ZBT #246: Coronavirus + Integrity Violators
WANNA start off by saying with the corona virus. Scared this going on. It's incredibly exciting. To even though it scary your I wake up every day and I'm like what's going on. What did I miss the seven hours that I was asleep now? Basketball's cancelled our pets head to toe. Pretty good about that joke. That's that now our instagram and I said I got to get on the pot and I'm GonNa say it on Radio Again Tonight Martha several times because with this news. I mean it really does whenever somebody like Tom. Hanks gets it. You're like Oh shit because Tom Hanks for all. Intents and purposes is viewed as invincible. He he's like the best. We have to offer us a society so he shouldn't be the one that's getting this notice that neither human mentioned Rita Wilson and you know what regardless of gender. Let's just be honest. Rita Wilson is not on the same level as Tom. Hanks wow yeah I would agree with that celebrity style and everything but I also Wanna point out to the fact I disagree with. Conti is not the best that we have to offer that would be our troops con-. Yeah Wow wow my bad bad troops just a little bit because the troops are affected by corona virus too. I think whenever you have something like this and it shuts down a multibillion dollar industry like the NBA or the NCAA tournament. That might happen is well. You're like Holy Shit. That's when you know something serious I mean think about it. They cancelled for the entire season. They're pushing it back after nine. Eleven baseball only cancel for like three days three days a week. Something like Tin Foil. Hattie on anybody but I'm putting my tinfoil hat on. I feel like there's something going on. They're not telling us to cancel. And all this shit. I don't know man I think well I think we're like brisk mitigation they just have and once you see one large organization or one large institution. Say All right. We're stepping away from this. And we have to shutdown. Everyone is almost their hand is forced tiny aliens. Okay I don't know alias. But the BA- report. That came down from the doctor that went and briefed the Senate committee and said that it's possible that seventy million to a hundred and fifty million Americans will get the corona virus by two all when it's all said and done is crazy that the fact that the German Chancellor Angela Merkel's said that they think that nine out of ten people in Germany will end up having it at some point even if the current death rate which is inside the United States. Is that four percent. If you're at one hundred and fifty million you might have multiple millions of people who die from what you might also not. It might not. I think that's The dude there's a guy on the NFL network. There was talking about Corona virus tough guy. That's yukons tie. I'm trying to be no no. It's not hard. I'm just trying to be optimistic about the whole thing. I think you have to brief everyone on worst case scenario. And that's what's going on right now and everyone needs to act. Accordingly be smart. Wash the hands hand sanitizer. I'm would large groups do all on Clay Travis? Yesterday was agreed. Yeah it was just an interesting stat. Whatever whatever I think chaps. You're just a little mad because we put out a poll on yesterday. Most likely to get corona virus japs Kate Cons and of course Navy Coast Guard. And I think you thought the results were going to be a little different. When in fact they are pre honest. If you ask me forty eight percent for chaps twenty percent for cates and only ten percent of people think I'm going to get it and I would argue. Those ten percent of people are just ten percent of people. They don't actually like me. They don't think actually going to get it hoping I get it. They don't actually think I most likely to get it. It's been having a big effect on the military to coming to us from the New York Times at the Pentagon. They're trying to figure out how to deal with this for our national security at this disease or virus or whatever has become a national security problem. The army recently suspended deployments for troops and their families into South Korea and Italy but deployments for Marines Air Force and navy personnel continued through Wednesday. But that could change. Also military partners in South Korea and Europe have cancelled planned exercises in the Arctic the Middle East and South Korea and the US have also. But I will say I mean. Is there any better? Feeling cancelling plans. I do it if you you're sitting there and you get not just training canceled but you get Arctic training. That is like buddy. You've won the fucking training lottery. Arctic training on I'll agree with Arctic training. That would be pretty awesome to have that cancel but I hate hate when plans are cancelled. I Love I love having plans. I love having things. Look forward to I love doing things I love being around people. You are Social Butterfly. Going into the field though. There's no better feeling now if I can. I know leterrier. Yeah back in the military and you're telling me field exercises are cancelled. Yeah sign me up for that. I'm talking about my own personal life like I was supposed to go to Madison Square Garden. Tonight for the Big East Tournament. Hadn't been in years. Yeah not allowed to Coachella or something like that and that's cancelled. You're disappointed there but if you're just going out to dinner like say whenever I come up to New York like and I'm supposed to go to a Broadway show people that I don't talk to every day I would be really excited desio but if I was back at my hotel after radio is over and I got a call from final Berg News. Like hey actually. I'm not going to go. I'm not feeling well I'd be stoked that I just got the deal to stay in my hotel be awesome. I have fire watched to give out today. Normally we stayed this at the beginning the end of the show but this is too important. Because there's certain things that I say that our little staff. Nco Azam's like one is safety. Paramount safety is paramount when there is a global pandemic probably more so than any other time. Except for whenever you have active shooters on a line I will say this rudy go. Bear is the starting center for the Utah Jazz. I've had interactions with Rudy Gobert. He actually said that he was going to give McCartney Defensive Player of the Year award whenever he saw McCartney's viral clip of playing basketball. But recently Rudy. Gobert was having the sniffles. He had a little bit of the signs and he thought it was really funny so he went out in a press. Conference started. Touching all the microphones after he coughed and coughed into his hands he touched all the microphones went into the locker. Room started messing with all the other guys stuff now. Three members of the Utah Jazz have corona virus. They've tested positive and the entire NBA shut down. Because he was touching basketball's he was interacting with arrests and that could just cause a wildfire so now the NBA is completely shut down. And I think it's because Rudy Gobert had a little bit ignorance a little bit hubris. And because he did that I want him to read nothing but handwashing techniques and he has plenty of time to do that because Rudy Gobert until the NBA resumes. I'm going to sign him. Fire Watch every single night from twenty hundred all the way until zero three because he has nothing to do the next day because career is cancelled for the moment rudy go bare. You've got fire. Watch BITCH ONE THING. I will say about the NBA in particular. That was kind of sad to see. Was what Vince Carter said. If this is the way his career ends that what a disappointment that would be if this is how. It all like a very luxurious career and for him to end this way really not on his terms. It would just be a bummer for for those of us who grew up watching any came in and over time they were down by six and came in and nailed his last three point shot. You can't I don't think he just leave. Vince Carter on the bench for that moment. I hate seeing legends like that reduce your the twelfth man and you're kind of like the manager at Rutgers who gets his last game in a blow out you get to come in. That's shouldn't be how Vince Carter's career in now. But I think ultimately will just remember Vince. Carter for all the great highlights in all the great moments and things like what happened last night. We'll kind of just fall by the wayside since Carter's great moment is an American uniform. What he's dunking over the 7-foot-4 guy by completely hurdle them that was probably the best endgame dunk of all time. Possibly I know too much about sports am to engaged in it to contribute to this conversation because I wanna make you guys. Why appreciate your honesty and I appreciate your concern? We're going to take back and then we're GONNA move it into round number two all right round number two involves a little. Gi Bill Talk. It was one of the best things that the military gave to me was the GI bill. I was able to. I dropped out of college with the one point eight. Gpa in communications. I was Absolute Moron. And Somehow through the grace of God I was able to go to Fordham University full pay which Gi bill paid for it and they were yellow ribbon school and it was because they knew that even if I sucked classes the government was going to pay them or what cause otherwise. You're not getting into forum with an automatic paycheck for any university which Fordham was great about it. They still. They didn't just okay. We got our money Castro to the side. They had special programs for veterans they. I had a mentor there. Who took me under her wing and showed me the ropes and really made sure I was successful there and graduating with a three point nine people. I want to interrupt because you're Katie dumb brains. It's because you were Katie rugby and getting your drink. Katie Katie Parties Katie Kenny. Jungle Juice Lincoln Center Rose Hill but I had a couple of classes but anyways that opportunity before we go on I wanNA say to all the people who have done a little bit of knows beers and want to go to the military that is a perfect example of the moment of truth. That bootcamp does not apply like you. Just gotTa Khuda Yourself. There is no way they have evidence that you ever did cocaine. Yeah Right. My recruiter said money. Keep that to yourself. You GonNa once right. That's the deal anyways. Yeah but really at Fordham starting to go there and the opportunities that game it turned my whole life around so very grateful to Gi bill but not every university is like for them. Not Every University has your best interest at heart even though you're an automatic paycheck if you're veteran going there and there's a lot of schools that you hear about that R..
