The Sultan of Sizzle. The Titan of Toastiness. The Kingpin of Kindling.

These are the admired ones. Those who've created the prime place to gather. They don't just have a backyard. They have the backyard because they know a Solo Stove Fire Pit is more than just the ultimate smokeless fire pit. It's a place where friendships are forged, football is revered, and food is enjoyed. Solo Stove. The perfect flame for the big game.

A Peanut Butter M&M's Production. In a world where Super Bowl winners get the world's admiration and a fancy ring, but the runners-up get nothing, one retired cop returns. That's one retired quarterback. Read the script.

Oh, sorry. One retired quarterback returns to claim what's his. Um, that's claim a ring with diamonds made from M&M's peanut butter, but you're on a roll. The Ring of Comfort.

Coming soon to a Super Bowl new you. And he's not the only one who's ever told me, but most personal, that when he was deployed in Afghanistan, his unit would listen to the show and it would give them a distraction, an escape, and a piece of U.S. and a piece of sports. And he said that's just basically all we had to listen to.

You were the only option. And then he said the rest of the guys in his unit are like, who would women know about sports? I love that. So good.

Anyway, he convinced them and they were convinced by the time their deployment was done. So yes, that was awesome. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio. I know there are still people out there who think a woman talking about sports is redonkulous, but we're out to change the minds one at a time. We've won so many of you over. My general rule is give me two weeks and you'll be hooked. Now you may be hooked because you hate me and you can't wait to hear what ridiculous thing I say next just to fuel your anger. Or you will actually find begrudgingly that you really like the show. Or you may become a P1, which is what we call diehard radio listeners who never miss, whether it's live or whether it's on the podcast. We have both options.

If you'd also like to check out our social media on Twitter, ALawRadio, also on our Facebook page, After Hours with Amy Lawrence. Now I did not put up a spot for tonight's question because I'm regurgitating it from 2015, but I suppose I could. In light of the fact that the United States will be hosting a World Cup in two years, I think it could not be a more perfect time to realize the dream that many Americans have.

Not all, of course, we don't agree on anything except for football in this country. But to have the United States men's national team, Americans, red, white, and blue, I believe, I believe that, I believe that we will win. Oh my gosh, I can't wait for the chance. I just can't wait for, what are they called? Colton, they have a name. What are the diehard soccer fans that show up at all the US events? They have a name. There's a name for them. I'll remember it.

It's a nickname. Anyway, just think about the atmosphere that we're going to see and hear in LA and then Seattle where the group stage games will be taking place. And then depending upon where the US heads after that because the Americans will make it out of the group stage, we could end up at... We.

It's a time, the only time in sports I say we. We could end up at Arrowhead. We could end up in Philadelphia. We could end up in, gosh, what are some of the other?

SoFi, back in SoFi again. So there's a decided west coast flair. How great would it be? US in Philly July 4th.

Oh, it would be phenomenal. That is America right there. Oh, that is, right.

It's America through and through. That would be an atmosphere. The tickets would be through the roof, of course, but it would be one that we would never forget. Quarterfinals at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough.

Also at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. So there are many different cities that are involved. It's just a matter of who gets the US games. Well, we know the US will start at SoFi and go to Seattle and then back to SoFi for its group stage. And right now ranked just outside of the top ten in the world. They've got a couple years to get ready.

Don't have to qualify. So there's that pressure that's off the US. And it is Greg Berhalter again having reunited with the men's national team after a sojourn, if you will, a very dramatic sojourn.

And the US team will train in Atlanta, which is also hosting a semifinal. This is going to be massive. What would it be like if the Americans actually won or even were in the final?

Oh, my gosh. The buzz in this country in the summer of 2026 would be like nothing we've ever felt. Again, because even with the Super Bowl and a third of our country watches the Super Bowl. Whether it's an online option and it's a CBS Super Bowl, so it's on Paramount Plus. Whether you watch it at a sports bar or you go to a party or you buy tickets and you head to Vegas this year.

Well, you can watch it in a bunch of different sportsbooks in Vegas. Wherever people watch, our population is roughly 330 million people in the United States right now. Well over 100 million watch the Super Bowl. It's a third of our country.

We agree on nothing else in the United States except for the NFL. The record numbers so far for the playoffs, the ratings are skyrocketing. Viewership numbers are skyrocketing. Generally, say going back five years, the championship weekend games, so AFC, NFC, were the only ones that would get over 50 million watching.

Even so, think about the percentage that is of our nation. But now we've got games in the wildcard round and in the divisional weekend that are 50 million or more. That's insanity. Again, that's the power of the NFL. That's why the NFL does not need Taylor Swift. So even as we head through Super Bowl week, it's one that we always know, right? In early, well now early February, used to be January, but now early February, if you're into the NFL, this is the week where the buildup becomes palpable and where half a million people descend on the host city, which is a first time for Las Vegas, right?

So that's crazy. Well that kind of buzz would be doubled, maybe even tripled, if the United States got close to winning a World Cup. So we've been to knockout stage before, of course.

Colton, what would it take, do you think, for the nation just go crazy? I mean, the games being in the United States and in Canada and Mexico is huge, but how far does the U.S. need to go for people to drop everything and do nothing but talk about and watch the U.S. men's national team? Probably the semis. People might get into it in the round of 16. I think they got a chance to do it. They have a legitimate shot at it. It's probably the best team they're going to place in the World Cup. All these guys, all these kids are going to be in their prime. All these kids are playing in Europe, so I mean, I think they have a legitimate shot at it.

Oh, it's awesome. It's awesome that they have, well, they've known they're going to host now for a couple of years, of course, but to be able to have two years on their own soil to get ready, to have Berhalter back in place, as Colton points out, it was a really young team last time, and now they're growing into this role, and they're dealing with pressure. They've played for their club teams. It's going to be very competitive, best of the best, and the stakes are going to be so much higher.

So you've got to have guys who are mentally tough as well as physically tough. It's different when it's across the world, and it's not only other side of the globe, but the hours when the team plays are upside down for a lot of the United States. Not for us! We get to watch them live! But for many people to have it in the United States, these will be can't-miss live matches, and we're going to see the ratings get a huge bump, a huge bounce, just from being here in the United States. And if Team USA can advance to, now I would tend to say quarterfinals, but if the USA can advance to the quarterfinals, then into the Final Four, oh my gosh. Again, more people will get on board than you've ever seen, even for the NFL.

It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio. So the question is, what sports moment do you want to witness in your lifetime? I did this topic on a show in 2015, and I remember it was 15 because it was right before American Pharoah won the Triple Crown, and that was number three on the list. We had not seen a Triple Crown in nearly four decades.

I'd never seen one at all, and so it was my number one on the list. I wanted to see one horse win the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness, and the Belmont. That's what I wanted, and we got it in 15.

So this show goes back to earlier in 15, so it would have been probably March or April of 15, because a couple months later, American Pharoah did in fact end the 37-year drought and win. And I remember I was not in the house that I have now, it wasn't even the town where I live now. I was living in this 400-square-foot apartment, a mother-in-law's apartment off the side of someone's house.

I had just moved here to the New York City area not that long before and was still trying to sell my condo back in Connecticut. It wasn't really settled, half my stuff in storage, blah, blah, blah. But this little bitty apartment I will never forget for this reason. I could not sit down. I stood in my living room in front of the TV. What living room?

It was a two-room apartment. I stood in front of the TV, and I was so nervous. I stood there, watched the pre-race, and it would pace around.

I was even praying. And so then as the race unfolded, and I just watch it again before the show, because I wanted to put myself back in that space, as the race unfolds and American Pharoah pulls away down the final stretch, and the call is amazing on NBC, I get chills. I cried over American Pharoah winning the triple crown.

It was just incredible, right? And so that we can check off the list. The next year, Cubs winning a World Series in 2016. So two of the top three we've seen. What else would you like to see happen in your lifetime in the world of sports? I'm wondering how come no one has said anything about the Detroit Lions? But why not the Lions?

They've gotten so close, right? They've gotten to the point where they are a legit championship contender after all these years, finally winning a playoff game, finally hosting a pair of playoff games at Ford Field. It's a new Detroit Lions. It's a new culture.

It's a new standard. It's a new expectation from the fan base and even outside Detroit. And gosh, painful, I know, to see them cough up a 17-point halftime lead in the NFC Championship. But there is solace in knowing they're close, closer than they've ever been probably. So I'm waiting for some Lions fans to say, Lions win the Super Bowl.

So you can find me on Twitter, ALawRadio. And then on our Facebook page, I did see from Ben a Brown Super Bowl 40-plus years being a fan. He says, oh yeah, that's in there as well. That was also on the original list in 2015.

It has not yet been manifested. But speaking of the Lions, a bunch of them were represented at the Pro Bowl flag football game and the Pro Bowl skills competition the last few days in Las Vegas. Amunras, St. Brown, they came so close. But what about that season? The coaches, the guys in the locker room, everyone in that building goes to work every day. A bunch of selfless guys, and they go to work. So I think it's a testament to everyone, even the front office, the guys they drafted.

Great group. I'm happy to be there. Can't wait for next year.

How about that? Amunras, St. Brown, can't wait to get back to work, can't wait for next year. His sentiments about the coaching staff and the fact that they're remaining intact. So think about it, neither the defensive or offensive coordinator got jobs. And just as a side note, Philadelphia was in the Super Bowl a year ago. This time last year, we're talking about Chiefs and Eagles. The Eagles were amazing and obviously nearly pulled off the rally. But what we saw from Jalen Hurts and that offense in the Super Bowl last year set them up for what was supposed to be unfinished business.

A return trip, we finally get the bling. And they started out 10-1. But they had, well, problems. They had a tough year on defense. They really never had much of an identity.

We heard that from guys later in the year. Who are they? Who are they supposed to be? Who do they want to be when they're on the field? And you know the big change.

And I think maybe over or underestimated the adjustment it would require. Both coordinators left. Both coordinators left for head coaching jobs.

Shane Steichen to Indy. They had a double figure win season, right? They have 10 wins. And I'll have to go back and look.

See, this is how it like all blends together. And then Jonathan Gannon in Arizona where he's received rave reviews already from Kyler Murray. But yeah, we're talking about losing both coordinators and it had a major impact. So that's why it's huge for the Lions to keep their coordinators. Nine wins. They were on the cusp of a 10-win season.

But they had a winning record even without their rookie quarterback, Anthony Richardson. So for Detroit to be able to keep its coaching staff intact, Aidan Hutchinson is, well he's always full of energy, but he's jazzed up. Amazing.

Amazing. I'm so happy that they're all back. And it just shows that they believe in what we're doing.

And they believe in this process. And I know everyone's going to be hell-bent on getting back and moving even more forward than we did this year. All of these reactions and all of these comments on Sirius XM NFL radio, it does blow me away that anyone would call for Dan Campbell to be fired or replaced.

That's just ludicrous. They're not in this space in three years without Dan Campbell. He represents everything that the Lions fans want. And you may not like how aggressive he was in terms of passing up the field goals. And I didn't love, I didn't love it. I didn't love the second one. I was okay with the first one because they still had the big lead, the double-figure lead. Though a lot of people quibble with that one and say, hey, you could have gone right back up by three scores. But when you're trailing by three, I don't love the idea of going for the touchdown or going forward on fourth down with the pressure so high knowing how well the Chiefs defense had been playing.

I don't love that. But even so, that's who he is. That's how they got to this point and his players back him. Captains like Panay Sewell, right? And so they're keeping the coaching staff intact from Aaron Glenn as the defensive coordinator who did interview for a bunch of jobs.

In fact, I'm pretty sure he was also a finalist with the commanders. And then the offensive coordinator, Ben Johnson, I'm not sure if you saw some of the reports, the speculation this weekend, but apparently Johnson's been telling people close to him that he did not love what he heard in the interview process. Again, these are reports.

Take everything with a grain of salt. But one of the sources that was reporting on this indicated that he felt like they were basketball guys who acted like they knew way too much about football. Or really, my read of that would be they didn't defer to his football knowledge. And they are basketball guys. Ben Terrace, part owner of the Sixers.

Also hockey, right, with the New Jersey Devils. And then Magic Johnson. But here's the thing, Magic Johnson's a winning businessman. He's got his finger in multiple other sports, and everywhere he goes they win. So if nothing else, he's got the Midas touch.

Oh, the Magic touch. But apparently some of the reports indicate that Ben Johnson didn't love the fact that he felt like they were too pompous when it came to football. Pompous is my word. And then according to them, the Commander's Brain Trust, again, this is through a leak, they didn't feel like he interviewed well. Whatever that means.

It can mean a variety of things. And so Ben Johnson stays in Detroit, Aaron Glenn stays in Detroit, even though they both receive head coaching interest, and that consistency and continuity will be huge. Because they, I mean, you ask the players, you ask the coaches, they say this is a family, and we want to accomplish something as a family. So it's good to hear from some of the Lions at the Pro Bowl skills and flag football competition. And there are others. For instance, you've got guys who are there who now have new head coaches. You've got rookies, like a rookie quarterback in C.J. Stroud, who also made the playoffs and had his first taste.

So we'll let you hear from a couple of others as we head through this hour. But what is the sporting event, the moment that you most want to see in your lifetime? Don on Twitter says, Remember the buzz a great boxing match would create for that week leading up to it?

I miss those days. Oh, gosh, even going back not that long ago to Floyd Mayweather, when he would have a fight. The buzz and the buildup to all of that. He says, I'm talking Tyson versus Holyfield, too. God chills thinking about it, so he would love to see one of those great boxing matches. Yeah, boxing is in my lifetime has completely lost all of its buzz and its attraction. Maybe not completely.

Maybe that's an overstatement. But general sports fans don't pay much attention to boxing anymore. They pay more attention to, say, MMA and UFC than they do boxing. Boxing has kind of lost its way. There's been a lot of corruption when it comes to the promotion and that type of thing. But also there isn't really a fighter that transcends his sport the way that Tyson did or Holyfield did for years and multiple iterations. We're going to talk to Oscar De La Hoya when we get to Vegas.

And he he was one of those guys, those names that would get people to pay attention. But boxing is not that way anymore. It really isn't. You have to be it's become much more of a niche sport.

You have to be a diehard fan to even know who's matching up from week to week. What moment would you most like to see in your lifetime when it comes to sports in light of the U.S. men's national team now being on home soil for the upcoming World Cup? I can't wait for that. 855-212-4227. We'll get to your calls. And you can find us on Twitter and Facebook.

A peanut butter M&M's production. In a world where Super Bowl winners get the world's admiration and a fancy ring, but the runners up get nothing, one retired cop returns. That's one retired quarterback. Read the script.

It's called maturity. It's your job. What in the **** was that? No days off!

No days off! Take that for data. Amy actually stuck her finger up her nose. The ref really wasn't even listening.

Listening to nothing that I was saying. For what? I didn't know. Why don't you just run it? That's a really good thought. I tried to activate my blitz with my psycho.

Really? Listen to that! Bend over backwards and be honest and direct with you guys. You stick it right up my *** in the *** team. I'm sick of that. I'm here if I won't be a problem. L.A.P.B. was called. If you not gonna punch me in my face when you see me then shut up. Stop it right now! We're still here! Our roster looks great on paper. Whoopty hell.

Alright. They're very fiery under the covers. What kind of mythical powers does the Sun Devil have?

We gotta consider that. I'm gonna say the Wildcat's out. The Trojan, does he have a horse or is he on foot? Does he have a bow and arrow or just his sword? The Bruin definitely formidable.

If I get the Rona on top of that, if I get the Rona... Hell, I would rather die than to live the rest of my life in fear and wearing a damn man. You should not be here. Someone has run on the field. Some guy with a bra. He's pulling down his pants.

Put off your pants my man. He's being chased to the 30. He breaks a tackle from a security guard. The 20 down the middle. The 10.

The 5. He slides at the 1. Pull up your pants. Take off the bra and be a man. Lord, now they're cuffing him. But pull up his drawers.

Whatever you do. When I came in, they're like, yo, you gotta like, show like, you gotta be the dog. And I'm like, man, we got dogs. We got dogs, you hear me? Milwaukee, we dog.

So yeah, I thought about just mooning him. A big old chocolate ass and MetLife. Hey, I got some wise words for that Cincinnati mayor. Oh, hey Travis. Know your role and shut your mouth, you jabroni. You gotta fight for your right to party.

All right. Hall of Flame features some delicious audio, some moments that are pure unadulterated spontaneity. And you may hear that we already had a Travis Kelsey in there. So he was going for a repeat in the after hours Hall of Flame with our induction last Thursday night into Friday morning. If you missed it, I know a lot of you voted, so thank you for your votes. If you missed it, these were our candidates.

First Jason Kidd. He just wants some positivity around the media. Not making a big deal about it this year because **** going good, right? So write some positive ****. I just asked you a question and I'm giving you a **** answer like you guys, there's all right to write positive stuff. People will reach a positive ****. You don't always have to be negative, right? Like it's just the world is already negative enough, right? So let's see some positive stuff on some positive people that are playing, doing their job on a nightly basis.

It cracks me up that twice in that little rant, he calls it positive bleep. That's an oxymoron. But yeah, Jason Kidd, he just wants the media to take a different approach.

Is that too much to ask? Also from the world of basketball. This was my vote. It's a travesty that more people do not know Darko Ryakhovich. And he just lost his mind when recently there was a game in which they had a huge disparity in free throws and he was done. He was done.

And this is pure classic Hall of Flame material. We have star players on our team as well. Scotty Barnes, who is all star caliber player in this league, he goes every single time to the rim with force, not trying to get foul calls. He gets two free throws for the whole game. How is that possible?

How are you going to explain that to me? They had to win tonight? If that's the case, just let us know so we don't show up for the game. Just give them a win.

That was not fair tonight. And this is not happening first time for us. Scotty Barnes is going to be all star.

He's going to be the face of this league. What's happening over here during whole season, I've been calling you back. It's a complete crap. You couldn't ask for more classic Hall of Flame material.

Darko melts down. So those two from the basketball world, from the NFL world in context now, Mike Vrabel no longer has a head coaching job, but man, don't ask him about mailing it in week 18, even with nothing on the line for the Titans. It sucks to lose. Did you have another thought or no, I'm just curious why it sucks losing awful. That's why I want to win. Oh my gosh.

I mean, it's, I would say from my perspective, it's better to have a job and be talking about losing and how it sucks than to not have one at all. But I'm still stunned that he does not have one of these new head coaching jobs, but more and more, the league is going younger first year, hot coordinators more and more though Dan Quinn did get the job in DC. He's 53 and we know Jim Harbaugh is back in the NFL at age 60 with the chargers.

But think about it. Bill Belichick, we'll talk about him in a second. Belichick and Pete Carroll retired. Andy Reid is now the oldest coach in the NFL at 65, about to be 66.

All right, finally, your chores by a very slim margin over Darko. Travis Kelsey, a repeat inductee into the after hours hall of flame because he is not having it with Justin Tucker at the AFC championship, lining up his crap in his quarterback's way. If you want to be about it, you keep your helmet and your football and your kicking tee right where the quarterbacks are warming up and they're dropping eyes are looking left and they got a helmet down by their feet.

If you're not going to pick that up, I'll happily move that for you. He was kind of winking at me like being a **** about it and trying to get under the skin. Me and Pat, we've been having the same mentality for this game all week long and sorry if we took it to a level that you didn't think it'd get to that way.

But if you're going to be a ****, I promise you, I can one-up you every time, dude. On the new heights podcast with his brother Jason, so I pose there is the difference. Travis and Jason Kelsey in together. Kelsey is not taking it with a kicker, Justin Tucker.

And so by the slimmest of margins, 37% to 32%. I'm bummed because Darko was classic, but Travis Kelsey, he is your choice between Twitter and Facebook. So thank you for voting him into the after hours hall of flame and we'll try to do another induction before too long. While I'm talking about Justin Tucker though, did you guys see what was happening at the pro bowl flag football game is hysterical. Tucker comes out to warm up and there are guys on the, I think it was Quincy Williams of the jets guys on the AFC side who are clearing a path. Everybody get out of Justin Decker's way, get out of his way.

It was hysterical. Like everybody is moving aside because Williams is running interference for Tucker. So he has plenty of room to warm up. So that was kind of a nod. You think that story wasn't big, except that even in the NFL, they were talking about it and even on news channels and Oh gosh, TMZ sports. And I'm trying to think where else I saw it.

People maybe it definitely crossed over. And I think partly it's because Patrick Mahomes and Jason Kelsey or sorry, Travis Kelsey and their profile that transcends football. So that was something funny. And then following the update, did you see the love letter? I think it's a love letter, not the dear John type, but the love letter that Bill Belichick wrote to new England Patriots fans after his 24 years with the team, it was published in the Boston globe and it was special. So to read part of that, what's the one moment in sports that you desperately want to witness before your life is done before your years here on the earth have fizzled out. We did this in 2015 and two of the top three have in fact come true.

Why can't the U S men's national team win a world cup? I'm all for it. I'm here. I'm all in. I believe that we will win producer J and Colton, who will be running the board back here at CBS sports radio headquarters, the hell of a front row seat for all of our craziness.

They will have the music that you suggested. We've got the special playlist just for super bowl week in Vegas. I would say for sports fans in the United States, it is the biggest week on the calendar. Whether or not you're a football fan doesn't really matter.

It's one of the only games of the year, although I'd say the AFC and NFC championship games are getting into that space too. But the super bowl and the super bowl week, starting with what is now media night opening night is what they call it, but it used to be media day. Now it's media night, which comes up Monday and the players, the coaches they're inundated with questions that have some to do with football, but not much to do with football.

There'll be news outlets there of all shapes and sizes. MLB entertainment tonight, of course, just imagine the fray around Travis Kelce on Monday evening, especially with Taylor Swift, winning a couple of Grammys on Sunday and not mentioning him. Who wants to bring that up? Oh, just rude.

It's just rude, but it will get brought up. Did you watch? Did you see?

Did you know she didn't mention you nuts anyway? So he's going to be surrounded even more so than he was last year. And honestly, the podcast that he does with his brother Jason was this incredible revelation in 2022, because as they ended up colliding in the super bowl, but as they got closer and closer, the podcast got more and more popular. They have great guests.

They obviously have connections all over the league. And so for the two of them to capture lightning in the bottle, the way they did first year of their podcast and it's top five in the world, the week they went to the super bowl. Now you add Taylor talk into the mix and you're looping in a whole nother audience that never would have found the podcast had it not been for the two of them dating. So yeah, their, their meteoric rise to superstardom has been pretty incredible and it coincides with the first two years of the new heights podcast.

It's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS porch radio opening night is Monday, and then they kind of get back to football. But both the chiefs and the Niners have landed on Sunday afternoon. They both got there, you know, it was really funny.

And I don't know if this was a, I'll have to go back and look. I don't know if it was a hack or if it was someone posing as Adam Schefter, the great NFL insider, but at first glance, it looks like Adam tweeted that the chiefs and the commanders have both landed in Las Vegas in advance of Super Bowl 58. Again I didn't look closely enough to know if it was like a parody account for Adam Schefter because sometimes, well, a lot of times when you're a public figure, especially if you're a reporter or a media member, people will try to propose as you and break news. It happens every year around the draft and other big events where people are duped media people. You check marks, it becomes even more paramount that you check credentials. One dead giveaway is the number of followers, another is make sure the name is spelled right and that it's actually his name. So yeah, I will go and I will look, but it may have been a mistake by Adam, it may have been someone else posing as Adam. Let's see.

This Twitter account has chiefs and niners have now both arrived in Las Vegas the week of Super Bowl blah, blah, blah officially underway. What is that little, oh, it was edited. It was him. Oh my gosh.

Okay, so here's the progression. Schefter again, this is a mistake. I've done this before and had to quickly delete a tweet, but he's got people who will screenshot stuff the second he posts it.

It was up for 19 seconds before someone screenshotted it and put it out there. It is his official account, Adam Schefter, chiefs and commanders both have now arrived in Las Vegas. He was probably thinking about the commanders hiring coordinators, which happened over the weekend.

The week of Super Bowl 58 officially is underway. So then he edits it and he puts in niners. So he has paid for that monthly subscription where you not only get a check mark, but you also have the ability to edit. Jay has been tempted, but he doesn't want to pay the money. I said to him, you should ask the company to pay for it. You're a producer. It's a vital tool that you could use as a producer of a show, but we both know the company would not be paying for it.

And he doesn't want to pay for it just on principle. He won't give Elon Musk and Twitter another cent. It's after hours on our Facebook page named after the show, easy and then CBS is our show Twitter. We're going to have a lot of photos and videos from Las Vegas. Jay heads there in a few hours, so he'll be there overnight Monday.

Maybe he'll go and have a dirt dog on the strip or tacos el gordo. And I will be there first thing Tuesday morning and we'll hit the ground running. So radio row Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday shows from our Las Vegas affiliate and their studios. They're obviously hosting us Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights. So it's going to be awesome. We're really looking forward to it. Thank you for all your Vegas vibe suggestions. And thank you of course, uh, for the food recommendations because it's never just about the football though. It needs to be primarily about the football the first few days.

All right. I teased this before the break and I am not surprised at all. I'm glad that people get to see a different side of Bill Belichick than maybe what they normally hear in the media when he's terse and Kurt and succinct or just flat out rude according to many people. He took out a page ad in the Boston Globe to thank Patriots fans. And it goes like this to Patriots fans everywhere, nowhere in America are pro sports fans as passionate as in new England. And for 24 years, I was blessed to feel your passion and power.

The Patriots are the only NFL team representing six States, but in reality, Patriots nation knows no borders. Colton. What are the chances he wrote this all by himself?

2%. Oh, see, I disagree with you. He's really smart. I'm going to say he maybe had someone look at it, someone who's important to him, but that he wrote this from his heart. You may not think he has a heart, but trust me, he does say things that emotional to write this. Well, I do think that he, yes, I think he has the innate ability to turn.

It off and on. But as someone who covered the Patriots, when I worked in Providence, in fact, Foxboro is halfway between Providence and Boston. I've been in press conferences where he's actually taken five minutes to answer a football question and his passion about football. And certainly the way that he was beloved in new England, kind of like Tom Brady, there's nothing bad you can say about his time in new England either as much as it didn't end the way that he wanted it to.

Right. And as time goes on, you were undaunted by weather, attended scorching hot training camp practices and braved Foxboro's coldest, wettest, snowiest and windiest days. Your thoughtful letters offered support, critique and creative play suggestions. That's definitely sarcasm on Belichick's part, but also a little bit of humor with the fans. You watched on TV, the Internet and from your stadium seats, you traveled from coast to coast and internationally numerous times, you overlook opposing stadiums. I'm sorry, you overtook opposing stadiums and were the last fan standing. We loved it! You gave your precious time, resources and energy to our team. We appreciated it! Six times you packed Boston by the millions for parades that were truly a two way expression of gratitude and love. The images from those days are burned in my memory.

You may even have enjoyed my fashion sense and press conferences, or maybe you just tolerated them. Now see, that's total Belichick. I loved coaching here and together we experienced some amazing moments. Thank you all. With respect and admiration, Bill Belichick. That's classy. And I know that we were on a need to know basis and that he didn't think we needed to know, but that's Bill Belichick's heart. So I think that's pretty amazing. And I disagree with Colton. I think he wrote it himself.
