You should check out that pod as well. 844-204 Rich is the number to tell here on this program. Good to see you over there, Christopher Brockman. How are you, sir?

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, Mike Del Tufo stuck in Baby Fox or whatever he was doing last night. We good. We good. Is everybody good? We were talking about something and I closed his mic. I forgot to open it again.

Chris normally looks and will hold up his own. So the foul was on me. Hey, wow.

What a way to start the program. Way to take the foul. Take the foul. All right. By the way, there's one teammate now, though, teammate. By the way, that means you've got one more to give in the last two minutes of the program. That's true.

That's true. I'd like that for a little NBA reference. Baby Fox. Good to see you guys. How are you? How are you, TJ Jefferson? Candles lit.

What's going on over there, sir? Ready to get this day. I bet you are.

I am, too. I got to tell you this is about today. Well, it's not tonight. We still got today. Who needs tonight? We got tonight. We got tonight. Who needs tomorrow? Because we got today. We've got today.

We've got today. These next three hours, I hope you're all ready to laugh, because I just love both in studio guests, one I've known forever, one who has become a great friend in the last 10, 15 years. Our number three of this program is the guy who I've become real good friends with from a modern family back in the day, diehard Kansas City Chiefs fan, and frequent guest of the Rich Eisen Show. He might be one of our most frequent celebrity in-studio guests in the history of this program. He's a very good friend of the program. Eric Stonestreet is here. Eric Stonestreet is here, and I can't wait to hear his thoughts on the narrative that his Chiefs will go down the tubes because they don't have a long passing game.

Their offense stinks. OK, yeah, that's one way to put it. Glad you got that out of your system before your eyes. Me saying it.

That's the narrative. Also in-studio, about to join us in 17 minutes time. I've known this man forever and a day. He was one of our first celebrity fill-in hosts in year one, month one or two. Yes. And I've known him because he was on Sports Center back in the day as an occasional contributor.

That's one way to put it. Yes, he is. He's a diehard Buffalo Bills fan, and he's here in-studio on behalf of the show that he is running right now. We talked about it with Omar Dorsey the other day, the co-creator and co-writer of Bookie on Max that debuts with two episodes this very day. Nick Pichai is in-studio and. For all you old school Sports Center fans, I asked him to provide us with a tale of the tape and he has done so.

Can you explain that? Because I don't know if some of the younger viewers may not remember that. It's like, you know, when there's a big fight, there's a tale of the tape, you know, and who's got the reach, who's got the weight, who's got the height or big time football games. I guarantee you on Sunday's NFL Game Day morning in advance of the Eagles and 49ers game, we will do on NFL Game Day morning a tale of the tape is what we call it.

Breaking it down, who's got the advantage at quarterback, who's got the advantage at running back, who's got the advantage on defense. So he creates a tale of the tape between two items that you would not think that would clash with one another. And the tale of the tape is the brotherly shove versus Taylor Swift. And I would tell everyone out there watching and listening, do not move.

If you have a dial, don't touch it. It'll be great. Oh, and by the way, speaking of 49ers and Eagles, that game is on Big Fox. Oh, I'll be working there.

Well, not the game. No, I'll be there. But you'll be there in proximity.

You know, I'll be just two miles from Pico Bola. So I feel like I'm part of the broadcast as well. I'm on Big Fox Saturday. Good enough. You know, it's on Big Fox in the booth in Philadelphia.

His name is Greg Olsen. Yes, and he will be joining us in our number two of this show. Very exciting. And how about this, folks?

Talk about exciting in terms of shows like this one. In the endeavor that we. That we.

Take part every single day in the mosh pit of conversation, sports talk, takes and opinions. This is what we call. Christmas Eve. And what I mean by that is the Dallas Cowboys playing a football game on one of our work days, that's Christmas Eve, because what's Christmas is tomorrow. The reaction to a Cowboys game on a work day.

Yeah. And actually, you know, I know they play on Thursday night on Thanksgiving. That's not a work day. I mean, for me, it is.

But for most of America, it is not. But for us, we get to chew up the Dallas Cowboys. Who are they playing? What are they playing this? Oh, that's right.

The Seahawks. We get to chew that up and then the reaction to it. It's your damn act together.

That is correct. Tonight's on Prime Video, which you can see right here on Roku. Can't wait. Cowboys hosting the Seattle Seahawks. And it's the Cowboys coming in on a red hot streak. Taking on the six and five Seattle Seahawks and thus on the line tonight. The narrative that has surrounded the Dallas Cowboys. The narrative you would like to discuss, T.J. is just how good is this team when they're playing like this?

They are a plus. They are Super Bowl worthy. Dak Prescott is, in fact, playing like an MVP quarterback. If Mahomes had the numbers over the last six weeks that Dak Prescott has been having. If Jalen Hurts had the numbers over the last six weeks. And Josh Allen and just name them name elite quarterbacks.

Exactly. In this league. Name elite quarterbacks in this league. If Brock Purdy had the numbers over the last six weeks that Dak Prescott has been putting up their most valuable player conversation. But for Dak, we need to keep seeing it because there's that other narrative.

And this one cannot be denied. It's the one that the Cowboys bristle at my playmaker was asked this very question on game day morning on Sunday, and he got pissed. He doesn't want to talk about this because it's not right based on what they've been playing over the last six plus weeks.

It is the annual. Crowning of a team that is peaking. To say for some. Who have they really be? Because tonight.

Tonight. The Dallas Cowboys have an opportunity. To win a game against the team above 500, which they've done only once this year, which team have they beaten that came into their house or they went into their house above 500? The answer is the New York Jets in week two. That's it. When they beat New England, was New England above 500, Chris? No way.

All right. The Giants couldn't have been above 500 in week one because, you know, they were oh, no, and they were most decidedly on one after that 40 to nothing shellacking on opening night. The Los Angeles Chargers were at 500 when the Cowboys came into this house and beat him by three.

Just up the road from us. The Los Angeles Rams were there above 500 in week eight. What about the Giants in week 10 and Carolina in week 11 and so on and so forth, Washington, as a matter of fact, if you think about it, you know, the Dallas Cowboys have just tarred and feathered at home.

The Amtrak, a seller out in the middle of the Northeast. Yeah, Boston, New York, D.C., their only missing piece is in week 14 with Philadelphia coming to town, but tonight in advance. The Seattle Seahawks at six and five, and I'd proffer to say this. When we open our gifts Christmas morning tomorrow on this program, that narrative will still be in effect, despite the Seahawks being above 500 because of the way they've played.

You guys got to beat them up tonight, sir, to avoid that. But you don't care. You don't care. And you shouldn't care about it. You shouldn't care. I don't care about it. You shouldn't care. You shouldn't care about now. You know, I'm going to say a narrative as I'm going to work blue a little bit. Yeah, OK, right. Because no matter what the narrative is, Rich, the goalposts, as we know, will always be moved back when it comes to the Cowboys. Mike, I think we've got a new draw.

We've got a new drop. This is your way of saying about this narrative, whether it matters or not. And let's see how Earth responds to that. We'll see how Earth responds to this Cowboy Seahawks game tonight. We will. I think you're going to go with the other one. No, we can't. It's a family audience. Oh, right.

Sorry. Although I think the GFI is something T.J. would like to apply to this narrative as well. You know, just win the games, man. That's all. And then for the Seattle Seahawks, because they are playing tonight as well. Boy, do they got to win this football game.

Oh, boy, do they got to win this football game. And it's not a short week again. That's the beauty of what we're doing in the NFL every year now. The league is taking Dallas and another team that plays on Thanksgiving and pitting them against one another for Thursday night football kick off of the week after Thanksgiving. So we see a Thursday night game where people can't sit there and go, well, you know, it's a short week and right now this is a full week. They've had a full week off going into tonight. No excuse.

Zero point zero. Full Blutarsky of excuses. And if you look at Seattle's. Schedule. And the fact that they are entering this part of their schedule, having lost three of four, that's the issue. They got punked in Baltimore only to survive against a Washington.

Commander's team that had Brian Robinson cooking in front of the 12s, and they survived Washington by three. And, you know, Washington has been nothing but disappointing over the last month. They go to the Rams, get swept by the Rams, give them new life. And then they start the stretch of three games that have San Francisco in it twice. And then when they're done with the San Francisco at home, which they got smoked on Thanksgiving night tonight, and then they go to San Francisco and after that, Philadelphia strolls in.

And in the meantime, look who has come on strong. The sniffing it duo. In the NFC. And that duo is Green Bay and the aforementioned Rams who have a tie break over them. The first tie break when it comes to playoff positioning and seating, and of course, whether you get in or not is division. That's the first thing they do. Are there multiple teams involved? Break the division tie.

If it's just heads up first thing. Head to head, certainly division. And that is no bueno. For the Seahawks, that they're now only a game in front of the Rams, and they would have the same number of losses as the Rams going out of tonight and into the next week. And the Rams have potentially Joe Flacco or DTR and Cleveland in their house. The good news for the Seahawks is Eric Stonestreet, our third hour guests, chiefs are visiting Green Bay. But hey, the way the Packers are playing right now, you never know Seahawks have to win this tonight, stop the bleeding, put their marker down and say the team that won more than lost over the first month and a half, two months of this season, we are still them, the team that made the playoffs last year, rallied around our comeback player of the year, quarterback and Geno Smith, even though he was only coming back from the bench and not injury. We need to show everyone Seattle that team still exists. That team still exists, and that's my Thursday night football preview. Prime video tonight right here on Roku. And let's see how Earth responds to that. We cannot wait to see how Earth responds to Thursday night football. I got what's more likely.

What do you got? Oh, we had Chris May and you know, it's it's all right. I mean, it's it's usually a letter.

Excuse me. We're a group here because that's our other new favorite drop here. Everyone needs to know about the best thing about us, though, is it's about us. Exactly. So it's not about him.

It's about us. You have it, sir. Yeah, I want to trespass on his line. It's OK, but what's more likely? The Ron Bland scores a touchdown tonight or D.K. Metcalf scores a touchdown tonight. I'll go D.K. Metcalf is how many times is that guy going to pick six? Well, how many times I understand that Gino is not looking too hot these days, man. So you say it's more likely he throws a touchdown past it to Ron Bland and D.K.

Metcalf and I'm going to take bland tonight. I can feel it. OK, we're drop heavy here. I mean, I like that. That what's more likely going out the door to our first break?

It's fun. Greg Olsen's going to join us. And there was word on the street that Greg might be interested in the head coaching job that's opened up in his old stomping grounds in Carolina.

Well, why not? And so Greg's going to join us. But obviously, the filet mignon of that conversation is the Sunday game in Philadelphia. He's going to be calling.

And Greg is outstanding at calling football games and analyzing them and making it completely understandable and not scrolling all over the screen pre snap. So it's going to be great. Come on.

It's great. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. And little baby people do that.

I'm not referring to one in particular. Is that who that is, Mike? Greg and little baby KK.

Greg Olsen, Eric Stonestreet. But ladies and gentlemen, when we come back, America will feast their eyes on the smiling grill of the co-creator and co-writer of the soon to be hit show on Max that debuts today bookies Nick Mackay when we come back.

Call click Grainger dot com or just stop by. We had Omar J. Dorsey on the program Tuesday. He's in this show that was created, co-created and co-written by the man to my right, Nick Pichai here on the show, talking about Bookie on Max again, which debuts with two episodes today.

And you could see it right here on Roku. What a pleasure to see you, sir. Thank you, Rich. It's great to be one of my favorite people. Now you're mine.

You're mine. When did we first meet? Was it back in Bristol or you never really made it to Bristol? No, I was there like twice in all the years. I always did that stuff remote. We met at.

Was it Nate Niles, Delicacy? Susie and I were going to go rescue Hudson, the dog. Wow. And we were we were on the fence about it.

Jeez. And then and then we ran into you and Robin, your wife. We'd been friends for years, but we'd never actually met. That was the first time. And I remember us saying to you, get the dog. And it's and it's the pathway to children, too. And dude, it's Susie and Susie and I left.

And we're like, OK, we're going. And we picked up and Hudson lived 15 years. He is a handsome boy. I know he lived 15 years.

I know he's a handsome, which is part of the music, the songs that Susie used to sing in him. Wow, Nick, your memory is fantastic, a steel trap. And and again, the stuff that you did on Sports Center back in the day, we're going to relive that at the end of our conversation with a fresh new tale of the tape straight from your brilliant mind to get the air duster out. It's been a lot of one of those over there. I actually need one. We've got one.

It was dusty. So let's talk about bookie here. Yes, sir. We talked about it the other day with Omar Dorsey. Sebastian Maniscalco is one of our favorite guests. Look forward to having him on to talk about what.

Where did this one come from? This is something that's always been an intriguing area. And, you know, a part of my life that I always thought was exploitable and explorable.

Were you a bookie? No, but, you know, I've had certain deep relationships as I always said, as a man in my life who I say we have shared custody of five thousand dollars. And and I actually got to my my guy who passed away this year, and he was actually helped us in a lot of our researching for this. But he's a guy I got to know over about 30 years. And he was a fascinating human being. And the more we were through, I went through his marriages. We've been through health things. You know, we really did get to know each other. And the more I got to look behind the veil, the more I was fascinated by it. And this just listen with the legalization of sports betting. There were so many interesting opportunities with this. I mean, there's an interesting thing.

It's not legal here in California where we set the show, where Sebastian's character is that guy. And in a funny way, it's relatable because, look, I'm an actor. I'm in SAG. I'm in the WGA. Yeah, we just struck an A.I.

was a huge part of that because I don't care if you have a taxi medallion and Uber comes along. We're all scared. We wake up one morning and there's something new that came along. And guess what? You're done.

Yeah. I mean, that's why I'm working so hard on the tick tock dancing. How's it working out for you so far?

Plan B hasn't gotten hasn't gotten to my algorithm. Once the fake hip loosens up, Rich, it's happening. But, you know, it's like this.

He's again, California. How will it legalize? How's that going to change the show as much as it's great for people who are watching us in this space? Yes. You know, because it's about if you bet sports, if you love sports, you're going to love the language. It's all there. We have a grand salami joke in the first episode. Fantastic. But it's also it's just about a guy like everyone else, a guy with a family, with partners, with crazy people in business, with them trying to get over, trying to raise a family, get over. Right. And Sebastian's and Omar are unbelievable in it.

And we had a lot of fun. Well, it's unfortunate that you hooked up as a co-creator with a guy with no track record with a hit in television. Wait a minute. I'm told it's Chuck Lorre.

OK. Deadweight Lorre. No, but you worked with him with mom, right? Like your mom. And yeah, a few other things.

But my worked and ran mom for him for, you know, solid eight years. And we have a great relationship. And, you know, this thing started out with us talking about something for Sebastian, which maybe started with like multicamps and natural. Yeah. And then we've we went off road.

And for Chuck and I, this was really fun because instead of open on living room. Yeah. Right.

When are we getting the Johnsons for a wedding gift? You know, we were like, no, let's kill people. Let's go for sex.

They'll die. This is you know, we do every day we wrote this. It was deviant and delightful. And, you know, if I had told you years ago when you were on mom or just getting started on mom, that you would do a show like this with Chuck Lorre and Charlie Sheen would be in it. What would what would you have what would you have told me? I would have given you very long odds. Let's put it that way. To use the bookie phrase. When that hit the sports, a lot of vigorous on that.

Closed and left town. No, that was seemed impossible. In fact, Charlie is in it playing himself. And that scene was something we wrote.

And we knew if he's a bookie in L.A., he'll have some celebrity guys making bets with him. And it was always in the in the first episode. And one day Chuck came in and said, I think it should be Charlie. And I was like, yeah. And it scared me at first. But that's when as a writer or when making bets, you know, you're on to something like, you know, I might bet Carolina this week because it makes me want to throw up. And when you want to throw up a little bit, you're on to something as a writer. And as a sports better, they're getting six, you know.

And it's just Tampa worth six in any universe. I don't think so, fellas. Anyway, you know, and but after a day or so, I realized, no, this is brilliant. And I also knew that Chuck was ready for some healing and rapprochement, if I may. Sure. And Charlie certainly was, too. And boy, was that a great move because, you know, it's funny. We had our first table read.

And those are high blood pressure events to begin with. Sure. You've got network and studio and you're hearing it.

The cast is there for the first time. You're like, not on, you know, let's see. And, you know, you forget. But Charlie is a master of this craft. And he put on a clinic that day. And as I've said before, it was like watching him just groove balls and BP over the fences, you know, it was like and it was like, this is a home run. And it was it was it was a fantastic development on all levels, human and for our show. And then again, for for comedy to have Sebastian Maniscalco, one of the hottest comedians, not too shabby, currently last few years.

And obviously the future as well. I mean, writing for him has got to be just we want to talk about spinning curves. He's got a voice. Yes, he does sing right for it.

So he really does. And he was I'll tell you the dedication. I could see how he built what he's built as a stand up. He's on tour right now playing what I call the hockey rinks.

You don't do that overnight. Madison Square Garden. Yeah, that's a Buffalo guy right there. But yeah, for a cold one for him, the the garden, babe. And I could see he took this show on the same way.

The approach was nothing but hard work and dedication. Nick Pekai here on the Rich Eisen Show again. Bookie is available right now in the first two episodes, including Charlie Sheen. My gosh.

Right on on Max, which you can see on this Roku platform or anybody that's listening, go seek it out wherever you can. So your bills, sir, on a bye week, six and six. Thrilled around.

Well, I mean, I it's it's as a jet fan, I would take Josh Allen yesterday and twice on Sunday. And he's got it. Sure. He's got a touch of the farm in him. You know what I mean?

It's fine. You know, he certainly does. No, but that's what I love about him. Look, I'm I've reached look, I've got a good life, Rich. I've got beautiful children.

Yes. I have a wife who was in Playboy and can write a great joke. Look at me. I don't deserve any of that. It's you know, things are good. But the bills are my cross to bear. And that's the case of Buffalo. And but I've reached the point where I'm like, look, I the bills.

I enjoy film noir. And that is how I understand the bills. You know, they're not feel good, happy ending movies, but they're fun. And that's it. But they don't end well.

And Bill's things in the bills don't end well, like film noir. That's OK. But they're exciting. You know, look, we four Super Bowls. Great in a row. Lost them all. O.J.

best player. Didn't end well. You know, Clint Millar, Chuck.

Google that one, young people. But being a Buffalo sports fan is tough, but it's exciting. And listen, Josh makes your blood flow, baby.

It's great. Yes. I wish that we didn't have a coach who coached scared in the last minute and a half of you think that's what it is, because I mean, because over time they're they're Owen six now and six. And that starts, by the way, with an awful holding call that blew up that overtime when they were ready to go in Houston in Allen.

Was that his first year, second year? I mean, not to go back, but I mean, but it just always seems to be something and we in the refs are definitely the 12th man for whoever we're playing. That's a fact. That's a proven fact. But, you know, we shouldn't be we should be.

We're good enough to not to survive whatever they throw at us. But, you know, honestly, I listen, McDermott brought us out of the doldrums. And, you know, I get nervous about guys where they go, you know, he was a great high school wrestler. Mm hmm. You know, it's like for me, it's like that's not as a bit of a red flag.

I mean, the prime directive in high school is to meet girls and wrestling. Yeah. You know, again, this might be this might be 20 years of NFL Network experience.

Yeah. You know, I don't think the best metric of whether a head coach is going to work out or not is how he looked in a singlet in his junior year. You know what I mean? Of high school. You know what I mean?

Like that doesn't strike me as a metric that you want to. There's something else out of his bio, you know. But what did Parcells look like, you know, in high school at his junior?

Was he? I don't want to know. OK, you see what I'm saying? But but that's the point, though, is that Parcells high school.

It does appear in the here and now. Yeah. Coming out of the by with the schedule the way it is and the offensive coordinator having been switched.

That looks pretty good for so good. Right. Just first two games.

And then Leslie Frazier, I see him at NFL Network because he got swapped out. You know, you wonder about the scapegoating there a little bit. Well, and so it's it is now McDermott's ship to turn around in the next few weeks.

Or or you think not so much. We needed to beat Denver and forgive me the Jets. No few teams like that makes sense. You know, the Philly game was great. If we lose that, you can't complain.

It was it was great. But it's those it's the team, the teams we should beat that we didn't. That'll kill us in the end. We'll see. They still got a shot. But look, my feeling is like, look, I've been a Bills fan for a million years.

Yes. Josh has his 250 million. I don't need him to play for 100 years. I need him to play for two good years and win something. Let him run. He wants to. He wants to.

He wants to do that quarterback option on every play. Fine. Are you running? Are you wearing your Bills Super Bowl T-shirt that you got?

How did you how did you get your bills? You figure, Baki, the voice of Patrick on SpongeBob. Yes, I went to theater school. Yes.

To soften my credentials even more. Yes. He got me that somehow. But it's one of those T-shirts they print up for winning Super Bowls and teams.

And when they lose, they ship them somewhere in the third world. Right. And you got one of them scored me one. And I don't know, I wore it here for fun, but I think he gave it to me in part to make fun of me. So do you wear that watching games like what like what's your. I can't get my two sons.

I can't get him to watch Bills with me. It's probably better. Yeah. Yeah. You know, that's an act of love, probably.

Right. But I'm sitting there in West Hollywood with my enormous cat, Anthony. He's 25 pound cat. And I watched the football games from the cat.

Rich, is that right? That's me on a Sunday. I was about to say, was the cat's name Salem? I don't know if I had one of those and it hated me. Never forgave me 20 years. And every time I walked down the hall, looked at me like, today's the day you kill me. And I'm like, look, if I wanted you dead, you'd be dead. He's going to kill me. No, that's my stick. That's my voice. Don't do that. I've never asked you this question.

So let me do it here on live Roku TV and radio. You're Seinfeld appearance. Yes. You were the boyfriend with B.O., right?

Is it? No, it was in the smelly car episode where they're all infused with the B.O. of whoever valeted their car. OK, I'm dating Elaine and she can't get it out of her hair.

And that's why we break up. Yeah, the great, great episode. How did you get hooked up with that one? You know, I had gone in and read for that show and done well, but not gotten the part at least twice. And then my phone rang and they just cast me. So I'd made a good impression. What other do you know which roles you were reading for? I'm afraid not.

I'm afraid not. I'm not a Seinfeld completionist on that level. Seinfeld completionist is a great fantasy team name. Write that down.

You've got a whole bunch of fantasy teams. And I remember when I first started dating Robin and she said, man, I've never really did an actor before. What's it going to be like when you have to kiss somebody? And I was like, oh, yeah, I love you so much. No one's asked me to kiss anyone since the high school play, honey.

You know, and not that guy. And lo and behold, that day I got to come home and say, good news, bad news. I'm working. It's on a pretty popular show. And I'm kissing somebody. So, you know, Julia, long enough.

Anything's possible in Carolina this week, I'm telling you. By the way, that's twice now. It's mentioned them just for you. Just because I switched out whatever the teams always rise up after they fire the coach.

But you're talking that man's language because after 20 plus years of domination or domination, is that what domination domination? OK. And you and I were both on the business end. Bill's jets of the domination. Occasionally we would poke our head up.

We had that, you know, two, three year Rex Ryan, seeing our shadow subbellic over the urinal. You see that? Do your job. Do you like that photo?

You like it? OK, so he lurks. He lurks right here. We have that in our rich show green room over the commode.

It says, do your job. It's Belichick. But he's now in the rare position.

Yeah. Of wanting the Patriots to lose because he wants Caleb Williams. Now he's in there like so close. And so if Carolina starts to win, they will. That takes the Bears out of that spot.

And he's got a clear path to the basket. But I think Arizona potentially standing in its way. Teams rise up after they let the coach go. Look what happened in Oakland. Right.

And there's there's an exhale that happens. And I don't know if they're going to win, but I just say I don't think Tampa Bay deserves to be a six point favorite. But you know, the other thing I like to look at is where the money is.

And like, you know, three percent of the money's on Carolina. You're never crazy to go against the masses. Spoken like the man who's co-created and co-writing bookie on Max available for consumption with two episodes today. All right, Nick, sir. When it was time for you to come on this program and promote bookie on Max, I said, would you please write me a tale of the tape?

Like back in the day sports center, old school. And you have done so. Yes, sir. It is now time to do this. Ladies and gentlemen, Nick Pacay and his tale of the tape.

I won't even say should I should I set up with what it is or you want to do that? You know what? I think it's baked in hydrate. OK, here we go.

He's going to hydrate because nobody wants to cramp. No, I'm doing a tale of the tape. Here you go, ladies and gentlemen. Nick, the floor is yours.

Nick, go for it. The brotherly shove. Philadelphia's dreaded rugby scrum that never fails to convert. Taylor Swift, a generational songbird whose tryst with Travis Kelsey has generated more fascination than Mark Davis's haircut. Two polarizing wildcards that have taken the NFL by storm.

Loved, hated, respected, resented. Well, the time has come to answer the essential question. Who would win in a street fight? Taylor Swift versus the brotherly shove.

Let's see how they stack up at the tail of the day. Here we go. Shake it off. Swift, a catchy song about getting past the haters. Shove the nut punch you just got on the bottom of the pile advantage. Swift. Oh, I don't care if you're a first rounder or a street free agent.

Those vines have tender grapes. The worst thing that ever happened to shove the forward pass. Swift, Brittney Mahomes. Hey, you with the camera. I'm over here. Advantage push. Oh, too close to call. Oh, OK. I love the energy and next up. Oh, yeah. Next up.

Good are Kelsey's essential Swift. Who do you think her next song's about? Shove. Who do you think's on the bottom of that toss salad? Advantage push. There are no winners here.

Wow. No pushes. Oh, you know where somebody had money on that one. There's no winners. Conversion percentage shove 90 percent.

Swift zero when it comes to lasting loss. Oh, boy. Sad. Advantage shove. And a word of warning, Mr. Kelsey, it's all glitz and gravy until you're the chorus of her next song. Oh, dear.

It's hard to breathe. Shove when you're on the bottom. Swift when she breaks into ATW, TMV, FTV. All too well, 10 minute version from the vault. But you you already knew that, right? I did. I did. Advantage Swift.

Yes. Full disclosure, a young person named Alex needed to help me with that. What happens in the pile of humanity? Swift girls of all ages burst into tears.

Shove men of all ages go nose to taint. I'm not crying. You're crying. Advantage Swift.

It's OK to feel rich. Wow. I feel people. God. Wow.

Can they get it done with eight men in the box? Shove? Yes. Swift.

God, I hope not. Advantage. Let's just move on. Let's move on.

Let's move on. Arch enemies. Swift. Kanye West. Shung the Dallas Cowboys advantage shove. I truly believe that hating the Cowboys can bring us back together as a nation. Sorry, TJ. What would the legendary voice of NFL films? John Fescenda say? Shove this unstoppable phalanx of man.

Me conjures frozen tundras and the bear fought brutality of Chuck Bednarek. I've got main shantoos with a darn good head for business and legs that go all the way down. They don't get mad at me. I'm channeling a man from a different era advantage. Shove had to send it was the local news guy in Philly.

That's very good. And finally, ladies and gentlemen, take that patriarchy. Swift her tour outgrows Motley Cruise, which I believe was sponsored by Metamucil shove. Finally, men can experience the agony of childhood advantage. Swift and empathy. So there you have it.

It's also simple when you break things down scientifically in a down and dirty street fight. The resounding advantage goes to Taylor Swift. Are you nuts? I'm not going to alienate her army of fans.

I need them to watch Bookie tonight on Max. Besides losing, let's Philly fans do what they do best. Just hate, baby. Until next time, I'm Nick Pichai, reminding you the numbers never lie.

Yeah, like riding a bike. Oh, my God. Oh, my gosh.

That's a new fantasy team name. What beer? What beer? Beer fart brutality of Chuck. Chuck. By the way, that's a little too long for Chuck.

It's too long for the Yahoo box. I think the Sables directed that documentary, right? The beer fart brutality of Chuck Bignar.

The beer fart brutality is dead. Let Steve finally turn it loose. Nick, sir, you are you are the best brother. Oh, rich. Thank you. Congrats. By the way, I would do a tale of the tape any time you want to come back and do it.

It's on power. This is too much fun. I mean, Suzy was telling some of some of the some of the folks at Cooper's baseball game over the weekend coming on and doing a tale of the tape and a bunch of guys were like, really? Oh, that's dude.

I'm telling you, there's a whole bunch of all of us out there that loved it back then and want to keep doing it now. I'm ready. I'm ready. Let's do it. Same thing for Bookie on Max.

Check it out right now on Max, which is available right here on the Roku platform. We are back eight four four two or four rich phone numbers. Vantage Bush. The football season is underway and believe podcasts are talking about it. When he went home and went to sleep, Michael Parsons is terrorizing you.

Believe has podcasts covering all 32 professional teams and many of your favorite college teams, too. And to be only producing 15 points a game. That's something that is definitely disheartening. Sideline to sideline, end zone to end zone as a quarterback. I would expect him to be acting like that. Take the accountability. Put that on yourself.

Don't put it on your teammates. Search BLEAV podcast wherever you listen. We had Jerry on the show just a couple of weeks ago, Larry, and I asked him, how come Steinbrenner himself never appeared on Seinfeld? And he said Steinbrenner shot a scene, but it was so bad you cut it. Is that a true story? True story.

Yeah. What was so bad about it? He flew out on his private jet to do the show and flew back that day. And OK, he did it.

And then I go into editing and I'm watching the show. And oh, my God, he was so awful. He was so bad. It was you couldn't use it. It was much better from behind with my voice, you know, than actually seeing the real the real guy doing it.

Right. So that was a scene where he was with Costanza, with he was with Elaine in a restaurant, I think. OK. And I had to call him up and tell him he was cut. How did that go? I called Yankee Stadium. I said, I want to talk to Mr Steinbrenner, Larry David.

You got the phone? Yeah, I said, Mr Steinbrenner, it's Larry David calling from the Seinfeld show. Yes, yes, Larry.

What is it? I said, I said, I'm sorry to tell you this. He said, come on, you can tell me I'm a big boy. I can take it. Yeah, but you slip back back in that voice. Yeah, right. Right back in.

Right. And I said, I'm seeing I've been cut from the show. And I said, it's not your fault, but it's just the end of the scene wasn't working. And that was it. How do you take it? He was a big boy. He took it well. So he told you how he was going to take it.

And he actually took it. Yeah. George Steinbrenner and Elaine, I would never have guessed I would have thought that there would have to have been a Costanza George moment. I know there was an Elaine scene. I don't know. There may have been a George scene. I'm not sure. I don't remember.

Oh, my God. All of Larry David's appearance is on the program. YouTube dot com slash rich eyes and show.

Normally I ask guests to have their phones on silent, but all thrilled to know your guest will also be on silent. Wow. I'm coming in hot as well.

It'll be hot versus hot. Wow. Pew, pew, pew, pew, pew, pew.

OK, wow. Nick Buckeye. And so it wasn't that great guy. I was telling him when he left, like one of my favorite things was he used to be a Jeopardy type game show host in living color. Oh, he played the wheel. He's done a ton of stuff, man. And he did some that 70s show. Well, I mean, and again, he was the voice of Salem the cat. I mean, he's he's one of my favorites. I love him.

He's just he's good people. And obviously really funny and and great to see this show coming on Max today called Bucky. So what the football had Peter King as a guest and topical as always. Peter King was talking about Carolina's open gig and and Greg Olsen's coming up in the middle of the next hour.

We'll ask him about all that. And and so Peter had this interesting analogy in regards to the owner of Carolina, David Tepper, firing Frank Reich in the middle of this season, third straight year. He's having now an interim head coach, which is rare in the national football league or in any sport.

This is Peter King from what the football with Susie Schuster and Amy Trask. The news out of Carolina. What are your thoughts on the firing? Yeah, I'm not too impressed with David Tepper. You know, he's on the team for five years now. And in the last 48 months, he's had three head coaches and now three interim coaches. And if that weren't bad enough, he owns the pro soccer team in in Charlotte. And he's fired the coach each of the first two years. And look, maybe Frank Reich is not the guy.

OK, but how do you go from falling in love with a guy and then whacking them 10 months later? Same thing with Matt Ruhl. I just think he's a little bit overboard. I never thought we would see, you know, a Steinbrenner type guy in the NFL.

But this guy is George Steinbrenner without the wins. Peter, is it your sense or understanding that he is listening, perhaps to the wrong people? Is he getting any input or is he making these decisions absolutely on his own? I think he feels like he wants to do something and he does it. And he's got some really smart people in that organization. And and to me, I just think and look, you know, you know, you were in this game for a long time and you know that sometimes you were going to have really bad days and you're going to have bad years. If you pick a head coach, you better know that they're going to be lean days or else you wouldn't be having to hire a new head coach. So much more from Peter on the pot, including also Amy Trask, reacting to the word that John Gruden might be in the mix for the Indiana I saw that head coaching gig in college.

Figured it was a matter of time before he got back in the mix. I mean, Amy has some interesting thoughts on that. So check out the what the football podcasts were. All podcasts can be acquired and wherever you get your podcasts. And of course, there's our YouTube page to watch it as well. And that's interesting. I know Nick Pichai was saying over and over again, you know, he likes Carolina this weekend and you mentioned certain points and things of that nature. And again, I become the a teddy getting a teddy.

The unfrozen caveman host when people talk like that. But. You're hoping the Carolina Panthers have some sort of a new life.

I am new invigoration, a new set of eyes, some shot of injection. I just don't know offense into that team. When when when Antonio Pierce took the gig from Josh McDaniel's, everything came out right there that McDaniel's was either checked out or, you know, you heard about that players only meeting, right? Like a couple of days before, right?

Or not the players only meeting where the players all got everything off their chest. And, you know, I think it was Glazer reported Antonio Pierce came out there and wanted to rally everyone around saying, you know, this season's not over. And he pointed out how the Giants in 2007 beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl after they barely made the playoffs and lost to New England in the last game of the year. And and New England became the first, you know, undefeated regular season team since the Dolphins. And. You heard that McDaniel's criticized Pierce for talking bad about the Patriots.

Don't ever do that again. But you don't. And so it stands to reason that there would be a breath of fresh air in that situation in Vegas. I'm not hearing that in Carolina.

I don't know. And that's a fascinating part about what's going to happen from Carolina here. And normally you'd be like, what do we care about a one in 10 team? Well, the Chicago Bears and the entire draft at the top depends on this. And, you know, that's a very fascinating part about it, because the Vegas Raiders, it's just like, well, we'll see if Pierce gets the job and we'll see if the Raiders go on a run to maybe get a six or seven seed because the division's gone. This one is how many games is Carolina going to lose?

Because Caleb Williams future or you want to throw Marvin Harrison Junior's future or Drake May's future in the mix is hanging in that balance. And years and years and years of ripple effects will be played off of what is going to happen in Carolina, because if they continue to fall flat, Chicago has got the golden ticket. And if it's not Chicago, because Carolina keeps winning.

Could it be New England? And what happens with Belichick? Can he get sort of the Greg Popovich? You know, sports, God's gift at the lap.

You know, Victor, one bunyama is known as a total unicorn. I mean, Caleb Williams is viewed as a to use the parlance of our tech world. Mahomes plus, right? Does that mean a lot of questions after how he played this year and some of that stuff?

But is Belichick going to be the guy to stay there? I mean, there's so many fascinating conversations based off of what is going to happen in Carolina. And for more on that, again, what the football with Peter King as the guest of Suzy and Amy. Greg Olsen is coming up in our number two of this show, and I've got a top five list of most intriguing games and your phone calls. Stay put. How wrestling really works and how you get the ratings.

Eric Bischoff and Conrad Thompson explain on 83 weeks. Too much time is spent discussing talent's age. The younger demo is just as excited about Paul Heyman or John Cena or an undertaker or Becky Lynch. I don't care what their birth certificate says. They're going to draw a younger demo because they're fun to watch and they're great entertainers. 83 weeks on YouTube or wherever you listen.
