I'm not familiar. nope apparently not he was the he was the guy that the Yankees trotted out. Into right field after they had sent Babe. Ruth packing. Bay went on back to Boston to play his final year and George. selkirk was a wonderful wonderful player. But they would always say after they talked about how good he was. I would say one thing he's no Babe Ruth and the same thing say out the you know that's you can definitely say that but give me a break he's no digital, but he is coming I, feel like I'm actually the guy who preceded Lou Gehrig. It's more like while. I'm the Wa. Wa Wait Till Barrels, volley pipping you essentially you're. Now well when one one can only hope that that is tremendous stuff.

Hank Aaron: Breaking the Home Run Record
"On April Eighth Nineteen seventy four Atlanta Braves outfielder Henry Louis Aaron better known as Hank, his seven hundred fifteenth home run finally breaking the record of the legendary Babe Ruth like everyone else in the country I've been following errands pursuit of the record since the previous season. He played in the Negro Leagues in the Early Nineteen Fifties, and now here he was just two home runs away new but the excitement was undercut by a sense of alarm as errands quest unleashed a torrent of vicious racism baseball is the quintessential American sport. Now, an African American, a dark skinned black man challenging the power, the supremacy of baseball and of white men. That's why the hate mail death threats bomb threats. This was driving a stake at the heart of American culture. Has All this made you more aware than you're a black baseball player? I've never forgotten. Later, he would confess that he was afraid. He wouldn't live long enough to break the record. Then at the start of the nineteen, seventy, four season. All. Of all. Errands triumph was electrified By the end of his Major League career nine, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, six, he had hit a total of seven hundred and fifty five home runs. Errands record would stand for more than thirty years. The braves retired his number and he was elected to the hall of fame. To. This Day Hank Aaron is considered one of baseball's greatest players.

"We're on 78. Every Saturday morning last week we had a caller who asked about Theresa, right, signed letter. Theresa, right, played Lou Gehrig's wife in pride of the Yankees, and I looked up some things on eBay that it's sold. And signed contracts only sold of hers from 25 to $65 an eight by eight saying photo 105 So probably somewhere. In that range for the letter. So it's cool be a cool display, especially made out it was made out to the collar personally, That's pretty neat keeper. Actually, now here's something that did sell for a lot. Pride of the Yankees. Cast signed Baseball, which included Babe Ruth, Gary Cooper and Teresa Wright, sold in a Huggins and Scott February 2013 auction. $3750 for that. That's pretty cool when they think that Babe Ruth was actually in the Lou Gehrig movie, you know what I mean? That's really kind of neat. And Gary Cooper. Was a good Lou Gehrig. Except he looked like a bad athlete. Get those guys looked like they could, and they're trying to play a slugger. That's kind of unusual. Willie sent me. Through Twitter. A direct message, he said. Check this out and collect in the 1996 n ba top 50 player's autographs. He has 22 of the 50. No. He gets most of his autographs by attending N B. A All Star weekend, which is that's an awesome to get him. He says. What do you think the value of this he gets all 50? Well, one thing they saw Huggins. It's a lot really. Depends like Let's say you have Michael Jordan rookie card signed as your signature or a Maravich signed rookie or you have that Will Chamberlain card from upper deck? That was he sign that it wasn't I mean, then that adds a ton of value. But if they're mostly cut signatures with Like base cards in the display. I think Huggins had a top 60 where they added 10 more of their favorites and that sold for 4000 So you know probably 3 4000. And potentially more. If it's a real hard to get those air. Probably three of the biggest from that group. Signature wise where they could be. A lot is Jordan Maravich. And Wilt. I would think, And we have Dennis from Palestinian waiting on line when they have their dentists made. My son is too. Meat from the 97 98 floor, Don Bolles, So they're folding tears, the folding chairs. They're the ones who are right on the floor, okay, And they're also their number in there also says it one year they don't know what game there are from like Canada in ship. So the championship that's cool. They have a letter from the Bulls with them. No, they don't have a letter of the bulls, but they do have on their gold plated. I think saying, what what number it is and what game it's from. Very cool. Now. Bill Huggins with things climbing a little higher from after the last dance with what do you think those might go for? In a Huggins and sky? Jack. I don't know that I've seen it before. But I like the fact that they've got the The little things attacks to him that say what it is and what game it from Mother. That's very key, and you know things could be I don't know 500 to 1000. I would think, eat some. They're on their worst day and who knows on their best day because with an added to it, I think that there's a lot of potential now a bigger item like that. That's really that ship a ble bill. How How would you work that if a Chicago area guy had a big item, let's say he was even bigger than that. There's We've had lots of items over the years, Tom that I still have a have a few. And in this auction where we work with the consign er and they just need Work with our writing team and our photographer to take pictures and give us details about the item. And then it really we We put that it's available for pickup in the Chicago area effectively. Yeah, or if for some reason A person who wanted Once that ship I mean, the consignment could take it to. Ah. Ah, facility and they will pack it up to chip it foryou, not chief. But The the way underpaid, poured one way or another, like for instance, here, see delivery could handle something like that. Somebody in the Chicago area and then you could do it for sure, if if the buyers in Chicago and the sellers in Chicago Yep. And we have enough resource is where we could get the best possible price in the industry and we will protect it and ship it to the buyer of the auction. Now, Vince, come anyhow. Would somebody get in touch with the air sea delivery, either if they have Something like that. Or let's say somebody today is like I got to get this refrigerator moved to my my son's house like today. How did they get a holy year? See delivery could just simply caused 6305161199. It would be happy to take care of for very good. Anybody in particular they asked for. They asked for you or what? They just call the number you answer. The phone could handle it, but they're certainly welcome to ask for me. Vince Clemente at ear see delivery. Okay. That was some good call. I have a question. Can you guys explain to me what made that Mike Trout card the most expensive card ever like? It's not gold? Is it because it's rare? What made that Ray, why rarity is huge, and over the last couple of years, there's been a lot of big money. Guys who are looking for The best possible card or cards or whatever collectible of the best players, somebody with too much disposable. And I mean, you know when that LeBron card win for a million eight, the high end Honestly, prices that I never imagine, 10 years ago, a newer things that like you knew there was big money on Babe Ruth High grade cards and Honus Wagners tobacco card stuff like that, But the stuff from the last 20 and 30 years how high it's going, There's a whole new market of big money guys making Just big money stuff. So it's good. Like I've got stuff that was in my back room that five years ago. It wasn't valueless, but it was just sitting in the back room. Some of that stuff. You get that grated now and it can be Over 1000 per card, and it's just amazing how hot some things have gotten it. It's a whole new market this whole 2020 You just 2020 is the perfect example of a year. Obviously just living that you have to go with the flow and and adjust to what's going on. But In business You just have to. I mean, my store is doing really well, but it's You won't even know it's the same store from a year ago. I get products in from The card Cos I'm tightly allocated. I hardly get any and the restock prices they're so high. I don't even re stack on things anymore. I mean, If I made it A This is one thing that I don't change when I think something is too high price to make it worth selling it in the store that if I have to pay extra get it that I have to sell it. Then I don't get it. I'd rather not have it and I'm doing fine with that. I mean some of the prices on boxes of things Eric are just like Through the roof and brand new products. It's really It's been an incredible year. Now. Now, Vince for Air Sea delivery. How have you had to adjust like, how is that changed your businesses here? Well, I think some of the bigger stuff with the truck work cutout went down. But yet the medical we do a lot of turnout. Maintain levels of that increased show, and some of the bigger stuff is coming back. Slowly. But surely so. You know, any time you can stay open and do okay, I think especially in this economy right now. You're doing okay. So work, Rachel. Well, if you do have something you need delivered contact Vince commenting at ear, See? Delivery? I'm demand delivery. They literally could come into somebody needed a refrigerator delivered today..
Republican Jewish Coalition official makes the Jewish case for the Republican party
"As the Republican National Convention dominated the news this week I sat down with Matt Brooks the Executive Director of the Republican Jewish coalition to hear him make the Jewish case for the Republican. Party. Just a reminder AJC is a five. Oh, one C. Three, not for profit organization that neither endorses nor opposes candidates for Elective Office Matt. Thank you so much for joining US Saffy. It's great to be with you. Thanks for having me AJC held a series of virtual programs last week at the Democratic National Convention and we're doing the same this week alongside the RNC you spoke at. An Age RNC program yesterday and you guaranteed the Donald Trump will win a larger percentage of Jewish vote in two thousand twenty than he did in two thousand sixteen. What makes you so confident of that first of all, my understanding of the politics of the Jewish community I've been doing this job for thirty years. So I think I have a very good feel for the Jewish community. But then the most important reason is to look at the record of this president There is no question that he has been without a doubt, the most pro Israel president ever in history. That's not coming just from Matt Brooks, but it's coming from people like the prime, minister of Israel has said as much in the Oval Office in meeting with them. So there's a reason why fifty six percent of the Israelis who were polled in a recent poll would like to see president trump reelected and only sixteen percent. WanNa see Joe Biden reelected because they understand that this president is absolutely transformed the US's relationship beyond that Steph. Touch on domestic issues I think people in the Jewish community are deeply concerned about what's happening in our big cities whether it's Portland Seattle New, York, the lawlessness, the rioting, the efforts by the left wing progressives in the Democratic Party who want to defend the police. I. Think People in the Jewish community understand that president trump giving his incredible track record. Pre covid is the best person to revitalize our economy postcode and also recreate and bring back all the jobs that were lost as a result of this pandemic. So I think there's a wide range. Of issues that both foreign and domestic that to me give me great confidence to have my back moment point into the stands and guarantee that this president will do better among Jewish voters and twenty twenty than he did in two thousand sixteen was the Yankee Fan I. Appreciate any reference to Babe Ruth let me just follow up on that though you pivoted and spoke about domestic issues at the end, which obviously are very important. You started out with Israel though I'm curious does the RJ see any kind of polling or anything like that indicates that the? Percentage of American Jews do vote based on. Israel. My sense is generally not at top issue for American Jews. So we do have extensive polling and we're very data driven in our messaging and how we look at the races you know, I think your point is well taken but you know elections and campaigns about mosaics. It's about putting pieces of the puzzle together. It's not just one issue. There is definitely a segment of the Jewish community that does care about Israel we're going to appeal to them. There's definitely a segment of the Jewish community that appealed issues. Like school choice we're going to appeal to them. There's definitely segments of the Jewish community the care about the issue of defunding the police and having law and order in our streets in protecting us against anti-semitism. So we're GONNA have various messages targeted to various constituencies within the Jewish community. Our community as you well know is not monolithic. So to say that there is one issue that's gonNA drive the Jewish vote would be a mistake but I think we have enough experience and expertise in this arena to make sure that we're serving up the right messages. One issue that you just mentioned Matt is is Antisemitism Joe. Biden actually laid the cornerstone of his campaign on President Trump's comments after the unite the right rally in Charlottesville in his video announcing his candidacy, and then again last week when he accepted the nomination, vice president. Biden cited the president's very fine people on both sides comment at which he saw as excusing anti Semitism he cited those comments as motivating him to get into the race to beat the president. How would you want Jewish voters to think about those comments? Well, I, mean, that's going to be part of our task and we've had several events both with Nikki Haley Mark Levin with Senator Ted Cruz just this last Sunday night you know in which we've talked about that there is a mythology that has taken hold by the Democrats to try and create a false narrative that the president Or somehow tried to give support to white nationalist. If anybody takes a step back reads the entire transcript and admittedly I wish he had been clearer and less awkward in his original remarks when we put out a statement to that effect. But if you read a few sentences before and a few sentences after very fine people on both sides, it's very clear that the president strongly condemns White Nationalist Neo Nazis, and you know it is absolutely unambiguous also to some of his other speeches in actions you go back and look right after the tree of life synagogue tragedy he gave a speech that day to the future farmers of America No. President no president go back and take a look at the record, and you'll agree if you read the opening speech, no president has ever condemned anti-semitism and planted a flag about us and our strong commitment to fight anti-semitism wherever it raises its ugly head, and then obviously you look at what the president did it on his executive order to help protect students on college campuses who have been the victims of anti-semitism and I will tell you time and time. Again, this president has by action demonstrated his commitment, not only to condemn white. Nationalist Neo. Nazis. But also to stand up and take strong stands against the rising antisemitism in this country.

Turning a passion for sports into a career
"And today we're GONNA start off in South East South Dakota In Minot saying hello to Randy Taylor Cherokee Cowboy and pro announcer. He is also choctaw and he is the host of native voice one radio segment word with champ. Thanks for joining us for another native America. Calling Randy the pleasures mindshare. Hello Hello so Randy. When we think about being that athlete and then there comes a time to start a new chapter We turn to you and talk to me. A little bit about Having a career in sports it's been somewhat natural for me. My Dad was a race. Car driver He was a first generation race car driver. His popularity grew in the sixties after starting on a drag racing strip and then he continued in dirt track circuit racing in Oklahoma where I'm from. They called it super modified and then he graduated industry car right think which went with the big boys. We moved to Tennessee and then came back home where he were. Instead of building and designing and driving cars he simply showed up to the race track with a helmet bag so my life in sports. I would say that certainly began with him and his dedication and watching him win lose crash and continue to follow a passion that he had and and I think that developed my passion for sports starting and wrestling and the child sports that we do in in peewee baseball pop warner football and continued on into the Rodeo circuit. So that that's how I began. And it's been a blessing for me ever shits insulated when you think of being that athlete and then moving into the position that du Sir that you feel very well now How do you think that to work together? Beat ANNOUNCER AND ACTUALLY. What's happening There in the arena. I feel that the opportunity to have accepted victory and defeat and knowing what it takes to be successful and what sports comes defeat. I mean. That's huge you know you look Babe Ruth. He struck out more than he had home runs and he's probably the greatest Baltron as many other athletes. Are I believe that There are some announcers that are dedicated to being announced that. Do not have a background in sports but I think they have to really dig in and dig within themselves and do a lot of research but are believed that being an athlete from the ground up as provides a lot of authenticity. When you know how a man feels or a woman feels when they when they're experiencing that in the arena and then transferring the emotion to a a ticket by customer. What when that does happen. Or maybe even your ability to interpret. Why certain While in the Rodeo arena. It's not plays but but maybe why Even a bull did something that it did. You have that kind of insight in a lot of times when we are those athletes in action We don't necessarily know what those lessons that we learn as were moving and competing What they may help us with in the Future Randy. When you think about that knowledge you regaining when you were in the love. The sport Helping you out years later. What do you think about that? That's a good thoughts and and I think that There are a lot of lessons learned on the field or on the match or in the race track and the race car on about can horse. I take the probably the biggest lie that we all learn. Sports Humility No matter how bad you think you are. There's GonNa be a bucket horse. It's coming along and he's going to hurt you and he's going to throw you off and and and bury your head in the sand in front of a lot of people and some of those people are your friends and family or you might be sixteen hundred miles away from home so so so no matter how much success you have and whatever endeavor you pursue. I believe that's that's where the biggest lessons that we can learn. And in the sports arena or at a microphone especially. I am challenged today I have. I have challenges that are presented and I have to stop and think how would I have handled this? How do I handle this? And what would my peers and mentors? How would they handle this? And I and I and I think that you are correct in that speaking on a market sold about sports she participated in certainly gives you an advantage in a leg up and so talk to us a little bit about the announcing announcing that you do this weekend I was in Waterloo Iowa and a coors bull riding classic next weekend.

NBA trade deadline: Winners, losers and teams in between
"Flurry of trades in the NBA a blockbuster in baseball mortar common colds to memorialize Kobe Bryant and highly visible way joined by ESPN's Howard Bryant good morning hours good morning Scott how are you I'm fine thanks is awesome aggressive deals in the NBA trade at the trade deadline who do you rack up as the winners and losers well and I'm not sure about the winners and losers of the trade deadline but certainly the winners and losers right now of the first half of the season you've got a look at the Lakers in the west and and the Milwaukee Bucks I think they are head and shoulders above everybody else how could you hold on for a moment our you know head yes government for you almost got me for a second there's got yeah Milwaukee is terrific and and they're great they're holding on the crushed Philadelphia the other night I thought coming into the season it was gonna be Philadelphia Milwaukee Los Angeles and Los Angeles Lakers and the clippers but I'm not too sure about the other two yet but we've got a long way to go I think trade deadline wise I think Miami Heat got much much better they got on great good dollar they made a very good deal with Memphis I think that Philadelphia tried to shore up of making a deal with with the warriors and de Angelo Russell going to Minnesota who knows what that's gonna do maybe there's a late run there but the bottom line is coming forward right now I still think that you've got two teams in this league disappointed the Boston Celtics didn't do anything but I think it's the box and the Lakers right now an official memorial for Kobe Bryant's been set for February twenty fourth they've been calls to make his image a permanent part of the game you even rent a Poland that did I did I read a little Twitter poll this morning which was soundly rejected to replace Kobe Bryant is Jerry west to is the logo of the NBA with cut him a cell away from the silhouette of your request yes absolutely and it would have been fitting in some ways because Jerry west was the the man behind making sure Kobe Bryant ended up with the Lakers making that draft day trade with the Charlotte Hornets and I I understand add on one on one level the need or they want to want to memorialize Kobe I also understand that the NBA has been around since nineteen forty seven and maybe it's time to create a new logo Jerry west has been there fifty years since nineteen sixty nine however I do think that if you're going to think about and I'm a new logo or and a modern logo it's probably got to be Michael Jordan right or but I got an arm and a leg yeah but I also understand the desire right now for people to feel that something should be done for Kobe Bryant after after all that happened Boston Red Sox LA Dodgers Minnesota Twins switching sports agreed to a three team trade Tuesday that's been perhaps delay it has been delayed because of some medical records Mookie Betts has what they call a generational player MVP Golden Gloves traded to the Dodgers are the red Sox making the worst roster decision since they sold Babe Ruth's contract well if you red Sox fans are very happy about it especially because it's a generational player Mookie Betts is a beloved player two years ago he wins the M. B. P. and they won the World Series you're looking at a guy that fans just adore and it's a very cynical move in some ways but it also may very well be a huge business deal for them because number one we know that super star players now at this level after Manny Machado deal after the Bryce Harper deal your it in and now the the Gerrit Cole deal you're looking at three hundred and fifty four hundred million dollars to sign a player and if Mookie Betts didn't want to play with the red Sox will find out over the next several weeks and months if that was the case then of course they had to move them but on the other hand if that's not the case the red Sox are a super power they can sign whoever they want they've got money it's looking like a cynical deal we will see I'm good at and by the way I got as you know your cubs aren't far behind because you've got a guy like Chris Brian who's another cornerstone player and what does that mean for the cubs keep these players and the fans love him yeah thank you very much ESPN's Howard Bryant thanks so much no my pleasure

How 'Broadway Joe' redefined the NFL
"Com. Hey history lovers. I'm Mike Rosen world with retro pod a show about the past rediscovered fifty years ago a few days before his team took the field as huge underdogs in the super bowl. New York jets quarterback Joe Nemeth known and then and forever as Broadway. Joe arrived at a Miami Hotel in a Turquoise Cadillac Nemeth known to sometimes show Eh Games. Still drunk from the previous evening's activities. was there to accept an award. The quarterback sat on the dais next to his companion for the evening. Mr Johnnie Walker wrote Mark Kriegel in his two thousand five biography when it was his turn to speak Namus said I'd like to personally thank all the single girls in New York for their contribution. This was pure Broadway Joe tipsy free willing amorous and so was the cockiness that emerged from his whiskey. Soft lips later the jets will win in Sunday and said `I garin teeth. I the colts win by a large score. Today I'm GonNa say Baltimore Colts by a score of thirty five to ten. I think New York to win forty one thirty one. Nemo's prediction wasn't just hockey. It was really New York over forty one called the his opponent. The the Baltimore Colts were seventeen point favorites nameless knees were beat up. The colts have the second most potent offense in football in the best defense. Some were predicting a blowout. They said that it couldn't be done. But it has been near. The Third Super Bowl could gets one sixteen to seven was named most valuable player. Performance wasn't all that stellar. He didn't even throw a touchdown. But in critical wrote the moment itself took Namus fame and pro football's popularity to different planet in fame's pecking checking order. Nemeth suddenly outrank Sinatra. The biographer wrote. Actually at that moment he outranked just about everybody who wasn't a beetle doc attendance around the NFL Sword Soda TV or ship particularly with the launch of Monday night football the following season. The League made sure that Nemeth in the jets played in that inaugural game he's going NBA. Joe Name. After George Sauer for the touchdown everyone wanted a piece of Nemeth especially reporters profiles of Nemeth for the nineteen seventies equivalent of Click Bait legendary columnist. Jimmy Breslin wrote a famous story about Nemeth For New York magazine entitled Nemeth All night long in it. He compared the quarterback hanging out at a bar to Babe Ruth hanging out at a bar. I saw ruth once when he came off the golf course and walked into the bar at the Old Bailey side course in queens president wrote in one shot. He swallowed the mixing Xing Glass Ice Chunks. And everything else. He slapped the mixing glass down instead. Give me another one of these things kid. The place went went nuts. It is the same thing when you stand at the bar with Joe Namath. Life went on like this for awhile not surprisingly Nemeth endured his fair share of busted relationships drunk driving charges bad business. The steals fading playing ability in then of course fading fame drinking was the biggest problem. Nemeth was an alcoholic alcoholic. He settled down in Nineteen eighty-four marrying Deborah. mays woman he met at a voice class with her insistence. Nemeth was able to quit drinking a few years later but after they divorced in two thousand Nemeth began heavily drinking again leading to one of the ugliest and most embarrassing moments of his life during a jets game in two thousand three Nemeth wearing his old number and obviously heavily intoxicated intoxicated was interviewed on the sideline by ESPN reporter. Suzy Kolber he answered one of her questions in a truly shocking way. What does it mean to you at now? Team is struggling kiss. I couldn't care less about the teams throttling Nemeth apologized and entered Rehab. Namus is seventy five years old. It's easier for him to look back now on that improbable win and understand and just how much it changed his life and sports forever. I think about it now. He recently told the New York Daily News.

Did the Raiders contact Antonio Brown's agent before Brown apologized?
"Something i wanted to get to the bottom of was did the raiders in fact contact. Rosenhaus awesome tonio brown's agent. I've seen this kind of float around but i'm not sure that this is what happens i wanted to see if either of you know <hes> if he was contacted before we're antonio brown's apology on friday and told that the guaranteed money and his contract would be voided as it was at that point so at that point basically antonio only lebron's going in apologizing knowing that the thirty million is a hit is that something that we know was already told to him before the apology or i don't i think to <hes> the bottom line on that is that they didn't have to i mean he knows as well as anybody once they imposed that discipline. They have the right to go after it so i mean i think he's smart enough to know without having that conversation that that was what they were angling for. It was clear we talked about <hes> when we first saw these letters on wednesday basically all those letters. There's are is is a legal paper trail down the road to say here's what happened. We had we had these issues. We had to find him. This is what went on that's all. Those letters are for <hes> so i think rosenhaus kind of knew he probably explai- tube and there i'm positive on some level even though no it's illegal according to the rules of the n._f._l. Under the c._b._a. I'm positive that rosenhaus was talking to other teams and saying if this happens if the contract is voided if for run out what is the market and i'm sure he knew what it was and so like. Did he know those things. I don't. I'm sure he did was explicitly laid out by the raiders. I'm i'm not sure about how that worked but <hes> i'm sure he knew exactly what the situation was yeah so in other words. He knew the patriots were looking at him and that he could play there. Air instead of explicitly said i'm sure he knew what the market was. When you think of maybe this is like a wild theory and so. I got on tin foil hat. You're so picture that all of us but if <hes> excuse me antonio brown got to the raiders he was happy happy for a little while then started practicing with these guys right maybe gets the training camp and he's like what they're not going to be very good and then he's just decides besides you know what bleep this. I'm just going to act ugly. I'm gonna throw crap all over the walls until i'm just going to keep doing it. Even though you tell me to stop even though you tell me you know i'm gonna find you find me on posting on instagram like i'm going to now make it even bigger mess and then he knows that he enforce himself out because he knows that there's maybe a winner. That will be there for him. I think that it's not out of their own with possibility as i now take my tinfoil hat off and put my reporter reporter hat right back on that. This is something that could have happened because when it's five hours after somebody releases you that you are with defending super bowl champions. There's maybe somebody should look into that right. I mean i think i went once the further with my tin foil will happen i tweeted and it was more of a joke but <hes> as as everything in my life does it relates to seinfeld but there was there was an episode of seinfeld where the mets wanted to hire george costanza away from the yankees and they couldn't just hire him because it would be tampering and they wouldn't be able to go hire them away from team so they told him to do everything he could to get fired from the yankees. He started dragging the world series trophy around he was wearing babe ruth pants from the yankee museum. <hes> everything do get fired so that the mets would be able to hire him like in my mind. Bella check like a go create chaos out there. We need to bring you in. That's the only way we can get you and that's again a complete and total conspiracy. Uh but i like to think that it's true. Let's talk about some of the possible reaction and we can expect here from the raiders because i wanna in a hypothesize what derek carr might say about antonio brown's tweet of bumper cars meaning. He and his brother david had been doing some conversation about antonio brown. That's what i interpreted that tweet demean. I can't imagine it would mean anything else so cars generally very nice well-spoken guy in front of the media very even temperament. Do we expect any crazy reaction from him. Certainly not i mean he's a quarterback right and quarterbacks are always is going to be measured in what they say. Now i do sort of wish that we have been hearing directly from derek carr instead of through really an intermediary as his brother on n._f._l. Network right. I think especially because derek carr was in the locker room today and we were told as he came back in that he was not going to be talking and and that's fine. He certainly has that right and he's a quarterback. He speaks one time a week but i just think it would have been nice to hear directly from derek carr car <hes> since you know he had been nothing but supportive i totally respect dirk are not talking but i think that you know it just it just would have been nice to hear from the quarterback in that particular situation and he doesn't have to but he could've essentially descending out press releases. I mean through his approach. That's what he's doing in. They're not it's not it's not like they're being secretive about it. I think that's that's the one thing i'll say about this is like if it was just some secret that if it was some random person in the media and derek carr was feeding things to get it out there and not talking to the media locally but hey i'm gonna feed this to whoever you you know whatever national reporter and it's coming out saying oh source close to the team said like that would be a little bit different to me than in this case. It's basically his brother going on tv serving mrs mouthpiece and saying explicitly. I talked to derrick this morning. Here is what he said. I think they're being pretty open about it. It just it clearly rubbed antonio radio brown the wrong way and you know we saw the other day he unfolded the raiders and derek carr on instagram and then reformed the raiders but not car like that was pretty telling of where they are have a check dam sure he unveiled the raiders as well now he did. Yes yeah <hes> but you know. I think that was incredibly telling that when he did follow the raiders he did not re follow derek carr. You know i it was pretty clear that that relationship was was heading in the wrong way. Even though derek carr continued to say how close they were and how they've played well after field and here's the other thing it listen it's part of the job we understand but how many times jon gruden was asked how many times micmac was asked just how many times derek carr was asked about the distractions in about everything that's going on and how many times they basically said. You're inventing this you guys the media are inventing the story story. No no weren't by the way to the same thing to the readers out there to the fans out there like these things are not invented. There's a reason isn't that story. Lines are storylines. This was something that was going on and it was bubbling over all the time and it was distracting the team. It was bothering the team. It certainly had been an issue for a while and now it just has has reached that point where they couldn't deal with it anymore but i think it would absolutely not be surprising if it was something that tonio earlier brown was like i need to do this i need to get out and this is my way out and the other thing is it wasn't blown out of proportion either. That's the that's the phrase that like gets on my nerves a little bit. <hes> men like all these things you're saying. They were blown out of proportion. It's blown out of proportion. He's just a wide receivers blown out of proportion. Friggin von miller said that on on a conference call the other day no. It's not blown out of proportion when you're yelling at g._m. In practice right you're posting your fines on instagram. When you ask on instagram to be released win. You recorded your ahead coach with a stencil your head coach with the conversation. Put it on a two minute youtube video in a two party consent state. I don't really think any of these things are being blown out of proportion so i love what jonathan abram had to say on twitter and he put this out just about a little over an hour ago he says in today's world the worst drug there is called attention

Jane? Lady Jane, great to have you on the show. Jane, this is an extraordinary work of scholarship. It took eight years encompass more than two hundred fifty interviews for a subject that so much has been written about throughout history. Making this a quite a challenge. And this guy was on your radar fruit for years for decades. Yeah. I started out believe it or not is early in the eighties and nineties wanting to write a novel about him because I figured that was the only way you could inhabit the caricature that he had become, you know, bandied leg big chested guy that everybody thought he was always, of course, as you know, he was why came to the Red Sox. He was a kind of dude it nineteen fourteen. But what happened is that the ability to research and dig back into history and to basically rewrite history changed with the digital revolution. And so I was able to find in documents on its state archives at a newspaper records the story about his childhood that had never been told. And a lot of you set aside, you sideline a lot of mythology about him, for example that he was an orphan. Yeah. There were two conflicting and completely irreconcilable. This was that he was an orphan the other was that he was an incorrigible meaning a boy who had to be sent away by the courts to be reformed at a school called St Mary's industrial school on the western edge of Baltimore City. And neither of those was true. But those mis prospered in the absence of him having anything to say on on the matter. He would get angry when people called him and offered and say, no, no, no, I had parents. But he never went further than that. And the truth is that his parents were divorced which was something you didn't brag about or you didn't have Barbara Walters or dice player minutes. Offer. You a guests. Shot to go explain and and elicit sympathy for what was basically a Dickensian childhood. So his parents were divorced. His father accused his mother of being both an adulterer at an alcoholic. He kicked her out at nineteen o six custody of the kids, and basically that sealed little Georgia's fate because his father had no interest or time for him and sent him loss to live at the at Saint Mary's industrial school, which is run by a lay order of Catholic brothers called as a very brothers. You got to sources about the baby that no one had before. Well, again, I it was because you're able to find things now in documents that my very able predecessors couldn't have found for example, the the divorce of George route senior and Kate schamberger Reuss was it was made news and the Baltimore in Baltimore papers is in the Baltimore Sun in may nineteen o six, but you'd have had to read, you know, microfiche for hours weeks months in order to find that item since there was no there was no wave click a mouse and say, you know, give me everything Georgia Georgia's senior where now it just pops up in front of your. Three and astonishing gift that you received from the cyber God's back late. Babe Ruth became Babe Ruth incorporated in here. In your book. We meet a failed newspaper cartoonist in adman named Christy Walsh, who created the template for the modern celebrity athlete. How did they meet in one thousand nine hundred twenty one Kristie wells? Well, Christy Walsh was a master is really the original Jerry Maguire, and he was a master of spin. And damage control words that didn't exist in in nineteen twenty one. But apparently, and this is according to his nephew, Richard. He was so desperate. Having just lost his job in in a car ad agency that he found out where babe was staying and climbed up the fire escape. Cold opened the window of his room found him in bed with a blonde climbs through the open window slapped him on a button and said, I want to represent you. Wow. Who is the kind of moxy that Babe Ruth. I think would've appreciated also the fact that he was offering him for his ghost-written stories columns that would appear in papers around the country and most predominantly in New York, you know, ten times what he had received before. But by nineteen twenty seven year, he hits the sixty home runs because it Kristie Walsh. He's making more money off the field. And he is on it. Yeah. He was the model for modern celebrity. I mean, Walsh really was visionary. And in Ruth he had a guy who was in every sense of the word game. If you said, they please go, you know, hold a lobster on national lobster day. He'd do it. If he sees hold a dead. Turtle. He'd do it you pose with anyone and anything that would, you know, broaden his appeal and his image and Walsh was smart enough to. Physician him as the first really major spokesperson. You know that he he did more in nineteen in the nineteen twenties. And Peyton Manning is doing that. It's hard to believe because Payton's on every commercial. We're with Jane Levy who has written another blockbuster. The big fella Babe Ruth in the world. He created from HarperCollins books, and and as part of the celebrity janey takes on Commissioner Landis, who takes exception to the fact that he's endorsing everything and bay feels that he has a right to make a living after the season. Yeah. He one of the things that surprised me. The most about him was how really well-spoken and forthright. He was about players writes back at a time when they had none. So one of the ways that these guys made money in the off season was to do barnstorming tours and everybody did them. But of course, Babe Ruth did them bigger and better than anyone else. And there is a crazy rule on the books that said that if you had played in the World Series, you couldn't barnstorm because. The people who ran baseball back then were dimwitted about marketing and did not understand that it was to their advantage for Babe Ruth to go out into the countryside the game and promote the game to people who remember there's no radio. They can't hear it. They can't see it. Right. And Babe Ruth said, you know. Well, gee, I think I have a right to make a living doing what I do best. And by the way, I think what we're doing is great for baseball Landis who was busy trying to consolidate his power as the first Commissioner in the fall of twenty one and who has his own problems because there are investigations have him in congress because he won't give up his job on the on the federal bench in Chicago. You know, makes a big case out of this and says if you go, you know, you're you're you're gonna be fine. You're going to be suspended Ruth tests him and does anyway. And of course, he was. Finding suspended. He lost his World Series money. And he was suspended for a quarter of the twenty two season. How out of balance Jane is the popular perception of the bay with the reality. You know, I think that it's. It's so. Like, so many other mess. It's a matter of degree as you point out. So yeah, he overate. Yeah. He drank too, much beer. Yes. He availed himself of all the pleasures of flesh. But remember when he got out of Saint Mary's, this guy who is supposed to be this wild, man. The kid who was supposed to run amok on the waterfront of Baltimore. His first instinct was to get married so nineteen fourteen when he gets out of St Mary's at age nineteen it signs with the Baltimore Orioles. Minor league team is sold to the Red Sox. He meets a waitress Helen Helen Woodford who become selling Reuss, and he gets married. His first instinct was not to go nuts. But to try to give himself the family. He never had a sure it the marriage didn't work out he discovered that. She was. Sixteen. He was nineteen. He didn't know how to be a husband. He didn't know how to be a father. That's hardly surprising. But again, his first instincts for to try to create what he'd never had as. Early in the book you have in in our remaining moments. Jane Levy early in the book, you have almost a full page of nicknames. Do you do you think fans have any understanding of how overwhelming his celebrity was in his time? No. And that's really probably what I was trying to do. And I found thirty thirty eight more of them by the way since since I wrote the book. No, there was no way to capture the bigness of him. And so sports writers of the day. And remember sportswriting was just coming into the fullness of tabloid journalism and they're competing for take to get the best of him in the most from him. And they can't find a word with all those things put together they're still not enough big enough to encompass how big he was. He was a revolutionary, Ed. Reinvented baseball. He took it don't hands for away from the micro managers like John McGraw waited who hated Jack done for selling for selling him to the Red Sox and not giants, by the way. He took the game out of their hands, and remade it with his two very very large positive fifty four ounce back, and he he reinvented how how players were thought of that. He created the notion of players entertainers who should be remunerated not just for the balls. He hit outta ballparks. But for the people he brought into them, and he barnstorming against negro leaguers, which was it. He's not the only one to do it. But he was Babe Ruth. And so his sanction of their play and his his willingness to articulate that what she did in the newspapers I spoke volumes. And I know the answer is no, here's no way. You you. You a modern reader can understand how really big he was let me ask you in the in the remaining moments that we have writers back in his day were in close proximity. The babe. And that's all there was as you said. There was no radio. There was no television. It was newspapers, and they brandished his fame and yet there was so much. They did not right about that. They I witnessed the irony is they were as close to him and had such access to him. Again, a word use today, but not in use then, but they didn't write most of what they knew about him personally because everything that was you know, off the field was considered absolutely for boat. And there was a kind of clubhouse omerta, and they just didn't write anything personal. And so while they knew him very, well, they didn't convey that in print which is the opposite of today where the mandate for reporters to write every thought and personal item. And everybody has a phone. For you. Go in our remaining, thirty seconds. What's next for? Jane Levy, you're gonna write the we've had Mickey Mantle. We've had said he Colfax we've had Babe Ruth. I know that's a trilogy. Anything else coming? You got an idea for me it. We'll talk about it off the air. Right now. I mean, Arizona doing book book festivals and collecting this seem more mental which I'm thrilled. Receiving congressional. I'm I'm thinking about a couple of things. But if I say it out loud, you know, what happens now..

"And then all of a sudden, you realize wilt did it sixty five consecutive games. Why is we don't recognize will Chamberlain the way we recognize Babe Ruth that that they're you know, there's like they're not real a mythical figure, but we recognize the greatness of Babe Ruth. We forget about will Chamberlain. I think whether it's fair or not one thing we say about wilt is that he he was almost like a character out of Gulliver's travels. Right. Like, he's this super sized athletes, whereas everybody else around him outside of Bill. Russell was a smaller player playing almost a different sport. I think we are are are looking at will as this. This is being overpowering. Whereas we look at Babe Ruth is being maybe more skilled. It's I don't know if I agree with it. I mean, I love I agree with that much either. I think we'll accomplishments personally should be. I I'm with you. I think we'll sit college mentor. But I you know, when when this conversation comes up, it's like a will was this seven foot one monster. And how many other guys we're able to defend him on your physical level that seems to be the argument? Yeah. But same with shack. Nobody could come close to his size, but they were more. I mean, there were more guys check it. You ain't gonna lie guys that were not check size, but comparable. Then you go back to the days of wealth. I mean, how many guys were even close to physically overpower? We're talking about Russell being as peer Russell like six nine like, you know, with a great defensive instincts skills, but he was nowhere near as physically biggest we'll either, but you had guys who were big Nate Thurman was very good defensive player while Bellamy had guys who were similar size or at least close. I would. But I don't know. I just feel like we we look at Wilton go. Oh, I don't even know how categorize him. What he did? You know, in the fact that we don't have video when he scored one hundred points in a calf. Did it really happen? You know, it's one of those where did he did we really land on the moon type thing, and we have video of that? I mean, mo- most people only don't we'll hundred point gain from that. You know, that that piece of paper held hold on me on the internet where everybody just kind of changes it with Ben Simmons goes for one. They raise the two zero one offensive faith on it. I mean, honestly like most people know that we'll did it what they don't have any context of. How did it? Are you buying into the rockets now this late run beating Golden State again without harden when we get to the playoffs L I'm buying in not to say that they're they're they're going to win. But I think they're back on that level that they were lashed the defensive numbers. Trouble me, they're not a very good defensive team right now. Whereas last year they were in the top half. Leaked defensively. But you know, forget hard forget, Paul. The reason this team is back on a championship radar are those bargain-basement additions. They've made dad I mean, Kenneth Reid is giving them like sixteen in pen was stapled to that. Nets mentioned has been a shell himself. The last years. Austin rivers was let go basically by two teams this year. And now he's giving them thirty three minutes per game. This team had a bad off a lost a Reza Elorza by moot? Say they lost some of their defensive identity, you know, in the process in getting for reading rivers, some of the other guys that they've been able to grow. They're starting to get some of that swagger back. So I think you can count on Chris Paul and James harden being great if they're healthy. But you're now able to count on the role players being a lot better than they were at the start of the season to visit with you. Chris safe travels. Thanks for joining us. You don't even want to talk about the Celtics. I'm disappointed in that debt. I assumed it'd be some Celtic related conversation. If you're a betting man is Kyrie Irving with the Celtics next year. Yes. Five years hundred.

But I don't think because he's become this myth in this folklore. Those comments should be dismissed as like controversial are crazy for you know, adamant Vito said that in a podcast in a relaxed format for a reason because he believes that like since then he's probably had to walk it back again. He did have to walk. He said he didn't mean it as disrespectful. He probably didn't mean it as disrespectful. He just that's his reaction. He thinks he would strike Babe Ruth out every time. And I think he's right. Hey, what's the argument that a modern day baseball player? Wooden strike Babe Ruth at every time. Nineteen. Baseball career. I believe ended in one thousand nine hundred thirty five forty five fifty five sixty five seventy five eighty five ninety five thousand five hundred fifty that is eighty four years ago. The simple human. Evolution would tell you at that point, not only athletic evolution human evolution data, abolition supplement evolution nutritional training. Evolution changes in the game. Everybody playing nowadays. Fulltime baseball players are making millions of dollars versus whatever was going on. So I don't think that's crazy. I don't know where he has to walk that back. I bet you would strike Babe Ruth out every time. I didn't say I would strike Babe Ruth out every time I said, I would maybe run around basis fashion them. I'm not saying I would strike I'm not going that far that would be disrespectful, but an actual major league pitcher who strike it out. Major league baseball guys very often nowadays. Hardly.

"Podcast that he'd make a fool of Babe Ruth. If the Ben beano played today, he recalled telling the coach, quote, I strike Babe Ruth out every time rest in peace shout out to Beirut. But I mean, the guy hotdogs drank beer, it was just a different game pulls, quote, Tony if you don't tell this full where to stick it. I will first of all I love the fact that he said out the Babe Ruth. That's great. If the Babe Ruth that played in the twenties and thirties came up today looking like that carrying a forty two ounce back this guy who's never faced one hundred an hour heater. This guy would strike him at every time. But the craziness is to think that that guy wouldn't be in the major leagues now because nutrition is different and offseason is different workout two different. If Babe Ruth showed up now is Babe Ruth what he would be is Aaron judge times one or two hit fifty sixty and probably seventy and he'd take out of the no, the if this guy thinks that it'd Babe Ruth Roussy, think of Willie Mays and Hank Aaron and let me just go to something you be stupid shifts. They employees the employed them because the the numbers are so stupid. And they're so ignorant of what can be done on a baseball field by great players. Do you? What do you think would happen? If Pete Rose waited until people shifted on he left, he hit eight hundred because every time they shifted. Not only would he would hit a baseball into who left handed power hitters of two. To do that. That's my point. I should baseball is a sport. Which in many ways has gotten worse. Do you think sandy Colfax couldn't play in today's game? Do you think this this dope? Think Bob Gibson couldn't play as I think the important thing is this asinine. You can compare numbers, but you cannot compare people because the world changes and involve if we'll Chamberlain as we knew him came around to day he'd be the greatest thing that everyone has ever seen. So join with you in saying shut up yesterday, we mentioned that Steph. Curry did not believe that men had ever landed on the moon. I said I thought this had to be a lighthearted Omar's to kyri Irving saying the earth was flat. But it appears curry actually believes this. He said so on the winging it podcast hosted by fellow NBA years, Vince Carter and as more we'll bonus questioning the moon landing bad look for Steph. Curry is a bad. Look everybody is not just a Korean. I'm gonna say this. Let me start by saying if this is a joke. They're just trolling people. Because I believe Peres doing that. I feel certain that he's doing and I think Steph do whenever let me just say the three people who have taken up this call from the last forty eight hours, Marc spears of this network in this company, Steph curry, and Jalen rose, these people are my friends, I know them. Well, well, I'm with them their discussions all the time. I know their intellects don't do. This don't come out and say, we saw these pictures are kinda granted they're black and white happened before I was born. Because does that mean, you don't believe in slavery? Does that mean, you don't believe in the revolutionary war? They're not it because it didn't happen on your watch. Don't do this. You guys are too smart. Don't do is supposed to be are you saying J J J today? These guys if you are as real is you say if you are as technologically savvy as you appear don't do this very thing. I don't believe in history because the hell with history because it didn't happen while I was looking at my cell phone watch, a very small step to becoming a holocaust denier, don't do it. And so I'm gonna Cameron say. This and I'm going to say this both to Steph curry and Kyrie Irving go. I don't think he's joking. I'm gonna say this is anti intellectual, and it's anti science it should embarrass you should embarrass your family's. It should embarrass the fine schools.

Obvious going to jump in. I'm going to preview the Babe Ruth story with the question would Babe Ruth dominate in today's game. Yes, or no. I know it's a silly question. But we were arguing over it. So I think it's worth putting out then. Okay. All All right. right. Well, that's the setup here. So let's play it. This is the free agent reliever. Atom off vino who was. Brought it up with his coach and AAA about bay Bruce affective nece in today's game. Koshin AAA about Baber its effectiveness in today's game. And this was like ten years ago. I said look Babe Ruth swing. Swing swinging that band. I got an a buck for. Favors three seventy with sixty homers. I'm straight Baber time. Like, I'm not trying to disrespect them. You know recipes, you know, shout out to be Ruth. But it was a different game. I mean guy hotdogs to try and beer, and whatever he did. And it was just a different game. Okay. No disrespect, of course, and gives Babe Ruth a shout. That's so nice. Do we have any response in Babe Ruth checking? Okay. Babe. Hit three forty two and a twenty two year career and hit seven hundred fourteen home runs. Oh, by the way. One almost one hundred games as a pitcher. He was playing against pretty good players back. Then now, you can argue about there was no integration back then. Okay. But he was still playing against the best players in baseball and his numbers. He hit more home runs than teams did in some years what he dominate today. No, he would not. But let me take Adam auto vino back to the nineteen twenties. No supplements, no weight lifting travel by train no nutrition. And I want you to play the way they played under those conditions. How would Adam out of vino do back in nineteen twenty? And then I allow Babe Ruth to travel by charter nutrition weight throw in some PD's. If you want to everybody else has been doing them. So I get to do that for babe. Babe ruth. Now would Babe Ruth dominate the way. He did back then in the twenties. It's possible. But unlikely he was by foreign away the best player. Imagine a clean Barry Bonds who could also pitch. He won twenty games. A couple of times. I believe. He probably could have been a three hundred game winner. So let me just factor that in everybody looks at Babe Ruth and goes that fat guy. Okay. He wouldn't be fat. Now, he would he would be in shape now and people if you look see what baseball reference has Babe Ruth height and weight polling because it will shock people. How much Babe Ruth if I said over under two twenty for Babe Ruth under everybody is going to take over and he's probably under two hundred. They haven't listed six couple places. Six to two fifteen six one to ten different places. Another thing wouldn't Babe Ruth Babe Ruth be facing faster pitches now which would add to his power because the faster the pitch. The more chance there is for a home run that you're going to be a physics major know that. And so being he would he would have a chance to be more powerful now. Well, the defenses are better their specialization. I understand because you'd have pitchers who would pitch, you know, fourteen innings if they needed to the shifts that are on for Babe Ruth. But he would still be playing in Yankee Stadium, and that Tomer friendly, but Babe Ruth would be a different athlete now. And so would Adam oughta vino he might be a guy who was drinking beer eating a hotdog smoke in heaters. Yes. He but one I think that we should not forget that. I believe baseball players probably do still drink beer and eat hotdogs. Yeah. I get that they're in better shape..
