Speaker 1 (00:00):
Kutbooms.

Speaker 2 (00:02):
If you thought four hours a day, twelve hundred minutes
a week was enough, think again. He's the last remnants
of the old Republic, a soul fashion of fairness. He
treats crackheads in the ghetto cutter the same as the
rich pill poppers in the penthouse.

Speaker 1 (00:18):
Wow.

Speaker 2 (00:18):
The Clearinghouse of hot takes break free for something special.
The Fifth Hour with Ben Maller starts right now.

Speaker 1 (00:28):
In the air eyway. The Fifth Hour with Me, Big
Ben and Danny g Radio hanging out with you on
a lazy Sunday holiday weekend, Indianapolis five hundred. Hello, can
you say Indy five hundred? I knew you could as

(00:50):
we hang out with you on this Sunday And mail
Bag Dan, it's mail Bagdadny. I know you're excited about
you before the mailbag every week?

Speaker 3 (00:58):
Do you not? I do us? An ask Ben? Which
are nothing alike? By the way, No, no, they're totally different. Yeah.

Speaker 1 (01:04):
This is not a ripoff. This is not a cheap,
inferior copycat of a Gucci bag. No, no, this is
the real deal. Raw. Can we celebrate National paper airplane Day? Today?
Today is national? Why would today? What are you talking
about what happened to your inner child. Let your inner

(01:26):
child out, Let your inner child fly.

Speaker 3 (01:28):
Nobody, no, no one ever let us fly those planes.
Parents took them away. Grandparents took them away, teachers took
them away.

Speaker 1 (01:35):
Oh, there's no question.

Speaker 3 (01:37):
Not good memories, I know.

Speaker 1 (01:38):
But did you know that the history of the paper
airplane goes back to the seventeen hundreds? Did you know
that in France brothers made a hot air balloon using
paper in the seventeen hundreds, and then it's expanded over.

Speaker 3 (01:54):
Over the years.

Speaker 1 (01:55):
Now I have a great paper plane story. You probably
think there's no way you could have a great paper
plane story. It's impossible to have a great paper plane story. Now,
this goes back to Chavez Ravine Dodger Stadium in the
nineteen nineties, covering the Dodgers on a regular basis, and
it was just about it was a day game. I

(02:17):
don't know whether it was a Sunday or a Thursday.
I don't remember the day of the week, but it
was a day game. And I'm sitting in the press
box at Dodger Stadium, and out of the corner of
my eye from the upper deck at Dodger Stadium, I
see this paper airplane, all right, and it's coming down
from the like the right field area, and it's coming

(02:40):
down and I track it and this effing thing from
the upper deck. The wind was blowing. I guess in
that there.

Speaker 3 (02:50):
I've seen video of this.

Speaker 1 (02:52):
Yeah, it got down to Home Place. Yeah, yeah, I
was at that game. I was at that game. It
was the most amazing thing I have. I don't want
to say I've ever seen, but in terms of paper airplanes,
that will never be never be topped, it will never be. No,

(03:14):
but like one of the odds from the freaking top
of Dodger Stadium. Yeah, you would throw a paper airplane
and the freaking thing would go right the home plane.

Speaker 3 (03:24):
I totally remember either seeing this or hearing about this.

Speaker 1 (03:28):
Yeah, I saw it, and I am very lucky one
of the that And when Fernando Tatis, not junior, his
old man, hit two Grand slams in the same inning.
I was at that game also, So the.

Speaker 3 (03:40):
Game and the Dodger gaber, the paper airplane would.

Speaker 1 (03:50):
But that The only reason I brought up that today
is National Paper Airplane Day, is to tell that story.
Otherwise I have no reason to bring that up. There's no, now,
I like you, Danny. When we were in school, we
fetched around with paper and made paper airplanes and we
were not allowed to.

Speaker 3 (04:04):
I hated when I would make a masterpiece and the
teacher would take it away.

Speaker 1 (04:08):
Yeah, and then would make it even worse by taking
it and you know, grabbing it in the fist of
their hand and like squishing the paper to the other
right into a paper ball. I was always like next
level pouring salt on the wound. But my problem when
I made the paper airplanes was I made like these
giant air cargo ships. I didn't make the sleek, you know,

(04:31):
and they're gonna be like thin, lean and mean. Mine
were always like fat, like Jumbo. They were to carry boxes,
not like.

Speaker 3 (04:39):
The plane that carried the Columbia.

Speaker 1 (04:42):
Yeah, like Mike, exactly, Like my construction of paper airplanes
left a lot to be desired, a lot to be
desired there. I was not very artistic when I was
making the paper airplane.

Speaker 3 (04:52):
So were you able to make a paper football?

Speaker 2 (04:55):
Then?

Speaker 3 (04:55):
Remember how we used to flick that on a tip?

Speaker 1 (04:57):
Oh yeah, yeah, I could do that. Yeah. We used
to play that with your flick it with your finger
and your you're going together yeah, that was always And
if it was off the other side of the table, Oh,
you got a free kick. Yeah, you had to make
you to make the goal post right with your almost
together make the goal post there. The kids kids don't
do that today, right, there's no way, no, why would
they do that.

Speaker 3 (05:15):
It's a lost art. Yeah. And it really felt like
a great field goal when you would flick it, kick
it through and then it would nail the person in
the face.

Speaker 1 (05:24):
Perfect, absolutely perfect. Yeah, there's no question. All right, let's
get to the mail bag. Mail bag, the stuff of nightmares.
The mail bag. OHIOO, it's bag, all right, thank you, Ohio.

(05:53):
Aw first one comes from Frank in Arizona. I believe
he's in so that just there, although I don't he
didn't say he's from Phoenix. But there's only a couple
of cities where people live in Arizona, in the Phoenix
area or the Tucson area.

Speaker 3 (06:08):
Right.

Speaker 1 (06:08):
I guess there's flag Staff.

Speaker 3 (06:10):
I've always wanted to visit Tucson. I wonder what it
looks like there.

Speaker 1 (06:13):
You're not missing anything, but kid, because I Hearson anyway,
Frank says, hey, Ben and Danny, Ben, I heard you
fill in in LA this week. Any chance you he
was the one, Any chance you will end up doing
a regular local, local show again, Well, it's not on

(06:36):
my agenda, Frank, but I'm not opposed to if it's
in a place like I like LA. Obviously I could
do a show in LA locally Boston. There's a few
cities I would work in that have a passion or
I have a passion for the sports in those cities.
But I think we're very lucky. Danny like doing the
national stuff. We can talk about whatever the hot story is.
It's a little more difficult when you do local stuff,

(07:00):
especially if the teams are not bad. If they're bad,
that's good local radio. But if they're mediocre, that's bad
local radio. You don't want mediocre.

Speaker 3 (07:08):
You don't kiss up enough to the l A teams
the way Davids say as a yes, catching as Stray,
you know he's chummy chummy with the players, and I
don't see you doing that. You know, you're very much
Jonas Knox. You go the other direction.

Speaker 1 (07:29):
I got a thing about dead bodies.

Speaker 3 (07:32):
When he's on LA radio, I hear I'm talking smack
about most LA teams. You do the same thing, and
so I think, especially like the Lakers station, they would
all chew you up and spit you out.

Speaker 1 (07:42):
Yeah, I'm not all the way off the orifice of
the local team that that is true. And in La
the except for the.

Speaker 3 (07:49):
Clippers, they would love to have you on the Clippers station.
Rip the Clippers a little bit, a little bit, but.

Speaker 1 (07:56):
It's like a lot of the l A local guys,
they are total homers.

Speaker 3 (08:02):
It's a some of that's kind of a normal thing though, Right.
You go from big city to big city across our country,
and there's going to be homers for that city's team
on the radio.

Speaker 1 (08:13):
But like certain cities, like in Boston, they don't really
do that as much. They attack, they attack everyone. In
New York they are homeeristic. In New York Philly they
attack everyone. They just go for the jugular.

Speaker 3 (08:27):
I mean, some of that is fun, but I don't
want to hear back to back to back shows where
all they're doing is ripping the team that you're hopeful for. Yeah.

Speaker 1 (08:36):
Well, I don't think we have to worry about that,
Frank anytime soon. But of course, if something were to
happen and I needed to get a job somewhere, I
would be willing to change my position. As you know,
Danny right, suddenly you have to you have to do
what you have to do.

Speaker 3 (08:52):
Contracts rule rub a couple of shekels together.

Speaker 1 (08:55):
Wild Man from Morgantown, West Virginia, Wright City says, hey, bandon,
dandy g I be watching people debate on social media,
and if you call those sugary fizzy drinks like coke
and pepsi, pop or soda, I don't think that stuff pop.

Speaker 3 (09:12):
What is this the nineteen fifties.

Speaker 1 (09:14):
No, there are parts of the country. It's regional. It's
regional like pop or soda, coca pepsi in like Atlanta.
I believe it's Atlanta. Everything's coke.

Speaker 3 (09:24):
But we're not drinking coke out of glass bottles because
I'm guessing that's where that came from, right, because the
lids would pop off.

Speaker 1 (09:33):
Well, yeah, I don't know exactly where I mean. I
Coca Cola, I can look it up, but Coca Cola
was from Georgia. So everything that is a carbonated drink
they say Coca cola.

Speaker 3 (09:44):
Where soda pop came from?

Speaker 1 (09:47):
Yeah, I don't I could dig into it, but he
says wild Man in West Virginia says, I don't drink
that stuff very often, but when I do, I call
it soda. I called my grandfather pop. What do you
guys say, Yeah, I'm I'm soda, I'm Team Soda. Yeah
I don't, I don't. I don't do the pop thing.

Speaker 3 (10:07):
Uh yeah, I was right to open a bottle. Back
in the day, the consumer would knock the top, releasing
the pressure with a sudden pop, which gave soda pop
its name.

Speaker 1 (10:21):
But how come in some regions it's still called pop
and not soda.

Speaker 3 (10:24):
That's a great question.

Speaker 1 (10:26):
It's it's like the sandwich is a hero. In some places,
it's you know, it's a HOGI In other places there's
different names depending on which region of the country you're in. Anyway,
wild Man says, if you're ever able to make it
to Columbus, Ohio, it would be awesome to see all
there at a mallor meet and greet. I'll tell you what,

(10:47):
wild Man, we got to get a deal like Danny
g has with these graduate hotel people. Maybe you guys
can reach out. You the listeners can reach out to
graduate hotels and say, hey, we got Malard meet and greets.
I'll go to all these places and do the malored
meet and greet. We already have a gentleman that runs
a bar in Columbus, Ohio who is offering to host
a malor meet and greet so we can burn up
the road do a malor meet and greet. I think

(11:08):
that would be great. I hope that happens. While Man,
nothing is scheduled at this time. What is next on
the mail bag? That would be Mike in the Fullerton
train Station, It says. Nobody loves Fullerton more than Mike
and sokel He says, Hey, Ben and Danny g I

(11:30):
don't know if you guys heard about it or not,
but a Dodger radio clown picked a fight and lost
with a much more talented national radio host. Look it
up if you haven't, Wow, he says. Anyway, have either
of you ever injured yourself going down a children's slide?

(11:51):
Says Mike in the Fullerton train Station.

Speaker 3 (11:55):
Ben, I bet when you were little Ben, maybe you
were Ben little bait. Ben, maybe you were never little,
but young Ben, you probably burned your legs one time
going down Yes hot, Yes.

Speaker 1 (12:06):
Everything when we were kids was not designed four kids.
It was way too hot.

Speaker 3 (12:11):
Yes, rusted steel in one hundred and ten degrees summer weather.

Speaker 1 (12:15):
God, it was like a it was like a death course,
obstacle course when you were a kid. Yeah, I did
burn my ass and my legs on the slide multiple times.

Speaker 3 (12:26):
Yeah, we had third degree burns from some of the slides.

Speaker 1 (12:32):
Yeah, hundred percent. Now I do have a fun fact about.

Speaker 3 (12:38):
Careful now they may hear about this.

Speaker 1 (12:40):
I know, I know I have a fun fact. Did
you know that Kobe Bryant's favorite Mexican restaurant was in Fullerton?

Speaker 3 (12:52):
How about that?

Speaker 1 (12:53):
Did you know that?

Speaker 2 (12:53):
No?

Speaker 1 (12:54):
Yeah, yeah, Kobe was a regular at It was called
think it's called El Camino Real, I believe was the
name of it is in Fullerton, still there. It was
his actually his wife's favorite place, but he would go
with his daughters and stuff when they would eat their
you know, regularly. What's the name, it's called El I
think it's called El Camino Real. It's in Fullerton. If

(13:15):
you like, type in Kobe's favorite Mexican restaurant in fullerton'll
it'll come up and they even have like the meal
that he used to eat all the time. So if
you're a big Kobe Bryan fan, you go in there.
And eat just like Kobe did. Anybody on the Clippers
is half of what Kobe Bryan is. How Dave he
was a regular there for like twenty years. He would
go in there quite a bit. That just popped in

(13:37):
my head because I saw I saw something about that randomly,
and I saw Mike Mike's name in Fullerton. I was like,
wait a minute, I wonder if Mike and Fullerton has
eaten at Kobe's favorite Mexican restaurant.

Speaker 3 (13:49):
I don't know. They don't have a helicopter tour of
the restaurant.

Speaker 1 (13:52):
Oh, Danny, too soon, Danny, how dare you?

Speaker 3 (13:55):
I had to and I love Kobe. I have a
Kobe Bryan tattoo.

Speaker 1 (14:00):
I know I was gonna say, of all people, of
all people, Danny.

Speaker 3 (14:04):
My good. Kobe would have laughed. He would have laughed.

Speaker 1 (14:07):
No, No, that's a pretty decent drive.

Speaker 3 (14:10):
Though.

Speaker 1 (14:10):
Kobe lived in Newport Beach to get up to Fullerton.

Speaker 3 (14:13):
And that's the shitty part. Had he not lived way
out in the woods like you do, he wouldn't have
had to do a stupid helicopter ride to work or
to the game that he was going to for his daughter.

Speaker 1 (14:23):
To be fair, though, even if you live in LA,
you still need to take a helicopter to get around,
so it's still still the problem. The traffic is an issue.

Speaker 3 (14:32):
Basically, the shitty traffic in LA is what killed Kobe.

Speaker 1 (14:35):
That is right, All you people stuck in goodlock traffic
in LA, you are responsible for the demise of Kobe.

Speaker 3 (14:41):
Has holes. There you go.

Speaker 1 (14:43):
JJ in Idaho writes and says, hey, Ben, Danny, Ben,
I heard you with Fred Rogan. A lot of people
Danny who show this week? We're up to two uh,
he says, I heard you with Fred and yet you
he forced you to talk hockey. How painful was that? Well?
We did one segment, JJ, about the LA Kings coach.

(15:06):
That's it. One segment.

Speaker 3 (15:07):
This is why I listened to Rogan so infrequently.

Speaker 1 (15:14):
I was not blindsided. I will tell you that the
great Kevin Figures, who produces the Fred Rogan Show and
also works at Fox Sports Radio. Who kfig He informed
me that that would be a topic of conversation. That
would be a topic. So I spent about thirty seconds
of a malor investigation kind of digging around trying to
find some information out about the.

Speaker 3 (15:35):
King's coach, the hockey cheat code you entered into your Google.

Speaker 1 (15:39):
I had like one or two things in the back
of my head about the Kings. The main point I made,
and I believe I made this on the air, was
the King's tried to trade for the Bruins goaltender and
were rejected because he had a no trade clause. So
I brought that up, and then Fred brought up a
guy from the Maple Leafs, marner Man, who he wanted

(16:01):
the Kings to to get it or they couldn't afford
him or whatever.

Speaker 3 (16:05):
You had me at maple Yeah, I'm more interested in
maple food than I am hockey.

Speaker 1 (16:10):
No, and I would have been better off talking about
like maple syrup. Yeah, that would have been seriously for me.
I would have had more knowledge of that.

Speaker 3 (16:16):
But I know I tune in. I know I tuned
into LA sports talk radio to listen to hockey talk,
hot hockey talk, and me, of.

Speaker 1 (16:24):
All people talking hockey, not just hockey talk, but me
talking hockey, somebody rather.

Speaker 3 (16:28):
I'd rather hear you cover Marble championships.

Speaker 2 (16:32):
Yeah.

Speaker 1 (16:32):
I did get email from people who were happy they
I was forced to talk about the Lakers quite a bit.
Who me, because you know, I enjoyed that well just
as much. Clearly. Uh here's one from Steve. He says,
Ben and Danny, I've had I've heard no update recently
on the cockroach infestation in your studios. Has the problem

(16:55):
been taken care of? Uh So, I don't know about you.
During the day day, I have not seen any. I
have not seen any cockroaches at night, but there's still there.

Speaker 3 (17:06):
I walked into the production studio a few days ago
and I heard a crunch. Oh my gosh, I thought
I stepped on a dorito. It was a cockroach. Yeah,
it was a I stepped on one that was It
was already dead, laying on its back. It looked like, oh.

Speaker 1 (17:24):
Yeah, yeah, that's the thing. When they lay on the
back there, that's the sign they're ready to check out. Yes,
that's the It's like human. How sad is it that
we're experts on coach cockroaches.

Speaker 3 (17:35):
Behavior because we spent the last decade, well you twenty
years with me ten years. Yeah.

Speaker 1 (17:41):
How great is it that cockroaches can live a full
life in our building and then when they're ready to die,
they have a nice, humane death. They just roll over
on their back and that's that lived a good life
and and whatnot. And I have got.

Speaker 3 (17:53):
Still crawling around looking for grand slams from Denny's.

Speaker 1 (17:56):
I have had people say I'm a little crazy. I'm
a daredevil because I'll sometimes walk around at night, you know,
because o're their foot, Yeah, barefoot. People say what are
you doing? You're gonna step on a cock road. I'm okay,
I'm all right. I got enough callouses on my foot.
I'll be okay, I'll be fine. Kenny writes in from

(18:18):
Cannona City. He says, Hey, guys, would you rather get
a paper cut every time you turn a page? Or
bite your tongue every time you eat? Oh? I think
that's turning a page? How often you turn a page?

Speaker 3 (18:34):
Well, I was speaking of Dorito's. Couldn't help it. I
hardly ever eat chips, just like fries. But in our
vending machine in Sherman Oaks they have cool ranch. Dorito's
probably your favorite, No, I think? So I was so
hungry man, because I really I was like you. I
was fasting that day, not on purpose, though, So I

(18:55):
got the hand sanitizer. I was ready to go, stuck
my hand into that bag of yous. First bite down,
I bit the inside of my cheek. It's the worst
because then not only does it ruin what you're eating,
then you know it's gonna be a good three four
days before that heals. What do you do besides mouthwash

(19:15):
and peroxide? Maybe there's nothing you can do to really
heal that sucker one hundred percent. Now here's what I
want you to do, Danny. Next time, I want you
to make a pizza. I want you to make it, say,
right out of the oven, and then when it's as
hot as it possibly can be, I want you to
cut the pizza and then take a giant bite out
of the pizza. I then want you to burn the

(19:38):
entire right lower right part of your tongue. And then
after that, I want you to go to the studio
and I want you then to do talk radio for
four hours with a lisp a burn tongue. And then, Danny,
I want you to come back the next day and
do it again, and the day after and the day after. Yeah,

(20:02):
so you burned your ass on a slide and your
mouth on a pizza.

Speaker 1 (20:06):
Well, that was the famous the pizza burned tongue. I
have no patience. I ate the pizza too fast. I
was coming off of Fast and I burned my tongue
and I did the whole show, an entire week of
radio with a lisp. I sounded like the old Notre
Dame coach Lou Holtz, if you know who that is.

Speaker 3 (20:21):
It was terrible.

Speaker 1 (20:22):
And this is proof God love our bosses. They're not
often listening because I have done shows with laryngitis. I
have done shows with coughs where I had to stop
in the middle of a monologue because I was coughing
up a lung. I've done a week of shows with
my tongue burned. All of these things have happened. But
to answer Kenny's question, Yeah, I would much rather have

(20:45):
a paper a paper cut, which is also sucks, right,
A paper cut is very painful, but the tongue is
the money maker.

Speaker 3 (20:53):
Yeah. That hand sanitizer I love to use all day long.
Couldn't use that with all kinds of paper cuts all
over my hands?

Speaker 1 (20:59):
Yeah, that would be a bit of a bit of
an issue. And that is one of the perks that
we get at Fox Sports Radio. We get free coffee,
free water, free ice, and hand sanitized.

Speaker 3 (21:07):
Oh, there are big jugs of hand sanitizer all over yeah.

Speaker 1 (21:11):
Which is odd considering the pandemic has been over for
a while. But they're just prepared for the next pandemic.
They're prepared for the next pandemic for sure, all right.
Fred writes in from Spring, Texas. He says, greetings, gentlemen,
what do you guys? What are your two guys middle names?
Do you like them? Or if you could, would you
like another? I really enjoy both best of the Overnight

(21:33):
Show and the Fifth Hour podcast. Well, thank you, Fred.
My middle name is a close kept a secret, much
like Homer J. Simpson. You know, just the Jay and
that's it. But what you want to give your middle
name out to the mass.

Speaker 3 (21:50):
I don't mind. So I'm Danny Leroy Gara Delli Lee Roy. Yesamy,
you're laughing, but that's my middle name, my son Leroy,
Is that right? Is that right?

Speaker 2 (22:07):
Yea?

Speaker 3 (22:08):
My mom is a huge Luther Vandros fan, huge Michael
Jackson fan, and she loved this character on TV. His
name was Leroy. Okay, yeah, I'm not sure what show
it was, way back in the olden days.

Speaker 1 (22:20):
Well, you'll be happy to know that my middle name
starts with an S, and so my first two initials
are bs bullshit, which is could that not be more appropriate?
And my first and last initial or BM, so I
have the perfect initials to be a guy in talk radio.

(22:41):
And my favorite quote, which you know Danny I brought.
I bring it up every so often. My favorite quote
from an old Hollywood star the early days of Hollywood,
a comedian named W. C. Fields, who gave the quote,
if you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit.
And that is how I have lived my life and
it is continued to this day. So I live my

(23:02):
life like W. C. Field's joke back in that he
had alive.

Speaker 3 (23:06):
I'm making him proud all these years later. Yeah.

Speaker 1 (23:08):
He is the guys that start every day off with
a smile, so you can get it over with. Just
get it over with right there. That's it. He also
said I'm pree of all prejudiced. I hate everyone equally,
so that was also a great line million million years ago.
And I will remind you again there's a street if
you ever go to Universal Studios that goes along the
one oh one Freeway towards Universal Studios. It's got W. C.

(23:31):
Field's name on it, which is which is kind of
neat what else do we have to see? Page down,
page down? Alf from the Melting Pot Rights in he says,
do you guys have any good regional or ethnic ethnic
words or phrases racist? For example, here in New England,

(23:52):
chocolate sprinkles are often referred to as Jimmy's. But I
know Ben had no clue what the hell I was
talking about. In one of my riddle answers, says Another
example is soda. Oh, here we go, dany, here we go. Yeah.
Another example is soda, where some people refer to it
as pop. My mother in law from the eastern part

(24:13):
of Massachusetts called it tonic. Another one would be subs,
Hogy's Heroes, et cetera. It's almost like Alf has been
listening to the podcast.

some hogies and take them to the Dodger game. Yeah, yeah,

sub sandwich, No, a Hogy Yeah.

Speaker 1 (24:36):
New York they call them heroes, We call them subs.

Speaker 3 (24:39):
How about the parts of the country that call Reese's
pieces reces.

Speaker 1 (24:45):
Yeah, that's a Little lod.

Speaker 3 (24:46):
Yeah, no, it's Recey's. I've argued with people from the
middle of the country, in the East Coast. They're like,
it's Recey's. I'm like, no, it's not. It's Reese's. Where
do you get Rece's from that?

Speaker 1 (24:56):
Yeah, it's it's a weird Well, it's like some restaurants
just have like parties. They literally have different names, depending
if you're east or west of the Mississippi.

Speaker 3 (25:04):
Jason Martin from out kick the Coverage back in the day,
he grew up in Kentucky and he was like, yeah,
my favorite Halloween food is Reese's peanut butter cups. Give
mean Reese's. He's like, no, it's Rece's.

Speaker 1 (25:15):
He argued with me, Okay, yeah, I'm here at Reese's team.
Reese's alf also says.

Speaker 3 (25:21):
Oh, I think there's any teams, it's just Reso.

Speaker 1 (25:23):
Okay, all right, Well I agree with you know. Lora
Alf says, Lorraine, U is the greatest Bennette ever since
that one time that Danny g agreed with one of
your takes and Coop and Eddie made his work environment
so uncomfortable that he had to leave the show. That
is from Alf, and he says, pss f Vassa is

(25:44):
what what?

Speaker 3 (25:45):
Alf?

Speaker 1 (25:46):
Alf says? All right, Yeah, Loraine is doing a great job.

Speaker 3 (25:49):
You know what.

Speaker 1 (25:49):
I like it that Lorraina does. I should point this
out to it at some point. She's very quick when
I when I stop at the end of a commercial,
a live read, and then she goes to the commercial.
Sometimes there's some blag time. I love it when it's
a tight board and it boom.

Speaker 3 (26:03):
Right to the Oh.

Speaker 1 (26:04):
Yeah, he's really good about that, and it sounds so
much better. I'm not going to name anybody, but I
have had people in the past where I would end
the commercial. I would point at the engineer and there'd
be one one thousand and two, one thousand three, one
thousand and four, one thousand and five, one thousand and
then they'd play the commercial in next commercial.

Speaker 3 (26:21):
And oh, you're you're right. The very first time I
met her, she said, look, I'm so tight.

Speaker 1 (26:32):
Moving on, moving on a Mike from Delaware, right city. Uh, well,
I think he's I think he's writing the wrong podcast.
He said, Band and Danny, what kind of art do
you guys enjoy? Yeah, I think you're well.

Speaker 3 (26:50):
Hip hop is art. Yeah, I love hip hop?

Speaker 1 (26:54):
What kind of art? I don't.

Speaker 3 (26:56):
I don't know. I think Ben loves Picasso paintings. Oh yeah,
what's the last museum you went to? It was a
hip hop I did go to the hip hop museum. Yeah,
look at that. You're cultured.

Speaker 1 (27:07):
Yeah, I guess I like interactive things. I don't. I
don't want to go to a stuffy art museum. There.
There are a lot of museums these days where they
are more interactive, you know, things you can kind of
kind of check out and touchy, touchy feely. I kind
of like that.

Speaker 3 (27:23):
Were you big baby CoA? The books? The only books
he likes are those ones that each page you turn
there's something, there's some texture. Yeah, there's like a different
texture on each page for the little baby to feel.

Speaker 1 (27:36):
Yeah, you can touch the little animals butt and find
it exactly it feels like. And sure it's like that's
what a rabbit's ass feels like. Yeah, Mike, thanks for listening.
But if you think we're art people, you might want
to go to get a hearing aid.

Speaker 3 (27:48):
Or something like that. Yeah. I don't know. I think
you might be talking about Art Subs, which is located
in Woodland Hills, California or arts. Deb I love art.

Speaker 1 (27:55):
Yeah, Matt from Cleveland? Right, since is a Ben and Danny?
If you guys could have oh, here we go. Here's
another stupid question. If you guys could have tentacles added
your body, would you if Elon Musk could find a
way to add tentacles, would.

Speaker 3 (28:11):
You have the procedure? Danny? I mean, what good would
tentacles serve?

Speaker 1 (28:16):
Well, we actually kind of have one already, right, isn't
our tongue kind of like a tentacle? I'm not some
kind of nut liquor here, Like you can move it
around and twist it and all that.

Speaker 3 (28:27):
If it was on your we're going to say are
junk because when we try to turn sideways and fit
through a small space, that's when you know if you
fit or not.

Speaker 1 (28:36):
You want to work blue, you can work blue, Danny.
Danny's working blue, not Dodger blue. A different kind of blue. Yeah,
exactly if I say blue. But yeah, your tongue's kind
of like a tentacle. Right, you can move it around
a little bit and you can like, I don't know,
I'm good, I don't need a tentacle. If you want
to call the tongue of tentacle. Okay, that's good, that's fine,

(28:57):
but I don't need anymore. I'm good, right, I don't
know you. I'm good on that. Anything else, what do
we got? I'll be in tonight, but I know it's
the holiday and all that wonderful stuff.

Speaker 3 (29:09):
I think a lot of our regular shows are working,
though I saw on the schedule year working, Covino and
Rich are going to be in their regular spot. I'm
going to be there, so yeah, it should be a
fun day at the network because Memorial Day, we're not
out of town and you're not going anywhere, right.

Speaker 1 (29:25):
No, I'm I'm here, I'll be be sle Do you
have to.

Speaker 3 (29:28):
Drive into the studios? Are you going to do it
from your home studio?

Speaker 1 (29:30):
Well, we have a deal it's optional on the holiday,
so it'll be a game time decision. Now, normally, would
I I like you drive in? There's no traffic, but
it's because I go in Sunday night for the overnight
into Monday morning. Yeah, so there's usually the traffic is
on Monday night people trying to get back from their
long long vacation. But now the better question is today

(29:55):
being Sunday, will you watch the greatest spectacle in racing,
the Indianapolis five hundred, And I'm going to say that
you will not be watching the Indianapolis five hundred today.

Speaker 3 (30:06):
It's actually something that I tune into each year, just
like the horse races. Now, I will usually have it
on in the background. I'm not glued to every second
of it, but I do have it on.

Speaker 1 (30:17):
I've been to Indianapolis. I didn't go to the brickyard.

Speaker 3 (30:21):
I should have gone.

Speaker 1 (30:22):
Bad job by me. I went to an Indianapolis Indians game,
the TRIAA team there in Indy and did some of
the other Indianapolis stuff, but I did not get to
the to the track the first Indy five hundred back
in nineteen eleven, first one ever. Maybe five million people
watched the Indy five hundred last.

Speaker 3 (30:43):
Year on a b See now, the winner of this
race drinks milk. Yes, that is the milk race, or
as you call it, the milk with an E.

Speaker 1 (30:53):
Well, yeah, you make one mistake, and ten years, ladies,
you still bring it up here one mistake ten times.

Speaker 3 (31:01):
But here's the thing.

Speaker 1 (31:02):
If you were to point out to someone that came
to America from New Zealand or Australia, or London or
in the UK somewhere. What are the biggest traditional American
sporting events. You'd have the super Bowl at the very top, yep,
You'd have the Kentucky Derby, the Masters, and I would
put the Indy five hundred right there that that is

(31:24):
one of those sporting events my entire life anyway, that
you always knew when Indy five hundred weekend was. You
liked it because it was leading into the good part
of the year with the weather, the super Bowl of course,
you know, and the Masters and all that.

Speaker 3 (31:37):
So I always thought it was cool too when the
winner would have the same the container that you get
ojab the jug. Yeah, there's a name for there's a
name for that, dang it. That word is on the
tip of my tongue. Craft when they're holding the milk.
As a little kid, I thought that was so cool
because they were getting milk everywhere, spelling it. To this

(31:57):
day you see highlights of the wind the Winter Circle
with that. Well, it's the one thing my wife, he
said that bothers her the She said, I only have
one thing that that bugs her. She doesn't like it
when she sees me eating a bowl of cereal with milk.
You get away from me. She hates milk. Oh, she
thinks it's gross. Sometimes with like a piece of toast

(32:19):
and jelly, I'll have a little glass of cold milk.
And she thinks it is the grossest thing when she
sees someone drinking milk. Look at me sucking pilf and
milk off a dierty coppet.

Speaker 1 (32:29):
Oh that's odd. I mean I don't like milk.

Speaker 3 (32:33):
I got a milk phobia.

Speaker 1 (32:34):
Yeah, here's a fun you want a fun fact, fun fact,
the fun fact, the fun fact.

Speaker 3 (32:40):
Everyone alert, David Vasse, this is for alf. Do you
know who Lewis Meyer is?

Speaker 1 (32:45):
No, you don't know. Louis Meyer won the Indianapolis five
hundred in nineteen thirty six, and he drank a glass
of buttermilk in Victory Lane after the race, and that
began the tradition pretty much every.

Speaker 3 (33:00):
Year since Peter, all those goats on males, Well a bucket,
you're full, and the goats you're happy.

Speaker 1 (33:06):
And did you know that the Indianapolis five hundred, because
of a fuel shortage, did not run. They were canceled
six times during World Wars because the fuel used needed
to go to the war machine. But other than that,
the race has taking place every year since nineteen eleven.

Speaker 3 (33:26):
Crazy, Now, what if the winning driver was lactose intolerant, Well,
that would.

Speaker 1 (33:31):
Make it even more interesting, Danny, What did I mean?
That would make it even more more exciting?

Speaker 3 (33:37):
Everybody?

Speaker 1 (33:39):
Yeah? Now, has anyone done chocolate milk? Or is it
just the regular milk? Is anyone going? And it's not
butter milk anymore? It's actual milk, right for a long time,
but originally it was buttermilk.

Speaker 3 (33:49):
Now you're onto something. Chocolate milk is delicious.

Speaker 1 (33:51):
Ah, yeah, how about strawberry milk? You can do strawberry too.

Speaker 3 (33:54):
Strawberry chocolate's better.

Speaker 1 (33:57):
Yeah, all right, we'll get out on that. Have a
wonderful the rest of your Sunday again. I'll be in
tonight and all week as per the Fox Sports Radio schedule,
and Danie'll be in as well, so we'll be here
for the holiday. Have a wonderful time whatever you're doing
the rest of the day and barbecue, have a good
time whatever it is, and we'll talk to you. I'll
be on tonight eleven o'clock in the west, two am

(34:19):
in the east. Will be yapping away with you.

Speaker 3 (34:22):
