Jonny Gomes is a pretty good this polar opposite of -- Yes that's a good one he's a pretty good polar opposite yeah early unheralded guy used likes to talk baseball and you just. -- sudden there was a Joseph Hagerty tweed this couple weeks ago and said I didn't realize until watching him all year long how much fun the full Jonny Gomes experiences. It's not true but he's under appreciated until you watch him every day you wouldn't get it at all. -- out all that when he was signed in November I was doing what he's signing in popular in November like this usually -- kind January February. -- -- like credit me he fits exactly what you wanted what they needed he's done everything we thought he would then when we got. The Seattle Seahawks played their first pre season game a couple days ago and draw forty rating. A forty rating 40% of people in Seattle were watching the Seahawks play in the pre season. So clearly there's some fervor for the Seahawks in Seattle with -- they're legit Super Bowl contender to be -- the other 60% -- watching the -- that -- I just -- -- and -- we're -- push away from the Mike and his -- they're pretty good man they're pretty -- -- likely -- -- what was that like it was a delicious it was a dream come true -- it was like -- it was like -- it was like you seduced by Pete -- it was like being in candy land and it was likely it was that -- now it was never seduced by Pete Carroll. Although I guess by the end I feel better about him than I did at the beginning. Completely seduced by Russell Wilson yes they are legit Super Bowl contender they are few seconds away from go to the NFC championship game a year ago they're certainly it's capable of beating San Francisco or Atlanta. Or any of the good teams in the NFC coming Iran horse -- a blight ran back. Marshall when march on its on the team's ticket tackle these so I sort of a back calling yet if you sports science is pretty from the watched these crazy. -- everybody agrees our -- he's Smart he's real weird guy there. Well. Yes I am the NFL is going to start testing former players for each -- levels to get a baseline of each DH for current players. How do you feel about. HGH testing in the NFL British Tony Gonzales count right now is he a former player term playing like he's not playing yet but he's back on our roster. This account is current or former club like that based on. I'd like that baseline that's that's done immediately the stupid question there is an already huge testing in the -- you -- the story -- -- so that when -- -- when they reached their. CBA agreement. They agreed to put HGH testing and that was. How long ago. You're two years ago now it's never actually been put it. They're saying they wonder why exactly one of the big one of the big sticking points. Is that they want Roger Goodell the players want Roger Goodell removed as the and as is typical of Roger Goodell he says no because he's such a medical maniacal insane person that everything is all about him so he is a note that over and over. That's a -- with a baseball is before football. And we list everyone talks about this everyone keeps saying it the double standard the football player gets operates GH home. Four days four weeks off you come back nothing ever happened but in baseball. -- -- based on Jason Grimsley test positive again the start of the investigations. He's the most important player in baseball history jewels and dreams of branded for life nevermind that the defense the player of the year got -- not to worry about that. Three. We have to the question by the weather no you did not it was a question how do you feel about -- -- we tell I feel like they really need HGH testing in the NFL but I think -- everyone in the NFL's on -- short what are we supposed to say I'm against that. Well some duels and now I don't wanna see my football players suspended for each year time. There's two monsters. A relatively monsters they are monsters and they continue to be monsters and the continued use -- Yates. If they don't like you don't untested if they get I think. Stuff. Forget the -- question I get off of the HGH and they're not as big strong fast as they are right now does that mean they can be allowed once again to hit defenseless receivers across the middle. Because of that becomes legal again I'm told -- -- do all the testing you want. Ranked number three the Tampa Bay Rays welcomed a large visitors their clubhouse the other day Joseph Maddon brought 820 foot python to the clubhouse to motivate his players did. -- is the year of the snake after all. Could a twenty foot python motivate you to play baseball. However it was the python weren't skinny jeans. That's elected that's you'd like the next step for Joba noted for his varsity jacket had an affair -- he also got dressed up for each -- -- What's the question I would -- -- would it motivate you to play today he grounded -- motivate his players could it it could a twenty foot -- motivate you to do anything when he -- -- -- to motivate me to not be in the clubhouse to. Guarantee I would not be there I would not looking at it I wouldn't advocate on animal that is not a fun thing. I think -- much rather have beer -- -- club dizzy feet or more of the pirate that he was carrying around the shoulder a couple of weeks ago at the end of it the -- -- some -- apparently -- the now I'll say that that's where you gonna get guys motivated. Parents -- if you don't you have some sort of rodent that you. Put out middle clubhouse yup -- funny I just imagine the scene in road trip Wear down green -- feeding that -- to the snake that we're on the same wave. -- back when I was. -- and today it is time to celebrate being a virgin who does the vote excuse me.

Otis Nixon I'm sure is aging terribly wherever he is like I looked a hundred when he was here. That's a tough fight that's imminent Benjamin button with -- Exactly it's going to -- that's a cute that's a good question I guess you have to look at this look at players who celebrity's.
