Up more than the Pro Bowl that's for sure let's disease engaged. Glad she Grammy night controls the collector is actually. I who suggest that really yes yes show kicked off with -- call a mediocre by duet between beyoncé at the big reveal the GC -- yet which. -- -- asked to explain JC I don't get it now.

What word out of just one and no amount considering how promising great producer and what are the case may be great talent. Just tell me -- I'm -- or just tell me what word. Well yesterday. To open the grammys did you understand I think what will have his opening whenever the opening. And by the way and that's song called drunken love she got leaked. There were three times three times yeah three times. We woke up in the kitchen saying. How the hell did this bleep happened is what they cut out. And then it was another one in verse three -- in the foyer. F -- my war hole. Slipped the panties right to the side ain't got time to take the -- off their rights and ably as well. Now yeah so I understand yeah I -- Virginia. Album we did this happen. JC one byword for best rap sung collaboration. With Justin Timberlake that's that's on you like so -- year. -- ties -- with -- I did you Edward -- call home JT electric. Power industry T. -- I talked about. -- -- This Gene -- -- who won the award for in most need of medical attention for -- controlled convulsions that would either be lord. Or Taylor Swift -- -- No he was just you lose you lost Ozzie I think his soul boy I know is that adult aussies finally -- that point of terror. Amid great news. He's been moved. -- -- Well I -- -- Brenda. Will always be among moderates gold. But the way things didn't really become. The -- he's from got to be found -- this about forgot that in The Beatles. You know I'm in the then sit in the front row two was he looking at the mornings and -- -- -- Ringo and Paul with their significant others yeah yeah yeah big night for Daft Punk Daft Punk. Album of the year. Record of the year as well so they were the big winners last night that on the French -- robot did you see pink defying death on the ropes. -- unbelievable that ought to -- it yourself at risk you see pink on the ropes I had a circus a -- thing. I thought Katy Perry -- that's that callers who sets them up and they say we need the ropes things she's -- -- -- OK you've got to deal. No you wouldn't call it really don't see a -- concert does that. As a as a part of I don't know -- brought whole thing gets that you think is it necessary. Like you know like the singers guitars. Yes that and production like probably a one performance that really stood out. Name is John Legend and he sat at the piano and play in a white talks white suit white shirt. Could actually understand everywhere he said -- -- hunter Hayes to the same as that one yeah I don't come honestly better singer countries line. This is terrible thing that's a terrible awful review what you like Campbell I don't like hammered -- like Richard -- I don't understand no deal made the point again I just played the piano and sang. Would hunter is complete -- Anchorage so why we have Andre -- replace. Just we every performance a sound number 500 days but. Here's the problem the grammys is how can anyone like. Enjoy every one -- mean not a question different musical taste to you there it's like at the end of the year ago few weeks ago a year end. And you have a guy who some music critic pick album of the year and song of the year and it's such as subjective thing you taste in music company one guy image and they try to be. You know eclectic and that number one will be eulogies the number two will be Ozzy Osbourne ago you'd be happy to be the ball. I think it's hard it's much harder to music critic of the court I think because you must if you're certain age you just rocket like -- music only the other eight under the age matters like I think it's hard like for our young people now. Now some of them like country some of them like hip hop. Some of them like metal. Now is it possible the like all free and be fair and honest critic of all three. -- -- I'm I'm -- but I mean I think it's not possible for me like Daft Punk I just to me it hasn't worked but you're like that means rolled in light I guess I -- -- -- and what that there eight impala that people. Now that I of people there robot robots and it is on it's imposter you -- it's impossible for me to like Daft Punk. So is it by and watch and could they can be perfect all the right notes and play all amstel and I think there's that too weird yet and that just him it's like. Like -- and sound like gimmicky right yeah that's I mean is Daft Punk. Eventually Daft -- we'll take off the mask -- the biz beat two guys handled the -- -- that's gonna happen is gonna run out his stuff to do it's all the notes. -- is an ultimate good yeah some Madonna performed open your heart last night at the grammys after.

Out of the public have a minute and you know not for a second you're JP not for a second -- that why am -- looking at that coffee again and trying to -- me enough yet it is perhaps. Really. A mayor of socially. Which it over to the grammys want to Margaret affluent are what got any job but I do you know I just said I think Keith Urban somehow morphed into KD Lang. Yeah he's yeah -- -- apart now these were long had a is that some might think -- have some work has to look like -- like at least with what's her face right.

That kind of thing and he does -- a dozen times he gives these inspirational speeches to his people. And each one is better than the the last team that rarely are glad they're funny or crazy there. Over the top I mean. And I think he uses. The I think Scorsese. I call Marty Marty uses the same philosophy is is the Navy SEALs anything we're doing is worth over doing this and moderation is for cowards -- It's all over the top in every way. And it's so excessive -- -- slow knots on skin color in Atlanta nursery this house with -- the white from the folks it is safe -- crystal -- The at the and I and I tweeted this element of makes any sense -- the the big -- years is Leo DiCaprio them the second big stars and -- hill. Who's annoying I wanted to punch him so glad it got late tomorrow or characters though it isn't it's an electric I hate to carry this -- but. And then the third biggest star in this movie is the -- -- the -- elude plays such a damn big part of this movie. The exit OK Marty we understand McQuay -- -- there's three or four different times.

Off the wall and there were 34 times. Well I laughed outline in on the were some funny one question first time the couple times cells -- on the movie it's great. Awesome he is good the characters -- let's -- right now. McConaughey is a great look on his great to almost steal rob writers and a run as excellent mad Max Rodman is that ruled.

With the trade deadline looming, the next few days will be defined by how teams value prospects -- and their potential long-term contributions -- against big leaguers with established track records who can address immediate needs.

A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history. On that day, a memorable brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees served as a catalyst for an epic 10-9 walkoff victory for the Red Sox over New York and indomitable closer Mariano Rivera, a game cited by many members of the 2004 team as pivotal in Boston's first championship run in 86 years.
