Well at least at least have it available you have to eyes have it available before we get to a sports a nine hey if she always talked about I did ask you about Amanda Borden Colin. I wanted to ask you what your views on a Paul may have afford yeah and and microbe colonies red for the mixed martial bail out five Miata mid very brave men afford to take charge so. No that's Alan I was gonna as your off. Some. Yesterday when we were talking about my billboard which of course we would be if the talk of the town the daily mantra in built boiler. Did that several. The billboards all around town yeah could you imagine that count putting your email address you're gonna everyone and maybe no one negative billboard sanctions so. I'm my hope is is that this is going to this is not so far. The the idea that may be we issued a billboard but for the station but Doug Derosa. So I have the Nokia to billboard's really have no billboards. Both are quarterback. I don't think that's show that you have to build or other event you do have to billboards attitude I have got. Five not a the boast foggy from McCain yeah Basel where drugs are discounting their right. Think there font. Now mind you they're rotating which a little irritating that the digital cable digital the rotating and no valid code and have seen would have liked to would have billboards that not all worse than that. Even the daily meant intramural or amateur every fifth thing right at thing and then every. Both it'll be me yep but then let me go to Sanford. And they'll be Jennifer bit socially just I wanna have billboard really deadly one but yet it's one yet are you here's the thing that billboard to billboard says come home. Needing come home the day we grow local journalism come home to the folks that you've read for all these yours come home yeah home sort of says. When you saw you thought is like a milk box things like come home. Right leg missing you made some reference to it reminded you of one York. I'm not losses out this is a and spill the beans from my guess here is my wife when your wife leaves the house saying she will leave forever it's the kind of billboard that you would put up. It says come home. And that of course prompted me to ask. Your wife leaves the house saying that she's. Never gonna come back so we got a couple fights and our time we've been together for like ten years altogether and so we've had our we've had our remnants never gotten violent. Are parable of the bat I does that have to say that I would I know managers listen well I would they've always. It's never got to the bottom moment think it was. It was and it would have gotten vile but I think things have been said in and so she's left the house saying I'm never coming back there she sees left the house and senate benefit have you. Who leaves the house typical. I mean I guess what whit pick one would say is the man to leave the house who typically in York particularly if you have a fractious. Purely verbal Debbie now this her practice who's the one to stop out of the house get McCarron don't tell and out of the draft. Her an out or use the bomb Cassie that may have you ever left the house. Yeah I am I leave the house ago I wrote an aspect of now. She's the one who leaves the house. And I know is that a modestly on the counties that don't try that crap and what's the longest that she's ever been gone when she leaves the house 45 minutes as she tries delight. We shall do as it was done the past. It's like drive around the neighborhood might try to make you feel like you know.

Alamo eyes but almost all the visually summit know I was in my sister's house which is the worst thing ever if you're up by. With your wife he goes they're damn sister does a bad 'cause you don't mean what they do what do what do they do they get the day's talk Tara how bad you dad and and an aid gets annoying because they tag team up on me when they are come in town and it's fun at first but it inevitably there's got to be something that they don't I think typically. May ruin my day in this can.

And useless in the minivan outside I went to see the usual suspects. OK is that against the rocket right I was mad and I would leave your limited Miami that at the time it was what. The other rocket the usual suspects are out on the one that has Kevin Spacey I don't know what to do other cell that is yeah yes there are let's face it this was this was that we knew I was there with judge did make a good joke that. Was that a good joke it was considered why was that a good joke and an understanding each episode you know so it's okay because I you have to. Is that over the this this means over my head down to normal so. So thanks for the good jokes are we appreciate it humor interjected into this radio program. They would see the usual suspects I just want stuff and out of the house. And I don't think she got stomped on us and ultimately be both stopped forever threat but but. That's I don't know how much of that is the thing and a relationship. Yeah they got a split roughly down out of the house. I'd would demand late the album I'm not gonna name any names OK but I had but I do have a friend who would Nate when he and his his wife into an argument yeah. He always has asleep in a different room. He how he gets the worst were. He gets the cap. After everything that's BS boy you keep going back to discussion point a to about Tyler who's live and how does that is saying now you're the same exact event added it's crap.

Now normally should just sucks it up and sleeps next for you must be rough yeah. That must be returns are back exactly and they're bound by time the morning rolls around there it is all good scared that's good I'm glad that you're okay. A couple things that was said yesterday anyone anymore to the David moos idea on David Moore a wide. A valiant if Osama I mean I don't blame David Moore on here. I don't even if he what did you like the rumor out there is that he was demoted to third. And I would support him leaving even if he had not been demoted authority to be just lost the job. It was Mia would lead to. What reason why I have to believe I'm ever gonna play why don't why have to bank on bush you the last. F out of left before the competition even started he would have absolutely love that other William integrated and another unit that. You may not the house but you silly little of the universe and message Australia. About bill disrespect that I have to bring in somebody else I don't know in this program for two years and yet I'm so little left to suit his pretty wife came here. Course I would have. You know drowned out a drop down elevenths I sort of assume yes I would left there but that the president that's that's where I'm out what I even if he even if David more just lost the job was gonna be back out. There's I mean everybody wants to play in the N everybody wants to make a career everybody wants to make it AAF Butler so he's not gonna do that on the bed loving gimme a. Small amount of her small other took a exempt from the real world the grip. When I came to the commercial too many years ago there work three. People who want a good job of laying in Al Bunning and had a job yet and they were three columns being groomed. Ron Higgins led the coursing and David Williams and I around. Very shortly after guess what happens accordingly the course and links there because he's a Calkins gonna get a towns we got the same lot eligibility left wanna stand him go to Cincinnati exactly very shortly after guess what I thought brought negatively Ron reagans lived this is part of it really comes out to simulate for the calmest and negative blogs and speak for about your threat of the and we became good friends in whose name became about you begin my boss he decided to jump Olbermann like that that actually is an extra minute than other but it's typical nowadays why am I gonna sit here and wait don't get Merck and company's if two people loved ones vying to be to see no one gets picked to be the CEO the other ones that'll let you know they insist back to CEO you chose someone else I respect your decision on. Mine on a bird with a double. Bart I'm gonna go talk to my sister and your two streets are attacked my sister's back like that got so that evidence and other news was. And I yeah yes and they aren't yesterday penny said. Tournament or bust yes I youth tournament or bust because I had this little optimism floated around including you're saying. The worst they could be as tenants very two start there schedule can go through this very briefly whatever area you're major show man Tennessee tech. Lost at the W a look at Alice. Because of the loss but I mean whatever it's a loss aren't five you have what one and one half or one and one you've got to attend this kind of did win. As a W old bugs are nest empathetic. Oklahoma State. You know when a kid you acknowledges 5050 of course Canada won't be favorite photo call and what OK so they get that when the Madrid Villanova. Offs. Okay they put another wanted to delay. Another one is probably going to be some. Florida State. Could be for a stale as you were you may be likely going to be those who it is we think they are eleven B ports that are you may be in which case on any given the win over either one of those from. OK but but both of you out the bulls in the Florida State its example and a local cinema stated example there's there. Conflicts are yeah yeah but I think they're given their better than what you've given them both conflicts yes I am I gonna I've ever gets in headlines back. Given that one undercut by South Dakota State and get analysis home you're being we have now Tennessee loss. OK so you you've given them three losses to Tennessee to Villanova. And to LSU. And then the two that were. Oklahoma State. And Florida State David's personality but protects tech America's there'd be a good I take Texas Tech is up to go to state that's good they are just they're practically everybody from dividends as they're not losing the south of Tehran. A better today happen I had to say those that they lost you'll be last year set to go to state and Texas Tech is a neutral. Against yeah and I'm now you gave so would you say you can't Symbian worse than ten and three you know I can see them out and I wish I would that's three coin flip games. I also wish I wish I would have. What you're so they can't win I don't know a dozen of the candidates and I'm just saying I'm guessing that's not the worst they could be. Yes I sound publisher would have worded it differently I should just that I am asking them to be temporary I can see them being worse incident I could see them being knighted for. Adding even worse than that I'd be a little disappointed I think the bigger dream I think they're at it like it chairman about the you'd never your purse or coach say that remains. All the level of the level of just. He didn't even care is valued at Sam he does not kick he does not give a damn could tell he says we're gonna high silent recruits. He says are gonna have done and this is sort of on a national championship all three of those things. Some things that you do not typically here for I will deliver and what we were used here in the last two years it's ten years. Is what used to be. Out more about our you have to believe that I just. Ridiculous. Still absolutely. Ridiculous like that I did get. The idea that he had five people on the Internet who worked clamoring for his return is amazing to me that boggles my mind. There are even bought it just shows the people rally around who have addressed some people who rally around whoever my approach. It will whoever's like at a target like they're angry at the same people who were rallying for tubby I sort of got the same people rallying yesterday for David Moore. Want kind of wheel you around entered I'm not rallied that they had my oriental white gonna kill I think there were more people. Blasting David Moore for being acquitted then. Well it's stupid if it was your kid what would you say. And that's stupid as well I think if your kid it's they have little while our I don't wanna watch is on the bench and watch you play summer caregiver dropped down a level. You know. Right now you have to come to go to tournament. Memphis Tigers. And you think. You think that Paris is gonna be oss ranked yet you think that Alex Lomax is gonna be awesome that's where you have to do you think they're gonna be awesome right out of the gates. A mess I don't I'm mats and gonna be like. The you know undefeated or anything like that but I do come really really returned the favor our loves best parts of that mediocre team last year and they add to it. A top 26 recruiting class I think those two things plus the fact that they see is not a great league this year. I think that's shapes up and said she won't for a tournament run absolutely. That they missed the turn at bat there on the bubble they miss a turn and like I'm not gonna. And I'm not going to be like going to be hurt my on the campaign.

I'll see you snooze you cookies so far. Missy. It's not my tandem on deadline comes and the and your man the design. Dan Elliott. I'm well dictator. I guess the NBA is formally now I appreciated normally we get your break normally you take a break and I creates it is now the proverbial 24 hour a day twelve month. Sport so here we go all the things that got a lot of attention I recently because of the story. Jack McMullen but honestly you'd written about this. Earlier. And it is in the case Kevin Love and it's the mental health. NBA players and that. That they're willing to talk about it but they seem to be talking about it and that's something they should be talking about your thoughts. Yeah I mean its lead to huge it's huge topic and there's a lot of the a lot of elements that go into so I think it's it's kind of appropriately. Again you know it can work on getting their arms around at the very big weight jacket a mom got a huge five part story this week out because. There are many many facets talking to many players many of whom had not. Publicly disclose some of the things that they're that they discussed in the end in the story so I think it. I really worthwhile read for you have irked at the state people to follow. And there are people like you know like Kevin Love DeMar DeRozan who had previously disclosed. There individual issues that you are going to greater detail on it stuff like that. I think it it's good it's. Broadly. Great that this is being discussed more openly a bit more players feel comfortable. Opening up about it a technology that they are. You know personally affected and they'd need to know leading wide ranging effect of some of these issues whether depression or anxiety or. Test of compulsive disorder or addiction you know we all these days the whole white speed does. You know that damaging behaviors and need a mental issue that sort of fall under that adding that mental health. Talking about it a great first step absolutely you don't read OTT stigma typing it legitimizing defeat the sense that if you yourself had to had to. Experience and these things whether or use. Pretty and so it or talked about as anybody you're not like you know you are now he's not alone by the hole like a lot of people you watch on TV dvd would it ever volatility certain things are dealing with them I think that if they. Very good seeing broadly for people that. Maybe lower the bar for people to be able to talk about it and aero wise if they're going through it. I think what comes next. For the NBA ought to be very interest then. Because you know part of one of the things there's sort of tucked pins says it did Jackie longest series days. But at this becomes they create bigger issue a bigger topic of discussion in the league. Yes some owners once you have more visibility into what their players' mental health issues are like may he'll be more. They are quick medical records. On what players have been no discussed with Derrick has served in Medicaid for things like that. And that it separately it also tucked in is that the majority of players the Jackie says she spoke to. Has said they got they believed it needs to complete confidentiality on this issue it echoes. Does that in the dead Michelle Roberts the players association has has noted before. This is the big thing but can come right you know you know it's one thing to say. You know we get full players full medical report before we decide if we're gonna tied to long term contract when we're talking about light. Well we peaked at a bad knee injury that we data we heard rumblings about. This is a very different sort of new frontier in terms of that kind of openness and discussions so. Yet the union can need to be involved in that individual players to get and he says you know volatility really devastate on that. And we're told he can ownership goes on that ought to be really interesting and I mean the biggest thing that I've written about this you know and four months ago I talked to Roy white. About. His experience with. He's sort of that really at the forefront of a lot of these discussions and full years ago. Drafted by these other Houston Rockets generalized anxiety disorder diagnosed that people knew that with him coming out of Iowa State. And things fell apart pretty dramatically for him only run the place three NBA games never for the rockets. You are now playing over in Canada and I talk to and that's about what happened there and he got from his side of the story a lot of it is. You know DC bill that the players won now what they have put in place. In terms of plans and the idea that they need to be safe formalized process for dealing with these things if you wanna have that information about my my mental health stated. That he to have serious certain security that you decided it. All that stuff he was talking about that and he did we got drummed out of the league. All over at peace feed itself. I a lot of these issues have been around for awhile but he would carry the only guy talking about the for a long time and now. If you got a drumbeat from a lot of other players I think where it goes next but he really really interest and. Good things about all that one as I do think it's still. Hard for. Us people who live in a regular home mortgages and and not vast amounts for whatever reason we can't get our minds around the fact that. Rich successful people. Might also have. I'm medals struggles but of course absolutely an element of course they do. Whether it's Robin Williams or Kevin Love or the idea that because you've cashed in your pocket. You are immune to this is silly particularly when much of it is. A physiology physiological not and anything else. The rest the other thing that you bring up is really fascinating because as a team. I can know if you were valve in your heart is not working appropriately I can put you through every test to make sure that it is working. Appropriately. And yet and I know everything in the NFL you strip down to your underwear and I get to you know. But I but it's a totally different deal. If I wanna know if your Bible. For example that is a totally different deal you would think it most workplaces. Where there addiction issues where the metal hill. People do is set up its most workplaces there there's a long line they set up these anonymous. Called this number to get help we acknowledge that is not something we should necessarily. Know about but it is very tricky and as you point out and it in an industry where they do know everything about your health. Except this time and this is different. I guess you don't. It ended up at its huge and it it say it they really big part of you know what a player you know of what goes into making a player you know undecided that I don't want things are discussed in these god these stories is. You know whether or not. Teams that fairly is if a player it diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder ADHD. And whether he would even want that guy are be medicated because. It might you know make him less. He's active are energetic. Ai in play or whether a player frankly would want to be medicated for that because that might feel like they're sort of taking that job and there's no I think. What makes it very difficult it. You want a uniform do what you want this to be able to be dealt with it a uniform way where everyone's sort of understand the degree on the of the rules the lay of the land. You're also dealing with a much more individualized. It's you know gets set of issues and potential diagnosis than any other way that things manifest and players' lives been. We know what different priorities are so I needed because. I think. And we are scratching the surface that you know tell a media covering the we get the league itself the eight Shiite give them. You know we've we've sensitivity as regular an awful lot below the circuit that we haven't seen yet. Needed the water level is receding a little bit we're seeing more and more but. Do waive this sort of manifested then do it illegally make decisions is gonna be really interesting to see because I think he's going to be a lot out. Some people do your teams in the league to have that out a certain amount of power in the discussion via negotiation because they're the ones that write the checks. We just. Probably have to eat something on that for players to feel comfortable with it and we know the negotiations on that why they are gonna just to see how contention that it we've seen a lot of you know. Gestures towards solidarity are you now you know united front from the audience overlap regime in the NBA in the show Robertson says if she did over the players' association. I wonder if that would sort of remain in the good state there. I carried the day or you know if you're talking really I don't think I need to know exactly what's inside every everyone I players' heads if that winds up being a really big battleground there. Talking to Dan DeVine from Yahoo! Sports on Twitter at your command and I'm couple other. Things real quick since we last spoke Melo has gone to Houston you have written about it. What do you think about the fit. I think. The other I don't necessarily believe that he's totally cook I think you know I think he's. He very there'd be a world in which. Playing alongside. James Harden and and Chris Paul who are you know play makers first. And then scored second Jenny it's weird to say even that Harden has been such. Prolific scorer but he can keep the people that are yet to no way to the weighted you do did you sort of turned over to him at the point guard Mike and Tony got that. And dilute those guys being able to finish so I cannot I think. Could it resulted in a better situation for Carmelo that he had alongside Russell Westbrook can and Paul George last season but. I remain real skeptical that. At Carmel that you can equal coming off the bench or in real skeptical of Carmel edited in the cool. Didn't 89 shots again and pretty much only also catch and shoot opportunities sound that you know we don't know even a fairly for sure how effective he's going to be and that kind of role considering. He knows all of his you know shooting numbers and everything else really tracked down last year when he was plugged into that role. And then gets before he got let the defensive side of the also I'm skeptical about the fit and skeptical that it really get used in meaningfully closer to. Knocking off the warriors. But I think. I I didn't go I know a lot of sort of Smart basketball mind there that you know the might be in better position figured out but. I don't know the Carmelo if he's the kind of player put you over the top anymore even though he might still be a valuable player for that over the course of the regular students. And then finally CJ McCollum is sort of continue to make news as the guy who hates dream and these are. I'll be honest I'm kind of with CJ McCollum on this but it doesn't normal lot of it does not earn him a lot of a positive I'm press offense eject. I think if he had just think things like note she's in the Colin has been very sort of immediate forward person to mediate yesterday journalism school and it's almost like he's already on inside the NBA already up.
