Despite the improvement, there are cancellations across the area due to the unsafe air quality. High School State Playoffs are once again postponed.

Iris and Steve then move the conversation to Steve’s favorite quarterback, Josh Allen. The Bills star was named the cover boy for this year’s version of Madden. The popular video game does bring some baggage though. The “Madden Curse” is discussed and the duo reveals whether or not they are superstitious.

They then end the chat with a look at a Cheez-It Rest Stop in California and Michael Nortman’s ride across the state to feed the hungry.
