See fueleconomy.gov for more details. True story. I try not to offend people over food.

I guess I don't mind defending you if you're a sports fan of a team that I'm criticizing because I don't take sports seriously. But man, I take food seriously. That's cute, Jay. Gotta be careful what I say here on the show. Always listening.

I asked producer Jay, what's the new open about? And I said, can you give me a hint? Food was all he would tell me. That was designed to throw me off the scent. That's a pretty good hint thinking back. No.

Oh no. We talk about food so much on the show. How was I supposed to narrow it down just based on food? It was a hint. Yes, it was something like that.

As long as there's food. It was chicken. It was a chicken foot in my soup. I wish I had taken a photo. I did not, of course. At that time, we didn't all take photos of our food. That would be 2009? 2009. My first overseas humanitarian trip. And it was in the Andes Mountains in Ecuador, two miles above sea level. And I was warned ahead of time, there'll be a chicken foot in your soup.

Just be ready. And so I did not blanch. I did not make any faces.

I managed to keep a pretty impressive poker face. But then I also offered it to someone else who was sitting next to me in Ecuadorian, someone who was local. They don't get three solid meals a day necessarily.

Not in a lot of third world countries or poorer parts of the country. So the person that I offered it to was thrilled to eat it. Well, you don't really eat it.

You gnaw on it. Awesome. I made his day. Sounds like a great thing.

While not offending any Ecuadorian hosts. That was the right move in that situation. The part that's interesting is the soup was actually really good. I love salt. So it's very salty. It didn't have a lot in it, right?

So they just kind of throw a few vegetables from the garden in it. But you got to be careful about that because a lot of times when you go, well, Americans travel to other countries, if they wash their vegetables in their water, it can have the type of bacteria that our bodies react to violently. Later in that trip, by the way, that was middle of the week. Later in that trip, I ate undercooked chicken and got salmonella. Worst week of my life. So thankfully I ate on the last day we were in Ecuador and it was about two hours and I realized something was horribly wrong.

Like you know when you can tell your stomach is something's wrong. And so I ate the chicken. We had it offered to us by this little bitty church. It was just in a home. It was like seven or eight people and they invited us to stay for dinner on Friday evening. And so we did, but nothing was ever too hot or too cold because that's just not how they cook their food and they don't have ice. And so whether it was them washing the vegetables, I'm pretty sure it was the chicken because I was violently ill. Whether it was them washing the vegetables or undercooking the chicken, it was hard to tell because nothing was hot and you really didn't know if it was fully cooked.

It wasn't cold, but it wasn't hot. So it was hard to know. But about two hours later, two hours after I ate that meal, I could feel my insides. Something was wrong and I just knew it was coming. I didn't know how long it was going to take.

I didn't know what was going to happen, but I could tell something was wrong. So we traveled that night. So we left the Andes Mountains where we were and we took a bus.

We took a two-hour bus drive back to Quito because we were staying at a hotel overnight and then leaving on a flight from Quito the next morning. So the whole time we're on the bus, I just know something's wrong. But salmonella can take up to 72 hours to manifest. It's a period where it kind of rears its ugly head is 24 to 72 hours. So it's not necessarily something that you happen right away.

But I didn't know it was that. I just thought, maybe I'm going to throw up. Something's wrong with my stomach. I wake up in the middle of night in this hotel room in Quito and I'm going to be sick. I have to get to the bathroom. So I get to the bathroom, just awful. I nearly laid down on the bathroom floor because it was cool and I was so hot. I was running a fever. I had chills.

So it does manifest itself initially like the flu. And so I get out of the bathroom. I'm trying to struggle to get back to bed. But because of these flu-like symptoms, I'm dizzy and I black out and thankfully fell forward.

I was standing at the foot of my hotel room bed, fell forward onto the bed, but blacked out and wake up who knows how many minutes later. I'm laying in that same position. I'm in a cold sweat. It was brutal. Then I have to fly home like that. So the flu-like symptoms continued.

I was able to go pretty slow through the airport, but I had to fly home like that. And I remember, this is a true story. I swear I'm not making this up. I was so out of it. I wasn't eating any food, obviously. They brought food and the sight of food made me also want to throw up. I think I lost seven pounds in three days.

It was mostly water weight, but I didn't eat for a good three days. Anyway, on the plane ride home, they gave us these bag lunches. So we went from Quito to Miami and they gave us these bag lunches. In my state that I was in, in my flu-like state, I accidentally put my phone in the bag lunch and threw it out.

So then we get to Miami and we're gathering our belongings. And again, I'm really slow to get off the, I'm near the front of the plane, but I'm not moving. So people are walking by me. I can't find my phone. I look in the overhead bin. I look in my bags.

I can't find it anywhere. And then it dawns on me. It's gotta be in the bag I just threw out, right? So I start climbing over seats to get to the back. So the stewardess or sorry, flight attendant says that they've already thrown the trash out, but you're welcome to go look through the trash, of course. So I start going against the flow of traffic. I climb over seats to get back to the back of the plane. And there's seven garbage bags that are sitting there at the back. And I'm not kidding you, Jay.

I prayed. I'm like, Lord, I can't go through all of these garbage bags. If the phone is in there, I need to know where it is now. I open up one bag, white lunch bag on the very top of the one bag.

There's my phone. I swear to you, seven garbage bags. The first one I open up and my lunch bag is sitting on the very top. The garbage bag was full of lunch bags. That's all it was because the flight attendants had gone through and collected all the white lunch bags. Mine was on top.

Now keeping in mind, I was at the front of the plane and they had walked through the plane and somehow still my lunch bag was on top. There's something else at work there. Yes, there was.

Yes, there was. And the fact that I managed to make it home, but it was awful travel. I had salmonella. I couldn't eat a full meal for seven days.

I tried. It went horribly wrong. Like three days later, I was feeling better, but my stomach still wasn't having it. So I tried to eat something other than white rice or a piece of bread three days later and my stomach revolted again. Salmonella has got to be among the worst, just awful.

Have you ever had it? I've had food poisoning before. I'm not sure if it was salmonella. It's salmonella.

It's possible. I remember I had it actually during the Super Bowl 2003 with Patriots, Panthers. I remember that was the one year that my family, we had a big party for Super Bowl. We had a bunch of family over. I had friends over.

Couldn't enjoy a single minute of the game. I was in my bed in the fetal position. I had friends. They were all having a good time hanging with my uncles, my family. I was upstairs. Where's Jay?

Where's Waldo? Yeah, so I remember that I knew nothing about salmonella, but started Googling and reading about it, and yet the flu-like symptoms, the longer ingestion process, and then it takes seven days to clear, and it was, it was rough. So from that point on, I went to Ecuador again the following year. I went to Africa the year after that. I did not eat meat outside the country. I refused to eat any meat, so I would go for the week in Ecuador without any meat.

Same thing in Africa. I was there for two weeks and didn't, really didn't eat much at all. I was so nervous.

When I finally got to Cuba then in, I think my first trip was in 2016. I was hesitant to eat there too, but then ultimately was so hungry that I had to eat something. Thankfully, the family was cooking for us, and we could, yeah, the women were great cooks, so there was no issue there, but yeah, just one of the worst, like, international travel stories. No, it's true. It's true. You really got to be careful with what you eat and what they cook with.

Right, right. How they, in Africa, I remember we were out in the bush where there was no electricity, and they served us a potato salad with mayonnaise, and I could smell it, but it had not been refrigerated, and it was, I couldn't. I didn't want to offend them, but I couldn't eat it. Sounds disgusting.

And from that point on, the smell was so ripe that from that point on, I have not been able to eat mayo. Like, and get this, I never cook raw chicken myself. I don't handle it. I'll order it in a restaurant, but I cannot cook it myself. It is. I do hate it. There's fallout. Absolutely. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence. So all of that to say, I try not to offend people, but I'm not going to eat your chicken foot. We're live from the Rocket Mortgage Studios.

You need to know what it takes for a home to fit your budget and your family. Rocket can. So yeah, we've been adding it up here to piggyback on what I was saying before the top of the hour. 11 of 16 AFC teams have used multiple quarterbacks because of injuries or ineptitude. Now that could be for a short stint. It could be a situation where a quarterback missed one game or missed part of a game to get treated for an injury or checked out for concussions, something like that. But we've had more drastic situations. Certainly with Miami, they started three different quarterbacks before they got back to two at Tango Veloa, and yet they're still at eight and four. And they had just won five games in a row. With Tua returning, he'd been on fire. And then, of course, they had the rough game last week against the Niners that San Francisco defense will do it to you.

Tyreek Hill has all the confidence in the world. His quarterback is bouncing back with a big performance this weekend. I've been fortunate enough to be able to play with one of the best quarterbacks in this league, and you know, we all have bad games.

We're all a human and, you know, we all go through certain stuff, man. And, you know, my message to him is, you know, just come out refocused, you know, and a lot of people will forget about what you did the last game when you go out here and throw for six touchdowns or something crazy, man, and it'll all be forgotten. So, I mean, I've dropped crazy amount of passes in my career, but my whole focus and the way that my parents raised me is, you know, you can't be great and dwell on the pass or whatever. You know, you got to be able to move on. I would agree with Tyreek on that point is you're going to fail.

If you're going to be great at anything, you're going to fail almost as much as you succeed until it becomes second nature to you. In the case of Ty, he has 1,379 yards receiving five touchdowns. Kind of a crazy disparity, right?

But they do have a lot of guys who could score. But Jay, here's my question. When he says he was fortunate enough to play with one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, is he referring to Patrick or is he referring to Tua? See, I thought that same question, Tua, at first. I think he's talking about Tua in this situation. Do you?

At first, I thought he was talking about my home and saying like, I think he's talking about Patrick. Can I hear it one more time? Yeah, absolutely.

Ask and you shall receive. I've been fortunate enough to be able to play with one of the best quarterbacks in this league. And, you know, we all have bad games. We're all human. And, you know, I think he's talking about Patrick. And it's not a slight on Tua, but it's the tense that he uses.

I've been fortunate enough. I don't know. I guess it could be either one. Maybe he purposely left it vague.

Maybe. I mean, he's done that before. He was the most accurate quarterback in the NFL. Right. So the Dolphins are a winning team, even though they've started three different quarterbacks.

Skylar Thompson, we just saw an appearance with him last week briefly. Again, we know about the AFC North and what they've been through. And Tyler Huntley is the latest QB to step in following Deshaun Watson last week when he played his first game in a Browns-Uni. In the AFC West, yeah, it's not necessarily the quarterbacks, but the offenses at times have sputtered the Chargers and the Broncos.

The Chiefs are still one of the best teams in the NFL, and that has a lot to do with the fact that Patrick has been healthy. In the NFC, we did the tally, and it's the same thing. It's 11 of 16 teams in the NFC who've also used multiple quarterbacks. And we're not talking about mop-up duty.

That does not include mop-up duty. So when the Bills blew out, who was their last victim? I think that was the Steelers. Well, the Steelers was a huge blowout, right? And they did bring in Case Keenum late in that game. So we've seen a couple of games in which quarterbacks have been spelled or removed from games because it's a blowout and coaches don't want their quarterbacks to get hurt or to be out there in situations where the game is already done. So we're not counting those. Between the AFC and the NFC, 22 of 32 teams have used multiple quarterbacks. Are you kidding me? That's nearly 75 percent. Two more and it will be 75 percent.

My mom was my math teacher in high school. That's the state of the NFL right now, and yet the number of quarterbacks that moved around in the offseason was supposed to prevent this. Nah. This is nutso, and yet it's become fairly commonplace, right? We don't even blink much anymore. Rookie quarterbacks, they come into the league more prepared, but it doesn't mean they're necessarily ready to lead a team. They're still a very steep learning curve, and yet teams throw them into the fire, throw them into the fire, throw them out there. It's always about not just the immediate, but down the road. Always. Life comes at you fast in the NFL. Also, Jeremy is really upset at you, Producer J, because you didn't include Steelers and Ravens in the poll.

Would you like to hear what he had to say? Always a great game no matter the QB. Just because Lamar ain't playing, that doesn't mean anything.

Throw records and players out the window every time because this is the best rivalry in the NFL today. All right. Jeremy is taking exception to your poll. Our poll. Our poll.

I'll take some responsibility. Sure, I don't really care if you don't like our options. We actually think it's cool that Twitter limits to four options when we do a poll because then it creates debate. So yes, take the poll on Twitter after our CBS or my poll, and right now we've got a pretty healthy race early on. We'll do QB news later this hour. Straight ahead though, this is kind of fun, I suppose, if you're a Rangers fan or a Phillies fan.

Jacob deGrom and Trey Turner being introduced to their new fan bases, and just to wrap up what was a fairly lively winter meeting session in San Diego, Dusty Baker, sentimental favorite, now has a World Series title. I know, laugh away. I'm in football mode, okay? It's December. I was gonna say that I'm laughing because I wasn't even thinking to correct you. I was like, yep, they did just win a Super Bowl.

The World Series manager, the reigning World Series winner, Dusty Baker, just good to hear from him a little bit again. All right, we're already midway through our third hour. That's how quickly it's going.

Second batter of the game, and the Dodgers take a one to nothing lead. Hungry for a taste of the most delicious audio of the night? You came to the right place. It's time for Bite Me with Amy Lawrence.

Here's Amy Lawrence. Thanks for hanging out with us. We are hurtling our way into a Friday morning, and I mean head long into a Friday. It's actually a big Christmas prep weekend for those of you who are behind, or maybe you're right on time. I have to finish decorating, and it's a big baking weekend for me. I was asking Craig Turner, who is the director of the show, to come up and talk to me about a baking weekend for me. I was asking producer Jay if he had any requests, and I've ultimately settled on five recipes, I think. Oh my gosh, my kitchen is going to look like a tornado ran through.

It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence, CBS Sports Radio. Baseball was hot and heavy on the stove this week. Speaking of baking, it was a lot of money. Did you hear 1.6 billion dollars were doled out, too? I think it was 18 guys.

Jay, if you want to confirm that you can, but I think that's the number. It was about a dozen and a half players for 1.6 billion dollars. All guaranteed money.

That's a lot of money. Jay's mouth just dropped open, so I surprised him with something he had not heard before. Trey Turner, one of those guys who gets a 300 million dollar deal over 11 years to sign with the Phillies, most recently with the Dodgers.

You hear the call there with Charlie Steiner on Dodgers Radio, so why go cross country and back to the NL East? We just pictured ourselves here. I pictured myself in this uniform.

She pictured living here and having family come and visit. We pictured playing with Bryce and Schwerber and a lot of those guys on the team now. Kevin Long, it just seemed like a lot of things added up. We were excited about it. This place is fun to play. I watched a lot of the playoff games and this place was rocking, so just a lot of things pointing this direction and we felt really comfortable and really happy and we're really excited about it. This is kind of cute, even as Trey Turner is getting introduced and has a giant smile up there on the dais with the Phillies brass. Bryce Harper says, Trey Turner, he's my favorite player in the league, not even close. So mutual admiration society, as Trey mentioned, some of the other all-stars and guys who were so critical in the Phillies advancing to the World Series and I wonder if that had something to do with it.

He can kind of see it, the fact that they're on the rise and should be able to build on last, well this year's, but last season's run to the World Series to the Fall Classic. But yes, 300 million dollars at the time. The 10th baseball player ever to sign a 300 million dollar deal. Aaron Judge piggybacked on that and actually leapfrogged him and became the 11th later in the week.

That was finalized on Thursday. Jacob deGrom doesn't get 300 million. He actually leaves the NL East and goes to Texas, but they are giving him five years and that's the big deal as a pitcher who is often injured and who is in his mid-30s. So why did he sign with the Rangers?

Getting on a call with C.Y. and Boach, you know, hearing the vision of what the Rangers want to do and ultimately getting to meet Ray and the vision here and bringing a World Series here. That's the goal, winning a World Series and these guys all had that same vision with the signings of Marcus and Corey and the moves they're making as far as taking those steps to make something great here and continue winning baseball games and making that not just a one-year thing but, you know, a goal for years. So Jacob deGrom becomes yet another huge free agent acquisition for them.

Remember they signed Marcus Simeon and Corey Seager last year to big deals. That was going to be their infield, their middle infield and it didn't pan out in terms of wins, but maybe it will this year by adding a third member of the triumvirate. But what about leaving the Mets, a place where he won Tucson Young awards? I spent the first eight plus years of my career with the New York Mets and, you know, I have to thank them for that. They'll always hold a special place in my heart, my wife's heart, my kids, you know, from ownership to my teammates there, you know, and the fans ultimately, you know, they made me feel welcome there.

They'll always hold a special place and they, you know, I wouldn't, I probably wouldn't be here today without them. So, you know, it's it's part of it but, you know, it's this is where we decided we wanted to be. Jacob deGrom is taking the extra years.

I have no problem with that. I understand that he maybe wanted to stay with the Mets or that was a nice idea though when the reports are that he wants to spend his off days in Florida and fly to the games as opposed to staying with the Mets all the time. You kind of wonder if that's an indication that he really didn't want to be in New York anymore. Maybe he wanted warmer weather.

Maybe he wanted to not pay the income tax on his salary. But I can't begrudge a guy who's in his mid-30s the extra years because it's guaranteed money. This is not the NFL where nothing's guaranteed except for your signing bonus and the year that you're in. Nah, these are fully guaranteed contracts and deGrom wasn't getting offered the extra years by the Mets. So I don't begrudge him that though it is going to be a little bit strange and I hope that the Rangers win. Otherwise, he may become irrelevant too. How often do we hear Marcus and Corey mentioned in this past season?

Not at all. Jacob deGrom does have a lot of injuries in his past and that was one of the concerns for the Mets. The goal is to go out there and make 30 plus starts every year.

You know like I said in the one in spring training was kind of a weird one a broken or stress reaction in my scap but once I came back felt great. So the goal is to make 30 plus starts for the next five plus years here. Jacob deGrom heading to the Rangers meanwhile Justin Verlander heading to the New York Mets to replace him but I think it's kind of fun to see him reunited with Max Scherzer because the two of them pitched together. Both saw young winners in Detroit and now they're back together in the Bronx. I almost said the Bronx for you to kill me.

In Queens, the Bronx is where the Yankees play. It's after hours here on CBS Sports Radio while we're talking about Justin Verlander. Could we quick use this Dusty Baker because Dusty obviously lost him though Justin was instrumental in helping the Astros win two World Series.

The first one pre-Dusty. Dusty finally got to see this Cy Young winner up close and personal. He's a man and I told him when season started I never the only guys that I've never managed Cy Young award winner and so at the end of the year when he got his Cy Young he says you know now he got one you know and you know he was a pleasure to manage because I knew what I was getting every day. He's probably gotten a little more humility since he got hurt and was out and you appreciate what you have now and then he has a little girl and that gives you a different outlook on life and you know I love it when I can go full bullpen day before he pitches full bullpen after day pitches and then he would stop all losing streaks and and and prolong winning streaks. Yeah incredible comeback season for one Justin Verlander. The way that he pitched in the wake of the Tommy John surgery at his age right so about to turn 40 or did he turn I think he he's still 39 right still 39 anyway he gets a two-year deal with the Mets and it'll be fun to see him on a different stage and who knows maybe he is the piece that pushes the Mets over the top the way that he pushed the Astros over the top by joining them in at the trade deadline so not quite mid-season but late season 2017 yeah yeah I know they were cheating it's after hours with Amy Lawrence CBS Sports Radio they weren't cheating under Dusty Baker and he finally earns a ring as a manager he'd come so close before sat down with MLB Network at the winter meetings in San Diego and they asked him whether or not that enormous milestone win had sunk in yet first thing I did was was pack the second thing I did was probably sign my contract and then I hightailed it back to California then unpacked so I'm just now uh feeling uh hey man we really did win this thing and uh you know I get back home everybody wants to have a party I don't want any parties you know I just want to just go home because you know when you're when you're gone for eight months you know you really really appreciate just going home and sitting down oh when I'm gone for a week I really appreciate being home and sitting down yes Dusty Baker still such an amazing capper to the season you don't have to love the Houston Astros but you have to respect what Dusty Baker was doing and know that he took a job that very few other managers wanted and he cleaned up he brought respectability he brought credibility he cleaned up that clubhouse and their reputation and now with just a handful of players left from the 17th season they're a different team but they're still a winner and he had a special moment when he got home to California that he was looking forward to following the world series first thing I did when I went home I went to the cemetery and uh you know my dad loved flowers uh raised flowers and my mom loved flowers and I visited my mom and dad and my mom died in January and I visited my brother and uh you know he's in the same cemetery so I was just there to say thanks and I know that they were with me spiritually and uh you know my dad you know he was believed in negative motivation sometime and my dad told me son I don't know if you know we lost in Anaheim in 2000 he goes man I don't know if you'll ever win one oh and that was on my mind so I'm like you know how are you looking out there ha there you go conversation with dad how do you like me now pops actually I understand that those kinds of conversations they can sound abrasive when you hear them but between father and son and family settings no doubt his dad was more proud of him and more supportive so good for you Dusty Baker that's amazing all right before we get to our update this is kind of funny a tale of two reactions as all of yankee's nation and really san francisco giants nation the rest of the nation too was waiting on erin judge's decision late on tuesday night into wednesday morning as the news breaks you get nester cortez who who actually was was he at court sided a nix game so he's courted out in a nix game and the news is still fresh and he gets to react to it on msg when a microphone gets forced in front of his face but speaking of microphones yeah kd didn't have the same reaction excited i mean so many emotions coming through i mean the guy held out he bet it on himself um and not a better feeling to have him as a teammate so i'm happy he's back and um i'm i'm ready for spring training kd non-basketball related question we got the yankee show coming up next on yes what's your reaction to erin judge's contract and him getting that i'm a national saying i really don't care about erin judge at all oh sweet who cares apparently he tried to clarify but i don't even care you had the opportunity right you can't even say hey that's awesome congratulations let me guess he was jealous be jealous that a the nationals haven't made a signing like that and b that the money is astronomical although in the nba contracts are guaranteed too and i don't think he can complain he signed a four-year contract extension uh going back last year so all right kd not feeling in a generous mood i suppose if i felt like it i could go look at his twitter and see what else he said but first impressions they die hard coming up a pair of storylines and headlines from the world of sports that are bigger than the show bigger than just

we'll reset then with thursday night football thanks for hanging out with us we're just scratching the surface of week 14 and we're asking you to choose the other game of the week i suppose we could say it was the final quarter of the week right just the the finish between the rams and the raiders the thrill of victory the agony of defeat we'll get to all of these sorted details and that's where the magic happens on amazon prime uh anyway so that's coming up at the top of the hour and then week 14 with some qb news you know how we love to frame some of your prep your cliff notes if you will through the eyes of our quarterbacks and those who talk about quarterbacks because we're obsessed with quarterbacks uh and and so it's been good it's been good to kind of litter in some of our story lines um really glad for the work that we've been able to accomplish this week we've had some challenging circumstances behind the scenes so one of those includes getting stood up after two hours by our Steelers player i don't think it was his fault not sure what happened but just yeah not everything goes according to plan ever really in live radio or in sports so i guess there's that it's after hours with amy lawrence on facebook and then on twitter a law radio so a couple of things but that we're making headlines outside the sports world even uh going back to i guess well i woke up to it so it would have been some time on thursday morning late morning uh we got the news that britney griner was on a plane home from russia i i can't even imagine how her family is feeling um i can't even imagine how she must be feeling i'm sure that there were times maybe even more than fleeting moments maybe there were long stretches where she wondered if she'd ever get out of there she'd ever be released she'd ever see the the u.s government come through in in what had been talked about for months which was this prisoner exchange and i'm not going to comment on the exchange itself that's not what i do here on the show um i have my opinion on um i have my opinion so do you but at the very basest human level she spent 10 months and potentially longer because she was sentenced to nine years incarcerated and detained for something so minor that in the united states in most places isn't even considered a misdemeanor anymore and i'm not saying that means she doesn't have to follow the laws i'm not saying that at all i wish that she had i wish that she had done two things number one heeded the state department's warning that you do not travel to russia like i wish she had done that this could have been avoided and i also wish that she hadn't tried to take her i guess it was marijuana whatever it was marijuana i don't even know the exact substance i just know that it was something that was against russian law and they were looking for ways to make an example of the united states right so she was an easy target and they used her and milked the situation for all it was worth unfortunately for the united states you know paid a heavy price for it but she is now home and was getting checked out in san francisco was apparently the destination so i'm happy for her i'm happy for her family again i can't even imagine being in her shoes and wondering if she would ever be released but those same emotions extend to this marine who is still being detained and jailed in russia his name is paul wayland and he's been there nearly four years and my heart breaks for him again i'm not making a political statement this has nothing to do with the government well it does but that's not where my comments are going my heart goes out to him and i've prayed for them both over the course of the last 10 months or so as her case got more and more attention and i hate that he was left behind again if you can try to put yourself in her shoes and think about the fear the terror this horrifying experience really feeling like she had no recourse she had to plead guilty she was stuck there it's not like the united states was going to rain down the the hell of our air force or our navy on on russia right we we weren't going to do that so it had to go through diplomatic channels and it took a long time but if you can imagine her emotions and those of her family i hope that you will continue to think about this u.s marine the soldier who has been there far longer and is going through all the same thing and and maybe even today is feeling more dejected and disheartened and depressed than ever because he wasn't part of the prisoner exchange so i do hope that we continue to think of him and i really hope the united states continues to fight for him too but i'm glad that she's home it's after hours with amy lawrence here on cbs sports radio another major headline that transcended the world of sports on thursday the u.s house of representatives released their final report this comes from the committee on oversight and reform that committee was investigating one daniel snyder soon to be former owner of the washington commanders we believe but according to this report and what was a congressional inquiry that lasted more than a year snyder quote permitted and participated in the team's long time toxic work culture right so he and these are all reports that we've heard in the past he tried to intimidate witnesses who might have been testifying in previous investigations and even when he went to congress or he went to the hearing and he testified he really refused to cooperate and so he was standing in the way of them doing their job with a which they do not look kindly on but overall we know the claims of harassment and abuse specifically against female employees but just in general a place to work where you didn't feel safe you didn't feel validated you were made to feel small you were treated poorly but i think many of us can recall situations where we've been in similar atmospheres and it sucks your work production drops you don't want to go to work morale suffers but this was permeated throughout the commander's organization prior to ron Rivera coming in prior to the changing of the guard this goes back to bruce allen as the general manager and that brings me to my next point so i don't think there's any huge surprise that this committee report would uncover and validate the previous findings the nfl had already investigated now they tried to keep that investigation private but they did suspend snyder for a year take away day-to-day operations and was it a 10 million dollar fine of the organization i think so in the eyes of the nfl this was a done deal but congress got involved it's high profile why not so the investigation really only validates what the nfl punished but also tried to keep under wraps as much as possible which didn't really work and now there's another nfl investigation that's taking place and snyder has seen the writing on the wall stubborn as he is has decided yes it's probably in my best interests i'm maybe lucky i'm not in jail maybe that's coming down the pike i better protect the family and and sell this this club and it will come up it it will result in a huge payday for the snyder family but this part is something that i whoa guess who leaked the information about john gruden guess who leaked those emails that got john gruden in hot water because of the language that he used and some of the topics the offensive nature of these emails remember they were the only ones that were leaked this entire nfl investigation somehow the gruden emails were the only ones that went public apparently it was the commanders who leaked those emails and i don't think it sounds like gruden wasn't the target i don't think he was the target but snyder was attempting to smear bruce allen and he was trying to get the information out and by doing that he releases a bunch of emails he leaks a bunch of emails somebody in the organization leaks a bunch of emails and they take down john gruden in addition to implicating allen so now we have the answer to that question and yet still so many more questions about snyder it's after hours with amy lawrence cbs sports radio how do we
