We have Tony Syracuse says 34 minutes after the -- he'll be joining -- talking about his new book which you know thought about because it's about him.
-- -- life and times of football guy co written by our good friend here Don Yeager.
And that was the title very angry Chris Wallace joins us right now because that was the title he was gonna use.
It was going to be he was gonna say the our -- -- ties to a football guy because Chris -- -- you like what.
All correct I -- football number one number two I -- Tony Siragusa ever met him but I I'd love what does that goes to those and Kennedy.
You want to me don't tell the -- here right.
Tony -- and you'd hardly to me Chris Wallace now don't don't worry Chris he's a guy you -- take on verbally just not physically although he's very quick on his feet.
Also a Fox Network guy like Gil.
Nice to see it done.
-- go they grab the microphone the great Chris Wallace wants to talk.
Guys aren't at -- But we do this but again that's an irony here at fox do we got -- everything you need right.
Let's put on the big -- -- I think you guys do a great.
Some ratio and still feel -- I love books you about a different perspective bitten the -- up on the boats and release all seem to get along pretty well.
You know were pretty special network I don't know if you knew that mean -- and down their Kenny Albert is a tremendous job.
He's delicate computer I think hard drive in his head it's unbelievable the stuff that he pulls -- and -- -- upstairs and myself down on the field.
No they don't feed me as well as they feed those guys that is not true you know.
-- -- Yeah you notes and a lot of my own recipes in there and -- -- of a bag -- -- They'll be on the field with the elements is is a lot of gray.
How could you hit could you handle a guy like seraguso on -- -- for example they leave his Mike open all game.
Therefore he gives you the field level commentary it's almost like a third man in the Buddha yet he's on the field.
Chris could I ever maybe -- your show from the Korean revisit lead by wide open.
This is a pathetic thing.
-- Tony did that Bryant does seem to be I don't it's not a it's not really does sound like he's -- yeah.
Well I just don't get so listen you you follow the news to an exceptional so folks -- Chris this week I would argue follow -- elections -- Yes following elections as well I see uniting in and by the if you watch this online -- of friends that come that's why you put the -- when you hear yes is this is fresh amended the front is flipped up -- mean this is the new stuff out whose whereabouts most of Flickr I think it's the law in the center.
You're playing way above about the same -- are now probably about 345.
That's likely happen after I got done playing that's one idea that I can I kept feeding the same way didn't really do is much in the -- -- haven't been -- it's really.
-- -- -- have a little -- in my house and looking at once so I don't want -- to do -- then why did you not -- -- actually I I had the lap band surgery and you know same thing as Rex Ryan I don't I don't know yeah I had and I lost about a hundred -- I probably -- -- -- 450.
-- -- -- -- It really does make you know what no sleep apnea wasn't sleeping -- Norman helped just went totally -- to my blood pressure went up it wasn't good -- -- -- you know what I have to do some young kids in.
I decide to get lap dancer he dropped a hundred I could still you don't listen I could still drop another fifty you know sixty pounds with I was happy to get that weight back coffin and the but the human again -- -- -- save a lot of money.
This is a money thing you are just flat out -- -- -- -- slow metabolism right now though it was just too much my calorie intake when I plead was.
Was big and you know when I first and only goes 285 pounds and I was pass rusher -- and and -- you know look the nickel we you know it will -- -- on nickel and and rush the passer and you know and then as the as you know when he started getting worse and they moved me from the opposition to nose guard ceremony it's too deep offensive linemen and it was like.
You know it puts more weight on got to rationale there yet I put ten pounds on a year I just didn't stop Brett -- So Chris the ones in the o's tome is -- -- no matter who's on the show he was who was it was Chris Wallace it was opened up a monologue I really adhere to that now.
I say -- do you readily and then I bring in Tony.
So we don't even have an outline for gonna talk about so I broke every broadcasting ruled over the Internet.
Right unlike a -- almost -- which it -- -- Well I can take Alex what about football stuff Cuba perhaps rocks.
And yeah yeah -- manipulator.
We should look into that dictator Estonia and he won't admit it he doesn't like football he likes soccer.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And -- bought you know and fox is doing the way fox does it in the AC the excitement and you know toll that Brian balding or no the -- there originally.
He said his car and to cover in the World League.
He wants to -- time let's throw this mania is that -- we goes to a game.
So I had no idea sock was played like this is the passion which I feel -- this is on the brilliance of it's innocent game.
It's acute straight and you got to go to Europe and watching him and that's where really -- actually do as they so Chris just real quick about if I can squeeze in some politics in Tony had pretty sure he can keep up with me how -- It would -- Tony Siragusa.
Smart that's the question that was good enough if you yeah.
-- insult this guy he's a wise guy like you're.
Not a wise guy like sopranos wise guy you to listen Chris.
Anybody making it as an -- learn.
Yeah yeah way to go against -- people that thought -- -- will be outside the doors from UV this bill and that's my -- I kids are my own people.
I'm half I'm half of -- -- can only some very tough -- solicit money should and I and it worked with a dad met -- Irish father marries a Italian mother they usually take that the guy's name when I hit it well Lisa has a valid via the OK -- Good point why you Brett why you ridiculing me for bringing -- to -- attorneys are reducing you should be thanking me.
All right here's a quick question of -- -- -- sentiment.
I am shocked you one thing about Mitt Romney.
And it is and it was pointed out by senator Lindsey Graham I think on Monday.
-- -- -- -- He should be doing this guy I would agree work -- twenty hours a day he should be in the battleground states do it is now balls.
Running his ads are watching college football Saturday and people have called us around the country not -- -- ad is running.
What is he saving is close to a billion dollars for Chris I've never seen anything like I could.
Agree more I I was thinking back and I understand that you know now what's called a -- -- it's not done through -- public funding.
But I covered Ronald Reagan in eighty and 84 McGovern Dukakis in 88 I didn't.
Had a fund raiser they did it was late at night or something like that this -- will go off the trail all night at -- seems to do it too but not quite as much.
It he's been the best on the losing campaign -- full time like if -- got to go out and win votes.
I -- we agree on that that's a good start up for re having our relationship.
Number two this week how damaging is that so called surveillance video in your mind in the 47% -- -- audiences need to hear again but what do you think.
I think it depends on what he does with -- -- remember that when Obama gave that speech on -- that people.
-- so much up in 2008.
It was after we'd all seen that that the videos.
But what about Jeremiah Wright of the Reverend Wright and allow -- thing is that he said that the people were offended by.
And and basically Obama -- a bad situation and turned it around I think if I were you know for what it's worth.
If I -- Romney I would make a major speech this next week he's going to be an Ohio and the theme of -- speech would be.
I'm going to be better for the middle class than Barack Obama is is and here's specifically.
Why and and talk about the things you'll do for the middle class make it clear he's not just protecting his rich brown has.
The tax reform -- -- include some sacrifices by rich people.
And and try to turn this perception around going to be doesn't I think it's gonna -- Since -- -- -- went to the we hate the rich people to.
It was just really hate success so -- let riches it is what -- people talk about rich people -- our guests over 280000.
That the rich people you know you get them -- fifty markets.
You know there's a lot of people that I know that are over 250 but I think you guys are actually right I mean.
Mitt has to get out there I mean he's just.
You know your your.
Absolutely 100% you know spend some of that money -- you know try to reach some the middle class people try to get.
Pictured your face out there are a little bit -- -- Obama is a great speaker when you listen to him you know and -- -- and you watch and he mesmerized you and he says all the right things and and you know Mitt going in hiding -- thinker or or.
Trying to go a couple of idea how to spend the money is -- would get out there and do something to you I think you're 100% right you don't you don't seem at all it is like he's in -- -- they get much nicer Tony is in new workers he said I was or four times and I haven't got four times in in two years.
You know publicity.
Just say this deal with how would you would you have respect.
Per -- or Hormuz if they acted like this would you.
Now but I would never tell Brian.
I want to hear that mesmerizing President Obama on Letterman this week I think this is gonna come back to haunt them.
And if Frank -- I know worked for for Mitt Romney would already be in an -- let's listen do you remember what that number was what was it to ten trillion wasn't I don't.
-- -- the number was precisely right we don't have to worry about it short term right now interest rates are low because.
People still consider the United States the safest and greatest country on earth rightfully so.
But it is a problem long term it an even medium term.
Really it's a problem long term or medium term and by the way we did edit together for time purposes.
But he didn't know the debt was sixteen trillion dollars.
I know he was that -- what -- -- he took office but having said that wouldn't I don't know precisely he is that it was like I'm gonna answer at all it was ten point six trillion.
It's now sixteen plots trillions he's got a 50% -- it didn't do that that.
But he totally -- it -- he says it's not going to be a problem short term does not know about the fiscal -- we're about to hit about two months.
He does now and he was able to take that question about the way Letterman snuck in a hard question by mistake and -- men and himself.
And he -- -- that question any gets away with that with that line and actually my TiVo's -- I was gonna bother you with my issues are usually tape Letterman every night.
You know why -- -- well all the time -- never -- -- -- -- so I couldn't get Letterman but seriously why it's taken a day but he's gonna pay for that I believe.
Well I it is it eight get allotments are an -- got away with it but the fact is that you know.
The devastated -- but again and I'm not trying to let Obama off the -- people know.
That the economy's bad people nobody added to the deficit but there's two parts to the equation.
The fire Obama higher Romney if you if people I think it might be disposed of fire Obama but they haven't been persuaded.
Higher Romney and this gets back -- would.
Tony and I were talking about you were trying to hang on to this is this is music is that.
He's got to make the case why hire me why I'm going to be better than this guy yeah.
You think makes -- scared to go out and on television in and out out there and and and say something wrong.
Yeah I think possibly I but I would say listen John McCain wasn't my -- guys -- three -- -- -- -- sometimes.
And one thing is we knew John McCain was going in and we really knew going out heating water and take audiences and people critical of him.
Mitt Romney's got -- great work ethic he talks about in his book being -- twenty hours a day.
-- -- is wife with four kids and feeling bad about it.
Because he had to go back to work.
Where's that work at people listen more is most important yet Chris who abuse -- who do you want to tell America is on your show.
-- or goes is gonna be our guest for the hour.
Absolutely one -- -- what about -- power player and you can plug his book goose the race to siphon titles football -- what you work -- -- I had the Minnesota Vikings against of the notorious.
San Francisco 49 rules.
Is that it whereas that's in Minnesota Minnesota so it's controlled area its turf for -- fans came out they would Minnesota better bring their a game because Sanford Cisco I know it's early in the season but the agents the click power doesn't get a little while they are offensively defensively.
I'm happy for Alex with I think that -- that you know the things that are happening -- Lou offer scored -- and he's had he's really come a long way because some good throws and I think that they're really.
Sort of -- about it and yeah a lot of their powers and yeah a lot of Shia.
He's the -- -- -- -- -- they're good guys committed -- sidelined with we will have a little fun let's go to some of the day off the personal values and -- Can get a Bobbie I'm -- going to be at the Redskins games Cincinnati at Washington on the.
I don't have the redskins' opening day against New Orleans.
I don't that what went right -- Classic and out yeah let's go 101 delegates to break it's okay yeah the -- -- -- -- technology -- I'd like RG three.
I think that they are doing a great job in Washington of setting up game plans for him.
And coming out and keeping it unbalanced and and make it hard for defense is to go just throw whatever they have -- I think he's doing a great job is freebies he's -- throws downfield.
He has great vision I was little concern you know looking into pre season especially against Indianapolis when I saw a lot of the deep throws that weren't really accurate but you know those medium and short throws are really right on target -- and offensively they -- the run game -- -- there -- solid -- face up -- they're just gonna get better -- This is what makes America great place to people from different walks alive for two different interest.
Your interest in being very should strong successful -- -- -- an intellect.
I brought you two together I deserve a lot of credit for those her group -- marquee Sunday will feature who besides Chris Wallace.
That's good question I just asked -- geragos that.
I've done well we didn't really with circus this -- -- way back.
Yeah all right Chris thanks so much gonna watch and Sunday and talked a great talking to you Brian much the good.
