Ask it to play the Infinity Sports Network. My main man, my partner hanging out with me here with you and all of us is super producer and host. Ryan Hickey. What a day it's been. I think that's an understatement. What a day it's been.

The top golfer in the world is arrested in Kentucky while trying to get to the golf course. The New York Knicks are going to be taking on the Pacers, trying to close them out tonight. Last night, it was a drubbing Minnesota Timberwolves beating a snot out of the Denver Nuggets. Tua Tonga Veloa. I mean, Scottie Scheffler wanted to show up to work and he had an issue. Tua Tonga Veloa might not be showing up to work if he doesn't get a new contract.

The Patriots, their new quarterback, Jacoby Percette, is ready to babysit Drake May. Spurs don't want Trae Young. We'll talk about Anthony Edwards more. I know I just mentioned the Wolves beating up on the Nuggets. Anthony Edwards is different.

Talk about Puka Nakua later on in the show. Feels no pressure. Najee Harris of the Steelers.

I guess he took a look at the Steelers schedule and he said, man, I need to lose some weight if I want a new contract. How about this as well, man? We got to wait a little while. There's so much going on. I mean, anyway, today is Shohei Ohtani day. I can't even keep track.

And then we also if you need a confirmation, Puff Daddy is a terrible human being. I mean, it's just all types of things came out today just from the morning, just from the morning. And it all started with Scottie Scheffler just being arrested. I had to go, wait, is this is this one of those stupid accounts? Is this real?

Is this am I getting punked right now? I woke up, I don't know, at six thirty seven and the news starts coming out and I'm like, wait, what? This is not real. And then we started to get the real time accounts. And I'm like, well, what what happened? This is crazy. Could have been Tiger Woods.

It wasn't. But he sucks right now on the golf course at the PGA Championship. But hey, what are you going to do, Hickey? How the hell are you on this Friday?

I mean, considering, like you said, what we saw today in the sports world, in the entertainment world, I can truly maybe the only time I'll say this. The fact that I did not get arrested today just means everything else could have gone bad. Doesn't matter. I'm having a great day. You didn't get arrested.

I didn't get arrested. This is crazy. They got Scottie Scheffler in an orange jumpsuit like you can't make this today. Is the sun out in New York or is it cloudy?

It was out today, actually, for a little bit. Wow. OK, down here, the weather is crap.

OK, it was cloudy all day. And it's just like, oh, yeah, this is the this is the tone for things. Let me let me break this down for you. We know the people.

Let's go back even further. The PGA Championship is going on in Kentucky, right outside of Louisville, Valhalla Golf Course. It's going on. It's Friday. OK, they're getting into the meet. They're round two today.

They're going to keep things rolling. Unfortunately, as I told Hickey, you know, I don't know, maybe the weather is bad just north of me, too. It's cloudy down here. I know Houston had some some storms.

And so, yeah, here in the south, the weather's been crap. Unfortunately, early this morning at about 5 a.m., 5 30, a vendor helping to work the golf course and or the event, I should say, was was killed, hit by a bus. God rest his soul. This individual was killed, hit by a bus.

And so, you know what needs to happen. They need to bring out the emergency personnel. This person died at the scene. Horrible, terrible incident. This is what happens when it's dark and it's rainy and it's misty.

It's awful. That's not going to stop the show. OK, they stop traffic. And typically, if you go to any event, any sporting event, any VIP event, if you're one of the athletes, you go through a special way. Well, Scottie Scheffler, who just won the Masters, he's won four out of the last five major tournaments.

The man just had a baby. What, like a couple of weeks ago? Scottie Scheffler's trying to go to the golf course early. This man's tea time is in the eight o'clock hour. And so he's getting there at around six. You know, get in, get settled, have some breakfast, stretch out, chit chat a little bit. You don't want to rush. Who wants to rush? The answer is.

Nobody. And so unfortunately, you know, this traffic was still stopped. There was still emergency vehicles. And he had a marked vehicle that said that he was a part of the tournament. And this is where things get tricky. Scottie Scheffler tried to enter in to the golf course, go through the VIP golfer entrance.

Right. As he typically probably did yesterday. An officer told him no. Well, allegedly told him no.

And there was a misunderstanding about whether he could go or not go. The officer then kind of, I guess, put his hands on the vehicle or tried to stop him with the car. And then reportedly this officer was dragged to the ground and suffered pain, swelling and abrasions to his left wrist after the car accelerated forward, allegedly 10 yards.

Now that's from the police department. Someone who was on the scene and pretty much gave everybody the 411 early is Jeff Darlington. Covers golf for ESPN and he was on ESPN this morning and he gave a detailed account as to what he saw because he was right there. Scottie Scheffler even looked back at him after he was put in handcuffs and said, help me, listen. Entering Valhalla Golf Club this morning, we witnessed a car pull around us. That was Scottie Scheffler was in the car.

To be very clear about the details here. Scottie Scheffler has been detained by police officers placed in the back of a police vehicle in handcuffs after he tried to pull around what he believed to be security, ended up being police officers. They told him to stop when he didn't stop. The police officer attached himself to the vehicle. Scheffler then traveled another 10 yards before stopping the car. The police officer then grabbed at his arm, attempting to pull him out of the car before Scheffler eventually opened the door, at which point the police officer pulled Scheffler out of the car, pushed him up against the car and immediately placed him in handcuffs. Scheffler was then walked over to the police car, placed in the back in handcuffs, very stunned about what was happening, looked toward me as he was in those handcuffs and said, please help me. He very clearly did not know what was happening in the situation. It moved very quickly, very rapidly, very aggressively. He was detained in that police vehicle for approximately 20 minutes.

The police officers at that point did not understand that Scottie Scheffler was a golfer in the tournament, nor, of course, that he is the number one player in the world. Well, I mean, at that point, does it matter? Oh, yeah.

Well, there he is, Scottie Scheffler. I don't want no smoke. Just go on ahead. It takes a little bit of common sense. Well, I don't know.

Let's see the two things. If you want to think with common sense, most people are going to obey a police officer, right? I don't think Scottie Scheffler said, oh, well, the police officer is saying stop and I got things to do, so I'm just going to go. We don't know that. We don't.

I have no idea. This is a matter of he said, she said. And of course, the police officer is injured right now because the police officer was dragged.

I haven't heard anybody deny that fact. Scottie Scheffler, just like I don't give a damn. Did he know he was a police officer? Did he think he was a schmuck?

We don't know. CNBC even had a report of the arrest. Listen, Scheffler was trying to drive around the crash scene up on the median. A police officer instructed him to stop, but Scheffler continued to drive. At one point, the officer attached himself to the side of Scheffler's car.

Then finally, Scheffler stopped and rolled down his window. The officer grabbed him, opened the door, pulled him out of the vehicle, and he was handcuffed. He's now been booked by the Louisville police on charges of second degree assault of a police officer, which is a felony, as well as a misdemeanor charge of criminal mischief, reckless driving and disregarding signals from an officer directing traffic. They put the man in a holding cell. They figured out who he was when he got there. He reportedly was asked if he wants the full jail experience. They gave him a sandwich. They put him in a jumpsuit and they let him leave.

Typically, you don't get let go unless you pay a handsome amount of money. His arraignment is Tuesday. They just let him go.

So which one is it? Did he disobey the police officer? Is this all one massive misunderstanding? The crazy thing is this man was supposed to start his second round at eight forty eight. He was arrested in the six o'clock hour.

He was booked at about seven thirty and he was back at the course by nine twelve a.m. You cannot make this stuff up. And Hickey, what is he like nine holes behind right now? He's like in third place any. As we speak, live leaderboard, he is nine under three shots behind Zander Shafley. Incredible. Oh, my God.

Five under today. And he got arrested, got arrested and went to jail. And he got arrested, went to jail and then went to work mugshot and everything. Yeah. What's your excuse? Well, I mean, maybe if you got arrested, you'd still be arrested. But I guess this is called what they say privilege. Most certainly.

How about this? The man got arrested, went to work, is still one of the best at his job and then had time to sit down and talk to the media. I kid you not. Scotty Scheffler, listen to this man after the second round, describe his day.

I don't really know. I feel like my head's still spinning. I can't really explain what happened this morning. I did spend some time stretching in a jail cell.

That was a first for me. You know, I was part of my warm up. I was just sitting there waiting and, you know, I started going through my warm up. I felt like there was a chance I may be able to still come out here and play. And so I started going through my routine. I tried to get my heart rate down as much as I could today. But like I said, you know, I still feel like my head's spinning a little bit.

But, yeah, I was fortunate to be able to make it back out and play some golf today. Things are real. They say you can't make these things up. There's something new happens every day. Hickey, I said this when we signed off yesterday, I said, I wonder what the hell is going to happen between now and tomorrow, which is now today. If you would have told me last night, hey, well, by the way, you know, Scotty Shuffle is going to get arrested at, you know, 730 in the morning and you'll be golfing at at 10. What are we talking about here?

And it happened. This is a reality. I'm on planet Earth, right?

Am I? That's why they say, JR, the truth is always stranger than fiction. Oh, my God. It sure is. It gets even stranger. And I guess I've never been in jail. Knock on wood.

I guess jail is better than I thought. Because Scotty Shuffler said while he was behind bars in the cell, he was able to look at himself, get arrested on TV. When I was sitting in like the holdings ever, I was there was a TV there and I could see myself on the TV on ESPN and it was get up was on.

And so in the corner it showed the time and they said they were delayed. And I was kind of thinking about my teeth. I was like, well, maybe, you know, I could be able to get out. You know, the officers downstairs and, you know, they were they were discussing how long it was going to take me to get released.

Obviously, you have to go through all the due process and everything. And, you know, I was able to kind of see a bit of the TV. And, you know, then I laid down and I started to stretch a little bit once I got my heart rate down a little bit. What? Hickey, jail ain't that bad, huh? You get to watch ESPN and get a sandwich?

And it sounds rumor than my apartment. He can lay down. He can stretch.

Yeah, that's the he's not just, you know, bending out, touching his toes by dynamic stretching, walking around, maybe a little jogging. Not bad. Not bad.

Yeah. I'm like, wow, this guy, he watched he watched more television than I did today and he went to work and he's doing good. David, he may want to do this again tomorrow. It's wild stuff. We told him he's nine holes under par right now.

He was also asked, man. Given everything that you went through today. You think you're playing good? As far as best rounds of my career, I would say it was it was pretty it was pretty good. You know, I definitely never imagined ever going to jail and I definitely never imagined going to jail the morning before one of my tea times, for sure.

But yeah, like I said, I was I was grateful to be able to go out there and compete. Come on. O.J. Simpson and he's dead. O.J. Simpson was he had it this good, right? He was he wouldn't be rolling around in no Bronco if he knew that he was just going to walk in and walk right out. A little bit different of an infraction.

But damn, I don't know, too many people go to jail and just leave. Huh? Hickey, there's there's no way for you or me or anybody to know. Obviously, there was a misunderstanding. And I don't know. I don't know if Scotty Shuffler did.

Did he miss out? I mean, the cop or the there was a cop, obviously, one security guard. The cop is going to be clear. I mean, come on. I've been told to do things by cops and I'm just like, what? I don't I don't know. What are you asking me right now? You want me to pull over here? You want me to go over here? Like, what exactly do you want? You got these lights in my face. Like, what do you want from me, especially when it's dark and it's early and it's raining and it's like it's it's it's easy. It's not broad daylight.

Everybody's sitting in a room having a conversation. There was a misunderstanding. I don't think if you have to ask me and maybe I'm too pure of a damn soul, I wouldn't think that Scotty Shuffler was being a jerk. Right.

Like. The part that I don't get is where the cop got dragged and all of this, I don't know, man, it's confusing. I'm with you like that's everything seems like just like a classic misunderstanding where, like, unfortunately, it's a tragic accident. Traffic is backed up. I saw a few golfers said they walked to the course two miles from where they're staying, took like two hours. I don't know why they're walking so slow. But anyway, they walked to the course to get there because of the traffic being so bad. So I clearly write if you are trying to get there on time and you're a lot of these golfers are creatures of habit. You want to, you know, get in hand, you know, two hours before I'm doing this, an hour and a half for doing that.

Like you don't have a lot of time, I'm sure, to be sitting around in traffic. And it sounds like there was a situation or a setup where, like golfers and important people for the tournament had, you know, were being able to let it. I don't know.

Like you said, outside of really the dragging, which is. Yeah. Is that is that being sensationalized? I don't know. I don't know. Did he fall down and roll over 10 feet or it said 10 yards. OK, right. Was he banging on the back of the door?

You know, you had that where you're driving and someone's like, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, like banging on the back of the door to tell him to stop. I don't know. They said he moved 10 yards. Ten yards is a short distance, but it's not a long distance. It's long enough to be dragged.

But how the hell are you getting dragged if he's just kind of turning into an entrance? I don't know. That's the part that I don't get. The Scottie Shuffler does not seem worried or concerned about it. But let's boil this down. Let's let's be real. There's nothing going to happen to this man.

If I'm Scottie Shuffler, you just went through one interesting experience. But ain't a damn thing going to happen. He's not going to prison. He's not serving a hard time. If anything, if anything, he will get slapped with a fine and maybe he faces a civil lawsuit, which I also don't think he's going to have trouble paying. Welcome to the world of being wealthy. Scottie Shuffler had an opportunity today to cosplay as a criminal and maybe he was innocent.

Maybe he was being a jerk. One thing is for certain. This man is probably going to win a couple more masters and make some more millions of dollars.

He's going to go home to his baby. Welcome to the benefits of being wealthy. Interesting experience.

A lot of people go through it every day and don't have the benefits. Trust me, it's the J.R. Sport Reshow here with you on the Infinity Sports Network. 855-212-4227.

855-212-4227. We opened up the show by talking about the arrest of Scottie Scheffler, and we'll talk more about him later on in the show. We'll talk to an expert from the Golf Channel.

Get involved in that. And I don't know. I think he's going to enjoy his dinner tonight. Let's just put it that way.

Somebody else who's enjoying his dinner, knowing that his his season is extending, is Anthony Edwards of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Because last night, I don't know. I don't know. I don't know what word to use. I don't know what exaggeration. I don't I don't know how much I want to stretch it. But let's just go through a few of them.

Consider this an exercise. The Wolves smack the Nuggets 115 to 70. To force a game seven in Denver on Sunday. Now, Hickey, help me out here. What are some what are some some additional adjectives we can use to describe the beatdown? I said smack.

What would you say? We used massacre last week for the Pacers. Nick, so maybe we put that one in bed. What about just ass kicking and asking? Yeah, they gave him. The Wolves gave him an ass kicking that we have not seen the likes of since 2015 when the Chicago Bulls beat the Milwaukee Bucks by fifty four points.

This was abuse. OK, 115 to 70. Anthony Edwards had twenty seven points. Carl Anthony Towns had 10 and a bunch of rebounds. I mean, you even got offense from Jayden McDaniels. He had 21 points. You want that man to play defense? If you're getting offense from him, then that is quite a bonus.

But this is where things stunk and every other element. The Nuggets were abused. Nicola Jokic had a pedestrian.

Twenty two points. The guy who really stunk the joint up was Jamal Murray. Ten points on four of 18 shooting was telling everybody about his elbow. How bad his elbow is after the game. If he scored 30 points, his elbow would have been fine. And this was just this was abuse all over the place. Anthony Edwards, you think this man was shocked that they pushed a game seven?

The answer is hell no. Did you really tell the locker room staffer in Denver you were going to be back? Oh, yeah.

They know I was in there. Yeah, I told him I said I see you all for game seven. Never one short on words. Anthony Edwards, they got a game seven on Sunday and you can go ahead and thank him. Anthony Edwards, this man has been just lighting it up the entire postseason. He got Kevin Durant the hell up on out of here. He's forced the NBA champs, the defending champs to a game seven. He is on fire. I mean, even the games he plays poorly, we bounces right back.

Chris Finch, the head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves, the man with a busted up knee sitting behind the bench. He is thrilled without his team went out there and got it facing elimination. There was two responses. You know, there was response to the last three games. But the most important response is when we got down nine to, you know, and we did a really good job of focusing and coming back with the right energy, getting our defense in place. And, you know, they were kind of getting loose and transition was what we talked about.

So could happen. And we did a really good job there. And once we get our defense in place, we like the chances. Yeah.

Yeah, they like the chances. And you know what the difference was? I guess if you want to call it one. Mike Conley came back. Yeah, the what is he, 35, 36 year old point guard? He showed up 13 points, five assists. He was dealing with that leg injury.

Missed the last game where the Nuggets annihilated them. And Anthony Edwards says, oh, yeah, not him. That guy at point guard. That's my guy. I'm glad that he was back. We got Mike Conley back. That was it. Simple as that. You got the vet on the floor.

You make the moves. The Nuggets were off of the floor by the fourth quarter. Nicola Jokic was standing up watching the game the entire fourth quarter. There were images floating online of Jokic just standing on the baseline in his warm up with his hands clasped behind his back.

Watching the game. People were joking that he's going to have like a 90 point triple double. That he's going to go back home to Denver and bust that ass. Michael Malone, the head coach of the Denver Nuggets, says, well, he didn't say they got our asses kicked. He just says we got knocked out. I told the guys at halftime, I said, Fellas, if I would have told you before the game that they'd be shooting 42 from the field and 30 from the three point line.

Would you have taken it? And they all said, yeah. I says, well, the reason we're getting our ass kicked is because they're not taking care of the ball. You're not rebounding. We're playing with no physicality and no toughness. And now they hit us first. They hit us second. They hit us third.

And so you give them credit. They did what they needed to do to keep this series alive and to bring it back to Denver for a game seven. Head coach Michael Malone is not lying. The Nuggets shot 30 percent from the field. This is as a team. They shot 30 percent from the field. Damn, that's what I do when I go play basketball and I don't play anymore.

I quit. The Nuggets shot 20 percent from three. You know what? Let me not even give them the credit. They shot 19 percent from three.

Nineteen. On a damn, damn good night, an individual player, a team will shoot 40 percent on a damn good night. On an average night, maybe you knock down 33 to 35 and you can accept it. Nineteen percent of your threes. They couldn't make a shot.

And you want to talk about toughness? The Nuggets were out rebounded as a team, 62 to 43. The Denver Nuggets basically said, all right, well, let them have this one.

We'll play the next one. I think Nikola Jokic is already locked in for this. But Michael Malone says the whole team needs to be locked in, loaded and ready to go for game seven on Sunday. To me, the much bigger issue is we have to do a lot better job of being locked in and ready to play in a game seven. And again, those are the two greatest words in sports, game seven. So hopefully our guys in front of an amazing crowd will be ready to go. And we have the intangibles the way we've had them for the last three games prior to tonight. Hickey, I got Nuggets at home.

What you got? I'm with you. I think Denver wins.

Yeah, I said it yesterday. It's tough. If you give the Denver Nuggets two chances, you get two chances to eliminate these these Nuggets is now down to one game. They blew the first chance. Are they going to blow the next one? I don't I don't know.

I can't. It's hard to bet against the defending champs. It's hard to bet against the three time MVP. It's hard to bet against the finals MVP. But look, I wouldn't be surprised if this went one or two ways.

I don't know. Maybe Anthony Edwards goes out there and has the game of his life and the wolves still lose. Maybe Anthony Edwards has the game of his life and then starts to build a legacy, knocking off Kevin Durant in the sun, sweeping them, forcing the defending champs to a game seven and then pushing them to the limits and then beating them.

These are things that you can't make up. Game seven is a must watch. I'm going to be tuned in. I'm going to be locked in. I'm going with the Nuggets.

They got the experience there at home. But I think at this point, can anybody be surprised if the wolves win? Come on. They push them to a game seven.

These are the things that you live for. It's the JR Sport Brief Show here on the Infinity Sports Network. If you want to call me, it's eight five five two one two forty two twenty seven.

It's the JR Sport Brief Show on the other side of the break. Yeah, the Nuggets stuck last night. We're going to talk about a football team that stunk last year. They're going to stink this year. And it doesn't matter who the hell they brought in that quarterback. This team. Oh, it's going to stink.

It's like a prerequisite. Has to. Uncle heavy. OK. Catching freedom. Mystic Dan, he has the fifth best odds.

I heard he sucks in consecutive races. OK, how about this for name? Just Steel.

Tuscan gold. I like this one. There's somebody dancing to this song right now, or at least this name. They got a horse named Imagination.

OK. Yeah, right. Somebody is walking around trying to get money named Imagination. I just know it. I know if your name is Imagination after 6 p.m., I hope you get paid tonight. OK. Shout outs to everybody with a little bit of imagination. Eight five five two one two forty two twenty seven.

That's eight five five two one two forty two twenty seven. I told you before we went to break the Nuggets. They stunk last night.

They were trash. I told you I'll tell you about a team that they stunk last year and they're going to stink this up. Come in season, because despite the fact that we got the the NHL and NBA playoffs going on right now, the NFL is releasing its schedule. The NFL is telling you about the holidays and Christmas and Thanksgiving.

And it's games in Europe, it's games in South America, it's games in Brazil. It's like, hey, we're the NFL. Kiss our ass.

We still got OTAs. Remember earlier this week, Kirk Cousins spoke. Kirk Cousins said, I worry about a thing. I'm going to show up and do my job. Michael Pennix is going to do his job. And this is a part of the job.

And I guess if I was making guaranteed 100 mil, I wouldn't worry about it either. And so we continue on in the week. Falcons are just trying to not be garbage. Right. We know that. Go to the playoffs, get eliminated. Everybody be happy.

Somewhat. In New England, there's a different expectation. The New England Patriots are the team. I told you they stunk last year. They're going to stink this year. They went four and 13. They haven't been that same thing that that they haven't been that bad since Bill Belichick showed up.

OK. They sent Mac Jones to Jacksonville. They sent Bill Belichick to the glue factory. And they decided to select Drake May at number three overall out of North Carolina. And a lot of it is based on potential because last year he went all that good.

Busted up. The team sucked. And the year before that, he was absolutely amazing. You got guys like Jayden Daniels jumping him. You know, people are more entrenched with Michael Penix Jr. going to a championship. And Drake made kind of sort of just a little bit.

Fell by the wayside. And so while everybody is running around at OTAs and kissing behind and telling everybody how good we are and I'm in the best shape ever and can't wait to play. And Aaron Rodgers is hanging out on podcast about conspiracy theories.

Everything is normal. Things are different in New England. Even though Bill Belichick was sent to the glue factory, they bring in somebody who's been on staff who won a championship. Gerard Mayo.

He's not out there cracking skulls anymore. He's trying to improve the football team as the head coach. And so what did they do? Not just draft Drake May. They brought in a man who started his career with the New England Patriots. They bring in Jacoby Brissett. Jacoby Brissett. He's like a lifesaver.

OK. This man played his first year with the New England Patriots. He was with the Colts for a bunch of years. He is break glass in case of emergency.

It's like, hey, Andrew Luck is like, I'm done. What do you do? Hickey, what do you do? Nothing. Well, no, you break the glass. Oh, yeah. You break the glass and you get Jacoby Brissett. OK. And then what happens?

I don't know. Deshaun Watson is a pervert. Hickey, try again. And Deshaun Watson is a pervert. You need a quarterback. You do what?

Break the glass. There you go. And then you get Jacoby Brissett. Last year, he ain't played too much for the Washington football team. They let Sam Howell throw all of the interceptions. And so New England, knowing that they have an emergency, they just need someone to keep the seat warm.

They bring in Jacoby Brissett. Not bad. Not good. Good enough to keep you in the game.

Not that bad enough to just be completely ass. He has a decent enough job in the NFL. He's either going to start or he's going to be one step away from starting. Jacoby Brissett spoke to the media and he said, yeah, I got Drake May here. They even brought in Joe Milton.

They drafted him, too. But Jacoby's just like, listen, folks, the quarterback room. You know, we don't get after it. And I think the good thing about our room is. Honestly, everybody wants to be the guy and everybody's competing to be the guy, and that's what you want, you know?

And I was talking to Aaron about it the other day. It's like if none of us wanted to play, then our room would be messed up. Like we would be in bad hands in this organization, you know? And I think everybody understands that and everybody wants to play. So I know I wouldn't be here if I didn't want to play and didn't think I could do the job myself. You know, so I think he thinks that of himself, too, and he should.

Man, it stinks. You know, when you're a professional athlete, you got to believe in yourself. And you're good, but everything is this levels.

You could be a professional athlete and there's still be people out there who are better than you. Hickey, Jacoby Brissett has to know he's a glorified babysitter. He knows it, right? He's just he's just saying that for the media. He has to know he's a glorified babysitter. He knows. Yeah, I think he's you bring him in because he's a great teammate and will not say that. But he knows his role at this point. Yeah. Come on.

Been around the block. He's like 30, 31 years old. He ain't new to this.

He continued on and he said it doesn't matter where anybody got drafted, how old anybody is. He says everybody knows their role. Thus, it's going to make it real easy for all of us to, you know, work together. How do I make it not awkward? I don't know. I just I'm just be myself, you know, like I'm not I have no ego in this to to be like.

I feel like I should do this or it's like, man, whatever, whatever is for me is going to happen for me. I know it's going to happen for the Patriots. They're going to stink. They won four games last year. All the odds makers in Vegas, they got them at about five wins. And I guess that's not bad when you bring in a new quarterback, you bring in a new coach.

So everything is new. I'm looking at the looking at their schedule right now. Cincinnati. They losing Seattle. They'll probably lose the New York Jets. They'll probably lose.

How about that? San Francisco going to destroy him. They can't score with Miami. Houston is going to pick them apart. The Jacksonville Jaguars, they shouldn't lose. They'll probably win. They got the Jets again. The Tennessee Titans might suck.

How about that? The Chicago Bears should beat them. The Rams should beat them. Miami should beat them. The Colts should beat them.

Arizona sucks. Buffalo. The Chargers and Buffalo again.

Picky, I think the Patriots might, they might win four games by accident this year. Forget five, right? I'm with you. Take the under. It's going to be ugly this year.

Yeah, U-G-L-Y. They ain't got no alibi. They ugly. New England Patriots, this is what you get. You can't win it all every year. I mean, for 20 damn years, you looked at the Patriots and you said, oh my God, will y'all stop?

Ain't nobody going to have no sympathy for y'all. It's not the Buffalo Bills in the early 90s. I mean, four straight Super Bowls.

Come on. This ain't the Dolphins. Forget the Dolphins, even though we know they've sucked for a long time, too. This ain't the Jets.

It's not 1969. The Patriots have been dominating for 20 years. For the next 20 years, they could stand to suck. Nobody would care. So if you're a fan of the Patriots and you happen to be older than, I don't know, 25 years older, you're 25 or older.

Tough luck. If the Patriots never won another thing in your life. Who cares?

They could stink in perpetuity and the world will go on. OK, get over it. Nobody cares. Robert Kraft, sorry. Hickey, I don't think he's going to be around for another 25.

Do you? Wow. What a way to end the hour. I mean, I'm going to I'm going to bet on Father Time winning.

He's undefeated so far. And I'll say, hey, listen, maybe that's why he would go to the places he thought he'd get. Never mind. Tom Brady doesn't like those jokes, right?

No. At least he's at least he's not here somehow. Well, he's not Tom Brady's not here.

So forget him, too. It's the J.R. sport brief show on the Infinity Sports Network. Yeah, I'm taking the under anyway.

I'll be here if I don't get arrested or other things. It's the J.R. sport brief show on the Infinity Sports Network. Hey, on the other side of the break, I just mentioned the Dolphins.

Tua doesn't want to show up to work. We'll discuss. It's the J.R. sport brief show. Dive into the start of summer at Whole Foods Market.
