Oh, yeah. Live from The Rich Eisen Show studio in Los Angeles. The conversation surrounding Kaitlin Clark. Big time contact afterwards between Carter and Clark.

Let's not forget that she probably has arguably the most pressure. Earlier on the show, senior writer for Sports Illustrated, Chris Mannix. 13-year NFL veteran cornerback, Patrick Peterson. Coming up, actor Kelly O'Koy. And now, it's Rich Eisen.

Ah, all right. Hour number three of The Rich Eisen Show is on the air. First couple hours. Chris Mannix is Sports Illustrated. Joined us to preview the NBA Finals.

He's also fresh back from Saudi Arabia, where he covered Deontay Wilder's, I guess as he said, maybe final bout. Yeah, could be over. And then an hour number two, we talked with Patrick Peterson, who's a free agent. Now that we've hit the month of June in the NFL, this is when rubber begins to meet the road for some cap decisions post-June 1, things of that nature.

And then you could figure out if there's room for guys. And then training camp's just around the corner. We're less than two months from training camp. We're just mere weeks.

Justin Jefferson got the bag. We talked about all of that in the first two hours of the show. If you missed any of it, don't worry. We've got you covered on the Roku Channel.

We're live on it right now, streaming live every day, 12 to 3 Eastern. As soon as we're done, we re-air all the way until tomorrow's show. When Ed O'Neill is going to be on the program, he plays Donald Sterling in FX's Clipped, which premieres exclusively tomorrow on Hulu, which is available right here on the Roku platform.

And the man who plays the long-time executive of the Clippers, his name is Andy Roser, that executive. Kelly O'Coin is back here on the show. Last time he was here was a couple years ago.

He was busy filming this show that's now out. Yes. It's interesting how things are kind of aligned when a guest appears. As Deontay Wilder's name got mentioned, the only time I've met Deontay Wilder was the first time I met Kelly O'Coin was on the set of Billions on the Fight Night episode. So, there we are. I'm standing next to Menari in front of Deontay Wilder, who's next to Axe.

He's standing behind Dollar Bill right there. What a crew. Deontay Wilder Rich also did our show in Miami.

That's right, he did. Super Bowl week. Super Bowl week. Also, Kelly is a die-hard Blazer fan, interestingly enough.

He's playing a Clippers executive. Today is an anniversary he probably doesn't want to remember, right? Yeah. 32 years ago today. 32 years ago today. What happened 32 years ago today? Game one of the NBA Finals.

Why is that important? It's the Michael Jordan shrug game. Six threes in the first half.

I think 35 points, I think, in the first half for him. Six threes and he just shrugged at Magic. He was looking at Magic, who's doing the game with Marv on NBC.

And I just remember Marv going, Michael Jordan! As you know, I'm in this business for many reasons. One is I realized I couldn't do it. Secondly, I know I had to talk about it. And third, I grew up listening and watching Marv Albert in New York. And there's different tones of Marv.

There's the sarcastic Marv, there's the understated Marv, and then there's the shocked and awed Marv. Michael Jordan again! Remember that? Yeah.

Again! 32 years ago today. Crazy. Shrugged. Now, how many people have shrugged, right?

Kaitlin Clark did it a couple weeks ago. Everyone kind of does a shrug. Everyone shrugs now.

What am I going to do? I do that, you know, when we don't win Emmys. And it was crazy because for all Mike was known for, he wasn't known for, and the three wasn't as big back then, obviously.

He wasn't known for being a three-point shooter. So that's what the shrug was like. I can't even explain it. Yeah, he's like, I can't believe I'm making these two. I'm sure they're also going in.

You're surprised. So are we close to the 32nd or the, what do we, when are we going to get the anniversary of the most famous shrug in the history of the United Center or Chicago Stadium? The most famous shrug is the Chicago Bulls security guard who beat Michael Jordan in pennies and gave him the shrug. That's the most famous shrug because it actually, that's probably the only shrug that's ever been delivered on Jordan, right? Successfully. That guy got so famous. He had passed away before the doc came out.

Is that right? He got so famous during the pandemic. Everyone was using that meme. John Wozniak, man. Rest in peace.

He became a legend. So we're probably coming up on like, what, the 30th anniversary or the 29th anniversary of him beating Jordan? Playing quarters. Quarters? I said pennies. Well, I don't know.

What do I know? I'm not a gambler. All right. So later on in this hour, Kelly O'Coin will be joining us and we've got my glass half full, my NFC East best case scenarios. We've been giving every division in the NFL its due, if you will. This is the last of the NFC, right?

Last of the NFC and then we turn to the AFC the rest of the week. All right. And we do that in honor of Bill Walton's passing. He told me to shine the light, be the light. We're going to be positive. Rich. And we'll talk about, obviously, Bill with Kelly when he joins us in a moment.

844-204-RICH is the number to dial as well. But it is a Monday. Do you know what that means? Which means it's time for overreaction Monday. Hit it.

Hit it, please. That was terrible. That was crap. That was garbage. This place sucks. Overreaction Monday's Monday. All right, Christopher, what do you have over there, brother? We got a hodgepodge because, you know, there's not a lot of football going on.

Doesn't matter. It's always enough. Here we go. What's up, guys? Happy Monday. Everybody good?

Thank you. What's up, Chris? Everybody good? How's your weekend? Happy June. Man, June. Crazy. Where's the year going?

What do you got? I don't know. All this wide receiver talk.

Yes. Someone's going to go for 2,000 yards this year. Who's that?

Baby. Someone. I'm not going to say who.

I'm going to say someone. The wide receiver's going for 2K this year. Passing league. Tyreek Hill would have got it had he not gotten injured. That's true, but had he not gotten injured, there's always something going on with these guys. Justin Jefferson was the number one player in fantasy last year.

Hey, how'd that work out for everybody? A.J. Brown had a terrific stretch.

A.J. Brown got mode for like seven weeks and then someone's going to finally do it. Which is why this is an overreaction. I don't believe so.

Not going to tell these guys they can't, but I'm just going to say they won't. That's all. And we don't even have Pook and the Coo up there. We put Cooper Cup instead. No, that's Cooper Cup.

That's Cupper right up there. No, I'll just say this is an overreaction. As the running back gets further devalued. Dude, I don't understand. Chris McCaffrey is making like a tenth of what Justin Jefferson is. I feel like I'm Jerry Seinfeld putting my head like.

That's the Kenny Rogers Roasters episode. I mean, I just can't, I can't unsee this, that Justin Jefferson, he's excellent, but he's ball dependent on having to get to him in the air. He gets the ball like five to ten times a game at most, right? A running back is going to get it a hell of a lot more times and can affect wins and losses just as well, I think. But they won't pay him.

I don't understand it. Overtime, Super Bowl, Christian McCaffrey gets the ball nonstop. Winning winner go home game in Indianapolis against Houston. Final drive, Jonathan Taylor gets the ball nonstop. And when they don't pick up the fourth down, we're wondering why the hell didn't he get it? Why wasn't he even on the field? But let's not pay these guys unless they, you know, give a pint.

I don't understand it, but I'll just push back and say it's an overreaction. What's more likely Monday? Who's more likely to get to 2,000 yards next?

A wide receiver or a running back? Why don't you save that till Friday? Why don't you just take that as a note and jot it down?

It comes to me, it comes out the mouth. I understand that. You've got to filter it and write it down. I'll write it down. We'll save it.

Save your answer for Friday. We're using one segment to tease another. Look at us.

Look at us. Yes. The next two wide receivers to get paid are going to be C.D. Lamb and Jamar Chase, right? Don't forget Tyree Kill, who needs a contract adjustment.

Tyree Kill, I saw Joe Rosenhouse talking about that. I'm sure he is. All of those guys should hold out until they get paid what Justin Jefferson just got. Um, yeah. I mean, but holding out, it's easy for you to say. Holding out. Easy for me to say, yeah. Easy for you to say, yeah. I'm saying, hold out, do not do anything football related until they get the bag.

Um, I, I would think that this is, I mean, Cincinnati's got an interesting dilemma on its hands because Chase needs to get paid and, um, T. Higgins wants it. So I, I don't think this is an overreaction, but you try to hold out in the NFL. That ain't easy, pud.

It's not easy. What are you going to watch Dallas go? You better hope he's wrong, but Dallas is going to go into Cleveland without C.D. Lamb.

Yeah. Tom Brady's first game with Amari Cooper on the other side. It worked for Emmett. And we won the Super Bowl. So maybe it worked for Emmett to get his, but Dallas had to go 0-2 first to start it.

Still won the Super Bowl. But I don't think this team is as good as that one where they can start 0-2 and just be just fine and dandy. Probably not.

We got best case scenarios coming up later. Wait till you hear mine. You're going to love it.

You will love it. What's the matter with you? Well, you can appreciate my skepticism on this, right? No, actually, I don't appreciate it. As a matter of fact, whatever is the opposite of appreciate, that's me. All right, speaking of an NFL East player, I'm going to talk about Saquon Bark.

I'm going to get there in a second. But I've been... Are you teasing within your own segment? Yes. Teasing within the own topic.

What could you? I'm hearing Matt Iberflu's talk. Iberflu's. I'm reading all the Bears stuff. I'm so... You're in. I'm so in.

You're in. I'm so in on the Bears. How in are you? I'm so in on the Bears. How in are you?

How in are you? DeAndre Swift will be more impactful this season than Saquon Barkley. Get out of here.

I hope that's true. Get out of here. The running back he replaces, not going to be as good. Dude.

The guy that left was better and he's going to be better for the Bears. Dude. Dude.

That's my response. Dude. Dude. I'm so in on the Bears. Dude. Stop it. Like winning the division. I'm so close.

DeAndre Swift will be more impactful for Chicago than Saquon Barkley in Philadelphia. Yeah. No. I think the Eagles are going to be, you know, struggle bus this year. You lost. Oh God.

Struggle bus. Who's not there? I know Jason Kelsey's not there.

The most important lineman may be the NFL last year. I get it. I get it. Okay. No, thank you. Okay. Hard pass.

I'm not here for the overreaction. I just said, dude. Yeah.

Yeah. What else? You just did. What else? I just want to be on.

I am not here for the quadzilla disrespect. All right. Okay. All right.

Some NBA stuff. That's a Penn Stater he's disrespecting. You need to stand for that.

Look, but he also plays for the Eagles, so. Oh, okay. It cancels. Yeah. What am I supposed to say? All right. Had this one last week. Didn't get to it.

Going to use it now. Because it still applies. Because the NBA Finals hasn't even started yet. That's true. I'm glad we're getting warm leftovers. Well, it's still fresh.

You've never heard it. Okay. He mill-pricked this. Now you said it. He mill-pricked this question.

You could have just... I'm oversharing. I'm oversharing. If the Mavs beat the Celtics in the NBA Finals, Luca, best player in the world, is going to pass Djokic. He won't pass Djokic, but he will have that moment here where he can talk he's the best player in the world.

I'm cool with this. I heard, driving down today, because I do listen to my buddy DP, he had James Worthy on. Worthy called Djokic.

Good game. Kareem and Magic rolled into one. Oh. Djokic? Yeah.

That's what he called him. Kareem and Magic rolled into one. Djokic should shoot the three. Kareem didn't have a three game.

Well, I mean, Magic did. Hold that. Ish. Not really, though.

I don't know. I agree that this will be said about Luca and he will deserve it. I mean, certainly if he, you know, he wins the NBA championship against a 60 win Celtics team. And Djokic didn't have the opportunity because the Timberwolves knocked him out.

But I mean, Djokic is still Djokic, don't you think? Do you think if the Nuggets had won game seven, they would have beat the Mavs or the Mavs just on one record? Well, I think the Mavs are just on one right now, and they don't deserve the disrespect of us saying of me saying, oh, yeah, they could have. They wouldn't have gotten past the Nuggets.

They didn't have to face the Nuggets because the team that beat the Nuggets stood in front of them and they walloped them. We can go home now. That's right. You can go home now. All right. A couple more.

How about this? Both the Stanley Cup and the NBA Finals, seven games. We're getting seven out of both buckets. Did you see Connor McDavid's first goal in the series clinching game? The one that was like Houdini? I don't know how he did it. It was like a magic trick. How does he do that?

I don't know. Guy's incredible. He is. I know.

After he'd been kind of slandered a lot of the playoffs. I know. It makes some of the fans there take their sweater off. I saw that. Yes, I did, too. Can I be honest with you?

I'm not overreacting on that. I saw it a few times. Can I be honest with you?

I literally am watching it right now. Hey! Hey! This is not Squid on Firewall! I did it. You're on Violation! Wait a minute. I've got to work on the Rich Eisen Show Firewall. What are you doing? What the hell? I was on Twitter. I was on Twitter. Oh, my God. A few times. Five right now. You're six.

We are not showing that video, nor should we continue to reference it. It's a family program. This person should come on as a guest. Just turn off your headlights. Rich, you like the Yankees? What? Turn on your heart.

You like the Yankees? Yeah. Well, what are you going to overreact to? What are you going to get me to overreact to here?

What do you got? Judge is going for 60. Damn. Excuse me. Let me say something to you. 60, man. Turn the music down.

Are you nuts? Turn the music down. He is on fire. Let me tell you something. There he goes.

Aaron Judge will hit 60 home runs again this season. This is not only a proper reaction. This is not an overreaction. This is, dare I say, a statement of friggin' fact. Factual.

He's on a pace for like 53. So what? I'm just saying. I was doing some math earlier. Excuse me.

You and your math. He had a very unjudged-like month in April. He struggled.

You want to talk about his struggle bus? Rough. He was on it. Rough. He was on it. But May.

May. He was rightfully. He was Winfield-esque.

He was rightfully. Mr. May means he can't play in October, so you be quiet. Listen. Don't throw me off my game here. Sorry. Sorry. I'm on a roll. That was a good line.

Listen. He was the American League player of the month of May. Luis Hill was the American League pitcher for the month of May, and you could make a case the hottest player on the Yankees is Juan Soto. So Volpe is out of his skull. This entire lineup is cooking with gas to the point where he won't even have the pressure on him to maybe hit 60.

Mr. 59 home runs in Stanton, all he's got to do is just sit back and rake, so everybody is kind of cooking on their own cylinders while this guy is 100% hitting 60 home runs again. Not an overreaction. Proper reaction. Hashtag statement of fact. All rise.

That's damn straight. I just thought of another, what's more likely that I'm going to save now? Write it down. Don't spit it out. And I'm going to save now. Save the gold, because it is gold, certainly when you start me up like that. What's more likely?

Is it a Steelers fan, or is it sitting ice on the ice behind the glass? Stop it. This guy. What? Just listen. He's now not even speaking English.

He's not even talking English. He's like mesmerized. He's like ya-ba-da-ba-do.

What the hell did I just say? Could be in the front row. TJ, you're in the glass. It's like Sonny.

You don't stare directly into the sun. All of a sudden he's an Edmonton fan. How am I not aware of this? Oh my God. What are you doing, man?

You're the hockey guy here. Two things are certain. Check your text, Jake. Two things are certain. One, Kelly O'Coin's about to join us in studio, and two, I must work on the Rich Eisen Show Wi-Fi firewall. I don't know, man. Something's up. Look, I got two on Twitter.

I didn't seek it out. All right. We'll take a break. Kelly O'Coin next. Keep it classy.

It's called FX is Clipped, and it premieres tomorrow exclusively on Hulu. You play the longtime executive of the front office of the Los Angeles Clippers and formerly San Diego Clippers when you joined everything. Andy Roser is his name. This is you welcoming Doc Rivers, played by Laurence Fishburne, into the fold. The HR. That's a through line for all my characters, apparently, not a true line for the HR. Wait a minute.

Did Axe Capital have human resources? No, we had Spiros who was like, you know, compliance is similar. Do you have a second family on this show also? What's that?

A second family on this show? No, no, no. I will neither confirm nor deny. You have to read between the lines on this one. Axe Cap had resources, a lot of resources, not many humans.

You know what I mean? But FX is Clipped premieres again tomorrow exclusively on Hulu, and you can watch FX is Clipped on Hulu right here on Roku. Back on the Rich Eisen Show radio network, sitting at the Rich Eisen Show desk furnished by Grainger with supplies and solutions for every industry. Grainger has the right product for you.

Call or just stop by. We just showed our Roku channel audience a clip of Clipped FX is Clipped premieres again tomorrow exclusively on Hulu, and Kelly O'Coin is here on the program. Good to see you, Kelly.

It's great to see you too. Yeah. Well, you mentioned it before, but along with some very painful sports memories, I might add. Yeah.

And a nice shrug, 32 year anniversary of the shrug on your blazers from Jordan. I was not aware. I don't have it marked in my calendar, so I appreciate you pointing it out.

That was good. But yeah, as you mentioned, when I was here almost a year and a half ago, it was right in the middle of filming this. Yes. And it usually does take a lot of time for TV and film to actually find the light of day, but this was particularly long because of the strike. Right.

Now it's finally here, and I've been looking forward to this for some time. We've got Ed O'Neill on tomorrow's program. He plays Donald Sterling, and you play, I guess, would you say his right hand man, would you say? Yeah. He's the president of the corporations, president of the Clippers, and essentially functioning as S, Donald Sterling's Smithers. Pretty much.

I would say. Right? I mean, Andy Roser joined the team in 1984 with the San Diego Clippers. He was there with the organization as long as Ralph Lawler was, pretty much. Yeah, he was there for a really long time. He was very young when he started, which is something that comes into play. This is our version of what happens. It's my version and our version of Andy Roser. But at least in terms of what we have on the page and what we were going for, that to me fed into why he stuck with this guy for so long, even though it's pretty obvious that he was aware that some of these things were untoward.

You get him when they're young, and he was impressed by Sterling, as he says a number of times. Even though, and even to the extent that how sort of, I can't swear, right, if I remember that question? Well, let's try not to. Let's try not to, yeah. Yes.

Nice. The crappy things that he saw happening, it was almost like, that's so impressive that you got away with that. Some of the stuff was so bald-faced and just audacious that taking morality away, I think he saw this man as just deeply impressive. Well, I mean, and I can't wait to see this because you as a diehard Blazer fan, you definitely remember this.

Oh, yeah. This is just 10 years ago, essentially. This happened 10 years ago, and I just remember obviously having a sense of Donald Sterling and who he was and how he was known at the time and for so many years as the worst owner in the NBA. In sports.

In sports, you could even make that case as well. And I just remember all this happening, and I just remember how great and necessary Doc Rivers was at that point in time. And I imagine this is what we're going to see in this series. Yeah, you're going to see a lot of Doc and his struggle with the team and the brilliance of his coaching with how we put that team together as GM. And I don't know if he was officially GM, but at least he had some say in bringing some players on.

Sure. And it was a contender. It was a championship contender. If things had not gone south, easily could have won a championship that year. And I actually had an affinity for the, always have, always had, for the Clippers, because when I was young and my Blazers and my Bill Walton left, he went to the Clippers.

And so I just loved that guy, and that became sort of a secondary team that I followed. He didn't play much when he was there, but so I followed the Clippers and I was happy for them that they were finally maybe going to bring a championship home. And I despised the Lakers in a friendly way. So actually having the other team in LA be better was awesome for Portland fans. And Clipper fans are already lamenting, like we have a show that was called Winning Time. The Lakers fans have a show called Winning Time and their show is called Clipped. You get it, Clipped, the Clippers. By the way, those billboards are all over town here in Los Angeles.

People keep telling me that. And I finally saw one, which was exciting. And I had to do the obligatory thing, got out of the car. My wife took a picture of me, a really goofy picture, but that's okay.

But I mean, we were showing for our radio audience the billboard that we see. And there are two small basketballs held, what I believe in, those are probably V Stiviano's hand, her right hand right there. Those are those Clipper basketballs. I get it. So you know who also gets it?

My three children. Oh. Yeah. We're driving around town. Dad, Clipped's coming up. You're going to watch that? I'm like, yeah, we are. And that's when they're like, well, what is that about? And I say, Suze, take it away, you know, you take it away.

You cover the Lakers in this town. That's your bailiwick. You may have the floor. If I could just say, wait for one second. Yeah.

He had a t-shirt. What's right here? Something.

Okay. What do you got? What do you got here? It's holding it up.

It's a clipped basketball t-shirt. I decided not to go with the testicles one. I appreciate that here. Thank you, sir. I will take it.

And I will wear this with pride. Excellent. I love it. Yeah. I appreciate you. You brought me a billions one the last time you were here. That's right. It's like a tradition.

You come with gear. I feel like I have to clothe you. I appreciate it. I like it.

I'm a kid, so my paternal instinct kicks in elsewhere. I greatly appreciate it. Now, you've worked with some greats, Ed O'Neill, I'm assuming is one of them. I love that guy.

Ed O'Neill, I've always loved him, but I don't think I was, and I've always thought he was a fantastic actor. I don't think I was fully aware of how flippin' good he actually is. The character work he does with this is fantastic.

It's really fantastic. And the voice is spot on. I got COVID during the filming, and I was out for about a week and a half, and he left me a message in the voice of Sterling, and I didn't know where I was for like 10 seconds before I went five seconds. So he stayed in character? He stayed in character on the phone. He was like, Andy, I can't do it, but it's like, where are you? Where the F are you?

Get to work, and you're God-fucking fired. And I should have queued it up and played it for you, but it was great. Working with him was a dream. Working with Lawrence, those are the two I worked with the most. Working with Lawrence was fantastic, and he's been an acting idol of mine forever. And the cheesy thing I kept posting was, sometimes it's okay to meet your heroes, because they're just awesome. Right. They're great scene partners.

They play ball. They love it when you do something interesting, and they're just great offset, too. Well, the thing is, that really was jarring for me, hearing that Ed O'Neill was playing Donald Sterling, is when Ed O'Neill plays a character, you want to love him, right? Even when Al Bundy was despicable, you just found him. You know what I mean? Yeah, totally. So playing somebody who is patently unlovable is quite a heel turn. It's quite a heel turn, yeah. And I'll be curious talking to you about it afterwards, because what he does do, he doesn't play him as a mustache twirler, but he plays him as a real human being. Sometimes you can play so heavily into the villain part of it, into the heel, that it becomes a caricature.

But he's a fully formed human being, and he just happens to be, as a human, a terrible human. It's a remarkable performance. And you're back on FX, Pastor Tim's back on FX, brother. Yeah, coming home. Yeah, coming home. I'm a company man at heart, what can I say? You are.

I mean, you've been elsewhere as well in the meantime, but that's pretty cool. Kelly O'Coin here on The Rich Eisen Show. So playing Dollar Bill, because you just walked us through what it's like to play somebody who's not very likable as a human. Was Dollar Bill a human? Was he a human being? Was he a human being? He was a machine, man.

Come on. No, yeah, Dollar Bill was. It's funny, you find inspiration in odd places. With the clipped character, I sort of decided he was a cross between Smithers and Ned Flanders. He had to be upbeat all the time, you know, hidely-ho, yes, sir, I will eat crap, fine, can I have some more?

But with Bill, it was more, I just started, I think the first day, I realized my legs were planted really far apart, and my arms were always crossed, and my jaw was jutting. And I was like, oh, that's the character. That's it. Yeah.

And from that, all the attitudes sort of poured forth. But yeah, you find little ways of keying into a character, and sometimes it's surprising. When I told the showrunner after we wrapped Clipped that I was a cross between Smithers and Ned Flanders, she was like, that's awesome. I'm really glad you didn't tell me that beforehand, but that's great.

Why? Because I think it sounds flip, you know? It's to someone who, she didn't know, she wouldn't have necessarily known what I meant, and she was happy with the outcome. That's great.

But if I had named it, she, you know, she might have been like, oh, maybe expand, maybe something a little more sophisticated than two cartoon characters. What was your favorite dollar bill moment? I can't even.

You've got to have one or two. I've got, okay, smashing Spiros's Porsche that whole day. Did you really do that?

Oh, yeah. The stuntmen did it the first time, and then I did about 25 smashes. It was like... Was it, it was a real Porsche? It was a real Porsche, although as the props people said, it was like, yeah, it's an entry level Porsche. I was like, what?

What does it mean? An entry level Porsche? No, this was only a hundred thousand dollars or something.

I don't know. So they brought an entry level Porsche in, and it was your job to smash it. And my job was to hit a specific spot on the car every time, because then they could replace one section of it and still have a non-totaled car. Didn't happen.

Didn't happen. I was all over that thing. Your batting average was, you hit like 200?

Yeah. I'd say I hit the spot maybe twice, and I think I said, oh, I got this. And then the third time of 25, it was just like hit the door, which I wasn't supposed to do. You know, that kind of... That scene was amazing. Both Steve Konkin, who plays Spiros, and I were like hyperventilating, like 12 year old boys. It was like, we get to break stuff.

Whatever. The fake fight was with Axe, of course. And pretty much anything I did with Bonnie, like Sarah Stiles, I loved working with her. And she'd like out dollar bill, dollar bill periodically. And that was fun.

Well, I know you told the story last time you were here, the time we worked together, Kelly. Yes, that's right. From Fight Night. That's right. By the way, I just got like an $8 check from that, the other day, which was great. Yes, an $8 residual check from Fight Night. The wasted paper. Dude, but that was, again, I will always talk about this with you, because of the star studded scene with, you know, Deontay Wilder, Stipe Miocic was there, and then just you and Dan Soder, like legitimately hitting each other.

We're making asses of ourselves in a delightful way, hopefully. Yeah, Deontay Wilder was in my corner. It was incredible.

He just won. He was the champ. And it was really fun to get to know him.

He was like the sweetest guy in the world. Right. But yeah, it probably won't come as a surprise to anyone who's watching, who has seen the episode that neither Soder nor I can box. And we showed that. But he did break your rib, though. Yeah, he did.

We had a whole thing. The whole thing was choreographed, and the very first take of the very first shot, he hit, the adrenaline was a little too high. It was supposed to hit me in this little flak thing I had and pulled back, and he didn't.

He drove through, and it was high, and I heard a kachunk, as I think I said before. I was like, that's not good. Soder broke your rib.

Broke my rib. What the hell, man? He says it was an accident.

That's not true. No, you met him. You know that guy. He was channeling his inner Mafibro. Yeah, exactly. That's what was happening.

He was pissed. Do you have a good favorite dollar bill line that you can say on national television? That I can say? Yes. Where it was on the page, and you're like, I'm going to make a meal out of this thing. Yeah. I mean, I made some meals and was told to pull back a number of times. You really were? I was, yeah.

A couple times. It was just like, just say the line. I was like, oh, okay. They were like, you wrote a really good line.

You don't have to put some relish on it. Just say the line. I'm Kaiser Soze, Mother F'er, of course, was great. And I remember Koppelman telling me, he was like, before we did, a couple days before the table read, he was like, I think I wrote maybe my favorite line of the show so far for you. And I was like, what is it? And he's like, you'll see. And we went to the table read. And as soon as I said the line, he was at the far end and he kind of leaned out and I was like, eh?

I was like, that's pretty much going to be the best line I ever say on TV. Can confirm. Can confirm. Can confirm.

Yeah. I love that. You're a really high-hard Blazer fan. You sent me on your way in here on my phone. You texted me a photograph of you with the now late Bill Walton.

What's the story behind this one right here? Wow. Look at that. Look how happy I am. Why wouldn't you be? I'm grinning.

My face doesn't, my mouth doesn't go that wide, but somehow it did. I was doing a play at the La Jolla Playhouse, an upbeat comedy about America's involvement in Afghanistan, a lighthearted romp. And I was with a bunch of students, because they have an affiliation with UCSD.

And so there are a bunch of students, all pretty much Southern California based, Laker fans. They'd been giving me crap the whole time about being a partner with Trailblazer fan. It was a lot of back and forth banter. And they came running back in one time, the few times I was off stage, they came running back in and said, Bill Walton's in the audience.

And I was like, you know, come on. They're trying to mess with you. Trying to mess with me. Yeah, you can't.

You can't find it. And they kept at it. And I finally was like, oh, maybe it's true. And I checked my phone and my wife happened to be at that performance. She'd come in from New York and she was like, get out here now, all caps. And she was apparently like playing defense almost, like running interference. I was like, Mr. Walton, you don't understand.

My husband loves you so much. You have to just, he was just in the play. And so she slowed him down enough.

And I got out and you could see in that picture, my collar isn't even down. That's right. Yeah. Look at that.

So quick. He wouldn't have been more gracious. He did get a little confused, I think. He kept referring to me by my character name. And there was something alluded to, there was a difficulty in my character's life with my wife. Yeah.

It was part of the play. And he was like, really wanted to know about that. He's like, oh, how are you doing now? How are you and your wife feeling? Are you better?

I was like, but she's right here. We're good. We're good.

Okay. Well, that's great. The gummy must have kicked in. I was thinking, yeah. I was thinking Mission Gummy might have kicked in. But it was just, it was so sweet.

And he was walking better. It was after some of those issues. Right.

Yeah. I mean, it's not like your story. Well, where he cracked my windshield.

I didn't get a check. I know, right? By the way, if you look past Brockman, you could see the windshield behind him. That's great. Right there.

Yeah, man. It's back there. We've leaned it up against the Rose Bowl seats.

That's his beloved UCLA. We're just kind of leaving that there for a while. I don't know if we're going to take that down, but. That's a great spot for it though.

Dude, love it. It's unbelievable. Cause he, you know, he had this, that chair, this metal gym, just watching him walk down flower street with this chair like this and I'm right behind him. And I'm like, this is just the wildest scenario. Like life is just wild and how these things just smashed together and then smashed with my windshield.

Right. Did you, was it one of those things where it was the crack and then it just slowly starts to spider? Well, we, well, we heard it first. We heard it first. My first concern was how am I going to fit the chair in and we fit the chair and then immediately switched to, how am I going to fit Bill Walton in now? And then we heard the crack and it happened. He couldn't have been more, like I said, just, um, um, 100% like a pot, like overly apologetic to the point where it was making me uncomfortable, like, like dude, are you kidding me?

Who you, you are just the greatest and I'm happy to just chat with you and be in your presence and just be in your essence, you know, which is the greatest essence I've ever been. Yeah. Uh, yeah. So you couldn't, wait a minute.

And I understand that, you know, the audience is kind of blacked out by, by lights on the stage. You couldn't see Bill Walton from the stage? I know. This is surprising. Yeah. That seven footer that's sitting there on top of this chair. Oh, it's Bill Walton.

Okay. No, it was a scene where, um, a lot of these, the students, uh, were in the audience, like yelling at someone on stage. So they were like, like all of a sudden they were like, yeah, Oh my God, Bill Walton, we got to talk to Kelly. Um, I love that. I love that. Yeah. It was, uh, that was amazing. I, I, I never got a check from him though.

So you got there. I did, but I never cashed it. That's so cool. Never will.

Never will. That's so cool. Um, thanks for coming on here. Uh, congrats in advance of something that I know it's going to be excellent. I cannot wait to see it. I've seen most of the episodes and I'm really happy with, I'm really proud of it.

And I've never had more fun shooting something, which is interesting cause it's kind of dark at times, but it's a very funny piece as well. It's it's, I'm proud of it. Well, it's called FX is clipped and it premieres tomorrow exclusively on Hulu.

And you can watch FX is clipped on Hulu available on our Roku platform. You're the best brother. You have a spot here anytime you want. Thanks brother. Appreciate it.

That's slash Eizen. What was the big break for you? Was it married with children, essentially? Well, I went to New York from Youngstown and I was doing a lot of theater and I did Broadway, Off-Broadway, regional theaters and so forth, and I was doing a play at Hartford Stage called Mice and Men, which is not a comedy, by the way, and I was playing Lenny. And then a casting director from L.A. was visiting his aunt and went to the show. And then, like the play, like me, and then a year later they're casting married with children and they can't get the Bundy guy.

And this guy's name was Hirschfeld and he said, you know, guys, you're going to think I'm nuts, but I saw an actor a year ago in a drama that I think he could do this. And they almost fired him. And I happened to be out there at the time for a failed pilot. And they called me and I was playing handball at the Hollywood Y. And I showed up with my glove with the bag, you know, my bag with the gloves hanging all of it. And it was Levitt and Moyer.

What the hell is that? And so we started talking in the office and then they had me audition. They said, would you mind reading?

And I said, no, that's what I do all the time. And I saw the guy as as my uncle, one of my uncles, Al Bundy or so. Yeah. He was like and the guy was a judge, but he reminded me of this guy. And what I mean is, I guess apparently most of the guys that read for it were doing it like Jackie Gleason and the Honeymooners, you know, yelling and mad. Well, my uncle was like resigned. You know, life was going to be bad. Resigned.

I love it. So, you know, we'd be like, you get home from work and he'd come in the house and my aunt, his wife, would say, Joe, I ran over the dog in the driveway today's dead. And Joe would say, what's for dinner? It was sort of like that, right? That's how I read it. And they had not heard that tact, you know, that interpretation. No, they had not heard that. And they went, well, that's kind of funny.

That's eight years ago. Ed O'Neill's latest appearance on this show is on Tuesday. Back here on the Rich Eisen Show Ready Set Griddle, this grilling season, people get the Weber Slate Rust Resistant Griddle with a carbon steel cooktop that's safe for metal tools.

You can carry all the food condiments and utensils you need. Get fired up for your new Weber Slate Rust Resistant Griddle. All right. I'd like to have one of those. Those look pretty nice.

Oh, good thing you might know somebody. Just saying, these things are dope. Okay.

I like a rust resistant. We decided last week in honor of Bill Walton's positivity in Shine the Light, Be the Light. We did Shine the Light, Be the Light.

He inspired us on the air. I'm like, you know what I'm going to do? I'm going to come up with the best case scenarios for every division, one by one in the National Football League. We're going to do it for eight straight days like Hanukkah. You just added that part. I did. Yeah. Yeah. Eight straight days.

Okay. And we started with the NFC West. Today, we're going to finish up the NFC and the rest of the week, we're going to do the AFC and we even have a drop, the NFC East best case scenarios for the 2024 season. Look at it, please.

Best case scenario for each NFL team. That's crazy. That is tremendous.

Could have had it from the beginning if I decided to just come up with the idea in a meeting, not on the air. Here we go. Here we go. Starting with the New York football giants, the best case scenario for them in the NFC East, Daniel Jones starts week one and he is your comeback player of the year.

Brian Burns shows everybody in the New York metropolitan area, which means people are now paying attention. What everybody in Carolina knows, he's got defensive player of the year ability. He wins it. Malik Nabors, they draft him because Daniel Jones is comeback player of the year. Who needs Saquon?

Nabors is offensive rookie of the year. And the Giants make the playoffs as a wild card team. I'm not going to tell you what they're doing in the playoffs. That's your guess is as good as mine.

I have no earthly idea. Daniel Jones in one playoff showed up like Colin Kaepernick in Minnesota and then was just absolutely terrible in the following week in Philadelphia. Wild card berth for the New York Giants. That's their best case scenario.

And that's even that's a pie in the sky, is it not? Washington commanders, their best case scenario. Jayden Daniels is offensive rookie of the year. He shows up and he shows out and he shows that everybody who said that he had the best ability of anybody coming out of the draft of the quarterback position to perform and succeed in the NFL right now out of the box at college. They were right.

And he's showing the way. Dan Quinn is coach of the year. That guy shows up and he brings his positivity and he shows up and the Washington commanders perform well. And I'll even say this, like I think the Texans are a perfect template. Number two overall pick in the draft wins offensive rookie of the year and has even some MVP conversation in the coach that's new to the team, you know, has coach of the year conversation and they make the divisional playoffs round. I think the Texans are a perfect best case scenario for this year's Washington commanders. And I'll even throw another one in, they changed the damn team name.

That's a bet. That's, that's a best case scenario for this franchise. Now then the Philadelphia Eagles, what's their best case scenario. There's a lot of best case scenarios you're hitting the, you're hitting that penthouse button when you get on, on the elevator, Jalen Hurts wins the MVP, Nick Sirianni wins coach of the year. Saquon Barkley wins offensive player of the year. They push every damn button properly and despite Jason Kelce being gone and Fletcher Cox being gone and a team that really predicates its success on line play, somehow, someway gets everything else cooking with gas.

Dom doesn't get ejected. He's on the sideline, all 17, okay, and, and the Eagles win the Superbowl and Saquon goes back to Pennsylvania and he wins it for the Philadelphia Eagles. That's the best case scenario for the Philadelphia Eagles. That didn't really, I don't think I missed anything right there.

Even two out of three with the Hurts, Sirianni, Saquon hits and they win the Superbowl, boom. That's it, right? Yeah.

They pushed every button. They made, they made the right moves by not getting rid of Sirianni. No doubt. By getting new coordinators in. Extending the wide receivers. Right. Exactly. They pushed it all over the defense. That's it.

Yeah. The Dallas Cowboys. Here we go, TJ.

Best case scenario for the Dallas Cowboys. Here we go. Let's go. Here.

We. Go. Dak Prescott. MVP. Wins MVP. Yes.

C.D. Lamb is Offensive Player of the Year. Oh, baby. Zeke runs for a thousand yards. He's back. He's eaten. He's eaten.

God, if you listen. A thousand yards, Zeke, Zeke fills all the question marks about the running game. He gets the fountain of youth and he runs for a thousand yards. Micah Parsons wins Defensive Player of the Year. And Jerry Jones is rewarded with his all-in sensibility by he's the executive of the year. Wow. And the Dallas Cowboys, with all of these successful earmarks, make the NFC Championship game.

It's marvelous. They finally get rid of the jinx. They go as far as the NFC Championship.

And they lose to the 49ers. No, get back, TJ. It's OK. It's OK. No. He's laughing too hard.

It's all right, TJ. Everything works for the Dallas Cowboys. And they actually, they actually win the Super Bowl. They actually win the whole shooting match. They reach the NFC Championship.

I didn't. Let me finish my sentence. They reach the NFC Championship game. And they win now.

They go to the Super Bowl and win now. Oh, I thought, OK. I thought you said you was OK. Yeah, you thought I was doing something else. Gotcha. Well, that would be a best-case scenario. That's it. And everything else hits.

Everything hits. Here we go. Yo. So what's the scenario? Oh, yeah.

15 and 2. Oh, and then everybody puts their bag on the table. And Jerry's like, there is, I don't know what. There's no pie. He's going pie shopping. That's OK. We don't need pie for last year.

That's right. You guys, I don't know if you guys want that to happen. And those are my best-case scenarios for every team in the NFC East. EJ, man, the Cowboys and the Super Bowl, we are going to have a fun week in New Orleans. Oh, could you imagine?

In the Gulf South. I'm going to need prayer, if that's the case. I mean, I always need prayer. We're going to have a fun week on Bourbon Street. If that happens. Oh, man.

You mean when it happens? So tomorrow, I'll do the AFC East and then work my way west. All right. Hey.

How was a big slick real quick? Did Sarah come back? One Piece? Yeah. Sarah's back.

One Piece. Incredible. They raised nearly $4 million.

I saw that. $25 million for the life of the big slick. $25 million.

I think it was the 15th year of big slick. For Children's Mercy Children's Hospital. Yeah. Rousing success. They were auctioning off. Kelsey was there, and Mahomes was there, and all the usual Casey celebs.

Congrats to them. Yeah. What a great time. Yeah. And I saw the Swerski brothers made an appearance because Robert Smigel was there and George Wendt is Sudeikis' uncle, and then Sudeikis played a Bulls fan.

Kind of the Farley character. Yeah. And he told... He asked... And Travis Kelsey was a guest, and he asked Travis Kelsey when you're going to make an honest woman out of Taylor Swift, when you're going to marry her so she can stop working and live at home like your kicker would agree should happen.

Really funny. Now, the whole 12-minute skit that they did is online. Big slick posted it.

I saw Mahomes was tremendous. Everybody should check it out, and of course, donate to Children's Mercy Children's Hospital, as great a cause as there is in the Kansas City area, for sure.
