Some guy walks up to me in the middle of Munich. He says to me, This is the Rich Eisen Show. Aren't you Suzy Schuster's husband?
No. With guest host Suzy Schuster. Live from the Rich Eisen Show studio in Los Angeles. If I'm Rabel, I'm just like, here Derek, here's the ball.
Tighten! Derek Henry! Earlier on the show, Rich Eisen. Coming up, ESPN host Jeremy Schemp. 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa.
Cardinals defensive end J.J. Watt. And now, sitting in for Rich, it's Suzy Schuster. Hi everybody, Suzy Schuster here for the second hour of the Rich Eisen Show while Rich recuperates from a rough case of the mung coming off of Munich, but he'll be back in the chair on Monday unless I lock him in the guest room and back with you all on NFL Game Day Sunday on NFL Network.
844-204 Rich is the number to call. Chris Brockman, Jay Felley, and T.J. Jefferson here on a mimosa Friday. Happy to be with you guys again. I mean, two glasses in, so I'm just saying. Someone's a little bit ahead of the game. I love taking phone calls. I'd like to get a couple in before we go to Nick Bosa. So, Terzo, what do you have for us? Hey, what's up Suzy? What's up guys? What's up, man?
Hey, T.J., man, we know we've been giving you a lot of flack for the Price is Right debacle, but I'm with the guys. We need to bring in the ping-pong table. How does that benefit you, though, Terzo? Here's the question. How would the ping-pong table benefit you if I brought it in? Just by you beating Brockman at any point in time and talking about it would be enjoyable. Okay, well then that is beneficial. Okay, I see what you're talking about.
Fantasy builds character, Terzo. I'm really good at ping-pong. Hey, I just love it. With the World Cup not selling soccer, I think I heard something on NPR this morning that they can lose out on like $75 million in endorsements from Budweiser, and it just makes me wonder who's actually running the World Cup. Is it FIFA or is it Qatar? Because right now it just seems like the government of Qatar bought the World Cup, and they're just imposing their will on it. Right, yeah. You have your answer. I saw a journalist, they were threatening to break his camera, and he was like, wait a minute, you invited us here, and you want to break my camera?
My job is to take pictures, and you're not letting me take pictures. I saw this last week, and I was like, oh man, this is going to be bad. Years ago, Brazil didn't want to sell beer either. Brazil has a very tight alcohol registration limit, and basically, FIFA had to talk them into accepting selling Budweiser, I believe it was. Really?
Yeah, $75 million commitment from Budweiser to have the red and white striped refrigerators everywhere. Again, I find it very ironic that it is allowed in luxury suites, but not out for everyone else just walking into the game. Oh, is that how it is? Mm-hmm. Well, of course, yeah.
It's the upper class against the lower class, and we know how that goes, especially kind of in those areas. Also, I'm kind of bummed that we don't get football in Buffalo this weekend. Man, I would be there. I'd bundle up, I would want to be in that snow. I think it would just be awesome, and I kind of feel that we're being kind of robbed of that, but seeing how much snow that Von Miller's truck is buried under, I kind of get it.
Yeah, see, I agree. I think Buffalo would have shown up, but I think some of the players may have had to put on snowshoes to get out there. You know, when the Bills first put out plans for the new stadium, I don't know if you remember this, Chris, I immediately said on there, well, why don't they have a dome?
Seriously? And then on Twitter, when I still added Twitter, people just were like, no, we don't want a dome, we want the elements, blah, blah, blah. Well, you know, if this happens again and you had a dome, you wouldn't have to worry about going to Detroit.
Well, exactly, exactly. I think it's just kind of a bummer, but I think at least at this point, Gabe Davis hopefully gets in the end zone because I have him on my fantasy team as well, and I got to represent the Carl's League. I got Gabe Davis, so does Brockman, so does Rich. So do I.
We're all Team Gabe Davis. Hey, Terzo, thanks for calling in. I really appreciate it. Be well, brother. Thanks, guys. Enjoy your mimosas. Thank you.
Thank you, brother. TJ's having a good time with this. We will take all of your calls, but first, before we do that, I want to get to a conversation that Nick Bosa had with Rich. He is on the Mercedes-Benz van's phone line. This is a conversation from a day ago with Nick Bosa and Rich. Here we go. He's joining me here on the Rich Eisen Show in advance of the San Francisco 49ers, taking on Arizona in the final International Series Game of the Year, this one in Mexico City.
He is the perennial Pro Bowler from San Francisco, Nick Bosa. How are you, sir? Doing fantastic. It sounds like you are. I'll be honest.
It sounds like you were doing exactly that. How is the current stretch of the 49ers season reminiscent to you to, say, last year's run and the Super Bowl run of a couple of years ago? Nick? You know, I think it's still early. I think December football and the end of November here is really when you figure out where you're headed, but I love where we're at for sure. I see just as much potential in this team as those other teams for sure. I think we're still putting it all together as a team, and it was nice this past week to get some guys back on offense, so it felt like the full stable guys in there. So, you know, I'm loving our team, and I'm liking how we've bounced back from some of the hard times that we faced early this year. Yeah, I'm just excited to keep it rolling. But it does seem to me you're rolling on defense right now.
Are you not? Do you think that there's room for more improvement on that front, Nick? Definitely room for improvement always. I think we've had two pretty darn good games where we've really settled down in the second half and not really allowed much. But I think it's just a matter of being that rock for the team and our offense having that confidence that they don't have to score every time because we're going to hold them no matter what the talent is on the other side. We had some lapses throughout that three-game stretch early on after we started out really hot, and I think we're getting back to who we are.
Okay, and who you are. I mean, last year you came so close to the Super Bowl a couple years ago. You made it, and if you want to talk about a through line, it definitely is the defense balling out. And then there's Jimmy G. How has he brought, I guess, some stability to what you guys have done and continuity to what you guys have done, Nick? Yeah, I mean, we love Jimmy. We always have, and he's been our guy. This year started off different with Trey, and when Kyle made the decision to bring Jimmy back in as the backup, it really gave us some security feeling, just knowing that in a league where quarterbacks mean so much, if one does go down, we have a guy who's experienced and is a big-time winner. So it was great news to all of us. And unfortunately, it did happen like that, and Jimmy's our guy now. So yeah, I mean, he's brought us as far as we could possibly go, other than winning it all.
So we have extreme confidence in him and also the guys that surround him. I've got Nick Bosa of the San Francisco 49ers here on the Rich Eisen Show in advance of the Monday Nighter that you'll be able to also hear on Westwood One, just like this show on so many stations, taking on the Arizona Cardinals. And in that game in which Trey Lance went out for the season, that was a win over Seattle. Seattle just lost in Germany, and now they're on a bye week. Do you have an opportunity to take over first place in this division? Is that something that you guys are discussing right now, Nick, for Monday? I don't think it's being discussed too much, but we were obviously watching that.
Well, not watching it, but watching the score of it, that game in Germany, I think it was. And you always like to see your division lose. But we know that it's going to come down to those division games late in the year is really when it's going to be decided. So I think we got Seattle later on at their place, and then obviously two games against Arizona still. It was a long way to go before playoff pictures set, and our goal is always just to get in.
But winning the division is definitely also a big goal of ours. Well, you missed, if you didn't watch the broadcast, you missed a hell of a performance of who was calling the game, Nick. That was me. I was calling the game in Germany.
That was very nice. Did you make the trip? Oh, I did. I made it there. I'm still jet lagged out of my skull right now.
But you missed it, though, is all I'm saying. I can send you a link if you're interested. Yeah, I think that's how I'll spend my off day.
Yeah, you should. That's not a bad deal. Nick Bosey here on The Rich Eisen Show. There was some talk of that game about the turf that they were playing on. And I know you and several others, George Kittle, a teammate of yours, and many other prominent players in the league are talking about the playing surfaces in the NFL right now.
And I'd love to give you the floor on what you have been talking about with your colleagues and want fans to know about the playing surfaces that you're on. I mean, it's just at this point of where the NFL is at with all the money we make. And obviously the old crusty veterans could call us soft for even talking about it. But that's just silly for not wanting to improve the situation for the players. I mean, a lot of guys have these injuries. And it's not just the acute injuries that happen on the field from the sticky turf or whatever it is. It's the wear and tear from when you're a little kid being on turf all day and then going to high school and being on turf like that stuff is it's not a natural surface. It doesn't have a root system that tears and moves with you while you're moving and takes some of that brunt out of your body.
It just goes straight into your joints. And I'm sure coaches could tell you just from standing on it all day that there's a difference there. So, I mean, it's just you watch soccer, you watch rugby and all these sports, and then you look at the NFL who probably makes close to the same money or more.
I'm not exactly sure. And we can't have 32 teams that play on grass. It's weird to me, and I've dealt with injuries from it, so those are things that last a lifetime. I mean, getting surgery is something that you're going to be dealing with for the rest of your life, whether it's a successful surgery or not.
It's very a big passion of mine to try and get as much movement towards that as I can, but who knows? Well, I know that the slit, firm, or turf fields that the NFLPA is talking about specifically, one of them is in New Jersey in MetLife where you got hurt a couple of years ago and definitely affected you and the entire season of the 49ers in that respect as well. Nick, have you spoken to the man who signs the checks there in Jed York about this very subject? Have you had conversations with him on this?
Yeah, I have. I've talked to Jed about it, and obviously we play on grass, and he's one of the owners that really takes care of his players, and that's just one of his top priorities. I mean, I don't want it to become a just that turf is bad conversation because we should all be on grass. It's not like halfway, let's get this better turf.
Put us on grass, roll it out every game. I don't know. That's just my take on it. Yeah, sure.
So is there any effect that you think you're going to have on this? I mean, what do you think? Because it was quite a social media blitz.
You, Kettle, Cooper Cupp, just to name three. There were so many of them I saw. Yeah, I mean, it seems like this is more than ever like you're hearing a lot about it.
So it's definitely in the minds of a lot of people. It's just hard to make changes in this league. I mean, when you go through the CBA process and you're negotiating and you realize just how hard it is to get anything done as a players association and something that's going to cost a lot of money.
It seems like a long shot just because it's been the way it is for so long. But it'd be great if somehow we could get a rule in there that maybe like any new stadiums that are built have to be grass or so eventually it'll be the way we want it. But yeah, I mean, I play on grass for the majority of the year and then go out and warm up on turf before a game. I'm like, how the hell is this even possible? I'm standing on plastic beads right now and about to play the most violent game men could play and we're a bunch of ginormous super athletes and we can't have a grass field underneath us.
It's weird. Nick Posse here on the Rich Eisen Show. So you've got the game against Arizona on Monday night and then the Sunday following you've got New Orleans at home. Where are you going to be that Saturday before the home game in New Orleans? What are you going to be doing that Saturday, Nick?
What do you think? What are you going to do? Probably going to be in meetings during the game.
Because I remember I was last year, which is probably a good thing. So do you want me to give you updates during your meeting? I can hit you up if you want me to do that. That's what I do for a living is I give updates. I give updates for a living.
I'm pretty sure I'll have a pretty good update. But I'm pretty excited for this one. It's one of the probably the highest ranked matchup that they've had.
That's true. There's been a one and two ever. Yeah, there has. It was back in the day, I think in the early, the mid-aughts. Troy Smith was the Ohio State quarterback. I think I said that right.
I said the so and because I don't want to disrespect. And that was at the horseshoe as well. I think Georgia might spoil the one versus two-ness of it all. But it's going to be a lot. Now it's going to be a huge game. It will. I think our defense is playing better this year. But it'll definitely be a challenge stopping the round against a team up north.
What do you think? Come on, Nick. You can say the word Michigan. Come on. Come on. Can't you?
You can't? Yeah. Do you X out? Do you do the X out of the M's too? Do you really do that too? Come on. You're better than that. Every M that I write.
I do a lot of writing. Oh my gosh. Yeah. All right. You know. Yeah. That's that's a pretty big. It's a pretty big. What do you think of that kid who dominated Penn State?
JTT. What do you think of him? Yeah. He's unbelievable, right? Do you speak to him at all?
Coming along. Yeah. I think Coach J is starting to get him. He killed him. I think he's a sophomore, right? I don't know.
I would like him to leave as fast as possible. And I haven't seen him play against Michigan yet. But that was one of the most dominant performances I've ever seen from a kid or anybody in defense on the defensive side. Yeah.
I mean, the stat line was incredible. Yeah. Yeah.
Keep that tradition of pass rushes coming out of the state. Yeah. I've heard of that one. Yeah. Okay. Very good. See, I just I'm trying my best here. I'm trying my best and I appreciate you calling in right now. You're doing good.
Yeah. Thank you. I appreciate it. Thank you for that. Thank you for that.
Safe journeys to Mexico and back, sir. I appreciate the time here. Good luck to you. And let's let's stay in touch, if you don't mind. Sounds great.
You got it. I appreciate you having me on. I appreciate. I appreciate you saying that. And I will send you the link so you can spend your time on the off day marveling in my ability to do more than one thing well. So I appreciate that. Nick, thank you. Appreciate it.
Sounds good. Go Buckeyes. Oh my gosh. Very good. Is this thing still on?
Thank you. That's Nick Bosa right here on The Rich Eisen Show. Oh, he had to get the Buckeyes in, didn't he? Oh, poor Rich. Nick Bosa knows what time is. Nick Bosa broke Rich's heart so many times in an interview, like, number one, not watching him last Sunday. Not at right.
Or on his off day. Number two, the Buckeyes. Number three, scratching out M's. It's a lot for poor Rich to take.

Influencer – it's a word that gets tossed around a lot these days. There is a woman who went the distance, who broke ground as the first true influencer by living a remarkable life. Her name, Elizabeth Taylor. I'm Katy Perry.
This is the story of the original influencer. This is Elizabeth the First. Elizabeth the First, the podcast wherever you listen. Back here on The Rich Eisen Show and one of my favorite guests to go to, I mean, I have a pocket of guests, right, T.J.? There's a certain coterie of guests that I like to bring to The Rich Eisen Show. And your Rolodex is deep.
It is deep. With names. With names, but not… Not just regular jabroni names either. No, but names.
Names but at the top of the list of the wish list is always one Jeremy Shapp, ESPN. Hi Jeremy. Hi Susie. How are you? You sound dejected. You sound, you need to get up and more excited to hear from me. No, I'm good.
I'm good. I was just, I'm still thinking about the Sprinter van. In four minutes, I've been picturing myself behind the wheel of a Sprinter. You were on the Mercedes-Benz van's phone line, by the way. I'm sorry, what? You are on the Mercedes-Benz van's phone line, so… No, I know.
That's why I'm thinking about it. And yeah, it was just, it really, it just, it just sucked me in and it's all I've been able to think about. I think that was Berman a second ago. I heard his voice, but I was still thinking about the van and now it's all wheel drive. You did hear the schwa. I got three kids.
I mean, I hit the room. I'm going to try it. I have two things to tell you about the Mercedes-Benz van's phone line and our Sprinter van. I love doing it from here because last week I was at the beach with my kids because it's Southern California and somebody had a Sprinter van. They made it into a surf shack. So I was in Malibu. There I was in Zuma beach and there was a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van turned into like a hangout, a Shangri-La, a surf shack.
The guy had put his surfboard rack on the top and they lined the inside with beds and they were just chilling out watching the surf man. You can do many things. Yeah. And think about what you could do because you know, for your bucket list, you could make this into a barbecue shack. That's right.
That's right. There's probably some way to equip it with some smoking equipment, maybe a big green egg. I don't want to talk about brands.
You know, some kind of Kamado style smoking. You just did. You just talk brands, Jeremy. Well, you know, I hope they're listening. How are you?
It's good to hear you. You only call me when you know you want me on the radio and it's a little hurt, but that's okay. It's a transactional relationship. I understand that. But that's... But what if I said you never call me?
What does that mean on the transactional relationship? I'm sorry? You never call me. So, I mean, at least I call you when I want something.
I actually don't believe that I've seen you in person in like six years. I think it's something like that. I remember it was, I believe this is how I keep track of time.
I think it was the day after Muhammad Ali died. Yeah. Yeah. The last time that I saw you. And you guys, I don't know if you guys know this, but Jeremy basically came with Rich and me on our honeymoon almost, actually. Here's the truth. Here's the truth. Jeremy was the last guy in the room the night of our wedding.
Remember? That's true. And then we went to Spain, whatever. And then we went to Spain right after our honeymoon with you.
So basically, I mean, it's kind of like, that's a tight ship. I was almost... You guys aren't Mormon, are you? Wow. I think, I think, you know, the answer to that one, but whatever, TJ. I'm drinking. I'm sorry. We're having a moses here, Jeremy, before we get to your doc, and by the way, I'll be in the city in December, so I'd like to see you. Before we get to your doc, is that a drop, J. Philly?
I mean, promises, promises, my phone is cold from you. This is my Bryant Gumbel moment. Let's move on to a documentary that took the attention of America to ESPN the other day.
The band is on the field. Can you just tell us a little bit about how much fun it must have been to do that documentary? Because the guys, the names that are involved in it, some of the most joyous video of all times in sports. What was it like putting this together? Yeah. Well, as usual with these things, as you're well aware, Susie, I didn't do much.
You know, the producers, Tom Gart, Mike Schaller did all the real work, and I came in and did, I don't know, a half dozen or so interviews, you know, but, you know, putting it together, you know, as a team, it was a lot of fun. I tend to overstate these things, but I do consider it the greatest moment in the history of sports, and if you bear with me, I'll explain why. I mean, you know, we've seen it so many times now, right? We're talking about the play that ended the Cal Stanford game on November 20th, 1982, 40 years ago this Sunday. Five laterals. The touchdowns scored as, you know, the Stanford band was on the field.
Kevin Moen, the Cal defensive back who scored, he's weaving through the band. They're trailing 20 to 19 with four seconds to play, okay? So Cal has just fallen behind 20 to 19 after Stanford kicks a 35-yard field goal with eight seconds on the clock, but after it goes through the uprights, there's still four seconds on the clock. Cal's got to kick, Cal's got to receive, and they keep it alive, and they score. I mean, how many football games have you watched?
How many football games have we all watched? It just doesn't happen, right? I mean, it doesn't happen the way that that happened there.
Take the band out of the equation, right? Imagine that the Stanford band was never on the field at all, not to mention the dozens, scores of other people beyond the band who were on the field at the time that the touchdown actually scored, you know, on the field of play. But just a game ending like that, a Division I college football game with full implications, and on the losing side, you've got one of the greatest players in the history of the sport, John Elway, who was the Stanford quarterback. They've just seemingly fashioned this remarkable comeback for the ages, and now you have this five-lateral play that wins it in one of the great rivalries in college sports. It's remarkable, you know, what happened, and then there's the band element as well, everything else. This is 40 years ago, but there are no cell phones, there are no replays in the moment.
Nobody knew what was going on. If you're one of the people in the stadium that day, and you've just witnessed this, you really have no idea that that really just happened, and it took hours before people saw a video of it, and could kind of process what had happened. I really think there's something about this play that transcends sports, and it is about hope, and it is about keeping faith. And it's also about preparation, because there were things that happened in the play that only happened because of the way that Cal approached that moment, and approached practice all that season. It's just so much fun to watch, and you have to think it could never happen again. I mean, I watched it again and again.
We had Ron Rivera on the other day, so I watched a little bit in advance of having him on. And it just seems preposterous for all of us who spend our lives on the sideline. Like, how the hell did the band get on the field? Well, the band got on the field, I mean, here's what happens, right? If they make the tackle, the band's out on the field already. The band's all ready to celebrate.
The band's ready to celebrate. They come down to the field, the game is winding down, and they're ready to perform win or lose, although they certainly thought in that moment, not when they started walking down perhaps, but by the time they get down to the field, naturally you think, this is a winning performance, we're going to perform. They're all the way back at the end, so there's not a lot of space at Cal Memorial Stadium between the lines and the stadium, the stands, I should say.
It doesn't have a track or anything like that, so they're kind of crowded down at that end of the field, of the stadium. And then a lot of people, as this play was unfolding, thought it was over. There was kind of a chain reaction, where somebody thought the play was over, so people started coming onto the field. There were Stanford players on the field who should not have been.
I don't know how many Stanford players were actually on the field during the play, but it's a lot more than 11. It's a hot mess. It's so much fun to watch.
It's on ESPN Plus, and I encourage all of you to watch it, because it really is incredibly well done. Everything that you do is well done. Speaking of well done, how's that for you? That's a really good segue.
Nice. Thank you. That sprinter van you were talking about, that smokehouse, Jeremy, how did you become such a barbecue aficionado? For anybody who's really bored right now- I'm flattered.
You're welcome. Go to Jeremy Shapp, at Jeremy Shapp on Instagram, because we have an array of your best barbecue moments that we have for you, and this is what we're showing is tenderloin on the egg, something or other. I mean, Jeremy, when did you become a barbecue guy? Well, you know, when I moved to the suburbs, right, I wasn't a barbecue guy in the city.
It would have been difficult. In Midtown? Out the window?
It would have been tough, I probably would have been against code, but when I moved to the suburbs in my 40s, it's kind of a rite of passage, right? You get a barbecue. The first thing that I bought when I moved out of the city was a barbecue, and some people have more healthy hobbies, you know, they might jog or, I don't know, go to the gym. I barbecue. Your dad wrote books, and you barbecue. I find it therapeutic, and I'm not saying that I'm any good at it, I mean, I'll have to let other people judge, but I do take pride in it, you know, I like to feed people, I like people to enjoy their meals, and I think I have a good sense of recipes that will work.
That's really the key. I mean, after you spend 30 or 40 hours watching YouTube videos, you need to be able to figure out which ones are going to work for you, and I, you know, I don't know, I mean, I do a lot of fish, I do a lot of meats, I haven't really done a lot of vegetables, I guess I should do that, too, but it doesn't interest me as much, so I'm willing to learn. You sound like the Al Michaels response.
Next time you're in town. Yeah, the Al Michaels response, no vegetables? I thought it was, it's no green vegetables, technically, isn't it? He isn't liking the vegetables at all. I know, I could be wrong, but I thought it was green vegetables, maybe it's really no vegetables, period? He really doesn't like any vegetables.
It's green, which is like verboten. Tubers can't count, right? Potato? That's like a starch, that's not a potato. Hold on, Chris Brockland's got a question about World Cup.
Hold on, hold on, hold on. Wait, is potato a vegetable? Potato's a starch. I thought it's a legume.
Look at that. Oh, a potato's not a legume. It's a tuber. Beans are legumes. It's a tuber. Beans are legumes. I think technically peanuts are legumes, but they, no, not potatoes.
They're root vegetables. Actual sports question for you, Jeremy. How big of a disaster is the World Cup and Cutter going to be? You know, I don't know.
I'm not sure, honestly, a disaster in what sense. I mean, you know, I just insist that they're not letting people take pictures, they've banned the alcohol sales, it just seems like it's a government-run organization. I saw the beer thing this morning, trying to figure that out. You know, there's the way the tournament is run, I mean, they've been preparing for this for a very long time, 12 years. I mean, the fact that this happens on the eve of the tournament with the beer thing, that's weird, right? Very strange. Like, you would think this thing would have been made one way or the other by now after 12 years.
I don't know exactly how that happened. You know, in terms of the way that they, you know, if you're talking about infrastructure and the logistics, I would expect it to end up being well run. In terms of the way that people are allowed to communicate, that the press is allowed to express itself, you know, those are all open questions and, you know, what we've seen the last few days is troubling.
Yeah, this is going to be, it starts on Sunday, it's going to be a head scratcher to see what comes down. But you have to wonder if FIFA, who's running the show here? You mean FIFA or the committee, the host country? Well, I mean, you know, ultimately, you know, FIFA is soccer's global governing body. Even when they were the rights, you know, it's not like they're taking over the country, right?
They are guests of Qatar and as such, you know, they're not the ones who make the final decisions. Nope, they're not. But I'm deciding to sit at your table, Jeremy, I'm going to make the sojourn out to the Connecticut suburbs to see you, unless you're in, no, I won't, I won't, you're right, but I'll see you in the city. Okay, I'll see you in the city. Thanks for calling in. And you know, you can always call me, my phone does ring from time to time. I think I remember the number, but I probably shouldn't say it on the air.
Please don't. Jeremy, thanks so much for calling in. Thanks, Susie.
Goodbye, Chappois. I mean, always, always reliable for an interesting conversation. I think anyway. I mean, I know everyone was curious about how he would transform his Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van. And I do think that's a great idea. How about smoking it up with Jeremy Schapp and he could take a Sprinter van around and drive around and barbecue in people's backyards?
Like show up unexpectedly. Don't you think it'd be a great show? I do.
Yeah. I think Sprinter van is missing out on a lot of stuff they could be doing. Like we could have a decked out Sprinter van up at SoFi Brockman on a Sunday, like doing a little show stuff.
I mean, we could be doing a lot. You think that's a joke. I don't think that's funny.
I think Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, we're talking about developing this brand with you. No, no, no. It's not a joke. I'm being dead serious. We should be up at SoFi for home games doing, you know, little things up there.
Everything. So what we should do is get a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van, get that $350 bottle of Jordan tequila, put it in the Sprinter van, deck it out like sick. And you guys could sit in there and greet fans on Sundays. I love this.
Do little remotes from the games. We go around town. Look, me and Brockman, I mean, I have more time in the afternoon than he does, but we got some free time.
You'd have to leave your house. I do want to do so in the Sprinter van. All right. I'm on it.
I have to do everything. I didn't hear that drop, Jason, because you made a drop while I was talking. Well, you don't really stop. Well, well, you know, wow.
Squad goals. Wow. Wow.
Separate you guys. Well, just cut his mic off. Shouldn't we have the Ed O'Neill drop now? Is that it? Yeah. See, he's trying to get himself over and he's missing the drop.
Is that it? There you go. You said that I literally was like deer in the headlights. I'm like, oh, God, did we disappoint him? That was one of the best moments we had.
I don't want to disappoint Ed O'Neill. That threw me. I mean, I could. It didn't even come out of a weird place.
He legitimately was like, what? So is that it? Are we done? I know.
I was I thought, oh, no, I'm disappointing Ed O'Neill. All right. We're going to take a quick break. We have Marshall Faulk calling in top of the hour.
We still have J.J. Watt. We've a lot to discuss. We have a what's the segment again, the drop that you like, Chris Brockman? What's more likely? Well, you have a Suzy edition of What's More Likely? Well, we kind of combine them with Rich because, no, fine.
We're running out of time. Don't you have something good today, TJ? I think you do. Well, I don't.
But brother Jefferson does. Oh, of course. Amen. Let us play. So let's take a quick break when we come back, much more Rich Eyes and show ahead. Just redeem yourself, Jason. Don't go anywhere.
Don't go anywhere. Let's get going. Welcome back to The Rich Eyes and Show 844204.
Rich is the number. Let's go to Kevin. Hey, Kevin.
How are you? I was one of the lucky ones that actually got Taylor Swift tickets, and I sent the proof to Brockman yesterday. I spent five and a half hours online on Tuesday to get tickets from my girlfriend to go to Atlanta.
You are a good boyfriend. Wow. Well played. And I spent more money on Taylor Swift tickets than I've ever spent on any ticket in my life. Wow.
Wow. Can you name three Taylor Swift songs? Love Story, Anti-Hero, because it's on all the time now, and No, I could not. Kevin, you are the greatest.
Thank you so much for calling. I would be really struggling, by the way, to name three. I've got Shake It Off, I've got the new It's Me, Hi, I'm the Problem, It's Me, and then I might confuse some more with Katy Perry. Let me think. If you gave me a thousand bucks, the only song I could name was Shake It Off. Shake It Off.
I mean, because by the way, I'm from New England. My mantra is shake it off. You're bleeding, shake it off. You're fine. Put some tussing on it.
Right? Jimmy in San Antonio, what do you have? Jimmy. Como estas, senora? Todo bien, gracias. Como estas con tú? I'm drinking whiskey, you're drinking mimosas.
We're the same. By the way, I like your speed. Jimmy, what do you got? You want to drop a brand on us? What are you drinking right now? Happy Van Leekel.
No, you don't. I drink cheap stuff, I work in the business, and I'm on radio, so I can't afford the good stuff. What was the stuff that Dan Patrick bought up yesterday?
We are also on radio, Jimmy. No, the Dan Patrick, the Pappy Van Winkle is not cheap, people. Really? Not cheap. Don't do it.
No, I'll be honest. I'm single, so I have money. I will find Pappy Van Winkle. I'd buy it. I'd splurge for that.
I would buy it for the name Malone. What a ridiculous name. I love it.
Well, Suze, I wanted to ask you a question, best mom ever, reservation maker, master. Are you able to imitate Rich's voice when he talks to the dogs? He's more like, hold on, let me think, let me channel.
Hold on. Because you know he hasn't shared that with us. Hi, D. Hi, D. That's the one on the left. And the other one will say, let me think.
Dylan's easy, because we call her D. And the new song is like, hi, it's D. She's the problem, it's D. But for Wagus, for Halo, the one on the right, he'd be like, Halo, halo, halo, halo. He goes up a register talking to the dogs, I'm not going to lie. He's a really mushy guy, I tell you this all the time. He's a mushy guy, Jimmy.
He's much nicer than me. My dog's in front of me, she's 14, and I tell her, no, you have enough food and water. All the other dogs in the neighborhood are the same, stop it. No, you give her treats, she deserves them.
Her treats are her joint pills, because she's 14. I'll take her dog. Thank you so much. Thanks so much for calling in, Jimmy, I appreciate it. We're going to close out the second hour with Fantasy Gospel, according to Brother T.J. Rise up, the Fantasy Church is open. Oh, yes, yes, indeed, we are here, and we got Sister Susie in the building today, Sister Susie, so I want to say, I want to say thank you.
I want to say thank you for coming and sitting in with us at the church today. We got Sister CeCe in the back. We got Brother Brockman, and we got Father Feller today. Yes, so what we're going to do is we're going to get you ready for the Fantasy Week 11. And these are the players that you should not start. No, no, no, Sister Susie, you see, these are the players that you should have a seat on the pew next to you on Sunday, because they are not him. I said they are not him.
And that's right. DeAndre Swift of the Giants, he is not him this week. He's been at 10 total touches or less. Brockman for the last few weeks and at Chicago, he did have six carries, six yards and a touchdown. But it's Jamal Williams.
It seems like he's getting the goal line, seems like he's getting the run. I'd sit DeAndre down, D.J. Moore, you know, Baker's coming back and D.J. Moore did not play well with Baker at quarterback.
He averaged just eight and a half points per game. That's if you were in the PPR league and you should be. Let's be honest. I don't like that, Chris. I'm going to say sit brother more down. And Matthew Stafford, believe it or not, look, Cooper Cup is not playing. I don't know what's going on with this Rams offense, Chris.
And Stafford's barely averaging 13 fantasy points a game. So I'm going to say Deacon Stafford should have a seat on the pew. And now for the players that will take you to the land of milk and honey, Sister Susie. Yes, these players are the ones who will take you to the land of glory. And they are Cadaire's Tony.
All right. Of the of the Chiefs. Think about it, Chris.
I like that. Juju had a concussion. He got what we call Viceroy last week. That was awful.
Marco Harmon, I think he had a little issue. So Cadaire's had his first touchdown last week, a little hop scotch into the end zone. I like that. And he's got the best quarterback in football.
Cadaire's Tony should be a start for you. The Saints D. I just talked about the Rams, right? I think the Saints are going to feast this week.
And I like them as a start. And Cole Komet has been on fire ever since Chris Brockman dropped him in his fantasy league. He's got five touchdowns the last two weeks, and the Falcons have allowed seven tight ends to score at least 10 fantasy points this game.
Brother Kometa, he will lead you to the mainland of milk and honey this week, I predict. And now header gut, Susie, header gut is what we do is we take a look at something that we go. We're going to look at the stats. We're going to go with our gut for this week. I can't believe this, but Deacon Daniel Jones, I'm going to tell you to start Deacon Jones against the Lions because he's rushed for at least 20 yards and eight of his nine starts. Twenty one fantasy points in two of his last three games and five quarterbacks have run for over or scored over twenty two fantasy points against the Lions. Daniel Jones, sneaky good pick.
I don't want to take your sneaky good games, but he's a sneaky good pick. I'd say start him and also show them the way. There's just some guys you need to pick up off the wire if they're there.
Get them on your team. Trey McBride for the Cardinals. He's a new tight end one. Deshaun Watson's coming back, folks. And if you got some quarterback issue, pick him up. And Jameson Williams, the rookie from Detroit, I think he's cleared this week.
He should be ready to go. And those are the players that will lead you down the land, down the path of milk and honey, lead you down the path of righteousness. And everybody, can I get an amen? Amen.
Let us play. That was beautifully done. Thank you, Susie.
Susie in the house. I'm going to give you a chance to rest your throat after that. In the third hour, as well as JJ Watt, don't go anywhere.
So still on Roku. And I have to tell you something. I got distracted for a minute during your and no offense, I was tuned out because I don't play fantasy. Please don't call me Father Feller again. Father Feller. Are you Brother Feller?
I would go with Brother. But Father maybe sounds a little. It's like alliteration.
Alliteration. Yeah. I just avoid that title, though. You want to be Daddy Feller? You know, again. Big Daddy Feller. All right.
That works. I mean, we're going to have to have a talk after the show again with this guy, I think. So you didn't ask me why I was distracted and why.
Well, I figured you were going to tell us. The American Music Awards, I guess, is Sunday. I want to watch the Lionel Richie part of it. Is that wrong?
I'm going to be focused on that. There's nothing wrong with that. I love Lionel Richie. Lionel Richie.
All night long. I love Lionel Richie. Is that wrong? Especially to play some Commodores in there. The next Sunday night is Elton John at Dodger Stadium. Do I make Rich have a 4 a.m. wake up and then drag him to Dodger Stadium as well? Oh, man.
Wow. Is that asking too much for a guy who's sick? He's not feeling well. He's got the mung. Right.
He's got the mung. This is it, though, right? For Elton, he's like dun-dun.
This is it. And he loves Elton John. Until next time, Chris. He's dun-dun, though. Dun!
And he loves Elton John. Dodger Stadium. Hey, anybody at Dodger Stadium got seats inside for a couple of weeks? Have tickets yet? Couple of pals? No.
Oh, OK. Well, that should make the choice a little bit easier. Dan Patrick said, go on TV and say what you want. So, hey, did anybody have two extra tickets for a suite at Dodger Stadium on Sunday? That is true. I wanted some Jordans up for the longest and they came. So manifest it. Manifest destiny. Manifest destiny. Manifest it.
Yes, Lord. It could be information to change your life forever, or the Something You Should Know podcast could just be something interesting. Ramit Sethi talking about being rich. The old definition of rich had a lot to do with how much money you accumulated, but it wasn't about how to spend it. It was more about how to get it. But OK, so once you get it, what do you do with it? In our culture, everybody tells you how to save, but nobody teaches you how to spend it. You should know wherever you listen.
