Reflections On Atlanta Braves Legend Henry "Hank" Aaron
"I could talk about the dignity in the class of hank. Aaron the man the you've been being for an hour easily but i'm a numbers guy and so let me tell you what i did. After hank aaron died i navigated over to his page on baseball reference. And i don't know. I just be held the majesty of this man's career and it literally gave me goosebumps. The more i looked the more. I realized he was beyond great. He was at some other level. He wound up with nearly thirty eight hundred hits. And that's a lot of freaking hits. It's a thousand more history chipper jones. It's two thousand more hits than mark. Maguire it's more hits than johnny bench and hank greenberg got combined and they're both in the hall of fame so i think about all those hints and i think about those seven hundred fifty five homeless because that's two hundred more homes than mickey mantle. Two hundred it's more homers than edgar martinez and duke snider hit combined. And they're both in the hall. But the more i dug i found other cool stuff to hank. Aaron had double digit home run seasons at age twenty and age. Forty here the only three players who did that. Willie mays ted williams hank aaron. That's a pretty good. Start on a mount rushmore. Would you say and all those home runs. He hit for all those years. This never struck out one hundred times. Then there's total basis crushes. Everyone who ever played in total bases six thousand eight hundred and fifty. Six total bases isn't just a record. It's seven hundred. Twenty two more than stan. Musial was the next closest player in history. If stan musial had hit another one hundred and eighty home runs. He still wouldn't catch i karen and total basis. That's a lot of total basis. That's incredible hitter hank. Aaron was for two decades. So is it possible to be one of the greatest players who ever lived and still the underrated. After looking over hank aaron's numbers. I think it is my name. Is david o'brien cover the braves for the athletic. And there's only two guys that i've ever felt this aura around them and that was mohammed ali and hank. Aaron and hank aaron. How's interviewed him. The first time at spring training. I remember approaching him and it was just You know i've done this for thirty years. And it was feeling. I've had unlike any other athlete that i've ever approached but then he immediately just he smiled and was so warm that that fear or intimidation just as melted away. And you could not believe that you were talking to this. Superstar is genuine icon living in atlanta for twenty years You can't overstate the importance of hank. Air to this city and this region the south. I grew up in the south and hank aaron being a black man being the greatest one of one of the two or three greatest players of all time and to do what he did in the south and then living in atlanta and seeing hank aaron you know mementos anchor and tributes and see his name on buildings and streets and that kind of thing. I would argue that. There is no athlete. That is more important to a city than hanker and wants to atlanta. He was such a huge part of how the culture of the south has changed. I mean this is a city where you feel fide of being so much black acceptance here. Thanks a huge huge part of that. He helped pave the way for all these other black athletes and entertainers wanna come here to be here. Brian jordan know it was an all star with atlanta. Bryant said that The reason that he chose atlanta was hank. Aaron and was a boy idle here. He said a black kid growing up playing baseball hank. Aaron was the guy but it was an opportunity for me to meet my hair. The hope the opportunity is given so many kids today. Amazing dominique wilkins. Said hank was a big reason. That he came here was one of the first people. It's probably one of the most instrumental guys into getting me here in atlanta. But one for god like hank. I wouldn't been here. Was hanker went to ted turner and said hey you need to get this kid by any means necessary. He said people should give the roses while they're alive and that he's glad to see him getting them now but he said hank should have been put on a pedestal decades ago and he was right What are the things that i remember him saying is that you gotta set example for people to come at you. And how do you do that. You do the right way you doing about being Have miltie you do it by just doing the right thing and the right thing a lot of times. It's hard and a lot of guys. Young guys don't know how to do the right thing. As far as how they present themselves to people and how they get back to people so to give back experts that i've learned over the years has become from erin trampling. We don't see that much of that anymore today. And he lived in the same house that he bought when he came here in. Nineteen sixty six from the

Local Teen’s ‘Big Year’ Breaks Chicago's Cook County Birding Record
"At all. But I have to say one of my favorite things of the fall, and it's It's happened for 10 years or so now. Are they both up there? Well, the so is is when the sand hill cranes fly over and I can hear them and they sound like this count to me. Sounds like turkeys, but they fly high in the air, and I was out for a walk it Ryerson Woods over this weekend. And heard them and was able to see them. I just think it's one of the coolest things. Carl Giammetti is on phone line. He is with the board member of the Chicago Order, Ornithology logical society. There's a story behind that I was too long to tell. And also on a phone line is issue. O'Brien, who set the record for most birds, identified for this year in Cook County for a year, I should say And issue is 17 years old issue. Welcome to W G. N Thank you so much for having me. You bet. Okay, so I didn't know you know what I'm talking about? What? Sandhill cranes. I'm sure right? Yes, I do. And this is the time that they're flying overweight. They fly way up above us. And but you can hear them. They're incredibly loud. Yeah, There are some incredible birds and they will migrate in really huge flocks. They make a lot of noise, too. So I think they definitely stand out to a lot of people whether or not your burger. But anyway yeah. Some of the most incredible migrating birds that passed through this area without a question. Okay, So you have identified well as of the copy I read in the Tribune 282 Birds. Is that where we're standing still? Um, I've actually gained a few more sense than, um I'm hoping that maybe I'll be lucky enough to hit the 2 90 marks, but we'll see one of the most recent ones you've seen. I'm sorry, but I think that I've added a couple. Um, some nice winter finches have been a highlight about it. Evening. Gross speak as well as the white Wing Cross. Still, another one has been spotted Toey and I'm blanking on other 10. The other one. How could I forget? Um, a cast in Sparrow, which is actually Um, one of the very few records of the species in the steak s. Oh, without question one of the most notable birds on my year list for sure. Sandhill cranes sound like for everyone. I'm glad you're okay. And it's just one of those sounds When I hear it. I just look up and I'm always raking leaves or walking somewhere in the fall, So that's pretty cool. Carl Geum Eddie is on the phone line as well from the Ornithological society in his Carl. So my producer Jeff Garlin. All day was mispronouncing and I said, Don't do it again because I want people to do it on the air, and then I screwed it up. But so issues having a quote unquote big year explain what a big year is for me. So essentially what a big year is that Ah Burger will choose a geographic area can be something that small is just your yard or could be something is largest the entire world. But county and state levels are usually probably the most popular ones to do because they're more manageable. And basically from January 1st at you know, at 12:41 A.m. 2 December 31st 11 59 pm You try to see his many different species of bird as you can. The nice thing about this story that I read in the Tribune, um, written by Morgan Green is the cooperation that's involved with other burgers to help someone in their big year. Can you tell me about that? Absolutely. Yeah, it's who did an incredible job, and especially with the added complication of covert closing a lot of like front sights. Hey, really discovered a lot of areas but really tol have a successful big year requires a lot of people sharing information about what birds they're seeing, and that's why I like to kind of say It's obviously issues achievement. He is deserve all the credit. But it also says something about the health of Ah local birding community that they're able to support new, big your records and things like that. So it's really a great thing to see. So is to explain that so you're a home watching TV or having dinner with your family, your phone chirps and all of a sudden, well chirps. How's that for upon you've got to get in the car and chased down the bird. Yeah, that is pretty much how it goes, I think Right now. We're very lucky to live in a time where we have technology at our fingertips. And I think with it a lot of birds as well because people are able to get the word out so quickly. So as soon as I get a call from a friend or a text message from our local Rare bird alert group chat. I will be in the car soon as I possibly can. And how? What's the further you? Did? I read your live in Evanston. Yeah. Okay, So if you're going to Southern Cook County or even Northwestern Cook County that's quite a hook. What's the farthest you've gone to wreck your to identify a bird? I think this year. I mean, I think I've gone is pretty much as far as the boundaries of cook County could take me. Um I'd say probably an hour and hour and 15 minutes is about as far as I've gone you've identified you said about 288 birds so far. You'd like to get to 300 Carl, how many different bird species are in Cook County? Well, you know, it varies based on you know, kind of weather patterns and the type of your it is some years we got more vagrants, Other others we don't but generally believed the cook list is somewhere close to 400. I think a few short of 400 here. So, Yeah, I

Inside the Vote: Atlanta's Election Process
"Have had a unique view of how things have been going in the state of Georgia, our miles. O'Brien continues to explore how the vote is being counted there. On the day after in Atlanta, Fulton County election workers were hard at work scanning and counting the last of the mail in ballots. They began the day with 45,000 left to go. They are among 200,000 untallied mail in ballots statewide. Secretary of State Brad Reference Burger is vowing to have the lion's share of it done by day's end. We're pushing really hard for that. If we can get that if we don't get it there, But we get the number so small that then there's no question of who, actually the winners. I think that would be helpful, really remove a lot of those questions that people might have George's election might garner the most improved award. Primary in June was a disaster. They rolled out a complex new voting system in the midst of the pandemic. It led to a meltdown and that was not the end of the trouble. In October, more than two dozen Fulton County election staffers contracted Cove it early voting was disrupted by Hurricane Zeta power outages and on election Eve. A moving company assigned to deliver voting machines backed out so early on Election day, Fulton County's election director Rick Baron came to work in the emergency operations Center, dreading a replay and at about 6 A.m.. He got word a pipe burst in the room where the mail in ballots are scanned. They were trying to assess whether any equipment was damaged, whether any ballots were damaged. They didn't find any damaged on any ballots, and I think they're going to be able to get the equipment running up and running. Now it led to a four hour delay. But once the in person voting began, their stars became uncrossed. Voters breeze through voting sites with barely a line in sight. Once we got past that whole opening about 30 to 40 minutes way, realized that all of our polls were open. I felt like the day was gonna go smooth way looked at June and we looked at everything that happened in June. The thing that I've said is that You can't be too timid to ask for help. As the focus turns to outstanding mail in votes here and elsewhere. Georgia has another bit of luck on its side. The state change the law to allow mail in ballot processing weeks in advance of November, 3rd. Unlike Wisconsin, Michigan get in Pennsylvania legally constrained toe wait until virtually the last minute. So now we are all on tenterhooks. Despite repeated warnings from election systems experts like Amber McReynolds of the National voted Home Institute. So in a census was a slow motion train wreck that you saw coming. Yeah, I mean, we we flagged this. We flagged this policy issue, And frankly, it's the fact that these three state legislative bodies refused to respond to the needs of election officials because it was election officials of all sides all party stripes that we're asking for this very technical change that would feed up the election results process. Election security experts say This is a particularly dangerous time. Potential adversaries can now home their attacks on the Tegra T of the voting system. University of Michigan Computer science professor Alex Halderman says this underscores the need for states to audit their results. We now have a target painted on the back of certain particular states that are going to be close and Miss Tripp in those states could take the form off, attacking the integrity off the paper ballots could take the form of attacking the computers that are going to be used to count them. What we need to do is wait for states to perform the necessary checks any post election audits and recounts and make sure that those checks are done accurately enough that we can all have confidence in the results. In the meantime, Professor Hartman will be watching closely to see if any hackers attempt to get in the middle of this process and cause mischief. So far, the federal agency which is assigned to track all of this, since there's no evidence of any threats, domestic or foreign to the process that have affected any votes. Meanwhile, behind me live pictures here at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta as Fulton County election workers get through A pile of about 38,000 ballots and counting. They say they will be counting here tonight until they finish statewide. They're promising. It will all be done by tomorrow. But in other places the weight could take longer. They may take more time that we have patients, Judy So, Brian in Atlanta, where you been now for several days, and this is the kind of reporting that is so important at a moment like this miles. Thank you very much

Will regret it. So let me at least. Open myself off and see if there's something else out there. So I started taking the Napkin classes. Really enjoyed it. You know if. If nothing else. It almost Cathartic. You know he was like A. You could you could explore your self and becomes someone else and really enjoy it. And and also then I found a little bit of time for so. And you can actually make money at it. Of course, it's not easy as that. But 'cause highly competitive game like everything. But I really enjoy acting, and that's really what voice acting is just acting behind the microphone in a little space and little cubbyhole. If you microphone the director in the rear and your donation, and that's one thing that I've always had a plethora of imagination. I can dream with the best of. I can make things up with them. What are some of the favorite things that you've done? Pardon, what are some of your favorite things that you've done? You know I love to do the characters. I mean I did I get a bond commercial a couple of years ago. That was on then Nickel Odeon I. I love that because you tend to get to be a little bit beefy, and it's also it's. It was full Kitty's I love to play the characters I've played different characters and commercials and different characters in video games, although the video games are, it's hard work. You know because there's a lot of screaming a lot of a lot of fighting and and things like that, but the characterization is like a story. There's an arc to the video games now. There's storyline that you can tell. It's really like really making a lot of these things, so you really your playing account from a to B. You know you're not just sort of. You're not just being funny voice hold. Good to talk to. You know there has to be there has to be something behind it. You know there's a character person living breathing person that's going to and I. Tell you to be honest with you. The race track is a fantastic place to draw from. There are so many characters that you need in horseracing, and we can just take a little bit of these different people, and you create your own character out of that you know. Can you give me an example of something? You've done a little voice work here on the show Give me an example of something you've done. That's fun. That's that you've really enjoyed. On key.

If you were going to pick something in racing and try to do some voice work or some type of fictional character involved in racing. You may have already done that but if you were going to pick something or a topic or a person in racing and do something like that, what would it be? What would it sound like? Question because I. You know it's funny. You should say that because. I've been writing this pilot. This set on on the backstretch shows of race of a racetrack and I kind of come. There's so many different. Characters. You love I mean you know you've got the Irish guy. You know like the sort of. Model after my dad, how you know quiescent to train there and. Teach me very quietly like you know you know I.

But nowadays with the large numbers that so many. A few outs they have, and maybe it's become sort of a process of elimination. Turn to these horses, and you find you find the beauty ones, the very good ones they rise atop. The marquee or the showcase horses. Around what I grew up. Admiring has been. It's not even continuing anymore. Many when I look back and like you mentioned earlier like frank quitely. Woody Steve Needle time horsemen now. They never had more than thirty thirty five horses. Other time you know and they're stable because they said quite frankly, there's no way one person can keep an eye on live in that you know you can't. No, you can't. No, if you have one hundred and fifty horses, there's no way on earth. You know analogies I mean if. It's impossible. You know because become. It's become even more of a managerial. Job Nowadays. It's almost like you're a hedge gone portfolio managers. Now you're managing your horses, those commodities and saying okay well this. This is going on. And it's taken away from me. It's taken away. That that's work I mean. I I understand that the business business. Be Business but it's taken way that that sport. That flavor of like you know that the twinkle that you could see in by you know that that I. Think you can, and I'd love to see that. Come back, but. You know that they will you know yeah, maybe it's just me being a little Nostalgic. Well with that said, that's a fair point. Would that said? Where do you hope this new journey takes you? you know I'd like to I'd like to win a few great ones myself you know I'd like to. I'd like to be lucky enough to train some good good horses. Some good people, and when when a couple of grade ones you know I mean I don't have any illusions of. Of Looking at two hundred and fifty horses in sitting records data like to have some nice horses to develop to develop the horses allow, the whole should speak for me. You know that that's ultimately when I would like to do and just to show that. Yes, I am I'm a good horseman I I know what I'm doing but I like anybody you need. Do you need the raw material to work with? Languages to say you can't make a silk purse out of the Saudis. A great way to look at it that by the way trainer Keith O'Brien. Here on trainer talk presented by Phasing Tipton Were your parents big on making sure that you completed your education before you really went down this road full steam ahead. Absolutely yup absolutely. You know that was. That was a very very important thing and I'm so glad I'm very grateful for them. I mean like I did I was lucky enough to graduate from Holy Cross I've got A. Bachelors Degree in political science putting to such good use. But it's. It was always. Is always something that they wanted to do I, my parents. When Gee Whiz my dad, he left school and was twelve. My mom left school when she was sixteen. So the whole collegiate experience they had no idea what what it was, but they wanted me and my sister Miana to go to college and Graduate College, and if you like the horse racing business, unsure, of course, of course, you can enter at always have something to fall back on. So I'm still have that fall back on, but I'm still waiting to back. What's it like to have John Velazquez as your brother in law. Pretty Cool Nice Guy. Very Nice Guy Johnny Johnny. Johnny, from the first day on that which would actually when I was riding over jumps and territory, and he could, he didn't speak much English at all a few words, but I stroke from the very moment I met him. He came over to me and introduce themselves. Because if you know on a dating your sister I, said Oh okay. Hey, how're you doing? How's it going is always very polite, always an absolute gentleman from the day one the management gentleman, and the still to this day. He's one of the nicest most genuine people that I could ever wish to me and then if you know if you have one. She when she gets married, I mean there's no better man than John I can I can. That's that's the truth. I'm not just saying that because he's Johnny Velazquez. Whether Damon, Johnny the boys, you know the investment broker, or whatever I would say the same thing, just a really really good on a human being. Yeah I've said that from day one about guys like John Velazquez and remote Dominguez and people like that that are equally as good off the race track as they are on the racetrack. If not better, they might be better people than they are jockeys. And of course we're talking about your sister. Leona, who married Johnny and They have a wonderful family, beautiful kids and it. It's great to see. That relationship. Come together and now your relationship to. Value Yeah may never have. Only gotten along very well now always although I will say to be honest. The I've a bit Chagrin lately because I, can't get Johnny for my horses. Well that was my next question. Are you going to try and get custody sources yeah. I've actually. I tried to get him for a couple on the unfortunately you know. Mr Fletcher. They have slightly better to go. Can pick otherwise. Hey come on, yeah, what you do for. The game I mean I grew up in the game so. He agent is trying. It's his job to get his jockey on the bed source in the race so. If. He feels that somebody else. So. There's no they would never be. It would never with us. It would never become personnel you know. Racing is job in the business, so that's what that relationship days you know. Yeah, it's it's. It's wonderful to see and by the way. Bad. When, several years ago, when my son, who was the endorse intelligent bullying at school. And you know Johnny Really. showed his colors to me then Kinda. Step folding up. You recall that he won. The Breeders Cup distaff that year, and he was wearing worn, orange band around his leg. To bring attention to bullying and I'm at. The moment I will never ever forget. You did that so much on lame. to He didn't tell anyone who's GonNa, do it. He just did it and they was, and that was. That sort of encapsulates the kind of person Amanda Djaama's. All of the jockeys ended up wearing them, didn't they? they did the following day. Yeah, they did you know that was on the Friday the staff. He did that I mean I had no idea I was watching the race and cheering for him and I feel. Like that's. To Philly Philly me pulled up and then you get it. HOW HOLY COW! That's something that some kind of person. Yeah no doubt about it, and that that chapter a few years ago for you and for your wife. Keith was just horrifying and to have a thirteen year old boy. Go through that type of of abuse and bullying, and eventually had to be hospitalized to treat depression and his eating disorder I can only imagine how difficult that must have been. Yeah. That was definitely a low point. Tough tough, tough time. Thankfully, you know he's doing. He's doing well now. Back in school and you. You've actually hoping to play football this year although I. I keep saying better so pumpkins Meyer now. What do you say to other parents who might be going through that same situation? I. You know what you talk. Be as open as possible you can. If your children, you know you gotTA. You have to be aware of every other every moment every sort of mood that they have and you gotta know who their friends are I mean today. It's very difficult to almost because of the social media aspect. You know. I mean I remember Liam. One of the the beginning signs of the talk. Something's wrong. If he gave his phone his cellphone, the year old boy said I want this any off. Your cell phone and you know. How much drama you know. I mean I. Wish when I look back now I think. They should have done should have dug deeper. You know, but. The very children and back when my day you know you could. Go around behind school and have little fisticuffs. And he settled it, and then you end up. Beating each other up might be buddy end, but nowadays it's a lot more insidious, and it's. It's it's. It's very dangerous. Knocking only take. Your children, you gotta be aware you're gonNA everything you can. Protect them at all costs. Yeah, we'll. Thankfully Little Liam is doing well..

I'm sure I probably have music in there because I, just I I loved her, which she wants seven of nine starts, she had two seconds so worse than second in those nine tries and earned over while nearly eight hundred thousand dollars just amazing. Actually what soon as something else? And here and actually on her to. She was an amazing filly unraced day when she would walk from the barn to the paddock.

What I mean for thirty days without four days. There wouldn't have been four cells also. That wouldn't have been probably a Yankee music. He really the one that. Put pop back on the map.

He was by compliance and he's got an unraced Mare Goldway Joan. And we had had one full from that married before, and he was actually a decent horse. He was a horse, cold, five star, Halle and No. Broadway was horse before that was Jones, dancer and He had won one race, and then he got hurt, so then they came to us, and we're GONNA okay. Very nervous lanky. But. He was very that he was fast, so don't okay. No choice might be all right though one. We've had him that started working on Dad. At that time, we had a few horses. We used to work to yielding behind all the time. You know. They get dirty in their face mid learned to come up the inside between horses trying to get them at much experience before they raised.

What would it be an incentive one that on the sides they used one David and do the Mossad there must have ran out of she she passes so when I pulled over it. Just it just like it and actually just hit that little tab. It flipped over it right right but what I didn't know he's now. It's hooked so when I pulled back yeah I mean a bumper is not designed to be pull forward push in right right so like just little clips hole the demand bullshit plastic clips so the whole thing just below dude. It was just hanging in the middle like this in the size. It was ugly in the fall it off because I strained up is like laughing like this center was like Mike this hanging in the hall of wreck because it looked like first of all the way those are designed.

He's like you can't have it back when we have bumpers and they sent us. They sent seven bumpers. Were wondering why they seven bumpers is I guess because the front end is so long and you know people are going to realize that they're gonna hit things real quick. The bumper must have already know from the you know the the manufacturer like you're going to need bumper when you sell these cars so he said I got seven bumpers. I said three back seconds. I figured I'm not going to store seven bumpers because those take shitload Roy. Yes huge boxes so anyway four weeks later. He calls me. Goes cars ready to be picked back up.

That's flooded right right. You're you're on the curb and then if you walked off and curb right that's like four feet deeper exactly because it's also can't tell yeah.

It was really cool inter they would pick me up at my house and we were start patrolling because I couldn't meet them with a car. Sometimes we would drive to like we're places like one time we had panther patrol so the US fish and wildlife monitors alligator alley and there's these these fences that pants the pants can't jump across the fence in run on the street. They have tunnels underneath the everglades. It runs from one side from north to south so they can cross under the under. The police are going over the bridge so they have the panthers zone where there's a certain mile per not per hour. I think it's forty miles an hour at night and the changes from sixty five to forty miles an hour the this the speed beat signs are electric. No they're actually when you look at them during the day in looks like that but at night the reflection only shows forty five so so they sit the speed traps there make sure to make sure that you're going the right speed but they have these vehicles. They have the panthers patrol cars. They're like souped up. US Fish and wildlife like race cars and so down we get to go out there and they took me for a spin for the whole day. Do we in one hundred and twenty miles an hour. They like rocket ships. You can catch any card in time right naked. They're paid for by the government souped up on a government so dope they you would pick me up and when I first started I would be like dressed nice like they're like Oh boy oh son you.

I saw forty four hair era had come no more than in your knees that the that's that's far as you want to go. No I'm telling you that those charm that cooking go all the way outright onto the beach and shoreline so when a wave crashes the fish the bait fish get get stirred up in the crash of the wake and so the way our beaches work if you look. We don't have waves at crash way out. They only crash on the shore. Okay you don't really have like wage breaking like on the East Coast or whatever you can serve almost roll right into this. I mean we see the citizen yet so when they come in and then right the fish actually will serve the Predator fish and sharks those waves and when the break it gets turbulent in eighteen thirty so the sharks will turn right in that shallow shallow water eat the fish as they as they kinda gets stirred up or human so you're so your ankles. We're going to be bait. See I'm good on that. I'm not people down you listen so I'm not going back out what they want to go jet skiing. They WANNA go jets. I'm sure you can outrun a ski by falling.

joan rivers had a show and she got i love i love that show she had more to me i is there anybody in i would go to work until the guys i i remember telling the guys okay i saw i saw these guys doing stand up at really funny and then what's already happening bus that those guys started asking me to talk to them about step step but believe in the more i got annoyed more daylight and i kind of didn't understand why they realize they wanna make a joke about like i this is really pissing me off and they thought it it's funny man the most serious guy a joe came up to me and he said in this monotone voice you really funny you should do stand up and i was like okay but boy standups and then i just i went in i discovered stand up and i thought okay like i think i could do this because let me try now talking by considered wheelchair and you know one of these days i'm gonna do stand up speak mistake is he looked up to me and everything i've ever done in my life i usually said i'm gonna do this and accomplish it people were like what advert and then i do it that's right so he was huge influence on my ass after that like what do we do it when we're gonna do what am i gonna do it then one day i just i got up and i said you know what hold and i called around and the factory was having a an amateur night ten so i said you get in the car so i put his wheelchair in the car on the way there i went oh my god what am i gonna talk about so i went into a bookstore in i but i bought a joke of those old jokes to just walk in tub jokes andy i kind of got a few more took a couple of things i had in my head change people like the format of the jokes around so that that that more coming from something that i would feel and i did three minutes again in three minutes i said well what i ran out of jokes and then i walked off stage at the owner of the club jamie beside a buddy i love these buddy dean you too buddy up and like you never knew before i go we're talking about is like the way you look like you've never been states before i go that's my first time that wasn't a joke that's how my dad and i remember he looked at and there is a long pause anybody don't deborah subduing company buddy these pieces you buddy you at that point on i just realized that that was that was the one place where my curious morbidity thoughts exits to end my mother couldn't tell me that it was inappropriate like you know 'cause i always wanna make fun of my family my friends that even make one other point their stupidity is but my mother was always like don't say that right now don't say that right now don't say it here don't say nothing so it's like a big bad place yeah i mean dude i have a seventy eight nephews and nieces wow seventy in nephews and nieces you would have allowed me to make fun of myself and people that i love with honesty and not having to take it personally so it all these things read to me even comedian i am because it was never mean it was just on you know when one of my brothers said but my dad i'm auto beat precedent and like he's going to be a rug director maybe she wasn't he must be real by the way ironically my brothers the happiest truckdriver deliver me did this is where i grew up you know where these nice while they know he never stopped just run dreaming but he did stop plus more reaching she did tell us that there were you know each of us had certain limitations i'll give you an example i have a brother one time got a forties a deep deep let's tennessee my at my father so that reporter car and went so happy when he was happy because he passing i know things yeah yeah and that same that same report card i got six say pluses and minuses end the shit you gave me four days later and i was so pissed because i was like why are you making me right i didn't get it in the book but later on i came to understand that he expected more from me i'm gonna use like you're not you're brother right so all of these things threaten me to be the kind of guy that i almost stage is brutally honest i just put it out there you know i think that that's why people laugh such as you step in one of the reasons i love performing club is because it's one of the few places in america where i can get a socio economic level of people that sleepers absolutely right here in west palm beach by the way almost a gym on opposite right yeah you get more people absolutely here's what i say you could get me stories and employee is able to make those people ask saint joe is just to me it tells me the material is rate when you know that when i can make that happen and that that's that's the kind of thing i like to put together here because it's so take that it doesn't matter who it is 'cause we've seen so many comedians that are funny twenty two there people yeah but not outside of that right in you know i still try to music comedy clubs you know in poppin it just you know to fifteen twenty minutes in front of a crowd she performed so that i can you know still breed that comedy connection that not mike this you know people's payments you perform they give you extra they give you more when you walk into a plug the database that you have to work hard so i still enjoy doing that just doesn't feel connected to the to the real cloudy current rewrite material down do you how do you work in bed or you know this because you've been around reporter much exactly so because i record my show gonna direct out but i have a really great memory so i actually once one something it's in my head and i do it on stage yeah it just rarely rarely goes way because it's so it's so much a part of my inner so the the the premise system so you know the the premises listen i've been bands in certain cities because of jokes so i need the blood sugars that the children yeah laredo banned me for a while a person's bad before a like i'm sure there's some other cities i don't even know but what i need to make sure that it might tell a joke that's gonna give me bad prince of where i better love that joke what would you let me jump it got you band random 'em the it was it wasn't a joke that was a joke and it was kind of comment well here's what happened the first time i went to laredo i fell asleep when they picked me up at the airport okay when i woke up we were in a community where there were a bunch of warehouse says would you would slows the streets wouldn't pay into the river so i woke up sunday same way you did tell me we were gonna go through mexico to get to where we needed the go and the guy so i was performing in san antonio doing this festival in of is looked like in amarillo texas festival is here and then i say there's it could you see people so small that i couldn't distinguish 'cause ever like fifteen thousand people in in this arena in i even said like think about it laredo is only border town where are side it's not as nice as the mexican side like mexican side it's called whoever loretta which means no laredo so even mexico was like no no no no a dc is that new lower rate and so i did that joke and they got hialeah fagan's silted affected that they they were like later on the mayor was like did you know there were brand new premier and then i'm like what the heck is like the birds well okay so what do i stand by what i said it was so funny because later on when i came back they talked to me about that and i said this is where i was ending in the heavyweight dj that i want and readers diction every tv personality which like oh yeah that's over here the corner but they were you know what i'm talking about dr why would you tell me for this that one that one so you know but but i don't i don't know i don't i don't take that back you know what i mean like that that that was my point of view at the time i wasn't i wasn't trump we're trying to be funny end flooding in an honest in descriptive wait about something that release what tangible and beautiful and yet you know when that happens then i get pitstop and that's what i did my heels sometimes at and you know i kind of go but if you don't like what he then it becomes a little mean potomac something like no don't don't be don't call me just go back and say okay wasn't personal you know they do its thing where you know what i reid parliament's year said it made a statement i won't won't like all all call anybody anybody
