The guys celebrate their 1 year anniversary at Daly's Irish Bar in NE Philadelphia.

The post Episode 32: 1 year anniversary appeared first on Wildfire Radio.

Good afternoon everybody, all you folks here at the lovely daily's Irish pub. Thanks for coming out this afternoon. I hang out with us. It's our anniversary party, our birthday party for the Sana bood first gang and the CRAC Bell Crew Gang, or the wildfire sports radio. We got a nice afternoon and hang out with be talking sports or going to be reminiscent about how we got here, probably busting stones, like we know wrmally do. We got some drink specials going up there. We got J from POPs MCC Han's iris whiskey here for a little whiskey tasting on the first thank Dall he's for allowing us to come in here and and use the space to celebrate our birthday. So first up you got me and my name is Jim Marcus, and next to me here we have the magnificent one, magnificent Dick Martin. How are you, D I'm doing great to me. How you self do all right? Good. We've been on vacation for a little bit, so a long time. Yes, it's been. I've been itching to get back behind them, Mike, it's nice to have the have the break out. The time off was able to get some things done around the house and whatnot, but some work. Yes, knock down someone at honey do list. Yeah, that true, Mary, yeah, exactly. Actually don't work around the house. Here's he's just talking, okay, but yeah, I've been waiting for the last two to three weeks. I've been anxious to get back because that I enjoy doing this a lot, as do I. Yes, it's great being here. And where does one year go? Right, and what a great year it was. It was. For you folks that don't know our shall give you a little bit background. So we have usually have a couple other compatriots with us here, but we are different generations of Eagle season ticket holder. So our main focus is the eagles. It's the birds, it's our love. But we'll talk the other sports with throwing a little beball, little phillies. I like to talk flyers every once in a while, but I usually get beat down with that. I'm okay with flyers, okay with the boy. Yes, I'm thankful the phillies are making summer interesting. Yeah, because I thought early, late May, early June it was going to be a long summer to football, with the way things started to fall apart. Thank God they picked it up and are making it interesting and looking good. So let's look in real good. Let's go off that topic then, because today we're just we're just get to we're vampant today. We're just going to get a couple couple topics here. But UH, when I when I first got here, we're up there talking to me, Stephen and been about the phillies. And are they legit? Do you believe they are? Who They are? Literally Twelve Games of twelve games above five hundred? Yes, I know they're in first place. is a still percentage points? Are they actually a half a game up at game up? Whatever, I think. I think they are legit as I watch a pirate cross the plate. I think they are legit team. What was holding them above water, treading water, early in the season? was there pitching? Their bullpen has never been an asset so far yet, except for sorry Anthony at the mingus. It was their starting pitching that kept them above water early in the season. And Oh double's Bat, not much. He wasn't getting a whole lot of help from the rest of the lineup at the plate. He has. He cooled all significantly, as did, and I think the rest of the team just never picked it up and then, you know, come late May, early June, it was that combination of the lack of their starting pitch and started to fall apart. Plus they still weren't getting their bats in order, and it led to you know, they they ended up in first place that Saturday and I think two days later they were in third place. You know what all, the team goes in first place in two days later, not second they're in third place. Was that after the Yankee series, though? No, no, no, as a while ago, was back in late May, early June, and they they lost, you know, several games they lost. They started losing three or four series in a row and it was just it was a rough doubting and I thought the June swoon was upon his and that it was going to be a long summer. And you know, they've picked it up. The actually the bull pen has been holding their own. You know, they were wearing out the MINGUS, but the rest of the bullpen is kind of stepped it up, picked it up and and they're certainly holding their own. To starting pitching is, you know, Nola is just always he's a he's an Allstar he's a pleasure. A lot starting pitching. Yeah, yes, it's Zach Efflin had a great June on their to walk to Arra and five and Oh, oh double's been streaky. The rest of a team still. I just can't imagine what this team is going to...

...be like if they ever pick it up with the rest of the bats, if hoskins starts doing what he's capable to. Kingary, you know, I understand he's on. There a lot of pressure with the contract. He's only he's a young Kidia. He's twenty two, I think, twenty one, something like that, and he looks like he's about fifteen. Yeah, and he's small to begin with, so I you know. And he's playing out of position. Hoskins is playing out of position position, you know. I know. There's a lot of factors and Gabe is learning on the job. There are a lot of things that are contributing to them. You know, they're playing well, but they're also I don't think they're at their full potential and you know, I'm curious to see when they do get to the full potential, what they can be like. Now I will say this. I think that Yankee series kind of exposed the phillies. Yeah, you know, yeah, we're good, but we're not that good. Yeah, you know, we're not Yankee, we're not that there level, that we're not anywhere here, that we're not at the ash shows or not at the red sox or not at the Yankees level yet. And they got some work. But I mean, considering what we were expecting out of them before the season started, much like the Eagles, and I'm not gonna pair ament to the Eagles winning the Super Bowl, but much like we didn't expect much from the birds before the season. We weren't expecting we're, you know, maybe a couple games over five hundred best. They've really opened up some eyes and they've been a pleasure to watch. Things of starting to come together and I think, Um, I think they're going to hold their own for the rest of the summer and they're going to be in contention, despite what I wrote on facebook during that that late May, early June slump. So I think after Arietta had his comments and comle months ago and called the team out, it appears like they're playing more like a team. And they're all young kids right, they're all they're all kind of learning and but Ariett it and just kind of fell off yes the cliff, like he didn't have a good summer until he won lastin pitched a great game last night. MMM. But if you can get Noah Arietta, efflen keeps doing when he's doing and that's a solid rotation that hopefully can carry us through the summer. And then you talking about the bats. Do we do? They make a move? You want to see Machado come here? I think they do that. I want to see him come here if he's going to resign, I don't want them here if he's not committed to resigning. I mean I know you can't get a commitment out of a guy during a season, but get some top some type of indication out of them. You know how you feeling about playing here long term, because I don't want to give up a lot of prospects and potential players down the road. Our prospects one guys find two months. Yeah, you know, our farm is finally starting to get some good players down there and I don't want it to pleat it again. Yeah, he's a real solid player, good shortstop, really good with the bat and I think he would definitely help the team out. There's no doubt he would help the team out, but I don't want to. Let's face it, will the phillies? The chances of the phillies making the world series right now are not they're not better than fifty. In fact they're probably two thousand five hundred and seventy five. What's the learning them? Tommy? You should know that he's not paid attention to me. Oh well, but and and wo getting the Chatah, what does how much does that increase the chances of the phillies making the world series? I don't think he's significantly increases the chances of the phillies making the world series. So and I definitely don't want to do it that if we're only going to get them short term for this the rest of his year, I need, I need to get some sort of long term commitment out of him before, or at least, you know, that kind of lip service out of him to think about doing that move. I I would much rather just forego that move and try and sign them when free agency opens up after the season. And what I think they need to do is I think they need to get a another arm in the rotation, preferably a lefthander, somebody that's playing in Texas right now. Yeah, yeah, I've heard the name Cole Hammil's mentioned. I wouldn't mind seeing him coming back. I think his numbers aren't the best, but you know that's the product of playing in the American league, playing on a bad team. He's not going to need to come in here be the ace. No, he's not. Number two, absolutely, number three. Yeah, if you know, I don't expect any more than a three out of him. Yeah, and I think, you know, he would love to come back to it a team that's in contention up to a place that he knows well that we loved them before. I think we would take them back with open arms. Yep, and they I think they need a lefthanded arm and in the rotation, because it's all right, he's right now. Yeah, you know, and teams plot accordingly. Probably.

I don't think it would cost too much to get cold. No, I don't either. So I think. Think I've read I don't know if it was for Hammils or or somebody else, but if we were to pick him up, we only owe them eight million, I think, for the remainder of the season, for the rental. Yeah, which isn't too bad. Now I don't know if Cole Hammil's contract I think he's in the last year of the contract that he's signing. They said that's why he's on the yeah, he's on the block. Yes, I but, yeah, I would all to get him back again see get you to the world series. Not Likely, but it would be nice. It's nice to taste all the option. Yes, nice to taste layoff. Absolutely keep the keep the winning in the city going. Yes, yeah, yeah, you know, thank God the Eagles spoiled us. Yeah, yes, they did. And would a great year to start a podcast. Right, and we come in and we'll probably talk a little more to us throughout the day. You know, let's just get in there and let's talk do some game analysis, post game stuff. And you know, this team just kept winning and winning and went and one of my favorite shows that we did was when we went through the predictions. We went through the season, MMM, game by game, and what we thought the record would be. And one of our normal cohost here, Fenster, the young kid, the young optimistic guy, Namos, had them at twelve and for yes, and Deacon I you know, we're sitting there the the kind of scoffed, corned yes, fans, now, they're not all do that. Yeah, that's not gonna happen, David. You're your trays right eyed with that. Yes, still wet behindeears kid. Yep, and he proves that. One step aside and let the old guys. Yes, let us continue in our misery. Yeah, and it was. It's was just a great ride. Yeah, all those playoffs shows, and you're so right. We couldn't have picked a better season this start a podcast. And how many times throughout the course of the season did we say that, either on air or pre or post show? Yeah, we were like, you know, how great is? We couldn't have picked a better time to start a podcast. And you know it just every week it became more and more apparent how great our timing was. Yeah, and it was just it was just a great thing to see, to start and to see take off. And I felt as the season went and the team got better, so did so did we. Yeah, our constant improvement. I was talking our numbers. I thought you were talking us. Yeah, but we got better to at least I like to think of it that way. If you go back and listen to some of the shows. It's like the beginning of the season. I know I was. I was hard on Peterson. I didn't believe in Peterson. Buddy Day. Nobody Dat Orson and Roseman. It was like this is their last year. Guys got to do something. Yes, they're not going to be here at the other the season. I well, I wasn't quite ready to put Doggie on the on the hot seat yet, but I was a little anxious about him. I certainly had question marks. I question why he was hired. I questioned the system, the process on which he was hired through. I thought that they didn't do a thorough enough job looking for other candidates, interviewing all the candidates. Yeah, I think Duke Staley was just a because they had two kind of thing, because it a rooney rule, the and and I'm drawing up out at the Tom Coughlin, that was a joke. Yeah, that was a joke of a process. He had no intentions of coming here now, even I think you guys ever twice. Yeah, it's kind of place against the giant. See get back out out of them and exactly, and I think it was all just a joke process. And then they brought in Doug Peterson after about two weeks of, quote unquote, looking for candid you know, looking for a potential coaches, and damn, they're hired them on the spot. Almost it seems like, yes, like you got to be kin to me. The you know, I know he's been an offensive coordinator, but he was an offensive coordinator for the worst head coach to be an offensive coordinator for. Yeah, because you're you're basically stool. Yeah, you know, you just stand in there with the headset on and with little input into the process. In my opinion, I think that's anybody that's a head offensive coordinator for Andy. It's just window dressing. You're not there really contributed, and I wasn't. Wasn't real happy with his hiring. I questioned it be. Could you know his head coaching experience was a high school school, you know, some high school downstauth somewhere. Yeah, so I wasn't real impressed with with any of it. They come out three, you know, was first years. Everything's looking good and then the wheels fell off and it just kind of cemented how I felt about the whole thing. But he was, he is, too...

...risky. It seemed like, yes, right, yeah, all these yeah, fourth thounds, going for and just where it was. Hey, you kind of thinking he's an offensive cording any but, like you said, he doesn't have the experience. It seems like he's learning it on a fly with this. Yes, you don't want that out of your head, coach. Now, so now, but again, it's the season went on. It's and you see what he's doing and he sticks to his guns. Yeah, and you appreciate that. It still makes me squir him sometimes, right, see him going for them. Right me. I it's funny. You mentioned the fourth downs, because you know my kids. They love playing madden NFL, of course, Yep, and it cracks me up. They'll go for it on fourth down. It could be fourth and thirty, it on their own fifteen and they'll go for go for it, and I'm like, what are you doing? Why do you it's this isn't real football. They don't do that real football. And it all low and behold. We get it. We get a coach that just might do that one day. Yes, and and he goes for it. And when I would see that, I would think of myself criticizing my two kids. Were doing that all in NFL and I'm like, Damn that we got a real live coach that's doing this sort of thing. You know, maybe not thirty two, you know, fourth and thirty from their own fifteen, but he's so he's around the fifty yard line with three to five yards he's going. I'm like, what are you doing? Say the same thing. You take your kids. What are you doing? Yes, this is real fund take time. I think about this. Just punt the damn ball and set up defense. But though and behold, you know, it worked out for most, most times it worked out. And you know a lot of times you see coaches come playoff time, they get real conservative, getting tolay it tight, calling Yep, and you know if it's even a question mark, that the tiny little question mark it going for it. They don't go for it. They punt. You know, they do the safe move. And come playoff time, dog didn't give you. Didn't give it. Damn. He was like, you know, who cares? Go for it, let's go and and in the and then come the super bowl greatest play, and probably, I dare say, I think, the greatest, funniest riskiest play in Super Bowl history was was the phillies Las. Yes, you want Philly, Phillis yeah, and that whole conversation is just classic. But the confidence that they both had at that moment. MMM, then that nick goes over it, since now let's you want to do Philly, Philly, and dumb half a second thinks about it. Just yeah, yeah, do it. Yeah, the confidence and just watching him through that playoff. Yell, now he grew up. I'd how don't grow yeah, yeah, yeah, it was the progression, like you said, how he grew to progression in his in his development. It was just a really fun thing to watch and it's really enjoyed after watching what we watched for fourteen years when an Andy was a good coach. I never thought he was a great coach. You know, time management, clock management, time out management, it adjustments on Sundays. He never mastered any of those even a case. Still hasn't massed at those things. And then we had those three years of chip. Yeah, and it was just get the years. Yeah, I know, but I mean it's such a breath of fresh air to watch this guy operate and he can adjust or fly. And they are second half team. There were there were several games are like going into halftime like, Oh man, this is not looking good. Yeah, and they come out in the second half and just blow the doors off of something us. And it was it was a lot of fun watching him grow and develop and become the coach he's become. He's only in his second year. Second Year. Yeah, they you drawing. Earlier you said you didn't want to make the comparisons to the phillies, but Kapler's kind of in the same right then, Kapler, a lot of people, myself included, are kind of on the fence or just don't like I don't know any people in the fence about him. I don't know many people that have come out and said I like him. He was the help, he was the right und yeah, it's neither. I'm unsure. I'm going to give him some time or now. I I can't stay in them. I don't want him hear any longer. But canny have maybe to tape the peers and progression, you know, learning a little bit this year, figuring out how to actually be a manager. Yeah, and then next year. And at that I wanted to say something about area opening up his mouth. Yeah, and he kind of like fell off a cliff if there he said that and he was he was not the picture that we thought he was for what the next four or five starts after he said that, and you know, it's kind of like watch what you wish for, because you just might get it type of thinking. And Yeah, like you said, he had the solid start last night. If he can get back on track, you know, it's going to go a long way to helping this team make strides to the playoffs. And I...

I'm still kind of sort of on the fence about Gabe. You know, I like I like the outside of a box kind of thinking, you know, on occasion. Yeah, I prefer the Gut. You know, I'm old school that way. I prefer coaching, you know, with proven methods as opposed to well, let's see if this works, you know, type of deal. I'm willing to go that way some sometimes. If, you know, if if a game's out of hand one way or another, sure, or why not? You know, year they're yeah, you're going to win the game regardless or you're going to lose the game regardless, so let's go for it. But in tight games and things like that, you know, I kind of feel let's go with the proven method. Yeah, and what way of managing maybe the fact that he's he's a younger guy, right, so he's more yeah, with these young kids on the team. Yeah, he's handling that part of the right now, I think. Right, right, but the actual managing the game is still, yeah, suspected. Yes, yes, it is. And I mean, I guess if it continues the way it has come the end of the season, we got to give them as props, especially if they make the playoffs. Yeah, regardless of what they do in the playoffs, eventually we're going to have to give them as props if they get there, you know, and even if they don't get there, but they have a you know, a good, solid season, winning record, guys were improving. You know, you got to give the guys props and I guess you got to give us his coaching staff some props to. Yeah, now is there? I Don't know the coaching staff as like I should. In Years Past I've known guys that were in the coaching staff and what they were like. What is his coaching staff like? Are they old school or they more the analytic type of thinking? Yeah, you got me there. Yeah, I don't know. I would I would hope that he has at least one guy in there. That's old school, kind of like a BOA right betch coach, and it's I think, bout what is on the staff. Isn't he? Is He still there? He still I don't know if he's still must is Larry Bow was sold staff. Phills bench coach. That's that's where I'm at. They got yeah, true, yeah, US, yeah, yeah, yeah, you know, I used to know all to or to pitching coaches. I don't know who to pitching coaches. I don't know who to hitting coaches. None of this bench coach, none of that. Come right, right, Pete. Yes, yeah, I'm going to expect you to know this for the show next week. I will, I'll do my homework. You got hopeful here? That out? Are we go? Justin's got it. We got. Yeah, go ahead, jump on now. Yeah, I don't see lory bow on the staff. was there any hey, that's a veterans. Are they all young? Larry Bow is not on the staff anymow. I don't recognize one name on the staff. Rob Thompson is the bench coach. Who exactly that the singer for a? That's Rob Thomas. Dusty wailing or waking. I'm sorry, Chris Young, John Now, he was a player, I think young played with Cat Rickney, Franitz Pedro, Oh Pedro Guerrero, he's the assistant hitting coach. Jim Got No, don't know these guys. All right, so I'll that's how we that's how we weave in and out here. Yeah, Philly's eagles. Back to phillies. Thanks. I'll expect a full analysis of the roster. You got that? Next week? All Right? Yep, Yep. Take a quick shout out to the sponsors again. Thank you to day he's Irish pub for allowing us to have the party here. And don't forget, we got my man J Figo here in the corner his POPs irs whiskey. If you want to come over and have a taste, they love to give you a taste. So that is some good stuff. Yeah, we've had a little verify've had a bit of it. It's the definition of smooth. So now we're coming back. Big target on our backs. Oh Yeah, where the team actually though? I think the Patriots are still yeah, Fade. Are they are? I've heard the odds whatever. Yeah, exactly, whatever. It's only because of two people, Brady and Bella check if one of them are both in them. Ever go, they will no longer be the faith. Now. And who who do you think's the more important one there? Well, Bella check is yet to take a snap on the center. So Bella check and being so one with the...

...likes of Matt Castle and, yeah, Jimmy Garoppolo. I mean Brady's the one that goes out there and executes all to please you know. Yet a coaches put the players in position to make be successful in this and that, but the players have to go out and do it. So I got to go with Brady. That would have been great to see them break up. I remember there was rumbling to the other season. Oh yeah, I think at all. He Wheah, job at did grants? Ah, Huh. And thing with Brady's cult. Is Ground Kowski coming back? Or is he? Yeah, I think grounds coming back on he said he's coming back. Yeah. So now we have big target on our backs. A lot of players coming back. We started to talk about this a little earl everything we had on and the injuries and what can we expected these players? Carson Looks Great and the Ota's and the drills. You see him out there. He's not getting hit yet, but he looks like he's moving fine. HMM. You see the video the other day? He liked through a seventy year yeah, on the part of the money. Yeah, James, think he said I'll hit you on the day and then the end zone, and it right in the middle of the day, on the end, in the ends. I hope you back. Only I had an on like that. Yeah, you wouldn't be sitting here with me now. Well, I'm only five a, so I probably still would be sitting here with you. Drew brees is only five too, isn't he? Yea. Yeah, right, dumb flutie. The are you got? Don't goody's Lord closer? Yes, so we got Carson coming back, Jason Peters come MMM toor nixt coming then Darren sproles coming back, my ghosts, Chris Maragos. There's somebody else. Well, we talked about Timmy Juran again, rights turn again yet and they restructured that contract. You never heard how he got hurt? Nope. So I think my theories he was doing something he shouldn't have been doing, and so the restructuring the contract is book you. You this injuries. On you, on you. Yes, we would still like you to be a part of the team. But because of this, sounds like he may not play this year or, if he does, yeah, till he might be the what's in November? You can people on the on the publicly. Yes, yes, they could come off in November. But we got some people to fill the whole mm in the offseason. We got not a we got Bennett, Michael Bennett. I think the way they rotate players to should be good. Yes, it's the thing about journey and is he never put up a stink about the contract either. Now that's what that's even more you know, quote unquote evidence that, yeah, he did this on his own type of deal. Yeah, and it's a shame because he was a productive player force. You know, I kind of wore down over the season. I don't know if he's not used to playing the number of snaps that he did or whatever, but he wore down a little. He was a little invisible. She'll always say late in the season, if in the maybe the first game of the playoffs. But you know, he he was there force Minnesota and in the New England game and you know he's got a snaps in. He got you know, got a little. You know he was he was mixing it up in there, but we need we need to know what's going on with him. We need to have a player that was a more consistent production out of them and I think out of all those players that were interested other than Carson Wentz, take him off the table because he's in a league by itself. I think the biggest thing that we need to be concerned with his Jordan Hicks or Nick's. Yeah, because he is yet to play a full sixteen. He was injured in his college career. I don't think he played. He missed whole season college. His was it his last year? He missed the whole season a year before. I thought was his junior years, junior year. So he's got the injury history. He's a fantastic talent when he's on the fields. Great meal there. Yeah, he's a great leader for the linebacker. Yep, he's the quarterback at the defense. He needs to be there. The question is, can he be there all sixteen? Now they were very capable of filling his shoes during the during the season. They got the job done, they got they got the ring, but I would much prefer seeing him out there for all sixteen games. I mean a guy he can cover a tight end, you can cover a running back goes sideline, the sideline, he can wrap and stick and tackle. He brings a guy down first contact. He's what you need in today's line backup. But I need to have them out. They're all sixteen games and I think that is a humongous question mark going into the season. And the type it he's getting. I mean like serious injuries this guy's getting. I hate to say,...

...but eventually one of them might be a career and there the way he was got. This guy goes, they'd I want to see him out there for the full season alongside Bradham. HMM. We was worried. I was worried to working to each side, Brad and I, and I think that's puzzly those two together their concerns with Hicks. Yeah, and they signed a couple yeah, linebackers. I'll season this kid, Corey Nelson from Denver, and as one of them goes down with a yeah, yeah, I don't know that he was going to give I was he seemed like more special, specially to warrow was going to be. But Corey Nelson, the kid that they brought from Denver, sounds like he's gonna get some significant prime time. MMM, got rid of kendricks finally. So that that was you say? That was with disdaining your voice. So like finally he's gone. Each he just never he never got to his potential. That I like to look at his brother. Yeah, Minnesota's like why could we get that Kendrick? We always seem to get the wrong brother correct right, regardless of the sport. Yeah, except when we had rich and Ron Sutter for the flyer. Right, we had the twins. Yes, cover down. Yeah, I agree. Kendricks did not play to his full capability and I hated the drama with him after each season. But I think he was at minimum serviceable. Yeah, he was. You know, when we have said DC was it melight, he wasn't plays every series, but he shows you that they got by, like he's would you flash here and there. But he wasn't. He wasn't a consistently really solid player. He was serviceable. He was a body to put out there and I you know, I think he I guess treaded water, held his own, whatever you want to call it, but he wasn't anything spectacular. I agree with that and I hated the drama every offseason. is He staying. Is he going just be done with it? Yeah, and in if that's the case, yes, I agree with the the stain finally place the finally, yes, just so that we don't have to listen to it anymore. But I was okay if he had stayed another year or two. We can agree at this A. Yeah, plus I HAVE HIS JERSEY. So so they're they're come. It's another jersey. Another yeah, he did another Jersey the closet. That's collecting dust. Yeah, with the TEO and the Freddie, Mitchell, Joan, Jackson, Joan Brown do s Daley Trot Trot. See, I was always a defense guy. Yes, always looked for Defensive Jersey. Yep, so I Dawkins, obviously. Yeah, yeah, I got the Dawkins, but then I got a little excited. If the fourth and twenty six game I went out, I got a Freddie Jersey. I wouldn't got a Freddie Jersey. I think I wore it three times to where hi overt each time you woard. I had a Teo Jersey for some reason. I got it this year on Jackson, Jerrys and a. Why am I and these guys are killing me now. So back in the defense though I did get a ways ters. Okay, I'm expecting to get a lot of use out of that. Yeah, I hope so. Get a lot of use to thatpen. The player coming back from injury I'm most interested in seeing what they do with is Darren sprowls. Yes, we were having a conversation on the fourth with family and friends, with the running backs that we have now, the JAII. He's going to be the main guy, yes, but I don't think you're going to see him getting thirty carries a game. No, just because of the knee issue. Reason and and you see he signed. There's no reason to give him that many. He signed with drew Rosenhouse. So contract that contract year. He's going to be looking for big dollars. Next question I want to see. I see him out there doing a push elps. Happens drive away? I want to see how they rotate clement. I really like to back in the beginning of the season last year when we were going through the rosters and going an offseason, I said I'd rather see this on drafted kid make the roster above pump free. So now we're going to start here and pump frees coming back pump free was great spect a lot out of pump free. I'm not on a pump free bad wagon. I don't. I didn't see anything of him in exhibition. I think it was lucky that he got that injury. Yeah, year said that they could put them on the list and not have to carry him on the roster the yearlong like hamstring. And Yeah, I'm with you there. I was not a big pumper fan through training camp and into the season and I too am glad that he got that injury. I was so pleasantly surprised or Corey Clement the way he and I mean how does that guy go undrafted, you know, and I mean he just he came in, he was so productive, especially when he started really getting into the system, acclimated to the system, understand and everything that was going on. I...

...mean he was he was so fun to watch play. You know, he had a real enthusiasm about the way he played. He rarely went down on first contact, he almost always gained positive yards, never went backwards, rarely dropped the ball with rarely to exactly and I don't think he really fumbled the ball whole lot and he was just he was so fun to watch and so productive. And how does a player like that go on Dray? I mean, I know he what and it wait. So I'm sorry. He played at Wisconstant it was. It was so matter like he was at a school to hiding. Know you a rock somewhere with known from pump it down good running. That yes, and that this kid goes on drafted. I didn't get it and I'm glad he turned out coming here and, you know, playing for us, because I think he's got a long, bright future ahead of them and he he may see himself, depending on how a JAII works out, he may see himself as a number one running back here some day. My Dad compared him to Westbrook. I said, I'm not going after all, I'm not going out there now, but I guess because it just how he's built, similar in his style and catching the ball out of the backfield. But I was like yeah, that I don't know if I'm going there yet. I've had this conversation with with DJ on occasion. Dj His favorite player all time was Westbrook. Okay, and and I say I say this about Westbrook, he regardless of where on the field they were, he was a threat to score every time he touched the ball, and you can't say that about very many players. Whether it was a kick return, punt return, pass or run, he was a threat to score every time he touched the ball. He was that exciting of a player. I missed him field in the PUNTS. Yeah, when I say, I'm yeah, guy's we can't risk him anymore. lets get him out a punt return game. Yep. And so, for that reason I'm not willing to go that far with Clement yet. He's a lot of fun to watch, but I don't think he's seen that category yet. Think small would go on. Finally, I got you should keep saying finally makes it sound like I don't like these guys. I think he's going to be the odd man out. They drafted a couple of could yes, they did. He could be, you know, I don't want to say you can never have too many running backs, but he no, I think they might just find it, because I definitely think Paul freeze out. I see. I think he's got another year. You Do? I think they give him another year. I think he's one of those guys at Howie. You know he was a howie pick. He wants to give him a shot. True, he's younger. Yeah, I don't know how bad the injury was last year. I'd love it some inside that by the mids Ober he was fine. Yeah, you mentioned sprawls coming back. I am curiously and you mentioned you're curious to see how they're going to use them. I am to I think he's going to be he's going to have a limited role. He's older, he's still fast. There's no question he still fast. He's not down sprawls of eight years ago, but he's still fast. I think he's going to be used in the return game. Yeah, that's what I'm expect. Yes, and I think he will be a third down specialist, especially if they're looking at maybe a third in mid range to a long third down. You know, because he is he's tough to bring down an open space, get him the ball out the flat and, you know, maybe put a blocker or two in front of him and see if you can get you that first down. Everybody's going to know he's getting the ball. You know. That's how about you put him, clement out there in a little sure wish bone action. Sure, same time, a little read option or something. But I've been putting the weapons on the field. All right, it's yes, it's going to be a telegraph. Yes, he's getting the ball, but you know, if you execute correctly, you can still pick up that yardage that you need. Yet it defense is there to do their job too, but if you execute the way you're supposed to execute, you can still get the first down. With I don't see him playing much at all, either as a d cool, maybe as a decoy or just to keep the defense honest on occasion, but I really don't see him playing much on first or second down at all because of the injury that he sustained and his age. You know, he's not it. He's never been at between the tack ill type of now he's always trying to get a get the outside the corner. We see him, he's the guy that would go into the pile of guys and just the other side right just are here, because he's, you know, small, five foot nothing, and he's like where is? He gives guys like us hope. Yeah, although he's yeah, my kneeeser, yeah, yeah, all my best day. I was never even half his face as he was probably do it for for up those steps and on the forty, those three steps, three...

...steps. Yeah, but yeah, I'm curious to see how they're going to use him. Also, I think he still has when it comes to the return game. I think he's going to be a very productive player in the return game. I think he's still going to be dangerous back there, especially if you know, in the right position where he you know it's a short punt, or if it's a point where to the punter that kicks his coverage, that type of deal. I think he can still be a threat to maybe not score, but get your big big yard at cheer and I'll Um anxious to see see how well he does. Also that the I think the one guy we're forgetting is is the old guy on the line, Peter Jason Peters. Yeah, I because I think they did. I think they filled that spot admirably with with big vig yeah, and it's to be nice to see him come back and if he can play at the level he's played in, but I think they've showed that they can do it without them. So that that's the question. Now what do you do? Do you put big V back as a as a sob or if Peter's is healthy, you're playing, but you got to play Pete Peters. I agree, and it's nothing else. It's calls it a money offensive line is in a position where they rotate guys. No, it's not. No, it's not. Now it's unproductive. It's counterproductive, I should say, to rotates some big V's got to be back to right the pine, and I mean that's a kick in a pants for him. You know, if that happens, he's got a super bowl ring. He does. How old the see? He's still fairly young, right, was he's not twenty five yet, is he? He might be mid twenties. I've gotten you. He's been here for is this his last season with us? Maybe on his roar here and his rookie contract that he's stole in his rookie count. Okay, so figure he's twenty five, maybe twenty six if he didn't come out at all. Yeah, I think. Yeah, maybe you just wait your turn. Let Peters have his one year, one more your go response song. It's right, a strong sirement to or correct right, and then, yeah, be ready to take the spot next year. And but let's say that that contracting sign was for two years, but it was. This is the second year of that two years. Right. So yeah, so, yeah, let Peters have his swan song and then go out. Hopefully, want to repeat his hall theme. Ye, career, the end of his whole fame career. Yes, and I got the I got the ten minute warning. Okay, so I want to start getting into some of the random topics. Okay, just to be stuff. Sure, Hall of fame. We're going. Yeah, what do you think about that? I can't wait, Teo piece to think I am too, but I mean, the guy has been about ego his entire career and he's been a diva. Yes, entire career. Spotlight. Where is it? Let me have it. I mean he was a there's no doubt he was a great wide receiver. He deserves to be in the hall. Yes, my definitely deserves to you know, numbers wives. He deserves to be in the hall and he he you know if it was for selfish reasons or not, he did everything he could to get back to that super bowl for us and he was incredibly productive in that Super Bowl. Concerning the guy at a busted ankle a month before he you know, there's no denying what he did for us in that Super Bowl. It's a shame he didn't score because I think if he scores a touchdown we might win that thing. But what he's doing is, you know, it's a trying to stick it to the NFL, I guess, a diva thing. It's a it's an ego thing for him. But your you're screw in your face, right. You're just kind of yes, yeah, he's he's having no, no, no ceremony. You can make it to yeah, right, it's free. It's the same day. The public the same day. I'll be at this. I'll be at the really all swearing right. Yeah, it just kind of annoyed because it's it's a great class going in. Yeah, but just to see him up there and see we have to say, HMM, I think it any and it's a changer thing to see how they do it like that when they've elected people that passed away, the family member come. I'm just HMM, say it. Make a few statements with with is somebody still going to get up and represent the Oh, and that's a good call speech for that. Just on to the next sadly, I think this is a decision he's going to regret. He may not for like ten years, but he's going to regret this decision. Yeah, and when he's on his deathbed he's going to be like, damn, I should have I should have gone again. I wonder what the other guys are thinking too, like the other the existing hall famers and classics going in like at apparently it's a pretty plight nic group. When all they all get together, they get their gold jackets on and publicly I get any kind of shunned now and I in public,...

I think they would all say the right thing, but if you get them behind closed doors, off the record, I think they would say he's being an ass. Yeah, it's a miss. He's not one of us. He didn't want to be one of us. They so he doesn't need and isn't it all about? Because he didn't get in on the first round, the first but I think that's part of it. It's, like you said, he's just a divas something. Yeah, he's got some type of bug up his ass. Yeah, it's a shame because I really think he's going to live to regret this decision. All right, you got five minutes. Favorite host guests. HMM, show. What are your favorite one of your favorite moments over past year that we've been dealing this I gotta say. But yeah, I gotta say, thinking over the year, I gotta say I'm not I can't say ones more of a favorite over to the other. But that my two favorite shows, probably and food, involved food and alcohol.

You kind of broke the steal we did. You pulled back a little little baseball or football. So for the next hour there's going to be no sports. Okay, we may touch on a little bit, little bit, I got a couple topics I was going to get into that we'd have the time. And actually, the people on the on the days here mean, Dick, do you get on me? Tattoos right, and I felt, I thought, John Be Perfect on in tattoos. Da, I do see. What are your thoughts on the Eagles Tattoo? Sorry, I'm derail on your whole terrible, terrible. I don't think you need to get do I just like I used not you. They go straight and I guess knock them off. You haven't an Eagles Tattoo? Jeff know I got those hard and the Band Eagles Tattoo. He has heart with I'm Henley space. Yeah, Don Henley, it's my lower back. He has a heart with Steve and it does well. I get that that is but everybody understands that's locker room high jinks. For those of you that don't know where. So I'm sitting at my name, Steve. I'm sitting here with Jim Marcus from Sandy, but first that I'm sitting with John Crayton from two hundred and fifty five, and before we do the cracked bell crew in our one year anniversary and recap some of our favorite moments, kind of wanted to talk about how we got here. So it's an interesting story, John. You actually first off, I started off. I had a a Web page like two years ago and John wrote like two articles for us and we kind of disbanded and kind of went our own way and then John was like, I kind of have the Itch, I still want to keep doing doing it. So John, the trailblazer that he is, and he decided to start his own. You started your own website. Two one hundred and fifty five. Two one five, spool on five sports. I mean yes, sir. And how do we get here? So for it took ninety five, frank. Yeah, like I came right down the BUOLEVARD. That's a cute, cute joke. Basically, how it happened was my my partner, frank, and I decided to start the website, like you said, Steve, and you know we needed guys to write for us. Obviously frank and I were doing a lot of right and for the first maybe a month and a half, you know, we knew that we weren't going to be able to keep that up. So we decided to reach out to some friends, guys that we knew it, we're passionate about the sports or whatever, and ask them to they want the right with us. Jimmy Marcus was volunteered to write hockey force. You didn't you have a choice. I was a hockey guy. I actually sudden. I actually didn't even know the great story. The best part of the story was we were doing a teddy bear drive and it's my wife and Jimmy's wife knew each other, but I didn't know Jimmy. So I actually went over Jimmy's house to pick some teddy bears up, first time I've ever met him. Found out he like Talky, told him he was going to write hockey force. That was it. I think there's a hockey game went when the Kate might even have been once I saw he was, he was blowed. I heard it was. It was do you like hockey? And you were like yes, yes, I do like hockey. You were like cool, we need a hockey guy. You're it. Yeah, it was it and now you're not. Hockey Guy. Was the hockey guy. He wasn't volunteered, he was volt old. That's how that works. So that's Jimmy came on. Is Our hockey guy. We had a one or two guys that were scheduled to be each sports coverage. You know, obviously Steve came on, D came on. We started to build our roster two on five sports. I'm kind of a diva though, Time Rooney. Yes, kind of a diva. It's the guy to eat cheese girls with a fork, get knife hid and kind of a day. I'm the guy who breaks down ribs, just the medium. I can't have a fork and knife. I won't do it. I won't do it. There's no shot we're getting through any of this time. We been over there and now these keeps in my face. Always said, but as aggressive to isn't what John reachs out to me was like I kind of have a small idea for you. You're going to do like I might have you do occasional basketball, and I'm like, I'm full in. I hate, I hate, I hate. Yeah, and then it was just hey, the article, I have to eat article now worked. It worked and like, like we said, we were building a pretty good roster and, you know, for for a small little operation that we were, you know we were we were doing really well, we were getting a lot of hits on a website. We're doing really well. Frank and I were fortunate enough to have our own show at ten and kind of like where the broadcast side of two five sports got started. And the most important thing to frank and I were how do we get how do we compensate you guys for the hard work that you're doing, for all the writing, you know, pumping the website out, doing all that, and we knew that if we stayed at...

...six ten, it was going to be tough because production fee wise, you know, scheduling wise, it was going to be tough to get everybody on our show and then possibly your own show there. So we'd reached out to Marcus from wildfire on some unrelated stuff and we kept in talk to we got back and forth or whatever, and we had one conversation where Marcus say, listen, you know, we've been hearing a lot about you guys. Would you be interested in bringing your show to us. It's all today and everything worked out. Long Story Short, we went over there and that was what gave us the ability to help put all you guys in place to do two things that you're doing now. So you know obviously, production fee wise and growth wise and everything that they were offering. It was a no brainer to go over there so real could just real quickly. So we were building two hundred five sports inside the walls of wildfire and at one point when small ball jumped on what us, we had seven live shows that were acting as two hundred five sports, which was almost half of the sport shows if they had there at the time. So you pulled back the curtain. You gave like the boring like I'm going to get the exciting I'm going to give the exciting side. He met up the Kadio Donald's, right. You Remember this Katy o Donald's meeting, and we got like there was it was listen, I need you to show up a Kadio Donald's. I got a text. It was like very cryptic, like I had to have my wife look at it twice. So like does he want me to be there or not, because I don't know what this means. It said twelve o'clock Katio Donald's. I'm like what, what does that mean? Like, I don't know what he's is. I'm just giving you the time and where I'm at. That's all that was. Yeah, like getting time with that P is of a life check in. Like, I don't know what he's doing here. So The Times cryptically broke it down and I showed up and there's twelve guys I don't know and my man goes. Some of you a meaning for the first time. Some of you had known forever, but we're all in this together. I'm what does that mean? Uh Huh, it's like the brain ars any questions now that somebody's heading herd. We literally got a Hitd like a sheet of paper, like I remember looking at it and like I read fast. I skimmed down and I remember looking at like the faces across the table. It was like, we're all getting podcasts. What's kind of we're all going to do our own shows. And then it was kind of like you had. It was like we're going to jockey for WHO's going to be on the roster with us. It was like trying to think out who what here. It comes, you know where it's gonna where you're going with this. Yeah, so we had a group text message and it was like we're all getting our own podcast. The guys that were at the meeting you're going to have their own shows, and John's trying to figure out who's going to do what show, and I remember I specifically reached I said in the time, I should have second screenshot at it. I said, Jim Marcus, you and I should do a show together. I think it would be awesome, and my man just blew right past it. And then I remember, like really like a couple months later, when it shows are all established, we put together our own teams and kind of worked it out. I asked you about it, like I didn't even see it. I didn't. That was I didn't and like I thought even more hurt when you told me that, like I would have been like more appreciatively. They were like my way thinks your Dick, so I can't hang out with you like that would have been so much better for me. I don't know that we would have gotten much sports talked up now. Oh No, I'm very first meeting at the FOP, that the Junieta Frankfort North ballsyball sting started. Was a class started and I never met. It doesn't started and I'm finally that that's what we did, but I was we wouldn't gotten sports. I was only brought in because he couldn't handle you by himself. There's too many north guys and there's too many North Guy. There was only one of us, but that's that out enough. Want enough. What's do much? It's they're like a group. When he comes in and it's only one guy, it's brutal awful. So stick to he goat number today, though. Yeah, I don't know a lot of number the day. There's a lot of Brian Ready. You can't handle Brian Ready. He said it, want to be in. Here's it. Here's a quick Brian Ready Story. Right. So me and Brian went to school together. Obviously, Stephen All, yes, the last thing I said to Brian Ready when I saw him twenty years ago was fucking Brian Ready. The first thing I said to him today, twenty years later, same exact phrase, fucking Bryan Man Ready. That's the kind of Guy Brian Ready is. Just to let you guys know, nothing changes, nothing. He literally looks exactly the same, but with a beard. Yeah, what air? That's it. I don't know how it happened. Yeah, you wig the same as twelve grade. I don't know how that happened. Earlier in a message that facebook said I don't look at any different. I'm exactly the same way I was first yeah, which was bad, backed in, but not to this day. It's good. In ninth grade, would your six foot forward? Two hundred and forty dad bodies good, Dad Butt? Is it in a that grade it's like, listen, like most kids are like Hey, can I borrow your your chemistry at Homework. I was like ready, I need you to get me beer, like, honestly, we need beer ninth grade. So thanks, we go here. We are. Are here, we are. What is in line going forward from two, one hundred and five from wildfire sports. So the good thing was when we finally decided to merge wildfire radio, two hund five sports on Wi fire radio emerged. They brought on on the new wildfire sports. They had while our sports in place before we got there, but nobody was really running. It wasn't all...

...the shows that were under that banner. We're kind of acting on their own. So we put everything together we got everybody kind of like inline and put everybody in the same direction. So now you know, we're almost ten months now, eleven, about ten months since since we took over wildfire. It's I mean it's a speedy freight train. You guys can see it. You know the the website, you know the the podcast. were up to Justin what are we up to? About twenty some less how many? How many sports shows we have? Yeah, twenty two sports shows. We had about nine or ten when we took over. Yeah, and through wildfire now there's like what, almost sixty shows? Yeah, I mean we're yeah, we're like fifty some shows in alltogether wildfire. You know, in the and the the overall downloads, to the exposure that we have, you know, not just locally but now nationally, like we have syndicated shows all over the place. We actually mean, frank just found out we have a group of listeners at a in a an army base, I think, in Afghanistan, Nice, which is insane. We Frankie got an email that they listen to us and cracked bell crow is huge in Turkey. It's lessen. Our our craft is Turke in Turkey. Is Insane. But yeah, so like the you know, these spasure look at our twitter files. It's massive. I think we were Brazil. We had some sell some listeners in Brazil. Yeah, and we comes out of nowhere. If you're right, you know, we actually we have more listeners in D seat and we have in Jersey and our station is in Jersey. That's disgusting. Yeah, but whatever. But yeah, so you know, we're on the we're on the path to the kind of take an over guys, and we have we have the biggest podcast festival coming up at the end of July. Podcast movement, myself, Justin Marcus and all the guys, you're going to be there pushing the brain. We got the box. Now that you know, the broadcast in a box that we're offering out there. Now that we're going to let's really have a big end of the public. You know, we're going to reveal that to the public, like a verty much for the first time that that day or that week. So you know, that's that's our first sent us a hint of what the box is. Justin. Could do that if you want. That's his that's his realm. If you want Justin to pop in there and let you know what's The box? Justin? It's basically a portable radio station in something that's the size of a laptop. So you can have this box. So A cell phone? No, no, a cell phone, so I'll walk man. No, the cell phone can't produce a live stream while we'recording at the same time. Oh so you mean like like if we're going to podcast, we can hold the box and it has a microphone at the end of it. No, there's actually seen something similar to this. But no. Imagine, who thee. Imagine all of this gear and being able to pack it into one device, the laptop, the mixer, the head Jack, the focus right. Imagine putting it all into one piece of equipment and being able to run a broadcast with double the amount of people here at awful one device. Nice. That's look at you, guys. Look at it's like, and I'm going to leave that. Don't speak for the next thirty seconds. Let it so, essentially, they have that. So, with with what Justin just said, you can also have it where people can use it as their emergency broadcast system as well. So like they can, they can sell it to like, I don't know, the Navy or something, or they can sell at the people that get people rent it and that'll be your emergency broadcast system as well. He said, is that the box is literally I mean it's, you know, eight inches by whatever, in nine inch by whatever. It's a small little piece of equipment and we're going to we're going to release that to the public the first time at this podcast movement, which is the biggest podcast of convention going and everybody's it's all going to be the convention center in Philly at the end of a month. So we're all going to converge on that so that on top of the exposure, I mean the website is getting like in two thousand and seventeen total. The website had three hundred twenty three thou views. We're already almost at a million and it's only July. Yeah, we got a lot more writers crank and stuff out. I mean they're up tot like I got think we have thirty two people right and force. We just got credentialed in Indianapolis for Indy five hundred races. One of our indie racers just text me she got credential for two upcoming indie races. I mean it's it's insane, like these are people that don't even aren't even here, that are writing for wildfire. They're getting credential in some of the biggest markets that they can be. There's a show in Sacramento, like I follow them on like it's we have Sacramento, we have Cleveland, we have Michigan, we have Delaware and one other one that we just did. I forget the other one we just did, but it's it's all over the place. And now the next step in our eyes would be franchising. So you could have, you know, Wildfire Kansas City, wildfire tech whatever. So that's what this box can do. So now somebody who wants to start a podcast company can rent the spot from us, take it, start their own business there and then we can go and say, all right, well, you're going to be wildfire Houston based off on our equipment, and now we're franchising. You know I mean. So that's the next...

...step that hopefully we're working towards and this podcast festival is what's going to get us there. And along the lines of that, like the community of it, like the fact that, you know, anybody can start a podcast anyway. PODCASTS are obviously growing. More people are listening to podcast and they are listening to regular radio. One of my favorite things about all this has been like the community sense of it. Yeah, we're like we've made friends with other shows and like we've done a good job, like, I think, kind of paralleling crossing over. Like I've done your show a couple times. You called in the ours and like your cold comment, or with Austin. Same thing with you guys. I've done your show and you've come at it all mores and that I liked. It's not just sports to right. You got food shows and music shows and we company that we got in on Saturdays some days and the drunk UNK UNK's podcast. Those guys are wow. Yeah, it's fun just crossing over with them and you see what's going on the show that comes on after us. They did I can't think of their name right now, but one of the coolest things I've heard was like they're they're claimed the famous day. They do a show and they design cleats for football player. Yeah, because I feel like it's the show, because I feel like, yeah, I got to give the name and I don't want to incorrectly know. Like the first show that they did there, they had like a guy who just got drafted by the steelers. He's in the parking lots. Were leaving it like my man's doing. Like he's talking about cleats, like they're designing cleats. Like that's and like you guys at Santa the first you brought of the guy that does the the chef for the chef for the eagles. Yeah, like that's a one of my favorite podcast episodes of all time. That was fun. Like it's so like outside of the box. It's unique and it's not just the same stuff that you talked about every week. Like I love that kind of stuff and I us just that translates when we do our shows. Gives us the opportunity to to like reach out. Like Jay, I grew up in the same neighbor and I haven't talked to him been probably thirty years even, and I saw he had his whiskey start out of his business. I reached out to when I said any more, come on, it's my hand. So that my show bis all is damns me. Maybe some time to talk about your whiskey. You know. Of course we got some samples, which was nice. I think you guys did it just because you want to get dropped. It was an early morning one. It'd be they we didn't get that drunk. That means nothing. But the beautiful part about wifiing, like you guys said, branching out to not only sports, is so when we were at six ten, it was nice when we would reach out to somebody and say, Hey, you want to come to our show? We're on six and ten ESPN. So old you to do is say those four letters and people like okay, cool. But what hampered you there was you couldn't have of people from my pay on there. You couldn't like because there was compete clause and stuff like that. Right. So you go to wildfire and in the beginning we would reach out and people like Oh, what's wildfire, and you would tell him like okay, sure, I'll do your show. But now, when you reach out and you say, Hey, you know, we're cracked bell crew wildfire rat of people like okay, yeah, like you know, they know who you are. You got we got house Thomas One, we got like d line them just got a spot on ninety seventy five. And don't be don't kid yourself that they didn't hear her doing her show with us. So now she got a shot at ninety seventy five. You don't mean like Tyler's Olie was a producer there. He wants to do a show wildfire. Now he's doing stuff on ninety seventy five. So like when you reach out, like you got more titis, you got Kevin and Mike, you know, Mike Clon and all like there's names that are doing house like there's need. Like when I just reached out to an athlete, x athlete. He wants to do the show. He can't do anything yet because he's under a compete clause right now. But once I told him who's doing shows there, he was like all right, yeah, well, we'll hook up, you know, once this compete clauses over whatever. Now the wildfire name carries weight. It's no longer just like a podcast company. It's a media network. We got to handle it as a media network. Million any but to finish off on that note, because we still have to do the cracked bell crew side of us. Because to finish up on that note, the wildfire name carry right. You contributed into that. I contributed that. You can shibut. Yeah, it's that feels good. Yeah, yeah, all kind of contributed to building something that's going to be much figger than what we all imagine. There what we're doing now. Absolutely, you're just a small fish in the pond, but like we can see the growth, we can see what it's becoming, and it's all for listen, you guys always give you guys do and then, like all, can decide. You guys do send a lot of kind words my way and all that stuff, and and the only thing that I can say is it we just gave you guys the platform. It took everybody from those shows to take it and run with it. I didn't know how successful guys are going to be. A lot of guys were doing this for the very first time, do you know what I mean? We're all sports fans, but you don't know what's going to happen when you get behind these mics. But the fact that every single show, even the ones that aren't with us anymore, that just decided they couldn't do it anymore, we're doing really well and building for themselves. I didn't do that. I just gave you guys a platform and you took it, and it is, like I told Steve on the phone not too long ago, like it does make me proud because I'm like, all right, look, these guys are legitimately building something and it took you guys to do it, and it's just we wouldn't be anywhere, we wouldn't be where we were as wildfire if if it wasn't for the shows. So it's you guys are are kicking as we just hope that it keeps up and on that hope. It's been fun. Dude. Thank you, guys, for always being kind to us and letting US cross over with you and vice versa. Thanks for letting to share a birthday party to...

...yeah, absolutely, we all started seeing time. Yea, thank you been. Thank you been forgetting my soda and for having a great ear of them. And that's really here. Take a quick break and then we come back. We'll do I will do the cracked up crow. So we'll do.
