"You know, pitchers catchers baseball love baseball. We're going to talk a lot about baseball today because of this significant week, Bob friend passing away and also Frank Robinson. Mike dirty in building today working on the fan. And he was actually at the funeral viewing out in Oakmont. Because of course, his relationship with Bob friend junior a professional golfer at one time, I wanna talk about that. But a guy really who is famous for major league baseball hall of fame broadcaster Bob cautious guys. Greg. Dial is John Bannon Jack both here with me today as always. From eleven to one it'll be here. Next hour. We're going to do a lot about last week Super Bowl win for the New England Patriots toxin NFL as well. And this new af valve is well, there's new league we're gonna discuss that. But Bob Costas, I watched a thing on east sixty just moments ago, actually, no longer with NBC four decades there, which is incredible one of my all time favorites had a lot of harsh things to say through the years about CTE and brain damage and problems in the NFL, and he kind of was taken off even though they call it a mutual agreement. The lashed a Super Bowl of what he was his career last year at that that brand is NBC, and it kind of telling story now what happened in a lot of this tumultuous relationship that he had with the NFL was pretty much the demise. As far as his forty year hall of fame career NBC now with the MLB network, and you know, pretty much accepted it and he's glad he did what he did. But I figured having you here Banney, a former NFL player in Greg obviously, an attorney by law and also handles many of these. Incredible athletes just as whole thing about the the NFL and CT, and obviously the movie that was made here in Pittsburgh with Will Smith where are we right now with this whole thing on the radar screen banning you wanna start out. I really don't know exactly where we are with it. And I don't think anybody realizes the extent of of CTE, and in some of the things that occur prior to see T. Whether it is opioid induced. I mean, there's some other factors involved in in, you know, the Alzheimer's situation and CT leading to that. And all the suicides that have occurred. You know, the Boston University is the the central gathering place for all of the brains that have been donated to them. Well, you know, there's there's an awful lot of things out there today that that contradict what Boston University has done with the information that have and you know, Merrill, Hodge's book that is how brainwashed highlight some of the things that occur all along with CTE and CDs and a situation where and and I'm not an expert on this by any chance. I didn't write the book. I'm only like three chapters into. To it. But it's very interesting some of the other factors that lead to CTE that warrant identified and in may. You know, suicide possible in you know, all the blame has been football causes CT. And that's totally wrong. Football does not I agree with you on that. 'cause CT. Okay. No matter how many shots to the head. You take football did not cause let me say this before we have the legal mind jumping here. And this is a very interesting topic. I respect Bob Costas. He has the right to do that. And obviously he took the chance he rolled the dice and ended up where it ended up and they won't be holding any red tagged as for this guy. I mean incredible at what he does. But I've often nearly come to the defense of the NFL because I think it's in all walks of life in all sports, and even people who work construction for a living, and you know, if you're in your house, and you bang your head a number of times, you know, as we all have just a household mishap. It can happen. And I think the NFL because of their success people see dollar signs, and they bang on them. And what have you, but it is awfully interesting to see. What's happened to sports today? And how going back to the baseball steroid issue and all of that other stuff. Is it more about sports who's at turned into like everything else in our country? It's about tabloid stories driving the headlines as opposed to box scores, Greg. Well, I think they can be what's going on rob because life gives you certain choices as as you're younger. And as you as you say, by the way, you both look very dapper today. One wearing the brand, and you got the under armor, and I'm wearing the WalMart special. Although I'm WalMart special. But you guys look very dapper today. Thank you, go. Right ahead. I appreciate that. Very rarely do. I get. Stymie don't want ever happened in a courtroom, by the way, go ahead. What's what we see people make life choices, you choose your profession? And sometimes when when those professions are chosen, it leads you down a path of of certain great things that happen in life. You make a lot of money you get famous you meet a lot of people. You have great things that happen to you as a lot of famous football players do, but that comes with the downside that comes with the negatives. That that come through it not just head injuries. But you know, John you've been fortunate. Your your body has stayed in pretty good shape as you have aged. But most of your teammates were not so lucky many of them have had hip, replacements, knee, replacements, shoulder issues, all those types of things. But but it's not just happen. It doesn't just happen to football players as you said, Robin happens to a coal miners. It happens to construction workers. It's it's we can't live our life exclusive of saying, okay? Here's what we do. Now, we want to sue somebody forty years from now, even if they knew that there was something that was going to happen to us. And I don't think that these owners new forty years ago. Ago. What was what was going on? Did they did did everybody realize? Hey, we're banging our heads against each other every day that can't really be good for us. But how how any of them could have known is difficult. Now, you now you asked a question rob about enjoying you brought up the the center for research in Boston. One of the problems. I think that we're having with all of the different places that are researching is they're not putting their heads together. So you have a wonderful clinic here at UPN see with Dr Mickey Collins, and Dr Mark Lavelle. You also have Julian Bailes down at WVU, whose whose researching all this stuff, and he's primarily mentioned in the book. And then you have the guys in in in Boston. You have another research center out in LA looking into these these things and maybe instead of the it's like a race for them to try to prove different points and make their own fame as opposed to pulling their resources together in creating some type of reasonable response or way to pursue this book. The biggest problem that you have when you're dealing with concussions is you can't put a pad between your brain and your skull. That's what causes the concussion is. When your brain gets rattled inside your skull in. And that's where the injuries happen. So I. I have a friend of mine who was in an automobile accident. He was restrained. The he was wearing a seatbelt. He got a concussion. He never hit his head. But his the the impact of that had the situation had the issue arise where his head hit his brain hit the inside of a skull. So you're never gonna be able to pad that. So the the only thing that you're going to end up having to do is if somebody wants to play professional football, and some lawyers gonna come up with this release that says you wanna play professional football. You have to acknowledge that there's a risk down the road that you're going to have to undertake banning do re rebut that and we're going to do that when we get back. But I just think this is very timeline. It's important that we talk about it. And I got to be honest, you know, Jeremy shop just incredible stuff as far as what they do at ESPN in this e sixty program and Bob Costas like him or not he's very articulate. And he's always speaks his mind. He's always been very opinionated. And he's good at what he does. And it was compelling enough for me to bring it up today, and obviously because show many people in the audience in our love for banning and people who played in the. The NFL, especially our beloved Steelers. You know, the ones that are playing now on the ones who obviously were the black and gold for many years eight it's important. We talk about it in football is such a big part of western Pennsylvania and the Tri state. We'll be back on the market black and gold Sunday show..

"Fan reaction here on NewsRadio ten twenty. Katie. K I am Noah alongside Jackson Jack pirates fall to eighty one in seventy nine with a three nothing loss at the hands of the Cincinnati Reds who improved a sixty seven and ninety four on the year with one game remaining three nothing when a nice shutout outing by Lorenzen and he got done with the bat to Jack. What are your original thoughts from this game? Oh, you know, just the game late in the year. You know, you tie on. I think him pitching I think it got him to one hundred ninety one innings which is a milestone for him. Thirty two starts. He continues to have that run that he's on where. He's got what how many starts in a row to credible. I think the last twenty two in a row with three runs or less than you know, approaching with Bob friend, did I think that's the thing you take away from it. You look at it. And you say that. Dickerson hit three hundred you know, that's not smile. Allstone disdain h aren't many guys doing that now? And you know, there's some on the other side to Ecclesiastes cut his thirty two save. Jared Hughes has in the IRA under two point. Oh, I think it's the fourth fourth only two fourth pitcher in Cincinnati history. Although it's the other ball club. You know, they're late in the year like this. There are a lot of milestones and guys hanger hat on though. So unfortunate unit had a couple of guys leave the game a little nagging injuries. It sounds like in terms of. Of Mercer and Frazier. But you know, it's the end of the year tomorrow, you're gonna see everybody in a lineup. I think that's young and inexperienced and gaining experience. So, you know, it's that time of the year when there's not a lot at stake in terms of standing, so here's what it is. It's the game. And then tomorrow, we'll see the last one. Absolutely. I I couldn't agree more with just it's a late game. We saw a lot of substitutions. We saw probably the last game in their pirates career from James Harrison, and Jordy Mercer Geordie leaves with the injury that he going to ground ball in the first inning. Look like it was his chest. But they're saying it was his his right arm. So after his second at bat they took him out of the game. Let's run through the game real quick here. Highlights brought to you by high tech auto care on Babcock. They want you to come back because you want to not because you have to so highlights. Not many of them are pretty pretty simple ball. Game. When it's all said and done the red started off the scoring after a Billy Hamilton triple. You see him the batted end by Peraza and the bottom of the third inning on a sac fly to right field that made things one to nothing. Swaraj leads off the top of the fourth the next inning with a solo home run. Harare, hit a double in that same inning. And he is batted in by the pitcher Lorenzen to make it three nothing which would be the final score pirates did not have many highlights in this one held to. Not you know zero runs, and but the highlight of the game to me, I believe would be Jameson Thai-owned that would be the play of the game. Let's go ahead and hear how GMO ended his season on the stand strike three..

"Just have to say Bob friends, if you're listening, my colleague who does the the nine to noon slot in Cleveland on W H K, you really have to finally admit Baker Mayfield was the man he walked onto the field last night ports. Sam darnold. I told you USC quarterback quarterback. Slow loopy, no charisma. I mean, basically couldn't move the team. Even when the Browns were listless in the first half pint tyrod Taylor, but I digress. The Browns one how long it has been able to say that December of two thousand sixteen the Browns won an NFL game. They are one one in one that could have been three now, but they're one one and one and Mayfield Inc. Going back to the bench. Honestly, Hugh Jackson, even if he wanted to send them back to the bench. Jimmy, Adam would fire him. Baker Mayfield is there until injured every quarterback in the NFL goes out for a few series. Tyrod will be back. I hope he's doing better a concussion protocol. But it gets moving the team Baker Mayfield. So great and every Browns fan across these vast great United States of America knows a page has been turned the the Browns are back in new era has begun of NFL domination by the once mighty and mighty to be again Cleveland Browns. But I digress. There's really only one story. What do we do at the cabinet hearing? We don't know. Yesterday. Professor Blasios legal team that I referred to her as professor Blasi because that is the way her lawyer would like there to be referred to Christine Blasi Ford. Professor Blasi her lawyer sent a letter to the Senate detailing conditions unacceptable, you don't detail conditioned to the Senate. And I believe later today. Senator Grassley will say we will gavel the hearing opened on Monday. We will make it very safe for your client to appear she will appear. I she can have it close or she can have an open it will be up to her. But she will go first, and we will do it on Monday. Or we're going to not have a hearing. And we're going to proceed to vote on the nomination and Senate to the floor. Witnesses don't dictate hearings. She has made allegations she needs to come and talk about those allegations. They need to be respectfully listened to. They will be respectfully listen to now. Marco Rubio sort of summed up what we have here yesterday on FOX and friends cut number twelve. I don't know one could speculate that that's a very uncomfortable position to be in. And I understand that. And here's my my point. This information emerged probably later than it should have it certainly should have been disclosed earlier, I could have been dealt with an a very different way. It was not the information was brought before I believe that it deserves serious attention and respect, and we should hear from judge Cavanaugh who has strongly denied it. I encouraged I wanted the committee under Senator Grassley to provide her an opportunity and a warm she was comfortable, and the sort of share this information, and she's been given that opportunity of my understanding either publicly or privately, and, but ultimately if that doesn't happen. But once you shouldn't be criticized for not doing it. Number two. We can't force her and we shouldn't try to. But then the Senate has to move forward. Based on the information we have before us. And so ultimately, it's a difficult choice. I imagine for someone like her to make it ultimately, we've got to move forward one way or the other here on this. And I think the important thing from the Senate perspective is that she'd be provided a professional and respectful incredible platform if she chooses to do so, and it appears that that's been offered. Ultimately, the decision is hurts to make and that should be respected either way if we don't hear from her on Monday or from him in turn which way, given what you know right now about him would you vote on the competition? So we can only make votes depending on the information that's before us, and that's that's credible. And that that can be proven or that at least so. So if alternately we've seen sort of these allegations that have been out there in the press, but no testimony about it hasn't been presented. No further information has been made available. We've heard the Niles, and I imagine that's what we're here again on Monday at that hearing, and then based on that information and not just that everything else who know by judge cavenaugh, we'll have to make a decision, and I continue to be supportive of his nomination. I if there is credible information that emerges that somehow undermines out let everybody know. And obviously the form if there is such information out there, it is the job of the committee to provide a forum for that information be made available, but you can't force someone to provide that, and and so ultimately, we'll have to move forward based on what we know. And and that is his years of experience on the bench in twelve years on the circuit court already in DC and and move forward from there. You see I do not believe that the the chairman as well served by controlling the committee yesterday I received about five thousand tweets saying, Merrick garland to which hit the mute button. I'll never hear from people again because if you are so stupid as to think that Merrick garland has anything to do with this not only was his seat filled by Neil Gorsuch, and it's a different seat, Merrick garland, the no hearings, no votes policy evolved, and was announced by Senate majority leader at the time before he was nominated because the Senate is a majoritarian body, and Harry Reid proved that when it comes to nomination the majority makes the rules. So the majority decided not to fill that into put it to the people and the people voted I go with the people's vote to everyone and tells me Carl America, America Arlen are anti-democratic just don't listen to him. I meet them Merrick. There's absolutely no hypocrisy inconsistency to have been for no hearings. No votes on the sudden death of Justice Scalia. We employed the Biden role that Joe Biden announced two years before. Can't help them if they can't read if they can't read because I can't help them. And I don't care if they tweet at me just mute them by just being because in fact, the Senate Judiciary committee is doing everything they can to be welcoming to and protective professor Blasi cut number. So that Garrett Venturi. The committee has reached out to the attorney for Dr Ford multiple times. We've left voice voicemails. We've obviously emailed back and forth in an attempt to find a comfortable setting for Dr four to share these allegations with the committee. We've offered an opportunity to a public hearing a private hearing to meet with staff we offer to fly anywhere around the globe to meet with her. We would go to California to send staff there. So that we can do this in a comfortable setting for her as the chairman is said, okay. That the ranking member Senator Dianne Feinstein is really pushed back. Here's part of what she said today in a tweet she said in one thousand nine hundred eighty one the FBI reopened a background investigation and need a hill. And Clarence Thomas interviewed every day. More people came forward claiming firsthand knowledge of the events. It's time for the FBI to do the same today. Why are Republicans resisting an investigation that accurate? Well, I think it's interesting because as chairman grouse as pointed out multiple times today that Senator Feinstein sat on this information for about six weeks before she brought this. She didn't even bring it up. It was leaked via the media. She wanted an FBI investigation. It's interesting. She did not bring it up as soon as you heard. Those allegations alluding to the Clarence Thomas hearing. Joe Biden who is the chairman of the committee of that time immediately referred to the White House of the FBI can investigate it. The committee is in a position to investigate. This we've begun this. We have reached out to both Dr Ford in judge Cavanaugh to do routine background calls so far the ranking member staff would typically join the majority staff on those calls and they refused to participate. So what you've got here is the Democrats are obstructing the witnesses attempting to manipulate and the Republicans should not go along with it. They should open to hearing up on Monday. They should make sure she's safe secure and has her choice of appearing before an opener a close setting then judge Cavanaugh should testify close the record schedule. You have to believe someone I believe judge Cavin is you know evidence. I don't have to believe that Wayland theory. Although it is much about people are looking at the case. I wouldn't go there. I don't know the people involved, but I believe judge Cavanaugh, I believe in it. So I would vote for him. And I think we ought to do that on Wednesday. Right back on the Hugh Hewitt Show. Brown. Somewhere in the world uses happening. You'll hear it here first. But only if you're here when Hugh Hewitt continues. What happened you.

"Of inviting friends of yours here on the show to talk about their journey to successfully reaching retirement. Yes. Because what better way to learn than from someone who has accomplished it? So who who are you gonna talk to you this week? So Bob friend of the family since the sixties just a great guy anytime that we that we have to spend with Bob just the best. But I mean, if you think about it for everything else that you want to do in this world, you go online, you talk to people, you know, there's just this huge amount of research that. That's out there that you can that you can look at right from people who have done, it's you can watch videos and read about it. But there's like next to nothing for what could be probably the biggest event in your life. And it's retirement it's reviews of people doing it right now, you know, what they did in their own voices their concerns and worries their successes, but most importantly, one of the things that we talk about is what they would have done differently. So that you can do things differently when your time comes around. So with that. Let's listen in as Bob and Andy talk about reaching retirement. There's some sort of and this is odd. But there's some sort of embarrassment quotient, I'm retiring, it's almost like I'm checking out did, you know, because I think the kind of jobs have had in the past. I was like, I wanna know. I don't know. And I also think that when you're growing up you get your paycheck, and there's always that box. That tells you X number of dollars went to. Social security. So I think there's this belief that when you get to a certain age, and you decide to sign up for those things you just expect the retirement ferry to appear and hit you with a want. And it's all done, you know, and and all of a sudden here, you are already taken care of everything that you've got to win AARP is much better. But there's but it's going to be done. And all of a sudden you start getting checks, and it's so much more than that getting social security is is not an easy thing for Medicare. It's not an easy thing. And there's no sort of easy comfortable guide to do those things. Again. I I don't think there aren't accessible books. There's not a learning situation to learn how to get old, okay? And be comfortable getting old. Fortunately, you know, having knowing you and your pop the whole idea of financial planning needs to be as important as going to the grocery store. I mean, you you need that you need someone else who's far more versed and the whole idea financial planning to help tell you what to do what had you done earlier in life. I mean, I know that you saved I know that you went through different points in the. Market where you know, sign credible kinda runs and saw early ninety s and early nineties came and everything else. But you know, like, how did you approach saving? How did you approach investing? What was that? Like because you know, we're all in kind of this accumulation period. You know, we're working ten twenty sometimes thirty years, and then we start to make that shift, but when you weren't focused on retirement, but you were still focused on the future. How did you save? How did you invest? How did you think about your money that wasn't right now money but down the road coming from the midwest, I always had this and very poor. I mean, we were raised in a trailer. And so there was this whole idea of you've got to save money. You've gotta have insurance saying certain basic, thanks. So even though I was making a great deal of money at the time some of that was still there. I knew that I had to put. Some money aside did but I it's funny. It's like if you're a big if you're a film star or big athlete or something and these people who are working with you. They don't wanna tell you know, too many times because then you go somewhere else. Okay. So so and we need people. I think to tell us. No. And and respectfully why it's a now I wish I had had that I mean because the specific problems or because I'm because you spend money. Okay. And you rationalize it and emotional, and you're not thinking about you know, what when I'm sixty five and in Indianapolis and everything's turned around. So thank God that I had put some aside. I could've done more. And I wish I had put aside more. But e you know, you hope that that you have enough because the biggest fear of courses that you you. You don't want to be dependent upon anyone you wish that you could have done more that you would have done more your approach to your money. Is it different? Relax. Okay. How so. Because when when when the money's coming in you, you you always fly first class. I went business, and what is this about? And it's not because you're thinking of it being extravagant at the time. It's just something you do because you can okay. And you you're not thinking about, you know, do I really need to take this trip. Do I need to fly?

But I mean, if you think about it for everything else that you want to do in this world, you go online, you talk to people, you know, there's just this huge amount of research. That's out there that you can. That you can look at right from people who have done it. You can watch videos and and read about it. But there's next to nothing for what could be probably the biggest event in your life. And it's retirement it's reviews of people doing it right now, you know, what they did in their own voices their concerns and worries their successes, but most importantly, one of the things that we talk about is you know, what they would have done differently. So that you can do things differently when your time comes around. So with that. Let's listen is Bob and Andy talk about reaching retirement. There's some sort of and this is odd. But there's some sort of embarrassment quotient. I'm retiring, it's almost like I'm checking out did, you know, because I think the kind of jobs have had in the past. I was like, I wanna know. I don't know. I also think that when you're growing up you get your paycheck, and there's always that box. That tells you X number of dollars went to social security. So I think there's this belief that when you get to a certain age, and you decide to sign up for those things you just expect the retirement ferry to appear and hit you with a wand, and it's all done. You know? And and all of a sudden here, you are already taking care of everything that you've got to AARP is much better. But there's but it's going to be done. And all of a sudden you start getting checks, and it's so much more than that getting social security is not an easy thing for Medicare. It's not an easy thing. And there's no sort of easy comfortable guide to do those things. Again. I I don't think there aren't accessible books. There's not a learning situation to learn how to get old, okay? And be comfortable getting old. Fortunately, you know, having knowing you and your pop the whole idea of financial planning needs to be as important as going to the grocery store. I mean, you you need that you need someone else who's far more versed in the whole idea of financial planning to help tell you what to do what had you done earlier in life. I mean, I know that you saved I know that you went through, you know, different points in the. The market where you know, you saw incredible kinda runs and saw early ninety s and early nineties came and everything else. But you know, like, how did you approach saving? How did you approach investing? What was that? Like because you know, we're all in kind of this accumulation period. You know, we're working ten twenty sometimes thirty years, and then we start to make that shift, but when you weren't focused on retirement, but you were still focused on the future. Like, how did you save? How did you invest? How did you think about your money that wasn't right now money but down the road coming from the midwest, I always had this and very poor. I mean, we were raised in a trailer. And so there was this whole idea of you've got to save money. You've got to have insurance certain basic, thanks. So even though I was making a great deal of money at the time. Some of that was still there. I knew that I had to put some money aside. But it it's funny. It's like if you're a big if you're a film star or a big athlete or something and these people who are working with you. They don't want to tell you know, too many times because then you'll go somewhere else. So so and we need people. I think to tell us. No. And and respectfully why it's a no I wish I had had that I mean because the specific problems or because I'm you know, because you spend money, and you rationalize it, and it's a very emotional. And you're not thinking about you know, what when I'm sixty five and in Indianapolis and everything's turned around. So thank God that I had put some aside. I could've done more. And I wish I had put aside more. But you know, you hope that that you have enough because the biggest fear of courses that you you. You don't want to be dependent upon anyone you wish that you could have done more that you would have done more your approach to your money. Is it different? Where you absolutely okay how. So because when when when the money's coming in you, you you always fly first class. Okay. I went business. What is this about? And it's not because you're thinking of it being extravagant at the time. It's just something you do because you can okay. And you you're not thinking about, you know. Do I really need to take this trip? Do I need to fly? You just do because the money is there, and there's no one sort of say, your parents, aren't there to tell you put some more money in the Bank? And you. I wish I had put more aside and had thought more about the potential. I mean, how many people would you and your forty five and you're at the top of your career and oh, man. I better be thinking about what happens when I'm seventy two. That was Andy having a conversation with his friend Bob in Andy Smith, I've got to tell you that was one of the most interesting insights into the human side of your job that I think I've ever heard thanks for for bringing Bob into share that with is great just. Magnificent guy. So if anything that Bob says resonates with you. I'd love to hear from you disseminate mill with your thoughts..
