Hour 1: Do We Care Anymore?

"I'm loud and bold radio announcer. Who was hired to tell you about the loud and bold flavors and Tyson anytime there's chicken snacks? There boldly says it full of flavor. Thanks for listening by Tyson. NATO's chicken bold flavorful chicken's neck. This is the Dan Le Batard show with this to spot CASS. You guys want to talk about Patriots cheating all right good enthusiasm. To God's appreciate they pay you to do the talking about the Patriots cheating for years. I mean sure I'm in. Is there anything about this story because we know that it's it's not about the crime it's about the criminal. Anyone else doing this. Anyone else in sports doing this is not in any way interesting. There's only one team that can do it and get us talking about it. I have opinions number one. I believe I believe they're. They're excuse. which is that's a production team that does look ahead ahead game? We have nothing to do with that. We never see the footage. I know that a lot of people probably don't because of their history but I believe them number two. I just can't get up for another patriots cheating scandal especially when I don't think they're gonNA win the Super Bowl this year. I kind of think that this might be the end of everything. That's going on there. So when it's not really the reason further winning whether in bad form form when they can't beat them the top quarterbacks in their own conference. I'm like whatever. Try To beat the bengals however you can. They've gotten good at these scandals and responding to them like Bella. The attack is expansive. I still believe that the relationship with Brady umbrella check was damaged and this will come out. I believe years from now. It was damaged damaged by during deflategate. Bill Belichick got out in front of everybody gave the most expansive press conference. He's ever given and basically said this isn't on me. You gotta go check with Tom like just buried him. I believe that all the Garoppolo stuff everything then happened there where there are tensions that are going to get Brady gone at the end of the year as the craft sided. I did with him that it all started there and since gotten good at these scandals it was found that they didn't really do the deflate gate stuff but I always found it weird that even though they didn't there was a guy nicknamed the deflator right. It's kind of. That's kind of odd right. It's like calling me eight the killer but I've never killed anybody. Here's here's an interesting part of this. J Morrison who covers the Bengals for the athletic was detailing a two thousand fifteen story in the business insider about the first by gate scandal at. Here's a little little piece of that Of that report soon advanced gas would be sent to the Games of upcoming Patriots opponents. The film the play signals the scout would go undercover as media members of media career credentials listed under Patriots. TV or crash productions and. We're prepared with excuses of what to say. Hey they were filming if security and asked. It's exactly what just happened. I don't know maybe I shouldn't believe there I don't know but they're just not as good anymore so I don't care why. Why would the Patriots who were struggling on offense and I know they're playing the bengals but how about tape the sideline of a of a team? That has a good offense to find out what they're doing right. I just To tape the bengals sideline it just makes no sense whatsoever. Put It on Opole Do you really have to cheat to beat Andy Dalton. If you're bill belichick ask what I'm saying. So they They I do find interesting interesting. That as you look at everything that happens with the Patriots I do wonder about whether any of it ultimately will stick to them in time because you can have your displeasure with them. You cannot like them. You could believe that all they do is cheat. And that's the explanation for all their winning but as it is with vacated titles as it is with the steroid guys in baseball we can't actually go back and change any of what the history is. We can't go fix anything about the winning. So this none of this is gonNA stick to them. I guess not. It's not gonNA keep Tom Brady. Bill check from any of their appointed rounds on greatness. When this is done it's not it's not none of it not having a murderer in their huddle not deflated? Footballs not spy gate. Not that they are. The most cheating is champion of our time whether they're guilty of it or not. They've had more of these kinds of scandals than any team in the sport. And I don't believe it's got any enduring staying power these scandal. It doesn't it's to peripheral in the case of Barry Bonds You can look at steroids and say all right. That's why he hit that. Many home runs in the case of the Patriots Bellichik and Brady are all time greats. No no matter. What's happening on the sideline with spy gate and stuff like that? It's purple you can't tie it directly to great they've been in in my view I'm Reading up on all old deflategate I forgot what a classic this was. He's defense for Jim. McNally calling himself. The deflator was that he was actually referencing his weight loss. And not deflating. What an unfortunate coincidence I was? Just GonNa ask you when you presented it like what other things could have been referencing with deflategate. Other than football. Giving his job was to handle the football. Also Jim McNally was calling himself the deflator so he was really proud. This actually this textbook expert Vegan. Let me just say that you guys don't care but you don't really care. I can't get anybody to care about Greg. I have a question for you. Why do you think they do it if it's not affecting affecting their legacy if it's not giving them an advantage why do they believe that? This is an innocent mistake by somebody who was dumb. I believe what they are guilty of here is not realize is the stupidity. The of not realizing that anything they do that is outside. The rule is going to get them more criticism than any team in sport. Oh absolutely yeah they do it because Bella check is obsessed with getting any edge. He can but he doesn't need the edge and deflate gate perfect example. He's accused of deflating. Footballs in a game. That they won. What was it thirty eight to seven or something other than that? It was crazy. How the Astros amazing for them? How cycles Russia but at this point? But is this going to eat up the news stream because because I do believe. There's a bit of yawning indifference grading on a patriots curve scale. It's a Tuesday. Nobody wants to talk about that. Eagles giant's game and we don't have anything els in terms of football content and team they were recording was the bengals. That's that's a big part of it and part. If the same thing happened the the week before they play the chiefs. It's a it's a much bigger story but also like how low will you stoop if you're a recording the bengals this is just if the allegations are true you then this is obviously something that happens every week I I remember asking the late Wayne. High Zanga who owned all of south Florida at one point multiple teams As toys I remember asking him. What's the lowest denomination of money that you would bend down to pick up off the floor? And he said a penny because Bella checks greedy that way L. A.. Check out like he doesn't want to leave a scent on the ground now one sent. It's it is odd that none of you guys can get up for this story. You guys couldn't get up Russia. That is a huge banned from two Olympics. Cheating in a science lab in ways that was just as grotesquely overt as anyone in the history of cheater. Do you remember what happened in the World Cup. How the eliminated Spain? It was Spain in passing the bowl specifically tire them out and they would not get could not be tired was a jumped off the screen. The greatest cardio that we In professional athletics and yet we still don't care maybe people just assume that Russia was cheating that the Patriots have always been cheating. And maybe maybe that's why people just don't care as much I mean. I certainly was under both those assumptions I was. I think that you can inundate people with scandal. And this is is one of the rare places where they're actually apply perspective and say. This one wasn't as bad as the others. If if it's any other team but New England as you suggested I don't think it's even newsworthy. I think you accept the the explanation would be one in a local reporters notes in a newspaper newspaper saying the the team has been fine for you know if someone finds out about it inadvertently for inadvertently You know breaking the rules in involving filming of coaching the the browns. I know the front office sustained suspensions for communicating from the Front Office on. What was going on the sideline and this is something that's happening in advance? So there's at least some sort of precedent for their being suspensions for this kind of behavior if it is indeed true and the Patriots Football Operation Staff has something to do with it right.

He has now been hidden by the Miami Herald behind a paywall. If you wash if you wish to get greg cody to fifty years of writing sports in a way. That's fairly obvious. And at the end of his career a little bit lazy. You GO TO HERALD DOT com. Tell People Greg Cody. Tell people how they can help us. Sustain your career with a couple of bucks worth of subscription because you are now being measured by how many subscriptions you're right and we're lowering the man where they're they're coming in.

If you click on any of my columns you're gonna hit a paywall that will tell you exactly how to subscribe very simple process Thirty bucks you know you spend more than that in a carton of cigarettes each week so I spend more than that in on coffee in one week thirty bucks so it's a bargain. Why skeptical? Billy what are you doing why. I'm wondering if when I do that and I go to that pay walk. You get credit for that so like is there a special Promo Code Greg or something that lets people know. Hey we're coming here for Greg. Cody Dave Barry or something. Yeah I think everything is quantified. So if you do click on something that POPs up when my column appears I get credit for what if you subscribe trying to reach my column off of your link is what you're yes right. Okay correct you would prefer they. Do this in your heyday. Right and your prime. I mean this is really. You're buying the tail end of his career. Out of pity is really what you're doing. You don't think this is about getting the sports writing. This is basically a panhandling laying on three hundred radio stations. Nationwide is actually Greg on the rise. Dan I know you're here in the local our security but for those who weren't here Greg's getting a podcast on the Herald and it's also apparently apparently gonna be behind this paywall. So if you get greg now not only do you get his articles. You get his future. podcast said Billy which is theme is T. B. D.. I think at this point also. How many? How many years have you been working in journalism? How close are we to fifty? Fifty is going to be in twenty twenty two. I think okay so. We're very close to like the Steiner Sports Marianne cash. Grab right with you I have no idea with your memorabilia. Going to be moving on. He's been left behind. He doesn't even understand what you're talking about memorabilia. I I've got another theory on what's going along with the Patriots but lest we forget okay. I just want you guys to understand because this controversy is not going to resonate like all the rest and my theory on this is different. Aren't than everything you guys said in the first segment but before we get to that understand that when the patriots do stuff like this no matter how minor it is. They sent this older. Our high school science books head. Wells was paid five million dollars to investigate. What was it? PSI or like pressure in football and it was paid five million dollars for that. Investigators really took his time with it and it was ridiculous and we were bored a but it was much different than this one today and we didn't really know what then either would be the effect of doing that but we enjoyed guessing. We didn't know the effect of what happened with spy. I guess we didn't know how much it was. Actually helping them but we continued to obsess about it in a way. That had some hyperventilation in it. No one more so than Chris Mad Dog Russo. Who produced one of the greatest sounds in the history of radio? Just just raging. Mount Mount Mad dog erupts here over the smallest. The details wasn't even mad at Tom. Brady was mad at his dad. Shut the hell up. Shut up shut your son dot now kipp frigging mouths shut frame gay. KPI shut up. Stay Low shut the hell up frame gate. You'll be you you kidding me. Come on a guy shaded folks that's honest fragmented Tom. Brady's Oh man now who has lived in the bubble you know and has has lived under the scenario words Kid's been phenomenal player or this time and now he's trying to make excuses always trying to disparage the guy who spent two hundred and forty six titles right about it shut up. Put that guy on if he's got the guts to talk tough question. Go ahead put a set on. Let's see would he ask say don't Hide USA Today come on come on talk shows they come on now come on right now. Ask Me say that Daddy Buddy scientists and it's a mad dog sports radio. I gathered three times where he almost ran out of three times. And you thought he was done he was gonna be was just gonNA expire fall on the floor and then he roads back up to Yeltsin more Tom. Brady's dad telling him to shut up. Stay low and come on the radio. Here's my theory on why this one's not going to echo so in any way whatsoever it's not as much fun when the Patriots come out and say yeah we did it. It was a mistake but we did it. Yeah we did that. That's something that happened all the other times we can ask questions. What were you hiding? I know there's something suspicious there this time. Innocent mistake are bad so it's more fun to wonder if it's in the shadow. Yes they're doing something when they cop to it like this is actually what I I would advise them in public relation. Stay Low A.. It's what I've learned with my marriage anytime I'm arguing with my wife. Just say okay. Sorry even if like in this case they actually are admitting it but it just helps it. Just it cuts the ten. She's really angry me but if I'm just like you know what you're right I'm sorry she's like I can't be mad anymore. Are Your admitting it same gate at.

We often Wander around here and are surprised when billion Chris in the back row haven't seen movies that we have assumed that they've seen so Chris Billy any interest in what is coming out now which is a new ghostbusters. Here's movie Are you interested in. Ghosts must ghostbusters remake. We've talked before about not only has Hollywood run out of ideas but Hollywood is at least run out of ideas in part because we pay to watch the same nostalgic crap. We will go back. They do it this way because it pays to do it this way or it has before streaming services attacked the movie industry so Chris helped me understand ghostbusters. Does it do anything for you. It doesn't do much that's for me but then I saw Paul Rudd was going to be in it and that does a lot for me so I was like all in and then sell the trailer. Now I'm a little lesson than I was so I don't know I may see see this a couple of years like on TV. I don't know that this is going to be like one of those on demands that I say you know what five ninety nine sure. To your point though ghostbusters adjusters was a little before my time like when it was really popular. I was aware of it. I've seen it but it never really resonated with me where it was one of my all time favorites the trail mix. It looked like a drama instead of a comedy with what the original ghostbusters. NFC was conceptually. Now I've seen the trailer. It is a very serious trailer strikingly mainly so which is how it should be by the way because they're dealing with ghosts exact very serious topic. It was great pretty light hearted the first time around. I think I can buy in the trailer. Just wasn't that good for me but I do like that. It's Jason Ripen Directing it because his father directed the original so that school. And this is not exactly a reboot. This is a direct sequel. Ghosts hosts have disappeared since ghostbusters. To and Paul Rudd was trying to explain to kids. That man ghost used to be everywhere New York City. It was like the walking dead dead but thanks to the ghostbusters. We haven't seen a ghost since Ivan Reitman was the dad's name how `Bout Jason Carve out his own thing that I don't watch Michael Jordan Junior. Play basketball you know what I mean. We try that UCF. What happened with that? I've told you on Netflix. You guys should check out. It's just limited series so far but it's something called movies that made us and they do something on ghostbusters and it's basically an hour long documentary on a bunch of stuff that you may not have known the original original ghostbusters was supposed to be Aykroyd. Belushi and Eddie Murphy was supposed to be the the three but then Belushi died and it sabotaged That part of the project. I Jason Reitman has done a lot on his own. He's one and Golden Globe screenplay writing he directed Juno and up in the air which is really good film. This one seems to have a stranger things. Stranger things vibe to it where the kids seem to be the one saving the day. So I don't know about that Chris is right though like if ghosts of overtaken the city how playing with slammer. How about enough funny business? Let's just go capture these ghosts and that's it. We don't need all of the funding bill. Murray cracking jokes. There's some serious things going. Oh we do I want Murray I would see the sequel. If Murray was in it I learned. Get rid of those ghosts. I mean literally sent out He would get the script every every year Aykroyd would send him. Aykroyd family is actually fascinated by actual ghosts. That's how the project began. Because he wrote something and it wasn't what the what the movie ended it up becoming but he wrote something because of that fascination it was such a major massive hit that movie two two hundred and twenty nine million dollars in the United States in what in what eighty eighty four nineteen eighty-four. They allowed a four hundred foot. Four hundred foot marshmallow man to walk around New York and just reek havoc. How about what do your job? Don't let the marshmallow man get that big toast busters. You only walked a couple blocks now. They didn't do that much except stepping on a church. You understand how scared I was marshmallows for the longest time because that movie scared of marshmallows. The ghost classes would have done their job. I wouldn't get her marshmallows marshmallow man look like the Michelin man to me. He really you know that the original ghostbusters while at least surviving ones because part of the storyline is that this kid from stranger things. Oddly enough. He's Egan's grandson Herald Ramos. who was in the original ghostbusters movies? He's passed away and all the other surviving ghostbusters had agreed to be in this film. That's right bill. Murray finally didn't sending that facts. Yeah because Bill Murray the story I was beginning to tell you guys is I think Ramos Maybe it was Aykroyd. Somebody kept sending him sequels to ghostbusters and he would immediately put them in a shredder and when asked about it would say nobody wants to to see a bunch of old fat guys. Running around chasing goes they've been trying to get Bill Murray to do it. I wonder why he signed up to do this. One and how's it going to do is. Is it one of those movies. Because we've said before young people make everything popular and I do believe that Chris and Billy's era is the youngest on the show But is is high end right. Twenty year olds would be the ones that would you'd want to get to the theater. You're are you going to get a lot of sixty year olds. Are you GonNa get look look at what's happening in baseball right now. Have you seen this always happens in baseball. Because baseball hates change baseball would be fine with like women not voting. They just want everything to stay the same because baseball is the fan base in baseball objected to the wildcard objected to anything that resembles change and now they've they put a Nike swoosh on the baseball uniform. It reminded me about ten years ago. Maybe more than that Spiderman one of the Spiderman movies wanted to put ads on the basis and was willing to give give a ton of money just to be overhead when someone was stealing second base. And I think Seelig was the commissioner at the time. And he's like we will not cheapen our product that way but now they've put they. They put the Nike swoosh on the Front of uniforms and baseball fans are man and they're all going to go see ghostbusters. Those those are the people who are going to go see this correct. WHO's GonNa go see this movie? This movie GonNa do well as not a comedy getting nostalgic from Nineteen eighty-four. I think you'll get six year olds but you also get thirty year olds who experienced this movie with their parents and it was multigenerational that way it had action figures it had cartoons when I was a little kid I love the ghostbusters busters. I think you'll see a lot of parents right now of adolescence. And perhaps even CH- teenagers trying to bond with their children over movie they thought was dope. And we'll be declined and I think my ex exactly right like read worked for me and it also worked for my kid because I got to finally share the rocky experience. She didn't WanNa see the original rocky she. I did want to seek read by the way Aykroyd Bill. Murray they give you the Cagey vets in this movie is that it's the young guys gotta go to them to figure out how to capture the goes. I think from what I can tell. It sets up quite nicely because this is all happening in a small town and if the original surviving ghostbusters members are there. It would seem as though this is all building up for Paul Rudd to sort of start a new ghostbusters joined the original three and then establish his new corps for. This'll make a ton of money. People are stupid anything it could say anything and goes plus designed people go watch. Well I guess not all ghostbusters. People would go to launch but this is specific one women right the one. They had a remake with women and that one and didn't do very well for slapstick. This one seems said. I know you're saying dumb. People would like it but they're not going for some people with this trailer they're really playing up nostalgia and it's oddly serious. I haven't seen the trailer but if you're going to sell a movie called ghostbusters it has to be kid friendly. It has to be Funny in some way if it's going to be wildly successful the original wasn't exactly kid friendly so knows about this but it was fun and it was funny. I don't believe the Greg Cody opinions on movies. Should count put it on the poll. I don't know anything you just don't know the last film that you saw in theatres was swing vote. Starring may or may not be true. But you know the movie. I'm really excited about Richard Jewel. And I can talk about that for ten minutes. Let's talk about Richard Jewel. There's huge scandal going going on. WHOSE PAPER REPORT Yes? Is it possible. Greg was just ahead of everyone and realized that theaters were going to die. I think no one goes to theaters anymore. I I was at the vanguard of that trend quite frankly the timing is right. Look it up don't matter created. GMC ghostbusters did you see you know. Yeah I did I enjoyed it should lessen you went to a movie theater. The Theater was actually called the vanguard. There was only one movie play goes by the way Bill Murray. We don't even get started on this over him. I'm over bill. Murray what Yeah Bill Murray. We don't need to talk about this now. 'cause go on too long but if Bill Murray came in interrupted my kickball game. I'd be like get get Outta here guy like I don't want to take with you all right. Put It on the poll. At Lebatardshow Bill Murray overrated. Yes or no and also put on the poll. Should Good Greg. Cody be allowed to have an opinion in free America about the movie. Because I don't think he should. I just don't think he's qualified defied. He's just ignorant everything he says is wrong wrong. You're wrong if you own a company. Good comeback you know how hard it is to find the right employees. That's why you need Ziprecruiter Ziprecruiter Dot. You just got outwitted by. Look at me. Look look look at who just outsmarted you. Someone Somebody Trust.

They smoked Jacksonville. A whole lot of people should be fired in Jacksonville incidentally that team went to the AFC championship and should have beaten ballot. Check on the road. Had the game won lost the call not unlike the one that went to against against the Patriots on Sunday that they're whimpering about that prevented them from getting to the Super Bowl and now every time you look up. They're the only team in the league getting blown out up by thirty. They're the only one that's happening to every damn week since Nick foles came back. It doesn't matter who they're playing and so this back and forth with Philip rivers was interesting because we all know Philip. Philip rivers is a jerk. He likes he likes Bothering people and his talkative for a quarterback you know that I liked the anarchist. Yes I like the talkers and what happened with Janaka. Goku and Jacksonville's gotta be very frustrated with the reason the sound was interesting in Gakuen. Okay the reason the sound what is interesting. Is that a fine. Yeah it's a pretty tough one dollar. Yeah tough name say tomato. I mean he put himself out there though. uh-huh let's say dried and to me I. I'll take a dollar off if you make the bravery so he knocks over. He Knocks Philip Rivers over and and Philip rivers on the play is throwing a sewing a little pass to toews for ninety yards. And as you you know the plays over and in God kway picks up Philip rivers off the ground and Philip rivers gets up and starts yelling ninety yard yard touchdown and then gets right next to the guy right next to his ear and a looks like a thirty six year old child enjoying rubbing it in the face ace of a playground kid because he gets right next to them and says ninety yard touchdown and so and got quake comes up to him and hits him on the back and just taps on the back and says hey. Don't just don't do that in the year. Just don't do that right in my ear. And Philip rivers comes back with That is what I do that is what I do. That's who I I will do it by your ear. That is what I do and It's an unusual thing because then the softness falls from GEICO and he says how quaint I'll I'll Holler at you after the game a Holler at you after. Ah pronunciations getting worse than three dollars though so is that what the finest now by the way I think. He helped him up after he was on the ground. Philip rivers lent him a hand. Yes I mentioned that we weren't share too busy finding me extra money. You're too busy dragging me and Mike is it. Just say we were debating whether or not important wanting to run with it specifically. If you mentioned it I wasn't listening at the time. I would have run that six dollars for you blaming and somebody else and Philip rivers doesn't get a whole lot of the jerk card. Philip rivers like that was unkind to a guy who was being gentle with him now. That's True Philip rivers gets up news the school that Greg Cody on the ESPN radio. I'm alone and bold radio announcer. Who was hired to tell you about the loud and bold flavors and Tyson any any ties? Let's check in snacks. There boldly said and full of flavor. Thanks for listening by Tyson. Chicken bold flavorful chicken's necks.

When you're next in line, give you more ways to save time making your MVP haircut experience feel more like prime time sport clips. It's good to be a guy. Happy. Thanksgiving everybody. Tip. Loss spending all these plates back here. That's why you heard happy Thanksgiving from the. Radio, did you guys you guys doing what me and Mike we're doing? Where did you feel bad for Dan and were you waiting for the funny in the funniest thing from sports weekend? I was just trying to look up the guy's name to help him out because he seemed like he was struggling. For you we weren't helping it ought. That's why we were laughing about it here. I had two minutes to go right on funniest thing there were two minutes left and all I needed was some help from somebody somebody to give me on I. saw it anything. But all my concern, God's who are doing is figuring out how to undercut me like it was a tennis match between them. You should have watched them I'm looking for the help I'm looking somebody give me a name somebody me here, but they're all both of them are just they're playing ping pong next to me trying to get the joke neither one of them speak microphone to the audience both of them. Trying, back and forth with each other. Settled it on gets. The. Least Way. Too Lacy's resorted. To be there. Just like. Volley back and forth guess you had to be there was all the help you gave all I was processing was either dead is going to make this funny at some point. Thirty seconds I had thirty seconds left to talk. Rap. Either House. Up maybe there's a ghost Johnson joke. Swiss Person My. As he had to be there. Yes I. I had the thunder forward with. I don't think the audience has any idea how often we're filibustering each other just so that someone else. To. New. The filibuster that's all I. Let you guys were paying back and forth looking for the joke, the Best Subaru. Had to be there I was stalling for you guys to come up with a good joke and what you came up with was. Mike is so right because I don't think I've said that since the mid eighties. Finding this. To be there, the show started with you thinking, Hey, wouldn't it be funny if we ignore the big sports story of the day on the National Show Mission Accomplished Yeah we kind of did didn't mention Prescott Center on the national. I go maybe once maybe we gave it as much attention as get up dead. I'm getting reports Legler did open get up and they quickly like gave them a Billion Kane before we turned our attention to Rex Ryan what do you think? Oh. So so get up is disputing our claim that they apparently opened up the block with it and very quickly pivoted to Dak Prescott, and then the rest of the show was our criticism of get up is unfair somebody heard it and somebody has corrected us It was unfair wasn't the entire show they devoted about four minutes to the NBA Championship and the rest of the show was was Dak Prescott. Hits on the network today though I mean right now they're debating does lebrons for title, make him the Goat On this network. I mean I'm also seeing a list of early power rankings for next year in the heater number nine. Are we doing here? On do you see the odds in the NBA title? Did you see that one? Team to one. Yeah. The head of the the Denver. Nuggets though that's encouraging. Serious thank you I mean, that's that's a team that's been tobacco. Western. Conference finals I think that's that's company. Are we behind the the sixers? SPN PUT. Put out there way too early power rankings and they have Miami behind the sixers you seconds he was in Safed on what Doc rivers I don't Doc rivers and all the great examples. He has a bringing together locker rooms I think. I, wonder if Miami's title is going to be sort of diminish or discredited because they did get the aid of the bubble in terms of you help a good shooting team with sight lines they did get some aid. It is possible did but they didn't really shoot well in that in that series against Boston right now it's also a young team though I wonder if tyler hero has some of those games if he's on the road doing that with fans in I Some Tyler Heroes a whole lot better. Yes. Twain this. He's gotTa stop of those pick sixes. It was like James Winston out there. Every turnover was just four point swing Maga-. So Lakers are are the favorite clippers, second bucks third, but the heat or and the nets are ahead of the heat. Okay or those same they have the same odds as as the heat. So that's pretty good copy the heat ahead of the Nuggets Rockets Raptors Mavericks I mean, that's pretty good. Basically, what you're hearing is what are the he could do from here are they gonna add or does their team just take another step with logical progression of a twenty year old tyler hero he was doing some amazing things for twenty. So frustrated as I personally was getting with his final series. It's pretty amazing for that kid to be doing that at twenty players make gigantic leaps from like twenty, two, twenty, three. You're seeing Bam out of bio for him to be doing that at twenty really high ceiling for that kid you have to Dan don't you have to pour les this into into something right you have this Guy Jimmy Butler that turned to star that thought was a star that people might WanNa play with our when talking about his leadership and you have to young guys in hero and and Bam, and then you have this great coach great culture that been talking about. For three months I have to think that a big tough. You have to parlay this into something I would think I. I marvel at the fact that I don't know Billy Chris I don't know how you guys experience yesterday's Dolphin Game Right but. The course of our time doing this radio show in this market damn. Near twenty years for a long time like we all have this shift. From under US for the first ten years of this damn radio show it was Dolphin Mondays. Dolphin Mondays Dolphin Mondays and basketball very much at least in our little a petri dish. Took this town away as talk topics as soon as Lebron got here for the last decade, the Miami Heat have been that talk topic but yesterday the Miami Dolphins. Who people are saying have a bright future they've got young players. Their coaches said to be somebody actually somebody from the ballot check tree who isn't incompetent. They have a quarterback that everyone's waiting to see. They have draft picks they have the Texans draft pick next year I wonder two of them right? The first and second round Texas picks, and so how does this work with you guys yesterday because? The. Ratings were not good for the basketball finals. National Football is King Sport Football. You do not go up against football where was it that Adam silver was quoted as saying he was surprised by how bad I saw someone to Ingram reporting on what he was feeling about NC a direct quote. This was done by some sort of journalists. But you can't go up against football and so what we've seen shift in this market over our time has been the the he taking like once upon a time. The Miami Dolphins winning that game in San Francisco have been a good chunk of our show. No doubt. No doubt I mean we used to have our arguments but I used to tell you a Mondays we should take phone calls to do nothing but dolphins that's that's how big it was but the heat of taking it over. This was according to the New York Post Adams according to sources, Adam Silver's still surprised at the low audience Lebron James Chasing his fourth title at age thirty five sober is aiming for next year's NBA finals and not compete in the crowded sports month of October, the season is going to be delayed somewhat we still don't actually have a start date for benchmarks free agency or the start of the season. So they are going to be later it's not going to be June again, the NBA ESA figure out. To avoid what happened this year, which is we're going against football. Mondays. After a champion in scranton not getting any attention, we're getting four minutes of Tim legler before we move onto Dak for two hours. Yeah. I. Feel like it's just a weird sports counter that we're never gonNA see again I feel like that win by the dolphins yesterday's a lot bigger deal if the heat aren't in the finals, the same night so it's it's just an odd. Situation. But it's your bigger point until like to a gets in and becomes if he's good good, it's just gonNA keep being heat down like I. Think the dolphins have to like be legitimately good and back for that to swing back towards the dolphins, this might take a little bit I. Think it's GonNa take another year to correct itself Chris I. Think we might be seeing an NBA finals in August next year not against football but in all. Right. Well, first of all, it's already delayed. They can't just go right back into the season it's going to be delayed normally the season we'll be starting right about now. So they're gonNA have to do something because the next season is going to be on us in short order and and still in a bubble. Yeah, and I don't blame them for not having a return date. It's like if you've only been eating eggs for breakfast every day of your life and buy like day fifty, I don't WanNa see eggs again. So naturally, they're not gonNA WANNA talk about being in this bubble a potentially another NBA GONNA be in a bubble until a vaccine. Aren't they? I mean you would have to think there's talks about four bubbles but keep in mind like were. There other teams in the NBA teams that didn't even make it to that bubble. Like Atlanta with John Collins trae young, you're losing valuable time in their development. These guys need to start playing. This is when they took four months off before the season came back. I. Spoke the John Collins he told me, this is the longest layoff I've ever had without competitive basketball. You have really young teams that are building that were bad. This season the need to be out there playing I read read four bubbles also West Coast Midwest South and northeast. So it's GonNa be, interesting? To see how the NBA does this movie vote for bubbles at also read Eastern Conference vs Eastern Conference no long does like no law traveling the West will play the West the east will play the East in those bubbles they might have to reduce the number of games to rework some of these contracts right? Like just that is one way to solve it. If you actually want viewership if you don't think you`re Going to have it vaccine by next June or July or going I, guess August is the latest you could go. Right? August is the absolute drop dead date I mean they can do vaccine in have traveled the players themselves are vaccinated basketball. As we know with full sadie stadiums, you got imagine first responders. There's going to be a couple of team tears before Joe Sports Fan gets a vaccine that's being mass produced. Any final words on the heat season before before we eulogize them for the for the final time. Is Everyone. Got It out of their system a lot of people tuned in today to to see the Miami shows tears to feel the tears and you guys, Araya. Proud of our second place Not, quite bottom feeders they weren't the bottom feeders that the marlins were but now it's over for South Florida are most we can. Can we give it up for school. Choice for. seriously. Get the credit for running the big. Weighed before let's give it to. Tony let's call again. second-placed feel good. I would say this is the best second has ever felt ever ever I'm hoping does some reporting on this I am curious as to how Pat Riley? WHO's ultra competitive? Who would you would never think that? Pat Riley would be fine with second place but even he I wonder if he got caught up in the godfather of this. Especially after game five. To seeing. Like no, he gave spell a hug after that if he was allowed to and said. He wasn't allowed mess job Chris. Chris, what are you text me Friday night all day. Friday you will just happy to be there. What'd you text me Friday after that game that I want blood and I'm back what do you think Riley was feeling but he's the one who said there's winning and misery I. Think the greatest misery is falling just short at the end I think the greatest misery might be falling just short he's going to amend that. Because this was. This was incredible to get two games. Honestly I think the getting two games considering how bad of a mismatch it was against the Lakers and the Games from Lebron. James Overcome, they took one of these games without Bam out of bio remember in game already that's how he thinks. I think he he thinks because of the injuries they let one get away because Obama obamacare and I think he thinks it Bam Gore one, hundred percent they went to be He'd homer Guy I look back to game four and it's just such a missed opportunity for the team that game was there for the taking and if they just had better players out there That's the losers lament, right? That's how he got hurt. US Yeah No I. I in this case, Dan, two of your three best players getting hurt and one of them being your leading score. JUMPED OFF TV didn't it Dan they had to work so hard to just get a game down to the wire. You think Riley. Thinks he won that series if he was coaching. Yes Let's, ask him get him on tomorrow Dan text them get him on March. They would've won the series if he was coaching Bill I. It's a better coach Riley or SPO-. Wow. There it is. With Riley no one no patronizing Donnas has some court minutes what I gave was of hand. I was Kinda hoping to see you his has them but I don't think I think he might find that patronizing you ever leave that badge. Assistant coach or something doesn't really need to leave the bench. This is a cool way to circumvent coaching to one. Howard sorta fill that role you see career you see Lebron the second huggy. gave the someone after winning the title is you did yeah that. Yeah. I don't know who is I didn't see. I didn't see Jimmy Butler congratulating because I just saw the video of him walking back there. The the angles weren't great I actually. It was Kinda. Cool. They should've stayed on Anthony Davis while he went to like pound like the Larry O'Brien poster that they had up there I thought that was a pretty cool moment for him. It's like they have like I don't know I'm being very cynical when I was watching that celebration it's felt like, Anthony Davis and Lebron we're trying to out like out out, celebrate each other. Well, they were trying to show right? They would rather shows normal title. Yeah. Like Anthony Davis that thing he's like so mu I'm being cynical he was probably moved I'm sorry no doubt. It's gotTA. Feel great to be all of them but you know Lebron's being on the I promise promises made promises kept. Kept his promise last year was a bit of a disaster but all those people you know Dusted themselves off and they were clearly the best team in the NBA. What would happen to all those pre produced Lebron commercials if the heat to win the finals. They like as soon as he wins the title, there's like seven back to back commercials of him winning the title. It's just like that's a lot of production that went into that and then if I guess they just assume they're going to win. It goes to the same place that all the other championship t shirts and. There's some other bizarro world that like other champions have won and people have a completely distorted reality and like. No But He's lost six of them guys not their first Rodeo strip. Lebron I feel. So you're saying there's a, there's a Jimmy Butler Championship ultra commercial right now in country like some other countries somewhere far away it's. Somebody has a New England undefeated championship shirt. There's a lot of weird stuff out Tony Jimmy, Beller Silla sneaker free agent right his deal with Jordan expired or or they came to an early termination. You've still wearing Jordan's during the playoffs but everyone just assumed that he was going to be like a way of Wade Guy. But now he's a he's an demand sneaker guy I don't really know of Jimmy Butler cells Shuzo is he is he a signature athlete? With a signature shoe no never he can get that Jordan brand. You know boost of wearing retro some stuff. He'll never come out the signature sneaker, but he can do the cool thing of having retro coups a retrofit player exclusive to him. Yeah. He had like sort of Chris Paul thing where it was a Jordan shoe but with his whenever she yeah, really crappy graphic for every athlete has a logo I found out.

Postgame Show: The NBA Will Resume

"We have some breaking news here where the NBA players have decided to resume their season. I thought all along Stu gods that the best way for them to bring attention to this while not sabotaging their effort is to do it for a couple of games and bring the attention and keep the platform and the people on the other side of this will now criticize them Stu gods, where's your conviction? Right the money he came back for the money but the point was made the got her attention and I actually believe that they're not sabotaging anything by getting our attention. And then going back to play and then going back to answering questions the way they want to while staying in the bubble and making the point they made a statement period games were lost because they want racial justice they did, and there's a couple of things to kind of keep in mind as teams lose. They'll be able to go back out into the public in effect change it'd be part of these protests. However, they deem necessary. You WanNa, be part of this stuff but as the playoffs continuing role on here, the platform for the guys for the teams that remain. In, all likelihood Lebron Kawai Jaanus guys like that. It only gets more magnified. It gets bigger as we roll on here through the play I'd like to see additional reporting to see how we got to hear from the Lakers and the clippers last night voting to end the season and you don this has lem talking to a group of players in saying I don't know how we can have a season without the Lakers and Clippers Added to find out to got and I have found the leadership on this to be extraordinary, Adam silver again, living up to his reputation stugotz because I believe without knowing anything this news is just breaking. Now my guess is that he got in there as an advocate as an ally as a partner he got in there and explain to them the ramifications while also being on their side in a way that substantive. So they can. Trust him. They don't think he's playing an angle like the NFL players always think about NFL leadership they think he's on their side and he works with them. My I would love to hear the reporting on what kind of peacemaking Adam silver did to quiet the emotions of this and make these very strong men not feel like they were being asked to dance and smile and entertain for an America that has some discomfort around what it. Is that they were protests and Lebron leaving the meeting the Lakers and clippers following him that's impactful I think he knows how impactful that is but it's not like he left out of the bubble because that would truly in the postseason. So there was absolutely room for negotiation after he left the meeting and the teams remained in the bubble, they spent the night there. That's no small thing you know easy task by the way you. Just pointed out with silver has to do because you have to be able. There's some salesmanship in there and what I mean by that is you have to be able to convey to your players Hey I am with you I am on your side I support whatever it is. You Do I. Hope You guys know that. But here are the financial ramifications for the things you worked very hard but were as applied on that he's just. Heard this break, the the current agreement, they hold their all sorts of business ramifications and you're talking about sales. But what I have seen again, and again in the relationship between silver and these players is because he listens to them because he considers their humanity that the way to reach them would be guys if we now postpone this season and you guys go into this fight, we will lose this platform rain will lose this money. We will lose a lot of different things we will lose some of our customer base that doesn't want to have. To be denied, it's entertainment and also though I think the biggest thing if I. had to guess that Adam silver was telling them is this moment can happen in the bubble with you guys actually affecting change by giving the people their games back but showing them hey, we were gonNA take them. But we have decided not to take them for reasons, X. Y.. Z. That we will continue to have soaking every playoff game. You're watching where it's not an abnormal thing at all of a sudden see black lives matter on your court. So my guess is that they will use this platform in a way that tries to affect more change. There will be critics on every side as there is with anything in the way of leadership, but I ask you again to examine. The crisis that Adam silver found himself in the middle of and I ask you to reexamine. How this sport. With Science, coming at US and learning and discovery through a totally unexpected and unprecedented time got into a bubble and successfully completed its season. Successfully resumed its season, and then how we went from there to yet another crisis that made it seem like the season again was in peril and I don't know how he slalom course that. But I look forward to seeing the reporting on what the conversations were like between Adam silver and his partner. Lebron James Lebron James had the all-star scheduled changed when registering a complaint and my guess is that Lebron does not return to that bubble given what he has seen. His role as an activist take on in America if not a persuaded by an Adam silver leader who had an agenda. And yet trust him so much that he returns to the bubble even though it suits Adam silver's agenda to get everybody back quiet and playing again, and we started recording post game show thirty, six seconds afterwards sent out the tweet. So news is still trickling in today's playoff games have been postponed. So I, imagine they're still trying to formulate the full plan and that's a lot of trust extended to Adam silver who I think has earned that trust they're trying to figure out when they're going to actually resume play and probably map out exactly what they're going to do with the platform. That's even louder about what's going on right? Now. In the world I liked it though those details as well because we're doing this were I'm watching sports sportscenter as we're doing this and there is footage now obviously, we can't hear what's being said, but it is just Adam silver. Lebron James and Yoenis in a hallway talking to each other like I want to hear the steps that we're taking the conversation details of the conversations that were had leading up to this decision we'll have to inform you 'cause you're not gonna read anything no no, you'll tell me though yeah. Yeah, it's not like you're gonNA actually check in with Ramona Shelburne or woge or any of these things. Some reading where's that say we were promised today I wrote two paragraphs I can tell you that today probably not the day for a mess as also probably not the day for mvm Magnus Ver Magnusson but we went forward with it anyway. So I mean, we SORTA had to choose Two Action Bronson meeting his hero or the. Billy Chris Tony Roy, how did you feel about today's show? There was not nearly enough shipping container in today's show although I was glad we were we were able to talk to Carl Douglas together Roy. How did you feel about today show? Well, I wasn't here mostly the show because my internet has been down. So you telling me Dan okay? Well that is fairly shocking to me that we learn after the show that you were a silent, not being around because of your connection as usually are when you are around with a successful connection. So I will go elsewhere with my question billy how did you feel about today's show good show today Dan top for the week I'd say thank you billy. One of my favorite moments was just be drowning totally drowning in the world's strongest man in Action Bronson the ceiling of his car and you just moving away from your microphone. Jiggling with laughter that made your headsets almost come off because you were laughing in my face so much wasn't so much you. The problem is with what was going on there is that we're on zoom, right? So like Magnus Ver Magnusson and action. Braun. CID could probably also see me laughing when things are not going great actions, right? Like, Duck. Outta the camera frame and just like try to keep it to myself because. It was hilarious. What was going on? It was great. I didn't want them to think I was laughing at them because laughing and no one knows what you laughing at. I had to do that when Dan asked Magnus about. Actions Music and it was just very clear that action Magnus had very little knowledge of. The Boards Sin Song I hate it. I was laughing at. Checkout of some of his other work and. Tony you're still laughing ed the awkwardness that we. That we through what the American audience today, I think one of the best parts Dan and not to dunk on you for a second was when you ask that Magnus Vermont. About Latin. grammys. Did you think the song had a Latin beat? Is. that. Is that look Mary under that I'm GonNa, I'M GONNA I'm GonNa give you guys tag. In the audience. Okay. A sneak peek into everything that was happening here. Okay. I get surprised all of a sudden on my zoom by a world's strongest man while I'm doing a radio show that you may have noticed had some delicate subject matter in it. So I want you guys to imagine from my perspective. Okay. Is The guy who is supposed to be talking and leading this pirate ship to know where I'm sitting here talking about things that are societally echoing and then boom nineteen ninety-five appears giant muscles in my screen and I just immediately start talking. To him out of nowhere, I wasn't expecting to be talking to him then not just nineteen ninety-five like midnight late night nineteen, ninety try, and so I am discovering this person here I haven't had any time to do any of the show prep that would explain to me hey, Action Bronson, and Magnus Magnusson are going to be together because they're meeting for the first time. So you heard my genuine surprise learning that on air because I had no information in front of me at that moment that a world's strongest man appeared and then action Bronson's technology didn't work. And my producers were all laughing in corners trying not to be seen by accident Bronx. Just. As, they roared with laughter and Roy was not available to me in any way because it's Internet went down. So I'm searching the premises for where do I get help here. Honest to God if you asked me right then Chris Hey dan what's going on here I'm like clearly, Magnus Ver Magnusson is hosting the Latin. I'd no idea what was happening here? There was nothing but chaos and my producer door following under the. Thing. The options are laugh or find a way to fly up to cell phone satellite and fixed the cellphones thing I can't do that. So I'M GONNA laugh. We're trying to bring positivity to you in this moment of panic. That's what we're trying to do we're helping. You guys did scurry out of the screed and even I after the MVP m I kinda left the studio. Tony was laughing. So art and at some point did had to feel like he was just doing his show magnets. Listen I, need the audience to see this part of it because I don't think the audience knows this part of it, but Mike and certainly know this part of it very often what ends up happening on the air? Is Me looking at Stugatz saying MVM? And it's just the last drop in a bucket. So I lash out at him for no good reason just because nobody knows, hey, look the producers have fallen out of the screen laughing at the awkwardness of this moment Chris. Cody does it with actual break-dancing where shoulders just make him go right Zoo and then I'm looking for help from somewhere so that I can feel less alone and what I get is. A magnet me staring the guy whose English spotty, who may be an Iceland? You're obsessed with this Iceland portion of it. I don't know where he was joining us from. We'll find out tomorrow. We Have Action Bronson again tomorrow might my supposed to know? pixelated face in a car.

Get that list a ZAP. But I was thinking. Stu Gods in that spirit because content is a bit difficult during these times of doubling down on my. Micky arison take a boy so yeah. I'm going to do this because agitated the message yesterday with this and the agitated masses think that them being agitated deterrent for me to talk about something that's during a content star time. It's you'll for you. I mean they'd whatever the agitated masses think is the medicine for whatever the deep the disease I am. You get agitated. You spray that on me and the disease metastases like so whatever that means so I have asked to got to put together to get his committee together and come up with a top ten list of people. I'm allowed to feel bad for during this. Like a rankings. I want the committee to have strength of schedule and and whatnot because over the course of the last ten days or so. There's been one segment where Mike and I walked out of my kitchen and Mike said that was a good segment and it was yesterday when we were talking about We had something in sports. First of all to sports topic that goes out into the sociology of sport. And everything that's happening around us and you had the president of the United States saying that Micky Arison the owner of the heat. A local owner had offered his cruise ships as hospitals as you see like what you see happening around the country is already crazy and it's about to get worse like I've already got friends from New York telling me that they have this virus. The healthcare system in New York is totally overwhelmed. New York doctors are wearing trash bags. Because we don't have the equipment and it feels like some of this is just getting started so we hypothesize that was not an act of altruism by Micky Arison offering his cruise ships hospitals. He's just got an enormous amount of monthly bills and if the government could pay some of them the cruise industry like a lot of industries is asking for government help. Because how could it not be right? I've got I've actually got a friend of a friend. This is how unimaginable a place that we've arrived in. I've got a friend of a friend who can't believe some of the stuff that he's saying. He's in the oil industry. Okay yeah he's sitting here saying like we can withstand some of this but we've got to think about bankruptcy for the first time soon and that's the oil business so a whole lot of people are struggling now and a lot of people yesterday. Were trying to do comparison shopping on hardships. I wasn't saying that Micky Arison -t's hard ship was worse than yours. I was saying that what's going on around ships. It's hard you know what I mean like. I wasn't I was saying that the the to me it's interesting what's happening around him because it looks like financial drowning. It does right. He's not alone. A lot of people are going through that but yes I understand. I understand your larger point but Dan what I was trying to tell you yesterday is. There's a lot of people who own businesses big and small. Who are going through this and I know what you're trying to say that it shouldn't feel differently to Micky arison than it does to the small business owner but it does because that business is all that small business owner does Micky Arison. You would think not only has the heat and the arena and all that but just has millions upon millions of dollars put away. I don't know if that's true but you would imagine it to be so k. But many of the people in our audience are arguing on behalf of. Hey we gotta keep paying the little people and there are a lot of little people that work in Miami on the cruise ship industry and there are a lot of people who work for that Miami Heat Organization and so if his money dries up. Their money's GONNA drive up. I want to backtrack for a second though. Because this isn't anything other than me talking about. What I think is interesting. A sports story that is larger than that and pointing out that something around a billionaire can be challenging. Got A number wrong yesterday by the way because I understand how this happens. We've been talking for a long time about the idea of on sports radio. The broke get really mad at the people who were allowed to make money for playing a game or you know just profiting off of the entertainment that generally surrounds them. And this is something that we've I mean good Lord. How long have we been doing that? Were right but I got some math wrong yesterday. Because I said that Steve Balmer buying the forum for four hundred million dollars represented ten percent of his worth. It's one percent of his worth one percent one percent to four hundred million dollars. Cash he He paid for the forum and it's one percent of his worth and so I get why people look at that and say and I also wondered without knowing anything about the business of the finances of that was whether he was capitalizing at a time where you know. Buy Low sell high that he was capitalized. Everyone else's panicking so he's like four hundred million dollars cash here. It is for the forum. I'm not going to get better interest rates. I'm not going to get mortgage rates. I'm not going to get better anything. Here's the cash right now. I'm going to capitalize at a time. That everyone else feels like. They're drowning a little bit. But what do you think was misunderstood about what it is that I was saying yesterday? I mean there's a long list and that's why put together with the Committee of the top ten but there's a long list of people that I think I'm not saying people don't feel bad for Micky Arison. I'm just saying on the list of people. You should be feeling bad for right now. He is way down at the very bottom of that list. And I think that's where I understand what you're trying to say. I think most people understand what it is you were trying to say but during a time like this the person they're gonNA feel badly for is the billionaire cruise line owner who also happens to own as a toy on the side and NBA. Basketball team agreed totally agree one hundred percent agreed. But I wasn't asking you to feel bad for him. I was asking you if you thought it was interesting What was happening around him. I was asking you if you thought that that would be stressful and challenging. I was asking if that was a circumstance that a lot of people would look at and say yeah no problem. I'm good or hey. There are a whole lot of people dealing with a whole lot of different kinds of stresses and if the family business that my father handed down to me and I was trying to protect for my son from one day to the next everything fell. Apart in a way that's totally unimaginable. Away that none of us could have predicted a way that nobody listening right now in America thought possible in this country. Do you find that interesting. Yes or no. Because that's the question I was asking yesterday. I don't care how many people misinterpreted or thought that I was miss communicating something. I'm not saying that your hardships living bill. Bill aren't harder than his. I'm just saying that. His hardship is also something that's hugely challenging. How could it not be with his monthly bills? I find that fascinating. That's a newspaper columnist job to find the things that are interesting. I don't care whether or not they agitate you go ahead. Just do got a fun. Confluence of events happening here around the radio show. Because if you've been listening for a long time you know that STU gods loves like Hulk Hogan to go from one end of the wrestling ring to the other with his hand cupped to his ear and in a desperate content time over the last ten days there have been precious few opportunities for him to react to the siren that goes on in his life because the siren. Is Dan loud wrong? Dance loud wrong. Ooh Spring's here sprinting. In here saying wait a minute. I take the world's easiest living paycheck to paycheck. Ardor being a billionaire slalom courses into the picture and he's like yes. Give me something to say here. So it's been so great joy spread across. You felt like that in fifteen days. We were all scared. Yes ten set the thing that I can rail against and everyone who celebrate me as a hero to a man of the people. I feel free to stay down this path. They're picking new hard path for yourself. Which makes it easy for me. I Will Slope Right Without Ski Poles by the way. Literate you I love the idea of going down a slalom course confidently without skis or sticks without anything. Just SORTA. I'M GONNA. I should start doing that. I should just finding the things that I can say. That will lead business too complicated because then you get into the economy and politics and everyone runs away from anything trump and saying so. This isn't good enough. You guys are producers. Billy Chris Roy Tony. Get to work on finding the Stances I could take as the straight man that will allow us to God's to come in here and be. Maximum cheered Stu gods during these difficult times so put together a committee here of the top ten people or top ten groups that I'm allowed to feel bad for. There's a lot of strength of schedule here. The argument isn't even because I'm not arguing that you should feel bad for anybody. I'm just saying that it's interesting. What is swirling around the Miami Heat's owners owners so you go ahead and tell me number ten on your list of God's number ten the tenth ranked group of people or person that I'm allowed to feel sorry for number ten not billionaires thought number one could have been not billion I number. One must be strong. I'm number nine. God's not millionaires number eight on the list of people. I'm allowed to feel bad for. Perhaps the three million people who lost job. This past week is a very good a very good point. I feel like number. One here is going to be awfully dark instead of funding on number number number. Seven Stu Gods Dan not people who own cruise lines. They'd have a basketball team as a toy on the side number seven. Small business owner. What their business fair enough number. Six to God's on people I'm allowed to feel bad for cliff and Bubba the two guys. Espn ORG Georgia. Get this show on the air number and the number five STU GODS. Dan Number five parents who are forced to educate their children and communicate with them. Yeah Man I know. Fights and arguments or escalating a whole lot of people are wanting to risk whatever it is the virus brings outside so they don't have to be inside with their families anymore number. Four STU gods I mean perhaps the people who've tested positive for the corona virus. There you go own my God. These next three aren't going to be very. This is going to take a dark turn here. I'm afraid so if you're just joining us and wondering what this list is to God's put together he gathered with power rankings strength of schedule and a limit on compassion and empathy throughout the world and humankind committee to put together the top ten groups. I'm allowed to feel bad for in order. The third ranked group is people who had to cancel weddings and big get togethers ingathering gathering. That is not Dan that it's not easy and I have a friend who had to do it and he said it's a complete headache. Feel bad for those people not Mickey funerals too by the way yes. Yes yeah I mean how? How brutal is that? What do you have billing for? People that have been canceled weddings and funerals and people were actually sick and perhaps but that's just the way it came out the committee. Listen speak to the committee. All right we've got two more here by the way they're only spaces here and I feel like there's some groups missing here so number two on the list of people. I'm allowed to feel bad for easy one. Dan Doctors Nurses Yeah. It's all very nice to go from one end of the ring to the other yes? They're the real heroes and finally the number one group of people that I'm allowed to feel most bad for because the Internet says says so. Is Abby my wife? We finally found consensus about something in sports. That's a good list. Sick aren't anywhere on. Are they now know? People deposited the dead. The dead aren't on there. Okay very good.

Poor Stu gods and we just put him in such a bad spot where all he's got a microphone and a bunch of faces and Chris Cody. He can't hear Chris Cody. Who's holding up a sign? Let's play charades burly. Tony Roy and Chris were trying to convey things to stu gods now playing charades. Keep near your desk at all times in case my internet goes downstairs. God's all these lists of top ten anything's you have okay. That's fair also. Here's the here's the other thing that's unfair to me. What I'm doing the sports flash.

That's all I gave out. It's all you next guy. Up is my point guard okay? So we're picking up there all right. We'll pick it up there. Just put a bookmark in it. Billy during all of that was very helpful to me helping produce me and he says that the what. I should say to you right now. In an effort to be a good producer and to help me create content that. I should come out stridently with the following opinion. Let me leave some space for this. All right you ready to got yeah. Let's leave some space for. Maybe it'll catch by itself without context or anything. You ready the people. You should really feel sorry for the healthy people if you think about it. The sick people are ruining things for everybody. A can't spread if they're laughing at you have to. You have to go from one side of the ring to the other you. I'm going to try it again from one side of the ring to the other. Just yelling at me okay. Go ahead try it again. The people you should really feel sorry for the healthy people. If you think about it the sick people are ruining things for everybody yet. You know the sick people Dan. They didn't really intend to get this. That was not their intention. They were trying to get this okay. It's not like they. They woke up one day and said. Hey you know what? Let me get the corona virus and be hooked up to a ventilator that I may or may not get I mean. That's not what they did. That's who you're gonNA feel badly for. You're gonNA feel badly for the people who aren't sick because people are sick are ruining odd. That is absurd. You should be ashamed of yourself. Pay The teachers more. I'm so we forgot yesterday. Because we're unorganized because things like the Internet drop and then we all panicked staring at each other and Chris runs into another room and writes on a sheet. Let's play charades as all of us. Drown scared and laughing at each other. We forgot yesterday to get to. Roy's nineties hockey player of the day. So that means we have two of them for you today. Let's go ahead and play. That imaging please Bristol. Hate everybody get out of the way. It's time for Roy Nineties Hockey Player of the day. Take it away. Roy Insult. He was drafted thirty. First overall. Toronto Maple leaves. He's been eight years on thirteen year career. He played six hundred thirty five games. Two hundred sixty six wins two hundred and sixty losses and five ties with thirty two shutouts. He posted a two point. Seven six dollars average nine point nine lives saved who are in the League and Nineteen Hundred Zero Average two point five zero in the season third and Karlovi and lovie voting. Today's today from the nineties. Curtis Joseph Go Judge Joe. Nine hundred forty three hundred fifty four three hundred and fifty two losses nice ties in fifty one shutouts posted two point seven nine goals against average for his career point. Nine hundred sixty two also in his nineteen year. If you remember the nineteen ninety-seven the oil is the Dallas Stars in a seventeen playoff series. Shocker amazing consistently amazing. That's to God's that it's amazing that Roy knows all of that off the top of his head. Curtis Joseph. You helped him there with a well-timed Cujo nickname. Who Joe Joseph Roy? Thank you I will try not to forget again. The Ninety s hockey player of the day I couldn't get in there with Felix the cat when it was doing Phil Fan. I wanted to ask you something. Stu Gods because I'm guessing that the audience is going to connect in some way with what it is that I'm about to say in that in Miami. The last. Tony Roma's Rib. Restaurant has closed. It no longer exists and it got me to thinking about restaurants in your lifetime and I know many of you are GonNa make the joke that nobody is hit harder by a restaurant going down than I am but restaurants that have been from your youth from a different time. That have made you sad palpably sad when you heard nostalgically. Hey that's not going to be here anymore. Because Tony Roma's is where I honest to God stugatz because we couldn't get any in anywhere at college. That's the only place that I could get some drinks because people weren't carting me so I was spending time with a piano bar guy at Tony Roma's in my friends because it was the only only place underage that I could get some drinks when I was in college and so do you have a restaurant like that. That made you sad because it's disappeared or because it ties you nostalgically to a younger time in your life. I mean I'm not certain if there's still like a random like one of these left but when I was growing up Swenson's was a big deal like you can get an Omelette. You can get a milkshake de terrific food. It was Kinda like diner type food but it was a chain any very successful one and I'm not certain there might be like one rogue store that's still open but I know it broke my heart when it closed down also white castle. I'm not certain if white castle is still have no idea but I love white castle growing up for me. The restaurants still around but you don't see many dine in Pizza Hut's anymore and there was nothing more exciting than performing well in Little League or Mike Asia just performing in Little League because I never got a hit because I got hit by a ball my ipad and it traumatized me but the pizza at the dining pizza hut with the salad bar just tastes so much better and I get so sad when I see that those go under pizza. Hut doesn't have there is a Swenson's on. Us One still. I think it looks. It looks like something out of the one thousand nine hundred eighty S or nineteen ninety S. But you're telling me that doesn't exist anymore. Very few very few it used to be commonplace. And now you gotta go to another county to find it. The sizzler is another one from my childhood. Victoria station was where we went on the big night. Stugatz on the big night. Whenever my dad's something good happened to my dad at Work Victoria station which was a train. I loved going to that train because it looked like a train. I was thirty. Six Years Old Victoria station. Stu God's how about fuckers Fahd rutgers still around I have no idea fudd ruckers was fantastic when I was you remember Roy. Rogers Roy Rogers the chicken restaurant. You don't remember those. Do you remember the Roy? Rogers Roy Rogers was a fast food chain. Dare I say okay Roy Rogers one of the all-time great chicken sandwiches of all tied. It ranks third on my list right behind Wendy Spicy. Chicken Sandwich at Burger King's original chicken sandwich about that. Chris how about you? What do you got? I think of chains that have closed. I think of Roadhouse Grill and the reason I think that is because when I was young I remember. My Dad wants to read in a leader asked entire entire life and there are no more girls. What can you tell me about that particular exchange? Do you know what it was about. Your father frightened you with his rage. Your father is a Weirdo restaurants. He's Weird. It's actually the only place where he's being wrong by bad service. I just remember it was like my entire family was his mom and Dad. My uncle is there and it was just. We were all very uncomfortable because he was notley not yelling but he was just like it was bad service but he was really rude to the waiter.

Pennzoil performance line. Billy has finished tiger king. Mike Ryan is very sad that he is finished tiger king because now he doesn't have something to watch until ozark on Friday night. Chris Cody is one episode from finishing Tiger King. Where'RE YOU STU? Gods Colin cowherd has proclaimed Tiger King overrated overrated according to Colin cowherd where are you on Tiger Kings guy? I'm with Chris Cody. I have one episode to go got to the to the final episode last night. Started it at around eleven forty five and just couldn't keep my eyes up and so all right. What is this afternoon? So put it on the poll. We'll wait until tomorrow to discuss it some more so that everyone is caught up at Lebatardshow. The documentary on Netflix Tiger King put up at Lebatardshow on twitter. Has this show ruined Tiger King for you again? I remind you that we are sort of all desperate for content that the last ten days have somehow been filled with football football. The only business in America churns along unimpeded whatsoever by a virus and pandemic football gave us plenty but in coming days and weeks my guess is we will be reviewing music we will be talking about far more obscure things on net flicks and on the Internet we do have the NFL draft coming up now. We s them football. Football remains undeterred. Man It's fairly amazing that football in all of its big sh amazing arrogant strength can just keep it moving in a way that people barely noticed. This has been A. We've been thankful for the football content. I'm telling you I'm promising you that at some point in the future if we stay quarantined for awhile. Tony's a little worried because he says he's about to gain fifteen to twenty pounds. Put that on the poll at lebatardshow please. Are you about to gain fifteen to twenty pounds? But I'm telling you during this time of content starvation as we have multiple sports networks. And we don't have sports news sports news networks but we do not have sports news. Somebody's GONNA be sent out the way that you would in the ancient times send out a prisoner or a slave to fight the lions. Somebody is going to be sent out to say. The thing wasn't yesterday it was Adam. Schefter came out. I think they prodded him with a cattle prod and got him on the set and he's like we should make the draft seven days and then he ran off at like. I'm telling you that this this is just send someone outed on. Get up to say something. It doesn't matter. That's what the team of producers at the worldwide leader should be doing right now in a lab figuring out who's the person to send out in the morning so the rest of us could talk about poor Terry Bradshaw got swallowed by that. The other Terry Bradshaw. How did Tom Brady opinion? We were all sort of interested in all of a sudden Terry Bradshaw opinion. No one more thankful and Mike Greenberg Terry Bradshaw speed. Which let me segue nicely into that. Because I wasn't able to talk about it the other day. It must be nice from the perch of two hundred twelve career touchdowns in two hundred ten career interceptions in a time before free agency. When you were able to keep your entire team together so that you could keep winning championships that you would be the quarterback that people would go to multiple time champion. Even though there were a lot of reasons for that that wouldn't put you high on the list for the reason of those championships. Were one might be at the lowest though. I mean I go. Rico stats again career. Two hundred twelve touchdowns two hundred ten interception. Everyone around him was so overwhelming and not able to leave through free agency at any point that he was able to keep the team together forever. Mulling everybody also pre salary cap. They had a defense call the steel curtain. Dan Opening Day is supposed to be today. Nope inning day. Chris Cody is calling it. We will talk to Tim. Kirkman and tickle him coming up next.

What's in your wallet? Should it be syphilis Phillips that apiece? Scoliosis Sanchez should be hemorrhoids Hanke flair and should it. Be lice Arbor. Do the Hank? Aaron when I don't want to do it. Again, I spent through it on purpose. Take sutcliffe. Oh brinson. Hey, rick. It's richardson. Oh my gosh. What did you? And I mean, what were you arguing about North Korean basketball? I heard you guys yelling at each other no argument. We were we were celebrating the rules for playing basketball in North Korea different slam. Dunks are three points nothing but net shots are four points and teams lose points when they miss free throws. How about that? I love it all of it. I love all of it. I love the idea. I was telling Billy Chris I love that idea of them losing game seven on a shot that was called the nothing but net, but then video replay shows. Oh, it just a little bit. Put it on the poll. Guillermo, would you be up for the NBA changing the rules to make dunks worth more nothing but net worth more? And what was the other rule change on free? Throw. You lose points before he throws slam dunks three points, which I love by the way. Because now you go to the Dan you go out to all the playgrounds and kids aren't practicing dunks. But they're practicing is three point shots and how far away from the basket gonna make a shot. This would bring the dunk back if it was worth three points and then four points for nothing. But nets Rudy Gobert would be the greatest three point shooter revolt on wait a minute. How old are these kids because kids for the most part can't be dunking Stu gods? So you can't be practicing dunks. If you're like four foot six I'm saying you go out to these playgrounds, right? Where the high school kids are playing kids. We're going to go to college eventually like trae young guarantee, if you want to watch him, you know, a few years ago on the playground. He was not dunking the basketball what he was doing was taking shots. I'm half court. That's what he was doing. Hassan Whiteside would have had like thirty points last night about that. I mean and go bear, right? He broke the record for most dunks season this year. He'd be the greatest three point scorer of all talk. Ray allen. That is something funny to consider the idea if I told you we're going to have a hard time explaining this years from now if if I told you, hey who broke the record who holds the record for dunks in a season Rudy go bears. Probably not where a lot of us are ending. Scott gonna fight. What you on on one thing though, you said the kids will be practicing dunks and not three pointers. But here's the thing nothing but nets count for four point part. So they'd be would they be practicing dumpster would they be practicing shooting even better? That's a good point. And what do you do with a dunk? I is that just three pointers that are nothing. But nets is that two pointers is always a role a nothing but net is is just a finger roll layup. Well, then to dunks become called three pointers because there were three points. And then there's a four pointer, which is when it doesn't touch the rim. Right. Right. And so the the play where Derek Jones junior a couple of weeks ago, he didn't quite dunk it, but he threw it down. But it went nothing but net is that seven nothing. But then I I feel like that rattled around in there. I feel like that was thrown violently to be nothing. But hypothetically, if that were nothing but net, I think it means right? Seven points. They should have a little thing that like registers the sound that the net makes a noise meter, and depending on the Christmas of that sound more points like all you know, what it could be it could be tied directly to decibels. So if it sounds loud enough, you get that many decibels where the points, ROY. You have a decent swish. Let's hear it. Do how you got. No. All right. Seven eight six four five six four eight three seven if you wanna call in with your swish sound, let's go hold on hold on. Now. I think Billy his has said before that what he likes best is the chain link sound the sound of incorrect that is very dangerous. I'm anti chainlink nets. Because you're gonna finger on I used to love it. I thought it was the coolest thing, but you cannot trust shades with that it is dangerous. I'm telling you. I'm sure more people have lost fingers that than you know, other things that would cost you finger put it on the poll have more people lost fingers in a chain link fence than in other endeavors that would cost you fingers seven eight six four five six. Thanks for nothing. Billy four eight three seven is the telephone number seven eight six. You really petered out and really petered out there. Other endeavors that cost you fingers, you can think of any right? I mean, what other things can you think of that costs kids fingers regularly? What work I would think what what is doing? Walk wars or something three things. Brown's the wanna grace bitches never. And you got three fingers are is is is shop no longer a high school class of any sorts. Don't think so I think that's only in the movies. I I don't know anyone who ever went to high school where they had like woodwork as a class. My dad, did you made a lamp actually? How long ago was that? Even the boy scouts like a pinewood dirt or you have to buy a pre made box. Now, you just hammer things together the easiest thing. Royer dad was also you're right. You're right. You're right. You're right. Right. And it's like nineteen seventy that. Right. I'm trying to think of more useless contribution to the show. Then my father made a limp in woodwork. Well, you just taught the Billy earlier. I wouldn't lamps. Yeah. Evidently roy's. Evidently, ROY grew up the hard hardscrabble times of wouldn't lamps made by your father nights. Wired it and everything. Yeah. Yeah. It worked. Yeah. No public school systems really failing us. I couldn't make a lamp if I had to put it on the poll. Could you make a lamp seven eight six four five six four eight three seven is the telephone number. If you wanna call us with your swish sound now, Billy are you alleging Dan, I could make no you're wondering what could you make a table. I could make I look at tables. And I think that is easy a spice rack who a toolbox. That was always one of those things that you made which is really practical. And it was weird because you used your tools to make the toolbox. The story tools in. Did you put yourself in there? Stephen. Steven you're on ESPN radio. Do you make a good swish sound? So sh-, Stephen go ahead. Oh that sounds more like a paper cut nothing. But nylon. Mike, you're on ESPN radio. Go ahead. Mike. John lost them. All right. We'll bring him back. I'm sorry. Hold on down. Pum never know everybody come down bring over there. Just calm down.

Okay. That was pretty good seven eight six, you know, what let's regather ourselves. Everybody's a little hysterical. We need to call off. We come back with your swish sound to God's here.

Donlevatar metal nets have to be right up there with like ice skates as the most dangerous things that people do to play sports, right? Because you know, that the people that are buying those metal nets are largely kids. And if they have a hoop that they lower it's like at seven feet tall, and they're just dunking on them. And you know, the fingers are getting stuck in those nets stugatz in track and field the gun they shoot off. That's kind of dangerous now, it's not an actual gun. I don't think it's harder to shoot anything. I know it doesn't actually should a bullet. Nothing comes out of it. No, just the sound. These live at our show with his two guys on ESPN radio. Gary firecrackers for lost fingers. What is the thing that you think eliminates the most fingers the accident? I'm sure there's an answer to this. But we were talking about this before because for some reason Billy couldn't find any in his arsenal of ways that you lose fingers. So if I went of your telling me shop class, you're telling me that's something that we're not doing in high schools anymore. We're not doing woodshop anymore. Now, we're not teaching that anymore that feel like it's like homemaking homemaking went away. Also, say Bill electric saws, though, probably the most common. I mean, you mentioned fireworks. I mean, that's how JP get taken out. That's correct. That is how that happened. So we've got a lot of swish sound here on the line. Many of you are demanding that I comment on lavar ball comment on his shame. You are. You are professing him lebatardshow father of the year. I was not I just was rooting for an anarchist. And I was rooting for him. And I root for his ideas. The man makes it very difficult to root for him. But if you want to mock him for losing one point five million dollars to a trusted best friend. You can I'm not going to do that. Because that must hurt that must stink to to get close to the money. And I don't know. I mean are any of Lonzo ball's injuries? Can they be tied in any way to the shoes? So that was actually something in the story that Ramona Shelburne wrote about this alleged fraud deep in that story was also a part where the Lakers actually asked Lonzo how much of this has to do with the shoes and Lonzo kinda none on the shoes of fine. And they I think they left it alone. But. You have to ask yourself, if it's a shoe made by shoe company. That's only existed for a couple of years. You know, if you go Adidas Nike's or even something like new balance behind it. At least several decades of they've been making shoes, they know what works, and what doesn't terms of what's good for an athlete. And so you have to ask yourself with shoes responsible. The whole thing has collapsed on them in a way that makes them I I know that you were telling me for a while there that your high school at your kids high school, the boys were gathering around Lithuanian television, because they wanted aiming Lithuanian teller washing them because they wanted to watch the ball kids because they they're, you know, they're reality television Kardashian for the next generation of sports people, but you have to have the excellence somewhere in this. You have to have a player somebody's gotta pan out as a player, who's not useless. Well, they were doing that in hopes that I think a lot of people thought Lonza would pan out. The way his dad thought he was going to pan, and maybe he still will. But at that time, that's why they were getting around. Hey, if Lonzo like they're making this big of a deal out of Lonzo and his dad, I want to see what the other brothers. Could. You know, then the big story isn't the lavar. Empires coming the big story is that Lonzo got his triple B's tattoo covered up. And Billy showed me the picture. He said the triple b logo it's like dice, but Billy. It's not like that you've ever seen. It is the worst tattoo cover of I've ever seen in my entire life. And I do a lot of time looking at tattoo worked in look the tattoo artist put this picture out as if this was something to be proud of one of the dice is Pentagon shaped it has five sides for some reason. And then if you look at like, the alignment of the numbers like the three is not a three that's ever been on any dice in my lifetime that twos or not like across each other. They're lined up. You could have a mean pointed out perfectly. He should have just put a giant rectangle over it. And just covered it up. Completely because it would have looked better than these like misshapen die. It's the strangest thing I've ever seen in my life. The comments are so mean. They're just going in on the not on Lonzo. Not on the fact that big baller ban is failing. They're all going in on the tattoo and the tattoo artist asking if this is in third grade, art class. This is first time that seem better stuff with what's what's it? Call when you do the homemade tattoo, stick and poke or something like ask him if he's ever seen die before. It looks like the most fingers are laws by chopping vegetables. James on ESPN radio. James, go ahead, James. That sounds it. Like a pellet of terrible. Oscar, you're on ESPN radio. Go ahead. Oscar. That sounded like like a bat with me, you're on ESPN radio. Go. That sounds like knees. It's sounded more. Like a sneeze is tight. Matt you're on ESPN radio. Go ahead. Even a situation. It was a decent swish. But he ruined it by whatever he said before go, you're on ESPN radio. Go ahead. Somebody sneezing or choking one of the other. Tyler you're on ESPN radio. Go ahead Tyler. It'll never be what Matt was you ruined on that. Last segment. I just I can't Tyler just open a beer, Mike. That's a fun. Can you guys? Help me with green the calls. How do you think if America if America is watching this lavar ball thing there's going to be a lot of laughter when you come out of the gate with that kind of arrogant, you're going to be a game changer? You're going to be a pioneer and next thing. You know, none of the basketball players are are producing great basketball. You got a brand that is associated with laughing stock and nonsense your chance to hit the sweet spot of we're going to be the energised who do things better and differently than anyone else is lost. It wasn't a terrible idea. Was a terrible idea. It was a terrible execution of that idea. Then here's the thing. When all of this was happening when it was still new and fresh the thing that kept coming into my mind was there won't be successful. But someone will come along afterward and look at this blueprint say, okay, there's something to this here. We can. Not make the mistakes at lavar did along the way, but still take control of this idea that a player in individual has a brand big enough to even rival debate sneaker companies to break the system that we have it is something that I hadn't considered though. I mean before this story arrived, and before people started asking, whether lonzo's injuries have anything to do with the sneakers. I had underestimated what decades worth of engineering and failing and mistake making would make your sneaker, and I hadn't considered the idea that the sneaker could injure the player, that's not something. I know I should have considered it. Right. But it's I didn't think that sneaker would be so shoddily made that it would actually injure the player, especially when you sneakers sneaker. It's I'm not thinking sneakers sneaker. But I'm thinking if he's charging five hundred dollars for sneakers that that's going to be a sneaker that has to be well made. But no, it wasn't wasn't talking to five hundred dollars because of so well made he told her. Five hundred dollars because he's trying to position it as a luxury item as a status symbol item. Right as nothing to do with engineering and shoot that you can make shoot that is good for walking around in everyday life, but not necessarily good for elite level athletic performance tick of Chuck Taylor's, right? This used to be the shoe NBA players war when they played basketball. Now, you'd be nuts to where the where those in an NBA game. But people so wear them to walk around. And I mean, but if you're selling a five hundred dollars sneaker, you can't just be selling packaging myth. You can't just like that has to be a sneaker. That's well made it has to be I wouldn't think about like Balenciaga sneakers, which are so big right now, even though a lot of them look hideous. You'll couldn't play basketball game in those. But they charged four hundred ninety five five hundred dollars. Why because it's a status symbol. It's a luxury item. The difference is of course, it's Balenciaga which is a luxury brand versus triple b which is basically just a t shirt that has threes on it. And by the way. They stole the nickname. Wasn't. He making no sneakers in his basement wasn't. No, I don't where did you get that from pretty sure that that was overseas? No. Where did you get? You have lavar ball doing shop class making sneakers the way Roy's father made lamps in highschool donlevatar. Tom Ricketts is saying that comes will not allow Sammy Sosa back into that organization for anything moving forward until he comes clean, and what I find certain about that and what a hypocrite. This guy is is that family made hundreds of millions of dollars off the name. Sammy Sosa by the way, never tested positive for steroid years. And if he was using steroids, which we all assume that he was my guess is if he was using it the Ricketts family had an inkling that that was going on in their own clubhouse ever hit a come out many many years later as Sammy Sosa must come clean for us to allow him back into our procedures organization. Our club get outta here with that. Stugatz. Ricketson make money off same. He sosa. He won the bid in two thousand and nine this was post, Amy Sosa. Well that ruins my argument. VC's live at our show with this two guys on ESPN radio. You have been distracted all show today handling your fantasy draft. You've also lashed out at everyone for your mistakes and you own money here. You haven't paid yet? Whatever it is that you were supposed to pay for your fine of blaming others. Right. You're you're just and you blamed Chris for the bad calls last segment. You also you blamed Chris for being a bad. Call screener, you spit that at him. He's taking switch calls from all over America there. And and Chris how are you feeling about this batch of calls because I do believe that this was a decent idea that has died on the vine a little bit. You know, decent idea. I feel okay about the calls. It's a little hard to judge. Because all I'm hearing all in listening for is. So it's really tough. Gauge, what's a good one. What's bad one? I didn't really know Mike a few segments back. I didn't know that was great. And that's the best wish I've ever heard. The name, right. The stuff. So what do I do about it? What do I do do? I keep taking calls. How do you feel about this batch? Or should I try to do my own damn sports radio show about boring things like comedy duos? I would take the swish calls. Oh, yeah. I mean, your name is on the show. All right. Well, the telephone number seven eight six four five six four eight three seven if you wanna make switch calls on the radio. Who have we decided has the best one? Here was Royd claiming that he has the best one. No. I never said that here's mine. It's not terrible. His is not. It's not good. I mean, you got a great. Here's the main. There was no net. They're here. Looking air bowl on you. It's on you. I have to burp hold on floors really off the end. All right. Excellent work by it's it's like similar guy. There's only certain days, but you can whistle. You kinda need to make sure there's the right type of moisture in your mouth, and you're gonna make the swish sound. You wanna get ready? Wow. Not bad. Not bad. Yeah. Ear there's going to be. There's gotta be a h in their mind. A wow. Heavy basketball it helps if I don't look at you guys when you do it can you do it again, go. Amazing might turn. It's more of a whip yours is a horse and the cherry on my head. And I'm trying to do that sound at the end because he was right at first. It was just the thing. All right, so seven eight six four five six four eight three seven the telephone number. If it is raining jumpers. The warriors just ran in here. A lot of four pointers. Josh you're on ESPN radio. Josh go ahead. Oh, dear. Leave us. All right. Sound Cam you're on ESPN radio. Solid was it. All right. A game. Let's talk to do it again camp. I was going. I was going once it sounds like a falling into the whole. No, no, no. No, no, no, no. My you're on ESPN radio. Go ahead. Mike. Well, I don't have a net sound, but I do have a funny name for you. Stop that an hour ago. PTSD, Gordon, okay. It's why I don't take calls that that entire batch. This is your now you guys get to see why it is that this show moved away from calls a longtime ago staff curry. You see what I mean? Now about being a bad call screener? I mean, do you see is it? I'll ask you gotta. Anyway, here's what's police it over there. Chris comes to up. Let's. Let's. Wants to do as call screener jumped up. Let's see if we can improve this because he does like to criticize Chris Chris doesn't have any Chris any training in this. Maybe stugotz is better at this than Chris is at call screening. It's all the crap shoot. Okay. Maybe in front of the better. Call screener to. Alter-ego passive in the hallways that I love you do because he doesn't want to hurt his feelings. Okay. But let me explain something to you about this whatever flick shin. It is that Stu got has dunning Kruger. Whatever it is where he is delusional about thinking that he is better at everything than anyone is what are you laughing about their ROY? Exactly. This your man. Okay. That is something guys too. But you gotta come stronger than that, man. Listen to Saint Chris answering the phones anymore right through the phone doing this for years born to do this. You get out of here. Get out of here. Okay. Slowest golf greener ever. I gotta get a call on the air here. And grand. I gotta get a call on the air. Here's to God's at some point. Do you want the calls the be good dano or do you want him to be bad? I was all about I will wait you out. We've got two minutes left in the segment guys. Get him out of my ears cat phones. I know they're very loud. The headphones are very loud. So we're gonna take these calls in a second from stugatz. But what I'm telling you guys here in the audience. How do you think Stu Gotch generally goes over at ESPN given that much like with this, call screening experiment? He thinks he can do every job in the building better than the people doing that job in the building. How do you guys imagine that that flies up in Bristol? Because I'm telling you, many people are sick of God's coming into their cubicle era area sort of from a distance and saying that he could do their job better than that. If flies like live balloon. Solid reference. Thank you. Thank you. All right. So we've got no calls right now. We've got not a call one. All right. Let's go. This is this is going to finally produce something after much constipation. There is something Billy. What are you doing? Who? Do you want me to go to here? So that we can get a pebble of something to end this segment. So that I could be done with this experiment of people failing. Well, it was on hold right now. The name somebody give me a name somebody give me something a line to Joe is online. All right. Maybe joel. All right. We don't know if it's Joey or jolt not getting a lot of help from that backroom Donohoe really add into the segment aunt you saying y'all Santos you're on ESPN radio. Go ahead. I rest my case JOL, you're on ESPN radio go at jolt. Cedo gastro way to go to guys donlevatar. Good work today that was a fun show. Stugatz. It was also intergalactic -ly stupid VC's live at our show with his two guys on ESPN radio. So stugatz now realizing how hard it is to do Chris cody's job. And Chris Cody is now realizing how hard it is to do Stu gods. His job. Listen, buddy. Roy doesn't have what I have to read in front of me. So I don't know to do that will put them in front of students in our go. That's just because you can't find it doesn't mean as my phone to God's how're the call's going. You have any calls here that are worth going to. I do listen I realize how difficult the job is. Okay. But you really have to press these people and make them do it again. And again and take your time with this stuff. You can't just put them on the air. And that's what I'm talking. I'm, yuck. Ended up having a blast here. I think I have four good calls on the one. If you missed any of our interviews, go check out our entire interview on demand in the Dan lebatardshow podcast brought to you by Capital One savored card earned four percent cashback on dining entertainment, two percent at grocery stores and one percent all other purchases, what's in your wallet. So there are four four calls on the board here. And I think the one you're gonna like the most save the best for last is L. Okay. Say the as L. All right. We'll see how you're doing here at lebatardshow on Twitter who's gonna read the polls is it going to be to God's fakes to God's or fake fakes to God's. All. Right.

Thirty three percent. Okay. Get out of here walk into the ocean anymore. Go ahead Bill you pick up for fakes to God's here, please. Because he clearly cannot do it in the interim. I will go out to Mike Mike, you're on ESPN radio. What do you have Mike? Do it again. Screen call, Dan. I don't see ROY as laughter or approval in the other room Josh here on ESPN radio. Josh go ahead. God davey. Stay there. We're gonna have it. All right. We're gonna have we're gonna have a swish off in a second. Josh, let's see if we can find another person to rival, Josh. So we end the show and we declare a winner once and for all Fred, you're on ESPN radio. Fred go head. Back aikman. All right. We got different games being played here. And he lost that game. Seven eight six four five six four eight three seven what are you smiling about Stu guy news cranes better than I do at lebatardshow on Twitter? What do you have their fakes to gut?

Should I spend money go into a real state of Yar ballpark in oracle park and watch the giants play or should I spend money and go sit in the sun and the heat and Levi's and watch the forty Niners play the real important sports question for you guys. Put on the pole walk into the ocean. Doing what are you doing? Why did you put that person on the phone with me? That's not what he said to be on the phone. I gotta be honest. Totally Duke me, I've still got Josh here. Waiting to do a swish off for with somebody. Apparently apparently shoeless Joe Jackson got blisters while we're in a new pair of cleats.

Hour 1: Barkley's Comments

The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz

Hour 1: Barkley's Comments

"At IBM problems inspire us to push the world forward. That's why so many people work with us on everything from city traffic to Shen plastic smart loves problems. Ibm A. B. M. Let's put smart to work visit. IBM DOT COM slash smart to learn more. This is the Dan Le Batard show with this to spot CASS. What are you doing back there? Chris because you look like you know the chef that's sprinkled salt on the Turkey. You mean okay. You guys have been enjoying that video this morning. It is a bit of a work of art. I didn't know we still made videos videos. That are works of art. I thought people it's BOP by the baby stugatz and they've been obsessed over there watching the video but is it again again not doing that again. The last time those words are coming out of my mouth We begin by. We begin with the difficult stuff because Charles Barkley Glee is trending. And if you have not seen the story STU gods This happened lace Late last night an axios reporter. A woman named Alexi seem mcammond was talking to him off the record about politics and Democratic presidential candidates and Charles Barkley she put in Put on twitter and tweet quote just. Fyi Charles Barkley told me tonight. I don't hit women but if I did I would hate you who Yeah so This is two thousand nineteen and that one doesn't fly. An added layer to this. Conversation was off the record by her own admission and and she ignored that like. She says that women's causes there too important to abide by the journalistic rules of what off the record is is off the record off the record I mean every single post to be but But again this stuff is all changing journalism changing ever. Look the tectonic. Tonic played shifting under Charles Barkley's feet at the moment Our Societal and their coast-to-coast widespread America is undergoing a sea. Change where we all know. These are not things you say anymore. Charles Barkley is a friend of our show and personally a friend of mine fine. He's been saying things like this to make his entire career across several decades. Make him the host of Saturday night live. He's he's the guy. We don't allow COMEDIANS. We've already gotten into comedy here and the Comedians are all running scared. They're all complaining about how they have to play scared. And it's a bit off putting to see our most clever minds get together and all of them lament how afraid they are of doing comedy in two thousand thousand in one thousand nine hundred because the rules have changed but it sounds it sounds hugely narcissistic and myopic to hear comedians lament about freedoms being being taken away to each other. Because it's a pretty universal complaint. Now we're going a step beyond that because we're talking about a guy who is famous for being allowed to say whatever the hell he wants. It has been hugely profitable for many many decades for Charles Barkley again in his fifties Hosting Saturday night live long after he's done playing and the source of his fame now is this is the guy who's allowed to not give a bleep and on this subject in two thousand in a nineteen. You're not allowed to not give a bleep. You've got to change some of your language. Because there has been a sea change in women correctly Demanding the same kind of equality that black people have been demanding and grabbing some of this power and making men run scared but this is the last guy in the world. I can imagine running scared for much of anything. Because he's been rewarded for this behavior. Scott I remember being on a street eight corner in the nineties and the headline on the papers both of them being held up on the street. BECO- The million years ago Daily News and the Philadelphia Inquirer a headline is a Barkley Colon. I'm a ninety S N word. That's what it said a across the headline and I'm like again. I WanNa read whatever it is. That said Charles Barkley's the same guy who goes into court rooms to got. He's in the middle of it after spitting on a fan. He's in the middle of it after getting into uh-huh bar fight because he will not a by disrespect if you disrespect him in a fight over your woman because you're women's paying too much attention to him or or the fame around him he'll dragged across the floor and so when he goes into the courtroom and the Judge Asks Him. Do you have any regrets about throwing someone through a plate glass window. His responses wants is. My only regret is that we weren't on the second floor. This is the source of this man's fame in American culture is that he says whatever the bleep he he wants and at every turn. America has rewarded him with McDonald's commercials with the cover of sports illustrated shirtless in in slave chains. Pains like America has rewarded him at every. Turn for being the guy who says what he thinks but a thousand nineteen on or off the record. This is not something you can and say it was a bad decision by Charles. I'm wondering does he survive this. This is the easy stance. Okay Yours is the easiest possible stance and I'm offering bring you all of the qualifiers for why the rules are supposed to be different for this guy because he saying on the front end. I don't hit women women but if I did I would hate you. It's a kind of joke. He's been making. I'm saying literally for thirty years. Nobody's told him before now that it's wrong or at least no one stopped him from doing this. This kind of joke. My guess is my guess. Is that rolls off his tongue easily. Because he's been saying that same thing that's not. He didn't come up with that last night. That's something he's been saying for a good long time and many people are fed up with cancel culture and the idea that you immediately go. Should he survive it like. That's just it's the easiest easiest possible plate. Should someone be fired for the thing that they said. When I'm offering you all of the qualifiers on how it is? We arrived in him saying the wrong thing which we can agree again you know as Myles Garrett goes to his appeal hearing you know my stance on this. We can all agree when stuff is wrong. That's not the interesting part of the conversation. Listen to me all of us clucking about what's wrong and then trying to outrage the next guy as we freedoms in jobs from powerful people who envy because they have better freedom and jobs than we do like the people are fed up with that cancel culture and you if it happens to you trust me we will end me. We'll be running for the hills when that arrives at our doorstep with and and we'll be like body body of work what about the decades before that what about what about what about at but we are in a culture now where everything gets burned down and many people are objecting to that through comedy and everywhere else and and hits wrong to say that. It's wrong of her to do something. That was off the record. That now brings attention to her in. What was an off the record conversation in a forever changing journalism landscape that it has been wrong at any time in my life as a journalist it has been wrong to take an off the record conversation and do that with it? Yeah and she objected to him and according to her the response was you can't take a joke. Something along those lines Charles. I guess clearly knows where the rules are on the air and on the record because while he says some things get people riled up about San Antonio doesn't really for someone that is known as a loose cannon. He hasn't really gotten in trouble for things that he said on the air now. He's learning what the rules are off-the-record and off the air in two thousand nineteen again. 'cause I know many of you are going to hear many different things here with these conversations and our audience. This is the last audience that wants to be told by women What is the correct language? Because we've got a lot of apes and cavemen and men who were used to the having the power all of their life where may deeply uncomfortable by women grabbing some of the power back from a journalistic standpoint though I am wondering yes S.. Clearly it's off the record. Yes it's bad to put that stuff on the record when it's off the record but I'm wondering is there. I'm not a journalist you are. Is there any sort of line. If you're interviewing someone they they say something to you that you are uncomfortable with his newsworthy off. The record is off the record. So that's it's not off the record except if you say something newsworthy. It's off the record. That's what it's supposed to be. That's that's been the rule that's been the rule my life. Maybe it's changed now because honest to God I don't recognize some of what I'm seeing with anonymous sourcing and just how this entire landscape has changed where there are many things reported all the time. Where I'm like is that true? Do it happens all the time in sports. What are we know that it's true about the Colin Kaepernick thing in terms of whether or not there? There's a Nike film crew of what happened at the last minute. Who leaked what? Like I don't understand I legitimately don't understand fifty years old anymore. What the rules are axios? axios is bound by the what used to be the old journalism rules because axios didn't didn't exist back when they were being being made. axios is a new thing and this is I think this is a young woman from what it is that I only saw the computer. Very small You know sort sort of Avatar social media photo of her So there seems to be a young journalist so I will say again for those who are unclear about this our friend and we've got biases about this because we like Charles Barkley around here and we enjoy what he's been doing on television and the radio for a long time. Our friend was wrong in saying this. My curiosity goes the next step beyond like who's allowed if not him who is allowed to make the off color off the record politically incorrect joke. If not this guy who has been famous all his life life for being the guy who says it on the record not off the record like my guess is you will find some deeply uncomfortable things Charles his said on. TNT that brings him attention and much much money for TNT and makes that no matter the the revolving cast of characters the most important pre game show that we have in America. Stu Gods here.

Our own shows are billy Chris and stugotz rankings. We will unveil those later in the show to much fanfare also at twelve thirty eastern We're going to have that at Bengals Fan who has been living on top of a bar since week. Five Just waiting for a victory so that he can get off of the the rooftop. We're just GONNA ask him about some of the discomforts that come with living on top of a bar because it seems like a terrible idea no matter how much publicity UN getting one would think not the case really cushy on that rooftop awesome pictures is it. I mean this guy has like I'm telling. Oh you the rooftops probably nicer than his house. I don't know what he does and I don't know what his house looks like. But Christmas showing me pictures. There's this big catering tent above like the roof move. I don't even know by the way how they built this restaurant to support all of this weight for all the stuff that they have on top of the roof for this guy. There's like tant like you're at a party and they have like an outdoor party Freddie and it's like Florida so they have these big white Tan polls. There's one of those and then inside of that. He's sleeping in a tent inside of a tent. This guy's not out in the elements Added Living rent-free on top of this roof so he's not even cold all right. Well I look forward listen. He's rooting for the keep losing. Because of the set of this he wouldn't mind spending the offseason there all right so this is what I'm saying all right billy and I need to do in terms of arming you the proper way but but I was headed at twelve thirty eastern into doing the wacky morning showed cliche thing of going out to the winless teams guy who's living on a roof and asking him questions. We're going to blindside him. One or two questions in with cynical billy and your going to take over over the interview and you're going to badger this guy about how not bad. His conditions are and not not since that paddle border who made his way across the ocean. Impressively for charity has cynical. Billy been this fired up about questioning somebody in what they're doing. So you're saying this guy is not even out in the cold. I do a little more research but from what I see. It seems like he's got a pretty nice setup and I feel like the longer it goes in the more attention people like us give him the more stuff he's getting out of this. You know what I mean like. I'm showed by now. He has like a space heater a massage chair. And he probably has guys Kayak up there in the spirit of journalism changing. I I want the new two thousand in nineteen hard interrogator Walter. CRONKITE type sponsor. I was just told spots by Campbell. Soup Okay You keep you warm and the gold. Even if you're not out in the cold what I'm telling you is I wish for this interview to turn into journalism and for it to be a badgering interview. Where you swing a single light bulb of interrogation over this guy's head and we make it feel we we really make it hard on him and his sponsors? Is he doing this for something. Because then I'm gonNA feel bad publicity. The guy was doing it like for charity and then I felt guilt after the fact is I was going after is is this a charity thing. You just need to say exactly where you are. This is the right head right guy. Weren't you supposed to write him a letter to keep them in the country. Did you do that for roped me into Into that you needed. He needed a character. Reference based on being on our radio. Show that one time to stay in the country and there were meetings. And that's that's ever get around to it no. I didn't no one ever brought any more information. You guys quit on immediately immediately. I don't know where the paddle border is anymore. No He's not so we're going to interview that guy. Twelve thirty eastern his His name his name is Jeff Lanham and he will be on with us. Twelve thirty eastern. I'm looking at this guy set up. I mean he's Guy Gasoline and he's got electricity he's got tons of food and now he has a sponsor he's making money off of it so bill. Just stay right where you are because it's perfect. I was excited to talk to this guy but now I'm not well. Cincinnati Sonetti go look November and Cincinnati. And you're still talking ten. I don't know what's in the tens. I don't know if he's got those those heaters. I mean he's out in the elements. He's on a roof that has snow piled on top of that roof. It doesn't look like I'd like to spend any time in this situation. So how should we do this. I'm going to interview him on the Front End Serious morning. Zoo hijinks style. Tell me about the discomforts and then halfway through you're gonNA come and tell them with your cynicism no now I'm going to help them with facts. I'M GONNA ask them serious.

ESPN radio all throughout the day. Billy why did you just look crestfallen a moment ago because the guy and the roof is listening and he's already checkmated me on this. Oh how did you. He's trying to help out a local family and there's you know diseases and it can be a charitable publicity stunt. That's it's too comfortable. We will find out in two hours it can be. It can be a totally charitable altruistic. Wonderful thing that he's doing and fraudulent. You know the problem. uh-huh is that I lacked that killer instinct. But Stu gods has you know what I mean like close to the fire and then the fire starts. La Little Willie uh-huh tent when he's on the roof and he's actually warm because he has a fireplace up there. That's what happens it. I'm like Oh let me get back a little bit. Because he's doing good thing. Liz It tread lightly because I will steal steel lane and I will run. He wants he wants it. He was looking up on the Internet. He so wants to knock you out of the way. Not since I not you out of the way on Marlins opening day in two seasons ago around here Stu gods his dying for you to meekly beg out guilty. Because he wants to do the interrogation of the Bengals Fan living on a roof. That feels a little too luxurious penthouse. A deluxe apartment in the sky. Two billion point. This guy is watching us on the roof watching TV right Stevie like cable and like not even like basic cable. We're not that easy to find the red zone up there. Abdullah Red Zone. Yeah he gets his meals delivered. His wife comes by. She does laundry. I mean he has a shower. Second floor of the restaurant. Full full bathroom everything. He's rooting for the Bengals to lose right like he doesn't want to get off that roof. This is such a good setup and by the way. Thank you for what you're doing for the family family. They didn't say come on. Guys it's do God's is going to steal this from you. Not since the Marlins on the first pitch of opening day with special correspondent Billy Gill has something. been this ripe for the stealing Mrs Much as you can hear. Take us up to the dramatic first pitch billy Iranian standing at the back of the mouth he reaches down he's rubbing third and bras and on his hand and here we go up and now he's writing something on the mound with his fingers next to the logo. I can't see what he's riding the lineup and the bitch. Oh I think he's ready to take it from me at twelve thirty Charles. Barkley has apologized in a is it a statement is it a Turner Turner Sports has released a statement on behalf of Charles Barkley. They WANNA keep him employed. Yeah Yeah and so. They told him to apologize. And that makes those things. Go Away pretty quickly. I'm assuming that I don't know that. Here's the The statement that was sent out by Turner. Pr My comment was inappropriate and unacceptable. It was an attempted joke joke. That wasn't funny at all. There's no excuse for it and I apologize all right that one. That doesn't apologize very often. So he didn't dig his heels in and that's usually enough to WHO Make it go away Not Enough people take that path. They stubbornly dig in on not saying the two words. I'm sorry there will be others. Who Will Complain? There will be in our audience. Many who complain in two thousand and nineteen that. It's not something Charles Barkley should have to do apologize for they will lament the man's inability to say what he used to be able to say. And I say the man as the gender not Barclay I am self and they will feel threatened by the inability to just say what you WANNA say whatever. It is without apology. But this is what happens when Ronan Farrow does the Pulitzer Prize Reporting that he does to lead to a metoo movement that feels a little more equitable. All where men can't just get away with saying and doing whatever they want in and outside of the workplace almost say the apologies. Not Enough Right. I don't think there will be too many. Who say that but we will find out? Let's see what Sarah Spain says. Usually in apologies enough people are reasonable. Stu Gods when when you don't dig in on defiance and stubbornness and try to argue your point. Generally speaking are there are a lot of people. Do you see a lot of instances in your life where someone says. I'm sorry to you and the result is to hit that person with rabid rage. You don't care about that person in anyway. If that's what you're doing instead of sort of you know accepting an apology Collagen for someone making a mistake and then You know things if you if you actually care about the person right can you imagine. Let's not that everyone is is your children or your wife but imagine people you care about people that you love you. They've wronged you in some way and they say I'm sorry now there are some crimes that are unforgivable. I I don't think in the public saying this is unforgivable. Saying this joke and then apologizing for it doing it can be unforgivable. Gobble if you're ray rice and averaging three yards a carry. This isn't friends and family understanding though and accept an apology. You're asking entire country essentially understood but usually usually what ends up getting softened is if the apology is that immediate you know. We deconstruct very often in the news media. We love doing this one. The sincerity Of An apology. But usually and I'm I'm sorry for reasonable people around things that are said not done right. The things that are said usually an apology is enough. We're going to try and get hold of Howard Bryant because he has been doing some reporting on the capture nick next thing and offering some of the details it would make you understand how a poisoned distrustful situation would end up in maximum distrust As we've been talking about this the last couple of days though There are a whole lot of white people out there accusing me of hating white people and I just want to say publicly and for the record and I want this to echo throughout the attorneys some of my best friends Are White people and I married a white person PABLUM. It's human nature to hate problems. But why is that after all problems inspire us to mend end things. Ben Things make things better. That's why so many people work with. Ibm On everything from city.

Mummy you know. Do you think this me Stugotz Illinois. Oh you don't do. This is our show with the stugotz on. ESPN radio SARAHSPAIN. Ain't gonNA join us in about fifteen minutes on the shell pennzoil performance line so you saw that. The Patriots game against the Eagles did a big number. And this is GonNa be this coming week right as patriots cowboys. Yeah you can't do a bigger number than that can you is there. There's not a regular season game I can put in front of you. Is there like even if even if the footballs great. Even if I give you Lamar Jackson in Patrick Mahomes on a on a Thursday night or a Saturday Sunday Monday night. I am not going to be able to do what patriots cowboys. He's does in terms of just gathering America around the television yet in a major market in Boston. Dallas a big market America's team Brady and Prescott. I'd have I don't thank the. NFL could you better putting it at four. Twenty five on Sunday do better in terms of football because the Patriots offense. The last three weeks has been hard to watch. They can't throw the ball downfield the last three weeks. This is an up for dispute. Their offense it constipated they've got eshelman and nothing else that receiver and when you lose Antonio Brown. I'm an GRONK and Josh Gordon. You've ceased to be able to throw the ball down the field. Which is why you have seen over the last three weeks? The Tom Brady doesn't have a touchdown down. Pass which seems almost unfathomable you have cowboys patriots. Four twenty five packers niners the Sunday night game. And then you have rams and Ravens Evans as the Monday night game three incredible match us but if you could only watch one or at least for me the one I would WanNa Watch is Dallas Patriots. You mentioned Rams Ravens that one. It doesn't feel the way that it used to. Because Jared Goff has proven to be system guy like even it took trubisky being awful for them to get seventeen eighteen points or their offense. They've got to. They got money tied up in Girlie and girly who's hurt and Goth. Who can't play unless unless everything's just so right and Brandin cooks out can cost and who knows when or if he'll get back? Rubber Woods was out injured but the marquee match. There isn't a quarterback's it's the mark Jackson versus Aaron Donald. Donald Packers niners is also I got flexed instead of cowboys. Patriot every once in a while they can attack the marquee. Four o'clock match because oftentimes do a massive number. That game just feels like it belongs to four twenty five but flexed in niners packers which it should be a gray macho. Tried taking that away from Fox cowboys page. Well let me ask you guys this question do any of you have this happen to you. It happened to me last week. It doesn't happen often But I will. And it was the day after my wedding so That contributed to it. But I had zero interest in the four o'clock games as like just wasn't interested in late football at all retired there were no but it's not just there's always a way to get interest. Not just it's not just that I was tired tired. It's That the match ups outside of Eagles and Patriots warned something that I particularly wanted to watch and and that was a terrible game right. Yes actually cardinals. Nine was an excellent game but no one was really paying attention doing right now and cares. Put It on the poll game. Are you ever paying attention to the floor. Four o'clock Arizona. Game ever paying attention to four o'clock Arizona Cardinals game because I'm pretty sure that I've got some Arizona cardinals. Bias is there even with their exciting young quarterback Kyle Murray. I've got some bias in that if you tell me Arizona's in the late games I'm less interested in the late game. Ah here's what's going up against cowboys patriots. And there's only one game jags. Titans tightness I mix are They are a plague. They are the the functioning face of mediocrity in that league. And and it's always gonna be that hold. Why is that whole division such an apocalypse the whole division? I mean you may. Andrew lucked quit quit. You've made Shawn Watson less interesting than I thought he was getting away and it's just by virtue of all the garbage in that division. Six six four six four five and five more none of your ever GonNa win anything none of you comfortably. Garmin chewed throw him for like two hundred and fifteen yards the game. Was You remember that we wrote that mustache into the sky like a magic carpet. Oh my God there's a personality in that division are are you kidding me. And they were all Tannahill. He's got a mustache. They were all Mariota's Nick foles. Yeah Nick Boring Nick foles but surprisingly mainly six six nick foles Nick foles does a good job saying nothing. He's mastered that. Let's think about this for a second. I want you guys to think for a second about the quarterbacks in that division and just their interviews now they're playing style interview you realize why career road why we went for a mustache right. Do you guys realize why it is that. We went with Gardner Minhsiu into the sky as a personality. Alex because Jacoby percent give me all the interesting things he said. And it's like asking me all these bill parcell Sean. Watson's got an interesting story but he doesn't he's the he's the class of the division terms of interviews Mariota and Tannahill good. God Nickel's worth Menchu. Who's the biggest star in that division? Now that Andrew is Shawn Watson has to RJ deirdre Hopkins maybe Jj Watt when. He's healthy but he's never healthy. Do you guys hate divisions much as I do. Everyone does well which is the worst division that one of the AFC because the Patriot they see East top-heavy because the teams that the other teams in the AFC at least teams at least in the AFC. East what you have is just terrible underneath the the Patriots right bills are seven three I'm not I'm just in January. Twenty years of terror. You have the greatest team ever fall by terrible. The entire divisions a nate. It's every single. One of those seems none of them are actually terrible. They're all just in the mix like the. JAGS will end up beating. The titans will discount this. Count the Titans and the next week. The will get back to six and six schefter actually had a tweet about how rare I need to pull it up but how rare it is have three of the main primetime games have have feature all winning teams. Good Games all the Games you guys mentioned hold to add. Texans is as good as that division can give us and we got it Thursday night we we are. We are GONNA get four o'clock football. That goes into the night on. We're GONNA get legitimate. There's GonNa be no Peter out on the one o'clock games because the witching hour is the heroin you get the one o'clock games you gotta just bombardment of Stimuli and then it slows now at four o'clock and then they give you the good one on Sunday night but they're going to give you cowboys. Oh Boy Patriots at four twenty five year which e our will flow right into cowboys Patriots and Cowboys Patriots flows right into packers. niners liners and then we have to wait. Twenty four hours for another good game. Is that moving too slow for you guys. Even with this as good as the Games are does it move too slow for you guys in two thousand nineteen now that it's it's a bombardment of red zone stimulus isn't the NFL of a couple of years ago. Although the Patriots offense seems to be but this is an interesting match I can watch. I'm not talking about the offense I'm talking about having the only one game about or a couple of game all care about both there now. Thank you totally unnecessary Dano there.

Hour 1: We Get The Best Of The Commish

The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz

Hour 1: We Get The Best Of The Commish

"Stugotz here the batteries are like the rare breed of athlete that always plays with a lot of power, but you could also depend on to be on the field game after game. Asked me that's the type of performance you want to your hood. So head to advance auto parts where you can get the reliability durability empower diehard with free testing and installation from advanced team members adventure auto at advance auto parts, and participating carquest locations. See Stores for details. He sees the Dan Lebatardshow, with Stugatz podcasts. Two stories in front of me I believe or worthy of sports discussion but I'm afraid of tossing one of them to Stugatz because. I don't think he's informed on it be if he were informed on it I don't think that he would want into this conversation. Are you seeing or have you seen what is happening with the Pittsburgh steelers as it regards how they are honoring people? I appreciate your confidence no I have not okay. I will move on it wouldn't have helped us even if you had I, don't think because it's a tricky. It is a tricky situation for all involved because basically, he went rogue on who he was going to honor. On his helmet after the steelers decided the captain said they were surprised by this they decided to. You know honor a victim of racial injustice Antoine rose and he is a former army ranger says, no. I'm going to honor a soldier who went in roic fashion and saved people fellow soldiers from a burning car seventy, two percent of his body was burned and then he died three weeks later somebody go ahead and tell him that he can't honor who he wants to honor. I would love to talk to the student because he's the one who was standing outside when they were in the locker room during the anthem and that is hard to do what it is that he is doing and you can't say anything to him if you're the league but that league. has threatened to. peyton manning for a uniform violation when he was trying to honor Johnny United because there's a reason, their uniforms they're supposed to be uniform and you can't have Peyton manning setting a precedent even if it's a charming one like the late Johnny United because then you're setting the precedent for everyone to do whatever they want. But who's going to say something to Army Ranger Alejandro Villanueva for breaking ranks from his team and furthermore breaking it was a pre approved message because the leagues are only allowing preapproved messages and he just went rogues that's I can't believe in Tomlin's locker room. This should tell you something. You'd think the footballs, the military think Tomlin's a military Nah Alejandro. Is the military like. Football can have its army rigidities, but this guy is going do what he wants with his principles and go ahead and say something to them because they can't nobody can. What are you gonNa say to somebody who has served who's a former army ranger who has decided to honor even but it breaks uniform it is technically a violation if you wanna be a stickler about these things, maybe it's a team. If you're going to say something to them just say, Hey, I respect the fact that you're trying to honor this person but that's not what this is all about perhaps. You can say anything to him. I. Really. Don't that one's difficult. I prefer the lower hanging fruit of what tyler did. Okay. Well, that's not where I was going to go either but got this story. This one's this one's also hard. I don't WanNa do this almost tyler I for still playing in the NFL. He's famously in Jacksonville now and just run a quick twitter search the other thing that is much easier and much more in Stugatz as wheelhouse and in honor of game to. Heat and Celtics. Sarah Spain The commission. Yeah. Is Wondering because the nuggets and heat of advanced and because the bucks and clippers haven't. Do. We put an asterisk on this season. Do we look at that face on Chris Cody Chris Cody right now is booing equality look at him. He does not like the idea that Sarah Spain has arrived and put an asterisk on the Miami Heat season. That's because his team is seven seven wins away from an NBA championship. I mean that's why Chris Objecting to it this is a real take Sarah. The reason for it is because the clippers and bucks were eliminated. The reason for it is the following okay. Sarah. Spain is and she's asking the question I don't think she's getting out there and saying that it is indeed an asterisk season. When you ask the question, you're dipping your toe in the water is dipping her toe in these particular said, Togo. This tall is filled with acid Sarahspain. You're dipping your toe in and this is unacceptable. So she is said that what would have to happen she was saying pre pandemic or pre season starting amid pandemic she was asking the question what needs to happen going forward in terms of results for you to be willing to put an asterisk on the season, and now some of those things. Have happened a one seed gone. We weren't expecting necessarily the bucks to be eliminated in the second round. The clippers are gone in the second round, and so she is asking, do you put an asterisk on this season? No No. Not at all what a dumb reason to because the bucks got eliminated. So if the bucks beat the heat as many people were predicting because our historic. Team with a two-time reigning MVP. Then we don't put an asterisk next to it. So we're taking credit away from the Miami Heat for winning a playoff matchup that if you watch basketball many people might pegged, Hey, this trouble spot there are lower siedman get outta here with that people just don't want to give Yokich in his bleeding arms credit they don't want to give Jimmy Buckets. His credit, it's just a refusal to adapt and learn. It's despicable from Sarah and I expect better from her abilities making sour face he is shaking his head. Sadly, what what's the matter? Billy why is care so much about what Sarah Spain or people that is going to be an asterix who cares search of real problems to worry about whether Sarah. Spades things this is a legitimate championship. If the heat weren't in good tension and Lebron won the title one, hundred percent everyone on this show be like. He won but it was in a bubble asterix thousand doesn't. Cow. Show. This is an asterix season, right like every team except the one that wins is going to say this one's not same. I'm not here for you calling out my own hypocrisies. Let me just do my thing, the heater and the ESPN APP. And this is the most important thing in my life. I don't have anything else to do really I care so much about an Astra's cow do put an asterisk on any of my things. I will rain down fury and a hell upon the for putting an asterisk on anything related to victory and feel good for Miami, and if you could stop giving the game away, we're not outraged about anything. Did you not notice that I couldn't engage students on the difficult topic? So I just went to the easy sports. Radio One. A. Talk it's the Stugatz wheelhouse. We can't do that anymore back to Tyler I. I mean, I gave yourself that I'm paying you I did. A hundred it's getting. Sorry Oh God, the guy from the steelers. I just made him the braves closer from the ninety from the late eighty was gotta. To know what he was talking about all those Latin. Guys, lookalikes. Let sell some ads is a setup guide billy now why I went to Astra's talk because I'm talking to over here. Will vote. is after he google than brought himself up to speed on this sort effort? You can catch her daily nightly on ESPN radio. Also, that's what she said is the name of the podcast is part of the lebatardshow friends. Network Mike Ryan has a sour face underneath his terrible. MINHSIU mustache go ahead. Let Sarah Sarahspain. Let's not even get to the pleasantries. Let Sarah Spain have it shame on Sarah Spain. For trying to take credit away from Jimmy Butler I know what's going on here don't pretend like I don't see it. You all see to. She's hurt by Jimmy Butler because he left greener pastures and now he's in Eastern Conference finals for the first time because he's finally with a real organization for the first time. You're just jealous Sarah Spain that's what it is. Well. Yeah, I'm one hundred percent jealous because my team is trash and there should be relegation than the NBA for teams like the balls. But that was three teams ago that didn't me Butler that he's been in three different places I just want to quickly explain my point which it was really dumb of me to assume it would actually make any sense on twitter or that anyone would actually read what I wrote and respond to it in a meaningful a nuanced way. I was just thinking to myself that months ago when they were debating weather to do the NBA bobble and finish the season as they have. There was a lot of questions about whether it would be a legitimate competition. Meaningful. Completion to the seasoned on my show on around the horn all sorts of people said, what would need to happen in the bubble for you to think that they shouldn't do it it a player not being able to play because of coronavirus is it a top team not advancing and a lot of people said if the best teams like the bucks or the clippers, the Lakers? In it it will feel like it's not the same. Looking at what happened and not taking anything away from the heat who were very clearly a good match for the bucks and showed. So in the regular season or anything away from the nuggets who are playing amazing in clearly use that how you'd like a almost like a second off season. I just asked the questions like Dan like to do sometimes but turned into like well, pain somehow on twitter based on the fact that you know the NBA usually has the most predictable playoff based on regular season success. This has been very unpredictable for the nuggets to win six elimination games and one postseason. They'd be down three one twice in the same postseason and come back for the home. Team in the second round of the bubble have an average scoring margin of minus three and a half to be three and fifteen as home teams for the last eighteen games. I'm not saying and asked even means something negative. I'm just wondering if we went back to the people we were in May and we told them, it was nuggets, Lakers and heat celtics would any part of that? Whoa what happened this like this doesn't feel like the same season? No, no, not not at all I mean the the nuggets were I mean projected to improve on last season and the Miami Heat were obviously favorites out he's so let me ask you a very simple question. Do you love your family? You love. Your family. You do if you were forced away from that family for several months why don't you think that would be difficult. But I'm not legitimizing that don't look. The. Tough question Spain, Saving Hotel for more than four days. Yes. It has an asterisk. It's actually tougher to win a title this time around how would you say that I agree with you on that certain certainly do. I think the conditions are more difficult. It is actually making it the most even keeled even fields because there's no home, there's no fan you don't get to leave. If you hate each other, you've got all your time together. The asterisk I was asking about is nothing to do with what we're seeing competed in the bubble. It's merely that months ago. If you had seen this, would you consider it the same or equal? who had this season completed without it? I think the answer is pretty clear Arnaud. I get what she's arguing. She's saying you should put an asterisk next to it because it's an even tougher championship to win a gold plated astros. Spain I'm so happy we deserve to. Brass. And It was a question I didn't even stay any opinion in the twelve, the opinion. The opinion you just stated is that in sports, an asterisk isn't necessarily negative. That's nonsense. That's nonsense. Come on never uses it in a positive light and Sarah Spain you know neutral and let me tell you this. Sarah came with us here on ESPN. Radio. Let me tell you this. When you're asking the question, it's really you're giving your opinion you're couching it as a question I've done that before yeah Sarah everyone is up to your drinks you're saying this title shouldn't be an actress it should be an exclamation point that's what you're saying. I often do use the same rhetorical. We have very similar style of both radio and just life I listen I apologize for getting so many people so angry, that's five. That's the only reason we. Needed that apology. Jimmy Butler in Chicago. I loved Jimmy Butler. This has nothing to do with me rooting for anyone. I actually would prefer the nuggets or the heat and I think that superfund. I just I just thought it was an interesting question. Okay. Well, now you've been browbeaten. Here with the new name. Sarah Kane. Bring polled Sarah by Stugatz what do you have here Chris? You have something for Sarah you're also want to give her the business. We'll see thinks that the heat is a nuggets winning would be super fund. So why not ask that? Why not put that out if they win, it's Super Fun. Yes. Yeah House Super Pas Superfund who it? So the most super FIS. More than a bigger super super on steroids fund or is it just not on my show tonight? I'm going to do. We don't have a show tonight, but I'm GonNa do it on my show tonight that question. Should never show tonight punished for that stress plus. Check out fits in Spain mightly should be in Spain, put it on the poll. Guillermo caged. Fits in Spain and put that on the poll as well. Should it be fits in Kane and also put on the poll is Sarah Spain trying to be Sarah Kane or maybe we can make it speed fist fits but with an actress. With. asterisks it's not negative. It's just an asterisk it's totally benign. Thank you Sarah for being with. Sarah. I have never heard her browbeaten into one. Less than strength. Felt good. That was unbelievable I don't understand what just happened. We got the best of the command. Yes. She just fled the premises and again belly a second segment where we are unreasonably mad about the asterisk. All it sounded to me like was a bunch of guys screaming at a woman I don't know. Quality. Unity Mu. Pay that man he's money. Actually think that's Progress I yelled at Sarahspain the same way that I would yell it will cain boy. Put. It on the poll please at Lebatardshow. Do you know why one gets their brow beaten at lebatardshow Stu gods, are you Billie and Chris Ready to put out your first BCS rankings now that the big ten is coming back to play and it looks like the PAC twelve is trying to get into position to get back and play. Are you guys ready to do the first BCS rankings or not quite yet? No I think we are indeed ready. We've expanded the BCS. We might need more time than we have in this segment, but we are ready to debut this season's BCS. During today's show we will do this billions very excited. We will do this at eleven am but I I'm sorry Christine we interrupted you. And finally, McDonald's corporate has warned its employees that Travis Scott fans are ordering his wildly popular travis. Scott. Meal by simply blasting his hit song sicko mode at the drive drive-thru. Speaking, of people who just pull up to McDonald's. Attendant's hand them his order without speaking. Here. Stanley Talk. I'm not going to say anything is on. What set. Absolute truth I don't know how she knows it. She seems to be watching. Our thanks to Christine Lizzy. This is what I would say to you. Regarding, the return of college football and I'm not gonNA shake my fist at everyone here I've told you before that we as network and we as people who care about sports or compromised on this issue we want sports back because we love sports and beyond that we need sports. In, order for people not to get fired around here, we need the sports to be vibrant. One of the chief capitalizes on the injustice of college football is ESPN is the television networks and so we're compromised. We're not impartial on this one what I would simply ask you to do. Is. Ask yourself the question do you trust all of these coaches and teams and businesses that aren't actually amateurism to do this testing correctly and be transparent about the health of their players like you? Yes or because I don't, I don't trust all these people who are going to be making the money to do this in a way that's clean when I'm reading reports at a Colorado state that they're. Circumventing stop and that should scare you if you care at all about what I'm about to say, which is no matter where you stand on this stupidly politicized issue because everything in America now is a politicized issue. No matter where you stand on it this is so and it's so from science to echoing beyond, we do not know the damage. This thing is actually doing to people long term. And so if you're messing around with the hearts of young people and you're sending them into the fray for your money, that should make you a little squeamish. It is certainly easier to err on the side of caution and you've seen what's happened with the idea of airing on the side of caution. This is a victory for Donald, trump, that the big that the big ten is coming back, that's a victory. That's something that he's going to take credit for because in a swing state, he got their beloved college football back and I just ask you without being hysterical without being sitting here being someone. Who is going to talk about the politics of everything that's happening here I'm simply telling you that as you listen to this, we don't actually know the damage. This thing is doing in in people. It's not killing right and I don't trust the people who are governing shamateurism to do this correctly in a way. That's not greedy. That is morally sound because why would why would you trust them to do it in a way? That's not like who does trust them to do it in a way that's not greedy and morally sound. Well, what do you say to the kids who were adequate very Vocal. Like, Hey, we wanna play just in fields. All those guys don't let the kids make this decision. Don't I mean what are you saying that those? What do you say to the kids that were adamant about getting money for playing in the PAC twelve I say they should have got money they should sit until they get the real powers to God's. That's the thing like they don't actually have power they can make a stink and everything else but the business will shift to get back into the business of making money will get back to what is it's normal over the objections the cries. You care about the kids only when you agree with them, you know why a lot of broadcasters are not calling the games from the actual locations they're doing a from remote locations part of that is safety. You could argue that a lot of that is because it's expensive to test people it's really expensive and college football now in the Big Ten and the PAC twelve, what's being discussed is rapid daily tests that is very expensive hugely expensive but it tell you realize resource. That happened, but they can't mobilize those resources to what they're doing it to protect more money. My that's what they're doing. They're spending a great deal of money. This is the thing that's infuriating to make money. This is the thing that's infuriating about how obviously a business it is. How do you not see how obviously business it is an amateurism? It's not a dot org it's not a charitable institution it's not sis boom Bah. Title Nine paying for the other programs it's a giant business that pays largely white administrators a great amount of money on the bodies of black people but I think people recognize that it was a business before the pandemic. Now more people certainly do it is certainly shined a light on it like never before I think it's a business but people the public want their feel-good Damn. That's what they want. They want their feel good and Ohio. State Michigan and big ten football make a whole lot of people feel good. selfishly that's all they care I want my feel good too. But I just say now make it your son. And your heart issues for your son that are unknown I want my good to have kids. Give me sports more sports keep giving me sports. I'm one issue I'm a one issue voter on this. Please just keep giving me sports great for my business. I do nothing but consume sports like this is a great great prophet for everybody involved around us to have sports live and vibrant. It helps our economy it does not. I'm not totally sure I'm not totally sure if there hadn't been college football if people on this show wouldn't have lost their jobs because of how perilous the situation is with needing to make money in this economy but make it your kid and now how do you feel about it just answer the question I, don't know I'm not a parent I don't know answer the question for yourself. I mean I've coached my kid this summer in the Cross tournaments and I can tell you safely that I have felt anxious nervous about doing. So at not certain I'm doing the right thing to your question is my kid lane six and a half. Pay. That man he's money. It's hugely interesting. It really is. It's fascinating even if you don't care about sports and just are interested in sort of the, you know business mechanisation I just like exploring my own hypocrisy because yeah, I don't think it's right that they're not getting paid. I'M NOT GONNA do anything about it. I'm going to be watching every. You're getting paid six and a half again. Ben Let's keep it going. It's working out well for you. Yeah. It's unfair. What do you mean Virginia Tech's playing this week. Oh No Commonwealth Cup. Let's make it up. That's right. I got the raging page in special team. There's some odd games out there man it's hard to find a couple of lives that you like have. You noticed that. Have I noticed? The game between opponents that you care about how you're talking about the best we got was notre, Dame Duke, Byu name every some beauties this weekend. Oh. Yeah. You Got Byu name. You didn't get Byu the next week though because Kobe. Yeah, there is that but. So fifteen minutes from now we will have the unveiling the dramatic unveiling of our BCS rankings, the Billy Chris and STU. Gods rankings. How does this work? I can't really call them pre season rankings you're going to be doing it based off of largely week one year wall, the first couple of weeks and and projecting forward a little bit because this is a weird season you never know when the seasons could end and so we just figured let's on role. Let's unveil the BCS standings early this year. So we're doing it based off of the first two weeks of the college football season and checkout journalists, Dan Holding you to a higher standard than the actual AP. ACS Billy Chris and stugatz rankings are coming up in fifteen minutes yet. Dan We go by what we saw the first couple of weeks of the season and the rest of it we go with our gut Okay. So there are teams that haven't played on there probably have to say I just wanted to go right now. Any is say that that makes it fishy in any sort of way. Have you seen the AP top twenty five right now there's plenty of teams that are not playing reckon that things out of here. So a twitter person writes in and this is old fart one, two three is the. Also also, part of his twitter Avatar not surprisingly is Colorado truck driver Guy Okay you ready course. Wow. You almost made it through one hour without Dan bashing the white man. Bash. The White Man I gave you the statistical fact that off of College Sports Large College Sports. It's statistically. So it's empirical the people who make the most money are the white administrators like that's not bashing you Mr Old Fart one, two three. That's just not Ronald truck driver guy it's not I'm just telling you that what is so that the injustice that there isn't college sports where they pay people in books when they don't pay you and books for being a Colorado truck driver guy although I'd like to see that Mr old fart one, two, three I'd like to see them pay you in books at the end of. Your Colorado trucking experience and see how that one goes They pay the kids in but they most assuredly don't pay nick saving that way you drive that truck from coast to coast across the country and when you get there. So one hand, you a book, a text book, a book you don't even WanNa read. It's not like bonfire the vanities it's just like a book about. Whitewashed. History Book of some sort. Of A free book. Psych one one. You know what I just made it a whitewash history book and damage again in eight years I failed to get through an hour without blaming the white man I. Almost was there. I almost got there, and here we are at the end of the hour and another hour goes in the books where failed. To successfully do an hour of sports talk radio without blaming the white man. We blamed a white woman here earlier in the hour about that for equality. Progress people. Evolution. Kendrick Perkins was on with US Yesterday. You guys really liked him. We've got game two of Celtics and he tonight, and that means we get to play this not the by you Wilko's by explosive. I love that. You will by. It's true. There's no. He wear the lies, show him out of the by you well, coast by eggs. How does this work with? He'd fans because you expect long series and if you expect a long series that means you probably expect to lose tonight but I find with he'd fans and fans in general when they expect a long series, they also expect to win every single game which doesn't make any sense, and if you ask them before any game even up three Oh or you're going to win or you'RE GONNA lose I'm GonNa win today even though I expect a long series, it's a house. Bunny game before they take the computerized goes and switch them and put the heat logos on the floor. So he could feel good regardless of the result tonight that I but absurd certain he'd fans have gotten selfish to a point where I think Dan is right. are a neutral floor with no fans you're expecting to win just about every the way this team is playing they're playing so well, and they've only lost one game here in the post kind of what kind of favourite is Boston Maybe, I think because you've got a situation here with the Boston Celtics where they aren't any more experience than the Miami Heat. In this situation, you look at these teams in these rosters you could say and you'd be right that Jason Tatum is the best player on the floor. But when you look at both of these teams next to each other, you're not finding appreciable differences between what they're good at and what they're bad at their very small differences whatever the differences are and on any night when shots are going in either team is. GonNa end up winning the game when the shots go in Celtics are by is two and a half tonight two and a half playoff experience one is is difficult because Jason. TATUM is already been new in eastern conference. Final, this core has been through several playoff series Brad. Stevens has also gone through several playoff series, but if you look individual players, all Miami was more playoff experienced. Andrei with Jay crowder has loads of playoff experience. It's really the the young guys came tyler hero continue to do that throughout an entire series being twenty years old. But the young guys are twenty, two year old Jason. TATUM WHO's already played. In an a bunch of these but. What good I'm just curious. Jr Smith had plenty of playoff experience when he forgot the score of finals. Game. He did. A ton he was in those situations all the time and he managed to forget the score. Lebron. Had plenty when he forgot how to post up. Jj Berea. I. Don't I. You. We did this with the spurs for a long time. Every time they would lose they were an old team every time they'd win they were an experienced team but that can't be one of the advantages in this series that's not allowed Kemba Walker failing all the time in the playoffs isn't allowed to count as great playoff experience for Kemba Walker, at the time the Gardanne. The new BCS ranking yes. Billy Chris and STU gods it's coming up next.

PC's the Dan lebatardshow with this two cats podcasts. Reese Davis has joined the Zoom Chad I. See the producers are a little bit starstruck awed swooning a bit. He does indeed look like a Disney prince will go to him in a second. I don he has an aged I don't understand how that's possible regardless Christine Lisi because the sports updates, our sacred we have to get the end finally from Christine Lisi in our segment of the show instead of the Sacred Cathedral of the sports update. So here we go. And finally, crocodiles can go through as many as eight thousand teeth over a lifetime Thank you Christine. We appreciate the way we appreciate the way that these delight you reese David thank you for joining us Sir what the hell man what is going on in your sport like what is that like what? I don't understand how you who's in charge. Well that's a good question Dan and the answer is there are several commissioners in charge and the one thing that I pointed out as disjointed as this has been an lied in the pandemic and people wanting to see unity. Having different leaders in each conference in each conference, attending to their own interest and keeping it outside the as per you in that regard as Serb college football really well over the last thirty years or so financially particularly. But in moments like this, you would like to have seen a little more cohesion. Or cooperation among those five top. Do you have a side that you take because you can be pretty neutral? You are fair. You take a side we all WanNa see college football and I think we can all agree that America doesn't exactly with its behavior around this virus deserve sports of any kind but we have a lot of money and a lot of money to get. So we throw it up this like no, that can't be disputed. We were terrible about handling the virus. We don't deserve sports. We all want sports though so which side you fall on. On on the side of the says that we don't deserve to have nice things I sure don't fall on that side. There's no question ned in that. This could have been much better. But I I can this I think if it can be played safely, I'm not trying to be neutral, Dan I've done recognizing that medical professionals can have different interpretations of different diagnoses just as it might happen you you're I went for a second third opinion. No one wants to see anyone get sick from this. No one wants to see a college team in any sport beat a becker for a spread. But there, there is data that shows in your state and others that some of the cases are improving. If they can do that, maybe we can play I'm still not sure about having these big crowds in better outdoors than than indoors. But these teams are operating in quasi bubble anyway almost without exception at least among the teams that have remained in their code infection rates have improved over the course after. After reporting back camps. So I fall on the side of if it can be done safely I think they should be able to. resear- we headed towards the place where I know Five Commissioner Separate Commissioners Assertive College football very very well in the power five ces but we headed towards the place where one person is in ours. There's one commissioner one voice making decisions for everyone. Okay. Let me tell you this guy and I've been skeptical but my friend item as Allen I don't want to steal his idea without giving improper do so I will take the idea that I had and Ivan. Made. So eloquent now it using the phrase of a question. In any walk of life. When is the last time? You saw someone willingly give up power Question no answer. Okay. Not not very often. So I think this idea that everybody's GonNa say, my goodness this has been disjointed. Let's get a commissioner. Or a czar or whatever it might be someone over the commissioner. They're certainly not going to see his power VNC AA. That at all. Might there be some mechanism to lead to greater cooperation in the future maybe, but they cooperated fairly well in in warming the College Football playoff still obviously all attending to their own interests but It remains to be seen. I don't think that this is absolutely situations situation. Well. We must have one person in charge because that means a lot of. People conferences powers giving up their power and someone who I don't know how they be convinced totally their best interest for being sir. When you see the divide that we have now just among the power five cop Guillermo, put it on the poll. Would you be okay with Reese Davis getting all the power and just going ahead and running college football for all of that would be okay. Because you're fair and also you are incredibly power hungry Davis with US ON ESPN radio Colorado state quietly because it's Colorado state, some awful things seem to be happening over there. If you believe the report if that Kinda stuff is happening at Colorado state a nowhere program race like how dirty is the sport if the USA. Today. Report is true on what was happening at Lsu here where. Darius Geiss is You know accused of a couple of rapes and it's according to USA Today it's going to administrators and they're not doing anything. How dirty is this thing that we love? That would if that is completely true and false item untold obviously, it's attains. In contact with people who have some knowledge of that situation there those who Contend that the coaching staff anyway was not necessarily aware of those allegations against guys. I'm not here say that's right or wrong I'm just saying someone close to the situation. That would follow protocol if it were title nine investigation, you know we all know that occasionally those get late there's bad stuff that happens in everything Dan they're certainly bad actors in in college football there's been cheating for as long as this existed understands this no one condones it. It's just happened. This is far more serious than that. Obviously the dirtiest guy situation particularly, but as it pertains to the pandemic. Every program on not in the meetings every day. Obviously they're gonNA. Tell me put the best foot forward when I talked to people close to the I I get that sort of the nature of the of the business. But they've been most of the players were all the players in the program's spoken to have been told that you're not comfortable. You know step out you can step back. You can go home no penalty, I I, know that there is. Disagreement over that with the player Washington state not too long ago. But by and large I, don't think these programs can afford to hide poor behavior as it relates to the pandemic because we've seen example after example, after example, in this off season that if people aren't shooting straight with the players, the players are going to use their voice. Now, that's a good thing. In that can help clean up a lot of the situations that you're talking about dependent as released a Darius Guide situation. That's a that's a much more horrific in heinous thing and if that if any of that is true, if anyone looked the other way, then those those people should be held accountable and and no, and not spared at all as result of. Race I feel like we're celebrating the wrong conferences. By for dinner with my wife and I, am nervous. I something doesn't feel right about it. Should I be doing this? Am I supposed to be doing this? I think with the big ten impact twelve when. They made the truly difficult unpopular decision and there's know hundreds of millions of dollars at stake. There's a reason they made that decision not the decision they wanted to make yet the conferences we are celebrating the ones that the side of the play I am the big ten in the pack twelve made the responsible decision based on the uncertainty and based on where we're at with this bad Democrat now but it's a reasonable tape but the one thing I would point out is that. All three conferences in particularly Greg Sankey who I think is has been very good leader. In all of this, he'd never wanted to the the SEC is playing at any cost. He said, we are taking steps toward being able to him. We hope that is the case. So they're continuing on a step by step protocol they. Pushed. The start season back to the end of September in order to see how things go on campus and all of those types of things. So I don't know accelerates the right word I think you can come to reasonable decision on both sides I don't think that the big. Hesitant to play was unreasonable certainly unfortunate unfortunate layers in the fans and those have been the conference who obviously differed with that decision but it's not unreasonable to take these precautions by the same token, the medical professionals, many of whom are also being relied upon by professional sports who are planning to play and the other three conferences. Think that the risk can be mitigated to the point that they can play without bringing, undo a risk or harm upon the players. That just seems to be a difference in in opinion of how the is handled by young people how they committed spread with these i. know they don't like the term. Basically these are wide bubbles that that the most of these teams are operating right now. So I don't look at it necessarily at this point of being a right or wrong decision particularly when the conferences. Who are still pursuing playing in my judgment have been pretty careful about saying we're taking steps toward playing. We plan to play hoped to play the they said that they're playing it. Any call race were totally out of time. We've ruined the clock here, but just two quick questions, quick answers your hair does it have a lot of wonderful expensive gelling it right now now? Just leftover from yesterday I've got to go work out half. Okay. Not at the moment. Okay. Second question how do you keep that smile sparkling that way. Well I don't have an endorsement deal with the particular toothpaste, but I would say, just make sure you use your electric toothbrush floss and do all those things you need to do. Good dental hygiene. Thank you some life advice with reese. Davis we went very serious some college football whenever you want to come on and just give them morsel of life advice like that would be happy to take it flaws kids. Thank you. We appreciate your time. This is radio, right? Okay. Moving on three three times. If you missed any of the show. You can listen to all three hours of the Dan, Le Batard show plus our Miami, only hour and the big Sui on demand in the ESPN APP ED subscribe to eleven targeted friends podcast network featuring south beach sessions to potty mystery grape please rate ed subscribed new episodes of posted every week wherever you get your podcast Dan, it's time for straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless speaking of which I did want to help the audience with some of the changes there have been around here. A tweeter has written in. We've had a lot of audio difficulties this week. Why is God's microphones so much louder than everyone else's on TV broadcast? Is there any way to fix that I'm constantly having to adjust the volume during the show? We've had a ton of technical difficulties and I don't think anybody's manning us over on. ESPN news. So I would say, don't watch it that way because it's not nobody nobody's paying attention to what's happening with the television product But if you WANNA, see off today or at least watch the game between the heat and the Pacers today you will have an opportunity to do so on. Twitch Tony tell the people how they can do that. If you're part of this laboratory infringe universe if you're frustrated by the fact that you can't get us on television, we'll sort of try and do it ourselves to the best that we can on twitch today. So how is this GonNa Work Tony? What's the information people need if at one o'clock today they want to watch heat pacers with us. Or we're going to put it on the social media handles at Lebatardshow and if you WANNA go natively and find it on twitch twitch, dot TV slash lebatardshow, and friends all one word I'm. So we'll be there hanging out for the majority of the game and we'll get to some shenanigans all right and so some people are writing in here like somebody tweeted into God's shortening this show by an hour is incredibly short sighted and has hurt the continuity and quality of that program If that is your complaint and I've been getting some of that this week I understand and I ask you to just give us a little time to figure out. How? We're going to do all this stuff because on top of just having done it for three days so far we've also had unholy audio issues all week also faulty premise. The show is an shortened it short on terrestrial radio in the national format but you're actually getting we've done the math getting a lot more show now daily a lot too much probably given our audio difficulties, but that's not how it's going to be the entire time. We don't want you to always be chasing the show. We understand why you enjoyed listening to all three hours live. We are trying to pivot not by choice, an hour was taken away and so we are stumbling around. On the treadmill a little bit trying to figure it out we ask for your patience but we're telling you like today you watch game with us on twitch. That's not something we do a whole lot of. So if you want with the show to sort of watch the game virtually with us, you'll be able to do that. We haven't done this before we're going to try it I'm sure we're GONNA, screw it up and a number of different ways and I'm sure you will enjoy those screw ups because they are a hallmark of everything that we do around here speaking of screw ups. We've gotta get to this Brennaman story again because I don't think. That you get this combination, Stu gods of serious and stupid in the same place, very often serious and funny serious and silly because you've got both here you could discuss this story very seriously by talking about the damage done by ant-, anti, gay, slurs, and language of the sort, or you can spend a lot of time laughing at just the total awkwardness in the apology that couldn't have gone worse because you've got a hall of fame broadcaster from a hall of Fame Broadcasting Family his voices baseball his name is baseball. You've got this guy apologizing in the middle of the game and feeling the need to give play by play of what happens in the worst thing. Happens while he's in his apology, a dude hits a home run, and so you get sambre apology about serious thing mixed with sombre sad homerun called the saddest homerun call in the history of Homerun. Call. Police things off Jim Day's GonNa be taken us the rest of the way through this game. As Holland takes over on the mound. I made a comment earlier tonight that I guess went out over the year that I am deeply. Ashamed of. If I have heard anyone out there. I can't tell you how much I saved from the bottom of my heart. I'm so very, very sorry. I pride myself and think of myself as. A man of faith. As here's a drive in a deep. So it'd be a home run. Sorry. And so that'll make four nothing ballgame I'm sorry. I don't know if I'd be putting on his headset again. I don't know if it's going to be for the reds. From my boss' at Fox apologize for the people who signed my turn that down we'll hear the rest of it. He apologized a whole bunch of people in the wrong order. He's probably got a let the run call go there right? Off. Yes. Yes. That would have made it funding though I'm just telling you the awkward comedic time. There are a number of things that are funny here including The ball sailing into judgment free zone sponsored judgment free zone in a game being played only because baseball is grabbing dollars. I pride myself in think of myself as A. A man of faith. As you drive in a deep listening by Kosti. Listen, the timing you can't write that better listen to the crash. Combined with the perfect sentence of thinking of yourself as a man of faith and when you hear the crack of this back, I pride myself and think of myself as A. Man Of. Faith. Driving a diesel fuel by Costa. Janos it will be a home run. That is straight talk it is brought to you by straight talk wireless no contract no compromise. These show aim free time for some ads. Mike what is the courtesy I've gotta give on that sound played Fox. Sports Ohio. Now I'm not. A rare time where we're doing mccurdy, they don't want the courtesy. All right more bonus sports update from Christine Lisi. GimMe that Banger. Or not. And sorry I'm sorry Christine Mutsu, God's because I've only been telling him for six months to mute as microphone every time we come back. And finally, chipotle goes through about two hundred, fifty, thousand pounds of Avocados every day which. I don't write these by the way is almost as much as Dan ways. You don't know Lotta. Christine listen you're going to need to shape up around here because I'm not going to shape up. Shape and you've got to do better than that. Do not soften those you. You have to do this very you have to come in strident and you have to kill me and you have to read what's red. They're just like Scotts did accept more professional. Exactly right mistake number two for you. Yeah. Yes mistakes. Yes. All Right Christine. Thank you for being on with us as always Thank you to finish as well. The only thing from that microphone that sounds good. Today we're going to get to what you're. You'RE GONNA object to that with a grunt. What are you GONNA object to? Claiming the I I I would say the first couple of segments agree with you I knowledge die sounded terrible. Perhaps I'll. Show. You, know I did I yelled at you. Pointed but then as the as the day wore on the voice came back and since about ten thirty, this morning, it's been relatively flawless. So I'm going to start speaking a half hour before the show moving forward to myself just walking around giving tastes got you've been doing this for twenty years like I mean twenty years and the boys voices is the one thing you got to protect guts. I. Got Explain something to the audience. You've got a great radio voice like an old fashioned. You had one you had a great radio voice and it's no longer in its prime. It's got life experience. I can here in it it's got heaters. It's got regret I can hear all that stuff. It's got sleeping issues. It's got not taking care of its body because it's eating peanut. Peanut EMINEM's an ice cream at at midnight I can hear it. Art Well I'm Gonna I'M GONNA take measures to try to try again fixed I'm GONNA eat ice cream at ten instead of his night Chris what are you laughing at what are you laughing at you? You don't want me to bring this up anymore I'm just imagining Stugatz later on like polio ruler out and like measuring something like, Oh, I got this Dan, I'll take care of it. Yeah. I scream. and. Ends a little bit earlier than normal. Still, not to exercise but I again, I will address this and trying to take it seriously perhaps T-. Okay. So getting to what you guys were laughing about during the break what did you hear from those NBA press conference? Is that? Had you guys laughing I thought you guys were making that up that can't be true that Donovan Mitchell actually said something about we're just happy to get a split. As if he was going back home and getting on a flight like that, that couldn't have been he just went to go to cliche. Yet they did their job. They got one of the first two on the road and yes, Mitchell is acting like they're hopping on a jet going back to Salt Lake City for a big game three. He's walking back to his hotel and then walking to the same court they played games wanted to one just with different stickers at. The notion that this is real or feels like the real NBA playoffs I'm into it, the players are into it, but they are speaking in cliches that make me happy but they also make me. Laugh. Now they do kind of have a point though both teams do get to sleep in their own hotel bed tonight. So that is one thing that they all have going for them. It's the case Dan where everybody gets to sleep in their own bed and nobody gets to sleep in their own bed. Wow. You're so right. That is so true billy. So. What were some of the things they were? Can you explain to me what the specifics were of Donovan Mitchell and what he said you're telling me that he said we've got the split as if like that's not. That's not what happened where he is. He forgetting that there's not travel that he does not know that getting the split in the first two games doesn't really matter if you don't have like does he know what are you guys alleging here? No, you need to get the split, Dan if you're the road team because in home courts back in your favor and I think. Also kind of said like we got we need wanted to, that's all we need to get done I'm pretty sure that they think they need to win one of two road games to get the advantage in the series. I mean Brad Stevens said we held serve. That's all we did. These kinds are going to the same push as why wait a minute? True You have to be a because I'm not listening to any of these press conferences what what? Billy? Seventy sixers are also down. So I don't think that Brett Brown actually said we got one of two because they didn't get one of two I thought you were saying that he was saying we've gotta get one of two that he was saying before the game as if during the pre-game press conference because you love going for useless sound at a Brett Brown, a press conference of Dan. Now, they've got to get four or five they want to advance. Thanks for nothing. Thank you. I I. DO appreciate that it has next to nothing to do with what I'm talking about. But I do think these guys are so wired to Kinda say flitwick and gotta go out of the same way where some of that is coming out me billy Chris, just find it funny that there is no homecourt. They're just courts with different stickers. That's it. Are. We sure that they aren't going with the strategy of where they have hotel room they sleep in. That's really nice when they're home team. When they're road team, they have to sleep at a different hotel room. That's just like the worst possible hotel room you could possibly be maybe that's the case. That's a terrible idea. I don't understand guts. One of the worst things you've said in a long library of awful things that you said like, what are you talking about? Dan Talking about ridiculous premise here, and we're saying that if they want to create some sort of home court advantage in this bubble, they could make the road team sleep in tough scenarios in the bubble safely, which is not as good as when. You know what I think. This is actually a great idea. Know what they should do think when this is done, what they need to do is and we'll do this for next season because this season it seems that we figured it out but the policies to be working. So maybe they'll do it again next year but with improvement. So what they could do next year is when you're GONNA travel on a travel day, just put on like one of those Disney Trans or even the monorail and just have them going around in circles at the region of flake like. A six hour flight across the country you just need to ride around the moderate six hours then. You did the traveling. Six Our All. Right I WANNA explore this part of it a little bit more because I thought you guys were headed down the path of the making the road team like sleep in a cave with a bear or something just to stimulate things. We've that to. All right we'll explore that and more brennaman laughter I. Suppose Manx. Tony One more time. Please tell the people we are going off the air here in a few minutes but tell the people where they can join us after our lunch at one o'clock eastern Heap Pacers where can people find us tell them slowly? Which DOT TV slash Lebatardshow and friends again, that's twitch dot TV slash laboratory fronts. So we will be there stugatz included Fleming Stugatz in his natural environment watching a game. If you WANNA watch a game with US last last few years for the Jimmy V. Foundation Somebody's paid a whole lot of money to watch games with us we're doing this on twitch For no cost totally free virtually self promotion yet all in an effort to promote the Dan Le Batard show with Stugatz podcasts already one of the most popular podcast and the history of sports talk radio. We're doing a lot of things with visit digital push. So this is interaction with the fans that we promise and just to get you back to subscribing and listening daily. Little Must Win for the Pacers today. Dan. You want to go back to Miami down to. I, guess. Yeah, I guess they would. They would be. Stupid. All of it the quality I did think that Stan van. Gundy was interesting. The quality of place to God's I hadn't considered the idea rested guys focusing one hundred percent on basketball that would explain the skill level. I'm seeing in these games where the shootings, crazies God's like guys who are just covering beyond what's reasonable guy I had not taken into account the idea i. Hadn't thought of the idea that flying all over the place over eighty two game season. The guys aren't going to be a sharp that if you put them in a bubble without the kinds of temptations and nightlife that they would normally have, you're absolutely getting a fresher specimen at the height of physical performance science. That's why you're getting what you're getting from Lillard and it seems so clean. Right. Yeah. Offense the offense has been great. The defense has not been. Nearly as good and then you combine that with the fact that these guys you had three months off. So in some cases, you have different rosters you have guys who have been able to rest. You have guys who've been able to practice of again offensively it looks really really good. He's really really good. I disagree with you I don't think the defense is bad. The reason I'm noticing that the offense is so great is because I'm looking at the defense I'm like damn that was good defense to and it doesn't matter because these guys can keep making shots making shots I, don't actually think the defense has been bad. I think the level of play. I'm watching is better than any of I've ever seen. I'm not kidding you when I say playoff basketball in a bubble what I'm seeing on the court looks to me more skilled than anything. I've ever seen while watching basketball and I hadn't considered the idea that fresh legs without any distractions whatsoever that it would make a huge difference in the quality of play. We, need to figure out how scale this. So ever after every playoff game, Dan will give us a rating that game was played at a seven out of ten and his name was played at an eight of ten. So we know after a game level of play that we just witnessed. We do like the idea like the road team right the team does not have home court advantage. There has to be some disadvantage for the road to we're thinking that may be home team sleep in the hotel road teams at the sleep out in some sort of tent city like something like that. You got to make it more difficult for the road team you have to. I mean but like all the accommodations at Disney are pretty good right like what are you doing? You're making a tent city like what? What are you know? No, no Dan. They have a camping ground and Disney we think that the road team could have to stay at Fort Wilderness and they have to camp out and obviously they're on the road. So what happens when you're on the Road Dan, you don't get cooking. So they're going to have to eat a little bit less than some of the food that you get at the nicer home hotels. Now, this kind of goes back to Christmas, original idea where people were moving back and forth. But that's why look is going to be a lot of teams on the move Dan. Each around less and less seems around the move because I don't know if you know each round, we lose some teams. So have the monorails of play, but we're also going to bring some of the trams into play. So if someone were to get into the bubble, they may be confused as to why it is that there's tranches. Kinda doing wheelies figure eights around around the parking lot travel days. That's all we can say. Some of these ideas. I love. Like. After after game, you see for six hours on a tram just de'andre Jordan. Is He in uniform? Do you have him in uniform? Dumb Baba close.

I Finally Got Paid So Here's The First Podcast

"So I spent the entire weekend. Go aiding ESPN. I am laid to this podcast party lebatardshow, friends and ounce Hayes, and you know, he announced hers even though she already had one. But now it's on the lebatardshow France at thirty number one on I tunes, and I got jealous. And so I wanted to get my podcast up and running up. I spent the tire weekend. Go sheeting with the suits that were down here from ESPN. And luckily, they came to the table with a couple more zeros not as many zeros as I wanted but a couple of more zero. So I am not locked into doing something that I have no earthly idea how to do. And that's when I go to Mike, Mike, how the hell do I do a podcast? It's the week of we got Super Bowl coming up. Right wanted to launch this week. We talked about it to maximize the ears that could be available to us as it's one of the biggest sporting weeks of the year. Right. And you didn't give this any thought. No, nope. No thought the only thing I get thought to was how many zeros can I get you know, for them to have me do this. That's the only thing I was thinking about it. I wasn't thinking about once they agreed to terms once I agreed to terms what I was going to do with the actual pockets. No. I did not think that far ahead. You know, me Mike, you know, what to think about? So this might happen. I realized quickly that I don't have time for really any of this. Right. Can be here with you in spirit. Sometimes I can actually physically be here with you. Right. But I don't have much to give. Okay. But I thought about you, and I brought in a producer who super quality. Okay. From one of your favorite shows it out of here. I got dynamite. Dan stance. Are you kidding me? Yeah. He's gonna produce for weight. So Stanford is gonna produce this podcast. In addition. To his responsibilities and roles for golick and wingo, you left golick and wingo for you stands. What's the matter with you on this? We Stu I was told you ask for me. Is that true? I did as for you. I didn't ask for you to leave Golic and wingo. I just ask for you to do this in conjunction with responsibilities for Golic and wingo. 'cause Don you're right now standing you leaving that for this. I won't be doing this for more than six months. Keep in mind. None of those for you. You are not getting paid any extra to do this. I'm happy to have you board. I am thrilled to have you board. If I could choose one of our guys might Billy Chris ROY any of the guys I would go with Stanic, and I got him. But I believe you'll have golick and wingo to do this. I mean, crazy. So I'm like your fifth option. I guess this is kind of a stupid decision by me. Stupidity. I said that to be nice because the guys are sitting right here to be honest with you. They're all city, right? That Chris ROY Billy's. So I just said it be nice. I didn't really. All right stands. Listen to be now. Mike knows about me. And you need to know it as well. In fact, I probably shoulda told you this before you let go of Wayne go because I don't. Oh, how it's gonna sit with you. But Abby is my confident. Okay. And she is going to be one of the executive producers on this show, and she's going to co host many parts of this show with me. She just is I need her. And listen, here's the worst thing. Not only does she not work standing. She doesn't work wall spending our money. So I figured what I'm gonna do here. Okay. Is have her work only for no other reason? So it's one hour a week where she's not spending my money at Zappa's dot com. Got it who the hell is Abby. And what the hell my doing? That's the that's my wife. She's the Boston. Oh, great. I know she's already on the line. And that's that's just fantastic. I'm so happy this stance problem. All right. So I'm excited about this. I have no earthly idea what we're gonna do. But I am excited. I have no idea. How long we're gonna do it. I just know that gonna do it with Abby. So I have some ideas. I wanna put you guys. Okay. I wanna pitch. Are you ready for this and you too, okay? These are is that I'm very excited about. I'm figuring new podcast lebatardshow friends network. Okay. Meena Cobb shot right to number one Lebed art has south beat sessions, by the way, I want Palm Beach session. Just so, you know, I am lobbying for Palm Beach sessions because like to prove to the world that I am the same caliber interviewers. Dan, fat my guesses. Those gas will have more fun with meat, and they have with them about that. But anyway, hear is what I'm thinking for. I guest of the new podcast is a big week. We're logic. I'm thinking the goat. I'll think Michael Jordan, Mike. He's not serious. He needs to be a little bit more realistic than this. We can't you just realize that you wanted to do podcast. He can't go top line. Michael Jordan, had anything else in mind and anything at all that might work. Well, in terms of guest, or in terms of other ideas. I mean guest I was thinking, Michael Jordan. I don't really think of anyone else. I just thought I'm Jay. I mean, there is nobody else Q like the jets wanting to talk with the jets coach, he seems a little more attainable than actually makes sense. Happy to have you. That's actually a good idea. I let's talk imaging because I'm thinking all right again, new podcast. We need a legendary voice, we need a big voice of blooming voice. Okay. I wanted to sound like a million bucks. I'm thinking to work. He Jackson now. One might be tough too. Because I got two words for you. He's dead heath Jackson's dead. Whoa. Nelly. You like, Mike and Mike. Why don't you get greedy greedier goal to do the voices not bad idea? Pretty good. When you think we can get them. You know, what he's actually probably gettable to he reads. Really? Well, it'd be a good voice. I like that idea guys. I need help though. Okay. 'cause I gotta fill every week. I gotta fill like thirty forty minutes every single week. I have no idea how to do this Abbes. The only ones adjusting good ideas. My ears are awful. How the hell we gonna do this? With your friends like talk Jess with Mike ET or fantasy with fern. Oh, that should definitely be a part of it. Good ideas. I'm gonna be honest with you Mike ET in furnace. Danny me. I mean, I need this thing to be likable. None of those guys are likable. What makes me likeable is? I'm sitting next to a gas bag every single day on the show. A none of these people are likable. What do I do? I have a weekly roll it shouldn't essentially just star eight I'm getting paid for this. Right. Your your. So when you talk money, not when you're spending money when you're talking about earning money, you are. Anyway, I'm beginning to realize that this is going to be a lot of work. So have you have every right to ask for more money? In fact, right after this episode, I'm going to ask for more money because I'm tired of doing this. But I got like thirty or forty minutes ago here. I have no idea what to talk about even though it Super Bowl this week. What are we going to discuss? Why didn't you just wake Paik people like that you like that that'd be abbey? Brilliant idea. I gotta tell you. You are hot when ask you for more money, even hotter. When coming up with good ideas that have me doing less of the work around here. That's why I love you. That's why I married you about that. All right. I mean, you're always thinking dollars. It says you thinking about how can we make the most about a money without Stu doing any of the work? And that's what I love about my wife. So with that being said might hit that day music. It is waking take here odd stoop potty, my new podcast. I have thought I have opinions. I have no I have news. I'll share them all with you. That's what I should do. But I'm not because that's not how we do it here. All weak-, take you got a call in to ask the right questions. And if you do perhaps, you will get some of my thoughts, my -pinion news notes things going on in the world sports outside. But first, we interview fat, Chris still get you. Good. Good. Good. Good. Good. Good. Dan. You good. I'm good. Where's AL's housing there? Good someone else that they're. I'm good. Allison, you good, right? I mean Goodwin. Go you good. Like that. Right. I did you believe he left golick wing go to come this mess anyway back Chris they game coming up big. And I'm wondering are you do that thing that everyone else seems to be doing? I warned him before the AFC championship game. Don't do it. Why? Because I care about do not go against the patriot. I sense knowing you the way that I do that. You think the Rams are going to win this football game? I do I'm doing it. Don't do it. I care about. Don't do it. I have the patriots thirty four Rams wanting. How about that? Billy, my sense is you're going to do that same exact thing and care about you little less than I care about Chris. But I still care about on the less. It seems like you're gonna go with the patriots. Doable. Don't go with the patriot. Billy, don't do it. I'm going to do it. You're going to go with the patriots. Don't do what I care about. Don't do. It. Don't do. Boy. He's going with the patriots. That's what you want them to potty. Don't do it. Bill. Just don't do a morning. You're right now. This Rams team is. Good. I said at one point probably three different times throughout the season of the Rams with the best team in football. I said it at one don't do it probably three different thing. I did. But at one time. What I'm saying? No, are you. I'm good. You good. Are you show your? Okay. So you go Rams or patriots. Because I'm feeling like the Rams of the most talented team in the NFL, and the Rams are gonna blow them out about that. I have Rams thirty four patriots. Anyway, Bill you get. I'm good. All right. So where are you going in? Where am I going talking? Are you taking the game Bill for friends? You go produce, golick and wingo. Right here. Do you like going to ram? Don't do it. Care about do you like in the game? The Rams don't do it. I think I'm going to do it. I don't care about you. And I'm still telling you don't do it. I got the patriots thirty four to three over the Rams about that. So you're doing it. I'm confused. I'm doing it. But then I'm not doing it. And then I'm doing what you've been telling people not to do that against the patriots. And I'm doing all. All right that you shouldn't be doing. Thanks call. Let's go out to Perry Perry. Go ahead. You're on wake. You take your party Corey? I it's carry off to a good start. Oh, it's Kerry. Go ahead. I mean, listen, it's not my fault that ROY put it up there as pets two dollar five. For me. I'm blending ROY. Glenn we pay the fine, but I can read fairly, but I can read it says Perry not carry. Reading from the balmy two degrees of northern fall. First of all. I'm wondering what it would take to down through falls in the summer. It says it's only two degrees right now. And it will probably say that way for a few months, and then seconds, if you don't mind, I'm a disgruntled Knicks fan, and I'm thinking disgruntled next band last night Hannah main mccrone a little we should just abandon ship. Thanks for the call. Appreciate it. Do I think we should abandoned ship. I think Durant's go to the next day. Listen, if Durant wants to write everything that he's done wrong, and he's done plenty wrong. In fact, he's ruined the NBA he'll go to a team like New York and play as where garden at a win that team a championship. And if he does that he's the greatest player of all talk. Now as far as soon falls is concerned. And if he does it up telling you, he's the laziest player of all time because what he did. It's an atrocity what he did what he did. This is not what sports are supposed to be about. They're not absorbed. You're not supposed to fail and because you've failed at couldn't beat the Golden State Warriors with Russell Westbrook, by the way up three. One in that series since you couldn't beat them with Russ, you left Russ and you join the team that you couldn't beat. And that's not what sports is all about him. Sorry now exports is all about is leaving those bums and Golden State going to New York where they haven't wanted forever at taking that team to an NBA championship and go when them a title. That's you win that see net organization and those fans title in that building you become the greatest of all time in my personal record book. Now as far as falls never. I hope that clears it up. I don't care if it's the summer winter two degrees. One hundred two degrees. Eighty two degrees play golf tournament. I'm not going to South Dakota. I love the people of Sioux Falls. I know the mayor ran on a platform. They get elected that he would create us. Do stay. He was lying to you. There's no stupid. Let's go to Eric. Eric had your wake you take your stupid.

Cheesecakes ROY one for the rest of the day. Bill. I like Philly cheese steak with muster, which I know never ends. Well for me saying that allowed. Why would it then? Well, it's delicious. Mustered only met for a hotdog unaffiliated, take it so good. Can we make up? All I do that in the podcast standard. We do polls on the podcast. We can try is mustard. Good unaffiliated day.

Why are you ruining your ups with muster Weaver, wheat, a wheat bread with affiliated stake? A little muster shaking his head up here. Just going to get old fashioned hoagie roll. The the hoagie Poggi. How did you get a podcast? I'm not gonna listen. Deposited. Let's go to let's go to Nick, Nick. Go ahead. You're on wake you take your stupidity. What's up? What's up guys? We're talking about a couple of months ago, if you're a baseball or hockey game, you get to keep the ball or the puck. Why don't you football and basketball? I don't wanna see people in the front row about slow game. Taking basketball football. You're in that one. You are in that one. I feel like you're right there. I feel like a football land on your lap. You know guy kicks it over the net. Whatever it's why left why I feel you should be able to take that football. The basketball is a different story. I'm with you on the basketball. There's no need to be taken basketball's home. Plus it's first second row, but that football man, if it goes up into the fifteenth row, and it's kicked up there. And you dive and tackle people for that ball. You should be able to take that thing. Home to game bones. You earn that? Yeah. You've earned it. I totally agree with you. They used to gambles one main ball, and we'll get more balls. I mean, they're making billions of dollars. That's all. I mean, we stick to the two balls. We what do you got Bill? What it what it when you get out of here. I mean you've seen these NBA players before games. They like rub these balls. It's crazy how they run the ball. Yeah. They really like they take a great interest in the ball's probably. Yeah. The party. I don't I don't even know what's going on. I'm good you. You said you're okay before. But I don't think you're okay, I'm confused. Are you get as long as you're good? It doesn't get you wanted to say something though, you rush to the microphone you wanted to say. So how does that work in football? Because if a player throws the ball into the crowd, they get to keep it. But if they miss it is that in the NFL, I don't call you have to throw a pack. But if they miss a field goal in the NFL you have to get the ball back. I think the NFL you have to get the ball. I of the NBA you have to get the ball. But in baseball, you take it home and in hockey, you certainly get the puck home. So hockey is not making nearly as much money as the NFL. They're not skipping them pucks. Right. The Royal football role. I mean to me that's ridiculous. Ask enough apply. Best both who's making more money than everyone except the NFL that the referees to game balls one of the backup more to get more balls. Balls. Anyway, let's go to Ray Ray. Go ahead. You're on weak-. Take. Do you remember which team it was at knocked the yukon's women's basketball team at the tournament a few years ago? Never. Never believer. You. Who was the Yukon? I mean, she had a performance that will never forget. I forgot about. Baylor. No. No. Mississippi. I believe it. I think so could we remember her net? It's really the performance. I was talking about right? Let's go out to Larry Larry, go ahead. Do better your dad seventy eight or eighty nine. Wow. That's actually is ration. Maybe the best question. We've ever had them. Wake you take seventy eight or eighty nine. I went to the Philadelphia show. I can't remember thing about my life. But I remember the loser. I heard in Philadelphia nineteen eighty nine at JFK stadium. Philadelphia. Don't ask me why. And there's a good chance. I was on mushers am I allowed to say that Stanford? Can I say that?

I'm telling you that's bit because they never do that. They have scarlet fire they have China rider. They usually don't stick songs in between those two songs they play him as a couple and they stuck Cumberland blues right in the middle of China rider. And it was fantastic. And I will tell you this John Mayer saved the Grateful Dead. He has I didn't think it was possible. I'm Jerry guy. I went to over a hundred shows when Jerry played guitar for that band. In fact, the reason I graduate in five years, I'm Clark universities because I year off the dead. So is over a hundred shows, Jerry, and I love him.

Obviously again, I'm right? And we'll see how it goes when he comes on the phone. I'm sure he'll agree with most of what I suggest and say and do as opposed to your suggestions. Are you feeling? This is going to be too much work for you. I mean, where are you with this podcast because I feel like we're pulling all kinds of different directions. This is this is how podcast digital radio works. Are you already feeling that that this is going to be too much for you? Yes. It's definitely too much for me. I already feel it. But again, I do want to help you. And I think it'll be enjoyable to listen to but little stressful as far as when than how and radio and podcasts, not sure it's gonna work out. But let's give it a try and see. So then he listeners, and then we'll take it from the good news for you on. Here's the good news. Okay.

You're star the houses. The radio, but I don't wanna be a store anymore. This is about making you a store and then me profiting off of your sorta got it. And here's the other thing. That's great about this. And I'm sorry to cut you off. But I'm gonna cut you off. Because now we're in my house. Okay. Usually, I'm in your house. But now we are in my house. Okay. And so I'm gonna cut you off. Here's the great thing about the podcast. It's it's a double payoff here where not only are you working for the first time in seventeen years, but you're also not spending my money for the first time in seventeen years. How about that? I mean, I have worked definitely within the last ten years. And I think this is a win win for you. You're profiting off someone else's usual. Like, that's what you tend to try to do and. Yep. I love you. I'm joking about the work. I forgot that you did work on the front end of our relationship. I apologize. Forgive me. And I know raise twin girls born early. I haven't stopped for one hour of the day. But okay, that doesn't really count. Right. This is we don't get money from it. But okay, go ahead does count. You've done a great job. I apologize. You don't need to keep you know. Adding throwing your resume at me. I did apologize realized what I said was wrong. And I apologized got okay, except your politics. I love you. Let's let's talk about driving here before Adam gates comes on. Because I want to bring them into this conversation. We are at a very interesting time in our lives of various time in our daughters lives, we have twin fifteen year old girls. I'm gonna bring my family into this into this podcast. Abby is going to be a big part of it. You'll hear from 'em and Rachel later. When coach cases on I got friends coming on. I got cousins brothers everyone coming on. Okay. So this is exciting. But we're at a very interesting time. There is a crossroads in our life. Where our kids are fifteen. They're adults now and they just got their driver's permit. So unbeknownst to you, you waited for them to get the drivers permits for you to start driving them around town. I've been doing it for almost a year. Now does that anger? You imagine that angers I waited like everybody else waits until you're legal and allowed to do something break the rules. Like, you supposedly did I heard from Rachel that she was already driving on the highway before she even had a permit. So I'm not so sure that. You know, you'll be the one to teach her show them anything about the rules of the road since breaking shocked, though, where were you shocked when you finally did get in the car with them to drive just how good they were at driving. Were you shocked by that you wondering how were they do it? Because I said if you're taught you that it's all wrong. So I didn't really even feed into it at all. I just assume that everything you showed them was not how it's actually supposed to go. So no, I wasn't shocked. I just didn't want to take part of the conversation wasn't all the first time. It's gradual driving. I just took her out on the sawgrass. I told her it's easier driving on the highway. I told her just to let it out. Did she let it out? She took us all the way down the south beach ninety seven miles per hour was the average speed. She was driving the tighter. So went down the south beach. We had a little lunch we hung out in the afternoon. And then we went to club live later that night. So I just I threw a right into the fire. You know what? I mean. Yeah. I get it. Yeah. I get it. When she told me she went on a highway. I said, well, let me just show. You your father is like driving records. How many times he break? Hard day or he speeds, and it was like over the limit. And she was like stunned, and I said never again, you can never again go behind the wheel with him in the passengers resilient about by the way. That's that's what's called rush hour for those of us who work. We know what that means. That's why impounding a break so much. It's called rush hour. Yeah. Okay. Right. I understand. Okay. Even the weekend hard when I'm an important person. I have places the radio show to do. I mean, you you might say, hey, leave a little earlier, but I leave I guess about to say that. But why would that I mean that would make sense? Why would you do anything that makes sense scoop? Speaking of things that don't make sense. I don't understand what you're telling our kids to stop at a yield sign you stop at a stop sign you slowed down to the yield side. You survey the area around you. And then if you have room that cars around, then you pin it, and you go that's the way I taught them when they were thirteen years old. And I started taking him for drives. They are telling me that mommy is making a stop it. Every yield side. That's. Patently absurd at you gotta teach the right way. Okay. I I am teaching them the right way. They just started driving less than a month ago. And what I said to them is be prepared to stop. So most likely they'll probably or maybe half the time be a car coming. So you need to be on the break prepared to stop. So imagine your head that you're going to stop. I'm trying to teach them to be a cautious driver. And not just what you explain to them. You know survey the surroundings and floor it that's not the way that you would teach someone how to drive if they are going to be a safe cautious driver. So I didn't say you have to stop look both ways like a stop sign that be prepared to stop. So most likely when they come to a yield sign they will be on the break and ready to stop if they have to write and I just listened. I mean, that's just that's that's why we have such a great relationship. You tell them to be prepared to stop. I tell them to be prepared to pin. It. Guy. That's okay. So bringing out him gays. Let's bring in the jet head coach, listen, he's gonna like you a lot more than he likes me. Even though you're dolphin fan. Jets family. I guarantee he's gonna make you more. But I want to bring them in on this conversation, you okay? If I asked him about this or you call that. I'm sure Hillary may so yes, whenever you ask and size fine. We're gonna do it right now. Let's bring in the head coach of the New York Jets. My New York Jets. He's Adam gays. Adam was on the lebatardshow our show a couple of weeks ago. I was traveling with the family. So I didn't get a chance to partake in that interview and speak to my new head coach. So he's kind enough to give us a few minutes. Right now, we here odd stupidity. Adam. I want to bring you into this conversation. My wife, and I were having right before you came on the air with us. We are at a very interesting time in our children's lives. They are fifteen year olds we have twin girls they just got the driver's permit. And we're having this big debate in the house over a yield sign, and what you're supposed to do when you come up to the yield side out. I have told by kids unbeknownst to my wife. That when you come up to a yield sign, you don't come to a full stop, you survey the area, and then if you feel like you can get through you pin it, and you drive the car she is teaching our kids to come to a full stop, which is completely wrong. I don't like it. You gotta teach kids right off the bat. This is the way life is there's this pool this swimming company, Adam they give your kid, and they did this to my kids when they were four or five years old they give her a lesson or two, and then they just throw her into the middle of pool, and they figure it out. And that's the way I kinda liked to teach my kids about life. Just throw them in there, and let them figure it out. So ought to yield side, Adam who is right here. Is it me or my wife? Do you come to a full stop? Or do you slow down survey the area, and in it, if you have the opportunity, I think it's a slight tap of the brakes and go. I agree. I don't know. First of all, I didn't say full stop. I'm just teaching them. How to drive so when I said be prepared to stop like mostly there probably will. Or will? We don't know. But the vehicle coming through so be prepared to stop it because they're beginner drivers. I'm just using stop. And I go onto the break. And there's a daddy said that we should just pin. Like, no, you have to be prepared to stop. So. Yes, when he saying full, stop, I think he's understanding that I I'm just telling them to be prepared, but pretty much learn to stop now in case you have to. But I know you're listening skills is not a strength of his. Well, you got it not. Like the rest of us, right? What say that again? The rest of us. You're not married. Are you Adam? Yeah. And do you have kids? Yeah. Nine six and five. Okay. Nine six at five. So the nine year old when Adam gays gets into the car with a nine year old and the nine year old is old enough to drive Adam gays. We'll be telling them what is the approach you. That's my daughter. I'm probably tiller and coming to complete stop. The other two I've no control because they're going to do whatever they want. But here's the thing. I bring you on. I'm your side with my wife already everyone's going on here, you're supposed to be signing. With me I signed with you to start. I kinda swung it on. You heard my explanation. You know, it sounded better you, you misinterpreted what she was saying. Exactly. Well, yes, because I'm not listening. I'm terrible listener she's going to be the star of this show. Adam wondering do you like the game of thrones? I to tell you this. I don't watch a lotta TV like I'm more of like a movie like I'm gonna throw on. I'll probably gonna watch something like fled for the five hundred time or something like that. So that's the movie always stop on. If it's on TV. I see my always stop on the same movies. It's like finding the mid eighties early eighty movies. Right. That's our wheelhouse. I only ask because. Well, are you aware of who George are Martin is? No, okay. So he is the creator of game of thrones. And I only bring this up because I want to tell you a story, and I'm not gonna spend a ton of time on the is here because I know you already went through all that with the press conference. I didn't care, by the way, my wife, by the way, Abby you think Adam has beautiful is don't you? Definitely. Okay. And the reason I wasn't on with you that we with Lebanon is because I was in Mexico at a deadandcompany Grateful Dead. It's my favorite band, Adam. And they haven't event every year Mexico called playing descend at George or Morton, the creator of game of thrones. Was there? He's wearing a jets at. It's the second time I've seen them there. We've you know, we've developed some sort of friendship here, very famous guy. And the first thing he says to me is what do you think old googly eyes? I mean, what are you? What are you looking for me to say here? It's like I told your buddy he's a huge dolphins fan. That. I don't care. I love that. You don't care. I really do. I just don't get off. The is it a second. But I want to run this by you. I wanted to take whatever face you were making that day. I wanted to put it on a t shirt, I told Vitor this. And I wanted to call it the gates of the franchise. What do you think? That's your call. Right. Not. I'm not I'm not the idea guy here. Okay. But it's really your call your name and your lightness at. So I can't really do whatever you want. I doubt I'm gonna get like gonna get royalties or something. Well, that's what a big you wanna go in fifty fifty with me. I'm happy to do that. I mean, really to be honest, you should get ninety percent. And I should only get ten for the stupid idea. But if you wanna go fifty fifty with me, I'm willing to do that. And I'll tell you right now the jet steal this idea. It starts selling these t shirts, I'm going to sue them. How about that? I would do the same thing. I don't know you might have to talk my agent. He might have some kind some kind of issue with me doing my own deals percentage. I listen, I wanna talk to you about movies. And I wanna talk to you about the jets. Okay. And my wife has some demands he's gonna make view as the new jets head coach forty five years. This has been my favorite team coach. I am hurting. I was thrilled. I was thrilled that the dolphins. Let you go and jets hired you because I don't get this thing we do with coaching three years ago. You would the coach that everyone wanted, and I don't think anything's changed. But again, it's been forty five years. I'm hurting coach. I haven't seen my team playing a Super Bowl yet. Tell me why. This time going to be different. You know, we're at those beginning stages were were closer to the end of this. You know, the coaching staff, you know, putting that together, you know, we're we're deep into the valuate and the guys that are on the boss right now, the guys that are coming up in free agency me on them. Then we kinda hit that that combine free agency period. And you know, this is going to be it's going to be one of those things where it's gonna be fun to put together. And you know, kinda get go through all these steps. And it's going to be first time with you know, might McCallion and Brian Hyman, Dan and the rest of the crew here of of putting this together with this coaching staff that we're putting together and really it's going to be for me. I'm I'm gonna enjoy a lot because you know, Greg Williams coming on board, and some some of these defensive coaches and why the offense of guys are some guys that I've worked with before to our practices gonna feel like a game. It's going to be competitive. You know is probably gonna start off where we're probably going to be talking more than than the players. They're probably going to be going. What's wrong with these? Guys. But that's kinda how y'all how we are were were we're all competitors in this in this building. And that's kind of fire. You wanna practice? You guys feel that and understand? Hey, this is going to be harder than the game. Because that's how competitive we wanna be. He. Good. All right, pardon pardon, my friend, Mike ET. He's a bigger Jeff Han than I am a coach gates. He's just listening in on the interview. And he feels the need to give the jets chant after every one. Exactly, right. Okay. So you like it you love, Mikey. You like, my wife, and you like, Mike ET. This is great Sam darnold. What'd you like most about Sam? When you saw last season. Why I mean, he got it us that first game. We played them. I know the second game, you know, the couple of times that I've talked to him. You know, when we were kinda in that process. We kind of going back and forth on that. But I mean that was a tough game. We were coming off kind of a logger week. We had we had ten days. Get ready for the game. You know, we through a couple of different things at but that's kind of the process of being a young quarterback. You start seeing different stuff. You know, you have to go through that process to to become a better quarterback meal year to year week to week. And you know, I'm excited to get to work with him. His pocket presence is arm. Strang's? Just the fact that he's played play. Late in the NFL already. You know what? I mean, he's twenty one years old. I mean, this this guy. This guy's got so much time left in his career. And this is the first time I've been around a guy this young and being able to kinda get going with him from the round floor. Gee. All right, Abby, you're next to me every single Sunday every fall. So is there anything you wanna make some sort of put, you know, anything. Any message one delivered a coach gays here? You have a chance to deliver a message to the head coach of the New York Jets and you want to say because I'm a misery every Sunday. I have been for me. Yeah. Go ahead. Notes on the line. You gotta get out of this this misery thing. Like, we gotta swing this. The other way for you. Yes. I mean, coach listen, I've been married to for seventeen years and every Sunday and every full he's just Bisbal which makes me miserable. Make my kids miserable. And I guess I just really need help from you. So I guess the thing that you were discussing before I hope that we can make that happen. Just changed it around. And he's hoping to see the jets go to the Super Bowl in his lifetime. Or even if my daughter's lifetime lifetime, hopefully, we'll see changes, but he definitely needs to get out of his misery. And I'm hoping that you can be one help us or your players. We're going to be one week at the time. And the best part about it is you get you get about six days doing joy. And then you gotta move onto the next one. So just try to stack as many of those possible. I listen, I understand that. You don't want me to be miserable. This is none of your doing Adam. Okay. This is the organization. I love new. Nobody cares. What happened last year Abby outside of my wife and kids? What is the most important thing in my life? Is it the New York Jets? Definitely. All right. So what are you calling? Why didn't you call in? When when I was on the show. I I mean because I was sitting around with George or more. I heard you just got a little lazy. That's what they told me. That's what Dan said, listen, I'm the guy to contract year that you don't give a max contract to because Dan is right. Okay. I was working my ass off before I got this new contract five year deal then and I just signed. And since we signed the contract Ivan worked five day workweek since we signed the new contract, you're not one of those guys. Are you get the money, and then he just kind of shut it down. I am one of those guys. Absolutely one of those. I am the Albert Hanes worth of sports radio that. Where does say I'm wondering here. Coach from your from your perspective where does Sam need to improve the most. You know? That's that's a good question. I mean, it's it's like one of those things where we need to get together. And and really kinda go through the steps that we need to go to learning a new offense for him. You know, getting a see him like an individual setting practice, all those type of things you can watch film. But there's a lot of things that you don't always get a seen a game that he may do well or may struggle at at practice that they did. And really I always feel like I have to go through those steps in the offseason. And once we hit the season. Then it's kinda like, okay. Hey, these are the things he does really. Well, we're gonna lean on those. We're going to try to improve on other things. But it's you you need to get hands on guys you need to be there you need to see with your own eyes. And that's really where you can tell where you say. Okay. We're not very good at this is how we got improve it. And this is direction we're going, really. That's that's what I'm waiting for it. That's what I'm waiting for. Our our chance to get on the field and start working. He might be a little low pressure to. You notice that right? He got very excited. I mean, he loves when you talk order back get very excited he could contain himself. You want to ask coach? Is there any really needs Brady and Bella check out of his life. Is there any way we can make this happened? Or do you see this happening anytime soon? Those two guys not not being together just out of my life. I don't I don't know. I I think I heard a hundred percent he's coming back next year. God. But like don't you want to win the division with them there? Oh, that's a good point. No, no, no, Abby, Abby. This is. Why this is why he is an NFL head coach. And I am a coward. But you wanna go against the best. That's how you measure. So that's how you figured out where you stand. Okay. I don't do that. Win win. Whether we win with them or without them. We just wanna win. So, but I mean, I just don't know, you know, if if if regardless I think everyone just wants them out. So we're hoping that eventually in years we can be done and not have to worry about the patriots anymore. Yeah. I don't I don't know. Tom said he was gonna play these forty five. I know. I know. I mean, listen, I'm gonna ask you. I'm going to ask you to come on this podcast at ten years. And we're gonna still be having the same discussion. I mean, it is fifty. One at Brady will be fifty. But listen, I like the mentality fact, Mikey I need to hear for you. Because that's the mentality are coaching hat. He doesn't care about Brady Abella check. He wants to beat the patriots with Brady Abella check. Mike Teague go. He. All right, coach got my daughter. Rachel sit right here. She wants to ask you a question. Coach first time longtime big fan. My dad tells me the jets aren't going to Super Bowl my lifetime. Is that true? All hang up and listen. Brew all you're making. You're making me. Go hypothetical. Yes. Oh, this hurts because I wanna wanna be aggressive on this. But I mean, it's one game at a time. Listen, tell her that we're gonna Super Bowl. I won't hold you to it. It's fine. We're not gonna put it like, it's not gonna make news. I've never done that my life. I can't start. Now hope is on the here. Now. That's what I focus on. Okay. Then here's a question from my other daughter. I don't have any questions because I don't really care and I'm actually a dolphins fan. Just make my dad happy. I'll hang up and listen. That's what we're working on. Good answer. Good answer. And listen, if I come out with these t shirts, and you don't tell your agent, just tell them you.

Spoiler Discussion: Watchmen Episode 8, "A God Walks Into Abar"

"Uh-huh oh everyone and welcome to slam daily for Monday. December ninth two thousand nineteen on today's episode. We're going to have a spoiler discussion of the eighth episode of. HBO's watchmen entitled a God walks into a bar mining has been pearson on the senior writer Slash Home Dot Com and I'm joined on today's episode slash home writers trained Buoy. Everyone anyone and Chris Vendrell is too high. Ac you're back I'm so glad to have you back so I wanna ask you. What have you thought about watchmen over? The past. Asked what three weeks when he's been gone. Oh man the show rules so I actually wasn't able to catch up with watchmen while I was in Vietnam because because my H. B. O. The VPN like doesn't work in Vietnam which was ironic? Because a lot of the last couple of episodes have taking place in Vietnam War Vietnam play a prominent role in it and I was really Sort of pleasantly surprised to find that because I remember talking in a previous episode where I was uncertain how the series would sort of deal with the The troublesome elements of the Vietnam War that the original comic book never really grappled with And I really appreciate that. That is playing a significant role and So yeah I'm I'm back and I'm excited to watch. I binged the past couple episodes like right before this We started recording. So it's kind of fresh in my mind and I also had a lot of thoughts while watching them and now I don't remember what they were but I just want to say that this show rules and it's awesome and This past episode is just so so good yes awesome. I'm glad we're on the same. Page there I want to kick this off by reading a couple emails. This one is from Louis from cal- California. I'm not GonNa read the whole whole thing but basically this person is just theorizing. What if the millennium clock is a way to kill Dr Manhattan by having let's see yeah basically? That's the gist of the email. I wonder if based on what we saw in this episode which was not much to do with the Millennium Clock Tower. If that's sort of where you guys are leaning towards towards a in terms of like speculation for what might happen in the finale before we jump into what actually happens in this episode. You guys feel like the Millennium Clock may be used used as some sort of device to destroy document Hatton or perhaps multiple Dr Manhattan's if that ends up being the case Yeah that that sounds like a good theory. I wasn't really sure what the Millennium Clock would have roll. It would have in sort of this overall plot but it seems like it comes down to The Seventh Cavalry trying to harness Dr Manhattan's powers and obviously lady true and We'll reeves are trying to stop that and yet. Yeah destroying but Dr Manhattan seems to be like the answer to Whatever to that goal so Yeah that that sounds right to me or I wonder if it's something more less Violent something that has to do with I don't really know what the solution would be. Something that like. Save everyone in the end but optimistic but who knows because I am now invested in the Darker Manhattan Angela. Love Story Chris. What about you do you think? That's a plausible theory theory. I mean sure anything's possible with this. Show the sky's the limit. I guess speaking of the skydiving the women. Somebody let's Z.. Shane from Alberta Canada emailed us in and sort of address. Something we brought up a couple of episodes ago. I think about the idea of time maybe lasting lasting being being measured differently on Europa Jupiter's moon this percents says on the official. HBO Watchmen Podcast Damon. Lindelof mentioned something about how how is clearly on a different trajectory with the storyline which led me to look up. The rotation of Europa's access. Now that we know where he's located one day on Europa last as long as one in year presumably on earth there my guess is that fight has only been on Europa for seven earth. Day is seven candles. Were on the last cake in the post credits scene. meaning that he was rescued or left after only a week there he probably then set in motion something with lady true to save the million or billion humans under the guys that he sold his company to her again to maybe save humanity from itself. What do you guys think? So does that track to you guys like the idea that maybe invite has only been gone for a week like I guess we saw the two thousand nine version of him in this episode and he didn't look that different I mean I mean his his style certainly changed But I don't know. Do you think there was some sort of de aging going on. That was pretty subtly done their. Do you guys think he's only been gone for a week or do you think seven candles represent seven earth years. How would you guys think that makes sense to me Yeah and like the the the seven candles definitely like Supports that theory as well. I do think that's right and Also I want to note that seven days is the time that God created you earth so I think that's significant as well and Yeah that I think that's correct. I mean to me it seems like we. We know that a lot of time passed on Europa because he Fight went through all the effort of you know like we saw little flashes of but it seemed like a lot of time had passed from him writing his play to actually putting on the play to all time passing in him realizing that he's unfulfilled on on this planet and trying to escape so I don't know if it was like seven actual days for him because then he would receive one cake per day and that would be pretty ridiculous. I don't think the show is trying going to posit that in terms of a timeline but yeah I'm curious to see how the vite storyline collides with what's going on with Angela. And everybody else back on unearth. So we'll get into that a little bit but yeah let's let's go ahead and dive into the rest of this episode or or start with this episode which is basically just a lot of it is Angela and Dr Manhattan at a bar in Vietnam. It's at Mr Eddie's bar which is something that I did not pick up on myself but I heard on it was a series regular podcast from Hollywood reporter. They pointed this outright win doctor Manhattan walks through the title into the bar. It says Mr Addy's bar and I think looking at the production designer that and serve them comparing it to the bar in the comics in Vietnam where Edward Were Blake. The comedian shoots this pregnant Vietnamese woman. We talked about this on a previous episode of the podcast. I think it's supposed to be the same bar. So Mr Eddie's this is maybe a reference to Edward Blake there. I'm not really sure. I'm wondering if this confirms are sort of theorizing that this may involve lay true parentage. In some way like maybe she was the child of the pregnant woman who was shot. And maybe doctor Manhattan did something to to help deliver the baby and and potentially Adrian vite into raising her. 'cause we were talking and previous episode. About how theorizing that. Maybe he could be sort of her adopted. Father Chris Ring Trud any of you the name of that barred that hit your radar at all. No because I haven't read the comic taking a very long time so I didn't pick up on that sorry nerds well now that I've laid it all out. Does that sound plausible to that answer any potential central questions where I camera what it was but i read something I think it's like on the PD pedia site that completely blows that theory area part like there's something and I can't remember what I wrote it down like a professional but I have so much junk kicking around my stupid head that stuff gets pushed out. I can't remember what it was but there's something that that puts that theory to rest so I can't. I don't think that's true. Okay all all right so just wanted to address that up at the top of this episode. AC wonder like Oh. I wonder who would name Bar after. Edward Blake after he he had supposedly been only violent and terrible to the Vietnamese people while he was there so I don't I wonder who would actually name the bar Mr Eddie's barth it is named after Edward Flake because that would be quite ironic. I think it would and I think it's worth pointing out that. Eddie's is spelled E. D. D. Y. apostrophe Ostra fiasco on this bar and I think Eddie Blake was with an I.. E. In the watchmen comic. So maybe just some sort of like bizarre Easter egg on Damon when Waas part but I feel like everything in the show has been so purposeful and Chosen with such care that I don't know if that's a mistake or just some some sort of allusion or I'm not really sure but We're ready is what the pregnant Vietnamese woman called him too. And I think that spelling is probably like it can and I think that can be loosely. Yeah I wonder if it's just an Easter egg like you're saying actually. I know that you mentioned that you were a fan of your now. Invested in the Angela and John. Ostermann love story here this episode to me. It reminded me a lot of the constant the lost episode where a episodes leaps back and forth through time and that's basically like the same construct that they used here. I assume you liked this episode lot. Yes I did You might guess I don't know if you guys know this but the constant is one of my favorite TV episodes of all time. I watch it every Christmas because it is a Christmas episode and it just Such well-crafted Love story through time. God walks into a bar. Does the exact same thing but in a a more and almost in like a wider scale and with You know all the wash mythology behind it too and yeah. I really enjoyed the structure of this episode. I really liked the one through line of this episode being The sort of conversation between Dr Manhattan and Angela in the bar and That kind of him. We get to experience the closest thing to how he perceives time and experiences everything so I really liked like that and I thought that was really effective. Yeah what did you think about it. Chris Yeah I in my interview. I pointed out that I got serious constant vibes from the as and it makes sense since they're both co written by Damon Lindelof so he he loves that time thing. He's a big fan of of time jumping and this does make perfect exertive companion piece to the constant 'cause you know it's it's both a love story and it's about time jumping around which is pretty much what the constant was as well. Also I do I do want to add that. I don't think this episode nails the love story quite as well as I think the constant does. I'll put it this way. The constant every time every watch it makes me weep and I did not cry while watching this episode so I think the causes is a little bit better at selling the love story but beyond that. This is a great episode. I don't think it's on the level of the constant yet but It is it is great. I was trying to remember. It's been so long since I've rewatch loss but I wonder how much of the Penny Desmond relationship was previously laid out or hinted at compared to how much of the Cowl I'm or I'm sorry John Angelo relationship that's existed so far in the show because I feel like we haven't really seen very much of those two as a couple so so far in the show and I thought it did a very good job of making me invest in care about their relationship you know in essentially just an hour because we haven't seen seen too much of them together. The show has so many other things on its mind that has not taken the time to really establish their love affair or romance or home. Life really really aside from just a couple scenes so I'll be interested to see like what the percentages as the breakdown of screen time devoted to those relationships Komo comparing this episode with the constant but yeah so I guess it makes things it makes love story all the more powerful to me that Angela points out all right at the beginning that she hates Dr Manhattan and then by the end of it. She's like agreeing to go on a second date with this guy basically So yeah I don't know I just I just wanted to point that out like over the course of this episode. He sort of wins her over. Even though she is like essentially they're celebrating aren't are not celebrating but commemorating commemorating the death of her parents which was indirectly caused by doctor. Manhattan himself. So it's maybe like the most unlikely thing that you could imagine agean would like. She's they're drowning her sorrows and then she ends up agreeing to see this guy again. Who was the person who essentially he caused the death ron parents so pretty intense stuff I want to ask you? Do you think that Jon Ostermann killed cow. The first cow doc. Because we see Angela take him to a morgue in order to find a a human body to take over essentially and cal died under the first Kelly original cal that we never really see in the series died under mysterious circumstances. There's some mentioned in this episode of something about maybe dying of a heart attack but like he couldn't they couldn't afford an autopsy so that's left mysterious there guys think that there's a chance that that John Ostrom in that document Hatton as this being who can see sort of all points on a time line at the same time and experiences all of this stuff maybe knew that he would need to Potentially kill this person in order to become them. Because that's the one that Angela would choose. I think I think a little too dark but you never know I mean I mean I feel like the the doctor Manhattan in the comic remake would do something like that but I feel like the document Hatton in at least this episode is a little more likable than the comic version. Where the comic one is sort rib lake this indifferent certif- figure whereas I don't get that indifference from this version doctor Manhattan but I dunno L. The impression I got actually I was like oh he definitely killed him so I mean I think there was just some mentioned in this episode of Doctor Manhattan like being the one who like manipulate manipulate situations to make ideas seem like the came from other people when in fact they were his ideas to begin with so I was just wondering if it was like a more subtle way okay of the show sort of laying that out there as a potential dot for us to connect but yeah either way I I liked how this all played out so let's let's jump up to the age reinvite storyline second What have you been thinking about Adrian? Vite stuff as you've been catching up with the series I really enjoy enjoy the AG. Invite stuff and we finally see in the last week's episode the sort of Fruits of his Labor in which he finally launches themselves out into the stratosphere and like writes a message And here he made us two weeks ago but here he is being punished for those actions by the the creations of Dr Manhattan For wanting to leave and I think it's interesting that he is In the post credit scene I guess I'm jumping forward a little bit Talks about how he's unhappy in this heaven in this utopia because he's not needed despite being worshiped as their master and everything he's not he's still not a god and he aspires to that. God like status which I think was really leaf suiting sort of agent bites whole narcissistic personality and Yeah I I enjoyed it and I also like like the sort of the insights that we got into the the the servants the I can't remember their names Some cruikshanks fields and cruikshanks and Where they like their origins? And and the very first Adam and eve that Dr Manhattan created and how they remember all of it and I thought that was I was really fascinating and I enjoyed that as well al.. Chris what did you think of the document hadn't arm. Sorry Adrian vite stuff in this episode in particular like we finally get the answers to a lot of questions we've had about. Why vite is there We learned that it's essentially his own. You Know I. It's like he asked to go there but he still will a prisoner We learned that the game warden is the first Philips What what did you make this part of the episode? I really liked. I have really liked. The my shouldn't say the flashback scenes. It's the whole episode flashback scenes but the one scene where document hat and goes to the and Heart Antarctic base. And they had that conversation and Adrian is just really disappointed that even he he he killed millions of people with a giant giant squid. Humanity is still building bombs like pretty much like. He's realizing that he did all this for nothing. In a sense I really love the way I I love. The Way Jeremy Irons is dressed that because he's he's like really groovy looking and then as I love the way he plays the scene of justice like he's just can't believe that he did all this this for nothing essentially. I also love that document. Hand kind of tricks in areas like You'll be you'll be worshipped like a god if you go to this utopia bill and and he's like and Adrian Sheds single-tier he's like Oh that's what I want and then he gets there and it's obviously not what he wanted after on. I just love the way that that all played laid out. I wonder what you guys think about the idea of the Phillips's in cruikshanks. Because I think you know we see this like We see the the creation of life I've seen in the beginning of this episode. Where Dr Manhattan is is creating all this life on Europa and we see the the first creation of Adam and Eve essentially? I don't think and maybe you can correct me if I'm wrong since he watched it more recently but I don't think we see document and create any other life. I'm sorry are any other versions of Phillips and cruikshanks. I think it's just those two that we see there. So are we meant to assume that Adrian vite has somehow figured out a way to also create life himself like or is this just like him building on things that document Hatton has already laid it out like all our all of the subsequent Phillips's and cruikshanks Adrian fights sort of quite creations guessing about them. I think so because because we see that shot of document Hatton pulling the original the the the Adam and eve figures out of that same body body of water. Now I don't really know how Adrian figured out how to do that too but it's clear that they since they came from that body of water and we. We saw all that scene where Adrian's pulling those babies out of that body of water like he's the one who pretty much created the rest of them but I don't know how he figured out how to do that. Yeah Yeah Yeah You're right Ben He only we only see the first to Adam and Eve being created by Dr Manhattan and I think it is age invite figures it out later like or somehow how works out a formula from that original creation And I think at some point. Dr Manhattan refers to that pond that the the cruikshanks dopes comes from as being full of miracles. Or something like that so I think that there's some sort of some sort primordial soup or something that like the gets those kind of the things that Madonna Manhattan creates. Yeah I just thought it was such a fascinating idea. Document hand creating this life and realizing that they they were essentially like built to serve him like even though he created them. He became unsatisfied with his own creations. And he just decided to abandon them and like that idea is such a you know like a bone chilling thing that like God creates a planet and becomes utterly disinterested sit in his creations of just abandoning the forever. That such cuts right to the core. Um and there's so much like a Christian imagery and discussion in this episode in terms of like you know we see ager invite as this like Jesus figure where he he wants to be worshiped he you know he he goes and and sort of is A. Ah I guess like Lording over these people at in In this Europa area and then he's ultimately crucified by them at the end of the. has these like weird tree tree. Tomatoes like smashed in his face over and over again. But he's like shirtless his arms outstretched says if he's on a cross at the end so I don't know what exactly the show is trying to say about religion but it doesn't seem like it necessarily like Do you guys have any thoughts about that. Well I think what you said earlier about out. The idea of a disinterested God abandoning is exactly the thesis on religion. That this show is trying to make that Whatever God if they if they did exist aren't aren't interested or like have abandoned US and The idea of playing God I think is a really interesting Facet of any storytelling and something that I think that we see both aspects of in the show and in this episode. Because we see God like figure Doctor Manhattan and he you use these powers in it yet so disinterested in being God and Then we see the counterpoint. A to invite who wants so badly to be got into play God God and only gets nothing and get nothing out of it. I guess it would say so. Yeah I also loved Adrian's invites Two thousand nine style airy seemed very like nineteen eighties with the sleeves. The the jacket sleeves rolled up. Love that look. He mentioned that a little. Oh elephant told him that document. Hatton was I think not on Mars are either on Mars or not on Mars and remember the exact Context of that conversation. But I think that's obviously actually a reference to lady true so I just wanted to mention that before we let it pass by. I like this idea that vite created. He's so smart you know. That's that's been like the defining characteristic this character from the beginning from the graphic novel. He he had created a plan. A for Dr Manhattan. You know thirty years years ago that it was going to be this memory wiping device this symbol that he was gonna be able to push into his forehead and and it was something that Dr Manhattan couldn't see Zia reminded me a lot of Kryptonite. This concept of like Superman having a weakness and not being able to see like through lead That that box that he opens up and I think he said something about like tacky on particles. I'm not entirely sure. What does that seems to be a weakness of Dr Manhattan's He's not able to the particles locals that were in the chamber that created him weren't they? Oh that probably makes it yeah. I'm sure they are that. That makes a Lotta Sense. It's been so long since I've read the original graphic novel but yeah I think that that probably only make sense. So yeah just the idea that you know and I thought that was a nice reference to call back to the original graphic rate because like the there's a big scene at the end where all of the the surviving Heroes Confront Ozzy Mantius and he he like lays out his evil plan about the squid and all this and he basically says like it already happened already. Did it thirty five minutes ago. And this thing where he created this this option for John Ostrom. He created thirty years ago instead. So I thought that was a nice little callback there in the current timeline or actually let's let's talk a little bit about the post credit sequence them so we're still talking about fight a little bit What did you guys think about this? The him reading this fog dancing book that that's been referenced a couple times so far like I said we find out that the game game warden was the first Mr Phillips and then the horseshoe thing. I guess we can talk about that now. Do you guys have any theories on what exactly this is supposed to mean. Because we've seen seen this horseshoe show up in the show before too. I mean he I mean obviously he's using it to dig his way out but it implies that he he knew this was going to play out this way the entire time because the first time we worship he says to the the Mr Phillips like I don't need that right now so it's almost just like he has some sort of way to see to the future. It's like he almost has like the save ability. Doctor Manhattan has raises an experienced time the same way. But that doesn't make sense. So I don't understand how he knew he was going to need that horseshoe but that's that's how I took it. Yeah and like hd did that square with you did it. Did you have any The reading that seen in any other way like how the hell did he know to to give them. Honestly did I did not know what to make of the Horseshoe I was like. Maybe it's like a lucky horseshoe or something but I guess that I think reading make sense But Yeah I don't know what to make of it because I think you're right. Chris seems to imply that like maybe If the Philips Philips cruikshanks are are indeed creations creations of Adrian. Vite maybe he's able to sort of implant them with the this idea this like as as a backup plan almost like a a long con He's able to implant each of them with this idea to. To give him a horseshoe at some point like just as an escape hatch for a situation that he's not sure that he'll get into but but he might get into. I don't know I wonder if the show is ever going to address that because we only have one episode left and it seems like there's a lot for the show to wrap up because we didn't even yes so many characters but like this episode is a really good job of filling in blanks. But there's still so much left that I'm really paranoid. The finale is going to be like like an hour. Long model all right now. We're going to explain everything that happened. And I I have enough faith in the show show. That will find a way to make that interesting but you know I don't know how they're going to wrap everything up and according to Damon Lindelof they. You know the design this first season to be completely self-contained so there is. They are in theory on Raptor Allo- by just don't know how yeah so so. Angela Awakens. John you know back in the current timeline. And he teleport's their kids away. His formed an alliance with will reeves What did you guys think about this? The the meeting being of these two characters. I thought it was. I loved that whole paradox. Thing where it pretty much implies that the whole reason everything is happening putting is because angel accidentally asked her grandfather in the past about something that he had no knowledge of. And that's really set in motion. Everything that's happening. I really love that whole because you can't really have a time travel story without there being some sort of paradox. So I love it. They just flat out underlying it and they're just like oh that's a paradox. It's a bootstrap paradox. which is something that GonNa pull doctor. Who in here is explained in an episode of Doctor Dr Hill and is really and it's always a really fun element of time travel? And I like the idea that you know this idea that Judge Jed Crawford yes this was a part of the cyclops. Cults Came from Angela. But we don't know where it really originated because it's in that that endless circle between her and we'll visa passed and the chicken and the egg you don't know which one came first but it turns out they're both the same time both simultaneously as a really interesting idea and there's so much egg imagery in this episode in particular. There's been a lot throughout the series but it seems like they've really ramped up in this in this episode. You guys have any thoughts. That's about the significance of eggs in this episode. Or do you think it was just a continuation of like a visual Motif that they've been playing with a little bit. Well he he says a AH doctor Manhattan the chicken and the egg thing and the answer like what further chicken and egg and the answer is both so. I think that's really the biggest thing they're underlining also eggs are delicious and I don't think heroes to the whole creation of life because when he first shows Angelo the egg after she asked asked him to create life and Bradbury he just gives her an egg and She's confused at first but then he says well isn't an egg form of life and I think it ties into to to the the cruikshanks and Phillips and sort of the idea I don't know we're all eggs in the end. Yeah Yeah I can buy that so we see this shoot out in the streets like Angela. John Ostermann is is basically like sort of reeling a little bit from from coming out of at the end of this tunnel they talked about this tunnel. Imagery allot the tunnel of love. And all that and the blind spot the doctor Manhattan had for ten years where he was Cowan and I didn't know what was going on in his life. He couldn't see that part of the time line at all but once he emerges from that he he seems a little dazed. It's like he's not he's not fully. They're still trying to put all these pieces together Angela basically just try to take things into our own hands and and goes and shoots. It's just like breaks into this huge shootout in the streets in this neighborhood outside her house as the Seventh Cavalry. Are there and we see the the ahead. Exploding thing like he Roseanne and starts blowing people's heads up. He stops bullets. Like neo from the Matrix. What did you guys think about the the? Ah Angela as far as John Wick action scene. Kinda thing play out here. You Talk Doc. I it's a great scene Yeah I really enjoyed it. And it is very John Weiqian hers or shoot off at and standoff on her own against it's this whole team of seven calvary members and then when John When doctor Manhattan comes out and starts just exploiting their heads with Just by aiming his hand at them. It's I think a nice call. Nice call back a callback to How he won so many wars and defeated so so many enemies in the comics as well when he just turned his head at them and they would just explode or disappear so Yeah and I I I liked that sequence a Lawton also it. I think it feeds into Dr Manhattan's continuing indifference. Because he could come out guns blazing with Angela too but he waits until the last moment to help her Before she almost gets killed and only to walk into the the the canons Annan's Area so that he will get Blasted away because that's just inevitable. Everything to him is inevitable. And it's he's just going along with how. Oh he sees things playing out before. I was speaking with Dave China about this episode last night and he was wondering why you know just like a simple narrative level. Why by Dr Manhattan wouldn't teleport all of them away to safety instead of just the kids like you know what what is it about this situation situation where he must play out in a way that's going to negatively affect Angela and John like I is it just. Is there some larger reasoning behind this choice. That you guys think we're going to that will be revealed in the finale that makes this like the ultimate path athlete Doctor Strange Adventures in game. There's only one outcome kind of scenario here or is there any other reason you guys can think of for why he wouldn't just use news his abilities to protect his family in a different way. Chris used acres this time. I feel like I've been speaking. I the entire episode. I Want I want to give you the opportunity. Hd I want you to step out of the shadows. Yeah I mean I. I'm sure I'm I wonder. If it's something that will be unveiled or just how Dr Manhattan Acts is and sees the world. Because to him everything is in that one Sort of set path. Which I think is interesting because you know we have seen? So many different sci fi shows and stories and movies where there are diverging paths with every choice that we make and I I wonder why Dr Manhattan in Hatton is so adamant that the idea that there's only one outcome for everything that happens And like that idea to have him being limited which I think he he brought up. He said that his abilities or whatever he could do was limited. Is it something. That's limiting him is he limiting himself. is there like an extremist forces. I that's keeping him from being at his full potential or powers or is it the hit the love that has granted him and wanted to make him want to become human. Yeah yeah it was kind of wondering if it was just you know if a part of it was like. He told Angela in that bar. Ten years ago that things were going to end tragically. And if it's it's sort of like at that point things were already. He experiences all the stuff at the same time so so. It's almost like prophetic in a way like he. He's just letting thing it play out the way that he told her. It was going to play out. I don't know I mean we're getting until like unanswerable questions here and I'm I'm not sure how instructive that is to really think about like the inner mechanics of Dr Manhattan. Like allie works. 'cause he's such a mysterious figure but I wonder if that's something the show is going to touch on or you just sort of leave mysterious and leave us to sort of endlessly wonder about Chris. Do you have any thoughts about that at all. I mean the only thing I is it. He's like that avengers doctor. Strange thing where it's like. This is the only way things can play out. And that's why he's making sure it happens. This way okay but I guess we'll hopefully. We'll see next week I again. I really hope they're not gonna like brush some of this stuff up. I want answers dammit it. I just realized that I forgot to write on our shared documents. That the scene where we see this sort of flashback to John Osman's upbringing and like the Lord and Lady of the Manor having sex for the first time like where he's in the closet and he sees them you know it's not a huge part of this episode but I I found it might be worth touching on because they eventually sort of explain themselves. They sent him down they give them a Bible and they make him promise to make it your purpose to create something beautiful in life and then obviously sleet. That hit had a huge impact on him because he takes their actual manner not not recreating one but like literally transporting the one that he you know. Partially Ashley grew up in And puts it on Europa and then creates these people out of out of their image What did you guys think? Think about that part of the flashback. Yeah I I definitely Doug Bet these. The cruikshanks and filled characters are just like random him like he was drawing on his pass. I thought that was really neat. Touch I love the issue. Although I love he moved the Manor House. Although a part of Me Lake it feels like that should have been like news at some point like a giant house disappeared offer like that should have been like I feel like maybe it is. Maybe it's like a background thing. The first episode that no one picked up on like there's something like a newspaper headlines Somewhere Halas vanishes. Yeah you would think that would show up on some sort of satellite recon or something but okay. So let's jump into some lingering questions. I don't really have any particular crackpot theories this episode but if you guys do please interrupt and throw them out. I feel like this episode. Did a good job of answering a lot of questions and not necessarily raising a lot more like we're getting close to the end game. Aim here so I feel like they've they've created the boundaries and now they're trying to fill those in. The picture becomes clearer to us. So so why do you guys think is the one of one of the questions that it raises is why is it important. Angeles sees John Walking on water in the pool in the backyard. Yeah Well I. I don't think we're actually equipped to be able to answer this question. I don't think we have no information to to you know. Settle on the real answer but I would love to hear if you have any theories about why you think that particular visual was important enough for Angeles to see. I mean the Jesus Metaphor side. I have no idea because it's not answered in the episode and I'm guessing it something that will be or I'm hoping is something that will be brought up again later I Yeah I don't know. What do you think Chris I mean I definitely think it's setting something up again? It's that I hate to keep using these Zabel able because it's not the only one that's ever done it but it's the one that everyone will immediately think. I do. Think that avengers thing where he setting things up to happen a certain way and he's telling her no store he's telling her and us the audience to store that Info in the back of our Noggins for the final episode. Because something's it's GonNa happen involving water. I don't know what it could be. It's checkouts walking on water exam. That's really the best way I can I you could. You could say it. Where he's he's setting up something for her to keep in mind and for us to keep in mind that final episode and he explained to Angela in in their first meeting in the bar that he could walk on water and she like you know stops him and says wait a second? You can walk on water so it's like an idea that she's already familiar with so I'm just wondering why the visual of her actually seeing it is so important. They're part of me wonders if it's because he is going to Imbue Angela with his powers and maybe she will have to walk on water later in in some capacity like if that's going to be part of the endgame The idea is presented in this episode. That Basically Dr Manhattan can pass on his powers to somebody else like through. I think they imply it's through a food like maybe not only through a food. That part wasn't the one hundred percent clear to me but it seems like he was definitely saying you know I I could I could give you this egg if I want if I am Butte it with the right you know the rate eight Chemical makeup or whatever and you ate this egg you could have my towers basically so I feel like shit and he was making. He was making waffles at the end. She should've of eaten those waffles. It was yes she she always eggs out of the sky there. He was trying to give her some towers and she's awesome everywhere damaged but if you just eat waffles none of this would be happening. I feel like that you know talking about like Chekhov's walking on water like a check of WHO's going to eat that egg like somebody is going to to end up with document hands powered by the time. The next episode is probably halfway through. I suspect it's not going to be like the final. Reveal that like somebody else has as those abilities. I I feel like this is something that the seventh cavalry like joking is been you know. He's explicitly stated that he wants to become a new document Hatton. So that's what he's going to try to do do you guys think that I don't know. Do you have any other theories on. Who will ultimately gain those powers? We know that WHO wants them. But who do you think might actually get them. I think the signs are pointing to Angela and Maybe she'll get it through an egg because we've seen so many Feats of the eggs eggs viewing show not showing up then being smashed I think amber document Hatton Said said specifically he could put his chemical makeup in a Substance and that substance be consumed by person. So it seems like it's something that Angela will consume in some way But I probably a lot of people will be vying for whatever that thing is and trying to get his powers. I'm wondering if I think that will reeves already has these abilities. Because we see him form when this alliance with Doctor Manhattan earlier in the episode this was I think ten years prior to the events that we're seeing seeing in two thousand nineteen I wonder if doc Manhattan had slowly been feeding will reeves these these abilities a little bit because early on in the series he eats an egg. And I'm wondering why didn't he eaten egg in the first episode. Thanks I'm wondering if it's like slowly like these. These abilities are being doled out to him. Maybe that could explain why he look so good for his age. Why he's able to sort of rise up out of that wheelchair and walk around without a problem early on in the show? He explicitly tells Angela that he's doctor. Manhattan and we thought that was a joke at the time but maybe part of him wasn't lying maybe a part of them actually is kind of document Hatton at that point I I guys. What if it's a buffy the vampire slayer situation and we all become doctor Manhattan? It's a world of new guides. Oh interesting I have not seen buffy so I didn't understand that reference but I'm okay well at the end of the vampire slayer she gets her powers to all the women who are Potential slayers of the world. And it's basically this big empowering thing because she's no longer the one chosen hero but it's something that she disseminates to all the women who can and now fight and be strong and powerful so you're thinking that this scenario maybe maybe the Melinda maybe that's what the Millennium Tower does is it instead of shutting down Dr Manhattan or destroying his power set. Maybe it distributes it to everyone and then makes nobody special by making everybody. Everybody's special is that maybe I maybe we're in the crackpot section here so we can get away with the world of new Gods. That's what it is everyone. Everyone will be a God and and the world will be forever changed at all. No I liked it idea because there are several heads I would love to explode so you just blow up some Ed's once I get these powers So I wanted to mention we already talked horseshoe thing I wanted to sort of start wrapping up here by talking about Luke Man. We've mentioned this character a couple times I was reading the PDF pedia entries earlier this morning before we started recording and it to me at all but confirms arms that that character is actually agent PD so in this week's PD pedia entries we get to read a teenaged Dale PD the FBI agent the character his attempted synopsis of Fog Dancing. Which is the book that I mentioned earlier? That Adrian is reading. Mrs Clark was also reading getting it on her front porch in the beginning of a couple of episodes ago. In the world watchmen. This book was written by a character named Max Shea whose fictional you know. He's a writer who wrote the tales of the black freighter. The pirate comics within the Superhero. Graphic novel watchmen. He was one of the I Guess Literary Very Slash artists slash whatever scientists collective that were kidnapped and forced to work on the squid plot for Adrian vite and and murder them to tie up the loose ends and make sure that nobody figured out his endgame there. So fog dancing is this book that has has appeared a a bunch of times in the graphic novel. It's appeared a couple times on the show like I said agent deal PD when he was a a kid. According to this data entry tried to summarize summarize the synopsis of of this book in a contest because the book is famously so complex and convoluted that. There's a magazine out there that just it has an annual contest to see who can summarize the book and he describes the main character in that story like this. He says see him now. In your mind's eye moving through broiling clouds of Sunset Hayes wearing his gas mask and skin tight silver suit shimmering with SPF. Six six six looking slick and doing what must be done on in secret to keep you and me all of us free so I think the thing about the silver skin-tight suit shimmering with sunscreen. Green Gel is probably the origin story for Lou. Man and I suspect we're going to see that character. Try to to maybe save. Laurie Blake at the beginning of next week's episode. We're theorizing at the end of last week's episode that we might see that this week. But this episode religious focused on Doctor Manhattan on Angela and Adrian fight and we didn't really get any other updates from any other characters so I just wanted to point that out in case there's any lingering doubt about whether Dale PD is Luke. The that mystery has been solved. So before we as a deep dive for such an obscure character and I love it I really hope hope that lube man becomes like the the one and only doctor Manhattan by the time we listen. It'll be doctor Manhattan. I also wanted to mention that in in my conversation with Dave last night he was talking about. We're talking about like who might ultimately gain doctor Manhattan powers and the thing that Dave said. That really rang true to me was it might be a angela and cows. Kids like the show has dealt so much with the idea of generational trauma and like passing on things to new generations and the idea for those powers to be passed down to the next generation instead of just passed over to to Angela directly. Really I think makes a Lotta sense medically for what the has been doing but Chris. I don't think I heard from you on that. Do you have any any theories about who might ultimately gain those towers now. I mean it seems like it should be like as she is the main character of the show but that also seems like maybe too obvious. Maybe they'll pick someone else but I would be fine if it ended up being Angela. Angela yeah for me. I'll take Chris bowers all right so any closing thoughts. Anything we didn't talk about or any Maybe small moments that we didn't mention in this episode of the guys Specifically wanted to point out the one thing I want to touch on I mentioned this in my review is I'm very curious what the hell happened to the biological grandfather grandfather of those kids. He's played by Jim Beaver. WHO's a really good character actor? He was like they had that one scene where he's on the porch and he's never been seen again. I can't figure out what the deal because like Jim beavers a huge actor but he's he's a well enough known accurate that seems weird to cast him for just for that. So my only theory is maybe he is a member of the seventh cavalry because he seemed fairly racist because he was talking about red for nations and stuff like that. So maybe that's how he knew 'cause like it's not explained. How seven camel knows that callous doctor Manhattan right so I feel like maybe that has something to do with it? Maybe he's he's not. He's in the second Ken he found out. That is really interesting. Because I I think One thing we thought we got some answers to in this episode was the white night right right like the What happened in that White Knight? How survived that thing? Because he was Dr Manhattan and I think they say that he like as a reflex basically like zapped somebody away zapped away the person who is going to kill angel at the last second right and I think the implication is that cow doesn't doesn't know that he did that but I wonder if Jim beavers character if he is part of the Seventh Cavalry if he was in that house maybe as a or maybe looking in or something like maybe to protect the kids like he's theoretically he doesn't want those kids to be hurt because they're have his own bloodline. So maybe he saw Cowal teleport that person away and maybe he's the one who told the seven calorie. Hey this is the guy and got that whole thing in motion. When you think about that I don't? I don't think the kids are living with Angela. Kallay yet because they living with them only after her partner diverting late night thank you yup yup good good. We're where hugh things now could be something that maybe the person got zapped away. I mean they don't say the person has died per se. Maybe he just got zapped somewhere else woke up somewhere. He's like a Bruce Wayne in and like the dark knight rises. where he you know? He's just like somehow stumbles across a desert desert wasteland and returns to the Seventh Cavalry and explains the whole situation nations. So yeah that is. That's an interesting option too so I wonder if we're GONNA see him because you know that's the same thing that kind of we were thinking with Yahya Abdul Mateen the second like. He's a pretty well known character. It seems odd that he would be playing such a a support. You know like a basic supporting role as is cal. But obviously that turned into a much larger thing. I wonder if there is something in the finale that that hinges on Jim beaver. Because you're right. That does seem. I'm like a very very very small role for him to just pop in for this one you know like an hour of shooting basically and then you know not never be mentioned again so I I would not be surprised if that ended up coming back to be true so one other thing that somebody just sent me a tweet about. Apparently there's a blaxploitation Haitian movie from nineteen seventy seven called bar at the first Black Superman which I've never heard of before and I thought that was kind of cool Potential connection I wonder if if Damon Watson has writer's room know about this movie and maybe that's why Angela's last name is a barbeque. Obviously like Black Superman is something that you know blitz. Put Hobson Shaw aside aside for a second but That concept has been has been. Explicitly mentioned in watchmen like the Superman parallels between his upbringing. And we'll reeves's upbringing. I have been made very very clear in the show so I know I did. This movie existed but Yeah this nineteen seventy seven blaxploitation film. Abe Are the first black. Superman is out there. So maybe these people want to track that down. Maybe they can find more potential clues and things that may come back around in the finale. Somehow so so anything else that you mention one last thing. I wanted this notice. I think it's interesting. That Dr Manhattan. Every time he falls in love with a a younger human woman. It's always it's last is two times have been the daughters of the first generation of heroes of minute men so six bucks silk spectre with Lori and Now witha Angela and her grandfather being the being hooded justice. So I think that's interesting and I wonder like what that pattern is. And also also just the IT Met Doctor Manhattan sort of attempts to be human and to ground himself through love and ultimately failing in some aspects. Dr Manhattan definitely has type.

That wasn't that doesn't count as. It's not a full hob. Yeah. It's a muffled. Let me try this is me everybody quite as me doing what our time on this fat. Chris, trying I all the. Horn. It's amazing. And you're using your mouth again, I want to try real quick. I'm her chin, the trial. Silence. Not like I'm drowning, you know what it is that you need to release air from somewhere. So it comes out of your nose. Also, you might be all. Mike was on. That's how bad it. What it is. It's like when you're playing the trumpet. And you put that mute in it could still hear it, but it's just muffle. All right. I hate to ask you to do this, but of an ask anyway, can you hold your nose and try and? I can't I can't sing can't whistle. Thinking everything told you guys. Hold my known. I mean, everyone knows I've never heard of someone who can can you just how I need to hear you without holding your nose. No. I'll try. No. I'm gonna try to do this. The size of my nose gonna need both my hands to hold my nose. You can do it without holding your nose. I. And we just want to know that you can, yes. Can you hear it? I did it with my nose close over time now in here. Georgia. Yelling at us. Real talent there. It is Tim, how many times a day, do you, call Elias? At least once a day. Let's understand they are. They are all my best friend in the whole world. They are the official score keepers for the four major sports. They know stuff and can find stuff like nobody else, and they can do it in five minutes, sometimes less, but you have to go to them with an idea once in a why. So the little Marlins thing the other day this, what happens all the time, I, I can't find this myself, I don't have a database that goes back to nineteen hundred. So I called them and asked them, when's the last time this happened? And of course, I always credit them because I can't find without him. But at least I'm the stupid curious guys sitting around looking at stuff, and wondering, when's the last time that happened? And then I called the allies virtually every day. Tim do you know what their processes? I'm so curious like, do they have like their equivalent of a Google where they can just type a sentence in and then something pops up? Up like how indepth is their search? Well, again, I I'm not good at databases or how these things are done by they can run these queries on their computers and this stuff they come up with. So quickly is just stunning to me. And it's very, very rare that I called them and they say, no, we can't find that sometimes they told me, you know, I'm not gonna look that up. It's too stupid, which is good because I need to be told once in a while that is not worth one Tim, what is one of the things that you've asked Elias that is deemed too stupid for baseball. I think I did something like guys for first name last name that same like pitching in the same game they would have to go through, like every Martin or Martin Damm pitching in the same game the last time that happened. They're always very gentle with me. But every once in a while, they'll say, no, we can't find that it's too stupid. I completely reasonable question. I think it's a total waste of allies. This time. Has allies ever called you like how does. How does that work? No, I always call them. They always call me back, but cage only occasionally they'll call with something. And this is what I really know. The good one Jesse Winker of the reds, for instance hit his twentieth career home run. And he had already hit a home run. From all nine spots in the batting order the when I called for active players who've hit a home run from all nine spots of the batting order, John from the allies called the end. He was so excited to you're not gonna believe this that not only are there, forty seven active players that have done this, which stuns me there that many, but Jesse Winker took only needed only twenty homers to hit a home run from all nine spots in the batting order and hear someone at the alive, even just as excited as I am about this. That's what I know we found something truly pointless. It truly interesting. Did you say forty seven active players using God forty seven name? I thought there'd be fifteen forty seven and the day, the Joey Votto did it because he did it as a leadoff hitter the same day ever failed Garcia of the race. That is on the same day and Jesse weaker did it in the same day in the same game as teammates with Joey Votto? That's what you call a quirk gin and you can't do those without enormous help from the allies force bureau. Hey, tim. I wanna ask you about this in Kansas story. Okay. So for those that don't know, Kinzer has been struggling lately, thought I tend to be giving the hard time I guess it was yesterday. It's a Dinger appears to turn towards the fans and say FU, but then he denies it and says it was about pumping up his teammates. He was definitely saying it to the fans, right? Well, I haven't talked to any Kinzler, so I'm not certain what happened here. I can tell you. He is a very emotional player and he's dead. Of course, was a prison warden for many years. And he told me he did. He said, we had some interesting conversations at the dinner table when I was kid when his dad would come home for work. I always thought it was great that he was on the same team. Briefly with Phil coke whose dad was a prison guard so on the same team. They had the son of a prison warden and the son of a prison guard on the same team. And yet they never faced each other in a regular season game. They did once in a postseason game but they did collaborate on a one one four three double play coked Kinzler to first base that was like The Shawshank Redemption, double play warden to the guard. Let's go out to Jordan, Jordan. Go ahead. You're on with Tim Kirch. It. Hey, just wanted to know which one's more likely to happen. Billy coaching on little big league when he was twelve or hinder Rohan Gardner pitching for the cubs, whenever he was twelve. What's more realistic? Thanks. Well, those are totally ridiculous. Of course. Well, the big league usually don't learn how to play the big leagues till you're about twenty five how hard that game is, but I'll take I'll take you have a better chance of pitching in the big leagues at twelve because you might throw a strike that has hit so hard. But it goes right at them buddy. But a twelve year old hitter in the bigly would never put up all in play have absolutely zero chance of make contact and would be frightened out of their minds on the first ball buzzes tower. Let's go to Chris, Chris. Go ahead. You're on with Tim Carter. They Tom be you can help me with the mayor of having my wife. I've never seen my wife and big bird in the same room at the same time. And when I'm watching Sesame Street my kids biggers on television, my way around so town is my wife. They bird good question. Yeah. No, your wife is not big bird, but my son Jeff now twenty five was Otto the orange for four years at Syracuse. So when we would go to a game he was always. Yeah, he was the math got it for four years, I spent fifty thousand dollars so he could dress up a little orange all day. But every time I wife and I would go to a game, he would always find us and come up and play around with us in the crowd as the orange. Yeah. That was, I'm, I'm just amazed. You didn't name your kid Elias. Let's go to. Let's go to Andrew Andrew, go ahead. You're on with Tim Kirch it that is five ROY. Hey, Tom argest? Here's what was your first ever car.

Let's house where to guess. I let's see if anyone get it, right. Oh, oh, you're gonna guess, for. I don't want you to answer anything and forget about the Josh bell part of the question because no one cares. All right. That Chris, what was Tim coaches. I call a white minivan. It was some kind of Plymouth ROY I think it was a Ford for. But let's keep in mind, there was a Hammy damn. Okay. Older. Pontiac Ford Pinto. I am. All right. You still my answer. Like. The closest. Meena. It was a Pontiac Catalina. Yes. And. And it had like two hundred thousand miles on my father gave it to me because it was it was either that or give it away, I forgot to put enough oil in it. I loaned it to my girlfriend and believe me. I only have one of those not long after that you con. These up on her these up and it just like locked up and that was the end of that car. Then I have to get a Datsun speed to ten that was my first, like, car that I bought by myself, it was a stick shift. I didn't know how to drive it. And we were at our we were at a shopping center, my brother's year older, but it's so much better at everything than I am. He had to get out of the passenger seat and get over to the driver's side to make sure we can get the stick shift car off of the hill, without rolling back and hitting car behind. That's how incompetent I was as a kid. Timmy, we love you we'll speak to you to next week. You are you're an amazing creature and you should have more self-confidence. Okay.

It's actually true, these spots like this just goes and play off him. Are you actually going to be there the whole time because I've done these events with you before? Sometimes. Time I should be there right on time. Yeah. If my planes on time, I know I'm gonna be there for the I'm excited for the event. We're gonna have a lot of fun night before day of going on Krause store lacrosse dornam. There is at least thirty percent chance. You don't make it. I would put that at around fifty five percents. We've got so Trey is on the shell Pennzoil performance line. Because Chris, and I were having discussion, a caller called in and he asked us earlier, if you could take ten putts on the eighteenth hole Augusta the putt that tiger, right? What was that? We're going to Trey wingo you have been assaulting the clock. I am so mad at you still have to get to why Mike Ryan's really mad. It's that mic off. I listened to me. I love you now. Listen to me. Trey wingo says go golick g you know how long the putt was that? Tiger had the eighteenth hole of Augusta. Do we know exactly how long haven't had the exact distance right around fourteen footer floods? It's called fourteen fifteen feet someone called up and said, you could do ten putz from exactly we're tiger putted on the eighteenth green of Augusta National. And if you hit one of them, you get to be the masters champion, if you don't you can never gafa, get Chris. And I both passed on that opportunity because we love golf so much is that right? Chris, that is right? I'm curious when they say, we're going to be the masters champion are people going to look at us, and be like, they're not really the masters hit a putt. Or are they going to be tricked into thinking? We're actually the masters. You've got a green coat your masters champion, Ed. So Trey wingo said that you and I could easily hit one of those ten punts. So I just wanted to bring him on real quick because trays gonna play golf today. So Trey, I don't wanna misrepresent what you said. To me what you text it to me. You feel like me Chris, you're anyone who plays golf, who's reasonably good. Good hit one of those ten pots on the eighteenth Augusta. If you have the same putt ten times apologies to corporate Mike for good total non clock integrity. Get where he's somebody Michael. I, I have enough faith in you that if you have ten of the same, damn putz, you're making one of them. Okay. So this is what I'd like to do you plan on playing golf to that. Well, David ends in y yes. So what I would like you to do is. I'm not asking you to go to Augusta. I know you have access there and you'll take one day but I would like you to go out to you're putting green okay when you can't and I want you to put ten balls down fourteen feet out fifteen feet out. Have you want give the phone to someone because I don't believe I could do this, and I don't think you can even on your own putting green, I want you to put the phone in the hands of someone who could broadcast live for us. And if you don't hit one of your ten punch, you cannot take off tonight about that. Does that fair? I how would we broadcast live? How, how would that just going to have a guy on the phone is gonna take us through this? That's all I mean, you know, hopefully, a guy that that we could trust. Okay. Yeah. Okay. All right. I'm working. I'm on it. All right. It's a tell us just call us back. When you get out to the putting green, okay? All right, man. These are some serious stakes can't play golf today. Really not risking a lot. 'cause, you know, if I don't play today, you know what happens tomorrow. I'm playing golf that straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless. Everything for less.

They finally had to do something to prove you. There were different flavors in any of that. For the latest headlines and information. Tune in sports center on ESPN radio all throughout the day, by the way, I'm in studio giving you straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless. Everything for less only a WalMart meet a studio giving you the straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless. Everything for last only mall. Walmart, hopefully will be here to give you the straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless. Everything for last even the straight thought that straight talk set for us to we shall up. We shall see Pablo shows up me to kinds. How'd you frame, what was the phrase, you use for group tax group, text or everything? Yeah. That's pretty much like the new click, put that on the poll Billy or group, text everything. Because we were talking about before the show, the idea of the Golden State Warriors of right now with Kevin Durant, in the fold probably had a group chat with him and Steph curry, and Klay Andrey Mon. But now that things are, you know, Kevin Durant off the court, did they form another group chat without him outside of the group? She's so in that group. Chat. You just have clay curry Andrey Mon. Is that it go Joe? That's it. Is it dollar in that group? Chat dollars in both probably Enron. Okay. So he's also a part of the groups yet is bogut in the group chat. He's not an so it's just it would Dala Steph curry Klay Thompson. Draymond green in a group chat and they're talking about Kevin Durant. And the fact that this is a lot of fun winning without wasn't that cool last night. And they'll accidentally put it in the old group, Chad and starve some controversy. But you told me during the break, you are not in any group chats. I don't really like group chats. Invited to any I mean you know, you could feel free to invite me. I mean I just I don't know how much partake I just don't like it gets very confusing. Older Meena and every group chat has that one person that doesn't really do much, and then every once in a while comes through and respond kind of out of nowhere, and you're like oh, they're still in here Cain on real questions with the warriors thing is who's the guy in the secret group chat that seat. Also secretly likes D And his telling him to be a hold on a second. Couple of things on the poll, do Klay Thompson. Steph curry, and Draymond green have a separate group. Chat going on right now. Is it would Dala in that group chat, and then who is the guy that is snitching back to K D within that group chat? Who do you think that feel like it's Steph? I. Steph, is the most fun without catchy. But I think he's also just kind of nice not playing well, because that's the person who snitching back to Katie. Wondering. I don't think Livingston's in the group, I think it's clay, it could be good dolla, because him Katie maybe have shared investments in, like Uber or something like that. Talking talking to the boardroom, but watch on ESPN plus, but that's why go Joe has it without Dowa because I think clay, it staff and Draymond probably know that. And so it would all not in this particular group chat. So but you have a group chat going on right now. Is that is that a is that fair because group chats are everything I was bragging about how Billy Chris, and I we grew check owing. I I'm really enjoying it. Wow. Is this thing? I wanted to be thing. I thought it was just like a one off like, oh, hey, let's do chat today, and then it just disappears. It started on Tuesday because I was leaving the show walking out after we recorded for my podcast. We did a segment and they asked me billion. Chris asked me. What do you do like during the day in Miami, after you're done? And I told them the sad truth, which is I go back to my hotel. I sit by myself for about an hour. Then I go to the gym, and I watch highly questionable at the gym, which is really awkward experience. Because I'm watching I'm like, jogging. Let's real, I'm deliverable, and I'm watching myself, and then I'm laughing. What are you doing, Jim? So are you using yourself to motivate yourself, Jim? I'm watching this. I'm gonna watch anyways. So I feel like I I'm doing elliptical very slowly to answer your. Thank you. Downgrades from jogging, but the problem is all be laughing at something poppy says, and if someone walks by it looks like I'm laughing at myself watching myself on the television, while I'm working out. And so to prove it to you guys. I texted a picture of myself watching myself working out at the gym, and somebody saw me taking the picture myself. On the television on the elliptical screening. But that's how the group check started the secondhand shame. I feel right now on your behalf. Like your barest to do the elliptical why I feel like oh yeah. Get your arms in there to everyone knows elliptical scenario. What, what do you mean? You look too dangerous. Yeah. I get a full body workout on the it's better than the bike, the bike you burn like zero calories. I never feel anything on the bike. Yeah. We got the group chat going last night. How can you guys the band in? We were texting pictures of ROY member the whole. Wow. Wow. So now ROY is not only not in the ROY Rohan. He's a subject complement. I'm gonna ROY was the compliment. But now you don't think it was. Can we say what it was Billingsley? Why Billy's looking for that Mike? And roy. How do you guys feel about not being involved in the group chat, Mike, I'm fine? And ROY ruins every group chat, because he's the only guy without an iphone and. Apple is evil. He makes everything green everyone. Ooh, the green guy, you send us a picture of Damian, litter Lillard. And you said my wrong for thinking Dame, Lillard kind of reminds me of a more confident ROY. That's not exactly a compliment. Just said it she said it looked like ROY didn't have to add the confident, part. I mean I'm confident good. See not confident she's totally right though. Damian Lillard in ROY lookalike. Okay. That's fine. But do we feel like ROY is lacking in confidence? And Damian Lillard has a lot of confidence. He has more confidence than I do. So a great looks like. Don't you feel like as far as people to look like that's pretty good? Good good with that. Who is the most confident on this show? Ooh. Wow. None. Guess I think Mike. Mike, right. Mike Reiss pretty confident. Billy gets like the most improved in that area. I feel like Billy has shot up like a rocket as far as the confidence goes. I don't know that I'm necessarily not confident. I think I'm very comfortable being Billy. You guys bring back therapy couch, all of a sudden, this seems very introspective. Little Billy have to say about all this issuing whose little Billie. Yeah. The inner child. Look, I don't. No, I make money moves. Chris.

Pablo Meana said she has a revelation. I mean, go ahead, the floor is yours. Loud. Low Tory revelation beforehand. Also really were you? You were going to text me beforehand. But instead, you said you know what? Let's do this on national radio. Can I just say, yes or no? Can. I reveal some I'm not gonna. We're all ready. I know how we've been doing those like Snapchat. Filters were you look like a boy or a girl? I can't see Pablo behind me does he look upset right now. Oh, no. He's across from co Joe and I will do the play by play. Don't let Pablo still look at them. Everyone's been doing those filters where you make yourself look like a boy. If your girl in vice versa, Chris, Cody sought his he was very pleased with how he looked fantastic. I texted Pablo about it, and I, I was like, you know, I think every Asian or like kind of indiscriminate, non white guy looks like me, and he sent me his, and it was the most beautiful woman I've ever seen in my life. Like I guess. So it wasn't just the photo. It was the post that he I'm gonna be create the POS. He did for his his picture. It was kind of like this. Oh, tasteful on the chess, it is, honestly, like the most gorgeous human being. I've seen in a long could I see? Could I see we're not gonna put it on the air want to see it? I'm gonna I'm gonna show Mike because. It's like is it like not safe? Either I don't either gone down a path to where the internet is going to end up seeing. Hose, I had was me about to faint onto a fainting couch because God Pablo. I wish you could to face right now he is overcome. I can't see Stu face. And that's the appropriate react. Yes, go Jo's a shock right now. He's ten I am. I mean Pablo your perfect, you really are. You're amazing your hands a little too big for your face, but your perfect. So Mike Ryan is not making a similar face to the one being Joe seeing the pace your Mike. What is going through your mind right down my 'cause my a very different face on right now? Well, the right side of your face looks great. I like to and just like that half as my good side. Good side, is my left side. It looks like a totally different person. And you sort of have like a cockeyed effect. Wow. It's not sick. The eyeballs on on the center liver. One, one is looking this dare you dare you bring up my asymmetrical features that is not a filter. That's just me. I don't have the golden ratio. Okay. But like the live LeBron's ratio. The left is just steering off somewhere not into the camera. And now you bring up the fact that sometimes I believe you bring that up. This is not gender filter thing. This is just a Mike criticizing my general facial appearance, but it's not like that in real life. I'm not really. Sure why the left is just gonna wonky. I gotta say, Mike female me isn't into you either. A woman in real life. Sure. Number. I haven't done it. I haven't done that Snapchat field. Let's right now with my hold on. She's not attractive. And now he's trying to shame hobby. We'll see. We'll see how much confidence symmetric. Oh, Mike Ryan really has. I just gotta make sure my eyes are straight. I think I think Joe. Here right stew? Yeah. Doing good. You dog. We're all doing it now. I feel so alone. This is great pictures of each other right now. Yes, we should probably get more people talking. Yeah. Yeah, I know. Stu gods? Looks like my friend's wife. I, I don't know how to deal with this wave that Chris, what did you say what you probably have more people talking at the same time on? Yeah, yeah. Starting at the same time. Yeah. I gotta say kind of into female Mike, really. Would female, Mike and female Pablo out for a night on the town. Do some damage.

The text string I was on so I think we will get in a moment to Mike Ryan and drew God's being her fantasy draft. That's GonNa take about two or three days as a sports continues to lap ever so gently on our show shores, just basically we are on our hands and knees, crawling towards sports and Billy and Chris. I can't believe it, but they have found a reason to be excited about the marlins season after so many betrayals. Guys after Billy's written off this club now todd Hollandsworth their broadcasters saying the MARLINS have a legitimate chance to be world series champion. Put It on the pole. Guillermo at Lebatardshow is Todd Hollandsworth out of his mind, sixty games spreads. I mean every team as a chance here Dan. Oh, well I think if I'm not mistaken the original marlins and this is our wheelhouse. Baseball the original Marlins I think started thirty and thirty one. Now they ended up losing about one hundred games because those last hundred games really grind down the teams that aren't actually that good Let's see if we can do this, you guys. Can you guys do the whole lineup the whole opening day lineup for the original marlins. Games they lost. They lost a ton of games. They started thirty and thirty one. which is the only argument, basically the only argument? Any baseball team could make is why not us? It's got to be somebody. I'm Charlie off was the the first pitcher ever for the MARLINS right starting pitcher? That is correct Charlie Hoff. who was a forty four year old knuckleballer? Charlie huff was on the bump behind the plate numbers zero nine, but meet to Santiago. At first place. We had arrested Strada shortstop Walt Weiss. Third Base Dave, magazine Second Base Rep Barberie than in center field. We had Scott posed before. Chuck car got their left field. I'm assuming was Jeffco nine and I. Don't Remember Junior. Felix started in right field or not that he started right field of. Clothing Felix closing the Game Brian Harvey. that. Remember what I had for dinner. We can I feel as though? The show could have done that including the Scott Pose Chuck Card change because you kind of remember. There are certain things that you remember from your childhood. And stuff like that is one of them. How old were you guys with that ninety three team? You guys, were you? Were six and seven and eight years old, weren't you? Oh, Tony, saying he was two years old. Tony couldn't have named any of those players. He didn't know anything about no Scott pose beating outs. Chuck car during spring. Training for that original Centerfield job I think I was four or five. I think it was five at the time yeah times. What's the matter with you guys today? I can't believe after all the portrayals after all the stupidity after the fact that they've been run like a business and a poorly run business for a long time that you guys are right back. Right back on the MARLINS. I felt alive, last night Dan eligible eight to one in the eighth inning. We don't have to get into the fact that the bullpen Boola lead and they ended up losing, but that's irrelevant. They were up eight to one. Even blowing that lead I felt alive I was like the Marlins. Their back were up or down. It's a roller coaster I. got goosebumps just thinking about it and. Guys, let me ask you something in terms of the viewing experience because what I've been told by. People know about these things because it's Disney because it's ESPN because it's giant rightsholder because it's the NBA that this televised product is actually going to be something that is stimulating to you that they're going to be a little progressive about it. It's not going to quite just be guys on a court that feels like a scrimmage quarter. A practice court baseball. Though can't do all that much. Hamid Baseball's good with advanced media, but his baseball going to do very much in the way of graphics and Sprucing up its product visually with no fans. Dan Baseball was electricity as it. Were you watching you watching watching what? Why was watching Spring Training Baseball on? July summer camp. Yeah, come on, Damn, get with it. anyways listen. It was great I have a couple of things that we can talk about here. I have ways because yesterday. We've realized baseball not very different when there's no crowd there, but I have solutions visually of how to make it seem more like a regular baseball game right now. Yesterday I was watching the Marlins and the braves, and the crowd was empty right and it was raining and I was like. Please God. Don't let there be a rain delay. That would be the ultimate thing that would happen. Here's a rain delay right? There was no. No rain late, but it made me think when it's rainy. Baseball stadiums are pretty much empty anyways, so what I'm thinking is moving forward. What every team should do is they should play in a light rain. They get like those machines that Hollywood has to make rain, and this put a couple dummies down the outfield with Ponchos, and it will look like any baseball game ever it'll just be like five or six idiots out in the crowd with Ponchos and rain, and it'd be perfectly normal now. I know what you're thinking. How else can we make this better? Good question Dan because they were doing yesterday. Twenty twenty teaching us. How many minutes are out there? How many people getting lemons and turning it into lemonade? Eight did they were pumping in crowd noises and you couldn't really tell. There was no crowd because of what they were doing now. Some of the noises that were missing. The vendors right so this is what I'm thinking and I'd like to reach out to our audience with the you know. What is this the biggest show in the history of the world ever history so with that audience and that base. This is what I think. We should do I think we should solicit fans sending US noises that happened in the stands that they don't normally have the vendors primarily the vendors, but also may be like chance that they do know like controversial. Please leave those out and thinking what we do is, we can make. Make a collection and we could make a three hour recording, and we can put it on a mystery create one day, and then we could do is you can at home? You can just play that playing like your Google Speaker whatever while you're watching the game and it'll be like you're at the game. You'll get the crowd noise. Three hour recording housing. We could reach out to some stadiums have stadiums give us recipes of some of their food? It's GonNa be great, and you know who brought it yesterday. We can get to this later. Hollandsworth Rodney yesterday. was talking about absolutely everything. How many popsicles he has an day while he's been at home everything. He was saying how he wanted the popsicles. They told them a one point Paul. Severino, said Todd you gotta calm down, and he said I'm not coming down on this season. Six Games sprint on the home back. He even got to work yesterday early Dan What an enjoyable viewing experience yesterday for the Marlins and wow what he's working for. You realize how limited your future is in this business on the only thing that we can get you excited about is Marlins, baseball and MTV's challenge. You realize you need to broaden the things that you get excited about. You need to make it a little bit wider so that you could cast a wider career net. What do you think about that mystery? Create idea. How were we have basically a three hour stadium recording? We just released that so that fans get right on that. Go ahead and that it's all yours. Proprietary domain go ahead. Make a three hour mystery great of just fan noises. Should they send audio files over tenure your? Email your. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, don't do that. Email just tweeted at us at me at your at Lebatardshow, and then we should get hashtag going with. Should it be Hashtag stadium sounds so just tag us with a recording of something hashtag stadium sounds, and then we'll put it together and then hopefully next week. We can put that out, so everybody can joy baseball games together. This is a baseball specific when we. We move onto the different sports on the other sports comeback than original Marlins team finished sixty, four, ninety, eight good first half, though you're right, thirty, seven, fifty and up every first season, first of all bill is baseball SNOB. Don't base ball. People get mad when you call them. Stadiums instead of ballparks thought that they got upset about that sort of thing. Dan, I'm not here for this today. I'm not going to be happy dividing us. This is a time for unity and bringing the people together. There's been a lot going on in two thousand and twenty, and we don't need the vision over the stadium Bob Ballpark debate right now. All right stadiums ballparks, whatever it is just your sounds. You know what that's totally fair point billy and it would have a little more weight behind it if you guys all as a group. Group weren't so eager to correct me saying spring training by making it summer camp like all of you leaned in to the zoom, and we're like no Dan No. It's not spring training this summer camp summer camp. We're here for you. We don't want you to sound silly. Did you say somebody was doing twelve hours of Burke's twelve hours? Yeah of Burke's Yes five thousand, two hundred ninety seven burpee squat thrusts where they stand in between repetitions at twelve hours. Good God yeah. So if you're listening last segment. You know that stugatz loves to take a popular opinion. It's an easy opinion. It's one of his favorite things. One of my favorite things to watch to God says he launches one of these easy stands missile. We have easy stance imaging Mike. Did we ever make any imaging for that? Where he basically cups a hand to? It's easier to get celebrated by the audience for telling you know athletes to do things like just give their money over to the fans. And you know Malcolm. Brogden. Got Corona virus to God's while he was protesting. He's someone who believes in helping others. thinks it's a big bigger thing than basketball. He is presently working on causes include social reform, education and bringing water to Africa, but you also want him to get better testing for the people of Orlando when it comes to the coronavirus faster testing Malcolm, Brogden should be taken care of that as well. He should do more I think testing is important by the. The time. You get a test back fourteen days later. You've wondered if you've contracted the virus fourteen more times, I I think it's a big problem in terms of controlling this thing moving forward at am just looking to the leagues to help a month saying fun the entire thing I am looking for the League's to raise money out. That's it all right and so what I would say to you on this front because I know what happens here, okay? In, this particular business whenever someone makes the argument, take money away from the athletes or the league's everyone applauds. It's the thing to do just yes. Take money from them and give it to me I'm just wondering what country you think you live in. That money doesn't bring all sorts of advantages, because if you prefer better healthcare, Canada can help you out as different country to live in when. When it comes to equal health care of course I would say to anyone listening. Everyone should have the same access to health care. But what world are you living in? It ain't this one. This ain't the country you're like. What were you living in the people with money? The ones with the better access to healthcare, furthermore what I would say to you stugatz. Is Basketball particularly interesting subject because? We don't deserve sports to return right now. But how are we fixing it by just throw in every conceivable amount of money into Orlando building a bubble for one hundred fifty million dollars. That is the expense account that executives are spilling over the bar on this one, because they're trying to rescue billions of dollars in an economy so Dan. Straight we're going to keep those people healthy. It's terrible. Look. It's a terrible look that they get all the access to testing as poor people don't get the access to testing, but that's the country you live in money wins like that. How many more examples would you want? What presently living in right now? When the wealth gap continues to get bigger and bigger, the greatest gifts that come from having something like a radio show, you've heard me say this before it's not my quote. It's Kornheiser. Coin Kornheiser says you get good table tables at a restaurant and you could destroy your enemies. That's the reason to have a radio show. I would add another what you can get your doctors on the phone. You could just pick up the phone and call your doctors have that access i? Did I called my doctor? He told me to go to a local park not to his office I did. It took fourteen days to get a result I mean I bet you that doesn't happen to Mike Greenberg. Hold. Let's sell some ads. Annual tradition around these parts Dan asking if we have easy stance, alert imaging me reminding him in the audience why it's not a regular part of our cannon, because it is so unimpressive, EC stands man. That's it. I could. Get better does. It I. Well I've been waiting for years for some flair to be added to plan. Stands man what is? What are you open mics updated some of these bruce. Never been fully invested easy stance man and getting off the ground you can tell by the production just took a Saturday gave me, and we don't sound for everything. You could just say it's an easy We'll do Zach Lowe at eleven am by the way. That'll policy from state farm gets you collision coverage and this radio ad from state farm gets you coverage of this beloved nineties hits. For more coverage is in State Farm Dot Com. Stood out.

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 NBA title? 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 doesn't have a moment in the postseason, a series a game A. A shot in Houston and I think to be really appreciated, and by the way he's got a couple of bad ones. We all remember that meltdown against the spurs could be really appreciated. He's GonNa. have to have some moments in big games that we all remember is their way at all to quantify how much better Lebron's about to be because he's never entered the postseason with four months of rest. I don't think so I mean I. Guess You could look at. You could look at you. Know there. We have these statistics for how fast players move and cut, and those statistics tend to be a lot sort of faster and more explosive at the beginning of seasons when guys don't have that wearing tears. You can look at that, but I think you could ask that same question about. Away Leonard who obviously sort of the poster guy for load management, and has to be sort of treated a different way throughout the whole season to make it through the NBA finals will now he's got four months off to, and he's on the team. That's to me just as good if not better than the Lakers Zach. Is there a team in this environment? That was playing well towards the end, maybe added a piece along the way that we're not aware of because we're paying attention to other stuff that can in this bubble in this play Al playoff of this format that can make a surprise run through this format. As I surprise teams, I think I mean if we're really characterizing surprise, I think the only team that really stands out from that perspective is Philadelphia just because they've always had the raw talent and size and defense. The chemistry has been a mess. The pieces haven't fit, but they've just revamped their starting line-up shake Milton is GonNa Start Out Horford's GonNa come off the bench now. Ben Simmons had a back injury when the season stop he's healthy. Now they're fix. They're probably going to move up to fourth or fifth. If you're looking for true surprise, I think that team has the talent if they ever get it together really to to be a very dangerous in. Zach thank you for being on with US check out the low post podcast at your convenience. It is some good basketball information. Thank you sir. Always a pleasure guys be safe exactly. Whole. Let sell. Some ads. Got There is some news involving jets owner Woody Johnson. That I don't think you're gonNA like very much. We're going to get into that in a second, but we've been asking you to support the people who support us. You don't know anything right now. About what Johnson Correct Stugotz. No all right because we've got. We've got well I. Don't want to get into just yet. I'm going to read about it because this is just breaking, it says CNN story and it It looks bad, but let me get. More information before I start reading it. I am at a genuine law so I will allow students to choose where we go next here because we've got a number of different items worth discussing one. Mike Ryan continues to struggle with the installation of a door as he tries to become unsuccessfully. A handyman to billy is said to be a different creature on cruise lines than he is in real life. I want some more details on. On that three has something for car salesman four Tony is having an existential midlife crisis at twenty nine years old and five. Chris's wondering If you either have to show up to work on Monday after a hypothetical long weekend, having not slept all weekend or having not showered always weekend. Which would you choose? So those are the five on the table. Everyone's got a little something here one. Sleep. And that is a that is a tough decision because you've been teasing billy cruise line that is A. Village shaking his head. Let's start there Chris. Can you please tell me I'm just done with you? Installing tactics today like. Roy. You're taking so long to get to anything. And you're sort of mulling and muttering and board and already lazy. So I'll just start with Billy Chris. Billy doesn't want to do this. What have you learned about cruise line? Billy? Well Billy has this reputation on this shell of being. You know sometimes meek, sometimes, not being you know a big. He's not thought of as a big party guy, but apparently when billy goes on a cruise? He turns into what he calls crews billy now. I like to call this character billy crews. We. We haven't really decided what his actual name was going to be, but I was learning I would love to go on a cruise with billy because I just want to see him, and he just loosens up. It's the drinks flow and I. Just WanNa see that billy. Is that a real depiction of Billy Cruise, or is that like? Do you get the all you can? Billing crews get the all you can drink package. This is a misrepresentation by Chris Cody based on local our conversation. We had like two weeks ago and he wants to just. is similar to like a shopping cart and his flag football thing that he just wants to make happen, so he'll just keep saying these things until they become reality. What I told him was. We were talking about cruises and I said I love the cruises. Where you get a bunch of stops because I'm not one that likes to have days at sea I like I like to go on a cruise in comeback exhaust like I like to. To Go zip-lining and I go parasailing I ride. ATV's like surfboards dangerously down the street in these little islands, and I'm going like this and I'm like trying to play it up and ham it up for the cameras. The companies are mentioned the ATV's add all these things and Chris during this into something entirely different where he makes me some sort of deviant of kind possibly of a sexual nature, and that's what's going on here. Wow, okay. Liquors Billy crews villi crews a deviant of a sexual nature. You're no not at all, not at all. That's what I'm saying. That's what's going on. I'm one. The climbs waterfalls on one that goes through rainforest. Types of things at Chris has a whole different opinion. There seems to be a real-life crews billy in a fictitious billy crews. If you will and that's the one that Kris wants to exist, that doesn't exist. You would agree that the name Cruz if you add it to just about any I. David automatically makes you cooler like if I become Johnny crews as opposed Jon Wiener I am if Cooler Daddy crews is so much cooler. The Dan Le Guitar Mikey cruises so much cooler than Michael. Ryan I mean Tony Cruz is probably the coolest of all of us credible name. I know Danny Cruz. Thank you billy excellent contribution as always. Elite. Hit the nail right on the head from the aspect of all. This was I just wanted to get billy cruise off the ground. That's what this was all about. Jose crank you Mike Excellent contribution as well Tom. Cruise the more Chris, cody, the more the is in general talk the more discussing you realize they are as a family and that they don't abide by any social norms. Chris your shopping cart fiend, it's disgusting. You do not clean up after your dog and the way that you should and your father shampoos hair in the pool. You guys are like both of you should be living together in a trailer. You should never have moved out of that trailer. Just be you and your disgusting debt Dan. This is so rich I know for a fact that you leaving public with a full shopping cart. There is no shot that you are walking that shopping cart all the way back in to the grocery store. You are leaving it right near the front of where your car was. And you're letting you're wrong. You're wrong. I always tell Mike Ryan to take the cart back. Asked. Let's sell some ads. Gregory crews. You'd be more likely to go to him during a show, thanks. Greg Cody. It's become clearer and clearer. The more that Chris and Greg Cody talk that we needed them to talk less because the more they talk, you realize they're disgusting. Businesses around the world, today isn't a restart. It's a rethink that's why they're partnering with IBM to Change How they from supply chains to customer service. Let's put smart to work visit. IBM DOT COM slash smart to learn more. There haven't been a great many instances like this in celebrity I remember when Charlie Sheen was going down addicts crazy public path shouting at everybody that he was winning while descending into the horror of addiction in a way that scared his family It was the rare mental illness breakdown that we were able to somehow enjoy because I guess at the time we didn't have enough understanding of addiction and mental illness to understand that Charlie. Sheen was spiraling out of control. Now? The same thing seems to be happening with Kanye West. where his behavior is so odd that it feels like a mental breakdown. And he has spoken to his bipolar issues before he has also spoken to being off his meds, and it'll make you manic and he was already. You know an ego maniac narcissist on his meds. But Dave Chapelle went to visit him in Wyoming. stugatz and Kanye West was touched by. The friendship in that and I thought it was interesting. The Dave Chapelle did that even as Kanye West put him in this terrible spot where they're on a video together. He basically just telling him to be funny again and again and Dave. Chapelle can't like do that that way. Couldn't do it that way where you was just telling him say something funny, say something, light and pels like I'm not a you know it's not how I do this right, but he was uncomfortable because he's there to help a friend who seems to be having a mental breakdown and I remember seeing. Dave Chapelle on inside the actors studio with James Lipton. If you don't remember the show James Lipton has passed away, but he had a classroom where he asked a lot of artists he got real creators to sit down in a classroom and talk to his students, and he got the most famous of the famous and Dave Chapelle sat there one time and talked about what happened with Martin. Lawrence and Martin Lawrence going crazy in. in the streets of Hollywood with some sort of episode. That was very public. and Dave chapelle framed this as I. Know Martin Lawrence to be an exceptionally strong person. What does Hollywood due to these people? What is fame? What is celebrity? How does it contaminate? How does it corrupt where you become this Harvey Weinstein Monster where you have so much power that you think you could basically just whip it out and have sex with anybody that you want like what is it about? The debauchery of Hollywood and celebrity that makes Dave Chapelle, somehow understand what Kanye West is going through and go to. Wyoming, during a pandemic in order to reach out to Kanye West because he's having. A. Public Meltdown that people are really really join laughing at Stugatz there. Is I feel for as much as we've evolved on the mental health front as much as we've evolved on understanding that addiction is a sickness. We haven't evolved that much from what we were watching with Charlie. Sheen because we're doing it again to Kanye West because it's just easier to laugh at than actually contemplate whatever darkness. He's crawling through as guy who's a billionaire as guy who's got you know the Kardashian family. Has has multiple billionaires in it and the world that they've chosen to create right that has these are very strong. NBA Players Lamar Odom. WHO end up in that world, and then what happens with the reality elements of that that ends up. Spending everybody like the reality show elements of the fame that contaminate that absolutely where Kanye West is having a, he's having a public mental breakdown, and it's being met with a great deal of laughter. I didn't realize that that now listen. I partook in the laughter when Charlie Sheen had his breakout and we were doing shows as you pointed out Part of me as I get older regrets doing some of that stuff. I Charlie Sheen just announced that he quit cigarettes, and it's been like two years, and he's proud of himself and he's trying to. Become a better person as he gets older and. I remember laughing at him while he was crumbling and now armed with some age. Maybe some perspective I regret doing that I didn't realize people were actually laughing. At Kanye West that is the case like there is laughter. People earn his his meltdown. His behavior. Here's what's happening here and it's not hard to understand. This person was was an is an eagle monster, but he was an is an eagle monster, who now seems to have been very public with its vulnerabilities on how it is that he's fighting his mind what? I have found very often. Often with people who have these monster he goes to God's not always, but very often is. It's just hardened shell for some actual insecurities. Who knows what Kanye West's daily life is like must be pretty dark. It's wealthy, but it must be pretty dark if you're reading some of these things and you have a personality where you are fighting your mind in front of all of us and the reaction of us as you try to explain yourself is is largely laugh at you because we love a good come up. We love to have ego humbled. and. To mock the plight of celebrities, so those things run together and Kanye West ends up being less human. He just becomes a cartoon. He becomes a cartoon celebrity. WHO's not in any kind of pain? He's just something that exists to mock because he's throwing it all away. I think a of people don't understand mental illness. They understand the breakdown that can come and results of from mental illness, regardless of the amount of wealth. You have people on the AD side of this story would say hey, you're Kanye, West. You're an eagle monster. You weren't terribly. Up and now you're having this mental breakdown. You have resources that I wish I. Had you had money I? Wish I had go. Get help. Go fix law, but it it. It is harder than that I can tell you this having actually known a good amount of bipolar behavior. That if you're not on your meds. It becomes an insanity. It becomes if you do not take medication. FOR BIPOLAR, disorder! It can become something that ravages you and swallows you and nothing else ends up mattering other than your pain and You can't be off your meds like it's. You're on the cusp of schizophrenia. They're like when you start getting diagnosed with you know some of these things the things that they go through when they go to manic, depressive, bipolar and schizophrenia the testing. To find out what that is, if you are not medicated with lithium, or what something else something stronger, what you end up happening is a person who is totally out of control. Who because the nature of bipolar is you suffer? These lowe's that you cannot get out from under, but you also have these incredible manic highs where you are simply feeling. Feeling like you're bulletproof, and you're the only one in the world who has since now imagine giving that to egomaniac imagine giving that to a guy who's already got a substantive ego, and now make him somebody who thinks he's got it all figured out, and he knows something that he's not the one who's crazy. It's the rest of the world. That's crazy. For businesses around the world today isn't a restart. It's a rethink that's why they're partnering with IBM to Change. How, they burned from supply chains to customer service. Let's put smart to work visit IBKR DOT com slash smart to learn more. Where do you set the over under Mike STUGOTZ does not get to set these things you said it at what number? Give you an opportunity for push three. All right so bike. Four humanity I once had Bill Walton on stupidity. I didn't ask him a single question. He went on for forty two minutes. He's the best bike for humanity to takes place this Saturday July twenty fifth. If you want more information, you go to bike four humanity dot. COM This is very exciting. We're always very excited when Bill Walton makes an appearance on the show so bill we begin in the usual place. How is life served it grandiose and Psychedelic? We are working on that. We are planning on the miracle. We are seeking shelter from the storm. We are listening to electric on the. As. We approached the days between in the summertime here we are working feverishly. Be doing everything we can to make it happen. We are trying to figure out a way to make the different world better to take the challenges that we have and turn those into a privileged opportunities to find a new path forward, and then to do never done before so. Other than that everything is fantastic, and we're having a really solid run toward fight for humanity to brought back by popular demand these are. Times. I I was listening and studying W-. Beethoven the other day, and there was a very poignant scene and Hershey builders, program and. Beethoven was GONNA kill himself at one point. In his twenties as I was going to kill myself, I'M GONNA say twelve years ago eleven twelve years ago and I did. And and Beethoven did. And when he was asked at the end of his life, he didn't kill himself because he had a lot of trouble. A lot of challenges, a terrible family, life and of brutalizing father, and all that Kinda stuff anyway, he said that. He realized that it was time to leave until you've given everything that you have and so I am here today on the Dan and Stugatz show to get everything that I have and we're using the platform of bike for vanity. We need a little more. Yes, thank you. I didn't interrupt you. Please continue. At this time, We have changed the beneficiaries. Because it's the free advanced free to sign up for you to participate you go bike for humanity dot com spell it all out, but this time we are focused on an organization national organization run by brother, Terry you saw. She's constantly shadowboxing the apocalypse, but he runs free bikes for kids and what he does is he goes out, and he collects all the bikes that that nobody's using anymore, and he rehabs them and gives them away to older children who don't have a bike. And they were also supporting no kid hungry. It is staggering. As we are the richest country in the history of the world, and there is, there is enough food, but there are countless millions of children who do not know where their next meal is coming from, and so we are. That is unacceptable to us, so we're supporting no kid hungry. Foundation. Hoover thirty seven years is not doing all kinds of fantastic works. New Guys can talk about the Rex Foundation, and then the boys and Girls Club. We're literally everybody that I know that it ever made it into the NBA started in the boys and Girls Club, and it's just a fantastic organization that provides the platform shelter from the storm, and all the different things that allow people to build their lives to create their dreams. It'd be part of something special because we're about help. Whole community service bike for humanity. What does it mean to shadow box the apocalypse? You're up against it as we are right now. We have five simultaneous china-led crises right now, going on and. And when it can seem overwhelming, you have to find a way to move through it to move. Beyond it and to get to a better space, and so as we do, shadow bossy popular up against it. We are looking at covid nineteen the. Collapsed the social justice. Awakening which is long overdue and I'm in full support of that, and then the climate change and the species extinction threats that we're facing on a daily basis, which is continuing to get worse, and so we are working on all these fronts on a constant basis Dan, I've never been busier and I just I try my best to not mistaken activity for achievements and trying to be productive as can be. You don't try to do as much as I can to help. Ease the pain and lift the bird, the burden of the people who can't do anything out there because my health remains very good, very solid and strong are six children and fourteen grandchildren are doing awesome out there and ESPN is what its job, and with the with the bubble, but the baseball starting up and all the different live sports that are trying to make that that world come back because that is my world I did for the I live for the live events, and just think of all the things that have been shut down live events. Events are the first to go in the last two comeback, but we're working feverishly and tirelessly on all of that stuff, and it's critically important that you have to embrace the uncertainty. That's the nature of the entrepreneurial life that we've all chosen here, but also understand that while this is going to take everything that we have had probably more, you cannot finish anything until we start and so under way baseball is underway. Basketball is underway now. We just have cheap making the constant adjustments that you make during the course of the battles, the battles to make things better, and that's the. That's the fight that I WANNA be. I WANNA. Be On the right side of his. Bill was He was taking the lyrics from a song called my brother. He saw great, grateful dead, Song and Bill. We've that into the conversation. shadowboxing the apocalypse I'm wondering bill. There are a lot of important things to address, and you are certainly addressing them an pitching in and doing your part, but live music live musical events is such a big part of your life especially. Especially in the summer same for me and I've seen yet dead concerts. How're you? How are you moving here? How are you? How are you living here without live music because I know view people bill. We're live music concerts. Gatherings mean more to them than they mean to you. So how are you? How are you proceeding here? Without having live music live concerts in your life. All of that stuff is part of who I am and I go to the concert. There was supposed to be a dead show ambition tonight. I would have been there. Then on to Chicago at Wrigley Field for the big weekend. is they always do before going to Cleveland Hershey Pennsylvania and then to New Jersey Saratoga Washington DC up to Boston and just all these different places that we'd be going right now, but. The reason I go I. Go to learn I go to be inspired. Go to be. He'll going to gain confidence. I go to be with my friends and family and I and I go to learn, and so that's not happening right now, so I have learned over the course of my life and I've learned this. The hard way is that. I have to have music going in my life all the time. Well, I, do listen and and loved the sounds of nature. The book that I'm just finishing up right now. The over story by Richard. Power is incredibly important and. And Inspirational Book about the fight, the fight to preserve the Detroit, and another incredible book the world without us by Alan Weisman, but that's I have to try to create that culture. The the world that I want to be is and. All the NBA guys right now. They're down in that bubble and so they're challenged with. How to create the space that allows them to be productive that allows them to be creative, and so one of the things that I do is I just always have the music going, and even when I'm practicing the drums, even when I'm practicing the piano, you all have something else on. There's just playing. 'cause you never know is your lives where the light is going to come from. One End And you learn you learn that once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest places. If you look at it right, yes, and so. And so as we think about the ability to to provide a free bike per child. To to? Get a meal for. A kid who's hungry to to to to support the indigenous people who are fighting with everything they have ju just for their survival or the boys and Girls Club were able just to try to create a place where people can go I'm the luckiest guy in the world you know. a couple of songs that have been popping up today. Besides waiting for a miracle, brother he saw is. Waiting for a miracle and Shelter from the storm. Then those two songs capsule late a lot of the things that we're working on. The amazing thing about my shuffle. My shuffled knows where I need to go. Abides for humanity to I got to cut you off because of time. Unfortunately, just bill. I need a short answer. That's because we are out of time. What is the best sound in nature, the best sound according to Bill Wall? We only have a couple of second one sound in nature. Island. Thank you bill, we appreciate.

Postgame Show: Will An NBA Boycott Work?

The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz

Postgame Show: Will An NBA Boycott Work?

"All right. It's the Post Game Show where picking up right after the show ended and I want clarification from Dan because I, I hear him and I am certainly willing to listen that the NBA pausing their play would help because at of all the options. This is one that hasn't been explored yet, and when you look at the options of what came, we do that certainly the most dramatic option but. You say money from the owners potentially the only way the owners miss out on money at this point because it's not like they have gate revenue is simply removing games without making them up. So you're saying playoff series are shorter. Now is that the scenario you're painting I am saying that when Kyle lowry is texting that all options are on the table that they are going to their owners looking on how and their commissioner who listens to them looking for ways to maximize the fact I. Don't think that this is disputable or subjective that stopping playing games brings more attention to this activism that had. Quieted a bit then playing the games wrapped in uniforms and social messages that if you make a civil rights stand in the middle of all of this, the impact of what it is you're doing is larger. It's why they were conflicted route going in the first place. Mike. Because they thought they were being used as a propaganda tool to entertain and distract the masses from this caused that they care. About. I think Mike has had it is the people who stand to lose money in this equation perhaps is not so much the. Owners but more. So the NBA and the and the TV network. All right. Well, Dan mentioned that you know the NFL treated employees differently. Yeah. The does that too because they treat them like partners it's a true partnership with the players and the commissioner and the owners way that we don't see in the other sport, which means they're also gonNA be partners in the losses if they actually remove games and I'm trying to trying to figure out here if that actually helps because I know it does more than potentially not doing anything. It's not exactly not doing anything because they are using the platform within these games to constantly remind you. Hey, we we know it's quieter out there. We're uncomfortable with that. Don't forget keep your eye on the ball look at the back of my Jersey I will take this post game opportunity with this microphone to not talk to you about the game but to talk to you about what's going on with social injustice. So I'm not really sure. That helps even though it's really the only option that's left on the table. Let me put it to you this way so that you understand what it is. We're in the middle of the nature of this partnership and how Adam Silver leads and the fact that as of two days ago Stugotz saw that same video everyone else saw and I never jumped I never made the leap to boycotting games. This is what's happening in the bubble right now where reporters talking to players and players are questioning the worth of. What they've chosen to do because of what's happening outside the bubble and while Mike brings up a good point, do you further this cause? The best this is what I would say to you. The NBA just figured out how to successfully get it sport to run during a pandemic. That's really complicated have anything in the way of precedent it was important enough to them to get those players back in that bubble. It is important enough now to listen to those players to see if the most progressive minds in sports. Can actually execute something that gets their employees her during this time. So they don't feel like sell outs in that bubble selling something on behalf of the NBA protecting their money as as black as there's are shot seven times in the back while unarmed and trying to get into a car in front of love of the things that just sort of crossed my mind in in that bubble, you have players that have literally gone out marched Jalen Brown Malcolm Brogdon even though his team just got eliminated in his canter. And many many many more actually went out there. So I can see some of those players Hey, what am I doing here? I should be out there. I could be doing better work out there than in here. So if that is brought to my attention like it just was I think that, yeah, there's there's credence to and I was just trying to figure out exactly what that accomplishes because I think that's what they're discussing right now Mike is the best of the options inside of that bubble I don't even notice. So my thing so I think you can make a very solid argument. Let's have these games and make it all about fed in there. I don't know the answer your question I find it fascinating that over the last forty, forty, eight hours, they're exploring all of the options when they say we're exploring all the options on the table they are intent on leading the show today had a whole lot of. A serious social commentary because it is interesting that the NBA would be considering a decision that I had not even considered when it is that this started that the pain of that would be so much that they would say, Hey, let's consider the idea of boycotting game. If I don't know if it's the NBA that's doing that right now just the raptors who have lent voice to that Marcus spar length voice. That to an and Chris Mannix is doing the reporting in the bubble where a lot of guys are questioning what the hell they're doing. They're just cashing checks during this but we've had enough of the serious social commentary today and somehow again, I got knocked aside on being able to tell this Miami pool boy story because there's not enough attention that can be brought to what is happening right? Now with the Falwell's where the head of university. Okay and this is a place that wouldn't allow people to hug for more than three seconds like this is a religious school wrapped inside those religious things that are the morality's that bother some people who aren't religion hired. You freeze about religion they're hugging they're anti hugging more than three seconds. four seconds is the devil's work three seconds evidently is okay and I it's like being the key in in basketball. You know sometimes you're allowed three and a half seconds because the referee doesn't notice but usually a hug of three seventy, four second hug should be outlawed. That's Matt uncomfortable. Put It on the poll. Please Guillermo is a four second hug mad uncomfortable. But for those of you who have not heard this story and I wanNA, know from our shipping container, I did not include the shipping container enough today and I have my remorse about that. When I give you some of the details on this story, the pool boy is named Giancarlo Granda, which is just great. It's a distinctly Miami Story, Twenty Year Old Pool Boy Fountain Blue. The Falwell's Or. Not Merely. People whose name is associated with religion and therefore morality, but also they helped reportedly. The pool boy with four point seven million dollars to build a hostile that was gay friendly parties. The floor gets hose down afterward oddly enough the comedian Sam be a year ago. told you hey, what's going on with the pool boy and the Falwell's? There's some links here that are uncomfortable between Miami and a aren't you instead of building a hostile for gauge usually hostile to gays like isn't that something that you guys do where the three second hug is not allowed. Next thing you know Falwell at the height of this empire. Eat Dirty. Like dirty dirty like likes to watch his sex life someone judgy judgy his wife have sex with others. While no no, it's not just that he's dirty sexually you can have your repressions in your judgment there. It's that you espouse that people who do that are wrong while you yourself partake in most liberal of fashions like that. You yourself build an empire that is money upon judging those people I mean but are they hugging longer than four seconds? You guys have anything for me on this subject is anyone. WanNa talk about the pool boy scandal because I can't actually this is light. This is lightning up the show today is that ordinary? You guys don't want to have fun with you guys are instead of all walls in a pool boy instead of paying attention to the religion of this that you're scared of, why don't you pay attention to the guy likes to have his wife as sex portion of this. Now anybody anybody know anybody anybody toning Dan. I'll step into the breach here and help you out on one of the things that I found interesting to and this is one of the things that has come out since the initial story is that his wife essentially fell on the sword and said, yeah, it's kind of my fault and follows again it's kind of her fall we're not doing anything it was all her I'm GonNa. Take my buy out and leave and I thought that was kind of weird. Did you do that on purpose? which part? Fell on the sword. Did you see Chris that the wrestler the PAT McAfee was wrestling against had baby on his shorts. Did you notice that I did see that? Cody, of course, he did what's GonNa Happen with McAfee Mike? WHAT IS GONNA end up happening? What's he going to parlay that into I think headlining Wrestlemainia. I mean, he's good. He's really good. He was going to be in a he'll. He could sell in the ring I. Think He. Goes as far as he wants it to go I just although he a, he just announced a partnership with serious Sirius. Xm. So I don't think he's got to stop having his hand and multiple pots. Are you talking about the overall I mean just the wrestling aspect of it I'm most areas Honan I know I'm most curious as. Adam Kobe. I think that it would be a great story if PAT McAfee had. Media option in the world and chose wrestling. Coach to be a professional wrestling. I. Don't think Pat McAfee is about closing doors right now I think he's only escaped open just opening doors right now he's not going to say, Oh, I'm gonNA walk through this one enclosed one behind me he's not that's not as deal, but as many doors as possible walk. We live in a barn. ingrown just do that by the way before he unretired like he chose over everything else Mac of better gronk was really unliked backstage and I know people who reported on that but better wrestling Pat Pat McAfee was also disliked backstage. He had a lot of people in the industry call heat but I think you want some people over with his recent performance. Chris Billy. What's going on with the MARLINS doubleheader? Win I. Know You guys talked about it during the local hour but you guys I wanted to know billy I thought the Marlins really blew an opportunity here because I told you I asked you to see if we could get a Marlin on every single day during the pandemic or as close as. They could stay two first place every single day during the ten to noon. So we would put a Marlin from Miami, a South Florida story that the nation wouldn't care about at all from ten to noon. But the MARLINS said, we can't really help you and I thought that was remarkably short-sighted of them. Maybe it's the way you just sold it which. Is No one cares about them at all? It makes them Klein to not really want to help you out with some of that stuff but we wanted to be the show that would help you know help the Marlins and how people start caring about the marlins. What a great story would be the Marlins made it to the postseason if we could bring. That story nationally but lower realize that that story happening with or without you rate. So if they could do it without being made fun of I think that's the way that they choose to do it. Right. But rather than wait around for to happen what we were proposing was, hey, we're going to introduce you to them. Now get you ready for the. You, know how patach Affi is all about opening doors Dan's more of a close the door tight kind of guy. I. That what who changed the lock? Why does at this door opening? I wouldn't have been making fun of the Marlins though I would have had them on every day bringing attention to their franchise, introducing their players to the country is that something that teams would want? No at least your intentions are clear when you say flat out nobody nationally will care about this but that's why we're doing it. That's exactly right. That's that's set in the privacy of the whispered secret is the post game show. Something that people would actively notice. We just be putting ten to noon a Marlin on every single day for three weeks. Seeing people would notice I. Don't think it would go unnoticed that every day when Bill Belichick is on the morning show and Charles Barkley Address Oh, let's talk to. Birdie how high? In one inning last night how how high up the chain? Do you guys think that way? Did it go to the that arrive Jeeter's desk like because I think if Dan's name arrives at Jeeter's desk the ideas done that's it. It's over the answer is no. Place. So that doesn't arrive. I don't think Dan seems ever arise. There's no one place there. Oh No, that's not true. Gene and I had a secret meeting. Told you. I, haven't told you let the captain. Seating at least it's refreshing to find out that your bad even keeping your own secrets to. Things are starting to make more sense as to why they, but it was a very positive secret meeting. Yeah. Marlin since I believe they said No. So we got here marlins but who does that affect? Honestly, I WANNA discuss this in a way because I have often said over the last few years I've often said that we find ourselves in a position in sports media where lesson less these people need us for anything because they could do it themselves but I don't think that's actually true. The marlins I think the Marlins are one of the few places that actually needs in professional sports all the. Coverage, they can get because their coverage is so bad and they're the one place that they could actually use this show for their own means because I wasn't GonNa Make Fun of the Marlins I was just going to have a Marlin on every day for three weeks until we got to the janitors on their roster because they've been afflicted with the Corona Byron Right? Did you invite cheats on the show I mean what happened is never going to happen. I can tell you right now what am I? Wrong I'm just curious. Do you guys think I'm wrong in saying, Hey, we'll put on Marlin every day and it's not an opportunity. You guys would ever have under any other circumstances to be on a national radio show every single day to introduce your team and this charming story to the country. I would think that that would be one of the few kinds of publicity that they would actually want yet. What to get people to the stadium? Why do they need promotion right now they also are not all rookies like there's former all stars on his team. So when you say, Hey, I want to introduce you to. America. Were like well, I've been on an all sorts team multiple times like America's William just because you don't know wham doesn't mean America. Doesn't really you think that the our audience can name multiple marlins. That's a thing that you actually think let's. Convince already. Making the case I mean stronger for why they should come on. No you think the country at large can name Marlins. It's the point for putting them on the show because I believe their second baseman has a cool as hell story distinctly Miami Story. You think that the Marlins don't mean that story told like it's the whole reason that people ever gotten. Bed. Why do you think that newspapers were granted free access to all of these events because they wanted their teams introduced to the fans so that it could be spread across generations. The stories are what connect people emotionally. I think the Marlins are shortsighted and not doing that. Even if we were simply making fun of them I think they're shortsighted and doing that. Okay I'm with you got to parlay a secret meeting into him on the show what is the benefit of a secret meeting and I'm I'm picturing you guys in a layer you have to go through like you walk into a house like a book that you pull out and then that bookshelf moves aside and it opens up to a secret down secret on and that's where the meeting was. We're we're was a secret location but the secret meeting it was at his office At the stadium. Same Office. Is it true that? It's true that you don't walk past the world. Series Trophy from two thousand and three anymore on I didn't notice one way or the other way Samson says that jeeter removed that trophy from his view because remember Geeta was on that Oh three Yankees seem though as if he did. So he didn't WanNa Reminder of the Marlins success the ninety seven one is thought up there those. Around With Yankee Trophies. Mike. How Are you doing complaining yesterday about the Marlins Black Jerseys a not being able to read the name. was. Yeah I mean same same complaint. To throw stones at at uniform selections when he had like the most garish uniforms and I ask you guys this, I really do think I think that that Samson our has a lot of good in it and a lot of possibility in it. Have you guys considered billy and Chris joining that our to call bullshit on Sampson in spots because I think that billion Chris have a hostility for Sampson, that Mike Ryan does not have that Samson has softened. Mike some just like he softened my journalistic belly some and I actually think why at the salesman Billion Chris would be better at calling bullshit on Samson than either me or my car. Have you guys considered doing that? Because I think it'd be funding bill you don't like Sampson do you. As a person I think he's always been very nice to me I. Mean I don't have a personal issue with him and just you know. I it's hard to go round as the villain for all of these years and go out of your way to kind of like antagonize the fans in the media and then years later be like, oh but nothing personal it was business i. don't understand why everyone's mad music because you were acting kind of like a jerk for a really long time and now people don't like you like you can't have it both ways it'd be nice to hear during the Sampson our though I think Dan's. To because Samson's kind of made of wires he doesn't mind you guys could actually roughhouse with him a little bit I mean. The door's always open number one by we've done that show. We've done these things about you and I yeah. What we've done it with the shipping container where they call them on es I call him on B. I. Don't think he listened to my life I think Billy's distaste you call him on wait a minute. Because you add house the question. That's not fair. That is simply unfair what it is that your sinus tell you straight up right now listen to. Keep the real. Billy your telling me that you would not enjoy calling bull shit on. Samson in a more forceful manner than Mike. Does it because I've seen you roll your eyes when Mike is talking to Samson. I mean I haven't been invited rolls. His is when I talk period. There's nothing to do with like a Samson historians thing and I don't want to be one on the parade. Bullshit a Mike Not Absent. Rulings is Samson. Well, this is the thing though I want the distaste of billy somewhere near Sampson. Funny Tomorrow Tomorrow, Building Habit Tomorrow Billy and Chris had twenty five minutes talking to. Could tell stories about whatever now, the two countries hate you, David you ruined baseball in two countries like. My favorite thing about Samson is because if when he when you ask him about the Marlins to live here on the fan I'm ruined for them but yet everything he says is just undercutting everything that the part that I want them to call bullshit on because I know that anything Sampson, says about the marlins those two guys think is tinged in a biased bitterness I know you're not listening I know you're listening because this is just a totally unfair criticism had area Awani be ruthlessly unfair to David Samson and make everybody uncomfortable I. Call Him out constant I brought. Pacific tastes himself the victim in these situations and people like him more. So like what's the point of calling area Wani was bullying amuses telling him things that he didn't like it's the same thing billy corbin did bully him if I'm going to be honest Billy Corbin with Subaru to him. When he was on it, he wouldn't even say a word and I was like man I'm watching this happen five feet away from me and I feel bad for David Samson and I I don't know why do nobody was as route David Samson Jason Leisure. Adding up. All my God knows always sitting next to him. I'm like, can you lay off a little bit like this is so weird we're in an empty convention center just yelling David Santa Reminder summaries I gotta get back to Jason who has been texting me hey, can I come back on the local hour and I honestly would say, Hey, yeah, you can come on the local hour but Mara we're relaunching and I wanted to have the normal show. I mean we've had plenty of uncomfortable moments with Samson where people hold him down. Okay. MIC Fair enough. Okay. But the ones that are being brought up now or not how mean Mike is to Samson it's Corbett it's aerial Hawan WanNa Leisure. It's Jason Leisure listened in most of these that Mike doesn't Samson he he'd call now. This is Mike was saying no, he doesn't want to do that. He wants it to be a fun story time with David That's fine. At, Note. Okay. First off. Thank you for listening. But because I'm pretty sure Dan has not listened. Okay. Mic Stop saying that listen I haven't listened to a second of you and Samsa move off of that position and get to the place where billy's this taste is either willing. To Mike. Into that five minutes ago. Because you're asking Samson questions that I've had two months ago you lash out at me Billy Imitates Billy and Chris I'd like that dynamic next. Just telling us what she wants. So guys, you have David. Samson. Tomorrow done and dusted tell you what I am boycotting David Samson tomorrow you guys have fun with it. We did the local hour today I'm sorry more work for you. Sure Hey. Just make sure someone writes my say for me. Billy Chris and meal do Sampson the three of us are doing Samson tomorrow tomorrow morning yeah. Good hold him accountable Mike. You write the a cotton candy interviews I know listen to. All. Worked so hard on the sheet.

Hour 1: Even More International Shame

The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz

Hour 1: Even More International Shame

"The Dan Le Batard Woodstock Gotcha podcast is brought to you by the capital one's ever card or four percent cashback on dining and entertainment do percent grocery stores of one percent on all of the purchases now when you go out you can't Jim what's in your wallet terms apply. This is the Dan lebatardshow with his two cats podcast. This television radio show has a very strange relationship with baseball in that the demographics of America show. Oh that baseball's fans are almost literally dying. The median age is close to sixty on baseball fans and STU STUGATZ and I have fallen out of love with baseball. Stu Gods pays attention every once in a while when the mets are doing well but he doesn't even know everybody who plays for the mets won three straight the metropolitans to out in the wild card. Mike Ryan has basically given up on baseball after falling in love with it through championships and being very excited about ninety s baseball. He has a just not interested in the sport anymore but Billy Chris and Roy and this is a bit confusing to me because Chris. You're awfully young. I guess that was the time that the Marlins got their hooks and you but basically in your adult lifetime. The local team hasn't been any good the entire time that you guys have been adults. the local team has stunk uh other than the two world series champion adult school high school three. I was a junior in high school. You're younger than me. You weren't an adult. Did you not understand I mean. It hasn't been that long. I mean what fifteen years ago like I mean. It's not like any other team. Here has been good outside of the heat but they had a cheat code so it's not like like were like shunning these great dolphins teams to follow the lowly marlins and they had a chico with Lebron James but they won in two thousand six and I was an adult by them but the bigger point of just baseball fallen general. This is a problem baseball hasn't changed. You guys have changed. I mean maybe to its detriment baseball. Has What do you mean. Baseball hasn't changed baseball has changed in that you saw more home runs hitting the season last night than have ever been hit in a season in baseball balls are June the the numbers used to matter in that sport sport and they just set a record last night and I feel like that's being met with yawning indifference Chris Thunder forward if you want I am warning you right now. Tread lightly be careful. It seems like you want to argue with Dan. Right now boy. What's he answered the you want. What are we doing about being set last night and known tone caring is that it seems like every season the records being set so it's kind of like you know that's happening in football to all these passing records. It's your the passing game L. But baseball has been the only only sport that cares about the numbers whoever it is that holds the passing record we celebrated in football but baseball is the sport that does this Joe Dimaggio's number fifty six game hitting extreme still matters but the homerun stuff man Pete Alonzo's out here is a rookie hitting fifty homers that used to mean something doesn't today about we set the record for hit and runs because yes. They're they're setting the record for home. Runs people are failing at a spectacular rate because everyone's going for home runs. Call me old fashioned but I like to see people succeed at the ditch doesn't necessarily have to be homerun every time so what's the question. Why Do you hate baseball. The question is first of all. I got sidetracked because Chris saying baseball hasn't changed when it has changed. There's a lot of time more. Your home runs why that's a bad thing but it's a big change. There's less small author shifts and now it seems like it's you know not as it's fun. There's this you know it's all or nothing I think is the point of trying to make and so I didn't think that there was disagreement on that the thing that I wanted to talk to you guys about it's just the idea of how it has kept in two thousand nineteen with the amount of stimulation that the young person has the amount out of add that is being forced by the addiction to our devices that sport is losing that demographic for a reason. It moves too slowly holy. It's not the heroin that football is where you're just watching the you don't have to follow one hundred and sixty two games. We just it's like football is like binge watching good television. It does move slowly. I'm with you Dan. I think part of the problem also is the fact that the Games don't have any stakes attach there too. Many Games would not enough enough stakes attached to them because when we get to the postseason glue to glue. I'm not interested in exploring the problems of baseball. I'm trying to understand why the young people in our groups still love the sport it despite the problems in baseball so stu gods has a point in terms of the game moving too slow is that there's a lot of games because football if you watch every play eight is not a fast eleven minutes of total actual actually nine minutes a game not between nine and eleven minutes a game action a very slow moving game that surprises fries you with like. Oh big hit here who big if you log a football game which I had to do like when I was an intern you realize how slow football moves and how oh one yard one yard run play here. Oh Two yard rumbling football moves very slow just like baseball but because there's only sixteen games there's bigger stakes on every game and any big play has so much more of an impact than big plays in baseball to it does but the television product and even the in stadium experience at a football game one play happens. I I relive it immediately on television. I get to see exactly why that play work. Why that play didn't in baseball one play happens and it's a foul tip. They're not going to replay that to show me what exciting happened. So can you guys explain to me how it is that the sport has kept your young person attention. How is it managed to do that. I mean I can only speak for myself and I just grew up. It was my first love. I loved baseball and I think that you know we grew up. We were really into I mean I guess Mike was into it when he was young too so I don't know what the disconnect is born the marlins for me me. A team broke me a team and their lack of commitment to the promises. I felt they made that's what got me out of it. I was like I'm GONNA stop watching this team and then I saw following the sport altogether together because I was following my team every day so I knew what was happening in that league and baseball since they play every day if I take a week off from the thing I'm loss. I don't know what's happening. It's not you're not that lost though just check the standings see what you missed like it's not that I don't want to miss anything like that's the problem is you didn't miss much. If you miss a week it missed a week in the NFL. You feel like you missed everything everything. I think sports in general though has an issue with stimuli because I this week was an nfl Sunday and I was watching the red zone so I was watching essentially what eight games games at once because if I'm watching one game I get bored because of how slow things actually I'd one that's again that's part of my confusion as to why it is and how it is that baseball is kept up to your attention given the combination of those two things one. It's ponderous and to this particular market has done more to betray its customer than any market market in the country and so that's why they've lost. Mike and that's why no one goes to the stadium anymore and that's why they're afflicted with the worst thing and organization could be afflicted with which is indifference indifference instead of anger because they had anger for years and years and years and it's turned into indifferent but then a lot of fans would take it because as these guys were growing up they got to experience variance to world series for their favorite team as bad as it's been they had those two moments those two seasons not as adults but growing and only two times. That team has made the playoffs why I think that it's it's a combination interesting so like it's Kinda like for me. What Chris says like I grew up watching this team. I grew up as a child. I could tell you the number of every player the name of what they you know whatever I could tell you who is in the bullpen by looking through binoculars and just seeing the number so I have that connection to when I was a childhood and they did give us highs stu gods lived his whole life and not gotten a jet super bowl or at least not one that he can remember and he still hugh hasn't gotten any nothing. He's a career loser well. No I had the eighty six mets but it just takes you back to your childhood and your upbringing offering like he grew up a jets fan so the same argument that you're making for baseball and for the MARLINS for us because they've been bad for so long is an argument you can make was. Why are you a jets fan. It's just is part of how you were raised and what you have in your fiber now. I'm not as passionate as I used to be about baseball and part of going to a baseball game. I know that I can kind of go with a group of the people and it's like a social event like I hang out. We can talk. I don't have to be paying attention to every single thing. That's the thing and now now that the nets are up. You really don't have to to pay attention to a lot of plays because there's not even a risk that something's going to happen to you in a lot of cases so you can kind of go and just make it like Oh. You know I'm GONNA be here. I'M GONNA go. I'll chat with friends. We'll joke around around exactly yeah. It's more of a social thing. Now you know one thing that baseball the this is going to be something that's taken seriously but one thing that I noticed that the all star game that really makes baseball more more enjoyable and they do basketball games all the time. If you have music playing the entire time like you're more engaged in it moves a lot faster than an actual baseball. Oh game would like basketball. Games have a lot of snow turnover stuff like this where nothing's happening also and music playing the whole time you just like yeah. You know what this is a fun environment to being but baseball would never never do that. Baseball would never have three hours of music. Just they've got an ordinance. I've got an organized. That's part of the Problem Kirsten. I have excuse to stay with the game in in children. You can actually pass game along to our daughters now who would be bored to tears what you're getting. I tried to do that. I left in the bottom of the first inning at Lebatardshow hard. Show on twitter should baseball be playing music all game.

Shami if you're not familiar you're with Rick Sutcliffe Rick Sutcliffe playing career. Rick Sutcliffe was a big pitcher who threw very hard at different time in baseball very friendly friendly man with giant hands and you know a bit of a lumberjack and also love ably ofi and so sometimes he he doesn't listen when Boob is absolutely be the manager of a Major League Baseball team. You can absolutely do it. He is sophisticated and his knowledge baseball. I I don't know anyone in the media. Kerchief included Kurkin included. I don't know anyone in the media who knows baseball the way that Bugno's baseball so he's trying trying to explain something here to that lovable OFI sutcliffe and listen to how that goes on the subject of sample size. I know it's hard for people to digested but the brewers aren't done eighteen games without Christian Yelich over eighteen games then gamble could get hot for night of a rating games. Christian Yelich might might not be real good for ten of them in eighteen game stretch. That loss is not crushing for them. They might stock as two homers tonight. It's it's one of those things that over a short span they can survive Christian Yelich. It has nothing to do with how amazingly great the is probably one of the three best take the sport. You're okay with their rotation. It has nothing to do with that. What my point is that. The ability over eighteen games that loss is not ending ending their season that so many weird things can happen in eighteen game stretches over any eighteen game stretch even during his mbps's in he can having a team game stretch so they're not done because Christian Yelich hurt. I think they're done. I mean Christian. Yelich is just that guy. He takes so much out of you although even when he doesn't do well it goes on at some point suckling aspe- wise yelling everyone agrees with sutcliffe on that that's the other thing like boo boo is taking a position that is mathematically sound but everyone is. GonNa listen to that and we'd like what are you talking arguing about man the brewers Game Win Without Yelich. He's gotTa be honest boo had me. I watched it last night because it was the cubs cubs. The lives of the metropolitan did that make it to the playoffs boo had me believing the brewers were better without yellow. Ch- I think they're GONNA win the world series but going back to last segment like that's part sort of. I think why people don't watch baseball because they lost the most valuable player of last season and possibly the most valuable player this season and he's done for the year and the broadcasters telling you that doesn't really matter that much it may not make a difference they may still make it to the playoffs and they may still win because baseball's random sometimes though Donlevatar hard. Nobody in my life has as many unlikable traits. I still like as to Gut stugatz would you we've taken the bait gun no pay cuts please you talking to live at our show with as two guys on ESPN ESPN radio ESPN radio is presented by Progressive Insurance guests on the Dan Lebatardshow appear via the Shell Pennzoil performance line. Prep your engine for winter with pennzoil synthetic motor oil the first motor oil made from natural gas not crude oil. The proof is in the pennzoil. Here's your sportscenter update. Antonio Brown took part in his first patriots practice yesterday. Horse racing justify failed a drug test eight months before the two thousand Eighteen Kentucky Derby bought the California Horse Racing Board decided to dismiss the case justify won the triple crown under normal circumstances justify would have been disqualified and removed from the Kentucky Derby the entry and finally already Lang announced that he's seven months sober and out of Rehab. Here's these selectquote difference. Most companies give you one option one policy one rape but selectquote jobs it could get out from highly rated life insurance companies very free personalized quote call eight hundred seventy eight zero ten ten or go to selectquote dot com we're on latest headlines and information tune into sports center on ESPN radio all throughout the day gear more. Put It on the poll. Have you seen ardy. Lang's knows because it is profoundly Hundley Sad. It's good to see that he's been sober for seven months. looks healthier looks thinner but his nose from all the drug use has simply collapsed lapsed into the middle of his face and it's a bit heartbreaking. He's another one of those guys we were talking earlier this week about how the Hell Keith Richards is still alive and as the standard bearer for all of you misbehaving just smoking drinking do whatever drugs you want because you can point to look Keith. Richards is still alive well. It's a crapshoot artie. Artie Lang is still alive and I'm. I'm thinking that maybe he surprised by that. I wanted to ask you guys as we take two segments arguments to get into international shame the US basketball team lost Serbia today the best they could finish in this tournament in is seventh than what I wanted to ask you is is this now over for the United States and the reason I asked that question is because I think it ended the moment. Paul George broke broke his leg when Paul George broke his leg practicing for the US basketball team. I think that what you're going to see now going forward and I may be wrong. Maybe again Dan. Some guys'll be ashamed enough some stars that they'll say okay. We'll play for the Olympics because this embarrassment is not like an Olympic embarrassment but I believe that what's going to end up happening. Actually is not even kemp is GonNa WanNa play because for what right what's the point. You're going to do something like this and you're going to finish seventh because Serbia is is going to be better than you are and have more chemistry. It used to be that the amount of talent that the Americans were putting on the floor with so much better than anyone else's talent that it didn't matter matter how much those international teams were playing together. It didn't matter that they had chemistry. We just had an overwhelming amount of talent but when you start making it the guys who aren't all-stars patriotic team when you start making it that you're all of a sudden vastly more susceptible to the Serbians just playing well together together. I'm not sure it's over because look. We're talking about a feeble World Cup. There's not a lot of prestige attached to this competition here. The Olympics still has a draw. There's still a draw for a professional athlete that's in the NBA to be an Olympic gold medalists to partake and all the pageantry of the opening ceremony ceremonies to stay in the Olympic Village. All that still has a draw to some of the elite players the Fiba World Cup though it's not really glamorous never stayed in the Olympic Village they stay on a yacht outside of the the Olympic Village draft but if tatum letting these guys they would stay in the Olympic Village right. They're not staying outside of it right. These guys s guys forget a shack back but the Olympics is Dan. Listen first off. It's over when we say it's over okay when we decided it's over then and only then is. Is it over okay but to Mike's Point. I think it's a good one. Is there still an attraction to play in the Olympics to win a gold medal. But what if you've already won a gold medal do you still. You'll have that attractive. Circles Williamson be attracted to the Olympic less so for someone that already has it but there are a lot of a world class athletes. I just want to be able to say I'm an Olympic gold medalist especially especially guys that don't have a shot at winning an NBA title because they're Kemba Walker. Why are you smiling billy. You're just everyday follow up with STU gods again. I love the over when we say it's over. It's just perfect and he's not wrong. What is called Fiba Fever. What is this as a little child play Turkey. We lost to France. We lost Serbia. You say we and what I'm telling you is. We are not putting our best players out there. We did all those games would be over before they started. We decide hi when this thing is overdone. When are the stars. Who's GONNA come rescue us? Wasn't there talk that the professional players May. He just stopped doing this altogether but this is what happened. I if I'm not mistaken. Do I have my chronology right. The reason Charles Barkley was sticking an elbow with the Dream Team in the neck of an Angolan causing international controversy while we won I seventy is because we lost with our collegians right before then. We tried that they embarrassed us and we're like. Oh never mind. We're going to take back the sport and then we assembled that ridiculous thing that was Michael Jordan and Larry Bird and Magic Johnson and every great player you're in the league. It was it was better than any of your all-star teams that team and since then we've gone through a couple of times we're we're upset because we don't have the best players out there and were literally upset in a tournament and then we get serious about it so to this point. It's over when we say it's over. I get what's happening here. Dan's trying to ramp up the album rage and ramp up the embarrassment to Kinda. He wants to be the one that he's nudging the professionals. Hey Lebron see what happened here. Get back in there for the Olympics. That's that's what you're doing here right hatred being yes a Patriot no. I'm just embarrassed that we lost a Serbian France and I'm wondering if that's going to just this continue because none of the players WanNa play for this team. We didn't lose to them. Donovan Mitchell did okay. That's very good. It's we when it's the stars. It's hits you when it's fumbling and are you really that embarrassed. That's going going home tonight and you really feeling shame walking the street and you see someone from France like Oh my God they the basketball. I can't look at them right now. Serbian is greeting Dan and the poor. I won't talk to him. I won't look in the eyes but that's just because plumlee was representing me and the Olympics right betsy embarrassing art. That's not that we lost that did that to you. Sorry that Joe Harris is out there with it. You have been differences. Tournament started theory really wearing the results. You feel that I'm wandering around very sad yourself. Yeah it was pretty. Siebel aren't put it on the poll at Lebatardshow. Are you ever proud when the United States finishes in seventh place. Let's see Derek whyte. Try to step off that plane into this country and see what he's getting. Oh boy we're not even we're not just yawning indifference with this team. Nobody's nobody's been care or even embarrassed at how this day is payday and you have a mean on instagram. Just oh Oh hi told you I saw this coming so dramatic. It was on hand exactly like you and I have a playoff game this week right. Oh Yeah it's a must win game. I have some big news about that must win game. Brown's jets Monday night football strep throat. I have a coming up next Aguirre. Mo- is I told you so fiba guy the most annoying guy in the world Dr King's people. Oh wait a minute. Mike and and and and just tell you I'm lockin. I'll tell people now I'll tell them. I hate them Sam Darnold. We'll be out Monday night with Mono. Oh ogle drafting off aww look. I'm not saying I'm not saying that. That's not legitimate news. I am saying that God's thinks his teams a lot more important written than it is teasing Sam Darnold Hasmono the game of the week. It's not what I can't say that word. I don't know why hi Dr WanNa try again. Mono nucleoside. That's correct issue backup Trevor Siemian Games week to starts today a day. Get your fantasy lineup in order draft kings that Carolina Tampa game a real stinker wearing week to I'm already like Oh lost with no Donlevatar Stugatz. If you give them the choice to got you can have the very same thing one of two ways you could get it honestly or you could steal dealer. He'll always choose feeling it STU gotshall. It's the quicker path I mean. This is our show with two guys Sony. Espn Radio Christine Brennan of The Washington Post has written that Antonio Brown should sit down right now that the NFL should just take him out and put him on the exempt list because the exempt list is this created purgatory for guys. Were bringing you bad optics. It's not I I know that that many of you are saying to yourselves especially in a predominantly male audience wait a minute. It's innocent until proven guilty. They're allowed to investigate it. It can't just be a charge even if it's a civil lawsuit but the exempt list basically exists as purgatory for players who can be paid but are too hot in terms of bad had the image to have playing on Sunday and having that conversation dominate your imaging business all week shouldn't she want the NFL to speak to the alleged victim to speak to Antonio Brown to speak. That's GonNa that's GonNa take time. She's getting married. The alleged victim is getting married. She said she'll talk to the NFL next week. So that's what are you doing. The interim is the question and she's saying the exempt list is the place where you put your public blick relations problems. I understand that but up until a couple of days ago all the stuff Antonio Brown did unprofessional but we were laughing about it. We were joking talking about it. This is obviously very very serious and I would like for the NFL. I think the right way to do this is talk to the alleged victim taught to Antonio Brown. Does it matter how long takes about now to God's what about today. What about this Sunday like. Yes take your time with an investigation of course always get as many facts access you can but what do you do in the interim. That could be a three month investigation. It could be but doesn't Antonio. Brown doesn't doesn't any player deserve to have that investigation instigation be completed before we just decide to sit down and let them more stugotz. The exemplify pays them This is the part they're paid not to work and taking away way something that they care about but it exists for this. I'm not even agreeing with Christine Brennan. I don't want football in the middle of all this nonsense but but that's their thing they've become the morals place and that list was invented. That's a strategic invention. That thing didn't exist to put exactly this this kind of problem of what do I do. People keep talking about this. And what do I have am again. A League that beats women rapes them because another guy is in the news with this. That's what it exists for. I don't like it. I want innocent until proven guilty. I want if I want to be able to go through a trial and everything else before things start being punished on anyone in this country but football did this to itself by becoming the morals police and specifically creating this purgatory where we want to hide you over here so people will stop talking about this radioactive thing until we've done that investigation. That's the argument that she's making. I know many our audience would be sitting here saying no no no no. No no innocent proven guilty and can't be. He said she said even though statistically those rape primes by by large percentages are not dishonest claims because this isn't fun. This woman is getting married right. How is this a fun time to be experiencing all of this. It's it's a terrible herbal tea. There's no good time to experience any of this. Whatever she's going through right now if indeed she is telling the truth about what I know. Even even what you're seeing on television right now is drew. Rosenhaus came in here yesterday to not answer a single question except say money Graham. He made sure to get that on television money grab. That's that's what's happening to her right now. That is the punishment that comes with putting some of this unseemly stuff in the light in front of a male audience. It's that largely feels entitled to object. Defying women in worse but Dan if anyone was accused of that one anyone like hey I'm all for the NFL NFL. They do their investigation and they decide that Tonio Bram was guilty of something and he never plays another snap in the NFL again then. I'm good with that. I totally fine with that but let's get the information. I think that's fair and I think everyone's entitled. Aren't you keep making the same point and I keep telling you that football has decided it wants to be ahead of the law on these matters. It's created an infrastructure to deal with this stuff while you can argue on behalf football his told you know we have a higher aurthority. We have a higher. We have a higher standard than the legal system. When it comes to this stuff we have on many occasions now not not waited for innocent until proven guilty and just not like that somebody is a problem in our hands and we can't deal with the image of hey our players literally beat women and children. Do you think that any portion of him going on the list are not going on. The exemplars has to do with the way his contract structured because says he's paid but a lot of his salary is performance based so if they sit him out for three or four weeks he can't get the numbers to get paid and then what do you do with the Players Association because I'm sure there's GonNa be some sort of grievance filed on his behalf not letting him play to get his money uh-huh well but this is the problem you say a grievance but this stuff should be collectively bargain. This was invented by Commissioner Michener. Who has the power to do this stuff. It was given to him and they keep fighting it in court. It's one of the reasons the players union has such a publicly bad relationship with the Commissioner Commissioner took. This power cadel came to this power because he does stuff like this. He was doing it ten years ago to the bengals. It's how he got famous. Miss is no. I'm not waiting till innocent until proven guilty. I have this power. I'm the Authority my employees in this America in this league will not stain my vice my my shield and so they invented all of this for this situation and he's still out there and I understand why Christine Brennan of the Washington Post would be writing that even though I would side with all of the things that's got saying that any of us in this situation would want a would already feel bad about the fact that we were being smeared if it's not true and on top of that would be experiencing everything that's happening now to Our Name. But why do you think he's still out there. Like why do you think he's practicing because they don't know what to do with him. I think this stuff is very hard. Because of all these conversations they make more news if they put him on the exempt list. You're out here making the argument now. All of a sudden everyone on sports television is having the domestic abuse and rape conversation and you're taking sides on an issue issue and making it the thing that carries us through the news stream till Sunday's games again can offer the reprieve.

Best Of: Fantasy Baseball

"Bedale podcast is brought to you by the new Capital One saver card or four percent cashback on dining entertainment two percent at grocery stores. One percents on all purchases. What's in your wallet? These sees the base of the Dan lebatardshow with this to got spot Cass. I wanna get into comedy news. I wanna get into something that happened last night. Why it is the NBA is better at social media than any of the other sports leagues. You saw PJ Tucker walked into the arena with James harden last night to face Milwaukee. PJ? Tucker was wearing a shirt t shirt that read I'm with the MVP, and there was an arrow and they're walking into the arena together, and the Milwaukee Bucks evidently took that and Photoshop harden out after the bucks beat Houston. And now PJ Tucker's wearing a shirt, I'm with the MVP and he's walking into the arena with Janas. What a reason that I can't talk more about this because to God's distracted. He's talking to Billy about his fantasy draft. Ringer for those of you don't know we discovered many years ago that got cheats at fantasy leagues by by bringing in mercenaries and people who are better than he is to help make him rich, and he's three picks away from some pick and his draft. He says there's some draft going on and that he's flown inferno in with like an expense account to take care of it private jet. This is not just any draft. This is the big draft. Okay. This is the what I do every single year. I've been doing it for like three decades. I do basketball. I do football. I do baseball. And we are just three picks. You could say I'm in the whole, Dan, we are just three picks away from my first round selection. Or should I say infernos first round selection? The very exciting day. I mean, it's really exciting. Lot of money on the line. What do you mean in the whole? Well, I don't know hick away from being on deck on deck in the whole someone's at bat his name is Dicky. And then my brother is on deck, and then I'm in the home and Dicky. Slow the entire thing down because we're trying to get a couple rounds in before the official start at five thirty. But there's always that guy in the draft year. Mo who just slows everything down every time. It gets the Dickie the entire draft stops it's absurd. Let's go digging is Dicky busy, perhaps he's hosting a national radio show. It's draft. A all right. Dicky needs to clear the calendar for draft. But what is your relationship with this infernal ringer? That's. Man, not much of a relationship. But here's the thing. Yesterday was my draft. And I received just two guys they said cigarettes in front of any picks any sleepers. You wanna toss my way? And he's like, I can give you a friend who's number. I'm like that's not necessary. It's not that here's really because I didn't wanna embarrass myself in front of him. I because I didn't do that much prep work, and I didn't want inferno to judge me man, like five ten minutes later. I got a book from inferno and sue God. And I added that to my own no tonight added that to other notes, I was asking anyone who would give me answers yesterday who should take this strap and all these names written down, I little lines dividing. So I know who I was drawing stars next to the people that everybody was giving me because I said, you know, what this guy with a star next to him. That's someone I need because everybody thinks that I need that highlighter. I did have a highlighter. I had in fact, I had to highlight pink and yellow have you gotta have it means business, Dan. I'm there. I have all my list. I have you know, this is my game plan. Now. Here's the thing. I didn't come up with a strategy. I just had listened name. So I didn't know who. I wanted to take where so I said, you know, what some of these people? They're not going to know because they don't have infernos insight on this. I'm not gonna leave these people. These can be eighth ninth round guys here. Right. So I start going, and I'm picking the people that I want. I'm here. Boom. Boom, boom here. Sure. Enough people that I actually want are going to picks ahead of me. So then I have to freak out because I only have a minute to make this pig. And you know, I second guess myself. I don't know if you would you sound like you'd be Dickey you'd be where the draft time. No, I'm not Dickie. No, no, no, no. I'm not taking my cousin was Dickie yesterday where we had to pause the draft for him. And it's like listen this, and we don't need the pas a draft as eighth pig. You're a teacher. You didn't get home from work at eight o'clock at night. I don't believe that story that's clearly ally. All right, but we had deposit draft for him anyways. So I over thought it, Dan. I don't know if you're gonna I over thought it, and I had all this work done by inferno, and my other friends, and then sure enough I got maybe like two people from the list of four hundred names because I thought I knew more, and then I thought I'll take them next next round. And sure enough other people my league, they were wise to these players also, and they swooped in and they got them, and I was the fool. Yesterday or other vertigos out there, man, right? But you have to have a plan, and that's why I hired inferno. He does not waver. He knows exactly who were taking and every single round before the draft of it starts. The problem is just does, you know, the problem, Dan, as you would know with all your fantasy expertise the problem with the plan is everybody needs to stick to the plan and some people come in with their own agenda. So you know, let's say there's only two or three good shortstops out there. Right. You think I could take shorts up in the fourth round two of the three good shortstops? God. Now, I need shorts up and the plants starts veering out of control, and I'm trying to grab the wheel in this draft. And people are not falling the script they should be following. And we're going all over the place. That's how these things get out of control. I don't know how in frontal keeps his composure because I can't let me ask you guys a question because baseball that's where fantasy all began. Correct. I'm pretty sure that I know the people are knew the people that helped invent it, but didn't get any of the credit for having or the money for Glenn Wagoner's. If you look it up he was part of their friends. Inventive and. Saint was part of a group. They claim to have invented fantasy baseball. I actually don't know of Glenn Wagner is still alive. But baseball has now been passed right in every single way. Because I feel like baseball would. That that baseball can be popular with young people. If I can get young people interested in fantasy the way the football is interesting to a lot of people because they're involved in fantasy baseball makes it more difficult because there's so many games. Yeah. But I think it also keeps people attention. It gets them through the season gets them through the summer. I'm guessing that baseball is still the most popular of fantasy no way. I think it might be. I check it out. I was reading an article recently where baseball the most amount of first I ball. That's the first lie. I was reading an article recently is not something that we except for read it he passed it along to me. He gave me some notes on it, by the way, some guy oak rent. Okay. Daniel Ogrin appears to be the guy who invented fan. He got no money, but Glenn Wagner. Does stick acclaim into inventing inventing rotisserie league baseball is he still around with us. I'm working on one thing at a time here, man. There was a thirty for thirty about rotisserie facet baseball nose. Back into dozen ten or our history chicken. Transition. That's his father. That's the apple not falling far from the tree. That is absolutely Cody family humor. Somebody says one word go with a non sequitur that doesn't have anything to do with anything his father who is on the on the brink of senility loves that joke, and you just saw the apple the unfunny apple falling from the unfunny tree. And then he swigs his water. Like, you said something funny. So what if someone asks you, well, what about it? What about rotisserie chicken delicious? Thank you. Put it on the poll Guillermo is into rotisserie chicken delicious. I found a bunch of dead Glenn Wagner's. But I don't know if this is your friend. Much of a friend. You would know either live or shoot. That's the true. My why information on my quote, unquote, friend was a little flimsy donlevatar, the Cleveland or hotel sits on a famous strip of land. And it's a party palace there. Sometimes these conventions that roll through here that are terrifying. Couple of weeks ago is the bitcoin people. Stugatz. They call the the events seventy thousand tons of metal. It's more than that. A lot of middleman. I mean, listen to me, ROY. I love Miami. That music has made me consider moving.

The Dan lebatardshow is brought to you by certified financial planner professionals. Find yours at let's make a plan dot org the coaching paradigm. It feels like to me in the NFL has shifted some where it doesn't have to be the regal presidential disciplinarian guy. It could be McVeigh's changed this right where it can be a little bit. Yeah. A guy younger than his players in that sport leading. And so the permutation that ends up happening off of that is Arizona has given the kingdom to a guy who was thirty five and forty at Texas Tech a guy who got run out of Texas Tech going thirty five and four. And then failed his way up to the job. He now has the first pick and he's running out. It looks like the previous regime to get his own quarterback in their people are swimming. The Cuyler Murray is going to end up there. And now Kingsbury the young guy young swaggering single guy. Is giving his players cell phone breaks. And it's a smart idea. It just makes me wonder though, if he needs the break, so he could swipe right on his dating apps. He doesn't want to be bogged down down with his meetings and stuff and he needs a minute. Every once in a while to go outside and make sure that everything is is the cell boat that put this on the on the poll Guillermo is the cell phone break for the players or is it for Kingsbury to sniff around bumble farmers only dot com. That's actually a great theory because he wants to check his phone too. But I think this is actually an inspired idea. We've all been in the meetings where you don't want to be there, and you want to check your home, but it's rude to do it. And then all that's on your mind is checking that DM you got right fellas. That guy that guy though, is he he is very relaxed is very confident, then handsome all his life and used to be the backup to Tom Brady. And so he has the confidence of a man who has been handsome all his life, and he is very relaxed in whatever the job is relaxed and interviews relaxed at the bar sliding up to your girl. He's just so cool man he is confident beyond his resume. Right. Oh, absolutely. I mean, there are rumors out there that he is dating Holly Saunders. And I mean, I'm telling you right now, we ain't check a dating apps if he dating her Holly Saunders. You are so willing to give away the monogamy of others so quickly just because you don't have sex for months at a time and your bedroom is dusty years at a. You you give away. Yes. Clearly, clearly that would be any one woman would be enough for a man who is interested in meeting. Many women. Kingsbury is in a different spot though. The the leaders on this stuff don't look like him. And I'm not talking about handsome. I'm just talking about a guy coming in. You know that this is going to be a players coach. This isn't a disciplinarian. This is the guy who did bottle service was that a Houston Mike bottle service. He was having. He had like a ice cream truck show up. We'll have him tell the story in his own words in a second. I think it was a Texas tack is is where he did that. But yeah, it's it's changed a bit right with McVeigh with Kingsbury. But what he implemented is. I think very smart idea like young people want to check their phones. What's the difference between that and a bathroom break? Right. Just go. Check your phone. See if you have any tax check your social media, maybe post just love the idea of the Zona cardinals like Larry FitzGerald, given a whole key to the bathroom through bathroom breaks were kindergarten. Think it's bad PR by Kingsbury. If you call the just a break or a shorter meeting or anything, no one would care, but the fact that he called it a cellphone break. It's not like they can only break Justin look at their cell phones. And if they want to do anything else. No, hey, what are you doing get back? Here. You want your cell phone no than Sicher as back down. Let's listen to this. Let's listen to the sound of Kingsbury players coach. What's the craziest thing you've done in an effort to have a good practice? We were at university Houston, we brought an ice cream truck. But we still with some girls from like one of the clubs like the bottle girls. And. Our that was impressive. That was a good practice. Minute. Wait a minute. What did you do what you feel the I? His a bottle service. You know, she bottle service. That's a different America back. Then when we were doing that. And I don't feel like he could do that right now. That's like maybe he'd have a better record. But he spent more time planning games in the middle. Averitt shows. Who was most outraged by this news like what other NFL Kodo Polian? How about Gettleman? Oh in a what it might have been the brass into what I take it back the grass of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Listen in back to that sound two thousand fourteen and my right, fellas. Yeah. That'd be or a different. Yes. We are my guesses. You wouldn't be quite that relaxed with that information and that interview in two thousand nineteen things change fast, and he really did. So Kingsbury is now your leader in Arizona, and I'm trying to figure out to God's who else. Can I put in front of you and keep in mind? I liked this guy. And I believe that he's good at offense. And I believe he is part of the new wave of coaches where the guy you need as your franchise face. I think I've told you this before got there are many many head coaches who become head coaches, and then miss the coaching the actual coaching because the job requires so much other bureaucratic stuff that they miss. I man I was just a coordinator. And that's what I like doing like calling the plays. I like just getting in the game and preparing for that game. And they're just so many parts of the job that are different. So Kingsbury can go in there and be a glorified offense coordinator whose only job it is to make sure that he makes the quarterback better and not concentrate on any of the other nonsense. And then that's how you get Jared. Gough? Did you see did you guys see that these the owners meetings? They said that the the great play them according made on Brandin cooks in the end zone was interference in that. The Rams should've had the ball at the one yard line. It was interference in the people. Really? Yeah. Wow. And now they're going to review that oh, man. I'll pay one. I mean, it just struck me. That's God's might actually be a great NFL head coach. Now, imagine this. If you had someone to do all the actual work of coaching and play diagramming and Xs and os and also God's have to do is the meeting people and be the face guy and talk to the media, shaking hands kissing babies. He'd be he'd be a tremendous coach be a disaster. Everybody on that roster would think that they're starting now he'd be good. He'd be caught in so many public lies. I mean, so many public lives. He would be in the news every day Kornheiser and wilbon arguing about some public lie that that's part of the job then, but you'd get caught part of the job is. Being good at lying. Right. Mike is exactly right. I mean, all three quarterbacks would show up every Sunday thinking, they're the guy that started. This show in free time for some ads is that a bad thing. No want them to one of those. Yeah. Morale that we would be great. I mean Sunday be really bad for morale because he'd be like, oh, he lied to me. Let's that's exact- practice would be all with that is I'd make it up to God's his philosophy. Is let me give you six days of good morale with lies and then all endure whatever comes on the seven day. And then we'll do it again next week. Now, it it Lissette guys I want you ought to be my started. But get Dell. I mean, he told me I think what started yet. I can't have all threes. Threads adults Paul not mind. When you want me to do donlevatar? Guillermo sassy. Stugatz sexy when you're Sesing VC's live with our show with his two guys on ESPN radio. Stugatz.

Everyone says he's lying about something Stu got his is getting everyone away from him by just saying look it up. Look it up lets the way he does it. Look it up. A mean has a theory on what's happening with Stu gods and inferno. A means got a fight club type theory. Spoiler alert here that there is no inferno that it is just a product of stugatz imagination. And that he has just created an alternate universe. Where he goes to an expert who is the better version of himself. I don't think he even realized like he's deep so deep into it that he's created an alter ego Tyler Durden if you will named inferno, and this person has all the quote unquote fantasy. Advise Todd was the tough guy at Norton wasn't really tough. And so when you texting and you said, I gotta wait for thumbs up. You're actually texting yourself, right? He's real wasn't Eisenberg tried to hire. All right. Well, it's funny that you say that because jamey Eisenberg is with us now on ESPN radio and Jamie. I can you can you explain to us whether you tried to hire infernal don't get in here with a sausage thing wasn't jumpy, quiet. I was just saying before we do Jamie joins us on the shell Pennzoil performance line. Jay, don't try and do this Jimmy pay fifty dollars. Amy, jamie. Maybe in front of you.

I thought it might be like a mortal Kombat character or did your people reach out to my people. Just stop just. If they did. It was unbelievable to me. I have never listen, we're happy to take a resume. I really long. So the the right people. But I am in no position to hire. Anyone had authority. Jamie. Listen to me. This is awkward I for whom. It's about to get awkward for Jamie. They offered inferno your job. Okay. Oh, well, I that's disappointing. I hope I hope it's a mean theory that if a made up character because that would make my life. He's and by the way, how bad is Dickie at this. I mean, you kidding me. I mean, the guy I mean, there's a guy in every draft. You just makes everyone else sit around and wait forever and pivots through. God's don't Jamie? Thank you for being on with us.

That's why Jamie Eisenberg tried to hire him. And then you have Jay z Jamie Eisenberg was there and says I've never heard of. But it's such a third of them. It's such a great pivot by solicits. When Jamie writes, a check every year, he's writing it out to inferno. You guys should you guys? I want you to absorb going for funds got Stu gods? It's soothing himself with his hands because he rarely gets caught in a lie quite this overtly. But you just saw the slippery pivoting of the. Master gymnastics guy trying to get away from the lie. And then finally, just nuking everything and Abby lives with this. My nuking everything by saying and also Jamie on national radio, they tried to hire someone to replace you coach material.

You don't recognize or more to the point you ignore? Put it another way. Do you ignore all cold from a number? You don't recognize? Yes, or no, it's weird. My wife always feels the need to answer the call or at least call them back. And I'm like, hey, if they really wanted you. They would have left a voicemail if they knew they would have sent the tech saying, I'm trying to get a hold of you. I'm like, what are you doing? My dad loves answering those calls and then unspools Ling giant lies on whoever's call it. I mean, it's great, and he's just wonderful to watch. It's his most creative space. I want to ask a mean in the rest of you. What would still got as a head coach actually looked like and I wanna get to comedy doors as well. But before we do that we've got Mike Ryan is immersed in court bat, I want I want to know first of all a lot of people writing in. That's a myth that court doesn't actually help you in bats. But man is it embarrassing to put Super Bowls in a bat. Have your bad explode Super Bowls are all over the field. And you're trying to cheat and clearly trying to cheat, but you're doing so so poorly that not only are you getting caught. But the means you're using doesn't actually work on your stealing my thunder a little bit because I covered a two thousand seven episode of Mythbusters in which they tested whether whether or not cork bats actually help and it was determined that. They're actually detrimental to the bats performance. That is crazy and here. A handful of famous uses of cork bats in baseball. What is the most recent one? The most me Sosa three we've got a long time without a corked bat say scandal, Wilton Guerrero, lads brother that happened in ninety seven then Chris Sabo, the aforementioned spuds in nineteen ninety six Albert bell nineteen Ninety-four Billy Hatcher of the Astros in eighty seven at Greg nettles of the New York Yankees and nineteen seventy four was the first documented use according to this week. He entry, however, Phil garnered minute in January twenty ten on Houston radio station that he wants us corked bat against Gaylord Perry and hit a home run with it. Why would he do that? Why would you snitch on yourself? You want to hear the excuses by 'cause there's an excuse column. You wanna hear the all these have there? Forgive my ignorance, Mike. I know that as I age we put SS on places that they don't belong and take them away from places. They don't belong. It's not spud the nickname for Chris Savo. What's Chris Sabo was spuds? I added to Z to it because I'm cool like that. Okay. All right. So, dan. Sammy Sosa most recent one suspended eight games corked bat was the offense. What was the reason? It was a batting practice bat, according to Sammy Sosa wind Guerrero, suspended ninety seven eight games. He was suspended. He didn't give an excuse come on. Come on the chin now come up with something. Chris Sabo suspended seven games. Wow. And find twenty five thousand dollars by the team corked bat again with the offense. What was his excuse? He borrowed the bat from an unnamed teammate then wanna snitch that's a good move stable, by the way, Chris tables glasses. He was a hero for us following about follicly-challenged. That's here. But see what they can see. He was a hero thickly. That's the word. I'm looking for Dan. All right. Albert bell nineteen Ninety-four suspended seven games. He. Didn't give an excuse. That's not fun. Billy hat. You. Never does. He doesn't have to explain themselves. Just run you over in his car is terrifying. Oh my God. I was legit skill. Well, everybody was a little scared of Albert bell including his teammates. There are a couple of guys in my lifetime in baseball that I've seen everyone. Be scared of one of them was the second basement for the pirates Jose leaned who had a habit of throwing a hunting knife across the locker room in a way that would embed itself somewhere in the locker. Wait, a habit a habit, and yes a habit and people let intimidating. He's tiny. But he had a hunting knife that he would throw across the room, and it would embed and so self in the locker, and it was Albert bell. Who one time objected to the fact that they were messing around with the thermostat, and he didn't like that. They kept messing around with the thermostat. So we just took a bat to it and everybody just ran away. Bill was heckled by one of the fans any turn around into a baseball dentist. Just right. Thinking about this. Now, I'll repel is so strong that he only should have been allowed to play with a corked bat. Right. Because if ninety hit the ball too, far, I feel like everyone was afraid throughout the was it Kevin Mitchell or this guy in terms of people fearing in baseball guy that you simply new not to trifle with Mo Vaughn was big variety. But you've got to have an undercurrent Kevin Mitchell caught a fly ball with his bare hand one time. Yeah, he terrified people. But I think it was our bell. I mean, I've I think most people were terrified of of not most people everyone was terrified of Albert bell. You mentioned Bill is being snuck out of the empire's room. It was Jason Grimsley who went into the air duct and snuck his way into the buyers room and replace his bet with Paul Sorrento's bat. That's great. I think about that think about that assignment. Imagine the conversation that had to take place. Can we get that guy? Can we get on the phone today? Alison, Jason Grimsley. I one of the Jason Grimsley was sent through an air conditioning. Duct of some sort to go to the fires room. Like, you can't go. You can't go there. This is like an ocean eleven episode. He's going he's going into the umpire's room to replace a bad. You said it was Grimsley and it was Sorrento's bat. Yes. All right. So Billy Hatcher in nineteen eighty-seven was suspended ten games for corked bat and his excuse. Now, remember Sables that he borrowed it from Annette teammate, Billy Hatcher name names. He said he borrowed it from pitcher Dave Smith. So he was suspended, and then the originator Greg nettles nine hundred seventy four was suspended ten games for bat with super balls in it and his excuse was he received the bad as gift from a fan so setup these these guys are Stu gods? The left I'm here. You hear all the time in sports about accountability. And not a one of them said. Yeah, it was trying to cheat. Why our air ducts made in these movies, and I guess in this case to hold the weight of a human body because I feel like if I were to Clement an air duct it fall immediately. And I'd get really seriously injured, but somehow our Belle's bat someone's crawling through the air conditioning. Why would you have something support like three hundred pounds in case people on a crawl through it, and we backtrack for just a second? And all of us analyze if Albert bell comes to you and says, hey, I'm Pires room. Go get my cheating bat you go. You gotta go. Even if it's through an like, and the idea the plan starts to form, listen, this is what you're gonna do Grimsley. You're going to crawl around like die hard in the air conditioning. And you're gonna you're gonna come down in the middle of the unpire 's room racer, I'm imagining alva- bellsa. Hey, you gotta get the bat. Well, how am I going to get in there? They're the security there. I don't care. You gotta go get that that and then Grimsley comes up with the idea. Well, I guess if I go through the air. You think about our scared? You have to be if you're Jason Grimsley much behind you as Albert bell threatening you to get his cheating material. I wanted front of you is I've got to descend into this pit of judges where they're keeping the evidence. And I've got to go do something that might be felonious. His his other option was the put on a wig and from listening because they're, hey. This is the way. Seducing Joe west on his right past the locker room. Joe Ghezzi anything? So you walk brims Leon is that the deal I wanted. I remember I want to get while you went along way for that joke. Well, that's make. I know. But you brought grizzly only do your joke. How did he get that nickname? He was forty two and fifty eight with a four seven seventy RA donlevatar. Did you guys see that? We're going male cheerleaders this year. Did you guys know this NFL is going male cheerleaders? Stugatz. Good contributions from both of you. A good contribution. Would you guys rather go back to RG threes NFL anyway? You gave me nothing. I through the topic out there just stared at both of you. And if I weren't talking right now, you'd still be staring back silently VC's live at our show with his two guys on ESPN radio. I o American apology and people have several races and apology for wondering aloud during the last segment, whether white people had exclusive domain over the sideburns. I appreciate you. Eddie murray. Teaching me something today all these years after your playing days. It's my fault. I forgot about the seventies. And eighties in terms of style. They were beautiful side. They were. So I apologize to America. Eddie Murphy, white people and black people Eddie Mair Eddie Murray and zone. Use me Eddie Murray. Big fun. This is why is that a big fine. Eddie Murphy Eddie Murray. A pretty understandable mistake is an honest to God snow just forty seven eight six four five six four eight three seven is the telephone number. The reason I give it to us because I defy you America to do better than out Ferguson. We were trying during the break to do better than gout Ferguson. We were trying to do we gave up quickly. I mean, we didn't think we could do better than the three fingers Brown, his his teammates gout, Ferguson and mumps McGee. It's okay. I was gonna go come on. It's again gout Ferguson for some reason felt to me perfect in terms of a baseball player from nineteen zero three back when it was being dominated by someone who had three fingers that was one hand. Right, mike. It wasn't. You said it was technically four fingers, but what the fourth finger didn't work. Yeah. The I think what in the middle fingers was just so normal broken that it was pointless. Did he invent the splitter? And was it a splitter? If it's three thinkers, no his best, which was a Koerbel. Okay. Thank you, ROY. How do you know so much about Mordecai Brown? I would like to thank Ken burns for that. Oh, okay. That was that. So Ken burns wasted his time. His precious filmmaking time instead of being in civil civil war rolled doing that baseball movie in which he had to chronicle the excellence of Mordecai Brown. Yep. All twenty eight hours of baseball whose Ken burns really God. What about like scurvy? Green. Irvy's good. But again Irvy's gala, right? Put that on the poll hold on a second put down on Paul at lebatardshow. I'm going to take I'm going to take calls from America on this. But what is a better name for a teammate of three fingers? More to come Mordechai three fingers Brown is it gout Ferguson. Or is it scurvy greet? Can we change it to scurvy Graham because I think that that might pull it? Yes. You can. Nice work segments. Takes. It is a good good distinction. I think you get yourself in the game with scurvy Graham. Herkus it. I want to go back in time though for a second back when baseball mattered like this. Roscoe club foot. I mean, just put them all up there. I'll take calls as well. I will do this. Let's see I don't trust the callers with the funny. This has the possibility of being terrible because we haven't trained the callers on the excellence that is making fun of nineties names, or in this case, I guess nineteen hundreds early nineteen hundreds Roscoe COPA put in the negro leagues. Though. He he wasn't a major leaguer. Never got a chance. Two three finger. Not enough time has passed the nineteen twenties and teens Tim, do you have something better than gout Ferguson. Tim polio. Pete peterson. Pete is pretty good. Dan, you're on ESPN radio. Dan. Go ahead. Shingles henderson. These are all pretty good. But not. Sean, you're on ESPN radio. Go ahead. Not a club foot Crawford the club foot categories, claiming I'm sorry. Go ahead. Jack. Derek? Stupid. Fluky Kilian back in those days, it could so you, but it was more likely to kill you in the days of three fingers. Mordecai Brown is a little awkward that he picked the guy who actually has the disease named after him. Thank you. I mean. Yes, it is a little awkward. Yes. Not as awkward as pointing it out though. So we can't pass all the way unnecessary on the bright side. It's not the same disease. So seventy six four five six four eight three seven or any of those better than gout. Ferguson any of them. Did you guys select any of them clearly as being better than gout Ferguson? No, I like flu Gary. See this is what always happens with our yard. But not got. I agree that flew Gehrig was good. But this is what always happens with our games were sitting there playing it one way. And then it just turns into puns. So so there you don't care about either the illness or the player now, you're just making it flew Garrick because it's wordplay and this happened every time we play one of these games around. Here we derail and guts is. Usually the culprit who makes us do. It is out of show get famous, Dan, you know, that is it with with the comedic genius of calling him flu Gehring while doing nineteen ten humor about Mordecai three fingers around. It's about the time that the show started. It feels like. We were huge in the nineteen hundreds luau, dengue fever. Oh, see this is what it always turns into Troy headache. Men say he had concussions. Don't do that. Oh my God. Point to the ocean. He had concussions and we've got to be serious about those. They used to be fun cautions. But they're not anymore. Okay. They're surrounded and drowned and an important social commentary. Now, the line is mumps Chris. Roberto lumbago. I heard you say, Mike gout. Oh, I heard you say it into the other room. Testing wanted. You say on the air. We're doing a radio show. I was giving it to the guys what I mean since when do you give the good jokes to them? Never you were testing to see if it wouldn't work out here. So you whispered back there might gal. I mean, I I didn't know really what I was looking for was clarity on whether or not we closed the gap category. Chris palsy. Rachel mad cow. It always becomes this. I'm gonna make you laugh at mad cow now. Wait, you're going outside of baseball. Now. We're no longer doing. You guys. Always muddle this stuff. What are you see I want the show that Amine and Billy doing back there because that's the one with all the lines that we can't say on the air. Look at him in hiding his face in his shirt and gave back there like LeBron. Wade talking under underneath the top of their uniform six toe Scotto. Typhoid may weather. Baseball opening day is upon us. This show in free time for some at flu Pinella the flu categories been closed. So galley food was. Should it be syphilis Phillips that a piece scoliosis Sanchez? Should it be hemorrhoids Hanke flare in should be lice? Harper. Do the hand Garin when I don't wanna do it. Again, I spent through it on purpose. Take sutcliffe. Oh brinson. Hey, rick. It's richardson. Oh my gosh. What did you? And I mean, what were you arguing about North Korean basketball? I heard you guys yelling at each other. No argument. We were we were celebrating the rules for playing basketball in North Korea or different slam dunks or three points nothing but net shots are four points and teams lose points when they missed free throws. How about that? I love it all of it. I love all of it. I love the idea. I was telling Billy Chris I love that idea of them losing game seven on the shot that was called the nothing but net, but then video replay shows it Nick this a little bit. Put it on the poll. Guillermo, would you be up for the NBA changing the rules to make dunks worth more nothing but net worth more? And what was the other rule change on free? Throw. You lose points for free throws slam dunks three points, which I love by the way. Because now you go to the Dan you go out to all the playgrounds and kids aren't practicing dunks. The practicing is three point shots and how far away from the basket gonna make a shot. This would bring the dunk back. If it was worth reports and then four points for nothing, but nets Rudy Gobert would be the greatest three point shooter, volt on wait a minute. How old are these kids because kids for the most part can't be dunking Stu got. So you can't be practicing dunks. If you're like four foot six I'm saying, you go out to these playgrounds, right where the high school kids are playing kids who are going to go to college eventually like trae young. I guarantee if you want to watch him, you know, a few years ago on the playground. He was not dunking the basketball what he was doing was taking shots. I'm half court. That's what he was doing. Hassan Whiteside would have had like thirty points last night about that. I mean and go bare, right? He broke the record for most dunks in season this year. He'd be the greatest three point score of all time Ray Allen. That is something funny to consider the idea if I told you we're gonna have a hard time explaining this years from now if if I told you, hey who broke the record for who holds the record for dunks in a season Rudy go bears. Probably not where a lot of us are ending. Sue are going to fight with you on one thing though, you said the kids will be practicing dunks not three pointers. But here's the thing nothing but nets count for four point part. So they'd be would they be practicing dumpster would they be practicing shooting even better? That's a good point. And what do you do with the dunk? I is that just three pointers that are nothing. But nets is that two pointers dunk is always into role a nothing but net is is just a finger layup, well, then to dunks become called three pointers because they're worth three points. And then there's a four pointer, which is when it doesn't touch the rim. Right. Right. And so the the play where Derek Jones junior a couple of weeks ago, he didn't quite dunk it, but he threw it down. But it went nothing but net is that seven nothing but net I feel like that rattled around in there. I feel like that was thrown violently to be nothing. But hypothetically, if that were nothing but net, I think it means right? Seven points. They should have a little thing that like registers the sound that the net makes like a noise meter, and depending on the Christmas of that sound more points like all you know, what it could be it could be tied directly to decibels. So if it sounds loud enough, you get that many decibels where the points, ROY. You have a decent swish down here. He said do how you wanna get enough? All right. Seventy six four five six four eight three seven if you wanna call in with your swish sound. Let's let's go. Hold on hold on. Now. I think Billy has has said before that what he likes best is the chain link sound the sound of incorrect that is very dangerous. I'm anti chainlink nets because you'd get a finger on hell. Yeah. The I used to love it. I thought it was the coolest thing, but you cannot trust shades with that it is dangerous. I'm telling you. I'm sure more people have lost fingers that than you know, other things it would cost you finger. All right. Put it on the poll have more people lost fingers in a chain link fence than in other endeavors that would cost you fingers seven eight six four five six. Thanks for nothing. Billy four eight three seven is the telephone number seven eight six. You really petered out. Petered out there. Other endeavors that cost you fingers, you can think of any right? I mean, what other things can you think of that costs kids fingers regularly? What work I would think would want? What is doing one walk? Wars or something three things Brown's the wanna grades pitches validity. You've got three fingers are is is is shop no longer a high school class of any sorts. I think so I think there's only in the movies. I I don't know anyone who ever went to high school where they had like woodwork as class. My dad, did you made a lamp actually? How long ago was that the team eighty even the boy scouts like pinewood dirt more you have to buy a pre made box. Now, you just hammer things together the easiest thing. Royer dead was also you're right. You're right. You're right. You're right. Right. And it's like nineteen seventy with something like that. Right. I'm trying to think of more useless contribution to the show, then my father made a limp and would work. Well, you just taught the billiards. I wouldn't lamps. Yeah. Evidently, Roy's evidently, ROY grew up with the hardscrabble times of wouldn't lamps made by your father, nice, lady, wired, it and everything. Yeah. Yeah. It worked. Yeah. No public school systems really failing us. I couldn't make a lamp if I had to put it on the poll. Could you make a lamp seven eight six four five six four eight three seven is the telephone number. If you wanna call us with your swish sound now, Billy are you alleged table tonight could make no you're wondering, what could you make a table? I could make I look at tables. And I think that is easy a spice rack who a toolbox. That was always one of those things that you made which is really practical. And it was weird because you used your tools to make the toolbox story tools in. Did you put yourself in there? Stephen. Steven you're on ESPN radio. Do you make a good swish sound? So Stephen go ahead. Oh that sounds more like a paper cut nothing. But nylon. Mike, you're on ESPN radio. Go ahead. Mike. I to be. July lost them. All right. We'll bring him back. I'm sorry. Hold on. You come down. Never know everybody come down being over there. Just come down. I felt like I was Jim we've got an hour of show left. We've got all of America our disposal. We will have other people call. Switch sounds quit trying to close the game. I want to make sure he could do it again. Okay. That was pretty good seven eight six, you know, what let's regather ourselves. Everybody's a little hysterical. We need to cool off. We come back with your swish sound snack. Donlevatar? Tom Ricketts is saying that it comes will not allow Sammy Sosa back into that organization for anything moving forward until he comes clean, and when I find absurd about that. And what a hypocrite this guy is is that family made hundreds of millions of dollars off the name. Sammy Sosa by the way, never tested positive for steroid years. And if he was using steroids, which we all -ssume that he was my guess is if he was using it. The Ricketts family had an inkling that that was going on in their own clubhouse ever hit a come out many, many years later as Sammy Sosa must come clean for us to allow him back into our prestigious organization, our club get outta here with that. Stugatz Ricketson and make money off. Sammy sosa. He won the bid in two thousand and nine this was post, Amy Sosa. Well that ruins my argument. VC's live at our show with his two guys on ESPN radio. You've been distracted all show today handling your fantasy draft. You've also lashed out at everyone for your mistakes and you own money here. You haven't paid yet or whatever it is that you were supposed to pay for your fine of blaming others. Right. You're you're just and you blamed Chris for the bad calls last segment. You also you blamed Chris for being a bad. Call screener, you spit that at him. He's taking switch calls right from all over America there. And I and Chris how are you feeling about this batch of calls because I do believe. That this was a decent idea that has died on the vine a little bit. You know to decent idea. I feel okay about the calls. It's a little hard to judge. Because all I'm hearing all in listening for is. So it's really tough. You know, gauge, what's a good one. What's the bad one? I didn't really know Mike a few segments back. I didn't know that was great. And that's the best on I've ever heard. The name, right. The stuff. So what do I do about it? What do I do do? I keep taking calls. How do you feel about this batch? Or should I try to do my own damn sports radio show about boring things like comedy duos? I would take the switch calls. Oh, yeah. I mean, your name is on the show. All right. Well, the telephone number seven eight six four five six four eight three seven if you wanna make swish calls on the radio who have we decided it has the best one. Here was Royd claiming that he has the best one. No. I never said that here's mine. It's not terrible his arable. It's not good. I mean, all you got a great team. Here's a major. There was no they're here at us. Look an air bowl. That's on you. Go ahead. It's on you. I have to burp hold on floors reeling off the end. All right. Excellent work biology is it's it's like similar to guy. So there's only certain days, but you can whistle. You kind of need to make sure there's the right type of moisture in your mouth, and you're gonna make the swish sound you want to get ready. Wow. Not bad. Not bad. Yeah. The data this here. There's going to be. There's got to be a in there. I his mind. Oh, wow. That was a heavy basketball. It helps about a look at you guys. When you do it, can you do it again, go. Amazing might turn. It's more of a whip yours is a horse and the cherry on now my head, and I'm trying to do that sound at the end. 'cause he was right at first. It was just the thing. All right, so seven eight six four five six four eight three seven is the telephone number. If you man, it is raining jumpers. Warriors. Just ran in here. A lot of four pointers. Josh you're on ESPN radio. Josh go ahead. Oh, dear. Leave to us. All right. Make big Josh which sound Cam you're on ESPN radio. Go. Solid. Was it sorry to game? Let's talk do do to do it again Cam. How's it going? I was wondering it sounds like a goal falling into the whole. No, no, no, no. My you're on ESPN radio. Go ahead. Mike. Well, I don't have a net zone. But I do have a funny name for you. Oh. Stopped at an hour ago. PTSD, Gordon, okay. It's why I don't take calls like that that that entire batch. This is your now you guys get to see why it is that this show moved away from calls a longtime ago staff curry. You see what I mean? Now about being a bad call screener? I mean DC is it. I'll ask you gotta anyone you don't live here. No, no. You know? What's guys? Please sit over there. Chris comes to chum it up. Wants to God's can do as a call screener jumped out. Let's see if we can improve this because he does like to criticize Chris Chris doesn't have any Chris any training in this. Maybe stugotz is better at this than Chris is at call screening. It's all a crap shoot. Okay. Maybe in front of the better. Call screener to his alter ego, like passive in the hallways that I love you dude because he doesn't want to hurt his feelings. Okay. But let me explain something to you about this whatever flick shin. It is that Stu gods has dunning Kruger. Whatever it is where he is delusional about thinking that he is better at everything than anyone is what are you laughing about their ROY was exactly what you're saying. You're mad that okay. See that is something guys you too. But you you gotta come stronger than that, man. Listen to sink, Chris answering the phones anymore right through the phone that been doing this for years born to do this. You get out of here. Get out of here. Okay. This is a slowest call screener ever get you got I gotta get a call on the air here. And grand. I gotta get a call on the air here to God's at some point. Listen, do you want the calls the be good dano or do you want him to be bad? All by. I will wait you out. We've got two minutes left in the segment guys. Get him out of my ears cat phones. I I know they're very loud. The headphones are very loud. So we're gonna take these calls in a second from stugatz. But what I'm telling you guys here in the audience. How do you think Stu? Gotcha. Generally goes over at ESPN given that much like with this, call screening experiment. He thinks he can do every job in the building better than the people doing that job in the building. How do you guys imagine that that flies up in Bristol? Because I'm telling you, many people are sick of Stu gods coming into their cubicle era area sort of from a distance and saying that he could do their job better than that. If lies like live balloon. Solid reference. Thank you. Thank you. All right. So we've got no calls right now. We've got not a call at one. All right. Let's go. This is this segment is going to finally produce something after much constipation. There is something Billy. What are you doing? Who? Do you want me to go to here? So that we can get a pebble of something to end this segment. So that I could be done with this experiment of people failing. Well, it was on hold right now. If it's the name somebody give me a name somebody give me something a line to Joe is online. All right. Maybe joel. All right. We don't know if it's Joey or jolt not getting a lot of health, and I've backroom dano early add into the segment aunt you. Santo y'all Santos you're on ESPN radio. Go ahead. I rest my case Joel you're on ESPN radio go at jolt. Know gastro way to go guys donlevatar good work today that was a fun show. Stugatz. It was also intergalactic Lee stupid VC's donlevatar show with his two guys on ESPN radio. So stugatz is now realizing how hard it is to Chris do Chris cody's job. And Chris Cody is now realizing how hard it is to do Stu gods. His job. Listen, buddy. Roy doesn't have what I have to read in front of me. So I don't know what to do. What? What will? I put them in front of students an hour ago. That's just one just because you can't find it doesn't mean as my phone to God's how're the call's going. Do you have any calls here that are worth going to? I do the call. Listen, I realized how difficult the job is. Okay. But you really have to press these people and make them do it again. And again, and you gotta take your time with this stuff. You can't just put him on the air. And that's what I'm talking. I'm yukking it up. We're having a blast here. I think I have four good calls on the one guy. If you missed any of our interviews, go check out our entire interview on demand in the Dan lebatardshow podcast brought to you by Capital One savored card earned four percent cashback on dining and entertainment two percent at grocery stores and one percent all are all other purchases. What's in your wallet? So there are four four calls on the board here, Dan. And I think the one you're gonna like the most to save the best for last is L. Okay. Saved about as L. All right. We'll see how you're doing here at lebatardshow on Twitter who's gonna read the polls is it going to be God's fakes to God's or fake fakes to God's. All. Right. It's fake fake, Stu gods at lebatardshow Instagram and Twitter. Go ahead. What is a better name for a teammate of Mordecai three finger Brown gout, Ferguson. It's got Ferguson. What's the percentage? Thirty three percent. Okay. Get out of here walk into the law anymore. Go ahead. Billy you pick up for fakes to God's here, please. Because he clearly cannot do it in the interim. I will go out to Mike Mike, you're on ESPN radio. What do you have might? Do it again. Tell screener call, Dan. I don't see uproarious laughter or approval in the other room. Josh here on ESPN radio. Josh go ahead. David stay there. We're going to have it. All right. We're gonna have we're gonna have a swish off in a second. Josh, let's see if we can find another person to rival, Josh. So we end the show and we declare a winner once and for all Fred, you're on ESPN radio. Fred go ahead. Back aikman. All right. We got different games being played here. And he lost that game. Seven eight six four five six four eight three seven what are you smiling about Stu guy news cranes and better than I do at lebatardshow on Twitter? What do you have their fakes to God? Have you ever wondered why the athletics use an elephant as one of its logos? Seventy two percent of the audience said no is it rotisserie chicken. Delicious is Dan. The eighty seven percent of the audience agrees eighty seven. Yes is the cell phone break for the players, or is it for cliff Kingsbury lot of votes. Ninety one percent of the audience said it's for cliff Kingsbury. Do you ignore all calls from numbers? You don't recognize? What's the record? Ninety eight percent ninety one percent of the audience said, yes, if you take one step it Kyle farnsworth's direction. Does he take five steps in your dress? I think this one might be a record such a great might be a record day. Right. What do you got ninety one percent of the audience? Do you know why Joe Jackson was shoeless important? Did we get an answer to that? Did anyone actually answer? Why the nickname was show Lewis shoeless? Joe Jackson played without shoes. Seventy nine percent of the audience said, no what is a better name for a teammate of mortified three finger Brown. Never had it before the options. Gout Ferguson, scurvy Graham for flu. Gary never had it before thirty three percent across the doubt Percocet. Thirty three percent said scurvy Graham. Wow. That has never had thirty four percent. I really thirty three said flu Garrick that has never happened before the polls. Okay here. It is the promised. Call screening of stugatz has resulted in L L, you're on ESPN radio. Go ahead L. That do after great ducks finance call, by the way, love the show. You guys have a real important sports question here. Hell I'm gonna you doing.

All right, fine. I'll stay with Al a first time calling you guys. I don't know where to swish sound as I'm a real sports fan over here. Okay. So I've got a real sports question for you guys. Should I spend money go into a real state of your ballpark in oracle park and watch the science play or should I spend money and go sit in the sun and the heat and Levi's and watch the forty Niners play the real important sports question for you guys on the poll God's go walk into the ocean. Doing what are you doing? Why did you put that person on the phone with me? Like that's not what he said to me on the phone. I mean, I gotta be honest. Totally Duke me, I've still got Josh here. Waiting to do a swish off for with somebody. Apparently apparently shoeless Joe Jackson got blisters while wearing a new pair of cleats. So before his next bet he took the shoes off and somebody said to him, you shoeless son of a gun you in the nickname. That's not what they said Pesident that's been edited for content. I thought ROY was actually going there. No, I've been working to radio on I value. My job. Are you guys gonna help me is anyone here going to help me with a call? It's just everyone bouncing into each other pinball ING into each other not doing what they're supposed to do. Stitches yelled at someone put that on hold the phone. Elicits? I lost. No, it's easy. If you actually talked to them take your time and listen to what it is they're doing and then and then give them got it. Go quickly to Mike. Mike, you're on ESPN radio. Go ahead. Mike.

I'm so excited to bring you this episode of the podcast because this is something that was manifested back in twenty twenty when this man while in the big brother twenty two house talked about an idea for a podcast. He wanted to do one day and wishes do come true. That is here. Please welcome to time. Big brother superstar and fourteen. The great ian is here to talk about the movie smart house. Hey rob thanks for having me. It's been a long time. It's been a long time and we have not probably done a podcast since what may be like big brother eighteen. I want to say celebrity big brother one time did one i think. Because that's that was the last season i watched. Okay joan asked me to put these things. In order of what came first big brother eighteen. We brought the celebrity one. Maybe the big brother eight celebrity one came after brother eighteen but before brother. Nineteen after nineteen bucks. Okay you're the expert. I'll even i don't even watch. Yeah okay well. There's all blurred of me anyway in terry in the big brother house talked about how that he would like to do. A movie podcast about a nineteen ninety nine disney channel original movie which is now available on disney plus and ian talked about it in a room with. I don't remember who else was there. Enzo certainly was. There was like what i believe. Cody might have been like. You're doing a wait. Hold on the podcast is longer than the movie. why yes yes I believe you're right. I was there. Was there definitely and finally of and i think tyler was there because it was it was in the photo room which is where they slept so I was sitting. I think on the floor on the side bed or certainly. You're there so yeah. It was an idea from there. I think it was first conceptualized in around two thousand thirteen. Yes i mentioned the idea. You know we've come a long way with streaming services disney plus so just wasn't available then now okay all right so if you want to stop this and watch the movie. It's actually a quick watch. it's eight. I think it's the shortest movie of all time. It's barely a movie. It's an hour and twenty two minutes. If you want to check it out on disney plus it is available if you have the widely popular service you could check that out. It's called smart house. Rama nine hundred ninety nine directed by lavar burton starring katie seagal of married with children fame sons of anarchy futurama among others If you to stop down and join us here we'll just catch up with the in here for for a minute ian since big brother twenty two. How's everything going. Things have been going really well. Definitely very smoothly. Nice transition back in plant a lot of backgammon which is great Ben interviewing for jobs. But i'm not in any rush so it hasn't been going well. Okay fills about your history with smart house. Why why was that a film that has stuck with you over all these years you know. I think it might have been because my first experience with this movie was at a pool party around nine hundred ninety nine yes and remember that and some other disney channel original movie were being discussed and i said why haven't seen it. I haven't seen this movie. But you know disney would tend to air things repeatedly right around the time they came out so probably about two weeks later i caught. It was actually very good as far as the disney channel. Original go and i think i watched obviously a lot of disney channel original movies probably from there and maybe the three years following and i don't think any of them ever really touched smart house in terms of overall satisfaction. I had a debate. You call it. Someone said motocross or something like that. It's not a bad film. I mean you know cuban the standard but look the hours also solid but the smart houses. i'm pretty sure consensus number one for a lot of people. So it's not just you. You would feel like that many people who are sort of like around your age give or take a couple years would be very familiar with smart house. Yeah i think so. I mean i mean i was in the target demo when it came out and i think that it's probably one of the disney channel original movies that has the the highest accolades that being said. I probably haven't watched in. Since me and five. I i caught it on maybe around two thousand thirteen two thousand twelve but that being said man i think a lot more in two thousand five for obviously you forget didn't hold up as well did authen age. It doesn't age well. And i'm sure we'll get into why that's the case And he just need for a for any reason particularly. I mean it's not like that it was offensive right. I don't even in that sense. I think that it's just because nowadays This house is not far from your standard play. It's kind of interesting to talk about. What was nine thousand nine hundred ninety nine version of a futures account versus like a house that you might live in in twenty twenty one. yeah it's it's markedly markedly similar to like sir. Yeah google or alexa. Yeah that's basically the idea of what's what's going on here in this house so we'll talk you through it even if you didn't watch the movie we'll tell you about everything that happened here in this film but what was it particularly about this film that really connected with you and stayed with you for some twenty something years you know. I think it might have been right. it's one of those things when you're a kid you might see something. Parodied were mentioned like a reference to popular culture. And you see the parents or the the reference to i so whenever there's a line in the movie where the dad says isn't it kind of like big brother is watching you. Global blah brother had not even premiered yet. It's reality show and is referring to nine hundred eighty four but i always remember hearing that. What is he talking about. And then as the show big brother came on. And i came more familiar with what george orwell nineteen eighty-four i always. I always thought of it. Because i always watch big brother a lot and i mean the is. I mean. it's not that different right. I mean the house you know. It's yeah now coming around through the speakers berry similar. So i mean it's really stuck with me over over the years. Would you say it's fair to say that this film changed the trajectory of your life would your big brother Journey or interest in big brother had happened. The way did. Had you not known about that one line in this film where the dad and smart house talks about. It's like big brother. What's not give too much credit rob. This could be sort of like your cane. Like smart house like It all started with smart house. Change your whole life. It very well may have. Yeah okay all right well. Let's talk about this a film. Which we we get right into it. I was surprised to see directed by lavar burton. Are you a lavar burton fan. I am. I mean you know reading rainbow surprised too because obviously when i was younger i had not not not exactly reading credit so when i saw i was like oh i didn't know that he was responsible for this lavar burton which is also interesting. Are you a star trek person by any chance. I'm not. I'm really not as surprisingly i've seen like would but yeah so lavar. Burton is one of the principal characters in star trek the next generation that there are definitely some similarities between the smart house and living on board. The starship enterprise a little bit of a sci-fi kick to it also little man thing about lavar burton one hell of a one hundred thousand dollar punitive players. The best probably one of the best in terms of by. I mean him and billy crystal for my money or the goats as far as spell had they been appearing on celebrity hundred thousand dollar pyramid on. Now i'm talking back from the dick clark days. Yes olin's yeah. I don't know if they're on the more recent one. I haven't seen but the that that's always been one of my game shows and i always remember you saw lavar burton on their redefinition infer tree. He was gonna use going to do pretty well as the time. That's very interesting. Yeah i mean. Billy chris like it's like i feel like that he's more of an improviser burden that his background. Yeah i haven't been on pure mid forums or or you know. I don't know if there's our flash pyramid or anything like that but now i mean it is probably at from what i have seen those consensus best. Yes you think that there may be a hundred thousand dollar pyramid reddit near my pay for all. I have no idea okay. Do you think is smart house. Yeah i don't think there's a smart house sub reddit but there might be like a disney channel. Regional movies left. No doubt that at all but for the nineties. Kids are very nostalgic. I feel like there wouldn't be the craziest thing in the world. I doubt it at all. I mean i mean if we have suffered its devoted to wall street degeneracy then It doesn't quite a lot then went. Wouldn't doubt it if every single movie ever made have okay all right so we have the idea of the smart house and we opened up the film with our main character. Whose name is ben. I didn't find ben to be particularly likeable protagonist in. Yeah i mean he especially at the beginning of the movie he definitely came off our little bit of a prick. And i mean almost away and we'll get into this. It seemed early on me like he had little. Hoa itis he has a paper route and he does that and he's like we see him like throw the paper into a house that like like eats the the newspaper. Yeah say ooh this house's this house like haunted or something and then we'll we'll come back around and so we end up meeting the woman who is The architect of the smart house. Her name is sarah. We see are working in said smart house. I i was confused. Ian because i thought that we are meeting a romantic interest of sarah here at the beginning of the film. The gentleman with the the glasses. Yeah i think that seemed to be her co worker. I think she's definitely way out of that guy's league. That's what i was thinking of. Anyone would question that. Yeah so. Sarah has built this house and is this like a spec house. What is the smart house that is ultimately be the prize in a contest. This farmhouse is a house. Like no other where. There's a lot of technologically advanced things going on here so it can prepare meals for you. the walls change their download tv screens to be whatever you want to be. Wombs entire rooms transform really really interesting it very modern house and you can just say hey. I want a smoothie. And i'll make you smooth lot of smoothies in this house. Lot of smoothies in the movie people love. This might have been the height of smoothie mania. Yeah i think this is right around the time where smoothie mania was kind kind of at the top of the market there and we were switching into the blizzard. Blast that own. And i remember after the original survivor in two thousand where i remember like sue hawk was being interviewed and they asked her like like. What are you doing now after survivors like. Oh yeah. I quit trucking. And i just hope the smoothie shah smoothies this turn of the millennium. I think my height of smoothing mania. I don't think smoothies have been quite as hot since about late. Nineties early thousands. I mean who remembers orange elitist right. I mean that was just Every mall have one. There was a mall in my territory. It was literally like one of two stores. It was that and burlington. There is nothing else in the mall but julius out of business are there any that still exists today completely bankrupt have that one up or julius. I think they'd covid nineteen might have been the last last girls into dairy queen. Apparently and they do still exist. Apparently okay go fifty seven hundred stores as maybe to get the on door dash now. Yeah maybe merged with theory. Okay all right so we check back in with the ban who's working on. The kid is what is he twelve or thirteen. But he's got get rid. Yeah he's making dinner for the family and He's also multitasking. He's like entering a contest. Every five seconds to try to win the smart house. Yeah so we see him making to the noodles that appears to be some sort of tuna casserole of some sort for his family. His younger sister comes in wearing rollerblade. News like hey In the house or whatever Dad comes in through the back door of the house. Kind of thing No idea why he would come in there and you see him entering this contest. We don't really kind of have an idea of what it is but a couple of things that were sort of interesting. As far as what i noticed gave us a little bit of a hint about where this doubt. Are you a tuna casserole guy. Not at all i. I'm actually quite anti ituna. Ooh why don't apply just not really sure if you thought. Maybe they. Too many dolphins also. It's like infants like just like a a sushi. very mild. yes. That's fine. But i don't like the pungent mix with mayo like nah talking up tuna. I don't know if i'd want it like hot tuna on a casserole. Gross even talk about and very weird that like a twelve year old. This is what he's cooking for dinner. Yeah the simpler dishes like macaroni and cheese. Or maybe a soup. Yeah okay. so we're we'll find out later. That ben is really the caretaker for this family because Mom has gone. And you know a lot of children's films or young people's films tend to like often like have as a throw in part of the plot. Let a one of the parents has died unexplained. Yeah so we. We know that they're the he's he's got a single dad and yeah he's taking care of the family so this is this is common in a lot of the disney channel. La tuesday channel movies Yeah the time. So they're talking about how dad is He's gonna be working on a big project and he's got this big account The little girl says something that i felt like i was really trying it. She's like oh great. Dad now you can start dating and we can get a new mom that came to me is did you. I guess coming it sounded like talking about. I mean you went for you so that about like a dog i can say about you know a living human is a whole other sort Yeah i couldn't imagine that where we get that. The older son or ben. He does not want dad to date or like okay. Seems like that makes more sense but you know the daughter is like that ca- like what's going on here we need. We need a mom. We need some other sort of authority figure. Yeah what are you doing that. Like a step working so much get back out there and now i have to ask. I mean one of the things just immediately jumped out to me. Does this dad give you big time. Andrew savage did a quarantine interview with dalton. Ross yeah i've been reading them as they're interesting. Yeah yeah so. Yeah i could see. I could see him. Being andrew savage ask like a young andrew savage definitely. I like the tie the drescher burma. So what is the dad's business. Were you able to take that away. I sort of ascertain if he's in the sporting goods supply chain like seems to be like an account executive or something for like a a a sporting goods shop or something like that. He's taking a phone call about pets at one point. Yeah yeah definitely some kind of salesman okay. The also has the mom recently died because the dad does not seem to know how to calm the daughter's hair. I have no idea seems seems pretty reasonable. I mean only see anything in the bond is later like a home video yes like the movie makes it sound like mom has been gone for a while but it does not seem like anybody has really like that has not picked up any of the slack here since Mom's been gone. Definitely all on ben Yeah meanwhile ben is up late into the night stuffing the ballot box now. Was he breaking the rules in or were you allowed to vote as many times as you want. I did listen to this. I had to go back. Because i wanted the particulars on this contest and very clearly had a couple stipulation. One of the things. That sarah said is multiple. Entries are allowed very often. Yeah so early and often. Multiple entries are allowed in one or the other thing i noticed it said open to monroe county residents own those small segment of the population. Pretty small. cigna. I was unsure. I figured this is like a clue. As to the movies location. It looked to me. Like isn't a pretty warm ascetic right. Yeah so i looked about. Apparently there are seventeen or eighteen states. Take to that where. There's a monroe county but wikipedia says that it is monroe county. New york is the setting new york which is near rochester. I catch where it said. It was new york and it's during the school year and it is definitely earn the school year so but it's like a warm time. I mean the kids arriving shorts shorts at one point. So i mean definitely i was getting mixed by young to me like a california type thing but yeah ben is ben. Is this contest lot. Yes this the smart house shovel for you. They that was not touched on in the film. I would have math like a heated. Drying melt. laser seems really likely maybe thinks like into the ground like kind of like that you see cleaning back in his home labor. Oh that's good. Yeah so all right. We see that. Sarah is working on the final details. She has a mouse. That is i like her pet rat named butler that works with her arm. At one point the mouse will enter the smart house. I did not follow what was going on with the mouse or the rat. Yeah i didn't quite understand what the hell this was either. I noticed that the smart house had a very convenient households for some reason seen they seemingly only been living there for a couple of weeks. So how like a borough of the ice decided to to move into this hour. Yeah really unfortunate. Got an exterminator out there. You would think smart house would take care of that on its own. Yeah that would be smart house. That would be one of the things that would be like. Whoop rats detecting making cleaning the floor and pest control. What is more important. I mean got the smoothie feature but you know in yeah that show lee okay okay. So dad is coming in to ask ban. Hey are you still online. Because i need to use the phone. What of throwback this was the end. Yeah the dial up. I guess yeah i definitely notice that sure there also seem to be referenced to someone someone that he was expecting melanie. Yeah i guess. Prospective romantic partner. Clearly you saw ban Here yeah he's a real blocker this kid because he's like oh yeah she didn't sound like you're type that yeah definitely definitely a pretty rough move you would think that obviously benz got his own personal things with not wanting a new mom but i mean you got a feel for the yeah. Said he hasn't been out out in so long even notice type is so Nowadays dads would be on his phone swiping right. You know ben would have no idea. You would be on tender bamboo or or or something something like that. Perhaps okay hinge. Maybe single dad dot com or something like that. Yeah and so contest has ended okay and so smart house is going to pick out the winner and we are going to hear pat. Who is the name of the smart house personal applied technology. Voice of the house is going to pick out the winner and is going to start calling. But apparently ben fell asleep connected to the modem. That is exactly what happens now. Also go into this year ben. He apparently entered this contest. A quarter of the entries were his is what he says. So there are about eight thousand entries that means that two thousand of these entries were his now. I have the. I wanted to go ahead and just think about this. Mathematically about rochester new york house like that zillow says probably go around. I would guess four hundred thousand. He is just an estimate assessment if you will He's killed himself about one hundred thousand dollars in equity here. you know. we're going with like dom. Yeah so now. So you do have to factor in. It is nine hundred ninety nine and the real estate values of rochester new york have gone up substantially that that is that is very true but i i also think it's pretty fair because if you taking account like technological innovation that's to add a lot of value to this room true sure. What was the plan here for. Ben i mean did he think this all through of that. Okay well the house is so smart. It will be able to take care of all these household chores. And i'll be able to go live my life and we won't need to have a replacement mom you know you would think that but it doesn't seem like there was any sort of follow through. There just seems like a cool house. Yeah i mean very very bizarre to me doesn't seem like he made any sort of major changes artists. His lifestyle goes other than just having the schoolhouse. now you would think that they would just sell their own house. And then i mean this a huge win windfall sell the old house. They just moved into this house. Well we have a fallback. Just move into the own house. If you don't want it you can just Here's here's a free house. Yes pretty much take. What are they gonna airbnb. The old place. I mean that would be via event. Maybe they were invented earlier on. Maybe do you think that there was not a lot of interest from other people in being in the contest because a lot of people were probably afraid of y two happening and the whole house would be worthless makes sense. Apparently there were six thousand other entries though so rochester. You not exactly a big and certainly. Yeah there i went to school. Upstate new york. That's right that's right. Yeah of people to us suite of state university and were from the rochester area but none of the mentioned the smart house in nineteen ninety. Nine i mean. I don't know i think this survivors have but not really comes to mind. I guess allies went to syracuse right. She went to syracuse. Yeah but he may have seen the smart house Yeah maybe pat. Cusak might be the survivor player. Closest do that area. That is possible anyway. So they still. They can't even get a of the family because the next morning a they all oversleep and out the door and the phone is ringing. God just let the machine get it and the machine. I must have been calling to say but somehow they get an article in the newspaper in yes. Apparently he is the only person that has no idea that he won the smart house and his classmates all congratulate him on on winning this. Yeah he goes the classroom and then everybody is clapping but not before he runs into a bully bullies named ryan and he wants to know. Hey where is my science report in. Did you ever even anecdotally here about this happening. In real life. Anybody where the the school bully was getting their assignments done by somebody else. Yes and it was. I guess you had to. You actually had to do else's assignments. I mean it wasn't so much like i would do them from scratch right but i remember like there were times where it's like. Hey you answers. Or i'm gonna be sure that you you know like you know the answer to a test or like like that. No copy copies the homework in like sixth grade. Action actually got in trouble for doing it. Which was kind of funny i remember. I like social studies. Or something. And i remember i got. We had to go to the principal's office were sheeting academic dishonesty and they called home in. When i went back home my mom and dad relax shaking their head and said you know only you get in trouble for cheating because you're giving someone else the answers. Yeah that's not really fair to the kids where you know. If i found out that my son was like there was a bully that was like hey like immediate answers to the past. Or i'll beat you up like i don't have to like that's not right that the school they can't protect my kid. And then my kids getting in trouble because the bully is is Has has them under duress i. It doesn't make any sense to me. I mean i noticed. He slammed another kid literally into a lock. Then i always. I know this was like a common trope but has anybody ever do. People fit in lockers. I mean that seems to me. i've tried like. I don't think i could get in one if i was louis. Frying appre sleigh frame. So i never seen a locker big enough to fit a person into now. Definitely not maybe. Do you think that this was happening. So much. like in the fifties and sixties that they have to just make the lockers a lot thinner. Yeah i think that's probably what happened. It's pretty common. Where i when i was in school. It would be like a a half a full body length like there's no chance never any walker about about okay so all right we have a press conference and they are announcing okay. Here's the cooper family. They are the winners of the smart house and she is going to learn on the job. Do anything except for miming in thank goodness no mining. Now actually i do want to bring up one thing about the bully before we move on. Yeah did did you notice. I mean isn't just Like all all school bullies in the late. Nineteen ninety s. Just have like some sort of consortium where they all agree on their earth style. it had to be spiky. it had to be very gelled. And then they're sensitive russes. Well it seems like they always wear baggy clothes. Lots of black. Lots of red and spiky hair. Yeah maybe you want to signal to other people. Hey i'm the bully the bullied at school and it. Yeah exactly it's me i. Maybe i noticed like spike callers on trope is well i dunno. I thought that was kind of a weird. Yes i mean but that is the default bully attire. So it doesn't seem to two out of place here. I mean definitely not okay so the family gets gets to move in and the first thing they're going to do is like all right little girl. Stick your hands into the sensor reading so that we can get a scan of you but it's not just going to be a hand scan. It's also going to then like take a small like a blood sample that you are not prepared for yeah. They referred to it as bite. Yeah just a little. Apparently just in the blood sample it was able to all her entire medical history Yes okay know is is. That's a hippo violation. Probably probably sell certainly wasn't made aware of the fact. That was going to happen so so i felt that they should have at least told her it was coming. Yeah definitely some kind of fair warning would have been. I mean that girls primarily fifth grade ten. Yeah they call it. It was a microscopic blood and tissue sample that they did so he's got yes okay and then so the dad is well like That's really amazing. And here is that moment in the film where that that really changed life. Impressive from the thing about pat is the more time she spends with you the more she learned so before long. She's going to know more about you than you know yourself. That's kind of creepy isn't it. I mean it's like big brother is watching you. Only big brother turns out to be your house. Well she's not interested in. Judging you or spying. On you. Mr cooper she nick nick she she just wants to understand you better so she can make have it. Yeah i mean this and that's why we're here. That's why. I think this is just a very appropriate movie to go for yeah. I didn't know the dad's name was nick. I didn't catch either. I always referred to him. As mr cooper like i know you know. I'd always make references to popular culture. I would teach. And i remember. I had something like a problem. Where referred to mr cooper avenue. Be smart house in the first year. That i like thousand fourteen. Everyone knew what i was talking about. Was there nobody had ever heard of or even worse. Okay but now it's coming back now. It's coming back now okay. So you mentioned in the smart house. There are walls that are screens where that this is like almost like a if you are familiar with star trek. It's like the holiday. I watched a documentary. The other day about how they make the mandalorian like this is like where they shoot the mandalorian. Basically they just have like three hundred sixty degrees screen where they can just like put whatever background they want to be able to show anything at but it also like can make you like have the effect of being in these places like if you go and you are in an ocean room. You're getting misted with by a drop. let's i you. You could skip that. Yeah i definitely you know i actually. I don't know where. I got this from but i had four sure for sure. Read somewhere at some point that the The the inspiration for these walls that were actually. Tv screens was from ray raspberries if you want Yeah i definitely read that yes years ago. Yes that does sound. Very familiar had multiple screens at the house. And so you can put different things on. What would you have on your screen in who. That's pretty interesting. I think for me. I would probably want some sort of a surprise good backgammon game you know whoever's playing i definitely to watch and comment little bit punditry as far back him and goes my heart so this wind generators in the house. Yeah i mean. I definitely noticed this as well. I just just things like seems like almost trap doors. We see a scene where canas falls fall out onto dab definitely definitely model very weird out of place things here so they go into the kitchen. Pat can also like analyze your complete like like of bio system. I've niamh do not have the right terminology. Sibusiso you like. What nutrients you are lacking right and actually. I noticed that the terminology that they used was that the kitchen has instant- breathalyzers. Yes so that probably would not have been a good place for me to land. When i was in college. Reveal to tell you exactly what was going on and also you can order things and they just show up and the daughter. She orders a strawberry shake which smoothie right which pops up like instantly from beneath the countertop. Yeah and what has to really wonder how this is being made at me. it's it's almost. Like is other gnomes in the counter. Perhaps or are these so this is a really good question that i had as well. And there's going to be a scene later on in the film where their order a banana orange smoothie and oranges like five thousand oranges just explode from. Is there like a one. Is somebody coming in with like a grocery delivery and restocking pat to be able to produce anything. Because you gotta use those oranges. Quick oranges are going to have like an infinite shelf. Life is pat ordering things or is it like in star trek. Is there some sort of like a replicator which is almost like a three d. printer of food. I was about to say three d per that seems pretty pretty reasonable for sure i mean predates the the main technology but again a lot of the stuff in his house does so who knows maybe rather than spending your time making smart houses. She should have gotten a patent on prem mental. Yeah why are they solving world hunger. If that's the case selfishness like no give it all the way to this family. These three people. They're going to get it. All you can be sending like like pat. I need a thousand loaves of bread to feed the hungry of rochester man. Yeah so we have a major disaster with these strawberry smoothie ian knocked over and they said no. Just watch this. The floor absorbs the strawberry shake. That was gross disgusting. I mean i can only imagine how that would smell after like maybe two days three days. Especially because you know by all indications we have a warm weather time. I mean that's gonna just like gary after a while so you don't think that it gets flushed into like the sewage like the taken out of the house. I mean that's a very good possibility but simultaneously. I don't really know i mean then. The entire house. small switch. Well i feel like it's like it's like flushing the toilet. I feel like that goes into the plumbing. Now i mean it's under the entire floor rob Yeah so you don't think you could have siphoned into like another like waste system. I mean maybe it seems like i've a stretch. I guess everything else is very plausible. Here all right so we see the family's gonna move in there they they they love it and we get like a whole montage of everybody enjoying living in the house. Yeah the kids are getting up early. I'm getting woken up by basketball games on. Dad had a rooster and this is a little bit like the big brother house. We have unique. Wake up calls. Yeah music morning. The canadian one likes to make like other noises go don't get a bad like chainsaws and stuff like that very very. What would you have is your ideal wakeup call you. Well that would man. What would be well. You know i. I always like big brother house. Good morning house. it's time to get up for the day. Nothing like don woman's voice in the morning. And i know actually it's kinda funny right after my original season I had a track that would play that and then play two songs there randomly chosen from a list and then my brain was permanently. Messed up probably for a while. Because i kept waking up in the same way as i did now. Did you program that. Could you build a smart house. I wouldn't doubt it doesn't seem like it would be that hard. Wow would you give it away now. now. I'd keep it for but is your house that you are in right now very smart. No i'm not really a could. I mean i could. I'm a pretty simple man. Not someone who really needs a ton of that going on Okay all right so we are also starting to get a hint. Dad has a thing for sarah the inventor of the smart house definitely. I mean it makes total sense. I mean she's definitely very attractive woman. Yeah sure definitely house. Dad's flirt game. You think he was pretty good on good. I mean it's a little bit up front a little bit up front. I will say that. It's pretty obvious. Daughter picks up sas seems to have a bad track record with men She talks about her former suitors included. Like what like a bank robber burglar. Forget exactly likes the bad boy. Yeah definitely definitely was. Yeah definitely a board. Were bank robber criminals and it seemed like mentioned later in the movie. I mean she brings it up. She's like well. I mean you're not a bank robber. So do you think that. Sarah will get bored with mr cooper entirely possible. These sports sporting good supply chain management. Married doing it could be than new mom to his. Two kids barron gorge. She's used to like the fast paced life of smart house building. Yeah absolute lambing not to mention. I mean who knows. How many of these main was she involved in any of these bank robberies like to maybe have like some sort of clues hard to not realize that you were dating someone who's just really finance the smart house you know i made choose an accessory seemed to me. That's the other thing i don't get. Why like what is this. I mean is this a promotion contest. They making a bunch of smart houses. Yup i just never really understood is yet to advertise. Because she said her next project was as smart office Yeah i think the whole smart house project was the scam where basically like they get. You live there but then it also like they steal all your personal information and then sell it through different people so you live there for free. Learns everything about you but then also it's like facebook. You are the product they have breakfast. It knows everything about them. The dad is like drinking five. I always pay attention to coffee. Stuff that is like oh is this mocha walnut. Like oh my favorite. That's not a coffee mocha walnut. I mean definitely a little bit of an odd mix. I mean this predates cure crate yet. This morning i had one. That was collusively. But that's a flavor. That's a flavour of coffee. I mean there has to be. I mean you're telling me that. No one has ever had a mocha. I'm going to google mobile walnut coffee and see if smart house is. The first result of home mocha walnut. Pie crack. nobody has a mocha walnut. Comedy bite like if you're on kito ya see that. Some browns but nobody. Nobody has ever made walnut coffee. Yeah i think you're right on this. I in fact the f. Twenty nine hits if you put it in a very very bizarre. You're right on that. I figured somebody would have no. Walnut is not a coffee flavor. I mean here. I see black walnut. Coffee dreaming black walnut. Hank coffees and walnut street. Kolya black black black walnut coffee is one result for that but yeah that everything else is literally walnut coffee table. Go figure mocha. It's maybe not a coffee. Drinker was the writer of this film. So also patches turnout out pancakes again. I don't really know how pets doing it. But everybody's pumped up about breakfast. Yeah i mean it must have been really good. The kids said that their lunches regret to apparently a fantastic caroni. Jeez got to. Pat is also doing the homework for the bully also. Yeah i noticed that. That was definitely something i mean. That's good. it's a time saver. But i mean definitely a one. What does it do print out the homework with like the handwriting oud. That actually makes a lot of sense. That i noticed earlier in the movie was a science reports that seemed to me like something that would probably be tightened up like a word document and then print out not necessarily a hand written good though foley for whatever reason yes a lot of projects. It's not like it's like the one home sound like the one you'd take home the next day. Now it's the ones where you have a lotta time to do. What's going on here. Do you think that maybe the bully is in some sort of like advanced program that that that was what i was thinking. Eighth grader definitely. A lot of project based learning here very ahead of its time in the late nineties. We'll be right back with ian to talk more about the smart house. But how do you turn your home into a smart house.

Let's talk about the impact on the social life of ben here having a smart house because all the sudden then we take kind of loser beforehand. More nobody than a loser. Yeah kinda into the mix. Yeah he's definitely planned the under the radar you know. Hibernating strategy accurately. Oh that's the kid. Yeah his mom died like yeah exactly not. He seems to have a couple friends. I didn't catch their names Yeah and now. All of a sudden there are women at the school paying attention to him. Young women yeah no. I thought this was a little bit odd. I mean just because he he got this house. I mean you're in eighth grade. I mean it's not like you're the whole whole sugar. Bat and sugar baby thing is not really quite in play yet so that was a little bit odd but these young women they wanna come over and check out. The smart house is my god. The goddess of eighth grade just talked to you. Yeah gwen when petrone was. Apparently her name is gwen. Wants to check out the smart house very interesting. She's not acted since twenty seventeen. Gwen wonder what happened. There by looks like she's an actress named raquel racale bodine of the actors from smart house other than katie. Seagal went onto a really a lot of great heights. Any of these actors or actresses again in anything other than disney channel original. yeah Been the main actor that he he went onto work he he has a career is working in stuff. Yeah i have his up now. Let's see the daughter is out of acting. She has an institute. Yeah final destination. three smallville. bet Yeah career. Yes the same thing for Dad for nick nick cooper. He worked really all you can hope for. Yeah yeah yeah. That's that's gonna say this guy. Think he was not sure i think he was also the lead or the best friend in the the luck of the irish which is a the other disney channel original movie earlier. I mean that's actually pretty good because those those are considered to the top your wants from yeah definitely not the worst. I mean it quits or quints. That's the worst i think. That's what set about five babies added gas. Yeah quince quicksand. I think people probably would take cadet. Kelly was pretty bad and melons starred. hilary duff kelly. Some girl that ends up having to go to military. Remember right yeah. That was not very good. Wasn't exactly the target demo that one. Though the even stevens movie i thought was a kind of got kind of kind of went off the deep end towards the end. Pretty reasonable little little steven's sitcom had child And it was a sitcom about a brother and sister that were seventh and ninth grade. I was a was the lead actresses name something romero christie Chris carlson romero. i think. Not sure yeah but Yeah she was at and they will be they win a vacation of sorts and then it turns out there on a survivor esque reality right where it's actually a prank on them like a reality show where they are stranded on an island. This is even stevens yet. The even stevens movie yes. It also served as the series finale for the com. Oh okay so. Even stevens was a tv show and then it became a movie. Yeah so basically. I don't know if you this thing. Disney channel around the in the ninety s and early two thousands. They had a role that no show could produce more than sixty five episodes. Why would happen her syndication. No matter how successful it was they would not make more than sixty five episodes of any show and the reason was that it would. They could air one episode of day for thirteen weeks and by making new shows all the time. Then it would just increase the likelihood that a random viewer would find something that they liked so when even stevenson sixty five episodes they wanted to give it a sendoff was popular shell so they capped it off the even stevens movie. They eventually find a loophole to this where they took the same characters from a show and then just made a spin off. That was literally the same thing but different theme. Okay all right. So dad is working from home. He's on a call that they've got the dog chasing like a tennis ball around the house. If i was like. Hey pat could you take this to another room on the phone here. Stop making the golden retriever bark in the same room as me. Yeah he said that his productivity was way up. But i would think that's extract. Yeah so pat seems to want dad to continue to work from home. I mean apparently it was much more efficient for him because the the c r and that he seemed to be using her better detailed and more organized than the one at his office so apparently whatever whatever smart house is doing. You know it's it's a producing a better europe. than sap which. I mean that. That's just unbelievable anytime that could do that. It's a no brainer. now i mean. That's they really should be should be doing that. She's working on smart office. Sap you're you're pretty much. Gold smile is line. Smart office i think is an interesting concept because this is just really increase productivity but it also gets gets rid of a lot of jobs. could be bad for the economy knock. Great not going okay. So once the smart office just takes over. That's when we gotta get universal basic income figured out because then let let pat do all the office work and then everybody could just be sitting sitting at home watching stuff on their wall screens yang. Okay so lunchtime. And how about a banana. Orange smoothie banana orange smoothie does not like a smoothie. I would go to one of my top ten smoothies. Now it's weird mix And i the orange smoothie. They seem to be going for this one. They don't they really don't lend themselves that while the smoothies from from my experience oranges yet is the you know that like you know how they like. Qr that bill. Moma's i've done. Whereas some as i feel like i'm getting call let me go into you know jamba juice and let me let me get something with like five oranges. Yeah that's pretty popular as far as these evening. A new heights. Moods i guess. All of the sudden unexplained food system in the house is has gone totally haywire and they are just being pelted with hundreds of oranges a lot of oranges. I mean at least fifty really going all over the place everywhere all over and looks like that. You know ben is having some fun but you know you have a machine throwing oranges at you. Sort of like a like a tennis ball launching. This is not ideal surprised. Most the break definitely definitely not good. I mean we see a little bit of mass. But i mean it definitely went about as better better than you could have expected it to given an elting situation. Now i noticed. Data here is we'll just have to call up sarah and get this fixed and then kind of just take no no dad. It's just one thing. We just won't order smoothies anymore. Listen get like. Did you see what just happened here like get. I don't like her get her over here. We're going to have her look at this. So smart houses going to hell in handbasket. He says now we deal. We don't need smoothies at is truth. I mean that's true. I mean the last time you made a a smoothie in your home so now i do make a lot of. I wouldn't see. I wouldn't really call it a smoothie though like i like i take like a protein shake but i put a put a banana and i froze frozen strawberry shores that a smoothie now am ice movie guy aerosmith guy would say you're making these or something like that. Yeah i've got like. I used to have the magic bullet and then i got i got for christmas. I got like the ninja blender. You a smoky guy. More protein shakes protein. But is there fruit. There is a is a protein shake a smoothie or only. If there's us i think if it has fruit bats when you go into smoothie territory but i mean i. I usually doing like peanut butter and just like the dust right. It's on smoothie. I think until you put fruit in it. Yes that's more of a shake string banana shake and a banana smoothie Get the same thing trigger content. Perhaps i don't think so. I don't think that. Gd to fruits for smoothie. I mean it implies smoothness the blending make it a frappe now. That's more ice my very difficult here. That involves coffee. Okay not mocha walnut for sure. All right so sarah's going to come over and check it out and she's going to stay for dinner on cape cod night boy. This was a reach for theme dinner. It's like night to where onto cape cod. They have like the lobster. The on wall had a very nice like appear at lighthouse Feels like we're back on cake. Cape cod and ben is horrible to sarah at dinner. They're talking about how sarah she invented this a whole thing like oh a so. You're a genius I guess you must make everybody around. You feel inferior actually. Took notes on this yes. The line was genius are impossible to live with and man you know. This explains just so much about why. The sofa game is such a struggle for me and that is the hardest part for sure. And i just didn't come up with that one. Yeah people that ben was was very very mean to sarah. Yeah definitely i mean. He stormed off to. Yeah i have in my notes. Ben is being a k. Absolutely yeah okay so we hear about oh. I have a rat butler. Yeah apparently some sort of reference to popular culture which. I was not aware. Okay okay. it was missed on me. Let's see a moving up rat butler joke. Okay okay this so wow. This is a real stretch okay. So i'm looking up. This is from a list on bustle published in two thousand sixteen twenty two things. I noticed when i watched smart house and so when they talk about the rats name that i finally understood. Sarah the rats name her name is the name is butler rat. Butler like the actor from gone with the wind rhett butler. That is a reach. And a half sarah the biggest stretch. I have ever heard even if you told me like. You're gonna probably is more familiar with the actor from gone with the wind. I mean i. I don't even think i'd make that connection. So that is that is just horrible Yeah it's a rat end it's a butler rat rat butler butler okay. So that's wild. I was hoping like. I'm like i don't want to stay on the podcast because i don't want people to make fun of me. I don't even know this obvious thing. But what is a rat rat butler. I had no idea until just now lifted up last night. Ben is fortunate. That dad is not more ill-tempered Because from my own childhood That i don't think that my dad would have been this cool about this. Yeah i mean. I don't think i would have been terribly reasonable thinking. Maybe maybe dad empathize a little bit with band because something the whole thing was mom i it stuff. A little bit sticky. Yeah yeah yeah But really if You know that that was really cool about this Ben is being horrible. And you know. I i i would. Even if i was the debt i would not taken. This is well that was pretty rude giner behavior and then the daughter. She has no chill either because she's like. Oh yeah. Ben hates every girl. My dad's starts polite. Expose i mean i have to imagine she was picking up. Yes there's no question about it but she just puts it right out there so we go from this where you know dad is starting to. He's heard the story now from the sister about the reason why ben doesn't play basketball anymore because he has everything around the house. So you don't feel like you need to date a mom. It's not like that. Dad has any like romantic interest. It's like well. Like i need to find a wife to do some of this housework. Yeah i thought that was kind of interesting that she said that because when they moved into the white house he doesn't try out for the basketball team so i think he was just making excuses. Yeah i think so too. The thing i noticed is that i mean if you compare him in size to the bully right who presumably there are at least the same age right. 'cause he's able to do the bullies how to be in the eighth grade. The bali is of the height. That i would expect would go for the basketball team but then seems to be at least a good head short Yeah that's probably benz making some excuses. I i do think so. But then sneaks in the middle of the night. He gets a drill. Any opens the control panel and goes into first of that seems very impractical. That the there's like no access to the control panel of like where pat is set up like there's nothing they can't just have like a door on it You could you imagine you live in this house and you can't even get into the control room. And then so he goes in there and then he starts like reprogramming everything and says like here. Watch nick at nite. You'll learn how to be a mom from watch the one thousand nine hundred fifty sitcoms and pay attention to the mom and learn everything. Yeah it was like a throwback nick at nite sort of say they call it. The mon- marathon took note of the three. Sorry four shows. And i wanted to ask you okay. So there's mother knows best. Yes which we know is obviously just a parody of other news back yes my three moms. Yes which of my signed yes. This is the these the last two though are really out there. Got make room for mama okay. So there's make room for daddy okay. That's what that is i I was thinking mama like especially the way it's spelled it's m. o. m. a. this is about a mother who is very large very large. Use them all. I mean we'll grow very big later on. And then lastly is noah's matriarch noah's matriarch that one i i do not know i mean the one i think that's just a pun on noah's ark of the rap butler of what this show and be like to is that what it is or is it about noah's wife where she is like Enough with these animals. Yeah exactly this claes's a pig sty literally. Someone needs to get on this and may make an actual show called noah's matriarch sitcom based on. It didn't have children. I was not among the backstory to brush up on my bible studies to be able to tell you that in so that we have pat is completely reprogram. now at this point yes completely and watches from all of the videos about What what it takes to be a mom. I don't know necessarily if the the film. Smart house or ben in this film really has done his research of like what what an ideal mom traits are and where they captured in nineteen fifty sitcoms. Almost certainly not. Yeah i mean the the nutrition tap window. They're getting chocolate cupcakes in their lunch. Now and but also the other thing i thought was on washington one thousand nine hundred sitcoms right but the new lawn seems to be a lot more spunky a lot more a lot more like fun right. I mean she's we'll get into this. But i mean the whole party thing coming up yeah Definitely not strict. You expecting one thousand nine hundred fifty s mother to be very very strict. Curbs yeah. I don't know what the tropes were. A lot of these shows weather like the mom was like trying to have in parties for the kids and the dad was like more strict. That might have been it. I don't remember that. I watched a lotta leave it to beaver and definitely. Don't remember that name something. Billingsley j. billingsley. No no no one from survivor thailand. That's not had the wrong name. Yeah def definitely was not definitely was not rome parties all the time. Okay so the next morning. Pats definitely different. Have some breakfast getting some cupcakes. like okay. like she's like come on. Kids need to have some fun. The cases nutrition all the time right and she says loosen up or lighten up down or something. Yeah can see the new attitude. See the new attitude. But i they did not get the homework for the bully and then we cut back to later on the day Ben has come home with a black eye and then so to treat this of black. Is this contusion. An hat tries to generate like a like a t. bone steak. A dad is like what a stake. Nobody's done that since the fifties and obviously this came up one of the sitcoms. I guess so. Yeah later on. They're eating steak. Is this the same stake. I hope not. i hope not. I did catch that though. I have that in my notes Yeah thank on demand which is pretty good In if you've got a black guy would you put a t. bone steak on your face now now definitely not. I would go with the more traditional. Act ver- bag of frozen peas. That's that's pretty reasonable. That's a good one. Yes contact because i kind of feel like you know and i don't know if it's semi nella chicken i feel like the handling of the raw meat. I feel like that's like a mucous membrane right. Yeah i don i know. I'm not exactly sure how it works. And i definitely remember throwing it way back to like amazing race five. There is a task where they had the carry. A slab of meat and one of the contestants did not have gloves on and said she would get mad. Cow disease by touching. It is obviously not correct. Yeah so all right. The mom is not happy about the. I'm sorry i pat is not happy about this hat neth like what. How could he do this. I can't believe it. Let me add this kid. Yeah definitely getting pretty defensive here but she has a plan Okay now things get a little dark here in We see ben going into his room and he watches like a vhs. Tape of his original mom is making some cookies and then singing the mockingbird song. Yeah definitely this own video or rec- issues like baking cookies with ben and then the little sister is a baby you know you also see from this video. That has sarah. They look very similar. Oh interesting they're very very much the same type. Yeah well later. On in the film that i thought would like when when pat it becomes like a takes physical form like when they win. Pat sorta come together like like is pat going to appear as the original mom to the kids like dark dark that much like exactly like case all on married with children housewife. Did you ever watch married with children. One of my favorite shows. Oh really big fan. I mean the episode. Were they move into the grocery store. It's a two parter. Money doesn't get any better than that. It's one of those. Things i like randomly will see it on. Tv i don't really watch a lot of tv nowadays. But when i was watching a lot seabees will be syndicated. Some reason every single time like happened to catch it would be the episode where they move into the grocery store I do not recall a lot of married with children. Arc's yeah not not a lot of a lot of two part episodes but there are some. I can think of a few in the grocery store. One is one. There's another one where they go on a road trip and then like end up stranded. Nearly a minor prospectors shock old general store or one where they go on a cruise for weight loss the shipwrecks and they get stranded on a life raft with godfrey. Oh were you a steve guy or were you a jefferson guy. Jefferson for sure. Jefferson was a really funny character. Really fun so let's see okay. Dad is going to call up. Sarah and that he's doing like video calling with her and like nine hundred ninety nine. Look at this. yeah. I mean smart house. Yeah and so. He is like asking her about like she's like bouncing her checkbook and she's just like bursley. Hey are you trying to ask me. How like she's really picking up Maybe i guess after the daughter completely revealed is crush. Yeah total totally just you know. Exposed him out there some in area man this point. It's obvious Yeah okay so dad. And sarah are going to go on a date and They're gonna finally. It's going to be dad's night out pat wool. Watch the kids. Yeah and this is where we kinda see the plan come together and what. She has in store for orion schoolboy. Yeah okay so. Pat has accessed the email list as she realizes. Okay that Ryan needs a little more fun in his life. Yes fun okay. What's fun so she does like a search and she finds like a fun is like what people are doing on. Mtv they're partying and dancing. That's what we need to do at the smart house. Arguing young people dancing. I noticed here. This was mpc. The music harding channel. Yeah now this must be back on. They actually showed music videos on. Mtc sure he say. I mean nowadays. What do you think. Mp see i'm gonna go ahead and guess that it's one episode of the challenge for a week and then ridiculousness ninety nine percent a year the other time. I think. Probably a lot of like Prank shows from People that are on the jersey shore that now are pranksters. Yeah exactly some sort of maybe. Maybe there appear where they have like a an ashton couture based frank show. Perhaps something like that. I was trying to keep up with the challenge this season. And then the most frustrating thing about the challenge i found was that every commercial break. It was the exact same commercials every single time through now. I watch the challenge. When i was younger. And i'm sure that it's a great show If it weren't for hall brawl. I would just balk sixty pounds. I love to play games for money. Yeah i mean. I do remember that. It was always the same exact ads over and over like like teen mom. Then it goes then goes ready to vinnie and polio pranksters and then it goes into like the same like four commercials like over and over and over again. Yeah that sounds about right Okay all right so everybody gets an email party at the smart house. Meanwhile dad is trying to say like what ty should i wear. Yeah the kids went through a polkadot. One I like i like the floor pattern highs on saw from this past season. I love a good floral tie. You and i think that's overdoing it. I think the go with a suit and tie to go take out. Sarah i mean what is she a client. I mean is this. This is a third date as well. This is the first eight i mean. You don't count the cape cod. I mean that wasn't a day. That was a service. Call kind of the gray area since the second date. i mean. that's a little fast. I think little to form i mean. Look i don't think these bank robbers were wearing suits to go on. Maybe like hey. I'm not that kind of guy. Maybe yeah that's that's exactly it trying to trying to show her. He's not going to try to business. Dad rob the bank. Afridi's andrew savage all right so the kids are playing miniature golf also in the house which. I don't really understand how this was working like. i do. Have these things where you can hit a golf ball and then you drive it now but it not seem like it was working that same way. I mean it seemed to me. Just from just from what i saw like you hit the ball and they would make contact wall and however whatever angle it hits it out in the speed it calculates it and then you see it on this yet but that wasn't what was happening now. It looks like they have like a club in just research swinging. it suppose. Yeah what was happening was like if there was like a tv. That was showing you a miniature golf course and you were just hitting golf balls at it. Yes okay so everybody's showing up for the party. Everybody's coming in. Yeah actually no actually. That's all right. The first is to friends come in and they are there for the party and that there is a great scene here in iconic scene earn. Now i play. I play a clip Here here's a clip from the bed in his two friends who go full boy band here. How about activating some kickback. Video screens video screens. I n sinker backstreet boys or something. I'm not sure what they had the rights to. Its yeah i or or was it some facsimile maybe maybe one i have no idea honestly look into it i do. I do also remember though right around the same time that disney would you need concert spectacles. Or it's like a two hour special of some whatever you know whatever the the bubblegum pop group of the day was Would would put on a concert in full Aired on the disney channel. So it probably was end sinker backstreet boys. I don't recognize the rights to okay so the kids. The three guys do like a whole routine i. It's pretty random. Know what the wax street boys don't know Yeah that was pretty weird. I mean i guess the disney channel movie half as some sort of dancing aspects to it perhaps no clue. I mean the three guys do not perform at the party. No they just do when it's just them there. Yeah very straight. yeah okay. So meanwhile we see that. The sister is a bouncer at the party. Now yeah so two girls try to get in. Apparently they are not on the list and remark. It's harder to get into so and so's mitzvah Yeah listen listen sister. Let let me tell you something like all right like all the eighth grade. Girls are on the list. You know that To eighth grade girls show up zero guys. They're they're in yeah. I thought this was a little bit odd. I mean i you know you're not gonna turn away any any women that try to enter the. Yeah you want us to be a good party. I wanted to be the sausage then. Then band is like You know taking these women around the party and you want some food and they're like looking for something sweet and what a line he gives when he says. Oh yeah than me or something like that. Yeah very smooth very smooth. A newfound confidence has come to ben with this house. Where's the old ben not here. Not here not here. He's got smart house confidence. Okay now the bully and the bully he gets right in yeah. He's on the list which the sister was like. I don't think ben would want you here anyway. I don't know he's on the list. I have a crush on him. That was a little odd Yeah so yeah go come on come on in right in my okay gets into the party. Meanwhile we're seeing the party is like really picking up. A pat finally wants to teach ryan the bully a lesson. Yeah he gets his comments. Here vibe yeah so talk me through this. What does pat due to the bully. She liked puts us spotlight on them and starts talking about him and then starts to crack a few jokes at his expense shocks him. It looks like a lightning bolt. Emily comes out or something. Yeah and then like chases him around with a holographic skull early burns are and then has like some sort of like doc like tentacles also that like push him out the door same arm. That gets the newspaper right. Yeah so do you think that ryan's parents will sue is any physical harm. Perhaps emotional very very strange. I don't think you could get away with this nowadays. No i don't think so. You mean in the movie or if you had a smart house if you had a smart house yeah you would think that maybe ben is going to get beat up even worse at school on monday. no no because now ryan knows but it'd be just never go to his house though. Smart house has to have other plans. I wouldn't mess with ben after that. One yeah meanwhile how about this. Dad took a wild night for sarah. It sounds like this is the second location that they've gone to right. They went for like drinks. One place had dinner this place and now they're off to a third location for dessert. Again i mean for a for a first date out. I mean it seems to be going really well but the tide seems like too much but you know. Maybe the nineties time. Yeah jesus dad. I mean three locations. She says okay. Well i just want something sweet. I want chocolate now. We know where ben gets it from. Because he's like. Oh okay this he take a hershey's kiss out of his pocket and give it to her I didn't catch that at all. Yeah he's like your wish is my command. He gives her a hershey's kiss that. I don't want chocolate that you had in your pocket. I think i'd i'd i didn't catch it but it's a little bit weird. I don't like the kiss from the from. That area will be close to dad. Then yeah the the smoot sean. Sarah kill pretty good day. Yeah i guess so. The bank robber not a bank robber but okay now the ranger is going on. But it's ten twenty. Three dad's gonna be home at ten thirty. I don't know how. Dad hit three locations. It's gonna be home by ten thirty. It's happening must have been an early dinner. I mean prying early words. Perhaps maybe okay so they get all the kids out and pat says okay kids quick get all debris on the floor everything on the floor so they just dumped the snacks the candy everything just right on there and and the houses vacuum floor system doesn't yeah except for one thing they forgot one thing. Dad comes home and realizes that is this a girl's jacket that he finds it seemed to me based on the context clues. I think it was like her. So jacket or scarf or something at all. How is tonight at home. And he bent sitting there he goes smooth as many sees the cnn's acura wavering silk. And then the dad sees. It is like what the hell is that. Yeah how did they get busted from like. Oh yeah this girl's jacket here. You must have had a party. Yeah i didn't quite get that. Either i mean they must have been pretty forthcoming with the details. Suppose i mean 'cause you would think that a being on a plant does not necessarily indicate a huge hard. Yeah it's like. oh yeah. The girl came over. I mean but i also think about it if you're fourteen years old which is worse if you're trying to explain to your had a huge party or one girl came over. I'm not sure. I think they imply different things. And i wouldn't want. I would not wanna have to explain that one. I think i had seventy kids over is worse. That seems about right Yeah so all right but it's the next morning there's really not a lot of ramifications from this big party. That's not that man he doesn't he seems more about it. Pat y- pat. How could you do this. How could you. I trusted you. Well you said you wanted them to fund not like this pat not like this. She agreed to get strict. Okay all right. So it's the next morning. And now all of a sudden ben has made a stylistic fashion choice that he's going to like have like his pants very low and had says hey. Pull up your shorts. And he says no and so. She like zaps him when he goes to the door. You know i mean this was obviously the time went sagging still thing for it took it took a long time for that fad die die. I remember that probably started with what Criss cross in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine ruin to about like oh six or seven. Yeah well yeah so but not in. Pat's house yeah now. No sag morale So finally okay. Then pulls up his pants he goes out the door. Dad is on the phone. And now i really had is going even more haywire will not let him call sarah. Yeah i mean. She's pretty protective of dad. There which is long. Why does she want to be married to dad. She definitely wanted to be. The mom clear. Did did pat have have a thing for him yeah is really going haywire. The daughter she's watching cartoons and then she changes the cartoons to like some show about amoeba. Yeah it's like a biology discovery channel sort of show. I don't know what cartoon atlas i tried to. I d it couldn't recognize it. Yup very strange and then notices that the daughter has like a ninety eight point seven temperature and then wants to put the daughter to bed and possibly keep her home from school to which the objects because early have big fueled trip to the law alarm. Yes okay. that's a very exciting trip. All the kids wanna go and here the the llamas lamps. Perhaps tony watchos making an appearance. Perhaps llama farm sounds terrible. Awful field trip i mean. What's the educational value their llamas spit disgusting disgusting Yeah i would pretend i was sick. I wouldn't have to go to the llama farm. That's not one that i would go to Yeah okay so they have to put the daughter to bed. And then meanwhile we're also going to get some chicken soup delivered and orange juice Yeah unlimited oranges for. Perhaps you got the smoothie thing fixed it dismal somehow and really. We're at a point where pat is doing. Whatever she wants. That ben wants to read in bed. She's turning the light off he's going back and forth. Yeah definitely wanted to finish up his comic book or whatever it was that she's definitely getting pretty overbearing. This okay so everybody's had it. They bring sarah sarah's going to shut the whole system down that's it no more pat and now it seems to work for at least a little while a little system. Override yeah so that works for a little bit but boy this nick and sarah they cannot keep their hand actually how many winners a war names do we have in this show We've got ben next. Sarah was the daughter's name. Angie fortunately no yeah we got pat. That's it those are basically the principles. Yeah is the main ones. There was out ryan. That was the first booth on your season right. No yes we've unfortunately no okay. So dad and sarah like they're making dinner again and they're just going to start making out while they're cooking dinner. Definitely a pretty risque for a disney film And sarah who needs pat anyhow. Look at us we're making stakes for the whole family. I was horrified. That they like Gave this eight year old girl like a like. Here's a t. bone steak for you. Little girl yeah. i mean. it's definitely her big serving size. That's a bit much. But i will say the stakes did look good. But it's a little kid she's gonna choke me. I don't know how it's probably ten. I mean it's. She's probably eight to ten the brothers in eighth grade. You seem to be able to pick up on social cues than an eight year old. Maybe otherwise like. Would you know that the dad had eight year old is going to pick up on us. So if i had to guess I don't think she was in sixth grade. That girl and he bit. I mean i think basically. She was rollerblading Owners skills were far on yeah. I don't know my kids are not getting close. Cutting up a stake at tan. So all right They are sneaking in a kiss. Ben is Not happy hat is going to turn herself back online. After sarah says who needs pat anyhow yeah differently walls have ears here For phones hang on the ceiling. Perhaps yeah and so. Meanwhile pat has come online Ben is being subaru. Dad takes him to his room. They try to blame like this awkward conversations. That happened in this film. Where dad is like like you know. I know that women had a lot of hormones at this age. But i didn't know that that young men have hormones at this age to is this hormonal mark that she had a bunch of brothers when when she was young. I don't know the blame. Is this puberty is that. Is that the problem for them. I don't think. I don't think that's exactly what it is doesn't seem like standard puberty. The smart house a metaphor for puberty like things are different. Things are changing. It's confusing inner. Rob you might be onto something here you know. I had never considered that coming of age story. It is it is as many disney channel. Original movies are of newfound life lesson maturity. Yeah all right. So pat is alive and is pat taking a human form at this point. Yeah the hologram hologram hologram. Yeah and i really didn't think it was going be. Oh this is going to turn into the all the original mother from the video because she watched she watched him jewish ben watching the video and he's crying little too dark for the dr instead. Here is katie seagal and she sort of like dressed with like one thousand nine hundred fifty s housewife like an apron. Yeah she she's got like the kind of sitcom looks s. That's the sitcoms okay. So she will not let herself be preempted because she is going to. Now be the this family needs right and you know. She's cloning herself and everything i mean. It's it's just terrifying. Pat is able to kick sarah out of the house also. Yeah with that same robot arm that gets the paper and got the bully out. Yeah endured just immediately like bolts up to. It's a little bit of like a frankenstein story. Where sarah know has created this monster and now it has turned against her right. And there's no way to shut it down. She says that you know think that it would unique. I mean who knew jonathan penner. No one thought he would me either know here we are. I'm just doing woods. Best for this family me pap. Okay so sarah. It gets kicked out of the house and now this is a borderline terrifying that. They're being chased around the house by hat. She's not listening. Pat is saying hey look. The world out there is unpredictable and dangerous. And it's like cutting to like video of like nazi germany and like atomic bombs exploding. Yeah really really odd here. Not sure at that was lavar. Burton went very dark here with the imagery. I can't control what's happening in the outside world. Look at this. Yeah yeah like the nazi army like marching exactly. Is that what. I didn't quite notice that but man that is that is pretty dr. Yeah your day with pat in the house. And she'll protect you and she could be a multiple places at once so the family regroups. This is a very dark moment. But they're like okay. We're gonna come with plan. I don't know how they communicated to each other. They were gonna do this plan right. I don't either because you'd think that the house with them. I also noticed that they were sleeping in the living room. Yeah they all slept in one room together like on a mat on the floor. Kind of odd. I mean i don't think that sleeping in different rooms to really make that finger difference. But i mean maybe it's so also at the same time. Sarah is working from outside the house. Then the she used butler the mouse to get a like a planned to ben. Yes some sort of message. Rate goes through that forementioned this mouse hole the knees in this house for some reason it's through i mean definitely pretty solid you think pat we notice but maybe she was busy on so they end up where we see that ben is in the bathtub with the dog trying to contact. Sara what's what's going on in the night before before. Okay right and they wake up. They say that ben has appendicitis right. That he's sick. And you know pat is tending to him and he kind of gives. The hint it hurts is the appendix like. Why would it be on your back or whatever he was like. No it's definitely appendicitis. Sort of a distraction ploy Yeah and pat falls for it. Hook line and sinker is distracted to the point where it does not see sarah breaking in crack. She jumps into the newspaper hatch. yeah and she gets in there and then pat tries to pull like a real like emotional move on ben and sings the song. The mockingbird song that Original mom saying to him right and definitely you know. I think this this is kind of where i mean it. It's sort of sort of his working but then this is the revelation that he's not real yes. I don't know why at villa that she would have known this already but like she's like see like dad tried to protect us. You can just a hologram. You're not real. You are real mom since handwrite through and then this is where this is. Apparently all a chuck. I guess you're right. You're right point that's it just and this is on the run time there's like two minutes and thirty seconds left in the movie at this point. Oh and a lot of unresolved questions too. I mean i. It was almost like they're just like lavar. Wrap it up these this call in here Very very much the dame's x. Mock you know if you will. Yeah because they end up in having sarah just like she makes some tweaks and then even after all this everybody moves in and they stay in the smart house after one day. They're living together. I mean the tweaks apparently solid but notice that They decided to go ahead. And keep the the katie seagal yet on the monitor right. They didn't go back. It's like it's like it's like a cartoon of like one thousand nine hundred fifty s woman in the early on screens and they decided to just keep the hall and raymond screen. Which i don't know i think out here. I feel your little bit tainted on that. I would want that one there. So sarah never has a blow up with ben when sarah is like. She's spent her whole life working on building the smart house so that every waking hour of her entire life came to this point with culmination of the smart house. It's perfect okay. Oh my god it's gone haywire. What happens nobody eddie. Never have a confrontation of what the this should have never happened. I don't understand how the house is capable of doing that. We have fail. Safes all over the place. This is impossible that she's like. Nobody touched anything right. Nobody's like nobody went in the control room or did anything and there was no okay Mea culpa sarah. I actually reprogram the whole thing and took the safety protocols off like what. Why would you do that. I didn't want you to date my dad and you didn't talk to block your dad from dating me. Yeah things seemed much happily ever after just found out of nowhere. They never talk about this. We have to wonder if there isn't a smart house over this sort of comes up. I mean. I think that would just be a lot of lot of baggage there. okay. I feel like that. Aren't there normally sequels with these disney channel original films. I know of let me let me go ahead sir. Quick i guess did high school musical change the game because there is reached what re or four right. Now i feel like that they they make one these disney channel movies. And i feel like there's two three four. That's the movie game. Our modern movie game is just trying to turn something into like a where you can get a franchise out of it being warm strain so i have here the list of disney channel original movies It does seem like there are quite a few sepals on here. Some of them are original sequels the parent trap to Let's see not quite human to human parent trap three. I had no idea that these exists. Yeah if we made smart smart house. What would you call smarter house. Yeah and then the third one would be smarter. Smartest house south's okay. What happens in smarter house so that that hulu that you mention has to come up right. Talk about like what happened. What happened here. The smart office comes into play. Maybe the dad has to go work at the smart office. there's something goes haywire. Tastes like a boss character. Yeah i mean could be some sort of like a super bowl commercial like this yesterday where people a woman had a amazon alexa in the form of Michael jordan and is it possible that in the next iteration of the smarter house. There's like a you know instead of a rat butler. Maybe there's like a hot butler. Maybe dad gets jealous. Maybe maybe that's what happens. I would think. Also though the whole the gwynn ben storylines kind of know nothing further rate. We just have no idea what happens them at the end of the movie like. Here's the scene where he's playing basketball and pat like tells him how to angle his foot to help shot. There's no like you would think maybe this would be a good place for when is there and like waves or something. What happened there. What if the house gets hacked in smarter house to. maybe maybe. That's the line for smartest house like like home alone right like it starts off pretty plausible. Bank robbers come back the bank robbers come back they hijacked the they had an exploit. Yes and then. He's lost in new york and then the third one it's korean terrorist organizing right. I mean it just goes completely off the deep end smart smartest. Is that really home alone. Three three sure. That's what happens. The kids were watching it this year. Brian pay close attention to it. Half the fact check that believe that it is home alone three. Let's take it. Were rian terrorist organization. It is so i. I typed it in it i I had roman numerals. It's just the numbers three and it's the plot. I line here peter. Whatever alice burton an earl are four internationally. Wanted spies where he ray north korean terrorist organization. This is my memory did serve correctly nineteen ninety seven's home alone three young real definitely well. That's a great way to tie it all back that i feel like the first time we ever talked about a movie was home alone. One correct. yeah that's right that's absolutely right. Yeah remember the time. He came to my house diehard. I do i do remember. That was the last movie we did which that was then. I think we also did a christmas story. In between we did because christmas story would have been late. Twenty thirteen only at the Twenty fourteen going into twenty fifteen right around there be cast was die hard. That seems pretty craft because that was around the house. When i was pretty involved. I kind of just well. You haven't lost the step. This was so nice to get to reconnect with you today. Absolutely i had a lot of fun. Yeah ian you're one of the few big brother players that i that talks to me and it is a friend so i appreciate you so much absolute way you know rob. Thanks for thanks for having me. Thanks for putting off content. we're trying well. Hopefully maybe smart house will have like a little bit of a resurgence. Maybe it might be the new new pot. I have a feeling that it's going to be high up on the list downloads or views or whatever because of this. yes disney's plus doesn't have a top ten like netflix. But maybe if it did yeah. Yeah yeah yeah sure. What should be the reboot of smart house. Would it be a tv show. You know. I actually think that's a good idea. A sixty five episode series. Yes starring the smart house characters and how. Now it has be now smart house. Be totally smart house. Now have to be like you know. I mean everyone's got smart house now. Yes burke everyone's got a smart house. You're not really supposed to leave. I mean basically like. I think it would be hard to make this exciting enough to be tv series. Yeah i have to say so. I think maybe now. Maybe it's like a futuristic house of some sort. You know maybe it'd be like kind of like word. Jetsons like right like kind of like robots running around you know things like yeah okay so maybe some sort of like a jetson sitcom something like that. But then again. I feel like disney already. Kind of went down this path with what was that one called zenawi girl of the twenty first century. I believe girl the twenty first century. Okay i was trying to show me at the end of this movie. Yeah i mean it makes sense. I mean that's that is a disney channel original movie yes non girl of the twenty th century and what's that what about About never really watched police through. It was apparently a pilot for a television series. That you're as two thousand forty nine. So we're not looking and zine on is a thirteen year old girl who lives with her family on earth on an earth orbiting space station So i mean not a lot of directions. Yeah they're right. After this goes right into zeon girl of the twenty first century. Yeah i mean just a lot of age phil of the future a month. Waiter that was. That was right around the time where i was no longer watching. The disney channel remember. My younger brother was watching it. So i remember seeing the commercials and you know it's coming up Coming up on their the. Have phil of the future. I feel that there's a lot of xenon spinoffs zeon the sequel and then zenon z. Three that's a trilogy. I seen that. Yes i see again. A lot of sequels on these channel is a maybe zenon changed the game. Not high school musical. I had no idea well. Apparently there's a cheater girls to high school musical to camp rock to eriko in lane to wait. That's not a sequel. But yeah definitely a lot in besides the disney channel of library. What else is are you up to. Where what else should check you out doing. People just go find you play backgammon. Does that ever happen. Yeah it happened Like once i play online a little bit on a few different sites. There's a lot of sites out there. But i play online. Do you do twitch two months not exactly making a living off it. Okay and people. Do you ever get out your handle or you would never do that now. It's my handles out there. depends on the site. Most common one is F- were keen on on to the main site. Seth the one. I use the most and then on a backgammon galaxy. There as. Don't please me bro for team. So it's the reason is the site balance on. It's like a space like science fiction. Sorta evening side like seen on. Yeah exactly exactly. It tastes thing. Phaser so i figured it was a cute name. Yeah all right. Well ian this is so fun to get to connect the at anytime you want to podcasts. Talk about anything that you let me know. I'm here sounds very goodness bradley. I mean it's so nice to get to catch up with you. That i feel like rob a podcast is like this is like the the high school where i feel like that you graduated. You came back on the teacher. I'm still here you know it's like people go people come in. They spend time with me and then they go off and they do other things in the world and they come back to the high school like. Oh you're still here. And that's what. This is the quickness. It was very nice so yeah i'll still be here. You know i'll still be here. Maybe one day your kids will go to this school.

Yeah relative to most right uh-huh yeah my preference in thank you so much. This was so great to catch you. Aware of what i'm doing with the survivor. All-time season rankings. I heard because there was controversy lately. I did i did. I did see a little bit of that. Yes over that. We have gotten all forty of our seasons ranked by the listeners. Robs a podcast. They went through it. We are going to be talking about the thirty fifth. Best season of survivor this wednesday night. Worlds apart wow. That's funny because that is about one of the last seasons. I watched not because it was low in quality by young ended up getting kind of busy with other things. Last one i watched was Heroes know what does it healers versus Heroes versus hustler team seemed a little bit odd to me. I didn't like the fire thing at the end because you can't plan around that. I did not watch winners at war. I saw the finale. Because at that point i knew i was going. Yes so i was like i might be maybe a good idea to see how this plays out yes. I was surprised that i said okay. Why because i felt like the tony. Tony had a good plan. Going back into such he was such a big threat of like he did a lot of stuff to like. Really try to like get people off the scent in the early part of the game i mean he was laying low. You should and walked out. Yeah ian thank you so much for talking about smart house with us.

In just a moment but I miscommunicated in the last segment demint just for the record. I actually believe I love. Lucy holds up. Put that on the Pole Guillermo at Lebatardshow I did not mean to disparage. I I love Lucy So put it on the poll. Better Show I love Lucy or friends and does I love Lucy. Stand up but what I was doing doing in the reference to I love Lucy is that once upon a time in America the best and number one show was a very antiseptic show where the couple that was married. Couldn't even have a single bed on television. Because of the lack of edginess allowed on television and friends to me was was the version of that in the modern era that represented television network television having no teeth and much of what you see now grabbing all your streaming dollars away from network television is that network television Still doesn't have much in the way of that wasn't just like a television thing. I was a real real life thing. Husband and wives used to do sleep in separate beds. I remember visiting my great grandparents. They still had separate beds in the nineties. I've never had my own bed. This seems like impossible. You're saying that it wasn't simply a contrivance by I love Lucy I thought that what are you guys is laughing about just how terrible that joke was by him. I thought Billy was not blaming. Anyone just did. I'll two dollars. What was the joke supposed to being? I wouldn't mind my own bed. Abby would it minds are are you saying that he delivered that wronged wronged in. Are you not saying that I was just asking not saying it was wrong. I was simply asking you guys. What happened there me asking what happened? It does not get me fine. Listen I am in final preparations right here. I didn't hear it. I thought Billy might say I got it wrong two dollars. That's fine four dollars for you. So let's do the BCS ranking explained to me how we're doing this. Stu Stu gods is infuriating yelling about something. He doesn't actually care about while ignorantly yelling. That Ohio State has played anybody. No I actually care about this I I thought we put this committee together to actually look past the records to have some vision to not just put undefeated teams in order and then sprinkle Minnesota down the road. Oh you know and like twelve so they have real hard chance of making it to the College Football playoff so we decided to bring back the BCS and actually apply some logic to this. It doesn't it'd have to be undefeated teams. A two loss team could be in our playoff and we're very inclusive here. This is a sixteen playoff. Yup Not six teams like conference chant. The conference playoffs for NFL. Top to get by three verse six four verse five. We played out that way. We've already moved onto sixteen because we know everyone wants expansion so the BCS acs the beast. Answer Billy but it also stands for bigger and better at so. Are we ready to do this. Mike Number one starting with start with number one. I thought you WanNa get DSP BCS Dan the BCS. Yep We'll start with number one hour number one team after several days several hours in meetings a lot of food billy Chris and STU gods decided that Lsu who leads the nation in duff they are our our number one team in the country. What's the Duh Duh? They're good they also lead the nation in. TD's which which is that dude's they have seventeen seventeen. Td Their team. That's they've got of course led by borough but they have sixteen others. There's so that's a number one team in the country as of right now the Lsu Tigers in the playoffs number two number two now. This is a little bit of a shocker. On the second you just stop for a second. Because I've gone our in six minutes somehow not mentioning mentioning how ridiculous. Mike's Mustache looks and it is on full peacock display when he laughs. Because he's wearing i. I Joey laughed. I mean it looks as good as that can look on anybody but it doesn't look good in any way that treasonable anyway number two number two to number two number two Minnesota and they have a very strong W. The U. L. C. we like Cinderella. That's very strong resume. Not that great but they have a huge they also have the most impressive win from the past weekend and being a huge thing in the BCS. If you win the weekend you're probably going to be in the playoffs and Minnesota number to forgive. Give me here. I thought that we didn't love Cinderella's only when it came to the end of the season when you know that team's not as good as the others and you know they're not actually going to be able to run the gauntlet when it's the best programs at the end. I thought correct me if I'm wrong. You're wrong you're wrong. Yeah Yeah Yeah all right. So is that another dollar for me. Yep Damn well know it all right go ahead. What's number three number three number three Dan Ohio L. State Ohio strangulation as gods a very high? B T T W T bt of course course we all know that is b-teams away. You're supposed to beat teen. I haven't played anyone. But they beat the bad teams the way you're supposed to beat beat bad teams and therefore the buckeyes our number three in the BCS. I gotTa tell you. I think that this one is better than the way they're doing it right now. Att Pt W.. T. V. T.. I think this is what America wants right here. Just stop with all these formulas and stop with all these. Lax is just. Do it the dumbest way Gaza you for your yeah the BCS by number four number four a two loss team making into the playoffs. We have the Florida gators. At number four they lead the nation IGGY out rate losses they lost to Lsu and Georgia. We know okay. They lost Georgia Georgia. The playoff spot will explain. Why Florida's ahead of Georgia second? But they leave the nation Asian. Great laws is they were tied about this tied at half with Lsu at Lsu down by seven headed into the fourth quarter. They beaten Auburn. They lots of Georgia neutral field. Close game too great losses. A great win rate conference the gators afford seed in the College Football playoff. The neutral field makes a loss not in a little perplexing number. Five the number five. You think this team might be higher. It is Georgia now. Their record says eight and one guys but we've got them more at around seven seven to you maybe even seven one and a half to one and a half. Listen here's the thing that South Carolina laws which is a bad loss. They lead the country and be AL's bad losses that South Carolina a loss to us the committee the BCS felt like two losses. Maybe one and a half losses so so they're not really eight and one seven two or seven and a half. The one and a half a Chris. Can you explain to me how it is that you are that terrible that you had in front of you. Whatever the joke was and you couldn't get it outright where you know exactly when it's your turn and you know that you were supposed to go loss loss and a half or whatever it is that you were supposed to do there? Can you just explain to me what happened to you there. You heard you heard right right all right. That's not a dollar how you thought it was good. He now number six number six aches. Let's head down to Tuscaloosa Alabama dan leading the country in L. U. W. T. S.. Left US wanting inning to see more of that we don't know they're good and played anyway. Unbeaten anyone good but the one good team they played Ray comeback second-half at it left us wanting to see more number seven. What this is the ally Dan you gotTa know who's on the outside looking kinda outside looking in the chance though number seven Clem sit wait a minute what they leave the country in indeed be? NCB didn't beat North Carolina by that's it and therefore the undefeated Clemson Tigers. They are on the O. L. I. Outside a look at in as you guys know no one that's ever been in the BB. NCB has ever made it into the BCS S. Championship playoff system. And you guys Tell me does. North Carolina have more than four losses. Right now how many loss is does North Carolina have because the the reason that I the only reason I asked the question is I believe that. North Carolina would be undefeated if not for four of the weirdest endings. We've ever ever seen that Mack Brown's North Carolina team. I believe all four of their losses are totally ridiculous None of us have any idea. Let's move up number. Eight number. Number Eight is eight and one Oregon say there could be a little higher but they lead the league in y Que t G. TCI TB G which of course means you know. They're going to choke in the pain so that puts them in the the outside looking in just two teams to go Dan. Dan Okay we have the no L. I.. Next outside looking at number nine are I were headed out of the next outside looking the number nine team in the country. Cincinnati why Cincinnati. You ask a question Dan. They lead the country and WWL. WWF S we like like what we see here the VAT this is getting all right. There's one on the back. Half of the top. Ten is getting flimsy here. What we see number nine nine nine? Yeah we need Ted. This is the second team and next outside looking in the the midshipmen navy. Oh for the love of one loss and lead the country in C. Y. F. Y. S.. Thank you for for your service. Shohei free at you WANNA be the guy. That's his name doesn't belong log in. I mean is it more. Thank you for your service than Air Force and army had a better record all their services tape record to do with anything. You put Florida Georgia. It great losses. I leave the country g else.

I believe you owe me thirteen dollars. Checks out the me moving on. Why Jeff Passan is GONNA join us in ten minutes ten minutes from now? Can you guys look for me. How North Carolina has lost? Its four games this season. Because I'm pretty sure that Mack Brown would be undefeated. If not for they had six overtime game they had one game where the clock at the end of the game was clearly mismanaged by by the time keepers. They had more time left. They were headed in. They may not have scored. They probably wouldn't have scored but they should have gotten another play. They lost by six points points at wake forest they lost by three points versus Appalachian State. They lost by a single point. Of course to Clemson lost by two points at Virginia Tech and in a touchdown versus Virginia and all of them all of them were weird at the end though each of them was had its own special weirdness sir. I don't know if he would listen to me and ideas university. Miami's nine plays away from being undefeated entire. ACC put it on the poll. Guillermo is the entire. ACC we see nine. Plays away from being undefeated. Corey Moskva. Dole was on with US yesterday. b. m. f. the APP State game ended on a blocked field goal to your point and he said on this show and I wouldn't say to his face because I'm a coward worked. But he said on this show that he wants Hello Alvarez he also said that he wants money and those two things go together But he would have no chance against Canal Alvarez. Chris in a boxing match The the the mentioning of yesterday. Because I'm a coward. Did I already say that in there and I thought he made a lot of great points with the energy blocks that were moving now that he's not kicking. It just means that it can throw twenty thousand more punches. You like Mike Fires. That's right. I waited for him to leave. You KINDA did dismiss it a little yesterday when it was brought up. You're like no no but you didn't stay would just said yeah. That's right and I will tell him but not to his face. Maybe I'll shouted across the room. He would have no chance in a boxing match against canal. Who is the best boxer and you have seen? How how's how's Nate Diaz? You saw what happened. Couldn't it be mutually beneficial though. Like if they've fought because boxing was waiting around for UFC to finish before cannella fought his last fight. Like there's pictures of him laying on a couch waiting for Moskvy doll the fight so that people would see his fight yes it would be beneficial to all involved to just just do circus tent type of stuff but what I am telling you and I know you guys object to this as you. Tell me that you love the conor. McGregor Floyd Mayweather Fight Floyd Mayweather as a defensive fighter just carried connor around for a few rounds to make it something like was in no point in anything anything in the way of actual jeopardy and Kamilo is is a bigger puncher like he's more of an offensive threat. Canelo think I think we're him. Mazda is getting knocked out. He's not gonNA face any Lancet. You Cannella Alvarez. He he knew win every round even even must be said. Maybe I don't punch his heart as he does. That's something that must be dealt said Dan. I am telling you this man is not going to be knocked out. He just not zone. You come from a different cloth. Listen Cannella might win the fight okay but it will not be by knockout. I mean Moskva. We'll we'll be standing at the end of the fight. I want to see that. Only if canal carries him around the way that Floyd Mayweather did look I am not. I am not ripping Jorges Mazda doll. Aw when I said he'll be standing I meant he'll be standing over cannella choice for someone who just invited him to tournament. Because you know he's going to see you again right right. ELMO joins US next as we watched the suburban garden gnome carefully Catholic without disturbing it. Notice that it moves like not at all it's inanimate and utterly without brain function but despite that when it got Nomura's about how Geico not only saves people money but also gives them access to licensed agents and twenty four seven online and over the phone. It's clear to them. You should switch because yes. Switching to GEICO is a no brainer on second thought. Maybe don't want garden gnomes uh-huh to carefully people mytalk Donlevatar. Listen the unfortunate thing with the dodgers. They have a good offense. They've tried that mess out there every couple of days as a mess in the postseason Kerr show go ahead. You got the posies numbers. To God's just describe the greatest pitcher images generation as a total mess total mess described it. We're GONNA postseason numbers numbers right. He's five hundred seven. That's the wrong stat or about four point three five. That's the one that's more damning. which what the era about the rings right?

The you know the Oakland A.'s in two thousand eighteen reported them to MLB for noise coming out of the DUGOUT and The Yankees this year during the lcs accuse them mm of whistling and what this noise and what this whistling what all these things are essentially is from the dugout or from somewhere in the stadium. batters or being signaled what pitches are coming now. Signed stealing in major league. Baseball has been an avowed practice You know Ad Infinitum item. It's just something that if you can find the the angle that a picture is holding his glove at is different when he throws a fastball and changeup up you have stolen A pitch right there. Or if if you ever runner at second base and he sees a sign and can relate by tapping his right leg with his index finger for a curve ball or his left leg with his pinky finger for fastball. That's something that's been excessive. What what they're alleging the astros done and what Mike Fires? The former Astros pitcher admitted. Is that the Astros Centerfield camera. That was focused on the signs that were being given by The catcher and that it was fed into a monitor near their dugout and that they would go into the back tunnel and making noise to indicate batters. What was coming through this camera? And that is something that If proven true by MLB In an investigation is going to have severe severe consequences not just for the Astros Organization but for the sanctity of the sport right like this is high level legitimate cheating accusations. Jeff are the Astros bad people just all of them. Because that's a great question it feels like people don't like the including our were players earned. I think the Astros might lead the league in just bad people as as as somebody Dan who and your words at the beginning of the segment were very kind and and I'm very appreciative of the as as somebody who does not want to Go Out and and and judge people and prefers to look at the facts I'm going to look at the fact that A former assistant general manager was touting at the team got a Alleged domestic abuser and was lording it over women in the clubhouse during a pennant winning celebration. I'm going to look at the fact that a former Astros player us says that They're cheating to the levels that that we have not seen in this sport sport In a really long time and I will simply allow the facts to restaurant there And and Speak for themselves the group his mad at me. The shipping container is mad at me. I can see the disgust and their faces. Why is it that you're mad at me? We just wanted to hear ELM and we have more bad people the question rescue Elmo I I you think the penalty when you say significant penalty. What is it that you think we're looking at well? The the you know it's funny in Major League baseball the most you can do you are the most the commissioner can do is fine a team two million dollars so essentially when that is the the largest amount a team staring at literally every team ever a minor league team would pay two million dollars to win a championship let alone a major league team. It has revenues in the hundreds of millions of dollars where the league could come down with. Hammers is is banning players and suspending players and and and management and Coaching staff and anybody who was involved in this and the great fear and is that this is something that extends beyond the Houston Astros that this is not something that is limited to them that this is something that is much more widespread in baseball and that they're going to be other the teams And other people in snared in this and I will tell you this has a chance to be a much much bigger story than the two thousand seventeen Houston astras. Astra's why did fires do this I don't think his His partying from the team was very good I I don't know Mike fires personally so I can't sit here and say that he is The the most moral person in the world world and he felt like this was wrong and he needed to come out and talk about it but I you know for a long time. He has been telling teammates. And you look at. Let's put it this way oakland in two thousand seventeen With the with the banging on the trash can and the clapping coming from the dugout. My fires here's was on that Oakland a's team in two thousand eighteen so You know put together okay In the next segment we're going to put together is Elmo Jeff.

This show delivered you alley. All STUGATZ will perhaps it was absurd and ridiculous these things live at our show Oh stugotz on. ESPN radio. Time to take a look at the College Football playoff rankings. LSU rises the number one Ohio state drops the number to Clemson moves up to number three Georgia goes to number four Alabama drops to fifth Oregon rises to six. As a result of Minnesota's upset victory over Penn state the badgers moved up to eighth while the nittany lions drop tonight getting a game with the cheesy crunchy satisfaction of cheese. It official sponsor of the College Football playoff so Jeff Passan revealed something. Tim Kirk should have gone the rest of his life without ever telling pulling me about but for some reason he must have whispered it to passing And complaining secretly so a passing. Tell the people again please as we bring in Tim. Kirk and gift giving Allison Turner tell the people again What it is? That Kirk told you during the playoffs. I JUST WANNA make sure to say there was no complaints. Ain't about this at all because Tim Kirch in is the best and he wouldn't dare complain but he and I both share a love for Diet Mountain dew and when we were talking talking about Diet Mountain Dew This year he revealed that the refrigerator that you guys sent him as a wonderful gift happens to have an extraordinarily Jordan narrowly loud motor and that needs to be unplugged for When he goes on TV? That's him complaining. It really is. It's him him I'm being ungrateful and complained. Being angry. Problem with is dating facts about how our good gesture went wrong. That happens in life all right. So Kirk comes on with us now. And how do you feel about everything being revealed publicly here And how apologetic should the show when. Allison be for this intrusion on your life. Well I'm never speaking of Jeff Passan again. I'm not to tell anybody about this but and I didn't volunteer this. It came up kind of naturally organically and I did indeed explain that my mini fridge that has died about me written all over it and not to mention for likenesses of be a two of the show horns like a lawn mower and I can't use it. I have to unplug it every time I do a live shot from my office because it sounds like there's a league record in the room so I've the had to unplug it but I did not complain about it. I did not report it because you guys sent it to me as a gesture of good faith nobody nobody would call back and say thanks but it doesn't work send me another one. I would never do that. I will never do that. But that's exactly what you're doing you you use it still guys call me. Jeff has gave me up in this. Nothing I don't want another refrigerator. Great curator because you were kind enough to send me one. I'm not going to complain about how we should send you a working one. That doesn't sound like a lawnmower. Alison explained Yourself and explain on behalf of the show how mortified you are right now. I'm mortified I had no idea that it was loud and we'll make sure to get it out out of your house and send your working one. This is really not necessary and anyone any good at these things probably figure it out how to make the noise go away fix the motor but as we know I I can't fix anything. I tried to blow up my basketball ball today because it was a little low and the the pin went into the basketball and now it's completely flat. I go buy another one because I can't could pump up a basketball. And there's a chance that I could fix a motor inside a bidding fridge. How soon did this machine start making this noise? After it got into your house I would say a matter of days. Not even a week and allison willison was making noise. Why do we send people? Cheap awful level gives the good into their house and become lawn. MOWER sounds didn't interrupt their ability to do their job. It was so thoughtful. Everything's gone into feces. This is so bad. I can't believe I'm a part of this. I'm sorry but you call me. I answer the question like I always tried to do. And don't be sorry. We're sorry we're sorry alison. Sorry Stu gods is not sorry at all had no idea that anybody sent anything and has been writing me notes the entire segment. Why isn't he thanking me? That's all God's has been writing me. Thank you and I'm really sorry. Tim and Allison your punishment. Is You got to move to Bristol.

Hour 3: Smoke Break 2x

"This is the Dan Le Batard show with this too. Hot Spot Cass Mike what's going on with Woodstock because I have tickets to this thing I doc my cat. It was supposed to be up of Kids Cam after Kim you know the story. We've talked about on the show. Greg Stehlin company were schedule is on their website. I'll check it right now. Can't it can't still be on the website that I'm only going for that for deadandcompany and my kids wanted it was supposed to be walking Watkins Glen International Speedway and they couldn't have any of the permits all of this really down to the wire. Producers are taken L. after L. after L. and now they're pivoting to a completely different state. It's it's it's the worst thing since the fire festival. It's a nightmare. It's pretty bad. I'm trying to see if woodstock is on a dating company's website. It is it is not like wow it has been removed. There's been no word on which acts will now still play the festival. I can't believe that they're still going through and they've probably already lost so much money that we're fighting investors in court. It's just an ugly ugly. Scene like woodstock is generally by the way right. The original one was ugly. See would would sock is the most famous music festival of all time maybe outside of Glastonbury you can flip a coin on those who certainly the most influential sound fine. We're talking about it. A little bit of I've never heard the other one being myopic Americans out by the way and the twentieth anniversary of Woodstock was also a nightmare but I'm not angry. Woodstock has been a disaster but I'm not certain Jay Z. pulled out anything because I'm not even certain he committed to it. I mean I think all flyers yeah no he was he was committed and they made the the wonderful idea of committing to pay all the artists their full guarantee upfront which is something you never see in the music festival business and yet bit him it been bad but <hes> yeah every woodstock ever I mean they needed humanitarian aid for the first one. The one in the nineties had in ninety two. I believe had the mud people ninety nine famous riots because I ran out of water charging insane prices prices which I'm sure we're paying now actually not batting an eye and this fiftieth anniversary disaster yeah the ninety nine Woodstock I just read an interview with Sheryl Crow and she called she was there and she called it the worst concert she's ever performed at just because the crowd because of everything that's actually where my passion really for like a having an eclectic love of music came from because the ninety nine woodstock was on pay per view television and I had one of those illegal cable boxes than ten o'clock would switch to bay very nice. We have to promote Greg Cody Day tomorrow on the West Coast of Florida we will do it one more time here before <hes> before the show he cannot attend billy's wedding because he has which is tonight because Greg Cody night tomorrow yeah yeah according to Greg Cody R._S._V._p.. No reason girding I was billy understood and I already told him sending him a nice fondue set. It's <hes> yes. That's been in your garage in seventy six unopened. It looks new after I get all the dust off it. <hes> people are giving you a hard time but we did what we had to do like we told billy well in advance that we cannot attend his wedding. I feel terrible about it. I really really do. I don't care if they believe me or not. I feel terrible because I love billy and they're giving us a hard time we we have we both have mine a little bit better than yours. We both have very good excuses the very good excuse and you know and I am in fairness. I am sending Christopher and his wife as my Emma sorry. That's very nice thank you. I'm also sending Christopher as my emissary. Sorry for your Greg Cody Day important yeah wait. Oh wait oh blow off my my big event. Mike the Heights of Fort Wayne Indiana. You know exactly this amnesty thing. Roy Your mind you. They represent you wells. You need okay got her job. Pay Nothing. We know what we do know Roy. We'll drink enough scotch for the two of you all. I want to get to the smoke break. Mikey see I'll never stop hearing about it so I used to do a show we get observations with Michael Junior on the weekends and we did a segment called smoke break and the way this segment started was excuse me the way it started was I once asked Mike you see a question on air and he was not there to answer the question and I asked someone else where he was and while our show is going on he was out by the dumpster and the Bristol camp is smoking a cigarette while me and my goal junior. We're doing a show together. He was our producer and so we just stay there and then we did we didn't we didn't let them come back that day. So then we just decided to be funny. If mikey see recorded some of the conversations he was having out by the dumpster and the Bristol campus and we call it. We made it a weekly feature on the show. We call it smoke break with Mike A._C.. And it's it's grown to be very popular. We've done it a couple of times on stupidity has it well billy. Chris Lovett Me Billy Chris love it my kind of why you love it. Yes it allows. Osmond nothing but me billy and Chris we have grown to love. Mike Easy not like Love My D._C.. And we love the segment. He's the most underutilized talented E._S._p._N.. It really is he is he is listen. He is is walking unintentional content. That's what he he just just his presence around. This show gives you just endless content intentional sometimes mostly unintentional ed so he took doc now. Jason Fitz is another one. This guy is dying to come on our show forever and be any any part of this show stupidity South Beach sessions former violinist for the band Perry yes and now hosting <hes> Golick and Wingo which is strange because his name is Jason Fitz but he's they're more than window. It's really odd the whole dynamic. They figured it out they have four host of that show and so any to could take off at any moment we need to do this. Well we actually that and we ah we actually have they copied us so Jason Fitz. They copied us. It should be going in fits. It's Golic and Wingo and Jason Fitz. Was this week's I I shouldn't say this week because we don't do it every week but he joined Mikey see out at the dumpster on the personal cabdriver cigarette time we might see in a new edition of one of the most popular segments on E._S._p._N.. At smoke break was Mike you see I'm your host. Mikey see by the dumpster due to knock and I'm being joined by one of the coolest guys here at E._S._p._N.. None other than Jason Fitz from the Golic and Wingo show and everything how you doing you know I feel like I've made it now like now. When you take a smoke break with Mike he's I don't even smoke but just take a smoke break with Mike? I'm living the Mars Yeah Yeah Yeah. It felt like a news. The Knox screw them here. I was surprised because I mean you've been you've been in the entertainment business. You were on tour and everything and you were just telling me that you've never smoked never never cigarette a cigarette have never I've life goal is to party with Willie Nelson but I've never smoked a cigarette so Willie Nelson asks you to have a cigarette with me would but he does. I mean it's it's going to be a different kind of cigarette might be getting out of here. I mean Willy Willy and I we're GONNA have a good time but never got into the cigarette thing you've been doing golic and Wingo now. You're a permanent means there. How are you sleeping at night? Oh sleep is non-existent. Do I in the last five six G <HES> so you know I get up at about three thirty three forty five every morning <hes> but I found so far like I take like a little cat nap during the day and then I go to sleep at like like nine thirty at night so I'm trying to you know it's just sort of trying to find that balance. What's what's GonNa Stink is? Let's be honest the two best teams in the N._B._A.. This year are going to be both in L._A.. So we are going to have some late nights and I'm GONNA be grumpy. Mike you see like I'm GonNa be groping. You know you can never be grumbling. Here's the Lakers make me grumpy. It's going to be happened before I let you go. You know you've got detaching probably up there as the coolest ink here at Bristol I WanNa get you know the the arm being everything but I just don't want to start start off with just one little thing. Can you do it all in one sitting. I did it all in one sitting. I've never done one little thing so my right. Arm is the more tattooed full-sleeve and it took a total of three but I've never sat in the chair. I've never been in the chair for less than four four hours. So that's how long it is taken to do like I've always done it in a huge segments but I will tell you this. I had a lot of friends that told me that I call. It doesn't hurt that bad. I called my friends afterwards. I'm like we're not friends anymore. This hurts so much good. Oh no no it's brutal and then people like oh the shadings not back full color. Oh my God no it is it's brutal but the thing is you get about a third of the way through and then you realize I can't do anything about it now. I'm not going to have a third of a tattoo so and then the the memory fades and how much it hurts and all of a sudden six months later you're like in another one. I passed a kidney stone almost every other day. The other guy got a pipe pain. Media can handle it all right well. Maybe you can come with me and give me some ideas. We'll get like matching tattoos. I like it all right. Thanks very much another success is I can't even look at Mike when we hear that I can't his disdain for the second you think he's kidding about that. Kidney Stone he sent a picture of that kidney stone to billy and he I showed it to me it relative to the size of a quarter that thing was huge. What's your favorite part? Is it the tapping of the dumpster so you know that he's at the dumpster is the first rag that he hand about that revelation who got he got quite a revelation in from Jason Fitz.

Welcome to a new edition of E._S._P._N.'s most most popular segment it smoke break and make you see your host on sudden rank you see by the dumpster and being joined by Ritu as one of our fabulous engineers here at E._S._p._N.. But I wanted to talk to you because rich you were in the thick of things you were at the top at the top of the heap. You were in L._A.. Traffic reporter in your day weren't you. If you want to call it that yes yet is like you're in the issue. If you could say you were I was it was it was nineteen eighty-four the working for metro traffic in L._A.. And the hired me because they were beefed up reporters <hes> them reportedly had on the field for the Olympics so you're out there during the Olympics to the super bowl of traffic no it was totally dead. There was nothing there was no traffic for the entire two weeks of the Olympics. I mean everyone. They asked people to stay home and adjust their hours and they did so the traffic. We was one of the Times in L._A.. History where there was two weeks ago traffic or wow I reported on no traffic I I've ever gotten text during my smoke break rowing all right well that is kind <music> disappointing the bottom line. Is You know behind me fulltime after that okay so you know I got. I got a gig doing that for two years. Why is traffic so bad? Nelly we have over here in east but we have rush hour traffic but in L._A.. It's constant traffic was out there at in drive around two in the morning and that was in traffic well look at the population out there willing to build bigger roads they have do they. They've expanded the highways freeways but there's so many cars just Kinda connaitre. There's one stretch and traffic than I used to. When I was on air that was from Long Beach down to just to Orange County line it was seven lanes of traffic still traffic jams backed up entire fourth mile stretch? Isn't it true that most car fires are actually not caused by cigarettes correct right yeah most car fires are caused people not putting oil in their engines. Okay all right. which is the sad fact? Did you ever cool. Hey before we let you go. Did you have a cool <hes> like traffic name like rich freeway now he's unit for that. Was Your name Union for for fifteen units. We're doing the reports. They didn't get to give your real. The name the the the guy that would do the the major report you know he was like take an audio and then he would toss it out to yeah exactly yeah exactly so he when he'd come back he'd always say are aimed at the end of it all right well but you know all is a great guy. He'll go longer with US really well. Knack for Paul into a union for thank you for joining me and John me about L._A.. Traffic Seventy nine hundred zero five south starting you still got it the mazing some much to break down and dissect the text sound attacks that game in the great sound though but why does it sound like that when you get the tags recorded on my phone very loud and you know okay cool name rich freeway. I thought that'd be a great name for them. How do you feel about that Greg Traffic Guy Ritchie freeway? I love the name and Mike I have to ask you. You have a lucrative <hes> cigarette sponsorship dealer you like Chesterfield Man or what I mostly Marlboro man but yes cigarette tobacco sponsorships are now what they used to be very fitting. You heard the phlegm in the middle of that sentence going back but you can be bought aww right meaning you smoke Marlboros but cam came to the table right now with endorsement you would switch or anything Indian cigarettes whatever whatever's cheapest yet what would be your guy's name if you guys were traffic is causeway cody. I'll probably that'd be hal a helicopter alliteration. I got Richie freeway. Johnny got a twig offset when he was three and from that day on he was hooked all he wanted to do was Gulf Gulf Gulf. He'd be on the links before school after schools all he ever wanted was to go pro and then one day when he was holding his grandson and thinking about his twelve handicap Johnny realized it just might not happen for him but you know what did happen for him. He switch to Geico and saved a bunch of money on car insurance. So that was good and sell was hanging out with his grandson.

Honestly it really petered out after Moustache I don't I did you didn't really give a very convincing. I you know I'm just trying to talk here. I don't really have associated with Ryugyong growing up that won Miss Universe this university recover nicely from that to pay that was a shocking one sponge on his head Greg Cote for sitting in today for Lebanon. We'll be back Monday radio M._T._v.. You have to check out today. That's all I'm going to say you. Just you have to check out highly questionable today. I'm hosting it. I have no idea what I'm doing but I am hosting it right after <hes> right after we get off the air here. Did you hear Steve Before we open the club. Did your Steve Kerr's comments on Anthony. Davis saying that what Anthony Davis did not good for the League yeah. I didn't hear that I read them. Yeah I'm aware why do you feel about that coming from Steve Kerr. How do you feel about the Messenger on that and how do you feel about the overall message that it's not good? It's not technically good for the league. Yeah I respect Steve Kerr. I I listen a little harder when when he or Popovich or some of the other coaches I respect talk in and he's right I mean the players have taken over the power in <hes> in their steering where they go now and how they get out of contracts and everything. I don't know whether it's bad for the League or not but I certainly respect his opinion in particular we have we have sound here from rising media star Kendrick Perkins. I'm serious. He is fantastic he he does not hold back at all. Here's Kendrick Perkins on Steve Kerr. Nobody has sympathy for the players when they get traded so to me. It works both ways the teams have a commitment to play of the same way of play have a commitment to the team but if you take a guy like Anthony Davis who gave seven great great gifts to the city of New Orleans into their organization and every organization didn't know rich and they was going what is supposed to waste his whole years in wall in every year some different no so so what's the problem with him asking for a train at the heat you know gave his heart and soul to the team because he wanted to go in another direction so I don't see a problem with it and Steve Curve. I'll people man like come on Bro. y'All was rumored Roma the Golden State Warriors it was Roman that they started recruiting Kevin durant before the seems even was oatmeal with so you know was dead gratefully Anthony Davis listen. It's a strong take <hes> he gave them. I'm five and a half seasons at I would actually say give them like four and a half seasons because he was often injured and trade is a little bit different than you know Kevin Durant deciding once he is honored his contract to go to the Golden State. Warriors is a free agent right you know why should we criticize the players the listen there's an agreement here. Here's your contract you signed it onto the contract right right and but we're in an age now and I don't know if it was invented in two thousand ten where Dwayne Wade managed is to bring Lebron James and Chris Bosh town but that's certainly pushed forward the whole idea that no players are going to work back channels. They're going to deal with who their friends are and they're going to try to form super teams on their own really without the teams even being involved but the the whole thing that the Pelicans never put the right people around and this and that and you why why why should Anthony Davis waste all his years first off when the contract's up he can go wherever he want but you agreed to the contract so about honoring the contract yeah but Kendrick Perkins argument is players have no say when they're traded when teams aside. We have this contract with US player but that doesn't mean we can't just trade them unbeknown San but they're trying to upgrade their teeth like when you're a free agent you could upgrade your situation if you want and when you own own A._T.. You have the right to upgrade your teeth and there is no loyalty in sports and all players know look. I don't like it either especially what Anthony Davis said which was clearly trying to force himself into one situation I can understand not being happy with New Orleans but hamstring in the the organization is to wear their options are to send you by saying. I'm only going to this place because that's the only place I'll sign my extension. Thus limiting the hall that you can get for player that I think is what needs to end. You know you can say that. This is bad for certain teams teams that lose the the superstars but it's not bad for the league. It wasn't bad for the League when Golden State was a super team and it's not bad fully league. Now I mean look look what we have. Now you know we we have half a dozen teams. Maybe more who can honestly say you know what we have a shot to win the championship not just three by the tap and Sans Because Anthony Davis what he did enforcing his way out Los Angeles would have been terrible for the League of Leonard wasn't a hero and decided to go to the clippers and said I agree with that but but the way it worked out is is what we're looking forward to now is a damned interesting N._B._C.. Will you have Caesar's who released the totals today and you have seven teams who are at fifty wins or over. That's where they set set their their season. That's balance that is balanced <hes> Magic Johnson to thank for that I do these scared away from the Lakers. Thank you magic eye. Let's open up the club. This is our close out the week every week on the Dan Lebatardshow opened up the club. It's an assortment of sounds from the past week. It's been a crazy week around here crazy week and we are all rolling and by we all everyone but me rolling into the GEAR MOS wedding they'll get married and no one's happy the credits. It's weird bike was the first one in the club he's in every meeting. We spend time one on one talking about stuff that is Aaron Rodgers Rogers praising his new coach and slamming his old coach. When I can say is friends guy he really appreciates open conversation and ideas and creativity? Ah what else you got. I know shoot. Don't give them one point two billion vindicated. Do you feel vindicated when he percent more like I said the one point two billion but not one point three point two billion when he was sent more than the rookie contract I know Saddam go give them one point. Two billion who else is in a club like don't run from cops. They don't run from the cops. Baker Mayfield my bed along week around here case you have another miracle. Take on the Lakeland Flying Tigers at six o'clock six o'clock. We'll say oh man.

Hour 1: Im Already Wrong

"This is the Dan Lebatardshow with this to got spot casts. All right got. So I know what a law that view are expecting from me today and it makes me feel honestly like I've either misrepresented myself to you and the audience, which is my failure as a communicator. Or that I have no self-awareness whatsoever and that I wished to be right all the time and the only thing I like more than being right is never being wrong. And so What I want to tell you today is I'm already wrong on Josh Allen. I'm wrong already and will be wrong. That is a quarterback that you can win with. And he played well last night and I don't do the measurements with wins and losses. He had one bad interception. The other one wasn't his fault at all played a very good team by the way it's not just that he played a very good team on the rare three weeks of rest. Okay. which is a bit of a competitive advantage. It's not just that it's not just that he had starters missing God's when it comes to the measurements of these quarterbacks. It's so difficult I'm watching on get up right now they just had In retrospect was two of the right pick over. Herbert. To hasn't played. We have not seen him play a down right was Joe Barrow I mean Yeah I. What I'm saying is that as it comes to quarterback evaluation on television, we're stupid. Okay. Because the very best are largely guessing as well. We Laugh Tanenbaum when he said Herbert is the guy he would take over borough and to what? They'll Polian as I've told you didn't know Lamar Jackson was a quarterback. It's hard is my point and I'm already wrong because it's not just the Josh. Allen is accurate last night it's not just that buffalo's skilled guys. Are really good. It's that the buffalo offense even last night getting throttled and losing for the first time. STUGATZ is super dangerous on third and long they arrays. They reduced the margin fair. You get a lot of teams in third and long and you know that that's going off the field the very best ones the best offenses you're not so sure and. Got, so. Many ways to do it and I'm stunned by how much more accurate. He is stunned because I didn't think that that was something that could be fixed to that degree and they do a great job of sort of using the short stuff to keep is completion percentage good go long dangerously because he's got speed all over the place and he'll throw anywhere because he's got the arm, you can make the argument. He's got the best arm in the entire league. It's him homes. Yes I may Dan he's been in the. Fifties in terms of completion percentages I, two years he's at seventy percent this season Ryan Tannehill was better Josh Allen Last Night Ryan Tannehill is better Josh Allen at this minute. But what I saw from Josh Allen last night in terms of accuracy if he can somehow get the judgment and the recklessness under control it, he doesn't have to even eliminate it's got it's just get it under control some. So He's not the guy that every once in a while does lose your foot pole game because his judgment ends up being bad. One time. It was one time last night. That's whatever chance they had to get back in the game after he had played very well got a ton of drops all over the field. Yeah. I mean. He had nine interceptions a year ago. He has three so far this year but you're right like if he could just minimize those mistakes, the defense didn't play well last night but if you can minimize the turnovers and the mistakes then My my point is. Finally, saw point is I'm already wrong. It's not that I didn't see it before in the first four games. It's that I come in with my baggage of not believing someone can correct accuracy and bad judgment. You haven't done it in twenty years. I've been waiting for you to want something in the way of accuracy. That has taught me this. Like I am married to what was at the very beginning lack of accuracy and bad judgment I knew it. I got married with in any way twenty years later I'm still surprised when it's inaccurate and shows bad judgement. That's on you. That's. My, but you saw you watch you see what I'm saying Tannehill was great last night ten a hell does he have the best power a passer rating in the entire league at the moment better than even these guys like Russell Wilson and Aaron. Rodgers and who are just playing at the total top of the food chain because. What's happened with Ryan Tannehill since he left Miami. Has Been a growth process that if you get it to God's from Josh Allen, he will be better than Ryan Tannehill ten years from now because he's a better athlete by leaps and bounds. If you I didn't think you remember Ryan Tannehill couldn't throw the deep ball. You Remember Ryan Tannehill thought as given the standards of the day less accurate than most quarterback rating this year Wilson's one Aaron. Rodgers to Derek Har- is is in there he's three Josh Allen then Tannahill so. Mean hills having a good year if you WANNA go by Qbr Tanna hills right up there as well. So But so what I'm telling you on these quarterback evaluations is the Tanna went to Tennessee is a backup to Marcus Mariota Tannehill the entire lead told you he wasn't a starter. The entire league said, no thanks. We don't need Ryan Tannehill. He goes there. Mariota does what Mario does, which is questionable. Every game and a lot of six yard passes I mean, basically Mike Tony wasn't a starter in stardom. Originally, what was a team that took him? He was not a starter and now you look at it and you're like Whoa wife fear that I fear what's happening there you're the accuracy I fear the arm strength but What I WANNA get into more with you in the audience is the idea of general gas. Sports media that makes you guys hate us so much because I know won't admit he's wrong is something you really don't like and I wouldn't like it either if I were you but I'm telling you on, Josh Allen is I'm already wrong. It's now just a matter of degrees of how wrong I'm going to be like. Is it going to be that he's going to make me eat to the tune of being an MVP candidate right? Because the talent is it's indisputable too. So that's there were three times last night where a cornerback. was coming in untouched on a blit straight at him. Any swivelled his hips away from him not bothered at all like fly around in elephants tail stuff because he's so big and strong and athletic buys himself time in the pocket, which is surprising to a lot of people. But let's be honest here you're GONNA be any more wrong than you are right now right like this is this is you have reached as far as you want to be in terms of being wrong well, I would have liked to have not come this far. But you're right now. Let's bring it all up after a loss when you guys expected me to come in here, shaking my nipples. You I'm wrong that God and I'm telling you I'm not judging wins and losses. I wasn't judging it four wins in on the fact that he'd won before games because he has plenty of skilled talent team is good stu gods at I'll at Oliver's an afterthought on on that team I love how nuanced you are well thought out. You are because I was prepared to come in and say you're right. It's a degrees of wrong I. Am I am I am largely wrong I am wrong enlarge. This. Wrong. Is already a large kind of wrong because he is absolutely look man what my analysis was after seeing him in a playoff game where he did those dumb things, right? He's running backwards like in overtime or closed overtime like forty yards as lateran the ball throwing across his body deep to a fullback whose double covered like it was a person who didn't look like knew what he was doing he does dumb things. Nobody's not is what I'm saying is not any more they corrected the dumb and can we get bill's management in here to do it for you because I have never seen accuracy in bed judgment corrected in my workplace I stared at it for two decades. How the bills, the masters of this did they coached the dumb of Josh Allen in one year. Because that's all I've been trying to say is. Dom Josh. I I assume they would be major because he's been done the last couple of years stopping dumb and what does he do? He stops being dumb and makes me look dumb. But you're basing your opinion on all people based on your opinion of me nuts, right. It's my world view through still got is absolutely right. I just realized that it a moment of extreme clarity thumb fair resentment and bitterness toward you. It goes in all directions listen to me. America. On Josh Allen I'm already wrong. He lost last night. That's not how measure quarterbacks that dude is dangerous third and long dangerous to gots. There aren't that many guys in the League who are the guys in the league that he did it he converted so many third and longs last night because he was always in third law Patrick Mahomes makes third and fifteen third and short. So does Aaron Rogers, there are certain guys that just do that. Well, that's what happened last night as I was watching hoping very much not to be wrong. I'm like Lee and his kids good. He's good. He's good at it's tightening every once in a while he's GonNa be dumb. Can you win with dumb? Dammit, you've won with them. I have, one with dumb. But we only get to the play offs and then poop out and run thirty yards in the big game in the wrong direction. Donlevatar we will get to what you would do if your wife was attacked by a bison in a moment to God's Holy Bleep, we're off to a terrible store. Live our show with Stugatz. On ESPN RADIO ESPN radio is presented by progressive insurance quoting home insurance just got easier with progressive homequote explorer quote and by all on Progressive Dot Com all guests on the Dan lebatardshow appear via the Shell Pennzoil Performance Lot. I want to bring in our baseball experts billion Chris because I need their help to understand What is Happening this postseason because the braves are mashing, the dodgers have been great best team in baseball all year obviously in ways that nobody disputes but it's short series pandemic anyone can win one of the always the best team never went in anything That's that and God's will now have Kershaw to make fun of here. Soon, he had back spasms he couldn't pitch last. Night the thing that I wanted to ask billion Chris is I was really rooting for the Astros to win the whole thing just because it would have been anarchy twenty twenty like this team that is disliked and you know baseball players who are throwing themselves by the way because there's some sort of victims because they cheated and they got caught because anyone did. Anything to them this earth why I wanted to talk to you about it the specific reason because I, WanNa know how you feel right now we've got a situation where nobody in sports is having a better pandemic than Tampa Bay Tampa Bay has never run sports like this. They've got to champions in town and Tom Brady titletown like hockey must Canada crazy how crazy? Roy. How crazy does it make Canada? That Tampa is holding up the Stanley Cup trophy and no one in America cares and it got buried by all the other sports. We didn't even know when game five in game six were yet and happy did not happy at all not at all. So. Now you've got you've got baseball and Astros they're on the verge of elimination and Dusty Baker gave all the cliches yesterday backs to the wall. Steep mountain to climb tighten our belts. And and then he said we gotta wear big boy pants which coming from a seventy one year old is just weird. We can agree on that, right. Yes, it's weird. Did he's trying to stay young and current you know. I. Mean I mean he's always. been. Dusty Baker's old as hell, but he's always been the guy on road trips in the jazz club dusty. Back in the day was maybe he was one of the cruelest, major? League. Baseball players go sure but he's having you washy take but he's he's seventy one years old. And I want them to win want them to come back from Down Three Oh even though coaching comes on here every week and tells Tampa Bay plays baseball better than anyone has ever played baseball and they're smarter about baseball than anyone's ever been about baseball, and maybe it'll have a world series the finally back that up right and only then will they get? From Scott's if they win the title on something that we're saying is almost totally random. The. Toothpick is what makes. What makes dusty Baker Cool and I'm with? I. Don't know if that's what you're saying. Dan. I'm kind of I'm rooting for the Astros I don't know what I'm doing. So, right they cheated and they're kind of the victim now but it becomes somewhat of an underdog and yes, I find myself rooting for the Astros I have no idea what I'm doing. Why Don't I rose career was a baby but everybody. So meet yet. You cheated you defrauded the League you should have all been suspended. You've got absolutely no punishment. You got no one throwing at. You got no one booing you. You got not even a slap on the wrist you got basically like I, don't even know what to describe what they got. They got their manager fired for no reason. Let me answer that. Led to that question for Chris, if you don't mind. hopefully, you don't mind but I feel like I can answer this for all of us for the entire country bill no one wants to see the braves and the raise. Okay. No one wants to see that. Better yes they are. There's a story line there with the turning astros getting back to the world series. Yes I've heard of people on the Astros I mean. Dude I've been watching this you though I've been watching this race team play for like three weeks straight now, and I still can only name like two players. It on the poll at Lebatardshow, have you been watching the race for three weeks straight and can only name players because I take the under there like I've been loving. How well Tampa Bay plays baseball but all of the all the dudes are the same to me is Rocco Ball, Deli still hanging around there. To. Carlos. Okay hold on a second. Are we gonNa do this or are we going to do sort of? Long ago raised that you know. GRANDPA's as GRANDPA's raise is that what we're GonNa do who else was on those teams I think that's always been the case for the raise. They'd have manager, Joe? Madden they'd have Longoria they had. who was the left fielder that? God. We're old who's in the black guy that went to. Boston. Role. Crawford. Crawford like. Was On those teams had in Upton didn't they? They did have an up. Still Have Matt. Garza. Matt Garza. SOBERS was there. Joyce no that's too recent Ma- choice. Mac Orleans courses like I know saw that this year I saw that you went into the playoffs with the Left handed bat of Matt. Joyce Gardeners in Milwaukee now he's not still in Milwaukee. Still. No No No he's making that up, he's reading the Internet raw he retired but his last four seasons were a milwaukee. Okay. After a cup of Coffee Texas. How long ago? Did he long thousand seventeen? Where Scott Kasmir Scott Kasim still there Oh, great pole. And sobers, you guys already hitting with Ben. Zobrist was Ben Green a plug and play guy for that team to. Bang. Grief. was there's a left fielder Johnny Gomes's see their one point of Johnny. Gomez Yeah David Price was there for the right? Jamie shields. Dame Jane. This is either the best. Or the worst type radio? There's no middle ground Chris Archer for a bit. Now, this this is this is how I want our descend to look. Okay. Into stugatz just throwing out the random names of old baseball players that nobody cares about that billy can laugh it's got saying the Word Ball Deli they add fred McGrath the crime dog no. Pulled the vinnie steer expansion raise out I can't pull out Wade boggs. We're talking about the specific era, the team that made the world series and lost of the phillies that era wait a minute. Wait a minute is that I am good Lord got his all. Did you just pull out of your the Wade boggs raise years. SACO your. Felice. Either All right. Tampa Really GonNa rule sports here like that can't be. That's the most twenty twenty thing ever. Tom Brady is going to be the third of the champions in your town. have. To still have the honour Navarro is catcher right I mean he has to be there how old were you when you were watching these teams? This is Chris and Billy going back and summoning the memories of eight-year-old. I'm going to be honest with you. All the names have been dropping I typed in the two thousand eight roster. That's the one I've been looking. He sobbed Choi Roster. No he was never a ray. Put It on the poll Guillermo. Was He sop Choi Array? Hold that thought let's sell some ads. He was not a Ray Mike was he I'm pretty sure he was Iran I think he was. A Cup of coffee as a ray he soft Choi checking out. He was a cub Marlin dodger and then use a KIA tiger. Balm. Computer. The Kia Tigers. He's on when you type in two thousand, eight raise roster. He's on that list of names though that is weird i. don't know what happened there. Maybe he was there and never actually played I dunno minor league deal. Is Cheating or you guys giving Stu gods he saw Choi Information via the Internet I'm sitting here doing memories off the top of my head that isn't good radio. Mike is totally right about this means longing for the days of was he saw Choi Array is absolutely not good radio. God's definitely remembers it on December first two, thousand, six sub choice signed a minor league contract with the Tampa. Bay, Devil Rays where he was shot to Tampa Bay's everyday first basically decided to return home after failing to make Tampa Bay's forty man Bronco. Pretending to remember that. Time. I was following so sports. So closely back then that I was. Allowing, the meanderings of. Choi through the rays minor league system. So full of it. Donlevatar by the way, Los Launchers is not Mexican Nicaraguan restaurant get it right large longs Stugatz get the hell out of dodge VC's live at our show with this two guys on ESPN radio. So at Lebatardshow is where you reach us via polls got a separate billion Chris because they're talking baseball, it has been fascinating. To see them grow up through a generation of marlins betrayals and like having their hearts broken by a team, you know winning it all and then breaking up to see them become The fans that they've become of baseball has been fun to watch because young people aren't doing baseball this way and it's because of the highs and the lows of the Marlins. What they did that sort of was sticky to them as that game slows down and isn't popular among young people. It's the problem. Baseball has its the demo that they've gotta get their great with new, age media they've been out at head in sports with new age media, but they need badly in desperately to get younger and these braves are not your Brian McKEN. Braves. It's Rahula, Kunia, and he likes to bat flip their the Ronald Ronald Excuse me. Thank you for the correction there billy but we'll get to them in a second I though we've got a wounded bills, Fan, Christine, Lisi, and her beloved Kazu's. And finally, you can't drive south from Detroit and end up in Canada who knew. You. Can do that I thought how can you do that by ferry? By driving south. That's what she said. UNLESS, you want us to drive with area. I just I don't. Is there a ferry? Do that geographically, how do you drive get in the car? You're telling me there's asked to do that. Drum Detroi- I think what you're saying. There are parts of Canada you can get to quicker than you could Detroit. I think what she's saying. If deeply said that I've south, you'll hit Canada. That's how are you understanding that I mean, how are you misunderstanding all of it? All right We'll get back in a second to billy and Chris. I don't know what to God's just did in the middle of that. I? Don't think that you can do that Christine says it's so it's so like, yeah, that's how we operate. Okay Christine are you heartbroken because because you've got a good quarterback, you've got a strong young team you curse at your Bills Television that game I thought I mean four times the titans were starting in you know inside of the bills thirty yard line on a weird Tuesday night with a pandemic fresh team like are you dispirited by last night or you like no I'm encouraged builds footballs been bad for a while and I could see it being good with this quarterback for a while if he's what I think is foreign one I'm okay. And I did not yell I don't know which one are you guys? Is it Mike I might kill you or I could kill you. So I was yelling Duncan Robinson might kill you myself. I did yell So help me God a couple of Times I. I. Might Kill you myself who who were you yelling so I. Guess for you right like that range. This is like you just rabid. Yes, I I used a lot of bad words in a very short amount of time. All Malcolm Butler. Dan for Josh Allen Thank. Don't even no know 'cause you Dan, you made me laugh in your first segment today that was hilarious. You did make me laugh and you brightened my mood. So it'll be a good day. He's a good quarterback. And he's going to get. Better, but he needs to stop making mistakes and I just didn't think he could go from I. Mean You saw him last year you had to have your doubts I would imagine that. The playoff game in Houston I was a lot of oh. Oh. You know a lot of that because I I saw them as like With the field position, they had in that Texans game. If that was Jim Kelly, those would have been like three touchdowns you know and instead of the three field goals. So stuff like that. But I feel really good watching this year and see where they're going and I I whatever they've done with Josh is great. You know having digs in there is also amazing. So I feel okay. You should have just been happy you were in the playoffs last year raby living in those. Jim Kelly. Hold on a second thought because I I just came out and said it they badgered it out of me in the first segment he was not politically correct what I did there but I proclaimed that the bills might coached the dumb out of Josh Allen. Just coach the dumb right out of it. He did things in that Texans game that did not look like a professional quarterback who knew what he was doing in the playoffs that had to be maximum Christine Lisi yelling at the television no, it was. But I think too like he like he kind of free style so much that I think sometimes they just. Were were Kinda willing to see where that went and then sometimes it worked sometimes, it didn't. I don't know if that makes any sense like they were kind of you know let him do his Josh thing and. Crazy or you? Were Yelling Jim Kelly would have you know certain. Terms here last year during the playoff game I thought to myself. Jim Kelly in those guys would have had three touchdowns instead of three field goals. And then you know on third and one hundred does Shawn made that completion in that just turned the game around so. Bad Can I'm sorry not that I hold onto stuff. You sound. Even better, it could be worse you could be a jets. She is wearing that bills barbed wire man that has been a tough team to love that seventeen years without the playoffs and then they ran off the quarterback who got them to the playoffs and he went to another team and they punctured as long with a needle trying to get him on the field because of his ribs, it was titans bill. So I imagine were. City Miracle Highlights. They're just drive you crazy Reich racine I block that out because that was a forward pass. Hang Nice take. Yes. Also also would probably helps is being able to. Have a double secret probation practice at a pandemic during a pandemic when you have an outbreak on your team, maybe that's the secret. Is This I. got a little edge. Also patient zero. So I can't really say I've worked at A. Board material right there. Didn't the tight didn't titans use the pandemic as? They used it as trash talk for the lack rules Zlatan Board Material Dan Ryan Tannehill Ran Ryan. Tannehill did not like what the media was doing in the days and weeks leading up to this bills game. We don't like how you're talking about is he went full Carlos Correa. All right. So Christina, I'm sorry for all of your lost her last name is Liza, just called a recent I don't know why you did. Thank you. Dave is we will get back to billion kristen a second. Yes I. Don't know why you called her Christine reecey other than the fact that you've been slurring for about three straight months as if you're drunk and Mike at a stroke saying Tannahill. What happened everybody just with the general idea of speaking. Maybe it's the second coffee. I WANNA honestly. No. Because now I, don't have time to get two billion Chris because I want to talk baseball with them and we just spent a segment on bills football our second three. Hold that thought let's sell some ads. was. On the rate. Of Two Thousand Eight Let's keep doing it. I. WanNa keep doing it and my father said ads. Please I want to go back to talking about early two thousand raise. They wanted sports around care right more sports. Bills and yesterday's raise I mean. Look I mean there you're all the streets are on fire and everybody's yelling about politics and everyone's throwing feces at each other and here we are sticking sports right here, bills and raise. Contributions of might be Leeson darting to the darkness. You see the white sox might hires their manager. Did cheater. We're going to get to that in a second my buddy poor reprints. This Koala bear of Nice this, they just fired him to get the. They made the playoffs. They were good this year for the first time in a year like a decade. Oh. I gotTA. Talk about that. All right. We're GONNA talk about the secret weapon Rick Renteria. Go Deep Nineties Baseball, we're old enough to remember win that guy. WHO's as old as Tom Cruise secret weapon rick.

ESPN radio is presented by Progressive Insurance News from the Dan Le Batard nation. So someone has just hit us up on the Dr Pepper twitter feed that Wayne Stanfield at raw talent nineteen seventy-six says quote you don't Let. Christine. Full you. She's from western New York. She knows more curse words than anything else. All right. Wow. Really fullness barbed wired Christine reecey. that. Early. Sorry. Billy Chris, I wanNA talk to you about this because Rick Renteria is one of the few athletes that when I was young my family dined with his family. He was the secret weapon, an athlete for the Marlins why are you laughing at that Mike Ryan you have these random family ties to some baseball's latest names you broke bread with the renter is. No it was just him. He was a ball player away from his family like I would consider took him in. I would consider I adopted Rick Renteria for Awhile. I I like an efficiency somewhere no look. Rick rectory. Rick Renteria do not know the back story billy. Do you know the backstory of Rick Renteria I mean it sounds like he was a member of Operation Bethel bonding your. All right. So Rick Renteria was the surprise of spring training for the nineteen ninety-three Marlins. We send yet more into the historic baseball muck. With under the radar, it's like the blindside. Listen. Judge like. Thank you for bringing that back up. Mike. Lord Sports. Arenas. Michael. Your mom, Sandra Bullock. A. So this is the backstory. Rick. Of A huge surprise, a little roly poly guy just with the funny mustache unbelievable that he can be a square person and make the marlins roster out of nowhere the surprise of spring. Training Nineteen Ninety three, he made the roster is the twenty fifth man and that season the beloved little Hispanic guy had hit after hit during what I believe to be ninety four loss season and that season captured the hearts of south Florida. The marlins weren't very good and he was their secret weapon. That was his nickname there posters I think. I think of the Seeker Weapon Billy. Did you have any of those posters? Does this even predate you? Know I remember his great mustache that he had I think I saw him at a champ sports autograph signing. But. Hit after hit he had one hundred career hit. Season he had like twenty one big hits or something like that something would. Remember the mythical season of Nineteen ninety-three Billy Rick Renteria was a hero to you. How old were you? Then I was five turning six I think I remember from that autograph signing at Champs Boards in international law remember rich red to rea- I remember Richie Lewis was there also I remember Jeffco nine was there and there was someone else I can't remember who? was who was like Darrell Whitmore something there was someone there that thought that they were like a big star in the ad like the nineties Oakley, shades on like very difficult for you know a nineteen ninety-three Marlin listening I don't remember who wasn't arrested is distraught the was it? No, no, no, no. Wasn't him remember him. He had the same glasses, my grandfather. Read ahead, sixty seven hits that glorious year by the way the secret weapon selling this one hundred. All right. I, think this is the show I wished to do today is everyone riding with me on this or the next hour of radio as we stick to sports, I want to tell the whole family story of how my lifelong friend Rick Renteria has just been wronged by the Chicago White Sox. But I am not biased about this at all. He was a Hispanic hero and he made them madder after. Of failure and over the next hour, we talk about what a dumb dumb he was always was about analytics.

A tweeter writes in helpfully. When are you guys going to handle? How bad the sound is from Billy Chris Greg Roy? It is unacceptable that you have not fixed this in two weeks. I don't want to become defensive about that criticism. I would just say to you that there are certain challenges that are making our show a little bit more difficult or a lot more difficult than it usually is and tensions are high stu gods just yelled at Roy for the First Time. I've seen in about fifteen years doing this Roy. Through his headsets a in in in a rage Stugotz has been trying to soothe Roy. Sense it has not worked. This is why divorce rates are already up all over the country. Everyone is sick of each other. We are tearing apart at the seams. And let me be defensive on your behalf year to that person who texted in shut the hell up. Okay seriously. Like we're doing the show very difficult conditions and I understand. Everyone is living under very difficult. Conditions Right now but we're actually trying to do a radio show that requires a lot of communication. You will never know from the way we do it but requires a lot of communication and we value the voices of Roy. Billy Chris and Mike and it is hard to get to them right now. So we're doing the best weekend but I'll be defensive and I will tell you shut up adult text us again. Thank you Guillermo at Lebatardshow is show. Tearing apart at the seams at Lebatardshow we've got an update all of these polls. We've had three days of Poles and we haven't gotten to reading any of them. We will do that before. The show is over but Earlier during last week I should say we were talking about just owners billionaires and I was talking about Micky. Arison the Miami Heat owner and many people because We've talked before about the idea. The Greatest Gulf between sports fans and the people who play sports. It's a bridge made of money because it is the place where a lot of judgment rains down and people don't have compassion generally for the millionaires and billionaires. There is something about having money in sports that makes people slightly less human so because I find fascinating and also stressful. What it is that some of these people with big money are enduring right now because no one really prepares for the apocalypse. And I don't know what Micky Arison monthly bills are. I have found fascinating that when I look at this situation. Not taking a side when. I looked at the situation of what's happening with the Miami Heat. And its owners as he ends up having a real crisis on his hands in the cruise industry a cruise industry that. I would make no arguments on behalf of bailing out. I don't believe that a cruise industry or a casino industry especially not cruise industry where the taxes aren't even paid in this country. I would not make any of the arguments on behalf of we should bail out a cruise company. But I do understand how it is that this would be a hugely stressful time. No matter how much money it is that you have the idea that you're basketball franchise has always been a toy. That doesn't even make money. It barely. It barely broke. Even during the Miami Heat's Lebron years now. There is money at the end of this. When you sell the franchise and like Steve Balmer. You end up paying two billion dollars because you WANNA franchise. While I wouldn't make the argument that it was an act of altruism either that Micky arison offered his cruise ships to Donald Trump as hospitals. Because I'm guessing he wants some of the money that would come or the government aid that would come. I'm guessing there. I don't know anything about this but I find the entire situation interesting. Like why wouldn't people imagine that if you're hemorrhaging money that is in the billions not the millions that that would be a stressful thing. No matter who the hell you are especially if you don't see any wearing the distance relief coming and only relief that you that you hope on is what will the country bail me out. We'll the government bail me out like what? What is it about people that they don't understand it? I'm not? I'm not trying to engender sympathy for anybody. I know that many of you and our audience for some reason have limits on your compassion and your empathy and your sympathy. But what is it about what? I'm saying that people can understand that that would be hugely stressful situation. No matter your wealth. Because they're comparison shopping their stress and their situation is way worse than Micky arison situation or more Cuban situation. Those guys the owners wealthy people they have resources that most of us do not have. They are staying nice houses. They're going to have a lot of money whether the Cruise Industry sinks or not Dan no pun intended Micky. Arison is going to be just fine. So they're comparison shopping and saying listen. I don't care about that guy stress and what he has to do and how much money he's GonNa lose. Because I am sitting at home and I'm not working in. My stress is for greater than a billionaire stress. That's what they're doing. If I may just out of curiosity how is it that you know exactly that? Micky Arison is going to be just fine. I'm just curious how it is that you would know that. I understand how you would arrive assumption. But given the given the general state of where we seem to be headed as an economy and given that you've got politicians right now arguing on behalf of we need to keep the economy alive more than we keep our old people alive like. I'm not sure that anybody is okay in this climate. And that's fair to answer your question. I don't know if he's going to be okay but people like myself people just assume that he's going to be okay like. Hey Mickey is GonNa be just fine. Even if his company goes because maybe they think he invested wisely. He's got a lot of money they just don't care they just assume that he's going to be five. Maybe that's totally fair response from you but most people just kind of feel like hey regards what happens here billionaire going to be fine after this is over. Yeah in this country. We just really don't allow billionaires to go broke especially if have those companies and even if you take carnival and the industry the cruise line industry as a whole doesn't get bailed out in the way that it's being reported in the news at it. Might he still has the asset at the Miami Heat. He no like. There's a lot of people that are losing their businesses right now and having to decide whether or not they go with a car micky arison is going to have to decide whether or not he wants to sell the Miami Heat. I would be curious if you guys what what's a number. I would have to put in front of you for it to reach you in terms of what the monthly bills are for someone like Micky Arison to have no income coming in and again. I'm not sitting here trying to make any argument. I would argue the other side. I would not bail out something like the cruise industry here but where would I have to put the number to get anyone's attention on what the monthly bills are? And I understand Steve. Balmer sits here and buys the forum in four hundred million dollars. Cash that that. There's no one listening audience right now. Who has any concept none of what that is to live in that world where you can buy something with four hundred million dollars cash and have it represent only ten percent of your well? Oh I wouldn't want Micky arison problems right now and that's horrible decision. I know it's like a situation that none of us can find a connection point to do. I have to decide whether or not to sell my professional basketball team for a billion dollars. He's got a I'm envious of his parachute but I'm not envious of the personal life decisions that he has to make week weakest problems right now a lot bigger than mine. Not Envious of the problems. I am envious of the parachute that he has but might people would love to trade their problems for Mickey's problems. That's where it comes from. I don't WanNA trade for his problems. I want to trade for his solutions. You want to right now like you want to give you right now and I give you this given what your life is right now. You wake up in the morning you go to a microphone and you've done by the by one o'clock and you're in then. I don't have problems. I'm not the one sitting home. At least not right now. I don't have a problem. We're working. I'm still learning paycheck. But if I wasn't working and our place to place a day to day then yes I would trade those problems for Mickey's problems if you missed any of our interviews.

What's in your Wallet Dan? It's time for straight talk brought to you by straight talk. Wireless SCAPE THE CORONA VIRUS IF you're here to escape the corona virus You will not be able to do so in about fifteen minutes. We will have an expert on. We've got a bunch of questions to get some insight that we need and some answers to our questions One of the questions that still got have has is. Why can't we have Gulf at Lebatardshow on twitter? Put It on the poll Guillermo. Why can't we have Gulf? Yes or no I heard Mike and STU got to talking and STU gods want a movement some petitions. He wants golf. He doesn't understand and I'm yeah I mean I don't know what the limitations are. He doesn't understand why. We can't have goal. I mean we were were headed towards a place where we were just GonNa have golf. We played the first round of the players. Championship up in up in Orlando by that area and so Mike and I were talking yesterday because we miss sports so much that not only do. I think that we should have golf. A two thousand twenty that we should have golf and that there's a way to get golf. Done Two thousand twenty thousand individual sport. I'm not even certain that we shouldn't be playing tennis. I think we should probably be playing tennis and golf at this point like. Just give us the good stuff. Give us the majors at the very least you know. I can be talked into tennis golf. I'm having a really difficult time wrapping my brain around why we just don't have this sport it's a solo sport. Oh but you have the balls going into the pin into the cup and you have other people touching the lead the balls there make a deeper cup. I don't care I I read copper. We can have copper golf clubs. Well guess what you don't have caddies anymore. You can walk. Oh but what about? The TV broadcasts stationary cans. I just saw this. Why don't we have golf now? The let me explain to you with a copper comes in because they closed the golf course here now. I was playing golf like all weekend. Last week I was playing. I was playing by myself. I was not hitting the ball into the cup because I didn't want to reach my hand into the cup. Because that's the one place or touch the flag but why can't we have copper flags and copper cups and why can't the ball go into the cop and go through a little bit of a car wash like a hand sanitizer car wash and just show up on the next day that I'm with you? We have the science for it every time I watch a major. We're moving the holes every round. Why not put a washing machine underneath underneath the pin? There's guts I don't get it and look. I know that we have TV. Broadcast Rights in the masters are big deal fine. We won't play the Masters Under this but at least play the Valero Stugatz. That's it. I listen. We're not asking for the. Us Open. We're not asking for the open championship the PGA The masters. Just gimme the Valero. GimMe two of the top fifty players in the world. GimMe that tournament. I'll watch it. Golf will be the most popular sport in America. Tennis singles is five doubles completely out of the question. The question the question opening up a US Open just as a for a tournament in Connecticut. Somewhere I feel bad for the Bryan brothers. Great Americans loved the Bryan Brothers. But YOU'RE GONNA have to sit this one out just so low and look nobody's going to be fetching balls. Guess what unlimited balls unlimited balls yourself. A ball you don't touch the other person doesn't touch the ball. We can have tennis. This isn't the most difficult thing in the world. There is no reason we shouldn't have at least Gulf or just Valero just give us a Valero. Just the Valera. We'll take it and it's simple. I mean listen there. It's an individual sport both of them except for doubles tennis. Just test everyone. And if you test positive for corona virus you don't get the Valero your body. Temp is ninety nine degrees and that just makes me uncomfortable. You Sing you go ahead. You welcome to the Bolero Tennis Tournament Connecticut. That's all we're asking for man. I feel like you guys didn't have much there other than the desire to say the Valero against at lebatardshow on the twitter poll do you know anyone who fervently follows doubles tennis Bryan Bryan also not even the Bryan brothers followed double status and put it on the poll as well game or at Lebatardshow because festus zeal put on the poll you remember? Festus zeal the former NBA player. He says he misses hugs. What do you miss more Gulf or hugs at Lebatardshow Because I think you golf zealots golf sell. It's a little bit crazy. You were but I can't. I don't have a good argument for what it is. That's to God's and Mike or saying I mean they're right now because we're not totally quarantined as a country until we're totally quarantined as a country. Why can't you roam around big public spaces? I feel like golfers. Don't get near each other. You might have to carry your own bags. You might not be able to have a caddy or anything. But I think I'd like to see that too. Well thank you. I mean I can get a double espresso but I can't watch golf tournament. The Valero giving Alario we are going to have in a second here. A disease and infection expert. That can explain to us. We've got a lot of questions. We're going to ask him some of them next. Espn radio is presented by progressive insurance. Dr Greg Poland.

He's a specialist in infectious disease at the Mayo Clinic. In Minnesota in two thousand sixteen he went on. Jimmy Kimmel live and taught Guillermo Jimmy how to wash their hands. If you remember that I feel for the state of your life regardless for years later Dr Greg. Poland joins us now on ESPN radio. Thank you for making the time doctor. We do in my pleasure a lot of questions. What would you say? Are Some of the biggest mistakes people are making right now? Because they're not properly informed. I think one is that they think they know how to wash their hands but they don't. I have never seen a layperson. Wash their hands properly. I think the second thing is people have a lot of misconceptions about social distancing and about how effective it is. I think the third thing is just how serious this really is. Even younger. People are taking them one at a time. Then what is the correct way as quickly as you can explain it to us? What is the correct later off your hands. What you want to do is walk is wet. Your hands in hand washing is better than hand. Sanitizer you get two soap on your hands and you're going to spend about twenty to thirty seconds washing your palms your thumbs in between your fingers. And here's what everybody forget the fingertips. That's the important part. Because that's what you touch your eyes nose and mouth with and then rents and then turn the handle off. Open the door of the bathroom wherever you are. If you're in a public washroom with the paper towel so water. I Water Warren. The hands hand. Wet Your hand wet then get to soak because you really want the lather. Reason handwashing is superior to hand sanitizers. Is that your physically washing bacteria viruses etc off. The soap has something that decreases surface tension and gets rid of hand. Oils dirt. Nukus whatever's on your hand hand sanitizers cannot penetrate or into dirt. So you know it's if that's all you have use it but hand washing better stugotz. What do you have for the doctor? So when should we use the sanitizer it sanitizer bit overrated doc? Is that what you're saying? No it's just it is not as good as handwashing now. It's better than nothing of course and I would call it second best. You WanNA use a ham sanitizer. That's at least sixty to seventy percent alcohol. You WANNA put a quarter to half dollar size. I see people scored a little. You know peanut size. That's not enough and you're GONNA YOU'RE GONNA wipe it over your hands the same way I demonstrate in the video to get all aspects all surfaces of your hands all right so we feel good about the handwashing here. I know I have a bunch of questions. I know. Our staff has a bunch of questions because no one is certain what to do here. Doc I'll start with the mail like am I supposed to go out and grab the mail from the mailbox because I have heard that I should let that mail or packages sit outside for a couple hours to a day before I go outside. And get it yeah. This is a complicated one because nobody has demonstrated transmission from the Mail on the other hand. We know that the virus can be recovered from paper and it then then it's a question of how long does it actually last on that paper? So you're talking about statistically improbable events and yet they probably occur. So what can you do? Well the safest thing would be exactly as you said if you can expose them to Higher outdoor temperatures to sunlight. That certainly helps. The other thing is open your mail and then go wash your hands. Billy what do you have for Dr Greg Poland specialists in infectious disease at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota? Ostriches first off. I'm a crazy person. So you're wherever that I go to wash my hands. And here's some of the things that concern me. One eye open up the sink right my hands dirty when I opened up the sink so I try to do it with my elbow. But I've been opening doors and pushing buttons with elbow so I feel like I'm dirty it so then I washed my ange rate and then I have to close the which is now probably infected. Because I touched it before the that my dirty handwrite dirty Elmo and then if I want to get something driver hands. I've touched that with my dirty hands so if I go to touch paper towels regular towels to dry my hands with infected with the germs that I just watched off my hand previous so so it depends on whether you're in your own home or you're in a public washroom. Public washrooms are the worst they are danger zones for these viruses bacteria etc so you can go ahead and turn the water on with your bare hand. Wash your hands. But then turn the water faucet off with the paper towel. Exit the bathroom with the paper towel in your own home. You might have paper towels right next to your sink so that you can open and turn on and turn off the water using Napkins paper towel. Whatever so you're not doing exactly what you're talking about which is re- contaminated Gas Nozzles Supermarket. Debit machines. How dangerous those things you know again. No no way to quantitative but we do know this and I know what I'm about to say sounds really simple but but just bear with me a minute. There's nothing exotic about this virus. You cannot get infected if you don't breathe it in or don't introduce it to your body with your fingers. There's only two ways that we know of so think through what that means if I don't breathe it in okay I'm socially distance I'm not around sick people maybe even in public. I'm worrying self-made facemask. Cause and we can go back to it but that does help Those are those are really important. Things that that people can do and they tend to think. Well let's not very high tech. It's not gonNA help me but it really does help. And then the other thing that we talked about is washing your hands. You now prevented the only two ways in which you can get infected holding your breath around. People is helpful. Well he's interesting. My wife and I were talking about that when we were out running last night. And we said you know. What if we're if we're going to run by anybody and they're coughing or anything you know we're GONNA maintain a ten foot distance because these large respiratory droplets can't go that far. And Yeah you might hold your breath for a second or two until you pass that person billy. What do you have for Dr Greg Poland specialists in infectious disease at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota? So if I every time I enter my house do I need to change my clothes or might just being crazy person by doing that because I go outside and on my clothes and I'm like well germs. Let me take this off. Let me put this in the hamper. But then when I leave again on my outside close on again so that doing anything or it might just be neurotic. Let me let me approach this way what I'm recommending to people is what I call can textually appropriate layers of protection so find a healthcare worker? You Bet you change your clothes in the garage and wash those clothes Ideally even before you get in your car onto public transportation or how however you're getting back and forth from work for you and I No particular reason to do that now. Nobody enters my house including me without washing my hand. Nobody comes into the house without sanitizing their hands. Nobody comes into my house. Who's ill I'm not I? I am not around other people. Nobody gets within six to ten feet of me. Those are the things that we can do now. The the surfaces that you're talking about you can hardly help touching if you're going grocery shopping or putting gas in your car. It's okay to touch those. It's not going to be absorbed through your skin. But here's the key thing you gotta sanitize your hands before you start touching things you're gonNA touch repeatedly or before you touch your face or eat. Chris. What do you have for Dr Craig Greg Poland again specialist in infectious disease at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota a doctor? Can I burn my two year old to our house in a neighborhood that has a pool a community pool? Obviously we're not touching any of the lounge chairs or anything but can I bring my daughter to the pool safely. If we're not touching you know we don't. We don't have any evidence that you know. Unlike something like polio. Back in the fifties or other water borne diseases that corona virus would be would be spread that way. The issue is this How likely is your kids to be in the pool and inhale water where I see people sneezing and coughing and water getting into their nose or mouth and they spit out into the water. How likely are you to come in con- into contact with that right away depends on whether the pools coordinated or salt water so? I personally don't think that's a great idea. I don't think it's very likely that you can sort of in a bubble walk into that community pool. Dunked yourself awhile in the water get out not touch anything not come into contact with anybody. I I just think. That's an avoidable risk factor. What are some of the best questions? You're getting what are the questions? Were not asking that we should one of them is just how serious. This is You know when you when you look at it Just two days ago in the US we had about thirty thousand cases. We've got almost fifty five thousand cases. Two days later we had four hundred dead. That's doubled in two days and I think people don't have a full appreciation that and this is a bit of a difficult concept but it goes this way what you're seeing now reflects events. That happened two to four weeks ago so we are not even at the peak of this thing yet so to begin talking about well. We'RE GONNA I. I've done this for two weeks. I'M GONNA start to relax. A little bit would be mistake because there is this two to four week lag period between people getting exposed getting symptomatic getting sick enough to no longer be outside or or expose themselves to other people and then finally have having to be admitted to the hospital. I think the other thing is this false notion. Younger people are not at risk. It's true that they're not dying. At the level people my age and older are but fifty percents of the cases in the state of New York for example are between the ages of eighteen and forty nine forty percent of the first twenty five hundred patients admitted to hospitals in the US. Were between eighteen and fifty so this this misperception that. I'm young I'm invincible. I'm not gonNA have any any particular problems. Just not true. How bad do you project this getting? Well it's really hard to know and I get asked that a lot in it gives me new of sympathy for the weather man but you know let me just give you the outside scenario. These are the speedy fees numbers. Okay not mind the CDC estimate is that if we do not engage in the strict social distancing handwashing everything we've talked about by December. We could have a hundred and sixty two. Two hundred million Americans infected with twenty one million of them sick enough to be hospitalized in two hundred thousand to one point seven million debt. So let's let's not fool ourselves. This is not just the flu. This is more serious than that. It is affecting People and being transmitted in growing exponentially it has not mutated in any negative way but it nonetheless causes considerable morbidity and mortality especially in the older people or people who have chronic medical problems. The one the one other thing I would caution against is you hear a lot of really Leaning statements about drugs that are being tried that worked in such and such disease etc. Please be really careful about that. These have to go through clinical trials before we know that they help and not cause harm just because the drug helps in one disease doesn't mean that it won't harm in another disease it has to be carefully studied first. Stugotz one last question for Dr Greg Poland. Yeah dock with all that being said and understanding the serious nature of. What's going on here? Should we be playing the Valero Open? Golf Talk I mean I don't I don't know a lot about that. I've hardly had time to watch TV or or hear any media. But I think the principle is this. You do not want to bring groups of people together where you're going to magnify and amplify transmission that we had all the founder. It's called Valero. It's like two of the top fifty in the world. I mean it's golf. We're not near each other. Give us your comfort is if you can maintain you know six to ten foot distance. Go for it yes thank you Dr. We appreciate the time all right guys. Thanks Duck yes. This is from Tiger King. Right here. I am told that it's lips thank you. We will get some facts on his documentary. We've got an expert coming on in ten minutes. Who really embedded himself in the life of all of these crazy people who are being featured in tiger king. Apparently this is a lot of lip. Synching though Mike Ryan and a lot of other people have been fooled by this guy. Singing voice wait a second. Yeah that's singing. Voice isn't coming out of JOE EXOTIC coming out of Joe Exotic. I refuse to believe then. Voice of an angel his lyrics define us in the next hour. We will find out why it is STU gods. His father yelled at him. And yes we will get to that in a little bit. But as I said we've been talking about this tiger king documentary. Put IT on the poll. Guillermo please at Lebatardshow did this thing. Not Get real for you until three hundred sixty five waffle house waffle house restaurant closed. But what are some of the things got you want to know because we've been talking about this Netflix documentary? It's about exotic animal. Owners big cat owners primarily and they're just crazy people crazy people we've never had. I think what's happening here is a lot of us are being enlighten to what this world is. And it's just basically the private zoo world and it doesn't seem like you can exist in and be any kind of sane. So what kind of questions do you want to know? Fr from this gentleman who has been immersed in all of these worlds for a while now and his super informed. Because we're GONNA talk to him in about ten minutes. Well I have to episodes to go so this could be tricky for me but I am interested. I want more information on this angel investor. And what happens with him? He apparently comes in to save the day to save. Joe EXOTICA I want to know if the EXOTICA EXOTICA an exotic erotica just did their Hashtag looking at him. Just looking at him. I understand why it is. You would arrive at that conclusion because he is as erotic as he is exotic right. I want to know if the animal reserve that wife. If she actually did kill her husband like Joe Joe Proclaim. She did many many times. They made a video about it. So I'm interested in that as well. Okay so again. It's it's part comedy and it's also about a murder attempt and possibly a disappearance as well that's next.
