Robin Lundberg: Spoiler alert, Iron Man died at the end of Avengers end game using the Infinity Stones to reverse Thanos' snap. I think that's OK to say now, but it wasn't when LeSean McCoy tweeted it. For more, I'm joined by our Jimmy Traina and Jimmy. People were big mad when that happened, and understandably so. I mean, you know, I was waiting on the edge of my seat to get into a movie theater seat at that time.
Jimmy Traina: Yeah, that was a fun day on Twitter, especially because I don't care about any of those movies. So I could sit back and laugh at it. I'm like you. Obviously, you were pissed off. I think the movie came out on that Friday and he saw it on Thursday or Friday first thing and just put it all out there on Twitter like it was no big thing. And his reaction today, talking about Good Morning football is great because he sincerely apologize that you could see he was taken aback by the level of hate he got on social media. But then he he dropped this phenomenal line. I get it. No, people got that worked up about cartoons. So it was a really it was an apology that turned into another sort of insult, which was pretty great.
Robin Lundberg: I thought McCoy went Scorsese a little bit. You know, the value. Luckily, I'd already seen it when he when he tweeted it. Oh, God. I would argue that a spoiler shouldn't ruin something if the quality is good enough. But in this case, people were just like anticipating how they were going to undo the events of Infinity War so much. That I understand why they were upset with it.
Jimmy Traina: And you have to remember, like you probably had so many people who had tickets to go see, you know, a 4 o'clock show, 7 o'clock show, 8 o'clock show. And then there he just puts it all out there and just kills any sort of anticipation that you can have.
Robin Lundberg: Remember movie theaters, Jimmy?
Jimmy Traina: I vaguely do. I won't be seeing one for a long time.
Robin Lundberg: You can watch an Infinity War and game at home and LeSean McCoy highlights if you want as well. Appreciate your time, as always.
Jimmy Traina: Any time.
