"allison becker" Discussed on ESPN FC

"Premise was, Edward mendy is a better goalkeeper and he's playing well in this game, just leave him in. Now, the statistics show that Kappa has done better in terms of saving penalties, but I mean, we've heard these arguments hashed out before. I kind of feel like with the game that mendy had had with the confidence that he'd had better off leave him in gold. But the other side to it is Kappa started every other game in the carabao cup and was not going to play in the final, so I suppose maybe Thomas Tuchel was kind of harnessing that energy that Jürgen Klopp about when Klopp talked about playing Kelleher saying that I'm a human being too. There's no way just because we're in the final that I can possibly drop keeping cattle and play Allison Becker instead. But that was not too close reasoning for bringing it up. Definitely. No, definitely wasn't. Definitely wasn't. But he went by the stats, but in my mind, I just want to stop what mendy. And I know a Tuco couldn't possibly have predicted it was going to come down to, you know, the goalkeepers taking kicks. But nobody's back in Kappa to be calm and cool and assured if he has to take a kick. Was it that surprising that he ballooned it? I don't think so. Again, not part of Tuchel's reasoning. I'm sure he didn't think, well, kept as a better kick taker than mendy. Definitely not. No, this was entirely about, okay, I'm in a penalty shootout for a Cup final. Which one of my goalkeepers is better in penalty shootouts. And we know what statistics say in matches, I'm sure Tuco sees these guys in training as well. So I mean, look, the result is the result. Tuco's gonna get killed for this because mendy had a great game and the decision didn't work. I don't know that his logic wasn't sound in coming to that decision. I mean, I guess the problem is I'm kind of describing a black and white decision. Who's better? You are, okay, you go in. But I do understand this element of mendy was a monster in net in this game. And I do too. I'm not, I'm not completely against the idea of keeping the hot hand in gold. There has to be a confidence that comes with just having played some of the best 120 minutes of your life, not to mention JJ. This guy is what, like, a month, less than a month removed from having just one a penalty shootout in the Africa Cup of Nations. A high stakes one to win it. Now granted, the saves that he made in that shootout, one hit the post. So he didn't actually save it. And the other one was just a dreadful penalty that you and I might have been able to save. But I've got to believe just in the psychology of a player's mind. Just played a great 120 minutes recently won a high stakes even higher stakes penalty shootout than this one. I just think all of those things to me in some way have to mean something. I kind of, I don't know. I won't be put it this way. I won't be somebody who's gonna kill Tuco for this. Like I've seen, but I also probably would not have done what he did. If you look at the, if you look at the way that Kappa as well approach things. So kepper was full of energy, talking to the players taking the ball. You know, you saw what he did with Virgil van DIJK where he dared him, you know, he went to one side of the goal. He showed him the hall of the site of the goal and it is if Virgil Van Dyck taught, this is pretty disrespectful, so I'm going to ram it in right by the side you're standing. It's one of those badass things I've seen a player do. Yeah. I kept a told him. I am going to cover this entire side of the net. I'm daring you. And Van Dyck still went that way and still scored and then stared him down. Yeah. Yeah. It was really quite something. And the other thing as well, again, I'm not a professional goalkeeper. I get that but that feeling does not go away when you watch the penalty and you see how much of a hand kept it got on it. That he didn't do better with it. Now, on the other side, the system that keeping cattle are used, which was to do nothing. Just stand and try and guess correctly, that didn't work either, I mean, keeping Keller went in for none of the tricks he didn't even. He doesn't even jump. He doesn't even do that little jump beforehand. He's just on his line kind of trying to react, that wasn't particularly successful for him. So do you know what? I came across something really interesting, Andrew. I think you're going to enjoy this. Twitter, not all was providing great stuff, but in this, in this instance, I think this was great. There's a guy called gayer jar den. He's a football psychology researcher, consultant and speaker. And he's on Twitter, and he had a thread about penalty kicks. And I'm just going to read you a couple of the things that were his observations from the carabao Cup final. So he talks about the success rates. He kind of defends tuca and says, kepper has featured in their last three shootout wins and his record is superior to mendy on cap penalty take or score 71% on mendy 94%. So he deals with that. The next few slides shall we call them in his presentation are very interesting. Garret says when a shootout goes far, every single shot from number 5 and on is a Moscow to keep your team in life. Okay. In our research, we found that only about 60% of these shots are scored. Chelsea impressively scored 6 of these before kept his final miss. I thought that was interesting. So the success goes down to 60%. He talks about the fans behind the goal. So Liverpool had all their supporters behind that goal. Liverpool's fans behind the goal can benefit them if you don't let it add pressure, but derive positive energy from it. It seems like an obvious statement. 5 Liverpool players intensely celebrated their goals versus zero Chelsea players. So most Chelsea players did the finger to the lips to the Liverpool fans because they were obviously getting berated. But wait for this one, and he's done a study on this. Celebrating increases the chances of an ultimate win. Now, I'm just presenting this information if you go online, Jordan, GE, IR, Jordan. He's got a paper. That's written on this very thing. It's called emotional contagion in soccer penalty shootouts, celebration of individual success is associated with ultimate team success. Thought that was very, very interesting..

"Found it you the minute. You label anything. You're done exploring it or examining entered being curious about it. You're that's what that is and we do. Have i do it every day. Still you know all the time we all do it. We just said there that yeah. I know what that is not interested and were wrong so often you know because just sort of see a headline or see something and then we box it and be done with it and I didn't i found that limiting. But you know all. That's what writing the book did for me was helped me to realize you know what the broad has become now all these years and decades later so i that we're still talking about it's ludicrous. And yet it's come to be this affectionately. Iconic term for generation of people about their recalled youth. it's not even about. I'm an avatar of people's youth. Now in a certain way they they they hear the brat. Pack nego- oh yeah remember man when we were in school and we went to those part and they're thinking and already they're talking about themselves. They're not even talking about movies. And that's what that. The broad pack is grown to become as that kind of touchstone for generation of people for that moment in youth when people are just coming into their own lives and stepping out and discovering who they are and there's no more exciting moment in life you know and so much of your career is sort of your own use captured in this battle and you talk about just the freshness and the nascent see in the discovery that you were able to sort of have a record of as a young actor you got the you know the the bad phases too but But for sure. I mean there is. I do talk about that in the book series. That moment when it's so attractive and people when they're just blossoming. It's like a flower that's opening up. You just stop and go. My god look at that rose. It's it is beautiful. When it's something is blossoming and there are scores of examples of people through the decades. You know james. Dean in east of eden is blossoming onscreen. Leonardo dicaprio in who's didn't greatest blooming onscreen and just like. Oh my god. They're wondrous and then. I'm talking about the acting. The acting happened to be very good those cases but it's more equality than skill said so and that capturing that and that's what i certainly had in my version of that in like pretty in pink almost fire and so that's what people respond to think about me. I i mean i might i might cringe a little bit some of the acting that i did. But the certainly that quality of of awakening that is attractive. What i think is also attractive about that. Area of your career is that you seem to be an acknowledgement of your romantic co star in the same way that you experience the wonder of watching yourself having this discovery you as an actor are so gifted at reacting to the object of your characters affection the way you look at her the way you fall in love on screen that i wonder if that's sort of part of it as well well. I like women so easy to fall into. Sometimes you know you can just fall in that thing and and we've all been there you know so you just sort of opened a floodgate a little bit and people project upon you but did you set out to make us all fall in love with you. Because it's not fair. This how you look at molly ringwald or even cottrell and mannequin. And you just had this sense of you know you're a little self deprecating about you. Know about your looks and your commented about rob lowe's but i think your status of a dream boat which i'm you're kind of like ambiguous about has so much more objectify me. He's exploiting clues. But i wonder if you see in your acting and obviously you cringe but just how beautiful you take in your partner. And i think as a girl growing up with your movies and falling in love with you as i had no choice but to do so much of that has to do with your regard for your partner. I don't know if there was some method in it like you really in love with molly ringwald. Even when you were an onscreen i was not in love with molly but i think one of the things about being in love is that you're interested in the other person and one of the things about could acting as you're actively listening and you're actively interested in you you you and it's like you want to drink someone up and i mean i i understood that and i understood what being in love is that i just the more baskin you wallow in you the better i feel so i'm just gonna keep wallowing in you. You know and i think i understood that and love stuff is unspoken. So it's just it is looks and things so turn on the turn on the air conditioning over here but i mean everyone wants to be seen and heard that just that everyone universally whether and when you direct your gaze and your full attention it someone. I remember meeting the actress. Linda hunt once years ago. Is it gonna do movie with her. And she took my hand and said hello to me as the only person in the room like i. She'd been waiting to meet me for years and she had no idea who i was. I had her full attention for the miniature grabbed my hand and set her nice. It was to meet me. And i was putty in her hands for the whole film. Because of that instant you know. So i think when we really stop and get over ourselves in turn our gaze out particularly that age the as is so often and and for some of us it never turns out but when we turn that gays out.

By natalie reese she does the dungeon critters series and she made it. Look all pastel and psychedelic. And and a little. Jack kirby esque i might say so. So yeah it's it's it was. They were they were. It was really cool to work with those two just kind of genius comics folks and they made it look real nice. This is so cool. I can't wait to dig into it if i get a paper copy.

"allison becker" Discussed on WGR 550 Sports Radio

"Whenever you're first doing something you wanted to be just perfect. You're thinking so much about it. You care so much about it, And after a while, it just becomes very natural. And it doesn't take long to get there to where? When that TV camera light goes on. Or you pop up. You're not even thinking It's just all natural. But you aren't thinking back then I wasn't thinking back then, and it takes a little bit of time to get into that spot where you're entirely comfortable. And your natural instincts take over. Correct. Yeah. I mean, I didn't know they knew what I was coming in. Because they saw my tapes from Seattle. I'd say I took a crazier at ESPN because I had more stuff that I could do, right. More resources and more opportunities at my station in Seattle. You know, I tried to do some fun things, but I was at a little local independent station there had one guy working with me, You know, I mean, like, just wasn't the same thing. But As an example, we would show the the baseball scores from around the league and I have my dog eating a baseball panting and we just put dog days of summer and the scores kind of scroll, though you know to us. That was different and unique as other guys weren't doing that. It wasn't that funny, but it was just cute. It was like, Oh, here comes up funny dog again. And here comes this clever twist and The funny thing as I was already doing what we call ESPN shot sheets for those who don't know it's it's basically a shorthand description of a game. So first inning Griffey action Homer number 25 Marron was up three. Nothing right as an example. Griffey doesn't play for them anymore, but that was my best, so I was kind of doing a shot sheet. At my little station in Tacoma, right. I was already kind of do my version without even knowing what he expended. So when I made the transfer is like, Oh, yeah, well, it's already doing this model. I made that up on my own. I thought out and sail because a lot of people would write highlights, they would say. You know, type out literally type out the word in the first quarter, the session such team did such as and if you are ahead or behind, your highlight sucks, right. But if you do at the ESPN way or the way I was doing it You should be able to stay. You might fall behind you get ahead in your offers. Speed up. You know there's an art to it. Um, but, yeah, I got more comfortable with time. You know, you're always better on your second day than your first day. And you're third in your second, your fourth in a third and so on. And so for your 20 so 26 27. So when you look back now over those 27 years What will you remember most about them? It was like a Tom Rinaldi question. That's about as high a compliment. You could pay a man there, Kenny. Uh, well, the highest achievement. It's commingle the highest achievement. I was in on some Emmys with not myself, You know, like with a team like with counter it's worth her. But it was when Stevie Wonder's band members recognize me. And everyone was me. Where was that? What happened? There was, uh, he did a concert tour where he was, um, playing songs in the key of life. That was the whole whole album was was the concert right? And I got to go. Got to go backstage. The highest moment was also with him. I went down on If you remember Tim Scanlon. He used to be in baseball. And and I called him up And I said, Hey, I don't have anything set up. But I want to try to get Stevie wanted to be in this thing for the All Star game. I was playing in the softball game right for a number of years they have was the celebrity softball game than the home run Derby, then the whole thing and he's like, go for it. I said What? I don't have anything said I promise you like. Is going to cost money for the camera of the hotel. The flight like it may be nothing. Yeah, I think you'll pull it off. Good luck. Okay. That's kind of awesome. I want so I go to pit Pittsburgh. I'm sorry. Pittsburgh Philadelphia. And they're having this big concert. It was for relieving African debt. That was the point of of the show here in in in Europe is called Live eight, and Stephen won. His trailer is behind this fencing, and I'm trying to get anybody to get close. So I can kind of Hey, I'm with ESPN, and we're trying to set this thing up and I can't even get through the gate because I have no credential to do so and they're waving at people to come into his trailer to say hi like Will Smith goes in, and Natalie Portman Goes in and then the guys looking right at me, and I think they're asking me to come in. I'm like, How do they know who I am? This is a long time ago and all of a sudden Don Cheadle walks by me. They were waving to him the whole thing. But the good news is getting a lanyard from a Teamster. I ended up upgrading my access. I got to his guy, He said you pitching yourself and Stevie ended up doing his language was I can't be at the All Star game. I have a high ankle sprains. That's the favorite thing I did 27 years, the Stevie Wonder moment stands out to you. Is there a story or a show that you work done that stands out to you? Why? I'd say it would be hard to just pick one. But you know, we did the main street comedy show, Aubrey Plaza and Allison Becker, John Glaser, Ben Schwartz, leaving out people. Smith, Lenny Jacobson. All these people were in this thing that was supposed to be a version of my life that ESPN and we obviously exaggerated, you know, for the comedy aspect. All of them went on to parks and rec and many other things. So that was a great period of shooting. And you know, I didn't even take that much time. We put together a bunch of those the wider world of sports where I traveled to all the unique sports around the world. The years of doing the fake NFL stories. That was a great period. I love the horse racing of the magazine. It's funny. I'm putting SportsCenter behind those just because I'm not really putting them behind. Necessarily. Just I'm listing it late because I kind of did that. You know, I mean, like I did that. And I did that. And I did that. These other things were shorter periods of time, more unique and probably more fun. Not that I didn't like SportsCenter. But you know, getting to go to Italy and cover the Palios more funding. And you've done a little late night SportsCenter's the regular SportsCenter's. And this and that, When did you know, though, that your time at ESPN was being noticed and recognized by others? When did you know that Kenny Mayne had landed on the Mac Kenny Mayne had become somebody noticeable? Thought I'm saying, like there are little moments there that I think all of a sudden, like ESPN's a pretty big place. It's a pretty big platform. Yeah, I mean, I think it was pretty early. I didn't think of it like I have some big ego because of that, that like I still think I don't have any ego. Really? At least I hope I don't show it. I'm very confident at what I do. I think I can, right. I think I'm not horrible as a communicator on TV or whatever, but I don't think I don't go to places and drop Ius. Hey, I'm with ESPN. Can I golf for free? So I mean, who does that tree window? I can't say but other people, probably maybe. Really? Or who have used their yes, PN thing. You know, for restaurants from now, if somebody wants to welcome me and Oh, hey, we really love you. Come on in, you know, like I always feel worried about cutting the front line for anything like even at Disney. And we had a blind guy and a guy in a wheelchair, and I still felt guilty. You know, we were like dual qualifiers. My nephews blind. You can look up. Uh, the blind football announcer piece I did with him for funny or die. Um, And and my good friend marks and wheelchair some of them anyway. Yeah, so I don't know. Like It was weird how you'd get notice because you wouldn't expect it sometimes when it happened, you know you'd be at, uh, whatever going through an airport or somewhere and people did. Oh, you're the guy, you know sums. They don't care name. They got me confused with Rich Eisen or tray. Um I even got a Stuart Scott once and I thought the guy was being funny, right? I said, alright, you Yeah. You know, I'm not stir. He says you can't fool me, man. I know you guys are they just get the names mixed up and they give you any name. You just rattled off a bunch of names there who was the most talented person you work with. And I'm not trying to put you and get you in trouble. And have you forget somebody, But is there one person that Stood out to you that you work with them that their talents left you breathless, so to speak. You know what? I don't think I'd want it. I'm not going to evade. I'm not saying I'm evading the quote. But there was so many was such different things. Yeah, exactly. Stewart with Stuart's Big ham, and we all recognize that we laughed about it like You know, we could be anywhere..
