RUSH: Robin in Aspen, Colorado, great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Mr. Limbaugh. Hello.
CALLER: Hi. I kind of wanted to say, you know, I hope the Raiders win over the Steelers, it would be great, if the Steelers did go home after the first half, that would be tremendous for us.
RUSH: You a Raiders fan?
CALLER: Yeah, unfortunately.
RUSH: Oh, man.
CALLER: It’s not easy, but I am a loyal Raiders fan. Pardon me. I also just wanted to say real quick, if you just give me one second, what a tremendous thing it has been for me and my growth into manhood to have you as a teacher and an example, and I wanted to tell you that I really appreciate you and everything that you do, because there was a time in my life when I didn’t know exactly what direction was best, and I started listening to you and it put everything into the right perspective for me and it helped me to attain moral clarity.
RUSH: That’s all well and good.
CALLER: I just wanted to thank you so very much.
RUSH: I appreciate that, I really do, that’s all well and good, but I wouldn’t call myself a total success.
RUSH: I mean, you’re still a Raiders fan. (laughing)
CALLER: Well, you know, I’m not perfect. I’m striving.
RUSH: That’s what Tiger is saying, he’s not perfect. Look, let me give you some hope here. If the Pittsburgh Steelers can lose to the Kansas City Chiefs, they can lose to the Oakland Raiders.
CALLER: I feel slightly better.
RUSH: I don’t think it’s going to happen. They’re going to get Roethlisberger back, and the coach, Mike Tomlin, said after the game, after they lost to Baltimore late Sunday night, said, ‘We are going to unleash hell in December.’ That’s from the movie Gladiator, which is one of his favorite movies, watched it the night before the game. It’s unlikely that they’re going to lose to the Raiders, but if they lose to the Chiefs, I mean the Raiders would beat the Chiefs.
CALLER: Yeah, that was a fluke, though.
RUSH: Well, yeah, I have to give you that. At least you have your team in perspective. Robin, thanks for the call. I’m out of busy broadcast moments here because we have to go to a hard break, but thanks much, I appreciate it.
