Just he didn't touch me but he just blocked me from running Garbo. That was a real thought of he's approached for open that was a froze Mozilo and I'm just a leg amateur buffalo radio guy look at the may be deployments have on our show and as like ours here at one speculated. Right up up up up. That we get in early. Lord show you so let's just you know feel like you need to run why do you get some guys like some guys like or wandered around radio roll like all the filthy radio hordes doing like industry to do the little. An actor Joseph ports up at me in that I never liked it. About the time you forgot with a guy once or sitting that was made. Of but Cleveland Browns defense of back. This through one's some guy on the browns was over bilateral why it was a day where her do what we used to do is get bear. There are shows a three sometimes at times on different I think we've used in the times on with different. I was in Houston yeah so we got there in the morning. And we had a bunch of guys lined up through some PR. Company whenever there's. Thousands of come crawling allows her. Ended just lined us up. Of an admirable or blogger was one of them. Wilson the late Will Smith OK myriad of sources like one guy after another five to seven minutes. With each guy energy and we had a written down but it's wrong for Donovan McNabb yeah and well the locker all of them were right. Locker right got to do children from that he signed signed deals signed in order to lose their for a chunky soup with a right guard. Chunky soup with McNabb right. Chad Johnson was deodorant. Yes that's right that was Detroit so whoever this Cleveland guy wasn't just in the message while we did like six interviews in the Mike and our news is like bang bang bang bang bang these things out. And in the middle of what the fourth or fifth one with this guy and worship mayor and you just ask the question is going to be my time and I'll look at enemies talk in answering your question I'm like. Norton's guys. That's written please say something that indicates what team you played for missile alt click back in you know and I think he did like write a book he I can tell you don't it's. Being able thirty seconds he's talking like this can and I hope he says something indeed did a much. I was they'd probably get through it but that was. Slipped a bit in the back of my mind I have a lot of those stories they're just repress that the celebrity poker game with Kenny Maine now that was in Houston that was the kind of thing that you could only get to do there and that was awesome celebrity. Radio. There was a show Ryan just chime in whatever it is sleaze is interesting view if any of it ever has. Radio celebrity poker showdown. Phil Gordon was the pro poker player who was the analysts like the co host of that show. And he made the rounds in Houston and that was exciting to me like by the this is our third or fourth super poems like all mrs. Such a paying a not to sound either spoiled about it but it just a I don't like that at all I I I feel so cheap. And whatever. Use apple blog. Going up to these guys I don't wanna talk to them right feel like I have to ask them while they're sent over there to talk to people was one Ryan -- validate our existence we will talk to people down real anchored buck would go right so Phil Gordon comes around like that I'm into how we talk to Phil Gordon about his life. And so he agrees to to come over and the idea it'll have a poker game with Phil Gordon loss and. Whole. Antennae main agreement and edits and blue chips are light. It's all Super Bowl sweat it out like John junk drones are there pit stop. Our that was just a row owned we sort of collecting it when we set this up we irk you were very excited about it as was eyes. If you didn't have the man crush until Gordon you had so we started sort collecting junk. To have to use as currency for this quote Kirk if you. Magnets so we do that media guides and just just don't Pro Football Hall of Fame by old. It was so dumb idea somebody listening now might remember that but. Maybe not I mean that was on the year and a I think it was just so to hum. Now almost choked on peanuts we are using peanuts is shipped to the chips I was choking on the because Kenny Mayne was so funny and the old Gordon was bent over there we went to. Kenny means horse racing party. With Gary Stevens the jockey I think this horse racing night I think that was before that's how we set can email can do poker than I was before I guess you know all right and then there was the famous night at the end of that trip. The Houston trip beyond the end of the Houston tree so it's Friday night and Saturday we leave. Brian so Friday night in Houston the last you know that the last show wins and now we have the Friday night dinner some of the guys from the paper with us right. Including the late Alan Wilson. And amusingly lots of this is long time ago so were at this dinner. And I was like really excited the work week was over we're going home in the morning anything can happen the night right. So no this was 2004. January I believe January or February of 2000 that Eric is Leo boy Kirsten was shed. Bill's purpose server 23 and the whole time we were there you know was a couple of weeks away I was like an easy. Because it's gonna happen whatever so that's what it's fair rule for. Yes and I remember that for another reason though get too so it's it's the last night of the Houston week Friday night or at some swanky. Bar restaurant place eating. And dinner is over and still pretty early that we would about until six local time so nobody is aids. And I got a raring emirates golf cricket guy I've been hanging out what you were all weaker targets of them on the do right. Don't get Phil Gordon's numbers or call me later and we'll be doing this I probably didn't care who wanted to call may be. It what it wasn't real number they did call him but anyway who's looking for some action right. And there were these two women at the bar. A little bit older than the mountain black Wimbledon. And I'm just talking to and their super friendly and like what so let's go do some and among some looking for some of the due to produce on the Billick all right let's go. So the three of us had no. And eventually. End up in one of their cars so we're it's like I'm in the backseat of this car in the 22 women are in the front. And they start with announced some substance. That I had never seen before I don't know what that is and I escrow but I am looking forward looking for a story is what I'm looking they're hurt you would have for a memory and added a goal hold up. From the Super Bowl with a story. And so. And I'm I'm single I'm looking for I'm looking for a story and even in that. Frame of mind the two women serve with the amount whatever was a resort smoking in the car. Animal what are you doing up there was going on up there and say that from the back and I go to had to like the cab drivers have we don't hit. I might as well been a window in front of me at this moment but what's. There that we know nothing where we go. The dollar's gonna go to a place like. Yeah nodding and stuff yeah so this is it too much of memory yeah definitely I have never been that guy so I bailed on these women I just like. Almost all your force my way out of the car like used to sort of get out of this right now. And now I'm in like we've gone somewhere first. So now I'm in some parking lot somewhere in Houston no ride right on I I took the part of the car back to our beautiful motel. Yeah and I'm totally on my own which you know art school blew the cool but maybe it's 9:30 your time o'clock on this Friday night in Houston flight in the morning. And I don't know what I'm doing I have no plan at all called Phil Gordon. That's what I don't. Armed. I pride bill they felt member me a couple of yeah I fell Papa. Try to see which are up to I don't know that there. So that didn't pan out and I wobble back eventually somehow you wobbled back eventually and I A you know this is what this is this is the the second of these three trips we took. It was the first no. Yeah that's the first worst Houston church regularly right. So we've only been working the other since September. And you know I don't know you and certainly. We want to know now I mean I could always say I barely knew you can see how long we've been together now. It's just such a short amount of time to have been working together. And when I get up. I would I didn't do anything pride I did not go looking Freddie adventure there were no illicit substances in the front seat to many cars on his back get our soap was motel so there and we also are your wife is home expecting rough right so the alarm I mean I just I cannot wait to get home pregnant I just cannot wait to get home. And thought I would Obama told dislike us one time. Assistant to get on the plane. It's old. It's the calls early 0:6 AM sat on an hourly. But we have arranged to meet in the lobby of the bowl told the officer the motel lobby Houston office. And at what ever talk 6:6 AM maybe I don't know. And I get up from like. Why do you discuss either. Yeah would you at this point that you're not at all on your lacking for I don't talk I don't trust you voiced the opposite Wright but used to know you are used you're used to people are all yet. I'm used to my children where I'm used to my friends who light. Probably are in jail and that's an air. They probably have the substances that these women at what reverently lifer I just I did some shade for its so. I like there's no way he's been here you know and some sort of daily column one week but all is Olympic it is somewhat you know we all the college that we form the enormous player got a goal I don't know how to reach you. There's no way to reach you think I don't know whenever. And then he showed up yeah just came right at the time when I was maybe five minutes early got a cup of coffee and like Europe barely got the scope. That's right there's two more. Super Bowl memories here on WGR registering and just a couple quick morph. Quick other things from from that day the Saturday. When we returned one is I mean I was so I was exhausted I was upset. I did not get my store I got that story but it was a difference but I just. It was so early. And we were in the airport screening line and a lady caught through. But right ahead she got to go worse in the super slow line and just everything's being checked and slick the worst. And some lady was when her husband and her husband walked or up to the gate and I don't know like what exactly happened but she got right through and IE you know is mad about illegal and should be punished he get to go right click it's sort of a cycle moment or how does she get to go right through. We eventually get through would go to work eat and she's at our gay. And I was like in one of those moods and I don't like it when amend that I said something to her I said what did you say to be able to couple line. They kind of wanted her to know that I knew who should cut the line and says I have MS. And so ahead of fuel real real good its credit haven't looked at the British are a lot of crap out of my crystal apple. Okay so that aren't above you what like a hole that we got home from Houston and I had an email from my ex girlfriend. That said Powell her grandmother had died. And her grandmother and my grandmother college friends and lifelong friends. And her message was woman died recently stopped seeing. Her message was I thought you were your grandmother would like to know that my grandmother had died. And I called her back and said I'm really glad that you or a colder I think they got an email colder so I'm really glad that you share that with me. And if you wanna you know get a drink some time I would be opera that and then we were married. Like eight months later at. Write to her grandmother doesn't die or not McKnight I know is that right doesn't play out the same way right Super Bowl memories yeah. You may have different ones out maybe the actually senator on the you know via athletic of the football or. They play the game. You guys have all these stories you act like those those years of going to the Super Bowl or words that he's got about twenty minutes out well imagine if you count golly I like we or our show all might be a part of all was solid. To be hole is open to get a degree you talked about it. You didn't you've just take advantage of bullets holes before the I I'm not know. At an age where I wanna take advantage of that stuff play LA I wanna go to those of the you know the the maxim party doesn't sound like a great time to me it just sounds like a bunch of people who do what I do for a living but wanna move from Jacksonville just coddle eventually and so they're just like running around giving out business cards and like wild oats. There are so why part of that again are you mad about this right I'm going to use under a grounded I live in Bible on a second get on the way but it's over I'm not trying to get the the better job I mean zero blocked in their spirit but buffalo. You know you're stuck with them a well sold 200 all of it no I don't at all so I would never say I don't like that we went. I'm just saying I don't I like that we don't still go. That's for sure that's all I don't I don't miss it. I like this that happened I went to five or six of mom that's a great times Mets are great people that those things but a lot of it's just relief. Which what you said before. Just feel like yours such a part of a machine. And that doesn't feel garlic chasing Clayton around. We're chasing Peter King back I Jason Peter King right now tree trees in the players around just you feel. I can remember walking. To me this was the same day is that media day story or my boss called he wept as slick metal. I can remember walking to the patriots hotel in New Orleans and seeing Tom Brady alone. Outside the front of the hotel on his phone. And going and let's interest thing. Because as he's the starting quarterback of one of the teams probably on that day that week. It wasn't all right official that he would start the game what so it played in the championship game yes and they have won and I remember. Making an argument that day or one of those days on the are deployed socialists are the game. Because you know like all the stuff that I would never say now. The hope because experience and that the pressure or government or somebody just told we don't care about all then I would've I would've cared about it I did. Mike Paul Bledsoe should totally start the schema for Brady. He's about a quarterback he's just better noted then you would have thought I think you're right there where did a terrific idea and so played whatever how many games twelve games whoever played thirteen games yeah I think so I think what I thought that yes just like I was. Thinking he should play. Tom but does that remembering him standing by himself but when we're Tom Brady ever be by himself right thickened in public. Almost never threatened. You know I now believe the definitive. But everything that we just that I described described. That you I think largely agreed with as far as like what the scene is like. I can boil it down like this and I'm sketchy on what ended up ultimately happening whether or not we talked to this person on the show hole. Or just watched him walking through but this is in Detroit is our third and final trip. And were sitting there and we've torch was set up it was in this this convention senator and it was like a long circular. I away Alex we're with radio show set up on either side of this long circular I'll. And every one he's just there and like walking into that circle and beginning to walk either direction is just like running a car. For these people right. At any celebrity whatever they're just making the rounds. And Pat Summerall we didn't get them we didn't get us from us up but he he like came he came walking by. And we thought we hope to talk to pass morally that would be awesome. And I may be while we were wishing or thinking that we're talking about that someone who was representing the vivid. Video warn women. Came over and asked us if we wanted to help them. And I'm sitting there I want Pat Summerall. White yeah legendary. Professional. Eight plus list broadcaster. Is is on our radar. And here comes the guy with the business card for the enrollees. Like you would you like to have would you like to have them please be out like. No yacht. We didn't do what do we do that I I don't. Missing no I don't know we I don't know I can guarantee that we. But it was just the quintessential all of its it's the good ever read grade a publicity is represented like that veterans are colliding that is the Super Bowl it's. Pat Summerall. And portly eighties. And better. Right there right on top beach. I but they're just right there there and I got to start very tall and vision at the same time and I'm thinking about Pat Summerall ought to be like to talk to Pat Summerall I got a guy. Look at badly trimmed goatee asking me I wanna talk to cornstarch. I mean maybe not maybe later talked insurer but like right now like this is that is possible. That is being at the Super Bowl not the game but the week old miserable that is what do. So much this is coming back to me now until that chalks story today about Edwin Pope you help the time we had ripped Rea in San Diego we have Rodney Harrison who played for San Diego. We Rodney Harrison. And jaw bureau always today at this dance I was your he was your best friend and he went on with Rodney Harrison about how he saw him play in college and and we meet let me about this one play I saw you making college and even I was there but I remember this one play you made he went on fully commit and then Harrison goes that's not where it went to school. I think it ticket it. Marshall and Bulldog the sabres play tonight in Montreal that was our extra half an hour to 630. So there's there we put the extra and our broad. We'll have rob ray on the floor this WGR. We're a month ago are thought it was really it just should for a vote to forge a bond. Get back into it it's a hard thing to do you know we've portrait of a last June and you want to smoke point. We gained two point that month. That is what happens. The sabres are errors still. Looking up. Add a few teams in the way between themselves and a playoff spot as the season resumes tonight in Montreal game 49. Out of 82. And we had you know be we have these old dalliances with. Diss of talking about the sabres as a playoff threat. But they end quickly and you have. You know national is well I'm one game away from really wanting to look at this of them you lose next game and that's happened. I don't know the times this year he I wanna say every time that it's started to get. Like serious or were hurt but if they win this one then flew like. I think each time there's been I don't know what sale Pratt fall but they do just have been a disappointment following that in minutes or so scared to settle back into. Him. Took a worried about a bogus whom you know hopefully play good or whatever I don't know but. I think with the way it is right now. I would roll Detroit out I I probably would rule ball pull out. Important goal. With that said be surprising if one of these teams down there with as few was 49 points got hot and took a spot from some soul. That could be decision may be somebody may be Ottawa to tale ball Boston's only gets hurt. You don't Ronald wanna be young guard something happens or who knows is Stella Marie has made this point honestly we had this horrible injury early. Who knows if that isn't gonna happen to somebody else at some point in the season the long season. So. I'm not ruling out all these teams that are bunched in there is just you know to me Europe it's a long shot to just pick which one it's going to be ago. But yet it's going to be my team because blank should always be chasing and. And there there are lesser lower numbers you know lesser numbers rethink government have a chance but 95. You would think you're gonna make it specially this year. Ninety you might think you have a chance at noon so get to those numbers and means. That's all you worry about right probably. And that still mean what is that that is not likely bright and has never been likely benign the numbers for you were talking about still 51. She's 41 points away. From that and they've got what 3033 games three games you want 41 points to make it interest thing I think that that's right. So give me EE 1510. And five. That would give you 41 points or ninety. 1810 and five. You do that that doesn't sit and lazy good I mean it's eighteen and fifteen yep. Doesn't sound on and yell on achievable to me would you rather he. Twenty here 2011. And two. That's 42 points it's almost the same and that's 91. Not sound better each some harder. Yes does right by neither seemed. I want to predict that one of these teams. Suburb the islanders were 51 points I'll include Florida if you want Rick. From bear down in the standings night's events Florida Tampa buffalo Detroit. Islanders Carolina Jersey one of these teams makes the play offs X somebody's gonna get hot in did didn't give that number and somebody else something gonna do you rail. It's got to be fumbled the ball this division in the Atlantic command I or Philadelphia or Philadelphia okay very spot right now right. Soul but something's gonna deep well one of those teams secure work for Philadelphia I would wanna bet you. But it's just not too crazy that bright. No more than one. You what your what you're saying is you're predicting that more than one that. Team that currently holds a playoff spot in the fallout. By the end of it to tour more or fallout by the end of it you beliefs and that's one but then one more after mountain. Right and I don't think that's creek I I'm not I wouldn't assume that at all. But I don't think that that's crazy right I don't for the flyers have wanna I wanna action on the right I don't think I'm exactly yeah I'm not saying I assume it but I would I would bet. I like Carolina for that but I would I would bet on it I'm you know you don't what Carolina should do at borders and the umps a looking for. Yeah well are we can talk aunts and you don't you don't put Carolina should do. Carolina should trade for bishop. Are talking again like. But the guys just like with football hockey guys you're the talk the same people and you've got Elliot Friedman in pure LeBron or sand. Yeah I hear the Tampa Bay wants to trade Ben Bishop. Which are okay and then I mean that's not confusing why they would wanna do that. The expansion draft coming up they've got a good goalie behind him neither of their goal always had a great year. But they like. Vessel west uses name they'll like him and so. Bishops contractor and I'll. And yet they should you do that I think they should still do the best lefties head out of a tough year to one of the reasons with the should be out. That Tampa has struggled to save percentage last time the sabres play them was what around 900 bishop is 905 I think parents sold a goaltending is not in this kind of I think probably let them down without studying them I think you know you look at that kind of number you like that's tough that's a tough year for your goalies Carolina. Is a good team with four goaltending. Carolina should try to do certain. Now that's a rival. And maybe Tampa Bay doesn't do that for them. Burns on the price. But Carolina is the team in that mix that should make that trade. If the sabres were different I wanna talk about that but the sabres are not a team that's a goal away from making a pusher but they're they're doing pretty good goaltending. I expect Nelson to falloff. In the second half the statistics show that almost has to happen so when he starts now I'm worried. But you know I would wanna give him his due credit for an excellent season so far sure just think you got to know. What's likely to come up Leonard plays tonight. The sabres are not a team that benefits from bishop. It's it's I think we all agree on baton. Plus you'd have to give up something the expansion draft so you and I were talking about trying to figure out the expansion draft a little bit in here before the show. And from what I can tell I'm still a little bit confused by a couple things but from what I can tell. The sabres are not a team that has to worry about this. Some teams will have to worry more than others. About. Who they might have to expose an expansion draft. I think with the sabres who have a couple of guys. You're some obvious guise of Michael Reinhart who were exempt because they're so young you don't have to protect them. And to a wanna give details on fans will notice other others won't. You you have the choice every NHL team has as. Two choices. For. What kind of format they wanna use for their protective list I think is much detail as you feel you can provide you should because I sort of I needed refresher on this spoke out here. And this this will go until mid June the deadline for finalizing this is mid June probably right after the finals. But the sabres every team can choose to either protect seven forwards and three defenseman. Plus a goal lead or eight skiers plus a goal is that's a lower number and if you wanted to protect more defenseman that way you could. Seven and three or eights. Either way you have to have. Protect one goal lead you also have to expose. One goal lead who is yours. Now that's interest thing in this like I could get to a point here right I'm not sure but. What terrorism is going to be restricted free agent. And the sabres. Can make him a qualifying offer. And then. And expose him to do expansion draft that probably would not wanna do that I'd probably wanna protect him I wouldn't if they had someone. We really good that was like. Laying down the door then dead that would be among OK so you don't have that so if you assumed they would want to protect letter saying I think that means they will need another goalie. Sue Expos in the expansion draft. You have to expose if I read it correctly. You have to expose. A goal at the Nielsen is going to be UF faith and if that's the case as of may June they can't. Used Nelson in the expansion draft at pick someone else maybe Omar would be an hour a day of angle of the full mark is going to be an RF a I think he qualifies you year's pearl like I idea been a pro for three years as is this thirty year. I think you might need that to add that might ask why that might not work because she member was a surprise that he showed up last fall. After having the double hip surgery the that was his first time in North America to all the teams have. All of a goalie like best that they can put into the expansion draft what you need to protect one. But they're also have one in the draft and if all our isn't. Eligible then I don't know what you do what you might need someone else somehow to be eligible for that but that means signing Nilsson. So that you can use him but like think about that negotiation. We would like to sign you for next year. And the agents would be keen to the expansion draft peace and maybe think. That's. This is gonna mean that I'm going to be it was in the draft that he would get picked the Vegas is gonna pick two goalies. And Maria Marc-Andre Fleury there you could have program you could have other good goalies in their Hollywood yet. What don't you all were me I think that's an awkward negotiation although it does is it might depend. You just sadly you're expecting him to fall off if he dollars. It's sort of revert to more like the goalie he was when the sabres signed him late I mean it was late in the summer at least bite freeagent standards. It's. It was sort of like blue were don't know what else to do we're gonna grab this guy that's how it. Felt awesome and I'm sure they would tell you it was different than that but. Maybe he'd like having some degree of certainty a meter gold with buffalo or biggest takes me in on the biggest goal as opposed to. I'm sitting around until the middle of July or early July wondering if someone's gonna call me give me an NHL job. Like that there is some appeal to that but. If he doesn't fall off to dramatically. And ends the year where respectable numbers certainly career high numbers save percentage in particular. Then. He might wanna just hit the U of a market Wiki he might end up like Chad Johnson got I somebody's gonna want me to at least be their back up and see what I can do for them and maybe you know. Date may get lucky and I turn out to be better than that even so I you'll be tough to get him signed before the draft. So they have say it's the eight skaters who would they be post so they would be required to protect they would want to. O'Reilly would be somebody obvious for that. Wrist polite and McCabe perhaps. Would be choices for that Astaro absolutely it's not easy to get to eat if they entertain would be another one he's under contract for one more year. There'd be some people vote that might think they would want to. Leave him available depends on what else the rays and there's not a lot else and that's you have restricted guys like Gergen sens and Marcus for Leno. Maybe they if you qualify them than they would need to be protected I think that's how that would work. So I think the sabres are probably eighteen it's not lose much Molson and Georges have. No trade or limited no trade clauses in their contracts. Which I believe means that they can be exposed and I think the sabres would love it's kid sure if Molson and maybe Georgia's two got picked up that way. You have got away from that it'd have to pay of those guys at least Molson right. Absolutely and I think absolutely but no way is that gonna happen well unless. Mean. Your take a five million dollar Matt Olson on Vegas your money need to get to the floor. Mean it depends what sort of players salaries are available out there in the expansion draft. Beat you you're gonna have to get somewhere. So old he might not look like a terrible idea just for that just to serve that purpose war a couple years while you're sort of figuring your team now. But you're only thirty players and you'll need to be around at least 45 million. Vegas. So they should be able to do that. Yeah I'm not predicting it's picked aren't merely saying if if they find themselves short line you know giving the floor than than a player like that but because I just think if if the sabres displayed when this plays out. Don't protect the guys or even the other way seven and three and whoever is available in the draft over it's taken from them should not be a player that means a lot. Well there you are not in any out there not any real danger multitude sending about the system figure out what the timing things. If it's right that Omar is not. Eligible. Doesn't fill their requirement than they're gonna have to figure something out mean this is. Who who can stay at this Obama what all did they signed Montoya. To a contract extension and most everyone's wife yeah most everyone observing him like but it. Rockets that victim got Carey Price obviously that the according to protect and they'll have a goal to put into the Clinton does this mean that there are backup goalies getting offers all over the league right now from their current teams. The veteran pitcher are the journeyman is all get that are the journeyman all getting. Calls from their GMs and we wanted we wanna talk about one year extension for you it might get interesting I mean Montoya is the only one that springs to mind is a guy that's got Matt. Well Thomas Grice just got an extension out on Long Island I think to be their number one guy so they can expose flocked. I did he get what they did but they have to get picked right it's not just ball runner to a total summits they have to get chosen roles are still yours right you can't just don't remember that the that's. 8030550. Iran brave from Montreal got a text from the source. With information. About what rob did last night smokers for instance just.

If time since we're still here and you yell at me because I'm not allowed to say I love it if I just found it and listen to her for a day. That's not enough for me to be able to say I love it I have to love it more than generals don't count you don't qualify it won't be enough right. I'd just self imposed come to be taught that way he he would say I'm just oppose or whatever. But I love that song and I don't care who knows it.
