Thank you to everybody tuning in all over North America live on our many CBS Sports Radio affiliates. All my people in Houston, New Orleans, Miami, Charlotte, Baltimore, D.C., New York.

Much love to everybody tuning in on the free Odyssey app. Yeah, we are everywhere. I'm not like, I don't know, who's everywhere? Is Santa Claus everywhere? Stephen A. Smith? Who?

Stephen A. Smith? He's everywhere? He likes to be. Yeah, he wants to have a, he wants to be like Jay Leno. Ryan Seacrest, he seems to be everywhere. Oh, Ryan Seacrest, yeah.

Thank you for bringing us to Kardashians, Mr. Seacrest. Yes, well, they're everywhere too. You know what else is everywhere? A lot of things. Yeah, the stuff that you step on outside in the street by mistake. Oh, listen, major cities especially.

Dog owners couldn't care less about cleaning up that stuff. Somebody else is going to do it, right? Exactly.

There you go. Well, yeah, I'm like that too. I'm spread out all over the damn place. I'll be here with you for one more hour. Have fun, enjoy it. I'm going to be gone the rest of the week. I'll catch you on Monday night.

Monday night football, that's when I'll be back. And so, yeah, we pulling up on Thanksgiving? No, Shep, I'm wrong, right? This ain't the night before Thanksgiving, is it?

No, right? That's tomorrow. Well, technically, we're in Wednesday on the East Coast, so this is the morning before Thanksgiving. It's not the night before Thanksgiving, correct?

Oh, here we go. Is it two nights away from Thanksgiving or is it one night? One more night. Well, not to be so meticulous about this, but again, we're in the morning on Wednesday at this point, so we are one day removed from Thanksgiving. It's Thanksgiving Eve, technically, for those of us in obviously the States, not Canada.

Everybody in the Midwest and the East Coast, right? Yes, if you're Central or Eastern time, it is Thanksgiving tomorrow, which is crazy. I can't believe how fast this year has gone by. That we're in Thanksgiving? It's unbelievable. It feels like yesterday. It just became 2023.

I couldn't tell you what I did for New Year's, bro. I don't know if that's good or bad. I don't know. I'm thinking good. I don't know.

You know what? Do you know what you did for New Year's? Yeah, I was hosting for you. You were here New Year's? Yeah, I was. And then the day after that was DeMar Hamlin.

Oh my God. Was it the day after? That was Monday Night Football, right?

Yeah, exactly. But I didn't come back until, what, Tuesday? You were here Tuesday, yeah. So then you weren't here for me. That was a Sunday night. Well, yes, but correct. But I was basically prepping to do you. So I hosted Sunday night, hosted Monday, which was the second. You're right. But for New Year's, I was still hosting, though.

It wasn't for you, but I was hosting, yes. So what happens? The clock strikes 12, and then what do you do? Does it say Happy New Year?

Yeah, man. Do you say it two more times? That's the tradition. I'm the sucker that hosts the last show every single time the year ends at CBS Force Radio. So yeah, I say it. I say it happy... Twice.

Yes, I say Happy New Year's to those on the East Coast, and then at one o'clock, I say Happy New Year's to those in Central, and then right when we're about to get to two o'clock, I say Happy New Year's to those that live Mountain Time. Do you just talk to drunk people? No. I'm like J.R., you've hosted every Friday here for four years. You know how intelligent... Trunks. I don't know about that.

We may have a couple that slip in. Somebody asked me where the repo man was the other day. I said, I don't know. He's snatching up cars. Well, he got snatched up himself.

David in Detroit, our boy. And I think this is a misconception. Some people have, you don't have it. I know you know the demographics. I think some people are coming around on this.

The most educated, highly educated audience when it comes to any kind of medium is those that listen to talk radio. But the ones who call on Friday are drunk. A couple of them.

Not most of them. If I sat here, not that I'm telling you what you should do, you do what you want. If I was sitting here and it was New Year's, I'd be spending two hours just recapping crazy stuff from the year, and then I'd spend two more hours letting drunk people talk.

That's it. Well, I'm obviously hosting Friday. This week?

Well, yeah, Thursday, Friday. A lot of people in the car, man. I know, man.

Leaving grandma's house. I know, I know. People getting ready to be divorced.

Couples breaking up. Listen, man. This is the time of year, man. I appreciate you allowing me to do that, your top six on Friday, because I feel like it's such a staple here on CBS Sports Radio.

For us not to do it in any given week is just not right. You should do a top six list. Top six reasons to break up over the holidays. Do it. That's a JR. That's a good one. Yeah. That's a real... Is that... Yeah?

Do it. Top six reasons to break up over a holiday? Yeah.

You need some suggestions? Oh, no. I listen... You don't have to buy gifts. You save money. You don't have to buy gifts.

Oh, okay. So not the top six reasons that cause breakups. You're saying the top six reasons we should break up over the holidays or before the holidays. Do either or, man.

Do either or. Well, see, I was going to do the traditional... You kind of did it last week. What you thankful for? Yeah, but I want to hone in on an athlete and or a coach. Things... I don't know. I don't know. Maybe you want to apply breakups to sports. Well, you know what? No.

No. Because that's your idea. You should have that in 2024 when the Patriots and Belichick inevitably break up. And then you should have the top six breakups in sports.

Man, I ain't waiting that long. If you don't do it this week, when I come back in a couple of weeks before Christmas, I'm going to do top six reasons to break up before Christmas. Okay?

And it has your name all over it, JR. That sounds good. Yeah. I got all the reasons to break up. You know, you save yourself time. You save yourself money. You save yourself stress.

Those are three reasons right there. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. This guy knows about it.

I don't know what he wants. Let's pick somebody randomly. Oh, by the way, by the way, I think you hope if you give me 20 seconds, let me try to screen this guy quickly.

You'll see what I'm talking about. You got the repo man? Okay, let me let me get to Joe from North Carolina. Hey, Joe, are you married or something like that? What am I married? Yeah, yeah.

Joe from North Carolina. That's you, right? Yeah, I'm here. How you doing? I'm doing all right, man. I'm telling what are you doing? What do you do for the holidays?

Anything? Ah, man. I do what I can.

It's usually a lot of work, work, work. But, uh, okay. You know, I am recently separated. So, oh, that was the start. Yeah, you know about saving money, you can you will save a lot of money, man. Congratulations. Ah, I had I have saved a ton of money, Jay. Oh, yeah. High five to you from North Carolina, man. Yeah. Good for you. Well, what else you got?

What else is on your mind? Yes, sir. Well, what I was thinking about is a little bit of the parody of the NFL, which you were talking about the offense, right? Yeah. So you take several weeks back, we had the Dolphins putting up those 70 points.

Yeah. Kind of historic, right? Against the Broncos. It was that 70 to 20 game, 90 points total.

And then all of a sudden, we got the Super Bowl rematch last night. And what they put up a total of what was it 38? It was 17 was 21 to 17, I think. 21 17. So they put up a total of 38. I mean, not a big number. I'm sure in the betting circles, it went under, you know, for that game.

So it's a little bit of back and forth and back and forth with that. But again, I get what you're saying there. You know, the offense is sexy, the passing yards, the passing touchdowns, the quarterbacks, but this year, my homes. I mean, he's he's still Patrick Holmes.

He's still the best quarterback in the league. I would say he is. Yes. Yeah.

However, what's your point? I'm just I'm trying to understand Joe, help me. Point being, where's the receivers in Kansas City? Yeah, receiver. We talked about that last night. He's making a lot of money.

He's making 30 million dollars a year in in Miami's Tyree Kell. There he is. Oh, yeah, he's gone.

Yeah, well, let's go where he is. That's the difference, man. Yeah. Oh, yeah.

That's the big difference. What I'm not I'm not just talking about in Kansas City. I'm not I'm not just talking about with the Chiefs. I'm talking about league wide. Certain players make these quarterbacks a bit better. Elevate that offense. Yeah. And there's only a certain amount of them in the league. You know, yeah with that long ball.

Oh my god. So, yeah, where are we in the NFL? I mean, you had the Steelers Browns game only putting up 23 in that dump fire of an offensive game.

23 total points in that game. Oh, yeah, we can add. Yeah, I get it, Joe. I don't think I understand, but I get it. I think I was just looking I was looking at the parody of the entire league. We got a bunch of ass. No, here's what we have. We got a bunch of good teams. We got a lot of ass teams and so there's a gap and there's a chasm there. It's like there's there's there's few there's there's a lot of and thank you Joe for calling from North Carolina.

We got a wide chasm between the good teams and the teams that are absolute garbage and the teams that are absolute garbage. I feel like there are more of them than we normally would see eight five five two one two four CBS. Hey, it's the repo man. Here he is. David from Detroit.

Everybody keeps asking about this guy like he's a celebrity. Hey, you're on CBS Sports radio. What's up, David? Yo, yo, yo, what's up? Jr. Happy Thanksgiving. It's your boy. The repo man.

Here we go. How many this got to be like a gold mine for you over the holidays, right? You take joy and just snatching people's cars up.

No, I don't take joy in it, but you know it pay the bills. Okay, so around this time of year with Thanksgiving. I know people are you know, there's a lot of people traveling on the roads. They're going to grandma's house and and and and family and such. Do you take more cars over the holidays? Like what happens when it's the holidays?

It's kind of my holiday too. So I take a rest. I'm really not out and about because I know people are gone.

So I really don't want to waste my time. It's like a week after then it gets gone. So after Thanksgiving you you get back to taking cars. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah, we on it. So what are you doing tonight? You out here repossessing cars tonight? Yep.

Yep. I'm out here tonight. Nothing yet, but I saw about five of them. So I'm just clearing my area. Making sure we know I ain't missing no nothing. Wait, wait, you have repossessed five cars tonight.

No, I saw five cars that's ready to go with a bowtie on them. I'm just clearing the area just in case you know, there's more out there before I, you know, call for this. So I'm gonna go for 10. Your goal is to repossess 10 cars before the sun comes up. It's not going to happen, but that's the goal. It's not going to happen. But that's the goal. I want to spot 10.

I want to spot 10. And if I'm feeling it, I do it. I do it. Do you run around with like a hamburger mask when you do this? Like when people see your face? You know, when the pandemic first happened, I did rock the mask for a little bit. But then I'm like, look, nobody want to see me outside of their house with a mask on. Let me stop.

I'm in Detroit. Let me stop. Nobody want to see you at all, man. No, no. I want to talk about that Tom Brady thing.

You feel me? I do agree with Tom Brady. But I feel like he's a little hypocritical because Tom Brady was the was the reason why we can't hit quarterbacks the way we hit him. Nowadays, we can't go below the knee.

We can't we got to roll off of them. We got to do all that. He was. I remember he was talking mess about all that stuff.

And he was the reason why we we went there. Yeah, I mean, yeah. Well, what is he going to say while he's playing hit me like he not going to say that while he's playing. I mean, I get it.

He don't play now. But but still he he should have been like, oh, yeah, let me just not talk about this right here. Because, you know, I was the reason why. OK, I hear your GPS in the back. Oh, yeah.

Oh, yeah. We move and we look. We look at. Let me tell you, David, I get more requests about you than anybody. People call people call and message me and go, hey, where's the repo man?

Here you are. You have anything to say to your adoring public. The repo man is here. And if you want to check me out on YouTube, I'm getting it together. I'm getting it together real nice. I got some crazy stuff that's about to come off. So it's coming soon.

They did face a.k.a. Vegas repo man on YouTube. I got some crazy stuff that's about to hit.

You might be like, oh, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Wow. You're about to put your repossession videos on YouTube. There's a couple of them already on there. But I got some stuff that's coming. Is that legal? Is that legal?

You could do that. Look, I can't show nobody's faces. I can't tell no names. So if you kind of see like those faces and people's repo videos, they probably a little fake. That's a big lawsuit. But I can't give out no personal information.

But yeah, they are there. I'm going to hold your bag. David, thank you for joining us.

Call more frequently so people don't ask me for you. OK. All right. Don't kill me too much.

Don't kill me too much. I will not. All right. All right. You have a good holiday. Thank you for giving everybody a break, man. OK. We want people to get home for the holidays. We don't want you repossessing the car.

They didn't pay for. Yeah. Happy Thanksgiving, man. All right.

All right. Thank you, David. A chef. He took it to another level, man. Ten.

That's ambitious. No, not, not, not the cars. He's starting a whole YouTube channel. The channel. I'm going to look it up, too.

What do you say, David? Oh, I don't remember at this point. I'm going to find it. I don't know if I want to repeat it on the air yet. Hold on. You see if I can find it first. You going to say anything positive?

Go for it. He said not to say anything too negative. No, I mean, listen, the man, the man's got to make a living.

Unfortunately, it's at the expense of other people trying to make a living. So, you know, but I appreciate the fact he said I ain't taking cars for Thanksgiving. That's nice, right? Yeah.

Yeah. I mean, and here's the thing. Like when you listen to him speak, he's an upbeat, positive, friendly human being. And when you think about what he does for a living, it's like he works for the IRS, except it's even worse. So it kind of doesn't go with his personal man worse than the IRS.

They're both they're both pretty putrid. But David, David's a good guy, though. So I think he can be doing something else in terms of making a living for himself and his family.

But that's just that's just my opinion. I'm telling him now. I'm sure he's listening like the guy's a well-spoken. He's a well-spoken man. He's got he's got an ambition. He's got dedication. I think he can be doing something else for a living instead of making other people's lives.

Repo man street fight with car owner. This is not David. Yeah, I need to find his page. Yeah, I know you do find it anyway. Thank you to David, the repo man for calling.

Now about 20 people will leave me alone asking me for him. OK. Interesting stuff. Eight five five two one two four CBS. This eight five five two one two four CBS. Hey, I'm going to take a break. And when I come back on the other side, I'm actually going to talk about some of the football that's going to take place on Thanksgiving. I'm going to get to your calls as well.

Hey, it's my last show before I'm out of here for Thanksgiving. It's the J.R. sport show CBS Sports Radio. You are listening to the J.R. Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. Thank you so much, man.

I'm going through a lot of life threatening health issues the last two years, and I always closed out my night listening to you on a couple of times. So I will say thank you again for being on the radio and being entertained. Call in now at eight five five two one two four CBS. The J.R. sport show on CBS Sports Radio.

I got to say this, so I'm going to say it. The defensive player of the week is sponsored by the Navy Federal Credit Union. Who proudly serves the armed forces, DOD veterans and their families. Their members are the mission.

You can learn more at Navy federal dot org. How about we go to this dude? It's real simple. The Dallas Cowboys just beat the living hell out of the New York Giants. Forty nine to seventeen. It was a beat down in the player. Defensive player Duran Bland. This man tied an NFL record with his fourth pick six of the season. He tied an NFL record for the most picked sixes in the season with number four.

Or excuse me, I'm going back in time. That was against the Panthers, not the Giants. The Cowboys whoop that ass to thirty three to ten. Cowboys just spanking everybody. They're going to have an opportunity on Thursday and Thanksgiving to spank the commanders in front of America. And likely that it'll happen.

Can't wait for that one is normal, right? You sit down, you watch the Lions. You sit down, you watch the Cowboys, and they've even given us an extra game. Now we got the the Seahawks going out there and taking on the Niners. I'm looking forward to the Lions. I'm glad that they're actually a good team right now. Hopefully the Packers give them a good game. And Dan Campbell. Who always is a great quote.

He's ready to play on Thanksgiving. Listen to Dan Campbell. I still think it really, it's something special. I do. I believe that. And the Detroit Lions have been, you know, it's Detroit, Dallas, and it's always been known for that. I know they got the late game now, but I do think it's special.

And it's a privilege to be able to play on Thanksgiving Day. Dan Campbell looks like the dude who'd eat that set thing that John Madden used to serve. A turducken? Turducken. Oh, what is that? A turkey, a duck, and a chicken?

Who came up with this Frankenstein bird, man? That sounds dry. That's what it sounds like. 855-212-4CBS. Dre is calling from Central Cali. You're on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, thanks for taking my call. I appreciate it.

You're welcome, man. What's up? Oh, I'm over here at the gym, hanging and banging. Oh, be careful.

You know what? This old man needs to be careful. My AC joint's killing me, but, you know, guys are- Take it easy on the weights.

Why are you lifting so much? Man, I just turned 60, man. I can't, you know, got these kids coming up. You know, I got to show them who's boss still. Well, maybe you need to stay home. I'm just saying, if you got to worry about kids whooping your ass, then stay home. Oh, no, no, no, no, no. I'm not whipping my ass, not at all. I'm coming up and trying to show the old man, you know, that they're gaining on me. All right.

Well, listen, man, them kids are going to be long- Well, never mind. What do you got to say about some football? Okay, Niners in Seattle. Big Niner fan.

I'm not overconfident. They always have problems up north. Seattle's got our number a lot. I was surprised we swept them last year.

Actually, we beat them three times. But the Niners interior, Banks and Buford are not going to play. And I'm scared right there. If you want to find any type of solace, Aaron Donald did half the work when he fell on Gino Smith the other day, okay? Well, is Gino going to play? And I know Kenneth Walker went out early in the first quarter. I'm not sure if he's going to play either. Yeah, well, Pete Carroll actually gave an update on him. And Pete Carroll said Gino is going to be out, he's going to be participating. Man, I wouldn't be worried about the 49ers.

It's still early enough in the season that they can go out there and get themselves together. And so how about this? I want you to listen to Kyle Shanahan. He was talking about everybody going up north, in particular Brock Purdy.

Take a listen to this, Dre. He's been to some loud places too, but Seattle is always right there as the loudest, if not tied for it. And you can always tell people how loud it is, but they don't know until they go there. And he went there so he knows what we're talking about, so I don't have to stress the importance of it to him. He's going to be doing it to our guys for these two days.

Yeah. Let's listen to Pete Carroll as well. Pete Carroll, Seattle Seahawks coach, talking about how they plan to stack up and fair against those Niners. I like where we are. I like where we are. What we've done with coverage-wise and system-wise, this team really does check you out. They'll check out your scheme, and so we give them a lot of credit and have a lot of respect for them, but I feel like we're much farther along than we were, yeah. Would you say coverage is the biggest jump in that regard or somewhere else, maybe? It's the connection of it all, but we're much cleaner coverage-wise, and we're much more consistent at the line of scrimmage than we were in our fits and all of that.

We've cleaned it up and been very demanding of how precise we need to be in it, and it's worked out, so we've had pretty good results there. Hey, Dre. It's a long season, man. I wouldn't worry about no damn Seahawks, okay?

Nah, nah. I'm just a bit worried that they might be looking passing because the week after that is the game against Philly. That's going to be the game of the year for the Niners right there. Well, hopefully Hassan Redick doesn't meet Brock Purdy's elbow again, okay? Hey, man. My man Brock, he is the man. What'd you think about that perfect passer rating the other day?

What am I supposed to say? A perfect passer rating is bad? Of course. I think Brock Purdy is great.

I think people need to show him some love. Hey, I got a more important question. Before you go in the gym, do you use pre-workout? I just made a protein shake. Back in the day, Shep used to blend me one up there on the right there, your producer right there. Got much love for Shep. He's a great guy. Well, thank you, Dre. Appreciate you, man.

I take me a protein shake before and after, and I appreciate you. Good show, and you have a great Thanksgiving. You too, Dre. Thank you.

Have a good workout. Shep, what does that man talk about? So, back in the day, Pharrell, we used to have this, like, someone would say, like, pour me a shot, pour me a beer. Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. Right, right, right. You don't like that sound effect. I learned that early on. Yeah, it sounds like a leak. Yeah, I don't like that. Don't play that ever.

I stopped doing it. Yeah, thanks. A while back, yes. Oh, I thought you were like his dealer or something for a minute. He's like, Shep used to make me a powder. I'm like, what is he talking about? Yeah, yeah, JR, because the three or four jobs you and I have, I got time for a fifth.

Well, listen, man, everybody has to legitimize their work somehow, right? That's one way to put it. Billy is here from Georgia. You're on CBS Sports Radio.

What's up, Billy? Hey, JR, are you really here in Atlanta? I'm sitting on Peachtree Street.

Yes, I am. Where do you think I am? Well, I just heard you say you were in Atlanta.

You know, we got a great radio station down here for sports. Yeah, I've been saying that for four years, Billy. Where you been? I know, but I only listen to you late at night and I love that older lady that drinks all the time that calls you in and cries about her football team.

And you're so sweet to counsel her. I was just thinking about it. You know what I'm talking about? I don't. Go ahead.

Yeah. Hey, do you want to come over to my house for Thanksgiving and watch some football? Let's start here. What county do you live in?

Bartow. I ain't driving out that way, man. Hell no. Why don't you come to Peachtree Street? Come to Peachtree. Well, I might do that and you give me the address or anything, but I have a special menu every year for, you know, the Detroit Lions and the Cowboys always play on Thanksgiving. And also I've got a special menu.

What's on the menu? Well, this year we're having catnip soup and we're for the Lions and we're having cotton candy for the Cowboys. You know, the Cotton Bowl.

Yeah, in Dallas, yeah. I know. I'm not one for too much of the sweets, Billy. I'm sorry. Okay. Well, I just wanted to tell you, you have a great show.

Thanks, man. Am I really here in Georgia? Like, I just left the Hawks game. Where am I at?

Where do you think I am? Oh, man, the Pacers beat them, didn't they? Yeah, I left the game and the Hawks were winning and I was like, by the time I get to the studio, they're going to be losing.

And that's what happened. Do you enjoy this sort of inner city tournament stuff? I don't know what it's all about. Oh, in-season tournament? Yeah. I think it's good.

I think the games have been good so far and I think they're going to get better because we're getting closer to the knockout stage. Yeah. Yeah. All right. We're good. I'm glad we're down there.

I love your show and Happy Thanksgiving. All right. Have a good one out there. I ain't driving your house.

You too far. All right. Bye-bye. Take care. Bye. I ain't driving.

You got to be close. I know we got people traveling miles in between states. I do not want to see an airport. I don't want to see a highway. I'm not looking at a byway.

I'm not looking at an interstate. No siree. Uh-uh. And then the weather? Shep, the weather is crap up in New York, right? Ain't it raining and stuff already? It was raining, yes. It was raining today here in Georgia. I think it's going to stop, man.

But I think the East Coast is going to be wet, man. I ain't driving through nothing. I don't blame you.

I don't blame you at all. I mean, I mean, L.A., I don't know if anyone's seen photos of L.A. I don't know if you've seen it, J.R., but it is bumper to bumper for miles on miles.

You're not moving in an L.A. highway right now. Right now. And it's Tuesday, you know, their time.

It's 10-34. Yeah, hell, no, sir. I'm playing meteorologist right now. The storm front is, oh, well, yeah, nah, the East Coast is raining depending on where you live right now. Yeah, no, and the worst part about it is, I mean, it's like that three or five degree range above snow. Oh, crap, man. So it's that really cold rain. No one wants that. If it's going to be this cold, I might as well snow.

Yeah. Yeah, listen, everybody out there on the road, man, drive safe. Don't whoop nobody's ass. Don't do don't have a road rage incident. Keep your eyes on the road.

Don't drink and drive. J.R. wisdom, OK? It's the J.R. Sport Brief Show on CBS Sports Radio.

Sport Brief Show here with you on CBS Sports Radio. Oh, yeah, I'm getting ready to roll out. You hear the answer, Sandman?

Mariano Rivera, the closer. Tonight's my last night. I'll be back on Monday night. I'm going to mind my business for the next bunch of days. And my my business some more. Eight five five two one two four CBS.

That's eight five five two one two four CBS gamma. I'm sit down like everybody else. Sit down and watch football. Hope that the days go by slow. Catch up with family, catch up with friends. Try to keep it slow motion.

Emotions run high at this time of the year. Listen, people don't get caught up. Don't fall for that old flame. Mind your business at the dinner table.

Don't insult anybody. Don't punch anybody at the red light. And make sure you pay attention when you're driving in traffic. Don't rear end anybody. Just slow motion.

People take it easy. Eight five five two one two four CBS. It's eight five five two one two four CBS.

Let me holler at you before I get out of here. Let's go to Richard from Oregon. You're on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, J.R., thanks for taking my call, man.

I listen to you guys even ship when I'm driving to chill out after a long day. And man, I just wanted to weigh in on the question about an hour and a half ago about Tom Brady's opinions. You know, I more or less agree with him, but it's actually more like my opinion kind of coincides with his accidentally. I admire Brady, but kind of like the New York Yankees, I don't like him that much. But, you know, man, I guess what I'm trying to say is Brady, despite his greatness, is a gladiator.

And the gladiator is never going to be the emperor, you know, and he's just part of a big machine. And we as fans, I'm a lifelong sports fan. And if you can't roll with changes, you get grumpy like Bill Belichick. Yeah. You know, and so much of the game changes, not you know, not so much about the gladiators internally, but the expectations, the externals, the expansion and all those things.

And, you know, if you're a purist, you're disappointed because the game, you know, like greater society, the game tends to, games tend to lean towards rewarding mediocrity by paying them a lot, you know. Well, as long as people are eating it up and people are watching, that's really all that matters. And that's what they want to continue to do. Man, you got that right. Yeah. Doesn't matter about me, how I feel, or you, how you feel, it's the consensus. And, you know, it's leaning towards being healthy, at least for right now.

So we'll see what it looks like a couple decades from now. Hey, Richard, man, enjoy the holiday, okay? Hey, man. Thank you, brother. God bless.

No doubt. Shout out to Richard for calling from Oregon. Let's go from Oregon to the other side of the country.

Let's go to Massachusetts. It's Philly Mack. You're on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, Jay.

Blessings and hopefully you and your family have a wonderful and safe holiday season, you and Shep. Like I was telling Shep when I checked in like 25 minutes ago. You know, but a week and a half ago, you guys were talking about when you started the show, how many numbers of shows you've done.

How many what? I have listened to it. The number of shows you have done since you started in 2000. Yeah, four years of this. Yeah, four years. Four years, yeah. I have listened to, brother, at least a half of them shows.

And more of the single nights with Shep when he carries his banner there on that night. Yes. And I don't call in a lot, but I listen a lot. You guys help me chill out, relax, get a perspective. It gets me out of all those things I've dealt with in my life. And I'm grateful for my friends and my family. And I met with the orthopedic surgeon today and the neurosurgeon and MRI to do a contrast. I have titanium in my back. Oh, my God. I took our disc and vertebrae and I have four screws.

And I have some arthritis, but there's also a little bit of a compressed nerve, but not a pinched nerve. And that was good news. So there's a process we're going to go through so I can be ready to go in January to national semi-pro championship with my team, the Southern New England Admirals, representing New England area. Oh, wow.

I'm 61 years old and I just get back to these kids everywhere I can. Well, good for you, man. That's a beautiful thing.

I'm glad that you said you got titanium in your back. Yeah. That's cool, man. You're like an X-man. You're cool, man. That's cool. So for a couple of minutes, man, they thought I had a screw loose.

All my friends thought it was kind of funny. Badooch. Listen, man. If somebody gave me titanium in my... You know what I need? I need titanium in my forearm. I could start hitting people. I even have it in my neck, too. I had a disc removed out of my neck for years.

Oh, wow. Are you Robo? You RoboCop? You RoboCop? Not quite, but I'm working toward it. Maybe by the time I'm 65, I'll become a RoboCop. Hey, listen, man.

If I had titanium on a body like you, I'd be running around telling people I'm the Terminator. You're cool, man. Hey, the one thing you should have done at the dinner table is don't talk politics.

Go ahead, Philly Mac. Finish up, bud. At the dinner table? At Thanksgiving? Don't talk politics.

That just makes it ugly. I get up and walk away. I'm really going to be alone in my cat.

Yeah, that's another good point. Don't talk... Listen, you know what I like to do, Philly Mac, at Thanksgiving?

What's up? I don't want to talk to nobody. Let everybody else argue and yell about stuff. I don't want to be involved. Exactly.

I'll come home and hang out with my cat. Yeah, I don't got no opinion. Man, I don't have an opinion on nothing. Don't ask me. Don't ask me nothing. I'm just here and I'm leaving. Hey, Philly Mac, you have a good one, okay? And Shep, God bless you and your family, too. Appreciate you, Philly Mac. Happy Thanksgiving, man.

You too, God bless. All right, take it easy. He's Robocop over there. I had to bring levity to it, Shep, okay? It sounded like, hey, I got titanium on my back.

I got it in my neck. Like, this guy's a Robocop. He is.

Why not? Hey, Barry Scollum from Boston. What's up, Barry? Happy Thanksgiving, brother.

Yeah, thank you. What's up? Hey, I know you're leaving tomorrow, so you won't be around for... No, no, no. I ain't leaving tomorrow. I'm leaving here in like three minutes.

Okay, sorry. You won't be for tomorrow night's top six list, which is my favorite part of the week. But anyway, Cowboys, Lions on Thanksgiving is the best thing in the world, and I love it. I know we have 49ers and the Seahawks, and it's fantastic. So I'm not a betting man, but what do you think if I throw a sea note down on the Cowboys, the Lions, and the Seahawks? What are your opinions of that? What you trying to hit?

A parlay? Yeah, I mean, I'm the worst betting man in the world. I don't know, man. I like the 49ers. I could be wrong, of course, but I don't like the 49ers, Rob.

Listen, if you want to be a little risque, if you want to be a little risque, then you go ahead and you pick them Seahawks, okay? Well, it's at Seahawks. Yeah, I know.

They're going to be up in Seattle. I know. Well, that helps a little bit, brother. Yeah, well, home field.

Yeah, but I like the 49ers. All right, so when you're at the Thanksgiving table, okay? No politics, no religion, and I couldn't agree with you more. Don't talk and listen. Just listen to your family because they're all crazy, of course. We know that. And my family's all crazy, so just sit back and listen because you have two ears and one mouth for a reason.

Do twice as much listening. Good point. Well, thank you, Barry. Appreciate you, man. Have a good one. Happy Thanksgiving.

To you as well. Paul from Rhode Island, you're on CBS Sports Radio. Oh, my God. Oh, my God. Oh, what is this? Oh, my God.

Is that a dragon? You know what? In all due respect, Chef, how long was he on hold? Three and a half hours.

Oh, my God. He was on hold for how long? I checked in with him a couple of times.

Three and a half hours. He called in at like 30 minutes into the show? Yeah. Oh, yeah. Wasn't that the guy who sounds like Peter Griffin, right? Yes.

He's your favorite. I know. Didn't he realize it? Never mind.

Anyway, do I have time for anything else or should I just pack up and leave? Ike is passionate. If you give him a 30-second time frame, I think he can make it. Can he do it in 30? I don't think so.

Let's hope so. No, he can't. Go ahead, Ike. Yes. All I wanted to say is I disagree wholeheartedly with what Tom Brady had to say. And if he really wants to show that he knows what he's talking about, bring the suit back up and get back out there. OK.

Thank you, Ike, from Indianapolis. He won't do that, though. Yeah.

Like, that's the point. He's done. So now he can say what he wants. He got it in, Chef, for a minute. I thought he was not going to do it.

But he did it. Yeah. Yeah, man.

You set an expectation and people will exceed it, JR. People are still hitting me. People are asking me about the Repo Man's YouTube channel. Hey, Repo Man, do me a favor, Repo Man.

He should host shows tomorrow. Yeah, Repo Man, send me your YouTube so I can share it, man. People are asking, what's the Repo Man's YouTube channel? Repo Man is more popular on my own show than me.

Repo Man. All right, folks, I'm done. I'm cooked, OK? I'll be back Monday night at 10 Eastern, 7 Pacific. Chef, what are you doing? Thursday and Friday?

Thursday, Friday, and my Sunday usual 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. Eastern time. JR, you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, man. You too. Who's coming up next? Oh, the great Rich Herrera.

Rich Herrera's coming up next. The JR Sport Pre-Show is done. Happy Thanksgiving. I'm gone. Bye.
