Or wherever you get your podcasts. Say though that even though the bradley beach facebook page has become private. And i can't go and look at that. Facebook page there our listeners. Out there that care about the program and our screenshot what al is posting on the bradley beach community facebook page and then tweeting it to us which breaks privacy. Say do you think that that is going above and beyond do that's really taking your private correct flights and putting them out there in the public domain. Somebody probably sue everybody who's involved. We've got a good lawyer here. That's probably representing a company. That sues people so you just call one of them will. Amy dash is always willing to fight for you know. She made that clear. She's gonna fight for us but she's not an ambulance chasing lawyer. She's good all right so tell us exactly what happened. I'm having some dog issues so whimsey is upset that i'm coming at her. Her life changed and she's not doing anything damaging at home or anything. She's very good at home but she has developed an anxiety now walking which used to love to go for walks all of a sudden she's developed a -iety of walking where she's carrying a teaser. Around a wait a minute. I don't know where she gets. It okay so what is she doing while you're taking it for walk. She as soon as she sees a human being and i live by the beach. She wants to go home and in the past she would tolerate people. She wouldn't she wouldn't. She's not interested in you coming up in padding her yeah she's not. She won't do anything if you do. But she's not interested. She'll turn her back like don't bother me. Yeah but now but now if she sees someone even in the distance she wants to go home. I mean this the only difference between you and her as a tail there really is it while she's a female so anyway i went on the bradley beach thing saying i had some people. Some people telling me that Maybe social if your dog walks with another dog maybe it builds confidence back up in the okay all right. She's lost some confidence. So i thought let me see if there are other greyhounds because they still lived their whole life with greyhounds. Gotcha being together with greyhounds. So i just put that out there. Because i know there are some greyhounds in town but maybe we wanna walk together so you basically went to facebook. Define a friend. I went to a private group to find whimsey a friend yes someone rudely screengrabbed to mock me whimsy. Swipe right well. It has to be another greyhound. I feel like this is Prejudice of you find another greyhound and that was the very first comment. I got seriously no facetious. I know you are. But we're the julia. Mealy was the first combat wise it to be a grand. Just that'd be cost they they. She spent a whole life around other greyhounds. That's all why don't you get another greyhound. No no not interested enough. Yeah i though this really cemented my you know people always say you didn't have children. You're going to look back someday. No way like. I cannot handle an eat pretty easy to deal with dog. Sure can't handle it. It's not for everybody. I can't blame you. Never be able to have our every home ashes question when you go home when you do do arrive. Are you happy to be home. 'cause she's there i am yes and you can't wait to see her right. So that's good. That's right feelings to do the best thing you can to the dog so right but she used to so enjoy walks and now she doesn't want to so she just lays around all day thinking about if you had a child would not leave the child at home by the cell right. You'd probably put the child in child care. You'd have the mother of the child. You know figuring out something while you're leaving at two o'clock in the morning go to work correct. So you've always been responsible. You wouldn't want to bring up a person into the world that you couldn't take care of a dog is a little bit there. You can the dog alone. But yeah i definitely see that. The dog now is having separation anxiety issues but it's weird in that it's only when she sees another person because when we go out at say three o'clock in the morning she's a good old time for we go everywhere that's our now. Our main walk is going on in the middle of the night because there's no people out. Wow yeah strange. You think this is directly correlated to you showing up work has to be. That's a shame yeah. What about does so. Does gina go and check on wednesday during the day. We'll gina walks her most days. And then i have a dog walker. Jean is busy with same thing with them that she reacts the same way with them. She's doing the same thing. Where she it's jeanette. Maybe it's the thing that genus don. I would like to blame gina away. The dog walker. You should really started with me before they even got involved with it. Okay wow so. She just tries to turn around and go home every time. She's a person even though she's excited to go out. Like if i go there and go and as you go out she gets excited and then we go three feet. She sees a person. she's like adhere. Wow and do you like the tug on the leashless. Yeah the dog thing might have in with another dog. That could really. Yeah man i anything. Cooper would be a good friend for one he. They live too far away too far away to bag as rose like the perfect dog. Yeah he is super busy loves dogs like she loves all dogs. I'd you posted something on instagram. Whimsey with bushy dog. That's her boyfriend dog okay. So that you take her push push epoch human. Do you take her to a dog park. Sometimes i do. I put her in there and let her run around the other dogs. Yeah sometimes i do. But every once in a while people bring a tiny dog in the big dog park and then wins. He thinks it's the rabbit at the racetrack man. Basis that yeah well. Yeah because this. This happened the very first time. I took her to a dog park story. No i didn't know explain this to me. I i take her to a dog park and it's a huge dog park and there's two huge dog parks separated by a fence. One is labeled small dogs right. One is labeled large dogs. So i take her in the large dog one large dogs and they're they're having a good time. It is a huge huge thing. This woman brings in a very tiny like a french bulldog type or smaller and the dog comes in and its way down on the other end and it starts running. Wim z like possessed chart. When after it. The dog was wearing a harness. She grabbed the by when she caught it. She grabbed the harness and was thrown at around. Man i miss. And i was trying to get her off and she looked like possessed in her is like she was locked in. Yeah crazy. I always the other owner. Doing nothing was no big deal off. Ron owners would be like all over you. That's what i thought would be attacking. Yeah no i guess it happens quite a bit. Maybe the dog likes to be dominated by large dogs. I don't know wait a second now. We're getting way too. So i got to be careful when i go to the dog parks now. If some somebody brings in a small dog. I gotta gotta watch it. Yeah isn't it amazing. How your whole perspective changes if you have dogwood anxiety like that. There's just certain things you can't do. Yeah like the ele- anxiety does not like strangers edited hates it. when there's somebody in the house flips out sweetest. Laziest dog in the world snores farts. Just below numbers around. If there's someone in the house to cheetahs and no i we have to put her in a crate. Even then she's bouncing off the thing all. That's jack's the rottweiler. Was good with me though. She was good with you. Because you've got that you got dog you got two dogs can tell you sat down. Here's the thing if someone's in the house working or has some sort of apparatus or something. She thinks that this person's in their kill us you came in like i'm here who's could cure and then you sat down and had the big bulldog head in your lap and then she loved you because you were there. You exuded that energy when someone's like with a task or vacuum or a hammer or something like that. It's like this person's here to kill the family. And i have to do something you know. It's it's amazing how these dogs just basically take on what their personality should be. Jack's the you know the hour so he always been very very and protective and then as soon as when he was worn it got worse and now forget it. i mean. it's like you have to know that. Somebody's coming to the house and of control him. But what happened is dana. Chara showed up at the door or he'd get eaten watched last night. But if you did disdain. Should never come near the martin's home. I texted you that picture. If you wanted to twin. I saw i saw it is. Yeah well i know. Looks like he's snap snapped right. Gotta like whimsey dog is funny over you and your dog stamps. That and you're looking at is like i don't even know you what happened. You know. yeah like she didn't snap out of it. Yeah come on. Hey just me. But they're put their dogs. That's thing right you know. We humanize them so much. And sometimes you forget that. There's there's an animal there and you know the amazing thing is and i'll say this after watching this last night mad hit another guy. Legally or illegally legal legally legally legally always been the rules of the game and these games gets chippy. And they're getting to the end of the season and it's all about you know playoff seeding and all that other stuff and you know immediately you hit a guy legally and then all of a sudden you gotta fight somebody sure mets idiotic in the nhl. That's the that's the one thing. I don't get it. I understand the fighting. I don't mind that but if you a guy legally you got you gotta fight now all of a sudden well. It's sorta like in baseball guy. Hits a home. Run celebrates them gets a ball thrown at his face. The same type of thing. Would you do wrong nothing. There's nobody celebrating her. It's just good solid. Hit y- physical situation right now. Yes that's right exactly could hard nose hockey as we're talking about round these parts. I'm jon meacham. Welcome to fate of fact season one. This series is about how and why fact became a casualty of war in the united states. Please listen and follow fate the fact a presentation of shining city audio a john truman. C thirteen original studio available now for free on odyssey apple podcasts. Or wherever you get your podcasts. The morning show with boomer. Esiason and greg nadi boomer and geo jerry recco is back. Tell you about all the sports happening around these parts. What's up jerry. Who really good day to be given away yankee tickets because last night a yankee win baltimore swung on and it or the air to center that buzz. High bar has gone dead center field. A stand tony. Homerun giancarlo nosy. Sto ballo he gets a six of the year and the yankees. Now take a five one lead. I love john. I hate that call home runs. So i mean you know. He's right but mean this is like classic i know. Does he had. He had a good post-season last year which was great. You don't take that away from him. But i mean still. It's still so much frustration between these meaningless solo nanda giancarlo well yankees one five one that did cap the scoring. Aaron judge homered as well. So did kyla gosh yoga couple of things from those two for judge. He sore so he came out in the ninth inning and for a guy she oak. He's going to be seeing some more starting time because he has earned it Here's higashi okay. He says that's really for everyone else to worry about. He just plays baseball. I don't really concern myself with you. Know who's gonna play. When i know if i'm if i'm blam of baseball more than likely i'll end up finding more playing time. This is really answering the other. I do see that very very important. start for corey kluber last night. Yes was hit by him. It was went into the seventh inning. Six and two thirds. He got the win on here. He says he can actually improve from. It's always a work in progress. Even even after a game like tight were the results end up being good. I mean i still think you can look at things and find areas where you want to improve. Are you into i'll s g because i know boomer you'll roy is are you into the new metric that is being shown on some of these broadcasts hard. Hit balls. I mean i understand. Why is a thing but no i. I'm not into that. I mean but it's basically like okay if a guy. It's it tells you if someone's about to break out of a slump right sure. That's that's sort of what it's used for. But the problem is there's just too much of it it's information overload. They so if a guy's either haven't successor is not having success of teams the winner. It's not winning. So i get tired of the numbers but if you're looking for someone who is like. Is he going to break out of a slump. Or is he not the hard hit ball rate. I guess is an indicator. Dj lemay mayhew's hard ball rate is down twelve percent from last year. I believe that's not good. It's concerning it. Anybody know what francisco lindores heart had ball rated. Yeah jet they hit it be able to yankees. Did trade mike. Tuchman the stockman. Do san francisco for reliever at one. The peralta mingle her mom the start tonight on the fan at six twenty five after carton and a roberts You also get louise raw. Louise row house on the fan with carton roberts today at five pm. He will come on after. The mets lost to the red sox last night two to one not much offense in this game but boston had just off. Eight home runs in a short amount of time. Eighty at bats lifts this deep torn right center field lars back forty s at the warning track. He goes up to the wally leaps. And it's gone. There's the first homer for bobby dalbec and one eight twenty one. It was an opposite field. Shot be nice if he slips at nineteen twenty one her last season nineteen twenty season would be perfect now batting wayne randazzo. Wcbs eight eighty dalbec. The home run their raphael. Denver's go ahead. Rbi single in the six red sox beat the mets to one. Here was alex. Cora no surprise to him that his guy garrett richards through seven innings and struck out ten for the win controlling amount good fastball. Curveball slider vision. Magi tell you what. The mets have not envisioned a nine and nine start. Not that it's terrible. It's just not as good as what they were looking for That said david. Peterson did throw. Well just didn't get a win. He was pleased with his effort physically. I feel good mentally. Feel good i bounce back and Spaniel have some some good starts after some not so good performances and so he hopes to build hitching one these team. They're not hitting. The red sox are fifteen and nine now. Well the red sox are hitting a you. were talking about. I thought you meant the red sox. No i'm talking about the mets and the yankees. Yeah no you're right about pitching's being relatively good for both teams is just. They cannot get the clutch hit and both lineups was supposed to be bomb squads bombing out alright and by the way. Both teams stayed relatively healthy. Which is even scarier. Here was lewis rojo's francisco endure might be one player. You're referencing in terms of not doing anything. He says linda will be fine. We just played game eighteen now in to one hundred sixty two so i think i think he is. Just gonna come to one day where he clicks and he's going to be hot. We'll see when that day. who knows. maybe he's like giancarlo no so parlow and he doesn't get going until may We will find out. Got six runs now but he has. He's been whatever. I don i would not call those start. Great yes it's not. Dominating has not been not for what he is and ken be Jacob degrom nick pavetti tonight six forty star at city field as these two teams. Wrap up their quick little two game series meantime. The blue jays got a monster game from very familiar name as they beat the nationals get bogged out overnight for laddy vladimir guerrero junior. Three home runs seven. Rbi's had a grand slam. Blue jays beat the nets nine to five. That was blue jays. Think that's buck martinez on the call blue jays tv slash radio. Because i think they're doing the simulcast thing they are as they're playing. Yeah i know it's pretty weird but As they continued their still in tampa correct that looking at video. Dun dun rite dunedin exactly right. The raptors are in toronto in tampa and the blue jays in dunedin reds. Beat the dodgers six to five. You also had. The cardinals beat the phillies. Five to two. And i'm gonna play this. Because i did not realize he was back for another season behind the mic. His name is bob euchre. And they are the brewers now the to strangle every year. It is swinging and a drive to saturday. Net is bob. Euchre on brewers radio. They beat the marlins five four guys trying to take over for bob. Euchre what he what. He's thinking die already. Yeah that's what. I would say because sixty five all leave. I mean what say in jerry. What how old is that supposed to be. Al believes everybody should get out at sixty five to move way for the next generation correct No no play by play all broadcasters why broadcasters because so many people want to be play by play you can't talk show host. Most people can't do this. We know that most people can play by play by play like ground ball. The second over the i. That's one out it's like it's less difficult than being a talk show host okay. Well i'm not going to disagree with you but it is difficult to be really good some bad ones. But pete but we're giving no opportunity to the next generation guys are broadcasting into the sixties late sixties. Early seventies retire at fifty. No retirement age. You tell me bob. Euchre doesn't have enough money to retire along. Let's get the next group of people out what's going to happen is there's going to be nobody when these guys you know eventually pass away. There's gonna be no one to do their jobs because we weren't getting anybody ready like what happened. When howard stern left all of a sudden we no one was doing morning shows because all the country put howard stern on everywhere then we had no new howard stern's so would you be the guy who would go to vin scully and thomas. Yes time to go. You would have fired vin scully. and how. He rose gary colin. Well gary cohen. What i think we checked. He still has a couple years left. But how are you. Say it's always sean sterling unfortunately waldman I'm not sure of her age. But if it's north of sixty five near than we have to move on. I just wanna get younger people into broadcasting and let them have long careers these people they hang on for al michaels forever like come on. So you've really nothing euchre like let stick around. Do friday games or something just like hello friends. Jim nance baby. The fans love bob. Ugur up milwaukee. I'm sure they do old people. yes you think. Young people are like handlers. The listen to bob euchre no way okay. And then they go. I can't believe baseball. so old. Yeah because everyone in it is old. Wow about how about john sterling on your hands. Enjoyed john sterling. I think old yankee fans do yes. I like that too. I think a twenty two year olds looking forward to john's. I don't think at twenty two. You're listening to yankee games on radio. We make that assumption now all the time with everything. I don't think twenty five nights doing anything. But i really no not with everything. i do. Think this specific instance. Though i have a podcast but i think we i think when i think when the teams don't like it when the when the play by play guys themselves don't step down the teams can't do it. The look mean right. That i agree with you know and and they'll be some sort of fake backlash speaking of this. You know that. Tnt tbs got the nhl rights while the packages and have barkley over there and basketball. Some dimwit said hey put barclay on the on the nhl broadcast and insult all of us hockey fans. You don't have to do that. You got your own guy to do this. You can get sean avery and put right in there. But they'll never put johnny. Why but. I texted john yesterday and i said look man you get your agent. Get somebody get my agent. Because my agent's pretty good get him and tell him to call the and t input sean. Avery on on a never happened. Why do you want old. And john avery. Safe sean every is would be perfect right. But he's too real. No one wants that anymore. By the way he set and you want to hear what he sent me say. Set me a a video. Okay at obviously you can hear what he said. He's with national his son air. It is ash until groomer. Were patrolling the streets right now. Making sure there's no speeders now. I know they won't do it. Well let us. He says all sorts of stuff all the time. Yeah he's crazy. Shot out there for those guys grandfathered in. They're not going to high in the cancel culture moving that they're not going to hire a guy like shown every is great man. Come on i would love to have. But they're not gonna do. They'll take some old guy who played hockey. I like a hundred years ago and the put him put him in there. Let's go plus it's tnt. Maybe let's say now. I don't know of course but then again like if you want eyeballs in you want guys that are going to say things that's the guy but they don't and the great thing. Is you watch his instagram. He'll do a game as an announcer. And you'll watch. Ike highlights take you through the highlights. He's gotta clean it up a little bit if he's got a mainstream tv but i think he's funny as hell. It's inside the nhl hosted by bob euchre on tnt. Bob old. When i was a kid right he was an old guy back. Then i'm going to be fifty two. I was a kid eighty seven. I was thinking about this last night. Because you know it's unfortunate that a lot of these announcers can't be at these games. So john will miss a thing here there you know. We'll make fun of him but he's not at the stadium when they're on the road so you know i personally love the rangers announcers. Okay sam rosen and joe mclarty. I've thought salmon j. d. were great j. d. left to go run. You know the the blues and the columbus blue jackets. Now is back on. The raiders and joe macleod. He's building seamlessly form. So i love those guys. Sam is not there at the games by the way bad news. Salmon seventy-three out gift is a ranger fan. I want him no no out seventy three out. Sorry colletti out. You guys are out. Go screw boomers used the same tone. Alright that my wife uses when. I'm on some irrational rant. Without and i honestly actually hit me like in the middle of al like just i've had it. He's the old guys doing these games. All right let's go to gina if you can find that it'd be hilarious as a drop these people who the park. It's a grocery store and a take it up to elaine and they leave the and she'll be like alright alright like enough no crazy person you relax over the dump that you did the same. They are rights. Wife's from pittsburgh right. She's not from here. So i had to acclimate herself to hear sure. And you probably being the cynical person that you are. 'cause you're from the south shore of island right. She's learned to deal with that. I love when she has those meltdowns on the road or something. The stuff that i have that she never used understand. Yes makes me feel so now. She's totally assimilated. Tommy live tolga told you wasn may. Is everything around us all right. Jerry where are you. where were you in this updates. finishing nets did beat the raptors one. Sixteen one zero three. They clinched a playoff spot in that game. You've got knicks bulls tonight knicks. Thirty four and twenty coming off their first loss and forever. They had one nine in a row. The celtics lost at home to the thunder who snapped a fourteen game. Losing streak believe it or not bucks beat the hornets last night. by ten Also of note the bucks. According to ian rappaport the tampa bay buccaneers bringing back antonio brown one year three point one million dollars so Antonio brown staying in tampa. That was ian rapoport about a half hour ago. I saw and it looked like it was two point one million followers. I think so okay. Well that's enough money to pay off his victims. So there you go. She's capitals. beat the islanders. One to nothing rangers over the sabres three one and the devils beat the flyers six four as they snappy tan game lou a losing streak and other thing too. What are you guys. Got to create your own liquor. Did you see what conor mcgregor on sold. This whiskey for boomer was texted me about dick last night. Hundred million dollars. And it's only his share of it. I know so that that company that bought it proxima. Oh yeah partic- meal or jose cuervo right. Yeah of course smells as well. Yeah they they are billionaires and they bought out the rest of the shares six hundred million dollars for that proper number twelve whiskey. That i hear is more like poop number twelve and that's what i heard not so good expensive poop. It's all marketing for. Put them in a couple of commercials. Turn around and sell for six hundred million. I know we need to know an alcohol guy. We need put our own. What do you think as vortex. We screwed up somewhere along the way we made a wrong. Turn down bob euchre. As opposed to sell alcohol six hundred million each the morning show with boomer esiason and greg boomer and geo we do have a very special caller on the line that i want to get to. It was waiting through the entire jerry. Update at bell bed. Megan sit there. But we got into the bob euchre debate and al wanting to fire john. Sterling suzyn waldman. Bob uber vin scully. He retired but our wanted to fire vin scully as well So we had young. People can't listen to wait to listen to bob. Euchre no way no way though. Is that it. Okay is it. Okay aright again. Any all right. Oh young people. I can't wait to listen to bob. Euchre no way okay. That's it right there. That's okay we got a crazy person enough. He got it out of your system now is that oh okay. Okay guy in morristown the great guy dom from cnbc. What's up guy. Hi it's guy for more. Hey man this is listen. You can enjoy this call. So we're expert thirty seconds. Okay so as you know Boomer i know you know this. It's earning season watching the cnbc obviously intently bowling reports. And then they went to commercial. So i was flipping around and i thought i stumbled upon the norwegian men After dark network. But it was actually. You must mean you are looking good man. You got the gun show out in that. Black t. booms thanks. I appreciate that guy. Yeah had to get my arms stand today this morning before we went on while we were on here because my arms are a little white. You're looking good. Looks like sicilian grandma. She said you're taking in a two and a quarter. That's that's not good now. Well actually but the thing is my highest was to fifty three so i still feel okay about myself So what were you trying to get in the nfl to fifty three. You can play nose guard for the champion.

I mean out walking whimsy at least got only knows what does on his time off. Jerry just i think i think jerry's nastiness just helps them to stay at the way. I mean a lot of calories. Actually i am worried about whimsy. I think it's time you know greyhounds. You typically need. You can't just get one. It's like an eminem. You gotta get two of them. They need they need partners. What i've heard. Yeah doing some research. On this you need another. Greyhound need another rescue greyhounds. And what do you think it's such a small place. I can't have three fin things literature and yes you can buy. I sent boomer. I sent edy peleton. Gio peleton bobby jerry. And how all total gyms right and you would think that we'd we'd have to see some results around here you would. You would say i mean. Shouldn't they take their lead from you. You got your on that bike road. Sixty miles i mean. You crushed it your sixty road. Sixty seventy zero. Seventy seventy six in. I rode seventy idiot. I can't read a map. You know me. i'm seasonal sometimes. Sometimes i'm not no. I'm out of season right now. Oh cut it. No no no. I'm not doing that. But that got totally misconstrued. I'm not doing that to try to lose weight. I'm doing that. Because i haven't been hydrating myself properly and i haven't been drinking enough water so i tried to like set a goal of drinking water. That's all you can overwhelm yourselves. And you're gonna find yourself in the er and that's the on how to got overwhelm mice cells by drinking too much water with you. Talking about the booms notes. You can do that. You can drink too much water. I'm not getting media man. I'm drinking just enough. Oh i told you. I tried to do the brady thing. I almost drowned. Yeah i'm not going that far. You really wanna see if it was gonna have the same effect on me that it has on him. Now obviously did not did not. Yeah got you sick by the matter by the way you know listen. I know you were a little concerned. Bitcoin what from sixty six thousand forty eight. I was not concerned. I did not panic at all not one bit. Because tesla sold their bitcoin or why. Oh no that's let's sending human you on top of your game. Let's all ten percent of that. Bitcoin holdings in may two hundred million dollars. They did sell cars. No it actually came over the weekend. There was some news out of china that they were gonna do some interesting things and plummeted back. I mean fifty five thousand again the the watches on for taking taking a powder and moving on to greener pastures and you get in a new host. You know by the way. I was thinking about this. You wanna to get younger boomer. In guns in the morning would be a tremendous show. He would not want to do this. He would not want to do that. Deal with his dad every day from four hours a day a mortgage far away as he could radio next stop nova scotia for gonna kinda move away. Come on read the ceiling. Busy but listen. I'm not worried about your mets yet. Although the quality you know he's oh for. The season took the golden sombrero last night. Jeff mcneil couldn't sneak can't find a hit. I'm not worried yet booms. I know you're not you got still at first place by the way everybody division is under five hundred except us. You get jake on the hill. Everybody i'm sure what's your face evans.

He's it's called little nitro now and you can. You can just hear him. He's gonna sound like that guy that does devils games with that hyphen. But i'll be tuning in no doubt right before. Cnbc's fast money five guy. That's why you're good guy to call and appreciate it later and guy for morristown more positive ranger fan than you are if you will follow him on twitter now. I do far more positive than you are your more my thing is i love the way the young kids are coming along and offer near starting to show that this is why he was the number one overall pick. He's starting to figure it out and why because they put them on a top line so guy and they dropped to third line which is fine. Crowder's planning the third line. I don't mind that but as long as years shows the ability that we've seen here over the last couple of weeks. Now you roy is that there is a bright future. The problem is is that they got off to a bad start because there were so young and add young goaltenders and those first fifteen games killed them yes. Oh guide tweeted out last night. rangers win. Islanders lose things. Get interesting and you to come in here. You're like the rangers. Have the rangers two more times. They also have buffalo two more times and they also have new jersey two more times. Sure in boston one more time but it you know it's like you got to look at the schedules and you got to see how these teams are playing you know new jersey's they're trying it's just they can't stop anybody. Yeah and the islanders can't score against anybody but the rangers. But i'm just saying you could be a little more positive about your sky. I'm very positive seasons about the over for you might as well goal in a lot of young town. I think the future is going to be great. And i told you if it were a normal season normal schedule normal set up. They would be in the playoffs now. It's just that this way. This thing is all broken down there.

We decided that now was just a terrific time to get into another mount rushmore episode. So brand decided. We're going to attack the cleveland indians and give you a breakdown of what we think the four best players on the cleveland indians entire history would be. We're very excited about this. Bright brad are very excited and you know what brig i think. Full disclosure is due on this that this is much harder for both of us than we thought it was going to be in because personally i don't i didn't know anything about the indians. Hardly pre nineteen ninety. Five when they played the mariners. Lcs cs pretty much tell you that entire ninety five roster top to bottom because i watched him for six games and they've been stuck in my mind ever since but before that i didn't know anything about them. Besides you know major league right right and for me. There's only really one. I knew one thing about them. Pre nineteen ninety five. But i'm with you. I'm this is very similar so we're definitely going to get into the one thing i knew about them. That was pre nineteen ninety-five very good. And you know. I don't even know how old i was. But as far older than i should have been when i found out that bob euchre is not actually the play by play guy for the indians right right. That was disappointed was like six months ago. I might as well been feels that way. Does it not yes sir. Agree with you Funny so sure she we work. We're going to the way we do these. Mount rushmore episodes. Baseball family is we. We move in no particular order. This is such tedious experiment. Trying to figure out who ranks where and you know why and ultimately it comes down to these are the four best in no particular order so right brad. Why don't you give us your first selection. Not your first choice. I just the first name on your list. I selection first choice k. So i'm going to go with kenny. Lofton on my mount rushmore He okay yeah. I mean he's not hall hall of famer but to me like having watched the indians in the mid to late nineties. He was an iconic piece to those teams. That were very very good. I mean he led the league in stolen bases ninety two ninety three ninety four ninety five and ninety six and had a total of four hundred and fifty two stolen bases with the indians of his six hundred twenty two career stolen bases glover four time gold glover and you know he has a light where he jumped up on the on the fence. Just like most guys back. Then or now i guess Rob a big very important home. Run to me. He had a strong defensive presence in the outfield. Strong offense at presences a guy could get on base and score runs for you. He was the willie. Mays hayes a real life at all for you. Willie mays hayes. Oh man major league referenced. Officer two yeah but yes kenny. Lofton is my first choice for mount rushmore. That's great that's terrific. Ready for the overlap. we're about to experienced. Yes go ahead. it's not it's not kenny. Lofton for those of you wonder. Okay my name. I could one of the names. I could not get away from. Was jim thome me. I just can't you can't talk about cleveland without talking about jim told me and i don't think that will come as any surprise to people. Five time all star hall of famer. He's silver slugger award winner. Seventy two point nine war okay. That's that's huge. Now the best thing for me about jim thome e and his career in cleveland was that nobody cared about jim. Thome me when he was coming up in fact he spent a bunch diamond. The minor leagues bounced around here and there Worked on this worked on that. They actually moved his official position to first base late When he was up and back and forth back and forth back and forth between aaa and major leagues so for me his kind of cinderella story his redemption is as much of a testament to his career as his statistics are and i think it's awesome and he's a great just a i think he was signed by cleveland. Right out of high school and then went to do co. or something for a while and then he came back and was signed by cleveland again. Something like that. i mean they. They had their eye on him for a really long time. And i just think that I just think he's great plus that that look on his face is just so just perfect right beneath chief one is i won't i can't get into it but if you know what i mean you know what i mean. You know what i mean. I don't know it's me because brig actually my next guy list. You right the overlap. I knew her and you know what like you said. Hall of famer and one of the things. That always drove me crazy. I hated gym told me as a player absolutely hated him. Because you knew that if he was up and the indians or you know later on the phillies or whoever. He was playing for white sox if they needed a home run if they needed a home run he was gonna hit it yeah. He did every time he wouldn't do. Otherwise typically because he wasn't like a big home run guy which is funny to say. Because i mean he had seasons where he hit forty nine hundred forty seven forty two but those are kind of outliers seasons like he was a thirty home. Run guy and twenty home run guy. Five thirty yeah. Yeah but if they needed a he always had it in him. Clutch player man always. I always had it in. He was absolutely clutch. And i get so mad every single time. He come up like kelly. They need to three run home. Run right now. He's gonna hit it he's gonna he's gonna hit it. Yeah so yeah absolutely. I mean just based alone for me off the test. Based on what i saw the guy does. Yeah that that. I mean that speaks to our ninety five ish progression with cleveland but again It's hard to get away from it. Daily statistics speak for themselves. You can't argue with seventy two point nine war each can't that's what the statistics. Yeah yeah for sure. If i think i think jim thome aid definitely belongs on the indians. Mount rushmore hundred percent. Thank you thank you very much k. Brig we've done to him. I want to go ahead and do one of yours and then we'll take a break k. Now i'm going to come at you with some kind of interesting statistics i before it tell you anything about this player k. By graphically i mean career war one thirty four point two slow at that sink in one. Thirty four point two. We're talking ten thousand one hundred ninety five at bats. Thirty five hundred hits one hundred seventeen home runs a lifetime batting average at three forty five on base percentage four twenty eight slugging at five hundred opie s. nine twenty eight. I'm talking center fielder. Trysts speaker tryst speaker played in. He played from one thousand nine hundred seven to nine hundred twenty eight twenty two year career and he with cleveland four. Excuse me let me get back to my notes here. He was with cleveland. Four from one thousand nine hundred sixteen to nineteen twenty full ten years with the club and just during that period when he was with the club he boasted a seventy four point. One nine war so again. That was fifteen hundred games Sixty six hundred plate appearances on and on and the guy is just an all-star me come on seriously yeah. Those are legit numbers especially during the time. Yeah and mrs deadball era. This is dead ball. So the that's crazy. He led the league in games. Played in one thousand nine fourteen and in hits that same year he led the game in doubles a bunch of years. I mean we're talking. Nineteen twelve nineteen sixteen eighteen nineteen twenty twenty one twenty two and twenty three r b is he was he pulled in one hundred thirty. Rbi's in nineteen twenty-three led the league that year. This is he was an mvp one time. He's in the hall of fame. Three time world series champion batting title champion. I mean if we had guys like this today the whole the game would be totally different. Feel like this is. These are insane numbers so on. It's crazy you mentioned that because now you've got guys winning the batting title but their teams don't win exactly. Yes it's almost like everybody should get a trophy or something. It's almost like there should be salary. Cap take the owners from themselves. I don't know nah come on brad. Almost like the collective bargaining agreement should be reading. Go she hated at the end of the season or something along the same vein with the suggestion like that. Come on now all right. Let's take a break when we get back to final mount rushmore guys. Each welcome back baseball family. So we as per usual overlapped on one of our mount. Rushmore members Inductees is at the is that the right word inductees. I think now. I'm knees anyway. Maybe we maybe. We're only nominating him. I don't know at best. That's all the power we have say authority we can have selves by royal decree lady of the lake extended fourth her. Anyway i went. First last time brig. I want you to go i again. I know it's basically what you're doing three in a row i want. I want you to the next one all right. I have no problem with that. I am to go with. I'm in fact. I'm gonna tease you the same way. I did last time when to give you some statistics before i think this player standing six one weighing in at one hundred ninety pounds. No we got a career war of one zero seven point three career batting average. Three thirty eight eighty two home runs now. Now listen eighty two home runs. That's small all right. I know that. But i like small ball and we're going back to the dead ball era for nap. Lajoie wanted to guess. I knew who it was because i had to. Did you have nap. Lajoie swell. I have napa joy as well. Yeah no idea now. it's joie are you sure yes. It's a french name. Also guide the pronunciation guide on baseball reference dot com listed as nap. Lajoie which is what. I thought it was going to be. Some people say napoli's way now that's fine because it's also referenced on baseball reference dot com but it's joie that's how i should read a pronunciation guide for once in my life it's right finds pine had him two years. Your number three guys. Well well he was on the list i was. I mean it was the third one you were going to reveal. Well i was going to last but it's okay we can do him now stu now so this is this is. The thing is the thing that i have with nap. Lajoie is that k. Not only is he a hall of famer. He wanted triple crown three time batting title. But he was a player manager for the cleveland indians. That but here's the thing. Let me pull it up real quick. I had to switch windows phone quick so he was a player manager for a number of years. I say as i filibuster wise. Scroll down he. He was a manager. Starting nine hundred zero five and was the manager until nineteen o nine and he was also a player during that time and then he kept playing beyond their best player in one thousand ten but he was the best player and the manager at the same time. That takes a lot of work. You've gotta be really good to be able to both of those and also be the best player in. Let's see was. I've got nineteen ninety six or seven and oh nine. He was the best player and manager stunning. That's legit that's that's that's that's having coached baseball. I can't imagine playing and coaching no for sure. And so he played with cleveland from nineteen o two to nineteen fourteen. And here's what kills me. He was aged twenty seven to h thirty nine when he was playing for cleveland during that period. So this gets it gets even better. He played second base first base and shortstop during that period while he was a manager for part of it. now that's a utility infielder. Think about it. We have a utility infielder who split time as a manager for at least a few years in there he still manages a seventy nine point ninety six war during that time period. I mean this is crazy guy. Hit thirty four home runs drove in nine hundred nineteen rbi just in his time in. Cleveland stole two hundred forty four bags. Come on this is insane ceo. It'd be like having that would be like having Mike trout manage or francisco. Lynn door there. You go or even. Mookie betts managing the show. Yep it would be it. Curls no would be like it would be like Digi lemay humanitarian at the same time last season this year ago winning the silver slugger nomination for golden glove in the runnings for mvp all the same time. Yeah man these names this. This kind of stuff is what makes me like when people ask me if you could go back and watch anybody play. It's guys like this. I wanna watch. Yes i would like to see. The manner seem out on second base signaling to the batter even the third base coach. What i you know. I'm gonna steal. This is the. Here's what you're going to do. Oh yeah that would be a lot of fun to watch. It would be a whole lot of fun to watch. I do miss the days. And by that i mean i never saw them but i long for the days of player coaches in any sport because like bill. Russell was a player coach. The boston celtics right. And i would love to see that the coach you got no. I'm good. He's down the bench kind of stuff. I would like to see nap. Lajoie orla joy depending on your level of cultural program. It is just okay. I have one more Because like i said my nap lajoie was on my list. I bet we're going to overlap on this one as well Man if we don't i'll be it would be insane. Okay all right. My last one is a pitcher. You don't know it is six feet tall coming in at one hundred. Eighty five pounds. Deserve hall of famer did not play from nineteen forty to nineteen forty four. This is bob feller. Bob feller triple crown winner yet. He's he's one of the greatest pitchers of all time. We'll watch fastball. The documentary fastball. And they talked about bob feller and how hard he threw have frayed a pitcher he was and you know. We've we've talked about pitchers winning the cy young and the mvp and he was top five for the mvp one four times. Yep triple crown winners eight time all star world series nineteen forty eight. He won the er a title and the major league player of the year. One year donning but this is a great example of where war will come and bite us. Got a sixty three point four war. It's much lower than some of the people we've been talking about on this list right exactly and that's a career career at three point two five. Here's the big take. Yeah go ahead. Here's a big one for strikeouts. Starting in third one thousand nine thirty eight to forty two forty six to sixty one to sixty three years oftentimes Looks like for world. War two came back pitch. Nineteen forty five had fifty nine. Albert nineteen forty-six is right back at three forty eight hundred ninety six one sixty four and those and he led the league in all of those. Yeah for seven played for eighteen years. that's seven seasons. Well yeah sorry. Seven seven seasons out of his eighteen year career led the league strikeouts yell and in in nineteen forty-six he started forty two games at thirty six complete games. Ten shutouts and somehow did not win the mvp that year. I don't know how okay ray for this to be a run away with it for now. But yeah he threw three no hitters three twelve one hitters. That's insane. He holds the club record for strikeouts at two thousand five hundred eighty one and he has a club record for innings pitched at three thousand eight hundred twenty seven. I mean that's that's crazy. He's got the club record for. Wins at two sixty six over one sixty two and this is the best part ready for this. I found this. You're gonna love this. The indian signed this is from cleveland. Sports talk dot com. The indian. Signed bob feller as a teenager for one dollar and an autograph baseball. Yep that's right. He made his major league debut. Seventeen years old in nineteen thirty six And how did his this cheeky. How did his debut go question. Mark he struck out fifteen batters. Of course he did albeit razi. That's crazy to think about this seventeen year old doing that. You don't have how many how many young how many young kids go that long. And their major league face fifteen batters and our major league debut. Now no please and they're not seventeen. Not even close. Twenty-one no not at least twenty three twenty four exactly so okay on opening day. Nineteen forty bob. Feller became the first and only pitcher to ever throw a no hitter on opening day. He threw a no hitter on opening day. Nineteen forty. That is just bonkers. That's midseason form mid-season forum. That's was. I can't even believe it. Man he owns. Yeah every pitching record in club history every single one which isn't surprising only part of that is because he pitched for the he pitched for the indians for eighteen years Especially now we don't see that as with guys who are top. Tier pitchers yep Especially with the indians because they actually said this week they couldn't afford to build a team around around francisco indoor and that's why traded him yet you know they're definitely not gonna do that with the pitcher they're not gonna keep him around but these these These club records are gonna stand forever. These ones for cleveland for sure. Oh yeah never gonna change. Yeah definitely that. They'll they'll always be popular for that reason. Well anyway the same team. That's also unheard of these days. Pretty cool i love that. Yeah yeah it is. It doesn't happen often anymore either. we'll see with mike trout but can't think of anybody off top my head who also happened with but Break before before your episode. Let's let's do this baseball family. We want to know who you think belongs on the cleveland. Indians mount rushmore. My way off base with Kenny lofton or does he belong. Let us know we want to hear who you think belongs on that. The mount rushmore. Especially if you're indians fan because you have a better understanding of the team in the history than we do We did obviously a pretty superficial research based on our knowledge of nineteen ninety five and on what we saw statistically through the years. So let us know if there's somebody in that that we missed who belongs on the mount rushmore. Instead of say. Kenny lofton.

And so we brought home the Marconi ward, which is the highest award you could win in radio. So thank you very much honored to be able to win miss twice. Now in the last four years. All right, coming up. We'll talk to Hannah storm sportscenter anchor broadcaster, and she was part of the broadcast last night on Amazon prime videos live streaming of Thursday night football. Now Hannah worked with Andrea Kremer last night. So we'll talk to her about that new job that new challenge and she'll join us on a couple of minutes here. Also the great Bob euchre hall of fame broadcaster brewers play by play announcer. He's been there since nineteen seventy-one. And had a run where he was his famous as anybody. He was a household name, had a sitcom. He would be on Johnny Carson show. He was not a great baseball player, but was great and making fun of his baseball career. He did the Miller lite commercials star of major league. I think he's probably known more for guy who's broadcast bour games for what forty eight years now for being the broadcaster and major league because he was the hammer and major league that movie and he was just so good. They're so Ukwa join us coming up in a little bit poll question mclovin. What do we have? Okay. Who would you have taken the first pick of our Dan Patrick show quarterback draft the choices being Jared, Goff, costume Wentz Sam darnold Patrick Mahomes and air. Rogers, Rogers leading at thirty seven percent then Mahomes at second thirty one. Now they know that you get Aaron Rodgers for the next five years that that's yeah, I guess they know. Okay. Yeah. Polling Rogers is thirty five. But again, he's played one hundred ten fewer games than. Breeze and Brady he's played seven fewer seasons of football, but he's been injured more than they have. Yes, he's he's had more injury. I mean, Brady of the injury when when Paul hit him but drew Brees had the injury when he was in San Diego. Yes. Mclovin. Do you want to know the results Sam darnold. Ever seen animal house zero point zero zero. They don't understand that you took fifth. That's okay. It's all right. Check with me in three years. I think Baker would have done better. We all want it Baker. Okay, but we all judgy the last game. Okay. Are you going to stay on the air until Sam? Darnold ballers just validate until Sam is good. I'll continue to do this job. You know he's on the jets, right? Yes, I do. I do them. Not on my draft. He's like, I'm taking him. That's the factor that you? Yeah, your advantage, you get him out of the jets. He's great. All right, Hannah storm sportscenter anchor broadcaster and part of the broadcast team, Andrea Kremer in Hannah. The Amazon prime videos live streaming coverage, eleven Thursday night football games, and it started last night, not a bad debut to have that game, Hannah. How did it feel last night. No kidding. I mean, can you believe that so many types sounds so much fun. That Rams offense is as a blast. I mean, they were scoring so quickly. So yeah, it was great. It was really, really fun. Loved it, a lot of action. So I don't think he could have dialed up a better game like it was something really slow. I think it would have been a lot for. Okay. The approach to this, is there an approach? We'll give me your approach if you're trying to make it different. You know, it's when they approached us, they just they just they wanted our sensibility. They just wanted out or voices sort of, you know what, you know the way we were seeing the game. So it's really interesting because they weren't setting out to have a quote, unquote female broadcast. They didn't like scour the country and the interview a bunch of people. They literally came to the two of us, and if we were going to do it, they just weren't going to do it. So that was cool. Right? So that Celt like, okay, this is a, you know, the first thing they said is this isn't a gimmick. We want the two of you guys. We have to English guys with soccer backgrounds doing it. You know, we have a couple of Spanish dies doing it last year. They had to Argentinian announcers, and so they're providing different options for their customers. So you know if I had to characterize what it was? Well, I think it's a combination of kind of, you know. It. It definitely play by play. It's definitely the story of the game, but it's not, you know, play breakdown, play breakdown, play breakdown, you know, the kind of like we're used to watching. I would say there are a lot more stories behind it. We had a ton of conversations with people. You know, a lot of the players, the coaches and so forth. You know, as most broadcast teams do and talk to some other people, you know, certainly about what the competition committee was talking about yesterday and things like that with the roughing, the passer, and then we still, you know, just a lot of backgrounds. Again, research talk to family members of some players. So sometimes you can get those stories in flow game. And sometimes obviously the football takes over and you're just, you know, basically talking football the whole time you're married to Dan Hicks who is done play by play his entire career. You probably have that, but. What advice did your husband give you? Well, and the funny thing is Dan, you've had both of us on in one week. I mean, so yeah, my real as opposed to you, my fake husband who everyone thinks actually married to his really hilarious. So, yeah. They haven't come near to you by the way Dan Hicks or Fred Sigmund by virtue of his name. So I mean, what can I say? But anyway, you know, dance. That dance said the same thing that actually to Rico, says me, the Chris calls were to me and it was. It was have fun and be yourself. And I thought that was just a great piece of advice and keep it simple, right. No. I mean, the tendency to go in when you're doing something you've never done, and some things don't have experience doing is to obviously I was over prepared for it in some ways. And then I was prepared not to use anything that I prepared. You know what I mean? Like you over prepare for something and then you don't know kind of what types of information you really need until you actually do it. And then he just said, keep it really simple. So I did. I mean, if I don't know something, I don't say it if it I don't try to get too fancy too technical, just I really. We really try to stay in my wheelhouse because I just wanted to keep it a clean broadcast definitely made takes, you know, it's one of the things is Dan, you know, we're taking the FOX feed. We are three thousand miles away and we don't know what they're doing. So you know, things will pop up. And so you know, sometimes you know that that makes it awkward also, you know, and then we lay out those guys come on camera. There's like all sorts of kind of thing that are unusual. Like we don't have control of the telecast all that having been said, you know, I don't overextend myself. I really try not to. I mean, unless they really know what I'm saying or really understand the sufficient Andrea so football savvy to, you know, she's been her whole life and career. She can break down, you'll coverages and you know, she can talk about the routes and talk about the plays. And I mean, she's just fantastic. So I would say that we really complement each other and we deaf. Definitely lean on each other. You know, the thing on beauty of having Andrea Kremer there is no one. And I mean, no one will outworked her. She will find story like she's exhausting to be around because she's she's going to track down whatever the information is. By the way. Fritzy does a pretty good. Andrea Kremer if let me let you great. This Hannah here says, here's Todd. I see ready. Thank you, Dan, I got a chance to speak with case keenum as the Broncos get ready to host Patrick Mahomes and the chiefs, and that should be in the AFC west. This coming Monday night with the Broncos. Andrea Kremer ESPN. So funny you like my husband, my husband, you know, he's great at that, right. You know, what is great about this for my dear Andrea, who I adore and love is that she's talking so much on the fly and she she remember so much. He's very, very smart. And so it's cool because as you see her, you know, just really sit there and like like break, you know, break down what's happening on the screen, and she has all these notes. She's an entire wall covered with all this incredible resource use and all these conversations. But it's awesome because you know, she has to just remember it and look at the television, which is cool, which I've, I've always loved. I love live. I mean, come on. So do you, you know, that's that's just a blast. But where were you when you're testing that? So you're not in Los Angeles? Gosh. We're in, you know, we're in like guards basement. I mean, we're literally. We're in this like here you go a little room and in San for Connecticut, and we're there across the hall from us or the are the are the UK guys. And next to us are the the Spanish broadcasters. And it's really funny because before the game, you can hear everybody, you know, talking and their accents and different languages about different things. And you know, watching the pre game show and this is terrible, actually, really, really cool. People had a really hard time finding it last night. So if the people are complaining about that, you really, you have to go to the audio setting. It all comes emanates from the live feed from FOX. You have to go to the audio settings and like click which audience setting you wanna watch it. Obviously, gonna watch, you know, I mean, Joe and Troy, or you know the best at what they do. So we're not, you know, we're trying to beat those guys. They were being ourselves that that's like the simplest way I can put. Obviously, I mean, they've been at that protect gays at the very pinnacle of their career. And this is a tried to be like them or Allen Chris, or you know anybody like this is just us being us and in talking about the game from our perspective. And you know Amazon's able to gauge audience reaction in real time, which is really cool, right? And they got a, they got really positive reaction. So it's pretty psych, you know, for the first game out and then and then we have ten more, you know. So we're probably going to be a hope, God, let's hope so we pray that we are, you know, light years better by the end of this. Well, congrats just gotta do it. Yeah, you gotta get reps that that's the the clips man like Sam darnold you know, you're right. The guy you're talking about this bungee jump, you know, just go. And yeah, you do. Well, congrats.

She's anchoring sports centres coverage, Saturday, and Sunday mornings on ESPN along with special NFL dish of Monday afternoons, but then Thursday night with Andrew Kramer. They are broadcasting providing commentary and analysis. Amazon prime video live streaming coverage. So they got eleven Thursday night games. Andrew Kramer will find the story. She'll track down the story. She'll talk to seven sources on a story, whatever it takes is going to get that story. So I can just imagine the mountain of information she had for this Thursday night game, and you know Hannah in there, you just kind of directing traffic and telling stories there, you know two different commentary, but I think on, you know, when you have to pick what language you want or if you want Troy and Joe, I think it just said women on the setting there where you just punch in. If you want to hear the women broadcasting the game last night, I think that was the setting that they had. All right. Take a break.

We somehow make the smooth segue to hall of fame broadcaster brewers, radio play by play announcer since nineteen seventy-one actor comedian all around great guy, Bob euchre you, how are you today you doing. You doing again. It's good to talk to you. How much fun is this season been for you? Well, you know what? The deal they made, Dan and the acquisitions, a couple of guys have really been been, you know, really impact players for the club talking about Lorenzo Cain and and Christian yelich it. It's been a fun season for not only not only me, but fans here in Milwaukee. And I mean with the expansion of the rosters and the up and down, do you can do with the with the ten days for the minor leagues back up again, I mean, you got guys moving all all season long hair. I mean, it's a constant movement and it was a fun club. It's a fun club. It's a good bunch of guys, and I think if you if you talk to anybody connected with the club, that's that's what they tell you. It's kind of a, it's kind of a, we bunch of guys not not too many guys and David Stern. Earns mad Arnold who made made these moves and really going all out to make a run. You know, it came to fruition. And here they are coming back to Milwaukee for the final three games and a shot at postseason play for a while. Who's Christian yelich remind you of. Roy rogers. Okay. Why. No, I, you know. Wait the way he plays. Does he come on goofball. No, he's, he's those guys. You know, they don't come along too often. I mean, the guy can run. He can play in the outfield. He can throw he hits with power, he's hitting forever any. I'm telling you as one of those guys that never says me or I, he doesn't. And you know, a fun guy to be around is, I mean, the club in General, Dan is is a bunch of good guys. The Dominican players. No, I don't care where they're from. It's one. It's one big unit and guys like, hey, sues Aguilar who who's a huge dude, fun guy, Orlando RC. I think it's going to be one of the best shortstops in baseball down the road here. I mean, everybody they got on this club has contributed and and made it made it really fun season. I mean, it got a little testy every once in a while, you know. But for the most part it, it's been good. It's been a lot of fun. How did you celebrate clinching a playoff berth the first time in seven years? Yeah, it was. It was a little testy for me. My pacemaker kicks out a lot. A lot of clouds my arm to rotate in a starting out for voter that that got a little test. But what other than that it was. Okay, you know, I, I wrote home soaking wet and it, but it was fun. Everybody on board was was really nice. I didn't shower because it would have thrown me off off my game. You know, at the home, we do that at the home every night. I don't know why these guys. The home every night. At your peak, what role would you would you play on this brewers too? I would have probably been the guy opening the ball. That would have been my job. As a matter of fact, I might not have been on the forty man roster at this time. Well, yeah, this this is. I mean, I'm, you know the clubhouse celebration Ben you. You've been around them, you know what they are and and to to do it on the road and do it in Saint Louis was a Lexus special because the cardinals knocked them out last year in that final series in Saint Louis and Colorado went on to win. So it was a little satisfaction for for the brewers and the crew to do it in in Saint Louis to sweep the series. And now the cubs and the and the cardinals get it on insane in Chicago, starting tonight in the brewers have have Detroit here at Miller park talking to Bob euchre hall of fame broadcaster. Did you keep all of the tapes your appearances on the tonight show Johnny Carson. Do you have the archives of those appearances? Stuff is on it. He's of tape. To here. But no, I didn't keep that stuff. I had such a good time with Johnny all the time. I never did anything on that show Dan to to promote anything. I one on one particular show I was doing that Mr. Belvedere series and I was gonna sing gonna, change my ammo from a writer to a singer, and I sign on the tonight show and and and I sang off key really bad. So Johnny asked me said, when is the show gonna plan? I said Thursday. He said Thursday, bowling. But then I blamed it on doc severinsen that we didn't have a chance to work out together. But no, I had I had a good time with Johnny all the time. I mean, I really did push straight me, but first time you go on, I, I don't know if you get nervous or not. I don't know going to the plate, you know facing sandy Koufax is more nerve racking than you know going on the tonight show. But if you were going to compare the two, how nervous where you going on the tonight show I the first time I did it was nineteen sixty nine and they were. They were still in New York, and I little tight about it, but it went pretty well. And as we said, goodnight, I heard Johnny. I heard Johnny Aspen, Ed McMahon. He said that this guy really played baseball. Back to weeks later and from there on, you know, I don't know four or five shows a year and always had a good time with always, but then you get Mr. Belvedere you get the Miller lite commercials as well. I mean it all just like there was a there was a time when you were you and John Madden and maybe Cosell in there you guys were at the peak there? Well, it was a lot of fun. You know, I didn't do anything to promote myself. I would just doing things to have a good time when I was playing baseball. Mice out was two thousand dollars under the minimum. Which one the union. Upset about it, but that was no big deal either. You know, I I, I had a winter job. We all for the most part when you're playing back in the fifties and sixties, we had off season jobs and you had to have it because you weren't making enough money unless you are one of the, you know, the big guys. What was your worst off season John. I, I worked construction outside. So long. And that was kinda tough. I was working on frozen pipes from laboratories and senior citizens homes, and that got to be a little test. Your hands are always cold. So I can't touch yourself either. So I mean, wash your face, your hands are freezing. I mean, it's it's tough. It was a tough job, but I had four kids and I still I, I still don't know where they are. No, I always had a good time at I. I got a chance to play. I played and I played the big leagues and but I also like to make people laugh. Have you got a minute, I'll tell you about one of the great place. Yes. And it was always spring training game. What still I had a chance to knock in the winning run against the Orioles down to Miami is a runner at third, this really to outs I hit a rocket down the third base line and I'm going out of the box. I know I, I got a base hit right now. I see Brooks Robinson make diving stab, and he's in follow territory. Now. I know there's gonna be a play at first. I see boop how breaking for the bag, right? So now I really start busting on the line and I had a little habit of knocking my hat with my phone. So it looked like I was really moving and as I get close to the bag boop, how is gonna take the throat now, all of a sudden he starts backing off the bag and I, I got a base hit knocked in the winning run. And as I just about step on the bag, I see a gloved down there with a ball, and it was Brooks Robinson tagging the bag. Is the only five unassisted player. You just you just did beat me, but. To if the brewers win the World Series. Finish that sentence. I will pay suit the Grand Canyon. Don't do that look like a fun. That would that's not a walk off for you though, is that if they win the World Series that you just a walk. Yeah, you would retire if the brewers won the World Series? No. Are you kidding? Okay. All right. Japan and try to catch the next year. He never saw me play. Could you catch a pitcher right now? Oh, absolutely. Picture pitcher, Billy light. You never dropped one of those though. You know, no passed balls. Congrats though. Been a great run for this team, a lot of fun, and hopefully they generate some excitement here in the playoffs. Always great to catch up with you. Thank you guys later. Good being with you. That's Bob euchre hall of fame broadcaster and he's been doing it. I think forty eight years. They've only made the playoffs seven of the forty eight years. When a treasure though. And when I went there to Milwaukee, when we had the sausage races and then fritzy throughout the first pitch in, then I got to visit with you. I went up into the booth and talk to him prior to the game, and he just everybody just will gather around him because they know that he's just gonna tell stories, and he would get on the tonight show and he just had this unbelievable delivery that Johnny just ate up. Johnny Carson would just he would set up. You can Ukwa just go, but but at the time that was the biggest stage. You could have late night TV. By far you were famous overnight. All you wanted to do was get you wanted one shot at the tonight. Show. But he had a great run there where you do four times a year and whatever he came on, it was always must see TV because he just would tell these stories, and he was so self deprecating because most people get on and talk about how great they are. His greatness was to talk about how bad he was and then have essentially humor. Yeah, fritzy. So quick on his feet. A lot of comedians are like just now when he made that pitcher joke, it's not prepared material. He can just jump off anything that said that he's not prepared for and just come up with like a winning line right away. Yeah, he's a as a treasure a whole Famer, these local broadcasters. And I don't know if people listen to the radio like they used to. I know when I grew up, I was there when Marty Brennaman I started with the reds but l. Michaels was the broadcaster before that. And Marty Brennaman is still doing games in a whole fame broadcaster. Locally, you would have Jack buck. All these different broadcasters around the country every team, it felt like you had somebody and once they had those jobs, they held onto those jobs. Yup. I remember in college, listening to checkbook doing karnal games and Jack was an, I'm sure there's many other geniuses. He would let it breathe between at bats at between pitches and you'd hear like the clap, clap clap of the hot dog vendor or fans yelling out stuff or the cracks of the the noise. He wouldn't step all over everything. None of them did. I always thought doing radio. Was it would be easier because you got to describe everything you got to take in all the sounds that you almost give people that sense of you could smell the ballpark, the hotdogs that like everything about it, you just sort of had it in front of you, and that's where Vince gully was so great that even VIN on TV and he was doing radio was still able to bring that description to you. But even if you're watching on TV, he's still pointing out things that you wouldn't see. But I very fortunate to have Marty Brennaman and the late Joe nuxhall calling games for the big red machine. But that's what I grew up with. So when you're when I was thinking of baseball teams, I'm like, had the big red machine and when broadcasters I had a hall of fame broadcasting, that's what I grew up with. So you just sort of expect greatness after that. I will take a break on this meet Friday. We'll come back close up shop last call for phone calls. Final results of our poll question.

Go around the room. What we learned on the program college football weekend. Stanford, Notre Dame is sneaky because I think we're gonna find about find out about both of these teams at Notre Dame. You got to four, no teams who else is on the menu. There paulie keep an eye on Syracuse, Clemson in case it goes, if in Syracuse, I know since you're accused Virginia, Texas Tech. Okay. And of course Ohio State Pence? Yes, Ohio State Penn State because you get the feeling that one of those one of those two teams will be there on the final feels like a plane game in late September. Yes, for two sneaky, Michigan, northwest. Eastern game at northwest fritzy wants to call the upset. I want you you three hours ago you wanted to call. This is a lot of pressure on the hob, either call it or not northwestern by two. Twenty nine twenty seven when Wildcats seven. All right. What which Michigan favored by her. Fair back. Nine, nine, nine and a half. You're getting Michigan after the big win against Nebraska. They may let down on the road against north western, just something north western. Get ready for these big games like they're, they're big bowl game. Yeah, I got Michigan given fourteen points teen. Wow. I'm surprised at that. You can't go into Evanston with that. Oh, Evanston fourteen and a half. Best NFL games this weekend. Dolphins, patriots is sneaky dangerous. Just from the standpoint of if the patriots lose the game, Ben, all of a sudden it's the end of the world. That's it. It's, it's finally come to an end for Bella check and Brady it'll be the end of the world and a patriots fan who is calling for the patriots that they won't make the plan here. Seton O'Connor, once again, inches closer to one of the great predictions of all time. So cl- at said, they would start own four and get their first win week five, which obviously we didn't work out, but I was one play away from them that went down to the final play. They lose this week, man, pretty close, pretty close effort to it's easy to say the two primetime game steals ravens Broncos juicy. But I think something about Baker Mayfield come into Oakland can put Jon Gruden to Owen four and can Mayfield show once again that he's got some magic take Cleveland to somewhere special. I'm curious about that to see how it goes on the road because the hype is been the build up his too much right now. He came in and he beat the jets at home. And you know, that doesn't mean that there was a coronation here that we know exactly. I, I love what I saw, but. You're going to go out to Oakland. I'm sure Gruden will have something down if he only had a pass rusher though. But I think that let me see how Baker Mayfield does on the road club. How about that bucks at bears? That's great. I bet you we could easily be talking about that Monday morning and why would we be talking Fitzpatrick? I mean, will they start patch? Will he get pulled for Jamie and I didn't. I wasn't mean k. I thought everybody was in Nike. We talked about Ryan Fitzpatrick all week. Well said that he would start this game in my opinion, and then there's a buy week and then they would decide if if they win than Fitzpatrick continues, I'm guessing I don't think he's gonna lose his job and less. She doesn't play. Well. What about the bears to now that NFC north, you have any? I like the bears. I think they're playoff-caliber team. All for those teams could sneak in there. Maybe. I don't know after what happened in Minnesota. Here the apple in our quarterback draft. We did our go. Did Mitch Trubisky go before Matt Stafford, I believe so Mitch. Trubisky was selected before breeze luck, Matt Ryan, and Matt Stafford. Why didn't take him? I know just I'm not naming names. Wasn't this the quarterback whisper in here. Fritzy I did take Mitchell, Mitchell, Trubisky, Mitchell. I think he's got some big years ahead, no big years in front of them right now or behind bears, took them over Mahomes just like a month ago and Watson. What happened to our love affair for Shawn Watson that ended quickly didn't. That was a quick cooling off period starts out well, last year, then he gets injured. Then this year they haven't won a game all of a sudden we're onto the next quarterback, but also keep keep in mind with Trent Dilfer set in the first hour. There are so many talented, quarterbacks, young quarterbacks, who are they're going into college already into college, and there's only so many starting spots in the NFL. I wonder about the long jeopardy of certain quarterbacks now because you're gonna have a better version. It feels like every couple of years and you might not want to sign up long-term with with some of these quarterback do have anymore meet Friday songs scene. Yeah, we do. And actually one of them will here a play. There's an original that play second. Okay. But here we go. You might recognize this. You gotta get. Gotta to get. Everybody's full. And. Barbecue. It's Friday of the DP show Larvik bourbon. Bar berbick. Friday on the Friday. Gotta get down on Friday. Everybody's looking forward to the weekend. We can Kirk d cousins, what seven years ago, a longtime. I think that's the last time we had him on the show. We always get them when they're in college, and they're always, you know, excited to come on. And then all of a sudden they become NFL quarterbacks. Can we get Kirk cousins again, one of these days for right. It's like a Chrissy Teagan kind of thing. They stuck into little too big, forgot where they came and we build them up and they just let them go, let them go fly away. That was a fella named Joel in Washington. It feels like he was mocking channeling to it as there was. He sampling to it as their that song felt like that. And that's what I took. That's a Tuesday. I think that might be a little hard core for two days. It's a little too heavy metal for today's. That's like motor Motorhead compared to. Tells like today's big. You can't. With Eddie bitty waist and around thing in your face, you get sprung out. If he did that on American idol, I think he would have gotten through. He would had legendary status, and that's why I told him because he did what he do Ed Sheeran and I went, don't do it sure. Pastries like, hey saints or whatever it is. And I said to him, if you do that song with jaylo there. Cemented yourself, you'll be, you'll be forever remembered on American idol. If you knew you're going down in flames anyway, then you should have done that. Yes, we've actually had a huge call shimmering back this, which was just an instant classic king in smoky. Sauce in me per few. I can't wait to take another by the tasters on and on and on and on. On working hard to get my fill. I can taste sweet, meet, still don't want pasta. Don't won't rise. Me just one more time. Don't stunt meeting. One seed right there. That's a one seed. I love it crushed well done. It's like, are we have Kathy in Florida here? One last one. It's a magic me Friday. A sausage, pork or beef. It's not good at three who they. Who sausage off the grew, manic Monday. Great. So you know, part of the one of the things are running into that when we pull the song, sometimes people don't know what the song is like, oh, there's unoriginal. Yeah, I think I think there's a mix up with the cheap trick onto just another manic Monday. Just another meet Friday fritzy. What did you learn on the program?

Starting 9 Episode 154 - Bob Uecker

"Welcome back to starting nine. Oh aw episode. One fifty four very excited for this episode for a multitude of reasons We get some meaty topics in this particular episode but also also we have an interview with a living legend. Mr Bob Euchre so let me just preface this by saying this he doesn't do very many of these So I think not. Yeah not just like people when we went to Milwaukee. People were fascinated that he was sitting down. And doing this So I I can't remember if I told this story before on the podcast or not but We were in Milwaukee Gi. We had done interviews with you know Yelich Moose Hater some of which you've heard POMERANZ But then Bob Euchre. That was not won a dream interview for sure. Not One that I was expecting to leave Milwaukee with so I I see him in the dugout. And I'm just like Awestruck by this man and Yeli introduces me. He's like hey I want you to meet my friend jared as. Hey what's going on Mr Euchre very nice to meet it you And I thought that that was going to be. And that was that would have been fine with me So we're Kinda like we're we're sitting around and we have all these interviews lined up but we It's a lot of like sit and wait. Which is same thing that we do on the spikes up tour It's a lot of surrounding sitting around and waiting for guys to become available while I was sitting around and waiting for whoever it was on the brewers to do an interview Mr Euchre is still just bopping around the dugout. Talking to whoever catching up with everybody and I'm just like all right. I'm going to go up to him. I'm just GONNA I'm just GonNa ask what's the worst that can have already set up. Everything is already set up in the Doug. Because we're waiting on other guys So I go up to him like Mr Euchre Do you are you familiar with podcasts. And he's like no like As well do you WANNA WANNA beyond one news like yeah I was like well. When can you do it right now? I great so he just walks down the dugouts we we walk over to our setup Gamer. Yeah just ready to roll So yeah that interview with Bob Euchre is coming up later. Someone from the grounds crew. He's essentially the Andy Wong of the baseball world. Like you're not getting the sit down with him right you're not happen so Someone from the grounds crew tweeted me today. Today they're like. Hey what is that Bob. EUCHRE coming out and I was like wait a second. I totally forgot that we didn't even put that out. I was super excited about it when I tweeted. The pictures. Brewers twitter went nuts baseball ball. Twitter went nuts And then also it's wrestlemainia season the royal rumble. Was this past Sunday. So we got to talk and because he is You know he's a staple all in pro wrestling Lower as well in addition to being a baseball legend so we talked a little bit about that. We talked a little bit about his legacy and baseball. One of my favorite interviews. Ever ask him or me gene. I mean I liked meaning jeans interactions with Hulk Hogan because it they just play play off each other so great for Bob euchre being wrestlemainia. I mean that's that's just a memory that wrestling fans will treasure forever. Like whether you saw it live or whether you went back I can watch it like I. I mean I wasn't. I wasn't like a wrestling fan back then but I mean Bob Euchre nine even before that it was Wrestlemania like four. Yeah so he's a he's he's definitely in the in the Upper Pantheon of starring non guests But some news. Who's that came out today recording on Monday night? I'm in Miami for the Super Bowl. I don't know why I'm here. You know Cynthia exits just makes total makes total sense. I mean in fairness we did two hours of radio today. We didn't talk about football whatsoever so I guess that fits Miami for for Barstool radio. We're here today to to reports came out one of which next year Major League Baseball umpires whenever there's a play that's being challenged Simple is very simple and I don't know why they didn't do this sooner. But umpires will now be miked up and be able to announce to the crowd. What the fuck is is happening? which honestly? I'm glad that they waited a little bit because you welcome. I'm glad I'm glad glad they waited. Because I think it added another layer a layer of excellence to the To Ellie commentating tasting the Yankees Astros game. Three the when whenever there was something going on the field if you weren't watching it knowing what's going on I mean if you've got an actual explanation that defeats the purpose. But now we have actual explanations and those were the greatest moments of that live broadcast was someone who has no clue what's going on whatsoever on the field if they could would've been communicated with if they could have just been given just a little bit of insight that entire the entire novelty of that nights electric just goes completely out the window. It's done and over. It's not anywhere near what it was translation. You have people that have paid paid quite a bit of money to bring themselves their families friends would ever to the ball game. And if they're just the casual fan and there's a break can the action for whatever reason right it's a check swing or who who knows who knows what like what could get changed in. What could become reviewable Blah Blah Blah Woah? Like who who who knows but the idea that anything that has been questioned is going to be explained so that people have an idea because maybe you were and let's be honest. Maybe you were on your phone. Maybe you were in line and you didn't see on the TV what had happened. And now you're like kind of seeing replays or whatever and you're like wait what what and then you can finally hear the explanation. That's great especially for people at home too who are watching in with younger fans trying to teach and explain the game. Well we've always felt like that the umpires are doing their best work. If you don't know who they are you're right and they'll tell you that we don't want to be a part of it any more than you don't want us to be a part of it. We want to get in there and do our job and be done with it. Well there's there's some characters out there there's security. I just want people to understand this eight Joe Hernandez is going to have a biker. Phone folks Is going to have to control the strike zone. which is you know? We'll call that a work in progress. I guess to. He's going to have to remember to turn off the microphone and as somebody who does live television I know how important that is really important. A really important and like just just imagine. And that's that's that's really look. Let's let's start with the positives right. It's great that the fans could be educated not only in house but also at home and it helps the stewards of the game. The folks were passing this game on to other people. It helps them as well because not everybody played major league. Baseball -ASEBALL met everybody played D.. One baseball never you get it. So here's an opportunity to explain the game from folks that frankly they would love to hear the explanation from because these are the folks that are policing the game there and forcing the rules so now when things are being questioned you have literally the horse on the bucket. Feel that you want giving it to you right there. My my first reaction into this news was that it is. It has been Joe West Dream hot mic in front of thirty thousand people for his entire life and now baby. He's got it. I may bust a concert. We know he's capable first of all. I don't sleep on the cowboys record. Sales don't sleep on the cowboys was downloads. You know but but really look. Could you imagine like like what are we got. What are we going to set the over under two and a half weeks three three remains under song no not before he breaks it to suck at you? Could you imagine a Joe West in the seventy stretch like collaborating with the home team where he and his crew just go out to second base and just let it eat. Oh Yeah I got on the people need. Oh it's I mean it's going to happen. Do we got your west singing the national anthem before. He's before he's off into. I don't even want the national. I want an original they. I feel like you know what they should to do. is like on players weekend. It's like the players. They get to wear their custom spikes they get to wear the nickname jerseys and all this. Why not let Joe West just sing? Take take me out to the ball game but you know what I want Joe West Watch. Os like wearing a like a metal cowboy hat like once you you know. It's it's field. Proof that can sustain the the cowboy hat cowboy helmet exactly. Could you imagine embiid Dover and in apparel hot weather astles bliss chaps with Joe just ringing your ass up literally Oh cowboys asked us in the Jackpot. And that's exactly exactly what I think. Very will what has has has really kind of postponed or delayed this is there is a lot of interaction action. That goes on at home plate leading up to home plate umpire with the ballboys slash girls with you know the the everybody with with field maintenance crew like everybody and just the opportunity again for Angel Hernandez it doesn't just using him as an example because anybody Joe West anybody is as susceptible to it to leave that button on earth for whatever reason can that be blasted over the PA on wanted like who knows like you mean to tell me that for like I guess what's GonNa Aptitudes for the first time in America people are going to people are going to find out that all I got you. You need to tell me that the umpire the catcher and the hitter were all talking about somebody in the stands. You mean on all my what. That's a fair thing that happened. It's never no one's going to let you know. Maybe maybe someone's going to be hacking into those mics to just get them hot all the time. I don't know well look. That's that's where I've talked about technology going like I know. Oh man thing about the automatic stripes on Automated Strike Zone. You beat to tell tell me that people were going the links going to to run you know closed circuit television systems in their stadiums. That people aren't going to be trying to hack hacking into a mainframe in and and like trying to figure out how to control or indicate strike when it's just us off like say they know those margins down to the thousandth whatever millimeter and maybe they can hack into it and give that program just a little love when when their guys out on the mound. I don't know I have no idea but I've always thought about that like so the more you automate shit the more you're opening up to you know. I guess what I would call the dark web approach coach. Yeah that's why I never wanNA SEE ROBOT UPS like I. I've said this before I'm sticking with my take I enjoy the masochism Asoka some of the human element. I enjoy UMPIRES getting calls wrong and that illicit like having an emotional response that I can. I can project on the internet or on video or if I'm just at the at the game as a fan just watching it in the stands like I like getting pissed off about bad calls it's It's just a thing of mine but the other thing that they're talking about speaking of Eliciting emotional responses the D. H.. Coming to to the National League reportedly in Twenty Twenty One COUPLA. Some Nash League fans are upset with this. I'm sure we all have maybe similar but perhaps differing opinions on this. I think that with the D. H.. And there was some push back to this but there were some National League Fan. When I first started a a Barstool I remember one of the first blogs I wrote was about the age of the National League and the pushback was immense from nationally fans? I feel like if you're a national league fan you hate the D. H.. Until you get a good one like you mean to tell me you'd rather have Jacob degrom at the plate then Nelson in crews like you're a fucking liar like oh well the strategy and it's like it doesn't make the game like less strategical than to have you know if you have A. Ah My point. Was that clean out his work but the people combating the idea of the your simple-minded baseball fan because you need need high scoring games to enjoy them that's not true. I would rather see a one. Nothing pitchers duel. Where an ace is carving up a Nelson Cruz type verses a pitcher? That just doesn't want to be at home plate. Just be honest and and this is what I would. This is what you hit every national league fan or nationally diehard or even baseball purist with which I've said many times I consider myself a purist because I like like to be a ballplayer is to be able to get on the mound and throw strikes and get outs get into batter's box and handled about to a certain extent like that's being a ballplayer ballplayer right. Well the game of baseball doesn't lend itself to that ballplayer. Those guys are anomalies. We call those guys Babe Ruth and Shohei Tony Right. And that's that's how that goes so everybody else quite literally everybody else is just you know fanfare. It's just Chinese stuff to watch mad bomb. Lean into one because you know out of the pool of Regular guys out of the pool of pitchers he's probably one of the guys you'd love to see hitting Homerun Derby but now you're getting into like we got a filter this Guy Outta Outta here. Well let me ask you this nationally vans. Here's what you hit him with jared. Were you really excited where you're really excited when the game was on the line and you didn't have degrom at the dish laying down a bunch you had any buddy else but degrom ROMM right. Yeah you were you were you you were telling yourself man you know what like secretly thank God right here. We've got a an and that right there here is all you need to realize. It's not about your love for the game changing. That's not what's happening. It's understanding that this game and has gone in such a direction and frankly fairly quickly with You know with everything. It's becoming involved the way that we're assessing these players and I'm serious. Mandalay WanNa see you don't want to talk about the brewers who lost who lost pitchers because they're diagnosed databases in order to mean like. Why are they on the base and and that's because they're pinch running for guys? Look I understand pitchers get used stuff like that but you bring in like you just jared. There's just a different brand into baseball and nobody wants to watch. Nobody wants to watch that small ball game anymore. As much as you don't want to admit it or as much as I hate to think about baseball you it just killing off the bunt and kill it. Because I'm a huge fan of putting pressure on the other team. I'm a huge fan of that but along in that vein. I'm I'm not doing much to put pressure on you if you've got an out here an nine hole right that and I think you you know if they do switch over to having the D. H.. In the National League than you know twenty five years from now baseball fans will be looking back. You know these young kids. Will we look back beyond like wait a second. You mean to tell me that you had to leagues playing by two completely different sets of rules to compete for the same championship championship. Like in what other sport does that happen right. Say that. Just say that to yourself. That's seriously like thinking about Canadian football or I don't know about Canadian. WanNa miss speed or Because I don't know if that's true but in arena football like you can have your receiver not only in motion. But moving. Towards the Line of scrimmage right you imagine allowing dudes in the NFL but like only in the AFC to be able to do that. Like all their receivers get to do that. And then based on the record like Like I don't know how they would do it in football because it's one game not a series but like for one half your receivers can actually move towards the line of scrimmage so you've got three wide two of these mother. fuckers are already at four four top speed bowl and you're just not used to defending that as just like like the extra point is just like a different amount of yards back from the goalpost in the AFC compared to the NFC. Like it's crazy. Like like I I don't know I. I'm an American League Fan. Obviously Grew up loving edgar grew Martinez got to witness David Ortiz entire career with the red sox. big fan of Nelson Cruz. So it's yeah I mean like not every team is going I have a Stud D. H.. That's first and foremost like if you add the D. H.. The National League. That doesn't mean that every team is going to go out there and immediately implement of forty home run hitter In the middle of their order. Who doesn't have to play defense? That's just not the case. Some teams will use that d. h. spot to rotate guys in and out To to give guys a day off where From from being the field. Maybe you just put a Guy In Your da spot teams will utilize it that way. That's fine but at the end of the day you You don't WanNa have like when people talk about the strategy what is the strategy to strategy is like sixth-inning in a in a one run game and you have pitcher coming up and there's a runner on second it's like all right. Well my starter. Could maybe give me another inning plus but I you know this is a tight ballgame we we descend up a pinch hitter right now. And now you're getting your starters. outing short. Because you gotta you gotTa get this running and why are you calling the pin up there. Because you don't WanNa just get away an out right because you're saying I don't want to just want this guy over or I don't think that the bunt is going to be for whatever reason you're just not into sacrificing that out for that spot in the batting order and it specifically because of the individual that is batting that's it it's not because of the number number indicating order it is just about who is batting right and I'm not. I'm not discounting National League fans being like well. I kinda liked that I liked the strategy. I like the fact that you you have to make decisions like that. And do they work out. Do you stick with the pitcher. Like we've seen that before too where it's like. We're going to stick with our star because we value like we think we think like when the top of the order comes back up in the seventh eighth or whatever that we can push across a run inside his ball game and we. We still want to have our horse in the game for the seventh inning. Maybe later like. That's the decision that you have to make. That's the strategy that's intriguing to some fans but from a logical standpoint. You would rather have a major league hitter at the plate not a guy that just is gonNa fuck in either drop down Bonner Punch out in in three pitches again. The idea of a pitcher being a viable option within a lineup like a guy with a baton his hand and for me is really cool because it takes me back to the days when abner was throwing the throwing the all rawhide around right like the game was everybody's involved and like could you imagine rolling into town where all five guys in that rotation Asian like you're looking at a three-game set four game set and this club for whatever reason has been able to accumulate some dudes who are lights out on the mound and can also also dropped Dick at the plate. That is a serious problem. Like if you could look like seriously if everybody had to play the game where their pitchers did hit and we didn't even know about the D. H.. Think about what a precious commodity a Madison Bumgarner or is that green tea type would be right. Guys that are threats at the plate and not just in easy out guys that have to be pitched to to an extent. You'd be you'd be having your eyeballs on those guys there'd be a department in your brain trust in your think-tank geared towards those dudes Gimme the top ten two ways in the nation. You'd need those guys that's just what would happen. And I think you've made this point before to Dallas where you're like put the D. H.. In the National League and see how many managers sent a pitcher to the play. Like you think you know mass and Bumgarner Zach Cranky guys like that like they can swing and a little bit go back to the Mike Hampton days days shirt. The the you know they'll pop. Two three home runs a year. How many managers if given the opportunity to use someone else in their line-up are still putting their pitcher? In the lineup. Dontrelle Willis Shoutout autotrain starring nine grounds crew member How many of these managers are still using those pitchers in their line-up none of them like is you're still talking about like a a to ten hitter with a fucking six seventy six? Oh P S best case scenario and when they're sexy when it sexy to roll the train up when it sexy to all give me the the Detroit when it sexy is win that day starter. Just got his ass kit and he's already out of the game and we're like we're not gonNA burn a position player for this a B. So train go fucking dope bridge all right. Do you gotTa do days fucking Detroit and was batting seventh Comeback Star Days just a little bit just absolute but that's again it's the acceptance of a complete shift in the rules of the game because when you change the rules of the game obviously you changed strategy of the game and you change Rosser construction and there's a lot that goes John and that's what a lot of traditionalist are you know I don't know if it's on the fence or they just don't want it but it does come down to talking them into like the the advantages of utilizing somebody who hits for a living as opposed to a pitcher. That's not what this is about. This is about them. Just saying them being traditionalist saying the I get it but I don't fucking WanNa watch another good hitter hit. I like the fact that our pitcher can actually do x Y and Z with the bat and their pitcher. Can't I liked that. That's why I like this club. That's why I like this team. That's why you know what that's where the traditionalist are coming from in two thousand seven his last year with the Marlins d train hit a two eighty six with an eight fifty six opie s in eighty plate appearances chew of The in two thousand eleven with the reds his last year in the Big Leagues D train in thirty four plate appearances hit three eighty. He's seven with a ten thirty two of Yes yes he and all love all looked train right love to drain. You mean to tell me that you don't want somebody else up there. That's getting paid to do that. And you know I'd rather have the train up there but he's the only Guy Hi is the only guy who is paid to pitch. That would want up there. The point is that's what makes guys like D train and guys like mad bum so a special but met like Madam. He's he's just not somebody that you would d. h. prior to like like Detroit could very well have been a Otani tawny type like given the opportunity. You think Yeah you know what I mean. And that's that's the That's the difference between Detroit and Detroit's talking about a week with Detroit was like it could roll the bucket. Poll folks like this is a guy who can swing the bat and that that was what again. That's the difference is Otani could swing the bat. You D train. Three hundred fifty played appearances like he's a year. Whatever four plate appearances what's his career average to To forty four around there J.. Hey Interested to get your thoughts on the coming to the National League. I'm not convinced that it eliminates strategy and I just that kind of rings untrue to me because I still feel like there's going to to be Platoon strategy. There's going to be. There's going to be Adjustments based on pitching change. I just like to me I get it like I'm not one of those people that needs Increased offense or increased Game length either. I'm also not even convinced that this is going to significantly increase game length or anything like that. I think it's going to increase the overall quality of the product And there are things that we can continue to improve on baseball. But I just don't this to me is is GONNA if feels a lot like home plate collisions. It feels a lot like pitch outs or four pitches for the automatic or automatic walk. People are like. Oh we're never we're going to get this one thing that happened. One Time In thirty thousand Baseball Games We're never going to get that okay. Maybe we won't get that but I think we're going to see a higher quality of baseball on a game to game and inundating basis. Well Yeah and those things that you're talking about like the four pitch you know like I don't miss those. Do you ever think about that anymore. Yeah I do I guess you do because you played the sport but like I do. Yeah I do I do all the time because I know that there is a because I trust because I play it from a off. Fuck Manny I experience but from a viewing experience I would you can never convince me that that that is missing from the game viewing experience. I know that's not what you're saying but not at all not at all and I'm saying that like those little nuances in the game. The little things things right. Those are things that were part of the game. I don't want to call them. Wards maybe growths right without them so to me like there. This is a this is like the stack. And we're going to know and understand we're not gonNA just start making the pitchers in the. Al Hit that's not going to be a thing think so the next thing coming obviously is the D. H.. And here's what I think. People often like conflict when they're talking about why they don't like the in the National League. What I'm interested in pursuing and I think all three of us on this podcast? Dr Is a return to the game. Where there are more balls is in play where there are more fielding opportunities where there is more base running involved in the game? I think we're all in on that right because as MLB historian and John Thorn would point out. The game is called baseball right. It's not called that ball. The purpose of the game in the eighteen hundreds was to advance AH bases and keep people moving right so whatever that's the eighteen hundreds were not there anymore but I think that's the core essence of baseball. That's not what's it's going to be missing when you remove the pitcher from batting you're just removing weak offensive and viewing experiences from the game and what would be argued from the traditionalist standpoint. Is You know what. So you're gonNa tell me you're going to pay a guy go up there and try to do exactly what I'm not really into. which is just hit it as hard as far as possible and this is a dude who given six hundred at bats can go up there two hundred plus times times and swing and miss it? I would rather pay to watch that guy down. Force the guy at third to come in either barehanded. What do you make an accurate? Well injuries with marketing better. So that's that's it's the mistake. Is that the the pitchers putting the theory of pitchers putting the ball in play and that being preferable over a a DHCP HD slashes to thirty three fifty four ninety or whatever. The ball is in play that often. He's drawing lots of walks. Lots extra-base hits Shit like that. Whatever I get that? That's not the most appealing thing. It's a fucking lie that these pitchers are putting the ball in play and giving fielders legitimate opportunities more often half the time. It's some Shit Shit asks bunt your should ask but guess what has to be fielded and guess what that counts and just what happened that you start any other half the time. Sort of the take what happens. So it's like it's like Swinging swamp strike three. Oh that was fun. He's look like he was so interested in swing at the pitch and not interested in getting back to the Dugout is fastest fucking possible. So that he could focus on those pitches that he was gonNA throw throw next inning that he was gonNA take forty five fucking seconds to throw each and every one because each one needs to be perfectly map out and placed gives us fuck out of here with this shit. I'm you're telling me that those outs don't count they. They'll I'm telling you that. The pitchers are not actually putting the ball in play and providing dynamic fielding opportunities that we're all interested in those those weak bonds that barely barely squeaked past. Home Plate are not interesting baseball when it's the pitcher running and he gets fucking thirty percent down the line and is gunned out by a mile. That's interesting I think you're missing. The point is in these people's minds the idea and I can understand fully the idea that I'm what's happening here is my team. Just successfully forced that team to have to pick it up successfully throw it successfully and catch it successfully. All with the idea that we're executing this play with a serious intention to take the lead put pressure on the opposing team. That's where the traditionalist is coming from. So because it wasn't a bare Marehan play underhand while the well Aaron how to lays out and you're like Oh shit and it was a terrible throw but a backhand scoop on the backside to put a bow on it because because that didn't happen and you're not excited about it doesn't take away from the people who just think you know. What if I've got guys that put pressure on the other team? I like those guys as I liked. It's not it's not real pressure. Look at the triple slap lineup of pitchers universally in baseball right now. There's no way you can convince anybody who's paying hang any attention to the game that the people who hit a cumulative line like that are more likely to give you interesting baseball results than the cumulative line of what will eventually be D- The ages yes it may include strikeouts. It's also going to include line drives ground balls fly balls home runs doubles triples and singles. And you know what the pitchers don't Provide any of those things except for the strikeouts. Except well I I. You're I would agree. In terms of which product like which body work is going to look a better. The body of work from the pitchers the body of work from the D. H. is like the productivity. We really don't even need to have that conversation do we. The I know again again from the fan respective is they would really like to see. It's basically like walking up to to a I don't know like like walking up to a gun fight and go and look what I got. Oh yeah look what I got. Okay well you know what I can keep backing up. Why because my guns a lot bigger shoots a lot farther farther than yours does? And that's kind of like walking in there with a rotation of guys who can handle the bat that's where that's voting cyst. That's where the purest or coming from and what I would say it's is. It's been a long time since having five guys right could actually make an impact act like the right and I understand where you're coming from one prepared rasping for a present that does not currently exist. Not Available I would agree agree and they are yes. You are reaching in the past and I'm getting speaking of somebody who had made the adjustment from you know what let the pitchers be ballplayers. It's it should be a badge badge of honor it should blah blah blah. You know what no not when we're watching guys book and blow their Achilles out in the batter's box. I don't WanNa see that right. Don't WanNa see that as we're watching Adam wainwright blow is bucking Achilles out. Because he's bunting come I'll cherish Bartolo some run and I'll never I forget and I'll never think about the pitcher batting again. It's going to be great. I can hold those two thoughts in my head at the same time. Is there another. Is there the other occupation in pro sports where one single athlete is loved and hated as much like as a starting pitcher. Like we love of you on the mound. Get the fuck Outta my face when it comes to your turn at the plate. Wonder why I guess that's kind of. I don't know that it translate translates necessarily to any other sport quarterback not in the game for any reason rewrite Kyri on offense but not on defense tr- trae young tissue paper on defense all right. Well that was. That was a hearty any discussion. But I but I got to yell a little bit there at the end thereby feels good. Feels like they got their got to say their piece Some news notes. We gotta hit on. This actually says the reds agree to a deal with Nicholas Cast Janos The Reds Ed's agreed with deal with Nick Casts Janos who In addition to signing this four year sixty four million dollar deal is like hey by the way I'm nick again When I you got the chance to talk to him he came in the old old office? And what's the deal with. You Know Your Nicholas but you are nick. Nick like what's the deal and he was like well like when I go to like the Ballpark's like my family's there like my mom naming Nicholas and she wants to see Nicholas like up on like the video video board and I was like all right so you don't mind if I call you nick. My Name's Nick. I call me nick like okay so now. He's going back to nick. So he's Nick Cassiano once again as he had that conversation with mom I would I would. That's something that we're GonNa have to follow up on spring We're GONNA HAVE TO WE'RE GONNA have to get Nick Casinos back on starting nine. That was That was a fascinating conversation that we had He was with Shane Green at the time they were the Tigers I would like to. I would like to talk talk to Nick Casinos one on one because this is I didn't realize at the time when we were talking to him. You could tell he was an interesting cat. Yeah and then the cubs version of Nick. Cassiano came to light which is a completely different side of Cassiano that I don't think any one of us has ever we're seeing before So interesting guy gets a four year deal. Sixty four million Scott Boris works in. Not One but two opt outs in the final. Two years of the deal The reds first of all we start with the reds the reds are not sitting idly by there like a what You know we. We have some success that we want to build on from last year. And we don't just WanNa hang our hats on. Hey look look at what we did in twenty nineteen that plus some more in two thousand twenty. They have done work in the off season. You add Moose on a four year six rural ooh piece you add Shogo Yama for a three year. Twenty one mill piece. You go and get your. You'll get Wade Miley to your fifteen mill. Peace Right. I mean I mean they were not fucking around. They were like you know what we're looking at this division right now and we think we've got a shot. We're not we're just. We're not going to be doormat in it. That's definitely not going to happen. We we like them ws and I mean they went and now you add cast. I mean come on. Look at look at the outfield outfield. What were you gonNA put some of these guys? There's gotta be some moves made here. That's got to happen when you talk. Yeah you're talking about a team that has done. Allot this off season. And you'd have to imagine that they're not done they can't be done. I mean they essentially have three people competing for for one outfield starting outfield slot. Now right right because you've committed a spot to Castanos you've committed a spot unless he totally falls on his face to Yama mostly. Because he is now required defensively you need him in center field right. And so it's it's winker it's it's Aquino and its sell right competing for another one point. Eight block. Petrello brought up a good point. Mike Petrello brought up a good the point today that those three people who are competing for that spot have never put together a full productive healthy major league season so we saw Aquino was exciting. Last year sells really highly rated prospect. winker has been kind of hit or miss but I don't think it's the worst thing in the world and this is his point not mine but I I agree agree with it. I don't think it's the worst thing in the world to have some depth there and to have those things kind of sort themselves out. Let No. It's it's it's it's great when these young guys can sort of like like he saying shake aac themselves. Out One establishes themselves clearly above the others. You you get a you get to survey you know maybe some holes look on getaway a day. Maybe you've got two out of these three guys that are in the lineup against a similar type arm that you're looking to answer questions against like there's there's a lot of different ways they can play this and I also believe that if they feel like it's still a time where they're competing for the job that shouldn't necessarily summarily mean any one of them are just hands off in a potential trade that might push them in a direction where they feel really comfortable in their return. What do you think about that? Yeah I I think that's true. I also think that it's a little weird. How the team was put together? Well it's kind of been like not bad like it's not a criticism because I think ultimately like we're all onboard that the reds what they've done is good right. We weren't teams that are trying to win in the present. I just find like the targets that they went after to be. I think it's a little bit of a Clunky Kief it overall roster wise. I think casino's out there and have exactly he was still out there and I think Moose was a again a good player I think he and I think we said this on the pod. He was a little bit of an imperfect fit for this team in a couple of ways. But they're both good players. They both make the team better so the pitchers that they've added. But it just feels like wouldn't use Monte Grande doll have made a lot of sense here for a similar amount of money like Wall Street construction-wise I think Grondahl though is just I mean douse the opening video game right like you can't just click. I'M GONNA pay this guy the most Miami and he's going to come here and nobody can negotiate but like how how serious guys think the reds are like as far as central contention kick this around on with the white sox very seriously how. How serious do you guys think? The reds are like a division winner but like a team to be reckoned with like you you could we be talking wildcard. Maybe when we're when we're in like mid to late August and they show the graphic for like who's in the hunt for the for the wild card in the National League I think you'll see the Cincinnati reds there. Are they whole man so you got him so let's just or their. There are eighty five eighty eighty five to like eighty eight wins. Because we're talking about that's ten. That's like a ten fifteen win increase. Somebody ballgames it. When last year? Seventy seventy five West Sarah Miss. I'm looking at up. But seventy five sounds right and I I could see them running. I need seventy seventy five. Seventy five eighty seven so to win eighty five games. They would need to improve ten games on paper. I don't think that's crazy. I mean they get our for a full season in power was probably a net negative for them last year so you you'd presumably get a better version of him. Wade Miley will add a winner to you would think I think the two the two primary offense. I don't know what Akiyama is gonna be so I don't I'm not really gonNA pretend to know but huge. Yeah but Mustafa Kissing Listen Castanos the two of them have to be worth somewhere between four and six winds combined right on a conservatively So then you're looking at your already at seven or eight wins and that's not really even factoring in anything that bowers giving I think they're I think they're the best team in the division but I do think they're right there. Yeah and I mean the the only way that they're only route to the playoffs is to win that division in my yet there's no chance there. There's there's just no chance they snuff out a wildcard spot. I don't I don't think that's if you don't think the central has any chance to produce a wildcard spot Yeah because I I. I think one's probably coming out of the East right absolutely wants coming out of the east. I comfortable I mean we'll get to the diamondbacks move today. which definitely made them better? But I don't know that I'm super convinced on the padres of the diamondbacks. That's that's why I said because that's why said they would have to win win their division because if they're not winning their division. I don't know that I mean I. I don't know I don't. I don't know that they're in a position to overtake Milwaukee Maybe not now what about the pirates Dallas feel more so hosanna no. No No. No no no. We're not skipping past that starling Martin Bay to the diamondbacks leaving the pirate ship. This must be a tough ICU. Wearing a is that a yellow and black hat No it's not definitely I mean that would that would suggest that both Jay and I are colorblind. Well it's not a yellow in blackout. So if that's the case you are colorblind ords delighting in my office here but it is is actually a yellow hat Does it looks like some black on there though like a lot of it with the y'all let's Blue Blue Dallas so as the resident pirates representative. How do you feel about them getting getting a payroll? You're fifty mil look. I don't know I don't know when I became. Actually you build on them last year. You actually got off at at the end of two thousand nine hundred seriously do not suit. They achieved what they're looking to achieve right. They still had to eat some of that right. They think the one and a half million I mean come on what are they look. They got what they're looking for in terms of the book in a a first rounder back for whatever the the righty Brennan Malone they also got themselves international lending money yeah loss leader Euro. We've got two hundred and fifty K.. In the international signing pool as well I think that is probably one of the bigger net- positives there I don't know what you want me to say from pirates perspective. You've done an admirable job bob except for it's kind of like It's kind of like some other clubs out there you know it's kind of like you're gonNA start a talk graphs since two thousand thirteen and company back-to-back. Two thousand twenty years. Yeah he's generally underrated. I think the PD stuff did not help that. But generally underrated he's outperformed the contract that he's been on He's been at worst worth at least three wins above replacement in six of the last seven in seasons. He's a remarkably consistent player Offensively and defensively. I think you pretty much know what you're getting And as I noted on twitter today the pirates opening day payroll all is now right around the point. It wasn't two thousand six so that's good. That was fourteen years ago. Nothing games avenues have changed since then and look for the to. This also gives them. This gives them now four dudes. Who are knocking on the door if not already through that doorway? Yeah of thirty plus homers Christian Walker Kettle Marseille. Starling Martin Eduardo Escobar. It's four dudes. Who can poppy thirty? Yeah yeah no I I like the deal for the d-backs I I am kind of disappointed though. Because if they if they were on the market Having Ya Aseel puig and Madame on the same team would have been an unbelievable beautiful thing but that apparently is not going to be taking place. They missed a huge huge marketing opportunity. Huge huge huge. I'm also excited to see where PUIG ends up. Just for the simple fact that like I just I need that rivalry to continue forever. Is Jake lamb the odd man out here the d backs in terms of the starting lineup. Hundred One Hundred Times Eduardo. Escobar going best. That would seem to leave jake lamb as the regular her. WHO's not regular anymore fair not? It's not unfair. It's not unfair. I mean they paid Kole Calhoun. They paid David Peralta this off season. They've they've sort of flashes. Yeah they've the writings on the wall. That's Kinda I. I don't know I won't say fun. But starting march as a good player they just added probably the second best player I think he had a career year in slugging percentage and his last year his wins above replacement is like all over the fucking place though Martin. Yeah no I'd the three plus in six of the last seven seasons. Yeah three plus. But it's like all right here. We go five point. Two four point seven five point the one point seven point nine. Yes but you guys. Are you guys looking at explained baseball reference and I was looking at fan graphs but I still think even if you look at baseball reference I still think. Generally you're looking at a pretty consistent player with the exception of the two thousand seventeen year. That'll just forever Piss me off that you could be just just numbers off based on whichever one you're referencing whether it's pretty consistent it's pretty consistent it's okay We all strive constantly striving for something closer to Perfection Dallas in life rather than Sir Marcello Zona to the braves urine declined the qualifying offer for just a shade under this yeah and gets eighteen million on a one year deal with the new team thoughts. I I didn't really I don't I don't understand the and why not was. There's just no money there for him. Yeah yeah there's just no interest I mean I guess I do understand understand but no I don't I don't really understand why Mike Mushtaq is for example gets paid Marcella mantras. He's GonNa play a defensive position that they they need they need so you don't just plop somebody up in the Middle Infield. That's why like you can't hide somebody in the Middle Infield so suppose the reds are absolutely banking on Moose being a more than serviceable defender and Marcelo Zunino. Like we see what kind of adventure that can be at times defensively so one of my favorite favorite highlights of the entire season. What to call it zoo? It's a zoo. We're doing but I was going to say. Is it fair to call him. One of the most I difficult players in terms of describing. How good he is? How good is I? Don't have any idea. Well let me put that in perspective for J. When you think of the last four years sixteen seventeen eighteen nineteen right. What those lineups look like that he was on you? Look at the production Shen and it's kind of been peak ish in valley peak ish and values there's been some ups and downs in two thousand sixteen two thousand seventeen. We're talking about hitting a lineup lineup. That had the likes of JT. Realm you till the Games best offensive Catcher Dee Gordon at the time who was setting tables martine pro hitting over three hundred Yeli as well stanton those those kind of power threats are just bored. The Big Bopper from the left side. That's the kind of lineup. That Marcelo's Oona found himself smack DAB in the middle of so RBI VI opportunities. Were there the idea that he was getting pitches to hit so fuckers behind him were not being like all of that was very real and in those years he performed and then experienced a drop off two thousand sixteen seven Seventy-three Twenty-three Jack Seventy six. RBI's two thousand seventeen again kind of that same lineup from two thousand sixteen in Miami Nine Twenty four ups thirty-seven Jack. One Hundred Twenty four stakes folks so part of that. PK Valley's performance right and number two thousand seventeen. He hit forth a lot in that lineup. So he was a he was the vein. You know what I'm saying. He was the main vein sort of but only. Because you had to deal with Yellow Jen Stanton and some of these other guys in that same lineup. Two dollars he was just like you also have to consider. Yelich wasn't Yelich yet. Like he was very good senator. He wasn't the MVP like the the the superstar that he is is now like that was the year that stand hit fifty nine and then if you look at it I mean like if it worked for Stanton popping off fifty nine homers and seventeen the year that Marcello Zona Zone A had that year was like in the conversation for MVP. I'm pretty sure he's still finish top ten that year and I mean who saw in just the thing for Yali. The baseball's hadn't come yet right. Because we've seen look folks. You saw the video from the all-star from from charity softball game. There's some are saying that that my pop pop like if you were to shade out the hitter and just watch the swing. Be Hard pressed to tell the I'm I'm just they. They did after. Move the fences in for you you but I mean that's that's neither here nor there. It's not a big detail it's just you know it's a minor detail. The point is Jay Marcello sooner would surrounded by talent surrounded by guys in a lineup. Who are not just outs? And I'm not saying that. He was ever surrounded by outs he obviously can perform. That's that's the that's evident Harrison Nuggets of varying tastiness. He's under his job has underperformed his expected Wilbur. In five of the last six seasons. Wonder if there's something about his swing about as bad path about something he's doing that doesn't have his results match up with his bad is bad at all Paul. J. What's his average launching over that time period. It's interesting you should ask that because that's another thing that changed significantly this past last year it was thirteen point. Five was his launch angle. His previous high over that stretch ten point eight interesting thing And I don't know if you have the ability to go back in time quickly while we're talking about it but maybe take a look at those numbers during those years. There's in Miami sixteen seventeen seventy and see what those numbers look like. And that was the only year. His is woah actually outperformed his expected Wilbur. The only ear that That he actually played better than his underlying line. Numbers would have expected him to his launch. Angle was ten point one which is his lowest over the last four seasons What see about what kind of batted balls was he put into play there so obviously the fly ball ball rate has gone up? I mean not not obnoxiously honestly so but generally his ground ball rate has gone down which is not probably not bad things strikeout rate up. He's pulling the ball far more than he did in two thousand seventeen so I'm asking you about the strike saying Oh. His strikeout rate was actually slightly lately. Lower in two thousand nineteen and it wasn't 2017. His walk rate eleven point three percent. That was almost doubled from two thousand eighteen The one thing I will about those before we move on his. Opiates plus adjusted for the League. Since two thousand sixteen one ten one forty nine one six one zero seven so in three of those four seasons he was a nearly identical player. The one that sticks out is twenty. Seventeen we'll see if that's repeatable. Wow Wow I also I you know. We talked about Tearing down a qualifying offer and he ended up getting like four or five. Hundred grand less I'm sure I wasn't reported that he turned down multi-year offers and it was. It was an issue. I thought I saw somewhere that he did have multi year offers on the table. But the the the AV wasn't satisfactory especially after turning down the qualifying offer so you probably tried to recoup some money on a pillow contract. I do like Osuna going to a team like the braves joining a lineup. That has some big time thumping it And and kind of getting back to maybe not the exact 2017 formed from an offensive offensive Production standpoint But I do like the idea of a player bidding on themselves and I love seeing how you know like contract years some guys go into contract years and it gets to them. They have down years. You're going into a pill you're caught like that's your choice. That's what you chose. I like to see the end result of that. I do you think like we're not. You're not thinking that Marcello Zuma's replacing JD. No I'm not known. No no I mean the production shutout Josh Donaldson again for for having A bet on me ESPECIALLY AFTER THE TRADE TO CLEVELAND Where there are people ruling out this guy for the rest of his career? They're like yeah. You know that this is it you know. He's on his last legs and then he signs the one year your deal with the braves and has an outstanding season turns that into a four year. Deal the twins Do I think that Marcello Zuma's going to turn this into a four year year deal next winner. You're probably not but do I think that the Atlanta braves can get Comparable production to what he did in in Miami and twenty seventeen. I don't think that's unfair. I think especially you know. You look at Marceau's soon as a first year in in Saint Louis that twenty eight thousand season incredibly disappointing. I think it'll be somewhere in between that. I think it'd be better than he wasn't two thousand eighteen and in somewhere maybe underneath where he was in two thousand seventeen. Well let's see if they can Let's see see if they can dust it off and find that diamond in there because there's no replacing the bringer of rain. Now just you hope you can forecast yourself at at least thirty pumps out of Marcell. That's what the what the braves are looking for. They're also looking to to dust off another diamond and it's okay. It's okay that we can just lost. Its shine most minor league league deals here. But we're give. This is a tip of the CAP. Really that we're even. Yeah I there's there will be no king Felix slander on this particular program Graham This is a man who's career should be looked back on as one of excellence Who you know? He gave his body to the game. I mean at at the end there. That's not a guy that can't figure out shit. That's not a guy that ran out of gas. I mean this is a guy that Injuries told the the tale of the of the the the latter stages of it. But it doesn't matter how or when King Felix goes out. We're all going to remember the excellence that he pitched with so whether I mean he's an easy to root for. We saw that last. START IN SEATTLE He had the send off that he deserved in Seattle Whether or not you make it was an act with the braves. Don't know but it was. It was incredible I was at that game. I was there for that. Start and there. Were people there early. They all had the yellow shirts on the king's court. That day was the entire ballpark. Everybody was a part of the Kings scored that day and he in like true heroic fashion after the game came out and circled. The the entire perimeter of the ballpark shook hands. Took pictures with fans even brought me over. gave me a hug. Just graduated him let him know. Hey man you are the king you are the king. That was really cool for me just to be able to kind of share that exchange that with him on a day where he was facing you know again you face your mortality at certain points in times. And that's what he was doing. He was putting to rest. The the legend of King Felix in the mariners uniform all of the great memories all the great teams he was a part of all of the tremendous moments that he shared with that fan base. He got to experience one last time. Let those fans capture their moment with their king and then move on and this is this is about loving the game invokes because it Felix Hernandez makes the team. You want to know what she makes when she gets to play baseball next year. If Felix Hernandez makes the team to tell million bucks them and it's not about I mean if we're being real like if you were to break it up an average it out what he's investing in terms of feeding himself training modalities recovery Shit like that in an offseason. Like it's not like he's paying to play the game but the Roi is nowhere near what it would be if you were to scale it down for average joes like you. You're metered nowhere near worth the fucking time. Were fucking pain. Were nowhere near it man. So he's not here for the for the paycheck. He's here to intentionally put his arm around some young kids in that camp. Show them the truth. Show them the light. Show them the way and continue to Passau. I saw the wealth of knowledge that he's accumulated over his time in the big leagues. So you're talking about a dude who's what how. How old is he? Jay Thirty six thirty is thirty six. I don't even think he's at all I think he's like thirty. Four King Felix is thirty. Three years to two hundred and ninety four days is Jerry. He's ask you this then Dallas. Let me ask you this. If you the Seattle Mariners and you're you're describing what the Atlanta braves want to do with him. You bring them into camp you you have. You have him lead. The younger guys got a guy like Sirocco over there who can really take a big step next year and become a a an elite ace in the National League. Why not if you're Seattle? Wow is do that with your own guys. It's a million bucks I mean they're they're doing a jerk but I mean it will point in time like do you have to send a message as well like we're not we're not the old guy purgatory and I say that. With all due respect but could you imagine as a younger player walking into a clubhouse that key Felix was supposed to have love you know left his mark on and in physically left behind. Well he still going to be there. And then you've got each euro the living legend as well kicking around that's man. That's that's two guys that are going to create a shadow are going to cast a shadow that some of these younger players might feel intimidated about trying trying to break out of you know and it is a great idea if Felix's into it to have him come back in that regard but this is also a case of Felix saying I. I want to play baseball so I know Seattle. The offer isn't to come in and actually compete for a spot. And if I do you're willing to see what I like. That's not where our relationship is anymore and I understand that and the idea of changing scenery is probably the biggest decision in his aside from him. Not Not having Felix Hernandez Chink Felix startup anymore. So Atlanta throws the flare up Felix Bites. And he's going to go and try to again leave. His Are On the mountain. You guys talk about some express surprise at his age. There are plenty of people who listen to podcast who did not experience all of Felix Hernandez and as a career like the basically the three of us did it's worth noting among all pitchers to debut in since integration so nineteen forty seven to the present. He ranks twelfth in innings pitched through age twenty nine and that okay so twelfth. Whatever that that's not number one that's not number two that is incredibly incredibly impressive? Because all of the other pitchers that are ahead or near him didn't debut in anywhere near the same era that Felix Hernandez did among people to like. Don Drysdale is the highest debuted in nineteen fifty. Six Right Sam McDowell is the one guy ahead of Felix. He's he's eleventh. Nineteen one thousand nine hundred sixty one if you only look. He's basically he threw innings because he debuted so early. He racked up so many innings before hitting thirty that it was if he was if he was pitching in a different era. And the only guy who compares to him in terms of workload in their twenties is among modern players. Lisa bathroom yeah. We're talking about for Felix from folks from two thousand eight to two thousand fifteen again. Two Thousand Eight two thousand fifteen seven hundred ninety six and two thirds innings. That's a shitload okay. And that is is again. That is what eight straight seasons of thirty plus starts easily two hundred plus innings in each each one of those lead this led the League in innings one of those years. I mean these are these are like Like when you look at Roy Halladay stats when it's like. Oh yeah like like you got five straight years of of two hundred innings and it's like when you when you look at a guy that a clip like today if you have a guy that eclipse is two hundred innings. It's like all right a two. Oh seven and two thirds look at some of these years from Felix Hernandez two hundred and thirty eight in two thirds two hundred forty nine thirds two hundred thirty three and two thirds two hundred thirty three two hundred thirty six like these are just like a unfathomable numbers when you look at today's starters and he was just wearing it every single year. A year thirty four starts thirty four starts thirty three starts. Thirty three starts thirty one thirty four thirty one like these are some of the season. We're talking about here where it's like his. He's thirty four years old but his fucking arm is fifty five He. He's he's definitely got wear and tear by the age. At which Max Sir debuted in the Major Leagues Felix Hernandez had already thrown six hundred sixty six and a third innings. Yeah Oh Felix. His shoulder looks on the inside like Bartolo. Cologne looks on the outside off. Wow that's not get it all. Love Love Bart. Yeah so Felix you know what you gotTa do to look good though what's up. Yeah I know what you gotTa do. Do you guys Jeremy landscaper. You gotta be escaper. You're one of. I have no shame in that by the way and there should be no. She should absolutely no. Are you kidding me what trust me.

The Milwaukee brewers for for helping us make that happen as well the PR over there I can't relate to this ad because I'm in Miami and a seventy degrees but if you're in New York if you're in Boston if you're on the east coast. The weather is getting colder winters. Officially here from the Perfect Game Day outfit to the only sweatshirt you'll want to wear this winter. The barstool sports store has your winter gear covered. Go to store Barstool. Sports DOT COM to shop right now The hall of fame which is a time honored tradition. Not really so much in the sense that you probably think I just meant. It's a time honored tradition. Where Baseball Paul fans now head to the Internet to bitch about things in January which by the way is not a complaint like people talk about the fan voting? Now it's like oh it's a headache and the the voters that turn the blank ballots this you know you want me to play. God you want when you play judge and jury dude. We're just fucking talking baseball. It's really not just people on the world. Yeah it's really not that big of a deal we're just talking baseball and I think we should all be thankful that this is sort of built in thing that happens every off season to where there's no games being played. Some winters are pretty slow. Maybe the free agents like this year. They're already all bought up. There's no trades no trade rumors that are happening. That are super exciting You get to have a baseball discussion about your favorite players from years past and we got to do that again with this hall of Fame Class Derrick Derek jeeter one vote shy of being unanimous which funding kind of funny called it. I still don't know who the one person was. And will we ever know who cares. Who cares what the for two? Excuse me there's no such thing as the Super Hall of fame like you're out. There's no such thing as the Super Hall told you right now. I knew who it was. You wouldn't WanNa know. I'd like to know what their thought process was like. I don't care what their name is because people I want to know the name to like. Go harass them if this person wanted to remain anonymous and then they put their explanation on like some forum. I've read it. Yes I WANNA know Washington Australia who you are well. This is why I care who you are is because if you give a shit about the hall of fame and you actually care about the stories that should should be told about the game then you care about the people that are charged with the authority to put those stories into the public eye. And that's what the hall of fame is. It is a museum and if you are charged with the responsibility of putting people in there you need to prove one one your connection to the game and then you need to prove why you deserve that connection to the game based on your response response and your explanation of this ballot. I find it very hard to swallow that we have individuals that have the respect of everybody walking around in our industry that take it as a major major undertaking to explain why they have cast a vote that they feel so strongly about for individuals to be honored at the highest level that are sport acknowledges. Okay that's like Kavak. Just a bunch of assholes vote on. WHO's getting the Medal of honor? People that have never enlisted people that have never ever once come under fire actually actually have a say in who gets metal and what is considered courageous enough. What get the Fuck Outta here so oh for baseball writers people that have these votes they care they care so if you're one of them who doesn't kind of like this person? Whoever this may be we need to find that out and we need to weed that out because there's only you can only go one way? It's a vote though. I mean like it's it's not like all right. There's been so many hall of fame that we can all agree are slam dunk. I Bow Hall of famers and none of them were one hundred percent. And there's never been a witch hunt like like ever like this derrick jeeter witch-hunt to find out like Ted Williams like twenty. Something people like like Hank Aaron Willie. mays like guys like this. That had like twenty. Something people are in the teens. That didn't vote for them. There's never a witch hunt defined. I was just like all right there. I bought a hall of Famer. Congratulations can't wait to hear the speech. But Derek jeter again is the highest voting percentage in history for a position player. Does he deserved distinction. No is he. The greatest position player to ever play. Baseball knows even in the conversation. No but it's like and then you look at the other side of it and it's like all right if you look at Derek jeter's career is he undoubtedly a hall of Famer. Yes so so in that case. All right if you're baseball reporter or a writer you're a student of the game and you love the game in the history of the game. Then he should be one hundred percent but associate a shit ton of other people that never even came close to one hundred percents. I can't we can't go there though. We can't go there and the reason that this matters. Jared is because think about what has been forced fed to us from the writer stable about their opinions of character not mattering right. They're not bringing personal prejudices into their well. We all watched John Hayman on. MLB Network. We all saw what he said about how that went. I mean what No. No no John Right. That's exactly what he did was he admitted to his bias. Impacting voting for Curt Schilling right purchase. Ah He's the only one dumb enough to say publicly on MLB network but there are a lot of people like him. Well I believe we had another individual J.. A coworker of ours didn't he. Just just come out and say publicly that I believe it's Keith. Law Who is debating on whether or not to continue voting for the hall of fame and and it's because the one that got in a twitter spat with Kurt showing. It's like it's like I just don't like you because we argued over fucking like the Bible verses is like evolution yes a lot of stuff but but that's my point is is you either need like if you're somebody who has that responsibility and you are weighing whether or not to continue to carry that responsibility because you don't think you're capable of separating your personal feelings from what an individual achieved on a baseball field and his or her personal feelings if you're not capable of doing that and you're already thinking about giving it up kind of like we say in the game you might as well take the other spike off because you've already got one if you're thinking thinking about retiring you've already got one spike up you might as well just take the other one off so you're already thinking that you're biased isn't going to allow you to credibly. Cast a vote moving forward. Then you should give it away right now. Why let me play devil's advocate here for a second part of this Character clause. Why is it that the character clause is invoked constantly for PD related affairs and is seemingly dismissed as irrelevant for somebody like curt schilling Because PD's are not something something that would impact the every man on a day to day basis right like the every man's life isn't altered uniquely weekly by them taking performance enhancing drugs looking ripped and executed nine to five job but they're within yes. It's J. their opinions are like every man right so curt schilling as great as he was a pitcher of ice postseason performer. He Still Bill has the center of your your acknowledging. That's utter bullshit though right what. You're explaining why it's the case but that's bullshit. I'm just giving you absolutely not no. I'm not defending. I'm always into trying to look at things like give me the answer as to why we've already come in with. That's the reality. Let's let's try to understand. Let's try to understand the weight. 'cause to me like without getting too deep in the weeds on chill like there is a little bit of nuance here in that. It's it's not like forget. Let's put hayme aside for a second. Because what he said was if that's his feelings than that stupid like you can't let your personal feelings toward someone impact it but Kurt has said things and done things that this is not like I'm I'm against the wealth tax or I prefer small government. This is not. These aren't really political points. Alien Nation of this this is an active aggressive stance that curtis taken across the board on lots of different things that has alienated lots of different people. That if if you wanted to invoke the character close to me it would be just. It would be more applicable towards that type of content than it would be somebody the WHO took performance enhancing drugs and played baseball. You're you're absolutely right. The problem with that Jay is now we've got to go back and dig up all those ghosts right and we've got to tell you we've got. We either have to understand that human beings make mistakes and you're not gonNA agree with them all and if you don't that shouldn't take away from what they did athletically on a field of sports. Okay to classify what Schilling has said and done mistakes would be misrepresenting. How Oh he views those today because he had an interview with Bob Costas where he had ample opportunity to Show any level of remorse for what he said and he spent the entire interview. And I don't care if he's listening to this or not he. He spent the entire interviews Basically blaming other people and how other people react and that to me suggests that like whatever I have a hall of fame boat so it doesn't matter but like to me. Schilling is a little bit more complicated than people don't like this guy and thus they they aren't voting for him. Yeah but but but really though. I don't think it is any more complicated than that for the reasons that you just expressed is but it's not a dislike of the person it's there is it is because it's heretic. Laws that is provided to these voters that they have invoked time and again on on complete and utter bullshit and now that it is in theory being invoked on something that might actually have some sort of then all of a sudden it's just some personal gripe against a guy maybe it is in some cases because John Hayman clearly voiced right across the board to me is. It's more complicated the Matt and that's why I go back to the whole notion that you're going to have to dig up the ghost because that's what the defense is going to be is. Why am I any different than active members of the Ku Klux Klan? That people are talking about in the hall of fame. What that's what Kurtz going to say like I? I'm not a member of the Ku Klux Klan is what Kurtz going to say and removing people currently in the hall of fame who have been there for hundreds of years and then not someone and not actively voting somebody who's is not in their whatever it's that would be. That would be a step in the direction of you. Know really making that character clause something something worth of Note Right Because Sandy Ramirez could pretty much put later. If that's yeah I mean manny's Manny's kind of a different case. I did see an interesting thing going back to shillings on field performance. And this kind of blew my mind even as somebody who has really looked into. She'll statistics the goal record and to me a question. He's if you line up his numbers career with Bob Gibson's numbers shockingly walking lease similar in quality like it's unbelievable like they have the exact same number of career war basically and I'll say this this much about. She'll knows how good he is. Of course he does and he'll let you know it every now and then but to be in that Pantheon he's like to share a room with him or whatever like he's not beating you over the head with that stuff all day I mean and he's certainly somebody who has studied the game and appreciates somebody somebody like Bob Gibson and his and his place in the game. Whatever I just to go back to the very first thing that was said in taller fame conversation these these voters who are like we need secrecy to protect us from the mobs online? It's like Oh my God well you the hall of fame. Who'd late writers you writer get out? Well the writers said that they were okay with having their no. I know these people. Don't talk politics. The hall of fame directly. Yeah no the hall of fame the Hall of Famer. We're the ones who said we're not GONNA do it. We're not going to glad Larry got him. Yes yeah long fucking overdue Larry Walker. So I can't stand the the taught in the case of Todd Helton where it's like you look at the home road splits or whatever. It's like all right yeah. Chorus field helped out a ton OPIE. PS PLUS is ballpark adjusted. Larry Walker had a career. OPN plus of one forty one. You know who else had a career. Plus one forty one chipper Jones motherfucker got ninety eight point three percent of the vote in his first year of eligibility. Not Saying that he didn't deserve that. But Larry Walker did not deserve have to wait as long as he did. Same thing wins above replacement The average wins above replacement of a position player for the hall of fame is sixty. Nine Larry Walker seventy two you point six so this was a guy that deserved it should not have waited as long as he had to wait. I think this was a product of older voters is not being in tune with advanced statistics falling out the younger voters who do look advanced statistics. Comparing Larry Walker his the time period. Other Hall of Famers And and being like yeah this is what are we talking about. Here Larry Walker as a hall of Famer and now the voting represents represents that he's going to cooperstown long overdue. I also think this is an important. This was important and necessary step for the future of or the future rockies fame candidates And people who spend time in chorus field because Larry Walker I think I think the the deep statistical digging and the vetting that was done over his ten year period most of it done in the last couple of years really shed light on the fact that Larry Walker was incredibly productive in places that were not chorus field right like I think. I don't remember who tweeted it. Maybe it was Jason Stark That Larry Walker's road triple slash line is essentially Derek jeters careerstep different positions. Of course one of them was bad. shortstop one of them is a great fielder. But I mean there's no question Larry Walker should have been the hall of fame name it certainly in terms of like the actual candidacy and that weeks in moments and hours leading up to it. It's one of the more memorable for me personally. Just because he got on twitter he he. There was that video out where he said. I don't think I'm going to get in right or the tweet or whatever. There was a lot of speculation from the projection system. Not Not just Ryan tiptoe system but the people who make projections off of those trends most of those people were saying that he would be in or out by two or three votes the day of so it was very dramatic and his his video. Reaction was very cool. Nice t-shirt he one guy said he looked like he just got done dry like he just finished the Daytona five hundred shot over to the bass astor's caught a limit and then jumped in the fucking grave digger and just started jumping is monster trucks all over the place and then was like all swing by this little thing where they apart. Yeah yeah they're just going to. There's going to do this. Bronze there's GonNa put it in his hall of all live there forever. Now Yeah Either of you have any more thoughts on on on the hall of fame because I kind of want to jump off on the rockies mentioning the rockies and get into the no-one Arnaldo basically I mean this is a guy that sign extension two days after we talked to them. DALLAS SPIKES UP Sainz a eight year two hundred and sixty million dollar extension and says all the right things afterwards like hey I wanna I wanna be here for the long haul. I want to win here. This is my home. This is where I WANNA be. And then less than a year later the rockies are shopping him trying to trade the Guy Hi Nolan didn't put out a statement he I think he was talking to a reporter via text message and Because I you you know I don't basically said fuck fuck them you know you know what I mean like He. He was I don't there's some people back there that don't like They're not handling this well. And if you're Nolan wouldn't feel the same way where it's like okay. I understand I have an opt out in two years but we just completed year one. There's two more years before my opt opt out. I sign this extension good-faith presumably could have gotten more On the open market as a free agent any two hundred sixty million is is one of those deals where he referred to it as a as a deal the offer that he couldn't refuse. I'm sure that someone would have exceeded two hundred sixty million if they had the chance. That's the sign. Nolan are not always a free agent. So I'd be pissed if our him to it. Sounds like there's a a beef with with the general manager in Colorado and now if you have a a you know the rockies GM coming out being like yeah well. We're going to move forward with Nolan as our third baseman moving forward like well. He's our guy and I look forward to seeing him on opening day after shopping him for an entire offseason. So no one's like well fuck you then like it's Ah yes trade of Cori- and if you're 'cause you sign that in good faith and you said like I'm here for the long haul gone in a year. I don't understand I I don't understand though how a GM like how GM doesn't realize as angry as this guy is. He's angry because this one. I told him that we were going to be building around him and I told him that he was going to be the foundation for what we're going to be doing thing moving forward and he wanted to be here which is why he never got to the point of entertaining other suitors right so science for the money and then as you said you're finds out that he's basically being sold to to the highest bidder for what what happened Taylor when the other crazy part is that the rockies gave him a full no trade clause and he didn't even ask for it they're just like boom here you go full no trade clause so now if you're pissing off your franchise player and you're shopping him around. Did you forget that he asked to agree to it. I like he's like if he's pissed off off at the rockies in the I mean the GM obviously most importantly he's not GonNa do you any favors on the way out. Where if you go to Nolan? And you're like Hey the cardinals the braves and whoever the dodgers You know the cardinals have given us the best offer prospect wise. So we'd prefer for if you went there and he's like all right. Well fuck you them like I wanna go to the dodgers like well Jay. This has last. Say he has all all the power here he doesn't he doesn't though because if you're the GM you understand how passionate this young man is right you understand how passionate or not and he's he's not going to. He's not into wasting his prime years. He's he's identified this window as a time that he needs to strike while his iron is at its hottest and this window is now. So if you're treating me like shit it you're not communicating with me your shopping me. You're basically being two-faced but on the way out my options are contending places aces you think. Nolan aeronautics going to tell the GM to fuck off because he doesn't want to go to a winner let's not even about a winner. It's like what if you geographically ethically you. Don't WanNa go to cardinals. I don't WanNa go to St Louis. It's like I signed here. I don't have to go there. I think when you're talking about that money that's Where Nolan or an auto saying look? I've got what I what I needed. which was the number to be comfortable now? I can focus on my ring and where I get that ring by not matter as much as it did if this would have been a free agent type suitor ship or courtship. Excuse me because now if I have options laid out in front of me I've got a very good chance of seeing where these clubs are at right now like this year because for Nolan Aaron auto if he goes to a contender this year and that contender wins the world series. Jerry this bellies full. Oh for sure for sure but at the end of the day I mean yeah the the teams that are in the market arket for our contenders. No doubt but if he doesn't want to go to a certain team he doesn't have to he's got the full no trade He's got all the cards cards. He's got the leverage But I mean I will they will the rockies have Nolan are Nado in their lineup on opening day at this point probably because I don't think you can walk back publicly stating like yeah. We're moving forward with. No one is our third baseman. What do you mean to tell me that a guy who just signed and his perennial all-star Platinum Glove Third Baseman to a two hundred sixty million dollar deal and then turn around and put him on a trade block is not not going like that guy is going to be totally honest and forthcoming right? I mean you can't publicly say we're moving forward with him as our like like. That's it like they. The people are looking at them like. They're looking at him as Bro. This is just as bad as what handing a guy two hundred and sixty million dollars and shopping him that is what this is tantamount to. That is exactly what that is is doing is saying something that he's not going to do. I feel that's the world we live in. Is it not this guy's going to get up and tell you we're not moving them and then the deal that he couldn't pass up comes across his desk he's going to be so spiteful Vipul as to not move he's GonNa be prideful. Is the ego going to get in the way. That's the only question. Yeah it'd be a tough luck but I still think they they start the season with them but he's probably gone by the trade deadline. Well especially if losses ninety one games last year and he ate. He ain't having that man so he can almost an again. The team's got the final. Say Right they've got a sign the they've got to sign the paperwork but wouldn't it be something if Nolan could just say. You know what Y'all I'M GONNA go. Actually actually I'M GONNA. I'M GONNA see myself out of this team now. Yeah so I guess that's something to keep an eye on as of right now not going anywhere but we shall see Final thoughts. It's about Goddamn time we've got the microphone. It's about it's about time the UMPIRES or going to be in a position issued educate the fans But I am. I am a thousand percent here for the audio bloopers. That are that are inevitable. They're coming coming and I am here for. Yeah I just I need the I need the Joe West Concert got out got to have the Joe West concert just let them rip on players weekend. It's what the people want to give the people what they want. Jay You see Adam Jones get mobbed Japan. Yeah that's it. That's baseball culture over there. No I know it was just cool. It is cool and it looked like he was enjoying it to a little bit. Yeah it's it is a revitalization revitalization just a complete rejuvenation. I remember going over there and when we when we opened up against the socks and and like they knew do they knew who we all were like. They know that they knew who I was. I was breaking camp with the team for the first time time ever and it was because we were going to Japan or whatnot but they knew each one of us were right in there on you for autographs and Shit. I actually early. An autograph seeker had his pin out and like hit my sleeve. Like got it on my sleeve and like was trying to give me money for the jacket because he was like you know very sorry very apologetic but it is a. It's it's an insane experience. If you've if you've never experienced is like a clash of culture and Sport together Japanese Baseball fucking unbelievable. Yeah Brent actually just got back from from Japan did she enjoy it. The S she did. I don't know that I would ever go there but I feel like At some point it's going to be my choice. We'll we'll see we'll see what happens But also as a reminder starting nine youtube channel subscribe every time that we you do an interview which is pretty much once a week on this podcast The video from that interview will drop on our Youtube Channel.

We would be remiss without acknowledging the loss of a true goat of a transcendent figure not only in our society in our sport world. And that's the idea of being a transcendent figure as you're just not doc boxed in or defined by either what your job is what your title is in whatever occupation you might hold. This is about being bigger than any one game. And it's not just reserved for Kobe Bryant in who we all know unfortunately parish in a very tragic helicopter accident alongside his daughter gee-gee and there were some other folks on that airplane as well and while we don't need to divulge all of their names. It's out of respect for their families in the grieving process. The idea that the baseball world old was not affected is just something. We kind of want to address in China. Some light on and we WANNA take some time to remember Mr John Ulta belly and when you talk about impact of individuals in our life coaches instructors that is what this man and represented the head coach of Orange Coast. Orange juice junior college. Excuse me and when you talk about accomplishments the accomplishments speak for themselves guys won state championships. National I I believe the American Baseball Coaches Association. The coach of the year in twenty nine thousand nine hundred and there have been countless big leaders that have taken to social media and express their loss. And obviously there's a avoid that's created not only in his immediate circle but in the baseball world in the sporting world as well and the beautiful thing about our game is there's going to be a healing process. That's allowed to start to take place. Almost instantaneously contain Asli. Maybe just hit pause and take five minutes to remember these folks and remember their lives lived and remember the impact of somebody in your life that you might still have a relationship with. Maybe you no longer do. Maybe they're no longer here but let's take that time to remember that each and every day we wake up it's not guaranteed. We all know that in these are all more reasons to just continue to wake up an attack each and every day like it will be our last. 'cause you just never know when your time is up so again. Our condolences and positive thoughts and energy to all the families involved in this tragic accident.

Yeah, Paulie is its hammers mixed with cheese mixed with thereto. Oh, lovely, just took our game to another level there, I. Coming Up, Bob Euchre the hall of Famer, Milwaukee brewers broadcaster come back for his I think fiftieth season with the brewers. He's GonNa. Do Their home games coming up and when you when you think of Bob Euchre well. He was an average baseball player. And I think he actually got traded because he was a good personality. Not a good baseball player I think he was traded to the cardinals because he was considered a guy who was a good clubhouse guy. And you know He. He was below the Mendoza. It should have been the EUCHRE line like. I think. He was right at the Mendoza line and even two hundred for his career, so he was Mendoza before Mendoza. And But he parlayed this into. He was on late night with Johnny Carson. And he was just so funny because he made fun of himself. Self, deprecating and Carson just let him go and loved him. Then the Miller lite commercial he was on that, and then he was in the major league movies as the announcer. A household name and but he was also the brewers broadcaster. and. He just he has that great ability to tell a story and have fun. So I thought it would be great to send you in to the weekend. At least thinking of some positive things, some fun things about Major League Baseball so bob will join US coming up in a little bit eight seven seven three DP show email address tps Dan Patrick dot com. Spent a lot of time on some different things including the decision, the back story with Lebron James and the decision. We're coming up on ten years ago. Imagine that each twenty-five Lebron. Had the power to be able to say ESPN I. Want an hour to make my decision of where I'm going to go now. That was the first mistake. was you needed an hour to do that? Because Jim Gray had to ask twenty three questions. Before. He got the answer of where Lebron was going. I mean it was poorly produced, but the power of that and that kind of opened the door I think for some of these athletes to be able to go. You know we can kind of control the story. Derek cheater with the players. Tribune just had a lotta these but tiger woods controls. You know his press releases, but That was a fascinating story at the time and Don van Natta by all accounts is done a really good job on the decision. That'll be Sunday night on ESPN. Then I ask him. What's what's the next thing you're working on? He goes well. We're. Pretty deep into the detail story I went. Oh all right. I'm interested in that. So Anti Tale Played Notre Dame and got catfish I never I never knew the term catfish until mantle tail. And? He got catfish because this great story heart warming story it was you know right out of a Hollywood movie? got a girlfriend. She's in a car accident. She's got leukemia. She has her phone on her hospital room. Mantar tail has his phone on, and he falls asleep and they talk to each other. And then we find out that he didn't have then his girlfriend died, and this is while Notre. Dame is playing for a national title with Alabama. So that will be an interesting one with the. backstory with Don van. NATTA, but will they get. To cooperate. Because the decision Lebron James is not in the decision and Jim Gray, who hosted is not in that. Story as well, yeah, Paulie. If you're anti Tayo and ESPN said nine. We'll do this. We'll do a thirty for thirty around it. Would you participate not? It's kind of in your ear now. The. No gotTa move on now upside. No, no, no. No. Yes todd. What if meant I tell it says I don't believe ESPN I'm not gonNA. Get Catfish again. You're not really doing a documentary on me, so I'm not going to. Do well. That's not even that might be a little bit of a stretch their. Bob Euchre's career average was actually one nine, nine seven, so we have to round up to get to two hundred there so. We'll give him that. COUPLE OF PHONE CALLS HERE FILLING INDIANA. Fill you for moon. Dan It's always a pleasure. Your First Class Guy I wanted to comment on mant Te'o. The I lived in south. Bend at the time, the hot story there was that he'd found out the night of the heisman trophy presentation, which he came in second, and then he still when they interviewed him during that night, even though he had found out, he was catfish, t still commented on his deceased girlfriend so I just another `nother goofy twist but I just thought I'd bring it up all right well. Thank you Phil. I did not know that. It felt like. In and maybe he's acknowledged as polly that man. Continue the hoax. The in his interview. I, think it was. Oprah did another interview. He apologized for not clearing it up when he knew which was late November he knew that this. He's been played in and. I think that he just kept going, and he tried to downplay and talk about it in. Yeah, but deadspin had the expose on this and I reading an to read it again because I thought. Wait, what are they saying? None of this is true. is any of this true? He's true I. Don't know if anybody else is true here. We also talked about Vince Carter and his career and his impact on the career. I guess. There was discussion. In the sports world yesterday Vince Carter not a hall of Famer and I went. Unless it's another sport we're talking about. Of course. He's basketball hall of fame, but We're talking about best dunks. Is The dunk over Frederick Vice? The best dunk ever. I mean it is in game. It's in the Olympics. mclovin but the Olympics is not the same as NBA game. It's still in game, dunk. It's in the top ten house that he jumped over a seven footer. I think it's number one. Is High with a crater the cradle. Dunk by Dr. J. Over Cooper. Felt bad for coup. Because that's when you you know, you have good intentions, I'm going to go after this. And then all of a sudden, you could see coop just kind of. Out of the way, because doc was going to cradle, and then he. Was An awesome sunk. Ivory take something away from the Tom Chambers dog. Because you know if you ever jumped off a wall dunk, he was using Jackson as Legros. No I know I know, but he's still put his foot in Mark Jackson Sternum and then dunk donning. Brenton Texas joins just hi Brentwood he have for me today. Best Dunk of all time nominee. Ninety two Western, conference finals for your Sonics the one known as the lister blister where Shawn Kemp. The top of the key in Seattle dunks over former. Sonic Alton lister than as the double pointed him before heading back down the floor. Love you guys, thank you, bye! Yeah! That was harsh Shawn Kemp. God Shawn Kemp had a lot of town. He. He could have been great. Great NBA NBA player. Association announced the COVID. Nineteen test results if you've been waiting for those. In tests conducted of three hundred and two NBA players on June. Twenty third sixteen players have tested positive. That's that's all we know so sixteen of tested positive out of three hundred into. They'll. I'm not good at math is at five percent. Does that sound bad or I don't know? Who is tested positive is more interesting than how many tests positive. You know star players and who they've been around practicing with. Yes, mclovin! The Satish Nate Silver said that the positive test rate is usually about seven percent now so. But, so five percents in range kind of. What's going on out there? Jonathan in Florida he Jonathan. What do you have for me today? Would it be gentle. A happy meet Friday use the nets got a couple other good dunks I still think Vince Carter wants the best in Game I've seen just because it was on a world stage or just the setting. I think that was just crazy, but Another good one is Scottie Pippen over Patrick Ewing Ninety four playoffs. I believe that's probably the most. Clever teams yeah to the floor and then tell spike Lee to sit down. And then another another good wanNA sneaky one is Davis or Dre Chiro Minka and twenty two thousand seven playoffs. Just 'cause the crowd of you're just gone crazy after that and Andre Caroline Linko AK47 was supposed to be He was a great defensive player. Thanks for the phone call Jonathan. He's always up there and blocks like he was. He was a good defender, didn't he? Get the whole pants from his wife wasn't. Memory that you remember it. It's like nine years ago. It's Eh. Didn't he get a one? At one time only or a yearly hall pass from his wife. They still married. TJ In Colorado Tj, how are you? Good morning data morning time long time so I have one question or a two questions about the Kobe nineteen deal one. How big that Astra is going to be if Lebron test positive the week of the finals. And to would it be bigger deal if brady tested positive, assuming made it to the Super Bowl? I can't go that deep. Come on TJ of Friday a made it to Friday. We gotta think positive. And the deeper you go into the playoffs in NBA The less likely. I think that you're GONNA test positive. Anybody, who wins the title given? What is going on now? You earned it. I care who wins baseball you earn. College football urine football nfl you earn. NBA You earn. Absolutely. I think that's coming up. That's going to be the most of the most surreal videos of the year. Whoever wins the NBA title? They're going to celebrate and go nuts. It's one of the biggest days of their life in front of forty or fifty people in a half size Jim, in Orlando, Florida on Disney's campus and I don't care what sound they put in what they do to doctor it up. It's going to feel like when a team celebrates the summer. League in the NBA Times Twenty. because. They're going to go crazy I'm. A shoot confetti in the air, but you don't have people celebrate the NBA finals and the media Russia's. Going crazy. It'll be the exact opposite of that, but you're going to get these cities celebrating right, but not the moment a lot of although i. don't I mean you're not gonNa have social distancing when it comes to celebrate, it'll be in mass downtown wherever I remember being at staples when I was at the mothership and The Lakers won the title. and. We went into our broadcast truck. and. People were pushing the broadcast truck. And one of the people in their said show your face. and. Like I! It didn't register like I you, know they? They were burning a police car and so. One of the people in there I don't mentioning any names, but said to show your face. And I I stepped out of there are truck our TV truck. And they saw that it was me they for some reason, and then I just said Hey, guys stopped though, and and they did. But I we were worried that this. They try to chip over the TV truck. And so. When? Somebody says show your face I know. Do you want me to go down on. Oh Okay my bad. Don't worry about it, 'cause. You know we leave the building. Get in the truck because it's. It's getting crazy out there. And I was like Oh boy. This isn't how I want to go. Josh in Indiana. Hi Josh Woody today. Hey Dan. How's it going? happy me Friday. Thank you Josh.

Dudley I mean shoplifted his legs up and the whole. Hang on the RIM, saying and got some embarrassing within the ball out them and getting beat up Thank you, Anthony when Chris Dudley politician. When he a politician somewhere with all right? Yeah, but I I thought he held an office. Maybe one of the worst free throw shooters NBA history. What expect from a yearly? Wow! Dartmouth Trash, trash-talk right. Yeah, man, you're! You're crushing him. Now I think. I think Chris Dudley. He's listed as retired basketball, player and politician. I don't know. What do you have to be in office to be a politician? Can you call yourself politician if you're between gigs? What if you run for office, but don't win? Are you a politician at the well? This says that he ran for governor of Oregon. But? Did he get elect now won the primary, though it looks like yeah, but okay. What constitutes being a politician? If you get drafted in the NBA and the team doesn't sign you. Can you say you're a professional basketball player? That's what saying you gotta get a cheque. Right at one check one check. You gotta get something that says to the like the governor of Oregon sworn in. Even if you're ousted from office, not nothing like that would be Chris. Dudley, but if he was would have been governor Chris Dudley. He was like a forty one percent thrasher think. You did nice out of Mary's the nicest guy in sports. I can't believe he was a politician. Chris donelly. He had he had a good run. Who would've thought we'd talked about Chris Dudley today when you rather be journeyman. NBA Senator or governor foregin I'd rather be a journeyman Senate. How Governor Four? No. I don't want to be a governor. You definitely add one your fantasy teams. I could tell no. I did not have Kristalina my fantasy to like rebounding guy. I remember yeah. But. He would kill you in every other category Yep. We're huge in Oregon I think you could run him. Probably win if you chose to. What a great state to be a governor! I know it's. It's it's, a thankless job. Yes yeah, you don't want any part of that. In the right State Montana No. No I don't. I don't know I. I can't not good. What about like Senate. No no I, mean some of the jobs sound easy. Sounds like you've just cashing checks time these kids. Want to be a politician. Like, somebody asked me if I wanted to open a sports bar and I go why.

How's your morale? I'm doing okay. I'm glad we're going back to work and It'll be my sixty fifth year over all in baseball. You know as a player if you want to say that, and and of course calling the games here in Milwaukee, I worked a couple of. I worked a couple of seasons with the braves with Milo Hamilton and Ernie Johnson before bud brought me back to. Brought me back to Milwaukee, but other than that. I'm the hanging around and I'm waiting to go back to work. I. Just saw where your official batting average in your career was one ninety, nine seven. I you know that I couldn't. SPONSORS WOULD BE UPSET. If, they dropped below two hundred Because at that time and tide me with another sports, great, averaging, two hundred or better for a ten year period, and that was all the same Bowler Don Carson. Blow that off, but but we're you the Mendoza line before the Mendoza Line Bob well. Yeah, but she's got a job in baseball now. I think she works for the mets doesn't see. That's. That's a different Mendoza. Okay. Tell me if this is right. Did you get traded? Did your baseball career get extended because you were a good clubhouse sky? Oh Yeah I. Got To be done. I mean for a couple of extra bucks a month. I was making I was making below the minimum. You know that And and selling other players equipment got a couple of bucks doing laundry. There's a lot of things that you can do without playing I actually thought it was an infringement when they asked me to play a game. But I thought you got traded to the cardinals because you were going to back up carver and you might have had a better arm, but they liked your personality. And and. I think arm wise. I had one on each side which was. But yeah to back up to me. You remained a great friend and Of course you know, we went to world series that year, when I got traded to Saint, Louis and I'm not. I'M NOT GONNA. SAY ANYTHING THEY DIDN'T WIN ONE BE. What I. Something had to be working right when you. Were when you were I. Went went on on Carson first time. You're on there where you still playing baseball. No I was I was done and as a matter of fact. The first show I did with Johnny was in New York. They had to move to the West Coast you. Think it was in nineteen, seventy, maybe sixty, nine or seventy. How'd you end up on the show? I I had been friends with a great trumper, one of the legendary trumpeter of all time Albert. And I did a couple of jobs with him. I was traveling Alex Karras. Was a guy that I work with? He was there because he's a great. Player I was I was the wind up speaker, but I did a couple of jobs in the down hurt, and he told me it was going to be on the tonight show and I said Oh. Yeah, sure well I. got a call from the tonight. Show about two weeks later. I went to New York I had a I had auditioned with a talent guy and he went in his office and he said what do you do? I said nothing I'm. Still see some of your stuff or let me hear what you're going to talk about. Saw did a couple of things. He told me we'll call you back. Two weeks later. They called me back to New York and I did the show Johnny. And I remember the one thing that was funny about it. Dan was at the end of the show when you know saying good night and everything. I heard Donnie. Saito had after we good nights did that guy really play baseball? I think so. I went back two weeks later and. Did another one and then I. Got To be kind of a pretty regular with with Johnny we had a great relationship, and I I still do with doc. Severinsen and A lot of the guys in the band. I I would go over and do a tonight show. When we were playing in Anaheim when the brewers were playing in Anaheim. I would go over and do it tonight. Show and then come back I'd get back maybe in the third inning. And some of the guys would come up and sit in a booth at the Ballpark, so it was I I had a great time with tonight shows all the time. How did that Change Your Life? well, it raised my salary by two hundred and twenty dollars a month. that was a big thing. I had a pension. You know the screen actors guild so I wasn't worried about baseball anymore, Did you know I stuck around baseball six years I? Guess had a great time doing it. May great you know really great friendships and putting yourself. And your crew there but. all of those you know. If I ever had a good year, really screwed me up later. Couple Times got off to good starts. I had to go in the tank. Well yeah, nobody, there's nothing funny about getting off to a good start. You know like batting. Two twenty five is not funny, but one ninety seven. That's funny exactly exactly and you know sitting in the other team that dugout. Not always all that pleasant, but it was still the game. wearing a load uniform at home. But Carson. Introduced you untie when you think of great baseball players, a lot of names come to mind Bob Euchre's not one of them right. And he called YOU MR, baseball. Yeah and that kind of stuck around he. He I I have a great picture at home. You're the elston Howard and Roger Marris in New York and and Mickey's all Johnny and Heath. He's got. You gotta a Yankee uniform on and it. It looks awful on him. The ways wearing it the socks. Are you know down on the ground? But he's with them. When he had a glove on I think he tried to throw batting practice. To those guys at Yankee, Stadium Really Yeah Oh yeah. He He. He, he was a great guy to to work with. Dan, and I like I said before. I always had a great time with he treated me. I never got. Bumped off the show you know I always stayed on and somebody else got bumped But we had A. we had a good relationship. The fact I went out to The University of Nebraska he built a, he built a studio and A. Really Nice out there for you know people who want to get involved and movies television whatever it may be and I went out there as part of the opening with that with our without owner Mark Attanasio. It was a matter of fact and had a great time. They did a lot of shows you. Tonight shows that Johnny I. I could break his chops man. I make him laugh. I just saw on I just sent me one of me, and it was a picture of me and Bob Gibson holding hands I love that picture. So that's, that's the team picture. So Gibson was in on the joke. The team picture with the hall of fame. Pitcher, you're. You're holding hands with Bob Gibson. Who seemed like a very serious guy? He was. Really good the great friend as a guy getting ready to shoot to shoot the photos, I just reached over and grabbed his hand, and we both started. Was Really Good I love it. We're talking to Bob Euchre his fiftieth year with a the brewers and people should know like you did have some legitimate moments there. You homered off Sandy Colfax. I mean that's that's real at Dodger Stadium Right? Yeah, but I you know every time I see him apologize. Keep my whole family was really worried about that? Is that why Sandy doesn't do? Interviews is because he gave up the home run to you. That's part. That's part of it. Yeah, I don't know why. I hit him fairly well. I really don't Maybe was. Probably five thirty. Well you didn't want those shadows if Colfax was on the mound. That'd be troubled, did you? Did you have to audition for the role of Harry, Doyle and majorly? No you know I was doing a game in Chicago against the White Sox with the brewers and. and a security guy came in and said there's two guys outside WanNa. Talk to you so when I got off for my innings off. I went out in the Hallway Comiskey. Park And Chris. And David Ward were there and they had the script for the movie and asked me if I would consider it. So I'll look at it which I was going to do it anyway whether it was good or bad. but I looked at it and read it and they told me Oh. You do whatever you want. You do the script do year stuff. Do whatever you want. And I, did and I had a good time. You know I met a lot of good people and the movie did good and Major League, two major. Major League three was on airplanes adapt. We've finished. Those terrible yeah, did you know at the time when you did the first Major League? That was going to be good? you know it had some really funny stuff in it in watching I met Sally seen the first night. The bruins came back from a road trip and the ready set up county stadium for the movie and. They would ask me if I go in and say hello to Charlie and you wanted to say alone, and so I went and his trailer and talked to him for a while, and then when I watched even throw, I mean he threw pretty good. He really. And watching Tom Barringer work behind the plate and Steve Ager deserve a lot of credit for that, too, because he really worked with with Tom, but you know the the script was kind of funny I didn't use any big time. Curse words I was kind of. shocked when I heard the first one, but other than that. You know they kind of let me do what I wanted I. I did their stuff and then they. They made the picks. Yeah. Great stuff in there. Just just a bit outside was a natural man. I mean you know. I'm doing a radio game. You're looking at a movie, but you know when you're on Radio Dan.

He spilled beer on his scorecard one night when I was listening to him and Marty Brennaman, and it was just so funny because we don't. We're listening on the radio and Joe Spills it. He's not. He's not describing what he just did. And you just hear him. He's mad. Marty Brennaman trying to call the game, and then they eventually got around to Joe had spilled his beer on his scorecard there.

The Sporting Life with Jeremy Schaap

Adam McCalvy, MLB.com Brewers Writer

"This is the sporting life on. Espn radio and the ESPN APP. Here's Jeremy Shop. The Milwaukee brewers would be celebrating now. They're fifty first season in Milwaukee. Of course we don't know when baseball is coming back. But the brewers are the subject of new book by Adam Mckelvey who's been covering them for. Mlb DOT COM for decades. He is a native of the Milwaukee area and his new book is the Milwaukee Brewers at fifty celebrating a half century of brewers baseball Adam. Thanks so much for being with us. Of course thank you for having me off so I gotta say I'm doing this with all due respect but I was looking at some of the numbers right. I mean the brewers I think over there fifty seasons in Milwaukee have a winning percentage of about forty eight percent which I think might be actually a little bit better than I would have guessed. And they've played a total in fifty seasons. If my math is right again I think of thirty postseason games. And they've won pennant no world series of course at Nineteen Eighty-two pennant lost in seven games to the cardinals and Keith Hernandez and that whole story was Bob Maclaurin who gave up the head to Hernandez in the in the big game in my right. That's right no rollie fingers haunts till this day right so so when you said about a project like this Your how do you do it when there? Aren't you know twenty seven world championships like a team that place in the Bronx for instance? Yeah we'll look. There still are a lot of beloved characters in the story of this franchise and I. I think that's what I tried to do. As much as possible instead of just recounting the history. I think people especially the many of the people who buy this book. No the basic history of the team the playoff years and eighty one. Eighty two and then Resurgence in two thousand eight. Two thousand eleven with the Prince Fielder Ryan Braun teams and then more recently led by Christian. Yelich you know. The basics are known but but to try as much as possible in a book like this To get into some of the characters that tell the story of this team and I think there are some unique things about this franchise and it it starts with the founding you know how many franchises can say that. They existed as an idea for seven days about seven days before they played their first game. But that's the amount of time between a bankruptcy judge in Seattle determining that the pilots after one year there could be sold to a group led by bud seal again Milwaukee Between that decision being made and the very first game the opening day at County stadium that was the night of March thirty first. Nineteen seventy two the afternoon of April. Seven nineteen seventy I. I just think that's kind of a remarkable starts and a fitting start for a team that then throughout the years and said you know some really interesting characters from George Scott and Gorman Thomas and more recently Ben Sheets Niger Morgan Just on some big time personality. So look you're right. They have won one. Tenant they are still chasing that world series and There's a parade there. There is a parade to tell a about. We can talk about that losing world series parade. But there's not a championship to tell the story of And I you know I I it. There still are stories to tell them. That's what I try to bite into. We're speaking with Adam. Mckelvey about his new book. Milwaukee brewers at fifty celebrating a half century of brewers baseball. And you know I mean you know it's easy for somebody coming from New York. You know where they've got twenty seven champions ships with Yankees and before that the giants and In the dodgers and the mets well it's been. It's been a long track for the mets too. But we'll we'll talk about that another time. But you know people forget when you talk about Milwaukee Baseball outside Milwaukee forget that there were some incredible teams there in the fifties and early sixties. How long were the days? What what was it? Fourteen years something like that. Yeah never had a losing season. led the major leagues and attendance on a number of occasions. I nationally franchise to draw two million fans. It was a town that fell in love with baseball. Aaron and Mathews and spawned debt. I mean It was a they had those great teams and they beat the Yankees. And what was it? The fifty seven world series right and then they decamped for Atlanta. What did it mean to Milwaukee to get baseball back in one thousand nine hundred seventy of course it meant the Seattle lost the team that had had for one year as you already said it was the that the city was big league again And you know it came at a time that her Cole had also brought the NBA to Milwaukee Just a year before and it was a big boost for town. That was really heartbroken when the braves left you know in in in reading about that I always known the braves left town. I never exactly need the history of that. How a team that has been so successful at the gate and on the field and as you said had so many hall of famers suddenly decamped and I learned through this research that one of the reasons Milwaukee lock the braves was they made a policy against carrying beer and people were so horrified of the notion of having to buy their beer at the ballpark. Let's do some really hard feelings. I'm sorry Adam only in Milwaukee I mean that's that's that is a great story you know. Can you picture wheeling? You're into the ballpark for for a long now. Look it's more complicated than that and I don't mean to oversimplify but that was certainly one factor and really before the brave even the camp but she was already trying to gather civic leaders. You know he's around thirty years old at the time To try to I save the braves. When that effort failed he turned his sights to bringing in almost immediately and other expansion team and you know he had so much heartache in close calls over and over there was American league expansion during that period between sixty five and seventy there was naturally expansion. You tell them watching Walter. O'malley announced the winner in mouth of a word that began with 'em and his heart lifted and of the word was Montreal. Feel heart was broken again He had a deal to buy the Chicago. White Sox from one of the Allen Brothers The other brother Nix. That deal hurt was broken again. So the way bud ceiling tiles that this idea of bringing the Seattle pilots as you said lasted only one year for attendance The ownership a at least one member of the ownership was willing to part with the team. It was as buddy tells it the very last chance and had that effort failed There may not be bigly baseball in Milwaukee today and a whole generation of fans including me would you know either becomes fans are twins fans or maybe just focused on the Green Bay packers. So it's a story of a close calls and sort of how I use. This history can hang on such a thin line and impact so many people in in the decades that followed Th that is sort of a story of this franchises. Though we're speaking with data Mckelvey is new book. Is Milwaukee brewers at fifty celebrating a half century of brewers baseball? And you got a foreword by Robin Yount a Hall of Famer. Shortstop center fielder off the top of my head Robin Yates easily. The greatest player in franchise history right usually yes easily. Easily Was He was? He full-time playing shortstop when he was eighteen. For the brewers yeah and again a story of right place right time. I think about that in my career sometimes. And how many of us have you know are where we are because of Sort of vet that idea just being ready when opportunity strikes you But feeling tells the story of a real battle within their front office in. Nineteen seventy three When the Bruce had the third overall pick and The GM wanted a pitcher from New York Scouting director really liked the shortstop from Woodland Hills. California and they battled in battled and battled and it was ultimately the scouting directors. Call Jim bomber. Who himself was who made it to the big leagues at age eighteen. He got to Select Robin. Yount in the following spring. And you're talking about nineteen seventy four. The brewers are still basically an expansion team. They've had very little success on the field and they get to spring training. Imagine was del Crandall speaking of the Great Milwaukee braves he was one of the core players of that team and He decided you know why. Not Give it a shot to the kid And Robin Yount had impressed At times in that Spring and they made the decision sort of near the camp that that's just give it to. Let's give him a shot in the Big Leagues. And you know really. It's it took years for robbing out to become the hall of Famer that he eventually became. It was really a four really. Disappointing seasons You set a club record as a rookie. That probably won't ever be broken for Arizona season at shortstop And really just you know didn't perform the bat until about nineteen seventy eight. So you know would it? Sometimes I think back when you look at players today in the social media age where everybody wants you know Mike Trout from the second he steps foot major league deal with how many hours four years of real struggling what would what would he look. What would his career look like in today's game? Would it be different? Would they have the patience to stick with an eventual hall of Famer? Sort of an impossible question to answer but one of the you know one of the best things for robbing out was that he was able to learn on the job. The next year the bruised brought back Henry an to Milwaukee he was a fantastic mentor for robbing out and Frank Robinson was also a great mentor on the Robin McDonald played. Winter Ball Frank Robinson and Robinson took to this kid was you know the sort of cool calm southern California. I Robinson really liked him and they'd have a couple of cocktails at the bar. Each night and Robin. Yount says that was a phenomenal influence on his career as well and and he blossoms into nearly the face of this franchise may you know. Maybe it's Bobby euchre seen. Maybe you can make the case for that abroad after the face of the team but For if you're talking about player there's no doubt that Robin young man who defines this sort of Understated blue-collar Loyal sort of town He was the player. That he's the face of this franchise. And I was just GonNa get to Bob Euchre before we go again. We're speaking with Adam. Mckelvey FROM MLB DOT COM. Who's been covering the BREWERS FOR MLB for twenty years? Nearly and that's forty percent of the history of the franchise. Tell me Bob Euchre story and then we'll let you go. Well his deadpan gets you you know my favorite personal bobby. You could story. There was a year one of the early years. I was covering the team where they weren't very good as you said for some of those years and in the two thousands and they agreed to let sports illustrated follow the team for like a road trip and it turns into this nightmarish road trip. They lost every game. I've injuries whatever could go wrong. Went wrong but when the piece comes out in sports illustrated there's this fantastic photo of the guys playing Ping Pong cool in in Miami In in the background is Euch in a very very stylish black speedo and this thing is published in the magazine and he picks them ribbon for it and I think it was like the next spring. Were just talking about an totally casually in conversation. This comes up and he goes. Oh Yeah my sports so strange Simpson issue for some reason that line just like stuck in my head forever and it and it's those types of little things that you will drop on you and you know you not even expecting you to laugh and then you spend the next hour laughing about that. He said I've said many times. You know it's a it's a it's a it's a joy to cover the T. When your team that that you follow makes it to the postseason Look Your Nas. Stick about covering this team doing the job as a journalist. But it's it's you know when the teams good it's it's a good thing you know you get to cover huge games deep into a lot of fun. I've always said my team could win the next ten world series or the you know I could cover the next ten world series of nothing will be as a thrill as just standing around the batting cage with Bobby. You could do this little job. Make you laugh. is a total joy to be around and You know I hope he gets there for a long time. This was supposed to be fiftieth season. on the Mike for the Milwaukee brewers his hometown team. Not exactly the way he envisioned Season number fifty going. But hopefully we get some baseball for before this yoga. That would be nice. Adema cavities new book. The Milwaukee brewers at fifty celebrating half-century. A brewers baseball Adam.

This is Dan Patrick. Well, we did it well, yeah, we all did it. I did it more than everybody else, but we all did it. Yeah, breaking news. Let's not make this about us. It's about you, the listener and the viewer. We won the Marconi award the highest award you could win in this business. So second time we've been able to win it and humbled by it, and congratulations to all involve, particularly those behind the scenes who do this every single day and do it unselfishly. And of course, the danettes is well. So wonderful night last night, watching football, all of a sudden I get taxed and says you one. And then I realized that I didn't show up again for this award. And this started a couple years ago. Now this is the national association of broadcasters and the Marconi award is the highest award you can win. And I didn't think I was going to win, but you know, it's great to be nominated whenever I show up. I don't win, no matter what it is. I don't win. And at the time we were tied on our budget. And they didn't want me to take a couple of days off, so I didn't go and then we won. So what was that six years ago? Yeah, thought there and then got nominated to other times didn't win and then got nominated this year again. And I said to paulie, do we have a backup plan? If I, if I win, I just don't want him to think. I don't care because I probably care more than I need to and I should. And I said, you know, we need somebody to accept the award. And I mentioned that maybe one of my students in Orlando where where where this was held, the awards ceremony, the damn Patrick school sportscasting may be one of those guys could throw on us, you know, tie and Glover there and accept it. So paulie goes, I got an idea. Yeah, polling. So at the NBA awards down in Orlando, they have like performers, radio performers, guys who have women have very hits Nick fraud as a friend of the show, and he won American idol about five years ago. He was down there performing. So we reached out the Friday Onny and said, hey, if we win, would you run up stage and accept the award? Now we were trying. To clear this with the people at the NABC Marconi awards. Never got a hold of him. So I gave we gave Nick the green light to run up on stage hoping he wouldn't get tackled by security and he went up there for us and he, we don't have the results of the speech, but the American idol winner picked up throw force. And today's is friends with Nick Friday. High school? Yeah. And he reached out to him and said, look, if you go up there, here's a couple of things to say. I don't know what he said, but you know, we're waiting to maybe hear from Nick. Yes. The I team has learned that we have not been able to reach Friday on because he was out celebrating with our award all night. That's sorta premier radio parties. Those more Marconi parties, famous crazy. Yeah, crazy Vanity. Fair party. Yeah, I get it. It's the same. Like just like the and you know the Oscars, just a radio version of that. All right. Well, it was great night and certainly reflective of all the great work here that we've done over the years and certainly the other guys on, you know, the danettes as well. L. so my thanks and basically Brian secret. Oh, no. Now I'm just that your speech that would have been my speed you think today on LA radio, he's lamenting is another Marconi loss? No, because he's such a nice guy. You can't help, but like Ryan Seacrest even if you don't want to like him when you're around him and I was around him when I was at the Olympics, you can't help it like, and I don't think he's lamenting last. I looked Seacrest doing well. It's still very, very well very well. Yes taught Now Sean Hannity. Delilah demanded a recount that's not very good spor. No, it's not. It's not. I think Hannity was involved in some other things last night. Yeah, the other things to worry about then the Marconi awards. Yes, paulie, I wonder though Seacrest rich guy. He probably has a lot of mantles in his house. Yes, we'd probably numerous mantles. He's got room. He's got a lot of awards. I'll bet if he wants the Marconi you'll own it. Yes, I would. If it'll help him with his status with the Kardashians or whatever he needs. I'd be more than happy to help him. All right. Eight, seven, seven, three DP show Email address DP Dan, Patrick dot com. And to meet Friday. We also got a great guest list here. Bob euchre is gonna join us the legendary broadcaster. If you don't remember how big Euch was, you know if you Google Bob euchre just to he was his famous as John Madden. He had his own sitcom. He would be on Johnny Carson's show all the time just telling jokes, he wasn't. It wasn't a good baseball player, but he was great at telling you how bad he was baseball player and a comedian. Miller lite commercials of major league and UK has been broadcasting brewers games. I think for forty eight years, the brewers have made the playoffs five times. So he'll join us coming up a little bit later on, Greg Olsen Carolina Panthers tight end is the on the injured list right now. But we'll talk about the Panthers Panthers signing Eric Reed, and he had the collusion case along with Colin Kaepernick, but Panthers under new ownership went out and got Eric Reed who should be employed, Eric Reid's should. Employed before calling Kabir, Nick doesn't mean capper. Nick shouldn't have a job at Eric Reed should be starting in the NFL. He's twenty six. He's a very good player. Trent Dilfer will join us former NFL quarterback NFL network analyst and just where we are in the quarterbacking situation here with college with these kids. Now, in how entrenched part of this to getting these kids ready to play in college and you're seeing this now where if your junior senior in college, your job is tenuous because you get these kids coming in as a five star freshman, you had this Clemson, we've had this, you know, at Ohio State, and it's it feels like this is the new wave where you're bringing in these kids as freshman, and you know you're going to be transferring when your junior senior to play, maybe one more year. We'll talk to Trent Dilfer about that. Also, I want Trent to tell us what he seeing in Jared Goff now that we haven't seen before. So Trent does a great job in breaking down. Quarterback, so he'll join us coming up a little bit later on your phone calls are always welcome will come up with a poll question. Got a stat of the day. We say good morning to our radio partners. Thank you for all your support through the years. And I truly mean that today, especially today and hopefully you celebrate this more Coney award with us direct TV audience network channel, two, thirty nine. All of the great people do this every single morning. Thank you very much in the NBC sports network who has been very loyal partner of ours for years. Now, you never know when a team's going to take that jump from being very good to being great to being a Super Bowl team. We're four weeks into the season, and I know we tend to overreact, but the Rams certainly look like they're ready to take that leap. Now I still have questions about the defense and I'm sure the Rams still have questioned about the defense, but that offense were seeing maybe the reincarnation of the greatest show on turf and it just happens to be the Rams last night. Jared Goff showed everyone that maybe he's taken that. Next step, and I've talked about this with quarterbacks. You had the initial wave of success defenses then get a book on you, and then all of a sudden, what do you do after that? Jared Goff came in and did not have success in fact, whispers of being a bust. And then all of a sudden Sean McVay comes you and he can be the quarterback whisper. I don't care if he's in his head in his helmet saying whatever he's saying, Jared Goff is executing the game plan. And last year we saw progress. And then all of a sudden we looked at and said, maybe maybe he is better than Carson Wentz. Maybe he will be better than Carson Wentz maybe it's not, you know, Jared goff's going to be a bust. It's different now. Now he's got weapons there, but he is a legitimate star with what we saw last night. The ability to throw guys open is really important with quarterbacks when you take the next step. Because if a guy's open you hit him. But when you throw a guy open, that's different. You got girly. I think Robert woods is more one of the more underway. Aided players in the game. Brandin cooks, you got Cooper Cup, the defenses banged up a little bit, but that Rams offense looked so potent last night that it might not matter. They didn't get off to a heart hot start member when the Rams got to Los Angeles, they were boring. They didn't win, but even worse in Los Angeles, she can't be boring. They finally got rid of Jeff Fisher and Sean McVay comes in. And now you have l. as most exciting team most entertaining team not most entertaining football team most exciting team, and that is key when you win and you're exciting. When you win, you got star power. There they look great, the uniforms look great. It was a nice coming out party Thursday night FOX in town with Troy and Joe buck and they put on a show last night. Yes, mclovin. So you're saying if I offer the Los Angelinos tickets to the Lakers and tickets to the Rams, they're going to the Rams. No, yeah. I know it's still Lakers down, but that doesn't mean that they're not the most entertaining team dodgers do. It's still, yeah, dodgers down as well. But with the Rams of the most entertaining team right now, because there is the possibility that they're the best team. The Lakers aren't the best team. The dodgers aren't the best team dodgers disgracing scrap and try to make it into the playoffs. The Lakers may be a seven or eight seed this year, but the Rams the lamb Rams are legit. They are the mclovin club. Remember we were talking about moving up the hours of the Lakers games and you said the traffic would be a problem. People could not get to that game last night on Twitter at kept seeing like that was kind of empty at the beginning. That's a real issue. Well, five, twenty local start, but you have to do that for Thursday, Thursday night football. So can you really move up NBA considering that? Well, we wondered about that with the Lakers that you're, you know, we got treat. LeBron all of those games playing in Cleveland and Miami. You got to see him on the west coast. You would get to see him east coast. We got to see all those games. You started seven, seven thirty. Now you're going to be playing at ten ten thirty east coast time. You're going to be getting highlights the LeBron midwest and east coast probably west coast. You get the game, obviously. But I wonder if the NBA looks at this and says, can we get LeBron maybe earlier, can you? Can you do like a nine o'clock start? Can you? Can you do something that where the east coast is going to be able to enjoy LeBron James? Because that's the team everybody is talking about, yes, he LeBron flex schedule. Yes. Yes. Just him specifically wherever he's playing like, oh, no, you can bump up. Just absolute Bron what time he wants to play? Yeah, fritzy. Then you've got fans with tickets having to leave work like three, three thirty in the afternoon. Have any shot of getting their opening. Typically take sepulveda's Dan, you gotta take. Go left Fritz. He'll tell you how to get there back roads there, the harbor freeway, the one ten you'll get once. Got a sandwich at that deli fifteen years ago. Yes. Mclovin. I was gonna say, if you take last Yannikas story, different joke yesterday, like, oh gosh, it always comes down to sepulveda's Lousiana. And they're just a few of those exits that you're always talking about the sepulveda's pass. Yep. Oh, Dan, you haven't done that many times when when we all leave a whole of the hotel or the airport with fritzy, you see that Chinese food. I know I went there three times in one thousand nine hundred palace and play. I know we we, we drove by there. We were gonna go meet some friends and and fritzy takes pictures. He took a picture of the session one pallet. I ordered from there so much that one time I forgot one thing and the guys did back to me on the phone is that no dumplings. Embarrassing dumplings this places on a drastic hill. It's at the bottom of the hill lived about hundred and fifty yards up the hill. He could see it, but he still made the guy delivered to his house and walk up the hill. I've got things to do. I'm, you know, I'm in my actually. I don't wear my underwear, but I'm in my torn Elway journal. Write to go wandering around. Let them bring it. The Dan Patrick show brought to you by truecar car. Shopping can be confusing terms like dealer price, list price and invoice truecar shows you what other people paid for the car you want. So you recognize a good price when you're ready to buy new or used car, visit truecar and enjoy more confident car buying experience one hour until we have the second annual quarterback draft two years ago this week, fritzy shocked the NFL world with is number one, overall, pick number one. Pick in the Dan Patrick show draft. I am impressed with what I've seen the last two weeks, especially last night. Carson wins. He was very Peyton Manning with the way he was communicating and controlling the offense. And we. Okay. Now you get the quarterback for five years that that that's, you know, pretty much the parameters of this. You start right now with this quarterback who is going to be the number one overall, pick this year? Just fritzy change it up and go, Jared, Goff fritzy we'll have the number one pick. He's earned the right after being mocked. Two years ago is what have you done for me lately could get a little interesting. I know, I know. And that's what you did with Carson Wentz. He'd only played two games and you jumped right in head first? Yes. Mclovin. So this would been totally different if we'd had it on Wednesday. I think. Different after one which I said yesterday, that's ridiculous that we're so short term. We could have held this yesterday day of the game prior to the game, and I think it would have been different. I don't think fritzy I don't think Jared Goff would have been one of the top five quarterback stake last night's performance was a game to ya. Yes, it was. Yeah, Paul, Two years ago in our draft, Aaron Rodgers went fourth overall. Fourth, who were the two? Well, he was thirty two at the time, right? And you got him for five years, right? But you'd think he'd go even higher, you think he might be a one guy now who are the two quarterbacks other than Carson Wentz that went above Aaron Rodgers and our draft mclovin and you took them two years ago this week that I take Russell Wilson junior. The third did one spot before Aaron Rodgers. Okay. And the two spot Pearl off to Cam Newton. Okay. Those guys might be up there again this year too? Yeah, at their age. I get him for the next five years. So that's coming up in an hour. We're going to have our second annual quarterback draft and some interesting picks Cody Kessler went last year or two years ago. River Simeon led off the third round. Yeah. Fritzy when Trevor siemian. Yes. So the two years ago, Jared Goff went last in the fourth round. I'm gonna guess he's moved up considering ESI has Jameis Winston second round pick where was Marcus mariota. See, I took him in the end of round three Luca. It was a value pick value. Pick fits magic at and you're the no. And you're the no. My God save. Maybe if it was for the next five games, not the next five years. I, we'll take a break. Trent Dilfer will join us coming up. Things talked to him about including Jared, goff's performance last night. Why this big turnaround, which aired Goff aside from you have some weapons there. You got an offensive line, which is really the key, I think, but Gough given time and he looked awesome last night. All right, seventeen. After the hour, this is the award-winning Dan Patrick show.

So really cool thing from our friends at Callaway Sunday night AFC north rivals clash in the steel city. It's the Steelers and the ravens football night in America. Seven eastern kickoff, twenty Sunday night only on NBC. All right. Mclovin. What do you have or waiting for Trent Dilfer who will join us coming up? Okay. Can I start totally out of left field and then we'll get to some real ones Bob euchre's on in our three who is the most iconic baseball announcer of your lifetime. And I have a list from Bleacher report that has you at sixteen. Eighteen and decided to say something names ahead of a Marty Brennaman, Jack buck, Phil, Rizzuto, Harry Carey, Harry callous. Ernie Harwell in Scotland and VIN scully's number one on this list, the list is actually Scully one, Harry callous to and then Mel Allen is up there, but is Bob Yuka right in that list of the most iconic voices a baseball? No, I don't think he's an iconic voice because the brewers weren't very good. So you didn't hear his voice. He is a celebrity and his his best play by play, or is most known play-by-play came in the movie major league, but he was in has been a celebrity for a long long time. So I don't think you think of Bob euchre as a baseball announcer, even though he's a great baseball announcer, you think of been scholar, you think baseball announcer Mel Allen baseball now, sir, who's the most iconic of that group has been Scully and has been, or is Harry Carey sneak in because of the office of l. that he's a character. I don't either. He wasn't a great broadcaster. You know, later in his life earlier in his life. He was Jack brickhouse. I mean, there's so many great ones. Marty Brennaman so hall. Of Famer. Phil Rizzuto was a character. Yes. Yeah. Let's to say how how much of this is just based on where you grew up because as soon as you say, baseball announcer, the first person that comes to mind for me is Phil Rizzuto, but I don't know that he would ever make that list, but that's growing up as a child and learning the game. That's who I remember always hearing he's fourteen on this list. So he did make some though. It did. Yeah, yeah, polling. I would go Jek book from the scope of how the reach of the cardinals back in the day on KOMO Molex their cardinal fans all over the central United States, not just in Saint Louis. You can go to Arkansas all over the place and you even as a cub fan, I was respected Jack buck. Will you had Saint Louis? You could pick up Campbell lex wwl w with the reds with Marty Brennan at night, you could pick up a lot of these radio broadcasts. And I think that that that's where you had this expansion where you became a cardinal fan and you could have grown up in Tennessee or Braves, you know, when they had Ted Turner, when he created TBS your. Able to watch your your favorite team, you didn't have to be in that city? Yes. Mclovin. One thing that changed things was you with sportscenter. You would highlight Harry Kallis calls calendar. I was so proud is a Philadelphia in to hear you say that. So we got to know a little bit of the different voices through sportscenter. All right. We'll talk to Trento for join us coming up a poll question. Mclovin Woody hub. We get to Trent. Okay. We have Rams versus the field, and we have a Marconi related one that I can save, but we could start there who do you take Rams or the rest of the NFC as a favorite. So if you're four weeks after four days, look like who's going to get home field over them. So someone's going to have to go to l. a. and win in the playoffs. Also to factor in Garoppolo being out for the rest of the season, what that means for San Francisco, they were supposed to be an aide. Maybe nine win to in Seattle might not be as good as advertised in Arizona is not that good. The Rams could end up with thirteen or fourteen wins the way there. The they're built, certainly the offense defense like, I got questions, but you got a lot of time to figure that out. Trent Dilfer former NFL quarterback ESPN analyst in of Super Bowl champ with the ravens kind enough to join us Trent. Good morning. Thanks for joining us. How are you. I'm doing great. Dan yourself, I'm doing all right. I don't know how impressed I should be with the Rams. I know that we do overreact, but I'm curious as a former quarterback who played at a high level and you look at Jared Goff. What is the difference now with Gough as opposed to two years ago or even last year. Well, I think it's any time you're that perfect blend of talented, quarterback rape, play, caller skill, people around you. You know a lot lot of pieces around you. You're going to see this progression of a quarterback and the confidence come out. I think that's the biggest thing is total command, you know, soul coughing. So what he's doing, he's a very, very gifted player. It really bothers me when I hear people say just system guy like they minimizes talent. He's a peer. Pure passer has been since he was seventeen years old. I got to coach villa leave, eleven. I is tremendous feel for the passing game is playing of arm talent. You can threaten all areas of the field. He can throw it all. You can throw guys open. He can layer versus. I mean, he's really nothing he can't do with the football. I think it cow. He didn't have the total command of the position because of protection schemes. And now McVeigh and the protection plans they have in place and all the tools. They give him at the line of scrim. Image. He can play the game on his terms. He can get through the plays that he wants to get to. He can get himself protected. They have a great running game, obviously. And I, I think what you're seeing is is the fullness of a guy when you put the right pieces around them. I've, I've been really impressed like everybody else has this year, but I was impressed last year for a second year guy that had a rough rookie year to build to grow in the physician and win a bunch of games and be highly productive. That's what you're looking for in your quarterback. What would be your big concern with the Rams. Defense, probably. I mean, they're loaded personnel wise, but they play this that this has always been waged deal that he plays his style, a defense that when a team can attack the inside of the football field when they can get you when they can get a skill players mashed up on linebackers when they can get big plays against them, that that defensive scheme has a ten tendency to get gashed. But I don't, you know, they're gonna be playing from the lead. So with the lead so much. And like you just mentioned before I came on their division is so poor. I don't have a whole lot of concerns for them in the regular season. They don't come down to playoff football, and if they're built for playoff football healthy, they are at the end of the year and whether they can. You know, I think one thing you see the Rams is yes, they will run the ball and girly gets a lot of touches, but they definitely wanna throw it down the field like what they want to do more than anything else is great chunk plays in the passing game. I think when you get into playoff football. Ball, and if you have to go on the road and place them where bad weather, you gotta be stubborn with your running back. And are they willing to be stubborn with getting girly the ball and situations when they normally wanna throw it? How concerned would you be if you're a Vikings fan today? I'd be concerned, but I'm definitely not an early season panic guy anymore. The one thing I learned the last four or five years is September is still the preseason. You can. You can lose it in September, but you can't win it. I don't think they've lost it yet. Yeah. Yeah, they're, they're behind the eight ball little bit with last night's loss, but teams are still learning in September. Now with the limited off season practice with as little as starters playing the preseason. We see this every year and I've made the mistake of knee jerk, reaction and September. You really can't. Teams are just starting to figure out who they are. I think are Tober is more telling than September, but I would not panic as Viking fan. They're well coached. There are lots of good players. They've been there done that. I think they'll correct things have gotten in trouble this point. I think they'll be a contender by the end. Nine. Oh, that you've learned your lesson. You said over the last couple years, which leads me to the patriots, the patriots after a one, and to start at the patriots. Loose of the dolphins dot dot, dot, finish that sentence. I'd be very concerned, but I would write them off. They don't look the same, but they are getting that open back. They will grow offense. Ably I can see them trying to run the ball or bit more bothered me. The other night was not Bill to convert on third and short. You know, they're one of the better third short teams the league in the past. I think they'll fix those things with coach scar Nekia their offense and wind coach. Again, they're the team. You can never write off because they're all about development. They're all about how they are weak, nine more than what they are week, two, three, four. So their history alone would be would make me say, I would still give him a very long leash even if they're to lose the dolphins talking to Trent Dilfer former NFL quarterback also contributes to the NFL networks, Thursday night pre-game show with the Soling science segments. If I said you can have a quarterback for the next five years. We have a draft coming up next hour. And you could you could you could pick any quarterback and you get him at his current age, but you're getting for the next five years. You have the number one overall pick and you would take our, oh, well, hardest questions right now. I just doing this with Ryan russillo the other day I probably go with went and that's hard. I mean, there's there's seven, eight, good options, but I'd probably go with went. Would you take Aaron Rodgers at age, thirty four if you had him for the next five years. Probably not. And that was the one that probably not. This is the age. I mean, he's obviously one of the greatest of all time. He does things that you know literally make your drought, John drop every time you watch him play. But I again, there's this is one of the hardest questions at all football right now. And there's really no wrong answer between seven eight, nine guys, but I would probably go Carson one. Explain what you're doing with the NFL NFL players association the exclusive trading card partner there. What's the contest out? Yeah, maybe America I've been doing this for four years dance, really cool they every year they do Super Bowl, kid reporter initiative. So kids go out and buy their trading cards over the country. Some of the cards have a coat on the back. You enter that code. If you win, you get to go to the Super Bowl media night with me. I coach him up on that. Ask questions that go around to the boost. They get front of line and get to ask these players really cool questions. It's been. It's been a thrill for me to watch the joy in these kids spaces that they've been able to do it. But the surprising thing that's come out of it. It is you've been the media night a million times. These players are kind of done with it. You know what I mean? There's two hundred people at their booth. There's all these weird questions, but when they see the kid, they lied up. They love engaging with the kid. The kid ask some great questions. The player loves the kid loves it. It's been one of the coolest things I've been able to do in my post career with any America, and I just love the initiative and I love doing it every year. You can go to Panini kid reporter dot com for more details only view with this Trent because I know you're involved in these seven on seven and eleven on eleven and all these camps there. And these kids coming out of high school going into college. They're ready to play right away in these five star recruits. We just saw this with Clemson where you got Trevor Lawrence who's coming in and Kelly Bryant who's been, you know, a decorated starter at Clemson as a senior. You know, he, he's transferring. Now the, I guess the ability for these kids. Comprehend what they need to learn in college at that early of an age. And now we're looking at juniors and seniors where you might be expendable at that position, DEA sea. This is a new wave where the five stars are coming in and for two years or three years maybe. And then after that, you got another five star coming in and he might be expendable. Yes, I do think it's going to be a trend. Quarterbacks are just getting better every year. Think of it this way globally that this is the really kids now, it's been the first time in the history of football. Were these kids when they were eight, nine, ten years old could find as much quarterback information as you could possibly ever want out there between private quarterback coaches watching Amazon prime, Tom Brady, or Jared Goff in the Rams or everything we do at the Lille Levin will your eight, nine, ten, eleven years old. You have access to every bit of quarterback information you could ever possibly want. Then you're throwing a football, you're playing in seven on seven, you're playing in the fall, you're being trained privately. You're you're, you're learning curve has been excel A-Rated so much. Well, now you add all the talent. Now you're adding also the biggest strong toughest kid. Now playing court. Most athletic kids playing quarterback. It's kind of. The perfect storm where every year we go around the country and we evaluate about seven hundred fifty, two thousand quarterbacks, and we see now we call it the eleven, we do twenty four guys goes to twelve, but we see fifty guys every year fifty to seventy five guys that are so much better than I ever or that Tony Romo will ever was or 'cause we have all these quarterbacks come out and join us on the tour and they go, are you kidding me? These kids are so much better than I was. And these are pro guys that play twelve fifteen years the NFL. So you're just seeing waves of quarterbacks in high school. I live in Texas. Now I go to high school football games on Friday night and every week I go to game and I see a quarterback that was better than me. I mean, it's crazy how many good quarterbacks are. So you're gonna see every year. These colleges get somebody that has a chance to be really, really good. But who is playing now that you saw in highschool where you went, these got star written all over him or I'm surprised that he's got. Starving all over. Oh gosh, I can go down. I mean, eighty five percent of the power. Five quarterbacks are lead. Eleven guys twenty to the NFL early, eleven guys. I mean I remember seeing Sam darnold play high school basketball. That's how we found them high school basketball tape because he broke his ankle is junior year. We had him out of the camp and he might have thrown thirty balls and I looked over my personal assistant. I looked at Jordan Palmer. I said that kid's gonna plan the NFL. I mean, we see that Trevor Lawrence first time we saw him when he was a freshman high school where like that kid's gonna play in the NFL. Justin feels the first time we saw him back is gonna play in the NFL, Josh Rosen, oh gosh, Josh Rosen. When we saw him as a tenth grader, that kid's gonna play in the NFL. I mean, we see these kids at tenth eleventh grade and sometimes you just know. I mean, there's this no doubt be one. They're going to go to a great high, get coached well played, good people. They're going to be highly recruited. They're going to go to good place in college. You now have a long leash, meaning they're gonna give it. They're going to be given a chance. Chance to fail learn from their failure come back to succeed. I I would say are hit rates really, really high just because we get to see them relative all the other quarterbacks in the country. But is there going to be room for all these quarterbacks in the NFL. That's that's a great. This is going to be the most interesting draft. You can start this conversation right now because you have Herbert lock, Steadham Greer McSorley, who am I forgetting forgetting somebody all these kids are big time NFL quarterback cows, but there's no place for them to go and this year's drought. So to stem stay in school is Herbert stay in school because if it's lock and mcsorely and Greer coming out only is there is a room for more than three old Finley at North Carolina State. I mean, there's a lot of guys are really, really talented and they're just may not be enough seats for them to play in the NFL and all the good thing is some of them may get drafted later than they should. You know, two years ago, you might have been a top six pick. Now you're going mid to late first round. You get through to sit for a couple of years. I still think that's the best formula. If you're able to sit for a little while and watch and learn like Patrick Mahomes. So there's gonna be situations like that too. I'll say this if you're. Doc Prescott and Dallas better start playing better, start playing better. There's a lot of guy better start playing better because there's guys coming up that can take their jobs in a heartbeat, just like you're seeing in college football. Great, too busy with you.

Yes, bowling, Dan, you remember Trent Dilfer we just had him on, yeah, for NFL quarterback ESPN NFL network about four years ago. He dropped this white hot truth. You cannot lose games in the NFL and still win. Find anyone who's going to argue with that. That's true. It's absolutely true. Yeah, you know what? He doubled down in the last segment. He dropped this. You can lose it in September, but you can't win it and I checked. You cannot win the Super Bowl in September. It's only played in January or February is never been played September right season as that's what my research shows. Okay. Cannot win it in September. Okay. Ever. You can lose it in September, but you can't win it right. If tried to move it up and it interferes with baseball's pennant races and it's getting ready for playoff, be too much on top of each other. Yes, actually, you actually take you can't lose the Super Bowl in September either. You could just lose your chance to get their to boom way in the strike shortened year. The one where that kicker for the rest are you really going to do this to Trento for trail? I thought it was a great appearance, patron Dilfer, but argue with try to argue with his, I'm not arguing with it. Nah games in the NFL and still went like, there's no way the Vikings can win that game last is because they already lost brutal. Brutal me. It's a meet Friday. We just won a big award, Tony Friday. If we didn't think he had a sense of humor, we wouldn't tea's like, do we know he has a sense hope that he does so he can come on to get at some point. Well, we're gonna find out. We will gonna find out his sense of humor. When you say Trent, would you like to? Oh, really? I'm sorry, you can't. You can't lose it into timber. You can't win it in September. Yes, mclovin if would probably on. He said that young quarterbacks have access a lot of YouTube and see the Tom Brady thing is that really good? Create like a like a great quarterback seeing and a video I. Oh, okay. I'm good areas how they're so good. I, what he's saying is that you have so much information. You have quarterback coaches, personal quarterback coaches, there's so much information. There's how to videos there. I, I'm not gonna take him to task with everything. He said here. Yes, there is no question that YouTube and things like that are an unbelie, invaluable resource of education for stuff like that. And whether it's your a kid playing youth sports, and you want to learn how to throw a football or your forty year old guy trying to figure out how to replace this light switch in your house is the very first thing I do is go to YouTube, watch a video or two on how to do something, and then I go do it in my house so there. But I feel like watching Tom Brady, all access is not gonna. Like that's one thing to actually do it on the field, but I could be absolutely wrong. Yes, I've watched those same videos that seed wise on, I still can't figure it out. You can't even use a broom have gotten most books for dummies. Fixing the light bulb for dummies and all that just can't get it whipped up. Did you guys realize that the long snapper for the Vikings. Lost the tip of his pinky. Last night Kevin, McDermott he, he, he got his finger sewed up, and he came back into the game. She got caught in the helmet in Los, his pinky. Last night, the the tip of his pinky. Last night. I, I'm assuming that affects you as a long snapper. If you missed the, you're missing the tip of your pinkie finger there. So they just cap it the so it together the best they can. I have no idea. I, I don't. I don't know what it looked like. I 'cause we always think Ronnie Lott when when Ryan, but they just chopped his finger off, didn't. They of the tip of Rani's finger off. They were going to the playoffs and Ronnie Lotte headed damage, almost crushed pinkie finger and they said it was exposed in the nerves and he would not be able to play with it even if they covered it. So he said, you know, take a little off the top income, but it's legendary for Ronnie. Yes, it is. This is gonna be the greatest long snapper story of all time if you. Yeah. Now we know who is, you know his name now he's famous, but if you're around offense, lineman or defensive linemen Mike, they got fingers that like our turn signals like they, they're just in directions where they shouldn't be in none of a match, and you're just looking at these mangled hands here. You're going out. David deal when he came in and he's got one of those, Anthony moon has one of those. I'm curious. Why would you would have your fingers exposed at all? Like is there a way to protect your hands where you know it's more collective and and you might not be able to grab, but I'm curious if you're not allowed to hold that if I have something protective for you, you can't have mitts, but I'm curious about that with some of these mangled hands. I mean, they're brutal. I, what's the poll question mclovin. Okay. We have one for in-house. What's better? Winningham are koneohe getting emanated misery, nominated. Hammond hated your eminence. Or I was going to say, we have quarterback draft coming out. Should we ask the audience who their number one pick is or if we give the options, is that giving away too much to our competitors in the room? No, that's fine. If you want to do that fell put five guys. So would I rather win the Marconi or be nominated for sports EMMY? Is that what you said? Yes. That's where we're at in two thousand eighteen. I'd rather win the Marconi award. You know, it's, it's, it's the highest we're radio show. I, it's the highest award that we can win, then I can win nominee for sports. EMMY is great. It'd be nice to win one, but and that would be great as a TV show. But we we started as a radio show and we're, we're true to that. That's my true love is doing a radio show the TV aspect of it. All it is is just cameras that let you see what goes on at a radio station or radio show. That's really what this is. We just let you behind the curtain or fritzy likes to say, we like to show you. How do you make the sausage we like to show your sauce? Yeah, it's show this so people. All right. It's the second annual quarterback draft. It's coming up in about ten minutes.

To TV where he started as weatherman who worked the sport thing on the side progressing through a series of bigger market jobs.

He's encountered and managed while pursuing a career that gives him constant energy and satisfaction. I would've done anything to be even a college athlete, but it would been silly for me to continue to pursue that. Because I knew wasn't gonna happen. I've read like it was yesterday where almost everybody in the class stood up pointing a neighbor shouting or saying all the stats all the players, even when he's sitting on the bed. She does play by play of arcane. And they're like he should be sports announcer. And it just kind of the light went off in my head. I was like while this episode is brought to you by ear.

Enjoy land talent. Lance, welcome to the show. Thank you very much. Thanks revenue. Yes. My pleasure. I before I get into the how it happened question. I just wanna let everybody know a couple of things I I was introduced to Lance through Nick Bauer who has been on the show before Nick is the managing director and founder of operas advisors and second this is the very first podcast that I am doing remotely so Lance is on the phone today. I've never done one on the phone before. I've always done them in person. Yeah. Yes. We are fighting. Thank you. I like that. We are pioneer. Nick is a really good friend kiddingly calling slick Nick, you know, at all that stuff at we've called together, we've known each other for a long time. So really guy really good business van. So it's an honor to be on with after him. And I'm with you. Okay. Well, let's let's get going and Lance wanted. I start every podcast the same way. And that's what a simple question. How did happen for you? I always say the Reader's Digest, I hard work in the ability or the thought that that no doesn't exist. I always tell people sometimes stubbornness at some crimes not taking. No for an answer is not a bad king. It basically the way it started for be was I was always interested in source at law, always loved sports. But I you even high school that I wasn't going to be a pro athlete. I wasn't gonna play in college. And I could barely get off the bench in high school. I like circus to say that you know, I was the the Bob euchre of high school sports, except he actually made the pros eat. He's actually funny even more money than me, you know. So I in high school freshman English clash, it it just it's still, you know, resonates to me to this day as we had a teacher that kind of gave us the what you wanna do the rest of your life. Speech. And of course, we're all impression English like fifteen sixteen years old were rolling are is going. Okay. Works dirty. Four letter word. You know, come on. We get the rest of our life to think about this. And it was almost like the twisted sister video for the people that are of a certain age. You know, what are you going to do with the rest of your life? Like come on, you know. And then she turned the question around on us and said, what would you like to do for the rest of your life? That would not seem like work, and I tell you I remember it like it was yesterday where almost everybody in the class stood up pointed at the they were shouting or saying he does all the stats knows all the players. He knows tons of stuff about sports, even when he's sitting on the bed. She does play by play of our games for the for the people that were on teams with e you know, they do that. I would sit there, and I would practically play by play during games, and they're like he should be sports announcer, and it just kind of the light went off in my head. I was like, wow. That's not a bad idea at all in I in that to go on and on the other thing, I always tell people is you know, you can have a plan. But kinda like sports because I'm sports minded, I tend to think that way if kinda like a coach tells you okay, if you have a plan yet, go with it. But would be Philly. If Jaanus was getting triple teamed and never passed it to his teammates same thing for you know, like, I I would have done anything to be a pro athlete, even a college athlete, but it would been silly for me to continue to pursue that. Because I knew it wasn't going to happen. But you can have a plan and be willing to adjust the plan. And that's what I tell a lot of younger people as you'll whether you want to call it plant, your whatever the second best thing or or the best thing for me to do was talk about sports because I knew I couldn't actively participate in sports. And if the same thing for people that go into the medical field or business or certain things if. Science. Okay. There are only a select few people that become doctors in this world. It's hard. It takes years of schooling. It takes a lot of money. You don't you take clinical trials exams, whatever. And if you can't do that. Or if that's not for your financial means think about all things in life that are now either science based or medical paste, or whatever and you can adjust the plan. It's still do something in life that you're happy with rather than just accept some job that you're never never going to be satisfied. Ing sureness rare, of course to at a young age. You know, exactly what you wanna do. And you get started on it. And it is what you imagined. It would be it's rare and since rare get into night. I mean, rare bird I like to. I'm I'm one of those people that people that remember being high school or college France, or whatever like, you were one of the most focused Trigon, whatever, you know. I don't want almost something comes off self-serving serving or or braggadocious. But I got a Di think this is the way I was wired. I just you was also when something clicked in my mind, even the like grew up in a small town, even though I get even know how to get into television. Even though there are a lot of obstacles. And hurdles in my way. Nobody was going to tell me that I could not do this. And I just worked and worked and worked and eventually got to the point where I was very happy with thanks to ask you a question in a way. That's no one's asked you before Spurs youth to the thinking about what you are good. Adding what you wanna do? Then your network of friends or whatever saying, yeah, that's perfect. That's perfect for land. So that's one thing. Right. And what did you actually do about it? That's a great follow up question. So basically, you know, you know, it's once again thing that I try to stress the younger people is it's one thing to have a dream. But nobody for the most part is gonna hand anything to you less your RIC stream Lee privileged. So what I am media Lee went to work on English, classes, and speech and things like that. I always tell people I mean, maybe some people think it's nerdy. And some people think it's crazy or whatever. But one of the things that helped me out the most was somebody mentioned forensics class than I thought. Okay. This is a little weird, but okay, whatever and they had a category that you would compete in cold four speech. While of anybody's watched encouragement TV scores gaps today on on a local basis, you get two minutes for some two and a half three three and a half somewhere in that range. And and I tell people all the time, and especially high schoolers that was an invaluable experience. Because basically, what format speech was was you had to. To present the topic. You had to present an argument for the topic, and you had to wrap it up at make total sense skull from ADA beat ac- to whatever in that time. If you went over you got penalized while it's the same thing television where you like commercial break to one at a certain time. They're only gonna give you so much time to do sports and you have to determine you kind of get the pallet. It's almost like being in artist you determine, okay, you know, the bucks playoff. That's today on Wednesday. That gets Joel this time today and brewers trying to sweep the cardinals huge story, but that's probably number two on the docket. And then the Packers and the NFL scheduled coming tonight early shows you mentioned that third but later on tonight that rises important so you have to try to balance all this stuff out. And it's almost like puzzle pieces in a in a pie. Tin to try to get all this stuff to fit in a certain amount of time. You have to be very judicious with. Your language you have to make sure that everything kind of fits and flows. That people understand what you're saying. But keep it kind of condensed listening. And it's sounds like itself directive, you're directing yourself cramped. Yes. So a lot of what I do daily basis is like today, for example, I anchor skorts, I'm almost my own reporter to gray. We have another reporter delete Bri who's going out and getting some Bob shoot around stuff is the practice stuff with the box and sometimes the pistons or sometimes the opponent and that you have to keep tabs on the brewers game. And cut highlights for that you have to watch and see if anything leaks out about the the Packer schedule ahead of time. And then it officially comes out at seven o'clock tonight. Yeah. And you kinda have to anchor report added a lot of your own Curiel, and you produce a lot of your own material. Whether it's you know scripts or whether you kind of just come up with an idea, you know, like a live shot situation tonight. Adviser form a you know, I'll have bullet points. We'll have ideas in my head. But I don't have like a true script, right? Like every single word. I think a lot of times host actual live shots are once where people have an idea where they wanna go, but they just taught to someone like it's talking to their friend and saying, hey, this is what's going on the bucks? Just hammered the pistons by thirty five points game one, you know. No, both the only thing that might stop them complacency or something crazy like what would happen with the warriors the other night where the you know, just don't play offense defense for awhile. I think the bucks are locked in and focused enough that I don't think that happens to them. But that's that's kinda the Ostra patients that that I go throughout a day-to-day basis. When you I read that in your bio or thing was in your bio that when you applied for the job at WTMJ. And I guess this happens in all the jobs, you sent a tape of some sort for them to see as part of the interview process, and you you're quoted as saying, hey, even if I don't get the job, I'm interested in in being critiqued on my tape. Can you talk? Yes. So I'd like you to talk a little bit about what that what what what you meant by that. And then also now that you've been, you know, you're the sports anchor. You're you're you're you know, you're at the top of your game. But how do you get feedback? Now. How do you take yourself now or or what kind of valuation? Do you get? So you first start. It's got a funny like I worked to go way back. You know, like I worked at my. I was lucky enough growing up in a in a small town rice lake Wisconsin, where I was on the radio when I was a junior at high school, which hardly ever happens. And that's the beauty of growing up in a small town is they didn't have people that wanna work or could work a Saturday morning shift or Sunday morning shifts and and to stick of sixteen seventeen year old kid, you know, spinning country music and doing the news weather sports in between breaks and stuff like that it was valuable experience. But after that, you know, growing up at a small town, you feel a little horrid a disadvantage because the local television stations were all either at Clare which was almost an hour away or the twin cities, which was two hours away. So you work and work and work on, you know, your voice and making sure you're not seeing, you know, having crutch words, all the time and and working on your craft. So to answer your question more fully, you could to Rhinelander that was my first each in the business, and you know, you think okay, you're young, and you may be your little cocky or have a little much confidence. You think man, I got this down or whatever. And I look at my tapes when I'm twenty two twenty three years old, and I look like thirteen and I have no Thawra Tatum. Poyser Noah's Ortega presence at people it always tell people not that we what we do is is scripted like movie or scripted like TV show or or it's it's Hoyle. But on the flip side is a lot like that. Because people need to believe who is telling them the information like what you know, whether saying other delivering at things like that. And that just takes time, you know, whether you're getting older. And growing up or or or that your voice inflection or whatever and that just takes years and years of development. And so what I do is. I'm you have to be it is an eagle fuel business. Anybody tells you that they don't have an ego when they're on television or enacting or sports or whatever is is lying because everybody does to degree, but you have to try to humble yourself and have a sense of humility to say, okay, obviously, I'm not like the best ever. Or I I'm doing some things. Well, but what can I do to take it to the next level? I've always had whether people I work with that I respected or people just in general, watch television news on a regular basis or some people who are valuable because they are the viewers that watch us, and that's who you have to please at what you'd have to do. And we also have consultants. It's it's funny as question because had a consultant in last week going over, you know. Some of my stuff that I do on a routine basis or on the shows of and you have to be willing to take that criticism and people that I respect definitely will show them stuff and say, hey, did that work. You know, is that good is that not good? You know, there's nothing worse than telling jokes. And and nobody thinking that you're funny. He if your money and support you use that, but but if you're jokes fall flat it's probably better to to be the straightforward guy. Just kind of, you know, tell the facts so to speak so that so that's something that you work on on. I always say if you're not improving your either going backwards or staying stagnant. So to be I'm always looking at approve. And as a my by the way, all high performers. About. High-performing, but all high performers are trying to do that. I think and it's hard, right? Because you think especially when you get to the point where you know, you're you're you're seen as an expert. You're seen as top of your game. It's easy. It's probably easy to be like that. It's a little uncomfortable for me to wanna push and get better because I'm pretty good. So it's hard. You know, it's easy to just be like him. You know, I'm good enough obvious good enough. So I think it's like anything in life where you know, you see sometimes athletes do that -sition do that people that are in performance industry. You can put it into roller. You can put it in the coast pretty easily at I will freely. Admit that there are times where you know, you think okay? I got this or whatever. And then sometimes like wall. Okay. I kinda you'll look at this a little more closely at hindsight, I should have done this. It's like anything light. So I'm definitely would that deny think I think I'm at the point where. Yeah. Usually, I tell people, you know, people are like boy, you you really prep. Well, but in situations where things change can adjust. And I and I'm like, well the that takes time. But I also say it comes with experience to where you know, if I if I don't fully know what I'm doing at this point after twenty six years. Business at twenty two Milwaukee than probably should be looking for something else. That's not to say that everything goes perfect revenue goes great every time. And I'm my own worst critic when when things don't go well, or I say the wrong thing. I am humid been, you know, sometimes people look at people Bella vision and say, okay, you know, that person never grew up or man, why are they wrong? It'll every once in a while while it's live TV in human. And sometimes that happens, but I try to limit that as much as possible. As you're talking there. I was thinking about. From my own experience. And probably a lot of the folks listening to this. They've got a lot of experience bringing people into a company say at one level and watching that person rise up as they become more capable more confident over time in you, always take a lot of pride and people that come in at one level, and and and elevate themselves through their own hard work, and maybe a little bit through your coaching to a level. That's maybe beyond where they thought they could be you, though, have an have you also have that happening because you're interviewing and becoming aware of athletes at one level, and then accompanying them almost as they rise up to to another level. But it's not happening. Our experiences in happening on TV where everyday those people are being valuated by people who don't even know them, for example. So. What's that? What's that feel like for you? Or what's that felt like for you to to to have that unique sort of experience with watching people rise up not just before your eyes? But before everybody's eyes. I can definitely understand it. For example. You know, the the current example would be honest where I was at the press conference when he teen year-old Cager of, you know, comes from Greece doesn't even hardly, you know, mo- walkie on a map or is just kind of trying to figure out what's going on on things like that. And I just remember being that press conference going. Okay. Atoll skinny kid, and you know knows what the future holds and to see him grow into arguably one of the best players in the NBA. If not the best he could possibly be the e this year to me stories that are just a basic paging watt since he was an ice cold. Covering him and ice cold to see his development and how he's become a superstar. It's absolutely incredible. An I can I can understand what sometimes, you know, the high level athletes go through in the sense that yes, you live in the visual. I am. I always tell people especially younger people in television. When they do that. You gotta make sure that you're you're comfortable with criticism to a degree. I I don't believe in degrading people don't believe in, you know, just tearing people down just for the sake of doing it. But you do have to be willing to have a tough skin so to speak and to be willing to say, okay. You know, people are gonna say this this whatever got to just be the better person who on with that. So I can I understand that. But my role in what I do when we were just talking about this the other day with the with the house her story that I broke his is. You know, you know, when you report fat more stories like that. That you're gonna make somebody not pleased and because it's not a positive story. And that that happens. I mean that that that's the way is. So you know, I might lie role is obviously not as a pom-pom waiver. I'm not paid by the the teams. I always say what's good for their businesses is good for our business want the bucks to do. Well, you want the Packers to do. Well, you won't all the local teams to do. Well, the brewers and such. But on the flip side, you know, if you have to report on the bad, it is what I think I've been fair to the most of with the teams that I cover, and I think that's why they you know, they usually are pretty fair with me because they are not going to unnecessarily crush someone. But if it's a situation where you gotta gotta report the facts, and they aren't always totally pleasant. You gotta go with it. And you you mentioned a couple of times now that that. Broke the house or story. And as I understand that story. It's the story of two brothers who are playing where playing basketball Marquette university who have decided to leave Marquette. Go play somewhere else. And I'm not sure if that's been announced I saw some options there when you say, you broke the story. What how did that happen? That's those ones are always difficult because as I kinda tweeted out the other day, even in, you know, twenty six years of doing this you always feel a little bit. Like, you're on an island. When I go with a story like that. It's always a little bit scary. Because you go. Okay. I'm the only one that's reporting this, I hope and pray. It's true. You know, it's it's one of those situations where I, you know, my reputations on the line, and I've built up equity in the in the city. I've tried to be honest as I can be tried to become you know, as grain in the community is possible. I take it as as you know, an honor that people have faith in you that even if it's not a totally positive story. Like, you know, yet to Wisconsin kids leading Wisconsin program that they still mention to you like, hey, you know, the be aware of this in this. Repeat happening very very soon. And then you know, you once you get all the facts lined up and everything comes together, then you could go with it. But I feel that it was fair to go with that story until you had all the facts, and you what was going to happen. And I went with it. And it was I think literally like five or ten minutes later, the official press release came out after that. And it was confirmed. So, you know, sometimes you get the the bigger stories and sometimes you don't, but you always speak. It symbols like competitive sports where I like people to trust the for the information as fast as possible inaccurate. And to try to go with stuff is as soon as you can't. And in the in the news cycle the way it is. Now, how important is it? How big of a feather is it into cap to be I 'cause I is is I is followed by second probably pretty quickly right because. Tweet saying it's else's story. Now. Right. You know, like social media it. Yes, you're right. It's it's I think it's always good to be. I if possible, but I always tell people it's better to be second right than I and wrong. And the other thing in a in this left Amar gummy. Obviously, it's been, you know, say I think it's thirty eight years now going on is I will one of the things that was before. I even thought I was going to do this. But I remember being in fifth grade getting off the bus coming in the house, and my mom says the president has been shot, and you're just, you know, literally, one of those moments where your best marrived, you know. And watching the television screen is a eleven year old fifth grade or whatever. And I remember, you know, like certain news anchors talking about President Reagan being shot and this and that and I will always remember that. I believe it was Dan rather. In fact, I always Dan rather said James Brady has passed away. And you know, okay. He was given information that that's what happened whatever. But obviously it was later found out. I think it was within a half hour to an hour. Whatever that it was found out that he was in very grave condition, but he had not passed away. And he actually lived for a long time. There was the Brady Bill and all that stuff is most people. Well, and to be wasn't totally. You know, I was I don't think it was completely Dan rathers fault. But if you are the face of something that once you proclaimed, something once you say someone has passed away, I will say when I find out that some stories like that. I would rather be second or third on a story. Like that than I because you you you better make sure you don't get that person back or whatever you wanna say, you don't get that back. If you go with it in it's wrong. I remembered at all for all these years later. Yeah. And you know, I try to be as accurate as I possibly can be. But you're right. It's it's it's a tougher. It's a tougher thing. Now because people we kinda live in a microwave society and people look at Twitter accounts. They will get Facebook. They look at social media. They don't always, you know, like the five six and ten o'clock news like what I do with sports. It's not always destinations not always appointment viewing anymore. So we have to be active on social media. We have to make sure that people know that we're on top of things, even if we're not on television. So yet pop it on a Twitter account. And then the jump on the twelfth thirty show was kinda like, you know, it was kind of invigorating for me. And it was good to be on top of something. But right. It's you know, some some people are like, hey, good job or hey, you had it first. And and the you get the recognition or whatever. But but you're right in this. Day and age, you know, sometimes other people are are on it almost as quickly. The only thing I don't care for as the IDC. There are some outlets that pretend like oh, yeah. This is what the story is. They just you know, they basically don't give credit where Credit's due. We have seen a couple of instances where you're like somebody will happy on Rony reporter or something. That's not a hundred percent accurate that other people just pick it up as gospel than they will you didn't confirm it. So, but you acted like you have the story to so to me. That's that's not. That's not good. I think that happened. If people remember back to the before steeple Jehovah's he was hired. There was there was a story. A rumor going around that that shock smart, Texas was going to be the next Marquette head coach and a couple of TV stations in a couple of Bedia. Listen the walkie ran with that. And I had a boss that he's no longer at the four. But. But boss at the time. It was like you've got confirm this hokum. We're getting beaten this story what you know, what's going on. And I kept telling this person. I don't have confirmation of this. I can't tell you. I can't just say oh, yes. It's done deal. When all sources, all my people are saying are not are saying, okay, they've talked but is not done deal dot com. And there was a I if you go back in the archives. I can't remember if it was Huffington Post or or or Bleacher report or whatever. But there was a scathing article for for media, you know, people that do stories on criticizing Bedier via critics or whatever that that ripped won't say who because I don't like point fingers, but ripped a couple of TV stations. You know, couple of was in Milwaukee. And thank goodness our logo, you know, that had the local station in graphic and all this stuff and Argo wasn't on there. And I said to my boss, you know, because he was all over me. And I went win. And I. Showed him the article planted on his Eskin. I said see this is what happens kinda like what you said is not always great to be I want I and it's a competitive industry. But sometimes you need to be judicious than I couldn't take the ball over the goal line. Thank goodness. I I didn't. I did just relented say, okay, fine. Whatever. Because I Don I I'm always, right. But I believe take Riddy. Honesty counts for something. Yeah. Well, sure does in it. And that's a great point though. Right. It's it's it's better to wait and be right than it is to to forge ahead without which you need. And then have to explain why you did it. And it wasn't right. Exactly. So you brought up Twitter, and I see you're an active Twitter user, and and most of most of the folks that I hang out with in the business world are sort of tritter Twitter of verse because they feel like there's more danger to being onto them. Upsides it could be used as the tool the devil by Fred. Yeah. So so I mentioned I mean, I realize it's probably necessity in what you do. But the way that what you just have to be careful all the time. Right. So how I'm assuming you write your own you, you write your own tweets. How do you? How do you navigate it? Do you ever worry about crossing a line or trying to be funny? For example, you mentioned earlier is something funny. And it's sounded funny steamed money, and then you put it out there. And man, maybe it's not so funny. I I swear to you that I think Twitter gets most people in trouble or almost anything else though. Some people would argue that Facebook, and I I I am fluent sarcasm. It's you ask your previous guest, Nick baller. He does that. I am very fluent sarcasm so people that know me, I call it fake book instead of Facebook. Because as we all know, there's a portion of it the close to be drew or people are venting sharing their opinions that are ripping people whatever, you know, if it is the world we live in. I, you know, as much as you want to dismiss certain things one of my things that when I talked to schools and talk to people I go does anybody realize that the National Enquirer tire with winning masters to bring band things. But, you know, the original story of Tiger Woods fall from grace was broken by the National Enquirer and the game. Of Michael Jackson was broken by TMC. So as much as you want to dismiss somebody just throwing something out there. There are people somehow know people that maybe they don't have a hundred percent of the facts. Correct. But they get some of the facts. Correct. And as we talked in the in the previous question answer, they may run with something where they have fifty sixty seventy percent of the information. Correct. And but it's out there. So yes, some of it's true some of his not completely true. But but it's it's out there. And this is now the world of you know, if you try to be responsible journalist you really have to aggregate a landline, so to speak don't fairy carefully. And you're right. I feel like in my line of work doing this. Now twenty six years is a mazing how far it's come. And I don't wanna become a dinosaur. Because as I mentioned, you know, not everybody sits down and watches the five six ten o'clock news anymore, especially younger people. So like for the last two days, I've done Facebook lines. And we've gotten thousands of years on that like with the, you know, the house her story Monday and yesterday we had Jason Bengal the championship director for the twenty twenty Ryder Cup yet. And we did a Facebook live of were you could register for tickets, and we also shotted as a news story for later in the day at five six ten, but that is now the world live in is people, you know, go on their phones, they they click on a live videos on Facebook. Or they look for a tweet. You know, like, I said, you know, breaking the house restore putting out information. Even if it's if you look at my current Twitter account, you'll like last night with Christian yelich doing what he's doing kind of like what you said. I try to. I'm not I'm not a comedian, Jerry Seinfeld. But I try to be somewhat light in humorous occasionally with my tweets to saying Christian yelich was on NBC nightly news, keep had a girl a puppy. He of you know, has helped to save the Milwaukee fireworks. He had a press conference to help feed the hungry yesterday. Olea by the way, you keeps killing the cardinals keep hitting home runs through its first day job. You know, I think most people got the joke and most people were like that was funny that was clever, whatever. But you're right. You really have any. And there was a case. It's funny. Bring this up an NFL reporter and usually the NFL reporters like if you write for a team website or write for eight league website. You're usually not as opinionated as like, you know, I can be more. Ated on the local level or people that's their job to to criticize or whatever. And he was basically saying something affect of the seat box need to be careful with Russell Wilson. Because you know, I don't think he's necessarily a franchise quarterback in the last time. They gave franchise quarterback money to guy that wasn't a franchise quarterback. It was mad Flynn. The former Packers back up to the Rodgers will Matt Flint's on that tweet. And he basically tweeted back at him and said chill, dude. And the guy had pedal and say audit mean that will yet you did cut that way because you were basically like, you know, being Twitter tough guy and taking a shot at somebody. So with when I if I have a tweet that's more critical or more straightforward, or whatever I have to be willing to walk into that bucks locker room to walk into that brewers clubhouse and take the medicine and same thing. Why qua- you know, if you was with the story of the two houses leaving Marquette I have to. My big boy pants on the next time. Arquette hasn't availability your interview Cirque people, they, you know, they're probably not happy about the situation more than what I reported because what reports the facts, but you still have to have to go in there and be like, well, you know, this is what it is. And and or gun on a business relationship. Speaking of your sarcasm and fake book at the beginning. You mentioned your your nickname for Nick with slick Nick when it what's that all about? Well, he's a he always teases me about my hair be perfect since I'm a TV guy. Make like so you don't he's very screw up. Yeah. That's part of it. The other part of it is obviously he's just I met you quiches really really sparred at biz at what he does how he helps people at south. And and if it's refreshing that sometimes when you tell people, hey, up, France with Cirque Pete person, you kinda almost cringe because you get reports bag or or you say like, hey, you know, such such also somebody goes all. Yeah. That guys or that person is Bob, blah, blah, angular Ola got until that person. I'm with them, then, but I have a co worker whose husband works with Nick and say nice things about that's always good to hear about France. So if more like teasing and more like, you know, just we always have nicknames for people, but Zo that it just rolls off the top. It's like a sports thing to right. Everybody's got a nickname for the people absolute. Yup. Since speaking of. I was just thinking when you were talking. There was the I guess. I guess I was thinking about intimidation. But I guess I wanna I get into the the mechanics like what are the what are the actual mechanics of getting an interview in a locker room, for example, because I imagine having never done it. I imagine at the end of the game or the beginning of a practice, or whatever there's lots of competition for the particular athletes time, and so what are the mechanics that? And and how do you navigate that? What happens to kinda always call it the wizard of is affected. I think that's movie that everybody's pretty much seeds. You can use the allergy. But it's kinda like, you know, you're the great wonderful is Kurt goes back. You actually, see what what actually goes into it, and what it entails. So what normally happens after a game? There's like a ten minute cooling down period. So that way athletes, you know, it's it's, you know, it's your reputation. It's your job on the line. And I can understand that as much as I would like to, you know, stick up Mike in somebody's face get a wild reaction or get celebrating or get whatever's going out of the motion. The, you know, usually, you have a ten minute period where they don't allow you the locker room or in the clubhouse or whatever. And then you can go in. And whenever someone is like, it's I always call it now for the for most people that cover the teams and stuff it's the moments like Michael Foale served individuals that Michael toured always wanted trest. Perfectly. Like, he he did do interviews or shirt off for this. Or that whatever that he deathly wanted to look presentable when he was on television. So there there certain guys that you give them their space. They they get dressed whatever. And then you do the interview when they're fully ready to go. And usually there's a group of reporters that dial around them. And then there are sometimes where if it's if it's a really bad situation, or whatever of the person might be the training room or or person from the club or the team may say, hey, they're not available. You may be upset about that. And say really, you know, we kinda need to comment from this person. But but sometimes that happens as well. So you kinda just wait your turn. And that's usually what happens in a post game situation. There's also, you know, my job is to try to get you know, interviews people that resonate with people or that. That you know, I always tell people we are a business like anyone else. And sometimes you'll people could think what they want about journalism and television, whatever, but you know, ultimately, you know, we want higher readings. We want more clicks, a not gonna compromise by integrity to get that and sages crazy stuff. That's not even true. It just to get ratings and to get clicks, whatever. But on the flip side of that. You know, you wanna get like what I've done sit down interviews with J J watt when you know, and you have to pursue. You know, interviews with certain bigger name athletes and everybody wants to hear from the key contributors. So my job my role is to try to get you know, the the bigger name people to talk gun up on a fairly regular basis. And you said, you know, on camp Jay forward have us kind of the outlet of of record that people count on us to get enter, thanks. And how willing are athletes generally to talk and not just sort of after the the the game or whatever. But like like you're talking about J J watt or doing an interview with Aaron Rodgers where he's talking about some controversy. You know around Mike McCarthy, or or whatever how I think self, you know, like movie stars and stuff they go on all the shows and stuff when they have something to promote otherwise, you can't get them. And I don't know if athletes are the same way, and and then how do you? So that's my first question than follow that up with. There are some that you've obviously earned something more of a relationship with and just being a sports anchor. And how does that end up happening? Two great questions. So the first is Joe like the guys who were on the quote unquote star level you'll like Aaron Rodgers rarely does sit down interviews anymore somewhat. Because he doesn't doesn't have to like sometimes athletes will do a lot of sit down one on one interview. So that way people know like, you know, really, what makes them take or to build their brand get -dorsements, you know, have the community like them know them better things like that. And once you get to that level of Aaron Rodgers or JJ watt or Christian yelich or Janas at tentacle, you know, quite frankly to stay at the top of your game. And I could understand as an athlete as much as I want those guys to do as many interviews as possible or do sit down sir to give me the, you know, at least even like ten minutes of their time. They have to you know, work out and train in home their craft as much as anybody in Christian yelich came off the road trip and. Took early batting practice on Monday. Look what at he three home runs at Monday and hit another one, you know, Tuesday last night as of this podcast taping and same thing with John is's out on the court, usually like to two and a half three hours shooting before a game and working on stuff in Aaron Rodgers is is obviously one of those competitive, athletes I've ever covered. So. Yeah. So I can understand that they are extremely busy in in to give you even a little bit of time in their day is is pretty amazing. But to answer your question as far as like building that equity. I call it sweat equity that, you know, for example, at JJ watt door or certain athletes that grew up in the walkie area. When you hear about someone who does have extraordinary ability you'd I try to get to know the family, or no the athlete or no the people as soon as possible because then. They realize what you are not leery of, you know, as this guy would direction is this guy coming from at, blah, blah, blah, whatever, and you build a relationship that doesn't mean that, you know, everything's gonna be peaches cream. You'll see sells balloons require us to say. But I think that they are willing to give you things that they don't give other people other outlets, whatever if you have built a relationship, and I keep in touch with a handful of people like that that that are very good people. Just because you've built that relationship over time. You. How do you think about? I'm trying to figure out how how to ask this question that. Well, let me let me go to another question. Now think about how to ask that question better. What about are you ever intimidated? You're scared either, you know, because somebody is such high profile like they come in. Maybe they're not a local athlete. They come in here for something. And you haven't had a chance to really get to know them or they're one of those who just hates the media, right? I'm not talking to the media, whatever that. So it's it's a double it. I think of two different things like, you know, in my role in high tell like, you'll grade school kids, I've I've doing a great school taught tomorrow, the first thing that usually kids ask you can get autographs or begins fees, or whatever. And I tell people all the time. It is specifically I kid you not it is specifically written in the my contractors clause called no plug Ola. No payola what that means is plug Ola is like my dad is a dodge Chrysler Jeep dealer, and my brother-in-law, you know, now taking over the business from him, and I can say it on his body cast. But I can't go on TV and say, hey, I love my dodge charger, you need to go down by one from by dad or my brother-in-law or they're the best cars ever. It's like a free advertisement. I can't do that. And same thing with pale is if you're going to locker room when it's. Regular availability. And you're going up to Aaron Rodgers going up to somebody and asking them for autographs or sell fees wander. Gonna look at you like, dude, what are you doing this is professional environment? We're here to talk about how we just beat the Bengals or whatever and to your basically using that person as your own personal wealth builder. You know, whatever you're doing with the autographs, and whatever you're doing with the with the pictures and stuff, and it's just not professional. I have to be as professional as ethical as I possibly can. Now that being said, you know, the first time that I interviewed Michael Jordan. You sit there goal. Okay. This guy height. I love basketball. I the only sport that I actually saw so blank dive was basketball and the jump man, it's the it's a guy who's econo-. He's one of the best if not the best in his sport ever, and you have to kinda calm yourself down and say, okay, human like me too. But yet you do. Those those moments where yet gives a little nervous. And I also say that, you know, there were guys back in the day like Steve McMichael or certain athletes that they can be intimidating. The one interview sit down interview that I distinctly remember about a decade ago. Approximately was I gotta wanna when Lance Armstrong came to town. I only do him. You know, the only way I knew him was by TV and seeing him from a distance, and, you know, eating whatever at never met the guy before some like it. He comes to walk, and I only one on one sit down interview with him and his PR Representative Arctic represent Representative says no questions about drugging doping controversy, blah, blah, blah, whatever. And you know, the I I don't like going into interviews with limitations on the questions. You can ask I always felt like I live by the gold rule do unto others as they do to you, Pat. I'm going to be fair with people, and I'm not going to like beat him over the head with microphones go crazy like a Jerry Springer episode. But I also know that there are certain questions that you would be a full not to ask or for that. At least doesn't come up in conversation, and you don't have to dwell on it the whole time, but part of. Person story when tour to France victories are no longer the elephant in the room. This was this was just before everything broke. This is this is a vivid memory for me is that this is before he got busted busted. And I remember sitting down to do the interview with him, and you could tell he was a little on the cocky side, Perry confidence side, whatever you wanna say. And we get about halfway through the interview. And all sudden, he it was a question that was kind of you know, different direction. But he brings it up. It was almost like catch me. If you can't eat brought up some of the doping stuff this that whatever and I follow in. That's where you have to listen like I previous conversation. We had in his podcast where I once again, I would be very foolish if everything I did was scripted. And you can't deviate from the script or I would be very foolish to have all these questions line. Kinda like what you've done with this podcast is you probably have questions prepared and I prepare to. But when you. You've done a good job of following up on something that I've said that you phone either to be interesting. I think the audience finds interesting same thing with this is my jaw just about hit the ground and his PR marketing person is standing directly over both of our shoulders while we're doing the interview and Lance Armstrong kind of plays Nona. They can't catch me. And I followed it up with you know, it was an innocent enough question. But I said all been why are the the French, especially because the French media was always, you know, like, okay, this guy, there's something with this guy. There's something doesn't add up. They were probably the ones that most critical of Lance Armstrong because that that is one that's there like crown jewel mislead tour to France. And I said to him. Why is the French media all over you all the time? Then why do they keep you know, whatever any he was little I remember the quote to this day. He was extremely defiant and was like, yeah. What they dig in my trash. They look at my hotel rooms they haven't found anything what if they found? They can't find anything. They got nothing. Not be blah, blah, blah, any Woodall signed this tantric remote a minute. Well, it was six to twelve months later is when finally the feds, you know, in water and everybody came in and put him, you know, finally gave him what basically he deserved. So he was kind of playing the you know, what you got on. He was kind of playing the derby game so to speak, and I will always remember that. He's a he's a obviously a very interesting cat. Right. He. Denied denied denied which isn't uncommon I suppose for athletes we've had some of that here. Locally to deny deny deny then admit. But most admit once they go to the admit part. It's like full on admit, right? Sorry. I apologize whatever. And he had such a hard time doing that. And even now I hear him on podcast and stuff and he'll freely. Admit now, tell you everything, but it's not he doesn't feel like he did still doesn't come across like fell Neil's. Like, you do anything wrong. He feels like he did what he had to do to. I don't I don't fully get it. Like, I know that athletes have they put up a shield because they have to be large. You know, some people feel like they have to be larger that lights, it's kind of their their defense mechanism of they live in such a tough world where you know, people are praising you one moment ripping you the next, you know, somebody's always like behind you that's younger than you. Try to get your job might of actually be better than you. And I know it's, you know, even though some athletes have huge egos pay actually are more fragile than what you think. Just because they're always looking over their shoulder. But, but yeah, I don't I is something in his care during the just can't fully admit either that I'm truly sorry or that I'm repented or whatever there there are some athletes, and we've seen it where I truly feel like they really feel bad for what they did in the past. They were young dumb. It's in stupid and just did some bad things. What? Ever. And they kind of end you wanna give them a second chance, whatever. But you mentioned locally like I just had this conversation with someone either yesterday or the day before where sometimes you don't fully know certain athletes. I would be extremely disappointed if anything bad came out about athletes that I know and cover on a regular basis, you know, whether it's you know, I've mentioned that I know I know the watts v. Well, I know you don't grow Chris Maragos, very, well, there's certain athletes that I could pretty much for their character who they are because I've known them for a long time, and it would be extremely disappointing to find out something bad about them. But on the flip side, I always tell people even we in the media. Yes, we see character traits. I can tell you what a person is kinda like and how they conduct themselves but were not around these people other than ten fifteen twenty thirty minutes at a time in a locker room in my cautionary tale. To that is Darren sharper, everybody in Wisconsin. No that that Packers players are put on a on a pedestal. They're put on a different level because you know. Yes. The brewers are doing amazing things. Yes. The box. Everybody's fired up the badgers have a huge following Marquette, whatever. But you know, the biggest sports story most of the time or the team that gets the boast tension. The most ratings, you know, it's proven with the ratings. It's proven with the click on the internet. Whatever anything Packers. I I make our cast a comments at the time that people wanna know about the backup punter as much as they wanna know about anything else and the cautionary tale is Darren sharper was in that locker room for years, and we would go in and talk to him. And he was well spoken, and he was a go-to interview go to sound byte night, you know, nice guy with the media, this that whatever. And nobody knew what was going on off the field until. Later in life, and what happened later. So I always caution people. It's like, hey, it's great. It's great to have athletes and people that you look up to and you know, role models and things like that. Always you with that. But I do caution younger people do caution people to say sometimes you don't fully know or one person is of us. You have a relationship with Evan and at our round right there in sharper, like Bill Cosby sort of story, right? And I guess the up that's the tricky part of life because anybody can be whoever they wanna be for a twenty minute interview for yes. Or many twenty minute interviews, but. I was gonna say I could tell you a bunch of stories do type just yet. It's people are strange. You know, they're they. None of us are one hundred percent probably who we appear to be. But some people are way way different in the Bush that we get the Bedia obviously a lot too. Especially state ages. You know, all your just biased say, I work in the toy department. I don't have to deal with the the nitty gritty of news on a day Dale days. But you know, sometimes sports turns into news. So I'm not saying that way to saying, you know, I don't have to deal with the political realm or some of the other more controversial topics day-to-day basis. But I also tell people that anyone who says they don't have a bias is a liar because everyone in life has been you know, has has a world view, or has an opinion or has a point of view from what has influenced their life. You know, whether your your parents taught you to work hard, or whether you know, you had something tragic happen in your life, or whatever. But my job is a journalist is, you know. I get the factor p columnist who are paid to write opinion. I get the fact that talk radio you have to take a side on an issue. I get the fact that there are certain things in life where people want your your opinion or want something. But if I am on the scores cast at five twenty six twenty ten twenty. I don't feel like it's my role. I don't feel like I'm the one that's gonna tell you that this person is awesome. And that person scumbag, and this is this is what you need to believe or whatever. I mean, I believe and maybe I'm a prude him school. But I just believe the journalism one one. Here are the facts, you know, you decide you present both sides of it. And and you try to play it as middle the fairway to use a cult finality sports analogy as possible. And then you decide if what side you're on. And and all that stuff and yet talk radio. You know, a podcast something something else where someone asks you for Pinon, give your opinion. I I have no problem with that. But I just think when you when you're dealing with telling someone what you know to be factual or believed to be factual again, I always tell people that I what comes out of my mouth. I believe it to be true. It's what I've been told by people sources, you know, people in the know whatever, and I'm human sometimes, thanks can change or whatever. But at the time that it comes out of my mouth. I believe it to be true in at. I do my homework and stuff like that still everyone has a bias. But my job is to limit much as possible. Thanks for that explanation. It's it's it's pretty important. And I do agree with you about bias. You can't buy his something. That's even it's even genetically programmed a lot of bias, right? Like, it's kinda help keep us alive for a long time. But, but, but but it doesn't need to invade everything that you do right. You can just have a conversation with somebody. And you don't have to have or an interview, and you don't have a bias you. You're just two people. Right. And it's whatever they say what they whatever you listen to what are you? Here's what you hear. It's fine. Love I sometimes tend to be a deep thinker. Whatever it, I I don't mind having deeper conversations of what's the direction of football. You know would be win win. Everybody brings up concussions or would you think about, you know, you know, this or that or whatever I think that's healthy. I think that's what generates the interest in sports, quite frankly is, you know, whether you like the one or don't like someone I some my friends lamp because I still watch and like pro wrestling, and they're like laughing at me like, okay, it's like, you know, scripted drama. You know, this that whatever. But I think about it a lot of times pro sports is at its best. It's almost like pro wrestling where you have a good guy and a bad guy or good wrestler in a bad wrestler, for example, you'll like the the Packers the bears or the Packer like for years when the Vikings had Randy moss certain individuals that Packer fans, quite frankly. Get Wyche the it creates more interest in the product people. Tune in more. They wanna see the good guy win the in the bad guy loot. So that that to me is sometimes the the the very essence of sports, I can see that too. Because we said in front of a TV show or movie that we that we like, right? It's one hundred percent scripted. But it doesn't feel scripted to us because we're entertained by it. It's the natural. Wrestling is like it's like a physical entertainments like physical theatre. That's what I tell when my friends get on me for liking wrestling. I go will do like star worst. You like going to the latest action will be if the sensually the same thing. It's just what type of entertainment you like. And it's just that old Shakespearean thing of watching either the person that you like, you know, win or seeing the person that you can't stand win, and you go can't somebody knock that person off their bride. The patriots, the whatever you think of certain teams or whatever events Tiger Woods the patriots. Whatever. It's it's it's it's almost like a player a drama that that plays out in realize. It's the hook. That's what else you come back. Yep. So I I want to be respectful of your time. I have two final questions if that's okay. No problem. The first is. Trade offs. I know a lot of us to to to to get a certain point in life. There are certain decisions that have to be made you have to choose, you know, work over something else or you have to choose this over that. And I'm wondering if trade if if and and if so how trade-offs have played out in your in your life. Another very good question. I've had interns that had no idea that I work nights. And I kind of you know, I try not to to root bout it, but I'm like well were who's gas at five twenty six twenty twenty sports cast every single eight so their lives. So you you have to be here at those times. And then they realize wait a minute there some weekends where I can have gets off. But there are times where you'll like the bucks play on Sunday last weekend for the Packers scheduled comes out later today. You'll find out that you know, you're going to be working a lot of Sundays you cover the badger football team. They play a lot Saturday games. And you work a lot of weekends than they still expect you to work, you know, mainly Monday through Friday on a regular basis. So you may collapse Akra faces business my wife, and I always kind of surpassed called it. The missing man. Formation because we were first dating or newly married she would show up wedding funerals at at a lot of Vance on weekends of in a lot of Vance by herself at people with teaser, like you're you're just think your dating or married to that guy. That's on TV. You're just making it up. But, but that's, but that's. Never gonna complain about. What I do in that sense. I do like I said before I work in the toy department. I could deal with a lot of fun things. But the one negative or drawback that in younger people, God bless them. When they when we've had interns that realized that you know, he gonna work nights. And hey, I gotta work a lot of weekends. This isn't for be. I would rather have figure that out at twenty one twenty two years of age rather than you get to thirty. And you've got you know, wife and kids and family you got to figure out. Okay. Well, now on I think it'd be for the rest of my life or or I'm going to switch gears or whatever because. Yeah. It's it's not backbreaking work. I'm never going to say that I'm digging ditches or anything like that. But I also, you know, my, my wife and three kids have sacrificed a lot for me to live dream that a lot of people would love that numerous people come up with love ADB your job. And I I know for a fact they would, but there are a lot of days where yesterday I was in to work at ten. Clock, and I exit building ten forty five at night, you know, talking forty five minutes talking twelve hour shifts. You know in today, it'll bucks practice at ten thirty in the morning, you know, and that you're at the game doing live shots. And you'd be Pfizer form at ten forty five at night and weekends and stuff like that. So that the hours are not family friendly. So you do have to have kind of that roll up your sleeves get it done metality when you're in this. And what about if you had to describe to someone what was unique about you, Lance? What would you what would you say? I guess I would say that you know, I was raised by parents that just believed in the value, art work. And I think that's what has gotten me to wear aunt. I never have thought I necessarily more talented people, or you know, it's funny because people in TV people outside a TV. That those TV have big egos and all we care about is our air looks put our backup or whatever. But that is a component of what we do is. You know, how look camera your presence at camera stuff like that. So I never thought I was -sarily talented or the best camera presence or whatever. But I have always Benny ferocious reader. I prepare, you know, like a mad, man. And I just feel like nobody can all work. You know, somebody may have baby more gifted or have more tools in the in the toolbox or whatever, but you're desire, your heart. Nobody can measure that nobody can exceed that you put in the work that you wanna put in and lot of times putting yourself in position to make a play. You can make a play. You know, I might not necessarily, you know, better than something else that it. But if you're in the. -sition to do something big that that's half the battle. So I've always felt like, you know, it's on me to make sure that I know as much about all the local teams, the truly going on, you know, that's not gonna come from somebody else that's gonna come from my nettle preparation, and my just desire to work and to be as good as I can be get the most out of my talent as I could get that. That's that's on you. So the it's you putting the sweat equity end and saying this is what I'm gonna do this. This is as good as I'm going to be. I love the decision component to your answering. Make a decision of what you want to want to do and put everything you have into that decision. Absolutely. I'm a firm believer that. Well, lance. Thank you so much for for being on the show today.

They kinda act like you're a robot that when they come up to public. They actually wanna like, you know, coca you were touch. You say, yes, I have a real human being with flesh and blood and in Wisconsin guy. So I just feel like those of us that grew up in the midwest or up in Wisconsin. I I have nothing to hide I try to be as honest as I could be and I and I honestly try to help people as much as I possibly can't really thing. When I go into schools, I tell people I will answer any and all questions to the best of ability. The only one I won't directly answer the tends to be popular with sixth graders. How much you make?

Yeah aw vast me Hardee's yes don't landlubbers whether coastal stream ahead. I'm your host surely the Professor Esser and with me as always as my skinny rich brand. Ma It's eight. Oh Mazi it's at the end of the road. It's season one episode eight of the boy. Oh boy you found me you pedal. You found me. The season finale time questions answered secrets revealed conflicts conflicted exploded and so much more director of course is excellent. Tesla aircraft. He did last. You know what was your right at. No creepy creepy is great Office to me right now. I'm calling you my hardest. Working man in Intro BusinessWeek author developed buys me He. He's the guy who made all of this really. I'm getting the sense that overall we're all for the show. That guy is going to be takes it. Yeah I got I gotTa feel. We'll go by the at the end of the show. But in the meantime writing credits let's go to a an Colville songwriters and Rebecca Sunshine Who is Myron? Shine my own happy Wednesday Great no both Rebecca and an written by credits. Of course Eric Kripke is is getting that developed by again and Derek Robertson get are based on the Comic Books Back But oh my goodness what an an episode now of course does less episode. You may have already review this episode the few together different episode road to drink and the episode Got Kinda mixed up in mean Maoz's said maybe we should keep raising the less much before before we did this. podcast perhaps yeah but he's FBI. Think we left the meet of everything alone. There was some stores. I guess that were integral took or finished off. Thought if probably babies episode that I guess we got into but I think the media what this episode is about left alone. What else say is I really? You get the feeling in both these cases. It's one art between these two episodes. It's so within the relationships nations ships because again for the deep and floor starlight. Kind of funny if you think about this series. His book ends with the Starlight for some reason. And I don't quite know why we deepen storming the start of it. We have them at the end of it kind of reversing their own spots three fair. Also you know maybe seeing how how life is more complicated than it seems and we'll get to them in a minute but this episode opens up with Kind of the the be a superhero. Seen we've been waiting for a little bit tease it a little bit with letting you know. Homeland or Goleta. But even this is still still reserve relative to what I'm sure is capable of but it was nice to see you know just a wreck down a little bit. I don't no no it's to me it's really punching down. No obviously I'm just saying as a character I wanna see express that power. I WanNa see some violence silence. I want to see some superpower lasers punching and whatnot and we haven't gotten that just yet and so. It was nice to get a little bit of that here but I don't know you know what it is is. Here's my problem with it. It's all manufactured is one thousand percent manufactured. Because we already well. I actually this was was this was kind of the gag of it. 'cause we talked about this last episode. It actually gets review of this episode that that that camp on V. He's finding there he's the one who put it there or he might he might have even brought it there it might just be part of a PR campaign that might have been a legit sell. I mean obviously marketing era are when they were legit. Bad guys in the military was overtake today. I got this one and plus. I'm just going to plant this real quick yes to make things easier. I think easier than leading military to attack base. You know they're going to attack and having that be the site of your experiments so you know in you know what I think is telling about it you really know what is the most telling aspect of this. What's that super isn't there? They're not tracking down the super super. Right right right. This isn't yeah. It's just a random Mission right yeah for me. It's clearly a random mission because actual the seal team eighteen twenty four. was there ready to take the place and then homeland or shows up to basically just make himself feel big which is like you know you play basketball against against midgets it's not. You're not as impressive as you think you are. You know. Yeah yeah what he's doing. He's playing basketball against midgets and right. I'm not saying that it's it's it's anything to be lauded as you know showing character a terror or anything. I'm just saying it's cool to see that guy do bag I think's fair enough fair enough that he's being a so yes so he is the bad right he's the villain of the piece. Oh without a doubt he is the big threat. He's the big daddy of the entire show. And the universe has coalesced around him in a way out of fear placating him with whatever they can to get him to stay. Calm Yeah I guess I get that. I guess it's to me. It's kind of the madness of King. George it's the idea of you. Know we have a mad king who who basically fell backwards into a power and now all we have to do is be desperately desperately afraid of him unleashing his wrath honestly political. But I kind of feel if this wasn't written like you know a year ear and Vance. Let's say man. This is some great political satire and this is probably as seen that seen before stripping the actual anyway non sequiturs. But if if I hadn't been written years ago I would say. This is the most clear political satire of our current situation nations of people. Just placating omnipotent baby in there as what we see here because this is I I mean like I say it's. It's bad taking a whole because even at this because this is the thing the big scary reveal deal that we that we actually talked about last episode. We're which is that we find out that Homeland was the one distributing the drunk driving. We thought that happened less. No that's not right. So many things happen this episode that really defined line where we're going and among the things that defined will define where we're going the deep after his sexual After being sexually assaulted in Alaska and coming to his own rock bottom and doing the whole shaving his body shaving his head and then regretting in the feeling workless. it's powerful. Don't you know I thought the away was acted was was wonderful to where he's sitting there and it really seems like it's an idea that just happens. You know those one of those weird sparks you get in a in a when neuron stifling situation and you get really uncomfortable and you have like the wildest craziest Audet you don't do it but it pops into your head out of nervousness but if you were to do this or you know and you see that moment land on his close with one quick and then he immediately regrets it and then hates him more for being so weak to having allowed that to happen and then it just goes all the Oh. It's such a beautiful beautiful. You acted moment. I don't know how many days seasons they're going to do this. But I do wonder if our redemption Arkan some way for the deep and like I said last episode. How dare they make me feel so much kitty for this guy but I wonder if so as an example one of the things we get in this of course starlight coming around being a hero and I and this idea that you know it doesn't I really feel like so much of this is people that I didn't ask for superpower but that have them and being told what they're supposed to do with them and you know honestly it's real interesting that they haven't had a super villain up until now but I'm guessing that a lot of beings are cold early if you understand my my my my phrase on that that basically a lot of people that were a real threat were dealt with quicker and it's only home-lenders? blenders basically randomized trials. That are creating things that'll be actual threat spread. That could actually scare people that could actually on the brink of Armageddon again. So it's kind of like they were so careful with their planning on rolling out of the experiment that they they were careful never to let risk be too high except as and now he's taken everything out of the bounds of their control schemes and they have no idea what can what happens now. You might Chica full expression of the county. Essentially he has been an unknowing Rosenberg. You know he is Basically took what was he took the atom bomb that Gao had in its little cell. As word the formula for Coca Okola of only two people will know have the ingredients kind of situation and then just you know handed it out like Handy Handy And now we're in a super humanly empowered were and now now. The threat is real. Now the threat of superhumans going nuts is suddenly a real threat because as I say from the a great from one of the greatest kind of written Dark Claw number one in the Amalgam universe. The problem with quitting living weapon is is that a weapon normally Pick it up off the table and decided just start killing people and essentially what what they did. was they created living weapon hyphen and the living weapon got bored and decided you know what I want other living weapons to play. I want ones that I can rasoul Because I liked her astle and you know we may who is close to Nicholas He. Has You know. Oh I don't know about that because it didn't. She break her arm holding up a bus. You know how big is a bus. I I mean I feel like it would be like pinkies worth of work for homeland or now. I don't see that won't happen. He has laser so like superstrong right right but we also heard him saying about like the work of the airplane. The data. That's true physics questions that it's like. That's that's the thing is that there are still bound by the laws of physics. They may have super strong bones. You know that's that's always that thing about you know how you how King Kong's like ankles would break break like well no. They wouldn't because they didn't so obviously however he involved his ankles were stronger than normal guerrillas. Ankles what exactly was. It's the same idea. Oh this creature couldn't go from the water to the land Christmas being about God's Ella right that a creature that size that existed in the what I am doesn't exist in the water. He just was coming from the water but the idea that because he is a water creature he couldn't come onto land in have his bones. Weak Sherman up in less. You know. Part of its life cycle was to do that. I think I think the gripe they basically had had was a creature that size is posture. Wouldn't be proper in that manner except it makes the assumption about so for example example you can look at human bones human bones you would stay with us being could possibly Walk Upright. You would have constant factory. Well guess what humans have constant back name we walk up right. What's your question you want? That's that's exactly exactly my point. Is that if you're if you evolved creature you can't say you can't look the thing that's existing and say you possibly exist. You can't look at a big foot and say big foot's aren't real you only zest. It's like well. No there's a big foot standing in front of you clearly this. Maybe we know you have to explain. Why a big please right right? So by creating this character you have also consequentially created a revolutionary evolutionary Sherry lineage for that creature as well exactly so you create the monster. The monster has to exist right and then you have essentially. It's the NOPE It's the rule is the no prize rule of site that you can't look at something that's existing in front of you and say doesn't exist and and certainly you can say well maybe people listening to you. Maybe it was mass hysteria fair enough but when it steps into your lab and it's the freaking you know Great Alien Never GonNa say well. I guess you're a grail gotta discuss what that means for everything yesterday on the speak out. Okay Hey Chris and definitely wants us to talk about mandatory. I definitely think after we do our little sorbet of the Black Mirror I I think we should go into the mandatory. I'm with it. Let's do it okay. So we're GONNA do a quick sorbet of the Black Mare and then we're going to go right into that Laurean after that. Okay but back to this episode. Oh Nice Okay Tristan report of everything as you always are in my life the back to this episode so so within this entire storyline within this entire concept So what I was saying. Okay let's get back to my last actual thought what I was thinking about. The deep is I think because deep isn't the Akron Testy. The writers may decide tried to give him a redemptive moment with homeland or in the second season order where he gets to show he is strong. He's just always so for example apple we don't know of homeland or week. We've never seen homeland in space as an example which means you into the water and of course she no. It's like Oh heat vision. Well that's going to do much in the water. Do you know it's like when you shoot bullets into the water you know. The water is support so much resistance on the bullets basically useless right. This lasers that can operate underwater. I'm sure well yeah but you. What do the light on something? Yes but to be burning cutting laser eye so essentially what happens is the energy hits the molecules it was of that surface watering they immediately. Evaporate is enough of a concentration of it. I think 'cause they have like these torches that cut metal underwater. Oh Yeah Yeah. Yeah but that's different kind of torture. That's a magma right. So I imagine they hadn't So essentially essentially if Home Lander Lander is underwater and that's the that's the trick if homeland or is underwater and right next to the deep he could certainly laser eye him but if homeland or goes underwater the deep is behind him and puts them into a half Nelson right or full. You would need to do a full Nelson that situation tweet right if the deep underwater is as strong as homeland or and they can. Then it's when you put your arms under someone's Armpits pits and then put your hands behind their head so you're holding them down so they can't move on and then slim's them underneath the water to classic bully move. Oh Yeah Yeah. It's it's I mean it's a it's a it's an actual wrestling move of course but it's a classic bullying well. Yeah but it's also it's a perfectly legal hold don't Miss Nelson is not is not a legal hold. Okay partly Choko Beth even a sleeper. That's just not even missing whole. Oh I've even recently discovered something as a quarter Nelson who to figure. Imagine what a quarter I remember looking at it and all that kind of makes sense I guess it is kind of a quarter Nelson. It's where it's from. I don't remember exactly what it is. Something like one hand or it's from the side sort of like you do like the other arm under your own armpit and sort of kind of like pushing it back so I don't remember exactly what it was remember seeing. Oh my my God. There's even a quarter Nelson. I wonder if there's AIDS Nelson one because this guy was a fairly one of the greatest wrestlers whoever live named the bully in the sense it anyway so so yeah so I think you might get. I don't think it's going to be homeland. What if he's GonNa be integral into would ever defeat might come to homeless? See I think people like that. They only only redemption that is usually afforded them is to sacrifice themselves. Make that play in order to save somebody else net. Maybe we can have redemption. But it's not going to be something that makes him grow or heats him around he's got to like give in order to get redemption. He can't do well and feel good about themselves himself and get to live with that. That's not the kind of redemption. I think that's in store for him. No no and I I agree but I think the maybe caveat to that is. He's aware that feeling when you are a being who is so separate from humanity Knows how did you are inside that the only way you can be the only way that you can actually say I have worth is to sacrifice. Writes yourself in that moment you know and you know not not to not to be in. I mean that's I mean so many so many people maybe even think that when they make bad decision about their lives. But you know so certainly thinking about doing that. Please call our hotline. Unless you're Samurai than you what do you got to do well. Japan declared Samurai. You're not another table round. And let's King Arthur input excalibur on your shoulder for let let let's caller shelter avenue in Credit U. I can. I can Sam a professor all day long. I won't myself INAUGURA. Samurai myself curry the Samarai Mariah S. Her that's not a Riverton. Had some weight behind me you know. Unless the Japanese Emperor has decided that I get a feudal domain of which the rule as a warlord I am not a Samurai I am not a shotgun that the emperor of China giving that people. The Chinese Samurai a Ronin Samurai without a master which means someone who was at one point eight. Samurai I or who trained to be a Samurai But then fell out of favor with the emperor of Japan or some other feudal lord that was was making sort of little samurais. So that's running ronin usually don't have proper armor we'll because because Star Wars uses a lot of cultural appropriation of Japanese middle so Mythology so yeah. Lucas uses the word Ronin. Like it's going to stop as a lot of a lot of fans of curious Chris. Our to be fair said even necessarily cultural appropriation anymore than saying you know. He's a night of something the thing is cultural procreation. Because there's no nights in America but you know we've got English mythos that is not relevant to a lot of people's history. But we're going to go play. You know so you know but anyway that that's that's that's that whole conversation We're in the deeps redemptive arken were that goes One of the things I thought was was brilliant and I really wanted to talk about was The scene where starlight confronts her mother and she goes mother comes in is about to give her breakfast and she goes. What's compound be that? Little hesitation that tiny moment of recognition and then the effort it takes to cover it up and continue on like nothing happened in make the waffles. It was so perfect and that woman is a phenomenal actress and Cusak. That was a and I love that scene. Because she's such a great actress. I've seen felt really really real. And then when Sir Astara starlight storms out you get you know what you think is going to be the wrote obligatory scene where no any know any any but it felt real and unlike unlike in most other shows you don't just stop. She chased after went to the door and would not stop calling for her to come back so it didn't seem like she was was saying any any because the line's told her to really felt like she was begging for any to come back and continue the conversation. I thought that seems that was perfect in that. I mean aim to be fair. There's a conversation to be had and there's a real real story here. which is that you know? I made a choice because I had to make a choice. Someone said you could have something more and I. I was a person in dire straight and it's not like they were saying it. I I doubt there was a full disclosure. You know at this has ever. This is probably actually. I mean have to jump ahead now because she was probably born in like late nineties. You know So the proper well in our world there's proper laws about what you have to tell someone before you give them an experimental drug in this universe. Who I know it's like it's like the watchmen? University never passed another technically. Yeah technically doesn't exist so there aren't any laws to govern. Its it's implementation there again. Yes so it becomes ver- somethings I acknowledged that this is a illegal legal drugs my child and I accept all risks there little Latin boilerplate. You know so yeah. But but at the same time it also worked out really nicely because her house some craze sociopathic monster she came super-powered. Amazing Superhero. Yeah and it's like when she says. How much did they pay you? She was in her in her mind when she played that moment out before she got to have that conversation with a mom that was sort of the Lynch pin of her anger. She was waiting for that to be exactly what what she thought. Her mother was in that moment that she took the money for when she says there was no money. I simply did it because I thought it would be best for you. was you know and there. You see starlight. Take a moment where she turns her head and think wait what there was no money so what then and she softens for a second but then finds her anger again and after that was beautifully hopefully Done seen it makes Cincinnati that it wasn't about the money they weren't her child because not atfer. Nothing you've said I'll give you a billion dollars if I can experiment with your child. You're living in a much bigger house you're not doing the pageant which is in its own wave lot's own catch there because obviously if the child grew up in a big mansion without ever doing the package they're not going to be a superhero. He's just like you know. Warm up Cocoa with her hand house. So you gotta keep gotTa keep them hungry. Oh but no. But that's the thing it's like the obviously if you really WanNa make make a point about it. It's like it would've been better if he were children. That were sick and getting superpower. But that's not the case. Because obviously you know you're not going to run the risk of giving a sick kid this stuff mckellen now that you mentioned it in that light it also reminds me of the base story of the Video Game Halo where the alien forces have attacked and humans are having trouble finding out of necessity of fighting this alien horde. They start a program where they kidnapped children with genetic marker that will be able to handle the process. They're about to go through which genetic enhancement biological enhancement and and they get turned into these super elite. Super soldiers called SPARTANS and they win the war for the humane for humanity. But it's sort of in that same vein. It just made me think of that. Yeah what and for what it's worth. It's entirely possible that there's something similar going on here. Where they are were bought is really looking out there for who can handle the the the the the Super Soldier Serum which which leads which leads us to the introduction of finally of Edgar Gus fraying? Yeah and Hey. We're up STU Amazon. Saying maybe he's a black guy. Oh yeah yeah and they picked. What an actor? I mean. We don't get too much of him just yet but I think next season. It's going to be great because that guy's a phenomenal actor if you've seen breaking bad ever that guy's incredible and and what made me think of it like so you know. We know what Madeleine's intentions are. We get a sense that we might know. What Watson tens but we don't know anything about Edgar what his intentions are? And maybe you're right. Maybe there's something to that that he sees a looming threat that nobody knows about yet needs preparing and this is just a crucible through wish she finds his heroes or well lives. I don't know about threats that he sees but but in what essentially the biggest was always home lender and even pay if someone sees a threat in your in your guy that thinks foremoves ahead should be less than during the heck out of homeland or the whole time because coach chauffeur happening entrenching tool homeland homeland or was is and will always be threat. And this is why I always get back to that question of the scene. One one can't see through that there's one limitation and he's GonNa tell you usually tell you in this episode we actually get where Where home lender tells Madeleine you know. He went back two of over time and the information out of him. And here's the thing I don't know Vogel. Oh Hi is the kind of guy who just lets data on his are Dr Vogel Bomb Vogel Bumps Sorry Arden my so. I mean like yeah. He had to fit squeezed the information out of him. I imagine that's what I thought but what I meant is I think bubble bombs notes are isn't he he's scientists. He made note every aspect of of homeland. News existed exists somewhere. Now maybe they exist on a hard drive. That edger has access to maybe they were notes that Vocal Vote Obama has access to but at the the end of the day there's notes on homeland in including what might be his weakness and his point in. Here's the thing thank they keep putting their weaknesses. Same as as the people they care about. But then what if you have. A sociopath superior accepted then. We'll maybe there is still something anything that's his weakness you know it's it's like in the real world you know. sociopaths one weaknesses bullets my one weakness students. Yes and that's the thing is like I am. Here's the thing in order not to basically murder a too powerful awful soup. Once you create one the the impetus has to be what. How will we murder it at some point now? I couldn't I couldn't be over thinking it because I I do think like a super villain. I always used to say you know you. Don't build a building without thinking about how you GonNa take that building down some day. I think the clones would win. The this stormtrooper stormtroopers can't suit straight the Seem to have a really good skillet shooting anyway. Okay Tristan just watch your show no. It's okay I can't talk about two shows at wants Tristan. That's the only problem when we talk me. Laurie you can hop back in anyway Yeah I think from there we can go to the boys in their little hideout and That storyline so Butcher takes a butcher takes Huey Huey with him and somebody gets the drop on the rest of them and this is so and you know what you're basically gets is the information that you know that bought wanted them that and the DOJ said fine. which is you know politics and that is? I'm not in Tate's unrealistic because yeah you know whatever. They've decided they're going to go this route. Honestly I think that that I mean isn't an to say can be again just because I have a super villain mindset. I gotta say that the CIA isn't worried about soups prior to this moment mint or everyone got scared because Marys kids got torch. Honestly I think that you know I think that people would be way more invested that the government is going to be way more invested in this conversation prior to this but then maybe governments run by you know basically a bunch of dumb guys right looking running country rather than actually being a super villain this organization ruling the world or addicts collected the most money from donors or won the contest to pretend to be the one in control. Well control is relative and again like I always say you know. Here's what I'll say. It's like a guy like homeland. You wonder what would happen if that entire entire steel team twenty seven decided to just say no misunderstand down where we're running this up and he decides to fight them and yet he might be able to. Laser is a few. But you know a dozen well-trained screens soldiers. You know he's bulletproof but then again. What kind of books do these guys have? It's Dolly's kind of like more complex questions that if we knew we were going into this fight what would we have would have something sort of like when they make the hyper car by bullet to pierce translucent skin now granted they shot because they were idiots because they didn't cover him with 'cause he's he's in a cage. It wouldn't be that hard to shoot at him if you knew it. Heke was and then the fact that reflects of stuff is just ridiculous because it shouldn't have cuts envy harder than anything in that room unless steel is actually harder than translucent skin in which case just shoot him with we. Can you know full metal jacket jacket. And then we're good. Oh but anyway I digress. Let's going back to earlier in the season folks go back and watch it was episode. Two wasn't that was to Kansas One episode three. Hey I gotta think they've only eight episodes in mauvais covered a lot real quick when I it was because I was like. Hey that's a really really interesting and fun character this ourselves like and he was there for a while so I was The the the idea that he could die had had sort of dissolved away from me. That's why I think it might have been more than three episodes today. He's kind of just Liam ordinary gentlemen came out first where they did the invisible man in a similar way other original. HDL story actually actually does look at that idea when if no one could see. You could do whatever you want. I mean I'd like to think. HDL's was a little less sexual because it was the Macquarie era again. You never know where might have been the Elizabeth Near. I don't know but it was. It was early twentieth century and there was has some sticky wickets about but you know but anyway so yeah so they here. He gets himself caught on purpose. Such a great seem where Frenchie is beside himself. That is the silliest bit braver ever seen as the completely giving your life away the biggest is that no. I haven't actually it with anything. which again we're big assumption of wire is GonNa pick whatever left their lockton working with ambled your life on it? Yeah exactly but you know every awards out great because it says Superhero logic so miracle. We'll allow it but in this moment you know yet. He makes that choice to yeah to to makes the choice to go into this thing and basically he picks a retainer into his mouth so it looks like just normal bridge work which I don't think it would be whatever I guess again. You know pay the best guards you know this you know these are these are basically. These are basically guys who couldn't cut it in the military and now they get to hold guns for a living because of government's GonNa pay not a government but a company's GonNa pay them to hold guns and probably dot com hours for vacation action-packed. You know so it's like it's not pulling in pulling union troops remember mercenaries eight eight union. This ain't the Star Wars Universe where there is interred killed. The handle the Mary's people that are basically washed out of the military. We got hired by To be their shock troops and basically Guys who are going to look the other way because they don't have to pay as much because the bottom line question now mantra sent. I love you to go. Well it's you. You can see 'em podcasting let me ask. I love you too buddy. I don't mind hugging you. And tell me Your love and all that kind of stuff but when the middle of the PODCAST Yes especially when you want to talk about what you happen to be watching a show that no one else is watching right now anyway. So yes so they let them get in with with an Agneta Punch of his face. 'cause it's honestly it's comedy that I don't know how strong accident accidents is. I know you can fix and forget it but I also happen to think that I've seen Texan because my mom had dentures. It's I don't think it's really that impressive. Knock it out of his mouth and then they they have the retainer and they can again I don't know punching necessarily not now but okay I'll allow it. Oh it's like the tool only knows what it does right so he knows how to punch people and he's like Hey I think that might work. Ought to punch somebody at work. It works and then the other girl knows how the clocks and who knows how I just show up and be completely unassuming and of course. That's that's the real story. Is that hueys power is he. Is the real invisible man. Everyone's so long to remember. Oh that's who that walk. Just Walk Right in. It's the old This this is always big anger point with Mike Ovation swimmers when they made Bumblebee a Camaro. Yeah how because bumble puppy was a Volkswagen bug. and Volkswagen. Bug never arouses suspicion. 'cause it was hard it could be had pretty much from any era. And you're seeing. Oh look it's a bug and then you walk right past. You wouldn't think anything weird or nefarious about a bug you. You wouldn't think it was out of place anywhere you went because of rich guy can have a bug. Poor Guy could have a bug bug just things that existed and and then they make McNair was immediately going to attract your attention and no in the world is a chimera the cheapest any. I'm just GonNa say that right now but is the Volkswagen. Vw Bug of the tables like W.. Yes here's here's the bug of human and you don't think anything weird when you see him 'cause he's just some dude walking it. He's not physically intimidating so always not like mother's milk walking in who are more not to get political but or like a train out of his costume in crutches ages of you know stealing something and that's a great scene by the way I mean just to just to emphasize inside the weight of who these people are and why they're so desperate that and and to make it a point that how badly being the best is important to a train that without his powers without his notoriety. He doesn't get the respect he should roll l.. Exactly and he wouldn't you know that's the truth of that. Think I mean I know that they they break very much from the comics and this is the thing. One thing. The incredible incredible Hulk TV series from the seventies starts. Is that if you rake from the comics and Pella good story. No one's GONNA mind in. We know that. That's that's the one thing I've kind of learning in this later. Half of the first take into the twentieth century for all the Internet outrage out there when the story story is good people will you know. Even the trolls can't argue. You know and that's that I think is the most fascinating aspect of the story is that the story is good enough. The trolls can't argue. And you know I think that one of the aspects with eight is that yes. He is so so desperate to have to keep what he has because he is you know he's basically a major league ballplayer who right you. Hello and here's the thing you know you can be. You can be Reggie Jackson who can start at the top of his career and then slowly worked his way down and Reggie Jackson by the end of his career was not doing as well as he wasn't the starves sort of his career but he had very long here really long career her as a pro bowl player. You know and I think Bob Euchre who played with Jesse Jackson used to say you know we actually you. You Know Reggie Jackson you know Reggie Jackson starting with higher stats than people. We both lined up at the same place. But that's a long career for both of them because they both basically it's basically Bob Euchre was a guy who was. Just you know He. He had that long career as a guy you know as catcher just that long career as a catcher with you know middle of the road stats doing just fine give you his career and Reggie Jackson was. The superstar earned became the mediocre player as all players. Do in time because you can only be the best player for so long of course and the idea for aid train is that yeah he got to get the majors. NFL WE SO afraid of being traded down to lower to the farm team especially as especially as there isn't really a parking that we've seen in this. We haven't seen the gene that we haven't seen and of course you know what you saw. Always he was part of the team. The team brigade which means he wasn't the farm with mesmerizing pop. Quan as the in seven. And what we see we don't we don't see a new team brigade. We don't see a farm team to the superhero which is really a problem. But at the same problem every time they create a superhero they run the risk of creating super bill. You know that is their basic. The problem with this is that it's an unsustainable model I mean and basically that's the problem with created two hours it's an unsustainable model if it's not a one shot in super soldier dot you know as I kept one shot and you get a super soldier in. It's great 'cause he's he's a reasonably level super super soldier and you could make everyone a super soldier. And then it's not so much prop but the idea that you know can randomly distribute superpowers towers. Some of these guys are going to. Have you know amazing power. Some of these guys are GONNA be stretchy. You know it's it's not a good business medal vote now. They've managed to find a way to work this niche into a profit margin. But it's always. It's like Netflix. It's always teetering on the edge of you know it. It's a great idea until someone steals it. What they never imagined was that frigging homeland or was gonNA steal it right at home here? You you'll get some compound via new get some compound the everyone gets comp on me and then we're GonNa see what happens neck And we'll see what happens next next episode Whenever that traps in twenty twenty but in the meantime of course which tries to exploit home lenders weekend vagueness but he doesn't realize he's? He's dealing with Kaiser Soza well he didn't realize he's dealing with an actual social right. Gives you remember in the usual suspects in Kaiser Soza the myth that Ah Verbal kint tells in the FBI office is that the bad guys came into his house and held his family up to gun point. And said if you don't give up your territory where we're going to kill your family and he takes out his gun and shoots his wife and his two kids in the head and says now what are you GonNa do as an the next nation of how crazy and insane Kaiser Soza was and to be fair. That's kind of the social algae need to to be. You know it's an interesting question about the myth of sociopath sociopath. I mean it's an actual mental condition edition Having a discussion about the SOCIOPATHIC psychopathic. I'm not sure there's a clinical definition but I always felt that the central definition definitions should be that associate is at its core a human out human associations that is unable to would I wanna say unable it was say unwilling to form bonds with other humans but a psychopath is a is a sociopath ah whose inability to form social bonds stemmed from a psychological dissociation from reality essentially. I've created a universe universe of myself and that's why I will not allow myself to bond residents sociopaths who simply is unable to form the by now in that sense of psychopaths dangerous but a psychopath is also much more likely to be defeated because they associated associated themselves from reality wasn't that Homeland is a psychopath in that he is associated from reality in that in that sense that he does that. Imagine someone someone could be a threat to him or sociopath in that he is aware of reality but just does not feel the need to buy is the real question. I actually think he's a psychopath because I do feel that he is an but you know that's the thing. He's unaware of a reality. That could harm him because he's never ever experienced in that although at the same time they kept him in a little box most of his life right so he is a product of the evil hearts of the people who created him if people created him by enlarge is us as society. Well I don't know us as much as the what what I will say. Is Israel say. He was kept in a box which suggests he felt powerless. He felt powerless most most of his life and then once he had power. And it's the old you know this. I don't know if it's June up the myth that you know you can around opens ankle when their child and it will try to break from the rope but that at a certain point they'll give up and then when when there are an adult and they can more than easily break the rope. They won't even try because they already tried. Bitten the newer child and they were weakened. They don't realize they've got strong now. Homeland or arguably is a being that was kept in the room when weaker and has grown to this point where he doesn't even question his position because he knows it but now we're seeing that now. He thinks you know he realized it as he does. Kill of Obama needs kill. Madeleine power over them. He no longer feels we are Laura. See to me it was I think whatever he felt for Madeline and whatnot. I think that was real and I think he is capable of feeling attachment than emotion and because of the way he reacted when his quote unquote. Dr Father told him you were my biggest failure. The look on his face in that moment that it meant something thing to him so he's closed selloff doesn't allow himself to feel because of the pain he experienced but I I think he can feel and in that moment. The emotion that he is writing thing is incredulity in arrogance and and blinding rage at the fact that someone would even think that he would have have a weakness that with the you know the perceived betrayal on her part. And he's I go. Yeah well tell you what. I've learned that at a young age. That attachments are going to get you anywhere. So how dare you even think and then just as satisfaction of that moment where he at first walked dinners is completely being acquiescing to Butchers control and say. Hey what are you want. Let's figure this out. And it's all a cat and mouse game emily's waiting for this moment and I loved that when he does it he takes a moment to mourn his friend's death and then turns around and takes a moment to lick his his lips for delicious. This moment is that he has given butcher no out that he has one and then he turns around butcher says now and what. You're pushing the button. So you know doesn't matter and it doesn't matter because even he's thought about and he's planned ahead for. Yeah I know oh you are you. Don't get the when you think you get to win and even if you think you're going to opt out and pretend that it's a win. I'm not even going to give you that satisfaction. Oh that's so evil. Here's a question for you and it's honestly. This is the question the racks my mind. Do you think homeland save the Bait. No absolutely not and now. Here's questioned. beat the baby survived anyway. Oh but yeah. We don't know where that baby came from whether it was the thing they our home lenders. They know it's home. Landers baby you you think. The woman who is clearly repeatedly heaven the sexual relations with lander and the runner is just too dumb to even thinking after. And here's the crux of younger biscuit. That shows how dumb how how pathetic of a baby homeland or is. He doesn't even realize that's his kid. Because here's the thing they hold them. Oh you had a kid and it court so vitamins mother's Womb Yada Yada Yada but then you learn a lot and then he learns Ono we actually so the perfect act and the kid in little house in ten Dusky Ohio five upscale Ohio. It's the amazement art Uh for his kids to be at never even does them wait a minute I been putting my sperm in that lady. Maybe that baby is my baby. They never suggests 'cause obviously it's meant to imply that she had a kid with serious. He she got some sperm somewhere. But we never hear about a Mr Matt Line and we never hear that she got you know a procedure done honestly. The idea. That kid isn't his kid. Kid is utterly ridiculous. It is utterly ridiculous. That kid is not his so that kid is alive and homeland blender is just a moron. I think homeland is GonNa get this. Come up and why I think they're gonNA give. Redemption Art to in the deep deep is going to die horribly. That's fine but he's GonNa heal homeland or is he's killing. You know what what I think is going to happen because now now now that we're talking about it. I'm realizing that Home Lander has just Gained an ally that is maybe just as strong as him in his son. So now we're GONNA have to fight to home lenders. So what I see dealing is maybe killing baby helmet or you know Teenage Lander well except that might become a threat at home. Lander has a mop homeland or has a mom. Right shoulder wasn't raising a little steel box right. And so if we take Vogel Vogel bombs bombs words about if you raise the without their mom they become cruel in months. Oh Oh so you think he just because it's his father won't be wowed loud and want to do whatever his father does or where the heck was his father this whole time. Well that's true but he did when they when they when he tells them. Hey I'm your dad and this is flash the look on. Oh my God. My Dad's here. It wasn't a head Bernie with my laser is is that the look on his face. I smile oh well I well who wouldn't smell when you're much your day with laser. Is He went out for cigarettes and never came back. You know that's the I think that I think there's a lot more complexity of the story. Then we're even yes. They're breaking away from the from the from the books because you have to because if you just told the story in the books I have every nerds going to spoil it for everyone else. No one is going to get to enjoy Royat and the nerds themselves won't enjoy consistent. Well yeah that's what happened. That's right you know so. You have to change the book because we have to make this a new story because there's no sense in telling the same story the exact same way you know. I mean Shakespeare did it. People didn't see these plays all the time. Also go run. You could do Shakespeare show and you would come around to your town like once a month like oh no no this is good gotTa Woah. GotTa Watch this Macbeth. One and this is this is a good one and would all own would watch McFadden. Oh that was amazing. That was amazing. And then you wouldn't see it for another a couple of years. It was like the Disney fall. You know you wouldn't get Dumbo back except for maybe like ten years later five years take someone of Oh I got a Dumbo. It's really it's really fun And so when you're adapting a product like this you have to say it's not going to be in the vote for ten you you know and get people interested in this which means we have to take whatever the essence of the story develop it but then tell a completely different stories with that. No one knows what's going on. We've got hit the beat right away. That people are expecting you. GotTa it's like it's like it's like the jets you know you're gonNA wait if you're gonNA play. We took a little star in a jazz. Motif is still gotta hit the right note. Let me listen to a little star. Indeed if you don't go off on ref to let them know it's Jazz ben you just bring twinkle twinkle little star you know and that's up and down using scales vote in their stepping pay with the tempo because that's the nature of jazz nets nature of story. You know if if you don't tell a story with some change it it's going to get to be aboard story. No one wants you the story the same way every time because not for nothing. We don't remember the story the same way every story. That's really important to you and watch it again. You'd realize that parts that you thought were really important. Maybe weren't as important automaker and the line that you thought was important. Line was a throw away and maybe because it was a throw ways. What made it sit with? McHugh like where well to go back to CAJONES where PATSIES MOM's telling her to just so the line of way. Would you never see ten again. He says every girl in that room is going to be doing that book. Throw that line away and when she would throw that line in a way that certainly makes have more weight. Here's if you did a big swoon on it you wouldn't see it but then when you go and watch it again and in in your mind it's like I'm never see ten again and you put the soon in yourself. Oh she just do that way but it still has so much meaning so so much weight and so that's developing a comic book or or book or anything to a movie you know. We're going to do a remake. You have to look at those lines that were throwaways that and know why those store why don't throw away lines head so much meaning for people and then understand how that structure truth the story that you tell them that. So but yeah so. That's where we live at home. Lender wakes up a butcher and I guarantee you his. Here's my prediction for season. Two Electric Boat Load that Beijing staying alive Edgar coming to the blown up world world the balloon apartment the house at the end of it. And you know just say in the babysitting says yes. Yes I know baby up and carried off and mobile homes dead but they sell six hundred scientists man. There's a whole department and was retired at that point. He wasn't integral machine anyways. Edgar is not waiting for Omen that was cool with with homeland meeting his son. But the way more interesting moment was when butcher locks eyes with his was dead wife that he thought might be alive but truly really believed was dead and of course in that whole scene is a lot of story too because it's like issue there by her own choice or and if she here's here's the thing it's like it can have been consensual moment. It could've been a mistake or it could have been something but then something else happened and something else happened and now we're in a situation where she's that she's with she's raising brighter. You know right right. But maybe bright bird's not a complete and total jerk in this universe and regardless of what was pushed onto her because of the circumstance. And you know. She didn't want to leave but she had to leave. But that doesn't absolve her of of you know messing around and what caused all this so you can have sympathy or pity for us. It's not a whole lot. If it's a consensual messing around there was probably problems with the butcher relationship is nothing else we know. Butcher is not the nicest guy that's a point and any sort of flashback. We have gotten of their relationship has been with the rosy tinted glasses of butchers own own self justified memories. Exactly my friend. And that's where you get the crux of the biscuit and it's really mark is It's butcher what yeah. I'm really excited to see what happens. I'm glad that. And here's the thing I I guarantee you 'cause we see so could we've gotten a trailer now for season two. I think that frequent a train is in the hospital. Olivennes AH ventilator. I think that that starlight tells us oh yeah there was a big escape I came to help a train. Rain in the nutrients suddenly had a heart attack. Who knew and I'm keeping him I you know and I think that's the story and as far as the other guard hard? I I think the guards are gonNA say. I don't know what happened because again if you're some military washout who got got this Gig with and again guarding guarding non super powered prison. You know who they're not searching proper you exist for the limbaugh say oh no starlight was with them and they're waiting for a train to come in to cooperate. This story that I I don't know man. I don't followed happened I just suddenly all of us got blacked out. I think they may be got one of those superpower terrorists now and for some reason. I don't see a train ratting on them either because technically speaking they saved his life so I think that and this is where you get this season to be surprised. The price of this gets three seasons. And I'M NOT GONNA feel bad about it because I think they can pillow story into seasons. That has a dramatic crescendo. Oh albuque- we need the thirteen until someone things of what the third season's going to agree. You know it's like maybe you tell two seasons noncolored debt you know not everything needs a sequel that everything needs to be an ongoing. Let's spend some money to develop another good story. Or if you WANNA stay in this. I just started developing that third story. Here you know I guess I mean I'm sure they're thinking three seasons ahead in there planting seeds for the the next two when we get the next season you know you know. That's the problem with any kind of super powered universes once you introduce the idea of superpower. Suddenly the everyone's Suddenly reality changes because certain aspects of the laws of physics are changed and certain other aspects haven't and the the Once compound the thing you know I mean I mean again that is the real weakness of the business model. So when says sort of this well you know who can't wear that got it should care where the heck they got it right should be like. Oh my got this proprietary This proprietary secrets out there and anyone can create it because nothing nothing. I think it's not that hard I mean I'm not GonNa say it's not south engineer drug. Because I'm sure it's like wicked hard but again I'm not a chemist I or you know let alone a biochemist but I guarantee you twenty biochemist in a room with a significant Supply of compound. We we could start mass producing in the week. You know because it's like well let's take this. Let's see what's in it. Let's figure out. The chemical structure put electron microscope. Now sometimes you. You don't even know how to get the middle molecule to take that structure unless you know like some sort of proprietary process in what once you see what the structure is you. Can you can start report. Reverse engineer yet you look at what it does and then you figure out how it works but why don't you think that would be some sort of way like okay. You have to do this to this. Chemical in order to get the molecules to buy there might be some processed that's even hidden at this point. Well no wheels a process but at the same time it's a process that exist within the laws of physics so so anything about About how you you can use crisper DNA Kit which by on the Internet To create a cell all an amendment. That will start. You know spitting out some kind of organic molecule right but for what my point is it anything like say for example if someone would take like Ah Gumbo or a Roo. That made the Gumbo and pick out. It's integral parts. But they wouldn't be able to make the rule unless they knew that you had to put the butter in their first and then the flour and let it cook out until it changes color and then add the stock or water and then add the cream. You can have all the Oh hearts go into that well let me let me put you like this okay. So we have an ingredient. Let's say or whatever ruas basically just but I mean I know it's a soup stock so we have ten ingredient Rian second possibly beginning and there's an order in which it has to go in but we have an infinite number of people that can start cooking in a number of ways or let's say this mediums and we have twenty people who will start cooking in a dozen different ways you know at a dozen different temperatures in the In a it doesn't say who has some idea of how food is supposed to go together. Start with you cover. What why is nobody gets costs formula? Why do people have they? I mean not for nothing is coca. Cola's you don't make make Coca Cola because I mean simply put because I out no one's going to say it tastes like Coca Cola if it's in a coca cola BOP unless it's in a Coca Cola pop so when you make so when you make you know Dr Cola or Sam's Colo or whatever you're gonNa make yet yeah or or shouting mountain which is these Sam's Club version of mountain or mountain lightning or any of the other groups actually Mountain is the staffers anyway. Mountain lightning is the A sense of urgency. But you we know what's in it because so much of the taste of Coca Cola is the Bible comes in you know trying to make something that tastes like Coca Cola will only taste like Coca Cola whereas if you're GonNa make a cola drink you're better off taking that Basic Cola formula and and then making it slightly different your own so they will actually let the taste of Sam's Cola or like the taste of shoprite right cola or stop and shop or Dr Koehler or any other colour group that you're making it up but not because that's really what it it is but just because it's easier to to to just make a knock off that tastes different than to try and pass it off as a real thin. How ever if your job was to make the real thing I think making more Coca Cola would not be hard? I hear you because it is literally just US cooking a several ingredients that you can determine fight with several spectral analyses figuring out what were to put him in. And then make your Coca Cola and when you once you recognize the idea that the presentation is half of the taste of Coca Cola. You could make something that could could be exactly chemically identical Coca Cola and and then put it in a coca cola anyone's who will that tastes like oh But that wouldn't be Coca Cola to people you know so as far as recreating this ride. Yes I guarantee you. Soviet super soldiers were Russian. Super soldiers are going to be a real easy thing to get because again like when can point out homeland or isn't that bright and honestly he probably we picked Adrian because Adrian was desperate. In fact I guarantee you him bring a drink into the seven at the start was part of his point in. which is that idea that I needed someone who couldn't who needed to be here? I needed a partner who I could trust couldn't portray so so these are all mark my words more revelations we're GONNA get next. I could see it okay. Anyway we're going a bit long here. We're already oh. We're over an hour for this episode. We work for the last one to these last two pretty good you know when they were really good Addison into our movie. You could just watching enjoy but let's talk about the final. So let's wrap up this episode miles with our Hardest Working People in this episode episode and then Vermeille for this episode. I'M GONNA say mine goes to STARLIGHT MOM and Kucic but overall for the show. I think you're right. He deserves the eventual Not for the hardest working person in this show say in his ball state Kripke may be Stanley. He may be a guy who has a vision. Your Thomas said. He has a vision. He gets other people to make it happen. that it doesn't mean that Stanley Thomas Edison weren't doing the work right and and to the point of how many great acting performances that were in this season You know it has a lot to do with the director creating the environment for you to do that and then guiding you you to find the decisions that that character has to make to arrive at that scene And and a good director can cause a lot of that to happen for it to have happened so so often in this show speaks to have director He is or producer. Disease Producer is an artist whose medium in his other artists. And so I think that that could be a nice bit just some fun moment here. I got to say I I WANNA say I wanNA give a little shout to black noir. The character just when they start playing the piano. It's really lovely. You know that the accurate Accu plays an active Nathan. Mitchell is the guy in suit and I don't know he's actual you know keenest but I just love that. Let's see the person who plays the piano pianist. Yes it's it's delightful in it's wonderful role I like the idea of just like we don't know who he is or anything about him. All we know is that he's got a deep well of experience eh cultural knowledge and you walk where it comes from or what. He's about He's got so much that he knows but he hardly ever expresses himself. I feeling year kind of that. I get the feeling he is meant to be and of a counterpoint to the female 'cause we know other female can't speak and black borders they see how you know they both have human level powers but at the same time you know the peak of those oppose thing and I get the feeling that we're with Black Nawar where looking at someone who is maybe something of a Something I know the taskmaster kind of character where he just a massive massive amounts of knowledge. He can't help it at the same time. He's also trying to look for Polka in which we see when he has that very ritualized moment where he's making is eat where there's this whole ritual. Because he needs to to be centered in the same with the female when she starts you know doing the painting her nails really becoming human again that. That's that's what makes you be humid so dependent. We're GONNA see that in fact I'm not going to mark my words on this but if I'm GONNA go out on a limb honest it wouldn't surprise is new. We find that the female and her brother both at the counseling as became black noir and she became The female and chemical And it wouldn't surprise me if the idea is that that essentially they brought in her brother to be the black black noir but that Kimiko Kimiko is a person that homeowner targeted to give her this to. Let's see with that. It's possible the although we we hear that bought doesn't do it with adult so it doesn't necessarily work out in less and less. Her brother was given the chemical as a child nope and just developed as a super advanced child and then eventually got brought into the seven when he became when he mature short. You know so there's ways you can do it and then maybe it's not quite as random as it seems when with a homeland doing but yet there's a lot not going on the prejudice courtesy. I love that scene and again. That's not the actor. That's not anything. It's the scene which again goes back to the writers of a piece of Rebecca Rebecca Shannon's nine in alcohol. Saunders and Eric Crappy Pizza standing above everyone saying making good naked show. Maybe the job though I just gotta get that show. I mean this is just. It's just the anomaly acted thing it's amazing what can you if you have like eight billion dollars to dominate unimpaired. Marketplace is Amazon does indeed have to pay taxes. You know when you're lucky. Yeah uh-huh okay my so yeah so I think we're we're we're at an Kusak. He's Amazing Air Kripke. I think it's for the also I mean I know I wanted to do a whole award show episode. But we're going to get the chance to do that. You know. I had big dreams for these podcasts. That I think we covered all all the other big ones. All important was as we're going along at some point or another We may never have. But that's where he's the invisible man and that maybe maybe is. Why Huey Jack Quaid may really be hardest. Working men job is visible visible man. He's never seen well. Not only that. But sometimes you need a piece of bread for the Burger to work against work opposite of so you can notice how good the Burger. It's kind of like the straight man that everybody gets to have this wild character and still have. It'd be somehow grounded in reality because there's a real character standing next to them that we've done so much. This is such a great show. I can't wait for the season to to start. I don't know if we're going to cover it or not. We may be onto completely different show by the boys come back but but if it does I think we we should You know Interspersed in between the whatever. We're working on at the time you know. Maybe we'll do a special but or maybe were started up again the listeners. Tell us what you think. In the meantime how can people find thank you or they can email me. Mas Manzoor at email gmail.com or find me on facebook under Mas Manzoor. That's M. O. W. M. A. N. Z. W. O. R..

Chris godwin and now rich is says he j just drain pox feeling it because he just talked to juwan howard here on the rich eisen show.

I saw during the our vacation last week of name. A movie quote Drop movie line. That only diehard fans. That film will instantly okay five on monday. We'd love the idea so much. We said we're going to do it every day of the week. Then del tufo went yesterday. It instantly almost go by and and that's because you've got six very out that'll be coming up this hour that'll be coming up this hour booth but we turn to To our guest line. Our guest hotline Once again Yesterday we had the general manager of the tampa. Bay buccaneers jason. Light on the show. And now we have one of the best wide receivers in the business. he's in super bowl champion now and he's about to go hit the free agent market. Potentially he is. Chris godwin back here on the rich eisen show. How have you been chris man. I've been great after having no absolutely I got a one of the many reasons why i wanted to have you on. is because The nfl films I guess snippet or Bite if you will from the super bowl of you and your fiancee celebrating on the turf together. That that's that's i live for stuff like that. I live for journeys. Travelled together Whether it's athletes and parent or athletes and and you know partner or future spouse in your case i love it. You and your fiance were celebrating. What was that like for you chris. Man it was It was unbelievable. You know like that just like you know. The commission of the journey that we've had together You know we've been together like ten years now so like you know. She's been with me through thick and thin you know. And that's my writer. At diet. For peter share. That would be on the field. It was a combination. All of that is unbelievable. I know you're miked up. And i just you know i ate it up and and so now that you have gotten super bowl i mean what what does it feel like to be a super bowl champion. Chris i like. I like the sound of that man every time i hear you know i just. I just get excited. 'cause you know like as a kid right for the me You know my two biggest goals were to make nfl and to be a super bowl champion. and to have accomplished that You know both of those. By the end of my fourth year Is is such a blessing either because there are so many talented guys that you know that haven't had the opportunity to to get to this point and the blessing. of course. i'm sorry. I didn't mean to cut you off there. I thought you were completing so so You know obviously michigan men like myself like completing two people like you. what was that. Like to be On the end of tom brady's passes play calls in the huddle with him all year. Long chris I was so dope mad. But i just watch my entire life and be seeing it from afar and watching the greatness and then now having the opportunity to be part of that you know like now i'm a part of that history It was so cool. You know and he was. He was so different from I really anything that. I was hoping you know i was just kinda like he was going to be like. This stiffer like just ball ball ball at the time you know. And and don't you all. He loves the game of ball and he put so much into it. But like off this deal you know. He's he's a great guy you know he. He really just came in and fit in as one of the guys you know cracking jokes to just the whole nine and you have nothing but respect for a guy that so accomplished but comes in and works as hard work harder than everybody else and How does that permeate the locker room. How does that permeate the huddle house. How do you pick up on on what he was putting down. Chris godwin. yeah it's infectious man You know when you when you got there you go to battle and and and your your. Your leader is putting in everything he has. You know he's gonna give it his all you. You feel obligated to step up in answered the bell you know we. We're going at every game expecting to win. Knowing that you know we had all the pieces that we needed to be successful it just was going to take some some growing throughout the process and you know we went through our growing pains and and You know some people were doubting us but the great thing is that the men in the locker room never wavered. You know like. I said we have full belief in everybody that we had that we had the piece that we needed to go out and make the run that we did well. When did it all come together. Chris godwin the the sense of might is. Now that we're looking back on. It could have been After the first quarter of that first game against the chiefs week twelve after tyreek hill had a a quarter to remember But the way the rest of that game went into a bye week out of which you never lost again will. Is that it or was there. Another a ha moment for you and the team go where there was one one specific moment but i would say like right around that time period was when i would say things started to kinda like click right. We had like at that point. We had our backs up against the wall. And i think you know he made a good point in that. First she's game you know they got up on really fast and and the teams are good books teams of the past. You know very well would have laid down. Then just like you know like they. They got this time. You know like they're just a better team but the the fight that we had in that game to to come back and have a chance to really you know put ourselves up to to win that game and versus the defendants who both champions. I think they gave us a lot of confidence that we needed. As a as a team that had been together for the first year really You know china put it all together and then you have the bye week and then you have atlanta where we started off. You know slow again. It's literally like we're playing for our playoff lives. You know that we we treated that game and the rest of them as club games and it's like if that's the mentality you have then literally feels like winter. Go home for you and we had. We had to approach it. That with super bowl champion wide receiver pro bowler. Chris godwin here on the rich eisen show up so now it's about decisions Let's talk decisions chris. I one up If i have you have to make one choice here I give you a choice of going horseback riding devon white or tequila shots with tom. Brady which one do which one which one would you. I'm gonna go on the horseback riding my boy way. I never been on a horse. Why not let's go. Let's go ride your. But i mean you know riding. An animal is not the same as just you know. Throw him back. Avocado shots and clearly. You know there's a support system with tampa To to deal with maybe too many of those shots as we saw tun of support here for you. i think. I think we've done that. Let's give a patrol ride a little a shot. Okay let's do that now then What by the way. Great use of shot right there. Okay now let's talk about. I guess the more important decision the more life changing one in front of you free agency. How are you approaching this right now. Chris godwin really i. I really taking it day by day because like display right like it's It's out of my aunt at this point at least in terms of Until march nice right if the team decides the franchise events. Then that's what it is you know. And that's what it would be But obviously in I'm looking for some security looking. You know for an actual deal you know and i guess we'll cross that bridge get there but I love it here man. You know i love. I love the team. The city love my guys. Love going to war battle with them So i guess we'll we'll have to see how it plays out. Now i had. I had the gm on yesterday jason light. He said nothing but glowing things about you. Has there been conversation between management in your and your representation yet chris. Yeah yeah. I believe so. And i think i think those conversations will continue to overtake happen. You know i like. It's no surprise to me that that Interesting mutual on both ends but at the end of the day. We all realize that it's the business you know. And in the same way that they're gonna approach make the decision that's best for them as a as a business as an organization you know i gotta do the same thing and all of this out of respect all right and is it possible that Have you enlisted the help of somebody who Wearing the number who that you used to wear to potentially lobs in lob something in to say. Hey let's see what we can do to keep fourteen year. Anybody never spend i. I have not. But i would imagine that there have been conversations like that. You know we we all like everybody. They're like so much respect for each other and you know we had a great working relationship that You know i. I don't know if there's much lobbying happen at this point. Okay chris godwin here on the rich eisen show. Let me get into that. Actually the The the jersey stuff. Did you hear what michael pittman had to say indianapolis this week about his number eleven and carson wentz. Jiro that i heard about a little bit. Okay that might have crossed your ear gate What what did you think of that. here in for michael pittman Again he's a second year player and we also carson. Wentz is not been with the team. What did you think about him saying. I'd i'd like to keep my number eleven chris. What about that. All i i thought was You know like. I'm i'm not surprised you know not not too many guys really want to go there number And i think each situation is very different. You know. I think the situation is different from the one that i was at And that's not to say that. Either one of them is the right one. I just think that like for me. It made the most sense for me to give up my number. You know what. I mean and like just like of respect for tom for what he's done and you know open that maybe one day that will get that same respective later on down the road You know in in in my he may not think that's the way you know which is cool and also is building that carson might not want number eleven and so then it's not really story at all no. I know that. Chris apparently according to michael that that that carson reached out to ask for it and then said yeah change it anyway after being told no. It's one of those situations you know where you don't want you want something but you don't wanna make a big deal of it after the other person pro kind of forces you to maybe make a big deal of it you know and it's one of those things traffic to avoid conflict. I'm a conflict of order in real life. That's so i kind of understand that but did did. Did tom ever ask for it or did you just coughed it up chris no we. He asked lord And we had we had a. We had a really good conversation to And i think that was It was good though because that was like one of our first conversations. You know we're talking face. I'm about just a bunch of different things and and we're going over it and on and they got the it'd be it just made the most sense and you know looking back on it if You know some more. Say if you give. Tom number twelve you go with them and fourteen. Y'all want a super bowl. I do that every single time without question chris. I'm not questioning your decision. Making what so ever okay. I'm just wondering how it how it went down did something Other than the jersey exchange hands. Chris godwin did something other than the jersey number exchange hands. Oh no no no no that it was it was it was really out of respect though Because i i don't know like i said i would i think for me like I think i'm big on on. Just you know doing things the right way and and to be a good person even though And i really do believe that like before reason and you know like i said hopefully down the road you know if i'm looking for you know in a situation like you was that i would get that same respect. Then it's all right. Why would they came full circle. Pay it forward and now you'll be looking down at your hand at some point seeing that big shiny object and it's like you made the right decision. Chris godwin that the bad bingo. You know. I mean that is just going to be a great great moment for you did brady Bruce arians told me a couple minutes. Left here with chris godwin Bruce arians told me that brady spoke to the team night. Before can you Will pull back the lid on that a little bit. What did he say to the team. Night before the super bowl chris. Yeah you know eat. It was It was really really impressive to watch like that. You know the culmination of all that right. 'cause he you know he's talking about the season you know here and there but he's never really been much like a like a pre game you know raw guy using a definite lavar. Take care of that I like throughout the entire week of the super bowl. You know he was texas. You know like those two weeks you know get tired two weeks like almost every night you know with different Different film clips differently motivational stuff. And just really just like god like we were made for this moment. We're going to win the game. You know and and just just constantly feeding that confidence to us that we know that the is not too big for the guys that we have you know and and i think that that really just not only just like how intensive among wise and how confident he was but like that. It's supposed to just how confident we should be the team. You know like we earned the right to be there and we shouldn't have gone all we're happy to be going on now with the approach. Said we're gonna win this game. You know so. You're saying every night for two weeks before the super bowl of pops up a swing known center on your phone was a group text from tom. Brady essentially to what to to to a whole bunch you the whole team with what movie clips phrases. What was what was it. Really the mainly the skill position. Guys running back their receivers quarterbacks And just different like you know like definitely motivational stuff. Like whether it's like like from himself directly are going clips like reminders of like you know when they do xyz. You know we do this. You know what. I'm saying and just like just like reminder that like that he's constantly working and that we should be confident in ourselves as a group to go in like regardless of hoover. Going against what we're facing you know a as big as the task was that we're we're going to be good. You're no well you know chris. What about you as. I finish up. What about you because at some point. You know we're assuming brady's knocking gonna play tilles one hundred and five And or you will be on for whatever reason maybe on another team You know it could be multiple millions of dollars worth of reasons but So at some point you know you will have that challenge in front of you. Do it without brady so long story short. What about you your goals for you. Chris godwin in your career here. That's a great question. i mean for me. I think the goal is always. Do you know what we've just done on. I think the more that i'm entrenched in in this game and you know the more fortunate that that i have to continue to play the more i realized how important is from the to win You know like. I've been you know like last year we had a decent year But it wasn't good by you. Know our standards. You know like seventy nine but and i you know i all pro season but did it give me anywhere near the satisfaction that winning the super bowl did you know. Even my numbers were down You know so like for me. It's doing all that. I can to make sure that whatever team by more than the best position to win you know and and along the way learning from the tom. Brady's they'll mike evans just from like picking their brains and allow you to absorb all that information. So i can pass that out to you. Know whatever teammates have moved forward because at the end of the day or just kind like recycling information impact no like your generation to keep for the game and i wanna be a part of that and all. I wanna continue to be a champion while. Hope you get what you want chris. I imagine it's to stay put where you are Where you like to be were tom. Brady's your quarterback and and you'll have an opportunity to maybe you know. Box cameron braid out for the next trophy. Toss from boat to boat. You know You know like a tight end break. I mean my god great grab. That was impressive. So hopefully you get. Hopefully you get to do that yourself. You know and Did you own them second. Did you drop your tj. Jefferson my social media mesa just past. Did you try your phone in the water at the vote by phone for the ball. The bottom of the tampere river. I pulled up my phone to go live. Which i never do you know and we're not do anymore. And like we're standing on affirmative vote and like at the corner by like see. Scotty start the kind of stumble. And then my adam man like i'm i i can't let go into the water you know. We can't get another scotty. We lose to buy it in the process. You know all got out of my hand and went into the water and it was like slow motion. I was normal and like looking like there's like a police boat next to us their white watching. They're like no i'm like but like what are you get that what's up and it went down really fast. It was so bad but You know my my my folks ragging looking out for the very appreciative of that walker. You could shout out but That doesn't bode well for the next trophy. Toss chris. i mean no know is is. Detroit is much bigger than my phone. Okay okay but equally valuable in your mind. I'm sure More bible it's a lot easier to get lupone and there's a new lombardi so ask ask him the poll question before going out the door. This is perfect for chris. Scott brian. that's right.

That's almost six years ago now. Can't believe that. I actually was recording videos on my phone. Also i have a bunch of these foo foo l. in that i'm just afraid to find out. The rest of them are all fake they all have one of them's fake all of them or one's real wa about this one's real somebody faked three others to make to make it more a little more juice.

Godwin man look if he coughed up. That jersey. for nothing you know. Brady's got his back and he's like i said like i said there's two ways for the box to basically tell tom we understand you still not that they need to. I don't think that's necessary. But there's two people to pay himself and godwin. Hey tom we understand. Godwin gets paid. And then you we gotta figure out. Let's figure out an extension for you so we can you can. You don't have to answer all these questions. If this is your last year role that sort of stuff go for it and then we can reconfigure the cat by expanding it out in into the future. I think that makes total sense. How about godwin saying. He doesn't think he need that. Needs to be said from brady to or braves already done it sure. Hey jason i've been. You can pay.

I just not so. That's the last one last. One this is specifically for you got wasn't ready we go and says What is white. Men can't jump because this is a very ron shelton. -sition of movie quotes here. Also playing my personal hits hana's something up from you've got mail nachos in here because we didn't no no no no no. We've never got any of those. We'll say jim outside bit outside. Put this on a pole. What what was your exact phrasing of that was your league would not be as great. A movie without bob euchre. He made the movie. Bob euchre made the movie major like. I don't know how you put that you know the copy in a twitter poll but the movie would not be as great as it is. I- bucur made. I mean like if you put into words. Bob euchre made major league. Great movie that it is. I don't know majoring. Great without bob euchre now. That's not no i mean. Let's say. Jim braude nature league was his wisdom was. It was an excellent sports moving for me. It is not top five. It just doesn't. And i know that's viewed as a heartache. You know what number one is for me. It's hoosiers that right. I love the natural just as much as anything else and obviously Even now that you know the hoosiers is faker than rudy. It's still still. I still say it's a great sportsman. Great sports movies. I'll repeat it again here just for the sake of it. Great sports movies have you on the edge of their seat about About the journey right and then great. Sports movies have great sports scenes in them And also at the very end of it At the very through line has gotta be a great father son story a great you know child parent relationship. Field of dreams is what that that that puts field of dreams on that map. It has all okay A major leagues just not in the top five me. Just isn't i'm sorry to say no that's fine. You know. I got two more off the top of my head. But i think i could the natural. I can't get enough of the natural. I love that movie spoiler. The he takes the takes the money in in the actual book. It's based on bernard malibu book roy. Hobbs takes the money and they're like we can't have robert particular money interesting. You know unbelievable. We'll brindley in that film. Thirty five years might not be lawful and we're gonna speak. I'll tap dance while he looks up whether he was younger or older and guests. How old he was. Yeah gotta guess. We'll food was saying cocoon was before the natural. So i'm going to say we'll for bramley was like fifty four in the neck. I'm gonna say he's forty two. I'm with Okay so came out in eighty four. So he was born in thirty four so we would have been probably forty. Nine is a natural still much younger than tom. Cruise right now. You believe it. Will i i for my movie quotes. I was all i was looking up For grimly at the end of absence of malice which is a old steine mike. Paul newman sally field film about sally field reporting on paul newman and whether anyone that digit well i know. It's very arcane deep dive but the end of the film is where will for bramley shows up and he dominates a scene at the end dominates. Just a great seen. He's not in the movie up until the very end of here. I was going to pull something from that. But i'm like i can't just do the wilford grimly in the natural five years older than tom brady right now. I will say one thing right here right now. Twenty six say that one more so during the filming of the dacha wilford brimming with forty nine. Tom brady's almost forty four. So that's five years older than tom brady right now. There are two things. I will never tire of on this show. Two things will never tire of on the show. One is wilfred brindley. Eight compound by tom brady for this old and a movie where he looked like he was ninety million years old but he really was thirty five. Brady's i cannot get enough of that and then but that we've been doing that for. We've been doing that for a long time. And the other thing. I can't get enough of and is is something very recent forgot. When it comes to ball schori's a wise. Everybody ridge is listening by late out there man. Will you know you're plana an extra. Will you please clap for blake. Thank i got more coming. What blake blake. I can't get enough. And i just realized i realized we're about to take a break for final segment. We'd get to play that day. Let's take a break. We'll wrap up this show rest. The weeks going to be great. You guys have got a fantastic fill in hosts with dynamite guest list. We'll talk about that coming up nicknamed showtime come from my godfather troy hawking in my dad but really him they walking play. And i'll make the plays and stuff like that and that it always. It was showtime when field into. They always used to call me. Show thomas the troy hawkins. That is a name. I have not heard in a while. That's a twins connection with your dad. Right yes pretty much. He came up a little bit after my dad and my dad took him under his wing and then with rolling having a great career replayed in twenty one years in the big leagues. I mean he played the forever. It seemed like and he stayed in touch them forever. He's still comes to a lot of my gain even now and he's someone that has been a great another great mentor for me. Okay patrick Look i appreciate you calling in here greatly. And i appreciate the tax exchange that i had with you the other day where you were gentle in rejecting my suggestion to give you a new nickname of the patch. I really appreciate that. It was a good idea. Got a plane now. The nicknamed possible as i at that point. So it's okay great so you're saying middle second use. You're saying that it's not a judgment on the actual creativity of the nickname. It's just you attempting to be humble tampering down any of the accolades right now. Because you're focused on winning. Is that what you're saying in general. I mean it's it's all about the football call about the team and so i know that the nicknames are cool thing to do with the tulsa comedian everything. That's around right now but for me if all budgets being teammate and someone that's just a part of this organization a part of a team that wants to win so if you had an ego let's just let's just again. Let's put it in about you. You have any ego. You don't care about being humble. You're just you're just pounding your chest nickname of the patch. You like it name came out. And i'm just going to keep it at just patrick right now. Being polite you being i appreciate. That was fun with the patrick man. I tried and i failed miserably once again. I'm gonna give up that ghost. I'm gonna give up that ghost tell someone else to say. All the pats and match of the world. I'm waiting for the show up. Shine out and see if you deserve it.

The baseball tonight. Scoreboard welcome to a special baseball tonight. Scoreboard with the playoffs being dark for a couple of days here, we decided that we're going to reach out to our friend Adnan Virk the host of the Sinophile podcast ESPN's college football coverage on Saturdays, baseball tonight, just about every other show that we have at the at the network and and we got a Bleacher tweet the other day, and the Bleacher tweeter asks us about the best baseball announcers, it got my brain going, and I thought, you know, well, let's get adnia because that ends well school these well versed to give your top ten and of course you know what? It's your top ten. So you get to set the parameters. I love it BUSTER. Listen, I love nothing more than lists. You know how much I love baseball shipping your podcast. I still have a recover from the browbeating I took from not having the sandlot higher on my list. When was. His favorite movies, but listen, you're right to me. Baseball is timeless. It is our favorite sport, and I love the fact that the soundtrack of our youth is often what what makes the game, so great. So I think if these voices, I think those great plays in baseball street and this is the parameter I set for myself. It'd be too difficult to include all the guys that we work with like the John Sean b.'s day Fleming's map Bhaskar Shen and Adam Amine. So I see, you know what I'm gonna take out show called contemporaries with one glaring exception, which I will explain when we get to it. Okay. Well, let's let's get to your top ten number ten red barber. There. It is. The data, of course these. Yeah, I was gonna say that of course was red barber calling, Roger Maris's sixty first home run. I thought go ahead knowing the fact that somebody was about to win five thousand dollars, but go ahead. Go ahead Ed in downtown thing. I was going to say there's a great call which normally you're used to these hysterical people, but that's red barber. He's just he's just laying out which TV and radio term for letting the audience, you know, listen to the natural sound and just positive, letting free when I think right Barbara take a old timey baseball, right? You think of those old newsreel videos in black and white and has a great day for baseball. Epochs failed in Jackie Robinson steps of the blight. I think red Barbara old school baseball, and he's been a part of so many great memories obviously with the dodgers one follow on that I got sand, and I've heard a lot of calls in a red barber, heard a lot of his play by play in in. You can find it on YouTube. That to me was one of the worst calls. One of the biggest moments ever know. We're going to go with this idea here. What is really have the best malls. We'll just have a call from one of these guys. Maybe there's. Number nine. Harry callous. Joe vets, ROY. Philadelphia Phillies two thousand eight. Skirt case as much Philadelphia institution as gino's in pats and cheese steaks. Harry Kallis is synonymous with Philadelphia, Phillies baseball. That was the call, of course, two thousand and ended along drought, not only for the Phillies, but just for the city of Philadelphia, which had not had a major champion in the four major sports. I also love his call. Michael Jackson, of course, all those home runs the greatest baseball. I made Harry Cal is the guy. And men people have stories about Harry Kallis. It's funny because when you hear stories about Vince gully, they're all kind of the same point. He's so nice boys, so polite not for Harry callous. Like here. I mean, people loved his personality, but they different type of personality events Scully for sure. And I think the best will says, yeah, and I think the best part of that call specifically that final call of the Phillies winning the World Series is that he said, I don't know maybe eight words, and it took him like twenty one seconds to get them all out. Just that very deliberate delivery is what made callous. So so great. I think number real Ernie Harwell right hander against the right end of the outfield is straight up in deep on field. Is the d. h. today weighing this drive to laugh that one is long. Two ways in that first pitch with his twenty ninth home run of the year while one of my best friends might kiss went to college together at Ryerson. He was a huge Troy. Tigers fan grew up in Windsor Ontario, just across the border. And so he got me into Ernie Harwell. It's an obviously. I know the name is great, but it's interesting BUSTER, whatever. I hear our buddy anchors area do his Brock Meyer impression is show Jim, Brooklyn. Elliot, see, you know, in many was it sounds kind of like early Harwell. It's just as sweet voice listen to. And everybody I think feels that their candidate Ernie Harwell. He also has one of the best broadcasting bits, but vice ever heard, which is he told my friendship police years ago when you're first starting at everyone's gonna hate ya, everyone's going to criticize it. 'cause you're not as good as the other guy, but here's the key after five years. It doesn't matter if they like you. It doesn't matter if they hate you. They just get used to you number seven. Tom cheek to balls and two strikes on it. Here's a pitch on the way a swing and a belt. Well, play back. Series. Picks a boom in the ninth inning in the Blue Jays every in this World Series champions touchable, you'll never hit a bigger home in your life. Why there was one thought BUSTER when Josh offer this idea with a maybe with the top calls of all time rather than just the top sponsors. But I figured Tom cheek that's synonymous it's one of the great calls of all time. The Joe Carter walkup and Bluejays ninety three and also what else you're listening. I'm allowed one Homer picks of the voice of blues for so many years. I'm gonna get Tom cheek in there. Just a wonderful man. He was genial to all friendly love baseball. I had a great call that that call Tim is right there. And then tell me about the first time you got to meet him. We don't. I met him back when I was in Toronto. Obviously, what to school there, and I was covering the Jays for the score television network, and it's very intimidating because everybody sees him and you say, God, I'm going to be one of these favelas idiots revere, and you look up to and he actually saw me made eye contact. You have a warm smile. So I said, I can go over there. And before I could tell how much he meant to me how much idolize his work. He said, I've seen your kid doing a good job, keep it up, and I just said, I'm about to faint melts right now. It's good enough for me if God takes. Me out top chief of a good kid do the good job. I tell people all the time that I was more nervous when I met Ned Morton. Who was the the voice of the Red Sox on radio someone? I felt like I learned baseball from I. I was more nervous when I met him at age, twenty five. Then it was any player ever like I was like, petrified. And I'm surprised after I met him in the the nature of of how a few. So I was that he didn't get some sort of restraining order out on me. That's how they're saying it was for me. BUSTER between letting somebody know how much you'd Meyer the revere and not scaring them. Number six, Mel Allen. As a. Listen Mel, Al. How about that? Do you think about this week in baseball and all the great calls over the ears. Again, this is in the guy that I grew up with, but you've heard somebody great place for the ears and heard about Mel Allen in? No, he's wonderful. Announcer Mel Allen is my guide number six, and he was the voice of this week in baseball, of course with that unforgettable music. And whenever I finished his scoreboard, I always have Mel Allen in my head when you know have a great day. Everybody. Five. Dan Shulman to two slider, grounded out to second. Go ties scouted. The throat of I and Tom glavin has become baseball's twenty third, three hundred game winner being embraced by teammates in the first base dugout. Now he's popped up onto the field and another standing ovation from those who have remained here in Chicago. Well, this is the choice here. BUSTER? Is it listen? I'm not going to include contemporaries because it's too difficult to clue them all. But I make an exception with Dan Shulman because he predates me enough. I think enough at ESPN and I grew up listening to them again being in Toronto, Harring up all those years. And he's been such an influence on me online at call as in loving baseball that I'm including Dan Shulman obviously much better than I. You haven't done it. I baseball them for so many years, but seriously, he's one of the great voices ever in baseball history. Yes, seven years in and I can say this sort of is is from across a broad spectrum. So I'm not going to question one person in one year getting. Award, but I gotta tell you every year when they would hand out Emmys and Dan was not nominated at always surprise me. Yeah, especially when you talk to people who a love broadcasting and be LA baseball. Dan, is that perfect mix of both? You don't have to love the sport depreciate Dan. And conversely, you don't have to care about the mechanics of broadcast into this guy, calls it break eight, and he's even better on radio and TV, which is even harder skillset. Number four, Harry Carey. Bye. Damon's cooley. Well, he's one of the funniest about says of all time. We know that I mean, endure so much losing his beloved cubs. We had to get Harry Carey in this list. It's unfortunate subways BUSTER because if Harry Carey in the will Ferrell impression comes right away, but he's been so lampooned and satirized by people. You don't appreciate what a good announced. He was all those years beyond the humor. So Harry Carey has gotta get his due at number four. Number three. Bob euchre Bruins down to their final out down now up to Christian yelich hera's yell at Sam. He has. They booming. Got it. All. Four big home run. The pick Ryan. Great calls by the way, the Josh Beckett picked a Bob euchre because his energy and his who's Yasmine is unparalleled. People know about the humor, obviously major league Mr. Belvedere, etc. But Kim Kirch in our friend BUSTER, who knows baseball and was as much as we do says euchre. If you look at just calling a game is as good as anybody who's ever lived in terms of the format of it. And sometimes like I said, because of the humor if you'll realize how good euchre is, but a guy who loves baseball knows baseball course play baseball and is incredibly self deprecating when he's in the booth. And I love the fact that we the brewers playing deep into this postseason. He's getting a lot of attention as works, getting a lot of attention. Very cool. In and Adnan you said you liked the calls that I picked there. You know, you were bashing some of the mice elections earlier than some of these guys have more material out there than others. If there was one guy I was gonna make sure I got right. It was Robert m. f. euchre come on number two. M. f. euchre I love it. Number two has been skelly. Here that has been so improbable, then possible has happened. I just, I mean, listen, he's an absolute legend, right? They'll people are appalled BUSTER, their gnashing, their teeth, and I'm not putting it number one, but he's an absolute institution when it comes to baseball and broadcasting and a voice like honeysuckle and in a sport that is one without a clock. Vince Kelly is the guy that remains timeless. He's the best. Yeah, I'm not gonna ask you to explain why have been number two until we hear from number one number one. Jack buck. And we'll see you. He's the best, and I'm so glad Josh pick that call. You know, as a young man growing up in Canada, the baseball World Series, the seduced him more than any other was nineteen Ninety-one. Two teams, the twins and Braves that went last two. I one run games, all of them incredible pitching in game seven, Jack Morris. They win it and sacked, fly Dan glad the scores. And of course that game six Kirby Puckett who've been struggling mightily makes a tremendous catch and then hits at home. Run in Joe bucks book. Maybe one day will be on this list as well. I love Joe's word, but he talked about his dad and he said, you know, brilliant that call was. He said that World Series was a tough one for my daddy was not having a great time with Tim McCarthy did not have chemistry. Jack was realizing he was struggling a little bit, but he 'cause you're appreciate how tough that call was. He goes there in the Metrodome where every has was Homer Hanky, which are white. The baseball is of course white, and you've got to clear the plexiglas and he said a lesser announcer would have been much safer with that call and just sit pocket with a drive to let looks like it's going back. Track walks every because his dad nailed it with about the ball hasn't even left yet. He just knew it and went right to the essence of the mobile, which is we'll see tomorrow night. It's it's my favourite call ever in baseball history. When you look at the moment at what he said, he's got that great muscular Susie is gravitas to it also called football. Also, very funny. Jack buck was the best Paul Rudd who's a good friend of Joe box was asked Jack, how like it's beginning to answer. He said a lot of cigarettes brandy and you'll be fun. Real quick before you go ahead and then look at, you know, broadcasting and understand the art of broadcasting far better than I ever would. I'm trained as a writer, technically speaking, what to Jack buck do really well as a broadcaster. I think he was able to convey the moment which is a hard thing to put into words. But I think oftentimes as an shift to pick out when the beat you're going to be a win, the moment will change. You know, baseball is such a conversational sports unite can be having a conversation, but then a great announcer consents. Okay. The moment here is about to come to us and we've got to Elham elevate with that certain precision of a Swiss clock. And I think the jackpot when you listen to him, he knew when the moment was there and then he delivered on the moment. I mean, you've got to have a great call that matches the play. You see, you know, go crazy folks. Go crazy in the Smith home run. And while the great moments ever baseball history, Josh, of course, pulled the VIN Scully college. She is bucks. 'cause equally famous, equally brilliant. He said, I don't believe what I just. Saw repeated twice. One guy was in disbelief. One guy was saying she has gone under the two greatest baseball announces of all time. That's awesome. And I really appreciate you taking the time to do this ad and always great to hear your perspective. Thank you. Thank you, bust your. Thanks, Josh. Appreciate your boys.

Yes, this is Dan Patrick, our two on this Friday, Marconi Friday as we won the award last night. Very proud, very proud, say good morning. You are radio partners numbering three hundred and thirty six affiliates around America and also great TV partners with direct TV the audience network channel two thirty nine and the NBC sports network. We spent some time with Trent Dilfer former NFL quarterback last hour, and we were talking about the quarterback you would invest in right now. If I said you can have them for the next five years money money aside, it's just you got him for the next five years. So Aaron Rodgers is thirty four. You have him until he's thirty nine. You wanna take a chance on Ben Rothlisberger. Who do you take? Number one? And I'm going to guess Jared, Goff just moved up the ladder. Did he move up to number one? Overall, our second annual quarterback draft is coming up momentarily, but last night, Jared, Goff with five touchdown passes. He had a perfect night. Perfect quarterback rating. Five touchdown passes last night. The most tied for the most in Rams history. You've got to go back to Kurt Warner heath. Through five back in a game in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine. But what you saw with the Rams, I think the Rams offense was so good. It kind of overshadowed how bad the defense is right now. Do they have a great pass rush. Obviously you have some injuries keep to leave, not being there. Peters played well at times last night, Kirk d cousins played well. You had two quarterbacks threw threw for over four hundred yards and no interceptions last night. But as you move forward is the offense good enough that you don't have to worry about their defense. And if you think about the greatest show on turf with the Rams when Kurt Warner and Marshall Faulk. They and Isaac Bruce Torry Holt. We didn't talk about their defense. You talked about their offense, and that might be the case for the reincarnation of the Rams and the greatest show on earth. But you know, that's what's important here. When you think about this and it came down to a defensive play that helped that Rams team win the Super Bowl, Mike Jones with the stop on Kevin Dyson. You're going to need defense at some point and they spent a whole lot of money on that defense, but the Rams offense last night with all of those weapons was a whole lot of fun to watch. All right. Five touchdown passes for golf in the thirty eight thirty. One win Ryder Cup is underway. Calloway's don't a really cool thing and it doesn't cost you anything. Calloway created some Ryder Cup specific chrome soft golf balls. We're going to give those way on social media fans, Tuesday to reply which team they think will win the Ryder Cup, and then we'll pick winners on Monday. When the event wraps up and send out those golf balls. Greg Olson will join us ease. The Carolina Panthers tight end. He's injured now, but making the media rounds today got a new teammate yesterday, and Eric Reed, former Pro Bowl defensive back, and I think it's a great pickup for Carolina. And I think it's a football move. If you had Jerry Richardson in there, the former Carolina Panthers owner, I don't think he would have made this move for political reasons. Eric Reed attached to Colin Kaepernick with the anthem controversy, but they went out and made a football move and got a great football player. Bob euchre we believe is going to join us a little bit later on in the Milwaukee Brewers headed to the playoffs. So you who's been calling games in Milwaukee for forty, eight years is going to join us coming up. I believe in the final hour, Hannah storm was calling the game last night on Amazon, this streaming of the game last night. So Hannah storm from the mothership will join us coming up in about an hour from now eight, seven, seven, three DP show Email addresses DP Dan, Patrick dot com. Here is Jared Goff on the Rams offensive performance last night. I think we were just rolling Todd ran really well as the average, but it had to be at least five of thinking. We're kind of getting everything we want in the wrong in the past and just the way the game was going. I think we knew with the way their offense was moving the ball. We had to score a lot of points and. Sometimes that's the way it goes. But either way we, you know, we put a point sometimes we go down there and tell it scores much touchdowns and sometimes we throw them. So it's just the way our offenses. Yeah, it was great fun to watch any through players open which is next level quarterbacking. Here's Mike Zimmer on his team that only has one win right now I have faith in this football team and we can come back and get to where we need to. But you know, we've only got two losses, so I'm not not worried about that. I'm worried about how quite yeah, rightfully so at defense is not as formidable as it was last year, but Kurt, Kirk cousins played well last night. Now the stats are good for him, but I can't have him throwing forty five fifty times. Not going to work in the league. All right. Are we ready for the second annual quarterback draft? Mclovin I have some questions when you ready. Okay. College players, eligible. I'm going. I'm going to allow that. Wow. Do we consider the salary cap situation? No. Okay. Five years note, salary, cap. You know that that doesn't factor and do I get with I take off, do I get Sean McVeigh if I do not if I get Cam Newton, who I get this year's north turnovers and Cam Newton, or do I get last year's Cam Newton? I think though, see in the system counts, Dan, I'm saying that it's just a blank system. We're talking here. Okay. We'll have an offensive coordinator draft. Next week I got taught monk in in the second round. On a new McVeigh. Oh, okay. All right. Fritzy. Do we have music for the draft or is. All right, fritzy two years ago, you shocked the NFL world. Did you had number one overall pick you got this quarterback for the next five years and you decided to take Carson Wentz after only two games and we laughed at you. We want you what MacLeod I trade is used on his board. And. My paper. What are you doing? He's he's going to have Jared, Goff number one, isn't he? Or is he going to doubling down on Carson Wentz. Asterik home. Oh, what's everybody's number one? What's up. Got more homes. Okay. Fritz will j. as impressed as I was with Mr.. Jared. Goff. Okay. And I hate to say it because he's coming to the mile high city on Monday night. I am in fact taking Patrick Mahomes number one. Okay. All right. All right. Mclovin and you can't be looking on fritzy's paper. I wanted Mahomes. Oh, okay. Well, he's a genius of this. He took Carson Wentz two years ago. So I'm looking at. I would. My dad would kill me if I didn't take Carson Wentz here I'm taking Carson Wentz. Nice to be able to consult. My dad is dead. Paul, you're next this guy people think he's old, but he's actually had one hundred and ten fewer starts than Tom Brady and drew Brees. We'd like to welcome Aaron Rodgers to the team with, oh. Oh, that's a big one. Wow. Thirty four year old. Aaron Rodgers. Todd offering commentary. See, no counter. Thank you. I'm on a ride the hot hand in and take Jared Goff. All right. Does that screw up your big boy? Yeah, a little bit. I thought, maybe you know he was going to sneak through here. All righty. I. We'll take Sam darnold saucy saucy. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That's a Todd foot tied Fritz influence or pick? Yep. So I'm going Sam darnold the next five years and. And she drew Brees is only thirty nine. He lives thirty seven. Such torture. I know I'm gonna go Baker Mayfield general. Yes. Reaction. They're going to put up a mural. He's a next law Bron your first two picks in the same age as Tom Brady. Yeah, together. Alrighty seat. McConnell back to me then stinks. I'm going to take. You know, what could just 'cause I, I'm gonna take Cam Newton. Okay. Cam Newton, a twenty nine is off the board volley also at twenty nine years old Russell Wilson. Yeah, that was my other other quarterbacks. I'll man. I just lost Cam and Russell Russell Wilson. Junior high McClatchy. Dalton, still there? Yeah. Is right candy dome? Not that much five years. By the way, if I would've told you two months ago that the Shawn Watson would still be on the board towards the end around two. Okay. I gotta I'm going here. I, I have a high tech I think, drew Brees plays longer than Aaron Rodgers in this NFL, but I'm going to go with. Why the hell do you say drew Brees is gonna play longer than you don't take drew Brees who cares? I've gay big bed thirty. Six nice. Oh my God. Wow. All right. Fritz will Jay. You got back to back. Jack. I'm gonna take the Shawn Watson and Mitchell. Trubisky is my second. That's that's the bears fan, poli laughing. Mclovin your next I take drew Brees. Volley ball. Aw. What welcomes Tina Andrew looks twenty nine years old and he's back. Welcome to the team. It just don't have to throw it longer than twenty feet. No, Connor that's shocking. Let's see. I'm gonna take. How old is he? Let me see here. You know, I'm gonna take Matt Ryan. Thirty three and that's yeah, you'll get. I'm like, am my other pickers later. I'm going to take Matthew Stafford at the ripe old age of thirty coming into his prime. Oh. He might be out of a job next year, but I'm gonna take Dak Prescott. It seems back seat in your backup. Backed up. I am backed up actually still on the board. Yeah, we got a list here. He's handsome. Yeah, I'm actually going to take hold up. I gotta check these ages. Dang. I wish that this is in type. Okay. Who do you need to know how old is? How old is Kirk cousins. Kirk cousins is thirty. Yeah, I'm gonna. Take him. Went up. Oh boy. All right. I know who's going next paulie. This is a tough one. Man. This is a tough note. Just take Blake, Bortles and be done. Wow. What. I'll take drew Brees now he's a hoarder. I thought he wasn't taken. My second James Garoppolo thought you were going to be Jimmy, Jim. Gee, mclovin all Philip rivers still on the board. He's thirty six. Why not? All right. Fallen out. Fritzy back to back and you're done. I'm going to go with Josh Allen. And I am going to go with the other, Josh, Josh Rosen. Okay, Jewish community. Thanks. You mclovin. Wait done. How many quarterbacks are we take. Just keep going. Why got to save some of my guys here. This is in this it. Yeah. Okay. Well, I'm taking case keenum is one fourteen hours last eighteen games. Thank you. Just wins, baby. I don't think it'll be the starter by the end of the year paulie. Derek Carr, twenty seven years old. Yeah, that's good. See, no, Connor. This one's gone. I'm going to take. Yeah, you know what? I don't care. I'll shoot. Yeah, I don't care. I'm gonna take Ryan tannehill. Why not? I'm a believer. Okay. Well, comes down to this for me who you noodling because you don't have to worry, no one's going against. I know I'm I'm looking at Marcus mariota. Or Lamar Jackson. That's so spicy. This. Next five years. I'ma go, Lamar Jackson. Wow. Yeah, there you go. That's it. I don't know what we accomplish there except for two years from now. We'll probably be playing some of the audio from this draft. Yes. Paulie most likely quarterback to not be in the league that was drafted today to not be in the league. It could be Lamar Jackson. It could be. But it could be drew Brees at age thirty nine. Yes. How old are you guys will go? The break I looked at Brady to is I still think breeze plays longer than Brady. Yeah, I just get that feeling. Yes, yes. For a couple of interesting notes, as we recap if you don't mind. So Jameis Winston aged twenty four off the board mariota age twenty. Four off wasn't picked me up. Blake Bortles at age twenty six. We'll among the youngest to not be selectively antibody. By the way the stage is set in France.

I did you guys see designs of these the new t shirts or at least the possibility? Her Seton, one of them is just very close to our NFL draft that we'd just okay, it is. It's an absolute winner. Okay. Are we allowed to talk about that? The new t shirt? I don't know. Well, I thought that's part of your junk. You could do what it was. Yeah, it is. Yeah, I don't. I don't know. I'd I only found out about this one because I just happened to walk in the back and okay there like, oh, hey, look at this. Other than that, I had no idea. Okay. We have a Patrick Mahomes t shirt. And I think it's great. It's one of my favorite designs that we've had and I don't know when we can unveil this, but maybe on Monday, hopefully place while the good, but but if he doesn't, then we could bump it back another week. But we we have a Patrick Mahomes t-shirt dope. It is. It is. What's up Mahomes. So that'll be something that will put up wi- once we're ready, we put it into production. I think it'll be great with that fan base. You're gonna love the way this t shirt looks also coming up Nick Friday on e one American idol. He was in Orlando last night at the national association of broadcasters awards night, and he represented us. We couldn't be there in Orlando, and I was up for the Marconi award, which is best national radio host. And so two days is friends with Nick Friday on e. and he said, would you go up there and except on our behalf. If we happen to win and then we won. So we will bring that to you. When are we going to play that seat? Do you have it now? We'll have it like ten minutes were getting the audio and video and Knicks gonna call in is what we is. Yes. Fifteen minutes, I I heard he's out living it up in Orlando with our award. It's fine if it comes back with some chips out of it or dense in it. That's okay. It's like the Stanley Cup, go party with it. All right, mclovin the poll question so far with Gasol I'm actually going to change it up and put our first five picks of our QB draft and ask the audience who they would've taken number one. So it's Mahomes Wentz Rogers. Who I'm sorry, who were forced heating who'd you got four. Dan, if you get a five, throw it away dude, through limit quarterback. Darnold at five and Baker Mayfield junior the third, which at four. Okay. Goth. Okay. That's the poll top-five who'd you take one? All right, Greg, Olsen joining us the Panthers tight end. He's a partner with Walgreens, and Proctor and gamble. They launch a buy one, get one for fifty percents off. Select Proctor and gamble products at Walgreens in October, Greg to visit with you again. How are you today? Doing great. Thanks for having me on. How's the? How's the foot. Yeah, doing doing pretty good. You know, better off than we thought we were going to be. You know, when it first happened three weeks ago we were, you know, pretty disappointed. Obviously to kind of be back in the same boat. We were in a year ago, kinda something we thought we'd put behind us something. I really recovered really well from. I had no problems. All off season didn't miss a day camp preseason. And then you know, to get hurt again. And I first quarter or the first game, you know disappointing to say the least, but we're confident I'll be able to come back and play at a high level and and we're hoping that's in a matter of weeks, not months. What do you do during the week? Well, now you know now that I'm a little more mobile and you know moving around pretty good. I you know it's more as much as it is getting your foot better is kinda just making sure the rest of your body is ready. You know, you take a week or two of kind of sitting around and getting the swelling, and then you know inflammation in the pain to go away. You can't really do a lot to. Now it's, you know, getting back working out, getting your conditioning up, getting your body, ready to go, put a heavy stress load on it. So yeah, your foot feels good, but the rest of your body stinks, you know, that's that's what you don't want. That's always the biggest challenge of coming back off injury during the season. I got some stats here for you. I don't know if you know this, but you had fifty three career receiving touchdowns at the university of Miami, the sixth most receiving touchdowns by player who played it to you. Now Michael Irvin had sixty five Santana moss sixty six to me. Graham sixty nine Andre Johnson seventy and Reggie Wayne. The all-time leader with eighty two career touchdown passes. Did you realize where you still on that list? I did not know I, that's a good list. Yes, you named a pretty good. You got a couple of hall of famers on their produce through produced a few guys over the years when you say, yeah, is Andre Johnson hall of Famer. That's a good question. I mean, he he, he's gotta be in the mix. I mean, you, you know, maybe not first ballot, but you know, you start talking to as a guy who's you know not only had two high, you know, high production, you know, as much as anybody in the league, but over a long period of time. And I always think that's kind of the the magic, you know, kind of equations that they use when they talk about skill players is you know where you had dominant player at your position and if so, for how long and you know, I think his numbers, if you know of course, sometimes they hold the the Super Bowl stuff against guys and that's something. But yeah, if if if they hold te'o out for perceive not being a great teammate and whatnot, then they should give the benefit of the doubt to a guy like Andre Johnson who is as good, a teammate as good, a person as everybody who's ever played with them and known them couldn't say enough, good things about them. That's gotta go for something if it can go the other way. Right. How crazy was the competition at the you just practice? Yeah, I'll tell you. I on my the way I sum up my whole experience, so I transferred. From Notre Dame. I arrive on a Friday after they opened up the season. I was a week late. They had already opened the season against Louisiana tech on Thursday night. I watched it for my my family room and my my home in New Jersey. I flew out there Friday morning went to the Friday meetings, and then we had our first practice on Saturday. We break the huddle. I'm on the scout team and of the eleven guys on the starting defense. I think seven or eight of them went on to get drafted in the first round, know either that year or the following year. So I mean that kinda symbolized what what it was like. And you talk about an eye opening experience just being around such good talent at all. Three levels of it was it was a very unique experience in my time there, but who was the talent that you just went? Oh, my God. I never encountered this when I was playing football, New Jersey. When you break the huddle and you look across and the linebackers John Vilma DJ Williams at safety, they had Sean Taylor. I mean, you Vince well, for, I mean, those guys were on the same p.m. You know? But I think if you had to pick one, I mean, Sean Taylor was, you know? I mean, obviously just a tragedy. Anytime you bring his name up, it's just it's almost it's almost surreal to to imagine, but to think of what could have been a guy who really, we haven't seen another guy like him. I mean he was Kam chancellor, but running for three. You know, it was very unique unique player for his size, his range, his boss skills, his physicality. He was, you know, we saw that in his first short time in the NFL after college, his his unique skill set and what he could do. It was just truly a shame. I don't know if you thought this I did when I saw that you got injured and my first thought was, gosh, I wonder if when. Greg starts to think maybe maybe I should have taken a broadcasting job. I don't know if it was close for you to maybe take that broadcasting job, but have you thought about that? Like the the what ifs? Because those jobs don't come open. And I didn't know if there was one where you said it's going to be tough to turn it down, but I wanna come back and play since you missed nine games last season with the same injury. Yeah, I think that's fair. And I'd probably be lying to you if like anyone else who has bad things happen to them, you know, for a brief moment of weakness, you don't play the what if game, right? I think we've all been there. You know, it's not something we, we'd all love to say that we don't, you know, have those times and we don't ever think back and second gas, but you know that that's probably a fair thing to say. You know, last off season, we had some unique opportunities. We had some discussions with various groups about, you know, moving on and doing something else. You know to say, I regret coming back would be that's not true. I I knew I could play at a high level. I still know I can play at a high level. Did I think I was gonna get hurt in the first quarter of that first game, of course not. You know if I would've known that about don't though. You know, it's just it's just human nature, you know, and and you know what could have been, but you know, I, I'm very confident that I'm going to be able to play and play at a high level and play a lot of games this year. It's it's not how he drew it up. Very, very few times. Does it ever go as planned? But you know, when I'm done playing whenever that is, you know, hopefully those jobs are still there. Hopefully there's still possibilities if they're not, you know, sometimes that's that's the brakes. But you know, I've been very lucky both. You know, first and foremost has football player to have the career I have and and over the last few years, the cool things I've gotten to do in the in the TV and broadcasts world that I realized, you know, come around, they don't come around, very often have been have been equally as as as enjoyable would. The previous ownership have brought in Eric, read in Carolina. I think that's a great question. I, you know, I, I think you to be honest, I think you'd have to say probably not. And I don't know if that's necessarily one individual being changed as much as maybe just the philosophy of the organization, and and I don't even think it's a just probably the the, not the right word to use, but I don't even think it would be a political thing, not necessarily in the true sense of the words, but as much as just a the perception of distraction, I think was always something the organization and football coaches and football people in general want to avoid. So I don't think it was even we wouldn't sign agreed because we don't agree with him as much as take out how you feel about the situation and everything going on with the anthem policy. Take all that remove do we want to have to talk about an answer to it. I think it would be more along the lines of that, but I think it's a fair point. We obviously have new ownership. We have new kind of a new path for our organization. And and you know, first and foremost, I think they thought Eric could help us out a lot. I don't think. It's a mystery to anybody. We've, we've all seen him played against him numerous times over the years for a while. He is a good player and from all, I don't know him personally very well. But from all counts, people have nothing but great things to say as a person. So when those two th when those two boxes are checked, he, that's the guy you want your locker room. Why does it feel like the Panthers are still trying to figure out how to use Christian McCaffrey? Yeah, I feel like the last couple of weeks we've done a pretty good job to be honest. You know, he caught fourteen balls and week two and then followed that up with twenty six carries for a hundred and eighty yards in week three. I think each week I think is going to be hard to predict what his impact is. I don't think it's necessarily fair to just compare his rushing numbers to other runners or on the flip side. His passing numbers. I think for him it's about touches and what he does with those touches in whether it comes through a pass, comes through a run. I really don't think I don't think it's really relevant. I don't think it really matters. 'cause he's just kind of a different bodies. Not a guy that he's not Adrian Peterson where he's going to stand in the eye and you're gonna run downhill and you're going to hand it to him. And he's just going to run like a, you know, wild man that you know, he's he's gonna do a little bit more things with nuance. And so I think that's the biggest thing when examining Christians impact is what he does with the ball and not so much how he gets the ball. Yeah, I think that's a fair point. And he has had a great start to the season. Before we let you go Walgreens Proctor and gamble, if you'd like to get into get the plug in there for those guys. Cool for the whole month of October. We're working together on this Bogo fifty blitz. You can go to your local Walgreens, any participating p. and g. product. As you mentioned you buy one at full price. You get a second one and her for fifty percent off. So it's all of us. I got three young kids, busy household things that we rely on a daily basis. You know, for the next month of October, it's a great opportunity to go kind of stock up on on things that we use on day in and day out and and kind of stock them up. So it's been, it's been fun working with them both on this and things in the past. And I think it's been a good and hopefully successful campaign always good too busy with you. Greg, good luck with recovery there and we'll hopefully see you back on the field soon. Thank you. Thanks, Dan. Take care. Golson Panthers tied him. Yeah, the Christian McCaffrey, I think it's going to be almost gained a game of how you use him. If it's a running back and running the ball or he's going to be, you know, receiver and I look at him as a guy can get ninety. One hundred catches, you know, his dad was. Very good route runner. You know, very athletic wide receiver with the Broncos and McCaffrey has that ability, but also has the ability. I think we wondered if you could load him up and give him twenty five carries. But I think we forget sometimes when you look at his side, he seems smaller than what he is. But then you look at other running backs who are of similar size, but we don't question. Can you load them up with twenty twenty-five carries Yep on. If you look at Marshall FOX best years, he averaged about thirteen hundred yards a year, but he never went over fourteen hundred yards. He was never the leading rusher in the NFL Marshall Faulk. But there he had seasons where thirteen hundred yards, four years of really at thirteen hundred yards and at least eighty catches the best Marshall Faulk. And that's kind of the ideal for McCaffrey, right? Yes. If you could get him as a thousand yard guy and you could get him, ninety catches you. Just it goes back to the touches. If I get touches as a wide receiver, those are different touches than as a running back and where where are you getting hit? Who's hitting you? How many players are hitting you that. What I wanna do you wanna get McCaffrey outing space? And it feels like they have a little bit more of a formula for him, but he's a very, very valuable commodity here. I always thought the question is, how do you use him because Cam is not one of those Duncan dunk kind of quarterbacks, but you have to have a little bit of that if you're gonna take advantage of Christian McCaffrey. Yeah, mclovin. Have you noticed like very few one hundred yard games anymore. They're going into this week. There's not a guy with three hundred yards on the season. It feels like everyone running backs of if you keep saying their receivers now, who's it between the tackles runner anymore. There's nobody. Adrian Peterson, Peterson, glitter net, but girly last night as we were talking before. He seemed the lineup of receiver a lot and do all sorts of things. I would use girly the same way Carolinas using Christian McCaffrey or the other way around. I just want him out in space if he makes one guy miss, then he can have a touchdown. If you're running the ball, it's rare when you make one guy missing, you can take it to the house, but that's what I want with Gurley. I want him out in space with that offense. There you gotta. You know, you got guys who stretched the field now. So cooks in woods can stretch the field. Cooper Cup can stretch the field. Now I put girly out there in space. Now you might only have one guy on him and then that's when you hit a home run. And I think that's the big difference there. When we come back, we weren't able to accept the Marconi award last night in Orlando, but Nick Friday, Yanni who won American idol. A couple years ago was in Orlando at the event performing at the event. And today's got in touch with Nick.

Tony Romo was on one zero, five point three, the fan in Dallas and Tony Romo had this to say. Much more hurt back in probably thirteen and fourteen and I would be now. Yeah. I mean, I'm healthy enough. That wouldn't be it wouldn't be the issue at all. I don't think that would be the least of my thoughts. I came to decision like that obviously. So Tony is healthier now as healthy as he been in a while. Here's a question for you. Tony, Romo better broadcaster better quarterback. Now about that more impactful as a broadcaster, but plan for the Cowboys. You always get too much credit and too much blame, but Tony, Romo better broadcaster, better quarterback, both at a high level mclovin. I think Tony Romo would want you to answer quarterback Woody. He now. Oh, definitely. He's like eight. Oh, that's like how he made his bones as he was a great quarterback. It was really good, but the fact that he's two years in or in a second season and made this kind of impact, don't you think you now? I mean, don't you think Eddie act you've worked with a lot of over players went, they always want you to say the on the field thing. I don't know. I, I don't know with Tony Romo, but I'd I'd be curious if we had him on and I asked him, would you rather have somebody compliment you on your broadcasting or your quarterbacking ability. I, I'm going to set the scene as best. I can last night national association of broadcasters. They hold their annual awards ceremony and they have it in different cities. Last night I was in Orlando, and this is where they hand out local awards to radio Philly. It's and host and stations, and also they have the the big one. And that's the Marconi award that goes to the national best national radio host. And I've won at once before. I was up for the nomination last night and ended up winning. We obviously weren't there in Orlando, but Nick Friday, Yanni who won American idol a couple years ago, friends of the show friend of today's. He's from Connecticut. He's been in studio with us. He's been on the show a couple of times and we two days reached out and said, look, if Dan wins, would you go up and accept the award on his behalf? And here's how it played out last night in Orlando. And the winner is. Dan, Patrick premiere networks. So they're not sure if anybody's accepting on my behalf and Nick Friday on. He comes up and grabs the Marconi award. Gets a picture taken. The host is met Nathanson that, right? Like singer-songwriter? Yeah. So then Nick is going to go up and make his acceptance speech. Matt was concerned that I drank too much. This is this is planned. I'm Nick Freddie Onny I'm the guy that showed up because max isn't here. So nice to meet you guys. So. I'm friends with Dan Patrick. I'm from Connecticut and Dan's radio shows in Connecticut. I've been on his show few times and I got a text today and he said, dude, if I win, you got to, you got to accept the award. So that's what I'm doing. I. I don't really have anything to say. Dan is happy, and he's also at a loss for words as in my so. I'll see you guys soon. That was well done joining us. Now, the former American idol winner, Nick Freddie on how would you compare that last night to winning American idol? Nick. Well, I'll be honest with you. I never that the trophy itself is pretty serious, dude. I mean, I didn't get anything like that show. So I was I was walking around last night at the bar with that thing as a MAC, that people I was like a big shot last night, so I appreciate it was like it was great. How nervous were you. I wasn't too nervous. I mean, I I was more nervous that like it didn't seem organizes like that. People do. I was like, that ran the show that I was going to do it. So I was worried that like people are gonna get mad at me and think that I was just running on state. So like it was kinda weird, but I wasn't too nervous. And you came up with a couple of things to say, which was great. You know, you add lived a little bit. I mean, I I tried, I tried, I tried my best, but it was. I mean, I probably overthrow, you know, I, I, I'm actually friends with Dan over locked, but it was cooler for me to Sam friends with us. That was okay. Why realized that you didn't give two days of shout out there that you said it in and I kind of felt bad. I, I listen. Today's. Again, I was trying to think of my whole night and I was like, I'm gonna have this trophy. I, I'm gonna perform tonight. I'm the American idol winner. If I could say Dan, Patrick friend, it kind of goes a little farther. So yeah, it was cool. I thought you did a great job, but I, you know, once you got on stage, it felt like people were going what the hell that's not Dan. Patrick who the hell is that they're accepting their? Did you get that feeling. Oh, that was. That was definitely the feeling because I was thinking I was like, do I say like I'm a producer, do I like like, do I roll with it? But I was like, I mean, I guess I was hoping that someone would recognize me. I mean, that's kind of my job. It's still somewhat does. So anyways, it was. It was kind of it was totally random, but it was it was fun. How was the after party. Well, there's two different after parties. So there was like the wall. There was two different hotels that were doing. It was like the old person party. And then there was like the younger person parties. I went to the old person party first and then the the younger crowd to to end the night. I don't know how I'm getting your trophy through security. This thing is a pretty, it's a beast, man. It's pretty good, pretty good sized trophy. We'll just have them ship it. Ship at them. They left it with me. You know what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna get a. I don't wanna. I don't wanna give it up. I'm gonna get you a mini Marconi for accepting the award for me last night. Yeah, I can. I can put it on like a necklace or something. Oh, no, no, it's a little bit bigger. Can you write a song about the Marconi? Like is there a way to, you know, work this into your holy? Yeah, it could work. I could work Marconi line into a song. I think if you'd like maybe maybe two days can work on it with me. We can get something for your for your Marconi win. Yeah, he's no phony. He won the Marconi Mark. Right. And then from there, something like that house, I think that that can look a career. Careers, go, well, man, just, you know, just I was on tour for awhile, put out a without an ET about nine months ago working on new stuff in the studio now. So it's a good life. I'm playing music, so it's fun. Got a website that people can go and keep an eye on what's going on. Yeah. Everything all social media or website innings, just dick Freddie ATI? No, it's not easiest last name spell, but it's f. far AD I a anti. Everything's say, Nick, thank you. We look forward to seeing you back in Connecticut, and again, you did a great job, accepting on my behalf last night. Thanks, man. I appreciate it. They're awesome. Guys are awesome. Thank you. Nick Friday. Yanni American idol winner. And I thought he was going to give to it as a shout out and two days thought he was getting a shout out his well, because he, you know, I'm friends with Dan. He's gonna, say Dan over locked today's name and all of a sudden or got kicked to the curb there. It got Charlie Brown last night. It was at the end of his speech was shot out to Mario and the big on the creator share this with you and Allan Allan. The IT guy. Yeah, suck it back row. Yeah, Paul. Now, if you play this right, if Nick Friday Onny wins a Grammy someday you get to go on there and except on his behalf only fair now I'm okay with that. I'm good until it gets nominee. Then you're like, I'm in? No, no, no, no, no, that's fun. I hate those words ceremonies. I come the worst like, I'm I've become like a puddle of tears up there. It it. Just it's best if somebody else wins, you know, accepts for me. Yes, you know the thing I never realized that the only real awards ceremony I ever went to was just this last year's sports Emmys because we were nominated and that was amazing. It was such a good feeling to get nominated. Yeah. And then when you get there, you're like, oh, man, we actu-. Might actually have a chance to win. This is great, and then you don't win new and you're like, wow, well, this really stinks, and then you realize that ninety percent of the people. There are all losers that night. No, no, we're not losers. We're just not winner. Okay. So then there's ten percent of the people there won the award and you spend the whole time looking at them all happy like, oh, sh stop? No. Okay winner. Okay, we get it. We know we saw you up there. You want stop rubbing and interfaces, and then you have to have that photo. Congratulations. Like. Bobbly won for best studio host, and I had to go up an act like congrats Bob. Actually, I was, I said, going in, I thought bobbly should win whether he was going to win or not. And then he did win.

Pat Hughes on his legendary career

"As always it's time to start the show here on the comes weekly podcast presented by wintrust proud legacy farther other chicago cubs and the only place to get to chicago cubs debit card. Get yours today at wintrust dot com slash cubs. No what. I'm always alongside. My guy told ya not here. The comes weekly podcast but this week. Well it's a special treat because it's the voice of the chicago cubs man. You've heard him on the radio. Airwaves since nineteen ninety six. Like i said it's my pleasure to welcome pat hughes to the show. Pat how you do call and tony. I'm doing fine It's a special time when it gets to be november that was of course when the comes won the world series back in twenty sixty in early november so that was four years ago this month and it was actually twenty five years ago. This month that i was hired by the comes to be the radio. Play by play man when it's kind of funny at that time. They called me the voice of the cubs and now twenty five years later they still call me the voice of the cubs. It sounds kind of mike. Me that i to me like i have not really had a job promotion in about a quarter of a century. It's it's not really a dead end gig it's a. It's a great job. I wanna stay the rest of my career. Absolutely no pat real quick before we get into the meat and potatoes of our interview. Our little one on one here the day you got that call you said. It was twenty five years ago and boy time sir does fly wars reaction. What did you think to yourself. Okay i now get to be the voice of one of the iconic franchises in all of major league. Baseball chicago cubs. It was a big moment. Cold there's no question about it I was one of you know like maybe two hundred candidates or applicants for the position. And you never know you know. I was the number two guy in milwaukee at the time a very small market. I was trying to get one of the major jobs a big market. So that's a big jump. I didn't know at a chance but You who this works when you throw your hat into the ring they tell you what. You're one of the final twenty. You're one of the final ten that gets down to five and then it really gets hard to sleep at night. And then you find out you're the one of the final two or three guys The the other two guys dave. O'brien has gone on to stardom at at espn and matt bass. Gershon was also one of the finalists in and ease with the mlb network among other places. So i am still stuck with the cubs. Those guys have gone on to fame and fortune. Bad place to be though i just as you talk about them getting of your career. How did you come into your style and your own personality. And how has it changed over the twenty five years with the cubs or even in time. Before that i think it's something that evolves naturally tony i think you gotta be yourself especially on radio. You're working every day. Have no script. You hope that you have good partners than i do. I have great artists right now. Ron coomer and salesman. I love those guys and going back to the days. When i was a child when i played ball instead of broadcast i love being part of a good team. And it's it's a very cool thing. I was lucky enough to be on some championship teams as a kid and in high school basketball played one year of college basketball But i was on the colt league. All star game that played in the world series in nineteen seventy one forty nine years ago. It was staged in lafayette indiana. It was the first time. I was over on an airplane ride but not to get too far off the point. I love being part of a good team. And i think the team ron coomer zacks. They've been a myself is a very strong team. We have a great boss in mitch rosen. We worked for the cubs a with a great management there. Tom ricketts and crank kenny. They give us absolute freedom to do whatever we want. And they're very supportive and then the team we've ended cover these last five. Six years has been extra special. The world series was obviously the pinnacle but every year. They've been a contending team. And i can tell you. That's not normal. When i was in milwaukee and minnesota for one year i never covered that many contending teams I have been a thirteen year. Major league baseball broadcast veteran by the time. I got to chicago and no playoff games so fi late when i got here. We got a lot of playoff games. And i've been blessed and i have no intention of going anywhere else. I was joking about being stuck in a dead end. It's anything but a data. In fact. When i got this position you guys. I didn't look at it as a stepping stone to some other major network job or television job or whatever and our business as you know is full of what i would call broadcast gypsies. There guys always looking around for that next gig. They wanna make a splash. They want people to know that. Hey this guy got that job. He got that job look at him. I'm not that way. I have the job i like. It was when. I set out to do way back. When i was in college when i realized i was not going to be a professional athlete. I thought being the voice of one of the great american sports franchises would be the next best way to go through life. And i've been lucky enough to do exactly that with the chicago cubs. Yeah it's like a nomadic lifestyle. You know i know that are all too familiar with that. Patio lived in texas twice in louisiana in massachusetts in connecticut in california and finally the land here my hometown of chicago illinois to work chicago cubs marquee sports network. So i know exactly how you feel when it comes to landing that job. It's a forever job. You'll of people say they always want their forever homes where they want to retire and spend some of their last days will. This is a forever. Jobless is a job that everybody wants. I know that as long as you're on the microphone you're not gonna let anybody have that job because you do it better than anybody else wanted. My biggest regrets all season long in this crazy. Two thousand and twenty is at at the marquee sports network studio each and every single game. I don't get to listen to you pack as much like to on the airwaves but when it comes to you and how different two thousand twenty is what. What did you notice at least for the very well. It was different. Coal with no fans in the stands but really that is something. I kind of got used to. I really noticed it when the comes. Were playing say the cardinals or the white sox because when those two teams play the comes the atmosphere in the ballpark especially at wrigley but also on the cubs of the visiting team. Against those two clubs. It's special it's electric and fans are just buzzing. And i miss that in those games have particular but i was on the other hand extremely baseball of any form to broadcast this year because it came very close as you guys both know early in the season when the cardinals and the marlins had multiple players test positive for the corona virus and they had to sit out for two three four weeks and there was a day or two in that period where i thought you know what another couple of teams that have problems. This whole season is going to be cancelled. Thankfully that did not happen. We were able to play the sixty games and them. The full postseason so. I'm thankful that we had any baseball at all but it was. It was a challenge. It was a challenge. Doing the road games. I think most fans realized that. Ron coomer and sabin i worked right at wrigley field obviously for the cubs home games but even when the cops were in cincinnati or pittsburgh or milwaukee oil or wherever we were there ridley working off of television monitors. Now call your television guy. You're used to that. We are radio guys. We were not used to that and it was a bit of a challenge. I've found. I had to be a little more discipline and wait for the play to evolve before i jumped the gun But it was. I think it worked out. okay There was a funny thing that happened funny now not funny at the time. We were doing a game in kansas city and we were at wrigley field working off the television monitor. The cubs were leading by a wide margin late in the game and the person who is in charge of programming on whatever network. The game was on decided he was going to cut to the dodgers padres. Game right in the middle of hours. So here we are. We're doing the cubs and royals. And i forget who was batting. Anthony resort who've ever and all of a sudden anthony's gone. I have no idea what's going on. And i remembered an old story but ronald reagan. The president who. I think a lot of baseball fans know you was a radio baseball announcer way back in des moines iowa for i believe w. h. o. Radio and one of his jobs was to be a play by play man for the chicago cubs. This is back in the nineteen thirties. I believe but there was a story that ronald reagan told that i thought of that night when they cut away from the cubs game. And i'm left hanging. I have no idea what. Anthony rizzo is doing so ronald reagan at time He was doing a recreation. He lost the feed. The machine broke so he had no idea what was going on. He had the batter foul off about thirty five straight pitches. So that's when i had anthony. Rizzo do here's a swinging afoul back a swing and a drummer foul line. Drive foul down the right field line and coumarin. I are kind of laughing and wondering you know. Where is the cubs game. What is going on. But finally after about i'd say two minutes it felt like about two hours. They came back and they put the cubs video but it was a good laugh. And i've learned after all these years it does no good to get up tight or mad or angry. Stay loose have fun. Everything's gonna be okay yet. Pat like during the early read barber advanced days where they had to listen to the game's over the radio there. What's the play came through the head of a two by fours base. It through the right side in the romans done at home. It's like it's almost like that. Like yesteryear in two thousand and twenty exactly but again. It was kind of cool. It was also a funny at the ballpark wrigley. Now the tv crew was there lennon jd there over on television and and we have an engineer also sarang and they had little crew but literally. They're only like ten people in the ballpark. When the cubs were on the road there was the radio crew and the television crew. We had the lights on in our booths. That's obvious but when the sun started to go down We thought the lights would stay on at wrigley. No you could not see second base from where we were the first few games that we were working at wrigley. Doing a road game at working off the monitor. I've found myself out of habit looking at the field. Because that's what i've done every single minute and i've been a play by play man for thirty eight seasons and it's a very lonely feeling when you look at the field and there's no one there and then it turns dark and you can't see anything but again it was all an adjustment. I'm glad we did the games and we may have to do in that manner in the future. I hope not but if we do. It's not that big of a deal and i always. I always kept in mind with all the suffering across the board in this country. The people were undergoing a my job of doing games on. The monitor is a minor inconvenience compared to most people and as you guys are doing those road games and stuff. One of the road games happened to be a no hitter in milwaukee as alec mills threw it. How different was experience for you to broadcast that game. Compared to the jake arrieta no hitters or any of the other ones that you've called in the past. It was exciting tony. A no hitter has always exciting the drama and the excitement of bills after about the fifth inning. Then you get to the six and you think well somebody's probably gonna get a hit. Alec mills a good pitcher. He's never been a great pitcher he may. He was a rookie. So this like so many things in baseball him right out of the blue and it kind of reminded me a little bit of the twenty strikeout game of kerry would back in nineteen ninety. Eight carrie was making his fifth big-league start. You had no way of anticipating that he was gonna make baseball history. Strike out a national league record number of guys in one game it gets to or a strong houston astros team but the no hitter by alec. Mills was in a way similar to that it was at miller. Park was on a sunday and it was a beautiful sunny day. Milwaukee just did not hit the ball that day and everything they hit which right outta cub there was one. Pretty good defensive. Play by ian happens center as i recall but nothing in the outstanding defense category. It was Just very businesslike and very workman-like alec mills just kept throwing strikes. He kept getting out at. He mowed down the brewers in nine innings and nobody really even came close to a base it but it was special. It was the seventh. I've had the honor and privilege of covering was the fourth by a cubs pitcher. The to by jake arrieta back in twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen and that carlos zambrano in two thousand eight and zambrano's no hitter is a great trivia question. Where was his no hitter against. The houston astros. You would think. Well it's gotta be either wrigley or houston. Right no hurricane. I had forced a cancellation of the series in. Houston that no hitter. Took place at miller part in milwaukee the same place that alec mills had is no. It's funny how things come full circle just like that. Because i know that. All those brewers fans. I know that they ain't that a cubs has a no hitter at miller park in. It's not against even the milwaukee brewers. It's just they are kinda just hanging out there. In the stratosphere brewers fans. I know that sits in there in the craw wreck free each and every single time they hear that stat but at least for me pat. No getting into this field. It's it's not the run of the mill industry. And i know that there's so many different jobs that dot the landscape. It's tough to get all these jobs like might be said you were already a almost a fifteen year major league broadcast veteran before you got this job with the chicago cubs. So was there any one instance in particular that made you go down that path or was that something that you planned out from scratch was that the blueprint originally when it came to pack hughes plan of life to be the cubs broadcaster for twenty five plus years will i would say coal that. When i was in college. I played one year of college basketball. I was one of those kids who played ball like it was my job every single day. Okay football basketball. Baseball league quarterback goes shooting hard. I was a shortstop every day. I'm out there with my buddies. Were getting pickup games together. And i absolutely loved it and i thought why wouldn't that be fun to make a living shooting baskets or throwing passes or playing stop or whatever and then i got to be about seventeen eighteen. I was a good athlete. I was not a great athlete. And i realized maybe the next best thing to being a player would be to be a play by play man because not only. Are you making a living. But you can do it your whole life and here. I am now officially senior citizen. I turned sixty five in. May i don't feel sixty five. But i'm making a living in sports. I have a great position. And i still think just the way i thought back when i was eighteen or nineteen that being a play by play man. And i'll tell you what i wanted call really. I wanted to be the voice. The radio voice. I don't mind television. I've done television and viral lose this job and there was a tv job open. I might apply. But i love doing radio play by play especially baseball. It's a challenge. It's fun and i love the game but my goal was to be the voice. The voice a one of the great american sports franchises and it could have been football basketball or baseball. And we all know. If you're a sports person you know exactly what i'm talking about. Just say baseball. You got the cubs and white sox and cardinals yankees and red sox dodgers and giants may one or two others baltimore guests. But you know there's that core in every sport. That has the great franchises and that was my goal. And i got it. And i'm going to stay here as long as i can pat Bubba the baltimore orioles. They haven't been stories franchisee quite some time in a big. Maybe we'll see return to prominence sometime soon but it doesn't look like anytime soon but yeah tony out eligible back to your mind a question. I'd like to retract that on. We can do some editing on this right later on once upon a time. It's it's crazy frog those kids who don't remember the baltimore orioles even if you go back to the roberto alvar days david pretty well. And when i was in the american league the orioles had cal ripken junior and eddie. Murray hitting back to back in the lineup to tremendous ballplayers both over three thousand hits of course cal at the ironman record breaking lou gehrig's consecutive game streak and eddie murray was a tremendous ballplayer at first base. Switch hitter with our Eddie and cow. And then going back to the sixties they had those great teams with frank and brooks robinson and it is a great baseball town. I think You know you're right lately. They have not been. But it's one of those cities where the fans are completely into it. You get into a cab or you go to a coffee shop. Everyone is talking orioles baseball or at least they were back in the day and i guess that's why i just am included them in that. In that great american sports franchise so pet over. Your career comes of ad and their opponents have had a lot of interesting names. You know. there's tough wednesday like mark crowds alana that we know famously eric at issue saying Jeff smarter so on who was always a a difficult name for you to say then it a little bit different realm. Who are some of the guys that you've just enjoyed watching even more beyond like going beyond just broadcasting their games well first of all the names and you mentioned harry carey. Or at. Least maybe i thought about harry but when when you engine work read salonika i thought about harry carey. That's what it was I told you. I'm a senior citizen. I have these little little lapses. But it's a funny story. Harry used to have fun saying names backward even spell the name and say backwards and so one day i went in there and i said hey you mark russell airy very worked on cubs radio with ron santo and me for a couple of years before he passed and i said harry how would you say mark rutte zelenik backwards said it already as backwards sent me straight right away there but no i think if you do your homework and you ask the visiting broadcaster how they say they're players names. You should get the names right and once you get it right. It should not be an issue thereafter. But it's it's a matter of being polite and and You know respecting the on both teams and getting their names right. Everyone wants to hear their name said properly. And some of the players that that i've enjoyed watching I i saw his name on the paper when anthony russo was named gold glove winner and that would be directly. Derek was a great player. He played about a decade ago. Fifteen years ago. And i saw him in his prime. I saw him win a batting championship. He was a great first baseman but he was a cool guy to he was all about winning the game He never got too excited. What he could hit he could hit with power. He was a clutch player. Great defensive player. Great base runner great teammate. So i would say directly is one of my all time favorite players to watch and aroma ramirez would be in that category too. I think rama's is right there. Along with ron santo possibly as the two greatest third baseman in the history of the chicago cubs. And let me just say about ron santo. He was such an important guy on a special guy to me and he was so bizarre and so funny and we laughed every single day. But i was thinking when i was talking to call about getting this job. Twenty five years ago before our first exhibition game would have been march of nineteen ninety six. And i remember the night before the game. I was very nervous. i came from milwaukee. What the smallest markets here. I am now in chicago doing the cubs one of the biggest markets so you. You can't make a bigger jump in baseball than milwaukee to the cubs. But i was nervous. But ron on knew that he called me the night before our first game he said pat. I know you're nervous. Don't be he said you're gonna be great. We're going to have fun. You do the play by play. I'll do the caller. We're gonna have some wins. We're gonna have some losses but we're gonna laugh every day and we're going to have fun and as soon as i hung up the phone. I was no longer nervous. I slept well. I look forward to the next game the next day our first game together everything went well and i will never forget how kind and generous of a move. That was by. Ron santo to me and i loved him for it. Lopez having spent you know twenty five years in the booth of the chicago cubs coming from. The milwaukee brewers organization. There's a guy in the booth that calls games by himself and he's been doing it for over forty years. That's bob euchre now. A lot of people they know him. As george owens from mr belvedere but a or they ought to be known as the guy from the miller lite commercial from the best seat in the house but when it comes to a guy that is a standalone. One of the best. Ever do it. Maybe heard vin. Scully we've heard read barbara. Those guys and they were in a class of their own. But bob euchre. I mean this is one of the best to ever do it in for him to come in contact with you come in contact with. What did you learn from it. I learned a lot of things from bob. And and you're right. He's a great announcer. loves the game. He is one of the rare people. Call who grew up in milwaukee and then became the voice of the milwaukee brewers. That's very fortunate similar to you and your story. You're from chicago and now you're getting to work here on marquee so good for you-call-its a rare thing you can go away around the big leagues and there. Aren't that many guys who grew up in the city in which are working. There's a few mike shannon and saint. Louis john miller in the bay area Gary cohn and new york. How a rose and new york. And there's there are a few others but most of us have to go where the gigs are as you know so hubris from milwaukee. He's probably one of the most famous sports icons in the history of the state of wisconsin. You might put brett farve in there. You might vince lombardi You know there's a few others maybe but uber's right up on the on. The top of the mountain in that regard great play by play man stand up comedian but he does not try to be a standup comedian. Doing baseball on the radio. People think that he was a laugh a minute. That's not the case. If you try to be funny every minute you would sound like a fool because here's a professional comedian. Realizing no you pick your spots you you throw a zinger in eerie. Throw zinger in their mainly. You're calling balls and strikes letting people know what's going on in the game and that's why you survive but he's a hall of famer absolute icon. I learned i think acing. I learned how to fill a like during rain delays. He's a user an unbelievable talent during rain delays. But you tell stories you have fun you relax and you just talk baseball so I learned a lot from the you know. He's he's a a very Complicated man. I would say in many ways but i did learn a lot from him. We got along just fine as you mentioned to. You know working alongside people and telling stories going through that route. And obviously ron sanchez. You just talked about a couple of minutes ago. What was that like you know kind of take us behind the scenes a bit working with ronnie for as many years you guys did. And we've heard some great stories. I think it's the to pay. starting on. fire is is my favorite and the other ones. But what was that. Like on a day to day basis. Where with ron. It was it was crazy Ronnie was one of the funniest people just being himself and You know you don't even have to embellish stories. Just tell them and it's it's funny just to think about it. he was. We were in the both in cincinnati. I have to clear this this up a little bit. But i don't i won't use any profanity but he certainly did Was he's reading fan mail. It's about an hour and a half before the game cubs reds at old synergy. Feel and he's looking at a letter and he says speaking appearance. I better call this lady. So he calls up a lady. I think her name was mary and he says mary. It's ron santo. And i'm looking at this letter year. So you'd like me to speak to your group on spam cell research. I think i can make that speech. I heard spam cell research. And i tell matt bolts and andy masur. The two guys in our who've said there's a lady who wants him to speak about stem cell he thinks it's called spam sell. I said now there's a speech. I wanna hear and we all start laughing. And he's on the phone with mary. He hears us all laughing and he knew we were kind of laughing at him. Because that's what we did so it looks at us of scowls at and you still leaving the voicemail to marry and he looks and says oh blank blank blank blank. All of you guys and then of course. We laughed even harder when he said that then he realizes easter leaving the voicemail with. Mary and mary heard every word he just said at. Oh mary abso- sorry. I didn't mean to say that. But yes i will talk to your group on spam cell research. And we'll talk later. Thank you goodbye out. That marysville has voicemail because that right there would be worth its weight in gold. It was beautiful though. He he was a fun guy. He really was even after he lost both of his legs to diabetes and ns no joking matter at all but he did not change. He loved the cubs more than he loved life itself. I think and i. I would like to think that testing games for the cubs in the last few years of his life extended his life and i think he loved been part of the cubs radio broadcast and he loved the division championship. Teams of two thousand three two thousand seven and two thousand eight one of my favorite weekends. Wrigley was a final weekend of two thousand three. But the saturday of the final weekend the cubs sweep doubleheader against the pirates sweep gibbs the comes the division championship great day unbelievable houston have lost earlier the cubs winds who the cubs win the division. It's great stopped. They're going to the play offs. The next day ronn santo has his number ten retired in a special on the field ceremony before the final game of the season. I got to be the master of ceremonies and introduce ron santo. But you talk about a big weekend at wrigley field sweeping a doubleheader winning the division ron santo. Getting number ten retired on the sunday. That's about as big as it gets. Well we know pat at the is big gets when it comes to ron. That was as good as it gets but when it comes to championships well there's nothing right now. At least i can duplicate two thousand sixteen now. We know that everything went down at progressive field but to be able to be on the call and in the senior. Your scorecard from the final game might santini. Our boss over at marquee sports network. He has game seven final. Scorecard says pat hugh scorecard mic. Hold on a second. Pat gave you his original scorecard. I guess it's a facsimile donald. Think you're letting anybody that right there but to see that two thousand sixteen cubs team game four flew in from los angeles. They lost but i stopped in my guns. I said three game winning streak starts tonight. Boy do they ever start at three game winning streak in game five. The friendly confines pat. Even as you start talking about a goal. I start smiling. Just just thought the memory of the world series and coming from Three games to one behind and then game seven was an amazing game. It was a good old fashioned. You know back and forth tog and pull and you know the the indians getting the the run by j davis in the eighth inning to tie the game off a rollers chapman of people said. Were just sick to your stomach. I said will a no because baseball be. The indians are in the world series to. Let's give them respect. The it does not surprise you when a good team makes a comeback and finally it did not make me sick because it only tied the game now had the cubs gone behind. At that point. That would have been a different story. It's the eighth inning. Then you think oh. We're down to three outs. And now we trail. But i knew the cubs had a great offense. I knew also that the indians were starting to run out of their best pitchers. And i knew the comes. Offense could do some damage against almost anybody and that's what happened. They scored two in the top of the tenth inning. The indians got one. And then i got a chance to be the first cubs announcer to say the chicago cubs when the world series and Ivo by get a chance to say that again real soon. I hope so too. Because you'll give me chill bumps then as you just stay right there. I mean four years ago and counting but it still feels pretty good it. You know what. I can't believe. How much time has gone by. It's like it was yesterday. And i vividly recall so much about that. Game dexter fowler hitting the home run and the to run scoring on the wild pitch for the indians and miguel montero getting that clutch single in the tenth inning to make a two rodley ben zobrist. Rbi double just out of the reach of ramirez third base to give the comes the lead but so many images and our bias. A home run to right center in that game david. Ross in his final big league game leave. It goes deep against andrew miller one of the best pitchers in the game at the time. That's that's hollywood. Stuff right there. And then david ross becomes the manager of the team but they carry david. Ross off the field. After the game on the final play kris bryant. Yes i did see. His foot slipped as he made the throw and rizzo thank. Goodness anthony is six five or six four. He reached up to save what might have been a wild throw so many images And people say well. Did you plan out what you were going to say. And i said well. Yes and no i mean you want to say something about you. Know the cubs winning the world series but approaching that moment. I didn't want to be about me. And i wanted to be a good clean clear call And i wanted to first of all be honest to the radio audience. Because that's what i am. Radio man not tv guys on television committee treated differently radio. You have to make that final call. I was able to say grounded. Slowly toward third. Bryant will glove throat areso. It's in time. I had to wait for joe west of above the right arm. It's in time and that took discipline. I did not want to jump the gun and say you know it's time in the ball goes over anthony's head so there were so much going on and i really fight to keep emotions under control But i would. I was okay. It's not the greatest call that's ever been made. I'll grant you that. It was the best i could do at that moment. And and i can live with it but you know when people say will you know did you. Did you plan it out. I said well. Let's pay two different scenarios. One would be. It's an eleven. Nothing lead for the cubs with two outs in the bottom of the inning. Bottom of the ninth inning. So that's one feeling a blowout not not much tension or you can have the nerve wracking feeling that we all did in actuality in game seven in cleveland which is a a cliffhanger and crazy and you know you're just hanging on the edge of your seat so those are two different feelings if you thought of something to say cole and it might fit one of those scenarios but it might be completely inappropriate for the other. So i didn't go down that path. I just wanted to make the final call. Get out the fact that the The cubs won the world series. I actually meant to say the longest championship drought in the history of americans for its is over. It came out the longest drought. But that's not a big deal. I think people get the idea so it is. It was exciting. It was exhilarating beyond belief. And what. I wanna do it every single day. No but every other year would be. Okay i think most comes venture probably argue with you that it is the greatest call in american sports history. I know that it's something that they've heard over and over again. Like colas saying getting goosebumps right away as soon as you start talking about did in the moments after that it just the minute or You know you guys are off their commercial break. Whatever can take us through that. Like what emotions kind of hidden. When did it really settle into you that this this thing happened. This this huge expansive thing largest drought in american sports. History as you said it's over in these cubs fans are all elated. When did that all set in for you. What was that like you know. It was very cool. Toning and cool to look around in the stands to see. How many cub fans were there. That's a remarkable thing that people don't really make a big deal but how come fans got a hold of between ten and fifteen thousand tickets for a game in cleveland and their franchise hasn't won a world series since nineteen forty eight so that was a pretty big deal for them also but somehow come fans whether they paid a lot of money through scalpers or whatever they got ten to fifteen thousand tickets they all stayed in the stands after the game was over and just to look around coomer nursing look at the number of cubs fans that are you're in cleveland. This is unbelievable and it was so that's that's something that i will never forget Just just how special it was and how much fun. It was But then i went down to the clubhouse joe maddon bless his heart e comes up to me gives me a big bear hug before i can say anything he says. I'm glad we did this for you. And i thought joe me. I'm glad you did it for you. And for the cubs and for fans everywhere but for him to think and to be thoughtful. Enough to say you know from me. I'll never forget. Joe maddon saying that. The great bill murray was in the clubhouse It was a wild scene of of players and media and celebrities and we went into joe. Men's office there was the world series trophy right there on his desk. We took a photo of It was a lot of fun it really was. It was surreal but just to be part of it and then to get back to chicago. I remember the bus time it was a it was a late night game Then the celebration and then They said the bus will be leaving floor. Am and i. I'm pretty sure that's the first time i've ever caught a bus at four. Am in my life but we went to the airport. We took the charter home. We landed at about five. Five thirty at o'hare took the buses to wrigley. And there were there were hundreds maybe even a thousand fans at wrigley at six in the morning. This is five hours after the game had ended media. Was there yet local television cameras. I did several interviews and it was just it was it was exciting. It's hard really to put into words. How much fun and how exciting that was. Mainly i knew how special it was to the millions of people all over the world. You know lot of people said. Were you thinking about ron santo. During game seven and i said well yes. But i think about ron santo. Every day anyway our business partners of partners for fifteen years. He was a big part of my life. So yes i was thinking about ron but i was also thinking about ernie banks and harry carey and jack rick house and the millions of fans who never got to live long enough to experience what you and i did that special night and it was very emotional to think about all those people thank goodness there were millions more who did experience a and they'll never ever forget it absolutely pat. Now you've worked alongside hall of famers ford c frick award winners. You called world series championships. Also no hitter so when all the dust settles when you're able to get on that horse ride off into the sunset. How do you wanna be remembered as someone who did not fall off the horse. First of all. I don't know i think i do my best. I think i'm so lucky to have this job. I love to have fun. I love to learn things. I love to read about baseball street. I'm i'm addicted to crossword puzzles and vocabulary. So i get to use words in my job. i was raised in a family of learning. My father was a college professor. My mom was a an elementary school teacher. So i like talking. I like having fun. I love being the voice of the cubs. I really do i mentioned earlier. This is not a steppingstone to go somewhere else. When i leave here. I do not think there's any possibility i would ever broadcast a game for another team. I'm not sure of that. But that's the way i feel So i want to stay here. As long as i'm healthy and having fun and if i feel like i'm still doing an effective job because like i said we had this great position Ron coomer zach zaven metros in our boss. The cubs the fans the excellent team. It's been such a special five or six seven years here lately. I've loved the whole twenty five years been with the cubs but in particular lately i it's been extra-special so i'm just i'm a lucky guy I don't analyze what people think of me. That's up for them. I hope it's positive. I think most of it is But i hope that when they hear my name they smile at it reminds them of the comes may be having a good time. It might remind them a lot of people. Say you're the voice you're the soundtrack of my summer. Well that's that's not a bad thing to be thought and it says when i hear your voice i immediately think back to when i was fifteen years old and it was you and ron santo. My family was all around. We were taking a trip. We're in the car we were listening to you on the radio that's cool. I love that. So i don't know it's it's hard to really say how you want to be remembered i guess in a word favorably as we're reflecting on your career at we've talked about the world series we've talked about no hitters and and some around santa stories but reserve ever in average tuesday or or just a regular game that maybe doesn't stand out to a lot of other fans but for you when you're sitting at home in ends maybe more quiet you think back in your. That was awesome to me. That was this memory. And there's maybe nothing remarkable about it but it was. You know there were some games like that that just stood out to you for whatever reason and became some of your favorites. A good good question. Tony and Probably a imagine the kerry would game earlier. That was in a sense. Kind of what you're talking about came out of nowhere. It was a sleepy wednesday afternoon. A wrigley only about eighteen thousand people were there. It rained off and on during the game. eighteen thousand. I've laughed with kerry wood about that since then he says i've had at least a hundred and eighty thousand people. Tell me they were there that day. It's like wilt chamberlain's one hundred point gain back in. I think one thousand nine hundred sixty two and hershey pennsylvania. He says there have been about a quarter of a million people at least will before he passed. He said at least a quarter of a million people said they were there that night in actuality. The attendance was two thousand or something in hershey pennsylvania. But i i think Part of what. I like about baseball. Is that things happen out of the blue. You've never seen them before. You probably will never see them again. just odd plays where a ball is being thrown or there's confusion whether the ball is caught or trapped you know being thrown away How about that. we're double play. The we just saw in the postseason between atlanta and the dodgers Runners at second and third with nobody out and a ground ball to third base and turns into a five to six. Let's see is that right. Five six double play. Yeah and also. The inning is over and atlantic. It's nothing that was the turning. Point in in that ballgame has no question about it in my mind but It's hard to. It's hard to pick out just an obscure game. I guess i just love the game or it's It's it's both simple at. It's very complex. The same time the more you know about the game the more complicated. It is but it's enjoyable for kids. That are ten years old or senior citizens who are eighty men women all kinds of educational backgrounds love baseball all kinds of ethnic backgrounds love baseball. So it's a beautiful thing that brings a lot of people together on a daily basis every spring and summer day pat. I like to steal this phrase from my dad. I try to use it as much as possible but they always say that. The biggest room in the house is the room for improvement. So if you could give any piece of advice to the youngsters out there who listened to you on a day to day basis and let them know that you know your career. It's it's how you finish. It's not necessarily how you start. What would you tell. I would say Tried to find something that you enjoy. Whatever if you're in high school or college and you're wondering what are you gonna do with your with your career. I would say trying to find something you have passion for something you really enjoy and if you can make a living doing that that passion then so much the better but that should be unimportant thing. Not everyone can be a big league baseball announcer. Not everyone can be a ball player or a singer or an artist or or whatever. Our tv star So there's great competition. But i would never discourage anyone from doing anything if you have the talent and the passion and you're willing to work for it you can do anything and i'm living proof. I came from nothing. I'm i was a kid from san jose california. I love sports. I didn't know anybody in professional sports at all. Like i said my dad was a college professor. He coached all of our little eighteen. He threw batting practice. Shot baskets with us all the time. It doesn't matter what your background is. You can do it but you have to be wanting to To work for it and to put every bit of your energy into it. What's the same all in. You have to be all in. So i don't know as cliche as it sounds. Pat like you said if you find something that you love to do. You'll never work a real job a day in your life in a by the looks of it you just go in there. It's it's a it's a passion for you. It's not necessarily a job. You just get to go to ten sixty west. Addison and you get to call cubs games every single day in. What would a lucky fan base. The cubs fans aren. And how lucky were we to have you on the show today. We're extremely lucky. Pat always a pleasure. Great to catch up with you. Thanks so much for taking time on your busy schedule for us. Happy to do it. Cole hamels tony call. You said one keyword there you get to broadcast the games at wrigley and that's precisely correct People sometimes they have a job. They say i have to do. I have to do that. I get to broadcast cubs games against the cardinals. I get to cover postseason games. Chicago cubs i. I was lucky enough to get to do game. Seven of the world series back in twenty sixteen so getting to do it Feeling privileged and fortunate is a very strong feeling that i have about doing this job coal so that was the right word yet.

Switching Donations To Save Gun Rights; Jim Details His Gun Rights Plan; What To Do With Guns You Don't Want: Gun Talk Radio | 11.15.20 After Show

"So you've made it through three hours of be regular show on terrestrial radio and you wanted a little bit more. So that's why you found the gun. Talk after shell podcasts. Where we saved all the best things that we can't say on regular radio now. Here's tom michelle and jim for the gun. talk after. show time for after show Canty michelle cleveland and the ever present and very welcome generator. Running in the background by personal mantra. Aren't you glad you put in the generator. Oh yeah yeah no doubt second or third time bill out where you got like going on seventy this up to seventy miles an hour oh okay. The power's out. Let's go fly in. Yeah right here's walk out there and spread your arms out and you'll take off a nice kite tom. It's no. yeah by hawaiian shirt wearing that nice thing is the leaves are cleared from the yard. No kidding neighbors problem. But cleared god's leaf blower right here. All my neighbors and other neighbors went to miami two years. Yeah we're not actually. I don't think you're making headway. You're just moving around right say well. Hey brad called in. Let's talk with him for a second year at a topeka kansas brad. Thank you for your patience. You're on the after. Show what what's going on Good to talk to you I told your screeners. I wrote a check the other night to shoot in usa. The olympic training center in colorado goal. I'm going to hold that and divert those funds to win. Read in georgia I just can't believe Some of the hesitancy. I hear it in the voices of your callers about You know not answering your question and and evidently not willing to give to To a much needed victory. We need georgia. People don't understand that if the democrats win. Those two races are firearm. Manufacturing industry and our ammunition manufacturing industry as far as billion world is concerned basically going to be destroyed. We have to do something and people have to get involved. I understand what you're saying. First of all thank you for doing that. And because you basically you see. Clearly i share your. I don't know if it's frustration or bewilderment at people who don't seem to understand the immediate threat sometimes it's like there's a threat over the rise and kind of thing you know it's just amorphous thing it's out there but this is a very specific. This is two races. We win these and we live to fight another day. We lose these. And they have an absolutely clear path to push through every gun control and gun ban effort that they want including and you made a great point they wanna get rid of this protection lawful commerce and arms act if they do that then gun makers essentially have no insurance they have no protection leaker protection. They have to go out of business. They people go. I don't think people actually understand brad. When we say that the gun companies will go out of business. They will all stop making guns. Absolutely everything firearms related will be affected from like. I said the firearm industry to If you have any defensive carry insurance which. I do Those are going to be out loud. It's just so many things that are going to happen. That people really need to think about this. You know and people complaining right now. Jim about finding ammo. If they get rid of that protection lawful commerce and arms act the ammo makers will have to stop making ammo to. I mean they'll make ammo for the military and the police. But if you get caught with authorized ammo that could be a crime. Anything you can tie liability to proceed living exactly. Are you in a position where you get to talk with other gun owners and friends out there. I'm just wondering are any of them aware of this. That your that you know of Well yes but i you know i have some friends just like Some of the people you've talked to Go to my church. And they just can't their firearm owners. They just can't they well in the past they may have changed their minds now but in the past they oh you know this pine sky. This won't happen but it's happening and if we don't do something it's going to happen and you know all i know to do is spread the word try to educate people and i guess at a certain point. You go okay. I'm just not going to get everybody and some of them are never gonna get there but point. I just don't quite understand when we have victory right there in all it's going to take is each of us doing a little bit not a lot. We don't have ask. People sell their homes for heaven. Sakes there's hardly anybody out there that can put in fifty bucks honest about well. The money is needed to promote the The ideas of Freedom and what can happen to us if that freedom is taken away. And i think i'm praying that there's enough people in georgia that Will come along with that. And i appreciate your show promote this and It's gonna affect everyone here in the united states one of the problems that we have right. Now here's a reality of it. Is that the. Nra has crippled itself so horribly normally they would have armies of people out there working the get out the vote they have all the field reps. I mean pool all their fear ups from all of the country and put them on the ground in georgia and last i heard they're having some kind of virtual meeting for their field reps. But they're not moving about george's like they're not even there so we're working at a real deficit. We don't have our star. Mvp player on the field. This year for this election is telling you wonder where all that money went that we sent to that a million dollars a month for wayne's legal fees. Yeah a million dollars in that many more money until that situation. Taken care of there's other places Just like olympic shooting. And and now this 'cause then money could be sent to atta boy breath just going to say good job for your due diligence and in finding places to be able to support our shooters the industry. Yeah well you guys have a good day and thanks for all you do. Thank you sir. Thanks for your doing here so michelle. You're you're actually working the phones you're talking to the people calling in. I keep waiting. We're going to get this avalanche of people who are going to call in and say. Yeah i'm on board. You're not getting that either you well. Unfortunately i had one person to with brad being one of phone. Yeah i mean one guy wanted to know the information on where to go to Be able to donate. And and i i get people are leery with putting their credit card information phone number because you put his credit card and he's gotten stung with internet purchases going instant. Maybe well and as. I told him go to the grocery store by one of those visa or mastercard gift cards whatever you want you can put it on that anything else. Get you a fifty dollar mastercard prepaid auto. He paid card and then use that to make your donation. Oh yeah perfectly safe. And at a time when gifted christmas actually pretty good at money laundering. This is great. I display. I'm just using a way to get my kroger bonus points for no no but it does make sense. I mean it's protection for yourself if you really want to donate and you really are worried about that. You know what the credit card i understand. You know you're penalized. They give you back the money and then they investigate and it may or may not work out to your opinion. You know i i get it. I thought about that. That's actually great. I just go buy one of those. Prepaid mastercard leases use. That burn it all up. Burn up all the money on it and there's no way that anybody can go get any other money out of it because that's all that was in her and i don't know why that wouldn't be of viable way to To make payment. I haven't played on your forehead for that one. That's a good thing. Or jim could just share with us now. His credit card information. We could all use that. I can tell you what ends in south ends up right. You know at a time when amunition is not tangible. You know so whatever. It's going to cost you twenty nine thirty nine. You name your caliber. you name your price. Basically but you know can't buy a box of ammo okay. Well i can give thirty nine dollars or twenty five dollars or maybe it's only five dollars. You know everything. Everything goes through this and the longer ammunition is not tangible. The more you gotta wonder if there's not something else to worry you got got caught us at his buddy. What did you say you had a hundred and forty five thousand rounds of nine. Well some people want to know. Where's the ammo right there right. It's you know if everybody bought a thousand rounds of whatever it is they need or wherever they bought have a much needed to shoot. We'd be good isn't that'd be no ammo shortage but if you buy your next ten or twenty or thirty years worth a new we create. This is just like the toilet paper shortages.

Funny i mean. He knew a lot of famous Comedians he's euchre was just always hilarious. You know so yeah it was. It was a fun time weird. Like twelve or fifteen years that they did that campaign which is a long long time to campaign but fun stuff. You get a bunch of ex jocks together and turn them loose you loosely. Give them a script and hope crossing fingers. Maybe that's what we should start doing. Get a script. And hope. I've heard of hope and change but scripted hope. No we're not going right. No script you kidding me. We don't need no stinking script. I wrote opening monologue so this show twice for the first two shows twenty five years ago and then i stopped. People say well. How much do you prep. I said i don't you guys know. I walk in and we turned it on and i have no idea how we're going to start the show. It's fairly obvious anybody who's ever listening. Especially the that's really bad. We got prompt him in his ear. It's called gun talktime remember. They couldn't talk. That's what channel i energy. Where am i. What are we doing here now. I'm sorry but there. It is so do you think assuming okay. I'm just gotta make the assumption at this point soon. He gets in. Can you make four years no way or does he do. They dragon through four. That he's going to say. I'm going to not run and have camera run. That would be. I think a logical. They'll find a way to drag it through four years. Okay we should. We should bet a box on that one. Oh good i like betting with non existent things. I don't have to worry if i lose bad but can't find any how 'bout underneath your toilet. I will bet you when bullet berry back. that'd be kind of fun to have a poker game where you're playing with. Just like you know. Loaded components that have bullets out there got instill raise primer primers. Some brass a nine millimeter bullet is a five and a forty five as a tan. So we should do like a chess set like that or may vary our. Fd guy only carried one round. This is true barney barney. All you need has bernie. Bullet in his pocket shirt pocket. Tried to place the be if you ever needed it. That's true and then you could. He would have a revolver course. Donald did his whole shaky thing. Pull it out shaking all over the place. Great yeah fun stuff. I see here to the biden thing a year to year if that yep well then we have pelosi as vp. Be great tom. Are you okay time. I'm sorry about a heart heart you okay. Just take the wires out of the wall and put them against your chest like in the movies. You can do your own defibrillator right here. Hopefully the generator holds out for that. Start after gallon effort though. That's right so for selling the lines. Were really dim having visions of course leach men and young frankenstein. The lights are plastic. prob lugar well. I have no idea. what would i am. Challenge your by mail. I'm lost it's gone. It's the after showtime again. Just do this yeah. Well it's the second half of the after show out so that's after the first half which is after the whole show it's a one and a two and no wait. That's lawrence okay. So anyway well so shell still no ammo stealing guns. It's tough. it's very very difficult. And you know you're calling and you're talking to representatives with different companies like well we're making it every day and you call your distributors are like. I can't tell you the last time we had ammo and people say well you know man you guys with a gun store. You're making money hand over fist. He'll yeah we would if we had something to sell. Yeah you can't find anything to sell. You can't make any money. it's tough and we're coming up on hunting seasons and it's not just affecting the gun world. I mean it's affecting archery and everything. The inability to get product is is tough work in the manufacturing and all is down in the whole markets. Too i mean buddy bill a two hundred fifty thousand dollars and the price after he closed down it with the bank. Price jumped to three hundred thousand because the price of lumber and availability. If you have not bought lumber in the last year or so in for a rude shock he they say two and a half percent higher. Something i mean it was something. That's well sheet plywood. Here in town is was nine bucks. Now it's twenty seven so that's triple cow more didn't you head. I'm sure if you live down in tornado alley. I'm sure yeah pretty pricy to friday. We drove through lake charles where they had massive hurricanes and just blue tarps everywhere. And you're right trying to just rebuild you can't get the product and you can't afford the products Here's an inch in question for you for those just kind of personal experience i can tell you. Make sure you have replacement value on your items in your house and also you probably are underinsured. You might wanna just take a look at bumping it up because rebuilding your house. They're going to be a whole lot more expensive now that it was a year or two ago. Call it's we haven't talked about it for a long time but also kind of going through and videotaping the end taking hard report of serial numbers and else of your firearms and not leaving. That in your own house are safe. Yeah the records. You have the record someplace else but shell out even before you got here. Michelle jim and i talking about story. I saw where a guy had inherited close to one hundred guns and ripped some really nice guns and he did. He wasn't a gun guy. Didn't know anything about him and didn't want them so he turned them all into the police department so they wouldn't fall into the wrong hands. Oh my gosh. And they destroyed them. Of course it's one of the most telling comments saw story was who the f. would be stupid enough to be into guns like that and then not leave them to someone who knows what the heck they're supposed to do with them and you're going okay so reminder to everyone to not assume that your estate will be dissolved or distributed the way you want spell about and maybe even jim we are returned to this every time right given away before you die that way you know the get of the right person you get to tell the story with them. You get to see the enjoyment if they don't enjoy it take it back a. Why can't somebody else who appreciate the. Why wouldn't you enlist the help of a local gun store. Yes that's what we do all the time. Yes it clears your name in person. That purchases has to go through the forty four seventy three and the fbi background. Yada yada yada. You can make some money doing that and every gun store in the country can do this for you right you go to your local gun starts. They look. I was given these guns. I inherited these kinds. I don't know what to do with them blah blah blah. I don't want them to reform their all hands. Fine how about if we make sure the fbi check everybody who ends up with these guns. Because that's what's going to happen if a gun store sells them for you. A local guy or johnny derek. Kinda guy. yeah. It doesn't matter you got me. Obviously johnny will do it Do he's dot com and we know how well he does but a local store like michelle's that can do the same thing for you as well. Yep you're and and even if you did stores do this they will while. I would think most stores would do this. But they'll do a transfer from personal person in the store. You know they bring in from one person and send it out with the next assumes. The paperwork is done so if you were nervous about. I don't know who's gonna get this done. If they are prohibited person you can run them through a gun store and charge you twenty five to fifty bucks per gun probably something that. That's reasonable okay. Everybody's different something like that and or you could say hey. Would you guys got a whole collection of guns here you know. I don't want them in my house but for heaven sakes don't just give 'em to somebody's gonna destroy them. I mean at the very least imagine this if you go to the store and they sell them to somebody now. Someone who is qualified can have that gun for self protection and may save. Somebody's life right now. I guess the only my only question they're times if the scenario you painted was a potential giving a gun somebody you don't know if they can pass the background check etc. I would remotely consider somebody. I wasn't sure of their background. Your niece nephew. That kind of deal. In i just i would have to be pretty confident ahead of time. Anyway well yeah. I mean you'd want to. That's goes back to know who's going to get them if you're not sure about them than don't have that as part of your will where. Just everything gets distributed evenly right. You know these go to so and so these so and so and why not do it before you croak changed my willow couple years back. Yeah michelle got everything gentleman. Actually actually jason. He's taken them all with him. They say you can't take bs. That's the size of this cough. And i bought man. It's actually from lebanon. Seventy whatever size coughing. You think you need okay. So what will that goldenrod. Rust preventative thing. Working there. the question. Yeah that's really. A lockdown puck. Retrieve an ed very easily. Oh goodness gracious well. At least we got steph. We can laugh about it. Still go out and do some shooting and for those who are just didn't plan ahead don't have any ammo. You know what you could. You can buy one of these really nice air guns. We have now. Because i think you can still get bb pellets. Air right. we had a back order. That i'm really sorry. Shame i will say there was About a month month and a half or so that we couldn't get bb's even wow now. I mean everything was gone. Gresham's mouth when he was a kid. Still they're spitting them into that gun. Baby we didn't actually wear it out and you guys who just arrest from the inside out. Yeah look we. That was i was. I tried to be good but man they were just some birds that were just their head to get shot. We're going to tell you but only once generally yeah we had a We lived on a lake and down. They get walk out of the house. Kind of go down a hill shoreline there. There's a big light pole down there and had one of those big lights on it with a aluminum dome shape reflector on it You'd be amazed how well you hit that thing baton seventy yards away with the bb gun. Once you figure it out the drop on any my baby to wait. Wait wait cool. Did you have a friend named huck got white wash. That jerry is far friend at this. Have kids went out with a bb gun one time and i think we're going to go shoot a bird. Shoot a bird you're gonna have to. You know you have to dissect stuff us just not going to just kill something to learn something from it and then you're going to have to say that was the first half that was only knew about so sure enough. I figured you know it'd probably dissuade them. A little bit at all not at all they bring them into the kitchen. Dot check this up. What part is that dad. Take it apart part right there. Yeah yeah so thorough. Thing and the allergy i made i figured well. Okay make them write a letter to the birds. Mother samuel. sorry ask for not we. We learned something. We know that by the way in junior was delicious. Just no state. Birds state or national are off the autumn there. That's right well for us. It was squirrels not sub squirrels. But mostly it was snakes and turtles Yeah yeah sip. Along a little. John boat along the shoreline with my brother pattern from the back and i'm in the front with that little.

Hour 2: Rick Harrow

"Pride passionate and pageantry of college. Football leaves here. The paul finebaum show our podcast. Continue here on a very busy friday afternoon. Then there's baseball going on as we speak and it started a little bit late because of cozy right now bottom of the third top of the fourth. I should say Both most buying quite well about Nc state going up against rocker and One hit in the game for not a lot to talk about yet but there was plenty to talk about before the game. And we're gonna get to that story in a minute There's a it was crazy. The game supposed to start at two o'clock it was put off till three and the reason was cova. Da a number of key players on the nc state team were ruled out of this game and presumably tomorrow if andrew belt wins because of issues and the covert protocol They ended up with What thirteen or fourteen players so A number of them. The shorthanded as you can you can play. They voted to play the game. As opposed to forfeiting. There's another game tonight as mississippi state Hoax to get to the championship round with a win over texas. Longhorns have to win twice status course to and against texas to season. This is old hat for texas They've won six titles or thirty seven. Cws appearance steak has been there twelve times. Seven o'clock tonight on espn and as a result of what's happened out in in omaha conversation about covert here for the first time in a long time dr called in about thirty minutes ago from seattle admonishing all of us for not having taken taking the vaccine. He said it should be mandatory. Naturally there was a little bit of response from the caller. So let's get back to the calls. And mike is up next in texas. Hey mike hey we're doing great. Mike thank you dr seattle and wanted to mandate that. We get this vaccine. Well that's not going to happen. The fda is not authorized vaccine for a reason. Would you mike. What did you say going by the fda that's not authorized. The fda has not approving this any of these vaccines the hospital in houston hospital in houston. Hundreds of doctors and nurses walked out because they were not going to take the vaccine. They lost their jobs because they were not gonna take vaccine known. Ask you a question. Mike i why would a I'm just curious you of their. I don't why would a doctor a nurse walk out on their job over this. They were forced to okay if they not take the vaccine. They were forced to resign or quit. Okay and they're and they're they're. They're in their explanation for not taking. The vaccine was what. I don't know i don't i don't know any of these. These folks that work there when people will work at the hospital and they have their careers. They walk away from their careers because they do not want this vaccine in their body. It says a lot to me. Have you talked to any doctors who have taken the vaccine now. Had you taking the vaccine have yes your wife to Well yeah. I leaned on her pretty Pretty heavily for advice. I mean she's a doctor. I'm a talk show host so yeah. She got the she got the first week. It was available because her the hospital issues works with you know. We're able to get it right around christmas And she was she was the first week and got it. And i mean nobody mandated it but certainly In in our world. And i'm i'm not speaking for houston. She doesn't practice in houston The majority of the people that she worked with Did the same thing well i. There's i mean ninety percent of the people i know are not going to be taking the vaccine. Okay listen we're making clear to you mike I got the advice of a physician. And and i would never tell you what to do. I i'm not qualified. Okay another note Do we know texas quarterback. Is you know we don't we don't we don't know that officially But but that's okay. Well we can we. Can you get with matt. And if If i ain't am somehow beats alabama. Then i'll buy has season tickets for the next year and if alabama stops am. Then he don't need to call again until the following year got it. Thank you go. Get something important Jim up next in saint louis. Hello jim the gentleman. Before james in alabama it took took my thunder because he said exactly what i was going to say You know some people just aren't going to take it. I guess it's a matter of personal choice and that's the way it's gonna be But moving on different subject. I've been wanting to call you I'm gonna ask you a baseball trivia. Tergat trivia question okay You know even the sixty four. Saint louis cardinals. I was I was twelve years old in nineteen sixty four. So i'm a little bit older than you are. And we know that. Tim car was the starting catcher for memphis Do you know who the backup. Catcher was woo. I'd off the top of my head which is leaning heavily on about fifty fifty five years or more of memory. I cannot tell you that. Very long person bob euchre. I hadn't i did not realize that. Wow bob euchre was the backup. Catcher now did not know that. And i again i maybe i did and in the sixties but i i don't i don't now. That's that's amazing. Yes he did he. Did he ever play much very much. He didn't play very much but he was the backup. Catcher that was his You know obviously a great career outside of baseball well. It was announced here but but yeah he was backup catcher for that team. That's amazing. I appreciate you telling me that jim. I i have offered you one hundred names of major league players of that era and i would not have gotten that right right right. Well yeah i guess a lot of people know that you know since i was i grew up here in saint louis and follow the cardinals my whole life. I coulda have gone around. You know i got a gun. Bore your bell wide hobby air. But i could not gangway. Macarbre simmons But i could barney schultz. But i couldn't have gone euchre. That's pretty amazing. You remember barring team i sure. Do bali relief pitcher. He was Barney schultz at the time was in his forties. I believe yeah he was. Yeah yeah he came out. And that year he saved a lot of games and was curt simmons. One of the pitchers curt simmons. Bob gibson i think rates that aki racer dickey absolutely. I remember that name ray washburn. Yeah exactly no. That's it's amazing. What a of young kids back in the day couldn't remember Right nearly sixty years later. And i can you know you used to listen to harry carey actors. Harry carey was the best. Now i still remember listening Jim the on that sunday. They won the. The cardinals won the pen. I had that record my parents give give it to me for my For christmas or whenever it came out. And i must have listened to take a million times. I still have a two. that's amazing. Hey thanks for the call. Really appreciate it okay. Wow pretty amazing memories there. Simon is in california. Hello simon so my goodness gracious. So everybody's talking about. I'm not gonna say nineteen thing but did that doctor actually say that prevents you from getting it. Because there seems to be some controversy. There i have a friend who's a medical doctor and he says what it does is that minimizes the effect of covert nineteen. Well i. I'm not i'm not i think You know as best. I could explain. The number. one value of the vaccine will is to mitigate a serious illness in the event that you have it back and the big push was. The death rates will go down dramatically. If you're inoculated it it will not prevent you. I mean i. I mean i mean i know i know people that have tested positive after having the vaccine right and there's also this thing it's whether you're on a team or you're an individual you know if you're on a team you will want to prevent your teammates from getting it so you would probably want to get another subject. This last caller called in about The baseball a cardinal. You mentioned dan muzio. He did not And the reason the reason. I think. I think stan had retired by that By that season okay. Yeah i remember. He had a free thirty lifetime batting average. No no i mean he's Arguably the most famous cardinal of them all well. that's not a lot of time at forcement park in st louis as well anyway so okay. So i misunderstood. It doesn't prevent you from getting listen I mean vaccines are controversial. There's no getting around it. And i the biggest on your age. You're older person like me. Then you probably should take picture know but if you're younger person maybe not. But nobody knows the long term effect. That's that's the problem you know. What simon. On the other hand nobody knows a long-term effect. Either way of what you're going to get out of the vaccine or if you had if you had cove and that's the that's the big mystery that that concerns people is what's going to happen later on. I mean you may you ma. I mean we all know people that have had it and have gone through very well. Some some died. obviously that. that's an understatement. But you have other issues which jackley but okay but now talking about side effects of medication. I'm legally blind because of the site effective medication. So you know. You gotta be wary. Do own or rent your home. Share you and i bet it can be hard work. You know it's easy. Bundling policies with geico geico makes it easy to bundle your homeowner's or renter's insurance along with your auto policy. It's a good thing too because you already have so much to do around your home. Go to geico dot com quote and see how much you could save. Its geico easy visit. Geico dot com today. that's geico dot com aplin. happily back is style up. never beat new track. My grandma's back in mystic. Got the suzy down three point party. Nine messy my third game off as down. Espn app download now. No i will tell you this simon. I'm sorry to hear that. I will tell you though a encountered very few hospitalizations in my life in almost every time that i have the sickest i have been is from the medication. Not from the illness exactly right well. I yeah there. There are reasons why they're a you know the. Fda is an existence. again. I apologize to everyone for for having to go down. This road again We we've been down this road so many times and i if you just getting on off work or getting home and you're wondering why are we still talking about this We're talking about it again. Because of of what has happened today out in omaha and then a doctorate came on and Chasta is the entire world for not having being fully vaccinate. We'll take a break. We'll move on from that subject and talked to more of you at eight five five two four thousand seven hundred eight five also joining us about the busy week of college sports for backward to and listening to paul finebaum show podcast. We're back and we've talked about what has been going on all day in omaha to college world series. Ricardo is out there rick. Thank you for joining us. I'm curious there's a lot to talk about but you know what what was. What was it like when everyone in. That stadium started getting the word a couple of hours ago that There was a major news development with the college world series. Yeah well i was planning on just talking about traditional you know economic impact seventy years in you know three hundred thousand attendance back after cove. Wrinkle was about one. Oh five or so. The press box people are trying to figure out what was going on and then there was kind of a news blackout. Which the last place you'd expect that is in the press box and people were talking about a cold protocol delay didn't even say covic and and then the twinkling in who it was and what it was you know. Hip is on the other side of this. The privacy issues and you gotta be very careful about that then they now still starting time and then you got these statistics distributors which is interesting of the players. And they divided into starters in non-starters but didn't say how many the non starters were not going to be uniform. Count the number of players out there for the national anthem. Thirteen that includes all the pictures. So you know something's going on and then you realize that the hitting statistics were show at the last three guys in the lineup at three hits the entire season and and and when you think about all of that you realize that this was the most unusual couple of hours we've ever seen in college baseball and rec. I mean there's so many different opinions about whether this game should have gone on We had a physician calling us saying that. Everyone's at risk. I have neuropathy. I'm not there and and and i don't think we really know. What surprising is i mean. We're still talking about his. Even though i know we're we're still dealing with it. We jon rahm knocked out of a tournament with a six shot. Lead a month ago so Just the impact of this. What do you think it will be on everything else moving forward. Well here's the issue everybody got to get vaccinated and you know. I don't know the story. Nobody does yet of how many of these players have the opportunity to get vaccinated but got turned down or excuse me rejected it and the masks now. Even in the press box here are voluntary instead of mandatory Hopefully people match up masks with vaccines. But that's going on all over the country as we know when you look outside in the in the stadium. It's kind of same kind of thing. Very few people are wearing masks although it is outdoors and it is warm. So that's not the issue as much as the players themselves and how far you're able to take this where you're in an active situation. The changes every minute. Now you know who knows what's going to happen tomorrow if nc state continues to to play with maybe one loss There each one run ought to be enough because nobody's come close to hitting rocker but Oh ironically i'd say that there's a single down the line but you know the bottom line of all this is that This is not over because you still got tomorrow. Nc state who's going to survive no matter what and then what about all the other team so this is a An ongoing situation. What's the bottom line if vaccinated not only are you a lawyer. You're harvard law graduate. You teach there. You're called upon to give thoughts on the intersection between sports and law which there have been of this week but let me ask you about the legality of forcing people to do it. I i know that they're encouraged. But can you. Can you just deal with where we are right now because there's a lot of misunderstanding of of of you know whether businesses can do it whether universities can do it whether anyone can do it and that's a great question because it is evolving ongoing. There's texas there's a houston with a with a hospital in houston and and and and there will be a significant litigation out of that And the you know. The current state of of the law is state by state. Actually almost county by county You if you're an employment situation regarding public safety have more of a standing force. The people that are working for you to get vaccinated or you don't put him on the front lines lot different than a non essential situation. You are to either require vaccines or masks. That you probably can't require both today. It isn't evolving situation and the reason. Why can't be more definitive than that is. It is changing same thing about the the an i l. after all the same thing about What's going to happen with the benefits. Heather to education which is also after all so we have quick. Have a lot to talk about and Lawyers can help on this guidance wise but at the end of the day it There's there's no real firm on all of it. Let me get to awesome before you go back to the game rick because sometimes cases you know they they deal with a specific issue and it's really what happens afterwards the interpretation and even the perception so a couple of days removed. What does that case going to mean. Moving forward we always spend more time in. This is not a to get on again. But but this is. You can't be entered in a minute. So allston basically it takes the Supreme court case in nineteen eighty-four a television and the oklahoma plaintiff and does kind of some of the same stuff visit violation of anti-trust. You can't limit the ability of athletes get paid with the devil's in the details and so conferences. You may be able to do it. Just like conferences. 'cause did all the television deals after after the four case But you gotta do it quickly and you got to do it with some firm hand. It's gotta be reasonable States nineteen of them are now looking to Control federal government. Probably staying away from this and also what is what are benefits related to education. Well you know. The supreme court says that's okay Does that mean computers that are of gold plated. Give it to the top high school athletes about study abroad. That sounds like a perk to me. And what about recruiting shouldn't allow colleges to have an unfair advantage and recruiting. But again the devil's in the details there are hundred questions to this and only a couple of an answer. The only one that's really been answered. His the fact of education will a athletes or athletes who are A supposedly students not being able to get any benefits that is out the window nine. Finally rick I mean we know that the gorsuch wrote the nine oh opinion and then but so much has been paid. Attention has been paid to cavanaugh's he where he said. The nc double a. is above the luck. And you can you help us understand the significance of that or is that just something that that looks good and a headline. That really doesn't have any meat. Looks good in the headline and to meet You know Alito wrote wrote an opinion as well that basically said Or lead no. Excuse me ask questions. In the oral argument of gorsuch wrote the opinion and cavanaugh was is supporting opinion but many of the justices. The oral arguments ask some questions. But if i'm the ncaa. I'm worried alitas questions. Were what about all these coaches making all these dollars. Should we care about that. Well you know. There's nothing in the opinion about that. But you can see how all of these justices feel about this. And it's very rare to get a nine hundred anything. So you know. Cavanaugh was specially expressive about it and not more expressive than any of these other folks. But the ncaa's got to figure out quickly how they want to recover and they better figure out. Some reasonable method that all people by a two. Or we'll be back at the court level and there's gonna be no recourse this point. Thank you live in with the latest from the cove. A scare at the college world series. We are coming back with much more. Your phone calls are next. We're an hour away from the commissioner of the sec. A lot to talk to him about but we do want to get his thoughts on on the sudden kovic scare the in hasn't changed the calculus for what is ahead this summer and fall to listening to paul. Finebaum show podcast. We are back and charles is up next. Hello good afternoon. Hello hey how are you. I'm well the first time. Caller been listening to you for about twenty years every since The trees were poisoned on the planes. And your show blew up. Thank you very much Well i'm not happy about that but By appreciate you listening absolutely. I know we don't want to go down this road too much longer. But the whole point about the vaccination Are you aware that the cdc came out this week and gave a warning that young men that are taking this vaccination or having the side effect of an enlarged heart Yes i did see that so you know my problem with the doctor that called earlier. Is this absolute language thing. It's not if it's not fda approved and it's totally safe. Are you aware of the british. Airline pilots dodd and last several weeks four of them from taking the vaccination stories. I did not see that. And you know my point is a to pick on you a little bit. I would love to see some pushback at least Giving a counter perspective have another doctor on. There's plenty of doctors as was the case in. Houston i like the question. You ask the caller why would that. Why would a doctor and nurses walk off the job. And not take the vaccination. I think their actions said why. Obviously they did not want to take it for themselves. So i just say that to say there. Two perspectives and i am tired of people with doctors behind their name. Coming on and presenting. The other side is if we're idiots and you know i'm a i'm a dad of i have seven kids six boys and i do not want my children taking this. Vaccination is an older person honestly. I'd rather die than set them up with some long term side effects of an experimental drug so this whole thing about young people should do it to protect old people. I understand that. But as a father i'll take the hit before i would want my children that they sell charles. I appreciate what you said. The one thing. I don't believe in in i've said this before and i'll say it again. I don't believe in telling people what they should do. And your choice was your choice Obviously and but i would. I am not going to use this form here to try to legislate. What people should or shouldn't do i think most of those can make up our own mind In use commonsense absolutely and just have a problem when people pick on commonsense. There's a lot of people that have hesitancy that intelligent people. And by the way i think e even the most fervent physician for the vaccine will tell you there are some people that should not be taking it but again we're we're all of us like a panacea where we we're all going to be cured and this won't be an issue no but we're not. We're not we're never out running this. I mean this is here and Just a matter of dealing with it absolutely well on joy of enjoyed it for years. Well thank you. Thank you very much appreciate it. have a good day. i will do that. I'll try. i'll try check out. Check out david. Who is up next there. Hello david go right ahead. Paul jarwin was on there because he made a lot more stanton. Dr gay did my heartbeat is still about one twenty riffing right now he got me so dang by the way for those who wasn't dr j. The basketball player. This was Dr j. who is a physician in seattle washington. I'm aware of that but You know my point is just like charles. Say you know you gotta use commonsense to it. Depends on everybody's situation you got seniors you got people that have underlying condition germ. Yeah i think they get it. I practiced pharmacy for years in the military. I studied all the little pamphlets you can get on medicines to study adverse reaction All of that. Good stuff but You know that back for seven years and sit here every day and watch commercials telling me. I probably got cancer from the dan trout. Sure it got you know you can see david. I understand that. And i again let me just re let me. I want to make sure everybody understands why we're having this conversation. about About forty percent of the nc state team got wiped out today because of covid tests. And you know there has been a lot of conversation about testing protocol and listen just as part of the sports world. Just part of the part of all of our world's. I'm going to something in in a couple of weeks where it's a mandatory cova protocol and we've all dealt with it or most of us have and especially people who have been active the entire time and you i. I would love to never have to deal with this again But unfortunately it's reality agree with that. I mean a lot of people may agree with him. Did not a conspiracy theory. But i got sick as a dog in november two thousand. I think i'll never forget it. I thought i was going back. Pretty dang thick and my wife was thirty and nobody heard about a with nineteen. So you know. David you bring that up and i have now read that it was already over here. The reason i say that and anybody. Who remembers i. I barely it was in november last november. I was doing a program. Our friday show outside. And i didn't think i was gonna make it to the end of the show and i still. I still don't know what i had. But i had it because i couldn't talk. I was in it just again. It was a you know could have been a lot of things. I was traveling every day. And you get rundown. That's common sense. You know that from your background but It's it was over here before we were told it was over here. There you go. Well you know what i mean that since i got over finish our anti-biotics and all that we want to thanksgiving that year last thanksgiving with her mom and who i didn't feel good. I finished my botox about four days before and house. Still filling up but we after we got over it. We got on the harley. We rode helen. Georgia gathered under beach. The ones that weren't cancel. Who of those. We wore masks. We walk our hand. We did that stuff and we never got sick again. I think. I think i'm not gonna ever get it again because i think well i know i've got some type of body and whether or not but i hope you know. Listen i. I don't know what i had but i'll tell you i'll take a I'll take waterboarding. Before i go through that again. They man i haven't been back to my doctor and all that stuff kicked off. But when i do i'm gonna say hey you know. My doctor wasn't actually there that day. He took off on thursdays away to another doctor. And of course. Nobody knew anything about kobe. So he said. Oh you guys have a few bronchitis right. That's how you know what. I hit theory before i called you and i said it's a few bronchitis contagious. And they said a few bronchitis is just viral or bacterial. Well i jokingly told a friend of mine david for those of us who were sick in november nineteen we head coach eighteen not covered nineteen. Yeah hey hey paul. Before i let you go. I would like to give a shout out my wife. He's a fast finish nurses so julia but he wrote appreciated. Yeah legend was in here the other day and created quite a stir. Anyway we're up against a break Sometimes you just can't predict stuff. Greg sankey and forty five minutes the commissioner of the fcc. We're coming back right after the. You're listening to the paul finebaum show podcast on the back and mike is up next in kentucky. Hey my good afternoon. Good afternoon ball man i tell you. I don't even know where to start. This is one crazy show. You've got going on brother. I guess i just tell you my own covert experience. I had a headache for a couple of days and it was like a three day. Jim beamer headache. It was pretty severe. I mean i don't do that anymore. But i have my memories and at that time i went to the hospital and they were testing everyone at the door. The rapid tests were out and they tested me and told me to go back to my sit for a few minutes and then this lady walked out like she was at a funeral. Wake and said you have covid. And i'm like really so. They quarantined me for fourteen days and took a couple of bc. Powders and that was. Overconfidence failed very fortunate to be one of the lucky ones that it didn't affect he bad but i feel bad for these baseball players have. Has anyone thought for a moment that these tests there'd be false positive. I mean nick sabin have one i. We had a guy on the other day Whose daughter was trying out for the olympic team and she'd already had cova and she tested positive again and it was a false positive and it can happen to anyone. I mean you would think that they would have had the foresight to test these kids early and just in case there is a false. Well i mean. I don't know i mean there's i don't know what they're testing protocol is and we still haven't gotten a straight answer on that. I'm sure it's probably not as severe as it was a year ago or nine months ago. But you know. I think the ncw has has been what's interesting. And i think mcgee told us earlier. There were sixty four teams in the in the car in the a baseball tournament. Today we are on the on the verge of the finals. This is the first positive test. I think we've heard of. Yeah and it's just. I mean due to the fact. Cdc's already said that that risk of outside friends mission is basically nil unless you're sliding into second base in the inversely kissed this shortstop. Don't you think these kids with survivor game of baseball. I frankly thought the thing. A couple of weeks ago with the golfer was absurd You're you're out there on a let. The guy played by himself. The final two rounds and keep him out of the clubhouse but i mean listen the Whatever you whatever you wanna talk about the it's of the barn and there's no there's no putting it back.

Podcast baseball family were today. We talk about trevor. Bauer getting his wrist. Slapped we have an interview with one of our friends. Bilski and more nine plus presents the baseball together podcast with your host blackjack brad and kansas city little big brighi blue eyes and now baseball together baseball family. We're excited to be here with you today. Welcome to our current events segment of this week's podcast as always. I am brig and i'm joined by brad. How are you brad. I'm making it through break here. I'm gonna make it through. How about that exhaust was honest. That's literally the most honest thing ever daylight savings happen to us. Well to part of us. Today i happened to me hard. And i i. I don't know. I'll probably recover just in time for the time. Change to go back so we'll see how that goes how. Why are you feeling the feeling we're gonna get into it more later. I spent the day baseball game today. So it was. Oh and sunny. And i haven't spent that much time outside in a long time so it kind of got a little bit sunburn. If you're watching on youtube you can see it Got some sun. Today it was nice. But i'm very excited to see your sunburn weird. It is so let's get into this current events right now. The rules there are new rules. Brad being tested in the low minor leagues specifically bigger basis in aaa Why why would just go through all of them. And i'll tell you why they're going to ban what they're calling extreme chefs in aa There's a step off rule in high a. And they're limiting to pick off attempts in low a. The third attempt the runner it's safe. It's considered a bach. Oh my goodness gracious. And then there's an automatic strike zone in the low a. southeast. Oh okay all right. So all of these rules are to get guys still in basis again like all of them bigger basis. You've got a little bit shorter distance between be between bases if you have Six inches less ground to cover the ideas that you're more likely to steal a base. I don't know that it's necessarily true. I feel like the speedsters are going to still more. Because that's x amount of times. Whatever fewer that they are going to be out by an eyelash. Bob euchre major league. You write good. Yes but the guys aren't guys weren't stealing. Visas are still not going to sell basis. Because they're not going to take the risk because they're not gonna they're not gonna lose them their opportunity to be on base by risking stealing a base because again extra six inches. Yeah but brad. What you're asserting is that there is no middle ground that you got your speedsters and you've got your slow pokes. That's that's what you're saying right. So how what is the margin. Look like in the middle. How many of those guys in the middle are going to go into one camp or the other or is there not any middle ground. I think the middle ground is gonna get bigger. Because i think the i don't i don't want to quantify our qualify. The guys who are in the middle ground as like as the slow pokes like you said. But i think they'll be lumped more into that because it's the same thing like you know there's a fifty fifty chance of me not making that and getting thrown out and then we have two outs. Nobody on if i can stand here on first base with one out then i'll stay here and we're going to chance i to third because even then shorter distance right sure. Yeah so i just. I think what it is. It's going to get speedsters running more and it's going to get everybody. Also you know they might get a little bit bigger lead and then make that. Make that run to third base. But we're gonna see necessarily more still stolen bases like they want but if it if it makes more aggressive base running i'm fine. I'm fine with it. But i don't know. Yeah yeah i agree. Yeah it doesn't feel like it's going to make that big of a difference overall though but it's the same thing with with the step off rule what it is no matter what base you're throwing to you have to step off the mound or not the mound with a rubber which brings in a whole new ballgame with lefties. No more andy. Pettitte move right. Hey come on now. Oh it was glorious. It was glorious and you know what because of that move i. There was a kid. I played with in high school he was. He's playing varsity wasp land. Jv and he had that move down. And when we would scrimmage i would literally stand one foot off the base. Because i like you're not picking me off and i'm not very fast on stealing the base anyway so a shot in the gap. I might make it to third base. But i'm not gonna take off you know so but if he had to step off to step up i would have definitely gotten bigger lead. Yeah right Do bad so okay. Hold on okay. Do you think that if there is if these do result in more aggressive base running and if that does result in more stolen bases will it get adopted in the major leagues or will this trend of aggressive base running mentality etc be adopted. Do you think what do you think. Do you think the rules will go before the mindset in the game play This this is what i think. I think that rob manfred is so eager to change the wrong rules that if the if it goes well in the minor leagues that he was a yellow to bring it up to the big leagues. Rather than what. You're saying having a trickle down effect are maybe it's a trickle up. I don't know either way trickle up and justin mentality right where these guys are like culture. Change the guys are like dude. I am still on like seventy basically a year. Because this role i could still seventy bases in the show and then guys are more aggressive. You know you know even if it was sixty basis. Yeah yeah right or or fifty. Five become insane. Now it'd be insane that'd be great. I think i think malik. Smith with the mariners he led led the league in two thousand nineteen forty four stolen bases or something like that. Yeah yeah if you break fifty. It's crazy crate. Greytown fifty since ricky henderson. Let's be honest. Ricky at fifty the break break. You know that's right. I gave a winning more of that. We do need like that. We need more. That's so bad that's as small. We keep talking about man. I know and it's so much work citing and you know is i. It is as a game today. There was quite a bit of. Were quite a bit of baserunners through the course of the game and not one guy even attempted to still base. Okay so then. Why do you say these are the wrong rules. He's trying to change. Because i don't feel like it will apply to to enough people that the specialty guys are going to be even more narrow narrowed in their specialty. Does that make sense. Yes it's not going to have a broad sweeping mentality change. There's not gonna be brought sweeping culture change as far as like guys were like. Oh i can still a base. If i get an extra couple of inches. They're still going to know it's worth it for me to stay to stay. Put so is there. Is there an easy way to increase base running aggressiveness. But how else would you change that. However i don't i don't know honestly the the problem is the analytics taken over in the teams are. It's just not worth it to try to steal base right. you know. maybe it is analytics. Is the problem. Maybe you keep force catchers to stay in a full crowd with runners on base. Whoa whoa man. That's the one. Whoa what would the penalty for that safe. Just the free base. Well balk i think what it is is the catcher. Be in his like his secondary. Crouch sure if somebody tries to steal and he makes a throw him. He attempts to throw the runner safe and he comes all the way up. No no if if he if he doesn't get down into a full crouch before the pitches thrown right. Oh i see what you're saying. Yeah if he's not in a crowd and the pitches thrown and then. The runner tries to steal than the runner is safe. But like if if the catcher is not in his full crouch and they're runs and try to steal than it has no effect on the play right right and then that can that can lead to guys that can lead to guys being like. Oh he's not crouched. i'm going to go. I'm going to risk him. Not getting into his full crouch and play in the rule. Yeah yeah a little bit more game with gay ship. Yeah because that would decrease decrease pop times foreshore. Yeah it would and it would it would create. I don't know how much of a bigger divide between the elite catchers and the second and third tier catchers because you'd see a lot more catches trying to throw from their knees than what you see now of tons. Yeah yeah yeah you know who fall apart. Gary sanchez he'd be playing first base next week. You know luke voids playing first base off. Okay he'd be he'd be beautiful fulltime costanza. That's it so stanton he's heard anyway we all know that he's hanging out with jacoby ellsbury. Everybody knows that we don't know where they are. But that's what he's doing. There's somewhere they moved. Brett gardner garnered right field this week. Anyway okay ohio so are problems anyway is burning already spine has spring goes on new york. Oh yes yes. It doesn't go that way. New york in florida. New york is burning. Because there's a mess in. Florida has always a mess tampa right minor league baseball. Season's go to start in may so about that. What is saying so. Keep an eye out on all that out for all that stuff. If you're going to minor league games you're going to see some of it like I will your what aa right Snow single single high single. Okay so keep an eye for that. Step off road brig i will you watch me. Keep an eye out brad. You come over here and watch me every time every time brig every game like so. Did they step off. Every time they threw to first base. I want report. That's that's what that's what this conversation going to become number. I don't want it to be. I plan i so. I bought a mug club membership at the greenville drive and i will be there as near to every thursday night as i possibly can. My seat comes with free beverage. And i bought two seats for the whole season. I have two. I have two tickets to every thursday night game with a free beverage for the rest of the season. I i am excited. Okay there you go. i'll probably will go additional games. But i'm making it almost every one of those. That's the end. Okay so brad brought this to my attention. The giants and the indians played without umpires for an entire half inning. The bottom of the night. On saturday and brad tells me that one of the catcher's decided he was gonna sit behind the plate. Great yeah bo taylor with the indians and you know when i saw this just further back. Yeah i'm sure but you got it but they But they said He did a pretty good job. It makes me wonder first off wire empires not doing a better job than in second. So this is why this happened. Was that the giants had some guys who they wanted to get some reps in And the indians are yeah. That's fine you know. The giants were winning in the bottom of the ninth inning. And you know basically you're just playing an exhibition exhibition game anyway. But they're playing an extra exhibition inning and umpires or like Nope we're out. So that's why they didn't have any empires now to me k to me if you're an umpire. Would you not want to continue getting more reps and improve. I understand if you're a big league umpire but you're still coming out of your still coming in spring training everybody right. Yeah exactly see more pitches. Even the play by play guys up in the booth are getting reps in yeah. I'm sure play by play by play guy. Well this games This game is over but They're planning extra happening. Let's let's wrap it. Let's go ahead and wrap we won't we're gonna. We're gonna filibuster about sunflower seeds. Yeah i'm sure that the play by play guys win went ahead and the finished covering the game. Because it's their josh or you know ends right. I don't understand what umpires just think that. There's so much they just like. They're so high above everything and it makes me crazy. You know like us to there was a tradition where people come to baseball games to watch the empires like this is like the eighteen. Hundreds right like mark twain east umpire games. people would come to see. Mark twain umpire those games. Yeah but mark twain and unpire games anymore instead he got hernandez joe west. You know i'm not going to see those guys. I'm not going to see those guys. I don't care. If i don't know who's umpiring to game the better off it is. It's better off. I should. I should know those guys are. I should know their names. But if you saw samuel clements on the roster behind home plate would you show up. No he's got a mask on because you knew his name that there isn't no because he's got a mask on. I'm not going to see him. Whatever brad brad brad. Samuel clements is is mark twain's real name. i d. i didn't know that break. I forget that. I don't know i wouldn't go to see mark twain game. That's that's the point. I'm making even if i knew who samuel clemens was. Listen brad what ernest hemingway. Would you go see ernest hemingway. No no why are you kidding me. You're kidding women in a cigarette. You can't tell me that wouldn't be with his glorious mustache and all his literary flair. I would just to see what he wrote about it. I i would say something about how maybe he had spent. I don't even know if this is ernest. Hemingway i can't remember. I took that class longtime ago. But i would say something about how. Maybe he spent too much time out of the sea is the old man and he can't see i don't know but very good he played and they're always nice. Let's move onto. Trevor bauer eight trevor. Bauer we're gonna go from ernest hemingway. Trevor bauer bullying the literary giants in american society. Don't even know the cultural impact the to have had so far. Let's take a breather. Trevor barricades his his his wrists slapped. We have to say that. His wrist slapped by major league baseball because he decided to market himself and in a very small way on the belt of his uniform. He had a be you know for bauer was his logo. A it's like a. It's the same way that they use on bang cans but it has it has like a lightning bolt. That's right well. it's this thing right. It is unbelievable logo. It's bauer logo. Yeah yeah brand. And he gets up and major league. Baseball says no way. You violated the uniform policy. Fine you get fined brad. Weren't you tell the people what. Trevor bauer said. It's pretty great. 'cause i don't have the tweet in front of me but it was basically like. Mlb says we need to. We can't market our players. They don't wanna market themselves. Then he says player goes to mark himself. Mlb says you're not allowed to market yourself unlikely prohibited. We're going to find you if you do that. Ever again and i get on the belt. That's not a place to do that. Put it on your shoes k. But they still want to find him still defined find him if he put it on issues like if he had drawn the bauer b. on his shoe. Instead of it being like the nike bauer. One you know they would find him. But at that point i'm like who cares about wants to market himself. He's doing pretty good job at it Better than anybody else. Uh yeah when francisco. Indoor actually said that he thinks the mlb needs to ban the shifts. We we talked about that a little bit but at the end of the same article he said but rather than shifts. The focus needs to be on marketing players. Yep like he is absolutely right absolutely right and doing. This is not helping. No sometimes you gotta be right but okay. Let's play devil's advocate on in this one instance. This is ridiculous right. you're thinking holy moly rob come on man. I mean you're competing against your own value system. Here really is what he's doing So but i take. I'm taking a long view of this. If we're coming man i'm gonna say it again if we're coming up on the collective bargaining agreement and trevor bowers like. Let's push this line a little bit. And he gets guys like francisco endure pushing that line a little bit. I mean who was it Was it luke. Void or clint frazier. Somebody got him for their cleats not long ago as well and then if you go all the way back i say all the way back. We're talking like four years. What's his name on. The who's the utility infielder for the cubs in two thousand sixteen was his name. He wore the black cleats with the tongue. Sticking out and he got all hemmed up about it flip. His name escapes me right now. You're talking about. I can't think of his name But you know. I know what you're talking about and you know they have the whole players weekend thing where they're like what you can have your own shoes then but the nba through the nba in my opinion has done this right. They seem to have like no standard for shoes. The freaking shoes going to get ready anyway. What the heck do you care. I swear the damian lillard wears different shoes like different colored shoes like every other game almost because they're different colors from his line. I think he wore a buzz light. Your theme to shoe one time last year like in the bubble yeah amazing that glowing green purple and white. And it's like the blazer black red and white had nothing to do with any of the colors but mba was like do it do it. People like the shoes and you know what kids are going to like baseball shoes to if they if they start to see him and start to see these creative colors designs and major league baseball needs to let them run with it. I agree you know. 'cause there's argument i would also make the same argument for bats. Yes bats. there's a ton of really cool bats out. There is a bunch of boutique bat companies out. There that are doing some crazy things. I will tell you that. Bat s- is my favorite one. I hope they're listening. Because i'll tell you. They are my very very favorite boot tiki back company. If you want a great beautiful wood bat go to job ads. i'm telling you man and stuff. They do is astonishingly cool. Yeah and this is the thing too. Is that like you've got to let these guys be created because it will. It will sell merchandise. It will push merchandise because for sure. You could replicate a metal bat to look like a pro model of it would bet if somebody has allowed that and there is a a replica medal version at dick's or whatever i'm like. Yeah i want that one. That's awesome you know. And it's the same thing with shoes like he. I want that model shoe. It's amazing and i understand what the gloves. Because you've got draw with pitchers right. You can't have a with the loud glove. And so then he just make a sweeping declaration across league. Nobody can have lower gloves. I'm fine that but let them go shoes. Yes let him go bats. What i'm saying. Yeah that's exactly. What i'm saying if you had so i can see Spring training bats with the miami vice color scheme again. I'm going to not on job ads. would they have they have a bat. That's this miami vice thing and it's this it's this pink on top of the barrel is in this pastel pink and the bottom is in a tiffany blue and it is beautiful odds if you tell you take that down to florida for spring training man maybe so maybe they only open up cool bats for spring training players weakened and the all star break that would live with that yeah and see middle ground. Same thing was shoes. And you know what we're gonna make the all star game you know while we're at it. We should have nike. Should make a non spike version of those shoes. Two of the of the spikes absolutely like some kind of version of like a street shoe or like a basketball shoe version. I don't know there are a lot of other. There are a lot of cleats that i think are really cool. And i'm like well plane anymore. So i have no desire like have no interest but i bite as she right. You know right. Just the sneaker. Yeah so i agree. The i know we're just trying to manage world. I think i think so getting so. Let's go through our checklist. Rob manfred needs to be Canned bats shoe ban the shift. Universal d. h. Should never be in the conversation again. What else do we feel passionately about. Let's talk about baseball's for a minute. Yes let's talk about. So like i said. I went to a baseball game today. It was really cool. Experience and took my son wilson The spring training experience overall was not that different than like the game wasn't two different We had our little pod in the outfield. They like spray painted a box. That we sat in And they said if you're in your pod you don't need to wear a mask which is really cool. I thought that was really nice. Because i don't. I don't love wearing a mask. But i don't have a problem with it but if i don't have to then i'm not going to so able the game same way with without a mask and it was really nice The one of the concession guys. We got their super early. and we. we're getting our lunch and one of the guys goes you guys have a ball and i was like not yet but we're sitting out in home. Run territory so we'll see what happens. He looks he looks wilson ghost you want one. He's like yeah. He goes in the back and grabs a ball from batting practice today. Wall so we came home with a baseball. It was pretty awesome. And we'll see nice. That's awesome yeah. We got to toss it around. A little. bit is tossing him Just like he's still learning how to catch tossing me like five feet away and he thought it was pretty fun to catch and then dive on the ground. But but the baseball here. In a minute. But i did notice a couple of things first off. Wear sunscreen it was a little bit of cloud cover. We left like how will be fine. And then i forgot to put them on but tip if you forget sunscreen at least at the peoria sports complex out in centerfield. The bathroom has sons like a sunscreen dispenser in it. Well as little late getting there as you can see on youtube but It is there it is there for you so that was awesome. It was really cool. Amazing and something else that i thought of today. It should be illegal if you shut down your Your water fountains in the name of covid to sell water bottles for five bucks a pop all for sure. 'cause i was like oh my gosh we could have easily dropped like forty bucks on water because it was hot sitting out the sun you know. And and it's unlikely he'll fill up the water fountain because that wasn't working. I'm not going to fill them up the nasty bathroom because that's gross But yeah they're still charging five bucks. A pop for water like water should be free in my opinion. If if you're turning off your water fountains charge what you want for soda and beer out. Water should be free or at least a dollar because that was ridiculous. But that's seeing. Yeah so let me get back. This baseball rookie talked last week. About dead dead baseball's Was it blake's now. He noticed that the the delays are higher. Yeah yeah digs fingers in yup definitely. I don't have any fingernails right now. But i can dig what i do have like just because i trimmed them but the little bit that i do have i can dig that into the lace there because they are definitely higher. The ball is softer. I feel like. I can squish it more than i've ever been able to with another baseball other than those permit. Pearls you play with in little league Sure yeah and it is soft enough that you can see the point of on the ball for those of you watching on youtube and as you can see it there you holding it up right now. I'm holding it up. I don't know if you can get close in a nice. Get close knit to see if it's too bright but you can definitely see the smudge. Maybe what i'll do is. I'll put that picture saying i'll put that up and you can see it But there is a noticeable dent in this ball because of it. And i think it's because it didn't. I'm a little bit. But it's not something i've ever seen before well and you and i were talking about how the balls from the late eighties and early nineties. Had the raised seems And how we prefer those. I've always preferred them playing catch just throwing it around with with a significantly more pronounced grip. Yeah yeah and and you know. I noticed in high school. There were times where we get hardly any lace at all and they're rather tends to get into the really high raised up and i'm like yes. Nobody steel on me today. You know because he can and you can really huck that thing. I feel like it's more like those. It's more like those. You can really feel it. And i was actually. I've never in my life. Being able to throw curveball. But today i was popping the ball of myself and for the first time i've found that dot is able to get the little dr able to get enough little snap on the only to myself so i was like stephanie. Going to be some nasty curve balls. I think that's why. We've seen a lot of those frisbee Frisbee curve balls on instagram lately. So that's right. Yep we'll something new to watch out for. That's really exciting. I will baseball family Stay tuned for the next segment of the podcast where we talk to our friend bill and we'll be right back.

I guess we're kind of going down a little bit grab hold here but what for anybody who is doing is practicing martial arts or any sport really what some advice you have farm and just have fun with it if you're not having fun with it. There's no point really isn't like you know the you know tonight. I'll be better than anybody else not out. You go into a tournament having a win like i've spent Up until it was like four years ago. i'd never actually fought full-contact. It's contact but no head contact and everything and it.

That's what i do. I box and i box out of a moi tijam actually so i'm always there with the dudes throwing their legs in the air which i used to. I used to practice judo. Actually nj jitsu do all three but You know judo was my favorite. I'm judo do appreciate judo. The most out of those segments of the discipline love judo jujitsu sites funds especially don't be involved in smaller than everybody saying i go flying spits. It's a lot more. Just pick somebody up ten times bigger than you enthrall amazing so okay. How did you get into baseball. Tell us where you're baseball. Fandom began if you spend all your time in on the mats. My dad was a big red sox. Fan and detroit tigers. Actually they used to have an old Transistor radio Figured out how to rig up to the telephone pole And they'd be able to pick up the tigers games back in the back in the sixties and like that so Watching watching games with him. I wasn't really too big into when i was getting. You know what i mean. I didn't really follow it. I remember in two thousand four. When red sox won the world series. I did quite grasp that it was the on such a massive thing. They actually won. You know that there are people who gone there. Tire lives never seen it but yet it's kind of started and then followed it on and off in high school. I started really following baseball again. Twenty twelve who's obviously terrible year and i said Next year. I wanna sit down and watch wanna watch the games Really get into sit you know and watch it and twenty. Thirteen just happened to work out. That was that was there. That was their their goodyear and then it went back back to the toilet toothpaste. And then they traded mookie betts and now it's not even know. Orange uses mouthwash and toothpaste now Just i understand why they did it. Obviously i'm disgusted by it. But like i i get points very easy to spend somebody else's money setting setting what doesn't make me feel any better. Seen him when the world series in dot for that was that was painful. You feel like the red sox are doing a pretty good job rebuilding the team right now. I mean last year was obviously not a good year but as a fan. Do you like the moves. They're making right now. Yes and no i understand. They're trying to do it on a budget. They're trying to get away with from the know from the excessive over the salary packs. Spending i get I think like. I just got a notification twenty minutes ago there in a three way. Trade talks with with the mets and the twins with benintendi involve I mean they're going to stay on budget and need to. They need to trade for for pieces. They can't just spend money and expect to produce. If it's going to be a rebuild. I get it but obviously i'm not happy with you know what i mean. Yeah cnn skeleton of a team going on the field like that. But there's guys. I do a lot better. But you think they'll keep jackie bradley. Jr. i know i would. I would trade. I would trade his his club for or wouldn't trade his glove for anything. You know what i mean. you know. He's had a pretty good season batting average last year. But i mean it hitting one ninety seven or to twelve or like that you can't you can't get in centerfield. It's inter- anywhere the outfield. We can't get rid of that. Yeah so my biggest question is in i. I need you to really speak on behalf of the entire red sox nation here are you. Are you guys as upset as the rest of us about diverse cheeks. Does it offend you to like with the water gum and like he looks like a cabbage patch. Kid with the black. You even even adding without the watergate chewing doubles. They did you. I think i i was i was wondering what your thoughts on when you order dazzling every time he comes on tv. I can't. I can't do a briggs and beating drums day one literally day. One of this podcast. Just he's like. Oh and by the way davis cheeks man. Yeah day one. The fans like what is happening here is is it just. It's not just me. it's never just me. He's doing really well. Though player there was a point. I think it was. I think it was John farrell or somebody Was him where he was bribing with money every time he gets a hit or maybe it was again like ten bucks or something if you get the twentieth year is strike hours almost like a stock market right here sell their like you. Give your kid a quarter. Every time he does go to the game or something and take him out afterwards. Yeah that's my sister. Used to pay her kids for goals and soccer because they just weren't aggressive enough. No one's to started doing that plan. I don't feel like you should have to do with professional baseball player. Though you don't think a deal no big deal on my good so not a lot of instant ramen last season that i kind of last season really do before i was just kinda kinda felt like a loss for me. I i kinda focused on hockey morris the other sport i really like i don't know i think it was just because so up down with everything or no reason it season. They could make up their mind. Geyser guys are taking season often like that. It didn't really didn't really feel like a baseball season. Yeah major league. Baseball really didn't do a good job. Like prepping preparing everybody for the season and like the kind of market it. But it was like okay here. We go tomorrow. We're going to start every well you know. It didn't feel the anticipation as part of. What's fun about it. And if there's anticipation it's it's going to fall flat. I agree with you. I enjoyed it because the mayors are playing meaningful baseball longer than they have in years. But but yeah. I could see why why people with like it. Wouldn't it wouldn't really do for you. I'll tell you what i did. Follow was trevor bowers blog on momentum or vlog melinda that was fantastic. I couldn't really. I couldn't really stand him up until he started doing. The dog and i actually watched and listened away. The waves thinking what's going on said okay. I get him out. He's really though he's a guy who youtube has done more positive. Pr and his. Obviously his marketing team. His agent had done more positive. Pr for him in the last two years then he could have done leading like the first like five years of his career. Whatever it was because they've done a tremendous job turning around his image because he had this attitude. This image of being a diva. You know yeah absolutely. I mean i'm included. 'cause i i wasn't huge fan of him and tell you really watched his stuff and and then i was like oh him throwing the ball over the centerfield fence. That's just like a flex. I get it now. That's eight. yep that's exactly. That's exactly what i said. I remember a woman can. What a shirt point of. You're a grown adult heavier hissy fit or nobody can see but then when you watch him talk okay i get it now. All right okay. Yes we actually. We had to change our official position like our entire messaging here on. The podcast changed dramatically. We almost had to recant. Some of our previous statements like so. That's it was a huge deal for us. Yeah it was so. I'm really quick. You're an emt correct if you get into that. Don't tell me you got certified like i know. You gotta get certified. That was. that was the worst part. I am a terrible test taker in terrible student. I'm gonna keep that certification till the day i can't i can't do the testing more but I did Graphic design in high school college got a degree for it and just got up at the longtime The market's oversaturated with people websites where you do it for free from home. You know stuff like that happened My dad was police officer in. My hometown is considering when i come on up to something else. Do something a little bit more fulfilling. Something i feel like at the end of the day. I can go. Even if i didn't make a difference is still did still did something worthwhile. That's terrific yeah that's awesome. I feel similarly. I left my fancy job for something more meaningful as well someone something you know at the end of the day you feel better about it. It's worth a even if you're miserable the entire time when i wasn't so bad. Yeah yeah i got. I gotta tell you but i got like tremendous respect for anybody. Who does the hands on side of like healthcare and medical care and things like that because at one point i wanted to be a physical therapist and then i realized how much you have to touch somebody and i was like not for that and then i also had to go through like my first aid certification and i was getting queasy during like the like the fake stuff. Like teachers like okay. This person has a snapped femur. And i was like you. Don't actually they at the other day. This poor person we go to a in the parking lot on ice and we were just kind of like okay. No big deal not a problem. Go to pick her up off the ground end her. She had a knee in the middle of famer. We say it's just yet just bent. Oh that was one of the times stood there just kind of look at again. I can't really repeat what i was saying in my head. It's not bad but it's fun though like you said you get greasy and you know one of the kids at sick one night. Didn't quite make the bathroom through up. And i'm standing there like dry even cleaning up and i went. Wait a minute what am i is wrong with a couple of days later i'm sitting in the english started throwing typing with one hand a handbag with the other one like there's something about going into clinical mode you know and i was switch. Somebody's gonna get sick sick. I let me put my hand. Let me change my shirt real quick on dumping right. Yeah so let's get into what brought us here today. For the last the last few minutes we have left we are all holdings are can. That's good that's good. We're holding a can of moxie and they're very specific reason. We all have one. And i'm going to let bill tell his family on the show why. This is significant. A couple of reasons. I tried it because i saw that. Ted williams poster. Like i gotta try this if this is still thing i've had so many people my family don't tell me it's the worst thing i've ever pace in this. Will i gotta try it again for the first time an abrupt you guys you talked about using really interested breaks No offense bradtha wasn't there was no real snob but now of course we had the joke about your blasphemous. Comments about babe being overrated. Yeah as you go. He's overly romanticized. Now you said okay. That's the first time no it's not. It's not what i said. I couldn't we. We decided you didn't deserve any mock that day because you couldn't handle it can handle the truth brad. So then you renegotiated and we're like okay. Filled decided to the goodness of his heart to ship. You a box of moxie. Thank you bill. I appreciate it absolutely well. I appreciate you changing your mind. Brad sodas bill right. Bill yes absolutely. Let's pop top and we're gonna toast france paradigm shift and he saw the light and we're very excited. Oh man i poured the own nice mug belies. All of you cheers brad. That's pretty good. It's just. I hated the first time i tried. I absolutely hated it. But it's kind of like the first time you drink. Black coffee is good. You think games for yourself a black coffee to try or just the worst thing ever add anybody ever drink batting like kind of like the way it hung out of my mouth a little bit and you go back to it for the rest of. Yeah yeah speaking which we plug raise really quick. Let's do it says yummy face. Still brad's the yummy phase. This this moxie does it's kind of straddle in the yummy phase and like adult flavor profiles. it's this weird mix of sugar sweet goodness and like this anise flavor. That is really bold. I dunno. I i dig it. I think it's a little unique raila a little bit of aspirin. Yes like i said. I saw the poster with ted williams. Still thing they still sell it. Now get now. I gotta try it. I mean if he's endorsing it's gotta be good. I'd never even heard of it until you brought it up to us and And i had a show up on my doorstep today and it was like. Oh my gosh water out. Longer than i expected. Wake up go on amazon. Do something completely sidetrack yup goes. So does anybody know when ted williams died. Don't do what i did. I had to google fair enough but It's been like was like two thousand and three hundred from it was right before the oh forward series night. Two thousand two to three ingo. Yeah that means regardless of when he did the ad that ted williams is officially still selling moxie was twenty years later years after he died. I was gonna say well. Ten years ago. No that was a long time ago. We were in high school twenty years ago. I was eight. Sorry oh bill. Shoot where i feel terrible not skin. Gosh all right baseball family.

"What you need to know is brought to you by marie. Morongo casino resort and spa. Good times ninety minutes wherever you from wherever you are.

Oh bob euchre major league situation. Yeah listen got the pain was real. So i get it for years old so he can think that's not fun. At least it's not greg taking the there you go. There's that too laura. i'm happy. Bright data gabriel fluffy iglesias but is a little bit of bad news. Okay yeah so. Gabriel had to cancel the rest of his texas. Here comes fluffy tour due to testing positive coronavirus even though he is vaccinated rich eisen. Same thing happened to him today. You know some leg. Dang man listen man. It's why i know that the mass mandates are gonna be back it looks like indoors even if you're vaccinated These are the reasons this this. This delta variant is you know. I don't wanna go to. We're not going to get into but but the whole point is is still thing. Okay gives an opportunity to talk about the olympic basketball team as well the men and by the way baseball tonight the yankees red sox game was zach lowe and because of a to be vigilant. Y'all yeah vigilante and get better. Both rich eisen as well as fluffy i really think. He's hilarious. yes which is in. He's very hilarious. You mean fluffy to yes. Fluffy is excellent. Yes i mean. Riches larry is to your riches hillary's so that's why we loved the we do miss. We do wish both good health right. That is what you need to know. Brought you by morongo casino resort spa good times less than ninety minutes fluffy being self quarantine right now. That is that presumably. I saw him talking on the camera. Shoot man we should call them in which maybe birthday. Okay sounded better. You greg on the number i mean obviously i have that in my phone right here. Hold on avi eight one eight nine. You're gonna read it on the air to in space jam. No i don't. I don't believe he's in space. I went to his his website. Because i was trying to figure how to get his number and as a big at here for speech town. Oh is it so. Let me ask you this. Where does space jam to fall in the things. That are important okay. We know stocks. Okay since i was nine for the free throw line right now. She just like i was. I was a young person when space jam came out but certainly not a child. Like i never saw that movie in the theaters. Because i was just old enough to be like space. Jam kidding me but the soundtrack to space jam extremely important in my life for a lot of different levels. Obviously you know. I believe i can. Fly is on there. But there's a couple of shots tracks that aren't fly no more with him. Yeah exactly. that's we dismiss that. But what i'm saying is that there's a couple of the tracks there to me. Space jam soundtrack is more economic than the movie. That's just from my specific generation. Is this a movie siege. Or do you take the kids to want to see it. We'll probably watch it here at home. Was i honestly. I don't care to the movies but But we'll watch on. Hbo max or wherever it's on but my oldest wants to see it. Yeah yeah okay. L. z am. I going to go to the theaters. Is this something that you care about on any level. Yeah i care about it like it's not like you know it's not like in the heights. I need to see this mathie opening weekend. It's more like oh you streaming right now. What you did with this terrible right for us by the way fluffy did tweet out that he wasn't space. Jam says i'm the voices speedy gonzales in the new space. Jam does this mean. They're going to try to cancel fluffy to you. Can't catch me cancel culture on the fastest mouse in all of me. He go okay. Laura just told me that she doesn't want to see it because it's lebron movie of course just which just out of control to me. We're trying to go into the weekend strong. It's your birthday and your out here. Hayden goddamn ugly out more now. That thing that. I'm not hating god. What else could it be. Y- what are we talking sidetracked on this. I just wanted to bring up the fact that i'm very disappointed that the space jam soundtrack is apparently very underwhelming. Okay the tizzy of two soundtrack. Pardon me correct the original. We know who's on. I don't even know who's on there. I'll send you a story about it. That's a scathing review. And i love a good save eighties. Wow love grits game soundtrack. Who again was laura writing meds review. No but i'm trying to tell you the soundtrack was important. That's what i'm saying. This is worth addressing. I can bring it up right now if you ll is it. Or how many. How many did you have a soundtrack. Many little well. Let's just say that the dude who wrote it tweeted it with a cuss word. So that's he was upset about the look. I can't wait. I need to see. It's it's alfonse. I'll funds pierre from pitchfork. Okay now before we we find that you brought up you know about the dodgers and we were discussing how they handle it and you said do they handle it with hey clayton kershaw windows closing so we're going to go and try to get someone that can fit that particular mold or they going to do business as usual. We're going to get a guy that we can plug in that might fit into our future plans etcetera etcetera etcetera or. Play more coy right. Like i think it's the latter. I think you know. Andrew freedman has made certain moves with certain things in mind with some urgency to it. But i think overall coming off a championship while i think it's important for them to try to win again because those windows don't last as long as we normally think i think. The dodgers long-term window in theory is larger. And i feel. He is a long term thinker. Not to say. He doesn't address the short term but generally speaking. I feel like he thinks. I want to have an atlanta braves. Type run with more championships is the way i think he thinks of it absolutely But you know the thing that i am. Just sort of curious about is because in a lot of ways you know trevor. Bauer was supposed to have been both short term and long correct signing and so there. You can't go out during the i don't think you can anyway go out during the ready for the trade deadline and address both concerns with one trade. The way we didn't he off season with one citing. So that means you have to choose which aspect of the season or this move is more important to you the short term and a long time. Because i don't know if there's a person who fits both that's available to us right now. So that's the reason. I was asking a question is i was. The driver is it. Let's show up arms today to try to win today because we can't worry about tomorrow or is it still about tomorrow because we think we're still good today. I think you don't worry about tomorrow as much. Because there's there's there's multiple. Tomorrow's you know what i'm saying like and so for me like okay you've got. That's the whole point of having the depth that you have it have had as a franchise for the past three to four seasons question is who would you give up from actors or like specifically on this roster i would you know i'd be open to conversations about gavin depending on on the talent okay I mean talent is max. Coups can work. I can't i mean you can't trade coups just because the dodgers are going to be part owners of should be carried the one can we okay. So coups okay. So gavin locks coups kevin coups and then like a couple of parking spaces and the dodger stadium parking lot which are very valuable. Okay so this is this. Is the greg berman school of front office where you don't you don't really ever give up anything. You only gain stuff and everything. Possible is available coups. I gave you young talent. And i gave you real estate. We're washington nationals. Who are owned by real estate. Magnate are not gonna fall for that. But i'm saying that's and that's that's where if the washington nationals don't think real estate in la is worthy then they don't understand real estate but george. That's a real question which is not just the george. I was like okay. I'll see we're doing whatever point is that like he's got kirk franklin asandra. You've got your dog you. The president assad asandra. Sorry thank you anyway. Trade element is probably. What's going to determine whether or not you go short term or without tomorrow you know what i mean like who you can get. And who is that person who you think. It's gonna take more than one player to get max scherzer in that scenario right who is probably gonna take two players who start right with some regularity. Who do you think players be. Andrew andrew freeman does not love trading. Know exactly that's what i'm saying. Right what are they also have a gigantic stable of prospects. That has gone down recently. Because of because of get rid of i would get rid of gavin lux. That's not going to do it all by itself. But then you're gonna have to go into the miners and head start talking about guys bush talking one one big leaguer. One that's gonna ask you. How many how many big leaguers ready to go so it's gonna take two big leagues. Who big leaguers big leaguers. I think it's gonna take to regular starters. It takes two to make a thing. Go right do not. But you're not you're so you're not talking about even guy in the bullpen. You're talking about everyday started talking again. I taylor a bullpen guy. Fine but i'm saying like who do you actually think it's going to be because you can't just proverbially talk about the trade deadline talking about the guys that are going to go. I willing to move. You know depending on the arm depending on the arm. I'll be willing to move me now. We return. i don't know about that. I mean had no way. Touchable is untouchable and a story. But what does he done filthy. But that is away understand all that. But gavin is filthy too. But you guys. He's got a little dirt on him. He's not filthy gavin. Yeah so. I'll tell you this though. If you're getting max scherzer then. Tony gosselin goes on. You're getting max scherzer. Tony gone then goes onto the table. Because he's the guy that's taken over that fifth starter spot right now and if you bring insurer then you can. You're okay with moving out. And he is pitching very very well recently. If you do like a young guys with gavin locks and tony gonzalez. You're looking at two good young players that are going to pitch for you every pitch for every five days every day could probably use catch. I mean oh okay all right well anna prospect prospect. We've been making a move. Because i'm not moving for someone who's not like a made man you made man. He started in the all star game. But i'm saying if we're not gonna trade away looks and gosnell who get max scherzer. Then what are we doing but you have other pitching prospects you can trade away right like desire gray if you're if it's something like star you're getting back right. What's the kid very. Be very very very tight window star with max scherzer these like what thirty seven but again he started in the all star game. I understand he's that good. He's not gonna listen. I'm from detroit. I know how good is may. I'm still crying crocodile tears. We couldn't figure out a way to make it work with him ten years ago. I get that he's really good. But i also understand. He's really owed for sports. Also give if we give new way our children and we're getting back a guy who's going to be good for another two seasons. I don't think that's equitable. You don't if you get a ring out of it. See that's why. I don't move just gray like you were talking about. Gray is going to be the next the next walker bueller the next. Julio we're not gonna move. He's not the best pitching prospect. They have the is no what. What is it bobby. Miller the best pitching prospect path. I mean he's okay but it's it's peppy. It's the gray. Is the guy that the most people are excited. Yes i agree. You do not want to move that guy. I think you got a regular name and it don't sound like you know what his fault next time. It can la body or something like that this guy this time with exactly that. Who's trading for me right now. Anyway you know exactly like what do you mean who's trading for. Who wouldn't want only coming off. Tommy john is not like people. Don't come back better. I against starfish and coffee. I love you. But he's not broken because he got tommy john. But i'm saying that even right now but my look my point. Is that this discussion around. The dodgers in the trade deadline has to come with some costs and dodgers fan. Just caution yourselves as to. It's not just about who you want. It's about who has to go. You know what i mean. And that's that's the hardest part of the decision often times when it comes to these trade deadline coming up karakouz mma. Yeah we're speaking of basketball. Let's get into the nba finals. Little bit and how all of a sudden legacies are. They've always been on the line but they are looking a little different after four games right. Now let's get some of that on the other side. Happy birthday laura. Is this the song you get down to tonight. I could be one though. I don't know so little oldie but a goody just like the term old are you going to. Are you going to go tonight. I think earlier in the show. As we're not gonna go to acapulco janice is taking me to a lot which is also in down so you never know you right there. I was trying to write in downey. That's where i thought. The taxicab didn't happen cheaper. But that was all happening. The same discussion but by the way quick uber ride will get you out kapoor from there. No no no. No no no at best for east coast. She goes lift on the a live quickly. Remind new orleans. Well shots downey yet to make. What are we doing a remote and down every single time. We talk about this. Greg make you happy. I'm sure we got one coming up soon. We're there a lot. You're there no. Yeah this station is there allows your life to down. You'd be honest in my life. Yes and you've lived your argument since i it's fine. Only time has only been a few times and the station has been there. would you include with the stakes. Just she must definitely in play right. It's been with the station. I mean never been yeah. I live far from there. I drive from hawaii. But i lived there. I didn't go there just like hang out. Go down at least once a month man. i don't leave. My little bubble. I live in value is right there. I gotta drive forty minutes to get it down. But i go like once a month but that's nba term. No no they don't like it. They don't like the bubble they're afraid of it. They need to now re dropping like flies in vegas man. I got the club's you can't make it out of vegas. I'd see what happens if they can't get a team. No i mean that's entirely within play completely within play. You know thoroughly totally just because they say they were vaccinated. Doesn't mean that they were out there. Where masking going to strip clubs so was make a mysterious man. It's wild this jury is gonna wind goat. Anyway yeah i mean we we get into a whole discussion about and actually george. You know what. I want to know your thoughts on this because this is something i was discussing the other day when they had lost two straight games the usa. Men's team which is this like we all know that in the thirty years since the dream team has happened that the world has gotten better and we sort of talked about this on around the horn. The we did yes. Yeah but he's aaron spain. And i got very feisty very feisty about it and that was specifically about popovich. But my question to you george this what do we think. The actual goals of usa men's basketball should be. Do you think it should be a place for us. To bring our best. And show the dominance as best we can or do you think it should be used as something of an inbetween devote detrimental tool for sort of the young stars of the nba. Because if that's the case the latter. I think that some of these american exceptionalism above a basketball needs to go in terms of world tournaments. And that's good for the game overall. You know what i'm saying. Yeah i feel you and clinton i think that initially okay. I think this is changed over time. And i think it continually changes over time. Okay so i think initially clearly was. We're going to showcase our best. That i've ever played to the world right barkley and jordan and all those guys malone bird cetera magic yada yada yada and to your point win by eighty points pronouncing every damn game ninety six. It was still at ninety. Six was a different team. Was shocking alonzo mourning in those guys and whatever and then you know two thousand was a team and we're still way better than everybody vince. Carter yemen it on what to do the right. What was his name frederick. Advertisers so frederick. I've i've been stripped from the black power and two thousand four km clinton k. Two thousand four. They made the shift for the most part. Not to say. There weren't veteran guys on that roster like tim duncan alan iverson. Stefan marberry etcetera. But they made that shift because remember year. That was year two of anthony. Lebron james dwayne wade in that particular group okay. And that's when things really started to shift right because they they bronze they lost a sophocles. Shorts tonight is with greece that because sophocles shorts at night is was called. The greek baby shack. He's so so they lost that one and then it's like oh we can't do that no more. We can't be trying nothing with young guys anymore. We you know we were cool when it was just one guy like kristen leitner but now we need. We need to bring back the pros. So obviously the redeem team had lebron. Wade bosch milo kobe. Jason kidd right like all these guys ep. Three and they were back to being the top of the top. Let's go now. That team also had. I believe more than one year of continuity right like they had committed to a certain amount of time they were gonna play together in the off. Offseason was at least. I want to say at least two offseasons before they got to beijing. And then you know. After that i feel like they have tried to balance what you just said. But that's my issue is that there's no real like we're the reason that the balanced kind of worked is because of the way. The competition worked. Globally that is out the table now because it doesn't put you in a competitive advantage on either side. Correct him saying that's okay with me. As a fan of basketball i listen. I'm from a basketball town. You know what i'm saying. I don't have any emotional connectivity to whether or not the us men's basketball team wins loses. I don't know anybody that gatherers with their crew to watch that team play. And so if that's the case i wonder why we're still doing it this way at all l. c. You know what i'm saying if it's good except it. Yeah they want at this point. I feel like the the change us talking about the right now versus the next day situation for the dodgers l. z. I feel like this tournament or this is the year where we need to realize. This isn't doing anybody any good to just roll out a bunch of guys that are tired from the playoffs and try to win international tournament. it doesn't even make sense but it's also a reflection if you will just where the olympics are a period in terms of importance. Yeah you know. And i think that is really the heart of the conversation. It isn't young versus os dream team one or two or three. It's do you care about it. But i think more and more we're fighting just generally speaking people are carrying less and less. Yes it's no longer like a not a dream team member. We're not calling them drinking anyone. Now we're just saying you're on the men's bathroom national sexy name. Listen l. c.'s. Point steph curry has never played on one of these teams right. But what do you think. In the best case scenario. She'd be like even if nobody cares about the olympics. It's not like you're going to shut down the program. You know what i'm saying and what you do with. The program to me is endlessly fascinating. I would have it on like a sort of an olympic soccer level. You have like a you twenty four kind of situation and maybe two or three veterans. But that's it that to me would seem to make sense liberty on the you just as we did today. He tweeted like a sad face emoji with an american flag and the clip from isaiah from the whole those i mean that by the way quoted him laughing. That's a good. But i i think that's what should be younger guys who want some hunger or they'd still needs to develop parts of their game that the international game would help them with. I don't get what we're doing right now. And they need to figure it out because it's only going to get worse from here right because the generation that a bowing out the lebron james say i'm good. They're the last little connector to those dream team moment correct and going forward this classes coming out right now. That's going to be drafted. What was their connection to any of this. It's not existent right. So it's like they need to figure out your point clinton. What is the goal if the goal is to win gold medals and basketball than culturally. We need to make it important again. Yeah that's not. He's a basketball thing. Term commitment right. Yeah i just i just feel that i think is someplace down the line where you think does. Usa basketball try to serve the greater good of basketball basketball. Try to serve the nba or basketball trying to serve the guys who want to play usa basketball. Do they need to symposium with the women players and that's on. Why do they still care. Why does diana taurasi trying to comeback from to make the up to play one more time in the olympics. She's got nineteen medals and all the accolades already. They need to find out why the women who are made women in their sport. Why do they still care so much. Why do you care so much. Still sue bird if you can figure that out then you take that information and then apply to the men's side because simply saying you get to be a dream team member doesn't exist anymore all right coming up next. Would you rather. We're back in two minutes. Forty five seconds. That always makes me laugh. I'll take it away chris. All right george. We're gonna start off with you today. Would you rather be able to shrink down to the size of an aunt or grow to the size of a skyscraper. Disney easier for me. It's real easy for me. I'm going to be the end. I feel like first of all answers. Superstrong for is and you know. Move around do some things. I mean you a skyscraper. You ain't going nowhere you know you stuck. So that's just my thinking man or day man day what he goes. You guys don't have enough confidence in the big man. Okay finding big and just eliminate my problems. You know what i'm saying. Oh that jurisdiction over there. See you later. I'm gonna put my finger on you know. That's not what i would use power sport but yeah you get help people. You could take them places. People probably think help people as as an no i. Don't in fact wins is an aunt. Helped you do anything. The keep the right fertilize because pre yes. I don't how can you explain to me. How a building helping anybody you grow to the size of as of a building. Does that mean you grow to to be building it. You are as tall as a building. That's that makes it really easy for you to get pop. Popped okay well over their pop. I'm sure if i was the size of a building with this tremendous physique that already carry around the earth every day. I'd be a little what it'll be easier to take bullets asking colin how that worked out for him. I i gotta be shut down every single. All right i mean yeah. I mean godzilla godzilla. He's size of rodin. Mahthir what's greg clinton. Yes would you rather wear a constantly changing outfit or a constantly. Changing hairstyle definitely outfit as i already wear constantly changing outfit. I'm the most change closing in his person. Probably that i know. I will routinely bring two to three. Looks just random. Place that i go i know i got to be there for more than four hours just because i get upset and i don't like the way my situation is looking. I do that every day without even being. Thank you l z. Gimme the committee to pick them. Though constantly changed yeah yeah. Yeah i agree wholeheartedly. I mean i don't think this is a debate. A move changing hairston and that's good lord. Yeah for sure right all right. I think you're gonna. I think we're gonna go on this one z. But would you rather have to always wear heavy boots or have to never be able to wear shoes. Always heavy boots. Never right give me the boots really. Figured that's your you won't be timberland up. Oh you just want to be walking through the airports with no shoes. I'd like to believe that. If i was forced to be in a situation with no shoes at all times that i had made it and figured it out in paradise i wasn't going to be putting myself at risk. You know because we have someone who clean planes come on the air. We didn't never shampoo. The carpets plane did know that. I know a couple of people until recently too. Yeah that's just nasty man again. If i had to be barefoot all the time i would. I'd be restricted to boat. I built. you can't even go in. Have you not seen no shoes. No shirts no service science buildings and stuff. You can't even go to whole foods dog what you gonna do delivery baby. Twenty twenty one. Come on all right delivery man how you going to go out there and get them air foot writing this next greg nasty toenails. I just imagine what they look like. Now i would imagine what my tokyo law. He's got to get a petty every week every day. He nasty nasty. You line donna. Would you rather listen to an annoying laugh. For a whole day or get tickled for one hour so based rather hosted show. I agree set this up. I rather be tickled for a whole hour. Listen i mean fails e question here. Who's doing the take. Come on bro. You know that that makes all the difference. I mean listen portman. we're all in. Wow that was never mind. I mean that was going. To say an unforced error but that was a window into the soul man. He's been preaching. I'm just saying that every time they might be new listeners. You never know she might be as old as one day. He'll be like maude next all right so these are the guys that come on. You know me. I'm a pick the hardest guy confront and you can tell me as long as you want right. Yeah the tickling is wrong to return to the is appropriate as long as choose. The person who's doing tickling doing didn't see this movie to a three fetish talking my feet a little bit too much shoes ever. I like my feet to be free. You know i'd like to be healthy. There we go hang on better environments. You know what i'm saying. Aren't you in venice. Why are we talking about my god. They're off clinton rather have a pet tiger or a pet lion. Easily a tiger king me. Have you seen tiger. King have you by the way the reason why i would rather have a target online because lines are lazy. Those you know that lines don't do a whole lot. They be chilling okay. They're taking naps all day. And that's basically what they do. Tires are a little bit more active. So if i'm in a a pet situation which. I would never be in definitely tiger for sure you like safari knowledge derek greg. I did now z. Man gimme the lion in the line. The main the main. I went to big main assault lines at the zoo in omaha omaha sidebar. Top five zero in america. He does not think that. I'd never would have guessed that either. I know it's it's weird fun fact about one hundred now. I will go with the tigers. I feel like. I've seen more people handle tigers than lions. So i'm just gonna go based on that. What's next great all right. L z. Would you rather lose the ability to cry or cry every day for twenty minutes randomly. Ooh easy for me. Jimmy yes yeah good. Cry is good for you. Yeah i see a commercial a day. Do for real i seriously and me the whole waterworks. But like the you know. I've been crying. Ever since. Calvin got a job to pump fake. Where it's like. I could cry right now. You know what. I'm saying that you break the plane if you will. You know that happens to be at least once a day for short. Yeah man i'm a robot. I have not cried and easily ten years. Why you haven't cried and ten ten years. Well this is where we get all the suppression try. This explains a lot. These shows earlier. You would never put those hats in the wall. Exactly to quote the great. Jim valvano man. Like you know what i'm saying right. There are three things we should do every day. Number one is laugh number to think and spend some time in thought obviously for three. You should have your emotions move you to tears. It isn't a gentleman human emotion that you have purposely. It's like ten years. I've always purposely you holding back man you holding them back man. You have permission. I know what's coming. I'm stunned you didn't cry. The first met you which was when she's a data. Do because the dodgers thematic the first day now is the first day second day for the first time in intern. Clinton though i'll give you this is the first time the first sign of aging. I believe which is not even physical. It's emotional it's you start crying commercials. Yeah well i mean. I've been doing that. Good job man. You know what commercial. Got me the one that i never forget it man there was. I think it was a budweiser commercial. Where the dude left home doll that the window and the dog was sad because the day had gone by the dude at pulled it all night or and he was so happy to see a and i thought man this dude died drinking and it was it was great and i up even thinking about just goosebumps and like all of those like like i follow muscle relaxer reasonable a reasonable relaxers. Ain't giving you goosebumps bro. That's for sure. I like you look at things online. Like soft precious tender moments. I'll get the quick quick cries on that. It's like i actually so the latest episode of my podcast. Abc dropped today. I cried during the taping of that. Frigging podcast because what am i guess. S and stuff that was so real light tier two to tap. Into your drought splash. Laura was last week. I mean every day she walks in the building. She's like me. she hasn't crying craft. she really really good cry on sunday. A really good cry. Release everything you know. What are so sorry. The last time. I cried for real actually. Wanna tell the story. Because when i was in denver at the all star game they did a pre-game tribute to henry louis. Aaron not an hank. We call them henry louis aaron in this household salad and his whole family family but like his his his wife is his daughter. Were there and it was a tribute to him. Lenny kravitz actually narrated. And i was in full tears in the press box like tears came out of my eyeballs. I had to take my glasses off and regroup because it was that emotional. They had all the players. Were wearing forty four. The day more in homerun derby and they had the forty four inscription in the What's it called in. the outfield. Legitimately cried at that like it was. It was very difficult and very emotional. Self yeah greg yeah we can do another one all right so this one goes to back this.

Is carlos right with a different guy though as he does like his cousin from the dominican. Exactly he's a little harder core. He's also you wanna meet detroit l. Let's not the one that then. Yes junior year in high school. Els that would you rather choose game every day at five thirty. Forget at six thirty our muslim segment on the show which is big deal or no deal but coming up next jalen ramsey. I love the rams. Jalen ramsey says some stuff and he has said it. We will tell you what he actually said in. Just a moment. We'll be breaking for one minute and forty five seconds all year. Big pimping Humor yesterday. george we're talking about great emcee voices and we didn't mention jay. We did not mentioned jay. Your i think he has a great voice. Yes or a memorable mc yes down the ladder. Say i mean great is great. Really tough for me. It's really tough for you. I mean great. It's a tough thing for me to say about him. I think it's memorable. But i don't think it's great voice or him period. His voice because to me agreed voices of rappers. Rabid wanna listen you do other things you know what i'm saying like i'm not really interesting listening to jay z. Talk gotcha right right. Use your voice. Those face killing no questions asked okay. Follow benefit right. There wasn't it. I mean we've got some really cool. Anniversaries movie anniversaries today. So which one of these films strikes you. We'll get into the jalen ramsey stuff that he said from The rams notable voice. Yes yes wedding. Crashers opened sixteen years ago. Today with vince. Vaughn and owen wilson. There is there's something about mary. Premiered in theaters twenty three years ago at cameron diaz natural and ben stiller angels outfield premier. Twenty seven years ago today in one thousand nine hundred ninety. Four and true lies with arnold schwarzenegger. Jamie lee curtis premiered in theaters twenty-seven years ago today of those four movies which is the one that you is the most watchable for you. True is nine. Wow not even pausing i. I went on an after school. Date to see true lies with the girl definitely made out. After it was awesome allies like seventh grade. It was tied. You sound sound great. Seventh grade reliving his seventh grade eight. Yeah i i love all those movies. Like i think to a certain extent re watchable. But i wouldn't be true lies. Because i probably haven't seen that one in a really long time. I think it's between something about mary and wedding crashers for me. And if i had to guess which one i've seen more. It's probably something about mary to be honest with you. Hey it's brett fiver. Let me think about something about mary. This is i think you're gonna understand the cells. That movie came a time in which like everybody who was pretty wack that i knew love and it was not even a reflection of the movie. I was just like if you like this movie and you liked this movie. I'm not gonna like this movie. And i was sort of like pre predestined to have a problem with wedding crashers. I feel like there's the comedy standup in wedding. Crashers do we get into some problematic zones or is it not as funny. I mean sure lies is a straight up action movie. Yeah which unfunny buddy cops him. Funny bits in. And tom arnold. Yeah true lies tom. Arnold movie jamie. Lee curtis man. No no the muddy cop part of it is brilliant in them. No she great great movie. Yeah no she's great. But i was just referring to the comedy with between tom arnold and he knows so personally. I find the comedy of jamie. Lee curtis to be superior to anyone's comedy. That's in the movie when she's trying to do to strip. Tease falls very funny. That is funny bad every single time way more than any other comedic moment in the film. Because i've been there. Were you trying to like you know. Put it on somebody and then with your boots when my heavy and you kick him in the head knock them out and you've got to wake him up and that's bad for business but no i. I just think that she is so good. Because she's the best actor or actor in the movie so of course she's gonna shine the most important. Yes no question. yeah for sure. Speaking of great actors you know jalen ramsey acts a acts out the best cornerback role if i had to pick a guy in the nfl right now if they were giving away an academy award for corners jalen ramsey would certainly be in consideration. So he says this about his new teammate. Matthew stafford he said it was asked if he would put him over the top if he believes they would put him over the top. This year as in matthew stafford will put them over the top. He says different vibe. This season nosy. Which boy matt stafford from the formerly the detroit lions now look. I believe that. Matthew stafford is an upgrade. Jared goff i know not. Everyone believes that. Necessarily but i think this dude finally. He's got squat around him. He's got a defense around him. He's got a coach around him. He's got the whole shebang. And i feel like the rams have a ton of pressure on them because of that but i think that they will thrive under that pressure or first of all. Let me some jalen ramsey. But he's list about twenty players can take them over the top so well. He's been recruited hard on everybody all he's eighteen. Somebody's oh is available. He's they come down even as the disgruntled. He's like we'll put us over the top so you think you're seeing it open and closed much him. Extra point is a jalen. Ramsey is the is the epitome of light. The lakers twitter feed right everybody's available everybody's us better and in and by the way neither lakers twitter feed nor of ramsey's wrong. The players that he's talking about. Oh yeah they're outstanding players down but when it comes to matt stafford. I'm just under the belief and i don't want to be arrogant about it. Whatever but i think by in large the people who don't think matt stafford's and upgrade jared goff just having watched those two as long as people like me have. I'm from detroit. So i've seen that staffers from jump from rookie year. When you had calvin johnson's without cameron johnson. I know what that is. Similarly i've watched jared goff since his rookie year all the way through. this stretches. Were jeff fisher. Watching that ish live at the kalo to super bowl was at new orleans when he played brilliantly in the second half at the nfc championship game. So i've seen both of them a lot. And i'm just gonna tell you man it's not even close right it just not. It's not even close and that doesn't necessarily mean bam rams are gonna win the super bowl because there's a lot of other factors at play in terms of winning super bowl including luck but if you're asking me in terms of just pure athleticism and arm talent. Matthew stafford is a much better. Qb than jared. Goff well i think you know. I don't wanna say that skill sets and arm towns. Don't matter but i will say that. What impressed me most not impressed me but made an impression on me about would would would ramsey had to say. Is that like look if a guy walks into the building and he changes the attitude of player on defense that is in itself a large win on its own and like that to me is why stafford. In fact i think just has to be considered an upgrade because he gives more confidence to the entire team. And that's a huge deal when you're talking about a guy under center. I'm not taking this lightly at all. I don't need to go chalk. Talk to skill sets one guy the other if the defense is confident in the other side of the ball for once regarding you know what's happening with the rams that's a win at this stage of the season which is not the season for me his decision making. We'll be the biggest difference because you you know that one jarrett is a lot slower releasing the ball and and i'm not just talking about his throwing motion though that is slower than matt stafford's but also his progressions. He's just slower at that. And when you add in a blitz or when you add in extra pressure because you're offensive line is injured or they missed you. Know a block or whatever it is. Matt stafford has proven repeatedly inability to quickly process. What's happening on the field. In a way that jared goff is learning how to do it. I think jared goff is still a very good quarterback. And i think he'll be okay for detroit. I'm a little worried about the coaching situation. I'm a lot worried about their town around him. But jared goff is a talented qb but matt stafford lost arguably the best wide receiver in the franchise history and from a statistical point of view. Anyway didn't miss a beat. You took away. Cooper kupp from jared goff and we were like damn. Don't look what what's going on matter chris o. Crippling tell you man like this mean that they're destined to win the super bowl but if you're asking me in terms of that one position it's an upgrade has to be. I think there's any question i think. That's average is way underrated. He's played for arguably the worst franchise in the sport. And i think that despite that he has handled with the amount of grace that i don't think many people would have handled my guess elza more another guy would have been drafted there with that kind of talent. He probably would have been out of their way earlier than that. Or i'm sorry. Could you repeat that. I said if another guy named matt stafford would have been drafted to the detroit lions. I don't think it's. I don't think he would've been in detroit that law that i don't know because the money was so right. The money was right. They played a bail if the situation is sideways. You know yeah yeah. I mean now. We're it's been around for a minute right. He's he's been there for a while. And i remember when he signed his latest extension in detroit. You know which was like five. Six years ago. And i was telling key i was like i wouldn't pay him and is not because he's not good enough for the money is that we're not good enough to pour that money in one position because we're not that close to winning anything but you know i never wavered on his talent and i think a lot of people who aren't familiar with who he is as a player are going to be pleasantly surprised to see what happens when the blitz come. We're going to be back in three minutes. Let's get into the nba finals. A little bit clinton was at all star weekend. We lot of stuff to catch up on. Plus what you need to. We'll come up in three minutes next year on seventeen. Espn hey what's up everybody. This l z. Granderson here to tell you about my new podcast. Eighty audio card life out loud.

Great again, hat and own a piece of history again, that's gre Y two, eight, eight, zero, two two to enter to win this contest and join president trump in the fight to keep America great for four more years. This was painful Donald J trump for President Inc Is here on the blaze radio network. There is so much today we're going to get right to it. Seattle mayor. Jenny Durkan. This is something. We let's just set us off yesterday when we first saw thought and I, it's been gnawing at me for almost twenty four hours now. Oh, no I mean, it's just unbelievable. It's just under the fear mongering. That is going on with these Democrats and. The placing the blame on others they accept no personal responsibility for anything that's going on and CNN's Erin Burnett was interviewing Mayor Jenny Durkan of Seattle and here's here just. This is one of those where you get the duct tape out and tape up your head. Ahead of time. The ask you because some of these images you know they're they're they're ugly I mean a starbucks destroyed the protests at construction site for juvenile detention facility set on fire Seattle police say officers were burned when protestors threw explosive devices at them and and look a lot of what's happening here. This is not peaceful. This is just violent and destructive, and the president says he thinks mayors like you are refusing his help and those standby forces because he's the one offering it. Does he does he have a point. Oh. What do you think she's going to say here will yeah, of course he does of course he's got a point Aaron. Yes. Thank you for asking me that question I want to accept responsibility tells a CNN anchor could ever get to agreeing with president trump is when they lead into a question with. A point. Gee I. Wonder. What. Will. Be No. Wait a minute. You don't agree he's got a point. All right. Well, what's the deal then and the president's actions clearly have escalated things in Seattle. Okay. It's his fault blame trump for the violence in Seattle because he sent federal troops by the way federal troops are always in federal buildings I mean that's where they that's where they live. Of. That's it's their job to protect federal buildings I. Think he might have reinforced that he sent some extras and later today we'll have video bill bar who makes that very point at his hearing yesterday. Thank goodness shroff the country I was just talking to a number of mayors throughout the country who saw a similar thing that people wanting to act out against the president and his administration the streets. Okay. I believe if you look at what happened yesterday and Sunday again, it was peaceful. We had a number of peaceful protests. They've had a number of peaceful protests. What is that number two? How many? Peaceful. You've also had a number of violent protests. What is that number? It's a lot larger that peaceful. The qualifies for You keep using that word. And what we've seen is every time this president promises to sow division he successful at it. Wait. When did Donald Trump ever promised to slow division I must have missed that speech I promise that I will so beautiful division. Beautiful it it's tremendous division I will so it and actually one of the best sellers ever. I'm a great sewer. I can tell you that I'm the best. So you can't. So but I can. So i. so tremendously believe me. But people say that I'm the best sewing I also crochet. he missed again, I missed that speech. He gave this. He's clearly targeted cities run by democratic mayors. He said he's clearly targeted cities run by Democrat mayors, I wonder why? Could it be that? That's where the violence is happening night after night after night. The most is that possible that that's where all of the crap is hitting the fan right now. So himself, he's using law enforcement is a political tool I hate to say, Erin but I really believe that we are seeing the dry run for martial law. Oh my gosh. Now she hates to say. Which of course, she doesn't hate to say, obviously. She has to say it because that's the talking point of these hideous. Marxists. Now, that's the one they've agreed on. We're going to say that he is preparing martial law. Everybody, bring that up in your interviews. The outrageously irresponsible even treasonous. You are fear mongering to the point now where you're inciting their the lunatic left in this country to further violence and further hatred of the president and this nation. I it's despicable. What's going on here? They're trying to lead us down a path to civil war. Is. The president that is using law enforcement federal forces for political purposes, and that should be chilling to every American don't. Do to stop it. What do you do stop it? We will continue to do I think the number one we can do to bring peace to the streets Seattle and across America rush to bring more justice to the systems. Okay Alright. Sure. Yes. Exactly. In other words plan, we're doing nothing to stop it. In fact, we like it. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA. Continue do nothing about the mayhem Aaron. In. Fact yet, we're going to encourage it. As we've been doing up until this point. And I guess it'll stop Aaron, win Seattle Portland and Oakland and every other liberal Hellhole in this country are burned to the stink ground. That's that's one of those stop is when there's nothing left to set on fire. Let's just think back to. A decade ago maybe a little more than a decade. Now it's amazing how much time has gone by and how quickly. You, remember what the Obamas told us. That they were going to do. They being the Marxists and communists and anarchists that they are in league with the left-wing mob they told us over and over exactly what they were going to do. Away from. Transforming the United States. There was this Michelle and Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices. HAVE TO CHANGE OUR CONVERSATION We're going to have to change our traditions history. We're GONNA hack. into a different place. Wow. Isn't isn't our country being transformed right now? And aren't they changing our history right now the sixteen nineteen project they're literally trying to change our history. Our culture, our traditions, they've moved us into a different place a place where we can't stand each other. They successfully. Did it. Before Obama we didn't. We didn't have this horrific division in our nation. We weren't at each other we had disagreements. In, certainly, the left hated Joe W Bush with a passion. But this is a whole other level. Now, I mean this, this hatred has spread now. They don't just hate like a George W Bush or Donald Trump they hate America now and they hate American values. They seem to hate white people. And they've laid the blame for every single wrong. That's ever happened to them and this country at the doorstep of Whitey. I mean until now. Until this fundamental transformation, they've never been able to overcome the firewall of the American founders because Americans. Love the founding fathers we knew they weren't perfect. But we also knew what they were up against. We knew the complexities that they faced. And we also understood as Americans these were really good men that these were inspired men. And, we've always believed in and revered them. And that founding firewall. Protected the American principles. Of Freedom upon which they built this country that firewall protected the constitution, the Declaration of independence. It it led to individualism. Believed in these principles and the opportunities that we have in this country to make our own way well now, these radical revolutionaries have hacked our founding firewall. They've successfully tainted the founding fathers. They poison that tree of liberty. And now the fruit of that poison tree, the US Constitution has been corrupted. In the minds of so many. What everybody wants agreed on we can't even get together on it anymore. Once you disparage the founders. Now you can attack everything they created. Including, negating all the brilliant inspired work they did. So. So what now where do we go? What do we do? For one thing I think families with school age kids must have real. Truthful American history in their homes you gotTA teach it to your kids yourself. You can't count on. You cannot count on the educational system in this country. Any more. If you don't have it by it the five thousand year leap. GotTa have that that that is a must to teach your children with and read it with your kids absolutely anybody get a ton of information out of that thing you'll love it and so will they it's really good. It's it's interesting and it's real and it's true. There might not be a better way to teach American history. Yeah in the world. Teach to your kids at home. Make sure that they get that foundation the love for this country if we grow up with generations of. And young adults who hate this country. I we've got no chance. We've got no chance to continue as a country. If it's possible if you can I think from now on, you need to home school your kids. You can't. Again you can't count on the school system anymore it is infested. With almost the whole educational system. Now, the sixteen nineteen project being the latest among them. Yeah and with these lockdowns and these schools not starting up. One thing that is really taken root is called diesel school pods where just like minded moms are getting together and maybe they're pulling their money and hiring. A teacher to teach their kids. In their homes that'd be cool. So if anything this opportunity as frustrating and insane as the lockdowns are. This opportunities falling into people's laps right now yeah, and giving you maybe it gives you an alternative. Yes, exactly. get original source books, the books that are from prior to the progressive agent like say nineteen. Twenty. Teach your kids at home even if he can't homeschool full-time at least supplement with getting somewhere else get books like the real George Washington the Real Thomas Jefferson the real Benjamin Franklin they're so good and they're absolutely true and they will teach you who these men really were and teach your children who these men really were. Yeah and and I have used to wall builders dot org. I'm just GONNA check here mean they've got got to have the all sorts of great books that you can order directly from them just looking to see where you would go on the website. Let's see library maybe. Yeah. Yeah. So just go to wall builders. And that's a great place to start as far as a Resources for your kids. Have to do it. You have to do it. I mean, our schools are just blindly following down this path of Marxism they're not. They're not looking into any of it. She's when when you see the things that are going on all around you even at supposedly conservative schools. mean the black lives matter stuff With the organization again, separating the actual statement, black lives. Of course, they do matter of course they matter, but the organization is. evil. It's teaching Marxism. It's teaching break-up of the nuclear family. Is that what you want in your conservative college if not, maybe better check you've allowed into your conservative college. Black. Lives matter and the sixteen nineteen project in cities and wrong. Wake up, people. Wake up at these universities and realize you can't just cave to everything. I it's it's mind boggling to me that they've allowed it mind boggling. If you do go to twitter at unleashed, we will have a link to while builders. This is not a sponsorship we're getting nothing for this just a place that you could go to maybe start a library for teaching your kids America's Godly heritage is a book there. Live of the of the signers. Benjamin, rush book seriously gotTA check him out. He's underrated listen to this setting the record straight American history and black and white i. mean this goes through the black founders. So great resources at Pat Unleash will have it on twitter page. So you can click right there and they look if you WANNA black project. Yeah. Look into the stuff of wall builders that the the David Bartman Glenn put together about the black founders. And look into that and. That to black kids, show them how they are. You know how they were. In part responsible for helping to build this country yeah and don't forget David. Barton's book. Jefferson lies setting the record straight on how he has been though my God aligned. She's that whole Sally, hemmings thing where he fathered a whole generations, six children or something with her come on. No, it did not happen. It's a lie. And it's again it's. History they've successfully done it. Well they took. You took DNA tasked right the proved one of twenty eight people in the Jefferson family were responsible. And everybody who knew Thomas Jefferson do he wasn't that was not in his character to do something like that. To have sex with his slave. And it was in the character of others family his nephew is brother. So if you're looking for a Jefferson depended on, it wasn't Thomas. Triple eight nine, hundred, thirty, three, ninety-three. Let me tell you about Patriot mobile. While the left embraces all of this stuff and the canceled culture. Maybe, at least we get into part of that, cancel your left wing supporting cell phone provider and make the switch to America's only conservative cell phone carrier.

All right file, but I would check in. gave do I can't believe what's going on right now own man. Attorney General Bar yesterday said something during the course of he said. Several things during the course of the hearing but one of the things he said when they were. When they were you know. Just, berating him for sending federal troops in. was. When did it become OK to burn down federal buildings? When when did that become a when is that right? We have that do we do? We have that very See what got. Let's let's go ahead and get into the The hearing was exciting right? I mean, it was exciting. Yeah. Yeah. Let's start with. You can't say whatever you want. Okay. No, I know what the policy. The. Time. Mr Chairman. Co.. Chairman Generally MR chairman point of eighty point of order Mr Mac what purpose does the gentleman? Is it permissible for a member of this committee to accuse the sitting attorney general of the United States of murder because that's what we just heard those words and it'd be struck from this record. This is outrageous the member. Time Mr Chairman just say whatever they want about rules of decorum. LAVAR MR, chairman. I actually have a clarification Mr Chairman Esko Bars I. Play by the EV has number unregistered. The United States in Venezuela I just wanted clarification what was the video Is Not stating. Point of boredom. Escobar's recognized cheese. was I mean? That is that's a popular CBS channel on a Friday night. You can't hear anybody man. Come on that was. It's just a cluster. Thing thing. A cluster thing you know. It is because. I don't even know what they're talking about by the end of it. In just yelling at each other screaming over each other. and bars just sitting there. I, love that. That's what's so funny. His entire time the camera back and forth. Okay back to you. All right back to you, Bob. Bill. Now, your turn. then. Then, bar talked about the ANTIFA attack on the church in DC. Where that the rector of the church? Episcopal archbishop of Washington and the presiding bishop of the PISCOPO church nationally along with the Catholic bishop of the archdiocese of Washington. All denounced this police assault on the civil rights and civil liberties of the people. They do that before or after the fire was. I don't know I don't know the answer that, but it doesn't matter. It doesn't he shut him up. So great funny and again I guess it's okay to burn down even according to their pastors. Get the beliefs out of there and let and t burn down our church. One is going on how is this happened in this country where now it's okay to loot it's OK. The violence is great. If it's not right if it's not a right wing, 'cause that you're talking about and besides. Are doing this violence. But if it's not right wing, whatever violence you want to do is perfectly fine. It's absolutely acceptable. You can steal things from people you can burn down their business you can burn down their church you can do whatever you want. You can slather paint all over walls. The don't belong to you. That's not a problem either you can write whatever message you want in the street if it happens to be a left-wing message. Wow So what what have you want to attack a federal courthouse in say. Pick. A random play like Portland Oregon like Portland. Yeah. Cool. Well, are there federal troops there are they are federal troops in that city? Federal troops. I told them I said if you don't want federal troops in your city, then attack buildings that aren't federally owned. Then you can't make this stretch of justification of sending in federal agents they focused on this courthouse, they really want to bring it down. Because it's Nice and well, it's federal I they. WanNa make a statement here. Yeah I was informed that's like a historical building. and anyhow yeah. So he was asked about this. Those a funny answer federal courts are under attack since one is it okay. To try to burn down a federal court, they someone went down the street to the pretty in court here that beautiful courthouse we have right at the bottom of the hill and started breaking windows and firing industrial grade fireworks into start a fire throw kerosene balloons in and start fires in the court. Is that okay? Is that okay now no, the US marshals have a duty to stop that defend the courthouse and that's what we are doing in Portland we are at the courthouse defending the courthouse we're not looking for trouble. Then test when you say it like that. Fantastic. Yeah it sounds like they're doing something bad when you say like that. Let Him, burn it down if they want to what? What's the big deal I mean they're having some fun. Are you getting in the way of their fun. it is it is it incredible how these Democrats? Virtually all of them just don't they have. They're not concerned at all. They're perfectly fine with all of this violence. Yeah. Yeah and and there there's there's talk of well why they whisking them away you know like Gestapo or something like that. Well. I don't know if you've seen the images on the news lately but if they tried to question them there, they would probably be murdered in the street so they have to get them. Off Site temporarily figure out. Okay. Are you the guy we're looking for? Are you the one that fits the description blah blah blah, and also they're like, oh, well, they're not identifying themselves when they're they're you know and all that stuff. Yeah. Do you want them killed? You want them docks you went their families I mean because that's the scenario you've set up. This violence has set up the scenario that makes it justifiable to conceal the identities of these federal agents. Otherwise. Back home the wife and the little kids are going to draw knows what happened to them. And they have no compunction. In fact, they're saying that we need to make them uncomfortable in their homes and that's why they're showing up the homes. They were just at the homeland security chiefs home home and surrounded the other night. A whole bunch of antiques, Douche bags surrounded the homeland security chiefs house in the middle of the night. Yeah. We gotta make them uncomfortable. No, you don't have to show up at their house into no. No I'm sorry. That's that's out of bounds. Now you crossed the line. Okay but it's not like I mean these are crazy far fringe leftist activist pat it's not like they got the okay from Congress woman at some point that said do this.

The five thousand year leap is a must it's a must. It's a lot of words though it's a lot of words a lot of quite a few words in. The book very few pictures or if you pick. A few words in in the five thousand yearly. Yeah. But you might accidentally. Yeah. What your kids to have a foundation seriously there's nothing better than that. There's nothing better as a history book for America. Then, the five thousand yearly and they're broken into chapters where they you know each chapter is different freedom. Planes. Got To please read the book yet, and then you know then you graduate to some other things like I don't know the federalist papers which will explain to you the constitution. The reasons for each of that's another one with the components of the US. Words, a lot of words hold on there's some big ones. Some slogging of war. You GotTa do some intellectual logging through that thing but it's worth. It Atlas Shrugged Atlas shrugged odds and other one. And entertaining to it's fun. Yeah. Plus you could just watch the movie if you want. Our. Horrific. Skirt. But still. Still you get along you. I have never known a book and a movie to be that far apart than atlas shrugged on the big screen stopping read the book and part of the problem is I don't think it was for the big screen. Wasn't it a TV house? One of those like through the DVD it was it was pretty bad it sure was. From Stephen Hall. The Bar hearing was a circus Nadler's pants was the tent. Also. Got A good Jerry Nadler. He's leaving fat guy and his pants are big enough to be a circus. Tandy that's what we're doing. been. Music's playing to how weird that's weird that is. The elephants law. What we call the business segue. Nobody mistakes that for a slam on you as we all know about Against the elephants. So chicken in the news again, chicken in the news again last week I told you that KFC announce no with test it's. Three D. bio printing technology was going to create the chicken nugget that will mimic the taste and appearance of the original nuggets. No thanks yesterday at noon KFC and cracks launched the KFC crocs clogs that. Are topped with the chicken Senate drumstick. Charms And they're going to be sold at the cracks website. The crocs themselves are a picture of the KFC bucket nats and the shoes are going to be sixty dollars a pair and the three dollars from each pair. We're going to go towards the KFC Foundation Scholarship Fund for employees. Now, I checked in yesterday forty, five minutes twelve, forty five. Sold out I bet I don't know I don't know how how fast it took them to sell it out but at twelve, forty, five, eastern, it was sold out. So I mean. I hope you enjoy walking around smelling like little. Chicken. Yeah. Would you try to eat somebody if they walk by you and they were wearing though? Well, they made a point of saying it wasn't edible, but you might give it a shot. Dang with chicken chick-fil-a to being Last week, we the US mint issued a statement requesting consumers to begin spending their coins because we have a coin shortage a chick-fil-a in Virginia said, it's going to hand out free food vouchers to those who bring in ten dollars in coins getting out of Control Man and I saw the root of this, which it makes sense. If you think about it is, is I don't know I don't want to steal the thunder of your story there but do you have the root of it? You know why it's happening the coin shortage was it happening of the pandemic pattern? If you know the people aren't spending their coins? Okay. What are you talking about? And it doesn't matter because if you give chick fillet which I think should happen all over the country. By the way, every chick-fil-a should be doing this. You bring in ten dollars worth of coins and get ten dollars cash back and they give you the card. The gets you either it's nice either a chick-fil-a sandwich nuggets or a grilled chicken. I should do that because I got a bunch of coins. Turn. Virginia right now that's what I'm saying. Be available across the country should basically. laundromats and stuff or close, and so it just people weren't using coins and now we're trying to get back on track to make sense. Yeah. Yeah. Does and like I said, chicken to the news today is National Chicken Wing Day which brings us to the NBA and the Los Angeles Clippers player Lou Williams who is being investigated by the League for allegedly visiting a Strip club I'm sorry gentlemen's Club. After he left Disneyworld, the corona virus. Few grandfather. was grandfather's funeral and then he went to which was in Los Angeles right and then he went to Atlanta to a strip club well, magic city up the exact look he grew up in Atlanta. and. They had the after party after the funeral I, the part of the gathering. At Magic City and look a he was there and then you know Rapper Jack. Harlow posted on his instagram account a picture of them. Yeah. which he later deleted and he said Harlow tried to tried to say that it was an old. Williams never tried to deny it because the mask that Williams was actually the mass off the magic it give them. Awesome. Wasn't old photos. But he didn't try to I. Mean that was harlow that tried to say it was an old photo tried to cover up for his friend but Williams said Hey I attended a dinner there following the funeral. Off Let me let me play the role of Jesse. Quick Look we all know among us. We all look. Differently all right we'll look. Treated your way. All grieving. Treated ask any of my teammates what's my favorite restaurants? LANTA AIN'T? Ain't nobody party and chill out and he also then he re tweeted later magic city got the best wings in the city. Up in Atlanta, he played there for a couple of years and Keith I don't have to tell you this but magic city is just a few blocks from the hawks homecourt. Downtown Atlanta and they have their signature wings named after him on the menu. Louisville lemon pepper barbecue wings. So it is. Go. So check them out that now he's under a ten day quarantine you know so he probably could have gotten longer. I know there's the other player that got The got into quarantine because he picked up some food out of an unsecured area outside of the bubble as well. So just helpful hint go to a funeral grandfather means for gathering. good tip. She asked You know why you're a strip club or gentleman's club. For the wings so among what he's trying. They're their. Among. seriously. It's a gathering for a gathering of remembrance of life. They have to go to a place that has wings named after you just so happens is that it's a gentleman's club yet. So just a reminder. Jeffey we're going for the blackout square on Bingos so we can have a second winner this week I swear if you don't say who among us right now.

Right and he probably did practice I mean if you only do that, you'd want to practice a little bit right Much younger than him and I have thrown my arm out throwing the ball one time. So I guess whatever. But. They're just I dunno lob it or something right underhand I. Don't know what you WanNa? Do. He says instead put my normal motion of just lobbing the ball which would have been the best thing to do I thought Oh baby I better. Put a lot of different oath into it but you just throw your admitted. You're already thrown out your arm and I did and you saw what happened yes we did figure for using a little bar. That throwing out the arm would just compensate. But no, it doesn't matter because he's going to receive a major human rights, our he and call him. Already quick. Off. It. Sh- Cullen capper nick is going to receive the Robert F kitty. Human Rights, award. Both he and saint algae of DC are receiving this award. So that's great. That's given to.

You know I heard Colin capper nick say it was about the flag and I'm not getting Neil. So, and I posted the story of the lady from Yugoslavia who says Hey America, wake up thirty years ago. This was our country over here that you're you're right on the edge and one of the things she said was. Stop, trying to defend your views. You know just don't back don't don't just just say you know if they call you a racist or whatever. Just let it go. You can't sit there and try to appease people that are going to call you out for taking a small. They don't care. It doesn't matter where it doesn't matter if you you. We've seen that in all of these peaceful protests that. Doesn't matter history knowing it knowing what their protest doesn't matter they don't care burn down. So it makes doesn't you're you're wasting your breath but to straighten it out, just be how we're up against revolutionaries. They're not.

If you don't believe me just take the rough Greens fourteen day jumpstart challenge it's fourteen, ninety five and you'll see the difference in your dog in fourteen days or less.

Right exactly and then I go along with the with the. The Prevailing clinical trials that have looked at the efficacy of hydroxy show. That it is not effective in corona virus. Disease. And I. One of the re tweets from the president also, it's interesting because I just heard the way this works it doesn't actually hydroxy clerk win. Doesn't fight the disease it fights your body fighting itself. It stops your body from doing. That is my understanding of it is or yeah. So that's what it does. It doesn't actually fight the virus itself. It allows your body to stop fighting itself so that it could fight the virus right? That's what hydroxy clerk does. Is You misleading the public on many issue even been at the NIH since one, thousand, nine, hundred, four, you've advised presidents. Can you continue to do your job when the President United States is publicly questioning your credibility in this way? No no I can't you know George. I. I. Don't know how to address that. I'm just going to certainly continue doing my job i. I don't tweet I. Don't I don't even read them. So I I don't really want to go there I just on Paris do my job no matter which is. Very important we're not of crisis with regard to an epidemic. This is what you for all your. Professional life and. That's all he does all these people. He's the saint. That's all he does. The sainted Foudy is just about one thing and that saving lives that's all he's about K. so. Just trying to tell you hydroxy Clark and doesn't work. So for all the people it's worked for sorry you're wrong. It didn't as we found out really sick right has his how many years has eighty four ben in public service at at great personal cost. So. Taking either. Again either so everything that I have heard from medical people and people who've done hydro is it hydroxy clerk when has actually worked and there is evidence of that And that masks really don't do anything not the ones were wearing anyway, and let's say, let's say that complete opposite of what he says and let's say the facts show hydrochloric when doesn't Fight the disease right as we just said, it does. It helps you not fight yourself. So the able to fight the disease, right? Why not say that? Right instead of saying it doesn't work. It doesn't work. We just was it last week there was. Yeah We had the call from. Nano. Remember where was Pennsylvania and he said his family virtually his whole family. Got It. The kids got it. He got it and they weren't that sick but his wife was got it and wound up in the hospital. They would not give her hydroxy clerk when she kept getting worse finally brought her home had their primary physician. Prescribe finally, hydroxy cleric within twelve hours. Better within twelve hours, it doesn't work. Yeah. But it doesn't work. There's the efficacy of. Clarke Clarke later. Advocacy shot up. And I mean thousands of people have been treated with it tens of thousands probably maybe hundreds of thousands and it's worked for many of them. Dodgers have have said so so I. Then, then they're pointing to this, we should talk about this latest Dr, to in fact, we played some of what she had to say yesterday about hydroxy clerk when but she's crazy. She said some other things and they're using her now to discredit hydroxyethyl. Gray unleashed. Welcome to. Great to have you with this triple eight, nine, hundred, thirty, three, ninety, three. Okay, the doctor we played yesterday. She was standing with a group of doctors and she was talking about hydroxy chloroquine, and then she was saying how many patients treated with Houston yeah and she called it a cure which you know. Okay with that but. It's it's. People it really has now found she can denied all he wants to say there's no evidence will get Outta here. Of course, there's evidence there's actual. There's actual evidence from doctors who have used it and saved patients with I mean there's actual I don't know surviving humans that used it less claim to that it would save them and we've heard from several of them. Okay. So this doctor has mother very strange beliefs. Okay. So now they're using her. Calling her insane. As a way to discredit hydroxy Quinn. So everything she said about hydroxy clerk win is null and void now I guess I mean because. She says that other medical conditions. Are caused by a people having sex in their dreams with demons and witches I'm sorry. Can you recap London Leah Gynecological problems like cysts and endometriosis? Caused by people having sex in their dreams with demons and witches. Saying that that doesn't make sense I. You know who am I? Say among us. Some. Important to their dream move. I, Tell Ya On that. That you have and. We'd like to hear about that but we're all. A lot of time I'm willing to invest. Time. To talk about the ripped. The government now on because apparently actual video footage of that. We have. So. So. So you don't, and that's what. Everybody is saying, okay. She says are drugs clerk wins a cure. She also says Blah Blah Blah. Blah Lula. Okay I doesn't mean hydroxy. Clark wind doesn't work. No does not. Know it does not. And may not be a cure and may not work for every single. But I think when you're a doctor who knows how to use it and knows who to use it on. When do use it during the course of the I? Think it's to be used earlier rather than later. but I know that there was a doctor who said he used it late in the treatment of some of these people and they they pulled out of it so. I blow my my evidence is my my nephew that was really sick with a corona virus with covid nineteen and I mean they finally. gave him the hydroxy Corcoran. It saved him. So I mean, that's just look. Okay. So you're right. It doesn't work just on him. That one person that's weird. I know that's weird. It's must have had the right metabolism. that. Hold out. Anyway. Okay. All right. We. So I don't know I mean you know now we're being told. That even after the the develop a vaccine. We still have to wear masks and socially distance. What? We've been told. Okay. Well, when we get to the vaccine when we get to the vaccine and then you can mobile the vaccine, then things can get back. And now, not even then not even then will be good enough. So we're all going to be good enough. I guess we're always going to have to wear masks socially distance the Gorham now aren't gonNA keep moving. They're gonNA keep moving a goalpost shown that. Over and over and over and over, they've moved the goal posts. So. At first, it was flattened the curve now everybody's got to be cured and we have to be rid of the disease I guess radical from the earth and then maybe we can go back. No not even there. No, it will come right on back. Distance, and wear a mask. The mask is saving everybody. What about some of the different drugs that have been helping people those don't work those don't work. Yeah and and I apologize I mean that metaphor doesn't really work the goal post it really only affects kickers right. I mean I guess it should be moved the goal line shouldn't it WHO's with me? Let's work to change that saying it shouldn't be moved the goalposts unless you're talking about a kicker. He's not into it. Jeffey wants to be into waiting for permission from Pat to be you know your own right but no one is going to do it move the goal line not the goalpost sayings already locked in. Is locked in in the knobs been ripped. down. Now. You GotTa do radio. Talking to you. You. Word. Thank you to get that off my chest I'm sitting here thinking. All. Right. But you know the everybody who is who is claiming all this stuff they've got allies out there anybody who buys into the mask thing buys into it heart it seems and it. That's great. That's fine. I just don't think you should do things like this. this sign has sprung up all over Utah and I don't know if it's in other places now do but I think this is despicable is man they put up these signs in people's yards. For the safety of all massive got a picture and and this is a picture that many many. LDS. Families have in their homes. Wow of Jesus. For the safety of all. Face masks are required to be able to call yourself. My follower are you for this? IS WE HAVE lost. Yeah that's I mean that's disrespectful to me. You're speaking for Jesus now on behalf of mask-wearing. Okay you'RE GONNA. Have to show me. You'RE GONNA have to show me that in the Scriptures I, di- have seen that anywhere Blount read your Bible man thank you. Thank. US. The new new new test and new Shin Yeah revise all. The new. Testament. In light red lettering and everything. That's what we're not. Vouching yes. Yes is. I mean com on. Right there. In in my church, we believe in the constitution we believe in the founding fathers we believe there inspired divinely inspired men the constitutions a divinely inspired document. You're telling me that the constitution allows for the government to mandate that I wear a mask everywhere I go. No, I'm sorry. No no I'm sorry. That is not the case that a sign that they're getting desperate to get their message. Yes, it is. Yes, it is. Hard on them it shows they're losing and they're desperate. Now. Should I wear it because people are asking me to in business? Yes. Yes. I probably should if I can't wear if I. If the if the grocer whose store I want to attend says that I have to have a mask to enter his premises, I should probably wear the mass. Now, what if a shopper right and you're in the store you're not, you're not anyone of authority, but you're just a shopper and you Z. other shoppers in their children. Not Wearing masks should you approach them and Be Really. Well, let's see what would. Jesus. Say about that. I didn't see that on the sign I didn't see that part of. This watch. Weird. Hope you all. You're going you're going to die. I. Hope you will be for. Right, in a little girl's face, are you See at the end. There's a loving couple. Two males that are walking in without mass. Yeah. Finder she didn't go after them. No, no, no no we're going to yell at the Kid. and. The moms trying to explain kids don't have to wear masks. Okay. I mean that's part of this order if you're under the age of ten poor little girls like what four or five, twenty safe I feel pretty safe for my children since you're wearing a mask, I hope you die but again, you can't explain it to she's that lays obviously out of control you can't you're not going to be able to say. Ma'am no, she's not okay. She can't hear. But Hey I guess the kids got off because they weren't maced like the couple in California was for eating in a park without masks on still not sure how you eat with a mask on, but both sides have gotten carried away we. Have seen that I mean this is again. Should I comply if the grocer tells me to put the mask on to come into his business I guess the church wants me to wear when I go to services. I'm going to. I am I'm going to. But should the government mandate that I wear it? No no, they should. Not. I shouldn't be forced to wear it by a government but I feel like these businesses that we're giving the past two of yes. You know their that's their right to say that we wear a mask. If we come into their stores, I feel like those businesses it's I'm okay with them telling their employees to wear masks but I feel it goes businesses just say we're American? Businesses. And you should be able to You know make that choice right and some of them are falling back to that. Fall back to that because of because people are going out of their minds and we've already had a local law enforcement reminding people don't don't take it upon yourselves just go about Your Business Yeah. We've got to. Leave people not up to you go get your go get your Kale and get out. This battle is going to continue to rage. Apparently yeah. And then it's going to have a new about, oh front, which is going to be over the vaccine. And we already I mean look we got airlines. The airlines are saying that you have to wear a mask right and Delta is saying, Hey, if you come to us and say, you don't want to wear a mask or if you can't prove it, we're GONNA put on a list you can't fly with us for I don't know how long and if you say it's a health issue or doctors idea know I'll have to wear a mask prove it. We're GONNA make you prove it before we let you are as they're saying where Your your papers. Yes. Right. And how many people die from the flu every year I'm not I'm not comparing to doesn't exist thirty to sixty thousand a year. More than. All other diseases it's Not Contagious. It's pretty right. So so again, there's never been hysteria already masks or vaccines or any of that stuff. Election Year. Flu. I'm blaming a lot less now, and now I'm just blaming are idiotic leaders here. This is out of control and it's I don't see it getting better. Everybody should have done. What what New York did because look how well they? Moved into the nursing, home. Yeah all the people moving into nursing homes, and then just the old people die but the other people live. So that's fine. Right right. That's how they handled it. New York and he got praised by a Saint Pfau chief. Rely. Federal. Money because. Oh. Boy outside voice she's. All right. Let me tell you about real estate agents I trust dot. com. If you're trying to sell your home, you know how challenging that can be and that's why you need a real estate agent.

The governor asking where's the proof the medical scientific proof that masks? Yeah. We're how show me that masks work because we heard at the beginning they don't, and now there are the be all and end all. And they're they're gonna fix everything now. Now, the cure all diseases I think it's true. They keep from getting anything and you even get gout or combination skin isn't that cool? Yeah. You can't. You can't get the heartbreak of psoriasis.

So she's written back dear Ms. Whoever This letter is in response to your July eighteen, twenty twenty records request received by the office of the government Andy. Shares Office responded Twenty. In your request, you asked for an opportunity to inspect and obtain copies of the indicated scientific data and reports referenced by the Governor. That show that masks work to stop the spread of the corona virus. After a diligent search. Okay. The office of the governor is not in possession of any responsive record. So could be out there. Just not there. They got nothing. They don't have any diligent search of the office. They have no proof. No proof. I mean. He citing prove, and then they can't produce any. That's amazing. That's sure. Is that They could have even found some weird. Goo. Google. Search. Article, nothing nothing. You you could have. At the very least, you could have cited Dr Saint Doctor. Thoug-. Of DC, doctor they didn't even do that. Incredible. 'cause Fudgy hasn't cited any proof that I know of, either in fact if. He just says it is. So that's true. That is true. And you dare not.

Like we do because we still hate it. We still hated we say we love you say we love you. We're going to give you awards, but we APE president trump. I mean, it's ridiculous. IT Australia. Anti. Mask. Sentiment going on. Right. Let's Let's see this. Australia. The Australian not consent consent forced. I hear fire earns you can take control when you'RE CRACKLING EAST We the people to not concern. For you be gone, be Gone Oh. Wait now see now that's poor planning. Barely, even got it near the fire come on. Put It on the fire next time come on. Are we going to wait for their? Okay. Finally flew into the fire. At least one of the best gut. Yeah. yeah one is. A little less dramatic when you toss it into a fire pit and it just goes on the sides. Saying we could ruin absolutely everything even people that really wasn't that difficult thing. Put the South flame right it was windy, right? Yeah. Yeah and she wanted to do it casually. She didn't want to walk over and gently place it on the fire. She wanted to throw it because you're stupid mask isn't worth my time and then she didn't quite get it. Yeah. I mean when you're messing with fire and you're trying to light things on fire though you do want to. Kind of. Plan ahead and figure out what's going to happen like this lady jilted lover something pours gasoline into the back of the vehicle and then set it on fire doesn't think ahead and then poof. Oh Cover fire great. Video. Bell. Man She's finds. She's fine. She can go back and get the cash you at the cash. Desk. Cam. Fine. Car However we'll have an insurance adjuster. How? So that's how you handle a fire video and he was definitely A. Dramatic though that could have caught the other car on fire next to though that's not it's still by it's still my I. Don't know how long that video goes I I I've only watched it. You know watching her get blasted back from the video actually runs like a minute or so and it is I think some cub scouts show up and roast marshmallows and stuff I mean it just oh, out for a while. But yeah, boy that was something no fury Car, bird like that. Right down to nothing. I mean it's really really frame left on the interstate. Tires explode the inside mel I mean. It's really The Fun that was on the way when nothing else is around are you a pair of kind of kind? Of. Car Pool to the parking lot at the one of the radio stations I worked at that was on fire and the guy opened the hood which he should. Not, have opened that and then we just got to watch the whole thing burn right down to nothing and it was fun. Okay. Well, good. Glad you enjoyed I did it was MARTIRES exploding actually I thought about it, but we didn't have any. Time to go get you eight them all. So Plus I prefer more marshmallows frozen. Rosen. That's just. Before the marshmallows frozen frozen marshmallows. Yeah. Never heard of such a roast on the fire or Joe. Triple Eight, nine, hundred, thirty, three, ninety-three you guys see that apple is about to come out with apple glass. The Yeah Apple Glass headset is going to debut pretty soon. They think it's going to be done. To announce maybe by September plus we've got the heads of the new four Mafia families testifying beginning today right in front of the Judiciary Committee in Apple is one of them got google. Yeah they're all their. Families. So what's the thing you're talking about is this where they? This. On your schooling Google glass that they still haven't really perfected and come out with apples to the same thing. So Khloe put it on my screen and it's it's in your in your face and yeah, and so you're looking at this. I I don't know how you walk around. Well, they say the one of the. Things that the studies have shown has been so difficult is to him Just so that you're able to see what's on the screen and still see what's live. But yeah but like sample that would take some getting used. Yes. Who knows what Jeff is going to put on his apple glasses but if if someone is on the other side of him having a conversation, will they know what? What he's looking at no, no no, they won't. They won't be like the reverse which is interesting because on the on the glasses that they showed, it had a record feature which could be really dangerous. I would think for you know what you're looking at, you could be getting. It. Be. Dangerous. You never take your glasses off when you come to bed. Right. Chevy. Just set the glasses. But they apparently this they think that this will replace the iphone. Once as possible. Really they're still talking about glasses and stuff but I really believe we might as well just start putting the helmet on well wearing. The helmet then you have great glasses and then before long it's going to be the chip. The show that we watched the contact lens for a while the the was the contact lens was. Continuing continue yeah. Yeah I mean we're not far from that. We are not. We are not far from it that will not happen in twenty seventy seven like it did in that show that. Coming your way sooner than that. The only difference is like we had the chip that she could upload the. Information Yeah Right And she had the suit was pretty amazing. Yeah it was bulletproof. was really well since I will say that it didn't appear to have a fat guy suit. Didn't appear now there maybe they maybe they'll have one maybe as possible but it did look like the designers were was not designed for athletically over with that was for an inch woman. And it worked out well for the did but. These are apparently going to retail for four, hundred, ninety, nine bucks. That's not bad. Five hundred bucks. You can get these glasses bad. That's really good half the cost of. Cellphone. Yeah. Thousand is. You're going to get the five hundred bucks for the Apple Glass, but you're going to have the phone. Oh, I'm sure you're GONNA have to. That's an apple that's apple westerly. In you're. GonNa if it's like the watch, it won't be as cool. It won't be I. Know That's what I'm saying. that. Diminishes it. And we'll see. So what are you GonNa do with your Apple Glasses Jeffey what are you going to? Do that we're all at a time.

I I have to give a Ellison gratitude to rewatch the bills because it's become the thing that I run to. Yeah. Like, I can't even I'm so ADD with music like I'll make it to songs and then find a reason to stop working out. But with this. It's like, oh, I'm I'm exercising in the in the dead of New York winter while three of my favorite people make jokes about Conair. I could do this for an hour and a half. So like, I've actually lost ten pounds because of the remarkable. Well, we're very proud. We had this on the schedule for awhile. It came out thirty years ago this week and I was thinking over the weekend. Who would be the perfect person to celebrate all the things that are just ridiculous about this movie and lovable then I was like. Oh, remember, I bet remember likes this movie and. And. To nobody's surprise. You're like, yeah. I love that movie. And I really want to have the Wesley Snipes conversation. We've been ready to have my whole life. Let's start there. Actually, let's start with the Snipes a science this nights a science. I'm so I have so many one of the big things about this just dislike dive right into it is even before we get into the run that he had this this kind of started. Is Wesley Snipes the best. Actor athlete ever. Well, I have some disturbing revelations free later in this podcast. I'm just I was thinking athleticism. Okay. Oh, man. The anti already know. But I don't wanna step on the steps of science. But I'm telling you the answer is. No. So I mean, actually, let me let me rephrase that his is. He the best actor does. He have the best sheet of athlete roles. How about the the best sheet of of roles where he's moving. Yes. Okay. Then we can include passenger fifty seven, and we all you money chained. And he it's funny. I had Spike Lee on the podcast like six weeks ago, and we're talking about John, David Washington. And I was saying how I felt like John David Washington, the Wesley Snipes kind of I seven year IMDB run was sitting there for him because he's athletic. He could be inaction guy you'd be sports movie guy. He could be the cop and a cop movie. He's funny. Yeah. And it it really luminated. How rare the the kind of Snipes phenomenon is where he could be the bad guy in the fugitive remake he could be in Money Train. He could be Weltman can jump. He could be Willie Mays as he could be the guy saving the plane in pasture. Fifty seven. This is not a lot of actors like that. Which is why we're talking about the types of science. Yeah. I I mean, I think he is like absolutely incredible in this movie. Like, he like, he like his character is a character who, you know, think. The world of himself. But also is like super happy to be here. Yeah. Which is also kind of where Wesley was as an actor in his real life. And I feel like, but he also knew like Wesley Snipes. Was was actually like you. I'm about to be a hall of Famer same way, Willie Mays Hayes. It's like excuse me. While I start my run to the hall of fame. Like, it's it's it's a beautiful after real life merger. It was a lot of charisma and a lotta swagger, and it is funny that this was his first major role because it was very similar. He just shows up on the scene. He's like, hi, I'm a Manela's star. Now, wait who are you? So from nineteen eighty nine to ninety five this is his IMDB run. And there's only a couple there's only one movie that I don't really remember what happens in major league king of New York, which is the one I I saw thirty years ago. But I don't remember it outset movie motivator blues. Yeah. New Jack city, which has has stood the test of time. We'll say that jungle fever the water dance, which is actually a really good movie. White men can't jump passenger fifty seven best. He bangs out all those in a five and a half year spin. That's wild. And like you could it's the type of thing where like the the five year span is incredible. But he's like pretty strong right up to blade like he's still has gadget man and Money Train and murder at sixteen hundred which is like a Denzel movie that he got to play. But oh, yeah. Well, his next five movies after pasture fifty seven. We're boiling point rising sun, demolition, man. Sugarhill Money Train, not awful, not able like apex types. But still not like the worst run in the world. I saw those movies for like all that happened before blade. Yeah. Like, that's that's incredible. Because like all that happened in then he got a trilogy. Well, he also, you know, we're talking about when you talk about the action here championship belt and the legacy of action movies in all that stuff for whatever reason why I guess we could come up with one of the reasons but black people were not the stars of action movies. And you had action Jackson was basically the only. One of the eighties. And it's funny that it took seven movies until they gave him passenger fifty seven when it's so obvious that should have been green lit the moment. He was Willie Mays as like, all right? Can we have this guy? Save something now since I've been more movies. Yeah. The other thing I really like is that in the first ten minutes. Serano played by Dennis Hays bird, incredible interest. The movie looking like blade. I wonder Wesley was like, you know, I love that. Look, you gotta do that one t founded away. What are the great things about him in this movie? And I feel the same way about Charlie Sheen. Who's also incredible in this movie? They're not in it a lot. They're not in as much as I kind of want them to be in it, which is why when there every seen that they're in it. You're just excited that it's a it's it's really base as again. Oh, cool. It's Charlie Sheen. Yeah, you're right. It's doled out, very carefully. They're able to pull moments in this movie where I'm like, I haven't seen Charlotte's sheen like fifteen minutes year there. Well, we'll we'll get to later the the biggest flaw of this movie, which took away some screen time for those guys. But Snipes was thing we just out of curiosity. What what it? What was the number one Snipes character for you from that night eighty nine and ninety five run the legendary Snipes Assange run new Jack city like that's where I am too. Like for some reason new Jackson. I mean, this is so blasphemous to say, but like for some reason new Jack city lives in the same part of my brain, Malcolm X. Even though Nino Brown is like the worst version of Malcolm X. Yeah. Well, like, I mean, the rooftop scene. I think is is one of the seven or eight most memorable scenes of that entire generation of movie it holds up. So that movie like it feels like it's seven hours long. Oh my God. Like, it's in for a movie to for role to hole up more than white men. Can't jump which is like the like a perfect movie for me. Like, I just he was he was incredible. It's also interesting that during the same era that his career is is blossoming and taking off in a major way Denzel careers. Also taking off a Boston man major way. Yeah. And they were never at conflict. It was almost like a like a Jordan in Pippen type IM BA situation. There's never there's a movie out of those eight. Eight where you would have said, you know, what we really needed Denzel for that one. I mean, that's true new Jack city would have been really interesting. If he's if he's the lead Denzel other than that. I mean, Denzel in white men can't jump. I I don't know if I would have bought it. He's almost like too famous. Now, I think like I feel like Denzel hadn't like Denzel doesn't isn't doesn't work for new Jack city like he's not debt like evil like from like a sense now like, you know, there's just I feel like Denzel. You don't believe Denzel is like a bad guy until he gets older. I don't think he could have pulled off the outfit. It would have seemed like like dressing up as a bad guy. Whereas was his type it all seemed like any movie he's in it all seems like close he would've actually worn. No, I don't need to go to. Silence. Yeah. Tell me what color you need me in. But by the same token, like I wouldn't have wanted to see was Snipes in in Malcolm X or Philadelphia. Now, I might have wanted as what was the movie with John Lithgow that that would virtuosity? No, Russell Crowe. And I forget about virtuosity one of those action movies Snipes could have easily been in. But he he's really great. He's really cares Matic and they drink ricochet. There. Just hasn't really been anybody who is filled this specific type of actor kind of turf since which is why I think John David washed. I don't know if he's funny enough. But I mean, he's I mean, he's got like really good comedic timing when he's policies funny. Yeah. And when he's pretending to be especially over the phone in black clansmen when he's pretending to be a white guy. Like, he's he's hysterical. He's got it easy. But he's more deadpan funny for me. Maybe there's another side. We haven't seen yet Snipes like the white men can't jump because he's a terrible basketball player that will be they have to do a lot of slow MO and a lot of whatever. But he's the charisma that he had was really great. So all right. So we love Cyprus. There's a Charlie Sheen run that are going to have to talk about. Charlie Sheen from eighty six to eighty nine. It's it's pretty epic. I gotta say Lucas fair spew platoon, Wall Street, young guns, eight men out major league that's in four years and how he liked did not stop actor now. And and I like all those movies, and and he's really really good and really really likable in major league. He's he's probably those two characters are my favorite characters in the movie. And he really does seem like a baseball player. And then in the research it comes out like he could throw eighty five he wanted to play professional baseball took stare hurts to get his fastball for the movie, which is basic. Did he talk about that in like later like he did? Okay. Yeah. Yeah. It's my research. And he's just really great as Wild Thing. Say this one of my favorite sports movie characters where do you stand now that we have all the Charlie Sheen? Baggage. I mean, I I look at him. And I it's weird that in the beginning of the movie, I forget that like he becomes someone that I'm rooting for you because he's such like an early movie, dick and just like, you know, the punk vibe everything, but he becomes I like, my big take on this movie is that it's got like the one of the strongest fourth quarters of any film. No questions the first hour this movie, it's kind of like so like, what's the point of this movie? Like, you know, just kind of drags. There's not a lot of baseball. It's just like a lot of it's fine. But not really until you get to the point when they like when the coach tells them about what the owners plan is. Yeah. And and they've like, okay, we got to win the whole fucking thing. Yeah. That's when the movie becomes like, an all time, classic and woods twenty. I think that's why it's a rewatch -able because you know, in the old school way watching TV, we're flipping channels if you came into this movie about sixty percent in and that part was just about to come up. There's no way you're not watching it. If like, oh, cool. They're about to go on and run. Okay. You're completely right. And I think that's the way I saw a lot. Because when I went to go rewatch that I hadn't seen it in years. But when I went to go rewatching it I was like wait win. Is it happen? Like United make up. What happens in majorly? It took a minute for really going. But once it gets going, it's incredible. And she I mean, we know we're going to talk about like what scene, but you know, that last the game against the Yankees. It's just incredible. I mean, yeah. The first hour there's just a lot of Jake Taylor. Trying to win Rene Russo back like way. Creep. Oh that's coming up too. The the other one we talked about for. I am Debbie Reynolds. Who's the other big star this movie, Tom Barringer? Do I always felt like was like I was like to compare the IMDB in the actor careers to basketball players. Yeah. It's like I said the Moncrieff type of career for him in the eighties like way better than anybody realized it's going to take him way longer to get into the hall of fame, then it should. But then if you actually look at the resume, he's one of the signature actors of the eighties. He has the big chill. Eddie and the cruisers put tune someone to watch over me with released God shoot to kill major league. Born on the fourth of July and a seven-year run as pretty great Sydney Moncrieff is the perfect comparison point because like the amount that I know about Barringer is the amount than I know about Moncrieff, which is like I have seven basketball cards of his I never saw him play. Yeah. Well, he was best the second best to guard of the eighties. He might actually he was the best to guard of the eighties and. Just kind of disappeared embarrassing same way. This great run all of a sudden he was like on cheers for a little bit. And then became like a character actor, but he was a leading guy. He's great in the Big Joe in training day. Right. Didn't you know, he he has a whole character actor run after he was in sniper is a Wraith Bartholomew favorite low. Also, tell me 'cause I put bearing her and Corbin Bernsen kinda together. Because like, I know he was also like I never saw LA law read so LA law, but I know people loved LA law. Yeah. So there was this the legacy of whatever the best TV drama was you know, what you go back to like Saint elsewhere early eighties, and he'll stroke, actually, when hillstreet blues Saint elsewhere LA law and LA law had the crown for like I'm gonna say like four or five years, and then it eventually became NYPD blue in ER and then west wing and all those shows, but LA law was like the. The show for three or four years in. He was like the kind of dick playboy wasn't like practice like that level type of show. And you know, this guy had a history or this person. And this person shouldn't have done that. And they're all actors, but it's very dated like it's very very eighties. And he's he kinda belongs to that air. This is where new apex mountain later. This is he had LA law in this movie the same time, it never got better for corporate Burson this. This was this was the the legitimate all-time. Impac. So this movie. It was made by David ward. A lifelong Cleveland Indians fan who actually won an Oscar. He wrote the sting so he had some juice. Oh, wow. Yeah. And he thought the only way he was ever gonna see the Indians actually win. Anything was if he made a sports movie about them. So he put a lot of time and thought into it the the movie was partially partially inspired by the Minnesota Twins owner Calvin Griffith who in the nineteen seventies. When he was trying to make the Metrodome stadium negotiated for an escape clause in the team's lease which said if the team's home attendance was under one point four million per season for three straight years, they could be released from its contract and leave Minnesota and he actually let good players leave. He actually actually did tank and investors did by the team and they almost moved into move to Tampa. And then a local guy bought the team in saved it. So. This actually happened which I had no idea. Did you know that cool? I like that. And so he writes a script he bakes he based all the characters on different baseball players. He liked like Serano is based on the allu- brothers, which was supposedly superstitious Willie Mays. Hayes is based on Ricky Henderson so on and so on rates descript desert, Charlie Sheen's words, though, when I saw the script it wasn't like catnip. It was like crack it was probably as good a script as platoon seriously. Kerley. She'd compay major linked to put to. That guy's got a lot of drugs. Incredible. So. Wow. So anyway, great script and everybody wanted to do it and tune but baseball, and then one of the hooks was you know, he was with Barringer impotent in the studio wanted to get both of them, and it was like a reunion with obviously a lot happier terms. The movie was made for eleven million gross. Nearly fifty million in domestic release eighty two on rotten tomatoes is it higher or lower than you wanted it to be. You know, what I think I think it's I think it should be around eighty six. Eighty eight. Our friend. Roger Ebert who takes a beating on here time the time. He gave major league to one and a half stars which I thought was fair. I could not find. His ranking for major league one for some reason he did not review it sparingly. If he did review it I can find it. Okay. The other ones are not that good major league two's ref. It's a it's it's kinda one of those. I'm okay with it happened. I've watched it a few times. I would also be okay. If it never happened and not having Wesleyan major league too. Is you know, obviously. Yeah. Yeah. I would say rough on. All right.

The most reliable seen remember feel free to throw in one. If I miss something. But here here's what I thought were the most rewatch -able scenes, and what's funny is most of them are very. As we said like the last forty percent of the movie. Yeah, I like the spring training the first day montage when we meet all the guys was a sniper over sleeps. And and then we see they got different guys doing and Charlie Sheen. You know, his fastball going all over the place. I just enjoy it. I like I as spring training. Montage is actually wish we had a little more spring training in this all of a sudden it was like, you know, who's gonna make the team or not red tagged is great the red tag in the locker cho- booth the steak Corbin the Roger Dohrn playing a prank on on Wild Thing and put in the red tag and his lacquer them flipping out. All of that is great. I don't know. Do you think they really did read tag day in real life because it seems a little farfetched it seems a little absurd? But I I mean rewatching it in kind of you know, it's super fun to rewatch move. You haven't seen since in like a decade in full because I kind of forgot. Who was getting cut? 'cause I was there outside of the main characters like there was some actual tension. Yeah. Which I liked it was I mean is a good good good plot point. I liked it up by my one thing with the spring training is I also love it. But the the combination of like, the really like circus music that they have going on here less the manager just doing that thing where he just insults every player. It's like it's it's kind of amazing but coming out of that like gruff like I smoked thirty five Marlboro reds. Yeah. Like voice it actually plays it hits. Well, so I also like a spring training. We're gonna talk about him later. But let's just say he's very well cast. I don't have another rewatch -able seen until the screw the owner. Let's do this montage when the manager gets ever earned together. It's it's it's not a chill scene. But it's close where you know, the team kinda just comes together. And it's like fuck us. Let's let's win the pennant. I can't believe she's doing this. Serano Homer in the egg. So the Yankee game four the whole year the entire Yankee game might be them rewatch -able seen. But if we're going to split it up Sorrento's homers. Great he did it in real life. He actually really did hit the Homer hose shit. And then he runs around the basis with his bat, which I think is absolutely the most underrated part of this movie. I literally wrote at the top of my sheet. Like why does anyone let go of their bad after? Like, honestly like talking about chills. Like, this isn't supposed to be a chills moment when he comes around second and just like pumps his bat to the entire crowd as he's going to third. I'm like that's the coolest thing I've ever seen in baseball history. So you think you think like Jean Jean Carlos Stanton should just do this. Because he's so jacked he's like holding thing that's big for most people like like, it's a sausage link. Yeah. And he's it it literally looks like I would go to war with him. If he had a bat, and he was running. I I love that's the I'm kind of pissed that it never caught on that seems great. The big Homer. They're down to nothing. They need some magic. So we got that one while things last walked to the mound Wild Thing. Coming out of the bullpen and the crowd losing their fucking mind and singing Wild Thing and that whole walk. Hey, Chris Burton? That seems just awesome. And it's legitimate because they packed Milwaukee county stadium with like thirty thousand people and filmed that scene like two or three times and Charlie Sheen was saying it was like the greatest moment of his life. Like walking out of the bullpen. Like, he's ready to run through a wall. It's really well, filmed and. It's just really love it. And then the next one. So I don't know if you group this together, not but then him striking out clue Haywood. Yeah. On three pitches. Just gassing up one. Oh, one kid the. Yeah. But that seems really well filmed, and what you know, what am I obviously, I love sports movies probably more than any other human being on the planet. Baseball pitchers. It's so hard to find an actor who could throw a baseball. And there's only been a couple, you know. And this is the big flaw bull Durham and Charlie Sheen's, actually a really good convincing pitcher because he was and he's throwing you know in the high eighties. They changed the man they made the mound fifty feet instead of sixty. So it seemed like he was even faster than the pitching. And it just seems like a hundred percent legitimate. All of it. It really does seem like he's this firebombing hundred bound our reliever who's striking out the best Yankee rates. So also another reason that scene is so good is that Heywood is an actual is actual baseball player. The. The the actor yet the way he spits. Yeah. I'm like he has to be a baseball player like an actor will never know how to spit as well as a baseball player, and it looks like it's so a shot. So well, I love you know, that you know, that guy won the Cy Young, right? Yeah. Gurvich? Yeah now. Yeah. So he was just a huge pitcher. I think he added on some weight after his career because it looks. I mean, he looks like a like a professional wrestler. So that k was great. And then the the actual ending with the bunt that the Willie Mays scoring from second Tom Barringer pointing to left field. And then doing the running bunt the slow motion of him running down, the baseline all that the Willie Mays crossing home plate, and then jumping in every is all that's really well found it's like a legitimate show scene. It's really good. What did I miss any rewatch -able scenes? Would you have added anything? Yeah. You the one that? I would have added was I love the AmEx commercial. Szeswith it. So you're looking for some Billy clubs apply for that little green homerun heater. Look what it's done for us. People still don't recognize us. But. We're contenders. Now. The American Express card don't still home without it ending with Willie Mays. Hayes sliding and saying don't steal home without it. That's incredible. But for me like I can't talk about this movie without discussing the fact that my favorite television show of all time is twenty four. Oh, yeah. Like, this is so wild to watch. But also in in the AmEx commercial. It's like you hear the AllState shit. He literally sounds like he's selling insurance. And I'm like, wow. This is like it's incredible like crossover. Yeah. Yeah. It's a double crossover, but he's doing in his in his accent that I would love to talk about it, something, you know. What's funny? If American Express just released that as a commercial just randomly just put that into like a final four game as an American Express commercial people lose their fucking minds. Yeah. That'd be incredible. They should done that for the thirty th anniversary. You're right. Most rewatch -able scene for you. What's the answer? My so. Yeah, it's it's obviously from that game. I I had it. I had it from I had it to large. I basically had like the game. It was just like which is forty five minutes. But no, I think it's from. I think it's from the home run to the strikeout honestly like from Serano some run. Yeah. That that is and those are pretty close together. So I guess we could cheat and say that's one big thing. I'm okay with that. The one thing I will say is the the final Jake Taylor's at bat. It's so good. Because I forgot that. He didn't it a home run. Yeah. I forgot that he bunted. That's I actually I had that for what's age the best. One of the what stage is the best for me is. It was just really smart to do that. And not have them hit the home run. Yeah. And I'm always impressed that I watched that movie that that it's like, oh, they they actually swerved on that one. He doesn't hit a home run does a frigging bunt. Yeah. As this like another side one like, I just love I do love. This movie has really good slow MO. Yeah. And I love the opening slow MO of Willie Mays Hayes in the pajamas. Oh, yeah. That's a good one. Yeah. Looking like like looking a lot like Mahar Sheila. I noticed. That's a good one. It's like a lot like it. Yeah. I like that. But yeah, it's got to be the game. So. Yeah. All right. So what's age the best? I have a bunch of stuff for this the opening credits that just capture how depressing Cleveland as Cleveland's a little less depressing now, but not one hundred percent less depressing day, really really hammered home. There's just a lot of smog and factories spitting out spoke, sad bars and empty streets. It's very well done. So I have that the cast is great. It's really really really well cast Snipes sheen Barringer Corbin Bernsen. Dennis Hays Burt who nobody had ever really heard of till that point the owner played by Margaret Whitton, which became her defining role the manager James Gammon sports movie hall. Famer Chelsea Ross we're gonna get him a little bit as Harris. They just hit and Rene Russo in her first movie, just I would say nine and a half out of ten with casting in this. And they cast it really good. Actual baseball players. Yeah. They actually gave a shit about that which refresh eight. Yeah, they didn't like that didn't bring the movie down. Even even Serano really seemed like a realistic. I could see him in the league for twelve years with a lot of homers and a lot of strikeouts. Yeah. Had like two hundred twelve home runs. Yeah. And and a million strike outs. I think young Charlie Sheen has aged really. Well, just because it's like, oh once upon a time I like that guy. Yeah. Bob euchre as the lifelong local radio hack is has aged just wonderfully because number one exists all over the place. Yeah. Especially NBA league pass. There's there's twenty Bob euchre's Foti route in these different cities. But it's just that was a great character. He's great knit. I don't know what the balances to in real life and him pretending to be like that. What do you think it was like fifty fifty? I feel like a seventy thirty. Ninety ted. He's awesome. We'll get him in a little bit. I like the day to day aspect of a baseball season from the players and fans perspective at that. Even for a short movie, it captured it well kind of Edmund flow of spring training and who's on the team this year. Oh, man. We suck way. Things are coming together. Uh-huh. Something's happening. Like does a nice job in those checkpoints. I'm still in this from Dannon Kelly who wrote about major league couple of years ago for the ringer. He he thought it aged really nicely. Cleveland's pre moneyball strategy moneyball is still fifteen years away of going after guys who were good at one thing. So Hayes for speed Joe boo for power von for philosophy Taylor's defensive prowess. This became a thing. Fifteen years later so way ahead of the way ahead of their time. The Indians it's also it's also just like a really good like often used sports thing where I. In in like, the Mighty Ducks movies. Like, there's like the dude who super fast, but doesn't know how to stop, you know, like, there's always the thing. Like, they're good at one thing. But you have a fatal flaw. Yeah. It's a good way to bring together like a rag tag group of people. Yeah. Ragtag good work James Gammon as the as the manager. Lou Lou Brown. Perfect. There's so there's been a lot written about this movie. There's a lot of like oral histories in anniversary pieces and stuff like that. And one of the recurring themes is that James Gammon extremely fun guy to hang out with last guy at the bar. Yeah. People constantly amazed that he showed up for work. The next day is like one of those guys I love reading about actors like that. But he like the personification in. You're not gonna believe this but him and Charlie Sheen really hit it off. I know it's hard to figure in eighty nine. You're not gonna believe this. But they they met spent a few nights together, but he's just like the booze the booze and cigarettes are just coming off him. Yeah. I mean, I I'm obsessed with him. Like, he feels like the type of dude who just like has a lot of friends who are cops. Right. Like like, it's like the one guy who like hangs out at the bar and the guy you'd ask if you wanted to have somebody killed he would know somebody who can do it. Yeah. I think he, but he's also like I like the first version of his character. But then when the movie turns that corner, and he has that scene where he's like talking about how the team has a lot of potential. Yeah. It's like it's like surprisingly moving. Where he's like he like he really believes in this team. Bob, LA like, I I love that. He kinda tapped into some, you know, some some Ernest vulnerability outside of just being like SCRUFF in everything. Yeah. If I was a consultant on this movie, I probably would have thrown away one of the seven Tom Barringer Rene Russo scenes in added the scene where he's James gammons in the dugout kind of watching a game. And yeah, you kind of feel feel him going over that little hump of actually believe in these guys. 'cause when he says that it's kind of out of nowhere. There's there sixty and sixty one there's no evidence. There's a good team. All we've seen is like mishaps guys running in each other. Like, you know, what we could win the pennant. It's like what? What's the evidence? Where that come from. He's like I saw I saw God catch two straight balls. We're gonna win the we've went to in a row, I think we've got this. So yeah, I would have said that a better another thing that's age the best the it captures some of the fun baseball stuff from the day to day like. You know, like like Eddie Harris the rule bending the Vagit. So on his on his chest. The weird superstitions born out Joe, boo. And you know, the rum and all that the the drama and guys fucking somebody else's wife, and all of it feels very baseball in realistic to me another would sage the best the Yankees villains in one thousand nine hundred nine a little controversial. They hadn't had the best decade the had lost their luster as the evil empire and major league. Just single handedly tried to bring it back, which I really appreciated. Yeah. Does when that when this happens do they have to get the Yankees permission? I think so. Yeah, I think baseball was probably excited that somebody was doing a movie because they have use the uniforms. They gotta do. Yeah. They filmed in a couple of different parks to like you see Fenway at one point. So they definitely like Charlie Sheen strikes out somebody's definitely Fenway park. So they they definitely moved around. And then the other thing Charlie Sheen is a pitcher we talked about earlier. So there's. Neural history that Sports Illustrated about this movie earlier in the decade. And she said, I had a great arm. I was just born with it I played at Santa Monica high. But because the academics shit, they pulled me off the team always on brand Charlie Sheen, and then Barringer said berringer's catching him. He said Charlie was great the first day. He started throwing two being nine of his first ten pitches were on the edge of the strike zone. That's how much control he had Charlie shade. Who knew Charlie Sheen a better athlete than Wesley Snipes? Yeah. I mean who knew so did I miss anything? What else does age the best for you? So I've got to weird woods. But just like I love the world of like managers having like absurd hunches, go, right? I'm upset like there's like he shouldn't have put in Charlie Sheen. Now, I'm just gonna throw it out there. Like just know even within the Yankee game. Yeah. Just that world of just saying I got a hunch like I loved the grizzled old manager hunt is the best. It's like it's like hitting cop movies. It's the same thing. Where the cost like, I got a hunch. She's going to be at that bar. Yeah. I'm like why there's a lot of like. But why do you feel that way? But anyway, I love that. I this movie reminds me that and I would love your opinion on this. Like, I think like worst to first works best in base in baseball. It's the most realistic is the most realistic, but in the NBA, but it also like I feel baseball not being my number. One movie is my favorite is my number one. Movie exports type movie to watch it's your lease. It's not your favorite sport. But it's your favorite sports movie. Yeah. Because I I think stadium shots are more dramatic in amazing in baseball stadiums versus a court or a football field this one especially but also just like I think it holds up in. In what I didn't even realize was just like an era like a like a eight year era of classic baseball movies. Oh, yeah. They're a lot. Like, I was I was literally I didn't even ten year. But yeah from bull Durham field of dreams league of their own sandlot rookie of the year. Angels in the outfield, the national like that's all that's in like eight movies. And I mean, eight years we just like pretty wild. Because I can't imagine to baseball movies coming out and consecutive years right now field of dreams. Yeah. Natural started in eighty four. And then I you could count naked gun actually at eighty six thirty seven because that's kind of like a twenty minute baseball scene. That's really funny. My I think just like baseball magic has aged super well like the baseball magic aspect of. Of a team going worse. I really works in this movie. You know, it's funny as you mentioned that that was the first thing all those movies have a couple of the scenes that are almost like Staples. Where the teams the rag tag teams just not doing well early in. There's always like the pop up or the three guys collide. And the you know the ground or of somebody's face the not top ten music happening in the background strike out. The guy getting thrown out at second base. Like, they hit all these beats. And then when things turn around. There's always the catch where somebody skills the wall. It's I it's almost like mandatory in a baseball film. It's like somebody's got to scale the wall and pull him back. All right. So I'm going to say for what's age the best for me. I'm gonna say Bob euchre because my that was my number one. He's incredible. Because not only is he great in the movie and not enjoy him in nineteen eighty nine when I saw this movie. But now when you see the local radio announcer hacks or the local TV hacks. These lifelong dudes you'd never know if they're sober. They're just they'll do anything to sell the narrative for the good narrative for the team. And it's just hard to separate any of them from Bob euchre. Yeah. His shadow looms over all of them one other one because I have had the opposite for what's of the worst. But the use of the word fuck in this movie is fantastic. We should have put that in our rating is crucial. There's a couple of good, motherfuckers. Oh, yeah. Where did they know nudity other than like in the locker room? But but yeah, there's some really good swearing in this movie. Yeah. That was the reason the reason I was always so obsessed with this movie is like was because this was the sports movie. I wasn't allowed to watch it. It's it's it's a very smart hook in a in an era of lots of little giants. Yeah. And satellite, lots of like movie, lots of sports movies aimed at kids and young teams. Like, this was the one that I could I didn't watch until I went to a sleepover. All right, then I got obsessed with it. What's age the worst, Charlie Sheen? He's aged terribly. Who's who's sage worse, the Charlie Sheen? Nobody, wow, it's just hard to separate all the Charlie Sheen baggage from this. And unfortunately, you almost have to approach it like it's just a completely different human being. Two black guys on the Indians total. They couldn't they couldn't messed around with that couldn't have had like six two black people in the entire state. It is this is one of the way to movies ever made ever. But it sounds like they made this in one thousand nine hundred fifty two were Pleasantville. Age the worst all the euchre imitators in future sports movies. Oh, yeah. Where they were like that character worked with try to have her own version the Bob euchre thing, and it's really never worked ever. This is this is a very unique success story. This hurts Wesley Snipes running. Yeah. Just just lay it on me like. I hate doing this to you. You did it you've done it to me many times. So I just like just go. This is one of the worst things I've done for you. All of Wesley Snipes renting scenes were shown in slow motion to give the impression that he was running faster than they actually was because the director said the dirty secret was widely steps wasn't fast. Oh my God. Yeah. And once I once I did the research before I watched the movie again. It really hurts the movie because I couldn't unseat it. And anytime he ran I was just like, wow was Snipes is in fast mowing on Hayes. He's you see his running style. Like, he's just on fast. Like there's this play on. In baseball history. Billy Hamilton is the fastest guy in the league. He's scored from second on a on a four hundred foot sacrifice fly ball, and he's so fast. And then I watch was steps three hours later who's supposed to be like the Billy Hamilton of this movie. That's like, oh, like your appendages are all moving in different directions. Like, he it's hard to NC. I apologize. Yeah. That's I don't I don't love. It gets worse. David word also said was was not a very skilled baseball player in real life hadn't really played and was so awful at throwing a baseball that they did not include any scenes of him throwing the ball. It was nice. It's just like a nerdy theater. Kid. He might be like like day to day Lewis or somebody. I don't know. Because he's also a bad basketball player like kind of famously they had to teach them how to play basketball, which leads to the question was Wesley Snipes of bad athlete. I was going to do this for unanswerable questions. But I think it's actually answerable we have this director saying they couldn't include scenes of him throwing a baseball. I really set myself up by starting this podcast. Wesley. They had to show off as reading seeds in slow motion to make it seem like he was fast. So there's one scene where they show him stealing home where they show him in full speed. I encourage you to watch that again. 'cause man, let's just say this. He's not flying. He's he's that sipping down the third baseline fun. Fact, it's not shot in slow motion. That's real unfortunately that. Another woods age. The worst this quote from kurban Bernsen Corbin Bernsen. This is also going to really hurt your feelings a couple years after major league I saw Wesley. I said, hey, man, they're gonna make major league too. And he was like you're going to do that. And I thought well how quickly they forgot he'd become Wesley Snipes. That rubbed me the wrong way. Wow. Wow. Tough tough for this types of science. We're going to get through this though. I still love was names. But yeah, yeah. I mean, he just thought he was bigger than major league. And and that's why Omar Epps was cast as Willie Mays Hayes. You could argue might have been better casting since he was actually getting athlete. Yeah. Also like, I think there's a little Nino in Wesley. So I'm not that's impressed yet carbon Berza killed right after the coven. So I think Omar Epps is actually my sports movie hall of fame. I mean, I'm kind of glad it happened. Because that helped out someone I love who is Omar Epps Omar Epps had he's the track star in higher learning. He's the kind of Alvin Kamara type running back in the program. He's Willie Mays Hayes and is in love and basketball where he makes the NBA legendary. I mean to me he's into sports movie, Michael Jordan, and then ten years later, he became Mike Tomlin events. That he actually became the coach of the Steelers. So that edge terribly. All right. We gotta talk about this Jake Taylor Rene Rousso relationship. I've never been less invested in anything. It's it is. For all the what age the worst that? We've done in the rewatch was this is way up there. I have no idea why we're supposed to care about the relationship. It seems thrown in we find out that they broke up because he cheated on her with a stewardess one. And then to she threw a surprise birthday party for him that he didn't show up at and then somebody served him with paternity papers at the party, which cast a pall over the party. So I wanna would she get back together with him at this point. We had to like damaging facts. Yeah. Also, like, they it was just the penetre. It didn't even win the World Series. Right. It's like I feel like I feel like she really jumped the gun. I also just I can't I feel like she was like headed to like a really steady nice life. And I just think it's a man this nice wealthy lawyer at a nice apartment seemed like a nice guy. She could just be a librarian. I'll wait until we do quotes. So my theory and this is Jake Taylor. Huge penis really Hon like really really well endowed, and she just had she couldn't couldn't shake it. So the other part of this what shavers Jay tailored kind of Stocker. Oh, not not not kind of. He like he sees her at the restaurant. And does this contrived calls her from another phone in the restaurant, and then interrupts her date, and is super creepy? He follows her to her place of employment at the library after she gives them the wrong phone number. So she'll never call her again falls sort of the library, anyway, then just shows up at her boyfriend's dinner party falls are this place and just goes into the party. It's a party of eight people just walks in not invited. And then her at the baseball game follows her home in the bullpen car leading to the immortal quote from her. Did you follow me again? Jay, Taylor stalker. What am I invested in this relationship? Why the reason it's so messed up is because it has set a terrible precedent, which is that it should work like that it worked. Yeah. Like this. This opened the door for a generation of movies talking. Yeah. I mean, we had this and say anything to there was this whole generation of movie stockers. Very strange, and I have no idea whether I got back together it which leads me to the other would say, it's the worst the freeze frame, ending great chill seen awesome. Then he sees her in the stands she comes out in the field. He picks her up, and then everybody kind of kind of kind of closes in around them and she holds her up. And then they freeze frame it. Like, she's part of this thing. It's like you. You were barely in the movie. Why are you in this? No one knows her. Yeah. Who are you better like twice? Yes. So what's age the worst for you? Those are some great candidates. Those great candidates. I have a couple one. I'm not. I mean, I don't want to I want to put respect on David s words name because he wrote the sting great. I'm not convinced based off of Sorrento's character that he has ever met a black person as of nineteen eighty nine. The amount of things that are happening. Like, there's like three languages happening. There's like food do like is he Haitian every time he talks there's like this like tribal music that happens in the background in the locker room. And that wasn't there's so much happening. That is just like so not, okay. It is so bad was he Haitian? What was it Dominican? He was he was Haitian, but was saying phrases that were Mexican and they based on on the allu- brothers. That means he's probably thinking Dominican. Yeah. But also, I just like the as much as I love the Serano at bat. The fact that he hit a home run after just being like, you know, what voodoo I'm done with you. I believe in Jesus Christ the movie. And then he gets good at baseball. I'm just like what I don't know. Anti verdoux. Don't do. Yeah. The movie is like is like David s ward has a has a problem with voodoo probably hates New Orleans. So I just haven't like also like. The speech pattern, you talks. There's this one part. He's like, I can no hit curve balls. I'm like is. He a caveman. Like what was going on? Oh. It's a wild. Well, and I feel like did as Hayes Burt was kinda just like fuck this. But like I got I wanna be a star. Yeah. This is this is my road to start him. I'll do whatever it takes. So that's that's my number one. So you think if this movie came out now, there would be a whole Twitter controversy online and hashtag, oh, I was racist and all this stuff right for the first time. I would be like the main person be like this. I also like I'm not the biggest fan of the tagline for home runs being off the reservation. Yeah. The eighties again again, I as an age great. It just didn't age great. You know, like someone being like show me a good sports movie. You know, it's it's a it's a it's a tough one too. You know for that part. To throw out in two thousand nineteen I yeah. Outside of that. So I'm gonna go I vote for ROY. These are some great candidates. I think a lot I think what age would sage the worst is Charlie Sheen who is one of the all-time celebrity train Rix that we have and it's really hard to separate that from this movie but honorable runner ups to the Jake Taylor stocking and Wesley Snipes running. And then all this stuff. You mentioned I think everything's. A nine way tie for first place yet the movie like the movie as a whole still has aged really those last thirty five minutes. Yeah. Let's take a break to talk about black tux. Weddings could have nine an province, but the groom's look shouldn't be one.

What if's only have a couple. They wanted. Diane cannon for the row of Rachel Phelps, the filmmakers, but the studio really wanted a Margaret Whitton so thank candidates, and now she just had Laker games. She's a great. I think she's a great villain in this movement. She's really good. Word said a lot of people don't know this. But Jeremy Piven was in the movie, he was a bench jockey. And all the bits were him. Yelling insults at opposing teams that didn't really work and cut the whole thing. He was I'm sure is disappointed at the time. Damn Jeremy Piven Rene Russo was a model had never acted before. When she got this movie out of that sign of casting. What if I just was shocked by that? I didn't know that other than that they cast really wanna cast Dion waiters. This is tough because the damn waiters. This is basically like it's all supporting roles in this movie. There's no real star than Barringer. I decided to make Charlie Sheen was Snipes Corbin Bernsen all of them are notable for Dion waiters. I think the only acceptable candidates. I think are the for for the limited amount of time there in for the impact, I think are the owner and Bob euchre. So I'll let you pick. I really would in your mind would Haywood count as Dion waiters award. Oh, that's great clue Haywood. Yeah. That's that's my vote. Great P vuckovich is clue. Hey, we'll convince the other acceptable candidate would have been Bob euchre's partner. Who do you like them? Got a lot says weird faces I tried that guy to all right half fast internet research. There's some beauty, sir. Snipes turned down a role and do the right thing in order to start major league real not sure what role. But. Yeah. Maybe it was like Sam Jackson's Gary. I don't know. That is cool. I just found this out. I was stunned by this. Tom Barringer turned down the role of sunny crocodile Miami vice which is really funny because he dresses like he's in Miami. Vice like he he dresses like sending crack it. So I'd feel like he might have regretted it. Yeah. He's like alright. Bought the unifier about the outfit. He's like always wearing white and salmon blazers in light genes. Yeah. In alternate ending on the Wild Thing edition on the DVD's shows a very different way for Rachel Phelps for her arc to end. Lou announces he's resigning Phelps reveals the threaten moved to Miami was merely a ruse to motivate the team, and that they were on the verge of bankruptcy when she had haired of them, and that she felt like he was the right manager to lead the ragtag group or lawn and and disol- worked out. And the audience is hated it. And they were like why why did you make this person? No, good personnel long. Stop it. So they cut the got rid of that we mentioned despite being saying Cleveland, the film was principally shot in Milwaukee much cheaper. They shouted Marquis county stadium. Walkie county stadium is now a little league baseball field called. Hellfire field. So you hellfire ho fire field. So I think that. Good twenty thousand extras in the stands for the Yankee game. Dennis Hays 'but when the team ran on the field with the crowd wearing Dennis as Bert a strong, strong rock of the man admitted to being emotionally overwhelmed by the experience. I get it. Yeah. And Steve Yeager who is a former player technical adviser. He noticed however won't do as he said. That's what it's like a hundred sixty two games a year. He was he was the third base coach he was and he was also berringer's stunt double a catcher. The way that Duke Simpson. The ANC is pitcher was played by Willie Mueller. Who is apparently a major league? I don't remember Chelsea Ross sports movie hall of Famer can you name the other big two movies? He was in you know, I can't. But the first twenty minutes of the movie, I thought it was Billy Bob Thornton. He he that. I can sold her brother. So he was the bad guy in hoosiers. Oh, yeah. And he was Dan Devine and Rudy. He was the Notre Dame coach. Oh my God. He is hot Famer we make the sports movement hall of fame. He's in. So he said he was forty five he pitched in college at southwest, Texas State, and it had been twenty years since he threw a ball. Sheen heard his show there during the during the filming because they were thrown so many fastballs every day and said on the way to work he would stop at the doctors for quarter shots shots and anti inflammatories. This is the movie that vitam really pushed Charlie sheets drug habit over the edge. So Mitch Williams. Remember him the closer? Yeah. He joined the cubs in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine the same year this movie came out, and they started that's how he got the nickname Wild Thing. And that's when he started coming out of the bullpen in the Wrigley field. Organised on the cubs would play Wild Thing and this movie amazingly. And I think it's true unless somebody can prove me wrong created closer entrance music. Ooh. Of that. So the Charlie Sheen the Wild Thing gets borrowed by mitchum's in the cubs. And then becomes a thing and leads to thirty years of closer music. So that's probably the biggest maybe we should put that as the woods age the best. That's sick shrew cultural impact. Yeah. Yeah. I love that. Another bad Wesley Snipes story. Somebody. Apparently he was complaining because they kept shooting him. Sliding. And he said what was wrong with that one? Steve Yeager said he had strawberries from all the sliding he didn't wanna do anymore because it hurt and Steve Yeager said, I know it hurts. I've been doing it for twenty years come on Wesley. I feel like I well, he it's like he got a ego before the movie came out. Yeah. Stuff. Rachel Phelps is ultimate goal was to move Indians to Miami. Made this move in eighty nine eight years later the real life Indians lost to the Florida Marlins based in Miami. That's fucking weird. Yeah. Wait, can I can I can I bring up one quick Wesley thing that I completely forgot. Can you imagine going on a date with Willie Mays Hayes, and he takes you home? There's eighty five thirty black gloves nailed to the wall. What a creepy way to live. Yeah. That's pretty straight. I couldn't stop thinking about just like how that would play out in real life with company over. There was a scene shot with Jake in Lynn wells, the Rene Russo character where they got married that was going to be after the Yankee game that they deleted. Thank thank God. They should have deleted the entire character. Hayes bird said he hit it out of Milwaukee county stadium and that Homer in the game three fifteen feet three hundred and fifteen feet down the line and left. It hit the top of the wall went over. He was stubbed Hayes bird also said, I don't think there was ever a closer cast. We hung out together. We went to bars together we were a team James game. And had these great poker games. Go. Yeah. And here we go. You're gonna love this Charlie Sheen on James Gammon, James Gammon. You wanna talk about an absolute fucking Warlock. This kind of shows up one morning, and he's so hung over that it has the bar still attached to his head. I've never seen a man in this much pain. Trying to make a Cup of coffee. He was an awesome. Tiger blood Warlock should. Gonna be this. But James, given Donna live anywhere. I mean, I mean James gammons one of those dudes that like it's like white Danny Glover like I can't even imagine him under fifty years old. Yeah. Corbin Bernsen on Charlie Sheen. This is all off from the world history. Bet it Charlie was the ringleader. He was a chick magnet. It was the most astonishing thing any of us had ever seen. He was the pied piper of beautiful women. And then words said Charlie had a lot of women flying in and out of Milwaukee. His biggest problem is trying to coordinate the airline schedules. So that these women wouldn't run into each other. And then she'd files that up this it wasn't as bad as on young guns a year earlier, we made that one in Santa Fe, you'd flan Albuquerque drive the Santa fan of two lane highway the girls that were leaving would pass the ones coming in major league was so physically demanding you didn't have a lot of time for that Charlie Sheen. Wow. I not not a surprise. The last ten years of his life has played out. Bernsen actually mistakenly punched Charlie Sheen at the ending. It's a good punt. He hits him, and he apparently had a wealth. It's a really good fun. Punches also unexpected which I love you just like I again, I forgot like, you know, all the people who were rivals come together. And I was like, oh, yeah. They're going to show you got punched. That's great. So the lady who played Roger Doorns wife who is not Jamie Lee Curtis. I think Jamie Lee turned it down last minute. 'cause I thought again, I was like I know that that's not Jamie Lee Curtis. Her name was Stacy Carol to I credits. That's it never acted again. After this movie just decided to raise a family thirteen year old me huge fan of her in that movie. So some sad news martyr Whitney owner. Not no longer with us died in two thousand sixteen. Yeah. It was. I was like oh. But has this whole crazy backstory, she dated Ron Shelton. And who wrote who wrote and directed boulder in nineteen eighty eight. She maintained that she helped write the film when they were dating. She sued him. He denied the claims he said it was patently false. But according to a court document, she received one hundred thousand dollars in two percent of the films that profits to settle her claims martyr Whitten, I believe how weird is that. That's a that's a that is not the story. I expect you to tell. Yeah. So that's it for half ass internet research. Apex mountain? Charlie sheen. Yes. Or is it to Neff, man? I mean, two and a half men was the most successful show of here. Like eight straight years. I don't know. I thought I was I was leaning towards that until I I forget about two and a half men. I gotta be through enough men. It yet. Is it not barrier? Like, I feel like. I mean, this is like the individuals great run. I don't know if it's going to say I was gonna say platoon for Barringer because he did he win. He won that. He went in a Oscar for women to vote it. I don't know if Barringer did a definitely got nominated but platoon allowed him to make movies like this side of it somewhere in there. I don't know if it's definitive I think for Margaret Whitton definitely James game indefinitely. But for the big stars. I I don't think it was a mountain for any of them. It's not Hayes bird because his former is I mean, president Palmer's iconic. Just movie pave the way for President Obama pave the way for Barack Obama via president. Without this movie. There's no Bronco Bubba. The Joey pants were named after Joe Pantaleo for best that guy, we it's James Gammon or Chelsea Russ. I feel like people know who James Gammon is. I don't think people know that Chelsea Russel's name is Chelsea Ross. They just know him as Eddie Harris or the guy from hoosiers or the guy for major league. So he wins that one would this movie been better with Danny trae, oh, St. Bush, Amir, Michael k Williams we needed to make Kate Williams in this movie because he would have been the third black person minute. Yeah. Even if he's in the stands, it's like another black person stands I'm here for that to Saul. Ruben ick. They knew award for for best overacting. I gotta go. You you probably feel differently. I have to go with Roger Dorn fielding grounders at third base. Like he was being shot by snipers with figure out why. With. Why was it? So debilitated to field hard grounders. I've never seen anybody react to them. Like that. Like, I mean, unless you're eight years old like he's in the major league major leagues. He's he's far enough away from the batter's box that it shouldn't be like he's getting shot at my son is eleven years old and plays third base and his good at third base and has never reacted or ground or like that ever. And he's eleven so I don't know. I don't know what you're doing registrar picking nets. We've picked a lot of knits already. I just have to extra ones. Yeah. They mentioned it Rene Russo says at one point in the dinner part of their Jake used to be one of the best catchers in baseball until his knees went do. We really believe Jake Taylor is one of the best catchers in baseball was he like, we're suppose think he was like a Mike Piazza in the early like he'd never really gave off that good of an athlete or baseball. Now. His throwing it wasn't like Tim Robbins, boulder and bad. But it it certainly didn't look. Had a canon either. And I think they stunt double immolate. I don't think he was Terrano on the other hand Surat does Hannah. So yes, Arado he's basically SEO Quique thirty years. The the game winning bunt. I just don't think. Jay Taylor beats it out with his bad news. I'm so even if it took the guy by surprise, I still think he's out. Yeah. He needed like the angels from angels and outfield to fly him to first base, or it should have been the third baseman should have been coming over to the third base bag because Willie Mays Hayes was stealing in that have gone sideways and that should have thrown him off bounce. Do you have any other nitpicks that we haven't already covered I have one big one. Okay. So you in the dinner party scene that a great scene. No. He mentioned that he makes league minimum. Yeah. I type this is actually amazing. I typed in league minimum. And it auto populated nine hundred eighty nine really as in like someone had the same question. Like, what was the league minimum for major league the movie, and what was it sixty eight K o adjusted for inflation eight nine hundred eighty nine. That's one hundred and forty one thousand dollars. I feel like they make it seem like berringer's our minimum wage, right? Busted, he's living with Charlie Sheen, which they never really explained. It's just thrown into one scene. Yeah. I feel like they really make it seem like he is like living like in a halfway house and has no money. But I feel like, you know, he's still a professional baseball player. He's got some money. Also, only nitpick. So I've I've I've to other nitpicks based on this then pick. This guy is such a horn dog that he's like banging stewardesses and getting served with paternity suits at his birthday party. It is now a sexual in his early thirties. That's it. You just gave it gave up sex. We never seem to hook up with anybody. You just loving you. Just love Moby, Dick. How do him and Ricky Vaughn ended up living together? How is that decided? Why would he want to live with this fucking weirdo who just got out of prison this guy? He was allegedly one of the best catchers in baseball. Why doesn't have more money? Why didn't he live? Why didn't you have at least a condo in Cleveland that? Yeah. Myself the financials don't make you needed a roommate. He's probably like a three time. All stars. Like, I need a roommate. Who should I live with? Yeah. Serano or Ricky von his car had like, no hubcaps. And it was like like making like stumbling to the curb. Yeah. It'd make any sense I have another I hesitated. Put this as a nitpick, but I'm putting it on. Anyway, I'd love to know how long it took to actually drive the bullpen car from the stadium to ask. Because those things don't go faster like fifty miles an hour. He got eight hours later. Yeah. Is there like a dedicated sidewalk from the stadium to her house like you on the road? She didn't see where he's just on a road with cars honking behind him. He's going twelve thousand our. Yeah. You're actually that that that is completely. There's no way he makes that party. The the other thing was Tom Barringer supposed to be like eighties hot. I think he was. Okay. Eighties like rugged rugged. Rugged handsome. Okay. Type. Look, I can't remember my other question. I have. But those are those are some solid. Oh, my other picking. It's I guess. So Roger Doorns wave sees him on TV, leaving the hotel with a girl. He somehow doesn't realize he's on TV. Even though there's a camera crew within announcer. Like, he's the worst adulterer probably of all time has no idea he's being filmed or anything. The wife decides to get revenge and she's gonna sleep with Charlie Sheen. How does she find Charlie Sheen? Did he have he was hanging out with? And if he did have a bar that everybody knew hung out with wouldn't he be surrounded by girls already by himself in this empty bar. He's like a famous guy in the Indians. They're about to be a playoff game. They really make Cleveland seem like it's a town of forty nine hundred. Yeah. Yeah. It's like, oh, there's there's only one bar. Yeah. It. He makes it just that doesn't make any sense. But I one other nitpick Ben Lindbergh actually wrote about this on the ringer today. This is a sports movie staple for baseball movies where they always screw up the lineup. They think we're never gonna notice. But they don't realize we going to watch this seven hundred times. So Serano hits a Homer with two outs in the seventh inning. And the way the order works. The top of the order is Hayes Jake Taylor for some reason Betty second Roger during third and Sorrento fourth surroundings Homer comes to out. So the third out is conceivably made by the number five hitter than in the eighth inning. You figure they go out one two three in the eighth and Tomlinson should lead off the ninth. Yeah. Because he's a stencil with the ninth hitter. Because Hayes comes up after him as been limber points out Tomlinson comes up with one out in the ninth. So there's five outs. But there's only four spots between Serano and Thomason. So. So either the Indians batted out of order or they used a tenth hitter or they just completely screwed this up or I am not sure what really happened on this one. But again, a baseball movie staple of batting out of order. And hoping that we never notice. All right. Best quote. Oh my God. This guy is dead cross him off. Then obviously, it's time for some changes. This guy's years. Jed cross him off them heads for bets. Keep war. Hey gopher. Forbath? Yeah. Which handicapped keep that's wall. Just a bit outside Vaughn into the lineup in his first offering. Josh the bit outside. He tried to corner missed. Has your wife and my kids up your butts? Yo, boo. Fuck you Joe, boo. I do it myself. And then the guy third his own son in a father son game. What other quotes do you have? Jake Taylor in the library when he's trying to convince her that he likes books. Yeah. He goes. I'll check it out. Right now is this the whale section still sore? I never read Moby, Dick. You never read anything. I asked you to check it out. Now is this the whale section? I'll bet what's his name at the restaurant. Read it needs. Needs about Moby. Dick kills me. I don't know. There's there's also. Willie Mays Hayes going we should have gotten the live chicken. Yeah. Yeah. When they give him the KFC chicken. I really like I don't know why. But I really like when Willie Mays Hayes gets on base. The first time just goes excuse me. Gotta take my first steps to the hall of fame. It made me think about like that's like that's like what I thought in my head like every time I opened my laptop and like twenty eleven I'm like. The go-to the hall of fame. And then Finally, I just really like during the Wild Thing when the owners like I hate this fucking song. Yeah. That was good. That's a good quote. What's your favorite of those? I mean, I think the the I guess there's one thing left to do when the whole fucking thing. I think that's just like icon a quote. Well, then I guess there's only one thing left to do. What's that? When the whole fucking thing. Just a bit outside has been the quo yet has been bastardized the most and actually don't like it now. Because the the announcers all think they're being funny when they say it ruined it for you hit everyone it for me. No one's euchre known secret to stop being Bob euchre. It's not happening. I really love hats for bats keep that worm funding. But my favorite is. Fuck you Joe, boo. I'd do it myself. She stopped. Stick up for you. Know help me now. I'd do it myself. By the way. I highly encourage anybody to use that as their high school yearbook quote. Yeah. Some teacher will love it. They'll be like, okay. I like that is that are they doing hey school year, but could their hand in the mid right now. Right to fuck you Joe, boo. I do it by south great. That'd be big win bet. It'd be impressed category. Could this be remade? As a ten episode. Netflix show. Yes. Please had a cow. This happen. Yeah. Can we do it? I would I would have hundred percent ticket. I would love it. So the news comes out the remaking major league. And it's now going to be a thirteen episode Netflix series. What's your reaction? I'm immediately like who is Charlie Sheen whose Wild Thing who's going to be Lou Brown. Who's the owner? I'm in just make it happen. Maybe don't pick. I wouldn't do Cleveland. This time though, I'd pick another city. I'd pick awards. I do like the Miami Marlins or something. Yeah. Although I guess they've won a couple World Series. What's like what? Seattle the Mariners. Yeah. Yeah. Are they like what's the worst? Will the Mariners have never won. Yeah. That's true. But they were on the teams left. Yeah. I'm in whoever decides these things go make major league that please do that probably unanswerable questions, we've covered everything except I have to. So they say door Roger Dorn stats in the last game that he to seventy one eighty six RBI. They also say in that game Willie Mays. Hayes was hitting two ninety one which I was shocked by. Yeah. Unanswered questions. How many steals did Willie Mays? Hayes have that season. I would say somewhere between sixty to seventy right. So so he didn't get it. What do you mean? What was his plan to get one hundred? I don't think you got a hundred. I think they would have said it. And again, I'm gonna say like seventy range, what was Sarah knows ks to home run ratio. Yeah. Thirty two homers and like two hundred twenty ks. Yeah, he like never hit a double. Now. You know, only diggers Eddie Harris wins say maybe like sixteen and ten type season for Eddie. They if they won ninety to somebody had to win games. And I think Charlie Sheen around the same probably like fifteen or eleven fifteen and ten I dunno. I dunno. I needed more stats in the final game. I really enjoyed the stats. I was like, wow. Roger Dorn has eighty six Rb ads. Wow. Shopped we covered this event closer music, and then my final answer will question because this movie came out the same year or a year earlier than our year later than bull Durham. Would bull Durham been better off if Charlie Sheen was nuclear Roche. Ooh. Yeah. Because I'm saying, yes. Yes. Sacrifice Charlie from this movie to make bolder and better, you think that there's a you can sub in someone for Charlie and still make major league work. I'm saying if he's in the nuclear show boulder and becomes the best movie of all time. Okay. Better than citizen Kane. The godfather everything I want both movies to continue to so you like both movies. Okay. But but what I will say is I think it's easier to substitute Charlie Sheen. Because like like you said earlier like the small amount of time that he's actually in the movie. Yeah. You can you can put someone it'd be like, you know, you got eight scenes. Maybe mealy west of as step saying, I don't know. He might be too. Sure. Yeah. I don't know. You're right. We we probably do lose with major league. I think about this some more between those brothers between Estevez sheen like icon, IQ sports siblings. 'cause you know, I love Mighty Ducks to more than anything. But we have this new Twitter feed for the rewatch Ables. Maybe we'll do a poll if you had to do it over again, would you have rather had Charlie Sheen in boulder, and then major league I'd be with responses are all right who won the movie. I say Snipes. Wow. Snipes? I mean, you've told me things that have just die ruined this movie for me like I'll never see it again. But I wrote down or all of the nonsense that that Snipes when the movie, but. You know, I'm I'm staying there. Okay. I'm not wavering. I can't believe I'm saying it, but I'm going with Charlie Sheen. That's on you. That's I just think I love Wild Thing. I love that character his PR this movie for the Mana time. He's actually in the movie per what his stats are is off the charts every scene he's in his lights out. I enjoy every single moment that he has in this movie. He's the most realistic baseball player. He's way up there in any conversation. He's with Coster and all these other guys. And and I think him walking in in the final game, and then striking out clue Haywood is one of the better sports movies ever. Yes. So I'm going with them. And also loved his quotes about James Gammon. And I want to know more about James game and insurance on the set and they eighty eight what exactly happened. I could read a whole oral history about the poker games that James came into this hotel room. What one my my one reason I love sheen is I think it's like an iconic fashion role. Yeah. Like between the glasses the earrings the haircut and most important for me the sleeveless tuxedo from the commercial. It's like it's pretty it's it's pretty iconic. So like for that. I do the French restaurant outfit is pretty great. He's everything is in. It's hard for me to believe that they were making this movie and just refusing to realize. Is that him and snipe should have been more sense as as they filmed the seventeen with Tom Barringer Rene Russo. Altered to another house. Cool. Cool. All right. So we cut the scene where where he's waiting outside her house at four in the morning in his car. All right. Remember bram? We did it man. We we first rewatch Ables together. This is wonderful. I'm pumped this was this was very this is very fun. And even though you. Pretty much ruined Wesley Snipes like more than tax evasion. Did for me. I'm I'm very happy to do that and happy anniversary to happy thirtieth anniversary. Thank you. So one of the classic side. Thanks for coming on.

Really Hurt Business

"Yes sir we promised to mitch mama mama mitch mama mama matter ma. Ma ma ma ma. Oh oh oh oh. Oh you sweet sweet. Peter strata chicken. It was reported with its professional wrestling wrestler. Ladies and gentlemen welcomes the world's number one sports and recreation podcast cheap eat. I am one time in future. Twenty four seven champion. Peter rosenberg And i would like to bring in all the way from the city of brotherly shove stack. I greg i. She forgot future hall of famer. But this this time they get this time to build the resume in a what you're right i shouldn't i shouldn't have forgotten it though it's wrong. Definite audits all of famer and originally from philadelphia pennsylvania of bucks bucks county to be exact but he's now officially being hailed as from differ. Land ranch zero ryan to summer summer residents. It's been so many weeks since you've heard from mayor you did. You miss me on a of one to manage on a scale of repub damage. How much did you miss me. Well it depends. Are you talking to the audience. Who doesn't hear from you or are you talking to me. Who hears from constantly and you never get off the phone. wow. I don't think. I think you're complaining. I think you're subliminally complaining about my phone habits with you. Have i brought this to the podcast yet. And i don't think so. Now oh so the audience that gp a universe should know dipper pristine doesn't get off the phone. He never gets off the phone he. He's incapable of hanging up the phone. Once you start wrapping up. It's like the beginning of a process the length of which you have no idea of until it's over so when you say all right well i gotta go. He sees that as like the ten minute warning. I'd say it's sort of like the the i would like an a to being at the passover seder and you know you you say to your wife or your kid okay. We're going to start to say goodbye to every starting to say goodbye. My mother used to say that to me. Start to say your goodbyes. Now we're going to leave in like ten minutes so you start kissing everyone okay. Oh dinner was great. Oh you know. We're tired so i like in my conversations to a loved one so i'm speaking to a loved one and i say raffle. It can't always wrap up on your terms even though you're the client and you're on the i work for you which i know that i still need to like you know there's needs to be some familial aspect to it by the way you're much that that makes sense because you're much worse during family and friends hours during the workday. If i say. I have to go. I might get off the phone within a minute but if it's after hours we're just chatting in its friend. Time we for the family minute. Take the friends and family minutes. He's got a limited. He knows that so. He has limited minutes during the day. He has limited time at night so he goes. When i say i went on like all right. Well i'll give you a call tomorrow. He sees that as when. remember when. You're a kid you were sitting at dinner. Your family went to a friend's house and the parents would. I go well. The kids have school tomorrow. As the beginning the warm up the preamble to ending the conversation to say goodbye the start to say good bye should feel flattered. I rush people off the phone galore. My whole life is rushing. People off the phone. You i i enjoyed talking to i care about you i care about you too. I'm i'm grateful that it's that it's like this so we have a lot to get to apologize for last week. Apologize apologies for the weird sound this week. Mercury in retrograde. I don't know but we have a lot to talk about. So i know the true packer heads. Just wanna get s you. What's happening outside the ring hogan hulk hogan titus o'neil were announced as the host for this year's edition of wrestlemainia and i know i for one was baffled by the decision. Okay baffled baffled why it. It's it's an odd pairing without even stating the obvious. It's just an odd pairing hogan titus. O neil and i'm wondering why now was the time to to make that decision to pull back on. Tv and back at the forefront. Well he wasn't on tv though yesterday was he. No he will be. He's a full on host the wrestlemainia. So he's gonna get he's gonna worry and that's another. That's another subject related to this subject. But i'll just say this. I thought it was weird. And then it's now become more clear and whether you think it's stupid or not that's that's totally fair but it's definitely because they both are from tampa and Tightest it's rumored is going to get the warrior award so you know. They spend a lot of titus. Dow is kind of like more ambassador than anything and so since he's the he's this ambassador. Does all this wonderful community stuff i get. Why am and also remember titus hosted last year basically with gronk. Yeah he he. Sort of filled in for grop gronk was announced as the host. And then you know the twenty four seven championship debacle involving him. He ended up having to relinquish hosting duties. A little bit and titusville did Did a great job kiss me. From after the The johnson white matched went. Viral is still still thing. So what i'm saying is i. I'm not believe me. I am not here to tell people to like this or think that it's worth getting excited about. But i will just say i do understand the logic whether you think it's stupid or not. How about that. Let me tell you what i think about titus. O'neil can use a. He's a great guy confirmed and by the way his kids are made to. They're great they're great guys in training. They're learning from the best. He's he's the very he's the very definition of a great guy so cigarettes you guys know you know everything that goes with hogan we've talked about a gazillion times. My biggest concern in this specific moment. Is i key just the hosting part. It does not come natural. Well here's here's that's the that is a major concern. Because even the last few times they put him on the mike it hasn't it that is what they really worry about. It hasn't gone well. I just wish that they could use hogan in any other situation other than how they use them. Now i agree. Let me tell you. Somethin' in like the same way that he does each. I'll i'll take anything else. If they will turn out on a on a on a on a desk with wheel at a with a dining room table and we watch them eat spaghetti and meatballs. It would be more interesting than him saying well when this warns oil the both doing the same thing trying plus the mania dip. It didn't work are your using in open his mail. I you want to see him. Have a big bowl of pasta mania brother. That's what your take anything. I'll take eating. i'll take i know. Here's the thing i've given you guys chapter and verse on my theories about how hogan doesn't work because he hasn't found a a real life character to play so all he has is hulkamania and it seems ridiculous. Bushing seventy so. But i wish they were capable of using him in like an understated way instead of cutting promos backstage like he was you know for example if he was capable of doing normal wrestling things. I might have found it. More interesting of. He was managing lacey evans against charlotte. Ben rick flair a going against his daughter whose story line had been built with about them. Loving each other for the last seven years on the truth is he. He doesn't need to be doing anything. Okay we don't need him anymore outlook. I wasn't the biggest hole cogan fan when i was younger. But i you know. I i what are you now on. He's on my mount rushmore. What i'd like to see him do is like in duct. Eric bischoff into the hall of fame in duct. Somebody into the hall of fame do speeches that are meaningful you know host something on the network you know whatever but i the idea of like integrating him into promos and making it sound ridiculous and rehearsed and scripting every word he says and he's fumbling mumbling and it never it never comes out correctly it just like it's ruining the legacy besides all the other stuff you know like it ruining legacy see and other and i feel that way about other legends to it over scripting legends just ruins the whole mystique of of what they used to be so anyways so we have that they will be hosting. That's what's how we've spent way too much time talking about this already and they'll be hosting wrestlemainia live on peacock which made news in waves. Because apparently they've been editing what they deemed to be offensive content from the network. Which it's i gotta be honest. I feel like they opened a can of worms that they didn't need to ingest editing. Anything i this is all say i agree with s g g You guys i hope. Our audience knows at this point that i take issues of of saying and doing the right things and being sensitive very seriously i not like i'm not some anticancer culture warrior or anything like that. You cannot rewrite history it happened. We all enjoyed content in our past that. If it was made today you'd go. What the hell was that. We all all of us have all of us enjoy content like that and i don't think anyone gets upset about content. That's thirty five years old. I just i. I agree with s g g like i wish they'd just agreed to move it over as is because put a bumper on disney disney and their day. They produced some content. That you know they're not necessarily proud of today and then it's all on disney plus with just the bumper in the front that says listen. This was mildly offensive back in the day. It's wildly offensive. Now we apologize but we're going to present it as if they just do that in front of all the content but now they feel like they put themselves in a position where people are going to ask. Where's the line gets to like attitude era stuff like. That's what i'm saying. The attitude era will become impossible and and this is a business where people used to. When you're trying to have bad guys bad guys say bad things or not. They weren't always supposed to be appropriate. And i don't know who the people are. Who would have really been mad about this. But anyways i in turn has to edit easy w yeah exactly crazy and i'm i'm sitting here watching wrestlemainia five on peacock right now. Definitely missing all the old prime times and challenges and superstars which i usually watch and right. Now i'm basically just watching old wrestlemanias because it's mania season but after mania season. I'm need my projects back. I love i love the demolition. Promo wrestlemanias five. It's one of the great from us. I can't wait to hear them. Scream nonsensical things. And what match are you at. I watched wrestlemainia five In the background the other day it's one of the great events i mean i league. It's so colorful blue blazer. Mr perfect perfect looks perfect. He's in he's in the best physical condition that was really peak. Perfect at that point it was it was lou first-quarter eighty nine. And he's another one. Who's like body and and physicality deteriorated very quickly. There was a there was a point in mid nineteen ninety late. Nineteen ninety were perfect. Like took a turn like like got a gut and cut his hair a little bit and he talked up. Berkeley will be always looked really good now right so the he did but there was. There was a time. There was a moment when he did. Not you know when it turned in like early. Ninety one where he slides started getting a little chunkier. You're saying he didn't have a great body now but there isn't again it's it's not like the physical deterioration of of hercules which Which if you if you're watching every wrestlemainia in order the the the hercules from nineteen eighty nine to the hercules from nineteen. Ninety do is quite a different This this is like sort of the end of p kirke lease at five. yeah By the time and he still looks great gets it gets rough after that. I just watched four over the course of several days. Also something else. And i know. We're talking about a million things but it's sort is an underrated wrestlemainia to all. It's one of the greatest. That's that's my hot. Take i love for four is right. it's very high so l. Level for is bbn be and also one of the things that of course is gonna is driving. Dip crazy and driving. Many people crazy is the use of the way. Celebrities are being used this year. Right in wrestlemainia four they trot out vanna white and bob euchre euchre. Who don't get me wrong at the time in in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven eight bomb euchre. Was you know. He was a star when he was but he wasn't He was a good mainstream star. But you can get someone that's his equivalent it wouldn't be. I'm just saying that he made sense. He was interested in it. He knew how to play along he. It just worked vanna white. They didn't try to get her to do a million things it just was. It was a lot of. It was a lot more effortless. The attempts to be a part of mainstream conversation to. Let's let's not forget in. He was on mr belvedere so like he had or comedic chops to even beyond being a a sports announcer and have like those real sports connection. And he he was euchre was a great. I mean he is. He still doing commentary by the way. But let's let's just let me just say something about that back. Then when the celebrity was at wrestlemainia they were treated by by mean gene by jesse by guerrilla as equals in the broadcast at the time. Yup we're like treated as part of the show. Not this in djelic figure that is other worldly that they are lucky to have integrated into their product. You know what i'm talking about. Obviously as how they treat them now back then it was like bob uber's here like we don't even need you here bob euchre. You're lucky to be here. You're lucky to be part of wrestlemainia. That's how it felt when bob euchre was at mania. That's how it felt. When you know you had robert goulet at wrestlemainia six or Not robert goulet who sang. It wasn't the bulletin it was. It was robert goulet. Robert goulet like that was like a perfect vignette where like the bolsheviks were like annoyed with robert. Goulet like you. Don't see stuff like that anymore. But now we know auto you put them. The celebrities are integrated. they're literally put on a pedestal. Other worldly figures coming from outer space. That's the celebrity culture now though. 'cause like you're talking about the difference between performers. 'cause like like robert goulet and bob yuka like even some of the singers and ali who was a professional wrestling fan growing up like when they get in the world wrestling they ready to perform. They're ready to be on even like mike tyson like he's game to do anything because he loves wrestling versus like a celebrity who you're bringing in for popularity purposes who they are not. They take themselves too seriously celebrities now in general tech themselves and their branded then like a celebrity back in the day. Who will be down to be part of the act and just entertain. I agree with that as she but it also speak to a bigger problem that the wwe by the time it was the attitude era. It was pop culture. You didn't need other people to make you part of pop culture. You were pop culture and they wanted to be associated with you now. It's like it's like we don't believe that we're cool. And we're asking these people for a cosigns. You don't need their cosign. Make an awesome product that people think is cool and be part of it every will want it to be. Dx everyone wanted to be steve. Boston's you know what i'm saying. Now it's now it's the marks. It's the it's the it's the diamond in the rough mark celebrities who are embraced and wanna be part of it. It's not the. I'm a celebrity and like we love you to be a part of this because like you know what i'm saying like but doesn't bad bunny sort of fly in the face of what we're talking about right now about how celebrities. Don't respect wrestling enough. Because like he's first of all he's fully into entertaining like you can tell. He respects the craft of what he's there dude. He's not going to be like bret hart or anything like that. But for what he's there to do he's consistently knocked it out the park every week. He's a it out of the park. Yeah i think so. I think he really is always let me. Take the only interrupt but the only thing. I've liked that. He's done so far. I don't mind the bad bunny thing again. I've said this on the pot before. I'm not like i him as mark like we probably love really just as much as he does and i love that but the only really like solid thing he's done was this week when he punched him the face facing but look like a real punch not true not true that that cross body off the top rope at rumble all right fine valuable data and this was in a week once that was the week when snoop dogg showed us just how difficult it is to jump off the top rope not credible. Bad bunny has been fine and he's done a good job but to dips point though they do constantly treat him he does get like. It's just a bit much that's all it's like okay. He's here now. He's part of the story. He's he's basically a wrestler leading up to wrestlemainia but it never had. I just don't understand the obsession with like like you're talking about this the other day. I don't understand the obsession with having to constantly and this they do this with every storyline. Now that's all the writing is just explaining to you what happened previously or what explaining explaining and explaining. It's all explaining but you know like the idea that week after week after week. We have to know that he was nominated for a grammy. And then he has this many spotify listeners. And he's a good. I mean it's so crazy already. It's like enough is enough. He's been on television for six months like we. We don't need to be reminded every moment of his accolades as a human being. They do with randy orton. Just eckstein unite intercontinental champion. He's at the time. Universal champion won the royal rumble. Ten times he wanted to beat the undertaker. This one hundred th you know. It's the same thing they do but like with the celebrities it just sound it just you can't. You're not anything you're not doing. Here is the issue with doing that so much. If you're if you're a bad bunny fan you don't need to know all of that stuff and if you're not a bad bunny fan you don't care right so just let it be. That's he's doing a good job like he's doing a good job he's he's getting more comfortable like yeah. He speaks spanish most of the time. But he's still seems comfortable and it doesn't seem phony. It doesn't really. I don't hate it and his wrestling stuff is pretty good so i got no issue with it but it's just a point. I do agree com. Just calm down were cool. Wrestling is awesome. You don't need to prove it to everyone all the time. And now it's the jake paul thing or whatever his name is i think that's that's exactly it was just think how celebrity culture is now. It's just like when a celebrity comes in. They expect to get the nice dress soon with the with the ball. Full just read eminem zoo and set pellegrino. But they're not. They're not but as she actually. They're not dictating. Every time i talk you need to say that. I'm a worldwide recording sensation. They're not required. That's dips point. That is what they do with everyone. These days i think explain everything because they know who their audiences though too because when when bad bunny started pop up a lot of a lot of people in the audience was just like you know who is this guy. Why do i care blah blah blah. And i think those like you know who bad bundy is. An in depth knows in. I know because we tie them. But then the people who don't know him and still don't care about that stuff it's sorta like they're just define it to the people of like this is not just a random. Nobody off the street like this. Is somebody worthy of autom- right but okay but to my point. Let me switch gears for two seconds with the explicit explanation thing. You'd like this week with fiend situation. Now there's nothing. I care about more. I love the fiend. I love the new. The new burnt gimmick. I love the whole. It's what i'm most excited to see every week on television in wrestling. Okay but this week you lost me. Alexa bliss came out. They did a promo with alexa bliss last night instead of her being like bizarre and like doing something freaky okay to further the storyline. She explained to us how randy orton feels about. The theme randy orton thinks. He's safe for the past few weeks. Randy orton been really scared. It was insane. Randy orton thought was dead. But now the fiend has arisen like it's like now she went from doing some crazy stuff backstage and throwing fireballs to direct address at the people who like need an explanation as to the storyline. It they broke. it's done. yeah it's crazy and of course like that. That's that's part of my problem. Where wrestling. But i mean it is what it is because when it comes down to like wrestlemanias season. That's when they start. They're not talking to us anymore right now. Like talking to the people who are just like randomly tuning in yes and and that that is that hurts me a little bit because it's like i'm here all year and and by the way year you talk it just hurts the presentation it but but guys because it's also unnecessary because the ratings are show in those people aren't here it's just us. It's just right now so f you did what else you know. Who's not there anymore. Under the rumors are true. He requested his release and he got it the night of the pay per view. He's gone may lead. A low is no more yup. I met him very. I got me on. I'm very upset about it. I think he was great. I think you guys know how i feel about andrade fan. He's incredible wrestler. So it's there's there's no way out of it is it is a. It is a huge failure and disappointment that this is how things played out with him. It was just kinda know around yeah usually. wwe loses somebody. Whether they'd be released or they ask for their release they quit. I'm just mostly unaffected. Dips at it though. This one hurts. Discuss andrade is An incredible talent l. Gonna say a generational talent. Tom will tell on that one. But i really did like him a lot and i thought he had a high ceiling. Wwe so just to see him go out. This way is is maddening. he's not someone that dumb. I was looking to be gone. I mean there i could. I could list ten others. Who i think are not. You know doesn't don't need any. Tv time they get to them for still having a job. But you know. Andre andrade is an excellent performer in ring performer. And it's a shame. What else way about next thing. I by the way. I love the music. So yes music samantha anthem anthem top. You got this generation. And then w announced some hall of fame inductees since last time we spoke to you guys There was announced worthy. There was william shatner announced the celebrity wing of course The great khali was announced. I don't get an rob van. Dam was announced. And it will be joining eric bischoff and me holly in the twenty twenty on. Wwe hall of fame class. Came the great khali robbins. And william shatner rips apart or what. He wanted to congratulations to them. Yeah the no i. I don't think we have enough time. There's other things to talk about. It's i mean he's coming. Congratulations to you others. Others say this. I say my my uncle jeff who is a dentist in arizona. He's guy next year. I think it might be time for uncle. Jeff to be You know what. I can agree with you. More eastern great dentist. the holy was made. That is true. Listen we can't buy the hall of fame until after he gets okay. We want the bar to be at the highest level. When he gets in. And it's all downhill i already. I already should be in overweight gentler. I'm waiting for to get inducted. That's going to be easily book The boogeyman night neck boogie. Man's the last one. They have left that they have a relationship with an all of fame. Batista is not going in this year. He but he's in. He'll go in another year that he can do. Go in been pulled from last year's hall of fame class a movie i and conflict. Yeah he oughta be going in. So yes dave can go in together and then that's it. Shut it down. A great khali was a fun performer. At live shows off the crowd. He was definitely a spectacle but he is one of the worst wrestlers. I i don't know everything about the craft of wrestling but when it comes to just what it looked like it was rough bef- within i'm just so curious to know how beloved he was an india. You know what. I mean. Because i'm like that i feel like that is playing a huge part in it and just me being here. I don't know if i've got the full effect. The like the full feel of of of of what great khali did around the world. You know what i mean. I don't know. Maybe maybe i'm over thinking to let me let me use this moment to do two things as we get into this week's tv number one. I wanna say shoutout to the guys at while a mania they released the wally mania like gear. That they're doing this year with footlocker. It's tremendous explain.

Wwe thin they get very very high on one person in the faction and in my opinion lose sight of the fact that the faction is what made that person seems so cool Counted the new day dodge. This bullet well all right. I have. I have re surprising. Take on this. I think you guys know what it is. No i don't know. I chatted it may i may i give you my. We have the looking the other law very succinct. It's something that is an angle occurred on television. Something happen there was something going on. It was something. I'm not saying it was done well. It was done at the right time it was. I am not telling you. I'm happy about it. But at the end of the day it was something so you are correct about that. The problem is i believe the something that it was will be over by next week and that will be that and that was the hurt business. And that's that and that and that's not someone now if it turns into a feud between mvp and lashley for the title leading into the next. Pay per view if bobby windsor wrestlemainia whatever. I'm going to be p. Even walk though like he can do whatever he wants you to garrigue. What wh what. What do you mean a feud between mvm lashley. Let break them up to. I don't know actually does it. Need is absolutely not okay. Yeah well that's not that's going to happen. I think it's very clear from the second. Lashley won the title and the only person in the ring with him was mvp. It's very clear that they see the value in. Mvp but nobody else which is a shame because just as a first of all this has happened right after. They broke retribution too. So it's like the two two factions that yeah people excited about on raw last year. They know they held it down through the pandemic stugotz. We're still in the pandemic but definitely like the early days of covid and then one of them emerges to be the hottest thing you have not named roman reigns and you just throw it all away like the money. That's just sitting on the table like the hurt business. Deserved the live crowd treatment. They deserve to see what it would feel like to hear their music hit and then have the crowd do what they will with them. Whether that's boo or cheer just to get that reaction. Because i think that would have been something. But but man. This is so premature. This break-up i agree. I agree with of course i agree with that. It's it i. I totally agree. I would have been really curious to see how people reacted in. Oh maybe it's not too late that they could bring them back together But i just think they were together. Lashley was more made. Everyone was made better by the hurt business and while it was something for one night. I just think that's gonna be it and that's that and that they deserve that. I wanted them to add people to it. I thought the hurt business should've kept growing. And i just don't understand why they don't think that lashley could have still been lashley while keeping the hurt business together and i will never understand now. We obviously know you know. That's why the titles were taken off of them. The titles don't need to be a part of the aj oma story at all like they wanna fight the new day without titles cares. I know differ stable. Appreciate this more than anyone. No one cares that. Aj hasn't been attacked champion. Yeah no one cares. Obviously is the bill and guess what they did nothing now. It's like the grand slam champion thing. Means they used to be the major thing. I remember. I remember when brett was the only two-time triple crown winner and then strong was the first grand slam. And then now. It's like if you're at the top of the car you've been a grand slam champions. That's just what it is. Wow i can't believe you're finally admitting to something like this. This is truly a breakthrough for u. s. She g. This is a this is a moment this is. This is something wait. What's this moment. this is what's the moment. You are admitting. Chew eight inherent character. Your in you are admitting to an inherent problem with. Wwe storytelling for the first time. I'll do that all the time. I do a long time now. He's in denial now adults who he really is all the time to the untrained ear trades. You mean the talk more than anyone. But i do that all the time. Yeah trade here. It's not a thing that you have to read between the lines. You have to be sitting with him. You have to be named crystal and be sitting with him in the middle of an episode of bachelor lawson paradise and that the only way that you could discern it. But i were on the same page. This is it's wack and i think it's gonna hurt lashley. I think it's going to make the characters You know a stale. And i think that my guesses vince. Vince mcmahon is probably in love with lashley right now it seems pretty clear and he is the ultimate. Vince mcmahon guy in terms of his style. We've known that on some level. Vince mcmahon has always loved lashley. 'cause think about the part that he played in the battle of the billionaires at a very early in his career right like he was involved in the main event Essentially of that wrestlemainia. Our main event jas With umaga he's always been into him and now he's over so i think he's just going to be really excited about lashley and his power and his dominance and don't get me wrong. That stuff is all great and it's all obviously the biggest part of lashley but what was. The difference was lashley better now than every other time in his career. It was the hurt business. And now that's gone. Yeah knives lake. Yeah and it's the same mistake they made with lashley. Already with lashley and leo. You know what i mean leo. Russian lashley was that was a great pairing and then they separated them. It feels like too soon lashley recovers. He's paid with the hurt business he's even hotter and and you break that up. I this yeah this one. This one suffer me to understand. I'll tell you something. I like this week. Though that may go against the grain of how a lot of people feel I am very happy. That edge is back to bad guy edge. I was always a better bagger. This is the second he did. He got into edge mode and started talking the way edge talks and pushing his hair back and being bad guy. You just remember how great he is. And i wonder even for dip. Who wasn't that excited about edge and you kind of if you're being honest you were not you. Were around for the early edge. You weren't super dialed in when he was the absolute top of the card. So don't you agree like when you saw him turn into this version. Didn't you think he instantly got more interesting. Yes but to me my favorite edge will always be edge with the blood all over him edge with gang grill and the bruce is my edge but this of this modern edge. I'm i'm happy with this modern f. I mean he looks. His face is aging for shore. And he looks kish he is wrinkled. He has crow's-feet like he looks like when he when he when he expresses himself as facial expressions. he looks. he'll ish so. I'm glad that they've leaned into this. And it was probably the right thing to do. I you know it's hard for me to get excited about edge. Because i'm just not one of my guys but if it had to be this edge if it had to be edge i'm happy at this edge also. I'm not as upset as some people are about the the triple threat. I wasn't superstock about edge and roman for whatever reason Edge now gets to work with daniel bryan and with roman and in all likelihood will i don't see lashley losing wrestlemainia now see the title change happening as part of the triple threat with out. Roman taking a pin. I think edge. I think edge ends up beating daniel bryan and winning the pending daniel bryan of idle. You said you thought daniel bryan was going to be back into my mind. Okay i agree. I think edge will edge edge and bobby come away with the two big wins at at at at the show shows which i'll be a hundred thousand percent hundred hundred i and my only concern. There is my only concern about edge scoring a pin in an underhanded way and being he'll edge my only concern is i do not want this to diminish the heel of roman. I do not want roman coming out of mania starting to lean back into the old roman and then the crowd never gets to see this room. Who fog on though to lean back. I hope so. I hope we get this all the way Up until roman versus seth at next year's wrestlemania. Yeah 'cause because people got to remember romance all jay. His cousin that he grew up with probably set his first words to in life will end your life in the military. He's too. It's hard to come back from that. He lost them evil role in full effect. But i'm hoping that that's walks wrestlemania with the championship. Though we'll see they have a couple more weeks to build it is. What do you guys say. What do you say to my take about wrestlemainia as we sit here less than two weeks away from the showcase of the immortals the show of shows of the greatest spectacle and entertainment What do you say to my theory that if you were to look at this card on paper just the matches i think you go. That's a pretty good wrestlemainia us missing the big old school part-timers name the the undertaker's the cena's it's missing matt and i do think that hurts by and large. I think this is a good looking card. In spite of the fact that the way we've gotten there has not been pretty. Yeah i think so too especially when you look at the top of the car and like the the matches that we're gonna we're gonna get oscar. And rhea ripley for the women's championship. We got bianca bell. Sasha banks for the smackdown miss championship the triple threat match that. We just talked about. Between which. I think i don't know why. Wwe is important as yet but these are three men who their careers were essentially over at one point. Roman with his Leukemia scare edge with his neck. And then daniel bryan with his concussion issues. These are three men who were were done and now we get them all back all the biggest prize and all characters that at the top of their game right now. Well you're not gonna get it. You're not going to get that story because it hurts the world's mention that lake to just go. I think it's a cool thing. No i do. I agree i agree. They just don't want to focus on the things that make you root for roman reigns. But you're right. It is true. And and and that is that matches great. The to women's title matches are great. It looks like they're going to do a schmuck zola multi tag match for the women's tag which is whatever And bad bunny. Ms will be silly and fun. That's fine there's a place for that on wrestlemainia and on paper. The fiend and randy could be awesome. There's a lot of fun stuff. It's just a last several weeks including the fast lane pay per view it is. It's it's not all been pretty. I'm excited for sasha and And bianca they just you know. Burn the house down. I mean that is that is my hope. I think they obviously have the capability of doing it. And i think that they will tell. That's the match. Most excited to see frank and i know people you know when ria challenged oscar. A lot of people were just confused about how she could stake. A claim to the role would miss championship and and get the matching. I'll point out that she was the runner up at this past royal rumble and historically when they have a brand split and there are two world. Titles the runner-up does go onto the the title. That is chosen by the rumble winner. If you think about cnn batista seen did it. And i think even last year it happened. So the runner-up constantly find their way into into that other title match. I think people were just confused about why rio took so long to show after the rumble. She was telling you know what i mean by the time. Evidently so but i i do i do. I don't know what they can do this last week. to try to like tie things up It's been it's been a loose few months but when you to it when we get to that day i think we will have a great card and then you start out by the weights to those those two days and then and then it's just about. Where do we go after this because crowds are going to be coming back. Potentially i mean who knows the way. These cases continue to grow up But crowds. I would imagine by summer slam. You know if this if there was a crowd for wrestlemainia crab for summer slim and where do we go and boy do. We need the crowds back. I think that the reaction of the crowd or lack thereof has played a serious detriment to the products. Yeah and not just because of how it looks and sounds but not having the crowd's feelings to help determine what things are working. Yeah that's that's going to be the big thing right because the the good thing about not having the crowd is a gave them the freedom to tell us stories they wanna tell where roman is completely a bad guy he got. You suck chance that. I don't think he ever got if there was a crowd But said when when the time comes an a. The crowd gets to be vocal about the things that they like and dislike. I think they're gonna find out that Some of their artistic choices have have been rejected by the viewing public particularly roman. I think roman is going to be beloved. Well we'll see about that. I hope that's not the case. I hope roman gets booed when there's a crowd. I hope he gets booed at mania. That's going to be interesting. That's really it's going to be a really fun. Part about wrestlemainia is you know do they. Do we know the total number of people knob in seeing conflicting varying reports obscene. That they wanna go to like twenty five percent capacity seen as high as like seventy five percent. But i i have no idea articulate. Do whatever it is. W ereck number when you till available. But there's tweets supposedly twenty five thousand people each night out of whatever that it you know it probably holds seventy or with staging. Maybe sixty five something like that. I'll tell you what people love the bush-whackers other greg yes. Of course i sell dope. I gotta tell you barrister admit this. If you put a gun to my head and said pick luke and pick butch. It's a fifty fifty chance. I make it out guys. Wow that's really surprising. And very upsetting. Year to be completely honest with. I'm really that what about. Us yuji nagata. Feel like i can do. I feel like i could do it. Of course if you can know. Butch from luker who are you. What type of wrestling fan radio. If you don't know luke from butch. There's something wrong with you if you can't tell it's it's hard to describe like if you held up a photograph. I could pick them up. But like describing you will be describing the same person. It's not like the nasty boys with you. Know you can say all right. Listen knobs is the blonde brunette that grabbed luke and butch still describing the same had more stronger hairline and. I don't think he was particularly missing teeth. I think luke was was clearly missing one of his frontier and had a much more receding airline. By the way i got bad news for you there in a tag match against a tags in that if i was in the same situation dealing with the same thing. I don't know if i can pick out the rouges neck standing back to back you come on. Ray had the mustache though but if the back is from behind probably not but ray. Raymond had the mustache. Yeah raymond's the more recognizable house. You think is more recognizable automatic. You're now you're telling you can't tell the rougeau support. Yeah the rules jealous is bushwacker like give it to the rouge is is a grievous. That's the one that's come on. Yeah they gotta tell you here. Isn't you'd revelry. Had no moustache moustache. How solar power. One has a moustache. I gotta you. I don't wanna play this game anymore because it's getting really had the mullet rahab. The miladin cannot bel. I i between old school tag teams. I still don't know which ones brett which ones jim. If you said you can kill the bees apart to argue that one. No that one. I don't kill killer. I have which one is jumping. Jim brown's l. Even i could tell the killer bees apart even with the masks on. Yeah they looked. That's that's the killer. Bees killer speaking of different the killer. Bees with the masks on it's different than the killer. Bees without the makeup am i right. It'll be hits different. But honestly when i was at my biggest fan ship for them and i have the poster city in my house right now. They were massed off killer bees. Yeah but yeah i. I would the amount of raccoons that i would pay for a killer. Bees mask ring worn. What do you think ted would sell their the how much you could get obio one hundred thousand dollars now.

If you have it in repub conditional take it i. I can't imagine how much it's worth in regular condition. If you get that close you gotta get you gotta get the undertake. The saudis little bit l. away. You can't just have the collection be like incomplete by one or two spending that amount of raccoons on on on on the sargent slaughter one is not gonna be it hits different in a not in a good way.

Now and i got elizabeth which is great. I got you know. I got you know hogan with the white shirt. I'm well i. I gotta say this right now. There's something going on. I haven't told anybody this. What are you have you have. Some is spent more raccoons on something related to wrestling than any of us have ever spent on anything related to wrestling. And when i when i tell you you're not going to understand it and you're gonna think i'm a psycho but it's happened. Was it ring born tights. Noble if you've been following me on social you have seen that. I have followed the craze and i have been dipping back into card collecting. That's right would you get the most desired set of cards. Well there's there's two really. There's the eighty two wrestling all stars which are very rare. And then there's the eighty five tops. Wwf which includes the beloved hulk hogan rookie card. I purchased a sealed authenticated box of nights. Eighty five tops. Y'all i'm smelling an t. It's it's it's nfc nfc. Ajay's confirm nfc aged. I mean when you think about it. That's actually what cards are really. Is that but i literally spent raccoons raccoon. Several raccoons were spent. And the though feels like i am the frustrating part is. I doubt i'll ever open this. But i i'm watching these cards. And the eighty-five tops are so desired. And i figured that. If i'm gonna do the card thing at all i need to have one at least one ridiculous wrestling card thing like otherwise what am i doing how am i be. I'm not me so i did it. I'll tell you both the number off the air. But i spent records and i have a sealed box of nineteen eighty five top thirty six packs of nineteen eighty five tops. Wwf what Temperature are you keeping them question. That's it's just the kids at the garden. It's a great question. Where do i keep these. I don't know what to do. I put them in a safe deposit box. Yes that gets them or something. I bear gets to them and eats all the gum. I you open a pack in my presence. I will eat the gum. Ultra the gum. I know you. I mean the only way this would i would open. This is if. I ran into so much money where i said. I don't give a shit anymore and pay per view. We just say let's open the bond. Fuck it would be fun up a storm to open the box looking for the hogan rookie. Did they make think. There's plenty of ogan rookies. If you look the value is basically if you pull out a gem minton ten hogan rookie. It's worth thousands of dollars if you get a but you could go online right now owned by a seven or an eight rated hogan for a couple of hundred bucks. The money is in gem. Ten but the beauty of a sealed authenticated boxes. These pacts have never been touched. So you could legit polish gem mid ten so that is my move if you're out there and you're into the cards thing or the wrestling thing or the wrestling cards thing and you see some eighty five tops. Those are the ones as you. Did you black our. He's oh yeah up and up and black and i'm black y'all enough black and i'm black and not black black black black black on black because this one is going to be in memoriam to the hurt business.
