40 Burst results for "Bruce"
Fresh update on "bruce" discussed on Tolbert, Krueger and Brooks
"Damn, there goes my question with another one. But Bruce boat she was known for having a really good touch with his pictures and an understanding using the bullpen, and that was thought that that came from his days. As a catcher. So while he wasn't a picture, he was a guy that worked with the pictures, so he understood the mentality that was always the thought. Dusting position player. Never a pitcher Gabe Kapler, a position player, never a pitcher, and maybe I'm cherry picking examples here, but I'm curious. Jeremy, do you think guys? Are better managers of bullpens when they either when they understand pictures because they've spent time with them as a catcher, or they were pitching their own right and everyday position. Players don't understand. Ah pictures mentality of special relievers mentality because they've never been one and maybe they don't understand the subtleties of it. I think so. I think in some ways also learning curve, right? You're trying to understand how I think Running a pen is a very It's an art. Because having to run a pen is one of those things where you you've gotta know Matchup and I understand now it's tougher because you have to face three guys, so it's a little bit different. But it's still gonna be the art in women in the back and running. Meant to me is the best chess match of the entire game. So I think that it is very from me Fishing and actually, it was the D H right now. It's kind of a crap shoot. You know on that stuff, too, But I think I think for me as a catcher, Yes, you should. You know, a little bit more about man. Like I think that it's really important guy pitches in these situations because this is where he thrives. This is where he does it. And catchers that know that when they're going to manage that to me, is what they should be looking for. Where does this pitcher thrive? I've seen unbelievable seventh inning, guys. Guys that slam the door in the seventh inning dominate taken man got unbelievable stuff overpowering guys put in the night blows it blows. It blows it because in the mentality for whatever reason. I think they're getting a little tighter. And you're like, Oh, man, And then you started misfire and everywhere where you could just be like, Hey, man, it's three out and the good leads Good closers. Think that way. Mariano Rivera. Didn't think to tow one game on the line, he said. I got to get three out without letting anybody score and that's what will be my goal in the seventh. That would be my goal by pitching the fifth. I want to get three out and not let anybody score so it doesn't really matter what any. I pitch in the The thought process is the same. But not everybody can mentally do that. And so you have to understand the mental makeup of your relievers and where they some guys might pitch pitch better in certain situations. And if you're throwing him all over the place You're not gonna know. And I think catchers get that, but I think if you're not a catcher You have to. You have to start talking to these relievers. You gotta start asking. Start talking. Pitching coaches don't be like I'm the editor, and I'm the man. I'll do what I want. Hey, you see this guy? You talked to this guy get a bullpen coach in there and say where he asks. Worthy at mentally in these roles. Give me your feedback because I've gotta have the right guy in the right situation. I'm not going to split a coin and put him out there. So I think that needs to happen and Maurren capital. I don't know enough about him, but I would say right now I have a hard time. Following Some of the moves when it comes the picture when I'm watching the game, I'm like, Wait. Why is he in the game right here or wait wasn't in the eight yesterday? Why? I don't know. Like I don't. I have a hard time following the games right now, and that might just be for him. He might be the same thing right? I got 60 games. I'm trying to figure out who does what? Well, so I'm just gonna put guys in different roles that could be happening. That's why I have to talk to us. But if that's not the case, I would say he needs to start asking a little bit. I think that's one thing and I've said this from the beginning of this kind of analytics movement is there just stats and you want to use his staff, but the one thing they don't take into account. Is the human element because the computer will spit out what this guy does, and they don't differentiate inning. They don't know There's a difference in the eighth inning in the fifth inning in the sixth, and they know they don't understand that so ah, you can do in the seventh. Doesn't mean you can do it the ninth. I mean, I always look at this. Jeremy and this is something that I've always thought on. I could be off usually numbers prove me wrong when I go back and and look at him. But when you put it closer in in a non a save situation, or you put a closer in in 1/9 inning of a game where he has ambition, four days, you just want to get him some work. Usually they're not very good. Usually they give up runs and it's because they don't have the same juices flowing and that's kind of a human element. I'm talking about where this is different for them mentally. Therefore they're not as effective and again I could be wrong, but I just It just seems like it's happened way too many times. We're closer comes in non save Ah situation and they're not nearly as effective as they usually are. I don't know. Very many closes that ever pitch will in a non state situation when they're used to doing it all year. You know you come in. You're right there is that. Hey, man, if I don't get in the three days, I've got to get some work in the on the fourth day. To me. That was always Ah. That was always the worst thing, And I told you a long time. The number one. It's going. It's going. It's going. It's the killer. When you go when they come down and they called it. I take it almost every time. A F L Yeah, impatient for days, But you want to know if you want any taken any give up sick. That was great. You know, Like I said, Don't tell the guys in the bullpen never volunteer for any Make them tell you So if they say so, It's I started doing the last. I think in 13 14 I did it all The time. Both want to know if you want any. Does he want me to have it any What does he want me to have any one?.

Fresh update on "bruce" discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"Forget. We're forty minutes away from learning who everyone will play we already know. Eight of the SEC? Games we'll learn the other two coming up here in just a moment schedule should come out next week. Let's check in with Jim, in Arkansas Hey Jim you're on the air. Hi Paul Hey good afternoon thanks for taking my call. Really enjoy your show. hey as as. I've been listening to the guests that you've had on and has some great guests on the show today. You know it seems like everybody's kind of going back and forth about being pessimistic gross domestic about how this thing's GonNa go and. I'm Kinda like they are, and it seems like that one thing's for sure. Once all the student body hits back on campus, YOU'RE GONNA have outbreaks on every campus, and certainly that's GonNa lead over into outbreak funny teams. So my question for you is. What WHO has the authority to make the decision? If there is an outbreak on the team who's GONNA be making the call on whether game has to be canceled or postponed or rescheduled does that come down to a coaching decision and specifically I guess it would seem like I don't know that there's a governing body that the MTA is going to be making that for every every conference or is it going to be on the Eastern Conference will make. This will. This will be a conference wide decision. So let's let's take the SEC Arkansas. For example, they have issues. And they can't. Meet the on on a given Saturday that will be made from in. Coaching. Presidents in conjunction with the SEC office. So the NCWA fortunately, we'll have nothing to do with this. RIGHT WE'LL HAVE THEY Have they given an outline on is it a number of players or positions Clare's? The NCW in the SEC. Has has guidelines in terms of what would constitute but I think it's going to be more of a I don't think it will be cut and dried I mean nothing like this will be. Of course, you have to take You, you have to make it you. There has to be some integrity. To the system and and I know a lot of people out there you would not believe that that schools in intercollegiate athletics might you know. Push the envelope a little bit but let me assure you. They will even even on something serious because this is not an exact science. And when this is all over, there will be some horror stories told about not I'm not suggesting anyone particular school. I'm just guessing unit universally universally that. That, the testing protocols have been. Incredibly flawed. No doubt I mean there's definitely been some toss positives and negatives and I just wondered how they'd be handling that because. That's the one thing you don't exceed bridge. That's the one thing you don't want. Let's like the governor of Ohio yesterday Mike Dewine he he did a rapid test in the morning. The reason why did that because he was going to greet the president at the airport? He tested positive. And he did the normal. The normal test later, which I'm not GonNa try to explain it a little more. It takes hours to to get the results it turned out to be negative. So Yeah. This happens every day at a week in this country and it's scary to think how inaccurate these things are. Well no doubt about that. Yeah, and it, and it certainly seems like I mean each team they're going to be certain weeks on the schedule or games on the schedule that they're gonNA look at and they're they definitely need to be at full capacity with a full healthy team going in and if they had one or two but starting player somewhere that are out. You know that game could be in jeopardy based on the opponent they're playing week to week. So yeah, I mean the. Way. German the good news and it's not really that great news. But there, there is a little bit of wiggle room there. There are two by weeks, but that may not really be a big factor. If if we have serious issues and and I've never I've seen a lot of things in my time I know you have I've never seen anything where there are fewer answers. Then this particular issue it's it's literally mind boggling to think about what we are. We are currently swimming in but. You look around the country. You look around the world. There isn't anything normal at the moment. No doubt no doubt. Well, thanks for taking my call, Paul. To hearing. From the SEC later today, I can not not looking. I can't wait for the announcement I can't wait for the aftermath. We will be here. We may have to extend the show a couple of hours tonight. Let's get back to the calls and Eddie is in Florida Eddie go right ahead. Paul. What's up man We're doing great. Nice of you to call. Hey road. Damn tired. Hey. Paul. Seem like like a lot of people own edge us. About these being who the next couple of callers that they're gonNA. Have Right. Yeah. I've never heard more more conversation about things of which no one knows anything about then this in my life. I was talking to a friend of mine today and he said this coaches just furious and mad and screaming and hollering and. I. Don't think anybody really knows. The SEC credit they have a, they have kept the schedule in quite a bubble. I I don't think that coaches saving..
Unemployment is bad, but we dont know just how bad
"We begin today unemployment and I'm GonNa hit you with a bunch of numbers tomorrow morning the Labor Department will release its employment report for July the June report showed that nearly eighteen million Americans were out of work this morning we learned that just shy of one point two, million people filed for first time unemployment last week they joined the roughly thirty million Americans who are already claiming unemployment benefits. So eighteen million, thirty, million, thirty, one. And two how many unemployed Americans are there right now other than you know a lot we asked marketplace's Mitchell. Hartman to crunch the numbers. Let's start with those unemployment claims economists like this number because it's up to date and reflect the actual number of claims states process last week says Joe Bruce, Willis RSM consulting all of the people who were receiving some form of unemployment benefits, and that's north of thirty one, million people on the other hand. The Labor Department's monthly jobs report for June pegged the number of unemployed Americans at just under eighteen million. But that's likely low ball right now says at least Gould at the Economic Policy Institute to be counted as unemployed, you have to be actively looking for work, but in Cova Times, there are many people that are not actually looking because they are taking the advice of the health experts in this country maybe they're caring for children right now who schools have been closed former. Commissioner Eric Griffin has her own formula for counting total unemployment right now, what I've been doing is adding up all of the people whose jobs have been disrupted the bulk of them probably pandemic of recession related including those waiting to be called back from furlough and part timers who want fulltime work she comes up with twenty five million. Back in February before the pandemic hit one, hundred and fifty, eight, million Americans had jobs. So about one in six of them don't now I'm Mitchell Hartman for

"Don't Care Mississippi you know necessarily that some top Tennessee team is gonNA play a team that they probably be a forty five point favorite over or whatever. I just think the aspect of Oh my God. We're actually GONNA. See Actual Games Well, we feel like we're one step closer to that I think is is very, very comforting honestly to a lot of people that just feels like, okay this is it's not back to normal, but it's at least as back or feels like it. We're we're a little closer to that hopefully. I'm sure that that is a challenge for everyone especially people like you who are going out there reporting on stories and not not the huffed story wouldn't stand alone with or without a season but. We've all done this considerably considerably long period of time but. Even now there there are some. There's so many dooms dayers. I'm not being critical we had. Pizza. Amazon yesterday and he said he's been name. He's been named by some of his coaching friends pandemic Pete because. Painting such a negative view, but it's it's it's a challenge to to paint a positive you isn't it? It can be I I think some of the challenge this and look I talked to some of the same people I think that peace talks to I mean, we don't share notes or anything but I think you're a little bit kind of. Depending on who you talk to last, and so there are some people, some coaches, some ad's who I think have a much less confident feeling that this can be pulled off. It doesn't you don't can be threatened and there's other coaches I talk to and other other trainers and medical people who feel like this is going to happen, and so you know you're trying you're trying to kind of balance that out he gives the truest picture. You know like there's a day maybe on a Thursday where I feel pretty confident and then there's two days later I get that pit in my stomach with that. I'm not GonNa have the sport I love the most, and honestly you know it affects it affects your livelihood because if there's no college football, you know it's like you don't want to go down that road mentally, but it's not just you know it's not just the sport we love but it's also It's our jobs and and so I think that's the part of it. Where you you're trying to present the realist picture. You can what's what's challenging on this with exception of like Jean Smith right around the time. The big ten put out it's it's conference only schedule and Kevin Worn. Commissioner you had occurred too many people in positions of power, but their names upon some of the things they've said I mean I don't doubt a lot of. Stuff. PITAS heard because I've heard some things that feel like they're similar to that. That are very, very dire course of this but you know it's one thing to hear it and it's another thing for somebody to step up in front of a podium or put their name on it I. Mean I have a story coming out on the athletic later today from an FCS. Coach who went on the record to just talk about his disgust with the NCAA and how it is handled this whole situation. But I think just to get somebody to go on the record and put their name on it. It's very calculated for them to make that decision of am I get going to step out there because most people are not comfortable doing that at this point. You, you obviously have incredible sources around the country you live on the West Coast you know. The betting odds whatever that means would more. Point toward the PAC twelve having a difficult time this season because some of the restrictions maybe the big ten next because of some of the things that they Kevin Warren has said, do you think it is really every league out for themselves right now or do you think there is more coordination between the commissioners then the then the schedule releases. Have given evidence to. I don't I. I don't think there's been I think it's every league essentially out for itself in the same same business model is. It's a juggling act right now and one of the I talked to in another power five conference who would said. You know you you were hoping it would be more in concert, and if anything it's been much more spread apart in every conference for itself as this thing has unfolded whether it was the pack whether it was the the big ten making this decision and a bunch of other leagues game setup were were blindsided by that. and. I think it's been a scramble whether it's the ACC and the SCC all the way, the Rue and that's look were uncharted waters with the pandemic and I think one thing this is has really illuminated not that anyone didn't really know this but to the degree of just a total lack of leadership and direction from the NCAA and so this is this is how It's unfolded why everybody else is really in scramble mode to try to evaluate this deal with the politics of it deal with deal with how everything is unfolding, and you have a lot of people including a lot of head football coaches who typically you know are so control oriented to know every detail how the program runs and they're kind of in the dark on a lot of. Bruce. We we've seen a slow. Drip of prominent players opting out certainly, it's over now in the NFL, but the numbers were pretty pretty large especially on the Patriots. What are you hearing and talking to coaches and talking to parents and talking to players about what could happen from now until the start of the season? I'm here and there's another wave that's going to be substantial. That is GONNA come. You've already seen this with some big time guys in in certainly in the big ten. Michael Parsons is a first round top ten kind of pick Rondo Moore's great player, purdue shod Bateman, a really good player at Minnesota Greg Russo maybe the maybe the best pass rusher in the country he could be a top five pick in Miami and then you start I think what? You're also seeing Paul though it's not just the opt-out guys to go hammer to get ready for the draft There's also been a lot of opt out guy saying, Hey, I don't feel comfortable from hell standpoint of dealing with the challenges of of Covid Nineteen Look and we've seen some some. We've now heard some stories of players who've been pretty impacted by Xavier. Thomas Former. five-star defensive line recruit for clemson expected to redshirt because of some of the challenge that came from that you know a lot of people heard the story about the kid at Indiana Freshman Offensive Lineman it'd be rushed to the ER. So I think those stories I think are why or part while you're hearing, you know six players opted out today at Maryland and and I think you're going to hear more of that as we get further into this, and I just think that for for coaches and people who run programs I think it's going to be a real challenge because there's going to be a level of distractions and there's all sorts of things going on right now to keep it on, keep it on track as best they can. Fantastic conversation as always with Bruce. Feldman of the Athletic Bruce. Thank. You be well comebacks in. Always, a pleasure Paul, thanks for having me. You GotTa what would have great voice in College Football Bruce Feldman we're about forty five minutes away from learning a little bit more about the upcoming season we find out.

"Two additional opponents and we'll have that for you right here. Right now we're delighted to welcome back to our show Bruce Feldman Bruce from the athletic bruce thanks for being here I. Appreciate it very, very much and we'll get to the what the SEC is doing and what you may find interesting or speculating about that in a minute but I do WanNa talk about your piece recently about Charlie Charlie huff the Alabama Assistant I mean I. Think most people know who he is but I'm not sure outside of the inner circles of intercollegiate athletics. People were aware of how how well he is doing a great to have you on. Really Interested in hearing about your story on him. Yeah. I appreciate it So huff had has a pretty good reputation and in coaching circles he did a really good job at Penn state especially where. He coached he helped get saquon Barkley to penn state, and then really helped develop them and so for the story I you know I had seen that he was now ranked as the number one recruiter in the country according to two four, seven metric and that he had Gotten committed for the top fifty players in the country really during the pandemic and obviously a lot of people are GonNa go well, he's at Alabama. They always recruit well what's different a little bit with this though is that it's in the middle of pandemic and so you talk to people in recruiting world and they'd be like normally you get a kid and his family up to Tuscaloosa and Alabama's one of those places is one of the rare places that really does sell itself. But what do you do when you can't do those visits and that's where I think you start hearing about Charles Personality and the way he's able to connect with a variety different people engage them and so. I wanted to talk to a lot of the parents, some people who had been recruited by them not just the the Kerr Alabama guys I talked to a few of their, their their parents but also I talked to Saquon Barkley who had some great detail about not only why he sold him on more than just football to come to happy valley. But also really how he developed as a player and start hearing this from other other parents and people have had experience with them and I'll be honest with like you know Charles was the guy knew something about but to hear how he worked in why he's able to connect with players from natural people I thought was pretty fascinating. Well let's get a little bit deeper to that Bruce because I mean recruiting there. There are a lot of really great recruiters out there and it's hard to imagine saving putting a higher premium on anything other than this. But what what separates huff from everyone else. One of the things I heard from one of his former colleagues at Penn state was. He said he he personally he's really smart but he said he also has this great range. She was like, no this guy into any honky-tonk in Nashville and no every song lyric that you would hear over the course of the night and he can be like one of the other parents I spoke to said, you know Charles where you feel like he could be a big brother or an uncle and you have that instant family connection just because he seems very very relatable and it's very real where one the one of the things that they would tell me is like a lot times in recruiting you. Get somebody who's just really giving you a sunshine aspect to it and they said there's a lot of stuff he told us that was pretty direct and some of it always wasn't the most glowing necessarily but they felt like it was very real and I think that's why even some of the players who when halfway Penn State's ago to Mississippi State is like some of those guys parents said, you know what? My son actually is ricky slade senior if some was a five star recruit at Penn State, he said Charles Actually never coached my son at down because he ended up having to leave he said. He was like he still reached out to us as a family. We were never expecting. You know it wasn't like he wanted my son to transfer, but he had so developed a relationship and the feeling and the connection we had it's like he's still checks up on my son now and he's like my son has no. He's going to go to Alabama or transferring where he's now old dominion he's like but that is pretty rare and so I think those are that that dynamic and you kinda get a window into how it works and why In this regard, especially in the face of a pandemic where there's way less personal connection and time spent around people that I think it's something that he's been able to really Alabama have really benefited from. Chatting with Bruce Feldman of the athletic bruce were an hour away from at least feeling like the college football season is upon us when. We finally get the two additional SEC conference games. I know there is rampant speculation out there and and you know this league will. A lot of people will not be happy What do you think? Will. Make people the least happy when we finally see. This reveal a couple minutes. Yeah. I'm sure it'll be some level of inequity. Oh, this team is playing somebody an awful opponent or whatever. You Know Paul to me is the feeling of schedule being out there just makes the season's feel a lot more real I mean we're already we're almost in almost in mid. August. Right now I think because of the crazy nature of the pandemic and just so much. It's been like an avalanche of stuff to kind of Wade through We really feel like we haven't had a lot of time to talk about like all the run up stuff that you normally happen this time the year never mind like there was no sec media there are no media days but I feel like. Whenever these kinds of scheduling grids or anything like I..
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively Apologize for Plantation Wedding
"Ryan Reynolds is apologizing for the plantation wedding he had in two thousand and twelve, which is wife Blake lively they were married at boone whole a former slave plantation in. South Carolina I mean you can't get around that at the time. They didn't really think about that. They thought the south has this big sweeping with the wind love story nine that the figured out and times have changed. He said the decision to have an anti bellum wedding was a huge mistake and I deeply deeply sorry for that. He did they've got married again at the. Home years later he said it was a big F ing mistake Dante. Here's the thirty th it's Ryan didn't have to speak out saying I'm sorry because what it is is this is blind ignorance I grew up in the south everywhere you go sadly there are these plantation homes and even open as tourist destinations. So you go and you visit them you look at them and It's just a lot of people don't know the history and we're kind of in the middle of that going on in the world. We don't talk politics here, but there are a lot of months of, do we take down statues? How do we deal with the history and the sad part is a lot of people don't know the history to in order to deal with it. Right and then I think when you do find out the history when you educate yourself or it's pointed out to you, you do the right thing. This is a lesson in. One One and Ryan and Blake passed with flying colors when you do something that wasn't right if you don't think it was right if it no longer feels right you speak up, you say, sorry, you know we don't talk about politics on the show I. think that's part of the success of the show but I did get married Bruce and I got married I'm shamed to say at Trump hotel we got married at trump in. So He's name is no longer on the building, but the fact is we did get married there. Do you think Blake and and Ryan have taken down their pictures got to admit we we framed after our wedding gown wedding photograph of Bruce. And I in the ballroom on the on the on the top floor. It was a beautiful beautiful view and I also frames the invitation that clearly tells you which hotel we got married at that invitation has come down in my living room. Do you think they've changed their pictures? No because it did happen and and I think though that they will educate people moving forward and educate their kids when they talk about the wedding, it's a good talking point now to people look beautiful picture and they say, you know what? This was the history this is what happened there. Let's move forward with it.

I believe after this. No, not a Wednesday. I mean, I mean, Monday and Tuesday Wednesday, and I don't know that I'd call it a vacation.

Once you get to the venue, but the show has not started. Or maybe the opener is playing in the headline I want. I want the beer that you get right before and like, I think when we were kids and going to concerts It was a lot harder to predict this, but either through knowing people or just the fact that the Internet is the way it is, like, you know what time Bruce Springsteen but you know what time the lights are going out when he's on tour, right? It's 8 30 it's hard. It's professional. There's no Oh, somebody in the band is out trying to score some smack, so they're gonna wait and like the shows. That does not happen anymore.

Create Your Business Space Doing the Opposite - MicroFamous Matt Johnson - burst 13
"But. You talk about several things when it comes to shrinking a battlefield. First of all, it's creating niche. If we've talked about at at at length already and then creating that person combining, we've talked a little bit about we can exhibit combined existing niches that can make them more focused and define niche. You also talk about reframing a reposition, but the one element that I really loved that you do is opposition. When it comes to shrinking the battlefield. So. Talk to us about. Using opposition as a way to shrink our battle because I found this fascinating. Yeah and I love this example. I'm really pumped that you asked about that one because there's a bunch of a bunch of ways to create a niche or combining reframing all this stuff, and they're all there on the book, and that's awesome. But the one that's one of my favorites to talk about is doing the opposite, right. So how do you shrink the battlefield? If you'RE GONNA choose to focus on a certain group of people or a specialized segment of your market or something like that? Like how do you? How do you choose the right one? Well there's a great example from Jackie Chan Right Jackie. Chan. Is this martial arts you know really really famous and martial arts, but he is very different from everybody else like if you grew up a Bruce Lee fan like he did. Bruce Lee was the legend of the icon like he will never be surpassed. And how do you grow up as young martial artists? In China, how do you grow up Bruce Lee Shadow and expect to make anything of yourself in that community and in that that line of work? So Jackie Chan looked at that problem and instead of getting discouraged, he looked at it gwent. How can I do the opposite of what Bruce Lee does. Okay. Well, Bruce. Lee. Is Like A mazing. Super Fast, invincible. Well, what if I did the opposite and I was more vulnerable immuno even and showed myself getting her like did my own stunts and like showed showed the real thing happening Bruce Lee's films are pretty straightforward. Right What if we did something comedic? What if we did something that was almost slapstick? So he starts asking themselves these kind of questions. Just how can I do the opposite of the person who is the dominant name or the dominant brand in my space ends up coming up with his own blend in crates, his own genre. Basically of this kind of con- comedic martial arts. I don't even know what you'd necessarily call it But he invents his own fighting style that goes along with that expands into movies, ends up being like one of the highest paid actors of all time. One of the biggest stars in the world. And it all started by doing the opposite. And we can do the same thing right whether you are the florist whether you are a brick and mortar. Business owner whether your real estate agent whether you're coach consultant, which is the world that Iran and more taking what you know think about you know again, contrasting with Gary v like if you're in that space and you WANNA teach people how to market their business. Good luck. Just going on being another Gary v because you end up just being overshadowed by him and delivering the same message to the same people. got. Gary. V. So what are they? What are they need you for? But if you go out and you do the opposite, it gives you a chance to cut through with a message that actually speaks really really deeply to a smaller group of people and plus fun like figuring out how do the opposite you end up coming up with some really fun and interesting combinations. He may end up creating a niche that you dominate for the next thirty years. It's really

Marlins' Coronavirus Outbreak Has MLB on Edge
"The Major League Baseball has decided that they're going to pause the Miami Marlins season. Still, that doesn't mean they're going to forfeit games yet, but it means their season is paused. They have 17 people in the organization between players and staff to test positive for covert 19. Teams that are supposed to be in Miami playing have refused to go to Miami and play. The teams that were supposed to be. The New York Yankees were supposed to be in the same locker room that the Marlins were in the night before, have refused to go into that locker room. So it has been a disruption for a part of the season. But I think Maura than anything else, what it is, is a PR nightmare for Major League baseball. So they are going to pause there season for until next week. I guess, while the make sure that they have gotten everybody tested that's tested positive, and they've all been quarantined and isolated before they allow the Marlins to resume their schedule, But it's only a 60 game season if seven games of 10% of their season. Has to be replayed. Then what happens to the other teams? They're playing at the end of the year. They only have five days off. I believe it's five days off for the regular season. All teams do now you're gonna have to limit those and when you get to crunch time for the playoffs, even if the Marlins aren't ready for the playoffs, and it plays no role, what about the other teams are going to have to play double duty later in the season, and it's just a mess. Steve, You're the baseball player in the baseball fan. How big of a deal is this? Not as a new story, but inside baseball. What does this do to the season? Well, depends on who you're talking about. If you're the Marlins, it's really bad because also don't forget they may not play again until next Monday. Because the nationals basically said, we're not coming to play you this weekend. But think about this 2 14 players. 15 players have tested positive to staff members right 15 players that's half of your roster. There's only 30 players on teams right now. So even when they come back on Monday, if those guys are quarantined for two weeks like they probably will be at least then half of your team is going to be completely new people. I'm pretty sure Anthony Fauci is available for relief pitching. If they need someone I think available is one thing.
Arizona Congressman David Schweikert remembers John Lewis
"Of Congressman John Lewis lies in state of the U. S Capitol and Arizona Republican is sharing some fund memories of the late civil rights icon. Congressman David Schweikert served with Lewis on the House Ways and Means Committee and tells our Louis was revered in the halls of Congress. When he would speak in the committee. The committee would just sort of go silent because he had this very big voice, though most of the time Very quiet. He's one of those who actually has an amazing story and yet was kind to all of Lewis walked alongside Dr Martin Luther King Jr and the famed five day 54 mile March from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama in 1965.

MORNING MESSAGES The Invitation
"Engaging The invitation by Araya Mountain Dreamer It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for. And if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing. It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool. For love for your dream. For the adventure of being alive. It doesn't interest me. What planets are squaring your moon? I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow. If you have been opened. By Life's betrayals. Or have become shriveled. And closed from fear of further pain. I want to know if you can sit with pain. Mine or your own. Without moving. To hide it. Or Fade it. Or fix it. I want to know if you can be with joy. Mine or your own? If you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes. Without cautioning us. To Be careful. Be Realistic! To remember the limitations of being human. It doesn't interest me if the story you're telling me. True! I want to know if you can disappoint another. To be true. To Yourself. If, you can bear the accusation of betrayal. And not betray your own soul. I want to know if you can be faithless and therefore be trustworthy. I want to know if you can see beauty even when it is not pretty every day. And if you can source your own life from its presence. I want to know if you can live with failure yours and mine, and still stand on the edge of a lake and shout to the silver of the full moon. Yes. It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruce to the bone and do what needs to be done for the children. It. Doesn't interest me who you are how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the center of the fire with me. And Not Shrink, back. It doesn't interest me. Where or what or with whom you have studied. From I want to know what sustains you. From the inside! When all else falls away. I want to know if you can be alone with yourself. And if you truly like the company you keep. In the empty moments. This poem the invitation has been hugely transformative for me. Over the last I don't know. Fifteen years. There are so many phrases in that and I will put a link to it in the show notes I encourage you. To read it, read it out loud to yourself. Notice what polls off the page. What strikes your heart? What lifts you up. What opens you up? There is so much here to play with. It is really A. extraordinary. bit of. Bit of Brilliance. And for me the. Impetus to? Come into onto this Mike and to do these warning messages is really. About the last phrase. and. It's speaking to myself and to you. I want to know if you can be alone with yourself. And if you truly like the company you keep. In the empty moments. As we mature as we get older as we wake up as we grow up. We must turn inward tap into our own soul force. And get to know ourselves and at some point truly like the company that we keep in those empty moments.
2 Kings 19 and Psalm 46, 80, 135
"Today, we revisited part of the story. We I read on Day, two. Oh, six including! HAS ACI response to Kingston Aker ABS threats. We're reminded of how humbly he responded when troubles came as way, and since we've read this story before you probably recall that after this when he's been blessed, and has stockpiled fortunes, and he gets to live an extra fifteen years, his heart Arc's away from God, it becomes prideful doubts God's words and live somewhat airless Lii. One of the things we didn't touch on home. I read this story. A few days ago was the part where God puts a spirit and snacker. That will cause him to hear ally. There are a few noteworthy things about that burst. God is in charge of evil spirits there on a leash, and they have to do what he says and go where he commands that comforting second God himself didn't mislead snacker. Scripture tells us repeatedly that God cannot lie. Bruce Sixteen eight says he's incapable of it. It would be contrary to his character because according to John. Fourteen one of his name's is the truth. Is the truth, but God's certainly does use equal for his own purposes when Romans eight twenty eight says he works all things together for the good of those who love him. Evil is included in that list of all things, the good, the bad and the ugly the truth he speaks, and the rumors other speak. So. He allows snacker up to be misled. If you think that might be an unjust response, try to zoom out and remember how sin. Acura of has been Lee bought your way and his leaders tell the people of Judah that they shouldn't let y'all way. Trick them into trusting him. This is a merciful response based on what's inaccurate. Deserves from God. Isaiah also tells has a that they will win this war without even putting gas in their horses, and he's right before a Syria can fire an aero toward Jerusalem God's Army, an army of one shows up and wins, but it isn't really a balanced fight. The Assyrians are way outnumbered by the angel of the Lord who kills one hundred and eighty, five thousand of them and one night, plus he has the home field advantage since he owns the whole earth and whatnot, then eventually, king inaccurate is assassinated just as God promised. Next! We jumped back into the psalms. There were two verses in Psalm, Forty forty-six that stood out to me in light of what we just read. Burst this reference to Jerusalem in verse five stood out. It says God is within her. She shall not be moved. God will help her. When morning dawns, this is certainly what played out over the course of the night. When the angel of the Lord showed up and won the battle for them while they were sleeping when morning dawned, they laid eyes on God's victory. The second verse I loved is the most famous one in this chapter Burston be still and know that I am God. One of the things we've seen repeated as you've been in Isaiah lately. Is this idea of quietness and rest and trust? This stillness fits right in with that, doesn't it? In Psalm Eighty the corporate cry is for God to save them and restore them. In this song Israel knows its identity and echoes it back to the God. Who gave them that identity to begin with? I love this imagery in verses eight nine? It says you brought a vine out of Egypt that vine reference to Israel the people the ones he rescued from Egypt. Then it continues saying you drove out. The nation's and planted it. You cleared the ground for it. This is a reference to Israel the place God drove out the Canaanites and planted them there, and now they've been burned up cut down plucked up and they ask God to restore them and promised to praise him for it. Someone thirty five is where my God showed up today. I really love this psalm. I went through it and circled all the action verbs where God is the subject and here's everything. God does in this chapter. Chose Jacob in Israel. Does whatever He pleases, he makes the clouds rise. It makes lightening brings forth the wind. You struck down. The Egyptians is sent. Signs wonders you struck down many nations. He killed mighty kings, then gave their land to Israel he will vindicate his people. You will have compassion on his servants E, Doyle's in Jerusalem. God does a lot of things here, and as we look back on all of them. We see his hand to bless his people. To restore and redeem the very ones who have repeatedly gone astray from him. and. He doesn't do it begrudgingly. He does it willingly joyfully. You know we know that because I six says he does whatever He pleases. It pleases God to adopt centers into his family, and call them sons and daughters. It demonstrates his great art bore redemption. You will vindicate his people. He will have compassion on his servants. It leases him. Wow, ease where the joy
Bruce Rasa - AgVoice: Voice Tech for the Farm
"Fascinating space because it seems, everyone is interested in voice. Everyone's willing to try and trial. It but we. We really here's got sparked. So about five years ago many people might remember that. Google did a public competition. For. Smart Glasses and they primarily aimed at you. Know vast majority that at the consumer market. But when I saw the device first floor in about it as a possible successor, initially compliment, but possible successor to the smartphone itself. I was really intrigued. At could be A. Very useful very practical everyday hands on tool to help people collect a saying for example in any industrial use case. And I just knew that intuitively because of Mine Akron grown up on the farm, families still farms in total like my a father brother GonNA cousins farm about ten thousand acres in western Missouri. uncles Nance also have an portrait of a forty thousand apple trees. Really Groping really neat, fascinating, rich diverse environment for for agricultural. work in the short versions observe was her hands on intense job, so when hands free tool came along I was interested tried out, so the specific origin story was. Through my name in the ring. In a you know Google did a public competition said. What would you do if you had this device? And I said well, if I had glass I would help. Farmers Growers Connect with consumers and show how their food is grown in a safe and environmentally responsible way so effectively the type of communications platform. To allow the world of agriculture to connect with the world of consumers, which usually has a lot of. Differences are GonNa Misunderstandings and the simple version is I was I was fortunate I was selected. and went through the list of the eight thousand people selected, and only five even mentioned the word agriculture. Got, this, device that has intriguing possibility, it's tested and so I actually I got the device in Los, Angeles I fully can say Missouri, and I went and test it with farmers the next day, so the first place in the world, smart glasses retested in the in the food production sector, anyway at least to general purpose, you know mass device. On Google's device was in western cooler bar. That's so cool, yeah! I think that's super interesting and you mentioned something there. You know hands busy labor intensive like that's where I think that. This is where it really caught. My attention is this. Is this notion that you know you think about that type of job? If you're a grower, you're a farmer more times than not I would imagine that you are doing things that are really. Really preoccupying yourself, but I think that as I've learned a little bit about your product, it really allows for them to continue to do the job that they're doing, but also sort of take care of a lot of different like almost like clerical work right like this is what I did today. These were the amount of bushels of apples that I picked. The right s you know kind of going like one by one and you can do this all on the go and and I. Just think that's so interesting, because clearly as you know, I would imagine that would the type of feedback that you've gotten is like this is a really positive thing because it allows me to do my job just way more efficiently than I had been doing it can. Can you speak a little bit to that idea of like how this tool serves that type of professional? Assure so a couple of examples quicken in that you know toying with the device on my whole goal was to put that. SMART glasses in a lot of people's hands, which I I got to meet with about eight hundred people over the course of a year people were from. Slightly more than twenty different countries got very diverse input and Dave. Two things came out loud and clear was. Screaming need for hands free device. NC exactly what you said was people already with a hands on job, sometimes a full professional job, not just if you will caller, but all of them have an escalating need to capture information as they're doing their job and they don't WanNa stop work doesn't sound like a big deal. Many people saying office, but this this stops ten twenty or thirty percent of their day by today's recordkeeping, which is really not frankly they're usually. They're talented their passion. But the the second thing that came out in their search was the voice recognition absolutely sucked. So these people have specialized dedicated jobs there. People could veterinarians a plant scientists agronomist. Machinery inspectors repair support in a very specific jobs. Basically, they have a very specific vocabulary or dictionary or lexicon. If you will a things they need to do the reports and pretty simple. If you if anyone listening this is tried anything with a general purpose, surface optimize for consumers be Siri. It could be google. Times Alexa Cortana. Usually those things really. Are Not optimized all for specific industrial use case yen. Okay, the second thing is. I'd observe what has happened. Ed Buried very successfully in the healthcare sector. So the quick kind of analogy there is whistling somewhat. Similar idea, but again the healthcare sector just one company alone called nuance. Brilliant job kind of from a distance think last I understood they've about five hundred thousand. Users that are doctors, nurses, health practitioners doing this thing you're talking about to invoice capture against healthcare records, so the big benefit to them is a reduction in this this overwhelming painful. recordkeeping piece so critical mandatory yet 'cause it's a major. Of Major source of overwhelming and burn out for physicians and other people in health care. And the second thing is frankly they're taking their eyes off the patient.

Really off focusing on you know creating an immersive experience of being out there rowing exactly so we have trademark this idea of votaw reality and I love Peleton we have A. A time in the office they're they're totally great. It's really fun and it is. You said it's exactly right. It's like being at the club with your friends. You know you're not drinking or smoking, but you're you know you're listening to music or super photogenic people. You know it's fun experience and we love that that's great for us the coolest thing that we could think of doing to take this concept of live. Elo are and create an immersive experience so rather than going to the club every day for your workout, which is great, we can have great music and really really charismatic instructors, but you're actually out on the river, or on the bay, Miami beach or rowing by London, bridge, so, who do you think is it for? Is it like somebody that Audio Patent Than They WanNa? WanNa to mix up the workout as really somebody that is looking for different experience because they don't like going to a club, but they wanna have liberal quietness of actually being outdoors and row. It's for people who are looking for the very best experienced the best workout experience and the best way to connect with their friends, so Peleton has a leaderboard which is great. Great, but you're really competing. You're competing by yourself and you know not that many people have actually wrote out of the water in a boat with other people, but the experience of it is unbelievable. You're right on the water, but most importantly you're moving in complete rhythm with seven other people, Ya, howdy, howdy create that because if I'm Roy like, let's say like on. On, a big rowing team or like even dragon boating like a need to be in sync with everyone right because as soon somebody's out of things not working. That's exactly right. In human beings hardware. They love to do things in synchronicity with other people. It makes you feel better. It's like it's a genuine way of connecting and when you're biking, you know you're. You're like ninety five or one hundred beats per minute, and and really not moving in the same rhythm as as the instructor like you're having a shared experience, but it's not exactly the same rhythm when you're on the rowing machine, you're encouraged. It's actually really easy. You move every part of your body in exactly the same rhythm as the instructor, and so there's some brain. Brain science behind this you know the brain is an aerobic organ like a muscle, you not energy systems like like the rest of your body, and so every time you make a decision in your brain. You're using some energy, and so when you're exercising, you have to keep deciding to exercise and they're really really cool thing about rowing especially when you're rowing crew like. Like, not just on a machine by yourself in a room, but when you're rowing as part of a team, you turn off that decision making process in your brain, because the person that you're following the person in front of you is is making those decisions. You don't have to make them, so you achieve the state of flow much much faster and we know from. From our experience and I know from my experience as a national team coach that has it actually has a profound impact on people. It is the best exercise you can do. It's also US eighty six percent of your body's muscles when you're biking like forty forty five percent of your muscles with you have to use your arms and legs. It's like a full body. And your core and it improves your bone density also, so it really is like. If there was one pill that you could take, that would like. Make you friends and make you healthier. You take that pill. Of course. We feel like we've got that pill. We all would like that, but say so just saw. Listeners can really imagine how the product experience looks like so I'm imagining now you're sitting on a rowing machine and you have like a huge monitor of some sort right, and and you see an instructor like. How do you create that experience off? Somebody actually sitting in front of me. Somebody's sitting behind me and I'm not competing against. Against them, but we actually working together like how you create that certainly question, so this isn't like we didn't just go. Go to the river with some of our friends and get some go prost. We don't talk about our our workouts as we talk about them as episodes and we hired this really really amazing film team, and so we take all the experience that Hollywood and television. Television have created in the United States and we apply that skill in that art to capturing the whole experience of being out on the water, so we have four cameras. We have a team that is mixing and editing that you know. The most important part of this are two things number one is the rhythm, and so you never lose that rhythm and the instructor. Who's WHO's out. Out there with you is encouraging you to be in rhythm with everybody, and it's very very easy to follow like you do it instantly, even people who've never done it before within like two or three strokes there in the right rhythm, and then the other part is that emotional connection and two things contribute a lot to that one is music, so we have an amazing library of. Of Music and the other is making sure that when you're filming, you captured not just the rhythm, and the experience of being outside, and and the you know the environment of being out on the water, but also the eyes of the instructor is are the window to the soul, and it's it sounds trite, but it's. It's unbelievably true like you have to see. People's facing to be able. Able to read what's in there is and it, it's that experience being able to move your whole body in the same rhythm, AC- instructor and also connect with them. Because you feel what they're feeling, you know they're out on the water and they're excited about what they're doing. They're you know they're training for the US national team and they're sharing their passion for sport that they love. Love more than anything else, and it's really it is genuinely inspiring, and we thought just a crazy response from consumers, which is really encouraging, and
Election Security is (mostly) Solvable
"Bruce Schneier is an internationally renowned security technologists. He teaches cybersecurity at the Harvard Kennedy School. I Co host Malcolm Bradwell talked with Schneier about the threats that loom over the vote this fall when we talk about elections being hacked. What does that mean I'm assuming that there are fifty different things that fall into that category. So we'll talk about the hacking the voting process. It's a process by which you cast your vote. We also talk about hacking the broader electoral process so when the Hack Democratic National Committee and posted a dump a lot of information online. They weren't hacking the vote. They were hacking the overall election process, so you can talk about fake news and propaganda and Astroturf, and those things hacked the greater process that conversation around the election. And that's one very separate branch, the other branches hacking the vote itself or the process by which you and I go to vote and there you have four places where you can affect things sort of affect the outcome. The first registration process. And we've read about and seen different hacks on the voting rolls so that when you go to vote, you can't at that point. This particular kind of hacking. Is it really about taking people off the rolls? A couple of things in California some years ago, people had their party. Affiliation changed from Republican to Democrat. You can change the address of somebody, so they go to vote. And they were told to go to a different Pole, and some of these are easy. Many states have. Online systems to change your registration aren't well indicated. Others is to Pull people off the voting rolls. Others are to erase the voting rolls. What happens if we get to election day? In a certain state in the voting rolls don't work, and we don't know why, so a lot of things against the voting rolls. The second is the thing we talk about all the time. which is vote itself. Is Your vote recorded accurately? The third. Is the tabulation process matter how you vote? There's this sort of automated sort of manual process by which the numbers out of each machine get increasingly aggregated the numbers in the the building the numbers in the precinct, the numbers in the town of the city, the state all the way up to the national, if if that matters. And then the last which I think people don't think about a lot is the reporting process and we have seen, and this was something that we think was thwarted in in twenty eighteen. Erroneous reporting. where the number right, but the press release says the opposite. Of those four things that you've identified. Can we rank them in order of? Seriousness, which is the one that worries you the most I I would not rank them. I think ranking is is dangerous. I think they're all risky know. If I'm a chaos Asian. How did what's the level of difficulty involved in spreading chaos in the American electoral system? It'll depend on the technology. So we can talk about voting machines and some are more secure than others. I vote Minnesota. We use optical scan voting I have a piece of paper. I feel an ovals, and then that is tallied. Use A computer that is the gold standard right is a voter verifiable paper audit trail. Now is real hard to mess with that and you can mess with the tabulating, but there's a paper backup. You can do a recount. Some states vote on touchscreen machines. We've had times. Those machines have opened up and that it's been zero zero zero zero. What does that mean? No votes to no votes. Something went wrong today. Those machines are a lot worse than you want them to be. The company's very secret, but there have been audits at Def Con. Hacker conference couple years ago, we had a bunch of machines in voting village and they were all hacked. Company say they're all flying. They're often. Online is a lot of ways to to go after those machines

"Right let's get back to it. Tony Cologne Riazan. What are your thoughts on the Raven character especially his. Ac W do you think that his running wbz could have been handled better if they would have given him similar creative? I think if it had been new maybe I think that the Raven character when it was introduced in two e c from day. One was intriguing as hell. I thought it was great and there was a mystique about it by the time that they had done all their Chris. Fish crucifixion angles. And it had gotten as dark as had gotten. I think it'd counter run. Its course in just didn't think that and just really didn't think it fit and It was great it was a great character for EC. W and they did well with it but beyond that. I don't know that it really fit any other company and that was. I don't know that Scott was always As quick to want to modify that character to to make a change in he did that off of how well it worked in DC. W When I came in because it was unique it was different and I thought it was cool. Shit in the beginning Michael Scott Fairy rights. And I can't remember if you discuss this but I listened to recording the steroid trial transcripts on. I believe it's fences attorney. Laura Brady who uses the phrase rumor and Innuendo rumor and innuendo multiple? Times is your use of rumor and Innuendo a nod to Vince his attorneys. That is a fun question. I guess we've ever really dug into before as that That maybe where you first heard that phrase no. I don't ever remember hearing it. I know I've maybe I did subconsciously. But now ruined innuendos just yet hit with it so much that people read shit of false reporting all this other bullshit. I mean that's a phrase. You Know Reverend in Iran though yeah. It's just something that that you get hit with a lot when you look at something that somebody says some teams. That's a fucking rumor or they the innuendo oven. It's just crazy. Spanish time right said in his prom. How many roads get dusty rhodes dust if dusty rhodes could dust roads it does it could death row? Death would be nothing minute. Does the road that death the roles could ride down into the dusty road of the destiny of industrial dodge singer. At saying how how micromanage this TV Could you still go off script and get away with it? Or is it a case of future endeavors and I'm sure this comes from You and I have discussed before when there was a professional rivalry between triple h and the Rock and he gave the advice to the rock rock. It's live TV and it was just sort of understood with the Lincoln and now I'd go get over as dusty used to say something like that still exist or it's just different time and place now I think it does. I think that there is that opportunity in what I mean by that. Is You take the opportunity where you're out on live television and everything is live now so go out and get over go out and make whatever material and whatever opportunity you're given making your own to make it the very best it can be go get over four last ones here. Jefferson lex Luger. Ever use the torture rack during his time. That EVERY TO BE F-. Obviously there may have been issues using it against circa sooner. But as I big fuse Mr Perfect or certainly wouldn't have been a problem.

Luger here abandoning torch Iraq yet. Will it was something that you know again that you usually for your finish? You WanNa have something you can do on anybody and everybody and just trying to make it work. Torture Rack was something that you'd probably have little difficulty on some guys.

Wow I actually had this conversation the other day and let me answer it this way. Would I have done it? Know in hindsight being twenty twenty. Do I think it was the right call? Yes really for business for business purposes for the story for everything else. Yeah Man I agree with it but I don't necessarily had. I been the one to be making that call. I don't know that I would have made that. Call another one another phone. Here from Eldridge Water Bruce's Creative minds on the Mount Rushmore of wrestling so create often heard about in ring this past week on Earlier this week earn Anderson named sort of tag team Mount Rushmore at least from his perspective. What about creative minds Vincent Pat Scher top of the list. I think those are the two everybody automatically assumes they are Vincent Pat who were three and four. I think you know you have to go back to the fundamentals in many ways of the business and Eddie Graham was credited with so much this it you look at dusty. Look Bill Watts. You look at the guys that came out of there in Eddie. Graham they point to Eddie. Graham Roy Shires as being these creative geniuses that that had so much influence over booker's and over owners territories throughout the year so You think any would have to be on that so you got grandma on there. You Got Vincent. You've got PAT on there. Is the fourth spot going to Paul Heyman or somebody else? I think somebody else. I think that Paul is is one of the most creative people it gets hard. Because there's so many deserving Minds FROM FROM BILL WATTS FROM ROY. Shire from You Know Gary Hart. Fritz von Erich is dust in the in. The conversation does fuck. You had us in the conversation In into that. I think that from may creative point of view dusty I'll give dusty that nod because as flamboyant and as crazy as the thanks dusty did and people look back and Poo poo and shit on the dusty finish and some of the things dusty did in later years when you get to the vision in you get to the will make it move it. They got to write a book him in a funk in. Here's will go in. I think that dusty would would be up there so probably Eddie Dusty Vincent Pat and I think that as far as Like Vince is close to genius. You know he's The Walt Disney of our time And I think Pat. Patterson is one of the most intuitive and innovative people. I've ever ever met my entire life and in three of those guys. I got to work with so that comes from experiencing Eddie Graham on reputation alone and influence eldridge during Andre the giant documentary. When asked about Andre's death Vince was clearly emotional about it. What are the wrestler deaths affected Vince at a major way? I think anybody that he touched. She definitely has been affected. The the go back and people like Eddie Guerrero and just the anyone own heart. The the guys who were gone when they were with us. That was just highly emotional. Because it's part of your family and we travel so much together. We do everything together. That when you lose a brother or sister. It's it's devastating news. It's very emotional. Andrea events were the same age And they were very close. Andrea had that history with his father and continued on with Vince. And I don't think that they were. I don't think that they had completely reconciled when Andrei left so I think that hit vince even more so but they all hit hard. I you know it just it just really. It really depends and it sucks because it is a fraternity in it is family. Sometimes you may be fighting with brother. Sister doesn't hurt any last one. You lose them well put I. Don't think ever really put together. They were close in age benches only nine months older than entree which is crazy to think about somebody else who left. Us early last one from elder cheer with Gino Hernandez have ever been a star in the WWF guy. I feel like I've answered this gazillion times. I think that Gino would've been a huge star in the WWF. In had gino been alive and being in a good place mentally emotionally that Gino Hernandez was the million dollar man. And I dare say that we have the million dollar man Ted. Db Aussie to compare to and Debussy played that character to the hill. He lived the Gimmick he was the gimmick and will forever be the million dollar man. He took that role and he he made it his own and a lot of people probably argue. There's not another guy that could have done as well as Ted did to me. The one guy is Gino. Hernandez could've done it to perfection. Because that's how he lived his life in real life and it's it's what I drew upon for the dollar man vignettes in the characters we developed over the years. Gina was the million dollar man and Gina would have flourished in in that environment. Mike Whitaker has a fun question. Why did they stop dropping the hand three times when someone passes out is it not like just be involved and people like the way you have see when it became more popular now the audience was sorta conditioned understand that the referee would make a call? And maybe they would ask them and if they didn't respond they would But I think the popularity of the of see people just understood what tap out and things like that were whereas maybe once upon a time. That wasn't the case I agree and it's just evolution especially the the old spot where you raise the hand and drops dead. Sure you're as it a second time. It drops dead. You raise the type no more got one more no. So yeah you that. His been eliminated. I think. Thank God because it was a little hokey but it was a staple I love. What's on your man? I think it's awesome. You're from Alabama Sir Let's keep going here. Bill diesel wants to know Hashtag recruits Dong or Hashtag she posted. Which one's your favorite bruce? You know I didn't realize early on when we started this. She think about it man you think about when we started this thing in two thousand and sixteen in we did shows and you brought up pa the anatomy of late recruits and. We're asked me questions about his anatomy which I did not have answers little. Did I know then there was a fascination by you and by other main fancy? You're the one that asked me in fairness. Even even Sean Waldman great show had Intel on half but then you continued on what we did a lot. We did a whole show. Albania's we didn't talk stung one time. Yes we did. We didn't did then did not it did to anyway. I you know I mean that. That just but she put it. I can't remember laughing harder to where we couldn't even talk and when we try to talk we would just laugh harder and in that was some Goshi booted. It'll wait a minute. What will that. Hey home rolled back Libya. I she did do again through the noise. Look she put it. This is more like the best Chris. Rutherford Western out. Just re washed the Daniel my Daniel Bryan easy for me to say Wrestlemainia. Thirty pay off the monster. Video package was one of the very best I've ever seen. Bruce what is the biggest loudest Wrestlemainia? Payoff you've witnessed What are your top three if you have time so your biggest wrestlemainia pop. Your biggest wrestlemania moment celebration. What is that the think? Holy Shit Fourteen Austin could be. I mean that was one of those. Just everybody wanted it. They they knew it was going to happen. They were so happy when it did This is not a wrestlemainia thing but one of the craziest was after Toronto with Hulk when we went to Montreal in that sustain like fourteen minute pop while I was that was unbelievable. That was one of the craziest things I've ever witnessed live. That was just like home shit. That was pretty cool. Mr J B seventy nine since returning to the company. Have you had any funny awkward or heated situations last conversations over anything you or Conrad have discussed on the show? Know my destiny rights. What is the most ridiculous piece of mint misinformation? You've ever read the dirt sheet the title Wrestling Observer. That's probably allied to their basically. As long as you go into reading anything written by Dave Meltzer and you go into knowing that it is purely fiction and that it is one man's opinion that he got information from some other person and make shit up then not that can pretty good but I am being being in where a matt now and just let me give you when you look back on things you were. A part of that is just just incorrect and wrong. And for whatever reason they'll defend themselves to death they always will and they will always say. Oh we researched. It were journalists and everything. I happen to disagree with that. I just think that you have to take that with a grain of salt since you've been very small green salt not like course ground sea salt or anything like that is like the little fine. Morton Salt but run it after you run that through a grinder and basically down to powder and you get that one that'll teach EP. Typically tiny bit a grain of salt every now and again. So she's been back you would be. You would see something. And then you'd call me and just ineffective rage. These mother. Fuckers are liars. This is such bullshit. I can't believe anybody would pay money for this and I'm like wait a minute. What are you talking about your Goddamn dirt? Chic buddies and I'll say well hang on. What say the one true? Why can't tell you but and hearing you just so frustrated at you know that something is an accurate. But there's not an actor it tells you that part of its riders little inaccurate. It's somewhat wrong just making up blatant lies and making up blatant fantasy shit and that's fine to do that. Preface it with. This is what I think or this is what I believe might happen versus this. They're doing well the other thing. That's fun too as always say why. Are you reading it? The Stop Looking for it and I don't look forward to me. I know you get so frustrated and then thanks for listening to go. Bam People Send me this year and I needed to tell somebody who liked him that this is bullshit and I have to leave right now but what was bullshit. I can't tell you goodbye. Okay.

There's no we'll get to them all. We'll try to fit as many as we can. We're GONNA hit them rapid fire. Are you ready? Yama cabinet three three questions that's it. She upped all right well. Let's let's do all of our commercials. Here's Charlie thrower. He says not to break FEHB. How good is Bryant Ban absolute dream? He is a fabulous talent fabulous. Human being and one of those that you enjoy going to work with. He also has a few other questions here. We hear about her being the locker room later. Does that apply with female talent if not who is or was the locker room leader for the ladies? That's an interesting question. I don't think I've ever seen it but together that way. You know what neither native I would say. That locker room leaders were locker room leaders and take her. Was You know for back. Let's call it in the back And take her was leader for everyone. He didn't discriminate and that was for women men and everyone in between so there wasn't a separate you know we didn't have man's later women's leader. I think that Those stepped up they. They stepped up and they go In your opinion what gimmicks from the past could work today as a reboot dog decline on be fucking phenomenal Sometimes it's it's easier as you look back to to say what wouldn't work. I don't think brother love would today. I don't think that in this PC climate in which we live that that kind of edginess and he really wasn't that edgy. I mean I guess when you look back. It might be a little edgy. But they were different times. I'm not sure that that could work today. And I'm not sure that people would gravitate so much to a Papa Shangluo or even a definitely the I'm trying to get the fucking like the T. L. hoppers occupation Matrix gimmicks. Some of the some of those some of them would work frankly and some of them still. It's funny when people critique that but then you look out on the independence and you've got people that portray a lot of different You know I mean good God. Could you imagine you know dentist Gimmick in things like that Dr Isaac Gangnam that but it could work? I love for that. A ski from moving here Another fun question. Last one from Charlie this way. He writes Who has the bigger fear Yoko of Andrea snakes or Bruce of pickles? Oh God bruce a tick i. It's fear so hatred as I am not afraid that pickles gonNA attack me or anything. I just don't WanNA smell. Cnn or touching yeah. It's funny because a lot of the barbecue places in Alabama they will bring you like Put Sauce on on your order if you get a plate as they call it and then over in the corner sometimes they'll put like some Coleslaw. Maybe a half a scoop or something and then a couple of pickles is like garnish almost and even though you would say no pickles. Occasionally they would put pickles on yours. Straighten trash yeah. It's disgusting not matter of fact my son and I went out to eat the other day and got an Eye Talian sub. Now you read everything that's on the sub and it tells you everything that's on it. One thing doesn't say this honors pickles and there were no pickles on the sub self however being an Italian Deli man they brought out a fucking pickle spear on the side of the plate and I immediately like took my fork inflicted off on the canes play and now his reaction was fear tax rates yet when he hates pickles to he's not fond of them but then but then you'd have to get the Napkin and you have to soak up all the Jews so the pickle. It's gross man. Pickle juice grosses nothing good about pickles. I should be. They should be outlawed. Awful Jesse writes in. Do you think when Vince McMahon eventually passes away hopefully one hundred years from now that he would wanna turned into a storyline. Somehow wow that's that's a good one. Probably not no. I think that would in his mind. I bet you that he would probably just want to go away. And have everything. Go on without missing a beat Mayhem rights on the rare occasions. Maybe family vacation. Is there a time when Vince is thinking about business? What does he do for fun? Does he have a hobby? Does he collect anything? What NON-BUSINESS SUBJECT? Would Vince ever talk about loves to work out? Get a pump on his. Do Sir well Pope you've got. It's funny then because you guys have nothing in common with him just wrestling working out..

Bruce has just been the basis of all my music listings and listen to a lot of that Brian Koppelman podcast and almost every person comes on there. That's a music person talks about how Bruce Bruce inspired them so it's not just normal fans but it's the other people who are really really talented as well the look on his work so we've been blessed to live in his era. like a younger lady told me when we were seen the rolling stones in Chicago last month you guys have all the good music and when you think about it we really have been blessed Rolling Stones and Beatles Bruce and and who and a million other bands and people that are in their forties or go on we don't have any of those good names and it's been enjoyable and afford to tour and twenty twenty and seeing all of you out on the road have a great day hi my my name is Karen Akers Semi K Barton. I currently in in Australia but I'm orig- originally from England northwest. Nice cars to England plays Co Blackpool for me. My junior into discovering Bruce springsteen started with Patti Smith. I bought her album eastern. In of course Patty imbros collaborated on because the night back in the day when we listen to vinyl we could read the record sleeve unlearn about the artists read the lyrics etcetera so intrigued when I realized Bruce Springsteen career written because the night I started to explore Hubris springsteen was the first opportunity I had had to attend a live concert with may nineteen eighty-one Manchester Apollo the original river tall that leg of the toll was of course we rescheduled from March to May as Bruce got sick and needed some time off anticipation had been building building and building a sense of disappointment when it was rescheduled but then may finally came by the time the Shari had had arrived. I bought the back Catalogue of Bruce Final on was well and truly bruce springsteen being fanatic river tall had been in full swing across the USA your since nineteen eighty all the music papers. I was reading Dan anime sounds record mirror were full of reviews detailing the energy the power the fools the rock and roll that is Bruce springsteen and the e street band Manchester Paulo came alive that night fairly eight years ago we were. We really prepared for what we witnessed. I'm not too sure we were bruce. Commended the stage the ban the music on us the fans from the very minute. He stepped on the foot of his platform Bruce Letters. There's through stories of his childhood. He's adolescence. His relationships Gordon bad he led us through the difficult times and happy at times. We sang along along. We screamed shouted clapped Fist Punch. The air we cried laugh danced in Hong off every word every chord what's every riff and every one two three four it was without doubt the best thing I'd ever witnessed. It wasn't adjusted. Music was the honesty in which bruce and the e street band perform. It's the generosity of their time their engagement in connection action with those the songs the sentiments the stories Roberta's we've lived stars lives of difficult relationships of hard work disadvantage segregation love and loss. Yes we relate we connect we understand there were sparks out on the streets of of Manchester for that night that night the shore what else can I say but thank you bruce and the East street band and a happy seventieth birthday to the man who has that special magic trick that can fails all logic where one plus one equals three. Hey Bruce Edrich Haski here in Madison New Jersey congratulations on reaching seventy and also on the new album another record with a new sound love at all but especially that first song attacking you know me but you've been running along with me and my family for a long while been with us for a lot of fun trips but also some unexpected detours and over some rough highways highways.
