We also find out how ready Jason is for the booth when we break down his first MNF assignment, and of course, we revisit the NFL vs NBA debate that tore the professional sports world apart.  Finally, Travis lets us know what he thought of his Eras Tour stop in Paris, we attempt to name the new Utah NHL team, and we’ve got a huge announcement from our friends at Crown Royal.  If you want to nominate a 92% who has taken your community to New Heights, submit their name, and a photo, and let us know how they’ve been giving back to our email at: Include their date of birth, social account, and mailing address!

Starting point is 00:00:00 This Friday... I actually like this so much better than a motel. I bet the people who live here are really happy. ...witness how the Strangers... Hello? ...became the Strangers. You have to get out of here. What the fuck are you doing?
Starting point is 00:00:19 Why are you doing this to us? Because you're here. The Strangers is Chapter 1. Only in theatres Friday. Order up for Damien. Hey, how did your doctor's appointment go, by the way? Did you ask about rubellsus? Actually, I'm seeing my doctor later today.
Starting point is 00:00:38 Did you say rubellsus? My dad's been talking about rubellsus. Rubellsus? Really? Yeah, he says it's a pill that's... That's right! Did you know it's also covered by most private insurance plans? Well, I'll definitely be asking my doctor if Rebelsis is right for me. Rebelsis. Ask your doctor or visit Order up for Rebelsis. Trust, where are you at? I can neither disclose that information, nor do I know. Can we get a country of origin? I can neither disclose that information nor do I know. Can we get a country of origin?
Starting point is 00:01:07 I can give you a continent. I'm in Europe. This isn't like the guessing game. Like we're not guessing where Travis is. We're not playing 21 questions? Is that an ambulance? They definitely don't have ambulances here though. I'm gonna assume that's in New York
Starting point is 00:01:20 because that's what happens in New York. Yeah, that goes off the skyscrapers. Bonjour! Welcome to New Heights, ladies and gentlemen. 92% is presented by Wave Sports and Entertainment and brought to you by Buffalo Wild Wings. Let's go sports bar. That's right.

Oh, we got a great episode for you guys lined up right now. All right now. I don't know if you can tell we are not in our standard setups. Travis is overseas. He will not disclose his country, but he did give us an introduction with a certain language, so I'm going to bet on that one.
Starting point is 00:02:27 I am in New York at an NFL location inside New York City because I'm at the Outfront 3SPM. What are you doing there, Jason? They're going to announce that I'm a part of Monday Night Football officially. Oh, nice, man. Yeah, that's fucking awesome. Kind of already been announced, but it's going gonna be a little bit more official here coming up So yeah, we're all kind of in our in uncharted territory if you will they're all out of the house right now and
Starting point is 00:02:53 We're gonna give this up So we wouldn't we refuse to not do everything possible to give this episode to you 92 percenters everything possible We find a way to make it happen despite the time differences, besides the mileage across oceans that we have to stream this to get it to you. We're getting it to you. We'll always produce. This episode, we're going to be talking about the Chiefs kicking off the NFL season. Travis having their very own Euro trip.
Starting point is 00:03:20 Yup. And yeah, I'll let everyone know how I started maybe the biggest horse war since... 1812. Some medieval war. I don't really got anything. I would imagine wherever you're at, Trav, there's been quite a bit of horse wars. But first, as always, new news. New news.
Starting point is 00:03:41 Coming in hot. All right. New news. Travis has gone Hollywood first time. I have second time, but yes. First item of New News, it has officially been announced that Travis has been cast in a new upcoming FX horror series, Grotesque Gary from showrunner Ryan Murphy. Yes sir.
Starting point is 00:03:59 Travis, how's it going out there? What's happened while filming this? Has it been fun? Dude, it's been so much fun? What's happened? While filming this? It's been fun. Dude, it's been so much fun. You've been meeting a bunch of people. Yes, I'm in there with Nisi Nash Betts. Little Reno number one. Ryan Murphy is an unbelievable writer, director, producer, all the above, man. There's nothing he
Starting point is 00:04:22 can't do. Everybody's just been so helpful and, there's nothing he can't do. And he's just, everybody's just been so helpful and making me feel comfortable. And even on top of that, just giving me kind of the direction I need in the coaching, I need to, to, you know, portray this part that I'm in. And it's been so much fun, man. It's been so much fun. I feel like a jabroni. I feel like an amateur and haven't gotten fired yet. So we're doing good. We're doing good. Not being fired is usually a good sign. They haven't told me to kick rocks after the first week of being with them.
Starting point is 00:04:51 So it's been awesome. And it's such a cool and unique show. I don't want to give away too much, but the name itself can tell you it's quite a mystery and every scene has just been so much fun to be in. So awesome. Yeah. Nisi Nash shared this video with you guys on Instagram and said, this is what happens when winners wake up. Welcome to Go Test Security. So much fun, man. What can you tell us? What is acting like? Not just like having like a limited role,
Starting point is 00:05:23 but like full on. Like, are you, how many episodes are you in? Do you know yet? I don't know anything about any of that. I don't even, I'm right now. I'm just taking it scene by scene and trying to make sure that I, you know, remember my lines. And, uh, like I said, I'm very amateur at this. Um, but it's, it's been fun. It's been fun jumping into things. The biggest difference from being outside of the acting world and starting to get into it is you're very much
Starting point is 00:05:52 in tune to the scenes and you don't want to get so much caught up on the lines. You want to be in the scene with whoever you're acting with, right?? So I started off thinking, man, just memorize your lines, memorize your lines. But in the reality of things is you want to be able to take that scene from one point to the next and, uh, and portray, you know, exactly, you know what the scenes meaning is. Yeah. It's been so much fun kind of unraveling that with, uh, not only Ryan Murphy and Nisi, but everybody involved. And yeah, it's just, it's very, it's a fun challenge for me right now. I was talking to Miles Teller at the Shoot Bowl.
Starting point is 00:06:32 Legend. And I was asking him, you know, how do you go about picking like roles and like what you're going to do? He said, first of all, you read the script, it's all about the script. But then he said, it's always so about, you also about directors, writers, producers, like all these other people that it takes. And you're with obviously Ryan Murphy on this project, the guy who's brought other shows such as Glee, American Horror Story, American Crime Story, Nip Tuck, 9-1-1.
Starting point is 00:06:57 So much. This guy's got quite a catalog of unbelievably successful shows. How's it been like to work with him? Have you seen any of his other shows? How does this compare? Yeah, I mean, that was such a big part of it. And I was kind of blown away and like, kind of like shocked that he was willing
Starting point is 00:07:13 to give me a role like this, because it is a big role in the show. And he seemed very confident that I'd be able to do this. And he kind of injected that in me the first conversation that we had. So yeah, hopefully I don't fuck. I don't bomb this for him. Now you're gonna do good. It sounds like it's everything's going as planned. And I can't just I can't thank him enough for just this opportunity
Starting point is 00:07:37 because I'm sure there's actors out there that have been in the acting world that would die for an opportunity to work with Ryan. And I'm getting it in my really my first gig ever. So it's pretty, pretty unique and pretty cool. How does it compare to Moonbase eight with my man, John C. Riley? It was just a completely different vibe. John C. was so fucking awesome. And it was that was like pure comedy. It was nothing but comedy. It was like everything they were saying.
Starting point is 00:08:06 I was like in the scene with them trying not to die laughing at the shit him, Fred and Tim were saying. And it was just it was awesome. That was such a cool experience in itself. But night and day different in terms of what the shows are going to be. I can't wait. Hopefully. Good luck in the rest of the filming and getting it done and can't wait to check it out.
Starting point is 00:08:27 That's gonna be on FX, right? FX, baby. Yeah, baby, tune in. Yeah. Go test Gary, featuring the big yeti. All right, Jason, we just talked about it a little bit. You're officially signing with ESPN. We're also recording this on Tuesday.
Starting point is 00:08:41 By the time you're watching this, Jason Kelsey will officially be a member of ESPN family. That's right. Couldn't be happy for you, dude. We grew up watching all of the legends and ESPN really fueled our sports like fandom or our competition or our knowledge of the games that and the sports that we were playing. And I'm just so happy for you, man. But do you want to do you want to tell everyone exactly what you're doing and and what you signed up for at ESPN?
Starting point is 00:09:09 The big thing is Monday Night Countdown. That's the main part of the deal. We got some other things in the works potentially, but that's the most important thing that we've really tried to iron out. When I called you and we started talking about the different opportunities, but I mentioned ESPN in particular, your exact words, I think, were, man, you're going to be on Monday night football. And I'm like, yeah. It's insane. Yeah, it's crazy. You know, it was you know, this was especially when we were growing up.
Starting point is 00:09:38 This was the night everyone thought of the football, right? Monday night football. And now I'm going to be on there with some incredibly talented people with Scott van Pelt, Marcus Spears, Ryan Clark. You know, all these guys offer not just great expertise, but wonderful personalities. And I just think it's gonna be a lot of fun, man. It's gonna be a good time. We're going to be at the games traveling around. I still don't know what I'm wearing. So I guess we'll find out. Is he is going to make you wear a suit? They're going to make you button it up, dude.
Starting point is 00:10:07 I don't mind wearing a suit if that's what it calls. I think there's a time to be relaxed and be off the cuff, but there's also a time, I think, to be a little bit more buttoned up. And yeah, we'll see. We haven't really talked too much about it. Nice. Well, I'm a little biased, but I'm just rolling with it. I'm a little biased, but I think you guys have the best desk in football right now,
Starting point is 00:10:28 dude. That's a hell of a fucking lineup right there. It'll be good. It'll be good. Are you going to be able to not be biased if the Chiefs and the Eagles play Monday Night Football? I will, of course, be biased in who I'm rooting for. But in my analysis, I think I'll definitely be able to be unbiased.
Starting point is 00:10:47 I think I kind of always am. Even while I was a player, I was always trying to give my honest perspective and point of view. And I don't think that changes now. I think now I'm just going to have more opportunities to voice that, which is either good or bad, probably bad if you're a horse racing fan. But good if you're a football fan. Obviously I'm always gonna root for the Chiefs and Eagles, especially the Chiefs while you're playing.
Starting point is 00:11:12 And the Eagles, you know, that's where I spent my entire career. So I'll always be rooting for those teams, but as far as like sharing, you know, sports analysis, football analysis on them, I'll always be honest. Are you gonna be on my ass? Are you going to fucking, are you going to be harder on me than anyone else? Are you going to be more open to fucking shit on me because it's me? No, no, I wouldn't do that to you.
Starting point is 00:11:38 No, come on. I'm going to make fun of you for sure. But I don't think, you know, if you like drop a pass, I'm not going to go out of my way to do anything like that. But if you do, I need to catch the fucking ball. Silly dance. Yeah, I mean, I'll say that, but I'm not going to like jump on top of you. But if you do like a silly end zone dance that I think looks stupid, I'll make fun of that for sure. Can't name one of those. All right. Now, let's get into some fan mentions of the week. We got some good ones and we appreciate you 92% as for always sending them in from at Cartooner radio on Twitter, who
Starting point is 00:12:14 sent in an incredible, incredible cartoon version of us talking about getting kicked out of preschool. They even got Kylie in there. Me and a kid were playing and for some reason we, we were stabbing each other with sporks. For some reason, they were playing. Jason didn't like how they were playing, so he stabbed him in the face with a fork. I got kicked out of preschool because during playtime, the teacher told me, you know, Travis, you have to share.
Starting point is 00:12:37 I said, no, I don't, and threw the chair that I was sitting in at her. Kind of just used our voiceover for this cartoon. And I'll tell you what, this is damn good. Yeah, this is great. I think they got you a little skinnier, but maybe that's motivation. No, that's like, they just know where I'm headed. No, this is a, this is the kind of content we need people. This is so good.
Starting point is 00:12:58 This is so good. Great animation, funny. I mean, Cartoon Radio really knocked out of the park with this. Hell yeah. They tweeted it saying, why would you give that kid a spork? The famous Ed Kelsey line at New Heights show at Jace at me and hashtag Kylie because she's not on Twitter. So we absolutely love this thing. What other New Heights stories do we need a cartoon version of? I don't know. I mean, I think the Kylie shark incident.
Starting point is 00:13:32 That's showing some visuals and you just paddling away. That would do pretty good. Yeah, that would do pretty good. Mine and Kylie's first date. That's probably another good one. Oh, god damn. That's good. Oh, how about mom? Mom putting you on the leash at the music park. Leash kid. Leash kid. Who the fuck is 53? The Brian Kelly. Just absolutely ripping that kid. I mean, to show some visual.
Starting point is 00:14:00 We would love that. We would love that for sure. Man, I'll tell you what, this is pretty good, though. They did a great job of the spork going straight into the kid's head. visual of that. We would love that for sure man. I'll tell you what this is this is pretty good though They did a great job of the spork going straight into the kids head I remember that like it was yesterday you could tell that was exactly how it happened. It was a little exaggerated It wasn't that much Nope, it was exactly that and we weren't I don't remember being in the principal's office or that I Remember we were like kind of just in the same room. I don't think there even were offices. I mean, it was a preschool. But yeah, no, it's... Other than that, it's pretty accurate.
Starting point is 00:14:30 So good, man. Fuck. How's Wye doing at preschool? Can we get an update on... Wye's doing great. Nice. She hasn't got kicked out yet. Not kicked out. And matter of fact, the teachers have nothing but rave reviews. So obviously, she's taking after Kylie very well. That a girl. No, she's doing great. She loves it.
Starting point is 00:14:49 Ellie actually just started preschool. She's at the same school with Wyatt. They're both, they call them frogs at this preschool when they're that young. Oh, tadpole and frog. They graduate to bear. Yeah. That's frogs and bears and yeah, whatever. Everything else in between, I guess.
Starting point is 00:15:03 Dude, it's fun listening to your kids talk about what they did for the day, you know, who they're meeting at their little classes, like why it's got a crush on one of the boys. I'm not telling you his name, but you can just tell in the way she talks about him. So I'm ready to beat the fuck out of him. Just go after the dad.
Starting point is 00:15:23 She's like, calm your kid down. All right. He doesn't need to be this cool. He's only in preschool. I know how these fuckers think when they're five. I know exactly what's going through his mind. Exactly how these fuckers think. Oh, man. The teachers are impressive.
Starting point is 00:15:46 I mean, like we went in for like a pair of teacher, like conference deal or whatever. Like we met with the one head of her what they're like assessing what they know the same teacher that we have for wide and Elliott was also the teacher that preschool when Kylie was growing up. Oh, you can just tell how amazing she is and just great at her job. I know it's just awesome to see. And I think it's really cool to to hear your kids experiencing things
Starting point is 00:16:13 on their own and then come back to share them with you. That's got to be fun, man. Yeah. Well, shout out to why for not getting kicked out yet. And Ellie, keep enjoying it, girl. Sure. Up next, the rest of the fan mentions are directed at Jason. Nice. Oh, I wonder why. I guess you accidentally started some serious beef
Starting point is 00:16:32 with Horace Twitter after you accused the beloved secretariat of doping. You accused it like every horse wasn't doing it, but you singled her out. but you singled him out. All I was trying to get across in the podcast, and this devolved online, where I started talking about enlarged hearts as a very non-medical person and steroids. So we're just going to get back on track here. All I was trying to say was that we should not compare eras across each other.
Starting point is 00:17:03 I believe that in all sports, not just horse racing. All sports. I don't, yeah. There's still, I don't even wanna get out of this, but like, it's, like there's been a, this isn't like, it's just crazy the like. I can't believe you got into this. Yeah, it's really, it's really stupid.
Starting point is 00:17:22 It's very stupid. Oh, it's so funny, man. I go on Twitter, I go on Twitter last week and I'm just like what is Jason? Why is Jason? writing paragraph after paragraph Explaining himself right now. It was a little bit overboard you let Twitter get to you. I just can't let you can't let it People like don't say anything without facts. Well, I'm sorry guys. There's not gonna be any facts There's not they don't like it wasn't. Well, I'm sorry guys, there's not gonna be any facts. There's not, they don't like, it wasn't illegal. They weren't testing, but fair enough. I should not accuse accusations.
Starting point is 00:17:50 God damn it. There is no win here for Jason. I'm sorry, but that's the world we live in. I'm just gonna say this. I think that the testing of modern day horses is way different than what was happening back then. What the secretary had accomplished is remarkable.
Starting point is 00:18:09 It was clearly an incredible horse. All I'm saying is I'm not comparing the generation that was happening back then to what's happening now and what these horses have to do now. Not going to do it. Not doing it. I just want to say thank you to Twitter for getting my guy riled riled up man. Fuck. I'm not even again. Again, this was not steroids weren't illegal before. I'm not accusing anybody of wrongdoing. It just is what it is. This is so good. All right, let's get off. Let's get off of Secretariat. Shout
Starting point is 00:18:44 out to shout out to everybody involved. All the horse let's get off. Let's get off of Secretariat. Shout out to shout out to everybody involved, all the horse trainers out there that are doing it the right way. We love you. Don't give steroids to horses. All right, I'm done beating a dead horse. I don't want to launch accusations at one specific animal. That was not my intent. All I was trying to get at is we don't know what was going on in the 70s. People, there were all sorts of things available. The testing wasn't as good. That's all I was trying to get at is we don't know what was going on in the 70s, people. There were all sorts of things available. The testing wasn't as good. That's all I was trying to get at.
Starting point is 00:19:08 I apologize for, or if that made it seem that I was coming after Secretariat for doing things outside of what everybody else may or may not have been doing. I was not trying to taint that horse's legacy one bit. It's a magnificent horse with a heart bigger than the Grinch. And it's a magnificent animal. So like the Grinch has a heart. Well, at the end of the movie, it's a really, I think he was taking steroids. I think sorry. God damn it. In all seriousness, in all seriousness, Secretary was wonderful. Probably the best resource of all time, depending on who you ask.
Starting point is 00:19:56 But regardless, big fan of horse racing, big fan of Mystic Dan. And hopefully we can link you up at maybe the Belmont or something because I definitely can't make the previous but maybe the Belmont. Well, I can't wait to see how the Grinch juice Christmas. Dude, what if that? Yeah. How do you think he got that big ass bag of presents up? He had to take steroids and then his like, as his heart grew, he became more affectionate. I don't think that's how steroids work. You already made a Christmas album. I think it's time to make. Is that a teacup of accelerator? Is that how they drink it? I don't think they have accelerator here. I don't
Starting point is 00:20:36 even know how they say accelerator here. Well it's either Accelerator if it's France. If it's Italy either Accelerator, if it's France, if it's Italy, it's Accelerator. Where the fuck did you just go? I don't know where, it's an Accelerator. That's how they would say it in Italy. Nice, okay. So France, Accelerator, Italy, Accelerator. I don't know Spanish as well. You spoke Spanish and you should know it.
Starting point is 00:21:11 Well, they made me stop if I wanted to pass the class. That was part of the stipulations. That you had to stop? I forget what her name was, but she gave me a C if I agreed never to take another Spanish class. We went over this. In 10th grade, 10th grade. And I said, see. Let's move on to the NFL schedule release. All right, here we go. Like we said earlier, we are filming this episode
Starting point is 00:21:38 on Tuesday, so we don't have the full NFL schedule release yet that will come out Wednesday, I think at some point. But we do know the following. The Chiefs are going to kick off the season Thursday night against the Baltimore Ravens. Hey! And a rematch of the AFC title game. Actually, this NFL room I have is actually, it's a Ravens room. Yeah, we got the Ravens, baby. And got them in the first game of the year. So everybody
Starting point is 00:22:03 should be healthy and everybody should be feeling good and ready to rock and roll. I mean, I love a good powerhouse matchup to start off the season. I think it gets everybody excited for football and sure enough, they're going to see some of the best football being played. So I'm definitely geared up for that. I know the Ravens will be fired up to play us. That's for damn sure. I've been there before.
Starting point is 00:22:22 Does Ravens have any big off-season news? What do they do this offseason? I think they signed a safety or somebody else signed their safety. Or one of their safeties. Obviously they still got Kyle Hamilton, their best, their best like Derrick Henry. That was it. Derrick Henry. That's right. I knew it was somebody like that. They signed Derrick Henry. I knew there was a big signing. They lost OBJ, lost one of their safeties and signed Derrick Henry.
Starting point is 00:22:45 So, now their running game that was already amongst the best in the league just got the best in the league again. They got Thunder and they got Lightning. They got Derrick Henry coming downhill and they got probably the shiftiest. Dude, his Lamar is ridiculous. He's breaking dudes off left and right. It's absurd to watch. Dude, when we saw him in the AFC, bro, he wasn't a thin dude like he was at Louisville
Starting point is 00:23:09 in his first couple of years. He bulked up. Oh, really? He's breaking arm tackles. He puts a weight on him. Nice. For damn sure. I mean, he broke an arm tackle, one of the biggest arms on our team.
Starting point is 00:23:21 A kid, John Cena, Leo Chanel broke his arm tackle and threw a deep touchdown pass to Zay Flowers in the first quarter. And of course, Lamar is one of the most motivated guys in the league, one of the most dangerous quarterbacks to play this game. So it'll be a fun matchup and I know it's something to get excited for. I think they're going to want to come out and show out and we're going to want to, you know, start to season off on a great, great note. And what better way to do it against one of the best teams in the league? Yeah. The other big off season change for them is that they're doing the court and they took the job with the Seattle Seahawks. The first game of the year. I always hated going
Starting point is 00:23:57 up against teams with brand new coaching staffs. Who the hell knows what's about that? I mean, it's kind of fun. It's kind of like on the sideline, you're like, they're doing this, I didn't think they were gonna be doing this or what? Or it's like, yeah, it was exactly the same as where he was before. Did they promote somebody within
Starting point is 00:24:14 or did they hire outside? Do you know? I mean, you probably don't. You guys haven't started preparing for the Baltimore Raven jet? We might start doing that in minicamp. I know we usually get a little bit of a headstart Oh, there goes those New York sirens. I know that I think it's a fire truck. That's a I think that's a fire truck It's got that
Starting point is 00:24:36 Yeah, get the fuck out of the way we got to be somewhere we're not just trying to catch a bad guy We're trying to save good guys. So get the fuck out of the way. That's a good point That's exactly what that sounds like because I mean if we're trying to save good guys. So get the fuck out of the way. That's a good point. That's exactly what that sounds like.

Starting point is 00:28:43 heavy playoff contention? Like this is a, this isn't just like a regular game. This is a rematch of the AFC Championship. What do you think about starting the season off like that? I do like playing the potential like top teams in the league early. I'd rather play them early or like mid season. I don't like playing at the end of season outside of the division. Why, I just feel like it's too close to the playoffs. And if I have a chance to play them in the playoffs, like I want to keep that game fresh. Oh, you know, I don't know. I feel like we always play,
Starting point is 00:29:15 we've always played the Bengals in December or like January. And I just, I'm just like in my head, I'm like, man, I really just want to save that game and like the excitement and the hype of that game for the playoffs. Now, with that being said, it comes around in the playoffs and you're still excited. And it's still an unbelievable matchup. But I think it's cool that this year we play the Ravens early. We play the Bengals early. And those are going to be two of the best teams in the National Football League.
Starting point is 00:29:43 Yeah. So I just I'm excited. And it, it gets those two under our belt and kind of gives us, you know, somewhere to kind of like gauge where we are in the, in the, amongst those teams early on. And I like to see where I'm at and see, you know, how, what direction I need to go right now, if that makes sense. It does make sense. And I've never thought about it that way but it makes complete sense and I think you articulated it very well. And I'm always just fucking beat up in December man and those games are fucking tough man. I like what you're saying like the end of the year it's all about playoffs
Starting point is 00:30:18 so you should be playing in-division opponents to settle who's going to win the division and you should go into the playoffs with a fresh game. I agree. I think it is a different feeling. It's better when you get those out of the way early. Then you get to see how the teams changed later in the season. Because obviously there's a big evolution that happens throughout the course of the season. For all NFL teams. So I think that makes a ton of sense. Do you think the NFL is trying to build up the Mahomes Lamar rivalry the same way that there is also the Mahomes borough, Mahomes Allen?
Starting point is 00:30:55 I don't think they necessarily have to. I mean, every every game that we've ever played against the Ravens has been fucking a barn burner like to the end of the game, like, and there's been excitement left and right. There have been so many of those games. You guys opened the season on maybe Monday night against them one year, or is it either one or two? Was either the first week or the second week? And they may I think Wink was still there.
Starting point is 00:31:20 And it was like a blitz zero fest. Yeah, you guys were bombs over Baghdad. That was Pat Mahomes first year starting. And there was that long ago. Yeah, they were there. We're talking about the game that was at KC, right? Or was it at Baltimore? I think the one I'm thinking of was in Baltimore, but I'm not positive. I remember Pat's first year starting because we were losing
Starting point is 00:31:41 the game with like, seconds left, we had a fourth and forever that we needed to needed to like get and had started rolling out to his right and just fucking hucked it down late down the middle of the field like you're told not to your entire quarterback career. And Tyree was just right there. Right into the we're talking about the same game. I just. Yeah. So that was in KC. Yeah. And they blitzed us the entire fucking game.
Starting point is 00:32:08 I mean, that's true Wake fashion. Yeah. Get after the rookie quarterback or the young quarterback. Yeah. Was Lamar with Baltimore at that point, or was that pre Lamar? Yeah. No, I think that was his rookie year. He went fucking nuts. Lamar and Pat are the same year. I think either that or they're one year apart. I'm not sure. Yeah. Or right now, they're right around each other, though.
Starting point is 00:32:27 They're close though. All right. I remember. I just remember Lamar making unbelievable plays left and right. I remember it being a ridiculous game. I'm trying to I thought Lamar was out there. I'm just clarifying because it felt like their offense was ridiculously explosive in that game.
Starting point is 00:32:42 And I think that that was early on and like the Lamar and oh my gosh, who was the OC that was there? Was that Stanford? Greg Roman. Roman. There it is. Speaking of Joe Burrow, it was also announced that the Chiefs will be playing Bengals Week 2, as you just said. Is anything Joe said at the New Heights Live Show going to be brought back up?
Starting point is 00:33:02 Do you think? No, I don't think so. No, he loves talking shit. I'm sure Chris Jones will give him everything he's he's hoping for in terms of talking shit. Because Chris got a story. But I could not have been more impressed with Joe. He was just like every time I hang around him every time I catch up with a man it's just it you just you love the guy even more. It really is like, is a one of the best competitors out there. Cool hand Joe man. Joe shy. He's smooth. He's one of the
Starting point is 00:33:32 smoothest football players, just the most calm, cool, collected. And just just great competitors in the game. And when you meet him, man, he's just is ultimately just a just a great dude, man, for him to tell the story about when you text them and even to remember that you did that back then was, I thought, really told everybody the type of guy he is. He's just appreciative of the road and the journey he's had to this point, man. Yeah, we're going to have our hands full.
Starting point is 00:33:57 We're going to have our hands full. Joey B's looking big or stronger, looking like a fucking beast. He's got a brand new wrist tendon or ligament or whatever they had to fix in there. Yeah. That's going to be interesting. I can't wait to watch him when he gets back out there, man. Long overdue. And as Orlando Brown said, he is officially the spiciest white boy in the NFL. Or did he put you there? Which one did he put you? It was Joey B. There was no contest. I didn't even argue it. I'm just like, yeah,
Starting point is 00:34:21 I don't know who came up with this dumbass question. Everyone knows the church. I know it was intern Brandon. All right, here we go. We know we need we need content brand and we get it though. It will be interesting to see what they do with their their offensive weapons. They lost Joe Mixon. I know they gained Mike Gaseck be. The, what's that freaking? The skedaddle. The greedy. Yeah, yeah. The skedaddle.
Starting point is 00:34:50 His version of the greedy called the skedaddle. Yeah, I'm excited to see him in that offense and then on top of that, it'll be interesting what they do with the wide outs because I know they got to pay either one of them or both of them. I forget what the scenario is. It doesn't matter. As long as Joey B's out there, it's going to be a hell of a game because they got great pay either one of them or both of them. I forget what the scenario is. It doesn't matter as long as Joey B's out there, it's going to be a hell of a game because they got great defense and great coaches.
Starting point is 00:35:09 So. Absolutely. Start this thing off right, baby. Little two, two big prime time matchups, man. A couple other highlights from what we already know about the chief schedule is we play at Buffalo. So we're going back to Buffalo, Jason. Ooh, that's fun.
Starting point is 00:35:24 If it's a Monday night game, you're going to get your face. You're going to get your face at work. I probably ESPN might not let me do that on a Monday night game, but they don't. They must not want their ratings to go through the fucking roof. Thursday night, Thursday night, though. Thursday night, I could do it. I do want to go back to Buffalo without the Chiefs or Eagles playing them just because I want to be fully Buffalo.
Starting point is 00:35:50 It was a dude. It's incredible. You're going to find out you're going to get an opportunity to go and experience what I love. I love the experience being there. I love the hostile environment like that. No, you have no idea what it's like in them stands at the big tree in. It's going to engulf you. You're going to love the way you look at Buffalo before the game.
Starting point is 00:36:09 I guarantee it. The Chiefs also play in Cleveland. I'd love to go to that game. We'll see what day that's on. Yeah, Cleveland, baby. Believer and get to go home playing the dog pound. I remember my first game ever playing in Cleveland. I actually went to there.
Starting point is 00:36:24 Yeah, I actually scored in the dog pound twice. And it was a welcoming home of birds just being flipped off to me, just fucking right to my grill. And I was just like, man, I've always dreamt of this. Thanks, Cleveland. I love you guys too. And I didn't't obviously I respected it and I still fucking
Starting point is 00:36:49 love Cleveland. And I'm just ecstatic that I get another chance, hopefully get another chance to play in their stadium and in front of the hometown crowd, man. It's gonna be awesome. I remember that game you guys, Kareem hunted just signed in Cleveland. No, he signed in KC. He was still he was with us. Kareem had I think three touchdowns. That's what it was. Yeah, I'm pretty sure. I remember him balling out.
Starting point is 00:37:13 Yeah, we us together. We had like four or five touchdowns to Cleveland kids running it up on the brownies, baby. Got it. Got to love that as Cleveland fans, man. No doubt. Shout out to the Browns, man. No doubt. Shout out to the Browns, man. We love you guys. I'm always cheering for you. But for that game, it's on a popping baby.
Starting point is 00:37:32 All right. Now, Jason, you got your first assignment for Monday Night Football. Now that we've announced that you're going to be on the desk with SVP Ryan and Swagu. Yeah. Doing the first Monday night game. Is it in? It's in San Fran. You're going all the way West Coast for your first gig. That'll be a good matchup. First day on the job. I'm going all the way six hours to San Francisco. Dude, I'm excited. Little Purdy versus Rogers, man. Well, that's the thing. Aaron's back and healthy. Anybody that watched the Jets last year, I mean, their defense was ridiculously good.
Starting point is 00:38:10 So I'm curious to see what they look like with Aaron at the helm, being the player that he is. Sam Fran has been the top of the NFC for five, six years now. They've always been up there. And Salah is going back to kind of where he was right before he went to the Jets with Shanahan, a little reunion. Oh, that's a good point. Yeah.
Starting point is 00:38:31 Hell yeah. I think it's a great first matchup. It'll be an awesome game. A little Purdy versus Rodgers action. Yeah, man. Great way to start it off. Fuck yeah. I wonder how Rodgers feels because I think he hurt himself on the first Monday night,
Starting point is 00:38:46 right? I think he was hurt on Monday night and then he reenters on Monday night. Yeah, that's a good point. That's a good point. I'm sure he's just excited to get back out there. I mean, he's I don't think he cares. Jason, now that you're officially a talking head, give us your keys to the game real quick. Just rip it.
Starting point is 00:39:04 Just rip it. Just rip it. First thing comes to mind. Rip the keys of it. I mean, I think for the Jets, they got to stop down, stop the run. I think whenever I think of a Shanahan offense, I think of if you stop the run and you make them be one dimensional, it really hinders the strengths of that offense. It's all built on misdirection, motions, and predicated on run and play action. Okay.
Starting point is 00:39:25 So if you force Brock Purdy to be a drop back passer, that's your best hope, even though Brock Purdy proved a little bit, especially at the end of last season, that he can operate as a drop back passer. So they got something really good going on there at San Fran. But I think that's the biggest thing. From the Jets, stop the run, that neutralizes the play action and a lot of things they like to do and the misdirection off of it. If I am San Fran, yeah, I think you are trying to just stop Aaron Rodgers. The Jets have a great running attack, but Rodgers coming back, being fresh, if he can be anywhere
Starting point is 00:39:58 closer to the quarterback that he has been in the past, obviously one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. I think that's what I'm looking forward to seeing the most. If Rodgers can execute, I think the Jets are going to be really, really dangerous this year. Like a fucking pro. How do you like that one, Jets Jake? Like a fucking pro, you talking head, you little muppet. And here we go, ladies and gentlemen.
Starting point is 00:40:22 That's Jason Kelsey as a, as a broadcaster. I love it. And one last thing, uh, about the NFL schedule before we move on here, Tom Brady is making his broadcasting debut in Cleveland, Brady's first game in the booth, the week one matchup between the Cowboys and the Browns boys versus the Browns. I actually liked that match. That'd be a fun one.
Starting point is 00:40:43 How do we think Tom will do in the booth? Fantastic. Because it's fucking Tom Brady. Yeah, he's going to do fucking great. He's the greatest quarterback of all time. He's going to be able to share his insight, what he thinks about the game live. Like he's going to be sharing what was going on in his head while he was playing. Yeah. And he's going to be doing that for everybody to listen to. I fucking can't wait to listen to Tom Brady called games and he's going to kill it. And the fact that he's doing it in Cleveland to start off, sucks that he's doing a Cowboys game. I mean, who wants to watch one of those? Me.
Starting point is 00:41:15 I think I'll, I can't wait to hear what Tom sounds like, hear what he says about different situations, his analysis, especially on the quarterback position. But I mean, on everything, it's going to be awesome. Yeah. I love my guy, Greg Olson. They kind of did him dirty over there in Fox. But I mean, it's Tom Brady. What can you do? Right. You know, just sometimes just got to do your thing. And Greg does a fucking tremendous job. He called the he called our Super Bowl game. And he's fucking fantastic doing that. And yeah, I try not to be biased against the commentators and the like color guys. But I think Greg is I mean, he's phenomenal at it.
Starting point is 00:41:52 He always you could tell he makes it a point to really know what he's talking about. Yeah, and teach and teach the game. Well, he's a son. I didn't know. I found out I mean, maybe last year, but his dad was a coach. You. So you can tell, like he thinks about the game not only as a player, but he has that type of mindset in him. Yeah. Also, I feel like a tight end. And you would know this, like it's interesting to see which guys go into color in what positions they play, because obviously you think about the game
Starting point is 00:42:20 in a relative manner to what you were doing on the field as a player sometimes, where Greg has this beautiful like he was raised by a coach, so he thinks about the game from a coaching perspective, but then he played tight end. And tight end, you have to be involved in all of it, right? Like even more so to an extent than the quarterback does. The quarterback has to be involved in all of it. The tight end, you're involved in not only all the passing concepts, the formations, all of it. You're also involved in all the run schemes, all the blocking. So I think he's got a beautiful blend of just knowledge and experience to unleash when he's
Starting point is 00:42:56 calling games. It's a joy to watch Greg call games or listen to it. It's my motherfucking dog. Yeah. Yeah. So Fox, you got two great ones, man. And again, we will probably go more in depth to the NFL schedule next week after we see and they release who all the opponents are and where we're playing them and when we're playing them. So yeah, I think the schedule officially comes out tomorrow, if I'm not mistaken. Yes. So literally the day we release this podcast. So yeah. So this might be a little bit dated. Sorry.
Starting point is 00:43:27 Sorry. You're going to have to wait a week for all of our other expert analysis on all this stuff. But yeah, it's just our excitement for who the Chiefs got, maybe this role. Wednesday at 5 p.m. to be specific. Thank you, Brandon. All righty. Non-schedule related NFL news coming at you.
Starting point is 00:43:45 The NFL versus NBA player debate that we started last season on this show is back. NBA veteran Austin Rivers claimed that there were 30 NBA players that could play in the NFL right now, and you can't do the same for NFL players in the NBA. 30? I feel you can find 30 guys that are talented enough for sure to play in the NFL. 30 is a stretch brother. Did you see Ryan's stance on this? I haven't, no. He's essentially saying like the mentality that people have in the NBA is much different than the NFL. And he questions whether NBA mentality driven players would be able to play in the NFL. And I think it's a fair point. I just think that there's a lot of NFL players
Starting point is 00:44:25 that really aren't as tough as maybe would be portrayed to be, especially like certain positions, like no offensive receivers, but like not everybody's Heinz Ward coming across and laying a block over the middle. Like there are plenty of guys that just catch a ball really well and jump high. I also think that the majority of them are though,
Starting point is 00:44:42 it's just the nature of the occupation. Yeah, it is what it is. I mean. Everybody brings up Draymond Green's clip at Michigan State. That's so unfair. We talked about this the other day. That's so unfair.
Starting point is 00:44:57 That was his first fucking day. First day! Like give the guy like a week at least to work on some technique or line him up off the ball. Has anybody even taught him how to get off of press? Like, when we're like our first days. Like give the guy like a week at least to work on some technique or line them up off the ball. Has anybody even taught him how to get off a press? Like when we're like our first days, our first days in the NFL, they don't even allow you to press.
Starting point is 00:45:13 Dude, he doesn't know the snap count. The DB jumped the fuck out of it and got up into his chest. Of course it was a bad rep for him. I'm not buying any of this. We know this for fact. If there was one guy in the NBA that was tough enough, it would be Draymond Green. You know what I mean? That's not the scenario there.
Starting point is 00:45:32 The scenario there would be whether or not he'd be fluent enough to be able to run routes, bend because typically that most NBA guys can't bend and just are different athletes are not asked to get low and play with leverage. It's just it's just a completely different game. It's the reason why when Michael Jordan switched over to baseball, his trainer said, we got to turn you into a completely different athlete, you have to be able to, to work with the ground where an NBA you're almost like working in the air more than you're on on
Starting point is 00:46:01 the in a sense. Obviously, I'm exaggerating a little bit, but it is what it is. Different athlete that you have to become and not everybody can bend. Not everybody can play with levers and everybody can can play with the you know that that that mentality to you know, stick your face in the fan. Not everybody's willing to do that. Yeah, it's going to be a debate that will never that will never actually get fucking proven right or wrong. But I don't know, I got I got faith in NFL players being able to go over to the NBA. I have zero faith in that. I do have zero faith in that. I think if there's one that definitely is an easier transition, simply for the fact that there's
Starting point is 00:46:41 more positions, and there's more spots, it's NBA to NFL. Like not even, not even saying how talented guys are, athletic they are. But what are we, what are they going to play? What is an NBA player translating to becoming? Is he, he's got to be either a what a wide out a tight end or wide out and tight end are the easiest ones. I think that if you gave them enough time, you could take a really big long guy
Starting point is 00:47:05 and teach them how to rush a passer. Like, let's be honest, that's not that hard. You're kind of basically already doing that when you're juking somebody to get to the basket anyways. Like there are similarities in like steps and things like that. So, I mean, obviously you're using your hands different and the offensive player is using their hands.
Starting point is 00:47:23 It's not the same. You put Zion on the fucking D line. That's what I'm saying. You might have another hundred million dollar contract. Miles Garrett is the freakiest player I've ever seen in pads at defensive end. There are a lot of Miles Garrets in the NBA. A lot? Yeah.
Starting point is 00:47:39 There are a lot of big dudes that are ridiculously explosive. Now can they bend as well as Miles? OK, that's I'm not saying that they would be as good as Miles. Miles, you're also one of the things I know you're not saying that. I'm just saying just pure athleticism. I don't know, man. That dude is the only power and explosive to be to be able to bend the way he does. I don't know. All right. Fair enough.
Starting point is 00:48:03 Like I said, this shit will never get answered. You'll be able to contradict and say whatever you want about it. But I don't know. I don't think it needs to be answered. I think I'm more with Austin Rivers and I am with anybody else saying that NFL players I'm out on there's 30 players right now. They could play in the NFL. I'm out on that.
Starting point is 00:48:21 I agree with that just because it's it's taken a long time. Like, it'd be hard at this point in their careers, especially 30 good NBA players, the type of talent that we're talking about to restart their careers and kind of get it going and play in the NFL. I think I can take Lebron James. You can put him up off the ball. Who's saying? Line him up off the ball so that you can't get a good jam on him. And within weeks, he'd be one of the most dominating
Starting point is 00:48:52 red zone threats in the game. Like who's gonna go up and get a ball better than LeBron James in the NFL? Nobody. That's all I'm saying. That's a good point. But I don't know. It is LeBron James.
Starting point is 00:49:03 Is this true? I'm picking a very talented man. But I feel like you could do similar things with Westbrook with other guys that are just like that's too. They can jump through the gym. They're physically impressive, like athletes. I mean, have a rundown on kickoff. I mean, I feel like there's enough six, seven guys in the NFL that play D-line that could fucking bang in the post. Name somebody that could bang in the post. Chris Jones.
Starting point is 00:49:32 Travis. I love Chris. I've seen him play basketball. He's also not six, seven. Put me in there. I'll fucking bang. You guys aren't six, seven. He's bigger than me.
Starting point is 00:49:40 I'm six, five. You guys are the same height pretty much. Let's not act like he's six, seven. Chris is not six, seven. He's six, four, seven. He's six, five, six, seven. He's six, five, six, seven. He's six, five, 6'7". He's bigger than me. I'm 6'5". You guys are the same height pretty much. Let's not act like he's 6'7". Chris is not 6'7". He's 6'4", 6'5". He's listed at 6'6". All right. I digress. Like I said, this will never be fixed. All right. Well, Chris Long, JJ Watt, Shannon Sharp, we're sure to let Austin Rivers know that no NBA players
Starting point is 00:50:05 are tough enough for the NFL. I disagree with that. I think that there are definitely NBA players that are tough minded. The fact that they flop, the reason they do that is because it's encouraged. I don't buy that that's a reason that they can't play in the NFL. Could Secretariat play in the NFL? I don't know that he passed the drug test, but he's certainly athletic enough to I Am I I hear I hear where they're coming from. That's definitely a big question is will they are they willing? To take a hit every single time they get the ball and show up every single week and do that Are there are there more NHL players that could play in the NBA than NBA players that could play in the NHL?
Starting point is 00:50:58 The NHL might be the only league that has more players that could transition over to the NBA than the NBA could transition Into theirs. There's no way you don't think that that not a single player in any of the major sports is gonna go right now and go start playing in the NHL. It's not happening. No, it's not happening. It's too skill driven. I thought you were saying NHL to NBA. That's not happening either. I'm just saying some of those guys are pretty like Zedeno Charles. Like 6'8". He could bang in the post. He's 6'11". He is enormous. Yeah. He's a big man. Zedeno Charles probably could have played in the NBA. I want to see him shoot a jump shot. Just we're just talking about 6'7". He's just. Yeah. He's a big man. He's an angel. Charles probably could have played in the NBA. I want to see him shoot a jump shot. Just we're just talking about six, seven. He's just rebounding and boxing out.
Starting point is 00:51:30 He's just rebounding. Six, seven is a small is a shooting guard in the NBA now. Oh, I thought you're saying six or seven. The guy off the bench. My bad. Okay. Sorry. Sorry. My bad. My bad. I bet there's some NHL players that probably could have gone into major league baseball. There's definitely some that probably could have played in the NFL, they would have done that with their career way.
Starting point is 00:51:47 Great ski was a baseball player. He was he was about all I got for you though. Let's keep this thing moving. Cool. Shout out to all the NBA players.

And no matter what you and your kids are getting up to do this summer, Uncrustables are the perfect on the go snack for all the best activities like summer camp, days at the pool, and for us, trips down the shore.
Starting point is 00:56:39 All right now, Uncrustables are also great for kid sports when parents get put on team snack duty. That's right.

France it was fun it was a blast I um I had a blast at Tay's show um her new rendition of the era's tour, I suggest everybody go see it. It has her new tortured Poets department. A few songs, a handful of those
Starting point is 00:57:52 songs in the new show, which means there's a new segment and new lights and new like dancing and new everything to the fucking show. So I suggest everybody get out there and see it is absolutely unbelievable. I enjoyed every bit of it. And sure enough, I got to see a few familiar faces. Connor Barwin was up there, one of our favorite teammates of all time. Oh yeah, CB. CB was up there, had some fun.
Starting point is 00:58:18 He just happened to be out in Paris visiting his team actually in Italy and then came over to France right afterwards. Trieste. Yes, Trieste. And shout out to Trieste for advancing into the playoffs out there. And then I got to see Gigi and Bradley. Bradley Cooper, man. BC. Big Coop. We were all in the suite having a blast. How was that? They're amazing. Did you talk about the Eagles?
Starting point is 00:58:41 Of course. Bradley Cooper is a huge Eagles fan. And he got to see mom. He got to see mom. He was opening a restaurant in, I believe in New York, I forget where exactly it is. But shout out to BC. And they were doing a fun presentation or a fun event for the ladies and mom pulled up and so did Miss Cooper, Bradley's mom. Nice. And a bunch of familiar faces as well. But yeah, shout out to them. And on top of that, it was just, it was an all around lovely night. I bet it was. You're now up to five concerts that you've seen. You've been to Kansas City, Argentina, Australia, Singapore, and now Paris. How does Paris compare to all of these other wonderful shows? Dude, that was, I mean, I don't know if they're just getting better or if I just keep forgetting
Starting point is 00:59:27 how they are. I watched videos. It looked way more like it was in there. And I'll tell you what, Kansas City showed out. Argentina was unbelievable. Australia, they party with the best of them and they celebrate with the best of them. Those three were unbelievable. Singapore was so unique and so fun. And then Paris was just, it was on a whole nother level, man.
Starting point is 00:59:50 And I'm just, I'm happy for everybody that's in the Ares tour, that's performing from the dancers to the, to the, you know, the band and obviously Taylor that it just looks like they're having so much fun up there and they're absolutely killing it. And they're putting on a show that, that, you know, you won't get anywhere else. Well, you got caught pulling an Ed Kelsey move here, taking a video with your flash on. What are you doing, Trav? You're supposed to be better than this.
Starting point is 01:00:14 I was doing what? You know, the settings on the camera, if it's dark, it's going to automatically put the flash on. I don't understand what so I was just trying to get some good you know, some good video some good memories. I don't give a damn. You probably got great video that flash makes a big difference. Yeah, that's the best. 1000 feet.
Starting point is 01:00:34 Did I get clowned for that? Sorry. You were also seeing dapping up a fan of yours wearing your jersey. Yeah, saw him at the Louis Vuitton store out there in Paris. Oh really? Yeah. Yep. They had a green new heights hat on as well as a Chiefs 89 Jersey, the 89 being significant to 1989.

The wrap up this episode with some no dumb questions because there's no such thing as dumb questions, just dumb people. Unfortunately, no dumb questions is brought to you by Smuckers.
Starting point is 01:02:07 Oh, Smuckers Uncrustable, the best part of the sandwich. That's right. Sure is. From user rambiorose36. Ramble on Rosa. There you go. One of the Utah NHL team name choice is the Yeti. How do you guys feel about the list of names and what would you like the new NHL team name to be called? So yeah, Utah
Starting point is 01:02:35 is getting an NHL team if you guys didn't know this and one of their team choice names is the Yetis, which is pretty fucking cool. I think it's a great mascot. I think it is a great name for Utah, knowing that they're up in the mountains over there. And they probably had a few Yeti sightings here and there. Oh, no doubt. Sam squanches?
Starting point is 01:02:57 Definitely. The NHL is letting fans vote on the Utah team name. Utah Eddie is an option. Utah Yeti? The one thing I don't like about is that it's not plural. Like when I think of animal names, they're always plural names. Like, I've never heard of an animal singular name. I can't think of one off the top of my head. Like it's always like it should be like the Yetis, right? Are they doing it like octopi where Yeti is a plural form of yet. Cacti. Yeah. Yeah, I don't know. It's a good point. I think it should be the Utah Yetis.
Starting point is 01:03:33 If they were if they're going for it. I do love the Yetis or the Yeti. The Utah Yeti. It's great. You're right though. It does sound like it needs an S. It needs to be Yetis. It's wrong. It's Utah Yetis. It's not the Chicago Bear. It's not the Philadelphia Eagle. It needs to be the Utah Yetis. What's the other word for Yeti? Sasquatch. The Utah Sasquatch? Abominable Snowmen.
Starting point is 01:04:03 You can do that. That's a long ass fucking name. You can do, there's Sasquatch, Abominable snowmen, Yeti, there's also another one that's like specific to... A certain region? Yeah. Oh my gosh, what's it called? I don't know.
Starting point is 01:04:18 The options to choose from are the Frost, the Utah ice, Utah powder, the Utah Mountaineers don't love it. The Utah free powder is weak. I like Mountaineers powders week powder reminds me of that. What was that movie with a really pasty white guy? It's called powder. That's what that terrifying movie. It has a place in my mind that I don't love. Yeah, can't forget it. Fuck Bullion. Black diamonds, the Utah black diamonds. Don't love that the Utah blast, the Utah
Starting point is 01:04:51 caribou, the Utah blizzard swarm, the Utah swarm, the Utah hive outlaws, getty, the squail squall, squall, the fury, the glaciers, Canyons, Utah Canyons, it's got a kind of a ring to it. It doesn't strike fear in anybody though. The Utah Venom, why would it be that? And HC, which stands for hockey club. That is so wack.
Starting point is 01:05:20 Get that weak shit out of here. Don't start doing this bullshit. Don't do this. FC stuff in hockey. Don't do that. I'm out on that. I'm start doing this bullshit. FC stuff in hockey. I'm out on that. Hockey has got some of the best mascots and jersey designs out there. Don't start bringing this HC bullshit. Not just some of the best, the best.
Starting point is 01:05:35 Literally the best. Out of these, who are you going with? I like one specific. First of all, I love the Utah Yeddies. I think that's a great name. That, god damn, that's a, and it's a good ring, yeah. It's really good. I think it's a little childish for a hockey team.
Starting point is 01:05:51 I like the Utah Outlaws. Outlaws, I don't like it because I don't know that has anything to do with Utah. Like, I guess it does, because it's like the walk, it's like part of the West. Yeah. But I don't think the Outlaws, when I think of Utah, I think of Mormons, I think of the opposite of Outlaws. I think about pretty much the most law abiding citizens on the
Starting point is 01:06:08 planet when I think of Utah. You must not know. Yeah, I must not know. The outlaws right next to all those jazz players in Utah. I kind of dig Utah Frost or Utah ice. Like it's, I think I see what they're going for with those. It's just so simple though. It's just so simple. Blizzard is pretty good. Squall is too weak. It's gotta be, it can't be a winter Squall. Glaciers, Utah glaciers, Glacier National Park,
Starting point is 01:06:40 I think is partly in Utah and Montana. What do you think of the mammoths? The Utah mammoths? I mean, I dig it. It's too hard to put an S on the end of a th though. Mammoths. The Utah mammoths. It feels weird when these are all singular. Like I don't, maybe I just can't when I think of an animal needs to be plural. I don't know why. It doesn't fit in my brain being a singular animal. Utah, I think you guys just got to keep digging. I don't love any of these. I'm kind of on board with Yeti and outlaws.
Starting point is 01:07:11 I'm on board with Yetis. I'm on board with the Utah. Ooh, how about we combine two? The Utah ICE outlaws. Now we got, that's a... Yeah. I can get behind that now. And that does it for No Doubt Questions, Now we got, that's a, I can get behind that now.
Starting point is 01:07:25 Fuck. And that does it for No Dumb Questions, brought to you by Smucker's Uncrustable. Good luck to you Utah hockey fans. Your new team is, who knows what it's gonna be called, but I know it's pretty exciting getting a pro sports team added to the city, so have fun with that, guys.
