Sports are a home run in my book -- I what do we gain support Sweeney had Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin the third or to -- -- nickname RG three.
Told GQ magazine he thinks the window is now for -- -- players to come out.
And Chipper Jones bucked the trend of athletes on Twitter by ditching the site because it too much eight.
Like I said what -- -- week in sports.
So let's discuss all that and welcome -- -- -- 247.
More touchdowns than me.
Not a wide margin but a margin nonetheless.
I was a 49 a fan as you know I grew up in the Bay Area I don't wanna bring things up but you have an interest in story -- about the fact that you lost.
Kellogg's -- through were playing your beloved forty -- are not -- -- many times you just weren't paid attention he's happy -- the game I was in this is a bit about was supposed to -- I'm gonna do is what I'm gonna do is we're also about three let's go -- -- game we kick off the them after we take the lead.
They get the ball not only eight yard line Joseph Montana walks out and legend has it that he saw John Candy in the stands and yes all the other ten guys and all the guys look at this don't -- -- I don't try to cut all the you know yeah -- the intensity of the moment everything else many marching down the field but -- he's watching them down the field.
I get a tap on my shoulder got does look like humans in this picture I don't know -- black glasses aren't and everything else I have cameramen actually had to make a person here and -- the writer of the lines break and the of the winds -- I'm going to Disney World and -- make sure that I knew my lines and as I'm practicing my lines and if the camera people walls surrounding me.
Much like -- not knowing what football's all about and intensity this sport and the moment that wrong.
-- that that that that particular time.
They're asked me if I know I'm I'm I'm -- on this and I'm content presumably on the Disney World now about thirty seconds of the game Joseph Montana hits John -- for the game winning touchdown pass.
And before -- get bored out of my mouth and I'm not going to this film festival running across the -- -- Jerry Rice because he was the MVP of the Super -- so -- that is you talk about insult to injury yeah that was it right there would you did you ever go to Disney World after that.
-- yes I tell you how many kids wanted to Biden have kids it's time yes so in the early -- you -- I made up with Disney and that I actually got a job Monday Night Football.
And here's a little bit of bug trivia question for you who voted I get fired up for who replaced me among them if -- -- Yes very latest -- announced.
No it's -- a few more to give you don't know anything about sports the -- is going to -- yeah.
Yeah that's right says a great.
This is yes and then yes and I can think he got off the -- question do you Bill Hemmer -- anchor to Cincinnati during your days -- -- -- Any -- stories not really he was really nondescript for -- located very straight lace them out of the stuff we had Jerry Springer.
He was more the story -- -- right -- woods.
Yeah we had some real characters and our team we had a character for -- Who went on to become a gazillion are doing you know what he does now and -- -- he's a very unique place that is true I was speaking of straight.
Griffin's comments is the NFL ready for an openly gay player.
You actually believe that there are a lot of gay players eloped but I'm sure that there are some and I -- agree with Robert Griffin the third that now is the time.
But then again he and I have something in common neither one of -- -- and so we don't have the understanding of being -- a player who's got to come out.
Against everything that he has in his mind how are people gonna respond to me yeah -- he probably has his own worst feelings and it's hard.
Say that I don't wanna come out because I don't want to deal with us but I don't wanna deal with maybe the repercussions from the ownership.
No it's all lip service the bottom line is I don't think.
Teams want distractions that yeah that's the big word of the amount no distractions.
And I think that initially will be a major distraction if a player does have.
You know the -- The command and say that he's gay and I want to ask you but the eighties -- -- the wild west when it came to steroids.
While -- steroids and cocaine and everything you take a look at the New York Mets here they have a poor baseball team apparel -- -- Dwight -- -- take a look at their lives you know girls try to get a flight back and owners that was -- It's a fight every single day.
They're crazy group of guys dykstra was on that -- god and -- left -- looking like he was a Little League player and then went to at Philadelphia in my radio reporter in the morning Greg Gordon told me when he was in Philadelphia.
You know blame actually openly said all special vitamins special vitamins so there was an -- push -- steroids in the eighties.
Odd coupled with cocaine that was the the drug of choice at the time.
And players weren't you know.
That's out there as they are today so.
Today's players would you know there are players are doing but not nearly -- the amount in numbers yeah I have some stories are cooking and I can sit -- -- -- -- Are actually had to hit I don't know if you.
And not -- recovered domestically as I understand what players do do it though I really do I mean all it does and we're gonna Iran.
-- 250 million dollar contract Texas came to New York.
Opt out -- opted out of his country got a new 275 million dollar contract.
So if you're looking up to A-Rod as the player in baseball -- -- you want to be you wanna make that money you're coming from.
You know the dregs of you know of Latin America the really poor communities and this is your way out it's -- it's it's -- gambling that you don't just get to that -- even if you get -- you still came out way ahead.
You know it's like -- if you take your -- that -- -- the shame for a couple hundred million dollar a lot of these guys you know.
I'm -- I thought about Mensa members here yeah you know we're talking about guys that are going out there using their body to try to make as much money as I possibly can and they see that they say you know he can do it.
We you know there's a much -- -- -- to -- bottom of your realizes the reason I believe the Major League Baseball -- hard on these guys.
Is because the more numbers they create a higher contracts go.
If they can suppress the numbers the contracts aren't gonna go quite as high so don't think for one moment that there isn't that part of the equation associated with this and -- Think point all right we gotta go now and remember to check out -- boomers is that foundation is the size -- dot org it's -- SRI -- as though and wait that's God's best know that they're definitely I think out of work dad yeah I'm still a -- did.
I'm a member of -- by the way I'm coming up.
