Yeah. Oh welcome back is that the cubs a lot of I would still FC he's the boss. You know it's. Yeah. So little party going on the cubs locker room last night in. A hard being. Theo Epstein being interviewed by a well you know may be able to drug. Bill Maher last night and has pulled the drug legal is lost yet you can see that their bull bull solves a class when they're doing this interview that despray in the champagne may be downing some some beer and she several times you see them. Could get together drinking it as the interviews going on is only a minute tent that. And their ball downing champion Austin. They. Like I can't get Steve Bachmann that I had this morning. I know I mean I'm sure media are trying to interview the guy. I mean did woody. Would they offered a hasty come back to Chicago would he want even come back to Chicago there was still a cult stand after what happened to him at Wrigley and is why we're literally protection not known is Steve Hartman anymore than Florida or some like that the last time his name came up in the news I I was just thinking. Couple tweets today about apartment like. I imagine he's not a cubs fan I would would. Would he have anyway happened in Chicago wouldn't it would be I thought about that like would you just not root them anymore because of what everybody what a pretty empty. It could mean I'm I'm sure was and everybody but that's how it gets portrayed it will certainly make you very bitter human being. It could and I was wondering like you know plot becomes active to Fenway it's a different thing it's a player not a fan. Fokker comes back to Fenway they won the World Series and everybody all's forgiven blab blab lab with someone actually offer. Steve Hartman please come back to Chicago we can all forgive apologized not for gift of ties to the guy. They should apologize to home before they win the World Series this culture as too yeah. Five years ago ten years ago and that thirty for thirty was one of most powerful ones so disturbing there really was. And I try I thought I mean. I I would assume like you went into what he wouldn't go back I would I firing him are probably just never go back. And not even take the phone call from the cubs but I think somebody would make the offer is about for a little bit not last night but this morning like. Is he happy. Did you care did you watch the game this is the feeling of solved if anything I don't know its weird that I talk about what year was that that that that happened 2003. That was the of the Marlon Marlon going to be the Yankees him Josh Beckett. Had to go three ring. Marlins have two World Series right thirteen thirteen years ago yes Marlins beat the Indians in the Marlins beat the Yankees. So was that your the other Marlins are five years of this certainly wasn't up Jose Mesa is five or six years apart in that they could they won in 97. So yeah probably around 030203. Angels one and I think one year anyway OK how Jeremy and a Derek wanna get some John Clayton sound. And taco football is Howard and talk about the cubbies have been talking about the next team that maybe the nation will pull for Nomar cubs drought no Red Sox drought. Who is the team that people would want to see win a championship the big national championships story would be. It calls about the lions we talked about a whole bunch of different teams this morning they don't real factor to judgment cling to a moment he talked about the Seahawks yesterday was show opened Opel. And give a year tax to the day at a quick baseball note on the ratings cut Texan it's on the cubs on the bit it's on baseball on how people feel today they're two ways to look at today. And that no number one is. What it cubs give you hope man everybody eventually has their time in the sun Adam chapter tweeted out for people tweeting the Theo Epstein the bills of the sabres and higher if you have seen first it was out of chef for the that's where it started yeah he said the browns of the bill should hire Theo Epstein spoiler alert the browns kinda did. Right they hired based Paul deeper depth yet our entire baseball guys they're you know. Smart guys in so the browns can already did today. And then some and Edmonton's basically asked if Peter cheer rally could be like Theo Epstein. I'm gonna vote no well he might ways economy David yeah of course. You guitar players your genius to works. Op so there's that everybody gets their day in the sun you know what this gives me hope the cubs had a 108 year drought well. Here's another Texan looks at a different way. I love watching all the videos of all people celebrating the cubs win but. It scares me to death but that's going to be meet. With a buffalo championship and I'm twenty now. It's a good point he's someone is like 85 celebrating the liked that guy who at one point he was twenties. And wanting them to win. Anyway an all time greats are going to be either would you come to my grave sites. All right and plays a championship buffalo batter right headstone to play if we could treat death a little bit lightly for a moment that story about the got a ghost with his father's grave while what are my story meanwhile his dad. Speaking from the apps like that. Great there you know let you know like. No I don't well. I didn't I waited the whole time they didn't get it done and now I mean I don't think about it from the young kids perspective. I I mean I I I watched your and like I got choked up when that you know much other stuff last night and in the parting this morning but I think about it from now I'm 54. So. I'm not going any time so at least I don't hope I'm going to have to. But I think about it from the standpoint of someone like my. Each who's had who's been in it has been invested for 3040 years and has you know or be open to bills fan since. Post AFL championship pledges they said 1970 but the sabres fans and they were born and you evening you've seen nothing. You've seen six combined losses in the championship round they lost I just I think about it from that like some and in my age group not necessarily my son is twenty. I don't really think about. Well shot and still got another you know 5060 years Zach going to be him but it he's gonna be on TV the old guy. With the McCain and all look at that guy must be really enjoying this buffalo championship I think about it from people like my standpoint who have yet to taste it at all. And are at a Mets World Series couple. My got a rangers' Stanley Cup event. I got stuck the truth is that the fact the you have stuff if you are a bit different it's if you are a fan that has one championship you are all. Old enough to appreciate that. It's one against none in a for bills and sabres fans that don't have like you have the Mets right like I had Syracuse is giants do you have out there young I cannot. I yes. Two young okay giant say you're Syracuse is right my Syracuse won as the one that I count yet the giants' winning the Super Bowl 1990 when I was a fan of the giants and very very vaguely remember that. And celebrity championship when your own life and that's not right. But you know that's one of sixteen on our seven forget it yet the knicks won two titles in seven and 73. What ever I mean I didn't know what it didn't mean anything to me I've got the Mets in 86 at the Rangers in 94 those are the Q significant championships in my life so I have that. And that's why do I think about people my age you haven't had anything. And again if you if you're. Are just a fan of the bills and sabres though it's your favorite teams. Unless you're old enough to remember 64. And 65 you don't have it. So for me Jeremy it isn't as much about the twenty year old wondering my son wondering will we see it in his lifetime he well. And one. I want the people in my age range to be able to see a bills are sabres championship I'm looking at the screen there showing. Highlights from the Red Sox World Series when they won and now the cubs. And I want people who've never had that feeling I don't know what it's like to have your team win at all. You know what it's like to have your team win at all the run to it the jabs your game itself it's awesome the parade everything. I want people who have never experienced it to experience it here there's the old lady in Chicago are still on the about the was that the LCS. I want people to experience that you have to in your lifetime you've got to experience that feeling once it's the greatest thing in the war. Well mainly it's about the community of it and that's why even help and that's an awful thing to break even though about you know Syracuse winning it for me that's great for me and for my college friends but I was here and it's not the same no I was I was not at home for either of those championships and Jena Six I was in Toledo it's not the sandy form up here as much your happy. You're not out how Ron and through the streets I didn't go to the parade in the canyon of heroes I don't know how much of a if that day ever comes I'll go to the parade because there's a parade but. Once that the night you win it yeah that's the night. After that elect Allen ever I'd go to a go to opera I am telling you that I was still ended rating but. It's very forced to me you know the breaks are always forced like oh here comes your team down on the are right. The main reason I would do it is because you know you would see everybody you know there and you get a chance to. Hog person you might see in seven years just wanna be around other write bills or say we used to sit next that guy in section 310 and I'll man look at that it's. Their kids are grown up yet he had like the community aspect of it is the really appealing part the actual parade. And it really need to happen but I would certainly ago but I. I would go I would I wanna give my thanks I mean I would go because I want you that would be my I'm probably not at the game where they went at all. So I would go to. Basically thank my team. Firms you know winning a championship and then and not even people you'd you know at the parade of would be. Strangers. Acts I would I would go there just to see people I don't know. Celebrating. You know fathers and kids or mothers and kids whatever families. Fathers and their fathers I mean it's just you know generations of bill stands are sabres fans I would go just to enjoy that. I like watching. A fan base that has gone through. A lot of years with nothing to claim in terms of a championship I like watching the fan base celebrate last cavs won the championship. I watched the post game coverage on ESPN in part. There were out live in in one of the bar districts in Cleveland fourth street I think it is our third I think that's and in. But I watched the coverage just to see the fans celebrating like the fans of Cleveland letting loose and being able to celebrate and what are what's going on Chicago and that's fabulous stuff. But I'm. I don't have your championship. She might you know Jonathan has easier North Carolina Tar Heels fans leaving he's had a champion so far in his lifetime he seemed turtles when. Couple national basketball titles it'll come I'm glad you said you're one of two fans when I see the cubs went. But I'm I'm always that guy I always think our day will come here every time I watch the Stanley Cup being raised at the end of the hockey season. I firmly believe at some point. That'll happen with buffalo and the same thing with an audio into the super ball I think about that happening with the bills so I I always believed. One of these two teams. Is going to win a championship and you know knock on wood before I die. 8030550. Join us. 88550 to 550. We get another text your vote when you want to win because I think when I went in our let's say it if you again you're not going to be told this. You're gonna live from age zero obviously 280. Poker. I'll give you a span of four championships in six years. Or whatever that's weakening a judge yeah I understand to champion just over six years when you thought all do you wanna be when they happen because there's a quite here's a tax that actually brings up. Jeremy I'm probably same ages you more resentful my sports fan crime has largely been wasted it was kid when the bills went Super Bowls and twentieth the last time their in the playoffs. Lived in Boston for a few years my late twenties early thirties we got to see firsthand what we've missed out on. Your twenties that I get it. Wouldn't probably be the best when you have kids that are also old enough to appreciate it like at you with your son there are probably in the prime. That's what I was gonna pick forty it no earlier than forty yet you wanna you wanna sell out with him you wanna give him the horrible past suffer now you want him to be older than sixty me but against six might be just as on the U mock. For him to be an adult. And you'd be adult you'd have that together if you had the match your whole life you've had the bills are life that's probably about. I have the answer okay 'cause my championships came at age 81124. And thirty to ten guy here's your answer you want the championship when. As a dad if you have a kid who's a sports fan you've reached the point we feel incredibly guilty you made your son a fan of that team. And anyone on duel with the championship. Right but it. And for me as I said I had that moment two years ago driving back from Pittsburgh when the Mets lost to the pirates and I thought I said to him Jonathan. I totally understand if you wanna stop rooting for the Mattson I don't want you to experience this for the rest of your life so when you reach that point. As a dad if you've conditioned your son your daughter you raised him as the bills fan a sabre fan a met their whatever. You get to a point. As a dad I can't I can't speak for all of you you reach a point we feel guilty. Like. Jonathan I'm so courageous bills that. Can't go to bills' playoff game is like OK last time adults middle class she was. Shill and a half your result. So I think when I want it to. Teens 20s30s. It's almost two world. I want it like forty and be under fifty and beyond. I think it means more to me it would mean more to be at that age that it would it at twenty Ford liked them gripe but it's gonna happen again. And it never happens in your forty your your fifteen is still waiting for your first championship I think I'd appreciate it as an older age but Jeremy hit it on the head. As someone who's raised a sports fan kid. It would mean so much more for me to celebrate that title with him. That that would be an amazing moment. And I hope it happens that I hope we're together for a a bills' Super Bowl win our sabers Stanley Cup victory. I would love to have that moment with him mean so much more than me haven't championship when I was in my twenties or thirties and before I got married. So in 2003 when Syracuse won the national championship I was home. In my apartment I lived in a garden level apartment on the guard in Cheektowaga there with three friends the time I think all Syracuse grad the guys and moved out here. And Syracuse wins the title and I immediately went online and bought 200 dollars won't go 200 dollars worth I mean and this is a core I I did the same thing scratchy at two Nickels. Two dollars worth of Jimmy should gear that's cool I woke up the next morning and canceled all. I can afford that kind of bullet sure but that didn't click into an all like what's the high of winning a championship like you'll. Indiscriminately just like gimme gimme gimme by sweatshirt buy this buy that and I wised how is like wiser than I. Morning I told you my story last year when the Mets I did it multiple times I did it when the Mets advanced out of the DS when they beat the Dodgers. Did you find the commitment fund McDougal the bride to go overboard and I didn't after the LCS I would never. I would never buy a shirt for anything else that assists for anything other than went in the hole I was so starved for winning I guess so giddy when they beat the Dodgers in the way that game five. Ended with. Drop that the end familiar coming on and then when they beat the cubs to the World Series I mean I just I was online within. I would say thirty minutes after the game ended and I am I am I've got the computer and I've got my phone. I'm online buying stuff for me next when he fifteen nationally champions. And I've got the phone and texting Jonathan and I'm sending him pictures of the stop saying okay which sure you want me to buy for. You want a cap to what shirt unless I am an absolute. Thomas sought when it comes to us like buying stuff if your team actually this sucker born every male I've that's me when the Rangers won the cup in 94. I was I blocked the PSI commemorative video. I got you know I got shirts I got season in review VHS tapes I got everything I am I must stop Ida. Absolutely I would be on line I Texan my body. Former intern in my music cups then. And tech Timmy said he stayed up like he's been up all night stayed up to watch the game back accident back and said. How are you not online yet find world championship gear for the Chicago Cubs that haven't gotten to yet I would have been online last night buying stuff. Now. A couple more texts Tom writes in. I'm almost 52 and Phillies he's Phillies fan the Phillies in no way was better than the Phillies and eighty I enjoyed it more with my kids absolutely. And other tax about this Larry texts and thanks for Texas for signing your tax guys elected I mean I like to give credit except the ones because idiots and call names. Larry writes and I thought about this last night in the big bills sabres and Indians fan. And last night I was crying after they lost my wife says you crying. And I said after going through four Super Bowls to Stanley cups. Well I ever get to taste that championship taste. And the Indians. I mean the bills are right the bills in super the first one are in the game and of course can win it. The 41. They have the lead and they can win it yeah. There's another category four how close did you ever come but the sabres. They've never skated a game where they can win the Stanley Cup. Correct they've never been on the ice with the ability to win the Stanley Cup event in the series and to get to that game where you win at the Indians have been in game seven. In extra innings. Twice. They have gotten out of the smallest gain you can get to witches were playing for an inning. It goes to the top tenth it's a one inning game for the title until you somebody wins and innings and the last thing we had the lead. In yet no chance to close out an extra innings game seven twice. A truck that is rough that's rough and a sure I mean luck. Super Bowl 26. It's like you didn't exist like I could there was no pain there was no suffering 25 obviously and what do you make I think as I've said many times few. 28 was in the books for sure after I thought they're winning or completely convinced they're gonna win. 27 was. Oh my god to left actually go to work to talk about this game the thing is it's a bloodletting. So it does depend on how it happens it does depend on how close you get and I think it I feel sorry for the guy who just who was at the text you build the. Larry sorry Larry more texts trust believe me Larry the day will come through and you know what I'm not kidding I truly honestly believe it'll come. And you know what it's gonna be the greatest thing that ever happened are you outside of having a cable are you gonna make your son promised to listen the game on the radio from your grave. It's are you gonna tell on the next day. Seriously thanks for greater that would not yet when you think about it it's kind of raw deal like listen to the radio at my grave site I would not make him do that K you know what. Just visit me at some you can tell it as long as they're streaming and on your phone or bring your own and a lot to gather and make him dip don't listen to the grave site. But as soon as he gave is W goal one mind you buy a shirt and you bring the shirt to her right side I don't add styles. Another text my dad is 66. I wanna build Super Bowl win in his lifetime. I watched the game with him to on the person wannabe with my wife and 29 yes. I I would yeah. Yeah I I don't wanna talk about it too emotional but when the Mets are winning last year I thought my dad. A lot yeah it. So that that would be I would love to have that moment where Jonathan and I are watching the bills' Super Bowl and win and we have that that embrace. That celebratory moment that feeling together. Be fined yeah. And for me but rooting for the bills and sabres so much. You know I'm not from here so basically every single person that I've met since I've moved to buffalo every single person. It's it's hard to say like. If this the the bills won the Super Bowl I'm sure over the course of the next week I would think of almost every single person I can remember remember ever meeting them and how. Mean my job's about talk about the bill so that probably heard me. You know plot my gums and capitals at some point to collect. I went I think about one of my best friend thing about his father all the time on man I want them to win for him yes because he's on the goes all the games and he's the one that's there every time in. You know think about my my fiancee and her family how dedicated they are to go one of those games on their traditions and stuff so I am an adopted son of this. The city in fan. Basic Jose so do yet we need a new one or two premier. That you can't help but think about that actually set I. I get out choked up thinking about in an in my mind envisioning. The sabres skating cup around the ice or the bills holding up the Lombardi trophy. And the reaction here and and and I don't have anybody in particular at satellite you know family. I don't there are many friends that I are big bills and sabres fans I don't have a particular person. But it's just the fan base in general. Any you know it goes back to have to the show when when junior called and interiors. When the school has bought the bills and they and we found out the bills are staying in buffalo. And people called up that day in tears and emotional because what it meant to them to their kids to parents who passed away raise them is bills fans. That was just the team that that was the team stay. I mean if they actually won a championship what it would mean to solve many people the calls we would take. Would be phenomenal. It just to experience what everybody's dealing with emotionally at that moment. Mean I tax clients Scott. All it feels right it is got a lot and also blowing with the fields well. I would here's one I would take a seven game extra gloss over in the hunt any political and I. I won a Super Bowl or cup from my dad he's 59 championship wouldn't feel the same without seeing his reaction I'm 26. And on the tax thanks guys and tearing up thinking about sobering and my dad read a playoff run in August the a playoff run in L a getting back to 0506. And I was I mean I lived here for a few years but now it feels like it was so long ago like. That meant everything to me and all five or six everything. And if they happen again now feels like a completely different life it doesn't sometimes I wonder well I ever carry as much as I did but I think it's just. You've probably come back to it you know you don't get people say this but the bills all the time like get it when they lose through there anymore by president leaves there's all the time. But cubs fans like that for I don't know that that cater to let you know like a century. It probably just comes back you know when you really. There's a difference between being in the upon making the playoffs and really truly believing. You can win. And to me that's a major difference there have been years he's never stopped caring no but there have been years when you know that the sabres two dollars and ninety doesn't tanner yeah. Yeah like I or any game but like c'mon let's be honest this team isn't winning the Stanley Cup and that the years of the tank were built on that belief like sure we can go have some fun if we want. Man. Really believing in your team is different. Two I believe the bills can make the playoffs yet employed to I really deep down and chat believe out of position a close to a championship now I don't right. And I won't until like. You know really see. What seven games strung together where it's like whoa wait a minute wait a minute this might be something. They don't drink all 550 join us 888550. To 515 here on WG. I. Mass I tax clients Scott all right he feels right it is we got a lot of muscle swollen with the feel our. Still flaunt. Usually it's. Trash incinerator of but until it's not so I don't half filled with trash usually rated hate more taxed my 59 year old that keeps saying in my lifetime for a sabres cup I want nothing more. The net so we can celebrate in his lifetime. More these tax. Tweet from Birmingham people if Jose treated son is 21 I'm 53. Perfect time for bills ever to win would be when grandson is over seven. Pilotless Tolliver bold on the grandson talked to my favourite they've gotten. Flip side and it ticketed surprises you anoint them along no audio or grand thugs like guidance text from Lindsay and 45 as the rays were on the bills and sabres are not old enough to appreciate the bills laughs must playoffs. I am old enough to remember no goal. My dad is 53 together we have a bottle of grey goose we decided to not open until a championship is won here in buffalo. And like to see championship in his lifetime. Yeah that's I I I think about all that I think about fathers and children and celebrations and all that stuff even even next generation sure grand grandfather father and and son or daughter everybody celebrating that. That would be just amazed and rob Texan is a good point. I'd sell my championship game tickets in a heartbeat. I'd rather be a houseful of my closest friends and family celebrating for me. It's always been about who I am width. It's it depends. If the sabres have a chance to clinch the cup on home mice. Like I could probably be with more friends and family by not being there yet but once it that far in that building is all friends and family event is it's if it's home ice though you can also go outside certain like I'm sure that. Our city would have. Had something readily available after one's going to let the NHL's shut it down because. I don't off in the plaza they want you watching on TV but yeah. I think look you know look at the fans outside Wrigley look at the fans outside Progressive Field last night think back to their. Cabs you know the home cavs games in the finals and that that that parking area they have set up right outside of of the Q in the fans were out there McGregor called and I I I would like to be I think I would like to be at the game to actually see it. Failing that sheriff Tom if I'm down near the stadium Erica be out of the masses celebrated in that B that would be a great feeling as well. Brett thanks holding on your on a WG are right ahead. We'll talk about it later. It actually Alcatel neighbors India and hot. Chocolate aren't you that it was one important right. And halting. Even a lot shorter. And yet you want to work work yet and or attacking. I don't I. You can't wait it out. Op. I hope they win or on all. You wouldn't call. Op. I don't care and why life and I'll buy it at. Z pot. And Iowa I'll call. Hold on one chip aren't. Don't don't take this wrong I'm a baseball fan that was my first sport I think it's gonna amount to nothing next season yeah. I'm not sure I'd pay a bit carry over effect. I'm a lot why people watch this series because of the cubs here's here's here's the tweet ready to 45 overnight rating puts this is a Cuban Lola. Highest Major League Baseball overnight rating. Since game seven in 2001 yank now remember that was yankees I'm that was Diamondbacks. Was post nine elevenths. It was rainy Johnson right he started as she killing was game six maybe Johnson gets sounds right but anyway it or vice Versa there were people like me. Massive Yankee haters. Who were in on the Yankees story because of what it meant for post 9/11. And what it meant to that city yup that game that series as well it was an experience beyond your basic sporting event. So this rating. Is the biggest since that. The cops. I think this I think the carrier or affect. Not gonna happen because it was the Chicago Cubs going for their first World Series champ 208 years this is the Rangers winning in 94 maybe that was a little while annoyed at it. They had a lock out the next June's national hockey but you know I would do David Gergen as it's great NHL the Rangers brought fans and your sport great seven game out there just got to thriving in the locker stupid game out for him for years I was in tenth grade it I think was temperate. Summer of 94 mr. Wilson's my English teacher I wrote in English paper about how the and it I'm dead serious. How the NHL lockout was killing any sort of positive vibes they got a lot to thank you for a while you're right. If you're right and I am right now gonna build up so anyway baseball soccer analog in hockey should have been listening he's one I was in tenth grade my wife was glued to the game last night. She's not watching baseball on next season and she considers herself the Dodgers fan she watched last night because it was the cubs it was game seven. Awful World Series one team had won and 108. Years. And the other team had won IQ can you met since 1948 that story adds. The people who had been 67. Ranked 6868. Years. Right okay so. The people who complain baseball's too long it's too boring it's this is that those people are not coming back and watching baseball next season on a regular basis because of this World Series. I don't know about that I ate I hear that a lot of times you get talk about momentum right like hey does this mean you're gonna get more viewers like. It happens with soccer by the World Cup comes take you carry this over to a US ratings not for the MLS but for the EPL. May be can not hot in the NHL take this world cup of hockey in transient invigorating sick they're probably not because the products office and for baseball for baseball. I think it's it's in a position to. With what baseball really needs it would mean you either have to rekindle a dormant fan or someone go and say I got to start watching more baseball it has to change its demographics. Baseball got to get to the younger yes baseball's skews very old Brad May yet baseball my crowd is watching bay and them out that's. Think whoever we talk about what these leagues need to do to get more viewers you know we're just. Toss and out our own ideas like how the NHL should put me David Matthews on this at a Rangers and Bruins because. The idea is keep fans coming in make new ones keep young ones get lifelong fans right. And baseball's demographics I think there might skew older than any other of our World Series demographics specifically don't they skewed it would the carry much forty plus crowd and it. And that's the NBA's very healthy because it's very it's just guys Missouri I. Son is watching the NBA finals yeah he not he's not glued in necessarily to the World Series than a regular basis with the Mets are now and the balls opponent for the most part. Ever gets everybody right. So I I I I hear yeah. To the caller I and I see the ratings. I saw something this morning that it was you know it was the best ratings and so for what happened and go for the Red Sox broke their 86 year drought. I mean it it it's. That over crazy. Massive story line that draws everybody and and I just. I love baseball I just don't think there's any sustaining it you had. And by the way it's. Chicago it's also a large market of 71. Share left in Chicago last night seven and that's at all so you also had a large market and you had a team with a fan base that is spread across the country. Yet you know what it ends up being and here's good tax from Jesse. Last year was locked in the NBA finals and by no means a basketball Faneca but resolute rooting for LeBron doesn't mean I'm a lot single regular season game this year and then another tax I watched last night I want to single game next season. What you've been able to have what a game seven gives she was specially the number. UFC fight for a Super Bowl it. Hey we've taken the sport that usually plays. A million games and then there are a million playoff games it was thing about today and you know there's a winner did that someone's getting a clear winner someone's getting a championship it boils down to one game to your ratings are gonna spike with that you know.
