Newsmax Host John Bachman Shares His Backstory
"John, bob, I'm glad to have you with us today on dot com's podcast. It's not going to be with you. Have you called my friend? I guess that's what happens when you share your waffle House menu selections. You really become tight with somebody. Well, you know, when we get to be friends, you know, when I tell you what to order at waffle House, then we've got it down there. Hey, as we get started, one of the things I love to do in this podcast and when I do especially people politicians, I do media people is everybody knows us and I found this to be true and I think you probably have as well. If they see us in the airport or they see us have they know us from this right here, they know it from the camera if you would. They don't know the background. So span just a few minutes telling us, you know, where are you from? How you got here and just give us a good taste of who you are. Well, I'm from Marietta, Georgia originally. I was born actually my parents live in kennesaw when I was born. And we moved to Tampa pretty quickly thereafter and live there for 8 years, but moved back to Marietta when I was 8 years old. And from 8 years on all the way through my 5 years at the university of Georgia and there after my first job in television was in Augusta, Georgia was my home. I love it. I love the braise. I love the dogs. Having the Olympics there was fantastic as well. And it was just, you know, I think I lived there in a perfect time when the state to me, we learned about a three pillars, right? Wisdom justice and moderation. And all three things were readily available to me. Growing up in Marietta, I went to Davis elementary middle school and Lassiter high school for those folks to know. But it was such a great community because people were moving to Atlanta from all over the place. My parents were actually from the northeast, my dad settled in Atlanta in the 70s with my mom when we moved back there, but at that time in the late 80s, early 90s Atlanta was such a boom town and we had people from all over the place. And it was just such a great melting pot of different Americans and all kinds of folks, different races and religions. And I really felt like I had a wonderful public school experience and when it came time for college, the only thing I knew is that I wanted to go to an SEC football school. My dad went to graduate school at the university of Florida, and he took me to a game when I was four years old. It was a Florida Miami game. And it was one of my earliest memories, and I just love the whole thing. And then, you know, my sister went to auburn, and I was spent some time with her at all. My older sister, and I was like, this place is great. All these people are so nice on the planes. And I was like, it's a little boring though. And then finally, I didn't think I was gonna get into Georgia but I did get in and I went there and I had a bunch of buddies of mine who are you older than me in high school that went there and I spent some time with them and the moment I walked on campus I knew I was
Smylie Kaufman Discusses His Spring Break Trip
"Think we wouldn't be good credible journalists if we didn't talk about smiley's partial nudity, it's spring break. Yeah, we need to talk about partial nudity here on spring break. How did that trip? How did that trip come? You've probably talked about a million times, but the people want to know more than anything. How did that trip come about? That was the week after Augusta, wasn't it? It was two weeks after. So I think Ricky and JT decided to play Hilton head the following week. And JT, thanks to me about going on to bakers. I guess I was first alternate and got in. The fourth was at the time. And I was at it as a fourth. Which was awesome. I was like, cool. Those three guys are great. Love them all. And so we had known were going on this trip prior to Augusta. So going into the final group of Augusta, I've known Jordan like casually, but I had been on a trip with them. We went to different schools, you know, we didn't really talk a ton in college. So our first really time we played together was at Augusta on Sunday and so we knew we were about to go drink a lot of beers together, but we knew it was going to happen later. So we were like, all right, and so after that trip, you know, hey man I both obviously had steam we needed to get out. And just from playing bad. And then I think JT or Rick both shot a million at Hilton head. We get to baker's coming in hot. Like, I mean, all four of us are white. We played some really bad golf. We need to drink a million beers. And yeah, we just had a hell of a time. And Rick was pretty big on social media at the time, obviously. He's always been pretty big on it. And so is JT. This was kind of when Rick was a big social media guy. And Jordan really didn't do a whole lot. I had probably 5, 10,000 followers at the time at the end of the trip. I had so many. It was just like, what is going on? A lot of people here. People like the content. We were just being, you know, I think it was just we were being ourselves and it was a
Smylie Kaufman Believes Seeing the Best Play in Person Is Key
"I tell you what I love watching the best players in the world play too. You learn something every time you go see some of those guys play. You're like, you just kind of take a couple of things. I always just so impressed with I watched JT on Saturday and Augusta and I've known JT forever and when you haven't seen a guy like him playing a while, it wasn't just his golf that impressed me. It was just like the way he carries himself. And I think that those are the things you kind of you don't see just on regular TV. So as a current professional golfer, I learn, you can kind of take tidbits from things that you learn from those top players in the world. So I'm kind of looking forward to watching those guys carry themselves and seeing how close I really am to be back to compete with those guys.
Anheuser-Busch vs Coors Brewing Company at Augusta National
"That reminds me of a story from Augusta national, actually. When I was playing a practice round there, it was how quiet it is. There are SK what normally. And I was there in March, the month prior for my last trip there before the masters. And you have to be with a member if you're bringing anyone to play. Jeff Knox came out and just the token Augusta national member. And we were talking and he was telling me some stories about that place. He was telling me who was on site that day. And apparently the guy that owns Anheuser Busch is a member there and Peter kurz, the guy that owns Coors brewing, they're obviously competitors, but they're both members at Augusta and they were the guy that owns Anheuser Busch was there that day. And Peter kurz had gotten wind that the guy that owns Anheuser Busch was going to be on site that day. So he called the day prior. You know where I'm going with this. He called the day prior and bought all of the Coors light on the property. All of the coolest products. He spent like $30,000 and bought all of their products and had them shipped off. So when Peter corris got there the next day to play golf at Augusta national, there was no course products. He had to drink Bud Light or Budweiser or an Anheuser Busch product. That's the kind of shit that doesn't happen anywhere else in the country. But like a little snicker ha ha, I made him drink my beer. That happens all the time at Augusta national. There's little bitty things where they run their, it's like their own government inside those gates. They have no rules except for what they want to do. It doesn't even feel like they have anyone over them. They are the rules in Augusta,
Augusta's 12th Hole Is Notoriously Tough
"About. Dude, that whole so dirty. I mean, remember, remember when Tiger one, 2019, molinari was, he had a multiple shot lead in that hole, and he just, I mean, he tried to flag it and that's how Tiger freaking won. And I think molinari hit the tree on his third shot on 15. And then it was just over, but yeah, Tiger hits it to like 50 feet on 12 or whatever. And that hole is so dirty. I mean, it seems tough. I'm glad that I'll probably never have the opportunity to play it and be
John Peterson on Holding the Solo Lead of the 2016 Masters
"So you teed off Thursday morning, Pete. I was the first group off on Thursday. Do they are the first three groups on the board? Or do they, when do they decide, we're going to start putting guys on the leaderboard? First of all, no, that's a good question. Because we made it I teed off. I teed off right behind Arnie Jack and Gary. So I sat there and watched them. Tee off from the front row. That was just the coolest shit ever. And then all of a sudden it hit me that I had to hit next. It's like, oh, fuck. So it was one of those days like this year's masters where it was 45°, and it's 7 a.m.. It's cold and Augusta, Georgia, sometimes this time of year. And it's overcast, 45°, and there's now driving. John Peterson, and I was like, oh, jeez, here we go. That bunker on the right is like 305 yards to carry. It's 45°. I've never carried it 305 yards in my life. It doesn't matter if I have a hurricane behind me. I hit this bitch and it miscarrying this bunker by like two feet. At 45°. And I'm like, I don't know what happened there. But I've never carried a ball 340 yards at 40° in my life. So after I hit that tee shot, I settled down. Sure, solo leader at the masters credit to myself. But I did get around to like the 8th. I think the atoll was the first time I saw my name on the big board because they have that they have that leaderboard there on the left. So they did have you on 8. Okay. They had me on 8. I had made all pars. I had made all pars until 13. I burned 13, and then I buried 15. So I was two under through I was 200 through 16. And of course, I three put 17 and ruined the bogey free round. But yeah, I opened with one under. I was pretty happy with that. And then I just kind of partied the rest of the week.
Smylie Kaufman Looks Back on His 2016 Masters Battle With Jordan Spieth
"Then you go to the masters and everybody remembers watching you battle with Jordan Spieth that week. Yeah. Talk about that. Oh, God. Just an incredible week. Really felt like that place set up well for my game. Drove the shit out of it. That entire week. Like, as good of a driving week as I've ever had. I remember. They didn't have like the strokes gained thing on the master things. You couldn't see how well you actually did drive it, but it was so windy. And it was just like this past year. At that shot, 69 on Saturday. And I went to Augusta this year for the first time since that masters. So I was out there on Saturday this year and I think it was probably eerily similar to the Saturday that I shot 69 and was the low guy. Cameron Smith shot 68 and being outside the ropes and seeing, you just didn't see a four under that day. So obviously I was in a good frame of mind because I was, you know, I just really felt like I had control of the golf ball. Good wind player. It was blowing 30. Just didn't screw up any. Just put it in the right places and it was an awesome week till Sunday just kind of ran out of gas a little bit. It's one of those days until you experience that final and you've experienced final rounds of majors. You just gotta have those momentum pots to keep you going. Just to keep the mojo going and I kept missing the mojo putts and eventually by the end of the day, I think I was four or 5 over going into 16 and just finished four over on the last four. So this work kind of got over hyped for what I actually did shoot but the thing for three to 5 three putts that day and I'm not a three
The Fall of 2015 Was a Golfing Dream for Smylie Kaufman
"Get your tour card obviously that year, right? And then you go, and then you go win in Vegas. And you say to hell with this, this is the easiest thing ever. What was I doing in college trying to play top 5? I could just come out here and win right away. Yeah, you know, that fall, man. What a dream fall, huh? Well, I was playing so well. And the guys coming off of the web really like, you don't have a break. You just go straight into playing. That's the best thing that could ever happen for a young pro is like playing a smaller, not the biggest tour event, but still the big, the big show. And you get out there and you're just like, all right, I'm still in playing mode. It's not like when you got your card in years past where you had to wait all the way till Sony. You wait three or four months and you're not, you know, you're not as fresh as you were coming off a web tour finals, which we were. You know, we had a week off then went to Napa. It's like, you're still in a pretty good golf shape. I think that was an advantage for me that I finished tenth in Napa and then when the following week and just had an awesome fall, it was the best. Some of the best golf I've played on tour was that fall and into all the way into Augusta.
A Friend Turns $2,000 to $39,000 Over Masters Tournament
"Big masters weekend, what's his name scheffler? I had a friend what's his name? Scheffler? Scott scheffler. And I think he's from Texas. I know my friend Joey hutson loves watching golf. And this young golfer, what is he 25? And just stormed through Augusta. I've got a friend who said, and I'm not a gambler. But my friend, I think, is pretty sophisticated when it comes to wagering. He said, a week ago, bet scheffler, I was at in Las Vegas last week, and you could bet on whether it's going to rain or not the next day, I think in Vegas. I mean, they'll take a bet on everything. He said, go bet scheffler. And not being a gambler, I don't know what I'm doing. I don't know how to bet. What do you just go up to the window and say that? I'm scheffler. Well, he did. His $2000 bet was worth 39,000 dollars. And why didn't I listen to him? Even about a $100 in. Anyway, interesting story about Tiger. He was trying to roar back, but the masters gives me such a feeling of hope for things to come. It's spring, new beginnings,

"Look, go into an awesome event, awesome game, awesome concert, is the coolest thing in the world. We spent half the show talking about how awesome and amazing and phenomenal and a day we had experience we had. So go use game times that you can go have those, get out, get off the couch, get out of bed, get out, go out, go to a show, go to a concert, go to a game, go to a tournament, and use game time to do it, use the code for get $20 off. Last thing Phil Mickelson. So Fred Ridley, the chair, just a national chairman Fred Ridley, said about Phil. He made a personal decision, and I don't know anything beyond that. I know that Phil has been a real fixture here at the masters for many, many years. He's been a big part of our history. We certainly wish him the best working through the issues he's dealing with right now. He said that he is not, he was not disinvited or uninvited or suspended by the masters. That film made that decision himself and that Fred Ridley himself does not know anything beyond that. Speaking his annual address at Augusta, Ridley said that he had a quote cordial exchange with Mickelson over text and that he thanked him for his courtesy. That's the latest from the film Mickelson update kind of bizarre and wild to think where Phil Mickelson was in May, winning the PGA Championship, oldest major winner of all time. He gets to 6, Tiger Woods potentially amputating his leg. Now with a year later, 11 months later, the entire script has flipped, Tiger Woods looks amazing. I'm picking him to win the master's tournament. I think it's gonna be the greatest week of all time, even if he doesn't, it doesn't really matter the fact that he's gonna actually play is gonna be so emotional and cool. And you got Phil Mickelson, who is rumored borderline, rumored to be banned from like everything in the history of golf. What a fucking juxtaposition it's been. What a flipping of the script it's been over the last year, fellas. Crazy. But until I saw those quotes from Fred Ridley, I had spent zero time thinking about Phil Mickelson. And that is what Tiger Woods does. And I would like to go back and say, because a couple podcasts ago, I had said that I think Phil should have committed to playing just in case Tiger decides to play. And now I believe that even more so, because Tiger is, he's making such a spectacle of deciding whether or not he's going to play, that if Phil had said, I'm going to play if he had said that a couple weeks ago or whenever he wanted to. This whole week, what Tiger has done, it's buried everything, and it certainly has the capability of burying the fill storyline. And I just think it's such a mistake for Phil not to play. And as this week goes on and as the Tiger mania builds, I just feel that so much more. So, but again, I'm not thinking much about Phil, because of the Tiger spectacle and he's not playing. He didn't get disinvited, whatever. I just, right now, I don't care about film Mickelson at all. Same, don't care. Tiger week. I love that. I couldn't agree more. All right, look, that's it..

"So what was it 30 or 40 or something under and the next closest or 5 or 6 back? I think it was Mike rahm and Scotty shepherd. So he's way up there in terms of his performance and majors, and this is obviously a major. It seems pretty healthy. He's got four one thing that makes me a wheelchair. We gotta talk about game time here in a second. One thing that makes it a little tricky is like four is a lot of majors. I know he racked him up at a pretty quick span, but four is a lot of majors, so we do we really think like it feels like DJ and Justin Thomas are due for more, right? Because DJ has two now because he won the match in 2020. JT has one. They're due to win more majors. Brooks Koepka is so dominant majors, but I don't know that he feels like he's like, he has four fucking majors. Four is as many as Rory McIlroy. But it is that breaks two ways, right? Yeah. Like he's got four, so you think he can win him. And he's probably going to win another one at some point. But I know what you mean. And it has been a while since he won one of these, not too long, but longer than we all thought, I think. And it does seem like, man, the more we talk about JT and I know he's the sexy pick with everyone, but I'm definitely gonna put a little bit on him because I'm gonna kick myself. Come Saturday, early Sunday when it's like, oh, JT's just the best player in the field by a lot. And he's got this pretty much in the bag. So yeah, Brooks isn't a bad pick though. I'd be curious to know what the odds are on that right now. I was trying to pull it up, but my phone's being weird. I mentally put a comma after kick myself when you said that I'm gonna kick myself, come Saturday and Sunday, comma. I made me laugh. It's a little dirty joke..

Barcelo river north on Saturday and Sunday. Let's fucking go. Let's have a week now. Now we're yours now. If this podcast ends, we're continuing the fucking content. Just go on Twitter. Who do you think so you guys take on the. Favorite for this week, which is John rahm, you think rob should be the favorite? We got him JT. Him and JT are close. Scotty's just barely behind him. Victor hovland's at 16 to one Dustin Johnson, 1601 Rory McIlroy 61 cam Smith, but you got rom at ten to one JT at 11 to one chef or at 14 to one. Think those are about right. Would you think that because JT to me seems to be most people's most people's pick? The most the most common pick thus far. Yeah, I think JT should be the favor, but that is borne out of me just being sick of John rom being at the top every single time. He deserves it. I get it. I get why he's there. He's John rom, when he plays up to his capabilities. He is just the best golfer on the planet. No problem. I just, for whatever reason, and you're right Riggs, everybody's picking JT and I have a good feeling about JT this week as well. It's something about some of the displays that he has put on in tournaments recently. Just make me think and know that he can hit any shot that he wants and I just think that's so valuable and one of these weeks he's gonna put it all together for four days and people are gonna be like holy fuck. How did we just not all say Justin Thomas was gonna win this golf tournament by four or 5 strokes? He's one of those weeks is coming for JT and it might be this week..

"So we talked with our guy Taylor and Mike essay about getting this segment on where essentially we're gonna hear about what's in the bag or maybe we talk to a different type of rap or a different tour manager that works with these guys on the range, like Adrian just popped on here. He's been on the range with all the tailor made athletes at the fucking masters since Sunday or whenever he rolled in, right? Whatever you said there, there's this under Monday. Just like the most essential guy to them aside from their own coaches and family. Scottie scheffler and Rory McIlroy and more college. All these guys are legitimately like trusting Adrian to be like, no, no, this is like all the numbers are right. Like your loft angles are right. That's how far this wedge is gonna go. You hit it the way you wanna hit it, it's gonna go one 43. I'm telling you right now, I've got you dialed in. If it doesn't, you know, he says we win together, we lose together. That's my mistake. So that's a lot of pressure on Adrian, really cool that we got him on the show. The fact that we now have access to a guy like that for big tournaments for majors, we're gonna have him on. And now like we all get to kind of look into that stuff. We're gonna watch the masters with just a little bit more insight on how dialed in these guys truly are and like what they're working on. They got more clean wedges because they want it to be able to spend more and if things firm up, they're gonna change that around and Rory worked on a certain ball. So now everyone is listening to this podcast like when they watch Rory, they're gonna know that he went through some sort of decision to use that TP 5 X like that's really cool. Like I fucking we would never know that aside from having Adrian on, so. No. And him saying right away, it's like, no, we are not looking for two irons this week, man. We're looking for hybrids, 5 Woods, 7 Woods. We need things that go really high in the air, lands off because they've gotten a ton of rain these last few days. Yeah, they'll probably be able to try to firm it up by Saturday and Sunday if the weather stays good. But at this point in the week and dude, he said to the point, Rory has a fresh wedge in his locker waiting for in case the green's firm up. Like, yeah. He's gonna go out there with a brand new wedge just because of that. That's like to me that stuff is so fascinating that they're getting that dialed in that there's gonna be that big of a difference, you know, clubs, the setup each day, each round, each tournament, based a little bit on the conditions of it dries out a little bit more, they're gonna go with something different. Just reminds you of how important it is to go get fitted and get the right gloves for you. I mean, how are you supposed to just stuff off the shelf that's not curated to your game? You're swinging. How the hell are you supposed to have a chance out there? It's impossible. It is impossible, but luckily Taylor made makes clubs for all different types of people like the stealth irons are just like they're trends irons. And they're made for the guy that doesn't need his stuff adjusted to the tenth degree and they're just so much more forgiving and like that technology has been the fact that they've been able to just dial in all the different types of technology. Like obviously the best of the best, they have to dial things in on a level that we've never even understand because they can use clubs the way we can..

"You can't have it come out that he says they just couldn't get it done so I had to go somewhere else. That's a hit that they are gonna have to wear forever. And maybe people are gonna take it as seriously as we are, but we will always know that in Tiger's big moment of need. Nike would just couldn't figure it out. It's crazy. Like were they thinking that they could make a shoe but it's not one that's like in their current line so like they didn't want to just like make them a custom shoe because like this foot joy one is something that fans can buy or break laws. I don't care about whatever law you gotta break just like if Tiger Woods wore a shoe that literally no one else on the planet could ever purchase or wear. That's completely acceptable and actually like should be happening. Right, right? Yes. I agree. Just make them a new shoe. Something that's completely away from everything you've ever done. I would watch a documentary on what has been going on at Nike for the last 6 months, or whenever Tiger said, I need you guys to figure out a shoe for me to the press conference yesterday because there had to have been countless meetings and brain trusts and R&D and trying to figure it out and it just, they just couldn't make it happen for whatever they just didn't, they just didn't get it done. I'd watch a documentary just on Tiger arriving on Sunday. And with for joy shoot, I watch a documentary on the moment that he went for the first time with foot joys. How that occurred, the actual process because we've heard every rumor in the book from JT slipped off his shoes because Tiger was slipping with wedge shots, Tiger put him on, started hitting him better as back felt better and so he sent Robbie Mack to PGA Tour.

"They even have 88% the hardcore ones. Truly, we love truly. But man, I love that squad so much. What was I just going to say? Oh yeah, before we move on from Tiger, but I do want to talk about kids. Let's talk about these hats. Let's talk about the merch that we've recently put on sale because boy. Sometimes we just do it right. Sometimes we don't do it right. We've done it wrong in the past when it comes to merch, but sometimes we do it right. And we have done it right with the merch that we have put out in the last week. And these hats that you see, you're probably wondering why are they not in the store yet? Well, they will be probably when you're listening because we're putting them on sale when Tiger Woods tees off. So just but and it has nothing like we just love animals. Oh yeah, that's nothing to do with that. No, maybe next week we put out deers on a shirt or like the week after that we put octopuses on a hat. Like this week, this week and it's tear, I think I don't think it's tears. Pick the week of I picked two animals, guys. That are plural without it. Penguins could have said penguins now. We're gonna put goose's on stuff. I picked the two animals that I could think of that just didn't work in plural. So, but my point being is that this is the week of tigers. We love tigers. We love. We think that a Tiger on a hat and a shirt and a Tiger swinging a golf club is really cool. Go look at our stuff. Thank you to everyone that's already bought and has gotten in on this Tiger week because it's an awesome animal. I fucking love tigers. Somebody also tweeted me yesterday that 2022 is the year of the Tiger. Absolute fucking loop. It is trend. So the year of the Tiger, look at these hats. That's what we're celebrating, man. You golf during the year, the Tiger. So why not have a golf theme Tiger hat? So, listen, we can make all the jokes we want. You guys know exactly why you need to get these shirts, these hoodies, these quarter zips. Whatever we're putting out, go look on our store and tell me that's not the greatest collection you've ever seen in your entire life. Our merch team in our graphics team combined there to just nail it. It's not easier to do and there are, you know, there's different iterations. There's ways to mess it up. There's ways to put out shirts and designs for people who have just LOL, their asses off at us because of how bad they've been and how stupid they've looked. These they nail. Our team absolutely crushed it. They do such a good. Does it Megan? Who draws it? Is her name? A Megan, who's like a Megan figure that I don't. Megan, there's nothing, there's no words to describe how talented Megan and our team is. We throw these ideas at her or we throw it at Alison pillar and Alex and they just like formulate it into like a real sentence from our fucking gibberish. And they're like, hey, these guys want to celebrate the year of the Tiger..

"They get one week. The place I've ever seen. They get one week, the rest of the year, 51 weeks of the year. It's just, I mean, there's just nothing. Yeah, he's like the deer in the fox is just like play on the putting green, like whoever we lock it up and that's it. That sounds incredible. It's incredible. It's a really, really cool experience, so we will be back there clearly. I think we should do some shows from there and something next year, but yeah, club Magnolia is as VIP as it gets as Frankie said. So Tiger Woods, last time we did a golf podcast here, a little show for the fellows and the ladies out there. For everyone, you know, it was very much believed that Tiger Woods was going to play in the masters tournament, but he had not done his press conference yet. He did come out on Tuesday, and he essentially said he's playing. He said, as of right now, I plan on playing. He then spoke the rest of the entire press conference with the assumption that he had declared that he was indeed playing. He had probably the quote of the year so far in golf, which was when I think it might have been our guy Danny rappaport, who said, you know, Tiger, you famously have said and stated that you do not show up and don't plan to show up and don't plan to play golf tournaments unless you believe you can win that golf tournament. So do you believe you can win the masters? And he just said, I do. And that was it. It was an amazing moment, and that was our guy, Danny rappaport, redemption for him after The Bahamas, I believe it was when he asked, he was going to ask two questions. He asked the first one and he did and then he tried to get the second question and he just didn't remember. So I was very happy for our guy, Danny. He knows what he's doing with that question and it was perfect. That's the exact type of response you want to get from Tiger Woods because you know that quote is going to be everywhere and that quote was everywhere. And yeah, that whole press conference was just pretty incredible. Once he said, I feel like I'm going to play and then he said the I do, you know, I feel like I can win when he said that. And the whole thing is still pretty surreal, but I think we all assumed he was going to play and it looks like that's going to be the case, especially I mean, he was out there playing today. So he's definitely playing. He's got a tee time and everything. So yeah, I thought most of the press conference he didn't give a ton, but the times that he decided to say I'm playing and that I can win..

"I'm going, do you see Frank and people are going, yeah, yeah, I saw him. He's looking for you up there, and we just were following each other out and golf course for 45 minutes to an hour, maybe? Yeah, and then finally just lock eyes on each other at the par three. It was a huge moment because at that point, he's gone forever. With that many people at that golf course, everyone's looking the same, all wearing the same outfit, same color schemes. Gone forever. We ended up finding each other and it was a scene though, like everyone, like I'm reaching it I see one guy say, have you seen rigs because I think I saw him 30 minutes ago, he was that way. Riggs is saying the same thing to the guy that he just saw. He goes, Frank, he's looking for you. Fucking crazy, man. That place is such a blast from the past that it makes you, it puts you in scenarios that you could only have happen to you in the past. Trent, you would have like, you would have gotten a little freaked out by like doing all the selfie camera stuff because you felt like you were in the 90s. It was a weird scene. Many times I'm like, man, this is just like what like my sister, my older sister is like just did when they were like growing up. Like this is just how you took photos with your Friends. You're very weird. I was like, oh yeah, this is just like what life was like. I don't think selfies were that as prevalent as they are now. I mean, I'm sure I wondered that too. I think the people's desire to take selfies is I think largely born out of the ability to take them. It's a great point, dude. I think you're right. I don't know that the selfie. I mean, they're probably a few examples, but it wasn't a prevalent thing now. I mean, people take, we take selfies, all that..

"Are over and you're just watching a game. Like, yo, can you just grab me a drink? I can't no problem. Go in there and just fill up a master's 2022 cup. It's something that like, you know, such a flex, but also just a little hint of, hey, I brought heaven back home with me and here's little piece. You can share it with me for a second. It's the best. It's just literally the best. Frankie and I had a funny incident where Frankie was duped by a fake trash can coming out and I don't know that I've ever seen a fake trash can in my life, but man, we're walking out after the whole day. This is like an hour ago, you know, we're surrounded by a ton of people running to these stories that were chit chatting with and Frankie's got a rapper or something. He's throwing away and he just goes and just doink nothing. I'll just bang his knuckles up against this treasure and I'm talking. This thing was carved out of like fine metals and it was a lovely trash can that just didn't even consider opening on the slot where it's supposed to open. I don't know why that's more efficient but it just is like they knew that that one couldn't be used because of its location or something and they just thought that it would be better that like a piece of like they thought that a garbage can belong there, but they definitely did the math on where trash was going to be tossed out and they figured that that wasn't the most ideal spot. So 8 more steps. There was a plastic trash bag that was then on a stick. But the real one that was like dug into the ground was actually drilled shut so like my knuckles broke. It was insane. I'm not sure I've ever been this confused in my life..

"I don't know what other place on Planet Earth has people, a higher percentage of happy people than Augusta national. Everyone was just happy. The whole entire place, 45, 50,000 people, or just happy. They were just pumped to be there. Frankie and I saw a lot of different folks. I'm gonna go Roger Goodell first. I mean, Roger Goodell, we're just standing out by the beach. We saw Roger Goodell. We're standing out by the he's a member of Augustus, so he's just in he's in his green jacket and, you know, at this point, we got like colt knowme, so we got a bunch of people that we know that are kind of inside the ropes and the large oak tree. I believe is that what it's called large oak tree. That's just where everybody meets up by the Clubhouse and they got like the tables outside the kind of random and the whole thing going on and he's standing on the other side of the ropes just chit chatting with people. There was a point where I would say Roger Goodell was probably 7 feet behind Frankie. I would say. I think that's right. We lost Trent. He was, he was right behind me. And then a scenario in which I was going to prank Roger Goodell started to formulate. Like, I really thought I had to do something. My Dave portnoy instincts kicked in, where it's like, if I don't, if I don't fuck with Roger Goodell at this point and like really get under his skin, like everything that I've been taught and learned about from Dave and I've been through was for nothing. And we genuinely like talked about, we genuinely talked about like, I've always wanted to see Roger Goodell in person and give a handshake out and then just do the fucking whoop too slow. And I really thought about doing it, but we never got the opportunity. He kind of just like walked away once we realized it was him. He was too far away. I couldn't fuck and just start screaming at him. It's like, y'all get murdered out there at Augusta. So I'm actually still here. I heard the whole, I heard the whole story and I understand where the impulse to do something like that comes. Obviously, you know, the Dave and Roger Goodell beef is, it's an incredible thing. But you almost, if you had done something like that and not on camera, it's a little tougher. Like if you just tell the story, I don't know how much of an impact it has. It doesn't have as much, but like, man, I started getting just like the tinglies. He kicked me out of the Super Bowl, too. I fucking hate that guy. I didn't get to see that maroon 5 concert. Dave got taken out. He went limp. So Roger Goodell fuck you, but at the end of the day, you know, a great day. Great, great, great day..

"Sorry about the audio. On our side, I think Zeus is trying to just shoot us out of the sky with this fucking thunder and lightning and Gus. I've never seen anything like it. It's like he's trying to pick us off one by one. This is some crazy thunder that I'm hearing in the back. I can't hear it. I wish I could hear it. Bro, it's nuts. And then also Trent before we get into everything else, I want you to know that there was a moment when we were walking into Augusta national today that I wished that you were there for, and I said, man, Trent would have laughed so hard at this, but also it would have been his favorite moment. Basically, everyone's like, right outside the gate, we're about to give our phones to the check in. You can't bring your phone inside a guest to national. So it's like, which is insane. It's ridiculous, obviously. I love it, but it's also fucking nuts. It's like, you gotta have a crazy feeling when you actually have to give your phone up. It's just crazy. It's like we just need our phones bad. Especially like we ended up throwing out a sports book promo and then we just turned our phones off and we're like, what if something happened with that? I thought in my head they have to be freaking out about that about the promo. Maybe I said something wrong or who we're like Augusta is going to take down the sportsbook because they're done. I knew you guys are freaking out about that. Ten minutes are off the company's going under. It's like, fuck, that was fucking. You guys are just walking down 17. Anyway, there was a moment where right before, I guess this guy, this older man. Maybe 80 years old was there with his wife outside the gates, asked Riggs for him to take a photo of him and his wife and they were just in front of the nice flags and the Augusta national entrance and he goes he puts his arms around his wife and he just smiles. He's so happy and he goes. He goes. He goes, he goes, we're at Augusta. I'm really happy. Hell yeah, dude. He just said two things that he was experiencing. He goes, we're at Augusta national. We're at the masters. That's what he said. He goes, we're at the masters. I'm really happy. And just smiled at the camera as if nothing in the world could make him upset. And that's what this place is. Like, that old ass man that's experienced all this shit. I mean, that guy probably weighed online for fucking bread during The Great Depression. The guy was his oldest fucking dirt. He's out here crying. All the things he's seen in his life. This still makes him excited, walking into this golf fucking tournament, makes this guy be like, have tears rolling down his eyes, grabbing his wife as he walks into the Gates. There's no place like it, man. Well, and you got a ground yourself. Like when you say it out loud, it becomes a real thing. That he goes, we're at the masters, man, I'm happy. I actually hope everyone who experiences it for the first time does that same thing because you don't realize it until you really say it. I mean, I know you're there and you know that you're at Augusta and whatever. But you almost just gotta be like, I'm at the fucking masters. You gotta say it out loud, so you really realize what you're doing, that I love that story. And it brings me a lot of joy. Dude, it was great. And he said it as I'm just taking the pictures, like rather than smiling, he couldn't help, but just have to say the words out loud. I'm at the masters. I'm really happy..

"Got, we got one of the luckiest breaks, I would say, in history, where Frankie and I, you know, we were out a little bit late last night. We're having a couple drinks. We were finagling, we were telling stories. Without giving it all away, we can't because we can tell like Mark Steinberg and the excel crew we were hanging out with, telling stories, had an absolute blast last night. Trent, you wouldn't believe what happened last night. You wouldn't have to say, I can't wait for you guys to get here. You better tell me all about it. We had so much fun, but we get back a little bit late. And you know, we wake up, we don't get to Augusta till maybe 9 a.m. or so. First three and a half hours that we're there are spectacular, it's beautiful how we go down the back 9. We see Tiger Woods. He appears the city, but we walk by the merch was not even part of the question. It was gonna be like a three or four hour wait. So we roll over there, we gotta talk about shady rays, which I wish I would have had on me out there on the golf course today I forgot them. We're gonna get to shady ray's. Best warranty in the game. And we have our own pair of go check out shady race. But we get to August and we're like, we gotta find Tiger Woods. We heard the Tiger Woods teed off at 8 a.m.. We're enamored by the entire place, obviously. The color green that it is. There's nowhere else on earth that is that color green green. I don't know how they do it. That juxtaposition with the yellow flags. You kind of walk out from the merge concession area for the first time, you're right by the first T in the first fairway. You can't believe the undulation on the first fairway, the very first fairway that we're seeing. It is like a half pipe. It goes way down and then way back up into the first fairway and you're just like, holy shit. We're at Augusta national. It's so green, the signs. They say Amy corner this way. The first tee that way. So we're like, we gotta find Tiger Woods. There's whispers. The whole property is whispering that Tiger Woods is on the back 9 that he teed off at 8 a.m. at that point. Are you just looking for a crowd? Are you looking for the most people ever on a golf course? Correct. We're just looking for at Augusta. There's massive corridors and viewing points through the trees. You can kind of tell. So we pretty much could look from almost the 9th, 18th green area, all the way down to kind of the 15th, 16th holes. You can't actually see those holes, but you can see the crowds and being like, yep, we're going that way. And everyone that's with us is speed walking as well towards kind of 16. There's whispers that tigers there. So Frankie and I meander our way down. We get ourselves a nice pimento cheese, a couple egg salads..

"A scheduled flights during this podcast. It's been a crazy week, Frankie and I decided to go to Augusta national. It's pouring here right now, but we just finished up a full day on the grounds. We took a bunch of video of it, which that video should come out on Thursday. We had a hell of a day. We lost each other. We bought a bunch of merch. We saw Tiger Woods make a birdie. We got a lot to discuss. Trent daddy, it appears that you are in the Chicago office, which we're going to be at Thursday, Friday, and then Saturday Sunday, we're going to be at the bar. How are you? How's your week? How's the Chicago office? I'm great. The Chicago office is great. This is my first time here. And it's really just a magnificent office. I walked in here and I know everybody says that who comes from the New York office to hear. But I'm really, we were talking a little bit before we hopped on the podcast. And I just feel, I feel home. I'm a Midwest guy, Chicago, is as Midwest as it gets, and it's good to see Eddie. I mean, I've seen all the guys. It's good to see all of them. I can't wait for you guys to get here the setup that we're going to be watching the coverage at is fantastic. I feel great. I mean, I probably don't feel as good as you guys do because you were just at the greatest place in the world, but for me personally right now, I feel great. And I've got this fantastic codon, which I'm sure we're going to talk about. Yeah, you do look, you look like you were born. You were born in the Midwest. You were born to be in that office, something about the blue and the white, and the little red dots, the Chicago colors, and Trent just works. We were at Augusta national today, and I mean, I could cry just about just being from that Augusta gets me really emotional. It's a place that and I'm not going to reference Disney in this episode. I'm not. Okay. Even though I should. Like, it's a place that you just can't believe is real. There's real magic happening inside that build inside those grounds. Beyond those walls beyond those pines, magic is happening. And it happens in all different crevices of this place. We saw Tiger Woods hit a golf shot and then just tap it. That's crazy. By the way, that's crazy that you saw him. Being there is one thing and it is a magical place, but the fact that Tiger was there, playing golf in front of you guys, is something that I want you guys to tell me all about because I want to know and I think the listeners players that this is us just talking is like buddies on a podcast that a bunch of people listen to. Players now like we've seen this trend of guys like knowing who we are and stuff like, when you're at Augusta national and guys are prepping for the masters, the fact that people are legitimately walking from the fairway over to the patrons to spot us out and get our attention like a will zalatoris..

"I saw a lot of chatter on Twitter about the sky shuffler number one in the world thing and I guess there's a world golf rankings Twitter that I don't ever want to see again, but there's like a group of people that like to argue about it, but I would equate it to like, he's not the best golfer on the planet, just like you wouldn't say like criss-cross the greatest goal scorer of all in the NHL, even though he's like leading the NHL in goals. It drives me fucking crazy that guy's playing so well, but like it's very clearly like Alex Ovechkin is a better goal scorer than you know what I'm saying? It doesn't happen not this year. I'm just saying it doesn't have to be an end all be all that he's the greatest compliment. Someone's number one ranking. It's the same thing as being the stat leader and another fucking Nelson Cruz leads them will be in home runs one year. You don't have the greatest home run hitter and fucking baseball at the time. It's like, he just happens to be really hot. I don't know why people get so crazy about that. It's a snapshot is what it is. It's just a little look into what's going on right now. Like a leaderboard. But I guess what, no, I don't have any problem with it. I really don't, but I think what Riggs said earlier is probably what's tripping people up is that like he doesn't have the huge major win that you would associate with a number one ranking. And clearly there's other ways to go about earning that ranking. He's just, you know, played well in majors, and then he piled up a bunch of wins right in a row. That's another way to do it. It just seems like when you plant your flag as a number one player in the world, there's usually this moment, and it's usually a major championship, but it's like, that's the guy. Like when John ram wins the U.S. open, that's the number one golf in the world. Scotty just did it in a very uncharacteristic way. Yeah, and it's also uncharacteristic because it's like this pre master stuff, right? To a lot of people, the golf season has even really started yet, right? You get the little piano out and you get the azaleas and you get the green grass at Augusta, that's kind of like, boom, major season has begun. That's real. So him rattling off these three wins before that before a lot of major golf is even woken up to a lot of people. Totally get that it's different. And Frankie, I know exactly what you're saying.

"Have a lot to look forward to. I think when you look at the east specifically, there's just there's a lot of rooms for South Carolina to surge and they have all the pieces and they have that sense of belief and excitement, which I think is what kind of catapulting them right now and what played a huge role in the season that they were able to have. It was just belief. I mean, they wouldn't go down and it was really exciting to see. I think Shane Bieber is exactly what South Carolina needed in terms of morale and I mean, like you said, getting sent to rattler. I can't think of anything that's more exciting for this fan base right now. Augusta, before you go, I'm curious because I interact with so many students that I have the opportunity to meet throughout the travels. And I know how difficult it is because I hear from young seniors all the time about job opportunities. You have landed a really good job at a major and respected newspaper in a hotbed of SEC sports, what was that Odyssey like for you and what advice would you give to so many young people who are maybe watching or listening about what is ahead for them? Well, thank you so much, first of all, and I really do feel like I've landed in just an absolutely awesome place. So I just feel so blessed and honored before anything, but honestly, it sounds so funny, but I think my truest and most honest and sincere advice would be to trust the process. I know as a type a person, it was really hard for me to kind of let go and kind of just let it happen, you know? But I believe that the stars as fall as they May and I was so, so lucky and this opportunity came up and going through the interview process and everything. It just felt right. And I think, you know, trust your gut and just trust that things work out because at the end of the day, you know, you can only work hard, you know, enjoy what you do, but the cards have to fall right. And I was just so lucky to land here and I can't express that enough. So just step back and enjoy the ride and you'll end up where you need to be. That would be my advice. A couple of friends that are on that staff with you and they're doing it is such a fantastic place. We're so proud of you. I can't tell you how thrilled we all are of your matriculation from college to the real world and we would look forward to staying in touch very much. Be well. And thanks for coming on. Of course.

"Tournament challenge in download the app for free. Presented by Allstate Acura and McDonald's. We welcome you back. We got to know Augusta stone while she was a student at the university of Georgia and working there in media as she is now at the state and we thought we would touch base with Augusta again. First of all, just remember those calls very well and we do hope you're doing well and tell us about your career. Good afternoon. Good afternoon, Paul and thanks so much for that. I'm so excited when I got the text today. Thanks for going really well. I mean, I don't think there's a much better move than to go from one SEC school, you know, just down the road to get to cover another one. So it's been, it's been real fun, you know, getting to know Columbia and South Carolina. I've really enjoyed it so far. Yeah, I remember a couple of times we talked to you. I think one of them at least maybe both were during COVID and we were talking about the struggles of students during that and it looks like you did quite well. So tell us about what your responsibilities are at the state. Yeah, yeah. Well, they were both hearing COVID. They were both in 2020. So, I mean, luckily, things have gotten a little bit better since then, but yeah, over at the state, I primarily cover South Carolina women's basketball, which has been just a joy and a half. I love covering dawn in the program. It's been so fun. I also help out with football quite a bit, so I got to get no shame in his first year. I mean, it was a really good time to sort of step on to that beat and really get my feet wet and then start out with the women's basketball season, but that's been rolling down in Colombia. And it's been really, really fun. I've really enjoyed it. I guess that's not a bad beat covering the best team in women's basketball, right? I mean, I think about some of the things that I covered right out of school and you're definitely lapping me in this regard. What's been the reaction to that stunner on Sunday with dawn staley's team going down? Oh my goodness. So yeah, first of all, it has been absolutely amazing to eat with just, I mean, so many great matchups. I think kind of the reaction was shock, I think, especially immediately afterward, you know, just kind of the way the fourth quarter went and how, you know, the game seemed like South Carolina had it, you know, pretty, pretty much filled up until that last quarter there. I think the biggest thing, especially with the fan base right now, is that, I mean, the second loss, there's so much more ahead in CAAs. I know it sounds kind of crazy, you know, the top ranked team and have been all year, but they really do, you know, kind of get to come into the NCAA tournament with a little bit of a degree of a chip on their shoulder. You know, they just suffered a loss and they have something to work toward. I mean, in a way that diversity can only help them build up. But yeah, I think it's generally positive still. I mean, the non conference and regular season went extremely well for South Carolina. They beat, I think it was ten teams that were ranked in the top 25 of the net. So there are obviously battle tested. It's just, it's just a blip. And I think they have in CAA to prove that that was an offshoot. They can definitely correct it. So that's kind of the general nude, I'd say. Talking to Augustus stone, who we got to know it at UGA. Before as we transition to football, what was it like being in Colombia as an Alma mater was marching toward a national championship? Oh, my goodness, what a question. Very interested, I'd say. You know, it's funny how I got to keep the pulse of what was going on at all the modern because they were in the SEC. And actually, I got to make it back there in September. I think it was South Carolina's first SEC game on the road at Georgia. So I did get to the cover, at least a piece of it. It's weird, you know, you cover the team for two years and then they win a national championship as soon as you're done covering them. So in a way, it's kind of hilarious that that worked out, but I like to say I had a little bit, you know, I got a little piece of it and coverage. But yeah, no, it's funny. It is a joy to be able to stick around in the SEC and see it from that perspective, but I try not to say too much about it because I know that the rivalry and everything. So I try to be trying to be pretty careful about that. You're just that is very good advice, considering how intense that rivalry is. Now remember, before that game, we had gamecock fans who were so excited about Shane beam or thinking they were going to beat the dogs. I tried to caution them, but nobody wanted to listen. So what's it like on that campus? After an amazing season by Shane beamer, not only that, you get two great players from Oklahoma, including Spencer Rattler, who a year ago was the best quarterback in football. I mean, I can not describe the morale booth that Shane beamer has given this program. I mean, the energy is literally palpable on game days. I think he has just injected not only like the belief like you mentioned, but just excitement. And it fell especially through the month of December. I mean, I think the month started first couple weeks, that was when we found out about since a rattler in Austin soggier coming and then they go and when the duke Mayo bowl in about his special fashion as they could have, I mean, the energy right now, it's just Shane beamer has really gotten a lot of people around Columbia excited and they have, they have a lot to look forward to. I think when you look at the east specifically, there's just there's a lot of rooms for South Carolina to surge and they have all the pieces and they have that sense of belief and excitement, which I think is what kind of catapulting them right now and what played a huge role in the season that they were able to have. It was just belief. I mean,.
Is the Tide Changing for Black Conservative Voices?
"Patrick is in Augusta, Georgia, Patrick you're on the show. Thank you so much. I appreciate your call. Hi, Larry. How are you doing? I'm doing well, sir. All right. One, I wanted to is late, but you're wrong for governor, I really appreciated that. I feel like you agree. And I'm actually in Georgia and I was following Europe, but I'm a fan of yours. But I was following the race there. And it really was disheartening to hear a media outlet actually being able to print the black face of a white supremacy in that. And it made me feel like, you know what, with the black community in particular, how we don't allow for black conservatives such as speak freely and not be judged and have it like blackness question. But I'm starting to see a rise and a change in the tide I've seen with canon zones and personal walker running for the center here in Georgia. Allen Woods running for governor in Texas. And wondering one, do you feel like there is a tide is changing? And do you feel like there's a significant with a black conservatives being able to speak out and show that we are the actual fulfillment of the American Dream of dramas by just going playing within the rules, making the changes as necessary? Right. And just really representing what America stands for. And how you're taking on that, I guess would be the question. Well, Patrick, there's no question in my opinion the tide is changing. By the way, the woman that called me the blackface, the white supremacy. Her name is Erica Dee Smith, and she wrote an article just a few days ago and doubled down. It made some more insulting comments. And so I've reached out to her invited her on the show and hopefully she'll come on on Monday or Tuesday. They post it. Herschel walk and I are friends. And some months ago we were at an event together, and I told him I was thinking about running for governor. He told me he was thinking about running for senator. In Georgia, as you know, he has announced, and I said, I said, all right, Herschel, let's do it together. I'll announce you announce. And both of us laughed and we both ended up running. But yeah, there's no question about it. Things are changing. And more and more people are getting more confident about

"augusta" Discussed on American Revolution Podcast
"Thank you for joining the american revolution this week. Episode to wait fort morris and augusta a few weeks ago. I covered the british capture of savannah. Georgia this was the first real effort by the british to do anything in the southern colonies. Since sir henry clinton failed to capture fort sullivan back in early. Seventeen seventy six even that earlier. Assault in charleston harbor was a sideshow to the main british effort. From seventeen seventy six through seventeen. Seventy eight to control the middle colonies particularly new york new jersey and pennsylvania with that whole effort in the middle colonies having come to a failure the british in seventeen seventy nine focused more on trying to restore control of the southern colonies with limited armies. That they still had available in america. The cap sure savannah at the end of seventeen. Seventy eight was the kickoff to that new southern campaign george washington had already issued orders recalling continent.

He would spend the next year at relatively unimportant commands in connecticut and in the hudson valley. The new southern commander general benjamin lincoln of massachusetts had just returned from the recovery of sustained in the saratoga campaign a year earlier despite sharing in the credit for the american victory at saratoga. Lincoln's record as a military commander was shall we say limited. He'd been a militia officer before the war ecorse. Virtually every man in new england served in the militia and most officers were selected for political providence rather than military ability. Lincoln had been a minor politician and from a good family which probably led to his commission as an officer in the militia. He saw no action during the french and indian war but still managed to rise to the rank of major. He held local office in massachusetts and became a prominent patriot leader serving in the provincial. Congress and the committee of safety before.
