A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 07/31/23
"Well, we missed each other for a couple of days. I feel like I haven't talked to you in a month. I know, it's been a while. I mean, you had your dental surgery. And by the way, memo to self, because I got some coming up too. Do it on Friday afternoon. Yeah, no. You can't do it on a weekday and then think you're going to be able to bounce back the next morning. That was, silly me, that's what I thought, a Mr. Work ethic. I got my quote given back to me on the Patriot mobile text line. Didn't you say to Mike, I don't need no stinking day off? I think I did. And as it turned out, it was, yeah, so. You feel better though? Absolutely tremendous. I remain fascinated. I'm fascinated by anesthesia. I'm absolutely fascinated by it. They said they put the IV in me. Said, time to go night night. Fantastic. Boom, woke up. What was that? It's the craziest, craziest thing in the world. But all good, down one tooth implant to come. All is well. How was your Friday, South Carolina visit to celebrate the life of your former junior? That's right. I got to catch up with, of course, Peg and Joey and celebrated the life of the guy who gave me really essentially my first radio gig in 1989. So you think about that. I mean, we go back quite a ways. Well, first, big time. You were doing talk shows when you were 12, weren't you? Well, 1978 in Ohio, but then really I got started in South Carolina in 89 and Jim Burnside was the guy that hired me and he passed away. Really, really brief battle with cancer. He didn't realize he had cancer until like mid -June. He had some pain in his chest area, went off to the doctor and they said, whoops, we found spots. Which, of course, is why the message you have every day about those body scans. Early detection. So important. Early detection. I'm about to embark in the same kind of campaign that you've got in North Texas with an early detection body scan company here in the Tampa Bay area. Anyway, it was about a month. And you know, there's a blessing to that. He was 80 years old and it turned out he had a lot of cancer and he had pretty considerable pain, sadly, in the last few days. There is a blessing, I think, when you're at a point where you have a lot of cancer in your body, that can go for months and months and months. And I've seen people who have, thankfully, thank God, the people in my life, Denise didn't have a lot of pain. She didn't wither away or anything. But a lot of people lose tons of weight. They're in agonizing pain. It goes on for many, many months. And Jim didn't want that. He told his family and his friends, listen, I don't want to linger for a long, long time. So he's 80, gets the diagnosis. Did they offer him a long regimen of chemo? I know that he said, look, I'm 80. I'm not going to do that. No, they did. He was ready. They started with chemo. They said, listen, we've got new kinds of chemo, radiation. But then it was really too late. And within about two weeks, they were putting him into hospice. And so it was quick. It was about a month, month and a half from the diagnosis. And you know, look at Denise, it was a year, you know. And so sometimes it happens faster than others. And there are also amazing treatments. And for people who are in the battle, don't lose hope. Keep the faith. There's lots of innovative treatments they're using.
Fresh update on "1978" discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"Well, that's a badge of honor. So who's had more wives, Newt Gingrich or Donald Trump? I always get them mixed up on that. I think they're even at 3-3. I think they are even at 3-3. Even at 3-3. Well, what I find fascinating about the McCarthy-Gates battle is that if you try to follow it, which for a lot of us is difficult, McCarthy really does come across like a swamp monster. In other words, he comes across like a political player who, I mean, he's been praised recently by the Democrats. How is it possible that somebody who's supposed to be the Speaker of the House, controlled by the Republicans, would think that's a good thing? Well, unfortunately, he probably has to go over to the Democratic caucus in order to survive. He also needs to go to the Democratic caucus to pass their uni-party agenda. The thing I find most interesting about him is that he is such a hothead. In other words, never let them see you sweat, no matter how much you are sweating. He flies off the handle. He's very combative. You need to be able to appear that none of this affects you. And you need to appear, at least in public, as if you are in command, at a minimum, in command of your own emotions. Gates is very, very skilled on his feet. I saw an interview with Maria Bartiromo, who is no slouch. That was an amazing interview, by the way. I saw that, too. Yeah, it was. I mean, she was carrying the McCarthy position. And Gates decimated her, but he did so with a smile. It was a masterclass in how to handle, in this case, hostile media. Well, not only did he get the better of Maria Bartiromo, but she afterward conceded that he had and that she had a different view of things because of her interview with Matt Gaetz, which I thought was extraordinary. You rarely hear people take that position. I mean, in her defense, to some extent, she has been a pro-Trump. I mean, she really has been one of the few, as far as I can tell, who seems to be clear-eyed. But the fact that Gaetz, in that interview, really, as you say, with a smile on his face, explained things to her that she didn't know and to the rest of us that we didn't know. What do you think is going to happen, Roger, before we move on to other subjects? In other words, where are things now with McCarthy? What would happen if Gaetz succeeded somehow in ousting McCarthy? Chaos, because the House needs to find a speaker, which means someone has to amass 218 votes to become speaker. McCarthy is not above going over to the Democrats and giving away a huge swaths of both power and influence to retain power. In these most recent Republican primaries in the last cycle, I saw him systematically undermine a number of very solid America first candidates whose allegiance was to President Trump, putting before them allegiance to Speaker McCarthy. It's why you have congressmen like Chris Smith of New Jersey, for example, a guy who forgot why he went to Washington, but who's been there since 1978. I remember, I remember that year I ran cross country. OK, we're going to be right back talking to Roger Stone. And I agree with them. And the doctors who formulated relief factor for them selected the four best ingredients. Yes, 100 percent drug free ingredients. And each one of them helps your body deal with inflammation.

Key Takeaways From Reading 49-Page Trump Indictment
"Administrative case or worse the civil case the original US attorney and now the special counsel were able to trigger the usual tools and mechanisms that prosecutors use when they're targeting somebody they bring in scores and scores of witnesses they gather as much documentary information as they can they see if there's any conflicts any disagreements they push witnesses on memories they push witnesses to testify they threaten witnesses with jail time they're in front of a grand jury where witnesses have no lawyers they can't provide exculpatory information they can't record the proceedings they can't provide a rebuttal they can provide nothing jury here jury typically depending has 23 grand jury grand jury 23 members it takes his simple majority to bring an indictment 12 and if your grand jury has 17 members that's permitted takes nine that's how you bring indictments and in the District of Columbia or in Miami or New York when you're talking Trump it's not that tough it's not that tough the relevant statue here is the Presidential Records Act passed in 1978 after Nixon left office
Newt Gingrich: Previewing New Book 'March to the Majority'
"As a playbook, because March of the Majority lays out how we negotiated with Bill Clinton and aroused public opinion, so that we got welfare reform, the largest single conservative reform in our lifetime. We have the largest capital gains tax cut in history, launching an entire extraordinary period of entrepreneurial growth. We cut regulations dramatically, helping small businesses, and we balanced the federal budget for four consecutive years for the only time in your lifetime. So there are a lot of lessons, we didn't do this because we were lucky, we did it because we worked very hard. We learned over 16 a year period, from 1978 to 1994, what worked and what didn't work. And in March, the majority, I'm giving people a chance to learn, in a free society, The what principles are the that work, how do you put together a majority, and then how do you use that majority to get the policy changes you want. That's why I think March the majority is very relevant for today, it's a history book. And do you get the sense that the Republicans in the House, McCarthy and others, are following the game plan pretty much? Well, I certainly think in the negotiations with Biden on debt the ceiling, there's no question that McCarthy outmaneuvered Biden dramatically. Biden thought he was going to get a debt ceiling with no cuts, no reforms. And it turned out that only only one out of every four Americans favored that. One of the projects I work on is called the America's New Majority the next day. and people can see it at americasnewmajorityproject .com. It was clear that only one out of every four Americans favored Biden's new majority.

"1978" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"On the WBC central show on the baseball isn't boring podcast, as well as on his YouTube channel and on Twitter at Sean Bradley. And his enthusiasm for the tournament is infectious. So we wanted to have him on. So we could spread it to us and our audience, hello Sean. Hey, how's it going? Thank you so much for having me on Ben. This is awesome. Like you said, if there is baseball anywhere around the world, I'm probably interested in it. So now there's about to be baseball in a lot of places around the world. So this is fun. How did you catch the WBC bug yourself? What got you into it to the degree that you are and maybe your answer will also explain why everyone else should be paying close attention to the tournament over the next couple of weeks. Yeah, I think it's kind of two things and so kind of got thrown into this out of nowhere last fall when I did sort of become a reporter like an independent reporter for the WBC didn't really expect that. And so I had to think like, how did I even get into this? The two things that I've kind of, I guess, come up with as to the reasons why I got it all wrapped up in the WEC is one, the 2017 WBC, I was able to watch. And it was a blast. I loved every game that I got to watch, seeing Team USA win was also huge, not only for the WBC, but for baseball and international baseball around the world, seeing that, oh, USA actually is taking this seriously for once. And I didn't get to watch the previous WBC's house too young for the first couple and then 2013, I was in high school. I didn't really get to watch it. That's kind of the first reason I just saw that it was so much fun last time and so coming around when it was announced last summer that it would be happening in 2023. It just got me all excited again. The second reason ironically enough wasn't even baseball. So my wife and her family are from Brazil. And in 2018, I was able to go down to visit her family during the summer of 2018, which is was during the World Cup. It wasn't in Brazil, it was in Russia that year. But at the same time, there were watch parties every single day and getting to just experience and see what the World Cup looked like in a soccer country or a football country was honestly just eye opening to me. I did not grow up with soccer whatsoever, but seeing the entire country shut down for a month and like the economy take a hit for that month was pretty wild and it was just so cool to see all of the fans and then but also the players that played with the passion and intensity and aggression and love for their country and their brothers. Something that I hadn't really seen in baseball other than a glimpse of that in the world baseball classic. So after that, it kind of sparked something in my mind. I was like, oh, well, I wonder, I wonder if there's a way that we could do something like that in baseball. Obviously, the WBC is not even as close to as big as the World Cup. It's never going to be because it's baseball is not the same as soccer. But it's the closest thing that we have right now to that. To being able to represent your country and show that passion and energy and respect and honor that comes from representing your country and your people. Yeah. So that's kind of how I got all wrapped up in it. Yeah. Well, you're getting me more excited by the second here. This is great. So since it's been a while, 2017, as you said, they were supposed to be a WBC in 2021, then the pandemic happened is supposed to be in every four years event, and we've had to wait a couple extra years here. So since it's been so long, can you give us a little primer and refresher for everyone who didn't pay attention last time or just doesn't remember all the details just where it's being played, how you can watch it, what the format is, how many countries are in it, anything relevant that someone who knows nothing about the WBC or only a very little should know going into this. Yeah, absolutely. Yeah, we can just do kind of an overview and we can dive into whatever you want to on it. So the world baseball classic is essentially the FIFA World Cup, but baseball. So you have every country that is participating in the WBC. It is their national team. So Team USA, this is our country's team. You have to be eligible for that country, whether you're born there, or you have heritage through that country, the eligibility rules are a little bit spotty for some fans that haven't looked into it. But essentially, if you are eligible for citizenship or a passport in that country, then you are eligible to play for their national team in the WBC. So in the classic, there's 20 teams, it was expanded from 2017 to 20 23 from 16 to 20 teams. So now we have 20 national teams. Covering almost every continent at this point. South Africa was in the qualifiers, but didn't make it so Africa is not represented in this WBC, but they have a chance to in the next one and have in the past. So it really is a world tournament. You have the best of the best for almost every single country planning. USA may be a little bit of an exception on the pitching staff, but every other subcategory of roster in the WBC is the best of the best for all of the countries. So it's a ton of fun, like I mentioned, you're going to see players with completely different personalities than you're used to seeing. For example, and we can go into this later if you'd like. But ichiro, when he was able to represent his country and be the captain of Japan in 2006 and 2009, we were kind of used to seeing him be, I don't know. He doesn't speak. He didn't speak English at the time here in MLB. So we didn't see much personality from him compared to a lot of other players, but then when he went over there, he was aggressive. And he was loud and yelling and just showing all of the intensity that we want to see from a player like him of that high of caliber and status. So you're going to see a lot of guys like that that once they have that country and that flag on their Jersey on their chest, it's going to be a whole different ball game. So it's a lot of fun. You mentioned how Team USA is pitching is sort of at least compared to the lineup that they're able to put out there. I don't want to say meager because I would never insult lancelin or Adam Wainwright that way. But it's not, as you mentioned, the best of the best as we go into this, who do you view as the favorites to emerge from each pool? Yeah, and I think that the pitching for Team USA, like I said, is the kind of the one group of player that is holding the WBC back from being the true world baseball baseball World Cup because, like you said, we have Lance lane, Adam Wainwright, Brady singer, miles Michaelis, Merrill Kelly, so a lot of very well-known players in MLB, but when you don't have guys like degrom, Verlander Scherzer, the top American guys, people, feel like they're missing out. So that being said, I still do have the USA being, if not the best, at least in that top tier, did put out my power rankings today and they were number one. Shameless plug. But with all four pools in pool a, so every pool there's two teams that comes out of the pool from the pool stage into the quarterfinals. And pool a, I have Cuba and Kingdom of the Netherlands. That is a very, very close pool, though. It is very even. It's the most even of all four pools. The other three, there's some definitive top teams and then a lower tier with pool a, there's an easy case to be made for any of the 5 teams to make it out. Italy. Taiwan and Panama as well of those 5. So I have Cuba and Kingdom of the Netherlands, pool B is the exact opposite. It is the top two and then everybody else, there is Japan and Korea. One of them does not make it out of the pool. It's a huge disappointment for them because after them is Australia, Czech Republic and China. Pool C, I have USA in Mexico.

"The human brain and human emotions than almost anything else that happens in a baseball game because I completely understand Roger Clemens in that moment. I feel the fog. I feel the chaos. And I feel my body doing it, not knowing why, not having any intention, not having any goal and it just like coming out of my life. Yeah. And so I really do relate to that in a moment. Yeah, and he said it was out of control emotions. He also said he was unaware that Piazza was shocking down the first baseline and that he was attempting to sling it toward the on deck circle where the bat boys were. I had no idea Mike was running on the foul ball. There was no intent there. So he's just trying to chuck it off the field is, I guess, the best possible explanation for it. But even that just slinging around that shards, it's not something that pitchers typically do. Once my dad was slinging rocks, he was just, you know, throwing rocks out out into the great, you know, beyond. And he didn't let go of one and his arm came all the way around. And he hit my mom who was standing behind him. With a rock. And he said, I thought it was the ball. I had very, I had more restrictions on throwing things than the average person. Because of that, because of my mom's like, you just never know. All right, mine is, yeah, mine is, I was at the Kendrick's Morales. Grand Slam. Yep. And if people don't know this, because you know it's good because as soon as you said his name, I was like, oh. Yeah, yeah. So this happened now. You guys, 13 years ago. Stop it. Yeah. So Felix and Jared weaver, I don't like the two best pitchers in the AL at the time. Had this great duel and it was one one. It was super tense game, division rivals, Frankie Rodriguez came in for a tuning, hold the line appearance, I mean, an amazing game. Sunday afternoon game. And in the tenth, Kendrick's Morales hits a walk off Grand Slam off Brandon league, and it is the most, I mean, it's like the highest Pinnacle of baseball emotion and then he comes around to his teammates waiting for him at home plate and he jumps on home plate and breaks his leg and the leg slips. He breaks his leg, the teammates are still bopping him thinking this is part of the bit and it takes like, I don't know, I want to say it takes a minute before the crowd finally is like this is the celebration is going a little long. And you know, it was like the turnaround in emotions. I've never seen anything like it. I've never been involved in anything like it, and the fact that it all happened after the game was already over. So you're having like peak peak baseball emotion after you thought you'd already reached, you know, catharsis. And so yeah, that game I've never seen anything like it. That was it for me. Yeah. It's a good one. Never was the same. Guys are still getting hurt celebrating fairly routinely. David Robertson missing the NLDS last year after same sort of play. I mean, it was just a strained calf or something, but still. And they're still doing the arm bopping. No. Thing. Yeah. It's dangerous to celebrate. Like the bash brothers thing, is that what you mean? Yeah. Like the thing that caused Cody Bellinger's shoulder to dislocate and then maybe changed his entire career who could say, you know, like, I mean, it was sort of trending in a bad way before that, but it really took a sharp turn after that. Yeah, it's an argument in favor of not celebrating, not because you might show someone up, but because you might hurt yourself. All right. Okay, third question and I don't know. Maybe this is just as hard to come up with as the first one, but the supreme example of this from basically our own broader experience watching baseball. So anything that happened while we were watching ball. We didn't have to be there. You didn't have to be, I mean, I don't even care if you saw it happen if you saw it happen on Twitter, that's fine with me. But what is like the modern great moment? I have one that is, it is not unprecedented in baseball history, but it is a thing I wish I could have seen. And Sam, you may have seen one of these live. I wish that I could have seen a bonds for intentional walk game in person. Oh, yeah. 'cause I know that for at least I believe he has had he had two and in one of them, he did get an actual at bat, and then after that they were like, no. No, thank you. And then he was walked intentionally four times. So I would have I would like to have seen that. And then I have a niche or one, a more niche, what is the modifier there? I have a niche year. I've got a niche year one, which is that when the robo zone was being piloted in the Arizona fall league, two things happened with the robo zone that I think is just delightful. The first is that for all the flipped off the track man unit one point you just turned around and gave the bird to the box. Does that go anywhere? I mean, it might have hurt the computer's feelings. And then another player was ejected for arguing balls and strikes, and I'm not recalling his name. But, you know, they know. They know. In advance, that it is not the home plate ump, who is calling it, right? And at that time, I think they were really not doing much to give the umpires discretion to overrule the zone. You just got bounced from like a folly game and you know these are guys who they're trying to impress their organization or other scouts, some of them are fighting for 40 man spots. And so all the ways to potentially miss out on playing time to have fought with a computer and then lost. That feels, that feels like it would be bad, but I wasn't there for either of them. So those are some of my it's a good one. Yeah. The one I thought of was this hardly narrows it down, but ALDS game 5, 2015. This whole I swear to you when I was gonna admit this entire conversation was just I wanted to see if everybody would say the same play. And then all of this was a big long distraction because I didn't want to put three. Yes. I love the bat. That was the best, I think. It was kind of the capper to that inning.

"Didn't, I should say he didn't step off. He mostly fell. He fell. What did he do? He exclaimed off. He just all of a sudden just jerks. Yeah. He just sprung up. Like, what happened? I think, and now I'm gonna watch it again, Ben, should I send this to you so you know what the hell are you even talking about? I'm just enjoying picturing it based on your district doing a really great job of describing it. I mean, I'm not imagine a guy imagine that the base instead of a base was like a soda can. And his left foot is on the soda can. And then someone like basically just imagine that the soda can like crumples and he just violently falls over. That's what happens. He just all of a sudden just violently falls over. I think a little bit of this is on the third base coach. I think that the third base coach put his hand on Ezekiel Carrera in a way that made him sprawling. You know, he was just like, I love the other base runner looking at him. What did you just do that for? It seems like they changed the settings on gravity. Yeah. But only for him. Only for him. What do I go? I'm watching it again. Terrific. Such great stuff. Should I go? Yeah. Yeah, I'm gonna keep watching this though, 'cause it's so cool. So this one was tough I was saying to bed because all the games I've been through just plenty together basically into one big massive baseball game, except for some big playoff games, so that was what I tended to focus on because I remember who I went with to a game and maybe what we said, but I don't really remember what was happening at the game. I remember going to a game with you and I remember what you said. You said nothing. You said nothing. And an entire baseball game without saying one thing to me. And yet I don't remember a thing from that baseball game, even though I was apparently paying attention. So it doesn't stick like I remember, I probably have mentioned this, but I remember a game like 20 years ago where raul Monday was playing right field for the Yankees and I was sitting near another fan who was just very softly cheering for rael mondesi in this monotone very reserved, but somehow intense voice and the friend I was with. We thought it was so funny that this guy was cheering for rahm on to see sort of intensely but also almost under his breath as if he was afraid that someone might hear him like Monday might hear him or someone might hear him rooting for raul mondesi, so for a long time afterward we would greet each other just with a somber raul when we would see each other. But I couldn't tell you a thing about which game that was or what happened did it. Anyway, that's why I kind of defaulted to famous games and because I grew up as a Yankees fan when they played in a lot of famous games. I got to go to some of those. So the first one I was thinking of, I don't really think this fits the description. It might, but I was at 2000 four ALCS game 7, which is the first time that a team came back all the way from three zero down to win a best of 7 series, famously. But I don't know if that counts because it depends on the proceeding 6 games, right? I mean, it wouldn't be special anything that happened in that single game, if not for the Red Sox being down three, nothing in the series, and then sweeping the next three, and then winning that one. So I don't know if that fit the spirit of the exercise. So the one that I think did is that I was at the Roger Clemens throwing the bat at Mike Piazza. That's amazing. That's a good one, right? Because I don't know if anyone's ever seen that before. Everything has happened at some point, right? But I don't know if that has happened. In fact, Lenny Harris said, I've never seen anything like that after that game, and he'd seen a lot of games, right? So I think that was amazing in the moment. I think I was bewildered when it happened. I just, I remember just being flummoxed about what had happened and what everyone was so mad about because it was just so outside the realm of anyone's experience that you couldn't really make sense of it immediately. And I don't know that I have made sense of it 20 however many years, 23 years later, almost. So when you go back and you watch the replays and you hear the quotes, none of it makes it make any more sense than it did, like when roger cut it to clearly on the replay shouting at Mike Piazza, I thought it was the ball as if that would explain like, oh, well, if you thought it was the ball, then it would be fine if you were throwing it at me. That's totally understood. That was the best he could come up with in the moment, right? And then I think afterward he sort of said, he was just, you know, his feet were off the ground. It was so intense it was the World Series and he's the rocket and his faculties deserted him for a second, basically, but just all the quotes are funny. Like Piazza said, I walked out to the man to see what his problem was. He really had no response. It was bizarre. Just no one understood. And then Joe Torrey got kind of fed up because everyone kept asking him what was happening there and Tori was like, why would he throw at him? That's the question, Joe. That's what everyone is wondering. So he could get thrown out of the game in the second game of the world series. Does that make sense to anybody? No, no, it doesn't. That's why we're all asking you why he did that. Because he's angry? Yeah, probably, right? That seems like the most likely explanation. Angry with Piazza so he screws 24 other people at his team? Yeah, that's certainly seems like it's what happened. So just every explanation of it somehow made it more entertaining, I think. So that was great. That is a good one. And you're right that there is no explanation that makes any sense, and yet in its way seems like it tells us more about
"1978" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"I mean, I guess technically you could survive that. But maybe sounds better when you say a pitcher was struck by lightning than the fields close by the pitcher was struck by lightning. But of course, the kicker to the story is that he kept pitching, right? And he was one out away from finishing a complete game. And then he got struck again. I mean, there are a lot of fun aspects to the story. It wasn't fun for him, particularly, but Pete got a good story out of it. I mean, one thing, this is in 1919 that this happened. And he was pitching his first game for Cleveland against the athletics and he was having a good game and then lightning struck and when you think of like potentially fatal events on baseball fields involving players named ray right around 1920 or so you probably think of ray Chapman and Rachel was on the field. He was playing shortstop when ray Caldwell got hit by the lightning and ray Chapman. He just the current convulsed one of his legs and his leg was numb and various other players on the field suffered some sort of side effect here, but Caldwell was apparently not knocked unconscious. Sometimes you see that he was unconscious, but according to the contemporary accounts, it sounds like he was just sort of stunned and laid out for a while and then he had a burn on his chest or he said he did, but he never actually lost consciousness and then he just he wanted to finish the game. He said it felt just like somebody came up with a board and hit me on top of the head and knocked me down and he got the last out. And I guess the other fun after math of the story is that probably not a correlation here causation relationship, but he pitched really well for a while after this. After the lightning strike, he went four and one with a one 84 ERA in 44 innings and he threw a no hitter. The only no hitter that he threw. And people joked about how it was going to be like the new thing to train pitchers by just jolting them with lightning like some sort of electroshock therapy. And then like even the rest of the season and then like the following season, I guess he pitched well that year too and then he was someone who always had great talent but was kind of a trouser and there's a quote for Miller huggins about him that if he had possessed a sense of responsibility and balance, ray Caldwell would have gone down in history as one of the greatest of all pitchers, which is like great combination of extremely harsh insult and compliment about his talent. But he kind of relapsed and went back to his old ways for a while. But eventually he reformed and became a family man and it had a happy ending with a happy long life apparently. So yeah, I think that's a good one. Yeah. You know, like if it were some other weather equivalent, it wouldn't be even if it had only happened once it wouldn't be as lightning striking, like rhetorically speaking. It's the perfect one. I actually had been thinking a little bit about, well, thinking about this, I was thinking about like your favorite thing in modern baseball is the baseball reaction videos, lightning reaction videos. You know, when ball players get scared by get scared by lightning and I didn't think that there was maybe one, I mean, obviously I've seen multiple. So it can't be that, but those to me are like, if you go to the ballpark and you get to see baseball players react to lightning in a way that's a good turnout. Yeah. And there have been tragic incidents of not in the majors, but non major leaguers have been killed by lightning strikes on baseball fields, so that's not fun, but the rate Caldwell story is kind of fun because it wasn't tragic. Pretty good. That was mine. All right. Mine is mine is tippy Martinez picking off three base runners in one inning. Yeah. To me. Anytime you max out the possibility, like you can't pick off more than three. And so picking off all three is great. It will never be topped, but also pick offs are just really when you think about it. They're so rare. The math on that has got to be outrageous. The players weren't even trying to steal and he could just get all three of them. That's crazy. I mean, I would lose my mind. I would lose my mind. If I were there. And I would really lose my mind if I were the third base runner. Who got picked up. And I was trying to think of whether anything could top that to me. And I mean, really, I think the only thing might be if you had three runners get hidden ball tricked in an index. Yeah. Yeah, 'cause it's like they always say when hitters make two outs on the first two pitches of the inning and then the cliche is always where you got to take the next pitch, right? But you'd think that if the first two base runners got picked off before you, the same rule would apply, which is you can't take a lead in this situation. So it should get progressively more difficult with each pick off you would think. Okay. All right, Meg, just curious, did you feel like that was one of your stronger or one of your weaker weakest? Okay, good. So you're all you're confident now. Well, I wouldn't say that, but I'm probably gonna make fewer squeaking sounds. Okay. All right. All right, so the second question is, what is the supreme example of this from your own personal experience? You literally had to be at the ballpark for this to count. Do you have one of these in your own life? Yes. All right. What is it? So I have seen a triple play in person, and I had never. It was the very first time. I had ever I had never seen it before, and then I did. I saw the Mariners do it. I think that they did it on July 26th, 2015, it was not the only Mariner ship will play everybody is the only one I've seen. And they turned it. They didn't hit it, but they turned it. Yeah. Yeah. And it was one of those triple plays where it is the result of the catcher in this case, it was magazine just like tagging two runners on the same bag over and over until one of them fell off. Oh, nice. And it was great. They were playing the Blue Jays, Taiwan walker was pitching. I'm watching it again, and I'm like, this is still really fun. You know, like some guys in our rundown, all they're gonna get one at home and, you know, I just love that these guys practice. They practice so much, right? A professional baseball player over the course of your life, you've practiced and practiced and practiced and practiced and practiced. And the guidance that you are given as a catcher is like, they're gonna forget. They're gonna forget all of their practice and you're gonna get one of them to step off and be out. And that's what that's what happened here. You go back and forth and back and forth and back and forth. And then on the broadcast, I think my flowers is like, yeah, that's what they tell you to do. And it worked. And it was great. And help me just envision the last phase of this. How much time elapsed between out number two and out number three. Like, gosh. 20 seconds? Oh, that must have been so fun. Maybe? Maybe. We know that two to chase a triple play for 20 seconds. 20 might see now I'm trying to watch again and this is terrific radio. Everybody really loves it when you're like sitting there watching a play. Kyle, so you're just like, come back, come back. And then there are two of them. Eyes off. And then that's it. I'm Taiwan walker goes, yeah, and he does like the satisfied picture clap. Yeah. And you're like, that is a very confident clap for a weird ass play that we all just watch. And I remember everyone in the ballpark being just happened.
"1978" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"All right. I'll bet real money that a certain strikeout by Jimmy Ryan never had a parallel where Ryan, batting with two strikes on him, and a man on first base swung in the air and walked away as the pitcher wheeled and through to first. So he struck out on a pick off attempt. Ah. Huh. That sounds unlikely. If that happens, that would be worth noting in this column. Yeah. That's my favorite of these. And I do not believe it happened. No. Not only, I mean, there's this sort of a paradox here because like a lot of things that you've never seen before. Well, they're really unlikely and maybe they maybe the circumstances that would make them possible. Don't always conspire to make it possible. Whereas in this case, we have all collectively seen tens of millions of pitches into a batter with a runner on first and like hundreds of thousands of pick off attempts and not one other person has done this thing that it becomes inconceivable to imagine that like one guy and one guy only did it. The fact that you've never seen it before seems to suggest that it's probably impossible. Yes. All right, double play on a guy stealing home, strikeout, tagged at home, that seems like it happened. And with that excited. And cap Anson swinging at an intentional ball and hitting a triple. We've seen that happen. Yeah. So that's it. That's it. I really appreciate that William phalan, perhaps coined this concept that I that I do like a lot or sometimes I hate it. Sometimes I like it. But his calibration was off. Yeah. I feel like I truly feel like in one day I got better stuff than that. I guess it makes sense that there'd be some growing pains with this cliche that if he's the trailblazer, the pioneer, the originator of this thought, that there would be just subsequent people who came along and improved the concept. So someone has to go first and fail probably. Yeah, yeah. And I mean, not being able to see replays. Probably a lot of things at that time, if you, I mean, for one thing, like everything was kind of fuzzy as I remember it, dark the photos are always really blurry. But at that time, you might see something you've never seen before, and you couldn't hit ten seconds back. You could only go. Did I just see that? And then you doubt it. You might not. Yeah, be confident. And I sympathize because just to spoil what we're doing here, you asked us to try to come up with some personal examples and I struggled with this assignment. Yeah. You gave us some homework here and we found it hard. I don't think you thought it would be hard. I don't think you would intentionally gave us a homework that we found difficult, but we did for whatever reason. So I sympathize very much with him, especially with a few of the resources that we take for granted today. So yeah, it's true that on demand, look, if he had this on his tickler file for several years and these were the best notes that he could jot down, it's not that great. But if he had an article do today and you had to on demand come up with 17 examples of things that you've seen, that would be tough. You probably would not be that inspired. So yeah, so you alluded to the homework that I now we're going to talk a little bit about our own examples of these. So I had four questions here. And I'm going to ask each of these of all of us. You said that you and me struggled, did you make us already signed deeply? Do you have answers? I think I have answers for some of them. Wow. There's only four. No. I think I could give you answers. I don't know if they're exactly what you're looking for, but we'll try it. Okay. The first question is, what is the supreme example in baseball history of this of going to the ballpark and seeing something you've never seen before? So we don't have to be there. We didn't have to be alive. But of all the things that have happened, what is the best example of this? Right, and we should stipulate because obviously the cliche that you see something new every time, it's obviously technically true every time, but the cliche, I think, presupposes that this is something you notice and you say, wow, I never saw this before because as you said with the pitching lines or I think we've done a step blast in the past where we tried to look up like how close did two games ever get with the same sequence of events, right? And not very far at all, right? So every game is obviously unique and unique in many different dimensions. But we're talking about the famous ones here. So every possibility I came up with for this was like, I think a fairly obvious one, but I guess it should be, right? Because if this is the supreme example, then it probably shouldn't be. Well, just spit it out and we'll judge you. Can I go first? 'cause so worried. Wow. Okay, yeah. I don't actually know, I can't point you to the day the day. You know? I can't give you the exact day. But I would imagine if you were a spectator, the very first time in what was it 1884 that a pitcher started throwing overhand, you would go, what in the, what in the world is this business? Don't you think you would do that? Does this count? You could. I was playing, I just started playing pickleball, a couple days ago. How do you like pickleball Sam? And I'll tell you that off mic. And you have to serve underhand. And it took three serves before me and the guy I was playing with were like in heated dispute about whether he was a cheater. So that slow evolution from underhand to overhand. I think happens gradually. I think it's hard fought every step of the way. And so probably there were many days like that. Where people were yelling. That's too high. Right. Yeah, it became legal at a certain point, but it was legalized because everyone was already doing it. Yeah, and it was a period of decades where it was like you can't break your wrist. You can kind of curl your wrist a little like Jim creighton or whoever who is doing that, right? And then so yeah, I guess it would be hard to draw a bright line and say, this is the first overhand throw. I mean, if someone came along and it was obviously different than I guess before that was legalized, maybe it wouldn't have been legal to do that. You had to do it incrementally. But do you think they would have tried? Oh, they definitely tried, I think. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, I think it was kind of constant. I mean, in a way, the reverse, imagine the first, if you went out and saw your first submariner. Yeah. That's maybe better. See. But they were probably that also wouldn't have been quite striking enough because you probably would have seen side armors first and all that. But if the submarine disappeared for two generations and then unthought and came back, I think people would lose their mind. Yeah, I mean, the one that came to my mind, which I guess is a fairly obvious one. But if this is the supreme example, then maybe it's okay if it's obvious this is also a striking example because it is ray Caldwell getting struck by lightning as he was pitching. Which is, I think a good one now, as you always say, fun facts lie right off on facts light. Technically, I guess he was not probably actually struck by lightning lightning struck in his vicinity. I think he was actually superhuman. The lightning bolt struck the field, close by him, on that side of the field, and he was the closest to the epicenter of the strike and he was the most affected by it, but it was he's probably not actually immortal.
Lord Conrad Black Unpacks Jimmy Carter's Presidential Legacy
"Back with our regular guests, one of your favorite lord Conrad black a man who has written a veritable library of books, including works on FDR on Nixon on president Trump. As such, lord black, let me ask you, we have the news of just the last day or so that president Carter, age 98, I believe, has been admitted to hospice. He may not be long for this world as a presidential historian. How will the historians of the future look to his presidency? Look, I would always, I would almost like to be as positive, especially with a man who is now clearly in the extreme December of his days. And I think on the positive side, he did produce the Camp David agreement for which I thought he deserved the Nobel Peace Prize for that. I'm glad he got the Nobel Prize for peace eventually, but I thought he deserved it then. In 1978. But I think he I think he suffered from a form of indecision that compromised his. Effectiveness as a leader of the country. He tended this tendency to change direction. And we were going to deploy the neutron weapon and in Western Europe and then it was all agreed to. And then he changed his mind. And he was sending a strong naval squadron into the Indian Ocean and then it turned a 180°. We had an irrational fear of communism, and then after Afghanistan, he had learned a great deal, but communism. These are quotes. And when the energy crisis came upon us, he spoke of a malaise and appeared wearing a cardigan on television and advising people to turn the thermostats down. And he didn't I think he was a good man and a very intelligent man into this very slight degree I know. I know I'm a very interesting man and of course like all politicians are quite a charming person. But as a leader, I think he was not perceived as a strong leader and he was not particularly imaginative. He was studious and diligent and did his best and had his moments and was a good man. But I'm afraid he will not rank as an outstanding president. But
Getting Back to the Meaning of Antitrust Law With Robert Bork, Jr.
"Should averaging individuals be concerned about what they're seeing right now? Well, the origin of antitrust law and people ask me, why is it called antitrust law? It was the first pieces of it were written back in the late 19th century. To deal with the enormous size of corporations who were organized into trust like the Standard Oil trust and the railroad trusts, and so the law was antitrust. But the legacy of all of that has been up until about 19 80, 1978. Sorry, when my father wrote this book was that the big was bad, the Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis and justice William O Douglas ruled time after time that any company that was inefficient, the small was better and they had to protect small businesses and worthy men as they refer to it. And so what they ended up doing though was created this paradox, my father talked about in the book where they were actually protecting inefficient companies, which led to consumers paying higher prices led to less innovation, less job creation, and my father taught himself calculus and started writing about this in the 60s. And ultimately with this book in 1978, proved that the law wasn't working. Just simply was not leading to the results that benefited our society and not as he thought they had intended when the laws were written. So he referred to consumer welfare as the is really the goal of antitrust.
Doug Welcomes Robert Bork Jr, Head of the Antitrust Education Project
"My just joy today to have bob Morton junior owned. He has been a leader in this industry, not only following up on what his father, Robert bork had done, judge bork had done. But in his own right working with this today, bob, welcome to the podcast today. It's such a pleasure to finally be on, I'm sorry about the delays, but here we are. Yay. We made it. Well, to get everybody started off, tell us about where what you're doing now, your organization, and then we're just going to dive head deep into this stuff. The semi short version is that for a long time, I was a reporter and then got sick of that and decided to get a grown-up job. And worked in corporate communications and strategy, but most recently, and really this is a labor of love for my father. I saw in 2016 or so that Elizabeth Warren and others were having sort of their left wing Appalachian meeting to discuss how to hijack antitrust and turn it into a weapon against business, not just big business, all business. And my first thought was, well, I wonder where my dad's book is. And he had written a book called the antitrust paradox in 1978, but it was out of print. And you couldn't find it unless you wanted to spend three or $400 on an old copy. So I decided we needed to get the book back into print. And I asked Mike Lee, senator Mike Lee to write a new introduction. And I wrote a new forward and took some time, but we got it out. It's on Amazon and Barnes and noble. It's very readable.
How Democrats Have Responded to Other Attacks on the Capitol
"But I want to remind you as they talk about this today endlessly That there have been other attacks on the capitol building and what the Democrats did about it Our friends at American spectator wrote about this not too long ago And I've talked about it before in 1978 Jimmy Carter commuted the sentence of Andreas figueroa cordes a Puerto Rican communist Who participated in a shoot up of the well of the House of Representatives From the visitors galley He did it He said on humanitarian grounds given that the man's terminal cancer diagnosis the next year Carter took the unpardonable step of pardoning court as his three comrades In that 1954 action that wounded 5 congressmen they shot 5 congressmen From the gallery and Carter Carter pardoned the three that were still alive and commuted the sentence of the ringleader That's how much they care About protecting the capitol building on the last day of his presidency Bill Clinton granted a full pardon to Susan Rosenberg who was she 16 years into a 58 year sentence for possession of guns in over 700 pounds of explosives Did that happen on January 6th I remember the weather underground in numerous of its succeeding splinter groups Rosenberg allegedly participated in the 1983 bombing of the U.S. capitol as a member of something calling itself the armed resistance unit
How Does the DOJ Get Around the Presidential Records Act of 1978?
"I want to summarize for you what we discussed the other night How does the Department of Justice get around the presidential records act of 1978 As to true constitutional experts and appellate litigators David rivkin and Casey Lee excuse me Lee Casey wrote in The Wall Street Journal That grants a former president not only access to his administration's documents classified or not I underscore Classified or not but it provides him with special control over the documents We're even Congress or the current president or the current administration are limited to the axis of these documents except in extraordinary situations that are laid out in the statute And it doesn't say a single word about where the president can maintain these documents where they are to be possessed And he can essentially control these documents for several years After he leaves The White House And that requires the national archives to negotiate a date for them to be provided To the national archives but remember originally these documents belong to presidents all the way up to and through Jimmy Carter Richard Nixon sued in 1992 Nixon versus the United States And he demanded compensation for the records because Congress passed a law Basically aimed at him saying he had a return the records and even the court said well you do need to compensate him
CNN Reacts to the Collapse of Joe Biden
"And their total collapse, CNN is also reacting to the collapse of Joe Biden. There's just a lot of collapsing happening. Joe Biden just collapsed he can't even walk upstairs, just kind of that's a theme, I think, from now to November, collapse. Is this a great theme? Cut 98. They can't believe how unpopular Joe Biden is play cut 98. You know, there was always that thing. Oh, Donald Trump has the lowest approval rating at this point in his presidency. We did it over and over and over and over again. Well, at this point in his presidency, Donald Trump's number is actually his average approval rating is one point higher than Joe Biden's, which is a 41% Donald Trump at 42%. A first term president at this point in his presidency, this is the lowest. This is the lowest for anyone who is elected to the presidency and didn't get up there through the vice presidency. This is a really, really, really bad number. Was he elected to the presidency? That's the question. CNN continues cut 99. On Biden's approval rating, Joe Biden at this point is -23 points. That is the worst on record since they started asking about economic approval. Play cut 99. And I'll just note, if you don't believe that the economy is hurting the Democrats and Joe Biden, look at the net approval rating that's approval, minus disapproval, Joe Biden, at this point, -23 points. That is the worst on record since they started asking about economic job approval ratings back in 1978 with Jimmy Carter. I don't know who this guy is, but the funniest part of the clip I know in radio and podcasting you can't tell is he's trying to cut him off the other guy, the shell. He's like, enough, got it. Stop, stop. Who are you? Stop it. And he just keeps that going. You could just see he's

"So basically you're having a gravy salad. The plate is going to mix with just all three kinds of casseroles. Yeah. Somehow the salad at my house has mayonnaise in it. I don't know. I don't eat it, obviously, because it's fucking vegetables. But there's spice yeah. Yeah. Somehow there's Mayo and there's apples. And I heard both of those and I was like, no, thank you. What's in a Waldorf salad? Anybody know that? Is that like that's what it is? And oh, that's like a pink. Yeah, is that the ambrosia thing? Yeah. I'd go for that. Anyway, what are we drinking? Well, salad. And then we're doing the inmate Prosecco, little bubbly for after the meal. Or before with the nose. Yeah, you could do Moses? Makes excellent burps. Yeah. I feel Prosecco makes a really good mimosa in my opinion. But one of the best, that's an Italian bubbly. It's fun to say. Yeah. Yeah, the Prosecco would make an excellent after Thanksgiving dinner drink because that's when you need to burp. Yeah. And it works. That would be an excellent review for one spectator. It breaks off Taylor over here. That should have been recorded. Yes. Taylor had a burp that was absolutely. It was like a low E octave burp that drew it out for two whole notes. It was amazing. I dialed 9 one on my phone. And then I almost did almost hit the one because I was concerned about the birth. But it was good. And I would do it again. It was worth it. Yeah, you could have tuning fork and tune that to your boob. But a big tuner for it. Boom. See how the army Prosecco was the final thing we're doing? Yeah, it's a really good I think the classic like Thanksgiving pairing also. It's like you finish your meal. Something refreshing, a little bit of bubble to it. And it makes that sound. Prosecco tend to run on the brute or extra dry science that tend to be a little CRISPR and refreshing. So yeah, a Prosecco is an excellent choice. If you're looking for something for after the meal, no. And I don't know. I mean, obviously, Thanksgiving is an American thing. I don't know what people celebrate overseas, but, you know, has been Turkey and bubbly wherever you are. Do they have the Swiss army bird and other types? I don't know where they even have turkeys. And that might be an American thing too, you know? But, yeah, hopefully if you guys have access to the Swiss army bird, enjoy it. Yes. Get on it. Get it. Get you a Wang. Turkey wings are underappreciated. They're big. Yeah. I like, I like the way. Yeah, I know I agree. Yeah. And that's whether they have so much utility. I like the journals because they have all the penises and the Chinese. Are you saying what are you talking about? Are you saying you also you just eat a bag of jills that come out of the Turkey? Is that what you're doing? Someone needs to forward Travis with a gymnast. Why haven't we watched the scary movie with Chris Elliott where he stuffs the Turkey?.

He was like, that was like death. But it was like compelling and had a good speaking board. Most charismatic in the group. Yeah. He and that was a big complaint and a source of bitterness later was they felt that Scorsese and Robbie Robertson, the main he was the lead songwriter and lead guitarist. They felt that they edited the documentary to favor him. Oh yeah. And they totally do. Oh, yeah. Yeah, but at the same time, like half of the people in the band when they talk, you're just like, oh, this person is spaced. Yes. Wolfman damn. What's his name? Garth Hudson. Yeah. Yeah, the piano man. Oh, that's a Richard Manuel. Yeah. Yeah, the piano dude was on drugs. I mean, I think the whole entire time. Richard Manuel is the wolf guy you're thinking about. Hudson is the organist. So they have a piano player in an organist. Okay. Yeah. And they're both not okay. Bizarre looking. Yes. It was the 70s. Yeah. I know, right? So everything was just normal. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, that's how most rock man looked. Very homely. But yeah, that was a source of bitterness for them after the band broke up was they felt that it favored him. Robbie Robertson Scorsese became a really good friends after that. And Robbie Robson provided the music to a ton of Scorsese movies after that in the 80s and 90s. Kind of served as a musical director for a lot of Scorsese movies. So they became buddies and I think it made the other guys the man feel a short change in this documentary. So yeah, so basically that started out originally, Robbie Robertson wanted to disband the group. And end it. And so he goes to a guy named Bill Graham, who was this big rock manager who interesting the interestingly enough would later die in the same helicopter crash. It killed Steven Raymond. They were both at the same chopper. Shit. Yeah, in 1990. So they asked Bill grant organized this gig at the winterland ballroom, which is where they played their first gig as the band..

"I do want to mention the sheriff. His name the brackets. And that is the name of a famous science fiction writer and screenwriter. Lee is a woman who wrote the big sleep and rio bravo and the long goodbye at an early draft of empire strikes back as well as numerous science fiction novels and short stories. I feel like John carpenter must i think he must have chosen that name on purpose. There's no way john carpenter doesn't know hooley bracket is fair. This is a rather specific name. But i didn't notice any other names like that. Yeah i didn't. It's not like he named all of the minor characters after fiction writers we. It's like an inside thing between them. His favourite writer. I don't know either. I think something else about this movie. That is i. Guess something that makes it a classic that also like everybody knows but also made it super scary for me as a kid. Is the music like the high pitch squarely shit like that scared the crap out of me when i was younger like you just you know. John carpenter writes the scores for all of his movies. His eighties ones are all written on synthesizers. Duty to you. Yeah that you'll hear that kind of thing and some of his movies. Yeah i'll tell you what i hated about this movie. It's one thing that i really hated that. I'm glad didn't go into the next one was all of the like sounds like him like searching for Come on what is her name. I know her name is lori but her actual. Oh jamie lee curtis. Emily curtis thank you. Yeah You know like she just all of the like Sounds in between like i know. She's scared in the breathing in sub make sense. But i'm like stop. Stop doing that stuff like it. Felt like a note lake. Someone needs to Like a director's note like okay Hey jamie could you like less of the. Can we just have less of that. thank you. It's starting to just not be believable. But yet that was like one of the only things that i was just like. Oh god please stops keep. Please stop please stop that. This was Jamie lee curtis's first movie and lead. They're having a bit of a career as a scream queen including up to fairly recently when he was in the show screen queens. Oh i got to meet her once. She was signing one of her children's books. A bookstore in new york. I i do not remember which one it was. But it's around here somewhere. I what is the jamie lee. Curtis movie where she's like in her underwear for a scene and you get to see her legs from the ground up. Do you know what i'm talking about. Is it true lies. yes it is true lies will. That's my first. Jamie lee curtis memory. Okay is she does show boobs in trading places but not in any of these horror movies. They mentioned this scream. Somebody's talking about you. Know horror movies and gratuitous nudity and and jamie. Lee curtis said randy points out. No no we see doesn't show the goodies until trading places elia. That's everybody else has to take their the in the movie. Says she's in and she of course is the daughter of tony. Curtis and janet. Leigh janet lee is most well known for being in psycho so she was kind of following in her mother's footsteps by being in all of these slash. Tony curtis not in so many slasher. He's not in any that. I'm aware of and she is married to christopher guest. She is the lady haden guest. Christopher guest is a baron. Eighth baron of haden guest. Well yeah damn clean. And she says it's good for getting restaurant reservations and that's about it. I'm sorry he's only the fifth baron of haden guest Very cool so. I am not aware that they've ever been in anything together. Like they should have been nothing. Comes to mind so any other key thoughts on this movie. Now i mean it's i just feel like it. It is kinda slow but it. It's the it's a classic. I enjoy it. There's a lot of weird teenage sex. The music is good. It's still scary. yeah i think it's a it's just a just a classic in nothing. More is quite slow was getting a little frustrated with slow was it is slow i can. I can imagine that watching it like as an adult i. It not being as good as like for me. I watched i probably was lie. Man may be like eleven or something like that so it was like. Oh gosh like so. I watched it. It gave me nightmares. I never watched another halloween movie into the rob zombie movie. And i'd never wanted to. I didn't care. I was like uh no thank you and then when rob zombie made three make calls like okay but yeah so it was good revisiting it. I like it was slow. It just seems like there's a lot of time spent on the details of babysitting. Yeah yeah which. I mean makes sense because in seventy eight you know. Nineteen seventy eight. You babysat you didn't you. Didn't you know make millions of dollars on talk. You had to watch kids and chit well. I guess that's just about going to wrap it up. All this lift is to give it a rating pumpkins. he gonna give this movie. Give this movie three point six pumpkins. i'm gonna give it three pumpkins. which i believe is the number of pumpkins. That are in the movie because again. They were filming at halloween and they could find any pumpkins. It's just okay. i understand. It's important and is influential and all of the but to me is just okay. Yeah i would say like the three point six to three point eight just for the sense just for the simple fact that it's a classic and folks you could write to us about. How mad that makes you that. We only gave it three pumpkins and time go at gmail.com or leave us an angry voice message at anchor dot fm slash m. f. t. g. Goodbye for now.

"Cryer was in Superman for and was Lex Luthor's cousin or nephew. Yeah. Yeah. Anyway, the left said about three and four the better. Yeah, all you John cryer fans take note those are later later later broadcasts. Yes. Tell you what would you rate this movie? Scale of one to ten. Well, it's no con air, but for what it was and honestly, kind of like the star power behind it. And everything, I would easily a 7, maybe even like 7 and a half. For me. Yeah. I'm extremely biased. And I think it's damn near perfect movie. So I want to say 9. I'll give it an 8.5. In my heart, it's a 9, so fuck you. I'll give it a 7.5. Yeah. I think that's fair. I think it's really, really good. Definitely rewatchable. Yeah, I'm kind of a trap. I'm biased. You know, I love that as a kid wore out the VHS. Tape that I had. So 8.5 or 9 for me. It's a great movie. I loved it. It did notch below Star Wars for me. Is Superman two better or worse than one. It gets a little bit campy. You know, it gets a little bit over the top with, you know, it's like, I only answer to the president of the United States. You know, where zod rips off as stars off of the general shoulders. Yeah. It gets a little bit hokey, you know, with some of the tumor. You know, or was it the non, you know, it's like him trying to make the laser eyes look at the laser vision, stuff, but there's some quirky bit of humor in there that don't work. But I would say that's probably still a 7 5 or 8. Well, that's the first one where they had like kind of a superhero fight in a city and they tried to, you know, it's nothing by today's standards, but they try real hard. Yeah. But it's got some of the best lines stamp, and then it's got Superman they're at the daily planet and he flies up and he's like, excuse me, general would you like to step outside? I was like, why it's so fast. I had my Superman PJ's on. Logistical question can Superman shoot is laser eyes through lead to see what's on the other side. Yes. Oh, oh, the x-ray? Yeah. I mean, if he uses his laser eyes to kill the lead to burn a hole in the burn a hole in it and then see through it. Yeah, he can burn through. What is going to do that more? Yeah, that's a big flaw. Yeah. All right. Just for another. Does he have the ultimate power set for superhero? He has the quintessential power upset. He's super strong. He's invulnerable. He can fly. That's about it. He's damn near guy. Yeah. And then everything else is just extra. You can he's got the super breath, which is either a Gail full or force wind or freezing, and then he's got laser eyes, then he's got all the super senses..

"Yeah. She gave consent. You're right. It's important. Yeah. What do we think about? We were evaluated. Criteria was Superman. What about Margot Kidder as Lois lane? What do our thoughts? Was she in all of them? She was in the four original yeah. Yeah, I thought she did great. Yeah. And so she went back and watching it because it's like, they had better chemistry than any other Superman. Yes. Which is the key to everything. I mean, your movie is shot if Superman, Lois lane don't have that chemistry with each other. This movie does fail the bechdel test. But it's nice and 78. Yeah. And that's true in different time. This movie can only handle one strong woman. Yeah. But part two, you get another strong woman in ursa. Yeah, who is more than a match for Superman? Superman. Yeah, we quickly need to do a sermon to watch as well. You should not watch before this. Superman? Superman. Exactly. Plus Terence stamp as general zod has all the best fucking lines in that for. Every time I watch it again, I'm like, I hope he wins. Yeah. He just never died. He's great because he's such a Terrence Stamp at such a theatrical theatrically trained actor that he puts that sort of strong dramatic heft to it. And Michael Shannon played the same role in men of steel. He's a great fucking actor. I love Michael Shannon. I prefer my odds terrance damp. Yeah. And yeah, it turns Tampa is a Michael Sheen's obviously a bigger burlier looks like he could he's an imposing guy. Yeah, he looks more like who somebody who could hang with Superman in a fight. As opposed to Terrence Stamp, you know, but you see the video of Michael Shannon reading the sorority letter. Yes. It's outstanding. It's so great. Yeah. From the president of the house to her members. Yeah, it's strong. Even did a great job in Man of Steel, like his acting ability and his job. Just delightful. Yeah. But still, I prefer a hat here. Yeah. Yeah, a more aristocratic. Yeah. Shakespearean, odd. Yeah. Do you prefer zod versus Superman or con versus? What's his name? Shatner. Yeah, that's one. I'm gonna go zod Superman. Yeah. I think so too. Okay. Yeah, okay. I'm gonna stick to that. But yeah, these movies fell off after part two, part three was rough, rigid prior, isn't it? Yeah. And it had some random drinking in a bar. No. And getting pissed off and there was like an evil Superman. So he did the Spider-Man three dark suit Spider-Man. Actually, yeah. Yeah. That's a great way to put it. I really wanted him to do like bizarro Superman or like brainiac and some of the other movies, but instead, three, they had some crazy lady robot. And evil Superman and Richard Pryor. Apart forehead nuclear man. Nuclear man. Destroy, Superman. Yeah, that's right. So what Taylor, what would your rating on this movie? And John, nope, shit, not John Krasinski, who played Doug. Halpert? No. He played ducky in Superman's findings. He was. God, damn it. What was the Charlie Sheen TV show with his two and a half minutes? Two and a half men. John cryer..

"Yeah, exactly. They don't define them. They're like, yeah, you know, some of them, but he's forgotten more of what he can do than anybody else. Yeah. But Superman returns rehashed that same exact plot. About they're not making more land and it's all about Lex Luthor trying to do another land grab. But I do appreciate that this Lex Luthor named a piece of his new territory after his girlfriend's boobs. Great little Easter egg in there, if you look at the map, it's one of the little mountain ranges is two mountains. After his girlfriend's boobs test walker. Yeah. I appreciate the Superman saved her mom. Oh, yeah. That was sweet. He kept his words. True to his words. A good deal. Yeah. Yeah, all he had to do was not die. Yeah. No. Yeah. But yeah, I thought it was great. There are tons of great fun facts about this movie, just like trivia that goes back like Christopher Reeves gained so much muscle mass because he continued to work out from start to finish this movie that he's bigger at the end of the movie than he is at the beginning. And I think that reshoots. Because he'd gained so much muscle mass. Wow. And you can kind of see it in some of the scenes. It's like he's kind of scrawny at the beginning and you're like, oh, this is Superman. He's kind of unassuming, and then you get to the end. He's like, oh, that's Superman. Buff man. Yeah. He's a big fellow. We go back and look like the George Reeves from the 50s. It's like, don't look as much like Superman. I don't think at all. You know, they're a little bit doughier. Oh yeah. And then Christopher Reeve and he's like, like you say, at the end, it's like rip. He's beefy. Yeah, he's a big old guy. Michael Keaton like fake muscles. Muscle shirt. Yeah. Here's the thing. The Superman in 1978 is such a high standard and then it just drops off start for 30 years. It drops off to Batman. Adam West atom west Batman. Which was that about this before. But what was the next Superman movie or superhero movie after the Christopher Reeves, Superman? That's tough. Yeah. I know the Wonder Woman TV show was around the back end TV show. It was around before that. Yeah. I mean, it might have been Batman 89. Yeah. I can't think of anything. There might be other comic book characters that were like, Howard the duck. Yes, I thought about that. But that's not exactly one to one. Supergirl was out there somewhere. Yes. That is true. Super with Helen's later and Peter O'Toole. Yeah, Peter O'Toole is an aide Dunaway. Yeah. Yeah, she was the villain, right? Yeah, of course she was..

"To be slated for two. It was going to be a two part and then Richard donner got fired off halfway through of filming the second one. And I don't remember who picked up the slack, but to me. This is almost like kill Bill volume one and two. Superman one and two are essentially the same film or almost count the same. Because it seems to be like a kind of a godfather like an epic, those two films anyway. The other two were a little rough. But when you spend 40 minutes of origin story before you even get to him in the suit, it's like you leave a lot on address. Yeah. And I did I watched a interview with Christopher Reeve about how he wrote some of the dialog for Superman four. And it was about nuclear arms race and all this stuff and about what Superman would how he would factor into that. They're like, how come serran just doesn't throw all the nuclear weapons? And into the sun and then boom, you know, peace on earth and so they deal with that on there. It's still not a great film. But he wrote part of it or some of the dialog, and he was explaining that he was like, well, Superman to me is just a friend. He's somebody you can count on. He's just a friend. When you're feeling down, all that shit. And I definitely don't get that with this subsequent Superman. Like you get Brennan Ralph, who's kind of a weird stalker and Superman returns. Peeping on Lois elevator, like at her house and absente father as well. Sorry, spoiler alert. Yeah. And then you get Henry Cavill. Who is fine?.

"I've been had, you got me box one. Got me. So that's what we're doing right now. So it's gonna be a great time to see how this goes because we're just pouring doesn't matter. Actually, yeah, this one is a delicious box one. So it's an easy drink and I mean, great. This is a good summertime wine. You know? So that's why I love wines from Spain and Portugal. You know, they're just they're meant to be enjoyed, you know, table wines. Oh yeah, good stuff. Yep. And yeah, this was 20 bucks, so when you think about this $5 a bottle for a pretty good wine. Can't beat that with a stick. So Superman, 1978. Was the most expensive movie ever made at the time of its release? If you adjust to inflation, how does that hold up? Still a pretty high up there. I think those birth of a nation. Maybe there are in a movie called intolerance. I both about the same director. Controversial director. DW Griffin. Really expensive. Yeah. I mean, it was like this was back in silent movie days. Those came in the millions gone with the winds, budget was in the millions. I don't know what that translates as. There was a movie called Cleopatra that came out in 1963 with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. That cost. I think $40 million 63. Damn. It was crazy. It was a four hour movie about Cleopatra. It was rough. I watched that on AMC. It was tough to get through. It's that flop, right? I think it broke even because Liza Taylor was like the biggest star in the world at the time.
