so hardbecause he I can tell. You may not seen it, but yeah,it to me it looks like he's so awkward trying to hold a cigarette todo this for yeah, you know, he didn't really want to do it, I think did the people that don't know them, though, I thinkit looked really good. Yeah, I always use, like I said lastnight, Don Draper as the best smoker on the screen. Right, it'sand he wasn't far off a don draper. Yeah, I can see how youwould. I kept telling Gut n when I first saw the movie.I'm like, well, why don't you hold it like this or hold it, you know, like he said, I don't know, dad. Theydidn't really care. So I just held it what I thought kind of asophisticated weight did it, but his fingers are like straight up and down,like I don't know. Yeah, no, that's true. It is a greatand that. But I learned. We learned also last night that yourdaughter's a great artist. I didn't even know that. You did told me. Oh, yeah, we just you know, you be keeping her secret? Yeah, well, she's does great stuff. Keeps her off her phone, which we think is great. Now it's started off, as I couldjust an activity that way, but as she's really now she's having some ofher friends parents give her pictures to paint all they're putting up in their houseand stuff. So yeah, Alley's killing it. So, yeah, butthere she's. She enjoys it and she's always looking for stuff to paint.So if anyone wants to submit an idea to huddle up with gustcom yeah,that'd be great. Say can submit a picture and that she can pay it. She can paint it for him. We're gonna I'M gonna submit a picturefor her to paint one of her dad. Well, we were like landscape scenes. Well, it's kind of a landscape scene. Well, yeah,we're getting back into the nickname stuff. I think when you say that breadbasket. Yeah, so you were down in Virginia. We did. Wewent. We Friday. We left. Took US eight, almost eight hoursto get to Virginia, to Williamsburg Virginia because of traffic on ninety five,and it's just miserable. That's always had our dogs. We took the dogs. So we went to gunners Abbey and Gabe drove down from Philly, metus there and we went to the dog stayed at Gunner's house. But wewent to gunner's house and it was a wreck. Well, you mentioned thatyou helped clean the bathroom. My job, and he said I'm not doing I'lldo all the rest, but you clean the bathroom. So I tookfull responsibility and I went over the top. Yeah, I went to target.I didn't even know what I was buying, but I bought like everykind of cleaner they had and dust rushes and dues. Feel strain and Icleaned a shower, took the doors off...

...like and just scrubbed everything and itjust took me about three hours and I still think I have a faint smellof scrubbing bubbles. I thought I kind of got a whiff of that onthose. So, but then Thursday before we left, we made them allkind of food for Abby, gunner and gay. We made them and hemade sagetting meat balls, she made chicken pop hye, we made homemade applesauce, we made banana chocolate chip muffins. Wow, and so we went overboard, took it all down the kids. They all left and then Saturday wewent to the game after I cleaned his bathroom. So Watch William andMary play Villanova, which was a great game, but they lost by sevenin the end. But gunner is an assistant coach and offense signals of plays. In thought it was great to get to watch him do it. Yeah, I think he really likes it, because if he didn't, he wouldn'tbe out there. But the other part is I said, I'm not payingall this money for you to go to college to be a coach. Yeah, make sure she should go to class and he shoes. Yeah, becausehe spends a lot of hours, you know he loves it. Spends alot of hours in a football building. But you also have a ten pagepaper right this Friday. Yes, got to get that done. It's abalance. And then Saturday went to have a place called Manhattan bagels down there, when pick bagels up for everyone, took it back game bagels and thenwe got back in a car with the dogs and took another six hours toget home and then you guys came over. It was fast. Yeah, withthat drive, though, is something most done. It's never easy goingpast a ninety five in that well, ninety five from DC to to Richmondis just a worch Snurvata road. And then pick like like a Friday todo it, probably night, was just unbelievable. Yeah, that's the horriblething to have to do just people don't know how to drive. Like,how hard is it like if you're not going as fast as the left laneanybody else is, just get over. Yeah, but that's but inevitable.You see somebody from Georgia going like sixty or sixty five, saying I'm goingto speed limit, and then there's like a whole line of cars and holdingeverything. Well, how many? Luck at some point it's like four laneson each side or something, isn't it? Oh, it's me five some time. Yeah, like there shouldn't be that kind of block. They dohave like for the first twenty five miles where they have the h of theeasy pass. Yeah, so I take that and like you go for twentyfive miles pretty fast, but then you get out into normal traffic. Yeah, and you're just miserable for a good another hour. Yeah, that's that'sa tough stretch. DC's a beautiful place to hang, but the drivings rightand this right. So that was a good game. Villaeva was good team. They beat him, but it was just overall a quick, good weekendand then coming in today and and having some great guests join us and hopefullyin the future our fans are going to hear some great news about houttle up. There's some exciting stuff. There's some really exciting stuff that, once wefinalize that, will be able to tell...

...all our guests. Yeah, readingover the contracts between shows here. Yeah, and so we're excited about that campquarter. I think it's pretty pumped about it. His nitney lions ata nice weekend again, I'm humped. Any lines are five an hour?Brea got a fresh contract on our table here, or readding and some sweetguests? Did ninny lions continue to breathe through the overrated big n yeah,and we'll see who they play this week. camp. This week is, Ibelieve I was state cyclones. The Cyclones, Oh, just just theHawk eyes. Yeah, the Hi guys. They're seventeen more tense. Michigan beatthe Hawkeyes. So pen state to be able to beat tough. Iwas difficult because I remember from Games were my beloved wildcats would play at Iowa. There was data home and home series. They kept the grass really long becausewe were a faster team, but the long grass neutralize that and thenthat was it. Under the hidden FRY regime. He was kind of aold school you know, always hated at I'm like, if you're faster,fast, I don't care what you run on. But because we lost,we like to use that as a reason. Oh yeah, that's true, thatthe true, because they have to run on the same turf. Yeah, it's like the grass thing get short when they had the ball in offense. You know what I mean, yeah, like that just made no sense.Now, if you're going to Philly and played on in the old turf, that was brutal stuff. But can't you say the same thing that theywere playing on the same turf? Yeah, yeah, that. But do youremember that when who was at that went to Philly and they said we'renot playing today because of the turf? Was actually that bad? Why?I can't remember that. I just remember all hot it would get the turf. Oh, the old estro turf. Yeah, yeah, it's ridiculous.They put like boil in their shoes stuff to try to actually would cook it. Yeah, said of like protecting it. Yeah, those were you know,I love the Cookie Cutter Stadiums. All right. So last thing,Dave. What's your favorite super seventy sports from this week over the weekend?Um, well, I thought the one that was artfully done was the daisymay daisy Duke. Oh, yeah, I didn't see that one. Well, except that you showed it to me. It's not the shouldn't be last night. Or No, no, it wasn't daisy Duke. That wasn't Huh. All right, I don't think it was all right. My maybe Iwas that it's possibly I was dream maybe you got your your Linda carters anddaisy dukes and all. Well, the Linda Carter than we can. Thatcould be second place now. My favorite one was, I don't know ifyou saw where he talks about this. He goes this glorious bastard barely madeit through something.

It's it's the best and the RECY CAPMAN has had some classic ones. On to lot there was a block or charge, I think it wastwo days go. That's look. I look like it was a resulted indeath. The Guy, the guy, he just he jumped off a reallytall wall, was going to crash under a table like in wrestling, andfell short, head first and he almost like he wedged himself into the ground. There's just so many of those. It's like what a people thinking?Yeah, a lot of people like filming themselves breaking tables. There's just someguy like named bread basket on top of a roof saying I'm gonna jump andcrush at table. Yeah, it's usually not a good formula. All right. So we got doughboy, bread basket sidekick.
