I'm looking forward to the first couple hours right here in the studio I'm guessing that day. And then and got caught it -- the right or wrong and then heading back to we had plans in place to be at the finish line those plans will probably fall apart they will be. -- absolutely not happen and -- we will.

Two in that wanted to do was work into is currently two -- on -- -- that. And as you know market cap for a month surely you you have seen him wanna do -- great fares well I was. Yeah -- in what you -- -- a daunting task to find the airport when you understand how easy it is to get a lot daunting task that has an airplane on engines all the planes taking off from you know in the -- it wasn't so easy but nowadays it couldn't be easier -- it's almost like being in the normal course. But he pulled cart action pretty much well as it turns out my car didn't start that they got in excellent. So you couldn't you know fuel switch you need to feel like we speculated that you never been on the plane before that accurate I have been on -- plane multiple times. You but you don't really need the money. Is she in seem interest and to what he funneled cash -- forty -- at 440.

Two good starts so -- after the obvious right now that production you said that I would have to tell you how to get. -- he said. I wasn't thinking at the time it. I was I was well shocked by the questions is expected out pilot is yeah captain austere and rush out. He's got them back and ask somebody sitting of the week is I saw those things. Ending days. -- cast a glaring national spotlight and Arizona governor Jan Brewer a Republican. Veto the bill Wednesday with a given business owners the right to reserve. Refuse rather service to gay men lesbians and other people on religious grounds. We've the governor here Greg. Senate bill 1060 cute does not address -- specific present concern. Related to religious liberty in Arizona. I've not heard of one example in Arizona. What business owners religious liberty has been violated. The DL as broadly worded. And could result in unintended. Negative consequences. That's is a huge national story big controversy over the last couple weeks Sports Illustrated reported that the NFL which are planned -- the Super -- their next year. Started actively exploring its export to section second option which is the sex and option which is Tampa. So they were and -- move -- -- -- fighters to be that's frightening here's my take it is my take on -- I'm I'm file an action filed in America voted for -- with the California. No problem. But I got a problem with this if I I have a problem with people being told McCain can't do things within their business telling people communicate -- You're -- gonna happen and I mean soon someone is gonna walk into Muslim owned bakery. That's I need genomic music cake I want you make a Mohammed I want a picture of Mohamed on it. Them big nose on big bulging -- okay. There was saying get out of my -- will YE a home that's religious grounds right somewhat and I know that's an extreme example but this is a slippery -- what it. If you own -- place if you -- restaurant and you don't want gay people TV your restaurant were married because it offends you religiously. You have the right not I think give the right not to serve I would do for my -- I probably wouldn't go there they did it. We -- separate water fountains and I would not well -- to make that ride in the back of the -- I would obviously not do well we -- Is essentially you're like you're saying. I don't -- only whites and coming to this diner but -- either religious objections -- has -- -- has anyone and brewer by the -- shoot two or three -- day Purdue that's. As as anybody had their religion. Violated she said she's seen ask for here and seen no evidence of anybody writing in earlier years I -- here here's a long list of here's the template that was set -- I think was in Oregon. Or is that if -- a wedding photographer. And you're. Catholic religious sort every don't believe in gay marriage a gay couple wants you to be harder for the wedding and you saying no it and then they get upset that you about it and and -- legal action. That happened -- -- After the Colorado why -- they just say I went to the Supreme Court. Right and they put I don't as a photographer break out of business. And and militant gay couple that could just go to the next dollar and go to the next baker. Who say you know. And you -- to get my business and I go to the next I don't have a talk again amused that I ever go either restaurant -- -- he's not a lie you don't set. Religious objection resorts believe. I'm like Obama was a year ago and I am against gay marriage -- two years whenever I went to five when I go to restaurant that that didn't. Chose not to serve. Gay couples like probably wouldn't that -- personally it's it's stupid. But hardly tell somebody that they can't do that and I like -- here's what's really frightening is the NFL getting involved in this and I'll predict this to within. Five years NFL will tell states. That they have to approve game there's. -- half to. With the whether it's through the courts here. And the courts hijacked. The issue ports in states that vote for on the referendum. That state has to approve allow legalized gay marriage or they will look at the soup global. And you do you think that's far -- probably not. Not just they're clearly -- here I mean that's that's stuff is going to happen yeah that is scary the NFL could do that or any business take out of towners you know. Say if you don't approve gay marriage and by the way in again the it was the clintons were against that Obama was against the a year and a half ago so it's a radical thing appeared in favor of traditional marriage but. It is the greatest political campaign in US political history. Gay marriage. Proponents have won the day and they will continue when the -- within five years. The NFL will be on board and not just the NFL you'll see the other. Conventions in other sports and in businesses located at that if you want important and it's not in the world you can be on board that. On board that marriage -- and if so you're -- I mean I don't hate you. And I mean what are you against gay marriage of course courts against. I mean I'm when I'm not like a finger to the wind kind ago Obama I was with Obama a year and I went left. Barack and I were in and moved shell were on the same page a year and a half ago and -- were in the trenches together fight and W buy -- a good fight.

Particularly in a year where the Red Sox have struggled while trying to integrate numerous young players into regular big league roles, accusations that Red Sox prospects are overrated -- whether by the team or writers -- have been widespread. Jim Callis of MLB.com joins the show to take stock of the matter, and to discuss the team-building impact of overrating and underrating prospects.
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. Are prospects being valued accurately? Red Sox left-hander Andrew Miller -- once one of the two key chips that sent Miguel Cabrera from the Marlins to the Tigers -- assesses the matter.
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. Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
