"You so they. They're constantly kind of stretching what they've done in the past constantly changing and and kind of just just like. Where can we take this. We're going go with this because you have to remember. They are kind of a well. A garcia banjo out of bluegrass. That's his heritage. Fill less contemporary classical composers bob. We're kind of the rhythm guitarist kind of a country and western kind of thing singing. Those kinds of songs are Pig pen their or their original founders. Coming out of the blues world bill kreutzmann one of the drummer's kind of coming out of a I am marching band background Mickey hart there other drummer coming from a kind of a world music ethnomusicology kind of background and putting the all those things together they all. They have these opportunities. Just go like all these different places. It's it's it's unreal big meta text you know it's like almost like all did one band making something out of all kinds of music into one into one flow respect for all the music and know like ego to be like we are a rock band. We are in bluegrass band. Whatever it is and the whole thing like you talking about the hearing all the little parts of the music or we're just talking about that. It's reminded me recently. I had been. I bought a bunch of cd's for albums that i liked. Physical city is physical cds. The real cds and started listening into my car and songs. I've listened to so many times on spotify. Or whatever. And i think there's something to be said about how we are firmly in the streaming era of music. We have been now for a long time. Two years only the the longtime of two years and i wonder what a ban like this. You lose from just throwing it on spotify through even your laptop speakers or something like that in any band really and i think it's something to keep an eye on. If you really love music is that you do have to go out of your way to listen to it the right way because the the populist way that we get the music now it doesn't do it justice and i i do remember the days of You know getting high sitting in my car with friends had nowhere to go listening to a cd and being like wow the music it just like. It sounds different because we're high. It's like no. It's because the physical format that has higher quality tracks. You're blasting through this like five speakers. You all doing something dental set because he was a little bit because it was high but that means something and it does make me You know. I kind of want to try not to experience new music through just my laptop speakers on spotify when music was made in the album area era It was meant to be from start to finish in a certain order. And and when you listen and even even i. When i 'cause you know maybe i 'cause i'm i'm older now. That's still the way i listen to stuff. I rarely will listen to like. Oh track This particular track. And you know after that's off like a spotify would be like what do you call it shuffle almost. Yeah i never do that. I always start from the beginning of the concept as the artist. I think intended to the to the to the end. There's a three act structure to. I'm sure for there. Can there can be but yeah. You're wonder how many albums are like albums created after the streaming era your are actually designed like that versus designed more for like. Oh we need the single to hit on track two and track five So i wonder the value in doing that for albums. That weren't made that way but yeah. There's there's quite a few albums that i like. Yeah i have to listen them front to back because there is something sonically. yeah yeah. Is there anything else will have uncovered lose lots. Probably millions ever feeling. This could be four hour episode letter. If there's anything else we have The we have in cupboard. We can use that information in the ratings ratings work. We're going to the grateful dead on a scale of zero to ten And we're gonna use something else as a reference and it can be anything it could be something similar to grateful dead. The rolling stones we mentioned them are at ten grateful. Dead's nine or it could be something as obscure as chocolate chip. Cookies are renate grateful. Dedza tan anything you want. And if that's confusing it all me and sasha will go i. why don't you start. i'm gonna go first. I am going to choose for my comparison a musical group with a big fandom a big passionate fandom that i am not very familiar with their music i'm gonna choose. Bts the korean boy who bts structures. I think there's some similarities not one to one obviously just even generational in how the music And gets put out there. But i don't know much about bt s. I know more about their fans than i do music. And that's the same for grateful dead And i'm gonna say bt i'm gonna give an eight. I hear their fans doing a lot of socially conscious stuff making a lot of Impacts with the internet and things like that saw give them at eight I think i've actually listened to less bt than grateful dead though so grateful dead. I'm gonna go ahead and give an eight as well i think. Bts and grateful dead cher dna. What a compliment. I rotate. It really depends who you are. If that's a compliment or not. All right i'll go next I'm not a musical person. I keep saying it but It's important for me to just lead with that even after listening to a few albums of great for the grateful dead. I'm mostly fascinated. Which is jerry garcia himself and his story and who he was and those are the most Exciting moments for me. Were like to see even his him being the musician and how he was treated as a prophet but also how he would create the space and of course the whole band but he still was the leader of the ban on like he would create the space for people to basically go to the show. Possibly half psychedelics is like very welcome. you know activity and then go through this like life. Changing journey like night after night on psychedelics in the crowd of people and then he would this ballads that would bring them back into like sort of the human experience and to me. Like that's the most fascinating you're moderate like this creating space for psychedelic experiences and also like adding such humanity to To to complement the growth of each participant in this group mind activity. So that's like the most fascinating aspects for me of the grateful dead. I am going to compare the grateful dead very controversial against wean. Oh wow.

Ah, windy, Warm day high of 84. That's where we are right now. This is fresh air. Let's get back to the interview I recorded yesterday with Jeffrey Gettleman. Who speaking to us from New Delhi, India, is experiencing the world's worst coronavirus crisis. Gentleman says sickness and death are everywhere. He's the New York Times South Asia Bureau chief, and before that he was the Times East Africa Bureau chief based in Kenya. You've reported from war zones before you've been kidnapped in Iraq. But we were when you were in the war zones and when you were kidnapped, Did you have family with you? Did you have Children yet? No, And that's like that's like the biggest difference. It's that I've taken risks on my own. I've had some very close calls. I believe strongly in the work we do, and I've been willing to put my life on the line. Tol it. But I never dragged my family along with me and We're all here in New Delhi. Together. We're living this pandemic. We made the decision not to go home. We knew we knew other families that left during the first wave and have left in the last month to go back to the states or other places. Safer places. We This is our home. This is our my kids are in school here, even on the virtual there on Indian schedule. My wife is working here. My job is to cover the news here. We don't really have a great choice and we don't want to split up. There's so many different rules and restrictions that are happening between flying flying between different countries. We don't know what would happen if kids went home with with my wife and I stayed back. We might not see each other for a long time. So that's that's what's different. It's like we're in this together and We're looking out for each other. It's not. It's not all bad, like we spent a lot of time I am helping my kids with school and much more involved than I had been before. It's just exhausting. It's just frankly, it's just really exhausted. And all I can think of is like how much I want this to end and to be free and to talk to people without a mask and tow travel around and to take an airplane to a new place and do my work and to have my kids run around outside and get some fresh air. Like that's what I'm thinking about. Is the family all in agreement not to leave not to go back to the states? No, we went We all went back and forth on this. It was a very hard decision to make. We felt really unease. E a couple weeks ago, when friends of ours were getting sick and couldn't find a place tol up. I had one friend in American friend. Who got really sick and was in critical condition and in a hospital, and that was really scary because they couldn't find the medicine to help him. The kids don't really know. Like life in the states. They grew up in Kenya, where we worked before they were born in Kenya. We move to India. Like this is this is sort of the life they're used to, Um But they were scared like they asked me, they're like Daddy is getting better. You know what's going on? They they're they're not. You know, they're listening to me having this conversation with my colleagues about the death toll and the infection spread. And you know the latest story we're doing about people who died in the cremation grounds and smoke in the air like they're living this And we don't We try not to lie to them. We don't want to tell them. Things are great when they're not, um We also want to kind of form a wall and just let them Let let let them not have to worry about this. And I tell my nine year old pretends to get worried. Sometimes we have a rule and I say Rule is Don't worry until you have to. And that's like our rule, and he starts to worry. I said, Just remember the rules like Don't worry until you have to. And that's That's sort of how we've been living this from the beginning. If you decided to go back to the U. S. Would you be able to would you have access to Flying out to a plane. Right now. There are few airlines. I think exactly two Air India and United who are flying direct flights back to the U. S. As an American citizen, I'm allowed to go back to the U. S. But there's many fewer options. There were many different ways to get get home and those airlines have stopped taking passengers from India. Flights are getting canceled. So right now, we could We could get out and we may when when school is over, Take the kids home to get them. Out in some fresh air, and then I'll come back. But you know I don't I don't. I don't want to abandon this story. I don't want to abandon the people I work with, like that's part of it. It's theirs. And if the family has decided that we're not going to split up, that's that's where the decision gets really hard to make. Because my job is here. I don't I don't have Ah, a job that I can easily do from the states. Right now. This is my job. It's to cover this place is to explain it. It's to bring it to those outside of India and to try my best to To write about like to write about this crisis and humanity and the inhumanity and the fear. Um Team to make it to make people really connect with it, like I see that, as part of my job is to create empathy for those who who are suffering. And occasionally works occasion. We do stories that people that really resonate with people. Um, I wrote this first person story a couple weeks ago about just how scary it was to be in Delhi right now. And a lot of people read it. And I heard from folks like that I hadn't heard from in years and I felt qualified. T do something like that. A lot of times I've covered conflicts. I'm not the one getting shot it. I'm not the one getting abused. The injustice isn't hitting me as the journalist but in this case, I'm living in the same city. Yes, I have more resource is I have a nice apartment. I have a loving family. Um I'm able t insulate myself to some degree, but not totally. And as we've seen in this crisis, like the people with three sources and privilege have have died by the thousands So there's no there's no escape right now. Jeffrey Gettleman. It's really been great to talk with you. I'm sorry it's under these circumstances. And I hope that you and your family managed to stay healthy. And thank you for your reporting on behalf of ah of a lot of your readers. I will. Thank you. For your reporting. And in eking out a final like positive note to end on, I will say you've got some mighty good Internet. Our connection has been really good better. In the connection that we have with a lot of our guests in the U. S. Is that typical in India Strong Internet It is pretty we have We have good Internet in our house. India has enormous amounts of technology and You know, some things here work really well, and I think that's part of the frustration of this period is is like this..

"That was Grateful Dead drummer Bill kreutzmann from documentary long strange trip. Hey, by the way, we know some of you are listening today because the band shared our announcement of this show on their official Facebook page, welcome. We are. So glad you're with us today for those of you who are new to this program. One a covers a little bit of everything politics pop culture world events. What's happening in your neighborhood? We talk about it, all and we love talking about music. Some of our best shows have been with artists describing how they make music or about trends in the music business. You can listen to more of our shows on music online at the one A dot org. That's the word the the number one the letter A dot org. So welcome glad you're with us. We certainly hope you come back. Glad also that you've shared some of your stories with us some of which are just too cute. For words. Here's one we got from tweet. Hi, I'm Lucy beat. I'm ten years old. I went to my first Grateful Dead concert last June. My favorites. Song is standing on the moon. I like it because it makes me feel peaceful. And because it teaches the lesson that it's most important to be with the ones you love. Kyle is in Durham, North Carolina. Kyle emailed, I think one of the things that millennials really love is the vast collection of live shows that can be found on the internet. The Grateful Dead has become so much more accessible in the age of the internet, and considering there are hundreds of unique shows to listen to online a younger dead head may never get bored. David Lemieux could you react to Kyle, particularly with regard to the challenge of dealing with digital music over the years. How did the band kind of wrestle with that? Well, I certainly I do agree with them that there is an unlimited amount of grateful that here he said something about younger fans, never growing tired of it. I'm an older fan. And I'm certainly still discovering stuff all the time. And the music is out there just as it was in the tape trading days. I think it's just the format that has changed. Changed Holly touched on it that she was into tape trading or CD trading, and then that just evolved into digital music whether that streaming or downloading so really not much has changed in terms of how Grateful Dead fans are able to get the Grateful Dead. And then what we do on the official side of things is create these. Whether they're Dave's picks, or these box sets is we we recognize that there are fans who certainly do want that physical thing that's as good as a compulsively sound and is packaged as well. As it can be. I think the debtor now up for their fourth Grammy in the last five years for best package design on a box set. And that's really for the fans who do want that physical side of things in the best quality it can be and at the same time. There is music available for streaming and downloading and again, it's the same thing that we were doing thirty years ago. And instead, we were trading cassette tapes, and we were sending blanks and postage to people. Now, it's maybe a little easier, and I don't know if it's a little easier. It's certainly a little quicker to get your Grateful Dead fixed. Right. If you want some, but it really hasn't changed short of the format. Casey read love you to chime in on this too. Since you lead music licensing at siriusxm which has a gigantic millions and millions and millions of songs archive. What about the digital aspect of music sharing and how that affects the phantom? Well, you know, there are all kinds of resources to get your debt on as David mentioned in Sirius XM has channel Twenty-three Grateful Dead channel and David's on a lot of time. And I enjoy listening to him when you think about the internet nowadays, you have apps like religion and Hetty version that are built on something called the internet archive, which is a storehouse of a lot of the concerts. That were taped over the thirty years with the Grateful Dead were active, but it's interesting to note that folks who built web two point, oh, the people who were the original web adopters. A lot of them were dead heads you had communities at MIT and Stanford trading showed files and set lists back. Before most folks, even understood what the World Wide Web was. And now, of course, that's grown to this. Tremendous universe of discovery that I know I benefit from on a daily basis. It's just so exciting to be able to fire up a show or even chart the evolution of a song in concert over thirty years or find out what it entered a set or fell out of the set, and that, of course, appeals to the stats obsessed, folks. So it's a little bit like being into sports in that way. And Holly bowling, I imagine that the the kind of connection you've made with fans would not be possible, or it would be very very different. But for the fact that technology has made us so much more connected. Yeah. I mean, I think I have a career in music as a result of the ease of music and an live stuff being passed around. You know? Jason sentence in Email. Speaking of cute stories, we heard about little ten-year-old Lucy. Be I think Jason is trying to out cute Lucy. Be Jason emailed. I just took my four year old daughter. Scarlett to the shows in Mexico where she saw her first scarlet begonias. She was thrilled. I've been a dead fan since college in the early nineties. My college aged nieces now join me at shows thanks to John Mayer, and they've come to love the debt is well, my wife has even come to enjoy them. David is right. It's the music. He bus driver tweeted, I worked for the bus company that hauls a lot of these guys on tour. One of the greatest things about working for dead. Members is the fans super happy super cheerful and positive human beings. Always contrast that with what block stopper, tweeted block, stopper rights. I find Grateful Dead to be unbelievably mediocre and underwhelming. I see their popularity as a result of drug culture and cult-like social bonding the music seems secondary to these aspects Casey as soon as I read that I saw you start scribbling notes curiously on that the legal pad over there. You should have seen his for. He went and started. Yeah. Copter that. Yes. So what? So what's your reaction now to be fair? There is that whole connotation about drug culture. Haight. Ashbury late sixties like there's a tad of truth to that. Look, I come from the dead skeptic community originally. So I have a lot in common with that commenter back when the dead were active. They were the world's largest mobile psychedelic cult. But it just helps that I'm actually interested in things like called. So, you know, that's actually an attractive point for me. At least in terms of looking at the the evolution of that community. I think Bob weir was asked his feelings on Deadheads once and he said something to the effect of their great. The only issue I have with them as they have a tendency to only listen to the Grateful Dead. I think that's changing now when I talk to young people, you know, these are kids who were just musically voraciously, listen to all kinds of different styles. I know metal fans are into the dad. I know hip hop fans are into the dead. And so it's maybe. A little less hermetic and insular than it was twenty five years ago. David. Yeah. I listened to a lot more music than the Grateful Dead now than I did thirty years ago. There was a time for six or eight years where I listened to literally nothing, but the Grateful Dead and my entire life revolved around trading tapes and going to shows and listening to the dead and talking about the Grateful Dead. And now, I do certainly listen to a lot more. And I think more than anything that's to almost clear my head. I listened to a lot of debt I listened to many many hours a day of Grateful Dead. And you know, I I listen to that that Email that you just read about the mediocrity of the Grateful Dead. And you know, I don't get that. But certainly I bet there's people who don't like pizza, and I I don't understand that either. But neither do I want nothing to do with any of those exact, right? And so, you know, it's it's it's Jeremy is the one who said that the Grateful Dead or like licorice and some people like licorice and those who. Do really like licorice and those people who don't just don't. And that's okay. There's lots of room on other buses. I'm sure I don't get it. But. You know, it's certainly a matter of taste. I I've I know quite a few people who are not into the Grateful Dead. And yet I've played them something like hollies version of is of the world. And they love it. They think they don't know what's Grateful Dead. And they hear it. They think it was beautiful wonderful piece of music, and the just something about the music that to some people that just might not be that appealing by the way, if you're listening now, and you don't like pizza don't tweet me, please no angry letters. It's just a joke. People. These are jokes. These are jokes Holly. I'd love to get your take on this as well. But first let me play another take from a young fan of the Grateful Dead. Here's what Ryan left in our inbox. My name is Ryan. And I'm calling from Fort Collins, Colorado, I'm twenty nine and I think that this is happening because there's a low key underground psychedelic renaissance happening right now in the United States as people are looking into this. They're finding that they need to draw from some experience of the past and the Grateful Dead has deep deep linkages with psychedelic culture. Ryan, thanks for calling in and sharing your thoughts with us Hollywood. What's your take on that? I just think it's never been for everybody. And that's fine. You know, it's it's never been a mainstream thing it's always been kind of a bunch of outlaws misfits and mischief makers and. And. For me like with what I'm doing the music on piano. One of the biggest honors and things that I hold closest is hearing that people who have never been able to understand the dead or appreciate what they do that someone's played them one of my versions of it. And that's open the door for them to get it. And then end of diving into the catalog and understanding this incredible thing. The debt of created. So for me. That's I don't know. I don't know. Really special. Sam is in Punta Gorda, Florida. Sam emailed musically. They reached that fever pitch or critical mass in their performances. I seek out these moments and refer to them as music's transcendental potential. It's the moment when everything else ceases to exist or matter the dead achieved that my personal favorite dead song is alpha also the favourite of Avery climate who co this conversation. Sammy tweeted I was three years old from ten to four to three..

They would like to drive off the lot with if they're good boss their manager. Don here would let down and so now we've actually got Don here, the boss the man that runs the show here. And so would you everybody's picked one vehicle so far? And I'm wondering if you would take the same one if you could walk out with anything right now. The album pick the same one all the same one. So far. Wow. You know, I think I would go with the towel. So Alva pick the same one. Then you can't beat that. Now. I mean, I have not in it. But I'm I'm going to get in there after after our shows over with because I think Nick said is comparable to being like feeling like you're in a movie theater with those cushy seats recliner, and feels like you're in a home away from home, right? And for the ride quality of ride comfort. Not so decent gas mileage, but not too bad. I mean could be worse. Well, I don't think if you're buying that you're buying it for the for the gas mileage. For the luxury for the aesthetics for the look for the for the comfort ability. But a great family car too. Right. Yep. Definitely well done we've been asking had a little bit of fun. What is before we get into the fun though? What is it like managing the preowned certified lot here working with this team here Crispin Chevrolet. You know, it's. It's been a great experience for me on the one nice thing. I like the own with a lot of customers after we make the sale will come up to me. And they'll thank me. Let's say this is the best spine experience. Instead car buying experience. Much makes me feel good for my staff. So. Yeah. I mean, that's one of the things that each of the guys John, and Nick and Aaron and Omar all pointed out about the the car buying experience. How much you you you go out of your way possible for the? I don't know what that was what that's unlike. Mario Kart space invaders. Yeah. A major myself there. But the how how much you guys go out of your way for the car buying experience for the customer. We make sure the customer gets taken care of we've got a good reputation in the area, and we don't want to soil that. All right. Don, a couple of fun questions for you. So any nears as Aleutian this year? I did not do one on one way usually breaker by the second week anyway. So yeah, I'm with you. I think there's for me New Year's resolutions are something that it's got to be tangible that you really can't just be well, I want to lose weight or I want to eat less. I want to drink. I mean, it's got to be something that you really want to commit to one of the ones for my my wife, and I we wanted to go to church more often. And so we've been going to church every single Sunday and just trying to explore that a little bit more. And so something that we can make a concrete, and plus that we can keep each other honest about right? Wakes up on Sunday morning, and I don't want. Well, hey on a second. We made this promise to each other. So, but I can understand not wanting to do they fade away so quickly. Yes, they do. One good way to get to church every Sunday teaches Sunday school class. I do fifth and sixth graders at the church. I go to gotta show up. That is a. Yeah. They'd be in trouble without you. So Don, what's up first car that you've ever owned first car that was a Volkswagen rabbit five-speed a Volkswagen rabbit? All right. I don't think I've ever heard of that one. How what year was that? You know? Oh it back in eighty four eighty five. It's probably a seventy something. Okay. Okay. And by the time we got rid of it at rusted out floorboards. I was. My dad worked at a top coat and Adrian, and we're putting up on a hoist and the car was the inside was going up and the car was on the ground. So oh my goodness. Okay. Okay. That must've been quite an didn't have cell phones back then. Video to capture down. What's the most miles you ever put on a car? Probably on that Volkswagen rabbit 'bout one hundred and fifty thousand. Well, what is I mean? Because obviously if you come to the pre-owned lot every car here is going to have some miles on it. So what should the customer know about if they have a hesitation, well, it's got twenty thousand miles. It's got forty thousand miles. What that hesitation how do you overcome that when you're talking to a customer? Well, every car that we bring in. We have inspected no matter if it has ten thousand miles or we've been head of vehicle over two hundred thousand miles. I mean, it goes through inspection to check out make sure, you know, runs runs drives stop steers to safe car. So all right. Well, great stuff from here at Bill kreutzmann Chevrolet in selene, six nine four seven east Michigan avenue and come on down to the preowned certify lot Don is the manager here. He's done a terrific job. All the salespeople are fun and engaging. And obviously that's part of the key is having someone that you can come in. And just kind of have a good rapport with will definitely I mean, we want to make it an easy car buying. Experience for everybody. I mean, we're not high pressure. We're going to find the car that they need. All right. Thanks very much for joining Don. Thank you. All right. Hey, ms. I got a question for you about. Okay. So I was thinking about this little bit. We're talking about it's either yesterday or or on Tuesday about the Detroit sports scene. Right. And how lousy it is right now. And so. I was having this conversation my brother, and and then he he was talking about the spring training coming up and. On what level was excited for spring training? And it led me to this question compared to the season when the season started. Like, are you more or less excited for the Red Wings right now compared to when the season started in the pistons right now compared to when the season started? I would say right now with the Red Wings. It's kind of almost even. I think really mostly because of the fact that you're looking at a team that there wasn't a lot of high expectations for this wings team going into the season and other they made the to me they made the the signings and the re signings that they needed to make you know, they need to find a way to bring Larkin bag the need to find a way to resign. Br Tuesay and mantha and Anthony see you those were really the big ones and try to find a big defenceman, and they found it with with my green. But for the most part there really hasn't been much. They kind of wild me this season with the wings and they're on a two game win streak right now that they haven't had since the beginning of December. They're looking for a three game win streak coming up on Friday. I think is when they play Calgary on the road and that'll be their first three game win streak since November. So it's nothing to do. Really? Wow about. So I mean, it's it's still another rebuilding year next year. We'll see how things pan out when it comes to. The the potential of Stevie y being, you know, the general manager which a lot of people wish and hope that, but I don't know if they'll actually happen. Go ahead. Zach. That's one alum, you know, that that, you know, we talked about Woodson coming back, and I know pistons fans like oh Chauncey Billips should be the GM and rip Hamilton should be the coach Steve wise, one alum you do want. Because right now his team's on what one hundred thirty point pace. I mean, it's just he's just able to build else. Yeah. Tampa hasn't to my last time I checked they haven't hit the double digit loss column yet. They may have. But the last time I checked they were top of the division top of the NHL with points right now. They're not at the we're not even at all star break. And you're looking at a team that's over seventy points in the league right now with stevia wide comeback. And it's kind of one of those things where do you buy out Kenny Holland contract because they resigned off for two years. Do whatever you do. You get rid of Kenny Holland. I trust me. I am on that. I am on that so box with you probably kicking you off with an even bigger microphone and walkie-talkie the speak to the people in the back of the room. But. It's one of those things where how much of a bio would it be? I know that the wings are coming off of a couple of bio contracts coming at the end of the season. So that's one thing. The the kind of look to look at it regards to the pistons my expectations they've gone down substantially. I mean, we're looking at a new head coach I came in here who was the coach of the year last year. This was a essentially gives Blake Griffin a chance to start the with this franchise at a new and they started out hot. There are a great team to watch they were hot. And now they've kind of fallen off the face of the earth where at one point they were a second or first place in the east. Now, they're in tenth place in the conference. And exactly I mean, they haven't strung a streak of of wins in a row since December as well. I remember hearing that stat. On the sports gave a couple of weekends back. They haven't strung a winning streak since December. And it's it's really sad that you got such decent tailing on the team where you should be able to at least get two wins out of every three or four games at least and make yourself in contention at least in the middle of the Eastern Conference playoff scenario. But they just haven't been able to pull it off. And it makes you wonder what does this franchise need to do to get themselves back into a potential playoff franchise. And it makes you wonder if that comes to the well, it makes it makes you wonder if it if it comes into off season acquisitions we where some contracts need to be shipped out or whatnot. I mean, I know the pistons one of the big issues when they acquired Blake was the fact that there was a lot of contracts a lot of extraordinary contracts that you couldn't really make any big signings in the off season. So that was one of the big reasons why. When the pistons had a, you know a hot start to the seasons. Like, oh, we've got a franchise that can actually do something. The lines weren't really doing much and obviously the Tigers run the off season. So it's it's either Red Wings. Hopefully, they can kind of find a way where they get themselves in a in a maybe in a second wildcard spot or we've got these pistons who are starting out red hot. But now they're cooling off and they're on the back burner. And it makes you wonder what's this range is going to do moving forward. Well, I think the I think the pistons are what they are. And until you until you can get rid of Drummond and Reggie Jackson with obnoxious contracts and players that don't quite fit into the current NBA model of success. You're just kind of stuck. I mean reminds me back in the day when Joe Dumars after he had all the great success. He went out and signed Charlie Villanueva. And and Ben Gordon, and you look at those two contracts, and they just kind of screw the pistons for a long time, and until you could unload those guys you were stuck and then now they're stuck with these two guys. And you know, his Blake Griffin building block piece. I I don't know. I mean, he certainly he's an exciting player and he's had some good success in the past. But I if the pistons are thinking that in the next three years, maybe his window that he's going to be the face, and they're going to become this top three team in the in the east. I think they're sorely mistaken. And last week in a low those contracts, you got I mean, I don't like the idea of tanking. But you've gotta get a top. Five pick in the draft and kind of start and maybe build around whoever that guy is the pistons three three seven in the last ten the wings three six and one in their last ten both of them are under five hundred. I mean, I was I was a little more hopeful for the wings and the pistons come in the year, just because I knew the roster makeup of the pistons. Hey, you told you said they shouldn't tank they should work on getting to the playoffs. Yeah. That was sort of the mistake. And I was I was crazy. But no, I'm really down on Devlin the pistons because I just don't see any light at the end of the tunnel. The Red Wings. There's such a young team. I like doing Larkin Lakewood obscene from from some of the some of those guys. And so at least you can start to get a little bit more optimistic about what's to come. But it's not gonna happen this season. So I would say about the same for the for the wings and lasts for the pistons right now. See I think I might have the I don't think I'm more for either of them about the same for the pistons think think they can still expect to make. I mean if they don't make the playoffs. It's, you know, something something went wrong because their talent is superior to that of a lot of teams in the east. And I think one thing drives me nuts with the pistons is their owner. I mean. Blake Griffin's done a lot for the pistons. But my goodness that trade never should have happened. I mean, they had you know, Tobias Harris is this young emerging star Avery Bradley kinda swung and missed. Their sounds like seems like Boston just made him look a lot better. But even he was doing fine. And then you still have the first round pick. And so really Tom Gores just wanted to have his neighbor on the team. But you know, oh, yeah. We'll have Blake Griffin and everyone will want to come to Detroit..

I didn't name and Billy both of them NFL playoff start tomorrow. Guys in of these eight teams that are in it. We're gonna have to find the one team that can win the Super Bowl. But it starts chronological. Okay. Houston against in the one thirty five pm tomorrow. The Houston Texans are one point favorites over the Indianapolis Colts. And I have to confess of the four-game sued. No, that's that's the one that. At least appeals. I told Murph off the right? It's in Houston. Yeah. But I told Murph honestly, I go, dude. I don't know what the culture capable of. I I know very very little about this year. They were one in five and they finished ten six one nine of their last ten. Meanwhile, Houston lost his first three and then one nine in a row, the NFL. Boy, this is the two teams that go. But here's the stat. That's interesting. And it's all about the line, man. Don't forget don't sleep on drafting linemen, and they drafted that Quentin Nelson at of Notre Dame, and he's been mauling people. Andrew luck is the guy who's who was sacked out of the league fifty six times last year and this year or he wasn't that wasn't the he wasn't the quarterback. But still they allowed fifty six last year this year the NFL low eighteen sacks. So you gotta be able to protect man. How do we feel about the Niners next year is that line up to the task of protecting? I mean, you know, Tomlinson wound up winning the Bob McKittrick award. That was interesting. Yeah. So anyway, I have really no feeling on that game. I got to go with the home team. But I mean, we're gonna forecast later, but just kind of in terms of an interest or sizzling passion level. I'm going put of the four games. I'm going to put this one number four. This one's interested in the game. Yeah. Yeah. It's also the first of the whole weekend. I think right. Yeah. Then we go into Saturday night guys Saturday night. This is a good game right here. Yeah. By the way, the the Indy. Houston game is an ABC isn't ESPN game. So it was weird me SPAM gets a playoff game. Then we go to Joe bucket evening. We're live in Dallas five fifteen. My boy Joe buck the Seattle is at the Dallas Cowboys, paulie, the spread is Dallas is a two point favorite over Seattle. Now, they have some own age Seahawks. Beat them this year. Twenty four to thirteen and Dallas has lost three straight to the Seahawks. Put one TD against him. A peak carols got a little food do over them and Bonnie Jo Cowboys pretty well. And you know, your buddy you call them red Jason Garrett. You remember that will? Yeah. Because he was supposed to be everybody wanted him out. And here he is in the playoffs. So Jerry feels vindicated by all this right here defense has stepped up and like I said Zico has a big day the Seahawks have trouble stopping the run. The Cowboys could win especially the Seahawks are different on the road. But it is a playoff game. We know that Russell Wilson steps up during those games. Yeah. And they also they run the ball. Crazy. I team Seattle is the first team in the NFL with the thousand yard rusher and three guys with at least three yards on the on the ground three hundred yards on the ground since the oh one Steelers. They run the ball like crazy. But in that one again, I'd say of the four games that is the most appealing playoff game in terms of. And and star power and just kind of, you know, Pete Carroll and Jerry Jones, and and all that. But I want both teams to lose. I can't. So what I'm gonna do is. I'm not going to be upset with either team that wins. I'm going to be happy with the team that leaves enjoy watching that said I'm going to enjoy whoever loses. That's my that's my game plan. If it's and if it's if it's gum chomping, Pete Carroll who loses great if it's Jerry Jones who loses. Great, by the way. If Dallas loses does read keep his job. I mean, how would that be possible? I don't know Jerry really loves Jason. I know. But at some point you got to Tennessee. Yeah. Yeah. He did end up closing out. Pretty good. Yeah. So but Cowboys I mean, they keep him because he does. Yeah. I think he still stays. Then we go into Sunday morning and the playoffs. Yeah. Division. I think you definitely stays division champ ten wins. As listen, you know, and he loves them and keeping them after eight win seasons after ten wins there. And now we go into Sunday morning and here he is gentleman. Jim you're in your your park James hotels or Sunday morning, isn't he just too easy into the into Sunday morning vibe? He's unbelievable. I still can't believe are the depth of our friendship with this guy was like somebody who was like somebody rang my doorbell one day, I opened the door. And Jim Nance was standing there said I think I'll hang out with you now and ever since then like we've been inseparable the three of us. We've been in the wine cellar volley in the wine cellar, by the way. It was very impressive. Have a whole pad was impressive me hitting the Gulf shots in his backyard. Well, listen, that's when I really started getting nervous because he wanted me to take shots. I'm that. Don't don't ask me to do that? Jim Murphy, all the golf shots. Let let Murph represent the Eminem show when it comes to keep it on the down low. But now it has since been written about in golf digest. So we can talk about it. He has a replica of Pebble Beach. Seventh hole in his backyard in miniature the seventh. Is a very famous par-three that's way out on the peninsula. That's so dramatic Murchison ship chicken ball. He built a replica par-three with an elevated tee that comes down to the shape of the green. And the key is is that from that t-. If you look down to the rising, you can see the central from his house. So it's where he got married to the lovely Courtney there. So it's like gyms living a living your best life gymnasts live his best life you've played it. And he invited me out. And he said would you like to take it? And he said what he has is restricted flight golf balls which hardcore golfers. No, you can go out you take a full swing. You can practice and smack him. And instead of it going to one hundred and eighty yards. It goes sixty yards because goes like one third the distance. So it's like, I guess the par-three seventh hole of pebble is like lettuce at one hundred and ten twenty. Sure, I don't know what it one hundred ten I've only played it like ten times not to brag. But anyway. It's so his his backyard is like fifty yards like little fifty yard chip shot that you hit and they did it. And then paulie member don't forget. There was music tinkling out of the bushes. The whole thing for me was the music. Had strategically place. Speakers in like, shrubbery and stuff. So you really couldn't see the speakers what the sound starts seeping in. And I'm still speculating as a sound aficionado, which I am. I'm always interested in like, you know, speakers I was just talking about this yesterday about having a good amp at home, and like how good your music and sound. But I'm telling you right now, there's a foot trigger back there. I guarantee there's a foot trigger has. No, it wasn't like he picked up a remote and pointed. It wasn't like you went through a traditional amp. And like turned a dial all the sudden the music started plane learning over my shot. I said to Merv afterwards that he triggered that thing with this foot. I was standing over my shot, and I have said. Smurfs. It.
