You wanna see him go number 13 one of those picks to the browsing the matter where egos since you won't be playing for your team. Barbara an opponent. Who is hurting you more particular the early on but it. Put those. Is there an athlete not doing it clearly not because you're not rooting for Jacksonville and Paul Posluszny biz they've do you think there could be an athlete. For Penn Stater elsewhere they can make you change allegiances like. I love that guy so much that I'm gonna follow him instead of be a bears are Kerr are cubs fans. Sorry my boat but opener at this question nevermind let's move on. But a tired how do you harm how do you feel this is question there how do you feel about athletes. Who have recently come out of talked about their struggles with mental health this is something that I I struggle with. So what do you think about these athletes doing that. You know all sport I will be the proclaimed that on burial. A about it. Obama he beat airy open minded people older. It should be at my pocket Carter let people know that they are going to tell it is the Joker health. They guy I completely agree and I'm glad that people. In the public guy have begun to discuss this is what we talked into. It. I told you exactly the time I was gonna call you didn't need to be doing anything else. Bill.

Barry are at my fourth question. A minute I'm gonna turn it to around to me what was your first impression of me. The you'd probably aroused when I began to cover the thunder we've we've built some sort of a relationship I don't know if they got off to a great start maybe it did.

If there doesn't want it and you know in the world the there will let you that they never do that what venue that. Why does my backyard count. That does not count that would be cool or not I'm IS I've always said if I won the lottery I would. First of all give a lot of money the Cleveland Indians so they could. And by free agents and also a private Eagles cops about now they might not do that once they've really doesn't matter that.
