Today old locker clean out day for the sabres who season ended Saturday in Boston -- mentioned the blown lead in the third period in Philadelphia that led to their being eliminated there was another on Saturday. In Boston and they lost -- Chicago of course and the season and -- and goal he was very good go figure. You know felt I was thinking about an evil person in early and that -- the game seven Carolina. -- one goal lead in the third against severely compromised. Enough. Ehrlich and unable to overcome all universities but these things to -- recur. They have the probability -- become across the table they have probably you know this commodity probably one. That team lots of times over but you don't remember -- it's like the guy who says always in the longest line at the supermarket. You're really not you just only notice it when you're in the longest. Game seven that classic. A man in game seven the play -- road game further ahead by one goal right it's gonna come right at the end of the season in the ultimate moment it tends to stick. That's true our our members area but as a -- the home run more than. To call call your life. He beat acuity here I'll admit that too. That's right. Coker -- on -- stick with the running back for the Pittsburgh. Steelers and 03 base and for the -- when they're related animal colon. Some well -- the nice folks outlet liquor would like to offer you a penny for your thoughts three thoughts on sports. Yet. Remember I've got three ever forgot one -- -- start though with what it's really not sports Mike Wallace all he did. Interviews and in fact probably the worst of -- that was with Clemens but. You know I went to college at Missouri and during Watergate that journalism school. And with that we all want to be great journalist not a sports writers and people are always asking about Howard Cosell and I always. Look up to. You know certain writers but also the sixty minutes crew which was coming. A fully of age in the seventies and they they were heroes with two and Mike -- a guy whose career goes back the start of radio. Just these aren't you re here my whole adult life. And as a hero and it's just you'll just be missed I mean when I'm watching sports science Sunday. With -- it's always like while sixty minutes has delayed right we're not gonna miss sixty minutes that's the big thing at the end of the masters necessarily so. As Mike loss like I feel bad for you lament big Taylor and your family. I've been really down -- major college sports this year for a lot of reasons that -- to me they were kind of the good story of the year. Griffin and the football team of basketball teams combining to win -- games when the women's title now they're in big trouble because of illegal. Phone calls and texts which to me it's like while. -- with school couldn't you laughter but this is what took Indiana down hard a few years ago and are still recovering. So I think bill is in trouble and after what happened with the death of the players the murder of players is very unfortunate. Even a good store's entire sports I've ruined. Quickly have got to admit as yes my wife went there were Baylor fans but. Some of it didn't make sense knew they had that before this thing even broke I've I've thought that for a long time since when does Baylor have better athletes than taxes. It's a good school academically it's in Waco it isn't Texas so how are they doing it and you know maybe it's legit maybe Texas cheats to. You I don't know but you know I think Texas and ever -- attacks to a high school kid area I go right you coach who who else would. I have one more penny come about baseball and baseball. We know about yankees and Red Sox news about the people who that is really well the problem in this right now both teams Irwin three. It's not for old six last year and had the best record in baseball totally collapsed but I I think the Red Sox. -- real trouble I did pick this year the pitching is fragile -- -- -- Don't get me started on closers. It's also. Fragile quality about the Yankees. And I don't know if they're gonna make it needed I think a lot of it depends on how good the jays are. In the second team in the west I think I think the rays and angels on both -- so you'd the next wild card. You can get me to the best three teams the American League or Detroit texts now -- give me there. Adding Toronto and I'm there I'm optimistic about Toronto but they're getting more credit than they've -- yet. And Tampa has a great staff and if more is as good as he looked last year they're gonna be tough to hit. But I'm not ruling out and literally help Boston there's still a lot of good players. They may fight for playoff spot would that be something -- nails he has fighting for that while parents I think -- very good. I think we agree it is no surprise team coming out of the central I think probably that's right. About this. I say Boston. Sneaks in to get the second wildcard and you and I spend. Some time arguing about whether people are using the word irony. Correctly. Given what happened last year often referred to me as an expert irony which I really am not I don't think there that is ironic -- and then there's an irony there are two of Jerry's thoughts a penny for your thoughts brought to buy New York's only -- liquor online outlet Flickr dot com what's your outlet. Here is Doug on WG RI dog. -- -- -- -- In that scenario earlier this period broke a great point about how -- -- -- And which he can do -- all the young talent we have and yet also sent about these. The role players have been fictional these guys -- cool to. -- I -- leak you know we can't go to these guys predicting winning goal so my question that you would think that these 21 round. Trade those two. Trade one of those guys and -- someone and get an elite player like and that something like at a final here -- I would love. That. Not being unfair to van -- -- -- your point 40. Yeah the -- scoring a goal was trade him and salary at this point would you consider. Everything on the table that I do too. I would considerate I'm open to I want. The parrot I think the the competitive. Level of the sabres pails in comparison to that of other teams. There there there problems or their inferiority to the top teams goes beyond talent I think. And I think that is. There's itself out over time. And then it should take some responsibility for that I think he cares very much. But the great ones can channel it the right way and he's just so hard on himself I know you'd think that it just an analyst at things that people say that they can't prove. I think it's obvious the way he reacts after missed scoring chances the way he talks he -- Lindy Ruff could call him the worst words there are and I think banning I could -- agreeing with that. Just. Man I think John. I'm sure he cares. But I'm open to changing their something's there to I am now. Open that many that the fact that I don't like people saying it's so much as depositing a virtue of the way you react sometimes I think it becomes a little defeatist attitude -- doesn't handle. That sort of defeat very well. People talk about rising above adversity of a guy like -- to shoulder or when he shoots one wide again. Is that is -- -- -- the thing that may be. He's not handling overall adversity well that. I help a team and also the court appoint a little older -- album we see these other teams maybe they like Colorado I don't know. Where they are right now and I've felt that their team a young vitality of its younger. Rising players and when you get with the same as it's and you see the likes hopefully you know and and it's that that the talent is turning over Italy and fielding the guys around thirty now and it's like. Are they near the end of their pride especially if invent X is designed to break down physically it's another thing to consider. Thank you Jerry -- thanks for having.
