Will Johnny -- -- make it as an NFL quarter. Yes indeed it's fantastic he's amazing. And -- got a lot to learn. As a as a quarterback -- you look at him this year he'll probably win the Heisman again. And he's that good he's not a finished product and you see some of these guys in the NFL. Pool already. Aren't as good as is -- has yet to be fun. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Do your job the next day when you're at a camp -- in a phone that does not fall on on innings and I thought our -- and Obama maybe both mr.

My junior quarterbacks you get all the good look at it's a lot of beautiful. Currencies AJ do well. You're looking live -- AJ McCarron -- for a I don't I don't know that he's got the game -- gonna translate to the NFL I know it's moving more more towards allowing some more running. At some of the things that he does well he's six foot one there. -- he's not a particularly accurate passer I don't know that I saw him. Is being a great NFL player characters -- -- -- and Manuel hoped that he -- at 2 o'clock. Johnny about well. There's dramatic rise to leave. The factory.

Who's the mayor who had absolutely awful for for children mayor of Chicago I think it was it was something like that well. It was in Cincinnati. Was cagey. Cagey throw one out. Within our Robinson marital laws it will Denard Robinson Denard Robinson -- Denard -- here or you're also thinking of the Cincinnati manner OK so those two -- -- kind of confusing the two of them right. The Cincinnati mayor had a disastrous first pitch and Denard Robinson was awful. Then that what Bill Russell threw one the Russell Bennett if you are. John Wall and it had a horrible one actually has an average of great athletes that some of basketball players if they'll. To me what's worse is that -- right it's Denard Robinson. He threw a football -- with -- back right. And he couldn't throw baseball was really strange one does kind of translate to the other. I never lose doing it. Earners. Thing. Submarine in the program.

Yeah hard violent swing. Our home run derby guy. Or are you mean. When -- under. If I didn't have kids probably watch a fair amount does nothing else on tonight but. I'll probably watch non. Like tonight I'll probably watch dale turner on. Those things that you -- out of what you guys that are difficult to convince my wife. That we're going to watch some of the home run. But that's a hard argument to win like I can always winning a let's watch that team let's watch this is what's that wanna watch this it's important for workers wanna watch it. -- in hand I really wanna watch the home run derby here and say.

Yeah yeah always writing by AT&T you're correct New York City really had to play some at bats I don't know. I'm guessing I don't like -- really electrical. Uses back in your group hello. -- -- can happen. That's like give it if the guy has a couple of outs in a row but then he gets into a groove he's going to be back in the New York group well David Wright proceeded right -- he's right or Robinson you know. Tell me you don't you don't like yeah this is it. Iran that if your brother I think you -- Susan starts thing Donald got a mild left soon as he starts -- an amount half -- left a couple of out.

And I feel like an Asia think it's pretty. Pretty entertaining I guess after Bruce terrible last year that's the guy we know we was questions of some movement -- riddle he was the one. It's -- -- Scenes stuff -- just terrible. I thought he was I thought he ruined the espy's last about it was not in any way entertaining. And after a couple of really good years with Seth Meyers it was really noticeable. How bad it was last year and I know that a lot of people make fun on the espy's kind of manufactured. But it usually is usually gives you a couple of pretty good moments. Member first of all that they've done really good -- Com. -- like nice moments like nice awards like long time service award honoring people they did the -- a few years ago for the two guys after the two olympians John Carlos and like on the promise yes it would be I would drop their heads and out but that was an amazing night and really amazing thing that they've done.
