Patrick show on fox sports radio hour on this friday. Dan in the danettes. Dan patrick show spend some time first hour talking about tom. Brady apparently playing the entire season on a knee that needed surgery. A fully torn mc l. Having had a fully torn fail you can play on it. You could walk on it. I played basketball on it now. It doesn't mean that it's torn from the bone. It's just it's it's a full tear and it won't heal on its own. A partially torn can heal on its own fully torn from what i'm told that cannot but having done pretty much. The checklist of i had the microfracture surgery at acl damage mc l. cartilage damage and eventually had a replacement knee. So kind of an expert on all of this and then. I wondered raise pretty private about all of this stuff. Why is it coming out now. Five months after the super bowl. Isn't this the kind of thing if you wanted to get out. If you're brady's cam it gets out right after the super bowl. But maybe rick stroud of the tampa times did a great job investigative reporting here and somebody leak this information to him and We find out that. Tom brady had played the entire season on a Torn mc l. Yes eating. Is this the kind of thing though that. If you're tom brady and his camp you want to get out yes. I don't think you do because there are people now who were like tom brady cheating again another cheating scandal playing fast and loose with the rules. Typical brady i think it benefits brady. i think. Look you're seeing the tweets. I'm not maybe you know. People are like oh information there which is true but maybe learned this in new england where. I don't have to tell anybody nothing to see here. It's not like you go man. Tom's really slowed down there. There was another where you go man. What's wrong with him. What happened to the explicitness in new england because when when we saw drew brees is arm. I said he's got damage in his shoulder and that was a couple of years ago. We find out yes. He did have damage in his shoulder. Peyton manning. we knew that he didn't have a strong arm when he went to denver. He had damaging then shoulder cam newton when he was throwing in the way he was throwing us said. He's not back from and having had a surgically repaired shoulder. I know what that feeling is like just to throw a football in the backyard. He's trying to throw it in an nfl game. I'm a game of operation. I think if fritzy and i combined all of our surgeries it's cover a pretty much pretty much. I was running down all of my surgeries. And then paulie goes. Yeah but you also had that surgery on your hand. I go right i did. I had surgery and just that. I'm done no more surgeries here. We're just carving up. The sports world is what we do. I don't remember. This was a bad injury. But i remember we were in the old studio. Your goof around the basketball and you went to get a loose ball and your knee went into the corner of the wall. That juts out and you turn around and your face went white and hit right on your kneecap. Yup it's done. That needs done that. He's done because i don't. I don't know if you remember this day but you looked at me like i helped. You need help you kind of it under your breath and then you went and sat down and you were seeing stars. Yes i was not. I wasn't looking at danettes. i was into thank you. i yeah. I was in trouble. But if you've had these surgeries than you know when something's wrong and something different to find out that it wasn't actually a patella teheran. You didn't need surgery. Yeah yeah like. It was just a ban that really hurts and i thought i can add to my resume here. How many other radio hosts are coming in after. They've had shoulder surgery. Now that's kind of a forgotten category. We should have an injury report list that we put out so if romi wants to do it in collin some other doug godly. I think just tours. Acl i gotta give him. Credit is still doty show their rich eisen rich eisen is in cova protocol. He really yes. Yeah this is kind of under covered story here. Should stay that way to a playoff series are all momentum and you have gained five sons in bucks at saturday night. Can you go back mclovin and find down our have. We had traditionally had an nba finals games on a saturday night because it always felt like there was a sunday game for some reason when i was covering the nba finals. Doesn't sunday seen like. And i guess this has been planned by the nba of this is when they're going to have the dates. But i just don't remember a saturday night. Nfl nba game in the finals. It always felt like it was a sunday night game. Maybe something's changed here but do you have any information looking for now. I'm going to look up games. Like to brian. Russell push those feel like they were all on sundays. I'm sure they work. I'm sure they with the military played on saturday. I just don't look into it right now because that's usually where if you want to throw a game in a in a time slot where nobody is going to really see it. Doesn't it seem like it's friday or saturday. yes ton. is it possible that they don't want to have more than three days off between games. I don't know how that affects ratings one way or another but i'm wondering if there's anything about they that'd be four days between games just to make sure it's on a sunday. Yeah but i don't know if that really matters if you're really looking forward to a game then you're gonna go okay. They're they're playing and there have been times when it covered the nba finals. Where i go man. Why do we have to travel to this place. And we have three days off before they're going to be able to play a game but that blocked my honest game four. Is that something that carries over when they get to phoenix. Phoenix says the home court advantage. Now and you start to think about this one week from today we're either going to be celebrating the greatness of janas and a two time. Mvp who has an nba championship at the age of twenty six. That doesn't happen very often two time. Mvp and you've wanted an nba championship at age. Twenty six and you've overcome an injury that we had former players who thought he would be done for the playoffs or it could be chris paul now this could be. Hey chris. paul moves into a different category with an nba championship. Or chris. paul once again. Can't win the big one. I don't think will penalize. Janas i think will penalize chris paul because he honest played great but chris. Paul has home court advantage and he had a subpar game for you know the it felt like he started out so great and now like diminishing returns here but this is really about chris. Paul i think the rest of this series. If honest wins that puts him in a really elite company. Could you find out from from the guys who give us stats. They're mclovin how many times we've had a player have to mvp's and win an nba championship at age. Twenty six now. Because i don't know how many you're gonna find are there are there any. I don't know. I truly don't know because bird was older when he had. Mvp's won a championship. Yeah paulie i was thinking lebron when he got to miami i think he arrived there at twenty six and he did not win it in his first year he wanted in a second and third. He was twenty seven when he got his first title miami. I'm going to see him. Mvp z. had you'd think he'd have to at that point. And i don't know if kareem had to mvp's before because he won a championship early in his career in milwaukee it only been there a couple years. But the i'm just curious of a saturday night game in the nba finals in a player. Who has to. Mvp's anna title by the age of twenty six siesta for paul fair or not if he has off shooting night and or has the turnover. Deal over these next couple of games. That choke title could be hung around his neck. Whether you think that's fair or not. I think these next couple games are going to be very telling well. Richard jefferson mentioned this yesterday. Where he said you know you're gonna start hearing that is chris. Paul choking you know this is going to be really fun really interesting but this is to me on chris. Paul win or lose. It's on chris paul. he's gonna get lauded. He's going to get the applause. He's going to get put into a different category if he wins the championship. The apple lebron got an mvp and cleland at twenty-five another mvp league mvp in two thousand six at age. Twenty six miami. But then he got his title at twenty seven so he had to mvp's league mvp's and his first title at twenty seven years old but we don't have anybody who's one to mvp check. I got bill. Russell is right between twenty six and twenty seven second. Mvp and i'm assuming it had gotten to tiles but they're sports writers into now the russell which accused right at that cusp. Well which makes sense rush definitely won championships. Yeah but he. I think he was. He was like twenty six twenty seven when he won his second. Mvp one five mvp's in total man. Whatever i hear wreck wilt but will only won two titles his whole career right. Yeah yeah and he won those later in his career. Well that's pretty select company but but a week from today. It's either chris. paul. Enjoy the celebration or chris. Paul can't get it done and it's not fair to him but but this is. This is what comes with that. Hey he's one of the great point guards of all time but it might not be. And it's not all on chris paul but i think like devon booker. This is coming out party for him. Coming off forty. Two points on that cusp as well. You know he's not an mvp candidate it as far as regular season but no janas. I think we'll be applauded. And unless he somehow goes you know over ten from the line and the as a sub par performance scoring altogether. Then maybe but it feels like janas has become almost untouchable in this in this series. Because of what he's done so still got three games early. The potential for three more games. You're talking about saturday. nba finals. You're right it just started about five years ago. with cavs warriors. They stretch out the files to give a little more rest to players but historically finals games have been on tuesdays thursdays sundays. Yeah that's what of about two thousand sixteen or keeping an eye on the open championship and of course interesting comments by bryce into shambo yesterday. And he had this to say about his driver. If i ended up down the middle of the fairway that's great but again with the driver right now. The drivers sucks. It's not a good face. I mean we still trying to figure out how to make it. Good on the misfits and i'm living on the razor's edge. I've told people for a long time and it's quite finicky for me because it's a golf course. That's pretty short. And so when i hit drive up there and it doesn't assume the fairway throwing the first cut or whatever or hey it's tough for me to get it out onto the green and control that But what is in the middle fairway. Like i had it on eighteen. I was able to a nice shot in there to eleven feet and almost made birdie. Okay a good craftsman never blames his tool now. He had a tough round. Any should say look. It's on me not to drive her well as you might expect The folks had cobra. They make that driver. They weren't pleased with rice into shambo. Ben schoeman is the guy who is designed bryson to shampoos driver and he said that everybody is bending over backwards. We got multiple guys in research and development who are trying to get this. And get it into the pipeline. Faster bryson knows that. It's just really really painful. When he says something stupid then he goes on to say now. This is the guy who works for. The company makes the driver for bryson. He has never really been happy ever like. It's very rare when he's happy. I'll show him and said now he's in a place where he's swinging a five degree driver with two hundred miles per hour ball speed. Everybody's looking for a magic bullet well. The magic bullet becomes harder and harder to find the faster. You swing and the lower. Your loft guests. That didn't go. well now. This shambo has since backtracked walked back. Because you know somebody probably that your sponsor there okay does shambo being petty. That doesn't surprise me. I think the comments from the person from cobra like that's where cobra has to say. You know what we we make a great driver. And i know that t he he'll have other comments to say. I think he's just frustrate the fact that you're gonna go scorched earth on rice into shambo i. I wouldn't do that. I would just say you know what we're gonna talk to bryson. You know we'll figure this out but he didn't have any problem with this same driver first of all. You shouldn't be using a damn driver on that golf course to begin with if you hit it so damn far. You can't put it in the fairway of course management there. You have it. Dan when you're living on the razors in jesse's told us many tokyo four. You know. i got a suggestion for how. 'bout you switch to an epic driver. Calloway come on phone too soon. Too soon calloway. The epoch drivers the epoca max l. s. pros their explore epic drivers had callaway golf dot com slash epic dj in nebraska. Then we'll take a break. We're gonna talk to a brand shambley of the golf channel. See what he makes this Yes dj what's on your mind very bp love. Show thanks her. Hey i think it's time to just sit down and make him watch a bunch of tiger woods interviews because you know something like that tiger would never no matter how bad he played bass just sponsors. He just way too smart for that. Oh i don't know. I don't want him to be like tiger when it comes to interviews. There's there's too many guys who are boring. I love this. Are you kidding me. Dj if he didn't say anything yesterday i'd have to fill this time with something else but thank you for the phone. No one bryson to be angry here. I wanna cobra to come back and be angry at bryson shambo. Absolutely all right. We'll come back. We'll spend a little time with brando. Shambley the golf channel would see. Make this with bryson. do shambo have to understand you. I'm this it's five degree loft now normal driver might be nine or ten. You know a lot of forgiveness there. There's no wiggle room with him. Swinging this fast. They built what he wanted. He's the one that is the problem. Not the club. It's the guy who just fired his caddy a couple of weeks ago. There's bigger issues here. Called the pressure of being great every single time. You're supposed to be great. That's the difference. Yes polling driver. Not working bryce in med. We'll take a break seventeen after the hour.

They have live coverage of the open championship. At royal st george's golf club and that will continue across all the nbc platforms. Golf channel. peacock live coverage second round. Currently airing on golf channel by the way brandel chamblee. I believe picked colin more cala to win the open championship. Let me start there. Was that your pick. Because that's a good pick right now. Well appreciate that. i think i'm like two for one. Hundred ninety. seven. Fifteen on wednesday nights started picking players but the appreciate that all arrive this way but this is a guy who's making his debut in an open championship and i know he played in the scottish open. I just don't know how much prep time you need. When you play courses like this brandel i mean. That's pretty quick turnaround to all of a sudden. Be playing well on a golf course like this used to be that you needed a lot of prep time but not anymore i mean they have things called google earth than they can sort of plot out there Their mrs left and riot around a golf course. He doesn't ask. Mrs really big mrs ads ashore. And then you add to the fact that The golf courses a little softer normally blades. So i think that mitigates some of the experience you might need to have around there. What is it like though that the shots you have to you have to have imagination. I would think but yeah right. It will typically an open. the courts goes out and back. So you'll you'll have a left right going out say and then a right to left come back in so you'll need to hold the ball into a left a right win and then work with the right. The left win so you'll have to be able to work the ball both directions. This golf course just goes around in circles out like all the other seemed like a rotation courses british if mostly you have to play shots. That are through different windows. You know you gotta in workout with talk about that. So unlike most courses most weeks on a pga tour in the united states. You gotta work the ball up and down left to right right to left so and you have the best ball strike on world right now leading near bet. What happened to phil mickelson. I you know. i think that's more apropos. To say about the pga chair chip easily had easily. Had one of it all year law where he was better than i think twenty i. It hasn't had a top twenty all year long except for one week where he just woke up and play like though mickelson when he was twenty five years old. We shot an eighty the first day. Well the worst part about this of courses at the rough is really really thick and even bryce into shambo earlier in the week was talking about the need to find fairways your breasts and hasn't talked about the need to find fairways since he's been on tour but he said so this way phil as we know typically drives it all over the lot you get in this rough you cannot recover well and that brings us to bryce into shambo and he was critical of the The driver not not the person who is the driver of the driver. But how surprised were you. That shambo through cobra under the bus. Never seen anything like ever. I mean maybe there's been a time or two. Were players had problems with equipment. But you know that those things happened behind closed doors. They go sort them out but you know he switched drivers. This is not the driver that he won the us open but switched drivers or when he won the us open and this is just really poor planning on his part he should have gone to the event with seven or eight different heads where he could have switched out if he was having problems. With this with this new driver and because of coed restrictions his whole equipment team couldn't be there so this is this'll be like you haven't an offshore blaming it on the dan ads or your producers or something It was bizarre. I never heard anything like that. If i if i own that equipment company you wouldn't be playing next week. I don't think wait you're saying not to blame my guys when we have a bad show. Okay kind of where. Where were you a decade ago. I in the one thing that i thought of with shambo was. Why are you hitting a driver on this course to begin with it's not a long. It's not a long course and it's about accuracy. I you know. Sometimes you have you bought into the show that you've created or that people want to see if he goes up there with a three iron in the is going to be gone doesn't have the driving like is he bought into a. You came to see me. Swing a two hundred miles. An hour in my arms may fall off yet. Listen this great boy you know. If he hits iron down there he can hit his three iron almost three hundred yards so if he is iron down there and he's in the same place as everybody else he's still going to have to clubs less than everybody else into the green. Have the trajectory and spin rate so in a lot of aspects from a strategy standpoint and from just an equipment structure standpoint. This is all on him as roma's equipment company under the bus. Which by the way. I made some calls yesterday to equipment. Companies talked to various engineers. The engineer at cobra who designs equipment spell. The name of tom lofty east. Sorta renowned is one of the smartest if not the smartest engineer engulf all a golf so completely threw his equipment company in the engineers under the bus. All that being said this shambhu great for the sport he does give you a tune in factor as much as i love. Jordan's speeds eight now. The tune-in factor that bryce into shambo does fill has tune in. How many guys would you say true. Tune-in factor that maybe somebody. On the periphery of being a golf fan. How many how many golfers look moved the needle obviously tiger in unprecedented away But speak definitely moves. The needle eat eat absolutely in this country. Moves the nita. Roy moves the needle but bryson is compelling a lot of different aspects. Not only has he done something. Nobody's done incorporate. Long distance moves. And who's golf's wigan and approve is driving in a crazy way. He he's messy. He makes mistakes. He yells reporters and cameramen for not protecting he He's he's socially awkward in the media center. He wants to tell you how much he knows. Kinda like phil. But phil doesn't funny way. Embrace it does it in. I don't even know. I don't know how you describe it smug ridiculous. He makes mistakes all the time off the colossal mistake. They're they're clumsy state as entertaining as help. Are you team. Kepco or team to shambo. Let's see what i thought. Kept calling him out on social media asking people around the league. i thought kept across ally. I liked kept it. I really enjoy listening to most of the time. A loves golf game. He's james dean bryson's any hassle Bryson is reva me. it's tough to. It's tough to pool for bryson. When he's acting like this it really is by the way speak was my pick. So yeah of all people on leaderboard. Everybody's got some weakness. Almost almost everybody is dealing with some He's the one right now. That doesn't really have a week. Sees driving better than he has a unbelievable iron player and unlike more cowan loot like more. Great putter louis. Stays is not a great ball. Striker is great at everything i saw. We're daryl hatton broke is Iron on eighteen if it was a wedge or whatever it was but he but he he stepped on it a couple times and then snapped it. What's the worst meltdown you ever saw on a golf course. I was playing with a guy wants to we. Were right a car. So it had to take a handful of book clubs over to speak sickness tour player And hit a poor chip and then he took his wedge in decapitated all the irons at his feet. The robot five or six clayton. They're all pop it in the air like we started like seven or eight holes of play. You know he literally had no arts after gun. Larry a gosh. I saw a guy one of my buddies deadly hard. He back when they used to measure how far you hit it off the tee with the lines and not meters right so there was always somebody in the fairway who would walk off your drive in the yard and started to fifty whatever and deadly Had one of the worst tempers ever onto and so he hits this drive on driving. Hold it hits a tea or hits a tree right off the tee and it comes back twenty yards in front of us and i wish i could stand up and give you this but out. Two hundred fifty yards away as a volunteer with clipboard. And he's meant to walk this off so now he starts taking these exaggerated big steps from two fifty as if he's going to walk two hundred thirty yards right and so he's giving it this you know with the clipboard. And dudley hart season commented. Deadliest dislike volcano ready to explode and he just started screaming at the top of his lungs. Just give me ethnic fifty yards yards in this one of the damn funniest things i've ever seen. Didn't rory throw a driver into the pond. One time yeah bay hill one year. He threw a three iron on right out in the middle of great. Throw the great throw and it was on donald trump's golf course donald had fished out. He came up on our set next day and gave it to us any updates on tiger woods. Now i've heard nothing absolutely not. I look i'm like you. I mean you call doctors you ask you know what what probability is coming back and all of them say the same thing that it just depends on this one particular bone in his foot if shattered it is probably done. If if it was claim break probably come back. That's all i've heard and that's just from doctors from tigers. Camp obviously always great to talk to you. Give my best to justin richler. Thank you always nice talking to you. Dan brand new shambley. The lead golf channel analyst did not afraid always got strong opinions coverage of the open championship all weekend. Long got nbc. Golf channel peacock live coverage of the second round currently going on on golf channel and the weekend coverage begins at seven am eastern on nbc. Peacock premium also stream all coverage. This is a sound like a dumb question. But i'm not high golfer. Why do you think office. Such a Temper tantrum filled sport. It seems like golfers do this. A lot is at the silence that the mind games. Well it's just you and blame a teammate. No well sometimes you blame your caddy or in this case you blame your but i just think it's the hardest sport to be perfect in. You can go ten for ten from the floor and ten for ten from the line. You can't do any better than that didn't mean yet. Had a perfect game but as a golfer you think that you should every shot should be a great shot like why. Why didn't that go in. And i'll how did i miss the fairway. They're like all of these things and the ball doesn't move just right there and just you and i think that whole mentality of why. Why didn't do what i thought it was going to do. Or oh my gosh. You know it didn't go in like they. It just feels like and you're out there by yourself the cameras on you you can hide when you hit a bad shot. You can't hide. There's a lot of people watch it and then you're going. Oh my god. Did you justin. Thomas in the scottish open almost missed the ball on the fairway almost missed it and i watched and i went. That look like almost missed it. And then they. They showed it and they go. He almost missed that. I go justin. Thomas won the top ten players in the world. I went wow okay. I don't feel so bad about where play. Oh have you ever had like a beer to and played better. 'cause you're relaxed. No i mean they call it a swing lube where. You'll have a beer but i don't. I don't like the feeling. I'm not a day drinker. Cavuto beer out there even a cigar. I don't i don't like it it just just after a while. You're like yes mclovin on that topic. I heard this incredible podcast. About how have you ever heard the theory that a low level of alcohol relaxes you and helps you be creative athletic. So i guess steve bomber invent something called the bomber peak where he had an iv of alcohol when he was coating going into his arms. So this is the clippers owner. Yes so he's like a like a one beer level for a sustained period of time to perform. Do you know how you're good at pool with one beer. But you're so this called. The bowling is the other one. Yeah it's called the bomber peak where you are relaxed at a certain level which kind of makes sense you know the way we acted on sportscenter people assume that maybe we had something to drink which i never did. Even if i was doing sunday night. Sports center. And i had to go to a picnic during the day. Never have anything to drink. But i can understand where and golfers will drink. Professional golfers will drink. There've been golfers. I know to golfers that. I know that had something in their bag. And you would disguise it but they would have something to calm them. Down steve bomber having an alcohol. Iv answers so many questions for me now. Now at all makes perfect sense. Yeah satan of course does is steve balmer impersonation. Just the oddest dance move. Who wouldn't move like that. They were getting alcohol fed intravenously. Yeah gotta drip yep polling. I went snowboarding. Umbro's and i'm not that good of a snowboarder when i'm sober. And there's like one of those mid mountain little bars go. I'll have one. And then one turned into four. And then i had to i snowboard back on and get down this mountain and i'm trying to be the cool guy but my friends are really good at skiing and snowboarding. And i'm i'm like a c. Minus on a good day. And i'm like. I don't i don't think i wanna make it and i'm going down and things are falling out and things are going backwards. I'm falling and there's like little kids. Go and mr you okay some little mr. You okay okay. Via bomber peak according to urban dictionary is the theory that computer programmers obtain quasi magical superhuman coating ability when they have a blood alcohol concentration percentage between point one two nine and point one three eight. You will have five hours to find the elusive balmer. Peak and build the best worst business possible yarmuk level. that's above the dry level. I believe but You know. I wonder though. Remember tom brady took a nap. Before its first you will win like some guys can relax in the big moments. I was not like that like a lot of guys. get nervous. wind take a tranquilizer. Forget alcohol take something to help you in the big game. I knew the basketball player. The big name basketball player he throat before every every Big every playoff game throughout this almost the nerves. Get to that point and you'll see guys in the locker room prior to a super bowl and like they. They have to wait so long to get out there and then they get out there like brady famously. Would come out and he would run right through the end to the other end of the field it was it was a madman and then you would see him later. He'd be calm as can be. But that i gotta get out there. Yes but yeah wayne. Gretzky talks about how like heading into stanley cup. Finals are huge matches even throughout his whole life for some reason. All of the attention pressure in those moments calmed him down where he was just like. Okay good now. This is where. I'm supposed to be well some love it. Some can't wait for this. A wilson he's talked about that. Too and montana was like that joe joe just like he couldn't wait to get in the zone is what they call you. Get in that moment and then you just you soak it up. You absorb it. Dennis eckersley talked about it. One time with me that he he knew this is what i do so well couldn't wait for the moment that there's something about all of the hard work that you put in too and the preparation it's to find that exact moment and so when you finally get there it's like all of my work has paid off. I'm in this moment. this where all of this pressure. This is what i've been working towards. And i finally got their you know pull. I think you asked montana wants about. Would you rather have the lead or be behind with the ball. he goes. oh i'd rather have the ball. then i control it. He goes standing on the sidelines. Relying on others. That's when i would be upset nervous and with the success and the opportunities that i've had you you build to that moment when somebody says how are you not nervous when you're on the field interviewing people in front of one hundred million at the super bowl you don't you don't think about it like you're in the moment you don't think there's one hundred million people here. Don't screw up you. You get up on that podium and then you realize i gotta be in the moment with six people up here. Not a hundred million people not eighty thousand people in the stands in the moment and then you prepared for that. So i i understand that yes. That in and of itself takes a lot of talent and concentration. Forget about your abilities to an anything like that to be able to get your mind to a place where you're not thinking about that many people and that i've worked all these years for this moment. That can paralyze some people just as much as you can be excited and relaxed. Yeah and i've been around people who do get the moments too big for them at the olympics. Where it's just you and a couple of people in a studio but you're in the moment with those people not e can't think outside and everybody who's watching you just. It's hard to do but once you get to that moment where you just go okay. This is what i'm doing and you don't factor in everything outside extent extent extenuating circumstances there.

Whatever is is the steve worn project who knows But we're sticking with sports and whatever for sure because that's what it is basically hash it over a beer following the game at stephen jimmy. We're making it up in the corners as always james our things. Well not great. Steve i don't. I don't know if this if this ever happens to you but but it does to me awareness. People need to talk about it anxiety. And i've i've experienced it right. I get i get I don't know what triggers it i get. Dry mouth. I get pacing around my house. I can't leave the house account. Have anyone visit a can't make a phone call. I can't take a call. I my heart starts to race. You know it's it can last for days and not all yes. Have some music here. That might help you better. Stop steve's gonna think holy crises. a breakdown is I mean we just came off a serious show on the remembrance day. Show and said we're gonna launch in with some levity baby a little fun going into the weekend and then oh dear. Jimmy's got a major issue going on that he's going to confide in the good listener on but the is the masters Beautiful time of year for sure although it's not the usual time of year it's it's november for god's sakes and i'm surprised that i'm his into this as i am as i'm excited as i am when it's in the month of november i didn't know when they switched it from april to november for the first time that still have this much excitement for it but i do. I bet you obviously you do. I really do. Yeah yeah it's fast mean. It's the pilot of the year for me. You know so. I started watching the golf channel. I guess yesterday. I had it on there. You know now it's like You know the the week of the masters so the golf channel says we're gonna give you round the clock coverage starting monday morning you know and it's the usual suspects richler who's great. The host. Brandel chamblee justin john What's his job Congestion leonard david duval kovin so he can't be there and i really like him. Anyway they do a couple of things stevie usual stuff you highlights from guys and things and taggers win last year and and the great shots and the great victories always jack nicklaus's victory nineteen eighty six as a forty six year old so i still like it every year. I know what's coming. But then they're they're kind of running short of things to do steve. Okay before receiving the i t goes in the ground today and so you remember steve. Bring him guys on. Think we need it. We need to fill some time. Get get this guy on the phone or this firm. We've got to try and stretch it out here today and get a guest on and where it goes completely flat like it just goes nowhere. I remember bringing my cousin on because he was so hilarious my nephew. It was so hilarious at sunday. Dinner one night talking about pokemon and and it was priceless. What what the way. He started explaining it. Then this card and pika chew and all this other stuff. i said. This'll be hilarious. We'll get him on the radio. You don't talk about it. Oh yeah so. We brought them in. You know i said okay. Just just tell me what you did last night. You're gonna flip the mike on near and he goes. Okay here we are. This is crazy. It's it's all the rage pokemon and to bring you right up to speed. We've got our our update pokemon correspondence guy my nephew harry. And harry tell us about pokemon pokemon either on your here okay member last night. You're explaining about the this not fun. It's fun uncle jungle okay. it's nowhere anyway. Well you're a judgment on guests wasn't real strong back then gotta say you know that would have been around the time when you brought in while you went for a smoke during one commercial break you got chatting with a lovely man homeless fella and You brought him through security and into the studio. He thought he'd make a like a good guest on the show and all he wanted to talk about his lost mitten. Oh i jesus. I remember that i remember. That didn't go real well. Didn't go real well but some of the musicians you brought him were great. I'll say that well. Of course we had to while beer store. Of course right. We found him and he was good. Bobby cameron the sons of maxwell. Cambria sons all served. My sister popped in there one time anyway. What this has to do with is back to the golf channel trying to fill time you know so they make this commitment stay tuned into the golf channel all week for masters coverage. Well it's getting a little thin stevie and it's on the loop all this time going. I just saw this hour ago. So they're starting to repeat and then the day. Try to bring the producer. Steve television producer for the for the masters presentation right. And they bring the guy in and and richler is really good. He's going you don't understand that he does his great intro. Right said covering a golf tournament is not like any other sporting event. Every hockey is one puck one one field of play baseball one ball one field to play football one ball. One field of play golf. Is you know seventy five different balls on eighteen different fields you know with with one hundred and forty different competitors is very and how do they do it. How do they do it. How did they give you the up to date shots. How do they possibly move around the gulf result. I'm going this will be good and to tell us all about it. Is frank galardo okay. Who's the head of it frank. Good for you to be here. How long frank have you been doing this now. And he goes Quite a long time. And can you give us a like. Since when i go back to the seventies. I guess. And richard's like well as a matter of fact your nine hundred seventy seven was your first one. Can you remember that in the first one you did he goes no. That's a long time ago now. Anyway tests yeah. I think that they they probably over. Think it 'cause really. I think you'd probably be able to fill better by showing me past masters and maybe like doing it not just showing a replay but maybe showing it in a way like nfl film films always does right. They have You know the the big voice of by harry callus or john. Fa- santa and you know you tell the story of any given masters you could show that all week and i would watch that that would be compelling telling me the story tiger woods striding confidently to the majestic seventeenth t with a taste of drudgery and just. I think that would be much better than giving me. You know the monk people who aren't very good guests for starters but telling me that Buddy has changed changed his potter like three months ago. And and he's You know one putt. Less per round on like. Oh that's great. That's really really interesting. It's yeah ed it is for a second. Yeah no a little one off the cf l. That great cup week. They used to play back old classic. Great games always used to get a kick out of that. You remember the cfl. That was a league used to play in canada. Here and I wonder if they're ever going to get going again the way the way i mean. It's all these billion dollar. Sports industries are having a hard time getting their leagues in the poor old cfl which relies entirely on attendance. The like the tv deal. They have tsn. Not real good but I worry for the future. The cfl especially here in ottawa the discussions going on as good as the red blacks and their new facility have been you know this talks now about them. Having having a hard time through this and wanting to renew their partnership with the city. So i worry about everything. Cfl related right now. Hope it all comes comes through okay. Yeah yuck not good right. The last time they're looking at borough dole and Yeah the last sort of exciting thing they were talking about was expanding to the maritimes. That's right right. They had a group in and all that stuff so yuck yuck yup but back to the masters obviously bryce into shambo is the name that everybody's really interested in know. He is just not only one of the favorites. Obviously keen dustin johnson going off the favorites right now but to see what he's doing like he came out with the longest possible driver. This guy's already driving like a maniac out of his mind and he brought out the longest possible driver. I think it was a forty six or forty eight inches either way it's forty the longest possible driver you can use. I don't know if you got a look at what he was doing. Off the tee at his practice round this week at augusta. So just give you a sense for the stats here. I got the whole stats in front of me. Let me real off the first four holes where he's going to something special number first of all depar- for four hundred forty five yards. His approach is a sandwich second hole to par par. Five five hundred seventy five yards. His second shot is an eight iron. The third hole par three fifty sides. Use a three wood off the tee over the green while. And lastly number eight. Five hundred seventy yards par-five obviously and His approach is a seven iron. Like just rewriting the game right now as far as how. It's playoffs so so the great thing about the masters right. I got a practice. What i preach. I can't i can't repeat all the same thing all the time. The speak of it and all that there's telltale signs to wrap up what the masters is all about and what it means to players is tiger was doing every he's the defending champion course and they were interviewing. I'm talking about last year and doing little press conference yesterday. And they talked about him winning You know in his later years and stuff like that and he started talking about walking up eighteen like all of them do and he started crying. Oh he started crying and tagger does not crime does not cry. He talked about you. Know when i walked up there and it was just you know i still had a fifteen footer to make but i was at goosebumps and like i do now and So i start to make this pot or you know or or two putt to win. And and then i remember my dad being there the first one i one in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven and now. It was my my son charley when i won and he was overwhelmed. And so that's kind of what it means to these guys and means to the best player in the world. You know they talk to nick taylor. The canadian four canadians in it. By the way corey connors nick taylor outta madman and of course mike weir and it was his first time there and he talked about walking up the driveway. In magnolia lane. This little we thin place into around about you know when you wheel the wheel around the corner so it's just some sort of exceptional thing you know for them. What tiger did go on to say about bryson shambo. When when he regrouped is what's what's completely exceptional guy. Steve and you'll appreciate this. 'cause you play golf and anyone else who plays golf when when you if you took a lesson and someone said here's what you gotta do. Steve okay for example. If you if you had a ten finger grip you know. And then they said look. You've got overlap. You gotta you gotta put your finger over your index finger. Okay and you're gonna change that and they'll help you lock it. You would never get used to that. Never get used to it for two golf season's okay. I mean you've taken golf lessons. Oh yeah yeah so. What tagger said is this guy. In three months in three months puts on forty pounds and changes is golf swing to be able to rip it forty yards further than he ever did. That's just unheard of. It's unheard of that. The speed of which this guy can can adopt and make adjustments to his golf swing. He said it's a whole. It's something no one's ever seen before and they don't need to make any rule changes. They needed. Change anything. What he's doing is unique special and not many people can do it. It's not like everybody else is just going to go and pick up the longest possible driver possible and start mashing it the way he is right now. It's not going to be an issue and in the meantime you celebrate human achievement here. Because he's doing the special. It's absolutely absolutely. It's like any other sport you know when someone comes along and and and annihilates everybody at it you know where they just they just keep beating the shit out everyone you know. They don't they. Don't make a good point steve. They don't they. Don't tell jovic the tennis player you know we got. We got to change some rules here. You know he's beating everyone at everything. At every event you know roger federer. this is no good. You know we have tom brady. This isn't good. He's got more passing yards than everybody and no one will be able to touch him. He's going to set a record here. It's like you just don't do that right. Yeah it's like saying like i just you know what we gotta do something that you saying because his legs are just too strong and long. They're just you know he's too tall you know. We've got to change the rules. I don't know because that's what it is. I mean it's not an equipment story. He's taking what he's allowed us and every other golfer is allowed to use the same equipment and this is not a story about equipment. This story about a mental makeup of a player His passion for the game like it's almost on the spectrum. How passionate he is about getting better like is not. It's not about anything else. He's about golf and that's all and he is just driven to win driven to be better and he finds a way both mentally and physically to use the equipment that he's allowed to use. It's hard to use the stuff using You know and it's all unique. Longest driver is iran's are all the same length. He does things his own way. But it's not an equipment story because it was just about equipment. Everybody else will be doing it to ya. And what's really interesting right. Is phil mickelson like someone said. How good is phil right. It's like well. he can do anything. He has learnt everything about golf. Okay everything that you could ever teach anyone about golf phil. Mickelson knows okay. He's he's he's shapes the ball he's a left-hander. It's a right hander. Game and he's left are enormous southpaw. He can chip like nobody's business uses a different lofted club that he's tried different types of potter's different grips. He lost a bunch of weight gained weight. He's he's done everything in the game. No one can teach you. They show a clip. This week of guests who fill played a practice with and phil houses. Choice okay phil pixel. He plays bryson deschamp oil and fills never ever used attract man. Okay the you know the computer that they can measure all the all the all the distance and balls churn all that stuff is. Phil's never used one. They got a great clip of him. Walking down the fairway holding a track talk going a million miles an hour and bryson to shambles ear. He's never used one before this. I maybe he's used it but not relied on it and like bryson okay. Bryson's does shawn believes nothing to chance nothing to chance okay. It's all technical. It's all scientific. It's all figured out in the lab and everyone laughed at him. Everybody said you don't know golf's of field in the end it's a field gate you got. You gotta have all the all the you know the the basics. Okay you gotta have that. But after that it's it's it's a touch it's a finessing brazen sham goes no. It's not no it's not you can learn this. There's a learned method here that you can do and now fill is i. Can i talk to your firm. It bryson this thing where you're busting at fifty years by dustin johnson. What the freak you know. This is what makes them special because you can learn it. Sure you can learn it but it's not easily learned like we all know the gulf swing if play golf that the brain and the body and and the timing of everything it all has to be in sync and it takes a special physical specimen to turn things around like that to just sort of say. I'm gonna use a longer driver. I'm going to put on a bunch of weight's. I'm going to get really really strong. And just change everything around and most guys need years and years to change things around. We saw tiger mockup his whole career with tinkering with his swing If he'd stayed where he was. Maybe you know maybe the troubles that he did there But shambo you've gotta take your hat off to him because not only changed. But he's changed quickly and and you know like the style of a goaltender years ago and someone came up with the butterfly style that they're going to try that butterfly and a guy stands on his head one night and everyone's gonna want to freak. Was that all about right. And he gets two shots in a role in the butterfly. Think so everyone starts to take interest. Well people still debate. Whether that's the right way to be a goaltender. steve okay. It didn't you know it's something that has been going on for years and years whether to do it or not. It might work. It might not yup but no one's debating like bryson normally. We'd try this but it's gonna fall apart eventually. You know what what he did or what he's trying to do. You know you just you just assume that will work for a while but in the end you really got you know you really got to be able to handle pressure. And all that other shit he goes. I there's no. There's nothing left for pressure technique. You know so The ti- times are out by the way i was gonna say the times are shambo is going to be off with jon. Rahm that amazing skip shot hole in one in his practice. Round on the sixteenth toll along that tradition has actually been around like i know. Vj did it like an nine martin. Calmer did it after that. So jon rahm wasn't the first to do that. Did on his birthday by the way but you know how do you know any of the. I'm asking this legitimately trivia or anything like why did that become a thing where guys starts skipping the ball in the sixteenth hole at the master's during the practice rounds do i know why are you. They've been doing it for years. They do it on the tuesday or wednesday to get up there and you know the sixteen titanic part. Three is a full force carries over. It's all over water to the pin and they so they started doing that. And they pull it off the tee to like they they move it up right near the edge of the water and They intentionally What's the were of the shank it and Laser at top it. Yeah top it there you go and Skips five or six times. It was one i saw to none of the made a made the shot but it was ain't tiger woods freddie couples in somebody else always this year last year i just saw video of and it was really cool like they did it in synchronized fashion might have been jim. Furic the three of them did it was really cool. All three of them skipped it right onto the green and that was pretty cool as well but back to the just to give the times of some of the notables so again to shambo is with jon. Rahm louis used isin which is going to be a granary som Eleven forty nine. He got A jt in brooks cap gobi in the same pairing rory mcilroy and dj at noon. Then it's Patrick reed tony out. Seven forty four in the morning. Tigers at seven fifty five and another one. That was pretty. Good bubba watson and tommy fleetwood eleven twenty seven so it's A lot of interesting names and those are just a few of them and a wanted to give you a bit of a chance at a bet. Just a hypothetical bet that i heard today on the dan. Patrick show bryce into shambles. Your favorite. so what would you rather take as a bet would be bryce into shambo for a thousand dollars to win you. Get a thousand bucks. He wins or you get ten thousand dollars if he misses the cut. Oh hey missing. The cut off the longer shot for sure. Yeah no no. If this tiger on the other hand i could see tiger missing the cut. I give them a slight isn't it and he's not playing very slight chance. I mean something magical tiger and augusta. But i i don't write them off but i certainly think there's a chance he could miss the cuts wouldn't wouldn't hesitate to take him missing the cut for ten gs and soon as like some of those little oppressors. As soon as they begin to ask tiger. Do you think you can contend. Okay now these are. These are guys who fall support right. These are international golf writers. And they asked him. Do you think you can content. What right away that tells me. He does not shot that he doesn't have his game right who i mean. Who would. Who would possibly as tiger woods if you can contend for a golf tournament right. I guess the guys the best golfer. But he's not anymore right. He's not and he's putting he's not i don't even know if he's in the top one hundred and putting right now so he he's going to be trouble dustin johnson. Of course who i love. I got an affinity. For i know is doesn't never says too much okay. Never said he's always he's always sort of a little pessimistic actually when they interview. 'em say i got to improve on a bunch of things. I wasn't happy. I you know i shot five hundred but there's many things i got to work on and that's normally what you get from dustin until yesterday steve when he said i'm playing the best i've ever played. I guess you can always improve. But i'm playing really good right now. Is like that boy dusty. So i've never heard. I've never heard him speak like that. And so he's he's obviously in the right frame of mind for it. But i saw ten minutes of brooks koepka with and watch out for them. Don't you just hate about well. He was he wasn't too controversial but he was really bland. Like he really is like tiger woods was when he was in his prime. Like tiger was so robotic. You know. I'm hitting the ball well You know try and keep it in the fairway. Of course it's tough. Really tough and brooks kept is kind of the same way though. He doesn't lack for confidence either. Like he's feeling like eat healthy you know. He had knee and hip problems and They're totally behind me. Says he feels fantastic. So certainly i'd watch out for him. Well what was 'cause. I've never really liked the guy from the day. He said the only time. We're gonna see me go practices like the only time you see me golfers when i'm playing during tournament. You know and he was snubbing his nose at these guys who practice right. It was like shut up. You know and so then twice this week because the talk is all bracing right and they show this montage of asking every every favorite player. Justin thomas jon rahm dustin johnson rory Adam justin rose all these guys. They say they're asking them about bryson and all of them are very complementary. Like this kid's doing shit we've never seen before they go. What do you think he's gonna put in his driver and his bank is forty eight inch driver and they all made a calm brooks koepka. He goes all i'm interested in is an is in me man. I don't know if goes if he wants to. Driver input a drive around. I don't care. I don't care. And then they said what do you think about him. You know his workouts not day you would almost take a back to him and you are known as a workout guy goes. Hey listen i'm just. I don't concern myself with him. You know i just. I just want to took this. Yeah it doesn't take much to be a little endearing. Engage the media a little. Nobody's asking you to step far it there but at least Delivered in such a way that you you might be agent. Why wouldn't you have a conversation with that guy. Wife your cap get. Why wouldn't you want to at least be somewhat engaging and friendly. That's good for you. That's good for your brand. It's good for your bottom line. You know if you just gonna be really stoic and monotone with the media and the stuff you do say kind of rubs people the wrong way. That's just not good for you. Well you're setting yourself up for the kill men right like if you missed the cut here or so according to you brookshire in tip top shape no problem and you're just worried about you. You're not worried about some stupid driver. That guys putting but every other player is going. This is kind of cool. Yeah this guy's doing you're setting yourself up for the kill you know. This isn't mma steve or some some boxing out right where they go off in the media and they scream at each other and they call the other guy douchebag everyday great. It's not golf doesn't do that so anyway. He's a hannibal guy. He's a hateful guy when you when you hear them talk so we should do some kind of to wrap up our conversation. Do you want to do some kind of a pick. Three thing for like know. Put twenty bucks on it okay. I'll give you first drafts. They'll give me. I first dustin k. I'll take to shambo all take jon rahm. Can you got rom. I'm going to take to write this down. Because i think he probably only money. And everyone's forgotten dawson and wrong i will take. Jt got bryson and jt so then one more pick are gonna take. I'll give going to give you a nice little passer. steve. I'm gonna take exander. Shaw fli little shuffling action. Okay i'll finish it with the the prickly patrick reed okay. Couple long warmer champion and with that right. Stevie boy i gotta come on.

She's mental thing window this past three show. Final thoughts james So stevie i've started walking. Okay i started running a little while ago and then the weather's turn bad. It's minus thirteen here right now and stuff and i. Yeah i know you guys in ottawa. Shut your hole. So i i go walking because i last week. I walked thirteen kilometers. Okay in in one shot was my. My head is in the clouds to clear my head. I never walk. And i so. I got outside. I started walking. And so i've done it now several days in a row and well no. I hadn't and i started back yesterday again. I did it for several days. Enroll and then. I haven't for the last six seven days so i went out yesterday but now it's bad weather. Stevie okay snow. You know well into the minus temperatures here right and stevie if i don't give it the full header while crossing a street not the so it's like fell in your face fellow my and face man so it's not only it's like super glossy at because i'm at intersection crossing the intersection. Steve where everyone's spins their frigging tires right. And it goes like a marble surface anyway full on stevie like the not not not the feet splaying out like bambi the feet right up over my head. Okay and down. I go stevie but on the hip bone omaha. Well at least you didn't land in your face your face to face what have been destroyed might have broke my neck but on the hip bone sti. Okay that's asti. There's no punchline there. There's no fuck all i got a little exercise and i feel badly for that. I hope it feels better soon. Yeah fine on the exercise front. I played my first hockey game. Like i just got off the ice before we the podcast here played over the meribel arena first time. I've been on blades since march since kovic started i was leery for two reasons In the haven't really done much exercise since march and covert. Yeah that that part is well. And now that i've done it I don't think i should be doing it. I don't think anybody should be doing or sits. So this is the experience i arrive in the arena wearing a mask else's wearing a mask as well and so but it's pretty tight and addressing him as you know right those those old school arenas like they're only really for ten players maybe and ryan his tight as it is and So we're breaking right away. were already breaking the. What is it the two meter rule. And then we're putting our helmets on and stuff and masks all come out while still in the room. Okay and then. We go at the ice. And i got buddies on the bench that are just like remember danny heatley and when he was on the bench like spitting in gob and the whole time. I mean that's gross to start with. And i think should be banned to start with right but during the pandemic right. Now so i think doubly so and and so and then we leave and In after wait for the door to be opened in my dressing room and twenty guys pass me without their masks on two feet from me. So i just i don't know Back down stevie when in doubt leave it out stay home but much more cases in ontario. We don't have a handle on this thing. Yeah the alternative is doing no exercise. Though hockey's been my exercise. I worked out with greco. I should i should say i did a little of that too. But for the most part of my adult life hockey's been hit so the alternative is well continuing to erode here and not exercise. So i don't know what's the lesser of the evils. I guess go with that one. All right get fat. You'll be fine all right we'll call it quits right there. We'll talk to you tomorrow. Goodnight everybody like like what's call. What is it the masters like through the hourglass. Oh no that's young and restless. The younger versus like nothing other like like world like no interest through the they did the mushed dono as of our lives in the master's together like no one. We find the jim nance thing. Please no no no. No i'm i'm bitter and what i already said. Good night okay. Goodnight cygan can. I never going to get away from. We'll see i'm going to get away from. We'll see and just like oh no no not today. I'm not ready for the cat. I won't a cdl. We'll talk to you. Later is everybody we'll see.

You can connect with audiences no matter where they are or how they're tuning in learn more about full sail university. Dan patrick school to sportscasting by going to full sail dot edu slash. Espn the interruption. But i'm mike wilpon tony's national dinosaur. I'm tony kornheiser. Shout out be ground. You know as much as hugo loves and he mentioned that occasionally. He's still he's still a tough god okay right. He may have a few years on you. But you don't want you become an after you doing this. Why do you think i'm going here. You be you're the one who after we do this. All the time says that's great. Let's live from me under the bus one. We love we welcome. Pti boys and girls in today's episode. The lakers and suns are back on the court. Jacob degrom era drops again and the maple leafs dropped game seven in today with joel. The seventy sixers saw their center. Go down with a right knee injury in the first quarter in their playoff game against the wizards last night the sixers were head by eight with embiid and they lost by eight without him. Doc rivers said postgame that embiid would have an mri. Today will on your thoughts on the potential impact of beads injury. Tony you know. So far injuries are defining the nba playoffs. And this ought to be. I don't know a lesser for anybody. Who's paying attention on both labor and management. The the playoffs being ruined slowly. But perhaps surely the biggest stars in the game are hurt in the postseason and so this is just i. I hate seeing this. An embiid's case philadelphia. The sixers were really starting to play not well but great with embiid at the center of it. I mean he was playing as well as yoke into we think is going to be the. Mvp embiid is back in that space. But tony with him diminished. Or without him. It's hard for me to see. I'm not gonna say impossible hard for me to see the seventy sixers being able to get past the second round it. If you struggle with the wizards and you go six. Seven games in that round. It hurts the team going forward. It's an awful thing. This is playing so well but the theme of these playoffs so far have been injuries to stars. Yeah and bead misses a lot of time. He's on the ground a lot. Him and anthony davis they missed a lot of games. Here are the numbers. Women beat is playing with the sixers. They're thirty nine and twelve. That's great when he's out there. Ten and eleven. That's not great that means he's missed. Twenty one of seventy two games and that's a lot. I'm with green and this particular quote we're gonna need him to be the last team standing. That doesn't mean we can't win the next game without him. And that's totally true. The wizards aren't going to be the sixers four in a row. If embiid is on the moon they're not gonna do it. But as you say the bucks or the nets the sixers are not gonna be on the moon right if he's on. No no tony. Emperor tons is out to the wizards little going. You know they played really well last night. Even know rusted shoot well building schule bills to greatest stretch so as russ just the rebound volume. Russell gets at six threes insane but they need brittan. So i mean they do i mean he is a primary shooter on that team and floorspace or knows finally after all these months now how to play off westbrook. It's just you know you look at these games on who's going to be standing next. Who's standing in the next game. We moved to the west vigil. He wasn't up. The story. isn't the wizards this not yes. Seventy sixers and and there's another story to the other story. Is ben simmons at the line where he's five of twenty which stinks that's not nba quality on any level. And he's got to get better or he'll never be the player we think he is going to be and plus album at the end of the game all the time because you can't take him out he's too valuable he's too good like the fatter shadow setup guard except shack could run away from the play late in the game. Ben simmons ought to have the ball he get run with anything so he wants to run with your line. He seems allergic to it right now. Over in the west the jazz beat the grizzlies to take a three one series. Lead donovan mitchell. And he had been hurt for some games had thirty two lead utah to the seven point win. Of course the jazz also held a three one series lead over the nuggets in the first round last season before folding and after the game mitchell said quote. We've been here before it definitely is fuel. Close quote tony. Should the jazz be haunted by blowing that various same lead last season. I mean just clarify one thing donovan. Mitchell did miss. Some games missed one game and he want wanna miss that game and nobody understands why he missed that game. Now let me give you the distinction between laos sonic games at the end of the regular season. Like twenty of them. Thanks you're talking about the playoffs. We're just talking about the playoffs. That the season no longer matters this is the season last year. Utah was a six seed and they lost to a three denver. They were the underdog. They're not even supposed to win that. This year utah is a one-seat utah had the best record in all of the nba. Utah one i believe. Fifty two games. Yeah fifty two games. They're playing eight seed that had to sneak in as a nine seed because they had to win to play in games so that means last year they wouldn't even be allowed in this and they won thirty eight games memphis and i told you before you can write all poetry to john moran. You want. he's not supposed to win this series. In fact i think he was eight for twenty one last night. Utah may be in jeopardy down the line but they're not in jeopardy in this one. I don't think the talk funny how you just decide. You know who you're going to bless and you think that. Oh maybe i'm gonna forget over the years. The james didn't even make the playoffs first couple of seasons and you're blessed him and said he was rookie of the year. Mvp and and god love ninety. he did. He didn't get his team to the playoffs. So you just you just do you try to move the goal post. You can do that on pablo you do it on me now okay. Memphis will be a worthy opponent. But they're not yet right now. They're team in training with the team in formation and utah. These are close games though. Tony these are not double digit. Blow out like you might expect the number one seed to have what's number. One seed usually has 'cause memphis common. They're not going to get across the finish line right now. Tony but would it. Surprise me if memphis one one more game maybe but utah should is not last. Utah loses to be fast. It's fast easy you tell me. I'm moving goalposts. Yeah your usual. You sat there all year long. You sat there and said when are you going to recognize utah. What are you gonna get off by five and gives credit to utah. Well i'm doing it here and you telling me somehow i've changed the rules. Okay there is no way with what you where you were on utah. How much you. There's no way you think they're going to lose the series no way zero so we said i don't going to win now. We turned out a hockey game. Seven you told me you would definitely watch last night. We'll s montreal was down three games to one in this series. They went to toronto last night. They won game seven three two one. This was the first time toronto and montreal off the playoffs in forty one years. Which seems incredible. As i say it because they are the two most important franchises in the nhl bought. Are you giving credit to the canadians or you. Blame the maple leafs. We'll tell them. I think any time you you win a game seven you look at the victor you say they won is they want to pressurise highly pressurized situation but tony v.'s post. I'm listening to bury melrose and berry just crushed toronto. He said the whole thing was basically an embarrassment from top to bottom from the executives. The players on the ice said they weren't tough enough. It was like whoa. I listened to melrose. I needed to play a back. He just crushed the maple leafs and i. i'm i'm i'm likely listen to bury melrose. Who has played in these things and coached in them. I'm sure he's co some game seven. I just couldn't believe how much he smashed them. How hard he did so. I'm gonna credit montreal. Still it was still a game seven. They have pressure on them. Tony you would think that they were a heavy underdog. Given how far ahead. Toronto finished of montreal in the regular season there was a soft girl goal early and again according to bury toronto soft the rest of the game so got at least pop them a little bit having heard what's his analysis of this. So i like barry melrose. I believe he lives in glens falls where my original college roommate. Dave carpenter lives. So i liked. Barry melrose let me. Just say this. And i'm going to give you numbers here not analytics. Just straight numbers. Montreal was the worst team in the playoffs in the entire league. Montreal had fifty nine points. Toronto had seventy seven toronto. One that same division. Toronto was said to be a stanley cup. Contender during the regular season mike. Toronto was seven two and one against montreal. If you add the three one at the beginning of series they were ten three and one. Okay so how did they lose toronto. Three games and the answers they show. Yeah it's that simple. There's no other explanation. They choked in. Forget about the fact. They haven't won a cup and forty seven years. They're terrible the playoffs. The last time they wanna series i think was two thousand and four. I wrote that down. My toronto has lost eight straight series clinching games. They've lost four straight win or go home games. What what else can i'm sure mill mention. This what can you say. They're the cubs there at the cubs back in the arts and the nineties and the eighties. And they they were the red sox back in speaking of eighty and eighty six there those two franchises they see tony paralyzed by these pressurized moments. And by the way they're not. Russia is the conference championship or the finals. Even in the first round they can't get out of which is why they remind me of those two franchises in the nhl. Mike they have a lot of money. They spend a lot of agility. Get nothing for it in a game. Seven at home. They went down one zero two three. Oh come on. let's take a break coming up to. The lakers of the sons have edged. Tonight's game and the race and the giants are leading their respective leagues. Who's had the more impressive season so far. I'm not moving goalposts. I'm on utah now. Talk memphis utah. Should beat memphis. We all agree on that. We don't disagree on that. I'm just saying they've got hit ninety five on ninety five to fifty seven last. I checked with no fees or minimum on checking and savings accounts banking with capital. One is like the easiest decision in the history of decisions kind of like choosing to listen to another episode of your favorite podcast and with our top rated app. You can deposit checks and transfer money anytime anywhere making capital one and even easier decision. That's banking reimagined. What's in your wallet. Terms apply capital one and a member. Fdic province voice over artist. I'm here to explain bottomless. How do i get across free refills on fries drinks. Well here goes bottomless at red. Robin means free unlimited refills on the fries and sites that come with every burger oratory that means free refills on steak. Fry sweet potato fries. Yukon kettle chips garlic fried broccoli side salad softwares ice teas than even root beer floats offered that the knicks fire into your does robin toss up. Two men entered one man. Leaves finishes the show then starts creating fresh content. I only fans account. Was i toss up. Who do you favorite tonight. The lakers or the sons. I will bun. I never bet against lebron james but that doesn't mean i bet on him all the time. Sometimes i avoid the window. This would be i. Would avoid wisdom phoenix ever going to win a game. Anthony davis may not play. If he plays may not be one hundred percent phoenix. I think this would be the game that they would win. Lebron when he's out there. That team is plus thirty seven. When he's off their minus thirty three. So when i will say is i have total faith lebron but i don't have faith in the other lakers and i'll read this lebron quote if i can get to it quote. These shoulders were build for a reason if it takes for me to put some more on top of them then so be it win lose or draw ready for the challenge is a great question ramona. Shelburne lebron about just how much he can carry at this stage. You've been out there one hundred years and it was a great answer. Is lebron james game five. He's as great as anybody's been ingrained. Five i mean he's right. There was a koby and jordan and magic and he would obviously anybody on the russell celtics. He's so grading game fives. This is game five tony. This is the biggest game here in phoenix in eleven years. This is the biggest game since steve. Nash murray stoudamire knows you know those those. Those phoenix teams. They were finals randy got. I am take hung. I'm taking the phoenix suns tonight. Lot of pressure on them. I'm taking them tonight. Tony i know lebron grading game five. But i'm expecting chris paul now that he's back to something close really close to his usual self to lead phoenix game. Five win next. Toss up more impressive season so far the raise or the giants giants are tremendously impressive. They haven't been over five hundred since two thousand sixteen. Nobody expected it'd be this good in division with the dodgers in the padres. Beat the dodgers. Three in a row apparently gave catholic can manage and people in philadelphia. Didn't wait around long enough to show him. But if you go back to last year the only thing anybody remembers about the raise in the world series is kevin cash taking blake. Snell out you michael wilpon. You killed him. You brought down. The wrath of god on kevin cash. Snell has gone charlie. Morton is gone. They have you can't name anybody team they have no payroll but they've won sixteen of their last seventeen. Thirty five and twenty. That's the best record in baseball. And for that reason right now tampa's more impressive. Yeah i think the sixteen seventeen swathes me tony and we're gonna get we're gonna keep talking about this. Probably because if one of them drops off we'll say okay it was a mirage and if the other one one of them are both of them keep going that's going to be pretty impressive too in that division with the dodgers and padres. I mean they brought the early smoke and the giants. What we talking about the giants for off tony. I'm gonna say six hundred seventeen trumps everything right now and i can bring the wrath of god on anybody later. If any franchises manager you don. I'm sorry general manager wants to overrule the manager as often happens in baseball so much at people may crazy stupid decisions but right now it doesn't matter what they did or didn't do last year it's tampa in the moment. You killed kevin cash. And i would point out the. Al does actually deeper than the nfl. Got four teams over five hundred. That's likes take one last break still to come jacob. Degrom lowe is leading. Era mowers it. They also have to orioles. Everybody could beat the hell out of it. Oh wait from your house on. I ninety five zone. Auto nuggets is league game.

Wallace was a defender was immediately recognizable as great thatch of red hair. He was on to. Us world cup teams nineteen ninety four nine hundred ninety eight and was that rare american in the ninety s. Good enough to play in europe. He played for pottuvil in syria. In italy like that pronunciation will last played for four different. Mls teams the last of which was the galaxy and he later ran that team was instrumental in signing david beckham last has been a soccer broadcaster and has been critical in that sense. He's like brandel chamblee the golf champ year or so ago laleh derisively referred to christian pulisic as wonderboy well. Wonderboy just became the first american to win. A champions league trophy as chelsea won that title on saturday so lawless has the eat that is there needs to take a shot at pulisic. Probably pulisic had a chance a really good chance to score a goal in that game. I wish he could've turned to the camera and said let's see lawless. You know what to do happy anniversary. Derrick jeeter on this day twenty nine years ago. cheetah was selected with the sixth overall. Pick in the baseball draft by the new york yankees kalamazoo central high school. Gino batted over five hundred three straight years as a senior he was named usa. Today's high school player of the year. Houston have the first overall. Pick in drafted phil nevin fearing jeeter would insist on a bonus of at least a million dollars to four. Vote playing baseball for the university of michigan. We had a scholarship offer. All of fame pitcher how would scouted jeeter for the astros was so incensed. The astros didn't pick cheater that he quit his job. And protests craig gross was the yankees guy who scouted cheater. He told the yankees. Don't worry the jeeter would turn michigan. Gross said quote the only place. Derek jeter is going is to cooperstown. He got that right so he seems like the scouts were in agreement on jeeter and how great he would be and the astros went cheap. I guess a million dollar bonuses a lot of money back then in the early nineteen nineties was still. The scouts had it right on. Derek jeeter absolutely happy trails. Another slice of jacob degrom ziara the best pitcher in baseball. Threw six scoreless innings. Last night struck out. Eight diamondbacks lowering ziara. Oh seven one the lowest qualified starter through the end of may. Since chris short had sixty four for the phillies fifty seven years ago to grandma's allowed just four earned runs in fifty one innings while fanning eighty two. That's fourteen point. Five strikeouts per nine innings. The most in baseball to grant through seventy pitches last night. The first ten were all at least a hundred miles an hours. He didn't allow a hit from the fifth to graham one for three at the plate. He's betting four fifty two season is opponents batting one twenty nine not to put too fine a point on it but degrom has ford four runs as a batter and again given up. Only four runs as a pitcher. I'm going to go. Oh man question on you. Does this remind you in any way. Because you were there for some of this stuff of steve carlton that year. He was on that great run and he was unhittable.

Alright welcome to the show everybody. It is Steve It is Jimmy. It's a brand new podcast week and we're back with more tales of sports and whatever and James, what's going on. How is the weekend? You know what you're. You know when you're talking right now. Okay, this is so far were you four thousand kilometers. Yes something like that. You're an Edmonton Ottawa. When you're talking right now, my lights flicker like a voice wave, but only when you're talking. Wow. That's how electric I am. Yeah, it's like. FREAKING is freaking me out a Su- charge shoe. All Good Stevie. US Open. Back, wall-to-wall I lost my memory had the big day where you're watching softly adamant fifteen to one. To win. One hundred bucks on. Top. Five wins be nothing. Have to win. Win Win or lose or winner winner-take-all Winter. Tale. So bryson. was. Your winner by the way minus six nobody else was even under par. He won by six strokes over Matthew Wolf wed a bit of a cave in the back nine and your Zander Shaw. Fli. was what ten strokes back in. Fifth Place, Dustin, Johnson eleven strokes back. So that's your reset Kerryon. So Bryson Shambo is. If you haven't seen this guy play golf you gotta go watch him play Golf. Okay. A year ago he goes away and says, okay, I'm coming back new guy? I'm onto something here and I'm going to go away and I'm going to come back. Forty Pounds Heavier Steve. Forty pounds heavier and now the guy. Hits. It further than anybody off the tee. His driver Steve Okay. So your driver Steve is probably ten degree lofts. Looked, but it's probably ten twelve thirteen degree eleven eleven. Okay. There you go. So you're putter Steve. It's actually there is a little bit aloft on your putter. You don't realize it, but there is okay it looks like it's zero loft right? Right on a potter, but it's actually it's actually a degree or something like that. Okay. His driver Steve Zero. Zero on his I did not know that. Wow. Okay. So he tees up he won yesterday Steve Three Eighty. Now, not down wind not not running fairway not big downhill slope not hard hard fairway. Okay. All Day today. He when he just clip it, he hits a three, sixty, five, three, seventy. And What else stat to that? So that makes them amazing. Stephen Okay I can't say enough about this guy that makes them amazing that he can hit three, hundred, eighty, three, sixty, five like nothing stevie like nothing. Okay. He's aiming at spots during the tournament that nobody would not Dustin Johnson. Okay. Not. BUBBA. Watson not all the other guys who hit far. He holds the record st from this US Open Okay if that doesn't blow your mind enough how far can it? Winning the US Open with the least amount of fairways hit. Go figure that. Go figure that well, night, hit a deal you gotta stay in the fairway everybody says, you gotta stay on the fairway you're GonNa lose gotta stay in the fairway. and that's what's everybody's stretching their head add like he's just remade this tournament like he's he didn't care if he's in the rough because he's so close to the green at that stage because he's Off The tee I don't do you know what I left you with Lascaux Steve. What's it? I said I said the last time we talked about the USO and before it starts said Stevie I don't like the stats and golf, but here's what you do. If you're going to pick a winner in the US Open, you go right to that driving accuracy staff. That's what I said I. Don't remember that I said that's the guy who's going to win the. US. Open. The guy's got the greatest who's got the greatest driving stunt this guide the worst. The worst. So. He's just feel man he's just. You know an and look at look at the two pictures more gained forty pounds. Yep. Maze unconventional across the board like he like you say bulks up he's so long off the tee clubs all the same length. The one thing that people don't talk enough about either is that how he putts like he just looked so weird and staff is elbows her whole life. It's like, have you having like as you have you been taste did you? As you before he putted there. And and it works for him though. Don't only that Steve Okay here's the other thing. Okay. Don't kill yourself. Okay. Come Tournament. Okay. It's game on now. Steve the not there's no time now to go try and fix your swing right You you've heard that when you go to the I, T's Steve Okay forget everything just fund we're not owning fixture swing. Okay. This Guy Stevie. Okay. After the first or second round gets the golf course to turn the lights on the range. It's forty eight degrees, steve or forty two degrees he's out there with assured on hitting balls at night. Okay and they say anyone Stephen don't look. Don't do this. Don't try and fix your swing during tournament Oh. Yeah. Okay. He wasn't fixed after route. Just, like he's Crazy critters just a bunch of crazy different stuff. Yeah I, love the innovation of it at the innovation is what I've always admired of spoke about it with other sports as well. Guys who just try new things it's usually from a coaching vein or coaches try something new is not usually the players that are truly innovative but this guy just seems to be making a point of it and Yahoo Sports today. I wish the author's name I mean wonderful kind of in the first paragraph of the story about Shambo is win really I think captures the guy in a nutshell it reads he's got the Dude Bro Look of a California high school quarterback but the demeanor of a kid who reminds the teacher she forgot to assign homework he's with enough force to bring down redwoods then calculates launch angles and spin rates like he's tracking a shuttle launch. He's a swollen muscled Weirdo who might just be the best thing to happen to golf in a decade and now bryce into Shambo is a US Open champion. Yeah You know the other thing in Golf Right Steve, toe and. The other thing tiger woods when they're all the pundits, everyone's trying to weigh in. Why was so so good. Why is so good what he does different than anyone else can hits frequent further how does he do it and and one of the takes on Tiger was which was pretty good. Was this combination of His father was a green beret and his mother's a Buddhist and and they they start to say like Brandel Chamblee ferreting all these guys go. So that's a great combo the desire to win. Okay. As a green beret. Okay. Fight fight fight never give up. You know that sort of thing. Okay. So make a double bogey march to the next hole that can deflate a bunch of guys but not tiger here eagles and the other one in the Buddhist thing is living in the present. Okay. So living in the present living the present. So in golf. The perfect attitude or the perfect mind golf is I just hit a bad shot but now it's gone. Okay forget about it, and all I need to do is focus for fifteen seconds and that's the time that you draw the club out of the bag till the time you hit fifteen to thirty seconds okay and then off we go so we're not thinking about what we're gonNA hit Steve and we're GonNa forget what just great combo right so don't think too much. Okay. Well, let's go to Brian Listen to brazen desha before he hits the shot. You're GonNa go oh my God. How's the Guy Ever GonNa Swing it Asking how what's ten thirty, ten, thirty, plus okay plus three carry. How far is the bunker? Okay. What's the window house? The grasp here? Are we into the grain in the rough steve it's just like every shot is exhausting how he it's paralyzing what what the ship that he goes through. Like look at his Notebook Okay it looks like Warren piece math. It's no, it's not an easy this this wonderful athlete, but in there as well I'm thinking of. What's his name there? Russell Crowe in a beautiful mind I'm thinking you know a dash of autism in there as well. Maybe on the spectrum somewhere he's like no one I've ever seen or encountered. You know you see him battling with rules officials really just he's he such a unique character like. Tiger was a unique character for so many reasons but this guy man, he's on an island of his own and it's GonNa be fascinating to see what he brings us for the next decade on the PGA. Tour. Yeah, it's like here's what else he does. Steve it's like when he steps on the I T to compete. Okay, it's. It's almost like he hits a switch on his head. Okay. He hits the switch and he's totally in the arena and what was amazing amazing about this today is he's got a six shot lead playing the eighteenth hole. Okay. So it's in the bag is in the bag. Okay. It's GonNa be six shot lead at the US seve with nine to go is not in the bag. Because guys can make doubles in the rough and all that but it's it's done. It's not okay. So, rips reps drive. Okay off the tee and it goes into the rough. Okay. He marches off the tee says a quick hello to the camera only and dad hi sown. So one hold to go. Got One hole to go. No you don't know you're you're you're okay here. Right got one hold to go as he's walking up to his tee shot Steve He's he's repeating himself out. Loud. Give me a good line. Please please please give me a good like a good light. Stevia, it didn't matter. I'm like this guy is just on fricken Mars man you and then he makes us slider on the eighteenth green again, he's got like this massive lead. The doesn't really matter if it goes. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. You can live out here. It's okay but it was almost like the joy of calculating was bendy, pot Calculating it perfectly that seemed to excite him as much as the win. He was about to celebrate. Yeah. Well, it probably was. It probably was this fact of being under par and trying to I probably shoot Neva who knows like normally go we are not get off if one thing you know it's like, yeah, and apparently Steve He's he's a big historian of the game and when he walked into the clubhouse, this wing foot has been having US Open's there for one hundred years right? It's been nineteen, twenty nine I think it was the first open or something there, and they got a bunch of history. And policing was saying. that. Bryson deshaun walked into the clubhouse. He was around there and he looked up in one of the displays and said, oh. Those are Bobby Jones clubs. And and Zingers go. How did you know that goes they're all the same length. Looking they're all the same policy who said. I pride myself as a bit of a knowledge of the game histories. I had no idea. Idea about this stuff and he's GonNa Bring we're talking to Shambo. He's GonNa bring what he's doing the US Open now to the masters in November said, this is quote length is going to be a big advantage there I know that for a fact. So I'm going to try and prepare by testing a couple of things with the driver. So He's going to experiment with a forty eight inch driver shaft, which is considerably longer than the one he's using right now forty, six, two inches longer maybe. Yeah. So he's going with the longer driver to get even longer because well. As great and as wonderful as the masters is Augusta national, it's probably not going to play as hard for a guy like Shambo is did the US Open and he obviously brought winged foot to his knees. told me this. I've got a question for you. Do think so so for sure this, what they were talking about today is going to be interesting that for sure this guy's going to change the way kids come up playing. Golf okay. This is going to be I WANNA be like Bryson first of all. Okay. He's Loo Tiger so far but. So they're going to be okay, it's not good enough anymore Steve to hit at three forty. Okay. Imagine saying that these kids in our gonNA come up and try and hit. The the way he turns I don't WANNA to get too technical but the way he follows through he twists his whole body at the NFL like turns his hips whips around and his feet stevie. He turns his feet at the end like a guy in a long drive competition basically exactly. Yeah. So it's going to change. You know these kids are going to come up and learn this whole new way I. Wonder Steve. If this guy's going to have something to do with other sport, they showed a clip of. A D. H. with the Yankees I think and they did the the side by side with Bryson. Hitting a tee shot and this guy taking a swipe at homer. And they think this guy has used Bryson's. Sort of technique when he saw him hitting a golf ball but I don't WanNa hear anybody going on. I mean, Roy mcelroy was talking a little bit about you know it's not really the way we're. Accustomed to think about this and I don't know if it's good for the game or not but I do know that he's certainly dixie. Yeah a basically say was good for the he didn't say it was bad. He didn't say it was good but that was how he put it. I don't know if this is good for the game or not. But. It didn't sound like he was a huge fan of this style of golf and I'm like. Like everybody can do this. You know everybody can try and do it people talk about it as though this is unfair. It's he's gotTa make he's got to be able to drive the ball relatively law straight the not just length or he just. Like we talked about earlier. Competency exactly chips he pots is not just driving and it's not like. This is an easy thing to do because he's made all these modifications and by the way you can make them to under the USDA rules. So everybody calm down a little bit about changing the game and changing the courses. It's not easy what he's doing freaking hard. Right, and so what Roy alluding to is you know it's it's interesting. You bring this up because I had this down is a topic for you and I. First of all Rory Okay Steve is that really a comment for a Sunday afternoon when a guy wanted us open that's a great point. You've talked about that before about timing. Yeah that's just an awful and golf prides itself in Etiquette and being gentleman sport. That is the that is the. Sore loser comment I've ever heard in my life. Let me give. Just. So I'm not paraphrasing because I don't want to. Go into hard atom until I give you the fire code I don't really know what to say because that's just the complete opposite of what you think a US. Open champion does this is Roy mcelroy look he's found a way to do it whether that's good or bad for the game I don't know but it's just not the way I saw this golf course being played or this tournament being played. You should never Steve Never. Would you ever say I, don't I don't know if it's good or bad for the game. Half. An hour after the guy wins the US Open Yup. It's great for the Game Stevie is fantastic for sports. You know you're Jealous Murray. Well, that's his thing. Right when he came onto the tour, he was thought of as a long driver, right? Well, no one's really GonNa talk about you anymore when this guy's mashing it three eighty yeah, and no one is no one is you're right and You know I wonder what do you mean worry? What do you mean when you say it's going to good or bad so if it's bad for the game okay, let's ask them both that then Stevie the obvious is it's good for the game. He says that I don't know if it's good or if it's bad so I want to say Okay Rory. Let's talk about both those. What if it's good let's get both sides here and what would you say, rory, that is bad for the game. I'd like to hear what you have to say because you you just said, I don't know if it's good or bad, right? Okay. Let's pick. Okay. So what what's bad about? That this guy absolutely went away and dedicated himself twenty four freaking seven in the gym lifting weights drinking shakes. Doing doing yoga whatever he does you know that's just asinine comment from the guy you know it's like what? What, what they're thinking what they might think of what are you going to say it's not allowed that he's that strong. Right. So They look at three things. Steve, rightly like club head speed ball speed. And Height or something like that. Right and he's crushing. You need you need to have the high balls speed and the Club des beat otherwise you won't hit it for right and this guy's crushing everyone. And all these guys like rory and probably I don't know about Dustin dozens pretty cool. But all these guys like rory pissed. Swing the club as fast as this guy can right It's the only way at that level Steve that you get on that track man and they're going, okay you're only at one thirty, five club head speed. bryson's at one, forty two like you said, bad for the game how how is it in for the game like? You work harder. You know it's not just about talent a lot of his about working hard and that means not just practicing a lot but he's studying a lot. He's he's doing the training. He's committed his life to it and you should get rewarded for that. There shouldn't be any concept or discussion of penalizing guy and taking away all the things that he's accomplished. And and trying to bring him back to the pack about rewarding excellence and celebrating excellence, and certainly like you said, timing wise while the guys hoisting the US Open trophy you don't you don't insert a knife in his back and start complaining about this is good for the game. I'll tell you what I'll tell you why that's why that's way out of bounds to you excuse the Pun. Okay. Where he's saying I don't know if it's good or bad. Let's look at this scenario then rory. Let's say you won the US Open. Okay, at six under and Bryson Shambo was second. At five hundred or even okay. Brazen shambles even. Now. That's pretty good second in the US Open Steve. Pretty. Strong. Toughest tournament in the world to win toughest one to win. Are we talking about Bryson being bad for the game? Not a chance no not a fricking chat. Steve is very mcelroy making that comment. Yep You know what I mean for. Sure. Shambo came out and suddenly showed up looking like a middle linebacker. There was some whispers about it because you've got off to such a hot start but this has been kind of a dead subject in recent weeks because well, know the he hasn't won a time not not not the way he was winning right out of the gate like he had I think he had about four or five. Top Ten straight out of the gate and he was really noticeable and then he kind of you know he he's been very good. Don't get me wrong. But now that he's won something now these one the hardest tournament to win here and won easily by the way now yet like you say it now it's suddenly a discussion point again well, I don't know he's using all this technology and he's He's doing this stuff from the game I. Don't know if this this whole long game. So good for the game we don't want it up there crushing all the time it just. Let you go do it then. What's the idea? Gulf? Very, how can we? What do you have to do here to win a Golf Tournament Rory your top player in the world you're a number one at one time. Okay. You won the fedexcup. What are you do while Roy is going to go well, die you gotta shoot lower than everybody else okay. You gotta you gotTa try and shave your stroke average down a little bit. I was sixty nine point five my goal is I. got to get that under sixty nine. I'm going to win a bunch. Okay now. I don't talk to this guy right here. If you WANNA get your strokes down talk to this guy shot six, hundred us up. Fewest amount of strokes, eighteen holes, whoever does that is the is the winner is the best. That's it. That's all there is, and if you're doing it under the the the laws of the US, A. The rules then who cares how you get it done there's lots of different ways to win in various different sports whether it's individually or team sports in. There's lots of different formulas to get to where you want to be in right now to Shambo appears to have the secret sauce quicktime here when we come back final thoughts after these words. Do you find shopping around for Insurance time-consuming Hassle. I'm Josh from all insurance zero, sent me a text and let me take it from there.

Okay and the emmy goes to. Shits Creek. Never seen a dominance at the EMMYS. The ton. But dominance at the emmys lakes Shits Creek. Ed Tonight. Like I really yeah I watched that thing in about my wife and I just loved it. We watched the whole series in about two months. and. Five. Years Five, six years and. Yeah. So I ignored it for five six years and in the final season. We finished it up right around the season finale this year or series finale, and it was just great. But tonight as record this on Sunday night the emmys everything I've never seen anything like what are they emmys Television basically. All over the joint all over the joint the EMMYS are. Basically world and the emmys TV's Oscars and they want everything they won like. As, we record this Eugene. Levy had won best actor in a comedy Kathy O'Hara best actress in a comedy any Murphy best supporting actress in a comedy Dan. Levy best supporting actor in a calm. No Way Dan Levy best writing Dan Levy best director. It was like what is this? This is unbelievable, and so I thought I'd I thought it'd happened upon I knew it was quite popular but I was like I rolled through just shoot it up and I was like this is unbelievable. So good and then it's all said and done. Okay, I was cool but I had no idea it was as popular as it clearly is based on what the EMMYS have tonight. It's Yup. I've been told by a number of people. because you know me, I'm the barometer right for shows. PEOPLE STILL CAn't get over Steve when the a hit me on twitter I'll get a lot of guys listened to your show here. I'll get a tweet from going Jimmy. You check out this one. It's the Best Yep Yep Yep Yep Yep Yep I've seen them all and I got a lot and I've never watched Shits Creek and I've been getting people like maniacally over the last two months. And now it's Just, validated, stevie. Should Watch. Yeah. I'd say so I'd say. So if you like modern family, you'll probably find shits creek really good and then the gist of the show is Eugene Levy plays a a billionaire. Who Ran? He ran a chain of. Video stores, and well, if they, they've obviously hit a bit of a wall and then of course on right on top of that I, guess is his financial guy stole all his money. So they're left penniless they're left leave their mansion and the only thing that was that he had left to his name was a town that he bought. As a joke. Called Shits Creek he bought it to get an auction and that ended up being their salvation but yeah, quite a good show. And of course. It's father son Right Yep and if you haven't seen the show, you might be tempted to think well, Eugene Levy I've heard of that guy on SCTV's been lots and lots of movies. He must be the true star of the show and while Eugene did win the best actor. Dan Levy Hassan is definitely the star that whole thing I gotta say Eugene Levy was he was great because he he setv. Right? He was he was really strong and you're funny guy he almost got out of the way of the others like he was. He was kind of the straight man through this whole thing. He kind of he could have played a wacky funster but he more played the you know the father figure literally and and just let everybody else shine. That's what I thought anyway. Got To watch it, we should go. We've done enough damage for one day. Any final thought I think I'm out of thoughts. Thoughts TV I don't know it was. Well. Thirty some someone sent me a email. Thirty three years ago they talked about the Canada Russia series Steve Copps Coliseum nineteen, eighty seven. I did a talked about today on the spendable Cindy you're producing. Two things Stevie, if you look at the roster. Of guys who who played on that team of course, the main two regrets inland meal. Okay. But those two guys so they played nine games in the Canada Cup. The. Final was best to three right Stevie. It's the Russians it was. Mario lemieux and Wayne Gretzky in that tournament thirty three years ago. Of the exact date, but it's this month thirty, three's. Combined for thirty nine points in nine games. That's I. Don't think I'm wrong I don't think. I'm wrong. Grad said twenty one. Mariel had eighteen or nineteen and Wayne only had three goals. Marrow had eleven or twelve. Where those days, Stevie Okay can we bring back a little bit of the lemieux Gretzky things somewhere never Canada Russia. Austin Matthews failure. Okay. Connor. Pretty good but you gotta start to win some Cups Connor. Okay. Until you get up there connor pretty strong. Okay. Like, but he doesn't quite have the whole two hundred point thing going. No no one ever will know. You'll never get that back as Lemieux Gretzky if they played in today's NHL. They obviously be you know obviously top of the charts as far as points go, but that will never happen again nor will the the whole angle of the fear of the Russians there are fifty Russians playing in the NHL Right now it's not it's gone away a little bit that that sort of fear of the Russians I gold they're coming to take our game and now they're part of the NHL. So that is that's taken a bit of the shine off of because prior to nineteen eighty seven, there were no NHL players from Russia isn't that something yup? Russ was talking about maybe mogilny was the first guy to come over and was it yeah. He was the first Soviet player to defect to the NHL. Have you seen those expression Stevie? On facebook will someone will say you ask someone how old are you Steve? Right and you're going to tell me whatever your ages right or you say it this way. I'm I'm can't find the remote old. Yes. Shit that's going on facebook right I'm can't find the remote old. They are. I. But now you and I are going Gonna be able to say when your grandkids ask you, how old are you? I'm there were no Russians allowed. All. Right, I'm that old I'm I'm so old there was a time when there were no Russians allowed old that's old I am yacht. stevie madness we are getting old as pasta bedtime. Let us call it a day.

We now come to you on Mondays and Thursdays. With the continuation of our long running hit show on ESPN. You can find us on Stitcher. They have been really good about this and anywhere else. We get your podcast you guys. I know you both have a lot going on in your life. I don't know if you aware of around six o'clock clock last night. They announced the the members of the this year's class of the NCAA basketball tournament, and I would the ones and the twos the threes in how Kansas spell and Michigan state. To start with you. Ryan, I didn't I didn't feel any sense of outrage about anything that I saw with the top teams yesterday. I did not I think that. We. Consensus view that there were about sixteen that were in contention for that number one spot. And and and there was gonna be some mild outrage at least as the somebody gets in the second line. But I know I have problem with it. It was going to be the close. I think maybe some people out there. I not me. But maybe some people who are predisposed to be skeptical about Gonzaga overall, what me down is one of them. Okay. Well, would say that they're the least worthy of the four. But I I think I'm not one of those people. Well, you guys clearly don't live in the midwest where this is taking more personally. And there's a good deal about rate here, particularly Riley in Michigan for both of the teams actually in a weird way. Because now they played each other Michigan Michigan state played each other in the finale of the big ten tournament at a time when they had. Be concocting all of the final brackets. And while they say they took Michigan state's win into account by them jumping over Kentucky. The fact is and I wouldn't call it outrage. Mike, but I think it's they got screwed Michigan state. Arguably could be a number one pick. If you look at all the thing, I'm not going to go into those all the minute. Details of quality wins and number what? But they lead the way. All right there on the top of the pile in terms of opponents that they faced they face tough teams outside of their conference as well as within the big ten which got the most bids here. So obviously, that's a good conference. And yet everybody knows that Duke is a number one team in the country ones. I Williamson is healthy. And they put them in the same bracket as them. And meanwhile, Michigan who Michigan state beat three times three times including yesterday gets to go as the number two seed in in the in the side where guns AGA which you just said is arguably the weakest of the four is the is the number one team that they would have to be to get to the final four. So. So Michigan state having to play Duke in the elite eight if it all plays itself out just to get to the turnament seems wrong to me outrageous. And I'm not pulling my hair out over it more than I did. I watched him yesterday. Okay. And have you watched him this year and thought to yourself, man? I am absolutely look at one of the best four teams in Kentucky in the country. 'cause I haven't stay. Yes. Yeah. If not the top four the top six they can beat anybody. They're very very good defensively, very, strong, rebounding. And they have this amazing player in caches Winston who is can do anything. So. And that's what you look for in a in a in NCA team, isn't it? You know, can they you don't wanna team that has to rely on three point shooting because usually somewhere along the way in six games that goes south on you, especially when you start playing tough defenses, you wanna team the career bound and you want one star player they have that. Now. Does that mean they're going to even get to the final four? No. I don't think they're going to be too. But I don't think they should have to go through to play it. I think that they I think that they're better qualified personally. I'm probably biased where I lived in. Saga? And you know, here's the other question is do the do the top seeds from the ACC all belong where they are. I mean is it that good a conference a sometimes it's hard to tell? When teams are playing one another. You know, the SEC does that and football for us. It slants the way you look at it because they all seem like such great teams. Then sometimes they go out and play a team from a different conference different style. And they don't necessarily do as well. I don't think Michigan state. I know Bobby. I don't think Michigan state is better than any of the three ACC. And you know, that I'm Bob, you know, that I am Virginia denier that I just I don't love the way they play. I always think they underachieve at this time of year. But again, Michigan state got the tougher drug because they do have to play Duke if they make that bar in the elite eight, but when I look at Michigan state, and I looked at some of these other numbers. I, you know, I always I always see Kentucky getting better as the year goes along. And I don't think any of those teams are better in Kentucky. I do not either because I have Kentucky going to the championship game. So. And my very hastily filled out bracket, but I had to do it. So I did it on instinct and impulse. And but I. Yeah. Absolutely. I don't think he's better than Michigan state. I'm convinced. I I do. And I think he coaches them up as the season goes along. They always look like they're scratching around early. I always think to to me to me their talent level might not be Duke, and it's borderline with Carolina. But I don't think anybody else has better players in the country. Then Cal I don't know. I think one team that has a lot of players dangerous. Even though they they lost a game. I didn't think they were going to lose. And that's Tennessee. I'm still I'm still high on Tennessee. They've got some real talent. And guess what about Gonzaga go back to for a second? Not only do. I think they're a week number one. If they win their first round game, and circa speech Baylor. I'm not even sure that Gonzaga's going to get to the second weekend. I think. I'm looking I think they got a bracket that they can handle. And I got them going along way. They're very good. When you're not think circus that zone will present great problems for them in the second round. If we get that gay. They could very well. Yes, they could very well. And but I certainly. But I just don't think so. Bon Michigan either. I mean, you know, they John B line has been an amazing addition to that probe pen while match my favorite coach for a long time. They can't beat Michigan state this year for each game had its own kind of story injuries and things like that. But they've done pretty well over the last five six years in the NCAA tournament, including you know, the final game last year in the final game in twelve and thirteen two thousand thirteen and you know, with their guns AGA has to beat to get into the final four that. That's that's unknown right now. Michigan Michigan has a reputation of being team that has to hit its it's threes and bigshots in order to have a game not gonna just win on defense. But they are different than that team last year that was just reputation last year little bit of this year. But you take out those three losses to Michigan state this year. And they have a damned good team. That plays better as they go along, Mike, you said that the same thing about Calipar, certain coaches, clearly chefs. They know how to coach the tournament and beeline knows how to coach tournament. And so I think that there I think that could be tough out given the bracket that listen, I never bet against John beeline. I from from West Virginia on even before that. I just I love the way his teams play basketball. I'm a unabashed John beeline fan boy. But I'll tell you something which the VAT is really good that that will be that divider in Michigan in the second round. That's going to be I believe that's going to be a challenging game for beeline. Michigan. I do not only do I think it's challenging picking Nevada. Just as I said, I did this on a whim now, you're know that you're going to. They had a strangely strangely Wapping loss. But I did see them a few times in the does about as March twins made our findings in play again, Bob. He's it's not baseball. It's not football. It's not basketball there may or a hawk has teams that have him Bisciste now that have that have possibility. So I think we in the state of Michigan. We're just happy to have any team already tanking. I mean there are saving our spring year. You know, we we've had although the pistons gotta give them a little credit. They've turned it around a little bit. But anyone? Baseball just throwing it out there. There's somebody way we could do we could talk about sixty eight teams the radically. Anybody got any love for the defending champions of as to how far they might be in his tell you. I watched Bob how much you watch the big east. File was terrific basketball. Seton Hall was terrific story. And it was a really good game. And all I kept thinking was this wasn't supposed to be a year for Jay, right? This was supposed to be one of those building block years, and he has done as good a coaching job as he's ever done with these kids. And I think they have a punchers chance, you know. No, I I got to look closer at their draw autumn getting out of the first, you know, going to the regional I they play Saint Mary's. And you know, I got him winning at and then I got him playing Old Dominion being over Purdue. And that's a fourteen over three I understand that. But even if they do play Purdue on them, I like them to get to the regional and any would play, by the way, Bobby. Bobby restate, what you said on Twitter, which is so true that once you get past one versus sixteen to here's my here's my position. And I do not deviate when it comes to discussion of upset to the before we even get starting this twenty. Let's make one thing. Perfectly clear all quote, unquote, upsets cease at three fourteen and when you get the four thirteen do not do not bother me talking about an upset because the tournament doesn't work that way. And and and the balance of power is spread out enough in that middle Reich range that three fourteen four thirteen is not a huge upset. So that's my position. So I don't hear about upsets after three fourteen can now you've stated a little pet peeve. Let me get to out here as well. Having to do with the tournament number one don't have conference tournaments ending on Sunday. Because it first of all puts ridiculous college. How about not have conference tournaments? What did they what do they change except they diminish their own regular season? They don't change anything. I see no reason. It's like having a bowl before a bowl, you know in college football. It's dumb and for the longest time. The the big ten sort of held out of that tradition. And then it decided well there's money to be made. So let's get in on that. And now we have one around here, and it doesn't change any. No more to be said, you just said it. That's why they have them. You know? I mean, we we all grew up in a time when they were two conference tournaments in our formative childhood years, the ACC and the southern nobody else played conference tournaments in the fifties. And sixties and these are all the product of tunnel. Television and money, and that's that. And finally the last holdout with two years ago the Ivy league succumbed and they went to a fourteen tournament. And and which is now been played two years at Yale. And Yale went to keep at home into twenty all the time though. Anyway, they were last holdout when he ivy's went that was it the end of any, but if you're gonna have them if you're gonna have them have them end on Saturday. So there's not a discarding of who wins because some of these games do matter. They are they are between top teams, and they should be figured in the NCAA tournament committee can claim all they want that they take them in. But they boxed themselves into a hole by allowing one little slot to change because they have to make up obviously brackets that would that would work under both scenarios just end them all on Saturday. What's so hard about that? Well, it's hard about it is that mainly CBS wouldn't have a game too. Wouldn't have to games televised. And FOX wouldn't have a game to televise. And that's that. It's about that. It's everything everything our world of sports in the last thirty years has come down to two things in inextricably combined television money, which your other pavement. My other one is. Stop calling it east west midwest and south. You can't have your first round in the west, Des Moines. Iowa you can have your first round in the east in San Jose. Okay. You can't have your first round in the south in Hartford. Connecticut, just stop come up with some other way of calling it or whatever the hell it is. But it throws me off. Sports writers, we always view this thing differently. At least in the days when we were sent out to cover all of these things we would be rooting for the region that our team could get in preferably with the best weather who you know, you live in the mid west and you're coming through a terrible wintertime. You're always praying that your college team got sent to the west because you know, you playing L A or you play in San Jose, you'd play in Las Vegas. Maybe biggest, but some place warm now, you don't even get that. So while this is hardly an important point. That's my second pep peop-. So I got the four names for your nez myth, wouldn't rob. And you know, I'll give you a four. Smith. Now, there's an obvious Smith kidding. Yes. Medine this. But there you go. Carnesecca mitch? Love him to death always used to talk at this year when he's waiting to find out where Saint John's go he says, it's just a question, whether it's a big suitcase small suitcase, and I always love that description, and I can remember when magic and Larry were on their way to Salt Lake City in seven nine hundred seventy nine one was playing in Indianapolis Larry was playing in Cincinnati. And we're going back and forth. I saw they were staggered. So you could see a game every day. But you're you're absolutely right. And guess what else? Guess what else? And I tonight, you know, Bob knows this especially for fifteen years the Luke boys, and I would go to the final four was favorite dad kid outing of the year. Okay. And and I so I do love this tournament. But when these early round games are going on Mitcham, Bob the dirty little secret of these things. And why they do have these pods now is because they don't sell hell of a lot of tickets. You're going to see as many empty seats at some of these games as you do at Yankee Stadium in those expensive scenes down seats down by the field. You're right and. And it's a shame because by sending some of these teams out so far away from where they are located the average student can't afford to go veasley. And if you don't have a rich alumni base, they're not going, and I have attended so many games over my time. Because we you know, we always had Michigan. Michigan state. This is a big thing where I live, and I've covered, you know, first round regionals around regionals for as long as I've been in sports writing, and you sit there and the place especially if you're like the first game. Prices half empty and then the second half people start wandering in for the other game. So they're not really that interested in the game that that's going on on the floor, and they're milling about in the seats in the stands and and meeting each other and hugging each and you're looking around going. There's a basketball game going on here and you start seeing different colors coming into the arena. It's really you almost have to overcome the environment in the first round. And then ironically, you go to a championship if you make it to the final four, and then it becomes a different problem. Now, you're playing a football stadium, and we've all talked about then we'll talk about it again in three weeks. But now you're playing in these football stadiums where there's seventy thousand seats and the lights are weird. And the sound is weird. And all of it has nothing to do with how you normally play college basketball, and Bob, you probably remember because you mind works like this the last year that an NCAA. A championship was in a an arena that held about twenty thousand the medicine. It was the Meadowlands in ninety six that was that was the last time that we went to three arena or gym or a as opposed to a dome or football stadium. Now, the last time ninety six when when Kentucky wants which is always the crew all of us. I think one of the beauties of college basketball is that hot Jim veal, the noise the, you know, you're just drowning and and suffocating noise and now and go to these stadiums. Everything's an echo. It's an office pool of that. Okay. It's an office pool event, and it's a made for television event. And that's the fact of what we will see over the next three weeks. And you guys have heard me talk about this for years. Okay. If Zion Williamson and Duke don't win the national championship a week later. I will defy most casual viewers of this churn amount to tell me the five guys who started on the national championship team. You know, there was a quick way. You could save money. Switch to gyco. Oh, it takes fifteen minutes to find out if you could save fifteen percent or more on car insurance. And Kyko office coverage for more than just car insurance. Got a motorcycle. Geico's got you covered. Got an RV covered got a boat covered. Now. How about homeowners or renters insurance? You bet. Geico's got you covered. Go to Geico dot com today and see how much you could save that's geiko dot com. Couple of random up survey ships. I have one is that one of the charms of the early rounds of the tournament is discovering or seeing players, you know, that you didn't know even existed or the Yuli baby heard about an an and and they're not from the mainstream schools, and they and they can really play in they juice up the tournament and one of them didn't even get here this year. And I'm speaking I was mighty only one of the three who took very serious note. And it was it was hat broken. When south. Coat of state lost in your tournament. Because that means that the one of the I think is fifth leading all time scorer in a history of college basketball, Mike dome. The dominator will not be on display for us this year. That's too bad. I wanted to see Mike Don play one more kind of kids who do make you watch the purchase. Let's go back to Duke for a second. 'cause we really haven't talked about Duke, and please remember all the people in the sport who were saying, oh, and we kind of debunked. This said O Zion should shut it down. Get ready for the NBA. That's it. He's done how much money might this costume. And guess what? Guess what he wanted to play? And we're all luckier that he wanted to play on record mica. So I taught this morning saying that even if he had a chance to go directly to the NBA out of high school. He would have liked to chosen to go to college. I want to believe that I wanna blue I to look at look at he has been even more compelling than before since after the sneaker just because he went thirteen for thirteen in a good game. I. You're putting a lot of stock stock in you're gonna hang your hat on that, Mike. He goes thirteen for third think, it's good. I don't miss it sort of like bowling a perfect game in Boeing. We're well they've got they've got a just such a loaded lineup that I've read that they are one of the most prohibitive favorites. If you go by betting and all the rest of that in a long time in the turnament. And it's true. I mean if not for Zion Williamson, you would be talking about camera tish RJ Barrett in in between superlative tones trae Jones as well. The fact that they're all on the same team almost makes it for chefs key. Anything short of a championship is a is a loss. I mean, there's one thank God there's a flaw and potential fatal flaw, and that is that they aren't great outside shooting. And they and as Jay Bilas has been saying all year, they are one bad three point shooting night away from losing early. And that's that's good that that gives them. Carolina shoots betting. They god. Carol is very dangerous and very talented, and they would probably be the most talented team in the country, but weren't Zion Barrett in them. Okay. But they shoot the ball better. They shoot the ball. And you're right. Vulnerability and create create some doubt. There are not in my mind. They shouldn't be prohibitive favorites for that that lone reason. But now the other thing is this. If how do we ultimately if everybody plays there if everyone were to play their game, then I would bet on them they because they got him because the game means that he will be giving you thirty and fifteen or something and been with somebody dictators things and at both ends of the floor. He had the block of the year. We know that nothing's going to be played in the twenty th century that block in the corner that game. So we know that know. So they shouldn't be prohibitive. But well, nor does history suggest it with chefs key. It is if you look at recent history, and we sit I mean from two thousand ten Ford he either wins the whole thing or doesn't get to the final four Lee high. I mean, this is this is it for the last ten years. All right going backwards last year elite eight last year before that round the thirty two year before that Sweet Sixteen year before that wins at all year before that first round before that elite eight year before that first round. Year before that Sweet Sixteen year before that wins at all as if they show up to play in the final four, you might as well hand them the crown, but otherwise it's not a given. Now that I think this is one of those years. I mean, he's got to get there. And he's got a win it. Yes. They have a flaw, but I'm sorry. Nobody's going to take that into account with that kind of talent on that team. They are not supposed to we're here. Then Mitch the set the record straighter, but they are not supposed to lose. I'm telling you. That is interesting. Okay. This is really interesting because of the love from the turn of it. But I actually think it's justified. Okay. Just starting starting in two thousand five here's the men's college basketball champions, ready. Carolina, Florida, Florida, Kansas. Carolina, Duke, Connecticut, Kentucky, Louisville, Connecticut, Duke, vila-nova, Carolina Villanova. So they've won the June. Carolina have one five out of the last fifteen. But here we talk about this all the time that we talk about Cinderella at this time your butt, usually great big programs. When Cinderella doesn't win Durell doesn't win this thing. Oh, no. Oh, no, no Cinderella. Does win Cinderella can get to the final four. That's been proven conclusively since two thousand six when George Mason set the start set a tone that lady would include Wichita state, and and a VCU and cetera. So they can you can get an Loyola as recently as last year, you can get the final four, but it was going to be the sister Jeanne of two thousand nineteen is to jackpot question of the day. But anyway, yes, it can do that. So that's the goal. You know, final four is a is a is a distinction in of itself. It's the Oscar nomination on your resume, you know. And that that that will suffice for all the the mid majors DID that we were one of the ones you got that final four if one of them ever wins. Well, then we'll we'll have a bigger and Mitch Mitch guess what you know, Bob. Maybe right. Maybe we should not go to sleep on the team that has won two of the last three college basketball national championships, meaning Villanova I got him getting to the regional. And then I haven't playing the the the Valls and losing, but I'm bound kind of all central here. I like the balls I'm gonna do. Do not play one of their fellow ACC challengers, North Carolina Virginia until the final. What do you think of Regina Mitch? What do you think? Sorry last year is always gonna always going to shadow them. I'm you're going to have to prove to me that that there's not a hangover from that. I I'm not all in on them. I've I've watched North Carolina battle Duke without Williamson and with Williamson was a little bit like the Michigan. Michigan state thing. You get to see them closely play other in short period of time. And you know, there there was a reason that won the game when they had Williamson and and lost them when they didn't. He makes that much of a difference. But I like North Carolina, and I can see them coming out of of their region. I think predictable stumble. I also I actually picked Tennessee to come out of that. They're gimme a sleeper guy. It's funny. Two of my sleepers are kind of in the same section of the draw and that is Nevada and Texas Tech body are your sleep. Well, I got Nevada going to the regional final and losing to the Jags. I got the vitamin cheese. They're going to get by the wolverines on on route to do. So in Texas. Check as well because they're not have them beating both of them. But I honestly the auto you team that's dangerous team. I think not as Florida state. That's just mind. So I didn't speak up quickly. Now, they got a great coach great coach and the way that they're they're seating lays out they face, Gonzaga. And then Michigan if the, you know, the numbers hold, and I mean, I think that's doable. I do think that the west is easiest brag to get out of because I don't have great respect, I have respect. Just don't have number one level respect for guns. Aga. And I think Florida state could pull an upset. I liked what I saw on their championship game. And they're in the tournament. Even though they didn't win it. And. Yeah, that would be my sleep. Right. I got a couple I want to be a little aspect caught the hearts and flowers brackets teams. They're not going to go far one of them won't won't even win. But they're they're gonna be. Playing for the coach they're going to be playing their their butts off for the coach the first one is is a fairly Dickinson. And now they're because their coach last year almost died at the tournament. Greg Harinda, he was suffered a blood clot. And he and he had a very very intensive battle just to live and here he is back coaching. He's rather grateful. They're going to be very emotional. But no question, but they got no chance, but here's a team. That's got a chance to win a couple of games, and and send their coach out on a high a very well like person. Fran Dunphy is retiring temple. This is Mr. big five Frank Dunphy played for LaSalle coached pen for years and coach temple for years. So he's coach three fifths and a big five his well. Well, liked and respected. They play a play in game against Belmont. I know that's a treacherous game. But I just think they're going to win. I think they're going to win a couple of coach. And and and that would be that would be kinda cool before we go on guys. Let me say this about hair. Club.

We're sure you're gonna love the club. Let's move on to a guy that we hardly ever talk about this. Mitch is always saying, I think we should talk about LeBron. And we say oh my God. Nobody cares about LeBron. But, but but has anybody over the last several months in American sports who didn't let's say lose a job or get busted for something have a worst year than LeBron James has had in his first year with the Lakers all the way up to including getting blocked. Talking about this wok yesterday at Madison Square Garden. Yes. His under Hudson. Well now that, but the people who don't know he he he had a record setting personal PR in in re reverse yesterday. He missed eleven shots on the fourth quarter who's four fifteen self. He took the ball four times in a row to to try to get the job done end didn't get the job done. And although he damn Florida at triple double again, you know, but this is why this is the scope of everything with LeBron. But it's accessing its back this that would they blew eleven point lead late three fourteen ago was think, and you know, just another down assistant Nater out on a losing to the sons was a nature. This is a NATO losing to the team with the worst record in the league lease. But it was on the road doesn't LeBron James likes like most players to put on a show when he comes into New York. Most NBA players try to do that the garden hold damore steam for them than it actually does in the real world. So this was I think stinging loss for him in New York City, I think. Being blocked by a guy who hadn't been active for the Nixon over a month. And then got a few minutes, and it was a bad shot lakes. Mitch we had fresh legs and Brown was on his way down from his jump. When he tried to shoot the ball in fairness, not giving too much credit to marry his anger. But then he took some heat from what I've read Mike, perhaps you heard this. I you know on the MSG network, but while I was doing climate into him for sitting away from his teammates several seats away from his even his closest teammate. And he said when you're the face of the NBA, I'm quoting when you're the face of the NBA, I think you should be more a part of your team. No matter what is going on in the public. You've got to be part of your team in the locker room. You're not, but you have to exude that type of togetherness in public. And right now, we see that he doesn't really care. It's that kind of stuff that shadows. Lebron James because let's face it, use the greatest single talent going in the game with that. Because of his personality from them taking my talents to south beach days all the rest of that. There's a shadow. Chorus that kind of revels in the failures of LeBron James when he doesn't do. Well, there there are you could argue there as many people rooting against him when his teams play championships because of him as there are rooting for him. He's one of those guys and guys who have that kind of talent frequently engender that kind of thing. But right now that chorus is getting its opportunity because he is is this. This has got to go down as the worst year of his NBA career when you think, oh, it's not even close but with the expectations and the damage that has been done just over the forget the since the start of the season since he got hurt. And since he came back the damage that has been done to the invincibility brand of LeBron James has been immense. I'm gonna ask you guys a question because I was thinking about this yesterday. Are you convinced he's going to end end his? Career with the Los Angeles Lakers. I'm not convinced anything with him. I think I think he's too material. I think an opportunity could come where he saw something that would change his legacy, or you know, then son suddenly ends up for one year in Boston. I could see anything happening to him. I all add on a question and throw it over to Bob, you know, he could he could at his state. She could dictate his entire career year by year. If he wanted to say to the Cleveland Cavaliers, I'll stay one more season. They would've taken me he say, I'll stay month to month. They would have taken him. He could've literally dictated his whole career. What are you have been better off playing one more year with that group and trying to perfect it? Then giving away the thirty four th year of his of his life sitting on this bench here. He could he could he could have made this happen this year and different. I mean, everyone everyone just assumes. Like remember like, oh what had happened? It didn't have to happen. You're gonna spend another year in Clinton. He could've kept those guys together. So Bob, I tossed that over to you and less he not too good question unless he surveyed the situation and saw what was coming up from the rear, and knowing that they you know, they had a hard time just to beat Boston and Philly was coming in and Toronto who they I know they've looked Toronto. But the that they would maybe I forget the sequence of events about Butler. You know? So I mean about Leonard excuse me, the timeframe near you can if I knew the answer to that that if he knew that Leonard was now in Detroit in Toronto, remember, which that would be interesting. If that's the case, if I were to be maybe he could survey he would've aided landscape got to get out of these now because no one would expect him to win the championship this year, they expect an improvement just making the playoffs and having maybe winning around, which of course, that would have been tough 'cause they would have been seven or eight. But anyway, just going to great question, Bob, nobody thought and Mitch nobody thought at this point in the season. He would end up being closer to last place than two first place. That's true. That's a good one. Yeah. No question. No, no, not even I remember they were relatively close to remember. There was a time. Oh, yeah. Machine they were relatively close to the warriors in the standings, Michael check, the time, you you bought it up a couple of episodes ago about you know, we can't get away from the fact that the that he missed seventeen games, and they were six and eleven at that point really when they were still in the thick of the battle for the seventh and eighth that was you could argue very, right? That was the difference. But no longer, you know, now that they're hopelessly out of it. Anyway that they did miss. That's going to be part of the stories. They missed seventeen games they were six eleven well. But now there's more to this story than just that. There's we're what do they do next not just with the free agent. But with all the guys that are on that roster. Lonzo ball becomes a question. Are you keeping him or not, you know, did you learn anything about him or not I've read so much stuff on him that they you know, they've actually played better when he was there, and he was a good complement to LeBron James all the way to you know, you gotta get this guy off the team. He can't shoot in his father's detriment. And all the what about Brandon Ingram? What what about Kouzmin when they first when he first went there there was when they were twenty and fifteen heading into Christmas. There was a lot of talk about. Hey, it's a young players league. You got the best player in the league on there with a bunch of pretty good young talent. By the time. He's done mixing ran. If you follow the LeBron James formula that former that worked in Cleveland. The first time. He was there. Cleveland the second time he was their Miami. The first time he was there. He molds the team around him. And yeah, they don't end up winning the first year. But by the second year, he's got them. All humming. This is the first time that his blueprint just didn't work. And I think if you were to ask him in his heart of hearts to to say, what's really bugging him. It's not that he got his shot block. Although I don't think likes that on the court at to end the game at Madison Square Garden. It's that his MO Joe his magic is magic blueprint. I show up guys. Get better we tweak we add we put in and we win has fallen apart. They're further behind now than they were when he joined the franchise you just defined in so many ways why he's so different than any other big name star game including stuff career, including Durant, including an anti dicamba when coding Leonard or anyone else you want there. He is. He's he's. On it's over and above just being a great basketball player. He is he is truly a brand is truly a phenomenon is truly in a much more than just a great player. He wants, you know, and that's the way he set himself up. He's so I'm saying he has set himself up as this kind of person consciously, and and successfully and now has to suffer the not an deal with the consequences. If it doesn't work out to a satisfaction. I'm going to give you a great staff. Okay. Because I just looked this up. Undescended twenty-ninth the Lakers were eighteen and eleven that after so after twenty thirty nine twenty nine excuse me there eighteen eleven the warriors are nineteen and ten since they were eighteen and eleven the Los Angeles Lakers have had a record of thirteen and twenty. The bottom fell out there. And we we I sound like, I'm stuck disk on this. I don't say broken record anymore. Stuck disk? Okay. Do you believe that they have a management structure in place, even with LeBron James in the house to fix this in LA because I am not convinced that genius. Magic johnson. Rob Pelinka can fix us. No. There's no track record suggests that the you know that the that they that. They can there's no doubt. This is. This was an interesting decision. Made on the part of the gene the have a an agent of a, you know, an icon of yours who had never been in administrative and basketball. So yeah. No. It's it's it's it's an administrative failure. I'll put this out there that the and this is almost weird to say. But I think the future of LeBron James his legacy in the NBA going forward. Not what he's done before. But going forward will be determined by other players, and those other players will include these names, Kevin Durant, collide, Leonard, kyri Irving Klay Thompson Kemba Walker Tobias Harris Middleton, some of the guys who who are out there as free agents who could join him in Los Angeles. And this is Mike you say, you're stuck disk on that point about management. I'll do the same about other players in the NBA. I don't know that it's a slam dunk in their minds that they think if I joined the Braun in L A, we're gonna. Win at all not giving some of the other places that they could go or stay meaning Oklahoma City. Meaning and Mitch if they don't get Anthony Davis. They're not gonna win it all that's the guy. That's the game changer. And I'm not convinced now that he can end up there. Well, first of all, let's not forget the reason I didn't list him. He's not a free agent. I know I understand he gonna be rolled that he's gonna be in play. But they can wait. They don't have to do it this summer. You know, they still have. But they can't go into another year wouldn't make I weighed kink. But what if they don't get what if what they're getting offered as a joke? You know? I I don't know. All I'm saying is it's not mad that he doesn't control his own fate. Those other guys do. Kevin Durant can make his own decision, quiet. Leonard Irving Klay Thompson these guys at Jimmy Butler as a player option that can all make their own decision on their future. Davis has to just be enough of a pain in the butt to go. But he can't decide where he's going. These guys can. And if they collectively decide, you know, what the king eight what he used to be and and going and playing with him when he turning thirty five and signing a three year deal to do that while I'm going to be playing with them when they're thirty five thirty six thirty seven is that going to get me what I want? I know it's it's it's sacrilegious almost to say this that any player wouldn't want to play alongside LeBron James for several years. But I'm not sure that they're all looking at it the way that they used to put us here Durant. Always said, you know, it ain't easy being his teammate. And you know, other players have have said the same including urban. For the first time that this year that question was raised. It was never it was unthinkable thought that you would say you don't wanna play with them because of the nature of his game in the passing nature of his game. And the idea that I think he has been team oriented to to a fault at times in his career that. Ever wind up saying what you but that is a thought out there. Now, there's no doubt about it ally. Did this before we get off an NBA it's long as we're talking about the NBA and talking about free agency and talking about the teams trying to figure out where they're going to go from here. Michael on a scale of one to ten what are what would you put us the chances of either Durant or Irving or or both ever becoming a New York knick? I think that people that I've spoken to and people whose opinions I respect about the NBA do believe that climb in the agent and Durant do have a fascination with New York City, and what they think it would do to Kevin Durant own brand. So I don't think I can rule out that that Durant actually might shock the world and do this. And then you might see his agent become the latest agent to get a front office position in the NBA.

Well in a world where Odell Beckham is now playing in Cleveland, everything is possible. Yeah. All right. So we we really can't say I want to jump over before we finish up here to the world of golf. Yeah. I always always find this an interesting study. So I click on ESPN onto their Gulf page share top story on there. Page progress perspective and Tigra slow Bill towards the master's next story. Rory mcilroy wins the players it is literally ranked that way. And once again, Tiger Woods comes out of the Players Championship. Nowhere close to the front, and the whole story is I'm right where I need to be for the masters yard are like Jok Cousteau on Friday on real whole. I know that for a second and Mitch you're one hundred percent, right. I have the same fascination with the golf page golf homepage. And ESPN because if even I sometimes think that even if tiger is practicing they'll find a way to inject him into the tournament story. And the sad thing is we saw a surpassing performance by guy. I think is the most talented player in the world, and that is worry McElroy as the golf you're really Mitch and Bob the golf you're really began yesterday. Today now that they moved the players back to to March. Now, we've got the masters in April and the PGA and it began with worry McElroy on the back nine at sawgrass showing to me. Anyway, somebody loves the sport and follows prime more closer than you guys. Do that his best is still better than anybody else's best? And guys he walked off the sixteenth. Green after hitting an amazing second shot on a par five out of a fairway bunker, and he's telling himself I have to make three more. Good swings meaning one on the island green and then two on eighteen to do this. And that is exactly what he did including striping a driver on eighteen over the water to the middle of the fairway when a lot of guys thought the more prudent play would it be to hit a three wood three hundred forty seven yards mistaken been paying close attention of what's going on. And it who season begins in the second week in April. And there are so many of them out there. Let let it be known that worry McElroy. Knocked on the door. Every almost every time out this year prior to this week has not has played wonderfully on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and has not played someone to play on Sunday. And this has been this is a story line probably top six finish after Bob one number. This has been a number one storyline of the early season golf for those of you who haven't been paying attention and notes for him to do what he did yesterday at this point for shadows. Maybe a monster year. I mean, he's already having an excellent year, by the way, let's saluda. He gets the biggest paycheck in history. But this over two million. Let me go back to what Mitch said. Okay. Mitch to further validate what you just said I've got the homepage up. Now. SPN the pictures of Tiger Woods. That's headline. Okay. Here are the top headlines golf yesterday Simpson. Flagged after accident ball movement McElroy holds off furic forty eight year old Jim for to snag and then the three out of the next five headlines. Mitch Tiger Woods key feels right on track. Overcome slow star postseason par seventy two the other day and miss devoiding. Second water shot on seventeen which Mitch probably would have been the end of everything people. Yeah. You mentioned the money that ROY McElroy made. And the thing that makes Tiger Woods. This continual. Devotion of unwarranted stories in headlines is that unlike every other player in golf. His success determined so much of the media who covers him success from the TV networks to ESPN and the rest that they're almost invested in in having to pump him up, even when his Goth doesn't deserve it. Now, we and other people can sit here and look at it. He doesn't deserve to be a headline. He's not playing well enough to be a headline. He's an aging golfer in a sport where the younger guys get it done. And yes, if you comes back, and does something amazing terrific, but long past are we to be reporting on improvement or getting better, whatever that that's been the Tiger Woods story for years already? And yet the because so many watches and golf clubs and balls and everything are sold and sneakers and Nike gear when he does. Well, there are these people were just literally tied into his successes their success and from the networks to the people who cover him to websites and so. Oh, he gets this crazy disproportionate amount of tension. It's almost like wishing could make it. So meanwhile, mcelroy's much more of a story and not not only because he's been playing well, but because the flip side of playing well is that he wasn't finishing. And you know, sometimes that could come back and haunt you was coming close playing well, but not winning here on. This course that is a good harbinger for the masters, and he said so himself terms of the style way place. He comes back and wins Holtz holds off a good field. And now as a few weeks away from from playing Augusta, and he ought to be if you're going to do five stories, and they ought to be five stories on him, not one macaroni one. Now. Here's five stories on tiger. And it's maddening as a member of the media to watch this, especially because you know, it has so much to do with business and ratings than it has to do with news. And Bama Michigan thing. Here's the thing about macaroni, and Brandon sharply pointed this out on Brandel Chamblee. Pointed this out on golf channel after his round on Saturday. He went out to the he was the last guy on the range that night. No swing coach. He's out there finding his own game. It was such a cool thing to witness. Not jets kind of my question. We'd be Mike since you are the Gulf grew here. What am I missing anything? He seems awfully easy to like. Oh, there's nothing not to like about this kid, you know, he putted badly for a couple of years. He's still got the master mitchum. Bobby's got the master's thing. He still looking that would complete the career grand slam like thirty. Okay. But no, he's the best. He's the greatest driver of the ball I've ever seen and and he's fun to watch he's respectful of the game Arnold loved him. Jack loves them. None. Oh, he's the real deal. And I was so happy that he finished the way he did yesterday because you're right. The narrative bend that. He. Finish. And now he's got to go to the island green. And then he's gotta play with an Atlantic Ocean. It looks like of water down the left on eighteen and he played he went for the pin. He went for the fairway. He put the ball on the green. He is really could a birdie. Both the last two holes. None. Oh, there's Bob and Mitch there's nothing not to like about this kid. All right. Let's wrap things up with our parting shots and Bob Ryan, why don't you lead us off? Baseball has historically been intolerant of gamble. It was an issue in the nineteenth century. It was almost wrecked by the nineteen nineteen black SOX scandal for decades. The first thing you saw as you entered any clubhouse, and we're gonna is baseball was an admonition about gambling in two languages, but C-league as Commissioner wants denounce gambling as quote, unquote, evil and said, it was it would destroy the sport another, quote, unquote, destroy the sport. So now that baseball has embraced MGM as a gambling partner and his whole wholeheartedly into the gambling thing. How can it handle the Pete Rose situation? That's why he's not in hall of fame. Ballot case, you didn't know because he bet on his team while managing the reds right now, you'd have to say so what I understand that a lot of work a ton of work goes into the selection of sixty four teams in the add ons for the NCAA tournament, which once again will be treated as being more important to climate change over the next three. Weeks and because there's always such interest in the tournament because of office pools and all the screaming about bubble teams in the big band dance. And who want to be number one and number two or number three? We too often give these people who get to play God as at least basketball God's at this time of the year far too much credit, especially when they act like weasels, it's what they did yesterday. When they got an attack of the cute and decided to have Richard Patino, Minnesota team played Lou -able his dad's all team in the first round. You know, who doesn't deserve that Richard Patino, a gifted young coach who saw his team grind it's way into the tournament. You know who shouldn't have to answer questions about his dad this week. He shouldn't. I don't care. What happens in this game? Which Patino didn't have a team that got left out of the turnament. He got screwed. Anyway. Not for the good of the sport for sport. It was two words it came in a fax it read simply I'm back on this date. Twenty four years ago. Michael Jordan returned to basketball after an eighteen month absence to try his hand to professional baseball. It will be the start of his second act and an amazing second act. It was jumping in with just two months left in the season. He still averaged twenty seven points in the regular season games that year and thirty one points in the play offs. And while the bulls didn't win it all in that short Jordan season. They sure wanted his next three years but looking back on that day. I realized Jordan was the harbinger of something else. His two-word facts was the modern foretelling of the tweet. That's right back then faxing in your own new story was news in itself. What today athletes regularly save all their biggest headlines for their own social media Facebook Twitter. Heck, I just read where Harada gotta the non longtime NFL lineman announced his retirement through an Instagram image on the top of mount Kilimanjaro. So there's one more thing that we can say Jordan, dude as well as and. Before his modern counterparts the idea. Breaking news to report is dated these days still done on occasion. But feels like a throwback to words, I'm back. You wanna talk about the efficiency of Jordan's game. If he were tweeting, he's still have a hundred thirty eight words to spare. That's going to wrap things up for today's sports reporters podcast. Please note that you can get this on Stitcher until your friends it's easy to get on that network there. And that platform we do this every Monday and Thursday. So we'll be back in a few days until we see them on behalf of Mike Luca and Bob Ryan. This is Mitch Albom. Say have a great.

EPISODE 036 - PATRICK ROY TO COACH THE SENS? GAME OF THRONES FINALE, KEVIN HAIME ON PGA CHAMPIONSHIP

"Steve one project. If we work at it for a few minutes, we get Jimmy rate out of there. Hello, everybody. Welcome to the Steve Warren project, presented by faces magazine episode thirty six best NHL player to wear number thirty six ever UC yo Khanin, come on number thirty six. You can do better than that. Pick up the pace a little some of the things are gonna get into today. Patrick could wa- maybe the next head coach of the Ottawa Senators sounds, according to Bruce, Gary off from the sun. Sounds like he's gonna get an interview got a member poll on who you think should be the sends next head coach. We've got the blues. Heading home one win away from the Stanley Cup final MAC, T is out in Edmonton, and Kevin hayme is going to join us to talk a little bit about the PGA championship. Brooks KEPCO with a massive lead and almost blows it. But just hangs on at the end Dustin Johnson falters a little bit. So we'll talk to Kevin about the weekend. That was in the PGA Jimmy with us as always our things. Jimmy has weekend been. Davies awake and was good. It was a major, right? It was a major. So I got to watch that and my girlfriend almost pulled it off. He just collapsed. The not really collapsed. Brooks kept go right had, we'll have this massive Lee. We'll talk to Kevin about a buddy had this mass of seven or eight shot lead after the first two rounds you shot, sixty three and sixty five on this monster of a golf course. But he was the only guy did that obviously with a with a big lead like that. And, and DJ was right there at it. It's showed its teeth today and it got it got Brooks capita, who fell way back. I think he was twelve started the day at twelve under and, and, and fell back to nine or eight or nine under and anyway, dusty was within a shot and bogie tools coming in. So that was the end of that. And he just had to big lead. But they made it, they made it exciting near the end and I was pacing. And you know. You know, I love DJ Stevie so terrible day. And he just seems to find a way he's always right there. And he's always hanging around, you know, grounding the club back in the day on which major was that was that the USO fuck. He's done two or three of them excuse my leg. I'm trying not to drop the f bomb Steve as much. He grounded that was that whistling straights where grounded his club in a bunker? You know the, the penalty at the and then the three pot on eighteen at another major a ball move thing. But that's the year he won because he won. I think in twenty sixteen because Brooks one two zero. I'll tell you what I think, I think what title he holds Steve right now. That is not the one you want is, he's got if I'm not mistaken, the grand slam runner up, which is second in all four majors. Anyway, it was great. I was pulling for him. But, but Brooks just had to bigly, you know, it's often said the daughters. Mary men who are very much like their dads. Have you ever kinda made note of that, that DJ looks a little bit like Gretz a little bit because there's a couple of Gulf magazines seen him on the front cover of and I kind of walked by, and it was, like, what's Gretzky do on the cut all it's Dustin Johnson really that kind of put two and two together. Yeah. I've never thought you don't see that. I mean you've been you've been with them in the same room. So, yeah, like yeah. I just I've never looked I've never looked. I mean Dustin six four Wayne's, I don't know six feet probably where the same height six six one. Going to have to look, I'm going to Email you a photo of, of a magazine that came out about three years ago and, and it's dead ringer for, for Wayne Gretzky anyway, we'll get more talk coming up with Kevin later on in the show for jump into some hockey on remind everybody that faces magazines are title sponsor faces tells Ottawa stories, showcasing the people places, and events the make onto a such a world class city.

They're great people. Visit all ins dossier, or text six one three eight six zero six zero zero eight. What did you think Jimmy of the news, that Patrick wa maybe in the mixed for the Ottawa Senators head coaching job, this agai that in twenty fourteen when the jackass Dems trophy as NHL, head coach of the year with the Colorado Avalanche things came apart in Colorado, ended up by quitting kind of in the middle of the summer caught the Avs with? Unawares and it's been Jerry Bednarz since he's been down to the Quebec junior Hockey League since then as well. Do you think Patrick doi- would come to Ottawa, and if so, could he coexist with the equally emotional Eugene, Melnyk, you know what I guess there's one thing you need with a coach or which was very helpful is, is a French-Speaking coach auto our courses a brilliant idea. If you can find the right guy. That. And most of them have been guess. Right. I don't think it's Mark was Mark Crawford, French. I don't know if he speaks, French, or does he do interviews in front. I don't think he speaks. No, it doesn't do anybody Boucher's been here for the most of the last three years. Yeah. Right. So, so that's a reality. I think about a head coach. It auto that, that, that's, that's a, that's a factor for sure. I don't know where this guy's been. I, I didn't I knew left Colorado. Of course, fears, go, but and did he by junior team? He did he bought he was Quebec's coach in the Quebec major junior Hockey League. And I think he sold them. But after I think he went back to be their head coach. He's not the owner anymore but he's the head coach there, still and maybe wants to get back in the NHL that's where he's been. Yeah. The only thing I don't like Steve is if this guy really wanted to be a head coach, you know. Or had the had the real passion for it. I'm not saying he doesn't, but if they had a real passion, I think he would have stayed in the game somewhere in the NHL. So now, does this guy whistling there, if, if there, if they want to romance, a little bit to try and get them in Ottawa which, which can work for the reasons I just said is he into it, you know, is into it? That's what that's where the interview would be really big. You know, in my mind, you know, to Hitchcock rates been around a long time, but, but he meant marching into that interview said, let me out this team. They need a bunch of help, and I could fix it. So. I don't know. I wanna be a fly in the wall during the interview to see what he has to say. What do you think I wasn't sure what to think? And then my wife missed mistakenly read a headline on social media, and she said to meet over breakfast. Hey, I just heard the sense hired Patrick wanna like all they did. I and it was it was a mistake. It was just one of those speculation pieces, but I was excited, I was excited to have a kind of a name guy, coming and an I excited by the, the sports talk that, that will create like Eugene Melnyk. He's a certain personality and most of the time he's able to pretty much steamroll over everybody but Patrick wa he were ever hired here. Nobody steamrolling. Patrick wa so. It would be really, really compelling theater, and well, I'm here in Ottawa, and I'm watching a lot of sense hockey, so it would be something. I'd enjoy. Would he be the answer? I don't know because the thing that I think that fans and media make a mistake doing. Is judging a coach based on what they see on TV and the can't hear anything or what they hear in a media, scrum. How is he with the media those things don't factor in to me at all? Only the people that have been a coach with this guy or manage this guy or have been a player for this guy really can put a good, you know, really know for sure. What, what this guy is all about. But the guy for sure, though is super emotional and hard on his players. The needle tips toward shit. Disturbing with this guy. Right. It always has. Yeah. It'll be interesting. Well, whoever you think is the best head coach alive. The reality is, this is not this is a team, that's not a great head coach away from being a contender. So you want someone in there, who is good with kids. And I gotta think Patrick watts got a little of that going, or they might not have asked him back in Quebec. You want one guy's good in that regard and is just going to steer them in the right direction. Do I know he'll be great? I have no idea. I mean like you say you wanna talk to guys who played for them guys of managed him. Guys coached with them. I put it out there to our members who do you think should be the next head coach, g money wrote anyone? But Patrick wa please, which of course, which, of course, means it will be Patrick wa maybe it's the kick in the ass that this team needs, but I think is personality will clash with the fan base gen gen thirteen rights. I think it's between Jacques Martin or status quo. If they can't land Marta than I think they'll end up bringing Mark Crawford back. Graham Ramstad rights, definitely gonna stick. With my original choice of jock Martez coach, Gregg carve Ellis, assistant. Chris rights, I think they'll bring Jacques Martin back good with young players teaches the d I Michael Franken like Martin with assistance. Mark Crawford, and Rick bonus for the along with Chris Kelly. So thanks to everybody who set along some notes couldn't get to the mall. There was a lot there. But thank you, all for some very insightful stuff, as Rick Bowness hung in there. Or is it just me as a coach in the NHL? Yeah. Think when you factor in head coaching and games coached as an assistant coach. I think he might be number one all time in terms of the number of games got a million billion but he's in the mix for head coach he good for him. I think he's. Either going to get an interviewer already has now. What did you think about maquis being out in Edmonton, Ken hall, and derives with the Oilers, not that long after Craig mctavish who I don't know had some executive role with the Oilers decides to step away from the team? And now he's going over to be in the K. H L, your thoughts on that. Yeah. You know, I always thought that. Craig matatus along with Kevin Lowe and scouts day. Samantha was part of that before he died and a and a bunch of other guys that ended up being called the quote unquote, old boys club. And if you live here, you got tired of hearing it that the others will never do anything anymore because they keep they keep the old boys club. Together, you know, even Keith Gretzky came into that name when they brought him on his assistant GM under Sharad Ellie, Wayne has been hired or has as a business deal with them to be a consultant and an a real partner in the team, which I believe he is. I so I thought I thought Craig matab had a lifetime deal with Darrow Cates. That's what I'd heard, and I believe that to be true. I think he could have stayed there, if he wanted to that, it would have been under the under the deal that Cates made with them. But can haul incomes in I think, Mak left on? On his own. I think it, it became a place for him. Where he he just wasn't as useful as he wanted to be. And. What what's really strange though? What's really strange to me is, I think he's probably employable. You know he's been a head coach. He took that team to the finals in six against Carolina. And he's got a place in the league. For sure for sure. He's a absolutely. Wonderful guy is of fantastic guy for what he's been through in his personal life. And he's, he's battled cancer is clear that now what is really strange to me? Steve is he's decided to go to Russia on a two year deal to coach with I call locomotive or local motif, I dunno other pronounce it, which is, of course, became infamous for the, the plane crash in two thousand eleven at the start of the season that that team plane went down. But that's where he's going for two years. And I have no idea why you would do that. And the reason I say that is. A bunch of guys have defected, right from, from the NHL over the years for various reasons, either lockout or they couldn't settle the contract or they're going to be sent down to the minors. And they decide to go over to the cage L to play. I think the money over there is way better than people think, apparently most of it is, is real NHL money. And I suspect that's the only reason he went there, because Wayne Gretzky said have out our boys. You go over there thinking, it's a you know, a sweetheart deal, and then if you're from North America, and played played the greatest game in the world in the NHL and grew up in Canada, the United States or, or in Europe and get treated the way you do in the NHL. It's, it's superb Wayne is always said that it's all things aside. It's a fantastic league. The travel is unbelievable. We charter everywhere. We stay in five star hotels. We got catered meals in the locker room, the dressing rooms are unbelievable. The, the DOE is a -rageous and he said you go over there. And wait till you taste the first meal that you don't like you know the heat goes off your apartment. Whether you get paid or not is sometimes can can be. An issue there's all sorts of stuff, you know that he says you'll come running back here so fast. It'll be pathetic. So I'm not saying that will happen to mactavish. I'm talking about this. But I can think the only reason is because you getting paid a lot of money, maybe saw the writing on the wall. You got a new GM in there and Ken Holland new GM's like to bring in their own guys. Well, you know what I like I hear nothing but great things about Ken Holland to, you know, he's, he's mctavish is ill. They've been around, you know, the same length of time. You know I think Stephen on hockey teams that. Once you get below ownership. You know, you've got you've got your presidents in your, your general managers, your system. GM's and maybe your head a player personnel. You know, after that all those jobs are easily replaceable. All the other jobs are easier, replaceable front, office jobs, and player personnel jobs. Right. There's a million guys who can do a million of those things. So it's not like machi- wasn't replaceable. But I think they would have found him a place. You know, I, I think it was probably more Craig who said I don't you know, I don't want to do what I'm doing here anymore. It's not, not what I think I can do best, you know, and so he's taking this head coaching job. I don't I don't think can would have fired him. I don't think there was any of that at all. He's, he's been to entrench in the team and the city, I've done charity events with that guy. He's spoken advanced. He is so eloquent and so passionate about the city he's. Credible. He really is incredible guy and super humble man super guy. So there's no way anyone would have fired him not not in a position. He was in here. I good stuff when we come back want to talk a little bit more about the PGA championship, and we're going to be joined by our old friend, Kevin hayme. He's a golf analyst on TSN radio. So we'll get into Brooks kept goes big win seconds straight PGA championship win. First of all, I want to remind everybody that Jim Kaye Ford and their new ad home.

So, you know, I always have a story Steve, I it's like word association. You, you bring up something. And then just a bunch of things fire off in my head. Okay. A bunch of things. So you brought up a pickup truck. Okay. So I went on this fishing trip with these guys. And I love this story. It's true stories true, we went on this fishing trip and a guy board is company pickup truck the boss, let him use it. And so these fishing trips Berta man, these guys know exactly what they're doing you, you by case arise, Steve. Okay. Twelve bottles awry, and then on your way to the, the lake wherever going, you stop at a farmer's place you shoot him. A couple bottles awry, he gives you, firewood, you got a bit of food. And then we set up camp and, and, and we got the, the pickup truck there. And. Or Rhett, the farm of the pickup truck loading this would. And the, the one of the guys in the trip is fucking annoying. Immediately immediately annoying. Okay. He's drunk a talking, too much, and he's a pain in the ass. And, and he in about ten seconds after loading logs into the back of the back of the pickup truck fires through the back window because he threw it to art. Okay. So he shattered the back window. Same guy, we can't. We get to the cath. We set it all of its dark rugged and hammered any proceeds to step on four the rods that are laid out, you know, to go fishing at five in the morning breaks, the rods right sits down in a fucking chair. You know I wasn't a swear today. Steve, I was trying not to swear sits on a chair collapses, the chair we all go to bed because we're sick of the guy. Okay Stevie, and he fell asleep in his lawn chair and fell with a big with the big downfield jacket on into the fire. Oh my God. Yeah. He fell into the he lived himself on fire. Okay. Was totally engulfed in flames, this guy. And, and we were all sleeping sort of going. Yeah. You go put them out. I don't know. You. We don't we don't the guy with water. Okay. And his hands are all burnt and. In the morning, we're like maybe the guy just be passed out for two days here and the more he's the first guy up at five in the morning. Come on early bird gets the worm. He's clapping his hands together just boils on them in blisters. So he was driving us nuts. So we get out in the middle of the lake. And he goes, I gotta go to the bathroom, right? And we take me back and we know we're not taking yet to take shit. Oh, no. Yeah. Of course it was a pissed. You just you know, he's just have a leak over the side of the boat anyway, without hesitation into the lakey went. Yeah. And have dropped a deuce in the lake. Yeah. That'd be weird doing that while you're treading water. No. The whole that whole thought you know that whole thought, but, you know, everyone has a story about everyone has a story about the pain of the ass person on the trip. You know, and this guy was sitting broke sunglasses, and rods. And that's my pickup truck story stuff while, you know we were talking about him, you know, on fire there for a second. It reminded me of the finale of game of thrones. It's all over. Jim goodnight, everybody come on now. I don't Jinn your poop story there. There was a lot of lot of fire victims in the finale tonight and well, I'm not going to spoil it for anybody. I will say this disappoint, you know what Steve. It's funny you say that because I make fun of game. I haven't I haven't seen an episode of it, but someone's someone text me or tweeted me that tell Steve, it's a shitty final season is the most. Sappointing thing ever. The I can't I can't disagree. It's almost like they brought in. I don't know if they did or not. But it seems like they just brought in new writers new directors. Oh, like visually. It was visually. It was still really special like it's just unbelievable visually. It's still for my money. It's the greatest TV series I've ever seen. But yeah, the last season left something to be desired and where the characters were going. That's all and you know what Jim, I'm watching the show that you recommended called Dr foster. What a good show that it is. It's, it's hard to explain to people. It's like I'm I'm, I'm beyond a sucker for Netflix. I love it. I've watched more more series than you could ever imagine of watch them on big, big, big fan of the British. Crime dramas. I've watched all those. They're great Shetland. Of course full the fallen all that stuff is good. Anyway. Clicked onto this thing the other day. It's weird. It's hard to explain. I've watched all of it is to seasons. And I've watched them both and there's no murder in it. There's no there's no threat of anyone getting murdered there. There's I it's just a crazy story with without give anything away about a couple who've the husband got caught cheating on his wife and just this sort of long drawn out thing of her trying to get back at him. But realistically, but it's a yeah I'm glad you like it. Good good. Good good. I do that. All right. Let's let's get some Gulf talk here as we promised by the way, the raptors. Oh, they are breeding say anything shaped it. Oh, really? Let's say anything. Yes, they're into overtime, and then we have to do this podcast in the middle of the night here. So okay, you're not saying anything, but it'll be it's going to be coming. Vote on Monday this podcast. Can you plug your Steve eight okay, hang on going to? No, I don't I don't wanna hear I taste plug your ears for a second. Because the good listener will probably wanna know. I'll tell you what I'm gonna tell you what happens, Dr foster. Okay. Fine line. Hang on. Hang on. Okay. Okay. Ready? Get k- go now don't. One eighteen to one twelve in double OT. They trail Milwaukee to one heading into the four tomorrow done done. But back. Yeah. I'm done. Okay. To be annoying super annoying for sure. When I was a little boy, I my pleased to be joined on the line by Kevin Hayes, the Canadian national teacher of the year. And also a golf analyst on ESPN radio's busy time in Gulf, second major of the year is in the books and Brooks. Kepco is your champion Kevin Hayes joining us on the line. Now. How you doing? Kevin doing great. Yeah. Kind of weird boys, two majors may hair, Kevin. This jungle here, I'm warming up here. I'm warmed up. I'm rubbing my chest from our old days when used to teach me on a play golf, and I was impossible, Kevin. So I went to tell you about I am now Kevin but I could probably help you at your range is. I went on a golf trip. I museum five or six zero five or six I was so the first day they made me, twelve okay? Okay. Now, if you need someone before we talk about the, the major if you need someone how to hit the low thin push fade to, to along the right ditch. I'm here and about only about two thirty. Kef used to power fade Jimmy. I think it's a, a little more of a Pook cut nap. Argon apex is Jim. I'll tell you what. I might might clubs are so big, Kevin. Okay. They look like I don't know. It looks like a lawn chair that I'm swinging. Okay. Just to get the ball on it. I'm terrible. You never talked to me about the mental side. Okay. I've gone mental playing golf. So I'd rather watch it. Like I did this weekend, leaving pretty good though. What of what an event? Yeah. I was pretty mind. You. It didn't really catch my interest, those guys DJ and Brooks kept guy, they're pretty robotic. And we lost kind of the tiger storyline there. He missed the cut but just amazing. You guys we're starting to see tiger babies here. Tiger was the first real athlete to get into the sport and workout in the gym and you know just analyze every little minute of the game and worked so hard at it now we got a whole generation coming along. Brandel chamblee. I thought had the the line of the week for me said. Brooks kept good swings. Ben Hogan, and looks like hulk HOGAN, which is pretty right on the Mark. But the, the story Kev, like this golf course is supposed to eat people up. I thought it was. I thought, what what happened? What was what did happen was actually what was going to happen all along that he just got so far ahead that he was afforded mistakes. And, in fact, that's how it ended up you know, Jimmy, I know you know, DJ and he's such a great talent. But he always seems to just have that little flip of focus today. I mean, gosh, she got it to one back and how to hit that iron shot into sixteen. And just instead of like placing it where needed to kind of, like tiger did at the masters right? Controlling the flight. He flighted over the grain hit a little hard and then bogey, and that was the end of that. And he seems to continually do that, but you're right kept ahead that big, big cushion, it was going to be hard for anyone to catch him. Let's talk a little bit about the course it self Bethpage. Reputed to be just. Absolutely maniacally tough. There was actually that sign that I think I saw a bunch of times, most people probably did on social media. It looked almost more like a, a sign for an electric Houston hazard than an actual Gulf. Course. Is it as tough as they say? Yeah. You know what I've played it boys. I brought down my whole staff of teachers about six years ago. We played in a six degrees celsius day in October, and one of the four of us broke eighty we played the tips everywhere. Yeah. It's a, it's a great, great test is a stout test, their certain fairways, you gotta fly the ball. Two hundred forty hours just to get to the short stuff and deep bunkering. You know, it's telling house course, and if you know anything about his golf courses wing foots, another one there, big golf courses, and you gotta hit the ball, really, well, you new one hundred to one longshot wouldn't win this event. And you also knew that one of the longer players in the game would win if the question was who and kept ca came out and you know maiden announcement there before even started this week saying he thought it was easy to win majors. And, and then he went out and followed it up. He kinda called his shot like Babe Ruth was pretty impressive. I liked Kev. I thought the highlight of the event was his chick going in for the big smooch before the before the first tea, and he gives her the full Heisman says get away. Got really work to do. He's got a little work to do you know what though he he life really simple Jimmy. They've been together a while now named Jena SIMS she's on social media quite a bit. But you know he goes with his little team there. That's another thing about today's game. And how great these players are not only are they fit, like crazy. But they've got teams right? He brings his own chef in. He's got his coach with them. He's got a short game coach Pete Callan works for them on the short game. And, you know, he just he's so focused getting to these big event, it's really funny circumstance. He's now won four majors in only two regular PGA tour events. We've never seen anything like this really before. Right. Where it normally you gotta win a few times on tour, and then you get your legs undertone you learn how to handle the emotions and the pressures of a major. This guy's the exact opposite. He's he's a big game player a big game hunter. I guess you could say any. All business when he's on the Gulf Garcia. You don't see a lot of emotion out of the guy. I'm sure he and Janet will be celebrating this evening. Goodbye. Tiger Woods is always a big story. This was a bad one. He missed the cut. What do you think happened? Yeah. I didn't like the fact he didn't play it all. I don't know what you guys thought of that. But I didn't like the fact they didn't tee it up once between the masters in the PGA championship. I mean, I don't care who who you are. You've got to get the adrenalin flowing a little bit and, and just test things out there. So he decided not to play in the Wells Fargo this year. I don't think anybody even tiger. Woods is great as he is can just jump from major five weeks apart and play, well, so, you know, I thought that was a bit of a mistake, and we saw, you know, I hate to say it because, you know, his club head speed has been tested up in the high one twenties in, it seems like he's still an incredible specimen, and striker the ball, but Brooks kept ca made him look, a little old, golf course was a little more. Than he could manage it. He even said after missing. The gutty said, look I was hitting five arns into holes in Berks cap was at nine. We used to hear everybody Ernie Els VJ Singh say that about tiger. So he looked just a little bit old. I think he was a little rusty. And that golf course exposes you only six guys broke par this week. So he just wasn't quite on it. And that was probably the worst course of the year for him because of the length of image, it off the top about the new PGA major schedule the PGA championship fully at number two instead of glories last shot at they used to call at number four. Do you like that? I think I do guys, you know it was interesting Bethpage was lucky we've had such a terrible spring here in the northeast. And I was afraid they barely have grains to put on their only what six six hours away from six seven hours away from us. But I guess they had decent weather in that area, decent enough weather this winter, but. I suppose kind of exciting, I'm a little concerned that the, the open championship now in mid July, and that's it. I mean, if you're not into the playoffs, which they've been around ten or eleven years now, so we're getting a little more used to them a little more excited about them. But, you know, if you're not really into the door, jamb, internship, and then you've got late September. You've gotta either a Ryder Cup Presidents Cup, depending on the year things are going to close down pretty soon. We're almost in junior and three of our big five events are gone. Right. The Players Championship the masters in the PGA. So got the US open pebble, which will be incredible. We've got the open championship at row court Russian Ireland which will also be off the hook. It'll be amazing to watch these guys play golf course. But I like it right now. Because with watch it in may. I'm not sure how feel though by the third week of July, we won't have much more watch, you know, Kevin, I'll tell you because I know Steve wants ask. About your charity event and stuff. And seeing all that's going. But this is a this is absolutely a thorn in my whole face. Okay. I feel like my face is being shoved in Fiqh and campfire the FedEx Cup, Kevin still. I don't think they figured it out. I think you need a degree in calculus. They show the board every five minutes and I don't understand one of the fuck and points. I don't understand who's in second who's gonna win. It's ridiculous. The only thing knows anyone knows who the champion is at the end. I want your thoughts on that because I think they've tried to fix it. And they're still nowhere near this thing being fan-friendly now doing it again this year. Jim it or know if you remember, but this year, what they're doing, and I'm with you. I mean, they're making so many tweaks that this year I think depending on where you finish you start so many under. So everybody starts in a different point. One guy is going to be ten under one guy is going to be five over, and then they're just going. Play and they think this will make it easier. I you're right. I think it's a bit of a hot mess. I really don't like it that much and the PGA tourist drawn to make it a big deal because they own right. They don't own. They don't know any of the four major. So they want the playoffs to be a. A big part of their tour. I even notice don't you guys notice when we're watching television that I mean they're playing in Florida and margin they're updating the fattest Cup every ten seconds. You know, like it's this big, big deal. But I just don't think they've captured everybody with it yet, but they're plugging away at it. It's certainly not going away. Anytime soon joined by Kevin Hamied, Canadian national teacher of the year. Also the Kevin aimed Gulf center, here in Ottawa, and we want to talk a little bit about this great fundraising initiative had going for several years. Now, the Kevin hayme kids to the course than to eagle creek and not just a great event unto itself. But really exciting because you've got this. Well, she's, she's a superstar now in the LPGA in Brooke Henderson or sister Brittany there as well. Maybe give an overview of how it went and what it meant to have the hendersons there. Yeah. Awesome. So we do it at the second Jews, Dan may every year guys. It's the fundraiser for our big junior, golf initiative. My wife, Lisa. And I started this twelve years ago. We've now put upwards of seven hundred kids bought memberships for them. So yearly memberships of quality courses say God and chase their dreams and kinda learn everything that golf a teaches you right from integrity to honesty and, and respect a little bit. We get the kids take their hats off in the clubhouse and. It's been an amazing amazing twelve years watching all these kids kind of turn into to two great community citizens. And, and some of them become great golfer through that kids in scholarship down to the states anyway. Every year we have our big kids to course, classic were sponsors. Of course, participants come out, and we spend a day of golf and have a big auction and paying our main sponsor, Ronan plays in the event. Got a g ten plus ping driver this year. They bring Brooke into give clinic, we had one hundred eighty five kids and got a clinic with Brooke Handerson in the afternoon while everyone else was playing golf a spectacular success. We raise seventy two thousand dollars profit, and we can use those funds to do so much great work with kids in the community, but Brooklyn Brittany were great. It's their fourth year. They've been with us. They're sweet kids, they're getting more mature and sharper and better on the Mike. Every year, but they're just really good small town. Canadian people. And she is wicked good. I mean, she's got five top ten's this year. Righty, she's got eight wins on the J. She twenty one years old chill win handfuls more of tournaments her average on the PG or on the page, a tour right now guises just under two hundred eighty yard average off the tee. She's a great ball striker and she, she can't wait more than hundred fifteen pounds. She's tiny little thing and just rips the cover off the Gulf ball. So really fun to, to watch her hit the ball and really fun to get to know the hendersons, or good people will tell you, Kevin. I'm so short now. Okay, I hit it so short when I was away on this trip to Baltimore. I hit a par five in two I was bragging to the pro. He said, okay. We're gonna change it to a par four. Well, can't we really appreciate you jumping into the virtual studio? You're actually our first first person who's not Jim ri- that's been in here. And I was worried that we have trouble getting all three of us on as it turned out, you, you got an easier than anybody. Jimmy trouble. I am not surprised that Jimmy was the one who had a hard time getting into this thing. That was fantastic. We should have recorded him trying to figure out how to connect. Here's my preference. Okay. When it comes to technology, Kevin, and Steve, here's my preference is if I have to log on, like, like I do with this stuff, I would rather someone come over here and just rip out Ripa, one of my kidneys with no anaesthetic. Okay. That's what it feels like for me. That's what that's much fun. I'm having we'll talk to you later, Kevin. Good to catch up. Awesome stuff's, keep it going. You sound great. Awesome. Thanks, man. I really appreciate that. See Kevin take care of friends, say, hi to everyone. All right. Thanks to Kevin hayme for joining us, and any final thoughts today. James here on this Victoria day, as we record this any final thoughts on the show. You know, Boston, screw things up for me member. I said Carolina was going to go all the way sweep what did they get what they just got up -solutely wiped out absolutely wiped out. I mean it happens. Cardinal always said, there's no such thing as upsets in the playoffs. So. I mean Boston was probably the favorite, but, but not after the first two rounds anyway, screwed it all up. All my all my betting numbers are off now. I got no tickets. I can cash you know, there's a reason. They didn't win the presidents trophy this year because there are flawed hockey team. They did a lot of good stuff. They laid out they worked hard, the bunch of jerks had the whole storm surge. They were a fun story. But it really felt to me all the way along that somewhere surely clock was going to strike midnight on that Cinderella story. Now, now, listen, why did my final thought turn into your final thought I'm hurt those a rebuttal to your final thought? So do you have a final final final thought a rebuttal final rebuttal?

How is the weekend? I'm just I'm just covered in raptors. All right. I watched the game last night, they win four straight Steve. Do they lose the first two and then win the next four? They sure as hell did. Yeah. They win the fourth straight. I was reading a bunch of stuff online today. The, the city goes upside down they go crazy. It's so cool. I liked every moment of it. My favorite story was, I think down around Union Station, which is, is where the. What's the Fairmont? What's the Royal York is there and the and the train station stuff I was just jammed? They're talking eventually, they're trying to get out of the parking lot, and they surrounded his car. And he couldn't move and he said he loved every second of it. Apparently, there was a semi truck okay with a flatbed open flatbed on the back trying to make its way through the street and the people just jumped on the back of it. And they use this thing like a stage. You know, I'll tell you what, Steve OI. I've been many exciting events as you have, whether you're there in person or watched on television. Big ones. Of course, the Stanley Cups here in Edmonton are huge. I don't know if there's a more exciting two minutes in sports than the last two minutes of a basketball playoff game. You know, that means something and that, that, that two minutes last night. I was I was wickedly enthralled with the whole thing, I mean, it was right on board. Basketball's way different final two minutes than any other hockey game or or even a football game for that matter. You know, you, you can have the score changed hands ten times. Matt ten times in two minutes. It was just incredible just incredible. Loved every single second of it right now. I am all in. I mean the like you said, this is so exciting right now to watch Toronto upside down to watch this way, this team has played Kawai, Leonard hockey not be a massive fan of what that guy's done in these playoffs. This is winning over basketball fans in this country. Obviously, the NBA has a strong strong following in Canada. It's been fascinating since the raptors arrived on the scene. How many great young players, particularly in the GTA have gone. Like I over on the NBA draft couple of them and lots of great players from the GTE, making the NBA. But now it feels like I don't know. There's this explosion now. They make the. Nba final for the first time fans are suddenly all about the raptors. For sure for sure, you know, the cool thing about it is, you know when you watch a hockey game or football game or baseball game for that matter. You sort of know how everyone's doing, you know, you, you know that the, the quarterback shit because he's throwing three interceptions you know, receivers gone crazy with a bunch of receptions, you know, you know, tackles and all this stuff. You get a more than a general sense of how guys are playing in the game. You know. But when I watched that basketball game, I don't know. I really don't know anything about basketball. Okay. No more than than probably the other day to day guy. You know it's five on five. You gotta break down. You're gonna you're gonna put the basketball of the net, but you just don't have this. You don't get caught up in who's doing what you know. I just found myself watching that game just wildly. Cheering for the team. And that at the end of the game, those stats wouldn't mean anything to me until I hear the experts in the pundits, break it down. You know how good I let her wasn't stuff like that. But the point is you don't need to you know, you don't need to, you know, your football freaks TV, right? You watch the NFL and tons of guys who watch their mmediately on a guy there meal. You know this go governor Bob, blah. Can't they make a pass? Why did it? What did they run the ball so much when they're when they're past game was so good? And I don't need to know any of that with basketball, man. I don't you know, I used to watch a little bit of basketball. But that's the cool thing. And I think that's why this thing will. Engage tons, and tons of people. Now, of course who were otherwise not basketball fans who are going to jump it on this thing. Well, when you care so much about the outcome, right? Like, you know, the last two minutes of any NBA game, you know, that's always been a joke with a lot of my hockey buddies in it was like, wow, the NBA's fun, I only really need to see the last couple of minutes, just fire hundred points up on each side, and we'll watch the last two minutes and save some time. That's kind of been the joke is that is something to that. But when you care so much, about the outcome that you've got a Canadian team in there that, that's quite endearing. Like it's all of a sudden with Kawhi Leonard at the helm of that thing. It's just it's a different ball club. Let's go back to Saturday. Raptors beat the box one hundred ninety four in game six they win it in six and this moment was, perhaps the most memorable one. The raptors are up by six the bucks have the ball. It's midway through the fourth and then Kyle Lowry goes to work. Behind the. The heart of. That clip, courtesy of TNT so to recap that Jimmy Lowery steals the ball, he sprints up court. And then he pulls up waits for Kawai kind of hands it off like a quarterback, handing the ball off to his star running back and Jim Zain right in the face of Milwaukee's best player Yoenis Tenneco. And that is a signature moment, best player beating best player and boy did the building exploded at that stage. And there was really no turning back for the raptors after that. Yeah. Yeah. It was. I watched every minute of I've watched a bunch of rapper games, though. I started watching them, right? When they got in the playoffs, you know, and as much as I'm saying, I don't know anything about basketball. You get, you know, I was screaming, you know, even in the first quarter when Milwaukee would sort of be at the top of the key and passing it around three pointers or three point or, you know, but, but then a guy would break to the basket, right? And have a clear lane right all the time. You got a block that ain't. Come up. Someone's got a block at lane. Don't let the guy in there. What are you doing? You know, like no one basketball my whole life. It was coached a little don't sell yourself short. While idea I did when they'll busted for pot. That was my coaching story in basketball, maybe blocked to block the lane to the puck dealer. Okay. Can you block that lane because no NBA player smokes pot? Of course. Anyway, I was I was pacing in my living room and I live alone. Right. And you'd think there's nine thousand people when I was watching the game was screaming and yelling. Yeah, you and Drake. Drake wasn't shine his celebrations once again during the game he toned it down a little bit because the bucks complained about him a lot in the last game in game four and back in Toronto. So he toned it down, but he still was being drink. He had the Kobe me river hoodie going. I wasn't at their mulling the head coach reading nurse like he didn't game for giving him a massage mid mid game. They're actually having actually had betting going on. That's whether Drake would touch Nick nurse again or whether buck star Yoenis tentacle would have words with Drake, are you. Okay with the the way he carries on in the course of game. Well, the apparently the history of it is the I think they brought Drake in. However, long been there now to to, you know, to sort of increase the of the game, I think is the whole idea when Drake came along. Yeah. His job is global ambassador of the raptors. Right. And there's no one better baby. There's no one better. Tell you what, though. I mean the guy's obviously passionate about it. It's not something he's doing for the dole, although I'd, I don't know if he's making a bunch of money or not. But he excuse me, small thirsty. He. If I was against if I was playing Milwaukee. All right. I'll tell you what there's a bunch of times. When I'm raptor fan where I'm going, hey, Drake. You've got to shut up man. You gotta shut up, you know, like tone it down baby. He's in their face. Steve, when they run down the sideline when they run in front of them to feed away, because he's virtually on the bench his seats and he is ripping them ripping the man. And I'm so, you know, I thought some someone's going to someone's gonna throw punch this guy, man throat punch, let's get back to what's important, and that's the actual basketball and what more can be said about coli Leonard, I honestly for a good early part of the season I was wondering, okay definitely Toronto at the better player in that deal. But, you know that all that load management, you know, giving them so many nights off and the early part of the season. I wondered will they regret that at some point, this guy is so clutch, and so good, and no matter how you wanna play it. He's like unflappable out there and. I think right now even if leaves in the off season even if the raptors don't go onto win this whole thing, I don't think any raptor fan will ever regret now that the trade for demar Rosen like that's how good I Leonard has been other athletes. Could really look at this guy. And this guy's amazing man. He doesn't fist pump. He doesn't. He doesn't puff otas chest. It doesn't do a lot of these other players. Do that. Just drives me bananas. You know, you know with these celebrations, like, you know, like they've just want a war, you know, I've always hated that because they make so much money. And aren't you supposed to do that? You know, aren't you like a like a linebacker football when they make a sack you know that there's everyone lies down and does this team celebration or scores a touchdown like well you're supposed to do that? You know, I couldn't imagine doing that in a million years. Yeah. He's a mazing guy readies humble, you know, the most you ever see maybe as is a little wide when he makes an incredible play. You know, or or even when he made that, you know, buzzer winning basket against the Sixers game seven overtime. You know, he was he went sort of crazy got malls. You know, but exceptional guy love the way the guy handles himself in every other athletes should look at that guy. But credible victories that they've done and, you know these and winning American game. Right. Winning in American game is brings me back to the blue Jay days when they when they won two years in a row, you know, love it somewhere James, Naismith, Almonte Ontario is rolling in. How long did they place with the bushel basket for a net? And finally, after about ninety times of pulling the ladder over someone go. Hey, why don't we cut the bottom of the basket out? What do we do that? Yeah. What was that one of those old, Canadian television public service announcements are vignettes where they had James Naismith and want to get all the guys something to do for physical fitness. And they put up these peach baskets. And it's very thing that James Naismith said, well, why don't you cut the holes of the bottom, and there's this Rummy who says Buddha, I need these peach Busquets? Oh, god. Yes. Exactly. Exactly. I can't wait for this final, though, man. I can't you know, when the owners gotten the final in two thousand six after many years of being duds, the streets were insane upside, down upside down the there's a street here called white avenue, which is just on the south side runs. It runs east west away from the university and dump dumps into the school, but it's equivalent of the market in Ottawa and that place even even on home games. Right. And away all games. All games the you could you couldn't find parking spot. You know, the, the they had to they were forced to shut the street down, and it wasn't planned. It wasn't planned like the outpouring of fans. You know this, this, Toronto thing will be crazy. This'll be crazy man. I go down there Stevie. If view people think I'm anti-rot oh, but I'm anti maple leaf. When you get down to it. I know honestly. To watch that crowd going berserk. They had the, the, the single Jurassic Park, which is their fans own outside and on Saturday at actually ended up opening way late the normal because they had lightning in the area. So the cop said, stay away, it was supposed to open up around six and it was like an hour, at least before the got in there. And still it was a sea of people they're out there chanting. We the north. Let's go. Raptors cop cars at bosses. Everybody honking their horns. It really was a night in Toronto that no one there will ever forget that they get to the NBA final for the very first time and they should be the should be over the hangover Thursday because that'll be game one. Raptors taking on Golden State, the starting Toronto for sure. But the warriors are, you know we know what they're about. And they have been basically an all star team. And that's what everybody said. When Kawai Leonard got there's like the raptors. They have a good chance to win the east. Yeah. But Golden State will be waiting. For them all the same will see if the rafters can handle these guys, you know, that drastic park to not only did the fans stuffing that what you see, I love the way they show them to after every big basket. Right. They've flashed the crowd going bananas is the size of that thing. How it's expanding like early in the early in that series. It was you could see where it ended you could see the back fence of it. And last night, it was they blew that, man, when, like five times as deep absolutely. The Stanley Cup finals getting going. Now we've got as we record right now. The Stanley Cup final is firing up tonight game number one as Boston takes on Saint Louis. The question going into game. One tonight is will the Bruins be rusty because they've had eleven days off, now between games and this an amazing stat that thirteen of the last sixteen teams that have had more rest have gone on. On to lose the series. Come on. I don't care if I've had a year off, you know, if I'm going to the Stanley Cup final. But that's an interesting little stat. You just brought up there go onto lose the thing if you go back, and you mentioned that, oh, six Edmonton team. They had nine days off before the six Cup final, and they lost on and they. Yeah. They lost. They gave up ten goals in the first two games against Carolina, and went on to lose seven so they righted the ship a little, but got off to a tough start auto of the year later two thousand seven had nine days off and they lost the first two games of their series. So both Edmonton and Ottawa lost their series. However, keep in mind that Saint Louis has had six days off, and that's a lot of time off when you get down to your timing of your goaltending and just being in the rhythm of the Stanley Cup playoffs six days, a hell of a lot a time. So I think they're both probably going to be thrown off their game early. And I don't know if that stat will have a ton to do with the outcome of the Stanley Cup final who's who's. The favourite Steve Boston, I would think then be any question about that. Boston is heavily favored in the first game. So the odds makers aren't putting any stock in that eleven days off. No, they're not. So did you go to the game Steve when automobiles in the final? Yep. Well, we're no. It was. Oh, three. We're supposed to go to Anaheim had auto a one over New Jersey Anaheim was waiting that year two in the Cup. Final jersey one we were supposed to go. Yeah. They were going to send the whole morning team in two thousand three to Anaheim shot. Yeah, that's, that's I was reading the little blurb on. Brad Marchand talking about when asked what you would put in the Cup if you won. Okay. So I've been around that Stanley. I'll tell you story that haters of mine, are just gonna love when the air. So Brad Marchand in, in a everyone knows the story of the guys distraction, dirty Licken people's faces a year ago punching guys in the back of the head after the whistle. We're a shift disturb. Exactly. Shift disturbing. The ask him what he would put in the companies like almost creepy toast crunch. A baby. And lot alcohol, what, what I sort of backed up a little bit. When I saw that the baby will be in their bathing in the alcohol. I guess I don't know. I guess is he expecting job or something or put the drink while the babies in there, it'll fall? But when I think about it, I seem to remember someone putting their baby in the Cup. I can tell you that story that was Detroit's. Kris Draper had a newborn baby into celebrate the Stanley Cup party was at might have been his day with the Cup. He put his newborn baby in there and did so without a diaper and the baby proceeded to have deuce in the Stanley Cup. And every time the story comes up, I start thinking to myself, would if you told me any glass, or wine glass, or beer, glass or anything in my cupboard. Right now, someone had once taken a dump in it. I don't think I'd have that glass, laying around nor would I drink out of it, and yet that thing is. Fifteen twenty year old story. So I guess everybody's okay with it. I'm not yet. Can we get a new saucer for the top part of the Cup? Okay. Can someone get us a little metal saucer from someone's t set? We've got to have that on your drinking out of a Cup that once had to in it. When was that now must have been? Hopefully it's after my time early two thousand says I've had face. I've had my face in that Cup before. Oh, yeah. What did you drink out of it? Whatever was in there, whenever all right. Well, that sounds at least potentially gross. I wanna come back in the show, talk a little bit about the sends. New hire DJ Smith. New head coach at a chance to sit down with them on Friday. The Rb computing web poll as well. I wanna remind everybody that Jim Kaye Ford and their new ad home. Test drive getting some great reviews.

Check it out today faces MAG dot CA and there you can as well. Find out how you can get issues mailed to you. So our question today is about DJ Smith? No sense. Head coach, he was officially hired on Thursday, at the big media tour on Friday as well. Are you happy as a sense fan with a choice of DJ Smith, essense coach? It's a simple. Yes or no? That's our RB computing web poll and it's funny Jimmy. How when you sit down and talk to somebody how they can kinda veer you in a direction, I was keeping an open mind, I was non-committal on it. You were kinda worried about it. I mean he's only been here a couple of days, but his big media tour. He came off extremely well. You know, this is the big bad ass business of sports. And whether you like it or not. But professional sports is all based on wins and losses and say what you want about the guy. That's good that he's, you know, you need a media savvy guy. But it you know that's what I like to look at twenty games in, you know with a guy and it's it's can you win hockey games. Right. The same thing with a player, you know, as good trade. Have they done this thing, very well? If the guy goes, minus twenty you know, and as in his first ten games, or something he's toast, you know. So that's the big unfortunate side of it, I guess, or or on another hand a good reality about a good reality about it that, that we're not into the feel good situation here. But typically, the Ottawa Senators gotta do something quick and get a going. But we'll see you know, we'll see. He's got a track record of winning. Here's a great track record of winning from his junior years. His OH L resumes. Outstanding he won the twenty fifteen. Memorial Cup is a head coach. He went to other memorial cups as an assistant coach. And so, yeah, you're right. I mean, of course if stuff goes wrong, and, and there's no success on the ice this fall, then I'll feel differently. If things come apart from that perspective, but you can't do anything he can't win a Stanley Cup. You can't compete in the month of may. When your team's been limited for month and a half. So the here and now he said, all the right things, and I would say that I'm relatively optimistic. Got some good feedback. Good member Graham Ramstad said I wasn't sure when I first heard the name DJ Smith because like most I didn't know much about him, but after doing a bit of research and listening to the interviews. I'm more optimistic about next season with Smith running the bench. Matt grant rights. I think it was the cheapest choice doesn't necessarily mean the worst. But it doesn't make me think it's the best. I'm disappointed in who Dory on. Didn't interview that being Bradshaw. And finally, what's the deal hiring candidates after marathon interviews of over seven hours? Maybe add a little structure that interview and Matt Cox, finally they picked a good coach, but until they start giving their top players, long-term contracts. It wouldn't matter if it was Scotty, Bowman or jungle behind the bench. But think of it this way, you know, could you imagine what it must be like to, to be interviewing John Tortorella, right? And it'd be gone this fucking nuts. Man. Who we are here, although that guy strikes me as a guy that can really turn on the charm when he needs to have seen enough of him to know that when it comes time to be prickly. He's awesome at that. And that's his rep. We've seen it again. And again, but I've also seen him in moments where he was just extremely charming and likable. So he can turn it on when he needs to. But back to the poll on DJ Smith being hired by the sins. What do you think? I don't like the higher. I don't like the higher. I think they had to get a big ticket guy. I think the team is in dire need of. Like that, to get get the get the attention away from all the ownership stuff. So granted nice guy and all that stuff. I just don't like. I just don't think it's a very good idea. I think they should try to get someone with more experience. Yeah, that's me. Nobody knows for sure. And it's about the combination of the two. It's is right coach and high enough calibre of players, and then get some breaks after that. That's Stanley Cups are one. So there's nothing to say that, you know, a tried and true guy, who's coached six hundred games in the league is, is an automatic success with the thirty first place auto a senators either. So it's just all. It's all preference at this age. It's all I could say this though having sat down with DJ Smith on Friday for half an hour. I understand why the Ottawa Senators were impressed by him. They all would be, you know, they all would be, you know, they'd all be impressive in an interview, you know, I hope DJ Smith listens to this. Right. And then goes on to win fifteen of his first twenty games. And he can give me the finger and the reason I bring that up, which was hilarious. I think. Brooks, KEPCO course who won the PGA apparently, Brandel Chamblee didn't give them a shot. And of course, he shot twelve under for the first two rounds of I shot seven under. And then Brandel the next eight had come back on there. And Brando said I just feel like the guy gave me the finger for four and a half hour straight, you know how played it was. It was hilarious. So I was gonna say, I don't know if you're on social media today to see some of the all the basketball analyst, all saying after the raptors had fallen behind to nothing in the eastern final like just absolutely taking a spadeful of soil and dumping it on the raptors. They're done. They're done. And some calling the box, all the bucks, are actually gonna go on to win the whole thing talking heads. Don't know everything. Obviously. Right. Anyway, I I've got nothing against E J Smith. I don't know him. So, and I can only hope for the best for the team, but I think it's a big tall order. Well, it's pretty clear based on are Rb computing web poll today that the people that voted anyway are down with it with seven hundred one votes. And the finale of the poll is sixty eight percent. Yes, they like to hire thirty two percent. Say no. I lot of write in votes of I'm indifferent. I'm numb to the Ottawa Senators right now. But most people were kind of on board with it. So that's today's web poll for Rb computing. If your desktop notebook or phone or giving you trouble, I recommend going to see my friends at Rb computing for over twenty years. They provided high quality computer and phone repairs for the Ottawa region are computing dot com. One, oh six Menton place in balance corners, again, on Friday morning at a chance to sit down with a new sense head coach DJ Smith. And he was obviously pumped I can't be anymore excited. You know what? Yeah, it's been. It's been a, you know, a wild say thirty six hours for sure. I've waited a long time for this and ready. So, you know, it's great to, you know to get out and into talking about the team now. I look forward to talking to the players, this thing came together, what on Wednesday right? Maybe describe for us how it all came together with Pierre the agreement to come here, all of that. Well, peer was very honest with me through the process. You know, he, he would call and kind of give me an update, you know, it's going to be a couple of weeks. And then he sitting order to likely be the end of the month. You know, he said, I'm not gonna lie. I'm gonna interview, you know, couple more people. And, you know, so I was aware of the process of all, type, you know, always keep my eye on, you know, their team and watching more and more stuff. In case we had to talk again, and I wanted him to know that I knew this team but also how passionate I was about making young players better. And, and in the opportunity that lied ahead of me taking over. Team that finished thirty first national ugly excited me so much to be able to, you know want as a first time NHL head coach to get to get my chance to, to grow with these young guys. And, and to grow together that had to be impressive to the sense that you had gone to that level of homework like watching twenty twenty five games of the sends last season as you watched them were able to kinda diagnos, maybe some of the things that were going wrong for this team. Well, certainly, you know, I went through quite a bit. Analytics to, to see what the number said to start with. So I kind of knew what I was looking for. And then as you're going through the games, you're, you're seeing those a lot of those things backed up, whether it be some things on their penalty killer. Whether it be, you know, therefore, check ozone structure, whatever it may be. That was just marking one after another. And then you put them all together and then you go back and you watch him and, and you say to yourself, you know, these are some things that are easily fixable. These aren't talent related issues. This is work ethic, or this is a structure, and these are things that I believe I can implement immediately. So I see a chance for us to improve immediately, you know, talent in development of players is gonna come with time, but lack of structure will be on acceptable. When you look at this roster, maybe a word on what you like about it, and how close is it now as it lies to a DJ Smith type of team. Well, I'm going to have to get to guys. I mean I know the guys via tape. I don't know the personalities. I don't know how hard they can be pushed yet. I don't know which are going to find another gear when the going gets tough. Those are the guys that I want in those are the guys that are ultimately going to be the guys that stick around or the guys that can push through some versity aren't going to go away, and tough times are willing to play hard tough hockey, you know, and it doesn't mean hit or fight it means you know, being able to hold onto pox go to the net be willing to get crosscheck be willing to keep guys off to. These are things that are going to check the box. So, so we end up being the Saint Louis and Boston. Bruins that are that are playing for the Stanley Cup. Let's go back to twenty sixteen because a lot has been talked about in your your rival here, and that there was a lot of talk to the sends had asked before they hired Bouche it asked to speak with you in an interview setting. Maybe can you tell us do they let you know when that when that request has been made by another team. And if so, what was your reaction to kind of being blocked for head coaching job? Well, I was ecstatic that they asked, you know, at the time I can say now knowing what I know I wasn't ready at the time I would have thought I was ready I needed the four years to coach in the National Hockey League. And see what the league was about. One of my greatest mentors is Lula Morello. And and, and Liu said you're going to be ready in time. You're just not ready yet, and I trusted his advice. And, and he's never steered me wrong. And, you know, throughout this process, I've been contact with Lou and, and you know it was. His advice that I realized that, that was the best choice at that time, communicating with players in the NHL versus communicating with players in the HMO where you were extremely successful. Is there any difference? I mean is talking to a player the same in both leagues? Or do you have to treat in nature player any differently? I think ultimately if you treat people good and you give them trust. I believe they're going to give some back to you so juniors. Probably a little bit easier. I would say, because, you know, they're striving to get to this level guys that are at this level want. Don't wanna just be here. The good guys anyways, they wanna be the better in the middle guys wanna be the top dogs in the top dogs wanna be the best in the league. So my job's to push whoever that player person is to be one notch better. And if I can get ten or twenty percent of guys throughout our lineup. This team's gonna be better sooner or later, transitioning from extreme success in the OH L. And I know it's the NHL and that's where you wanna go next. So obviously that was the next thing in the career arc, but is it difficult just to go from being a head coach back to being an assistant coach what it was? It was difficult for me when you're used to. Making all the decisions and, you know you pour your heart and soul into something. And, and if it doesn't work, you know, it, your idea to, you know, have to live, by the word of someone else all the time, you know, and that's part, and that's your job is in assistant coach been in the system coach before, but certainly being a head coach, you know, it is not a lot more fun. But, you know, you get to live and die by your own sort, I guess by saying. So it was a bit of a transition. But if something I needed to do I need to learn the league I needed to learn the ins and outs of how to treat people in the NHL how the city's work, however thing works. I don't think you can run a franchise NB the head coach and the face of the group. If, if you don't know how everything works in that for years is what provided that for me the last couple of years and the standings bear this out defensive zone. Coverage has been a trouble spot for this team. Do you think being a former NHL defenseman yourself? Maybe gives you a leg up on some others because last year this was a coaching. Staff that didn't have a single defenseman on it. Well, I can tell you that as a head coach in Oshawa, and I know what people say, it's the OH L the only chosen many NHL, and I think are one hundred fifty six goals against Australia, is, is the lowest in the last at least ten years or so, in the gel, and it comes with a mindset, certainly, you have to have people pay the price and it comes in practice. You have to learn to play in your own zone. But in saying that if you plan the offense of longer, you can track pucks harder you don't have to play in your own zone. So certainly as an offensive. I'm gonna teach defenseman efface the puck and the teachers centers play low in their zone. We're gonna have a five-man mentality but what I would like to do is play more offense track more pucks, so we don't have to spend as much time inner zone. What was it like working with Mike Babcock, you know what he's intense? He's, he's an honest man. You know in his effort, every day the way he works. You know, he's he's just tireless grinder that wants. To be to the utmost prepared. So for me, it was imperative that, you know, I go through that process, especially prepare me for an interview to be prepared to all the things that you have to do to be a head coach and had I not done that I'm not so sure I'd have been as prepared for that interview. When you're considering this job, head coach of the Ottawa Senators, you know, you're aware the standings like everybody in the league is, but you also had a team that was not only having a tough time on the ice. But they were crisis off the ice from time to time as well. Did any of that give you pause for thought when you were considering this job, not for one second for me, I guess I always look at the glass half full rather than half empty? And I always think that, you know, if you go there, and you treat people right it'll change and it'll change for the better. So, you know, some people don't believe that theory. But I believe I'm here now and that's in the pasta and, and we can put that behind us in the best head of I've seen that when I went to Windsor, we went from. Lead last two, two memorial cups Ottawa went from low in the standings to winning World Cup and Tronto was dead last to where they are today. So I've been a part of three transitions. I know the mentality in the hard work that has to go into it, but I have no don't my mind we can do that here. This is probably way early in the game to ask this, but in Toronto, there was no captain, and there was lots of discussion about it. And auto weather is no, captain, and there will be lots of discussion moving forward about it. How important is a captain to you and, and to get one and what your timeline for putting in place, if it is important, well, in due time that certainly will happen and that'll be decision between me and Pierre and Eugene. But ultimately, that person has to prove in, they have to earn that right to be the captain and, you know, the team's going to need someone to lead them. But you also don't wanna put a young guy in a position where he has to answer all the questions every single day. You know, while we're on this journey, I'd rather be the guy to do that. And maybe a couple. Older guys assistant Coppins can can run some of that blow early. And then when it's time for them to take over the ready you don't wanna stunt their growth with too much pressure early. So all everything I can take that pressure off, but we'll find captain and time if you were to introduce yourself to some people today and describe yourself as a head coach. How would you describe yourself? I'm guy that's going to hold the players accountable. A guy that's going to make guys work hard guy that people will know that I'm intense when I'm also going to be a player's guy in a way that they're gonna know I trust them, but they're also going to have to do it a certain way players. Don't need a friend. They need a coach, but they also sometimes Pat on the back and I'll be there to do that. We're going to we're going to grow as group. And, and I think that my I say track record is I get to know people I, I call him second, and I found that with that recipe you, you tend to have a little more success. So you're gonna you're at a point now where you're obviously, you've got some guys in mind for your staff assistant coaches, and I know you're not related talk about that right now obviously, but are you a coach that, that has a hard time delegating to the other guys? Or do you kind of micromanage, if you will know? Absolutely not. I'm a we over me. And I'm open to any idea that will help this team win. And I don't need the credit certainly anything that's going to help us. Get better is outstanding. So I need the best people billable, the best guy to run the defense preferably defenseman that, that played in the league or that's coach defenseman that really knows the position, I need a power play guy. That's really good. So I can allow them just to do their job. And I can kind of see it and, and do the thing that I need to do. The most is a connection with these players and get to know them and takes a lot of time. So the guys that we're going to bring in have to be quality people and quality coaches that can stand on their own feet. The sense I get from you, as the you know, and you said as much the rugged game. Think of the your position, the defense and the sends right now have three guys that I think within a couple years are going to be unbelievably Thomas. Body's already that he's a great pot mover. You've got brannstrom and you've got will land in like these elite puck movers. I think in a couple of years, are you excited about kind of getting a hold of those guys and teaching them to be well rounded guys one hundred percent if you're gonna win you have to play the fence. So you can't just be racing around all around the ice. So, you know, the best part is in the hardest part is the fine guys I can move skates. They've got that. Now they have to learn to play defense. And if you look at a guy like Scott Niemeyer when he was young and, and again, I go back to remember when I when I dealt with Lou, and in, in some of the troubles, eight went through a Scott when he was young in on the end they had a dial back a little bit. And Scott was a better player. So we got twenty points, but the team was winning. And, and so, you know that reminds me of these guys. So maybe they're going to get a few points here and there, but the team's gonna win and they're going to. Learn to play in all situations. Not just race around the ring. So I you know you wanna find a partner for each guy and, and guys that can be reliable with them, and that's going to be a nice mix, but it's a great starting point. Let's finish up today DJ by talking a little bit about the fan because the fan and you've met some, I'm sure already know there's a passionate fan base here, they want this team to be great, if instead of me being across from you, there's a guy who's considering a season ticket he wants to support the team. What would you tell that fan? But what they can expect in the next three years with DJ Smith as the head coach. What would you say to them at this stage of the game? It's easy for me to say, trust me, you don't know me, no one's going to trust someone. They don't know what I would say is go back and look at my prior work, and how I've done everything in my career to try and make other people better. It's not about me. It's about making a group better and. I believe I've successfully done that in every place that I've gone. I'm going to do that here. Trust the process. It's not going to be a quick fix but we're gonna do this thing, right? And I didn't come here to give them a bunch of slogans and, and say a bunch of things so that people come in and watch us for week or a month. Instead, always done a good job. I'm here to, to try and turn this franchise around and to be the, the guy who does it and wholeheartedly. I believe that. And I'm gonna get these kids to fall. Great man, the good free, she it, it's gonna take time but we'll get her done. So again, there's the chat had with DJ Smith the new sense head coach and that was just the hockey portion of the interview we did a bigger more wide ranging interview about DJ Smith is background is life away from the game. And just in finding it we'll makes him tick, and you can read that much bigger interview coming up in the next issue of faces magazine.

The judy garland museum in the small town of grand rapids minnesota. All she said was they're gone. They're gone welcome to no place like home. A documentary podcast series that investigates the mysterious heist of the ruby slippers. Please listen and follow. No place like home presentation of c. Thirteen originals occasions thirteenth studio available now on odyssey apple podcasts. And wherever you get your podcasts. These are the final seconds of him. They hold on to that. You're die time and everything rides on one shot but it isn't going to be that this is down to live tropical fruit. One shot to take you to the top one win. This is clinched basketball. That's the nba playoffs game. And we're cody alive for the built ford tough studio vulnera- size in gregg giannotti. It's boomer and geo on the fan simulcasts across the country on. Cbs sports network. And wherever you are on the aussie app go wednesday morning. Soupy out there today. Say foggy humid summer. Cloudy sort of malays as cbs. Sports network is put up a picture of what the city looks like right now. My goodness been cloudy day after. Cloudy dave to cloudy day. But i think we're gonna see some sunshine a little bit later today and throughout the weekend. Yeah the all star game last night. The only thing that anybody cared about with the all star game it seemed like was how much they hated the uniforms. So just another one of those things. Where a story bigger than the game baseball takes over baseball. What stephen a smith said about shohei ohtani more interesting to people than actually shohei otani and we get ready for a second half with the mets and yankees to see where they end up. We'll have some fun today because there's a lot going on when there's not a lot going on in sports we tend to laugh a lot. Good morning boomer. our you go. There is a lot going on. And it's and it's unbelievable that it's already here and it's hard for me to eat them fathom. Where has the year gone. Where has the year gone. where has the year gone. we are in july. it is july fourteenth. yeah thousand and twenty one. that's right so where have we been for year. And how fast as gone and for me for you for me. My granddaughter turns one year. My goodness relations is one years old today. That is amazing. Believe that i did not know. I still camp believe it. I still can't believe that it's been a year. I thought she was three months old. That winning right. I think she was close to a year. So i just i just wanted to start out by saying happy birthday to my beautiful daughter wonderful and That i cannot believe that it's been a year and all the things that have happened in the last year incredible. Yeah there's been a lot of stuff. Both good and bad for our show is but a lot of good. Oh without a doubt and tremendous good. It's been other shows around here. Not so good but for us. It's been it's ridiculous absolutely spectacular. I but i was just thinking about that this morning. Coming in like it's been the here. Yeah and it's almost like it's been a blur. I isn't that the theory of relativity is it that the whole thing that the older isaac newton thing. well i thought it was albert einstein or is it connectivity. That's i'm right on. Einstein ups okay so the theory of relativity. Is that the older you get right at the time that you experience is seems shorter to you because you're now on the back nine. No no applying into a larger samples of psychological phenomena. It's not the theory of relativity. Okay stein did say that. He said as you get older. He proved that time in people's minds passes faster because it's all relatives. That's why i thought it was a theory of relativity. That's not you're looking at me like a crazy person. I'm telling you that. Einstein said this. I remember reading about this. I will bet i will wager. That einstein said something like that when you travel close to the speed of light Then time moves slower for you and if you travelled out of the speed of light came back then everybody knew would be debt. Okay all right yeah. That's not what i'm talking about. What i'm talking about is when i think boomer is experiencing bright is that time is flying. It has as he's getting every year he gets older. That's all right. That's what i'm trying to say. So this this year of winnie. As compared to the first year of goner in sydney is a feels a lot faster than it does feel past. But then again you know we've dealt with a lot of stuff and being born in the middle of a pandemic and the twenty twenty year and everything that went on there but just to think that her hockey team has been in like two eastern conference finals and she wasn't even a year old yet. I mean i don't know what the hell my hockey teams going back. But she's already experienced to eastern conference finals. sure have through the pandemic. dad's played like a every year he plays. It seems like he's in the play offs. For god's sake so what's the big party has got to be a big party. I was just one year old best deal birthday party today. Best deal i think. That's what's the best deal i. Sydney said something about steel day. Your best deal revolution and the french revolution. She's having a french revolution themed party. Whatever that is good. Bring those bullets the same colors the french flag you go you can bring those nominee operas but anyway it's it's an hour and a half party you know 'cause she's gotta get gotta get the that's it just an hour and a half. Yeah i mean that's that's about. It seems like it's about it. Yeah yeah. I was at a one year old birthday party about a month ago. How long did it last. It was a long time four hours. Not it's not going to be a four hour party now. They had a bouncy castle. Not happen the size of their backyard. No that's not happening. It was not for the one year old. Yeah right but when you invite all the kids you gotta give them something to do. Yeah you know it's gonna be sticky and hot and all the stuff. So i think they're going to try to be relatively quick and take some nice pictures. Have some good memories and then i can go play hockey. You have the right off. The one year old birthday party is a is a big deal. I of course it's a big deal one hundred percent. It's a big deal. What's the next big deal birthday party for a kid because it's not too. I mean five ten. What's the next big one. Twenty-one i i kind of remember them all being big. Yeah i know And it's really up to the parents to determine you know how big they wanna make it and you know i think one is huge and then probably i would think five and ten and sixteen and twenty one. Sixteen yes sixteen. Big one is like the driving thing. Yeah that's when i get the turn sixteen and sixteen one of those things that like parents is like when you turn sixteen. I'll let you do that right. So it's Yeah it's been but but think about everything that's gone on mean sports wise just a last. Please don't have everything awesome. Like i was trying to kind of heart. Metalized all of it and it's amazing. All the things happened in one county your joy fourteen. Th of july fourteenth everything was condensed. It was crazy it was it was coming at us fast and furious as between march and you would say july. We really didn't have much. That's right we had some golf. We had some nasty car I think there was some. You have see fight islands stuff. There was that right and then all of a sudden everything came back and we had all at once and then. Finally i think by this year later this year late this year you get the nhl in the nba on a regular schedule. The nfl really was on a regular schedule. Most of the year last year. The at a couple of hiccups in air and things that happen but still pretty good and major league baseball. This year has been on a regular schedule. Show have all four major team sports by the end of this year being back on a regular schedule which is great. Yeah and we're right in the middle of now. A baseball season which questions loom as to which. What are these local teams going to at the trade deadline. And how are they going to try to improve the team. Could you see in some way shape or form brian cashman. Just you know recognize that. He still has to stay competitive because his fan base is going to demand it and he's going to have to look at his roster and say okay. These are the pieces that i i'm going to have the trade. I'm going to be able to replace. So let's say they go after trevor story from the colorado rotten because i think a lot of teams are probably going to try to go after him he wants to be a free agent wants to leave their Their their general managers talking about you know when we're not in a rush to trade them we don't have to trade them. We can get a compensatory. Pick for him if we lose them next year. All these different things but depending on who is going to be. I guess the most frantic in their search for a difference maker because he would definitely be a difference maker. you would then see that glacier towards we'd probably packaged in san out somehow someway you have to look at. What whatever they have in the minors. I suck right now. So they they would. Have i think that if they come out of this thing. Let's say they lose three games to the red sox suck right now yeah well. They've got eight of their next ten against it. So i look at it. More out of those eight okay. So you'll lose six out of those eight then then then. You're blown halloween yourself. I i think you have to blow it up. But i mean they win six out of eight depending on how you win those games. No i think depending. I think you just if you win. Six eight against the red sox the to against the phillies that jammed in between the two four game series. But i mean if you if you win six at of the red sox against the red sox you split the games against philadelphia then yeah i mean that's sit around and that's what if the opposite. Then yeah. I think you've got to sell. I think isn't like everything in these next ten games i would say yes and i would also say that if we get the competitive yankees that we saw in houston ahead. A one player mountain that had a a shad green meltdown. But if we see that that team that showed up in those games and let's say they win six out of eight as opposed to losing six out of eight. You know now. All of a sudden then. I think if you're brian cashman you're really looking to tweak and get something going here trying to figure out exactly you know the players that have trevor story would be the player. He would definitely be the player. Then you'd have to figure out what you're gonna be doing with labor torres. Is there a market out there for him and you know should he be a second baseman. As opposed to shortstop like a million questions like that that have to be answered. That will be answered relatively quickly here. Yeah i just wonder how for the yankees have to fall out of that wild card because it division is just right now not looking great as we know so i mean how many yeah would would certainly help in a major way. By how many games do you have to fall out of that. Wild card for brian. Cashman to say we gotta sell. We gotta do something different. Here i'm also when you're talking about potential changes at the end of the years of first time in a very long time we've talked about. Brian cashman maybe not being the general manager of the yankees. Aaron boone of course has been feels like. He's been on the hot seat the entire year. Does brian cashman at that point. Say i'm gonna sell and then pumped the rest of the season You know aaron boone's contract is up at the end of this year. Yeah yeah that into the interesting column as well. Yes so. I mean you're going to get a a ten game stretch. That's going to say a lot. About what the rest of the season is going to be for the yankees. I just wonder i. I don't know if there is a situation in which the yankees are gonna want to sell in who they even selling like. Think about it. You would think that aroldis chapman we one of those guys that you would sell. But who wants him right now. Nobody a glare tour is still a young player. I mean i guess you could say you trading labor toward you do not trade aaron judge. We've had this discussion. You giancarlo stanton's nobody's taken him. Who is the guy who. Who are the people that you sal. So it's it's not that easy. It's a very because nobody thought that the yankees are being situation at the trade deadline. Be selling off pieces right and yeah you know so july. Thirty first is the trade deadline And the yankees have thirteen games. Obviously the four that you said against the eightieth red sox the to against other fillies but they also have three against tampa in this little thirteen game. Oh so tampa. After those red sox phillies red sox than tampa yes and then the trade deadline and then the trade deadline so the trade deadline's the thirty first and last game against tampa in this little Y thirteen game. Little run in their in their Schedule ends on july twenty okay. It's even more severe. Yes than i thought right so you have you have eleven of those thirteen are in your division against teams. That are in front of you. And i i i you gotta believe that this thirteen game little run here will determine because it comes right up against the detroit deadline. This is this is it. This is their season. Yeah you'd think of course it is. This is not just one pitch one game at a time. This got thirteen games to figure it out. We suck right now. Yes you do. And if they i mean i just can't imagine that they approach that trade deadline even if they have in those thirteen games worst case scenario they go three intent that they're blowing the team up. You know what i'm saying. There were six and forty three four and a half games out of the top wildcard spot. They're gonna blow the team up like what would blow the team. I've long team up with would be trading. Aaron judge would definitely be blowing the team trading gary sanchez torres torres. Though i to me those three guys that you would end up in some sort of trade package to bring somebody else in here but then again. If you're if you're thinking about trevor story as your shortstop at the future how much you paying him in a new contract. Sure i mean. And then you add the stan contract and then you had the garrett cole contract is a trevor story hypothetical analytics gurus on their game and they better get their act together. Figure out where you can find that you know that cheap cheap player that The mike top men's and the fords of the world save your seasons. Yeah like the san francisco giants when they went out and talk me whatever. But you know you know what's amazing in baseball is that you see these teams and like you'd never expect. I don't think anybody expected. The red sox were the giants to be where they are. No i'm you go back and you look at all the preseason prognostications and there's nobody that had either one of those teams where they are right now nobody and then all of a sudden something happens. They find their games. They win certain games last year they would have lost and are they all that much different than they were last year or they just like in a role right now where they go out and they expect to win baseball games guy teams like the yankees are just scuffling along. Yeah and last year was a very strange year for everybody. So i mean i don't know if you want just toss it out completely but it was a very weird year was less than half of a season. Maybe it's alex. Cora maybe maybe him being back then came kappler out there. The great gabe kappler with his coconut oil spreading it on the entire clubhouse and save go. It really is amazing when you think about it and you think about those two teams and where they were and where they are right now. It gives you hope but but you're team sucks. San francisco's in a division and of course with the giants now the other the other looming question over major league baseball is going to be whether or not we're going to see the return of trevor bauer. Yeah that's a forty billion dollar pitcher. That's basically been sat down and said you're not playing we figure out what's going on here and for all you baseball. Purists out there that have had the the ulcers over some of these new rules rob manfred said yesterday that the seven inning doubleheaders are probably not going to stick around the runner on second base is probably not gonna stick around. They're not going to be around and the other thing. They have to get rid of his the three inning or the three batteries for the pictures. Yeah i don't hear people complaining about that as much and also the shift they're gonna look into eliminating shifts all the people out there that problems with that the look into all of those things but next year there's gonna be a work stoppage so none of it matters right. It doesn't it Expire after this year. The cbi so there'll be a work stoppage strike and we'll talk about that and people hate baseball and take a major. You know it's amazing. I just walked my word. I don't think people like francisco endure garrett cole. You only way it's a work. Stoppage is if the owner stop it. I i don't see the players striking. I can say that i do not see the players striking. There's hey hey each other. I i understand that but the players also hate each other as as evidenced by getting the spider attack them. Yeah josh donaldson of the world's shore. I wonder if he's available. I do they is. I believe is available. Well he'd be a good met. I agree oh yeah that would be tremendous. it's the morning show with boomer esiason in gregg giannotti boomer and geo friday boomer and geo on the fan and cbs sports network so the one year old birthday cake for winnie. Going to be best deal themed is. That would be very insane. Well i know that when he technically hasn't had any cake or any sugar or anything and i think today's the first day of same thing with sabrina. Yeah the first time she had it. Well you remember okay. So it wasn't that long. It's like a big deal. It's a huge deal. But you gotta make sure. They don't go berserk for no pace sydney. He's got this thing on lockdown she. she's been unbelievable with winnie and has had her on a special diet scatter sleeping than a special routine the whole thing. That's what rolling fast. She's got the winning on happy of course only time when he cries which takes a bath a little bit because she doesn't like the water and rise won't you comes out of that bass. She's from giggle and laugh at trying. This not better than a happy so she guests have a little cake today for the first time for the first time. Welcome to the good stuff winning. I tried to get her. You know. I took a car bell but didn't work out. I got slapped around. Said no i have to take her by myself. Yes can not take the mother with me. Yeah well the grandparents are always the ones who give the kids the bad stuff. That's the thing the ever bad stuff doesn't make sense does it. But you know what. I'm saying not to be healthy stuck your parents. Well yeah and also louise by author is she's always hiding pastries and then we see sabrina eating stuff that i would. I've never seen in my life in our house like there's a ding dong rapper in the garbage. I'm like ding dongs stuff. You don't can doughnuts every day. Show up at the house. I cannot wait to take her to carville. Full-on full-on yeah. I figure it's a couple years away. I think the full-on car relics hundred percent. You gotta share that as boom pa. Jerry you're up at midnight last night. Listening to wfan was why because joseph's team had a game that didn't start to almost eight thirty all driving back in the car and you had it on Something no i was listening to. Sal yeah oh you couldn't sleep so you put the radio on a did. Did you put the radio on to try to go to sleep. I was trying everything but sales entertaining and turn it off.

But i got a text message from somebody that said maggie just thanked caroline distracts ski at the end of the show because she was a guest on the program So i don't know now. She's on there. They gotta talk about the face. Sittings is that why she was on. I saw the description under the podcast has talk about her. Mlb all-star experiences so who knows she works. we'll be network. yes. I don't know she doesn't know she works for some sl. Nope no bleacher report. Yes okay an off shoot of bleacher. Report is an offshoot of bleacher. Report act was that called creature.

Got denver's gonna you know have drew lock. Teddy bridgewater be their quarterback. And at this point you can know what your plan is and you would think. But if you could get aaron rodgers and think you'd go get rogers that was manning on mlb network. Yesterday's he had his imprint. All over this of course being in denver Yesterday and for the weekend and for the all star game various go out there and I would figure that john elway would have been all over the place he might have been there. I didn't see him on anything though. I guess i guess peyton moved out there when he took the job with the broncos. Okay very good. I want to get these a couple of calls before we break. Anonymous is up in connecticut. Hello anonymous guys doing. What's up man. I wanna let you got failed my driver's test to and the first time and i've never told anyone about it. Really you're embarrassed by the fact that you You didn't pass. Obviously it was the worst day of my life. I'm definitely embarrassed about it. Yeah but i'm glad you came through with us. You want to tell us who you are. I can't just in case one of my friends are listening. But i think this is part of. This is part of the cleansing. You know you got. You gotta tell us who you are. You'll never know. Yeah i know that embarrassed but you but you said that you felt that you'd never problem with that. Well i did. Actually it felt weird saints percents publicly. It was. It was the first time i've ever said it publicly it. It's still right now. It just it feels strange so like like anonymous you are. You've been hiding this all your have. Yes indeed. I have been the only people who knew were my parents and then i just. I told all my friends i said. Did i did. Because i told i was so confident was gonna pay. Everybody passes it. I told him. I was like i'll be driving the next day and then i failed it and i said yeah. They cancelled my test though so pissed so they said it for like next month and you finally came to did. I just finally told this morning. See this is why. I had never heard of anybody. Failing the drivers because we're gonna lie. Yeah because nobody's ever told me that. They failed the drummer of course and they probably had failed drivers and we are all hiding that secret. Andrew in wapping. here's falls. hello andrew. What's up guys. I might have been the only one yesterday that heard the interview with. Jj sister first of all before. That moose was telling a story about. When he was a gas station clerk with the wanian man drove up to him and offered him his sister most declined but then they had the interview and first of all. She was talking about pete alonso. He wanted the own run derby. Yeah and her peter. Lonzo and alonzo fiance. They all went out to a bar afterwards. Three of them. I guess alonzo still and his chain on and they were drinking tequila and she did address george. She had a one on one interview with him. But it was like fun stuff like what kind of music they play in the clubhouse stuff like that so there was no sitting on faces. Discuss none at all. Not one time was reference not in her personal interview with george and not in the interview between moose in maggie and jj sister not mentioned. Want an andrew as a listener to wfan while you were listening to this. Were you expecting a sit on your face referenced during this interview well i had they don 'cause Honestly i finished listening to a podcast. And then i was like eight minutes from my house so i didn't want to start another one. I like summer. Mary concern i understand. No but i sweet spot where it's like. I don't wanna get into law me just understand injury. Yes i've been in the same situation loose with the clerk man and this guy he was like with the wanian and went the waiting high roller. Hey do you want to take out my sister. And moose was was like yeah. He's fifteen years old and he's like Why would anybody picked most to go out with because he apparently he has strong with the wanian features driver recognized. He wanted to set him up with the sister. A hey thanks man. Yeah yeah sting. A really interesting. Hagia coal hoffman. He's talking to him right. Okay all right. We'll talk to him next. We'll talk to offman next all we do have to give away. Some pete. Hoffman is the producer of that show. And i really wanna know whose idea was to put on jayjay sister in not ask about sit on your face. It's the morning show with boomer. Esiason and gregg giannotti bloomer in jio boomer and geo on fan and cbs sports network. Okay we're trying to get to the bottom of something so we were introduced to john. Strip st Jj after doc. His sister on twitter instagram. Because she would ask certain yankee players to sit on her you could fit on so yesterday. I got a text message from somebody that says. Jj sister was just on with moose and maggie. And i said all. I that's really interesting. Like i guess that they asked her about the whole. Sit on my face situation and then we find out that they didn't ask anything about the sit on my face. I mean i mean. That's like having larry david on and not asking about curb your enthusiasm. I just don't understand why you wouldn't ask those questions. So we've gone to the pronin that program well Pete hoffman guys running the program. And as you've said several times. Pete likes to shoehorn himself into the radio program and you crowbars. My wordy crowbars himself into certain segments and pete joins us now. We woke up for this a good morning. Pete how you feel a man good. By the way. I'm late. Because i was getting into an argument with my wife. If if your wife ever asks about her highlights how they came out and just don't stay strong. I guess it's a bit of knowledge. Okay too strong. Don't sell it. Say he don't say strong to the white. Okay very good all right so a peach trying to deflect already have all right pizza you produce the show yesterday. Yes yeah that was great. Show fantastic filling in for carmen roberts. Okay so who was it. Your decision mussa's decision maggie's decision to have carolina's strengths on the program. It was a group decision. We solve all the pictures. She was tweeting. Now who's hanging out with with stanton saying i would judge and alonzo wadi. She's going up at the drinks with the math. Or it's like i wanna know. What type of beer. Pete alonso drake so you said you will. You thought that it would be a good idea to put her on group discussion. We kind of all talked about it and we all at the same time like hey she just come on someone in this group. Discussion pitches the idea to put her on. Like so like me. Al and boomer talking about aghast and you did you see this thing. One of us has to say well. Should we put them on. So who is the person that said should we put her on opt. I'll take it head you'll take the hinder was a you. Hit the take. You wanted to have a guest on or not. I did but i think i think maybe moves. Maybe maybe originally br threw it out there and i just went along with his most. Sorry we got okay very good so moose said let's put her on now. Did you guys discuss asking her about her. Sit on my face stuff. Of course we did you. Have you discussed it now. What i was rolled on. Why was the decision made not to ask her about the sit on my face stuff because in discussions off air with caroline she was very Deflected she asked multiple times. Please don't bring that up. She mentioned hasn't come on. I'm sorry you gotta be. You gotta be tougher than what the hell are you guys doing feed you. Tell me you've been around sports. Talk radio you got a popular. Mma podcast you seem to know what's what so this is a this is somebody who goes on social media puts all of this out there themselves and then when it gets broadcast to a larger platform then wants to run and hide with it. And that's probably the only interesting thing that she's got going on and then she says she doesn't want to talk about that and you still put her on talked about. We start talking about the red sox video with the kids. That was fun right good. Yeah but that wasn't what it was perceived to be an initially it was perceived that karen was. You know karen a stereotype for middle aged white woman screaming at you know ten year. Old about the yankees red sox. Which would actuality wasn't what it was so she wanted to clear that up. I'm sure because that was supposedly good natured listed. I know we wanted. We wanted to pressure. We not pressure but we did want to bring it up. I know we had maggie. Really want ask but i kept on saying we can't do it because caroline over and over and over half i felt bad. So that's on your right. That's definitely maggie. Wanted to ask about the sit on my face stop and you said no well originally we were all into like. That's a great idea. And then when she came back so heavy that was mu that was kind of like i just she just really wanna stay away from it and did that point. Did you say to yourself that. Maybe we won't put her on. Because that's the most interesting thing that's going on here. I thought she was still good anyway. I thought she was fine fun. I didn't listen to the thing. And i won't now because you didn't talk about sit on my face. That's the only thing that's interesting. See pete. don't you understand. I mean you're a consumer of media hanging out with pete alonso. she's burke who cares if she's hanging out with. Pete lonzo really interesting story that she asked pete alonso to sit on our face. That's the question is the question that is the question pete. Not what. I d eighteen alonzo. Drake it's was the the asked her face that's the question come on you're smarter than this just sharper than this often. I the war. I know you are. I know you are but you sorry. Peers right exactly to respect. That was part of it like i. It's a little bit risque and refilling in on the afternoons we have a new program director. And let's play. It safe was one of those things. Timeout let me ask you this question. Let's say carton. Had roberts were doing the show and she came on as a guest. What do you think the questions would be the right okay. Same thing here. Same thing here. But she wouldn't go on those two shows. That's the thing because there were no sit on my face question okay. Do you want me to booker for you. Guys won't come on here absolutely. Not if she's telling you what vehemently that she does not want any sit on my face questions. There's no way she's coming on here or with the alvin she send you an email or something about this chernoff. Ice mark chernow is night. Did not get that email. But it's still she's still tweets the the an acronym is that what is the hashtag. Yeah she'll still tag. And i keep get suckered into her videos now because she had video out at all star weekend where a rod and all them walked past there and she was walking past there. She didn't yell anything at them. She didn't ask that question. At least she's getting you. You're stuff though right now but that only works a couple of times when there's no more questions i'm out right. The only thing we're interested in is the sit on my face. Gimmick it is a fun game to break through in this business. She broke furlan now. She's riding from and then asking us to like pull down. Our content is. That was the other thing like we had to. The moment of the day had to get ripped. I remember. she worked here. But i didn't have any idea what she was doing. Until you guys started playing this stuff so yeah she broke through. Then pete hoffman and his crew. Didn't even ask about it hells. That all about was Pete how was dove during this whole thing. Was he on the on board with the sit on my face questions or not you no he. He doesn't really take part knows no. He's not no content decisions from dove kramer. More about what. What type of cereal. He's eating the cereal. of course. of course those are the things that he is interested in. What is he going with these days. Is it a checks type of thing. I remember he had special k and he brought him. Reese's puffs kenya last week and she had reese's puffs suffered. Wfan all right. Who do you have on today. Do you have a guest list today. Half brian scale brady brandel chamblee. And maybe albert breyer. Okay all right. Yeah the alpern caroline. Yeah no albert breer. Seems like a boring guy hoffman. Don't don't ask. Brian scholar bring about basketball when he's on because no you don't do any of that. Youth albert brewers interesting to you off. Go good come on all right. Who is that you wanted to put him on. Are you putting on to kill time. No we don't kill her we. It's a five hour show. You normally do a four hour show you put on albert breyer in the middle of nothing going on doing it to kill time. I don't think we don't think you coming on today. But he's po possibly okay now now now probably not scallop. Breen still doing that. Terrible podcast and nobody paid attention to for odyssey scallon pounds. Yeah he's still doing every week. Whereas where can you find the auto. He's the odyssey insider and they wanna see insider but he's he's doing that scallon pals podcast I don't think so he's not doing that. Is you still get paid the same salary as he was getting paid for this gal pals policy it'd be the insider because they have under contract and they gotta make them do something right now. Okay all right very good. So did they ask you to put him on his shows. Sure they ask so they. Somebody asked you to put him on your brian guests. Everybody's a good guess to you. There's a there's a mime out there. That's a good guest in your eyes for christ sakes. He's figured he was going to be on in the afternoon. All i guess they have they are doing the afternoons traditions partner. Robert show they have a lot of guests every time i can put it on. The guest is a guest on right exactly in the in the half lunch. You do the half lunch. it's outcome dinner now. We go out to dinner with off actually do like that segment. Because he does recap what goes on on the radio station which is good. I think yeah which shows its foreign. We're supposed to have fun. One hundred percent ski about sitting on faces and players everything else. Geez that's why it's going to be like my like you'll fall asleep on air moment g. No no no. It's not but i mean if we didn't like we wouldn't be talking to you. I've been the end of your route. Just be trashing you behind your back. I mean that's what we'd be doing but didn't like you want to give you an opportunity to respond. you've done an okay job with done an okay job responding. I didn't like everyone of your answers. I listen i'm trying to be you know politically correct. There you go. I stay away. That could be a little bit. You're straddling the line. I understand what you're doing but you also understand who you're talking to. You're talking to now. The grand poobah grand poobah has been through. You know the war's here at wfan and now basically you know sits in judgment of everybody is yeah my my war. Steve somers on overnight. So now i know we both worked for steve and they were very much wars. Although i enjoyed working with stevie didn't hate me as much as he hated all the rest of you guys for wherever he's heard all right very good off you did it. You did a decent job in a tough spot so You coming in what time you coming in today. Around ten thirty eleven all right. We'll see there. You go the the highest guy poor guy. He gets thrust into this thing and is that really his fault. You believe. it's his fault if he did not object to the we can't ask her about sit on my face when she's on then he is part of the problem. Yes then it is these part of the pro. I don't know if it's solely on his. But he was the one who had the conversation with her off the air. She was adamant about the no. Sit on my face talk. Then at that point he's got to say oh it's too bad right. They'll take care. Hope you have a great. Get ahead of jose canseco hangup moment. Yeah right but apparently maggie did want to ask about somebody else. Hang up on us to hank haney. Maybe hank haney that did not go well and hung up on us. The the caddy. Yeah well you know there because he made all the money off tiger woods and he wrote a book tiger woods. Yeah and he objected to some of the question. Yeah i mean what is what the people these days. I mean right something. You really need to be asked about it and why you wrote it hang up. I mean what is this. Like some skies. If you're going to be attacking me on this book that's the absolute truth. I'll hang up when you right now. So you start respecting me back goodbye. Goodbye no bunk right exactly. Yeah no of course. No naturally i mean put. Why do people do this. Where they they put something out there right but then if people don't react to it in the exact way that they want to then they tell you you can ask questions about. I don't know what you would if you especially if you're writing a book and in that book your attacking people. You have to imagine that the questions that are going to be asked as to you are going to be wire you tacking people in old by the way on top of that if you go on and address those things and you have. These spirited interviews. That's probably going to sell some more books as opposed to hanging up like a bitch. That's not going to sell any books right. Oh that's true. Boomer do remember. This is becca story. Neil sadaqa doing on this radio program telling him boomer assizes or no precision yeah. I'm a serious musician here and just try to bring a little bit.

"Wilbon vs The Cicadas"

The Tony Kornheiser Show

1:07:50 hr | 5 months ago

"Wilbon vs The Cicadas"

"Previously on the tony kornheiser show but essential quality is the son of sire tappan. Who has been kind of deleting siren america for a number of years and he's already sired three winners of the belmont. No distance has god's those mile and a half jeans he's got a top trader in grad cox So that's my pick. The tony kornheiser show is on now and there's really no point in me talking for a while as long as we have the king of the world andy buyer with us. That's two out of three. And i know you didn't love essential quality in in the kentucky derby and ran away from him when you made the right pick with medina spirit but how did you feel about this horse as you watched and that was the last quarter was so great. I love watching it. How did you feel as the race unfolded well. Every he was the favourite so i was not emotionally invested or financially invested. As i was the derby. I watched this as a fan and You know. I don't think people realize most people in racing seem to realize yet how terrific this belmont was The these In the top. Two horses both ran tremendous races. The the the beyer speed figure For this race of one hundred nine which was the best in the belmont since two thousand three These these The top two horses. both ran faster in our estimation than the triple crown winners american phero And justify did in any of their three triple crown wins. That's how good it was so. Yeah i was watching it. I loved it. Just love watching latino race. I i've said this many times before. I think the nbc production the hour hour and a half before. The belmont is brilliantly conceived. they go from person to person to tape to live. It's just really well done in the race. Set a beautifully. It was a gorgeous day the last quarter. These two horses are head to head. And i know this is gonna sound stupid andy but because essential quality is a big gray horse. You always know when he's making a move right. And i'm assuming i'm assuming that when when it was a two-horse race you had a certain amount of confidence in essential quality. Yeah but the other horse wasn't giving up Hot rod charlie a fighter But i think this you know after this race proved to be so good You can go back and look at the triple crown and reexamined it and my my conclusion is that although i gave myself a lot of credit for for for picking the twelve to one derby winner With the benefit of hindsight i was lucky The the this race showed how good essential quality is and in in the in the derby He he was part wide almost all the way around the track Well Well my horse medina's spirit was on the near the rail saving grand and the post race dade show that essential quality traveled like sixty feet farther than Medina spirited which is about six legs. I think stats like that can sometimes be Misleading but in fact A central quality did improve by about six links. It in the belmont. And so i looked back at you know at my intellectual triumph. Picking medina spirit. I was plenty. Lucky if if essential quality hadn't had that trump tough trip I mean he he would have won. The derby. Medina spirit would have lost And now flash forward to the belmont and the way it was run the Hot red charlie's best previous rays of his life was one where he had gone to the front and fought to the you know fought for the lead all the way that was in the louisiana derby really gutsy race so the trainer decided well. We're we're gonna do that. And so he would when the gate opened he he blasted out And another horse in the race had the same idea. Rock your world and the two of them ran a the first quarter mile In various at a pace that was breathtaking. We remember secretary at leading all the way in the belmont they were in much faster. The first quarter mile than secretariat and meanwhile essential quality was kind of sitting. You know you're with stocking the lead leading bad each others heads in and You know and and then he when he made his move Hot rod. Charlie should have been ready to fold but hot rod. Charlie just kept fighting back and He lost by link. But i mean it was a terrific effort and i think most i think most handicappers would look at this race and say Hot rod charlie gave the better performance. i mean they were both very good but he. He really earned the plus for effort and in this race so if if the race had ridden run more truly all the derby races had been I'm sorry the triple crown races had been running the different way. I would have had my usual Triple crown record of going over three a two. We got to for three. And i'll get you out of here on this so many people of course emailed us thanking you for your and they bet with you. Did you bet this source alone or did you bet it in combination into you have a great this one There were no exact. Paid fifteen dollars for two so there was no. There was no great money to be made. I bet a trifle i You know the the derby was my race this year. Andy thanks so much we appreciate it. I'm glad you want thank you. Andy andy buyer boys and girls. Two out of three two out of three is pretty good. And he's right. He usually gets nothing right on the triple crown. But it's always a pleasure to have him. Michael is here back from his trip. Michael went to south carolina. I went to delaware for a couple of days. Anything extraordinary happened that you wanna talk about. Well this is our first trip through the airport and it was not as terrifying to sort of do the whole mass cup get get in line. Get on the plane. The boys were wonderful. Both lights a little scary for walker because he used to love sitting at the airport watching all of the trucks and all of the loading unloading all the buzzing around and was nervously shaken. Just sort of walking through all those people but you know. It was very comforting. I told you before we went on. It's okay to fly again and that's a really big turning point one big piece of one big piece of luggage though. Didn't make the return flight which meant that. I stayed up very late last night. Just nervously waiting to get that email from a certain airlines that my golf clubs had actually been identified found and not just laying out on the tarmac in savannah. Georgia bacon where you got them. Glad you will get and don't have them yet. They'll deliver them. I played golf a few times. I am now a really bad golfer. i can't break ninety five or you've always been really bad golf. I used to. I used to break ninety every once in a while. now. I can't even break ninety five. Which is bad speaking of golf. We're not going to get to this. Might get to a little bit wilpon because he cares lexi thompson. What gagged yesterday. She's minus eight with a four shot. Lead making the turn in. Us women's open and gives back five shots on the back. This is what happens at limbaugh. I've shot so go back to the first toll. She has about what eight feet for eagle. Yeah barely barely misses barely. Hit the putter face though. She was not a good hotter. Brandel chamblee doing our when they went after. And i know you have to. That's part of the job but shambley went after her in the and live from the us. Open i'm not saying he's wrong either because the the women who were on with him said yes. Nobody sees such a talent with every other facet of for game and he think there's technology out there that can help you with this. She almost missed the ball. But how about the playoff. The playoff was wonderful. The playoff was wonderful to watch. I was in a very bad mood because of the washington. Nationals 'cause they stink beyond words. Let's be honest about this. The hitting coach should be fired and the pitching coach should be fired. You bring in. What's that guy's name finnegan. And he walks into runs with bases. Loaded the pitching coach. What do you tell them how you preparing him for this. You should be fired hitting coach games already over to me. It's the only down there only down to at that game. But it's the top of the third. They have a chance to break the game open. And you have your big offseason acquisitions schwartz strike out and before you get those those bases loaded walk of just the quirkiest little sun angles. Ball's bouncing out of gloves at a losing team. Did it just there a last place team and they ought to shake it up. They ought to fire some people. And if that doesn't work they ought to go higher. Because bell and schwab have failed. They have failed. Tanno rainy comes in last night. You know hadn't seen him in a week. Happily comes in and immediately reminds me why i hate him so much comes in summer storm reruns right away. Finnegan couldn't get anybody out when he was in there. And even when they score a few runs that it's fruitless it's just fruitless and they. I don't know it was a bummer. To see austin both have to come out early in the face. What does the other pitcher doing hit in the pitcher in the folks. It's one of those weird things. I was not intentional. But you really. You hit him in the face okay. You're coming out of the game. You're download them out like in hockey. Just removing throwing out. You know d- queuing. Somebody forcing them to withdraw. Seems a bit drastic but you know trying to level the playing. You didn't like the wrong decision at all. I it's it's a tough catch twenty two they They kicked jon. Rahm out faster than if you tried to say. Let's go brooks to bryson shambo. Now that they followed the rules they can defend themselves into the long hours. Your solution was interesting. We'll tell the people you are solution. How would you have let him play. I just wish they would have tried to come up with some solutions because the science gives us actual data points as to how we can safely be around somebody who has a who has a positive test so whether that was sending him out as a single early in the morning person out before anyone else teed up having let him to score up maybe jack has market driving around in a golf cart tending the flagstone and heavy tournament that resembles something full and i understand the arguments about the competitive equity that you wanna maintain and trying to see leaders going off around each other okay. Put him out in the last group and have You know can't lay and more college go out as a two ball right by them so they can at least see what he's doing hole by hole at this point you shouldn't be worried about pace of play and it's just this weird thing where he was already under the strict protocol where he was not allowed to go inside. He had limited access to everything. So if you're able to say his playing partner the that day did not pass the the exposure level where they had to then go into contact tracing themselves. You probably could've figured out a way to keep him on the grounds to post number. They seemed much more comfortable having fans running around screaming and you know drinking as many beers as they could yelling at people rather than trying to to play golf term but again this is not just the tour. This is state guidelines a cdc recommendations. But you'd want to say we have the data. Let's try and see how we can come up with a solution even if we're doing it on the fly by the way speaking of Boisterous behavior ninety year european. Where was that. Soccer game played yesterday between the united states in mexico. A believe that was in mexico wasn't it. I don't know i'm asking in the united states or denver. How did it. How did it happen that that mexican fans were throwing bottles onto the field constantly. How did that happen. You know it was really bad. Just throwing balls. Not like the old fedex fedex field situation where there are turning the old beer bottles into knives throwing bottles throwing bottles you know. They're you know they're just it's terrible. That was just terrible terrible. And i think that they were the mexican fans i think. It came from their particular corner of the stadium. It was a home game for the united states but for some reason it was played in in denver. Right show on. Why was we played in denver. Think that it just go to 'cause they're playing it in the united states the oh the concacaf. That's the limit of my sock. Probably got that wrong. We'll take a break. We'll come back. Michael wilbon will join us when we return. I'm tony kornheiser. You're listening to the tony kornheiser show. This is the simply safe ed.

You're listening to the tony kornheiser show. This is james mathis who writes longtime first time. I've been waiting to send something. my most. Recent recording sessions started this album in february of twenty twenty have yet to return to the studio. Finish that being said. There's a couple of songs office forthcoming ep. Back country music the first song which we're playing alesha vez which he wrote the back seat of a silver honda civic. On the way to a local radio station he goes under the name of zoltan. With tuesay's james mathis zoltan. This is called chavez. It's being used to play michael wilbon. We'll but we need to start with this woman's been away for a long time and we'll von got back and heard the familiar sound of cicadas and got to look at cicadas. Tell us your feeling about catos. I You know. It's the whole country's hot right now and whole countries a week ago record low temperatures throughout the east and i was there and When he started this whole it's going to be triple digits there. I'm like tony. I know where you live right now. You live in hell. That's what this is. I landed i was i was in chicago where it was high. But it was like twenty three percent humidity on on Saturday when i played golf there landed. Dca yesterday morning. And the cicadas look like. They're the size of like enormous butterflies. I mean maybe on moving towards the size of birds and ninety four degrees seventy percent humidity and these cases are bouncing off the windows of the car. I'm being driven home in. i'm like what. What is this. How quickly can i get the hell out of here. I literally to four seventy two hours. Max here i was like this is crazy. But the the the loudness toy the volume of the cicadas. I guess cicadas here in two thousand four. that's a. that's an olympic summer. that's greece. That was athens. And you in our lives yet. I went to i went to. I was in europe the whole summer. I missed that one and then means the previous year was like eighty seven. Eighty seven right. I was i spent the whole summer. My my dad just passed and went back in chicago with the whole summer there. So i to what i have lived in washington. Technically a resident of to the last two cicadas bump arguments was really around for it and you know what i ain't gonna be around for this when either so so the the plumpness of them and the chaotic way in which they fly when they not just fly into your windshield they fly into you. They land on you. This has happened to me. Fifty times already fly right into you. What do you make it. I make i'm getting outta here awful. It's it was so yesterday. I didn't go back outside. I think i think i have a car. I would only go get drive through food without even get out of the car to go to subway to sandwich while watching the games yesterday. I'm like oh no no. No we gotta go. We gotta go big mac and meal in the car. We're not getting out of the car and it's just. It was just like seriously like like anyone. You think your message. Anybody here glitz here was to talk about anybody. Else's weather and conditions atmospheric conditions cicadas everywhere. So i'm going. I'll do the show here today and tomorrow and then baby So let we'll talk about the nba but before we get to the nba. Let us talk about the women's open. Because i'm happy to say that you watch news i watched it and you know lexi thompson and i do not and it was a. It was a big time. Gag back-nine what would how would you describe. And also you have the benefit of having played the olympic club which. I never have so talk about that. Well it's it's just beautiful. Tony like all three of the great san francisco golf courses Olympic club san francisco and Oh goodness ours hardy. They're all on the same plot of land and water does separate them but you can see the other courses. You can see them from each other. And you've got the right vantage point and They're just they're just beautiful and incredibly difficult And so it's only i mean lexi. Who was i mean. Come on she. Maybe she the best american golfer now probably probably probably at this point. She may very well be but cruised she should've cruise cruise only five stroke lead. I was watching. I watched all weekend. I watched all four days because there are people like mel reid who i do actually know And i love the event. I watch any of the men this weekend. Who cares i mean they. They got a great income up in two weeks. I watch any of that But she had that leader. I was not been rooting for her. To hold the lead and win win a major and God was she got. I mean when she got late in the round as you know like sixteen seventeen eighteen there were just some some brutal mistakes and the golf courses difficult. Unlike last week's men's tournament at the ocean club and kilo. Which you know. I i told you. It's got a certain beauty to a certain appeal to me Olympic club has that beauty. And and that is difficult tony. They've been meant every men's Majors they're which arnold palmer and i mean the greatest men playing in that time struggled in loss leads and could not close it at olympic club. So it comes no surprise that the courses beat you up and particularly ladies listening to the broadcast. I was not a kid who grew up watching all that stuff. I i know of it. Now in retrospect but she she had his putt. She had a chip. That looked like something that you i might do. Yeah my make And so there were. There were at least four opportunities late. Still too close miss fairways. That can happen to anybody. So i just feel bad for her. I just felt i. He was standing after missing that putt on eighteen. That would have at least gotten their into that playoff. I just i just feel bad for her but totally everybody had their moments mel reach sixty seven the first day. I was really excited about that. And then You know she had janet blow up saturday so it's it's a difficult difficult of course to play a belief it's beautiful in the setting was beautiful like the weather was beautiful most of the time. So this is what. I wanted to say the first two or three days. When i watched it was cold it was foggy was tough to see. Yesterday i don't know if you felt this way because you've played it and i never have. That was the greenest course. I've ever seen the green was amazingly green because it's watered every day from the marine layer is. Yeah tony i. It wasn't the time i was there. It was that green harding hark harding park Two years ago so just before the nineteen just for the pandemic steph curry held a charity event huge event in conjunction with the peace. He held there and asked me to be one of the hosts with a man about illness. Cvs and we did that. I was honored to be asked and it was that same sort of green. And you know you know you don't necessarily have to get that every year san francisco. God knows their drought teams in northern california. You could get brown but i. i'm not seen it. That way and immoral emerald look at it was i let me get to the nba. The interesting most interesting series was the clippers and the mavericks. The first six games were won by visiting teams. I felt that the clippers choked huge in five but not as much as dallas choked in six finally in seven. A home team won donncha chad of a billion points. Don teaches a great great player. And yet when you and i talk you are somewhat critical of him right. There's something about him. Tell people in the content not about him. Like in the context tony of of basketball. I mean he's twenty two years old. He's a baby so the people who won sooner or as soon as he has Or you had a chance to do magic and bird. In the modern life people forget and lebron. James did not make the playoffs. His first two seasons in the nba didn't make it so you. Don t just not to criticize wildly or loudly or you know. Some sort of personal dismissal is not necessary as a matter of fact it would be very unnecessary but while we praise him about. He's great he's great. He's a great player now. He not championship greet yet. He's got stuff and the stuff starts with his temperament. You know you cannot. He spends too much time arguing with the officials and the play his moved on the players moved back down the court down to just trailing the play thirty feet because he wants to call no dude. No you've got to get back down the court. Your team plays no defense. You play no defense dodge. Plays no defense. He in james harden two thousand sixteen level of no defense. He's i didn't even try. So no you're not gonna win a championship. that way can't get up first round. It's two years of the row where they lost to the clippers and the first round. I look i get it. He's he's spectacular. Watch he also told me you know. His instincts are play. Play play but like the other night he if he attacked that that defense a little more being so passive dallas still won that game So you know the game at home games game six so there stare stuff he's got to do he's got to give better. They have to get better around him. And i understand why they weren't might look miami dallas had. They didn't really have a chance to be a great team this year. 'cause they were both loaded up money to go after janas pupo cool last summer we thought was going to be a free agent and they were. They kept their money to go after him. And god knows if you put onto the you put jaanus on a team with either. The people got in miami or the people that got in dallas right now. That team is going to be a favourite to win an nba championship. But then very early. On in the season he announced he was staying in milwaukee. So you can't spend any money then. The season started but they gotta put they gotta put a couple of people around You know they got a couple of people around dante's but he's got stuff he's got he's got to work on and and they're not gonna get better and he's to get better twenty two so i expect him. He says the right thing publicly. Tell them you know. I'll i can't behave that way. It does right back out and does it again. So you know you know that. That's that's what it turned off for me. I love it. i. I want to build a team around him. Hell yeah so. Let me get to let me get to the team. That you mentioned milwaukee milwaukee played and the person that i consider the most valuable player on the team milwaukee played james harden of the nets played twenty seconds and he left the game and he's not gonna play in game two and the nets still won that game And the nets boy. Oh boy i said this to you on the phone last night and i think he was shocked. I don't like kyrie irving personally. He's the best ball handler on on a basketball court. I've ever seen that includes pete. Marich ernie digregorio steph curry. He's the best any you know includes harden. He's the best. I've ever seen kyrie irving with the ball in his hand at his height finding a way to get to the basket. How 'bout you you've thought you left out the number one guy on my list. Is tom. com the lord tomothais. Yes look look. I'm not if the list is. That's short. I certainly can't argue with you. I'm not gonna give my list as one guy above kyrie. I you know i i. Yeah yes yes. He's great either. I say you all the time because kyrie irving is his you know. He's in his top five players. And you know my son is. He's a middle school point guard but you know his life about ball handling and point guard. Play the ball dribbling at our house all at all times and forcing his father to scream out put the damn basketball down and it's kinda wreak hari kari cari and my problem is if you're if you're a wizard with the ball. He's a magician with the ball. How come your career. Average for assist is five point seven because i guess that means you're not willing that you're certainly able. I think it's five point seven. I mean michael. Jordan has essentially the same assists lifetime of this Average short might be a little weird might be five point three kyri. This year was of it carries best years we've play with harden and harden in his sleep could get you ten in k. Gets you six. He's not willing is is not so yes we started. Having this conversation yes they. I'm screaming at matthew. Look at them. Look at him. He's great or two days is great but he's not. He's not getting his teammates. The ball because they have to. You can just finish himself. And he's like that his whole life but the the nets totally i. I pick milwaukee. Two days ago before i got the next to stay with them. Because hardened being the the nets record with kyri and kevin durant but not hardness something. That's not much not much. It's not bad. And milwaukee played a really stupid game of basketball the other day. If they don't get any better than that. I would fire their head coach. I would fire him this time. Because don't tell me you have to go. I for thirty on three pointers. You don't have to shoot three pointers. you've got size. Kevin durant may be long. But you don't have any size necessarily. You're not employing it on the brooklyn nets. The bucks played like idiots. I'm i'm i'm putting them tonight. I thinking to us tonight to play better to play smarter. They they do have small players and middleton and they got drew holiday and they've got they've got lopez have the talent. Yes the talent. First of all i think milwaukee led the league in scoring this year. Not the best. I think so you can score. You don't have to shoot threes. you'll have to go houston rockets stupid. Remember what iraq is in a playoff game a couple of years ago when like over twenty nine they must like twenty nine threes in a row and and every single person who cover the game watching closely with saying. I'm sorry you can't mix in a layup attempt when you're over twenty nine but you're still in the game you still a game. Well the bucks to that with with with The rocky The two days ago. And so i you know. I was angry at that because the bucks still in that game on the nets won comfortably. But if they're not gonna be any smarter than that walkie out to let's go to around in which smarter teams playing against each other and tony. I look joel joel. Embiid played and kick the sixers. But that land. Hawks are these surprised. The pleasant surprise. Like if the boston celtics are the. Oh my god. There's so much worse than we thought team is the. It's the atlanta hawks that you can't believe a plane as well as they are in the heart of that. Part of that is nate mcmillan. Lot a big part of that is nate mcmillan. So when everybody said how could you fire this other guy. Well look look at the result. Got it right up. I'll talk to you later. Michael wilpon boys and girls. We will take a break when we come back. Jay bilas will join us to talk about the man that recruited him to duke and has announced his impending retirement from duke. Mike shefty when we return. I'm tony kornheiser.

This is the tony kornheiser show once again. This is james mathis who goes under the stage name of zoltan. The song is entitled chief. Brothers for the allman brothers band influences and an old letterman. The it which is quit calling me chief. He can find more of his music on my space. It would be an honor and a pleasure to play wilpon sometime which he has done as i to live in a beautiful wide expanse between evanston in toronto. Which makes me laugh. Michael if people like james mathis aka zoltan wanna send in original music audit. They do it under music. By emailing it to jingles tony kornheiser show dot com. And by the way he not only plays in wilpon. He plays in jay bilas. And i wanna talk about chefs. And i wanna talk about him from your perspective. You know you knew him when you were a kid and you know him now. As a as an adult male entering middle age he was very very young when he recruited you. What were your impressions if you can remember when he came to see you. What were your impressions of this guy. Who was a new coach at duke. Three thousand miles away from where you lived. Yeah he. I was seventeen when he first started. Recruiting me tony. He was probably thirty. Four i'd say and And i had never heard of him when he started recruiting me. He was the least well known and least accomplished the coaches that i was considering and i was choosing a coach not a school at that time because i didn't i didn't have a very good relationship with my high school coach and i didn't want to go through that again so Who i played for was all i cared about and and coach Pat this ability to Engender trust i trusted him from the get go and he was really honest and straightforward. And you know back then Yeah it was. It was no internet. Obviously and you did stuff by letters and real phone calls your rotary out there. No cellphones and and so we. He spent a lot of time. Travelling out to see you and watch you play and stuff like that and A lotta coaches with the recruit against do by saying well. This guy's never done anything he's gonna get fired. He's not doing well and stuff like that and they'd also say if you gotta do they're gonna make you place. A gypsies make plays center for four years. And that's not your position. And i asked him about that and he said well you'll have to do it for a year. He's says we don't have anybody that can do it as well as us. So you'll have to do it for a year. But i'll recruit somebody and and move back over and i kind of figured that most people you know they might lie about that altogether and just say no. I will do that. And then Sticky mares. I wanted to plan center for four years by the way but it was straight up if the straight up deal by just trusted him right away so as i said. This is your growing up in california. You're going three thousand miles away to an area of the country that i don't know if you know anything about whatsoever and you go there on the trust of this one guy right you go for him. Yes that was it. That was all i you know. I duke was a good school. When i started recruiting me. I did not know where it was. I knew it was in the east and the atlantic coast conference stuff. But i didn't know where there are a lot of was or all that stuff so it was a departure for me and And and it was a a culture shock but It was life changing because of him really and you think about. It's only like the of the of the guys that recorded me. I came down to the four coaches. I came down to were ted. Kansas lute olson was at iowa back then and jim boeheim at syracuse. Then coach kaye. And and you know most of those three of those guys all of them have been final four and all that stuff but three those guys are in the naismith hall of fame and And stayed we stayed at schools olsen escape for a long long time and snow there and for for my coach essentially to be where i played for. My you know essentially my whole adult life. I'm fifty seven right now. Last forty i. It's crazy. It's really hard to wrap. Your head around has changed my relationship. I think it's made our relationships with all of our teammates. Better guys who played after s with the school It would be totally different. And i've had guys that play against Friends of mine had god. You are so lucky like my coach. Got fired three years. After i left and i don't even interact with my school anymore. You know stuff like that. That's been that's been a pretty pretty lucky thing. There was you mentioned the negative recruiting and in the literature of misha chef. Ski there is a lot to do with his early years at duke and the notion that he was not going to stay there for any great length of time he does not have a an atlantic coast pedigree. He went to the united states military. Academy i mean. They have canned him. Did you worry about that when you agreed to go there. Did you worry that he could be a short time guy. I agreed to go there because and maybe it was just sort of the arrogance that use that we thought we were going to go in there and wayne right away but when things go well our freshman year we struggled The buzz around the program about his status got worse and so there were times where we were we were. We talked about it. What happens if they fire him they. It was very real possibility to us now. He says that that he didn't think he knew it wasn't going to happen. That kind of thing that he trusted tom. Butters the athletic director. And the president all as they work at a folded trigger on it but But boy it was a negative feeling around the program. And and i actually asked my dad like i if if they fire him. I'm not leaving i. I'm not saying they're leaving. And i remember my dad saying you just calm down like there's nothing you can do about it just playing and That's not your area so so you quit like game planning this and and just playing. He was right. I shouldn't have worried about it as much but you know it seems kind of silly now. But they had there was a petition that was circling around. I never saw it. But i was told about it. By one of the no booster club members Who was a father of a friend of ours. And and i couldn't believe he actually told us that was going on. You know we're like this. Is our coach. Like why would you. Why would you tell us that but but it was pretty negative the first year and then then the my second year we started winning and and and nationally ranked and all that stuff and it. It sounds crazy but a lot of the most of the people that were circulating those petitions so on now by by you know if you tell somebody hey you know. They were thinking about firing him. They they they don't believe well. I mean just just working on a memory. There's jay bilas. there's marc alary. There's danny ferry. Johnny dawkins tommy anchor. Right i mean these. Are all your teammates. You and them and it's pretty pretty. Formidable squad would not agree with that. Yeah well well but that's when we got really good. They didn't know our freshman year. We were in eleven seventeen. We started like four or five freshmen throughout the season. And that was back. You know. Michael jordan and sam perkins kenny. Smug all those guys are a carolina. Length bias maryland. All that stuff so it was. It was difficult. Ralph sampson's at virginia. It was it was difficult to gain a foothold. but once we did and got really good But you know tony the funny part about it is my my senior year. We went thirty seven three and lost in the championship game. And and i. I think if i remember right i don. I don't remember graduating thinking. Well this is just the beginning. I mean this is. The people are going to accept this because there's going to be so much greater stuff coming after that. I mean i think there was a feeling that that when we lost him a championship game that we might not have a team not good again and he might have six or seven. That were that good or better and and one five champ. You know he could. We should have won. I think they should have won in nineteen ninety nine. I mean he could have eight Now he could lost at the kentucky and other things that reduce that number. But but if you're if you give him the nba's favorable You you could say he could have eight. You couldn't have. Nobody could have known what he would turn into what he would be as you've seen the development over the years i've gotta think that by the way teeny olympic team has a lot to do with it a lot to do with his reputation and the goodwill that he engendered over the years but how has he changed as a man. Has he changed as a coach. Have you seen those changes. Or is this essentially who he was even as a kid and while that the value system and the core of him is the same But everything else is is way better He's a better coach in every way Us a better leader He handled situations better. He delegates authority. He's i think he's learned so much and is applied all of that to to his job But but as far as like being the same guy away from his job I think he strikes the same court a lot But i don't think you can accomplish what he's accomplished and be be exactly the same And and i do give credit to this factor to that i. I'm for those that say. Hey he's he's changed Because there are some that say that i. I don't think it's so much him. I think it's people around him. You know with the way he gets treated the way he has to do. Things now You know his first answer used to be yes to everything and that's that's impossible now. Given sort of who he is and all he has to do but but he's still the same really good guy that he's always been and and that's a really cool thing And but you know he's not as Like when i played for him i would say volatile is not the right word but he he he would jump on. Yes if you made a mistake. And now he's now he's looking more for what's the right Resolve what's the right effect of this rather than because he would blow up pretty good like in a film session or something or practice and And he doesn't do that to the same level but as his enthusiasm has never wayne and And that's that's the most impressive thing to me of all the things that amazed me about him is that he can you know i. I made a joke about him. Being like the ultimate sherpa it keeps climbing everest. And you'd never get tired of setting basecamp free new group and he climbs the mountain with the same vigor and enthusiasm as if it was the first time and i really believe. That's true with each season You can't keep that up forever. And i think that's probably why why he's quitting his wife. Want to have a more normal life as as they you know their grandparents out and all that stuff so yeah. That's that's what i want to get to us to think. That seventy five was ancient. But as i approach it. I don't think it's his ancient anymore. And i've known michael longtime not closely but i've known him all the way back to the days when he coached at army and came to the college basketball writers luncheon every week in new york city when jimmy valvano was coaching iona on. Pj carlesimo was coaching lackner. And these they were kids. I was a kid at the new york times longtime in the rear view mirror. He doesn't play golf. You know. I mean what's he going to do. What's he gonna do. You know him. Well i think he'll do a lot of what he's doing now. Hill continue in with with a media presence with not only his radio show. But i imagine a lot of other things that he'll be able to. You won't be you know Guys like us that are schlepping it. Every day in the media but he'll he'll be able to pick stops and do fun projects at that move him and i think you'll be you don't get to the university ambassador key advice and and strategic advice and say the came out this rated. Your phone is breaking up. Your phone's breaking up. I'm sorry tony the he'll he'll do. It won't do data taste stop. It'll just be kind of the overarching giving advice. I i made a list of coaches great coaches john wooden dean smith bobby knight denny. Crum roy williams bill self. Jim boeheim john. Calipari larry brown gary williams jay right. Tom izzo all great coaches right. You you would not disagree with any of those. Is there one thing that mike is. That's mike that's different from them on some level or they all pretty much the same well. They've they've got a lot of the same Attributes all i in coaching. Unless you have those those attributes. But i think he checks coach paychex pox and And his ability to relate and to feel and and he's really good with ex here a lot of people say anything go. Why don't you try that then. It seems to work pretty well for them They do run stuff. But he's not he's he's system guy he's gonna taylor what they do to their personnel and he keeps changing evolving You know years ago. He fought the one and done thing and then she kind of embraced it one with it. So he's yeah. These liking like us to back on wooden saying of course he won he had alcindor and but he won five without those guys. Anyone practicing he wasn't doing different ways by the coach as very similar and that he's he's done it in different ways and he's done it over a longer period of time wouldn't in win for thirty five years. He won for fifteen coach k. One for thirty five at that level and that that's hard to fathom one year when you really think about it. It's an astonishing longevity. Really jay thank you thank you thank you appreciate it. Talk to you soon. Always thank you tony. Jay bilas boys and girls one of the most successful. I mean if you look at duke that that early class when they went to the finals. I'm probably wrong on this. But i think maybe they lost to louisville. I think maybe they lost a louisville in the final game. But yes if you're jay think well do you ever get there again. And they got their time and time and time again and the constant obviously was my shefty. We'll take a break. We will come back with email jingle when we return. I'm tony kornheiser.

Hillman embodied the instincts drive in guts. It takes to marshall. The human bodies defenses against the disease and this was excerpted from. Wnyc's radio podcast episode called the great vaccinated. I didn't know the name. I'm happy to know from jim. Mcmanus not gene mcmanus in manhattan beach. California i spent quite a bit of time last weekend. Listening to the top hundred beatles songs hosted by peter asher on the beatles channel for song number fifty nine.

And my subaru probably practically drives itself and so i can sit com buccio in peace traumatic mccracken and bloomer wisconsin. My name is adam mccracken. I'm an airline pilot for ups. I was driving into work the other day. Listening to the wednesday may twenty six show so this is from a couple of weeks back. I had my own david. Aldridge moment you read an email from the official ornithologist of the tony kornheiser show matthew burke. I immediately thought. I know that guy. I had to do a quick google search to make sure but sure enough it was the same matthew burke who was my high school biology teacher from one thousand. Nine hundred seventy nine hundred ninety. Eight mr burgas. He was known then was a young energetic teacher. Right out of college. He started a biology club. Not only did we do large projects associated with birds but he also took the club to montana during the summer to dig dinosaur fossils in fact it was on the inaugural trip that i was introduced to my future. Wife tina along with mr berg taking us hiking on a trail with the most brown bear attacks in the lower forty eight and mr berg getting a speeding ticket in montana where there is no speed limit. It's great to know he's a little. I wish him hardy lychees arri and hope to see him. One day to give them a property case salute for his years of great teaching and introducing me to my wife from lynda cowling in trenton missouri. I think of two thousand. His new jersey but trenton missouri. My wife linda recently retired after twenty. Eight your career. Teaching composition literature classes at the high school and college levels in trenton missouri. I'm taking her on a trip to the finger lakes region new york right now. She has no idea where we're going on our trip. Which begins june eighth. I would love for her to hear our destination from you since your voice has annoyed her for years and we both get ready to go to school and i have a podcast radio show playing also. If you have any places we should visit in the finger lakes region especially the binghamton area please indulge. Thank you for many years of laughter and entertainment my knowledge. The greater dc area politics news now far exceeds my knowledge of things happening in northern missouri. So i never thought of binghamton as in the finger lakes area Because we're not. I think we're a little bit south of the finger lakes area. I would say the finger lakes area is more around ithaca and syracuse and the saratoga. I think those goes all the way to saratoga. Goes all the way east to saratoga. I just know that in skinny atlas new york which is a very weird sounding name skinny atlas new york there used to be a restaurant called the crabs k. r. e. bs which was nationally renowned. And maybe even world renown if it is still there by all means go from andrew in innisfail every now and then a brand new sentences coined on your show the other day.

And just ask whatever is in your heart on your mind. If you this number eight six zero five zero six six zero one two that's call Mattie MacKenzie. Eight six zero five zero six six zero one two someday producer Brooks will give us producer. Andrew will give us access to the line. So we can hear all of the calls is exactly that's why he won't work cited. For today's episode. Dan Hicks of NBC sports is gonna join us as our guest to talk all things players. Of course, the Players Championship this week off channel Thursday and Friday from one to seven PM eastern Saturday and Sunday from to. Seven pm eastern. And importantly husband of the great Hannah storm team this teams come together. We're all just a big happy family. That's right. So we are looking forward to talking to Dan Hicks today. We will get into the players tiger wood spoke yesterday, we have comprehensive coverage of that. There's so many things to get to the Players Championship. In March the first time since two thousand five but we'll start back at Bay Hill work our way this week. The players were Michael is and to me Francesco Molinari will get into the winner of Bay Hill. But but catty the one thing that again jumped off the page to me with Bay Hill is Rory's inability to close the final group. Yeah. That was really disappointing. But to know what both of the guys in the final group stunk it low bit. Yeah. But I'm not gonna take anything Fitzpatrick's young. He hasn't been Mets. I mean, not that young. He just looks like he's thirteen you might be fourteen. Yeah. That's what I mean. But he's been around for a long time. It's not like he's this. This is not something new to him. This dude is one on the European tour before so bees, not run his inventing. Yeah. But he hasn't been as many times as ROY. He's this true this true. And look I mean, maybe we can start saying ROY just not closer. He's not. I don't think he is. We've seen it at the master's couple of times we've seen at recently was main look Patrick read won the master's ROY didn't lose the masters this last time, you know, he just he couldn't he's going to what every golfer goes through at some point. And it's lasting. Longer for Rory. 'cause I think it's in his head. But when he has that putt, that's the absolute positive you got to drain this eight footer to keep momentum. He can't make it. Yeah. Just this really having trouble making it though, he didn't put any pressure. Would you get Grammy that he didn't put any pressure on Patrick read final group Sunday? That's exactly right. Well, also, though, this is where you gotta give Patrick re credit. Anytime. Someone comes out and talk smack on Patrick he will wipe their behind. Yeah. Every single dude. And every single time recently he played with somebody who apparently had said some things about him and drop the hammer on that do too. So I'm just saying like, I give him all the credit in the world but back to Rory. It's Rory still hits the ball. Incredible. And amazing. You know, how many times of we talk about when it comes to ROY McElroy man when his games on he's better and everybody out there. The problem is we see now a game for a while. Well, no, we see it on Friday or Saturday. No. That's that. Don't you're a game means for the week. No, no, no. I am aware. I'm kind of getting to your point of we see peak Rory just when we need peak oriented Sunday or when he needs to close, we don't get it. But when he's hitting on all cylinders, I maintain see and that that's the question now with ROY. Because you know, we'll we'll get to this Augusta week that that's the only one a chef his career grand slam. But I still believe if I was ranking peak players height of their powers for one tournament. I would go I would still go ROY one. Really I'd still go Rory one. I'd go Justin Thomas to in Dustin Johnson three high. Yeah. You not even put Brooks kept getting works CAPCO. It'd be four oh at the height of their like if I'm putting those four in a group and each of them has that tiger quote, everybody. Everybody comes to the show with their very best Laurie. Nah, though. I'll take DJ number one. I'll take Brooks number two take Rory number three. Put Justin Thomas number four. How? You know, this is the kind of thing and super peak powers like I mean. Absolutely Pete powers. Can't miss. I'll take stent number five. Really? Yeah. What Stinson did at the open is proves that. When like his game when he's he's at the very top of his game at the one of the crazy venues like where you gotta just be the ball strike in master that do right? There is just and it was world class golf. But don't forget fill played world class that was just to do and loss to now. That's why Henrik's number five I would put Henrik fifth, but he's he's definitely up there. Yeah. So top forum solid on number five. I would say number five is is plug and play. Plenty of dude. You can put it number five. But those top four we've got the same top for then we'd just have them in different orders and those guys and look how. We forgot about Jordan speak. Look speaks to me. He's out. He's trying to he's trying to find himself. He's jordan's. Not good way. Yeah. But if he was on his game best that he's got into books. Like only gush might be number five. No way. What no way only Augusta. I'd put is tough one. Hold on a second. Okay. No. That man is only one major short. Of the grand slam aware, though. I'm aware. Yeah. Look he had that remarkable year a few years ago. This would have sailing how you going to say they only at the masters to do. I mean, he did pull a rabbit at the open championship. And he's only the PGA short. There's so many. I know it look, no, you know, I put v Justin Rose. Oh, man. Justin Rose above above faith, freely ass. Yes. We've seen it day. We've seen it more consistently at a Justin Rose again, Justin Rose is a just a rose what I call. He's an ATM machine. Machine. ATM? She isn't a thing. I don't think his best yet is no it's not what you mean. It ain't thing automatic machine machine. What I'm saying is ATM machine is when he's at his ATM machine. It's an ATM. Like saying the SEC conference the southeastern conference conference. Yeah. Anyways. Go ahead. Yeah. The ATM machine. Automatic. Never now. Go say just to know you all right? All I'm saying is Justin Rose when he's playing his his best golf. He just he just clicks off top threes. Top-five boom, boom, boom, check TAC TAC TAC. He doesn't he might not win a lot. But he does he plays. Good enough. Where he like I said he's just checking off top top-five who get third second third fifth fourth like, but peak powers if it was him against Jordan, speak just in a his best Jordan his best. I'll take Jordan. Justin by three strokes on Jordan. Nah, Justin, doesn't just in his best doesn't put like Jordan. His best Jordan ball striking wins. Justin Rose is one of the primitive ball-strikers on the planet. Yeah. He might be. But you can hit the balls of good as you want to. But if you can't put it in the whole from twelve feet or make a twenty foot or to save par dead center. Perfect speed. And that's when Jordan is at his. His when he was at the peak his powers that do put like tiger used to. Yeah. I know, but jetty we haven't seen that forever. That will but seen that we're saying that height of their power. But when I'm telling you is that we've seen more of the bad space than we have the Goodspeed. He had a run that he had that rose was at fourteen or fifteen fingers fort was fifteen at the fourteen either way he had that remarkable run when he was one of the major championships us finish in every was winning. He won the US for every single one. Right. And that was a run septa PG. And then when the open championship last year, he found his way back into the major championship but with him with Jordan. He he goes wheels off quicker than any top golfer in the world. I think current, but he also used to be able to the wheels back on faster nearby few. Remember like slumped? He went through right before he won at Hartford holding out from that bunker, like he was he had come into that week kinda in a bad way. Like he hadn't been playing all that great have been real frustrating stuff. He just you know, he's one of those guys that he's open schools. He's old soul offer where he's still shows a lot of emotion and stuff, which I love, you know, I don't understand why you know, what it is. Because he doesn't curse like even though he shows emotion talks to the ball gets real animated stuff. Like that. You never hear them like dropping f bombs on a golf course. And I he gets pretty animated. He he gets anima. We had golf course. What? No, no. I'm saying. Like he knows when the cameras and microphones he sat. Oh, yeah. He's very Selamat. Let me ask you this. Because we've kind of I don't know how we've gotten into a Jordan to beat discussion. But we have. I don't know how much do you study the official world golf rankings? Okay. I don't because I don't believe that. They're right. All right. So if you had to guess, what would you guess your speeches ranked right now, he probably be just outside the top twenty years twenty fifth. Yes. E the wound rankings right now, Dustin Johnson one Justin Rose to Brooks KEPCO three. Justin Thomas four. You know, who you know, you know, let's move on from Bay Hill. Francesco Molinari got the win because we are currently to play right there. I had a nice little toast would Ana Palmer. Yeah. We also would he don't be mad. You know? We saw your social media not the one that you a can. But what Arnie's used to drink their Bay Hill? Francesco Molinari a ball striking fool when he hits. Hake. What's he is? He what's he five seven. Yeah. No, he's probably he's taller in person any looks. He's kinda working on that, catty gut. He's definitely got a dad Bod. This lady so much. I disagree. A boy Pat Perez try to his working out first time, four months just and hurt himself. Stretching your after he was doing these presses and stuff. It was terrible feel bad for he's probably out. Find out today's got an MRI on his cap. Apparently, he's got a grade to tear of the calf. What about the achilles? He thought he Budi achilles out. But I think thankfully, as of now what we know. Like, I said he as we take this. He's getting MRI that you've right now as we're taping this, okay? Wednesday morning, ten twenty six AM eastern. Yeah. Which is I think eight o'clock in because we let forward and AirAsia yacht is three hours now seven thought it was too. It's been to the last four months. Let's see we sprung forward, and they stayed ahead. So we added an hour on them. Well. Okay. You don't get it. Do. I'll get oh why can't tell just be like everybody else because we're we're perfectly fine. He's perfectly fine. All right, anyway, he's getting his right now to to determine exactly the the full extent of the injury. But he saw some guys for from the Arizona karnal cardinals trainers. Yep. And they said it was a great to tear of the calf which normally take six weeks to heal up which would be good that he'll be able to come back and do some things there. So you know that working out is a little bit overrated. So you got a guy like Francesco Molinari and stuff as guy to my own heart. You know, what you never hear guys doing you never pool or tear fat, you know, here. Like all this dues out for four weeks. 'cause he tore his fat. Yeah. You don't fats hard to injure. It's it's impossible to engine. You know, why it's pliable, but with regards to Francesco, I disagree, and you're out there Pontevedra I disagree. The one of the laziest things in golf conversation. I could be one hundred percent wrong this time next week. You probably are now probably I'm right? A lot more than you are your home. I got you kidding me. Visiting going to be hard to say. But I disagree with these people that have installed Mullen areas the favorite of the players you can't win back to back weeks on this tour right now, it's too tough. I completely agree that it is really difficult to win back to back weeks. But I will say if there's one guy who could do it. It would be Francesco. Now, do I think he's going to absolutely not absolutely not? I think he'll make. The cut and I think he'll have a nice weekend. You know? Here's the thing about Francesco is that and this week. It is a huge burden off the shoulders of a player coming off a win out to not have to play a pro-am, and there's no pro-am at the Players Championship. Correct. So these guys will play nine hole practice on Tuesday nine holes again on Wednesday. Get a whole bunch of work done. The press is not allowed the like all the press not allowed up onto the practice area, which believe me is an area of some serious serious contention. Yeah, we're going to ask you about that being being there this week because bull. It's it really is why horse why? Because that's where a lot of times you get the most work done as a reporter, especially a writer. As a writer. You're not a writer. So you shouldn't be complaining. You've said that numerous times, I'm not a writer, although I did write something I'm very proud of that is on ESPN dot com golf pays right now. We'll we'll talk about that later. Try to stay on your your your year. Is you were trying today? You look like intestine stays stay straight here. DNA if I ever been able to just stay right on never look segues. Bring us back. You know what I'm saying? It's not just something that mall cops ride. It's also something that could be used in English here even doing it. Here gets back to the damn driving range what you were talking about the reason that it is a pain for writers and reporters journalists not to be not to have access to driving ranges because a lot of times guys aren't going to sit in their hotel room. Right. So what are they going to do? They'll just go out to the driving range hit some balls be social little bit. And it's the perfect time to talk to them and get them to talk about things that don't even necessarily have to do with this tournament like the masters coming up. Yeah. So last week on a Palmer and this week at the players a lot of writers and journalists reporters are gathering information for things they're going to write for the week of the masters leading up to the master. Okay. Let me ask you. So. The players can't if you can't get a guy on the driving range. Then what you're forced to do is go get him on the golf course. While the practicing, but the problem with doing that is now you're at the place where they're trying to get some work. Yeah. I disagree with the course angle. So what day because we've been in the players we've covered for three years in a row you've been there numerous times what? So from from Monday on you guys because we were allowed in the range every year. I was there. Yes. Last year was the first year that they didn't let the media onto the driving any day of the week. So not even on Tuesday. Nope. No Monday, and believe me wanna tell you. There was talk of a boycott. You know, why I think this is happening? This is all speculation. Okay. We talked about this on a couple of podcast prior to. And there was a there was a good debate about it on golf town of this morning about whether or not in the schedule change again first time this tournament played in March two thousand five thousand six two six. I really believe that because this is the first air quote, major tournament of the year, the really trying to get it to the point. Now where it loses that party appeal and these guys now top fifty players in the world or in the field. We're not doing it. Augusta messing around in the driving range, and I really think they're trying to establish that type of culture for these guys because let's notice bull why? Because this tournament also invites the most loggers than any other tournament and no one, maybe that's the reason. Maybe they're tired of the bloggers walking around the range. Not. That's not why. And they do they do all kinds of like there was a wins. The last time at Gus the national there was a concert on the twelve green after practice was over never ever hear that you ever hear Gus that having a fly over. I get that. Okay. So that's what I'm saying. It's like look pick. What you want to be if you if you trying to get an identity, then get one don't keep changing it up. Like, I wanna be this. Okay. No, no. I want to be this. Oh, no way. We I wanna be this. I wanna be you know, what just pick something. I the problem is you're making it difficult for people to do their job. And I see what you're I get this. Let's be honest at Augusta from for most journalists it's the tournament. You can't wait to get to and the sooner you get there. You can't wait leeann. Because you're not getting anything. You're getting the sanctioned press conferences. That's the only time we're getting access to the players you might get them walk in from the range to the media center. But most of the time they get on a cart Gosden their cart it away. And I and I agree like, this is where most people are getting their works ESPN. And we get a lot of our sit downs for masters coverage at Bay Hill at the a lot of prep work to get to that point. But when you look at some of these guys that are out. Out there this year this tournament change the schedule change. I mean, it's and I love that. We saw tiger show up there this week. It really feels to me that golf season starts tomorrow. You think so? Yeah, I think it's it starts tomorrow. We are now has sorts on Monday loved it. He's like, you know, what backward. Tat time folks, George speak guess shorts on right now. I think it's I think golf season started this week. Because now you're seeing the best players in the world altogether. And now we're trending to ward the first major championship of the season. We'll and what we're going to get an idea his Andy north, and I talked about this on sportscenter on Sunday. And it's kind of been one of the conversations we've had going in. North has old guy syndrome, though, when it comes to this every all the old guys are so happy it's back to March. You know, why? Because they all love saying, you know, back when I played I had a five hundred seventeen what's wrong with that you play when you played your Senate on a lot of balls. Yes. And his presser he knows what's gonna five and six hundred seventeen because the same thing that's back when he was playing a round blotto ball. You know, what no one's going to do this week? Even if it's blowing thirty miles an hour. No one's hitting the six hundred seventeen you know, why? Because the equipment won't allow it. That's fine. But I think the players was out of place in may. No, it was not out of place in may. Because what other major championship was played in me. Well, they've changed. There's one every month mayors that thing guess what's going on right now the NCAA's, well, it's it's conference tournament week the NCAA's aren't right. Nobody hears about that. Right. Car was tournaments as ESPN guy say yes, everybody cares about the conference. But in the grand scheme of things. No, let me ask you this. All right. Do you believe that people who watch both basketball and golf will switch off a basketball to watch golf now? Yes. No. Yes. No, this you know, what this wasn't done for the basketball crowd. It was done for the football crowd August. But you know, what? There was no football crowd in may. So I don't sorry. You're not you ain't getting me on. I love how staunch you are in this may the players thing. I think this is absolutely perfect for golf because you needed to have. I was sick and tired of semi big tournament semi big tournament. Matchplay worthless right now Spar Houston shallow. But whatever health things called now and then Valero Texas Open and then the masters. I was tired of that. I needed a taste of competitive best in the world Gulf to see where the guys are one month before we head to the masters. So now, we have a major. Tournament every month of the year lead up to Nord matchplay is. Get outta here. Let's play stupid or I completely agree with that. But this what do you think the WGC's are? They're trying to be the WGC's. Our best players in the world gearing up their games the match plays a stupid thing. Because now they got us half the state every three days all that. What whatever would that autumn? Tell you is. In the schedule change that brought the players back to March. It do a monkey wrench into everything. And it's not gonna change. The fact of that people still go golf starts at Augusta. Because it does it again. I don't I don't think that will change. But what I believe this does is it gives us a feel of major championship Gulf one month earlier, and I'm all here for that. Okay. I don't believe it gave us a feel for major championship golf when they were here up until two thousand six I think there was a reason that they pushed it back to me. I think they got much bigger and more excited crowds in may because it was summer it was ninety degrees. And then I think they got mad because it made, of course, play so much easier and guys could tear it up. See I disagree. I think the is going to be more forgiving this week. 'cause there's more moisture notice course, so tiger said in his press conference that when he won here in may on the eighteenth hole. He hit three iron nine iron. Yup. Into that into the eighteenth hole. So on Tuesday when we were out why you would three iron he ripped three would. And then said to Joey he didn't believe that three iron will be enough and Joey said, it will be just gonna have to smash it, and he did and actually missed the green to the right, but then made party and joking said, I hope you press the vet their which made everybody around the green laugh you love thrown in your little little things. I wasn't. I was trying to make him laugh whatever it just happened that everybody else around there laugh too. But whatever, you know, but the ball's going to be more receptive greens are going to be. I think the the greens are going to standing sub air here. They do. All right. So they're going to drive this place out. There's a problem right now because they oversee everything so hard, but it didn't take on the greens. So the greens are receptive right now. But when that wind picks up, and they dry out like you'll see way you see how stressed out these greens are by Saturday afternoon. You almost sound get off your lawn guy with them changing it to March. I'm the young dude. Who goes I'm not trying to make the old dudes happy from back in the day and goes perk when I wanted I wish you get back to what it used to be make the players great again kiss my behind. You know, what bring all the young kids in who are wanna have fun and see this stuff like make it make it almost a party atmosphere. Again, like, you know, what you ain't getting called in March a major because you know, what majors. I the masters saying is never going to be a major. I it's never going to be a major now. Now stays in March. No chance no chance any major is going to be before the masters. So what do you think the winning score? Is this week is Webb Simpson wanted eighteen under last year, which is absurd. That's just dumb. I don't want to champion win at eighteen hundred. That's why why another reason like it March me my champion at eight under. It'll be twelve twelve. Yeah. It'll be twelve to fourteen hundred a win. Yeah. 'cause it'll be guy you're gonna hit a lot more drivers now 'cause they're not gonna go quite as they're not going to go as far and they're not going to run out. But it also means you're going to be able to keep it in the fairway more. So does this bring has you know, one of the big? Storylines with playing at sawgrass it never the favors the bombers because they don't think their driver out much because you really don't need it at the Pete dye. Course, we'll talk about this actually you and I are making appearance today on daily wager get some stuff in. But this to me opens the with the move to March opens the field up just a little bit more. You re with that the bombers might be in play now because you can't use the driver more. No, no, it's still this is a course this is a ball. Struck course. It's not a bombers course. And it's always been a ball. Strikers course, whether it's been played in March. Or may you just gotta be your boss striking has to be on all week. And this course, never lets up. It just never lets up. The one thing that you'll see now is with it being in March is it gives you just a little bit of room for era in when it was a made like on eighteen where they had the pin back on Tuesday on eighteen and it was the first time since two thousand six that. I saw somebody hid iron along iron internet green that hit into the Bank that separated the middle portion of the green to the back, and it stayed on the Bank in may that would roll the hallway back to the front of the green probably twenty yards where now it'll stay right there because the temperatures are cooler even. With the suburb. They won't get the greens ridiculously fast. They won't be able to be fast enough and firm enough. How's the feeling out there? Gimme gimme the sense from being on the ground for the past couple of days with Mike players and patrons. I mean, what's the feeling out there being in this being in this month for the first time in thirteen years? Everyone think the course it self looks spectacular that about the grass looked better it, it's a different color green because they oversee did everything so hard it just end it all took it all came in really lush so on television. This course is gonna look like a Gusta because it's that color green, right? As far as the field goes field. There's only twenty three guys in the field that have played this tournament in both may and March and only two of one at Adam Scott Tiger Woods yet, which means on hundred and twenty. One guy's is field of one forty four one hundred twenty one guys had only played while the guys who played here before are seeing this golf course going, whoa. Yup. This is a big. Not not big as in long. But a big boys golf course out. This is it's a it is a major championship venue and guys realized that it's going to take a. A game type performance for the week to win. And because of that everyone's really excited, and yeah. And it's a stern in that kind of gets back to my point from earlier is we're giving were throw in these guys a major championship type test pre major championship. And I love that. Yeah. I mean, it's it's just a cool. It's a cool vibe. But you know, what they had the feeling around the golf course of a major championship venue was the exact same when it was played. In may the only different was we had already played the master. Right. So because we already had one major in the books. It was like, okay, we got one major books. And now this is like a tune-up of the US open because it may it was I okay? This rough even though it's wispy Bermuda is if you get in it, it is brutal. Where I think this rough now with the oversee to RAI it's it's a little more predictable. You're not gonna get nearly as many flyers out of this rough as you did out a wispy Bermuda in may. Yeah. And that intimate that'll be one of the big indicators watching this tournament over the next four days. Just the change, in course management with these guys. It's gonna be fun to watch one of them. You brought up tiger. And Adam Scott, the only two that have won the tournament March that are in the field. I wanna get to tiger because I was dead wrong with something I said about tiger last week watching his press conference yesterday. I couldn't be any less concerned about his health. I'm not concerned about his health at all. I legitimately believe that he's just in a situation where it's just gonna be maintenance because he's playing a lot. He had said that the stress on his body has to go somewhere because his back as fued. He's had the knee surgeries. He's got all this stuff going on with his body to where you know, what the next gonna get sore from time to time. And I'm okay, I'm okay with tire. Yeah. I'm cool too. And that is this is the target that we have now, you know. So when people are like, hey, man, this is going to get back to what it used to be in two thousand knows not we ain't never seen that dude again, which you and I've been saying for a long long time the thing that tiger was all because of tone and. How he talked about it. The thing that I'm going to be surprised about that. I have now changed my mind on is. I think tiger does not play Tampa next week. And I think he's gonna try and play Matt yet. I was wrong there too. I said take match-play adage because the amount of feed has to play. But he said he almost said like he he leaned towards match-play before anything else before Tampa. That does give the week. He won't play Valera. We we all know that that that doesn't Tonio. So that does give him a week buffer still for Gusta year. The problem though, is he had a week off before he was scheduled to go to Arnold Palmer. Yeah. So of his neck was bothering him. He had a week off to recover. Yeah. So now, you're going to go. But yeah, I'm glad you picked up on that. Because that that stuck out to me is wait a second. He just kind of leaned in to the match play more than Tampa. Yeah. And then, you know, of course, they were like so that means vow spars off the table. And he goes, no, look everything right now is up in the air. And can I just say just the way he was talking yesterday? He was like a hypnotist. I've never heard him. Stay that monitoring. No. He was just comb. He was put I was tired yesterday. So like there was a couple of times my head nodded on him. Because I was like come on man, you give me a little more than he go-. He gave us the the sound bite that will. That'll stick with me when he was talking about, you know, the Jack comparison growing up, and then they talked about the majors and he's like. One of us has eighty and it ain't had Jack seventy three career wins. Tiger eighty second. Sam Snead obviously, the fourteen to eighteen majors Riga, he gave some goods, and then and our buddy. Sobel asked him if he keeps track of metrics. And he goes yeah wins. Yeah. Zingers? I I it was Tigers semen calm at the podium because it means he's at peace with whatever's going on and trust me when I tell you. We were having a really good time out on the golf course on Tuesday, just laughing and joking around and talking smack and like the first thing we were talking about was the Oakland Raiders. You know, and. Who they got Antonio Brown coming in them. And what that's gonna mean for them and stuff. And now how good they're going to be. And what their he thinks. They're playing is because of the draft status and stuff like this, dude. Can I ask you? Yeah. Every every time you're at tournament with tiger. You come on until these great intimate stories about you. And tiger on the course. Yeah. How many times you've been on the podcast with us? Like you guys are so tight how hard is that to be like, hey, five minutes for the podcast. You get all these stories and years are holding hands on the course, skipping down the fairway talking about what ball you sound just a little jealous gel. Look, I just want. You. I want content. I'm giving you content. I'm telling you exactly what happened on the golf course. Every week. I'm like, you know, here's another. We're him in tiger. You're like an annoying girlfriend right now. Like, I just came home. It was like man, I had a great day at work. And this is what I do. Well, how come you never like if I'm a car sales? You're like, well, how come you never bring cars home for me to drive? We'll get a job at the place where I worked in. Why do I had tiger about the raiders were avenue to Gail time sharing? You're one of us flew up the kid and might be just a little mad 'cause they cold old. I got a cold. I got I got some stuff going on right now. Man. Don't he mad just because they're look when I was out there talking to tiger. I was thinking you the whole time. Thank you. You say my name. Name. I can about what. Before before we get to our buddy. Dan, heck's is going to be our guest talk the players in all things golf, the swift from John Johnny Miller, Zinger all the good stuff. Let's get. For asking a couple of questions here. We'll each give our pick. And we'll go from there who did you pick or ESPN dot com selections. Pig hendrix. Oh, you idiot. I know I know. I know why. Because I didn't realize how bad the break-up was between him and his caddy Scott. Vale? Yeah. Bad tears. It's not from what I'm hearing. It was not cool and not good. And then he is fanny on the bag over the weekend. But she ain't catty and for now. And like this bad juju coming dudes way. Like he's that ball strike in guy around this place. And the last time it was played here. Last time the players was here in two thousand six stench it finished third ball strike in full. Yes. But you down. On him. Yeah. So I'll leave the karma thing. I agree. I agree. Karma's the thing so Stanton. I'll give you you know, what we'll get. I'll give you an out in a minute. Okay. I took Zander Shaw. Fli? What? Yeah. Why? I think zander's that guy had a second last year. He's won this year. He's been idead that next up and coming American golfer also guy who's going to be completely confused about this place. Now now, I think that's I think that's open for the field except tiger. And some of the other guys have played in it. It's almost this is the one time 'cause the first timers never one here. This might be the first time that that happens. I like I like the the Ricky's and the zander's and some of the younger guys, I think Zander is gonna be in contention again. I don't think I don't think he'd contention. Yeah. I think he can finish top five but win. I think the problem is if you've played here and head six s had success here when it was in may, I think you're bringing too much baggage to the table. And I think it's gonna be hard to let that go on a Friday and a Saturday Saturday, especially like on a moving day when you're going to be like, okay. Yeah. I can now I can do what I did before. Like, no, you can't cause this ain't taking even though you're walking on the same. Course, it ain't the same course. I hope more than anything. And that's the most overrated storyline coming out of the week. I really do. I hope that that the storyline. That is good for us to talk about because the month and the temperatures Webb Simpson wins this year. He'll be the first dude he go back the back, and he would have won it in less than a year. Let me help you out with something you could put your beard on the line that web. Simpson's not winning. No. Why would I wanna shave up here? Like, my told you wife's I'm not allowed to do that. No more. So you took Henrik. I took. Zander. Let's give people good value and betting. I'm gonna give you the odds on favourite right now Dustin in Rory the favorites at twelve to one. In the forty to one cluster. Forty two one is why start considering it? Good money. You've got Paul Casey Patrick can't lay Tony fee now. Adam Scott, Matt Kuchar Webb Simpson. I think you could make some money to one. Yeah. Yeah. You think you can make money on the twenty four seven. I think you could lay money on Adam, Scott, and Tony female and feel pretty good about yourself at forty to one. You know, the dude, and you're you're going to. Yeah. You know to do who made a run last week and was in a good spot. And who also made a run at this tournament a couple years ago is kinda it's going to sound like it's going against what I said before which. I know. But in a way, it's not because now we're talking about a value bet. All right. If I got if I got a hundred bucks of disposable income that I could just throw around. Yeah. Rafa Cabrera they okay. And he's listed at fifty to one. That's good. Look I like that too. For me, anything forty two one down. You can get some decent. Some look. I mean, Patrick lead sixty two one fill sixty one year. Boy, I mean there's good money in those lower lower. Yeah. This really good money in those. I don't I don't hate that pick Rafah's that guy that he's another one where when he is striking is so pure, and he's incredible. But he's also a guy to be completely honest to think. I would rather him be to back starting Sunday out. Then have no question. There's a lot of those guys God is the day. And I'll say number one. And this makes what tiger did so impressive for that decade Ghana days. I believe or the guy grabs a hold of a tournament. After Saturday's round going into Sunday. And it's over I think those days are gone. Well, not as a couple of those dudes, but they're few and far between. So like Justin Thomas if you give him a two shot lead on Sunday. He's going to keep wanting to disagree. He didn't do it. Now lay. Okay. Yeah. That's true. I just do. I still believe that he is a closer. And I believe that if he gets in that position again, he won't spit the bit and Dustin Johnson another one that do gets up at the top of the leaderboard. And I it's very hard to see him spitting the bit. If he's in there with a two or three shot lead going in Justin Rose, your boy. Yeah. Justin roses, another one. I think he's he's a okay pretty good front runner 'cause he's not afraid to be in that position. So George guy. There's a name who's who's underrated. Who I think is would be an okay front runner. Bryson d Shambo now off him right now. Out of think overall like four rounds right now, his games, not they're like, and that's kind of he he comes in and out. He'll go through a two month stretch where he looks on beatable. And then something just happened. And does feel right things aren't clicking Jordan. Yeah. Although Jordan has been. What a year now joins finding himself. But when he finds it there's no one better to watch specially in the putty and how clutch can be all right.

Our guest today. Hickson? I have a thing because he's an Amazon a guy, and I'm an ASU guy. Dan, we're going to try to put that aside at least for this you good with that. We're going to do our best not easy, but we will do our best. And we will we will forge ahead. Matt. We will we will. We will be brothers and arms for for fifteen twenty minutes. Max, look if you can be married to a woman who works for ESPN slash ABC. You worked for golf channel's last NBC if you can have a happy home we can get together for one little podcast because zone. Arizona state thing is a bit more. The golf channel NBC ESPN. In fact, you know, I love ESPN because they've put half my, you know, half my girls. What I mean? I'm going there this. Yeah. This love doesn't doesn't stay far. But Dan, one of the storylines going into this week is the players returning to March for the first time since two thousand six you've been a part of the coverage. I'm curious from your perspective, where do you see this tournament differing now coming back to March for the first time at about thirteen years? Well, you know, a bit around long enough Matt where I've done both and did many many years when it was in March. Of course, the last time it was in this month was in two thousand six so we did several of them this time of year. And I love it. I love the move for a couple of reasons a lot of a lot of people are not talking about getting away from mother's day. I think that's a big deal. I'll never forget. When it moved to that that may date that it just, you know, it's such a great championship. I didn't think it had the vibe that it needed on Sunday mother's day's an important day big day in my house. Let me tell you I'm on the road. So that's that's. No that doesn't help. I liked the fact that I'll be home for mother's day down the road. But seriously, the golf course was designed and everybody will tell you that it's designed to be played in this month. The oversee is great it becomes I think more of a true test in the way, Pete and Alice dye wanted it to be so I look forward to we could get a couple of nasty days could be a couple of blustery days. But just looking at the forecast it's going to be perfect. I think we're going to get a nice little entree here. Thursday and Friday, warm weather, and then a little fronts coming through that could have some very interesting wind coming across seventeen and eighteen which is going to live in the place up. Yes, sir. There's nothing better than the seventeenth hole with a cross win because of how it swirls down there. And there are times when that wind if it's coming across the eighteenth t that's into off the left and so for right handed player that likes to play. A cut if that pins on the left hand side, you have to start it over the water. And if that pins on the right hand side, and you started at the middle of the green and the wind catches a little bit. And it's the opposite. If you're playing draw now how much into the windy playing it. How hard they I was telling earlier the one thing that you that does drive me nuts. His when the old old school guys are like, you know, begging today hit a six hundred in there and nobody's hitting the six hundred this year. Yeah. Not with the equipment that we play now because these guys can flight that ball has less spin it goes through the wind better. But the exiled that those guys are going to be feeling standing on that tee still the same. I was gonna say Matt, you know, I think we made the wrong decision bringing Paul as ING into the booth. Instead of Michael Collins here beat me to it. I mean that was especially one tasty deep piece of analysis right there. But you're right. You're absolutely right. It's gonna bring so much more. Unto play on a golf hole that was difficult to begin with. But with this wind doing exactly what you're saying. In whole locations back on eighteen it's going to bring a whole nother piece of spicy this to this this thing, and I think and that's sixteen as well. Six. Let's not forget about that. You know, one of the great risk reward par fives in the world. Those last three holes are going to be a roller coaster ride where you're going to see a lot more change than even you have in the past the one thing I ask you about sixteen though is because of how long this course is gonna play. Don't you think less guys are going to go for that green now? Yeah. Not going to get the role. I do I think that but it's just gonna pin on what the winds doing. I don't know what it's going to be doing on Saturday and Sunday for sure, but I think that's stuff. I do. I think I think what what makes it great par-five is to just ten allies. Most of the field. We're going for we're going to get a little less of that. We're going to get a little less of that. But I think that if. If you've got gotta make a move and you need to get a number. It's still very very doable. Take us inside the production. Now going into the telecast Thursday through the weekend with you guys now and being a customer this tournament over the last thirteen years being in may how you kinda have to adjust. How you look at the course in terms of broadcast because it's gonna play completely different than anything. We've seen over the past ten thirteen years it is. And I think that you know, you can go back to two thousand six and say, all right. Well, we've done it. But we haven't done it in this generation of golfers and Michael's alluding to that these guys can flat out bomb it, and they could flat out hit some golf clubs that are going to go to scary scary distances, and I think that we're going to see definitely longer clubs hidden. We're going to have to have the coverage which is up above this golf course, which is much as you can do because it gets a little it gets a little dense. There's been some stuff that's cleared up. But we we are infacy. Even more above after a shot is made to kinda show people the lines that these guys are taking because they're going to be a little bit different. They're not gonna be the same lines that you've seen for the past thirteen years or whatever. So I think I but again not until we kinda get into the mode on air. We're gonna fully know that one thing I was always curious about to from a broadcast sign of because I've never done television like you and you're one of the legends this tournament going from may back to March. Does it change the pictures that you draw knowing that the winning score might be seventeen under as compared to four under? So when guys are out on the golf course making charges, you guys get can get really excited and everyone gets into because missing fourth birdie in a row, and he's hitting wedges into everything. And now, you're going to go to a golf course where the same course. But it's going to be. Well, this guy's making his third Bogin row, and how does that change your philosophy? Then kind of on the broadcast. Yeah. It's it's a good point. It's it's gonna be interesting to see if we're going to get the volatile lead changes volatile moves from the players in. The course like we have in the past. But feel look at the stats, and again, we don't know what the weather's going to do from from now until the weekend. But if you look at the stats, the the numbers from March to may aren't that different the scoring average isn't that different? So, you know, maybe it's a stroke here in stroke there. And again, it would it would spike if there was some wind of any kind of substantial of velocity. But I I don't I let's let's this first one come to us again in this generation of golfers who who have the distance that they have there is going to be more guys taken a rip at it out there it I think I think it's an understatement to say, well, you know, you've got to lay back, and you. This is a target golf course. If it's still playing pretty wet out. There was a big rain the other night, they add the sub air. But I think that guys are going to be able to unleash it a little bit more now than they did in the past in that in turn this rough isn't crazy. That's just crazy. Yeah. I think I don't want to get into the bomb and gouge conversation. But but again, it's a tighter golf course than a typical Bob bomb ago course, for sure, but I think you could see some more drivers in certain times that guys will use because they can get it up and down out of this incredibly uniform rough the old Bermuda stuff the sand on the bottom. And the, you know, we don't know what kind of liar. You're gonna get how it's gonna come out the good that Bermuda gives you these guys are so good. They're figuring this stuff out. And they're all out of that rough in it's not a lot of change from shot to shot. These guys are good used to be a great marketing campaign. Where do you stand big picture with tiger? Big picture. It's you know, we just talk about it seems like twenty four seven, and I I'm the school that in. It's not a it's not a new point. But this day and age of players is so much deeper so much more talented. I think from top to bottom yields than win. Tiger was doing his thing. That's not to take away from what tiger dead because he probably did the same number on the guys today because he was that good, right? But with that said the big picture it's all about. Okay. You know, he's forty three years old in. I don't I don't think it would be shocking, and I don't expect it to happen. But I do not think it would be shocking. If you didn't win another major and if he didn't win another golf tournament. Oh that sounds nuts. And I'm not going to bet against him golf tournament. But us forty three years old these things really hard to win. And we're finding that out with Rory who's been knocking on the doors. Got the talent. He has. He's got like, you know, five straight top six finishes and had no surgeries. Exactly, exactly. All it. This is trying to get it done on Sunday. When you're not as free wheeling as you usually are the first around so with that said, I I'm like, let's bring it on. He's incredible for the game. I hope he I hope he gives Jack a run, and I hope he gets Samson eater run. I think tiger can win golf tournaments. But I've already said publicly that I don't know that I don't know that I think he can win another major so Tom. I'm yeah. That's and people who are always saying, oh, how could you say something like that? Maybe. Yeah. Met one of these guys like that. It's not the way it's going to be. But I look at golf now. Like, you look at golf going. Look, Dustin Johnson is not gonna stop practicing. Brooks kept good not gonna stop working out because he Tigers back. So we have to do it. Now. We'll let him carry everything for a little while. No, they're looking at him going. Well, Yang get my major. So you get out to find another dude. And Francesco was a, hey, that's real cute. What you put on Sunday at the open, but I'm the one with the trophy. And I think this I think this latest little. Entry. That's cropped up is is nothing that, you know, not look at he's forty three. And he even said, you know, when the back excused, you know, you've got to look at the bodies looking for other ways to compensate, so let's hope that everything's gonna be okay. Because my gosh when he's in the field just another world. So I I wish nothing but the best victories aplenty for Eldrick. Dan, is it is a Persian in this industry in a big fan watching you call tournaments. I love when you're in the booth. I always get with hand on the next Dan did this crate yesterday did that great? But I will tell you to me one of the one of the best performances was when you're in your final tournament with Johnny Miller in a way that you guys did the coverage, and you help gather because I know that had to be tough for you to partner here one. What was that daylight for you with a partner you've had for so long and to what's it been like now for the first couple of ornaments Zinger into booth with you and making that transition. Yeah. The the waste management. And this is only day. There was Saturday felt like a build up of months, and it was because our entire crew with so much effort into that show and in Tommy, ROY our producer. We talked about it for months before that day. You know, what are we going to do how we're gonna handle it? I went through. And I said, listen, I'll hold my hand up. I wanna I wanna try to put together Johnny's best call city, which we did. But putting thirty years into five minutes is really tough. Right. And that piece because we we were running a little late on the air on Saturday wasn't able to run around a golf channel later on. But that was one example of the effort we put into it and all the guys that that wish Johnny. Well. And we were I was doing. Okay. I knew it'd be an emotional day. You know, when you're sitting next to somebody like that, you know, we're we're we're we're just great friends, and I know his family, and it's like you're losing a part of your family. Right. So you're sitting down there. And I I was like I was keeping it together. Pretty good in everybody's doing their little tributes. We're getting down to the very. And we sent it out to Roger Mambi in Maltese out there in the eighteenth fairway in what he said on on that final on that Saturday was so hard felt and Roger's been probably the guy that stood up to Johnny more than us as far as like, well, I don't know if that the right shot that looks like it's right to left me down here. Roger toys, kind of put Janis place. So I think it really kind of took people by a little bit of a surprise when Roger starts like losing it. But what he said was fantastic. And it was a great day. And I kind of lost it at the end just because of the the moment kind of grabbed me, it's all Rogers. So Rogers fall, I was okay. Until until that so to answer the second part of your question that I think Paul easing or as our our folks were looking for the best possible replacement, and there's no way you're replacing Johnny, right? But I think it all came down to the guy out there. Most like Johnny just policing name kept coming up, and we had so many great candidates that actually sat with me and sat with some other guys in our booth that were so good. And that that could do the job. But I think in the end they just thought Zinger is the guy, and it's been an incredibly easy transition. In in the first part of him replacing Johnny, and I think more so with our crew than we could have ever thought. He's just meshed right in. It's felt like we're not teaching the guy television. He's done a lot of right? It's still going to do a couple for FOX. But he's going to really be identified with us because he's doing a lot of events. And it's been a pleasure. He's so pumped up. We got out of the booth at the Honda Sunday. At Bay Hill wasn't the most exciting event, we got out of the we've got another booth the Honda, and he sits up, and he goes, I love this. This is great. He's got a passion for it. He loves her crew. And he preached the fact that he's kind of parachuted into a pretty good experience crew. So yeah, zingers been fantastic. You guys have great symmetry together too. Which is another thing that that can't be created that you either have that or you don't. So the fact that you, and as ING her you can tell the listener, we know you guys are actually having fun sitting next to do is you can't fake. No, that's and that's one thing that because you can't fake it people call you out on absolute and be like don't try and act like you like each other. Because I know you have never have you can't underestimated the audience that's one of the things that a lot of veteran broadcasters don't ever underestimate the people at home in how intelligent they are. And how savvy they are about what they're hearing. Because sometimes you can think you're you got all these stats and his numbers experience. And you think oh, you're talking. I'm the I'm the I'm the know it all guy. Don't don't go there social media. Now that they're going to tell you. You're gonna get called out how many times because you're very aware of what's going on around Jimi. Johnny was a polarizing figure in Gulf. How many times were you asked the question? Hey, man. What's Johnny, really like? Come on beyond. That's always how they follow it up. That was probably the thousand and thirtieth time. You just offered there. Yeah. He's he's he's he's an interesting guy. He's a he's a somewhat of a complicated guy. He, but once you get to know him, he there's not a mean bone in his body, and that might come as a surprise some people who've listened to his birdie astute analysis, and you know, no holds bar style. But he's a he's really a softy. And we got that at times when he would we would come on the air. And every time we came on the Sunday at the US open. Would we get the on camera? It's Father's Day. Happy Father's Day here with the seventy three champ case, you didn't know Johnny won the US open at Oakmont with three. So we will get to that moment, and he would just genuinely tear up. So he's a really sensitive guy. And but at the same time, he was the guy that took this took this business to another level change, the landscape or the way golf was broadcast. And I think he's just opened the doors for. A lot of other guys including Zinger including other guys that you hear brattle Chablis. I remember when I first met Brandel Chamblee, and I got into the business. He couldn't wait to talk to me about what Johnny was like because he says I wanna I wanna be that guy that you know, hold back. No opinions a guy that is never going to be afraid to give my opinion until like, it is and I think Johnny's open doors for him and others to differences between Johnny and brain Shambley number one. And Roger said, I think on the broadcast, which really it it put a lump in my throat, and it was Johnny Miller would be hurt. If he thought what he said hurt someone else. Yeah. And that's truly who Johnny Miller was even though people thought man that guy just says the same stuff and rubs people to wrong way. But that was a very true statement about Johnny Miller and number two, Johnny never blocked me on Twitter. Because he's not on Twitter. He wouldn't block me off on the other hand. He's ducking me. But I want to ask you something everyone talks about their favourite call that they have heard you make. But I wanna know what's your favorite call. If there's one call that you had that you go that I hate that. Yes. Yes. What you get into the business for you never wanna take away from the moment. You just went to enhance them. So far, what's your favorite? So I I would I would say it's kind of a two part thing because it's in different sports. I would I would have to go back to the Olympics and go to the second to to Michael Phelps as renovate gold medals in two thousand eight when we were in China and the whole it was the second his second vendor. Those Olympics it was the four by one hundred relay and anyway, it's people can go listen to it. But basically, what happened was we broke it down. And there was no way the US is going to win this metal because when the goal because Jason Lee's was behind this. Stuttered and France in. So he's coming down, the we noticed the whole things changing, and and I just rowdy Gaines who's just been incredible through the years. Talk about a guy that brings passion. Right. Single rates might God. So he's he's I we start noticing that this things changing anyway gets to the wall. And I I reach a level of my voice and excitement that I've never reached. And probably never will. Because my vocal cords get blown out. So we got so we got to the wall. And I said something like credible. Jason Lee's Ag in the end, the US has done in a kept Phelps as eight gold medal run ally. There was another race after that. But that one sticks out and swimming in the golf thing it's got to be Torrey Pines in tiger. Which was only two months before that was that expect anything else that was expected anything different. It's just it was just a an electric. You can't you can't script them. You can't draw it up you. It was like an in the moment deal. I was looking around at the crowd. And I was just kind of feeding off the crowd. You're looking around the crowd outside of our booth. I'm looking over at Johnny. And there was just this feeling. It's gonna make this. So I I said I. I expect to make this Janis expected to make it in the thirty thousand people they're out here around the eighteenth grade expected mega. So the ball starts rolling. It's kind of tumble on his poetic, which is pretty crazy. Just kind of came out of my, you know, the depths of my my my soul, so to speak expect anything different we happen to have a blimp on top right overlooking the shots and of the replays. Tommy, ROY just master was a mastermind of the of the of the replays afterwards. Took the shot of tiger looking up in the heavens with both fends. You know, when his yes, it's so this role is gives me goods that it's one of these moments that it just our whole team. Just probably had the greatest moment that I've ever been a part of with them. I hear some funny that picture of him from that bloom shot is up. I believe it's in everyone. But I know it's in at least. To the dick sporting goods golf bay. Really? They have it on their wall. It's like a mural on the wall. But it's the photo that's up there. And I'm in that photo. I'd like to get that. And have you sign that? That's the kind of caddy. Hey, we'll get you out of here on this one. Now, you've got a busy schedule. Are we allowed to ask you for a prediction, maybe me three? Golfers to watch that you like to win the players. Sure. This place is impossible to pick him as you guys. Go through the years. We've had we've been pools we've been in this and that and no one gets it usually I mean, I remember Roger Mopti in the back of the day picking Nick Price for like ten straight after he'd won it because God is a bull stuck or and he should absolutely win here every year and why he doesn't I have no. That's my mafia person dead on, but I will go I will go out. Tommy Fleetwood out there. He's kind of percolating trending right now. I think he's an incredible ball-striker again going back to Roger picnic rice. Right. I think he's an incredible ball-striker. I like Rickie Fowler on this golf course. I think he kind of is is kind of cut out for this place. And who else you hate to go with chalk guys? But Brooks KEPCO who's had some very good very good history here in this learning how to play this golf course what we talked about earlier with maybe playing longer Brooks kept. It could be the guy. There's three rooks loves the big moment. This is like a major Dan settler debate Peca their powers right now. 'cause we had the same top. We each had the same four. But. Really? Here's the thing. All of the players on the PG to a right this second. If every guy came to a tournament with their best game with their a game who's your top four while every guys hot top four top food. I don't have to pick out one guy. Okay. Johnson. He's number one Dustin Joe. So I'm ranking. Okay. When they've got it all clicking everybody got it all comes with his boss game. And they're at their best who's winning and then top because there's no doubt who my top two are Dustin Johnson ROY McElroy so Dustin one Rory to dust Dustin one Rory to or. Their their best game after that it gets to be a little bit of a of a mishmash. But you know, we we haven't seen it in a while. But Jason day who I think he's that good. We just kind of out of sight out of my Razzies than hurt. And he's never know. But I'll tell you when he won here few years ago that was a display and he's got the power any any the short game. Think about it, man. He's he's not no grinder. Yes. You know, he's down guy ever forget when ROY met one the US open at congressional by like eight shots, right? Who was getting up and down behind him for a second. It was Jason day. So he would be my other guy and then. But see. Justin thomas. I have one guy who's not neither said JD the one you guys pick. Jason. No who is your fourth guy that that. We did not. I had Dustin Johnson. I Brooks kept a second up yet. Yeah. And and just in Thomas. Yeah. Kept because you can't go wrong with any of those. Yes. When he's on beast mode, Rory one I still think he's still thinks ROY a game is better than everybody else's again. I don't believe it. Yeah. That's a tough one. Tell you the guy that is entertaining. Let's the who who gives the biggest entertainment quotient of those guys. I'll say roaring what he's on. No, it doesn't jets got the swagger. Era. It's a it's a greater tiger back into Mexico. Busy. Thank you so much for spending some time with us today. Hey, have a great call this.

He's also spent a lot of time on the LPGA tour and we're so a lot of collegiate players as well so he's got a great story. But before I ruined it for everybody Joe. Why don't you give us your golf story? How'd you get in the game? And how did you get to where you're at well. First of all this is like I think this is probably the longest time you and I have ever sat down in one sitting without being walking out the door and go okay this thing. That's in Golf magazine. Can you explain this to me please. Why this is the next phase as of what we're doing other office between lessons you know? And that's the coolest part is to come out and watch you work with all the generation of tomorrow morrow as well as some of the great players that are out there today playing on so many of the different tours and just Kinda. Watch the changes in to me anybody. That does a good job in what we do. You can kind of tell it on the player's face where they're like. Sometimes I won't say a word. Just keep wanting to hit more golf balls. You'RE GONNA Stephanie. Going slow down man and I'm like I'm standing back there non my head going you doing a good job. Join this so You know honestly Esley I. I had a chance a few years ago to do something with Randall. Mel on the Golf Channel and talking about my background and it was kind of one of those times it makes you stop and reflect and honestly when I was a kid our family moved to the fourth hole of a place called the Biltmore Golf Course in Coral Gables Florida And I used to sneak out there at night with you know club. My daddy cut down for me. Is More of the twelve thirteen year old. And I had to wait until the guy and the little cushman cart came by and told all the flags out of the hole. I knew I was free to go and he and I would sit out there and hit some golf balls and I just started loving it and I just wanted to play lie and kept playing and playing just like we all. Did you know had a chance to play some junior golf and go to college and then I kinda wanted to turn pro and I was the the quivalent of a really bad real estate agent. I'd sell one heck of a house about every nine months. You know kind of like yeah. Great paycheck can't wait for next week. Right back down and you know I spent about three years doing that. And kind of the fourth time I was going to go back to Q-school and oddly enough of course as we're podcasting here. We're actually in Franklin Tennessee. One place at the school. Every year was Murphysboro Tennessee. Because I love that old Fort Golf course and it was just so so much fun you knew. That was a good way to kind of hit head into the first agent through and as as going back to my four stage my one of my mentors. A guy named Joe Lopez junior who Jo's in his nineties now and he and I still keep in touch. It's really special. And he said you you ought to teach which that's the last thing every tour player here. It was like the best thing because it was the nicest way to say. You don't have what it takes. And he had played. The tour. Tate played the senior tour. And I thought Mr Lopez I just don't have the patience for that. I don't have the patience for my own game. I mean confession time here. One time playing on the firm and golf team and a qualifier. Got Six clubs stuck up in a tree trying to get my putter which I had thrown into the tree out so those last couple of holes were a lot more challenging. I think most people would but I had the opportunity kind of maybe where life put the man above puts you every once in a while to be in some interesting testing spots in as a kid. There's a gentleman who had given my dad golf lessons and he lived shoot. Maybe four streets away from us and and he was a good family family front and his name was Bob Totski. Oh yeah and I got to take some lessons from Bob and then my dad had some friends who are on the tour and I remember going place called Pell City Alabama and spending two weeks working with this guy named Jimmy. Ballard had years later my mom moved back to Orlando and she buys a town home home and she's excited. She's telling me about the the next door neighbor that moved in and they're really nice and she said you know we were out getting garbage cans. I chatted with him for a while now. He's instructor after I think and I I asked him if he knew mom nobody knows me. I ranked four thousand to the world at all right. Why asked him if he knew you and I told you you? You're a good Golfer. We're and I think he's an instructor sometime. Taller guy had on a kind of a Straw hat to the EPA South African. Yes David ledbetter asked if David delivered new me so literally. It's been one of those things to not only have had an opportunity to work on my own game with those is people but to kind of count them as friends or different acquaintances. You know what I mean. And later on his life is kind of progressed. It was neat to be able to go spend time on them and literally Mister Lopez set it up one day and I said you serious about that teaching thing and he said Yeah I said maybe I'll when do you want me to start. He goes you can have the office next to mind you start next week. And that's awesome and it was just one of those things minute identities like. Come on. Anybody could fix this. This guy you serious on the same thing and you're like man and all of a sudden I realized that people could get joy an improvement out of their game when I couldn't get any ad mine anymore and it was like you know this is kind of a fun journey an awesome and that's true story. That's how it's got there and I'm going to share one thing real quick. I don't WanNa take up all the time and I know you shared this with you but you know a golf lesson isn't always about a golf lesson. There's so many great eight golf books. So there's a great book called on learning Gulf by Percy boomer and it was like a two page chapter about him teaching this lady. They'd ever talked golf the whole time. It has nothing. It's like the favorite ever chapter in the book. It's kind of like so when I was a kid. I probably had had six lessons from Tosca at this point and I went back from my seventh lesson. You know how kids were hitting millions balls day and you know us even the correct rage rage ball. I paid a dollar fifty four it. I'm hitting it Dr Right Right and I remember Mr Ski Walking Up and I've just been beaten balls so long and I was like Mr Tachi for our lesson. I'm really starting to understand this kind of you know holding this angle and yet does make the ball go further and I can't wait to work on our lesson today. Just Kinda was muddling through my bag and finally stared at me and he goes news. You wonder what your listeners today son and I said Yes sir Mr Tusk and he said clean your blog and I stared back at him and he turned around and left left nate lunch. Oh Jeez I was like Whoa. I remember my mom coming out to get me and she said Hey. How was your lesson with Bob and I go well short? She said what did he tell you. I'm not allowed to say. Words like Pat. She said where is he. He's eating lunch and she walked up there I remember. She came out five minutes later and she looks and she goes. You can have your clubs clean from now on. Do you understand me. Yes ma'am to this day awesome. Go look at my golf bag and Utah. Lv a few party dirty clemens myself wrapper on it though. Give that story too but I mean that's I I think that's kind of like a lot of teaching roses. Journeys is that we've all kind of had that dream of one point to play realize the money to be made not playing for us because we don't have whatever that little factor is that allows us to make consecutive cuts win or whatever but you you've already nobody deal But you can't let into my question I had for you was who obviously Totski was your one of your first coaches and at big influence where he but who were in Ballard and ledbetter who are some of the guys at influence your coaching style or really kind of help you develop a knowledge for teaching and kind of like you know Sparked that fire for you a little bit man and that's you know I don't know maybe it was the way I was brought up Matt but you're kind of the same way of I saw people trying to go. I invented invented this. And you're like no you didn't for years so even as a young instructor it was always about you know. Well you know a guy like Bob Tosca to say this. So I I I never ever hijacked any of the information but I tried to take some parts that really seemed so critical to what those guys taught Tostki obviously was huge on the lag. Because he's like I hit the ball. Two point five eight yards per pound. Nobody else does that. How do I do it okay? ledbetter was one where I was like he immediately mmediately made sense to me because he was a tall lanky. Dude Body frames match up and it was like. Oh my gosh okay. I totally get this. The club goes back. Steve for it comes down more shallow and and for those of you who are listening and watching. That was about thirty five years ago. They did that and now George Jenkins doesn't go. This is the next phase in golf. And you're like it was great because I saw that article and you did too and even better. I've been an advocate of this for a long time and it's great to see even a guy like liber saying it's great to see that this is kind of coming back in so so how. How did it formulate? I tried to pick the pieces. That were the easiest to understand Ballard connection. How can you not get that? You can have your body going one way and your arms going another. I mean you. Can you just gotTa be really lucky flexible and you know I mean I kind of start to think about other people report Joe Lopez who was literally my mentor was he would just say the coolest things at times he would say. You know when you're playing good and Joe at played the a tour Jill's father had won the senior. Pga I mean just you know one of these guys wouldn't say much all-round go when you're playing. Good you gotTa make sure sure you don't get bored. I didn't know what that meant as a kid. I still don't know what that means Like he'd get to the sixteenth hole and you go. I have hit the ball. So well today had an even-par and he goes he got bored on tensor. Sixteen because you gotta you gotTa lighten it up you gotta you gotTa Kinda ignite you gotTa make a Birdie in there somewhere because when you really on and you're hitting a good good it's real easy to low yourself to sleeping next to end. I think you have people to and and please share you know. I didn't have a chance really to get to know Chuck Cook until three or four years ago. I started to count Jim Hardy as a great friend and I didn't get to know those guys but let me tell you something. They totally influenced the way that I teach. You know hardy. Just so within reason What would you do in this situation? And to hear the Teaching Summit Tennessee PGA a couple of years ago to hear Chuck Cook Talking go so the progression is basically basically this one a golfer starts. He destroys the club at the ball and then he learns that if he doesn't quite as hard he can hit the ball a little better and then any starts to learn about this thing called lag adds distance and then he gets a lot of leg. He's Zil almost get to the tour almost almost. He's this close close but the guys are on tour they learn they learn how to control the like. Sometimes they haven't sometimes they. Don't you know you're sitting on. This is all the other stuff you've read got. You just hear this big. That's the only thing I needed to take from today. So guys like and I've had a chance to spend time with them as friends and the coolest part is to go. You have no idea how you've influence fluence might teach. Mike Adams is the is the only thing that I have a lot of things I regret but in golf I go the fact that I never got to be kind of one of your disciples but I might come on advantage in a bounce stuff towards me all the time and I'm like Mike I count. You is just like a great friend but you're I mean his passionate always look look at what's next what's next what's next. It's he's never happy sitting on what he is. And it's c-can utley secrets. Great Secrets prodded me. He Goes Union. Learnt take a month off and just go get a club go get your wedge. Go out on the golf course before. Everybody's Aaron Go. What would help them? What what would happen if I put it off my back foot? What would happen if I put it off? What would happen right you know? And just and that's that's being around other guys like that is really really cool when that was my curiosity because like just from you know the time we've had to get working here for the last three years it's been interesting to me because sitting on your lessons. It's always been like my friends. Stanley showed me this. My friends secret. Show me that my friend Mike Show and I'm sitting there going. He's got so many friends. I just want to have friends like yours like it was so that's kind however my question is coming from is like you have so many great nuggets that I've seen a drop in your in your lessons and and you always do a good job of like you said You'd never created anything in the sense like you probably have some of your own little sayings and `ISMs and they're the mental coach Guy and and but you have. You always give credit to the coach. You're taking that idea from in the lesson to and you've always in that thing that's always something that I think. In my opinion the great coaches do because they realize like like this isn't new material right but this is applicable in like this little piece of pilot this tiny little p. due to right hand here of the short game do that and Indus try that and see how that goes in. Doesn't have to be like everybody stopped but it's just yours today. Like have fun with it. And that's why I always Kinda like Meyer with your tune-ups is like I may. I don't know if I could catalog all the different nuggets. You have catalogued in there in that mental rolodex. Why I count those guys friends because I promise you I will? We'll pay you back the money I owe you that but it is. You know it's it's I hate to say it's kind of like that Seinfeld episode with what is it campaign gold. It's all of a sudden somebody says something and your brain. Just you know you're taking it all in and all of a sudden your brain just goes. I mean the floodgates open. That's the important part of this. You know and that was something that Virgil through me when I was a young up and comer he's like when you're first getting into it. Everything seems like a Golden Nugget. Like everything's like all my guys is so cool you know now that And then they're like as you start to mature and you start to form you start to see patterns and you start to see like certain things recur then all of a sudden like when you go to seminars like all the things that keep showing up like well. Yeah I knew that. Yeah that makes sense and then like those little golden nuggets you pick up become like one or two like you said like you rip the sheet of paper. This is all all I need here for today. You know and that's was. SS Worth Will Matt your product of one of the great programs through the the GM universities Mississippi sippy state And one of the coolest things about that environment that I get to do is go teach some of those universities absolutely and and to me some of those golden nuggets come from the youngest freshest minds when they look at you and they got Mr. How wouldn't it be easier just to tell me to narrow my stance so yes it would? But wouldn't it be easier to tell me you know to point my right toe at twelve. AWW o'clock or one central. If it's you know those when you hear those ordinary things and you realize folks for those of you that don't know and I can't imagine can you don't know if you've listened to this before mad is probably as advanced technology and the science of the Games anybody out there but when you hear just uh of very simplistic comment go. Wow that would accomplish five minutes worth explanation on my part but then the good news is if they ask you you will. Why does that work? Then you can kinda. Here's why. Download them yeah. No and I think that's part of what we have to do is coaches in ever dive into a form on facebook book Pity you for jumping into those loopholes but But like I think what we have to do as coaches we have to understand what happens and then to be able to you relate to the person who doesn't care right. That's kind of like your average Joe. I don't really care. How form rotates I just WanNa where the heck? I put my hand on the club. That's what that's the way I enjoy watching us like you make it as simple. I mean I've seen some of the most simple terms come out of your mouth for a person to deliver a golf club on my man that seems easy and there's a lot more going on there but that person hasn't realized how much more is happening that might be from one of my prior job so you can eat that in or are you going to go on a super size that yeah no I mean that's and so what am I question for you right and and I wanna get into the PGM him and route two is ill. How did you get into because you was at the Horton Smith? Where do you want to the national level all right last year? And so you've been given back to coaches like myself and I think you probably came. I mean I don't remember much college days but if you you've been given back to the pros like me in going and teaching at these schools and not just you know state but all twenty some odd programs in the country now and then you're doing the faculty woody staff for the PJ for the guys that aren't in the programs are still trying to go through the levels. I mean you've done a lot. How was your drive to get into that? And what have you taken away from it. I say that's my my parents upbringing. And that's got to be that thing. It's like when you get when you set a goal and you get to where you want not where you're ready to rest but when you set a goal and you reach it you need to set another goal and you need to look behind you and help other people recycle and you know that. That just seemed like when I first got into the PGA like this is kind of something you know that. There's my golden. How do I help some others along the way and literally you and I both know every year we get our PGA pack and for those listening or watching? It's this neat little envelope. That comes every year sometimes about the middle December. It has zero bound. The has you're you're paying the calendar. Yes there are still a lot of old schools of us that we write all our lessons down but it used to come in there and they would have some other things on insurance and then they had application in there about the PGA Faculty and I went and talked to the president of our section at that time or the excuse me executive director was oh my gosh. I'm drawing a blank Jerry. I'm going to think of his name. He was in north Florida forever. Oh my gosh. She's he's GonNa it. Come to you like and a half an hour after we close the broadcast. But you know I said would you support me in this or would you kind of. He said I'll write a letter order for you immediately. He goes the not too many people want to do that. They want to keep seeing. What can I take from the PGA? And how he goes the minute. I see somebody like that. I'll do that right away. So yeah that that was key and then I got to go interview for it and realized it was about kind of a you got to be able to know the materials be have to be able to present resent them which I think you know. As an added blessing I've be- become a much better presenter from taking materials that originally originally started out on a black and white slide point in your like well this is. How long does this go for eight hours? We're going to lose most of them in the first twenty three minutes unless we lighten this up a little all cell right. That's that's helped a lot in that of course with the advent of all the other universities schools. That's been a big thing to be able to do that. And it's if if you talk to anybody on that faculty it is just so much fun. We leave with more than what we give them. And I I don't know how to explain that but if we learn something every one of them and you guys energized. John is the heck out of us. Well it's always fun being around that like that youth or the maybe not using some of the cases where you're going to teach PROZAC. been you know you haven't done the bookwork yet. I've been in business for a while but like that energy to be a part of something bigger right and it's you know being a PJ pro having that logo next game is kind of like a step stone as golf professional and for me like when I was a young guy. Watching all these presenters come through the PJ program you know it was always for me. It was like you know the the the things I always like you know. What was their story you know? Who did they follow like? I don't know I'm trying to go. See who they were following an learn from them. But like you said like I've I. I had my first opportunity to go back to Mississippi State in present and somehow got roped into to our class before that and then present it to the whole program for an hour and then did it now and a half dinner and I was like holy crap. Crap lasers seven hours at teaching. Wasn't ready for but the end of the day like you know you put something back into my you know in the Mi- cylinders about just you know reset it reset resetting my focus towards being a better pro right and I think that's the fun stuff that you bring an energy because I mean look me and learn office not the most fun subject. Well you bring an energy energy that I think is second to none because like I don't know like you must be injecting coffee straight into your veins or something because it's I I think denies you're you're right. They're like when you go to present. The energy you bring to. The table is is awesome and couple of other friends that are in that Alison Kurt and Jeff Smith or also on the faculty I self with the same people have that the ability to click. You know what I mean and and relate. I think that's what we have coaches right. I mean have that blew everybody. Yeah you you gotta get the other person whether it's a golf student WHO's there on the T. or PGA student. Who's there in the desk? You gotta get them to be able to open their mouth and share share some of their experiences. You know this is kind of weird. You and I got an interesting conversation yesterday. A little bit about because I know you do a lot more social media stuff to me which means needs if you type one line on social media. You're one hundred percent in front of me being there pecker on the keyboard but you know the difference between maybe a A person who teaches all the time and I think we were talking about rates or detonation. Then compared to the person who might be the general manager had professional their are there. Abilities may be the same. But there's there's different drives behind it and when you go and you go to these classes and in summer at the university levels and others are people who are already working in the industry you know right now the PGA were revamping the education a lot but to sit in a room and kind of go out of sixty eight people. How many of you really WANNA teach this game and five or six people raise their hand that kind kind of makes it a pretty elite area to begin with not elitism? But like there's not a whole lot of people WanNa do this and then you. I always ask the question. How many of you you dread that you're going to be asked to give a lesson someday? There's four or five that raised their hands. Yeah and the funniest part is when you get done with those seminars. Generally it's one of those people that don't WanNa give a lesson that will say the Golden Nugget in you go. I want you to know what a good instructor looks like in there like all of a sudden they go. We'll just do this and you're like yeah right I mean well and and to that point though is like when you're talking about having somebody so far away from that I've I've had a chance to work with Some advisors and mentors here in the last two months and this one guy. He's he's not really connected with golf much. He's got like the oldest set of clubs. Everybody but I have have an idea. I'm trying to push through to him and he's sitting there. Just lighten my Swiss cheese and just punching holes through it but to your point though. What he's he's able to do is as a golf pro? We sit there and are passionate to teach teach them co teach them pros or teaching other. Golf pros are passionate to be there and we're our like our faces like one inch away from our hand is how close we are to it and then to have somebody who's as far away from that as they can be they're the ones loans that could potentially give us ideas that were too close to see right. And it's Kinda late in the best way I can do about it. I have two kids now under three right. I can't be standing over one and and see the other at almost the end of the driveway watching them reopen down the street so I can see both and that's kind of the same perspective I think we have to have as coaches. Sometimes we get are knows straight up in it and they were so close. We can't see it you know. I think that's where that's interesting because I think that's where I've been learning here lately like like sometimes it's good to take that thirty thousand view perspective once a month and reevaluate what we're doing and so when you're talking about the new stuff the PG is bringing to us as coaches which is right. Because even since I was in school in my teaching mail was printed in nineteen eighty six than I was right. What are some of the new stuff that you guys are trying to teach to to the coaches now? That is different from yours pass. Well you know a couple of things and I think you and I know I think it's the fourteen the ball flight aalto. Laws Aren't laws their preferences. The nine ball flight laws. That was a really shapes and everybody gets all of a sudden into this literary quandary. You're wrong long married. I'm like well all you guys are leaving out the one and they like. What does the whiff with? The ball didn't fly but it was intended to fly and that guy's mind it was really intended to fly as right so a lot of the technology that's come about including the track. Man's that we've always talked about half and phase and so now there's a lot of maybe downward angle and eat we smash factor and all these things but we're trying to get you too. I know that's one thing. They talked about a lot in terms of the laws principles and preferences that we're teaching kind of a down angle and how that might affect i. I believe at one point. It might have been called the deplane right another point. It's the face capacity to help. This is getting complicated for a lot of because even the even the young kids are like look at still kind of is has something to do with where that faces point. And that's the beauty of this thing right science and everything so we're trying to it gets some of these terminologies that the younger professionals are going to see right away because even though the track man is a I don't even what is twenty. Seven thousand dollar hurt Brandel Chamblee. And and I will quote him on this and quote his retraction which even endeared him even more to me because I love the way that dude prepares for stuff but he originally at one conference said it was a thirty thousand dollar toy which did not make a a lot of people in the room happy but the next time he spoke to the same conference e quizzically looked out and he goes. I think there was a problem with the mic on the last one. I actually the thirty thousand dollar tool. That's very useful for. You could save and I mean it was great but there is you know. Here's the key. That is a very expensive piece of equipment and who amongst us as instructors new. There's a whole lot of people for goodness out. That are buying it for themselves. Well now they're coming to you talk in a different language right right and if you can't speak you and I know right away if we can't speak their language they're not. We're not gonNA help them now. All of a sudden they're asking you questions so we're seeing a lot of that terminology legiti and we're seeing a lot about the things that have been in there for so long including when you went through. PGA The way people learn. Yeah and I think there's the other part to before you go to the laypeople. I wanted to go down that route. There there's a lot more freedom in most pros share all these things that we're learning. That's been a big change since I've left. College is like instead of like some guy in California trying to keep his secrets because he's afraid some guy here in Tennessee is going to be teaching that client lion of his that somehow going to take from California like now all everybody is willing to you go to instagram or youtube videos of all kinds of stuff and now so now the information that's being shared is not just coming to us pros right and you don't have to be Toros together give stuff down either right you can just be like me. Just teaches teaches your average person in the day in in have that quality information now but then also your students or seen it because it's readily available on you do as though to your point you have to know the material and when somebody comes in talking to you about the relationship such and such and you're sitting there going. I don't know what you're talking about me night. That's not a good thing. There's and boy I'll tell you what and I know. You have a lot of variety of listeners. And I'm going to talk to the guys is who are golf instructors on this part the minute. You don't know something don't fake it does L. Vacant look and go. You know what I didn't see that poster. I didn't and see that piece on you know covering the left quadrant of the ball. Can we both look at that together. Because odds are were both going to get smarter. And that's I'll tell you something. Working working at the highest level with some of the highest level players. They ask you questions at times. And you don't know the answer and all you have to do is fake it once and you'll get called out on it your way better and and I'm talking about exactly what you're talking about. This is the beauty of it right. Now everybody's sharing the information out there and but when your student comes to you and says you know what is it about the Heliotrope Lex. You're like I think that's an ingredient sunscreen. Yeah do you determine it but there's literally it that is the that as an instructor and as a student that could probably be the coolest part of a lesson we're both view are growing on the T.. And so that is another thing about the communication about going. You're going to get so much information. Different genre it was called time management but today it's called time management because you can't possibly be everywhere and look at everything right. You got to kind of pick your battles a little bit about you and I were. I would say we're more positive give people And there are definitely there are haters out there. I'm not I don't know any of them but I've seen the post and I'm like man it just you get a chance to go. Hit a golf ball. What a cool deal? Oh you did it all wrong. It's the best shot they ever hit. It's all perspective. Yeah so that's that's been in part of it that the there's so much information out there so we're trying to help the next generations. Organize it manage their time and then learning how people learn. And that's that's is the most important part because you once you learn how people learn and you hear we're getting a little deep here but like going. Wait a minute. I thought golf products to fix light all the time I get it but once you learn how they learn then you and this is what makes a good lesson with you. This is what makes it good lesson with me folks in all seriousness on the other side of this. You have no idea the cartwheel's that we are doing in our minds when when these particular things happen you get through a lesson and you know that you said the right thing at the exact right time and there's a tiny bit of you turn around and go gasoline fist puppet. But that's it's as much an accomplishment for us as it is for the student absolutely. Yeah the hamster wheel in my brain is always running. But so you're right though about like when you deliver the message as a coach and like you know like my wife. Everyday I leave work. Can we talk on the ride home or whatever she's like well. How how'd you lessons today? Like I have that have that reflection moment. I run like every lesson in my head from that day and you sit there and you're like yep today was going yeah I killed it yeah a crush it and then there's Go home and research and stuff. Because I'm pretty sure I whipped on today. I want to go home and send this guy. No afterwards I I told you don't do that destroyed and you especially with as many as you were with your like because they not only they talented did not only do these swing the club incredibly fast. They make progress a lot faster than most players. Because they're just they're just into it and you're like I got to stop this kid before he gets so far down this road and that's it and that's what I was going to pick your brain about being out on tour and then we can dive into that now is so. It's always amusing to me when you work with different players. Because is there some that are like I. Call them like the exaggerated right like you give them like. They're super laid off. And you tell them to get across the line as far as they can to come matt suckers over their head in like straight up point right on target to first base unbelievable and I go back right. And then you've got the ones that are like they have the illusion like they're exaggerating it but and they made marginal gains. And so you know like those guys. We're going to be the ones that you're going to have kind of constantly pushing keep putting things in the way in and making them. Have that change. When you get out to the tour level and you're working with some you worked with the best you know Stacy Lewis and some of the also better LBJ players? What's it like working with them when you're trying to make a change because you're not just talking about improvement that point you're also talking about dollars you know and and so when you start to change there has to be a the narrow behind it at the end of the day to be worthwhile changing it? So how do you pick something the change and then how do you convince them. I'm to maybe exaggerate that feeling to make that change you know while they're trying to play like how does that conversation work. You want us that question again. I I don't know yeah real changes and maybe here's something that the average golfer can pick up real changes happen in the off season. They really they do when a player says I can't. I can't stand seeing the semi swing anymore. You know you're right. It's it's money and you gotta go okay. Okay so at some point. How could we start trending it in another direction? I mean I always I use the swing plane as an example you know so. Many instructors draw the little cone right there air and it's too upright it's too shallow steep. It's to whatever and Kinda going okay if it's too here let's make sure it's it's heading that way if it's too here let's make sure it's heading that way my job when you're out onto and I'm only using swing plane as an example but it's to Kinda go maybe it's takeaway you turning bring your body too soon as the too far inside to outside my job is how can we trend towards the middle and not jump to the other side right away because you know the minute you jumped to the other too far outside next thing you're too far inside and you're like this is going to affect their income. Sure Yeah and then on top of that the cat yanking like you whole lot either because his income is a little bit yeah his beer. Money's getting out there. It's much more about. Can you pay pay attention when see when they start to drift the wrong way and you know this and I know this as a player you get them to a position. Where they're they're very comfortable? We know it from our own games. Every player knows it from their own game. Oh cool I'm not crossing the line anymore and I love you know late. Offer crossing the crossing the lines. That nemesis that I've been plagued with all my life and I can remember Gary Gilchrist and Michael Haywood both worked with Allison. Walsh got the club done online. I remember walking over to her and a practice run in a tournament. I said I know we're friends and I know I'm not your instructor but I wanNa tell you something. This is a battle. You're going to have to fight all your life because the minute ah you go I got it and put it on autopilot. It's going to go right back where it was so the reason I'm using that example is when you're when you work with those players and they're really illegal. Gosh it feels so good. Now is the time as an instructor to kind of go. My job is to pay attention. The minute starts go the other way. We're GONNA throw some drills and things in there. Does that make accent. Oh absolutely in that thing that leads to like your. We're heading into that offseason outright. And I'm about to next week my winter program for the next four months. The seventeen got signed up to do this thing where hitting hard and heavy right and I think that that's a great thing to give to a bunch of parents that are trying to coach their kid while they're trying to determine terminus becomes hard so what our tour players doing all in the on season when they're playing off putting's offer a month right. How how do they? How do you make an a chain? Or how were they looking to address their issues. So what are they doing the on season in the on season I mean they they all of them know the part of their game. I'm that's lagging. And the funniest part is sometimes the part they think is lagging the caddy goes. It's not the driver. It's the wedges. Trust me it's awesome. I mean they're eighty yards away there in the first rough they can get the ball close to the green. It's not the driver. So knowing and they know it from performance they know it from the numbers and the stats that they keep and then it becomes. I think if you look like a Mike Bender or any of these other coaches that coached so many of those high level Gary Gilchrist one. I feel like I needed name. Every human being that's ever impacted me and they all have sub read it for every other coach. We don't mention. Yeah no obviously John Elliott. Who's like I mean? He's he always had sharpie marker on him he'd get more done with sharp market. Anybody I've ever seen as crazy but to watch what those guys will to Gary Crystal Start trying to get them to hit a different type of shot your drawing the ball too much. Let's face it. Why because this course and this course you're going to need some fades? Let's let's but he knows it's going to make a change in the swing. Mike Bender is gonNA come along. Go I have some new games free to practice some new drills for you to try. He's not going to tell them about changing their swing but he's GonNa Nego- okay putting. I'm not making enough birdies. Why don't you practice putts over thirty feet? Okay because if you can to those you're going to you're not gonNA make a birdie eighty but we're not thrown a stroke away and if you happen to chip one close on a par five we're GonNa make so during the season you see a lot of not necessarily tinkering with the swing. But if they're going to take her with anything it's the fundamentals I mean. How many if you had to guess she would say ninety nine point nine percent of the time you would go? What's the most obvious fundamental? All that they kind of. They don't necessarily overlook but someone comes to you and you go. I'm pulling everything I hope. So your aim twelve yards right you know and it's literally but it's kind of like a nun all of a sudden. I me as a great example last week down at the CME been spending a good the amount of time with Lexi Thompson. Who is an incredible human being and really gifted athlete? Just hit the ball so good and even her her dad add kind of look back at me and he goes. She's into low right on some of those isn't she and I go. Yeah but they're going right and it became one where the message essentially went to the caddy and it was like if you see when we get beyond ten yards start you guys start trying to pick a spot at five yards right a target. Do not don't straighten that person out. Because you know where that shot is going and a lot of I mean if it's a fundamental thing to me it's aim and if if it isn't aim it's ball position and boy those to get really interrelated when you start getting off line and it's amazing the number of amateurs that don't believe in that's like the two biggest thing tour player go sir. I like those two variables alone. Will Jack your world up so bad. If you don't get that right and and the ball position was the sneaky. One I think. Oh Yeah Right. Because that's the one that's like an inch back or an inch in each out. Whatever it means is that small little tuna wreck you you know one one of the coolest things you can do is go to a tour event and watch these guys and you'll just sit in the teen again? Why is the aimed at the bunker? and His caddy's had he's been back they're going aimed between the two bunkers and the minute the caddy leaves. He adjusts itself. Goes back there so yeah that is totally. That's something that you got to work on every day and that's what I tell. My kids like like when when they all the kids. I work with our spiring to go play on television one day right and it's really hard to get to that phase but I always sound like. Yeah it's great to go. Assume on the golf course might sure absolutely do that but go spend your morning on the driving range before anybody's really out on the track. Get their like seventy eight o'clock in the morning whenever the gates open and and watch these guys warm up and notice all the little idiosyncrasies all the little trinkets that are out there. Everybody's doing something to kind of you know like I don't call I call like it's just like a simple little like oil. Change tire rotation is real quick. We're not putting the Ferrari engine in a pinto when you were just going on there. We'll touch up. Make sure they know where the line is where the ball is dropping and they're going to go play it and I had the opportunity to to work with a couple of guys that had a chance to play for a while and that was one of the most shocking things that I heard was shocking bill. One of the things I've walked away from learning was at your when he would warm up on the range and he'd spent ten years out on tour playing. He said that he was so close to neutral. They like some days he'd walk up stand. They're aiming to target ball falls left. All right we're planning to draw today. And then next day goes I was out Bam hitting the fade. And we're planning to you today right and they don't know correct. No in this mentality. That tore players work the ball all like they're always making it. I mean I read this one. I had a tune-up with a guy who's atop avenue in the state and I WANNA learn to work at the other way whatever. Just show me Your Your Stock Fade Twenty Yard power harding slice is I call it. A fade unlike. That's US THAT'S A. That's a pretty hard slicer bro in so I think it's again it kind of speaks back to the difference tuna program like amortized. This envision like wanting to be able to draw backlift lag nate backlift. You're probably better interoffice hitting the military and then to Puttin we. We should write while I was gonNA throw three things in there but on that I note one of them is a it if you have the luxury of playing golf course. It's closed on Monday. They don't they. Don't put the flags in beautiful thing. Go play yeah you'll have the best day of your life when you absolutely will have the best day of your life. We'll just wake your brain up to go. Why in the world? I hit anywhere else in the center of the Green. And that's basically what faucets thing is right now. I mean that's I mean that's decade. That's what the the the old time players used to say from one hundred yards in us the length of the flagstick wherever that flagstick electric fits. That's where you're gonNA in the green one hundred one hundred fifty two flag sticks two hundred more three four. Yeah and and so I mean. It's a real simple the way to do that. But you know the warming up part. There's there's something that I've seen Stacy Lewis do and I've seen four or five other players do it and it's kind of one of those things that I'm always like. I don't tell other players about it but I kind of wait till see when it happened so a good warm up is exactly what you say. Seen seen what you've got that day and his stacy gets near the end of her warm up and she does it every time she looks at Travis and they figure out what club they're gonNa hit on the first hole. It's not necessarily a driver. Sometimes it is they pick a target out on the range. And then Travis looks in the book and gets the Yardage in the pin placement for the first par-three uh-huh and they hit that. Shot exactly a couple of PUTTS and then they go to the T.. I mean it's just and there's no surprise in the first couple of holes. You know you're kind of like what's what am I gonNA head on. What am I gonNA ahead onto in the first part three? What are we looking at? Its four and why might as well hit one of those again just so I'm familiar with that show and and that's what you people. Here Tiger Dune to write he'd always oh three yards and then Hogan said that he played thirty six every day right. He played eighteen in his head and then eighteen on the course and I think that's where a lot of a lot of kids I'll have to change mentality of like I needed. They have this mentality of Anita hit every shot perfectly straight on the driving range. The have a good day and I'll blow their minds. hands-off said look ahead three plus rounds where I have legit shanked it in the first ten swings multiple times and then shot sub seventy. Then I have absolutely stoned driving ring session and not broken seventy five. I don't put any way into my warm-up dude if you believe in carver you don't want to leave all those good shots out in the field right Years years ago having spent four five years with Juli inkster one of the first times. I've got to watch our warm up. I don't know she'd probably hitting her seven iron I and hit one of those little scooters scooters that they started to take a step towards her and she goes oh that she goes. Don't worry about that. She goes any great round. I've ever overplayed shanked the ball on the ranch. That's awesome nearly all of it and like hall of fame. That's the next thing she says she goes. I figured that chuck out into the Hall of fame. I'm I'm like that's awesome way to look at it. You know you're talking about kids and there's there is a lot of pressure on kids and as they learn different things. I want to bring something out here. Real quickly that I've noticed and I noticed it in the good players and I actually had a chance to to complement lexi on a ton recently. I said you have tremendous patients. She's like I have no patience whatsoever and I know there is a different kind of patients that good players have and when you're talking about doing when things in the swing and May in this Kinda ties into how do they make changes out there. It's like give me a tiny little bit and let me see what I can do with that right. And when I'm when I'm good with it I'll ask you for another tiny little bit. I mean I've watched stacey do that on her takeaway and I mean you know you might be talking about the first twenty inches the swing. She's he's like give me the first this far. And let's see how we do on that you know and it's kind of like once you get comfortable but the good players when they need to make a change of when they need to tweaks something they will just take the smallest most manageable part and go. Let me see how far we go with this and not that other players onto or not good players but there are some that Oh okay I got it now. What's next right got that too now? What's next can we get to the downswing right and you and I both know there's some gelling that takes effect act when you change some things on the back swing test water? Yeah and all of a sudden folks this whole thing is over in about one point eight seconds. And if you're spending your whole time thinking but I've noticed stat over and over again with good players who continue to get a decent score out of their game and go you know. And they're looking. There's nothing wrong. Some people make a year long commitment. Go this is is GonNa hurt. But I'm going to change it. I'm going straight Mac O'Grady or I'm GonNa do this and but I mean that's your job out there and if you gotta go the good good ones seemed to just take enough medicine just to kind of get a taste. And let's see how good we get an ED. I think sometimes parents in juniors. It's we're all enthusiastic theatric. We want the next step but Kinda go now's when your stats in your track. Man's and all the other your force plates. We're still making a difference here at still getting better right. When you see that go stagnant you might go? And now we're ready for the next difference between looking at a short term development long term development. Ramey like what's the with kids like what's what's the end goal like is there and Golda playing high school teams in goal to play on TV. And if your goals to play on TV then you can't be worried about this summer. Like that is does not matter. It doesn't matter if you play golf or not if you're going to try and play on TV because there's plenty of guys who didn't and don't play it vanderbilt. We're here you know. They're playing on television. So I again. I think that was a great little nugget for the parents out there. As you know one little thing time let them see where it goes because you never know also what happens when you poll one nugget out of domino chain how that's GonNa affect the chain does keep going forward or is it. Stop you know the flow of water or is it just like a band aid over. Something need stitches. Or is it pitch one things going to change and what they could change six things you just don't know I heard Now murder the rambling part. But it is. It's all talking about juniors and and we've mentioned folks we've mentioned college a couple of times and boy you WanNa talk about this. Summer isn't important for you. This summer may be there's is always the perception on the side of the high school player in the High School parent. That this this summer is vital or this tournament is vital. Four your own. My Gosh the coach from Kansas State. And then the coach from East Tennessee. You're going to be at this tournament. I had a player that and it was just the coolest thing because they came back and they said I blew it and they said I I know I didn't blow it but I had the worst cold and she's like I shot eight shots higher than I always shoot. She goes I just. I couldn't she goes I. I barely made needed around for two days. And she goes. I know I blew my chances with those coaches because of what my stroke averages and how I've been playing and Tuiti I got a call from one of those coaches literally twelve hours later. WHO said I am more impressed with this young lady? Now then what a stat shown the fact that she so I guess what I'm trying to say is how you handle yourself at adversity or not playing your best day. That might say way more than Oh. I won the southern juniors two years in a row L. completely agree limbaugh and Allen over here at Vanderbilt. I mean I've heard it from multiple coaches that. They'll they'd rather see. How do you do when you suck and then can you grind grind out around? And don't let it turn into an incomplete implosion salvage around and keep it whatever sub seventy five or eighty. Whatever it has to be to keep that coach entertained compared to what you normally issue but you know they if you can show them you can grind? And they'll dig it you know. They're always about that They have a long term. Look at it is this person GonNa fit into the team good. Are they going to inspire the rest of the team to go guys. Somehow I got in the clubhouse. Let's go back out there. And make sure that jared gets right. Yeah yeah so what was what's been one of your more. I mean obviously probably have a lot of favorite experiences from running around the LPGA for so long. What are some of the more memorable moments you've had chasing the lady pros out there? Well I mean there's there's a couple of them and I tell you one of the well there's two what am I remember years back onto where we played in the what is now the La Open. Open and I think I was the Kea at that point and there still is a key that we were played at city of Industry and had so much rain that night folks. It was just what I say. The place was underwater. I mean it was really underwater. Modern Day we kinda basically had to walk around a whole to get into the driving range and I remember Stacey was working on something on in her backswing and it really. You know I mean it was starting to take shape and you know just for those of you. That don't know I I mean you know. We do have a required uniform of khaki pants and a white shirt. Not Really. But I'll be darned if you don't see us out on tour and that's what most of us are wearing except for David Waylon who is johnny cash is when brother he just doesn't realize it. It's blacks I always look at the bandwidth black pants and black shirt and you have on Tuesdays Pants with Wendy sturt uh-huh and it was just soak down there and I had this little drill that I wanNA stacey to do warming up. And she's got her seven iron and I I love my parents at my shoe is a maybe three inches from the ball. All right just take it back. It'll be fine. And she goes okay and she just flushes it. She looks at me and she goes. I don't know if I had to stood there and I go. What kind of lame pro by went and hid behind your bag with an umbrella takeout ready claiming there you gotta put yourself? You'RE GONNA put a little bit of your own skit in that game and you know there was. There was one year that sometimes when the pressure is on you learn things and the the. US girls were playing the Solheim Cup in Colorado Club and Stacey literally had flown over and that was literally they flow from the British Open. And it's the one where she had birdied seventeen and won the British open and literally folks. You're you're just. You're just looking ETA player and you know what I'm looking at. is she lined up properly literally. I mean you're looking at someone at the top of their game and I'll never forget this. I said well I'll kind of scoot over there and I'll see on the first tee and she goes no no she goes just walked bridge with me so they had a bridge for the like they do in the PGA Championships in the open. That the contestants walk over to get to the I T and they kind of walk under the grandstand and we got over about half over the I T and she looks over at me and she goes so. Do you have any advice for me. When I can't feel my hands in about three minutes uh-huh I go? Yes see if you can find your thumbs. And so she goes okay. Sure so we walk over there and you know Kinda sucks to the caddy and whatever else and she goes up and she's just rifles this ball down the middle and I'm kind of hiding over in the corner and she literally looks over at me sheepishly. She put the driver in the bag. And I get the two thumbs up signal thumbs. We literally we chatted after the round and she goes. How did you ever come up with that? And I'm like Oh honey that drop straight from heaven. I didn't have time to just said the first thing they find interventionist Finest right there. That's exactly what it is but it's those little things where there's a nugget of gold. IBM At some point. Why I think that comes with coach? Somebody for I mean how. How long have you been statement? Seven plus ten ten this year. He's ten years and that's just kind of goes back to like the. It's the long you you get to work with somebody. Then we'll get to know about them right and then he started to see like the little the lazy Sunday she always does when she warms up on the Rangers. They'RE GONNA pick that up right or in like you the US coach. And it's kind of like when I tell parents is like because I tell them I look. I don't know your kids. Was You know your kid but I'm telling you right now. I'm seeing something right right now. That I haven't seen him be doing I would go ahead and just go ahead and go ahead and get the autograph pen ready because the things about you know or like they're just right there and like I've had. I had a kid when the the state junior right and for three terms in a row before sub seventy round leader in the clubhouse waffled second day as I do your right there. Just keep kicking that door. It's GONNA come in. Just keep doing it and I can call him. He's a he's just so frustrated. You can't use it hasn't gotten it done yet. And then like doc goes out win by six five hundred some crazy in in all my this is this is your moment. I knew I knew it was coming right. You need to know who's coming. That's why that's that is huge. Because the best players in the world they look their our goal is to win. I mean underlying. It's a you know they they all say the same thing. Just give me a chance right. I'm not GonNa win them all but get me in a position where I have a shot at it. That's what their workers every very rarely s white him just lead wire-to-wire. That's a very rare thing but it's it's about. Just keep putting yourself in position if you keep. Britain knocked down. Just keep Joanna Klatten said something one year and she's one of the longest drivers evers out. There she goes. I don't think the goal of this whole thing to see how hard you can hit it. It's to see how hard you can get hit and get back up and I was like where did you. What book did you pull that out? Because that's but that's that's really you know you're GonNa win the goal is you just gotTa keep getting into position. And that's the more that that happens and that's you know there's the motivating thing for parents is to go there. If they keep getting a position. See person that one. They've never been in position. They one might be a long time before to get back into position against right so we look guys like that. have been on tour for a long on-time right in in in ladies. They've been on tour and they just keep getting these top twenty finishes right and they're just habitually there and it's it's the column Montgomery's he's never winning a major kind of fill for a long time to write. It's like if you just keep hanging around it. As soon as that floodgate opens then the lids popped off and all of a sudden. It's ooh I knew this little thing to win and it can do that. Something silly it is totally something silly going. I need to go for one less than around or yeah I need to. Yeah Yeah I mean that's getting yourself in position as what the best players in the world definitely do it and so talking about the best players you had a chance to be alongside with the Solheim Cup squad a couple of times and you get to be in those situations in in watched the literally the best women golfers on the planet competing against each other. What's that arena like compared to like your average toward a I was feel like appellate secrets here? But I'm not because it's one of those things in. Oh Gosh where was it was in des Moines and we were. It looked like we were GONNA win but it was kind of a little close and Paul I remember walking down the sixteenth fairway and with a Stacey Gerena Juli inkster and and you know it's kind of cool to be able to be like right in the middle of the fairway and Paula. Creamer was playing that whole and the cabins are allowed to walk over and talk to them and so Polit looks at her and she goes to Julie she goes a what do you got for me. She goes duly still extent. She Goes Paula. Give it your best goes. That's it that's all you got and she goes all right. Then give it more than Your Best Austin. It's almost to see someone crackup under what was clearly becoming a pressure filled situation. You know from that standpoint if it was such a great finish almost right to the Solheim Cup this year but Marina. Alex who who's a vandy student and worked with a guy named Ian triggs right now. Who's WHO's great friend and I had the pleasure of working with marina for many years through school? One getting out on tour and it came down to that you know that final hole and it was her and Suzann Pettersen is anybody that watched it knows. Suzanne knocked it up about eight feet and after it was all done. Suzanne made the made the pot. But I remember I chatted with Marina after that and I said I can't tell you how proud I am of you. I said what you did to take your wedge after Zan hit that shot and step up there and knock it eight eight feet just like she did I go. That is all those years you spent over on the little short game area at Vandy and she looks at me and she goes Joe. Oh I have no idea how he did that he goes the weirdest part is I remember. Thinking one thing that you'll he told us in the locker room is you will pull things out of your game this week that you'd never know you had and you won't know how you pulled them out of there and she was like that was clearly one of them but she goes. It gives me something going into the next which she didn't India. I think she was finished. Top live or whatever she goes I got I got a whole take here. I never even knew existed why that was going to become. I'm on my questions for you is like when you know because you know you've been around when they've been there for the first time and he's been around the veteran's who've been those situations and you hear about how getting getting on those teams can maybe push a career. Oh my gosh. Yeah so what. What have you seen from that side of the game with getting those players that that opportunity eighty to represent the US with the red white and blue? It's a whether it's male female whether it's amateur or professional when you're playing for your country. There's I I don't know what goes off at your head but it is like this is really important because it didn't have out be anymore you know. And you're like you got this other little flag-waving guide and your shoulder going. Don't forget and so everybody wants to give it a little bit extra and they don't want to take it and I think what tape fine and those players find is that pay more attention to some of the small details instead of trying to be better than they are. They don't WanNa take anything for granted and it's a small detail the thing that all of a sudden they take back to their regular game and they go you know. Let's let's key more on this on the par threes. Or you know that as you well know that a oh Gosh alternate-shot who's GonNa call it opposite ball and alternate shot l.. Literally is you're playing for your country and you don't WanNa make your playing partner mad. That's right I mean it's literally I. E Tiger filled twenty years ago. I mean I used to play an are the PGA matchplay championship. alternate-shot was a team thing. Yeah I forget I opened up talking about Mr Lopez. My mentor and I'll never I forget we're playing at longboat key. And Somehow I had the distinct honor because of the way that we chose of hitting the shots all the par threes that had five par threes that we came to the last. That's when he said no son you've left me with a bunker shot on every one of us and of course after I hit it I said well I wouldn't watch half the hit any other shot. Mister Lopez sorry left you and another bunker but practice yet so you learn kind of how your standard stock shot holds up when you realize that can hold up under that pressure the pressure that you're on under two or you can rely on your stock shot a little bit more Britney al-Tamaari who was unbelievable. You WanNa talk about a girl that could put the lights out of it. I mean to watch and watch how she handles herself and literally. Who's been a very quiet person? You can see more four of her demeanor and more of her persona open up. And it's I mean it's it's an inner confidence builder that is it's Yeah I don't know it's great to go watch because it's just a throng of people around a hole in a minute. There's a shot that's good or bad. It's if you're over in Europe you get the deal. I don't know why we don't have a song like that. Hey Hey goodbye. We're the champion anybody but yeah there's something about that that kind of solidifies what it's all of a sudden those players realize like so the way a plane normally got me onto this team because they look back and they go. I didn't think I did anything super special over the last couple of years. I was a little better at what I did tripe up till now and that's great points so who who's on the tour right now you're working with or your Around that you think people the LPGA Theodore who who's not known yet but that we should keep our eye out for. I tell you there's there's some of course the women's amador on that was down in Augusta so you had just an unbelievable finish Jennifer Cup show. Who's always been a great player? Maria fosse she's real and she's spending time I had the opportunity to That's one of the coolest things about that term and it seems like somehow David ledbetter and I get to walk along nine holes because our players and practicing together and he has been working in with Maria Fosse and he says her greatest strength is the thing that I've got to control. which is the distance that she hits the ball and it is it is folks folks? It's you WANNA talk. You WanNa see a young lady that can hit a ball that really kills it. I mean you've got players out there that can do that and have been able to do it. The LEXI Thompson Joanna Clinton's the my Gosh Laura Davies Watch her hit a ball and tell me you're going to take fifty bucks out of your pocket a buyer. Well you might be able to but hers is still in the air. But there's another young lady coming up and Van Damme from overseas about six foot tall. Just just almost an Ernie els like build swing and there's no question that distance on both the tours is incredible but uh to have that asset on the. LPGA is one of those things. Yeah if you've got a good wedge game and you can. PUTT PUTT outside thirty feet. You're you're GONNA gain strokes. Sierra Brooks is another one who has come up through the University of Florida ranks always been a very good junior golfer Lucy Lee. You're going to see both of them on the symmetric. Two or odds are one of them might get a battlefield promotion. I believe if you win three. You're automatically Kim. Kauffman was was one who did that one year. But it's it's it's pretty neat out there that game you and I talked about the game and you know at at some point. It's neat to go. Watch the avengers in the superheroes heroes play and for ninety percent of us that might shoot in the eighties nineties. I've I always kid but I'm always standing next to that forty year old guy and the gallery who's been dragged to an LPGA event against his will my junior and they see this little girl hit the ball and they go. Gypsy hits at pretty good about two seconds later and they go. Oh wait a minute. She's playing the same teams play and went by where I went. And all of a sudden there's relevance to go. Tell me how she does it because if she can do it I can do it. L. Female thing it's like she's tiny and I'm six foot three and if she can do that I can do that. Trend you're like oh now you WANNA learn you know and the thing. That's it's always a museum is like the The lady golfers man they what for for the guys bomb they hit it all over the map. The lady offers dude is precision. It is is is a joke. My wife was a pretty good collegiate Golfer. In is here with her on my you hit your hybrids hit your wedges like it is ridiculous how Australia you hit the nail hybrids in in like you go wash the ladies play and I've been a few LPGA events it's just never found me. It's like the guarantee bash like just put it down comfort to sixty down the middle please onto the next one and you're like how did they always find the center. It's and I think that's where Like Women typically. I've taught them. They're always wanting that like they're always picking at that little extra bit of information they WanNa know a little more resig is. I just don't want to tell me what I need to do. Yeah you know and I think that leads into that atmosphere where if you WANNA like go watch somebody. WHO's actually? I think much more crafted person with a golf club. Bob Go watch no. Pj Van because they're going to hit it ten times better than you'll see a tour player hit the nets. I would say if there's if there's if you wanted to talk to swing fundamentals. They do everything they can to have senator contact right they have to they want to talk about club fitting. They will do any possible thing they can to that club to get another yard out of it. The last thing they will do is literally try and swing harder than they know they can control right and you and I get to the scrambles things we played every once in a while. We really need you to go with this one. And you're like Oh boy here we go runar for my game three holes later. You can't find a fair fairway. You can't do any of that. Might be not related. Still can't find for waste but But I think that's where I think the the ladies game may think it's it's such an interesting arena now because we're actually has been because you can find these like little Alexa Thompson in her. Name's leaving right right now for the girl that was like thirteen and played in the US. Open be have some of these younger talent. Lucy Li yeah. Yeah yeah it has to be his younger talents. Show up at such a a younger age than compared to the guys like immense golf you. I'm sorry I don't care how good you are. I mean there's that one kid right seventeen I think who's got part but he's like another accession but he's not really contending. He's just out there with a women's game like Pe- a lot earlier than the guys do and you can have some legit talent Ella sixteen years old fifteen years old that you're out there going. Oh my God how are you. Good this fast and they're hitting their hybrids closer than the other players. They're hitting their eight. This crazy Roese man. And I've I've said before for the women's Game I you can absolutely have a funeral. At fifteen sixteen years old can actually go out there and compete because the way we develop developers in our adolescents ages. In forgotten like you just go ahead and park that. Wait until your mid twenties. Don't try and chase down early seriously. I mean isn't it weird. How that that phenomenon has stuck throughout almost all the years we had like Michelle was kind of like the first real big name that when she was thirteen I think was when she was is the public's champ in how she wants something else that year and then she started making her waves on the LPGA tour and then in my opinion was she got off along she could hit three hundred yards and people like why should you plan in PG events to? And that's where I think crashed in my opinion but it's a humble one but you know she was one of the I. I think that made a big splash on these little younger than me. Still you know. And she's like it's crazy. It's still young just got married and you know right now. Her physical stature and well-being is you know. is she going to be able to come back. And here's the coolest part about if that happens She got to a point in her game. uh-huh and I can tell you this from walking along side her and her caddie at KPMG and she even talked about it she goes. I love this game I really I love this game. I want to keep playing and I don't want my injuries to hold me back. You know instead of saying you know I mean it's like it was different. You know it's like yeah. She still wants wants to win. But she's like I love this game too much to not be able to play it and Athen. That's you legally Bernhardt longer. O'meara like what kind of fire is is in that news belly that he's sixty four. Eighty threes. Unbelievable shape are ridiculous as buddy sixty seventy more than me the other coach here at the club in when when you have a player that it's more than making money as about proving someone's themselves asking you got some of that's dangerous in my opinion because then it doesn't matter you know who's who watches or who knows or whatever it's like this is for me. I wanted for myself. Yeah Watch out. What is a a Matt knows? Here we have the privilege at the legends course of having a gentleman. Come out probably for so praxis. Three times a week Lou Graham. Oh I'm trying to get him on the podcast doc asked to. He's Lou is lose another one where you just sit and talk to them and all of a sudden it just a five minute conversation and you have. I'm writing that down. Yeah I mean Ed. Donahue Lewis Nineteen seventy six. US Open champion grew up here in Tennessee played a little nine hole course called the Vinnie links. I mean in your like he's out there I mean. And what's interesting is the prices. The Mos- is frigging chipping and putting yeah. That's always doing. Yeah and I've watched I've had the pleasure of watching a heck. He's asked me to see what I I thought you were asking person for is right now. He asked me that when I came and I thought I'd be better just to go. I would keep wearing that shirt with those pants. That's right right. I mean he talks about it and he other jokes he says Joe he goes Outta love this game all my life so he loved me back a few times uh-huh but I've loved it. I mean he's been on a Ryder Cup. I mean he's I mean I'm hopefully I can get him on the show too because it'd be another great conversation of you know a different generation but man. I want to be back there. Working the board on that I'll take notes for both of us are so before we wrap this thing up. I always get people to give us something to go home with breath. The show drops Friday so we usually give something to think about for the weekend. Was something that pushes you along or maybe you help us to help push your the players along. What's a little motivational? You can give to the listeners. Today Man Anat now now you caught me on the short one here man. I wouldn't what what are my dad used to always tell me. Don't count minutes. Make the minutes countinent. You know in some ways of always kind of looked at that on the Gulf aspect of it and I'm like don't count your score ahead of time. Don't count the birds you're going to have ahead of time. Make the shot in front of you really really count and you know what just for fun when I have players that have been struggling. I give them a two point scoring system. Money shot you know. And then maybe it's a higher level but aided the shot not end up where you wanted it to you get a point for that and be. Let's say if it's a Dogleg left and you're going okay. Well I gotta hit a little bit of a drawer. I gotta I gotTa make the ball turn left off the tee. Did it turn left. Yeah turn so far left at went into the woods of Hey. Would you still get a point for that because some of your shape so it's always kind of being liked. I tried to. I needed to hit this one high and get it over the tree. Why hide and one over three but went over the green? You still get a point. Don't I mean I just get a participation ribbon here. I want you to know that in every shot and now we're talking. PM Lind stuff but you gotTa have planned right and you gotTa have a result. Maybe the result turned out. Good but did you did. Did you execute your plan where you close you know and so sometimes maybe you kind of look at that and you go well you got eighteen points for or you know whatever per hole or you in you know where I'm going yes. My Math is scored high on the verbal clearly. But you know what I'm saying and it could even be on pot but maybe picked one or two shots a hole and go man man. I just WanNa make sure I just lag this down there when he knocked at six feet by you. Didn't you didn't follow your plan. But so part of it is can. Can you get a win out of something when you're out there absolutely nothing. That's great advice in in. You know I was actually having this lesson of the kid yesterday. I'll see you know. He's tried foreign bullet low and and going right. Ah Let me and I want to the highest hook. You've ever hit in your entire life. I walked the face dead straight failed. He's like what I'm like. I want to Hook and and you just hit it straight. He's all Giddy. Because I know we hit it straight. I wanted to do the hook and he just six Charleston Road on screws. He looks at me he goes. I still haven't hook yet. I'm like I'm well aware but I think it goes back to like a processing plant thing. I think that hits the nail on the head absolutely perfect in. It's so easy easy to get lost with golf where we've hit those perfect shots. And then it hits the Sprinkler head and gets host right and or hits the edge of the green one yard art left and it goes in the water verses one yard right. It'd be six feet you can't control it and why Tokyo's you can control everything up until the moment you hit the to touch it. Yeah then it's then it's all hearsay from that point you're spectating along with everybody else. Nothing to get worked up about over that and I had A. It's about you're not in control but you're in control of your plan and you're in control of what you want to try and happen on that shot and if you're in control troll that you're on a better course to hopefully influence what's going on. That shot one of the greatest shots I've ever seen and just I think this is worth adding in many years ago trying to qualify for the Tallahassee Open. Well that tells you how many years ago it was that whenever I had a chance to play with the individual and he had just come from China and I'm GonNa leave this guy's name out of it but let's just say this guy is played in the masters you want enamored and he was just a really good guy any we're sitting in the fairway and we kind of know the number is three unders GonNa and he's sitting at four and he said Man I'm so tired he said I gotTa tell you something I said what he said. I don't WanNa play this week. I'm beat man. He said you rectify took a nine iron learn. Wouldn't reach the Green Mike Berry face of that trap. Why can't give you advice but I go just hearsay that I reckon that might be what's going to happen happen? He took a nine hundred buried. It right in the face of the trap had a chunk at once rolled back in a trap got out made a double. Bogey didn't have to play. That is the best shot I've ever seen. You called it. Okay do it. It's amazing 'cause that's not what we're encouraging but as hilarious but Joe. I I appreciate you taking the time to sit down with me today and chat and I'm glad we got a chance to do it.

That's the nba playoffs. Game cody alive for the built ford tough studio vulnera- size in gregg giannotti. It's boomer and geo on the fan simulcasts across the country on. Cbs sports network. And wherever you are on the aussie app go wednesday morning. It's soupy out there today. Say foggy humid summer. Cloudy sort of malays as cbs. Sports network is put up a picture of what the city looks like right now. My goodness been cloudy day after. Cloudy dave to cloudy day. But i think we're gonna see some sunshine a little bit later today and throughout the weekend. Yeah the all star game last night. The only thing that anybody cared about with the all star game it seemed like was how much they hated the uniforms. So just another one of those things. Where a story bigger than the game baseball takes over baseball. What stephen a smith said about shohei ohtani more interesting to people than actually shohei otani and we get ready for a second half with the mets and yankees to see where they end up. We'll have some fun today because there's a lot going on when there's not a lot going on in sports tend to laugh a lot. Good morning boomer. Our are you go. There is a lot going on. And it's and it's unbelievable that it's already here and it's hard for me to eat them fathom. Where has the year gone. Where has the year gone. where has the year gone. We are in july. It is july fourteen. Yeah thousand and twenty one. That's right so where have we been for year. And how fast as gone and for me for you for me. My granddaughter turns one year. Oh my goodness relations is one years old today. That is amazing. Believe that i did not know. I still camp believe it. I still can't believe that it's been a year. I thought she was three months old. That winning right. I think she was close to a year. So i just i just wanted to start out by saying happy birthday to my beautiful daughter wonderful and That i cannot believe that it's been a year and all the things that have happened in the last year incredible. Yeah there's been a lot of stuff. Both good and bad for our show is but a lot of good. Oh without a doubt and tremendous good. It's been other shows around here. Not so good but for us. It's been it's ridiculous absolutely spectacular. I but i was just thinking about that this morning. Coming in like it's been the here. Yeah and it's almost like it's been a blur. I isn't that the theory of relativity is it that the whole thing that the older isaac newton thing. well i thought it was albert einstein or is it connectivity. That's i'm right on. Einstein ups okay so the theory of relativity. Is that the older you get right at the time that you experience is seems shorter to you because you're now on the back nine. No no applying into a larger samples of psychological phenomena. It's not the theory of relativity. Okay stein did say that. He said as you get older. He proved that time in people's minds passes faster because it's all relatives. That's why i thought it was a theory of relativity. That's not you're looking at me like a crazy person. I'm telling you that. Einstein said this. I remember reading about this. I will bet i will wager. That einstein said something like that when you travel close to the speed of light Then time moves slower for you and if you travelled out of the speed of light came back then everybody knew would be debt. Okay all right yeah. That's not what i'm talking about. What i'm talking about is when i think boomer is experiencing bright is that time is flying. It has as he's getting every year he gets older. That's all right. That's what i'm trying to say. So this this year of winnie. As compared to the first year of goner in sydney is a feels a lot faster than it does feel past. But then again you know we've dealt with a lot of stuff and being born in the middle of a pandemic and the twenty twenty year and everything that went on there but just to think that her hockey team has been in like two eastern conference finals and she wasn't even a year old yet. I mean i don't know what the hell my hockey teams going back. But she's already experienced to eastern conference finals. sure have through the pandemic. dad's played like a every year he plays. It seems like he's in the play offs. For god's sake so what's the big party has got to be a big party. I was just one year old best deal birthday party today. Best deal i think. That's what's the best deal i. Sydney said something about steel day. Your best deal revolution and the french revolution. She's having a french revolution themed party. Whatever that is good. Bring those bullets the same colors the french flag you go. You can bring those promos but anyway. It's it's an hour and a half party you know 'cause she's gotta get gotta get the that's it just an hour and a half. Yeah i mean that's that's about. It seems like it's about it. Yeah yeah. I was at a one year old birthday party about a month ago. How long did it last. It was a long time four hours. Not it's not going to be a four hour party now. They had a bouncy castle. Not happen the size of their backyard. No that's not happening. It was not for the one year old. Yeah right but when you invite all the kids you gotta give them something to do. Yeah you know it's gonna be sticky and hot and all the stuff. So i think they're going to try to be relatively quick and take some nice pictures. Have some good memories and then i can go play hockey. You have the right off. The one year old birthday party is a is a big deal. I of course it's a big deal one hundred percent. It's a big deal. What's the next big deal birthday party for a kid because it's not too. I mean five ten. What's the next big one. Twenty-one i i kind of remember them all being big. Yeah i know And it's really up to the parents to determine you know how big they wanna make it and you know i think one is huge and then probably i would think five and ten and sixteen and twenty one. Sixteen yes sixteen. Big one is like the driving thing. Yeah that's when i get the turn sixteen and sixteen one of those things that like parents is like when you turn sixteen. I'll let you do that right. So it's Yeah it's been but but think about everything that's gone on and sports wise just a last. Please don't have everything awesome. Like i was trying to kind of heart. Metalized all of it and it's amazing. All the things happened in one county your joy fourteen. Th of july fourteenth everything was condensed. It was crazy it was it was coming at us fast and furious as between march and you would say july. We really didn't have much. That's right we had some golf. We had some nasty car I think there was some. You have see fight island stuff. There was that right and then all of a sudden everything came back and we had all at once and then. Finally i think by this year later this year late this year you get the nhl in the nba on a regular schedule. The nfl really was on a regular schedule. Most of the year last year we had a couple of hiccups in air and things that happen but still pretty good and major league baseball. This year has been on a regular schedule. Show have all four major team sports by the end of this year being back on a regular schedule which is great. Yeah and we're right in the middle of now a baseball season which questions loom as to which what are these local teams going to at the trade deadline. And how are they going to try to improve the team. Could you see in some way shape or form brian cashman. Just you know recognize that. He still has to stay competitive because his fan base is going to demand it and he's going to have to look at his roster and say okay. These are the pieces that i i'm going to have the trade. I'm going to be able to replace. Let's say they go after. Trevor story from the colorado rotten. Because i think a lot of teams are probably going to try to go after him he wants to be a free agent wants to leave their Their their general managers talking about you know when we're not in a rush to trade them we don't have to trade them. We can get a compensatory. Pick for him if we lose them next year. All these different things but depending on who is going to be. I guess the most frantic in their search for a difference maker because he would definitely be a difference maker. you would then see that glacier towards we'd probably packaged in san out somehow someway you have to look at. What whatever they have in the minors. I suck right now. So they they would. Have i think that if they come out of this thing. Let's say they lose three games to the red sox suck right now yeah well. They've got eight of their next ten against it. So i look at it. More out of those eight okay. So you'll lose six out of those eight then then then you're blown. Lean yourself. I i think you have to blow it up but i mean they win six out of eight depending on how you win those games. No i think depending. I think you just if you win. Six eight against the red sox the to against the phillies that jammed in between the two four game series. But i mean if you if you win six eight of the red sox against the red sox you split the games against philadelphia then. Yeah i mean that's sit around and that's what if the opposite then. Yeah i think you've got to sell isn't like everything in these next ten games i would say yes and i would also say that if we get the competitive yankees that we saw in houston ahead. A one player mountain that had a a shed green meltdown. But if we see that that team that showed up in those games and let's say they win six out of eight as opposed to losing six out of eight now all of a sudden then. I think if you're brian cashman you're really looking to tweak and get something going here trying to figure out exactly you know the players that have trevor story would be the player. He would definitely be the player. Then you'd have to figure out what you're gonna be doing with labor torres. Is there a market out there for him and you know should he be a second baseman. As opposed to shortstop like a million questions like that that have to be answered. That will be answered relatively quickly here. Yeah i just wonder how for the yankees have to fall out of that wildcard because it division is just right now not looking great as we know so i mean how many yeah would would certainly help in a major way. By how many games do you have to fall out of that. Wild card for brian. Cashman to say we gotta sell. We gotta do something different. Here i'm also when you're talking about potential changes at the end of the years of first time in a very long time we've talked about. Brian cashman maybe not being the general manager of the yankees. Aaron boone of course has been feels like. He's been on the hot seat the entire year. Does brian cashman at that point. Say i'm gonna sell and then pumped the rest of the season is you know. Aaron boone's contract is up at the end of this year. Yeah yeah that into the interesting column as well. Yes so. I mean you're going to get a a ten game stretch. That's going to say a lot. About what the rest of the season is going to be for the yankees. I just wonder i. I don't know if there is a situation in which the yankees are gonna want to sell in who they even selling like. Think about it. You would think that aroldis chapman we one of those guys that you would sell. But who wants him right now. Nobody a glare tour is still a young player. I mean i guess you could say you trading labor toward you. You're not trade aaron judge. We've had this discussion. You giancarlo stanton's nobody's taken him. Who is the guy who. Who are the people that you sal. So it's it's not that easy. It's a very because nobody thought that the yankees would be in a situation at the trade deadline be selling off pieces right and yeah you know so july. Thirty first is the trade deadline And the yankees have thirteen games. Obviously the four that you said against the eightieth red sox the to against other fillies but they also have three against tampa in this little thirteen game. Oh so tampa. After those red sox phillies red sox than tampa yes and then the trade deadline and then the trade deadline. Yeah so the trade deadline's. The thirty first and their last game against tampa in this little Y thirteen game. Little run in their in their Schedule ends on july twenty okay. it's even more severe. Yes then i thought right so you have you have eleven of those thirteen are in your division against teams. That are in front of you. And i i i you gotta believe that this thirteen game little run here will determine because it comes right up against the detroit deadline. This is. This is it. This is their season. Yeah you'd think of course it is. This is not just one pitch one game at a time. This got thirteen games to figure it out. We suck right now. Yes you do. And if they i mean i just can't imagine that they approach that trade deadline even if they have in those thirteen games worst case scenario they go three intent that they're blowing the team up. You know what i'm saying. There were six and forty three four and a half games out of the top wildcard spot. They're gonna blow the team up like what would blow the team. I've long team up with would be trading. Aaron judge would definitely be blowing the team trading gary sanchez torres torres. Though i to me those three guys that you would end up in some sort of trade package to bring somebody else in here but then again. If you're if you're thinking about trevor story as your shortstop at the future how much you paying him in a new contract. Sure i mean. And then you add the stan contract and then you had the garrett cole contract is a trevor story hypothetical analytics gurus on their game and they better get their act together to figure out where you can find that you know that cheap cheap player that The mike top men's and the fords of the world save your seasons. Yeah like the san francisco giants when they went out and talk me whatever. But you know you know what's amazing in baseball is that you see these teams and like you'd never expect. I don't think anybody expected. The red sox were the giants to be where they are. No i'm you go back and you look at all the preseason prognostications and there's nobody that had either one of those teams where they are right now nobody and then all of a sudden something happens. They find their games. They win certain games last year they would have lost and are they all that much different than they were last year or they just like in a role right now where they go out and they expect to win baseball games guy teams like the yankees are just scuffling along. Yeah and last year was a very strange year for everybody. So i mean i don't know if you want just toss it out completely but it was a very weird year was less than half of a season. Maybe it's alex. Cora maybe maybe him being back then came kappler out there. The great gabe kappler with his coconut oil spreading it on the entire clubhouse and save go. It really is amazing when you think about it and you think about those two teams and where they were and where they are right now. It gives you hope but but you're team sucks. San francisco's in a division and of course with the giants now the other the other looming question over major league baseball is going to be whether or not we're going to see the return of trevor bauer. Yeah that's a forty billion dollar pitcher. That's basically been sat down and said you're not playing we figure out what's going on here and for all you baseball. Purists out there that have had the the ulcers over some of these new rules rob manfred said yesterday that the seven inning doubleheaders are probably not going to stick around the runner on second base is probably not gonna stick around. They're not going to be around and the other thing. They have to get rid of his the three inning or the three batteries for the pictures. Yeah i don't hear people complaining about that as much and also the shift they're gonna look into eliminating shifts all the people out there that problems with that the look into all of those things but next year there's gonna be a work stoppage so none of it matters right. It doesn't it Expire after this year. The cbi so there'll be a work stoppage strike and we'll talk about that and people hate baseball and take a major. You know it's amazing. I just walked my word. I don't think people like francisco endure garrett cole. You only way it's a work. Stoppage is if the owner stop it. I i don't see the players striking. I can say that i do not see the players striking. There's hey hey each other. I i understand that but the players also hate each other as as evidenced by getting the spider attack them. Yeah josh donaldson of the world's shore. I wonder if he's available. I do they is. I believe is available. Well he'd be a good met. I agree oh yeah that would be tremendous show with boomer esiason in gregg giannotti boomer and geo boomer and geo on the fan and cbs sports network. So the one year old birthday cake for winnie going to be best deal themed is. That would be very insane. Well i know that when he technically hasn't had any cake or any sugar or anything and i think today's the first day of same thing with sabrina. Yeah the first time she had it. Well you remember okay. So it wasn't that long. It's like a big deal. It's a huge deal. But you gotta make sure. They don't go berserk for no pace sydney. He's got this thing on lockdown she. she's been unbelievable with winnie and has had her on a special diet scatter sleeping than a special routine the whole thing. That's what rolling fast. She's got the winning on fasting happy. Of course only time when he cries which takes a bath a little bit because she doesn't like the water and rise won't you comes out of that bass. She's from giggle and laugh at trying. This not better than a happy so she guests have a little cake today for the first time for the first time. Welcome to the good stuff winning. I tried to get her. You know. I took a car bell but didn't work out. I got slapped around. Said no i have to take her by myself. Yes can not take the mother with me. Yeah well the grandparents are always the ones who give the kids the bad stuff. That's the thing the ever bad stuff doesn't make sense does it. But you know what. I'm saying not to be healthy stuck your parents. Well yeah and also louise by author is she's always hiding pastries and then we see sabrina eating stuff that i would. I've never seen in my life in our house like there's a ding dong rapper in the garbage. I'm like ding dongs stuff. You don't can doughnuts every day. Show up at the house. I cannot wait to take her to carville. Full-on full-on yeah. I figure it's a couple years away i think. The full-on car relics one hundred percent. You gotta share that as boom pa. Jerry you're up at midnight last night. Listening to wfan was why because joseph's team had a game that didn't start to almost eight thirty all driving back in the car and you had it on Something no i was listening to. Sal yeah oh you couldn't sleep so you put the radio on a did. Did you put the radio on to try to go to sleep. I was trying everything but sales entertaining and turned it off.

But i got a text message from somebody that said maggie just thanked caroline distracts ski at the end of the show because she was a guest on the program. So i don't know now. She's on there. They gotta talk about the face sitting. Is that why she was on. I saw the description under the podcast has talk about her. Mlb all-star experiences. So who knows she works for. Mlb network yes. I don't know she doesn't know she works for some sl. Nope no bleacher report. Yes okay an off shoot of bleacher. Report is an offshoot of bleacher.

Teddy bridgewater be their quarterback. And at this point you can know what your plan is and you would think. But if you could get aaron rodgers and think you'd go get rogers that was manning on mlb network. Yesterday's he had his imprint. All over this of course being in denver Yesterday and for the weekend and for the all star game good he lives out there and I would figure that john elway would have been all over the place he might have been there. I didn't see him on anything though. I guess i guess peyton moved out there when he took the job with the broncos. Okay very good. I want to get these Couple of calls before we break.

You want to tell us who you are. I can't just in case one of my friends are listening. But i think this is part of. This is part of the cleansing. You know you got. You gotta tell us who you are. You'll never know. Yeah i know that embarrassed but you but you said that you felt that you'd never problem with that. Well i did. Actually it felt weird saints publicly. It was. It was the first time i've ever said it publicly it. It's still right now. It just it feels strange so like like anonymous you are. You've been hiding this all your have. Yes indeed. I have been the only people who knew were my parents and then i just i told all my friends i said did i because i told i was so confident was gonna pay. Everybody passes it. I told him i was like i'll be driving the next day and then i failed it and i said yeah. They cancelled my test though so pissed so they said it for like next month and you finally came to did. I just finally told this morning. See this is why. I had never heard of anybody. Failing the drivers because we're gonna lie. Yeah because nobody's ever told me that. They failed the drummer of course and they probably had failed drivers and we are all hiding that secret. Andrew in wapping. here's falls. hello andrew. What's up guys. I might have been the only one yesterday that heard the interview with. Jj sister first of all before. That moose was telling a story about. When he was a gas station clerk with the wanian man drove up to him and offered him his sister most declined but then they had the interview and first of all. She was talking about pete alonso. He wanted the own run derby. Yeah and her peter. Lonzo and alonzo fiance. They all went out to a bar afterwards. Three of them. I guess alonzo still and his chain on and they were drinking tequila and she did address george. She had a one on one interview with him. But it was like fun stuff like what kind of music they play in the clubhouse stuff like that so there was no sitting on faces. Discuss none at all. Not one time was reference not in her personal interview with george and not in the interview between moose in maggie and jj sister not mentioned. Want an andrew as a listener to wfan while you were listening to this. Were you expecting a sit on your face referenced during this interview well i had they don 'cause Honestly i finished listening to a podcast. And then i was like eight minutes from my house so i didn't want to start another one. I like summer. Mary concern i understand. No but i sweet spot where it's like. I don't wanna get into law me just understand injury. Yes i've been in the same situation loose with the clerk man and this guy he was like with the wanian and went the wanian high roller. Hey do you want to take out my sister. And moose was was like yeah. He's fifteen years old and he's like Why would anybody picked most to go out with because he apparently he has strong with the wanian features driver recognized. He wanted to set him up with the sister. A hey thanks man. Yeah yeah sting. A really interesting. Hagia coal hoffman. He's talking to him right. Okay all right. We'll talk to him next. We'll talk to offman next all we do have to give away. Some pete. Hoffman is the producer of that show. And i really wanna know whose idea was to put on jayjay sister and not ask about sit on your face. It's the morning show with boomer. Esiason and gregg giannotti bloomer in geo boomer and geo on fan and cbs sports network. Okay we're trying to get to the bottom of something so we were introduced to john. Strip st Jj after doc. His sister on twitter instagram. Because she would ask certain yankee players to sit on her you could fit on so yesterday. I got a text message from somebody that says. Jj sister was just on with moose and maggie. And i said all. I that's really interesting. Like i guess that they asked her about the whole. Sit on my face situation and then we find out that they didn't ask anything about the sit on my face. I mean i mean. That's like having larry david on and not asking about curb your enthusiasm. I just don't understand why you wouldn't ask those questions. So we've gone to the pronin that program well Pete hoffman guys running the program. And as you've said several times. Pete likes to shoehorn himself into the radio program and you crowbar crowbars. My wordy crowbars himself into certain segments and pete joins us now. We woke up for this a good morning. Pete how you feel a man and by the way. I'm late because i was getting into an argument with my wife. If if your wife ever asks about her highlights how they came out and just don't stay strong. I guess it's a bit of knowledge. Okay too strong. Don't sell it. Say he don't say strong to the white. Okay very good all right so a peach trying to deflect already this all right pizza you produce the show yesterday. Yes yeah that was great. Show fantastic filling in for carter roberts's okay. So who was it. Your decision mussa's decision maggie's decision to have carolina's strengths on the program. It was a group decision. We solve all the pictures. She was tweeting. Now who's hanging out with with stanton saying i would judge and alonzo wadi. She's going up at the drinks with the math. Or it's like i wanna know. What type of beer. Pete alonso drake so you said you will. You thought that it would be a good idea to put her on group discussion. We kind of all talked about it and we all at the same time like hey she just come on someone in this group. Discussion pitches the idea to put her on. Like so like me. Al and boomer talking about aghast and you did you see this thing. One of us has to say well. Should we put them on. So who is the person that said should we put her on opt. I'll take it head you'll take the hinder was a you. Hit the take. You wanted to have a guest on or not. I did but i think i think maybe moves. Maybe maybe originally br threw it out there and i just went along with his most. Sorry we got okay very good so moose said let's put her on now. Did you guys discuss asking her about her. Sit on my face stuff. Of course we did you. Have you discussed it now. What i was rolled on. Why was the decision made not to ask her about the sit on my face stuff because in discussions off air with caroline she was very Deflected she asked multiple times. Please don't bring that up. She mentioned hasn't come on. I'm sorry you gotta be. You gotta be tougher than what the hell are you guys doing feed you. Tell me you've been around sports. Talk radio you got a popular. Mma podcast you seem to know what's what so this is a this is somebody who goes on social media puts all of this out there themselves and then when it gets broadcast to a larger platform then wants to run and hide with it. And that's probably the only interesting thing that she's got going on and then she says she doesn't want to talk about that and you still put her on talked about. We start talking about the red sox video with the kids. That was fun right good. Yeah but that wasn't what it was perceived to be an initially it was perceived that a karen was you know karen a stereotype for middle aged white woman screaming at you know ten year old about the yankees red sox which would actuality wasn't what it was so she wanted to clear that up. I'm sure because that was supposedly good natured listed. I know we wanted. We wanted to pressure. We not pressure but we did want to bring it up. I know we had maggie. Really want ask but i kept on saying we can't do it because caroline over and over and over i felt bad. So that's on your right. That's definitely maggie. Wanted to ask about the sit on my face stop and you said no well originally we were all into like. That's a great idea. And then when she came back so heavy that was mu that was kind of like i just she just really wanna stay away from it and did that point. Did you say to yourself that. Maybe we won't put her on. Because that's the most interesting thing that's going on here. I thought she was still good anyway. I thought she was fine fun. I didn't listen to the thing. And i won't now because you didn't talk about sit on my face. That's the only thing that's interesting. See pete. don't you understand. I mean you're a consumer of media hanging out with pete alonso. she's burke who cares if she's hanging out with. Pete lonzo really interesting story that she asked pete alonso to sit our face. That's the question is the question that is the question pete. Not what. I d eighteen alonzo. Drake it's was the the asked her face that's the question come on you're smarter than this just sharper than this often. I war i know you are. I know you are but you sorry. Peers right exactly to respect. That was part of it like i. It's a little bit risque and refilling in on the afternoons we have a new program director. And let's play. It safe was one of those things. Timeout let me ask you this question. Let's say carton. Had roberts were doing the show and she came on as a guest. What do you think the questions would be your right okay. Same thing here. Same thing here. But she wouldn't go on those two shows. That's the thing because there were no sit on my face question okay. Do you want me to booker for you. Guys won't come on here absolutely. Not if she's telling you what vehemently that she does not want any sit on my face questions. There's no way she's coming on here or with the alvin she send you an email or something about this chernoff. I mark chernow is night. Did not get that email. But it's still she's still tweets the the an acronym is that what is the hashtag. Yeah she'll still tag. And i keep get suckered into her videos now because she had video out at all star weekend where a rod and all them walked past there and she was walking past there. She didn't yell anything at them. She didn't ask that question. she's getting you. You're stuff though right now but that only works a couple of times when there's no more questions i'm out right. The only thing we're interested in is the sit on my face. It is a fun game to break through in this business. She broke furlan now. She's riding from and then asking us to like pull down. Our content is. That was the other thing like we had to. The moment of the day had to get ripped. I remember. she worked here. But i didn't have any idea what she was doing. Until you guys started playing this stuff so yeah she broke through. Then pete hoffman and his crew. Didn't even ask about it hells. That all about was Pete how was dove during this whole thing. Was he on the on board with the sit on my face questions or not you no he. He doesn't really take part knows no. He's not no content decisions from dove. Kramer it's more about what what type of cereal. He's eating the cereal. of course. of course those are the things that he is interested in. What is he going with these days. Is it a checks type of thing. I remember he had special k and he brought him. Reese's puffs kenya last week and she had reese's puffs suffered. Wfan all right. Who do you have on today. Do you have a guest list today. Half bryan scale brady brandel chamblee. And maybe albert breyer. Okay all right. Yeah the alpern caroline. Yeah no albert breer. Seems like a boring guy hoffman. Don't don't ask. Brian scholar bring about basketball when he's on because now you don't do any of that. Youth albert brewers interesting to you off. Go good come on all right. Who is that you wanted to put him on. Are you putting on to kill time. No we don't kill her we. It's a five hour show. You normally do a four hour show you put on albert breyer in the middle of nothing going on doing it to kill time. I don't think you don't think you coming on today. But he's po possibly okay now now now. Probably not scallop still doing that. Terrible podcast and nobody paid attention to for odyssey scallon pounds. Yeah he's still doing every week. Whereas where can you find the auto. He's the odyssey insider and wanna see insider but he's he's doing that scallon pals podcast I don't think so he's not doing that. Is you still get paid the same salary as he was getting paid for this gal pals policy it'd be the insider because they have under contract and they gotta make them do something right now. Okay all right very good. So they did they ask you to put him on. His shows. Sure they ask so they. Somebody asks you to put him on your brian guests. Everybody's a good guest to you. There's a there's a mime out there. That's a good guest in your eyes for christ sakes. He's figured he was going to be on in the afternoon. All the guess they have they are doing the afternoons traditions partner. Robert show they have a lot of guests every time i can put it on. The guest is a guest on right exactly in the in the half lunch. You do the half lunch or it's outcome dinner now. We go out to dinner with off actually do like that segment. Because he does recap what goes on on the radio station which is good. I think yeah which shows its foreign. We're supposed to have fun. One hundred percent ski about sitting on faces and players everything else. Geez that's why it's going to be like my like you'll fall asleep on air moment g. No no no. It's not but i mean if we didn't like we wouldn't be talking to you. I've been the end of you. Be trashing you behind your back. I mean that's what we'd be doing but didn't like you want to give you an opportunity to respond. You've done an okay job with. Yeah you've done an okay job responding. I didn't like everyone of your answers. I listen i'm trying to be you know politically correct. There you go. I stay away. That could be a little bit. You're straddling the line. I understand what you're doing but you also understand who you're talking to. You're talking to now. The grand poobah the grand poobah has been through. You know the war's here at wfan and now basically you know sits in judgment of everybody is yeah my my war. Steve somers on overnight. So now i know we both worked for steve and they were very much wars. Although i enjoyed working with stevie didn't hate me as much as he hated all the rest of you guys for wherever he's heard all right very good off you did it. You did a decent job in a tough spot so You coming in what time you coming in today. Around ten thirty eleven all right. We'll see there. You go the the highest guy poor guy. He gets thrust into this thing and is that really his fault. You believe. it's his fault if he did not object to the we can't ask her about sit on my face when she's on then he is part of the problem. Yes then it is these part of the pro. I don't know if it's solely on his. But he was the one who had the conversation with her off the air. She was adamant about the no. Sit on my face talk. Then at that point he's got to say oh it's too bad right. They'll take care. Hope you have a great. Get ahead of jose canseco hangup moment. Yeah right but apparently maggie did want to ask about somebody else. Hang up on us to hank haney. Maybe hank haney that did not go. Well hung up on us. The the caddy. Yeah well you know there because he made all the money off tiger woods and he wrote a book tiger woods. Yeah and he objected to some of the question. Yeah i mean what is what the people these days. I mean right something. You really need to be asked about it and why you wrote it hang up. I mean what is this. Like some skies. If you're going to be attacking me on this book that's the absolute truth. I'll hang up when you right now. So you start respecting me back by goodbye. No back bunk right exactly. Yeah no of course. No naturally i mean put. Why do people do this. Where they they put something out there right but then if people don't react to it in the exact way that they want to then they tell you you can ask questions about. I don't know what you would if you especially. If you're writing a book and in that book your attacking people you have to a imagine that the questions that are going to be asked as to you are going to be wire you tacking people in old by the way on top of that if you go on and address those things and you have. These spirited interviews. That's probably going to sell some more books as opposed to hanging up like a bitch. That's not going to sell any books right. Oh that's true. Boomer do remember. This is becca story. Neil sadaqa on this radio program telling him boomer assizes or no indication. Yeah i'm a serious musician here and just try to bring a little bit. I say nielsen dacca's he's still alive. Neil sadaqa was at the voice of a dead man. we just heard. Is he still alive. Somebody co i to say. He is eighty two years old good for. Let's get them on today in brooklyn leaks and broke out perfect. Let's put on today. Try again miserable unhappy people. It's unbelievable i don't remember what he was. Promoting did did not enjoy the experience and they didn't ask them a question that that kind of caught them off guard. I forget what the question was a serious musician. Trying to sing with him. Or something All right let's take a break. Give sports minutes with kiki dee or something. It was elton. John john all right boomer and geo on the fan. Cbs sports network in the odyssey. Seattle meals tobacco also sung song without john bad blood berry legs under rated all right. We'll get eddie emptying out that brain of his aides the morning show with boomer esiason and gregg giannotti boomer and geo boomer and geo on the fan and cbs sports network. So i'm gonna take you through. What happens behind the scenes here in these breaks. And we're coming to you live from the ford. Tough studio is a boomer will turn to his right whereas computers. When we're not having a conversation we talk a lot in the brakes. But if we're not having a conversational turner's right and they'll be reading stuff and i just hear grunts displeasure through like What happens when you hit sixty. And sometimes he's got you know the glasses on and take the glasses off. And i'll put them down on the desk. Do you have your glasses over there. Yes i do. I'm gonna show you exactly so this is exactly what goes on here. Omar you guys need to people on the radio needs to sorta imagine this. I've got the glasses on the end of the knows. He's looking at the article on new york post dotcom and he goes puts his head in his hands and he's he's just a totally despondent there for a couple of minutes so i decided instead of him being upset. Let's talk it out by my granddaughter's birthday. You're not gonna be miserable knocking to make you miserable. What i'm trying to turn you around a little bit. So let's let let's get it all out. So i think we should do boomers negative headlines of the day so the things that you were default will not performing grunting about negativity in the break. Can you give me a couple of negative headlines. Were reading this morning caught on video and burned with unknown liquid in random attack in midtown. No and they have video here in the poor guy gets something dumped on him and then of course they go through all the people that are around that area and they can't believe this is happening this. We can't have this happened in the streets of new york yet. It just continues to happen. I can't believe tap by far past. The i can't believe it's happening right and then Jennifer angeles is all over it. Oh cbs too right and she's doing a great job in reporting on it and everything else. But meanwhile nothing's happening. Nothing's happening okay. That was a random attack. Just a person. That's just walking down the street right not some sort of revenge and now the according to the report it was just a random like just a and nobody knows why a shirtless man who was wearing a mask by the way would go and dump some liquid on an unsuspecting passerby. It's clearly a mentally. Ill person who is looking to cause chaos. That's yes i think so then the other one. I have to find that. I was reading that i couldn't believe that There was a group of people that were going on a a yacht cruise from maine all the way down to florida. The bahamas okay. I think that happened. That sounds like a great trip and of course they ran into the storm. Tropical storm of some sort. Their boat capsized. And stop right here. Okay how do you think this story is all right So boomers reading this. He goes oh man so you just you just hear this. The boat is capsizing. But it's not the end of the story. Because i heard him whisper a couple of things after this while he was reading it. What do you think how this story ends with. These people here drowning drowning right. So the boat capsized and they drowned this boomers bad headlines. Mad libs type of thing. You're alright Eddie how do you think this story ends with. These people are sailing from maine to the bahamas. Run into a storm capsizes. What happens shark attack. Shark attack okay. Very very good Once you tell everybody how it ended three out of the five people got eaten by sharks. Yeah so eddie. Bingo very good. Oh i had a price for you give you a price. Yeah which is which is a very ominous thing and they were supposedly on this. Beautiful boat capsized in in foul weather and then one of the people that fell off. The boat Unfortunately cut herself so there was blood in the water and the sharks started to you know. Come around like sharks in water. Shortstop wasn't water blend. Sharks are coming in and hammer heads. yeah i don't know if they were hammer heads. I guess yok school hammerhead off. It sounded like it was multiple. Sharks could have been great whites shark. They don't really school. I'm gonna have your glasses one more time. This is how i knew was the sharks. Yes this is. This is what boomer did when he was reading that article. You went like this goddamn sharks. I'm just it's it's amazing you can come in here and you can get yourself caught up in these things i know you do. I know i do. That's why you need to keep me distract. Yeah so that's why we need to be talking sports with no no no. He's drinking or what. Aaron judge is doing during the home. Run hitting contest. I did see another video from pete. Alonzo's night out. Speaking of that. Were they shut down a bar that he was in trying to celebrate the home. Run derby like it was closing time and they were like all right. That's it we're closing impede alonzo's like what i just got here. Yeah but it's not new york. You gotta know that. I guess but i mean if you've got the guy just won the home run derby in your city in that bar. Just they open a little longer for him. they've probably at the red lobster. Something who knows. I did have i cool ball around the stadium there. What a match. I'm sure that they do. I mean it seems very very cool city over there Speaking of mets and partying the mets thirty for thirty things coming out like a four part series on the eighty six mets again eighty six all know about the i know so we all grow mets fans. Fun loving team. Yeah too much fun i. I don't think i can absorb anymore. Eighty six mets content. I don't think i can do it. I think i know everything that's ever happened with that team. Eddie your that was your wheelhouse. But i have stayed away from all of the stuff. I have read any of the books. I really have not paid attention. I bummed out. Well it's you know. It's i've heard all the things. Just through osmosis around. So i know the stories about it but that team really when they kinda fell apart. It really crushed me as him should have won multiple. So it's like the ninety eight vikings with me. I can't go back and there was Nfl network series. The missing rings of the best teams did not win the super bowl. I can't watch it so much. I mean i. I was personally involved. You were yes. You were clayton super bowl and lost. Yeah thank you very point. I am now. I'm ready. The point my life where i can then absorb it because i honestly wow. I have not watched a thing about the eighty six. I mean we've had a bunch of the guys on. We've talked about talked about it for years with them I don't know how many times i said to one of them or all of them once once they've come through here about how disappointed it was for. All of us met fans that they should have one more. Yeah no that. They should have one more but they got derailed with all the nonsense. It just seems like every story's been told but in the eighties. How much cocaine can you absorb as based on what derailed the entire. Yeah of i mean but and think about it. I mean they won the world series and eighty six and thank god. They did that to get one championship and yet doc. Gooden going on a bender missing the parades. I mean that's how you didn't even get to really totally enjoy because already. Yeah the cracks. Were there Yeah absolutely yeah alley into this thing. You're gonna watch this totally into it. You're a totally into it. I'm like eddie i. I heard all the stories. But i'm not reading books on the eighty six mets. So i think they'll do a good job caught. No it'll be interesting to watch. I think we will get some footage that we haven't seen before maybe hear from people that we haven't heard from before people who worked behind the scenes with the mets or. I don't know i'm interested. I love any like the thirty for thirty s. i. I feel like. I always know the stories going in. But there is always some something uncovered. That's more like i knew everything about the oj stuff but that oj documentary was was great. Have you ever heard something about those. Eighty six mets. That someone's told you in confidence the never say on the air. No okay you yup and we we had doc on and then craig asking the question but listen tab boomer tries to get right off of it. Did you ever trade sexual favors for drugs. No he did not going into the project. Tell me about you throw your slider. I mean i. I ever trade sexual famous like going into the project. I wanted to the projects looking for these people. Were right board I felt so bad for him. Yeah i still do. I mean that's the point like i. I really felt bad for him. Because i had teammates. I played with that had the same problems that he had. Yeah and when you're when you're with your teammates you you're are. You're going to have a sense of sadness and a sense of like like you let them down. Sure i can't explain it. It's the hardest thing to know. He's still struggling to understand like how. Why like certain teammates. You'd put up with. It's just it's just the way that it is in the locker room yard together. You're it doesn't matter what your political affiliations are. Skin color is the none of that stuff matters in the locker. Yeah and you know you want to help each other. And we had a guy. Stanley wilson who was really really really bad and and had a major problems with cocaine and we wanted him to play with us. We loved the guy because when he was off the stuff he was one of the greatest guys in the world. Sure and you'd love hanging out with him and he was a great football player and all of a sudden he get a hold of that stuff. He began for like two weeks. Yeah and you couldn't count on. And it's like i kind of felt that way about. Why didn't that interview. That we had i was like man. I know craig's going to ask him some stuff that Just and he was saying he was clean. But you kinda you'd all it wasn't so i got a story like that so i don't know if you remember this eddie but i think it was before you guys got here even where they would send me into buffalo wild wings as a producer of joe and evan. They'd send me into buffalo wild wings and do sports talk shows inside buffalo wild wings and they used to give me guests and dwight. Gooden was one of my guests. It was the coolest thing in the world. That was a poster of me doc. Gooden resigns himself from everything else. So i'm interviewing and he's back and forth to the bathroom. He's sweating his ass off. And i'm like i'm like this is not right here. But he had been cleaned for a and out of the news and he goes. Oh man these wings just so hot and he was just pouring sweat. I was sold not wanting to think that he was doing anything that night or recently. And i was just like now is definitely the wings. He had hot wings was definitely that and then a week later he was arrested. I've got pulled over. And he had possession of cocaine in his car down in florida. And i was like. Oh it's just every time you hear the story like devastated. 'cause you like damn man you can just have it. It's amazing still alive. It really is and that beck. Cover the daily news. I think it was in eighty seven early eighties when it came out that he had mr prayed drugs and it was a bill gallo with yucky and being all sad hanging his head that got to me. Yeah yeah yeah. That was the end of. Let's go to eric in oceanside. What's going on eric. Hey good morning guys. what's up. Man made the comment about I'm not reading a book about the mets or the eighty. Sixth al dukes. Do okay I'm recommending this book out specifically the bad guys one. It's about the eighty six team but book is off the charts. I guarantee you your own words. Thirty thirty comment. I don't need to read it. I'm going to see it gonna watch tv. It's taken a year to read. A book can learn your book. Anybody make this comment true. A book is always better than a move. It just is false. Once you read this book tell it as more stuff in the book. And they'll they'll we'll be on thirty to thirty. Don't probably use a lot of that was in the walk in the thirty thirty. Don't you think. I have read that book and it is an interesting book. And that's why i'm like. I can't absorb any of this content. Because i feel like i know every story i even know a couple off the air stories that people say this is combat. Things you know you know you know the guys personally. At least i do keith for sure. Well ronnie key own all these guys. Yeah cone was a maniac to. I'm sure he was not on the eighty six. He wasn't on the but he was there. It was a part of the late eighties situation. That weird story about him or he was involved with himself at a game. Yeah involved with themselves a perfect way to put it for the air. The meanwhile we don't ever bring that up again like how does that not come up. I would ask every time if i was doing a game with them. And we had a Is this a good bullpen. To pleasure yourself in david. We had a flip of a famous. Fam caller mentioning that. It really is. Where is that. I'd like to hear that it's going to be a search okay. By the way. I did hear maggie asked this question to pete hoffman yesterday and i didn't know how to answer this and this was whether or not there are folders on all the on air personalities and all their screw ups and there would only be one person that would know that and i would think that they were pointing all in your direction. Well no there's actually there are treasure troves of things that we can't even air that we that we have. I'm not. I collect for this show. Okay and we use them but there are other folks who go back in and mine things for producer over eighty now zambrano luzerne and i was here famous and he took that clip and then put other people of that of that person saying what david cohen did. Yeah and then putting other name she would say in front of that also took question for you is that i know you have our stuff. I know people send you stuff. And i know that you can go back and listen to other shows. Fine things yes I just can't believe that. There's any file on maggie at all. Is there rupp's yes. I you gotta be here many many years to get a full well. She's been here through a bunch of different partners in time slots and all that other stuff and she was acting as if yesterday there has to be this big file on her screw ups. And i'm like i don't think i've ever heard a scream now. Yeah i don't think that there is a letter down. i don't even know. Is there a maggie clip. That saved. I don't even think there's a well no i don't i don't think so. There are not that i know of. Yeah i mean. There are some unbelievable mike and kristof back in the day. I mean just unbelievable stuff like the the words that got in the letters. That got jumbled up on wildcard hunt. Yes that's a classic one right. There's many things like that the amount of hours that they would spend on the air. Think there's probably a lot of stuff but then again. I think maggie. I don't think there is now an older on an believe there is in the morning show with boomer esiason and gregg giannotti boomer and geo party boomer and geo on the fan and cbs. Sports network. You interested in this. Mets thirty. For thirty eight six jerry. I'll watch my appointment tv. No because now. I'm feeling like i'm missing the boat on this because everybody else's interested in i just feel like i've heard every they just don't know what i'm going to learn that's all but watch it but it's not like oh i can't wait now. Whatever i can't say. I don't really think i'm going to end up watch and when it's coming out i might miss it. It'd be interesting because it'd be right around the nfl season openers. So we're gonna all immersed in on shore yes and fourteenth. What night is that any idea. Yes september hello anyone who say a wednesday. That would be interesting i suppose. Let's see september for look here dot that he'd hall september. It's a to. Ted's actually a good night. I was close tuesday's a great night during football season. And nothing else going on while you baseball i guess. Of course you know what. I'm saying if you've two teams in a pennant race if the mets are in it then maybe there's added intrigue behind the thirty for thirty. Yeah but if the mets are still in first place playing important game you're gonna watch a game. You're gonna watch the thirty for thirty. Dvr the thirty thirty catch up in the after. That's probably true if you have time. If you're actually a man who's got time on his hands all right what do you. What do you have their jerry. You're brought to you by flagging anthem. Performance gear flag and anthem real close for real life last night. The all star game in denver last hour played the vlad guerrero on fox kerr courtesy of joe buck. Of course here was fox. Deportes call the incident so typical. Talk to you separate. And i don't know who is. I don't know who is in the booth. You're the two announcers were there. And it seemed like i don't know if it was a player on it was a young man though that was actually calling. Now it's pretty good That he turned out to be nothing man but a guerrero junior turned out to be the. Mvp homer drove in two runs. A five two win for the american league. Guerrero said afterward. He had mvp vibes before. I live i. I've made from us to them. That i was going to be that i was going to win the mvp and he said you better win. That would be known. Come here and them as teammates and that's how it worked out for the nationally. They've lost eight in a row. Dave roberts manager. He's lost three times. Unfortunately i'm a part of three. Fm not The thing i'm most proud of. I hope i get a chance to win win next year. Now a couple of things along the way here. Aaron judge ofr two of the walk in a run scored taiwan walker through the sixth inning. He'll out of home. Run to mike zunino. Then you had shohei ohtani through the first inning. Hd when ofra to. Here's john smoltz on fox. The otani comparison otani is doing something on the mound. Daddy if all he did was pitched on the mound. I've made the claim he'd be one of the best if not the best pitcher in the american league so that just tells you what his time split between hitting and pitching is been something we've never seen and so that narrative continued as you certainly expected that it would last night. You had fernando. Tatis miked up during the game. Here was tattoos on otani. Everybody fever if they want to lead in guys get started on on the same way. Same there you go brought up fernando tat east junior high school. I did offense and defense. What do you mean you talk about baseball. No football no. I did not. Oh you didn't know. Do not really punted though. Oh okay. i'm surprised everybody putting i get. What the quarterback you kicked. Yeah did you really wow. I thought everybody played that ironman football back then. My high school coach would not let me play defense. Okay you told me not the wrong with the ball either. 'cause i looked like a stork. How come you never got on the field. When we used to kick those goals netjets camp you know look. My jury spent fourteen years in the nfl. Goofy games credit card. You threw balls in a garbage pail. I was throwing it from the top of the. I know you kick some field goals fifty yards out. I couldn't kick a fifty yard field goal. Not even close fine. No fun rob manfred did speak Talked about a couple of different things. they would like to ban the shift going forward to fielders on both sides of second base. So that's something no you don't wanna. I just don't know does that. The we focus on these things really gonna matter right. Everybody thinks like this. If you get the seven inning doubleheaders are a big problem or the shift is a big problem. This is a big problem. I just don't think that baseball is as popular as it used to be. I don't think that it's ever going to be as popular as it used to be. And we hyper focus. The people who hyper focus on these issues are people. That are not gonna stop while i have to say. I don't totally agree with everything that you're saying. There's a tinge of of Honestly i think in your your take on some of the different aspects of what rob man. I try to do here over the last two years now. a lot of this has been impacted by cope. Nineteen and a lot of this stuff is going to get removed out of the game as far as the shift is concerned. You know my my personal feeling is it's up to the batter to try to hit where they're not staying. They're all standing on the right side of the infield hit it to the left or to the left and just get on base. For god's sake. I this whole analytic kind of trend. That we've been going through with launch angles. Just hit home runs and all that other stuff you know. At the end of the day there are a lot of young stars in this game. And i think the game is about as healthy as it's been in a long time when you think of show tiny fr- fernando tat teased junior vlad guerrero junior. You know biz yo. All these young kids that are coming out of nowhere. Aaron judge pete alonso forgot. There's a bunch of really good young players that are in this league. I think the media so negative about everything that any of these commissioners try to do within their respective sports. So i just we just get hit over the head with the idiots sick. I have to tell you. I've enjoyed this baseball season. Thus far i have no. I'm i wasn't big into the all star game last night. I got roped into the home run hitting contest which is pretty cool. Because it was pete and was my team. But i i don't. I'm not as negative down on. It does as you are but how many times we talked about it. It's just tough to watch some of the strikeouts and the all or nothing in the home runs in the yankees being boring and their type of baseball. I mean i just. It's just not the game is a different game than it was when all of us were growing. I know one thing. This is houston series. That they just came out of was not boring. Not boring at all. And i suspect that these next thirteen games which for me anyway and i think for you too. I think you would agree. Is basically the yankee season right now. Because they're eight of them against the red sox against the rays and two of them against the phillies and are they going to go like eight and five and eight and five gonna prove says that they're still in it. What do you think they have to do over the next thirteen games to me. How many games are out of the wild card. That's really what it is so you really can't i. It depends what everybody else is doing. I mean if they started dipping like six seven eight games out of that. Wildcard than yeah. It's over. I imagine that the steinbrenner family would want the yankees to actually throw in the towel. The couple years ago they did. And that's when they traded chapman to the cubs ended up getting gleyber torres and things kind of took off from. They also had the gary sanchez. Little run at the end of the A bad season when he came up as a rookie so there was some excitement around the yankees even though they weren't relevant in the playoffs. Yeah i guess just back to my overall point on this thing is i. I feel like baseball fans and people talk about baseball. Spend so much time trying to fix the game. And i really don't know with any of those issues are going to matter. Either you like it or you don't think it's an awesome game especially when the games means something and the pitches means something and when the pitcher tells the manager get the f. off the mound it's my game and you know i gotta get this guy out and when you get into the playoffs and your team in the ploughs and i will agree with you. It is a regional sport. It is not a national sport. There's no question that's not even remotely close to what football is and but when your team is in it and you're hanging you know seventy nine and your clothes going to come in is going to be edwin as he's got two guys on and he's got to get an out and there's nothing quite like that. Okay give you a couple of next hour. We'll do some more stuff. We got headlines. No no no no. I just saw sixty one year old slashed a new york. What are we doing a slash. Even he because i followed ten ten wins on twitter. The those people over there hazard pay to hear the shark attack. Did you hear about where was people. Sailing capsized boomer told us earlier about the locally no they were going from maine down to the bahamas got caught in. A storm capsized. Three out of the five the five three of five eaten by sharks. Yeah oh good lord. There was that but then there was also the guy that got liquid thrown on him. I did hear that story. You heard that story. I think the person that through the liquid on the guy had no clothes on at least shirtless. I don't i don't think he'd shoes on either. The shorts on okay but the point is like the point is though like. Where's the guy. Get the liquid homedepot on somebody who knows i mean. Following ten wins on twitter. It is depressing. Sure no and they got video of a lot of things now like that was the whole thing. We're gonna check the video of the man throwing the burning solution on the other man. Come check out.

Isn't that like something that you would kind of realize that you wanna be safe and you want to be smart. You wanna have a good time. Well yeah of course not when you started drinking at six forty. But it's a little you know you don't wanna certainly don't want to get behind the wheel of any sort of vehicle boat or anything like that when you are ossified and by the way the people were operating the boats those are the ones who have to make sure that they're straight and then all the people that are on the boats passengers can have a good time.

All the different streets maybe crossover seven. Hey there for a little bit go up into north sable come back down you could get yourself going pretty easily and this way you can get to know your neighbors and see what's out there. Sure you know because sometimes you don't you don't realize what's out unless you're on a bike and you're seeing yeah. I loved the neighborhood. There's a where's your bike right now. It's down in the basement otis. Okay it's down. There should get out and go for a ride around the neighborhood. Okay maybe thing too is Sabrina would she sit. In one of those little baskets shore she would We've done that before. We did it with their last summer. yes i think. Have you forgotten about that or no. No we've been. We've been busy. And i like to take her to the beach on the nice days. Maybe i'll do that today. So low win. Dave sun comes out bringing over to the beach on the boat. I enjoy doing that Let's go to irene. Who's down in north carolina. What's going on irene. Hi i would you were doing great irene. Our you all right. i just can't get over. That geo really wants to go into onesie. yes i'd like to go into ones. I really don't not shape that easy now. But isn't that the point irene. Me in being a larger man in the onesie would create a funnier image. Well yes it would right now. It would with it and the american flag as good as i wish that. Take pictures of it. I'll tell you what you may not have may be able to watch it on tv. Irene he showed me a few of the ideas that he has. now he's got one. It's like its overalls. Yeah and it shorts. Yep so it's a onesie overall shorts kinda combination. Yeah where. I think if you wore that and you gave big zoo one of those you know and the two of you are together. Because he's like you and you would make four and it would be it would be tremendous. No i don't want being big. How big do they come in. And then you showed me one that looked like an italian biker. Yeah yeah that would be riding in the toward france with that. That one too. Yeah so. I tweeted out the two options that i'm looking at. They call this. One a romper a man. A men's romper. The biking outfit it does. It does go with that or i could go with the overall won. The overall one i think is moral cheesy. No i was going to say it's more fitting with the theme. We got country music. I got the mullet. it's more fitting this one. Looks more the romper. A straw cowboy hat. No no no. I just the will be fine to have a little piece of hay. And you're in your mouth maybe But yeah i. I think that i'm going to the overall one. Think about that over overrules mullet country music. I don't think i'll have the hey in my mouth. But i think that's the other one kind of looks like european. Dance music romper. Yeah but again looks like a bike outfit. Yeah for sure rosen. Fan would new jersey. What's going on bros. how're you doing. Gradually rose i appreciate that. I'm the person had called up about the field mice. Yes we have not experienced any of that at all. you know what. I have a lot by my house that i haven't seen a long time is snails. Which is really freaking me out like. I see at least a snail day but no field. Mice no cicadas and no dear which is tremendous fan calling today because watched three episodes of the Mr in between your. And i just want to know when it gets funny. It's not supposed to be comedy. It's there are it's a it's an action type of thing. There's some violence in there and it also is. I thought humorous at times as well But you may not like it may not be your type of thing. My wife didn't like it may be more of a A man show she said there's chick flicks and then there's other flicks and this was just not something that resonated with her. So maybe Maybe you don't like it. I mean we watch a lot of you. Know you know. Half dark shows like that but It's just that well so he's just not appealing the main characters apparently so easily on vm. For yeah well. I you can keep watching it. I think that it continues to get better. I think that it's the two lives that he has him as an assassin and him as a family man is interesting. I do think him and his best friend. The relationship there is funny. But if you don't like it you don't like it. Can i say the boomer and i have different tastes and tv shows. We don't always like the same stuff. I'm not gonna. I'm not offended. Rose that you don't like the show. I wanted to know if it was one of those things. You should stick with that. I i would but if you don't like it by episode three maybe add probably got to get out of it. Yeah maybe it might not be for you. Yeah and by the way. I was recommended that show by a man who has been nominated for emmys a mill a man who has been in the show. Billions and suits rick hoffman. He's the one recommend it to me. And he's an expert on television. I recommend l. dragoon. Yeah i can't. I don't know how you watch that y because it's like seven hundred thousand episodes. Yes and it's all likes kept going subtitled. It's fine jiu jitsu stuff. Yeah it's a little bit of a. It's a combination of yes. It's a mexican man who ends up being brought up in japan and has samurai weighs about him. Samurai winning comes back and is trying to clean up the family business but in the midst of trying to clean up the family business. He's get low thirty himself. Look at that. I'm just telling you and by the way ahead to wholesale snail thing. Yeah i mean are you have the snail with the shell or yeah you do. Yeah well you know. They do have some redeeming qualities. That they eat fungi. And stuff like that worms though. Eat like centipedes okay nature so you know not a bad thing to have around i. I didn't think that they were. I just found it odd. That i'm there's some have you. Do you have snails at your house there. Maybe i have not seen snell's up in the north shore or they may be more of a south shore thing. I'm not really sure I've seen snails on the south shore. Of course it was just because it's closer to the ocean not Or the whatever. But i've lived near the water. I lived near the water and bellport to. I did not see snails right saving thing. I guess you know they're really. They're they're gastro products are they. Yes i think they. All the snails are in savo because of the better school district. I think is And why is that why. Yeah let's go to eddie on long island what's going on. How you woman gio. Hey man what's up. What's happened nettie. I got a much better idea than zoo. Shaving his back at the parade. Well we are doing that by the way courtesy of back plates so that is that is one hundred percent happening. But what's your idea for you to finally shave your mullet. I'm not gonna do it at the parade. People have suggested that to me on twitter. I told you eddie. I m getting rid of it in september and i may cut it right after the boat party. I make them. But i'm not gonna cut it at the. I'm not gonna cut it at the both party. I'm not going to do because you know he has. It needs to be part of his flow right. Exactly i can't. It's just would be on the boat. He needs flow. And we're going to be on a boat. We're gonna yacht and then hanging out in the win some flow going absolutely me. When i had this thing this is all i've been thinking about is just having it out there in the wind the boat party and everybody seeing me and the american flag onesie what who is that guy you would know any. They cut his hair and he lost all his powers. Samson out of that was yes. That's what i'm afraid of to bobbio. No no no. There's a guy with long hair. I know i know samson. No no no no no no. You don't know what i'm about to say there's a guy with long hair that goes to kavanagh's and they call he's bigger guy in the cold flabbier thought that that was funny. It's the morning show with boomer esiason and gregg giannotti boomer. Ngo jeon fan and cbs. Sports network. So what do you think jerry. Should i go with you see this. That's a robber. not american. flag romper. No no you don't think that's a good one needs to see your package. And so what do you think that. This is a better one. This is a little more loose fitting. Its overalls that one's better and it's got an eagle on the chat. That one is better. That's the one that's the one that is not for body or body. I know it's not but does that. Make an al. Al could pull that one off. Eddie definitely not that off. Yes out. Good with the rest of the dallas captain suit. So he didn't say he's going to saying alka. Pull it off. You couldn't i couldn't gca. Well that's what makes it funny though. If you me in this by an extra small. He would be hilarious. But now i kind of the overall theme with the country news areo and that eagle head on the chest of you need to get a straw hat some sort of hats not going full hillbilly man. I'm not doing a nice straw cowboy now know where you're walkin hanging out the back and you have your Aviators on a no straw cowboy hat no chewing tobacco. No none of that area. Yes yeah straw. you've to wear it. I'm saying i like the idea of astrid full bumpkin though. Yeah okay. let's see here. We've got an update right now from jerry recco. What's going on jerry. Good morning syria brought to you by winters. Brothers waste system's long island's number one choice for all your waste collection and recycling needs visit winters b. r. o. s. dot com all star game last night coors field in denver vlad guerrero junior a home run couple of our mike zeno of met taiwan walker as lives and he has just left five to one as the nino the wallet rights adding four and they were winning by three five to the final. That was joe bach on fox sports. Vanino nino the home run capped. They're scoring four the night but it was guerrero junior. That was the game. Mvp here was a nino on him on on fox. He's a special type of talent. You know playing him as many times as we do with it. There's no break especially that lineup. The starters they had pound. But i know just seen and do that is is incredible in the first half incredible. First half for short ails when the all star game eight straight times now. Aaron judge over two of the walk and a run scored and of course shohei otani was a big story at the aw homerun derby going into the game. Did start pitched an inning and he was oh for two at the plate as well eight straight wins for the al in the all star game as for coming out of the break We know about the yankees and red sox. They will begin the second part of the season tomorrow night at the stadium very important weekend series and the metro. Play in pittsburgh on friday. Night as for noah syndergaard so whereas he at in his rehab. And how has he dealt with tommy. John surgery he was a guest. With seth meyers late. Night with seth meyers right. Here was syndergaard. yeah i mean i still think about to this day when i was in the doctor's office and i got the the news of from the the surgeon i would meet tommy. John surgery was absolutely devastating. But it's all about perception how you tackle things. What's a manager. This is on the late night. With seth meyers. I was just saying the. Why would seth meyers. Book noah syndergaard randomly on a national show. Now who's not pitching. I mean it's funny. You say that because syndergaard also was very grateful for the invite. I'm honored and thrilled to be rain. I haven't pitched a big league game in almost two years. So there's a real forgotten who you are. I mean. I'm sure someone canceled on them so they had a. I think he's still a story. What are they absolutely mantle story for us we're wfan. We barely talk about him talking about a national entertainment show as on find him interesting at all. Know those cuts. Yeah okay. i find him to be boring. He's got injured even he was surprised to be again. That's right blade. That right tonight. On myers calabrese scallon pals actually filling in for seth. so yes so. He won't south meyer. So there you go i went back. I listened to the carolinas trump ski interview with maggie. Yeah there's not a lot. There was only seven. It wasn't long with seven minutes and hour. Here was the one thing that maggie did. Ask her about in terms of what happened at the stadium that night and one of the clips that went viral with the kids and the red sock fans by biggest question for you is. We know that you had a really fun back and forth with some young boston. Red sox fans right. He got eight games. Coming up with the red sox. Four at the stadium obviously four. and a fenway. Are you going to reunite with this crew to act with each other. Is that right yell l. Kids that goes by on he w we have to meet up again in the wrong. So you know it's going to be the same energy though not really be friends with them but yeah thinking we're going to happen beat up. Let's hope we don't get swept again. There you go. And then there was a follow up from moose. Are you going to reprimand them again. Caroline stay started. I i have no that was it. Zoom zoom audio. Yeah they do a lot a lot of the interviews and not on the phone. There are over zoom so the quality is a little weirder guests for the show carolina. Strengths kion with mussa maggie. Or noah syndergaard with seth meyers. Which is i would say. Carolina's strom ski with moose and maggie. Because a little bit stranger. Though i mean six of one half dozen of the other. It's both are very odd odd. I agree don't make any sense that there was a great video that she did post on her page in course feels like in the bowels of the stadium. Yeah i guess she was credential. She must have been credentials. She was there and so fox is bringing out their talent to get them where they have to go and she can't really hear it's it's more for video just trying to get burkhart attention a rod frank thomas and then ortiz and they all walk right past like she's not even there because she did half acidly. I couldn't even hear any no. It was like she wasn't aggressive. Is that fair to say. I didn't even hear. I didn't know what she was doing. That's why when. I clicked on it. And i thought it was going to be a thing. Yeah you better. Be careful as frank thomas to sit on your face. A little that nugenix. What's going to happen big fella right there. Enormous get facial rearrangement sits on you. Same thing with ortiz. Well both those guys cool though like burkhart. Looks like he is a hollywood legend. All he is. I know it looks really cool. So he's got like a rod behind him. It's pretty it's a wild scene so we were talking about people who have folders of screw ups. You're just talking before. And you mentioned kevin given burkhard the funniest kevin burkhardt screw up was. He's doing overnight. It's a terrible overnight where they're talking about steroids and baseball and he says he had a speak and he goes. I mean if you look back joe. Mashing we know he wasn't to shin juiston oil caught himself and move on no notice. And it's funny one house. You got in milwaukee tonight. You got game three of the nba finals. That's finally back after a two day. Hiatus sons up to one on the bucks now. One of the storylines from game three. Were all the free. Throws the yana shot. He was thirteen or fourteen of seventeen. I believe the sun's shown only sixteen money williams was asked yesterday or the day before. I'm not sure which day this was why he went there. In the post game press conference. Somebody asked me the question. Like how can i help the a so. I answered it and then the the free throw disparity is what it is. So that's what i did. They had one player was seventeen. Free throws we had sixteen. That's not complaining stating facts. Well of course. The media went to him and expand told them what the money williams was saying. Wasn't all that interested in making my plea face ugly. It is what it is you know. I'm just trying to folks. And what i have to say making my pre ugly. I think i'm not sure because also thought he said what earlier about nipples. Yeah yeah my nipples are fine right. Something like that so Anyway game four will be late. I said game three. It's game four tonight with the sun's up. Two games to one clippers squire leonard surgery to repair a partially torn acl team. Usa did beat argentina. One eight eighty again exhibition action. This week's is the british open from royal. Saint george's tuesday with the media. I think you love jon. Rahm correct sportsman on this or not. So he was with the media yesterday and during the press conference he was asked why he's got such a limited short swing. I was not aware of this. Maybe you were As he did explain. I was born with a club foot on my right leg. Which means for anybody sensitive about that my right leg up to the end qabala straight. My foot was ninety degrees. Turn inside and basically upside down. That is had no idea. And he talked about how he was back and forth at the hospital. As an infant for weeks and weeks and weeks getting casted it and recast. They keep breaking his ankle to make sure they could set it properly and the effects of it from need down my leg didn't grow the same right so i have very limited income mobility on my right leg. It's a centimeter and a half shorter as well. So when i mean by limitations. I can't take full swing because my right ankle doesn't have the mobility stability ability to take and yet he's a professional golfer while he's learned he's learned how to work through most kids do when they're born with something and they know they just overcome it and they don't let get get in their way so that's even more reason to be a fan of his the one that i will say remember. He got tossed out of the memorial because of covid nineteen asking positive. Jack johnson tested positive for nineteen in his out of the open For this particular tournament. Yeah so there you have. Those interests aren't very good. Jerry i wanna go to brian in lake apart kong. What's going on brian. Hey guys how are you. What's up man Boomer i was listening to your your shark story from earlier and i think you've got confused. That event happened in nineteen eighty two. I know it did. Oh you did. Yeah i'm out the one with the girl. Yeah and i thought that happened last week during a tropical storm storm else eighty two. Yeah that's the euro was born. I say that. And i'm googling it and then i heard you'd say in some of the names. I said i've seen documentaries about schork wink. Okay all right i. I'm sorry don't be so. Don't be sorry fools. We thought the same thing shark week guys. I'm a big sports. Fan is the first time i called you. Listen to the show for thirty years but talk about. We're talking about sharks. I like it. Yeah i thought we were talking about tropical storm. Elsa mendez people just got eaten by the sharks nineteen eighty two. They never said that. They did a whole documentary. Right because we were talking about the bed current evacuation and the doctor said this clearly video because this looks like a movie and then i showed you the picture of the two people that were left behind out but there were a bell bottoms. I couldn't tell it was a black and white photo from above. Ask from the rescue ship unit until the tell us you should have said it was from nineteen eighty two. Can we laugh about now since nineteen eighty two. I don't know that you'll have about it because it's forty years it. It's a documentary on it. Okay is it one of those fake documentary. Things that discovery channel does worry our made thing like l thought there was actually real mermaids now well he said he google that the only thing they came up with nineteen eighty-two okay so that must have happened. Yeah i don't i the way you pitch this dos. Was that bad news. You want bad news. You always say that. I'm looking at bad news. Because you are and i'm over here like ronkainen groaning will you. That's what you do the brakes. Yes you go on man. This guy is arm chopped off and then somebody beat him with severed arm nine hundred twelve cruise ship sunk. Kenny jack. The ripper stories over there. I was wondering if Kim jong is going to be coming to our party but says in oh look. Dictator enjoys revamped. Party boat is nation. Suffer right all right very good. Yeah right look at this. Pompeii things aren't going well. They're mark in massachusetts. What's going on mark here. Yeah we can't we talk what's up. Got a question here. What are you finding this American eagle rob. Or if you ain't wearing to this party somebody got it and it's gonna be neat. Yeah are you coming down from massachusetts to go to this thing. Yes sir. I got my ticket and everything. Oh wow great. I believe it was on shyness. The dot com. That's yeah yeah. S. h. i. n. e. s. p. y. That's where i found it sti shyness part and you wearing something else from the site. Am i wearing something like nude. Yeah no i'm gonna. I think that you have to.

This guy to take a picture with the show. We're going to have to have a metal detector seriously. mike in darien connecticut. What's going on mike. We were how are you mike. What's happening brother. I have a recommendation for go. Now i love the fact that you're keeping the mullets for For the boat party have about a month. So i was thinking the you know the ones that i think is a great idea but to go with the mullet. You have enough time to grow a nice moustache. Would you consider it well. I do have the beard already. So i definitely i i. I need to keep the beard. I think that if i get. I've done this once before. Cbs sports network may have the picture. I was also very fat at the time so bad and then like you see my second chin in my face. I mean i i. I look like the cartoon drawings on pizza boxes. It's like you get the guy. The fat italian guy take the pizza. Yeah that's what i look like and i just don't think that that would be a good situation. Think about the The scope of photos of you you with when you did the dancing with the pittsburgh stars trim and fit and thin. That picture was trying to impress jeanette. Whatever yeah i mean. That looks like a different person. What did you look like when you took the sexual aid. I was in great shape. Then you are. I was i was probably the best shape of my life. Yeah which made it even stranger when someone walks in a room and said you have about johnny. And clark. Johnny what's happening. Hey boom earn. How you doing guys were great. What's going on ag l. Listen to you guys all the time. I got a quick story for you boomer. I'm listening to you right before. Your daughter's wedding about the The diet you went on my son gunners wedding yes yes right yes right. Your son gunnar. That's right right on diet. Yes yes so. I figured let me Right i said. I don't know i'm looking. My my son is getting married. He ended the year. So i think maybe i should start losing some weight to anyway I get on the phone with the screener. When i when i ordered my kit and she says so. How did you hear about us. And i go well. I'm listening to this guy in the morning in new york on the radio and he's talking about it and how he feels great and you know i figured i'd give it a shot and so she goes so Who who told you about this. I said i said boomer size. And she likes flipped out she goes. Wow you can't believe how many people are calling there. You go let it ring from From that so. I just wanted to let you that. I just finished my first week and I'm feeling great. I did you lose. I think i lost about eight. Yeah that's about right. At the end at the end i started get some cravings but i wasn't real bad. I was eating fruit in instead of eating. You know yeah well. You just got to do everything in moderation. Then do this again. I'm going to do it again in about another two weeks but do it again in another thirty days next thing. You know when you're when you're the wedding comes around the us go to you. People aren't going to recognize you. Yeah so i just just thanks a lot boomer and i'm breathing through my nose more now talking about it. Don't go swimming with the sharks. Don't do that either influence. Yes all right. I'm fine this thing as we speak the american flags screaming eagle overall good. Okay this is going to happen. Wow that's a. That's a expensive pair overalls hundred and nine dollars. I right around there. You would think it'd be a little bit cheaper than nipple. Crema bought genius. Those only like eight bucks. She's so confused about that. Why she's like why is boomer sending me nipple cream because you told me to well you said that you who normally have it in the the gift baskets for the moms well. That's what al said well because you told him that. I don't remember dad no you. You've done that before. Oh yes very seem. Very proud of it. Yeah so then. I felt like she should get the nipple create like she missed out on it. So once you sender some nipple cream you gotta rub it on their. If she asks i guess like i said we don't touch one. Another don't breastfeed you need nipple cream for those wondering like i'm the. Yeah i mean if you're pumping still some won't breath the pump to get it out so you get breast milk even if you're not breastfeeding baby. Yeah it comes in. Wow yep comes in by the way I found out more about those jersey cows. We're talking about you say of course was on you know the the french fry that the breast cream. I guess there are jersey. Cows up in the berkshires. Okay and that they make ice cream with these jersey crowd cows in their breasts cream. I guess okay. That's what i found out yesterday. All right awesome. It's tremendous breast pumps breast pumps. Breast pumps was just while slow day. It was a day for knowledge. it clearly. it's the morning show with boomer esiason and gregg giannotti boomer and geo boomer and geo on the fan and cbs sports network. So i saw yesterday the way that. Espn handled the stephen a. Smith thing was that they were gonna put him on first take and they were going to do the show but they're going to have people talk to him about what he said why it was wrong. They were gonna lecture him basically. Yes is the way that it went. Now jeff passan was one of those guys and he was on there for like ten minutes and he was trust. He was going in on stephen a smith and move your trafficking in ignorance and stephen. A smith just sat there and sat there and sat there and listened to all of it. And i thought to myself the stephen a. smith go into the green room app to this and go. Oh my god. This is the biggest bunch of bowl bleep. Ever heard in my life or does he actually say i've learned something today. I'm a better person. Now all depends on the mice rauner not well. That's the thing. See my whole overall. Take on this is that you know people say these things. They believe what they're saying and then other people tell them you're wrong. You're wrong you're wrong. And then they come out and say i've learned something. I'm now a better person for learning this. And they say it because they have to say those things. But i believe that in most instances people just saying that they've learned something but they still believe what they believe. I think especially when you are an adult. Who's had success doing things. A certain way your entire life i mean. Do you really believe that stephen. A smith learn something through this or do you think that. Maybe i had the case even apologize because people didn't like what i said and it could affect my bottom line did Thom brennaman learn something from his Ms speak man. I don't know. I know he went out and did like a lot of community stuff after this and i think he got some sort of minor league job somewhere or some deal. I'm not sure. I don't know but that's a good question i mean but that's Rachel nichols learn anything from this. I mean everybody do but the point is you can go on and on and on and on and on and then it's an arbitrary of Way of kind of deciding whether somebody is cancelled or not canceled. I think rachel's is back on. Tv trump yesterday. So i'm not really sure who is getting held accountable. Who's not getting help accountable. That's that's the point and it just seems like it's arbitrary and it's depending on who says what and how idiotic it is guys who like like michael vick who goes to jail for a long time it comes out and then realize maybe at that point the crimes committed but he paid. I remember that discussion. We add here with craig. May and we said that. He deserves a second chance because he paid his debt to society and not only did he pays that society as i understand it. He tried to make amends with all the people that he owed money to out and above all the transgressions that had with the dog so he tried to make restitution where he could as. Well the same thing. I say about craig when craig came back here. He paid his time shortages. Do you made a very very bad mistake. And he had to go away for it and it cost him on awful lot and almost cost him his family and now he's back and he's trying to make amends for yeah. I thought instances. In the cancelling instances are two different things. I do believe that. Yeah because you're getting cancelled while going to jail. That's a different story. Yeah yeah no but we're talking about something that you say that a bunch of people don't like which said and then all of a sudden you have to pay the price for the problem. Stephen is that he tried to double down. What he said yet will goes back to. My original point is like i just i still think that after all of this he probably still believes the initial stuff that he said and then he ought to be lectured to by pass. I mean what is it about the just watching a cringe-worthy is a i. Mean is an understatement. I mean everybody that they get on the high horse in the soapbox. It's like everybody's got to be more offended than the next guy like we live in a society. Now that we're we've been hit over the head with idiot. Stick that we all are need to be offended or in some way shape or form victim. Everybody i mean it's just so i mean it's just so easy to take that that side that know jeff. Passan just beaten up. Stephen a smith yesterday get but not like that. Did you watch. She was nine minutes trafficking in ignorance. Yeah i know. I couldn't funny. We got him a little bit. I mean he said what he said was wrong. But i wasn't sitting there going. Shohei ohtani left his entire family to come over ear. Chase down the american dream and here you are trafficking in ignorance like. What is this like. The salem witch trials think jesus christ pipe down. Well yeah god had to find a guy that you know could sit there and just berate stephen. A smith on their own channel to kind of deflect. We're taking care of our own in house business. I mean it's just hanging out it's just hanging out. Just do it destroy them. I would. I would think i you know. I don't know. I don't want to put myself in those two guys situation but i would think that after the fact somebody needs to be lamb. You want to say that somebody is god. What is in lyndon hurst. The place that floods very easily as we know from showing mirage and his ordeal. What's going on what he. Hey how are you. What's going on. Gentlemen yeah everything is good. Everything is good. I just wanted to comment on what you said about Stephen a smith and whether or not his recapitulation if you will on the things that he said which was totally off base and wrong whether or not he was sincere and you know what it brought up a point that you know i listened to. I'm an african american. I listened to people that. Say things that off color and i have to take them for their work that this in and i just wanted to know. What is it that you think or you. Don't think that kim sitting there and listening to all this stuff being told he was wrong. make some not being sincere. I don't think it's just him. I think it's a lot in by the way. I'm using him as an example because the latest thing. That's in the news. But i feel this about a lot of people that get caught and they say something and they realized that a bunch of people got offended by. They're like oh crap now. I have to backtrack on it. The reason why. I believe it with stephen. A smith in particular is because he said it so confidently on his show and then his first pass at an apology or an explanation. Resume doubling down on what he said and then him just sitting there yesterday it looked to me like he was not happy having to sit there and listen to me. It just feels like this is what i have to do to protect my twelve million dollars salary but really in the end. I still believe what i said. Initially i could be wrong that just my take on it and i'm not just picking on him. There's a whole bunch of other people have been put in similar situations. You have to sit there and eat crap when they feel like. They don't have to to protect their jobs in their careers and a reputation. I certainly agree with that. You know being a retired detective I worked in nypd. You know when. I first got into the job People used to say to me. Hey I didn't call you when i was in Clothes i was looking for the other detectors. And i would look at them with an odd. I now if i took everybody for what their word is and not gave him a break and gave him a pass card. I would be real real angry man. So that's why i called. I just wanted to know what was the parameters for anybody to say that when they Try to apologize. they're not sincere. Because from my side and offense that happens in my life all the time. Sure i'm sure. There's there's a lot of times right and woody more. Would you say more often than what you're saying. You take people at their word. But i mean you have to have some sort of cynicism with it right. Could you're like wait a second. This is all you said this. This is how you felt at one point. Listen absolutely absolutely and that's what it is the be If you will an african-american you gotta constantly constantly suck it up and say you know what. Let me let it go but you know what gio and not know what boomer at some point in time. You can't do that anymore. You're not anybody else's guardian angel you have to say hey. Stop the nonsense. And that's where we're getting to in this point light that all these things are coming out. Ev you know there's no racism but gets they'll all these different incidents of things that had this racism racism all over the place. Well of course there is exactly so when people come up. Like i don't understand why he would say that i wouldn't. I don't understand why this person matter of fact a couple of weeks ago you said you. I think boomer said And i know boomer's a straight and narrow and i like that i appreciate about Appreciate that about him he said. I don't understand why. Scottie pippen his this way and that way well you know what boomer and geo. It's some of the things that may have happened to him that you know what he said. Hey i'm sick and tired of this nonsense and now it's time for me to proclaim it and that's where we're at someone like me. Who's a professional. You know what. I look at all these different incidents and i'm like how long this continue. How long was this continue. You know. there's certain golf courses. I can't go to. It's still continuing. Yeah no i know and it's and it's always going in. Unfortunately you know for my entire adult life. It's been an uncomfortable conversation i. It's hard for me to speak from your perspective. But i do believe that. Go ahead magic word uncomfortable and you know what i am just tired of being uncomfortable and other people have to realize that there are a whole mess of people a whole group of people that uncomfortable with what goes on but they don't utter a word and at some point in time they hit that fence if you will and they say you know what enough is enough enough is enough but i will say this. I'm glad you guys are bringing this forum to the table especially a good thing to hear from youtube guys who people doubt what you say sometimes and take everything for what it's worth sometimes and you know what it's in the middle. It's in the middle. So i'm glad you guys brought the table and i appreciate everything that you have said and done and gave me a platform to say what i needed to say. 'cause i'm driving and i just learned about sports from listening to everybody else on. Espn so with that. Being said i don't agree with you all the time. I don't disagree with you all the time and that makes me pretty saying you know what i'm saying. Thank you for the call and we really do appreciate your shortcut right exactly. It's a linden her sky and we love that we do appreciate his perspective on all that. But i mean it's a it's a tricky situation. I just think that there's a lot of people that apologize there. Sorry they got caught or their salary that you know they may lose their job. But are you really sorry and i know maybe it matters. Maybe it doesn't matter. I don't know but it's just like the caving that goes on like you've only got one. Stephen smith only has one choice in that situation is to sit there and have people yell at him and tell them how stupid he was and how he really made a mistake had one choice. He couldn't say you know. I'm not a racist person. But i said what i said because of this this and this he could hit one choice. That was it was to sit there and take it from everybody and he did and he listened and he took it and it was a business decision yesterday but i wonder if you sat down with him at a bar and got his real take on everything how he felt about the thing about it. Is that You know it's just an arbitrary way of invoking some sort of penalty and i don't know who is the arbiter of that. And who decides that and i think every situation is different I i've said before here on the show. Many times. Since i started about stephen a smith and how he kind of morphed himself into different angles this business and i give them credit for creating the amount of buzz that he creates with his hot takes if you will you know some of them. I don't like just like you know what he would say. Like some of our takes some of them. I do like some my. I do laugh at them and i find them funny and i do think that he does his homework in some regards. he got basically caught flat-footed here and said the wrong thing about the biggest storm. Baseball right now. The biggest story in baseball no absolutely and major league baseball is marketing. Their biggest star. He's all over the place. They changed the rules for the all star game so he could play in certain way. Yeah i mean. I'm sorry i just. I was watching that some of that stuff yesterday and so it was hard to watch one of his colleagues. Just go off on them like you know you need. You need to do an autopsy on yourself. I can please have to take okay. It's the morning show with boomer esiason and gregg giannotti boomer and geo already boomer and geo company alive four tough studio talking a little bit about shohei ohtani situation stephen. A smith in the browbeating in which got by his colleague. Yesterday i would. I just want to hear with some of these guys. Say away from the camera. I just really want to hear what some of these guys have to say. Because i can't imagine. Stephen a smith was wrong in what he said. I believe that he was off base. He's talking about the marketing of the game. Like you need english speaking players to mark the game properly. I don't agree with that. I don't think anybody cares. We sit here all the time it talking about. How boring every athlete is. We don't want to hear him talk and what to see him. Play just heard. That noah syndergaard clip. You think on seth meyers. We don't want to see him talk. I want to see him pitch. They're saying that's a true too. Yes very rarely. Do you get an interesting athlete ever. But you know you. Beijing thing is because of the nature of the amount of international players. All these sports go whether it be soccer whether it be hockey whether it be basketball baseball. I think it's become common practice just to understand that some guys have interpreters some guys. Don't guys wanna learn how to speak the language like gleyber torres and we give them credit for it but we also understand when somebody is not comfortable speaking a language but that doesn't mean that i am not fascinated by shohei otani of. That's why i think he's wrong. Yeah 'cause there are there are. There are a ton of international basketball poorest. Most of them. I do believe. I do believe they speak english. Yeah some of them have a heavy accent. Sometimes you don't understand everything that they're saying we're kind of making fun of ghana's little bit certain things right but the fact of the matter is that it's such a global community athletes and that's why i'm going to be interested in the olympics of course because it brings the entire world together in sports that we usually don't watch but really take a look at our sports here the four nat big sports here anyway. The amount of international players like it's so significant now that i don't even think we even give it a second thought we don't. I mean the best of the best in the world. Come here to play hockey basketball. They want they want as we could say how you want to say it. But i'm going to say they want the american dream and they want the ability ability to change their lives. Their families lives by making life changing money absolute and having opportunity to be able to be the best at what they do while getting paid the most money the reaction that the colleagues stephen smith had yesterday. It was as if stephen a smith said nobody from any other country should be playing baseball but people who were born here and speak english. Keep everybody out. That's what you would think stephen. A smith set with the reaction. That was out there. I mean that to me is like that. That's why i was a little surprised. I didn't think what he said was right by any stretch. But it wasn't. Wasn't that over the line. In other words it wasn't the point where he was trying to be As you pointed out a everybody has to be from here right like either you or like you better give you dow dairy speaking the language. Here's what i would say. Because of the international flavor of all of these sports it brings more is to the sport because of that player. so let's say shohei otani. Is the story a major league baseball this year. How many more japanese baseball fans are now involved watching major league baseball when we saw it here with the decky matsui for many years how popular he was and how. The yankee brand grew in japan when he played for the yank are. So we're talking about you know asian players of some sort So we saw what happened with germany lin here and we saw what happened when he went up to toronto. You remember how many how not sure of the asian population in toronto. But if you remember them shooting the crowd how many proud asian canadians came out and supported jeremy lin so i think it opens the eyes to so many more people. That's not just about trying to get middle america. The by into baseball. It's about trying to get more is outside of middle america to get involved in baseball. Yeah absolutely i. let's go to hulu. I wanna go anthony in brooklyn. What's up anthony. Hey guys play to talk to you. Any a Just wanted sam problem of the new york city department of sanitation and bouma was appreciate when you give us a shout out. All the guys My job we love you. We listen to you guys every day. So thank you guys doing what we love you guys man. I tell you hundred percent except what you're blocking traffic and chemical term because he got lean to restaurants in the middle of the street. Still love you even through all of that. Yeah we don't do it purposely. you know. It's a business. I gotcha good. So what do you got. But i just wanted to say. I think this whole argument about Who the face of baseball is could be. I i i think it's of silly and irrelevant like when was the last time there was a definitive space of baseball. Even when derek jeter was the so called face there were others. Who said it was my trout and when people say it was my trout others said it was jeter like i think right now there are too many young stars who are really good in any one of them could be the they all they all are the faces of baseball as what they are and they come from all different backgrounds. Which makes it even that much interesting to me right. But i feel like there's a backlash because of what and don't get me wrong. I don't agree at all what he said. And i think what he said was silly. But i think there's a backlash because of of The fact that you know he he's He doesn't speak english and there are people who want him to be the face of baseball and they're insulted that he that stephen. They said that he can't you know. I just think the argument is silly and again. That's not to say that. I agree at all with what he said. Yeah well i am. We appreciate anthony and say safe. You know stephen. Eight just basically said they can't market because he has speak english that's basically what he said. Yeah my point is which is wrong. Which is one hundred percent wrong. But he can't be marketed globally and he is being marketed locally. And how many otani jerseys have been sold over the last you know year and even the ratings of the home run derby were up because probably because he was in it. He wanted to see him right. So that. That's why the argument doesn't hold water to me to bob in connecticut. What's going on bob. good morning. Taffeta bobby good morning boomer. We gotta get john soft fall on fire. We gotta get you up here to play a charity tournament. Planning more though. I can't play by myself way too. Far connecticut's way too far away bob. Yeah al dukes ago crazy. My my point was i watched that a whole thing yesterday on. I take and one of the things that steven a. didn't do is. He apologized to everybody but otani. I don't know i didn't watch the whole thing. I'm sure that he did everything that was asked of him to do and kissed every ass in which he needed to and then just to save his job. So i mean i i. I don't know. I'll take your word for it even think shohei ohtani even care. Of course i mean he's just worried about pitching and playing baseball in doing something. Nobody's ever done before and he wants to do it. That's the beauty of it. Yeah he wants to do it. He wants to lead off. He wants to pitch. He wants to play the field. I know he just the h is but if he could. I bet you'd wanna play first base out the outfield stephen yonkers alot. Steve perry homered. Yo what's going. What's avid brother. Nothing i kinda wanna get your opinion on this whole charade. You know this whole thing. Even a smith yeah. It's not really what he said. But i mean guy of his stature that you know sacrifice for what he has and you know put in working all these things i just. I just want your opinion on you know these guys. Having apologized to poor they apologizing to north fat norps on twitter and her my then he's got to get on tv and have any convention. What is showing nowadays. I mean boomer. I mean lawrence taylor was advocates. Decided on i wanna get you guys. Take you from long island. I wanna hear what you got saying. Well i say that because of the advent of social media and everybody able to have an opinion in immediate moment that something happens. This is what i think happened with stephen as so he says what he says. The next thing you know twitter goes crazy The mainstream media then picks up the twitter feeds of all these different people. It's all the twitter feeds together then puts it out on their websites or puts it into their papers or onto their links or onto their social media. And then you link onto it the next thing you know it becomes a feeding frenzy. Sure and it's if that's where the word viral came from and everybody's just so afraid that's what it is. I mean stephen. Smith is afraid of losing his twelve million dollar salary. I would be too of course would be to absolutely if anything like this happened on this show. I'd be scared to death as well of losing the greatest job that ever imagined. Espn's worried about losing advertisers. People worried about bad press. And it's just everybody's just freaks out and then you have to have. The intervention is the best way to put it in. the intervention. Yesterday was like sitting him down. Do an autopsy on yourself stephen. I do an autopsy find out what's in there find out why. Say the things you say and do the things you do. Open yourself off. Because i get paid twelve million dollars a year rate strife and controversy for me like you open me off but you get to see dollar bills. See that you're going to see in the autism. His job is say controversial. Things i mean. I don't know if you anymore. The thing can you or depends is a line and the line gets keeps going closer and closer and closer and closer to just complete boring. Nobody says anything ever well. No but that's not true. Because you have podcasts and you have people on borstal and you have people out there that are just repair. Work at corporate america. So i like sean avery. I personally like him. I like him as a person. I like him. As a guy. I love the way that he was an agitator and hockey. And i get his whole game and all that other stuff and i watch on instagram and what. They won't put them on tv because he's too controversial. So you know when you go to listen to these podcasts where people can drop whatever sort of words they wanna drop because there's no there's no filter but even joe rogan is going through it now. Yeah but he's not going anywhere he's going through it because the spotify people some people in their offices or whatever like guys. You work for a company. The reason they're trying to make money a hiring people like joe rogan to sell. And if you don't like them then should you not work there or should he be fired like what what should happen. They'll the other funny thing though it spotify. They have no problem with all of these songs that talk about the worst things ever. They've no problem putting all that on there. But then i just nothing is ever consistent. Never news talk about these podcasts. Of the podcast. No problems because no one's hearing them but like a joe rogan. Once he gets up there just like spotify got that. Call her daddy thing. Yeah all she talks about is hard core sex stuff that's cool. No one's got a problem with that over there. But joe rogan. They got a problem with no problem with rap music. But joe rogan. They got a problem with like. Where's the consistency with it. Yeah no there. There is none and i think when you start making more in your more popular. That's when the target comes on your back. I mean you talk about podcasts and stuff the only people that get away with it i think is at that level i would say probably barstool gets away with the most stuff. They're getting away with not getting cancelled when they say stuff that's controversial because they they have their listenership. That's not that doesn't want them cancer of course and i think it's great that they're able to do basically whatever they want quite frankly but they're the only ones i can't think anybody else i mean which is which is not All right we're way behind still. It's the morning show with boomer. Esiason gregg giannotti boomer and geo torn on the fan and cbs sports network. Now the pair of yankees red sox tickets to give away before the end of the show so stay tuned for that. Four tomorrow night's that's pretty cool the yankees back in action already. So morrow jerry. Recco is back with his update and moment the day. What's going on jerry. We've got a pretty quiet night ahead. Just the nba had the all star game and the the big player. The big moment was flag. Vladimir guerrero junior as we know drove into including this monster home. Run wow that is the two hundred home run and all star game history and you could shop that up into two and that was joe buck on fox sports. That would be part of the differences. The american league beat the national league. Five to make h straight wins for the al over the nfl. Mike zeno also homered but it was guerrero junior. That was the game. Mvp here was guerrero. Taking home the hardware. And i do want to say that that just want to say thank you to him and that this is that was guerrero on fox as well in terms of the home. Run as manager. Dave roberts rather The opposing manager dave roberts. I don't know if he was sitting slider but man burnt a heck of a pitcher and he got every bit of that baseball meaning corbin burns For the yankees. Aaron judge for two of the raw i walk and a run scored and for the med star one walker. Through the sixty gave up these in nino homerun all in although Good time span was super excited. Super excited Set of big mama face the whole time Got a couple of outs strike out Even giving up a home run. I was just just part of the experience. So was the all star game and he enjoyed himself in denver at coors field. And with that you get at least for the mets. They get a couple of days before they play pittsburgh on friday night at pnc park. The yankees on the other hand are right back at it tomorrow night. They started pretty big series against the red sox tomorrow night at the stadium. Red sox swept them last time out right now while their next thirteen games basically are gonna make or break their season very well. We'll was eight with the red sox and then is that right. Eight two eight eight two and three with eight two at the phillies than three with the raise. Eight with the red sox and the race goes four. Red sox and yankee stadium to with the phillies stadium. Yes then four. With the red sox up there up there and then three with tampa whereas that tampa is that in tampa yeah tampa suck right now. So we're going to get Jake degrom friday night. Right in pittsburgh. Right i would. I would think so. I mean better than it would certainly in pitching the all star game jacob too long there Mentioned syndergaard last hour with seth meyers on the late show The one i didn't get to was how his rehab is actually coming along a little setback but Everybody seems really encouraged to where the trajectory that i'm headed so i don't like timelines on things. Maybe the end of the summer as our thinking or september. Something like that tonight. On jimmy fallon. Tomas nido the hell is going on. I mean maybe we don't say syndergaard until next year. Maybe it certainly is very possible is contract status. He's a free agent after this year. Just a free agent. God forget what. I could do wrong about that. What waste any more than a year left has at least got a maybe there's another arbitration year and there and i thought he was a free agent though. But you might be right Tonight milwaukee game for nba finals sons and bucks phoenix. Two games to one We hear from new nick guard. I haven't heard from this guy. Lucasville. the yeah. It's bill does those Sorry unrestricted free agent. Two twenty to get your right jerry. For noah syndergaard louisville does gabriel. Endoscopic is also under stricter free agent. Right now jack is going to be one too. He's gonna get bought out. i saw. Here's i don't have land scott. But i do have village doors. Who's fired up to be an active part of the team Story team for me. I've been saying this for the last two months of from his dream. There ought that's right historic team. Welcome to the dream. Lucasville does We do have gabriel. Landis gog hoping to be arranger so we borrowed the team story. I've say for the last two months of a drink pretty wild. it's crazy. they sound really like crazy. The clippers announced leonard surgery to repair a partially torn. Acl the us did beat argentina. one eight eighty And then a couple of football here. Von miller in terms of erica zoom. He he along with What's his name peyton. Manning asked about aaron rodgers where going to be could denver be a landing spot for him. We heard from manning earlier who said. He didn't expect it is. he's not coming. The denver got his denver's got up drew. Lock teddy bridgewater be their quarterback right. Here was miller on news. Nine or nine news in denver. He says whatever. I leave it to the front office. Joyce payne and john elway whatever can be done. We'll be done on. I'm a firm believer that the guys that we have now. We all super excited about the super excited. But unfortunately it's not george peyton. That's not the name somebody said. It's not the name of their general manager. George that's pretty funny. And the i figure it out exactly and the british open does begin tomorrow at royal. Saint george's time now for moment of the day brought to you by casa migos to kill us. Amigos goes to kill a brought to you by those who get. We do have a couple here. And i'm not sure which one i like. I guess i will go with. I'm gonna give you a choice. You wanna go show or pro athlete. pro athlete is probably jaanus. The show all i don incorrect. Oh it's not that. I don't know boomer you make the call air be i always kinda like show. Okay so then we will go with you guys. Trying to figure out how carolina's crimsky was booked on loosen maggie yesterday pitched it was it. Hoffman the pitched it. We his ass up. Just wake him. I was gonna say he's up all right. He's working in the afternoon probably not today. Don't put them on. How did this go over with dope. Was this unlike a dry. Erase board ideas. Got as good. I can see my face. He's in like the ear of moose question but there you go up again this afternoon in for carton robertson. Two two seven. That's right. I believe they're going to have on mike francesa sister. Who's going to be joining in three o'clock hour then followed by richard nears nephew which will allow to open the show and then pete hoffman at four right to go over the half the half lunch or dinner. It's the morning show with boomer. Esiason in gregg giannotti boomer and geo variety boomer and geo on the fan and cbs sports network. After the show you got a big data today with your granddaughter. It's her first birthday. That's right and boom pas going to be there. What the gift for the first birthday. I don't wanna tell you what the gift of well it's not like. She's going to listen and her mother will will open the gift and hopefully enjoy it. Okay all right. So it's more to sydney than it. Is alex gift for win when he today's best deal day so i try to do something along that so maybe they'll be something that she could wear that she will like. I hope sydney likes it. Oh i well little frontier franche okay. Why don't you give them like a french bulldog puppy no they got enough dogs. This three ring circus right now. Will you take some pictures and will you tweet some pictures out of the first birthday. I'm sure i will. Okay very good. I want to see some of these pictures. I know you do. I'm sure that sydney went crazy. Every first birthday has to be very over the top. I don't think it's going to be crazy. I don't. I didn't get the sense of that. But i i do think that it's over under fifty people invited. That's a good question. I don't know. I have no idea it's got to be over. I'm not this is not a wedding. I'm not paying for it so i am. A guest and boy will participate as an eat. Drink as much as i can so just runs the cost of any suggested that you gotta fisher price guillotine best deal day. Let's go to lou and port chester. Hello hey guys. What's up. Wondering if i could get the three points about stephen a. The first point is is is you know he. He came to our hometown and kinda disparage. My my family in our stadium. But i want to get to that last because at the same time the irony that he is beyond has is that you know he's hired to be controversial and to to give a soundbite every day and yet and yet we live in a culture where you know. You can't say these things so they they definitely have have an iron. You're going on there you know. Let's let's call that the way it is the other thing is i think it's disingenuous that you cannot that you can't say and not mean it in a race girl or disparaging way that that you're going to market a player differently that he's not going to have the state connection with the fans when he has an interpreter. And that's not the point out. That's not to say something disparaging racial. That's just the point of fact that it's going to be something different then Somebody that speaks the language and but we because we live in such a crazy society that you can't even say anything you know right away and has to be racial. And so you know. But stephen a. I kinda defending him in theory partially but then at the same time he was at our stadium and and bloomberg. You'll notice rocky marciano stadium in brockton a couple of weeks ago for the marvin marvin marvelous hagler memorial. And he's in. He's in rocky marciano stadium. The statue in the foreground twenty-seven foot statue. My uncle and on armin colombo field. Who's my uncle is well. Who's related to mark. Who was the coach of the giants. What did he do. Because i'm running out of patience here. Well well we have some history in that town in and he was very dismissive and he says yeah. I know i'm on rocky marciano field but hagler was hagler you know and you might not think it's much but he was dismissive in nature not a lot of class You know we have a lot of history there. Yeah i mean that seems like a personal thing that offended you. There's probably not that big of a deal. It's kind of weird. You may be offended but he was also defending stephen a smith in a weird way. I i'm sorry that i went to that phone call. I really am. He was more interested in just letting you know he was. Rocky marciano nef. Yeah right and whoever the other guy with you know those baseball players show up. They also baseballs around the dugout before the game so sure. That's a way for players to embrace the fans and closer to the fan bandings. Yeah well shohei. Otani is doing that at yankee stadium shore and it wasn't just a say. Japanese fans or asian bands. Was the baseball baseball fans. Everybody if the funniest part about this whole controversy to me is. I never really want to hear an athlete. Speak these days. They never say anything interesting ever. So i don't care of shohei ohtani speaking english or for these junior speaking english or garrett colour who they never say anything interesting bauer before his whole mess he was a i would say some controversial stuff and he would be interesting but there's just they never say anything. I've never liked an athlete solely on the way that he spoke to the media. Never now sometimes it makes them a little more interesting or more entertaining when they got some personality. But most of the time we fall in love with these guys what they wanna field jacob degrom is the best example there is. He's must see tv. Were never missed. One of his starts is one of the most boring guys in sports and that's great works for him. Never says anything interesting. I mean it's the same thing with shohei ohtani. Speaking english jacob the crime both those guys were watching for their greatness. Not for what they're saying afterwards all right.

"Uh-huh none smaller in bigger than what he told. Gary smith as very famous sports illustrated writer one of the great feature writers in the history of the magazine. And said you know. The tiger was the chosen one that he was. He was going to impact nations and likened them to gandhi and buddha. Who does that. What parent puts that kind of pressure and tiger. Never said anything about it. He just absorbed it and went about his business. Practice practice practice practice and then launched an unprecedented amateur career. Let me also ask you this and this is an observation on my part and i'm just wondering if you found this and all the people that you talked to with the death of his dad did tiger loses moral compass with that death. That's an interesting question. And there was one that we looked at In that time line instead you know earl dies in may two thousand and six but to be honest with you ron. If you really do the reporting that we did Tiger was headed off a cliff. Really not long. After he got married to two he began to have affairs just months after he was married and his life. Two thousand six was one of his the greatest years of his professional golfing career He's the first one hundred million dollars a year. Aptly his is Is is now absorbed. overwhelmed with commercial Obligations that he has so in slow motion. When you slow down as we do you can see the class than the distance. What earls death did the car was accelerating earls just basically removed. The guardrails tiger was headed in that same direction. But he didn't have His dad's council and not to say that they were close at that time. 'cause they really weren't and not to say that url was on. You know the pastor at the local church because he wasn't but he was the one person that could say something to tiger like in terms of. What are you doing here. You're married to the most one of the most beautiful women in the world. You have everything to lose your having multiple affairs You know we've just you know. In two thousand. Seventy escapes scandal with the national enquirer. So that was. That was no question that was a very pivotal moment but in terms of the archetype his life he was already headed off the cliff. I was really surprised to learn from your book that to this day. His grave is unmarked grave. Why well that's a. We opened the book with the sexton of the sunset ceremony. Excuse me sunset cemetery manhattan. Kansas digging earl woods grave and it is on march. And it's one of the biggest mysteries and it would be probably the first question. If i could ask a question of tiger. i would ask him. Why is your father buried in an unmarked ray. We offer the answer about midway through the book in two thousand six And i think you have to look at how earl- treated tita They were estranged For most of the tigers in terms of their physical relationship there wasn't much going on they were more of a business partnership or according to eyewitnesses accounts and people that heard it did not speak Abused verbally abused tita in many of the conversations that other people overheard and You know it was just one of those things where it's in in our mind. It's titas revenge and if you know anything about her woods Last thing he would want is You know as an unmarked grave. There'd be a band playing twenty four seven you would have a huge monument You know the gravestone. Would you know there despite lights on it. And that's one of the and you can't find that grade unless you know the market numbers and they're listed in our book but if you didn't know where earl was buried you'd never find him. We have about three minutes before we have to break here again. But i'm just wondering when he drove off the cliff emotionally with what he did that year. And all the affairs and everything i. I'm not trying to accuse anybody. But he was spending some time doing some clubbing with michael jordan. And charles barkley. What type of influence were they on him. Well charles was was. I think of terrific influence because charles's the man of the people and charles is the first one to pull out. You know a some one hundred dollar. Bill tip a valet or a cocktail waitress or You know a locker room attendant. Michael was a very different person in terms of the sense of entitlement and they combined in las vegas. There's a chapter in the book called in the bubble and it's something that i spent A lot of time Reporting and writing which is really tigers signed into secret light. It was vegas was his getaway place you could go and And really let loose it. They wanted to but he could do it in complete privacy He would go from the airport to the mgm to private villas behind. The gm called the mansion You know just Private elevator to a private suite private gaining anything and everything he wanted and michael jordan and charles open. Tigers is to what was available for for athletes of his stature in las vegas and between vip hosts and the the high end nightclubs Tiger began to experience it in ways. That are almost unimaginable. And the two minutes we have who had the most influence over him at that time did he listen to anybody. Well even listen to mark steinberg Because steinberg was had had proven to tiger his loyalty which was extremely important The two things that that tiger values most our privacy and loyalty and market earn tigers. Trust because he was solely focused on protecting tigers. Image at at at any cost really. And but it's interesting. Because a lot of the people like butch harmon and a guy by the name of john merchant who was very Influential in tigers amador years and raising tens of thousands of dollars to help fund tigers. Amador clear which nobody knew about That's reported in detail. In her book john was gone Joanna jagoda at one of the really a beautiful smart and tigers like she was on her way out so there really wasn't anybody from the outside of significance in and An importance in sort of worldliness to him. That tiger wood was speaking to because those people have been removed. Armond katayan is with us here on sports byline. We're talking about his outstanding book. Jeff benedict co author of this book. It's called tiger woods. And i gotta tell you you'll learn an awful lot about not only tiger the golfer but also tiger the human and the things that made him what he was how he got to where he was.

Katayan is join us here on sports byline. usa. We're talking about his book along with jeff benedict they've authored tiger woods the name of the book and outstanding book. We're gonna make a selection of the month on the sports byline. Usa book corner. Correct me if i'm wrong with this statement but it appears to me that the biggest challenge tiger has had in his life is understanding and controlling the personal tiger and the professional tiger. That's a really good way to put it. Wish we stolen ask for the book Yeah the the professional tiger is a Is a is a transcendent star. You know you see him once in you may never see him again kind of an athlete and i think one of the things that this book does really well on. It reminds The reader Adjust what kind of Golfer tiger woods was. I mean time after time these shots that only could come from a creative mind as as as rich and his in his as wildly Interesting as tigers. Seeing shots shaping shots but you know for all of that in the savant leg abilities that he had on the golf course it. There was like it was like there. Was this other tiger woods that Had known life. Like you. And i would a life. And that's that's not surprising in some respects because he was the most famous athlete on the planet for the better part of ten years. But it just didn't have. It didn't have a lot of friends. He didn't have people that that were there That weren't on his payroll or that weren't there to tell him what he wanted to hear because they were linked to him and some financial manner. And i think it was two tigers detriment as time went on. I mean there's example after example of him You know as you said cutting loose but also in circumstances where he's making some really bad decisions. I mean in terms of the infidelity sweeping with the the perkins waitress mindy lawton. Who was literally serving breakfast and seeding the on tiger Who lives nearby. I mean what in the world would motivate you to have an affair with with a pancake. Waitress why in the world would you sleep with literally the girl next door who was twenty years old at the time. And and had babysat for your. You know one of your children But if he understands sex addiction. And i probably understand it better than most right now because i spent a lot of time talking to some moral announced sex addiction experts and trying to understand what tiger went through when he went to the gratitude program down in hattiesburg mississippi in it. What you learn is is that sex addiction is really not about sex. It's about pain relief. Much like alcohol or drugs or gambling. It's a form of pain. Relief that traces back to the family dynamic and what tiger experienced in that fourteen hundred and seventy four square foot home in cypress california. So the i i think. He was tortured soul Personally for the longest time. Which is they said makes his rise now this redemption and part of the story You know just so captivating you know i Thought about the the sex addiction clinic that he went to. And i smiled a little bit because i have a hard time imagining the mental picture of the room with other people with the same type of problems in tiger standing up and saying i'm tiger woods and i'm a sex addict. Yeah you're right it's Well try this went on for size. So he's there for Now in the fifth week of a six week program and there's a very sort of benign title called accountability tuesday. And it's the day that feiger has to sit across from me one on sex therapists counselors If you think it's an o'clock tiger at twelve when it's six counselors at three nine and tiger is reading a statement in which he confesses to all the affairs that he's had since they were married in two thousand four the who the what the where the when it goes on for an hour and it's a devastating moment for the spouse or the significant other as you can only imagine and for the for the addict or the patient. There's a tremendous sense of relief. That comes at that moment in time to say you know all the lives and all the deception our out but for the The person across from you and it's the reason they don't do it anymore. The the impact is it's like we right. It's like getting stabbed in the heart and the back at the same time but this was what tiger went through and he went through it in a very public way. I mean remember what happened when he was there in the national enquirer was hunting him down and they got a shot of him at the sex clinic. You know he had to go. And stand before whatever. Reasons was to placate sponsors or to be something. Tiger didn't wanna to do but ultimately did to stand for thirteen minutes in an address really the world and apologized for his infidelities things that bill clinton and john edwards and can you know other very prominent politicians and celebrities Never did so you have to look at his life and feel a certain respect for what he did. and putting himself out there but at the same time. I can't even imagine the emotional trauma that he going through. Let's talk about tiger woods. The golfer he is the most talented golfer who ever lived. But what makes him in. Light of the others. Like jack nicklaus arnold palmer The best that ever lived his will You know this killer instinct that he had the only one that that the people that we talked to from the lights of you know brandel chamblee to other Very topnotch tour caddies with jack was until tiger was the greatest closer in the game. Even though you know he finished second you know what i think it was. What nineteen different times during the course of his career majors He was still the greatest closer when his name goes up on the leaderboard. Everybody knew that they were in for a fight. Tiger was the same way but he also had this incredible savant like ability with club in his hand. there's a couple of shots. You may remember one was in literally a shot in the dark at firestone in two thousand one on the eighteenth fairway he's about one hundred sixty yards from the pin. You can't even see the pin The the the green is being lit by people with lighters and tiger has to get down on his knees or see. The light hits an eight hundred two feet from the pin. Nobody does that then again. He does this week. Later at glen abbey. The canadian open on the eighteenth hole. He's got a one shot lead. He's in he's drives the ball into a bunker and hits a six iron from two hundred thirteen yards away from the green over about two hundred yards of water trees right two feet past. Attend those kind of shots. You're not dealing with. You're dealing with mother nature. I mean she basically had beaten the rest of the professional. Pga tour greats into the ground. I mean what he did at the two thousand eight. Us open playing on essentially one leg and acl. That was just destroyed in a fracture in his A broken leg in his left leg in a in a missing acl essentially and and he's not seventy two nine one holes to beat rocco mediate and one of the greatest Majors of all time. I mean he just you know how he won i think he was fourteen and one. When when leading going into the final round of of a major he was indomitable he was Unbeatable he won nearly twenty four percent of the tournaments. he entered Nobody does that. And so i think all of that combined with what his impact was on the game on so many other levels. makes them i think arguably the greatest athlete in modern history arm and i'm going to make a statement here and correct me if you think i'm wrong on it but i think the challenge for him going forward. The rest of his life is coming to grips with what he did to himself to his game. And i don't know if he's going to be at the point yet. I think he probably will get there because he seems to be much happier. Much more relaxed. But i think that's going to be something. We all look back and say damn. I wish i had done this or done that. Yeah i think he's. I think he's come through this This d wide last year on memorial day weekend was rock bottom for tiger. It was he had a rockstar cocktail of painkilling and mood-altering drugs in his system I don't think there's any question that he looked in the mirror and said. Is this the kind of father that i wanna be to sam and charlie The spinal fusion really helped but hit tigers. Incredible will and let's not forget. Fifty two thousand people last year died of opiate addiction in this country. So we're not talking about You know your your garden variety of drug problem. That tiger had ki came out of that. And i think he's come out of it More open more grateful. And you're right. I think he is now seeing his life in a way he's never seen it before and is grateful that he is a position now to have a second chance in life. Are we at a point with him that we can talk about his legacy or is the story still not fully written. Oh i think tiger it's not written. I mean you know. If you're talking about a movie and the bike and brag per second alex gibney. Who's the preeminent american documentary film director is partnering with jeff and i to do docu series on tigers life. And there's probably you know six or eight acts already you could easily point to. I don't think it's over yet. I think he's got. I think he's got one more major left in them and i think he but if he doesn't win another golf tournament I think what we are. He is now as a person and the hall and into the light is the greatest triumph of life. It transcends anything. He ever accomplished on a golf course. Yeah i agree wholeheartedly with that statement We got about three minutes left. What do you want people to take away from. This book armand. Well i think that's a good question. You ask these very simple questions on the listed. The kind of answers that you know we don't often get say and i say well we wrote it for. We voted for a lot of different people in a lot of different reasons. I think one. There's not that many people in the world known by one name And that's tiger one word tighter I think we want people to understand Who this guy is in the price that he paid to entertain us to change the game of golf To throw us on a saturday and sunday afternoon in a major we would you know. Walk away from what we witnessed and be like walking on air but what happened to tiger woods after the you know. The telecast was over in the cheering stop. What kind of life did he have in. It's a cautionary tale. It's a cautionary tale for parents. Who are now helicoptering. The hell out of their kids lives and You know be careful what you wish for kind of a thing and we wrote it for you know strange way for not only the the pure golfer Who loves the game and wants to be reminded in entire tigers greatness. But there's a female audience here too because there's so much tigers life revolves around women whether it's his first girlfriend and dina grefell or a leash amirah marks first white who became a second mother to tiger. Tiger's relationship with his with his mother the dissolution of tigers marriage too. Ill and there's a lot to be learned in this book about Male female relationships as well. We have about a minute left but the three years you put into this all the people that you've talked to and everything. Are you happy with the way this came out. Oh my god yes. I mean you know i mean you just you devote so much of your life. I mean i literally the last year. I've lived and breathed this book in a way i've never lived and breathed any other project and it was. I said it's a you know you're basically throwing yourself off a cliff hoping that you know it it it resonates with an audience and it has the critics of loved it People that have read friends of mine and others that have read have been captivated by it.

This is america sports talk show sports byline usa. Here's ron steve. Lavin joins us on sports. Byline the former college basketball coaching now. Of course you see him on television with abc and espn but twelve years in total down at ucla. Seven of those twelve years. He was the head coach down there. You know steve When coaches get hired. It's always the first day to. They're getting fired. And i've often wondered how coaches except that emotionally and mentally knowing that this is the beginning to the end. It's a good question. I think a big aspect to coaching is understanding the rules of engagement. And i think as athletes and it's coaches you understand that eventually comes to an end and so you have that context that mindset almost a certain level of training Going into the profession doesn't make it any easier when you ultimately get fired. It's still challenging. It's still Down it still takes the wins out of your sales but I think the resiliency is there because coaches naturally understand the response mechanisms How to regenerate how to reinvent the same lessons that your parents teach you that sports teach you and the same lesson you try to impart to the players that played for you which is bounced back to persevere to problem solve all these things that sound corny or cliche things. We learned on sesame street or electric company. Here mr rogers but at the end of the day it's those values that really sustain us and our enduring one of the things. I find interesting. Is that in most jobs. Your performance determines whether you stay employed or not and when you're a coach there can be so many exterior things that determine whether you stay employed or not. How hard is that to accept because we're conditioned in a totally different way. You're right. There are a lot of ironies or paradoxes to Coaching at the highest level Whether it's collegiately or professionally and there's some of that shakespearean aspect at any high level of business and so when you coach at a place like ucla or notre dame football of the yankees and dodgers and pro baseball. The celtics nixon lakers and pro basketball. A you understand. There's a unique a standard in terms of the level of excellence. That's expected and today. It's about creating streams and if your team's not making deep runs in the ncaa tournament college basketball or going to bcs games in college football if you're not putting fannies in the seats if booster stop big checks so you can stay up with the joneses in terms of facilities and in terms of Recruiting budget and beyond will pay top dollar for athletic programs of. And there's going to be a change so politics business sports a lot of universals their common threads that run through them and again. You try as a coach. Do the best that you can in terms of what you have control over and then you know other factors come into play. There might be a change in terms of the chancellor president of university. Someone of the border regions doesn't like you could be your players. Get in trouble in terms of accepting money from an agent or point shaving a number of problems off the field. In terms of legal issues we see with jurisprudence issues every day when you pick up the newspaper so Yet at the same time the teacher or coach or a parent you also embrace those challenges and at times the kids. You coach exceed your expectations. At other times they disappoint you very similar to Parenting teaching in the classroom. I really enjoyed In my case my fifteen years coaching wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. Three years of purdue under great mentor jean. Katie twelve years. Ucla were had the opportunity to learn. And jim erica. Who won the national championship and ninety five and also john wooden Present so strongly felt at ucla and he was a great ally of friend. A mentor master teacher. Ninety seven years young still learning still growing a great example for all of us incredible stamina and energy very lucid and sharp In the same conversation. I've told people coach wooden. Oh quote the bible. Gandhi mother teresa lincoln shakespeare jfk. Walt whitman Recites a mills brothers lyrics in the nineteen thirties. So he covers the whole gamut as well. As the to one full chords own press The high post offense and recalling a games from his days in indiana state as a coach or south bend. Central high school as a coach His years in the navy as well as great. Glory years ucla. So i really treasure my time and coaching yet. I'm enjoying And and being here today with you. What percentage would you put on the ability for any coach to be able to control their destiny. Think about that for a second because invariably usually it's more than fifty fifty that you can control your destiny but when it comes to coaching i mean after all you said of all the things that you have to deal with the politics. The money raising The administration the recruiting getting in trouble. What percentage then do you determine your your future. Well i think it still comes back most importantly to having personnel having Talent but within that there are a lot of potential potholes it's it can be a slippery slope and we'd like to thank the. We have more control than we really do. But i think as a coach on a daily basis If you are doing the right things making the right decisions. You enhance your chances for longevity in coaching. i think most importantly it's about the integrity of you have good integrity and you're a good person. You make good decisions. You make good choices You can coach a long time now. May not be at one particular institution. I think the days of john wooden who coached. Ucla twenty seven years or mike shosh ascii. Who's right around the thirty season As a head coach for the blue devils or jim behind jim calhoun lute olson. A gene katie was twenty five years of purdue. I think those days are are pretty much over There there the last of the mohicans. And i think in this era. We're gonna see more coaches who have great success in jews to move on to the nba. Or if they don't have success they're gonna get bounced But it ends up coming back down great personnel. And then what you have that personnel. It's all the basics it's conditioning it's fundamentals. It's team play. It's getting your team to execute quickly imprecisely under duress and pressure conditions under the bright lights when there's a lot at stake so at the end of it if i had to put a percentage i'd say coach determines maybe sixty five percent of his fate or destiny and there's that other forty five thirty five percents That's in play. That's pretty risky. Yeah i wouldn't have expected it to be that high. And yet when i think about coaches In the nomadic nature of the profession How do you balance between having a personal life and the people in that personal life and also trying to be a successful coach like that's another great challenge in any profession. Coaching is similar to wall street. In terms of the twenty four seven three hundred sixty five days a year proposition. And so you have to balance. I think the family The spiritual aspect of your life your help And i was fortunate to become the head coach. Ucla thirty two years old and was fired at thirty eight years old. And not just saying this like an anthony. Robbins and norman. Vincent peel positive. You know thinking. I really was a blessing for me. Because at a young age i was able to see The profession at the highest level and also set me up for this position with abc espn because that experience allow me to bring the expertise and perspective to the broadcast. So the viewer at home can kind of go inside the thinking of a coach At the same time the ability slowdown. Because you live at a much more deliberate pace. There's more autonomy in broadcasting and there isn't coaching and time smell my mother and father avenue chance to visit up here in the bay area this week at the time with brothers and sisters nieces and nephews had the chance to get married last year. So there's no doubt it's healthier balanced existance yet you miss the competition the camaraderie with your staff and the kids. You missed the teaching. You miss being on a college campus. You miss that intellectually charged environment When you're part of a university like ucla. So it's trade-offs Is what it really comes down to. And you just have to work to find that balance. I think john wooden was a great example of someone who had great success in had that balance but he retired Thirty plus years ago. It's much different now. With the information age the electronic information age the internet The consensus building happened so quickly. And just the overall professionalization of college sports it's less amateur than it was when he retired although he had his own. Set of challenges you know. Each era has their own challenges but But clearly it's something you have to work at. And i think age experience brings on perspective and wisdom and so a coaches as they go through their career. I think get smarter in terms of how they work. And they find ways to balance These these families spiritual and and still having to win and and deliver results. We only got about thirty seconds before we have to bring. But i remember john madden telling me one time that he turned around one day and the next thing he realized that his son was driving and that he had missed a whole period of his life. Is it worth it. I think it's it's coaches or teachers alike. Great parents it's a passion and either you have that great desire to be a part of competitive sports Or you don't and for me. I wouldn't trade My coaching experience for fifteen years for anything in the world yet at the same time. I'm really grateful to have had this opportunity in broadcasting completely different career. New mentors working with brent musburger an icon in the sport television industry. So it's a blessing. Steve lebanon's join us when we come back on the other side.

Lavender's joined assad sports byline of course now on television with abc an espn but the former head coach at ucla. And as you heard him say a little bit earlier was a graduate assistant for the legendary big ten purdue coach gene katie. I alluded before the break to a recruiting that is the backbone of success for any program and i just think today when you've got eighteen year old kids coming out of high school and you've got coach after coach coming into the living room and whispering in their ear. You know we can do this for you. You can get this type of education. you can start playing At this point in our program. I mean how daunting is the task of recruiting. While i think what we've really seen in recent years what's changed is because prospects are beginning to be recruited at such a young age. we're talking third. Fourth fifth grade these future prodigies the future. Garnett's kobe bryant and lebron james is Their on the radar screen of college coaches and of shoe companies and of sports agents and so the process begins In terms of young people performing and young people having an awareness of the leverage they have because their guests are skills or abilities and it just is what it is. It's not a cynical or skeptical. take on things. That's where the game is. And as a result you know young players fifth sixth seventh eighth graders flying around the country Stay in a nice hotels in vegas or florida and playing these. Aau tournaments and they've got an unlimited amount of free apparel shoes that are given to them. In some cases the families are flown around country to participate and watch in these tournaments. They play on national. Tv and high school They're playing madison square garden jordan. Classic plan in the mcdonald's all american game and being seen around the world covered by usa. Today they read about themselves on the internet with all these scouting services so by the time these kids get to a college campus as a freshman. It's not like twenty five years ago where they were the wide eyed bushy tailed freshman In omaha of a college campus off putting on a ucla uniform or plan for saint. John's or playing for duke. Kansas north carolina They come in with the expectation to play a year or two and move on to the nba a lottery and so The recruiting process difficult from the standpoint that Scholarship doesn't mean what it used to or the opportunity to play kentucky Doesn't mean what it used to fifteen or twenty years ago to a player and as a result you've got to be creative in your recruiting and each individual player has different needs different ones different desires. You have to find out their hot buttons. You've got to connect with their support group in their family. You have to establish a level of trust with that player and he's got to believe you're going to help him get where he wants to go in terms of his dreams. Steve was the most ask question you got when you went into a recruits home. I think what do we have in place at. La to help a player reach that dream or goal playing at the nba level. Occasionally you'd have parents that really. Were interested in the educational aspect of a college athletes experience There were some concern parents about the academic support system in place to make sure that their particular son or daughter would be on track to get their degree. But i think most often it's about the mba. But don't programs i mean. Don't the kids ask more about the coach. Don't they go to a university because of the coach and the program that they have maybe the possibility of going on to the next level after college. I mean i think academics are important but to be quite candid with you. I can't imagine that to be at the top of anybody's list when they're making college decision. No i think There are those exceptional families have interest in choose a school like stanford or Or duke Because their academic reputation. Ucla was fortunate like notre dame and football in that we had not only a world class education and great facilities that great athletic program and play in a great conference and had a great Environment in terms of southern california the social life and the weather. We were tough to beat. I always felt if we got a player to campus. We were going to sign him. We'd be able to close that player. Forty-eight hours the key was making sure getting a kid from the midwest east that they would get to our campus. And a smart coach. Chassis or roy williams or hammered. Jim calhoun would try to close the deal while the prospect was on their campus. Never let him get out the la or southern california because they know they probably lose them once they were out there But i think it's a combination. It's the coach Establishing a relationship with the coach it's the exposure they're going to receive. Its facilities today. You've got to stay up with the joneses. it's a number of things unaccepted california or new york Major city chicago have an advantage because kids. They are aware of branding beginning to build their brand while they're in high school and college so to smoother transition into the nba. Mike shoshefsky when we were sitting and talking one night. I asked him about does it. You know you have a reputation and not screwing up a kid when you get into the duke program. I said what is it that you look for. And he said first of all he says. I never prosecuted anything he said. I don't He's going to playing time. He says because i'm not gonna lie to him. He said but what. I always do if i go into a parents home. And let's just say they have two parents he said. I always make sure that. I ask the parents question. And out of the corner of my eye watched to see whether the kid is going to roll his eyes or not as the parents are answering the question because he says that tells me how he respects authority or not and i had never heard a coach say that the character issue the the blending the chemistry that you have to have to have a successful program is that the toughest part aside. I mean the skill is what the skill is going to be but is the chemistry part. Steve hardest part and putting a college team together if the chemistry aspect and also the intangible qualities or attributes or characteristics that are sometimes difficult to measure in a short period of time. And you need a greater window of opportunity to evaluate A particular prospect so When i was on high school campuses. I like to ask a lotta questions. Not just to the school. Principal the vice principal Teachers but also a custodians Classmates of that particular prospect that we were recruiting wanted To find out from the people around a particular player about his character. What type of person Does he happened to be an obviously are working. The phones as well and you get a chance to watch him but how. He interacts with his teammates. How interact with his coaches. How does he respond to setbacks. When he's sitting on the bench is each year. Enforce when things don't go well in terms and officials call or have an off game What are his response mechanisms. Does he respond the right way. Those are all some of the tangible aspects. That you're touching on. Let me ask you whether there is a racial component to recruiting. And what i mean by that is is that obviously. The game is dominated by african american players. Many of those kids come from socio economic situations that are very difficult. Many probably come from single parent homes. There is the Kind of latch. On when i say where somebody says. I hope they make it to the pros. Because they're going to get something out of this as well and so the expectations of maybe a minority player coming to college in wanting not only what they're getting in scholarship but additional moneys or our benefits in some particular way is. Is that a tough situation today in college. Basketball is an element of players at the college level today. Well i think there is clearly the challenge that young people see and the media as chronicled The incredible amounts of dollars involved with the bcs bowl games in football the ncwa transparent basketball and so young people See schools are making millions of dollars. that coaches are making millions of dollars and yet they're struggling To be able to have enough money to buy a winter coat or to get back home at christmas time To see their family or to be able to pay for their family to come out and watch them play during their college careers. I'd have a couple bucks in their pocket To buy burger or go to a matinee. Take a sweetheart on a date and so there. Is this real dilemma. I think that the ncwa faces because Young people are aware that college athletics. is a billion dollar industry i mean. Cbs paid the nc. Double a. six billion dollars the rights and the nc double a. tenant and an athlete walks through the bookstore on campus and sees the likeness of his jersey being sold And yet they're struggling to pay their cell phone bill than it does create some friction. Some tension there and the only thing at this point That i could see the nc double a. Moving towards is creating some type of financial aid based on need that would be available to all athletes. male female soccer players The olympic sport athletes that aren't necessarily the high revenue Creating sports and yet those athletes are still deserve it because they work hard they come to the school to get their degrees and so create almost nc double a bank Financial aid for students. It'd be available and that's different than pain. An athlete based on their performance. So you still keep the amateur spirit alive but when there are those kids as you're mentioning that really have real needs financially. The ncw could be there to provide those dollars. We got about thirty seconds left. The the athlete at the college level is getting what they deserve in light of what they generate at. This point No i agree. And i think that what the ncw has to do. Is that understand that going to school in los angeles is different from going to school in iowa and that These kids probably should get a stipend. I've been a proponent for giving these kids a thousand dollars male female by the way revenue non revenue sports if they took a portion of every broadcast contract put it into an annuity to generate revenue. So that those schools that didn't have the money could go ahead into that fund and be able to pay those athletes. That sort of thing. I you know. I there's been a crusade with an. We'll we'll talk a little bit more about that. Steve lavin has joined us here on sports. Byline the former. Ucla basketball coach.

Here's ron steve. Lavin is with us on sports byline. Usa and Steve i understand. You had a chance to go back into coaching. But you decided not to take the opportunity. And i was just wondering. Did you feel you need more time away from the game. Were you happy with your television work where you're looking for a different type of challenge. Well it was. A combination was the north carolina state position in april of two thousand and six and i knew there. Ethnic director well lee fowler. He had formerly been the head of the ncwa selection committee. And it was a crossroads for me where i was just getting established and comfortable with being a broadcaster. I'd spent at that point. Two full seasons with brent musburger and felt the had my broadcasting legs and had a second career off and running and yet i was very tempted by north carolina state because it has all the elements are aspects of coach. Looks for great tradition to national championships They're a great league. The acc a very fertile recruiting ground in terms of that region of the country rate facilities unlimited resources in terms of dollars. the ability to attract a great assistant a coaching corps So it was something that took me about a week and i turn to a lot of mentor. Spent time on the phone with mother and father. Obviously a lot of long walks With my wife. Mary ann gene. Katie pete. Newell jay right at villanova. Tom izzo michigan state and most importantly and most influential was john wooden and we had a lot of talks and ultimately it's something you gotta sleep on prey on and i really felt At that particular crossroads intersection of my life I wanted to return Abc an espn and they stepped up with a new six-year contract and i wasn't trying to leverage that My agent wasn't even involved It was just the first coaching opportunity. That came along That i really grappled with in terms of possibly returning and And i haven't looked back since i'm really enjoying what i'm doing as a broadcaster. Let's talk about the coach wooden for a moment. One of the early parts of my career was at the nc double a final four. That was down in los angeles. And i was a young sportscaster at that time. And after he had had met the press in the press conference i kind of cornered him and did a quick interview with him out in the hallway. And i'll never forget one thing he said to me he goes looking at the stat sheet and he looked at the stats and he was looking at the turnovers. And he said you know ron turnovers basketball likes walks in baseball. They'll kill you every time. I mean it was just it was just something that was seared in my memory over the years and i don't know how to put my finger. I mean there's a lot of great things that you can say about coach wooden but i think consistency is the thing that comes to my mind. If i had to pick one word for him it would be consistency. What would that one word be from you. I'd say compassion but consistency clearly was one of the key elements in his ability to get his teams to achieve at a high level. As a matter of fact He was a big proponent of making sure that his teams never played in the peaks or valleys emotionally. One of them very even keeled like a great poker player. You think of a jamaal wilkes He was very even keeled. Luau cinder a very even keel. Didn't want a lot of adulation or celebration when things were going well and he didn't want a lot of dejection or wasted energy on being down when things weren't going well a matter of fact he fought that at the end of games. What is team left the floor. He he didn't want people to be able to tell if they hadn't attended the game just walked in weather. The team had won or lost. I think that's a big part of why they were able to win. Seven consecutive titles eighty eight straight wins and ten championships in twelve years and have such a dominant run. But what's interesting. Is you know coach. Wooden didn't win that first national championship until he had been on the job at ucla. Fifteen or sixteen years and being in a tough league going against more of harsh minute. Ralph miller and newell and all the other great coaches. The he faced is where he really honed his craft and became a master and then once he got it right. He was pretty tough to beat from that point forward. You know what was interesting. And i use the word consistency after i had thought about it for a long period of time During the years that he was their society was changing. There was upheaval down in los angeles the personalities that came in you mentioned about kareem abdul-jabbar. Bill walton who was somewhat of a radical. And then you had you know. The guys that came out of the the black community and everything and yet they. They knew that the way coach wooden was no matter what the situation was. They could count on one something being consistent and i really think that that was the foundation for that long run of success that consistency on his part. You're right and if you go back within that consistency holding onto the values that he felt a were enduring would serve his players. Well not just in sports but in life These were universals That our fundamentals of achievement fundamentals of lean. A good life. You go back to South bend central high school in the forties Indiana state then. Ucla in the late forties fifties sixties and seventies so that's parts of what four decades parts of five decades and but again. His teaching is universal. But there's a lot of flexibility in there as well to be able to hold onto those values with how you present them. How you reach your students are your pupils is really a critical aspect of whether or not you're going to be successful and continue inspire and motivate young people to maximize their their abilities. Their gifts their talents. And i think that's what people underestimate With coach wooden as though he believed held onto strong values. There was a lot of flexibility and a very creative thinker and in terms of how he matter of fact he took psychology classes us at ucla. He would sit in on those classes and be able to integrate some of that into his teaching also learned from other coaches. He is the only person of course to be inducted into the basketball hall of fame. Not only as a player but also as a coach. Let me switch gears. I've always been interested in strategy coaches put forth during the course of a game. Do you remember a game. An important game in which you did something strategy wise that shut the door on the game that really closed it out and created the victory. Yeah i think Their games go back as a coach. Both where you cost your team and also where you helped your team. And then there's a lot of games in between where there wasn't one defining moment or particular adjustment That had an effect on the game one way or the other But one instance would-be. We played michigan in the second round of the ncaa tournament when they had tractor trailers matter of fact. Was the last time the michigan wolverines were in the nc double a. tournament and we lost our center. Come down the stretch. Gilani mccoy for the season so we are a little undersized we. Jr henderson. chris johnson. Toby bailey a baron. Davis and earl watson were freshmen. Guards barron early in that game actually tore his acl in only able to play a limited amount of time. But in that game. Because we're facing a player of great size kind of a baby shaquille o'neal and tractor trailer. We decided to invert our offense. Bring our big way from the basket. We posted up our guards more often. We wanted to get tractor out from under the basket where he'd have chase. A jared henderson was highly skilled a six eight six nine Four men who was comfortable playing on the perimeter and his ability to play make and drive off of a slower lumbersome Tractor trailer was able to create. A lot of offense force also wore down tractor trailer Because he was chasing henderson around the perimeter where he preferred set up like a big bear in the basket area so a number of aspects. They're both offensively and defensively. And then in that game defensively. We did a little bit of a gamble. But we're gonna triple team tractor. Every time he caught it just like bs on honey like a venus fly trap collapsed around him and we are fortunate to michigan. Didn't shoot the ball very well with the open. Looks they did get and we were quick enough to collapse to the post and then scrambled backout contest. Jump shots but i'd say inverting our offense in that second round game against michigan Was something strategically. That really helped us on the flip. Side i think i cost our team. A first round loss detroit We had the youngest team in school history of the youngest team in the country at that time twelve. Freshmen and sophomores. And this is when baron and earl were now sophomores Dang troll me so drawn rush. Matt barnes were freshmen ray. Young as well and in that game I should have played some zone defense. And i hadn't brought along zone defense over the course the year enough to where i was confident in implementing it in that game and i think it cost us because detroit had very quick small team. They were able to get around his dribble penetrate getting fouled trouble. They only score. I think two or three field goals in the second half of the hoosier dome in this first round. nc double a. tournament upset but they're able to get to the foul line twenty plus times now from that experience. What i learned was to be sure in the next three years we made runs deep into the tournament into the second weekend of play and we utilized a match up zone that i brought along over the course of the year. And have confidence to you. So you learn from those setbacks. Going back to coach wooden. He was fifty three years old when he won his first national championship. He coached games to get to that point where he finally won one and i think the key is being a willing student being able to learn and again. That goes back to flexibility. Not being stubborn or hard headed too prideful. Or let your ego get involved. You can learn from your opponent you can learn from your failures and sounds corny. A cliche going back to mr rogers sesame street but that's really how we move forward and we become wiser and have a better perspective as a result. What are you know about yourself. Now steve that you didn't know when you were coaching. I mean i'm you move beyond coaching. Ucla you've been in broadcasting now and i know you to be a reflective type of person that says you know my past experiences are going to help me in the future. What have you learned. I'd say most importantly in life It's mentors Going back to your mother and father. I was fortunate to have incredible teachers and parents in the home been married. Fifty seven years My father was a teacher over the barrett dominican college of marin san diego state cal berkeley high school My mother raised six. Children has a phd in raising children but also after raising all of us went back and got her degree in art history at dominican and then went to work for eighteen years. Help pay for college education southern pacific and potala equitable here in san francisco so we had incredible parents but then going back to high school coaches a certain youth league coaches A high school counselor teacher college professor a people invested in your career saw potential in you. john wooden gene. Eighty of bob knight. Mike shasta jerry tarquini and my college coach kevin wilson high school coach hayward a now brent musburger just a number of people that help us get to particular stage in our life and so any success that we have any values The we try and exhibit are result of having great teachers or mentors. And so i'd say that's probably the most important aspect when i look at the arca my career. The last twenty years in coaching broadcasting is that were only as good as the people around us and the people that invested in us and shared and willing to give their time and saw some potential in you. Bring you along or nudge in the right direction. We only have a couple of minutes left but I think marin county was always kinda the butt of jokes on the late night television shows about the hot tubs and the weed and everything. But you know out of that county came yourself successful basketball coach and a very successful football coach. In p carol. And huey lewis huey lewis robin williams right of course buddy. Bianca lana shortstop. The city royals world series team coached by why herzog. You guys ever become a good. I mean i know the county. I lived there. It's a good question so beautiful right with the terrain is like like being raised and club. Med i think you have a favorite memory about growing up in. Marin i'd say being a part of state championship high school team that won fifty six. Straight game steve. Kennel orders getting inducted into the santa clara hall of fame this week. I was a great team. Jimmy cy dan hunt doug dibley craig nelson one of my best friends so a being part of a team that won fifty six fifty eight straight games won back to back state titles. I think that really was the inspiration for pursuing a career in coaching which then set up the career in broadcasting and Someone once said that And you'd agree with this that We get to work in the toy department of life and get paid for. It's a pretty good gig and so you give thanks. You're grateful you count your blessings on a daily basis. Any regrets at all. Oh i'm sure you go back. And there's all types of intersections or crossroads in particular games or relationships with particular players You know where you know. You could have done a better job or you take on Just like a good parent does The responsibility For something you could have done better to help a young person. But in the grand scheme in terms of the stages and ages my life. I really consider myself grateful how my mother and father be up here on the barrier this week visiting them and to been able to work at the highest level of coaching at purdue and ucla and now broadcasting abc an espn Someone told me bob barker. The price is right. Let's make a deal coming out. Chapman college envisioned to player. This would be your life over the next twenty years. You'd say i'll take it. I'll take that life you know.

Three with the colts was a second overall selection in the nfl draft by the green bay packers and he has recently come out and admitted for the first time that he took anabolic steroids in college while he was playing at michigan state but he never failed drug testing college. You know that was a while ago tony. What was the motivation for coming out and revealing this will run I was gonna. I tried to write this book ten years ago. When i retired from indianapolis and i figured now that the football days are over i can come out and write this book but all the big publishers. All the big publishing houses they went to basically had told me that nobody's interested. It's an old story and yada yada. So i kinda i kinda just left it alone and i was like well. You know what maybe maybe nobody is interested in and and i just won't pursue it and then five years ago I kind of did it again and had the same reaction and then what ended up happening now is my co author. Sharon shot elrod. She kinda grab the bull by the horns and she said you know we gotta tell this story and she ended up getting A publisher to take it and And and we sold it and so you know. This whole motivation started ten years ago to help people kind of be aware of you know. Hey look these are the mistakes i made. These are the things. I did It's kinda like a cautionary tale for all levels of athletes from you know from high school to professional and You know. I just kept running into those roadblocks for for a few years until until my co author kind of grabbed the bull by the horns of said. No we can do this. And then she did it tony. You certainly have a time period of perspective. In other words you can look back to what it was like when you're eighteen years old and you decided to do this and now you look at it today. What does that perspective in time done. As far as the way you look at this and what you did well. I mean there's a listen the older i get the more the more right. My dad was you know in the smarter. He is because all the things he told me. When i was young and when i was a teenager and i and i thought i knew everything and he kept you know he would say a lot of the same things a lot of parents say to their kids and and i would be like a know it all right. I had all the answers. But the older i get the more i see that he was right and the more i see how things you know. Change as you get older and you learn from your mistakes and you know at eighteen years old. I mean that was bulletproof. And you know. I had what i thought was the world in the palm of my hands And then now you know at forty two. You're kinda like hey you know. I mean that was quite a different perspective than it is now. Now there's a lot more maturity. A lot of that comes from making mistakes in my life and and most importantly learning from those mistakes and not continuing to make mistakes. I mean the would be to be forty two years old and still making the same mistakes. You're making it eighteen. How much did the Big jock mentality and also big man on campus probably is a better way to put it feed into the decisions that you made as far as getting involved with steroids. Were you know for me. The most important. I mean i had a goal and you know or or two. Goals was education at michigan state. The other one was to use michigan state springboard to get to the nfl them play at the next level. And i felt that You know. I had tunnel vision and i was so focused and so driven to Succeeded and to give myself the best possible opportunity You know i. I remember my freshman year at michigan state. You know writing down my goals on a piece of paper and one of those goals was to be the number one. Play the number one pick in the nfl draft draft year. And that was you know. Five years prior to being taken number two and So i i was very focused very driven very much. You know a tunnel vision. I had the blinders on. And and everything i did was focused on getting my education and You know performing on the football field and and trying to get to that next level so not so much. I mean the big man on campus basically ended up being a side effect of my goals and But the main motive for the whole five years of michigan state get to the next level and try to be that number one pick in the draft. Tony had you not have been involved with him prior to getting to college. Was that the first time you've got involved with steroids. No i i got my first time ever was in may of my senior year. Nineteen eighty-four was. I had a month left in high school. And that was the first time i ever took them. And then obviously. I took them that summer before michigan state and then and then the five years of michigan state and then you know. The last time i took them was in may of nineteen eighty nine. Well the reason why i asked that question is how hard or how easy was it for you to get steroids when you were a senior in high school extremely extremely easy And you know you're you're surrounded you kinda know if you go to weight rooms if you go to somebody you know you can even go to some of these family spas and get this stuff not as easily as if you go to some of the harder core lifting places But it's easy to to get the stuff and from what from what i see today. You know and. I'm not even running in those circles. I can still see you know i. I can almost pinpoint the guy who who if he doesn't do it or if he doesn't get it for you he knows who does and And it's just one of those. I don't know it's one of those things that i it seems like as long as athletes are going to be willing to take it. They'll be somebody they're willing to sell it. Let me ask you a question. Tony and that is the fact that given your approach to football and the fact that you wanted to be the first overall pick in the nfl draft where you're an easy mark for somebody to come up and say. Hey kid i got something that's going to help you realize your dreams that never happened to me My my experience was the opposite. I pursued it And you know. I had people come up to me and say you know what are you doing. I mean you're getting bigger you getting stronger getting faster And you know depending on who it if it was somebody i felt like i could trust would be honest with them but for the most part obviously i kept things to myself but You know it was in my in my instance. It was me you know going. You know taking the action to find out it. Wasn't anybody coming to me. How much was ignorance bliss when it came to administrators at michigan state and just across the board in college football. Do you think you know the trainers at michigan state. They did They sat me down. i wanna say my third or fourth year there and you know they flat out asked me if i took steroids and and they flat out said you know i mean you're getting bigger and you're getting strong where at a you know an enormous rate and you know i flat out lied to them And they they still Did what i call their due diligence. I mean they said. Even after. I said no i'm not on. They listen even though you're not on them or you're telling us you're not on them. These are the side effects of these are the things they can do to these. Are these are the you know problems that you might have later on in life so You know they had no proof. Because i never tested positive and I was very cautious on stuff like that not to bring it to the football facility and then you know not to. Have you know a bottle of steroid laying around. My locker was always you know kept in my dorm room or am i wherever living so you know. I was careful that way but You know it's kinda like it was the worst kept secret in college football. So you know you you kinda question and you say well. I don't know that they know. Didn't they know They talk to me. And i lied to them so i guess they did their due diligence. But you know it seemed like everybody else kind of knew what about the other players at michigan state invariably if one players using it Usually your peers know what's going on. Was there what other use of steroids. Ed michigan state by other players You know that's the question. I'm not going to answer. I'll tell you why because you know the the whole thing with. This was the mistakes i made. And i don't even know. I said i wouldn't name names and i never will I don't even want to implicate players by not naming names or saying anything. I mean That's that wasn't my business. My business was the things i were doing and obviously the mistakes. I was making and And you know now coming out and and really owning up to it and saying hey look. This is what i did. I made mistakes. I was wrong for doing them. And the motivation for coming out with now is you know. Hopefully you know Have a cautionary tale or warning For the young athletes now we got about forty five seconds before we have to break here. And the reason why i brought that up tony not looking for names as much as insight because as a play by play announcer for a major college team division. One a team. I certainly knew from what. I heard from players Around that team. When i was there preparing for ballgames that it was going on that team as well so i just assumed that i wasn't saying just michigan state. I was just thinking across the board in college football. We sure and and i totally understand. And and you know. I've said this and some interviews earlier this month that it back when i played i would say there was ten somewhere between ten to twenty percent Of players probably using it across the board in college. Tony mandarich was with us. And of course you know the name. He was drafted second overall in the nineteen eighty nine. Nfl draft green bay and says that he embarrassed himself in his three seasons with green bay. By the way the name of the book coming out my dirty little secret steroids. Alcohol and god the tony mandarich story. And we're gonna find out how he was able to get beyond the testing and never test positive for the use of steroids.

Mandarich join us on sports byline and again. We're talking about the book. That's coming out my dirty little secrets and tony. I alluded before the break about the fact that you never failed a drug test while you were at college at michigan state or even when you went to the ball games like the rose bowl of the gator bowl how able to do that well And they told you. I mean the biggest mistake they made the meaning. You know the nc double a. Was they told you when the drug test was We michigan state. Never got drug testing unless you made a bowl game and You know in that state. I went to four bowl games and the first one was my freshman year. They didn't even drug test. It was the cherry bowl i think. It was the inaugural year of it but In in birmingham alabama we went to the all american bowl. And then my third year we went nowhere and then we went to rose bowl. And we went the gator bowl. And you know you know the test is coming up if you're at the halfway point of the season if you're you know five and one and it looks like you're going to do well and make a bowl game you just get up steroids and then And you know you'll test clean There was obviously a glitch there for me when we went to the rose bowl because we tested for the rose bowl Both schools you have michigan state at their respective schools about three weeks before the game. And you know. As soon as i knew i would clean I got back on the steroids and there are certain steroids you can take that. Are real fast acting and you get stronger. Like within forty eight hours So i got back on those and figured you know. I have two three weeks to get some strength back before the rose bowl game. Well when we went to pasadena. They made an announcement that they were going to test both schools again. So you know. I got kinda caught between a rock and a hard place there and I ended up You know getting creative and cheating on that drug test And you know the deepest of how do that are fairly amusing. And is that where the fake urine test urine sample came yes exactly and And and all those details on the books. I can't tell you gotta leave something for the reader but now i mean there's nothing amusing about cheating on a drug test You know because it's it's not. It's not fair i mean but when you read it and the way i did it you'll you'll you'll find it amusing and but yeah i mean. It wasn't hard to cheat on a drug test back. Then you know. The rules were in a strict And one of the biggest things for me deterrence for me for not feeling steroids in the nfl was the drug test in the nfl. The rules the way they did it world harsher than they were in college. Well there's where i was going to next you didn't did they test you at the. Nfl combine yes. They did. But i mean i knew when the combine was so i had obviously got knocked plenty of time. You were pretty sophisticated about when to get on a win to get off. Where did you get this knowledge or was it just something you learned over a period of time of having used them well You know i. I guess a lot of the if you wanna call it. Sophistication is is common sense You know you know oil-based steroids will stay in your system a lot longer than a water bay steroid and you know you know people do this stuff and you kind of get their input and You know at that point. I was lucky enough to have known somebody that really really knew their stuff with it and you know he said listen. If you need this much time to test clean you know you need eight weeks. If you're taking this you need twelve weeks. If you're taking this on some of them you need you know. Six months oh And obviously we stayed away from those but You know. I guess there was a certain amount of sophistication i mean. You had a calendar marked it off to you. Know to count the days and then you even left yourself extra time. Because you know you didn't want to make a mistake and test positive. Why were you a bust in the nfl You know the biggest. I mean i truly feel. I was a bust in green bay I think the indianapolis years were redemption years for me. But there's no doubt that i was a bust in in green bay and the biggest thing that happened in green bay that nobody knew about was the drug and alcohol abuse behind the scenes for me and i was so focused on the steroids. And and you know whenever they'd look at me. The only word that would come to mind would be steroids that they weren't sitting the obvious. And that was you know the fact that i was killing myself every day with you know drug and alcohol abuse jason peter. I think you know that story. And i had him here on the program. And i've gotta dip be honest with you tony over all the years in. I've been doing this show for twenty years now. I have never talked to an athlete. That was candid about how bad it was for him. Was it similar like that for you as well. Well yeah you know. It was and. I've seen a lot of jason's interviews interviews and he you know he has a fantastic story and you know. I mean our stories parallel so much You know he went to. We both went to big schools that We're very well known. The you know at the college level and i mean he's a great player and it seems that He he ended up going more. You know staff to the painkillers. He went more street drugs where i stayed more pharmaceutical and But the pain you know pain is pain. And when you're in the gutter your in the gutter. I don't care if you're drinking or taking street drugs or taking pharmaceuticals when you're killing yourself. You're killing yourself but Yeah i mean he's got an unbelievable story and You know it's great that he's doing what he's doing and trying to help people what type of perspective and understanding have you come to all of this and what you went through why you did it and where you are today tony. Well you know when you take a step back and you know now when you take a step back for me. I mean i got sober thirteen and a half years ago in nineteen ninety five and even two three years after i got sober when my head started clearing up. I take a step back and you try to you. Start to see what kind of person you are. What drives you what you believe in and things like that and you know my drive you know for success in my goals was so high and and even is high today You know the fact that i would take you know obviously steroids to reach those goals and And you know it's a tough thing because because obviously steroids work and the you know the bad part about steroids are the health issues and the non control of them. And you know the cheating and stuff like that so it. It's tough and it's hard on young athletes not just young athletes but but all athletes especially since there's drug test against the rules but if you see your teammate getting away with it and having success not just getting away with it but having physical athletic success on the field it becomes a huge them tation But you know you know in the long run. It's not worth it. It's not worth it. It's it is cheating Even if you don't get caught it as cheating and and most of all you're cheating yourself you know. I think you can say that now because you're forty two years old. I'm sure that when you were going through it that rationalization that you that you used to say that it was alright was certainly a lot different. And that's interesting. Because i've talked to some friends of mine that have been involved and they did cheat. They were olympic athletes as well. And i gotta tell you something tony I have yet to make meet an athlete. Who did not tell me that they thought it was all right that it was worth it that even though they knew it was cheating that to have that moment of glory and maybe the money that went along with it it all justified it in their minds at the moment. And i don't understand that. But then again i'm not the highly skilled athletes or right and and you know i i compare it to you know. Now we're in a business you know my wife and i have a media company. We do photography. we do video production. We do internet marketing and and web design all these things so if someone were to come to me and say if you take this pill you'll become one of the best internet marketers in the world you know and if there's no you know there's no breaking the law and if there's no rules against taking it you know you kind of i mean you kind of take a step back and you go well. Hey i mean look. This means more dollars. This means this so it's no in my opinion. It's no different than the athlete taking steroids to become a better. You know to become stronger. I don't think steroids make you necessarily a better athlete. I think you have to have ability. They do make you stronger which make things you know you can be quicker and stuff like that but you still have to have it upstairs and you still have to have coordination and you still have to have obviously ability that you were born with but you know again if if you compare it to you know i've done interviews with with with The people that are you know just starting out in in media and they're working for the local newspaper and i say to them. Listen if someone says if you this injection once a week you know you're going to be working for. Abc news in about a year got about thirty seconds stony. Go ahead and and so you know. It's a tough thing. I it's it's kinda like you know if you compare it to examples like that it makes people go. Wow you know. I didn't think of it that way but You know i it's it's one of those temptations that i caved into and and you know and and you'll see results in the book. Johnny i wanna thank you very much for sharing the story with us Like with jason. Peter i find it fascinating and i hope people will take away some lessons learned from a tony.

Of course many of you have seen him on. Espn primarily reports on the national football league. So it's appropriate that he has a book out about the nfl and professional football. And i guess maybe football in general. How football explains america fascinating a way that you approach this. How did you come up with philosophy on writing. This book sow well. I haven't spent many many years thinking about writing about the history of pro football. And i didn't really want to write a history The definitive history of the sport of the nfl. Because i felt that had been done before. But when i read all those books i found that they really left out or didn't really discover the answers to fundamental questions about football in american. That is how it was created. And why so. I went back. And i looked at it. You know in the eighteen. Hundreds we re european former european colony. All the european colonies were handed games of soccer and rugby and so early. So when and how did it change. What was the motivation to leave soccer rugby behind and create this indigenous sport. That's more reflective of american society. And i discovered that in eighteen eighty and eighteen eighty two. There were specific meetings that happen at harvard and the university of pennsylvania where they made rules changes to create this. This sport that we know is football to the rules changes. The first two was the first down rule and the quarter creation of the position of quarterback. And if you go back and you read the minutes to those meetings. It's clear that they wanted a game. That reflected the concept of manifest destiny pioneering spirit individual effort And they also wanted a game. That was tougher more violence more brutal And they wanted a game that had much more scoring because it looked like you know from the vantage point of my research. That spectators in the united states were interested in soccer and rugby kind of bored by them and the competitors didn't really liked the game and from those two rules changes began the evolution of the game that we know today that. We're obsessed with call football. Did you have some preconceived ideas when you went into researching this book and when you started writing it and were you surprised by anything. Found in your research. I had a lot of preconceived ideas about it because You know. I wanted to discover why we stopped playing soccer as on as a national sport whereas everybody else in the western hemisphere who has been european colonies inherited soccer and kept with it. So you know. I was determined to find that out for the way the research that i did. I found that you know. Throughout the decades of the late nineteenth century and all the twentieth century every bit of our culture had a profound effect on football and changed it whether it was immigrant culture indian culture african american culture musical culture television hollywood of course military culture and religious culture and you know that fascinated me and that's why i took it chapter by chapter each of these different aspects of american society and how football reflects it and how football was impacted by one of the things that i find interesting. And maybe you were able to pinpoint this in your research but as you know. Baseball is referred to as america's pastime. And i think it did reflect america and its pastoral sense. You know where it was played out in fields and also it's tranquil nature but football really came into its own and i think the violence of football kind of started to reflect the culture of america. At what point did that happen. Where was that crossover from that kind of social laid-back way that people loved baseball to the more violent way that we see in football was gradual over. We're on I still think that baseball is quote unquote national pets time because of the way it marks the time of the year over the long schedule from the spring to the summer of the fall but i think that football is what i call our national obsession and the game of football really started to reflect american society right from the beginning in different ways. That's what i try to prove in my book and it was influenced by different aspects of american culture. Along the way let's let's take an example military culture I have a chapter in the book. Called how football explains west point now general. Douglas macarthur when he came back from world war. One was appointed by woodrow wilson. President woodrow wilson as a superintendent of the military academy at west point and his specific goal. He was charged with cleaning up the athletic programs and making them more competitive making them more hardcore so that the athletic programs in west point really helped forge american military officers in football played an important role in that macarthur. Hide red blake. blake hard. vince. Lombardi on vince. Lombardi coached bill parcells. As basketball coach at saint cecilia. High school in jersey parcells went back to west point and coached and learned about lombardi's ways and then lombardi of course higher bella check and belichick high built. Mix eric man. So what i try to do is show that. There's a dna of military culture about field position and brutality and violence that runs right through from basically nineteen nineteen all the way to the president in football. Certainly bill walsh and also what he as both were men that love. The history also loved military strategies. And they both the real awful lot of books about this ad. Long talks with bill walsh about this but let me ask you about the importance of television because in the book you certainly talk about the importance of what television did as far as making football explode upon our psyche and upon our persona as well. Can you go into that a little bit more about the beyond the obvious why that was so important. Well you know. Ron what i try to prove in the book is just the opposite. I try to prove in the book. And i think i make a very good case. That football was extremely popular before. Tv and before radio on the college level and football was needed by tv. Cbs needed football in the fifties. It was it was a show. It was a story they need to sell. They needed to bring in the male audience to watch their shows in the sixties. Nbc needed football for sure to sell their shows. And that's why they latched onto it. It's clear now that football with tv can't do without football still. Some of the largest audiences watched football fox. When it's wanted to start the fourth network they needed the nfc and they outbid cbs to get the nfc from cbs. So that people would watch their shows. The simpsons married with children in living color and it could create a fourth network. People always have said sociologist and others in explaining the history of football. That tv made football. They got tv's in japan. They got him in germany. They got him in iraq. They gotta in england. Why doesn't tv make football air. And the answer is because football is a truly indigenous american sport. It doesn't compute in those societies. It's a game that really expresses who we are as a people is football more than almost any other. Sports sow a lends itself to the cemetery of life. If you know what. I'm talking about well. You know good question and answered that question by looking at one simple thing in football that separates it from all other sports the huddle no other sport in the world has the huddle the concept human beings get together congregate make a plan and execute it. That's american life we did was. We went across the midwest and across the plains. We congregated whether it was in a church or a civic organization. What making a new government you know it's part of our histories right. In the first amendment we will be allowed to freely associate. It's an american concept. I have a chapter in the book. That explains how the honolulu wasn't american concept. Generally speaking There in most of the other sports baseball basketball there is not the violence. Hockey of course has violence in it. But the Control violence the fact that comes within rules Does that is that something. That's been important. As far as the development of the game. The thing that taps into that aspect of all of us we have that side of without a doubt absolutely america was forged by the gun when it was You know conquering the indians Or it was civil war where it was fighting world war one and world war two or even the labor movement was a violent movement in this country. America was forged by violence. Am i point out to everybody that all these chapters begin with how football explains something. And it's interesting. When i saw that and i looked through some of these chapters. I kind of smiled when i read about but the one that fascinated me the most was football explains show business and it's the obvious but go ahead and tell everybody well show businesses a big part of football and the one thing now. That's a big part of show business's fantasy football fantasy. Football has really helped explain. Football's explosion in popularity the last four to five years. And you know when you think about it. It really helps explain america because we used to gamble on teams that were put together by somebody else. Some other coach some other general manager some of the team president now we invest financially emotionally in a team that we assemble we put together. It democratized the sport. Everybody feels like they have a stake in every team but specifically their own team and they bet on they put money on it. So it's really and what's more american than democracy. It has democratized football. You touched on the bedding aspect of it. Is that just another one of the building blocks in the excitement. And the success of footba big part of it. Ron huge You know without gambling You know football would never be this kind of it's easiest sport to bet on and the hardest sport to fix the hardest part the fixed why you got eleven bodies on each side. You gotta have a lot of people on the take. It gets very expensive to fix. And that's why football to me always managed to stay away from that and they also came down hard on gambling among players. Early on burt. Build it in the forties with the new york giants. Pete rozelle did with the packers horning alex alex karras with the lions and. We haven't had an incident like that. And how many years. Now ron fifty four going on fifty years right exactly one other chapter. We've got about three minutes left but explain the chapter. About how football explains john coltrane. And jackie robinson african american culture has been pivotal in developing football over the years and You know. I used john coltrane as an example because jazz musicians love football. They really do. Why 'cause jazz takes an awful lot of practice repetitions over and over and over again until you get it right. And that's what football is. It's a choreography where you need. Repetitions over and over and over again to get it right. You ask any jazz musician. Their favorite sport is and they'll tell you football there's also a freelance aspect to jazz also to football as there. Yeah without a doubt. Yeah and that's the thing. I thought of immediately is that you've got the running back running around. He's changing directions spinning. And that's a little bit like how jazz comes to you without a doubt. You've got to have the improvisation comes out of the practice. The coo the specifically choreographed play at one point. It's all together and then it's all up to the individual and you know that's really. What explains america's well you have the camaraderie teamwork but you know e. pluribus unum right right. Well trump trump from many comes. What comes comes. One outcomes one poor of onum from many comes one. What would you like people to take away from this book that it's different. That's going to answer questions that have never been answered before about the history of the game and that you're going to learn something about how the game came to us why it stayed with us. Wyatt's become are now in our national bloodstream. In about forty five seconds. What did you come away with that. You learned that you did not know before you got into this Experience you know. I i learned so much about how in how important football has led to so many people in this country for so long. And how it you know. It's an expression of our national passion. And how when players get together on a football team it stays with them for their entire life because of the level of passion that it takes to do it.

With wind speeds remain inconsistent gusts as high as twenty two miles. Put our little around. Thirty one sunny skies install thursday. We'd like wind high near forty six. That's the latest weather. Checkouts more news and weather on our website at harvard. Newsfeed dot com it on the first time i think in and i post the first night we met up at least once or twice. But this isn't my first show hosting since i've since we've changed over the first time. Oh yeah okay. i'll mess it up tonight. So two eight three six one six zero canton it speaking of ian for those that. Are you know care. I talked to him earlier in the day. He was in arkansas. So by favorite was. I called him early in the morning when i got up. Don't you wake up at like six. Am nah sometimes. But no this morning was i. Think seven forty five still well before ian was probably no no. He was on the road. He drove straight through so apparently he landed somewhere around ten pm and they started driving his. The person who's driving with is in texas and he's like we're still in texas and texas is a big state will it is big. Yes it sure is you take. I think it's route ten across texas. It just never seems to stop. I don't know i used. I forty when across texas. So you just went across the top of the panhandle Weather was i mean it was the most texan whether i've ever seen the woman it's this clear. And then you see this wall of black clouds ahead of you and then it's clear. Isn't it experience because you know that's where the tornadoes happen. Yeah there's you're really bad night. Interstate forty really is where the with the tornadoes happened. She that bumper sticker while you're there anyway he's He'll be back at some point in the relatively near future. I don't know when i know. I'm slated to be on from now until sunday and fine with that. Ian rarely leaves the show to do anything. So you know by by all means godspeed. Good luck to you so. Today is the inauguration day. I suppose we should spend some amount of time discussing that. I guess i mean. I didn't pay any attention to it other than being aware that it was happening. Because you know what we do here. Is we look at the news and see what's going on so we can comment on it but all of the news today is just about the inauguration and various people's takes on it just like yeah you coronated a new king and that's pretty much it. I can tell you so. I had to pop in and out of my car several times. Today i actually turned the radio off of npr at some point because and there aren't a lot of choices for radio. A shows here in little share new hampshire. You get either the commercial stuff which is how we can Who on commercial radio or you get Npr and basically npr just could not stop lavishing praise on the new administration. So i'll rattle it off to you here real quick. Donald trump didn't go to the inauguration of joe biden. He gave out. That gave out some pardons early in the morning. Not none of them. Were any of the guys that we were looking for. They were not snowed in assange Albrecht and that was the most frustrating thing about it. Because that was what i did when i woke up today i was like shirley. 'cause i woke up afternoon so obviously if he was going to pardon people he would have already done so looked at the list. Carefully carefully watching oprah tonight on there now. The sodas state the statement is is that mitch. Mcconnell has something to do with preventing assange from being on. But i don't really have anything else. I don't know why you know maybe somebody will interview donald trump and ask him. Why didn't you pardon these three guys but as of today i don't have any answers for you and that's so now. We have to start appealing. Joe biden into it. What's really important to note is that Donald trump although he wished the new administration luck and success and declared that they probably would be successful that he he did not say joe biden's name like he you know he could have said. Joe biden his name. But he didn't say joe biden's name it's really important that didn't say joe biden's named he didn't say joe biden's name they had to say this over and over and over again it's like a bunch of seventeen year olds turn loose on npr today. Frankly it's been that way for the last six months. And i'm about ready to stop sending the money because i do believe that if you listen to commercial free radio or whatever that or very few commercials they got sponsors. Whatever but they're they're listener funded. They operate that way. I think you should pay for what you listen to about. Ready like i. I'm i stopped listening for about six months prior to the election. And i'm about ready to stop again because this is just sickening. Oh did you know the kamala harris is the first woman. The first indian the first oriental the first black to be in the The vice president office. I mean because it's really. He's all of those things. She's like every identity politics wet dream role into one like close. Actually trans is. She's we'll see forget that she has not yet. I mean she's incarcerated more black people than you know. God knows anybody around sure but that's beside the point like we've got it here today. Celebrate yippie today is a day to celebrate. She's she swore on strom thurmond. Strom thurmond has the other guys. Thurgood marshall's a really odd. Mix up of to name. Their thurgood. marshall's bible does he significance of that. Is it just their religious ceremony. I think you can pick the bible that you will swear on if you let me. This is kind of something. I'd like to ask you. What if you are you know in that position a a position where you were to swear in and i presume you expected to do that as sheriff sure they asked you. What were you going. What are you going to swear in. On i would use the tennis of the temple of satan and where were these. Did you write that stuff. I didn't write that one. Okay so this is. Anton lavas crap. Yes okay. I did read Way back in the day his little book say tannock bible which is like. We're really satanists. And i liked blue cheese dressing like this really hated seven tenants of satanism pretty good. They're very libertarian. At heart okay. I'll take your word for. Did you wanna go over those at some point. Pull them up now. Ohno will go over it later if you don't have them ready to go I will say that. I did know that. Kamala harris was the first woman. The first african american the first asian to ever be vice president because i found this opinion piece from this absolutely insane writer who is just bubbling with happiness about this wonderful change. That's undergoing right now at how america is going to heal and everything's going to be totally different forever and going to skip through the flowers. I have decided that. I am going to let those people be happy today. Because if you want to be happy about america coming together and you want to be happy about how things are going to be good in future. Like how could i not support you. I that too i do too but it's not going to happen as a result of changing the president. I think the best thing to do is to let them say what they say. And then in six months or a year a year and a half say. Hey member this. Where's all the things you said we're going to happen. How come they didn't happen. And that's mostly. I think when people talk about unity they mean. Finally everybody's going to believe the way i believe. Yeah that is most of it. And that is about the venus impossibly now. I'm all for joy if you're feeling your bliss today by all means the number six zero three two eight three six one six zero. Please call because i want to ask you know what part of this farce makes you feel bliss but for me. It just seemed like a. Let's say separate americans by talking about gender and ethnicity over and over again. Sure let's talk about how the last guy was really awful and the new guy is talking about how he's going to bring us together. Come on like really young enough to really believe this crap. Joe biden isn't gonna bring anybody together now he didn't joe biden has been in office for forty five years. If he was gonna bring anyone together he would have done it already. The president is a capable of bringing people together who is best capable in my opinion. Because he doesn't he shouldn't have any real powers. Shouldn't i agree six zero three two eight three six one six zero free talk live six. Oh three two eight three six one six zero as freedom. Some of you asked. And now we've delivered l. r. n. dot.

Cpi download it for free at freetalklive dot com free talk live numbers six zero three two eight three six one six zero call in and talk about whatever you wanna talk about. We're talking about the inauguration coronation of the new king. Yeah so mostly care. And i'm all frustrated that Npr wooden shut up about it. I mean it's kind of a must be a low newsday because that's all we talked about I don't care but part of me would rather have well. I mean if i had to choose between the two i would rather trump still be president really over biden okay but defend that statement trump. At least made me laugh. He is he is He's good for a few chuck and he was unpredictable. In the sorts of things he would do like he ban trans people from serving in the military. Which is something that. I absolutely supported him doing. Why don't you support that. Because i don't think anyone should be allowed to serve in the military. The more groups we eliminate from being able to serve in the military the better. I don't like any group in particular being singled out for anything especially if the thing is negative but this is a positive developments. I hey you can't go die for oil interests and for halliburton. We're not gonna let you do that anymore. I have a hard time being upset about that. Well okay how hard time being upset is a different statement that. I'm glad that he did it. I am glad that he did okay. It means fewer transpeople or fewer people in general are going to go overseas and die for corporate masters. I would take a different tact first off. You know as far as unit cohesion and all that other stuff goes. I think that that's up to the commander on the ground. They know how to drum out people that they don't want in their particular unit. There may be some place for them to go or whatever. I don't think you should give anyone an opportunity to stand up a soapbox these days and talk about their identity. Like just stop giving these people like stop kicking the soapbox over to them so they can just hop right up there and give it old yak. If you wanna look if you wanna wear a thong alesi thong pair of panties underneath your beatty. Us go right ahead. I don't care. I swear to you i don't care i don't care i don't wanna hear about it. I don't want. I don't want the long speeches i i just don't care but isn't one of somebody really wants to tell me about how much they enjoy wearing lacy panties underneath their bdu's. I swear they wanna talk ad nauseam about it. I suppose some do. Yeah i would. I would rather never discuss it. Yes but i hear that one of biden's picks for something is a transplant and rather grotesque looking woman at that. It's hard for a lot of people you know. They they transition later in life. You know and You know you see this person. Hey if you're an ugly man you're going to be an ugly woman. Seems so been the case here. It's not that hey she. She's particularly ugly as a woman. I know she's she's just ugly either way. There wasn't anything that was going to fix that. Okay so i haven't seen any pictures. I don't know who with whom about whom we're discussing. I or whatever but like the any conversation about identity is gonna make me uncomfortable and upset. And i think that the people that like talking about identity would say it's because i'm a white male and of course they would've been gendered an ethnic me right off the bat because i don't identify as white identify as clear but you're not clear saying i'm not clear. This is clear. I mean i can look at you until you're not clear. I isn't an gop stopped. You're audacity to say that. I am not clear. Be clear i've been clear my whole life. Okay here i am here. You can't see how many fingers behind my head. I can't but hey if you say i can. I'll i'll roll with for the for the sake of honoring what's wrong with this world. Is people keep on roll with whatever the hell people they fighting. Sure isn't it. Sure is the and actually identify as clear and insist that you are clear. I'm not gonna argue with you. Okay of all of the things that i do with my evening arguing about whether or not you're clear is not on the list of things i want to do. I know but my favorite was is how you begin to demonstrate that. I am not clear like you know if you spend any time having that conversation with anybody else about any other of whatever it is they try to choose your big it. You're crazy like this. Is the world i live in. You know the things that as i understand them in the world they just no one will acknowledge them and the people that do. I don't wanna be on their side because they're all full. I'm like oh god. I mean you're not wrong. There are a lot of people who would say that. You know if somebody doesn't acknowledge me as being female or whatever then. They're a bigot. And by that same token refusing to acknowledge that you're clear was civilly. Make me a bigot. But it just doesn't seem to work that way for them because they're the ones with these social pressure to declare. Who isn't isn't a bigot. But of course. That's not a mentality that i endorse anyway. No it's not if somebody wants to call you don't care you don't care you know like i can. I can call you jimmy on the air. You just chuckled. Does not hurt me at all. No it shouldn't it shouldn't right. I choose to call you by your pronouns because you make my life better and it amuses me and that's all i'm just in it for the lulls hiwickum so whatever we're all here for a very limited time might as well have a good time while we're at it. Speaking of news items you probably should know today is that One of the one of my favorite pastimes and pastimes of rub. Republicans generally is looking at pictures of unhappy like People on the day that hillary clinton lost and stuff like that. You're watching this stuff. It is fun it really would absolutely is. I did in two thousand sixteen when trump won. Because i mean the democrats were inconsolable really. They were some of them. Were going full blown meltdown. Right and and be and the democrats and the media have very difficult time Hiding this this inconsolably that they've had for four years and you could just see it today. Like the glee was it was. It was just emanating from the radio today. And i wonder how the idea that we're getting. Journalism am bias. Things from these people is absolutely ridiculous. I wonder how republicans are holding up like people. Are they having the same sort of meltdown. Because they didn't get to listen to rush today. I probably should have listened to too much. Npr howie. Carr wasn't crying or anything but i didn't listen for very long as just on the way and i'm told that the proud boys are now mocking donald trump. Okay but the article is behind a paywall from the washington post. So of course i can't read it. Yeah i hate that. There wasn't a woman. There was an old woman who had a video where she was Over the course of a minute Wailing and crying and upset that donald trump had been the You know kicked it off. And she begged begged him. I hope you have a plan. Yeah he has a plan. It includes the gulf. Yeah he's he if he's smart he just retire yeah. I don't see any way he could ever get back into politics. Never getting back on television to the degree that he was on the apprentice. Don't you think they'll be a show though. I mean if you wanted to show he can have a show until no man. I mean it's toxic politically. Lots of people. Want to listen to him bloviate about how he got ripped off for an hour and night but he's been you mean like a news show yes. I'm contrary something like that. The humor he might be able to get one of those two six zero three two eight three six one six zero free talk live so when we brought him home. We didn't realize bear. The rescue dogs was actually said. He had very flaky skin. He was dropping a lot of firm and levette wanted to do steroid injection special dog food. Nothing seemed to work. So i was at a dead v. i t. e. dot com. I've been hearing on the radio for years. Never actually talk my mind to try to until finally sunk in all. You're talking about hair skin and get well. It took probably six weeks but after we started using dinovite flaky. Skin doesn't scratch a ditch. And make sure to put weight on kind of fight is contrition. I wish that we would have started. The dinovite right away to would have been so much. Easier won't be tau happier. Dog will be every rescue dog in. America deserves dynamite for ninety days dot com on. Free talk live.

Live helping me states in all fifty states. It seems like we're watching our you know. Our governor is trying to do authoritarian. Things there are a few exceptions But in new hampshire at least we. We have libertarian. State reps who can object and do something about it and in this case what's happening is The the governor has nominated his authoritarian attorney general to be on the supreme court Anti free stater. State rep leah. Cushman has put out a call for people to submit testimony as to how the attorney general has hurt them and try to keep him from getting to the supreme court. This is a thursday. I guess an executive council meeting on thursday tomorrow. I hope she successful with this effort. The only one going to reopen h dot com. There are details there on on the testimony process. Or what you can do. Is this like a zoom meeting where everybody gets to talk if they raise their hand or something. I don't know it's probably a combination The i tried to go to an executive council meeting in november and that's a whole nother story but that was in person Was at a military base. Actually the military confronted me for trying to film and then call the police on me. Sounds like the military. It's funny the military would call police on you aren't you did this lead kind of Yeah why are we here. It's really kind of silly. If you're you're either able to you know. See what your government's doing or you're not. And i guess the military guys probably just aren't used to people with cameras running around their base and that makes sense they probably shouldn't have had the meeting on the military base to begin with. I can see. I can totally see. You don't want Some chinese spy going in there and Taking video of your Your missiles and airplanes and stuff like that but yeah maybe they shouldn't have had. I'm afraid i don't know any china repechage effort to be because sununu loves this attorney general. They've been working together closely. All of this crap yeah. I've actually interacted with the attorney general three times in person And he always like. I'll ask the question. He pretends like. I'm not there or he says call. My office. sounds like a politician. That sounds like a not new hampshire style. You know where does one even at the higher levels. You normally actually get better results than that when california. So he's going to act like a new hampshire. Yeah so where there if one wishes to somehow do something about this again reopening age dot com has details reopen in h. dot com. Thanks for the call ridley greg. You're welcome. I think is what he was trying to say. You're a whole. Maybe who knows accurate either way yes. Six zero three two eight three six one six zero. I've kind of gone through everything. I wanna go through as to. You know what happened today and what you need to know in the news And my comments on that. And i gotta say slow news day. They're all reporting on this particular activity. Isn't it great that we have military occupation of the capital and we're swearing in the first whatever people and so you know there something but we last night on the show. We discussed doing something. I think has the possibility of being fun and what that will try to have fun. Yeah was going through the declaration of independence. It's been a while since i've read it and Sort of going through the grievances section and seeing what the grievances were at the time that was worth running a bayonet through your government and by your government. I mean people in funny outfits with silly hats on that claim to rule you now. Which is today the guy who's really doing something. The you know the parliament and the king and all that stuff. Well you know. They're not they're not. They're on the frontlines reader. Run a bayonet through they send out people that they've paid that have been either so impoverished. They have to or they've been made some foolish mistakes. Whatever it is. They just been brainwashed into believing that it's good and honorable and virtuous to serve in their governments military while don't forget the hessian they're just doing it for the money you know but this is fair to note. Is that the majority of people who died in the war died from things that weren't bayonets being run through them. I didn't know that. Yeah there weren't so they would put up a wall of of Ball shot out of a smooth bore brown. Bess and that was kind of the system. Was shooting a musket ball Put trying to put this wall of metal and then they just stand there and hope it didn't hit him. I i do remember seeing that and how the red cards for light. They're not playing fairly because they're not just standing there letting us shoot at them. Yeah they did do that somewhat. They did play some of the by some of the rules but sometimes they didn't but whatever the case is a stupid way to fight a war. Well what you have to understand is that they're highly inaccurate. And your chances of dying were better of dysentery in camp than they were of getting. Hit by one of these balls or Any any death on the battlefield what causes dysentery okay. I don't know anything about it. All right don't drink. The water has the. Yeah so. I guess it's fair to have a career in the military at the time because you know even the wars relatively plentiful. The likelihood of dying in battle wasn't really particularly high. So you know that. Anyway i guess but they were still you know paid to kill people hired killers the mostly the people that they were paid to kill in the case of being in battle where people that were wanting to fight. I don't have the biggest problem with people who wanna fight killing people who wanna fight. It's the civilian deaths. That bother me so i have taken the stand on the air here that the deaths on nine eleven in the twin towers were greater tragedy than the deaths in the pentagon sure because the people in the pentagon or paid paychecks to stand between us and Bad things that happen so if they made themselves target and somebody shot at the target then okay. I agree entirely the civilian deaths the problem but ever since world war two. It's been pretty much a free for all anytime there's been a war and this guerilla warfare counter-terrorism terrorists insurgency stuff it it just civilians are the primary target. Now yeah yeah.

Talk about whatever's on your mind the number six. Oh three two eight three six one six zero mark with you and what are big plan is for this. Inauguration episode is to read the declaration of independence and go through the grievances and compare them to say grievances that we might have today. There actually was a declaration of independence. Here in new hampshire that was signed recently. I really yes. I don't remember the nhl exit exit. Something no. I'd have to look it up or i could probably find the information again but i don't remember exactly what group is responsible for it but yeah they basically handed a declaration of independence to the attorney general's office. I love that. And i think they attempted to do it. The governor as well as the. You're fired we read it here on the air two or three weeks ago. I understand but give me some general idea. You don't have to look it up. Just give me like. I have things called search engines than i just type in keywords. Would i do. Nhc declaration of independence. probably not. Because it's probably not well known enough to appear in google search results would it be at freaking dot com. Possibly you look it up. I'm going to go through the just the the preamble here i'm gonna call it. I don't know if it's called the preamble the declaration of independence c. h. dot com c. o. s. c. o. s. stands for. It'll pull up here in just a second but it's not what you would expect. Oh it's new hampshire committee of safety. Okay those are the people who were behind the declaration of independence interesting like it is on a scale of one to ten for declaration of independence's it was pretty good okay so they were actually succeeding kind of thing. Yes they actually delivered it to the attorney. General's office i. I think they were in concord at the time and they actually stood i think at the capitol building and read it. And there's video of this people can find it free kane dot com fascinating congress. July fourth seventeen seventy six the unanimous declaration of the thirteen united states of america that united by the way is small lower case you in united. So it's states are capitalized. America's capitalized united small is significant. Yes that's the way it was under the articles of confederation. Okay now the articles of confederation at this point should have not yet been written right. Maybe i think if i remember correctly and this is but this is the start of that meme anyway. When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's god entitle them a decent respect for the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation gets a fair statement. Right like if you're gonna if you're gonna tell like if you're going to divorce your wife it's fair to this fair to explain. Why yup if you're going to divorce your government. It's fair to explain. Why now i think that the What's amazing about this document is that they were successful and mind you. Only by sheer luck and audacity. Were they successful. It just wasn't a huge logistics advantage. The british were way over. There costs an ocean during the eighteenth century and they had none of the weapons that the british had the navy. A completely outclassed them. Well they didn't need a navy and the navy didn't help the british any could shell Certain locations if they wished sure just move further inland and soft likely without the french and the russians. This wouldn't have worked anyway like there's a whole thing that most americans don't even know is that russia's said hey anybody who interferes with this. We're going to fight you. Yeah it's I think that it's fair to say that there are a whole bunch of factors that if any one of them had not occurred that this wouldn't you know we'd be as free as canada which is freer than the united states on pretty much every chart of freedom out there so you know there. I've always found it interesting. How the settlers who first came here. Who didn't come here to set up. A british colony still ended up being british subjects. Even though they came here to get away from britain at what point did it become. Hey we're just living here trying to do. I want to know your colony set the british. I think that in many cases they came with companies that paid their way to get here. And if somebody i mean you know you. You're under their thumb. If you do remember that at the time of the declaration of independence through the basically eighteen fifteen americans eighty five percent of americans were in poverty so the idea of picking up and moving from one location to another if that location didn't include taking an ox or horse to drink cart. there. I mean that was it. You know you couldn't get there you you aren't going to get on a boat and just go. There wasn't really much of a demand to impress people on both to tap. People go on boats for just a trip across. You know maybe you could pull it off if you did three years on a boat but hey boats were pretty dangerous places but weren't must of the original settlers you know lured here by religious freedom and not any sort of hey. We're going to have a job for this company when we go. There mean there were no companies here when they got there were no companies people seeking religious freedom at what point the original ones were religious freedom. There's no doubt after that it became people who are like. I got nothing here. I might as well go there and give them seven years of indentured servitude and then get a piece of land. I'll have something right. At what point did the british say. No we have dominion over this immediately. Really pretty much from the get-go Yeah i mean perhaps in massachusetts bay colony was pretty much from the beginning. Anyway we hold these truths to be self evident that men are created equal sorry area and endowed by their creator capital city with certain unalienable rights capital. Are i love thomas. Jefferson's flair for just capitalizing crap. It's thomas paine would have written a better one. yeah well. He was heck of a pen. Smith that's for sure that among these are life liberty and the pursuit of happiness that to secure these rights governments are instituted among men deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. I mean which is good. And how's that going. They just existed before. We knew certain things that we know now. I think it's really funny. Could they possibly imagined for a second that there would be. There would not be basically what we have which is half of the half of the governed are not giving their consent. I mean when it comes to here on inauguration day didn't care they only about a third of the people in the united states in the colonies at the time wanted to revolt against the british. They didn't care the minority willing to pick up guns to do so and a third wanted to remain loyal to the british empire. They didn't care it wasn't it was never about getting the consent of the majority of the people or or all of all the people. We're the ones we're the ones with the authority. We're the ones are our family and friends and neighbors are looking to. We're going to make the decision and they're going to go along with it whether they like it or not. It was never about consent of the governed that was just the that was how they justified it to themselves as they took power. Yeah i mean. Do you remember the monty python. Skit like dennis dinnie says that's supreme. Executive order comes from the mandate of the people not some farcical aquatic. Whatever in some some moisten bent lobbing sabotage people. I can't remember the the thing off the top of my head. It doesn't sound like you remember any of this. I do not okay. well it it exists. And i'm i'm gonna money and the holy girl is the only my monty python i've ever been exposed to. That's it dennis from monty python super high then mark. well. I don't know when he to then and baked. I remember very little from that movie. Well i i remember. It was funny. I think this is the very best part. Because i just love dennis. He says the king comes up and says hold woman. Oh woman and this man. I'm terribly sorry you know and then just sort of goes on from there. Okay and i remember that part of the duck and the witch. Yeah i remember the night in just a flesh was scrapped. It is Monty python is is great stuff. Let me go on here with the See if i can get a couple more lines in the declaration of independence before we go on that whenever a form of government becomes destructive of these ends that is life. Liberty pursuit of happiness Just powers derived from the consent of the governed. It is the right of the people to alter or abolish it. Now how would you do that. And institute new government laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form as to as to them shall seem most likely to affect their safety and happiness. I mean government by default is destructive of the ends of securing securing liberty. That's what it does. It destroys liberty my contention is that the They they traded one too radical ruler five thousand miles away for five thousand. Tyrannical rulers one mile away. Free talk live.

The joe biden presidency it now. Underway following chaotic attempts to overturn that victory. A minnesota group is warning. Despite the transition there are state level efforts continuing to undermine voter access discredited claims polls indicate many republicans. Still don't acknowledge biden's win. After former president. Donald trump repeatedly claimed the election was stolen. Michelle witty of the nonpartisan league of women voters in minnesota says it's troubling that some gop lawmakers still are floating that rhetoric she adds. It's concerning that after many voters were able to cast their ballots by mail during a pandemic bills are getting introduced that she says would restrict access the voters in minnesota turned down a constitutional amendment to have voter. I d two twenty twelve. They turned down so on. What basis do we have to move forward to undo. a probably. Don't have what he is referring to. A bill introduced the session by senate republicans to make another attempt at voter. Id law for minnesota republicans calling for changes. Say they're responding to concerns from constituents they also were at odds over last year's temporary lifting of a witness signature requirement for absentee ballots. I'm mike moen. President joe biden. Wednesday signed three executive orders. As he said about overturn several key directives of donald trump in his first hours working the oval office that the new york post they report biden signed orders rejoining the paris climate accord promoting racial equity and health care and other areas and requiring anti covid nineteen masks. Be worn in federal buildings. The post notes biden said former. President trump left to mate very generous letter. Despite skipping the inauguration for wednesday morning flight to florida and as the new administration begins its work. Faith leaders say there's an opportunity for religious communities to tamper down on extremism and work towards peace and unity many supporters. At the capitol. Insurrection appeared to be fueled by religious fervor displaying signs with christian imagery some were participants in the jericho march a gathering of christians rallying for election integrity and some shouted slogans that appeared to equate former president. Donald trump with jesus jennifer copeland of the north carolina council of churches explains that extremist views of christianity have existed since the country's founding but she notes there have always been christians who have fought for democracy and social justice. They were always christians who stood up in the face of demagogues. And we're going to make a difference the same way we always have. We're going to be faithful to the call of scripture to love god and love neighbor. I'm not logan this is pianist. Doctors warn lang cancer screenings and preventative healthcare while sheltering in place during the pandemic could lead to serious health consequences later data from the us. Census bureau shows that more than three point. Seven million new yorkers said they have delayed medical care because of the pandemic according to dr steven angelo with the united healthcare medicare and retirement in new york delaying or foregoing care such as routine cancer. Screenings and annual physicals can increase the incidence of preventable and treatable illness. The national cancer institute predicted earlier this year. That delayed screenings could lead to ten thousand additional deaths from breast and colorectal cancer alone. The next decade. He says patients should feel confident. The doctor's offices are taking additional precautions to keep them safe and prevent the spread of infection during the pandemic andrea sears reporting and groups that advocate for the rights of people in prison are criticizing the mills administration for refusing to include incarcerated mainers in phase one b of the vaccine rollout at starts in february. That's when older mainers. And those with underlying health conditions such as diabetes and chronic lung or heart conditions. Get the vaccine. But if someone is in prison even if they're older than seventy or have underlying conditions they likely won't get the vaccine until the second phase governor. Janet mills his said. The logistics are feasible. Joseph jackson with the main prisoner advocacy coalition says. He's disappointed at the lack of care being shown to mainers prison. We have to remember that. The people who are incarcerated scale citizens in they fall into more categories than simply band call serrated corrections staff are included in phase one b along with other frontline essential workers such as teachers and school staff public transit employees and grocery store and food industry workers for public service.

That's the latest checkouts more news and weather on our website at hard on us. Feet dot com wanna rule ourselves. Their tolerance for crap was significantly lower than america's today. And that's kind of one of the points that i'd like to make here is that we have no idea what freedom will actually look like or tastes like these people did have some some idea. Because they're rolling. Power was generally overseas and relatively minor domestically and still they had enough with like a three percent tax on tea or something like that. They're significantly more to it than that. But yes i mean it's worth pointing out. Yeah and looking at twenty five percent taxes on marijuana and things like that but that's okay not too bad better than not having marijuana. I suppose right if we did this. If we declared our independence from the government and kick them out. That's what they did the other day in new hampshire they did. They kicked him out well. They told them they're fired. They didn't go home. It didn't seem to work. Yeah i think the only solution here is to just stop obeying. I look at it as i'm free anyway. I do pretty much. Whatever i want whenever i want and the government some of the things i do are not legal. According to the government most of them are but the things that you know the big things that people want to be illegal like murder rape theft. Aren't things i'm going to do anyway. So if it's convenient to me i will obey the government. I won't murder someone just because the government said not too sure. I'll obey that law. Because i was going to obey that law anyway right but at the i'm not going to go out of my way to me today and i was kind of confronted with the idea that With the fact that the government turns us all into or many businesses. Let's call businesses for for the sake of this conversation businesses into freelance deputies for itself. Yes so this is my biggest issue with this mask ordinance. Crap in this case it was it had it was covid nineteen rules. I was going to the dentist and i had not gotten into the office. There was being met outside the office by the Vigilant and and happy Dental person sheriff. Who asked me a list of questions. You know Do you how do you feel today. have you had a sore throat. Have you had a cough She said in the last twenty one days. Have you coughed. yes. Of course. I've coughed last twenty one days. I surely that's happened And have you coughed in the last twenty one day she wanted to know if i'd done a covid cough and i'm like no i haven't done a cover. Cough like yeah. Well that's really what's the questions this is all about. And then she came to the question. Have you traveled outside of the state in the last twenty one days and the answer to the question was yes i have. But answer you gave was no The answer i gave. What's yes so. I i didn't get to the office like they cancelled my appointment and that was off i went. Wow and i'm not immediately. They've they felt bad for canceling my appointment. But they didn't want you know whatever. Now mike my question is how do i like in the absence of the government rules. I don't know what they would ask me. Because i don't live in a world where the government didn't and rules to these people what they would ask me so that i would you know. Give whatever answer i would give. I don't like to lie but my my truth. Telling mechanism is informed by a quaker conundrum. That was brought up in the past. Which is what do you do when a slave catcher comes to your house and asks if you've got any slaves hidden on the property and you lie. That's what many quakers the conclusion they came to other people are like i can't lie. Others are like like knuckling their house. You've got to way the evils here one is lying to a slave catcher. The other is protecting a human being who is going to be set back to slavery if you don't lie now. Those is significantly more harmful in its consequence than the other. I've traveled around Two thirds of the way around the globe and back which giving me what has that one and the third way times around the globe In twenty twenty. I've taken to antibody tests a bevy of pcr tests and none of them have ever come out positive. Sure i have managed to travel the globe on airplanes and not come positive and the ladies like well but you in the last one by the way was on. The eighth of january and today is the twentieth of january so twelve days ago. What you've seen us hearing king. We've been socializing more than ever and yet not a single one of us has gotten sick. We hang out with you. Who's flying all around the globe. You haven't gotten sick. None of us have gotten sick. And the whole argument. I mean it's really starting to make it look like all of this is in people's heads. Well it's not all in people's heads. The chances are good. That were you know like the chances are good. That your t cell immune and that's just that and nobody talks about it. This is what the The doctor talk to me about. I've looked it up on the internet. We i read it on on article on it Months ago here on free talk live and you're not hearing about this on the news. Anyway go ahead. you know. Search for t cell immunity covid nineteen and read up on it. I'm not a doctor. And i shouldn't be telling you about it but i can tell you. The medical professionals have said that. I'm you know likely t cellular whatever that means. It means that i was immune to this disease before it ever existed. Okay so anyway she's put. You could have caught it in the last twelve days. I could have but at this point. We've gotten into the realm of sorry. You're not coming in. And i'm not going to sit there and argue. You know either. Either you want my business or you don't want my business and i'll just go on like i'm only going to be in town a few more days. I get my teeth cleaned elsewhere. I don't need to pay double in new hampshire chance. What it's like here by the way. Did you go to bitcoin. Accepting contests know. That may have been your mistake. This was a period. Dentist with a specially specialty. So anyway let's go to the phones here. we've got a packet sniffer. Calling from new hampshire mr sniffer. You're on free talk live. I prefer mrs with you. Well give sniffer my best all right. I was calling to say that I absolutely agree. 'cause i like hearing my opinion spread across their ways. I agree that Transgendered should not be in military because there's too many good old boys that just wanna you know they don't wanna be neither near the queer because it might be contagious than they might catch lauren. fm. I don't think that that's the reason i mean. Especially among people that age the people serving in the military are light. Twenty one twenty eighteen nineteen th the vast majority of people. I've met for under twenty five to not care about whether or not someone is transgender. Because they've been around it their entire lives. I don't know this is mostly the older people. The colonels generals having an issue with it okay. I don't know that would be my guess. What do i know about these things. I have a friend who's in the air force right. Now who joined the air force after having been a marine and he he was the one who filled me in on this you know most people in the military they legitimately don't care they just want to know. Are you going to have their back when the time comes. Yeah that's probably what they care about. Yeah yeah. I think that if you are sort of taking hormones to make you weaker that i'm not really interested in that like as a person who might be in the military and having you have my back like could you not make the unit less able to defend itself while you're part of the unit. Well how much how much military strength actually comes from physical strength in the first place you gotta be able to pick these things up. And when i was leaving for five years i'm still pick up and carry whatever military equipment they have. How's it going hormones for last five hundred. I dunno just seems like a doesn't seem like a waste of money not particularly i mean. What are they supposed to do because of the age at which started them not a whole lot nobody. They were sixteen or seventeen. Because i don't know mark i'm transcend. That's what trans people do. I think gonna reason as any i. What age should somebody be able to make a decision to do this.

It's mark with you and Let's go to the phones here in just one moment but first i want to tell you about bitcoin. Dot com with bitcoin and other crypto currencies. Being on a bull run over the course of the last two months hundred oriented overstatement. I spend one more than last two months. I mean we went from like a bull. Run in crypto is a bull run unlike any other bull run in any other commodity or stock or anything like that. Yeah i mean just going up as a bull run in stocks but crypto has a flying up. You know because otherwise people are not doing anything. It's too stable. It's too volatile. Bitcoin was acting like a stable coin. For a while. In two thousand and twenty. I'm just was not moving from that. Seven grant mark. Yeah or maybe it was six grand. I don't remember but then then the rest of twenty twenty happened and it's now sitting at like thirty six thousand. I think causing all of those people who wish they had bought it when it was ten thousand down to thirty four today. If you bought yesterday then today wasn't so great but otherwise still pretty good. Good time to buy. It's never a bad time to tobia because we're nowhere near the cap of what is going to be. That's a prediction Rem makes it. I have made the prediction that if bitcoin is worth a dollar it's worth a million these days. I'm not entirely sure what i think about. Btc i don't understand what it is in the marketplace or its value as currency but name recognition. That's it either way it is Like you can't argue with success ladies and gentlemen and btc. Bitcoin has had success. So i i'm not selling bitcoin dot com. You can Get bitcoin there. You can get a wallet. You can don't even give you bitcoin there just for installing bitcoin dot com wallet. Yeah get a tiny little bit. If you you're but then you can say. Hey i own. Some bitcoins drew true. And you wait that tiny little bit. We were something clearly. Maybe one day you'll be able to buy a hamburger with it. One day you'll be able to buy a lamborghini with it. It's possible let's go to the phones get. Cw in k. Talks land cw. You're on free talk. Live howdy fellas. I mean lady and so Yeah i don't know if you guys recall. Yesterday you're talking about kids have been forced to wear masks. You know i. I hate the issue. Making these kids scared for their lives for some crap ass buyers. You know what. I'm saying. So i i go to the gas stations. I go to the stores. I never wear masks. And every time i see these kids with their parents are fearing for their lives of this bake virus. I'm not gonna say it's fake okay. It's a virus. But you know. I i just make a point to look at them and just know that not. Every person is afraid. You don't need to be afraid. Why why are they you know. They're changing the next generation. You know they're. They're ruining the new the kids that are you know it's ridiculous. I gotta be traumatizing experience to be raised in this sort of environment that teaches you to be afraid of everyone you see because they might they might kill you. Can't we kind of look the differences between say millennials and gen x. and boomers and things like that You're in your millennial right. Yes okay. i'm sorry. I was talking to aria What are you cw. I'm thirty four right now. i think i think so. So did you guys. I mean what was it like were you. Did you play outside much. Because i can tell you. When i came home from school. I ran in dropped. My backpack at the door turned or yelled. Hey if if my grandmother was home my mother of course worked. I was kind of a latchkey key. So my grandmother wasn't there. I could open up the door. But y'all hey turnaround bang doors closed. I'm gone and i didn't return until the sun went down. The street lights went on kind of thing. And that was my. That was every single day. Because you know who wants a bunch of screaming kids in the house so i go. We didn't really have. There wasn't an opportunity to play video games. I did have a video game console. But i had it at my house. Not my grandmother's and we didn't. We didn't play video games. We played football and guns as we call it. You know caught lizards and did all kinds of things with florida see. We did both as well. I did both as a child so time outdoors but i also hung around inside playing video. Game isn't there. Some point win. Basically going outside became scary for parents. Never never for me. Well i mean how about a younger millennial thing okay. I don't know i'm still trying to figure it out. We know i'm more likely going to die from lung cancer. Because i've been smoking since i was twelve years old. I've been drinking beer since i was in my teenage years. Perhaps i shouldn't. This is an older melody saying the ability. Closer to impose younger millennials. The ones who are like twenty three twenty four. They're closer to the yup. Just barely anyone born before in two thousand so people who are at twenty one twenty two years old now okay. Still technically millennials. See even though they don't have anything in common with the ones who were born in eighty eight or whatever thirty four years ago was. Cw thank you for the call. So my son. Born in two thousand and eight. And i will say that for one. Getting him outside was just hard. He just didn't he wasn't a kid who wanted to go outside and there wasn't anybody to play with where we left so he just didn't get outside and doing didn't do a lot of those things and say when a pork fest or something like that when he wanted to run off with kids that first time i don't know how old he was nine ten remember. I'm taking the bike at six years old. And go in the next street over. But you know whatever. The age was eight nine ten. I don't know it was scary. For laura and i That i go around and then after that it turns out. Everything's fine so we kind of let him do what he wants but i. There's something switched in there that to sort of made it so socially unacceptable to let your kid play outside too much. Well people will call the cops on you. Oh yeah that is absolutely is happening. I don't know why before we go on. I wanna get back to this declaration of independence. You had said that you were going to tell me what age at which somebody can make a choice to become trans. You being trans yourself. I will say first of all. I don't know much about puberty. Blockers a but it's kind of drug. Yeah well it keeps someone going through puberty but time is going to pass high their way you know and when that time passes a decision has to be made whether it's made by nature or a doctor or an overbearing parent or whoever or the person themselves a decision. It's going to be made whether they're going to go through puberty naturally or artificially. There could be regrets on either side of those decisions. You have plenty of trans people who are like. Oh i wish. I could have transitioned at at a younger age and plenty who who say. Hey i wish. I hadn't transitioned so that possibility regret is always going to be there whether you develop naturally or artificially with hormones so for me. Whatever the age the person wants. I say go ahead. People who wish that they hadn't been transitioned into the gender. Guess stop because boop grows and things like that if you take it a. You can't really do anything about it. All right mean you're still permanently altering your body just by going through puberty question whether you're going to do it. Artificially or naturally and risk regret on either side. So just do what you want and live with the consequences that result. I have an opinion to freetalklive in a dramatic scene last night. A coalition of the nation's damaged women staged a drunken tear soak march on the capital just after two. Am gene carmichael has more. thank you brooke. The damaged women began their protest yesterday afternoon marching on the national mall in about four pm and then marching away furious saying they were done with congress once and for all but then they came back again late last night insisting that someone in washington listen to them for one the late night protests started with tearful apologies but quickly moved to anger as marchers demanded that congress passed a bill making it illegal to say you love someone and then up and leave as soon as there's one little problem. Stop ignoring me. When i talked to you off of your back. Tell me i'm unhappy. I bought the onion news network. Congressman recently revealed that legislation totaling twenty nine hundred pages and involving more than one. Trillion dollars was available to members of congress for less than forty eight hours to study and consider that's over sixty pages of legislation per hour. Do you think anyone read the entire bill. I'm jim babka with downsize. Dc dot org consider proposal buried in a thirty two hundred page three hundred eighty billion dollar bill which of empowered committee chairman or their agents to examine americans tax returns when this provision came to light. No one claiming know how it got into the bill. One congressman questioned said. I didn't write it. I didn't approve it. I wasn't even consulted. If your attorney represented you this way. He might be disbarred but this is how congress represents you every day. that's why downsize dc dot org has created the read the bills act you can force congress to read their bills before they pass them at downsize. Dc dot org. There are basically two types of advertising direct response and branding radios great for direct response with its low cost to listener ratio but audio.

Because there's other people around who take liberty justice seriously as i do. I moved to the shire. Because i saw videos of people challenging authority and thought that i could get support myself. It called to me like do this right now. I wanted to be around people like me. Who got it and once i got here i knew there was nowhere else i wanted to be. I've always wanted to change the world. So i moved to the shire to join people who were actually working towards doing the same thing.

At freetalklive dot com. Free talk live. call in. Talk about whatever's on your mind marked with you. Aria six zero three two eight three six one. Six zero in the end of the last segment. Aria was giving a non definitive answer as to win. People should be able to transition from female. What did you to do. You want a number. I was the number would be convenient. Because then i could pick at it but i would say. Twelve watt. okay well like. I said they're going to. You're going to the possibility of regret there. Either way that this person whether they're male and want to transition a female or male through they want to continue progressing into being a mel could regret either one of those decision. They could go man. I wish i transitioned back. When i was twelve or they could go. Wow i wish. I hadn't transition back when i was twelve. So there's risk on either side. I don't perceive either. Risk is being significantly greater than the other so if they want to make that choice let them make it. It's a conundrum of the human condition. And you pointed that out. I'm not i'm not. You can't just paul's time until they're mentally mature enough to make this decision and be confident that they won't have regrets. It's possible that puberty blockers may actually be capable of doing that. I don't know not have looked into them extensively but either way once they come off of those puberty blockers that they're nineteen twenty years old or whatever. They finally made a decision. Their body is not going to progress in the same way as it would have if they had been thirteen. So there's still the possibility regret. Wow i wish. I just transitioned. Instead of taking puberty blockers for six years yes So obviously the i would. I would like to have happened as for a kid to be You know mentally fifty and then to make the decision at the right time. I mean all of us have regrets about not made a decision at a given time. And i can see that there would be problems. There's lots of pro as a father of a twelve year old. I wouldn't let that guy wouldn't let him make any long term decisions for me because he's bad at it right like i'm trying to help him make good long-term decisions and he has no capacity for this none. I don't disagree but you know making a decision to go through pea normally is still making a decision. That's going to ask for the rest of his life. Sure that's my position. So if they make a decision to hey. I don't wanna do this naturally owners officially with these other hormones. then they're still making a decision that could impact them negatively for the rest of their life. Right it's the reason. I haven't let him get a tattoo on his face. Not that he's asked for it he he doesn't ask for these sorts of silly things. He wants to play video games too long. And you know the normal problems the twelve year old asher. I'd prefer to eat more candy than regular food and snacks and things like that. You know the normal stuff i don't. I don't have any difficult parenting situations. But i can imagine what they were like. If you know what. I posit weird questions to myself and then you know. Take my son who. Who am i know. Pretty well Been pop them into these scenarios. And i'm like that decision. My decision would be this. That is the same as i have for. Premarital sex the the ability to consent is fundamental to libertarian. Thought and when you can consent. And i don't care what the consensus on. It's to seeing a rated r. Movie or sex or driving a car. drinking alcohol smoking cigarettes. Whatever the consensus. The ability to consent certainly comes about. At some point in a person's you know maturation cher and we all pick different points to determine when they should be able to do this thing or that thing. And here's my point. Is that on this topic and all the others that win your but can pay your bills. You are mature and you are adult and then you can do those things when you can't you are the member of family unit and the family unit makes decisions in the manner that the family unit does hopefully and i understood. This isn't true for everybody. Hopefully a family unit takes him consideration the things that you want and the would make you happy and you know puts that into the decision making process. They may not. And it's the luck of the draw. I'm sorry i didn't create the universe. I didn't come up with this whole nuclear family concept i've got to do is live in this particular situation and i got a bunch of people in my house that don't pay bills sure. But that's not their fault necessarily like it's not the twelve year olds fault that the twelve year old can't get out there and get a job and pay the bills and pay their own way the world. Because that's do. There's there's rich. Twelve year olds sure. Ritz streamers and stuff like that. But they can't just go out and get a job. Those are one in millions types. Kids who are out there making a living playing with toys on youtube or whatever it is they do the average twelve year old. Can't just go out there and get a job and even could is not going to be a kind of job that will allow them to pay their bills. They can't go out there and get the training to become a a stock trader or something like that at the age of twelve. No one's going to give a twelve year old a one hundred and fifty thousand dollars to say hey invest this wisely for me. Hey look if my if my son showed me over the course of time that he could make better than market investments scenario. But i would get him that money so that he could invest it for people and make better return but whereas this twelve year old going to get that initial money to show that he can make consistently needed he can. He can pick stocks by times and sell times and show imaginary losses and gains. There's all kinds of programs to do that online Yes you're absolutely. That's absolutely true As you can see that the world is moving in the direction that twelve year olds can make a living. I will concede that the world is coming from a place where they can't okay. All right The what i would say is that he twelve year olds. Don't want to pay the bills. Mean you know like the the kind of difficulty. I have getting him to take the trash out which is probably very very normal. I'm not calling him an abnormally recalcitrant child or anything like that but you know he wants to play the video games he wants. He wants to do the things he wants to do. Because he's twelve and he's never had a job and the consequences of life have never confronted him. And this is the reason that i say that you as a person who does not pay your bills. I don't care if you're thirty or twelve if you're not paying your bills you're not an adult because you haven't had the consequences for the actions and the way than adult does well. That's one particular example of how a person may have faced consequences and responsibility and issues and things like that but support to remember that you know having to pay bills. Sure that's a. That's a function of maturity but maturity and experience aren't directly related to age. There are there are ple- a fifty year olds like my father. Who is one of the most irresponsible children. I've ever known in my entire life and you have people like me. Who at the age of twelve. Yeah i. I was extremely responsible. Because i was in a world where i absolutely had to be in certain people who have to be responsible mature more quickly Does your father pay his bills. No okay where's he live. He his grandmother okay. Then he's not an adult. I called him a child. Yeah so i feel. I liked my system because people are constantly trying to pigeonhole libertarians. Into this. how old do you think somebody has. Before they can consent that will consent to what But and i know what they're talking about they're talking about sending the sex and considering the number is relevant. Is this person mentally mature enough. Be bechir enough at the age of ten. I wouldn't do it now but in theory that could happen. I'm willing to concede this one particular point that if an issue was important. If let's say the jack wanted to transition from male to female you know what. I'm not going to do that. It's not fair to to bring his name into this particular conversation. Say any twelve fictitious child but keep in mind. There are signs. This doesn't just come on nowhere right. My family were finding girls clothes in my hidden in my room for for years before i could ever have hit the age of twelve to transition in the first place right and if i was dealing with that you know maybe i'd say no maybe i would change my mind after a period of time You know and seeing things are different. Whatever the situation is but if that if the fictitious child cared enough to move out the capable of making a decision you know and cared enough to move out then they obviously care about issue and then our family can manage to work. Its way through this problem. But again i stand by your adult or you're a child and You know it doesn't have to do with age. It has to do with your ability to care for yourself. that's what. The distinctive factor on adult is two six zero three two eight three six one six zero six zero three two eight three six one six zero s and freedom.

What we're doing here is reading the declaration of independence and we're gonna go through the grievances or at least at this point You know getting it on the show. We'll go through as many of the grievances as we can compare them to real life and You know modern day america and see how they compare because we know had inauguration of new king's day and i think that's You know has some value. let's go on. i'm just reading the preamble here Trying to get through it and let's see the it's the right of the people to alter embellish it and to institute a new government laying at its foundations on such principles and organizing organizing its powers in such form to them as may seem most likely to affect their safety and happiness prudence indeed will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes and this. The united states government oldest republic in the world her Oldest governing document. I think say san marino says They're the oldest republic and accordingly al- all henceforth shall shoe such half hsun hsun that mankind are more disposed to suffer while evils are suffer -able than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed yet that sadly true. Yes and. I think we're doing that right now. We are suffering evils that are suffering people rather than abolishing their form and because we've become accustomed to it but when a long train of abuses and usurpation 's pursuing invariably the same objective in visas in invoices a designed to reduce them under absolute despotism. It is their right. It is their duty. Do you have a duty. I the government. They say i do. How but that's pretty. Tyrannical them was the duty created to throw off such governments and to provide new guards for their future security. Now it doesn't say new states. That's what they did here. But it says guards for your security doesn't necessarily have to be a state and it suggests by the way the government is there to provide security and not all the things that we've come to believe the government should provide conveniences and those sorts of things and healthcare free education government stimulus checks. Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies referring to obviously the thirteen colonies and such now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present king of great britain is a history of repeated injuries and user patients all having indirect indirect object the establishment of an absolute tyranny. Over these states approve. This let facts be submitted to a candidate world so i because You know sort of limits of time and these sorts of things are i. Don't want to go through the historical Significance of these complaints. Okay but a more. Just see whether or not these things can apply to today. Okay so in this case he is not going to be the king But he is going to be the embodiment of the united states federal government. Or perhaps your state. I suppose that that's not how it a president was supposed to be in the first place. The constitution's clear. The the united states government supposed to provide a military do weights and measurements. Put up post roads and You know prosecute people for treason really nothing much else. And as a matter of fact the tenth amendment in ninth and tenth amendments are pretty clear that the things that aren't directly listed in this constitution our powers of the people in the states so that's not the federal government but the federal government's gone well beyond that and they absolutely have. Yeah and nobody even wants to talk about that. The media was fawning over. Joe biden and kamala harris. Today absolutely doesn't want to talk about that. He has refused his assent to laws. The most wholesome and necessary for the public. Good so have we propose to rule ourselves in certain ways that the united states federal government has prevented over time. I'm thinking marijuana laws. Let's come into mind here. You know there's At this point you know now. The colorado in washington had their little Referendums and suddenly you can smoke weed there without going to jail. The federal government has rolled over and laid there like Like a playful puppy. Go for that. I mean there are people in prison for marijuana in federal prison there are. He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance unless suspended in their operation tells is should be obtained and win so suspended. He is utterly neglected to attend a so if we have wanted things from our government has the government refused to do it. Oh absolutely there's a princeton study out there that says basically that that the united states government governments around the world more closely resembles an oligarchy than democracy. That you know whether it's dowd. It took princeton to do a study on this too. Well it's nice to be able to show that to people. i mean. People like people like ivy league schools and so having princeton study. That says it is nice but basically whether you at you the public like all the you collective wanna law or don't wanna law an overwhelming majority of people want something to be true or not one on something not to be true. It doesn't matter that doesn't it doesn't make the least bit of difference as to whether it will become a law or whether it won't become law. No we've seen that repeatedly we saw with the bearcat hearing keen. All of those people came out to speak at virtually. No one was in favor of doing it and yet the city came was like screw it. We're going to do it anyway. Realize as a really great example they couldn't pass this thing without sliding and into the back of a bill at midnight. But you know now here it is. It's on its way. I mean you know basically it's it's instituted oliver america whether we wanted it or not and pretty soon. They say you won't be able to fly without it. yeah. I think it's i think it was october of this year of pushback. Okay maybe because of on half of it. He has refused to pass other laws for the combination of large districts of people. Unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature a write in estimable to them and formidable to tyrants only. I don't think that we lack the representation that was being referred to in the declaration of independence. I would suggest that we would because the level of representatives is a nearly as high as it was back. Then i mean. They wouldn't be infuriated if they learned that you know the california had sixty something representatives rather than the four five six thousand that they should have based on the population and the represented. Numbers were back. Then yeah. I think that's fair. You're right So there is no. There's no representation because The representatives are attempting to represent a whole bunch of people far too many far too many people. So there's not a You know the the sort of community representation. I would certainly not want to pay them to do that. It was going to be like the one hundred dollars per representative here in new hampshire right and there was a time you know. In the early united states the people became impoverished by being in politics and then it sort of moved to rich people didn't do politics and left it to the The hoi poloi to do but anyway he In this case the federal government has called together legislative bodies at places unusual uncomfortable and distant from the depository of their public records for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. Now is that hasn't happened federally but it has certainly happened here in new hampshire. It's happened federally. has it. ladies and gentlemen how many federal laws affect you. How many have you gone to congress and testified on congress an unusual or uncomfortable. It's really far and as better in fact coming from florida. I've got to say. I never went to tallahassee. Never i never know ever discussed government with me. Nobody ever wanted anything from me but my vote. And that's it and you know as well as i do once. They got my vote they did. They don't care about because they represent so many people. Yeah unless you're a major donor. They don't care what you have to say and you have to be a major donor to get them to care. Yeah i bet you that's Some of the people that are on the list of trump's pardons just last night where some major donors he has dissolved representative houses repeatedly for opposing with manly firmness his invasions and the rights. The people isn't that just that just happened this week last week. In new hampshire with the declaration of independence from the council for safety or something. The committee of safety committee committee of safety safety handed a declaration of independence to the attorneys general to the attorney. General's office attorney. General himself obviously is too much of a coward to actually accepted. The document confronted these and it said goodbye. Yeah obviously nobody can leave. The governor governor's still there six zero three two eight three six one six zero six zero three two eight three six one six zero.

At the capitol insurrection appeared to be fueled by religious fervor displaying signs with christian imagery some were participants in the jericho march a gathering of christians rallying for election integrity and some shouted slogans that appeared to equate former president. Donald trump with jesus jennifer copeland of the north carolina council of churches explains that extremist views of christianity have existed since the country's founding but she notes there have always been christians who have fought for democracy and social justice.

If one makes a mistake one should do one's best to rectify it and resolve any that may have been caused the definition of integrity every tenant guiding principle designed to inspire nobility action and thought the spirit of compassion wisdom and should always prevail over the written or spoken word and we need to call this a set of beliefs satanism. Why because that's what it is. That's that's those are the tennis of satanism. It's just but they literally are. It's not your surrealism against the enemy. What is the enemy of the day. What what is the god of the day. Ignorance state violence. Okay the states. So if you're an adversary of the god of the day adversary is simply what satan means adversarial ism against gods and the god of the day is the state so words should have meanings in the way that they should immediately mean. Something in the way are spoken right. Like i should be able to communicate to somebody Quickly and easily. That i what i what is that i stand for whatever and the term satanism is in fact the opposite of that. It's an obvious gatien. It's one of the reasons. I don't use the term anarchist because energised to a person who has never heard the term now. Do i believe that. A top down her arkell state like the Involuntary governments that we've had for the course of nine thousand years is the way to run things. No but the term anarchist's which many libertarians have adopted. And i believe you're one of them. yeah I'm also taking on the moniker of satanist right so satanist and which in fact you don't believe in satan right. I believe in being an enemy of the day. Do you believe in a an adversarial cognate cognitive force that is opposite of god which is also a cognitive force. No now so you're just atheist with the likes to wear black clothes all right let satan smart fine. Yeah you know. I'll use whatever pronouns. You want me to do this. Whole i'm a satanist game but i just i just taught you where satanism means what it is. Yeah sorry okay. It's not good enough for me. you can't the definition of the word doesn't matter to you got you can't put a two dog and call it a ballerina okay. She's not the way that doesn't make an arena so ever satanist definition and a clear set of seventeen. That says i just read off to you. What you read off there were the great tents for living your life as a whatever right and humanist at the very least. They've never pretended to be anything. But wait for it. Atheists right So i mean. I can live with with humanists though. Okay it's species list. That's why like satanism better you know it. Respects other animals. humanism puts humans. I and i'm not a fan of that. I said why human we're on top. Are we in. Most circumstances if we decide to array ourselves against the great white sharks. We do win. The australian government got defeated by emus in a war against them. Yeah it's a fun raid. Humans are also destroying their own environment in the long run humans on atop. We're enjoying our little brief period being on top the anthrocene anthrocene. That's the period of time in which men rule. Yes sure we're enjoying that right now but Between destroying our environment just generally being stupid having nuclear weapons. Not immediately go okay. This is a bad idea that we should never ever ever ever explore again internet of things. You missouri ticking time bomb of self-destruction. It's not that i don't agree. That nuclear weapons are a bad idea that we shouldn't have them but the problem is is the same way that any weapon pays idea and you shouldn't have it nuclear repertoire on a different calvo they sure. Are you know it. It is true that it is pandora's box and even if we can't uninvite them nuclear weapons of the rpg of giant these giant state organizations. You know and we're such a shortsighted and ignorant and stupid species that we did invent the nuclear weapon. Well nothing The the nuclear nuclear weapon was going to get invented whether it was invented by the amount we wear psychotic murdering apes. That couldn't just talk things out. Well let's hope that we can start talking about the number six zero three two eight three six one six zero you like that. Going back to the declaration of independence here for our nation evening. Show these what we're trying to do is apply the grievances of the declaration of independence to modern day life and so in this case it says he over and over again referring to the king of england at the time but we're applying it to the united states federal government and or state and local governments depending. He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly for opposing with manly firmness his invasions and the rights of people never so basically representatives for like. Hey no you can't do this and he just dissolved their right. We'll south And this is the taxation without representation thing that They were all going on with. We're not getting sufficient representation. And i think that. It's a fair estimation Well we're still not what i'll say is regarding. This is that we have these groups as we call them towns cities counties. Whatever so if you decide that you want to rule you and the people in your neighborhood decide you wanna rule yourself your county. He's not gonna take it very well. Now they're not and your state isn't going to take it very well You're you're very unlikely to be able to sort of exception off. This used to happen more in the past than it does now. So i can see. There's towns incorporated in new hampshire seventeen prior to the revolutionary war and into the eighteen hundred sometimes nineteen hundreds but now the likelihood of you getting new town very very unlikely. Never given that any thoughts really yet. I guess you're correct. Yep he has refused for a long time. After such dissolutions. I presented the house of representatives representative houses to cause others to be elected whereby the legislative powers incapable of annihilation have returned the people at large for their exercise. The people the state remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without and from within sounds like Like basically appointing governors and. Then they're not showing up and these sorts of things that you know we are. We are at the mercies of anarchy the claim here. Okay and and the people who want to invade us probably the french and the indians. He has endeavoured to prevent the population. We're talking about what's going on here. Does the government leave us unprotected. It does all the time. I don't know that we're at risk of being invaded by anyone or attacked by government. Crime happens all the time in the state says to you. They have no obligation to protect could point so which they have said and the supreme court has upheld repeatedly the police have absolutely no obligation. Protect you or to stop a crime being committed against you have an obligation to pay for the security force known as cops but they have no obligation to protect you. Meeting of them will but they don't have an obligation. You can't hold them responsible. It's not like a security company. You pay don't believe me.

The dishes can call in six zero three two eight three six one six zero. We're going through the declaration of independence. Here that's our celebration of the Inauguration of hail to the chief the chief. But i think it's worth going through because at this point we've gone through and nearly every one of the Grievances that's in the declaration of independence. That's what is little grievance paper by thomas jefferson and we found examples are identical here in the united states today. Yeah we keep on coming up with them and my contention would be that. We just don't have what the that generation had whatever it was. I don't know what we has. Entire religion woven around the state apparatus and democracy and we are the government. They called it the The the church of democracy today on npr. They called it a religion they they. They called it ritual. They called all of this stuff but they did it in a positive manner. I couldn't believe it. It is absolutely a religion it has it functions very similarly and i'd be interested in. I'd say there's more similarities significantly more similarities between the state worship crap that we just saw today and religion than there are distinctions. I would agree entirely. Did you see the Picture of the people carrying out the electoral ballots in their little ark of the covenant. Mark wonderful sullen robes. And you could. You could just see how how they must have felt to be carrying the the great folks at the electors the ceremony this more religious than that is the the nominating of the pope. Thing that they do it was overtly disgustingly religious and most americans will look at that and they would feel that same sense of pride in wonder of those. Those are the crate electoral. Those people should be able to. Those people should be able to have the government that they want. That's what freedom means. Sure but i should be free to not have that government. The funny thing about Like somehow people can people love to hear that they can have the government. You should have the government you want. You like america used to have it. But here's my question. Why can't i buy say one hundred acres plant my flag call myself a king and or whatever i can have i can have a democratic. I don't care what kind of government. I have a completely different kind of government. We've never seen before whatever. It doesn't make a bit of difference. Why can't i do that in. A free am stressing that term country where they fought and died for your free dumbs. You can't you are not free to not pay these people the money that they demand from you. What is distinctive between that you know the the big gathering that we had there today and the nomination process for their leader at the thieves din. I don't see one. I don't either and You know thomas jefferson likely wouldn't have seen it either by the readings of these things anyway. I'd like to hear him He told you to call in. If you'd like it certainly takes a lot to pierce through that veil of state religions brainwash. I understand that and again that person whoever they are can have all the government they want. They can go have twice as much government. As far as i'm concerned the question is why. Can't i buy a piece of land. Understand the question and start my own country. Same reason that the christians wouldn't just sit by while paganism existed. Religious don't like other competing religious belief by the way the same reason. The paganism wouldn't sit by while christians to these things. This is what i'm trying to show is the cyclical nature of belief systems. I your absolutely the outsider. Secondly there's a chance that you're going to make it thirty you get there and then fourth time to do the same thing to everybody else started all over again. He referring to in this case the federal government because we're Federal state and local governments. Because we're changing that for the king has endeavored to prevent the population of these states for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands. So basically saying. Hey we want more people to come here and work and farm and have our stuff and you won't let them in why that's identical to what's going on today. Beyond that the federal government isn't even supposed to be regulating immigration is supposed to be the states regulating it and then i'll have the authority whatsoever to because the king the federal government has taken that away from them. Is it impossible to acquire land and starting new township as you pointed out because if it's not owned by private person is owned by the federal government every acre of land on this continent is owned by a government or a private individual right so naturalisation At the time of what it meant was the ability to become how the process into which one becomes they'd be able to vote and come here and all those sorts of things but The federal government is actually given the power of immigration. I the founding fathers did not imagine putting troops on the border to prevent people from coming in. You know if it wasn't a war or something like that. So i can. It's probably the least clear violation of the constitution. Though i would say that much. He has obstructed the administration of justice by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers. It'll be okay so we have at by the way. I haven't read through these ahead of time. It's been some time since. I've read the declaration of independence on coming off the top of my head with via current violations of this. We have a right to a speedy trial in this country. How quickly can you expect to trial. Well the right to a speedy trial but you have to request it. No you won't get it no even then. Your speedy trial is going to take a year right. That's not a speedy trial it is not not by anybody's definition of what speedy trial is speedy. Trials don't exist anymore and here's the reason we don't have enough judges or we have too many loss. Both of those statements are true. Yeah i don't think. I think that we have enough judges but i think that far fewer th the judges should be handling far fewer things. We have too many laws too many things that are legal. And frankly what's the point of having a court system for civil law anyway. This is something that can be handled through arbitration in the vast majority of cases. We don't need civil law. What do you mean by civil laws where you can't go to jail okay. He has made judges dependent on his will alone for the tenure of their offices and the amount and payment of their salaries. Do you feel like when you go see a judge that they're impartial. Between you and the judiciary you in the executive no of course not. It's absolutely ridiculous. They're in bed with the police sunday. Da one moment. I had an a speeding speeding ticket. Trial that i had. I took it to go to trial for this purpose. Obviously was so that i can show the collusion between the judiciary executive. and i. you know. I asked the question. You have to put them on the stand so the judge. I couldn't play on this team. So i put the cop stan. Would you have me believe today that somehow we are considered equals before this court and he said absolutely and i said when i came in here today they took my pocket knife from me. Is that gun. You're hip and he didn't know what to say. Because the judiciary has assented in so many ways to collude with the executive that we don't even recognize it anymore. That guy could pull that gun out of his holster shooting and video in that room. And you know they didn't do anything about it. Took a pocket knife from me. That wouldn't harm anybody.
