"They almost like forgot to get intimidated right. They haven't been injured yet in lost two years. Do a knee rehab so they they don't realize how truly special this opportunity and that's fun to watch. Why but that was the way we grew up. We watch tennis. Like tracy austin was like sixty place. Finals jenner capital was fourteen. Yeah we're ti she. Jennifer capriati won a tournament and they. They gave her a porsche and she wasn't loud enough to drive it right. Yeah right all right so my last question be did drive it. But she proven high. She was a then. She opened that great sandwich shop. All right so. I wanna ask you before we take a break and then do some quick kids. You know i want to ask you. Is it possible. And how do we essentially revive. American men's tennis like is that a possibility are there guys in the pipeline that we should be excited. But who who else well brad. Gilbert has been a broken record on this topic and his said until american juniors play thirty to forty percent of their competitive matches on clay. We will not create more champions in europe. You play on a slow red clay court for half the year outdoors indoors. You plan a fast. Indoor carpet have no choice but to develop a complete all around game right I came through the american junior tennis system with no thanks to the. Usda who never had any support or any money from them but played their tournaments right. It's all hardcourts man. I had a big serve. And i could run to the net and then if you hit the ball to me twice. I didn't really have any you know. I had a very low shot. Tolerance if i watch these medvedev. There was a joke of each very of point in the semi finals. They were kind of like back and four in the one. No one was really showing their cars and all of a sudden have fifty three ball. Rally ask just opened everything up and opened up the emotions that opened up the crowd and opened up. Zverev second serve was getting a little wobbly. After that. And i was just thinking i bet you in all of my life of playing tennis. I've never even. I bet you have played sets with less than fifty three shots as a junior tennis clubs cities that have courts they need to. They need more clay courts. That's my answer. But that's basically a copy dancer of brad gilbert who agree with so. Why don't they do that. they should i mean the. Usda makes roughly four hundred million dollars every us open now. This us open was weird because last year they had no fans and i'm sure they're operating under a deficit. I know australian open lost like seventeen million dollars last year. All sports is crazy. Weird this year. You know the country clubs do have clay courts. But it's a very good question. And i don't know why i got a little crappy little court down here in my neighborhood in brooklyn like it should be clay lined up every day to play on it. Let's throw in ten bucks label klay on. It just ruined your shoes a little bit..

"How all manage to get on the same podcast together. Tonight is something has rather mystified me because katherine seems to be working around the clock for two straight weeks and and it's just another wonderful shift of work. This time for amazon prime video talking about the tennyson canada matt just sort of fits in and around katherine and myself. I don't really know how he's coping. And i've i've just come to portugal for for a week so i was sitting in the lobby at the moment with some some gentle music playing in the background. Maybe only i can here. But i have deliberately certain radi unglamorous location david's in as an active sensitivity to woods by very irrational self an unreal my unreasonable rules about the sending of glamorous holiday feta's to chat of sincere mattaya. She requested one. Today you can send it privately. How did so yes. It's it's it's horribly katherine k with indoor fate as well. You can faces. I don't wanna see a pool at the beach. I wanna see the sun no problem but quarter to one in the morning little smiling with a beer in a restaurant sorted family members i can. I can handle loud. Okay all right because it moment saturday in an empty lobby with the ball behind me just for you and i'll be getting out of it hostage video. I really appreciate it david. That's what fourteen years of friendship and professional companionship. Does for you right well. Let's talk about tennis shall we. How are we both we all right. You've just done a day of canada. Catherine what's it. What's it look like from now. You're in a studio in london. But what does it look like. Witnessing these two tournaments i guess for the first time with the same rights holders because it was supposed to be last year wasn't it and it didn't happen. Yeah we'll from abroad. Cussing point of view. It's it's it still feels like a massive luxury to have the rights to both and not. She is the first time we've done. I mean will kind of jersey unique. Isn't it with the concurrent men's and women's and we've talked before i think we all just really loved that former. I really loved the two cities. The the alternating between men men's and women's each of them. I think that's brilliant. Yes just feels like a massive luxury the darting around and knowing that always be some decent much to go to. I mean. I'm sure at some point in the week that will be an inevitable downside of having to sacrifice showing one match in one gray much in favor of another but they're all available to be on the platform at least And yeah i i. I love these tournaments particularly love montreal. I've been there twice And that two years ago the last time the tournament withhold of course it was the men's event then and i love the city I love your the hospitality if that tournament. It's it's really right up. There is one of my favorites. I've got very happy. Sort of medvedev emerging memories. If if two years ago is the first time. I remember thinking ooh he could be quite interesting And yeah no. It's it's great. I have to keep stopping myself. Sort of accidentally talking about weightlifting. Because that's what that's what you've been doing. Yeah no exclusively weightlifting just out of the blue thanking thankfully for the views. I've been to montreal and toronto for the tournaments but both the atp tournaments a dance. I didn't do the the wti tournaments stink. Two thousand three was the first time for montreal and it was won by andy roddick just a couple of weeks before he went on the. Us open the double. Didn't with brad gilbert watching that david's dangle of the c. n. tower a point on the ground before that's i mean. They didn't let that happen. Which is what. I explained to my mum after up. Choice in the video of me dangling off the top of the c. n. intel. Well it's very easy to say off to the very glad i did it. I thought i was going to be a rockstar. Like gues- did this really. Gnarly thing was really gnarly. Pitcher was not cool. And actually i involuntarily began soaping away and could stopes the way around. I was with people that i didn't know that well in that i still have to see. Okay well then. I went to toronto in ten said. One time i've been and that was a tournaments. Which was won by. Andy murray and i think he might beaten down federal back to back to win. It is my recollection. Crying was the big. Four in the semis. The quite few times actually happened. I think you think they always reached the semifinals of every tournament. But that was actually quite a rare thing that they were all there and yeah. Mary came out on top kidney plumbing. That i was gonna say on the one who was there and i'm just about vaguely recall in that that might happen. That's got the actual stats. And oh and by the way there as well matto you. You're right very well thank you. Yes i just wanted to say catherine. I think you've done a fantastic job of not mixing up toronto montreal day. I feel like that is a big challenge. this week. I had a sketch pad in front of me on which i actually wrote. The broke. the words t for testosterone. Try and remember that the men were into onto the women. I just couldn't make it stick. My head was swirling with thoughts of modern pentathlon and canoe slalom. And i just couldn't. I couldn't fix it in my brain and and the era came over talk back instead. Just remember t- for testosterone and it got me through the day. Say thank you for remarking upon that what is your. What is your for him once. You got for testosterone then. The logical conclusion is m for women that works right. Let's talk about the actual tennyson showy. And there's been lots of. I think we start with them and just for start the event. Today the match i saw was dan evans. Being beaten handily by alexander public Who who looked brilliant titled many looked as though and he's still seem to be playing within himself. He is this guy we saw use stating trick shots and outrageous stuff and that was as close to percentage play full of rallies sending him to victory that i can remember but the other half of the story was that dan evans didn't didn't look anything like his normal self is about right. Yeah this offense. Quick difficult to from a bullet points of view. Because yes he did look really dialed in a never really wave it in that which. I'm not sure it's something i've ever ever properly seen. Before but equally. I i i thought dan evans to shoddy. If himself really there is no exuberance him there was no Scrappy nece and they just seemed to be no resilience there yes. He's a very stylish player. But actually what wins in much is all of those things rather than the the stylishness And and take them away in he can quite quite ordinary And so outgunned. It can look so out of his depth. I think And that that's a little bit what he looked like today. I'm quite sure he'll get it back. You know it seems you know klay cools in effect. I think he said he said kobe. And okay he's recovered from covert now but that doesn't mean it hasn't taken a lot out of his training and really disrupted his preparation for an extremely grueling portion of the season the the conditions in both toronto and montreal actually look incredibly tokyo esque. It must be just whole thinking territory for the players that are in tokyo and thought thank goodness. I've got out of that colder of fire and even in canada and it seems to be kind of identical conditions. Suffocating humidity. I i in teed j. contouring her hato remus evening officer about conditions and she said yeah. It's really sweaty retirements. When today three in montreal we saw a number of players on court getting the blood pressure checked today getting the pulse taken in the blood pressure..

"There's one thing I wanted to ask about, which is that you open with. This great story about Andre Agassi. Can you? Can you tell me a little Tell me that story because I loved it as like a way to think about this topic, And I love the opening story. Thank you for giving me the chance to tell it. It's I will say that I actually wrote the introduction to the book last, which I've learned is not that abnormal. I'm curious if you have ever done that with any of your books, either with all my books, That's all I do is. Yeah. XB attraction I find like I don't know enough until I'm done with the book to write the introduction. I'm learning it was It was a circuitous road. I had a bad introduction and then This introduction I love the introduction is my favorite part of the book. I wrote it last. It's the story of Andre Agassi and I'll say, you know personally, one of the reasons I love the introduction is also I was a serious tennis player growing up in a serious Andre Agassi fan and realizing I could open with a story that I found so exciting was just you know, it's like magic. Um, so the story that I tell at the beginning is a story that really comes from Andre Agassi's amazing autobiography Open, which I also highly recommend. I should I'm like It's probably right here, and I can hold that book up. If I have a book shelf right above me. The story is of a moment when his career really turned around, and it was in 1994. He had had a really rough period. His ranking had fallen. He was about 32nd in the world if I'm remembering correctly, as coach had just left him and this is a guy who Everybody thought was going to be the best player. He was the young phenom all the people he grew up with Pete Sampras, Uh, Jim career, Michael Chang were outperforming him and everyone had expected him to be the star because he had so much raw talent. So things were really not looking good. And he had this dinner yet it with Another player, Brad Gilbert, who had just written a best selling book called Winning Ugly and Brad Gilbert. It was really it was an interview to see if Fred kill Burt would consider coming on and becoming Agassi's coach. And the dinner started out with just a discussion. A diagnosis. Like, you know, what do you think? What do you think about Agassi's game? There was a manager there is asking these questions. And Brad Gilbert said, Look If I had the raw talent you have, I would be number one in the world and the reason that you're not winning more matches as you are. You are not being strategic. You're just going out there. You have all these weapons are such a great player. You're using a raw talent, and you're not thinking about your opponent and figuring out how to let them lose. Instead of you trying to hit winner after winner. You're not setting up the odds in your favor, And that was really the brilliance of his book that had become a bestseller, Brad Gilbert spoke winning ugly was all about Figuring out what are the ways that you can change a match in your favorites. It's a book about strategy and I can see recognized the brilliance of what he was saying He recognized himself in the description of him of the way he played, and he decided to take Gilbert on. He changed his methodology on the court completely, and he went from unseated in the U. S open that year to winning the whole tournament. Um, he rose to the number one ranked in tennis and held on to that position for about 101 weeks over the course of his career. And of course, there were ups and downs, and he had his own personal challenges, which As a separate behavior change issue, But it was this moment when he recognized you have to understand your opponent in order to succeed, and that is really at the heart of behavior. Change to it's It's a different opponent is not across the net from you. It's it's an inner opponent. But it's the same obstacle that if we just try to sort of take a our best our best swing our best shot, Whatever shiny, attractive approach we read about in in a new Book. Um, that's a single approach right? A silver bullet. It doesn't It doesn't get us where we may want to be. But if we can be strategic and figure out the opponent then we can get much further. It makes a lot of sense, and I want to talk about those those different the tools in the arsenal to use for that. So Crystal asked. Covid made many of us develop new bad habits. Where is the line between Be nice to yourself? You're just trying to survive versus getting yourself to work out more or log off work at a decent hour, etcetera, and this is a hard one, right, like like if we are going to change How do we decide what we should change? And and when? When we've changed enough, it's such a good question. And, you know, one of one research finding that comes to mind that I think is really relevant to this question is there's work showing that if we, um, try to tackle too many challenges at once, and this is by led by Stephen Spiller of U C L. A. He's so that if you make a detailed plan for a bunch of different goals It actually backfires because when you're you're taking on too many things you can't prioritize and you can't focus on the thing. That's that's number one. So I do think it is really important when thinking about change, not just to, you know. Be understanding of yourself, but actually to make sure you're not trying to do too much at once. But if there's a goal that's really important to you, that that is the thing you focus on right now, and you set the other things aside until you've got this under control. So I guess that would be my main piece of advice in this moment when we have formed lots of bad habits, and there's a lot if you want to change. You probably wouldn't be here tonight with us if you are this afternoon if you're on the West Coast if you didn't feel the need to change, But try to pick one thing, What's your Top priority. Start there. And don't beat yourself up about about fixing all the bad habits that make someone sounds. Yeah, and and we just got another question from from curry about, um The fresh start effects and so let me ask you about that because I think that there's on You know, one of the big questions I get. I'm sure you get all the time and just I think one of the things all of us wonder, Is you like New Year's resolutions to do They work right when I'm when I'm starting a new job when I'm going back into my office after I've been living out of, you know, my sweat pants for the last 18 months, like like it feels like it's this opportunity to change everything. And yet we know that we've done that so many times, and our New year's resolutions haven't stuck and so does is it Worth it, or we just condemned to be the same person that we were before the pandemic. You've actually done research on this to try and figure out so tell me like, what have you found? Well, I have bad news, and I am good to do. Okay, So the bad news is that it's absolutely true. And but you know this already that most New year's resolutions fail. And so just deciding and resolving at a fresh start moment that you're going to make change. As you said, it's not enough. Um, but but the research we've done in fresh starts has a some a lot of silver lining. So one thing is that there are fresh starts that motivate us to try again that come about even more frequently than I ever appreciated. When I first started studying this, I sort of knew we all knew about New Year's resolutions. But I worked with former doctoral student of mine henchmen Die who's also at U. C L A lots of you still a shout outs today, um, to figure out that actually, that's just one of many moments in our lives that feel like a fresh start and give us a sense of a clean slate and a new beginning and this extra motivation to change they can be as small as the start of a new week. Or more momentous, like the celebration of a birthday. Um, this moment that we're living through right now is obviously as we're getting vaccinated. We're starting to return to offices and see friends we haven't seen feels like a fresh start. They give us this sense of optimism, and that's important because it gets us started. The problem is, it doesn't do a lot more than get started. So that's that's again going back to this. Keep point of. We need more tools, and we need to know the obstacles..

"I think was a good good call him. I know you're tennis idol. Growing up was andre agassi. What was it about his game that enticed you but you know he was offering was a great mentor. Me but i i was. I was lucky. I you know. I had to the tail end of you know mcenroe and connors and i remember being at jimmy's ron ninety one at the us open. And you know. Then you have chang. Winning the slam. Eighty nine before pete and andre and then pete becomes pete and andre and everything and In jim courrier give him on and off and the guy. That's that's forgotten too quickly for what he accomplished with four slams into one rankings before the other guy I i was spoiled man. I i grew up in the biggest. The golden generation of of. Us tennis and so You know with so many distinct personalities andrei made all the unfortunate wardrobe choices. Right along with them when i was a kid and stuff You know it was. It was a it was a good time to be a kind of young young tennis. And you can always throw pete sampras in there as well i mean when i look back on a particular area air. That was the one that i look back on. There is something about that. Air helped me out a little bit. Tell me about that era. How how you would describe it. Well you know it was it was. It was different. I think it was. You know everyone was wondering how could this game possibly survive. After the personalities you know like Like a mac nerva connor and then all of a sudden influx of young talent all at the same time. You know it'd be having a having a bunch. Lebron james all at the same time kinda come in as far as marketing and You know. I think. The contract between pete and andre the way they played You know all that. All the time super aggressive. Andre pretty much only mentioned that chicken so You know in the personalities were so different clothing. They were so different. So it forces people to choose to come to the side a little but not like you dislike the other one at all but You know the best rivalries start when you have a vested interest so i feel for the game. Two thousand three was that special year for you and tell me a little bit about what came together. Why did that year all work out. Well for you. You know confidence in the weird thing you know the this summer i i kind of a role one three two four four to five tournaments including the us open You know. I think. I played just as well throughout moments in my career You know i. I i would be A little ridiculous. If i didn't know that that was probably before the best of roger came about You know we. We didn't know what kind of monster that he would become on the on the tennis court at that time You know you kinda just get on a roll. In competences is is a little bit contagious. And so that whole summer was just It was just a great run for me. I was talking to a friend of mine who worked at. Cbs was the producer for the Us in new york. And i said to him. When i say andy roddick what do you think of. He said his serve. he said. I've never seen anybody in tennis. Serve as well as he. Did you serve between one hundred and thirty one. Hundred and fifty. You held the fastest serve record of one fifty five but your second serve was even better. Tell me a little bit about how that developed. Well the the story is not not real. Romantic i was. I used to have a normal kind of traditional of service motion. Like you'd see if he turned on kind of old clips of tennis. You know arms down together. Up together. Foot comes up and the whole situation I was playing mardi fish in practice one time and we were probably fifteen or sixteen I was getting He's not my best day and he was getting the better of me. And i was pretty upset about it so i stepped up the line. Kind of this whole half motion jumped off two feet and his cabinet went in and then I didn't. I never had a serve a different way again You know so it was kind of it was kind of a fortunate situation and I think the biggest thing did you look at all the great servers throughout history. You know whether it's pete or Or boris becker evenings a bitch. I think people make a lot of their shoulders and flexibility with the shoulder and arms get talked about a lot but all those guys and myself included just had such an intense be bendon such drive with the legs and to be able to think that up with. What's going on top is a A tough thing You know i. It's just something that came a pretty natural to me. It's probably the part of my game. That i worked on the leafed. Andy helped me a little bit. You had a number of coach. Brad gilbert jimmy connors. Even your brother. John was a coach for a while. I've never quite understood in the sport of tennis. What the coach actually does. Because when you've got a highly skilled player like you were another's are they seem to know what they can do can't do what. How do they interact with the player. So i if if that's a good question You know and probably too often in tennis. The the the answer is not much but you know with me with with with brad gilbert. His specialty is. I've never seen someone breakdown matchups as as well if he does so You know we focus. Probably less on what. I was doing more on how to implement what i did. Well and and and and try to cut four sat on the other person as far as those You know he was he was a. He's still just just insanely smart You know someone. Mike connors it was. I was going through a rough moment. My career where i jumped out of the top ten for the first time in five or so years and you know it was more along the line of you know people can tell you stuff then but jimmy connors looks you in the eyes and tells you something with that stare it kinda gets inside of you so he was kind of a meeting spark You know we didn't work very long but He was what i needed at that that moment in time and Lactose layers effect. He's actually the only coach that has ever coach stuff for guys who have been in the world You know and he had this unique ability to a lot of coaches. We'll just take what they did well and what they're familiar with that they you know were know net russia. They kinda only work with guys that have much skill set. He's the best. I've ever seen looking at the game for your eyes and trying to understand what to nine. Different styles left these guys who come in. God's you stay back You know so so who. I wanted to work with I took a lot of time and really really thought about that. And you know at the end. It was like listen. Who's gonna who's gonna kick what you do and try to beat the great. You know i was in. I was in a vacuum with with with rasa and in roger and then later on novak and so it was just trying different things to try to kind of get up that hill and You know i it it. It was up sledding for me from a from a talent perspective against those guys so is just trying to turn the margins and give myself A punchers chance in about thirty seconds. Is there a particular moment in your career. That when you think back on is kind of engraved in your mind andy that you'll never ever forget how. Gosh i. e there's there's so many that that you know i almost. I don't want to name one because it would. it would be an injustice and the rest of them You know. I got to play tennis with so many great people meet so many great people. You know you don't you don't. I was a kid who was sitting at the top of the stadium in new york and all of a sudden winning the us elvin the crazy thing. Wimbledon final sunday's walked towards center court. And you know davis cup and sharing those good friends being part of the olympic team and You know there's just so many parts that i it. It's tough to even single one. Andy i really wanna thank you for your time. I was honored to billie jean. King is my broadcasting partner. When i did tennis on television and so being around people like yourself like her and others that have done so much for this sport. I really have a lot of respect for you. So thank you for joining us here on sports byline yet my pleasure. Thank you so much andy.

"Not only do you want to keep the window open right now, but you want to try to find a player that I think can extend you into the future like the Spurs did with Kawai. Would. Would you look at anything like that? We kind of you're kind of in the middle Here. Where you get a young player. You move back a little bit. Then you could draft another player. Absolutely. And John. It's you know a lot if you look in them shorts in football power baseball. A lot of deals are made, and I wouldn't say friends, but people have close relationships because you talk a lot anyway. Right? You talked about the lead. You talk about different things and sometimes go. I remember. I remember He mentioned that about that place six months ago and let me just investigate with Look, they're thinking now and we bought up John Collins. Mani had brought him up. I think we talked months ago and money bought him up. And I think the thought process there is John Collins is looking for a Max deal. Number one. Do they think he's a Max player and number two? If they pay him? Do they really skyrocket to the top four in the East? And maybe that not? They're not ready to do that yet, and that organization wants to maybe take a younger player on a rookie scale deal. And develop him. With trey up? Yes, I think all those that that's a possibility all those things they happen. Um But the great thing is the warrior stood there going if they just do nothing and pick it, too. I think they're going to get a great player. That could be sitting right away. All right. Just give me your thought on bubble basketball checks you all the time when I'm watching it, And I think you were this environment, you know? Small jam. Great sight lines. No one screaming. I mean, Brad Gilbert's gotta be checking your crazy. It's like playing tennis was yelling, Hatcher. Playing golf and I was watching the Clippers just go off last night. They scored 1 54. Molly shot 63% from the floor and 63 on the three ball, and I'm thinking it is just is just a great environment conducive. Too often. It's a basketball in high level shot making. What? What are you observing overall from the NBA's bubble basketball? Well from day one. I was totally impressed. First and foremost on more conditional, the players came back and, you know we had that lock out and a lot of some players came back. I shouldn't have times have changed, but without access to the facility. I thought they didn't incredible job coming back in shape. Ready to play. Those first eight games. I thought, you know, even you know, there's a few teams I really, really struggled, but it was a good tune up for these playoff phonies playoff game. So some somewhat of a training camp. And now the level of play is really picked up. The shotmaking been incredible, but we've seen that. Um, but you know what you said, claiming a small gym. I think it helps not only the shooting, but like you take a series like Denver and Utah. They were down 31. They won last night. I would not be surprised if they win that series. Because they're not going to Utah. You know they can win one more game and then it's you know, that's that's that's where I think the bubble missing the fans of missing traveling and going on the road. That could really hurt Utah because I think them is just a better team. They just haven't they struggle for two games. Look most players, you know, when you train in the summer, that's where you're at. So my best games were ever being in the opinion polls. Hal Holmes was out of it. Just never seen it used to go up there. The Barry Boys, Rod Higgins and 10 and mentioned we would be up there in that song and just playing all day long. So that's what you used to now. As you move on your career her pull pull George last night that he's had a hard time getting going. That's that's gonna be. There's an adjustment there mentally, but I've been impressed physically how they came back, ready to play. You know, there's so many great story. They've come come out of the bubble.

She's the real deal. She's absolutely the real deal. Brad gilbert called her to win this tournament before it started of course <hes> so people are tuning in but the kid i'll tell you what if she can if she can eat up what she did yesterday from the fans and even from the commentators which of course she wouldn't know at the time but but afterwards words if i'm probably if i did what she did. I'm going to watch the match you know. I'm going to watch the match sometime when i'm on the plane on the way home or something and she would beat disheartened by the announcers who were certainly pro american. I get i get that even even gord wilson right. We'll say your sense of and of course am. I am right. You'll hear me go bananas but but it was a it was beyond distraction man how they never gave her many kudos that kept talking about this kid that she came roaring back in the second set because she got trounced in the first set townsend lost six one and <hes> she won the second set six four but the way they were talking. Was you know this was andress. Guys no shot now that the kid won the second set well. She got drilled. She got drilled in the final set. She lost six to you sure wouldn't know that talking to the announcers to the point where i thought it was a little much yeah. I mean it comes down to. I think there's certainly a a a a no matter what sport you're talking about. You're going to have play by play guys who are going to be at least subconsciously thinking about their audience right and their audience is one hundred percent cheering for taylor townsend because she's an american and exciting player to she she earlier in the tournament beat. Simona halep was the number four seed. So it was an exciting player there was there was hope for the great american hope and the not talking to canadians canadians don't do anything for their bottom line but they still should be a little more objective than they we're in that match and i almost steve would like to see a color guys when they do sports more of a homer side. I almost went because i think it would be a lot more natural if they did you know everyone needs to get bob called shit right because he loved the leafs but but he loved the leafs you know he grew up with the leafs. The guys humid you know like a lot of those guys my my parents age my dad's age might might i mean my dad would be well into his eighties eighties now but but he was grew up with the lisi grew up in toronto <hes> you know i like the leafs growing up so expect the you know. The homers are going to be homers. You know well <hes>. I just know like bob cole than his act because it was a national broadcast so what so what you know like i said the the guys humid. You know he's not going to have this. <hes> listen steve the only way guys get into being a play by play guy the only way they get into doing it and become good at it or become. A color guy is because they were rabid fan of a hockey team. I guarantee you again t it's the only way a kid comes out of college or goes into college saying you know i'm gonna go to l. Gakuen or whatever and do the broadcast because i wanna be a play by play guy it's because they had a you know a massive allegiance to a hockey team somewhere you know so anyway i get it but it was over the top man..

"And and have really is one of the great night's that you could ever want. Dave. I seen your bio asked you. This says you were born in Youngstown, Ohio, how long how long have you lived there? Yeah. I was born I was actually born and raised there. And and guys back when I would actually being looked at the country be drafted into baseball in my junior year at Youngstown state Eddy DeBartolo actually invited me to his office. And he said, look, I know he's looking pretty good for you. And if he ended up getting drafted just know that I'm here to help you in any way. I can never forget that that that is who he is. And that's how he's known in our community. And you know, it was just a wonderful gesture on his part. And I was so grateful for that. Because I had no clue what I'd do if I acted. So, unfortunately, we went into division playoffs that year like your wife you and the opening day pitcher against right in and we got defeated twenty six to one. So. Borcelino scouts up that perform it wasn't until after the next year that ended up being drafted by the pirates in the twenty first found, but my never forget that moment of for about fifteen minutes with Eddie on his office that was very special that is actually quite amazing. And by the way, don't mind retelling that story next Thursday, you good with it. So I had it wrong. Gesture by the pirates. Yes. And it was drafted by Pittsburgh in the twenty first round. Yeah. And then what was the trade from San Diego or San Diego? It was nineteen eighty one. I was treated over to the San Diego Padres and was sent off to AA baseball after I've been in AA baseball for two years. So I was a little discouraged. But it was with the Padres that year that I had a great manager. And then in the name of any want to pitch for the Orioles. And he actually taught me the art of pitching. And that you're I was fifteen and five and flicked at the minor league pitcher of the year for the Padres. And and then the next year got to the big leagues with them. Yeah. Makes me laugh. I mean, you guys you played baseball at a high level. You're a college baseball player you'd been drafted. And yet, you even say, you didn't learn to pitch until you were you know, in your twenties. It's kinda crazy all these kids out there who are playing travel ball or showcase tournament. They think they know. Right. But. Yeah. There's an ocean of knowledge that that's a waiting, right? Oh my gosh. It was I was I was still wearing ton. Right. Everything happened. Subsequent retirement. Ever learn enough. And and I'm so grateful for someone like Eddie what along with many others Clinton, including the home, baby. Norm, Sherry that that had such an incredible role in my life learning to be a pitcher. And you know, today, it's all about velocity. So you know, these kids aren't learning, and they may be being taught or told to get spots to change speeds keep it off balance but to do that in the strike zone. And that was one of the things that anyone top me to do is just live in the strike zone. Dave and don't be afraid to get ahead of hitters, and and, you know, keep it simple. I was taught get guys out in four pitches or less. So I mean, I don't want to make this into a like, a, you know, the get off my lawn segment where you and I complain about how things are different and better when we were younger, but Dave, isn't it true? Like, you know, this lack of complete games in this whole third time through the lineup stuff. I mean, I know they can show you reams of data. But I also watched you pit that's the thing. Guard two of the nineteen eighty-seven unsee. What we saw Dave. Well, you know, I I'm with you guys. I don't like it. It's it's really discouraging to sit and watch a game. And all of a sudden the kids looking into dugout after the fifth during the fifth and saying I'm done, you know, when I learned that when you got the ball you wanted as starter on the first pitch and you wanted to throw the last pitch of the game. And that was the bottom line. And and so in yet, I also understand the game is changing whether you like it or not the game is changing and doing things differently today. I just gotta happen to believe that old school is the way to go. And and I will live and die there regardless of what the game does. And I'll still continue to enjoy it though because I love baseball. And I really don't care what they do. I just wanna watch it and CR giants win. Dave. I can't wait to talk with you next Thursday. It's going to be such a special night, and hopefully everybody can come on in join us bay Schaaf dot org. That's B A S H O F bay area. Sports elephant bay shop dot org. You can.

He decided to post an Instagram and he actually photo shopped his name and number onto a forty Niner jersey of a player, a player is being hugged by Jerry Rice. So it's other words, he took a picture with Jerry Rice is hugging a player, and he was able to artfully Photoshop his name and number. So it says Brown eighty four it's in the home read. Yeah. And I mean, he obviously had higher. I mean is he's not this skilled at Photoshop is this came out yesterday. I don't think that he Photoshop the photo. I saw this on our somebody sent this to us on the text line actually yesterday was it yesterday. Date dated as today. Well, he may have tweeted it out today. He tweeted it. But I don't think according to okay. Yeah. According to this. I'm reading here. It says he posted it this morning. He so he re tweeted it just like Todd Gurley re tweeted the photo of himself trading jerseys with the the heat got francesa with with the referee last week. I don't think he made this Photoshop and he tweeted out himself. Right. So it's no news. When when some just some Jubran does it it's news when Antonio Brown. Does it right? Because now he's just now he's just like that was just being either blatant or he just wants to troll and mess with everybody or whatever. But he wrote his caption was when the goat embrace you when the goat embrace you. So again, we'll see what happens. The Steelers are gonna play hardball, obviously hardball, obviously, he and the Rooney's sort of softened their stance a little bit on this whole deal. But the meantime, there you go guys what does the Antonio Brown rot? He wants your attention and affection. Is there an over under on that list about how many games the Niners win next year? There's not. But there is the guy who is in charge of the Antonio Brown decision is is sound of we have John Lynch who makes that call John Lynch or cows Shanahan. I wonder so there you go.

You just started your fiftieth year. I'm like, wow. It's too. She just turned ninety nine. So she's begun her one hundred years ago. Yeah. All right. John Lynch, he went on our friend, Ian Rapoport day podcast. We asked for them. Talk to Murphy, Malcolm, I'm busy with and they're talking senior born again, by the way, that wide receiver deebo Samuel was doing his thing. Again, he was doing his thing. And John Lynch is saying, yeah, listen, nobody wants to be down there because it means you had a bad season. But they are getting a good look at some players. I don't like how we arrived at the opportunity because it means that you didn't want enough football games, and that kind of work from the bottom up, but it is an opportunity, and it's a great opportunity. And so I was just walking through the hall there last night. And somebody said, hey, this is like cheating. You get the answers to the test. You you get all this extra time, our coaches get to put in a limited version and a scaled down version of our scheme. So you get to put these guys in whatever situations you want. And I think that extra time is invaluable typically teams that that leave the senior bowl end up drafting and probably just as importantly, not drafting people because of the time they spent with them. So it it's a it's a really nice opportunity for our personnel and coaching staff. Yes. John Lynch being very gentlemanly about factor. They they went forward twelve. All right. Well, how'd you doing and jerick McKinnon? Here's a little Jimmy's doing great. You know, he's back at Santa Clara at our facility and just really vigorously attacking his rehab. There's nothing nice about an ACL rehab one thing they'll put an positive spin on it. And this is not positive for us. But jerick McKinnon did it six weeks before him. And so are starting running back in our starting quarterback. The good thing is they have a buddy to kind of go through this rehab together. And Jimmy is vigorously trying to catch jet who's trying to separate from Jimmy. And so there's competition going on as well. And I think they'll both those guys will tell you that's really helped them somebody to go through it with it's fun. Now, we're starting to see them taking the next stages of of the rehab. He's doing really well. And we're looking forward to having him of this off season and back and healthy on our team here in John Lynch talk about a couple of forty Niners with knee injuries somewhere Trent Balki smiling. Trent bulky love the guy with the knee injury. He did he did anybody. I'm concerned as to how Jimmy G will be coming down. Demarcus. We were so worried about DeMarcus cousins is achilles. So far looks pretty good. You damn right. That's a great call. So far so good the most minutes he's played so today when he four. Yeah. More ACL's a big deal. Carson Wentz to Shawn Watson bigger deal. Actually, you really think about Seattle I should say. And then finally here's Lynch on Garoppolo could be back in the in the spring and summer at the what they call the Garoppolo off season activity, Syria. We're hopeful he's going to get to take part in in in our OTA's. And you know, that's the plan. And he hasn't had any setbacks. So he's doing really well. I'm really proud of him to you know, Kyle. We we all got together and said this can't be a wasted year in terms from the neck up in terms of talking. I mean that was one of the hard things Jimmy needs to play hasn't played a ton of games. But how can you try to recreate that how can you try to grow from the neck up in in your football, acumen, his ability and experience in this system, and Kyle I don't know where he found the time, but he found it, and I think made a real effective use of that throughout the season as well. So there you go John Lynch checking in and again, there's there slobbering over deebo Samuel wide receiver from South Carolina and Montana. Has sweat Montanez Montas girl, I'm gonna make you sweat from circuit. Nice. All right. Jason Kidd is part of the berries sports hall of fame class. It's going in with Tara VanDerveer, Dave driven kina Turner. And Brad Gilbert, and we got we got the Basketball Hall of Famer and Saint Joe's because I never got your answer. 'cause they didn't ask you. How'd you feel about Saint Joe's Alameda as Moreau Catholic it? Well, ask them how they felt about when they were defending their NCIS title to the the lowly Moreau Catholic Mariners and lost in the first round of the plan. That would have been two thousand five were you part of that. No. I was not. Okay. All right. Go to this Jason Kidd's. Sorry. Thoughts on the NBA and bears. Sports fame on caviar six eighty the.

It was when the giants were going through another one of their long long downturns of just tap out. After tap out scratching out one run and losing three to one right on a cold oracle night. And if you remember a cold or shabby? The guy is a chubby junk baller who had two major league wins in his first name was a last name Williams Anderson or something like that or Anderson Valero or something like that you remember guy from the Braves any just slammed the freaking door on the giants.
