All I can here's all I can say and I and I again I we started a big debate last night on FaceBook. A lot of people are obviously for the slang and want to see it happened and trust me. It will happen. Maybe it I know that the I know that the Merrill Wichita mr. Jeff Long Wohlers and hurried to get this thing go on. Because he's as he said yesterday on this show. The the window of time is Israel. They wanna have a team on the field that in 2000 wanting the 2018. Season will be a wing nuts these on the Lawrence Dumont stadium. He set on the show yesterday that the day after the wing nut season ends. They will begin to care down Lawrence Dumont stadium and build a new stadium they will have approximately. Eighteen months to get that done. Before the 2001 me. Minor league season starts. So he. Carla and I know at a two year process that I had two years and I know that this is getting done also I'm not a mean to be like there was a time when I was skeptical about whether it was they have an ownership group. Wants to come to Wichita. But does not want any information out until today make the announces Major League Baseball and yeah there's still eyes to be dotted league I get it. I get it I know what's happening. I don't know how I feel like I I feel like I'm kind of the spokesman. For this project will now be don't know why they signed up big and have not journalism. The we don't do journal and I as journalists know a knee and right here neither am I was a journalist for a hundred years. It's in my blood. So I can't ever not being journalists right right but you don't have to be on the radio you're allowed did speak with emotion. Why do a lot I know I'm an emotional guy and I do it soon and that's fine the avid unity your emotions are probably missed it. So OK why do you do that do you mean two yeah I just wanna see if Tommy's. And it did you mean to our us. No you didn't hear so much a part of your vernacular that you can't help it. A lot of things apart mom and nobody's called in with a podcasts that I need to listen to. Now from time to time. I like the vary it up I like one on sit at home while working. I wouldn't mind having a podcast sonet times. Now you've suggested what I've not suggested anything I says something to wrestle with the birth rate Richard is a great podcast okay. I'd like I like sports podcasts I listen to. Though the cardinals Derek Gould doesn't podcasts. But it's not it's okay it's there are good his final two straight laced theory behind that group play the music sync B I don't care now don't go to I got that from. Do I do that a lot of course. That's strange. That was obviously a little on purpose no luck yet so it was. Good grief man. That is about and that's gaining traction around town now if ever I go people are saying it's time it's my dad they shed its egg and the good phrase. Why why of it all off for a wife for yourself through to the emotions of having to come up with that actual emotion. You know what I just decided I need I need a night out. At the shamrock curse on tonight and why I don't know I used to be denied to unwind I feel like a wild tiger right now this ballpark. Things get to me. And it shouldn't why. I thrust into the middle of the public doesn't hear at school near and dear Jane I guess because I post on face you have to understand that there are people out there are varying opinions of the beer the opinions. That it's a bad idea that those should be dismissed. I think but if they if there are valid criticisms and and a little bit of skepticism about how this might work and if people continue to show up in years seventeen or year three or whatever. I mean those are bad those are real. It's interesting that lived in this community or nearby in my entire life why don't we not think more of ourselves. I don't know bad at what is it 80% of the population loves the power and light district and why ultimately wirelessly and I ourselves more here I'd love Wichita I did true. We can make this happen it's going to happen. We're gonna have a whale of a time down there and I'm speaking as a almost 63 year old man you not all be 65. By the time the first day of pled not ballpark. Not the wheel me now he'll be up probably split up you'll be a the call one of the gestures all blown senior citizen right. So it's not like I'm doing this and on the wild man for the next forty years I'll get to I just think it's good for the community. And that is send that there's no age you should stop wishing the best for the community. Joseph while you're on the drive with Bob and Jeff are you. What's up guys are we doing doing well. I Bob you're in that karaoke to merit a Blair must look at return well and being wherever wherever.

They is how early on dobbs good for me. I can't stand leave America a taker for a ride every day arrives she's not gonna forget Shia. Let's get the pastor mark. Pastor Mike I've never needed a call from you more than I need it right now I've got a lot that apparently a lot of issues right now. Well I you know but that's part of being you're just such area. Such as during the recession visionary that when people go see it here we can eat there about how to bat and detached about it stop I mean I Josh I think strike I think it. We were able to overcome all that negative note the taxpaying. Because they're what people like cute boot. Great passionate about it now look what we have an interest during that so I think a baseball locally. It sent to anger and the ballpark estimate of Ethiopia to imagine. I've got diaper described. I don't I don't think they have all the art earned respect for yet. Of course would be like debate as to go public at the river. I mean McLean there's going to be eliminated. No sanity let's say they have been working on this project for quite some time there and many many people in different departments have been working on it so there is not no doubt that there there's a lot more. That we don't know so it's going to be it's just going to be at the thrill when this thing gets don't want. I think it will be so either you I think I think we've seen at chaparral which stop and all that we've done. You know very quietly because cursor over it people out there that. That has such a part looking over their own personal on my deepest upper and we saw that and again about. This they sang a that they can't at a tight and they trauma that man got people up there and we don't want. You know I'm Emma they didn't like about it but Diop would think that bet that need to be no brainer. Canada and yet that back at shutdown basically what people again not my backyard. People say that about not have a. I had feelings about about that to the level may that nobody I don't. Well I I just know that one of those issues that Egypt people start to open up. And then a double package also I think the city is why the Catholic like if you think. Try to keep it under wraps distraught that they don't want it is we really knew what traveler but I was stuck state did what. Year year and a half ago that put up a football alma. And I thought that was and and I have tremendous respect for doctor John bardo but I I just will never understand and now one house star we. They op that they were trying to get it you know it's an interest in the got a little bit.

It made eagle on the backwards so to those people are telling arbitrator I want does Spain. They're Irwin. In all the backup on those issues and I don't like when you're trying to figure out that you want you know. We want to understand who are here cardinal got without them might happen that's what just can't stand I don't want to it.

And now it evident communication with view of all people I spoke with Dave a couple times over Twitter yes I guy that he obviously some. This he probably probably didn't want that out so I'll just say I initiated the communication today doesn't like Q only bikes mean fine. He's made that point abundantly clear. How about abundantly. I wonder if people out there feel like either of us who likable. Why would not be likable no tents no offense but my guy. Some of the things you say. I think the things I say air. Gift was the last time you led the to karaoke. It's been a little bit probably. That last time it sugar Shane silent heard from my band guys and a few way although I don't know they've summarily quietly kicked you out of the I wonder if that's true. They found I wish I wish the guys it's kind of put that together would call. Call here yeah. And I think he listens to the show sometimes I'm not gonna use his name he knows who he is. But is this a banner not. All of a buyout question that's and he can't be three guys show on up. And you know I'm I'm of the opinion that if we're gonna do this.
