Accusations of Treason Swirl Around Gen. Mark Milley
"Sean hannity during his monologue last night talked about milly either being he should be absolutely fired and tried for treason. If of course the account of bob woodward and bob costas book is correct. Accusations of treason are now swirling around the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. That would be general mark milley. According to an explosive upcoming book from bob woodward millions accused of conspiring behind the scenes with communist chinese to undermine president trump in the fall of twenty twenty as the washington post details quote in the books account. Millie went so far as to pledge that he would alert his counterpart in the event of the us attack is counterpart being in china. The communist chinese. The book claims that millie had his chinese counterpart quote. Generally you and i have known each other for five years now. And if we're going to attack. I wanna call you ahead of time. It's not going to be a surprise. Okay so what they can attack us. I if this is true general milley would be traded to this country if true he should be fired and tried portrays an immediately given america's enemies heads up before an attack. Well that's the worst possible offense that are member of our military ever commit and there's more according to the same upcoming book and that is the general milley also conspired behind the scenes to neuter the commander in chiefs ability taken duct his constitutional role as commander in chief and conduct military operations. Now this this shouldn't be a right left talking point. I should be able to say to every democrat listening to the show every trumpeter if the chair of the joint chiefs was giving our enemies a heads up in the event of an attack. How is that not treason.

I don't want to have a show hanging over my head every week or every month and we're not looking to duplicate or do better by degree that which is already out there so it's not the same as real sports with bryant gumbel which is the sixty minutes sports and his great on its own terms.

"There's somebody on twitter and it could be bob at real underscore. Bob costas then. You read the twitter bio and you begin to think something could be up because it's his former nbc. Sports broadcaster twenty one time emmy award winner eleven time olympic host president and sole member of the bc fc. Bob costas fan club. Doesn't sound like bob so i wanted to make sure that we're all buttoned up and inviting here on the rich eisen show to discuss this. Very subject is none other than the real actual one hundred percent authentic. Bob costas. how are you bob. I'm goodrich late last night. And then again this morning. When i woke up dozens of texts some claiming it must be real some saying this can't be true and one said this is the best indication that helvin frozen over the oh four red stocks or the twenty sixteen cubs. But i'm here to assure you and everybody else that the fires of hell are still very much blazing. Because i am absolutely not on twitter. They've taken the boldest account down and i began thinking you know what. Actually what would i have to do more. I ever gained to be on twitter. What like binge watch the real housewives of orange county can return trip to so she just with a nostalgia of baseball or or just for you for you rich just about make a special trip to the nfl combo happen. Before i'm ever on twitter. Prequel of basketball would be pretty epic cool like you know what i have admit that so docker brothers asked me to do a sequel especially with al michaels at my side bastketball. It must it must be done our public. Okay so this is the real. Bob costas confirmed that now. Twitter needs that. Oh my gosh the things in the world so did you did. You did you Your son tweeted it out that this is not you. I saw the first green. Grab that that keeps sent to me. This one tip off should be look. I'm a reasonably humble self-effacing guy. But what i knowingly short-changed myself seven emmys gets a number on emi's right. I said that. I said a forty one seems a little light. The scam get your welcome back to the richeisenshow. Suzy shuster in for rich. Eisen and none other than bob costas on the phone with us right now. Twenty eight emmy seven. You would never shortchanged yourself. You wouldn't know sooner. Change yourself an emmy than al michaels would eat a green vegetable. Bob good point but susie you have just given me insight into what my approach should be going forward for the rest of my career. Just select my greatest hits and let them play an extended version of that rather than me having to come on and try and think of something new to say. Pick like ten best things we ever did. Our lifetime batting averages would be much higher. Here's my question. What haven't you said yet. let's think about that. I mean with the amount of olympics. You've done world series super bowls. What haven't talked about yet. You know. I have a few rants that my my friends like happy reprieve from now and then which i will not do now but one has to do with how much i loathe parades or the the day of the year where have any animus toward the group in question is when they parade down fifth avenue and make it impossible for me to cross the street and everybody else has to go around and around and traffic has to be rerouted and the police have to be have to be employed or sent to police this parade. Meanwhile meanwhile crime runs rampant in gotham city and commissioner gordon. Pick up the phone. you know. it's just all wrong in. You can't take your dog to the park to go to the bathroom.

"Et cetera. Bob costas here On the rich eisen show. So what are we gonna continue to see this. I mean what are you. are you hearing anything about. What's being discussed. Are i mean. What are you rich. I think this is the key difference. Guys have always cheated. Look for an edge. Some of it. We looked on almost benignly. Like it's interesting gamesmanship wide elston howard of the yankees back in the sixties. Used to say that he would nick a baseball on his shin. Guard before throwing it back to whitey ford and that one little nick aloud. Why did it make the baseball. Do some things that he otherwise couldn't make do gaylord. Perry we all know and gaylord went through an elaborate series of maneuvers touching. The bill of his cab touching his bell touching his jersey the back of his hair all those things. If only to put the fear of in the batter's mind and to Offer too many possibilities for the umpires to crack down on him or don sutton or others. Okay we knew it existed. But the general impression was that. It's a handful of guys who are doing this effectively now with the bio mechanics that have come into play With with the way pitchers are pitchers train with the emphasis on velocity and spin rate High tech coaching then Then supplemented by these various substances. It's across the board. Not everybody may be as effective but a huge percentage of the consensus is a huge percentage of pictures from middling guys all the way up to future hall of famers are using this to gain a further advantage. So you have instead of a few little wink wink. Outliers gaylord perry's of the world. You've got an epidemic throughout the sport and it's affecting the appeal of the sport as an entertainment product when you look back at the steroid era. It was wrong. It poisoned the record books but you could make a case. That actually made more entertaining for a period of time. People responded to it they may feel differently about it through the rear view mirror but in the here and now they responded more or less favorably to it. No fans respond to this form of baseball. Where action is suppressed. Where run-scoring is suppressed Where the strikeout rate in major league baseball rich. The overall strikeout rate is equal to nolan. Ryan's career strikeout rate nolan ryan struck out about twenty five percent of the batters. He faced over his quarter century career. That's the average strikeout rate and major league baseball now. All pitchers combined. This is not entertaining. I was in you you tacking onto the raise doing like what a lot of teams are doing as well which is start the opener. Not a starter. Start the opener Then get yourself to a fifth inning where you might have one lead and then bring in one one hundred mile an hour thrower after another out of the pen and get the right mix of Exit velocity spin raid and and shifting and get yourself To the world series. And i just i. I run that i i said the having the first ninety scripted in the nfl. It just it just comes across as is not enough heart and soul and feel and got the whole thing and and you know add on the the spider tack after the apple. Watch after thera gun after all of that and it's just what you know. What can be done bob. I guess that's why. I set the very beginning. I'm conflicted because i love this sport. You know so much. And i know that it's yours to love as well. So what do you think you know what you just mentioned. Prompts another point which is implied. It used to be that a fastball. Above ninety was no worthy now. Like ninety one. Ninety two is the average bigly fastball. And we know that a lot of guys some of them starters and certainly bullpen guys who come out and just let the throttle out for an inning or a few batters ninety five plus is commonplace. So if you combine that with additional spin rate on that pitch and then additional spin rate on a heartbreaking sweater big-league hitters overmatched. In many circumstances. The game has a certain balance. And when that balance has gotten out of whack in the past adjustments have been made. Baseball's very slow to make these adjustments. Sports tend to do it more quickly and baseball. You know because it has. Its history that you don't wanna mess with such etcetera. Maybe it's a good thing that they're generally slow to change things but we can see now that it is out of wack again it was out of whack in the late sixties. In favor of the pitchers it was way out of whack in the nineties in the early two thousands because of steroids and other factors in favor of the hitters. And now it's back out of whack in favor of the pictures again. And the they have. They have to recalibrate this most most urgently because it affects the business. It affects baseball's entertainment product but it also affects competitive balance and whatever is left of generational comparisons which are difficult to begin with but whatever's left of that part of the enjoyment of baseball if the conditions are so starkly different from one decade to the next then than some of that generational comparison goes away. Bob costas here on the rich eisen show in the few minutes. We have left them. Bob let's let's stroll down memory lane. Let's let's get. Let's get back to some other times here Thirty seven years ago today. Where were you bob costas. I was at wrigley field in chicago and it didn't even occur to me that this is yet another anniversary of the so-called sandberg game until i heard someone mentioned it on the air this morning And for those too young to remember it. The key thing here is that the saturday afternoon game the week in the seventies eighties. Really to the cusp of the nineties was a whole different thing than just a random baseball game. That happens to be on on saturday afternoons now. That was the only national telecast of the entire week in baseball in nineteen eighty-four the cable super stations that carry the braves and the cubs were in their infancy. So if you were in a non major league city that was your one chance to see fernando valenzuela face johnny bench or whatever it may have been And even if you did in a major league city most of those cities only televised. Maybe twenty five or thirty road games for an entire year. It was an entirely different landscape. The saturday afternoon game of the week sometimes got ratings of nine and ten ratings equal to prime time hit television shows so tony koubek and i find ourselves at wrigley field in chicago. It's the cardinals against the cubs. So it's classic. You always see some red shirts in the stands at wrigley in some blue cub shirts and hats at busch stadium. It's a beautiful saturday afternoon. The cardinals jumping front nine to three the cubs. Come battling back. It's nine to eight when ryan sambergen cubs up in the bottom of the ninth to face bruce suitor and to show you how different the game was soon has been in the game for two innings already trying to close it out. Sandberg into the left centerfield bleachers. To tie the game at nine nine they go to the tenth. Willie mcgee doubles home. Run at that point willie. Mcgee is hit for the cycle. he later scores. What appears to be an insurance run. The scores eleven to nine two outs. Nobody on bob dernier. The leadoff man walks on a three two pitch a disputed. Three to pitch up comes sandberg again. Suitor still on the mound. Sandberg hits the ball to almost exactly the same place. Look like the same fan. Could've caught them both now. The game was tied. Eleven eleven places going berserk at eventually. The cubs win the game in eleven innings. Twelve to eleven. The game to this day is still as the sandberg game..
How Rod Thorn's Career Started

He's done just about everything basketball including playing college years in the pros the second pick in the nineteen sixty three draft in the nba through seventy one coach of the sonics. But then in nineteen seventy-three rod your aba career started. How did that start. What was that call like. Well i had been an assistant coach ryan with the new New york nets and we had weighed The saint louis spirits and the first first round of the playoffs The previous year and we beat them during the regular season ten consecutive times. We beat them the first game of the playoffs and then they proceeded to win the next four So they had eliminated us and their coach Resigned and i was offered the job and and ended up taking it Harry wealth man who was at that time the gm of the spirits We've had several conversations and So i ended up taking the job so you had had initially been an assistant though. Correct when when you were with the nets right. That is correct. The kevin lottery was terrific. Coach was our ed oates and we had won one championship and lost in spirits. The next year so. I had been an assistant coach for two

"But you know. I had actually watched david through the years when he was a young standup on carson had a morning show which was so irreverent and probably ill-suited the ten o'clock in the morning Prior to getting the late night slot. So i i knew what he wanted and my heart was pounding. I was just hoping that. I could deliver it. Luckily i did and people will say. Letterman is a great interviewer. But if you watch him. It's not david frost. It's not the mike wallace interrogation. I guess the skills that there is that he gets people comfortable you know. And howard stern conduct some really compelling interviews. Despite some of his reputation in a lot of it is people allow him to kind of go there and then they'll say something like yeah it has to be there very different the two of them but it is comfort level may be as high on the list. Is the questions you ask the. I think the comfort level now with this version power stern is probably greater because people just settle into the couch in it. Seems open ended I was not a big fan of what howard stern did when he was first making his name. But i give him tremendous propped as an interviewer. Now he gets great stuff He's well prepared. He s smart questions. And as you said. He's got the format that allows it to play out well with letterman. You're really kind of on your toes. Because it's live to tape in front of a studio audience. At what davis masterful ad is conducting when the situation calls for and incisive interview but also punctuating it with laugh lives. I've always felt the days. In addition to remaking late night television. Everybody in some sense owes him a debt. Jimmy kimmel conan o'brien on my all time favorites and has a distinctive style of his own. All david a debt of some kind Justice johnny carson owed steve allen A debt for much of what he did. But think letterman was is a great broadcaster but people. Just don't think of it that way when you think of some of what david did behind that desk you know monologue. The monologue was only a way to get him from point. A. to point day half dozen jokes and then he went behind the desk with leno. he knew the that and stuff like headlines jaywalking..

"While a producer does pre interview with you and you line up a few areas where you might have a funny story or might be an interesting place to go of all. The talk show hosts that i was on with letterman. Was the one least likely to stick to that script. It bored him and he thought it was authentic and not challenging enough. So you had to be on your toes. Yeah he might set up a few things but it's something else occurred to him. He could come from around the corner with something. So you really had to be on your game to beyond with david and as you said i was on you know sitting down next to him as the guest. I dunno eight nine times but more than that as a contributor in these sketches that he came up with elevator races and One of the anniversary shows he's staked me out at one new york hospital and of all people. Vince mcmahon at another and if a baby was born we were in the maternity wards. If a baby was born during the show that baby would be anointed the late night baby with lifelong benefits that would accrue to someone Who had achieved such an honor and so they kept checking in with us back and forth to see if anything was happening. And that was totally unscripted and i remember at one point. I concluded the report. And you always did it because you knew this was david wanted in mock serious fashion because his whole show or at least a good portion of it was a send up of the conventions of television. So i'm doing it like a serious report. And dave we'll be back with all the pre and post natal action and he liked that very much and when it was over mcmahon actually it was a baby born at mcmahon's hospital but no baby born during that hour or ninety minutes In the hospital lives at they come back to me for a report. And there's like a party scene in in the ward so there's balloons there's cake all the nurses and orderlies. Some of the doctors are there. And i've got a cigar in my hand because they're ready to hand out the cigars the baby had been born and i said well dave no baby yet. But as you see. The party continues apace. Meanwhile just down this fall. The desperate cries of the plaintive cries of desperately ill men and women go unheeded and they went back to dave and he's throwing his head back in laughter and i think it was actually those contributor things kind of cemented by relationship with today's Who was very kind to me through the years. I remember like yesterday the hallway. And there i think did they have to. They have dog races and dog sled yet. Dog sled races elevator races The elevator races were very popular and that was early. On in his tenure. I think he came on the february lady to following johnny carson and the dog sled racers were in march or april of eighty two. And at that point he had no idea who i was in fact he introduced me as bob. Kosta they were looking for marv albert or somebody that he thought was more recognizable so the audience to play the sports caster part. And they were all out of town on the sinement. And he called the nbc's or somebody from letterman staff. Did and the woman said you know marvin here. Don isn't here. Dick enberg california. But we got a kid here. Bob costantini said. Send them up. I showed up. He called me. Bob kosta but i did okay. And after that. Bob costas head you edgy. Tanked or not been funnier interesting or clever that night. Maybe that was it right like could have been a one and done yeah. I don't know if it would have ended my career but it might have ended my relationship with let him than before i even began..

"I think i'd better change the channel. I have no interest in seeing and it goes on like this for twenty two torturous minutes. There's a little digital clock behind the right shoulder of the guest. I can see it. The guests can normally those twenty two minutes when flying by here. it was like sand through the hourglass. It just felt like every second less than an hour. I remember one way next questions while you played mountain rivera in requiem for a heavyweight. A role previously played by anthony. Quinn did you ever compare notes with the great quinn. Not at all. I didn't see his performance. I did not see mine. So now i say at some point you know. I'm beginning to feel like billy crystal's character in city slickers and you may recall martin scene. Where billy and the other tender foots sitting around the campfire and Jack pounces character is kind of the trail boss and they're talking about him disparaging fashion and billy doesn't realize it's a giant. Shadows cast over that collins is coming up behind him and pounds as line is he. Looks down terrified billy. Is i crap bigger than you kid. So i say. I'm beginning to feel like billy in that scene jack and his actual answer was oh crap on you ob maybe on some of your questions but not on you so final. Twenty two minutes. Go by. it's just the worst. And we walk off the set necess- kind of was an elevated little cho's in the corner of the studio where they do. Saturday night live a giant studio. But we're just on a little cubbyhole. So we step off that platform and into the relative darkness of the rest of the studio. At which point he clashed an arm around my shoulder pulls me into his chest. And says bob i gotta tell you a great story about marilyn monroe now now. Now jack wouldn't have been a good idea to tell it when we were back there. All bob was incredible now. The show did not air that night. We take them and they would air the next week and as it happens and you know. This is true of all players. Entertainers they keep on hours. The cardinals are in cincinnati. And joe torre goes back to his hotel room after the game and he's watching later the next morning i get a call from joe torry. He says that was one of the funniest things. I've ever seen in my life to watch you. Squirm like that and try and navigate that half hour with jack balance. That was the most entertaining thing. I've seen in a very long time. Joe entertaining to you may not to me. Would you always wanted to do the host of a car wreck. Everybody stopped to see. That's about the up on the flip side for you as a guest with carson letter on carson wants one time and then hominem letterman tons of times guest and or contributor i guess how scripted are those segments.

"And welcome into the kilcoyne conversation. This particular visit is with bob costas. We always joke somebody who needs no introduction and then we read their whole resume and where they've worked and what awards they've won i think with bob. We just leave it at that. He needs no introduction but the focus here and this is not to get bob on his take on the blues. Power play or the cardinals cleanup hitter. It's real specific in something that you sort of been on my brain about good interviews. You see people walking around with their headphones in their listening to podcasts or downloading long-form interviews and even though the world's changing and media's changing it's still about conversation and it's still about great interviews great subjects and i thought bob was the perfect person to talk about that. His friendship with larry king used to challenge each other in terms of their interview skills. even david letterman a non traditional interviewer but his particular style. Getting bob's take on that. And some fun anecdotes. About how he. I on the late show with letterman trying to get jack. Nicholson to do a halftime interview on the nba during the nba finals and all of us in tv or radio. You feel like you've been asked to do a tough assignment like oh i don't really wanna do it but the bosses are big on this. How about bob's nbc. Bosses saying go. Ask jack nicolson sitting courtside. There had to be a bulls blazers. Nba finals in chicago. How about being asked to go as jack nicholson to come on the set at halftime to yuck it up. Jack nicholson doesn't do tv interviews. Think about that. Never and bob was set. It's a very funny story He was sent on that assignment also his worst interview that he can recall from his time at later. How it was tremendously painful yet. Joe torry called him from the road hotel room with the cardinals to say he thought it was hilarious. So some great anecdotes with bob and the whole story backdrop to this interview is about people conducting great interviews in fact after it was over. Probably my fault for not drawing this out but after we were done recording the interview bob shared a story about david letterman. Being a fan of bob's radio show kost coast to coast which for decades was on sunday nights. You'd hear it on cam. Lex in saint louis but long form the mickey mantles of the world. And you'd spend an hour with these guests. But apparently letterman had been a fan of that listening to it and mentioned his nbc bosses. Hey you know kostas. Does these long-form interviews a sports guy. But i bet he can interview anybody. And bob thinks and believes that that was the genesis of him getting asked to do the tv show later. Which has he points out still lives on youtube. You can find some great interviews. I need to in fact. I didn't do this yet. Bob said there's a youtube video. When letterman was the guest on later but nonetheless it's all about interview style whether you're mike. Wallace larry. king or oprah winfrey. It's very different but the conversation today as it as it turns out is about conversation as strange as.
Washington NFL team says it will retire Redskins name, logo
"90 years. Washington D. C is pro football team is retiring the controversial Redskins mascot comas, Bill Swartz remind us of several schools in our state that changed racially offensive sports nicknames. Fight song and logo filled with stereotypes and insensitive words. Washington football team owner Dan Snyder announced the Redskins mascot is being dropped. He and coach Ron Rivera will find an appropriate nickname and logo going forward. Seattle's Nate Burlison played for the Seahawks and is a host on the NFL network. Just about time about time. There's been a lot of pressure on this organization, not just from the players, the fans but also now we know the sponsors, so This is a sport situation. It's a business situation, but more importantly, it's a humanity situation. So I'm glad that they decided to make the change Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Costas, not a fan of name changes, just a suit political correctness, But the Redskins had to go get yourself a dictionary.

Still unsigned baseball without any Chato. Bryce Harper just isn't gonna look right. What you see change your perception of any sporting events. Yet this. Welcomed outside the lines. I'm Ryan Smith the pitchers and catches reporting this week. Why is an all-star roster full of players still unsigned question servicing about what's happening behind the scenes with MLB teams. That's coming up. But first our big story broadcasting legend, Bob Costas on football, you know, in many ways, especially in the ratings department. The NFL had a banner year and fell season ratings were up five percent fan interests in the game continues to grow even now with the alliance of American football with ties to the league. The games will be broadcast on NFL network, by the way, opening week af games average, two point nine million viewers. That's higher than the NBA's. Okay. See Houston matchup on Saturday night, even the Super Bowl numbers, which were initially thought to be down had a strong showing viewed by over one hundred and twelve million people in the US the pinnacle of the NFL season used to be hosted by Bob Costas who for decades was the face of NBC sports a year ago. Was planning to host the Super Bowl yet? Again, when surprising to many it didn't happen now in this exclusive outside the lines report Costa's tells Mark Famer WADA about his removal from the biggest event on American television. In multiple interviews conducted over the last year us maintains it was all about challenging the most powerful entity in American sports. Counts back at Madison Square Garden. Resuming our coverage over a career that has spent five decades Sixty-six-year-old Bob Costas has worked just about every major sporting event. Eleven Olympic gains ten NBA finals seven Super Bowls. I Tommy seven World Series on the infield. Derek Churchill Downs, the Kentucky Derby, you name it. He's covered it. But no sport has proven more complicated for Costas than football. For more than a decade. He was the face of America's most popular sport on the most watched program in all of television NBC's Sunday night football, even as he grew increasingly tormented by the games violence. The game is unacceptably brutal. This game destroys people's brains now for the first time cost us reveals how and why is tortured relationship with football lead to his removal from the Super Bowl one year ago, and ultimately to an abrupt and unexpected end to his forty year run at NBC. What exactly do you remember being told? I'm being told that now I can no longer host the Super Bowl. I think the words were you've crossed the line. And my thought was what line have I crossed. Sports. Kostas is America's most versatile and decorated sports broadcaster had perhaps what is distinguished him as much as anything? I think he deserves to be bad. Baseball has been willingness to offer his opinions on controversial issues instinct, the owners collectively of told Colin Kaepernick to get the hell off the field. But no issue has proven more difficult for cost us to navigate then football's concussion crisis in one thousand nine hundred four at just thirty two. He was named the host of NBC's prestigious NFL pre-game show. But the Maury was around the sport. The more uncomfortable cost says he grew with its destructiveness in the early nineties when I would be at practices was standing on the sideline at games the sheer violence of the game. And then the some abrasion of that violence, even before CT became a specific issue. I just didn't feel comfortable with that. So in nineteen Ninety-three Kosta says he asked NBC to let him

"And then a couple of days later, he went and he received an award from a concussion study group how much of it do you think is that he was doing all this stuff outside of broadcasts after they said, hey, maybe tone it down a little bit. I don't think we're going to get honest answers to that ever. Like why I don't know what football is set about this. I don't know football would feel inclined to say anything about. There are a lot of cynics. A lot of people that would say, hey, Bob, you made a lot of money by broadcasting NFL games. You made a lot of money by broadcasting. This thing you are now telling us is evil and what I have people. Just going to say that like, hey, how come he didn't say any of this sooner? How come you didn't sit down wait a minute. Wait a minute Stu gods? What are you doing with his morals his money his career? Like, what are you doing? What never taken a stance? Like that. What did you want him to do? And then you hide behind people are going to say, well, that's what people would say he did address that in the piece they ask him about that. And he said that he was just trying to be a good soldier news doing out of loyalty to his bosses at NBC. And he felt like he was the voice of NBC. So he should be the guy doing this stuff. But it the whole piece makes it seem like he was conflicted going back and forth. Whether he should do it or he should be a good soldier NBC, which if you read this it seems like he has burned his bridges with NBC. No one wanted to comment at all on this even people. He thought were his close friends that could help out with the story. That's that's something that I'm finding fascinating here that Bob Costas can't endure the power of the NFL and ESPN has also been guilty of this in the past. When you, you know, not just that playmakers show. The NFL didn't want on the air. But you remember all that stuff that happened with NPR and concussions and then NPR pediatrics PBS excuse me. Yes, that that PBS was doing an exhaustive report with ESPN. And then all of a sudden it wasn't. I mean, I believe it was Alan Schwartz. Wasn't it? The formal baseball America writer who was doing the stuff for the New York Times writing about the informing everybody of football's concussion problem, a problem that since then we all the all the rules have been changed to God's in a way that has changed the sport appreciably and given birth to an entirely different league in February that can promise you violent hits Tom Brady will never endure again. Something that you said in in these first two segments..

"I want to get to this. Bob pasta story because I don't think that what just after the Bob Costas is allowed to happen Whiteley like this is the broadcaster VAR generation, and he's no longer around football in an appears to be because of things that he thought about concussions and ethical dilemmas the same way that Cosell left boxing once upon a time. This isn't allowed to happen quietly regrets talking outside the lines about any of this. He says, quote, the upside is not equal to the fear that I have so get to that masecond. But I wanted to ask you guys a couple of questions I because we got Michael Blanco today. And I don't know who he is. But I do know he sounds like a backup catcher. And so we were talking about what Michael Blanco sounds like we didn't know it was maybe the Spanish version of Reservoir Dogs or a backup catcher. But also debut in this weekend the alliance which. Sounds like something that you would find in John wick movie. Are people calling it the alliance the the new the new football league? No. It's af the alliance of American football. So no one's calling it the alliance yet. Nope. Not yet. I mean, you could be the first go ahead and just think it it feels like a movie involving Mel Gibson called payback. What was that movie it field? The syndicate something payback pay Bank. So Michael Blanco his mother his mother is a famous godmother of the of the cartel drug running days. Oh, yeah. Essentially, the the woman version of Pablo Escobar. Yes. Okay. The one the one who was featured in cocaine Cowboys. And now her spawn have a reality television show that looks wonderful an awful and wonder awful, it looks it. Yeah. It looks like, you know, how are you talking about cartel crew on VH one that's coming at twelve thirty eastern. We will talk to what was her name Gisela, just Blanco. Result. Gra zelda? Thank you reut receive every prepare for his interview. I mean both of us. But I know I know I remember approving of the interview when they told me do you want one of these people one of these siblings one of these spawns of the cocaine godmother, and I'm like, yeah. Okay. We will do we'll do that. Because I saw some of the I saw some of the commercials, and they were funny. His name is actually Michael Corleones Bongo. It's pretty cool. Has it though? I mean, I mean this. This woman was pretty awful. His mother was pretty off. She was assassinated in two thousand twelve. Big. If I ever have a boy, Michael Corleones, Blanco Weiner. You would be calling him Michael Corleones white Weiner fan. That's what you would be calling him. So I did like one thing about the alliance, and I know Florio and some other people were out there trotting out the ratings. They were better than ABC's regular season basketball game. They got about three million viewers the XFL debuted at almost ten million ten to twelve million. And I'm sure wrestling help them get a first time crowd. Now, we'll see if they can sustain it. I wouldn't get too carried away because the XFL got too bad ratings really fast. And this league doesn't have anyone, you know. But one of the things they do have. And I bet you the NFL will steal from them on this. You can hear the referees talking about instant replay. They just talk you through it. You're listening in on them. All there are a lot of contrivances in sports. Right. It's pretty silly. That we pay these people billions of dollars for the rights to telecast their games..

Brewers, Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers discussed on Mark Levin
"From from ESPN they had the dodgers winning last night's game six two zero. And then even after you know, what we've been seeing from the brewers the had the dodgers winning tonight six to three. I mean, oh, you know, you're you're seeing you know, a lot of the the narrative that can the brewers have can they ride this hot street and beat you know, this huge Iran's run spurring dodgers team. Right. And and it's like, you know, we were very hot. I mean. Absolutely. But this is more than just a streak, and this is more than just, you know, October walks. Yeah. Let's look down the line lineup. Yeah. Let's look at this. Okay. The brewers play in a tougher division and the dodgers do up and down. They play baseball. You've got this unbalanced schedule. So the brewers they're playing the cardinals. And they're playing the pirates and they're playing the cubs all teams that are well over five hundred that's the toughest schedule in the National League. And the brewers won four more games than the Los Angeles Dodgers with their two hundred twenty million dollar payroll did. But of course, they're not on anybody's radar screens because well TV the TV people live in Los Angeles where they live in New York. So they're not paying attention to the brewers. And and it can it's just I guess, I am venting. I admit it. But and maybe I've got this chip on my shoulder. But this is a great story and people should be talking about how exciting this team is to come out of nowhere and be doing all this great stuff instead of well, they're lucky the riding the wave or whatever. Absolutely. And. I think what's interesting is. You know, you bring up a good point the Milwaukee Brewers don't give as many nationally televised games. So all writing a little bit under the radar. If you're not around the area. But I mean, you look at our partitioning staff, which has been given great, you know, actually been given the respect. But even even with our pitching staff, you had you had traditions that you know, the dodgers bats are just too high. It'd be starting to Iran's. But then you look at past two games. And it's just not. Exactly. I mean, look is it possible that LA's going gonna come back and win the series? Yes. I guess it's possible. I I respect them. They are a good team. What I am frustrated with is the lack of respect that our team is getting a team that had a better regular season record than the vaunted dodgers, and at least as of right now is leading in the series guaranteeing that you know, worst case scenario there's gonna be a game six in Milwaukee, and candidly, candidly were it not for you know, one bad pitch in one bad inning. Dodgers would be trying to win tonight to avert. A sweet this has been the dodgers have been at least in my opinion completely. And totally outplayed by the Milwaukee Brewers. But don't expect to hear that if you tune into the national coverage, here's a text. I'm sick of hearing the national media keep on insinuating that the brewers are over achieving lucky and that NFL likely. Manager of the year Craig counsel, supposedly doesn't know what he's doing. Absolutely, absolutely. And I mean, this I guess this is what you come to expect. When you have this great local team that's on the national stage. But I'm frustrated with four one four seven nine nine one six twenty. Let's talk to let's see let's talk to Dan in greenvale, Daniel WTMJ good afternoon. Hey, Jeff, I think it has a lot to do with the west coast by Fania. The market out there. You know, I don't think I don't necessarily think their their dog and the brewers just they're really hoping for the dodgers in their for their ratings are greater back on what Kansas City won the World Series. Great World Series of very low rated. Yes. Right, right. The the ideal dream of the networks is Los Angeles. And now that knew it would have been Los Angeles and New York, but now that Los Angeles, the Yankees are out of it, the dream is the dodgers and the Red Sox, you know, two of the larger media markets, Houston and Milwaukee. Oh my gosh. That's flyover country. How can you know? What's that gonna do? So I think you're you're probably onto the brewers were. Okay. Sunday night. Baseball is ESPN's featured thing it's it's sort of like Sunday night football. The brewers didn't play on Sunday night baseball. They weren't scheduled any time. This year mean seriously how many times can you watch the Yankees play? The Boston Red Sox four one four seven nine nine one six twenty Mike in Waterford micro WTMJ afternoon. I definitely agree with what you're saying. And I think part of the problem with the analyst, especially as of yet don't know how to analyze a team like the brewers. They're completely different. They do the analytics like who who announces the bullpen as the starting pitchers the brewers. And so these guys that have played traditional baseball traditional cities with traditional teams with the big starting pitching what to say about him in the first place. Right. And they still can't grasp the fact that they're winning that way. It's almost like when the west coast offense came into nobody believed that the San Francisco forty Niners. We're going to be that good. Because how can you do this with their stink and drive and no running game and stuff like that? I go way up playing baseball. And I agree with you, Mike, except I'm willing to make a prediction if the situation were reversed in the brewers were the more conventional team with the starters that went seven innings and the dodgers were the ones that were pushing the envelope and all this stuff. My guess is the spin would be how incredibly unconventional they're rewriting all the rules. This is the future of baseball look at where visionary Dave Roberts. That would be the big the big story. And and I I don't think they like the fact that this new way of playing baseball is coming from Milwaukee. Yes. Absolutely. I think you're exactly right. They resent it. They don't understand it. And they okay. This is not the way it's done. And here you have this little team out of Milwaukee to been able to do this. And I just look I understand inventing. But but somebody who's been a long suffering baseball fan for a long time and a huge brewers fan. I think this is a special season. I do and. And it is frustrated me all along that this team isn't getting the respect that. I think it deserves outside of Milwaukee. Now as long as they keep winning, it doesn't matter and see. That's that's I guess the bottom line keep winning. And you know, who cares? What anybody else thinks? But I think the coverage of the brewers and the national commentators, and then blessed the left the the left coast bias that you've seen towards the the dodgers has been just appalling, I understand that you can pick and choose and somebody that's a great game or or whatever. But just just watch the criticism of the council gets for the different decisions. He makes that did end up. They end up working did end up working because what the brewers are doing right now is something special looking I fully understand dodgers. Could maybe go ahead and win three in a row. And then they go on to the World Series. And Welby said even though it's been a great year. But I mean, this this is an incredibly good story. It's a wonderful story. And it is unfortunate that that story is not. Being told to the national the national audience on a better basis. So luckily, the answer to all this is of course, just to turn down the sound turn up WTMJ and listened to Bob and Jeff do the call. That's of course, the answer to it. But it doesn't change the frustration that I have listening to a lot of the commentators who don't know the brewers don't like the viewer. The brewers don't know anything about Milwaukee and desperately want to see the Los Angeles Dodgers win. Well, maybe they're going to get their wish. But I wouldn't be surprised if I don't know every once in a while the good guys win. And maybe some of the announcers the Joe bucks of the world the Bob Costas of the world. Maybe then they'll even have to figure out how to pronounce the names of some of the brewers players for forty-nine, Jeff Wagner WTMJ. Twelve

"Pleasure to be joined by the twenty eighteen Ford Frick award winner for excellence in broadcasting the one and only Bob Costas Bob, thank you for joining us, hey, Jeremy, how you doing? I'm great. And it's really to have you again on the show. It's thrilling to see you being honored in Cooperstown and you know you've covered everything. You've done all that. You can do really in this business, but this honor, what is this honor mean? This honor means more to me than all the other forms of recognition that I've been fortunate enough to receive, and that's not to downplay any of them. I know I'm associated with the Olympics. I loved my time with the NBA when I did the late night show on NBC that was not a sport show. It's gratifying that people are. Quarter century later still come up to me and remember specific episodes. The work that I did at HBO with Ross Greenburg and his team Ross needs to build an annex on his house to hold not just the Emmys, but the Peabody awards, the gold standard, the sixty minutes of sports type things that they did. All those things are important parts of my career, but I just loved baseball from the time that I can. I remember and I didn't just love the game. I loved the sounds of the game, the broadcasters and what I hoped from a very early age was that one day I could be one of them one day. I could make a living as a broadcaster specifically a baseball broadcaster and thus be close to and part of the game. I never dreamt that this kind of recognition that membership in the fraternity that includes the. Best and most venerable of baseball broadcasters that one day that would come my way. So when you connect it to my childhood, it means the most and it doesn't just connect you as meaningful as that is with the great broadcasters in baseball history. It connects you with the great players. Of course, in the great contributors in the great managers and general managers in many people when they think of your career, one of the things that stands out wasn't a professional responsibility, but a personal responsibility or personal.
