only three people in the history of major league baseball in the world series have hit three home runs in the game. and kung fu panda strikes again. >> wake up the ghost of the candy maldonado. >> can you believe what the panda did? >> yeah, i believe it. >> i used to watch hong kong phooey. >> faster than the naked eye. >> i stayed up and watched his four at bat which was a single. i was like only a single, kung fu panda, come on. no guy has ever hit four in a game in the world series. to do that last flight to become one of four guys ever to do it now off of verlander, it is pretty incredible. now, we do have to shift gears to the redskins. on sunday, they have a big game up there in pittsburgh. chris cooley was back in
practice. he feels good. looked good. feel like he is ready to go. mike shanahan said he thought he looked like he was in football shape. we'll find out come football game. so far, so good. we had another interesting development. i love deangelo hall. you know why? because he talks to us after every game, win, lose or draw. he is a stand-up guy. i give him props to that. sometimes he says things that make you scratch your head. yesterday, he said this play here was less to do with eli and more to do with the blown coverage and he said it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out. here what is then happened with this tit for it. at. >> i could have thrown that
ball and he could have scored. it wasn't something like he figured something out. we just played that as bad ad possible. >> i appreciate him giving it to me. thank you. i don't think it took a rocket scientist to figure it out either. you have a guy running open and you hit him. >> really? >> when you get shown up by el its manning. >> here is the thing. i understand his point. he is saying that he we screwed up the coverage. but it makes it sound like such sour grapes the day after and eli is like you're right. it didn't tax a rocket scientist. the guys are open. i knew the ball. >> it didn't take a rocket scientist for sam bradford
either so can we please stop with the talking. >> d-hall wasn't involved in the play. he was trying to defend his teammate. >> we have a couple more hours of. this plenty ahead. today, we say hello to -- i should have looked at this name. sid sharice phelps celebrating her third wedding anniversary today. con congratulations, guys. we'll be right back.
