And strongly and the mosque in the garage follows Brittany and I saw most more than Larry Bird into the return to theory garrison DO fossil Kelly and reading in the. Boris it is there's parts great adjustment and it gets good Terry. Are. I awoke today I am looking down at me the hair was Silber is face wrinkled its breath smell like a big Mac. But he still had that smug sadistic yet seductive. Southern chicken bleep grin that got him elected 29 years ago quote. Hillary you bag yourself a big one he tackled. As it be just fell between Monica Lewinsky's guys. Well the 100 time you've. You caught foxhole Callahan trump gave me a shout out at the inauguration. 199229. Years ago. Don't in my twenty years and it's less I lay completely naked and tied to a cold metal slam. I displeased my thighs to prevent my boys. And sneak it through his music icebergs surface. Now. My ass fell. Obviously you Roemer was big talker the last couple days. He is no longer among our own list of rotating coast part of that is in relation to your big announcement yesterday of course. And Kirk you recently discussed the passing of your parents and very open podcasts like filters and an element of what I've been dealing with and who I am that I looked off the show because I was afraid of judgment and help people would perceive me. I'm alcohol. Then last April came to a head I had eight intervention so to speak with my film we are blessed Christmas. I hit this almost entirely from people very close to me well and I like my family about how I was doing with that I blame to show what when you guys. So people like quit the show I thought there who get off my back. My drinking increased last April and I had alcoholic hepatitis last April 25. I cut myself shaving before going to a Celtics game the blood didn't stop. All my patch it up for a bit I woke up and pull what does a kept leaving when I went to bed and went to the icu for two nights. And come from there. Went to a rehab facility through McClain in Boston. For a month classmate got out last June and then over the though those civil wants from June until August when I came back. Have been just dealing with my anxiety and depression and other things that popped up my life over the years and Lester 25 of this year was when you're sober from alcohol so. That was my big good gras actions. Not that great. He gave the background on the show today. Why he chose the make this announcement Kirk yet more questions might have more questions but that just in general value field today after the big reveal great it was amazing the amount of people I used to work with the radio you know old friends of mine the elephant in the sports bar to day the reach of the show is. Unbelievable you saw a rating of African sixteen June's group obviously a lot of people listening but I mean my form is you know buzzing all day with different people checked in and then that felt great in a lot of people are caring about your. One thing that was a little frustrating yesterday is that a lot of friends I get a text from him in total producer worked for previous yen or somebody at CBS or whatever. An acrylic over must of heard the the segments and open attacks to get that Brandon Marshall out. Yeah nationally Brandon Marshall was a juggernaut and everybody up all. Our stores get treated differently we said there's a different standard that you said the black athletes were held the difference and where are meg considering score that you guys. So if that's what she goes when I do mean you can go to bush. Like guys do black guys in the matter couldn't treated differently period. OK so obviously we took we admit that Brady was treated pretty solid stars like guys and America is treated differently. Sure I'm but I but do you think the U that professional athletes are treated differently but that we're having been hand suspensions they gave they look at us it was just like in disguise what I mean you we don't do is interview. Cargo for this interview. I'm going to go that's it ashore have positive why. Because then we just have some stores or rumors you know I mean come on mate going back to a year ago broker. Let's part of the bands that you guys made moves and I get rid of martial artists they like you treat differently announced its that was dropped the Mike what you guys that says if you believe what there's a difference in these and actually times just all of their conversation as we talk O Brady's Brandon talk radio all the time with what we do you quote. Change the subject on gitmo from governor Mike OK guess what the other thing we're gonna ask you do you think that. In the way and sprint Marshal of the New York Giants when you do you think in the way. Luck is not the word of one use but if you we've been to Houston in which it accused him in the past. Rea on don't you it's about the apparent consensus user groups that in the questions. Throws off yet. Partially because units at FaceBook live video Ford. Like earlier Patrick teaming him credit. That was a good job by him you risk and he kept rolling as we got the walk out walk all right rosary showed copies bill Lowe is a talker did he spoke to cut potentially did not. The the sari and and you heard in the background he gets Phyllis coffee yet rated audience here Nellie that bout that was an act to better he did he know he every just ask you face and he was apologizing for any any was actually try to clean it up for us it was you know as it was fuel and of course Roemer and he has. Holding this over your head. Mysteriously nobody knew what the secret laws I would like to talk Chris Curtis I wanna know is listening he told me a pretty personal secret about himself a few months ago but I've kept under wraps so if you wants to see Al stream or be a snake. I'm not tying it now. That's not the kind of person I am turning. By CU got a little something it would be a shame if that secret had to come. So you've got a little something on Chris Curtis that you can hold over him at a Fiske as a little out of hand and you feel like you've been pushed to the brink. Let's Packers is caught I understand that but you know the gleeful piling line and now hearing in the producers podcasts like. The frosting on the cake if you. But it really is unbelievable when you think back it that it was his instinct flawless. It is. Exploit your battle with alcoholism. I mean. I know you've been careful subject and I can understand why does it put shoot a bad spot almost you get Roemer in trouble it's it's a burden on you. She more pissed at me. You want me fired a buyer for you to be honest I would F king hate everything about right now I procure trust. My point is while I want my story and who I am to be about your misery in you getting fired how does that help me getting you fired in the long run just creates a headache for me. I don't wanna wake up tomorrow and semi and burdening in my alcoholism led to you're gonna parred. I'm also I am leery of giving himself knows god effectively transcribe this as polished enough. I am who I am today because of hard work I've put him because of my wife and her trust. Somehow she still trusts me to do another show that's one here I don't think I'm. David anyway by saying only on I got does it all fired. That doesn't do anything for me I did a million things when I was drinking. That would have gotten me fired in the second it's not really my job to get you fired for what he sold well so he self you know thoughtful and so reasonable I don't like that. Riverbed a bunch of mistakes here that is clearly the biggest one and he's done tradition yeah all the that they it was a Kirk set on the show today is that you can march and Matt well the day this happened you were in Montreal with your in laws and that week and so IE you know we often do when one of us has gone through check in with on. And I told you about it I think via text and in your first word is one a snake you know. You could tell immediately. This bothered you mean there is nothing worse thing you can do to someone as a friend as a coworker then what needed to meet in terms of violating trust. You tell someone something hoping to help them as well as you in the show. It was all for synergy case you missed that we are gonna to restore together for the web site have released the morning of a show that he was then. That way every has context we can discuss that similar to how we did today with the rehashing of what happened yesterday congress' belt and then for him to do that I mean there's. There is no lesser form of the person today and to do what he did yesterday really crystallized at the reaction to by people Kirk's reaction. The visceral hate towards river that already exist but then you put that real life example. That's where I really did feel like you know by it was a mass alike to get him fired. And that's not something. Reverse talented he's obviously young it shows up here this was maliciously reckless. He's just got some lessons learned to businesses and for now. It's just so it's so distasteful I can't imagine Jerry we want him back to try everything except sex with a man your announcement otherwise Kirk met with today. A ten on a scale of but he did reach out to you afterwards as well and it clearly it was. Yeah and I served arrived home yesterday was you know. Great you reach though we spoke commandment talked to Kirk and Gerry called later yesterday afternoon and Jerry actually said to me and coming from Jerry you know is he's a guy I've always looked up to and he says you made radio history today. Repeating those words to my wife last night there was about as big moments ago route so that was awesome. Turkey Jerry. Is Marlon that you hit it for so long which is amazing nothing. Is kept from Kirk. That's the you know the amazing part to me also just add on to court finds out everything. You'd keep that from in his stunning you can't stop Kirk Manning and it's impossible. I'm a runaway god in training there almost so callous what I was doing so unbelievably. Detrimental to both my health and my job performance and everything. That it wouldn't strike you with something that you could physically do like. I feel like it was. There was never some on the radar because I never was drinking in front of them. So for them to go from the leap of that is he drunk this morning. Obviously never cross the mine I guess that's true my wife to this day like yesterday after the show. When I talked in shoeless into the segment she says I'm stunned they didn't know what she thought that eventually when I would say it she says bill though bill sale ago I saw this or soda. And she was floored and it's as many as Paul Sharia claims sausage audience. All gonna die young anyway in my eyes what's accelerate the process that doesn't surprise me at all I thought when I was gonna thought you know when I met with bill for large last June I thought. It was gonna come up and somewhere issued performance but even right before I got hired again last August. But there was going to be some questions about my drinking or I always thought up until I signed in light was back of adored my bad I thought there was going to be some questions and even when I first came back but there's going to be somebody in the hall. Who it's checked in on me incinerated stop drinking in nobody ever did was I I was against on myself. Congratulations and years something your fifteen months she said the team consulate and the only Kirk's gonna bring this up Beverly show he's not gonna thought she was this certain chews on like there that we have a new a new criticism or whatever you call it what Graham that's that's that's the new ones when there's about caller on Tuesday via drone corporate Curtis. He's ME Chris presented the sound recess is that it though is that's not the general during their buy yourself a string goes well with that. It's an ideological ally of the burning down a nice feeling guy I this. You know it's inching with your phone you could put liquor store to Google Maps by the ones closest it got crazy it's like it's only 110 of -- perfect pentagon or they are around your hours obviously close your favor what is on the president gym bag in Florida and that's what makes this. Great it's like all of our flaws everything that's bad about anyone of extremist extremely it's all at tables that there's no bull (%expletive) like free thought Bradford. You know it's not late in afternoon hosts like. Rich Q for things that nobody wants that talked about this month. Almost as much Roemer a lot of courage to admit patently year. Here's sold there like that like I say a grand Marshal thing was kind of anti climax. It was those that I guess secondary to the that ten real life stuff now. No it's let's talk about the baseball field next to your house and see how busy it is this time is that per 36. Subtle only he could barely hear it and it was Dale's like I said a grand Marshal thing with. It's belittling your battle topples and two out two hours of radio captain. City yesterday regents. Anyway. We're number one and at work product. And pretty pretty incredible stuff this was unbelievable for many reasons I mean even yesterday's show with. The announcement with Brandon Marshall and then you get the the great ratings news all within about a five hour span it was a pretty cool. Taki Monday and that means we get a weekend store is currently threat and she's a smear that's what's trending now WEEI in WEEI dot com. Could weaken.
