"Danny Murtaugh was the manager because the Pirates won the pennant in 1960. And Mark Simon will beyond with us later, Hey, said Murtaugh said that he had a stand sideways on the mound wouldn't get knocked off the mountain. He talked to his pictures. So that was not it they had. They had two All Star games for a few years back then, which seems really odd, But they did. And and Candlestick was very young ballpark and the two games that year were in these classic. You know, the classic Fenway and the next great Ballpark, Candlestick in house that didn't quite live up to it right away to remember what happened in the in the in the All Star Game at Fenway that year. No, no, I don't It was a 1 to 1 tie. It started raining in the ninth, and they called it off. Well, well. Game. Okay. All right. Remember two All Star games and after a few years, you know, they just didn't want to do it anymore. And that that was the end of it. Well, I don't remember that either. Believe me. I was just checking this afternoon in 1967 and this one is in Anaheim. I remember this one and Tony Perez hit a home run. I think in the 15th inning I love Kathy to win the game 2 to 1/2 of that. Yeah, I was at that game. I was home from college from Cal, and we've got tickets and you know, we're nationally guys were going out to Anaheim Hostile territory, And we've got Lou Brock Clemente Aaronson paid and we got Dick Allen. And you know Marshall started the game. Uh, amazing came off the maze and Pete Rose. You're on the bench with Ernie Banks mean we're thinking, man, this is going to be We couldn't wait for that for that night, and you know it. It was a great game in its own way was it was wonder one going into the 15 But, uh, you know, he couldn't have couldn't have expected the way that thing. That thing came down. Any of American leaders made amazing times with American League to with, you know Brooks Robinson and yes and Mantle and kill everyone believe in all those guys. So it was a pitching was about pitching. Marshall is great. Gibson Drysdale were great Seaver. And ER and Richie Allen hit a homer in that game. I did enjoy that a lot in the sixties, the Golden era baseball. Absolutely the best, but I I always thought so, Yeah. 1989. Ah, Rick Russia ll pitches to Bo Jackson and that that's one of the lead. That's like the Reggie Jackson home run A Tiger stadium. Bo Jackson just crushes it to start the game. Yeah, I was covering that game. And you know, sometimes before a game, you might For some reason he might miss the first pitch. He might be in the bathroom in your little lake in the food or getting some coffee or whatever. And I I was not gonna miss one moment of Bo Jackson. From what we've seen leading up to that game from him. You know, he's making these insane catches and throws like you've never seen hitting 500 foot homers and it's like Good Lord. Then he does that. He added a ton. I forget where Round up. It was just massive. And even even then he got for it. That's that game, which we were all grateful to see, which is so rare that that happens today. But, uh, big area presence in that game well, 34 hitters for the National League. Where will Clark and Kevin Mitchell Nice. Stuart started for the for the American League? Fabulous, fabulous. Ah, couple of things about this this date and baseball history. The the warning track this the first time Yankee Stadium, they put a morning track. A similar warning track up to that point, you could run into a cement wall. It was no problem. It's so funny when you look back on things in the the old Forbes field in Pittsburgh Center field was like, you know, it wasn't even in Pennsylvania. I don't think they had They had a batting cage out there. That's right. If you happen to hit 1 18 miles it a rattle around out there, and the guy will find it or whatever. And and in Yankee Stadium. You know, the monuments were famous there and you know what? Gary? Ruth and DiMaggio and and they were in play for many years. They're just out there you could you are the ball could get lost out there. Another story was I used to hide a ball behind the monuments. Haitian needed one. Yeah, you couldn't find the other one. You could have the one behind the money, but so that was 1949. But you know, Pete Reserve the You know the next Mickey man. You know, you run into these cement walls with skull fractures and all that. That kind of you know, I was thinking today and this is sort of crazy off the wall. But, you know, baseball is so unique about Joe DiMaggio marrying Marilyn Monroe. About that when you think about it. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, we've never seen way. See anything like that. I mean, you know that Tom Brady doesn't even I can't even remember his wife's name is Alice. Yeah, yeah. You know, it's a great, wonderful, very attractive marriage. But I mean, this was when you talk about Iconic herrings in life. Really, of my goodness. Yeah, Just just remarkable. I mean, what a going A great A great thing again, you know, was a great thing for baseball in for Hollywood. Yeah, it was amazing. I just I just thought about that. The last thing that I'll mention, Actually, we could do this all night and it's it's just a pleasure to talk about it. We may actually be doing a pregame believe it or not in a couple of weeks. You know that would be leveling with every game Saturday and Sunday. We got one more Saturday's show next weekend, but it's also marks the passing of Bob Shepherd, the great voice of the New York Giants football and, of course in Yankees in Yankee Stadium. I got to meet him in a special man. Oh, yeah. I mean, you know, go walking into Yankee Stadium off the subway, where you smelling the pretzels and you can hear the organist Eddy Lleyton and you can hear Bob Sheppard's voice. I mean, you're just, uh, just loved up Shepherd once compared to Yankee Stadium to Ah, you know, ST Patrick's Cathedral. Because it was that it was a cathedral to him and had had a dignity to it..

These days interview was recorded pre covert nineteen so while we don't specifically discuss it. This episode is very timely. Since as you've I'm sure read. One of the areas most affected by this horrific disease. Is Our food supply chain specifically the animal food supply chain. The conditions are deplorable for both the animals and humans at these meat processing plants and the health of both is compromised. Daily Ethan discusses in detail. I was company is improving the efficiency the safety the health and the environmental impact of his beyond meat. Production and the benefits are huge. We know that the average consumer even those who eat animal meat are aware and very concerned about these health and social issues. As Ethan says I believe there is a new dawn for American agriculture. And this conversation is our awakening our in fact just last week. Jim Cramer the host of mad money on. Cnbc said that beyond meat is a small company but so Amazon so was facebook and so was Google and then he goes on to say and I quote. It's all going beyond meets way and what is beyond me doing. They're cutting prices. I think the pandemic is saying start eating plant based Kramer continues to go on to say that the rising demand for plant based protein will not be a passing fad and that. There's no hobby here. The Hobby is going to end up being meet man. Jim You are talking our language. I think the pandemic is saying start eating plant based eating meats going to become a hobby love it? Here's to having the heart of a hero and not being afraid to challenge the status quo in fact instead of being divisive it's time we collectively come together and work to solve these problems on behalf of the animals the longevity of our planet and our own health it is my mission and it's the mission and driving force for my friend. Ethan Brown all right here. We are season two of the the plant. Strong podcast I am here with Ethan Brown. The CEO of beyond me. And I want you to know and I'm at World Headquarters for beyond me. Where exactly are we? So we're going to California el Segundo AB- like what two miles from the airport? Exactly yeah I mean it was the most. This is the easiest drive ever made from the airport and season to just so you know the whole theme is heart of a hero and we're really trying to identify People that are changing the game and and that's who were having an inviting on season two of the Pike Aston. You probably more than just about anybody. I know are changing the game in a multitude of ways and I and I wanna get into that so you are truly a game changer. Speaking of the game game changers. Have you seen the movie I have in before I even get into that? I mean I just WanNa share on August the impact you and your family out on my own life and just how much a fan of yours and incredibly sincere. I've watched forks over knives yet more times than I can count Shared it with more people than I can count And you don't want. We got a chance to connect few years back. It was a terrific thing for me. No I've been a big fan of yours for a long time to be here being everybody. You surreal well. I I'm flattered. Thank you and so in the game changers. You saw it. Did you like it. I love that movie. Yes in fact. You're so intimately viable that but I'm having to stop myself showing you a clip. Because it's almost every time someone comes to my office injured in this subject. But of course that would be lost on you because you set the record for most I think most downloaded most downloads of a documentary ever and they broke it in a little over a week. It's remarkable and it resonates so strongly with me for so many of the reasons that it also resonates with you of course But even as somebody's building business it was really important for me to see this You know growing up we were very much exposed to the got milk campaign. I mean that was something that was a big part of culture and and maybe less so today but you know the use of athletes to promote a particular type of animal-based protein with something the California Milk Board. Did you know very well And and that was something that because of my own background and interest in the milk industry. My family was doing I paid a lot of to the got milk campaign with came time for me to start my own company I. She hired the original sponsor of that campaign. I'm Jeff Manning on the California Milk Board. He had left since you grew up on a dairy farm. I grew up in the city. Okay on my dad's a professor and we He he didn't like being in the city and so he wanted to have a place to recreate because he grew up in the country and so got a farm Very early on in my childhood and he's kind of entrepreneurial so ultimately we get wholesale cattle there Dairy but but he rate so To went back and found the person who who wrote the original mandate for the got milk campaign of someone named Jeff Manning on the California Milk Board and that led to that campaign with milk mustache. And you know Bo Jackson Derek. Jeter et CETERA. And so I asked him to come work with me so we were together for a number of years creating the future protein campaign that we have here on the go beyond campaign and it's been been remarkable woman named Beth. Moskowitz has brought in more athletes. I can count Really remarkable career having or you know deandre Jordan Deandre Hopkins Chris Paul. They are now getting behind the idea. That a plant based Diet is the best performance and so game changers just nails that yeah and and there's a scene in there with the Tennessee. Titans football players and chastity. Morgan yes is cooking. I think some burgers on a grill. Those beyond Meat Burger. Yes we love the the Morgan's and all they're doing and I think that's just a great story and you're seeing that Clifford throughout the NFL particularly NBA. Where lightness quickness is so important you seeing so many. Nba Athletes turn to a plant based Diet for no other reason improve the performance. They also love the social aspect of it. They love the disruptive Challenger. Let's let's not do things the way we used to do. Let's bring something forward in this. World is a little better for for their kids. The challenge the status quo. Yeah there's a big big part of that

"I'm just standing here and I I'm I'm not trying to bother anyone. And he said Go. Wait in the DUGOUT. I'll bring him out here so now. I'm very concerned because if I go out in the way to the dug-out Hey I'm I know he doesn't really have the right to tell me this and be he may very well not bringing out and you know I. I may not get the job that an entire job. I was sent there to be bad dead. So the Media Relations Guy who? You'll remember that you buster a guy named Chuck lahser strong chuck. Oh Yeah Yep yeah he comes over to me. He's he's referring and he very quietly tested me. You didn't do anything wrong. Please give me a favor. Go wait in the dugout. I promise you I will bring tracks a lot too so I said okay so I go out and I'm sitting in the dugout now and I'm waiting for Steve Trachsel. Two minutes later Steve Bushel and he looked at me and he clearly has been told that he should say that he sorry to me and so he gave me what can only be described as the worst apology in the history of mankind. He Basically Says No. I probably shouldn't have done that. Sorry I yelled out here but you know we got too many because hanging around here anyway and you're not doing anything just sitting there bothering everybody. Whatever it was so he is apology was infinitely rest. Pleasant initial experience was to begin with but in the end. You did come out. He did cannot talk show and all was well but that was the day that Steve. We shall threw me out of the clubhouse all right. Well tell me the next time. He saw Steve Bushel show. What was that like or head? He moved on no he even remembered it. So I was not a regular presence in that clubhouse I covered primarily football or basketball in town and I would cover baseball during the period of time. Between the end of like the The Bulls Run. Which in those days. They went to the finals every year that I was covering them At least those in those early years and then when the bears would go to training camp so it was only about six weeks in that time so I was not around that much and I wasn't around regularly and when I I again to is ever lasting credit every other interaction I've ever had with him limited though they were very pleasant he was he was he certainly brought it up again. I certainly never brought it up again and I never had any issue with him and that's why I wanted to. I feel bad selling it. No this is now almost thirty years later. I think if I remember correctly that might have been the year at the season was going to get called off by the strike and everyone would be with And if it wasn't it was the year before the cubs were really bad and it was just the dog days of summer and he was frustrated. So I really never took it personally and I never go essentially with the bad guy but it was definitely. I think most of the young reporter. That's an experience to help you have to have. I really bad kinda running uncomfortable running with a player in backwards minds. There are many ways sort of appreciate it all these years. I tell journalism students all the time. It's not personal. They don't know you they don't know where you're from. They don't care they which is fine And so if you get that sort of reaction it's not about you when you were Chicago. Bo Jackson was a star on the white sox. What he got on him. Well I have to remarkable stories about covering both so bo came to Chicago. After they had he was the first player ever to play Major League baseball with an artificial he considering his physical condition he was remarkable. He was he was still a physical specimen to behold and his star power was extraordinary story. I have for you as I went on a road trip with the white sox because they were going to clinch the division so this would have been ninety three the yearly one. What I believe. We're still van the Al West and we went to Oakland and they were on the verge of locking up the division so that the station sent me on the road to cover it and we were staying in a hotel airport. An Airport hotel very near the ballpark and there was a shuttle bus. They would take you from the hotel to the Ballpark and I get on the shuttle bus. And I'm expecting it just to be a bunch of other reporters or whatever it was for reasons I will never understand it. Wor To people on the shuttle me and Bo Jackson. And we're writing this little shuttle to the ballpark which is very short ride. I don't recall exactly how long was couldn't have been more than ten minutes and we barely said a word to each other. He didn't know me I certainly knew who he was was an icon. But it wasn't as though we were friendly so I just sort of nodded and said hello. Are we sat there and enrolled the very short ride over to the Ballpark? But what I remember when we pulled into the parking lot people somehow knew that he was on this shuttle because we got so rounded. I mean fans so rounded the shuttle and they were counting on the windows and all you could see why didn't do. It was just a regular airport shuttle. I have no idea. I don't Mean Airport Hotel subtle. I've no earthly idea. Why Bo Jackson was honest with me but for whatever reason he was and so security is coming over to try and get him off of the bus. And I'm Dan Schorr and are getting off until he had just waiting in there and staring at these people and it was a genuinely in all honesty we can genuinely frightening moment and I turned it him and I said what is like for this to be your life everywhere you go. And he looked at me with a very tired he looked. He looked drained. He gave me a very tired expression and he said you will never understand until you walk a mile in my shoes. Which which way he said it was. I'll never forget that as long as I live. And and we just waited and they got security there and they got off the shuttle and all the people asked him and I buy my self. Just walk in the ballpark trespassing. Nothing probably became the bombs and story a day that I will never forget. It gave me a really different understanding covered Michael Jordan for a long time Michael was always an extremely controlled environments. I was never in a I never saw him in a place where he weighs in a public setting and and there was really no one in charge like security was coming out to deal with it but there were tons and tons of people that were there long before there. Was anyone in a yellow jacket and again. I don't know how this happened but I remember it like it was yesterday. So that's my first story. My other story AM I. Do you have a bleep? Something I tell you the story go ahead arena clubhouse we're in the clubhouse after a white SOx game run-of-the-mill right night I saw tonight game and there's a play in this game in which George Bell. I think it was one of the other big on. The White Sox is called out based upon the infield fly rule. So we are now in the clubhouse. Afterwards we're waiting for the kitchen. Whoever catch that game might have been check. Mcdowell. Alex Fernandez wait. Thanks for a really good team. And we're all all. The reporters are gathered around waiting for the Patriots. Come out and you can hear Bo. Jackson is complaining like crazy and loudly about the infield fly rule. He had never heard of such a thing in his entire life. And who obviously ever came up with this rule had never heard of baseball. Didn't know anything about baseball. Didn't play baseball. Even raged about the infield viral and there was a legendary sports writer in Chicago named Bill. Gleason who always wore hats and always had assumed Gar and build recent and just turned around because no one else is going to say a word. He's Jackson Ability. She didn't didn't give a damn and bill agrees and turns around and says you know blow. It's only been the rule for ninety nine years and it was an unforgettable moment and you know I'm probably a twenty five year old before time. Remember thinking Oh my God. He's the most amazing thing I've ever seen in person and no one said anything then everyone trying to walk around with their business but but that was one of the most. Another of the most memorable experiences ever had an a major league. Clubhouse was no more serious with that was both Reno. He didn't say anything. There's there's not much you can say to build recent. Those was a World War. Two veteran anyways he had a cigar in his hand and and he wasn't taking that he had been eighty at the time So I mean there's wasn't going to be a confrontation. I don't have any recollection of really saying anything I think. He somewhat dismissive of the entire thing But it was a it was a. It was a unforgettable moment abilities and was unbelievable. Figure those were days before. Espn had all of our talk shows on the air there was a show called the sports writers on TV that you may remember with Jobs and bill gleason and Rick Calendar and they would also it around and smoke cigars until sports stories and gleason was a part of that so he was a bit of a sort of a cultural icon at the time and That's that's a day that I will never forget Stephen. Making the hiccups things that happened in that clubhouse but the Comiskey Park another one I can tell you from. Nightclubs is the day that the news came out. It could have killed themselves. Was the lead singer of Nirvana Legendary Musician. Jack McDowell who was a star pitcher on the White Sox Was also a musician. You may remember and there was once very controversial story in Chicago that he played a concert in the afternoon. Then pitch that night and it turned into a very big deal but anyway he was very music on. I remember walking over to his locker and being the person who told him that and then being very emotional in his response and gave me an unbelievable. What are the best interviews I ever did in my career And I had I contributed nothing to I was the one who informed him of this news and he spoke very emotionally so while the cubs were always the Certainly now again reestablish themselves as a three minute team in town in the days that I was covering sports in Chicago by and large because were terrible and the white sox were really good. Those are really good team so the teams that I was around. Most who had Frank Thomas and Robin Ventura Ron Carter vice versa. Catching them I really liked is again..

"So if the Indians do indeed decide they they were gonNA shock him before. The season starts sometime this spring. I think there's a real chance because he can still impacts theoretically to pennant races that you could obtain more than you would have gotten for him. Otherwise because there's a larger applicant pool for Lack of a better term so it's an interesting dynamic but what I would say is the Indians are in a position to win just like a lot of other teams are if I were running the organization. It's easy for me to say. It's not my money. If I were running the organization I would go for because they have a really smart and astute analytic staff and they might be able to maximize the roster over the course of eighty two game season and be one of those hypothetical seven teams in the playoffs and that could drive revenue in a good way for them. Obviously there they've been started over the last two years and you know they don't draw well in attendance and all the rest of my opinion is that they should hang onto him. Play out the season because they're going to have good chances. Anybody make the playoffs for the most part. Yeah an eighty two game season would greatly level the playing field to me in baseball because typically over one hundred sixty two games the the inherent strengths weaknesses. The depth of organizations manifest themselves but over eighty two games. It's much more Rather than a two hundred LAP NASCAR race it's GonNa feel more like ten LAP NASCAR race. Which is why Executives managers have told me last couple of days. There is going to feel. There's going to be a greater sense of urgency in these games. If in fact they play out no question bus serving the with the team. The kind of team that shortened season benefits the most by far or the underdog because over the course of one hundred and sixty two game season you obviously a lot more time to separate the wheat from the chaff. You have a lot more time to sort a judge which rosters have the requisite depth. And which ones don't like teams like for example the padres or the White Sox in my judgment are teams. That have a really good chance of making the postseason in a shortened season. That probably wouldn't if the season was at full length. And because teams that are in contention you might all of a sudden a lot more opportunity to trade Francisco Indoor because those other teams that otherwise probably would not have been interested and I tell you what one team to watch along those lines. I think it'd be very well. Suited the Tampa Bay rays they got a deep bullpen. They have a deep roster. We don't typically think of them as being a world series contender but in a shortened season. I think it levels the playing field somewhat for them against a team like the Yankees. Def definitely just quickly about the race. It definitely could because I think especially with an expanded post-season you're looking at death in when it comes to the pitching both the starters and relievers as being absolutely vital last year the nationals were able to win the world series primarily using only three pitchers in the postseason. You're not gonNA be able to do that if you add a couple of games and an extra round of the postseason. I like. The rain will be very well positioned should they? Should they get in? So we got the first round of conversation between the player. Sociation Major League Baseball on Tuesday and thank God him there. No statements released there. Were no dictum put out. There was no leaking that I really know that was obviously As a sort of pseudo media member that was obviously what bothered me most earlier this week. I understand that this is a reality of business. It's reality in baseball. And right now given the contentious relationship between the Union and the League these things. These things are just going to happen but these things need to happen behind closed doors now more than ever at this at this juncture baseball fans like myself are not interested in hearing millionaires and billionaires quibble over money. They're just not major league baseball with eleven billion dollars. Last year the average player makes about four and a half million dollars. That's monopoly money for most people and a lot of people are dying to hang onto whatever job they have if they're lucky enough to still have one. So this is the the tone-deaf nature of this is is so extraordinarily glaring for me a couple of weeks ago. Buster you brought this up for the first time and this is coming down the pike. There's a real chance that money is going to be a central issue and I sort of sort of laugh. It off thinking. There's no way they're that naive well. It looks like you are right and I was wrong and my hope is that you know the. There's enough adults in the room to be able to get to the bottom of this in in a sensible way and not using the media as a club against each other especially as it relates to the finances. It's enough to drive you crazy. You know Hembo another thing. That was discouraging. The way that it played out the last forty eight hours to me was the fact that it felt like that. These two sides were you in their conversations. Were just getting started. And you're thinking you couldn't have been talking the last six weeks you couldn't have I get it the relationship's not great and we don't know exactly what the context is going to be but you couldn't have been having those discussions and trying to sort of Come up with solutions in the last six weeks. They in my opinion have already squandered a lot of time. They may need a lot of time. I Major League. Baseball has the last two months has been you know a US in the United States in February. Pretend like this is not coming down the fight. We we know what we half year. The the organizations that come out on top are the ones that are going to be full. `word thinking a major league. Baseball is literally. It was just it too long ago bus. That major league baseball unveiled this crazy plan. You know with the different hub cities in Arizona and all the rest of it like that was not that long ago that that's the time they should have been laying the ground for realistic season. That begins sometime in July. I'm with you the other thing I would say quickly but I think is totally being missed in this for all this talk about the money money. Money right gag me enough money already but most important thing by a factor of one hundred is safety player safety staff safety. I'm not hearing any discussion right now about that. That's the only thing that matters because without those principles being in place without players and staff members being safe and protected and they're being enough parameters for us to do this realistically and safely who cares how you're splitting money. You're not splitting any money if we're not playing baseball because everyone gets sick. That's so much more important here than anything else and I don't understand why baseball and the union can't get a can't get out of their own way all right Hembo. Thanks for doing this. Go find a wild party someplace. Lots of those going around these Dave Buster's later boys. Greenberg.

We've always joked about how we've never gotten confirmation about what he's role on get up is and whether or not we actually got confirmation that. He's the head Honcho and Hembo. We interviewed Greenie. Okay and before we got started with him. I asked him to define your role on the show. And this is the not sent me Before we got going he said I would describe his role in a word as Frivolous I. Just keep him around. Because he's a wild partier and I need that in my life. That's your role. According to your friend Mike Greenberg through. We're definitely GONNA have to change my answer. Then I can no longer be defined as the head Honcho of get up on baseball.

I like it all right So before we dive into the twists and turns in the baseball negotiation. Let's talk about a couple of specifics that could be involved with a baseball element of it. First off the Universal D. H. I think you and I would agree. This is just a window into baseball. Future correct I described the universal the age as inevitable when people ask me if I favor it you know like grew up loving the phillies and National League Baseball so in some sense I do enjoy the double switch and those kinds of things that the average baseball fan just doesn't care much about but I think that you're right this is an inevitability and this would be as good a time as any tested one of the questions that I hear general managers now beginning to ask as the possibility. A baseball SORTA SWIRLS IS. What's going to happen with a lot of the player movement Decisions about you know which teams might be looking to dump salary looking to move players in one of the more interesting guys out there Francisco Lind door of the Indians. We knew that going through the wintertime. The Indians listened offers. They decided to keep him going into the two thousand twenty season now. Obviously that context is changed teams. I've spoken with believed that whenever the rosters are no longer frozen the Indians even before the Games begin we'll begin to explore. The question of wins the right time to trade lender. I gotta believe that this is something they have to take a serious look at and the question on the flip side of that from the besides Indian's perspective if you're a team interested in making an acquisition Hembo not knowing how the two thousand twenty season is GonNa play out. How will that affect the offer resources? Did you would have to make to Gannan. All Star shortstop sure because with a minor league on hold like how how were we rating the value of those players. There's there's a lot of impact here. I think there was already no chance that the Indians would have any chance that extend for instance Galindo themselves before the pandemic. I think it goes without saying that. The chances exactly zero now I think there could probably approximately as many as two dozen teens though should be going for in a shortened season there. There's GonNa be more Appetite and opportunity.

So till this day, all of my hunting skills, all of my hunting knowledge, that I know is a credit of George p man dead or alive. He he passed away about six years ago, he passed away about six seven years ago. Yes. But he taught me how to hunt. When you were coming up through your professional career. Did you? Did you speak openly about hunting, or was it just not something that came up or you shied away from talking about it? I spoke openly about hunting to people that, that wanted to talk hunting, period. But no, I didn't go around and brag about well. I'm a big time hundred anything like that. Now is whoever brought up hunting in a conversation openly talked about it. That was just like I say, that's my escape. That's one of my escapes from my professional life. Has taken on more relevancy now, though, later in life with your kids or no? My oldest son. He likes pheasant hunt Whitman he's a horrible shot, but he goes out with me. And, and my other two don't have interest in it. My youngest son and my daughter, my oldest he goes sometimes with me, we did you try to get them into it, and they didn't want to get into it. No one thing that I one thing that I've never done. I've never pushed my kids at anything but, but education, if you wanna do it, you can do it if you wanna pursue something, you aren't going to pursue it for a week, and then, give it up because it's too hard, you will stick with it. So both of my son, they played junior high football and everybody expected them them to be Bo Jackson. Bo Jackson type quits. They weren't and I never pushed him at it, and I just despise parents, that sit up in pushed their kids and push their kids and push their kids. Because in the end when they get to be teenagers, they are going to hate that sport. And they are going to despise your parents for pushing up. In that sport. You gotta let a kit, make up, his his or her mind if they want to pursue that sport or not. Because that's kind of a funny thing about the way you were describing your upbringing is your, you have some, you know, you're someone who many people site, as the greatest athlete of all time, and your mom was holding you back from playing sports rather than putting you in all the traveling camps and didn't have the mies didn't have the money to we had a little league baseball team, which was free.

"But you know, he's playing against the the the talent level was, you know, inferior. Bo Jackson could have been the greatest running back of all time. I still love that Dion Sanders story t on dealing goes. Now, I could fly now I can run, you know, he he's like talking about that. And when Bo puts his hand out as if to just sort of, you know, I'm going to in the church where you put they hands on you and your kind of fold fall down and something there. He's touching you on the forehead. And when he said that Bo did that to him. I think it's such a great story because you know, Dion didn't get punked to too many times. But that time with Bo he did. Yeah. Mclovin. How about Charlie ward? Did you think he made the right call? I feel like today's game. Charlie ward would have maybe been a better NFL player than NBA. He was a great college quarterback. Florida state. In this era. Yeah. Yeah. I believe so mobility. Yeah. He said he really moved the needle in the NBA. How good no. But he, but he played on some good good teams with an x. I don't I don't know. How accurate he was at Florida state? You know, he was he just struck. You is he was a great athlete who made plays. But I don't know. I every one of these guys now, you're completing at least sixty five percent of your passes. I've waiting to give you this staffer years. Charlie ward senior year stats at Florida state. He was a seventy percent passer at three thousand yards twenty seven touchdowns four picks. Yeah. The day of the day stat of the day. Comes that. What stat of the day? But does it feel like we have ten of those quarterbacks? Now who put up those numbers? You know, you're you're it's sixty five to seventy two percent, right. Yes. He yeah. You feel like he wouldn't even sniffing Heisman with those numbers. A lot of NFL talent around him to he work done. Yeah. I think at Peter work at one point lot of guys. Well, what was chew of this year? Oh, man. He's got some studs around now to it was. But to you know, what was this completion percentage? Baker Mayfield junior the third completed about seventy percent of his passes. It just feels like you it used to be if you were like fifty to fifty four fifty six percent. You're like, okay, you're not a bad quarterback. Now. I mean, that's you're not even get on the field. Anything like that? You got to be sixty five percent completion to a stat sophomore year seventy percent passer thousand yards forty three touchdowns and six picks. His quarterback rating is one ninety nine. I felt like one fifty eight was the man I thought that was the perfect score like eight. Plus, I think college is different because I've always wanted that too. They all have like Kyla Mary's by two hundred. I don't know if you guys realize this. I didn't know you could get a higher grade point average than a four point.

"Taylor or Bo Jackson, who your take. They're healthy. Thank you. Jeff, that's not a hammer of a question that's obvious. Okay. What's so obvious if I, if I have Bo Jackson only playing football in his prime, Lawrence Taylor one like to Shubra single handedly changed the game forever. Bo Jackson was just the best running back in the game. I don't. Actually. I don't even remember how good we don't know how good Bo Jackson could have been because he didn't. We saw how great he was in college. But he didn't. He was splitting back and forth between baseball and football. I would take Lawrence Taylor, but I don't think it says cut and dried as you make it out to be mclovin because I don't know if we really saw the greatness of Bo Jackson, like the complete greatness of great running backs, storm really win titles. You know, Barry Sanders. That's true. I mean, water paid one one, but yeah, fridge ran the ball. Yeah. Yep. Oh, Bo Jackson, though. When he was in his prime and what's healthy, average five and a half yards a carry. There's hall of fame running backs who average four and a half yards to carry are less. Yeah. He was nuts when he was healthy, but we didn't see him just be a football player. So in fairness to Bo Jackson, we saw what Lawrence Taylor could be, and that's is dominating is I'm not going to say it's the most dominating defensive player ever seen because I, I look at what means you'll green meant to the Steelers when the Steelers weren't a great defense means show Greene was the centerpiece for that and then they build around him the purple people eater. There's so many great defensive player. Deacon Jones, but Lawrence Taylor to me, change football. So I would say Lawrence Taylor would I'd put him above Bo, Jackson more phone calls coming up. I mentioned this a couple of days ago and I had a friend, a Hollywood friend. I love CENA. I only have one Hollywood friend, so he says, hey, you know who taught Brad Pitt, how to fly fish and that movie river runs through it. He was listening on the show and I said, who, and he goes, Melissa Ethridge did at our swimming pool, and I went what so I mentioned it on the air. And then all of a sudden I start to see tweets where people reaching out to Melissa Ethridge to see if she'll come on the program. And I'm thinking, Melissa Ethridge has got better things to do to come on this program. And lo and behold, fritzy reaches out and Melissa Ethridge the singer songwriter guitarist, joining us on the program. Good morning, Melissa, thanks for joining us good morning and first time, longtime. Okay. When did you start to hear about this? That we were talking about this and how did it get to you? I just heard it a couple of days ago just it was a. Tweet from guy was really, hey, I heard you talk, Brad, Pitt. How to fly fish? Is this true? Go chiefs, you know. Okay. Explain that to me because Brad Pitt. Is he had to audition for river runs through it, correct? Yeah, this was back. This is this is one of his first movies after Thelma and Louise. Okay. And he, there was a bunch of us sort of mid western Hollywood wannabes trying to make it and he, he has k- knew the I, I love to fish. I was born and raised in Kansas. My father was a sporting guy. He was a basketball coach, high school basketball coach, and just a real sporting guide. He taught me how to fish very young, and it's just been a big part of my life, and he knew that I knew how to fish and fly fishing. So he said, look, I, I have to audition for this movie river runs through it and civil come over, and I'll show you just I just showed him how to cast just to where he could look like he knew how to fly fish..
