Because baylor's taking on houston and then undefeated gonzaga is playing this unlikely cinderella. Ucla and i feel the need to start with ucla. Myron because i don't think anyone outside of bill walton saw any of this coming. I don't think anybody's saw them knocking off. A one seed in michigan bell. Takes the basketball dickinson looking choirs. An adviser turns players at three for the good off. The back of the ramp and ucla has water from i. Four to the final four for the nineteen taught school history the first since two thousand eight. The bruins aren't going off final four. Ucla's own players are using words like surreal unreal. When they're asked to describe what this ride to the final four has been like. So how did ucla pull all of this out of the anyone knows and it's funny because a lot of people are saying. Hey you should have believed in the pac twelve. But i demanded all pac twelve fans. Show me they're brackets so we can see if they even believed in the past well. Ucla came out of nowhere and just to beat a team like michigan. That was legitimately a great team. That people thought might be able to some trouble and here. They are just winning game after game. I mean if you want to sum up the chaos of the entire twenty twenty twenty twenty one season. It's ucla in the final four right now after. Not even being the best team in the pack twelve so they make it from the first four to the final four. The second team since vcu to do that. When i saw them beat michigan.

"Okay. I quickly learned that bill realizes that there are situations bigger than him as the pandemic is and he was making the best our show. I i don't feel trapped. I live the dream and the luckiest guy. I'm very to laurie. Not for long enough but it might treat all we've been here for forty two years. This is the old bitter children were ordered all raised. Nothing good by life could happen. That would take me to leave. Where live right now. The challenge that we face is to never been done before chart a new path forward. I went into this interview assuming that it was going to be a run of the mill journalists interviewee relationship but i quickly learned that you kind of just have to go with the flow and let bill kind of be your guide. He talked about how he has to get his body ready every single day in order to be in the right state of mind from a mental perspective to call games late at night. Study all the time a given oral examination very regular basis that you have to score near perfect talks if you want keep the most humanizing factor of this was talking to bill. After a game called that he did not enjoy from his own perspective. He struggled at night when arizona state played arizona down in tempe and he made like no bones about it. Like what you're a player. You states which i did a lot tonight and there's and i won't sleep tonight's in Brilliant the next and hopefully hopefully. I'll be better the next and sometimes you wonder if it's a little hyperbolic but i kept you know kind of digging in it at bill and asking him why and he mentioned when you're a former professional athlete your brain is wired to do something so the absolute fullest of your ability. And when you fail to do that. It's hard to reconcile that. She is the only the high of a big game of kickball but Performance you also get the low as australia collapsed tonight our struggling as have trouble identifying the players and here i am on the phone trying to l. bill walton. In a sense that it's okay like we all make mistakes and we all have struggles. No day or performance is going to be perfect. But i really found that really disarming and humanizing because i think we get famous people and assume that they're made of teflon and everything bounces off of them but with bill. It was the complete opposite. Bill walton famously. Loves to bike in the pandemic has he has. He picked up the peleton. So many people have. How is he dealing with that. So long does not do peleton. He has every bike of bill. Walton's is custom made because of his six eleven frame. He has still to this day. A custom made eighty style. Steel road bike that he has mounted in his gym. And unlike us millennials where we have people yelling at us over a screen. Bill walton just has old recordings of tour de frances from previous years and just finds motivation in watching those over and over and over again a bit. I watched it all year. All with twenty one stages of implantable television at production watching championship. Offense bill walton doesn't need you know some hipster in brooklyn yelling at him to peddle faster. He wants to watch people who have been toward the franz champions in order to motivate him. Well what were some of the highlights of your conversation. I really enjoyed hearing. Bill walton when talking about the political sphere around this country and him hearing his voice crack when talking about. Amanda gorman's poem at the presidential inauguration. Louis great danes. Chris about by lies is that i get to spend my times with people like a band gorge and our world is full of them. She's really special really special. And those are the kind of people who i want to be around people who you know. I want him dirt from expired by tbeat a guy. I looked to be warm. i don't like being cold. You live up there. And as i like to be warranted heads that was ever a spectacular day of happiness joy. Hope never in a million years. I think i'd be on my desk at my desk at eleven pm on a thursday night. Hearing bill walton like choke is talking about a presidential inauguration and the second time he got choked up was i asked what he will envision. The first grateful dead concert being when he's able to safely return discussion about what going to be like that first time when we get to be dead show we get to see all our heads you can. How choose out how happy everybody's gonna be. We can take in three minutes since abate. You know what sold they're gonna play. I and when they break into it just the overwhelming outpouring of love and joy whole perhaps this there will be nothing but tears when the band takes the stage again. No joke like. I'm getting chills. Just talking about it because when you hear somebody genuinely let their guard down and tell you how they feel about something they love so much. It's really cool. It's being able to connect on. Finally chris is the man who's done so much with his life. What keeps them going. Where does bill.

He's evolved to be more interesting. I remember watching those. Mba on nbc games with bill walton and marv albert as a kid. Bill was nothing compared to what he is now. Penetration jumpers in transition whereas the defensive resistant for minnesota walton. Was the guy in a suit and tie on nbc for several years. Kevin garnett is thirty six in the nba. Free throw attempts. That's not good enough now. He's the when there isn't a pandemic going on. He's showing up at basketball games in grateful dead shirts and he's embraced everything that he probably had to bury for a very long time. Congo line coming from our free gave receptionist vicky driving that train leading the haredi onto the court. This was so much fun. We've done to do a really good job all the time. But he wants to do his way and his way is to have fun key. Eight a birthday candle. That was let off of a cupcake. He just swallowed the flame home during broadcast. Take a bite out of it. While it's lit ostade about the face for a lot of viewers. They want the nuts and bolts of a pick and roll offense or how you trap bill. Walton doesn't offer much of that bill walton wants to find a correlation between a slam. Dunk and the majesty of the grand canyon. He wants to see a perfect rotation for an open corner. Three and somehow relate that to a grateful dead concert imagination. It's not work. It's taking an idea of building a now synchronicity. What did you learn how to ucla. Or is that prior to your though. I learned that at my i did and i think the most fascinating part of this whole thing to me is that there are subsets of the internet. That either eight bill love. Bill are want to know what he's on and what he's on his life.

"Teacher by profession that that was his true love in life. The baseball was his favorite sport as a player basketball was his best sport. You know this is a guy who grew up on a farm without electricity without plumbing. With a three hole outhouse. On the edge of the property in central indiana and coach wooden went on to become the first great basketball player when he was at martinsville high school in martinsville indiana while the arena sat maybe four thousand high school basketball Big arenas for high school. In the state of indiana there would be tens of thousands of extra people outside trying to get into these contracts. It was very much like the grateful dead tours where there's just so many people who wanted. But there's only limited seating capacity and then john wooden. His life changed because he had gotten hurt. He was on a semi professional barnstorming team after his stellar years at purdue and this bit he he could no longer play basketball and he so he went and became a high school teacher and It he and his wife nell who was his high school sweetheart. The only girl he he ever had is for and they had two children and he needed a job and he was in the navy during world war two although he remained stateside and then he was in a position where he had to he had to get out there and make some money so he became an english teacher in dayton kentucky just over the river from gosh. Cincinnati northern kentucky. It is a was the english teacher but couldn't make enough money doing that. Thirty five hundred dollars was his salary so he worked out a deal with the school principal. That if he was the athletic director for the high school the baseball coach and the basketball coach. They would pay him an extra fifteen hundred dollars and so for that five thousand dollars coach at nail. They figured they could make it. And they did and he was there two years before going nine years up to south bend central on the edge of the campus of notre dame. And then he was two years at indiana state teachers college. I'm a collegiate level. Where larry bird eventually went to indiana state college. They dropped the teachers part and then coach warden. A simple twist of fate came to california in one thousand nine hundred forty eight and the world has never the same again and bill. We're talking to bill walton. Obviously here we. We spent a lot of time on this program. On footballers you know and the saving national championship has been compared to one of the greatest dynasties ever winning winning six out of the last twelve years but but ucla won ten out of twelve. You were you were on the team. Where the streak ended. I believe it was your senior year. Losing nc state. It was smart but it was march twenty third nineteen seventy four in greensboro north carolina. Ninety two eighty seven in double overtime. Not that i remember the date. But no coach i remember the idea of bill walton playing for people that are about to hear this. They're going to have a hard time believing there was a consolation game then and your last game in college was in a consolation. Game was it not. Yes which i wanted. No part of i played and not flying for the third place game so they ultimately a couple years. After that. you know. I had a big confrontation with john wooden. I argued with constantly. Paul and he would listen and he had pose. This is yet. His english teacher pose where he would rest his chin on the thumb of his hand and then put his finger over his par slips and he would listen he would look and then finally he would have had enough and so he would roll his eyes waivers hands and he would say you know bill. It's all fine and good that you think this way. But i'm the coach here and while we've enjoyed having you we're going to miss you. And as soon as he said i and so for these forty three years. I kept trying to change his mind and i could never do it. And so he he had created this remarkable culture. And we're over that twelve year spent bear in mind that he was there at. Ucla for fifteen years where they did not win. The championship did not qualify regularly for the ncaa tournament and they were handled. Often regularly. by pete newell up at cow turned the fifties into the sixty s and then arizona state with joe caldwell was the last team that beat them in the ncaa play offs in nineteen sixty three but from that game on ucla. One thirty eight consecutive ncaa tournament games but coach wooden. He never talked really about basketball. And he never talked about winning lucic. He talked about your personal character. The dynamism of your personality pyramid successes two sets of threes seven point creed the endless maximum that he would use an doubtedly to convince you of the correctness of his path forward..

"Plus what to expect on the court? That's ESPN daily listeners subscribe wherever you get your podcast for all the latest headlines and information. Tune the sportscenter on ESPN radio all throughout the day so mls in the NBA, are right near each other Mike Ryan was just telling me and again. The proof that money has access mls players if they want an MRI machine, they need to go to the local hospital. The NBA's not sharing their MRI machine, so they have to leave the bubble. And then they have to quarantine for three days because the NBA doesn't want anyone using their MRI machine. Like Mike starting to come around that Sir. Zach Lowe is with us now. Low Post podcast. If you want your playoff, basketball covered well we do a pretty good time a pretty good job around here covering basketball with an authority with a series of authorities during this particular time and Zach Lowe is at the top of the list, so let. Why don't you throw your? Theory Zach Lowe? First your your cockamamie theory, go ahead and and just float this theory of yours. That would be better. Just make it short plays the one where I'm keeping an eye on the bubble. One pick one and make it short talk quickly. Zach I am keeping an eye on his NBA bubble on his NBA playoff. Because to me, I'm not certain yet. If this is going to feel like winning an NBA championship, because one second beverly's there the next second he's gone. There's no going on the road with a big game six. You know with thirty thousand screaming fans, and therefore I'm GonNa keep a very close eye on the legitimacy. She sank. Is this you making it. A Quick Junior Zach feels the same way is a historian of the game. Maybe the best we have. Are you viewing this as a traditional I still am hopeful. I've said from the beginning that all the asterix talk and there's been a lot of it and I get why for all the reasons you just said and yeah, all these people leaving and coming back is going to create some timing issues but I also feel like you know we may get past the first round into the second round, and like the public interest may be so so immense, because no one has anything else to watch that we may look at this in the end is like it's kind of a badge of honor to go neutral site. No fans living in a bubble. Around you and come out after a four-month layoff and win the championship. It's GonNa. Be Weird. It's going to be different and yeah, if there's an outbreak if people are leaving and quarantining, the whole thing is screwy. Yeah, there's going to be an ashtray accessible, but if they can keep it kind of the way, it's running now. I think there's a decent chance we. We come out, and this becomes a championship to be proud of different, but to be proud of but fair to say it's something you're keeping an eye on right Oh. A follow up well. It's my job, my job to keep an eye on it and you do a great job of it. Are you in the bubble? Are you going to be in the bubble? I am as of now not in the bubble I. AM at home with my family and I will look into maybe going to the bubble later, but I am not in the Oh. You're keeping an eye on the bubble then. Stu Gods also says it's a bad look at the NBA is getting all this access to testing while people all over Florida die without access the test. I mean I I. Don't disagree I, mean I think I think honestly, if right now. The NBA just had euro positive tests in this round to testing right if they could keep that under control I think there's single biggest obstacle to seeing this way through completion is if that crisis that you just mentioned? Get so bad that just from a PR, an ethical stance it becomes untenable for the NBA to keep going, but again that's if they can keep this bubble intact, and obviously someone could still leave and come back with the virus or guests are going to come in after the first round, so that's up for debate to. Where's that line? Where are you putting the line where it would get so bad in America in Florida such a bad look that the NBA after pouring all of this money into this as an never mind. I honestly I don't know I. Don't know where the exact line is I. Keep Reading. People are waiting. What are people waiting in Florida now six seven days is what is the latest? I've read sometimes a little bit longer. Sometimes a little bit shorter. I honestly think we it's it's going to it. Will probably public pressure for medical officials saying okay, let's look deeper at how the NBA getting these tests. Are they taking them from people right now? There's not agreement USA Today Disorder Great Story About this. There's no agreement among epidemiologists and other experts that this is really an issue. Issue yet because of how the NBA getting its pest that they're that they're not taking them. Necessarily from the general public others are saying well, there are still limited supplies and materials, and all that so I. I think it would take a little bit more public consensus from medical experts. What do you make Zach, Lowe, again the low post podcast you want to check it out to get to all your basketball. Information of James Harden saying those who downplay his game quote maybe when I'm retired. Maybe when I'm done. Maybe when I'm gone, you all will understand he feels. Criminally underappreciated because none of us like to watch that style of basketball. I get where he's coming from in that I don't I don't think it's insane. I'm not necessarily saying I agree with it but I don't think it's insane to make the argument that he's the greatest offensive player ever his step back. Three is an absolutely revolutionary shot that completely changed the entire NBA and completely changed the rockets that said. You know you guys told me what is James Harden and signature playoff molding. Signature a playoff positive moment right now. It's probably twenty twelve against the spurs when he was still in Oklahoma City. For whatever reason he's had a couple of bad moments with Houston and like the way, the series have gone the way. The Games that a lot of rockets games in the playoffs had been blowout either way like he just.

"Wonderful appearances on our show which we all very much enjoy. Bill Walton is on the latest episode of Stupidity. Talking to Frank. Kellyanne if you want to support something that Bill Walton cares about bill. Walton cares about people bike for humanity. Dot Com is where you can go is hosting an intergalactic bike for humanity event to benefit victims of the corona virus and healthcare workers. Tomorrow night before we get to that though bill and thank you again for joining us. Would you please be kind enough to tell us what happens to US after we die? I'm not sure Dan. I haven't tried that yet and I thought I was going to die. And then I was afraid I was gonNA live. And then this is what I was going to be stuck with. And those are terrible places to be and while I've been flummoxed since my last appearance on your show about what is life now we start with death today and I choose life and I when I was going through my spine challenges and maladies failure and collapse which was an ongoing thing but really came to a head on February. Twenty four thousand eight. Not that I remember the date I was. I thought it was going to die and then I wanted to die and then I said Oh my gosh I'm GonNa live and this is what I'm stuck with and so then I got better and so I've spent the rest of my life the last eleven years since my spine surgery which was February. Eight two thousand nine trying everything. I can to maximize that life and so win win. You face death as I have your forever changed and you and you lose a lot of fear now. Fear is a very real thing and I still have it particularly when I come on this show because I'm a stutter. And learning how to speak is my greatest accomplishment in life and your worst nightmare but it is never easy whether it's a television show whether it's a corporate event whether it's speaking to anyone anywhere at anytime and so now as I tried to overcome my fears. I understand that the surest way to to get out of that space because right now everybody I talked to is terrified about covert nineteen and this is the most serious and daunting opponent that I have ever faced and I'm healthy. Imagine what it's like if if if you're food insecure if your health is precarious to begin with and all the different things that were were faced with. But I do know that as you. I don't WanNa die but at some point it is gonNA come and I don't know how it's going to come but you know everything we do. Everything has risk has uncertainty. Has they that real chance of absolute failure. But I intend to to go trying. I am always going to do whatever I can to to keep it going because all I ever wanted in life was more and so now I have a situation where I am healthy and so I'm doing everything I can to keep it going. Sustainability in all aspects of my life and and other people's as well people who. I'm responsible for but also the people who were part of our our community. Our community is humanity. And so that's why I do what I do. And that's why I try my absolute best to figure out what life is and then what happens on the other side. The best the best thing I read was Timothy Egan Timothy Egan. One of my all time favorites his most recent book pilgrimage to eternity. Where a lot of the things that that you ask you want to talk about. He addresses and it is a fabulous fabulous book. That covers literally every topic. That I have interesting now. Did that answer any part of your question? Only about half of it. I was hoping for about twice as much but you can help him. How humanity with the intergalactic bike for humanity event to benefit victims of Corona virus and healthcare workers? It's tomorrow if you want more information. We love talking to this guy for that. Very reason right there go to bike four humanity dot com. You mentioned something very serious though. You said in so much pain that you wanted to die that were you were with surgery with my spine failure and collapse you know. I spent half my adult life in the hospital. All my adult life in chronic constant pain until my spine surgery and but the the early part of that time was spent in joint and bone pain which is completely different.

When you're Mike McCarthy has you noticed with me and these zooms the closer you get the skinnier you get but I think what do you think when Jerry Jones when you see his setup and you see cliff Kingsbury who set up what he thinks sack Taylor was thinking about Zack? Taylor was thinking about his. Savage was so sad it really was it was also so Cincinnati. There's something about certain markets that Jacksonville has this grayness to.

Tony Kahn the son of Shad. Khan put out a photo from cosmetic Khan and they seem to have a pretty nice regal setup over there but look back to Zack Taylor for his second.

Yes what is the point of sending a step and repeat? Yes if the camera is off to the side and we see the whole at such a good point they the bengals put so little effort into what they were doing yesterday and it won't matter around for Mike Brown. He was opening up the wallet. He thought he was not draft. That's right he's going to his coach and he's saying look coach. I'M GONNA go to Kinko's over here and wait till you see all these bengals emblems I put behind you. And then we're GonNa put a camera nearby so that people can see that they're just a bunch of emblems behind you that we're not using as our backdrop to make you look impressive.

"I talk with Ted Robinson. He has podcast for Youtube. And I said you know what? Let's just talk between ourselves all. Take the audio you take the audio. We could both use it for our own purposes. So this is a fun discussion. You know. Ted Of course from his longtime working tennis on. Nbc USA Tennis Channel often alongside. John McEnroe great friend of the sport. Great broadcaster journalist the sport little backstory about ten years. Ago Ted Rope me into joining him on a segment. We call passing shots for tennis channel. Then Nathan tennis gentle. This essentially is my intro to Tennis on TV. Luckily he covered for my for my amateur habits. We have revised passing shots. Hopefully it's a little better than it was in in two thousand eight or whatever when we debuted this. But this is ted in T- Ten and I are talking here and it's a number of tennis topics. Ted is in northern California. I am hold up on the East Coast. We Talk About Tennis. We asked the question. Does this break benefit anyone? What is tennis? Look like when we return. Is there such a thing normalcy? What is the role of society in a pandemic where we didn't go that far but A lot of fun tennis talk with Ted Robinson and here. We are all right. Let's so we're GONNA try to keep this mayor John. I had the one of those people from the very beginning when the rolling gap. So the ED T. said we're moving. I was my first reaction. Was that's awesome. Somebody is actually taking a proactive step to give something positive. I understand the means. Were not necessarily the best the end though. I think it was well worth it. Yeah I'm Kinda with you. I mean this is one of the four pillars of the sport. And everybody's saying well. There was a breach of etiquette. What about the communication? Could you imagine what would have happened if the F. T. had gone through these channels and asked all of the events that it conflicted with if they might be okay there would be threats of Litigation? There would be board meetings. There would be conference calls. They just said you know what? We're the big dog. We're putting up fifty million dollars in prizemoney. Two hundred fifty six players are going to get fifty grand. If they don't win a point we think the players are gonNA play. Here's our date deal with it and I get it. I don't think this was particularly healthy to tennis in the long term. I understand why people are upset but also I understand from their perspective. They're one of the four biggest events and they've got a right to wield a little bit of power. Well he means we're great we also though. I think we've all been around the French Roland Garros and Fritz Federation enough to know. They NECESSARILY CARE. They just do what they want to understand that that people's feelings of these are extraordinary times. They they do what they do and they do it more so when they have whatever how many hundreds of million dollars of debt service on on a new roof and they do it when they don't have insurance unlike Wimbledon where they don't get any sort of recompense if they don't hold the event I get it I mean we we can talk about Means versus ends and we can talk about process versus outcome. But I understand why did with did. I reminded I say this to you. I think you've read the story for the years. That and it was the early twenty tens I forget which year but Joe Vision. Doll ended up playing the final into Monday. So on Friday of that final weekend it was about six hundred percent chance of rain on Sunday. And you saw that was probably gonna be joking reaching the dollar. Appoint where you thought they could easily take five hours to play so NBC sort of gently a little bit of my father with our great phrase. John McGuinness producer Think about bumping up the star time because they start at three basically three ten I ball which gives you six hours to play five hours a grueling larger fair and maybe WANNA bump it up and started a couple of hours of REC- hits rain delay. No we cannot interfere with lunch so many of the high end sponsors spend any they promote the final day lunch for your day higher very highly successful shafts planks was menus. We do not wrestlers lunch. I always joke that the media Cafeteria Roland. Garros has its paige day and they have a wine steward and they have different chief selection of in your Houston media dieting. Usually being you know you're you're eating soup with their hands in the you know the meadowlands. If the media dining has their own pyeho chef you can only imagine the dining options for the people that have Spent tens of thousands of dollars for the courtside seats but no lunches sacred which is also the review. No this lunches. That's also why they say I can't believe this it's a grand slam. Semifinal in the stands are only half packed those tickets have been sold and those people are on the ground. They just have a fork in one hand in a night and the other and they'll get to the tennis when they finish their last declare and of course. I joke final. They ended up getting burned by the way the Dow Stock Dazzling. It's not play that day but the referee to stop late Dawson. I'm out and in cost everybody in the cost us a lot of money to pay for everybody's flies to change in extra day but across the federation allowed light right to reopen the grounds the next day to two thousand one. Wimbledon I was told was one of the pats at the club. Now getting certainly they can absorb this. There's a million ounce to real the Nicole on Monday with zero revenue coming in to play raft refereed. Amici's explain what's interesting about all this including this whole discussion we've been having about closed-door events where you just hold the events for for TV and not for fans in the stands this has really been an interesting referendum on how much do these events and these leagues Value TV and media. How much do they value sponsors? How much they value common fans. And how much do they value the sweets? And if appeasing the guys who are buying your sweets me more than TV. I I can see why they would renew it the next thing. I mean what's interesting? I this is other rumor so I WANNA informal setting and I hope this won't be used against the the rumor I've heard a few times now. Is that the US Open. A really are hell bent on playing the event this year. They've even look into alternative dates in one of the big holdups is they've got to do right by. Espn AND IS ESPN want the US Open? Deep in the fall when they have all their college football. They've got Monday night football they don't And I think the. Usda has got to figure out. How much do they want to put on this event in how much they willing to do it even if it means pissing off their biggest TV partners you? John that's by next passing shot and the point is you just touched on. I think every sport is going through this. How do we come back? I think it's imperative for chance to come back with competition as soon as they can't sake safely's the obvious caveat here but safely meaning there may not be for a very limited fans but competition. And I'm coming this John Lewis standpoint of players ranked and we can all week each throw a dart and say seventy five hundred below. I know you've already touched on this on. Tv lied about this but those players and by the way there is sorting teams physios trainers administrators the Chiro bars. The administrators of the tourists broadcast entities around the world. All sorts of lamb chops alive. And I stayed. It's imperative for tennis when safe to have competition even if it means competition with limited X. over to play devil's advocate there. I mean I I I agree with you but the one thing I've heard is is the counter to that is look. You're talking about athletes from all over the world from different countries with different health. Standards you're talking about T as you say teams and Physios and journalists and tournaments to have an even if you have a closed door scenario and even if you don't have doubles juniors you're still talking about hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people walking around the grounds given what we know about these spread rates and given what we know about how many fatalities result from these rates. If they're a thousand people at a major which is a conservative. That's pretty low estimate given their two hundred fifty six players in the May draw a thousand people. You're still probably likely to have a few fatalities Do we do. We risk that it. What do we do for a global sport where Western Europe might be on the man but other parts of the world might be behind? Do we say we're GONNA have the US Open but if you're from India Iran I'm just making up countries but if you're from five countries you can't play. Is that fair to still hold an event L. Rasiah and I think this is what's going on hold is this is my dead and company. Has FOR WITH BILL? Walton took me to see the dead New Year's Eve Senator San Francisco and I think everybody should have to add. Lorries is what I'm saying. I think whenever we come at everybody's GonNa be tested right and you're gonNA have to have a badge. The crucial so. I think that's GonNa be the answer at how this plays out. I'm researcher Techni- Martha but I believe that's how it's going after before you have any competition whether it's domestic or international status everybody's GonNa have to have some badges

Andrew Luck retirement: Here's hoping he finds peace and fulfillment in whatever is next to come

"Colts quarterback Andrew luck retiring played six seasons in the NFL he missed all of the twenty seventeen season made one A. F. C. championship games the forty four time pro bowler with zero Super Bowl appearances and there are some people as expected Joe on social media and elsewhere that are calling into like a botched I think he's a disappointment I think that's fair to say but I don't think you can call a guy who was predominately injured and then played well when he was healthy Abbas injure looks kind of like a bill Walton to me now I guess bill Walton did win a couple of championships including one with the Celtics when he was coming off the bench but he had his career defined by injuries I think that's more lock then putting him in that Ryan leaf Johnny Manziel category which I just don't think it's fair at all no no no no no I. V. kebab that would they they got to an AFC championship game he made pro bowls as you mentioned and if you can't shake the injury bug well that's a completely separate topic if you want to call it a disappointment you want to call it one of the great what ifs in sports not just football but just sports you know sometimes I always wonder what would have looked like if Ken Griffey junior could have stayed healthy throughout his entire career in baseball those I think are fair conversations but this business that he is some sort of a bust com on people let's step away from the Twitter machine for a little bit let's get away for that to think this through a little bit before we start talking that noise you know that that were just pops like it's an evocative word it's you have an emotional reaction when you hear it but I I do think that it's disappointing I I think he's one of the most hyped quarterbacks to ever come into the league and to see him with zero Super Bowl appearances on his resume at least for now I keep reminding myself tonight Joe that Andrew luck story may not be quite done here mom because you know twenty nine years old whenever you retire like rob Gronkowski retires similar age you know not not that much older than and you lock in everyone says the same thing just wait until November in ground pool plug himself back into the New England Patriots in here we go so I would not be shocked to see a lot get healthy and come back but tonight certainly he signed it sounded pretty resigned to the S. and like he had given it some serious thought and I imagine I can only imagine how the colts organization feels you know after preparing for a season where they thought they were going to be Superbowl contenders with one of the top G. M. as in the league in Chris Ballard all of a sudden they have Jacoby per set as their starting quarterback after luck made the announcement colts owner Jim Irsay gave his reaction to Andrew luck's retirement right now we're just thankful about what Anders meant to this city I know a lot of a lot of range of emotions go through our fans and and that's a a natural thing that we can all relate to it was something obviously that we are hoping that might be something that that could have went a different direction but if he had a file is hard and and that's what he did and so again we have nothing but gratitude and thankfulness for for the blood sweat and tears you spill the as number twelve and part of our hearts broken and I

"I'm he convinced foot black to let him take out the lineup car to home plate so he did that and that's normally just kind of like a ceremonial ammonia thing that you give to like season ticket holders or whatever to make them happy and they just go they handed out say shake hands with the empires and they had back now but walton decided to have three to four minute conversation nation with umpires delaying the start of the game because but walton just didn't seem to want to leave the field bill alternate bill walton's bill walton time time i saw him giving he was giving pound fists to the umpires. Just bill walton grabs a hold of you and starts talking. You're gonna be four minutes late. I had bill walton on stupidity. I didn't ask him a single question. He just rambled for thirty seven consecutive minutes. He's not making that up who found the guy that does his job for him. The best because just opened a microphone microphone and he took a steam bath while bill walton was yam ring and a sauna and then came back thirty seven minutes later and said e._s._p._n. Give amy race. I just did my job. They are very well thirty seven minutes of bill walton. That's what those umpires got engulfed. How much was the game delayed by. I four or five minutes yeah like four or five minutes. I mean it's baseball game. Who cares whatever it's same think they're on. They're on relatively tight schedules for when they start with their television spot. I think the white sox have that seven eleven deal where games are supposed to start at seven eleven at sponsored by seven record and all right just wall out there hammering emory who's gonna stop bill walton though are used to from he could have delayed that game an hour and a half and i don't think anyone would have stopped him to you like who's gonna tell built. Listen we gotta. We gotta start it. Who's it going to be joe. West is going to usher walton off the field angel hernandez out. Thanks so are you with me on this as miami guys angel hernandez <music>. Are you guys with me on the idea that he's a blight on our people angel. Angel hernandez is viewed as the personification of incompetence and umpiring hiring kept in his job just because he's got a strong union and i believe he's bad for hispanics there. I said it it's been festering festering within me for about a decade there. I said it he's he's embarrassing. All of us by being out there and living in pembroke pine is a bit harsh. I don't think it's too hard. Did you feel better. I think i don't feel better because he's still out there umping as a blight on my people but if you're gonna have a worst umpire right why not be hispanic no. Everyone thinks he's terrible. The name angel hernandez hernandez is as synonymous with incompetence as gods thanks i i have a bone to pick with people that take out empires officials. You know how hard that is and they're right. Almost all the time like you only remember the times that they're wrong right and these cameras cameras that have a showing everything that it's like listen. The guy came off the base for a split second. He was safe and it's like a gimmicky though you held the tire and he's please all right baseball players the the hitters if you get hit three out of ten times which is thirty percents accessory. You're a hall of famer. Imagine if thirty percent success rate is what the empires that is what angel hernandez the success rate is. That's what he aspires to. Why do they call it a bona pick. Where did that come from. I'm on why is it called a bone to pick. There's a mean bringing everything to a crashing halt again. Go sit in the penalty..

"Cody. The eight takes an active role and there was a popular segment somehow against all odds popular segment that was on last week's mystery crate. We present the loss crate <hes> the lost tapes of that and on this episode of mystery crate. There's some trademark alison billy banter and i'm a big fan of what stupidity does with the weekend observations reunion. It happens occasionally. That's always a good show and that's unsupervised any this week. Yeah we had a lot of fun and the most popular episode we've done of stupidity is the studio what game with the golic's and it's really you know we have hankers area or frank kellyanne though when they host the show and it just who knows their dad better who knows their son better so the next two weeks yeah i'll be doing it as dan pointed out with chris phil simms versus me and my dad and then greg chris cody versus me and my dad and the questions are funny billy. What happened with the bill walton what happened how how did he go about delaying a padres rockies game so bill walton is interesting and last night the playing the rockies and it was grateful dead night so naturally they had bill walton there and this is all according to sports illustrated so bill walton at one point i believe was playing the bongos and a tribute band. The grateful dead of course for the game is played with the dead before actually well. He was there and he was involved in every it. It seems like it was more bill walton night than anything yesterday because after bill walton played the bongos bill walton threw out the first pitch and that didn't go so well so then bill walton decided but walton was gonna throw out a second pitch and they allowed him because he's bill walton so in most circumstances that would be the end right not the case when it's bill walton grateful dead night the walton. I guess is friends with bud black. Who's talking about black..

"Then I'd say, hey, I think we're in good shape here. But when you're only I mean, come on, your UCLA doubt. It's a UCLA team that was down nineteen or a few games ago on one and down nine with a minute left against Oregon in the first matchup and won the game. So please please now growl at the UCLA especially with Bill Walton on the call moving along. If he won't be calling this game. You'll get the the number one crew on this one as far as the SPN goes number four. I think it's on ESPN number four Duke at number five North Carolina might be a CBS game. We're going to call the tar heels here in in. In this one a four point home favourite, which is a huge line move from where it was in the first meeting where AGM myself couple of best bet winters on the tar heels. What was that number plus nine nine and a half? I think he might have. Yeah. So numbers even got up there some closing numbers, whereas high as ten so in this won the rematch, of course, without Zion, North Carolina, a four point home favourite, and yes, indeed, they just agreed on the last game. And maybe they continue to compare notes prior to the podcast for this one not one but two vast bets on this game any music drop. No, no meal, by the way, one one with dry land. I'm comfortable with my own skin. You blow it up, bro. All right. You've lost them it up. I don't need that. I don't need that. I don't need that pressure in my life. But just so, you know sleeping. I don't share notes before the show. Okay. I mean, I I in fact, I actually forgot to copy him in my podcast notes to us. So he had no idea. What I was picking. I had no idea what he was picking. But we both like the tar heels here minus four I I don't think that you're gonna see much different from what we saw last game. And it's it's not that you know, I I don't think that you've got a significantly better team with North Carolina. But without Zay on. I think that you've just got a much deeper much more complete team in North Carolina comes into this matchup. They this is their chance to sweep Duke for the first time since two thousand eight nine this game. Could put this came could potentially decide who's going to get a one seed. I I can't imagine that Duke loses this game and still. Finds a way to a one seat. I think that's going to be very difficult don't honor if he's left for them. Yeah. After a fifteen and eight against the spread start Duke two and five in their last seven ATS North Carolina sixteen eight and three as a favorite in eighteen and nine against the spread overall..

Super Bowl 2019: Pregame coverage before Patriots vs. Rams

"The game, of course, is a big part of it. But also there are other sort of story lines beyond the the Rams and the patriots in a couple of them. There are interesting to me is I want to start Myron with with with gronk. He's kind of had a resurgence a little bit here in the playoffs starting to see a little bit of the gronk of bold wrestlemainia is the first Sunday in April. I'm of the belief that I'm going to see grog make his debut in the WWE it wrestlemainia and then his time in football. Is over. After today. Do you agree with that? And do you think that whatever happened today win or lose could have any effect either way? Well, I think that makes a lot of sense excuse me, especially because you're talking about a guy who can probably get millions of dollars on a pretty limited. Wrestling scheduled Cadillac around. Arousing Brock Leser, like it's not like the old days where he's going to have to wrestle three hundred days out of the year. This guy's going to get paid to show up on special events and make millions. He's talked so much about how much money he saved throughout his career. He's talked about not wanting to play too long. I don't know if today affects anything because he's a first ballot hall of Famer whether he wins or loses today, he's got a bunch of money in the Bank. And I think he could be the next rock in. In. I think he could be that. He's got a personality. You're not a wrestling guy. He's not the rock rock. Am wrestling. He could be that. Well, rock started out as what rocky my via. He was fighting from the family name. And then he emerged as his own way. I can't broadcast that personality in the WWE. We'll promote him. I think he could become a superstar who eventually goes in the movies and forgets football. All right. I I'm not going to argue with the wrestling part of it. But because you're wrong. But Dan, do you think this is it for I? Yeah, I do. But I do believe that tonight's result swings that okay? I can see if they lose tonight especially in close ballgame Brady convincing gronk for another year. Come back for another year. Don't forget is AO win the first round tackled. It's not part of this team. He'll be back. Like, we give me one more run. Gronk I can see that happening. Now, if they win I do believe that he calls it a career as he rightfully shit. Don't take don't. Remember, the comments he made this last week of him talking about the wear and tear, and how much it weighs on you. Mentally, and how hard it is to get hurt and have to practice, and how difficult it that difficult of a thing that is now to say that he's the next rock is absolutely outrageous. Like the row how first of all the rock is the rock was a guy that went into wrestling because that was the the the means to an end that was the vehicle. News and his family had been. He was going to you second of all the rock is incredibly business savvy and Hollywood savvy works like a dog like this is a guy. When it comes to football. Yes. When it comes to training for football. Yes. But he doesn't. I mean, the rock literally works like a dog. I need more talking about the rotten. Now. I saw the rock when he was in survivor series as rocky my via no one knew he wasn't good. And he was trying to figure out who he would be gronk could come in in the social media air, which rocketed the rock didn't come in in the social media era. All I'm saying is gronk could be a superstar in wrestling. Well, let me add gronk is only he's only twenty nine it feels like he's been around forever damnit. He's only twenty nine now he's taking a lot of hits bodies like a forty year old guy. But I guess what I'm saying is listen to countdown to kickoff on ESPN radio you've been through this process and Myron, and I haven't the process to decide you know, what that's it. Right. That's a hard process for every athlete. No matter the level, whether you're elite or not is it in part of it. I think is do I have something to go. Do do you think? I mean, we we talk about wrestling and a lot of people may roll their eyes. But it is something I know he can do if he wants whether it can be great or not he can do it is that talked to me about the process of saying I'm walking away. And and how how how players go through that mindset. Yeah. I mean for for me, you know, it was a great majority of it was I don't love the crap anymore. Doesn't it feel like he doesn't either? Yeah. I mean, that's that's no you're not gonna pay. Now granted if someone was going to pay me five million dollars. I would have dealt with it again, if someone's gonna pay gronk ten or twelve million dollars, maybe, but you get you deal with the crap. Like, so many people doing their job you do with that crap. Because you still love it. You love all the things that competition the locker room, the fellas the drive to be great the work, you love all that. And then once you don't love the dealing with the crap anymore that stuff doesn't matter anymore. It's not worth it anymore. And that's when you start facing the question of do I wanna do this anymore? And it makes it completely now. When I went through my transition, I wasn't for sure. Like, I was like all right. I want to get into analysts in broadcasting get into TV TV. And I was like I'm just gonna go rather than sitter sitting around. And wait. So I knew that there was at least the opportunity there for me. Gronk scan have way more. More than I had presented to him. But if you get to that point where you're done loving, the crap that you have to deal with and there are avenues for you to go. It makes it such an easier decision in move for you to go. You know what I'm done? Here's the next Chad having those options, I do think is is huge. You will have a lot of options. And you didn't know when you quit you're going to get to do a show with Matt Jones in my. But then sometimes I have earlier if I did exactly the Lord's blessing. There you are. So let's talk about the next to the players on the field. Maybe the person that has the most sort of its state today. Myron is your guy Tony Romo? I mean. I'm not sure an announcer has gotten this level of praise maybe ever like universal praise of people going Stephen Smith said is the best performance he'd ever seen from an announcer. And so the thing is that's awesome. Except you've got one more game. And I always of the opinion the most important two days in your life or the first in the last at a job. Well, the last impression he's gonna get from us is this game. Is there pressure on him to recreate the magic from two weeks ago? I think there's a ton of pressure on him to do that. And I think the problem is announcers like him who get this early praise. How many of them go down as being folks? And a lot of people don't like, you know, it's unfortunate because you start out liking guys like Tony Romo. He deserves all of this praise, but because you expect now people expect him to be some profit every game the minute. He shows any sort of flora weakness people are gonna jump onto that and start to criticize him. But I think he's facing more pressure than any announcer at a Super Bowl or any analysts had a Super Bowl that I can remember because people think he's like something we haven't seen before. And now he's going to have to deal with that pressure. Incomes care like most of the time. I'll be honest with you, Dan. I don't even know who the announcers are until I realized what network game is on. But with Romo I mean, there are prop bets on how many he's gonna call. Like, this is he is not the biggest story the game is. But you know, he's the second third or fourth. Biggest story. I think a big part of it too is like people are having a ton of fun listening to him. Torino because not only is he very good at what he does in. I've said this as a broadcaster networks you better have quarterbacks on there. Because you you've gotta be able to get people to understand the game different levels that communicated to all kinds of people. But it's the fact of he continuously telling educating people on the wise in house put it's fun. Like, you're having fun. Like John Madden was the last announcer. Who seemed like he was having as much fun as Romo, and it's it's okay. For him to talk over Jim Nance for a second. Because if you were sitting at a bar with your friends are in the living room having a beer with your friends. You talk over your buddy here in this moment. So it's not like this. You know in cookie cutter ish. Oh, we don't do that. Because it's television. But what happens if I'm saying is really good. Then I'm gonna do it. You know? And I think that there is that appreciation for for from people going like this is really good. And he's telling me stuff, that's really. Good. But also like the fact that there's really nobody else on TV sounding like him in ways. Like that like talking over Jim Nance, Jayme lake. It just seems like he's having a blast doing it. There are very few announcers who make the crossover into a personality that they matter Madden did mired. I'd say Barkley has vital. Did like there are many. And I think romo's headed groups, Dan Orlovsky will continue to be on. Would you agree with that? Yes. I think he is definitely in that group of guys where you go. You're now going to watch games because romo's attached to it doesn't matter the game because he's gonna make any game more interesting. Just because of who he is become he's become a part of the game now, and that's a good thing. Because like damn fed people. Like, I think I honestly think there are very few announcers that them just being there matters. I think John Madden. Did I think dick Vitale did Bill Walton? I think dick Vitale did. And I think I think Tony Romo is is sort of becoming like that who's going to win the game. After all this talk who actually is going to
