about what you’re pulling. You don’t I’m saying? And I’ve seen like I’ve seen goose’s act for years running in Baltimore. Where do we what do you mean what your pulley? Well, you know what I’m telling you what I’m talking

Michael Irvin  02:23

about guys. I was just telling people. That’s all we talk about is guys. We’ve never talked about stock market. We know nothing about that. We’re about to go to war. All we want to talk about

Nestor Aparicio  02:32

passports and girls.

Michael Irvin  02:36

That’s it. That’s all we want to talk about. Why is it like that?

Nestor Aparicio  02:40

I don’t know. It’s testosterone hormones. A piece in the USA Today this morning about men not desiring their wives. And it’s probably because they have to live with them. That’s what I’m thinking, you know, you get single, you know, really? Yeah, there was a big piece in there about that. I have to read that. These are the guys that are taking care of the stock market and taking care of the business. While the rest of us are sitting around talking about sports and talking about women. Right, right. And they don’t want their wives. Yeah, they don’t want them somebody else. Probably. Yeah. The game, you know, I know your boys key. He’s in the game. You’re in the game. And you got Jerry and you grow. Tim, Tim and Porter is now coming on to be one coming on. Thinking about he wants a Super Bowl here. He’s young enough. Maybe he can get three or a handful wherever many you got. Right. And Jerry already surpassed you he looking for more. Right. Jerry

Michael Irvin  03:39

has three I have three or four. I guess. First that’s why I’m kind of rooting for Tampa. Yeah, so he and I both get go out with three. No, your room. He doesn’t. I talked to him that night. I don’t know. But I love Kiki’s might like we’re very good friend and one’s a very good friend of mine. You know it’s

Nestor Aparicio  03:57

like a team group. I’m a raven guy clearly and I hate everybody else. I hate you when you understand clearly. If you don’t wear a purple and if it’s Vikings purple I hate you too. But but for me I’m trying to find a side and my friend JT the brick is going to get a Super Bowl ring if the Raiders win and he’s the only and Woodson and Sam are you know guys I know pretty well. I don’t have a friend in the world and Tampa Malcolm Glazer done dog Baltimore back when he got the team into him so um and I’ve been a raider hater for a long time but putting it aside this Sunday I’m just putting it aside because I got to pick a side and right you got your friends you want to get a ring

Michael Irvin  04:33

well I got I got some friends that I hope who your friends on the radio well

Nestor Aparicio  04:39

Zack Crockett. Okay,

Michael Irvin  04:40


I like Zach All right x from Fort Lauderdale. But I really liked ki Kishore All right, my boy. And you know, and, and I would love for him to get a ring and to just verify his greatness or how good of a receiver he is, you know, and I can tell Keisha is a key You, you and I, we were not in the systems where we would catch 100 balls every year like Marvin Harrison did Jerry Rice. Sure. And we don’t have that type of offense. So the only way you can validate what you do is by winning Super Bowls. Let’s be honest, you understand

Nestor Aparicio  05:17

there’s only one football on the field, wide receiver, it takes two to tango running backs. Gonna get the ball and if you can run, you will run. If you run the football. Well, that’s what you do. You’re never gonna throw the football, never

Michael Irvin  05:28

throw it, you’ll never throw it. So that’s why it’s important. Like for key to get a Super Bowl rings, get Super Bowl rings and you heard him talk about it all week. He needs that to validate him. Keep

Nestor Aparicio  05:39

Keyshawn Johnson of course in the game this week. Warren Sapp a couple buddies of yours, but they have been the media. I mean, you cherries low key, low key rom Woodson Loki that’s going to be on the Tampa Bay side this. Love it and Gruden in the middle of all this, sir. You’ve been in this? I mean, you had the coach who was the lightning rod, you were lightning rod yourself. You were the star on the helmet. But there was no there was there were plenty of people to take heat off. And I find that some teams like that light on them. Like when the Ravens were in the in the bowl. Everybody wants Shannon want a little piece and the whole array thing was going on at time.

Michael Irvin  06:16

And that team handle it handles it better. That team that said, hey, yeah, like this, bring it on. Bring it on. It’s just seems like they can handle it better.

Nestor Aparicio  06:24

Are you sensing that with the bucks as opposed to the Raiders this week? Even though

Michael Irvin  06:27

it’s the first time I don’t know anybody on the books that have a ring? But but they they’re handling it better than I bring it on, buddy? Yeah, I’ll sit down do an interview. We can talk about it. We talked about let’s talk about we’re here. This is why we got you

Nestor Aparicio  06:42

to be fun. Was there a Super Bowl for you? That wasn’t fun. No, they

Michael Irvin  06:45

were all fun. It shouldn’t be fun. This is the this is the end of a great season. Your first goal setting out the season is to make it here. And Jimmie Johnson would always tell us. Let’s enjoy Sunday. Let’s enjoy Monday. Let’s enjoy Tuesday and Wednesday. We’ll get back to work. So it is part fun. And it does all work. But have some fun, man you got to have fun

Nestor Aparicio  07:06

and then get to work. And then I guess on Wednesday you’d say it’s all business. Still Sunday 9000 on the scoreboard. We win then we go have a

Michael Irvin  07:15

go at half so bore for how much fun. Too much fun for me. I had a whole lot of

Nestor Aparicio  07:23

trouble after Tampa, too.

Michael Irvin  07:27

You know what I’m saying? You go out? Oh, let me be honest. I got it yesterday, though. That told the guys listen, man. I could tell you how to win Super Bowls. I can tell you how to do this. I can tell you what to do Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and I can tell you how to win the Super Bowl Sunday. But right after that stopped taking my advice, because that’s where I went astray. Right. You win. Don’t listen to me anymore. Look, man,

Nestor Aparicio  07:51

I’m a fan. I mean, I’m nothing more than a goof that sits on the radio. I run this crazy radio station and I pump up the Raven. But I can’t imagine having any more joy in my life. And last night we popped in to say hello to JT the brick. And now they run these NFL films. We walked in 10 o’clock at night after that party. They had an upmarket Darrow and they were showing the highlights he was cerebral 35. And you know, I still have to stop and watch it again. And again. And again. It never gets old when I

Michael Irvin  08:15

told key I said key listen, you can catch 800 passes, and win a Super Bowl, and that you will never leave the people. Now you can catch 1000 passes. And don’t win a Super Bowl. And nobody will remember you because when you win a Super Bowl, they’ll play your highlights every year in January when they get ready to play another Super Bowl. They will really have you and relive again and again everybody will stop and watch stop drop in roadway playing it again. Let’s watch it again. That’s what makes you so good

Nestor Aparicio  08:48

every time they do I stop my eyes glaze over and I feel I feel the air I smell the air

Michael Irvin  08:53

you remember you remember a moment what you were doing at that moment? When the first time you watch that game? It was all I remembered what’s the

Nestor Aparicio  09:04

you want three now we want one and we’re probably gonna win five or six the first the first one both

Michael Irvin  09:08

my first touchdown and let me be straight with the I was thinking to myself man at first Super Bowl. in Pasadena, California. I went across on a slant route called a touchdown. And I thought about all my boys that I grew up with that was that was sitting home at the time and I thought to myself, I know right now they’re sitting there they got a beer in their hand court they pass into joy. Boy, that’s my boy. I thought all about that. I was like this is it. This is the greatest thing in the world.

Nestor Aparicio  09:36

Well, there you go. Well it man it’s been a pleasure. You guys are pulling you and I appreciate all the time you get anytime you are with you, man anytime. Please call. I’d love to do that. Absolutely. You know you’re good at this. Do I have a good time? Yeah, that’s the key to a party here two to six every day. It’s just for the people just for fun.
