Hey everyone, thanks for joining uson our weekly huddle again. Guss fraud here and I'm with my cohost DaveHagar low gus, and we want to talk to you about what has happenedto us in the last week on our weekly huddle. So, Dave,what was your last week like? There was lots of birthday celebrations and therewas doctor's visits. There's another head bump. There's a lot of stuff that oneon. All right. So, since we've heard about previous head bumps, tell me what. How in the world did you bump your head again? Were you digging into fridge at when? I am not this time. No, I was trying to arrange some wires near the mantle of my fireplaceand I bump my temple area at about twenty five miles an hour speed witha corner of the mantle. So that was it was unbelievable and I sawwhite for like three seconds, little flashes of like lightning. It was justlike white. It was just like a white out. Did you go downor did you like were you just been over? No, I I wasdidn't even know what is happening. So I kind of put my hands onmy knees. But then I came up strong and I hit the bottom Hafyou got. You Got Mad at the INN inanimate object. I got doesn'tmove that. You hit the yes, it was probably my fault, notits fault, but it got the brunt of my hit. I've done thatso many times, where you hit something, you get mad and you just kickit or whatever you do. Yeah, and then my daughter was sitting theretoo, and I so I'm trying not to embarrass myself in front ofmy daughter, but I couldn't help but hit the thing. Did you?Did you think you scared her a little bit? She probably saw another sideof me. She wish she hadn't. The Hulk. The Hulk was comingout. I wasn't. It wasn't real pretty so so okay. So thenyou hit your head again and now you also went to the doctor. What'sthis mystery that you would not tell me over the phone? Well, wethought for a long time it was a hernia because I have unusually large,protruding bulge out of my stomach. But in a way it's kind of abummer. It's not a hernia because it's actually a part of just being fat, but also the I have this written down here just in case you wereto ask me about it. It's it's technically a diet dieticist reckte, andit's most commonly found in pregnant women. MESSOS. Two out of three pregnantwomen at haven't had multiple children do get this syndrome that I have my youknow what, Dave, you might be able to go see Annie at thepost part of them and perinatal claim. I might be all the west pain. Will See if the insurance will cover it. Yeah, yeah, soI have that. So now I've I'm now starting to do yoga exercises totry to bring that to under control.

It's a widening of the stomach muscleswhere your intestines actually protrude through, your intestines popping out. So, yeah, the bulge in my stomach is is actually intestines. So have you seenlike a you know, how like you pregnant? You see like a littlefoot coming out, like or a hand? Or if I hadn't moving, doyou see like a lucky charm pushing out through? Yeah, if I, yeah, if I, if right, if I, you could see theformation of a child if there was one in there. It's that wideso that at least that was diagnosed. So there's no surgery involved. Itjust so what did Kelly say about that? When you find out the diagnosis?Well, I just I think it's basically just take care of it.It doesn't really matter tech medically what it is. It's just as a spouseyou don't want the other half having that protrusion, especially when it's intestines.But yeah, so that's we talked that. But the one thing that was interesting, I was telling Kelly about it. We were actually kind of shocked atthis because it our confidence wavered in the medical facility we're in when they'regoing through the the questions of you know, how do you have? High BloodPressure? Do you have? And that's a whole nother story and I'mactually almost in like hypermode blood pressure wise, but I think we'll build knock thatdown. It was one hundred and fifty five over one hundred. Ohmy God, Rush. They almost called like the EMT's and how much salthave you been consuming? That's what she asked that. She didn't. Shewas like, were you just like in a tornado or something? What happenedto you? So that's all. That's another thing. But when they're goingthrough the questions, they said, you know, going very you know variousailments you can have in the if this is a physician's assistant, and shedoes. Have you ever had a hysterectomy? And I thought it's it was kindof like a preview for my later diagnosis of having a food of pregnancyissues with my stomach. But you know, you don't want to be a smartass to the medical care personnel. It's sort of like being like oneto like a barber. They can really mess you up right and wanted toor a waiter right now. You just rather just so I did. Youknow, I wanted to say now, you still have my uterus intact.You know, right, right, I said. I just said no,I said I I think maybe what we're talking about is I did have aappen deck to me and yeah, just kept going on a list. SoI just thought I was so she got hid direct to me and happened deckto me. Wrong, I guess, but it just even asked me abouta history act. To me, that would that could caused a little bitof a Red Flag. Going to she paying attention at all who's sitting infront of her? Maybe not. Yeah, we're that. Did she that mightthat might have spurned on my higher blood pressure, because I started tothink, what's going on? What's she just asked me if I had auterus. Yeah, yeah, so what? Yeah, and so the answers.No, Todam. Yeah, no uters for day. No, superhigh blood pressure and also a diact assist...

...rectie. So what do you thinkyour blood pressure was when you hit your head? If I bet, itwas like probably like to forty over one hundred and sixty. When I didthat, it still might have been high from that, even though it waslike four days. You have a watch or anything that monitors it? Idon't why do, but I we don't know how to recharge it. Soit's been sitting idle. What I thought like when you ride the bike atthe gym, you could check it. You can, but what's to getup to there? You know you can check, you can check the beatsper minute. You can't check the blooph you don't. I wouldn't want thepeople say, what are your beasts per minute? It up to we.I don't check them. I just it's like you gotta See, this isbaby steps here. Let me get through the yoga exercises and try to pullmy testines back into my core. Well, let me ask you this then.So if you wonder what your blood pressure would be if you would havewent to the Michigan Penn State game and tailgated all day then went to thegame with a hundred and some thousand screaming fans and white what do you thinkyour blood pressure to have been when, when, at the end of thegame, Penn State pulls it out? I saw a little bit. Wewere with our good friends having dinner and some drinks and that was an interestinggame to watch and it got a little tight at the end. We havesomeone in studio who was there and it could maybe all right, ell's better. What the atmosphere so bl Cam. What was your blood pressure during thatgame? PREGAME, after all the tailgating and activities, it was kind oflow, but then once we got the game on TV, it was itwas pretty crazy throughout. ended up pulling out a win at the very end, twenty eight to twenty one, but it was close. I mean wewere at this bar, bartenders are up on the bar, there were alumnidancing everywhere. It was pretty crazy environment. Did you go to Game Day beforehand. I went past it but they'd already mostly packed it up by thetime I was there. You didn't get up early enough as that I didn'tsee your Buddy Kirk. Yeah, I wasn't up early enough. The lastnight took a toll on me. You had a you had a strong weekendthen. I know you were. You were liking all my tweets that Iwas putting up at hours. You did. Lays are, yes, some amazingtweets. He put a great one up about Foy A, put oneup about nick but Adio from fanduel. He put one up because birthday wasrecently, Dick, because birthday. Also retweeted all three of our female gueststhat we've had on that were so powerful and you know, with Leslie vissher and Sally Jenkins and Christine Brennan. He retweeted at again and then,just you know, and then Terry retweet them all and then I retweet themall and we're just getting the word out about what we're doing and he'll soonhave an intern under we'll see, we see, we'll see. I'd begreat. We know. Yeah, Roun talks for mini Cam yeah, that'sright. No, Oh, I mean many yea quarter with camp quarner ina mini camp super eight. That's what...

...we're going to get to, SuperEight. But yeah, so that's all happened to you all. You hadyou also had homecoming. Right, there's the other's homecoming celebration. I sawthose pictures. Girls Look really pretty. Oh, thank you for saying that. Yeah, that was that's a whole deal in itself. All that.Everyone goes up to the field club and takes us as that, but atwhich you are a member of. Yeah, you're all aware of the beautiful wherewe did all of our homecomings as well. Yes, that's a kindof a go to for that. That's abserves it well. Yeah, youchanging and stuff in the back. So there was all that photo shoot.Just returned one of the dresses. We bought multiple dresses because they have tobe sure of the yeah, each she's perfect. So I've just returned thelast one this morning on my way too. You know, see, that makesme think about when I went to like homecomings. I look back atmy outfits and I'm like, why in the world when my mom? Letme get that. Yeah, there's there's some crazy ones. If you flipthrough the yearbooks. But we're also like shopping in Fort City at the locallike wherever you can get. So I think we drove to Butler actually onetime and there wasn't nough fit. You know, the luxury of online likethis. Oh yeah, online, like you can go click, click,click, bye, bye, bye. Yeah, and then they even havesites where you can go get expensive dresses but rent them. Yeah, Idon't have to buy him, you can just rent them, which is great. Yeah, yeah, I know, I there's nothing. Then one anddone and hanging in the closet for another four years and never warned. Yeah, no, I remember. I had my last homecoming. The reason Iremember it is because our homecoming King Brian M wally. He his date was, as the listeners my note, Alex Flanagan of NBC sports and NFL downsideline reporter. So they were king and Queen to Brian broke his collar bounderin the football game of the dance was that night and so then I waspulled into action to be her date. So in the yearbooks it looks likeouts landing in and I are a couple. There you go, Dave. Wewere not. We weren't just to save house. Flanagan, you ready. You were the tarnished reputation. She wasn't. I was. You were. You were those the relief? Yeah, yeah, you were per se nicand so yeah, so it looks good in the yearbook but it's notreally true if you read the five prints. Okay, now, you were.You visited a doctor also, I believe, the chiropractor. Yes,I've been trying to get my body back in line because all the limping hasbeen killing me and my back is completely all twisted up. So I've beengoing to see Dr Cbacker on Freeport Road there and Fox Chapel and he's beenthrowing me around the table pretty good and it's been working its feel. Ifeel bad. I'm getting there. I'm not perfect yet, but I'm gettingback to where now hopefully I can put off surgery a little longer on myknee and start working out a little bit harder. Yeah, I always I'venever been to a chiropractor, but our neighbor John Tramon Tina, Dr JohnShamantina. He's now an executive in another field, but he was a chiropractorfor a time. He would always try to like crack my neck and stuff. They all. I always got real nervous with that. Yeah, no, I've done it so many times, but I really like Dr Sebacher.He he liked loosens it up, gets...

...you ready. It's not like alike you know, like a I've been to guys where they just grab itand twist it and then all of a sudden you're like, oh, Idon't like that. Does it feels weird? Yeah, yeah, I haven't hadto experience with them. So that's the one time I had. Thatexperience was we were at a bar and he and I was complaining of thatneck pain and he goes come over here and he like took me like nearthe bathroom and he just surprised attack me and I yelled out. I meanit was like it was not what it what kind of yell? What youmean? Well, the PERVERSI. People are like what are those guys doingthe bathroom? So that was alarming to begin with. But but yeah,no, I just got Nah, like it was like a stop and thenit was crack. And then maybe that's why the doctor thought you had ahistory. Ask May I might pick to me that maybe it was what causedmy dialysis recte. Thanks. That trauma and that trauma right there, andimagine my blow pressure at that point too. Oh, yeah, it's right throughthe roof. Yeah, definitely through the roof. Yeah. So Iwent and saw him and then Gabe head parents weekend. So Annie drove outa day earlier than I did and then I drove out on Saturday, justlike I say, with the dogs, a day longer. And then wehad parents weekend at Gabes House. It wasn't supposed to be at Gabes Housewith his three roommates, but it wasn't. It was that their friends. They'regirlfriends, not like girlfriends, girlfriends, but they're friends that are girls.They have a house with eight girls living in it. It's brand new. It's huge. So that's where the parents weekend was. So all theirfriends, a lot. Most of them are from New York. Summer fromDelaware, but the New York accents were heavy and thick. Yeah, andGabes mom was had a few drinks and was dancing on a dance floor withall the college girls and showed her time and then she's walked out. Walkwe want in Cornhole. We were playing some good games and then at theend of the night when we left, she finally started limping and said,I don't know what I did to my knee. I said, well,maybe you shouldn't dance like you were back in college again, and so shestruggle with her need for a couple days but now went back to work.But it was a lot of fun. Got To meet Gabes, college roommatesin their families, which was really nice. Everyone get a long wall. Yeah, they all were pretty sad that the Yankees got dusted. But yeah, you know, it's hard to feel any sadness. Yeah, I don'treally feel I didn't show any. Yeah, a roll, I said to thatwe're pirate fans, are so likable. Yeah, it's like, yeah,well, you can't say anything to us, anything to us at all. Yeah, about sadness, about the pains wall right. So we didthat, drove back, got to spend a night with Abbey and then broughther crazy Doug Lucy back to her house. She'll be coming home this weekend,so we're excited about that to see her again. How's cocoa recovering?Coco is doing well. She's on some medication for soreness. Her and Rupergot some crazy virus were. They haven't had the best suggestion digestion and beencleaning up some messes lately. But yeah,...

...they're doing a little bit better.And then, you know, just typical if you have anybody out therehas dogs, all the stuff you go through with dogs. There's good days, bad days and terrible days. And you have always said multiple dogs.We've always had multiple. Now I have three at the house and I hatewhen it rains. Yeah. Well, yes, I take time to likewipe them down when they come in and so that they're not make bringing afull mess into the house and it's eat lot easier to throw a towel anda Washer. Yeah, but really, nobody else in my family sees itthat way. Yeah. So then I have footprints all over the House andwet and and you can be frustrated. Yeah, it's very fresh. Youknowell, you don't know dogs are yeah, no, I know. And thenalso the grass now, at this time of year, isn't growing anymoreand you know Wilbur are larger. One scratches a long Bert's brother, yeah, Rupert's brother, and so heap. You know, it's pure mud andthere's no grass to wipe the feet. So from here until about May.It's going to be I think. I think Annie said Alia video last nightwatching those of them howling. When I puppies. We're trying to identify whichone was which. Yeah, and he knows. I don't remember. Butyeah, they were really cute. Yeah, that was some good stuff on there. Wilbs and Rupert and dozer and now I can't remember. It waschunk of beef. Yeah, I can't remember their names. When we theywere puppies, we had all kind of crazy names for him. Well,was wilber was infant, infant. Yeah, you know, kind of names forhim. But that was crazy having puppies. That was a whole experience. It would take up a long podcast. If you ever want to do it, let me know and I'll explain how it works. Yeah, Dave, that could come on, our our friend Dave. Yeah, Dr Sheer, he could come on and tell us some pretty soon. Well, adoctor right in her midst of our family, because Abbey is getting her whitecoat onNovember, one from University of Pennsylvania Veterinarian School. Must be very proudday. And yes, yes, her and as a father. Yeah,she texted this morning and said she had a big final yesterday for one ofher classes and said that she missed an a by one one point. Yeah, and she was upset and I'm like, okay, does it even matter now? You're already almost you're at the finish yeah, you're at the finishline. You're going to get a degree. But you know, she really workshard to get really good. Great. So well, house calls maybe inthe future. So we don't write right, she'll just be running aroundall of our friends. Yeah, I'm doing all their words doing. She'llhave I still don't think she'll be able to cut wilbur's nails. Oh sonow he's to be completely put down for that? Yeah, yeah, that'sthat's my dogs are. I'm lucky they don't have a problem with it,but I know will and well were their brother. Yeah, those are isnot. He hates it. He won't allow it either. No, butit turns like a nail trim that they...

...if you went to like Pecco,it might be like thirty or something like that to a three hundred dollar bill, because he has to be sedated right in order for them to do it.
