On two years ago died all us. -- is there anything you don't do we got martial arts -- you're an aspiring screenwriter. I human race car driver. Terrible everywhere and it builds and all these bills supplement our -- desperate -- That's the only thing and -- this before it. That's what -- pulled out an open mind off let's compare -- what's the biggest billions on your desk what's it for. Tax preparation 1775. Right now that's the one. I had a jittery. Those property taxes in Dallas is a corporate is income taxes. Income taxes done liked -- preparation of -- -- taxes from my returns my Jones and San Diego. So they got there it's there. But yet it out yet. Dot com let's see here I would just built a we just built a cool. So I don't know. I was Steve's pool and spa. We can see that that -- is cool in spots where them about a seventy bucks right now. SS I got. It. Well you know Bulls are expensive but it's it's a necessity out of California so I understand you know. It is it is and the kids are having fun and that's all that matters -- Yeah yeah right like two boys you know I mean that's would you do it I don't spend any money on myself anymore you'll learn it eventually when you become a death. The -- -- I -- I don't know -- on the team it's a minute that it -- -- you have like a fancy car instantly -- like under tonight as does all the things I don't like yellow -- and cool like. Got three kids grow from -- You know they did it sort of scares me a look at -- I'm sure I'm sure figured. Yeah where you got -- immigrants. So it's an update for you but what do you do on an off day. Well. I have a -- -- paperwork that's state enter and then after that many good. So. I got everything erased -- simulator delivered I'm a couple weeks ago after you get to see custom custom fit so many go there this afternoon and did. So it's pretty sweet its present day. This hypocrisy the diesel -- -- you sit and it -- like conforms exactly your body. So that way when you driver -- wrestled it it moves around it shakes and stuff you know it's it's pretty epic its sixth start -- at Disneyland you know except -- You know little IndyCar chassis so it's pretty sweet. Gotta be pretty street. And I loved Indy it's fun but it just it's always -- it's spirit. And -- for a what you're sit on the when you sit on the beads it conforms to your body so yeah I Saturday. Would my big -- break the beads. No no it and you can you like. You like. Like in -- box seats. Set the deeds and then like you have 25 minutes to get it right and you have to place it perfectly in there. And not move and it conforms totally them to my and my eyes. Which are large and then you know mentally he's so that I sit in the little the little tough. And then when I get in there it's like and you're like an astronaut and -- seatbelts and all that stuff you know and you can -- I'll send you the link. Also -- into the that the thing on animal Tex -- -- here but it's all a motor sports simulators dot com and it's like certain sort of predator -- X five's whatever it's called and it's been it's ridiculous it's amazing so it's a lot cheaper -- crashing a real risk. It's that's what I think its debt gets expensive. Let's talk about I what are your other hobbies baseball. -- -- I just that's where the Yankees. What's it got to play type atmosphere there in Arlington. Is crazy I mean. You don't at this time a year we have the expanded rosters we have like. Thirty guys -- the team right now so we're able sort of mix and match. We have like three or four lefties in the bullpen now so it's like unitarian -- we bring in -- lefty -- we bring another race -- and I mean. The games are all really tight you know if -- -- -- score runs on bonds and sacrifice -- isn't stealing bases and stuff in Nam. If -- -- it was insane knew it was there than trying to three best game we've played don't eat here. Other and then the starting pitching that I turned it on credit which is absolutely atrocious and other than that. Cliff history yesterday. Tommy does really well at affordable and it -- series so I'll. And everybody everybody at the -- serving to their stuff and you know it was awesome because the Yankees -- the team that everybody measures themselves against an American needs -- -- ago. Let it go there and get beat and then they come here. A couple weeks ago and we split with them what we like La won one game with a walk often lost in the game -- on. And then to have all these teams -- really tight. It was for sure atmosphere as close as I've ever been -- playoff atmosphere you know we haven't been there yet but obviously this is the year where you we have we got our best chance ago. And that's a team that we know we're gonna to be if we're ever do anything else it's like you can go there and thinking barbecue in the first round you know intriguing and split. When actually -- dance you know little -- series you know what -- -- in the big deal. And that's the team needs to be you know. Well obviously if you win the World Series and you're gonna be sprinting out to the mound you're not honest when you eventually clinched. Yeah I would be wondering if you're going to be wearing shoes at all because I understand you have got an interest in in barefoot. Running. I don't know it. -- -- Yeah. Yeah next. These this little they're they're collaborators. Alone and like a lot of anywhere you know to -- it process end. You know basic training and stuff. But arm you know I got these things and I read this book called born to run and -- super inspired I do a lot of barefoot sprinting in the offseason. On this -- program and Aaron insanity to be starter in general that are important. End. You know also talked about -- -- like Indians and Mexico are doing these runs -- differently fifty miles hundred miles you know. In hours later I won't eat you know just or somewhere so then I finished the book book and calm. We're not the next day and ran two miles in Toronto just in my socks later in the stadium you know does that. Like I did I did laps around the fields around until it's about two miles and a I felt my calves -- like a lot more fired up but he was in the book it talks about how it. He's like super had to choose. -- -- increase. Knee injuries foot injuries because it's like it's not -- are buddies -- me to run we're not -- like. Run and had a she's we have all. You know to let it run barefoot tonight chased him and gears and stuff conflict which is it's crazy crazy idea but it actually in the book they figure it's a scientific process there and it's it's really it's really it I guess is that page turner it was like. -- -- de Vinci code readers like -- always anxious to see what happens next but with Indians and running and you know evolution and animals and stuff that's restraints. But on these things are good as you can run on dirt and you can run you out doors are concrete stuff with them. -- opinion to change your game you know instead of running like Q like yours -- this first and then your -- that yet to -- run on your toes the whole time. You know and then use you are actually yes. Taxes the suspension instead of having your -- padding in the Internet keys or whatever -- So I'm sure nineties Berrian dropped saint capital what are you know I'd I had an athlete so -- an -- for Warriors. It happens. The can't stand out in the competition's over you wind blows in pristine. Ball player ever had it so I mean what's brought up big foot split. Yeah right -- that wins it for -- All I need to -- but he can't have stepped in between their toes like Rich Harden was in an ideal it doesn't like there are some. Is like I got this thing in the stuff in between those that hit. Q the -- it can handle it nooks and hit right that's enough that's enough for the toe jam stories please. Aren't you ready for your trivia here in the cheap seats. -- -- an era area. Okay. Would be the Rangers had been to the post season three times however they have won it eight total -- won that game.
