"Adams is the assistant general manager, Team USA with Chris Terreri. Is that the main point of conversation in laugh? Your Belarus is Jack Eichel one morning over coffee, Jack Eiko over beers that night like I called the next day Like, what's you've been there Dragon Cafe, like, what's that? Like? So there's my two questions? Yeah, well, number one jury is not going to Latvia. I don't know. You know he's not going. I don't know if Kevin is Um, you know, I mean, from jury's perspective, I think he felt like he put in the work given everything they've got going in New York, and he is president and general manager, So he's got two portfolios that he's operating with. But No, he's staying back in North America just to absolutely take apart this coaching hire and look around. It is existing management team. You know, he's got some real good pieces there and Kevin Maxwell comes to mind and some others so It'll be interesting to see what happens, moving forward, But I don't think that geography is going to stand in the way of Adams and jury having conversations. So there's there's terrific enters from New York's perspective as we know as we'd expect in Jack Eichel. That's why more stories you see coming out of New York. Pointing at Jack's uncertainty with health and whatnot. You know that the New York Rangers air pushing buttons right because they're trying to keep the ideal alive, but also make sure that they ask You know, isn't stuck on Alexei love friend here. Greg's. We weigh talked a lot about Jackie's. He's big story right now. And even the coaching decision that Kevin Adams has to make a guy that's kind of like going under the radar right now. Sam Reinhart. Great. Great End of the season. Great season in all, you know, he's a restricted free agent. What are you hearing? About Sam Ryan hurt? Yeah, not a lot other than what he acknowledged in his media availability, and I, you know, some came away from that. I don't know what you guys thought. On bear was a general sense of negativity, maybe not directed at sound, but just the lack of confidence that maybe he wants to stay long term with the Buffalo sabers. Well again, he's a restricted free agent. So he doesn't control the process. But you know, he's gonna want his agents Newport sports to to manage what is the best deal. He's been down the road of contracts. What sort of term What sort of money? Is it going to take? Tiki pay him in Buffalo. We know that the Buffalo sabers had lots of trade interests in Sam Reinhart leading right up to the trade deadline. And the return just wasn't worth the value that you get in in sand Reinhardt as a hockey player, as uh ah high character individuals, so that position hasn't changed from Buffalo's perspective. What are they going to have to pay more in terms and maybe a little bit more in a V to keep this guy happy on? That's what we don't know. I suspect, though, that that might be the case. All right, well, drinks. I mean, we're almost out of time. But there's what we are out of time. But there's one more thing. I gotta ask you that Have you been? Were you yachting around December 22nd with Eugene Melnyk on the dream of what is it? The dream of NASA is that was the name of the boat was I just looked at. It was like a super yacht. Right? And I think I saw I don't know that Melmotte paid this but this particular yacht Rents out for like $500,000 for the week, plus tip. So I mean, that's a big change. No question, but apparently Eugene melt like like he just She's this guy, and, uh, Here's a lawsuit over there, and here's another one over here. I mean, I give him credit in that regard because he's not afraid of what public perception is going to be. How bad must his experience to been for him to launch the lawsuit for a number of reasons allegedly. So it's just another chapter in what has turned out to be an ex. I clip media, not just a book on Eugene Melnyk, So I spoke around the NHL just kind of somewhat tongue in cheek this morning when I first read the story, and I was like You know the commissioner's office is this move the needle for you guys. Do you pay any attention to it, and they're like nuke. We're not monitoring this to it all and it must be a real slow news day for you to even ask about it. So I sent you guys sent and it is a slow news day. It's ah, It's an interesting story surrounding Surrounding Ah, owner in the NHL's looks like he's trying to sue for $10 Million to maybe acquire a player too, in the off season or maybe a yacht a down payment on the super yacht that he's suing the company. Over there you go. Maybe he wants the yacht drags. Thanks for your time today. Great as usual. T s and hockey insiders that Darren Dreger on Twitter joins us now. Fridays at 11. O'clock.

Kim Ng Makes Baseball History
"We'll somali i. Can you talk about your own relationship with kim hang. How did you get to know her. I started reporting on the dodgers around two thousand eight or nine with espn. And i'd see her on the field and she always was just kind of calmly standing there and you know just seemed like whatever interaction she had with people were seemed to be efficient and short and so it kind of intrigued me. Who is this person. So we just got to talking like. Oh this is this is coming. She's says gm and all of a sudden she's telling me stuff like we've got this kid kenley jansen as a catcher. You really can't hit those we put them on a mound and the results are interesting. Clayton's working on a slider molly. You should really check it out. But the where she would say it was so matter of fact and so dislike whole-home that that's kind of what stood out to me about her and then we've kept in touch over the years. How would you describe her personality. What she like completely unflappable. I think the first thing that needs to be done is. I've got a really familiarize myself with all. The ins and outs of the players. Deadpans are totally cool under pressure. Like the person you gonna call if you were kidnapped and needed the ransom delivered by noon with no you know without tipping off the police or anything else you. She won't be there. Where are we who these players are. And you know. That's that's at this point. The nuts and bolts of the job. Well for those. Who don't know that much about kim. And can you tell us about her career path so she played softball diversity of chicago. She was an infielder. She was really good. I was really a a sports nut love to play and she then became an intern with the white sox and twenty one years old working in the white sox baseball ops as an intern and at the time the other white sox were very good club had a lot of good young players and it was really just about learning and soaking it. All in absorbing all that i could and by the time she was twenty nine she was brian. Cashman the yankees assistant general manager and that was in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. They won titles ninety eight ninety nine and two thousand now. Let's be clear here. That had she been a man she would have gotten a gm job somewhere else. But that didn't happen. Molly you about saying and how. She operated differently than her peers in l. a. Can you tell us about that. I mean that that dodgers organization was by a bunch of guys who were so emotional so yell at each other so in their feelings she was just sort of just like standing there. Like i can't believe you guys and so it was just like toddlers running around at her feet. Two thousand five. The gm position becomes open and she interviewed for that job. What happens there. She was by all accounts. She was right there and franklin court the former owner of the dodgers wanted to hire her her pedigree spoke for itself. She had three world series rings. She had sixteen years in the business and the owner frank mccord. He wanted the credit of hiring the first female general manager. But what i was told later was that he was scared of the backlash of being the first guy to fire a female general manager. Because as we know it's a cutthroat industry n. gm's they don't their shelf life long even talented ones and so that was one of the reasons he was too scared of that. I guess the mcchord years got really ugly and about i say i wanna say two months before. The dodgers filed for bankruptcy. Because of a court drove the team into the ground. She got out of there and went to work with joe. Torry be again demonstrating how smart. She is molly. You know as well as anybody that kim has been talked about for basically twenty years now as the person who is going to be the first woman. Gm in baseball. Do you have a sense. For how many teams have considered her or interviewed for this position. Because yesterday when i wrote my story i published. I said as far as we know. The dodgers angels the padres the giants the mariners. They've all any reader and within like two minutes. My story going up. Somebody with orioles texted me. Oh we interviewed or to like it was just like everybody is interviewed her. Just sit there going through this anymore. They're just putting me through this so they can fill their quota or whatever i'm not gonna put myself section but she just did not give up and that's really the way a lot of my career has gone is just every step of the way it working as hard as i could give you my nose to the grindstone and just you know getting to the next level but i think this is so valuable to any of us who do have specific dream in mind about something. We'd like to do one day. And that's you know when you call close and you don't get that job that you desperate for just got a flick flush it and let it go and not let it break you to the point where you're not going to try again.

"Everybody gets out. Kick the coverage with Clay Travis. You know that I have argued for a long time that Jim Harbaugh is the most overrated coach in the history of college football. But the challenge in general here I don't know what's going to happen with Michigan and how this Jim Harbaugh situation is going to come out because I don't think that there are great options for Michigan to replace Jim Harbaugh. But I think the likelihood is that he is going to make a make a choice basically make a decision. Walk away and go back to the NFL. And if that ends up happening, then how exactly does Michigan bounced back from the guy that they thought was gonna be there Football savior and go find someone new.

Marlins Name Kim Ng MLB's First Female General Manager
"Huge story today from the world of Sports. The first we have a first Ah Qiming. Who has worked in baseball. Dating back to 1990. She was an intern with the Chicago White Sox. And then she was an assistant general manager with the New York Yankees, And she was insistent general manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and she's been interviewing and interviewing, interviewing, and today she became the first general manager. Was a female. Who is also Asian. All of it in Major league baseball history. She's gonna be kind of work for the Miami Marlins. Now I was thinking like Did I probably not gonna be able to get Kim on the air tonight because, you know You might be a little bit busy, but you know, the Chicago Cubs have a Rachel holding. And Rachel was a stud softball player, and she has been with the Cubs now. Ah! As a hitting structure in the minor leagues, and she does a lot of technical stuff. And so I reached out and she was happy to come on. She's tweeting about the happy she was for Cam and she joins us now, Rachel, I know this was an absolutely huge day for you for for Kim for the industry as a whole. Oh, yeah, of course. I mean, I know Kim personally, So you know, no one is more deserving of this job, and all you have to do is look at her resume toe understand that she's Probably overqualified in in a lot of ways, just really, really happy for her proud of the Marlins. Just pretty exciting stuff. Were you expecting this to happen? Once you heard that she was interviewed like this has got to be the one I didn't know she was interviewing. I actually, um maybe I just didn't follow it too closely, But I know her journey has put her in an assistant GM position. A few times, So I figure any time there's a GM opening. She should be considered for it So, but I didn't know she was interviewing personally, But so it was, like a total surprise for me, and I kind of dig it. Yeah, For sure. Like just for those who don't know Kim's career path. Just Ah. Thumbnail shot of it. She was an intern with the Chicago White Sox that started back in 1990. Then she became an assistant general manager for the Yankees and 98 left New York to go to the Dodgers in 2001, as in the same position. Then she interviewed to be the GM for the first time in 2005. Ned Colletti got that gig. And now it's been 15 years trying to become a GM. And here she is, What do you aspire to in the game, right? So you got a sweet position right now. But if you know, 10 years out, if you could pick something, any idea what it would be You know, I get this question a lot. I think with the way that the baseball season has gone first, I'd like to get a full year of baseball under my belt. No without a pandemic or anything else kind of derailing that, but You know, my my passion has always just been being in the cage and influencing players. And so you know, both of those things I'm very, you know, fortunate to have the position that I have right now because it allows me to both of those things. As for where I go from here, I mean, as long as I'm not sitting behind a desk and I get to be interacted with the players and put a uniform on and be in the cage. I think that's zef innately where I wanna be.

P. couch sections where you can come with a group of friends we have a bar late at that location I know we have sixteen eighty five incident TV is that either can be on sixteen different games or we compare for those together and make a giant screen so it's just part of the entire experience so you can place your wager and then you have one year to collect your winnings if you win that but you don't have to say at the casino but what we're saying is people will enjoy the experience that we have the food options that we have folks are stick around tell us a little bit about that race the minute is coming Illinois Indiana has it first are you hoping then to indoctrinate us illinois' into two coming over there and and you're gonna keep us as clients or do you suspect that once it's legal Illinois you're gonna drop off a little bit yeah what was so what we believe that we have the best offering and will continue to have the best offering even once sports betting is legalizing Illinois and so as folks come and experience everything that we have the offer we expect a significant number of those gas coming back I wonder is a consumer what are you going to do because it's the same bat so are you gonna give me a better deal on the stakes are your GI isn't the drinks I mean how do you how do you keep people on your side of the line yeah so there's a few different ways and first of all having guests come from all over even coming past other casinos in the region nothing new to us so what part of Caesars entertainment that's over forty casinos in the country as you are but with us whether that's on sports whether it's on cable games were that's World Series of poker whether that slot you learn rewards and points and offers that you can redeem either at our facility or at our forty other facilities so whether that Harris New Orleans and you want to go down experience all the fun that you can have in New Orleans status of Lennix the Lake Tahoe no one else can offer what we offer in that regard somebody told me I could you compare the traffic you're getting because you got seven million people right around the bend there in the state that they can't that and so lucky you right it seems to me like you would just be such a magnet for that can you compare contrast how you guys are doing relative to places in Las Vegas or I don't know New Jersey or wherever they have wherever else they have these things you talk about how much money you're taking in compared to those places yeah we're we're saying significant action at this point part of it is just the pent up demand of folks that have never been able to bet on sports now are able to and so we are we're experiencing great value in similar to sales users palace in Las Vegas which is known for being one of the premier sports books and the entire country more or less are you making more money or less than Caesar's in Vegas it's it's not quite at that users level Caesar's palace is really panicle out for the country and for our company so not there yet somebody told me you guys are right there that you are like making them what we are saying increased demand for two reasons one we're still really near so we've been open now for what it nineteen days we opened September fourth Sir takes a little bit of time for about momentum to build the word of mouth to get around and for folks to experience see feel all the great stuff that we have going on you said you asked what other reason someone might come in addition to pushing that but we have promotions every single week through the entire football season it's called the million dollar dollar check where if you yes the right team and that's completely free to enter there's weekly prizes we have fifty thousand dollars an alley drawing January fourth those are all the different things that really sets us apart from from other casinos but other forms of entertainment well about this of no so if I was there today I could bet on the football game tonight right the bears Redskins no I don't even know some like you disconnected now sounds like you still there Hey no can you hear me yeah I think we lost develop all hang up you go ahead get a back on line one more time just finish this conversation because I was just about to ask him okay I can bet on the game tonight but then I wonder if they have what they call them pop that's all of those are the things that you can bet on and I I'm kind of intrigued by all of this but I'd I'm not a player just because I know what I don't know is no still on the line okay will reach back out to him then no Hirsch there are no you're back on WGN so I could bet on the game tonight right and what would what would I do that on like is a bet who's going to win but I got to cover the spread and it's five and a half points or something like that yeah there are three different of the most popular bats are betting on one Siemens Brad right Sir whatever that spread might be because of the number of points that you either have to give or that you received as far as an underdog or favorite so that's one of the most popular bats the second popular but it's called the over under but and that is what are you take both teams their final score and your back either the over which means the number that's giving you think the scores can be higher when you combine both teams scores you take and can be lower and then the third is called a money line back where you take the spread completely out of it you just back on one of the few teams they think they're gonna win I like that I mean you might want to look yeah and for that money line back you might want a little more if you bet on the underdog you what my when a little less if you're betting on favorite doesn't really three most popular batch you do some of the silly ones like you know is the field goal kicker gonna scratches here six times or something like that yeah there's some prop they're called prop bets that we have we offer four different sports in different games as we move along will be opening up some some more of those facts the Superbowl is really known for being the king of proposition that so whether it's how long the are National Alliance and this can be some four and things of that nature is there any limit to how much money I can spend or lose their there is a if there is a limit on the amount of money that you can win her back so if you are not a cardholder and it differs a little bit by gaming and buy back type but will allow wager where you can win twenty thousand dollars back really but then after that no so whatever the wager is he won't take any more of my money if I win I get more than twenty thousand dollars well you so if you would make less so you place to live on the first night and you you don't take it would win twenty thousand dollars will let you go through with that if you want to place in different separate bat for an upcoming college or pro football game this weekend then you can make another wager with that twenty thousand Max pay out what are the top things that people are wagering on NFL like the bears would be number one was the Michigan game or the Notre Dame game the next one key can you categorize those for me yes pro football's came the the majority of our action and the action in the country is on in the fall after that we've seen a lot of action on college football as well as on Major League Baseball and is there is is there a game though that you can point to the got the most wagering going on but not not from this past weekend I was so the bears are each week have been a significant in game that's been wagered on that opening night so when we opened September fourth thirty six hours later the Packers played on the bears and

"Major League baseball is looking into claims about Astros Assistant General Manager Brandon Tomen Major League Baseball Center will interview relevant parties regarding allegations published Monday that's all straight article the SL reports had tall been the astros assistant GM repeatedly yelled toward a group of female reporters during the team's American League pennant celebrate in his remarks reportedly reference Houston closer Roberto Suna who suspended for seventy five games in two thousand eighteen for violating the league's domestic violence policy before joining the Astros in trade from Toronto according to the report in sports illustrated what Tom and yelled over and over again was essentially that he was glad the Astros added a suna an act for which they were criticized heavily last year on Monday night the Astros put out a statement according to the article as quote unquote misleading and quote unquote completely irresponsible but on Tuesday the Astra seemed attempt to walk that back you're putting out statements by twelve men and owner Jim Crane would seem to acknowledge the incident that took place and Thomas Statement indicated quote unquote he apologize to anyone and he may have offended privately major league baseball's were furious about that statement that came out Stephanie Epstein who's The reporter wrote the story for sports illustrated talked about witnessing what tolman had done it was startling I mean none of us were talking to this person none of us we're talking about this person get I we were kind of surprised why why is this guy yelling at us and then once we started listening to what he was saying and seeing kind of the look on his face we realized Oh this is this is an unusual this is an unusual moment a little bit scary I would say and certainly unsettling that interview was on aside the lines Stephanie continued to talk about when this happened and at that point a lot of the players had gone and we're beginning to shower get dressed get ready to to go home with their families some of them were celebrating on the field so there were still players in the clubhouse certainly but it was not the same kind of raucous celebration usually see and generally also it's mostly or entirely players there you don't see that many front office officials is generally left to the players to celebrate so he was in a group Brennan was in a group of people a group of other front office officials I imagine I didn't know all of them and they were sort of chatting casually among themselves until until I guess he spotted US and decided to speak out she talked about the Astros Statement which so infuriated Major League baseball it starts out by confirming my reporting just it says that actually I misunderstood the context well there was no as the Houston Chronicle has has mentioned there was no interview taking place as soon as farther away from you album than we were so that seems like a stretch and he turned to face us that's been it was the other direction so that doesn't make a lot of sense and then it also seems like sort of a miscalculation I guess when and it's a room full of reporters I think it's likely that people are going to speak truthfully about what they witnessed so I'm not I'm not really sure what the plan was surrounding that's Ah I will say that I did not fabricate it in the summer of two thousand eighteen one a sooner became available after serving his suspension every team in baseball passed on him other than the Astros and Stephanie gave context of that decision honestly this is an attitude that I see across a lot of baseball on Sports in general is that when these teams acquire players with reprehensible pass they say listen the bargain is that we're going to get this guy for fifty cents on the dollar but we will pay a price and public outcry and this was the start of a conversation we are prepared to keep having this conversation but they don't actually want to have that conversation they want to get their guy what they paid for them and then they want to sort of move on and have us all focus on the fact that they are very good at winning baseball games and I don't think they get to decide that before game one of the World Series Aj hinch talked about the incident in the clubhouse it's unfortunate it's uncalled for it for me as a leader in this organization down here in the clubhouse on the field take everything that happens in the clubhouse to heart you know no one I don't I don't it doesn't matter if it's a player coach manager any of you members of the media should ever feel like when you come into our clubhouse that you're gonna be uncomfortable or disrespected I think we all need to be better across the award in the industry I understand why it's a question today and I you know I appreciate it but I was disappointed. Aj hinch was asked about how the Astros Organization that handles people. I don't think it's my job to evaluate that I mean I understand the question I appreciate it but the last twenty four hours I've been pretty locked in on the What's and I think answering that question at this moment is probably not fair to me enough fair to the organization I tell you this that majorly Paul would've looked into the todman incident either way but I do think that the statement the Astros put out on Monday night double down not only the whole situation them but I think for Major League Baseball which was absolutely livid over how the Astros seem to target the credibility of the report. are mentioning that report was misleading mentioning that the report was completely irresponsible and it definitely when you see on Tuesday how the Astros tried to walk back the comment until the organization comes forward and acknowledges that their statement was mislead being in completely irresponsible the Front Office of the Astros will have no credibility in this issue and whenever discipline comes down and I do think sums coming down I think more of it's going to be about the statement that the team put out under organization letterhead
"There's Something About Mary" Actor: W. Earl Brown Interview
"My next guest is one of the most talented diverse actors i've ever had on the show. Please welcome w earl brown to the show. He's one of the best actors on a plane. That's certainly one of my favorites earl house like treating it today. It's going pretty excellent. I'm gonna tell you right now. I'm gonna kiss your ass. We're here you have perhaps the funniest pin tweet i have ever read in my life and i'll for those of you that are listening. I will go through a really quick in my career. I've been killed twenty twenty eight times so far. I've killed over forty and i lost my baseball that pretty much sums it up. I mean i could not stop laughing that assist in half to say so. I'm reading some ear your tweets here before i get into your life a little bit one. I completely agree with your take on casting directors actors and how they should receive some type of recognition from the from the academy. I am so on board with you on that. That was the first thing i thought when i saw that david but rubin has been named president of the academy that that finally they should be able to get recognition because it's the only department in in all of l. making the only department head. There's a head of casting that there's no oscar recognition in the never has been <hes> and that that's that's wrong so hopefully it will okay so that's that's insane because i have to tell you earl the fact that i had jackie burch on the show. I want to see a year ago. I mean she was the backbone for those unbelievable unbelievable. John hughes movies early on. She's one of the best casting directors on the planet and people don't know that because they know that but there's no you're right. There's gotta be some type recognition for these people's great work. Yeah i'm on board and two more things before we get to your life. You're a huge kiss fan. Is that accurate well. I'm a huge music fan rights across the board. That's like a lot of live shows on but yes as as a kid one of the things that right around the time. I thought i technically cognizant thought that i want to be in movies. I was a ratted kiss fan. Yes <hes> um and then <hes> so <hes> yeah. I've i've gone through numerous times over. You must follow my tweets. I am i'm going on the kiss cruise. I've been invited in years past to go and i can finally do it. I finished production on the show. I'm working on right now. <hes> <hes> right about the time of the crew so that was like you know what i'm going to one of my one of my buddies musician buddies from nationals going with me because my wife has desire higher hispanic tomorrow night in charleston. South carolina is legitimate like crews career away for a couple of weeks. Is that how that work yet. It's a five day cruise. It's a music cruise. I've done it the outlaw country cruise which is x._m. Series <music> outlaw and they do it in conjunction with six men. Six men also produces. The kiss cruise routes on the same boat. It's the same everything that's how i've been invited it. 'cause i've gotten to know all those guys and they found that i was a kiss. Fan like me just spoke so i'm finally doing for me. The twenty five hundred trunking rolling all night darting in every day in the guest navy man gene gene gene simmons does not get enough credit. He's done some beautiful things with make a wish kids but that's another story for another time. Do some really sweet things that people don't know about but the last tweet that i wanted to just before we get into your life is your recognition of the show the boys on prime. How freaking greed is that show. I i love it. I still got to shoot episodes. I think left to go yeah saddam idiots. It's it's disturbing. I'm riveted to it <hes> with you know it's such a social satire commentary on the world. We live in business that worked and the political system that we're all living. It's it's really really good and when you think about it and i won't ruin it for you because you have to left but when you think about it though it's that's exactly how superheroes would be if they existed. They wouldn't be like the marvel crew. They would be exactly like this right. Okay so let's get into your mazing life man here so you're born in western kentucky so the acting buds bog in performance bug has got a bite you right that grandparents grandparents house right because they do a lot of i don't wanna see entertaining because that's a terrible war. They put a well. How would you phrase it was the fourth i peter peter i ever attended was my grandparents torch it. Was you know it was farming. Culture and on the weekends are on sundays usually sunday afternoons afternoons after church. That's where everyone would gather. Isn't that was the one day they wouldn't be working. <hes> the the first time i really thought that i i wanna do that. I mentioned earlier of freshman year in high school three movies that just blew me away that it was the summer seventy seven seventy eight <hes> star wars halloween animal house. Those are the ones youngest pre trees videotape rentals. You know if you saw movie you had to see skaters so the movies i went back to seek multiple times where those three and they were the ones that really planted the seed. I've told by a family friend. I do do not remember this but i can remember being the ham as a kid telling jokes that stuff but she swears when i was around five years old at my grandmother's house. She said what she goes. You look to being you said monday. I'm going to be an actor in movies. I don't i don't remember it but she he swears so i guess that seat was planted earlier animal house. You have to say one of the things that you have that is really difficult difficult to get either. You have it or you don't that's my opinion on. This is a sense of humor because i i always have those people who say well. I'm funny like if you have to tell somebody. You're funny earl. You're not not funny and i believe that you've got that about you. Thanks there is there is a thing of timing that is kind of an inherent thing that if people don't have it you can't learn it <hes> it is an innate thing that really goes to the any kind of skill in any creative pursuit <hes> but yes. I do think there's a lot of great stand up comics folks who were not good actors and there's a lotta great actors who can't do comedy. I always found myself drawn towards the uh the artists that kind of <hes> did everything and shell silverstein and kris kristofferson and you know musicians as in writers and painters actors don't really think it all comes from the same place is different skill sets crafts skills involved also but that that need to create live in the moment and we share that with that i think is universal. No that's really really well said and i was talking to aunt cusak who's in the boys and she brought up second city in chicago and she was talking about that and how how that how you mentioned timing right so she was really focused on the timing part of it so it's interesting to hear you say it that way. It's really really well federal and it's it's just a story from my resume in how you approach stuff i i was a rabid seinfeld fan and i ended up getting cast on seinfeld with guest star and i never really been around. Any of those got is in leary had just won the award for master of my domain which i think alongside vitamin d benjamin lucie is the best half hour of television comedy ever written a bomb. There's some norman lear stuff that i would probably put come in that pantheon but but anyway just line so i find myself on the show cont- they fired another star in the middle of that week. I hadn't seen larry the entire time and we're about to shoot and mine was a big theme at the top of the show that sets the a. n. B. storylines in into play too big seen on a on a bus with george jerry so we've we've been rehearsing on the set. We're going to pre-tape that on an actual bus so there is shows up for the rehearsals we we go through it and as they're pulling the boss on the sound stage he goes earl is comically this. This seems not working not that coming so we go down to the other during the stage and he says let's let's run it. I'll be jordan jerry u._b. L. let's let's let's run it so we do it two or three times and he had this annoying habit habit of shaking his head no ever so slightly as we're doing it because i tell you i tell you what let's switch out the audi al u._b. George and jerry gary. Let's switch so we do it a couple of times switching roles. It was all right. Let's switch back so we slipped back back started doing this thing. He starts shaking his damned head and you know i don't lose my cool hardly ever do i even get nervous but man by ask was clinton in that. I'm gonna get tired. I said all right but let's and as he shaking his head ahead no and when i see all right what's what's the intention at the top of the scene. I mean the beat when i think of in terms of of the beats intentions intentions as an actor. <hes> you know that you enter a scene you you have a purpose for entering seeing that in that whole purpose that arc leeches through the seeing you have beats that that changed through the course of things leading toward the purpose so that's the way i think of stuff and i said so. You'll oh my intention when i entered the scene i i don't know him from from this week and he's looking at me with this incredulous look on his face me like i said oh. I didn't say this but i thought it. She doesn't think black a playwright. He doesn't think what beatson intentions each strictly comic rhythms bets. Ah the rhythm and pace of the saying fuck do it again. Let's do it again. I go back to the top and basically impersonated canadian him doing the part. That's it that's it. That's it that's it. That's the thing so that you know that was a learning process because that's the way he approaches stuff <hes> and then of course when we got he put himself in the scene as the man in the cape running on the bus and we get on the bus. I was too tall for the lights. I had to squat so that my face would appear on camera. I had he was the most unnatural thing in the world on on on camera on the frame it will but i had to do was incredibly comfortable and then we start filming the damn seen i can see his ball all hit the corner of my eye checking when he says that you know the larry sanders show exaggerated. I buy per cell nice not exaggerating there <music> but that but that's a that's a great point you bring up because you kind of he just has a different approach of how to do things. I mean look at your. I mean when i said had you were a diverse actor. I wasn't kidding all your work. Your filmography filmography is amazing so you must have as an actor those little. Those are the little things you have to learn along along the way that that obviously make you the actor you are today right. It's those little moments right. Is that a good way of looking at it yes but but it looks like not every situation. Are you perfect for our baseball game on right now. Not every great player fits on every t- recruit them and and in that situation it was it was uncomfortable for me. It turns out. It's aren't you know i'm i'm fine in it. I'm in the same cell thing <hes> and then other times. There's situations where it's just like. You know it's a perfect perfect fit. You just immediately click in with everybody that you're working with. Deadwood was that was just a really rare her <hes> situation that we were all firing on all cylinders and and we knew that we have something unique and it created hit a bond that that still exists a jerry stone pot that still exists between all of us yeah. It's an absolute work of art. I'm going to touch on that in a moment. I'm so yeah you we talked about these experiences. You you end up getting a bachelor's degree murray state you get your m._f._a. At depaul to great schools so so we get early on earl that you're the acting bug is bidu. You're you're very talented. You're you're certainly met to what you're doing but where who is your biggest influence fluence kinda coming along we mentioned some movies. We mentioned some moments but whether it's the paul murray state. Is there a mentor or somebody kind of growing up or developing your your your skill. Is there somebody that you really credit more than anybody else or is it just the the <hes> all these things taking into account as one like i think yes there's absolutely been great teachers along the way i think getting a little metaphysical here but i think the universe sent you. The teachers features that you need in these places in your life just has to be open and aware you know and and i can look back. I mean the first major influence. I was a high school teacher. Our speech in debate coach larry england mccallum county high school. He demanded the best of you. He demanded and did you work <hes> and he always said look winning is a byproduct of being at your best and he said here's here's the deal. We're all from a farming community in western kentucky. There's nothing wrong with being a farmer with being a carpenter would be with as long as you choose that as long as that's what you wanna do with your life but don't let think just because of the background you're from anything's possible and my group of friends that we're in that group with me are highly successful.

Thanks bert one is he's now on his own but he was with oracle years out of dallas <hes> and we joke about something the water amongst us that we we kind of set off of each other and challenged each other and we all got out and did something else with our lives <hes> so that and then in college of martin allen oscar was the head of a theater department when i took an acting class on a whim i had no idea what i was going to do when i started college of the first my family to ever go to college and mark but then eight professional actor at one point in his life and he's the one who kind of pulled me aside and when you have something special you have so there was him i don the second city chicago there was going it can in graduate school and then in the professional world.

Bob Gainey was there as GM Doug was the assistant general manager? And he said, we got back the next year. Ear. And he said it just is so hard so taxing to get back and he says he's got so much respect for the teams that have been able to do it year after year and stay at that high level, and congratulations to Doug, on, on what job he did when he made all those deals. Everybody thought the team would be good. They worked for two months, and he stuck with it. Lose pose for their celebrate. Tori picture with the Stanley Cup about this one Joe the blues go ten and three on the road. Only six and seven at home. They are the first team to win the Stanley Cup with a losing home record in the playoffs since the Montreal Maroons in nineteen thirty five. I it's unbelievable. But this was a team Kenny that learned to they learn to win on the road, the second half and you went back to that date January third, they were the last place team in the National Hockey League. Their schedule looked like it was going to be impossible for them to even give a, a shot at making the playoffs. But they that's how they learn to win. They learn to win on the road, that's where they came together. And that's why this is not surprising watch again, Rick side Ryan Boucher. Thanks Kenny with Ryan Reilly the cons my trophy.

"To the man cave. Okay. Borough to creating. Go. All right. I am in some man cave, and what are we talking about in the man cave? I we're talking about something that came up in the mail bag about the, the young child that was smashed by the line drive at the cubs Astros game is really how ball, right this Bom. And this was in Houston. It goes to the whole netting situation. So we argue about the netting when I was a kid, you went you had your glove. I mean I wasn't I didn't play baseball and I didn't. I didn't play softball but we had gloves. My brother had some gloves. We have gloves. And when my mother took us to the game, which was at veterans stadium in Philadelphia. I mean, we of course, balls could come up near us. We were we were young but we would have been anxious to try to catch them. But you see the way the ball is hit when you're down close, we weren't that close. So this was an situation of a loopy still hard hit ball. It was a foul ball that really shook up, Al, you know, Albert L Maura to the point where I mean, his, he just started bawling because he knows he knows what that how hard that ball comes at you. And it just it was booted down the third base line hit the young girl. She was picked up by a man who was with her father dash up the stairs. And she was taken to the hospital, and they don't have any more details about that. They're just saying, you know, the. Astros released pitchers thoughts and prayers kinds of things that you would say, but it's a horrible thing because they have already extended the netting. Bottom line is got extended all the way gotta push down further. That's you know, this is what you do. Bring kids to games. That's what baseball's about. And that's that relationship with the family and all of that. So I don't blame him for being really shook up about it. And yes, they had the the fan. They had the netting than they had that protection. But she was just far enough back. We're the netting ended smell, I guess they could expand it more. And that's probably what they're going to do. Because we see that there's lots of incidents that have happened before you know, other kids have been injured and hospitalized after that. And it's goes to the situation of how close do you want to the fans to the game? This is great game of major league. Baseball family oriented all that kind of thing young kids want to be there. Parents, bring young kids, it's time to spend time together the balls are gonna come come in pretty hard. I mean the speed of the game is very, very quick, and they I think they have to do whatever they can to make fans safe. It just was sad to see it 'cause he was really, really upset. And it's not it was. Accent? I'm was maximum. Meaning it just happened to be the wrong timing of, of everything. And she was there and that's it. So those arguments and discussions about the game. And how close you are, and things that happen. They're always going to be there, but they have the netting up, but I guess they have to, to push it. You know, even even further, I suppose, and we would absolutely be going around and around about because I know there's some people that would say, well, then kids shouldn't be at the game or they should be a certain age is understand, or you have to completely keep your eye on your kids, the entire time you're at the game. And of course. You can't blame the father for that. I mean were they there what was happening there were it looked to me from what I saw. They were just a family sitting there watching the game. And it it was quick. And the speed is fast. And then boom boom boom, you know, that's it. All right. Speaking of that's it. That's it for the jets. I mean the jets, it's not it. But they gotta find the next it because they fired their general manager a couple of weeks ago. So now they gotta find somebody else to step into that position. You know, I've been thinking about this. What is the one job, I would not want on an NFL team. I wouldn't want to be the GM you, you do get the glory, but you also are the dumping ground. I mean that comes with the territory and hey, you get paid handsomely and you're in the game. And all that you could say you're the ultimate chess player, if you have the autonomy from the owner or you have their ear. But it can be tough when you're in one of those situations where you need. You know, you need the GM to be strong the need the GM to be plugged into the owner. I mean, it's tricky you're in that year, the glue you're in that middle ground. Right. So the jets probably will have a new GM, they think in place in the next seven to two weeks, seven days to two weeks, and they're looking at different people. Who are they talking to the Vikings assistant general manager New Orleans Saints director of pro scouting? They're looking at Philadelphia Eagles vice president player personnel, Joe Douglas. They're looking at the Chicago Bears assistant director of player personnel champ Kelly. We there's candidates out there. But finding the right person to fill. But that role will be tricky. I mean, the GM has control. The fifty three man roster has final say on player personnel decisions, but above. The, you know, that's that's the deal. So the uncertainty at the ownership level. If you're a candidate that would be concerning that'd be a disconcerting factor. You know, you have Woody Johnson, who is the US ambassador to the United Kingdom, and what happens with his future role with the twenty twenty presidential election. So he's running the team. The other Johnson is running the team while Woody Johnson is in his position as the ambassador to England. So, so a lot kind of hinges there I don't. You know, I I don't know. What's going to happen because of political situations? And then the person that hires you may might not be there watching your back if that makes sense. You know, one thing about being a professional athlete. Is and people always are gather make too much money. Even though we live in a capitalistic society, entertainers get paid a ton of money for what they do. I mean you can argue when someone's overpaid it to be a player in whatever sport. Sure. That's a huge argument. We can constantly argue about that. But I started thinking about this the other day 'cause I, I got a somebody sent me an inserted a magazine about these incredible houses, and credible cars and crab credible babes incredible bub-bubba of athletes. And I sold thing on Odell Beckham junior that he's got an RN GE Rolls, Royce with a pop up hood, ornament that has a miniature size model of him in a Browns uniform making one of the one handed catches. He became known for really while he was with the giants. And the car, actually is, is an interesting looking car. It's obviously very tricked out and customized, he was traded to Cleveland and March stayed in New York for five seasons. Certainly as a top player in the NFL he likes to. He's a styling guy and he likes to show it off. This Rolls, Royce will make him not anonymous in Cleveland. He will be easily spotted out. He's got a mandatory mini camp. That's coming up, and I'm sure he'll bring that, that new toy. Probably with him, right? He better bring the incredible skills. He had with the giants to them as well. Because if he he's kind of player that likes to do the, the boasting a little bit of the trash talking, and you got to back that up with sixty s if he backs that up. You're listening to me, some of you in Cleveland, then that's fine you you'll back him up. But if it's more wind than action, that won't be good. Right. It won't be good. One thing that has been good. And we'd talk about this too, in the man cave, because it's all about the size of the TV. Right. Whatever you're watching and. You might be watching the playoffs both in the NBA and on the ice. I said, this blues, Bruin series, the blues one on Wednesday, three too, but it was over time for them to win it. This is good. I mean, this is vintage hockey where it's edge of your seat, you know, who knows what's going to happen. How do these two teams get here in the first place because that's that's what some I mean? Both teams are excellent. But how did the the teams that looked? Let's put it that way, the teams that look like they were going to be there. How do they have they bounce out, so ugly? And if you look at the first game the Bruins beat the blues four two now the blues come back in overtime. Do them a favour did themselves. They were and they tied up. So they're not behind April so to speak when they get back out on the ice again. And this is really. The story of goaltending always is defense two way players. And watching that, watching the lines and watching the clock. I mean watching the talented this game when it's so so close and paying attention to all of that in the NBA you could say the same thing. While you've got a couple of teams that are figuring out who they're trading what they're doing. You have the raptors and the warriors for the NBA finals that starts on Thursday that tips, it's going off first game in Toronto. So while those teams are looking forward to the possibility for the warriors of winning another championship of possibility for the raptors for finally getting their do. I mean, this is the first NBA finals without.

"Sours optimism about the future of women and coaching. But it's not an easy path for anyone sourse told me, she got her big break when she met Scott P Oli. He's now assistant general manager for the Atlanta Falcons. I really got to know him. He got to know me about my passion. My love for football. And my love for coaching, and he really became. My mentor, and if it wasn't for him. I would definitely not be where I am today. There is a point where I owned a home. I was the director for the city of Kansas City. I I had a mortgage to pay and this opportunity came up in Atlanta to be an intern and a lot of people don't know this. But he actually paid for my rent in Atlanta. So that I would be able to afford my mortgage that I was still trying to pay and I was blessed to have such a great mentor in my life. What strikes me about your story? Is that it's in fact, probably not unusual, right? Like, I'm sure a lot of young male coaches. Someone takes them under their wing. Yeah. This is a world of it's not necessarily what you know. But who you know that really opens the doors for you. And I'm not saying that you don't have to know anything. But if you work on yourself, and you get everything in line that you need you continue to learn build yourself that other stuff follow. When you network and you find those right people that are really willing to reach back and help you up. So that last part is probably the most important, and I asked because you know, for instance, in the NFL they have a diversity coaching fellowship. Right. That was established back in the late eighties. But you haven't seen a pipeline of women marching into the league in coaching positions. Right. So where do you think it falls apart is the idea that well, we can't have a woman because she won't have pro experience or we can't have one 'cause she won't have coached enough. Or we can't like what follows that. We can't have a woman because it's an assumption that we can't have a woman because she's not as knowledgeable. She doesn't know the game. She doesn't have the experience, and that's my own opinion. Because no one's ever told me a woman can't. It's just what I observe. I think we live in a society where it's often assumed that men no things until they prove they don't, and it's assumed women don't know things until they prove they do and that hinders a lot of opportunities. We heard about your experience in the positive, meaning a coach takes you under his wing helps you as you work your way up what has been your experience in terms of encountering sexism. Like when you have maybe interviewed for other kinds of coaching jobs. What have you been told? I actually I won't mention what team it was. But I did interview with a team prior to coming to San Francisco and the interview went extremely well. And I sat down with one of the coaches, and he said that they were actually shocked by how much they really liked me. And. Said they would love to maybe open up opportunities for me down the road. But at that moment that they weren't ready to have a female on staff, and I absolutely respected their honesty because they could have easily just told me, you know, someone else was better fit for the position and moved on. But did they say why they weren't ready? They felt like they knew that. I had a background was Kyle Kyle Shanahan. He's head coach of the forty Niners. Right. And they felt like it was going to be a better situation for me to not pass up that opportunity the tech homeless. Kyle. Because you know, kind of like been there done that thing they know how it goes which teams will start to find. It's really not different to have a woman on staff. It's just like everybody else. But it's new, and and you know, it was interesting because I I told that to coach Turner whose are running backs coach, and we had some really interesting conversations just about some of the similarities that he faced, you know, as an African American male trying to get into the coaching world about forty years ago or forty seven years ago or something like that. So it was really a unique coversation, and I appreciated join through that experience. And but I know it's something that hopefully down the road other women won't have to encounter. That's Katie sours. She's an assistant coach for the San Francisco forty Niners. Thank you for sharing your story with us. Thanks so much for having me..

"And that's the problem that you're talking about fan bases are getting completely alienated by this tanking Accu had a really fascinating take on this in basketball as far as the draft. Everyone's not trying resign. And I've been trying to figure out ways for years to redo the draft and to give the league credit. They've made some changes in the lottery. So the bottom three teams all have the same chance that isn't solving the problem. You had an interesting look at this a couple of years ago about a way they could maybe completely revamped the system. Yeah. The assistant general manager of the Celtics Meigs Erin proposed an idea called the wheel where teams cycle through the thirty draft spots in. This is a basic explanation but year by year by year in a semi not random, but kind of jumbled order, so the idea is there is no connection between your. Where you pick. None. And I think it's a creative solution because as long as there's a connection between your record. And where you pick you can play with the you can play with whatever you can play with the waiting. There's still going to be an incentive to lose somewhere. Whether it's up to top or in the middle. They're still going to be an incentive to lose. That's one solution where there would not be any incentive to Jalen. How big a problem? Do you think this is for the NBA? We'll is unique to NBA. And that's a lot different for baseball to me. Here's why because baseball doesn't have a salary cap. Therefore, those owners can choose to spend or not choose to spend their choice in basketball and football for that matter with the salary cap, and I've talked about this a lot the anchor of your team is going to be usually somebody you drafted that just how it works. I wrote down some guys that won't multiple championships with teams they were all draft picks since magic in bird, chemo LaJoie, Michael Jordan, Tim Duncan Colby like all Steph curry like that guy becomes your anchor. So if you look at your squad, and you know, you don't have a superstar the only way you could get one. Is kind of like having a quarterback rookie deal in the league is to draft one. I believe that taking has a direct correlation of what we've seen in the NBA where fans are not fans of teams anymore and regions because you go through a spell where your team is actually terrible like Philadelphia through the process, you're you're a fan of players. You know what I mean?.

"And you. You can also go to our Facebook page or tweet us. Our Twitter handle is at forum. We go back to questions that I have with you Jeff mount about where the feds come into all this. I mean, it's pretty vague. Isn't it yet is of course, part of this is an accident of history. What most Californians I think don't appreciate is that the federal government came in and took over the central valley project in the in the depression when the state just couldn't fund it. And so now, the federal the federal government has been this partner managing one of the large water systems here, which is the central valley project, which routes water from Shasta reservoir, all the way all the way to southern San Joaquin valley. And then we have the state water project, which is run by the state in parallel. There isn't a rational economist. I know who thinks that's a good idea. And in fact this last year. CPIC one of our proposals for reform was to actually take over the central valley project from the federal government and unite the central valley project in the state water project into a single operation that can be run by the state this, of course, is a radical idea, but it's worth worth at least considering I think it would simplify our life to have less involvement in the federal government rather than more involvement of the federal government, at least at this point. Roger Patterson before I let you go just wonder what you have to say about one tunnel making sense financially. Can you pencil that out for us a bit from your? I think that for the state water project, which is the primary investor. It basically pencils out the same way as we were looking at our state project investment in tunnels, pretty close. So I think it will pencil out. Jeff mount said earlier he highlighted the struggle that some of the agricultural districts have being able to to make the economics work. And there are there are a good number of those that are part of the state project. So I think they'll still have to look long and hard. But I believe I believe we can put the financing together for a single tunnel project with with investors. Roger patterson. Thank you for joining us this morning. Good day with us. Thank y'all Roger Patterson, again assistant general manager for strategic water initiatives with the metropolitan water district of southern California. We could practice some big questions here. Lauren size configuration cost not really explained. Now. Everyone's waiting a little bit to see wherever Newsom administration is really going to take things. I mean there he's putting his stamp on this water issue. I mean, we had governor Brown pushing tunnels for his entire tenure. And this is a major Mark that he's trying to make. I think as Jeff has been talking about two. It's also just a really big moment for California's water in general. I mean, we had the drought. We saw how hard that was for everyone around the state, and since then there to spend all these different policies that Jeff talked about that have kind of in winding their way through and now they're all converging. How much water goes in rivers. How much water goes and Miguel to how much do we need for salmon? How much would go in this tunnel? I mean, we really juggling all these different processes that at some point do have to come together. And it's it's a very critical juncture that the new administration is taking over right now. Let me bring a caller aboard. Here we go first to you, Bob. Join us welcome. You're on the. Yeah. That's the same. Goes. We send our water LA base this bad movies. So my question to you is after all these years. Hopefully, doing some conservation building storms. More reservoirs. Why you're need more water? Can you explain that to me? And and why we need to suffer through this. Thanks. Thank you for the call. And the question. Let me go to you. Jeff. The first of all I have to comment on. We'll discussing the movie like the movies, first of all it's all our water. I this is a thing that California's don't realize nobody actually owns water in California. It's a public trust resource. You only on the right to use it. So it is all our water. The that's that's an important issue. But the statement more water, actually, I think this is this is a myth. We're actually not talking about more water when you look at all that environment at two hundred and fifty million dollars worth of environmental documentation that was put together for the tunnels. It wasn't going to result in more water. It was actually going to be just more reliable water. And that's what I think is happening. We've seen a long term decline in per capita. Use of water in the urban areas we've seen agricultural remained flat in their use of water. But at the same time making greater economic efficiency out of that water. We're not talking about more water. We're just talking about more reliable water. And we'll talk more about water and. About the tunnel..

Could Draymond Green vs. Kevin Durant make the Warriors stronger?
"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Could Draymond green versus Kevin Durant. Make the warrior stronger, Draymond green might have thrown his team into momentary crisis this week. But he also threw down the gauntlet to the rest of the league on Thursday after a team shoot around in Houston. If you're one of those other twenty nine teams in the league, you've gotta beat us. Green said in his first statement since being suspended for his argument with Kevin Durant. We not going to beat us. We're going to continue to do what we do. If you think you saw something before good luck with us. Now, we're not going to crumble off of an argument any may be right because the fairytale that the warriors have been living for the past few years is made up of living breathing ego driven players who are individually worth GDP of small countries. So of course, there are behind the scenes disputes and clashes this drama may have opened a much-needed steam valve may have released. Some of the pressure may have put everyone's cards on the table instead of having questions of free agency and player surpremacy lurking. In the background. This may make everyone take a hard look at themselves. Do we wanna be individual countries? Or do we want to show strength in numbers? Just us. This whole week has had the feeling of a past the area dispute Joe Montana versus DVR with a hint of adolescent, girl. Twilight mania team Jacob or team Edward do. We have to pick sides do the teammates have to pick sides. Probably not the members of the team have been living with these personalities and issues for longer than they've been exposed publicly the ability of green and Durant to walk into practice together on Thursday, talk fist-bump shoot together and play together against the rockets. Doesn't mean this is over not by a long shot. Green has reportedly appealed his fine. His harsh punishment this week by Steve Kerr and general manager. Bob Myers suspended one game without pay may continue to not him. Why was he punished so severely by leaders who have gone out of their way to have his back? It leads one to believe that Monday nights. Outburst wasn't an isolated incident. And that green has been pushing the envelope for awhile. Maybe even been warned repeatedly the encored incident that unleash this storm wasn't particularly noteworthy green was in the right on the court Duran looked selfish on the court. But it was the word set on the bench that revealed the Fisher. It's no secret. I'm emotional. Green said I wear my emotions on my sleeve. Sometimes it gets the best of me, and it doesn't work in my favor. But I live with that because works to the good more as my resume shows though, he vowed not to change on Thursday. Green was far more open and conciliatory in his comments than Durant was the other night. Durant may continue to carry a grudge. That's something. He's pretty good at basketball teams are studies and collective psychology. And the warriors have always had potentially combustible elements. Durant notoriously has thin skin. Green is an expert at finding the thinnest part of anyone skin to see if he can Pierce it. Both men are elite grudge holders and go out of their way to find things to feel. Victimized about to fuel them. I've had my own standoff with green I didn't understand why I was being frozen out. He was angry over something. I wrote and our relationship was initially rectified through a sitdown orchestrated by a warriors employee emotional and intense green is a warrior through and through a combination player assistant, general manager, welcome wagon Durant. In contrast is aloof. He is both by his arrival through free agency and his personality. More of an outsider green probably more than anyone else on the team has been irritated by the sense. That Durant is holding teams future hostage to his pending free agency. I've read a lot is this the end of the run did I ruin it. Or did I force Kevin to leave green said at the end of the day, whatever Kevin decides to do what clay decides we had great years together. I support everyone wholeheartedly one hundred percent as a man as a human being you've got the right to do what you wanna do with your life. Yes. That was the past tense. We had great years. Together. So maybe Durant does leave and maybe green will alternately be part of the reason. But maybe as most people are beginning to assume Durant was going to leave anyway. And this incident just got the issue out in the open put it on the dinner table where the family can deal with it. But this season isn't the past tense. It's the present. And maybe green is right instead of being gleeful that the warriors are in crisis. Maybe the rest of the league has to be even more worried about them now and Killian is a San Francisco Chronicle columnist Email a Killian SF chronicle dot com Twitter at an Killian.
