Is this contest in the gather mean you know we had the people -- that is -- and -- and they are in the -- As a documentary out there and it's take this makes it he's baby -- it talked about that the go to ups and downs the restaurant in -- These guys as bodies it's similar to the football players they just beat -- They beat their bodies up hope indicate -- change it much like football news. In other people physical sports they sacrificed their bodies hoping to make that big doubt that big contract some do some though but they you know they they get their bodies -- coming back. Mona Lisa genius BMI Herman. I Manassas will be was up barely eight DS is that the ATP that the program director. Will be was he used to do arrest and so it was a hot real hot here in our area a body ticks ticks me 8787 and one. Read a lot of them an email me be -- -- WW that. It's so obvious our coach Kennedy. And then all open lines the rest of the way after Memorial Day weekend from all of us here at WW. And welcome -- Scottie -- is called and teammate. It didn't mean he won six -- -- -- -- Michael Jordan is a great it was a great score but the -- Danes. Maybe better because he scores it uses his team is -- off base. And also professed arrests authorities -- it isn't real look bake if you are fans if they're really matter. You know it's almost like sometimes the complexities housewives -- of my wife and I tell us there was chaos at the Bob lapses. Fake as a kind of channel the -- there's no way -- -- -- TVs at the house they don't talk on the phone. They're not gonna do it if you to have somebody. That these reality shows now fake they have made it we try to out of those -- and the rest as -- you know throwing out their house. Trust a -- victim. -- Manassas extraordinaire host the first day that the program directed used to host to show the slam after it with us -- tied. He had been in the game the wrestling game for a long time but you were at -- in the it's it's that is maybe it's -- a popularity now too as well but. To have a show on radio and one now on satellite radio would -- great restless. If it's this it's power driven out of pains -- -- a lot of won't sports do you. Well I'd tell you -- it was it was a lot of on that it started like he says over the summer replacement show like you're doing now. And I'll update this summer then it was on Tuesday night on but he -- well and we used to do it was slam map for what we do it -- today after. The big Monday and reps at Monday night raw you. Indian. Had their wrestling and we used to bring out what actually happened now we took the approach. On this show and most of the callers and electors do it into the literature that we had on. Would admit. That it was all day. And it's basically a giant male soap opera. That is what wrestling has become. You know the weather watch soap operas during the day all that breaks up like slant an out the the housewives shows. But wrestling -- ball kind of died today. Where you have the storyline of the good guys and the bad guys they you'll. Sometimes you you would turn Euro and -- the -- very -- and it would just beat up on each other. So you have the whole story line in the draw all the soap opera with the technicality of these two big guys just beat the living daylights out of reach. -- what type of feedback he used to give anyhow how animated how passionate what do fans about a restaurant owner radio show. Oh I don't agree that you were incredibly pasture and fact that between -- the Internet was troops. -- and starting and we had a -- we actually they actually had to give our own page on the web site. Her -- they have a blog that continue going on discussing the things that we talked about show. And I'll tell you from from the young he would. To the old guys who would -- -- back in the fifties. They would call each wanna have that same amount of passion and their board. Each one problem lobbed it. And most of them took it for what it was. And out so you haven't -- the -- on and pocket to element and actually going to a couple of wrestling events that year they let it go backstage with them. From the show. I tell ya my hat's off to anyone who does this because. While it's pretty you know up with that in quotations. The only thing that is -- in they built the outcome of the rest of the match they're -- diplomats say -- would be quick -- match. Will -- that you're gonna win the match whip a figure four leg lock. And that's all we know what we step and ray that's pretty much all that figured out at the rate at the matches go. These guys are kind of communicate in -- -- -- considered real close. They know what's coming up next they've got to be ready for. -- Most memorable interview you don't -- arrest. Ol'. What's happening -- well. You know it was a Russell -- became a manager that -- the suspect it mattered in the manager's. Crazy. And a very good. Interview he knew a lot about the history. Knew a lot about right back he wrote a book. He's coauthored a book that sent me -- pro wrestling for dummies. And pretty much goes to explain everything that they do it who argue is and what happens in football are what they do certain things. In wrestling. Another interview which is which is kind of funny and I heard the call is matching most -- -- bar. There's always a great. Interview. And the interesting thing is I interviewed over the course of moderate your career different states movement round -- -- an -- Alabama Tennessee. I interviewed in Iraq or read different times. Under three different radio. And each time he would start to -- start to tell -- what you know look about -- when -- I would say it was. General remember me we've talked before I'm from saint Bernard parish and he would say okay you know all about -- that. -- -- -- -- That's why did you get to some matches at the youth down at Saint Bernard. Oh yeah you know funniest thing at a match epic -- say that you place to -- -- they are civic center whether they have the matches. By the by a couple of friends and -- we went we got -- ringside seats and we always for summary that like the duels. And at the time. Hacksaw Jim Duggan was the big heel and we were random -- eligibility and he came about everyone was going him the -- -- -- stood at ringside and applauded him. To which he'd turn the with a two aborted children look that -- they gave us is really strange look like wait a minute you're clapping for me on the bad guy. And then made the most of these guys are crazy until the everybody else in the race so that was in the arena that was pretty cool. I'll Beriault Hoffman and although he is now progress quite awhile at least as a soft spot or. For not always a pleasure thank you -- are -- All right coming back a -- the Mona Lisa she is Hammond Alex and a lot of people wave would they would -- -- off. Plus some very interesting story but dad started small and continues -- up. Maybe winning an answer to -- one -- college basketball. That story is a -- and Deke Bellavia. -- W news then it's 532 it's not the first new Hussein wrote do you smell what the Rockets coach. It's. Excess cited different sound off on -- Bryant staying in this moment teammate Michael Jordan as the week after the macho man Randy advanced. Randy says it's. Tragically that that's a car accident although wrestling into the mix thank you so much sixty year. Great interview by -- yes it book. Prominence is with the -- that the program director and -- the first statement about sports team on new team members. Of the rest show. That I don't mix Mets go 20 before we get the Mona Lisa genius uptown on line to genius thank you for caller. We will not big she's home I do. At a time and on this market jog back markets are moved to not that great player no he wasn't the greatest day. Oh you don't you think if you had to name one right now it's easy thing with the greatest ever -- you think -- You know -- -- is going to be Bill Russell and that's out doesn't market jobs by I might have done with the greatest in his. Was -- a lot of down it would no. They didn't have too much inevitability. Out that that they have not who. And Scottie Pippen Jordan in the none without attitude we need to -- and not. Now all the Brad banks he comes straight from -- -- -- about the first leg this year but it is not going to be easy to do you have to. You know as laughter it'll be advertise yeah. You don't think you don't think John play within the good guys and an era. That'll be in the Mexican it was on the -- Advance and there was on their way in what about you realize along Malone and all I want of that night but you are overrated Nadal needed to have -- own -- ready -- Even one of the greatest I don't know out there. Might have been the greatest power sort of all time -- that you're -- -- New York -- -- volatile Hakeem Olajuwon nobody and I mean nobody eight feet all the not. Could stop the dream shake but you think they're overrated. -- not not not Q did you didn't. Brad Radke when -- you're talking about if you're talking about. Due to tell him -- that your voice is championship -- of you talk about championships let's let -- -- went one in the we'll talk all right. Note note that thank you think that's -- genius. -- expect them to resolve will not -- a that would that it is they are all this could be part of another team that created this spot could. Very I you know would it genius I could agree you more he would do anything wrong -- -- breaking any rules that was ought to system now. We could -- about the way he did it but you're right nothing -- -- was -- He gave two million to charity I mean I'm gonna people have been done net out doesn't match. That's big right given -- about it cannot check that I mean come on man lit. Boy genius I think I think you make at that you makes a tremendous sense -- would -- that they save but as far as the air with jawed with and that area what's what's more golfer because of rules. And the way the game was played -- that it is now athletic ability. You're right about Eric -- about a Salem my air with a bit that this air with that would get old school with calling -- target. Well that's completely used Braylon. You know that didn't mean players now don't play with mark. Backhand there was like a quote unquote on spoken cold of hurtled jumping whereas it took for -- Put us sixes and everybody else detracts or plant Boston the heat to a championship. In after that. It was kind of like the aero -- the Sixers in the Pistons team. In the Knicks came all the the bullets came up that you had to get past the Celtics yet to get past that the Pistons had to get past the Bulls so to me was much more physical. And they were more dominant centers in the game the game whereas now the -- point guard driven so. I'm not a discredit anything that happened championship wise in -- Michael Jordan -- because of meat when you think about young and older that error at that point time. The end of magic and bird it -- the emergence of the sentence Robertson Ewing. Our allies who want that we talk about other guys that company it was incredible. And to me it was -- players at that point that is now but that is like your opinion it's just my opinion. Mona Lisa on my -- -- -- thank you for calling WW yeah. I'm right he did not only. I call -- now that the protocol to you see big. He learned the most fateful. Who -- and he died and his service the that they at he -- people in goal with the law like camp -- now. And he split the season ticket holder since the beginning. That I know he went to the game thankfully. He elevates the game and EA active in his group over itself even last year. Each game. And acted like the -- job but he was so excited when we won that -- epic was more of an outward and acting black. But all of these they -- that they absurdities -- and friends appreciate you call -- today. -- like it had to do it he was my buddy and I mean he was just a wonderful wonderful man and he's La is drink -- -- -- you know. -- -- -- -- -- And -- all of -- gate GMJ. And that aren't. And I. Am -- Normally I'm I'm like units aren't the guys like trying to give away that seek to acted just are right now. Is all is ala Jordan Davis all -- -- You don't like it all -- it be like Mike there was only one Ottawa Ottawa. Appallingly -- Hewitt he was out in Michael Jackson's popularity he was the QB like might well. -- totally suspected dog and I appreciate. Unity.

Scotty pippin longtime teammate Michael Jordan a part of six or tentative with the Chicago -- says Jordan was a great score but LeBron James may be better because he's -- and uses his team. Seek to meet. I do see a piece of jealousy and bad because he's CAC scores and uses his team. How might remember Michael Jordan not not use -- to me. That's just me. So maybe Scotty failed to join him use him enough I go back to the ninth for Eastern Conference semi final it would. Guy Pittman sold him blow put up crap don't abuse the -- tactic because -- of the plate. Dakota Ku coach the game winning shot in game three. He hit the shot.

Maybe he's had to put Miami I would think it has kind of hit us all by surprise that they came from him that look like if you know I don't know if if Robin came out told that the associated. All -- and it was good but he would have been worth a -- not a bad deal but almost utility thing you know war all agreed and it was better than that pain -- -- -- as if the closeness of it that somebody else that deal winning Santo. Some -- from another team with that as well I -- point 3833. You know. I don't know. 260187866889. Yards it gains dale. One -- off Michael Jordan.
