Of course of concern, okay, but they are saying yes. In the so help! A great job, good, good good. Thank thing here. Cap on what you have fun with me today you. Know. You're going to do that, but the first thing. I'd like to say paid homage to you because again. One of the things growing up here in Pasadena California. I had an opportunity to get drafted by Los Angeles. Lakers and I'm going to say something that I've never told anybody before Al Tell. You, I remember, and you remember with Loyola Marymount had that old Jimbo but there before they refurbished the new one that they have now. I walked into the gym and Nineteen Seventy Nine, and I saw you down. The other end shoots skyhooks and kept almost pissed my pants man, because I was walking into legendary status in seeing you at Ucla and the things that don't the Lakers. I was very honored to be there so i. tell you that I haven't told anybody else, but. You know. Put. My depends on, but you really scared the shit out. There, so we're looking wave. You are. In your rookie year, your guy you and. Heart and your commitment to the team, and then the. One hundred percent every year she played. And I WANNA. Thank you, I remember. I was out there, trying to airlock. WHO's a skinny guy flying over my shoulder? You know it's. Twenty one. School! Goes back. Thank you. Let's start this off by what was your thoughts? When they brought in coach mckinney from Portland, they started assembling a team Obviously they brought him Magic Johnson's gentlemen to your your less daughter, what we saw at nine hundred eighty season. When we were getting ready to go into this season. What were your thoughts about that? Well I. I was looking forward to. You're shaking things up. Because magic such unique talents you know with his. To be a a six nine. Is Great rebounder in greatest appointing forward kind of Dr Guard. A. Amazing now. We got the attention, Cope will. Doing the same type of thing, but your magic really was sworn size. That could feel to handle that. Were you excited about him? Because I know before the season before he can get norm Nixon, some of the people pitching in screen behind you. DAMARA Wilkes You guys had a formidable trio. And now you add all these new pieces myself but magic was a major piece. Did you really think he was GonNa? Turn out to be the type of player he became. While I overheard deliberate the ANC to a tournament. Outstanding Player and Heard that so I knew he could. He was GONNA contribute. I didn't know what it was going to contribute. I expected A. As you as Though he didn't let us know. Special Person kept one of the things I'm GONNA. Take you down memory lane a little bit. What was it like plan for a legendary coach John Wooden at Ucla. I think. It was something that I took regretted. Go because I had so much success while I was in high school. So. I just took for granted that ignited gold right for a great college program, but it was. It was very unique. Unique guy in that sense. Industry the gain. He understood influence. Young men in a positive way I. really appreciated. mccollum experience. Graduate I. Had enough credits to get my degree in a whole lot about the game. To, just A. A really positive. Set of options in front of me to choose from. With us on podcast, showtime with COO is Ari my man. Arias here he's GonNa. Ask a couple of questions, but. For you cat would be. So coach wouldn't touch you in that kind of wealth far as an athlete. Did he touching your personal life just to add to a little bit? Yeah. I got to. Talk to coach about stuff that had nothing to do aggressive all. He was English teacher. English Major. For a number of years UCLA. So in stuff to talk about nothing to do with the game is a was refreshing. It took the pressure off and enable need to have a really good. Really Good College experience. You know I enjoyed my glasses I want to get. The. Cream? I, WanNa extend with what your to make. Coupe was saying on the magic thing because. I've been able to cover championship. NBA teams before, and the the we talk about skill and ability, but the the ability to defer one's ego for the betterment of at team, and and we're talking about the coach best player just online. I think that to me is maybe the the the critical point of magic joining the team. Was You know you guys had the willingness to defer ego for the betterment of what needed to be done? WAS THERE I? Don't know of concern, but did you right away? This guy was the real deal because of that. It's really easy to figure it out. Because magic saw his job is to get. He saw his purpose was to allow us to score in facilitate that. Rusty shine because we show he so you also went back and forth on magic at six nine out of our time. Guarding Quick Guards, playing point. So we had to help on that issue, but it never ended up being a problem. And you know we just made. The adjustments need to comments on just. Just to jump on that art for second is that magic is cap said wasn't a very good, individually individual defensive player, but he was probably one of the greatest double teams that we've had in basketball. Being of his is like when we had the double certain people in the post, not the cabinet, but just to get the ball out of that individual players hands. Magic was always there on point most of the time scale, but he made. everybody's a little bit easier because. To help everyone. Six nine. There was nobody is GonNa like Crystal Mountain weighing? Get he he was equal to that. You could have played out forward if he wanted. The Big Butt out there two point. It just gave us all more options. With with the last dance, going on now I'm curious like what would it look like for the eighty seven eighty eight Lakers or even the eighty eight eighty nine Lakers to have camera crews following them around all year like like Jordan his last Eric last dance I. Think you'd see a guys that. Likely, phillies company. When we go out road, trying to do something together. We went through Latin movies. Magic officer Qantas to show any. Team to? We do. It really made for. Log of family you know. I. See these guys as my brother's still now. Thirty years later, those kinds of my brothers. We did something that. Will last a lifetime. Caps speaking of brothers. There's one little incident. I WANNA bring up and I think eighty three eighty four season where it was your birthday and we wanted to play a birthday. Joke on, you thought. Figured easy as you know copy Sitcom with a pair of jeans, and he warns Ucla Cop and he just came to the game, so he get you know played again. Get a shower and get out of there. Well. We took upon ourselves to wish him happy birthday. We cut up all his clothes this particular time. Cut His jeans upswing, Captain Artists, our guy, dressy and having jeans and. About it and stuff, but you know what cap. He systematically got all of his back and I remember mine. The most vivid is that you're the reason why I went prematurely bald because. We're going off. It can't put. On my hair. Again That was the last time I messed with creed. Can you talk a little bit about that? Michael. I enjoyed reading the newspaper and. SPIGA.

That won't farewell in fun. It cost me a lot. Just, take off court a little bit some of your interest, you know and I always been a big jazz fan and L. Makers and had an opportunity to talk to you. You really opened up my world about jazz even more. My people were miles Davis. John Coltrane, but you introduced me to Herbie Hancock Cedar Walton some of the other ones I mean. Dad was a musician early. How? Get Interested in Jazz. But my dad playing down admittance Klay Housing in Harlem. Right after the war during the. Era and of I grew up in that era, you know. Dizzy Gillespie and Sarah Bond and John coltrane miles. All those people are Charlie. All people were just heroes of mine. Because my dad, you don't need. You. Just were dead. Worship and I enjoyed the music. So. It was partly. It's still part of. Consolo coaching it to have experience of all that joy and positive. Motivation at that. Can't process. and. I still enjoy it to this day and is ready to share. Really a great time with your house. You Re Andrews COINC-. League. Like these. limited-overs pretty big than you might. Ernie denied need Mike. Up The whole House I. E. Bluey Away Lake So. That was a great shooting. My pleasure. Cat, one, of the things that I. Think I have to touch on. Just a little bit is the fact that you know as basketball players? We have a tendency to take our fans for granted at times throughout our career, and sometimes people dorm sometimes. They hate him, but I think the situation that happened to you in a bring this up. Only in a positive sense is win that unfortunate fire that you had at your house and your whole jazz collection got destroyed in that fire of other things. But yet so many fans that came out, and that really touched me to hear that that came out, and you replace a Lotta irreplaceable stuff in your jazz collection. We'll talk a little bit about that. was also because a mind vinyl collection. You know my islands was like. In my yard. That's what happened to aspirin. Gun Foundation and A radio station Gimme the jazz collection in different. Fans that in various jobs where we go to play. It'd be at the at the bus ownership in. Probably like this, it was wonderful to lifted up like that. Across, the country that that. Our suggestion. Camp Winning Championships. That's which about now you know obviously into the Lakers. Of all your championships, the six that you have which wants to use is the most enjoyable one. Nine thousand nine, hundred five. That was all year. You know. We finally beat the Celtics. Lakers Celtic. Thing was bit now because. We're up. In Boston guard the only team win a world championship in Boston Garden under than. The Boston Celtics. got a little bit. You know I've. Made my career in. It was that good to me? You know I enjoyed Nike. I'm still. Can't you know you're absolutely right, but use the wrong word? We kicked their ass. Okay, we can't put it out the. Six Games and they were lucky that they got out of. Form were doing. So. That's it in. What's his name? I love La come on yeah I was in an all in all everything together some nice. We'd start. Solving on. Their boss. Just outstanding carrying her thinking about that early. Yeah, let's say from eighty to eighty four or some of the things that you remember don't have to be a specific year, but some things that happen along the way we'll probably one of the funniest thing that happened to you do those years. So. Sort of back and forth between the guys on the team after back and you've got. The rivalry between him and north. That was hilarious. In. Got Married. into. We were all shocked about Mary. Somebody really close to home we. Get into that. We. We were able to ride important bloggers time when just? All in all stuffy. Be Talking all at Macho stuff. Than, see the reality. Remember Bobby Nine. Talk too much of. The CAB Nineteen eighty-eight. We win the championship again and we're going into that season. Nineteen, eighty live I remember going to the palace. We beat Be Detroit the next year. We're going back to beat them pat. Riley was wearing us out at practice man. It was other, but we get to the final game. Everything's all set love for us to win it again. Where practice ball goes up Magic Abi Byron Scott Ruptures his ham and we're like okay. This is my thoughts, okay, I'm like okay. We can still overcome this overcome. We start to gain. I play. The game back goes down his HAM. What were your thoughts Dan cap because I, remember mind. My thoughts were. Might as well call a cab. Airport its own. Is really just as. We go into files with Augustine. I thought we could beat them. You could feel it s team, but he got swept goop. is nothing we can do about it. You know we didn't have earn. All all of our guys went healthy in that. That's part of the game. I can live with that. Too many great years to complain about the. Look look, don't we have Along So we had some bad lots of and that was definitely back and I'm like you do believe we were going to kill them. If you remember real quickly, is that every game? Getting swept. We were ahead at half time. They just had more than we going down the stretch, but You'RE GONNA. Have some luck. women cap going to your last year.

Can we make that the name of the show brisk Pritchard? Dammit, dammit. I like the damage in there. I don't know why your damn you had a good thanksgiving yesterday. And today, we're back to our regularly scheduled programing. Hopefully last night, you enjoyed your new guess is your second annual thanksgiving tradition. I survivor series watch long from nineteen eighty eight. If you haven't already check it out in the archives, something wrestle dot com. But man, I'm excited to cover a topic that I've been looking forward to covering from the beginning survivor series nineteen ninety three. Well, you know, it was a strange year. There was a lot of shit going on. And as we get into this felt like a lot of things that we have covered before individually, but not ever together at the same time in how all the Gaga in the bullshit going on in the wrestling business, and particularly with us in titan sports time, how it affected everything in one in one show really getting -ffected bad. Well, I'm really excited about this one. Because when you and I talked about doing a podcast, I said, what do you think would be the best episodes? I had some opinions of what I wanted to hear as fan, but you kept coming back to man survivor series, ninety three what a story nobody knows the whole story. And you and I did what we would. Call a practice episode. You know, a demo of sorts and we wanted to just sort of have a dry run talking through wrestling, topics. Get our timing down and get with one another etc. Etc. And we never aired it. And I'm not even sure that either one of us still have a copy of it. But it was certainly good practice. And now over two years later nearly two and a half years later or finally sitting down to talk about survivor series, nineteen Ninety-three. This went down twenty five years ago man of ever twenty-fourth nineteen Ninety-three at the Boston Garden right there in Boston, Massachusetts. And even as a little kid on new that Boston was a big town for the WWF. We know that New York is the home market where does Boston fall number two number three number four not saying now, but I'm saying when you came into the company say eighty seven I'd say, it was it was Madison Square Garden than it was Long Island. Nassau County Coliseum Boston and Philadelphia. And then then go to Baltimore and so on and so forth. But those were the. Those were the top spots in Boston. Because it also had the New England sports network that we did television out of there. And we use the tapings out of Boston for prime time. Wrestling all American things like that. So it was. Yeah. It was New York both both buildings in New York, Long Island and Madison Square Garden and then Boston Philadelphia. Those were the top four though Baltimore in there for top five and Meadowlands were the main the bills were the big the big events in the northeast. Well, this is a big event here you've got one hundred eighty thousand dollars in ticket sales attendance for the event as fifteen thousand five hundred nine fans now that sounds really strong to me, but I found in Marie search. This is actually the lowest attendance I survivor series since nineteen eighty nine. The paper of houbara is also down. It's only a point eight two down from a one point four the. Are here so fell off a cliff, and it was a million Bosch short of what survivor series did two years prior in nineteen ninety one. She can start to see the decline in business survivor series. Ninety three is the first WB of per view ever to have a bar rate under a one in history. So the show on pay per view that a two million dollar gross. Roughly, Bruce, you've even the company, you know, you came on when they were hotter than ever in eighty seven eight was what it was eighty nine is the hottest year ever ninety trots new things with warrior, your business dipped a little bit ninety one comes down quite a bit ninety two more of the same. But ninety three it feels like, oh, no. Is that fair to say internally inside the office? I don't know that it was Ono. It was certainly oh, no. It's not lex. Because we ran a period of. Vince really trying to. Had that replacement for whole Cogan. He was he was looking for, you know, somebody years, and we did things. What would you do if it were hulk and lex Luger was the anointed one for especially during this time of data? He's the guy and he just wasn't living up to the potential. He wasn't drawing people they weren't clamoring to see more of lex Luger. They weren't cheering him and gold banana when he came out. So it was Vince wanted God, I'll show you and we kept pushing lacks in. This was about the time though. Where the doubt, you know, the doubt started to come in because we we did summer slam. And that was what it was. But Vince wasn't ready to put the championship on him. And. Now, we're we're sitting there going boy, he didn't didn't come out of that. Well, and I don't know if this is the guy. So there were doubts. Did you? I mean, obviously lane Tom's are ahead for the company. You know, when you first come on, you guys are selling out arenas. And you know, it almost feels like you could run stadiums at different times. And he certainly thought about it with wrestlemainia seven or couple years removed from that. You're not quite yet running high school gymnasiums, but that's not too far away. Did you start to get a little nervous? Or is this business as usual for you? Not for the company for Bruce pitcher. It was business as usual for me. Because I was in it. And I was I was deep in it. And also, I understood the limitations and the limitations were Vince did not want to bring on a lot of new talent because of the impending trial. Vince did not feel that it was fair talent to say going to bring you in. No what's going to happen. With the outcome of this United States federal government trial. So we were told here's the players. You have. Here's what you have make it work. And every once in a while we might be able to bring somebody in who who understood that was really ready to come in. But those were few and far between we didn't have the latitude just go out and hire people. If you hire someone new that was. Took a lot took a lot of time. And in costs money that would just didn't really have spend at the time. It was every dollar had to be accounted for. So Meltzer reported in the October eleventh observer the world wrestling federation survivor series and of ever twenty four th of the Boston Garden may leave the fastest major rain sell out in North American pro wrestling history tickets for the card the first pay per view show ever in Boston area and the final pro wrestling at the sixteen thousand seat Boston Garden or all sold out with the exception of a few badly. Obstruct obstructive use seats about ninety minutes after they were put on sale to the public at eleven AM on October. First the event was sold out before any of the matches were officially announced and part of the reason for the fast sell out was that the presale tickets stemming from a mailing the WBF sent people on its mailing list, which are largely magazine subscribers and others who sent in any kind of letter topped eight thousand perhaps the success will bring back mailing lists as a tool and promoting shows. So before we talk about the mailing list. It is interesting that the Bahrain is down. And -tendance lower. But then you see it sold out so fast, and you realize well attendance has lower because it was a smaller building. And that's true. I mean, clearly when you're selling out your tickets in ninety minutes ecoed have sold more. He just didn't have the ability to didn't have the capacity for it. But this is the last major show at the Boston Garden you worked that building. A lot chat me up your favorite Boston Garden memories. Favorite boston? Guard memory was refereeing. A match in the heart foundation. The Rouge does people in Boston used to freeze oranges in bring them to throw at the the wrestlers. And so you get hit in the head with with frozen fruit. But Jim neidhart was in a camel clutch and Raymond rougeau had him into camel clutch in my nose is nose to nose. Jim Knight hard on the mat? And I'd heart says move, and I leaned back basically just scooted back on the mat in a ice pick that had been thrown from somewhere nine heart caught it out of the corner of his eye stuck right in the ring right in between his head. I been there definitely would have hit me. So a lot of fun memories about Boston guards working there in the summer, the walls would actually sweat. It was so fucking humid in there. But that miss. Fear the that audience was magical. We're those magical old wrestling buildings that you had to work and you had to you had to experience talk about the mailing list. Here. You know, we've we've mentioned this before briefly. But you guys were were really utilizing this a couple years prior. Are remember my mind being blown when you revealed to me, the real reason that you guys that a letter writing campaign after earthquakes quashed hulk HOGAN, you had tugboat go on TV and say, hey, send your get well wishes to haul Cogan, and it wasn't until we started doing this that I realized what an idiot. I was off that was just to give kids something fun to do to write to the hero. Nope. He were building a mailing list genius. And it was something. Good for kids to do by God. Right. A letter come on. It was all our at one. I mean, come on the hawks to come back. It was such a great angle for me. But I never even considered. Hey, there is a business strategy here. They're building a mailing list. And you know back in the day. That's what a lot of people. Did. I remember CW had a mailing list. And they would send you this little paper catalog, so you could pick some of their home video releases, and you guys would send you know, the merchandise. Catalogs were Stephanie straighten that asset anew t shirt or a new hat or whatever. But here you're doing it. And this is obviously been replaced by E mail to let people know about tickets going on sale. And apparently it was a huge success. How often did you guys use a mailing list for ticket sales? Was this the first time or just the first time it was on Dave's radar because it was a major show. This was the first time from one of the big major events. We did it for all of our vents. However, we orchestrated this for on sale ticket. In allowing the people that were a part of the mailing list that they would have the first they would have the exclusive first pick of the tickets. The theory behind it. And what we were trying to test was announcing wrestlemainia one year in advance the location and tickets and everything in putting putting tickets on sale wrestlemainia the day after wrestlemainia for the next wrestlemainia. But letting people know that well ahead of time. And that, hey, here's here's where we're going to be. And here's what we're gonna do. You will be able to buy tickets the day after wrestlemainia, all you gotta do is is go here. That was that was the internal plan. This this one worked, and this one was very successful is said it was like an hour. So that we sold out tickets. With which just the mailing list. That was the only way we really informed people how they could get tickets. So that was the thing we wanted to try it out for wrestlemainia and the other big events for pay per view. Were you were you surprised at how? Well it worked. A little bit. Because it was it was early on in no matches have been announced. Nothing had been announced other than the survivor series in Boston that was it. So that was encouraging that we could announce here air, we're going to have an event, but by God, you know. Don't have any matches don't know who's going to be there. But you can buy tickets now. And they did they had faith in the brand. Did it for whatever reason even though businesses down in ninety three? There are certain metrics. She could look at and think well, they're actually up a little bit. Let's take a look at those your average attendance in November of ninety two was two thousand eight hundred forty fans year later in November of ninety three three thousand three hundred fans so tendencies up thirteen point nine percent. Your average gate is up seven point seven percent going from thirty nine thousand change to around forty three thousand nine hundred ninety three and your ratings are actually up just a little bit. You went from a one point nine and member of ninety two now to a two point one and over of ninety three. What do you? How do you talk this up? How do you reconcile this? Where it does feel like you're getting some confusing information, obviously weaken sort of tip the hat to the mailing list. Is that being a reason that it was very successful for selling tickets for this event? But it does feel like businesses on the downturn. But when you look at a microcosm of the numbers to the tell the true story, or is it not really painting the accurate picture of where businesses now it was selling the true story for me. It felt like it hit just maintained. There wasn't a lot of growth. It just there was a sameness to it in. There was. Just no growth didn't feel like the audience was the roading. Each just weren't getting you weren't getting those pops. You know, you weren't getting the jumps. So. I don't know it it it felt like for that year. It was just the same. It was even keel. Let's talk a little bit about what's going on around the company. Macho man Randy savage is still with it every VF, but hulk HOGAN is gone by this point. And there's a new program in town called WWF radio or radio WBF where good old JR it's hosting the show, and we've talked about this before believe on our wrestlemainia non episode. Maybe it was the macho man upset, I don't know. All the episodes are available at something wrestle dot com. The cove oast for this radio show on this particular day with JR is Johnny polo is going to go on to be the future raven. Both those guys have podcast today should check out the raven effect. And of course, the Jim Ross report, but he's doing a. The interview here with Randy savage and Randy gifts all over hall Cogan. And Meltzer says this isn't a work quote. The most intriguing aspect of all this is the HOGAN was asked a few days earlier to appear on the show, although never informed that savage would be on. Our what subject matter was planning being planned for the show? Apparently, there was a well laid out plan to ambush and unknowing HOGAN with Savage's comments in a public forum HOGAN who had done the same radio show two weeks prior apparently had a premonition something was up since it was awfully quick the asked back onto a radio show for a company he was no longer working for or simply was busy and lucked into not being in a potentially embarrassing position. It should be noted. It was pretty obvious the way savage, Jim Rawson Johnny polo or interacting during the segment that all three knew what was about to be said Ross before bringing savage on as a guest noted that he would be saying things that you won't believe and later made comments that some of the things he would be saying you'll be reading about tomorrow morning in the sports pages of your newspaper. Although at press time, no newspap-. For had acknowledged the interview. Although I suspect the comments to make the wrestling columns and the few newspapers have them it's clear from the television promotion of the show that Ross is working very hard to garner publicity for his radio vehicle and a few weeks back. Ross was able to get the green live from Vincent man to be more controversial on the show and talk about other promotions. So before we talk about what JR and Randy savage talked about chat me up about why this was a big deal to JR. What opportunity vents thought it represented and McMahon who normally never acknowledged anybody? That's always been his MO when you're number one. You don't acknowledge number two. I phone doesn't talk about Android chat me up here. Why did Vince? Okay. This and what was the value proposition for Vince McMahon's WWF to have this WBF radio show is more exposure invinci-? Was looking to try and create something with through another medium in the radio show was produced by guy by the name of Brad, Saul who had the radio network that we were on Brad. Saul was one who founded the. Podcast dot com or some web talk radio web talkradio, which is where I had my very first podcast. Really nice guy that. Ran out of Chicago in Vince water day. He wanted a radio show. He wanted something else. And also Jim Ross had come from Atlanta with his radio show. It was something more for Jim to do. Let him do radio. Let him get out. Let's have a talk show and be controversial. Let us be the ones to break the stories break, the news versus the people that didn't work within the business. We're just reporting the gossip and Rover. So let's talk about it as well. No than wrestling that what savage said on the show echo things. He's been saying the dressing room dating back to the period shortly after his divorce in the summer of nineteen ninety two HOGAN was very protective of McMahon. Whenever the subject came up and has publicity tour for Mr. nanny and whatever in an item in the new York Daily News gossip section last week. It said the HOGAN would be meeting shortly with Ted Turner about starting up a new wrestling company. And it is believed the item wasn't planted by HOGAN side, did turn down an invitation to appear on W W to plug as movie, and here's the comments from savage. Have you heard the name hulk HOGAN, the five-time while wrestling federation champion Okocha became at one time. The biggest superstar in the history of professional wrestling personally used to look up to whole Cogan. But that was a big mistake early thought, he was a friend. But he's definitely not he's the worst premadonna of ever met in my life Cogan Zego so far control that hulk HOGAN. Consumed Terry Belaya, which is his real name. Let's just say I've lost a lot of respect for whole Cogan aka Terry Belay, both as a man and as a human being that's an extreme understatement. That I'm saying right there a lot of people out there might be thinking, it's professional jealousy, but putting professional jealousy Assad. If there is any which I'm not saying there is I lost respect for hulk HOGAN, big-time number one. When he completely lied on. Our senio hall denying the use of anabolic steroids except for the rehabilitation of an injury. And then JR asks the question savage. Have you used Royds and he acknowledges yes, I have used anabolic steroids. And when I was on our senio hall told the people I did, but they were legal. It's like putting poison in your body and savage is asked if he uses them now. No, I sure don't nobody does and the WB F. But at the same time, I was asked about it. I told the truth it was prevalent at the time not just in wrestling. But in all sports, baseball basketball, football, you name it. It was there. It was in the gyms, and it was legal at the time before we keep rolling here. You have to talk with Vince about discussing steroids public like this, especially given everything that's going on. Right. The subject was out there. Everybody else was talking about it. That was part of Vince strategy was rather than have everyone else. Talk about it. We'll talk about it. And we'll get our story out and be honest about it, the probably one of the biggest things apparently that did hit the company was the Arsenio hall show. And I think everybody goes back to that of when hulk said he didn't use steroids on our senio hall that backlash hurt in stung for a while. There were a lot of people that were upset over that, particularly Randy savage. I wasn't in the company at the time when that happened. So I don't know firsthand. What that general feeling was at the time. However, I remember the after-effects in Vince talking about we're still reeling from those comments. He wanted to get his story out there that we were going to do with the WWF radio, so savage knowledge is that he knew HOGAN was going to lie on the show, and he encouraged not to and just be honest and told in the world was more forgiving quote. He went on our senio hall and lied. He lied big time. He heard himself. I'm not worried about him hurting himself though. But he heard all of the world wrestling federation. Because like I said before he was a leader. He was a big time five time world wrestling federation champion. So when he talks people, listen. Fair to say, I mean, you're sitting there saying that Vince has said that man, we're still reeling from those comments. It wasn't leader. And it did it absolutely reflected back on us. And I had been told Vince everyone encouraged him just go out and tell the truth, and because when he did take them it was legal, and it was being prescribed by doctor for him. So again, all of those different things that people forget about. It just was it was not a good choice in my opinion. And it hurt the company. I think it hurt hulk for a while. And we were still getting through it. But Vince wanted to get his side out there wanted to have a true voice versus going through a third party, like a reporter or another talk show like that. Let me ask you this realistically, we talked about this before. But heading not said what he said on our senio, what would have been different. I think that it would have blown over a whole lot faster. Because at that point you take the gun out of their hand. When you say, yes, I did it. It was legal. Here's why I did it. I don't do it anymore. But yeah, I sure did and it probably contributed to to my size. And it probably helped me a lot of ways. Great recoup powers all that other stuff. But yes, I did it now. People can't go back in say h extent will. Yeah. He did he already admitted it. But now when you say, no, I didn't take steroids. You lied. All. Right people go back. And now they have that to say, no, he's a liar. Fuck camp. We lied and everything else. It kills the credibility. Go going forward with everything else and believe the audience would have forgiven him and would have route actually would have rallied around him. Because he was hulk HOGAN. Had that power. Let's talk about more Randy's doing onscreen because he's been sort of in the ring out of the ring. I'm an announced her. I'm a wrestler, but on the Tober eighteenth, raw he is involved in an angle to help turn crush, he'll crushes rock and a beard and a mustache. And he's got Mr. foods you with him. And he's yelling Randy savage about being jealous that crushes started a surpassing so savage gets on the ring and they're going to try to talk about their problems. But as they leave the ring crush, jumps savage, and then press slams drops him on the rail and savage juices directly from the observer and from the mouth and then crushed destroys him in the ring with Fuji, Jim cornet watching and yokozuna gifts savage a banzai to finish the job. Now, most people remember crush came into the company as the third member of demolition and then eventually returned as a baby face. What you've talked about loving. She has been yet. So over in Hawaii. Wii he's crush or Kona crush, but he's gonna leave again. And now come back here as a heel. Why did you guys the Sida turn crush? He'll and how in the hill did Randy savage become a part of it. This wanted to get crush over down looking at big bastard. Wise over Randy took that as a challenge that I'll get him over. So Randy in in Brian will really good friends. Randy felt that crush had all the potential in the world in just had been programmed with the right guy yet. So Randy really felt that he could get crush over and wanted to work a program with them, which bins obliged thought. Maybe the the shock bra on the friendly smiling coconut crushing crush was to baby faces in two to one sided. So the thought will help us make them a heat big nasty he'll and put him with Randy and see if that'll get him over. But the Genesis of it was Vince being frustrated that wise this big bastard getting over in Randy said, I'll get him over. Okay. Let's go. In real life. What was their relationship line, crush and savage? Randy and crush were best friends they would travel together they trained together, and they they were best friends. So they were always always talking about things ideas. Fair to say that he was trying to help us buddy get over. He was he definitely was it is why volunteer because he wasn't working fulltime at the time. It was announced in mid October. That Tokyo sports was reporting. The WEF is going to do a handful of shows in Japan in April of ninety four and McMahon was reported as saying they wouldn't be working with Japanese office. But would be using Japanese wrestlers, and he's going to be going to Japan for a press conference to make the announcement for the shows, and it's believe they're going to be indoor shows and like ten to fifteen thousand seat arenas, allegedly war in the WBF for putting back to. Together, their old working relationship and Kia Sato was that the November eleventh show cork and hall and announce that tin rue and the great kabuki and one other war arrest. There would be appearing at the Royal rumble. And Meltzer would freestyle this likely reciprocation for the war top wrestlers being booked on top when the WB f- towards Japan in April chat me up here. What can you tell us about you guys wanting to do some shows in Japan, but we're not going to work with all Japan, a new Japan with the big players. And instead we're going to do something with war. Well, we were looking we had found out through other co promotions with the Japanese promotions that so much of what they what they do when you hear about these huge houses and all my God. There were so many people in the Tokyo dome of there was so many people here what they leave out is that those shows for the most part are sponsored in the sponsor has the tickets and the sponsor normally gives the tickets away the show that we had in the Tokyo dome with all Japan and do Japan, the sponsor was optometrist company. They do I glass is kind of like lens crafters here will how you got your tickets was you had to go by this lens, Crafter, whatever it was the equivalent in Tokyo doing exam go in there to get your free tickets for the dome, and that's how you got. Tickets. Yes, they also sold tickets as well. But the majority of the tickets were dispersed by sponsors. And that's how people would get these for the big events, and we discovered this because we got into the mock of the financials of why how are we going to split this gate? This weather is no gate because people don't buy tickets. They they get their tickets through sponsors. The money comes from the sponsor, but they didn't wanna share that sponsor money. So it was it was a convoluted deal that Vince said, you know, we don't need a Japanese promotion to go in and do these. They wanted to see one of the big criticisms was from the wrestling fans in Japan was they didn't wanna see WWF guys against new Japan or all Japan, guys. They wanted to see the WWF product right now they wanted. He wanted the shit. They're seeing on TV. And they had been we had always been told by because you're working with another group. Well, it's gotta be against our guys real she won't draw. So this was Vince is again, another test to see all right? Let's see how we do on our own. We are going to need some names in Japan. But let's see how we mainly do promoting our ourself with our angles with our stuff in not using all Japan or ban. I found this to be an interesting tidbit in late October and early November savvy wrestles a couple dark matches as a triumph for the company and the first one he wrestled Scott Taylor is going to go on to be Scotty to haughty and on the second one. He wrestles own heart and Meltzer would say as a result of these trials. He's actually offered a job, but wound up turning it down because it would have required him to give up his FM w gig Japan, which allegedly was for more money tat me up. What are you? Remember about seven having a try out here in ninety three because it is really really hard to imagine him coming in and working for you guys full-time, and how that may have affected AC w because he was obviously their first major draw. Well, I don't even think e c w was was a factor at this point. And no, I didn't mean that it would have taken him away from them. Then I just mean, how would he CW future have been different if they had to go? Forward with no Sabbath. Because now he's working with you guys. And what might that of looked like, you know, a lot of hard core fans, really loved Jin's, Asians, Ocoee who was wrestling for you guys. She and his match with Bret Hart, and you know, what would that have looked like savvy versus breadth Sabbath versus Shawn Michaels. I know it didn't happen. But it is fun to think about sure it is. And I think that Sabah would have been a hell of a addition to the roster at that time. But it was I don't think that it was the right time for him. He did have his FM w stuff. He was making good money. And plus he was listening to his uncle who helped him make business decisions and is on the chic the original chic did not feel. It was best for his. Career the time to come into the WWF. So he stayed with Japan. I think he did all right between pan and wwl has years. But yeah, you're right. Imagine the matches you had with Sean booth and brat. Sambu undertaker just go on down the line just didn't work out because again grass was greener on the other side. Tammy up. How was? Powell sadly, received like what did what that Vince think of Sabah what did path think of Sabah? What was your take on Sabah? When this guy has got a lot of underground buzz on the independence and people are saying he's crazy, and he's breaking these tables. But obviously, he's got a legacy in the business. There was on cool chat me up. What was the take inside the office about salvo? Well, we'd heard and again that he he didn't have quite that reputation at the time. I just seen him because he looked like he looked like a younger version in a modern day version of the chic, and we didn't have that type of a he'll he looked medecine in. He had a look of a of a nasty he'll that you could program with just about anybody. We were looking for talent that could work with lexin that anti-american role. He had he and talent he being Sabbath. So we just want him. I think everybody liked him from talents standpoint. But it just wasn't a fit at the time. I mean, this was this was before there were any wild. Crazy. Silly stories about him out there. Glenn Jacobs is another guy whose name pops up. He was getting a tryout and he'd been working and Florida independence as sid powers. And. Worked at Memphis as doomsday. And I think even was briefly the Christmas creature. Of course, we know Glenn Jacobs is going to go onto became, but I guess eventually he's going to be the mayor to mentioning, but I he's going to be an evil dentist a couple years after this. What do you remember about early? Reporting on Glenn Jacobs trial matches. He doesn't wind up getting a gig right here. Why was it not the right fit for him? Glenn was greater than grass Glenn was greener than the Christmas tree outfit that he wore as the Christmas menace, or whatever the hell he was Christmas creature in Memphis, Tennessee, which was hilarious and every time that that picture would surface. We kind of put up around the the dressing room for the Christmas creature, which was a green. Unitards basically head to toe with tinsel and balls hanging from it. So it was it was kind of funny. He was just very very green. And Jerry Jarrett had promoted him as the second coming of sid vicious. He looks just like seeing and his work is as good. I you could bring him and put him right on top. So we brought him in take a look at him. And he did have great look. I mean, big bastard. But he was he was not ready for prime time. And we needed to get him little more experience and getting kind of down on the farm before we ready to bring him in. But we like the size there was potential. Plus, he was a super nice guy on top of that. So there was something there like, you know, we didn't have the developmental. We didn't have performance center, which has had places like Memphis, where we could send him or some place that had a school in someplace that they could work every day. That's that needed to happen with Glenn. It's time Glenn was going to be one of the an and he was actually in Boston to be one of the nights under the mask, which will get to here in. I have that my notes and I wanted to ask and I'm glad you wanna head and brought it up chat me up. Why didn't that happen because he just was? He was just to green just way too green. He was not even a year in the business. I don't think at that time. Didn't really know. Why did you bring them up there? If you knew it was too green. Because we didn't know we needed bodies. But are that way? And which just did. No, we didn't know how greenie was even at that point. Rather have in the not have him just in case. Let's talk about how show business Meltzer would report on November first they debuted the B-team shows this past week. And the reports were they drew poorly as in less than a thousand folks because they're working with local charities a lot of normal costs of running show or removed. The eighteen was loaded up shows those reportedly for their debut in Amherst, Massachusetts only around fifteen hundred fans, but they excellent and Pittsburgh ninety eight hundred fans for one hundred nineteen thousand dollar gate pretty good in Baltimore the next day. And then fair in Hershey on Sunday to wrap up the weekend. The eighteen crowds over the weekend range from poor in Detroit only seventeen hundred fans to really good in Nassau Coliseum. Ten thousand three hundred fans paying a hundred and sixty grand this stuff is fascinating to me, Bruce because it feels like you're either hot or not depending on what town you're in. Well, that was just a case of which which town was hot. And what the hell? Going on in those towns too. So it was you've got geographical challenges you have to work with and frankly, some people in a WWE stronghold, they they were buying everything. In in in not a particularly stronghold they were kinda shitting on it. Is this? I mean at the time you've got some guys who are still hangovers from you know, the heyday on HOGAN was on top. And you know, you guys are selling out way in advance. And now you've got some rather anemic. How shows any of those guys maybe being a little negative. I think that everybody gets negative when the houses are down money's down people start to point fingers and say, well, what the hell is going on here. It was the sign of the times. I don't know that WCW was doing any business. Nobody was doing business at that time. But we were the big dogs. We were most noticeable and it hurt it hurt when you got out there because were were booking. Everything that we've got on television were we've brought Lawler in and thought, okay, this is gonna help business. Some in just did it was it was a snake bit time of of year in our ideas, just weren't hitting. Let's talk a little bit about the show and the be show difference for years and years. We've heard that well of Hogan's on the car, that's the issue. But now Hogan's gone, so the show here the shows that are drawing better are being headlined by Brent heart and Jerry Lawler. The B shows are being headlined by undertaker and yokozuna in those shows are only doing eight hundred to fifteen hundred or night. How did you? What was what was the be as far as talent? We would just pretty much divided up and look at it in the shows. There's different ways to look at the aim be shows as well as show was usually a top market like a New York, Dallas, Chicago and LA in a B show would be a secondary market that had a smaller population, for example, Louisville would be a be show. It's just because of the population. So they would you'd still wanna give them a good card. You'd still wanna give them the best main event you can. And it was take you to top take you to top angles in issues. You split them up and one's going to the main ones going to the secondary. If businesses great. At the time. Then both of those shows are gonna do fairly equal business. It's just a matter of population to draw from is what would term the aim be town. But lot of times it would just be two different cards, even it up and go. When it wasn't like we had that. The big main attraction at the time. It wasn't just didn't have that. We were building. We were building Lugar. We were building. Brett, we were building undertaker. And none of those guys were at the standalone top star, you know, megastar. Everybody's just gonna come see them, do whatever they wanna do that. Steve Austin got to rotgut to undertaker got too. But they weren't there yet. We weren't there yet. I mean, do you. Remember anybody requesting, you know, back in the day. We would hear or Goss who were what we'll call underneath on the card. They would really want to be on the HOGAN card does that even exist here for nineteen Ninety-three since he's gone. Is there a preference one way or another? Where guys think I want to be with on that card because if that guys there, I'll make more money, or is it just based on, you know, whoever they're travelling buddies are are there even requests like that not really during this time, they just want to be at their buddies for the most part. Let's talk about Medusa here. She accepted an offer and Vancouver and comes into the company and December. And of course, we know she's going to go on to be known as a lunch or blaze haven't talks about Medusa a lot here on the show chat me up. How does she get on WBF's radar who was a proponent of signing her? And what do you remember putting that together? I believe JJ Dylan put the deal together and got her in. But she had been sending tapes in for longtime. That was another. Case ah Paul Heyman. Getting me tapes and saying, hey, Medusa 's looking to make a move and do something different. So Vince wanted to. By God, get the women's division going again in Medusa was the answer to that change. Your name did the lender. Blais stuff went down to Tampa, Florida shot a bunch of internet's with her on her little pink Harley motorcycle. And we built her up is is the second coming in. As kind of like, Ronda Rousey is now that's what we wanted to do with the lender. Blaze back then and build up and did a lot of in yet s- to bring her in also bringing in bold Meccano from Japan. So that she would have a big nasty foreign healed work with and we knew they would have great matches and something that people had not seen before in the women's division. Nice addition when you guys decide to sonner is this one of those let's flyer to New York letter with vents bills. I don't remember she met with Vince or not I remember I remember going down and doing the vignettes. I did the vignettes by myself. In tampa. But I don't remember she came up and met with Vince or nod or if it was all done with JJ signed her, and let's go. I talked about steroids quite a bit here on the show. But I do want to bring up that news day a long island-based daily newspaper. Ran a three page story with a page one photo on the investigation of the WB f of course, centering around the steroids story, and here's what MSA wrote actually the biggest surprise in that story, which was released nationally on the wire services the next day and was the subject of an unfunny Saturday Night Live spoof that even evening was even prominently featured. Doc to me about the Saturday Night Live skit, nobody talks about this. But they sort of spoofed this, and I don't even remember it. I don't either what the hell why I don't remember Saturday Night Live skit at all on the steroid trial. So that's. Not saying that they did do. But I don't remember that at all. And at the time everybody was doing something writing something about us and steroids because everybody news coming down in early November, both the ring announcer. Mike mcgurk, and a television interview Bonnie Blackstone were let go and mcgurk was told the company wanted to cut back on transportation expenses. We get lots of questions about Mike mcgurk, any get stories about hurry could share with us. Mike mcgurk was the daughter of legendary wrestler and promoter in Oklahoma. Leroy, mcgurk and her arm gesture Franch but Mike hid put up rings and helped her father in the promotion business. So one day Vince tells me this was my first summer with the WWF. This is your work as talent like well done. A few seconds of color commentary. But I've done all the interviews. I do all the stand up interviews for the local towns. Play by play never done play by play those. Great. We'll put you. As play by play in Houston, and for the some of the cable properties. And I've got a got a surprise for you gonna put you with couple couple of unknowns. But they're gonna be great Duke Dorchester, Pete Nardi as a character. You're gonna love him and Mike mcgirt. She's never done anything like this. You're gonna have to carry your through it. Sucks. Going to carry me through it. I had never done play by play in my life. So the only ones that I really have to base it on is Paul Bosch who didn't really do play by play either politics sold tickets for the next that got Jim Ross who I couldn't emulate in. Then you got vents in. So well WWF I'm gonna patterned myself after vents, and I had to work with with Mike who had never basically spoken into a microphone before much less. Be a color commentator analyst that no one had ever heard of or what credentials she had? So that was a challenge. Then shortly thereafter, we decided to make Mike our first female ring announcer much. She Howard Finkel chagrin. She was ringing ounces. Why do you think? You know, the time was I mean, those time got something else. When it was time for her leave at this point. It was a cost cutting deal. She was only a ring announcer. The other ring announcers that we had were part of the rain crew were part of the production crew. So they were doing double duty. They had other jobs might didn't have another job at that time. So that's why she was cut the same thing with Bonnie Blackstone. It was a cost cutting measure. Let's switch and talk about Bonnie Blackstone talked about her before. Joe Fowler was fired as an announcer and Jim Ross will be taking over doing the face to face segments and Raymond or Joe would ultimately takeover Bonnie Blackstone spot doing the interviews. You were around for a little while when Bonnie was there. Any good Bonnie stories anything interesting, you can share with us about Bonnie Blackstone now body would come in and DT vs. And do a couple of the interviews. I'd known Bonnie from my time at global wrestling. She was the wife of Joe pet Esino who used to pro wrestling syndicated television show, highlighting all of the regional wrestling promotions body was a sweet lady, she's really nice lady. And did a good job. But it was just short lived kind of experiment that Vince didn't feels worth pursuing and and moving on. And then Joe Fowler. Cho- Fowler was on a. It wasn't American gladiators. It was another show like American gladiators that I was watching and I called Vince. Hey, take a look at this guy. He could be I think he could be a pitch man for us you on the Oakland role or maybe even do play by play. I don't know. But take a look at him. So Vincent, I are watching this show. We're both on the phone. I love him get about here. So I find Joe Fowler. And I bring him in. We interview him we do the screen test. We do all that crap with him. We fall in love with him. He can sell like nobody's the oh God. He was great salesman. But the workload of trying to do the event centers, which is you sit in the studio, and man, you are cranking them out for every single market every single week in your throwing all kind it's hard work in. It's a lot of hours in that wasn't for Joe. And he was making we paid him. We basically bought out his contract we paid him a lot of money in comparison to what other people that we would have hired from within. The wrestling business would have made in after about. I don't know five six months vents decided this is not working, and he was complaining about everything and just hit become a nuisance overall because of the workload. It wasn't what he was used to. He was used to going in for three or four weeks doing a show and that being it. Let's let's talk about the SM w layout. You guys did in a WWF magazine. This is the first time Tammy Fitch is in the magazine and choice smothers as their rock and roll express thirty white boy. I know that you guys are working with Jim coronet. Does he request that you guys do feature on smokey mountain d think if you had to guess, or is this probably just somebody at the magazine looking for content. Smokey mountain mother fucker corny, we use it corny as a talent. And we'd brought corny in with midnight express. Not the midnight express the heavenly bodies. He was working with us and bents wanted him to manage yokozuna, which was a fun conversation that took place. But it was just way to spotlight some of those guys because we were going to be using some of the smoky mountain talent. And we wanted to have them as a feeder system for the WWF. So the magazine just feature. Well, let's talk about while we're here. And I'm sure we're going to cover this story a lot more when we do. Jerry Lawler episode one day. I do think he's probably one of the handful of profiles that I wanna do more than others. Just because nobody's got a story. Why Jerry Lawler? Meltzer would report. Jerry Lawler longtime co owner of the United States wrestling association, and one of the most enduring regional headliners in the history of pro wrestling was indicted on November twelve of one count of second degree rape. And three counts of second degree sodomy and one count of harassing a witness Lawler who was scheduled to be arraigned in Louisville on November twenty second was charged by Jefferson County, Kentucky grand jury of the five counts in reference to an alleged encounter with a thirteen year old Louisville girl, he was also being investigated for criminal allegations. And southern Indiana on what are allegedly similar circumstances. I guess we should mention Jerry is forty three at this time. He's going to turn forty four on November twenty nine the world. Wrestling federation faced with its own image problem over many printed allegations of sexually deviant behavior. Among two of his former employees steroids handle and a nearly two year long Justice. Department investigation, which went public and the New York rain stream media with front page. News day story less than two weeks. Prior immediately suspended Lawler without pay upon receiving word Friday of the indictment. Even though he was the company's hottest he'll is mass on November twenty four th the survivor series, pay per view, where he was the team with three unknown mass nights against Bret Owen, Keith and Bruce Hart was considered by most to be the top drawing match on the show. Even though it was positioned by the company a second. From the top company officials announced the next evening on his radio WBF show that Lawler had been indicted on five charges and Louisville and put on a media hiatus from the WB f-, pending clearing up his legal situation. The company on the same show announced that Shawn Michaels will be replacing Lawler and the survivor series and Michaels is expected to be lawler's replacement and many of the advertised how show matches with Bret Hart in the upcoming weeks and some markets. Jeff Jarrett will be replacing and mashes against brat and other markets. Including the early December, California shows lawler's role as a co host on WB superstars as of this coming weekend will likely be taken by Bruce Prichard who use the television name Rio Rogers doing a heel character designed to be a parody of w w Booker dusty Rhodes, lots talk about here. But let's talk about where you were. And what you heard about lawler's legal troubles. Look all I heard was exactly what you read in. Here's where where you always have to be careful because when you're you're involved in things like that. You don't wanna know? Right. You don't want. I'd like the last thing that anyone wanted to do was speak Jerry Lawler, Jerry. What happened? I don't wanna know. I don't wanna hear it because I don't wanna be called as a witness. I want let the court let the investigators and the lawyers and everything do their part do your investigation, and whatever they come up with fine. But it it protects. Vince is funny. When you say, why didn't you know, Vincent, tell me? Why did Vince tell you if you're right next to him to protect me in? That was how he looked at it. And that's how we always operated. If I didn't need to know. I didn't wanna know. I wanna know what was going on in Jerry lawler's life. Because I didn't want somebody come to me and say, hey, Bruce said this Bruce said that so I only knew what was being printed. We didn't discuss it amongst ourselves other than how does it affect business? What do we do we suspended Jerry until the court case, whatever happens happens? And then we'll reevaluate after that. So that was the extent of how we looked at Vincent. I remember sitting in there and gone, Jerry. I don't wanna know. I don't wanna know. But I can't have you on TV. I can't use you. Go home get this straightened out. Do what it is you need to do to fix this. And if you get it fixed, everything's fine. Come back. Your job will be here. But if I can help you in any way with an attorney, but I can't help you with advice here anything else. I don't I don't need to know. What did or didn't happen? Don't want to know a lot of. A lot of people in wrestling have. And the insinuation that. The Memphis territory had a reputation for underage girls, right or wrong. A lot of people have made that inference. Would you echo that? I mean that you heard the same thing not saying that it's true. But that the whispers in the locker room amongst the boys behind the curtain was that Memphis had a bit of a reputation in that regard. Absolutely. Yeah. Did and I did hear that. I never worked the Memphis territory for for Lawler Jarrett. So again, it's. It's all hearsay rumor and innuendo, and that's one of those things that okay, everybody. Here's everybody talks about in whispers about it. But it may just be a rumor and innuendo, and it is what it is. That didn't help his case. Right. Exactly. Right. So people are talking whispering because there was already smoke there. When this comes up up, you know, you're you're guilty until proven innocent. Well, let's. Let's talk about the decision to use Jeff Jarrett as a replacement why Jeff the right guy to step in and take Lawler spot. It was for how shows and it was just something to to get out there. I think we had already started the Jeff Jarrett vignettes on TV by this time. So people knew of him, and it was somebody new that Bret could have a good match with and. That was it. He, you know, he filled he filled out that space on the card. Talk to me about wash on Michael's is the right guy to headline the paper. Of course, this is before I mean, they had a match at the price of our series Brenton, Sean, but this is before Brenton show on is really a thing. Why was why was he the right guy? And what would he have done on this show had he not filled in for Lawler by answer? Last question. I he wouldn't have done anything on the show because we had been doing a suspension gimmick with him over the intercontinental championship. And all that the reason that we chose Sean is whenever you have a substitution insists specially a substitution one of your top marquee matches. You always try to make the substitution better than the original. If that is at all possible because you wanted deliver you want to over deliver to your audience. It's possible. That's what you do. So we bit the bullet and said, okay. Well, we'll end this Sean stuff. And you know, here's Sean he's there he can work. We can use him. He's the best choice of a name that we had available to us to put into that role. So that's why we did it. All right. Our most requested thing real fucking Rogers. Jeez. That cannot be our most requested. Now, they get hit with this three times a day. A lot of people want to hear the story of how this came to be mouth or even wrote in the newsletter. Doing a heel character designed as a parody of WCW Booker dusty Rhodes, tell me how whose idea was obviously you had been doing the dusty impression around the office and around the guys for a long time. It really tight with Vince at this point. How do you become the on air character? Why are you the choice and when Vince talks to you about doing that? Or do you pitch yourself to do it? How does it sort of morph into this Rio Rogers persona kind of like he thumb times? I would just go into the dream baby than just they will live in with gonna do this. How we live among and I would I would drop into I do it. Thanksgiving around strangers. I'll just go into dusty. Because all they will death that they write him. How redact look at pumpkin Pab. Just you know, I fall into dusty. He's easy to fall into giving living at whipped cream mega with foamy, babe. I love you, darling. I did that a lot Jerry Jarrett who would sit in with us from time to time on creative. Would he just would get tickled at that age that was the funniest thing he'd ever heard? And and why don't you do a character that boys, and my thing was I'm doing dusty? It's not a voice, it's motherfucking dusty Rhodes, you know, like, I'm just I created a voice, you know, kinda like clan from cozy. Yes, I read all observes this late. It's not a voice I created. It was it was due a dusty. So he stayed on state on. And when this happened we had no one else to just slide in to do this in Jerry Jarrett pitched events, I should do this real Rogers character. I hated it. Hey, hey, hey, hey, hated it. And they're very few things that I ever actually I never refused to do anything, including rea- Rogers. But real Rogers was probably the one thing that I balked at and said, Vince, I don't wanna do this. And it was a way to like, hey, Jerry. We took your idea. Okay. On Vinson's part to me. It was it's a shitty idea. It's not an original character. I'm doing rip off of dusty. And then to go further if you want me to go further with and I'll do a caricature of of the rip off of dusty and go way the fuck over the top with it. But no matter what I do. It's going to be there doing dusty. You can't you can't we started like baby game Fung among real Roger that. He. My whole trigge gale gale pull my whole phone up. Yeah. Yeah. Maybe you doing that. But talking about the man dream dusty Rhodes. Is I get it. But we'll do it in a work. And with me we can play off each other. Like, we do normally. Okay. But how do I you know on cameras? What do I do? That's what we came up with the the FU Manchu, I didn't shave and I put on a fake moustache because I couldn't grow a moustache couldn't sure sow couldn't grow moustache in whatever weeks time. So I had a fake FU Manchu moustache instead of cowboy hat a war baseball cap backwards. A war Terry Funk's chaps those were my shops Pritchard dusty stole those for me. And then he gave them to you. And you gave them to Tom, but they're mine, and I don't know where the it actually bents was last person that wore them. And it was just silly. It was fucking stupid it. It was terrible and I called dusty. And I said, hey dream just won't let you know. Going to be doing a character characters names, Rio Rogers. I am going to portray this character real Rogers, and he's going to sound an awful lot. Like you. Plummeted. You do what it is. You think you need to do? I said, well, this is not my dear. But out of respect to you. I if you said, Bruce, don't do it that would probably carry a lot of weight with bents, and he wouldn't do it. Goes you do what it is you need to do make your family if the money if you begging fan at the money it making fun of me, then go for some not making fun of you. It's a parody. And he just kept telling me, you know, do it just do it. Do what you're gonna do? Tove events. This is dusty reaction. Great. He loves it. I got he's gonna love this rose. It we did it and it positively fucking sucked. There was no rhyme or reason to it was difficult to do color with that character that voice. And after you've seen at once the jig is up. Right. It's not entertaining. The second time, it's not funny. It's a cute. It's just monotonous. So that's it's I just say it sucked would be an understatement. And I hate critiquing myself that sucked. Bad a read the other day that. Cody Rhodes, absolutely hates when anybody does dusty impression. And whenever someone's telling him dusty story, if they start using dusty voice, he just walks away. And he says the only two people who he thinks have good dusty impression are you in Paul Heyman. Here's what I wanna know. Can we have you do a dusty impression as Paul Heyman? I know I just went. The fuck KOMO. Well, sir, if heaven of no, he then I go into mind thing that you will serve that is not how he says he says get funky like a monkey serve my may have gone. My god. It's like inception of impressions isn't not. Yeah. That's that's God. Bruce doing Paul do industy. Yeah. That would be I don't know. I could do that. And I also don't know if I've ever heard Paul do dusty. And always whenever I would greet when Cody came in. I would always great Cody as good avenue code, Ron Runnells junior. The on the fourth day, if you will babe is in that's always coded ratted frontal junior the phone or the thicket. Whatever number you won't be gone with it.

He is going to continue to wrestle for the US W A in Memphis and the rest of the territory with the exception of Louisville course, where the alleged incident took place this is directly from the observer both Lawler and the girl a front row regular at the matches describe Lawler and others as a groupie that the indictments are related to have been. Banned by the management of the Louisville gardens from the building for at least the past several weeks when police informed management of the investigation and potential charges. The second degree rape charge, which is statutory other than a force rape charge along with three second degree sodomy charges are felonies and carry possible prison sentences of five to ten years apiece. The harassment of a witness charge is a misdemeanor with a maximum sentence of one year in prison and a five hundred dollar fine. This is something I never thought I would talk about on a wrestling podcast. But when they're saying second degree sodomy they're referring to oral sex. The grand jury indictment on the four felony charges are related to alleged encounters in Louisville hotel rooms on June sixth. Angela seventh of this year. They harassment charge alleged that on October fourth Lawler, quote engaged in misleading or unlawful conduct intended to dissuade a person who he believes may be. Called as a witness from causing a criminal prosecution to be salt or instituted in quote. According to story in Saturday's Louisville courier journal, the charges not related to the alleged victim, the sex crimes Lawler has been indicted for but related to a fourteen year old girl who may have been the first person to go to the thirties related to these charges. So this thing is this is real deal. Trouble here for Jerry Lawler. Are you guys? How are you keeping up with any information or any sort of up dates are you just getting it from the newsletters or somebody in the office getting reports from the police department are you following the local paper attorney to attorney. Okay. Attorney to attorney, and we had, you know, the attorneys would inform of would inform us if there was something to be informed about you know, we we heard all this stuff, but we didn't dive deep into it. And the attorneys kept in touch with attorneys in kept everybody abreast. I. The -tective Mike Redmond of the city county crimes against children unit said no force was used. But the charges were brought because of the girls age the age of consent in Kentucky is only sixteen whereas it's eighteen and most of the rest of the country. So they run a television news report on a CBS affiliate and Louisville on Friday night. And it was centered around testimony to the grand jury, and they were talking about the two alleged incidents in Louisville on June six July, seventh those third incident in Indiana on may twenty six and the television report focused on the testimony of one of the two girls who reportedly told the grand jury, quote as soon as we walked in the lawler's room. He said, let's get naked. We took off all of our clothes and got into bed and we had sex while we were watching cartoons, according to the testimony after the alleged encounter Lawler took the two girls to value city and Taco Bell. A total of seventeen people, including Jerry Lawler were called testify on Friday and that led to the five indictments which took the grand jury just ten minutes to vote on. Not good news here. According to grams report a second wrestler Bill Martin who formerly worked for the US w as young stallion Bill. Marino was also linked to the case and testimony. But he wasn't indicted and outside of the courtroom Lawler was interviewed by the station, saying the king is fighting back. The king not gonna take this lying down the girls were lying and Lawler told reporters that he had a taped television or telephone conversation, but she says what exonerate him. I'm sure we're going to cover this and and more detail on the Lawler episode, but this initial testimony and hearing that there's going to be this indictment. I mean immediately. I mean, they only deliver deliberated ten minutes before they say, oh, yeah. When into press forward on this. This has to be something that has everyone in wrestling on notice not just Lawler. But I mean, this is going to have ripple effects throughout the entire industry. What are not? I I would think so. Think that people are looking at it going what first of all what the hell, but second of all if there were those rumors and innuendos and different things that were going on in different parts of the country that yeah, maybe need to clean up your act a little bit. And I think that that was a wakeup call for a lot of people. So there's a phone call between Jerry Lawler and white Keller that gets picked up in the news where Lawler said something like this was a situation where couple of young wrestling groupies were bragging about some supposed sexual conquest to some friends of theirs, and it snowballed from there, and as it was related from one person to another and my name was dropped in among other names as having been with these girls and Lawler told Wade h and every one of these allegations are false, they'll be proven false and a quarter law. This is a case of a couple of girls who are wrestling groupies. He told another party about supposed sexual conc. This party went to thirties the thirties, then came to me, I volunteer to tell my side of the story to grand jury when I was in front of the grand jury. I think to tell my side of the story and what I know about the situation. If it were you would you have. Continued to put yourself on television. Not in a in a news story type away. But I mean, he's still on US wwl TV he still working the shows. In your opinion. Good move, bad move, in my opinion. I wouldn't have put no I wouldn't have continued to be on television. And I would wanna get it behind me as quickly as possible. But I wouldn't put myself out there to be in a fictitious story line that is perceived as real no, I wouldn't have done that nor would I've spoken to newspapers or hurt sheet such as a lawyer, do it all and because unfortunately, there's not a lot no matter what you say or do at some point. It comes back to bite you. And that's what people don't understand. Sometimes man. Let it go. If gets to the legal point where you're dealing with lawyers and also the shit. Let them do the talking go on your money. Tammy up about the way. This changed perceptions Lawler within the company, and then he said Vince was just sort of throwing his hands up saying, I don't wanna know, go fix it. And if you get settled, no problem come back. He still relatively new in the company, but we've heard a lot of guys, you know, didn't have the best experience working that Memphis territory, and allegedly when he comes in some guys are wanting to stop his crown other guys wanna take shit in the hat when this comes out this feels like something where maybe the office is sorta tight-lipped, but the boys are going to have a field day with the story or not. Probably. So, you know, but Vince is the type of person that he is going to judge you on how you treat him and how you work with him one on one he doesn't take a lot of things, you know, especially rumored innuendo. He doesn't take a lot of that into account. He judge someone on a one on one basis and how they deal in this environment. Not how they deal outside in a different environment. So people get the benefit of the doubt with dense. And that's what he was doing Lawler. Lawless attorney, of course, is pushing that, you know, this is all trumped up make believe from the thirteen year old Louisville girl and her mother who was the third party. That Lawler was referring to. After the arraignment Lawler, of course, pled not guilty there to all five charges. None of the charges were dropped. So he post-bonn only thousand bucks, and then he returns to Memphis for largely positive press. Which I think in hindsight, it's kinda shocking. But that's what happened and later in an interview with the pro wrestling torch. He said that he expected the charges to be dropped very quickly as soon as the next day. So it's written in the observer that the WB f- officials have decided that Lawler would return to both his wrestling and announcing duties with the group if or when he's absolved of all charges, just as you said, but with word throughout wrestling on Sunday sort of circulating that Lawler had already been cleared. The talk was that he might be back for survivor series after all and a lot of this comes out because what the young lady says this. Never happened. Just got blown on proportion. And when she tried to stop the prosecution, the authorities did not want to that didn't wanna hear the truth. And Meltzer would say a press time Louisville station had already taped an interview with the older brother of the alleged victim, which the station was taking the lawyers to the side weather, not air since the older brother was still under eighteen and Massey. Says that Lawler had given the girl and her mother nothing in exchange for the statement. And the no civil suits had been filed in either direction, and there was absolutely no monetary stuff settlement. So this afield this feels like a sort of false alarm here. When you guys here, you know, prematurely lawler's been cleared, and it does look like these charges are going to go away is there consideration of reintroducing him back into survivor series or at that point since you've pivoted to show on. We're going to see three no matter what we'd already made the pivot. We're just gonna. See it through and then bring Jerry back to bring him back right immediately. After we first of all we need to make sure that everything was dropped. And there were no pending charges that weren't gonna come back with some other charged later on. So we had already made the change to Sean. We didn't want flop back and forth and back and forth. There was consideration of making Lawler one of the nights, you know, put him in the hood and have it that way. But then decided against it didn't wanna use just yet. As if this wasn't enough. Thank man and titan sports were arraigned on Tuesday morning of ember twenty-third in Brooklyn McMahon, would plead not guilty on all charges and released on a two hundred fifty thousand dollar bond and a trial date was set for may second nineteen ninety four and this comes out. Of course, what we're talking about is the steroid trial the charges against ran were conspiracy to distribute anabolic steroids to defraud the United States food and Drug administration from the period of nine thousand eighty five February of ninety one that was a maximum penalty of five years in prison illegal possession of antibiotics steroids with the intent to distribute that was on October twenty fourth nineteen ninety nine and that had a maximum penalty of three years in prison, and then they were personal fines against Vincent man for both charges for five hundred thousand dollars here. The charges against titan, sports and spirits to distribute anabolic steroids and to defraud the United States, food and drug. Ministration five hundred thousand dollar fine. Illegal possession of anabolic steroids with the intensity tribute again, October twenty four eighty nine a half a million dollar fine and an additional maximum penalty against titan sports for one or both counts forfeiture of the land office building and everything in it. Located at twelve forty one eight main street in Stanford aka titan towers, and the estimated value the office building even back then was nine and a half million dollars. So as if all of this is not enough businesses down your top guy is in trouble for allegedly ripe a thirteen year old. And now, you yourself have been indicted as well as your company, and they wanna boatload of money and to send you to prison and to seize your office is this the worst month in the history of WWF. Wanna good one, man? That's dam. Sure. Bents? We knew the indictment was coming. We just didn't know win in Vince had actually gone down to the federal prosecutor's office and tried to talk to her and say, hey here. I am you want to interview me? You wanna ask me questions? You wanna talk to me? Let's do it. I'm standing here right now. Would you please? Can we set up an appointment? Can we talk now and the prosecute refused to meet with vents refused to set up a time in northern appointment to talk to Vince about these alleged charges that they were working up against him. Now, the shares fuck could go talk to everybody else. But they didn't wanna talk to that. They were accusing them all this yet. So it was it was a very trying time. And and it was a sad time for us with all this the stuff coming down. But you just put your head down and. Move forward. It's all you can do you can sit there and cry about it say, whoa is me. And this is terrible. This is shit's or. Let's take a look at the Royal rumble move on. It's an interesting thing. Man McMahon is going to issue statement. There is Lawler through his lawyers not lawler's or a says the government's prosecutors are quote now trying to make me responsible for what the doctor did. I did no such thing. Of course, he's talking about a hoary in there. He also says quote to turn personal use into a crime. They claim our share at some of those steroids with a friend and that somehow made me a dealer and quote. What's your inside the bubble? But when you see a business, then a little bit Hogan's gone, you know, their top act has indicted on ripe stuff. And now the steroid thing are people thinking, hey, this is the end of WWF. I think that there were quite a few people definitely outside of time sports and outside of the WWF that felt this. This is the the death blow. We're done we're going out of business Hogan's not they're they're going downhill their house shows aren't drawing. They've got one guy that's raping little kids and another guy stripping steroids. Yeah. They're done. I think that was the scuttle, but outside of everything for those that were inside next to it in, you know, especially on the indictment and all of the stuff with steroids. And what the government was doing. And who had actually spoken to the government? You're thinking this is a fucking witch hunt. They have nothing that this. This is crazy. So there was there was a lot of fight in us. It's it's interesting because this is really the first time that I think a lot of us had Jerry mcdevitt on the radar as McMahon's attorney. And he was quoted in the new York Daily News as saying these charges are quote cockamamie or going back into ancient and revisionist history to fashion and indictment against Vince McMahon. And this story goes everywhere man, NBC ABC ESPN CNN, prom lov, obviously, it's all over New York. It's on stuff like the New York Post, even on the rags like inside edition, and people are being quoted, and everybody's got an opinion on this, of course, including Ken patera or Hase's everybody used Reuters. And if you didn't use them, you couldn't work for Vince, McMahon creek Peter's affair wrestling. Illustrated says I don't know if McMahon gave wrestler steroids, but there wasn't implicit message about the big. The bodies the more impressive the physique. The better chance you have for getting a job with the WWF and ultimate warriors even quoted assignment man never told him to use aero. It's but the road schedule and pressure to maintain the ultimate warrior character encouraged him to take advantage of every edge, including steroids. And of course, Vince is saying essentially, hey with everybody who's worked for me. And it didn't go. Well, you know, they're no longer work for me. There'd be Lana Gossen. Yeah. He did it to me too. And it has happened. This is the most challenging thing that's ever hit the company, and obviously we've covered it in our archives something to wrestle dot com. But we're back to sort of where we started at the beginning of this show. A lot of the centers around ho Cogan, the new York Daily News names him as the unidentified performer known to the grand jury who allegedly was supplied anabolic steroids from titan sports and Vincent man between on or around March in eighty March of eighty eight and our Tober of eighty nine and we've covered that in our cops. If you wanna go check it out, but. I mean at this point are you thinking? My need to update my resume. No. Because we felt that you know, we were making all the inroads roads to continue on in. Vince wasn't closing the company shutting down was never an option. The to plan for events where to go into. The pen for a few years. Yeah. We discussed that we discussed. Everybody would continue to do their jobs, and Linda would assume the the role is the head of the company, but that everyone else is just expected to do their jobs in the roles that they were hired to do. So that was. That was easy. That's what we were doing. And we just kept her head down. And the the vision the goal was to keep the company opening continue to do business. Let's talk about staying lane of the midnight, express and fabulous ones, tag-team fame. He was brought in as an announcer during this time. How does that come to be? And how do you think he did? Stan came up and stand hid been part of the heavenly bodies was the heavenly body the new midnight express. I don't even remember which but STAN had retired from active wrestling and the ad good luck and good gift gap. Brought stand up to be a possibly a play by play guy. But also a interviewer. He did. Okay. But just wasn't here was this was my favorite, my favorite, STAN lane story, and kind of analogy we would use stand to be the interviewer when we would bring people in for auditions. So for example, you're doing an audition, you do with STAN. And he would interview you after the interview was done STAN would come up like to me or Vance or whoever was doing the audition. How did I do? You've already got a fucking job here here, you know, helping auditions these people, you're fine. But it was always it was a constant. How did I do? How was I look good? Stan was you know, I just don't know that Vince was ever really fond of. Of his work, the FM DJ stuff. I've thought STAN had a great look. And he was different. He was young. He was different. But I think Vince felty was an F M D J guy that. He didn't care for his work. November twenty first you guys did a survivor series showdown. And it went down on the USA network. Of course, it was taped about eleven days prior on November tenth at the feral hall daily New York yesterday these few times for summer slam. I believe if you months priors well chat me up. Why did you stop doing summer slam showdowns survivor series showdown? It's obviously a last minute push to sell pay per views. Was the result. Not what you hope for that. Or not sell enough shows. It was basically situation with the network, and if the network had the time the network was willing to work with us on that time, then we did the shows, and if they weren't sometimes they already had things scheduled that they could move around and we couldn't do. But if there was not pretending to do we would sees it. So champion about Rio's round up on this this showdown spot hair. As where you interview, Sean, Michael. You know, where we're going here is this at the house. Yeah. You make a special visit to the heart house in Calgary, and Sean is discussing his nights. And I was going to get revenge on Brent heart for his loss last year and take out the whole family along the way, and then you guys walk up to the side of the house, and he enters the house, they encounter someone in a female Halloween mask or tending to be Helen heart. You guys walk around sort of taking digs at all the hearts memorabilia thrown around the house, and then they come upon someone sitting in a wheelchair wearing an old, man. Mask and hitman sunglasses pretending to be Stu Hart, Vince, McMahon energetic, and in the segment calls it shameful. So that means he loved it Jammie up. What did you think of this Rios roundup? Skip in front of the heart house at enough shameful. Well, we need we need a last minute go on segment to promote this match. And since it was all last minute stuff. And Shawn's interviews. They were all after the fact after we'd already recorded all our television in everything for this. So influ, Sean up to Connecticut. Went to Howard ankles house because we felt Howard's house was closest to the heart family house in Calgary, and Sean and I on our own. That's what we came up with. We had to get it done very quickly. Get it back to be ended and get it into the show. And what you see is what you get. We busted on the hearts, and we busted on the entire family and got in and got out and got something that could actually make air before the pay per view. So we were happy. Let's talk about survivor series here. I guess we should mention the main of of that showdown is a world title match because they enter defending against Bret Hart. Pretty good match that more than fifteen minutes. Of course, it's going to be a d q. Imagine that on the actual survivor show, which is why we're here, and we're over an hour and a half into the show before we get there. There's a dark match, Billy Gunn pins. The Brooklyn brawler where they sunset flip off the top rope. And I guess this means Billy came in before. Bart right. No, they came into gather, which is put a single match out there and didn't want to tag because we're going to be tagged team matches already with the all the tag matches throughout the night just wanted to do a single match. Your first mass is an elimination match and they're going to twenty six minutes and fifty eight seconds. Got mardi Janetti teaming with the one two three kid razor, Ramon and Randy savage. This is your first match on the pay per view and they're taking on diesel. Rick Martel and atom bomb along with IRAs. Chat me up here. This is a pretty loaded with talent razor Ramon. Randy savage. Have been main vendors diesels, obviously going to be your world champion and a big star. And they're here in the first match, which is interesting. It doesn't get a bad writing. It gets two and three quarters and the observer, and he would sort of recap the mass by saying basically, a good match to start the card off on a positive note. What'd you think I thought it was good? You know, we we had to this day in time that Mr. perfect was out again, and we had to replace perfect with Randy savage with with macho man in this match. It was a good match. The guys all jailed really well. And they made the most out of what they have protected. Diesel didn't have to do a whole lot in there. And it was good. But it was a hell of a way to get the night started off. And as I said, you know, if you're gonna do substitution, you always trying to do substitution with something bigger or better in Randy savage play. Mr. perfect was definitely a bigger and better replacement. This feels like. The plans aren't really set yet for diesel because I know he's going to be world champion, but he's the first guy eliminated here. What's the failing on him at this point? He was a bodyguard, you know. He was he was Shaun's bodyguard. We really didn't know what to do with him yet. It wouldn't be until the next Royal rumble that we featured him and got that feeling of that rumbling. You know with him dominating everybody that we said holy shit. You know, there's something there Kevin was still per game green at this point. So we didn't wanna keep him in there too long and expose him. You protect him. Get him out of the match fairly quickly. Next up. We've got the hearts, Bruce, Keith Bret and Owen taking on Shawn Michaels and the blue Knight the red Knight and the black Knight. Now, of course, they want all the star power here. So the blue Knight as Greg Valentine, they read night as Mary Horowitz and the black. Knight is Jeff Gaylord, go, thirty minutes and fifty seven seconds. I'm gonna I said, Jeff Gaylord, you put your hand over your face too long. It just didn't work. This is Cording to the observer that try to plug Michaels in the Lawler spot and claimed Michaels had been insulting the family all this time. But anyone who watch TV new better? Michael couldn't carry for interest. The knights came off as jobbers and Ray combs as the announcer totally buried, Bruce and Keith to the TV audience acting like they weren't even wrestlers trying to make it out like it was your history teacher over there. Trying to be a wrestler combs was telling jokes on the PA before the show that didn't get over the red. Knight was a rigid. Only supposed to be Terry funk, but funk at the last minute decided to go home when would pin the black ni- and ten minutes forty nine seconds where the drop kick off the top rope. Brett would put the red Knight and the sharpshooter and seven minutes and seventeen seconds. Eventually, you know, what's coming. It's all three hearts are the remaining three hearts versus Michael's Michael's going to take all kinds of great bombs and. Ultimately, this is going to lead to Owen and Bret arguing and Owens gonna turn heel and his mother's gonna start to weep. And we've covered this and our own heart episode, but this match while it is supposed to be, you know, the second most important match or maybe the most important match on the paper view, obviously took a hard left turn here when lawler's out. But the most interesting tidbit of this whole thing to me. Is the Terry funk was supposed to be a night and of all the things a Jerry Lawler tag team with Terry funk was funk in the mix to be a night before was was kicked out of the show. Absolutely. That's tremendous talk me through how the conversation went to bring funk in and then ultimately, why left? We were looking for names. We were looking for some names, it would be surprises as it would be fun. A fun deal to be a part of the survivor series. And originally originally, they would be a mystery those that got it. You know would say look God that that night is walking around like Terry funk. I think that's Terry funk. I think that's Greg Valentine think that sewn so. Thanks knuckle was even one of the names, it was bantered back and forth. So it was looking for legendary. Names yet to put under the mask and for Lawler in and was some kind of history with Lawler too. And or Brett. But then when everything happened with with Lawlor Lawler went away we need someone to fill his shoes. And that that was Shawn just out of we really had no one else. We wanted to be a big big time replacement. Terry funk was still going to be one of the nights. And now we're getting into it in we're getting closer to the match. Pat Patterson has an idea about what if. The nights get unmasked throughout the match. One time reveal is Greg Valentine, then you reveal its Terry funk and religion me snooker, whoever the hell hell else it was. And it'll be fun at a pace everybody. I knew that was him. And they get a pop so we shared this with Brett. And we talked about with brat and said, hey, what do you think about this be thinking some ideas, we haven't really talked to anybody don't know forget to do this. But thinking of ideas of different ways that we can get to the finish here. In addition to that. Now, I'm going to remind me to go back to that. But in addition to that so much of this the Genesis of the whole heart family being together was Bruce Hart had written a letter events. With an angle between him and Brett. And the angle was pretty good. And and it's it pretty much runs along the parallel of what we did with Owen. But it was Brett who came to us and said, you know, I agree with you. I like that angle. But I want to do with Owen. I don't wanna do it with Bruce. And we all agreed because one of Vince is dilemmas was because you know, he he wasn't sure about bringing Bruce in. But he knew what he had an Owen in. Brett was the one who brought oh. And we were like, yes. So then we started building the the whole Owen Hart Bret angle going back to the guys getting unmasked. So everybody came in shows in Boston. Everybody came into Stanford the night before the pay per view and Brett I guess had gotten with Terry funk. In explained, you know, hey, you know, we're gonna do this. I'm gonna put the sharpshooter on you. And then I'm gonna unmask you. Antares like. Okay. He's listening. He's listening and so on so forth. And apparently, they stay up all night long, having drinks. And having a good time. I get a message on my answering machine richer, it's the funkier. I've got to go home, my horse is sick. And that was it. And I'm calling the hotel Reagan his room. He's not there. He laughed. He folded up his night outfit and left it outside. Brett store. So yeah, the funk horse was sick. And he he went home allegedly. That was how he left the WWF every time even back in the eighties. He would tell Vince that his horse was sick. Or maybe even leave a handwritten note explaining that his horse was sick. And he was out of there. When you tell thence, hey, folks out he said, his horse was sick. Once the response. Replacing them with. Was it? And then you know, we tried to figure out what happened when we went back and piece it all together. It was Terry. Didn't didn't want to be unmasked? I don't know. I really don't know. Kinda weird. Isn't it? It really was weird because he was gung ho, and we had laid everything out for him. We did not lay out the masking because we had decided if we were gonna do it or not it was just idea that Pat had, but I guess when it was pitched to him. That was the finish. So maybe maybe just didn't want to tap out to the sharp shooter and get on nast. I don't know why. But that's fascinating debate. So how do you guys want up with Barry Horowitz as a night? I mean, this feels like. Taking people's money. Why was good night? We haven't we had a lot of guys there. We had you know, we had bury their got it could have been barked on. It could have been a lot of people had Glenn Jacobs there. So there were a lot of people there that we were last minute going we'll shit maybe they could be an eye. Maybe he can be a night did matter that point. It was just an enhancement to get the hearts over to get to the story of Owen bread. And that's that was the purpose of the match was to get owner Brett. So it really did matter who the fuck the night was at this point. We didn't have our law or Brett angle that we were going to blow off here. We stuck Sean in there just needed to get through the match to get to the whole story. So it didn't matter it really in truly who the nights were. This point didn't matter. We didn't have our big reveals to have fun with. I think it does matter. You know, I mean holy cow. Jeff Gaylord, Barry, Horowitz it. What are you going? Do the day the day of. Again. What are you gonna do? You gotta shit out a wrestler and just have appear snuck up on me. You didn't know that you'd been advertising this match for months. We know Terry funk was gonna not show up the day before or day of. All right. Well, there's one, but you still had Terry. We had Terry Greg Valentine. And then we were planning on doing some others at all fell through. They all fell through all the way up until the last day of the show. Shameful? You. Do you do what you have you've worked with what you have? And just. Okay. Horwitz as an enhancement guy. Very hor was heavyweight champion by God. Unbelievable. The may Ican even remotely justify this. Let's talk about Ray combs. I think if you don't remember the name you probably remember him as the host family feud mended appearance believe wrestlemania eight. Thank he was the ring announcer for the boss man match. What was the relationship like with the WB F? And Ray he seemed to be a big wrestling fan because he was around all the time. And if you don't know, unfortunately, we've all stray in June of ninety six he committed suicide he was taken in for a psychiatric evaluation because he had a domestic disturbance with an estranged wife, and he was in the hospital for a suicide attempt, but he actually wound up committing suicide in June of ninety six so a sad end to his life. Any funny moments. You can remember with Ray or how the relationship came to be with him in the company. Well, it was friends with Bobby Heenan. He and they're both from Indiana. Bobby and Ray were really good friends Ray was the host of family feud, always a big wrestling fan. Dan and enjoy doing anything with us. So it came up. He was available and we thought family feud because you had the heart family that he would be a good bringing out. Just a nice little extra treat for the audience. To have him come out and be the ring announcer for family feud, host hosts a family feud with the hearts and. The nights. Silly silly. It's entertainment got its entertainment. Let's talk about the story of the match because this is where we really get the beginning of this Owen Hart, Bret Hart feud, talk to me a little bit about how you thought it was carried off if any of the guys within the company had an issue with it how it was received. You know, what it was like dealing with the heart who lost the spot. It's just a this is one of the more conic feeds of nineteen ninety four and we're gonna get kicked off here at the end of ninety three. Well, the idea like I said, it was it was something that Bruce Hart had come up with rigidly for himself and the Genesis of it. Wasn't. He would turn on his brother bread out of jealousy. Brad came to us. And you know, from a do something with my brother. I'd rather do something with Owen sweep started thinking about things to do with Olen. In is we started talking to Owen into Brett? I remember having a few TV's where? In getting you know, this goes back to which I've talked about before thence not really buying into the brothers feuding got down at brothers. Don't fight. I'm thinking. What I thought my brother by entire life still to this day? But. You know families find that's real that's something that that most families can identify with and relate to you know, arguments jealousy, and and just petty shit within the family events like that's not real Dana's. Most real thing we could do. So we spent a few TV's just really sitting down with Bret and Owen thinking about different things that we do in. How we start it and start seeds of the jealousy and Brett stealing the glory at survivor series. And then getting to the tag team matches it Royal rumble where Owen brat going for the gold, and then Owen feels Brett screws them out of it all the way wrestlemainia. And then beyond when they finally have the single matches run. But it was it was laid out pretty pretty well, and it will something once we got over that hurdle once vent, Saul that people were really getting into the Owen Hart and Bret Hart rivalry, then he embraced it. But man, it was tough getting in there because he he came kicking and screaming, but it was it was really tough. I could relate to it because I had brothers and when Bret and Owen, and we all sat down and they were like fuck. Yeah. We fight everybody fights. We were all ready to go. Brett wrote about this matching his book he said that on November twenty third they all flew into LaGuardia and Vincent invited his brothers to have a brawl at the survivor series against three masked wrestlers. So he's laying out you know, when they get together. Here's how the match is going to go, and he says that Bruce had been going over with one of the greener restaurants, which I would assume would be Jeff Gaylord, quote, a script the size of gone with the with the wind with Bruce presumably playing Rhett Butler, and he told Bruce that the spotlight, and then it'd be on Owen because of our series is the beginning of wins. He'll turn on him after he explains being Brett what everybody's role would be Bruce goes right back into designing the match around himself and Brett referendum in front of everyone. And eventually Sean says, quote, if my brother was world champion in the best in the business. I think I'd quit. Fucking argh. Doing with him and start listening to him. So kinda fun that Shawn Michaels defending brea here. I don't know why. But that that stuck out to me. I remember the frustration. And I remember one point our enough. It was Sean or brat you had to bring Pat Patterson in it as well just to say guys. This is what we're doing. This is the story we're doing don't do anymore than this don't do that. You know, it was a whole list of. No, you know. So it was. It was an interesting day to say the least. But I remember that. I definitely remember that. And the frustration of putting that match together brand is very complimentary of showing in his book about this mass. He says Sean did a superb job carrying the match though. In fairness, everyone worked hard. The biggest pop of the night came when Sean staggered pass to on the floor and Stu drilled him with one of the big elbow smashes. Which Sean later told me he was honored to take and Owen was highlighted throughout the match. And of course, at the end, we know what's going to happen. They're going to get after it. And now there is an Owen man Brett feud and. Breath. Pretty proud of this. He says the heart boys had more than risen to the occasion. And I was proud of my brothers still had a twinkle in his eye. This is probably a pretty big deal for Stu to see all of his kids working together on a big show like this on a pay per view. Any any memories of stew that we can't take soon Helen were ecstatic because they had all their boys working kind of took them back to the old Calgary wrestling, where the family rustled every single week in whatever Rena, they wrestled there to have all of his boys wrestling on the car, but to team together, and it may have been I don't know maybe in the first time that those guys had all team together. So for the fam-, I think for all the brothers, and for Stu and Helen, it was really nice to see the family together to have that spotlight on them at a big pay per view. So let's talk about the next month here. The Ford doings turned out to be men on a mission. Or are you? Various has his head in his hands. The four doings he turned out to be mental mission and the Bushwacker beat bam. Bam. Bigelow the heads drinkers and bastion booger. About about that yet. It goes. That's what was it goes, ten minutes and fifty eight seconds. Contend minutes. Too long. They got a dud rating in the observers that's surprising to you. It was a fuck in heaping pile of dog turns it was fucking brutal in the half to watch. It again was painful just thinking can't end again again. This was another case of man, we had Matt board joint. And now we got Ray Apollo doing. We didn't have the same doing. We didn't have the same intensity of anything. And it was just fucking brutal. I think that I think that Matt had been a part of this because of of bam. Bam Matt they did have chemistry. I thought it just would've had a different by two. This was Faulk ING horrible. Horrible worse than horrible. Ores than horrible at won't point would have to improve to be horrible. At one point. Oscar throws some food into the ring and eventually to is going to have moped end, but he gets up and slips on a banana peel. He has really the outstanding. Let's go to the next lex Luger. Please God, let's go to the next match. Lex Luger teamed with the Steiner brothers and the undertaker that's a hell of a tag team to take on and win against Ludwik. Mortga yokozuna shocker Joe and crush man, the one side of this team or this match has a lot of star power undertaker Luger, Steiner's there the side maybe not quite as much gets two and a half stars Meltzer would say not bad, but hardly a memorable pay per view main event. What say you? It was what it was. And it took you know. It took the top guys that we had to feature at that time minus Brett and got them into that last match Vince was still kinda set on lex being the guy and he had already committed to this. But this time, you know, we're thinking. Probably not going to be. But we'd already committed by God, we're going with it. Go with the USA. Lex Luger, the part, you left out man was the very opening of this show, and you go back and you see lex Luger sitting in front of a fireplace with his beautiful wife in his two lovely children. I had to shoot that thing. The day before in Atlanta, Georgia kirwin, selfish, and I flew down. We meta crew there. And when you look at it you say damn, Bruce. How hard was that? It's high on lex Luger. This is my wife, so this is my son sewn. So this my daughter, and from my family, you which just wanna wish all of you at home, a very happy thanksgiving from the Lugar family to you happy thanksgiving everybody. Eighty. I mean. How hard can that be? I got. Four and a half hours later. Called vents vents. I don't know if this is gonna work. I said I have something, but it's fucking horrible. And I don't think that it is going to help lex. It's terrible. God damnit how hard can it be introduces families as happy fucking thanksgiving? Right breezy, and I've done it for about eight hundred times. But there was a little incident with his son and his son in lex like got upset with his son, his son, then got upset and started to cry in his son had big huge puffy Red Eye. Crying is. Is wife then got upset with lex? And the daughter was absolutely sweetest. Could be is is wife was man. She was great. She she was so nice and just cordial and it's day before thanksgiving. She's inviting us into her home and just she was great in the kids were great and lex was just tighter than a fuck and top. And I said, let's do one more. And can we just I mean, forget about everything just wish everybody America a happy thanksgiving? And finally what you see that was the very best take what we had of over almost five hours at the house, and it's in Atlanta. Okay. And it was really hot in Atlanta that day. So we wanted a fireplace going we have a fireplace going. It's hot we have to turn the air conditioner off because of the audio. So a hot house with the air conditioner going and they're all in like holiday, sweaters and shit, and which is dripping sweat and miserable. And lex doesn't want to be there. And the kids don't want to be there, and it was pulling fucking teeth. I had flashbacks when I watched this yesterday and had bad dreams about it. Last night. Just having to go back and relive that moment. Those five hours in the lex Luger home. Well, what's great about this twenty seven minute and fifty nine second match. Well, here's a great line. This man made the comment that Borge maybe the wrestler for the nineties Meltzer would say God help us for the next seven years. Ludvik borge. I don't know when we'll talk about him again. That's what she said. Last time. We talked about it work. Ludvig board was Tony Halama finish wrestler from Finland and he was miserable. Prick buddy was one of those guys that still in the days of people saying, I know it's a work. I know it's all entertainment when he walked down the aisle, people were genuinely afraid of him. He had that are about him. And he was a stone cold. He'll problem was is work was limited. And he was an asshole. So. Well, but you had hopes for me debuts in January. A big series of in yet s-, and he's sort of taking Americans the task for their perceived deficiencies and issues like environmental laws and education and even ends the Ta-talk undefeated streak, but it'd been going for like two years he beat him with one finger, and he goes on a long undefeated streak himself. You know, wanted vent. See in him that he think he was going to be the next big star for real we we he was going to be our Ivan Drago he was going to be the big nasty foreign he'll that was going to be the threat to lex Luger. And by God, he was gonna be the next the next big nasty, real he'll. After Luger's feud with yokozuna for the world title where the headline summer, slam ninety three. He starts a brief you'd with Ludvig. And it seems like this is going to be build towards a big pay per view confrontation with Luger and Ludvig. Why didn't go further because the bell rang. That goddamn bell rang out ruin a lot of shit when we saw the the lack of chemistry between Luger and Ludvig. It was it was the blind leading the blind. He didn't realize how limited each one of those guys really were on their own until you put them in the ring together went. Oh fuck. Well. Well. Let me tell you. There's no limit with Robin Hood.

But we can't get out of here without talking about the American flag inside of the undertaker's jacket. He joined the all Americans lex Liger in the Steiner. Brothers chat me up. Will you notice? He he didn't have it here because his dog aided the Terry Funk's horse got sick and undertaker dog. And the damn thing about that dog is dog just ate the the red white and blue lining part of it, man. He left intact. Doc talent. Yeah. He didn't like that line. He man. This match here force in the main event really kicks off the entertainer yokozuna feud. They're going to continue to wrestle and a few months later and January at the Royal rumble. They're gonna kill the undertaker. He's going to go to heaven, and we've covered that in the archives of something wrestle dot com. This is also Bobby the brain Heenan last pay per view as a commentator or in the WWE. He's going to leave the company just a few months after the event, apparently he gave us two week notice here at the show at survivor series. What are your memories of this? I was very sad. And I knew about a week beforehand. I told him he needed to speak defense and give Vince one last opportunity, but he just felt that he had to go, and he didn't wanna give ins- that opportunity. But he said that he would not leave. I and dry and he would give into weeks notice. Bobby and understood why Bobby left Bobby left because he needed insurance. Bobby wanted insurance as a employee for TBS in for Turner and working for them. He would be afforded insurance because he wasn't taking bumps and he wouldn't be an independent contractor. He would have been an employee. So that was something that he wanted to do. And that was the reasons for him doing it at that time. It crushed me because Bobby was my friend. And I I love Bobby. I didn't want to go. And I wish I wish I could have convinced him to stay. But there there was no convincing him to do that. And I don't think that vents. I think actually I do think that vents if he had been given those options and Bobby said vents vents, I I need insurance for my family. I'd like to be an employee and work fulltime just is commentator and all this. I think Vince probably would have done it. But he never gave him that opportunity and Bobby felt Vince wouldn't do it. So he laughed it. I was I was I was heartbroken. Well, let's let's put a bow on this week's episode. This was not announced episode was a little surprise. Of course, we conditioned everybody last year to make it your Thanksgiving Day tradition to George some Turkey. And once you're loaded up that trip to fan fire up the w network and watching all survivor series with us and today, we had another one the twenty fifth anniversary survivor series ninety three we've covered a lot of survivor series here on the show. Where would you rank this one? I mean, even this month, we did eighty eight we did ninety eight last year did eighty seven believe we've done on nine hundred ninety seven as well. So out of all the survivor series where does ninety three full. Definitely not not in the top ten. It was good. I mean, it was a good show except for that don't match the bush-whackers men on a mission that the Bockel that was fairly terrible. It was entertaining. But it just wasn't. There wasn't that specialist to it. It felt like it felt like a show that had a lot of scotch tape on it. And that's probably because I'm looking at it from a memory of it did have a lot of scotch tape on a man we were moving things around and just trying to get the matches in the ring. Get the show in the ring in deliver something in some kind of quality. It was okay. But it wasn't our best effort by any stretch of the imagination. Well, it was our best effort to entertain today. Hopefully, everybody's having a great black Friday, and you had an awesome thanks giving back at your next week. If you're around and Winston Salem rumor innuendo.

SEASON ONE, EPISODE NINE: Heavy Metal & Heavy Trouble

"Welcome to Boston. Venue the channel. Podcast this is the true and complete story of legendary Boston. Music Club. The channel from its shaky launch in one of Boston's grittiest neighborhoods through the glory years of Beer. So rock reggae shows from an incredible roster of artists and its demise at the hands of local mobsters after spectacular run a demise that ultimately led to a murder that would take twenty five years to solve this podcast includes explicit language and violent episodes no sugar coating and no bullshit. Let's rock in the last episode. You heard that the Rock Stars who frequented the channel. We're not always on their game on like studio work. Which is tightly controlled by producers and state of the art tech live shows are subject to many more factors environmental physical emotional and let's call it chemical. Sometimes it comes out right other times not so much. Learning the craft of studio master is nowhere close to playing live night in and night out at venues packed with rabid fans in the mid sixties American bands. Like the doors grateful dead Jefferson Airplane and even the beach boys were innovating new ways to play rock and roll psychedelic or acid rock morphed into hard rock and eventually into heavy metal in the UK. The Beatles paved the way for the heavy metal wave of the late seventies early eighties. It was louder harsher and seemed far removed from the pioneers of rock. Like Elvis Chuck Jerry Lee and Buddy CIANCI lip read is a beetle historian and host of the syndicated show breakfast with the Beatles and a podcast get back to the Beatles in nineteen sixty six two songs in particular by the Beatles were inspired while under the influence of LSD both composed by John Lennon and these Athen experiences manifested itself in John's music. John Ready Timothy. Leary's book the PSYCHEDELIC experience and follow the instructions on the use of LSD. John's use of the drug for the third time certainly inspired the song tomorrow. Never knows it's filled with sound effects back with tape loops Ringo's hypnotic drumming fantastic song. Tomorrow never knows was an early introduction into acid rock as really as a favourite amongst many Beatles fans another. She said she said a great example of the creativity gentlemen experienced while under the influence of LSD and one incident in particular inspired that Song John was at a party where many of the famous potty go is run to the influence for Bassett. Let's T- including actor. Peter Fonda Fund kept coming up to John Insisting that funding knew what it was like to be dead based on experience that be fun to have as a young boy. He was shot in the stomach. Accidentally in his hot had literally stopped beating so it wasn't exactly what John wanted to hear at the time while under the influence and it literally freaked him out and that experience again described in. The song's lyrics. She said she said and tomorrow never knows both songs inspired by the US use of LSD. And certainly an early acid song to by the Beatles from acid rock the Beatles dabbled in heavy metal. Certainly one of the most profound examples of that in the white album. The double record set a song called helter skelter. It's really a playful song. When you think about it helps. Kilter is a ride at an amusement park. It's just an elaborate slide. That goes in all directions and it's called the health skelter right but tall really wanna Toronto on this. He really wanted the Beatles to cross into that heavy metal kind of category and all the things that inspired that song from Charles Manson on it really was an early example of the Beatles ability just across lines and dabble in all kinds of genres of music. And they did that with helter skelter being such great early heavy metal track from nineteen sixty eight in two thousand fifteen. Vh1 selected the channel is one of the ten most legendary heavy metal clubs of all time. Vh1 wrote quote who played their Metallica slayer alison chains misfits. Black Flag Lead Afford Hawke Wind overkill gangrene suicidal tendencies. Why it ruled a confluence of Boston's college connected Bohemia and South the adjacent roughneck rock and roll the channel dominated. The city's hard and heavy scenes throughout the eighties end quote in Boston. The heavy metal scene was vibrant and local bands. Were anxious to play on the massive soundsystem available at the channel from the very beginning. Heavy metal is welcome at the channel. They had a loyal following fans. And for the most part They were easy to work with. Many metal bands would start the plane at the channel on our New Music Review Nights. That's when we would feature new bands and the bands or the management where responsible for promoting the show. We would give them tickets and they could sell the tickets. I think the cover price was two bucks or they could give them away. The intent was to get the fans to come to the show and if they showed that they could attract the you know some people then they would move up and be opening acts for headliners or eventually headline themselves. Many bands at the channel started off that way so on a Tuesday or Wednesday night we might have three or four Heavy metal bands and they would all try to bring in their fan base. And you know they might be several hundred metal heads They're a night when normally would be dead or may even be closed. One of those local bands was wore. Gazza often referred to as a thrash metal band. War Gazza is always viewed. It's music is more of a hybrid of thrash traditional and the new wave of British heavy metal. They quickly became front runners in Boston's heavy metal scene with brothers. Barry Enrich Spielberg joining Bob. Mayo to form a powerful trio that played their music heavy fast and loud their musical chops are undeniable and their legend began to grow eventually earning them respect and admiration from the more insular in aggressive. Pumpkin HARDCORE SCENES WAR GASM helped bridge that gap their aggressive stance and precision playing them. Respect which would lead to sponsor with national touring acts like nuclear assault chrome eggs and biohazard crossover shows with hardcore and metal bands. Didn't always work and sometimes lead to trouble in the pit with slam dancers and head bangers both battling for space near the front of the stage often keeping one eye on each other and the other on stage divers flying by overhead. Bob Mayo is the lead singer Guitarist and create a force of the band when I album came out with a big blowout show their Tony Bertini and WBZ. I think it show was called raw power at that. Point is heavy metal. Show that really cemented. Our status to channel really was the obvious choice. It was the biggest highest profile place to do something like that. That show was covering the globe the next day I mean for us it was a big deal as a fan. Go into an underground show. At the channel motorhead Ramones voyvods type of negative flotsam and Jetsam fates warning a lot of the bands that we be worshiped back that everyone in the C new get great show for Channel Medal was also beginning to get commercial airplay medal. Mike COLUCCI was host of WBZ. Ns Heavy metal from Hell and remembers the channel and the metal culture of those days channel was born probably at a perfect time because it was pre. Mtv Radio was a big deal that it was a very big deal and being in the Boston Market. You had college radio. Some shows that are still around since their early eighties. Bcs contribution in the metal world was the general manager of the time Tony Berry Dini had an affection for hard rock and he had a specialty show on that ran on Sunday. Nights used to run ten to eleven pm after nocturnal emissions which was championed by oedipus our program director. Some of the earliest metal shows the put. The channel on the map for me was when we talked about earlier. Which was Metallica Wasp an armored saint. Being the on the list of if I could be at a show I would wanna be at that show. The channel was also a really cool place because it wasn't primarily known as a metal club it was known as a place on any given night. You could see anybody. You could see overkill. You could see James Brown Red Hot Chili peppers a local local metal night. We did there was a place I for somebody to hone their craft. The unique thing about the channel was the cage. The now for someone who who was underage you could go to the channel and see the show but you could not drink. If you wanted a drink you went into this place school yard graveyard where you had to get by the Nice large man with either a stamper a wristband and you went into this small area to consume alcohol as much as you could and then you could go back outside but you cannot drink outside of that cage. Metal shows were standard fare for all the years. Gentle operated whether national touring acts like motorhead. Metallica or molly hatchet locals like belier age and extreme or even pretend bands like spinal tap the metal heads could always be counted on to show up and show off with leather chains and lots of big hair pretty interesting to see different types of people coming into the club. The other will metal has also looking for something different something more. They'd come in with dog collars and spiked hair in one time. A girl actually had a guy she was holding them with leash and they thought it was real cool. You know come and see spinal tap federal the coolest thing. Life on the road for touring band can be a bitch more often than not the road to rock star status chaotic at best soul wrenching and lifeforce sucking at its worst. Few survive fewer succeed and fewer still attain any level of commercial and artistic. Success Metallica a bonafide superstar. Rock band has been at it now for. Nearly forty years formed in the blistering. La Underground thrash metal scene in nineteen eighty one. They quickly emerged into the mainstream receiving critical and commercial success but the band had more than its share of misfortunes over the years at the start of nineteen eighty four. They were on their ride. The lightning tour with Wasp and armored saint and were scheduled to play at the channel. Metallica is scheduled to play on a Wednesday night and we got word. There were delayed because of snow and that they could make the GIG and that it would be postponed until that the Sunday later we found out that Lazovic. The Drummer was delayed in England with an immigration problem. And that's why that he that they couldn't come on Wednesday so they did end up showing up on Sunday and They played with you. Know two other bands armored saint and the Wasp and for the most part the was not a very successful show. There was only a few hundred people there. It got worse as a story on W. AF radio by Tony Kopa Bianco titled that time. Some Boston locals stole METALLICA's gear. Are there van relates. The year was nineteen eighty-four and MANTECA was touring the US in support of their album. Ride the lightning unfortunately for them. The New Year was not off to a good start after they play Boston's Channel Club on January fourteenth. The band soon discovered that some locals headstone their gear from their van. Just outside the venue non. The van numbers took the theft harder than Hatfield. Who at the time became very reliant on certain Marshall Amplifier? That helped him deliver the kind of sound. He wanted now in the middle of a tour with no equipment. Mataka were able to borrow some gear from anthrax to get them through the remainder of their dates. Decades later a similar story hit the news about blistered earth. A metallica cover band from Portland. Oregon had their van in all their equipment. Stolen after METALLICA heard about the story they reached out the Blissett earth and paid for all of their replacement gear. That tour was the last feature bassist cliff. Burton who was killed two years later in a tragic bus accident in Sweden during their tour in support of the album. Master of puppets extreme an art metal band from Maldon. A suburb of Boston had recently signed a major deal with am records and were scheduled to headline a sold out show at the channel previously. The band was known as the dream and had been managed by Joanne. Cody join in. The band. Had ATTEND SPLIT UP and a subsequent name change so I was working at a health club. That was next door to a Brigham ice-cream Parlor that I frequented and I ran into Paul Jerry. Who was the drummer for the rim? And extreme so I was coming out. He was coming in. We ran into each other and he said I'm in a new band is all original. I'd love to come and see us where rehearsing tonight. I said Gimme the address. It was the old Campbell Music Complex that evening when I came to meet them and listen to them. They asked me if I could help them promote the band. And so that was it differently from the get-go how I got involved with them so the ban was gaining popularity and we had a very devoted fan base where drawing some crowds and then all of a sudden. I'm getting phone calls from a woman who says she was an attorney and that she worked for banned from New York and that they were interested in buying our logo or name. I simply said it wasn't for sale but I was curious in and said why and she said well. Your logo looks very much like ours. And we don't want there to be any confusion so they they it off a five thousand dollars. I said no just days go by. Get the call from her again. They want to offer ten thousand dollars and I said what label is banned on who they signed to and she said no one. They're not signed and I said what unsigned band has ten thousand dollars to pay another band because their logos look alike. I said who are you it was. Cbs Television and they had TV series starring. John stamos price the full House call dreams. It was really a his vehicle to as a breakout star and we put it in Johnston on the show and I had trademarked the name the dream it was one of the first things. I did as a manager so we sold the name the dream and in exchange we had a signed agreement saying we wouldn't use the word three in any way shape or form in the new name which is how extreme became extreme. Because it's actually acts dream so there was another metal band that had another gear incident. This time it wasn't stolen like in the case of METALLICA. It was legally seized by sheriff so now the wheel moving quickly rescue companies are interested. We're getting phone calls and one night and day and my day says me. Isn't that your band over there? And I look over and my entire band or the entire band. Extreme Arsenio table with a I'm notorious Kloner slash from Rhode Island with paperwork all over the table. I filed the beach contract with them. Lawsuits ensued and it was hard to get them to understand how serious I was so I had to go the route of impounding your equipment. They had gone off on their first real tour on their welcome home was to perform at the channel nightclub into headline and I think this was really their first time. Headlining on like a Saturday night at the nightclub and we were waiting for them. I have the sheriff waiting for them and when the buses on the tour bus pulled down. Neko's street they impounded all the equipment. I do believe they still played that night. I think they had to use somebody else's equipment but You know hatches have been buried in and wonderful careers have lessons I think the world of all of them like Oh God. As the channel gained fame and infamy for the variety and diversity of its programming there were also serious issues and difficult challenges so like a theater or even a small arena. The channel had a real strong soundsystem professional stage and really good staff to make sure that the show went off really well. So the channel also had two o'clock Liquor license where we could serve alcohol until two. Am that allowed us to stay open and people could come in oftentimes after going to a concert in Boston or even in places outside of Boston and still it'd be enough time for them to come to channel after an arena shore theater show somewhere else but unlike theaters or arenas when the show's would normally go on you know eight o'clock or the headliner will go on at nine or nine thirty A. R. Headliners would go on the midnight or even sometimes a little bit later and would have two or three open news for each band and h headline band and that would allow us to have a party going on pretty much all night. We would open at nine o'clock and we'd have opening acts in a lot of those acts would have their own Fans coming in to see them. People would drift in until one o'clock or even laid sometimes because after they got out from a concert in the Boston Garden or the orpheum or even The worst of Centrum. If it was early enough they would come to the channel and close off the night and see a headlining act sometimes. Some of the headline acts that appeared in at Boston Garden of some of the other venues would come into the channel to kind of close off the night and have last call as the club became louder and hotter with hardcore punk Hip Hop Metal Blues Rock and more featured regularly. The financial problems continued to mount. So money started to become tight. Everything was getting more expensive payroll insurance rent repairs into to the building. Everything was getting expensive and money was Started was beginning to get tight. We also extended ourselves. We bought a condo on South Street in a leather district and opened an entertainment company called the entertainment network. But we did well. We promoted some Interesting shows we did Frank Sinatra at the symphony hall in Nineteen eighty-six Liza Minelli at the Wang Center in a few World beat shows at the Heinz Auditorium in the Wayne Center but they didn't make money expenses were very high so we became stretched a bit financially. More money was going out than coming in and we really weren't keeping an eye on the bottom line. We just thought the money would keep coming in and We basically lost sight of what was important. Meanwhile Steven Dasaro was there almost every night. He had ideas about how to turn the channel around when the sour started coming in knowing was a club on on the club in an awesome. And you know he just kind of blended into everything that we were doing. You know running the club been Joe Book and bands and you know issuing backstage passes and always wanting to be helpful in the actual operation of the club and he was trustworthy. You know you ask them do unto you do it. And I'll like go tap tap a keg or something you know he'll go do it or you know get changed from the office given the key. No problem just being a friend than being helpful. Did he represented himself as a lawyer but never really having passed his bar exam but he was very smart very knowledgeable and he actually helped us put together. The bankruptcy plan a chapter eleven normal was a lawyer. He was my lawyer. Originally you know from years past and I introduced him to the group in Terni and he was also very interested in the nightclub business. He always was. You know like the hanging around. Wise guys an alloy at daytime and at night. He'd also come in and you know kind of get into the scene. The original plan for the Sarah was to commend and Bring some money into the company and just do a few things. You know to make Business better when the sorrow really comfortable with the actual operation the momentum. The club had he decided that he was gonna get intimately involved and he introduces us to somebody from Rhode Island as being the source of money and he would operate an Moolah was also interested in getting pot of becoming part of the group that would eventually by on my brother myself out. The channel filed for reorganization under Chapter. Eleven of the US Bankruptcy Code in January of Nineteen Ninety chapter eleven under the US. Bankruptcy law provides businesses the opportunity to protect themselves against creditors enabling them to survive Steve. This sorrow a brought a proposal to me stating that. He could put the money together to buy the business from me and PITA and He could provide the money for refurbishing the channel doing some marketing and Turning the place round so I thought the offer was legitimate because the power of the ownership group included Jack Burke my partner and Steve Murillo who has our longtime attorney Steven j Morello Attorney had represented the channel from the beginning. He appeared on the club's behalf in numerous legal cases including lawsuits against or defending the channel against on law and a variety of other cases. Well I. I became aware of the channel through Peterborough. I mean I had heard about it on the radio and so on but I had never never gone there because I wasn't exactly the demographic for it but I did hear about it through Peter and I met Harry Boris and Jack Burke through Peter. We all became friendly. I started doing some minor legal things for the channel and I started going to some of the shows and as things went on I actually became night manager for a while. I was a lawyer from nine in the morning till five thirty in the afternoon and I was a club manager from six thirty at night till two o'clock or three o'clock in the morning don law was our self sworn enemy because he felt the channel was a threat to his monopoly on the industry in the Boston area to the extent that he even would threaten some of the local bands that if they appeared at the channel they wouldn't be on the local radio stations because in his mind. Control the local radio stations. He went after the channel for when the channel got involved with the Opera House. We were able to get that suit dismissed and instead of sharing the demographic he decided he wanted offer himself so Morello suggested that we file chapter eleven Murillo and desire wanted to take over the day to day operations and it was made clear to me that in order for this deal to succeed I would have to step back because they thought that my way of doing business was not a good business model. I was informed that there was a check held in escrow to affect the purchase and it was contingent on my stepping back from day to day operations in the control of the creative process and If I did the sale would happen from what I saw. There was a lot of guys that thought they could do. What I had done. At the channel over the years all their ideas would would different and they're all anxious to give it a try and Disown his team willing to give it a shot on the tenth episode of Boston.

"Hey, what's going on its Bill? Byrne. It's time for the Monday morning podcast. Monday, October eight, two thousand eighteen what's going on. Our. Why is it going? I am. I am good. How are you? All my God. That is great. Can barely hear myself. I'm out here on the road. I don't have all my podcast equipment Bill. You really you're gonna come up with the excuses on Monday morning. Maybe I am. I'm still here in Boston After a quarrel win tour of the New England states, Springfield Boston, and then. Bridgeport, Connecticut. I want. Thank everybody that came out. You know an incredible week most people I've ever performed to over three day period in my career and could not have gone any better. Thank you so very much. I was in did the Boston Garden to TD Bank north garden. On. Friday night in the round got together with some buddies used to jam with back in the day, and we played in the empty arena just had the best time ever. Right. So anyways. I walk in, it's fucking places, huge. It's like Jesus Christ. You know, you make a little bit of noise in there. So it's not as nerve wracking and then you calmed down a little bit. You get comfortable. And then all of a sudden the people start calming and fills up and then you get nervous again. Right? So I had Tony v the great Tony. The guy who taught me. Basically how to write by not writing. I guy didn't write shit down. And I was like, what? If you could get a joke? And he was just like, well, means it's time to stop doing it. I just thought it was such a fucking bad ass cavalier attitude is like, I wanna be like that guy. So anyways, I worked with him and Paul Versi, so they both go up and they just acting like just doing a regular spot if they're fucking murdering, both of murdering. I was stuck in traffic the double park or something before he went in there. So I don't think it time to be nervous. Just ran out dated twenty. I'm in the, they put you for the green room when you did it. We were in the referees, like little fucking. Pretty called locker room. I was thinking all the people that must have been screaming on the other side of the door. 'cause you're not allowed to go in there if you're a coach player or anything like that. So anyways, I'm sitting in that doing what you do in that moment. That can how the fuck that I get here. Why me is this the end. Is everybody gonna show be like, we don't think he's twenty anymore, right? Some going through all of this shit trying to talk myself off the ledge, so I could just go out there and act like this big deal is not a big deal so I can perform the best. And right before I go out there, my cellphone rinks. And I see it's, it's my wife. Mike, look at this perfect timing. This is why love or this is why she's the best. She's, you know, she's going to say, hey, don't be nervous. Go out there. Yearned it a love. You, blah, blah, all that shit, right? We'll I pick up my phone in math. She's crying hysterically. And. By I was something happened to our kids like, oh my God, she fall down. Did you drop her this? Somebody come into the house with the puck cabin. Like I picked up the phone. She says. I was like, what? What's the matter with. What? What's the matter? She's like nothing. Mike. What is it? She's like, I just saw star board. It was so. Hours, like fucking kidding. Like Honey, I gotta show. I gotta go do. All right. I thought. The puck and shit that went through my head. All Stephen King level stuff, but what could have happened to her. In the house and my daughter and all of that type of stuff. So it was so fucking ridiculous. It just made me laugh and I went out there and I just told the story and then I was kind of find for the rest of the show, but. It was. I don't know these past two weekends, it felt like I dream the shows didn't feel like they really happen. So I don't know how the hell I got to that to be able to be the guy that did it, but I wanna thank everybody for coming out and. I. The Boston Garden. One really freaked me up because I, I literally started my stand up career. I told my shit and dick jokes, literally at Nick's comedy stop. I mean, I could've walked over there. I mean what it takes me about twenty five minutes, but still I could still walk van stage that I'm in. So anyways, I went out there and I had a great time. The only thing I had to deal with in the round those stools in the middle, and they had to keep walking around either side of it, and I've learned what you want, what you want to take the stool out of the middle and just lay it down on its side. You know, then if you wanna sit down, just pick it up and sit down, I guess if you're going to do that, but I just feel like if it's in the round, you have to kind of be moving. So people aren't staring at your backside the whole time. Anyways, and that I got on the other side of that one. And that one was nerve wracking just because I had all kinds of family and friends and co-workers and people. I went to school with all of those people coming down and it's just like a, what if I have a room tonight? What if I have a bad one. Then they got to be like, no, it was. It was good. It was good. God did you you a little weight? You look good going to the gym people trying to change the subject like that shirt. Your shirt look great. Things you don't wanna hear after. So anyway, so now I'm on the other side of it, and the Red Sox played game one. And of course it was a nail biter and I was just thinking if we don't win the Chris sale game where fucked and we want it. So thank God. So then game two comes around the next night. And I am in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and I missed the whole game because I was traveling. And then I was also. Doing my show. And once again, unfortunately, price could not get us victory in the postseason. And then of course, now it's like all the wheels are coming off in boss. Everybody's just like, oh my God. How could we have played two games with the New York Yankees in we won one and they won one who ever saw that coming after I one hundred eight regular season wins season. Spokane people, it's dislike. What happened like they were like already writing in the globe going was the hundred eight win season just a Mirage because we lost one fucking game to two hundred million dollar team that won one hundred games that we played nineteen times this year we went ten and nine. We one one day one we want to. They won one. We won one, they won three, we swept them and then they went to one to win one against us. And yeah, I I had one hundred bucks each game. Fifty version fifty with my agent. You know, the overall season thing the most I got up. They were up by like one fifty one point and I was up one fifty and in the end nineteen games, they owed me. Fifty bucks each. We want one more fucking game. So everybody sitting there freaking the fuck out. And they're going to try to build this thing up like, oh my God. This is the greatest team. One of the greatest teams ever to one hundred fucking games. It doesn't mean shit. The Orioles are not going to be there in October. I keep saying how many times I have to be right. How many times do you guys have to shake your head and discuss and reach for the stop button? Because once again, overall, Billy ofr himself is once again crowing about something that he said was going to happen. I would say far back as July. You know, definitely after we slept monogamist. What exactly like in ESPN. Oh God his over over. It isn't over. So all you people out there who get confused with regular season wins. Okay. Just take everybody off the board at the end of the season who isn't going to go into the playoffs and then look how they did against the playoff teams. It's a simple as that. I think we're about, you know. Pretty even with the. The Indians. I didn't look up the Indians or the Astros, but I think we're even with the Indians. We probably had a losing record against the Astros and what ten and ninety gets the Yankees. So. Those are the teams we're going to be playing. That's how they've matched up against wise. It surprising that we're one of one. If we lose this playoff series. Yeah, it won't be nearly as a surprising fucking thing. You know, considering the last two times we played the Yankees. We've lost both regular season series. Right. So I'd say we're due to win this one. So we need fucking. Whatever's fucking Namus. Pursell. Oh, to have one of his good games tonight, then we'll be up two games to one. Before we get the shit kicked out of us by the Astros. That's my prediction. That's what I feel is is is going to happen if we get by the keys. And if we don't get by the Yankees, despite what Shaughnessy and all these guys will say it wasn't a major fucking collapse despite what Johnny Damon said. I guess one of my buddies goes, do you believe Johnny? Damon is fucking. Rooting for the Yankees -absolutely I can't. Absolutely. He wasn't a red sock. He was a and then he became a free agent. And once once you get a fucking free agent, you can't fall in love with them all in love with the stripper, right? He's going to go with the money. He didn't give book, pay me. He grew his shit up. You know that the Red Sox and then he goes to the Yankees. Yeah, you can sign what does, but you gotta get a haircut, and he's like, okay, he went downhill like a good little school boy. I got him already per scouting picture. So now he's, he's for the shift. He helped booking. And the cursor Boston. I'm good with the guy. We had a great time. Great bucking time while he was on the team. So anyways. I'm gonna watch that game tonight. I believe game three is tonight, and I'm not going to think that you know. I'm hoping that we can win this thing, but like just the way that they're already building this thing up like this is going to be, oh, my God. Like if the Red Sox win winning all this year, right? Is this one of the greatest teams of all time? Now I wouldn't say that even if they had a hundred and eight wins. You know, compared to some of those of the force, Red Sox beat the fucking. Twenty eighteen. Who's. Was the fourteen one of the great teams of all time. How. Well built who you thinks gracing the fucking Oakland as nearly seventies those teams. The big red machine. I think those will better teams. I have no fucking idea. I'm just saying everybody fucking relax. Put you fucking eyebrows down. Anyways, plowing ahead here. So I'm still here in Boston and. Anytime I come back from my man, I miss living here, but this time more so than any other time. I don't know why. I just I took the day after. The Boston Garden gig. I was still staying in Boston, and I walked over to the north end. As I always do. And I went down Hanover street, and then I kinda, you know, I was walk about halfway down the corner store, and then I fuck in break off to the left, and I'd try to find shit that isn't Hanover street is like the Times Square the north end right? And ended up finding this great place to get a saying which and be my tool manages fucking hung out in this park, eat the sandwiches. Unlike a perfect day for Sonny, New England day in the north end, it was a great talion deli where they had all of this. Italian. It's just like they take food to the tireless next low. And I was in there just like wanting to order everything because I live on the west coast kick. You coulda talion. You can't get good pizza. Can't get any of that shit. But I was just like, I guess they died and not get too crazy mardi bread here. So I just got a tuna, small tuna. Subba guess you'd call it out here and just the way they season. It was fucking perfect that celery onions in there and something else mixed in with the tune and just a hint, a man as and even the size of the way they chopped up the onions and salvage. It was perfect. It all just added to it. It all just kept taking the tune into the next level and it was sitting in a park, I would say to my manager with fucking sandwiches. Unbelievable and even lives on the east coast like, yeah, it is a good sandwich. We sat there going. Is there anything better than just sitting outside a good sandwich? And that's the end of the sandwich story. It was. It was tremendous smoking, tremendous. That's one of my favorite parts. You know of Boston, and then I always walked and I walked over to the garden to buy some Bruins stuff for my daughter, and I walked by, you know, that bridge go over to get to Charlestown, which I never even knew that that's what that was. I'd always heard it Charlestown, but I didn't know where the fuck it was until that movie town came out. You know, I've learned more goddamn shit about Boston by watching movies about it. When I lived here. I just I didn't. You know. I knew how to get to like sports venues, but I didn't know you know, east Boston. I still don't even know where that is. I would not get the. I know what Chelsea is. I don't know what now I know what Xiao's down is. Back Bay. I don't. I don't even know where the fuck that is where that starts, where that ends. I know where Newbury street is. Something stomach's growling here. I don't know. So tonight is my soda the next couple days. Hang back here just because I got a bunch of fucking nieces and nephews and all of that shit. And on the other side, I got one more Rena gig. Everybody one more left before. Fucking freckles turns back into a pumpkin and that's November seventh Madison Square Garden. And it's gonna be me version. Joe bar, Nick. And I'll tell you, I wish I was taping his special right now because I feel like my our is ready to go. But. Dude of different things that's I think I'm gonna take until next year, but. I've been having more goddamn fund and I swear to God. I really believe that the more things get crazy on social media with these lunatics that have gone so far left that I'm questioning, whether I'm even left anymore. The more they do that. I feel like the more you can get away with on stage people just laughing even more. Anyway. See that Cavanaugh guy got on the fuck supreme court. I don't know what that means. I know a lot of people are upset about it. You know, I don't understand those women getting fucking arrested and then they're sticking fist in the air that doing the black power thing. That was black power, right. The fuck can take that to Larry white women, the United States of America fight the power. The kid. They can't come up with their own fucking thing. They should steal the Sammy, Hagar thing that he used to do where he took the two. I love you. Thanks together. Any would sort of put his index? Strongest again, is some together in than you know, stick his tongue through the middle Weigl acting like he was going down on a woman man. That's what she could do in the eighties at a mainstream concept. Swimming should have something like that. Just don't stick the tongue through it. Then I think it's respectable the women. I think that that's where that park goes off the rail. I'm not sure I'm not. I don't know much about the hand gesture, but I I know enough about him to be like that was the black power one that someone from the Olympics. You can't tell me at this point to get arrested at a protest to stick your fucking hand up in the air. You don't feel like you're doing the Charleston that doesn't feel a little dated. You know, this guy to be something new that you're doing like. Like doing a job aid, take my wife, please. Let's like the fuck and protests version of that. You mean like. I had the low five. Then you had the high five, then they will bump bumping forums. Then they'd come into kind of do like that, you know, like you deliberately missed and then forearms and elbows, kind of lock. Then there's all these elaborate. Fuck and handshakes always goes to the next level. But for some reason with protesting. They just, you know, timeless classic the fist in the air. I'm saying that needs to be switched up. I don't know what I would go with. You guys want to check in on some feminists tweets. One of my favorites could things to do. Let's see what they're demanding today. Maybe they're in a good mood today. Can you imagine that you mentioned if you just went to feminism and they were like, you know what? Kind of happy with America. All right. Them. As the probably get this people trashing feminism. I don't wanna see that. Oh, no. She's one of those feminists. Yes, only just fresh from. Okay. Is this a guy wearing this shirt? Of course. 'cause he's woke. Feminism is the radical notion that women are people. To some people. It is what I love about feminism is is really no clear definition. It's just what it means to the person. It's kind of like, what? What is art. Why men's rights activists the shooter according to his Facebook is of feminism feminist? Sorry, it's just trashing at Christ. You know what? Let me look this one of you gotta get the ones where they make it about themselves. That's my favorite Cavin. Right. How do you spell. Cavenaugh confirmed. Okay. Here we go. Right. It's an f. y. f. why everyone supreme court justices can be impeached. It rarely happens, but it's absolutely possible. Just keep in mind until I don't know. Let's say mid November. All right. It's about the election. When do I get my own handmaiden. That's how this works. Right. All right. Once again, that's a little dramatic. Don't you think. Probably. I love this is a good one. I met three black people, a gay man as Hispanic man and more women than men. Yesterday that support cavern identity politics is sexists racists. Don't be part of it. Identity politics is gross. Don't be part of it. I, that's always convenient, right? You know, I think Obama stinks in on a democrat. Liberal help Kevin win by showing how ridiculous they truly are. Hell yet. Cavanaugh. Come on man. I like the other ones. Some old holding up sign in his woman dancing around him. All right sisters going off the rails. I got, I got. I want this to be a fuck and a legitimate segment. The power structure wasn't willing to risk, not having a majority of straight. Sys- gender, conservative, white men, directing our laws practices in policies into the CBA future. They would rather have a sexual assaulter than literally anyone else. Yeah. Everybody sees it the way that they've could see it man, you know, it's kind of weird way with those things. The burden of proof is way less. Because if that was a trial, that would have been like, yeah, dude, you can't be. I think it was him. I don't really remember. Yeah. Yeah, they'd be like, all right. Yeah, we don't have time for this. You gotta come back with an evidence. Having said that I still believe the woman just because she kept telling the fucking story over and over and over again, I dunno, fuck knows. But some of this shit the cabin was getting who doesn't have a bunch of fucking friends was stupid nicknames from high school. Fucking Headley squash, plank, Gazeta Frenchie. With the puck.

Got that halo and shit around you. Definitely seems you know. Like the death rate must've been way higher obviously was built in the guy talking about ended up dying, but. Phil, why don't you read some advertising here now that you've meandered bombed with your fucking. Twitter feminism, fuck and breeding the tweets there because you didn't look up. Why didn't you walk in. Come gotta be good one here. He's just not a likable looking guy this Cavanaugh. I think that's, that's what really hurts. You gotta be likeable. You know, Bill Clinton Bill Clinton is likable shifted that guy's getting busted for doing women's still like fucking it's unbelievable. You know, it's just a bunch of pro cavenaugh people crowing on here. That's all it is. We must vote. Here's the end of everything. Right? P. America. Cavenaugh confirmed. I mean, that's a little dramatic. We didn't just hire this guy to become a fucking Fuhrer. Did we the end of everything. All right. Let me read the advertising. I know this is like brutally.

Three days at the unbelievable Chicago theatre and. And that's it. And then the rest of the year on plucking off, but it's filling up with bullshit. It has always sort of fucking bullshit. Let's read some of the questions here for this week. Oh, yeah, you know, they say sober October. Which I jumped into late. Is I drank the first day then I didn't drink any other days except last night. I had a few. I'm in Boston. What am I supposed to do. So I drank too to what a what's today today, the eighth. All right. So I'm six, two. Back on the wagon. Here we go. And I was saying, you know, be gravely sober up, Tober makes you not want to drink be grades. They could come up with a rhyme for November. So somebody came up with no bender. November doesn't really rhyme, but it's close enough. He said, you'll Billy TD Gad and crushed on the puck. Eighth Lewis Friday, thank you. He said, no, booze November is called no bender November in case you can't think of a way to rhyme you dumb genius. Well, it doesn't really weren't. Okay. There's a word for that. When there's two things that they sound like they rhyme that they don't called hyperbole. I have to go. It's called a run on sentence. Remember that shit stupid. Terms English class. Two words that rhyme, but don't. Terminology. What do you call two words that? No, no, no, I didn't. I didn't ask right God. Dammit. Two words that sound like they rhyme, but they don't. Come on, give it to me, what does it call word sound like they Ryan, but all right, half rhyme. I thought they had a bigger term for that soliloquy. I don't know anyway, let's get back to this compulsion. All right. Toilet paper versus of fancy toilet. Hey, freckles. This seat is better for the violent because thousands and thousands of leaders of water and kilowatts of power go into the production of toilet paper. Thanks, you dumb. Fuck. Okay. Well, what about having to then have an electric toilet seat. What about all the extra water you going to be using hosing off your asshole. You know, I mean, they both. It's like driving Tessler. Okay. So it doesn't use guests, but what happens? He throat that giant battery underneath the car, although I'm totally for those cars and electric power. Because even if it pollutes the environment just as much, at least we'll be out of the Middle East, they know that's their problem. We just convert solar power. We all drive quiet electric cars. You know. There are bucking one trick pony over there in the Middle East. They don't produce any cars anybody wants, you know. Cuisine, they got cuisine, and they got oil that cuisines, delicious our cars, love their oil. But you know, if you put that put him out of business, they go money to fund any sort of terrorist groups, and then we leave him the fuck alone. And then they go back to just being mad at each other. Done out, see the Claire victory. Go home, right? Make smoothie broccoli sprouts in your smokey gear. Billy bison, but I'm really into fitness and eating healthy and all that. All right. To that point. You may want to consider researching the benefits of broccoli. Sprouts contain lots of anti cancer properties, and the research is new with loss of tests to back it up. I want you to live forever. Thanks, go, fuck yourself. All right. So what am I supposed to look this up? Broccoli sprouts, straight up. Broccoli was broccoli, sprout, raw goalie. Sprouts. K. answer. All right. Let's see what they say here. Econo- broccoli. Sprouts may not only help prevent cancer, but also treat what Jesus Christ says. It may. Suffer. Laughing is bonded vegetables, such as kale, cauliflower, and cabbage, and in particular high concentrations in young broccoli sprouts. She's christ. I gotta eat those things. You gonna freeze them. All right. Well, you know, I looked it up. It says they do that. So now I believe it. Enough broccoli sprouts. All right. Here we go. I I'll definitely do it. You know. All right, art. Deco bars. Hey, there freckles you mentioned looking into an art deco bar, check this one out. It comes inside an eighty million dollar airplane. Pretty sweet. Drop a few. Those Netflix coins. There. Let me see this fucking thing in art deco bar plane. That's not an plane. What. Private business aircraft manager. Embraer executive just have created a new luxury jet dubbed the Manhattan which takes passengers back to the nineteen twenties with art deco designs. Isn't it enough that you fly in private? Yeah, I'd love a private jet, but what is the theme created by the company's vice president of interior design, Jade, Viva, and former dizzy. Imagine near. Image near Eddie Soto jet. What t sounds shady. Eddie? Soto. Jaber you'll try to fuck your girlfriend eighty solely shady. The will make you feel as though you're stepping back in time and its with its rich mahogany wood panels, brass, and gold trimmings and vibrant jewel tones. Sounds like it's going to take a lot of fuel to get off. The ground beaver was inspired by the art deco interior designs of the SS Normandy, French ocean liner. I say of the SS fucking German psychopaths. There. I use the Nazis Nazi Germany to inspire this. This Bill. Some explained to me how the fuck you can never fly private and make any money. I will never understand that. You know it caused an absolute fortune and he can't even write it off. You like if you spend like twenty grand on, fuck in private plane ticket like the government's only could have flown first class, fifteen hundred bucks to grant. You're the dumbest. Spent another eighteen grand. That's on. You. That's the way it might come explain to me. All right, shit. Talk in people. Dear, Billy Justice, what's the deal with? Okay. So what's the deal with talkers getting mad when other people talk? Shit, all of my beef comes from hypocrites. These days. I keep hearing people comedians as well. Get mad at people who who make fun of them. The same people make a living doing the same. I need some examples here this. Yeah. I mean, I don't agree with that. If you go around making fun of people and you shouldn't get mad at people making fun of you right. Meaning hecklers. I don't mind hecklers. You know that any mind these people that right mean shit to me on Twitter and knowing. But I mean, I accepted. I try to try to rise above it the same people who make a living doing the same thing. The same people who never think for a minute about what they're saying. Flip the fuck out when someone trashes them. It's something yell at to no one in my car. On the way home from work on a daily basis, quote, you motherfucker. Hoppy expect to be treated like this when you yourself are doing the same thing. It's the golden rule right out the window. It's law nature right out the window Bill. I'm losing my mind anyways. I was wondering how you deal with these people do yell at everyone, you know, do you lose your friends and colleagues? I'm sure you had a celebrity friend complain about something they have done themselves million times. What would you say. Well, listen, if you're going to talk about hypocritical behavior, the fucking king of that. And I've been guilty of that trash and people on stage than getting upset if someone was addict to me. Everybody, everybody's like that. Everybody's got flaws so I don't. I don't know really know what you're asking me. But like I do find funny with some of these people who are like, entertainment, who are you know. You know. Pro-women advanced all that, which why wouldn't you be? But then the way they go, they go about it. Is there the sale Sex's shit about guys, these big sweeping generalizations and all that. It's like you literally sound like what you're fighting right now, and they're like, oh, shut up. Your white guy. It's like, yeah, yeah, white guy who would know more about that. Then then a white guy. You sound like a white gush. Maybe that's the way you try to convey to them because then you kinda shit on yourself. You sound like a white man. That is not a compliment. You know what I mean? Why do I think this audio is going to be played at a Klan meeting? This is where the Wiedeman is right now thinks the sound lock himself. It is not a compliment. It all went off the rails with first free in the slaves. Second Yoann MTV wraps, and then Obama. Yeah, I would just say that. Like some of the like I thought a lot of the ways that people were just talking about cabinet was downing Li like, you don't hear that you're doing what you're doing. You're against racism and all of that shit like you can't say you being racist against the white guy because your thoughts don't affect, but it's basically if you were in power, that guy would be fucked like a white guy. Just never heard the word. No, every door just flew open. You know that that cartoon version of being a white dude. I don't know. I just thought so much of it was about they just built this whole story behind this guy. I guess that's density politics like, oh, he, he went to Yale. He's a white guy. He was, you know, he played sports. Okay. He's a date. Rape is all the doors flew. Open is dad was a judge. He never went to jail. Whatever the fuck they're talking about is just going like, give up about a little evidence. Yeah. All right, boyfriend being shady. I didn't even answer this question. What do I say? Those people? If I'm in a zone, I don't say anything. In a bad place, a let it ruin my morning and I'm like, you and I. Like I remember when Harvey Weinstein, I got busted than Fox News. This is what Hollywood is like. I just member yelling and your network. Bill o. Reilly. What about all these other fucking main guys over there? I mean, I don't know. Mateer where it's at. I'm telling you or boyfriend being shady, hey, Billy no Bunce all my man, and I have been together for six years, but this past year he's become really close to this lady from work. That's not good. They spent a lot of time together going to bars parties and work. Obviously, I don't go out with them because I don't like to drink and having Zayed's. He'll make me feel like I'm crazy for getting upset, but if the situation was switched and I was going out drinking dancing with another man, he too. Yeah. Yeah, exactly. Exactly. He's going out drinking and dancing with another woman. I think you're well and you're right to be like. Yes. So then I mean, the next logical step is you're gonna finger blaster here. What's going on here anyway? What's your opinion on this chill out? And if so, how ELO? Thanks of clock yourself. I need the valley. What you think this is bullshit. Big out drinking and dancing with another woman. I mean, I don't think you know. The only thing I could say that is if you don't go out, if you don't hang out and you have anxiety, I don't know what the anxieties about, but like this guy likes to go out. He don't like to go out at all. Maybe guys aren't right for each other or maybe you guys find some shit that you both. Like, you know. Yeah. I mean, that's. Not a good situation. So I would. I would tell the person what you think. I don't think you'd be wrong, and I think that is shady behavior. All right. That's just the wino-. What the fuck do I know. All right. What do we got? This is the last question. I got twelve minutes left. I swear to God. If I don't have my microphone in my bucket headphones, it's literally like kryptonite. All right. I break up. Hey, you freckled. Fuck his fucking relationship goes down the tubes, and then they come at me all hostile. I'll make this quick. I just want to tell someone and honestly, honestly, before I talked to my parents, I know you're dyslexic like me, so I'll use basic words. I appreciate that. I'm a senior nice school. I'm on the varsity wrestling and run and run distance track. My free time has only consisted of homework and Netflix. Parentheses after two families. My favorite show. Nice guys, see how we announce that the great bench Vaughn. Will be on the, we'll be on season three. No season to season three. Yes. He's getting myself anyways. He said. I'm senior high school. Well, that was like ten months ago. I never dated a girl ever, but I had a crush on this girl for like a full year. She runs cross country is waste martyr than I will ever be. All right, great. Put her up on a pedestal seal that works. She's a year younger than me, but we eventually started talking because when the boys and girls varsity teams would hang out, we both would be there. Eventually, she became all that I thought about. I literally could not focus on school running it cetera. We talked almost every night over text to, and we're together every time I went out with team, we went to homecoming my first time together. If you weeks ago and I had my first kiss their Jesus Christ, it sounds like fucking perfect story. After that night, we really didn't talk over text that much. We don't have any classes together and practice is not a good time to hang out anyway. About a week ago. She text me and said she didn't see future of us being more than friends. I told her what I got. I just said, that's fair. And all I want is for her to be happy, which is true. But I thought I would be able to brush that shit off like it was nothing, but I'm writing this Email for no reason. So that obviously didn't hap-. Should I have fought harder to keep together just move on. I'd never been relationship and I don't know what to do anymore. Would appreciate your vice as always go, fuck yourself. You sound like a funny Kidman I think you get yourself, you know by Nick, you'll be fine. Just keep using humor. Cry it out. Yeah, you've plucking fell hard for this person and then they sent you packing and then you like, what is this something wrong with me? And it's like, no, there is just not right. She broke up with you for a specific thing. You know, you're torturing animals and I just don't like that about you. She just said, not right. She didn't feel the spark the way you did. That's what happens and she did you favor. So the best thing is you didn't yell at her and you still kind of friendly with her. So what I would do is I would just fuck, but don't brush it off. If you have to brush something off, that means you, you're trying to trick yourself that you don't give a shit. You do give shit and just sort of big in giving his shit about it, talk it out with people. But I would leave her alone but be friendly. What say, hey, what's up. And. You know, and you're young, you still in high school. You gotta. You gotta you gotta zillion at bets. That was your first buck in bet. You know, what are you going to do? So I wouldn't. I wouldn't take that heart. But it's normal that if you like somebody and they break up with you, feed of feel bad. All right. If you could just brushed it off, it was no big deal. And that would mean that you didn't like or that you were like a sociopath. And that would lead you to torturing animals and eventually work your way up to the ultimate prey. Being a human being walking out of a seven, eleven unsuspectingly. So that's gonna be the podcast fifty, three minutes contractually obligated to do another six and a half minutes here. Right. So anyways, I've been pretty good on my diet. Breakfast, I've been better than anything else, but just coming back and trying to avoid all the old haunts that I go to, but it's been. Spend difficult. I'm trying to do smoothies in the morning. But you know, I'm staying with some relatives and they just been, you know, like, oh, so, and so's in town. Let's make pancakes, right. What do you say? No, actually, no. Could I get some Greek yogurt was some berries and some Chia seeds, but of the fuck you call those things to me. That's acceptable on the west coast. Do that out here. Everybody starts talking like, hey, do you know? Don't forget. We came from now. In east coast guy. Okay. You die of a heart attack, fifty sixties. You know, that's how it works. Get all sit down and eat this shit. That's gonna make you wanna take a nap. That's basically it right. Well, I'm hoping. I'm open. I can jump right. I'm gonna jump right back on the when I get out there doing the best I can. I get a full could fell today, then I would. I would be. Be fine. I just have to get on the other side of this, to be honest with you, get to the other side of the fucking Chicago theatre gig. And once I do that, then I feel. I can just cruise for the rest of the year. I'm going to do my eastern European tour. And another little run. I think next year we're gonna do is every six weeks. I'm gonna go overseas and knock something out, hopefully get some Australia dates in that type shit. That is the game plan and somewhere in there to shoot a special. I don't know where a when yet, but. I know it's feeling like it's feeling like it's fucking ready. You know, and I've been throwing all these extra lines and people, but really laughing at all of it just goes the complete opposite direction of. All of this shit. That's kind of going on out there. Which I don't know. Means it's either going to be a really good special, or I'm just going to get fucking trashed. Well, like this just sounds like a wining white male pining for the way, things used to be the bay when they do their fucking shit. And it's just like, no, a contrarian. That's all it is. So evidently a star is born. Which stars, Dave Chapelle, Andrew dice clay. I think there's one other comedian in there too. I didn't see my wife sought, never dental loved it to the point that she was crying like a loved one died. She's like, you gotta come out. We have to see that movie. And I was like, like a dirty dancing type of movie because I just don't see myself. Maybe it was a good thing that you saw it by yourself. And I guess she's like Bradley Cooper entities. Fucking unbelievable. Wrote all the music. He's so talented and I was like, I love Bradley Cooper, right? And she's like, lady Gaga is in it. I was like. She's like, what's the matter? You don't remember the long time ago when I went to the lady Gaga concert with you, it was the day the patriots got crushed by the ravens in the playoffs. So I'd already had like six years. You remember that. And evidently said Jesus fucking Christ in the middle of the concert. It's only once she said he said at like four times, we got this big confide. Not really. She was just mad at me saying that I ruined the experience for so ever since then whenever she goes to one of these big shows like she doesn't. She doesn't ask me to go anymore. Which is funny, but now that I set it out loud is a little sad I I should be able to sit through. No, I liked lady Gaga when she was singing, but it just kept just was like this fucking. I don't know what it was. It was like this self help program. I've felt more than a concert. And they just kept fucking talking about. They didn't give a file give fug, but I don't give a bug. It's it's like, get on with not giving a fuck. Stands around talking about how they don't give fuck Jesus fucking Christ. I mean, that's basically what it was. Long. It was probably only like twenty percent of it. The other eighty percent of my team lost in the playoffs. So it's probably good thing. Yeah. I'll be honest with you. I don't. I don't know. I don't know if I can sit through movie that has people singing in it. And that has nothing to do with the people that are singing it has to do with me. I just don't know what it is. I, I can watch the dumbest shit ever like somebody is one hundred people with machine guns shooting at the guy, and somehow the guy doesn't die. Like that to me for some reason, it's less ridiculous than watching two people sitting across each other talking and all of a sudden, one of them starts singing. And nobody's like looking like to in a restaurant creek can stop fucking sing and just just say what you have to say. Weird me out here like, no, that moment never happens in a musical. You know, it's funny. I, I don't even know what that movies about. I should go see it. I watch the same movie over and over again. It's just as different title. So you know, I'm gonna broad my, you know, I'm gonna go see that movie. I'll go see. 'cause Dyson Chapelle in. God, I go them. My wife is crying and I have to like comfort her and all that shit. She's crisis. I, we were going to let that we have a good time. Look at you fucking crying and I will walk in public and everybody's looking at me like I just said something mean to you, and I a big, she just stars born. It was really good. That's why she has an expression on face like something really bad just happened. Time. Dirty Vanson weird. Our word. You know, I don't know. There's people who watch top gun and they like the airplanes. And then there's other people that watch it and they liked the kiss between Tom Cruise and Kelly mcginnis me. I just like the volleyball game. I don't talk with you. All right. Thanks to the podcast. Thank you. Everybody came out to Springfield, Boston and Bridgeport, Connecticut. My mind is blown that I was able to play in those venues. It was it didn't even make sense. I felt like a fucking cartoon character. I never never never even thought it could ever do whatever do something like that. So thank you so much and everybody Saginaw Michigan, you know, it's fucking amazing. Second edition, Michigan, my great grandfather and grandmother had a house in Saginaw Michigan. I'm gonna drive and take a picture of it for some of my relatives because they wanna see it's still same thing, but they live there like fucking hundred years ago. See, you never know probably has solar panels on it, so very knocked down and made them make mansion fucking hot tub and shit there who knows. But I'm really looking forward to 'cause I've never performed Saginaw Michigan. So we're all bringing our a. game me, verbally, Bartnik Saginaw Michigan.

Monday Morning Podcast 6-3-19

"Hey, what's going on its Bill Burr, and it's time for the Monday morning podcast for Monday, June third two thousand nineteen what's going on? How? Hey. I don't know what to tell you. I'm here in New York City, we start the start the movie tomorrow. So. Little fuck. I was get antsy before I do those things. But then, once they do take two then I'm just kind of. Fine. So and also today is my beautiful wife's birthday, which is a nice distraction the families in town. I'm no longer. Lonely came in yesterday. It was awesome. We have a nice little space here. So I play this game either where I chased my daughter around, or, you know, she does like the pony ride. But like I used to do you know how you do the pony. Rod where you're crawling on all fours. But my left needs to fucked up. So I get on my back and we'll do it this way. And then that morphed into let's do the fast pony rights now. I have to run with her on my back and just this, no way, there's no way around it. I'm just old no matter which way, I try to adjust it. She wears me out, but. It's awesome that they're here in town. So anyways, let's talk. Let's talk Stanley Cup final hockey, your Boston, Bruins are up two games to one two games away from winning the Stanley Cup which would be the seventh in franchise history and the two games away. But that is a long long ways away. It's been a very strange series. So far, it's been a series of dominance. Whoever wins the game that night seems to have dominated. Like I remember when the Bruins one game one all my buddies with text me going, Saint Louis can't play with you know, they would text in a mode of it's going to be a sweep and. I saw enough in the first period of of that game. I just knew that, you know they're a big fast team. And this is going to be a war. This is going to be a war. So last night was a weird game. I don't know. It's a little frustrate. I got tell you I was curious after game to that because we lost, I've just never seen a Bruins team. Look, the other way after that amount of liberties taken after the whistle you know, this, this new period where they've all the I wish all the people that wanted to get fighting out of the game actually watch this series because that's what I always said. It's like they all these people were advocating, you know getting the fighting out of the game so they could continue to not watch hockey and like this nothing wrong with the way Saint Louis playing, but the way that they're playing back in the day, you know, we would've sent to goon out on the ice to settle everything down. But now there's none of that anymore. So the game that they're playing which is essentially, they play the lock whatever the left wing lock or whatever. And then the come down the ice and running our goaltender and back in the day, if you ran the goaltender, the second, you didn't you just drop the gloves, because you knew someone who's gonna come and try to beat the shit out of you. But that can't happen. So I guess what needs to happen. Then the refs needs to take his whistle out of his fucking slacks. And you gotta punish the team, but they kind of let it go. And when they have taken the whistle out. They kind of have matching penalties which has been really frustrating, but my buddy, Joe Barton told me said, don't worry all the Bruins have to do is keep playing their game and they'll be able to get past it. But I am by no means comfortable. I'm psyched route two games to one, but I you know, it was so weird. I mean that game was essentially five to two it wasn't, you know, lose an empty netter and then a garbage time fucking bullshit goal in the end. It was basically a five to two game. And I was really baffled how we somehow scored five goals when I felt we played the game eighty percent in our own end and. That isn't what I like the way Saint Louis plays is you gotta get up on them early because. The you know, they get a goal to the just gonna fucking smother you with that boring ass fucking trap defense, which I don't understand why. You know you saw the NBA they guys got too big into fast. The game got boring. So certain defenses were made a legal. And for some reason, I don't know they opted to get rid of the red line like that was supposed to fix the problem. I don't know what but. You know, I don't know. All I know is back in the day. The game that Saint Louis is playing they would have to be a way tougher team to play it. Who's that guy? Number seven Patrick maroon back to get the shit kicked out saying he would lose the fight or making that subject. But some of would've jumped them. The bullshit that he's doing. But that's just kind of not the way the game is that I got is a Bruins fan forty fucking years. It's been a I never seen. You know we were never the fast team. We will usually team doing the bullshit. So. I know a lot of Saint Louis fans with fucking game. You watch and it's like whatever bullshit, we're doing is the reaction to what you guys doing. You know what you're doing? You saw the San Jose charts sharks last fucking series by the end of this series of third of their team was gone from the way that you guys playing. And you know, be honest man. It's. Call it ship e. So. I, I still think that we I really believe in my heart hearts that we're the better team but I still don't think that, you know that means we're going to win. You know when. Team is going to play like a physical game like that. Because guys end up getting hurt. You know what I mean? I mean it just it's just the way it is. So I don't have a problem with that. Because the Bruins played like that for fuck it ever. It's just weird now. Having watch hockey as long as I have to then not see somebody skate out and beat the shit out of that guy. So he fucking tones down and everybody else fucking relaxes. It's really been a weird thing, but. Having said that the atmosphere was great last night before the game just game just got out of hand but it was cool to see although Saint Louis fans that fucking excited. It really is a big time hockey hockey town as much as their baseball team does so. Well. They're definitely die hard fans. If your Saint Louis fan, you a fucking diehard fan, so you've been through it. So. We'll see. We'll see what happens. I don't know it. It's kind of just seems like it's going to be a back and forth, so far. Obviously, this will be huge. If we can somehow break this serve and win back to back here and go home three games to one. But if they tied up to two I just I just see this thing going seven. All right. I just hope no more of our players give fucking hurt. And if they do, I think it might be time to fuck and go down to wherever fucking farm team is just bring a fuck and goon up and clean somebody's stuck in clock like they did the other day, leave some teeth on the fuck and ice to be like the refs aren't fucking doing anything. Matching penalties is the best we seem to get. So anyways, haven't said that speaking of as diehards St Louis blues fans are. I watched a little bit of the NBA finals and the fact that they're calling Drake superfan. Just like I, you know, I know it's a business. I know it's about money, but that guy is the furthest thing from a superfan superfan. Is there through thick and thin where the fuck is this guy bent? Okay. What kills me is up until, like two years ago, this super van I say his name, or is that not? But Tia is says name no disrespect to that guy. I love that fucking guy that guy has been to every single home game in the Toronto Raptors history. He travels on the road to remember we played them in the fucking playoffs. He came to the Boston Garden, and he was such a fucking, good guy that, you know, even though he was wearing all his Garin shitty such a happy, good fucking. He's everything of fan should be his behavior and all that. He gets no screen time. All of a sudden Drake comes in who says super bandwagon fan to the point he has to wear of fucking, he's got to wear a fucking wristband, our head on his fucking arm because he's got tattoos of the jerseys of the players on the other fucking team. And I just like that guy is literally like the worst representation of a sports fan, you could possibly have standing up the whole game. You know, when you sit behind that fucking asshole, every time somebody takes three pointer, they gotta stand up or stick their arm up with three fingers in the air like everybody doesn't know I stand, if it's a big three pointer and especially nowadays when bowl team seem like they're going to take twenty three pointers of peace. This guy's gonna get up twenty bucks times in forty-eight fuck fucking minutes as trying to watch the game behind him. Going onto the court getting into the faces of players have an arguments with them and he's be like champion like he's. This amazing fan. Stephen Smith, whose kid who I absolutely love Stephen a Smith. But that guy does get a little enamored with famous people. He really does because there's no way if that was some plumber, and he was getting in the face of fucking Steph curry, and that other guy kicks in the balls, accidents fifty eight times what he takes a jump shot, you know, if he was getting in the fate, and he was just some regular guy's. Stephen a Smith Europe. Plummet sits you ask down? What are you doing? Learn how to behave yourself in public. He would go that way. But because it's drank. Some auto tune singer who evidently has a cell phone. Now all the sudden this fucking guy can go in the fucking court. I don't know. I think Drake has that performer disease, you know, where even if it isn't there show, he has to somehow he doesn't know how to behave if, if, like when he walks into an arena, you know, it's just sit down and have some popcorn and watch some of the best athletes on the planet. The guys literally running his. Yep. Like trade company points. I mean what you're not in the game. I know you wear in half happy uniform, so you might get a little fucking confused too. I just I don't understand. It's noisy aiding. Fuck and behavior. I hate it back in the day when I was a Celtics fan any amount of time, they would cut to Jack Nicholson. Fuck. This is Jack Nicholson movie. Plus, when you look back and you see how many fucking hall of famers were on the court. I know he's part of the atmosphere, Diane cannon, and it was the whole LA thing, whatever I guess, they cut the famous people whatever, but, you know, all of a sudden they're like making plays they're in the huddle and Drake sitting there giving the guy of fucking back rub. Stephen as go. And like if you don't like it shut the man up with you. So then if any of us regular people go out and get courtside fucking seats like it's okay for us to do what Drake's doing. I can just go up to a coach start giving him a back rub. I could start yelling at a player and pick and Lynch out of their fucking hair. I can do that. That's okay. You don't the other team doesn't like it, then shut me up and score more points. Like I said, I love Stevie Naismith, but I disagree. And I think he's just getting a little enamored with this guy's fame. I it's ridiculous behavior. He's a total bandwagon fan with tattoos of players from the other fuck at team on his arm the fuck outta here. If you wanna see a superfan, it's that not, but t agai okay, that guy that guy is an ambassador that guy is tremendous tremendous bucket human being. All right. And I'm sure when he goes to karaoke, he, they don't have to turn on the auto tune for. All right. Anyways, how far into this? Why does this screen shut up? I never know where on that. Okay. Thirteen minutes in. I got my new recording here, everybody that has the ability to plug a microphone in the bottom how to do it. The. Olympics LS one hundred I don't know how to do it. Some and have to go down to that being h where I bought it right down on thirty fourth street. See if they can help me out which by the way, I actually posted a picture of their business in on my Instagram that is the best run business. Them. Aaa AAA as Barney says it's Barna Galway's talks about AAA. So this is the best puck and run business in the middle of nowhere middle of fucking nowhere. You call them in like buck in ten minutes. Unbelievable, the battery whatever the hell you need. Flatbed truck to get flats. Whatever fuck out there that and being. Do you have a need electron man? And you're in the New York City area, go to them. They have everything. They have a zillion employee's. Everybody is knowledgeable about their section. They can help you out. It's like the reverse of best buy. We're best buy you feel like was there a plague in, I somehow survive, like where the fuck is everybody, you know. Doing best buys, walk around and ask the regular people. Do you work here? Do I have a blue shirt you like? No. But you have blue eyes at this point. I'm desperate, I was hoping maybe you were on your break. You just started your fucking shift. Being totally knowledgeable. And then I love they had like this way where no one can shoplift. They lately have like almost like a they bring the luggage out at the airport like you never touch what you buy. Until you've bought the fucking thing. It's genius. I absolutely love every time I go in there like fascinating. So. Plowing ahead here is I would put, like actually because it's Niyaz birthday. She's let me. She's a fucking Saint here sneak out and do my podcast. But then again, you know the podcast helps to buy birthday gifts. Telhami saying, so I'm starting to fucking this movie tomorrow, and I got I got a stay in movie shape here. So I got Neil these, these. She wanted Cup. She likes cupcakes better than cake. You know. So she wanted a cupcake for. Her birthday. So I guess sit there and passed all those things out watch everybody eaten him as I sit there eating fuck and Mediterranean salad. Peas. Cabbage. But I gotta tell you something, though it sucks, the first two bites, but then you eat it, and it's because it's so nutritious. It's just it gives you this fucking energy. And then I see everybody afterwards cupcake in the kind of lay in there. You know, they got the Itis is NIA told me about Charlie Murphy and all them back in the day. I feel great. So. I don't know if you see pictures of me you'll see that I am. I'm a little underweight, but that's kind of what you have to do, when, when you do these fucking things, you just have to be, you know, is much as all the fucking ladies are always bitch, moaning, and complaining about the shape. They have to be applies to mend to where it's like you're either the fat guy or you have to be in shape, what you can't be like middle ground, generally speaking, you know what I mean? I mean you can't be a fat guy. But then you're just going to play the fat guy, they're gonna fall down and break a fucking table. You know, and I didn't go to acting class to do that. So. Anyway. So I've been walking all around New York, and I'm just at that age man. I gotta get like fucking inserts and shit. I did find a place where I can go play drums. I've been having a great time doing that. Like I said, I just I just want this God damn. Thing to start finally it starting tomorrow and. You know, this goes back to the day, like whenever I used to have like a. If I was doing Letterman or anything like that a big fuck and gig. I remember just sitting there and just being like God I wish I was going on now. Let me just go on now and get it going. So I'm very excited to start tomorrow. And we've been doing a lot of rehearsals and. Just a great bunch of men and women on the on the shoot. So it's, it's going to be a lot of fun. I am hoping. Hopefully, I don't go in and fuck it all up get fired and replaced and all that bullshit. All right. Well, you know, something advertising hasn't come yet. So what stay I do a little bit of. Do a little bit of I'll do some of the reads here for the week. Some of the reads for the week by the web, and taking the subway, which Versi I was hanging out with bursley, right wise. Smoke a cigar with them. And. He had come down. He's doing a day on the movie and he left his current some parking garage. And it turned out it was closed for the night. So he had the fucking crash at my apartment. So no, biggie. So we walk across the street. It's hilarious. I know he hates to subways. So I thought walking down the stairs, taking the subway. He almost almost like broken to hives. Like. This two types of fucking people in New York City, there's people who take the subway and then in their head they like someday. I'm going to get to a certain level and I'm never taken this fucking thing again. And then there's other people who are just like the subways great, it's easiest way to get around town, even with the delays, and all that shit. And then like. I love the subway because that's where all the people are. You know, you get to hear the music you get to hear the arguments to see what people are wearing you go through the different fuck and parts of town. You see the people getting on get off to fuck and education. See people screaming and yelling. You see interesting things where somebody comes on. And he starts begging, you know, right before you get to another stop and he's in the middle of just finished his fucking speech, and then someone comes else comes on starts begging. And it's like oh, wow, we got to beggars on the same car. What happens when they meet is some sort of? Unwritten rule that I came here and begged I all of that shit the musicians. I love it all by love at all Burs E ON hand not a fan. Versus Versi likes leather seats. He likes air conditioning. He's goes, yeah. Yeah, yeah. I like that stuff. I like that stuff. Just kept kept telling me was soft. You're soft, you the kind of guy who goes to the gym who just go downstairs. You put on a robe and you, you go right? Any take a steam. The may. I've known the man for twelve years. I've never seen him pick up a barbell ever ever. It just goes down. I just goes into the steam goddess unbelievable. Let's also I love him. So it was I got a big kick out of taking down. And then, of course it was hot as shit. And the thing was late. And I was just pretending not to notice, but I was just getting totally entertained watching him getting frustrated.

I gotta watch my fucking mountain my kids around denied just car straight. They're the worst. Anyways, we take my wife for a walk or something like that. Why wait for the damn read to come in? Or maybe I won't I've been going around been doing nothing but spots out here in New York, and I've been putting together. My new our and I gotta tell you it started off a little rocky. Sorry. And now it's, it's, it's moving along. I. Actually went up at Gotham the other night. Went on second to last one on after Richard boss, who fuck and murdered his always, and. Tried out my new abortion chunk. All the shit was working Michael Jackson shit. All this shit was gonna tell you on my topics. But everything was working ripped on a few other things, and literally it's literally my favorite thing to do in the world. Other than hanging out with my wife and kid. My favorite thing in the fucking world is writing the new our. And just bombing and being silly and stupid doing the whole self deprecating thing, just putting the whole fucking thing together, and I got a feeling that I'm going to have such an awesome time when this movie and I'm going to have at least forty five minutes of new material. Right. Is my special comes out. And then I have the leftover shit that we didn't use. So I'll have a an hour that I'll be really proud of that. I can go on the road enough feel like fucking ripping people off. But I'm thinking maybe I'm going to do a couple of comedy clubs. You know, there's room is that the punchline in San Francisco, my close. I heard. Dave chapelle. Molly was saying that Dave Chapelle. You know, went in furnace, I know politicians out there to try and save the place. So it might get saved. But either way, I'm going to try to get out there in August. And just dues many shows, as I can't if the old girls going to get shut, man. That's like one of the most legendary, they can start a petition out there to save it like. I don't know. I feel like the punchline in San Francisco, that's, that's literally sacred ground. And we have lost some big wants a punchline in Atlanta was a huge one to see that one finally go. I loved loved loved that club. And the punchline is San Francisco that was like the dream. Dream to go there. They had this big competition out there. The San Francisco internet, San Francisco, International comedy festival, and all the comics that I loved before. You know, I got into stand up at all seem like the all went out there and did well at the Dana ghouls and one in particular, who, unfortunately, just passed away, was Maria fell Zony, and I remember. I just remember she she had that credit and. I don't know man, like she she was just a beast of a comic. And she was always super nice to me. And I remember. It was funny. I was so walled off when I started. She came up and gave me a hug, and I didn't even know what to do when she just laughed. She goes, she goes built Burr, Jesus Christ. She goes, I can teach you how to hug, and she had, like that openness about her. So I wasn't like walled off or whatever, and I actually became a better hugger like knowing her. And I remember she was like one of the few like. Female headlining commerce. Boston was just really overly testosterone in that shit. And she just held her own would fuck and murder, and was an absolute sweetheart. And I actually tweeted out a. A link. She does a whole speech on she got cancer at went away and then ended up coming back and. I can't even wrap my head around this. She just knew, you know, it was the doctors told there was nothing that they could do shit, a very rare form of liver cancer that she called. There was two types, the kind that you could create. And then she said, the dick suckered coming. On fortunately, she got the second kind and. She just knew she wasn't going to make. She just decided out. She was going to go out, and she went out to California, which has that law where mercy law, whatever they call it where they'll take you out and you literally choose the day. And she chose the day when she was going to die, and I have friends of mine that called erupt Sega by it's fucking hard core, man. Just really says a lot about what kind of person she was that. She could do that. She could go out like that because I was talking to people, I would be I would just. Kicking and screaming going out, like, I don't know how somebody has the courage to do that. But her stand up act was like that. So I have a link to it. On my Twitter page. It's pretty pretty inspiring and put singing into perspective because I wasn't I knew that she was sick. But I don't know if she gets sick again, and I've been complaining about some stupid bullshit, which is half my fucking podcast and then seeing her story being like Jesus Christ. I was bitching about this, and she was going through that shit there. So anyways, rest in peace to Maria and another. Jesus christ. Acts live for fucking ever. All I can say they just fucking live forever. And I'm still alive. So what does that say about me? Oh, the little bit about this movie. I'm doing. I'm playing firefighter. And we actually went I was at random island Randall's island or some where they train all the fucking. New York Fire Department, and they actually had us go out there, and they had the buildings one of the buildings, the Dennis Leary foundation donated. Thank you. Dennis leary. O's actually helped out some actress, and we went in there, and they lit the fuck and place up and you had to go in there with you fuck and mask on and all that shit. Learned a lot of shifts. In one day, first of all, how heavy that God damn gear is it's ridiculous. And like it's like this to fight this, the first this is a fight just getting to the fire like the shape that the people have to be. In fact, I saw the all the, the, the probe's is what they call them. The new ones jogging around looks like a military operation, like a platoon going by there was this one woman, leading the tune of the probe. And I looked at her duty the ease with which she could've just picked me up and slum me over fuck and shoulder or thrown me across the fuck in Rome like shape that these people are in is ridiculous. So we're all about your fucking actors and. The first fire was on the second floor walking up to flights. Fucking stairs with all this shit on. Like I was having heart palpitations and then it was like I get in there and put it out. It was like dude, I got a fucking. Let this thing burn a little more men. I got a fucking get my shit together. And that was really cool. Like all of the stuff like you, when you host the fire you go in circular motions clockwise because, for whatever reason God knows I don't have a good science math physics background. If you go counterclockwise. You draw the flames out, you. So when I tell you, we were only in their in their all of thirty seconds each and. Walk back down the stairs. And it was just like I don't know, you know, they have all these different workouts. Now, when you just see people who are in killer shape is like the boxing workout remember, what was that guy who had the fucking, the tai-bo workout, the UFC workouts these people like lifting big tires and throwing them because they want to be in the shape of USC fighter without taking any hits to the head. You could literally have the firemen workout. It all it would involve. It would be is you buy all the firemen gear you put it on. And then you just start walking up and down the stairs in your house. And watch the pounds fall off of you. I say for firefighters obviously already had a tremendous amount of respect. For what you do. Okay. But now seeing how difficult it is. And you know it's just like it's ridiculous. It's unbelievable into, and they had one, we went in there that we will, like chronic the second time he did it. You had to walk up three flights of stairs. I really thought I was gonna have a fucking heart attack. He went up three flights of stairs. And then you crawl around with the mask on which is really you know, they ask people that they were like claustrophobic or whatever, but whenever I feel feelings like that. I just kind of just chill. You know, and I just go like, right? This isn't a real fire. This isn't even real smoke. Bill. This is movie smoke. Okay. If you have a problem, you can just take the mask off, you'll be fine. So it's very easy. So we went into this room, and it was just like it was just pinched black. You crawl one guy goes one way or the other guy goes the other way, and you're crawling around your hands, and feel long the wall. And then doing a sweep with the other hand trying to find the dummies that they put in there and. Like I just can't imagine going in there. It's an actual fire these people in there, every second counts, whether they're gonna live or die or. Have, you know? Moderate damage to like life altering brain damage from lack of oxygen, and then thinking about your own all the shit that you have to block out is. It's a whole other level because it's sometimes, you know, they send you on these acting things, and you just start thinking yourself like Jesus Christ. This is like you know, this is one day on the movie. You know this is really hard core for one day on the movie. And then when I was in that room crawl around, it's like, oh now I get it. Now I get it. So this is for when I do, this will have all those thoughts in my head. Which will add to what you do. You know, I'm a comedian. I don't understand acting. It should be saying this out loud, but. It's like okay that's why did I came out? And that's what I really started thinking of, like, why can't if that was a real thing I would be thinking about my daughter, I would be thinking about my wife you thinking about dying in, like, I would think the first time you go in there. And then you got like wait a minute. Wait, these are all bad thoughts this shit. I gotta block this out. I have to just, you know do fucking job in here. I don't know tremendous amount of respect. And also, you know, a lot of. Firemen are also cigar smokers you know, you seem hanging out in front of the fuck firehouse smoking a cigar. And I got this very few jobs that seem cooler than being a stand up comedian, but I talked to a lot of these firefighters in this like they wanna work. It's like I was talking to one. He goes look off the record. He goes, I don't want anybody get hurt, of course. But you want shit to catch on fire 'cause you wanna go work. You get the adrenaline going. It's fucking exciting and they were saying, how this not as much work because the way the buildings in the fire code and how Manhattan in Brooklyn and all that. Like all the money here, now, the these are investment properties. But like back in the day when a lot of these guys, I talked to a work and seventies eighties nineties. You know you could buy a building for nothin'. So there was no money in these things would catch on fire. There was a lot of work. I guess back then is, is what I learned. So. Anyway. Some reason, I'm not getting the fuck and reads here for the week. Get hit. Pause here to finish this thing because I just want to waste you guys time and babble like another fucking sixty minutes here. So anyway, the shoot starts to mall, very excited about that. So hopefully when I come back on here, I'll have some, some of your emails here for the week, right? All right. I'm back. I'm back. I got the reits. And of course they just disappeared. All right. Let's read this one here. This comes from trailer, trash, dear Billy board, brains. What do you plan to do while hanging out in your trailer while filming your fancy movie? You going to master French read any good books, or just jerk it to basic cable. Love your red head go. Fuck yourself. Well, I imagine, I'll be learning my lines. I think we'll the first day up by have. Shooting, scenes, and I'm in both of them. So I won't be. Won't be mastering, French reading any books or jerking off hate to disappoint you. But I did go out and I bought a drum throne snare standing a practice pad to keep my drum chops up. I brought my French flash cards, and that type of stuff, but. You know, I bring like healthy food to the set and I don't bring a watch and I don't bring my cellphone down there. So. I think I don't know just how I work I in. You know, I've done acting gigs actors are looking at fucking social media right before. Okay. Everybody hit your mind. They can put it away. I just can't see how that, that helps your performance. So when I go to when I go down there, I don't have a watch, and I don't have my my phone. I leave it in the trailer. And I just look at it like of casino like I don't know what time it is. I don't care what time it is just here. You know, to do this job, and all of a sudden some taps me on the show. New we'll break for lunch guy. Must be the middle of the day. And I find that that. That works best for me as opposed to fuck in going on Twitter and reading the latest thing. Somebody's offended about then I get all worked up about that. And then this scene is completely different. You really mellow in this siege. Remember this you just came out of a spa to second sight of going, what the fuck you can't say this bucket thing. Now it's just not good for me. So but if there is some downtime. Yeah. I think I'm going to. Do some of the shit Dave illeg taught me about because I haven't gone to him in a minute. And I've lost some of the technique that he taught me that was awesome. So I think I'll just be doing that. All right. Great question, though. Break question. All right. Jeopardy james. Hey, Billy, bald. Fuck love the podcast, but that mouth breather who wrote in about James didn't do him Justice. This is the guy who can't be beat on jeopardy jeopardy. James is a degenerate, gambler from Las Vegas and it definitely shows he bets all his money on double jeopardy, and doesn't break a sweat. You know, what's the word degenerate it? Always precedes gambler is never degenerate, alcohol degenerate wife-beater. It's always degenerate, gambler. Right. Talked about that. It's like ornate. It's always an ornate theater. Ornate is never used unless you're talking about theater. What's crazy? Is that early this early this year? I meant to say earlier. Earlier this year. Alex trebek's was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer. No pretty much a death sentence. He said fuck that I want to stick around until this James guide beats the record now Alex is almost in remission. And it's tumors are about fifty percents smaller James has made jeopardy. The number one game show, make six figures day beating teachers librarians professors. I gotta tell my wife about this. He's trying to beat the all-time record for wins he second right now. And to add insult to injury. He said he learned everything from children's books. I think he's playing a game there. He psyching out his opponent. Definitely. Check it out and do a show in Reno, again me and my wife, love your comedy. Thanks go. Fuck yourself. I love Rena by absently. Love that place when my favorite places to perform. Highly highly highly underrated city. It really gives you a look of what? I don't know kind of like what those west towns used to look like I just love you would. How they used to try to stop people driving across country was, they would have a big fancy sign like Bakersfield Fresno, California towns have them, and they'd have a little slogan, Lena, like Reno's. What is the biggest little Tom town in America or something like that? I love that ship. All right. Girl used to weigh three hundred pounds. All right. Hey Billy, but much. I met this girl who apparently used to weigh, three hundred pounds. She is lost one hundred pounds in a little over a year. So I never saw at three hundred she's five ten and still on the high side. But she's turns, she's determined to keep losing weight. I'm six three one seventy five. Jesus Christ bony. Son of a bitch, and don't really date, heavy women. So here's what you are now. So here's the thing, though, I'm gonna two year rut and thirty two I've been trying lately, to get myself back out there and the girl does seem really cool. And I don't really want to wait for her to lose more weight before trying to ramp things up because I'd come across is really shallow. It's like shallow hell this whole fuck any Email, but I don't want to end up with a fat chick. Yeah. Do this nothing wrong with that either. In this whole fucking, you know. You know. Women don't want to end up with the fucking loser. You know what I mean? You don't end up with the fetched chick, you know. You set yourself up a heartache you're gonna fall in love with her, and she's gonna fuck and drop a cardiac arrest at fifty that's fucking thing about this whole being proud of your body. It's like. Okay. I get that. But you realize just because you're proud doesn't mean you're, you're fucking your vitals are ecstatic about that double cheeseburger about ready to eat. And especially if you have kids, you know, you gotta get the fuck and weight off met man, man, or woman should I assume she will keep losing weight whose doom she will stay as she is now. Or go p- should I proceed as if she'll eventually put that weight back on? She has a pretty face and some potential if possible I'd love to hear what the lovely NIA, thanks. She's not here right now. She's celebrating birthday. Without me. So I need a rep this up. I would. I don't do this really weird way to go. Into you're not really saying what you'd think about her you just talking about how she looks. So if you have issues with fat chicks, I wouldn't fuck and get involved with one who could potentially become fat, again, 'cause you're gonna break heart. All right, if you're into her is a person I would say precede. All right. But if you're not, then I would leave it alone, simple as that simple as that, but I'm looking back here, the shit, these said she does seem really cool. You're in a rut. I mean it just sounds like you wanna go out and get laid when you're trying to fuck somebody in the best shape as possible honest with you, if you trying to get back out there to, you know, think finally settle down and find somebody, you know, you don't let this chicks getting in shape, so she can get a bunch of dick. Then maybe guys are on the same page. I don't know because we'll have to have that conversation. All right. Relationship education and blow jobs. They will. I've been listening to your podcast as two thousand ten twenty six isn't that amazing? That means you a seventeen when you started. Is that right? Then I did the math right yet. It's crazy. I think the podcast emails has helped me avoid making mistakes through college when it came to relationships. Well, that's great to hear. I just wanted to say that the blow job Email is a classic case of a lot of things that you've talked about. All right. So last week, somebody or the other day somebody wrote in was talking about how they married some woman, and now that they're married this, they found out that this person does not like to give blow jobs, which is really high up there on shit. You should have discussed before you got married. So all you guys, not engaged to, you know, you gotta have that conversation. All right. Talk about how many kids, you want how you wanna raise them religion. Whatever you wanna do. At some point, you just gotta make the hard left and be like, all right. Let's talk blow up. She. What do you think you liking it? You're not liking it frequency talk about blow jobs. All right, the biggest lesson I've learned from you could have helped him avoid this parentheses, unless his wife, just totally one eighty which happens is communications everything. That's right to get what you want. You have to know what you want and that takes time. So don't fuck up figuring out what you want by being distracted with shit. You don't you know, this is pretty pretty deep twenty six year old to know all this year on the right. I wish I knew all this. When I was twenty six he said, dated a few girls that wanted more, and I could have fallen into the trap of changing in certain ways, ignoring things, I knew I wanted in life, I where I wanted to live or what pipedream I wanted to pursue a what my type of girl is of athletic yet. Not you have to be totally selfish. When you look for somebody when you're single. You know, ask for everything. That's what that's what you need to do. All right, dated one girl who never blew me. We had sex for four months. And she never once went down there, who am I change her. I just moved on. And we ended amicably thanks all the advice. All right. You listen to this person. This person is becoming a jet I in the game of life of what they want male of female, this, this, no fucking reason to settle. I think that's what I had a problem with this guy talking to the girl who weighed three hundred pounds at one point it just seemed like he was settling. Seemed like he wasn't an confident place in his life. I've been in a bit of a rut, and I need to get back out there. And at that point, you just using the other person. You know, I mean also it all depends on how you come at him. I tell you right now, you would be surprised what honesty does for your sex life. Women are not is closed off. They enjoy sex to Kate, but they also enjoy knowing where they stand, the most and men have a horrible reputation of lying to them and playing fucking games. And then they end up getting hurt not saying that women Jesus Christ, like the fuck and kings of manipulation. They don't they don't do their bullshit. But I'm just saying, you know. You know, you gotta know what the other person is thinking, if, if you're going to be able to figure out and that's their bullshit. So you'd be surprised. You know, where's this going? You need us, go nowhere. I'm not ready for a relationship, you know. So what you just wanna fool around with me. Yeah, I think you gorgeous. I would love to. That's it. Don't they don't like it? Then you with it at I don't know. I don't know why that works or why it did work for me. I don't know how that works in post metoo fucking era, but it used to used to work for me and look at how I look, I found the more honest, I was in the more front all that shit that I thought would make someone running another direction. They actually founded. Borderline quaint like, oh my God. Honesty, I remember this. I remember people used to be honest with me when I was younger before. Everyone was just trying to fuck fuck me or whatever. All right. Women women's response to wife won't blow him. Just great. We're getting both sides of the fence here. All right. Thank you for doing this. I wish more women would right in like this. So people wouldn't be at the mercy of ignorant thought I felt compelled to write into you about this. I don't listen to you podcast. Religiously but my boyfriend asked for my opinion on this topic, and let me tell you I haven't I have a buck an opinion on this. All right. Buckle up everybody. She's going in. She writes, I fucking hate when women just air, quote decide that they don't like giving blow jobs and just won't do it. What do you think the rest of? Do you think the rest of like? What do you think the rest of light giving blow jobs? That's the sense. She wrote, I really wish she wrote the she spellcheck here. How fucking selfish do you have to be to think that someone you're better than? Oh my God. I was so looking forward to this, how fucking selfish do you have to be to think that somehow okay, you're better than let's say eighty percent of the heterosexual, female population, sucking? Dick is part of being a woman and being in a heterosexual relationship. You don't just get to quote, not like sucking dick, put on your big girl, panties and fuck and do it like the rest of us. Jesus christ. Ladies and said that fucking bad. My god. At least it's fucking on the outside. You go down on a woman. It's like fucking working on a van half the engines under the front seat. We all pay taxes. No one is above that. And if you're woman, you suck dick period side for the rent. But I knew of anyone would appreciate it. It was you. All right. Well, here's the thing. I don't want I wouldn't want someone blowing me because they felt like it was bid job. I'd want them to be into it if the not fucking into it, then then it just pick it feels weird. So then it's just like all right. Forget it forget it. And then that's something that I want, you don't want to do it. So we go our separate ways. Much as I agree with you passion on the subject, I would just say that if you don't like doing that. Then you need to bring you need to bring it up before the guy says I do. Yeah. I don't like doing that. I mean Jesus fucking Christ. Yeah. That is that is not a smart way to run a relationship she can be relationship with the guy and you're not gonna blow them then you know. Okay. And your modern woman. So obviously, you're not cooking or cleaning either, and you're not blowing me. And so what exactly are you going to do? I don't understand like, and I know all of that sounded misogynistic. But like, you know, for some reason, all the female shit is like misogynistic, they don't have to do it, but I'm still supposed to fuck in hold the door for you defend your honor pay for everything and all these fucking bullshit. Women out there, sit there in fact out that can split it. Check fifty. Well, yeah, they all talk a good fuck and game. They all talk a fucking good game. So. You know, I'm not saying stay at home in not live your dream or anything like that. But like, you know, I love crooked for my wife cooking for. Somebody is one of the greatest fuck and things you can ever do. And we have a rule in our relationship, okay? If she cooks, I do the dishes, if she cooks for me. I do the dishes and everything gets done. But to just be like, you know. I'm not talking cooking for you at all. Go fuck yourself fend for yourself. I'm not fucking blowing you. I'm not doing laundry. I'm not doing any of this shit, and it's just like, okay, so then I have to do all of that we're not even split in this fifty fifty fucking Edith. Warden. Why don't you when you hear enough take a walk there? All right. You know it was going to end. There doesn't it always in some level of fucking, ignorance, all right? That's the podcast this week, very excited to get started working tomorrow, and it's an amazing cast and everything. So I am thrilled. And I'm also thrilled that a few times, I think, like once a week, I get like a day off. So that's the night I can take out my lady, and I can go out and go do a little bit of stand up and act like a fucking idiot. And then the next day, get to wake up and act in a movie again. You know how great. How does my fucking life and the Boston Bruins are two games away from winning a Stanley Cup too long. Two games away. I am by no means.

746: The Kobe Bryant Episode

"Welcome back to the John podcast. I'm Johnny, and I may AJ and you sound really excited today. Johnny cobby because black mambas in the house. Let black mamas in the house. Yeah. Snakes there in the house. No koby. Bryant is coming up shortly. And we're excited share what he's been up to you. If you're new to the show each episode, we pull back the curtain and share inside information from our world famous boot camp. This is a program we've been running for twelve years here in L A where we teach men and women how to build real connections. They need to succeed socially, professionally and romantically. Absolutely. We've worked with corporations military special ops and top performers that trust our decade plus of experience to increase their emotional intelligence are boo campus full of scientifically proven drills tragedies to enhance your ability to command respect communicate effectively and build your Chrismas, Johnny. We talk a lot about how technology smothering us meaningful conversations and smartphone free dinners feel like ancient idea. Ios. But we believe the science is clear human connection is vital to succeed in business love and friendships yet. No, one seems to be teaching you how to do that. So as a demand for connection grows, and the supply diminishes we're here to help you develop those social skills that school didn't teach if you want to discover more head on over to the Arte, charm dot com this month. We're talking about relationships how to build them from friendships business relationships are Mantika partners. That's right last month, and we dove into the topic of happiness. We learned that relationships are heavily tied to our overall happiness. What I've enjoyed this month is learning about the influence of our social networks and those norms that are passed throughout them as well as how to strengthen and deepen existing relationships. I've had so much fun research topic. I certainly learned a few things this month. And today, we're speaking with the one and only Kobe Bryant. Yes. Kobe Mamba Lakers champion and now storyteller, or at least that's what he writes on his job applications these days, he. Has some nuggets to offer not only about relationships, and who you let into that inner circle. But also, the powerful impact that mentorship and coaching his hat in his life. So no more beating around the Bush. Let's dive into it. We really appreciate you stop by. And you've been busy since your basketball career and starting granted e studios and log going on an Oscar award winning filmmaker. And now you're launching wizard series of fantastic fantasy book part of a series of books that are gonna be coming out geared for teaching children some life lessons, and what was the inspiration for granted. Well, the inspiration for granted was how to create stories that raise a certain awareness of how to deal with the journey within the emotional journey. I feel like a lot of kids. You know, we teach them certain actionable, things basketball soccer, football, whatever the case may be. But we're missing the emotional component that comes along with that right anxiety that comes along with that, you know, the anger or the love and all these emotional things that take place from play to play. We're missing that teaching moment. So the best way to do. At least what I found with my. Children is not to tell them about it. Because after a while just like, I I wanna hear no more. But instead, you kind of put it into something that's creative. Right. So through entertainment through fantasy through magic you start creating life lessons that are easier to digest. Yeah. In a way, it feels like you're mentoring all of us through your works. At granted. He and the book itself has a number of characters in the book. Do you feel that the characters in the book you're drawing from personally teammates mentors along the way combination combination? So the coach himself roller be wizard somebody that was inspired by some of the coaches that I've had pass namely, Phil Jackson. Right, right. And the name was an art actually was inspired from me. Fill was a big guy going to locker room. He's like burn sage stuff. I'm like, dude. You know, they might drug test us in which he did since you know, what I'm saying like, but he's a big guy. And then another great. Tour personnel looked up to and studied a lot was John wooden who is known as a wizard a Westwood. So I took the wizard of Westwood and the Zing guy, and I combine those things and created wizard. Okay. Rice, a lot of it's inspired by those two coaches and Bill Russell's well, and then the kids themselves yet is a lot of me there. There's also a lot of some of the teammates that I've had passed a pulled a lot of inspiration foam my daughter's team that I coach now twelve year old girls team k and you'll see a lot of those same kind of characteristics within the characters. And so it was something he mentioned about how the try to instill the lessons and your children, and they were getting tired of hearing the those lessons, but the be able to put them in the form of a story where you can emotionally invest in the characters in the charity, and then learn from them through these narratives is a very powerful thing. And it's something that we've been discussing on the show for a while now. Yeah, we all have this hero's journey that we're on the movie that we're living, and it's amazing. To be able to create a story that encapsulates your hero's journey and all the lessons you've learned along the way. Thanks, you know, it's it's a it's, you know, it's funny when it comes to the art of creating you have to have kind of this left brained this writing rain approach of creativity. Right. But then as you said hero's journey that doesn't involve a lot of structure. Right. Right. So you also gotta start you gotta be fundamentally sound when it comes to telling your story and make sure you hit the beasts that are necessary. Making sure you're taking the the the reader or the viewer through a journey of character growth. And so, you know, you gotta sit down you got a map it all out. You got to figure out what's going to happen. Not only in this book. But when going to happen in subsequent books. Right. You know, and it it's fine. It's fun map. And all that out man as this something that you've been working on for a while. Now that it's always been the back your mind yet has been doing my last year playing is when I wrote the whole world. Okay. It's about two thousand years of history. I sat down and. Thought about what it is that I wanted to create how wanted to create it and came up with the magic the rules for the magic and how it relates to sports right in. And then from that I started thinking of characters. He has no made all starts with the character. You can have the best plot in the world the coolest looking world that anybody's ever seen. But if the characters aren't ringing true, it doesn't work, right. If they're not relatable on a great story. And I feel like one of the big lessons in this. First book in the series is really the characters struggling to overcome their fears. In your youth days in basketball. What were the biggest fears that you are struggling in overcoming while, you know, I learned at an early age from something actually has nothing to do with basketball, but everything to do with that was in a karate class. And I was just are now as a white belt, and for some reason why we have these days during the week. We, you know, everybody kinda sits in a circle, and you do get out with another belt, you work on all the things that you were just working on. And so I was fairly talented. Right. So the guy goes okay since all, right? You're going to go against this guy. This guy's a Brown Bill and he's like two years old. And I'm like what I'm not going to fight this, dude, man. He crazy. Like, no, I'm not, you know, now, you have the headgear on you got all this stuff on right? You've got foot gloves on old thing. Right. And I was freaking out completely freaking out. And he told me at the beginning of class will the whole class. I'm freaking out. And so a wind up fighting this guy, and I get my butt kicked. Right. But I remember. That was about eight years old car the way home. I remember thinking that my imagination made it worse in my own head. It was going to be the worst thing ever. Then I actually fought him. And it was it like, okay? Not did pretty did. Okay. Right. But that taught me a very early lesson is that we can get in our own heads so much. We can psych ourselves out so much. We almost talk ourselves into a fearful situation as opposed to just being and I've never forgotten that lesson and in muse, you touched on having to travel so much as a kid and really finding solace in basketball. Do you feel like your imagination was also playing a big part in your development and those two oh my God. Yes. Because it involves playing a lot by yourself. You know in Italy at the time soccer was instill is the best thing since slice Braehead. Right. And so when you go to the park, there's not a lot of kids back men that wanted to play basketball. So I had a lot of room for magic nation this autumn out there shooting. I'm imagining at the time being in the form playing at the Boston Garden, you know, here in the crowd, you know, acting as if I was the play by play announcer. And so this certain lose a lot of imagination there. Yeah. I know a big part of that as well was identifying those weaknesses in your game and imagining some of the other players you looked up to you in the skill. So that they are hoping to develop. I I watched a lot. And I studied a lot, you know, at the time. I didn't think it was studying. It was just like I rather be doing nothing else. I wanted to watch bird. I wanted to watch magic lodge Barclay Robinson Baylor on and on and on and on. And I'd try to imitate those moves, right? You know, and my left hand was week. I had to work my left hand. That's what I did. And it was just fun. Just rather be doing nothing else. It's that where it becomes. It's the obsession, right. It's like we wouldn't want to be doing anything else and everything that we're doing in that moment is pure joy. And it takes us away from wherever we are. And completely invalid us, but isn't it? That's that's such a. It's hard to find that thing that you love that much, isn't it? I mean that that's kind of the key to this whole deal, right? For those of us that are really lucky you can find with that thing is at a very early age are times requires a lot more work. It requires a lot of trying in experiments when you find that thing it's like. Right. You don't have to wake up in the morning and psych yourself up like oh, man. I got this today. I gotta get jazzed up every morning you wake up. You're like, I can't wait. I can't wait. And that's like that's more than eighty percent of the battle. I think I think that also if you're able to find something like that when you're younger as you get older, you can understand that process. And know what it's going to take for you to get focused in the something. At least it's it's how it's been for us. It does discovering a lot of new stuff for ourselves. Yeah. I mean, having struggles early on creates that strength and resilience that you're depend on as you become an adult those actually extremely important too. Because it's part of the story as well. Is that you don't run from those moments. Yeah. Right. Don't run from him you embrace them. Right. You got to embrace the storms. You know what? I mean. Yeah. But fears that we have the moments of suffering. They're all part of the process. They're all part of growth. It's nature. Ran you gotta. Able to handle those things man. Now, obviously, we know a lot about your relationship with Phil over the years two stints working together. How does it feel now that you're a coach and coaching your daughter's basketball team, you know, it's I just said to a video clip of our girls playing is like like nine and a half ten minute clip of the girls playing that I sent to them, and I just said just to make you smile, and he watched it, and he responded in very typical Phil way saying they they moved the ball. Extremely well. Anderson. How to deploy the defense, right? Like, very like, very bad. Like really looking at the execution of how they format triangles how they read angles or else and stuff, and he said, you should be very proud of girls are doing a great job. So I I keep them involved in how the girls are progressing for. Sure. And as a teammate you known for being intense is that intensity waned with your children now and coaching them. Now, it's different. So as a player the intensity comes from the action, Mike you on the court, you're entrenched in that kind of back that combat right? As a coach is different as a coach. Oh, my responsibility is to teach them how to fish. That's my responsibility and give them the fundamentals teach them how to think and then when they go out and play a let them coach themselves because they have to be able to problem solve. And when I see things that are incorrect just hold onto them. And then we can work on them. Impractical. Right. So as having the patient so allow them to go out there to think independently to make mistakes and all this other stuff, and then you can teach them patiently you in practice every day. It's funny. Johnny. And I learned a new term called law more parents as idea of parents for seeing the adversity and getting ahead of it before their children even feel the adversity. Nobody. No say sounds a lot different than than for your bring way. No. I think our job is parents is guidance. Right. You allow your kids to go out there and to live you allow them to make mistakes. And then you're kind of there to help guide them through that journey, right? So journey that they have to take. It's inevitable the ever go through this jury. I think it's our job that just trying to try to help guide them through it. And you're famous for having an alter ego Black Mamba, and compartmentalizing what was going on in that part of your career personally. So that when you stepped on the court, you are all business, and that alter ego changed the arc of your history. Your career in in basketball that imagination with Black Mamba? It sounds to me has been what's needed this flame with granite. Yes. It certainly part of it. I used to write adds a lot used to write ads. So I had a ad agency long long time ago, and I wrote ads for Nike my Nike as things of that nature so writing and imagination was always a part storytelling was always there. And yes, so the Black Mamba stuff all comes from that sort of imaginary world of creating something else. Right. But also learned from that that even through imagination things must come from truth. Right. Who am I wanna basketball court? I'm this thing. Right. So it has to be anchored in a form of truth. And that's what I try to do with what I'm creating now. And for the audience listening who hasn't had a chance to check out your book, we can pre-order it on Amazon Lazard series. It's part of five. What are the biggest life lessons that you hope the audience takes away from these books? Well, the biggest journey that you'll see the characters take which is really important for young men right now the rest of the novels all for I have female protagonists because. Okay. Because my daughter's you know, what I mean like, I just hope but right characters that are based around my daughter's but for this series. I felt it was very important for young men because as young men, we are tired of very early aged at any sign of vulnerabilities aside, a weakness. Crying. That's week. Don't do that. Right. Right. And so I think is very important for these young men to go through this journey of self acceptance, first and foremost, my because there are a lot of things that are personally holding them back that they've buried the consciously consciously that's holding them back from each in their full potential as young men, and as athletes until you square with those you'll never hit that full stripe. So the first one is a really big important story about self acceptance. And then from that self acceptance it teaches, you empathy and compassion because even though I can't see what magical journey hugest went on. I know that you've gone through one because I have as well. So that helps me better understand and relate to others. And then we'll progress to being able to have the bravery to share what it is what journey does that you you've just been on. And with the relationships with your teammates that you drew from in this book. And now looking at relationships off the court you. Feel like you've changed the way that you handle some of your friendships and relationships, obviously, you're well known for your intensity in the locker room. Yes. Yes. I I've had to mature as my playing days went on. Right. Because you start understanding that they're alive outside of the game. Right. There are personal things that happened in people's lives that are manifesting themselves through the game. And as a good teammate. I had to understand that and say, okay, let me listen to these guys. Let me let me get a better sense for who. They are as people. That's really the true way to to to bring out the best. And somebody else is I understand that person. Right. Where they're coming for. Exactly, listen was there a point in your career that brought that lesson to the forefront where you realize that you're gonna have to open up to these these other stories and to the to your teammates, and what they have going on having having children. Yeah. No because you have to think outside of yourself. You have an additional responsibility in you know, when you have kids it's like this roster spots abilities, the most important thing in the world. Right. And how do you raise had you raised a young child? You know, what do you do? So you become consumed with their life. You become consumed with trying to provide them with proper guidance and proper care, and it changes, you change you as a person man, and it makes you think more outwardly versus inwardly. And you talk a lot in in music about the sacrifices that were made throughout your career. Whether it's not spending time with your family not spending time with your friends not going on vacations. Those famous workouts that your teammates dreaded in that hard work gets us. They're part of the way but to achieve greatness, especially now, we look everywhere hustle, this hustle that work hard. What else is it that that goes beyond just the hard work? The effort is trying to balance. When off facets of life is really hard to do. Right. Like, how do you succeed at your craft? But how do you also have a stable family, right? That's like the never that's the that's the gazillion dollar question. How do you balance those two things, man? And I think that's the part that gets missed a lot. I mean, we all talk about the hard work. We all talk about. Okay, beat us. Be that be this be that. But what I figured out as I got older he's out about working hard in terms of putting in long hours. But it's about working smart. It's about working smart when you work smart. It gives you more time to be able to spend with your family, right and have that consistency. Because it's important to win off Assad's men. And as we talk about this whole university of created. What are you most excited about happening in this book series? Watching how young children respond to, you know, particularly young athletes like I was a young athlete, and it was like you'd have to pin me down. Give me to read a book. Right. You know, I was like dogs. I'm I to run I want to play this out nothing to do with me. So I think finally creating something in the market that is centered around young athletes, finally something that they can sit down and say, okay, not only my learning a life lesson from this, which we all know kids don't really care about right? It care about having fun while you're consuming content. And that it Senate around something that the actually enjoy doing and do right? So seeing their reactions to it is what I'm looking forward to and and how to your kids react to the the book. Do they put it down? They loved it. So like, I wrote it with them, you know, stories come from them the dialogue the conversation between each other. I mean, that's like a lot of our conversations and how we talk in the same sense humor in cadence. So a great deal of all of my series are inspired by my children. So and are there any teammates that made it into the book and in characters that you're yeah, they're bits and pieces of them. Certainly. I mean, you know, I remember having a teammate who could work and work in on his shot all day long. But soon as the game starts could do it can do it or had a teammate that you know, practice starts at ten thirty. They show up at ten thirty practices at one. They leave at one right conventional wisdom was say, okay. Call him a lazy bum and get him out of here. You know what I mean? But would you come to find out is that there actually other things that that that are truly the reason why he doesn't want to apply himself into extra work because he's more? So afraid of the failure. Like if I really put myself into this thing a hundred and ten percent and it still not good enough. Then how do I feel about myself? Right. Right. So there's there's a lot of things that I picked up in the input into the book and having a career professional career, especially that starts at such a young age and being forced into the spotlight. I know one of the things that Johnny. I talk a lot on the shows how to foster the right relationships with positive supportive people and not a weed out the negative relationships influences. And obviously some of your stature is going to have people from all walks of life wanting a piece. View. How do you assemble that inner circle of people that you trust? Whether it's a project like this book or on another areas of life. You know, people you can feel some people have a certain energy about them when there are people in the world that are focused and like have I wake up in the morning with a purpose. This is what I'm doing. You can feel that energy you can feel it because it's a kindred spirit. So those are the people that I tend to work with the line if you don't have that I can sense it. I can sense it. But we're also very disciplined if you're a person that's very distracted hanging around the wrong crowd. Not having a sense of purpose. We don't wanna be around if we don't want to be around it because that stuff a bring you down man stuff to bring it down. So we're we're very very disciplinary refocused finding you know riders editors story artists. You name it that that has like true true passion for what it is that they do. I think you've mentioned earlier of of being excited to get up everyday to to go to get after that is something that you're gonna be able to see in people. I mean, the how they approach their day. How how they feel about getting getting out there? How what type are they going to sleep to be prepared to take on? And it certainly as we've been discussing it on the show, if if you're afraid to go to bed because of what you're dreading the next day the next day should be spent in fixing that, right, right? Right. Right. Right. Versus hiding from it. Right. It'd be just staying bit. Pass on its own. No, not who we want around us. Now, you you claim that you you've you'd the achilles injury as your Mount Everest. And that's a fascinating mindset. Do you feel throughout your career? You had to create these Mount Everest in your mind to really reach that greatness. Well, yeah, you have winning championship you start the season. That's the mountain right now that mountain is made up bone million little steps right in little goals along the way. But yes, certainly do that you establish mountain. And then after that, you don't look to the summit forget about it. He came to see it just focused on the next step in front of you. Right. You put one foot front of the other one foot in front of the other. And you just keep your head down. You keep working you keep working keep working the next thing. You know, you find yourself at the top of the mountain. You know, I think it's really interesting that when Kobe had children his social circle change. It's certainly one of the biggest problems that our listeners struggle with. I know everyone is struggling in our relationships currently and trying to figure out how to build those new relationships it can seem like a daunting task especially if you had those friends forever and are now making that move. Now, we would encourage you. If this is something you're struggling with to take our free ten day challenge. It's designed to get you outside of that comfort zone.

So just focus on the basics the basics Wizner series novels done. And bring it to market with all those steps. Right. The other not. So the three knobs we're releasing this year all finished all finish. So now it's about executing right about execution and surrounding yourself with the team members who will execute. See? That's the beautiful thing is that we we've been very very fortunate to be able to do that have a great team ever great team. And so you just kind of you trust the process you trust their creativity. And you just turn them loose means really my job to make sure that they're pushing themselves every single day. So when I say, you have no restrictions on creativity. Be as creative as you want in design, and right, whatever. Okay. And they come and go is this. Okay. And I'm like, no, no. I don't think you're understanding. You know, I am not a designer. You have to tell me is this the best work. You can do if it is awesome. Right. So you got to hold yourself accountable. That's where we're going through now. And it's fun. Yeah. It's certainly a different challenge than the athletic pursuits earlier in your career when when you were facing retirement, realizing that this was going to be behind you. What were you thinking about the second act in your career? Well, you're always thinking all the wrong stuff. All right. What's the ba- was the biggest industry I can get into right, right? How can we generate the most revenue sort of any wrong? I kept running into a dead end. I don't know what I'm gonna do wake up every morning. I'll know what I'm gonna do finally said, okay? What it is. What is it that you love to do? I love to tell stories love it love it. All right. So what the heck does that mean? Right. So my wife asked me says what are you going to do? Now, going won't be a storyteller you go. All right. So let me get this strikes. So when we fill out a form or not Dalia is at school. She has to fill out a form says what is your dad's ocupation? She's gonna write storyteller. Is that what you're telling me right now? Oh, my. Yeah. I mean it worked well for wall. I guess subtle. You are not. I'm not not yet. Which get the idea. So once I made that decision then everything became about that how we just tell stories that are going to inspire another generation of athletes. I love that way. Our last month each month, we do a different theme last month was happiness, and it's about fighting passions and waking up to excited to go out there and how that's going to happen. Did you go through a time where as you were waking up as you're going through the day? Like, this is not working. I'm not happy. This is not. I'm obviously not doing what I should be doing for my last season playing basketball. Yes. And that's when I knew it was time to retire. You know, what I mean it did that moment? I had that. All right. Tom to hang it up, not look back. So that's how that decision was made. And so, but now no like I was going through the whole year writing writing writing writing right on you know, dear basketball, producing that rice will like the day after my last game. I was on a phone call with John Williams and Glen Keane, working on the production for deer basketball. So it was it was like after one thing we just moved right to the next on on we go and do you find yourself being a perfectionist? And like, oh, I I I'm not sure I can release this yet. I'm not sure it's right. And this creative process, obviously, it's a lot different than working on a jumper for writing. Yes. So going every single going over all the words. Right. So like, dear basketball, for example, when I wrote that I truly did follow a hero's journey. I just I just did it in five minutes. Right. So if you look at the structure of the piece that I wrote you'll see the same thing. We'll see the same thing you see the call to adventure. You'll see all that stuff in there and just hitting all those beats in a five minute span. But I was an absolute perfection came to that. Like every word must be well cared for the rhythm, the cadence the one thing I did know as I wanted to end it with a like five four three two one. Because in my mind, I was like John Williams is going to crush crush it. I don't know how. But I just know he will you know, that sort of thanks, and, but then after that, you know, you work with people that are the same way. Like, I mean, John Williams Glen Keane are perfectionist at what they doing. So just just back and let them let them be them. That's all. And I I feel that with all of this going on creative. And raising a family would what do you do with your free time now outside of the who's to coach my daughter's basketball team. No. But outside of that like, we'll do a lot of things together as a family like we we love going to movies. We love going to shows reload trying new restaurants, and you know, are sitting at home and playing you. We're a big family K fan. Yeah. We we love this stuff. We're like play headbands. And you know, so we try to do fun things with each other which becomes harder and harder because the kids schedules busier than mine, you know, but we try to find those those kind of intimate moments as a family, and how does the inner family competition work? Obviously you're known for being repetitive. Man. Listen, if you think like people that watch my kids play sports and say, okay, really competitive in his all. Yeah. I wonder why. So. Yeah. Because you haven't met them, mama. This is every bit as competitive as I am when it comes to that stuff. Man. I won't sit next to her when it comes to know if I gotta make her pick up to or pick. Oh, oh, yeah. No. And it's not going to be good that famous. Look you gave on the court. You're getting back now new she gets she asked me with the eyebrow. Oh, she's got that eyebrow. I've been you know, that thing pops up you're like, you know, what you want to switch. You want to switch seats receipts. You can play your mother. Now mentorship was a huge part of your basketball career who do you consider mentors? Now in the second act when I first had the idea of starting a studio the first person, I spoke to his Oprah and how she went about building Arpaio, and she was very patient with me, and we set on a phone by hour and a half and she walked me through her journey of how she built in other great mentors or people like shonda rhimes who is you know, pyre that she's built over the years, right and talking about character development, and how to write story and how to build teams and how to grow teams because the other thing is, you know, bringing bringing in young riders, and allowing young writers to develop in all of a sudden, they become show runners and all this stuff. And how do you do that Johnny is from apple Tim, cook Malpica up the phone and call them when it comes to structure of the company. How do you create a company that is that that is moving in one direction versus a company that is fractured silo and all? Other stuff, and I've been very very lucky to have some great mentors in my life, Debbie, Allen's another one very very lucky. To become the greatest in anything coaching is key. And it's such an overlooked concept. So many people are trying to build a business or get in shape, and they're going at it all alone. And it's funny. A lot of these things are taught in school, you could potentially learn about fitness and how to run a business without a coach, but it would take forever. And what we teach here social skills human connection. Tell me which school has that major. None that I know of it. If you struggle this coaching is the only answer, and if one of the best basketball players is going to tell you the coaching mentor. Ship helped him with his success. Well, then you should be looking into it as well. Most people don't even know that the social skills can be coached. But they can. And if your someone struggling to connect, professionally socially romantically, you're not alone. If you want to gain an edge near career or build a powerful network or meet that guy or girl that blows your mind, then you should definitely check out our boot camp program, go to your charm dot com slash boot camp where you could set up a call with one of our coaches and see if it's a good fit.

I'll get phone calls all get text messages every now, and then Kyrie Irving James harden, all these guys got want me to take a look at a piece of Phil. Or just have a question just about team dynamics. And while challenges that they may be facing because you know, twenty years, I'm pretty much. I've seen a lot. A lot. So I tried to talk to the guys as much as I can't genus is another one. So yeah, I try to spend enough much time as I can with those guys. I was curious in that studio when everyone's working and doing the thing and trying to create a creative atmosphere. Do you feel yourself bringing in so but the fills and into that room to let everyone do the thing. Yeah. You know, not you haven't had incidents going. We already kind of have that.

Kings Coaching Change

"He's the king misconduct podcast with Don the Greco at walk into the Monday edition of game misconduct. I am Don. Mcgregor monday. Always means EJ Radic from NHL now Monday through Friday, four to six PM eastern time began a network. How are you, sir? I'm good. How are you today? Doing well better than John Stevens let go off Angeles yesterday. And I think I had mentioned to you. I was out in LA last week. I talked to somebody close with the kings about how they were playing. And he said if I didn't know any better, I would think they're trying to get the coach fire. So ironically, wink later, he ends up getting beat. I listen, I always feel bad for any coach that gets fired. There's always more reasons than just the Xs and the os. You've got goaltending issues COPA tars and played. Well, they've had injuries. But how taken aback where you that? He was let go so early in the season. Well, that was the buzz, right? That that they were going to do it last year. We didn't I don't think we had any coaching changes or. Very end of the season. Yeah. So, but that was kind of the buzz. They didn't get off to good starts. They've they haven't played. Just haven't played. Well, I don't know what else to say about it. I mean the theme that's you know, worst goal differential in the National Hockey League right now. So. Arjun oil. You're not behind the scenes in the room. John Stevens been I think he's a good hockey, man. I think he's he's someone that seems better suited as an assistant coach the head coach. I think that's where he's had more success. But that's not to say that in the right circumstances. He couldn't be successful head coach he came into an LA franchise on the other side of their run where they won their two Stanley Cups. This is the slower group it's a top heavy group. And I think this is going to be a challenge for we'll Willie Desjardins in and going forward because it's you know, Johnny quick is out. I think John Campbell orchestra Jack Campbell is okay. But you know, they need exceptional goaltending. I think with the with the roster they have in front of them. It's like I said, it's a top heavy. They're slow on the wing. And you know, maybe just a change in voice. It'll be good. I'm interested on they hired. Marco Sturm is an assistant coach and maybe. See the bigger picture in LA. Isn't Marco Sturm is going to be the head coach that's being maybe next year down the road because willing to Jordan might be just kind of that guy to help transition Marco Sturm into the role because he impressed a lot of people when he was coaching team Germany at the Olympic and appointing over metal there last year. So and NHL experience. I mean, he played the National Hockey League for a long time. So he knows the league. But we'll see we'll see how it goes. But I think it was a tough spot runny coach to come in there because you know, they're the kings high. And as as a franchise were, you know, have receded a little bit as some of these guys have gotten a little older, and they've had some cap casualties that they've had to move guys out. They haven't drafted all that. Well, that's gonna kill you. I mean, that's what it's really about. You can pick up any free agent Yuan. You got to draft. Well, yeah. All in every sport EJ. That's where it really comes down to you can have all the cap space you want to sign a bunch of free agents. But if you can't build a core through the draft, they're just not going to be able to have sustained success in this league. And and. Right. That was a problem for for for the kings for awhile now. So they move on and use your right? Everybody's talking about Marco storm coming out of the Olympics as a possible head coach. And maybe it'll happen all Angeles. How about this? Daddy j Calgary Vancouver. And Edmonton one two and three in the division for the first time since two thousand and nine, and it's amazing that Vancouver just doesn't seem to quit. And this. This Patterson is really starting to make a name for himself. Fear is the clear front runner for the Calder. Yeah. Patterson is the only word I have for him is brilliant. He's just a brilliant young player. He is so much fun to watch the game on Friday night against the avalanche. Just a back and forth. Crazy game seven six in overtime. He has five points. He made some wonderful plays in the game and scored the tying goal, and he really should have had a penalty shot. It should have been a penalty shot awarded to him in overtime. He could've scored the game winner and all the time. Would been just unbelievable way to cap that game. But they you know, he has just been so much fun to watch. And when you add into the fact rock Besser and board at you know, they've got some good young players there. But they've got a lot of injuries particularly on the blue line. Alex Adler is out of his out. And yet they come to play on every night. And I give a lot of credit as I did last year. Travis green. I just think that he's got these guys focused on the task at hand night after night. And you know, we'll see how sustainable it is. But they're fun to watch these kids and Pederson if you haven't stayed up late to watch the Vancouver Canucks. Watch the connects to watch that said he is really. And I think they come into play the islanders next Tuesday. I usually don't Mark down the dates when the conduct come the way the islanders, but I will do everything I can to try to get the Barclay center to watch young cutters in because he is a brilliant player. They have the is. And the islanders are red hot to you wanna see them five straight win. Over the weekend. So they're rolling. It. It's really in the end. The goaltending has been great been very good. You know? It's funny. Somebody posted the the photo like the NHL dot com have the leaders and they have a photograph of the leader in particular category. And the same percentage and goal against leader on this particular day on Saturday. And I don't know who which which guy was leading which I guess I could go look, but it was y'all a lot we didn't one category and tallest Greis. We did the other. And I thought that was really a touch of irony that here. These guys were they were getting, you know, really hammered being as being not good. And you know, I I feel like both of them. You know, I don't think they're both gonna play that high high level as the season continues. I think they're both capable guys that when they get help from their teams they they can play. Well, and I think the honors are definitely playing better in their own end and helping bright and he's got a nine forty four save percentage as we speak, and you know, and then. On the other hand lock is in Boston playing for a you know, a team that is known to play strong and play well in their own end. And he's got a one forty five goals against the nine fifty two percent. So I guess a lot is the gold against guy crisis. Save percentage guy. But you know, it's funny that those guys are playing so well in, you know, robbing Leonard's been into islanders. He's been terrific too. So give Barry trots in that group. A lot of credit. I said to you before gone. I think that trots is then, you know, he comes in is the most experienced revered kinda coach the honors of had in their franchise since Alar, which tells you a lot about how Ben so give him credit who knows if staying of a long term, but right now they are playing well our first place in the metropolitan division. I think there's fix it. Oh against their metropolitan division rivals this year. So they've just got to be thrilled with the way things are going. Now if you like offense, he Jay. And I know you're a big offense guy, and you see all the goals watch a game and watch. She game involving the avalanche. Because that that's almost like a football score. The Broncos are playing for God's sakes, a six five loss to Calgary which Calgary scores. Five goals in the third period, and then ban cougar and Colorado hook up on Friday night, the thrilling, you know, seven six win for Vancouver and overtime. So I like this avalanche team. But what's happened to the D there? Yeah. It hasn't been good. You always topic tobacco back. I thought the game against Calgary Thursday night. They weren't control the game. It was four to one late second and Ankole came across to deliver a big blow to Marchenko skiing lay them out. And when he did that Sam Bennett of right to cow skis the fence. And I thought it was a clean hit by by by coal. But it was one of those hit story that I was you know, I was thinking, you know, you didn't need to make that hit. They're always kind of woke up the bear little bit. You know, it's like you got Calgary. Now, you know teed off Bennett it gets right in their their team gets a motion. Will call as the getting a penalty. He got a five in a game for that. And I don't think he deserves it. But you know, the referees are repping in the ball. But that you know, they're trying to keep the game, you know, on the rails sort of speak, and you don't want the game to kinda get out of hand. So it just seemed like that was a play by coal that at that time and the game wasn't hit that I don't think he needed to make and again, it was a legal hit. And there wasn't really an injury Jankowski as far as I know. But it just got Calgary riled up. And then it got in there and fought coal, and then it just seemed Calgary and then they took advantage. They had power play opportunity because of it they took advantage, and then they got rolling. So so that was the first night and the second night playing in Vancouver saying the second of a back back. It's tough night. You're playing through our your backup who didn't make some of the players they needed to make in Vancouver just doesn't give up. So you know, when you have a lot of wildly talented guys in game. You maybe the best hockey in Colorado. And then you have you know, this group in Vancouver with Pettersen and and. Forbade, and and Besser and these guys, and so, you know, ended up being a wild shootout. I'm sure that you know in Colorado. They they wanna dial it back it'd be better on defense. But you know, they were on TV watch. That's for sure, but they are on defense, and they need to get better goaltending mall. We set up before what entertains the audience does not entertain the coaches. So they're going to go to work. I'm making sure that that stuff doesn't happen again. How about the coyotes they closed out the season? Well last year got off to a real slow start. Just couldn't score any goals. And now it's it's game team. That's two games above five hundred. Yeah, they've you know, I watched their game Friday night against Carolina. They get a three nothing and early in the game. And it would always happens in those games is like, you know, the other team now really starts to push and the team that's leading kind of tends to defend Moore and Carolina like fifty shots of the game onto your onto. It's just absolutely brilliant. And you know, if there was any question, whether this guy can be a started going in the NHL. That that's been answer. The question for him is just staying healthy. But he was brilliant in that game. And the the coyotes ended up needing overtime to win it four three, but you know, right now, and that wasn't really a great effort. Like, I said they had the lead, and then they were really on their heels. But the coyotes have been have been playing some really good hockey right now. And of you know, they're going to be they're gonna be team to watch. I mean they with question is can they score enough goals because right now they've given up the fewest goals lead. They've given twenty four goals. It's not close. I think the next team, you know. So they've been really really brilliant in terms of talks out of their death. Throwing in the year. They weren't good at scoring. They've been scoring more goals lady. And they have seven shorthanded goals. I mean of the thirty five goals seven are shorthanded, and they lead by a wide margin in that area. So you know, it's an interesting team out there. We'll see as we go along here. The second month of the season. It's gonna be really interesting because we have so many teams the parody is just that we've talked about it for years. Donny. But it said another level of seems like this year. It'll be interesting to see can teams like Arizona and the islanders, and you know, Montreal and teams we didn't expect to continue to push forward and continue to be part of this thing. Now, the devils have struggled mightily now is that just the worm turning on this quick start? Or are. They just getting exposed by playing all these games on the road. Well, I think that the devils. They're not deep, you know, as a group, and you know, that is something that's a worry. Right. And you know, they off to the great start. They were getting goals from Palmeiras seemed like he was going every game, and you know hall, it's been a good player. But like, you know, like we talked about, you know, like with LA, I've talked about COPA trial has such unbelievable year last year. And even if he has a really good year this year won't be as good as last year. So how will it impact? The team killer hall was the MVP last year. He had a great year, especially he's ever had. Can you have another year like that? I don't think he can play as good as he played last year. It's still play very well. But if there's a drought. Off. How does that affect the the devils? You know on defense. They went John More go to the Boston Bruins. He's a young veteran skating defensemen. I mean, there's no longer within their group. So they're trying to fill that with some given opportunities some other people, you know, I just think that this is a team that's still kinda thin. That's still kind of working on the rebuild. They cut ahead of the game a little bit last year. And you know, I'll be curious to see what happens going forward to Donnie because they're working cosigner Scheider back in now, of course, not just got I think three or four more years left on a deal. That's a pretty significant deal keeps can caters emerged as a really good goaltender for the double. And is played pretty well. He can be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. What does ratio do with that situation as it unfolds? Can they get Cory Schneider playing up to speed to the point where they either he is becomes their real number one again or they try to move or one of the have what happens with within. Gauge because this cage if you have Schneider, and there were six million can you afford Dow find Kincaid at you know, four or five or six million depending upon how how his numbers continue to unfold. So that's a big story for the devils that we'll have to keep an eye on. Because, you know, of course, not can't return that high inform. That's gonna be a real issue for this franchise moving forward because he's got significant time left on his contract. Right. I remember Shiro wasn't the one that traded the ninth overall pick to get him. So I probably not going to any allegiance, and I'm not sure they would have drafted Bohora bat, but that's who Vancouver took with that ninth overall pick. So we'll see how it goes forward. Balu made that deal not race. So maybe right as a feel the same allegiance as if Louis still here, let's go with weights. Got got a real good. Interesting question from forever, T H E J, he asked what is your mount Rushmore of NHL arenas, all time. And what is your current four? Best arenas, minus MSG. So I guess he thinks that'd be biased obvious TNN. Okay. Which I'm not sure I would. But when you look, I guess the original six what two would you leave out? I guess I guess that's the point. He's talking about all time arenas. I guess. That's where you start. Right. A while. I think I'm probably leave MSG out because there wasn't a lot of winning that one on their right? They'll stick to our right. And they change buildings you know, to a newer MSG. So I mean, the Montreal forum maple leaf garden Boston Garden and Chicago Stadium. I guess you have to choose between the Olympia, maybe. And Chicago stated the Olympia in Detroit or the Boston Garden, so maybe have to have the Olympia and the runway said a lot of winning in there and those forties and fifties. They did how great players. So you know, I was never fortunate enough to get to see the Olympia I got to be in the Chicago Stadium. I got to skate actually in maple leaf gardens and the Montreal forum. So I mean, I think those are the ones you have to consider. I guess it's a matter. You gotta. Have you gotta have the form, and you gotta have maple card. So they have all that's it. And then you got to hear Chicago, Boston and Detroit. And then I throw in a out because the Rangers weren't good in that era. And then they moved and sixty seven. In February is sixty eight they moved into the new building. Right. Not a lot. But in you know, you look winning. So obviously you have to have the forum, but I look at knickknacks like never having been in Chicago Stadium. I could still tell you how the players with their skates at the climate set of stairs in order to be idea. How loud that building was? So there's a unique this their Boston Garden forever. The ice surface of smaller than anywhere else in the league giving. So it changed the way the game is played. The Bruins were able to build a team based on having a smaller ice surface so maple leaf gardens the only arena that I know of EJ where the ice level was on street level. Now, usually either have to go down or the uniqueness of the new garden as you go up to the fifth floor, but maple leaf gardens the ice level. What street level you walked into the building? And there was the ice. I mean, that's the stuff that you kinda think all time that that resonates with me, right? The building has nothing necessarily to do with whether the teams one or not the memory off how great the teams were but the uniqueness of those old buildings. Yeah. But that's what I, but I ended up you ended up for me with. I mean, if you gotta have Montreal. And you gotta have Toronto. Now you end up with cargo Boston, and Detroit, and you gotta take two out of three. You're right Chicago Stadium. I think certainly is something that was there was a uniqueness to that building. I guess you'd have to take the Boston Garden over the over the Olympia. But again, it's hard for me. 'cause I never got to be in the Olympia. And you know, if the asked the question, you asked that question to STAN Fischler, let's say who has been around longer. It might have been in these places he might have a different answer. But you know, I think those are the five and then you've got a whittled down to four between Chicago, Boston and Detroit. I think I'm Romy would probably be Chicago and Boston just because I have more familiarity with both those places I got to see games to both of those places the current buildings to me Jamie because all the they're all gone now. Right. I mean, the building now igloo used to be I used to love that place. Just because of this of of that how about the home and all visiting the visiting locker room at the it goes. I mean, it was like a closet was like, I'm sure there are some like closets and people's homes like in these very wealthy people told that we're bigger than the absolutely law. Locker room at the igloo, which we saw two Stanley Cup finals of oh nine oh, eight zero nine it was incredible. When we're you'd go into those lockers of how small they work for the Detroit Red wing or visiting at the time the but the current buildings I have not been to Detroit yet. I'm gonna do the game there Friday that'll be my first time in the new building post to be patterned after the bell centre, which is my favorite. I I think the belt center for a new building. It's terrific because the steep the steepness of of the seats. So you can be in the last seat in the building and steep still be closer to the ice than I think any other building it's intimate despite the fact that holds twenty one thousand people it's the greatest place to call a game. So I would definitely have to have Montreal as my number one of the current buildings. Yeah. I'm with you on that too. And I think really at the end of the day when you think about these things you think about the experience because the wings are very similar. You know, there really is. No, there's not a lot of difference between some of these buildings. I would just say the experience that you have. Building. I think Montreal because of all the history of to me, and you mentioned the geography of the way they did things is pretty cool. But I I just think that go into a game in Montreal is still something special, you know, other places that I enjoy going. I mean Nashville is something completely don't the building is actually a little different than than than the newer ones. That was kinda it's built a little bit differently. So I I really enjoy the experience in Nashville of Vegas last year was just unbelievable experience off the charts. Winnipeg. I haven't been there yet. But I would imagine because it's not a big building. Everybody's just dialed in on the on the franchise there. It's gotta be a fun place to go to a game. So those are some of the ones that come to mind for me right away. Yeah. Winnipeg is really nice. I've called a couple of games there at holds just a shade over fifteen thousand. So it definitely has that atom it feel to it. And hey, go back to the Nassau Coliseum when the islanders laying there. You're right. Not as all that is an old school building. Like, you know. If the owners continue to play while the second half of the season could be very interesting, but games in the old Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum there in Uniondale, New York. I like the saddledome the uniqueness of the structure outside because it actually looks like a saddle then then you go into the building and its older, and obviously they need to get a new building. Otherwise, they might actually move from there. But the catwalk where you walk over the ice, which some people handle very tricky very for me, go to my Twitter history because you'll find a video that I did me walking across the catwalk. It's it's really dicey. And because it's it's it's a gondola which makes it great. You're right over the ice to call the game. But obviously when they made it back in nineteen eighty I guess the average Canadian was a lot shorter than they are. Now, you have to sit the call the game because you'll hear hit your head. But I don't like sitting. So what I do is. I lean literally out of the booth. So if I call again Calgary, amac my head is outside of the booth to call the game. So. So luckily, I'm not afraid of heights, but there's a building. I like a lot. Yeah. You know, again, though, some of these buildings have been in. But I haven't been in a lot. And so, you know, and I've been in Calgary billion probably for a while the thing about that. But it's funny is I don't know if they still do aboard the plane to score that's flame. Yes. Like shoots out like, and like, you feel like war on your body for like, three seconds. I mean, you feel like it's all of the sudden like a mutton dramatically warm to before they did it, you know, where else they did that in Philips arena when the Thrashers were thing they'd have of Thrasher Spitfire and feel the warmth. But luckily, nobody got caught fire once every five games, right? Yeah. Yeah. Lots. That's why probably was so hot because it just overheated from lack of use. But another shutout. I did get to call a couple of games there. Ryan six eight down in EJ looking forward to two of the early surprises meeting up tonight mantra on the islanders would say great tests for both teams Montreal's kind of slowed down just a little bit got beaten by Tampa Bay the other night, but domains played. Well, this cotton Yemi has been a great player the third overall pick in this past year's draft getting a chance to play. So that should be an exciting game tonight. Yeah. You know, what it's it's a big game for both. But it's really a big game for the islanders because you know, are home again they've won five in a row, you know, they just beat the devil's. That's why early game they went back to Pittsburgh. So now they got Montreal coming in. And mean, can they sustain what they're doing there and find another way to get a win. I mean, so, you know, Montreal needs to win this too because you know, in that division the big three Tampa Toronto Boston or playing pretty well. So if Montreal has any dream of getting into the Stanley Cup playoffs this year. These reports that are that are really critical for them because they're going to have the most likely do it as a wildcard with those three big dogs that have a very interesting night for sure the I wouldn't have expected when somebody would have said how about that November fifth game. Montreal the islanders in Barclays, you would been wild. And they're not going to be anything not important. And in fact, it is a pretty big game doesn't factor in tonight. But the islanders undefeated in the metropolitan division six at all including innings over Pittsburgh. So that's been pretty good David says after a sluggish one two and to start the wilder looking great with wins in six of their last seven. I predict them to make the playoffs. But what's the key position? You'd think they will need to add later on. So they don't get bounced in the first round for the fourth straight year. Well, it'd be nice if they could add young young fast settlement to their group. They're lock right to. Yeah. That's yeah. Exactly. I always say on the old show. You know, you just don't walk into the store and buy those guys off the rack. Oh, look, there's it. Nice. Into our lineup. But you know, they played very well. So far this year and a big part of it to me has been the rejuvinated plans. That greasy. I mean, he's healthy. And he is playing really well Devon do. Nick is is just rock solid for them and goal as he's been for the last couple of years. He always gives them a chance to win every night. I mean, I think he's one of those guys is probably a little bit under appreciated in this league for what he does. But you know, when people start of the year, I was not you know, when we look at the Western Conference. I said I'm not ruling Minnesota out because they seem to get one hundred points every year and do big things the play. Well, and now they get to the playoffs. They play teams that are just quite frankly, better than them, and they lose, and you know, that's just because the other team is just better. But you know, this year, Michael, grandma, that's playing very well the of the year, but Zachary's he has played terrific. Jason suckers got great speed. And can score goals of the young veterans on that team have to be the guys to take their game up another notch. I mean, like the guys like, Charlie Coyle. And met dumb, bud Vido need a rider, and you know, Jordan Reno as a rookie this year Jonas Brodin on defense. I mean, those are the kind of guys that if they can take their game up step all the sudden, I didn't Minnesota's harder to play against then have more of a chance in the postseason. But you know, when you think about it. You know, we talk about in baseball teams that are built for the regular season teams that are built for the postseason. I think the Minnesota wild is definitely team that's built for the regular season. Because they've got veteran guys what stand the grind. And they have a goalie. That's probably comes just consistently good night after night. He's probably a top five guys. So, you know, I think the Minnesota the keeper them will be those young veterans if they can take their game to another level. Maybe they have more of a chance in the postseason Calvin ask. Do you think the Pete damore will follow L as coach out the door since he continues with the line blender. He seems to enjoy using that doesn't work. Well, I mean Peter has taken two franchises to the Cup. Final. Was either the devils and the and the sharks? So he's had some success there. I think wolf is committed to people I think Pete show and he can do a good job this league. I think he's trying to figure out what he's got here. Because you know, they're trying to work call it into the group. I mean so far for call since it's been a mixed bag. He's playing wasn't twenty five minutes. But he's a by player. That's the worst number on their team. He's gotta be better. And he's gotta figure it out. And they gotta no long term. But they even gonna keep cross. I mean, we could get dry line. And maybe they feel like you know, what we can't sign them long-term. We'll just gonna move along. So you know, there's a lot going on behind the scenes there. I don't think you know, Marty Jones has been okay so far. But there have been games I've seen what he's given up the bad goal. They lost the Rangers last week. I got the first goal. The game wasn't a great goalie gave up. So, you know, I think that I don't foresee Pete going anywhere. Let's they really fall off the map, and they haven't there's there's seven four and three, you know, this is they've they're right in the mix. And I I get. The sense that they will find their way and get on a little bit of Iran, maybe this month or maybe somewhere the next forty games. But I think San Jose has got a lot south and guys on that rostrum. I think they'll figure it out. Now, I've got one from Tony because I kind of went off a little bit last week. I wanted to get your thoughts on this because I just felt compelled to defend Gary Bettman, I had gotten a tweet about you know, how bad he's been. And how the league's going nowhere with a tell terrible television contract. And all that. And I just basically made the statement we've talked about for years EJ when you look at the National Hockey League compared to the other three sports. It's not an American sport. It's not dominated by Americans. It's not a sport that a lot of Americans play. I would venture to say that fifty if not more percent of the people that are in a given NHL building never played the sport. But yet they love it. And it's not a great television sport. And yet, I think exceeds all the obstacles that just are inherently in the spoke. Court and I give Gary a lot of credit. We talked about it when we were talking with John Ziegler's passing that Gary has put this sport, not a different level. And I do think he deserves his day next week to go to Toronto. And Tony says Don you were spot on with your defensive Batman and current state of league, especially when it comes to TV deal, no offense to your current employer. But I hope NBC NBC sports net keeps NHL after twenty twenty one. They treat it as a crown jewel. Not your ESPN can do that. And that's another example of their. They were better off making the move to Olenin now at the time. It was oh well n versus and it just seemed like a joke that life thought was a huge turning point for this league. As I listen, I work at ESPN. I love ESPN used to work there as well. ESPN never could do for hockey what? And with NBC is done. Yes. PM could not put all of the playoff games on. They would not have doubleheaders on Wednesdays and putting two Canadian teams on television. I mean, so as much as I'd like them to get back to SPN and broaden the spectrum just a little bit. It. The the move to NBC turned out to be the best thing this league ever did. Well, I'll say a couple of things about that the at the time going to oh. L N or was it outdoor life. All L N. Right. Yeah. They went there that was not going NBC. I mean, they were on NBC. But it was a deal where they basically got no revenue they split whatever they made. Right. And that was so the games mostly on. Oh, well N. And at that time, he'll Lee was coming out of work stoppage. The product was damaged, right. They missed the whole season. So they were kind of in a slow in a situation where it was like, you know, take what we can get. I think that you know, the landscape is so dramatically different now than it was, you know, three years ago compared to like fifteen years ago NBC has done. I think a pretty good job with this. You know, folks, having a lot of games on all these playoff games on. But I think it's always these you know, when like if he were to get hockey back. I think they would do their best to promote it as best. They can the problem. There is going to be that. They basically have the. NBA on around the clock. I mean, that's right. That's a little bit crazy to me. I know they have the NFL the NFL is the big dog, but the NBA is seemingly taken up a huge chunk of their programming throughout the day on their different platforms. So we'll see what happens down the road. But I think it's worked out in the end it worked out better one NBC sports network came they they basically a to became versus and then old, you know, NBC sports, you know, became you know, took over from there. And I think that's when it really benefited the league. And I go back to the word I've used with you for fifteen years now donning the league, the sport is on an uptick, it's not, you know, things don't change overnight doing a lot of different places. They haven't been before a lot of different people are now playing hockey we got a kid from Arizona. That's playing in Toronto. That's one of the best players in this league that grew up playing down there and. I just think continuing I think the world is, you know, young people like the faster moving things now when I think hockey's gonna benefit and the TV the ability to watch it on TV as much better now with HD with super slow MO and there's a lot of things that have benefited hockey. And now, we have you know, gambling is a factor in the NHL just did a deal with with fan Bill, which is, you know, you know, fantasy sports, but also, you know, in the state of New Jersey, and maybe in other places you can wager on your phone. So, you know, this is going to be another avenue to get people interested in the sport. So I think it will continue to grow, and I'll be curious to see what they do with television. Next time. I would have the the NHL on ESPN on NBC. You just like we have with the other sports where they're agreeing networks, I think really for the game. And you know, if that can be something that can be accomplished in both Canada and the United States that'd be thrilled. Yeah. All the other sports have multiple platforms. Why not the NHL? So next week. You're going to be in Toronto. So can we do Monday? Or did you would you rather try? I think no I think we can. I don't think there's a reason why we won't. We'll check in with me. And we'll go from there. We don't really show doing anything until later in the day on Monday. All right EJ. Thank you so much kept you for a long time. But I love talking to you. Oh, hey, always talking to you. Donnie, it's you know. Nice. It's nice Donny. The hall. All right. But I'll talk to you next week. All right. See him. But. All right. That's the great EJ Radic from NHL now Monday through Friday on the NHL network from four to six PM eastern time five games tonight. We touched on the devils struggling a bit five five and one after the four noes start. They'll be in Pittsburgh to take on the penguins at six three and three doubles again struggling on the road, technically. They're went on opening day. In Sweden was a road victory for the devils over Edmonton. But really statement back here in the states have not been able to win on the road coming up with three nothing loss to the Allender. Pittsburgh just got beaten by the islanders as well. And also got shut up Toronto. So both teams coming in after losses should be a good one at seven as we talked about with the tweets Canada of the Canadians and the islanders from Brooklyn seven four and to the Canadians coming off a four one loss to Tampa. I'll just coming off that three nothing victory over the devil. So that should be a lot of fun stars. And Bruins from Boston. Both teams three games above five hundred their oil in the capital's. Ovechkin verses mcdavid always a good time. It's Washington now back home after that western swing five four and three. Off to a sluggish start and Edmonton's been hot eight four and one on the season after the three three and one start at nine o'clock tonight. The flyers continue their road trip in Arizona to take on the red hot coyotes. Philadelphia's taken a liking to the west coast, although they did lose that game to the sharks blowing the the the lead late in the third period. Eventually losing in overtime. But they still did earn a point can get back to NHL five hundred tonight with a victory in the coyotes. Two games above five hundred we back again tomorrow, you can tweet at me if we didn't get to your tweets today will definitely do it. Tomorrow at Don McGregor hashtag game is conduct.

It's a one stop shop. For event organizers who want to create a unique and engaging virtual event experience in the current environment many companies are choosing to transition their live events virtual format and janis the expert when it comes to helping companies make their process as seamless as possible. Welcome to the show. Jonathan having me on now you mentioned it. John unless you're getting in trouble shawmut stick with john right right. You're going to be getting married soon. So you're going to hear enough jonathan's right at some point down the road but so we'll stick with john today. Thank you for being here. Appreciate it congrats on your success. You sound like you've got a great business going. Tell us a little bit about what led you in that direction. I mean how did you. How did you come to start a sullivan's so actually started back. In twenty four king. I had a pleasant aged seventeen year. Got diagnosed with cancer and wanted to do something for her. So ultimately decided that Raise more money hosting our fundraiser running on so ended up doing that. When donahue burying boston garden was twenty four times at sell hundred eighty five gets the credit card bill. We ended up selling forty two that i event going injury realized that we needed technology in order to run raffle and auction could find anything aboard while they're so ranan decided to build out on her own and frankly just working doug feedback so that kind of keep it all. I was working another job the time during this nights and weekends and as the As business started to grow we started focused more heavily on tiffany space so building ticketing functionality and given processing and then starting to work with more or profit organizations and bursting conferences concerts festivals trade shows or whatnot. And everything's looking looking good when we are starting to pick up. Steam had a for salesperson. Join in non twenty nineteen and then twenty game. We'll take you. Were going to pretty much. Triple all revenue in the beginning of the year and and Who in the world die march. So at that point. Our options were buckle down reasons technology that we had previously been selling. Where did it so in march. We decided to pivot in i. May we had hosted our first for successful virtual event on the platform. Things very much took off from men are headcount quadrupled in a matter of a five months in in this is. This is all organic self-funded Big on the institutional capital and these are just continuing to progress. And it's been a very interesting space. Yeah so you're one of the many businesses that was forced to pivot due to you know this global pandemic and fortunately you're pivot appears to be working really well and his very well suited for you know really. It's like tailor made for this type of catastrophe so that you could and i think you're helping obviously helping a ton of business and just to give give everybody a sense today. What we're gonna talk about what we're talking about and we're going to hone in on is how to leverage virtual events to grow your small business because one of the phenomenons that john and i were talking about prior to this is that most small businesses historically don't use events they don't use them very well because they don't use them at all because typically pretty expensive right and there's a lot of barriers to entry in throwing a big event so what jonathan and his team have been able to do what his software does and what he's been helping his clients with a lot of them are small businesses in their seeing enormous amounts of success. Oh johnson a share framework with us about that on how you could start leveraging it yourself. Obviously he's built some technology and you guys are more than welcome to check that out will provide some links here. I'm assuming jonathan. It's it's accelerates dot com is that is at the euro one spell it for everybody just really quick just because it's a little bit tricky on the spelling. Acc yell events dot com got it. Check that out. We'll make sure we put that the show notes but that's a that's an entire platform that's designed to create more of an immersive event than just you know what most people thinking event is. So i'm gonna let you take it away. You're here today to unpack this. So walk us through this process of how they can start leveraging virtual events to grow their business. Yeah absolutely day. Advantages such an amazing mechanism for building a business because they allow your customers to come together and go to sentence community. You get any the reason. I ios companies like success. They've had hundred time revenue while they've had is so driven by that That they have as an organization and when it comes to community it required breathing together and small businesses. They just haven't had the opportunity to do that. Because hosting that means booking of venue nine months in advance of premium ashdown for that in brooklyn all your vendors and speakers and everything else and and that just prohibitive but all of a sudden through this virtual event technology which is i'm years ahead of where it otherwise would have been or now eagle to provide small businesses an opportunity to host these events in that sense of community while also adding additional revenue streams in deepening relationships with their partners and other centers influence. So how do your events differ from you know what most people think of events. You know like a webinar. Maybe some sort of an online summit. I mean talk just a little bit about that. Because i think there. I think there is a difference. I think you guys are doing is different. I think that's why you're seeing such great results. Can you expand on that. A little bit yet is so a webinar. Is you know. It's also not something you have to be there right for. Yeah you might question that you drop in chai might bad but an event is bringing people together at the same time the way where they interact with each other learn from each other network with each other in bill back back and what our platform does is just not. It gives them an opportunity the mechanism to come together so that they can do that. And that could these ring obviously participating educational content. That's often arctic these events and conferences. But it's also providing them opportunities to participate in bursa lounges or other forms of professional speed dating style. Networking allows them to come together each other. It's funny because when you ask people what. The biggest benefit of going to live events are right whether that be some sort of a conference or whether that be some sort of whatever. It is some sort of a live event rate. The thing that they'll tell you is yes. They got benefit from maybe some of the speakers or some of the content but most of the benefit or a lot of the benefit comes from the people that they meet and that they network with and develop relationships with. So i think that's where like you said webinars and and these online summits. They're great but they're just not replicating what a or trying to even replicate what a live event can do so so see. I see the difference. So why don't you help us break this down on how you know. A small business can can start moving towards this virtual event to actually see some growth in their business. Yeah so off. the bat needs it again. It just such an audible opportunity for any small business that gauge their audience. And in doing so. It's a matter of of position. Your your business or organization has about leader. It's bringing in thought leaders in the space as well provide valuable content in really help your customers in your perspective bus mercy and that's what it has to be happy about adding and it's also about providing a platform that opportunity where those people can come together. You build their own their own personal brains in their own networks so in terms of just getting started with it. It's you know it's it's as simple as that in in doing so. It also provides that opportunity to to start to reach out to your partners and in deepen the relationships with the partners. Maybe maybe reseller. Or maybe they're an agency that that worked with you and young. If you're say a real estate agent maybe it's real estate attorneys or maybe it's accountants or something like that anybody who could have hand off the business process. Okay so part of it is in what you're just referring to. Here is enhancing relationships with people that are already a part of your ecosystem whether they be a potential customer whether they be vendor whether they be an influence her or someone would some sort of influence in the space allows you to develop relationships with them. Is that what you're saying it is but it's also about her body your customers and your prospects an opportunity to somebody else who can provide the nausea gotcha. Okay so everybody's to win win win gotcha in needs to be win win in an ecb not just about what do yourself i you as organization putting that bent on your inherent going to be the one. Who's who's the brains behind the one that your customers are thinking of. It's the one that provided them the opportunity. And maybe you know today. They don't end up working with you for whatever your industry made but as they fine their next year how he financial advisor rude event you put on. They're not gonna forget about that every time they work with that. I know they're going to be reminding them. Got it. okay. So what else do you do within the events or how else can the event help them grow. So obviously i think that point. Is you hit that home right. I mean that's definitely a no brainer. And i think that's the foundation of the whole kit and caboodle right. I mean that's the foundation tenant of the whole thing that's the that's the ground floor. What other things can you do. With virtual events that can enhance the opportunity to get more customers. Grow your sales. Yeah so then as aspect of community so community could be. It could mean a lot of different things depending on what industry you're in but if you're in the in the tech world and you're hosting event and you've got your customers coming together you're facilitating conversation amongst your customers. And there's no better way to hear from them. Wear your product is excelling or where your product may be falling shore and then being able to drive that conversation around digging into those points learning from this you can get better as an organization as well and at the same time your customers are going to have an opportunity to share amongst themselves. Different ideas different ways. They've implemented your product to benefit themselves. Else yeah so. I mean customer to customer. That's one thing but imagine if you have a prospect who's looking to potentially by your whatever it is your service or your software. Whatever the case may be and they're able to come in in an event style whether it's virtual or otherwise and actually talked to a customer right. I mean we always talk about social proof right. We talk about video testimonials and all these reviews. And all these things that people do but isn't the best testimonial you can get as actually having a conversation with a customer right and that usually doesn't happen in the world it doesn't even happen in the real world right out. Virtual is one of the only ways you can do that. It is in in any circumstance pre virtual where you might have had that opportunity is either. You're reading something that's being created and posted online or media handed over to one or two of the best customers. We know you know they're gonna say something good anyway. Here is a more authentic opportunity really drill in into find somebody. Who's you know more more ardent for questions than you have. Because they're all coming up. Yeah so i love that community aspect and there's different levels of it right there's customers there's vendors there's prospects there's people that are in different stages of the funnel right in the buying process. Maybe their top of funnel you know. And there's and i'm sure that throughout the process from an event perspective you know you can probably serve them different types of content based upon where they are in the funnel too so that's really interesting that's a whole nother. That's a whole nother thought process okay so communities and important part of it right so beyond community where else to go. Yes actually when. I want to come back to be the concept of those partner relationships in the center of influences in dig into that a little bit so on one hand you know we talked about how you should be working with those other partners because you can provide value directly to your attendees who could be prospects or they could be existing customers but the other part of it is that by providing additional value to your partners. Your partners are then going to become a bigger referral source for you. And they're gonna wanna do the same thing in find other ways to provide you value to provide you leads a on. That's through just the mechanism of giving them this opportunity. But it's also through the mechanism of they're really good at teaching your customers or prospects about whatever that topic is yeah that makes sense so i mean you allow them you. You propped them up and position them in a way. That's you know it's almost hard to buy that type of positioning rate. Amir positioning them in front of perspective. Customer as an expert as thought leader as an influence in that space and even though because in most cases these vendors are going to be complementary. They're not going to be competitive to you. Obviously shall yeah. That makes sense for that also. Because you're doing that in his organic goodwill they're going to go out and you're gonna you on their social media platforms their email or other mechanisms of of schering's bath at your hosting with their audience. You just extending the reach of your brand and adding validity. What it is that. You're doing yes so in way. You're tapping into their influence at the same time. They're kind tapping into yours right because you're bringing that audience so perfect okay spending taking the community aspect of it yawn. Just what's occurring in the event but breeds more other forms. Well okay great. So what else happens. Inside of these events. I mean what described to us a little bit more about what. These events are like from an experiential perspective. May what what could somebody expect. Because i think that might really draw the picture for the audience to differentiate. How what they've seen in the past isn't necessarily they're not necessarily limited to that if they're thinking about putting together an event for their business point so so use a couple of examples. I'll start with one. Which is a. It's a small business. They have a mobile app which is For for meditation and they actually found that through hosting a paid that in bringing people together on. I think it was a weekend morning or a couple of hours. They were actually able to generate a significant amount of revenue. And they brought in the same way that you know. We talked about that partner Ecosystem they brought in influencers in the health and wellness. Space to leave those lectures and that was content. That people are willing to pay for and in doing so. It also promoted their products so with that allowed four wise people. With those speakers those presenters but also for these like minded people to come together and discuss different products whether that be health and wellness products different foods different diets. Anything along those lines and then also get to know each other and gets into each other. In a sort of virtual stance of not monitoring where in the world you are but also being able to tap into local communities and maybe have one region for miami one for boss and one for new york and and everything else another example would be one which was much more of a trade show in nature and this one. This is a recent event. It just occurred. They were a national autoparts brand and they held it hosted a dealer network or dealer event on the platform and everybody who is in were the franchisees and the exhibitors or different tool manufacturers. So they were able to come in browse all the new products that are being released in place. Orders right there in drove very significant dollar volumes of revenue over the course of just a couple of days. Now i love that. Because did they would the products. I'm sure that some of those were new releases. Some of those were updates and some of those maybe were special deals or offers based on pricing and whatever the case may be so it created a lot of awareness and then that awareness directly translated into revenue which is huge right. Obviously that's that's a big part of the so okay so when they're engaging i have a question it's gonna. I'm gonna get down in the weeds a little bit when they're engaging with the let's say an influence or someone on the platform is it audio. Is it chat. is it video any. What's the format for engagement when they're communicating with somebody else in the platform it's all about is whatever. They're comfortable with and whatever's the best mechanism so from the perspective of a young an exhibitor product. Demo it probably want be on video showing how this new camera grill is better than the last one. Whatever it might be there. if i'm attending i want to interact with another attendee. I can book a meeting with them. Similar to how you might use a kalemba linked to book a meeting. And i can facilitate that conversation either over audio chat or video right within the platform. So it's it's not an avatar based concept it's about keeping a human easy to navigate accepting the fact that look it's not gonna look like a dozen person. Yeah it's about maybe easy to navigate in getting people interaction in connections that are so valuable to events. Yeah perfect okay. Anything else you want to add specifically about how small businesses can start leveraging events to grow their businesses or anything else that we missed or anything else you wanna touch on or you think is important last couple of rapid fire questions at the end and then we'll wrap it up yet. The other thing that that's incredibly gordon years the the access to data that you get so. When did you start bringing these customers in prostate platform. And start to see how they interact. You really get a better sense of ritter. Interests are and where they're spending you know it's one thing to look at click tracking website and see that somebody spent nineteen seconds on a pg rattus site. But that doesn't very different story when they spent where he by minutes breakout session. Talking about this new feature. You just release and ask questions on the topic you know you can get on the phone with this person. Try to sell them this product. So there's a whole nother level you trash data. I just you know it's it's never been available until the hostile months need so our. So is the data available on a user level or as an aggregate go. Wow so you could track an entire user through his experience and see how much time he spent in every component of the event absolutely and the question they're asking increase your crm in yourself out and go back all everybody who has ended that were everybody who who performs activities of your out where the opportunities are. You wanna talk about segmenting holy cow. That's ideal that's a game changer. That's a big one right there. I mean that's huge. I think that's a huge huge component. I'm glad you hit that. Because i hadn't even thought about that. You know particular component and. I think that's a no brainer right. If you have your building a community of customers and prospects you're building community of influencers and every step of the way throughout that journey you're gathering data that you can then leverage to serve them later. That's pretty cool. I love it all right awesome. Well listen couple rapid fire questions and then we'll wrap it up today besides a cell event right besides your software your system.

Thursday Afternoon Monday Morning Podcast 10-4-18

"Hey, what's going on is Bill. It's time for the Thursday afternoon just before Friday, Monday morning podcast. And. Just checking in on you. How are you. How was your week going? What are you paying attention to when the news that's causing you to yell at people? You don't know online. What's going on. Did you hear about this. Somebody did this, and then someone said that and the results may surprise you all fucking day. You know, I walk through the God damn airport, and I'm just looking at all these fucking people looking on their phones and you know what? I see. I see me. That's what I am like. I'm doing that. I'm just sitting there staring at my fucking phone. Looking at somebody flipping a fucking water bottle, somebody fucking dunk, a basketball and everybody running away like the world, just ended somebody fucking playing drums, what am I doing. You know. I sit there and read a book, you know. So I looked smart, but no one would even notice they're all fucking staring at their phones. So what is the point of reading in public if other people can't even see you're doing it because that's why you're doing it right. Nobody reads in public. You know, kinda fucked. You see some fucking asshole, walking down the street with a book. You know, you cross the street like smart. Maybe do reading public man. That's what you're supposed to do. You read in public so you get credit for its everybody that time back on the Seinfeld episode, Jason Alexander wanted to get credit for tipping didn't seem. So he reached back into do it, then they thought he was stealing. I think it's like the literary version of that or maybe it isn't or maybe it is. Anyways, I have something to promote here. All things, comedy network. I need you guys to get behind this feel like no pressure here. All right. Ted Alexandra has a new special out that you can. You can actually stream it right now. At ATC specials dot com. It's cold. Senior class of earth in Ted is just one of those guys men. I think he's just one of those comics at every comic loves, and but you know. This business is for a while. They like this person, then they want this person and he just was never that person which I can relate to this industry was never looking for a bald red headed male. You know. So I called my own path like how making his special about me and my struggles. You know why that is because I'm on social media all the time and it's fucking frying my brain. Do you guys go on and check out his special? It would be be great. You'd see a actually this fucking killer clip of one of his jokes where he compares affect that. He's in his late forties. And his girlfriend's in her early thirties in was saying that. He was comparing his sex drive versus hers, which is in the prime to win shack plate on the Celtics where it was still shack, but it didn't look like shack anymore. Took him like half the game to warm up all of that stuff. It's such a fucking killer joke. And when you watch it, what I love about Ted is there's no wasted words, and even like even like the physicality of his jokes, propels you towards the punchline, he's he's an absolute master. So please check that out and with that. And with that that anybody watch the Monday night football game that that that at and put it, put it on the Kansas City Chiefs against the fuck in Denver Broncos. And. Jesus Christ. I thought that announcer was gonna fucking fate. I have never heard announced his. So God damn excited about a regular season game, but that Mahomes he's like, shove type homes captured comeback. Gained something else. Maho everything that he did like when he was rolling. I'm not saying the guy's in good. He's not going to be a fucking star. One of the guys said, you know, he came into the game as a legend. He's play for a month right? Everybody flipping the fuck out what it's goddamn business, right? You know, Brady's, fuck and older than dirt. This other fucking guy is like, you know, drew Brees is like a year or two younger than Brady. Peyton Manning fucking top. So all they can't even get through these fucking names without Peyton Manning fucking retired. They need new people. Right? How many yards of these new people going to throw for when you can't even like start the hug them and then stop and do the. You know the me too. Now we go to hug a and you start thing. Oh, you get all fucking nervous. That's the way defensive linemen grab quarterbacks now and they still get a flak. So anyways, the guy fucking rolls out. He's a right handed quarterback. He rolls out to his left. This guy is breathing down his neck. He dives at his ankles and right before. Mahomes goes down. He switched the ball to his left hand in through it like four yards in this guy caught it, which Brett farve do that. If seen, Eli, people do that before in this guy's I, I hope you realize what you just saw here. I think the NFL game, listen, man, you gotta hype this kid up, okay, you have to hype this fucking kid up. And as always, you know, I'm the fucking Grinch sports. Don't ever listen to me. I'm always telling everybody to fuck relax and not be excited. I'm always taking all the fun out of it, but Kansas City. As of right now has the worst defense in all the football and everybody's freaking the fuck out. I mean, they should be frigging 'cause moms is looking like the real deal, but it's just like, you're not, you don't. If fix that problem, you're not gonna do shit in January. So I don't know what all the screaming and yelling of is about. I hope you guys realize what what, what I just said here on this podcast. People that was like one of the greatest Monday night football games was it seemed like what happens every time I sit down to watch a game somebody's up by ten and then goes into a fuck, and I don't know what, and then they lose the game when I was a kid like. That's happen to happens all the fucking time. One of the greatest. I'll time it reminded me of three regular season games. I saw the day before, you know if that was what about the fucking Bengals falcons like that wasn't? I guess because it didn't happen on Monday. I don't know why am I such a jerk. I have no idea. Anyway. Well, you know, who knows? I'm going to be taking a, it's Wednesday right now, and I am taking a redeye flight out to Springfield, Massachusetts, to do shows in Springfield in. Boston and then downing in Connecticut, and Paul versus going to be on me with on all the shows. And then I'm also working with some Boston guys that I started out with. I'm working with Frank Sana rally in Springfield, Tony at Boston Garden, and Dan Smith down in Connecticut. So it's gonna be. It's gonna be a lot of fun and I wanna thank everybody that's bought the tickets and freckles is going to try to go out there and not put on forty pounds because of. You know, I'm gonna go back there. It's going to be all the old haunts. You know, you'll back east got the fucking insane, Chinese food. The pizza all of that stuff. So I get like ice cream joints that I used to all the shit that this is what happens whenever I go back to Boston as I because I left the ninety five. I go back to. Twenty two years old way. I'm eating. Which somehow back in the day you'd go out and drink a twelve pack and then hit mcdonnell's at the end of the night and go home and the next morning, just wake up and go on load trucks. Stomach was flat, you know, just shook it off back then. You know, it's like doing your, I burn out in a brand new car, the car, you know, probably wished you didn't do it. Probably not happy did it, but it can shake it off. It still looks new. Now I try to do that. Shit is fucking parts left in the road. Anyways. So it's so. And I wasn't going to do it, but now I'm going to do it. Will for could do it. You know, I'm a binge drinker. I gotta stop with the ship. You know, I'll do it. So now on the wagon a lump day, but deep but the but to, you know, it's funny. There's like two different ways of saying you're on the wagon this like. You know, like you're on the party wagon or you're, you're your when I'm the way I say I'm on the wagon that always meant like not on. You're not party. He fell off the wagon meant you started partying again, but then other people call the wagon, the party wagon. So I don't know. It's just one of those things. You know, it's kinda like that word cock with white people at meant dick and with with black older black people. I should say pussy. You know. Complete inverse sort of an extreme example, but. I remember saying that the writer's room. In efforts for family and like, that's not true. Is it? And then they end up having this fucking snoop Dogg song from the early nineties where your first women's pussy as as cock. Fucking weird. Oh, people, people have different ways of saying things don't they? That was sort of my Mr. Rogers moment of the podcast. I know there's a bunch of people right now. Fucking Google in that. Go ahead and go go it. Go ahead and go, you know, I'll fucking go. I'll rea- really right now this could be some. Maybe this could be something interesting. By the way, if you guys been following anybody like told you if you follow been following anybody sarcastically on Twitter, watching them make all of these news events about themselves telling you how difficult it is to be beautiful. You know, let me see here. Cock Jesus Christ fucking this is gonna be on my search engine. Kakha doodle cockroach Cox Speyrer cockroaches cockapoo cock- meaning. Pussy. Thank you. I'm fifty years old. I just searched that. All right. Let's see what happens will the FBI show up at my door and we're waiting and we're waiting because Bill has the worst internet service. And there we go. Kok means vagina. Lettuce, explain LA weekly wrote an article about this. The. Okay, l. this is one caught meeting vagina. Let us explain now I don't want is fucking subscribe to the weekly k. Rodney car. Michael's early high school years were awkward like many young men. He wasn't sure how to talk to girls this less of a problem for a stepbrother who gives a shit. Okay, Laurie. He'd never met a girl person, but recalls that his stepbrother promise. She was cute even better. She'd seen comical from afar and thought the same thing about him. So their phone calls slowly Miranda meandered from getting to know you phase two clumsy highschool attempts at flirtation. Then she asked a question that stopped him in his tracks. Do you eat cock? Wait, that's not a fucking clumsy. Flirtation. That's fucking direct. Fuck military. Do you e cop for private? All right. Carmichael was confused. Two young black man. Everything to that point had suggested a typical teenage, heterosexual courtship. But the question through them for a loop. He's like, I don't know if she was talking about Mina hers. He remembers. It was kind of nerve wracking is confusion was understandable. He didn't use the word cock much himself, but he had heard it by white folks in the media HBO old playboy who was slang for penis when it was used by some of his famous rap favorite rappers. However, it meant something else entirely take Miami rap act. Two live crew, the group obsessed equally with base and female anatomy. And most famously most famous hit me so horny also had a song called HP see in which they chanted head booty and cock. What you like fellas head booty and cock. Jesus Christ. I don't remember that song. Two live crew Jesus Christ. What? Okay, snoop Dogg when I bust my not I'm raising up off the cock. Snoop Dogg wraps his iconic nineteen Ninety-three hit gin and juice. All right. So we got enough exam examples. So surprise at fledging courtship quickly wound down. Nobody's cock was ever eaten become, I definitely wasn't loan confusion. They were surely many casualties in in when hip hop sudden popularity forced this old bit of slang into a head on collision with the broader culture for one group of people carpet for two male genitalia for the other verts female day. I we go and that's one to grow on everybody. You know, every once in a while you learn something here. On the fuck it Thursday afternoon puchased. What do you think about that? All right. So you gotta be asking yourself the New England Patriots are playing the fuck in Indianapolis, Colts rivalry. Arguably the biggest rivalry in the NFL. During the Peyton Manning was there maybe. You know, I always thought the Steelers ravens was a good one. Who the fuck knows. Anyways, it was it was a big rival, but now it's a different time and do took a year off getting healthy now he's back who knows what happens. I love what the patriots did on Sunday. Oh, by the way that I fucking call the fucking Broncos a what they covered, they still blew the fucking game, but they, I was so hoping actually gonna win the game. But anyways. The patriots did so well against the dolphin sets the team that I want to show up on Thursday, but these Thursday games a weird because everybody's fucking tired. They usually sloppy shit and. I don't know. I, I keep hearing elements going to be back, and then other people say, isn't going to be back. I don't know. But if he's back, you know, we got that dude, you know who likes to party like me in from Cleveland. It defense can get a little pressure on the quarterback something. I don't know. We gotta shot. We gotta shot to go on a little run here. We'll say we shall see what happens. So I went to the gym today, right. And. I forgot my headphones. And. So the plane, you know, Jim using and shit, right. And at my fucking Jim, it is so funny. It's such like a like. I've I've haven't been in a gym, eleven or twelve years always worked out my garage, but now because I need to do the latte, pull downs to finally build strength in my shoulder. So I can finally do a pull up again. So I don't lose two hundred bucks when I turned seventy because I can't ten pull ups. That's the bet with version that I have. And so I joined this gym and I haven't been gym so long. There is just so many different fucking workouts. Because you know back in the day they used to be, I'd go to a gym and I'd be like that guy doesn't know what the fuck he's doing. You know, then that person really knows what they're doing. I should ask them for some tips on how to work out. But now I haven't been in this so long. This just so many. I mean when last time I was a member of gym, like I don't think there was even kettles forget about all of this other shit where people stand on things like trying to. They got half a beach ball. They're standing on while they're doing curls, and they're also working their core. I mean, I don't know. So then I see people doing other shit and it's just like, okay, so is that a legit exercise or is that person just fucking weird? I saw a guy on on. Instead of doing Dipsy lifted himself up. He locked his arms out. And then he was just like scissor kicking side to side. He was running in the air. And I was like, is that for your ankles? Like what is what? Is that? Imagine that something for your core? He wasn't bringing his legs up though. It was like it was just sort of running in the air like those douchebag who do pull ups and they act like they're walking upstairs. You know, like one person did. It was cooled and then forty thousand people did it. And that just immediately became Dushi like rollerblading. What did I hear this guy say today at the Joe, it was self op is going to and write it down. I forgot. He was just talking about a show that he liked, and I was just going, there's no way that was fa- family. He said, I just thought that they were really delicate with the some sort something sort of subject. So a guy talk. I like that show because they're really, they cherish something, blah, blah, blah, blah. I don't know if he was hitting on the woman was talking to or whatever trying to use fucking sensitive. But I know they weren't talking about f- family and speaking of efforts family. Netflix put out their first bit of social media about season three, which I'm very excited about it. It dropped. I think eleven AM or something. I guess it's the next day. She gets probably saw it if you haven't seen it. Vince Vaughn is doing a voice this season and. It's probably the most fun I've had in the recording booth with somebody. He that guy is like he is completely in his own land is a fucking monster. How funny that guy is and. I did my best to try to keep up with them, which I don't think I did. But once again, just another huge person to add to the cast and obviously added the funding. That's why I think this is our best season and and it's obviously his production. Company wild west Philo fucking reason that the show exists to begin with. So I wanna thank him and I want to thank you guys. If you even thinking of watching it, hopefully you will watch it and then we will get to do it all over again and hopefully this time next year I'll be talking about a season four, but let's not get ahead of ourselves the Yankees. I don't know what happened. It's it's the fucking day before. I don't know. It's today. It's happening today. Maybe there are they playing right now? They're playing the Oakland a.'s and I have no feeling about this game. I have no idea who's going to win this fucking one, but. Like the fucking check in here. What are we got Yankee the Yankees are they're gonna play tonight. What time it's on TBS. All right. I'll have to check this out now. You know what? You're going to the fucking airport, so I'm gonna miss it. They'll watch it on the plane should be some Yankee fans on their flying to whatever the fuck compliant too. I got some average to read here, but I don't have them with me. So I'm just going to say, have them, and then I'm going to, I guess we'll drop it in through the magic of fuck in. I don't know what magic of editing. Yes, I'm definitely going to do the the sober October thing. I gotta do it man. I don't know what my deal is. What is it when if you drink you just fucking take it to the end. But you can also just stop where where does that exist on like addiction? You know what I mean? Like I literally just stop drinking and I'll have. I'll gall sitting. I just walked by it everyday. I don't even fuck and see it. But then when I get back on, then I just fuck in. I don't know just slamming. Then I'm thinking it'd be my last one. This will be my last one and I'm just like, obstat. I'm still not. Maybe it's my tolerance. It's like, I don't feel anything. And the next day I wake up, I'm like, oh my God. I feel like shit. Whoa. I was way drunker than I thought. Always amazed at those people that can just sip. You know, maybe it's just how wired like if I'm playing drums, I'm gonna fuck and play drums. If I'm going to go do a towards gonna be really fucking long or some shit. And if I'm going to drink, I'm going to drink. So I don't know. I'm just to fuck and old for it and. I don't know, but this is what always happens now. I'll stop for a while month, two months fucking year, whatever. And then I just I just get bored. This got to be like a. Got to be a hobby that can come up with these fucking people like chasing around the fucking internet. Look at this art deco bar cabinet. I looked up maybe getting an art deco bought hellacious sitting at talking about, I'm not gonna fucking drink anymore. I looked at up. Like fucking six months ago and they just keep now just clicked on it just to talk to you guys about this, we'll just never leave. I don't give a shit what I could be looking up something about platypuses in the side of my fucking thing. It's going to say, art, deco bars. Look at these things. Oh my God. They are beautiful. Expensive shit, though. Jesus. Fuck you paying all of that. My god. But they are. That's my favorite shit. I think also because I grew up watching Bugs Bunny that deco shit. If you watch Bugs Bunny, there's a lot all the buildings and stuff, you know. Which people really hate it. To be honest with you when I came out, they didn't like our deco. They never liked the new ship. You know. Like I never liked the new show was just bitching about bitching about fucking Patrick. Mahomes wasn't even bitching about him. I think he's fucking great, but that that announcing my God, I was a couple of times. I think this is going to faint. I think he's going to fuck it. Pass out this guy like hands off the ball, then giving case keenum no fucking respect whatsoever. The guy only went to the fucking and of see championship game last year, right? Only beat the saints in the last play of the fucking gay right? Granted, that was the saints fucking up of speaking of which set guy plays on the colts. Now, I believe. But. I don't know guess when that shit I came out, people just did not like on any level. Look at that one. Jeez, look at this other thing. You can't fuck and see unique art deco whiskey bar cabinet. Now, how in the fuck am I supposed to not drink. When this bars like this that I can buy. What makes us a whiskey bar Bill? Well, you know what? You put whiskey. Oh, there you go. As a little fuck and holes in it. What he reached down and you get the bottling that comes up like Michael Jackson used to come up out of the stage. I don't like shopping online. I tell you what I need. I need a fucking flyswatter. The mosquitoes are just off the hook right now that I say off the hook that I say they're raising the roof that I used to watch fucking Arsenio hall talk show back in the day. I think I did. I think I did. Yet these things are like they are not taking any prisoners. This is a, this is special forces mosquitoes Welsomer shit, and they fast shit. My my hand eye coordination isn't what it used to be. But really makes the flyswatter is the holes in it. You know what I mean? So it's moving through the air. It's like it's like the stealth bomber. Nobody can hear even got a fucking jet engine size again here, it's that they can't pick it up on radar. Is that what it is. I bet they can know. We don't have made it because he spent so much money. Because I got, we can't find that thing and then they take pictures of it. That's what it is. Okay. Looks like a. Looks like if someone was going to carve a cock, meaning a dick in a Leith and they didn't quite finish sitting quite rounded off. Anyways, the flyswatter because it has all those holes. It's like a Prius when it first starts off, you know, you can't someone's trying to run you down with the Prius when they first left the curb. You wouldn't hear it by the time you re that engine fuck and turned on. It would be too late. That's what it is. The flyswatter is the Prius of of fly killers. I think right because what else you got you got that tape it you hang down. I was taught that that was just brutal. That fucking. That's like that mouse thing. Just go into the glue trap and they like fucking rip themselves apart trying to get out of it. There's no need for that. Just get a cat. Those creepy fucking things. Feeling like somebody's stealing from you. You know, you got just tells you don't trust this person. I've always felt that way about cats. I don't fuck and trust those things. As far as I could throw one, and I would throw him because it's going to land on its paws. Anyways, right anyways, I have a plane to catch everybody. This got to be the biggest bunch of nonsense. I've ever said my fucking life. I'm going to be at the Boston Garden on Friday night and I'm getting together with some friends. I used to play with back in the day Jim during the day in the arena, this time, the forum I will not be going for fucking, you know, three and a half hours among to do like ninety minutes or something get in there have good time and then just fucking leave him want more. So I wanna thank everybody Boston. I sold tickets and I've ever sold on my life. I can't believe it. I'm actually in denial about it so I can fuck in mentally get through it and. It's really going to be crazy because I actually started my stand up career at Nick's comedy, stop on warrant street. March second hundred ninety two and twenty six and a half fucking years later. You know, to be right down the streets. Pretty cool, man. Pretty fucking Cole. But any going to be cool for freckles has a bad show, so I will be making sure let's go now because now it's sober October. Now I said, it's you guys. You know, and I love that Rogan.

And this is the Monday morning podcast for Monday, October fourth, two thousand ten and doing it really, really late super late. Super, super late. Like that whore, you banged the freshman year of fuck in highschool. You know, we'll stop stressing out about it. That's what's making it not happen. You not fucking pregnant. That girl. Everybody had that girl, right. The one girl gets fucking pregnant, like eighth grade. Ninth grade, you know you go back for your ten year high school reunion. She's standing there with a twenty two year old. You like look at you good for you. You're still got it. Actually, that's my son. That's right. You stand there with their three kids and they all have like beards and mustaches or a full racket. Titties. Anyways, I'm super late because I hung around for an extra day in buffalo and consumed about nine thousand calories. I went to a the Buffalo Bills, New York Jets game. And then afterwards I went to the buffalo saber. Philadelphia. Game, and I just had a fucking awesome time out there. The first night actually worked in Albany, New York was working the egg and I want to thank everybody who showed up man. I had a great turnout for both shows. My first little, my first little dip into the theater market stuck my little toe in there. You know. That I gotta tell him and the scariest, fuck and flight. I've had ten years flying in from Chicago. Albany, right. I live out here in the fuck and west coast now. So for some goddamn reason, Los Angeles is international airport, but that's not true. It's because it's the other side of the country. I mean, I can get a fucking direct flight. To like I dunno Bakersfield trying to pick some fucking obscure city, but whatever to get Albany, I got a fly into Chicago and then that which which was no problem. And then I flew from Chicago to Albany. And when we came in on final approach, I don't know what happened the guys coming in for final approach and we just was we were in this fucking soup. We in this Jaap whatever the pilots call and we're just going up five hundred feet down six hundred backup seven, and we're just in this shit. And if I as I've stated before here on the podcast, I don't mind turbulence. When I'm way up in the fucking air. I don't give a shit drop a thousand feet worth thirty thousand off the fucking ground. I don't care right. But when you like coming in on final approach, all of a sudden drop in five, six hundred feet. You know, you start hitting TV and tennis, like back in the day, like Fred Flintstone when he didn't wanna get busted for whatever the fuck he was doing right? And he started driving around the neighborhood last. So in the end tennis. That was he was he cheated on Wilma. Am I doing some some stand up comedy material from the nineteen eighties is, is that what I'm doing? Who is it? Do. So would just in this shit, and this guy says weren't final approach. Okay. And like fifteen fucking minutes later, I'm just looking out the window doing what I always do going. Give me some lights. Let me see some fucking lights of the city, so I can figure out how high up we are. So I can figure out how much I need to be freaking out. And we just kept flying through this shit, and it was like really, really bad to the point. I was actually feeling a little bit. Queasy, right. And this guy's not saying shit, and I'm thinking, fuck were flying into Albany, who flies into Albany, you know, is that the fucking? Is that Tom Brady flying that plane or do we got the backup? Why don't we know is fucking name? Albany. The studs, they flying into JFK. They fly into LaGuardia. They fly into Newark, they don't fly into Albany. Right. So I'm sitting there freaking the fuck out going up. Got we got. We got the fucking backup to the backup. We got Trent Dilfer backup plant flying the goddamn plane. And so I did some. I've done in a while. I started praying to God. Well, gee, that's how bad it was. I, the fucking hedge, my bets going, hey, you know, I've been talking a lot of trash about you on the Monday morning podcast. Wait a minute. Do I need to explain it considering you know everything. Now, seriously. I was like, sorry for this. Sorry for that. Sorry for my saids really start to get nervous because we're still fucking. You know, people stomachs drop in and I'm really fucking praying. And then all of a sudden I heard this woman. Puke like ten rows back, right? Everybody is like visibly nervous, and no one has led out the bitchy scream yet. And then I just hear this lady like twelve rose Baco. Right? So I start laughing my fucking ass office exactly what I need a little bit of humor, so I can just completely pave over any sort of a motion that I'm failing. And then we were back in the fucking chop again. And then the pilot finally comes on and says, yeah, they have is in a holding pattern because you can see there's a storm and what I didn't get was, why didn't you fly up above it or fly east of the shit or get away from it. We just stayed in it. We flying in circles in this fucking storm, and we would get to the point where it was sort of tolerable and then go back into it again and it was really getting bad. I'm trying to read a magazine and made me like carsick which I guess is air sick when you're up there, but it's the same shit. And then I heard this guy like two rows behind me. You know, he let out this really bitchy like, ooh, as we were going over the thing and I actually made me fucking angry, you know, Christ sake hold. You fucking get yourself together. Fucking start making those noises making everybody scared you asshole. So we, that's what it was for fucking forty minutes. We were in this shit and people can. People will make ooh, ooh. Like literally like that. And and I'm sitting there trying to fuck and remember what prayers you supposed to say from back in the days when I was an altar boy, right? You're fucking ring the bells and on the third day he said, this is what I've done for you. I came. This is my body. Which will be given up for you. That's a ring, ding, ding, ding, with the fucking the bells, they're at least that's how we did it. You know, that's the only lame attempt at my church. We made to try to fuck and compete with whatever was going on fucking in the inner city. Right? They probably Aretha Franklin headlining or some shit. You just had me looking like a young fucking Opie. Cunningham, whatever the fuck it. God damn dudes name was. I never watched that show the Griffith show. I always find it depressing watching those brokers southern people that town drunk was never funny to me twenty as we finally fucking land and everything was good. Go to Albany, do the gig. Everything's fucking great. Then I go out to buffalo driving across the state of New York, absolutely gorgeous day in the second I even get within the facility. First of all told me it was a fuck at five hour drive six hour drive from Albany to buffalo. What a I don't know. I don't know. I don't know how people drive, but you can go a lot faster than that three hours and fifty minutes. You pussies. So I go in there and the second I get into buffalo, it's like fucking. Pouring down ramp. So I thought I hit the stop on it just to it was the most miserable fucking weather and. I end up doing my show and I don't know what's going on. Fucking tired and I lost interest in this story. What do you think about that? How do I regroup here? You don't fuck me up as I thought I stopped my record of God damnit. This is why I don't do my podcasts on the same day that I fly is because I'm so fucking sleepy that I can't. I can't focus. I keep trying to fuck and keep them a mental going, and I just can't do it. I just can't fuck and do it. Let's let's just try to hit the highlights. I get the buffalo. I do the goddamn show. I have a great time and the other comedian working with me and Paul version will like, well, you know, this is buffalo. They are known for their wings. They're always talking shit, right? Philly. Cheese, steak, go to Philly, cheese, steak, right. You go to fucking Atlantic City. You get you get fucking you get your dick suck in the alley right? Buying the fucking blue and beige Trump. Casino you. Do you do at the ROY in one in Rome? You do what the Romans do. So fuck it. We're in buffalo. Let's go get some goddamn. Buffalo wings get some wings. So there's two places to go. You either go to Duff's. He go to anchor bar and Duff's was right down the street. So we said, fuck it. Let's go there. And I gotta tell you, you wanna talk about living up to the hype fest fucking wings. I ever had. All right. It had a crunchy outside. You don't like what people don't know how to make the wings around the rest of the country. When the crunch the outside is crunchy. That means as my dad would say, Christ, you cook the shit out of. Yeah, usually that means somebody overcooked it. Is my debt eloquently puts cook the shit out of it. So he's always Christ's. You cut this shit out of. Face all twisted up anyways. Let's back when you could curse restaurants, you know, tell you. We lost so many rights after nine, eleven, I swear to God. Remember he used to be able to walk into McDonald's and you get your French fries and they would call and you could just yell at the manager. Hey, a fucking dude. Yeah. What the well, they're fucking Colt. I'm sorry, sir. Let me get you some other ones. Yeah, you do that. Right? Isn't that what you were able to do those? My drinking years. I can't remember. That's how that's how I did it. So anyways, once again, I've lost my train of thought. I don't know where I am. Yes. So we go in there and they're literally they're fucking crunchy on the outside, and they're they're juicy on the inside and they got this unbelievable sauce and we've got the Duff beer. It was this shit. Evidently when Obama went there, this is another place place called anchor bar. And I guess when Obama went thirty flipped a coin, he went to Duff. So we went to the same place, the president went to, but then afterwards. Fuck it. I gotta tell that part of the store out Jesus. You know what this is. This is like the first draft of a script except this is all I got budget for this. Be like a fucking Ed Wood movie cut. That was perfect. Moving on. So the next day I go to the bills game. All right. I'm. I'm doing my little hundred dollar Benham picking three games against the spread. Once again, this week I went one and two. I went one and two last week's on two and four, a pitiful two and four. Even if I teased my team's last week, I still would've lost with the fucking falcons beat the saints and overtime. So this week who did I have first of all dumbest thing, you can do a gambler's. I bet with my heart. So I'm sitting there going, right? The bills are getting five. I know every football fam- out there right now is going, oh, gee, that's because you know the fucking final result. All right. I'm thinking, all right. The jets have been playing great. They should go in and absolutely destroy this team fucking raining out. It's a divisional rivalry. This is the exam. They got a couple of injuries, and the secondary's is exact kinda fucking game that goes the exact opposite way, right? Plus a hate the jet. So I say, fuck it. I'm taking the bills. And then I also took the Bengals against Cleveland. I lost that one. And there was one other one that I took. I picked the. Fuck and ravens. I gotta stick with the ravens man. The ravens have been good to me and so of the lions. But I think the cat's out of the bag that the lions can actually hang. So then I could be getting fucking thirteen point spreads anymore. But anyways. So I show up there right, and I'm walking into the stadium. Fucking rain and out cheeses. I fucked this part of the story up to, you know what? Fuck this podcast. Gracia cooked a shed out of. And. Yeah, it was fucking rain in on this one thing I've learned that when you go to a football game and you're dealing with the elements. This, the more of a douchebag you look like the warmer, you're gonna be. All right. I saw the rain and I said, fuck this. And we went right to Dick's sporting good, and I'm like, I'm buying that fucking. I'm gonna buy a raincoat with the matching raincoats slacks. I don't give a fuck. I bought a pair of wool socks, and I was good to go. So I'm with version and you know, they only had like to rank coats left and they were the exact same color this fucking grape slush puppy purple. So we both have matching extra large, fuck, and we got the jackets and the pants like we're working at a fucking airport. And what would bring in the fucking soul plane. Right. That was a purple airplane, right? That's the way look like. So we show up to the game, right? Neither one of us is comfortable because neither one of the jets are a bills fan. So we're in enemy territory and fucking drizzling and out. It's fucking cold. So I proceed to put on this bar. Any the dinosaur outfit? Right? And right off the bat, Virzy starts pumpkin, outgoing, man. I'm just gonna. I'm just gonna wear the. I'm just gonna wear the top. I'm just gonna wear the top trying to act like it's not raining out that bed. The reality is is he didn't want to go through the hazing that he would have to. If the two of us walked in with our purple on purple, fuck and ring coats times to, we would have got a ton of shit and I was prepared to take. I had. I had a whole fucking silly walk. I was going to be doing. I don't give a fuck, so he'd punked out. So we ended up walking in, but my head's cold, right? I'll I have a baseball cap on, so I'm like, fuck I gotta buy a hat. Can I buy a bills who gives a fuck there unless pace mail by bills head. And then I saw this one with the patriot logo on it. I said, fuck it. I'll get that. Once I put that one on, I'm nice and warm. We go will call. We picked up our tickets. We go into that high school football stadium that they have out there that I actually love looks like an old school football stadium. Football stadium. That's about the size of football stadium that holds real fans. You know what I mean? All these, these new ones that hold one hundred thousand fuck competes all the bandwagon shit hits. You know, when you're in for the real, fuck it fan show up Erwin three, right? So we walk into the God. Damn stadium will love and life, right? I'm already laughing at version because I know damn, well, what's going to happen? He's gonna walk out there. There's gonna be some shitty little plastic seat that's going to be covered in fucking water. And the only way he's going to be able to absorb it is through his goddamn jeans and his fucking BVD's. And then he's going to be sitting there with a wrinkled up nut sack. That's going to be getting hypothermia by second quarter. Why do I know this? Because I've been there. So we got a couple of years. We get this fucking beef on a stick or whatever the fuck they call it. We're good to go. We go in there, sit down. He sits basically down in fucking puddle. He tried to stick a newspaper, which is very. Absorbed and I don't know. We sat there and I had hope for about eight seconds in that game, and the jets came down and just fucking do they just kick the shit out of Christ kicked shit out of them. And. It was just over. So we'd so mmediately our solution is just to start drinking the way we drank at the master's. Fuck it. Let's let's let's get going here. Right. So we'll make a trip after trip and all of a sudden I gotta take the piss right? So I go and I'm standing in line and all of a sudden this fucking six-foot-five goofy looking jackass. One of those guys like six foot five, but you still think he can take him because he's just covered in baby fat. You know he's got a couple of whiskers on his chin and his cheeks rosier than Saint Nick, right? He's got this jersey on and this big stupid. I'm a Buffalo Bills fan with the horns on it and stuff. You know, he's the wacky guy, so I'm not even thinking shit, right? This bills jets. I don't have a dog in this fight. I'm not talking any shit. I'm fine. I forgot I was wearing my patriots hat. And all of a sudden is big. Jackass starts going, we was what you where you're patriots fan. You like the rats. We gotta read on me the rats. He likes to fuck in rats and shit. Right? And I'm like, yeah, you know whatever. He starts giving me shit. I start giving him shit back. Then the weirdest fucking thing happened by the time I get in to the actual men's room I've talked, I've given these people so much fucking shit that actually there's bills and jets fans at a bills and jets game playing. Each other thing. Stop giving each other shit and they teamed up together and started giving me shit. Right? And then I just said, I don't know what I was thinking. I felt like I was on stage because it was like a crowd. I wasn't thinking like, hey, what Bill you really haven't had a fight outside of your family since maybe playing stuck in street hockey. In the sixth grade, I didn't give a fuck. I'm in a goddamn bathroom waiting to take a pissing goddamn trough by the way. And. And then they started giving fucking this one on Tom Brady sucks. He sucks and he's like, miming it like ridiculously wealth. So I'm like, hey, buddy. Do that real well, because I learned it by watching Tom Brady, Mike, edgy rent that porno you fucking fag gets a little uglier gets a little uglier than this other dude, what the fuck. They came up with the hell. He was saying to me and I just said, look, I'm sorry, you guys have never won a Super Bowl. You know, then the jets fan pipes in d realize the last time you guys want a Super Bowl, Charlie Chaplin was still alive. Do you understand that? Do you know what cars look like the last time you won you fucking morons. And then this other guy, we've won three Superbowls I'm sorry. Right. And then the guy goes, you didn't play in the games. I go. Neither did you then? He's just standing with his dumb look on his face. I go. That's right. Keep stare at four with you. Got nothing forgetting that. I don't know how to fight. So all of a sudden it's my. Turn to piss. I take my dick out. I'm ready to piss and one of these fucking pussies push me in the back, hoping that I was pissing at the time. Fortunately I wasn't so I turn around. I put my deck away. 'cause I'm a gentleman. I said, you guys do it out here. Really? I go, which one guys push me like I'm gonna funding. I'm fucking Jackie Chan, and for some reason, none of them said anything. I don't know if it was my purple on purple rain coat or the look of fire. My I, but I'm a fucking forty two year old balding redhead talking shit in there and none of them said anything. So now it's kind of funny to me. I felt like I was in the World Series of poker and I went all in and I didn't have a hand whatsoever. So I don't know who the fuck push me, but that's, I mean, come on bitchy is move the fuck and we cut. He do that. How do you do that? How do you? How do you push another man when he's got his God damned dick out trying to piss into a fucking trough. How do you get lower than that? You guys have any ideas? How do you get. So then after none of Senator thing I go back and start taking a pitch, and then that other dude who was miming somebody sucking dick unbelievably well. Next to me with one of those stupid hats that has the toggles on the side. And he's still trying to give me shit and I'm gonna go, fuck yourself. And then he just starts screaming over and over again. I you looking at my dick, you looking at my deck maniacally like five times, I just sort of stared at Mike. Why do you keep going this gang? Like? Why is there always. I don't know. I think he was one of those guys. He was kind of in the closet and then so he just goes to football games and he gets really drunk trying to just kill the families. I think he liked me is what I'm saying. So if he's listening to this, I'm sorry, I'm spoken for fucking pans. You fucking believe that first of all, what's wrong with me, I really replayed all of that in my head because once I got out of there, I was like, I really started thinking like, what did you think you were going to do in there? They're not Clint Eastwood yet saying things Clint Eastwood would say what? What the fuck is wrong with you? I've said this before in a podcast, a public bathroom is the worst fucking place to ever get into a fight. There is nothing soft. This everything is porcelain pipes, that concrete floor, and then it has a mist of piss and shit. It's just a fuck. It's the worst. The worst place ever. You know not to mention. It usually starts evidently, when one person as begun the pissing process. So you know, older little bit wiser. So then I'm standing in line to go get some more alcohol. God knows that's what you need after an incident like that. And I was just kind of just sitting there thinking like, all right now, how should I have played that. It should ended when the dude with the water. Buffalo hat started giving me shit. What I should have done was roll with it. I should you like the patriots. I should've been like, you know, you guys scored thirty on his last week, man, you guys look, great man. I bet the jets. I mean, I bet against the jets. I hope he should've just ended it with that ended. It I, I should've. I should've extended all of branch. That's what I should done in the future. That's what the fuck I'm going to do because. That was a that was a potentially ugly situation. But fortunately. I think the people who are doing it, you know, had jobs and no one wanted to get sued and known was willing to take it to that level. And when I say fortunately, I mean for me in my face. Do you know how bad that would have been to get stopped in that? Fuck and purple on purple raincoat laying there with my dirty fucking patriots. At MIT wasn't even playing. I would've lost the lawsuit. They wouldn't let me get this straight. You're a patriots fan. You were patriots hat to a bills jets game, and you somehow managed to get the shit kicked out of what the fuck. Did you say? You know, that's one of the great things about being a guy is you actually have to take responsibility for your for your actions. See, won't be like there's no excuse the reason. I don't care what happened. You know, had a girl which is true. You don't fucking girl, but there's no learning in that. There's no lesson. You know, even my best friends would have been like, yeah, those guys are fucking assholes in the, but the one of an awkward pause and it'd be like with the fuck talk and shit for by yourself at a game. When you team isn't even fucking play, what's wrong with you? You forty two years old. It shed together and they would have been right. So anyways, fortunately, the bills are smart enough to stop serving alcohol at halftime. So when I went to go get more beer. There wasn't any to be had. So I walked back there and I'm laughing my ass off telling version the fucking story, and he informs me that fucking Sanchez through a bomb to that fucking drunk driver there and. And I was just saying cheeses. Here we go. Here we fucking patriots up. Thirty points to this fucking team and the jets raping them like, this are the patriots that bad. I said, we were nine and seventeen. Now, if they could fucking seven and nine. So. Whatever. So that was rough and then ended up getting into it with some other jet fan. I'm just a dick a dick when I'm sober and then you add alcohol, and that goes to the next level. And then when I go to a sporting event, I become another person entirely. I don't know what it is. I just. I know I love it. I love being at the game at the stadium. I get excited and then I'm a dick and I say, I say things that I shouldn't be saying. And I just started giving this lady shit and she was bragging about the jets and I just kept asking over and over again. What is it like to share a stadium. You know, why couldn't she just sit there and enjoy the fact that she was winning? Why did I have to ruin it? Why is my level of hatred for all New York teams to to that level? It's pathetic. It's really pathetic, but it is what it is. So anyways, most people would call it a day after that point, but not me. Not verbally not us. Fuck that. We're going to the sabres flyers game after this. There's more bears to be drank, so and we got check out this fucking anchor bar to compare their wings to Duff's. Right. Fucking doing buffalo up. That's what you do. You sit out in the fucking shit, whether you watch the bills, get their ass. Kicked yomas, get beat down with your dick out the fucking bathroom, and then you go get some wings and hit the sabres game afterwards. If there's something else to do out there, I didn't see it right Nagara falls one of my fucking honeymoon. Anyways, who goes the Niagara Falls, honeymoon. How far back into the Staples warehouse? Are you working that that's where you go. That's what I want to know. So anyways. Fucking cruise back to the hotel. Get out of our fucking Barney, the dinosaur, fuck, rank coats and. I had to get directions. We fuck in flew down to the sabres game. This is what kills me. We, we go to. We go to anchor bar. I, I was thinking the game was at seven and eight turns out it's fucking six. So we're pulling into anchor bar at a quarter to six get ready to have some fucking wings with still just having a great time. I can put the windows down. I could smell up. This is going to be this shit, right? Just literally gained like twenty pounds yesterday. So right. As we pull in the radio comes on and says, the sabres drop the puck in fifteen minutes. So we're like five and we start driving really fast, not knowing where we were going to go. 'cause the plan was to get wings and then sauce on a face. Well, we went to shavers play. That's that. That was that was the game plan. But now we have to fuck and start driving, and we ended up pulling over and. These three black dudes walk in a cross the street roll down the window a. Do you have any idea where the sabers play. Look at me breaking down stereotypes and it turns out the dude whereafter actually African, we go where you know, how do we get to the SPCA SC fucking arena. Ordered is very fun. You had to. I doing Africa accent, but I could just tell the way he was rolling his eyes that it was really far, but I was thinking, wait a minute, this guy walking does he mean by bus. Who the fuck knows whatever long story short we ended up getting up there, so we just think we're going to walk up. It's a preseason game. We're just going to buy tickets at the booth. No can do. I think I bought a bad pack of batteries. They said fucking Duracell on him. I think they were bootleg God damn things. They're only good for a half a fucking our. All right. Let's pick up the pace with the damn story again. So we walk up there. It's a, it's a preseason game, and we go up to buy tickets and they're sold out. Unbelievable for the sabres flyers were like, fuck. Going to drop the puck and five minutes we go. We gotta go scout some tickets and I didn't see anybody selling near the arena. And I came walking out and I see this nerdy looking white dude with a sweater walking up and just yelled who's got tickets, and he goes, I got to right here. I got to write air and fucking bottom off. Sixty bucks a whack set right on the club level. They got everything from sushi to. I only have sushi had like ice cream, which is really fucking ridiculous. At a hockey game, maybe get an ice cream sandwich, but they had like it looked like what? Senate talion rest restaurant. They talion ice cream. That's this July. They got like that level ice cream, you know, are you really gonna come back with that on a cone licking cone as you watch two people beat the shit out of each other. So anyway we get. It's just first of all, the sabers arena is this shit. All right for the exact opposite. Re- reason that I loved the buffalo. I love the Buffalo Bills stadium because it reminds me it's it's what football stadiums looked like when I was a kid, I'm not insulting you guys out there. I think it's the shit. I like it. I hate those brand new fucking stadiums that are the size of God damn mountain. I hate them. I can't stand him that to fucking expensive. They rape you in the ass for for tickets because they gotta pay for the fat fucks who sit in the luxury boxes who don't even give a shit about the damn team, and they wanna sit inside and want your game. Fuck all those places. So, but the sabres far as a new arena, man, that's right up there with. As far as the new arenas goes, the best one I've seen like the Minnesota wild. The Phoenix coyotes had a really nice one. And the worst one I've been to was the Boston Bruins. We have the worst brand new fucking arena you're ever going to go to. It's like a bomb shelter. They went out. They went down to the fucking Grossman's hardware and they bought up all the cinder blocks in the state. That's what they did. And then they just glued them together and painted them yellow and fucking black. They go. They go. This put the Bruins and the seventeen time world champion Boston Celtics, they, you go, give you some yellow, plastic seats have fun. Everybody. But the sabres arena man was it was beautiful. Scoreboard was to shit, and they had the the sabres head. Hang. That was fucking awesome. And it with the game was nine to two sabres kick the shit out of him and. You know, I was make fun of those people. Listen to the radio when they watch a game, like what you can't see what the fucks going on. Well, evidently I couldn't because I saw what I thought was. Daniel Carcelle oh, getting beaten down to the ice. I saw the sabre in this flyer. Go at it and they appeared to both drop the gloves and they'll save or guy went what day, where does twice straight in this guy's face. And by the second one, the guy was falling, backward city ice, and he did. You know that final UFC you're not knocked out enough. I'm gonna punch you as you're on the ground overhand. Right? Where a days to his fucking face, and I was like, wow. Wow. Who was that? Who did that? And who was that? Who got fucked up and then five minutes later car Sylla was over by the penalty box and he got a game as conduct. I go. Did he do that? The car was he embarrassed. We came out and he tried to do a handsome brother thing and fight him the second. The do came out and turned out it wasn't him. It was somebody else I heard he didn't even drop the gloves, which explain why? What does what does what does happen? How do you do that? How do you not drop the gloves when someone else drops the gloves? If you don't wanna fight, can't you just fuck and drop the gloves to hang on and turn the other way and give up the back of your head. How I would've thought in that bathroom. The noise. Can you imagine the noise of five people trampling me the echoing the perfect acoustics of fucking goddamn men's room. Anyway, so and then we end the night, the end of the night, we. We saw great God damn game. So that six, four, eight psycho path that I wanna see chara fight on defense. And then we went, we left. Going down to anchor bar. We show up and get this for the third time in the history of that place. They ran out of wings. They ran out of wink's like you fucking kidding me went down to watch the giants game firs, big giants fan, right? So we go, fuck it will stay here anyways. And. I don't know as Paul about there. I don't want to trash the place because I know it's legendary, but go on Paul's Facebook page in ask him how he enjoyed the mixed drinks there because he had a little issue. He had a little bit of an issue there. You know what I mean? You know the deal ailing beget. Let me get absolute on the rocks. Absolutely, you know, and then you just see them pouring it out of fucking jelly jar and you're like, what? What kind of absolute is that. Absolutely. My friends vodka. Daddy makes down the street. You fucking prick. So we actually didn't have a good time anchor bar. We showed up and they were outta wings and then they tried to pass off some shit vodka is the real thing. Is that how they do it at the anchor bar. I'm still going to go back there and try their wings. I got. I gotta check it out. I mean, like to everything inside you go inside there and they had like, fuck. And it was like a motorcycle museum, like real motorcycles above it. They license plates everywhere from like Hawaii too, like the Northwest Territories. Then like license plate shaped like a bear in there. That's how far north, these fucking ice road truckers come to come down and get them sales fucking buffalo wings. So we did it up. We did buffalo, you know, actually, if I got into a fight in loss but didn't really get hurt, that really would have made that would have been great little bit of blood in my purple fucking ring coat. The fuck is wrong with me, but let's get to the questions this week. Everybody this actually a really. Considering that that happened. And. By somebody sent me a great. Podcast question about that under the new topic sports cuts. And by the way, I'm going to get out of the sports talk after a while. Like when I went real hardcore conspiracy theory and talked about banks every week, and then that got boring while the sports thing is only going to be interesting for so fucking long, but we're really in the throes of it right now and for a lot of you, this is like during the sopranos when Tony was in that fucking. Out of body state where he walked around didn't talk like Tony soprano member that shit do ya. Okay. Let me just levels here. Hope these two loud. Okay. So here we go sports Bill. All right. Anyway, all of your jets hating made me want to Email you. I went to the jets pats game for week two. I'm a patriots fan by the way, and I love to hear you your take on fans who attend football games. It's fucking incredible. I went with my girlfriend who was wearing a Brady jersey now know that this is an away game, everybody. Okay. They went to New Jersey to watch the New York Jets play in Giants Stadium. It's joint committee shot up. We pull into the parking lot and every and people were literally moving their chairs into the open parking, open parking space. Not letting me park saying patriots aren't allowed hair and he the guy writes, ha, I get it. Now, can you please move? No one would fucking move to mazing. It's like, okay, I fucking get it. You hate the pats. Now get the fuck out of my way and let me park. So they finally move and we get out and start walking towards the stadium. He goes, these people start following us, calling us every name you can think of. And he's like, like, really? Do you have do you, what? Do you have a fucking family or anything else in your life? You take this game this seriously. I would've said something, but they were like nine guys, but, hey, welcome to my world. Well, the my with just thank God. You weren't taken a piss at that time. They were like nine guys, six girls calling me a pitch me. It's loving faggots anyways, faggot really. So we keep walking and pass some normal people who heckle in the right way. You're going down Brady sucks. I get that. It's fine. Best comeback by the way is just to keep walking through the parking lot responding with nineteen sixty nine. They hate that, but I only pull that card in response. Okay. So now we're going up the Galeta some guy's going the other way on the escalator and start screaming, you roll MRs ugly as that fucking Brady jersey. You have on all this girlfriend. Wow. Go back to Boston. You fag it. What the fuck. Then at our seats, there was a fucking juiced up Royd head screaming his fucking face off, turning red punching the shit out of the seats, screaming the entire game. There was a fucking dad and his twelve year old daughter in front of. Anyway, I just love to hear your take on these fucking lunatics like I get it. You love football, but really, is there nothing else in your life that you take this seriously. All right. While you're talking to guy who's been on both? I've never gone. I've never called someone fag it, and I never do that. There's more of us than you so much trying to intimidate you think I'm more of the loan wise ass talk and shit to someone who can beat the shit out of me, but this is what you've got. Understand. All right. Just to avoid. These situations as sports fans. This is this is what I found you can. All right. First of all, if you're going to go into another person's stadium. Okay. And not only where the other team's jersey, but the jersey of a team that is literally kick the shit out of the other team. I mean, the patriots since two thousand one have basically kicked the shit out of the jets twice a year every fucking year for almost ten years or the very least we've won like eighty percent of the fucking games. So that jersey, it's like, you know, you gotta understand, that's you're, you're bringing up a lot of bad memories and those people who actually don't let you park there. Yeah, they are taking it too far a little bit on both sides. You know what I mean? It's like you kinda, you know. You know, slice in your leg and then jumping in shark infested water, and then getting upset that you getting fucking leg bit off. I mean, I think it's bullshit. I don't know, but I do get it like people should get shit. Okay. That reut it out guys who who's punching the back of the seats. Like I mean, that's that's kind of par for the course. I hate to say it is par for the course like the eagles fans really get or Philly fans get way too much credit for psychos. They kind of act. It's kinda like racism how they act like it's only white people in the south, you know, like that's where it is. And it's kind of like Philly gets all the ship or credit depending if you're proud of it and not that like only moron asshole fans are in Philly. I mean, I've been to games in Philly. The one of the worst experiences I had was going to San Diego Chargers game. Once again with my patriot fucking hat on like an asshole, you'd think I'd learned from that. Yeah, my take on that is, yeah. You know, there should be. This fun talking shit. And then there's the talk and shit where it's not fun like someone pushes you way trying to take a piss or they start, you know, saying your girlfriend's ugly, whatever the fuck. They were trying to say there, but. If you wear the jersey team, you walk in, you gotta expect that someone's going to call you pussy or probably throw the last bite of their hotdog at you. What's going to happen? People are drinking and you know, a lot of people don't like their lives. They don't like their married to. They don't like their job. Or maybe they're just a dick who else, but you gotta understand that basically, you know. You wore the jersey of team. That's one three Super Bowls into the stadium of a team that, like I said, Charlie Chaplin was alive the last time the jets wanted. Okay, Harry, Truman was alive. Dwight D Eisenhower was alive the last time the jets wanted. All right. And I'm not trying to give the judge shit. I'm just I'm just trying to show compassion here. Brett farve wasn't even alive the last time the jets wanted. Okay. So you gotta you gotta be a little more compassionate. To the jets fan, like the Dallas Cowboys were considered. Bridesmaids could always get to the big dance but could never win it the last time the jets won the Super Bowl, you know. Richard Nixon was president. Spiro Agnew vice president. Cost of new home was twenty seven thousand five hundred dollars. That was the average price. Average cost of new car was three thousand two hundred seventy dollars the last time the I'm not giving the judge shit here by bringing out the staggering facts. I'm just trying to say, you know, you gotta you gotta show little compassion. You have to understand that these poor bastards the last time they wanted. The population of this country was only two hundred and two million. Do you understand that. Then one along fucking. Price of gas was thirty five fucking cents. Do you really think that you're gonna walk in with the jersey of a guy who's created them so much fuck and misery, who was a haircut that they can't stand who's banging the hottest fuck and brought on the planet. Right now, you know, living the life that they wanna live, but can't, you know, as they strain in the upper deck of trying to figure out what the fuck is going on? Yes, you're going to get called a faggot. Do I think it's right? No, I, I wish there was friendlier ball busting. I really wish that more people knew how to break balls and I'm cluding myself more people knew into shut the fuck up like me, you know, like I should've, I should've tapped out and I didn't so anybody bad sporty. What's your worst. Experience as a fan like I could tell you like back in the day, I would wear a Red Sox hat to a Yankees game in Yankee Stadium before two thousand four. I would do it because you know. We had, what? What did we do to them? Blow leads and lose. But once we fucking hung the biggest choke in professional sports history around the goddamn next, then it became a different thing. And then we wanted again. And then all of a sudden I noticed started getting hostels like, all right, this isn't cool anymore. This isn't being taken. This isn't a funny thing anymore. This I'm not the fucking the fuck and happy. Go lucky kid who's just hoping to see once I've seen it twice since the last time they wanted it noticeably got ugly. This same way the patriots stadium went from an absolute fucking zoo to being this sort of classier place to go see a goddamn game when we were winning. And that was the thing anybody can be classy when they're winning. But you know, you see the fans really are when you fucking losing. Like when the patriots Red Sox finally beat the Yankees and they didn't like when a rod slap the ball down, they didn't like that. They didn't get that call like they had been so many other fucking years that God damn fans pulling routine, fly balls into the fucking stands for home, runs Reggie Jackson leaning into the ball. They always get those calls and all of a sudden they didn't get through fucking temper tantrum started littering the field, right? The classy Manhattan nights that they are. So I don't know. Yeah, yes. Basically, all sports fans behavior needs to be needs to improve. And it starts with me just like that. Michael Jackson song, starting with the man in the mirror. No one, they pushed me purple and purple rain coat. It wasn't fucking thick, and I would have pushed me to all right question of the week. Somebody wrote Bill, why do you hate Stoner's. Oh, yeah. Because last week I was making fun of my stone of friend. I don't hates donors. I was I stone who call me up and trash my life because they don't like their own. Alright, start making it about yourself. All right. This person actually wrote and thought that I smoked weed, which is that's one of the things that is unknown annoying about Stoner's after they smoke long enough. They think that the only way to have creative thought is to be sucking the dick of that plant. Well, I just lost my stone or I just don't. I, you know what it is. I don't like the fucking. I don't like putting smoke into my lungs. I just, you know, there's two things you don't want your lungs. Okay. You know, once smoke and you don't want water. So I wouldn't slowly inhale a glass of water and slowly drown myself over sixty years. I wouldn't do that either, but I have to admit I, I've tried a couple of times. I didn't try to thirty seven to how Larry is that. And then I finally tried it and it was exactly what I was afraid of was I fucking loved it, but I just can't. I just can't get that image of that person's smoking through the hole in that throat. I, I don't want lung cancer, so I don't fuck with it, but it's a lot harder to see your liver shriveling up as you booze. Anyways, hey, Bill, if you've seen the infomercial for the I renew bracelet. I'm sure you have. It's this magic bracelet that makes you have better balance strength, endurance, and sleep better. Hell you might even be wearing one right now to bring up to bring the funny out in you. It's a little piece of rubber with shiny piece of metal on it. Probably cost two dollars to make one hundred of them. It channels your body's energy or some shit. Maybe it works. I don't know. You know what's crazy. People are buying these things for twenty dollars a pop. Someone's getting rich off this gimmick. God bless them for finding an angle to make some dough. I think it's in the same category as the fifty dollar gold coins for ten bucks. Yeah, it's exactly at. I think whoever came up with that as a genius and those really bad actors where they act like they can't stand upright yet somehow they were able to make it to the mall to go on film with those stupid bracelets. The second put the bracelet on mazing. I can't believe it. Bracelets are a great way to go. You know what you do make bracelet that actually says it'll make you dick bigger or give you a flat tummy for the ladies. You know something like that. I don't know. I'm getting sleepy again. I told you some good stories here. Having I, you know the last time the jets won the Super Bowl. Jim Brown was the all time rusher leading rusher and behind him was Joe Perry. Not from Aerosmith. Joe Perry from nineteen forty eight or son all the fuck you played for the top three would Jim Brown, Joe Perry and Jim Taylor. Okay. The guy from fucking Aerosmith was second behind Jim Brown in rushing. That's how long it's been since the jets won it. So, yeah, you can't wear a Tom Brady jersey down there. By the way. Thank God, my patriots. Fucking one tonight. Jesus Christ, and I'll tell you as much as the score was lopsided there. Gee, there's a lot of water. A lot of water leaking into that ship, Jesus Christ. I don't know what the fuck is with our defense, but so much of the game. We look like we're in a prevent. It's fucking ridiculous. So my big prediction this week, I'm a big prediction. My big question this week is if Ben Rothlisberger comes back, doesn't miss a God damn step. And just plays the way that guy can play. And that defense plays the way it's been playing. I put them atop the AFC. I would say that they, they are the team to beat the fact that they went three and one with a third string, fuck and quarterback. And basically, I mean. What they lost them, like the last play, the game, they they were that close to going four? No, that's how good they're fucking defenses. And then not only that that third, string, quarterback, all that experience tell you Big Ben comes in right. And just kicks ass. And then they just stick them in an armored car and they drive them past all those hooters and just get him home. I think the Steelers might be going for number seven, how fucking bad ass with that be? That would be that would be something. All right. Here we go. I remember a couple years ago, we will want Super Bowl behind them. Like here we go Steelers. Next, we're going to catch them. And then what happened? Nothing than they want to more. So we're fucking in the dust again. All right. Asshole friends. I asked you guys for some stories about asshole friends. His one for you just wanted to the right off the bat. Okay. Where do I start this? Fuck you guys? I'm tired when I start at the beginning just wanted to say, oh, exactly what's like to have a buddy always seems to have shit in his diaper and just has that puppy dog looking his eye that says, hey, bro, can you deal with my shit before you get a rash last night? I was at a local bar just relaxing and enjoying a couple of beers with the girl I've been talking to Anna buddy. I hadn't seen in about a year Moses on over. I'm excited. You know, he's an old high school buddy, and I'm expecting to have a good couple of last with this guy right off the bat. I asked him how he's doing just expecting them to say, you know, say something like good. How about you? Like any normal icebreaking human being right. What he says. I say, how you doing. He just size. And looks at his beer, and then it was feet and I'm just like, God, damn it. Here we go. He goes on about I was mommy kicked him out of the house that he's got something wrong with his neck, that a heat pad won't get out something about a DUI. Then he has the nerve to complain. I, we got turned down for government assistant checks. It's like ever heard of aids in Africa, motherfucker of Jesus. You went all the way to the end with that one. Needless to Sam, getting annoyed at this point. And I say, well, shit, man, you know, we all gotta grow up. What a great fucking line. Then I offered to talk to my boss to try and get this guy job so he can get back on his feet. He then looks fended. Pissed off that I didn't rub his belly, wipe his bubbling lips and tell them everything was going to be just fine and throw a couple of quarters into his little ten Cup. Exactly exactly. How old are you fucking move on. Get a goddamn job. Your bum. So anyways, the guy in nounce when after the kids said, we all gotta grow up sometime he, he announced his. I wasn't born to be a slave, dude. Fuck that noise and I'm just thinking yet. Maybe you shouldn't have been born at all. As I turned back to my lady. I know that's a harsh thought, but when you're born with the fully functioning brain in a nice area with a good educational system with every opportunity in the world to not suck and you still apply for government assistance, it's like do us tax rape victims of favor and do a triple Lindy running Dangerfield style down a flight of fucking unforgiving stairs. All right. Yeah. Have to go with you on that one. Yeah, those guys, they're the fucking worst. I love that. You said that to them to while you know, we all gotta grow up sometime. I wasn't put on this earth to be slave man. What are you fucking king just going to sit around and have other people bring wealth to you? I don't know. I got no comeback for him. I'm fucking exhausted. I'm going to wrap this up, then I shut it off again. Now. Why did not? All right, let's wrap it up a little overrated underrated and some YouTube videos for the week. Overrated popular rap in hip hop music since nineteen ninety four. If a six month old song is considered dated and dead than it wasn't good to begin with, no one listens to jar rule or Nellie or fifty cent anymore. Just like no one will listen to Kanye west little Wayne in five years. If music were a food than modern mainstream rap would be McDonalds, it's on every corner, easy to put together and it gives grownups horrible diarrhea. All right. I don't know much about hip hop. You know, little way. Fifty cent now. Since nineteen ninety four. What about biggie didn't like any shit. There's a couple of guys. I know wasn't Naza ill Matic wasn't around then I don't know about that album, but everybody says that is unbelievable. I know what you say enough all these auto tune fucking songs out there. I get it. I get it. All right. Underrated not going out every weekend and spending one hundred dollars at a bar or club. Yeah, I'm twenty one and I'm supposed to get out there and have fun, meet new people and shit. Like you said, it's hard to meet girls when it sounds like you got a base drum chilling in your ear, just non just nine away at some broad. You know, you won't sleep. You know, won't sleep. What just nodding away at some broad, you know, you won't sleep with and you're just hoping to God. She didn't just ask you a question that requires an answer, call me lane, but I'd rather hang out on a porch on a nice night with some good friends. Sweet girls just fucking drinking, a good beer. You rain a country song here. Hanging out on front porch was good friends and sweet girl drinking some, fuck and good. Bear with the game on you and good conversation and rock and roll in CD player. I'm not writing these lyrics. Maybe you won't wake up with a hole in your pocket bleed nears. Let's do it for America. Keep it up motherfucker. Yeah. All right. You too videos. Yeah. Hear what you're saying. Yeah, chilling home. Fuck and trying to bang the girl next door. They go, save you money. I'm with that. I'm with that. I got a underrated not having a bunch of dum dum Horts with their tits and asses hanging out, run out on a football field during halftime. I want the old fucking school bands to come back out again. Did you see at horseshoe tonight? You know Kelly Rowland up in the stands that it was the girl from Destiny's Child. William, I survived that we're. Gives a fuck gives up. She's up on the stand like the desperately trying to make music without a band. Interesting. I'm sick of it. I want musicians to come back, you know, and I want them to play in musical fucking. Atmospheres wanna see, fucking football game, get goddamn hundred men marching band to come out there right. Just play the old school songs adept bap. Bap, bam, bam, bam, bam, bam, bam. Yeah, but that's shit. You fucking coming out there with you. Got them shit talking about breast cancer. I understand. I know it's a problem. You didn't write your fucking song for breast cancer. You trying to use breast cancer now to to sell some fucking CDs. Because that other one with the off of voices selling more than you, is that what you're doing. How is that less offensive than Janet Jackson's Titi coming out his fucking beyond me. Tell you that right now, you know all those fucking horse walking around with their fucking asses and titties hanging out. You know, why don't you fucking get a God damn job. You're dumb, Horts Jesus. Fuck. What would you be doing if you didn't have happy goods hanging out of your fucking shorts? You know, do you have any fucking talent whatsoever? You can do a split. Great, fantastic. That mean you gotta put on some cowboy boots and get stuck to the goddamn astroturf and front of eighty thousand fucking people on Monday night football. I don't think it does. I don't think it means that at all. I think that's that's a sign that you suck as a musician. If you sing at halftime at a football game, that pretty much means that you suck your music sucks or you've completely sold out as a God. Damn you. All right. That goes to those fucking play. The Super Bowl too. I don't give a shit fucking Bruce Springsteen screaming about dip and sliding around on his fucking knees like he's not sixty. Jesus Christ. He got some good plastic surgery, right? That guy was like thirty five forty five fifty five fifty six forty one. He's forty one again. I don't know how the fuck you did it. You got his face yanked back and it actually looks good. You know why? Because they practiced on all those real housewives of fuck in New Jersey and Orange County, and all that shit. That's what they did. They practiced on their faces. They went to. It's not do that again. All right. Let's scratch that technique off the list. Let's let's try this. That's a little bit better. Only looks like half lizard. That's what you gotta do. Like I said, it's like fucking hair plugs hair plugs in the God. Damn nineties looked horrific. And now I gotta tell you these guys swimming around the pools. You know, aside from the psychotic look in there, I like, do I look? Okay? Other than that, they're, they're hairline. I can't tell all right. YouTube videos for the week. I was talking about those free free climbers or jumpers or whatever the fuck. It was free runners. I wanna to see a chase scene. Somebody said his video district be thirteen chasing. Actually, I have more. These are just weird videos this week. Okay. That's actually a cool one. Here's a weird one proper possum. Pedicure search that. And then this is one I swear to God. I didn't think it was real, but look up up sweet home, Alabama. And there's some lady singing just scroll down past all the Leonard. Skinner d- and just look for the fat woman with one tooth. And for some reason, I don't think that she realized that. Got a million and a half hits. And here's another one fake rapture prank. This is all one word fake. Rapture, RA p. t. u. r. e. prank. All one word. It's basically do you guys know what the rapture Izzo. Do you know what that is? That's basically when Jesus right before Jesus comes back now. Correct me if I'm wrong people in Florida. I guess right before he comes back like people who are gonna come, go to heaven like they're going to be sitting across from you like fucking absent mindedly, like picking their nose thinking about, you know what? They're going to do that evening. And then all of a sudden they're just not going to be there, but their close will be there because evidently you have to be naked to go to heaven, right? So you're close are going to be there just left behind and then everybody who's not going to have an gets left behind and then. The whole world turns into like the that island on survivor where I think there's only one person's going to win. I don't know what you can try to do to redeem yourself, but basically Jesus is coming back and this time he's not asking any questions. They'll be no miracles, no fucking seven o'clock show where he does the fish trick with the basket. No walking on water. None of that horse shit. He's coming back like, fuck and Paul Kersey right? Is that the name that fucker, Charles bronzes name and the death, which movies he's coming back to fucking kick the shit out of all the centers may. It's coming back to slap me around a little bit and then throw me into the fiery pits of hell. So they found this, Jesus freak girl and these Jesus freak people thought it would be funny to fake the rapture and make this fucking Jesus chick think that she got left behind and the fact that this girl is an adult and gets this freaked out is really. The sad state of. Of what organized religion does to somebody that somebody this old could could get freaked out by something like this is fucking beyond me and. It's tragic. Oh, speaking of that, somebody I can't find. Where it was somebody wanted me to ask me about that story where those college kids. These college kids taped this other kid, either having sex or fooling around this other college kid in turned out he was with another dude. So then the kid was so humiliated because I guess he wasn't out that he went to the George Washington Bridge and killed himself. And guess somebody wanted me to comment on that. That's obviously. Yeah, that's one of those fucking things where it's like. Even though they're adults, still kids. And I don't think that that I don't think that people understand. Even at that age, I just don't think that a lot of people understand the ramifications of what they're doing sometimes like how first of all, how fucked up it is to just film somebody, the invasion of privacy that that is. And then when you discover this about this person, just the level of humiliation that I don't know why you would do that to somebody. But. So for an unprecedented third time, the fucking batteries die. I got a bootleg bag fucking. Thing Duracell's here. Let me wrap it up here. Yeah. Yeah, as a fucking freethinking adult, I would never. I would never do something like that to somebody, but that age, you know what I had the courage guys. This is fucking wrong. Don't do that. Like I don't think I would have to be on. I hate to say that about myself, but I wasn't a strong individual back then as I think a lot of people aren't at that age, which is tragically how something like that unfolds, but what's gonna be fucked up as amount of people getting on their high horse, forgetting what you like at that age and how so much of it is trying to keep the humiliation offer you a lot of humiliation in your teen years, actually childhood right up through those years. So you finally just accept who the fuck you are, which is what that kid never got a chance to do, which is really sad thing, and then freak the fuck out and made a really bad decision. So, yeah, it's a fucking tragic. Story obviously, but I don't like how people once they are an adult and a comfortable in their own fucking skin and who they are, will then turn around and they're gonna start yelling at these fucking kids like like they, they would have been. You know, strong enough to go against the the mob, you know. It's fucked up. All right. You're dealing with kids who are technically adults, but mentally, they, they don't understand. You know, what are they thinking? Oh, this is going to be funny, you know, and then we'll have the most hits on our fucking YouTube page. Then maybe everyone will come to our house party and then we'll get laid, right. I mean, do you really think anywhere beyond that? You don't really think that, okay. This is a fucking huge secret. We just unraveled on this kid is kid has family. This kid has friends. Let's get a life. You don't think that shit you just I don't know that residual. Fucking playground shit. So I don't know, man, that's a fucking off what fuck that I bring that story up in the end was already a fucking brutal enough week. I don't know what the fuck that I go that route. All right. Let's let's fuck and get off that subject. All right. That's the podcast this week. My DVD. My DVD comes out. Comes out tomorrow, Tuesday, the fifth in stores, whatever stores still sell it and makes it great stocking stuffer, as I said for someone that you have to buy gift for, but don't particularly like, or if somebody you do like and I gotta tell you this is really totally different than the special that you saw on TV. If you've already seen it, they really took out two huge bits. And then I had other bits that we just have on their extras, and I would really appreciate it. If you if you check it out, if you buy it, that would be that would be awesome. And that's it. That's the podcast for this week. Once again, thanks to everybody who came out to see me at the Albany and everybody who came to see me out in buffalo and. That is it everybody a good week and don't be fucking videotape, and people trying to humiliate a right. And if you wear the jealousy, what we got this weekend don't fucking where the jersey or the hat of a team that kicks the shit out of another team and going to their goddamn stadium and expected. You're going to be treated even remotely human. All right. And that's it. That's fucking it. How you like that fucking jets fans fucking patriots, slowly. Coming back together. I still don't.

Thursday Afternoon Monday Morning Podcast 2-20-20

"Hey what's going on? Its Bill Burr. And it's time for the Thursday afternoon just before Friday Monday morning podcasts. And just checking in on you just seeing your weeks go and doing all Jesus. That's great I just got home and on the long fucking day work my fucking balls off work and work and work and so I'm not going to S- out Wednesday evening on my way up to fuck in Vancouver Vancouver British Columbia you know. My bruins are on a west coast trip right now. I I caught the third period of a great game against Edmonton Edmonton's. Oh let me tell you who they got a tough team but will let me tell you. They're tough team They played great despite the fact that Kassian is suspended and Connor mcdavid is hurt. So we were able to took us all the way into overtime to get two points. They got one point They're just fucking great. I really like that team. I liked that team. A lot and You know can you really say you beat the oilers? If both those players are out. I don't think you can you know what I mean? One of the best goal scorers in the league and I don't think anybody kicks somebody with the skate on better than Kassian so I mean I think we got off easy ever seen a guy kicking on the guy with the skate on. It's been a wild scene. It accidentally APP longtime ago. There was a Brunei just flanked on his fucking name. Fuck was his name. I WANNA see ended up finishing his career with San Jose. It was his freak play. He was in the front of the net and somebody cross-checked I wanNA see the Randy Burgess Steve Kasper in in the chest in hit him so hard that is his feet came up and he basically kicked. This guy can't believe I can't remember his name. Fuck was like thirty years ago. Kicked him right in the fucking mouth and the guy ended up getting a gash that when like right through his mouth was closed. So the scar was above his mouth through the lips. And then below is fucking. It was like a Freddy Kruger Slash. But it was with skates. The fuck was that guy's name. Dave read I think was the guy longtime ago longtime ago at the old Boston Garden. It's still bugging me that I had darn Gavin on and I found out at the end of the podcast that he was at the Celtics Games. You know from the very beginning. The late fifties when there was nobody there and it was. Bill Russell and Bob cousy and all that so. I'm definitely an accent. My go to Boston GonNa try to reach out to Don Gavin and get them back on and just talk fucking hoop and what it was like. He was like in the Boston Garden. I guess it was still already an old building but I think he was there when it was like when I went it was they had paint the inside like that. Bruins yellow kind of thing and then Back in the day. If you see the bobby your mother's Day goal that they had it was white the inside of it was white so I don't just all dumb shit like that. I WANNA ask him all about that that he sneak in because I was a big thing that people knew how to sneak into that venue and all of that shit anyway. Big Win for the Bruins. They've won ten of the last eleven They're just they're they're they're playing great tonight. You know like I said that was a hurt slash suspended Edmonton team but You know they pushed us around a little bit. We were pushing back. Which is good. We got to do more of that. Got To do more of that because it seems like they let that go during the During the playoffs and anyway I'm going to do some shows coming up and speaking of shows one of my favorite comics of all time and people.

Just fucking amazing comedian. Who needs to learn how to promote himself? God Damn It anyways. I love that guy. So that's it was a big fucking presidential democratic debate tonight. I didn't watch it. I watched hockey instead. I did watch a couple of eclipse and I quickly saw. Why did want to watch it because it's just people yelling at each other? I don't know what you know. Politics is always been filthy but at least they they used to listen to each other talk little bit just fucking sitting there yelling at each other then. Bloomberg said that dumb thing that everybody says you know cobby doesn't didn't work it failed. It's just like it's not the type of government all governments fail because people run them and people are pieces of Shit. That's what the problem is not socialism. It's not capitalism communism. All Forms of government would work if everybody was honest in played by the rules. But nobody does. That's what happens. That's why with every fucking country every fucking former government any type of prosperity or any of that. There's a beginning a middle an end because eventually it fucking goes away. It starts off with a great idea. You know a every man for himself or hey. Let's all work together. Whatever the fuck it is it. Does well forbid it and then what happens. Is the people get power and then they keep getting more and more power when it gets more and more corrupt more and more corrupt than either fails people rebel against it but it is not. It is not the format because people were sitting there. You go sitting there. Going Communism failed. It's like capitalism failed capitalism. Failed if you fucking look at it honestly if you fuck and sit there and look at this country and you're going to honestly say that it's fucking working. I mean we're all sitting there and not looking at the fucking twenty trillion dollars Zillion fucking dollars in debt that we are elephant in the room. We're not looking at the fuck fact that there's a private corporation prints are money and there's nothing behind it but just we're all just fucking drive in ninety three million miles an hour the left lane trying to get to our fucking brass ring before we turned into a fucking Pumpkin. That's what the fuck is going on. I think and I don't know shit but I can see that coming from fucking mile away. Yeah it's it's I don't know I don't know we just keep fucking doubling down tripling down on it so as far as I. My My My I don't know what's he trying to say. Hip built the amount of time. That I've been alive okay. What has happened to like when I was a kid like I remember like the fucking Milkman. Could have a stay at home mom. I mean wife right to watch the fuck and kids. He made enough Fuckin- money in all of that. I don't know what it just all fucking went away. People had good jobs and there was like a middle class. And you could. Just you know you weren't broke. You weren't filthy rich but you could fuck and have a house and all of that shit ain't GonNa come in come on in because we have to talk about you becoming an art dealer here in all of that is kind of fucking gone away and I know that. There's I guess. Now the way to go from being in the middle class to getting to the upper classes you gotta become a Youtube Star or something. I don't know anyways way over my head. I'm talking about different forms of government and acting like I know what I'm talking about and what's great is. This is a one person debate. So there's nobody to shout me down here. Oh God is that the energy. We're going to bring here all right. We got one microphone speaking of Communism Socialism. We're going to sit here and share it as opposed to capitalism. You'd have fucking. They have as many microphones you could possibly. Yep and they'd all look like lollipops in the fat fucks would try to eat so NIA You're into art. I'm not into art. Yes you speak into the MIC. Come over here. That's right that's correct. So what does that mean like? What what exactly. So you invest in art so when you invest in art you take your money and you say hey you see that art over there i WanNa give you this for that and then you take that thing right and you stick it on your wall okay and then you wait for the person who painted it to die as far as I can tell and then you go. Hey you know that cow just died. He's never going to scribble devil on that piece of paper anymore and I have one that he fucking drew all over. You want to buy it. 'cause the guy's dead he's never gonNA drug in. That means. This thing's worth something no I don't. I don't think that that's what you do all the time. But you invest in it. Yes and artists. How do you invest? How do you know what is the scribbles? Well I mean ideally. You'd have someone who is familiar with that world that can help guide you and sort of curate your taste and find stuff that Senator Hill. How do you plan to build your art collector name? Who would you say the top five artists are right? Now that I don't know I'm not that I'm not that smart about art. So so how exactly? Are you going to invest in this? You seem to know less about art than I do about forms of government. But you know I have someone that that can help me do all that would that be a broker neo. No how do they make their money? Nia by telling you that that scribbled dibble's worth a bunch of fucking money. Yeah they take a commission off of like so you don't know anything about you can't even name the top people who are fucking who can take a bucket of paint throw it fucking bedsheet artists out there. I don't who is a million fucking teams out there? I mean there's a million fucking hockey players the NHL can fucking touch the top players. Well I'm still learning so I couldn't tell you that right now but I can tell you what I like and when I don't make and so what point do you say. Is this worth buying. Do you think this artists has you know. I don't know it's worth investing in whatever their other absolutely do you're like the third person who's walked into girly to over here trying to clown shit. You need to understand. There's there's a three Oh snap. There's a three pronged situation. One you get a piece of art to elevate your home one secondly to secondly it's your personal enjoyment of the P. Is a piece that speaks to you. Something that looks beautiful something that resonates with you personally heard doing bill hater doing Keith. More A and thirdly you know we're setting up our child to have something so if God forbid you know something happened. Zombie shows up. She throws the art at them or she sold it beforehand and so she can get Yes that's that's it right. You know what Nia I'm no I'm not gonNA question anymore. That sounds like a solid plan. He said sarcastically. Oh are you being sarcastic shits already in the work so you can be sarcastic all day. But it's happening. That's that's not how this relationship works. It's not did you talk about this morning. They talk about this morning now because for all that I'm getting a pizza fucking were going to get a piece. I WanNa let you by the stupid scribble devil. Yeah I think so. Are you going to follow now? I I've been working a lot. You'd definitely have been so freckles. Get confused confused.

Well you know what I actually give it to my wife. I Cook a hell of a stake. She does cook a hell of a steak too but she doesn't Cook that often. So I know in the state comes out. I'm like all right have at it. I don't appreciate that shade thrown in. That wasn't necessary near you like you like what's the thing. I don't fucking do this often but when I do. What DOES THAT AD CAMPAIGN? I don't I don't always drink Seki's but when I do. I HAVE DOLE. Seconds is that are goes I don't know what is coming. Don't always drink beer but when I do is just seconds. That's right that's right your most interesting woman in the world. I don't always cook but when I do cook the shit out of this steak. She stole it from me. The skillet go and you see it on both sides. You finish it in the oven. Then you have a nice fucking garlic butter Beth steal it from you. How I do my pork chops. I never watched you do pork chops should did you took a bite. You drop the fork and that was it all right. That's fine but I'm saying the way I learn how to do. Steak was from that. That dude with the glasses outs and Brown or whatever. Okay all right is that does that contractually fucking obligate that part you. I grill cast iron broiler. How do you like to do you like it cooked what I like to do? Yes what I'd like to do to get a nice fucking skillet. Nice and Heart Syrian on both sides. Then you finish in the you know you have it in the oven and then you take the fucking thing out and then you do a little fucking you know what not on a steak. I really don't do that. Mistakes are just tastes fine after that. Put the salt on and I end the oil on both sides of the steak and then you Sierra and you put an oven you flip it and put it back in the heaven. That's how you okay. Yeah and then I take it out right and I take a big bottle of ketchup. Just dump it all over night. Stick it back in the oven. It's turnips if tenderness is the mark of excellence. Steak one cut is king. And that's filet mignon very difficult to. That's that's a difficult one because it's so fucking thick you know what I mean. You don't want overcook. You don't want to cook. And if he heats too high on that fucker right. What's GonNa Happen? Is You're going to be well done on top and in the middle is still going to be fucking chilly. Willy Abon in rib eye. That's my fav- I gotTA agree with you. I like a bona rib eye to eye. Bonin rebinding Nice bottle or two of fucking wind. That's what I like with the right on. Buckling my fucking pants. Halfway through it you know saying something inappropriate to the waitress. That's my idea of a good steak dinner all right. If tenderness is the mark of an extra state one cut is king. And that's the filet Mignon. Sure it's less modeling than a RIB. But the texture is unbeatable. Still missing the fat. There's nothing that's nothing quick wrapped in Bacon won't fix and right now butcher box gives you two fillets in a pack of Bacon free and your first box is fucking copy. Every week man and makes me hungry. All Meat is free of antibiotics and added hormones humanely and humanely race before this lauded. Each box has nine eleven pounds of meat. Which is enough for twenty four individual meals or if you go to dairy queen all the time you tubby shed. You'd probably finish that into settings right. What are you talking about me?

You know not letting the fuck and meant it's dropped to the knees. I read all right fine. What perfectly healthy eating habits. You shouldn't be ashamed of yourself at all. You know what I thought. I was aware of every issue you had with me. I didn't realize that this was another one. Can I get back to fucking butchered? Twad here but your box. Each box I can customize my box or go with one of theirs. That's what people are going to say someday about when ordering robots sex doll. I can customize my box or go with one of their. You just got the standard Twad right off the box either way. I get exactly what I want. Options like one hundred percent grass-fed and finished beef. Free Range Organic chicken. I really feel like the red headed male sex doll it I will not be a big seller and they will discontinue it and then the price of them will go through the roof.

It's the Monday morning podcast for Monday. February twentieth two thousand twelve. And you're not gonNA believe. Am I going to start off bitching about these fucking headphones again? I know what you guys are going to say you like well. Why don't you buy some new ones? Do you know what I'm going to say. I saw them once. I was at Newark Airport. What and I was like you know what I gotta do. My podcast Y-. This looks like a great place to buy headphones the airport. I'm sure they have the top of the line and they're not overpriced whatsoever. Considering I'm on the other side of security so I did I dropped like fuck and sixty seventy bucks on a pair of headphones all right. Because I'm not spending any more money. What am I fucking? Dj You know. My eminem adjusting the mixer levels here like I got something to fuck and say I'm not all right. I'm just a little mom and pop podcast and fucking store out here. Seventy dollars headphones with the tax in the FUCKING AIRPORT. Fuck over right the airport fisting. That's about right and I got him. I listened they sounded great on the airplane They had this little bullshit battery you put in. And then I CLICK. I flip a switch and then it's supposed to make everything around me a little quieter which it did which I don't get. How does that you know I got fucked up? Here's people from playing drums in that type of Shit and listening to ACDC too loud and all that crap. And I asked these people like the bose system about how to noise cancellation cancellations that award cancelling headphones and they said well. This is what we do we You know whatever frequency we send the exact opposite frequency and it cancels out both frequencies and Blah Blah Blah Blah. So they can't hear it so my thing is if I can't fuck in here it though but it's still doing the damage you know what I mean in the ear. I just I just don't notice it now because you've offset the sound so I can't hear the sound but my eardrum is still you know getting worn down by the airplane decibels. Can Anybody answer that question for me? Does that make any sense? I know you've done a little parlor trick here where now. I can't hear the noise that exists. It's not like fucking earplugs. You know what I mean. Like put earplugs in. It's actually blocking out the noise. These fucking things are like to to to to to to to the sending out the exact opposite frequency so then then I can't fuck in here but as my eardrum still going like fuck right. I prefer those spongy things that you roll up and you stick in your ears and then you don't have to clean them out for the next nine months that's always great right. Then you put them in your pocket and it gets all lint over. There's one four year ladies speaking of ladies. I want to thank everybody. For during the flowers from flow- flowers dot com and I also want to give a shout out to the people the pro flowers company because they had no problem with my read a few weeks ago. They actually just didn't like then. I said the wrong website so if you listen to two weeks ago when I did my filthy read of their copy. You'll now hear that I. I did a little insert right where it's just me talking. Yeah stick vase up your eyes of La La and just go to pro flowers dot cobb and just goes right back to me ranting again. Sow How cooler they you know. I don't know if they'll ever advertise on here again. But you know what those guys are. Cool I thought they were going to be like you know it'd be one thing. We sold drugs okay. We do we sell flowers with flowers of the exact opposite of violent. Why would you read it that way? Sorry anyways. That's what I'm letting you guys know they. If I ever meet someone who works at proflowers. I'm going to buy him a drink all right and don't even think he's just gonNA walk up to me with a little carnation your fucking lapel. And you're GonNa fool me all right. You're not gonNA have that fucking three hundred yard stare that those pro flowers people have mistake. -Able anyways dude. You should see what the fuck we bought for my dog. My dog has like separation anxiety and like when you leave the dog alone it like freaks the fuck out you know like. Oh my God. This place is too big. I don't know what I'm GONNA do. With tries to jump through the windows at closet the woodwork so You know you've heard these stories. We tried to buy cages or his trainers. Call them causes. Which is the Spanish word for home? And if you were to look at these things you know. They don't look like home. They look like a cage right so I've been put my dog them. It's a goddamn the lovely NIA everybody coming to the podcast. Let me hit pause. Here let me talk about cleal. Cleo's new two bedroom apartment. We just got her on a second. Hold on. Hold on. Hang on everybody through the magic of podcasting. She'll be on in a couple of seconds so anyways like I said the magic podcasting the lovely Nia. Everybody how are you? How are you great? I am doing well. What was that robotic? Hi How are You I am fine? I was just talking to them. About how we we clear separation anxiety. So we've gone through all these different cages. And she's a pit bull so she's broken out of all of them that she cuts upper fucking face. She chipped a couple of teeth. Drives me nuts so we finally just by one that you just can't escape from and it looks like a fuck and safe is the only way to describe it. I never I never liked it. It was evil looking. It looks like Shit like you know in those Vietnam movies when they stick the American. Gi's the little bamboo things. Yeah yes she just never really does look like a prison cell. Yeah I just didn't feel like she could stretch or anything like that. She could get up and turn around. Which is what they say is the requirements that they should be able to stand up and turn around which she could do. But it's still small. Yeah I didn't like. Yeah so we just had our trainer basically made essentially a fucking lion's cage for hurts. It's the biggest thing I've ever seen in my life. Yeah and I'm thinking. Yeah there's enough room for her bed. A whole nother section like she has like It's like when you're in New York and you go from going from a studio to actually having a one bedroom apartment. She's got the bedroom in the back. And then she's got the carpeted area in the front. There's little dog dish and some some water right little foyer for to hang up her jacket right exactly and you know what she does. She tries to break out of it again. Yeah so it had nothing to do with the damage money. I've spent on these fucking things now. No get don't cause beyond paying for reminding me of how much you spent on it. I freak out every fucking up and so now. She says she only did it that one time. She's fine she's got. It's like when we got this thing. Is You just? GotTa be practicing. He's just gotTa be in it. I wanted I wanted to be big enough. So she could ever a nice big comfy bed in there and clear basically has three stretches for yoga people. She has down dog and up dog and she has on and then she has the woman she lays on her side in all four legs straight out all right then she has the one where she stands up and does the. I'm a mad cat compression arch. Cat is back. My favorite one is when she sits down and she just puts her head to the sky. Go ooh that's my favorite one. She couldn't do that one and this one now she can do it in there and you would think we just took her from coach and put her in. First Class and she still acted like an ass because she does. This doesn't like to be confined. She doesn't like to be separate. You know how Cleo is. She's very attached to us so it's hard for her to just be away. I don't I don't she's not independent. She's dependent dog at all. I feel like he's needy killing. I feel like that father that just keeps spoiling. His daughter just keeps buying new shit. Comp- sheep's breaking everything. And no she's not going to be happy you know she'll be all right in there. I just went before I came in here. I just made her lie down in her bed and she did her little exhale and it's driving me nuts so that's fine. I wanted to talk to you about who the sound serious nano. I'm not even get into that.

He's not international. I mean I don't know I mean they love him like some somewhere. There's always the what's great about this business is they'll always be country that loves you. Yeah there always will be no matter. How big how small you want it to be huge in pry wanted to be America. All right if you're an American I guess but you know what's his face Hasselhoff huge in Germany. All Right Jerry. Lewis got his recognition in France. Much like the jazz players of your ilk right and by Ilk. I mean African American. You know what happens to me every every year during black history month? I'll ask this. This is what happens. There's always somebody some white person. It's just me and another Whitey right. And they always have to be like dude. What why why do they have like a month you know? Do we get a month. God Trona we don't get a month real even eleven mother fucker. That's right that's right. Tom Brokaw a month. Yes Oh yes. We definitely need like a month dedicated to the struggles of white people. Yeah yeah well you know what I WANNA eat on that white folks. You know what I want to organize and some shit. Maybe it'll happen for you Where the great white leaders campaigning. For All right there in the clan well tell me about some white struggles knee. I can't think of any of course you kid. Does that mean? There isn't any would want all those Irish Nice. All those Irish guys came off the boat. Let me explain to me you know. I want to talk about potato. I'll talk about the potato hearing about the suits in highschool to black people in my high school class in Atlanta Georgia. I'm GONNA kick you. Why did you move to the Whitey? Land land private because you went to a private school like walking to park and then he comes out. Yo I'm hard and shit look at my tattoos. He didn't go to private school. You went to an art school please. It's different guy. Had A two in the eighth grade and privileged did take ballet classes. He freely admits that look gets shot and can still give the camera the finger. I don't give a fuck about your background. Point about you. Know Slavery and all of those inevitably inevitably. There were some kid in class with regurgitating their grandparents and their parents. You know feeling like they're not getting enough you know. I don't know praise for White. People went through would about the potato famine a potato Sham Washington. Not the same as people being. I wasn't talking about that in the middle passage. It's not the same and I'll also point out. Sorry everybody thought this was gonNA ever said anything say well you know? I don't know if that's a completely equal Harrison also. It's not a who suffered more contests read them done. I was talking about the Irish came over around the civil war and they went to that. Little Ellis island out there. They they needed guys to fight in the Union Army. So the second they landed they say listen. You can sit here and get some venereal diseases smallpox or you can go fight for the Union army and half of them fucking signed up landed on Ellis Island signed up and then immediately was shot in the forehead by a fucking cannon down South Carolina. All right. I'm just saying everybody's got this ship. This fucked up is I was actually going to defend you and you so fucking said his sticking in the face of Whitey. Now now you've got me with my fucking backup. All right I just I just. I'm just saying it's funny because there's always somebody somebody was saying to me. This weekend I find is what can you just give them their month. I know get twenty nine days this could you just give them the fucking month you know would if they had a white entertainment television people wouldn't like that like white people really give a shit about bt. Jesus near what are you talking about? I don't know what we're trying to have fun here. Nobody nobody said that. What you're doing now is abby. Said why people are a okay in my book. You guys are great. I actually love. I get annoyed when when people get this. Two conversations white people bring up during the year that bugged me. One is wiser a black history month. Right which is the obvious. Question is if we didn't bring it up. You wouldn't necessarily out of out of being an asshole. It's just not what you focus on right. You know you're in your world. Yeah they you wouldn't think of it exactly so and then the other one is whenever the N. word subject comes up. We you guys say to each other all the time how how come so. Then we'll have. Why can't I say it and then I always go? Well why would you wanNA say was an wait? And then one time they did a documentary on that and then somebody in the documentary goes. I think white people are just mad because this is something that they can't do and that was the one where I almost took my flat screen at fucking jammed. It in the toilet flushed that whole shit. Okay as much as we don't understand black history month that whole fucking thing that oh I'm white therefore the government gives me a USA. Today in a bag of cash every morning. Yeah that ain't happening all right. That's one of those deals. I think a perfect example of white. There's a lot of white people out there eastbound and down. It's like even Eminem who is so seeped in hip hop culture and like completely accepted in hip hop culture. Because he's a great lyricist and rapper. He doesn't use the word so if Eminem is not using the word. What makes you think that like Joe? Baloney Sandwich can use that word who Joe Bologna. Jesus so anyways at once a year I have that conversation wants to fucking year. Who was somebody racist or not racist? You fucking listen then racist. They're doing what you're doing. Which is what looking out their own heads. That's what people do like. The world is from their couch all right and when it doesn't make sense to them they don't stop and go. Oh Hey wait a minute let me try and turn this around and look back at my couch. They don't fuck and do it and you know what neither do you with your little fucking rant about potatoes. I wasn't even talking about that was talking about these. You didn't know that you imagine that you fucking you're trying to flee their out of vegetables. Somebody said the funny shit about the potato famine. Hi everybody starved. Its you live on an island. Why don't you go fishing? You fucking Moron are you. What are we going to eat? I don't know have another drink. That's one of the things I never even thought of that but the thing is though it is. I mean as much as it's a fucking island I mean it's not the size of lake killings island. It's bigger than that so I guess you'd have to get on your little fucking bike. Because that's all they don't even have cars in Europe except for like the international bankers you know and then get the police escort. We going down the street. That's all you ever talked about when we go over there. You're like I want to hear that siren and it wasn't until I got to Sweden. They haven't yeah. It's so disappointing when you're in other countries and they just have the we like the regular one. Yeah my voice is a little shot from screaming. Usually do a better. Simon does that. What would you like me to do that? Come into the bedroom Shirley so anyways speaking of other things black this week Whitney Houston just out of curiosity is gonNA come out on. Dvd at any point on on like the greatest fucking funeral. The funeral is better than the grammys. It was it was pretty amazing. You really felt like you were won't because next show up and do something really weird screaming old white man. Thank God what was that about trying to out lady Gaga Lady Gaga people. Doing Weird Shit just for Weird Shit Sake. And it's not even art anymore. You Way Way Way too. They both fall off and then they have to do that. That the Duet Nikki Manashian Lady Gaga. Like when Jagger and David Bowie got together to sing dancing in the street and they were like Rhode Island Worcester South America. They started rubbing their asses together. I don't mean this in a homophobic way at all the gay thing ever I think we can all admit even gay people can admit that was extra extra fruity that that was the winning using funeral. It was it was like a real funeral. It wasn't like you know. The Michael Jackson Memorial obviously was sad and they had performers but it was more like star. Studded it was like the Kardashians all posing together holding programs and Shit. This one was like her. Dashes went to the winning the memorial. The wedding the funeral the Michael Jackson. Yeah it was. It was all kinds of celebrities. They're the highest taken in town. And then this one really felt like because they make like Michael Jackson like Laker Jersey. Like a one off Mitchell and ness was it like that. I don't know did he. Go out like Elvis winning just like completely exploited right into the fucking ground pretty much. Yeah yeah I need a cuckoo clock out of him yet Elvis Presley now when most wrongly criticized artists of all time. We'll get into that later. Any this is odds of white people stealing from black people we weren't we weren't really being right. I know Elvis was great but I feel like Oh star accepted history that he had the bullshit that he stole all that Shit from them. It's such a Crock shitting this while say it's a Crock Shit. Because he was black what he would be considered was he's he's carrying on the tradition but somebody white is into that music than what it is. Is You're stealing all right now. I'm not saying that the label didn't give those guys. You know the label. They probably didn't even pay Elvis. Forget about the fuck and artists who originally black artist. Who Originally wrote that Song? But I've been around long enough. Anini that I know that. Half those fucking people who saying that Elvis stole from them. They stole this shit from somebody else. You've listened to that fucking Music Blues Music. How many the turnarounds? Half the fuck lyrics like. Because if she won't I know her sister will. That lyric is in like fifty different song. How many of them were back door. Men I'm telling no I'm telling you and the end of the standup arena when I did that fucking circuit. There's there is some originality there but there's a lot of thievery going on so I would I would. I'm just saying Elvis is the original behind the music. He basically like he lived every fucking cliche before it was a cliche that thought he was bigger than life. And the guy's belly was full of fucking advil before they even had died on a fucking toilet. You know like for the younger than me. All right people still parade through his fucking house and have dumb conversations near his grave. There's a souvenir shop across the street. They've turned him from everything to a coup clock to a fucking SPATULA. That's personnel Yeah his fucking manager stole from him and everybody just says he's a piece of Shit. He's a fucking thief. I mean I thought he had respect for the music and he just did his thing. He liked the music. Do people think he was a piece of Shit? Other people. Michael Orlando people who bet your bottom. We'll say he's a piece of Shit like they sat down and listen to my awesome colored people down the street. They're doing this stuff I'm going to. I'm going to take any money right. You're talking about a guy who just flew around eight peanut butter and banana fucking sandwiches. Okay and came out with those stupid Batman bedazzled Gay Capes you know. Do you think he really had. It's fucking some broke kid from miss. He like he had the foresight to do all of that. Come on he got fucking raped. Declined his record behind. Yeah Yeah and then he takes the fall. He takes the fall. I'm just look I'm not saying that they didn't take that music and I'm not saying that those people didn't get fucked everybody gets fucked in the music business okay and they got stepped in. Was there. Racism Abso fucking Luke but to sit there and just literally look at Elvis like there was no talent. There is Horse. Shit all right. I always fucking people. They're black framed glasses and they'd go t's once a year trashing him and get sick always bill. Russell look-alikes have had it salt-and-pepper Afros leave the king alone. Pick up somebody else. What else. What do we got here? What did I want to talk about our job as black people to keep you down to Earth to make sure what happened all those years. It's not enough to keep reminding her of how evil you are to keep you in your place I I am. I'm an evil white man I I do. A lot of the white men share an angry white man but as a black people. No I know you're angry. It just kind of fell out of the sky. You say something actually. Somebody said something to me this weekend and I was like. I really wish Neil was here. She could hurt it and said like bill. There's been a change in. You know you seem like you let some stuff go you. I don't know you were laughing.

Jim Morrison was on this date and when I was up there half way through it realized Howie Mandel on. I'm not one hundred percent positive of this. Did this stand up special. When I was a kid. That really stuck with me. His like his interaction with the crowd and his bits and how funny he was and he was silly but he was really good at using the F. Word he was really good at cursing and like he had a couple of classic ones. Like you know. He's really manic name name. What's your name asked you three times through shit like that. And he had the one where the down that special was the one where he was wearing the suspenders and he bent over doing some bit. In on the back they came off at Lily went up in the air and landed on top of his curly hair and the whole crowd laugh and he stopped. He says wait a minute he goes. What the fuck just happened. And the place went crazy and like he was fucking destroying and I don't just years later all of a sudden you. There was one of the coolest nights I mean. That's right up there with with. GimMe Carnegie was Carnegie with that one. Was I love that Shit? Just like onto an old Sports Stadium you know what I mean. That's where the red sox choked you know. All the old stadium was with a red sock showcase all the new ones better except for last year with their fucking chicken and beer. Goddamn you could've played for the red sox. Last year in September he'll get hammered eating chicken wings and Shit not being racist analysis black history month. I didn't really mean it that way. Well anytime you bring up chicken around a black person like it gets so fucking weird like we'd all don't eat it. I don't get that. We went to frank pep as pizza. Was Frank Pepe fucking insane so it really is. Because you've got going on and on about this place supposed to be the best best. What I earn America America and they really lived up to the hype. Okay it was insane in one of the ones that we got was just one that had clammed Clermont. Yeah which I would have thought was disgusting. When the signature wants it was fucking delicious. Next time I go there I would definitely get their classic playing like they don't have a sauce. They fly in like an organic Tomatoes from Italy and they just crush it on the top of it and put it near. It's insane it's the thinnest goddamn crust. Then there's another place down the street. And that's the one that allegedly Sinatra used to order from so. I don't know so it was sick. It was like this little strip in new haven called Frank. Pep AS P P APOSTROPHE S. If you're ever driving down in New York or just live anywhere near there you gotta check it out. I would definitely suggest go in there like we did on a Wednesday afternoon or Thursday afternoon. Because there's nobody there because on the weekends it looks like Bon. Jovi's playing there in Jersey. Speaking of which. I gotta get to some sort of advertising here I was called you CLEO.

I fly a lot and I. I did that one time when I flew to Australia. I played Tetris for eight hours straight and I was just having time of my life because I hadn't seen this is one like those old school games first started coming back and I was like it. Just took me back to the arcade when you go down there and your parents didn't want you to hang down at the arcade because that's where the riffraff at least in my little white town. That's where they were at and Yeah bullying kids records. Yes so if you guys you know if you stumble onto one just know that. The last one that I played was grand theft auto part. Three and I don't what are you looking at nothing? But why are you turn on my phone over there and just because I was? You were talking. We were talking about games and I wanted to download a free game obsessed with right now that you will love. How did you get a pass on your iphone? I need to just put it in there. Okay I mean. I didn't even watching at a buddy's house. I was watching the Knicks game yesterday. And he's like you should have your phone locked in case you lose it than someone can't call it and I was like all right but now it's like a pain in the ass because I sat down for two seconds because I haven't on immediately immediately so when we get off the air I gotta give you my Pasco car because I just realized what if I do a face plant and you don't have your cell phone you launch. Honey can you hear me? What is your pass code numbers also? We have a new advertising for this week and I cannot say enough about this product for hockey players out there. You know what? It's really fucking rude that you're playing with my phone is. I'm trying to whore myself out. Here it's really fucking distracting. Doing your thing I just do it quietly over okay. All right go hunting exam phone. You love this product so please yes As as you know I took a plane hockey in the wonderful month of August in two thousand ten. I got all this stuff out there. Right fall down. I feel like I'm landing on. I got all the equipment so when I fall down the ice it feels like I'm landed on a mattress phenomenal. When I first started playing head was the helmet and the gloves and you know you remember that like three days later I would wake up and I looked like somebody beat me with a bamboo read. Okay I think those those bruises. Somebody hit me with stickers. Yes yes but but the only thing that sucks since then is the only thing that hurts nothing. Worse than taking a puck off. Your Skate fucking kills. I can't even did indescribable pain. It's like stubbing your toe. Times nine thousand right and they actually said if you take a slapshot and one hundred miles an hour to Ford. It's like getting shot in the foot with a twenty two caliber. Yeah so it's always like why isn't there any sort of protection down there well? Somebody's finally done skate. Fender DOT COM. They actually sent me a pair of these things. They're these little plastic arts. They're clear plastic. You put them on one thousand nine hundred thirty. Nhl Teams already have players wearing them and actually tried him the other day. Because I was concerned like I'm already slow enough. I don't need to be adding weight to my feet. You can't even tell their on. They they way as much as socks she can't even tell And if you get hit with the with the Puck I swear to God it feels like get hit the Shin. I mean it's like you know you got hip it you barely feel it and you can keep playing and So anyways all the NHL guys are starting to wear them. I'm telling you this company's going to blow up if I can invest in it I would 'cause I this is one of the ones either Nike or Reebok is going to buy it out because it's brilliant like I was saying eleven percent of all injuries in hockey or foot related. So you're taking that off the table. I mean think about that. Like for most of us are. Nhl Dream is over and you get a real job. I don't know about you guys but I don't need to take one to the foot and the next night go limp and out on stage with one loafer and a clown shoe on you know what I mean. It makes no sense. Put Him on. Go Be the first guy to have them out there and you watch because everyone's GonNa be like what are you a right. And then they're gonNA take one of the foot and they're gonNA be crawling off the ice and you're gonNA take one. You're going to keep going all right. And then eventually they're all going to be wearing. I mean you'd be like dude. I called it. What did I say so this is what you do you go to skate. Fender DOT COM. They got two different. They got the they got one sixty nine one thousand nine and they got one seventy nine nine thousand nine definitely spend the extra ten bucks. It's totally worth it. I know you're like Oh that's kind of a lot of money. Can you put a price on your foot you know? Do you want to be that old person? Hobbling down the street with that little metal cage that those people walk with supply hockey can up by property. You WanNa do if you still want to be able to cross. Check somebody with your Goddamn Cain when you're in your nineties. I recommend these things. And that's all you do you skate. Fender DOT COM and click on. This is that you want and when you get to the page where it says apply coupon you just type in my name Bill. Burr no spaces all lower case. B I L L B U R R and. That's IT IN ORDER THEM UP. And that's it you know. I guarantee anybody's ever taken a puck to the foot is GONNA is GonNa wear them unless a macho moron in take one more hit and they'll be all right. You know what I think. I'm GonNa wear those all right. Let's get back to the comedy what I WanNa talk about. Oh here's something to bought any. Acdc fans out there. This is gonNA sound like a back to back commercial. But this isn't Mark Evans the original Bass player for AC DC. I've been listening to people you were about two years old and I always wondered like what happened. The first guy that's always been like the first bass player and that's always been like my question. Whenever I watched behind the music you see some huge band and it'll just be like you know look terrorist had a baby and decided to quit the band you know. And that's when Jimmy page joint and I always used to think what the fuck ever happened that other guy and actually wrote a movie script about it and I couldn't make it funny enough and then years later that dude with the part down. The middle did a movie that was essentially what. I was trying to write. I you still with me on the PODCAST. You reading the books anyway. Mark Evans what Mark Evans the original Bass player for for. Acdc wrote a book called dirty. Deeds it's already in paperback. I know it's been out probably since the beginning of last year tearing through this book it's a whole new perspective on the band and it's also like as he's really honest and he kinda shows like there's a couple. I don't WanNa ruin the book with a couple of things. He writes he goes. Yeah no no two people who are in bands. I'll just say one thing that he said if you have a bad show and you're having the band meeting right after this show a good thing. Don't be the first guy in the band to leave because the finger pointing going to start. And if you're out there to defend yourself it's GonNa it's GonNa come onto you but like he has a couple chapters in their NIA. If I can just get you to look at me at this point that Bon Scott bronchoscope room. Yeah what I love about that. That's the exact same. Sorta dirtbag Shit that you do on facebook in my space. But it didn't exist back then so you actually had to sit down and write a letter. He's like send me a photo. One of those polaroid cameras polaroid friend. They can't wait for the mckean pay per preferably less. Wait for the three three minute kiss. Then how about a three hour fuck right? They have. That doesn't sell the book it's called. It's called dirty deeds. And if somebody knows Mark Evans if I ever go a Melbourne and wherever the hell he's living at I gotta I GOTTA. I got some free tickets for him without a doubt. I was put that out there. I put put it out there for Rick Flair. I'm one of these times. One of these legends is going to show up. But I'm all the way up to the chapter where he's about ready to get fired and I actually read a little bit of it and it's absolutely like you just like these guys are like really describes like the power of ACDC when he talks about like they used to start their set with that song livewire in how like he would just be playing the baseline and then Malcolm would start playing the guitar. And then when Phil and Angus kicked in like they would just blow the roof place in front of like like twenty people and when you really into a band like that's the big thing like Oh my God. I wish I saw them. Before they hit and he describes that period in the book like from a guy being like as far as I know Angus Malcolm none of them have ever read a book written a book so to finally hear a guy talk about. What is it? Like when you're when you're in that band and it just fucking lifts off like that? He said like their record label guy when he first saw when they went to London when when Angus and Phil Rudd kicked in during that song like his fucking jaw was on the ground. Like Oh my God this is going to be. These guys are GonNa be fucking huge and I remember talking to somebody who worked for Aerosmith and when. Acdc opened up from like Joe. Perry was going nuts watching him and he was hitting Stephen. Go Watch because actually the second or third and he's GonNa do you call it the frying the Bacon thing we saw. He said he lays on the ground. With what kills. He doesn't miss a note. And like I guess Joe Perry was like freaking out and was just saying these guys are GonNa be fucking huge and they got that new. Dvd out that. I've been talking about that. Jim Breuer was telling me about going and I was like yeah. I'M GONNA WATCH JIM goes. No you have to come over my fucking house surround sound and you have to sit there in the dark and you have to watch. This shit's so great. Yeah he's a he's got a new he's got a new ninety minutes. Set does not curse once in other hills as hard as he's ever killed. Yeah like I can't even describe key when we were on the Antisocial Network tour together lash last year it was really. It was really inspiring. I mean I'm always gonNA stick to my filthy guns. It's just who I am but I have unbelievable amount of respect for the fact that he that he's doing that 'cause I'm like that guy is he's going to have that. This second wave of Jim brewers the shit on top of the original waves. And He. He's GonNa he's GonNa go to a whole `nother You can go to Buffalo Sabres game. And they're going to be. Also you know high hyping. The upcoming Jim Breuer show. That's my prediction. All right and with that. Let's get to the letters for this week last week. I was bitching about Valentine's Day. You know I always tease you about how we go out to celebrate our relationship except I pay by the way. How how. How much was it going out? On the twelfth. It was great it was nice quiet. Yup Romantic there was none of the hype. We went a really nice place. Goliath wasn't actually cheap. But I I can't imagine what that would have thought we would have been standing outside glitter dress looking at the other girls and their glitter dresses going to you like glitter drives her. I should have got mine in. Poofy shoo shoo colors so anyways. So I've been bitching about the ladies on this thing right. Like what are you guys do? And they're talking about this stake in a blowjob day. Yes yes yes all right now I. I'll tell you when you're in heaven when not only can they can't say when when they're when they're proficient in both of those categories because there's a lot of people out there they're going to say all right stake in a blowjob day and one of them is going to be up to snuff and there is. There is a prevailing attitude amongst women that they are just automatically good in bed because they're there and there's the prevailing attitude that men don't know what's going on we don't know what's going where anything is just happy to be. It's a privilege which is why this lady says the Valentine's Day this is from a lady she said. Hey Bill I heard what you were saying about Women Valentine's Day and I we don't buy our men gifts and we expect a whole day to be about us. Well here's what I did for my husband by the way honestly not trying to sell you. Anything he goes she goes. I bought him the Liberator Wedge Ramp Combo set. What's that you might ask about this from the Anthonys show they refer to it as a bedroom as bedroom adventure gear? It's a set of cushions designed to help you achieve more positions sex as well as deeper penetration so no we didn't go out to dinner. No stupid cards were exchanged. We simply stayed home and fucked all night saying shock on that you do. I love you bill. Go Fuck yourself this Cara. Yeah but you know what's funny about that s? She's patting himself on the back. She bought something for herself. It's for both of the No. It isn't what do you mean it isn't it isn't going to do with it without him. I don't need deeper penetration. That's for you that is wealthy again. That's that's the difference. What is the difference? She know the. I'm not saying that that guys don't satisfy their women properly. That Dick isn't big enough. I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about how she's Pat yourself on the back like she went out and bought this guy the NFL package for next season like she actually went out and bought something for him. She didn't at the very least she bought something for them. But the real thing about that. That's for the woman so he can headed at that angle that you liked so he can hit you spot so he can get in there. Deeper got guys. You don't appreciate that. I'm not saying I don't appreciate it and I'm not saying it's not a great invention but what I'm saying is she's acting as though like this was some sort of a sacrifice that she basically bought him something that would get her better. Dick and she's patting herself on the back for fucking ridiculous. I think it's clever. It is clever because she's acting as though she did something but she didn't see this is this is the thing about that. Is the genius of women. Is You guys act? Like sex. Doesn't feel good for you to you. Act like guys allowing us to have sex with you like you don't want it and like this. It's like you like waxing a floor and it's just a big fucking pain in the ass you know. She got something that that is like celebratory of their relationship as opposed to like the typical dinner. It's like it's about our intimacy. It's about our connection. So why don't we get something that will enhance that? Yeah but this is the thing I gotta go out and buy. You'd like some necklace. How do I get to wear it? I gotTa take you out to dinner celebrate and I pay for the whole fucking thing. It's all about the guy going out spending money on you getting you shit that you want. And that's the pressures for the guy to show his love. Also get to. You Know White Guy who can dunk a basketball all right. Let's stop talking about the exceptions. I'm talking about the fucking rule here right okay. You know what I'm saying. Yes I do okay all right all right fine there we go the tap and out can tap it out. Why why? Why Do Women Act like sex? Doesn't feel good. Why what did you guys talk into the MIC farm? Not like that so I don't know I couldn't tell you you don't have any insight. I can't keep this going all right. Let's keep going. I don't really know women that are like Oh God it's such a chore like maybe in the next year and I was making. It'll be complaining about that. I don't know but when I was making fun of Valentine's Day this weekend some girl in the crowd was going like you know what I said. What did you do for it? And she goes she. He got to hit this in points. Turn that's ridiculous. Yeah what can I show up and be like? Hey you get two sub this lady never this this is you never you never get to do that right. I don't know what it is playing out. This is what it is if guys could ever stop being such fucking sluts and giving it a well. That's why women women don't respect Dick is because it's so easy for them to get it if you'd stop giving it away if every guy would just start the day in fucking rub one out right. World would be a lot more peaceful at least until two in the afternoon by. Then you balls fill up again. Start getting competitive cubicle. Bigger than mine. I mean what I'm saying. It's just it's it's just one of those things that balances it out right. I can choke slam you on the floor and you could cut off the sex and that balances up but it's illegal for me to hit you but for some reason it's not illegal to cut off the sex and that right there is what's known as the tipping point. That's how you lose your beautiful Jake's slap non relationship advice okay bill. I need your help. I've been making. How do you say that looks like Satan to Chinese American dish? Say Ten. Thanks to you know say that looks like Bonjour Bonne? Jor say ton I thought they say ten Vegan dishes from scratch for sometime now. It's called for Soy Flower. But I think that I might have an allergy to soy. I've been substituting chick PEA flour for awhile but the consistency is a little off. Any help would be great. Yeah why don't you just go with regular white flour that your body can't process nothing? Takes better than fucking real sugar white flour you know. Don't drink diet soda. Just drink less. Wait a minute first of all. This is more like a like a as a chef. Person could help them out with this. That's what's funny about this near you. Just totally I'm not a chef. I should probably tell them what to do with it. And I was on my way to say mood. Sorolla sticks here and you're like wait a minute but you don't know anything about this. Sorry help would be greatly appreciated. Lazy Gentlemen once again once again a female showing their comedy instincts. All Fuck Yo. I know it's a big tragedy too big tragedy. Hope people view women in comedy. And it's all guys fault. It has nothing to do with the thousands of horrific sets. Leave it alone come on near look? It doesn't look at empathy. Sometimes empathy helps sometimes. It doesn't help. I'm just talking about stand up and I think there's a bunch of hilarious people out there. Chelsea Peretti is one of my favorites. H Chelsea hilarious Chelsea Peretti one of my favorite bits last five years when she said she was she was a fat Guy Comedian. I asked her about about the other day. Said they edited out of her special which sucks. Because that's what editors do like. What makes this awesome remove it? I'm just saying if somebody said white guys can't dance. Am I really going to get mad at that time? I really not going to honestly look at myself and admit that I'm part of the problem then. I'm not one of those people you know if I ever wanted to become a better dancer. Just let that roll around your head without laughing right ever wanted to be a better dancer. Near what would what would make me a better dancer to go out and fuck and learn how to do it and do the work or for them to lower the fucking standards. Yeah yeah lower the standards of whole yourself up by your fucking bootstraps Reagan. Bring it on. No I'm not saying that they don't get fucked and that there's not it's not unfair but like whole straight across the board thing where people think that they're ready to be on shit that they're not ready to like really. You'RE THE NEXT ONE IN LINE. You know all right. Whatever from Argentina now. The one from Argentina Argentine is a great is a great country men. What this is. What happens when people right in a second language? But I can't get shit here. You will find the reason why the crowd was so incredible facing a link. The reason is that Argentinians in general are soccer fans but insanely fan not funny. I don't know I can't even read this register redesign an accent soccer fan. Sex Desire or performance is directly proportionate to their correspondent team performance league. Also if your team loses you don't even WanNa fuck or do you hate. Fuck your woman and blame the loss on her. It's crazy but it's true. In the video you will see the entrance of the team to the field. Each Sunday majority the majority of the Argentinian teams. Have an entrance like that because people are fucked up in an. I can't even read this podcast. You mentioned where you find a good steak steak spelt like I WANNA kill Fuckin- vampire here in Argentina. We have the best meat in the world. It's insane the quality. I've had the possibility to travel to many countries and I've never taste better. Meet than here is like the cheese for the French or the tacos for the Mexicans. I guess that you imagine art Argentina like if we live in the sand hunting for food like National Geographic. No I don't you can't now. I don't see that works both ways. They always say Americans are ignorant. You know what I mean you guys are your whole fucking idea of us is ignorant is ignorant of us like first of all like you guys are fucking brilliant like I'm going to go down to Argentina and everybody's going to be looking through a telescope and is going to be proficient in like calculus. Give me a fucking break. You just like me all right. You're trying to get a sandwich trying to get laid. You want the fuck. I'm doing all right. I'm done reading this. I get it you guys are fucking awesome fans and I would like to go down there. I would like to learn your language and I would like to have you fucking Kobe beef. Okay they do those those Argentinian restaurants other ones over they keep bringing racks and racks and racks of meat. Yeah I don't like Shut Char. I don't know what the word I first of all I ever feel worthy of eating like that like I just conquered some cash like you're a king. Yeah Yeah I don't like that's one of those things they bring around all the meat and it's just like you know. Bobbie used to go up to that one right up the street. Yeah and they absolutely loved it. I've never been any of those restaurants. Yeah I was never into that That style why I don't know I would just rather just have like the one steak. Yeah I eat too much when I go there. The guy comes up. It's like the three musketeers. And they come up roast beef ham and fucking something else. I will have all of that. Bring on the winches. All right blasted a girl in the face and self defense need advice all right. Well let's see if this was self defense G. O. J. J. J. We go. Hey Bill I need your help. Punch my best punch people. Can you proof? Read Your Shit. Hey Bill I need your help punch. Best Friend's girl. I have passed six months. Is this another guy from Argentina? This better be a second fucking language. People are you. I've actually found someone dumber than I am. I have passed six months for the past six months. I've lived with my three best friends until one of them decided to move move their girlfriend who was used to. Mommy and Daddy. Who's used to Mommy Daddy? Buying her ship in with us. All right Syria an attitude towards earth. That isn't good at first. I was okay with it because it was less money. Okay so basically. He's living in this flat and one of the guys brought the girl in the first. He didn't mind because it was. It was cheaper but after two weeks. She showed a true color. She acted like a bitch that traded periods with blue whale. This is definitely a second language from Borat. She complains that the food we bought was too cheap or the Living Room. Furniture was too cheap and tacky looking That was not the worst her and her best friend argued nonstop from morning tonight or would have allowed drunk makeup sex. That's her in the boyfriend The most horrible thing she would do was if one of her roommates would tell her about herself. She would tell or best friend in that hotel or something about what? The fuck is with these emails this week anyways. So this girl's annoying him he puts up with until the Super Bowl night. My condolences by the way. Thank you go. Fuck yourself if you not serious every everyone had left the place because there was a campus party and I did not want to go This is the problem happened about a half. `Bout at halftime show. The girlfriend walks in Shit House with above four for France. This is an American rightness. I stand corrected. We are stupid. They sit in the den with me being loud as shit. Then they all start singing along to Madonna during the halftime show. I just WANNA take a bottle jammed in my years. Just before the second half is start I inform them that I want that if they want to stay the after. Shut the fuck up. The girl makes a racial comment Towards you I'm assuming I call her a whoring count next thing I know she is on punching me. I push her off but she sinks her Mr Ed Teeth in my fucking arm and won't let go so I had no choice but to blaster in the face. Her friends pick her up and carry two or to a room and she's knocked out cold guy really you got you got all of that did you. Did you push your way with the forearm that she had the teeth in and then bring her immediately back to your body as you drew your fist back. And why is that how it went down because that's Ticor does if she's biting you I'm anyways. Well I rush to the ER to get eight stitches in my arms. Jesus Christ that's amazing to be able to do that with human teeth. See this yeah. This is brutal flash forward two weeks. Nobody in the House will talk to me then when I get off work. Everybody's sitting Living Room with college counseling intervention style. They tell me. My girlfriend is scared for her life. And I need to go to anger management or I have to move. I look at my friends who know me all my life that I would never hit anybody even a woman unless I had to disbelief so bill should I go to anger management to appease them or just ignore her. Because I'm sure as hell moving out of the house. Thanks just move out to just move up. It's it's it's not. It's not worth it and chances. Are Everybody all the other roommates. Now this girl's a psycho too. But she's such a psycho that they're afraid to say look what somebody's biting you to the point that you have to get stitches. I mean what are you supposed to do now? They'd hearts? We stopped talking through. Women's should not Hitman. Because it's not it's not a fair to them if they hit you back to get upset. You shouldn't you shouldn't be doing that. This is by the way this is all everything he said was true. Did say something racial. Yeah so if everything you're saying is true I would just I would just move out. Yeah just just get away. It's a it's a bad situation. Walkaway be glad that she didn't fucking call the COPS. You always got to get the last. It could have been worse. Just just move out. Move out quietly. Don't have any contact with that guy and his girlfriend anymore. Don't hang out with them if they're going to be if everyone's hanging out and they're going to be there. Don't go just don't whether you annoy me with this. You know to know this is if it went down the way this guy said it went down. This girl got what she deserved. And someone like this. The last thing they can never handle in life is when they get something that deserve Sir Right now. So what she has to do is she has to get another the final blow. You know. I'm GonNa get you in trouble. I'm GonNa tell on you. I'm GonNa Anger Management and you don't have to go through the pain in the ass of having to move and then she's going to sit there all county as he moves out like doing that shit and it's making me.

Hey Bill that's East Coast Oak? That's why people bitch with podcast. I need some advice on what to do about the guy. This guy lives in a few houses down from me. I'm a third year college student and I live at home. My parents moved to go live in the state above mine. You mean north and I currently reside alone while they are trying to sell the house a few months ago I was driving home coming back from Jim and while I was driving in my neighborhood I saw this guy step in the middle of the road about twenty yards from my car. He was yelling at me but I couldn't hear what he was saying. I slowed down. Stopped my car right in front of him and he came to my window and told me to get out. I was totally confused and thought I'd run over. I ran over his cat or something. Also I think just moved in because I never seen the dude in my life so I roll down the window or Nasr. What did you say he goes? I'm going to kick your fucking ask it out of the car guys probably in his forties and has to be around five ten. That is this me. Fifty pounds us not me. I'm twenty one. Six three two hundred I do cross fit and I wrestle occasionally at another gym I go to so I get out of the car and I'm standing there trying to figure out what the Hell is going on. The Guy starts moving towards me so I take the initiative and take a step towards him. We ended up being an inch from each other. And he's trying to do some Alpha male ship by just staring at me but I have the height advantage so I'm looking down at him. At least ten seconds go by before the guy goes. How fast do you? You were going back there. I Say I duNno probably around thirty the speed limit. My neighborhood is twenty and I know I wasn't going that much over. Then he goes. I'M NOT GONNA have my children playing in the yard if I know assholes like you are driving like that in the neighborhood after. He said that I saw his wife and son were a little off to the side of the road. Once the word asshole left his mouth. I was fucking pissed. I wanted to just tackle the Dick and put him to sleep in front of his and kid to teach them a lesson what I proceed out and just apologize to him and said that I was really sully. Sorry and it wouldn't happen again. The guy then gives me a fucking little SMIRK and turns around and says while walking away with his back turned it better. Not or you know what will happen. yeah yeah. He definitely should've kicked his ass kicked his ass. Yeah what do you realize? What a good do you realize what this kid did. He such a fucking gentleman. He could've kicked a fucking shit on this guy. He saw his wife and Kid. There would have been emasculating. Dad Is Superman. He sits there. It's that little smark. Yeah that fucking smart. I bet that constables from work. Yeah Betty sorry. That's the first time I had to walk away. You fucking count. Yeah he should've kicked that guy's ass but it's a good. I know that you didn't do it. But because this is the person as they say but he definitely has a common rights that Shit I wanted to explode I mean the guy totally disrespect me so I get in my car and drive off and the story wrong. I couldn't get this fucking guy out of my head. I I can't get out of my head. I'm GonNa Actually fantasize that I was there and he did that what I would WANNA do. I've already fucking do. I wait till he was alone. Don't do this shit. Don't do this but I know what you just WanNa get. Get The guy alone and be like. Hey what are you gonNA do? Now what are you GonNa do now? Just get right in his fuck and grill an avid backed down. Or I almost to say guy. Say listen man just call them over to the car and just say listen. I just wanted you to know the other day that I wanted to. I could have fucking stuffed you in my trunk tied you up like a fucking pressel and ass rate you in front of your fucking wife but I chose not to okay. Because I didn't want your son to know what a little fucking against say it. Let's see he has for. That wouldn't have been homophobic either. I wouldn't be me talking about gay people at such a fucking pussy move. Yeah and if for some reason but but I'm putting no then that's what you say. Maybe do like Columbo to say listen. I gotta ask you something. 'cause I'm six foot three I cross fit I wrestle. Okay and just looking at you. I know I could tie into a pretzel. I know it could do it if I wanted to. Put the confidence you had. I just want to know what is your background. You know because you know. I'm a real competitive guy you know. If you've got some sort of martial arts training you know I would love to. Have you come down to the gym sometime when you wife and kid aren't there so I don't have to feel guilty when I you up close both your is this one and his friend over here say I read it? I know because what's happening now. This is what happens when you do the right thing in life. Okay when you know. He eats away. You HAVE TO MAKE PEACE. You have to make peace and you and you gotTa tell yourself the live at someday. This guy's GonNa get his and you know what he doesn't guys like this don't get. There's that's mark. This kicked kid really painted a fucking picture. I can just driving me nuts. He Goes. I couldn't get this guy in my head a week went by and I was still thinking about that astle too. I would think about this twenty years from now two weeks later I was driving home from school and I see the guy rolling his garbage can out to the curb. I slow down to fucking under twenty and I know this because I looked at my top speedometer. I pretend to stare the guy down so I look at him and he looks at me and Yell slowed out. Wow now when he said that I am fucking raging. I wanted to stop my car and do some ground and pound on his face. Yeah this kid knows what he's doing. This isn't wrestling with kids doing shit but did I know I just drove off the next day. I talked to my friend about it about what had happened. And he said that this guy said the same shit to him if he said he would put him on his ass I know. Do you know what I would have done. He told me that if he says he's GonNa kick your ass than that's a threat so you can defend yourself. Don't listen to you dumb friend. He saying you get arrested so a few months pass and I'm still thinking about this asshole. Every time I drive by his house fast forward to yesterday and I'm I'm biking in my neighborhood. Let's do an Ihop and I hear a honk from behind me so I pull my bike over to the side of the road and it's none other than the same dude in his Ford. F One fifty driving along a looks at me and gives me the middle fucking finger. Wow now granted. I was in the middle of the road and didn't hear the guy coming because I was listening to music but still the middle finger so I bike home. Take a shower and try to convince myself to walk over to house and confront him but after a couple minutes of pacing. I just decided to wait it out until the ASTLE does one more thing. I mean I don't WanNa get arrested so my question is what the hell should I do? I mean every time I drive by this guy's house now I want fucking veer off the road and ran my current to middle of his living room. Any advice would be good. All of my friends think I should go over there but I want a second opinion you can't do anything to this guy unless he puts his hands on unless he puts his hands on ulysses. Just one of these things but you can do to him. What he's doing to you. This guy has an insane temper so You know I'm not advocating legally so you don't do this but like I don't know what next time you know if you see him out in the yard or something. This is what you do. I have a great idea. Do you have any friends who are really good mechanically Why don't you take credit card out? Go down to the fucking auto store or go online and buy like one of those fucking train horns and have it installed in your car and next time you drive down the street just be sort of zigzagging down the street just to get this guy to be fucking you know getting all like fucking the second you start screaming you lay on. That fucking Horn is loud as humanly possible in your blow out his eardrums. That's what would but then again then known Douche like this he would say that I have permanent hearing damage. You know what I think he should do. Maybe because I'm a female and I'm all about cycle revenge warfare. Which should you what should you do? I think when the husband is not home. I don't know how if he knows the schedule. Whatever he needs to go over there when the wife is at home and be like listen. You know I'm so sorry about the time I was speeding. I really you know but your your husband seems really upset. I'm really not trying to be like that. I would never do anything like that and women I oh no no no because she knows her husband is a psycho she could turn it around and be like yeah. You should do that either but I have a feeling. She's not like that and he can just go over and just make nice and be like the sweet kid. That's helping out at the French. And then but then I feel like maybe that would fuck with the husband. And he's like sitting there sipping tea with the wife and Oh look who came ought just wanted to apologize in person you know. I don't know who is the wife. They no no no he should fuck. You should fuck play with his kid in the backyard like the toss a football around him be more than happy to just start giving them the finger. Listen this is all you gotta do is just give him the finger give them the finger right back because this guy thinks you're a bitch right now so all you gotta do is just yell back to say you know. Just give them the finger yell back at him when he's in the driveway. I would like swerve at him. And then swerved back just fuck with the guy. He's just do that once because the next time. You might have like a video camera but I I just don't want any I don't get any you know. What if I was in that situation? You know what I would do. Yeah name morning quarterback look. I was in that situation with that. Other guy right at the last place we lived and I didn't fuck with him because he was an old guy. I just didn't fuck with them and find out he has dementia and Shit so I'm site. I never yelled at the guy you know what you do now would really diffuses angry guys like that are makes them. Even more angry is just laugh at them. Just keep laughing at them. Laugh Adam give them the finger and just keep calling them tough guy right tough guy anything anything you just keep calling them anything that is remotely all right there. Chuck Norris anyone say to this guy that will bait him into hitting you? This is a really fucked. This is a great question and I don't want to get in trouble if some shit coast so. You shouldn't do anything sir. Wink Wink Wink. This guy's such a Dick I I know I always say you know fucking with. Somebody's car is like a pussy. Move with this guy's such a Dick and he has such a own. My God dude. How many times? You've thought about throats just choke slamming. That guy ran into the hood of your car. Repeatedly his wife and son on Benji like apprentice on asks rape here. Nobody if you just said it really calmly you said a comedy was sort of a smile on your face. You come off like fucking maniac. Yeah that's true. If you scream at somebody you just sound like you're quoting Cogan or something right. Let me tell you something brother come into Saturday. I'm going to ask you All right overrated underrated underrated female friends. I just broke up with my with my lady my girlfriend. She was a great woman but she didn't live in my city and there was some other issues and it was not the right fit even though I was completely honest and open this girl once I knew it was over. I broke up with her the nicest way I could. Nevertheless it's hard to walk away from an otherwise great girlfriend. I totally felt guilty about it. When I mentioned this. Some of my guy friends they were like. Oh Cy abro bomber. Let's go get drinks. Which was Nice in? Its own way but women with in my life immediately looked in on me and showered me with the degree of validation support and encouragement without ever questioning my decision. Yeah I would think at one of them would at least give you a handy. I was their friend so whatever I did was right and I was automatically an awesome person. It was a little orientation because I felt like they were. They weren't really looking at any of the circumstances of the logic behind my decision but it felt really good while that guy just generally likes the company females. I thought it was GONNA come around. And then they felt bad for me and one of them blew me. You need female friends man all right overrated female friends. I I don't know what it is about females that that they are programmed to behave in a way that that grants their friends blanket validations without question or hesitation scarlet loyalty. But come on you guys. You guys have loyalty in certain areas. Come on but why. Well I know a lot of women who say. I don't have any female friends. I can't hang out with women that you petty and Blah Blah Blah but. I don't know any guys who go. I don't have any guy friends. I find them to petty the childish. Yada Yada Yada. I know guys that are like that. They don't they prefer hanging out with girls because they WANNA fuck him no because they like talking about stuff and whatever and like doing activities just WanNa you know I. I've I've heard this from straight man. Who Do you know like that? I know a straight guy like that like all. His friends are chicks and they kind of do that whole blanket. Oh everything you do is awesome. I can't believe that person broke up with you so sad. Let me take care of you. Oh He's a Momma's boy. I talked about a guy guys. Say He's a guy's guy. Oh we isn't no. I would say that he is guys guys. Don't just hang out with women. They maybe he's on a guy's guy he's definitely like a masculine guy. You wouldn't take him for. I'm not saying he's gay. I'm just saying he's like a mama's boy grew up around. Women may be probably doesn't like wouldn't probably doesn't like ball breaking probably finds that childish. Yes actually exactly okay. He's not good at it always loses and then he gets he gets mad and his ears turn red and everybody makes fun of them on the playground. Let me go hang out with you. Know all these women who replaced my mommy. Let me guess does he? Liked to cook too But if this is what I know this guy all right but if this is what their support network looks like. I'm getting back to this thing it. All of a sudden made a lot more sense to me that this is how girls rationalized and perpetuate horrific decisions that make no rational sense. Find a nickel for every time. I was a victim of chick logic. I would have a huge goddamn pile of Nichols on the other hand. I would make a lot more terrible decisions to if every time I made one of my group of if every time I made one everyone in my group of friends validated me. Thank you to my guy friends for calling me out on my bullshit. So let's say as a guy sees He sees both sides lead with sympathy rather than well. What what was your part in this whole thing? We've definitely don't you end with with Shit? Talk Talk when they leave the room. Hey I realize I have a couple more reads. I have to Amazon. Dot Com has been a great thing.

HOUR 3- Michael Thompson Sep 25, 2020

"We can't make progress because too many of our countries rules and institutions were designed to exclude black people. We need real change. It's time to eliminate the Filibuster Makdissi Estate seriously fixed the Supreme Court and Abolish the Electoral College. We must go in November, but we need a pen of action. Now it's time to finally bill a true equal and just democracy. Paid for by just democracy zai-qing What's going on I? Know it's been a while since you may have been out of the house living life like you used to. But you know what? There is the open road that still is out there and you should probably reintroduce yourself to in a Mazda I was lucky enough to drive around in a nine the last couple of months. And I have to say the C. UV Lineup Mazda is pretty wonderful. These vehicles are masterfully crafted. They have elevated design that's reflected in every detail from the controller knobs to the steering wheel. It's all there. So if you want more information on the Mazi lineup including the first ever see thirty goat Amasi USA dot com slash iheart, and don't forget to explore their strongest finance options. You are listening to the Dan Patrick Show on Fox sports radio. A lot of reaction from yesterday Kevin Harlan from CBS they're great announcer was on I had fritzy do his Kevin Harlan impersonation with a couple of football calls and that was a lot of fun. Kevin. Had A great time there. Todd, you did you did a pretty good Kevin Harlan impersonation. Awesome that we sent them the script of a couple of calls and he was a good sport to play along like then. Very cool. Can we play a little bit of that? Do we have the final call between Todd Fritz and Kevin Harlan? Final round here to decide the Kevin Harlan game if you're just joining. US Patrick Mahomes as added once again, the chiefs trailed by twenty one point now, they're down just four with under a minute ago. The single setback Hilaire mahomes rolls back. He's got Travis Kelsey in the back corner both. Touchdown Kansas City. Wow, that was a great call cab. That call. Here's the final call. Here if you're just joining us that it again, she's trail by twenty. Now they're down just four with under a minute to go the single back. Is Edwards e layer all enrolls right? He's got calcium back corner pulsating touchdown that she's have scored. You had Sunday enthusiasm and Kevin Harlan did not what happened. There was the broadcaster for the team play against the chiefs that he had the Thursday enthusiasm you had game day enthusiasm and you sounded more like Kevin Harlan than Kevin Harlan. Yes. He says more like Kevin was calling Thursday game. Yeah. Does it usually a bad exciting not as exciting and last night was not too exciting either the dolphins beat up the Jaguars. PAC twelve mountain west or get to play this fall the mid American conference decide either today or tomorrow Lakers up three one, they go for these series clinching. Win on Saturday. and. The NBA, finals Miami Heat. Try to put away the Boston Celtics tonight up three games to one as well. We welcome those in or watching on peacock. You can download the APP and you can watch for free all three hours and our radio affiliates around the country also say hello to chat row and Tyler your moderator mclovin. We're going to stay with the same poll question here. we get switched up. We asked if you should expand eight college football teams for the playoff and now eighty percents. Yes. So I think we have some popular movement there. I don't know why somebody would be a hold out here I'm okay if they want to expand it to eight teams. Given. This year has been unprecedented and you could get some more revenue back into some of these athletic departments like I'm okay. With that. I also wondered about these MVP odds because. Seen that second year quarterback make a jump whether it's Patrick. mahomes Lamar Jackson is Kyle Murray that player this year is Josh Allen going to be that Guy Right. Now, Russell Wilson is the leading candidate for the MVP. No players ever won the MVP while playing for a team with a losing record only two players have won it while playing on teams that missed the playoffs and both of those were over forty years ago and both had. Decent team records I know when OJ rush for two thousand yards, the bills went nine and five johnny united in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, seven, they lost the division tiebreaker to the rams both. The colts were eleven one in two, and the rams were eleven one and two. What are the odds of two teams in the same division ending up with two ties but johnny united. Simpson won the award even though the missed the playoffs and that's you know that could hurt cuyler Murray because I don't know Arizona's going to make the playoffs Seattle is GonNa be there rams appear to be a little better than I thought. I. Thought that the niners would take a step back with these injuries. They're certainly taking a step back at least in the first half of the season. Dak. Prescott. They didn't even win the division last year. They got to win it this year. He's going to be up there for the MVP race. Aaron. Rodgers is in the top five but if I was looking for a dark horse there, Josh Allen would be a guy because if they win the division and put up, you know maybe eleven wins and he has some good good numbers there. Maybe maybe he'd be the guy. A, he doesn't play in. Marquee Games. He doesn't he didn't get that. That standalone game. I think that when he beat Dallas when Buffalo beat Dallas last year that was one of those coming out parties where we wow Josh Allen he's pretty good. Now Josh Allen can give and take the way. He's got to cut down on I don't mind if you run. But if you run make sure you protect yourself and he does not protect himself. Cam Newton would be another guy that I would take a chance on if they win, he has a good story there as well. And you go to New England replacing Tom Brady nobody wanted you, and if you somehow end up with ten wins this year. Put up some good numbers and good rushing numbers. and. I've had some Patriot fan say you know you always said the Tom Brady didn't have any weapons but Cam Newton is throwing those same weapons and I said, well, I will say that what Belichick has done is established the run with Cam, and that does help these guys who can't get open on their own very often they can. They have a better chance of some separation there and we're gonNA find out if Nikiel Harry can actually play the position Eshelman we know. Can they just kind of throw together wide receivers and Cam? I think giving that thought that element of surprise of running gives these wide receivers, a little better opportunity to get open. Yeah. Paulie not for the. MVP But for the month of August and the rams could have interesting month because the rams are to, and now no one picked on the B. Two. Now they have Buffalo New York Washington San Francisco Chicago Miami. There's five win a very winnable games out of six in San Francisco is hurt. So in their next six games, obviously, they got a long way to go but nobody talks about the rams preseason after the burn of the year and a half ago but the rams could have a really nice start really good first half. Yeah and they have a great defense or at least you have to marquee players at key positions on defense if Jared Goff is able to. Reclaim that magic and Sean. McVeigh maybe. They're the surprise team. I expect Seattle to be there. Seattle's got to get better defensively I don't know how you get better defensively but. They better. It better happen because it feels like in that division, Arizona might steal one from you. In the Rams appear a little bit little bit better a little further along than we thought yet club don't have. An April may Bet I gave a shower shame or something crazy the rams winning the division. I'm almost sure police force me to do it and you said the rams will win the division. Yeah. Am I on the receiving you're not at all it was it was a solo me and I think I win something big and I don't even know why predicted it. You Win something. Big. Yeah. I'll have bob. Schmidt. Our sound guy pull it. But I picked the rams and May to win the division. I have no idea why they were in. Would you be bringing? Idaho until Paulie read that soft schedule, I wasn't going to bring it up either. But now he's got me all in. We'll talk to Michael Thompson. He does the radio analysis for the Lakers and get his thoughts on this team and how good they are as they got by the nuggets. It wasn't pretty they wanted at the free throw line which was the. Total that I was keeping an eye on. Lebron ad both going to the line over ten times. Yokich got into foul trouble there. Jamaal Murray is still tough to defend Lebron. Lebron credit. Here, he is at age thirty five and he's going to he wants to guard Jamal Murray, whose what twenty four in the final five minutes of the game. He asked to do that and did a pretty good job on it. I. As he said, it's winning time and I respect that you went out there and did his best to slowdown Jamal, Murray and they pick up the victory. Let me get a couple of phone calls in here Kevin in Virginia. Hey Kevin would you have for me today? Dan. To the question. Sure. Instead of eighteen playoff. What if the NC Double A. Did a sixteen play off each conference gets a bit and there's one at large teams wanted to get a by three plays six warplanes five. Well I propose that a while ago and I think we're headed for that Kevin but. Yeah, thanks for revisiting that but I think that's where we're headed eventually. Yeah. I I would I would bet that SEC would veto that one because if the SEC saw that everyone gets one in, they think someone else has taken away spot from them. The SEC would think okay if the sixteen playoff and we we get one plus one will probably be our. So we'll get to they're thinking to themselves. If we have an eighteen playoff, we get three teams in. Yeah. But they're only one voice there only one vote at the table there. Everybody, else is going to go. Thanks tough. You know we gotta get. We gotta get a pack twelve. School in there. Somehow SEC's never been more powerful than they are currently. Yeah. But they only have one vote at the table they're powerful but you know what are these other commissioners going to say? Oh. Okay. All. Right. We'll shift three. Just not gonNA happen at least I wouldn't let it happen I'm looking at the college football rankings. I don't know what it's based on Clemson is to know. So they're number one Alabama hasn't played their number two Oklahoma's three Georgia hasn't played there for Florida hasn't played their five Lsu six. They haven't played Notre Dame to know their game. This weekend was postponed dacoven. Auburn hasn't played their eight Texas WANNA know they're a nine and then Texas am is ten they haven't played. North Carolina in their sure they are. The you is in their. Cincinnati. Got Army coming up this weekend. Is there any other stranger teams in here Cincinnati's been there before marshals in the top twenty five armies in their? Virginia Tech hasn't played there in their. Pittsburgh is in their. Army what if army goes undefeated? They could there to know and they've got a lot of mishmash teams coming up after Cincinnati Abilene Christian. Don't sleep on the CITADEL UTSA MERCER Air Force to the army's got to run the table. Yeah. If, you had a a national title game of Army Versus Alabama, army, versus Clemson. That would be cool. I'll take I'll take a arbor army in the first half very I have cover for army. Absolutely I also saw the NFL's top ten backfield. Now, these are just running backs. Aren't they mclovin this doesn't this doesn't include your quarterback. This is current, right? Yes. This is from NFL DOT com topped him back. Okay. I keep saying the browns the best backfield in the NFL. You've been saying that since last year you were hired. Leon. Where do they rank? Believe. They are numerous. Okay. Yes. There one. Okay. Where does But see they have two running backs. I'm trying to think how many other teams have that diversity that luxury their. Advocate now that I'm reading this list, there's some silly ones on here and like Tampa Bay buccaneers are four with leading for net and Ronald Jones. That's creek. Well, you have to have to if I'm saying the best backfields. You know it feels like it's plural that there's two guys in there you know with the quarterback. So the backfield. Backfield is the best running back. Leonard for was got basically released and Ronald Jones was always people entrusts ever remember Cam Newton gone released to unbelievable I mean Leonard Fournette ran well last week. Packers gotta be there guests right there too. Okay. But what's that based off of you're right I like this one Baltimore with JK Dobbins Gus. Edwards and Mark Ingram okay. Now, that one I at least understand because you have three other three runningback their. steelers got two running backs. You've got snow and you got James Kana. So I I would think they might be in the pictures well. Kind of misleading top ten list feels like. But. I think the guys arguing that you need to running back right now that the era of the running back by committee. I I understand that. But now this is one of the weirder listening Okay Rams with Malcolm Brown and Darryl Henderson. That's not even who they plan to have camakers got hurt. You sent me the list I know I should have read it. I. I. We have a new in she pull opposite from Paulie. All right. Let me get to Jesse in Wisconsin. Then we'll get to the interesting poll option page s would you have for me today? EP Boy thought she flow and Oh everything's great we got. we got jump Eliah. solid. You gotta five ten swimming one maingate going on here right now by the way. I wanted to propose to you guys may not think of a save a couple bras and make a nice little scrambler in the morning. That could be that topic could be broached but thank you there Jessica. Scrambled eggs with bronze yes mclovin. Okay are discussing this poll question, which should be permanent. Shorter Major League baseball season shorter NBA season. Or College football starting a little later late September instead of end of August early September. I don't want college football to start later. I'm okay. With at the end of August first week in September I'm okay with that. Baseball shorten the regular season I'm for that what was the other one? NBA shortly. I have to pick one or only get to pick one. I would pick baseball. It that that's just a that's just a slog baseball seasons of smog. It's just like Oh my God, even the sixty games as amazing as that may sound felt like it was interminable. Thank you just and their speeding up the process. They got doubleheaders that are seven innings. They're starting extra innings with a guy at second base. You've just gone. Let's postseason start. WHO's in the postseason? Is it best. At the best of five best is seven and where are they going to be located Just like they threw it into a blender just said, let's spin it and then we'll pour it out and then hopefully people will consume it. Yes. If baseball didn't have regular season, how much more baseball would you watch? I I bet a ton. If if they didn't have any regular season or if they had like a a quarter of regular C., let's say they played. Twenty Five Games oh no, that's more than they don't don't rest all your starter if they if they played twenty five games, I'd watch baseball. But you're not watching so much baseball now. Yeah. But it doesn't matter of it matters. Well, it kind of does not really. How about they cut down on the playoffs, the number of playoff teams, and then you have like twenty each team plays thousand five games, and then only a couple teams get in, they should either get rid of the regular season or get rid of the playoffs. One of the other eliminate the regular season everybody makes the playoffs right and it's just one long tournament, right which is. Yes mclovin. You're alive. You guys wouldn't even watch that. person. WHO's GonNa tune in until the world series I watched four innings of a baseball game because I couldn't find a remote the other day. My daughter wouldn't help me look true story. Yes. That's a lot of basement watch Paul, four innings as like three and a third. How did you do it? They switch pitchers and again I just think that you can't make a pitching change in the middle of an inning. Like that would be a a rule that I would have. There'd be a few other ones in there. I'd make the game seven innings. And no pitching change in the middle of an inning. What if you had a swing at every pitch, you know how `bout you get two strikes and three balls. Now at that. All in favor say Aye. All oppose. Yes time, what do you make a foul ball with to strike strike three like as if you're wondering? Yeah. Sure. WanNa. Make it alive ball foul balls or now live and they have to go in the stands. There's nobody pulled. The first basement instead of just ending at the wall, he goes into stance no one in there. But a bunch of cardboard cutouts have an inside the park home run off of foul ball. Minded. You. Put your arms up member and we'd go under the fence. You put your arms up like you guys hold play where that wiffle ball and it goes into like a Bush or something you're trying to find like hold off I can't find it.

I said yesterday I'm looking at the rebounding differential between the Lakers and nuggets and I was looking at how many free throws the Lakers shot in particular Lebron and Lebron AD shot over thirty free throws combined. Here is the head coach of the Nuggets Mike Malone. Saying that he's going to do with frank, Vogel did blading the game I thought Jamal Murray attack the basket a few times where it appeared to be contact. So we'll watch the film and we'll send clips in will reach out to the NBA and kind of make our points noted and Whether them going through the proper channels affected tonight or not I have no idea. The NBA does a great job of listening and that hardly you know you hope that next game. Maybe some of those fouls or call. All right. Mike Malone, next game coming up on. Saturday Michael Thompson. The Lakers radio analyst who time NBA Champ joining us on the program. Been Awhile Michael Thank you for getting up and joining us just a coincidence that the Lakers had all those free throws or do you think this was something that was carried out premeditated? No, not at all Dan and the Lakers much more aggressive in getting four game three and they reward for that aggressive. Basket they were playing physical, and that's the nature of the NBA and guys who play coaching. This league for a long time should understand that sometimes he goes the calls are going to go your way some games sometimes go against you and that's something you have to play through when when you're not getting any calls, you got to buckle down Bentley get messed with offer and say, okay, we're not gonNA call tonight we gotta find a way to win the game as opposed to always looking at the referee and hoping to get bailed out and that goes for the Lakers and nuggets. I don't know if it's just because of the number of games they played in a a finite amount of time in the bubble but this is the first time I can remember seeing Lebron where. I, I'm seeing an older Lebron he's still can be brilliant takeover a game He knows his role. There is a good deal of time last night where he sort of faded out and wasn't a factor here. Am I reading too much into this Michael, though it has to catch up with him at some point, but it feels like he almost has to pick his spots a little more than he ever did before. Dr Yeah Thirty Five Years Eight Athlete nineteen years and do his career Dan nuts seventeenth is you add in all the playoff games he's played two years of playoff basketball to exit year. So nine, thousand, nine, hundred. Thirty five and having the got beat a guy to carry a team every TV on I think a lot of the lots toll on your body and sure he has to pick his spot that thirty five years. There's nothing wrong with that all the great players, colby? Michael. Jordan Kareem they all had to do with thirty five or forty years of age and the good thing about Lavar, as you got the second best player in the game citizen depend on to carry the team Anthony. Davis. So he doesn't have to carry for forty minutes he had in the past. Why can't I do this every night because. He's too unselfish. He's such a good teammate that if he demanded twenty five south to nine thirty tonight, he put up these kind of numbers. That's how great unstoppable is at. But you know the the bunch of other champions on his team guys who've been there done that Lebron. Danny. Green. They'll Javale McGee Jr Committee gets the. Game? Six champion Squawk resigned Rhonda. They've got six guys on the team who won there been there done that one championship and he knows that, yeah, I can go out and be selfish and try to score forty every night for those guys'll have with me. They know how to win so he understands that and he allows those guys to do their thing to. Why do we still marvel at playoff? RONDO OR WE SEEM SURPRISED WITH PLAYOFF RONDO Because a lot of people don't understand all the little things. He does help the team, win a championship. He's talked minded a competitor. He'll go out and get the rebounds. He's throwing excellent pather knows how to lead a team you've been doing. Worke and Boston and a lot. That's a lot of people. He doesn't. He doesn't put up the big numbers like a Steph or Daniel Lillard or those type of guards. So people overlook and understand all the little things he does to help the team win tapping Jeff. He never looks like he's having any fun Michael. Not The look on the Michael Jordan. Having Fun Kobe when they're out there. A Little Bit Mondo places and I love that about him. Who is the role player that has to play well for this team to win a title That's a great question because the Lakers have many good from. Alex cruiser the Dwight Howard to Kau Ku. But I I would say if you need a guy to step up. Especially to win the next round. they're all important. But if I, if you made me think about one guy I guess I would be coup because coups learn has the ability to come off the bench and you'd be twenty points and sort of do with Jeremy Grant is doing for Denver in this series. Of the talented skills to get the Lakers twenty points, a game or eighteen twenty game and the final once they get there. Let's move ahead. Let's just say the Miami Heat and the Lakers face off in the finals. Give me like handicap that matchup like what kind of headaches problems with the heat give the Lakers. But let go balanced. So well coached they played copy then spread the ball around a like Denver. They moved the ball. Well, it got shoot us all over the floor especially now with the emergence of hero. So there, well, balanced team ever well-balanced attack it on depend on one guy to carry them every night, it could be Jimmy. One. Night drug. Dragging in that, the next night could be he wrote a book the showing up this Jay cloudy can knock down three very versatile team that. That's the thing the Lakers play and they're well coached and that Pat Riley style. These Michael. Thompson the Lakers radio analyst two time NBA, champion the Lakers plus if you had Lebron and he had to go back to Miami now, that would be a juicy storyline because those fans wouldn't be happy to see him. But the fact that they're going to be in the bubble you know you're GONNA neutralized that you're gonNA take that off the table. So that would be an advantage for the Lakers, but then they don't have that homecourt advantage. So it's probably evens itself out. You feel that way. These playoffs. So different this year, Dan, even though the Lakers all create one. Because, they're not going back to La for game five. No. Thanks for grabs because the on a neutral court sterile court. So not being a funnier home fans makes all the different in the world and you're right what an atmosphere that would have been for games three and four in Miami La was coming out there. We definitely misses we can't have this happen again. Were you on the Lakers when magic that Hook shot in the Boston Garden? You, bet I was I was right there on the bench had a great you of it on the court with them but. That was like the last of possessions rally got me out of the game. So I wouldn't. Do. You remember what the play was was was magic supposed to take that showed. No that was kind of like off of a looking inside the Korean and but then Kevin Mchale Switzerland on address Matic said Oh. You know what? I can take this little and that's when he can then did that little running hook across the lane and you know what? Not Shot. You look at that highlight again, if he would've missed that Corinne was right there for the put back dunk, there's nobody walked on. Green Robert Parish and Mikhail with act magic. Johnson even magic list we were going to win between was going to tip duck it anyway how crazy was that atmosphere when when you guys? That game ended in just trying to get to your locker room and I remember being in that locker room and it was so hot in there. No air conditioning. It was so tight. It was just chaos in there. What do you remember about that shot goes in? I'll intense about that whole scene wasn't the Boston Garden hose co a craze. Those fans are GonNa say Love Your Celtics, and now the you could cut the atmosphere with a knighthood was so thick attention was so sick every minute of the game even warm-up you knew that this is a totally different from just playing any kind of a regular game going south, End Boston, and the final the Lakers nothing and ball will ever compared to that tougher facing magic or bird. I'm going to Atlantic, of course. Bird is Berg man you know he was seized among the all time greats. Ten greatest ever played a game. The way he competed he wasn't GonNa be friends with anybody shake anybody's before the game he was he was like bill lamb veal with more talent and not as dirty. Did. He talk trash to you I. Did I was trying to listen but he would tell you. You know you shouldn't be on me. You can't guard me take this one with you being knocker shot down on you but I just tried to ignore it because there was nothing like a do about anyway if I didn't let it hurt my feelings. Do you think your son is the best shooter in NBA. History. Of course I do of course are dealt thinks except Steph is Bradley Beal father that the is Lilith that he is. But yeah, I, mean honestly players in the end the compensation and he should be I one thing. and I've told him this and I other people on record and on the year I think the warriors when they had Kevin Durant, they had the three greatest shooters on the same team in history I. Don't see anybody could assume that. Durant durant a great shooter. You thought you wondering about that did you watch you play with the warriors and you see all those great shopping was knocking down from everywhere? Yeah. He sees a mid range jumper. He's got knocked now to. The finals against in the Bronx. I knew blaming you are east coast you're up too late or whatever. So but I watch every warriors game with. That man he is uncanny how well he can shoot cold Michael. Michael I've been watching NBA Games. I remember you in College. So I've I've watched a lot of basketball and I think Kevin Durant is one of the top five shooters probably in the history of the game I was just having fun and so. You understand. I don't know we'll ever see a team like we the with three dive I got on the same thing I. Don't think we'll ever against. I, think that Steph has done more for the game than Michael Jordan did for the game. For that to say that I don't know. I. Mean Obviously, staff is in the face of the League. For years I don't know man Michael. Jordan. Arguably the greatest player ever either him or choline. But look at the impact though Steph has had Michael everybody thinks. You have guys who've come into the league and they think they can be nobody thought they could be Michael Jordan. And Kobe what are you talking about now? No but they're you know they're they're more people playing basketball more kids playing basketball. Think they can be steph curry than can be like Michael. Jordan would you say that's fair okay okay. So that's That's an impact like trae young is in the NBA. He's a byproduct of Steph. Curry. Michael Jordan is responsible for coding. Kobe even said that well, how do you compare say guys like trae young ones be when you have guys like Kobe and Dwayne Wade who wanted to be Michael. dwayne Wade wasn't Michael Kobe was pretty damn close to Michael but there's only a couple of guys. They're more guys who have that ability to shoot deep because Steph curry I just think his legacy will be He. He made it. Cool for little little smaller players to think they could play in the NBA that you didn't have to jump out of the gym. You didn't have to be exceptionally big and I think. That steph Curry's legacy on this sport. Oh, that's a great point. You know you look at Michael Jordan, he was a physical specimen six foot six wiry strong. You might not every kid's GonNa. beat way. But steph when he came into the League, look like he's one of the ball boys and. That encourage other kids as he can do it. I can do you're right about that. But imagine if he played against the Celtics back then in the eighties like book, how much would they have just the Pistons Badboy? They would've roughed him up right because you could vote. Doesn't matter Dan Steph the top competitor just let us pretty boy looked. Doesn't back down from anybody in great players like south they could play in any era. I don't care who is playing against what are you GonNa do you can't stop the way he gets a shot off from that range there's nothing to do you can put your. You could put your hand on them. Be Far more physical so it'd be harder for him to get to his spots. You're not. You're not giving him credit the way he can get round guys stepped up some of the best ball handling skills. You've ever seen him as an entire Irving Isaiah Thomas. Tim Hardaway those guys you put to handle the ball having they can get away from. What if I have you in clay versus Steph in Del People always asking that question who would win the curry's killer They don't miss the our be of such A. Hindrance. I can't shoot like Dell Dell would go around me knock down three soon as Silica Thompson Smith I would do then the curry would take over. If it's hit a take. You know then they would. They would want. To eleven by one. Nine. Shots. But. If I at your peak at in your prime and and Dell and his prime, how would you guys do? Then going through eleven by one it was be eleven to six because I would miss and play with the mad at me. For weeks because I look game because I couldn't keep up with Dell I know the Beatles I'm not. So I, have a big ego but I I'm probably not to admit. It's great to catch up with you Michael as always we appreciate your time. Thanks for joining us. Any GRANDDAD. Good to talk to you never turn down Dan the man. Thank you. Michael Michael Thomson Lakers radio analyst who time NBA Champ been a while since we've had him on but. That scene was so chaotic in the Boston Garden. And it was so hot in June in Boston and they you know the crowd runs onto the floor and you got the Lakers are just knocking people out of there just to get to the locker room. And I went into the locker room because you're doing postgame coverage and you're just trying to get interviews and it was it was just crazy. Just crazy. Yeah Paulie we're watching the clip over here right now you after Magic's shot you don't remember remember what happened next because the place is going crazy that didn't end the game bird had a shot in the corner right? Bird is being covered by my. Thought worthy loss to kind of a bird. The scenery pretended he was cutting towards the basket and he just stayed out there and did a total push off Michael. Kubrick. He had a great look from three and he caught the back iron and Burgess stands a second looking at like he can't believe he. Yeah and he should have hit that because that was that that's what he does. Yeah mclovin Michael is right. Kareem was wide open for the put back now I didn't remember that either the I didn't either. I just remember when he made that Hook shot in the Boston Garden went silent and club we're looking at the video. The crowd is so on top of the court, do you remember it being very close? Yes extremely. Like that was that's one of those true home court advantages and the benches are right there and. It it was a because that was when Larry and magic at their peak in Kareem was still contributing and. You know that was. That was that was some real distance I don't know hatred but there was certainly dislike there between those two and that was wonderful rivalry. Great. Great to have you know up close seat watching that those games even when the rockets had Akeem and Ralph Sampson and they played the Celtics in the Boston Garden and Robert Reid think was the guy was guarding Larry Bird and David. McRae. One of the McRae brothers. Not Scooter Rodney mccrae. Just great stuff and I remember at the time Craig. Yellow. Wasn't good enough to play for the rockets but he would workout for an hour prior to the game and then you fast forward to Craig. Hilo. Becoming a starter for the Cleveland Cavaliers and then he's the guy that gets poster is with Michael Jordan when he hit that game winning shot. I will take a break last call for phone calls.

Results poll question mclovin. Okay. So we put up last hour, which do you want to say permanent shorter NBA season shorter. Caesar late September Sharp College football shorter, but it's close a lot of people say shorter MBA as well. This change sports history Paulie a bunch from Dan nineteen sixty, five Willie mays at the age of thirty four became the oldest man hit fifty home runs in a season. He also had the record for the being the youngest person to hit forty home runs in a season video marines and the season a twenty four. Page at age fifty, nine pitched three shutout innings versus the Boston. Red. SOx Fifty nine and you wonder what he would have been like if he was given the opportunity to pitch. You're doing that in your fifties. And you know we talk about Jackie. Robinson there were other players, Josh? Gibson. Was the one that I would have been most curious about how great he would've been because by all accounts those who played with and against him in the Negro Leagues talked about him being. Babe Ruth like player. Nineteen ninety-three Dan Charles Barkley was the guest host of Saturday night live. Can you guess the musical guest? Nineteen ninety-three. About as good as it gets. For Nineteen, ninety-three is a good one nirvana. Nirvana's correct now nirvana new valen ear Vanna Sean Salisbury once two thousand one my. Ll. Cool. J. From now. Lorena Jay and Sean Salisbury was one of the Co host with me. Do. You have the quote from Salisbury Berry was talking to Dagoes Ju- listen to other bands like Nirvana and L. L goes. Never van a tough day. Barclay feet up. WHO's the purple? Stuffed animal barring Barney Oh. Yeah. I think Barclay beat up Barney on that Saturday night live two thousand and one. Michael Jordan announced returned to the NBA as a player for the Washington Wizards. Two thousand one. Kyle and California joining us on the program Kyle. Welcome back what do you have for me? They DP hey, but I, you're you're totally right on Lebron He's not quite the same guy. He's exerting themselves a lot more especially on defense. You know goes cavs team you know stick them on Harrison Barnes or whatever, and he comes to play weakside. He can't really do that anymore and then the whole nuggets free-throw saying they've shot the same amount for four games before last night's game but nuggets have shot twelve more for each other than the Lakers so. If Lebron suits, two free throws and again I think I just taught. Quote Kyle, Korver said when he plays against Lebron, you think he gets every call and play with them doesn't get nearly enough. And you're probably right but I did say keep an eye on those totals for him. You know has gone to the line and I think they're the exact number of free throws in this series so far with these teams. But as they move forward does Denver get a little bit more leeway here coming up and also sometimes the team that just lost comes back in his in his more aggressive minute just natural and I think you saw that with the Lakers but it dawned on me last night. And having seen Lebron first time I. met him. He was still in high school. and He has played in one thousand nine seasons when you think about it when he's played to full postseasons. It catches up with everybody we know that but sometimes it's dramatic. Sometimes, it's very subtle and with Lebron I think it's been subtle last night was the first time I saw him where I went. He can't be what he wants was where you just take over a series. Now he can take over a game I don't know if he's capable of taking over series. You know maybe he proves me wrong against the Miami Heat I still expect them to win the title but. This is where he's so smart. He understands he's got I. I have to make sure Anthony Davis feels like he's the go-to Guy. He's The star I want him to be the best player on the floor Lebron deep down feels like he's still the best player in the game I mean that's why he was saying, Hey, I was p owed that I didn't get many. First Place Votes for the MVP I think deep down he knows what the Greek freak did was more impressive. But when we don't factor in Lebron, doing what he did at this age degree of difficulty, I don't think factored into the MVP I would factored it in because I. Think what he did you lead the League in assists you go through the West because remember. A ticket to the NBA finals because he's in the east. I would still love to have the Lakers, go into Miami if they were playing in the finals. That's put. All Miss. The most of those two teams face each other just to see how the Miami Heat fans react but we're such hypocrites like Lebron. Left us. You didn't feel bad for Cleveland when he left Cleveland.

Boston Venue: The Channel Story

SEASON ONE, EPISODE THREE: I Fought The Law

"Welcome to Boston venue to channel podcast. This is the true complete story of the legendary Boston music club, the channel from shaky launch, and one of Boston's grittiest neighborhoods through the glory years of beer, so rock punk and reggae shows from an incredible roster of artists, and its demise at the hands of local mobsters after a spectacular run. A demise that ultimately led to a murder that would take twenty five years to solve this podcast includes explicit, language and violent episodes, no sugar coating and no bullshit. Let's rock. The channel still known as channel one at the time opened on may thirtieth nineteen eighty despite fermentable challenges from all local power players, including KOP's, Selvi, hoods, and the entrenched hierarchy of the Boston live music scene the first weekend, which featured local headliners, the neighborhoods was successful, the team, breathed a collective sigh of relief as their ultra risky social experiment. Appeared to be working for now on July eleventh nineteen eighty Ernie Santosuosso of the Boston Globe wrote henceforth channel one. The recently opened economy sized rock club at twenty-five, neck, Neko's street near south station, will be known simply as the channel the name change motivated by a show of good faith by co owner, Harry Boris came about after a Newton firm also doing business as channel one was deluge with hundreds of phone calls and requests for concert information. We thought it was a big setback. Introduced a club under a new name. We thought there might be a difficult task going forward. But we decided to make the most out of it, and maybe create a brand around the channel. So I was walking down the Boston public guidance when after noon, and I noticed the swan boats on the lagoon, and I knows the reflection. So I went back into the club and I asked Richard Clements. One of my partners to help me with an idea that I had about developing logo for the channel Richard was a very accomplished amateur photographer. He had a high end camera and dark room. So we basically got stick on fons than we pasted them on a piece of cardboard. And then we got an inverted barrel. Cover with Philu with water and put the channel rendering on the cardboard top of it shook the wobbly table and created a reflection on it. So rich shot a bunch of shots in high-speed black and white film, and he may. A couple of contact sheets and we picked out the best ones and through series of photographic manipulations. We selected one and we get a negative on it cut it down to the proper Cise and later on leases Saint, John designed the slug that appeared be low the picture. Boston's best live rock, and that's the way the channel logo was born the first sixty days of music was an impressive run rock and roll royalty like leave on Hellman Joe cocker new wave punk and post punk bands like the feelies the stranglers, and Johnny thunders and local heroes mission of Burma, the stompers, the Atlantic's and Jon butcher, axis to mention a few rising Boston headliners, and there was no shortage of emerging Boston bands, that were capturing national attention. Charlie Farren veteran of Boston supergroup Fahrenheit and the Joe Perry project recalls that time the channel. Yeah. That was the place to play in the few could headline at the channel. You had arrived of had many memorable shows with my bands balloon, and Fahrenheit at the channel, and people would come to the channel who touring and playing in Boston with come couple of times at the beach boys came down our manager Peter limbo, was friendly with them and hit go see them at the tent on the waterfront and bring them back to the channel and hang out in the dressing room with us. Eddie money came down a couple of times. So we played the channel. Manny many times one of the more memorable times is we did the, the Boston tour nineteen eighty seven and it was eighty five to ninety sold out shows in probably, I don't know, maybe forty cities many of the city's with three and four nights. We played in Boston at the Worcester centrum. Now it's the DC you center, and we play the nine nights, but we'd played all summer and then we took a break it, it Christmas time. And during that break Fahrenheit had a sold out show at the channel, and it was just off the hook crazy. Great. There was always something special about a performance at channel. Beats. The. In the beginning local headline is putting much on bookings that we could get it was almost impossible to get even the villa abilities full touring acts. So we reached out, then Joe who originally owned the show boat before it became the channel had a connection with the guide named the French Roussel who was promoted in Providence, Rhode Island. He was interested in getting a foothold in Boston. So we set up a deal where he would book some shows national shows that the channel so out of the maybe eight shows that he book, six six of them were pretty much losers including Johnny cougar in the zone who later became John Mellencamp, ultimately we figured that we had to do this on our own. And that's what we set out to do, but it wasn't easy. There were entrenched powers on the scene in one thousand nine hundred eighty Boston that had to be dealt with, and some of them were less than welcoming to the new kid on the block. Doc, the most threatening to the new venue. Don law. Remember the guy who sent the magnum of champagne Don law through his company, tea party, concerts dominated concert promotion in Boston. He had exclusive deals with all the key venues in the city, the orpheum, the paradise, and the Boston Garden, those three facilities hosted the vast majority of major live rock events in the city law. Also, booked, big name rock shows, in a club complex on Lansdowne St. known as metro and spit. The metro was primarily a disco dance club with a similar capacity to the channel that occasionally hosted big name concerts in the hours before the dance crowd showed up. So the shows at the metro got out early and for the most part ticket prices were high, so rather than hurt us, those shows actually helped us on our opening night, which was may thirtieth the metro had as headline as the second Delic, I that show actually help us not of the. People that got out from that show were are part of our opening night crowd. As a matter of fact, we sent a couple of guys down there to spread the word about the new club across town, Donlon his organization, used the local media agencies and exclusive deals with both artists and management to keep competitors. At bay Cianci, the press was the promotion coordinator at WBZ end during its eighties heyday and saw laws operation firsthand concert promoters, back, then, it was very, very competitive business, there were other smaller level promoters, but Donald and his company were the tops, they control, the lot of the music business that came in and out of town, and certainly competitive so WBZ did concert promotions with virtually all of these concepts that came into town, the Boston Garden, the orpheum theatre metro on Lansdowne St. of the rat bun. Readies the paradise me. We promoted and worked on all these shows and venues, so almost. Every show that we did. There was also the promotions attached to it winners going backstage, when is sitting in the front row when his standing on stage when participating in the show that was set up through the Don law company and the band Don law was eager to make an exclusive agreement with the channel, but the team soon realized that the deal was one sided, and it sure as shit wasn't their side laws deal would only guarantee us twenty six shows per year. The rest of the knights were up to us to fill local headlines. And if the local band got signed Don law would then have exclusive rights to that Bantu negotiations were tents and it went on well past the opening weekend in the end the team decided not to work with Don law. They figured that no deal was better than a bad deal. So for the next decade, plus Don LA did everything in his power to put us out of business. So law controlled the city stages. But what about the city's airwaves anyone in the business of rock and roll in nineteen eighty s Boston needed WBZ and radio, though rock of Boston was the city's FM powerhouse? And when the station was behind an event it was almost guaranteed to be a success. The BC and DJ's all new the power the station held, and they'd use their status to score paid MC gigs the venue paid deejays generous, talent fees and received on air promo mentions in return. Carter Allen, a longtime Boston deejay and music director on both WBZ N and classic. Rocker WBZ LX is also a music historian and author of several rock and roll histories, my first channel show was in July twenty fourth nineteen eighty with Robert Ellis oral. And a lot of the conscience, I saw there were, you know, local shows the Atlantic's there in September eighty beaver Brown, the tweeds American teen and the trademarks played there and I do remember in. WBZ. And when I first started working there in nineteen seventy nine they had the rock and roll rumble, twenty four local bands competing, which continues to this day, the following year, nineteen eighty because of my local music connections. They asked me to run the rumble because Oedipus was on the air fulltime, and he couldn't do it anymore. So I started running the rumble nineteen Eighty-one CEO's e who were in direct competition with WBZ and decided to put on their own battle of the bands, and it was at the same time as BC. And when we got really upset about that. It was the challenge the CEO's e challenge at the channel I do. Remember getting our twenty four bands and making them sign contracts. And that they would not play the challenge so that went on that was drama that happened in nineteen Eighty-one. I do believe the stompers won that competition for CEO's e I remember going down there a couple of nights. I mean a battle is a battle and competitions competition and ratings ratings. So some great times at the channel seeing James Brown. There was amazing. I was a guest EJ on new music nights, down there, starting in March nineteen eighty. One, so anytime there was local bands or new bands rather playing there. I would provide the music in between. I'd spin music between the band's B C N had the power to make or break up and coming band, like gang oh, four. We were trying to break through two different national agencies to get some villa Bility's for tour necks was very difficult. It seemed that law had the Saudi to with most of the book agents that he should just get any act that he wanted. So we got an veil for a band called gang four from England through a punk band with a social Justice kind of vibe, there were a national tour. The money was steep. But both the agent and Warren, the book agent thought it was a good move to get our foot in with the agency, and establish a relationship, and possibly do more shows in the future. So we put an offer in giving them all the money they wanted. And before the end of the day, we'll get a verbal confirmation. That the show is a house. We put it on sale, and we were pretty excited about it the next day, we got a call. The show was going to be cancelled and then we're gonna play the paradise club. Instead saw, you know, I get a little bit upset obviously. And I call the agency name of the agency was FBI frontier booking international in, I asked to speak to the owner incoporate which I did this was a big deal. Ian Copeland was the head of FBI, frontier booking international and also brother of Stewart Copeland drummer of the legendary rock, power trio the police Phyllis crane was the office manager at the channel and remembers the episode with gang of four I remember that there was panic because it happened so late and the way you reacted to it was pretty much the way we reacted to a lot of things was I have to do something about this, and I have to do something about it now. And you managed to make the right decision at the right time. Him and save an event three. And Copeland had no problem telling me the reason that they cancelled the show was that Dr LA had said that if the show played the channel Bassy and would drop the band from regular rotation. I didn't think that was right. And so, I reached out to WBZ n talk to the general manager at the time a guy named Tony Burr Dini, and he did the right thing. He basically said that nobody had a right to tell them who the plan who not to play, and that he would call Copland and tell him that, that, that wasn't the way was going to be. So the next day, I took an air shuttled to New York with a certified check in my pocket for the deposit. That was required. I went over to their office on Broadway. And I met with the and Copeland who was very supportive in, I left there with a signed contract in my pocket FBI ended up being a stalwart supporter of the channel. And we bought many acts from over the years, including Joe jet, the Gogos still pulse English beat Minneapolis, BCM's power and reach was immense. Take the first beef fifty to show, the club was offered a date for the widely popular band long before they struck platinum with the Nile Rodgers produced love shack, the beef fifty two's were occulting off kilter surf rock band from Athens, Georgia. They were a national draw, and they were well managed and they wanted twenty grand for a sixty minutes set there were two stipulations one was that the show would happen in exactly one week on a Tuesday night, the second no advertising. We expected the sell this show out, using grassroots stuff stuff on the street, like flyers posters, and, you know, buzzed world street, there was actually a service called the fly distribution service where the sky is too high a homeless people to. Go-round downtown in downtown Boston and Kenmore square. The in in college areas and pass flies around for different shows, so that in the buzz on the street that would that's what we're expected to use the cell, the show if the beef fifty two's camp. Caught wind of the channel promoting the show with any paid advertising, the show would be cancelled. Why would they do such a thing to maintain indie cred, the allure of mysterious nece to undermine the Macintoshes of, greedy, musical industrial complex in its legions of vampiric? An are men who bled artist dry, who the fuck knows I personally allows behind who the fuck indeed the team got around the ban on paid advertising by calling in some favors from BC in it only took a couple of on air drivetime mentioned to get the buzz going. Tickets also went on sale at strawberries, nubrik comics and the out of town ticket agency in Harvard square and someone even drove down to strong. Bury's records on Washington street in downtown Boston and put up posters the show sold out. We mentioned earlier, how a single ad in the Boston Phoenix led to a ton of foot traffic for the channel that's because in one thousand nine hundred eighty the Phoenix dominated alternative and entertainment, print media, the Phoenix personified free speech and artistic expression, it had top tier award-winning features, op-eds, and photo journalism, pieces that covered entertainment, politics and social issues on both a national, and local level. It also had the Phoenix's classifieds whatever you looking for you could find in those classifieds a punk band looking for a bass player a professional escort looking for a hot date boys looking for girls boys. Looking for boys girls, looking for girls dressed, like boys, the classifieds satisfied every in need in those pre internet days. So with a healthy cash flow from advertise. Zing and an award winning editorial staff. The Phoenix was killing it in the early eighties. There would be providence in Portland additions and Phoenix radio. In the form of influential alternative. Rocker WFAN X was on the horizon sitting at the top of this complicated. Empire was Stephen Minhaj, founder and CEO of Phoenix media and communications group, Mendes was a colorful chain smoker who lived in a gated mansion on beacon hill with his wife celebrity, judge Maria Lopez Bradman, ditch Stephen son, remembers his dad, he really was a maverick and a true entrepreneur, you know, his complete commitment to journalistic excellence, you know, really beginning at the time, when, you know during the Vietnam war, and, and all of that, and, and being committed to covering things in what would later be known as alternative journalism, because of that he allowed so many people so many journalists to really explore things and get. It involved with things and stay committed to all of the things that were part of his goal right from the very beginning. So Don law ruled the stages. B C N ruled the airwaves and the Phoenix dominated alternative print media. There were some other big swing and Dixon, Boston that the channel management had to deal with two. We've already seen a painful example of the polices power to hurt the new business after sergeant Johnson was rebuffed in his demand to be the channels security consultant things had gotten testy Peterborough's longtime general manager recall some of those encounters uniform in undercover cups from the drug unit would commute on a pretty regular basis, check for the capacity, and then they would go in the club when they will do random I did checks to his the move. Look underage the Knox had plenty of potential targets at the new scene making nightclub drugs were very much part of the music scene. The pervaded the music scene back in the eighties. The roads would smoke joints when they were load Knin. Cocaine was a big part to vary. A lot of bans really like cocaine, we had euphemisms, that when bands would ask for cocaine on the writers it would even be special deli platter. Or one of the terms was, we have to do the right thing with his band than that usually meant getting them. Eight ball of cocaine for the most part, the next one interested in the end user in Rhody performer or customer. They were there. I keeping their eye open to try to find the guys that were responsible for dealing kilos of cocaine throughout the city. Tom Flaherty, a selfie resident who also owned a local watering spot. The cornerstone cafe was the area's city fire inspector. He would always ask the capacity ask, how many people we have in the room, then he'd say, come on take walk through. So we would walk around and check the exits to make sure that all the doors were frivolous, obstructions specially backstage, because backstage, these stack the road case. Is in front of the emergency exits, I wanna vase that he would hit the roof. You know while the channel had quickly become a scene onto itself. There was still a lingering darkness shadowing, the bright lights of those halcyon days. The club was making money. There were thousands in cash on the premises every night. The locals were taking notice money and drugs tend to attract unsavory characters at the most inconvenient times. So the south wise, guys, never really left the Salone. They engaged in turf wars at channel. So we had hired this guy who is head of security, and he was a real hard ass and one night in a couple of our security guys beat the shit out of this patron cops will call, and there was incident reports. And everything's we decided that we were gonna fire the sky. We always believed that it was important to contain the situation. Not add to it by using force violence to subdue people. So we find him. Apparently he had hired three or four maybe five of those Southie wise, guys that was threatening us the beginning, and they staged a massive walkout. They said that, if this guy was gone, they would all walk out and we'd be left without any security for an upcoming busy weekend. In much of Aden's, Boston. Southie residents ruled literally Ray Flynn was the mayor. Jimmy Kelly was the head of the city council. Billy Bolger was the Senate president, and his brother James, Whitey Bulger. Well, you know what he was about. But there were other less visible players who still wielded considerable power from government center, the north end and other neighborhoods were destined to play pivotal roles in the future of the channel. The channel was making it. And with success comes a price, everyone wants a piece some are willing to do whatever it takes to get that piece. On the next episode. The channel makes a big splash and guys with nicknames like the animal motion dapper and Cadillac Frank. Take notice.

With two minutes left on the clock, their nine year two, thousand, four, hundred, and ninety, five game winning streak is on the verge extinction. Meadow. LARK backpedals down the court to get back on defense. He's thirty eight now long removed from his prime and he was never a great true basketball player to begin with. Across from him The Washington generals captain and coach the fifty year old red clots dribbles the ball over half court at a snail's pace to drain the clock.

In our previous episode, the Harlem Globetrotters lost, their longtime leader Abe Sapper Stein to a heart attack and their former on-court leader Goose tatum to a lifetime of hard living finally catching up to him under new ownership the teams core values shifted from fans I to profits I. At the outset, the new approach works at least financially, but the success was short lived the moment. The trotters weren't a cash cow for investors they turned into a business hot potato sold and resold with no concern for the globetrotters pioneering heritage. As the seventies got underway, could their legacy attract a hero to save them from the trash heap of bankruptcy or would it only attract vultures circling to pick the last meet off their once mighty bones? This is episode five, a legacy for sale. It's November Sixteenth Nineteen seventy-one in Chicago. inman Jackson eases his sixty four year old body into his living room chair. Even though he retired from suiting up for the globetrotters over two decades ago part of him hopes the rumors he's heard aren't true. Still another part knows it's been a long time coming. He switches his television to the nightly news and there it is. Nine Harlem, globetrotters are picketing outside the ticket booth of an arena in Michigan Inman can't help but to smile with pride. When ownership transferred from a pristine to George Gillett, the players sensed an opportunity to get a long overdue raise. They united to collectively bargain against Gillette all for one and one for all. Except Meadow Lark lemon backed out of the Compact and sneakily negotiated his deal separately. The other globetrotters were livid. But for the first time they refuse to let themselves be steamrolled by ownership they were going to fight back. All probably all we won't. Pay Or we will play. In his living room in men leans towards the television set and squint S- searching the picket line, for somebody. NOPE NO METAL ARC course not. Over the next four weeks. inman rarely leaves this chair alternating between flipping through the sports pages and channels on. TV. News about the globetrotters fate comes fast and furious. Meadow Lark, gaps Gillette says, he'll hire a team of replacement players. The globetrotters then go to the teamsters union who worked for you arenas where the globetrotters often play. The trotters, no. The teamsters are valuable ally and the teamsters deliver. They say they'll shut down any arena that holds globetrotters game with replacement players, civil rights leader Jesse Jackson. An NBA star Bill Russell lend their public support on the players behalf their movement is now mainstream. After twenty seven days, the globetrotters strike comes to a close. Gillette agrees to double the players minimum salary and perhaps more importantly they get stock options, their owners now partial owners but still When inman here's the news the old timer leaps out of his seat. He's surprised at his own delight. He hadn't realized this strike had meant so much to him he gave his life to the globetrotters and it was tearing him up inside to watch the team unravel. But then the other size sixteen shoe drops. George Gillett announces he's pulling back from managing the team. Instead he's going to focus on acquiring TV and radio stations for his business in his place he hires a new president of the globetrotter organization a man named Stan gleason who the globetrotters have been doing business with for years because stand gleason is meadow lark lemons agent. INMAN sinks back into his chair and size is old enough to know what's coming next. The players may have won the battle, but they've already lost the war. With gleason running the show, it's only a matter of time before those who led the strike are fired. Metal Arc seizes control of the organization and George Gillett puts the globetrotters on the auction block to get rid of this now enormous headache. In men can feel his old friend, Abe Sapper Stephen Rolling in his grave. The globetrotters are no longer in control of their own fate. They've officially become just another accounting row on a corporate, ledger? It's nineteen seventy six about five years later George. Gillett and stand gleason sit in a conference room in the giants. Seventeenth. Story Manhattan offices of a media giant named Metromedia. Jalaleddin. gleason have been running the globetrotters for years and today they're staring across the table at Metromedia CEO and his small army of lawyers. Gillette's adrenaline mixes with his Fourth Cup of coffee he lives for this. The Wild West has shootouts New York City has corporate showdowns, and this high noon is the moment Gillette's been working towards since he bought the globetrotters selling them. In his mind, he survived the globetrotters unionizing survive nineteen sixties, civil rights, leaders labeling the team as an insult to black pride. He even survived Meadow Lark extracting exorbitant salaries from stand gleason. All because Gillett had an ace in the hole, he could play over and over again. Television. He nods to Stan and grins at the Metromedia. CEO. Stand switches off the lights. Gillette takes his best shot. You wouldn't be just buying a basketball team. In fact, basketball is the least valuable part of the globetrotters you're buying the number one entertainment brand in America. Stan Clicks on a sixteen millimeter reel to reel projector.

The corporate gunslinger is getting out of dodge just in the nick of time right after making a killing. Its September. Nineteen seventy eight two years later tonight, the globetrotters are in Madrid Spain the team is polishing off their pregame meal in their hotel licking the last morsels of off their forks meadow lark lemon sits apart from his teammates. He's saving room for his favourite victory meal lobster wash down with Dom Perignon, and tonight, he expects to order exactly that. The. Forty six year old salary is up to two hundred and twenty five thousand dollars a year almost ten times as much as most of his teammates but he's become a legitimate international celebrity and metal arc who now serves as player coach and the trotters number one box office draw still considers himself underpaid. That's why he sent a wire a few days earlier to the globetrotters president, his former agent, Stan gleason the message was simple. GimMe a raise to eight hundred thousand dollars are walking. He hasn't heard back but metal are knows what that means every time he demands a raise stan takes a few days to crunch the numbers and finds a way to pay the globetrotters need. That's why meadow Lark. So certain he'll be eating lobster tonight. globetrotters veteran Dallas Thornton crosses the room and opens the door. A bellhop has a telegram for metal. Meadow Lark tells Dallas he can read it aloud. Dallas. Opens the envelope, and fishes, out the message from? Stam? Meadow Lark. You are hereby relieved of your duties as player coach. Meadow Lark size go wide. Then he springs up snatches the telegram and reads it himself. He can't believe what he's seen. He turns and shouts at his teammates listen up. We're not playing tonight as of this moment were officially on strike. METAL ARC is ready to go to war all around him though players avert their gazes nobody willing to meet his is nobody showing any signs of support Finally Dallas approaches him and lays a hand on his shoulder lamb weeden get a telegram. He continues past metal arc and exits the room one by one, the other players follow. Meadow Lark is left all alone. He knocks away a plate and shakes his head in disbelief. He knows that Stan, gleason just made one of the biggest mistakes of his life. It was a power, move an attempt to send a message but overtime, all it's GonNa do is destroy the globetrotters. It's September nineteen ninety-three fifteen years since the globetrotters said goodbye to meadow lark lemon, it's safe to say the move hasn't exactly panned out tonight former Globetrotter Mannie Jackson sits in the stands at the Boston Garden alongside his two daughters. The arena is quiet. The globetrotters are playing for a quarter capacity crowd. Manny can smell it in the air nobody not even the players wants to be here. After sixty plus years of delighting fans around the world, the globetrotters are coming undone. Manny gazes around the Empty Arena, and then sinks down into his chair. He can't believe how far the once-mighty globetrotters have fallen. Many only played for the trotters from nineteen sixty to nineteen, sixty four. But his time winning on the grandest of stages sparked a driving desire to be a success. Post globetrotters he became the first and a group of high-powered black corporate executives acquiring and selling multimillion dollar companies a VP for honeywell. But tonight he's considering buying the Harlem globetrotters for himself. Manny's been following the team ever since he played for them. Back in Nineteen eighty-five, there was a glimmer of hope that the globetrotters might regain their former glory. When they sign Lynette woodard their first female player Woodard was a natural star and a media darling. But after an initial bump in attendance, the phenomenon faded and the globetrotters resume their steady drift towards irrelevance in the eighties. The trotters have plenty of issues these days. But in particular manny can't stand watching corporate America desecrate the teams legacy. After ownership transferred to the same conglomerate that owned the icecapades some misguided executives switch the globetrotters classic basketball uniforms to skin-tight figure skating SPANDEX. Now down on the court players perform long dusty. Gags, with zero enthusiasm. Saddest of all meadow lark lemon has come out of retirement at sixty two years old shuffling around trying to stir the ghosts of glorious past while wearing SPANDEX. With the NBA gobbling up their fan base and ticket sales dwindling some trotters started lashing out swearing at hecklers and flipping them the bird off the court. It was even as players were brought up on charges of weapons, violations, and sexual assault. It's all a far cry from the way. Manny remembers his time with the globetrotters. When he was a young man, the globetrotters represented a chance to gain respect and transcend racial divisions. It was the dream. But this current team feels like a nightmare. In the stands manny's eldest daughter turns to him and asks him you really used to be one of them. He sees a look in her eyes. He's worked his whole life to avoid his baby girl is embarrassed for him. Mannie Jackson checks, his rolex he has a meeting scheduled with the players at their hotel after the game. He Scans the court. Only, the red white and Blue Ball is familiar. He nods to the exit. Let's go. Right Ben Manny is more determined than ever to buy the globetrotters because he just decided he's going to shut them down.

It's September nineteen ninety-three the same night that Mannie Jackson sat in the stands at the Boston Garden and decided he changed the fate of the Harlem globetrotters. Right now manny. Elevator on the globetrotters floor of their Boston Hotel, the players are waiting for him in the suite at the end of the hall. Manny stops outside the door she runs through his talking points one last time. No more life on the road spend more time with your family. If you need job training, I can steer you in the right direction think of this as a fresh start. He tells himself he's doing them a service while doing himself one to heal by the team license out the merchandising rights and make a reasonable profit. After all, after decades of white owners taking home, the lion's share of the prophets he figures it's about time a black man finally got wealthy off the globetrotters. Mannie Jackson. Enters the hotel suite the players hush. They heard rumors he was coming nobody else but a former player would be able to set a face to face meeting like this one to announce a potential acquisition. Then again, nobody a former player would probably want any part of the globetrotters right now. They're fanned out around the room in t shirts and shorts. Meadow Lark reclines on a bed in a bathrobe with bags of ice on his knees, elbows and forehead. The atmosphere of soul sucking defeat hangs heavy in the room. Manny clears his throat. He tells them all together round. He begins his rehearsed speech in his low professional voice waxing philosophical about legacy and respect. Suddenly his voice catches. His eyes drift past the elder medal arc and settle on the young players they stare back at him eyeing his tailored brooks brothers suit is two hundred dollars shoes, his gold watch and wedding band. A gap tooth rookie raises his hand. You really used to be one of us. Manny's struck. It's exactly what his daughter asked just hours ago and all at once he realizes these boys are my son's. If the globetrotters are my legacy there my legacy, and if God bestows a legacy on you in this lifetime, you don't sell it. Legacy is priceless. YOU FIGHT FOR IT Many knows what he must do. Yes, he's going to buy the team, but he's not shutting it down. He's going to rebuild the organization, make wearing the red white and blue a source of pride. Again, he's going to save the Harlem globetrotters. But he can't do it alone. He needs the players to buy in. Many plucks up the basketball from the bed and spins on one finger. Listen up saving the globetrotters has to be a religion for us. If you don't want to join me get out of here. Now, if you guys are with me, I'll make you wealthy I'll make it popular I'll make it big. But. It's going to be a rough ride before it's over. He passes the ball to the gap toothed rookie. The young man catches it and passes it to the center. The center passes it to the forward forward to guard. The ball travels around the team, but there's no behind the back over the shoulder world-famous magic circle this time. Without words the trotters agree it's time to get back to fundamentals. The rookie flips the ball back to manny and as he gazes around the room, he can feel it. It's GonNa take work sweat a lot of time of frustration, but they can do it. They can bring back the Harlem globetrotters. It's February seventeenth two, thousand nineteen in Los Angeles Mannie Jackson. Now Eighty two years old and spry as ever leans out the open window of the staple center owners box. He looks out at the arena home of the Los Angeles Lakers and surveys the turnout for tonight's globetrotters. Game. Families fill the stands. In those stands a C. jubilant kids dance with the new Harlem globetrotters Mascot, globally. Planet Earth shaped head bobs to the beat as children perform. In their brand new Harlem globetrotters merchandise. Manny Leans back into the owner's box and thinks back to this morning when he gave his daughter in teenage grandson, the VIP tour everywhere the precocious young man turned. He was awestruck by the sights. The sounds the spirit of celebration. As he remembers the look of wonder on his grandson's face manny can't help but grin. The globetrotters his globetrotters have come a long way in the last twenty, six years. In nineteen ninety-three Manny's attempt to buy the organization almost fizzled out. He marched into the bank with an airtight business proposal, but the lone officer asked him, who else do you have with you? He knew he was really saying we don't care how many mega-deals you've brokered for Honeywell your one black man asking for a million dollar. Loan Gabriel. Angered but undeterred manny tapped into his rolodex of high-powered corporate executives. He put together the Mannie Jackson Associates Investment Group and bought the globetrotters for five point five million dollars. Overnight, he became the first African American with a controlling ownership of a pro sports team. But buying the team was the easy part. Now. You had to fix it. When the players arrived for training camp manny laid out new rules. Six Am wake up for a four mile. Run a practice before lunch afternoon classroom sessions to drill deep on media training globetrotters, African American history. Then another practice Jackson also instituted a one strike policy for troublemakers use drugs abuse alcohol womanizer. heckle Fan you're gone. Next many removed every last trace of the racially stereotype nineteen, thirty style joke gags that meadow lark lemon had kept in circulation. Soon. He quit his job at honeywell to manage the Globetrotters full-time Mr. Jackson was all in manny soon, pursued corporate sponsorships like a bloodhound. His first success was licensing globetrotters brand to the American hip hop apparel. Company Fubu. That summer throwback globetrotters uniforms were flaunted trendsetters in every major city in America. Then, another innovation in game microphones for each. Every player was a star and manny wanted every fan in the arena to feel connected to them the entire game. Slowly but surely, ticket sales crept back up word of mouth spread the globetrotters appeared on. Good. Morning. America Post postgame autograph sessions were bumped up from fifteen to thirty minutes to satisfy the growing crowds. Many. New The globetrotters probably weren't going to sell out Madison Square. Garden again. But for the first time in years, they were developing a strong dedicated fanbase. Then in two thousand two, the globetrotters were inducted into the basketball hall of fame. During the day ceremonies fellow in duct and basketball legend Magic Johnson admitted that his showtime Lakers borrowed from the globetrotters moves. But tonight here in the owner's box of the house that Kobe Shack Belt Manny. Isn't resting on his laurels after restoring the globetrotters respectability and profitability. Manny squinched down at the staple center court determined that tonight's exhibition will be even more perfect than usual because his grandson is peering out right beside them. The. Lights Dim. An electric sensation courses through the arena and through manny. This pre-game anticipation was his favourite part of suiting up some sixty years ago. Tonight Manny can feel the ghosts in the rafters a goose inman meadow lark. He can feel the joy in the stands is well, the fans excitement surging the globetrotters current roster dashes out from the tunnel cheese TNT highlight sweet lou to. The globetrotters begin their magic circle pre-game passing routine showing off the razzle dazzle they've performed for kings, popes and presidents nine decades ago. The globetrotters brought basketball out of south side Chicago gyms, and shared the game they loved with the world. Nine decades later, the circle remains unbroken. Manny feels a pat on his arm. He turns to find his grandson gazing up at him. You really used to be one of them. The young man asks Mannie shakes his head now. His grandson stairs back confused. Then, manny explains. I still am one of them. From one.

I'm In Love With That Song: Queen - 'Keep Yourself Alive'

"Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? That's just another episode of the I'm in love with that Song podcast just one of the many music theme shows you'll find here on the Pantheon podcast network on today's episode we're diving headfirst into keep yourself alive by Queen. My name is Brad Page and I am on a mission to discover what makes my favorite songs. So great each episode of this podcast I, pick a song that I love try to get a deeper understanding of what makes it work and you get to come along for the ride with me don't worry no musical knowledge or experience is required here. We're just going to do some serious listening. So get out your Cape, your crown and your Harlequin onesie because we're cranking up the queen with keep yourself alive. Keep yourself alive goes back to the earliest days of queen written by Guitarist Brian May. It was the first song he played for Freddie Mercury and drummer or Taylor in nineteen seventy. This was before Bass player John Deacon even joined the band they recorded the first version of it in September nineteen seventy-one along with four other songs that are often referred to as the de Lane Lea studios sessions that Demo version is pretty close to the final version that was released on their first album at least in terms of the structure and arrangement. But there are some differences though for example, the Intro is played on Acoustic Guitar with an Electric Guitar overdubbed. Let's listen to some of that. Original. Demo. Old Law. Know. How I. You started. Shopping. Burst. Bad. Brian May. Has Always said that he actually prefers this demo over the officially released version. He always felt that the demo had something special magic the just hard to recapture. Well, let's dig into the officially released version unlike the demo it's all electric guitars. One Guitar in the Left Channel. and. Now joined by a second guitar in the right channel. Both guitars have a phasing effect on them. It's pretty easy to get that sound now with a inexpensive guitar pedal but according to Brian May, this phasing was done by physically manipulating the tape much harder to do back then. Sounds like there's a third guitar there, but it's actually the base. John. Deacon has some kind of fuzz tone on his Bass Guitar. He continues with this sound for the rest of the intro. The base returns to a more traditional tone. Freddy enters on vocals for the first verse, his vocals and the Demos Seymour tentative not as commanding as the final version. Let's compare the two. Here's the demo. Ban. How I have on. Abington. Austin. And here's the final version. Minded. Interesting that on the official version, the vocals are more assertive, but the music is more restrained. Let's listen to the rest of the verse note, the different parts played by the guitars in the left and right channels. Now on this next line, listen to how they increase the level of reverb on one word superstar just to make that word pop. Now let's listen to Brian May's guitar along. There's a little our by Freddie in there. Let's play that again. There's that Fuzz base again, you can really hear it on the party plays at the end here. Enough. And let's just listen to Freddie's focus for a while. You can hear how the vocals were done in multiple takes so that they could overlap the end of each phrase. Well, our loved the million women in Bella Donna as an I had a million is brought to me on silver tray. Give me everything I need to feed my buddy and my so. Little big. That can be my go. In Times. Really love this part here keep on trying and get better. If Across Man. I. And let's hear the vocals on the chorus notice how Freddie's vocals are doubled only on the last line through the Same. Gene. Thank you. bye-bye shaken. I love that shake it at the end after the second chorus Roger Taylor gets to play a little drum. Solo. Now Brian gets to Solo. Let's hear Brian's guitar parts. Again, his orchestrated layered and harmonized guitar parts are a key element of the Queen's sound and this song shows they were part of the sound from the very beginning. A. There are a lot of little parts to this song at keeps unpredictable during this break Roger and Brian get a chance to take over the lead vocals though it's only for one line each. Time you. Better every. Logistic. Let's listen to their vocals again that's Roger Taylor singing the first line and Brian May answers with the second. Does. After that the base and the guitar climb up a scale. and. We're back for the final choruses. Let's listen to more of Brian May's guitar work here at the end. And there's some nice vocal work during these last choruses. Let's check that out. Wow. You take your time and. and. Keep. Yourself alive. Keep yourself but I. Take you. Me Satisfy Jesus. Shimazu. Cheap yourself. Okay. Let's put it all together and listen through to the end. Trump. Thank you. Keep yourself alive by Queen? Brian May said that when he wrote the lyrics, he meant them as ironic but once Freddie. Sangam. It took on a whole new meaning the song became kind of an anthem and it was a staple in their live set. They performed it at almost every show from nineteen seventy through nineteen eighty one. In, three minutes and forty seven seconds this song and capsule. So much of the Queen's sound, the Bravura vocal style, layered harmony guitars, the heavy riffs and studio wizardry Roger Taylor even gets to show off with a little drum solo. Everything that made Queen Special was right here on the very first track on their very first album. I saw Queen Live once July twenty third nineteen eighty two Boston Garden. A month after my high school graduation, it was a summer with big changes on the horizon as they always are for every high school graduate. It was a time of change for the band to this would be the last time queen toured in America. We didn't know at the time. How was just lucky I had the chance to see them and I'm lucky that you take the time to listen to this show and means a lot to me to know that you're out there listening.

LeBron James' Legacy + Max Loves TikTok

"I just believe and it's just me being it as purely basketball. I think the Celtics would have a better opportunity a better chance against the Lakers a big girl up there and Shakes the last guy, shows you're if you're fabulous don't get why is my mouth off? All right back with another episode of the said you Maxwell podcast. I guess it's the first offseason addition right Max. I guess. This is official. Now that the Los Angeles Lakers are your NBA champion 2020 NBA champions in case you I mean Max, I know you boycotted the the NBA Finals so and you can get into why you did that. But at least the basketball Gods gave us that game 5 right? Well, I think the basketball get guys gave us the completion of the NBA season. That's the thing. That's that's that's the point that you know, and was it fair and all the other dog. Everybody played on the same restrictions over there. So, you know Lake positive test too and and the players did what they were supposed to do and it was a testament to the players off to you know, the the owners the governors and to you know, the NBA itself how this how they played in the bulb and now things are so successful and what you after a while you didn't even think about it being in the bubble just you just watching games and I thought that was what was so cool about the fact that you felt like you just watching games and you know with no crowd and they tried to have crowd noise, but I think they did the excellent job. Yeah, I mean the appearance of it. We all knew that was going to take some getting used to but when you look at the level of basketball like the excitement and the the games that we saw I don't think we could ask for a better ending, you know that it was such competitive basketball and then we saw individuals really sparked things, right? I remember back to Da Nang Neutral or or TJ? Warren? Remember when that came out of nowhere Damian Lillard. I mean the list goes on and on I mean to see all these guys just put on a show and put on these epic performances. I think it's just made it all worth. I mean we're going to enjoy we have enjoyed that we enjoyed that now I think the biggest thing, you know, since we're going there is what's going to be the next wage. Yeah, right. You know, how are you going to do this going forward? Are you a master players go into hibernation again for 3 months. That's not happened. I don't think that's going to have one. How are you going to do it? I think if you go with no crowds, I think that has to be the the initial it's not the crowds don't have anything additional Target, right? I mean, that's the way that that's the way baseball is doing it. That's the way football is doing it. Right? Well how they cam getting home. I mean, you know crowd they're afraid of window crowd there. Well, yeah, but not every arena is doing the same standard. It's not not it's not the crowd. All these type of teams is not the crowd. It's more about the Players Club. Their conduct and how they're handling things. I'm not saying cam was wrong with something he did but when you're able to introduce other elements into a player's life, those things are you know, that they're bound to happen. What the NBA did they took all those elements out? They took every every possible element which could go bad. They took them out but you can't get these guys know you can't but that's what I'm saying. It's going to be what is going to be the next step that's going to be the biggest thing. What's going to be the next step and when will the season start again? When will the draft go off or how many trees are going to go out all that starts? They need to figure out the CPA. I think that's what it is. You know, that's what the NBA is sort of that's the next step. I guess the answer your question. I think that the dog is going to just manufacture that they're going to probably try to stay at that same salary cap. So they don't piss the players off or or vice versa, you know, Anthony Davis Santa someone your age. Lord three or whatever it might be so there's only probably try to stay artificially stay in that same range, but it's going to be interesting to see the day that they come back said the trays that have to happen even the draft, you know for me it's and for you right now, it's it's a hard time because when the leaves turn red and orange all these different because I live opposite it's time to start getting ready for a NBA basketball right now. I am up 2 and 1/2 weeks into a vacation which in fact even know which we've always known. You know what that means right man. It's going to be here. Yeah, we we not going to be in order to be hibernating but we don't even know when it's when we're coming back. That's the biggest thing and so I I just think it's the the next step and the NBA did a great job. What is going to be there follow-up what's going to be there on court to this? I mean, I've heard people speculate saying well, Going to be a mini bubble that you're going to be playing in and your or you can play for you know, two weeks or whatever. It is and one area the East and the west and off but you know, I am very curious to see what the the braintrust come up with. You know with this enemy. You know, I think about think about no basket much to ask these guys but you think of and do that again. I believe it is without you have to do something if you're going to play again. I don't think you're going to have them you're not going to have men in every Arena are you because you did not realize Resort though. Are you have the pleasure of travelling? I mean, it's just weird. Yeah, the the Boston Garden nobody being there. But how about Madison Square Garden, you know, nobody there nothing going on at Madison Square Garden, right? I mean the economic turn this pandemic is had on the on the world and on the sports world is is just unbelievable. When you think about even being down at the Garden right now all the places which are closed. And you know, you see I see advertisement on the Garden Sand June 2021, you know, somebody's going through somebody's tornado coming some concerts coming. Will it will it be like that by then? Hopefully it'll be replaced the Fleetwood Mac and be like a whole weekend this year and that got pushed back off. I don't know, you know the way people to checking out right now to see a fleeting moment where Mac is still around that would be interesting. I mean, it's just ditches the new Tik Tok videos, but shout out to her though. We're not funny. So they're song was so they don't talk. You know what it's on the tree. Yeah. I saw that one hundred and seven hundred saw the guy drinking cranberry cranberry juice, but that was funny. But the judges funny, this is the first time I actually looked at some Tik Tok today. I was just going to ask you when you you start looking at today. I looked at it today and you knew what the guy with the Camry and birth. Favorite world is all over the news. But my favorite thing was in Tik Tok was you know, telling your Dad shut up and then seeing his reaction like that. Like the mom would say something to the effect and the kid and tell my mom just shut up and the dance in the what the hell so now I can see the I can see why people look at that stuff in that way. But there was one black father he would like stop playing with me, you know, go to stop playing the damn tick tock tick tock tick tock whatever y'all seeing right now. Hey, brother get out here with that. So so so they record their voice saying it to the father and no no. No they reaction is that you and I are sitting here and you're just say you're the dad the mom is here and the mom will yell out to the child saying yeah, Jimmy come, you know, come take the trash out and then Jimmy from upstairs. Come by and say Mom just shut up. Would you and the dad does eating here go put the heck that was hysterical. We watching that it was it was a stereotypical watching this. So when you going to get your videos up, let me find out maximum to make a song with a tank door. I ain't gonna go viral video, you get the Beamer. I got you this so many ideas you can do with the guys if a guy can get that drinking cranberry juice. I'm sure I got more ideas than that. Exactly and he got a car they gave my game a truck and all the cranberry juice has nothing to do with, you know demographics or younger kids thing man. You can get in there too. You can do something. You can go viral. Well what you got what Trump said Tik-Tok was no longer going to be here more of a reason I think for you to contribute thoughts done. We're done with this. Tik-Tok e that's a common this thing you got the road trip to you want to where you going? You won't home, right? No, I'm going my daughters having her having a half off. Little girl so going to be the first my first granddaughter so excited about that. I'm going yeah, I'm drowning. Yeah, I'm driving the Cholla to see that so I think that's going to count kind of cool and funny, but man, I'm telling this this whole basketball thing. If not happening in the wintertime crazy right is absolutely crazy. You ever not had basketball in the winter time. I can't for me. I don't remember it one time when one or two times when it was NBA was striking that time we had a we didn't play off a game about the first of till maybe round about Christmas the little bit before Christmas but the NBA was on strike. We doing 98 something. Mm. I don't even know not only really really funny thing. Was that something that you're starting to like January? Yeah. Yeah. The one was in Christmas day. Yeah, which I thought helped us out. Most of the other they could use that room better on the other side. So I think that yeah, I've been there before where we haven't done anything, but that's absolutely crazy man. Yeah, man, it's wild but let's get let's get into rugby finals Max. I know you'd like to you know distract me from this topic so much but you know, the Los Angeles Lakers are the Champs again. It's 17217 is not enough maxed. Yes. Oh man. Yeah. I am so mad I couldn't watch and I was just so many boycotted. I was so mad. I was so mad because I knew what was going to happen new Miami played great against us and they deserved the win but then they got all those guys who play great against the Celtics winning peed the bed against against the latest and I think the Celtics win the game and a much better opponent, I think so it's going to be them. Yeah. Yeah. I think they could have been see they I initially I thought that well before birth. NBA Finals, but after seeing them struggle against the Miami Heat, they wouldn't they wouldn't be able I don't know how many Davis that's the biggest reason in my opinion. The day was we've experimented bio through us around the way he did. Imagine what Anthony Davids with the davises in a power player though. He's more of a finesse player. Yeah, no question. But like even though so you don't look at him. I mean, there's some except done himself instead of a good job against him in the two games that they played a b l a so and then went there too. And you remember they didn't even pay them had there was incredible 10,000 so far my favorite Tatum. Yeah. So I just I just think the Celtics I just believe and it's just me being that as purely basketball. I think the Celtics would have a better opportunity a better chance against the Lakers might not have been them, you know, but I think they would have given them a lot more because of the guys that you would have had to have guarded wage. And then man, I'm still going to look at that at layup that they're going. Hey with Miss man. Just yeah, you're like still holding off and use the conference pilot. Look at you took the reason you're doing and because the Miami need laws, that's why yeah. Yeah, because things went wrong in that so you're gonna go if you going go win it going win it for some that don't you know and naturally was you think about that serious really wasn't as competitive know it wasn't is the only saving grace 05. Yeah. Well it was the Lakers thought it was the Lakers series to lose that that's what really was disappointed by it was theirs to lose and you know, if they they played their best game then the other team was gonna have a tough time. I mean once they lost game for I was like three one that's that stuff. You're not going to be able to come back from that. But I knew in game six that LeBron will go off. I knew this, you know, why, you know One on Game 7 a.m. You know the ongoing debate the ongoing discussion when we were talking MJ vs. LeBron has always wanted to play Game 7 NBA final so I think there's something to that is that what you mean by that name game? Seven know I know but I didn't want to game seven probably tougher than Michael did right, but I think people people knocking for them. How are you going to not how you doing? Knock-off bron James forgetting to game seven and beating Golden State in Golden State. I'm with you especially cuz you were losing three one and that was that was that's what made that's what put him in my life my list that that shot him up like 7 notches took him up in the pantheon when you think about right how they won that game and how they may go to the state being there with and they did it three times in a row which which nobody gave them a chance to do. I guess what I'm trying to say is people always going to reach and try to say, oh, well this one off With three things he can never do what Jordan did you know what I mean? So it's like let's let's be honest, you know guys some space. I know you guys listening it. Let's just say hypothetically if a broad goes on and win four in a row, no one's going to say he's the greatest wage rate. There's nothing he can do to going to change people's minds. I don't know. I think there's a good possibility. It's going to break the all-time scoring record of the NBA off if he goes in the way his team is formulated right now. They're talking about a couple of guys that they might get gallon are he's talking about. Hey, you know what? I'm not chasing the money anymore. What I want is a championship game. He might go with the Lakers. So the Lakers could be a stack team win the championship their favorite right now, you know in Caesars right now to come back and win it. So I'm not quite as much as people hate LeBron Gotta Give the devil his due and I did that when he played that back-to-back 48-minute game against the Celtics and went and that was dead. Amazing to me wasn't it was just a them and brown and and oh man, they play gray and LeBron James played 48 minutes in two consecutive games had to me that just that took him to a whole nother level in my opinion from a basketball standpoint 48 minutes in a playoff games back to back in with 34 35 years old something like that. So so I don't think at the end if we look at it he could he could he could he could be to go if he's not big old now, he could be to go when you think about the number of championships. You can win the points that he's going to score he's going to be in so many he's going to be so many categories. It's going to be unbelievable, right? You been to a long you think about assist you think about points you think about blocked shots you think and he seen you know, look at the people who came in with him how those people are gone now exactly, you know. Yep. Carmelo yes are passing goes and once you start passing guys who aren't active and you hear there's going to touch you mean you've already separated. Just yeah, I mean the guys who got drafted with him who came in you know that you know who came in with LeBron James at that time, you know, so, I mean, it's just I don't know man. There's no I'm with you. I agree. I know that we're on the same path. So I want to bring this up. I'm not a hater. I'm I'm a congratulate and if you're a Celtic fan where the green right? That's what it is. Like Celtic fans. Don't they bleed green, but they also know Sports and not like, you know as much as people wanted to hate on a rod when it came in. It was a great player wide, you're born I would say when you get booed and you're at somebody else's placed me relevant. Yeah, I mean, you know, they they born you know, but but then or, you know bleeping Boone or whatever they you know, They they they're not moving the radar you moved. The radar is when people acknowledge you while you're playing during that particular time, right? Cuz you're a threat cuz you are a threat exactly.

Anthony Davis is arguably one of the greatest players, you know? Yeah sure. He had that help but LeBron is still one and two, you know what I mean and LeBron anything Davis meet with Harry that to take about half the day of sampling Davis was down in New Orleans and couldn't barely could get that team to the playoffs. Yeah. So he needed he needed Batman, right? He is Robert he needed Batman to go along with it. Right and you know, so I just I'm you know, there's no kicking him. He's a great player. But LeBron James is you know, clearly showed, you know and talk about yanis all they want to but the best player is still in the league right now over the last we're fifteen sixteen Seventeen years. Pretty much LeBron. James has always been top five if you if you hadn't been privy was always been the top three and now, you know every year he's like number one. Number one and everybody thought this was the year. I was thinking like, okay. Going to fall off that pedestal issue you gather fall down LeBron. James was the best player in basketball this year.

They use it all the time back in the seventies. I tracked it back back to less less that she fucking bugged you that much. So you actually found the wikipedia page on avocado. She reams.

Yeah like you gotTa make pancakes. She got a straw and a fucking some cornflakes. I'm the champion Fuck. Am I going to do this like cookies supposed to be relaxing wonderful thing that you do for yourself or somebody else and they just made it this fucking stressful them in the weather channel they went.

Sheila took over the whole world has a Rachel Rachel Ray. I remember I was with this woman at the time going out of. There's something about her. She goes. She's just nothing.

Yes he was the first person everybody used to have him in the hand and it was growing but the toothpick in it and I was like Oh my God this is so sanitary terres chief visionary. She's a Steve Jobs fucking cheese samples back to the weather channel where we're getting close to lose in one man when they go out there and the storms like that and they put themselves up positions and then they have to say they don't do this or you shouldn't be outside but I we had a two by four flying by the last storm. Viral video missed the big Rockstar over there. The weather child forgot his name. Well I think as as climate change or whatever the fuck you're supposed to call it now continues yeah the storms are going to get more and more severe within there'll be more and more channels covering which will make them. Can we get these people closer to what's going on right. They'll sign a waiver and they'll do some sort aww sad thing.

They're looking at them. Like is this guy going to eat me exactly because it's a snake and shit people think the snake doesn't have well. It's a reptile problem yeah. It was making sense. Who is that on the wall? There see no one can figure it out. You want to take guess. This is an ongoing thing cast. Is that you that's David Lee Roth Lever Not oh that's just a bad picture. He's pulling his face in trying to hit a scout like a captain's hat on and then he's got a sherve still sheriff's star on the hat. He's a Messner as opposed to what that guy said. Some of the best onstage everyone time into Rosa where he was living back here in New York we want and he goes do look at this video and it was David Lee Roth he had on a pair like the skin-tight skin-tight like pink spandex. Remember those boots from the seventies of ski boots that look like woolly mammoth care he had that over that he had like ski goggles on and no shirt and was on like daytime T._v.. With like Van Halen Elena something it was doing this little sorta dance jump move towards and Cameron he had the Mike Down by Dick and it was just like just like put it made sense right no but he's he's one of the best front men he of all fucking time David. He can't fuck with David he a great radio over the years we've had him on and I had him on the show with DOC Gooden Dot Gruden's talents insane fucking drug story that would bring you to tears and David Lee Roth on the show like thinking. It's the greatest thing. Going out right right that's good into spilling his guts out to us pretty much nervous breakdown telling us as drugstores rob is just not reading the room. Hey one eight ball guy so how's it being back in New York there Billie Billie Burke. It's lonely.

Yeah it sucks. That's one of the things they don't tell you about getting older but <hes> yeah so that brought it down. If you guys want to go back to avocado so you're crews moving on there just in just like I just don't know they've become successful like you know each each like like level. There's people that move on or just say fuck it. I'm not doing this anymore right but like there's only so long that you can stay in like the same like place I think before you you Kinda lose it. We go solely in saint right so I think I don't know it's just it's different but I tell you this all of these <hes>. I saw that Mark Norman last night Oh my God is in funding spent a while since I've seen a guy where it was like like I always picture them crushing on Letterman those jokes yeah and I was picturing Dave laughing going like I. It's been a while since I've seen a guy that could like you're watching this set late night at a club and it's like this is killing late night at a comedy club in this also kill Hill <hes> late night talk show. I mean that's how tight his jokes are like. It's been a while since I've seen a joke writer like that. He's he's well on his way to. He's doing more and more of that and and you're playing the garden and again Yup incredible success. Obviously it's weird. I got a good story for when I was. I was back home and I was doing the Boston Garden Right. I did three of these things. She's on the only did three back date guys like Dang cookie at the same road schedules like the Celtics right so I mainly do theater so I did. I did the forum than I did the Boston Garden so Boston Garden. That's where I'm from so I got all kinds of friends and family pad the stats there so those fucking jam packed are doing it in the round and Phil when you backstage going. This is like a fucking cartoon. This is ridiculous. This doesn't make sense people up top gonNa feel like they got their mind. Having a basically a panic attack while virzy was on killing Tony via forget who is on and then my phone rings that I see it's my wife and I'm like this is why I married her. She's going to be like I love you. You deserve this go out. There have a Grisham remember to have fun. I picked the phone up and she was crying hysterically. He's like yeah I was. I thought there was something wrong with a kid like what he goes. No no nothing bad I just saw stars poured. It was so good sitting there like I felt like it was in a Sitcom fucking. Do you understand we just did to me. I go hunting. I gotTA show and she's like Oh my God are you go on stage and it was like yes and then she was like laughing through crying which was so adorable because I'm sorry you have a good time but I just walked out on stage told that story and got a big laugh and I was on my way so you know start to that. <hes> you know I'm a fan of your podcasts. Obviously she's really good with you see you. Don't put her on a lot but when you do it's now that I have now we have the kid and everything I mean somebody's got to watch the kids so that that kind of killed her coming on and <hes> and also you know just ridiculous level of adjustment to your life like <hes> so we've been talking about stages all they don't tell you that when you have a kid like how much that what that does to your relationship with your spouse where it's like you guys go from this this looking at each other to you just start fixated on the kid and not even in a bad way but if you guys don't check in with each other you just start fucking drifting apart and we got to the point we would just like passing each other in the hallway south. Let me just somebody late night on the street. You know what I mean. He just given the obligatory hello so we had to kind of like then as now now we go on dates but then we go on dates and like ten minutes was shown pictures of our daughter you see this one and we're like this. This is normal right but we really have to make an effort to be like. Hey you still cool with me. You know I'm a few years ahead of you. In that game it gets way better but I totally relate to that because because your daughter's only not even I know you're still you guys are still in it like she doesn't move around a lot yet. She's walking but she's staying in one room more or less but it's definitely nice. You're you have started the chase chasing so now it's it's like you know the deals they walk into a room and it's just like gravitate to whatever can fucking hurt you got all these toys that are all safe and they're like oh an outlet finger in it yeah you go in there. They're playing with the chord and they got it around their neck. It was like I left a half a second. That's your whole job. Yes so make sure yeah so you know it's just something that like yeah me and my wife used. We used to be that couple. We I loved it. 'cause people like you guys laugh all the time me and my wife and my girlfriend use left we inspire people and then we kind of became it was it was bad. It was rough for a little bit. We would just like what we used to laugh like. You got to give yourself a break though yeah no but now we are two years. Forget it yeah. I know we got it. We see we kind of got the back where I know you know what I do is. I just stopped fucking arguing. I'm just like done with it and whatever she tells me to do. I just do so now. We're getting along great so I'm happy with that but this underlying resentment I have when I'm just Cadillac Oh so basically if we do everything that you want yeah like we're GonNa get along great and there's all this fucking shit out there about all these fucking women just every day just like just bitch moaning and complaining about how fucking difficult their lives are in America which which is so funny. What are you look up the kid that had to so your blouse together better position in the world know the level that they're talk? I mean strays. My favorite thing was one of those two women. I'm not going to say their name. They got arrested at that fucking thing. Don't say that nature and they come walking out and they're doing the black power like they're like. They're black like you're at the sixty eight. Olympics went slavery. It's like you're a blonde white woman. So what are you doing. It's just fucking like everybody's so free to get in trouble. Get fired that everybody yeah but then every whispers until was that what the fuck was that it's great because <hes> in other places the world you're sending your eight year old off to a some sweat factory with a lunch or deliberately maiming him so we can get a fucking ruble or something but as a Latin person you know I grew up with a person of color in this culture this current climate climate navigate avocado toast. I'll tell you one thing built growing up people. I experienced real racism real straight to me straight up. You know your speak your this your that your that the old archie bunker stuff yeah the archie bunker stuff. Everybody was the way these call me. Hey Taco overuse this Cuban like I'm doing your favorite Taco. I'M GONNA swallow. Let's go and being the restaurant business I mean. There's not lower than that. I started from the bottom dish rush. Nothing bothered me then as much as it does now as people that have never experienced racism explaining to me what I need to be offended about. Oh here we go. It's it's it's mind numbing. They don't realize how do is there was a there's a thing and we'll not smart enough to understand that you're being insulted. You need any white to explain it so enjoying. It's worse than you call me being derogatory. It's it just feels like extreme took a sociology class I sir let me re explain explain to you what I'm doing to you like everyone. I worked with French chef. Who Literally told me he's like well? You're you're Latin. God made you small because you're you're. You're supposed to go in and dig ditches. What your culture is your your bread culture? We're not we're culture by choice. This is how he's talking to me right. Was He wearing a beret veto. Let me love this yeah yeah. He was crazy. I mean old seventies. French chef hated everybody but I stuck it through and that guy went up to bat for me when I when I when I went through all his bullshit and he treated me better than any fucking Spanish guy who would have ever in the world he he went to bat he got me and I was like an officer and a gentleman. He really helped me out but now everybody makes placer shit. My grandmother wants to make it's exhausting and I was talking about you before. got here about comedy in general and how you you're more or less escaping the whole P._c.. Bullshit mean-spirited escaping it because there's nothing to escape what they do is. I've learned through. All things comedy started this podcast. It's network right how few people you need to tweet at the same time to start trending right so you're really seeing this. They they're misreading where this whole political correctness people just trying not to get in trouble. They don't agree with it so they're misreading thing like where people are the same way. They misread this last election I think today I don't know dude. I got like if if you're a Democrat I got a bad feeling because all of these fucking people like all of these celebrities that go out there trying to rally alley people to vote blue. It's like you're being broadcast. Where people in red can see? It'd be like if you were fighting a war and you're going to do a surprise attack on Japan and they're watching you talking about it so I don't understand how they don't think that a bunch of people do my fucking guy driving from the airport on folk no fucking red voting fucking and it's just like I don't know how like all you do is is somebody in the public eye telling people what to vote for all like people <music> are smart. They know who they're going to vote for. All you're doing is just catching the attention of some guy in a white van with writing fucking seats who just wants to do something crazy. That's the only guy that you're gonNA. You're changing him in that. He's now going to go after you well. There's a couple of things it's an insult to my intelligence when the celebrities come forward and say you gotTa vote basically what they're saying don't you you gotTa Vote Democrat Right. That's what they're saying. Yeah it's non. Somebody asked me to do this nuts. It's like somebody asked me to do that. I I don't get involved. I'm not GONNA sit dude. I flunked everything in high school. Who the fuck tell people what to vote for and they go? No this is nonpartisan. It's like have you the people that you have on this. This is not like if I stand anywhere near half of these people look at their fucking twitter feeds feeds yeah. I'm not fucking stick in my head on that shop until I'm just insulted I I would rather them. Say We all want you to vote Democrat instead of like you need a vote because you're an American did that last election so now trying to be as like it's really important to get out and vote and it's like yeah I understand that what else you know. Oxygen is probably one of the more important gas the atmosphere and you WanNa make sure that you keep breathing. Oh thank you fucking weird lead on a Sitcom. We live in New York. Vote truly doesn't matter. It's so democratic that I know we're good. We're good in this state but in Jersey vote for Cuban Felon or Republican billionaires just like I don't care it doesn't matter no L. But no but I was going to give you a compliment though because you're you're more or less skating it because you're calming so damn honest and I know there's nothing malicious behind. 'cause people always go you get away with this getting away. A plot implies implies that I meant something malicious. I don't I'm up there. I'm a fucking moron. I don't read and I'm up there to make you laugh right and like in some people you know you drive across their front lawn. They get upset even though you've been driving over. Everybody's fucking yards the whole time this just you know those those they're fucking babies and you know nowadays you know you need controversy to to make something sell so you can do a show one thousand people in nine hundred ninety nine enjoy it but if one in person didn't that becomes the story the person who fucking did and it'd be like I got a fucking partial standing ovation. One person walked out if I was a fucking president that was my approval rating. I would be the most popular president ever like this. This is this is not why do we focus on the one person money money yeah but that's what I told me because then people stop because there's a million channels people watch people yelling at each other. That's what the fuck happened at E._S._P._N.. P._T._I.. We had two people were actually friends and they were like they would get heated and they distilled. Hold that down to people like people yelling about sports and E._S._p._N.. Wanted this horrible fucking period where they would have they would just skip bayless. It'd be like he that guy would literally argue. If you said you need air to breathe he'd be like all argue the other side side. It's Kinda happy. He's not there anymore. I figured like after a while he's guys I can't fuck do this anymore. I saw video. Let's skip bail skip arguing with skip so they made so it was literally under on the same side it was it's a different day singing opposite. He sat in his giant House watching that cackling echoes executive healing tired of answering the whole house with the point. I told you guys is years ago when they did this to the radio guys where it was it was always the minority they got the radio shows fired. It wasn't a massive majority. It was like Holy Shit. We gotta get rid of this certain show. It was always one fuck in small group of people that had all the power and I Yeltsin the executives like we ignore those idiots. They don't mean anything in the in the long run. That's starting to happen with comedy a little bit well. That's well. Fortunately we don't make money for a corporation. If we made money for corporation we would all be fucked. We do do away with the promoters but like corporations are like if one nickel is going to roll out the door like but the whole Colin Kaepernick thing with the N._F._l.. At first they were supporting trying to be progressive and then all the racists who are watching it who made it about you know fucking Iraq and Afghanistan even though they kept saying this is about police brutality and Iraq. It's like nobody is saying your brothers. In Iraq. You're listening. You're arguing different argument right right but those people stop watching and Blah Blah Blah so they actually sided with with ignorance and racism and in a way because but they were doing it for financial reasons yeah so they like all right. Let's squash these five or six people that are doing this and these racists people come back back by fucking whatever a Mitch right but whatever side you're on money's the life that's what in addition no and all of these that's nothing to is. That's why if you notice like you know that there's a lot of comics say crazy shit but all you need a certain amount of followers before what you save becomes offensive because they're not going to waste the time hitching their wagon to somebody that they're not going to get traction for. They'd much rather do it when you become like a name yeah so the genius of my career is I've never been the guy so I maintain you know. I'm never in the strategy. I'm Donna was the troposphere rocket is the one that we breathe down here so all of those people up there and that's why I don't do those fucking politic politic things you know standing there yeah guy yet. He told me that one time I got in trouble for for answering tweet I was judging competition. The Food Network and someone tweeted that was racist that the black person didn't win.

Oh yeah help and no you should said the black person's dish sucked you should have said because the taste better decide what you really should do. Is You shouldn't answer. That's what I learned. That's what I know. You know what I what I learned the hard way. I hit it back over. I have been saying this and everything whenever people like because now they literally ask skew these fucking career any questions like running for office. I'm like I'm not required to answer any of this so they'll be like so. What do you think about Louis coming back? Oh He's gone.

I don't know I'm going to leave that one alone because you're you're only allowed to have one opinion on so many topics now. which is you know this opinion of which is funny? It's allegedly this left left kind of thing but like they're acting like like the way that they always say that the extreme right acts where they just like. You know think what we think say what we say if you don't we're going to destroy you and it's just like it's that that's where 'cause I'm liberal but I'm not like that like I don't know what the fuck that is so I mean like you know I I don't know so I I run into Louis.

Pretend they didn't know about it. They weren't sending these guys off to do it again to somebody else we're on on your show and like somebody from the archdiocese of New York called in and I remember he was explaining it away and like how it's is these things are anomalies and it's not a usual thing and we we we really and I was just sitting there livid. Did you lying mother fucker. I'm GONNA go home. I'm going to write the most scathing satirical love song between a priest and altar boy. I'm going to bring the fucking Catholic Church to its knees. It did not work that was bill donahue by the way I remember. I remember that day like it was yesterday. That was Catholic League that was Bill Donahue who had a real problem with us. Having you know the couple have sex at Saint Patrick's cathedral wait so we were the inspiration for that song. I think I wrote it after after hearing him like or no kidding about how you know this never happens like everybody's rolling their eyes like yeah. This happens all the time because we're just fess up about it. Stop trying to cover it up right on so anyway. Here's my love Song between a priest Nice to know to deepen prayer my cross to Chinese upon floor temptations of the Catholic priest easy to ignore but I can control myself Irib smash sold through one small sheep among my flock stole the shepherd shelter to confess your scenes to me you will grace of God inside Maric till Sunday men so babbel eye catching him in my view so I closed my eyes but there he lies spreadeagled loan see him.

Oh my God that was so much fun my old friend Bill Bird fuck. It did well my my brother. I was intimidated by Bill Burr. Bill Burr is intimidating. He was absolutely got nervous like the first time I talked to you. I felt the same originally <hes> over the years being bill burr there was one time bill admitted it finally on the show he goes the first time I saw you up. I looked in your eyes. I know that look and we've always had this weird weird understanding that we would. We wouldn't push each other's buttons. That's where we're kind of similar in a way I tell you this is the first time I saw you guys together so I don't know your history really with him but you guys really look like like real friends like you guys talk the way I talk with my friends I mean we <hes> we got like like my real friends. Not like Mike Sappho. Yeah I mean I just like it doesn't know you guys really definitely friends. I I mean we weren't like hang out. Friends sounds like a bunch of the other people but we definitely got along did some great stuff for the radio show in the past and we always kept in touch and I was always I remember the day. He told me he was moving to L._A.. He just knew he had to get out to L._A.. To make things happening happened he was doing very well in New York and said do I gotta get out there and I thought he would go for a month or two and man was I wrong. You went out there and just flourished now. He's got helicopter pilot and he's he's pretty he's pretty close to eight listerman. Oh yeah you now so he's a he's a he's really funny. Like people say he's a comic's comic yeah. He's really smart yeah and I was really cool like you know it's still checks out comics. He's talking about Mark Norman and stuff. That was already cool. I I was trying to explain to them that you know he <unk> skating through all this garbage this mean-spirited thing where now comics going after other comics for being mean spirited or that's hateful you know funny is funny. That's we come from that that world if it's funny it's that's it. That's all you should worry about but not in this new world of comedy and I was trying to explain that to bill the one of the reasons he skates is because he sort of has this. I don't give a fuck attitude but he does. He does give a fuck and he worked really hard at his craft but he also is so damn honest with his comedy that people will accept that you know what I'm saying. They know they're not looking at a phony up there. They know that that they're looking at someone. That's pretty special that really knows how to breakdown society in general and what's going on in this crazy world of ours and they will accept some some of the harsher stuff because a it's incredibly clever and incredibly funny and incredibly honest. You got those three things you know then all this P._c.. Culture crap. They can't taught you the kid touch you but one one thing there's so much the culture so small this P._C.. Culture if you see the amount of people on twitter there actually outraged and it's just ridiculous yeah. It's really ridiculous. Even when ideal was the troll you know once you once you go big fan or something and I've met a couple of them yeah and they're just just nothing. You know what I mean like. It's they have these giant personas on on on social media than you meet them. You know what I mean. It's like as soon as you realize you can't fight. Those people like I said in an earlier podcast. It's like fighting with a ghost. You know it makes it way more okay but there's certain things that trigger me like that. I have to say something I have to like when when when there's someone that doesn't no me or does it no opie and is like he's GonNa Break Your Heart Lake unlike wit.

I have those assholes from the past really really set something for fourth and people just bought into it on fucking believable man you know that yeah I didn't get along with a a few people from the old radio show yes but I also gotten along with a ton of fuck and people get the same shipment seem to break your heart. Your grown man the groom don't even have a heart right between right and when we have issues which is very rare we talk it out and we discuss it. How many times have I said Hey Carl?

What's going on everybody? Welcome into I take. Thank you so much for joining us. Stephen a Smith Max Kellerman. I'm Molly Rose Mike. Greenberg just finish get up. He's joining us as well clearly. We're going to be talking about MJ. And of course greeny you covered him and the Bulls in Chicago. So can't wait for your perspective as well gentlemen were all excited for the DOCU series. That starts this Sunday on ESPN. Well Michael Sat down with Robin Roberts on in an exclusive interview. Let's share that with you and then we'll react. Take a listen. Here's how how how's the family doing. How are you and your loved ones with all? That's going on around the world these days. How are you guys doing well? We're we're blessed. Obviously chance spend a lot of time together. So I'm down here in Florida with with two kids in stay in contact with my other. Three kids via the default. But my family's doing well mom brothers sisters everybody's doing well so we're very blessed especially with what's going on in the world look at heart soon. Our prayers go out to all the tragedy families. That are doing this this this this unbelievable tragedy scan happening to American to the world to the world and thank you for that and it's something that people feel and they're looking for a distraction if you will and it's great that this series has been moved up it was supposed to debut later but people were just clamoring for for something to give them inspiration and hope and this docu series really does is chronicles that final championship run. That final time together with the Bulls. Mike what do you remember most about that final year? What was it trying year We all we're trying to enjoy the U.K. Knowing that it was coming to an end our hoping that the beginning season basically started when Jerry Krause Tocqueville that he can go eighty two we. You would never get the chance to come back and knowing that I was. I'm married myself to him. You know. Obviously if he wasn't going to be coached then you know. Obviously I wasn't gonNA play. So Phil started off the year by saying this is the last dance and and we played it that way. You know so mentally just. Kinda it tugs at you. Throughout the course of the year you know but that this had to come to an end but it also focus to make sure we end it right so I mean Sad is it sound. At the beginning of the year we try to rejoice in enjoyed year and finish it off the right way and it was quite a year and the Docu series really profiles that and also goes back and we see a young Michael Jordan. I love seeing your mother Seeing her doing so well. And when you're at North Carolina like a Typical College Kid. You wrote her a letter and you were apologizing for the phone bill and asks me her send stamps. What did you learn about yourself during those college years? Michael that stayed with you well. I think that it's a little different today. I mean it quite frankly. I had a phone bill. That was probably sixty dollars or a little less and I only had twenty dollars in my account. So I mean and the thing then you know people are GonNa Learn and kids laughed about it when they when they see it but we use postage stamps back in those days where I ask my mom to send me postage stamps. I mean looking at the video. And you're GONNA see a lot of things that people tinley forgot that life was this way. I mean you know we didn't have instagram. We didn't have twitter. So I mean you had to live life as it came and each day you precious -Ly Protected and you learn the education aspect spending time with friends and family via the phone. It was actually in presence. And you wrote letters you know so I mean to me as probably the most refreshing thing that my mom she kept all my letter so it's somewhat embarrassing but yet it's repression then. I took the time to write a letter and say you know how much I love my mom and you know what I needed in college. It was very sweet to hear her. Read one of your letters like that in college. Of course the buzzer beater eighty to winning the national title. You said in the documentary that that was the moment that you went from Mike to Michael Jordan. What did you mean by that up until that point? No one knew our was a college kid other than you know university but outside the university I was just known as Mike Jordan. You know and when I hit that shot my whole name became Michael Jordan and I think it resonated with a lot of people outside of you and see so I mean and I just started piling on that that name itself from successes that I endured throughout the rest of my career about Michael Jordan about Mike. It was more about Michael. Yeah it really was at that point and people remember it so well they have a shot of yours. We hear from your your father as well and boy did he know his son he said. If you want to get the best out of Michael Jordan you tell him he can't do something and we're going to show a clip that really personifies that because it was your second year in the League and you had an injury you wanted to get back out on the court management had another idea about that and what people take a look. This is what happened Michael if I play what percentages there that I'm going to get hurt. Doctor said ten percent and I just lost it and I said look his Timpson Tans but his ninety percent chance that I won't chimed in their doctors. What happens if the ten percent kicks it and they said well there's career would be over why everybody's just thinking about the negative. Wow think the glasses have four. Everybody think is half empty so I said to Michael. You don't understand the risk reward ratio if you had a terrible headache and I gave you a bottle of pills and nine pills cure you and wanted to kill you. Would you take a look at him? I said it depends on how bad headaches. Okay I got. I got apologize. Bomb that we we did bleep it out but sorry that we use that particular clip. I know the Lord's going like really really. But we're at that perseverance. That drive come from Michael. Where does it come from my parents? My father worked at general. Electric for years is trying to provide for his family. Moved all over southern all Kalama mind works for a bank to of corning glass. I mean they were hardworking people and they instill that not just me but my brothers and sisters so I mean and I just live vicariously through them and lived in learned it some damn and it just became a part of my nature you know and I always look at a negative turn it into a positive. Fortunately things like that happens in our lives and as I try to teach my kid you know just take that negative learn from it and turn it into a positive in that all came from my parents. Yeah and you're keeping up with your brothers as well we learned that the Docu series that they who a tight knit family and they really really. You guys pushed each other to be the very best. And that's certainly I wouldn't. I wouldn't be here less. It will be if it wasn't for my brother. Larry Larry Mean we used to fight after every game but do that fight emerged. Someone like me and you know he's right right next to me. He supports me and he works with me and the team and I would have never gotten this far without in. Well thank you and thank you Michael. I know you don't do this very often. It really means a lot to get up and and to speak with us and we really really do appreciate it and the series is just Primo. Very proud of it. You Take Care Mike. Talk to robin thanks. Thanks for having me all right. Really great to see Robin Roberts there and Michael Jordan together and guys. We're going to talk about this a lot. But one moment stood out to me specifically when he identified the moment he went from Mike to Michael Jordan he was a freshman eighty two hitting that game winner at North Carolina. Stephen was that the moment for you that he became. Mj In your eyes you could say that for me. It was when he dropped sixty three at Boston. God against Larry Bird and the Celtics who will forty and one at home in nineteen eighty six and a playoff game. Double-overtime had fifty four and regulation ultimately ended up with sixty three. And Larry Bird. I'm paraphrasing here Greenie. I think he said he was gone in basketball shorts. I mean this is. This is what it was that that to me was. Mj became MJ. But what I would tell you is that when he said he became Michael instead of just Mike this legitimacy to that because if you recall it wasn't just about his willingness to take that shot and I think it was like fifteen seconds left on the clock sixteen or something like that but North Carolina had already had James Worthy. That was the all American. That was the dude coming out of North Carolina that ultimately would get draft number. One by the Los Angeles Lakers but it was also who they were going against they were going against Patrick Ewing. Who had to be called to the sideline by coach John Thompson to calm him down because he got called for like three or four gold endings early in the game. Just look in the Swat everything out of the arena. He was trying to calm down. We Patrick you. It had arrived on the scene as well. Georgetown Hoya Paranoia John Thompson. The crew the fact that Dean Smith was first national title. All of those storylines was was involved in that particular game Jordan. Close the deal and put his name on a map and let everybody know here. This kid comes no question about it. But there were other storylines surrounding him the fact that he stood out above the crowd with that game winning shot in that kind of environment with the Bevy of storylines associated with it is. What did it for him? Yeah look the answer. Is the Boston Garden game where he dropped? Sixty three Larry Bird. It was quite obvious. Even though people at the time were you know you don't want to say off one game and he averaged twenty eight points as a rookie and then he came back and he was hurt the next year and then he came back and dropped at Boston. Garden and magic was winning. Mvp still and all that stuff. Michael Jordan was already best player. Who ever lived by. It was obvious. There's no one else like him. But there just wasn't the track record yet everyone to admit it the next year he averaged thirty seven points in game one against the Knicks Stephen as a good kind of starting point because that season for a guard that then to average thirty seven if fishing points a night counting I two super high usage rate not shooting threes. Not even a good jump shooter yet. Really just taking it hard to the hole. Every and averaging thirty seven there was nothing like it. If you look back now you still can't believe it. And during the course of that season people understood that Michael Jordan was different. I remember arguing with my father back. Then because centers had so dominated the NBA really forever and we were arguing about whether the Knicks would trade union for Jordan. I was trying to explain to them. You don't understand Michael Jackson train anybody for Michael Jordan and then I was told he would never win a championship so before he won the championship. The moment that really stands out to me was the dunk contest against Dominique. Where I know people say oh. Dominique should whatever foot Jordan heart. You know paying homage to Dr J. as dunking from the Foul Line. The way he did and even really improving on that dunk was sort of the iconic signature moment. So if I had to pick one that represented what we were all watching over those course the years before he won a championship. That would probably be it. You know I think you guys both waited too long. Figure this thing out now obviously remember all the Games you're talking about. I remember that eighty two championship game like it was being played yesterday and the sixty three that he scored at Boston Garden against arguably the greatest team ever the eighty-six Celtics but Stephen a Smith you and I both know that the other players in the NBA. The other great ones saw this coming when Jordan was a rookie because Isaiah Thomas and a bunch of those guys froze him out of the All Star game his rookie year. They weren't GonNa let him steal that show from them because they already knew that. Michael Jordan was the best player in the NBA. The best player in the world. So maybe we didn't figure it out until what he did in Boston. Garden the following year but the best players in the NBA already recognized. He was better than they were and they weren't going to let him steal their biggest show. They froze him out of the All Star game his rookie year. And I think that's sort of set the table. For his vision of the other stars in the game for the cold relationship between the Pistons and the Bulls and all the rest of it. I think it started there. Your thoughts about what they knew. But when you talk about everybody else you know I get what you're coming from. But everybody else used to sort of talent you SORTA AERIAL ASSAULT. But you will still wondering okay. Is he going to be really really tested? Because the Bulls were so awful. That you really couldn't see. I mean you saw his talent but still again they were able to derail them but I tell you what else helped him Greenie. What helped. Same bully because the fact that Sam Mbui was drafted number. Two spot ahead of him. Okay that brought attention. Nobody had any qualms about Houston choosing. Akeem the Dream Alonzo on at number one coming from SLAMMA Jamma in Houston but W- number two with Sam Mbui go on apartment and SAM Bowie coming in. Then he could play he just was saddled with injuries from its collegiate career on through you just knew would Jordan. Elevating is level place. It was like damn. How could boss her Portland make this mistake? And of course Jordan basic cargo by the wave. Jerry Krause dinner draft him. It was Rod Thorn the former disciplinary resolve with the NBA that drafted Michael Jordan. A lot of people forget that. Can I throw in one thought on that Greeny? I'm sorry Max again Max you go ahead. No go go go. What would I was going to say? Is that what you will start? Seeing on Sunday night I've seen the last dance what you will start seeing on Sunday night. Is that the root of the hatred. That a lot of those guys in particular Michael had for Jerry. Krause IS THAT JERRY. Krause knew that Michael was the only piece of the championship teams. He didn't put there and so he never stopped. Resenting that if Jerry has had been there a couple of years earlier and he had made that pick because he put every other piece in place he's the one who hired Phil Jackson would nobody wanted Philly was coaching in the CBA. He's the one who engineered a draft night. Trade for Scottie. Pippen and Horace Grant. He's the one who subsequently traded will produce straight up for Dennis Rodman Krause in the hall of fame because he made so many great move as the GM but the one piece he didn't put in place was Jordan. And that is the root of all of the animosity that existed all through that time between krause and basically everybody else Max imagine imagine this world what the human ego is that you are the GM of the Michael Jordan Bulls and you resent that guy you know but I want to get back to when Jordan became MJ Greenie. I hear what you're saying about that. First season and Isaiah and the allstars reaction to Michael Jordan. I remember my late brother. Sam with a pair of sky. Jordan's I was like. Oh look at those right those were the Air Jordans for little kids. They didn't have the air in them but they look the same. That was nine thousand nine hundred five one say but the reason I take starting at Boston Garden and extending into that whole other years. Stevenson said like opening night against the Knicks that whole year. I don't care what anyone says. We all knew we were looking at from that moment. The best player who ever lived and I don't think it was close. I don't think if you put people on a lie detector test with the Martian death being pointed at Earth and it goes off like if anyone says anyone other than Jordan when they put their eyes on him. It was like and athletes to come along like this. They don't want all out to be the greatest ever but like when Mike. Tyson was in his prime. No one wanted to say it out loud. Padilla this guy is the best of it. Didn't turn out that way quite. But that's the impression he left on contemporaries and it was really beginning at the Boston Garden game and extending through that season. He averaged thirty seven where he was simply. Unlike any other athlete in the history of sports there was never someone who made a impression on their contemporaries the way Jordan. You can go to someone like Babe Ruth when a League is small and it's not really homogenized yet. There are great deviations from the mean. You get guys who are incredible and guys were awful but the NBA was mature league by the time Jordan came around and did what he did. And under those circumstances you simply won't find an athlete like that anywhere. That's when I think it really became something different. Greenie to give back to your point about Jerry. Krause one of the things. You also have to remember that Jerry. Krause also guy. And I'm paraphrasing here but basically told Michael Jordan is shut up and play in other words. You don't run anything here. You're not control. You're a player. You're not management. You will do what we tell you to do. It wasn't as quite quite as incendiary as a norm. Brahma former owner for the Philadelphia Eagles going at Reggie White and saying what he said in that directive a fashion but it was along those lines which was incredibly insulting the Michael Jordan which is when Michael Jordan was ultimately completely disgusted of to no return when it came to Jerry Krause and it also didn't help that krause had elected to trade his his best friend Charles Oakley and eighty-eight even though that turned out not to be such a bad thing with the bodies that guy returned include. Bill Cartwright Cross famously said players don't win championships organizations. Do you'll see all that on Sunday night. Geico knows there many reasons why you ride from the Camaraderie of the other bikers. A band of brothers always there for you rain or shine to the amazing savings you get with Geico on your motorcycle insurance and accessories coverage all year round but it was one reason in particular. It was my helmet hair. Osborne with helmet hair. I've tried to cut it a bunch of times buzzing it but it immediately just goes back down there geico motorcycle. Fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. I want to hear from you. It's time for you at home to decide the debate. Send us the topics you WANNA see. Maximum Stephen Go head to head on. It's really easy. Send the debate topic tag. I take on twitter and make sure you stick around later in the show to see your idea. Made the cut our draft. What series continues with the bucks in today's the anniversary of Tom Brady being drafted in the sixth round number? One ninety nine. He named his production company after that infamous number marinade on this moment. Here look at those numbers guys. Brady's production nearly doubles the combined careers of the other eleven quarterbacks drafted in two thousand of head of him absolutely unbelievable on that note. Happy to bring in former pro bowl receiver friend to the show. Brandon Marshall here with us now. Good Morning Brandon. Thank you so much for being with us. But I'm actually going to start with Max here on this one max arm. We more likely to be elite. Tom With the bucks or gay manager. Tom Some version of game manager. Tom It'll pick up obviously his production from the last couple of seasons with the Patriots. Because clearly there are more weapons and Arians kind of philosophy. No risk it. No biscuit is gonNA take more chances and Brady does still have the requisite arm strength and I know people that he showed it on the radar as those sixty one miles an hour. Whatever it was towards the beginning of last season or media was last season in the preseason to show he still has arm strength but what happens is players age muscle a little more. So it's not as consistently accurate a lot of times. See Older quarterback overthrows targets down the field because they got to try to put more mustard on the ball and so Tom Brady not just last season two seasons ago when you looked at how much she was drinking ducking and the regression not just what the scouts are seen with is. The hard numbers were saying boy. He's drinking and dunking even more even compared to himself in recent years and then last year it was more than that the year before so even if he picks up the the difference between age forty one and forty two or forty two and forty three is not the same that year is thirty two to thirty three bigger things happen in terms of decline so even if some of that is offset by the box offensive philosophy and the weapons around him and the fact that he can still get it done when he needs to and so he picks up from last year. A tick up from last year the last year. That's not elite. That's still some version of a game manager. You can be very good with a game manager. A game manager. Who BIG ON. Third Down Tell You I met in one. A couple of super bowls. That's what that Prescott does a lot of the time that was Russell Wilson to start his career so that can be a very good thing. But that's different than in elite quarterback. Well it's five thousand yards passing game energy. I JUST WANNA make sure I've checked with you brandon. I I WANNA make get your expert. Opinion is five thousand yards game. Managing I just WanNa you don't agree with you. It is game as Brandon. I asked branded. I just WanNa yes or no answer is five thousand yards gay managing and look you. The answer is no. The answer is no so. Guess what Y'all so guess what. Y'All if if Jameis Winston who should have been defensive player of the year throwing thirty interceptors last year. I quarterback in. Nfl History Defensive Player years if he could throw for five thousand one hundred and nine yards and thirty touchdowns. I'm sorry for beer for me to do that. Even at age forty three. Tom Brady could do the same especially with Mike. Godwin Cameron and Oj. How it as weapons to Tom Brady could do. You're damn right. I can bruce areas of viral left. Which often yes I do so I expect Tom Brady to be close to elite then closer to game manager this upcoming season guys would you which are filling the realizes that would make Tom Brady. Leat is how he managed the game. Okay Tom Brady is not Aaron Rodgers. Tom Brady has never been Patrick. Mahomes. He's Never Been Russell Wilson. What Tom Brady does is he gets. His guys in the right play situation of football is out of this world has football. Iq As we all know is next level. Tom Brady Dink's don't and then he attacks you down the seam and went play action and all these fleet flicker gadget plays that they write up during the week. That's Tom Brady. That's what makes them leave and any quarterback out there. I don't care if you're seven. I don't care if you're in high school I don't care if you are a ten year. Nfl Vet if you want to be elite. You better manage the game. Yeah Stephen a let me get this straight street. Nice Florida You. Start Your argument by asking. The rhetorical question apparently is five thousand yards game manager analysts they can bring around and point by acids a brand and you turn around a point that Jameis Winston so yes. Winston was elite last year. According to you know I asked the question. What is radio do that? But that's a good point Max as no no. It's not a good point as his question is Jamesy lead. Hello Thousand Yard Thousand Yard. You're not necessarily elite. Know what I'm saying. Well let me let me explain. Why TERMS THIRTY MINUTES TO HOLD ON? Hold on hold. There's no way in hell. The Tom Brady is storing thirty in sexes in a season. He's never exceeded fourteen. So I'm not worried about that. What I'm saying is take Tom Brady into consideration. What a five thousand yard season is that going to be elite? Yes because it's not gonNA come coupled dirty in a section and then it's not going to be just a sixty completion of his passes. That's what I'm saying. I'm sorry that I didn't I didn't expound on more more more deeply that you need you need to. You need to lose credibility. We're not I. I'm with these terrible point thousand into credibility when it comes to credibility my brother. You Ain't to question that I take. That's why you want here. 'cause you know credible what about go way up. What else is going to go up Stephen Interceptions who go up to. If we're they more daring passing game if that is kind of a to. What's that what what whatever it is that you have about that when it comes to Tom Brady? Where's that ever talking about? It never happened. I'm talking about an offensive philosophy. That has you taking more. Chances will also result in more turnovers. The Point Mattis. Your mags are not bringing in depth measuring that bringing in. You're not bringing in a forty two year old. Tom Brady and asking him to run another offense. Tom Brady is coming in running the same offense that he's been running for twenty years all right so you can get that out of your head. Everybody in American. Get that out there here. Tom Brady has come and he's going to be the same Tom Brady. He's going to use his bags and he has Mike Evans. He has a Chris Jonah outside. They'll take their shots. But this is going to be thinking. Don't offense but brandon you off. Aol Brandon He. One hundred recipients don't abroad downfield and this is what makes this situation sweet because he has to Hughes playmaking receivers on an outside but with Tom Brady leads okay. Back to Molly's original question is how he managed the game and it's thinking and don't offense that's what's GonNa make him elite. That's what's going to draw one coverage on an outside to its big dogs outside. Look at the guy I mean. Come on the weapons around June. Come under there couldn't have been a better situation for Tom. Brady I know outside looking in people like Tampa Bay but these are some dogs. This may be the best pass catching group in the national football league. So what kind of numbers do you think? He PUTS UP BRANDON WITH TAMPA BAY. It doesn't matter. It's going to be the same Tom Brady. So the only thing that matters right now is wins and losses and I promise you this they will win the division. You promised visit. Bet Yes new Orleans on pay Sean Payton continues hurt. His team drew brees. Mike T Alvin Kamara mark. Ingram a couple of years ago you have a deep that go from crap in the first half of the season to one of the most elite defense. We ever seen in a season and you lose in the playoffs. Two years back to back. No Orleans is done well window is doing what well? That's the post go again regular season. You're talking about what they're gonNA do it a postseason but then you said probably window is closed. Their window is closed. I'm sorry their window is closed. Hold on ran into well. Why is there a window close? When last seen drew brees was playing better than Tom Brady? Is you see you see what happened to bill? The better team. Did you see what happened to their defense last year do you? Do you see that everyone in the League had the book on on New Orleans augments. Now that it's over it's they but now they got a man. You Got Emmanuel Sanders. They have the numbers sanders. Emmanuel Sanders is right next to me. He's too. He's too joy respectful brandon but love Emmanuel Sanders. Like what is he a ten year tenure? Bet what does he manual centers. Not Hey you know what manual standard? I love his game. At the end of the day he is not the Manual Sanders. From five years ago Brandon coming at all fired up like a Tokyo here brandon. But I need to ask you something else. I've had the pleasure of going to one of your charity events before. I know you do a lot in the community. Tell us what you're doing right now. Well you know a lot of friends. Nfl NBA guys. You know been trying to run to the frontline and Source ventilators mass. And I think I think our community our world is a whole done a great job there but one of the things that I think is important for us to understand now more than ever. It's time for nurses and doctors on a front line to recover like athletes. We're still fight. We still have a two month three month. Fight Against this thing that they're calling a beast and if our caregivers on a frontline isn't mentally and physically fit for the next patient for the next month for the next two months then all of the ventilators world is not going to help us fight. This thing that they're calling a beast so for us here at House Evatt we. You see the name in a beck. We're running to the front line with a lot of our guys steven Stefan digs Jerry Judy receiver coming out of Alabama. Jp Bobby Hart Lada. Guys are just run into our hospitals in doing everything we to get arts caregivers to things recovery rooms so thera guns and recovery pumps and their hospitals and protein and supplement so they can recover just like athletes right now. That was the hardest thing to do as a professional athlete was it. Wasn't they get to the game? It was like how do you get to the next practice right? So they're under the same tension mentally and physically that are professional. Athletes are thinking if they adopt our lifestyle and our principal. They can fight. This thing can crush this thing in the couple of months. Today's qb Jinyu focuses on the competition going down in Chicago for the starting spot between Mitchell trubisky and the recently acquired Nick foles bowls a super bowl. Mvp He's got four playoff wins as a starter over the last three postseasons. The bears meanwhile have four playoff wins in nearly thirty years. Let's get Mitchell trubisky. He ranked third in the NFL and Qbr in two thousand eighteen trailing. Only Patrick Mahomes drew brees but significantly dropped off last year to twenty eighth and that metric the bears went eight eight last season and finished third in the division. That we bring two time superbowl Champs booger McFarland bugger. Thank you so much for being with us this morning. Stephen I will start with you here. Who Do you think's GonNa Start? More Games for the bears is it trubisky or foles is. GonNa be Nick foles and I think it's GonNa be Nick foles because even though you only played in four or five games last year and complete about sixty five percent of his passes he's got a championship pedigree and it's recent. It's not a distant memory. It was just a few you know two or three years ago that he won the Super Bowl Championship over the New England Patriots. Don't feel about three hundred seventy three yards in the super bowl obviously facilitated him. You know I'm sorry very next year He took over for the injured. Carson Wentz again and guided the eagles to You know three or four victims to end the regular season victory over the Chicago bears in the postseason sort of as remember him vividly. When you combine that with the fact that trubisky who has talent by the way but just doesn't seem to have the mental toughness to lead this franchise as of yet. That's why you acquired nick. Foles Mitchell. Trubisky can throw the football. He can certainly run with the football. He has talent. The problem is you passed up on the show Watson to grab him. You passed up on Patrick Mahomes to grab him and obviously that's going to be a stain his career not to mention. I recall when he was drafted. He went to a Chicago Bulls game and they introduced him at the United Center. And he was you know unceremoniously boomed and so when you take that into consideration here about what kind of effect that happened that had on him mentally and emotionally. You're the Chicago bears. And you look at Matt Nagy last year and this guy was protected him. There were times when Mitch Trubisky with it. Run with the football. Nearly as much as he should there were times when he wouldn't throw it when he should because he was rattled and the ad a coach that was trying to massage. And and you know just just just pacify him a little bit too much around. Grown men bull. You could speak to this a hell of a lot better than me around grown men with mortgages to pay to feed a family to take care of it professional sports. You cannot play quarterback position and be babied so flagrantly by your head coach. You have to be a leader of men at least in some capacity. Nick foles when you look at him from an overall talent perspective eight the guy. That's going to outrun. Anybody might not even out throw Mitch Trubisky. But he's poised he solid. He doesn't crack under pressure. He's proven and the level of maturity. You looking for from trubisky. Nick foles already. Has I believe that's why they acquired him. And I believe the team will mandate to the head coach that this is a guy that you put in that position and give trubisky some time to continue to grow under the Falls Church. I agree with that when if the Games become meaningful or at a certain point if Bisky is not succeeding but a half the believe the organization still wants Trubisky to succeed so as much as they say it's an open competition they'll split reps etc. I have to believe that. There's an incentive that foles contract but there's an incentive to have the draft pick that you traded up for the same draft with guys who may one day wind up in the hall of fame that you selected ahead. This guy ahead of them. I have to believe they want that to workout. So the trubisky will be the opening day starter. And that he will. That falls is going to have to take his job. It's going to be when trubisky falters. I also think his playboy will get better with the pressure. That's why you bring a veteran and to motivate the young guy. You know that said I just need to say something about Nick foles so so much of the league I think and this goes for life but I see it in the. Nfl has to do with branding and people's minds if a guy's grafted with a team and he gets the starting job especially if he's drafted up and he does pretty well and he's there for years he's the franchise quarterback and you think of them in one way and if a guy's been dealt a bunch of times bounced around you think of him another way foles. I don't know why for whatever reason keeps switching has been moved around a bunch and even keep bringing this up in the PAC twelve even back then Andrew Luck was the guy that was Matt Barkley. I always thought falls is better than Barkley other than luck. The best quarterback in the division including Osweiler. I thought it was clear. He was qualitatively different than the others. He goes to the eagles. He throws twenty seven touchdowns against two interceptions he gets hurt and then he gets dealt for Sam Bradford. He wasn't doing a good enough job. It's odd and then he goes bad coach bed system. He's bench then. As soon as he gets a chance with the eagles again he wins the Super Bowl Super Bowl. Mvp and then the next time you get a chance. He plays them into the playoffs and Windsor Road game against the Chicago bears and almost wins at New Orleans. Received TURNS HIS head around. They might win it too in the Dome so for whatever reason fold has been branded a certain way but with the money on the line there few guys. I'd want more. I just think to start the season. The money's not yet on the line really in a big way and the motivation is to let trubisky give him every chance to succeed. You know guys. Here's what I would say. The reason that Nick foles was brought in was because they were unsatisfied. With what Mitch. Trubisky was doing so let. Let's understand that so they are dissatisfied with the job that they're high draft pick was doing on the field. So Molly when you ask the question who's GonNa Start More Games. I think it's going to be nick. Foles they are sending the message to us. They are unhappy with the guy and Steven to your point about from my makeup standpoint of the mentality and all of those things when you step on the field as an NFL quarterback the one thing you have to have that has to exude out of your pores that has to come when you walk in the building. It's confidence we're looking at the last dance documentary starting on Sunday. The one thing that Michael Jordan always had Michael Jordan knew he was better. He showed me was better but the confidence that he had when he walked in the door. Winning the name Michael Jordan was mentioned was always there Mitch. Trubisky doesn't have that you can see it and we can talk about turning the TV's off in the building so we can't read here the headlines. We can talk about all these different things. Confidence is something that is from inside you. You either have confidence or you don't. I can't put confidence in you to me. That's where the big issue with Mitch. Trubisky is and nick. Foles brings in because of success that he's had because of the confidence that he hasn't himself match. You talk about. Branding you talk about the perception of who who you are in national football league. That comes from how you play when you get on the field and most importantly nick foles has been given the keys to the kingdom a couple of times and hadn't succeeded but for whatever reason he's kept his confidence that's why he got the job Jacksonville. That's why he's not going to get an opportunity to have the job in Chicago. Because the confidence that Nick foles brings and maybe that's just because of WHO? He is highly believes in himself but either way as a player when. I see that come in my locker room when I see that. Step one of my football. I'm like let's go. I don't care how many mistakes because you're doing me that you have what it takes when the ball is in your hands to get the job done. I don't see that every day and Mitch Trubisky. And that's the difference. Between those two quarterbacks falls did consider retiring. I think going into seventeen right like he he. He had considered that not that he could still be confident but that does indicate where his head was in terms of how he thought he was perceived around the league. And all that stuff and to your point about your brand comes from how you play on the field it should and the NFL does actually more than some other sports. Because the contracts aren't as guaranteed and all that. But I think like Bellichik does that. You actually manifest that in terms of the way he runs the team. Tom Brady six rapid. He's the quarterback stem really might wind up being a quarterback for the Patriots this season but there are degrees of that bellichik on one end of the spectrum and some teams on. I still think the idea of branding plays too big a role in how players or miss evaluated and I think that's one of the reasons. Nick foles has not been evaluated properly man. Go Go ahead. Yep I know we gotTA GO MOLLY MAX. Kellerman where you alluded to nick. Foles being looking to retire a no. Yes Tom in Kansas City. But that was after his experience in Saint. Louis who was his coach. Jeff Fisher thank you both Stephen a wrap things up nicely for us.

"The big girls involved at the last public building Smoke BBQ here. Raskins on your white box Maxwell podcast, you know what guys I got one of my favorites of all time Nate Archibald neat. Tiny Archibald. How you doing? My man? I'm good, man. I'm good. I'm hanging in there every day. Same thing. I heard, you know at first asked about your help because you had I think you said you have a heart transplant right heart transplant. I had what they called amyloidosis, which is a protein build-up and everybody thinks all proteins are good and it wasn't good at it had my heart beating a lot faster, even though I wasn't doing any exercise so I had to get a heart transplant and off right now. I'm taking one day at a time. Well, I tell you when your heart was always beating fast in the way take you back to some of them serious. But before we get to Philadelphia and all that off, To take you to when you first got the Boston tell me a little bit about when you first got traded you would come in that time off of an Achilles injury and some just second one right after you left Buffalo and got traded to Boston. Right the first one I ruptured the second one. I I talked completely off. The bone coming to Boston was you know, you know people always had different expectations about the Boston. I stayed in Roxbury Dorchester. Okay, so I had a good time. Okay. I stayed in my element and people say stay in your lane stayed in my Lane. I had a great time, you know with with with the Celtics but more importantly Max. I had a great time in the community. Okay. I was in the boys club all the time. I met some great people and those people, you know, unlike us who are not playing anymore. They're still performing they lived like right down the street from you know, Roxbury Dorchester Boys Club. And they lived in Orchard Park Bobby Brown Michael Bivins and all of those guys and they was boys club members at a young age. So I met them and you know, what they they went off anymore. They're still performing and still make it and still and still making money. But I had a good time, you know, people always have misconceptions of certain places to go. I had a great time in Boston, you know, I wasn't that far from New York, but we did Leeds we did Community programs. We did tourneys and stuff like that back and forth, you know and and it was dead. We'll just great being a part of the Celtics but more importantly being a part of the community. Well psychologically I watch you come back from that Achilles and what I remember that was just really how you were so into one thing and that was getting back into shape and what I remember you and you remember this. Well you and them damn sweat suit you're wearing you come to birth. It will be just completely wet because you were dripping all over the place from just sweating because you were trying to get yourself back into shape. I saw your closer you get burnt tiny anymore you were you a little bit heavier. You were close to two hundred pounds at one time. Yeah, it was a little a little more than that. But anybody that, you know knew me back then know that I was never that big okay, because of the Achilles tendon injury I couldn't do know running I couldn't do no ride my bicycle of riding a bike. I couldn't do that and I gained a lot of weight but my thing was first of all getting in shape and trying to make the team that was the most important thing to me. I wanted to still be a competitor but just getting in shape cuz I would never ever out of shape. I'm not out of shape now, I still drive and and and, you know still do a little running on the treadmill. I don't go outside and ride right now because of the circumstances because of the epidemic, but you know what? I'm still dead. About 185 190. I gained a little bit of weight, but I just feel good that I'm still alive first of all and and and I'm getting healthy every day. One thing we we talked about and and I look back on is during the championship run and and I watched you all of a sudden game confidence into being you transform into another player. You weren't the score or any more you could be but what you were were the past or other you complain to me all the time because shooting shots all the time ain't get no damn. Sure. I'll write you telling me that off you guys shooting all the shots. I got the ball, but you know how you transform as a point guard to me was really interesting. It was a thing that I learned in high school being, you know committed to trying trying to win and yeah, I complain to you cuz you was my buddy. Okay, you you as a friend, but she was my brother and when when we started, you know our journey as far as trying to win games and stuff like that. I just thought like I had the ball all the time and I could probably still school but I had so many assets around me that could do certain things and I just wanted to make make that transition and not not not not not being a non score but make that transition to trying to be a part of a team all all my life. I've been a part of a team and necessarily not scoring and not maybe pass ball all the time when I was in high school. I was a topic we didn't lose a game in high school, but I was on a team and God says no you was the man no. No, I was on the team. I was glad to be on the team. Then you go to school and you just log No, you you a player on the team and I think that when you know growing up and that doesn't matter where you grow up Max this growing up. You just wanted to be a competitor. Okay, you just want to belong and when I got there, I didn't know where I fit. Okay, but then you you know, you talk about Larry Kevin cheap the game became easy and it wasn't scientific the game the game became easy, and now you have to manage the game. I had to manage that game. Yes. I took less shots, but I had the Magic game cuz I had so much great person all around me and I just wanted to fit in. Well one thing that here's another thing that people know made Archibald was one of the only players to lead the league in scoring and assists ever to do that. Now you're going from there. How long is your eyes open? The first time you saw Larry Bird because I had the garden but what did you think the first time you saw cuz you you were right there at that first day it was it was eye-opening because wage He became to me a basketball player first and then a professor. He diagnosed a game. He he knew certain things, but I told people was just not Larry was you it was just it was Robert. It was ml was Gerald. It was even fernstein who didn't really play that much we had guys. We had a different camaraderie than the guys have now, Okay, and we still have that we could talk about it, you know about the playing aspect. We can't talk about the other things that we did together going to the movies going out, you know, and doing different things to get the eating and stuff like that. But the camaraderie will never go away people can't people can't say that I'm a single song right now freaks come out at night off and that and that to you know, the club the clubs and stuff like that and the eating and stuff like that. I think that you know genuine guys had a good time. Yeah, you know we took and it was dead. Color barrier Max. It was a thing that we all went out and had fun together, you know, and and and that's that's the thing that even though we want a championship. We had a good team and stuff like that could have won a couple more. Somebody didn't separate. They showed them go down and I get stabbed there all the time with that but you know what I still still so people I got one and I have a we had a great team and we still have that camaraderie. Well one thing that I I laugh about was it was just before the season ended I had a chance to talk to somebody and it made me think of you immediately birth saw you elbow gas, but I was talking to my research. He's in boy. I know he got somebody from Europe. Hey Nick, I'm like they don't do them like you never said anything, but all I can see Maris hit in the throat. So it was a different game played back during that time. It was it was much much more physical and guys don't understand that part of it. They given a lot of guys who can score now credit got the great shooting stuff off the max, you know, you know and and Kevin can testify to this you get one shot bro. Okay, you you embarrassed me one time after that. You're going to be down. Okay, you're going to be on the you going to be on the ground and you know, they give guys a lot of credit. This guy's a great shooter. You could do this and do that. Oh man, if we can give up a file we would give up a good fire wouldn't be an old Mister Softee fire on ice cream truck. It'd be a good file. And and that's I think part of that is missing and and people always question me about it. I said they changed the rules and it made the game safe from and softer. That's what they did. I I laughed to also when I think about the greatest series that I've ever played in when the championship series wage But they had to be that filler Philadelphia Boston. Nineteen eighty-one. Don't those were Wars wars slow and I saw you with with them, you know, when they talk about, you know, the Lakers Celtics series. I don't know why they want to interview me cuz we never I never was involved in that type of series. It was always huge thin or like you said either. What's Philadelphia? Okay, and we crushed everybody else. So it was it was always a war against us and Philadelphia in the team that you dig about it. Now the team that one okay would we would be in the championship game against either or Houston? So I always tell people the war was Philadelphia. Okay, because we didn't it's not like we didn't like them. It was a myth. Okay. We wanted to just beat them and they wanted to beat us. Well, I do remember one time actually with us being in we played a game. She game against Philly and we played him I want to say it was in Knoxville, Tennessee, Tennessee. And after the game was over know places were open to eat except the hotel. Well, we got there early to eat and when I remember was barely walked in and because we were there they were like hell no winning. He they left and that's all people off as it was back during the eighty teams did not like each other right? Well, it was it was always like that. It's not like that now and even in the summer hours. Okay. The only time I played with. Okay was when he was in New York and we played against Philadelphia we were friends, but when we put it on that different uniform we weren't friends and I tell them one time. It was I think it was you and Larry we had an altercation in Philadelphia. Okay, when everybody was in in and you jumped on one of the I think the wage Is added do something on you and stuff like that and and and and it didn't unite a hate or a dislike for Philadelphia, but it was a competitive spirit that we had within ourselves and we represented whoever was on the team. We represented them and it was like yo, man, you can't do that to one of our guys even though we might be friends later on in the summer. You can't do that to one of our guys cuz she competitive and we want to win. Well the thing I I remember distinctly about that game was we were up by one. I had the basketball with about 3 seconds ago, and they will call well Jones and Darryl Dawkins on me. I threw the ball in the corner of the U and U and we were ahead and also you thought was shot. It was a hook shot from about thirty feet away with the right in the bottom. I was like this was a day. So I I remember that well, we had we had a good run. Okay, but you know when when people talk about dead The physicality of the game. Okay. I saw some and you know, I'm watching the you know, the so-called scrimmages and stuff like that. They show some highlights where guys was getting clocked off and you went in one time and got filed and it looked like everybody on the and now they finding people everybody on the bunch United. Let's see. Oh man, that's when our guys and stuff like that. But that's I mean people say that's not happening anymore. I missed that part of the game because when you really know who your teammates are, okay, and that's and that and that's the part of the game. That's not happening anymore. Well talk to me about your relationship with red are back because here's a guy who went out. Got you you heard and believed in who you were. I'm not going to and then I'll get about I'll go to the Gap Gap billfish, but talk about read first read was a you know, he was a concept guy that always looked at. Guys who was supposed to be dead? Okay guys who were really forgotten, you know in in on their way out and and I say in and it's not being a fascist but it is growing fastest. Okay, I think about guys before me Paul Silas, you know, Don Cheney I think about a lot of guys that people gave up on and you know, when I first met I thought that was the first time I met red, but when I went to his office, you know smoke and all that kind of stuff smoking a cigar he started talking about the championship runs championship teams and stuff like that. And he said I think you could still do this. Okay. I think you could still do those we bring it in somebody and I didn't make I didn't meet billfish before and you notice she was on the I call it The Good the Bad and the Ugly team before Bush came in. You know, you talk about Sach and then Dave cowens. Okay. He said I'm bringing in somebody and you know, I'm giving you this chance to run this theme and we're going to bring some new guys in and wage. Wait, ok. See all these Championship banners. We got we want another championship Banner. So my thing was I want to be a part of that because I've never in like you before that we've never been apart of a championship run. Okay, we was always with the ugly team okay or the bad team and now you're talking about a great team now, so when he said that I said, I gotta get in shape, you know, I you know, I came back from my injury. I got I really want to get a shame cuz I want to be a part of the team. I didn't know the gods that at the end, but I just wanted to be a part of that team. Okay, because it was thought you you window is closing. I said Larry in them and you were coming in on the exit. I was I mean on the entrance and I was leaving on the exit. So I just wanted to be a part of a winning Open Championship. One thing that I remember you telling me about which always sticks in my mind as you you went to birth. S o u t right and the first thing you told me all the time was do you look like it got name Nevil shed. That's what you always say show me who I look like but you know that when they're talking about black lives matter UTEP was that were the last schools that had five black players that came in in one in the big dance talk a little bit about them off how things are now. Well, I think if you look around the country, they starting the best guys and at that time no, wait a minute. They wanted to let they were the first okay, they would have first theme and it was not you tip. It was Texas Western College. Yeah. Okay and three of those guys that's why I said you you remind me you don't look like I'm you remind me of never said because three young guys that was on the championship team Max was off from the Bronx one guy Willie words. He went to deal with Clinton and people always, you know, relate to Willie and me I said, yeah. Well he was home. Team. Well, you gotta understand Willie let the city New York City in scoring and the guy says man. When were you at I said I'll have the best seat on on on the bench. Okay, cuz I was behind Willie but I didn't play that much never shed. Okay, and one of the Willie cager went to Mars High School in the Bronx, so we had three guys that represented New York, but more importantly the Bronx okay that played on that championship team and I think it's different now. Okay, because Texas Western wasn't a major university. Okay until two or three years later when I was there was still Texas Weston and then my junior year they became United in the in the University system and it was called new tab University of Texas at El Paso, but it got bigger and it got larger and they added more Sports and people on the set. Why would they be Texas Western? They didn't have enough of sports to be a university? Okay, even though they played on the University on Thursday. University level but I think it's changed now. Okay, I haven't been down there in years. The guy the people that saved me and all and and it's always people thinking it's the head coach. Okay, don't ask us was good. Okay, as far as defense Mac and that and gases well, how come you know, it didn't you know weigh on you and he was playing. In fact I said cuz guys couldn't got me anyway, so I had to play no defense I could play it but I didn't have to okay, but the guys that saved me okay, and I'm not talking about the basketball part. I'm talking about the educational part was Nolan Richardson. I call him Sam. Okay, and this guy and he's Starvin Nolan Richardson wasn't a coach at Texas Western. I was dead. He was coaching High School. Okay, he was going to break high school and they won the state championship. Okay, when he was there, what would a midget T. But he went from Bowie High School. Then he went to West Texas when the junior college championship. Okay wage. Tulsa when nit and then he went to Arkansas. Okay. And when the NCAA, okay, so he was instrumental in me staying in El Paso month, okay and going to school and and he Stockman was another guy and it was so many people that helped me understand about first of all being a student-athlete and getting my education cuz I tell people I'm a bad student. I was a terrible student. Okay, but they made me persevere Jerry Hale. Okay, there's so many guys that weren't the head people. Okay, but understood that way to make him believe that he could be a student and and a student-athlete and so he can persevere word association your loved us when how will go Hermitage elicopter good player. Okay, I mean If you ever see him play he goes up and I I can't compare him to anybody in in in the NBA cuz people always say well he was like David Thompson is only one it was only one David Thompson. Okay, and these guys that you're going to start mentioning our guys that played in the streets. Okay, never played in the NBA, but go ahead you eat correctly. Kirkland went to Norfolk State play with Bobby Dandridge. Okay, he's a good guard but a street legend never played in the NBA. The Destroyer Johanna I mentioned to you out of the Ruckus league and you just go you light up Joanne vet. He was the to me. He was the baddest dude. Okay in the summer Lee and the true story now you could ask Jerry West Jerry West came to the Rock apart to see Joe played wanted to give him a ticket to go to LA to play like in the summer league and stuff like that. Never gave him a contract joke wouldn't leave the city bro joke wouldn't he could play bro at a young age. He played in the eastern league. He destroyed the eastern league, but he could really play but didn't want to leave New York the things you I hear you talk about when you talk about the city and the influence off on basketball when Walt Frazier Kane the coolness of wall, but everything was about the city the next I just remember you just you were so glowing about you know, how the Knicks were during birth. And how you watch the bush or how you watch Frasier all these guys in the city was just it was it was just radiant. It was a different era back then and I don't think that Iraq will ever ever duplicate what they did in the seventies. I watched Earl. Okay, because Earl was in Baltimore. Okay and early as a New Yorker now off and then he came to New York and that's another guy that had to make a major sacrifice cuz when Earl was with the bullets he was he was torturing people getting 30 and 40, but when he was at Winston-Salem, he did the same thing. So New York decided your what a set of him burning us all the time. Let's bring him in and just be a player on our team. But you know Earl made a major sacrifice off his scoring. This is just to be a part of a team there. There are things about a game that you understand and how it's played and you just have to love it and when I think about Your relationship that bounced around with billfish and how that was that that was a adversarial something going on and off it was it was a love-hate relationship that you and Bill Fitzgerald, right? And and and it was about just me playing. I remember one time that he jumped on my brother okk and and I had to come back a little bit and I and I had to come to you know his defense because I didn't think that he should be tearing certain guys down. So you've got a hard shell everybody knows that so you can mess with me all the time and you know, you know one of it, you know, this one of these days of one of these nights me and him might have to go to blows but I did want him since you gave me, you know, the the label of the quarterback or the point person of the team. I didn't want you to mess with my guys. Okay, because you tell them down In KC, Jimmie Rodgers those guys have to build them back up. It was it Max. It wasn't no different than when I was in college, you know has his would tell us down. But we had Andy stoglin off or Jerry Hale to bring you back up and that was because Bill picked the right people. Okay, and those are the guys that we really gave the ultimate respect to what we thought we were expected bill, but those guys Casey and you know how soft Casey's voice was and stuff like that those guys were very humble and loving to us because they knew what was going on. Okay, and they felt like damn now I got to do the I got to be the Buffalo, okay and and smooth this stuff out cuz we need you. You're the ultimate guy. Okay, but we need the rest of the guys because they the the the instincts and then penalty of if we going to win or not. Okay. So yeah, you remember the time that you got on the bus? And he jumped on you and I like your man. Let's go outside man and and and wanted to throw him to slow down with him because you messing with me. Okay, when he messes with my with my teammates and I thought he supposed to be the head guy, but he can't play like we can play on the floor. He can only give us instructions. Okay, I the moving on little bit and talk about the new NBA and also offer what's going on with the coronavirus and being down in the bubble right. Now. How do you feel about these bubble games? I'm sure you've seen maybe just bits and pieces but it almost seems like a glorified generally game. I I I've seen a lot of them. I see Boston I saw last night the Clippers and and and and I think certain teams I see Toronto wage and I don't want to embarrass anybody but I already picked certain teams. Okay because of the intensity that I see them play even when you talk and it's not a it's I call them friendly game. Stuff like that or exhibition games, but the intensity is there last night that to me without any fans and stuff like that that look like a playoff game. Okay, even though the Clippers a guy in a lot of guys that is full they stacked. Okay, they brought some guys in Jr. Didn't play last night, but they brought some guys in okay to solidify they bench and trying to get them to shape and if they ain't in shape now they going to be in shape because it's going to be over cuz I think they start tonight. Okay with the regular playoffs so-called implemented season or whatever they want to call it. But I think that for the teams like LA and Milwaukee I think it's an injustice that they got because Max when we playing we play for home-court Advantage. Okay, and and and one of the things that people don't see and you know this sometimes when you go into the Boston Garden cuz you played there. Okay, it's about the fans. Okay, and the fans could get you riled up you get to Philadelphia and and and my man playing the horn and the tutoring and stuff like that and pissing us off okay, and and and doing their national anthem it gets them riled up. So I think that that's a piece of the puzzle that's missing but the teams like LA and Milwaukee who had the home-court advantage not playing at home. They gotta come with a best game now bro. They got away with their best game cuz all the games are going to be played. They're okay with no fans. I see the little, you know picture of people and stuff like that and off. They trying to do to you know, the glorified with the noise and all that stuff, but that to me that don't work. They nobody throwing stuff on us and stuff like that or cursing us out and and and stuff. So that's part of the game. That's that's going to be missing but I think the most competitive Street 14s or four point five teams that I've seen. Okay, cool. Walkie. Okay, the people in Canada. Oh, man, they they they they roll in bro. And you're going to say why you ain't talking about the the C's because camber didn't play. Okay, that's a big part of in the backcourt cuz their frontcourt is Young, they don't have a center but they do have a center but with with him and you know, he's from the Bronx. So with him, I think that that hurts a lot of the that intensive penetration and the knowledge that he has on the floor handling the ball and stuff like that. Now you putting other people in the backcourt, that's not dead. plane is much minutes as he has and I think it's going to hurt a little bit because it's about it's today or tonight. It's about winning games now. Okay, and the guys that are like the Clippers the guy that are not part of that bubble. Now who's got to come in and go to go through that quarantine. I think it's going to hurt them because they missing those guys now, okay, and when they come back it might be too late. Okay? Okay. I'm not here. This is when I woke up to the counter crazy part. I'm going to get I need an apology from you right now. Nineteen. Eighty you and I are in San Diego. It is New Year's Eve. Yeah. Yeah, you know how I'm very angry that it was five four three little coming out. I had this nice young lady. I'm. The kiss her you come behind me. It's just me riding my ass. So what was there for was happy New Year now kiss me and I was mean to me. Did you did you did you got some excitement you deal with like yourself? Well, man. I'm sorry, ma'am. Sorry my bad. You know what? I love this part when we start talking about enter my ask you something a little different. And this will be different from you. Give me your Mount Rushmore of sports doesn't have to be doesn't have to be you know, all basketball. You get four people then you put in the back of your house you build an amount Rich warm right now. What's that much more look like I would go I would have to go with Muhammad Ali first. Okay, okay. Basketball is hard because I grew up with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Okay, so, you know people say well what about Bill Russell Russell comes in but I'm off with Kareem. Okay, is he he's he really to me, you know, they changed the lame for will but he really Revel revolutionized the game when he was in college when Korea came into when he was at Paul Memorial. He didn't do that much Duncan he could but we went to UCLA. No Dunkin soon as he leaves off they bring in the dunk. Okay, so he had the master another shot. And I think he has the most Unstoppable ever shot in the basketball history. I know guys like deep sea and. Can dunk and they can glide and and Michael and could dunk on you and stuff like that, but they will have at times Unstoppable. But Kareem had the Unstoppable shot. Okay. And and and then I'm going to switch it up. I'm going to football it's unfortunate that he's not in New England anymore. Okay, but I think that when you talk about the Mount Rushmore Sports Tom Brady broke ain't nobody did what he did. I don't care if guys are getting more money. Okay, you talking about eleven trips and got a six Super Bowls and I think football probably is the the hardest sport to repeat entry Pete. Okay, and the last is is baseball. Okay, and I know that we're going to say why you pick him. I'm taking Willie Mays because you're talking about going. into foreign Sport and it's not foreign to him but being the not the first cuz people always say with the first he wasn't the first I think going into a sport where you talking about. What's happening now? Okay, you talking about racial equality? Okay, and he revolutionized that he was with Brooklyn. He was with another, you know other teams like that, but I have to go with you know, Willie Mays for opening up those doors for other people to get a chance to play in a sport. Those are my my young people in different sport. Everybody would probably argue about the basketball part of it. But you're my man. My allegiance is to New York, and I'm going with Carine. They use New York is crazy. But if you think looking start looking at the guys who are from there and who played during that era and having Kareem. It's it's almost say you can't touch you. You know, you got your birth your guy. You haven't talked about him though. I thought you'd be talking about Kingfish Bernard King and his brother. You know, those were those again gas out of that New York area that you're going man. There were players wage. Now before I go there, throw another name that you Andrew Toney. Oh man, they called them The Boston Strangler, but he he was he was just tough man. He was just thought of but you know what that's part of that Philadelphia Boston hate tradition, and I don't think they really hated us but they were they knew that if they could not pass so if they would be in the championship, okay, and you know, we sometimes when I'm around. We talked about it. Oh man, I couldn't go out this guy. I couldn't go tanning and and he didn't say anything. Invite certain guys, but he knew that those guys were competitive and it wasn't like they didn't like him. They knew what he could do. So in certain areas, you have to just cut him off. Okay, but it was he knew this bro. We we would come in and and we were going to be competitive and we knew that they were going to be competitive and then you know, you got a lot of guys the only guy that and and and he's laughing at us now, but when I look at him and he played with Philadelphia, he was a dominant Force if he had became to play okay, and that stuff off if he came to play she would put him in his pocket. She forget off on him early and down Dolphins would get maybe one maybe one dunk. Maybe no dunks. Okay, but he had to guard guys that he couldn't go. Okay, cuz she wasn't a dominant back-to-the-basket Center. He was a turnaround guy that faced him up and chief would run and go by him. And and get easy shots. So he had a difficult task about that and dial was a guy that when he got it low. Okay, he would kill guys, but he never got it that low on guys God would take them off of a position and he turned around a couple of times Max and I hate to you know, go back in time. He turned around a couple of times and shot some jumpers and I said keep on shooting them big-ass people shooting him cuz I mean as soon as as soon as you sad about one or two jumpers Billy took him out here, Caldwell Jones because that wasn't part of the game that Billy Cunningham wanted me to play he wanted him to be physical and back then he could have been but he wasn't okay, so when he came into the game it was like well Chief going to take care of him real fast, cuz he going to be right back out. They talking right now to Nate Archibald Hall of Famer and I believe you were one of the fifty greatest players of all time. Yeah, they feel sorry for me. No, no, no, no. No, it wasn't that build to go out among those fifty and you know, no no offense to anybody who didn't make it cuz I was so proud to see that you in that position and having that jacket and that room must have been unbelievable. When you think about those fifty guys it was and and off and you know, I don't even look back on it. Okay, cuz I tell people it wasn't something that you looked. To happen Okay. I was honored to be with you know back then it was Sam and and you know, I know you're going to go off on cools but cools was there and Shaman and all of those all of those guys was off and you know, Bill Walton people. Well, I don't care what they say. Okay, we didn't pick ourselves. Yeah, okay, you know bill was there, you know and they've bounced who I play with in the summer before he was a Celtic. Okay. So a lot of the guys that represented, you know, you're talking about the Seas were inducted you talk about Robert you talking about Larry Page you talking about Kevin? Okay, and and it just felt like home to me. Okay, what would all those guys? Okay, you're talking about Shaman and cozy was their sandwich there. We had we probably take a look back at it. You got more Celtics in that so-called top 50 than any other team in the history of the basketball. Well the thing about you won more championships anybody else, so I guess dead. To the victor goes the spoils, right? I'ma leave you with, you know telling me a little bit about the guys in the game the day that you really admire guys that you look at and going man that do right there is too because I think about the way you score the bow and just think about it if if the 3-point shot was in you would have probably had to get a little bit more range but me and that would add to some points to your numbers, but tell me about these guys today that you look at that. You really admire. Well one guys up up there because I I saw him grow up Faith and people will say you did. Yes, ask them. Okay, when he was in high school Kemba, you know, he went to high school and had he he was struggling a little bit. Then he go to Hong Kong and I said to go the best thing that Campbell did okay was he went back to school and people who don't notice until they hear from me? Okay. He went back to school Yukon and graduated early. Okay. He got home. Re early, okay, but he was a he was a I call it a finder's Seeker. Okay. He's looking for some kind of identity cuz when he went to show off he was a score and he was a passer but they weren't winning a lot of games and I know that's your home town anyway, but they weren't winning a lot of games. Okay. Now you go with a traditionally a better team because he got better Personnel, but if you look on the band as a scary up there when you look at all the championship banners, they got that I tell people when you look at the Boston Garden and out of the TG, whatever Center they call it now they know conference banners up there by know teams. Okay, it's always Championship banners. I look at the guy that y'all had because I saw his dad grow up. Okay, we talking about Kyrie Irving. Okay. I saw his dad grew up and I had his dad. Okay. Mitchelle projects. Yes. Yes. So went to be you. All right and his job Don't say to me a long time ago when they was when I went to the Barclays Center. He like you I said no, he ain't like me if he make it more be making more money. And I think he's better off because he enjoyed the championship team earlier than I did. Okay, but you know, I looked at Curry I look at guys like that and who play a different sport? Okay, Kyrie and Kimber more of a perpetrator. Maybe not a great shooter like Curry, but those guys have a different method to the madness Okay and Max if we me and you were still playing Bowery and Kevin and we talk about personal trainers. We talking about the nutritional values that they have but people cooking and stuff like that. We could probably still be playing. Mm. Okay, because we didn't have that. We were our own personal trainers and we did stuff okay with somebody got hurt. They got x-ray machines and stuff like that right there convenience. To everybody and it's saved as saving a lot of the guys now. It didn't save us. Okay, we had our turn and now it's a new generation of guys who haven't had home and I tell people that I said, I'm hoping that they having fun and they saving and and doing some financing with their money because I tell people the most fun I have wasn't playing in the NBA has the most fun I had was playing in summer leagues and stuff like that against Pee-Wee and Joe and. And stuff like that because there was no pressure on on you and people say well you was getting a salary he was getting salary from them what it was a no-pressure about winning. It was just having fun and being competitive and you could kick the ball up in the stands if you want. Okay and get a check and come right back in the game. I said in the NBA was different. It was about winning games. Well, it was so good to see you my friend. I hope you stay healthy. This is the end of the Cedric Maxwell podcast with my my good buddy, Nate Archibald. They saved be be good and always be black. Okay, bro. You tried man. Have a go. See you when you come to Brooklyn. All right, man. Well holla back off.

Lakers tie Celtics in Titles and Evolution of NBA | Showtime Podcast with Lakers Legend Michael Cooper

"Welcome to another edition of Showtime with Cooper insightful BS by one lonely me today off this gets you just do it today. Why am I here? I just generally going to leave money. What do they call it. Traded Michael Cooper. I mean I was in a long time. Okay, I was barely alive for Showtime. But you know, I would give me some give me some credit here, you know, you know what? Hey, it's all about me today. That's what it's about. No gas the Lakers won a title to the title or something, but it's a it's an asterisk title this year, right? It doesn't count not and we don't get into that. But before we jump that far, I want to give big time Kudos a shout out to the Lakers front office Jeanie Buss Rob pelinka, and I would Frank Vogel of course and Linda Grandma's but you know what they are the ones that are in the bubble now and they're getting a lot of birth. Lays and pats on the back and and and congratulations for winning this Championship. But I'm going to go out on the limb a little further and say but Magic Johnson in there two matches with the organization two years ago, He is the one and the real reason why Lebron James decided to come to Los Angeles, you can't win championships without Superstars magic with the ones that get LeBron here and now he's able to attract other Big Time Players like and they gave us so let me ask you about that because I mean magic is kind of criticized for that. It's a short it was a short period of time and the the organization was a tab a bad situation. So He was instrumental in getting LeBron to be here independent because I mean cuz that's an interesting way to look at when he was you know, the GM of the team, right? I mean it was short and it wasn't viewed as being popular but certainly if if if you're right and I mean it certainly begs reason the magic would be influential for LeBron to come to La then. Yeah, I mean that's sort of an underrated part of that. You know, when magic was was leading the Lakers it was a big part of that and again though, he wasn't there and he wasn't the time he spent with the organization in the position. He had he was there to do exactly what he did just the basketball things. I think we're not get into the other reasons why he left but the underlying conditions for that was magic was not a day-to-day person there. He was there to do some specific and being part of organization. He's doing some recruiting accounting and and attracting big-time free agents and he did his job. There are other things that he had to do, you know as being a businessman there are other businesses he had to attend to but even dog The short stint it was a powerful went to me and I think again, he's a reason LeBron James was there and obviously Rob pelinka going on and get his you know manager duties Jeanie Buss did her ownership Duty and putting them together. That's how the Lakers are always ran. The Lakers are ran is part of the team team functions. Well up top the filters down to the bottom and that's why you got the Los Angeles Lakers being crowned the 2020 Jeep not asked eristic Championship. Okay, so you can't put anything on that to me. This is probably the hardest Championship that anything ever have to go through being in a bubble the conditions the world was in having a platform to make some big-time statements and social injustice a police reform these guys man did a great job now. I will because the winning of the Boston Garden off 85 better than that well after him up there and all right? All right. All right minus, okay. But I think that these guys had a lot to endure and go through I will criticize elected a little bit for being one of two teams not wanting to go into the bubble and play and I know they are glad that they did they came to a group consensus that they would come into this bubble and play wait. There was no bubble without the Lakers. Are you kidding me know that but still there was that concept or that was the notion that the Lakers didn't want to participate I should say there would be no bubble without LeBron without the Lakers you had it right the first time. Great. A couple of years ago not individuals and LeBron. The one thing he said that I really admire that young man for is anybody that's out on the court with me in Christ. I'm I believe in trust in them so that their tells you that he trusted his teammates and like I said teams win championships well and and like we were talking about I mean, this was just such a versatile team, you know, we we kind of The beginning of the the postseason where we talked about maybe their flaw was defense. Well, obviously that wasn't a flaw and the reason for that is even they just have to eat level Defenders obviously in one of them is LeBron still the best defense may be a when he wants to be and obviously in big possessions of crucial playoff moments. You've got the best defender in the NBA, you know at any time to to unleash so this was this was just a really good either. I don't think there's any question this was the best team in the NBA this year. So yeah, no asterisk. It was difficult with everything going on as you mentioned. And and if this occurred if this had been the playoffs outside of the bulb in a regular situation Lakers would have won two. I have no doubt about that. I agree with you on that. I'm going back to what you just said a little bit LeBron was not the best defensive player. I think you could be offensive player in the bubble all year long because of the barn has some defensive lapses during that that's what I'm saying though. You just totally he's not he is the best defender in the NBA when he wants to be You know, but kind of like we talked about where it takes. There's no reason to use that wear and tear in the regular season. He is a on-demand playoff Defender. That's it. And that works Alabama. He's not a Michael Cooper and then now he's not my I mean like lock down into games and forty games the playoffs. You know what I mean? Like just lock down for every game. You're right LeBron. Do that but he said you gotta understand my role a little easier than the total team is corn a serious breakdown in that can take its toll on you and I'm going to step up in specific areas in a certain times in the game. Like, you know, the Denver series he was blocking shots out of nowhere on that series and then he continued to do that in the championship against Miami, but I think the Lakers were the long-distance it came through this whole season. So and I agree with you whether we're in the bubble or if in fresh air and Outlet in the real world Lakers are going to win a championship in just a matter of how long I'm in, Gainesville, Georgia. Take them to win. But again, they played a very good managing 1842. I went to games longer than I expected. But you gotta get a team credit Jimmy Butler song, man. Can you talk about any one player to step up for his team when the chips were down and player Personnel was down and losing going going and Bam the first two games of the first game in that series for that young man of stepped up the way he did man. I had a lot of respect for him because I knew he was a big difference of player that minutes at the Minnesota and in Philadelphia when he was there for a short period of time but he showed me something on the offensive and I didn't know that he could score like that. He was off most boring at will and when you get a guy like that Alan Iverson Michael Jordan, he has stepped his game up to that level and depending on how the rest of his career go. You know what you can almost mention that man's name. Even the breath of those two players, you know, there's there's three guys that are part of the same draft class that all are very similar and have similar skill sets Klay Thompson Kawhi Leonard and Jimmy Butler. Well, there's a 30th pick of the first round of that of that draft. Those are three guys what 6667 long athletic wings that can defend their great. Two-way players obviously clay was the first one taken and then go I was you know made a lot of late lottery or end a lottery was in Indiana trade to the Spurs, but and and look Jimmy. I mean we've seen obviously Clay win championships and am I lifted his team to a championship last year. So Jimmy was able to do that. We found their level but he's in the same vein of just a great two-way player and and that athletic, you know, six seven big Wing can can really defend 5 position sort of sort of body and butlers been that 244, you know throughout his career started obviously, Minnesota and in Philadelphia and Miami You know, obviously the only thing he's missing is a championship because again, he's in that I would consider him in that group multi-positional Player right wage can defend multiple positions didn't really I believe if you had the help that Kawhi had in Toronto and in San Antonio and obviously the help that clay had and go to the state then we would have had a championship within the last two or three years if you wrong things like that, so yep. Yep, but I heard he has raised this Miami team up to another level. I think one thing the Lakers have have proven to everyone else is that that small-ball I should have dead now, man, you gotta get big and athletic and I think if you yeah, you can have that big big person in the middle, but you gotta be mobile a little bit. I don't think you're an ordinary five person can go out on a three-point line and guard a d. So again that takes me back to draft of these kids got a six ten six eleven nine. The mind right now to me that are athletic that can go out there and defend 8, so you don't you think Golden State because I mean this is this is basically we're Golden State be back next year without you know, without KD will Revolt big three that they had great. I mean cuz that's they play small-ball won championships doing it, right? So are they that's why I'm saying it could Draymond defend Anthony Davis on the job market defend athlete Davis and Fremont can't defend. Yeah, LeBron James and Draymond can't defend Dwight Howard. He might be able to deal with develop McGee but those players because of his side their size and their ability to get up and rebound probably hard for him. So those days, you know, he might be able to guard them in a sense of I can guard this guy but he's like he can't stop them from spoiling or Bounty. I think that's the one thing that the Lakers are changed the NBA about right now, which I love I didn't like the small bulb is almost like you get five-ten five eleven guys out there everybody shooting brief and oh another quick name. I remember you heard from Michael Cooper on Showtime with poop soon and very soon. The NBA will adopt a four-point Chaat watch even say that it's not there's not the first thought you said this really are going to adopt that. The guy will see the ball way out there. You gotta give you guys credit LeBron pulled up one time. I mean well take Daniel little bit this guy driven two feet two dribbles past half-court and knock Alexis. How would you feel about a four-point line? I would love it. If you're emotionally free a quote on a big three ice cubes leave there. It's a great. It's a great day man. I mean you get some old school. Well guys, that won't like that. You know, I mean, you know, James Naismith what that's like you said, they old school basketball players wanted to a new new game. Now, these kids are learning how to shoot way way down there with you know, Steph Curry. Oh, yeah. Now you're right in four point shots and you're only getting give the guy for 4 instead of the three, but that's going to be even more small ball. You're going to hate that even more dead. Cuz that's going to even incentivize people to shoot, you know, these kids. Now. I'm going to be the old man now Coupe these kids now they they go up to the gym they walk up and they're suing from Steph Curry range. So they're going to have four point range so it can be a bunch of 6362 guys are great handles that are shooting for four point territory. That's what's good for you. Don't be out the teams and coaches to pull the reins on some of these guys cuz that shot isn't for everyone that's for your shoe out there. And if you get everybody shooting they just think of rebounds that are going to be there. So that's why you don't need that big guy anyway, but again, let's try this not for everyone. I wouldn't ask me to shoot that shot. LeBron is not a consistent for life when he has his full grown. He is Klay Thompson. He will be required light is now four point shooter KD. I don't think it's a windshield but it's a good 3-point shooter right, on the four point shot. May I don't know if I'd before it, you know, when they Smith when they supposed vented basketball they instead of they they they did a jump after every made basket. You know, that that was the original rules of basketball. No birth. Adding which is do a jump ball every time after every basket how ridiculous would that be? That would be it would be very ridiculous. That's why I look in basketball. And remember the lady was only about six feet wide Berth. I've I've done I look at those old pictures and just are amazed at basketball, but that tells you how this game has evolved into what it is today. And it's only going to get bigger and better. That's why you say you have to put in that four points. Now people going to fight against it. But Adam Silver's will do it watch and see about two three years possibly sooner cuz that's a big time Game Changer. You heard it here first on Showtime Michael Cooper told you. All right. So we talked about the Heat and what they're going to need to do. I think they're a team that definitely have to get big but they will be a definitely a contender in the South-East next year. I think a team that has run its course and I think you won't see them, Philadelphia. No, Philadelphia be good. I think. Could be able to compete it's not that true true Center but doc will kind of get him down there. But I think Milwaukee Bucks. I think they've had their run and the bubble really expose them as a team that I don't think is going to be that date on the list. I mean, I think they're still be a top-four team in the East but they won't be feared as much anymore look for Toronto to behave better. So so the West is always seemed like be on the East and that doesn't seem to have changed. I mean it's been like that forever early. The only time it wasn't like that was you know in the showtime era in the nineties, but then in the late nineties, it's just seem like it's been the West the whole I mean just a dominant stretch by the West for most of that period of time and end of it. I mean, She look at Golden State. I mean, obviously when LeBrons been in the East they there's there's been success there. But beyond that it just all the dominant teams have been in the west. Is there anybody like Denver's you know seem to be home for for a long time? They've got some good sized. You mentioned the importance of size that you know, do you think anybody's in the East can position themselves to sort of be on that level of the dominance? Cuz I thought even think that you said anybody close to Lakers this year and it's kind of been like that with golden state too. So I just I wonder if there's anybody that can make a move in the East that could get them closed down to the level of teams of the West the top of the West only team in the East can be the Brooklyn Nets. And the reason I say that is because with no way I do like they they A lotta believer in Kyrie Irving azoff. What I'm not a believer in Kyrie Irving was that Kyrie KD one believer in him, but and I think he'll be able to do it but some other young players that they have up there in the way those kids shot the three ball game. Several teams and kind of changing but you know, what if you look at this take the VIN Denver Nuggets and move them back to the East and never Nuggets win the East every year. Yeah, they play like East Coast team. They they play Slow Down totally totally think the passport look more like East Coast team. That's why it was hard for them to deal with the Lakers now, it would be a different story. If you plan for a championship, you put them to there anything can happen, but the Cradle Lakers and constantly get beat game after game. It's going to be difficult as well as with a club and all that. So yeah going to be fun basketball next year makers success was all accredited and everybody was saying Braun and AD which is true. Okay, but the Lakers was success. This season was 40% of their role players. Kcp Rajon Rondo. Caruso Dwight Howard Bar & Dwight Howard. I think those people came to show and they did this all without who I think is another asset to them that was about our every Bradley I think would have been a more of a different but what the Lakers are going to need and we're going to see if the Lakers front office now, but without magic if they can get up there and get that third, they need another third player that can get it done that don't have any lapses. That's not long have ten points one night and twenty-three the next night. They going to need that other place like 80 and LeBron that can get 18 for sure. They can get to the free-throw line eight or nine times by himself that will help the Lakers a lot and that will extend a m a d and LeBrons for will actually not extent but cut down there minutes so they don't have to be on the floor as much next season your thoughts. Yeah. I mean, you know, I am A couple a couple of years ago obviously talk about 3 stars on a team or you know for the big three or the big four, I guess maybe it was for Golden State and you know, so I don't know. Is it a is it a a just a bit too? The Lakers or was it just the NBA this year with more of a two-star thing? Cuz I mean, you're right. Normally it's you know, at least three Big Time Players to win titles and then you kind of look at the available free agency situation. You know, I'm just curious to see who who in that you know, who would be a good third. Okay. So let's start there who would ideally base on a skill set of LeBron and Anthony may be honest LeBron fits with any kind of skill-set, but Who is the type of player that I mean that that would be ideal for that? I mean Klay Thompson, right just a guy that you could spot up, you know a lot open threes with those who would have to be Ray Charles. They could I don't think he's available and just flickers not mean that really really good Market that page that example would be the ideal player. That's pretty much eBay play Thompson pretty good player. Yeah, very good player, but that's not going to happen. So let's say so I think if you know his dead play for Lakers, no kidding. No kidding got my Byron Scott. Yeah locker room organized for this day and it did happen to know the podcast. Remember we talked about. Yes. Yes. I know Michael Thompson, but you know, I think The Lakers are just just a solid player. I really do and like I said if when Avery Bradley comes back and he gets back into the folks. I think he's dead player. Yeah, but I think he leans a bit more on his defense. They need another like a Tyler hero somebody that can just concentrate just on shooting and can hit shots is unavailable. Yes, because Miami had two of them. I think they'll find that and that that'll be easy to get but what you're going to need is what the Lakers should not do you can't let Javale McGee leave and you can't let Dwight Howard lead them. You can't let those players leave because I think they're very very important. Yes. The playing time is something that those guys kind of bitching whine about a little bit. I'm pretty sure Maggie wasn't happy with his not playing the last two or three series, but again, that's just how it goes. But his value on the team is still high because the Lakers got three seven-footers were a lot of things don't have one. Rails rails called it what the disease of more and in one of the books he wrote where when you win everybody wants more, you know more playing time or money off, you know, more and more and more. So yeah, I mean, it's like that's one of the most important parts of winning in the NBA is getting guys to buy in and you're going to win titles and you're going to guys that make more money and go play somewhere else and get more minutes and score more points and you know, not everybody's gonna be Michael Cooper and sacrifice that you know forever for the sake of the team when you just said that that's chills down my body because that sounded really obviously there is Pat Riley, but it's the way you said it the disease of more and that was the one thing he used to preach about. Yeah, I think teams individuals would sacrifice back to Los Angeles and being this nice weather playing with LeBron playing with the team that has the potential to win another championship and I'm predicting now that they're wins wage. And Seventeen they win eighteen nineteen and twenty then the Lakers have to go Readjustment again. So I'm putting pressure on them. But that is the one thing that Pat Riley used to say about you know, sometimes it's not all about the fame or the money. It's about being part of something special and Rouse priest that a lot. I mean, do you want to be remembered or do you want to be forgotten people will forget a guy that's averaging 40 points one season and never wins people. Don't forget Champions and as much as we want to forget Caruso and Kosovo played like you never forget him cuz it won't Championship they got on your nerves cuz they went to hitting shots. But you know what they did a row, so I just I run it at you said that man and that that is the disease of more. I want more and more and more still sacrificing for the betterment of the team and for the betterment of something special, you know, I come here for the Lakers. That's the play with LeBron James. Just give our young person or 456 your player and I had the opportunity to come out sacrifice the money to come for this the Championships are hard to come by God. Yeah, no and that's ultimately again kind of, you know, Javale McGee and obviously initially that's why javel and and Dwight Howard or they're right. I mean for that opportunity to play with LeBron be in La win a championship game time when a little bit better for Dwight and with the Lakers then it's the last time you know, so now it's about well, will they continue to want that because you're right there, you know when you get it when you get guys a talent like those guys have you met at their age and then the the size, you know, get the buy-in at that is that's a rare trait that you know that allows you to win playing big, you know that you can't really as you mentioned play small-ball to beat that kind of style. You know. What and are you make a good point is that some guys might win a championship? Okay. I got my Championship now. I'm going to get paid right place. To you, they will regret that and there are players that have done that want to jump ship not believe it and you go off and grass ain't greener on the right side. And the north to win a championship is it's not a special and once you get down there and you look at that championship and you're in and in what January February and you guys are six and thirty eight and you can all the song is playing and you going out scoring Thirty thirty-five yet. Y'all still losing by 15 or 20 and you going home with that Championship. I can guarantee them guys say, you know, what if I can get back over there I drop this in a way because all money ain't good money my feelings. So in Lakers now the best the best biggest most championship franchise in sport in in the NBA, or is it the Celtics? Who's who's the one of the tide re and I know you want to start a conflict and Thursday. We're on East Coast West Coast be here. And right now we can say we're the best because you know what? I don't think Boston has it enough to get back to the Eastern Conference Finals. I don't think they have it in them. I think it all went out the window and unless they make a big major move then we'll see but again there if they play the Lakers they really got transferred over for one simply to the fact that they were too small. I mean, I definitely I definitely thought the Celtics would come out of the East you know, so I mean, I was surprised the heat ended up winning and off when you brought up teams that you thought might regress in the East. I thought you were going to mention the Celtics, you know, but I mean they obviously to see there there's certainly some talks cuz they try to trade Gordon Hayward and dead. You know, Danny Ainge doesn't you know doesn't sleep often. He's you know, he's constantly trying to evolve and change as long as they've got Tatum and brown, you know that core. You know, that that's a neat if you got to split them to you don't have to split them because it they're not playing well together and both of those players are identical players. If you have to have something a little bit dizzy, both of them are identical players and when you're trying to go out on a crunch time, you gotta have just something different, you know, like the Lakers and then even how comfortable with shifting around, you know, the biggest thing he made was to start kru. So you have to be able to do something because crucial brought a different look to the starting lineup at that moment. That's what the Celtics are going to have to be a big change for them. And I think Danny's going to pull the trigger on one of them watch Andy you just predicted that the Lakers were going to you know, when get up to twenty championships LeBron isn't what you just said, so so maybe they're dead. Maybe it's still Lakers and Celtics for Martinez. But maybe some new faces last year like Lakers move ahead with that. Next title go they don't go ahead and they going to go ahead and stretch it out, But look for. In Philadelphia. I think he's going to put a different mind sending them young players Minds back there. Hopefully in the coming out of the East next year now be different they can win it but coming out of Iraq. I think it'll be easier for doctors to do it in the East than it was on here on the West. So let me ask you because everybody else is talking about this right? It's you have to talk about it every year after the season and you have talked about the bronze Legacy right every year of his entire career every year every offseason talk about LeBron's Legacy. Like I I I hate Legacy talk because you let it play out right like why we talked about guys Legacy. He's still playing Thursday. We are we just evaluating his legacy against the backdrop of a player. It's just so hard to evaluate a player's Legacy against history and we've talked about it obviously with Kareem. I mean, I think I think cap is dead. Very underrated terms of this discussion, right? But I tell you if LeBron winds up to twenty, you know up to Lakers championship number 20, they probably won't be much of a conversation if LeBron wins. So yes for now if he wins three more a lot of gives up seven. Yep. You almost home have to say he's the best player ever played and but And I'm a I'm a a decade or generation that point in time in history. The thing about LeBron. He's so big so talented it's so good that LeBron could have played in the seventies and the eighties in the 90s 2000s and he could still be doing the things he did that to me. It's a difference between all other place. I think Michael Jordan has that same ability magic has that same ability. There's a few but tab just a different different breed than my cap get to I would get put cap in that area. I would put yeah, I could probably in that effort to kill Neil. I throw him in there cuz Chef downfall is free throw shooting fast. As you mentioned. I may come when I I may come when I'm supposed to or something like that. Yeah, I hit him when they come. So in that case, but there's so many great ones. Jerry West I think could have played in almost any any decade, Elgin Baylor God is worthy. So you got a lot but cuz they have dominated like LeBron is dominating now because the field is limited on athletic players and I think people are scared of him. But if you go back in time do the nineties, especially in the eighties, they have people LeBrons size that can handle that physicality. He throwing people but still he had athleticism to where he could have still been that great player. He's a cool. He's a gold now. Will it be all the time go? If he and I think he's going to get close if he passes Corinne's all-time scoring record. I gotta be able to bring on the greatest player ever play this game right now. I don't think of just between Kareena a lot of place about titles to him, titles though. How much does that matter points Matt? And cuz I mean LeBron obviously the bronze a great score but he's not you know, that's not his most that's not what you associate with LeBron. You mean it's a great all-around player. He is great. You know, he's off he's got mad. There's some magic there where he's able to you know, he's such a great distributor and handles the ball well and initiates offense and and so does he got does he have to be cream and points and and and Michael and entitles? Yeah, I would say that and I figure a rare when you get five. I'm one of the lucky ones to have five championships and when you move up there that's rare and you go ahead and get sick with Jordan and you know, yeah, he's if LeBron can pull off these next three And it's going to be real crucial to him to do it in the next three years because you don't have to win it gets easier when you win and you keep winning, but if you win and you lose and you gotta read fire your stuff up and regenerate the whole thing that's hard to do. So that's why it's going to be important next year that the Lakers surround him with good player. But if he can pull off these next three in a row LeBron James I would consider him probably the greatest player to ever play and he gets close. I think even if he breaks Karl Malone comes in second here would be considered up there on the on the boat list. Hi. When did you start playing the game? Seventy-nine? How old are you? I was twenty twenty-two twenty-two twenty-three. So LeBron has played in NBA season, eighty-two games and an additional 30 some plus 40 games in the playoffs. Basically every year since he was eighteen years old. That is an insane amount of mileage on his body, but the guy keeps himself and he has no I know I'm agreeing with you the fact that he's able to still play at this level at this age with that mileage is incredible so long that's what gets them in the conversation for sure. I agree I think because of his and he went through more to your point and all of the miles he's had over all the playoff series and Gabe's holy cow, that'd be incredible. I mean, All right, always brag about this mathematician put down in in numbers all the time that we play the time that we spent on the court. We meaning myself and Magic Jack worthy. You put all these numbers down and when you put him down and strung them all together, it said that myself and magic and James Worthy ran around the world three and half times. Can you imagine how much is rough time? He hasn't run around World least several time with some more miles to go because tell you truth is in the primary life basketball-wise. He has he just joined but what is he thirty-five thirty-six thirty five or the same age? You're right there, man. You're right there from the age of they say twenty eight twenty nine to 33 34 is when you're in the prime of your Escalade Sports life. Yeah when you're at your best song You the strongest you can be you got the basketball to your smart. You do all the right things. He's right there. So I would love to see how many times he ran around the world song. That's insane. If I were you I'd never run again surprised. You don't have like you new hip noonies new new ankles news. I got me one new here, but I'm working on the other one off the year. I'm have to get that one retired. Uh, I mean, I'll need a new hip at a few years here, and I've never run around the world. All right, there you have it my assessment on Los Angeles Lakers. Good job. Lakers. Good job. Twenty-twenty was a fantastic season with the odd one because all the things that went on. Can you believe these guys played a year all year round bass crazy real crazy, and I can't wait to see what because there's always been, you know, the NBA start right around this time of year and every year it picks up nationally ride Christmas, right? Like that's the thing. The Christmas is like the decline of like this is what you should start walking the NBA so I'm just curious to see what the way the schedule is going to change next year obviously because of the ending how that what that will look like, you know, and then I mean this is going to change the ambience ever who knows if there's another bubble situation that I mean, who knows we might we might have to be another bubble to start the year next year cuz they're there that we could still be in a situation where if there has a bit of Acts eat or some days were you know, there's just not a comfort level playing in going City to City. Well, I think that's going to be the issue is that they'll probably have maybe I would say three major places one on the web app one in the East and somewhere in the middle and I think obviously Miami's weather in in Orlando the the bubbles there might be the whole East Coast right choice to go there and play and they'll probably you probably will stay there for like a week playing games. Then you'll move to the next spot after you get tested it if this continues the way it is you get tested wage. United States somewhere in the midwest somewhere and play seven or eight games. But if Adam Silver can pull off this with the group that he had them figure out how to get the NBA back on track again and obviously is not to be safety is going to be the first and foremost important thing, but I really I was wondering how they get it. They pulled it off but I really enjoyed this NBA season. I really did it. It was a very unique experience that I mean, you're right. It's crazy to think you went for a full year. Like that's insane. And I mean it it there will never be another one like this certainly hope not but that's why this one has to be different than any other Championship right out their family back in one place at one time. No strip clubs. No bars know after when Pat Riley calls per fill opponents. None of that was going on you were in a bubble and you stayed in there. You stay home. Your team and we broke the rules and you hurt me a team. That's why this one has to be it goes down at Numero Uno man to win this one here away from your family. All right, see that's perfect. That's like 45 minutes and I think I don't know if your other stuff prepared, but we should do that next week then if you want to okay, and I'm going to get Rob fukuzaki. He's an ABC guy out here. He does by slam dunk show with me. Nice as a lot of insight a lot of things here, you know, I bet he's awesome tastic totally. All right. All right pleasure, man. You too, buddy. peace out

I'm Dr Adams and I am. An anchor podcast. One! Up this Adams and this is episode eight hundred Dart Against Humanity? I decided to do this episode because. Every sign was pointing to it and win. Everything seems to be pointing to something. You shouldn't avoid. You should go towards it. I've done. A million of zoom calls skype calls and interviews. Over the past today's the twenty third, so the past three plus weeks. Back. The back the back to back into session and recently a lot of my calls. Interviews. Foreigners. Discussions I've had all had to do. All pointed in some way to black and Latino ratio and Boston. Did an article I was interviewed an article by Dash Amore in the Boston Globe and it was about. Different things being renamed. And put up in Boston and how I felt about it. I said a lot of it seem performance live, and some of it was cosmetic and I'm going to judge things on their long lasting change in the commitment to doing it. One of the things that happened is there's been a monument does drove me insane mine entire life pretty much since I've been conscious human being. I live in south and low Roxbury. I now live even closer to wit I. Live on Columbus. Serve, which is a laugher, and it's and of itself and. Apart. Plaza Section of Boston which is less than a five minute walk from me. There is a statue of. Abraham Lincoln. And this about emancipation, I didn't know there were two of these statues in the nation. And the first one is in Washington DC and Boston somehow got the second one. I don't know why. And then also found out something. I didn't know is that they've been a history of people wanting gone. and. Someone who's a local politician, a black politician actually defended it saying that you know black freed people actually raise the money for it to be erected, and I've hated it my entire life. It's a picture of Abraham Lincoln and uh, slave, or black person on their knees. He's like has his handle room like he's emancipating them. My contention is this Monument. Never should have existed in Boston, because what happened in Boston is between seventeen, seventy, three and seventeen eighty three. A bunch of freed black people in some who were on slaves. PETITIONED THE COURTS And the Massachusetts legislature. For them to be free, they put an a freedom petition. Paul cuff wrote a whole bunch of things about representation and taxation and ultimately. made the black man because black women. Were allowed to do anything. Women weren't allowed to vote. Could were the first. People. There weren't white in the entire nation to be able to serve on a jury that was seventeen eighty and then We had two different of people that were slaves. Time sued their owners, slash masters. In court. For Abuse. and Sue for their freedom. They both won a Kwok Walker and Elizabeth. Freeman I believe that aims were. And after they soothing were freed, they both sued for reparations. Okay And after all these different winds kept happening. Through the legal system. and seventeen eighty three after. Ten Years of just black folks just going ham on the legal system. and making advancements Massachusetts I said Fuck we're just GONNA own abolish slavery. So they abolish slavery in seventeen, eighty three. And my contentious, always bended all the people that were instrumental in that happening between seventeen, seventy, three and seventeen, eighty three should have a monument instead. Of Lincoln because that's the immense patient thing that happened that emancipation went into was signed in eighteen, sixty five, and then it didn't really going to affect until now there's June teeth. But eighty two years before that. Boston's black folks fought for their own freedom. Before pretty much anybody else in the colonies slash country. That's what we should be celebrating. But. We're not and when I said this the dossier she was like. What like this happen for real and I'm like? Yeah, it's like I didn't know that thing is very few people know that. There are people that know it in Boston, but very. Few people know what. Of, Boston why because black contributions or achievements by Bostonians or Massachusetts? Residents are largely erased from history, because Boston does not embrace black or Latino contributions. At all. When you think about Boston the face of Boston is always wiped. The Lens through which is portrayed as always white. And this is incredibly frustrating for someone like me. Now. After I I did that interview about fifteen minutes before I picked up the phone and did the interview with Don't theory podcast. And? He asked me about it. I told them what it was. And then we started talking about black ovation in Boston and I went in on this fact. that. The reason black people who are from Boston, have this stigma or the or get abuse from black and Latinos outside of the city or nationwide is because their view of Boston is overly white. And what that does is one. It presents the idea. The Boston is a super white city. And we don't exist. Because the image of Boston being very. unfriendly. Towards, anyone any non white, group. Is Prevalent. And the only way to combat that is if there were some different linked if there was some different stories. Or different narratives. Out there to show life Boston, life through non non white is. And the thing is that when you think of celebrities from Boston if I was to ask you. The name me five non white Bostonian celebrities, a lot of people would be hard, pressed or non white celebrities from Massachusetts. They'd be hard pressed to do it. Where whereas someone from Boston could rattle off a list like nothing, they'd be like Ou Deuba. They say Diane Guerrero. They say Brian White. They say Pooch Hall Michael Beach. You know in like the list goes on and on. If you're talking about like the Internet, you got people like Reto Braun. Sam Jones the third. Would just and you just keep going you think about? People on the radio. There's Cherry Martinez Does Maya the bee, but the thing is if your not from here. You don't know that if you're not from here. You don't own a Jasmine Solano. Star radio career here or or if you're not from here, you don't. You weren't listening to W R B B and kissed one away in the home in the mid eighties and then Wendy Williams started her radio career here. Because black contributions, the Boston are largely race I'm sitting in an apartment again. Whereupon Ron, McNair. Lived when he taught martial arts into south and low Roxbury, and went to school at Mit and play jazz and local area clubs like these. These are things we know because we were told, and we lived here, but nobody outside of it knows I further made Example that when I go online, looking up things like the Rainbow Coalition and all the rainbow coalition offices there's no mention of the Rainbow Coalition Office in Boston which is odd because it's one of the first one will coalition offices, why because one of the earliest contributors to the Rainbow? Coalition going back to project breadbasket, days and operation push. Was Mel. King was friends with Martin. Luther King Junior while he was a student at BU getting his own getting his doctorate and when he met Coretta Scott King. Met My neighborhood dated in my neighborhood bleed at one point. They both lived on NASA had an apartment on massive, wanted apartment further down on massive and a place that should be a museum and me. John talked about this all the time. This place should have been preserved. It should be a museum. In everyb-, and it is a trip is a testament to black history in our contribution Boston I give tours in his neighborhood and when I tell these kids that go to a school called the school, and when I tell them all of the things that are contained just in this small area. They are in shock that everybody doesn't know about it. Again, I grew up. In south in Lower Roxbury on massive. Between Columbus Avenue and tremont. Now, the thing about that is. Growing up, I was always told these stories. About! Martin Luther King Junior about Quincy Jones who lived on pembroke street when he went to the Schiller School, which is now known as Berkeley College of Music I was told stories about Miles Davis hanging out with certain people. People had Miles Davis stories and these people had so many stories. I thought that just pulling my leg. Telling the little kid lies just to get me going. They told me about Sammy Davis. Junior growing up in different buildings all on Columbus. And off an off of it. They tell me about A. Different Jazz musicians like count, basie or or Cab Calloway cab Calloway's big sister, Blanche and Mike. They'd just tell me all these stories of black musicians and James. Brown Saving Boston from burning down and under slide what? Like y'all just making stuff up because if there was all this black history in Boston, then this would be in every book and nobody talks about Boston in that way to talk about Harlem. Talk about Chicago talk about Detroit. They talk about like Mississippi, they talk about New Orleans. Is these places of rich vibrant black history. But Never Boston Harlem. And then I find out. There are a lot of it has to do with Pr. WHO's framing the history? Who's telling the story and erasure? Which I didn't know was a word. Like I grow up learning the. America's of relationship with put the vehicles starts probably like eighteen, ninety eight and early emissaries between the US Puerto Rico were from Boston. Of the first people to move from Puerto Rico. To Boston happened between the nineteen tens in the nineteen twenties. Early on. And then enough Puerto Ricans began moving to Boston but when they moved. They usually move to the same place. South End. And Lower Roxbury. Then, later into Roxbury. On by the time we get to the forties and fifties, the black population Latino population starts to climb slowly. But they're concentrated in the south end low Roxburgh. This is where I live. and then once we get to the sixties and Seventies. The population explodes. And they are diverted to say with me. Sell Thin Law Roxbury into Roxbury, then into Dorchester. And in later on out into different parts of Massachusetts different countries, different cities in Townsend Massachusetts to the point where now they are multiple towns in Massachusetts that are majority Latino. When people think East Boston. They think Latinos. You know they're different towns where the population is so heavily Latino. That people kind of right those towns off which is insane to think places like Brockton got tagged as being scary or unsafe, and a lot of it has to do with the fact that there's a heavy a population of Brown people living there. There's this double talk about Dorchester. Being unsafe or dangerous and I went back and checked and when did this start? It starts win. The population gets browner and Browner. And the reason people leave out Roxbury. Oh, every time there's some violence something violent that happens on the news or someone gets shot, and you see Roxbury in their immediately. Is largely because it has a connotation of being black, following the white flight into sixties. In slightly before that. And seventy going forward Roxbury is left. To the black and Latino populations, and the said that during that time. This is when economic. Disparity really occurs I discovered again a between. Nineteen, fifty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred seventy. We used to have before that time. There were a whole bunch of places with full liquor licenses entertainment licenses. In. the Southend Law Roxbury into Roxbury neighborhoods. We're talking venues. They can play music. Sell Liquor self food. Between Nine, hundred, fifty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy pretty much. All of them are shut down or burn down. Besides one and that one ends up being on Wali's which was across the street. Where it was all these Paradise Analysis while these jazz club. And in the the Er, a Boston Redevelopment Association. Following nineteen, Sixty, eight, sixty nine. People. Start petitioning spaces one of those. Places got spot was Bob Chefs now. Bob was working in one of these area jazz clubs. The got shut down along massive. And Him and his wife used to cook in the kitchen and sell food to people, and they came up with this thing called glorified chicken lower. Fried Chicken. And it was so popular. That people were like you're gonNA. Open up spot, so they opened up a spot on. Say with me. Columba Save. Now Mind you when I was a kid, my very first bus stop. Across the street from Bob the chefs. And, my second bus stop was down the street from it. It was on the corner. My bus stop was on the other corner on the same side of the street. So. Black! Boston is always something that was embedded in me. I grew up again on. My block the corner. There's tremont street. There's the one bus bus stop and the hospital was born in was Boston city hospital I could see it right out my window if I walked down the street, the beginning of the block. On. That corner is in double ACP, building the same. P. Building. Martin Luther. King Junior and Kereta used to meet and everybody used to do. They're organizing that small building on that corner it. If you go there now, you don't know what that building is repainted refurbished painted old has a huge fence on it. There's no plaque denoting what it is. The only people that know what it is people that used to live in our neighborhood. I gotTA. Tell you pretty much nobody who lives there now. was, living there. In the eighties, it was actually A. An active office. which is said but. Defection and Boston is one of the most heavily gentrified cities I think as top three. And it slightly behind. San Francisco to give you an idea. HOW SCARY THAT! Growing up. We will also told in a sense that. Nobody. Wants to hear about Boston because when they think Boston, they don't think black soul kind of keep it quiet. New addition were kids and they got signed. They were I signed a streetwise right. So yeah and their videos. If you look at videos, they're wearing Boston stuff. They got Boston. Habits did dancing in Boston Candy. Girl is all along My neighborhood South in law Roxbury in the Back Bay, which is also connected right to those cities right to places all candy, Girl Starts. At the front of a train station, the L. was torn down in nineteen, eighty seven. A one of the diners there was right along that street. which no longer exists in Roxbury They walked down the Commonwealth. Avenue, mall which is right in the back bay which is right next to? Sell Thin Laura Mary they're the hatch shell which is on? The Charles River, which is in walking distance. There in front of the new John Hancock building which is right there near Copy Square, which is right in my neighborhood around the corner from me so every when you look at their, but and then they did the popcorn. Love video is an Orchard Park. So early on, they couldn't avoid being Boston. But when you think Boston, you do not think black. which is sad. Because the man who's the father of the Harlem Renaissance. Was Living. In Boston and Cambridge for years came up with the idea for what the Harlem Renaissance is largely. Because of living. In an experiencing a Roxbury. The self end. And Beacon Hill. which was rich, were black history the African meeting. Church the Black History Museum. All these things are early. Indicators of like. Boston's black experience and its influence. If you go back to history. And the black experience in America. You have to start with Boston the first sizable settlement of black people, especially free black people. goes back to six to sixteen fifty S. In Boston's North End, a place called Either Lou Guinea or New Guinea. And it was in the North End. It was by the waterfront. People could work by the water, and also that could work his home as tradespeople. Right there in the north end that population later migrated and moved to Beacon Hill. which later moved again into Roxbury and the South End, and then later into Dorchester. And the great migration lead even more people from the south. INTO BOSTON'S BACK Bay lower. Roxbury Roxbury Dorchester later. Matt a pain, too. The sad part is that. We're so a race to the point. Where whenever the idea of anything Boston comes up. The Whiteness of Boston is immediately used as a selling point. And at the same time any Brown, people who live in Boston are automatically erased. Case in point. If we look at sports events. it's always. The culture team versus AH Boston team. And everybody in the culture, meaning the massive black and Latino. In America pull for a VO Culture team so I've always experienced being a very brown person who loves the Celtics I'm looking at. A Celtics long sleeve black shirt this by Adidas. Bit My sister went through pain to try to find because she knows I only wear Adidas Celtics gear. Now, you're looking at all of the black and Latino Celtics Patriots. Red Sox fans. against. Everybody else and we always gets shit on why we catch strays. Why because we don't exist in their minds? Because all Boston is is white people. Forget the reality of Boston when I was a kid growing up, my first year in Baltimore School, system with seventy, nine eighty, so. Between seventy nine eighty and I say eighty, four eighty five. I was in. Kindergarten one to fourth grade by the time the fifth grade. There are barely any white kids. Remaining in my classroom. By the time I get to a sixth grade, which is. The eighty six eighty seven school year at the James P penalty in Roxbury on Roxbury Street, the heart of Black Boston. There are so few black kids. They're the the ones that are. There aren't even blessed anymore because they couldn't get enough. Kids on the bus because their parents wouldn't agree to send them. They had to take public transportation and the brand new. Orange Line which was built as they tore down. The elevated train line which ran through the black part and Latino Par Boston. There was a trainee straight through Dudley Square which is now Nubian Square. It's gone. The economic power. That was in the South End Lower Roxbury in Roxbury was pretty much erased when I told you between nineteen, fifty, nine and nineteen seventy, the all of those places were full liquor licenses, entertainment licenses either burnt down were shut down. And there were left for one, all that economic power disappeared from that neighborhood. and also there was a time when if you wanted to go shopping? You could just you can go to W square. You didn't have to go to downtown crossing. In the same amount of time all the economic power was stripped from Dudley Square and removed to downtown, crossing now for someone like me who grew up in the south in the Roxbury. Dudley Square. Is a twenty twenty five minute walk from where I live however. Downtown crossing is a fifteen ten fifteen minute walk from my neighborhood, so it didn't affect me that much, but let's say I lived in Dorchester the sale of the medicine. What closer? Dudley squares far closer. Than Down Crossing. I just happened to be near everything. In My neighborhood that makes me equidistant from fenway. Park which is a place. We didn't go when I was a kid because it was hostile black people. And also Boston Garden which I didn't go to. Either because it was told to me that the north end was very. DANGEROUS FOR BLACK KID TO GO But I watched them on TV. Now with WHO wants about a ratio to. And how it appears to media. One of the things I talked about was. There was a documentary that was done about on. The Boston Red Sox called the curse of the ban beano. There was only one black person who who was a contributor to it was Howard Bryant our Brian wrote the book shutout. A friend of mine Howard Bryant a one of my favorite journalists me. Reading shutout gave me the idea that maybe I could write. In the space I read that book twice back to back. I was just enthralled me right now. He's on screen for about ninety seconds. After they did the black thing and got the black belt the way they're talking to everybody else. Different kinds of white people. Variety away people from all over New England comedians on Brown eyed white folks, blue-eyed white folk, White Foltz, where Hazel is women men White, still some. Different backgrounds different ethnicities. Some sets of ethnic ethnic groups within white folks. And they talk about The Red Sox near experience with the Red Sox. Nary a Latino black person was interviewed as if we had no fucking experience growing up with the red. SOX, my history to results goes back to nineteen seventy eight. That was my first season being a red sox fan and it ended with me learning that I should hate the Yankees because of them losing one. Game playoff I saw that Serb leave. I was three years old when I saw it, and I've hated the Yankees ever since that would be a great fucking story to tell all the kids played on Franklin field all the kids they played it on. What is now Louis Theon Park. All the kids that played in what's now called James Rice field and Roxbury. All the kids the played it on. A Carter playground played baseball where my cousin Al used to play his one of the. The Boston Astros. Fat would have been very. Own Great to include in either the curse of the Bambino Air the second part. Reverse the curse by HBO which is interesting because. Again and this part they should whole new interviews with the same of. Crazy spectrum of white folks. And the same piece by Howard. Brian is still there and Brown. People only get ninety motherfucking seconds. Moreover. There have been multiple documentaries done about the Celtics and Lakers. Of One of them really felt like a slap in the face was always Celtics Lakers Celtics, a best of enemies and the perspective over the voice over is done on one side I believe ice cube, and the other side is done by. Donnie Walk Berg Not Mark Wahlberg. Donnie Wilbert now. It's interesting because you have ice cube during an original one side. And Donnie Wahlberg joining another side. We could business. You know. If, you should match it up with something equivalent. You know like you couldn't get anybody. BOUGHT BLACK FROM BOSTON. To do this no one you couldn't have gotten Howard. You couldn't adopt, but John Bain, and also the other point. Is that Whenever. There's like a game played in Boston. On ABC or back in the days on NBC and they would play regional music. It would always be white ax. If the Celtics playing the Philadelphia Seventy sixers. You'RE GONNA. Hear a sweet emotion by aerosmith going to hear freeze frame by J gals band. You know you're GONNA. Hear, you might think by the fucking cars. A. Who's GonNa? Drive you? Whom some Shit like that? Or, you might even hear like. Billy Squire Ability Squire Song you know something like that. You're never gonNA Donna summer. You Never GonNa here new edition. Never, go here, it'll Gina bulldogs got have. You sure as hell never gone here, an R. S. O. Song. That's not gonNA happen. But there are other options. When the Patriots played the played the the Eagles in the Super Bowl on one side you have will smith representing the Eagles and. BOSTON! You have fucking Michael, Chiklis. And when you do. Interviews on ESPN. Who Represents Boston fucking Steve Chorale Steve Corral? And it just goes to show you the. When it comes to Boston, we are thought of and if we're not thought of these outlets than we're not thought of by our own people. If you ask the average person name, five famous, non white boss, donations, or or people from Massachusetts. It would be like. Doodoo and that is the effectiveness of the erasure, and what that does is hammer's end. We don't exist and then a hammers, and we can shit on them non stop because they have no representation, and and when you when you search your memory, Hey, wait a minute I don't I can't name a single fucking neighborhood in Boston. That has brown people in it. Therefore, they don't exist. Therefore, they're irrelevant. Therefore I can feel free to shit on them because there'll be no retribution. So! We're not I. Done on Internet started writing. First thing I put my bio first thing I didn't. Anything was right Bostonian, and I made it very clear I'm Brown. I made it very clear on black and Latino in anytime. Someone had any sideways Shit to say about Boston I was on your ass immediately. Because, I had to fight in entire life. Of erasure. And people thinking they could just say and do whatever the fuck they want about my city and my people. Without anything happening. 'cause we don't exist with smurfs were snorts. We're not real. And it took years of me doing this. Going it, everybody in everything's shutting down. Anybody who said anything. About my city talked about it without having fucking live here. Set Foot here. Maybe spent like I visited there once. We gives a fuck I've lived here for forty plus years every day. You don't get to speak over me. 'cause you don't know what you're talking about. This is my life. This is my lived experience and it took years of me doing that for other people were like. Yeah, because I. Kind of opened that lane and made and made it. Air quotes may be cool to do. You couldn't defend Boston because the problem is the being a brown person defending Boston people immediately think that your defending all the racism. And I'm not I am the fucking enemy of that I go to war with things like on. would you call them Barstool? I go to war with those dudes. I've been in the streets knocking out boroughs. Sits the late eighties I've been choking out does and racists Douche bags with the collars? Since the late eighties, I've been living initiative been fighting it. I've been shutting people down. Since the late eighties early nineties as a teenager with mustache with six feet, tall, getting harassed by Boston police. Going back to store case. The first time I was at a gun pulled on me. As a kid. Because they thought I was grown, asked me. Because I don't get the same shakes or I'm not afforded the same things as somebody who's not white. So I grew up in the south end or Roxbury again, saying it's like fucking leap at least an avenue leasing the blacks. She keeps saying Shit over and over again. or I am a lawyer. So. I grew up in the south end, and in the south end and Roxbury. We have via Victoria and we have like other neighborhoods like that. People don't know exist. And the history of that neighborhood is crazy because it's on youtube. There's a whole fucking documentary on Youtube about the creation of this neighborhood. It's insane. And I'm like Yo like and the crazy thing to create end to go further into the black racer, right? I'll be watching something and is talking about. This thing this black thing that showed it was came out nine hundred sixty came out here in nineteen, Sixty, eight, the first of its kind of ninety sixteen and I'm like wait. Say Brother was before those. Then I dig deep until why don't why doesn't anybody ever give Saybrook? Say. Brother is props being the first black show of its kind in the nation, predating even soul train. Pre and I found out why. Now, so say brother was created following of the the assassination of Martin Luther King Junior, and James, Brown being in Boston. And them coming up with the idea to keep people at home to. Broadcast James Brown's concert. At the Boston Garden which is something a local station. W. G. H.. Just didn't really think to do and didn't have the resources to do. And they hadn't thought of. And they had to do it on. Short notice. So what they had to do was figure out how to Mike up the Boston Garden. For a live concert. figure out how to get the truck and everything else all the cables there and then you had to rearrange the cameras for live shows something they had never done. That we're going to broadcast live plus tape it. Now in the process of doing this, they ran to a whole bunch of community leaders. And organizers. From Boston's Black Latino on leadership and populations, and they realized a going forward. We're going to have to do some things going to have to have some shows gonNA. Do some stuff out of it came a show called. Say Brother. Save brother. was organized by a man named topper. Koru, from Roxbury. Would go on to dude me putting a plate in a in. A top accrue who go on to our right and direct shows like one of the first shows representative presented Black Boston. Black Population Boston cold off the righteous. was aired on PBS in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty one. Look it up on Youtube Introduce Boston faulk. On the low to a wide audience. And also, he was a musician to top coup musician too, and dome. Another guy is a guy who is going to school in Boston at the time named Stan Lake then. When a great things that Stanley and created was say brother, another thing was Sonali `then. and say brother debuted in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty eight. And it embarrassed a bunch of different stations along the east coast. Because Boston. Made some black, she it strictly for the black population by the Black Population I. So. What is New York and New Jersey do? They poach the staff from save brother. As directors writers. Of another show. THAT DEALS IS A. Interview Slash performance show. For black performers, a form for black performers. It's cold. Soul Sou apostrophe. So they would do say brother, and then they will go to New Jersey and New York and then do that show. Now Mind you? How come everybody knows about soul? They don't know about say brother well. Here's the thing. Soul. Had the luxury. Of being eared everywhere. Instead of just one area. So if you want, say brother and Boston, which is W. G. B.. H., two and forty four, and then you get aired certain places in New England. Whereas Seoul was picked up. Everywhere. So when Seoul was a writing his tagline, it was like the first of show. By black folks for black folks. And they used a special word. To, show that. If anybody goes back and checks. We're right and what it did was it ought at it simultaneously a- waste the existence of say brother because they were using their staff already. Keep in mind that using their staff already. They don't air outside of New England. And here we're broadcast everywhere. Now of course, soul doesn't last forever and say brother still goes on today and is called basic black. But. When people talk about talk about that, nobody talks about Boston had to show that pre dates. Soul train that predate soul. The predates the other show fit. saw tweet four today that. Was a black forum, the first black forum like. It was basically political, nine, hundred, sixty eight. They got the idea after seeing. Say Brother in Seoul. They're like we need to create another black show showcase. Boston started that entire wave black Boston started at entire creative wave. We. Don't get the credit because we've been erased from the compensation tally. Another. Thing that really fucking hurt me. Hurt my fucking heart. Now I've grown up with music. My entire life I WAS IMMERSED IN THE IN R&B Funk and soul by being a Boston. Kid Boston had his own brand funk called Boston later. People. Branded it's space funk. That was our chamber. That was our thing. We did it better than everywhere else, okay. Between one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, nine, and nineteen, eighty, three, eighty four. The took over. Now. A documentary comes out which is produced by Nelson George. Nelson George calls the documentary finding the funk and I'm excited for this documentary because I know Nelson George wrote liner notes. For some of the Boston, funk In Boston groups albums, not only that, but he covered a lot of these groups when he wrote for the billboard. So I'm like yeah, I can't wait to see what the Boston lineup in the Boston groups when they do the Boston part of finding the phone and I. Know Author Baker. Is also a consultant on the show so I was like Yo yes, this is going to be crazy. Boston. Wasn't mentioned once. Not fucking wants. So. This means that author Baker in the Johnson crew. who were part of groups who created and were parts of groups like? Glory. North thinned. Google them if you never fucking hurt them. No mention at them. There's no mention of. The energetics! No mention of them. No mention a planet patrol they don't exist no much into Johnson. Crew, the Johnson brothers or Johnson crew. They don't exist. A. I'm just sitting there. and. Like. How was this fossil possible stars Computer Band They never happened. No mention of New addition first album, basically being Boston funk production never happened. No mention of how Boston. Pretty much started the timeline of electoral which blew up in La. And let hip hop. Slash free style. Because the guys from Boston used to work in a studio in New York, too, and among the many people that worked under them include SHEP pettibone. Includes the Latin rascals. And the guy named Marlon Williams known is Molly Mall Molly Malls started sampling. Because he would watch the Boston funk. Guys Produce Dance Music as he termed it. Using samplers like the fairlight. He found out a way to sample by mistake. After being frustrated with seeing what they were doing, because he wanted to use sampling techniques strictly to make rap music. So all this, she gets a raced. I didn't interview not too long ago with K. fresh on his podcast Detroit Renaissance and I was talking about the frustration I had growing up, knowing about all the Boston funk, all stars and their contributions to black music and to pop music, the goal completely unrecognized. Prince Charles Alexander Mentor pretty much. Everybody worked with everybody. was a contemporary of princes. Was Big, overseas, and was big in the fucking and the book and bad boy blowing up. And one of the engineers also die from Boston. And it's insane because all these people. Don't get any fucking recognition because they don't exist. Donna summer, being from Boston was never mentioned. When new addition young! Seemed like they pretty much made it a point to like a downplayed them being from Boston because that's not black. There was a back in the days. There was a a a Boston black semi pro. Team! That played like an inaugural leagues and blow it. They were Roy giant the Boston royal giants, but when they toured and played elsewhere, they presented themselves as the Philadelphia royal giants why? Because no one associated blackness with Boston. So when they went and played elsewhere with Philadelphia world giants, but when they played in New England and Wolf everybody's asses there the Boston royal giants when he played in Boston, they get to be the Boston world giants. That's fucking insane, but by the same token. The globetrotters weren't from Harlem. Don't from Chicago, but when you travel in your black, you present yourself as the Harlem globetrotters because that represents blackness. How did that happen? Pr Back in the days of the old moving all movies, anything goes black. You, put Harlem. Harlem Dandies Harlem Sat in Steppers Harlem. This Harlem this or Dixie Holliman Dixie. If you go up and down, the Back Bay Lower Roxbury back days. Look at the names of the club. Everything was a little dixie. The distance that the Harlem this, but the difference being was the musicians from Harlem used to get on the train. From Harlem get off at the. At Bat at the Back Bay station. Which is right? In the Back Bay South Bengal Roxbury area and. Live been all the different places and the woman houses and perform it all the jazz clubs in Boston for years. Why because back in those days? Those racists practice Cole Don. Cabrera Cabaret card practice. Where if you do not own a cabaret card, you couldn't perform in New York. So Hala musicians pack dish it up gone to train came to Boston and lived life. Played Notre Clubs. Lifted up. Made albums made songs made twelve and traveled all around the country from here. There's very few books are documented or anything documenting that. And it said because again anything about Boston as do anything. Black or Latino is a raced. Again ask anybody or yourself. Sit there and name five non white black. Or five non white on Boston or Massachusetts celebrities. And then the other thing is it like how can there be? No representation of Black Boston when you think about. Our, Yana President Exist Maryland most be exists where they from Dorchester and Roxbury. Like if you go back through history. Of. Who did what? They came here and lived here or from here. When you look at Miles Davis Band. You Got Chick Corea. You Got Tony Williams Twenty Williams from Roxbury. Chick careers from Massachusetts. Came and lived in Boston and Roxbury. Whenever. Miles Davis went on tour when he wanted to get the Rio and he wanted to perform. Any any wanted to be around real people and experience you. He came to Boston when he came back. His comeback shows the Kicks Club. Right in right in this neighborhood back home and nineteen one. He brought his woman with them Sicily Tyson and to do some to all his Boston boys. KNOW HIS BOSTON! Bryher her right with them. and. This is the first place he can. Because this is where he felt home aside from New York. There's a fucking reason for that. But the thing is that again as I, say this walking back and forth and the apartment Ron McNair lived in when he went to MIT. But if I went on Wikipedia I couldn't find any mention of it until after that Article Okay player. And then all of a sudden there when I went on twitter, and made a rant talking about the rainbow coalition and how they don't talk about this or rainbow. Coalition in Boston was the first autism. Boston because the contributions and Mel King all of a sudden. I go to wicky of there. So me, being loud and talking and shouting motherfuckers down. His literally changed. Something's not enough not fast enough. Because everywhere, I look, there's always some mediocre white folks. who were given the task of representing Boston. Even though they don't deserve it. Whether it be Bill Simmons. Whether it be that asshole that runs on Barstool sports. This is the face of Boston. When Maria menounos popped up all of a sudden Bam. She's the girl the Boston. Also do end Diane. Guerrero showed up on orange. Is The new black? They, still didn't get that same distinction. And that show was a breakout hit for years. Why is that? When Mindy Kaelin came out, I knew mindy caning back when she was going to school with my cousin Nora. Okay. And then all of a sudden I see on Conan O'Brien. Show talk as a writer and she's talking about. She pitched a show called. The Mindy and something show were her best friend and when she tested for it. They told her she wasn't right for the show that she created. So later on, she creates her own show. The Mindy Project. And all the mindy project and they're like late episode. It comes out the Mendis from a town in Massachusetts. And her brother comes to visit. Her brothers played by ut k. from fucking freestyle Love Supreme And I'm like what. And she s so house small town in Massachusetts and then he says, and then they talk nothing about it. Because for her. She doesn't have the burden of representing boasting every mother fucking time. She speaks because it's not a big deal for her, but Boston is automatically stamped. On the other people on the office. When the bruins played A. The fucking Saint Louis Blues. It. Pay Pam versus Jim. I think. You know because once from Saint Louis other ones from Massachusetts not necessarily Boston I'm from Boston. and. That's the face of Boston every time. The Face in Boston is always white. I. Love Chris Evans. But the face of Boston is always white moreover. When of my favorite mobile heroes of all time? is cloak from cloak and dagger. Why because cloak I believe is introducing eighty, two eighty three. Is a Bostonian a black BOSTONIAN. However, he was created by a white person from new. York. So the story is that he was from South Boston. What black kid was living in South Boston in the fucking early eighties. Now. He was likely from the South End. Boston me that Shit, never got corrected never. Matter of fact, there was a later. Are Those the leader of? Issue written where. CLOAK HOOKUP COM Corp.. Now meaning he could, he could be a body. He wasn't a black mask of darkness, so he could come Kapoor now and he's hanging out in his neighborhood in South Boston. What a bunch of Brown people on the corner! And this on about your man things are different in the Southie now. Who the fuck calls it the Southie. Nobody. Because it was written by a motherfucker. Who doesn't live here never has. I remember the episode of the Simpsons with referring to people as a Southie. That's not a fucking thing. But again. Though black and Latino experience in Boston. Doesn't exist. When you look at any type of media that involves us. We're not there. The one show that. was dedicated to Brown. Brown experience in Boston was at needed. A Lebron James and Maverick Carter to produce and was written by a white guy or white comedian guy from Boston. And show was setting Dorchester. And it was called. Survivor's remorse got better. Every season got cancelled by stars three seasons on stars, I wish I had the entire fucking collection and I put it on a flash, and just watch it because it was that good I loved it, and it was only representation of black people from my city than I got to see that was standout. Great should've won a million awards, but guess what. These black people from Boston from Dorchester. Had to be in. Atlanta noted for that show to work. They couldn't be in Boston. They travel back and forth the Boston all the time. The anger the resistance. The quickness Black Bostonians. All their. How Black Bostonians deal with white Bostonians of different ethnic groups, all there I want to see more that shit. But after that shows three years up Bam nothing. Nothing, And also when they did A. When they finally did do A. Cloak and dagger show. They moved it to New Orleans so desi, racer, normal black BOSTONIAN mobile heroes. Anytime! We get. Any chance or any shot? For possible representation of black, Boston. Doesn't happen. City on a hill. Deceased show stars one of my favorite actors. Oldest Hodge. All Hodge plays a black dude from somewhere else who is who wants to tear down all the fucking racist machinations of Boston motherfucking? Nobody wants to do that more than a black person who are Latino. person who grew up in Boston anti lives. Why couldn't he be fucking Black Latino Bostonian in that role always someone from somewhere else. And then they always drop the fucking ball on certain things like they go to Bromley heath to white guys in an apartment with the fuck is that? What is that? There's always something fringe Roxbury to a warehouse and recipes and other white people there west Roxbury. they did a show called on. It was. It was the show. What the two white women who are who are detectives and it was who was the famous Jackson Leong Lee Thompson Young think and he had committed suicide. He was working on that show. They did a show about Cape Verdeans. I cannot remember the name of the show for life was two white women would ahead of it. They did a show on Cape Verde and. They completely fucked it up. Boston public. A show about a Boston public school never seen this many white kids in a Boston public school. That wasn't Boston Latin or Boston Academy. Those are exam. Schools Boston. Public schools don't have white kids in them. They just don't. Make up about ten percent of the population now. Okay. I could just run down a list of all. These Boston shows A Fever pitch. This guy teaches in a Boston public school like where all the Brown kids. This school doesn't exist. Anyways, what I'm saying is that the black and Latino experience in Boston is a race on what ends up. happening is the by product is that? We get shit on by our own people nationwide because they think we don't exist. And kids growing up, think we don't exist because they never see themselves represented anywhere and I had to step up and change things, and hopefully somebody picks up the fucking mantle. When does it even better than I did and hopefully we finally breakthrough. Does this shit is unacceptable. One.
