"Good to be riding along with you is a 39. I love these little tidbits of Chicago history, especially when they're intertwined with 16 of softball. You know about the history of the game. Back in 18 87 on the 24th of November. Which was Thanksgiving Day That year. History was made at the Farragut Boat Club, which is now part of landfill south of McCormick Place. Yale and Harvard students and alumni assembled there that day. To follow the ticker tape. Results of the annual football game between both schools eventually won by Yale, and while they were waiting Wrapped up a boxing glove. So they had like a big, soft ball that they could hit inside the gym. With a broomstick. And the game caught on. Route. Rules were eventually formalized. And lo and behold, a new indoor sport was mourn at the time using Ah ball that was 17 inches in circumference. By the late 18 nineties. The game moved outdoors and became formerly known as softball, which is perfect for the small parks and school yards of Chicago and eventually They had a 16 inch softball. As opposed to the 12 inch ball that was used in other parts of the country. That's why it's still the best gift to give somebody Out of town, a 16 in Chicago softball, especially if they're transplanted Chicagoan because it's unique. You can't get it anywhere else but in our city And by the way, I know not a lot of people are having big Thanksgivings this year. But if you are looking for a centerpiece for your table if you are having some sort of gathering the perfect centerpiece Is 16 inch clincher. And then it's a conversation starter because people say, Well, why do you have a 60 soft on the table? Then you tell him the story about Thanksgiving and the history of Chicago softball. Put that on my table That would be a conversation stopper right away. Let's see, Um, the size of the ball changed often until the 20th century, much of the world adopted the 12 inch game. Requiring gloves, of course. And Chicago loved the 16 inch game so you could play without gloves and smaller fields or actually inside during bad weather, although I don't think to make people play this game inside. And By the way, I mentioned this earlier, I'll mention it again because people are struggling with how to be healthy and still have a Thanksgiving dinner. And maybe even if it's a small one. Ah, what to do, because you're inside and you got to take your mask off while you're eating. So I'm telling you the forecast for Thursday for Thanksgiving Day. It's gonna be chilly in the early morning and late at night, But the high is supposed to be around 52 53, So just move the Thanksgiving dinner up to like, you know, one o'clock two o'clock in the afternoon. A lot of people would do that, anyway. And then have it outside. You have a garage. Get the car out. Have it in your garage with the garage door open or if you've got a backyard or front deck or even the front lawn, just have it outside. Allison 50 something you wear coat, you'll be fine. And as somebody said, who just texted us about this and parts of Europe. They do outdoor dining year round, even in The coldest weather. It's part of their culture. Yeah, right. Don't be a girlie man. You know 50 degrees be fine up there. And if you've ever gone Skiing anywhere. You know, you sit outside and in cold weather sometimes and eat. You got your ski jacket on. Just do that. You know what I suggested to my wife? We consider doing this. We're not going to do it. We're gonna just be by ourselves, but We talked about doing over the kids, and I said, Let's treat it like a tailgate party. Yeah, you're in a football game here. The Bears game. Whatever Northwestern game, you just You just bundle up your outside. Maybe get a fire pit or something. And and But keep your distance. Of course you could do it. You're not gonna do that, though. We're not going nowhere. Chicken down, not chicken. Now we're out of a button. Abundance of caution. We'll see. I'm chickening out of this. Small dinner. We were supposed to go to just like four people, but still I was freaking out about being inside this person's house and I'm thinking, wait it Well, let's just go outside and do it and move it up. Like one or two o'clock in the afternoon. Although I guess if you really want to be safe, have what I now call and this is my new name for the holiday. Assume giving happy Zoom giving. It's a 44 and the weather. Well, let's see before we get to Thanksgiving. I could tell you that this time tomorrow morning. It's going to be quite a mess, isn't it?.

I think they're called skulls to tell us more about this is my old, buddy. Mike Scully genteel. They really call him Scully, just like moulder. But no, I just made that part up Mike save me from myself here. That's how's it going? Now, it was going through that Scully thing in it. And I think it just just torpedoed my own boat now. That's all right. Maybe it'll stick. I I can go by Scully, whatever it takes men. Yeah. So tell me a little bit about what's going on the last time, we talked you. There were the the boat club was open for certain things, there's some some work being done. But you guys are out there all the time. I mean, this is a living breathing, and I hate to say because we always say too much in Detroit. But it's one of our gems, but is a cool place. Yeah. Yeah. It really is. You know, there's been rallying at the Detroit. So cob or some version of the ball club in eighteen thirty nine and we've got some really great programs going there. Now that we're trying to grow got junior rowing. We've got adult rowing and we're starting a new club at Wayne State as well for ROY. So that that won't be a varsity sport, but that'll be something affiliated with Wayne State where students who want to participate in extra curricular and extra rigorous curricular activity can come down to the ball club in and jump in a boat with you. Oh, yeah. Yeah. And so people will get the chance to learn to row and also compete against other colleges. So yeah. Monte Carlo night is is March ninth. And it's a great opportunity for people to come into the Volkhov. And really check out the building. I'll we've done a lot of work over the past couple of years, and we're having a lot of great events that a lot of weddings, a lot of. But Monte Carlo night is is a great time. It's it's your chance to check out the club. And really see what we've done in there. So I went there boy back in like nineteen eighty four and was just just struck by what a magnificent place it was closed down for a number of years. And as we know any building that's closed for any amount of time in this climate suffers significantly, but there's been a steady effort to restore the grandeur in what what's the latest. What's the latest milestone? You guys have reached and what will people who haven't been there since it close? Be surprised to see I think people would be very surprised at how how well the interior has held up the exterior those stucco walls have really suffered. But the inside really looks great. And it's getting better. Our our big initiative right now as we're we're starting to outgrow the space believe it or not where we're we're actually doing the rowing programs because we've got so much else going on in the building now. So we're working on a master plan with the DNR in the Belle isle. Conservancy to assess the space and see how we can best utilize it and attract additional programs and other people as well. For example. In addition, a rowing, there's there's a group called challenge the wind, which is a sailing class for disadvantaged kids in the city that that works out there all summer long. I was a member of break the wind. I understand. We're not welcome back. Well, it's still under review. Okay. Well, I appreciate that. Let me know when the hearing date is because. Somehow, I keep getting left off of those announcements. I don't know can't for the life of me imagine why. So so tell me what goes on at Monte Carlo night, the name seems sort of intuitive. But but you're not just off the coast of France. So maybe maybe there's more to it than I'm thinking. Right. Well, you know, it's it's charity gaming, so we've got lots of of a table setup for with all kinds of casino games. And it's it's a direct fundraiser for the club for the building in for our programs. They are to help us grow rowing in the city of Detroit and in in the region. It's such a great opportunity for young people. You know? About fourteen percent of boys in twenty five percent of girls in in high school. Go earn to compete at rolling in at the college level. So it really it's really, you know, it blows away other sports and other activities in terms of being able to turn that into something you can use later in life. One of the things I really like about events like the Monte Carlo night is that it's a fun time that I would do if it wasn't for a good cause. But it is for a really good cause. And it's in a really cool place. You can have besides the casino games. You'll have some food. There'll be some raffles I understand you'll have some adult beverages and and culinary stations. Which guy like me from the east side. I think translates as good eats. Yeah. We we hope everybody east side and west side translated to get eats. But yeah, there is definitely a lot going on. There is there is a lot to do with the event, and there's a lot of checkout, and we just hope people come in extremes. The whole building NC fee everything that's happened over the past few years. So how do people find out more about this? You guys have a phone number or website that people can Mark down to do a little noodling around on the internet after we're off the air. Yeah. Just have them go to Detroit boat club, Crewe dot com. You'll see right there. I click on the banner to find out more about Monte Carlo night more about or other programs and other events. We got coming up. Okay. Now. I'm sure there are people saying March ninth man, we haven't even why are we talked. We haven't got a Valentine's Day where are we talking about March? It's because if you wanna get involved, you can get a discount on tickets before the fifth, so we're trying to let you know about this before the prices, go up and for a hundred bucks. You get. Two hundred dollars where the gaming chips, you can you can have all the great food and orders. There's beer wine cocktails include they'll be entertainment dancing raffle prizes. Valet parking. That sounds like a pretty good deal. Yeah. It's it's it's a pretty good deal. And it's in it's a lot of fun. And like I said this this is directly supporting our programs in in the people that are on there every day. In fact, we've got we're doing a big push to try to recruit new people. We're holding an open house at the boat club January twenty first through January twenty six so those are Monday through Friday, and then that next Saturday morning, if you just wanna come check it out, see what it's like see the people that are working out there and learn more about rolling before the Monte Carlo night. That's that's the time to do it. And that's January twenty first through January twenty second. So sick on their this is this is a very vibrant dynamic place. And. And we were talking about mayor Kilpatrick little earlier in the show. I seem to remember sometime in the early two thousand see said he was going to transform that into a maritime academy that didn't happen. Go figure. Kilpatrick lied or to be kind was wrong, but somebody else's stepping in to fix it. And again, it's my favorite story in Detroit people from Detroit people in the city in the area coming together to make this place better. So Mike, thank you for everything that you guys are doing a throw that website to us. One more time before we let you go yet. That's Detroit bulkhead Crewe dot com, Detroit boat club crew dot com.

WJR traffic and weather is always first on the fives..
"boat club" Discussed on Finding Mastery: Conversations with Michael Gervais
"So how did being on the other side of the tracks help you get good quickly because we weren't gonna lose? You know, we want to lose you had that, you know. No one was going to be beat us. We had some fire. And we we said we gotta we gotta get. We gotta go for what you get fat from where did that come from? I think it was just the environment. I grew up in you know, I mean, it was it wasn't killer be killed. But it was like tries. Did you can because you're going to otherwise you're going to work in the steel mill? Okay. You know? And that's because that was when the mills were burning, you know, I mean, really really fly did you have family? My dad was blue collar worker, and my mother was white, but also had jobs and stuff. And so yeah, it was it was like. We were the poor kids who played with rich kids. In our little town wasn't so much that when we played we're thirty miles from Pittsburgh. And we went up to pitch through to play. Oh, the kids for Lebanon, and really she. She places, you know, and they had the great strokes. But we weren't gonna lose. And we had we got ranked number one in the two when we were sixteen in doubles. And I was number six in singles, my Joe was number one in singles, and we shouldn't have been. I mean, we never had a lesson by that time, you know, and everybody else knew how to serve and. Yeah. In a pros and all that. And so so that really propelled me into then into athletics and into sort of traveling around the country went to the national's, and we got to the we got through around in the nationals and then met to top seeds from California, Bobby. Let's his brother Donnie lutts and Burto Carreira were the the top seed, and we got on the court with them and didn't get a point, you know, practicing their serve. Limited the California's by the way at that time to sixteen people sixteen California's in any of the big tournaments because they'd win a hotbed. Okay. So bring us back to a point in time that you remember feeling that fire even though across the net where people that had better strokes that were more skilled than you. Is there a particular game or match or? Oh, yeah. Event in the Louisville boat club. Can you believe that? The forget Louis boat. Louis Bill, Louisville boat club invitational. Okay. Really is society. It's sixteen sixteen and I was playing Peyton watching from North Carolina. And he was ranked in he had the nicest strokes in the ease and overhead and everything. And I was just saying I'm not gonna I'm not gonna lose this. I ended up losing. But it was really close. And it it it it. It was something that he wasn't expecting a nor war, nor was I. Where do you feel that in your body? Like when you talk about that fire in that fight. You know, is there a particular? How do you capture that inside in? It's it's in my it's in my stomach and in my chest. That's that's really where it is in. And that is. You know, where where it starts? It's like the whole being is there list. Coalesce rounded is their shape is their size. Is there is there anything in particular about it that unique to you? Unique to me. I think you know, as I say the steel mills were on fire. So we would be driving along in there before flying out of the steel steel mills all the time. And that's what I felt inside. I felt that fire, you know. And then you know, I played football. And I was skinny little kid and slow of foot and held the dummies. You know, I was a scrub, you know, with these guys who were, but I was not going to be beaten. I mean, I was going to not be knocked over and we did. Some practice two days and running up the hill and side and trying to trying to make the team. So if we go from twelve to sixteen in now fast forward X X number of years, and you're no longer competing athletically, the way you once did. And now, you've understood deeply about focus and attention and the brain and behavior and psychology. What what looking back what could you tell somebody to help their child or to help a co worker or to help themselves had a tap into fire?.
