"Farragut's wear and 43° in Laurel at 7 41. Well, don't look now, but the commanders are on a roll, they're looking to capture their third win in a row and have won 5 of their last 6, and they're doing it with their scrappy underdog quarterback. Today they host the Atlanta Falcons at 1 p.m. here with a preview is sports director and commanders beat reporter George Wallace. Good morning, George, how are you? Morning Liz, good, thanks. So first question can the Taylor heinecke bandwagon keep on rolling alone? How about that? And look, there's no reason why it can't. I mean, it's proven that they're playing they're playing for this guy. They love playing for Taylor heinicke is a great story. And what he's been able to do right now with his offense to leave this team has been pretty remarkable. I mean, the fact that Carson Wentz was designated to return this week to practice, but Ron Rivera is saying that they're still riding with Taylor heinecke because the team's winning right now. So no reason to believe why they can not keep playing well with him because I think it's also, you know, they're playing within that they're not, you know, they've got nothing to lose at this point. I mean, they've won 5 O 6, as you mentioned, they're right on the outside of the playoff picture right now. They've got nothing to lose and they're playing some good football and they look to keep it going today. It's a very, very important game today, because these two teams are right there with each other in the NFC standings. And so how healthy is this commander's team as we go as we head into today's game? Oh, actually the team literally two minutes ago, three minutes ago, downgraded chase young to out. So he's definitely not going to play today due to it. Is it still the knee but also an illness or a bug kind of going around the team right now? So he's not going to play today. Losing Benjamin saint Jude this week is going to hurt in that secondary. He is out and Cole holcomb was placed on injured reserve with that foot injury that he's had the past three or four weeks. He's going to see a specialist. So the defensive side is a little banged up against the falcons team led by Marcus Mariota that can run the football. So I'm a little concerned about that. Offense seems to be okay, the Logan Thomas is questionable this week, but Ron Rivera said there's no reason why you shouldn't play. And everybody else should be fine on offense. Okay, and the falcon, the falcons, 5 and 6 on the year, but are they still dangerous? They are. They are, you know, Marcus Mariota's playing some good football. He was a free agent this past this off season that had the link to Washington as far as the quarterback is concerned, but he's playing well on the falcons are running the football pretty well too. But Washington is, look, I mean, the biggest strength right now is that defensive line up front. So Atlanta's strength in Washington strength should be a good battle today, but they are dangerous, especially if the weather who knows if the falcons can run the football if we do get all this rain today. It could be an interesting interesting game, but I think Washington is up for the challenge and look, if they get somehow can win their 6th game out of 7 and they're right there in the playoff spot with the Giants going to New York next week. So it should be interesting. Thank you so much, George. You appreciate your time. Speak to you next time. Sports director George Wallace, coming up on caps are on the road, but fall at the first stop. It's 7 44. The weight

"And Eric Harley You know, we also have another horrific mass shooting again tonight. And these never are something to be dismissed or just another one. But I'm going to tell you something. Tonight we're seeing that they're saying at least it appears at least 5 have been killed. In a mass shooting could be as many emptying different reports flash across the wire. Here we go from a looking like a TV reporter, Michelle wolf, let me see what her profile says she is a news reporter from WA vy. She says it may be as many as ten. Tonight. And it's a mass shooter. Let me tell you one thing. And we got three, four lines open for you. At 8 6 6 90 red eye, that's 8 6 6 9 zero 7 33 39. And one of the guys in the shooting said something tonight to one of the news entities. This was on mediate a guy named Barrett Hudson, who shot 7 times. He's one of the victims, he said, I talked to a friend of mine who's a drag queen. I said, you have to get a gun and protect yourself. I'm terrified for you. I don't have to, and the reporter at MSNBC asked we know that LGBTQ+ bars and clubs have been safe places for people to go in and in and of themselves whether they're a member of the community or not and you feel right now that you don't have that. I don't have that because one thing I noticed I have been around the world to a lot of gay bars and security is very slim. Security nowadays, some of them can carry weapons in some of them can't. I think that the LGBT bar, you have to get security. They can have carry a weapon. I think that would make a world of difference, not just a security guard, but like security guards that can actually be armed. I'm going to tell you this. You need to be armed. The first thing you should do when my Friends is a former marine and current police officer in metro Atlanta, he taught me years ago when I was there. He said, he taught me how to shoot and he said, first thing you do is train, then you get your gun. Otherwise, they will take away the gun and use it on you. I'm telling you, don't be a full train first, and then get your guns. And I am armed, I am on personally right now. I'm telling you, it's not like you're living in fear and walking around up here. You have it with you, so it's some terrorist strikes trying to pop you and drop you. You've papa dropped them first. What we need is more good guys with guns. Good guys and girls. Boys and girls, you know, guys and girls, a black, white, Asian, gay, straight, I don't care. I don't care if I disagree with what you do in your bedroom, I'll tell you what. The more of us that are on properly, the safer we are. You don't have to, if you don't want to. But don't try to take away our arms. So we got another shooting tonight. And you know the guy who has all the shows today. And he was at the gay bar in gay club in Colorado Springs when the shooting happened. And he just literally grabbed the gun out of the terrorist hands, knocked him down, and said to other people, get over here, help me, and they did. Is it help me? People are like just sitting there watching them. Do you understand? And I'm not knocking them. They're in shock. I'm a tell you something. 5 people died. And it could have been 25 people if one person didn't take some action. I'm not blaming anybody for not taking action. I'm telling you. That this is not going to stop regardless of who it is. And that we have to make up our minds before it happens that we're going to take action if we need to. The first thing you should do is get out. I want to tell you that. But if you can't get out, take action. And as an armed person, I've been trained to talk by people who know a lot more than I ever will know. And they say the first thing you do is get out, but if you can't get out, then try to and you try to get out into someone there, that's why you're armed. It's not to be a hero, not to place chair of bob and it's to protect yourself and to protect others if it's possible while you're trying to get out. Now you tell me what you blame. Democrats said it was guns yesterday. Now today they say it's you disagreeing with their lifestyle. They're blaming you. Either way they're saying take away your two of your rights. Your Second Amendment right yesterday and your First Amendment right today. All right, let's talk to Donna in Tennessee, Euron, red eye radio. How are you doing? Good Donna, thanks. All right, first of all, the guns are not the problem. The guns in the hands of the wrong people. That's the problem. I thoroughly do agree with strong background checks. Okay.

Dinesh and Debbie Discuss Michigan's Prop 3

"The results of the midterm election were, I would say only a disaster in the sense that we should have done so much better. Biden's policies have horrific effects. People a directly experienced those effects, so it should have been a complete wipeout. It's almost like one of those early battles of the Civil War where Lincoln would say in a sense, you know, why do we finish off the confederacy? Well, yeah, we were able to hold our own yahweh were able to advance a few yards or even a few miles, but we're not even close to taking Atlanta. Why is that? We have a much bigger army. We have much greater resources. And so we need to ask some tough questions of our own side as we think about what happened this week. Debbie joins me and Debbie has some interesting thoughts about two issues that have that we haven't paid a lot of attention to in part because we have strong convictions about them were kind of dug in on them, but they can be they can pose certain election problems for us. Honey, start by telling people about we were in Michigan for an event I did with Grand Rapids right to life was a tremendous great event 1300 people, but we learned a lot about this proposal three, which was coming up on the ballot, and in fact has now been voted upon, talk a little bit about proposal three, what it does, but also kind of the deceptive way that it's framed so that people are, they don't really know what it does. Right, so prop three basically gives Michigan Michigan women. The right to have an abortion at any time in their pregnancy, including 9 months. They also have, if it's a teen pregnancy, they do not need parental consent to have the abortion. So this is, you know, this is horrible. This is something that is a strike against the right to life. But they framed it very, they were very sneaky in the way that they used the language and the proposal. For example, they said that this proposal proposal three was the constitutional right to reproductive freedom. So when you say that, you are in essence saying, listen, the right to your reproductive freedom only belongs to you and your doctor, but it's between you and your doctor. The government has no right to tell you what when you can have an abortion when you can get contraception, et cetera, et cetera.

The day the night of the election when they shut down in Atlanta and they sat down in Pennsylvania and a lot of my talk at night our time. I knew there was something wrong. But I have a right to feel that way. I have a right and I'm so sick and I'm so fed up with this empty suit of a president telling me I'm a semi fascist. I am a middle aged soon to be older, woman who's just trying to do right. Right. And she writes in this world. And I am so set up with the gaslighting. I'm so set up with January 6th. I think it was Andrea Mitchell. I think maybe last Sunday, I saw snippets goes on CSN BC, watch this quote. Well, this talk Pelosi thing happened because of January 6th. Oh my God, you guys grow up. Do you remember what happened the summer of 2020? Do you know what they did to our city in Minneapolis? I won't go in Minneapolis anymore. I used to work there. I am career there. I was there all the time. I won't step foot in it. And I tell everybody not to go there. And then a woman who is going to do a convention there. I don't go to Minneapolis. Right. Hey, Julie, can I say something about what you pointed out about Andrea Mitchell trying to connect the Pelosi attack to January 6th? Forget Andrea Mitchell. You know who did it last night? Joe Biden. The president of the United States. It's hard. What about connecting January 6th to the summer of 2020? Doesn't anybody understand that maybe those people who were in D.C. were so frustrated watching what happened in Minneapolis and in DCD for that and in Portland and in Seattle and nobody talks about that. What about how they must have been feeling? Watching this happen to our country and our quote great leaders who love to gaslight us. And yet everything's about January 6th.

Latest Poll Shows Herschel Walker Ahead of Raphael Warnock

"I saw this morning this second accuser of Herschel Walker who claims that he orchestrated her abortion. Now she's, I think she's gone public. If I'm not mistaken, now she's identifying herself. So they're ramping up the claim that 30 years ago, Herschel Walker was involved in an abortion for his girlfriend. I don't know that this is working. In fact, I think it's backfiring because according to the polls, the last poll yesterday in the Atlanta journal constitution, Herschel Walker has a one point lead over Raphael Warnock. What's radical about Raphael Warnock is that he is a pastor, a pastor, one would think would represent life. A pastor would denounce late term abortion, Raphael Warnock, as we know, is pro abortion, including late term abortion, which is evil.

"Truly rowdy dragon. How about that? Actually, winning the stage was not the best thing on a road course. As this means my drivers might be struck back in traffic for the rest of the race, and they were. And your second stage winner goes to Cody E bright. This week's winner, we've got a 5 way tie. Starting with we the people. Kyle Busch sucks two three. While E coyote 500 returned to The Rock and worst to first. They all had 225 points. And somewhere around 23 bonus points, there was only one different lineup amongst those 5, but the rest all shared the same lineup. Well done, looks like you all figured it out. Now rowdy dragon finished in the 74th place, yet again, dropping a couple spots into the 22nd position on the overall leaderboard. Toby Christie once again got things figured out. Finishes in P38, moving up into the 28th position. Out on my heels. Harry Murphy, where's Jimmy? He finished in the 49th position. Brings him up to the 95th in the overall league standings. That's on the second page now. Good job, Carrie. All right, let's recap the drivers we had for road America pick for you. We took chase Elliott in the 9 car. Austin centric in the two car and Michael McDowell and the 34. Chase Elliott dominated on the date, but came home second place on the race, finishing third in the overall standings, link Brie, stage points somehow, which are just bonus points because running up front normally you don't get any of those on a road course. Austin cindric in the two car, he finished in the 7th position, pulling 9 stage points, your second best driver pick for the fantasy points. And Michael McDowell finished in the 8th position on Sunday. Didn't collect any stage points, but was the 11th best driver in the fancy standings. So overall not a bad day for road America. Hopefully these pics were able to help you out a little bit. Okay, moving on to this week's race Atlanta Motor Speedway. Got some featured pics for you here, starting with the 45 car of Kurt Busch. I was looking at whose good statistically overall at Atlanta, and who finished well in March, that put Kurt Busch on the top of my driver picks this week. He closed out Atlanta in P three in the spring, and that puts him in P four for fantasy points. Kurt has one of the best average finishes at all super speedway tracks with a 17.2, but Daytona is not his strongest track, which is about the best track to compare to Atlanta. So let's take a look at his overall stats on super speedways. He's got 32 races. With an average finish of 14.6, 9 top 5s, which is a 28% chance at a top 5, 17 top tens, that's a 53% chance at a top ten. He's led 551 laps. He's got four wins in those 32 races that's a 12.5% chance at a win. And his stage point picture looks like this. He's collected stage points in 8 out of 14 tries at Atlanta. One of those was a stage win. Now one thing to consider, it will be a very hot race in maybe some ranks, similar to what we had at Nashville, and the Toyota's were very dominant until they weren't. With their silly pit strategy and the only Toyota not to play along was Kurt. He finished in P two. Looking at our second driver, the 48 car Alex Bowman. I'm not going to throw any averages out there for you today and with Alex, his loop data is what caught my eye. He had the 8th best driver rating back in March, 5th best in fastest laps with 11 laps. He was the fastest car on restarts. If he isn't a good track position late in a run, this should bode well for the 48 car. He was 7th best in green flag passes with 263 fourth best green flag speed 157 quality passes put him in 12th and Alex was best in speed by segment. Unfortunately, in the Nashville heat, Bowman was the first car out of the race when his tire blew. So not much to go off where the heat of the day was concerned. Just a little nugget for you there. And looking at our third driver. The 12 car Ryan Blaney we'll look at his overall stats over here at Atlanta. He's got 8 races run there. His average finish is 13. He's got three top 5 and three top ten, both at 38% chance. He's got 83 laps led with one win. And out of the 14 stages run at Atlanta, Ryan Blaney has 8 with points. One of those was a stage win. Now Blaney had a little incident at the last race here, scrubbing the wall, finishing 17th in March, but that stage one I just mentioned put him in tenth for the fantasy rankings. And looking at some of Ryan Blaney's loop data. His average running position P two with an 8.1, he had the third best driver rating, fourth fastest, late in a run. He had the 8 fastest laps run with ten second fastest on restarts. He was the 11th in green flag passes, the first in green flag speed. He was third best in running in the top 15. 7th in lapse lead. Blaney was 8th in quality passes and fourth best speed by segment. We should see a pretty good battle this weekend between these three cars and don't forget those Toyota's ran so good at Nashville and that heat. They could show back up again. Keep an eye on those practice and qualified times. Those should help you determine your drivers for your lineup of this weekend. We have a pretty heated battle going on in the league between the top two. They just won't leave their position, dugong, got a little bit of a lead over Louisville max, but

I didn't go the extra step to see where I finished. Why would we do that? No, I just saw all my drivers at like 30 plus points. I'll take that. That's a good day. That's a good day.

Yeah, man, we added a new person to the staff this week to cover IndyCar with this Christopher to hardy has been added to the stuff. Joining Joey Barnes over there in the IndyCar section. That's pretty cool. I mean, you are just growing like crazy. Yeah, and we elevated Joseph shrigley, who's been doing these shrigley stats. I'm sure you've been seeing. He has actually been elevated to managing editor of the website. Oh my gosh. Nobody's getting promotions. I know. I'm still just a lowly host. Well, you're doing well. You're doing great at it. Oh. Okay. So I should do poorly, though. If you do poorly, you really go up the chain a lot faster. So we are going to be talking about road America. Road course racing, NASCAR Cup Series, in action. Well, kind of some action. Yeah. The Xfinity series had a little more action actually. Yeah, although, you know, even though it lacked the kind of craziness of the Xfinity race, I still felt like the battle for the wind was pretty good. And it didn't feel like even though there wasn't any natural cautions throughout the race, it didn't feel like a weird lull was happening. It still felt somewhat exciting. Wait, it's still going on though, right?

And then we get an email from his PR person. Can you not have that in the interview? Can you please cut that? Yeah listening in. We don't like that one. I think I would let him off the hook and give him the answer and make him look like a rockstar. Because you know how I work. That's true. You do like softballs. You don't like awkwardness or putting somebody on the spot. Right, no, no, I want to be nice to people. Yeah. All right, so I've been out of the show for a little while. You did Joey? Joey, Joey, he's done. You could tell, I checked out and I was just kind of winging it there. So we're at number 7 now, Ryan Blaney. Yes, we are number 7. Last one on the countdown. All right, Ryan Blaney three wins, 11 top 5s, 20 top tens, 423 laps lead, and we love having him on the show. Let's hear from Ryan Blaney. Yeah, I thought it was a good year for us. You know, we had three wins, like I said and executed really well. And honestly, I thought we kind of could have won two or three more, just didn't happen. But yeah, I definitely thought it was a probably the strongest year we've had. I've personally had from just a win perspective. The shame the way it ended. I thought we had a good shot of making it to Phoenix and just that's the way racing goes. But yeah, a really good year and excited bittersweet. End with a really good year and todds last year. Now we have to reset and do it all over again. And I have been working really well together, tests and hopefully we can have an even better season 2022. Yeah, highs and lows and the highs are obviously the wins and things like that. There's great and the low moments is getting knocked out at Kansas and they're not running well Martinsville and not making the championship four. I thought we definitely could have done that this year. Kind of an opportunity missed, but none of our doing and just the way it is where it goes sometimes. But a good year though for us, obviously would like to finish a little bit higher end points, and obviously have more wins, but can't get too greedy. I think the next big goal is just getting to Phoenix. That's the biggest thing personally for me and our group just got to get the Phoenix have been in the championship for yet. That's the next step and hopefully we can accomplish that. So this is a stat right here. This is the first year in Ryan's career, he got multiple race wins. Yeah, he's one erase for several seasons in a row now. I think maybe 5 or 6. Yeah. But this is the first time he won multiple in one year, and he won three. And he had a little bit of a hot streak going there for a little while, so pretty good. Pretty good stuff there for Ryan Blaney. And three very different kind of racetracks Atlanta. Michigan and Daytona. Yeah, the Michigan and Daytona was really close to when the playoffs were starting obviously Daytona was the last race before the playoffs started. It was like, man, this guy is carrying some momentum. Could he get this thing? Could he all of a sudden be the championship favorite? Things did kind of falter down the stretch, but man, he really had a really good season. I think Ryan Blaney and that number 12 Penske team have got to be pretty excited about what they might have going into next season. Yeah, for sure, for sure, and new teammate, too, so. You got that. Plus, you know? He's always awesome to have on the show. He is. That's why we've had him on like 40,000 times. Him and Justin Allgaier lead the pack in terms of appearances on this show. And I think that will not change going into next year. I think they will continue to go neck and neck for that title. I hope so. Yeah, definitely. For sure. So I think that wraps up for this week our look at the top 16 playoff drivers in the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series season. So next week, where are we going to kick off at number 6? And I have a feeling I have a feeling we are going to find out who the champion is. Okay. I think so. I think you might be onto something there. If you don't know who the champion is for 2021, don't look it up. Don't use the Google. Just wait for us. We'll take care of it. Okay. There it is. You think there's anybody out there who doesn't know? Probably not. Okay. Like, oh, I can't wait. Who's gonna who's gonna be the champion? I can't wait. Even if they listen to our show, their avid listens are listeners of our show. They already know. They should at least. Maybe they're new. They're brand new. And they're like, I'm going to give this NASCAR. I think I tried, but I'm only going to listen for when the final app tells me what the results were. Yes. There could be one person. I didn't hear it as it was happening live because I wasn't a fan yet, but now I'm only going to listen to things from one of my fan and I don't want to know the results yet. I still.

"In chief at Toby Christie dot com. Hey. Hey, that's me. Yeah. You like in his off season, are you? Hey, you know, I'm actually getting a little bit of an off season now, so that's nice. Right. Spend the holiday weekend and part of the week or whatever in Atlanta with the sister in law and the nephews and landing it to play with this cousin. So that was all fun. It was a good time. All right, yeah, you're heading down there a lot. These days how far is that? It's only four hours, so it's not bad. Oh, okay. Yeah, four hours is easy. Yeah, that's good. So road trip in it. Road trip in it, man. Road trip in Atlanta. It's finally starting to get comfortable enough in a car where you can just sleep, which is great. Oh, that is to refuse. Just would not. Yeah, that's like me on an airplane. I can't do that. We've talked about this. Man, airplane is the best place to sleep. It just, I can not even on a trip to Europe. I can not go to sleep. Airplane sleep is the best sleep except for every time I do it. I end up with a Charlie horse on my leg. And it happens in the middle of my sleep, and I'm like, I'm stuck in this confined spot. Right. And so I was looking at you like what? Yeah, so I'm trying to stretch leg out and trying to also be like calm where people don't notice I've got a problem. But I'm stuck in there. I'm not ever on the end. I'm always in the middle or at the window and I'm like, I'm stuck, great. Dime dying. Wow. I had one trip. One trip in my entire life, it was an overnight trip and we took off. I fell asleep and the next thing you know we were landing. Wow. That was awesome. It was like a time machine. It's like a portal, man. How great is that? I wish that would happen every time, but sadly, no. So why is it that you can't fall asleep on airplanes? I don't know. I'm not scared of flying or anything. It's just, I don't know if it's the noise or sitting upright or I don't know what it is. Just sometimes I just, most of the time I can't do it. Interesting. I knew I woke up one time on a flight. From Vegas back to Texas and it was when Texas had been icing over. And so I woke up with some turbulence and I was like, okay, and I woke up and I heard what was happening and they kept taking attempts at trying to land and they would hit the ground, but the ice would make it where they couldn't stop. And they just have to go and you'd film pull back up and go super round again. I was like, that happened like three or four times. I'm just sitting there looking at Christa sleeping. I'm like, I don't want to even wake her. If we die, we die. It's okay. That's not worth it. It's not right. Just let her be peaceful. You haven't even flown that much in your life. No, I've known you when you've taken your first flight. Yeah, so I think that was actually my second flight ever. So that was kind of interesting. First or second, I don't remember, but I think it was second. And I was like, wow, this is what it's all like, huh? Awarded landings over and over, right? Right. All right, well let's get into some news of the week. Cue the music. Music is cute. I don't think we've dusted this piece off for a while. Yeah, that music is.

The new really capital of the south people are flocking to atlanta to build their businesses to find economic opportunities or political opportunities. This is also sort of the start of what becomes known as the great migration. And so i think people are familiar with black people moving from the south to the north. But they're also moving from rural areas to urban areas and so this is where atlanta really takes off. Its black population grows exponentially. So they have you know. Black population were about nine thousand. People at this time in that number jumps all the way up to thirty six thousand black people in the year. Nineteen hundred you. Have you know popular thriving prosperous black businesses and communities and often times that becomes the recipe or the secret ingredient. For these mob attacks we've seen in in tulsa or saint louis or chicago other black communities that experience these massive mob attacks. It feels to me like in every decade atlanta is the quote unquote capital of the new south. At some point you just have to acknowledge it as not but you don't take into the nineteen nineties you had the conversation about atlanta's new cultural defining force and certainly in the two thousand ten's and now it's like no other yeah. I think it's like you could make an argument even right now that atlanta's the most important cultural city in the country but anyway it's interesting thing to think about as as a through line for that city and at the forefront of a lot of economic shifts. I mean this is something we'll see going into even the nineteen fifties and sixties atlantic. It's this reputation as the city too busy to hate because Economic and business leaders are not too busy to hate. but they're definitely trying to find ways to make atlanta's seem more welcoming So that it can attract more business and so that idea that it's just kind of a little bit ahead of where other economic centers in the south are. I think really give it this this reputation as much more cosmopolitan so in one thousand nine hundred six. There is a gubernatorial election. Going on at that point between two white men But part of that conversation. And i think it sets up. The context here is explicit rhetoric about disenfranchising black voters. So there's a economic element to this which we can get to. But then there's also very much a post reconstruction jim. Crow element of there are too many political rights and we are going to start to snap back on that And the the politician that is willing to go the furthest in disenfranchising black people is likely the one that's going to be the most successful so instead of trying to court black votes it was. How can we shut down black people from voting altogether and after this massacre they pretty much achieve just that black voting plummets after this and really doesn't recover until the voting rights act of nineteen sixty five so this is a moment in which you have a lot of southern cities changing their by laws changing their their political and social institutions to essentially promote white supremacy wholesale. It's such an important reminder that often when we talk in terms of eras of history we say reconstruction ended in eighteen seventy seven and you have this new redemption era but the process of constructing. The jim crow state takes decades right. You have these early laws that are in the eighteen seventies eighteen eighties that are beginning to segregate public spaces but those are happening in piecemeal patent ways. You're having violence. That is trying to drive down the black vote. But you don't necessarily have the legal structures in place so this nineteen o six moment is a reminder that that process of disenfranchisement is one that's still underway and that is being put into a fact by violence In addition to laws. I'm so glad you brought that up. Because i actually i was having trouble in in writing the intro to this. About like what era we refer to this as like what are the hallmarks of and yes. It's all a continuum of fluid and this isn't exactly what wikipedia would tell you post-reconstruction this isn't exactly. Pd would tell you jim crow but it has all those those hallmarks so yeah. It's like the building blocks of these. Riots are tragically familiar so you have a a newly empowered black community attempts to disenfranchise. There's the economic element of black businesses and on the ground economic empowerment. That is taking place in. That is making a lot of white people very nervous but then the spark as is often the case is these allegations of sexual violence And that seems to be so often at the heart of the thing that that sparks these these quote unquote race right. Yeah these often unsubstantiated rumors that get thrown out there and they stick and so they were allegations of sexual assaults. None of which could be proven. But that's all you need is really the rumor. The idea thrown out there then people can pounce And i think this is where the press comes really into play because the press really becomes like clarion on call for the mob to attack certain communities to let people know what's what's happened or what they believed happened and then people use that and take it all the way to the extreme and so and to state the obvious this is. These are allegations of black men assaulting white always. That's all that's always. The narrative is black. Men sexually assaulting white women even when there are no credible allegations or anything of that nature that that is what almost always pops these things off. Yeah and that's definitely the story for lynchings as well as these massacres. Which is a tell the individual lynchings and mass murders like. This are on the same continue on the part of the same project. I'm in this case we should add in as Causation jody you. Mentioned the nineteen o six gubernatorial race. Both of the men who were running in addition to wanting to strip rights away from black people There were newspaper editors so they were part of this press that kelly is talking about that was printing these lert accusations and trying to stir people up to act right to to engage in violence against these black communities. And it's all part of a big change happening in the press and when you had newspapers since the start of the united states but now you have these tabloid newspapers this kind of yellow journalism. That try they try to outdo one another in order to increase sales by just pushing it further and further and further. so it's Telling the most sort of over the top stories spreading the craziest rumors in order to provoke the most violence and even sometimes advertising lynchings zane win multi place or when a mob attack will take place to put people on notice we are familiar with ida b wells but this is where she really uses journalism to push back against this and to say like you know basically. I'm calling bs. On all of these allegations you are using these rumors of sexual assault to wreak havoc in the black community and she uses journalism to say how many of these cases are unfounded. But by then you know the the damage is done in the black community. The destruction has already begun. The businesses are already destroyed. Its churches that are targeted black schools. Hcc us at this time that are targeted. Atlanta's known for being a hub of black education. So you have spelman. You have more house. You have clark atlanta university and morris brown college They're all right there in the heart of downtown atlanta and so to lay out some of the the beats of this particular incident right. We have on september twenty second newspaper allegations. Come out by that very evening. There are thousands of white people going down to some of the predominantly black neighborhoods such as five points and starting to you know indiscriminately attack. Black men women and children as they're walking by attack as you said businesses universities right if the just to state the obvious here but if this sort of precipitating allegation is about a couple of men committing assault burning down. Black barbershop doesn't seem to be a commensurate response there. There's something else going on right. And so we're starting to see this violence and this fever spread in this way. We've talked about this before but reminds us so much like for instance tulsa or whatever you know it's like you have these specific allegations specific anger and then it goes to what was referred to in tulsa as black wall street. But you know goes to the center of economic and community empowerment and and attacks that there's another really interesting moment that has echoes for me of of tulsa in some of these other stories which is then in response to this you know in the next day or two a group of black men and community members start to gather and start to arm themselves to protect and that gets used as an excuse for even more violence because oh look now there's now they formed a militia that was actually the precipitating story i believe in tulsa was. It was rumors of violence. Black men than taking up arms to defend their community and then that being used as an excuse for actual violence. Because look look who's armed themselves. Look who is inciting violence. This is when wkbd boies who's living in atlanta decides to sort of change his tune in pick up arms to defend himself his wife his household. It's an incredibly scary time to be living in the city when things like this pop off and so black people had to defend themselves but it sort of a double edged sword because the moment you go to defend yourself is also the moment that you make yourself even more vulnerable to additional attack right and this is also the moment when you know it starts off as this white vigilante mob but then the state militias called in and the state militia functionally becomes an extension of the mob and away so it comes down to in order to restore order but it is particularly active when Black men began arming themselves. And you end up with mass arrests you end up with two hundred and fifty people being arrested but all the people who were arrested. Were african american There is no record of any sort of arrest or punishment of any of the thousands of white people Who engaged in murder over the course of these days and we still don't know exactly how many people died or how many people were harmed. Those numbers vary from twenty five to one hundred plus people because they counting of these types of mobs was never done to keep an accurate record. It was always meant to sort of suppress how many people were killed in the amount of violence or damage that occurred. That's just the fascinating thing about tulsa to right the the death count ranges so widely And you just it makes your little antenna go up. And you're just like why is the official count so low and the unofficial count so high. I mean it almost reminds me of that episode. We did about attica. Recently where you see narrative you know the seizing of the narrative and the framing of the narrative in the very moments after so critical. And you know who's framing that we as we've pointed out the newspapers are such a huge part of the story and who's going to frame that narrative who's going to report the quote unquote facts and figures of how many people died and so forth and it just is all an extension from the kind of way it gets cast in those initial moments as we start to wrap up though there there are some interesting contours here of kind of the aftermath of this. I mean it does seem like this was a tragic event. This was early in what we can call it. An era of racial and political violence nevertheless in atlanta itself. It does seem like this was a bit of a wakeup call to some communities. And they're worse. What seemed to be genuine conversations between black and white leaders in the aftermath of this to say look how do we prevent something like this from happening again And i think this is interesting. Because a few years after this you get the founding of the nwc p. and wbz boys who was in atlanta during this mob becomes one of the main founders of this organization as well as other people who experienced you know violent massacres and and racism wholesale in their communities they become charged to create the national association for the advancement of colored people And right before that you have the niagara movement. That's about the same time about nine thousand nine hundred nineteen six as well so you have the creation of these black organizations or organizations for people of color to to sort of stop or halt or arrest a lot of this political and economic violence. Yeah it's a real pivot point for civil rights leadership For black rights in the us. Because so many people. I mean you've mentioned wbz boys but like walter white All of these people who have this as a foundational moment in the way they think about racism and power and how civil rights have to be pursued in the united states. That it's not going to be enough to do. Kind of a slow was often called an accommodation. Est approach to this that you're going to need something more dramatic and something more radical because the tools that the other side is willing to use include Just incredible amounts of violence. It's in atlanta will booker t. Washington gives his famous atlanta compromise speech about accommodation and about sort of like lifting yourselves up by your bootstraps. And i think this is interesting. Because you have alonzo hurt in. Who's like the first black millionaire. Because of his successful barbershops his businesses are targeted and destroyed. And it just lets you know that you can be a black millionaire and still not shielded or protected from the mob and that this accommodations approach really does not hold up or that make you more of a target. You know right. Yeah oh yeah. Oh yeah even more even more. So one other wrinkle here is that the atlanta evening news which was really the kind of most notorious Newspaper at the time. That really ratcheted up. Tensions ahead of this Stopped publishing in the wake of this. I don't know if people knew the phrase d platforming at that moment but you know it's a reminder that sometimes you know these mouthpieces of haven division are the thing that actually needs to be addressed and so the atlanta evening news did did go away after that not to imply that things were soft or anything but yes some real sort of like as you're saying pivot and transformational moments here all right well. Let's leave it there Thanks again to ross for suggesting this. Keep the suggestions coming couple. Also on this days This is september twenty third eighteen. Ten nikki this was the day of the when the republic of west florida declared itself independent. We did an episode about that. Last year was very fun. Lives on in. My heart was short. Lived a very short lived but they did come up with the most boring flag. Ever and an unsuccessful attempt to declare themselves an independent republic nevertheless also west florida nevertheless yeah it. Nevertheless west florida in so many ways remains independent if not on on paper in spirit so And then nineteen fifty two. We've got actually a bunch of emails about this. We will find a time to do. It may have to wait a year. We'll find another. But this was the day in which nixon delivered his famous checkers speech. Which was a speech about campaign finance but he actually referred to his dog checkers in it and basically everyone just picked up on the dog reference. And that's because campaign. Finance is not the most scintillating of topic. Here's a picture of a dog internet. We will do. We will do the checkers speech at some point All right well that brings us to the end of the episode nicole hammer. Thanks to you as always thank you. Daddy and kelly carter jackson.

"Depends on the results of the vote that is happening on. Yeah yeah that will be. Yeah this as you guys said. It was going to be a very serious turning point in figuring out what to do next. Let's let's for four change. Let's be optimistic as just a fun practice that might of what if magically or not magically because you've put a lot of a lot of hard work but like what they do now and and they and they don't they don't build projects do see any future for like the coalition like billy having having all these groups work together. Do see taking up any other kind of projects because like you know getting a network like this is very very useful and unique is at times at times very difficult. Do you see any other kind of organizing the potential for having this interconnected kind of group of people. I honestly can't see a world where we don't continue to have these conversations and we don't continue to together and we don't continue to happened to this beautiful system of collective care. Because honestly i it's felt like rushing to the finish for the last three months that like after we're like focused on a particular campaign or particular shooters going to be other things to worry about. But i'm really hoping personally that we're going to be able to take some time to slow down in process in have conversations and talk about what does supporting each other actually gene but disappointing people in a localized substantive. Intersectional manner actually look like so my hope and my wish. My goal is is absolutely yes. I hope that will continue to work together in in lots of different ways on on on lots of different projects because they don't really know what what At least for sunrise. You don't really know what we're going to focus on next There's definitely a lot of work to do. And i think just like what's really been powerful about this. Many people coming together and this demonstration of people power is that we're starting to shift the narrative the narrative that protection control equal safety in understanding. The actually means it's not just summarizing community within india say like a couple of environmental groups. It's groups that have been doing mutual aid work groups that have been directly on the ground like an end groups that have been working and fighting in in all these like tangible ways to just get access to food and water and transportation and the things that we actually need so i think that in terms of like actually shifting the narrative in diverting resources to winning need to be diverted coalitions are powerful twelve and will continue to use them seconded to all that i mean. I think that while we each have our respective work spec- and be the are black radical organizations dedicated to liberate. his own. Theory are now are organizing within the pittsburgh neighborhood of atlanta but even as you can see this issue with cop city We know custody isn't necessarily in pittsburgh but it was the same. Apd officer killed restart brooks in our neighborhood last year right. So these all issues are fall under the umbrella of Capitalism racial capitalism with affects all of us so when it comes to these types of issues we have to work in coalitions. Because that's what's going to be able to make us be that much stronger because we all are affected by these these these intercessional systems so I definitely think that you know while it might not be on every single project that we work on with each other on. Because we all have our specialties in our nisha areas of work When it comes to intercessional issues like this are big. That are that affect all of us. In different ways i could definitely is being able to work within coalitions and continuing that momentum and work that we built this city effort. Is there anything you want to say to people who are outside of atlanta any way they can show support. I think one thing that i hidden add that maybe is a little more. Generalized is I know that there's a lot of fear right now. And there's a lot of anger right now. There's a lot of hurt right now. And it feels like our rights are being attacked on every front with you. Know roe v wade in texas and issues like caught city in militarization extension of policing in the in all of these things that i know that it can seem very daunting and i guess my minding i want to say to people is. This is not the time to disengage. Everybody you who supports and seeks to promote in his protected by the status quo wants you to engage. Don't do it come fight with us in your community in our community anywhere. We need you down of absolutely. I will double down on that foot. Yeah we could say that again and again that is appoint that always needs to be really reiterated more often yeah Is there any is. Is there any place. People can do any financial support from from far away that people can assist either through legal funds or various other means. Yes so. I knew a few novick screen w- abilities. We have a donate pages. Go to our website community movement builders dot org a donate tab. You can donate directly through there. You can also donate to our cash up cash out. Dad's dollar signs. Cmb rg org Also atlanta bell fund is always important resource if folks are taking a resume different directions in different protests I've had several comrades who have Gone we've taken arrests for variety you've for a variety of actions and We do rely on that as a source of for us to be able to make sure that we're still able to know live and breathe survive on the day in this capitalist at racist Country in i wanna plug donating to and supporting the at in a homeless union.

Like you mentioned like perception among people being aware of this project but have you seen anything else happen whether on like whether you know through little like legislative process or just through like coverage. Yeah like what. What is so the major. The major win is the is the postponement in the vote. Like this was supposed to be voted and passed. It was going to be past three weeks ago right and for for them to delay it and frankly even said it. They delayed it because they were like. We're getting too much negative pressure. We want to get may wants to do more public opinion. Basically wants to put more propaganda out there for the police And try to have another vote when we think that we can get more people on our side because this election season for atlanta too so allow worry about their seats and they know that we made a lot of noise about it and the rebound allow news coverage about it. We got a lot of people talking about this and so at this stage. They're afraid that know they couldn't do this on Under the darkness and so now people know about it in are upset about it. So i think that in of itself as a again. This is the first time this has happened in the city of atlanta Periods where the city council been scared based off of a community based organizing particularly when it has to come to anything to do with policing by lane is the most surveilled city in the country. right our police force people talk about it being the black mecca. People talk about it being a black haven for black hollywood a black a- haven for black folks it is the most surveilled place in the in the in the country and city in the country and is also. We're nowhere close to being a stranger to police brutality. Police killings And we've seen that You know. I can name a list of names. Just like of the you know have been murdered by the police in the past three years right. So yeah. I think that i mean i think organizer joe grin organizer. Question is playing for people who've been working on this is like where were you. august sixteenth. Where were you when it happened when the vote was actually pushed because that demonstrated a huge win for the people it was. Like you know organizers in atlanta and this community and this Outcries these conversations in the anger. It all culminated in this beautiful moment where they said like we kept. Pass this right now like we actually do it at for me. I was at a book of eating. I saw on twitter in. My brain was buzzy for the next hour because Never happened before that was just. It was beautiful and yeah and just like having these conversations is this. Another impact story went national There was an article in the inner stop having conversations like this one and just like and just being able to tie this to like like. I've said a few times during the during this time recreation just the that culture That culture that that like okay ness with big stock shin exploitation of the land and resources in people and being able to take this story national and take the story to other places in say like this is what happens in communities. Look into your own and see if it's happening there like that is so inspiring not that's what builds movements so. That was a really powerful win. Yeah something like having having. That results is incredibly rare for for something like that right like that is not something that happens often that should be celebrated of based on. What what you've been able to do so far. What is the fight gonna look lake going forward in the next in the next few weeks Is is there a date that they're planning to vote again already or is that still kind of up in the air. Yes so the voting in on tuesday right so That's why you know we're still fighting all the way up until the end I think that at the end of the day We have to recognize that You know pressure campaigns like this are important. We have to be able to do them. But we also have to be able to put our bodies on the line to just if if the city council because again. This isn't a up to a vote of the people. This is a vote of corporate interests that are and city council members who are tied to corporate interests so they ultimately can still vote even people for it even if the people don't want this to happen right and so i think it also has to be even after the vote. That fight does it. Let's say if it does pass right. We're hoping that doesn't if it does pass. That means the fight doesn't end at that point. That means that are that the owners is on the people for us organiz even more because that means we bodies on the line and that means that we have to physically say y'all not building issue period and that's the next step in the campaign. Oh speaking this meeting four. No myself at this point. I can't speak for the whole coalition on this on this pace. But i think a lot of us are in the same are in the same boat. That after this vote we still are in this fight wetter. Whatever the regardless of what the outcome is and there's a lot of different avenues in terms of like direct action than land defense in working more with indigenous communities on the issue and lawsuits environmental angle. And even just the city council angle of just voting out. Everybody who voted. Yes and there's there's a lot of different ways to take action.

"atlanta" Discussed on It Could Happen Here

"Could happen here daily garrison and today. We have a special emergency of release episode. I know a lot of news has happened in the past week. And we will be covering that later on in this week. But this episodes can relate to some A current events happening today as of the release date of this episode and stuff that could be affected in the future. So i had the opportunity last thursday to interview some people working with the defend the atlanta forest coalition to coalition of activists who are working to prevent the deforestation project going on in southeast atlanta. Now in the interview. They mentioned some actions on friday. That have already happened as of recording. They did not happen so they they mentioned those actions coming up. But there's also actions coming up on tuesday september seventh because that's also the day that the city council is going gonna vote whether to continue with the deforestation project or not so this tuesday. There's going to be actions that if you're in atlanta you can be a part of guess talked about in the episode so just a heads up prefer timelines in case that gets a little confusing anyways. that's enough me talking. So here is the interview with people from the defending atlanta forests coalition. Hello and welcome. Today we are going to be Interviewing some people who are working with and help with the atlanta forest defense project. That is ongoing. If you're unfamiliar with this will learn about it. Here in the interview but first off. I i chris here to help to help me today. And i'd like to introduce the people. Were talking with jamal to start. Yes as my name is jamal Working organizer with community movement builders we do. Our main goal is building self-sustainable black communities we will basically replaced based organization at least for the atlanta chapter in the pittsburgh neighborhood of atlanta. We do different chapters across the country all doing place based work in their respective areas. Um we are we we've gone onto this coalition with atlanta forest defense But particularly because with this particular area you know it's While you're just destroying three hundred eighty acres of land in the purpose of doing it is to Build a mock cops city. Right is a mock city of of atlanta in order to essentially practice militarize warfare on the atlanta's residents and so While all of us are really concerned about the deforestation that's happening the other layer of of what we're dealing with is also a immediate threat to a particularly to black communities in atlanta the poor working class these here in atlanta. Thanks for having me on. I'm shehzada. I am one of the hub coordinators of the atlanta chapter of the sunrise movement. Which is a movement of young people working to stop climate change in create good jobs in the process I think that draw it released. Well and that This issue with forks defense would stop being this facility from being built it really is it really does have to produce. It's an issue. Very uniquely at the intersection of racial environmental justice because on one hand. It's an extension of bully staying at a city that does not need more police than on the other hand. It is a systematic of unfettered capitalism ingred exploitation that causes all this environmental devastation. So i'm really excited. I think we have to really good problems of a Of the of the conversation in the argument against ordinance. Yeah and i think a lot of people don't realize how would i like usually when i think atlanta i don't think of a very like force density of but it absolutely is. That's just not something that really gets highlighted. A lot nationally is how how green atlanta really really is. And of course guys want to talk about. I've i've i've i've never been to atlanta. Do i want to talk about kind of how the city's like laid out an olive like you. know how. How the forest intersects with the with the city. Absolutely so yeah. Atlanta's essentially a city that was built in the middle of of forest Like i live. I live in pittsburgh neighborhood in atlanta and Lilius trees green greenery. All over the place. i come home. I'll see on my screen door. There's a frog that's just chilling there So it's not your typical like urban city in a sense of what people think of like particularly think of lake cities in the northeast But it really is a city in the middle of a forest And i think it also ties in like again talking about Environmental racism Intersecting with ino we'll talk barbarism period right and deforestation What we see is that because it's in the middle of four is and what does the forest do it protects us from flooding protects the protects us from all all these different natural disasters that we're seeing across the world across our country right now for example but even locally hit very hard by The you know the hurricanes but any time it rains my Like my block. Floods right because this because You know the force has been removed to be able to to make way for you know different types of infrastructure being built from my perspective. It's been like a lot of changes to atlanta's kind of whole economy in in a lotta ways the past like ten fifteen years specifically with the film industry moving into in georgia and atlanta specifically in the past twenty and this this doesn't intersect with. What's going on does he. Does anyone want to speak on that. I would say that it's really good to note that. Atlanta has the most amount of tree coverage out of any major metropolitan area in the united states. Oh wow i didn't. I didn't know that either l. And we say city afforest swimming in data and we we have greenspace be wanna preserve but The the forest defence also been highlighting like the ties between policing and corporate elites crazy ios in people who want to move in and push development projects in something similar happening blackhawks studios like you said the expansion of like the media industry in all of that into atlanta it leads to gentrification of communities of really really recently at anna just became.

"Patience to get it done there by the end of the weekend cow just may have his first atlanta win behind him. If you haven't used all your cow picks this is a good time to use the five car. He will most definitely be my lineup. Now a second guy to look at is the eighteen of cow bush. He seems to be the best of the gibbs guys right now and looking back four races kyle has top ten finishes and has wrecked upstage points in all but one stage in all those races kyle has to atlanta wins behind him and with that recent pocono win. The team knows they have what it takes to beat the hendrick camps. So it's a good time to consider kabua's for your lineup. And finally we'll look at the number one car of kurt busch. He's got three wins at atlanta. The second most laps lead among active drivers. He has a fifteen point. Four average finish their. He did right out here in march earlier this year. But you'll have to look back five races before he finishes outside of the top ten and you have to actually look all the way back to two thousand nine before he finishes outside of the top thirteen back in his dodge days with penske. The ganassi organization has found some speed recently. So i would consider the one car for you live this sunday. Well there you have it. That's atlanta motor speedway in a ball of wax.

"atlanta" Discussed on First Take

"No janas no problem. After struggling without their star player and game for the bucks took the series lead last night in dominating fashion for the books. Five starters scored twenty two points or more in route to a game by victory. The hawks meanwhile searching for answers without trae young he's been averaging thirty two point. Seven points per game in this series freddie. What was the biggest reason for the bucks win last night at a to be honest with you because they weren't having it last night it's one thing to have production but they play with an attitude in terms of you what we're tired of just sitting back and letting the atlanta hawks dictate with the atlanta hawks had done to great effect before trae young when he was there then. After trae young guide injured we saw happening game for how the able to just step on the bucks throat early and not even backup before janas got into the nap. The honest got injured. The atlanta hawks found out that could happen to them. And milwaukee bucks did it. And i firmly believe it starting with holiday got that first two points in the pain and then brook lopez said. Hey that's good view then is good for me than everybody else. They will do the same thing. They force nate. Mcmillan the challenges basketball team to say. What's up with you guys. are you guys. He could not believe that. A buck seen that is known for being up for nest team was being the tougher. Basketball team was being the more physical basketball team. So talk about production all we want. It was great productive. Milwaukee bucks getting into paint but that attitude adjustment was the biggest reason why they're able to win brook lopez's normally a guy that loves camping on the outside and taking three point shots he's He got those paint touches and he put it on those smaller guys. That big dude like a big new last night for me. It's one thing to have production but that attitude and taking advantage and music. that's great effectiveness. The atlanta hawks to me was the biggest reason. Why the milwaukee bucks a three two series lead in this one okay and before we get to sean. Let's welcome in the great vince. Carter welcome vince. Thanks for being here so we want to ask you. What was the biggest reason last night for the bucks win for the alluded to it. I think first and foremost drew holiday imposing his will in the post not selling for judge shots the first play of the game in the post. Quick elbow jump hook. Next chris middleton with the jump shot and then everyone followed suit from there brook lopez and oh the battery pack aka. Bobby report brought his energy and his will effort he impose his will on the offense of last as well as it'd be physically and once. They hit the hawks in the mouth. Know when you're when you're on the road at the hawk you're saying pay the first five minutes stand strong take the blow and then we go from there well. They took the blow but they were never able to bounce back. They got within seven points. But that was it. And that's because of bobby portis and brook lopez in the pain. Dominating what i would say. Vce is i say you know what home court advantage always plays a part and not having your star player. Trae young certainly played a part. And i know trae. Young has been streaky. At times but his motivation who he is as a player being on the court to help his team facilitate spacing things out. It clicked cappella. Didn't play particularly well at all. He was bullied balked in the paint. There was no real adjustments. Made by nate mcmillan. But again when you don't have your star player on the floor. Sometimes that can be very difficult and i know they beat them at home in atlanta but that gave the home court advantage to atlanta hawks so the energy that they were missing from speedy gonzales. They got from the crowd when you think about it now. They're going back home for game six. Whether it's trae young a lot. I think the same time you see. They will wind up figuring out a way. How to neutralize brook lopez. Because i can't see or believe that brook lopez if are going to do the same things they did it gain five again in for game six. Well look at one thing. That coach nate mcmillan said before the game. The team that hits. I will win because you setting the tone. You're setting the tonal how you wanna play and you're trying to establish yourself before the other team well. The hawks did not do that on the road. For whatever reason the the the bucks understood how important this game is to them so they said what. No y- honest no problem. We're going to put the big speller in the post. So he can play in the post because if you think about it he had more space to operate. And that's why we see brook lopez a lot on the perimeter. Because john his they give janice the space he needs to operate now. Brook lopez gets the opportunity to operate in the in the post with four guys around the perimeter and they found that to work when they took him out. Bobby portis place down there in the post so in not they put the two big out there and let drew holiday. So please don't like hey we're going to beat you up. We're going to score in the post. And what are you going to do about it so like you said home cooking for the hawks and the formula of we play better at home is hopefully is enough but when you bring trae young into the picture you mentioned trae so you bring trae. Hopefully if he's not able to play to that thirty two point per game ability he can make place for these guys are knocked out shots vents. What is it about in terms of a game like this. If you're the bucks because not trying to slight my boone holzer but it seems to me that the bucks were more about motivating themselves as players to get into the paint. Even that was the game plan. How much of that is more of a player's thing. Now where you can say we can get whatever we want from the coach. But it's really on us to set this tone and not have to worry about carrying out instructions or the game plan from the head coach in this situation. I think is a little bit of both in understanding what works and where where you're mismatches. And what you can take advantage of. And they felt like they could take advantage of bully ball in the post because when janas is aggressive and not selling for three point shots or mid range and getting to the basket they were successful and you mentioned earlier. That game three. That's what they did on his attack attack attack into the paint. Well now they said we need. We have no youngest. We need our our big r post guys to be aggressive so now look for the bucks to utilize that again to be aggressive. But how do you offset that. Well you have to attack them on the other end bring lopez out on the perimeter to guards and when they did that they got in foul trouble and they got him off the floor because he couldn't guard guards downhill in pick and roll. Vc when you look at it and trae young. Let's assume young doesn't play for whatever reason because he tried to warm up in. It didn't didn't look good so he decided to sit this one out. Can lou wheel along with donna. Vich spread the floor like you saying on switches bring lopez in now all of a sudden they can knock down threes and get into that type of rhythm that they had in game four. While they're at home. I tell you lou will did not play. Well bogdonovich bogey. He he was fantastic. Twenty eight points but louisville didn't particularly play well and he had those switches and he really could not get by him without a contest by lopez. So look for them to kind of to to get lopez on the run. I having to guard multiple actions into isolation and with a live dribble. You look for some things like that. You can't just pick and roll switch attack. They were prepared for that but if he has to guard multiple actions now you kind of get them late on the switch then you attack him make him put his hands on foul. That is something. I think i would try to utilize for game six. okay vince. There are some clear adjustments that can be made but in your opinion after what you saw. Last night is a series over. I mean it all depends on what what what you get. Trae young first and foremost. I'm to root for my hawks regardless only a year removed. And they're doing this. You know when. I leave. I that's another story for another but i think home cooking is good but if they cannot make adjustment of stopping these guys in the post it's going to be a long and they go home so no trae young. They could possibly go home. So i say i'm.

"David Danzig of the website bites insights dot net So are you coming on WSB to maybe declare your favorite burger. You know, I'm always reluctant people. People ask me constantly like what's the best pizza? It's the best barbecue. What's the best? You know the bad and I I always find it. Um, It just depends. Well, it's it's sort. It's such a subjective experience right. So some people will would swear up and down that a McDonald's, You know, quarter pounder is the best burger. They and I respect that. I I love everybody's individual taste. But I will have to say now my absolute There is no challenger anymore. Favorite burger in the city of Atlanta is the reserve burger at Marcel the restaurant over on the West side. Oh, my love. Marcel is a fancy high end steakhouse It zone, a magnificent steakhouse. But They have on their menu. What they call the Reserve burger. Now this is not to be confused with the already decadent cheeseburger they do that's only available in the late night menu. This is the reserve burger. This is limited batch. They do less than 10 every night. So you need to get in there and stake your claim as soon as possible. When they're gone, they're gone so There's less than 10. I thought the chef told me Okay, This is a £1 colossus. It's made with 28 Day, dry aged rib eye and chuck and its ground into like a fist sized patty. They cook it in a pan. Finish it on a broiler. Top it with some exquisite Greer cheese, and they lay it on a sesame seed brioche bun from Milan's, and they serve it with these perfectly crispy, salty, garlicky freaks. And then, Okay, if you know if that's not enough, it comes with a single hollowed out bone. With its roasted marrow inside the bone. And if you slather that on that burger, it is mind blowing s O. Some people might want a knife and fork this thing I snatched this thing up like a football that had been fumbled and bury my face in it. And it held together. Great. And this is a burger that, you know, Um, I Dream about like I cannot stop thinking about how incredible this experience was. It's not cheap. It's 34 95. I don't care what it is. I found that this was more satisfying than a steak. I love steak. I love a nice filet. I love a rib eye. You kind of work through it, But this was an event This is ah, This is a really special thing. So Marcel. It's on the West side. It is a great steakhouse. But if you can get in there and get the reserve burger, I will attest that for myself, that is the prince. That is the precipice. That is the top burger experience. You just ruined it. You just told everything I know. So scurrying get there quickly. If you want to see pictures, you want to read more about it? I've got links at my website, which is bites and sites dot net and I've got pictures up that instagram as well. And my handle is at bites. Insights, but just.
