  • When I was when I was a kid, I really loved the Miami Dolphins because I just loved Bob Greasy.

  • I loved him on day.

  • Then, later on, you know, I there was a guy that graduated from the University of Tennessee named Stanley Morgan, and Stanley went to the New England Patriots And that's where my love affair for the Patriots started because of Stanley Morgan.

  • And and But I, uh And then and then Sean got the job and, uh, in New Orleans, and that led to me, you know, getting a sweet and taking my father down there every Saturday.

  • And and, um, boy a z all no, We had a lot of fun down there in New Orleans for several years.

  • Yeah, Kenny, you had a lot of great times over at Gillette Stadium.

  • I remember Vrabel telling me 11 meeting during training camp that you wanted us on stage to seeing back where I come from.

  • And I swear I learned nothing during that day because I was just memorizing the lyrics back.

  • You had so many.

  • I'm picking against my own son today, so I'm throwing it out there.

  • Kenny, what do you think today in this great matchup?

  • Well, here's what I think I gotta Just before I went home with you guys, I got a text from Sean talking about this whole thing.

  • And he goes, I hope that Cameron doesn't catch too many touchdown passes tonight.

  • So e, I love him, but I hope I hope he's not that successful.

  • I think it's gonna be a great game.

  • I'm glad.

  • I think that Thomas is playing tonight for the ST which is really gonna help.

  • I think it's gonna be an amazing game.

  • And, you know, Tampa Bay has got a lot of weapons, but, you know, the defense is really good for the saints, so I am going to go with the New Orleans Saints tonight.
