Until I found out at Foxboro high school decided to name their brand new football field at December's that was the ultimate feel good moment for me yesterday. Yeah it was a nice story it's.

But he never missed the party. Personally. And you missed lots of people like ceramics and lots support yet -- have to be alone and tell us a little in. Well it's even harder if he were surrounding himself with people like -- that's true yet despite a Bradford you like. I love him you got for audio IQ what I think you're like my I like -- -- -- -- hates. You can find people that you'd like.

So hard -- look at African teach tee shot to put this one all right if I -- and the if you hit it good ends up in the trap in the -- hundred need to get to the green up a lot of attract. It's not a fun look at you know Augusta with the expectation. QB that just great right yeah like you Pebble Beach hello. Maybe not yeah. -- that's the one that's probably that's not a great wish I know though right I guess if you had that attitude that don't keep score to school and -- look at -- you the most amazing back to in my the most amazing back to about Augusta National list. The tournaments in five weeks closed as soon as it's over. I think at some people play on the next -- Expedia as -- right -- old wreck on Monday and the course is close at that point right and this year it's buried in snow yet. As we've seen many -- Eisenhower tree is gone on its right -- Will be the same as the plane as allies I think it over the eyes. That's great it got so Eisenhower said -- -- we have the industry is that now not when -- not not. And aunts Condoleezza Rice said during the trees that yes I -- pot and they got rid of it. But that will work on that we're gonna we're gonna get word that's been the -- show us -- we've been trying month. -- -- three week we've got to stuck. Will we shoot it down already yeah it's a shame on some -- disappoint -- costs as they as a group here. Well you'll what are you disappointed in just like we've looked at the request -- ignored it. We have -- -- -- -- don't tell my dog called a since we'll do this recess truly think we first heard it first started tweeting about it talk about it we get a yes but it's our health and it hasn't been done if somebody -- all the elements and. It's something you've been in this business long time when you went to your assignment editor channel seven that. He wasn't addicted -- -- -- care about the excuses when you didn't get the interview now it's like it that that's. When I worked -- -- -- one thing I liked and an expected was. They told you do this story get it done they didn't care how much is spent on your flights are your rental cars CO pills or anything. Just had to get it done and as -- called accidentally he was that they said. Did you get the story in no -- -- -- -- -- so you have to go back to Sports Illustrated with your tail between the legs when Barry Bonds political council well it turned out to be good story it's kind of like searching for Barry Bonds was lurking the whole time yet. And I talked to. Its father was great digital photographer. To get pictures of very adoring you. Forget I think so yeah got a market -- club house and I got to talk to all the people around him Jeff -- teammates and his father -- big what are the original idea to talk to bonds himself. You'd just try him in many people tried to blows tomorrow like me off but ambassador also -- also probably had nothing to historically talked. Rate to a kind of worked so well it did not that's fine we -- get a guy who doesn't wanna talk and I just saw someone did a good joke. The guy would talk now was this really good story but the talk all the people around him right. Usually better it was one of the league of denial guys. Refused to talk to him talk to people around him. In the book in the book wouldn't talk forget I get to -- just brought back via distributed to much he wants that you know -- mentioned this in the book. It's an. I actually got I think it -- that not only that I think I didn't tell you cannot believe I told him all he felt that he did not -- -- -- wanna get too excited. I did know he did not help me that I was completely surprise was that a nice feel. Well we ought to mention of Blagojevich or six times in particular -- read it didn't help us get all the Hollywood is trying to make a movie out of that book. And it's probably not get done. Because the NFL says we don't want that to get them that's -- powerfully NFL. Independent Hollywood people. Now hired a script writer a screen play guy to write this thing do the research and get it done and they think you'll like a one. In a hundred entity when you get mentioned that in how they're connected to virtually every network mean it's it's one of the smoke all six studios are somehow for the six studios are connected -- -- -- -- -- -- about -- OESP and obviously right. It is his whole box and see the Austrian right blocks NBC -- which they're big ticket Sunday night. Com ABC. Ago. CBS is tied him ABC easier life on ABC easiest of their completely in the satchel.

Wanna be business -- action that was it right he bids right at L one part. And and when you think about when the bidding and you think that's crazy four billion. And then three years later it's their -- is the most profitable and entity they own and and history's shown you -- over today. A more showing TV is some notes one of the twenty I think I believe it was 23 of the 25 approach via a football last year right football pants as the Goodell says to anyone of those studios. If you do this movie. You're done under contract comes up what's. -- -- because it was originally gonna run documentary right of denial Frontline yes on PBS and they said -- -- -- -- It is -- mean it is the whole the whole theme of the book it is. Weird as the NFL's heart truly it's a lot it is originally there in the aisle but eventually -- -- comes around and now he talks about when he speaks about it every day. One make the -- safer. -- finish that books and an end it's and that they wanna make the NC for obviously from liability reasons that no other. Is there away and you need Mexicans is not -- -- games Portland as you cannot and they have tried to -- that helmet did that prevent concussions they they failed there is no ailment. They've changed the rules. -- it's it differently and still in -- guys still it's almost in intrinsic part of the game cannot be changed. 6177757937.
