A i went to the stadium specifically to meet kelsey grammer. The actor who played frasier crane on both cheers and frazier. No one had any idea what was going on. No one had any idea about autographs pictures. Or how much time you had with mr grammar. I drove two and a half hours in the heat just to meet him. I was also on crutches as i had been in a head on collision two weeks prior and had three cracked ribs and multiple lacerations on my left ankle which was heavily bandaged. Gary didn't mention was kelsey was in the car so he was actually going to front kelsey. Grammer i know you're going to say he got wrestled to the ground for his t shirt or another based expecting not to happen. St wrestled to the ground. That's why i'm on crutches. Stuck toasties put plenty of people. I know the high c. You okay. The line was already thirty people deep. By the time they opened the gates to the public. I waited and finally hobbled my way to the front. I politely ask mr grammar for an autograph on a baseball and the stadium staff in an extremely rude nasty boy said no. Let's go off the line. This guy was so close to physically putting his hands on me to get me out of the way. I told him that. I was on crutches and only had use of one leg.

Oakland City Council Considering A’s “Howard Terminal or Bust” Offer
"Vote whether to approve the A's proposal to build a new baseball stadium at Howard Terminal. They say Their waterfront proposal, which includes housing, a performance space and hotels will revitalize West Oakland, an area of the city that has historically suffered from gentrification and displacement by big infrastructure projects like bark. Freeways in the post office down there. Opponents say it will cost jobs at the port and argued that the stadium should be built to the Coliseum, where ample transportation infrastructure already exists. Ratcheting up the tension as the A's ultimatum that if they can't build on the waterfront, they will move away entirely, leaving Oakland without a major league sports team following the loss of the city's other teams. We'll hear about the plan at what it means for Oakland and Bay Area sports fans. First I want to bring Nina Thorsen, producer at KQED and the California report onto the show to give us a reset. Welcome to the show. Nina Hey, Alexis. Good to talk to you. So first, let's let's talk about the specific area where it is. I want to give listeners like a sort of mental map. Where exactly is Howard Terminal? So if you've ever taken a fairy and gotten off at the open side, it's immediately north of where the ferry terminal is right now and then in between Howard Terminal and, um, the rest of the port of Oakland. That's where Schnitzer Steel the steel factory is. So it's right on the water, and, um, right adjacent to the ferry terminal. And I think that's one of the things that makes this such a complicated location is on the one side. You've got the port and on the other side you've got Jack London is right right in between there. Sure, And I mean, I think this is the challenge inherent to anybody who's going to build. Any kind of new facility in an established city is you want to be close to things that are already there and places where people want to go, But that means you're going to be next to some people, and there's just a lot of complications involved for sure. Give us a quick recap

It was like Oakland Alameda Stadium because it was a baseball stadium where When you ran through the end zone. This is the wall was only about 3 ft high and you ran. You don't have to jump anywhere. You just ran right into the fan. And it was unbelievably loud. It was such the Terp was always they used to painted green just to think it was grass, but it was our tracking with the third track. And we were a bunch of mutters, but that particular game stands out my Michael's people, said Joe, What's the What's the one game that you remember the most? And I'm sure people expect the Super Bowl? It certainly was a great moment. Beating the Cowboys in Rome for the right to go to the Super Bowl was the most memorable game in my life.

It's allowed is hell and you guys end up beating them to go to the Super Bowl show Thighs been joins us this morning on the show you get to the Super Bowl, and there's the iconic run of John Riggins on fourth and short, breaking through the Dolphins defense. There goes the diesel and route to a touchdown to seal that championship. What are you seeing as you hand the football off and watch the back of Riggins Jersey.

"In Brentwood, and he spots something unusual. Ah, homeless encampment. That's not the unusual part Sadly. What is unusual, though, is the way this this encampment encampment looks. looks.

Big Big tents tents and and pinned pinned to to the the outside outside of each one of those is an American flag. This is right outside the West L. A VA campus, The Veterans Administration campus if you're not familiar with it that is a huge gated property just west of the 405 federally owned healthcare compound for military vets. Run by the US Department of Veterans Affairs. Many of La's homeless veterans receive services there. To some folks actually stay on the sidewalk near by This eye catching encampment only popped up in the last few months. It's a road, 30 tents and all the tents were supposed to be a line. There also have flags on the left hand side. Dean leave is an army veteran. I served 86 through 89 under Ronald Reagan Problem. Five tonight Field artillery in Fort Carson, Colorado. Says PTSD from a sexual assault by another soldier led him to substance abuse and eventually homelessness. It's chaotic is living on the streets is, Dean says, This encampment has some military style order. We have a standard operating procedures. We have fire guard. We have security watches. A lot of veterans have a lot of different stories. Each one has their own individual. Sorry. One thing that many share is the feeling that being a veteran and being homeless is Well, you know, the saying adding insult to injury. Yeah, really gets you down your spirituality after serving the country and I'm not complaining, but by all means I haven't had a gratitude this long and water in the complaint list. The end of the day. You know, I didn't serve this country It hurts, And for some of the veterans here that hurt his coalesced around to cause what they see is decades of negligence when it comes to housing homeless vets. On the west L A. V, a campus. And in that respect, this encampment is meant to draw attention. We're standing our ground as a peaceful protest. Against what? Exactly, And why now? That story, it turns out is only the latest development in a much bigger saga, one that involves a prime piece of real estate, a corruption scandal a pandemic in the plan to pick up the pieces. KCR W's Anna Scott takes it from here. The story really begins. 133 years ago in 18 87. Hey, we told you it was a saga that year, a wealthy family donated the land That's now the campus with the stipulation that it had to serve as a home for military veterans. And for a long time it did at one point after the Korean War between four and 5000 veterans lived there. But by the 19 seventies, Thie started leasing out the property for all kinds of things. They maintained a hospital and other veterans services but brought in a dog Park Baseball stadium, even a parrot sanctuary at one point Meanwhile, many veterans lived on the streets. You know, in the military, you never leave a fallen comrade behind on the battlefield. Why would we leave them behind here on American soil? Bob Rose Brock is an Army veteran who lives in Brentwood. And every week for the past 12 years he's protested outside the gates of the West via dei. I met him there earlier this month. Today is our 648 consecutive Sunday and that's what we're trying to do is to get housing for our veterans. On the other side of that fence, where they belong. It was legally deeded. And we've got veteran sleeping on the sidewalk here. Now. Bob is not the only person to take on this issue. A decade ago, some homeless veteran sued VA. Officials over how the West campus was being used. Some of those non veteran related leases were deemed illegal and cancelled. The parrot Sanctuary has gone, for example. Leader. It turned out there was a bribery scheme going on at the campus, Another VA official and a guy who ran private parking lots there were sentenced to prison. In short, It was a big, ugly mess. But from the fallout came a new vision for the property. Four years ago, the unveiled a proposal to bring the campus back to its original mission and transform it into a community with more than 1600 new apartments for homeless veterans. So happy ending right?

Why the pandemic is getting worse, and how to think about the future
"Okay Richard, so there are about forty seven different things we could talk about to unpack the story of how we got here in where we're going, but we chose a few of the big ones to focus on in this episode, so testing was a mess at the beginning. It seemed to get better for a little bit, and now it seems like it's a mess again, so what happened? Well it is complicated. Let's take you back to the beginning of the epidemic when the decided to develop its own test for the corona virus, which is standard practice for them, but honestly they bungled it, and instead of reaching for tests developed in Germany and distributed widely by the World Health Organization the CDC fix this quickly, and they kept trying, but really that turned out to be a big mistake, and it cost us a lot of time. I think the CDC didn't really realize the scope of this epidemic early on federal health officials should have done what South Korea did for instance what they did overseas immediately spur commercial companies to produce large quantities of tests. The US eventually got to that point, but you know it was really late, and now, of course we are in better shape. The US is averaging something like six hundred thousand tests a day or sometimes even more than that, but. It's still far short of the amount of tests that experts say we should be doing. Yeah, and let me ask you about that. Because I've seen estimates that we need to be doing like double or triple, the amount of tests to really control the virus right and you know the number of tests you need to do is really relative to the number of infected people, so we have so many infected people, and that number is growing. We really need to be doing a lot more testing. For example scientists at the World Health Organization uses a rule of thumb that you should have enough tests that your when you get the results back only about five percent or coming back positive. That, means that most of the people are negative, which is what you'd hope what you'd expect right now. Unfortunately, we have states like Texas and Florida in Arizona where the number of percent positive is like seventeen, eighteen or even twenty five percent, and you know the percent positive rates keep going up, which means it's definitely not true as the president has frequently claimed at the cases are only writing, because we're testing more. No seeing more positive cases as we see more tests so okay. Let's talk about the case numbers of it back in April we were at about you know thirty thousand cases per day and now we're. Sixty thousand new cases a day, which is objectively worse and to put that in perspective, sixty thousand people wouldn't even fit in dodger stadium, which is the biggest baseball stadium in this country, so we're talking about you know. Give you a visual image of what we're talking about it right right and you know. Some of that is driven by big outbreaks in places like California, Texas and Florida. Let's talk a little. Little bit more about why cases are up in those places. Yeah, it's complicated series of reasons, but some of it is that we're what we were talking about a little bit earlier. Some of these were in states like Texas and Arizona that were determined to open really early, and we're a lot of people including politicians thought you know starting. Their economies was more important than being really cautious about the virus. Could also be other stuff at play here because you know it is summer, and those are places that very hot, so more people are spending more time in air conditioning that is to say indoors and one thing we know about this virus is spread more likely indoors among people who are stuck together for at least fifteen minutes or longer in an indoor space. Yeah, honestly like this idea of being indoors is something I've been thinking about. Because I'm looking ahead right and we're looking at the fall in the winter when you're going to have the exact same thing happening all over the country like more people forced indoors. That correlates with of course, the beginning of seasonal flu, circulating some people in the hospital. That kind of stuff right it's going to. We're going GONNA have both epidemics happening at once. It's going to be a real mess. Okay, let's talk a little bit about mortality or people dying from the disease, so the president and others have pointed out in the last few weeks that the numbers of people dying per day are down from early on in the pandemic, and that is true back in mid April. There were days where we had well over two thousand people dying each day, and in the last week or so the US is seeing more like hundred people dying every day on average, although that number seems to be rising again. Let's talk about a few reasons why that could be why we're seeing fewer deaths now than earlier right well, certainly, one of the biggest reasons is not the biggest reason that the death rates are so low now compared to the spring when New York City got clobbered as you recall is nowadays the viruses infecting mainly younger people, and they just frankly less likely to die in Arizona for instance of these days, half the cases are in people aged twenty to forty four years old and only. Only eleven percent of cases and people over sixty five, and of course people over sixty five, or really at the highest risk of death, and you know that that shift younger age groups is both good and bad. The good part diseases hitting a population that can more easily survive, though we should say some people do die should bad part is that the spread is accelerating and putting vulnerable people at higher risk, because now the virus is traveling far and wide and putting more older people and. And people with underlying health conditions in harm's way right and you know one thing to note though is that especially in the younger demographic? This is where we see a lot of the huge racial disparities up, basically which young people are surviving and dying a paper out of Harvard June showed that in this twenty five to thirty four age group, the mortality rate for black people was seven times more than for white people really matters. Who are the those young people are right? It absolutely does. Does the overall risk of death is very very low in this age group, but it does absolutely hit some people harder than others, particularly because more people of color are at risk for contracting the disease because of their jobs, they have to be out and about and also underlying health conditions may also be playing a role here. Yeah, so it appears more young people are getting sick. Fewer of them ultimately die, but to be clear. Young people do get very sick and die from the virus. So that's one reason we're seeing fewer deaths right now. Compared to the beginning of the pandemic as far as why the numbers of deaths don't seem to be matching up with the increase, in cases, yet is partially due to the fact that deaths are what we call a lagging indicator Derek Thompson at the Atlantic wrote a really nice piece on. This will make sure to put in. The episode notes for Richard Let's talk about that a little bit right. Yeah, it's a very plainly put. There's a gap in time between the day someone test positive until the day the either recover or unfortunately die, and then of course. Course there's another lag in which that death is reported health officials. So what you're seeing now. It really in-depth really reflects people who got sick. You know two or three weeks ago or even longer than that, so that's one reason why deaths have not followed in lockstep with a big spike in cases. Yeah, and then there's also this thing called lead time bias right right, and that's basically a phenomenon where data can make it seem like something new is happening, but actually just about how you're collecting. The data with the increases in testing. We've seen in these past few months. We may simply be detecting more this. This virus earlier in people than we did before, people may have been really sick and not get tested to the hospital now people are driving up in their cars right and doing okay, and so there earlier on in the course of disease, but that doesn't really change the percentage of cases that wind up being fatal. It will just take longer than it did early on in the epidemic for those fatalities to show up and of course Richard there a ton of complications that we didn't have time to get into more hospital capacity ventilators, so what sheep the hospitals in actually plays a role in who survives and who? Who doesn't and then you know even though there isn't a cure, of course, doctors have had more time to learn how to treat this disease, so we don't have a lot of data on this yet. In the United States, but it seems like perhaps more people are surviving this disease than right in the beginning right, I think that is clearly the case and you know as long as hospitals aren't totally overwhelmed with patients. They can make use of what they've learned so far to improve treatments. I'll give you just one example steroids which are used to reduce inflammation. Turn out to be quite useful in many instances. So Richard I'm curious like overall how you're feeling looking at where we are compared to. Let's say April, there are ways in which I feel like are a lot more prepared like we understand the virus. A little better were obviously farther along on a vaccine and some potential treatments, but we still don't have adequate testing. Cases are at an all time high. We're heading into the fall, which means we're GONNA, have this consolidation of cold and flu and corona season, plus the schools potentially opening up your really cheering me up here. But maybe the most concerning fig just to keep you just to keep you down. Richard is that I? Just don't feel like we are a country with like one central goal to fight this thing together. Yeah well I think. I would agree with that first off a corona virus vaccine is not going to help much at least not in this coming flu season. Even if one is amazingly enough approved by the end of the year, we'll take really a long time to vaccinate enough people to make a big difference. What really could help would be a good flu vaccine. I think only about half of Americans typically get the flu shot every year and public health officials say if they can dramatically increase that it would really help a lot against this sort of one two punch that we're going to have to be confronting. But you're right about the country, not working well together on this starting with leadership both at the federal level, and also tim states, but also including people who are ignoring all the guidance that's going all the good advice from scientists and people are hesitant to get vaccines because of misinformation. As for testing you know by the fall. There will be some help. I expect doctors offices should have a supply of Rapid Kobe tests. They're like rapid strep test, or whatever the aren't super accurate, but they can help relieve some of the testing bottleneck and sort of looking down the line a little bit farther. Scientists are also working on next generation of tests that you might even be able to do. Do at home and you know those might be ready sometime. Next year next year seems pretty discouraging, doesn't it? It's pretty far off, but you know I'm pretty well resigned to the fact that we're going to be in this for the long haul. covid nineteen is going to be with us for years so even technology that seems far off right now. We'll still be needed
What is The Cloud
"John Listener Scott would like to know. What is the cloud, and is it really just other people surfers? Swear. We did this one I. Have I'M GONNA. Look it up. Someone needs to make some online tool like to. searchable John the. Good news is I did look up the word cloud on a robot or not archive and the only thing that came up was. So. I know I think it's fair game all right so the cloud the cloud really. So? We're GONNA. Talk you just to tell you a funny story about. We were a baseball game a couple of years ago and in San Francisco, an all the sponsors. The at the ballpark are tech companies as you might expect. And we played the game. Count the clouds. Because I swear to you. They were like nine different images of a cloud in various logos of various companies in that ballpark so. This is a very popular metaphor for whatever it. It's for what I'm asking you about. Yeah, there's a reason it's popular is so technology and the interconnectedness of us all advanced to the point where a a model of distributing work became feasible, that wasn't before because we were all connected by the Internet, and because I was ubiquitous and eventually fast, you could do things. That before had to be done where you were for technological reasons, and that opened up all sorts of business models. Hey, this thing that used to have to do where you are where someone would sell you a thing and it would arrive in a box, and you would set it up and you would do that thing now because we're all connected by this in high speed network and it's everywhere. We can do that thing for you over here if you give us some money because we have the thing and you don't have to get the thing ship to you right so the other people's on the cloud is other the computers our computers run by other people or whatever yeah, that's totally true. Made possible by the UBIQUITY and the power of the the bandwidth and latency of the Internet. And the reason you see all the logos on the baseball stadium are everywhere with the with the cloud logos is those are all businesses that have sprung up to fill that need like? We. Can you know you don't want to deal with the hassle? We want to make money by dealing with the hassle for you. We are providing value. You give us money flaw. It's a business and. That business wasn't possible before, and now it is, and so it makes sense. There's lots and lots and lots of companies that are out there doing it, and also it's a good business model. Lots and lots of successful companies don't go out of business because. You know. They're people want to do things with computers and they don't want to have to deal with, and you got to hire people and you got to keep them running, and you gotta fix them when they break, and those are all things you're willing to pay somebody else. Do perfectly somebody else far far away from you right? So that's the cloud. Cloud is other people's computers.

NAMI is bringing awareness to mental health throughout May
"Zip welcome to another special edition of the living, healthy podcast. Presented by L A fitness, as we continue bringing awareness to mental health throughout the month of may. We're working with nam e the National Alliance on mental illness, Naomi works year round to de stigmatize mental illness, and educate the public on ways to seek help. Learn more about mental health and get involved with their movement. Our guest today, is Rachel Robbins, manager of PR and external relations at nanny, she's had a very busy month, but we're thrilled to have her on the phone. So please welcome. Rachel robbins. Thank you guys, so much for having me. We are thrilled to be working with LA fitness this month. So I am so happy that we were able to make time to chat. Yeah, thanks for calling in and speaking with us before we get started. Can you actually share a little bit about your background and maybe how fitness has helped impact your life? Sure. So I actually just moved to Washington DC where I'm calling you guys from today. Day from New York City. So I don't know anybody. And I really used fitness as a way to get out and meet people in the community. So that's kind of the way that I. Get for millions with my brain's on taking a walk going to class on going to the gym. Luckily my apartment building has one so so that's been a great way to meet some neighbors on that just really recently is how fitness has impacted my own life. That's really nice. So he's tells a little bit more about what Namiki is what it stands for sure. So mommy is the national lines mental illness as you guys mentioned. And we are the nation's largest grassroots mental Health Organization and our mission is to provide advocacy education support, and public awareness, so that everyone that's affected by a mental illness whether that's individually or if they're supporting a family. Brand or a loved one can get the support and resources that they need to get better. So a little bit of a sidetrack here. But how do you pronounce it? Is it Nambi? Is it now? It sounds like you're saying NAMI. So where do you guys fall on that? So we pronounce it, NAMI. Now me. Okay. Okay. That's official. That's official now. It's nami. Okay. Yeah. Right. Okay. So can you. Let's talk about mental health in general. What is mental health to NAMI and kind of wise it so important that one you wanted to get involved with them, and then also that the organization exists in general. Sure, so mental health can be defined as the way we think feel and how we relate to others on genetics. The way that my brain functions your brain functions. The environment and lifestyle all player role in our mental health and mental health conditions are sometimes referred to as mental illness, and so they're interchangeable, they are common, and they are treatable approximately one in five people in the US, which is forty six point six million adults. Experience a mental illness mcgibbon year. Wow. That's so I that number is always I feel like gotta be so shocking to someone. That's never like thought about it before. Because you're like one in five like just like walk, walk down the island, your office in, like someone there, probably affected by it. Yeah. Yeah. Well, so kind of. It's important because it affects a lot of people, right? But why do you think in recent years, it's kind of gotten more attention and kind of it seems like in the last few years, all of a sudden now, more athletes, and celebrities and people are talking about mental health than they were before it. Why do you think that is? I think that, that's a huge ry reason what you just brought up about celebrities and athletes, no coming out and telling their stories and more awareness. Definitely plays a role. Specially in the media, the more that our media reports on it. There were more TV shows movies songs, whatever the case may be that deal with mental health. The more people are going to be talking to up talking about it. And this is particularly with regards to depression and anxiety. What we found is that the more people that are open to sharing their stories, the less it becomes. And we know the power of personal stories and our NAMI stories, help us, he'll provide us opportunities to participate, and inspire our communities and really encourage people have hoped which relationship. Right. I think that's so great. Honestly, that more people are talking about it. Because then you don't feel alone. You're like, oh, I'm not the only person feel like that. Yeah. It's, it's great what you guys are doing. And that's that's always important to not feel alone. So, and so you guys are really about trying to help people tell their stories in a sense. Absolutely. And that also goes into what our campaign is this may for mental health month. We're doing why care and it goes that core of that storytelling. Why do you care about mental health because why I care may be different than why you care, and so really getting to that personal connection to the cause of making it feel offensive. How would you say that exercise and fitness, you know, plays a role in helping those with mental health conditions? Yes. So we actually have seen studies that have shown that exercise can reducing variety and the Prussian as well as improve mood, it is. However, I just want to be very clear. It is not a substitute for treatment from a mental healthcare professional, right? It's just an addition. Yeah, yeah. However, but as with other health issues, it is recognized as a complimentary form of treatment of overall health and wellness for all mental health conditions. So what we actually saw from a study by the net National Institute of health found that all takes is thirty minutes a few times a week to produce mental health benefits thirty minutes. Seven that's it? Yeah. It's something when you boil it down like that you're kind of, like, yeah, that's okay. I give up one episode of TV show or something for mental health. And if you're really like in a tough spot that really might be worth that, that, I guess, sacrifice so to speak to do that. Would you see me? You watch TV as you're on the right. Yeah. That's right. You gotta find gotta find a way to say that time. What do you say when we're talking about stigmatism to and de-stigmatising mental illness? So what are some of the most stigmatized thoughts people have in society? Like what do you see as the big hurdles with this kind of movement? Yeah. So I think that we get stuck in them and talapity and that separates and isolates individuals it's their problem. It's not my problem when we can change that. And say us we can really chip away at sigma and make a difference ways that we can change. That is just like what we're doing now is having a conversation that is inclusive aware. Onus education really are the key to keeping this movement going on language that is inclusive verse labelling on the wall. It's like that advice can can go so many like can just be like, crawl across the board, right? Yeah. Smart people, caring about others. How do you how do you kinda help change that? How do you guys go about trying to make it more inclusive language like including the us versus them? And they how do you kinda what do you actually do to try and make that happen? Sure. So we operate year round we have our programs that, you know, you can find on our website from January December, but we really amplify in p periods. One of which is may which were in mental health month, also July is minority mental health month in addition to mental illness awareness week, which is the first full week of October. Right. Yeah. Last week or last year we did a weeklong campaign that was the first time Elliott finished got involved with. Campaign and yeah, it did really well like on social media, especially, like we had a lot of positive feedback from our community about how much exercise has helped them and how much they appreciate it us talking about it. So that one. So there's, there's multiple events throughout the year pretty much that try and draw wariness to this cause, and as we speak about exercise, actually, one of the amazing things that NAMI does is we have a mental health walks per gram, which is the largest one in the country et called NAMI watts. It's an almost hundred cities this year for just at ninety nine so it's phenomenal. The way that this program has grown and this year, more than fifty thousand people will join us and walk together to raise awareness of mental illness, and raise funds for the local NAMI affiliate. Which is absolutely incredible. That's great. We actually did it some people from corporate, mental illness. It was great man. We ours was at a angel stadium. So we actually got to go inside the baseball stadium. Yeah. Yes. He really cool. Yeah. So it is fun. The New York one which is actually this Saturday is across the Brooklyn Bridge. So that would be awesome icon of places in bringing people together you to look up some flights. Andrew. Oppy awesome. I've never been to New York. So that would be cool. I have so Rachel where where can people go exactly for help say, like self help group help therapy? Do you have to be diagnosed? I in order to see a doctor. How does the whole process work? Sure. So I saw NAMI has a help line that I encourage anybody who has questions can definitely utilize the numbers. One eight hundred nine five zero six two six four that's one eight hundred nine five zero six two six four for systens and our health line team, can answer questions, specific to a person situation in also can tailor. Their answer is based on where they live soon NAMI has a variety of different programs.

You know, there's only a couple of franchises in all of sports that can even you know, rival this and even have that it'd be in this conversation. So, but when I have a chance to see sandy Colfax around Tommy Lasorda around, obviously, Don Newcombe around Maury, wills and just understand that the guys that have played for the dodgers. And what the dodgers have meant to not only baseball, but sports, but civil rights, you know, this organization has done so much for our world. So for me to kind of be a small footprint in this organization is overwhelming. Though Mendoza lie with Sunday night. Baseball's. Jessica mendoza. Just knows this Sunday night baseball. We'll get cranked up. I think our first broadcast is on March twenty eight that Thursday, we're going to be in Seattle Red Sox against the Mariners.

But before we get to any baseball stuff. Just you are a natural for this week's theme question, which is baseball caps and the question of whether or not you you like to wear them the question, whether or not how many you have you have particular favorite that you like to wear I know the answer because you've seen you wear caps. You know, pretty much every Sunday in our meetings. When we when we get together. But on top of that. I mean, you you basically grew up in a in a baseball cap. Yeah. I I live in. I'm wearing one right now. I just I love baseball caps. I don't know like in for a variety of reasons. But like it to me, it's it's it's like, I know that I'm just like home like I've just can walk around because the one thing about like our job is one when we're on air, obviously can't wear a hat.

And it's it's kind of funny because I wanted around and no one really knows what it is. Or what it's for. And they think it's like whatever team morale worn, that's that's a hat. I will wear to Yankee Stadium or around the dodgers or Mets or whoever. And it's funny because everyone just thinks it's like about them.

"We'll know. Plane this to me because in Seattle we have a baseball stadium and football stadium. I'm with you so far, and they seem about the same size. They take up the same amount of ground. I think maybe the football stadium holds a few more people, but not that many more. I think you can put fifty thousand people in both of them more or less and football sells out there games. But they only have like seven games a year. Right baseball. Does. They don't always sell out their games, but they have like six hundred almost never sell out games here. But yeah, there are eighty one regular season baseball games here so eight. Yeah. Lucy's and football. So it would seem like baseball was bigger just because there's more. I almost think it diffuses it. You know baseball has one hundred sixty two games you really the amount. You can care about any specific one is less than zero. I feel like I feel that way about every score in a basketball game, except for the last ten do you think they should just skip to the last ten I do the. Basketball scores now are routinely like one hundred fifteen to one hundred and eleven and it should just been fifteen to eleven. I guess the difficulty is how would you decide what to make the score going into the last ten baskets? Do you think it always starts should be one hundred hundred should always be one hundred to one hundred? Yeah, that's a powerful advantage for the team that would not have scored one hundred on their own like the worst team is gonna love that rule or you could start at zero to zero and just make a basketball game. Like eleven minutes long. You can make if you did that you can make each basket like eleven points. Yeah. And then it would the scores would look about the same may would always be divisible by ten I guess people like watching basketball. So this isn't a thing that would interest them their life to watch you play rugby, you ski you have done these things I like watching. I'm very confused by televised. Rugby I don't understand what's going on. I didn't understand what was going on. When I was on the field. And I don't understand watching it. I was terrible rug. Did that cut your career short? The fact that you had literally no idea what the game was about it. It really did. And you're like I wanna castle off by queenside, John. How many times do we have to tell you? My teammates thought I was an advantage early on because I was big and and I could take punishment. So they would just send me into the fray. But then they realized they had no strategic. I'd no understanding of what to do if I ever got the ball. There's a hired there's nine dimensional rugby going on in people's minds. You were not at that level. No, it's smart, and it's also really physical. So you have to be smart whilst gang in combat. You gotta be Smit's ical. Yeah. And I was not I was not any of those things. I was just a big dumb like side of beef, but skiing, I like watching downhill ski racing. And I'm always thrilled when it's on. But there's no team sport. You're like, oh, let me turn on the game.
