I feel like I'm mostly settled into the routine again. But I won't be sad about Friday. If you're already awake on your Friday morning, well happy Friday to you.

Thanks for hanging out with us here after hours on the Infinity Sports Network. Working my way through the top 10 Hawaii moments and so we'll add a few more this hour. People keep asking me what island did you island hop? How many islands? Where did you go? We only hit two of them, Oahu and the Big Island, and we chose the Big Island specifically for the adventures that fit us as a couple.

Hiking, beaches, remote shore points, mountains, volcanoes, gardens. That's the kind of stuff we're into. We're not into the shopping. We're really not big into restaurants as much. We did do one kind of fancier date night at a great cafe in Waimea, which is up in the mountains. And we also really enjoyed a Hawaiian barbecue that we did on a ranch up at the top of Kohala Mountain. Gorgeous setting.

But yeah, we're much more into the outdoors. We explored the entire island and we were gone. I would say of the nine days we spent on the Big Island, we were gone eight of those pretty much all day long. Just finding all the neat places that we could take photos, waterfalls, and I'll just drop another one here really quickly.

This is powerful because we found it just by going through the guidebook that we were reading. It's called Lapahoho. It's a funny name, but it's a little town on the northeast coast of the Big Island and it's significant for not just one major reason in Hawaii history but also national history. Going back, I'm going to have to remember the exact date, so I'll get the exact date, but there was a tsunami at that point. And it happened that the town of Lapahoho had a school right there on the shore.

Now, I've read about it now, so I know the history, but I didn't at the time. In Alaska, so the Aleutian Islands, 500 miles away, there's an earthquake. I shouldn't say 500 miles away. There's an earthquake in the Aleutian Islands up in Alaska.

Here's where I got the 500 from. The waves that it produces up in Alaska are traveling 500 miles per hour and it takes them a few hours, but they reach Hawaii. They reach this northeast point of the Big Island. And when they get there, and for those of you who know how a tsunami works, all the water kind of gets sucked out initially. And as the story goes, the teacher of the school there at Lapahoho Point thought it was really neat that the water had all been sucked out. They did not know the signs of a tsunami.

So, this is a really rocky area generally, so we're out there hanging out. The waves were fierce. And as the waves get sucked out, the water gets sucked out, this teacher thinks, oh, I'm going to take advantage of this.

It's a calmer time. The water's kind of gone. Again, not knowing what she was dealing with, she took her class out onto the shore where now all of a sudden there's very little water and it's really shallow. And then comes the massive waves. The tsunami that slams into this point and kills, now it killed over 100 people, but it killed 21 children who were part of the school there at Lapahoho. And so it's a point that has major history.

Here I found the date, 1946. It's a beautiful point. There's a bunch of rocks and the waves, they crash into them and it's a great picnic spot for locals still. But it was also a site of tragedy. And so as it goes, they decided that they needed to come up with some way to warn people when there was a tsunami or when they could figure out the signs. And so they develop a warning system there using technology based on this tsunami in 46. So the next time they have one, only a handful of people die.

They had another one in the 70s and no one died because they knew the warning signs and they had the warning system. And it actually turned into what is now the national warning system for tsunamis. And all over the island you see signs that say tsunami evacuation route. So they're everywhere, including the village where we stayed, one of the villages where we spent a lot of time. So yeah, there is a memorial plaque there and it definitely is an area that all Hawaiians know because of the tragedy that occurred there. But there is a beach park there now and it's beautiful to hang out there. And actually they say they're overdue for another tsunami because it's been 50 plus years and they're supposed to happen once every 50 years.

So at this point, they're almost on alert and expecting it. So yeah, it used to be a quiet fishing village and was kind of on that point and relatively secluded right on the sea and down this great steep road, so into a valley. So it was right down at sea level. Really pretty drive down about a mile down and you're going around these winding roads, almost going straight down. Just a gorgeous cliff setting too.

We were up on top taking photos, looking down and then we drove down into it. And I can certainly understand why they're susceptible there for tsunami just because of how low it is when you get down to the water level. So yeah, just gorgeous green sea cliffs and beautiful water and crashing waves and large rocks and they do still have a school there. But learning the history of the place was pretty significant for us. We really appreciated that we were able to find out the history even before we went down there. So that was another particular, I would say another particular piece of our trip that really appealed to us. We both are history buffs and we love reading the history of any place that we go.

We're total nerds I guess. So it was cool just to kind of assimilate ourselves into the Big Island for the better part of 10 days and live in a village where a lot of locals live and not in a big resort or anything like that and just kind of take it in from that perspective. Although we did have our one big dumb tourist move which I mentioned when we got back on Tuesday night, Wednesday morning. I told that story but I will. It's one of my top 10 Hawaii moments.

Well not that part, not the dumb tourist move but we did get where we were going. So yeah, and I'm going to do some photos too. I haven't had a chance to other than the food photos but I will do them in a blog post, maybe a couple of blog posts coming up this weekend. So I appreciate that you all care. You sent me lots of nice messages about how you missed me and you couldn't wait to hear the stories.

It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence. We've talked, gosh, NBA playoffs, NHL playoffs. Also hit Kaitlyn Clark's home debut which wasn't great for the Indiana Fever but there were better than 17,000 fans there and I'm anxious to see the numbers for Amazon Prime because this game was broadcast on Prime. Something else going on Thursday, the PGA Championship and yet another record for Xander Schauffele. A 62 for him at the opening round of Valhalla.

Yeah, he's on top of the leaderboard. It's a great start. One I'll always take. I think anyone in the field will take and yeah, like you said, it's Thursday and just happy with the start.

It is Thursday. It's really early but minus nine is minus nine. By the way, Valhalla is in Louisville if you don't know so they're in the heartland and yeah, whether or not it's Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday to post a minus nine and a 62 is really incredible. But he wasn't the only one that went low. Now, he's top three in the world and he's had a couple of these rounds which are jaw dropping. He had, so this PGA Championship, by shooting that opening round 62, he ties the record for lowest round at a major championship. And this is about a year after, actually same year, not calendar year but same 12 month span in which he set the US Open record by doing the same thing.

So he definitely does have the ability to drop one of these super low rounds. Can he keep it up? Maybe not another 62 on Friday but can he hold off a field that's kind of nipping at his heels?

Again, because it was easy to score, it was a soft course with a bunch of rain preceding the start of the championship. So Tony Finau, he's at minus six. Rory McIlroy is at minus seven. You got a ton of golfers who are within six, seven shots of Xander and really low numbers. Brooks Koepka, he's at minus four. Kala Morakawa, he's at minus five. Just a lot of guys poised.

Scottie Scheffler coming off birth of his first child, he's at minus four as well. So there's just a lot of guys who could turn around and have another great round on Friday and make this a really competitive weekend which is the hope. I think that's how you get golfers back. Golfers, not golfers. That's how you get golf fans back to investing. It's a major so that kind of helps but we know the ratings have tanked this season and part of the reason is because of all this ridiculous chatter over the PGA live merger which is a total sham. And the fact that you've got some of the best players in the world that are off on a different tour and just the way that for the last year we have been promised details and structure for this merger and still they're not making any progress. In fact they're making so little progress that now even the golfers like Rory think that the merger is actually going to happen. My confidence level on something getting done before last week was as low as it had been and then with this news of Jimmy resigning and knowing the relationship he has with the other side and how much warmth there is from the other side, it's concerning. Yeah so Jimmy Dunn is who Rory is referring to. We talked about this earlier in the week. He was the guy who actually orchestrated the initial merger and he mentions the respect that Jimmy has from the live side.

Well the fact is he's resigned because they can't make any progress. They're seemingly stuck. It's a stalemate and we'll ask our friend Matt Adams of the Golf Channel and Fairways of Life when he joins us next hour here on the Infinity Sports Network.

But guys like Max Homa and I appreciate Max. He's also in the mix. He's six strokes back after the opening round.

He doesn't hold back. He's been pretty open about the fact that he thinks this is terrible for golf, that it's really alienating fans and that he's kind of down on where their game is right now. I think if you spend a lot of time on the internet, it does feel like golf's crumbling, professional golf. It's tough to decipher because when we're on the grounds of events, it's amazing. Last week at Quill Hollow was awesome. Felt no different. Bay Hill felt no different.

The players felt no different. So it's odd. It doesn't feel like it's dying yet you hear a lot of very valid complaints on the internet. So I think it's been, it's very troubling. I don't like where it's going.

It's got to be exhausting to be a casual golf fan at this point in time. I don't know why you would want to hear about the business side of this game. As a fan of other sports, I do not care about the business side of what the Lakers and Dodgers are doing. So you don't care that the Detroit Lions just gave Jared Goff a record extension? No? Or that Kirk Cousins got $100 million guaranteed and then his team drafted another quarterback? No?

Interesting. I don't know that we're going to get a straight answer from fans and so it's not really worth putting out there, but I do think he's got a great point. Not that you should believe everything you read on the internet, but he does make a point about the fact that more than the actual golf, what we're hearing about now is this sham of a merger and how it's alienating fans and driving them away because they're tired of hearing about it. Max has been pretty open. I mean, he's getting more and more frustrated. You notice I haven't mentioned Tiger Woods? Oh, it's time.

It's time. He was minus one. So he was in red numbers after a birdie on his 16th hole, but then ended up at plus one.

I think it was the 16th. Ended up at plus one because he didn't finish strong. So now he's got some work to do in order to stick around and make the cut.

I made a few cuts in a row when I was 140 some odd. So you have to just grind it out and it's a marathon. Major championships are a long grind and it's just plodding along.

It's not a sprint. It's just a grind and I had a few years where I was able to participate for a very long time. Each day is a little bit different. Some days it's better than others. And it's just the way it is. My body is just that way.

Some days it feels great and other days a little bit of a struggle. I mean that's Tiger's reality now. He's been pretty honest about it and that's the issue. He's only playing maybe one tournament a month, sometimes not even that.

That's kind of his goal. But if you don't play a lot of golf, well then you get out of golf shape and your stamina is down and your physical body then struggles to keep up. But he can't work out the way that he used to either because of all his different limitations with the foot, the leg from the accident, obviously the back surgeries.

And so he's kind of in a catch 22. He needs to play more golf. He needs to work out more in order for him to be in a good rhythm and for his body, that muscle memory to return. But at the same time he can't push his physical body the way that he used to. So he is at plus one. He's got some work to do to make the cut.

Though yeah, obviously he's got the ability to do that just by virtue of his talent and everything he knows about creating and shaping shots out there on the golf course. And Vahal is one that they're all pretty familiar with, veterans on the tour. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence. What are better words in sports or a better phrase in sports than game seven?

Chase is in Washington. Welcome to the show. We love your show. Welcome back from your trip and we are happy to have you back on the radio. Thank you. I wanted to give a quick response to your question about game seven and then if it's okay, I also do have a TV streaming recommendation too.

Okay. So in terms of game seven, I think it kind of depends on the circumstances, whether it's positive, negative or neutral. If I don't really have a dog in the fight in terms of who I'm rooting for, I love for it to go seven games because it's exciting and there's more games on and it's fun to follow. That's how I'm feeling about the NBA and NHL playoffs this year. However, if my team is like way ahead in the series and then the other team comes back, game seven can be really stressful and not that much fun and there's a lot on the line. Right. So I'm kind of wondering why game seven is considered the best phrase in sports when it's not always a positive thing.

It can be really stressful and nerve wracking. That's true and I guess the reason is because I'm looking at it from the perspective of a radio host who digs drama and game sevens are great for radio, great for content. So yeah, as much as I do have teams that I root for when I'm not in the radio studio, there's never a bad sitch where a game seven isn't going to be great for our show that night.

Yeah, definitely. I was going to say that from your perspective, you have more content to talk about if series do go seven games. I was going to say, I think we are the champions is a better phrase and the song is iconic and being able to say that or hear that music after your team wins a championship is really, really special.

Like it gives me goosebumps when that happens. Unfortunately, my teams haven't experienced that very much because I'm from Cincinnati. I have a team of Bengals and Redskins. Bengals and Redskins haven't won that much in my lifetime, but the few times that I have gotten to hear that even if it's just for like a division championship is really special. That is and I don't think the run is done for these current Bengals as much as it's been tough to have Joe Burrow and then not have Joe Burrow and then have him again and then not have him. And I know they've got some changes too with their roster, but I still think that they're a team that should be considered a force and a contender in the AFC. Absolutely.

I'm really hopeful we can keep Joe Burrow in one piece and go really deep this year. Gosh, agreed. Right.

He is the key as we know for quarterbacks and especially guys that are as elite as he is. Absolutely. Would it be okay if I give that quick TV streaming recommendation?

Go, go. So there's a thing called uzu.tv. And it could be a good option for you and Bob because it's really affordable. It's actually only one hundred and thirty dollars for an entire year.

Wow. Which averages out to like ten dollars a month. And it's totally legal to it's not one of those illegal things that a lot of people use. And it includes like every sports channel, like all the ESPN, SEC Network, SEC Network, MLB, NHL, all these different sports channels and all the regional sports channels, too.

So it's like having NBA League Pass, NHL, whatever, and all these things. And it's really affordable. The only thing it doesn't have is like ABC, CBS, gotcha, NBC, stuff like that. But you could get that with an antenna. I know you and Bob are looking to cut costs.

That could be a good option for you. It's uzu.tv. I wonder why I've never heard of it. Uzu.tv.

Yeah, I don't know. I think it's really under the radar. It's like a well-kept secret.

And I think it might be like a European company or something like that, but it's worked really well and the video quality is good, too. I love that you say it's totally legal. That's the first caveat. It's totally legal.

I don't want people to think that it was illegal because I would feel bad about recommending something that was illegal, especially on national radio. Thank you. I appreciate your conscientiousness in that regard. Absolutely. Thank you, Amy.

Have a great rest of your night and welcome back. Oh, thanks, Chase. Oh, that's good stuff. Can you check it out, Jay? Uzu.tv? First question when you type uzu.tv into Google.

Is uzu.tv.com legal? That's the first thing that it asks. I'm looking at it. You're onto something, Chase.

You're onto something. It looks really good, but I don't know. It looks like almost too good to be true. That's what I mean. That's my first question, is what's the catch? I'm looking at the schedule of games they had.

They had literally every baseball game last night, the hockey games, the basketball game, the WNBA game. It looks just too good to be true. I don't know. It's perfectly legal, but they're able to siphon broadcasts from other streaming services. How do they do that? I don't know. I don't either.

I don't want to give them my credit card just yet. That's all. But we appreciate that Chase is offering up recommendations. We were just mentioning football. Jared Goff, the contract extension, he actually spoke about it on Thursday. So in the midst of playoff pushes and game sevens and the PGA Championship and Kaitlyn Clark, football. The hype train.

This is after hours with Amy Lawrence. From the opening moments of the NFL draft in Detroit. I'm in Ross Brown with his BFF Jared Goff. Are they going to become the most productive duo in football? Can they surpass, say, Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelsey, Tua and Tyreek Hill? Not as long a tenure together. But the Detroit Lions, they wanted to make darn sure that their quarterback wasn't going anywhere and that fans both at the draft and at Ford Field this season would have the chance to serenade him with more chance of Jared Goff.

Jared Goff. And actually being home, if you will, being comfortable. One big reason why Jared chose to get the deal done now. This city just means so much to me now and will hold a special place in my heart forever. The reward of the contract and like the success we've been able to have has been awesome. But the journey itself of these past three years has been the true success and being able to go through that together with my teammates and with my family and go through the dark times and grow through those times and learn more about yourself and work on yourself. That's the win in all of this and I'm happy to be able to stand in front of you and be your quarterback for a lot longer, but this city's meant a lot to me. I just want to win for them and I want to win for these fans and I want them to be able to experience the success that we've had this past year and a half or whatever it is and just continue to do that.

I love it. I love it for Jared that after he was blindsided by a trade from the Rams to the Lions, he's found not just a new opportunity, a reset on his career. He's been terrific the last couple years, but also the fan base has embraced him. His coach has embraced him. The Lions in the locker room love him. The city adores him, but it's not just that. He wants to finish what they've started. After getting to the NFC Championship game, he wants to finish what they've started and certainly now it just was lightning in a bottle to have the draft in Detroit this spring after what they accomplished in the playoffs and ending so many droughts, winning the NFC North. Four years, $212 million, but actually the money wasn't the top reason why Jared was anxious to get it done. You can go back and forth on the numbers and whatnot and that wasn't really the thing that was ever something I was extremely concerned with. It was the security and the no trade clause and all that stuff, knowing that all that was in there and feeling secure and then knowing that I can now put that behind me.

And then he says I can be excited about what's to come. So pass is done, contract sign seal delivered. I certainly don't have a contract that's like Jared Goff's with a $73 million signing bonus, the largest in NFL history. But I do know that when I sign my current deal going back now two and a half years ago, yeah, when you know you've got a fully guaranteed contract, actually in my case, not for Jared, but he's got a ton of guaranteed money. When you know that it's done, you can put it in the rearview mirror, you've got the job security and whatever stability pro sports offer you, not to mention a no trade clause, which is huge. Not every player has that.

Not even every veteran player has that in the NFL. This is a big deal for him. Now he can firmly focus mind, body, soul spirit on leading the Lions to the Super Bowl.

And of course that is one of the goals heading into this next stretch where he's got a contract that runs through 28. I want to win a Super Bowl. I want to leave a legacy and I have a lot of personal goals, but I think most importantly it is hosting that Lombardi. I can't say enough about Jared. We all know the narrative, the situation, everything he's been through these past years and to be where he is today and where he's going is incredible. And for me to be a part of his journey in any way has been such a blessing and I'm so grateful to have him as a teammate and as a friend.

He's so deserving of this and I'm so happy for him and his family. Frank Ragnell, offensive lineman, speaking to ABC 7 in Detroit. So yeah, it's not just good for Jared, though it is lucrative for Jared. It's also great for the Lions.

And of course for Dan Campbell, knowing that they've got this stability at the most important position in football and potentially most important position in all of sports. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence. We know the schedule came out earlier this week and Jay and I admitted we tried to watch the schedule release on NFL Network. It's a mindless activity. If you care about your own schedule that I get, how in the world NFL fans could be bothered to look at the schedule for every other team that, even if you're talking about just prime time games, it's a lot of useless information in May, as is predicting win totals.

It's a useless exercise, a mindless exercise. But it was kind of interesting to hear Mike North, who's the NFL VP of Broadcast Planning, talk about the networks and which games they get and when and how they kind of finagle keeping all of their broadcast partners happy. It's a lot of mouths to feed and obviously everybody wants the, you know, juiciest apple off the tree. So you really got to make sure, you know, everybody gets something.

Nobody gets everything. Kind of start at the top and you think about, you know, what are the quote unquote games of the year? You go to a game like Kansas City, San Francisco, you know that game could go Sunday night. Monday night would be a heck of a give to Thursday night.

CBS and Fox, 425, Sunday afternoon, Eastern Time, Windows. Those are our most watched windows. You know, that's where we're averaging 25, 26 million viewers every Sunday, almost regardless of the content. So you kind of start at the top and you think about what are we going to do with Kansas City, San Fran? Well, if it lands on NBC, then NBC shouldn't probably then also get Dallas, San Francisco. And if you're going to get the best Dallas, you can't get the best Kansas City.

And if you're going to get a good Kansas City, maybe somebody else is going to get two Kansas Cities and maybe they're not the two best. And so it's kind of this whole. Yeah, Hunger Games is a good way to think about a little Game of Thrones action, a little bit of everybody gets something. Nobody gets everything.

And you kind of start at the top and make sure that that really top tier, really juiciest apples are doled out fairly so that everybody feels like, you know, they got a little something. Mike North on the Rich Eisen show now thinking about the opening weekend, what do we know? It's a little bit of deja vu for Aaron Rodgers and the Jets back on Monday Night Football. They're not taking on the bills in week one, but they are on Monday Night Football. And it's the 49ers this time who will be their opponent. So Mike was actually speaking to Jets.com.

He did a ton of interviews and he was asked about this particular matchup. And Aaron Rodgers and the Jets once again, week one on Monday night. Once we kind of got our mind around maybe the Giants at home Sunday of one o'clock of week one, then you start thinking about what do you want to do with that Jets first game? And obviously Aaron Rodgers second first game as a Jets quarterback. We looked at schedules where, you know, they might have found themselves on the road on a Sunday afternoon, maybe at Tennessee or Jacksonville, and then come home in week two and be that first Amazon Thursday night game. You know, didn't seem right maybe to have that first game of the season kind of be buried in a window with eight or nine other games.

Like, I think that's one of the ones that the fans want to see. I don't know, Jay, do you think it's one of the ones the fans want to see considering that last year there were so many games on national TV that were supposed to feature Aaron Rodgers as the quarterback of the Jets? But what we were left with, Tim Boyle, Zach Wilson, days and days and days without a quarterback who can throw a touchdown to a wide receiver, it was brutal.

So as much as I understand why, and he kind of makes a joke, I love the line of Aaron Rodgers second game or the second first game with the New York Jets. Are they willing to take that risk against the Niners that it's going to blow up in their faces again? It looks like they are because I read, what is it, seven out of the first 11 weeks of the season the Jets are in a prime time slot or have night games. And this is just like the same thing that happened not last year with the Jets, two years ago with the Denver Broncos when they got Russell Wilson and they put them in all these prime time games and they were awful. And we had to watch the Broncos all season, so last year we had to watch the Jets all season. Maybe they should mix it up a little bit on prime time, I don't know.

Maybe, just maybe. Well, we'll get a lot of Chiefs, of course. We'll get a lot of the Jets, of course.

There are some teams that bring a lot of eyeballs and ear balls like the Dallas Cowboys, of course, the Niners, of course. So yeah, good stuff from Mike North. Maybe we'll throw in another one. Also asking you a better phrase in sports than game seven.

Hell yeah. They know. I was in there. Yeah, I told them.

I said, I'll see y'all motherf***ers for game seven. Thanks, man. Thanks.

This is After Hours with Amy Lawrence. Anthony Edwards in a candid moment told the locker room attendants in Denver he would be back. The attendants, I guess they know to prepare for his arrival.

It's a little bit like Darth Vader. Alert my starship to prepare for my arrival. So Ant warned the MFers that I'm sure they appreciated that.

They thought it was a compliment that he called them that. Alerted the attendants in Denver to prepare for his return in game seven. Ant has altered the deal. Pray I don't alter it further.

Lo and behold, they have returned. Is there a better phrase in sports than game seven? Ellen's in St. Louis. Good morning to you. How are you, Amy? I'm good. Thank you. So here's my phrase, not mine. Borrowing from Jack Buck, Joe Buck.

We will see you tomorrow night. That's a good one. Or while we're harkening back to crazy Buck calls. I don't believe what I just saw. Yeah, that's a good one too. And famous one here in St. Louis that I don't know still gets around the country from nineteen eighty five dating myself. Go crazy, folks.

Go crazy. Oh yeah. I think a lot of people know is that was that Ozzie?

Ozzie weighs less than I do. Out at a home run out of Old Bush Stadium, which was just cavernous. Yeah, it was great.

But yeah, we will see you tomorrow night. And then when Joe kind of did it as an homage to his dad 20 years later. Yes.

You know, the David Freese home run and things in St. Louis, which of course means a lot to us around here. I still just think it's a good one. But. Well, then it kind of means the same thing, right? Right. Can't. Exactly.

Game seven setting up a game seven can't compete with much from Joe Buck or even from Vin Scully. If we're going to go that direction. I like that. It's a good one. Thank you so much for the memory. All right. Good to talk to you. Thanks. Happy Friday to Ellen in St. Louis and to the rest of you as you join us here after hours with Amy Lawrence.

Couple of your responses on Facebook. Kathy says the first words I think of when I say game seven stressful, which is what I feel when my Bruins are. She says hopefully make it go to a game seven against Florida tonight. Let's see. Louise goes with goal, which is not really a phrase, but it is a popular word in hockey or opening day.

So like opening day. That's a good phrase. George has turned off the lights. The party's over. Let's see. Andy says for me, it would be here at your world champions after your after your team wins that particular trophy or cup. Tony goes with a long fly ball deep to center.

Andy, like a lot of you, is saying sudden death over time. And here's one, Jay, which I think we might have the audio to accompany Ben. His submission on Facebook.

Pull up your pants, take off the bra and be a man. Our friend Kevin Harlan. It's been a couple of years since we've had Kevin on the show. We need to rectify that. Right. He's he's sworn off ever making those calls again.

Twenty. They're chasing. They're not going to get waving his arms bare chested. Somebody stop.

You're not going to play the iconic conclusion of that call. Pull up. Pull up your pants.

Take off the bra and be down the middle by the 50. He's at the 30. He's bare chested and banging his chest. Now he runs the opposite way. He runs at the 50. He runs at the 40. The guy is drunk, but there he goes.

The 20. They're chasing. They're not going to get him waving his arms bare chested. Somebody stop. Here comes the blue coat.

They tackle him at the 40 yard line. What? We listened to all of that and we didn't get the line. It's fine, Jay.

It's fine. I think we figured it out. Thank you, Ben, for that memory. I did my impression of Kevin Harlan here on the Infinity Sports Network. As we head toward the top of the hour, we're asking you better phrase in sports than game seven.

I set it up for you. I love the answers that we're getting. Jim says, I'm partial to Skip Carey saying free baseball, meaning overtime. Elliott Lewis on Facebook says game seven at home. Dana says has to be sudden death. Scott agrees with that.

Reggie goes as far as sudden death, overtime. So, yeah, good stuff there. I promised you a couple of Hawaii memories or Hawaii moments every hour.

So I want to work in a couple here before we hit the top of the hour. Sure, Captain Cook is a familiar historical figure to many of you. I was the British sea captain who landed his ship on the Hawaiian Islands and not just the wide islands, but that was one of his discoveries, if you will.

They worshipped him as a god and then later killed him because he felt like they felt like he angered the gods. Anyway, there is a monument to Captain Cook where right near where he I think it was where he was killed. And they actually have a plaque there as well as a monument where he landed.

And it was put up by one by the British government, another by the Australian government, which is kind of funny. But you can get to that particular part of the coast to the shore a few ways. You can swim across the bay from the town, which is it's about a mile. You can kayak, which a lot of people do. You can come in by boat. It's great snorkeling in this protected bay. A lot of dolphins in this bay, too. So there were a bunch of of bigger boats, tourist boats that were there when we got there who allow people to then jump off the boats and snorkel.

So about five big tourist boats. So that's another way to get in. Or you can hike, which is how we got in. So it was a 1400 foot descent from up on the road above this bay with the Captain Cook monument. You hike down it and it's through, you know, lava field part of it. Part of it's through a rainforest, believe it or not. That's the crazy climates there on the Big Island. And so, yeah, we hike through this tropical forest first, rainforest first.

You know, there's goats and evidence of wild pigs everywhere. So you're kind of in the middle of what is an animal's paradise. And then you get to the lava rock and you're out on the coast and the views are gorgeous. You're way up high above the bay. So you keep descending, descending, descending, 1400 feet down and then you can get in the water.

Now a lot of, you know, a lot of it's like I said, kayaking and snorkeling. Bob and I didn't have, we decided not to snorkel. We just swam, but it was amazing. The water is clear. You can actually see the fish below you.

Calm in this bay. It was amazing. It was super hot. We were wearing our swimsuits underneath our hiking clothes. Just kind of stripped him off and jumped in. He had to like call me multiple times and get me out of the water because I did not want to get out of the water. I was out there for an hour just treading water and swimming around. It was so great. And eventually a lot of the tour boats left and the bay was relatively empty.

So it's kind of neat. Fish of all colors that you could see swimming below your feet. I didn't see any dolphins there, but I was hopeful. I kept looking around wondering if the dolphins would come up. We'll have more about dolphins, by the way, as we head into the final hour of the show. So yeah, I loved the fishing, the swimming, the kayaking that I was seeing and then got to take part of it at Captain Cook.

But here's the kicker. Once we get out of the water, put our hiking clothes and hiking boots back on and proceed 1,400 feet back up to where our car was. So yeah, we were pretty hot and sweaty by the time we got done. So the swimming was great. There was a payoff at the bottom when you got down to the bay.

But by the time you got back up, man, you were dying. It was hot in that tropical rainforest. Thankfully, we did not run into any wild boar. Saw a ton of goats everywhere. They run the island. No joke. They run the big island.

No wild boar that we encountered, but goats everywhere. And it was totally worth the hike just to swim in that bay and see the Captain Cook Monument. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence.
