Ireland Contracting Nightly Sports Call: October 2, 2019 (Pt. 3)


WELCOME BACK. WE CONTINUE ON PITTSBURGH’S CW. GIVE US A SHOUT AT 412-575- 2600. WE ARE JOINED BY MIKE IN ROSS TOWNSHIP. HOW ARE YOU? GO-AHEAD. NOW. HOW ARE YOU? I JUST WANTED TO CALL. HE WAS THE GREATEST ANNOUNCER I HAVE HEARD THROUGH HOCKEY. HE IS UNBELIEVABLE. HE MAKES THE GAME EXCITING. I WAIT EVERY YEAR TO HEAR HIS NEW SAYINGS. I HAPPEN TO RUN INTO THEM YESTERDAY AND HE SAID HE IS DOING HOCKEY AGAIN THIS YEAR. I KNOW SOMEONE ASKED YOU IF YOU WANTED TO DO HOCKEY. MIKE LANG IS THE BEST. HE IS. HE IS AS COLORFUL AS THEY GET. AND KNACK FOR KNOWING WHAT TO SAY AND WHEN TO SAY IN TERMS OF LEADING TO A CRESCENDO AT THE END OF A PLAY. HE KEEPS ON KEEPING ON. WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING MORE FROM HIM. I MET HIM ON TUESDAY. LET’S GO OUT TO MARK IN CASTLE SHANNON. HELLO. HOW ARE YOU? I HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU. OR A COMMENT. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE PITTSBURGH BUSINESS COMMUNITY, THE CORPORATIONS, CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE OR LOCAL LEADERS AND HARRISBURG GET INVOLVED WITH THE PIRATES THE WAY THEY DID IN MILWAUKEE A FEW YEARS AGO. I DON’T SEE WHY THEY CANNOT DO IT. THEY SHOULD PRESSURE BOB NUTTING EITHER TO PUT A LEGITIMATE MAJOR LEAGUE TEAM ON THE FIELD OR SELL IT TO SOMEONE WHO WILL DO THAT. I WILL LISTEN TO YOUR COMMENTS. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS IT GOES AGAINST THE AMERICAN WAY ABOUT OWNING A BUSINESS. I UNDERSTAND THE VIEW. I DON’T KNOW THAT YOU CAN PRESSURE PEOPLE INTO DOING SOMETHING. THERE IS A PUBLIC TRUST INVOLVED. I HAVE TO CONFESS IGNORANCE ON THE MILWAUKEE SITUATION. I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPEN. THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS WRONG WITH THE WAY GOVERNMENTS ARE OPERATING IN THIS COUNTRY. I CANNOT PUT BASEBALL IN THEIR LAP. BASEBALL IS SCREWED UP ENOUGH. I AGREE. I BELIEVE THEY HAVE OTHER ISSUES THEY SHOULD TEND TO. THIS GOES NOT JUST TO LOCAL GOVERNMENT, THIS IS NATIONAL GOVERNMENT. WE SPEND MORE TIME ATTACKING ONE ANOTHER. THEY SET THE BAR FOR THAT. INSTEAD OF ATTENDING TO THE NEEDS OF THEIR CONSTITUENTS. THE PEOPLE WHO VOTE FOR THEM. THAT IS WHAT THEY SHOULD DO. WHEN SPORTS COMES INTO PLAY, THE GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO GET INVOLVED. IT IS THE WAY IT IS IF YOU’RE GOING TO WASTE TIME AND GOVERNMENT TAXPAYER MONEY TO SEND PEOPLE TO CONGRESS TO DO THAT, I WOULD NOT DO IT. WE HAVE 15 SECONDS LEFT. ANY LAST WORDS? NO.
