Let's keep working and other on and that's happened backpack that Sharon that your when everybody. And then you know one of the Cuban show hear him with with that with Rome and ashes and show it right and you know it's on it's over 21 years. But when I went to chromosome counseling different. Bob they have. You tell me how it happens right to counsel me and said you have guys won a world where the term down. That's who I was and into the doctor milk at 18100 discovered it was okay. My son does have down yes it's. Had a I love the dot com that we get stuck with men. But what is it that's when that story so we continue to move forward it is because kids and adults that have to have an extra chromosome. They're happy sure they are broadcast lovers so that's why we caught up said. And it's it's cause you to be able to get involved to do things help make schools better I mean he really was a blessing for you wasn't no question so you don't want it. It's still on the Q with the whole online news. Future human being. Q you. To us. He sees it helps me through it here. It needs to counsel Jennifer. Give us was of him and move forward. I I was watching a video review it was an interview. They keep it I don't know years ago abuse of your own teammates talking about it and he didn't turn a double play and Ozzie Smith he's he immediately called jemaah after he turned that double play with Ozzie Smith I don't know was the first -- that you did with Ozzie Smith or whatever like that. Was common for you to do with the relationship with your mother was at a real strong what were you called her every night was that something special hour yeah how did all that where would junior. I'm almost going hero. He was the disciplinarian. Q is. He. Educated yourself. While she was raising me and my two Brothers but you know on the table. She became registered owners that it needs 32. Backs. Warrior won't agree. I have a lot of respect for her. She. Taught me shaking hands with people are looking in the you know it's a yes or looser you know all about respect. And those things well. This was meant to and so. When I came home in the draft day. Seven you'll hear it from multiple school impressive California did draft right walked in the door to school 3 o'clock. Eight immediately call. And the Damn Yankees death. I'm from Texas and my parents from the south you're yankees. Which talent I told what is it. That one. Those excellent school age are all right at all or sign and they were who stood by and yes. It's a pass from some guiding Joseph Montana that would fun right and also right wing parties for that right so she didn't she could see the Yankees threat. So then the Yankees came to town couple weeks later Al Rosen vice president former repeat we third base. To review. And they sit down and who knew we want your kid my mom sent a son who beat your pals own. That would be skewed if you need to keep on thirty minutes later. With a walk in my front door was locked and knocked on my own front door open the door. And almost congratulations and hurt in that area he worked whose that Notre Dame a scholarship if she milked 150 grand. And it was a surprise bonus Steinberg has been done so it's like you know it's always have to respect my mom so. Time went on. Bill we were looking at. Tripoli but it was the guys I was supposed to his job with yankees catcher too when I turned it no we will have Michael when most of public editor to block. It's within the next time I got through and though they were some pretty famous like that was written in junior. Specter to account Michael home at this moment what and then of course I got to the cardinals. Turn to and we love it. Mean I basically was that he was man we got to put it means it's. Because I was in all. That was probably where it you know during these steps in the majors. Do you belong. Yes particularly you know but once I got over that all good but yeah my mom my hero. Kind of had that same experiences to bring it back when you got here to Kansas City try to figure out if you belong you know like he had theoretically if it almost seems like in each instance of your career you got to try to prove to figure out whether or not belong and I think that's not just for you I think that's for everybody how how does somebody. Understand that they do. Along the Kendall. Will. You know a lot of that has to come with confidence. One that comes from experience. And we failure dealing with. Baseball players are good at that for the police major league baseball players are good. You know on the successful if that's what and you know that when when opportunities present itself. Then. Step in your prepared you grew more confidence in you carriers so. Like you belong. And you move forward. Take the good the bad. Criticism comes which part of the job when your job like mine sure you it's. Appreciate that bode well to be better. No work on. It's the game reviews of businesses you know your packets at you talk too much. Anecdote. It's been in trouble. A work on it but he thinks. It just because you don't like me doesn't mean like you. So that to deal with stand up in the midst of your failures struggles just. Realized that that's gonna happen to you. And I think a lot of us do green shirt and yelled out. You know again I got back and way way SaaS to talkback. So I was okay when are we. Told you reason. Japanese coach to Leo. But he say top thirty minutes Marquardt who in the cup people with them thirty minutes these you know Japanese. And in my interpreter after about twenty minutes go by and you know look real happy. A well let's let's let's say and sit near the reason we're losing. I would. Thirty minutes that really. Well okay it's township that I'm gonna be that guy. He hired comes with Thomas they would be a murder. The image that here is a different. If the course it was totally different that it was different nativist and everything but it was too movie different. You know they had is different different ways to play it it is if they pitched backwards don't want to parties lost the pitches I hit. I hit second in the order only missed one side bets being the eight point in front of the pitcher the rest of the year. Your American player in the top four spots so long right. But he yeah he's America's. Vigilant I know he'll be the guy. Guy called. Out to. Thank you very much as I balances things of that nature man who's a million bucks man. I'll only for me Nokia has a lot of card contract you before we get 300 Griffin right human conflict. It. And get my. It will play and became the guy that he expected 300 we want answers that you. Your critics to overcome activity questions. And you know. It won't work collectively. You'll never about it. And forward. Did you learn any Japanese and Euro there is an yeah they're dead it was race. That's my brother Bob won two that was my plan that was his plan my way.

Remember remember us telling you about this that hate gender juror in this business heroes you can feel that there's that many. When there's that many spiritual. Spears going on and you can feel that and you can feel the prayers to the other room. I would wake up in the morning you know having him as a part. Of church. What's wrong people were lifted me up my got stacks of mail from people stay with that because it was out there. Angels broadcaster. Almost to bring gamers so we all over the country peoples of different. Sort of laughs. They've never had any practice that's unbelievable. That's great what was your impression of Kansas City before you came here. I do agree barbecue. I knew that that we could pop up some wins by coming here today as it was during the time when they went chair so law. I love their downtown and the via. Must. Not expect a new special place. And then and then just thought it was a real nice country town based. About it teller. What's love and passion and sure we couldn't see him. Whenever there rush yet. Experience. We can make this. Eight in the news and it was. It it's interesting that to listen do you do yeah it's always told business when when he got the job here is nice what you would cut at night it was like the last game on its least puts you guys on all the time when you're doing the Angel case about here you are together right doing. Like nobody's ever done that I don't think ever baseball do one team together that has moved to another team together like that to you guys. I don't know that it has either and and you guys are like Brothers you and Steve busy. And any of the gays who rioted rise tally your dad at times which I think is hysterical and I was watching some stuff the other day would you would arrive in the moon man the idea that they've they've beat hobby incident Tampa like all this stuff or Ryan just. How as a way of just. Bringing you back in and make him like everything just perfect again it's it's insane. I mean how great times is he savior right he's worried I. Some really. Yeah its a great job now is I will Campbell from my side. It's. Likes it he but you know his wife Stacy she's beautiful woman yeah yeah. She always encourage him. You know with every every teams straight guy and a quality guy is your belt but he. It is right that's that took so stay out of his territory tries to industry with symptoms couple moon right now. Right it was real purpose those pictures of both extremely professional very well prepared. And but Ryan Bryant's hoop on. Whenever I step out of bounds which is maybe report tonight. A kind of Koreans know look at Ryan has that look on his face whenever whenever I got to come. He's got to look he's got to look he he's he's that kind of go you know and a gold you know. Number one don't go over zealous and you are as it is in Malibu hammer right if they're written it. When it's okay because when I deserve it lacked. Don't leave some of the stuff. It is like radio but you guys when you work you have a 62 delay split sure yet so we have to limit itself that goes you really want them on here. You know potency I don't want to honor. Sony. Rep Ruth. It's. Always do brought that but it. I've never allowed myself you have to write about it on that in not beat myself up over. But what I. I accidentally called the mood of planet not really that was my body just came out. I stepped out of bounds and my wife she was waiting for me when I got on her way to the door is you know if you have kids all kinds of kids out there you. Please some dummy you don't get it here. It. You're right but as it. Is is is that the one you look at like the most of the one years ago man I wish I could have that will backer or whether that was. That came out it was amusing than they would hit me in the accentuated right you know without. You know there's always there's been several simple things over the years you know you when you when you broadcast for twenty years. Laws that goes won't name it's alive it's it's like a more difficult to make sure it is down. You have to articulate. I have more accessible rain gotten I'm I'm look at the monitor trade talk about what I've seen. To the people. And I have to illustrate over here don't want Rollins tees. And then I watched the field to see what's going to put in it depends on replay oh what to look for. All of that it was the guy talked to him that's right so I. Do you. It is all that stuff. Bring it where people could tolerate. God has at all is that when I I know I say they don't Larry like man I can't believe I just said bad about it it's been run. I think you probably the most the most embarrassing thing was. Was when when our guy Apollo started his career with four triples yes. Don't think it's ever happened before right to go record. If so then we started on most of blown that we his address them home run and I had. I after the call this fits in with me this gives the call and he's running third. They asked me to the guys I usually that lets television. I rivers you know socks hats with my hands you know the whole team of movies with Jack yet and I called Momo was. I didn't know of a hole all right it is the whole. Little you know. It's a lot this year you get the the hunt right. Although no so let it go ahead of the play yeah goes. If my school. You gotta gotta fix that I needed big match. I got. Threw him to go back as an and Apollo Paul rural. It is worst incidents or me who doesn't know what it meant to say right people knew that in no way they knew I didn't mean caller about. Now of course stop it's really easy out pharma baseball though where you can get away with some stuff like that and now look at it every day you're in our lives there every night 7 o'clock comes you turn on the big game in. The guys are part of your lives I mean do you realize how big a part of lives you truly are no. I want no I don't answer that. You know because because it's impossible preside Cuba but that being here in this town were. You know we've had a press ratings the last two years penalties debt are right there at the top. So as the majority that is we have most people but it's that the majority of people that we have. 90% admiral Watson rolls. So our own grocery store but my. More here. You know that are that you engage people like let's. Q but I think you look at. It at my kids they'll watch it. Overwhelmed. It's the product. He watches the product. It's exciting. Come back what's so. Watching you Brian and it is much of fuel and money although I didn't create good productive. We were good team sir all of us. We help enhance the product that's what we wanna do. It is exciting product at the top shelf. Even this season coveted eighteen popped on. Here baseball or else Houston is gonna be reused in the last few years ago which last couple years. So. We couldn't QB you'd said. I think so too an exit to dizzy on your partner for many years called you a man of servicing does for others. What's the best moment you had him doing something for someone else. Yet those young men Dave Ryan Grant shop he's still alive. He had it highly unusual to were wrapped around his mind just a couple of years ago. In the I admitted that. Got a call from the what I airborne found it to be you or call one was pressed him it twenty years old is the problem. That you would you be he loves you. So why are wiped out there but it it did you lose it in the Andersen's Houston. Getting treatment when the team got used. We doctors that he you have your moment come to a game rosary like what was. We gave. For the game and introduced to. Do you care. Through through Gomes told a group certificate well let's go to treatment here enough. It is nice to meet you drew goes back in the in the clubhouse he if he gets all the guys decided that now I will see wheat that's awesome right. Nebraska meantime those each player was assigned about eight but Red Bryant out there Richardson are two. So he brings back. Hauled me Q. But he signed but it's so cool so here comes all the players when they're coming out for batting practice and they came out of the out of the tunnel. They walked right up to it. Ryan we're pulling for you that's to me every single player before they do these things. What's unbelievable the power that. And these two were winning revision. Eventually. Yes the European way by its gone now and he's unfortunately battling leukemia. But he's he's gonna get well because. He believed the royals deal.
