I mean I'm sports patent and sort rarely do you see someone who grew up watching the team. But they now play for Luke and not only doesn't not happen here doesn't happen in sports and that's not just a figure of speech when we say grow up watching the team. We actually mean grew up watching the team he met very very young drove down.

You know if you're an actor you wanna go to Hollywood if you're you're playing your plea for the biggest names in sports the New York Yankees you know the Pittsburgh Penguins of hockey.

Senator or bock there's an eternal law and order and watch him. I see. See him at the top of his game looks very zone Jerry or thought done pastor a couple years ago and it's sad that he died but it was great for it like. The immediate aftermath to celebrate life and times Gerry or black Broadway star movie star he was in dirty dancing. On he put baby in the corner he did he try to. But many realized he runs his wrists. But then you know obviously Lennie Briscoe online order for so many years and that kind of talent coming in northeast PA that's great and we celebrated we hold onto. We do and again. It kind of sent us through who passes from northeastern Pennsylvania who else has kind of mean it's had a quote unquote big time. And I think you and I had kind of some differing views on who was what we put the list together let's just say that some of whom we both went well yeah. Absolutely NFL hall of Famer Mike Munchak. No brainer he's reached the top of his profession. But then there are others where. I don't even know who some of these people are in your like all of that. I've immediately probably Jeanne coup was sacked for a from books fairy you may know her best as one of Asher is Rick rents his wife. In the movie parenthood and choose also Jeff Daniels rejecting us. Mr. Daniel's wife or is it confused between jets Daniels and bridges who just Daniel's wife and rector phobia. And it's an Hampshire both of those are great movies crane device and she was great in them and I was very excited because those movies are part of my. Kind of nine each youth and now we are also super excited to see.

Taken in by the native American clan Kevin Costner actually ran into and that's a Kevin Costner was able to talk. To the need Americans in the movie and she really brought two worlds together she's a uniter. Mike she's a uniter wabash there's also local debt is way different than what I thought was going on with them movie I thought. That she was a Caucasian. Inappropriately cast in a native American role kind of how I Tilda Swinton and Doctor Strange words. Cast any rule that was tipped green comics and an Asian character and all. Is this here's more white lies this political correctness and white washing before is there way before it was a thing there I don't know. She was that this is a story line specifically chosen and perfectly cast. Up I'm nursing dances with wolf see you get a pass for Iraq to phobia and parenthood I think got bounces rank Iraq a phobia and parenthood combine just about as long as Dances With Wolves the first half of it and it's just a long movie.
