"In the same bed and do the same things every single day, like there's this compounding effect. And it's only been three months of doing that. Now it's been 6 months. Now I'm not like, wow. Yeah, I found that I used to be able to work on plants. I wrote big chunks of my books on planes. I could read on planes, and then it was just like, it was a second home to me. It was no different than being in the office. There's no difference in being in a hotel room. It was just a place. And then when I took this huge break, not being on planes. Now planes are total deadtime for me. It's obviously something I'm working on because I don't, you know, I don't want it to be a dead time. I do have to occasionally be on planes and as a result, I need to figure out how to use that time productively. But it's also like, I don't know if you've ever radically changed your diet, you know, you're like, hey, I cut out carbs or hey, I went plant based. You make some change in something you feel really good. You feel so much better. And then you have something from the old diet and you feel like you're going to be sick. You're like, do I have food poisoning? This is horrible. And you realize that that thing was a kind of poison. Your body was just acclimated to it. It was used to it. I tend not to eat a lot of bread. My wife is allergic to gluten, so we don't have a lot of bread in our House. But I can't eat Brett. I just don't. Like, then I'll be somewhere and there'll be pizza, I'll eat a bunch of pizza and I'll literally like just want to die. I'll feel disgusting and terrible, awful. That's how I feel about planes now. And so you realize that a lot of the things that we accept as natural are actually fundamentally unnatural, but not conducive to being in your best your best head space, your best workspace. And it's only by removing them that you realize what the costs were. And so the other thing for me was it's like, I used to think, oh, you know, you take a week off and you recharge. You know, the pandemic it took me months to get to like where I ultimately got, but that was the best spot. And now it's like, oh wow, okay, when I take breaks, I need to take longer breaks. They need to be more complete breaks. And this idea that just like, you know, going to the beach for the weekend is a way to recharge. You just realize you're probably fooling yourself. And it just takes more and less than you think. I do think the pandemic was almost a routine cleanse for people. And what you're basically doing is you're almost like slowly adding things back to the routine. And it almost feels like maybe you add something like, oh, nope, that my body is rejecting that or like my life is rejecting that thing like get rid of that again and just focus on this. Which ultimately leads to this question around as you want to get better and better at writing. Are you now at a point where you're like the Babe Ruth calling his shot or you know when you publish, this is a winner or are you still kind of like, okay, I think it's good, but let's see what the audience says.

Vin Scully Was Woven in the Fabric of the U.S.A.

"I think I can say with great confidence that this guy was the absolute greatest of all time. And more than that, Vin Scully was woven into the fabric of the USA. Once again, a standing ovation for Henry Aaron. Though the confrontation for the second time, Aaron walked in the second inning. He means the tying run at the plate now, though we'll see what downing does. Alice about delivers and his low ball one. And that just adds to the pressure. The crowd going, downing has to ignore the sound effect. And stay a professional in pitches game. One ball and no strikes, and waiting out for your deep and straight away, fast forward is a high 5 in the deep left center field, but they're both back to the city. That was Vin Scully, calling Hank aarons milestone milestone home run. When he passed Babe Ruth for the most career home runs with his 715th Homer, Vin Scully, the beloved voice of the Dodgers for 67 years. Passed away at the age of 94.

"But like she so famous that the way she behaves is completely alien. She doesn't you instead of twitter. She uses her own website instead of any of these platforms like whenever she releases. That interview was in the form of like. Sa as the harper's bazaar thing like everything is so specific and unique and she doesn't play by anyone's rules which again like. Why does she have to. She doesn't she can make the rules. But like i think it's so funny that instead of like wishing people happy birthday and any other way on twitter on facebook on instagram. She uses her website. Everything has to go through the beyond say funnel which goes through beyond say dot com like. It's so weird and all these photos. She can't even just wish someone happy birthday you know. She has to wish them. Happy birthday with the photo that you have to assume they provided to her because these photos don't exist anywhere else but like pinks. Grandma's house and yet there is a photo of pink that no one has ever seen before. Like sometimes i recognize the photo. Sometimes i'm like. Oh i've seen that photo like been used before or that's like the photos that they always give further. But then sometimes you're like is this a new did beyond to get like an exclusive baby photo of mother teresa. That's not true. I've seen that photo. Like taking an exclusive photo of daily porter to be on to get an exclusive photo. Gloria estefan or nick jones. Because i've never seen these before. I've never seen that babies. Like where's the where's the like. Beyond se exclusive badged. Like you know it's just so strange and the and and everybody's them but it is funny because it's like bernie sanders next to blake lively next to billy porter. All baby photos like bernie sanders baby photo and who where which archive is that from. But the only way you can behave like this and get people to send you stuff like this is to be as famous as beyond say. It's so weird. She's just like truly the a one of a kind. You mentioned earlier. It's fascinating also that she now does all of her like everything she does. She does through her own website even promote for like even her tiffany campaign which he just put out is like through her because for some reason she's created that being like the main place you go for her it's like it's easier for them to promote just through that channel then to just release through other channels they get it in a magazine or whatever. She's she's taken that like. Why give anything to the press when you have your own instagram thing to the next level like truly the next level without without launching person. Who can do this because like you're not gonna go like every famous person that i want to follow which any by the nature of our job is a lot of them like i'm not gonna go.

Is Shohei Ohtani 'The New Babe Ruth' or Something Entirely New?

"Here is passing. Never seen a player like shohei ohtani babe. Ruth was playing against pitchers who were thrown eighty-five miles an hour. Shohei otani is doing this. Against an average fastball of ninety three point five miles per hour average breaking ball. That's unlike anything babe ruth ever saw on top of that he is facing hitters on the pitching mound who were better than they have ever been also and the fact that he has a two point seven nine. Era now in one hundred things which the third best in the american league while at the same time leading all of baseball with forty home runs. It sounds ridiculous because is ridiculous. We have not seen anyone like this in history and the only thing that i hope for greenie is that shohei ohtani can stay healthy because that is all. That's keeping him from being brilliant year after year after year so greatest individual major league baseball season of any player. certainly in our lifetimes. right. I think so. I mean 'cause pitching is a completely different skill than hitting. This isn't i mean to me. It's almost akin to bo jackson playing two different sports. Yes dion sanders like it's. It's almost two different sports to be that good as a pitcher and that goes here.

"As everyone gets seated. There's a feeling of excitement in the air. The loudspeakers start playing. Take me out to the ball game. The crowd sings along. You're the crack of a baseball against a bat. The game has begun. If you're familiar with baseball. To these nicknames sound familiar the sultan of swat the great bambino the colossus of clout. These are all nicknames for one of the most famous baseball players to have ever lived babe. Ruth babe ruth wasn't his real name. His real name was george. Herman ruth junior. He was born in baltimore maryland on february. Six eighteen ninety-five his grandparents were immigrants from europe so the first language he spoke with german curling up his dad owned and ran a saloon. Their ruth really did whatever he wanted. He didn't have many rules and just ran wild with his friends through the streets of town and with his dad being busy with the business ruth got into a lot of trouble in fact he got into so much trouble and his parents can control him so they had to put him in saint mary's industrial school. This was a special school for boys who needed more structure than their parents. Were able to give them at home at the school. One of ruth's teachers brother matthias loved baseball. He taught the boys how to play and ruth got into the game too. He ended up living at the school for twelve years. And they're got a basic education and learn some life skills use these skills and became a shirt maker and can make things out of wood known as carpentry. Ruth kept playing baseball and when he was nineteen. He tried out and made the minor league team for the baltimore orioles. The other players teased ruth because he was a favourite or darling of the owner. Jack done because of this. They started calling him babe. This is how babe ruth famous nickname was born. Even though babe ruth was a big success with the orioles the owner ran into money trouble and he was forced to sell his best players to the major leagues from their ruth was sent to play for the boston red sox when he first started playing he was a left handed pitcher but really wanted to bat more so he started playing outfield and first base. He tried to hit almost everything and because of that he struck out a lot but he was very determined and never gave up. He even said that every strike brings me closer to the next homerun and the red sox fans loved him because he hit a lot of home runs one year. He hit home runs in four games in a row the next year he helped the red sox when the world series in nineteen eighteen and nineteen nineteen ruth was sold to the new york yankees. The red sox sold him because the owner wanted more money and babe ruth was worth a lot and the new york yankees wanted him because they hoped he could help them win a world series. There were lots of mixed reactions to him. being traded. some boston fans were devastated to lose ruth while others thought he was just too much trouble while he wasn't playing baseball he spent a lot of time partying and sometimes getting into trouble but the boston fans who liked ruth believe that trading him started an eighty four year curse during which the red sox did not win a world series it was called the curse of the bambino before he was traded. The red sox won five of the fifteen world series that they'd played but after they sold ruth they didn't win another world series until two thousand and four with ruth. The new york yankees did very well. In fact they won the world series four times and they won the american league title. Seven times when ruth was traded to the yankees. He became a fulltime outfielder and was now able to bat. All the time he hit homerun after homerun and the new york fans loved him during his first year. The yankees had a record number of people at the stadium. One point two million. It was the first time that any major league baseball game. Attendance had reached one million during his thirteen years with the yankees. He became the highest paid player up to that point making two and a half times more than any other player in the league. At the time. Ruth even made more money than the president of the united states on the team. He was part of a group of players called murderers row. They got that name from the power of the hitters. These players were earle. combs mark. Conic lou gehrig. Bob musil tony. Lozari and babe ruth. Sadly ruth spent many years of his life drinking too much alcohol and not taking care of his health. He also spent most of the money he made on things he didn't need and that didn't help better his life. Because of his poor health choices he began to have trouble running the bases and catching the ball. He played his last full season with the yankees. In nineteen thirty four. Ruth wanted to become a manager of a team but didn't have any luck finding a position but like hitting home runs. Ruth was never wanted to give up. He once said you just can't beat the person who never gives up. Eventually he was traded to the boston. Braves as a gate attraction. This means he was hired not necessarily because he was good anymore but because he'd been famous and would cause people to pay to come see him at the game babe. Ruth retired early that year in nineteen thirty five. The next year he was inducted into the baseball hall of fame he became popular at a time. When baseball became very popular in the united states and known as america's pastime one reason was because the world had just gone through the first world war and the nineteen eighteen flu pandemic which were very tragic times and many lives were lost. American needed something good and positive to focus on baseball and sports figures like babe. Ruth became a symbol of that optimism and fun pastime he also symbolized an american dream that someone who came from very little money and didn't have a well known family could become famous. His life also showed us that it's important to take care of yourself and set rules for yourself. If we want our bodies to work well we need to take care of them. By eating good foods and exercising babe. Ruth worked very hard and took risks to become one of the greatest homerun hitters of all time he wants said. Never let the fear of striking out. Get in your way. This means that there are many things you can worry about in life or fears that you may have keep you from acting but like babe ruth if you worry too much about striking out you'll never get those things done and swing the bat and make the move. You need to take the next step in life for you. This might mean trying out for a sport or learning how to draw or some other skill. Don't worry about what others might say or do. Don't worry about striking out and just act like babe ruth. We hope you enjoyed this episode about babe ruth. Be sure to tune in next monday for a new episode..

You know you said in an interview last year two thousand twenty interview with variety that it is quote the only thing i write about meaning parenthood. Are you writing to that theme to that. Through line in shaping the collection that you're working on consciously in that way in the moment or is that unifying threads something that emerges organically as you're planning your tales right. Yeah it's really a question. It is one hundred percent the ladder. It is totally accidental. You know a.

Welcome to the Dan Bongino show. I'm Dan Bongino. And, gosh, that feels good to say. Been a really long road. I never thought this would happen. And this moment is bittersweet. Mean bitter sweet in the real meaning of the phrase Bitter sweet, Not like Joe Biden says it where he screws it up and doesn't know what it means. But sweet because I get to talk to you now every day from 12 noon to three. On talk radio, which has been the heartbeat of this nation for decades now. But why is talk radio conservative talk radio specifically liberal. Screw it up. I tried that whole experiment with talk radio didn't really work. You know, we actually care about the issues. So we do this stuff and do it all the time and do it well, But why is talk radio the heartbeat of this nation? Why has it been for 30 years? Well, I could tell you most certainly isn't because of Dan Bongino. It's because of the greatest of all time. Titan of this industry, a giant Rush in Amman. That's the bitter part. Rush Limbaugh You're used to hearing for decades now me as well. We used to hearing his booming voice in your ear. This time block for 30 years. He's a giant. The Godfather. They say often, it's not just that Rush Limbaugh was the greatest player in the game. Rush Limbaugh was the greatest player in the game for 30 years. And it's not just that Rush Limbaugh was the M V P of the game for 30 years. Rush Limbaugh. Created the game. You know, you think of the greats in any business. Gretzky, Jordan, Babe Ruth. They had great 15 20 year runs. They weren't MVPs for 20 years. But they didn't invent basketball, hockey and baseball respectively. National conservative talk radio. Was practically invented by Rush Limbaugh. I want to say to the Patriots out there who've spent your time being educated, informed and entertained by the greatest talk radio host there ever will be for the last 30 years. Can't replace him. May sit in his time slot and it's the greatest honor of my life to do this. My first love has always been radio. But I can't replace him.

Has he been just as impactful and influence in influential on. The game is elgin baylor. Yeah let me know. But also julius erving was a guy who grew up watching these guys. He grew up Elgin baylor bill. Russell will chamberlain. Some of these guys weren't afraid. So some of these guys are his compatriots contemporary. So you know. And julius has also been one of these guys who has always stated we need to get. Today's public involved more aware of what happened in the nba. Before larry in michael imagine came into the league. I mean he was one of those words kind of like. Why aren't we showed him more clips showing more Video tapes weren't we giving more love. Why don't we showing more respect. Weren't we talking more about the pioneers. The folks who built this game to where it is right. now why are we ignoring the oscar. Robertson's why are we ignoring the bill. Russell's why are we not giving the certain amount of respect to wilt chamberlain. Why are we not giving more love to elgin baylor. So julius serving was has been A strong advocate for that. Don't his first second team. At least you didn't pull himself on there so it's all relative i'm not gonna how. How the hell are you going to sit there and say oscar. Robertson is not one of the greatest players of all time or wilt chamberlain or bill russell or magic. Or larry. Or mj kareem. It's it's all it's all based on once thoughts in opinions and definitions of what an ep. What a great player is all about. Are we talking about championships. Are we talking about numbers.

Where would i put jerry west. Where would i put kobe bryant. Where will i put kareem. Were if if i'm going to have an all if i'm going to have a greatest team starting five whatever. I can't have wilt chamberlain and bill russell in my starting five because both of those guys are center centers. I have wilt chamberlain bill russell and kareem abdul-jabbar. Even if i was putting together a team put together your swatted. The greatest players ever played. I can't have will bill russell including a jabbar all my same team.

"More possessions. More statistical opportunities restrictions on defenders. They've been trying to promote more freedom. More movement on offense players are more encouraged to shoot three point shots which means that long rebounds happened a lot more. Now you're speaking about three. Ought to brace where you have. The shooter go to the corner. The shoot a three pointer which lends itself to more rebounding opportunities. This is what reynolds was talking about in the piece that he did about the three point. Shot so you know. Basically it's like well you know again. Westbrook has more opportunities to get a triple double. I'm sorry when oscar robertson averaged his triple double in the nineteen sixty one fifty two season. Do you remember the statistical overflow. That was happening the typical throw up. That was happening in the league. Nineteen sixty one sixty two. That was the year that will enable an average fifty points a game and scored one hundred and one game. That was the year that elgin baylor average. I believe. Thirty eight points per game and like eighteen rebounds a game playing only on the weekend because he was enlisted in the army. There was a lot of statistical light incredible anomalies going on to wear oscar robertson averaging thirty seven points a game fourteen fifteen rebounds ten eleven assists per game. Take a look at the take a look at the points per game during the nineteen sixty one sixty two season and it was a eighteen league during that time i think the lowest scoring team in the league was at one hundred twelve hundred and thirteen points again. You had multiple teams that year averaging one hundred and twenty four hundred and twenty seven hundred and twenty eight points a game. How many shots do you think they were putting up during a game. So if you wanna use the argument toward russell westbrook his triple doubles being devalued or does not that big of a deal because of the way that the games played the points that are being scored in the way defenders can defend people and the advent of the three point shot. And how important that's become. That might be fine and you could use that. You could make an argument out of that. But then again. If i'm sitting there also and i want to foolishly tried to diminish with oscar robertson data nineteen sixty one sixty two. I can say well how many scoring opportunities many rebounding opportunities. How many assists opportunities do you think that's robertson had in the league where the medium four scoring port with somewhere around one hundred and eighteen and you only have eighteen in that lead. So you're speaking about opportunities that could triple doubles robertson. Tired of playing what. Maybe over forty minutes a game. Averaging over forty minutes a game and a season where again you will chamberlain scoring over fifty. You had walt bellamy scoring over thirty. I think the top five or six players in the nba as scoring wives concern. Where all over thirty points. A game shelter being put up. Lana shot for being put up..

"But yeah you could take a look and you know what he's not the greatest shooter you can take a look in. He's a horrific three point shooter. You can take a look and point out all its warts two game. You can take a look at the defensive miscues. He has because it gambling with throws all of the defense atl whack. You can take a look at his high turnover again because if you're going to go ahead and share the sugar that you know sometimes it's going to spill on the floor. If you take a look at the point guards throughout history who average a lot of assists magic isaiah thomas. John stockton mark jackson. Those guys those guys steve nash. Those guys also had t- high turnover rates because when you have the ball in their hands as much as they did and you're qualified or you're responsible for making so many things happen then. Yeah the spectacular unbelievable thread. The needle type passes that we see on the highlight films. It's not the only time. Those scouts through those passes during the game matching tried that past five times during the game. Three of them metalwork to the might have been intercept intercepted. And then you throw in two more other normal turnovers throughout the game. Magic's going to have fifteen assistant. Four turnovers the going around to go along with eighteen points in in twelve rebounds. So you wanna go ahead and point out the wards of russell westbrook because of his high turnover rate. Yeah five six. Sometimes seven turnovers accompanied by a triple double might take some of the gleam might take some of the shine off of what he did. But you know what. If you're going to tell somebody what's brooklyn's gonna give you thirty to twenty and fifteen tonight but he's also going to have eight turnovers or he's also seven turnovers. You will take that damn right you would take them and you can't you cannot discount or disrespect how hard he plays every single night. You can't do that and you can't discount or you can take into effect or you can't make the assumption because he's mean to the media sometimes three hundred and attitude or can't be surly he can be difficult at times because he's not blowing kisses in trying to jump in front of every microphone in every camera. You can't then equate that to well. He's a difficult person coach or he's the bad team multiple players who have been teammates of russell westbrook. A westbrook has praised him in terms.

You know you stop what you're doing because when you come to the plate now only is it excitement.

"I'm your host wonderwall so glad that you could be with us. A lot of things discussing it down on today. In the world of sports major league baseball people talk about the greatest rivalry in the game being the boston. Red sox and the new york yankees and four over the large portion of the history of the game. That would be a true statement. The yankees and the red sox have put on some memorable type of series and moments of course the curse of the bambino and all that bullshit but into the lore of the game. Used to be america's game but we have new sheriff in town. We have a new team in town. This called the la dodgers and the san diego padres. They have now usurped. The yunky and the red sox is having the best rivalry in that sport interesting series this past weekend through sixty eight innings the padres in the dodgers or the sixty eight innings. They played so far this season. This was the second series this past weekend. The second series between the padres and the dodgers the sixty eight innings dodge lead at the end of twenty five of the innings. The padres of lead at the end of twenty two teams were tied for twenty one team to play sixty eight innings and were separated by two one run for fewer in sixty one of them at four one hundred twenty four of the one hundred and twenty two hundred and twenty plate appearances after the sixth inning. In the seven games the score between the dodgers and padres was either tied or the tying run at the plate or on bass series. Finale sunday was absolutely crazy. San diego won an extra innings. Eight seven after trailing seven one going into the seventh escorted runs in each of the next three innings to force the game into extra probably wouldn't have happened. Hopefully if this was a playoff game or a game of greater consequence later on in the season because dustin may was rolling while you would take him out and then put david price. During this portion of the season. I understand why but came back to bite him again. In april it's not to be the determining factor in terms of the dodger. Doing well even though there's scuffing right now even though they're stumbling right now and the hundred sixty two flipping gains which means that they're gonna have streaks like they had before and they're gonna have streaks like they're on right now in terms of losing is concerned but i'm quite sure the streaks of them winning are going too far surpass the streets of losing their still the best team in baseball there still the deepest team in baseball. I don't know sometimes with some of these losing streak. Sometimes you can get back into a little bit of reality and thought process in terms of the thoughts are breaking one.

He's been up to bat more than eleven thousand times and at the start of this particular game. He has seven hundred and fourteen home runs. Seven hundred and fourteen is a very important number this moment on april eighth nineteen seventy four. It is the most home runs ever hit by a single major league baseball player but two players have reached. That number hank. Aaron is tied with the legendary babe ruth. They've each hit seven hundred fourteen home runs and tonight. Aaron will hit number seven fifteen. The atmosphere should be celebratory and it is but in the clubhouse before the game things are unusually quiet. The braves have decided not to let the press inside. Aaron has been hounded by reporters for months and not just by reporters. He's also received close to a million pieces of mail. A third of them negative. Some of the letters have included death threats from white fans who don't want to see a black man take babe ruth's record people have written that they're going to sneak into the stands with a gun and take matters into their own hands so while aaron knows that this might be the most important baseball game of his life.

Remembering Atlanta Braves legend and longtime MLB home run king Hank Aaron

"It was a sad day in baseball last week. When hank aaron passed away at age eighty six. One of the all time greats sluggers in baseball history. He wasn't amazing player. An amazing person. And when you think about hank. Aaron and his impact on a game it was tremendous. Think about this hank. Aaron played in the negro leagues hank. Aaron came up to the big leagues and was a star from day one. And when you look at his body of work. It is an incredible incredible degree of consistency. When you think that hank aaron batted three oh five. Seven hundred and fifty five home runs almost averaged hundred. Rbi is twenty three seasons and think about this. If you took away as seven hundred and fifty five home runs from his hit total he still would have three thousand hits. Which by itself get you into the hall of fame so not only does he have three thousand hits. He has a five hundred home. More than five hundred home runs. Those two are markers for me that automatically get my vote and then when you think about what he had to go through to become the homerun champ and the hey and the threats and the racism that was pointed towards him. Think about that People saying that they were going to shoot him. Kill his kids and this guy never never came undone never lashed out at people never got angry. Just kept playing ball kept his head down. He is definitely someone you can admire. And then he did weeks that milestone passing babe ruth and what a monumental moment that was when hank aaron became the all time home run king and i know people some people say he's still my home run king and is not barry bonds and i don't really wanna get into the whole debate about this. This is about hank. Aaron and what he did. I respect what hank aaron put up his numbers he put up but in the record books he's number two and that's where he is and that's what i respect and there's nothing wrong with being number two when when you put up the body of work that hank aaron has done he will be missed. What an impact. He's had and the grace and the dignity everything he play with and he was a world series champion and he was a steady as a as a as a get. Never hit fifty home runs. How can a guy play twenty years. Hit all those home runs and never had those big years over fifty. It's it's an amazing amazing accomplishment. And hank aaron will definitely be missed

"Aaron hit two Go past Babe Ruth with number 715. He went out to hit 40 more home runs before his career was over, and that it's 7 55. And then you heard from the great Larry King, who passed away this weekend at the age of 87, a very funny back and forth, which Seinfeld We're thinking about doing a day for both of those gentlemen later on in the week, But we start with that. The passing of two legends baseball great Hank Aaron and I guess interview slash news Great. Worry King with that, said Bernard McGurk. Good morning, said Rosenberg. It's not beautiful morning for either of those gentlemen, though they did. They did live. Great lives. I have to tell you about Hank. You know, I know he had a rough time earlier, Not only on almost about his whole career. Well, let me just say this. I saw him. Uh, I believe it was just before the pandemic I saw interviewed. By a rod in the ESPN Boof and he seemed like a very happy man. He was a very happy guy. He was a very nice guy. But don't confuse the issue. When he hit that home run to go past Babe Ruth and 1974. You would think that was a celebratory moment for Hank Aaron. He received more death threats. And I know you say everybody gets that threats. They will let you know. I know it was. It was awful. So so, yes, he had a nice life in the end, and he was a very It was a gracious man of Very nice man, but it was not easy he was not able to enjoy. And I said this morning to Frank. That's part of my frustration with the modern day athletes. When LeBron James wins championships, he's beloved. He's revered black people, white people, There's a million's and millions of little white kids walk around wearing LeBron James jerseys. Whether it's Cleveland, Miami or the Lakers. Hank Aaron never really enjoyed that type of thing. So to me, it's kind of a bitter sweet deal for Hank, and he came into the league very shortly after Jackie Robinson broke the barriers, so he actually started Hank out. Glad you mentioned that in the Negro leagues. Yes, he did so short stay. There was one team called the Wolves at the Cleveland clowns or something like that, that he started. Yes, he was a Cleveland guy. In fact, why Firestone is gonna tell us a story later on about how we used to go to Cleveland Brown games. Sit there on the stands with really like a mask on so people didn't recognize him. He never asked for a free ticket. He never asked to sit in the box or VIPs treatment. He went like a member of the dog pound because that's how he was and went to Cleveland games if you watch the Chiefs and Bill's last night in Kansas City, They would Arrowhead Stadium and in Kansas City. I should say they have a museum for the Negro Leagues. The Kansas City Monarchs was a very popular baseball team in those leagues, and that is where Henry started very short time. And then, of course, Had that brilliant career with the Braves and the Brewers. Let me correctly, it was it was the Indianapolis Clown. Yeah, but then the Braves right and the minor league system and he just what we talked about last week with the former Yankees player. Roy White, Ivory White, I'm not with the King Day he went through the same crap saint in the south. And even worse because again, he was breaking records set by legendary God like white men like Babe Ruth, and nobody wanted that. Nobody wanted that. So he had them with 7 55. Of course, he's not the home run King. Statistically that belongs to Barry Bonds. He ended with 762 7 more than Hank Aaron. But the old time pants, a traditional baseball fans. They consider Hank Aaron, the home run king to this day, because Barry Bonds you steroids that that's a big argument. Of course, we all know that Barry Bonds went from looking like Oracle to the rock. Overnight and so Yeah, I know. I know you're going to say, Look it technically, stories doesn't help you. I hand eye coordination hit the ball. I did say that, but it doesn't make you more powerful. It does I like I said. This morning, you go from warning track power to home run power, evidenced by Brady Anderson, a former Baltimore Oriole player that never hit home runs and hit 50 in one season. When he came back into camp looking three times bigger than he was the year before. So it does. And that's why Barry Bonds is not in the Hall of Fame. Correct. So I would say I would. I would agree with the traditionalists that really Hank Aaron holds the title. You were thinking our guy I actually saw Hank Aaron hit a home run in Shea Stadium. Is that the early seventies? I swear to God Never never forget it. Never forget it. Wow. In the early seventies, I was there. And I saw him hit a home run. I was staying. I was actually standing when he hit it. And it was before he broke the record, but nevertheless, he was on track to beat the record s so it's something that stuck in my head all these years. That is huge. He was a member, and we'll move off this here of the first trio ever. Hit 40 home runs on the same team. I think Colorado's done it since maybe others there were three members of the same Atlanta brave team to hit 40 plus home runs in the same season. They were the first to do it. It was Darrell Evans. It was Hank Aaron, and it was the former manager of the New York Mets. Davey Johnson. Well, there you have it. Davey Johnson also made the very last out in the 1969 World Series when he flew out to center field when the Mets beat the Baltimore Orioles to win it..
