Starting right now I'm Mike. Greenberg were in Bristol Connecticut this morning. We would love to have started with any of those stories on this day, but there's only one place to begin in. That is with this horrendous news from the world of NASCAR to developing story this morning. A noose was found in bubba Wallace garage stall at the NASCAR race in Talladega. Yesterday less than two weeks after Wallace led efforts to push NASCAR to ban the confederate flag. Flag Nascar announced the news last night. Well after the race had been postponed due to inclement weather, and said it was launching an immediate investigation here was this statement late this afternoon? Nascar was made aware that a noose was found in the garage stall of the forty-three team. We are angry outraged and cannot state strongly enough. How seriously we take this heinous act! We launched an immediate investigation and we'll do everything we can to identify the persons responsible and eliminate them from the sport. As we have stated unequivocally, there was no place for racism. NASCAR and this act only strengthens our resolve to make the sport open and welcoming to all. Wallace released a statement last night on twitter, which read in part, today's despicable act of racism and hatred leaves me incredibly saddened, and serves as a painful reminder of how much further we have to go as a society and how persistent we must be in the fight against racism. As my mother told me today, they are just trying to scare you. This will not break me. I will not give, nor will I back down. I will continue to proudly stand for what I believe in. we go live now to Talladega Nascar reporter Marty, Smith standing by with the latest and Marty. This all came as I mentioned late last night. What more can you tell us about the incident and how? It's being handled today? My Good Morning The News in Bubbas garage stall was actually seen by a member of his team. Darrell Bubba never saw it. He never saw it personally and win. That team members it. He alerted NASCAR. And Nascar immediately had a meeting of its senior executive staff, including President Steve Phelps Executive, vice president, Steve, O'Donnell, and others. And they made the decision. That they were going to figure out who this person is. They were going to remove this person from the sport. As quickly as quickly and rapidly as possible as swiftly as possible. And it's a brand new garage area that we're talking about. And so there's cameras. It should be a situation where they can look at those surveillance cameras in the garage area determine who that person was. And remove them from the sport quickly. So who has access to that area I was reading much as they could on this this morning as I was arriving. What who has access to that place? Well, there's a there's actually a select few people now Mike, because of covid nineteen, the garage area is roughly one third, or so of the amount of personnel you would typically see. is about sixteen people per team. Because of the COVID nineteen protocol in restrictions, fans are not allowed. This was not a situation where a fan might have meandered in and done this because there were no fans in the garage. So what you're looking at is you're looking at team members. You're looking at officials. You're looking at potential security. You're looking at maybe cleaning personnel that have access to these garage areas. But. There was a lot of speculation last night about whether or not a fan might have made his or her way in there, there were no fans so I think that we can safely say that that can be removed from the from the search and the equation, so obviously as that investigation goes today, you will be there to cover it forest now. This was the first race pandemic in which NASCAR did have fans there a welcoming this time at least five thousand fans. What? What did you see both inside and outside of the track as it relates to the confederate flag? Well first of all, it was a bunch of people who are really happy to be there and I talked to the track staff last evening Mike between the race, being postponed and the news coming out about what was found in Bubbas garage stall, so it was like a a between timeframe there and the track staff was thrilled to report that all of the fans coming in. Were in compliance with the confederate flag ban. Nobody's tried to sneak anything in. Nobody had on clothing that was predominantly based on the flag. Anything like that, so everyone was thrilled. Now, of course we did have the knucklehead who flew the airplane that had the had the banner that Said de-fund Nascar and had a big confederate flag banner, and when you're talking about restricted airspace. When they do figure out who that person was I, imagine might be a bad day. Just a very very odd day. Here at the racetrack at Talladega yesterday and I said this last night Wanna get off onto many tangents, but what I? This is very frustrating for those of us who love the sport. It's disgusting. It's deplorable. It's unacceptable. Any one of those words that you want to use and whomever this person is should be ashamed of themselves. This is not indicative of what NASCAR is and it. It just really frustrates everybody and saddens us because all this does is feed into any as a as as Bubba Wallace said several weeks ago, any racial undertones that the sport might have that the sport might carry from its past. It has tried so hard especially in the last month to take these progressive steps to show that it's unified, and that it wants to be more inclusive. And you have guys like Alvin Kamara coming to the racetrack because they're interested. After the confederate flag ban Marlon, Humphrey. The former Alabama national champion now plays for the Ravens. Marlin was here yesterday. You have Bernard Pollard a former, all pro who is infatuated with the sport right now, asking questions every couple minutes on twitter because he's interested in the sport. Because of this social movement. and. Then you have somebody who does something like this that just all. It doesn't bring that to a halt. But it certainly allows people who are skeptical to go. See a told you so I told you they don't believe it and please. That is not the case that is not the case at all. This sport is not going to stop until they figure out who this is and remove them. Well said Marty. I could feel your passion last night. I feel it this morning, and you'll be there all morning. Four US covering this. If there any developments in the investigation will come back to you immediately. Thank you very much. Meanwhile, there was a lot of reaction on social media yesterday as you would imagine including from Lebron James. tweeted at Bubba, Wallace sickening my brother. No, you don't stand alone I'm writing with you as well as every other athlete. I just want to continue to say how proud I am view continuing to take a stand for change here in America and sports at Nascar blue as well spring cab driver Michael McDowell. Added God help us. The level of evil takes to do something like this is disgusting. Disgusting this is enraging and heartbreaking all at the same time Dale earnhardt Jr. simply tweeted. I hope Bubba wins it tomorrow night. We have more conversation here. Aia Paul Finebaum who covered the sport for years and Marcus Spears is with us this morning. As well Marcus, I just would like to hear is to hear Mardi talking and we follow the events here. What thoughts are going through your mind? You Know Gee. It's funny because more. I had a conversation about a week ago. Martin of. Really good friend of mine we talked about. All Society everything that's going on so. I know I. Know where mortars coming from, but here's my thing. And I'm I. Think Right now everybody is on. We kinda go in with the with the roller coaster. That is when things happen. We shoot up and get all super emotional about it, and you know this whole thing is created I'm done reacting to foolishness. I'm done reacting to fools then reacted to people that don't get it like time is moving forward. They're getting left behind. Racist people are getting left behind. Does that mean that doesn't exist? Know it exists. We see we see it. Play out right with this situation right here but I'm I'm done coming on television talking about idiots? Idiots that had an are cowards and want to do these type of things in the door, because if you do things in the dark, obviously, you know that they are wrong. Obviously you know there is something wrong with you. If you have to had every time, you're doing some foolishness, so who did that? All? I asked like I'm saying for years. It's been my just come out, so we know we are. We'll know how to approach you. It doesn't make it right. It doesn't make it acceptable, but we at least know who you are. Gee! I learned one thing from sports. One of the most important lesson I learned from play sports. Man, just be who you are. Show me who you are I. Respect you more as a team. Mate I respect you as a colleague. I respect you more as a coach. Don't come in as a coach. Don't come into the facility one day. This guy and I don't know what I'm going to get on Tuesday and I. Don't know what I'm going to. To get on Wednesday. This is very simple for me. If you're racist, come out, so we know who you are. Everybody knows how to deal with you, but it's a message to you that your getting. LEBRON NASCAR when they ban the confederate flag. They left you behind this situation. They nephew. We're GONNA, continue to push forward. The country is going to be better for and people that are light that are making their. Play to continue something in this country that's and unnecessary, and they keep tram, but they go lose really well, said Paul Finebaum. You cover this sport for a long time. I'd love to hear your thoughts on what Mardi just said about. The efforts of the sport is sincerely making to try to be more inclusive, and what if any damage to that? You think this incident does. What took him so long Greenie I've been covering sports. Since the eighties, it was racist, then did a stop being racist two weeks ago or NASCAR issued a statement banning the confederate flag. I think that's the issue, and that's the problem right now. Everyone thinks that a radicalized racism. In society as Marcus eloquently put it at or a Nascar in and I know we're talking about a senior incident, but we're going to find out. This very well may have been an inside job. Somebody didn't just perish shoot in from that plane, carrying the confederate flag and do this I mean there are a lot of people that aren't speaking out like Marcus. Marcus alluded to that. Really don't like the fact that this sport is changing. Yes, it's a considerably better sport today. The sport Mardi covered is covering than the one I covered when you heard the N. Word furled around light like like a coke. Can I mean it's absurd, but I give credit for trying to change, but I asked the question what took. Took them so long and finally. This is going to leave an indelible stain on sport. You can't. You can't wipe this away. You CAN'T ARATU Kate racism by a statement. This is a problem for a sport that is still deeply troubled in my opinion gonNA. Leave it there for the moment, but again we do have marty standing by the track if there are. Are Any further developments in this again. It's investigation that could be done relatively quickly. We will have the very latest for you immediately. Meantime we have more news to get to this morning. Deck is expected to sign his franchise tender later today, shefty will join us live. Tell us exactly what that means as we continue. We get up with you on ESPN.

To Football Adam schefter reporting the Dak. Prescott is planning on signing his thirty one point. Four million dollar exclusive franchise tender with the cowboys today, which would make Prescott contractually obligated to report to camp on time. The two sides still haven't told July fifteenth to work out a long term, and it is my delight to bring chaffey back into the has been far too long, and I will just quickly say that with your hair looking. You look so much like Paul Rudd Right now for the moment I i, saw you would actually threw me off, but let's not get ourselves sidetracked from that, but we douglas. What is the significance of deck? Signing this deal? Green from the fact that it does lock them into training camp for the twenty twenty season I think it starts the clock on DAX leverage. He's got the leverage in my mind because there are many quarterbacks that wind up with the franchise tag, there aren't many quarterbacks that wind up playing on a franchise tag is scheduled to make thirty one point four million dollars this season. If the two sides cannot get a long term deal worked out by July fifteenth in deck continues to insist he. He wants a four year deal. The cowboys won a five year deal neither side willing to budge, and they have to franchise them again next year when the cap could be flat or down, due to the lack of attendance, and the lower revenues that means his franchise figure for next year will be thirty seven point seven million dollars when the cap is flat or down, that could be crippling to a cowboys cap where they're already paying Zeke Elliott Amari Cooper and some of the offensive linemen. And then the year after if we're going to extrapolate even more, his franchise figure for that year would be fifty four point four million dollars, so unless Dallas signs him to a long term deal deck is just going to continue to make more money and let me just say this. We're GONNA see at some point time Patrick mahomes signed a new deal and raise the number on franchise figures, quarterbacks and raise the salaries. We'll see Shawn. Watson signed a new deal, and so the prices on. On these quarterbacks is only going to rise, but for the time being DAK is locked in for this year at thirty one point four million dollars, and if you wanted to buy stock in a business, you'd want to buy stock in the business of Dak. Prescott phenomenally explained very quickly because I always assume that all fans know exactly the mechanics of these things they can continue trying to work out a long term deal, but only until July fifteenth, and if they don't then after that he's. He's playing this year on the franchise tag. No matter what that's the way it works, that's correct, and they cannot sign him to a long term deal. During the season so July fifteen is the last day this season that Dak Prescott can sign a long term deal for this year, and so there won't be discussions about any contractor in the season. It's this season right so the only thing that really changes as a result of him signing this is the cowboys can no longer rescinded or. Or whatever it is, he really does claim even more leverage in the situation right shefty real quick, and he won't be lovey. Belly won't be a no show for the start of training camp. Wonder when he's coming in correct so now we have a little clarity. Marcus back whether in Tim Hasselbeck is here very quickly swagger, former cowboy, and you still make your home there in Dallas, or you're close to the situation. What do you think about them a deck making this decision right now? G and I hate. This shift is always smart and know what the hell he talking about but I still stand on the fact that that is the guy that the cowboys wanted to have as their starting quarterback. They wanted to franchise him. There's one cabbie out to my thinking my level of thinking sometimes when we see guys agree to sign these franchise tags. We understand that there is close in this in play of a contract. I'm hoping just for Marseille. Because you know how to set on this show and said that shouldn't do a damn thing. He shouldn't show up. He's been told you shouldn't even say the cowboys name so hopefully I'm praying that it is something close in getting a contract, but if not I understand what shift is coming from and quite honestly I didn't look at it that way I looked at it as when they signed. Andy Dalton is when that was took all the leverage and then signed signing. This tinder out would be reactionary. My thought would be that reactionary to the fact that they already have things in place mark on him, not showing up, so this was kind of a pressure situation. Quickly what you can't see a shefty shaking his head vigorously shefty wire. You're shaking your head vigorously couple mortgage. They're not any closer to a deal. And Dak made the absolute right decision in signing this because it uncertain times you, WanNa lock in your thirty one point four million dollars. What's the downside? How many quarterbacks have weaned saw have we seen suffered career ending injuries, Alex Smith Joe Thighs meant it basically doesn't happen. Deck has a chance to leverage himself into one of the highest payed free agents and NFL. Is, price is not going to go down. He's playing on a great offense with Amari Cooper. Zeke Elliott Michael Gallup and CD LAMB and a great offensive line. There's no downside there's no reason he should have stayed. He should assign this tag when they gave it to start the clock. He's doing it now. Wait let me go whole. Go ahead Marcus. Go here, too. Yeah I gotta get Timmy in here. Go Tim sitting here listening to. Get to the. Duck ends up. That got all the leverage. When you go back to the start of the twenty nine thousand nine season prior to that season, he was cash poor. Go. He basically he had pocketed less than three and a half million dollars at that point, and if you believe reporting from Edward or and there's no reason not to the cowboys offered him a deal that would have paid him about thirty three million dollars per year. He said no to that, and when he said no to that, and he played great in the twenty one thousand nine season now the cowboys were forced. They had the franchise him. which basically puts them in a situation? Where can pay thirty? One million dollars and Adam said. Said thirty seven the next year DAX jumping off point now is two years seventy million, and then whatever you want for him beyond that whether it's a four year or five year deal he. He's in charge now. He's in total control so signing it like Adam is saying as basically acknowledging. Hey, I have two years seventy million dollars from you guys. That's what it says and he's been that guy that by standards in terms of quarterback play. He's been poor. He kind of needs to do that in terms of how he's playing his hand. Nothing, we're going to see the media rights deal. Go Up. We're going to see the money. Go up the longer. Put this off a long term. Deal the more money. He's GonNa make those other quarterback deals on the Holmes and Watson will eventually mean the money will go up. The CAP will eventually go up and deck is GONNA crush P plays a franchise tag men again you want to buy stock in the Dak Prescott business got thirty seconds. They won over G. G exactly what Tim Adam is talking about is exactly why. We can't stay in quarterbacks in the NFL who in the hail say they created? They don't have in the bank. They thirty seven million how we know. Suck this year. We! Are Never has the. I have to take scenario. Don't know what the hell happened with that this year. You know he goes step in the Damn old enough to play third one million dollars. I get it. It's more than what he's made, but we were talking about one hundred plus million dollars. If he signed the low term deal I'd hold this. Hold this started. Coming back with much much much more on this and other quarterback situations as we continue. Our NFL QB tells US why teams would be smart, not only to work out Colin Kaepernick sign him that and more on the way you're watching. Get up on, ESPN. GEICO knows there are many reasons why you ride from the Camaraderie of the other bikers, a band of brothers always there for you rain or shine to the amazing savings you get with Geico on your motorcycle, insurance and accessories coverage all year round, but for your new. It was one reason in particular. It was my hair born with helmet hair. I've tried to cut it a bunch of times even buzzing it, but it immediately just goes back down here. GEICO motorcycle fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percents or more. We are back on. Get up this morning with this developing story. If you're just joining us and have not heard, a noose was found in bubba Wallace's garage stole the NASCAR race in Talladega Alabama yesterday less than two weeks after Wallace led efforts to push NASCAR to ban. The confederate flag Nascar announced the news last night well after the race had been postponed due to inclement weather, and said it was launching an immediate investigation our NASCAR reporter Ryan. McGee had these thoughts. Anymore confederate DNA wives I'll. And I know exactly that my family was on wrong side of history, and that thing and you know I saw some tweeted out the gilmore girls lasted like twice as long as the competitors did is five years, and it was a losing calls, and I'm glad they lost. Even though it was my relatives, so I'm glad they lost their on the wrong side of history, and and these people whoever this person was or people or that put that news. In the garage stall, and whoever side to fly that confederate flag over talent. Today they're on the wrong side of history, and they're scared and this is the last group of the morons. If you're just joining us again, Marty Smith with us live from the track this morning. He remains there, and if there were any updates in the investigation will pass them along immediately. Meanwhile, the postponed event will be the fourth race of the season to be held on a weekday today. That will said. The record it's start of what will be a very busy week. For Nascar there are two more racist slated for this weekend at Pocono raceway again it's a developing story this morning. And as there is any more information, we will bring it to you here meanwhile back to the NFL, Colin Kaepernick has remained a free agent since opting out of his contract with the forty niners. Niners after the twenty sixteen season, and obviously over the last week or so there's been a great deal of conversation about the possibility of getting back into the League in a team bringing him, and so we come back to Adam Schefter with this morning I have a marcus and Tim as well shefty. What is the latest? You're hearing on? Teams being interested in Colin Kaepernick. What we heard Anthony learned the chargers head coach say last week that Colin Kaepernick was on the chargers emergency list of workout quarterbacks, but keep in mind. The chargers used a first round draft pick on Justin Herbert. They already drafted Austin stick last year east and stick lesser. They liked him quite a bit and they have tyrod Taylor as their starters. They're not exactly Banging Down Colin Kaepernick. Store him in for workout right now. At this particular point done. There haven't been any other teams that have stepped forward to. To say we want to bring him in for a workout. We want to sign him. Really not much has changed other than there actually has been one NFL coach and Anthony Charter say coach who brought him up last week and talked about the fact that he would be interested in bringing him to La in the right circumstances, but it's not imminent. It's not pressing. It's not happening anytime soon as of last week, green, Marcus what do you see is as a good fit for con from a football standpoint. Made a couple of places. I won't everybody to hold on to their seats when I say this, so just know that it's about to be a bombshell philly. What about the Philadelphia Eagles when you look at what? Has, happened with Carson Wentz, obviously they drafted. Jalen Hurts A. They have a quarterback in that mobile. He's young. And Colin has been in this type of system athletic, using his ability to get on the outside. That was one of the things. That I sat and watch and ask you talk about with Nick. foles run into RPO and doing things to create leverages against defenses. You look at Buffalo with Roman there. Who was this coach? San Francisco as well. The League is actually trending towards what Colin Kaepernick was doing for the forty niners during his time, and when he was playing at an elite level so that, but that feeling one is interesting to me to be able to come into philly tobacco, winter or even be behind. Jalen hurts based on what they drafted looking. Looking for quarterback to give you that athletic ability, and also be able to play at a high level, but but there there are places man. When you you look at what Baltimore deal with Robert. Griffin third everybody left rg three Alpha Day. He couldn't play anymore plus he got interested. ATHLETICISM was gone ended up in Baltimore becoming the backup playlist in preseason games as well so there are a number of places that you could see as long as he's ready to come back and play in ail. What do you think tim? Marcus makes a good point about the way the League is trending. The League is trending to doing more of the stuff that call them was really good at doing back in two thousand thirteen, and so in terms of fits I think you can look at teams like the Seattle seahawks the Atlanta. Falcons the rams, but those would be teams that I think it would make sense to have an established quarterback. Yes, but some of the stuff they're doing offensively would fit the skills that we saw Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick possess in the national football league back when he was a starter, so I think from a physical standpoint if he's doing some of the same stuff that we saw him do when he was in San Francisco as a starter I, think you can easily get to a point where you go Haiti second. We'd rather him in that then. Matt Shaw or Gino Smith or some of the guys with some of those teams I mentioned and how about the dynamics at play chef, raising his and whenever? Of Re mortgages to research teams the hawks last week Pete Carroll came out and said he admitted he made a mistake in not signing Colin. Kaepernick, in two thousand seventeen well, it's not too late to rectify that mistake now. It's not like they have somebody else out there Gina Smith has been pretty good, but they could bring in another quarterback Colin Kaepernick and Baltimore is a team that taught to Colin, Kaepernick before the Ravens owner was insulted like think. Everybody has moved on from this at this point time, and maybe the two sides could go revisit that those two teams that talk to capture nick and the best. Best that would make sense now as much as anybody else. I'm GONNA leave that there for the moment because I. There's other stuff I want to get to this morning, but we'll come back to. This I'll be fascinated to see if and when Colin Kaepernick does wind up with another team, but there's another NFL situation than beers keeping an eye on particularly for me on happy with his current contract first team, all pro safety Jamal Adams told the jets he wanted to be traded last week. The cowboys are one of seven teams Adams reportedly welcome, being traded to and yesterday. Listen to this Adams told fan he's trying. Was Grow. Coming to Dallas. Terrific so there's that. Shefty what I mean, wh, what is GONNA happen here? suggests. Don't want you. Trade Jamal Adams Greenie. That doesn't mean that they won't trade him. At one point time a couple of years ago, the Oakland Raiders didn't want to Trade Khalil Mack, and then later in the summer. They did just that and so I think there are teams out there. That are investigating the possibility of whether they could make a deal that makes sense for Jamal. Jamal Adams, but it's GonNa take somebody going to the jets and reeling. Step up up to give up. The jets give the jets the compensation they need and then perhaps give Jamal Adams the compensation that he would need so it's a tough try to pull off because of where the jets are right now. Jamal Adams can keep mentioning teams names and mentioning places he'd like to go. Go and there are a number from out there the fact that it matters. He's under contract to the jets for a couple more years day. Control his rights and right now. They're not implying to trade him. It doesn't mean they won't listen. It doesn't mean they wouldn't trade them for the right offer, but it's GonNa take a big offer. The jets are going to think about parting. Parting ways which Amal Adam, so those of you don't watch a Lotta jets football. He's not a good player. He's great he is, he is a genuinely great player, but at something that is not considered, be a premium position so so marcus I come to you and I. He's an Lsu like you. Are I know you know him, but my question to you would be this. Do you rip up the contract and make him happy. Which is obviously what he wants for a player at that position in the NFL in twenty twenty. It's an honest question. What do you think is the right thing to do? Yes you rip the contract up g because he's going to be a Stallworth on your defense for a number of years to come Jamal Adams has basically outperformed his rookie deal like he. He is the catalyst for the New York jets. Here's the one place that has been of consistency. Since he arrived in the organization with them. Being saying though I don't think Jamal albums wants to be in New York I. Think the money would just incentivize him to stay there, but I believe his heart is. Is already elsewhere possibly in Dallas or with teams that he desires, and I know you hate to hear that G and I understand because when you have really good players on your team that you root for you WanNa. Keep them, but this is the first time they need to just break up. They need a break up. It's not it's. We've all been in those relationships whether you're man or woman that you've been in their relationship, you say man she. She is such a good person, she. She does everything I ask of her, but there's something missing and I just gotTa. Get outta here right, and then you meet the one that you marrying continue to be with you love, and you build his life with, but you always remember that one that you thought could have been the wife that was just something was not there. That's Jamal Adams in the New York. Jets something is not there Jamal Adams is ready to bounce. He's ready to go this the first time we've talked about this. This this is the first time it's come up and it's obvious that he wants to be out because publicly. Damore Adams knows at this time. Whatever you say in public is going come I mean whatever you say in private is GonNa Come Out to light? The Dude was obviously recording, and he said we trying to get the Dallas stodgy. He ready to go. Just break up. Man, agree to disagree and break up. It's Jamal. Break Up. So what you're basically saying is that he's the only. Player drafted in forever and he's just not that into me. That's basically what you're telling me. He's just not that into me I. Two questions seriously shefty. Take. How how what happens here? Give me some mechanics. How does this happen if it's GonNa Happen. Well I think this dance is going to go on into the summer. Frankly, it's not like the jets I believe we're going to go and move him this week. Because he issued the list of teams that he would welcome a trade too so again. This is a whole long dance, and I think it would take a team truly stepping up and right now NFL teams are gathering their last breaths before they hopefully report back to training camp next month's I don't think that this is the time. Time that that happens I think two three weeks from now. Maybe there's a team that puts together a package a compelling package that could get the jets to think and start conversations on a potential deal, but it's not happening right now. I don't believe even though there are teams. I know who are thinking about him so I just in thirty seconds. If for the sake of discussion, the cowboys got him and put him in that secondary and just gave up draft picks. How does that make them? down. That's the game. Changer. We've talked about the site. Despite analysis had some guys step up sparingly and have good games, but the inconsistency at where they were, they had to move. They move our from safety to cornerback. You stand Jamal Adams. It changes the landscape your defense. That's the bottom line. Know How you're paying Jamal Adams Zeke Elliott Amari Cooper and Dak Prescott who wants you can't pay. Everybody doesn't work like that exactly. Tell a shefty. They paying back so they pay you stay at fine everything. They'RE GONNA, pay thirty one million bucks every day on by the. Say everybody. Hanes and Deck this year so good to. Hear and they're the only team in the NFL. They're holding the bump one way or another we go. We're GONNA. Turn our attention to the NBA in a moment with that phrase on your screen, and why it is so important and schefty and Marcus will discontinue. Yell at each other because you know what there's nothing better than that this is. The cowboys. Believe paid all these guys over twenty. Don't that they don't have a cap. Accord you. They don't have a by. Back on get up NBA. Players have until Wednesday to inform teams whether or not they plan on participating in the bubble restart at Disney's wide world of sports in Orlando, but as you've seen. If you've been paying any attention to the news, Corona virus cases have been surging in Florida which adds yet another wrinkle to players decisions, and here's our insider Brian Windhorst and Wendy through a series of sort of unrelentingly bleak news that I saw over the weekend. You had one phrase that gave me a lot of optimism that they'll do it, and that phrase is. Too Big to fail and Greenie I. pull up clips from the show with me. Talking to you in April and I was talking about some of these things are coming to fruition now and I thought that it was not going to happen because of it, but I wouldn't be Austin I didn't understand how the momentum of would work and based on the conversations that I'm having across the League. Yes, there's going to be players. Start testing positive tomorrow. Yes, we're GONNA have players who are so focused on. On the societal challenges that we have that they can't play basketball. Yes, we're going to have players who say I'm the stay over here in Europe I think it's going to be safer for my family. Yes, we're going to have players who were like I. Don't think this is a good time for me to go to Orlando not just because of the corona, but because I've got free agency coming up and I'm worried about injuries and despite all of that. It's going to forward whether that will be the mood in two weeks i. cannot tell you, but for now this is going to happen. There's a lot of players excited about this. We're going to be dealt with setbacks. The League believes they've protected themselves. No setbacks, but it is going forward, and what's the most important stuff fans need to know about how they're doing it. And what the the mechanics in the process of getting this whole thing started. Right well, what they're saying is look, we understand. The situation in Orlando is challenging were hoping that they're working on getting better, but we're building a bubble and our bubble will be safer. Our bubble will be safe whether it's in Orlando, or whether it's in Katmandu and part of this bubble just the players some information yesterday on these with these tracking rings that they want them to wear. That potentially could identify possible corona virus infection. Day, or two ahead of when it might show up in a test and there whether the players are actually going to wear it when they away from basketball, and and could potentially be monitored. That's another story altogether, but they have taken. Precaution, they can greeny, and they believe that this will be insulate them and give them the best opportunity and of away. They will go all right outstanding insight Brian Windhorst. Thank you, my man. We'll stay close to you. Is this thing works its way towards Wednesday? So that's the news from the NBA and their attempt to restart. Then there's the college football news which seemed to be just terrible all weekend. Twenty-three clemson players have tested positive for covert since they and the staff returned to campus two weeks ago, according to the school, the majority of those were as symptomatic meanwhile. was placed a large number of its football players in quarantine in an effort to slow the spread of the virus. Not all players in isolation have tested positive. Lsu Begin voluntary workouts on June night Kansas State has suspended all full workouts for two weeks as a Friday, fourteen of the one hundred and thirty athletes tested positive for covid nineteen. They've been placed in self-isolation for at least ten days and then Ucla. Current players in one former player have signed a document that asks for third party. Health officials to be put in charge of making sure safety guidelines are being followed at the school. Players are scheduled to return to campus on July six, so there's all of that and here they are Laura Rutledge back and Paul Finebaum is here and Laura. We've been talking about this now for months. It feels like the last few days have been really rough. What are you hearing from the people you talk to? Yeah I think you just said it Greenie in the best way possible, it's been rough. I think the other part of this is that I'm hearing that there are many more cases that we don't know about, and that's to be expected, but I think this is more widespread in and maybe a larger volume of cases than people even realize within college football. It's interesting, too, because you brought up that UCLA story, I'm getting much more of a sense of concern from some of the players that I'm talking to wasn't there even a couple of weeks ago and there's actually players who were trying to figure out how they could write a letter to the NCAA expressing their. Their concern, but here's the problem. They want to try and remain anonymous because they're concerned that all of a sudden. Maybe a university would say hey. If you're that worried about this in just don't even play. We can go ahead and Quarantine. You and you don't even have to be a part of this. It's this double edged sword where they're worried for their hope, but they also still really WanNa play football and want to be given a fair chance to compete. This will continue to be very complicated and I think you'll see a lot. More schools have to enforce some quarantine and yet still in all of this most of the people that I talked to A. Coach's still are planning on starting college football on time Laura I know this is a complicated question, but but again we've been talking about this and working your way towards this for months. Has this thus far been in your view greater than worse than what most people involved were expecting? has this exceeded what they were expecting to happen? I think it's about what they expected. But maybe not as immediate of spread and look I mean I can't exactly speak for every single person, but the the large amount of people. That I've talked to thought that there would be positive tests I mean. They were expecting that that's why they had all these plans in place, quarantine and ways to try and keep these players safe and healthy. Healthy, but until it was going to happen, they didn't exactly know how they were going to handle it. And how people would react and I think the other big piece of this and I know Paul has more on this to the parents side of it, the concern amongst the parents now this is becoming very real and I think that changes the level of concern go ahead, Paul. Yeah I. think that's really the issue. The parents are starting to call coaches around the country and say. How are you going to keep my son say I know of at least one school where the head coach had to have a zoom meeting green with his team to try to calm everyone down because it's getting rather chaotic and Laura's right. There are there are several double digit cases that I have heard of at major places that we are not being told about and I I think it's a situation where college football. If they don't get control of it now, they may lose control. Remember one important thing. These are voluntary workouts, and there are new students on campus. What's going to happen if students start pouring onto campuses and and. That's a problem that presidents are facing all across the country this morning. Most schools that I'm aware of are planning on bringing their students back to campus regular students. I should say not just the athletes in the fall, but we'll see if that remains the case Paul transparency is a huge word in our culture today. What are your expectations relative to and the College football season? So far, it's been very disappointing. The ones who are being transparent are making the lead the lead story on ESPN every afternoon and morning the ones who aren't are underground somewhere, but I think it's time for there to be more I mean. This is a critical situation. You can't keep this within and by the way most of this will get Alpo because these players are texting back and forth with buddies at other schools, so it won't be. It won't be down low for long. Long in the real problem I think for college. Football is stemming this negatively. It's not over yet. Lars, correct every idea saying the right thing. Do they really believe it? Some of the ones I'm beginning to hear from really don't believe it any longer although they're communicating it publicly. We're going to play football. Are we though Laura quickly? What are you looking for now? What? What's the next step in this? What are you keeping an eye on today? Well, let's keep track of what happens when Oklahoma brings their players back scheduled for July first Lincoln Riley. Was a little concerned about how all of this would go. Let's see how they monitor things I. Think you just have to look and see what's reported and how these schools are keeping the players safe that just containing as much as possible. It's going to be a big key here for things to start on time or or to start at all. We'll. We'll keep a close eye on this because again in the colleges, they obviously have a different set of challenges. The pros do guys great work. Thank you both great to see you both and I want to mention that we will continue to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the historic title nine ruling with two more days of our women's sports centric initiative anchored by more programming across all of our networks ESPN. Dot COM ESPN audio and ESPN WS social handles. As we continue DAX expected to sign this franchise tenders today, so who better to get reaction from than cowboys superfan Stephen Smith? He's GonNa. Be Mad. We even said that joke. He's on the way it's off.

Stevie hot day here finally. Only had three straight as but brutal. Yeah, I know I know that because I I like to flip through. When I get a chance.

He was wearing ski equipment ski clothing one week and then. I guess this week for you, guys. He said it was unbearably hot in Yep. As I expected I like last week, got my roof painted. I have a metal roof, and it's black, and as I expected, it was going to be warmer because my little studio here is up in the attic area, which is nicely finished and everything, so it's quite nice, but oh boy I'm right in front of a skylight and now a black metal roof I'm thinking I've added about I. Don't know seven degrees to the temperature holy cow! Somebody House Me Down I. Got to give a little shout out. He's he's a listener to our show lives here in evident friend of Mine Johnny Healing. and. He started coming to Sudbury with me.

I gotta say these guys on the on the PGA tour like they play in some of the most extreme heat, and they're asked to where the long pants on top of that right like I. Don't know how they do it. I don't know how they maintain some focus the guys there on father's Day playing with three bodies, and I got off to a bad start and one thing about me is I'm competitive? And I tend to focus when when I feel like okay I'm I'm I'm really trailing badly. I, kind of bear down I can kind of get back in things most of the time, but because it was so hot I get over the ball. I'm down by seven strokes. Felt like I was melting I. I must have lost by about thirty strokes to the three guys. I was playing with a with so freaking hot, and that's why I. Admire the guys on the PGA tour because at the end of the day they're human beings, they all the skill in the world. They're freaks of nature as far as golfers go, but heat is heat, and these guys somehow managed to power through it and maintain their focus and continue to be great. Yup I went one time Phoenix's is the equivalent of Florida the destination spot for people in Ontario. Phoenix's out here. It's just a two and a half hour shot three hour plane right, and of course it's beautiful in the desert. Everyone knows and it's. It's unbearably hot in the summer there. Okay Golf courses don't even they're not even open. Okay lots of them. They don't even. Get it gets like forty two degrees forty, thirty, eight, hundred ten Steve Hundred fifteen degrees. So, I went down there. To to look for a house I was GONNA. I was GONNA buy a house down there at one time. And are thinking about it and I went down to look at some houses. On jump on the plane went down there and got the realtor, and it's like I went and July okay do. There and It's like. Crazy hot. Like burning hot, okay, I'm just dashing from shade patched. Getting in the car given during the air on. On you know and So I played golf in the morning. Got Played Golf in the morning. It was okay, but you're just ripping the bottles of water. Okay like like the guy throws a twenty four bottles of water in the twelve in each card. I'm really he goes well. You keep drinking it. I'm telling Ya even if you don't feel like, keep drinking it, you know, and so I'm drinking this and you never take a leak right I. Don't know why, but you just drink water and you never have to. Take a piss you know, and so we drink it all day and and it's time to go look at some houses. So off, we go, and you know I'm looking at one. Four or five thousand, all of a sudden of a Sunday get like super nauseous and I wanNA. BARF, and I'm completely Pale, and Ashen and I got a light out right and the guy says so. This is about two hours after I. Finished Golf Right and the guy said you stopped drinking water, didn't you? I said well I did. Andy said you got drink it all day. You know you got you got to. and. I ended up having. I was getting heat stroke. Sweating sweat it all out. Basically all your any hydration you try and do it just right out over every single inch of your body. Yeah, and if you saw someone, walking and Phoenix, it's the equivalent of if you're an auto on. It's minus thirty five and you saw a guy walking outside without a hat on. You know with his, you know. His Chin tucked down into his chest. And you know you'd pick them up right. You'd say dude. YOU'RE GONNA! You'RE GONNA get? You gotta give them. It's the same thing there. If you see someone walking outside with no water, no hat on or something like that to do. You're going to die, know if you. Talk get in the shade. Okay, well good stuff. I want to get into a couple of stories here. That Dean race Certainly the the topic has. Captured the world's attention particularly over the last month month and a half. But this one may be one of those stories where you go. Okay I. that may be taking it past the point of being reasonable, but let's let's hear people think about it. It comes from a website called deadspin that probably most sports fans are familiar with. It's kind of like a like a Guy Sports. Website and they're one of the writers is named Rob Parker, and he is a black man, and the screaming headline is. We've lived with the master's name long enough. He's talking about Augusta National and the most famous golf tournament the world and his suggestion is, they've got to stop. NASCAR did the unthinkable banning the confederate flag from its events, and we're going to talk about that by the way in just a second. All kinds of different in a racist stereotypical images on packaging like Mrs Butterworth's and. Uncle. Ben's those are all on the way out, and he says the name the masters must go. And I thought that was. Awfully extreme. I'm keen to hear what you think. First of all I think the timing of that is wrong. Ironically okay I think the timing of we got way bigger problems right now with racism than we do. There's a bunch of issues here right now. That people are standing back, saying okay, what are we going to do about this right? You've had these. These massive protests turned violent. People are know people have finally had enough about it. And of course this all comes on the heels of George Floyd death. And what? What is clearly in my mind, police brutality. And now that's come to the forefront and it should, and it should. So it's it's A. It's a deadly serious issue. Deadly serious and it's time that that people act. Act to it or not react. To it value we gotTA. You gotTA move. Move somewhere into into into solving this problem or at least trying to do it. And if you don't think it's a big problem, you know there's another story you're going to bring up. There was a noose in guys, graduate black guy on, and there's all sorts of its Steve Down South. A friend of mine, and not just down south, but a friend of mine went to a NASCAR race would. And the kid had his hat on backwards with his grandfather and the and the F- grandfather this these guys are sitting in front of my buddy. And he smacked the hat off and said. Know! Don't wear your hat like some an. You're talking. Six seven years ago Steve when the guy was there, right? So, it's crazy. It's crazy. It's like Whoa man. Where are we? You know and. So I think it's a really big issue for this guy to come forward tango. Here's here's here's an atrocity. Is the name of this golf tournament called the Masters I? Just think the Times may be. It may not. I? Like, he wrote in this article. You automatically think of slavery when you hear the name Masters and I disagree. I don't I don't? Maybe the black community does I. Don't know I'm always cautious about commenting this 'cause I'm white and I don't know firsthand the. Terrible thing that happens to to black America org or people who are black in the world. Russ ordinal talked about his wife. Being shuttled from a restaurant in Switzerland or something you know so. I just looked at timing things wrong. I think he's minimizing actually. What's going on so today? I'M GONNA come. I almost think it's a guy sitting back on okay I got to come up with some story here. Question that goes on people looking for ways to. Capitalize on if that's the right word, but to tap into what's going on in the world and something topical. Here's how I feel about it I. It's an extreme take, and I'm not going to dismiss it. Though like I love the tournament so much I hate the idea of mucking with with with the tradition of of a name that I've you know I think it's I've always thought the name to be classy. I've never like you, said I never remotely thinking the name is being racist I only think of these guys as the masters of the sport of. But like you said I'm a I'm a middle, aged white guy, too, and I'm not a black guy who's had to endure. So much garbage! I've never I. Mean I've I've I've had abuse I've been bullied, but not because of the color of my skin, just because I'm dealing with a jackass and the right kind of thing, if this is generally and truly offensive to a sizable number of black people. Then have at it. Don't change right at. That's if this is just one guy looking for click bait, though try to capitalize, come up with a story idea and it's not truly something that's offending him. GET LOST! You know I think. I- bottom line is I don't totally dismiss it until I know that like. Because if the past owners of Augusta. And probably a few who are still members are owners Augusta. If they weren't so recently racist themselves then I wouldn't even entertain it as a subject, but I have no idea. Whether the name originally back in the Bobby Jones, days back in the nineteen thirties when this thing came to be I don't know one way or the other, whether this was some sort of sly gnawed to like slave, masters, or not I just don't know, and I wouldn't even entertain that if it weren't for the fact that this this is a this course didn't allow. black men to be members until nineteen ninety and I think it was a fairly recent thing is well that women got to be so did this bad thinking going on? And so Yeah? I'd I'd need to know more information as to whether this is beyond this one writer something this truly offending black people. Yeah, I. Look at it this way you know. Gun Laws. Right. Are you know they got to be looked at right? People debate this all the time. The right to to bear arms should we are not, and there's there's obvious reasons. That, we don't want to do it. And and yet people are against it you know, and and because of because of the terrible outcomes that the terrible consequences when a gun gets into the hands over wrong person, so that's that's a big issue, right? There's been some terrible terrible things that have happened with with people have access to guns. The equivalent of this guy bringing up this masters thing when we're right in the middle of of the atrocity of what happened in. What appears to be a racist thing, the the equivalent of The of the gun laws that got gotta look at it and try and figure out one way or the other. equipment. Is this guy coming forward? When that's going on and saying you know what they gotta, they gotta change the months of the hunting season. You know. And it's like well, maybe we do, but that's very low here. On the list of things that we gotta do right and that's how I think about this masters thing, I think it's almost an insult. To. What's going on in our world right now? For this guy to go, this is this is an outrage. No. That's not an outrage suit. That's not an outrage. Yeah, he's talking about it like it. Says loaded a word the masters I'm talking about. The N. Word Right The N. Word has one possible definition, and it's all horrible. Whereas the masters like yes, it was applied to someone who was a slave owner along time ago, so I get that there is some level of trigger, but at the same time like I, it is a word that is a million applications like thousands of things you can master. And and then you have to factor in okay. So, what are we going to do? All these master's degrees that people get? What are you doing with mastercraft tools? What are you gonNa do with a masterpiece painting a mastermind? It's never end master yeah. You and I over I'm over fifty. If I want to compete in, Tennessee can compete in the masters level right of it right. There's there's the on and on know on and on that. You know what's the intention of the Steve? Soul Yeah I. Just think the guy's timing is wrong and I. If we looked at a list of things, we got a handle right now. That are beyond offensive. You know to to to black people. I think it's safe to say that they're going to go okay. Let's see. We're going table that for another time. Okay? We've got bigger ship that we gotta deal with right now than that. And the other thing Steve. What one of the one of the things. That that we have to fix. And I agree with is. The black people have not been represented very well. You know over over our generations and generations before us and you know when Barack Obama got in right that was that was a huge day a huge day for moving forward. You know and and and job applications there there was you know that that we wanna make sure that it's inclusive. you know it was I? Guess last year Stephen were doing a show there was there was a fuss that was put up about that. There's not enough black coaches in the NFL so that always becomes something. We'd better look into this thing and see what's going on. So. What I don't get. What I don't get is. Aunt Jemima Syrup. Uncle Ben's rice and I know I, I read a little thing that that. The masters only allowed black patties. For for many years you know it was as little as nine hundred seventy five was the first time they a lot of black player Those three things so. Black CADDY's uncle. Ben's answer Mima. I don't know why they would change that. You know. Because there are black, and they are endorsing a product, and they are the face of a product you know. You know what I'm getting at Steve Well. I mean I think I'm a little confused. You know I'm sure. You know that's if you're a white guy. Starting at a sentence with I don't know why they did that to say well, there's enough. Black people in the world who are wildly offended by that, and that's our job. I think find some level of education that, but with this thing with the masters like like you were talking about when you say we decided is something that does offend a large portion of the black population. Then you deal with it. You've already got a ready made name. used to be called the Augusta National Invitational so off you go, but even if it is not determined to be a problem like you said, it's priority wise, it's like problem number one thousand as many many more. Big Hurdles. This thing has to get over before you start worrying. I think pretty innocuous name. Well, you bring up a great point. You bring up the great point. If this guy's argument is when you hear the word, masters, That! You're gonNA think of slavery. But I don't. I don't and you bring up a good point. What about like a master's degree a master's level in sports on and on and on you know mastercraft all that stuff. And listen that that club you know a the masters and the and the chairman, and all the directors who are on the board of of Augusta National Right. These guys were caught in ancient times. Man Ancient Times for way too long, right? You know they didn't lot. We remember the member women right it's it's certainly in our time. Right that they've finally changes that women were allowed to play. Host the host an amateur event there now to for women's amateur events so. It's coming along. It's just it's a little slow sure and it's good to see some evolving happening. But, my knee, jerk, that headline and deadspin was you know what? Getting rid of the name I'm not sure I get that to me. It's a tournament for people who've mastered the game of Golf. The name isn't there to remember. Men Who mastered other human beings. But then read up on the history of Augusta and you say well nineteen ninety was the first time they they a lot of black guy to become a member of the course with that kind of history I can't dismiss this outright, and without knowing again. What level of population of black people truly offended by this? Maybe it's a larger number that I think it is then we can have a discussion about it Bob. Costas all over this thing. He was on with Dan Patrick. Number of years ago, and he said about the masters what no CBS commentator CBS having of course the broadcast rights has ever alluded to even passing. Even during a rain delay even when there was time to do so is Augusta's history of racism and sexism. Kosta said even when people were protesting. Just outside the grounds forget about taking a side. The broadcasters never even acknowledged it, so not only will I never work the masters because I'm not CBS to start with NBC lifer, but if I did work at the at CBS, did work the masters I'd have something to say about it, and then I would be immediately ejected. So with that level of history I don't know that I can take this deadspin thing and say you know. Just chuck it in the garbage. That's just dumb. But if that's listen Steve, if you keep going back far enough, right, you keep going to. You're going to find points in history where it was craziness craziness about slavery and certain. Areas of the country that you know that it was, there was overt frigging racism. You know so Can you really say okay I am not going to I'm not going to. Participate in this something I'm not going to go to that city. Because of what happened. One, hundred, two, hundred, three, four, five hundred ago. You know part of this is all part of the. Trying to make things better, so if the masters as a name is is causing issue. That's not to say that. We Burn Down Augusta for having this name or having this history, but we evolve, and if the masters as a name is seen as problematic and offensive to to black people then yeah, you switch it up. Anyway, that's we'll leave it for now. Let's take our first time out when we come back. We'll get into this story about BUBBA. Wallace one of the feel, good stories was a bad story to start my dad, but one of the field good stories as it turns out NASCAR and we'll get to that next after these words I.

This story from NASCAR. Pretty, incredible, one. Talladega superspeedway, Ghent or speedwagon REO speedwagon at the Talladega superspeedway over the weekend gross story in that bubble Wallace, who is a black race car driver? He was the guy that helped get the confederate flag banned from NASCAR events, and over the weekend in his garage stall. Somebody somehow placed a symbol of hate, a noose in his stall and. That was pretty damn gross. It's amazing. The number of NASCAR fans that are upset by this removal of an obviously racist symbol in the confederate flag and this was their game plan and it was also like. A son of a former, NASCAR driver who tweeted out something along the lines of they would have liked to seen them. Take that news and drag bubble wallace around with it because he's ruined the sport for him because of the loss of confederate flag like God like that's the redneck racist stuff times a million. Anyway. What was beautiful is at the end of the race on the weekend yesterday. It was like. The shore of support that Wallace perceived as he came into the pits, the final time like. Friends walking beside him, he had entire crews of other racers walking behind his vehicle, as he came in to kind of finish out end of the race and Wallace when it's over a climbs out and he's still sort of sitting in the window. The driver's side of his car and he just SORTA lose it and Richard Petty the Greater Nascar driver of the past who has the team that Wallace drives for. He's right there. Pat Him on the back. Big Hugs and it's just There's A. Bit Of covid distancing issues there but. It was certainly an emotional moment and the support. The Wallace received boy that was just one was beautiful. Things have seen in sports all year. What, I really like about that Steve Is. They've they've turned. What was a terrible situation where everyone's putting pressure on everybody to have some sort of stand on this thing and to come forward and not be silent. When you think of the Kapernick thing when that happened. One of the one of the topics that came out of that one of the issues was. Protesting during. These games is not a good idea. You know some of the owners look at. It's too much of a distraction. How can we make it a positive thing? We don't want to ignore it. We don't WanNA. Put shoving aside what you're going through, but but let's do this in in a in a better way, and these guys got on. You know through that that there's a fantastic way to keep the awareness up about it. Without being in a negative connotation if you know what I mean, Yup. Fantastic deal great great thing that they did you know it's moving to watch it, you know. I watched it. An hour ago is it's incredible. It's incredible and it's it's A. It's a really really good way for. Sports. To look at this thing and say, what can we do to help? What can we do to help? welcoming due to increase awareness and all that stuff, and and I have to agree the protesting stuff. Doesn't always work here. You know we've had A. Glaring example of it, but the violent protest. You know so. Done well done I. think it's really really cool what they did. and not something in protest. At that time you know, let's use this event. Let's show support for the guy. Let's make some sort of statement. That are are league NASCAR shows support for this thing, and not I'm not GonNa race, you know. I'm I mean car racing? I'm not going to participate in, you know we still want to keep it together. We want to keep the thing, but we gotta move forward got to. Do something. That's a really proactive. Action and the kind of thing the world needs right now. To see that kind of support. For bubba Wallace was Great Ryan McGee is a writer with ESPN, and he penned an open letter to the person who put a noose in the garage. Stall, bubba Wallace and I'm going to paraphrase it. I'M GONNA cut it down. Give you the gist of it. He said you know what it didn't work. Congratulations, you've failed. In fact, what you accomplished was the complete opposite of what you set out to do. When you tied a rope into a loop, called the aerial advertising guy or ruined the resale value on your truck by bolting a flagpole into the bad, no nation confederate, or otherwise rallied behind your antiquated 'cause. Instead the reinforcements who did role in gathered to stand together on the other side of your pitiful effort to divide and conquer the right side, and you know WanNa know who really wasn't scared. BUBBA Wallace. Yes, bubba wept on Monday at Talladega, but it wasn't because he was rattled by someone throwing down a piece of rope, in fact, a lot of his cried Monday, but it certainly wasn't because of you. The always impressive anonymous bully pushed our buttons. It was because those other thirty nine drivers pushed Wallace car all the way to. To the front of the pre race grid, and then so many of them repeatedly pushed his car toward the front of the dynamic draft, and that that was pretty powerful stuff. It's good read on ESPN DOT COM, but the kind of sums it up the unbelievable outpouring of support for Bubba, Wallace, and not just for bubble wallace, but for the world it know my father always told me you know you you. You can't argue with anyone. You can't convince anyone of of your side of something if it's their opinion. You know! Because in the end, it will always be there opinion. So we can go back and forth on something, and and a lot of times, their opinion is irrational. If not insane. If not psychotic, and can I intervene on that like I I know it's hard to change people's opinions, but I don't know that never is a word. I'd use for changing opinions because that would make for. A pretty bleak world moving forward because that's really what the world is asking for right now because there's a lot of people with back. Stupid opinions. Racism being the dumbest opinion of all. and. We're asking people to evolve from that changed their opinions and I hope that that I hope that you're not right when you say that you can't change. Facts don't lie. Okay facts. Facts do not line, and that's what I'm talking about. Okay, and the fact of the matter is okay that we've got a huge problem with racism. Okay. It's big. It's glaring. It's nowhere near. Solved. Nowhere near it so. This guy has an opinion about this guy and I think the matter what you say to this guy or what you do is going to change his opinion. Even when you try and deal so when you deal in facts if they don't if they don't acknowledge that, then you're dealing with someone who's irrational. You know and. Might be suffering from mental illness. So some of that stuff's insane to me. What that what that guy did? And the GUY said? Drag by the by the news footed around his neck and drag him. You know and. So when when I see that SORTA stuff steve. I back down and go you know you're you're dealing with someone who is I don't think mentally. Stable so you can't. You got nowhere to go. You got nowhere to go and so don't try and make sense of what this guy did. It's. Over, the top, it's crazy. It's you know beyond res it's it's nuts. You know know. Don't don't try and figure out what that guy's trying to do. It's fucking crazy. You don't totally crazy. The thing is you know it's it's a it's a racist, obviously and he's probably in his own personal life, surrounded by like minded people, whether it's his parents or his group of friends his wife I. Don't even know agenda. We're talking about here, but the people around this person. have similar opinions. They're like minded and as such it validates the way this guy feels and empowers them to do shit like this, and this is what scares the life out of me with all of these anonymous Internet messages and forums that you can get into guys. This is something for every demented personality trait that and you can feel vindicated. You can feel validation because there's enough clowns in the world. Who might feel like you do and then you then you act accordingly. What I'm. What I'm saying is like you know when we if we can change some opinions and the more people that have forward thinking that are surrounding this guy in in whatever you know, little backwater town. This guy lives in like if he's surrounded by people who suddenly are evolving in their takes then then, maybe he can change because we've always said right that racism is a learned trait, a bad one. Well if you're going to change a guy's opinion, okay if we were able to show we, there's many examples that we can show that. This is a problem. Okay, Racism! And, it's been it's been going on for a while. Okay, it's been going on for a while where people stepped in. To to try and tell people this is wrong. And if that if that's not enough, that's been happening over the last three or four decades five six decades. If that's not enough to change your mind, you're never going to change your mind. You know see you got here's. You know you got. The awareness is getting better and better. It's getting and then you get this Wamel. whammo a guy putting a noose in the guys garage. Yes, like. If this guy did how how can you possibly you know what I mean? That that! Surely surely you can see this problem, so that's what's happening with a guy like that. I almost wish the guy wouldn't have. Well worded what he said, you know I'm almost like. Don't give this guy any recognition at all you know. Don't make it all about Wallace. Make it all about Wallace and not you know that, because sometimes those guys you. You know would love that. Look at their look at here got them got them. They're writing about me there, right you. Wouldn't even. I wouldn't give this guy mentioned at all. I just again I'm I understand where you're coming from I just. Like to have a more optimistic view of humanity, I think about. Trade or anything I think about like that old Bruce Hornsby and the range song. That's just the way it is. You know some things never change. Don't you? Believe them like it's because it is something. We often suss out every. We often dismiss her wave her hand and say that's just the way it is unfortunately. No, that's not right. I think that things can't change is my point. This ticket time out again. When we come back on the show, we'll wrap things up with back-to-back bubbas. Bubba Watson saying that his game is actually being hurt by some of his playing partners. We'll get to that next after these words if you're loyal listener, you've probably heard me on this podcast before I'm Josh Mallon Sheri- Ontario I'm also a big fan of the show if you are to, we'll probably get along great rates, and I'm your Guy Collared Text Eight, six, zero, six, zero, zero, eight, or check out all INS dot.

Have you had to look at it seen? Well you know what Steve. There was a great story of daily winning one the PGA. Must. Be Early Ninety S. When he was walk on. He slept in his car. Right slept slept in his car drive million hours to get up there. You got the call the night before someone pulled out, he was next on the list as alternate got up there, and he talked about sleepiness car, and you go. Oh, my God. Imagine sleeping in the car. I might get one of those car steve because I can sleep at. I would love to lie down in one of those those cars in that Lincoln okay, that's I get in there and go I'm going for a nap and was going. Going onto to the Lincoln math all right, let's get a little shut eye in there as this palace. It's always good to have a plan. In case, there are a little podcast company doesn't. Keep growing the way, we hope! But! Let's go live in the car. Okay, let's wrap things up today with a tale of Bubba Watson. Good lefty always have a soft spot for the lefties, and he doesn't WANNA ton in terms of majors lately, but still one of the top golfers out there and doesn't suffer fools gladly, and he says that it really really matters who he's playing with playing partners mean a lot, and he actually says there are guys on the tour that are as much as two shot penalty when you see your paired with them on the sheet. What do you think that? It's funny. But he went too far. Know. He went too far. You can't do that, do unless you're giving up names. Okay, you can't do it because now now. You got everyone eft up Steve Up on the range looking at him after this story breaks going. Is it me? Is it me I-. Bubbas always been controversial. He's he's not. He's not well like I I. Understand I. Don't have you know I don't have. Exact sources, but I've heard I've heard from. I'm only about one guy removed from knowing. These guys are him and I've heard that he's just not a well like as I've heard some other geyser. Phil was not not is not particularly well liked by the players apparently, but loved by the fans right loved by the fence and Bubba probably falls into that category. Right that this guy comes up and just absolutely breaks all the rules about you know where you're supposed to hit it off the tee, and just says no, no over those trees and rip it as and big fades and big hooks and stuff, so he's A. He's a great great athlete and he's a great addition. But. I. I think it would have been okay to say you know there's certain guys I love playing with. Right I love. You talked about he. He'd like playing with Phil. So that goes against same, but and Tiger and he likes you know Steve Stricker. He brings up Freddie couples. All these guys are Super Nice. You would have just stopped there. That would have been fine, but to go on and say and also if you play with guys, these guys it's. A two yard penalty. Man You know he's not. He's not endearing himself to the other players. If there's the understatement of that whole article. That was dummy dummy there dummy dummy Baba. Would you think you and I are on the same team? We're in the same league. And I go. You know there's a bunch of guys here. I wish they weren't around. You know first of all you should be you. Shouldn't you know? All these athletes Steve the high performance stuff at playing at the highest level. Hockey Baseball Football Golf. You know they. They should be kissing the ground. They walk on for for the life they have. With the with the money. And the and the admiration and Recognition they get in the celebrity, you know, and if I'm the commissioner, those leaks right I'm stepping into going. Hey, hey, knock it off with. Talking down about our our players who are in the league, we got one of the best leagues in the world. Right know the PGA Hands Down Right? There's nothing better than that. So. there's some guys just as a guy you now your weekend hacker like the rest of us like there must be guys that you feel like you score better with than other guys and I don't know if I can necessarily. Chock that up to anything in particular, but there are guys. I enjoy their company more. They're more supportive. They're kind of your cheerleader. The more positive the way they play their own game and out Club chuckers that can sometimes disrupt you. I I absolutely think that two strokes is a pretty reasonable thing. To think I don't know that I would say it for all the reasons you talked about, but. I. Definitely believe that there's some guys that for medley of various reasons can hurt your game. Right. It's like it hockey Steve. Talked to any player? And they're going to tell you who they like as a ref, and who they you know and who they don't. Okay off the record, right? But you don't see any of these guys going into the press gone I. Don't like there's. Like three of these guys, right? The commission is gonNA. Come for shot ear whole. Okay, knock it off. I. Would I? Would if I'm if I'm the Commissioner of the PGA I'd I'd make a phone. Call the BUBBA going really. Really well, ironically enough I bet you bubba Watson is that to a lot of players on the tour. Oh my God. I'm paired with Baba. Because if you actually go on Youtube, made your Internet homework and do a search for Bubba Watson's. Moments? There's a three minute video of Baba being upset with his playing partner. In fact I do know that Mu- that he's not well liked. I do, and I'm not telling anyone. They told no, and it's unfortunate because he seems a great sense of humor. You seem with some of his PGA. Powell's doing music videos. He's very funny can be very engaging, but he's got a prickly side. It's like Brooks kept the other day when they might up the guys right? They? They make up a bunch of players. It came out of that exhibition where they miked up. Just Thompson a few other guys as commentators for that. Exhibition match filled Tiger and the two quarterbacks. A Tom Brady and Peyton manning right, and they said okay. We're GONNA. Make up players because the tours back they they just finished their second tournament over the last two weeks and they they might the guys up right and some guys that are saying. I I don't like it. Some were saying I'll be fine with it. You'RE GONNA. Make me up I don't care you know you're not gonNA get much. You might get you know. Brooks kept comes forward and. Buries the idea in a press conference. Okay, he is got to post round and they ask them about it, and he just took it down. Like this is, it's the dumbest idea I've ever seen. That's not a stretch for what he said. You got someone there. Already with a boom might follow me around other where the things in my face all the time. It's stupid. Why are they doing it right well, you know you're you're just trying to make the sport. More attractive all the time when you're trying to get the fans inside the ropes. Speak and this guy absolutely torched it, you know. If the Parents told you. If you don't have anything nice to say. Don't fuck sing. It kept. Who is one of those guys where you know. I watched him and I admired his game. And I'm like thinking to myself. Man, see quiet. Nothing he's not giving you anything but I. I always had this idea of like well. You know I bet you get back to the clubhouse or you know having a pitcher a beer after the round and some nachos with the Fellas I. Bet you that's a guy. I bet she loves his hair down. I bet she's a good guy. No no everything. I hear just like you talked about. He may be quiet. But, at least he's a jerk. Yup. Well, they talk like they talk like. You know to run the PGA Steve All they. WanNa, do is improve it. That's all they WANNA. Do right any any league. The NFL, they're talking about adjusting gains additional playoff game additional regular season games stuff like that. It's all it's all about the fans right. They're trying to make and month end money I guess, but all the it's all for the greater good of the sport. Okay, that's what we're. It may work it. May Not you know it's like it's like the what was the tail? They had on the puck they tried you know. Know whatever they call it. You know when they tried that.

Powell, give me a break I'm trying to I'm trying to improve the experience. Improve the experience for for for fans. And then it got used stepping up at the first opportunity. You had to support it.

Don't WanNa play with these guys and I only WanNa play with these guys. Mike thing is fucking stupid. You know you know what I'm saying Steve I. Know What you're saying I. Know what you're saying, but hopefully the podcast experience was good for people. We hope you have a great day and he finds today's. We wrap things up. What am I gonNA do today. Oil. I got Stevie I I really honestly okay. This may be the last time you hear about it. Okay. I'm just finishing up some painting. Really Wow. I just picturing like one of the blue man group or something like that at this stage of the game just. Totally covered in paint. I, I went to a live show. The Blue Man Group in Vegas Yeah. It was. It was really good, the first four or five things then it was dumb, right? It was like a bunch of guys just trying to do pranks at a party.

Recess it so last night at two thirty in the morning I went down there to tap some of these nails in and the first one I matched the all up.

Bubba Wallace, Drawing A Blank, MLB's return, Stories to Start Your Morning

"In An emotional day at Talladega speedway, yesterday's the world watched to see how NASCAR would respond to recent events, and we will get to all of that in a second, but I I say good morning to everyone and welcome to first things first general Nick Right Kevin Wild resort is with us, and we have a lot to get to on top of our top story coming up this morning. Dacca Prescott's bold statement to the League we'll discuss what's in store for the cowboys coming up. Should we be worried about playoff Lamar and will there now be a baseball season Tom Producers going to stop by to talk about that, but we will start with our top story this morning. bubba Wallace Emotional Day on the track yesterday, his number, forty three car, being pushed to the front of the starting line before the race, all thirty nine of the other NASCAR drivers and their crews, showing their support for Bubba Wallis, this just one day after a new, Swiss found his garage stall down in Lincoln Alabama and while bubble Wallis would not go on to win at Talladega his smile, his morale, his message after the race was a win in and of itself. Take listen. It's been. It's been hell really would sale. It's just been hectic carrying his weight and carrying this burden, I wouldn't really say burden either I'm proud to stand where I'm at and carry. A new face the first time for here from Atlanta. Cool. Sports changing. The deal that happened yesterday. Mass, but I wanted to show whoever was. You're not gonNA take away my smile. Bruce. I loved absolutely everything. I saw yesterday from the way. The driver supported Bubba Wallace to the way Nascar responded to Wallace what he said there at the end. What was your reaction to everything that took place yesterday into what Bubba along Santa say. Whereas you, said Jim, it was very emotional. It was great to see. There's nothing you like about it. They're very few moments in sports that I can recall sees something like that especially in a racial context, so it was great to see on my radio show the couple yesterday we had bill lester on as a guest who was an African American driver in Nascar. He was the first one I black driver to win a grand Ami. He retired in two thousand seven and. And he told us that the problem when he raised even thirteen twenty years ago, thirteen years ago when he retired was not the drivers or the pit crews for the most part, but it was just certain segments of the fan base that were still tied to the racism, and insisted on acting out in that way, and that's kind of what you saw yesterday i. I think it was very important for the fans of Nascar to see a Richard Petty Akao Bush, and all of the drivers and teams supporting Bubba awhile is like this because these fans, these fans Bush and petty and other drivers are their idols, and so the they're heroes, supporting bubble, Wallace and racial equality. The way they did was great. Many of those drivers presumably. Presumably some of them at least grew up in the same culture that you know love the confederate flag and things like that and to see that they're willing to change and able to change I think that could go a long way because we know how much you know, people look up to their sports heroes so I thought that was great. One slight negative perhaps. Is that you wonder was the person that put the news in bubble. Wallace's garage was the parade because it was a limited number of people that could even get there to the garage, so that's something I. Guess We'll find out hopefully in the investigation, but. That just something you wonder about but overall I. Think it was a great great day in display. A well said Chris I thought we were watching a historic moment in American history in American sports, and when I was my first job in sports I worked for the espy awards with. More man and my job was to compile A. Opening segments called images of the year and certain images you would, of course you'd have people raising the trophy at the end of the montage. And then you had important images like this, and when I was watching this I, said I looked at it and I said this has echoes of peewee recent Jackie Robinson. Just, felt like a moment that transcended sports and would be written in American history books, Knicks. I thought I thought it was tremendously powerful in. Very well done by the Fox team the opening. Procession was excellent and the end with Bubbas speech and talking to the fans I thought it was just phenomenal. I WANNA. GIVE NASCAR credit in the front end. Nascar in the sport as very well put wilds and BROUSSARD NASCAR and the drivers, and the sport is a whole rose to the occasion yesterday now as my friend. Bomani Jones has been saying the last month. It's important to not give people too much credit before it's due premature credit, and if folks are watching this and been watching the news NASCAR over the last week and say it took too damn long to ban the confederate flag, and it shouldn't have taken your one black driver on the top circuit to push the issue the issue, those people I would say you're absolutely right. It was a decade or two decades. But. They finally got here. And when they got here, they were immediately confronted with something of a crisis, their fans, some of them did not take the confederate flag banning lying down the flew of plane, and they had a little mini confederate flag rally outside of Talladega, this weekend and then. Ostensibly, someone within the sport took ten steps further by placing that noose and Bubbas stall so then Nascar really was at a crossroads. Do we want to confront this head on or do? We want to pay lip service to it and hope it goes away to not further alienate those fans that would love to be out there. Waving the confederate flag and they took the correct fork in the road, and this is why being inclusive, being embracing diversity. Just rejecting hate is not only the right thing to do Jenna, but it's good for business. Did you see the folks that bubble was talking to? At the end a lot of those people? He said First Time Nascar of not participants view people going. The my goodness. You had people like me. Let's an all watch the Daytona five hundred dollar. Check out the ends of a few races a year. Totally honest. That was the first time in my life that I was enthralled beginning to end with a NASCAR race, that wasn't the Daytona, five hundred and at the I'm like Whoa. There's this new NASCAR overtime thing turns out. It's been around for a couple of years, but I didn't know it was a great finish there was. A little almost poetic ending while Bubba couldn't win because he ran out of Gas Ryan La- joy puts coriolis important. Pardon me. Him into pit road, so he can finish the race and Bubbas good friend. Ryan, Blaney wins the race. It's just you all of a sudden. You're going to lose some fans who value hate more than they love the sport, but you might gain an entirely different group of fans that either didn't feel welcome to the sport before or folks such as myself. That said well I'm GonNa Watch because I want to root for Bob and I want to see how how he's embraced by his. His fellow competitors, and then I'm watching the race, and I'm like this damn entertaining, and so it's the right thing to do morally. It's the right thing to do business wise and while Bubba didn't ask for this responsibility, he does seem like he's up to the challenge and up to the moment, so I thought in the midst of an awful situation Jinnah Nascar really turned it around into what could be a positive launching point for somewhere? Maybe they should have been years and years ago. You're so right, NICK! If you just look at what we all watch yesterday, the sport under the spotlight new fans Prasada as nick pointed out and then. That a lot of us didn't know before all walking in the beginning drivers that we finally got to see the true essence of who they are. When you look at Nascar as a whole feel like took a step forward yesterday. Were definitely as Nick said you know it might be. Some people feel too late and it is but look better late than never as we always say, and this was definitely a step forward. They did change the minds of a lot of fans, and Knicks put it well when he said fans who may have not have felt welcomed us. I've never even thought about really. Look, get looking into NASCAR and getting into it. But as he said I mean when you see something like this. Creates an interest in the sport, and then you find out the sport, itself is actually enjoyable, and so I think they will get a new fabric base I WANNA shout out bubble wireless, too because I thought. He did a great job of handling the situation really from the beginning, but yesterday in particular, because it is tough to be singled out even when it's a positive thing like it was yesterday because you don't want to feel. Feel like a charity case you know. Oh everybody's. You know. Come into me. Poor Bubba you don't. WanNa feel like that. And I thought he did a great job of handling it with dignity and I thought his comments were strong. Obviously, he raced well. You know in the midst of all the emotion so Kudos to bubble wireless because it's not I've been in situations where you're the only black person in a group of whites. You. Don't WanNA. Be singled out is the Black Knight you WANNA. Be a person in a man, and so it can be tough, but he handled it well. I I agree the emotional weight of that procession, and then to sit in the car for five hours at two hundred miles an hour in finished in the top atop twenty finish I think. Did a fantastic job and just to echo your points. Nick totally agree. My my sons and I sat down. We watch the beginning of the race. We left. We listened to it on serious. We came back. We listen to Sirius caught the end of the race, so I I think there's an opportunity for NASCAR TO GAIN A. New Fan base. And at listen, there are certain symbols in America. That everyone knows what they mean. And whether it's you know you kind of want to go through the scale of aggressiveness, if you will the confederate flag or news or at times, I guess a burning cross. They all mean the same thing. You're not welcome. This is for a certain group of people either this town this pool this sport whatever it is and one shoot tear down that you're not welcome. Sign what you might find. Find Out. Is there were some folks waiting to come in that just assumed they weren't welcome. And that's what I think you saw yesterday with I thought the most beautiful image was the end of the race where Bubbas interviewing and what you're saying and this type of stuff I apologize eight. It's a good way makes me emotional because what you're seeing is the best of America in theory can be. Folks who didn't know they had anything in common the guy wearing the Jimmy Johnson t-shirt. The White Fella next to the Black Guy, wearing the black lives matter shirt who may be outside of the context of sports wouldn't think they have much in common, but you know what we both love racing, and now that you have tear it away. One of those signs that you're not welcome. Those folks may become together and only way you combat racism or bigotry or ignorance in this country. Country is getting people to know each other. It's why such less of an issue in general in major metropolitan cities that in world communities because people have to get to know each other. They have to work together, and they realize we're not that different, and so I just I thought it was beautiful at the end and again. I'm not trying to be over the dominant. I'm trying to be sappy and I'm not trying to give NASCAR too much credit, but that was important. and. I I thought it was great and I just I thought the end of that Dud. Say during a really tough time in this country. The best of what we can be when we want to be and I just hope for more than moving forward. And make you said it's the best of America. It's the best of humanity really as bubble Wallace, said yesterday does sport is changing I? Think we all saw a big part of that yesterday afternoon. All Right? We are going to switch gears now. Talk some football and Democrat Scott's latest statement. That's next. This is I think i. Took? A lifestyle should be easy, right? Eat veggies drink green smoothies exercise. Get your heart rate up and do yoga. Bring your heart rate back down. Well, maybe not so easy, but there is something that helps improve everything, and you can literally do it with your eyes closed.

Tonight on F s one relive that thrilling return of John Cena when he battled triple h massive square garden. Do Not Miss Two thousand eight royal rumble. Tonight at seven, eastern, only on F, s long. Back here with Super Bowl. Champ Greg Jennings were drawing a blank. If you didn't know Dak Prescott Cowboy Exhibit, A. Dak celebrated, signing is exclusive franchise tag yesterday. Like this nick, a picture says a thousand words, but for timing purposes. We're looking for about thirty here. DAX fashion choice is blank. Gordon Goshi Wedding Gina Lasalle. We need folks to somewhere fall on the scale between you've got Dak Prescott negotiating style, which is the wearing cowboy literally cowboy of errol signing the franchise is dagger early when he wants to become the highest paid quarterback ever, and then on the the of Jamal Adams negotiating style, which is already saying goodbye, the teammates and good luck, even though he's. He's still on the roster somewhere. In the Middle Deck Jerry Jones sees when he sees this. A DACTYL WANNA leave tax can assign long-term deck literally wants to be a cowboy. He sees the value in being a cowboy. This this picture right here cost half a million bucks. Greg per year over two million total of the courts of his contract. It's poor negotiating Greg Jennings. I disagree I. Think is superb. I think sometimes when you want something you got to let. People know that you wanted in other ways that you may have not. tried in this photo I I thought it was a very fitting. He's obviously in on America's team. He's the head. He's the face. He's the Alpha Male, so yeah, play that role. Give them what they want. And hopefully his hopes is that he gets what he wants. It may backfire. It may not. I thought was medically inspiring. The other day we saw Tom Brady come out with the buccaneers. We didn't see any pirate stuff. We saw no eyepatches. We saw no wooden legs. We saw no hooks so I think Jack embracing the cowboys theme is just smart, overall looks like home, and they can put on an eye patch when that been great, or they got a hook I don't know how many interceptions on this, but it works medically inspiring. been better to see threes. ADS member a week ago when MVP. quarterback Lamar Jackson said. The titans quote caught us by surprise in the AFC division around loss while Lamar's head coach John. Harbaugh, disagree respectfully sang quote I. Don't think we took them lightly personally. I mean. What was the guy going to say? Nick hard disagreeing with Lamar's take on their playoff losses blank. Yeah journey you nailed it. It's predictable. No coach wants anyone to say that. Essentially, the team was not prepared particularly for a playoff game but I understand why for Lamar. This is what you want. And maybe it's true what he wants to believe. Because the other alternative is a guy who was very good as a rookie, and then utterly sensational in your to had the two worst games of his career in the two biggest games of his career is to playoff game so instead of going down the mental path Aub! With me in the postseason, which I wouldn't blame him for not wanting to engage in that thought process, he wants listen. We weren't ready. We'll be ready next year and then we'll see so I think it was a predictable answer, but harbaugh not wanting to predictable answer back. It was a mandatory answer to rebuttal. Those comments by your your star quarterback again the face of your franchise, the leader within that locker room, even being so young, but you hit on the head I think for Lamar Jackson Bat was one of his reality because of his lack of productivity in that game from start to finish. His ability to be so electric and so impactful from week to week game in and game out all regular season, and to come up and show up and not perform the way that he would have wanted to win the way his team ultimately lead him to to get them the win. you get comments like that from a quarterback. Yeah I thought this was absolutely one hundred percent invalid, so it's the word we if one person disagrees with the we then. It doesn't work if I say like a Gregg and I both have a good background to our set. We have good backgrounds in Greg like I've got a good background, but you're back with holes in it and it's. It's just totally playing me to do something. Then we doesn't work. What I say doesn't matter anymore. It's not we so whatever Lamar said is correct. It's not a and my background is. Working work on it after the show got a shaky background well iffy. Talks rookies now NFL. Dot Com released the rankings for the top three rookie quarterbacks coming in a number one joe borough coming in at to. Justin Herbert which puts to a ton of a low down at number three as the least productive of the three rookies, this coming season important to know this was based on Herbert. Most likely starting before to does nick I know to is your guy so the chances he's the least productive of the top three rookie. QUARTERBACK's are blank. Just so listen if you watch this show a lot, there are certain things you just know to be true. One of them is wild has a terrible background I'm glad he finally admitted another is. All people be lying. You thought I thought I forgot about that. We're bringing that one back. It's been a few weeks since we talked about will be the last and most important one aside for my commitment to take integrity is what I'm not prone to. I am not prone type personally, so it pains me to say this because it's going to sound hyperbolic. The chances to is the least productive rookie. QUARTERBACK is zero point zero percent. Absolutely no chance wha so ever. Just didn't Herbert. I don't care how many weapons he has. I don't care. One of his weapons is a literal lightsaber. It's not gonNA matter to what's on my Lola is going to be better and more productive than Herbert. I think he will also be better than Joe Burrow. Because of that affirmation, commitment to take integrity I can't guarantee that, but I can guarantee you one hundred percent certainty. He's more productive than Justin Herbert Greg Jennings. I'm which you there I say it's no chance that he's not more productive than one of these quarterbacks now for borough is going to be challenging because we expect him to start out the gate with no questions, asked there, but it two gets on the field. He is a flat out. Be More productive than Justin. Herman and I'm not knocking doesn't hurt, but. But I just believe and the ability and the mental approach of the game in the poise of to a tunnel via lower and I think he's a perfect fit with the Miami Dolphins. Obviously, he has a guy in front of them Ryan Fitzpatrick. That's GonNa do his thing. If anything happens, he gets in I. Think he's GonNa be special for a long time. Okay, so then Nick Right says. This just happened on the show. I'm not prone to hyperbole twenty seconds later. He says I don't care if Justin Herbert has literal lightning bolts that he's throwing out there. I'm not growing hyperbole. The guy might have real lightning both. Doesn't matter. I think there's a totally fair statement. We put up the Dolphins schedule their hubs. What are we got? We got those to La Games back. Tobacco La Games. That's when he should start so I think it's a fair statement week one of course, a friendly reminder, Bill Belt Tickets, twelve and against rookie quarterback at home. He shouldn't start week one and he's not certain week one just let them hang out until eighteen have to take that long road trip to Miami Levin. Give some wins there, and then it gets much easier to buy there. You've got the terrible jets back to back. I think this is a fair statement. No. It's a good point and again it's because they have. Starting before starts anyone that hurry, Greg Jennings. We spent his father's Day. Way I did get into some gym time emitting quotes by Greg Jennings now. I just got start lifting some real wait. You said it, not me Greg, but that's good. Hey, nick! Greg's father's Day workout was blank. Yeah! We'll Jenner. You alluded to it because you said just like you did greg. I don't say this lightly at all, and I hope we can remain friends after this, but you're now bordering on Jinnah. Territory and nobody wants to order on Jennifer territory. The I mean the unnecessarily. INSTAGRAM holiday less clothes than necessary workout like come on man. We all know you're training for this Mr Olympia add. We're all so proud of you. Your body looks so good. Always, Greg Jennings coming back to play, is it? A comeback tore all my God me enough. It's enough Saturday is. Your competition can't get here fast enough wild on. NUFF enough lies Greg. It's all lies well look! We keep on calling it Mr Olympia I. Don't think it's Mr Olympia. Great. You have to clarify that there is a lot of Greg Jennings comeback. Talk just for the record nineteen receptions, two hundred eight yards, one TV and sixteen games. There's a lot in the comments. Everyone's like comeback. Season Greg Jennings. Just want to put it out there. After Saturday maybe put your focus on the season Gregg. Well. Let me address this so the the workout. This is just maintenance for the week. I gotta I gotTa stay. Palm gotTa make sure. I'm I'm in the position to where I can compete and compete successfully. Number two. Other! Don't be jealous man. This is just what you do when you trade, and you enjoy it and you embrace where you are in life. This is where I'm at Man and as far as the. Lifting more weight. trust me. There's a lot of individuals within that this industry that lifted a ton more weight than what you see right there. Greg you just you just curled four. Times. On the Graham five times a day. I'm starting legitimate. Because I. Know this year. This got a your area those. Dizzy, you, GINA! The only ones every time I've log on. It's like Jesus man. I sold these people now I got to see him. Too much man! Let me let me add in there. Let me add in there, too. So you know I'm not one to show my skin like that, but my trainer was like it's mandatory for you to have a tank top one this week Greg. Think release you're wearing. Its exile aren't even always get to that. Talk some baseball next first things first. Welcome back, brace yourself for this guys. I think we're GONNA have baseball this season after the VP rejected, the owners latest offer, the owners voted to proceed with the terms of their March, twenty sixth agreement, which means a sixty game season starting around July. Twenty four MLB deadline of five PM Eastern today, asking of players will be able to report to camp by July first and asking players to agree on health and safety. Safety Protocol, so who better to break all of this down? The Fox MLB analysts Tom Verduci Tom Good Morning. Thanks for being here. We're GONNA start with a simple question. We asked you before writing the commercial break before we come on here, you know. Are we GONNA Baseball? You said it was painful getting here, but we're almost there a one hundred percent. We're GONNA. Have Baseball. Tell me it's one hundred percent, please. It's super close to it because they are very close on the medical protocols that as you mentioned something to agree on by five PM today. As far as players getting into camp by July first. You know there's really not a reason why that can't happen, so yes, it looks like we have a baseball season. We don't have an agreement. We have a season. Tom Before we get to what this season's. Sorry Wild? No, let me let me ask this before we get to what this season's actually. GonNa look like Tom. I have a question for you about how we got here. Which is eight? The owners offered sixty games. The players countered with seventy and when that happened I said okay. They're going to come to an agreement. Not a force were implementing season. The owners are going to counter with sixty five sixty six games. Get the expanded postseason that they wanted. I think a lot of wanted and we'll get there. Why didn't in your opinion? The owners counter and why dated have to come down to were imposing the season. Well, I think it was just too much. Distrust on both sides, which is Kinda strange. You think back in March. When they had this agreement that allowed the commissioner to implement season, they got together pretty quickly. That was only about two weeks after the pandemic shutdown spring training. Things got really worse once they started. Talking about. Brass tacks during last of months. And yes, the players were willing to give up their right to go to a grievance procedure for a seventy games schedule, but they didn't want to give it up for a sixty game schedule, and the owners are saying we lose money. Every time we play game at an empty ballpark. We're willing to go to sixty games. We don't want to go to seven games and they just didn't trust each other to get somewhere in the middle. So in fact, the players now are actually leaving money on the table to retain the right go to a grievance. Probably about two hundred fifty million dollars, according to the previous proposal from the owners, and in this case you're talking about thirty three million dollars to players that would have been forgiven from advanced salaries and another twenty five to fifty, million or so post-season money. They're saying we're gonNA forego that, because we want to retain the right to take this thing to a grievance. They'll have forty five days from now to file, but that process takes years so again I get back to that word mistrust. They really haven't trusted. The owners have got to this point in quote unquote. Good faith now who knows how that grievance turns out it's. Putting your fate in the hands of a jury, but they it was super important to the players to retain that right. Tom Just to move a to on the field. When I was fourteen, I had a terrible terrible season I just. WanNa huge slump and I saw Derek thought I was terrible at baseball and I saw Derek. JETER had that famous slump and I thought you know what maybe I wasn't bad at baseball. Maybe I was just on a year long slump, so the spinning forward with this truncated season. Are Any players going to be? Do you see being super affected by just the short season, or if you get off to a slow start you? You're not able to catch up and the all-star splits and things like that. Yeah, that's a great point. Because a slow start now is basically your season right and I. Think it's according to how Clare's and keeping in shape and training baseball wise in terms of how quickly they can get off to good starts. That's a great unknown in this. Because you can't afford a slow start here I think. I'll tell you one group of players that really to me helps. Veteran pitchers because they've been able to rest kind of regather. They weren't putting miles on the pitching dominance over the last four months, and they can get to the most important months of a year. August and September relatively fresh so I think for them. It's a little bit of a break. or You're absolutely right. How people come out of this four month? Break without plank headed of baseball. We really don't know and I don't WanNa say benefits hitters I. Don't want to say it benefits pitchers. It's just really a great unknown. Could, you throw I mean look I love the answer of the veteran pitchers. Could you throw a couple teams out there? who would benefit from a truncated season like this? Are there teams that are mostly veteran that you look at and say they should be fine. They'll know how to handle something like this. Good question, janitors two teams that jumped out at me. Number one is the Washington nationals. You know Strasbourg Sherzer especially. In there as well rates starting pitching, but remember they won the world series last year. It was a great they were wildcard team had to go through every level. That's full months of pitching that seven months of the season. There's a reason why we haven't seen team to repeat lower than any time in the world series era, because the playoffs are grind there much longer now the nationals again they've been sort of refreshed. They don't have the miles on their arms and the first of the season. They want him starting. Starting pitching last year they could do it again. The other team going to pick for a very different reason. Tampa Bay rays, because pitchers aren't stretched out. It's going to be even more about bullpens and pitching changes and to me. There's no team in baseball that has better stuff across the board, one hundred thirteen pitching staff, or in this case it might be one through fifteen then the Tampa Bay rays they can just flat out dominate with one guy after another pure stuff. This short season plays right into their hands. So Tom I. Appreciate you bringing up a couple teams outside of what I would call the big three. This year. We have had a regular season a typical season. I should say I think tell me disagreeing Yankees Astros dodgers those three I. Think most people would take them burst the field versus the other twenty seven teams right now. I just looked right before you came on Fox bed has yankees dodgers astros as the three overwhelming favourite still compared to the rest of the field. Do you feel their advantage has been muted a bit or those three teams, clearly a cut above everyone else, even the nationals and raise notwithstanding. Unless paper Yes that would give those teams in edges terms of talent level, but here's the deal shorter, the season, the smaller the sample size. The advantage goes away in other words, the team with the best death they can show that depth over one hundred sixty two games that will went out as buck. showalter likes to say there are no Cinderella's over one hundred two games. You know what over sixty games Cinderella shows up because attainment that deft and an abundance of talent that doesn't show over two months, so I think this advantages, those teams that you're talking about especially the case for dodgers, I mean they give a boatload a young players mookie Betts for one year, and now they're renting him for two months so to me the big teams yeah, they're super talented, but their advantage has been. I don't want to say eliminated, but it's certainly been diminished. Tom Some of my favorite baseball moments full or Owen to crowd gets on. Their fee starts chanting. You just know a strikeout is coming. That's all gone now. Fan Lewis Baseball. How do you think that's going to affect the pace of play or the actual action on the field? I think it's going to have a Lima effect on players themselves they're going to be. There's going to be a break in period here. Players will tell you stories when they played. Say in a Class A Florida, state league or extended Spring Training Games on a backfield at ten am. Where there's nobody there, there's not nearly the kind of energy. A player brings his craft as well. There's a full crowd just cheering as you said on the edge of their seat on certain council situations that is going to be a big adjustment for major league players. They haven't been a nut scenario for very long time so. You know you have to look at that. On an individual basis, some pitchers who rely on an Komo. Marcus Stroman New York mets I think that's going to be a big adjustment for those kind of guys, so that's another great unknown. In this I think the broadcast are going to look different so even as us as viewers watching games or broadcasters. It's a great unknown as to how this thing plays out. There Tom There's obviously no winners in this pandemic, but I do wonder if all things considered one team that came out. All right is Houston. I feel like there was so much of a narrative going into this season about the scandal, and about the incredibly hostile crowds. They were GONNA face eighty-one times this season now the story is their stories totally on the back burner and will know hostile crowds. How much! I wonder if there's a little. Residue bitterness for around Wrestle League, which is like these guys were cheating and now somehow they're not even going to have to pay their full penalty. Probably, the feeling is mostly with fans and other ballparks outside of Houston people kind of been lying in wait. Listen I was at Spring Training Games and Florida and I'm talking about Jupiter Florida on like senior day at a mid week game with two thousand people in the stands, and they're just killing the astros and I wondered what is like when they go to Oakland when they go to Texas. When they go to New York, they were put prepared to hear it all year long, and you're right first of all very few of anybody in the stands, but the whole emotion from the scandal I, think has dissipated. So I do think this giving them something of a break in the public response the Astros. Schedule is going to look like. This team was scheduled to play in Yankee Stadium late in the year. I think the schedule is going to be redone. I think it's going to be heavy in terms of. Division Games and maybe playing the division like division and the other leagues, so you might not see the Astros. Play the Yankees at all. So. Yes, there's a break here for the Houston Astros. I think they're very thankful for it and honestly guys for me. I DIDN'T WANNA. See that because I thought fans with really get over the top for the wrestling their displeasure about doing them. That's part of baseball tradition but I was worried that it might get out of hand because people were so emotional about it. Take a page out of the NBA, playbook try to pump in crowd noise pump in the booming Tom Reducing. We're so close to baseball. Thank you as always for stopping. By much-appreciated. We gotta take concern talk some NBA. Draymond Greens got a message for all of his doubters. Nick right included next personally I. Oh, no I've always supported during. This weekend we got to NASCAR Cup. Series races live from Pocono raceway I on Saturday catch the action three thirty eastern on Fox than Sunday four. They're back at it again on F, s one both races are also available on the Fox sports at Gentlemen, time for stories to start your morning starting with some. Sitting out. Wizards Forward Dobbins four TANS will ox out the NBA restart due to health and injury concerns ahead of free agency Blazers Forward Trevor Rees also sitting out. For him, it's because of a commitment to visitation rights with his son. Nick obviously completely different reasons, but nevertheless could we see more players for whatever the reasons often out of the restart? I think these are both very unique cases. Areso I think no matter his team, no matter situation he'd be sitting out and totally understandable in a bit of a custody battle would appear this month and be with his son, so he's not GonNa play, and I totally respect that decision. Birds Don's is almost the perfect goldilocks zone for a guy who makes sense for him. He's never gotten a big deal. He's awaiting a huge contract potentially this. This summer and he's on one of the two worst teams to even be invited probably one of the two teams that shouldn't have been invited, so it doesn't make sense. I don't know. Wildest for towns is doing this. If for example you'd been traded to a contender at the deadline is a lot of people thought would, but he wasn't and so I. Don't begrudge that I don't begrudge him this decision for an awful wizard team anyway. Yeah Bobby Mark said he's forfeiting about six hundred grand for his new contract as looking forward to start I. Think it's more akin to like star sitting out a pro bowl enough had colic college bowl game that they don't really care about. What was scares me is when a guy like Lou. Williams says he's fifty fifth. And not just because I picked the clippers. But if you start seeing, let's say. Twenty clippers. Lou Williams caliber right. Or Two on notch below stars Sater's Tobias Harris Brook Lopez a Lou Williams guys like that that starts sitting out. I'm not predicting that, but if that's the case in this season will be seriously compromised, and that's when people start looking at astro. You have guys like. Oh! We're so word. Kid. were. The Knicks received approval from the Lakers to talk to Jason. Kidd. Head coach vacancy. I feel like this is going to be a wide coachee nick casted. Fit between the Knicks and Jason Kidd. Is definitely become a wide net I'm I don't necessarily like kids. There I like it as a coach. I thought he was good in Brooklyn and in in Milwaukee three of his four years they had a winning or a five hundred record, but I like him better with a veteran squad or a younger squad. That's on the cusp like I could see him in Philly I think that'd be a good fit of Brett Brown is jettison the, but I don't know so much about New York Eric totally rebuilt. It's part of it's this like John is rumors if you Jason Kidd would Janas. Come along when he got fired from Milwaukee Janas was going to call his agent and say like. What can I do but look? the Knicks also interviewed eleven people when they hired David fizzed a who they should have captives excellent coach so i. don't know how this ends up but I. Don't know if kid is the answer either nick. You. Guys are totally bearing the lead. The Lakers are leading. The Knicks interview their own head coach. I Kid I kid Frank Vogel. Obviously he's that. Go to the team. It's not the Jason. Kidd's actually things behind the scenes. This is of course all about honest. This is the knicks once again. Convincing themselves. If we hire this GM from CAA. Coach if we do this, we're going to get that superstar. It's the owner. Jason auditioning to be the owner, it ain't going to help them, so I don't think it really matters for the Knicks. Talent like it is Nick Right? Let's not forget about. Warriors Three Time Champ has a message for all his doubters. Looking at you, my friend. Nick Ride trae Ma Sane on instagram quote young. Guys since they all seem to have forgotten, Nick, did you forget? Well I'll be honest. I did forget about this specific game. He's referencing, so I looked this morning. It happened January second twenty sixteen. They were thirty one and two at that point. That's the seventy three win. Warriors now season, obviously ended with monitors car, crying because of what the brand new calling Kevin Durant, but throughout the season he was amazing. Thirty nine percent from three seventh in league MVP, voting the problem is since then he has been the single worst high volume three point shooter. We have in the League, and he seems to have lost step defensively, so yeah, if he gets back to that level wild thing, the warriors can be dangerous again I. Unfortunately don't see that coming for him. Yeah that's specific. Game was nuts. It was twenty, nine, seventeen and fourteen is career averages fourteen, nine, hundred seven. Aren't they just best season superstar? I'm happy with that. We don't need to double everything. We just need a competent dream on and stop taking threes once Claes back. Nick can hate all. He wants I told him months ago. They the warriors would be back with. Everyone's in their role with Steph. Ray Back as the third guy. Wiggins is fourth is right. WHO's the? Body surprised at how good at the number one guy he can't carry it team, but in. GonNa be back to that guy. Watch. Third option. The Andrew. Love. Onto Taku Family Yana says young eighteen year old brother Alex is now going throw signing a three year deal with space you can Murtha, that makes four fro onto Takubo brothers three of them in the NBA I love his family. I got to tell, you can get any more talented. That is incredible three guys in the NBA Orthon, the pros and look. He's six seven. He's only eighteen years old. He's going straight out of high school. He's GONNA learn a lot over in Spain I think he's better off going over there playing with brome in and professional thing going to college where he was like a mid major type route I think you'll end up in the NBA in a few I really do. It was a lost for Depaul but I. Think this is smart. Move over to Spain next. Loss for the poll you are. Pepper always here pumping up Wisconsin. He lived in Wisconsin. Maybe make the kitten offer. He's in your home state terrible. Bull Ryan Rolling over in his Bola. I'm so with Paul. Ryan very upset. Wisconsin offering Alexandra, but I'll tell you what I think's going to happen. Bizarre I. John is if they win the title of Milwaukee if he wins another MVP I think he's going to have the cachet to be like hey milwaukee. You WanNa keep me starting five and two in. Alexandria hostess myself that the Narcisse Four, four good bose inner starting five. I want to see it I'm rooting for. Our to, but I do the keep job. Anyone some iron sharpening iron another day another Mike Tyson training video each one's scarier than the last still amazes me. This guy is fifty three years old. We're sorry. How impressive is this? The follow fifty-three-year-old into ring scares me, but I got admit I'm becoming intrigued I. You know I think mentally. He's probably a better space than he's ever been since early in his championship year. I think he could actually do some damage if he got in the ring. Yeah, I'm going the other way. This is all smart and smart comes. This is all an ad for smart cubs into Little Cup with some. You, know look Tang on the bottom of it or whatever it is crystal light. Water and it just we've been all trick. Can smart cops getting some smart shorts? The hell you wear an iron. Mike, I mean my God what do you like Jeff? Goldblum on. File all. Those our.

Hour 1: Don't Make Em Like That Anymore

"So Garcia if you like me, you love a good stat, but there's one stat. You probably don't know your vehicle's battery charge. That's why advance auto parts has free vehicle, battery, testing and installation with no appointment needed. Battery sorted just seventy ninety nine. They also have curbside pickup on any order. Enter the Code Dan Twenty when you buy online to save twenty percent on your order, adventure auto at advance, auto parts and participating carquest locations see store for details. He sees the Donlevatar show with Stugatz podcastone. In fairness. The NASCAR. It is Alabama. Are Old nooses all over the place that you could just find anywhere and some of them might just end up in a garage by accident. It's not the racism that you intended. In that moment. It's inherited previous racism. I am sorry for all of. All of you taking victory lap today, a weird victory lap, a super odd victory lap. About. Confederate flag has been taken away and the news has been taken away, but there are many many other symbols of southern heritage. You could still have. Without the confederate flag and the news Mike Ryan is demanding an apology from me. he is wearing a Darrell waltrip shirt western union seventeen. The seventeen car I was glad you pointed that out Western auto. Excuse me, not Western Union. That's a fine and Darrell Waltrip. Wall can't wait to find out on twitter. Why this might be problematic. Yeah, so Mike Ryan if you're not familiar with this shows. Putting its money where its mouth is Mike Ryan because he believes. I believe. I try because you believe that NASCAR was trying to the right things before all of this happened with yesterday's news that the average today's news yesterday's news that the F. B. I. Says it's not a hate crime. That it was a poll rope, a garage poll rope fashioned into a news, but it had been there since two thousand nineteen, and you know it being Alabama. Just people kept walking by. Now! BUBBA Wallace says it's straight up news. That mascot says the news that the FBI says the news. I really don't want to get into that discussion I. DO enjoy a couple of things about this. The FBI said it's been there prior to knowing BUBBA. Wallace would occupy that garage and it's a it's a pulled down that there's convincing cartographic evidence that it's been there since two thousand nineteen well before knowing that bubble would be assigned that. That garage and Bubba did not see it. Someone told someone from Nascar Gar brought it to his attention, right? This is one of the more unfortunate things about this entire thing, because now. If you look at his mentions, it's an absolute tire fire, not that it hasn't been for the last few days, but now people are comparing Jesse. SMO- lay, and he's being memed. He wasn't the person Netsov is. He wasn't the person that escalated this. Okay let's backtrack for just a second. On a couple of fronts, because there is some funny here, okay, we backtrack into your apology or we're not backtracking to my apology back. we're no no, there will be no man. Waltrip should. Be, the first Latte may not be the second land now the third lap before the pitstop. Now you're not getting an apology. What you might what you might have to be happy with. And the only thing I feel like I'm willing to possibly give here because I'm not going to give an apology and I do think there's a good amount of funny here. But I do. Want to make an admission instead of an apology. And the admission is this. All of us saw a literal loophole in bubba Wallace Garage. that. We could use to talk about the racism and the history of NASCAR. We found a literal loophole hanging. We didn't know whether it was a news or garage pope, but it was a literal loophole that allowed us all to shame NASCAR for its past, and so what I want to go back and look at is Mike Ryan actually because NASCAR is trying to distant because NASCAR is actively alienating some of its racist customers who have claimed that sport as their own NASCAR has been actively. Moving away from those customers Mike Ryan decided to support Nascar you'll get some new customers by buying hundreds of dollars. Worth of NASCAR GEAR so many. Shirts and blue shirts and hats. So He's trying to support this and what I want to go back and just sort of rewind on this. Okay, because NASCAR is trying to do the right thing and in this incident they self reported. For All of you coming at Bubba, Wallace for the HOAX NASCAR celt deaths are trying to do. The right thing volunteered that they found this. This wasn't a news media creation. This wasn't a news organization. Finding News Nascar volunteered to us. Here's the Chum, the literal loophole where all of you could start talking about how Nascar has been racist NASCAR is the one who uncovered the crime. They did everything right Yep. They volunteer the information I. It doesn't change the fact that thing was sitting there since two thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, one from NASCAR. That's why it's a symbol. That is funny in retrospect. If this stuff can be funny, because first of all, let's just say hypothetically that it wasn't a news at all that it was just garage poll that it was just an accident that nobody ever meant to make it look like a new man. That whole scene on. Monday looks a little silly like through that prism like the idea of. We're all uniting on something that's not actually so that prison through it now, but let's let's say and I again. I don't want to Parse the I. Don't know all right. I know there's a history of racism in that region I know there's a history of racism in that sport I know that there was enough circumstantial evidence there for a whole lot of people to jump to the wrong conclusion, even as Nascar, was doing the right thing, and it also wasn't like. BUBBA Wallace didn't need a show of solidarity from his community in Nascar because he was the face of getting the confederate flag being removed from its tracks I feel like Bubba Watson just when. Mike I'm gonNA keep doing that. Feel like Bubba. Wallace is going to be a microcosm for basically everything that feels like the black experience lately where it's like. Hey, you guys rule with me. This feels good freeing. This is amazing. I've got the support of why people? Oh, no crashed on my face coming after me ten I. AM responsible for this, do anything. PULL UP INTO MY GARAGE NASCAR actually put them in a terrible. Pretty awful I mean decades prior leading up to that, and now to an again, let's not act like there wasn't a confederate flag flying overhead that said defining Nascar Oh and all sorts of things going on. That are going on every race that they have with again. Racists have claimed this sport. It doesn't mean that everyone in this sport is racist doesn't mean that the majority of people in and around this sport are racist, but I'm glad you're saying that because this was a message that was missing on. Monday dan from you directly. Well. The thing that I want to go back and rewind on and. If it's possible, because Stugatz. I'm surprised you haven't already thought of. This was given that NASCAR? Handled everything right here. What's the last time NASCAR had a national moment? Go ahead. A give you the rest of time I'll probably. Junior winning at Daytona. I feel like I feel like. Considering. What happened to my dad got a Nazi like this. I feel like Dale Senior. Dying in the moment that is I feel like go hand in hand, but okay Dale Senior. You guys aren't gear heads like me, so it's fine. That's right. We're not wearing Darrell. WALTRIP seventeen western auto gear the way that you are today, I'm surprised. It's God's has income in with the take already of like if you're NASCAR, all. All of this though you know, it feels super uncomfortable and you got the media talking about your past. All of this was a moment for NASCAR THAT NASCAR has not had. NASCAR is not had sports to itself in a really long time since Tony Stewart did that thing NASCAR has not had yes, maybe Tony Stuart might be the last time we're Tony. Stewart was thought to have you know. Run someone over on purpose. Yes that's probably the last time. How many years ago was that five years ago six years ago longer than that. It feels like forever ago. You right this is. This was NASCAR's biggest moment, and they stepped up and they were trying to do change now I I've seen the like the asinine twitter theory that this is all some sort of setup Selah. And and this is NASCAR creating a story. Why would they create the worst possible types of this story? There was no happy ending is just man. This is bad for the sport. And now it's also bad for the sport all. That's good as a photo op. That now feels different. It's instructive. It really is instructive stugatz on how all how difficult all of this stuff can be even when you're doing the right things like it all of this. This like if there's any thing to sort of be taken from what it is, that's happening around this story which I will again repeat like I, did on Monday is a silly story in the context of what actual damaging racism has been. This is just a silly little symbolic threat that may have not been a threat. That wasn't a threat that the FBI is saying is not a threat or may have been a threat meant for someone else. A, while ago, all just be a misunderstanding, it could. It could be all of that, and it doesn't matter either way even if it's a news place in his garage is a threat. It's small compared to the rest of what America should be talking about round right now, and if it's not, it's. Compared to the rest of what America should be talking about right now. Tony Stewart was back in two thousand fourteen, the number twenty car all right, so that was six years ago. THAT NASCAR NASCAR got its moment. The point being though all of this stuff is going to remain uncomfortable for everybody because it's Dan on comfortable seeing some people taking a victory lap today over this like this proves what exactly that that there's not racism.

Wherever you enjoy your podcasts, billion Chris very excited. There is a baseball season approaching. It is sixty games long. This gives their beloved marlins. A fighting chance because anybody can do anything over Sixty Games Clark Spencer formerly of the Miami Herald. Writes on twitter wild celebration going on in Miami at the moment with the news that the Marlins are either in first place or tied for first with sixty or fewer games remaining for the first time in franchise history. One, they've won two titles, but they have not done it from first place. with a hundred games having been played I. Mean I love it a little sixty games sprint year where every team has a shot including the Marlins, including the mets and Gob. Would it be funny if Derek Jeeter WanNa title as an owner? Best shot ever for someone to hit four hundred right best shot ever in the history of the sport. You gotta think for for someone to put out some odd number. That doesn't make any sense. I'm sure all baseball fans won't respect that record, and if it's if it's hit, it'll have to be with an asterisk. Right? Put It on the pole Guillermo at Lebatardshow of someone hits four hundred as your will. They actually put an asterisk on. People hit four hundred before Dan. I'm not I. I've ever thing that's happened Thank you billy I'm sorry. Ted Williams was the last four zero six well, you really got in there smiling with. Dan. was close from Tony Gwynn. He did not hit four hundred close close to work stoppage year. Is that when he was close I believe the year that they stopped the Games. He was pretty close, I think gwen finished three eight, hundred, eight, hundred, ninety one something like that but bills right. He was close. Tony gwynn anymore. What are you excited about most here Chris I? Know that Mike has I know billy. Well I'll tell you what happened. What happened? Is that Mike realize that agreement they. Know they. Don't make them like Tony. gwynn anymore was just deterred, dropped it into the middle of the conversation, and I tried to segue around it, but I stepped on it, and then slipped on it. Put It on the poll. Do they make them Tony Gwynn and they? Might be right three ninety four by the way for Wayne back in nineteen, ninety, three, ninety four, but he's right. They really don't make them I Tony Gwynn anymore. Guy Who bad you know, three forty every year with five homers many. How many games did they play that season? How many Games did he play? In nineteen, ninety four when he had when he hit three eighty eight. I did not expect to end up in a Tony gwynn conversation. We're here though but I saw with today's conditioning. They just don't make them like Tony Gwynn. Through. gwen batted three ninety four that year. He did so in one hundred ten games, four, hundred, seventy, five at bats. You know who else they don't make them like anymore Kirby Puckett I couldn't see Kirby Puckett in today's game, could you? You're so right. They don't make them square like that squat. You're not sure whether he's Chubby or not. Although it is symbolic, say they don't make them quite like that anymore. I will say you. Guys want to guess who the highest paid player in baseball is going to be this season you. You WanNa gas because it's somebody that has been made in sort of the form of those two ladies and gentlemen Prince Fielder, who has been out of the game since two thousand and sixteen is GonNa. Make more money this season because his his money's not pro rated. It's just guaranteed from before, so he's GonNa. Make twenty four million dollars according to Ken Rosenthal to have an example. That's actually so with us to. The the numbers actually say that there will not be somebody to hit four hundred this season since two thousand, only one player has hit four hundred in the first sixty games of the season that was chipper Jones who had four weight in two thousand eight, but then what I'm most excited about July first before the season even gets going. We get peace and sees. Let's do this. Catches report I also can't wait for. There'd be an all star game. They're still needs to be an all star game with guys that are atop a statistical rankings after thirty days or so right Mike there needs not only does there need to be an all star game? It needs to be played at like nine am on one of those days where they're playing three games in a day because they need to do this so quickly. I think all game should be played at nine am. That would be a great opportunity for baseball If someone hits fifty and sixty. That is the new home run record. Is that fair I mean fifty six. Wait a minute you while throwing your sausage fingers at us, and saying will agree with something that we won't agree with a billy made the face of someone who just chewed on something sour while sticking his face toilet. With Ninety M Games be great for Major League Baseball. What does that even mean? I mean everyone's at home. They get the entire audience that we get to gamble during the show. That's what I'm dog. This is this is absolutely something they need to do. I think they will, and the has already announced that they're going to have some nine am games because you're. You're going to have a really congested TV viewing experience when all these lease come back at times. You're not used to them, see so you're not going to watch and MLS game. It's going up against an NBA game. You're not going to watch an MLB game. If it's going up against the NBA playoff, so yeah might as well own. The nine am time side. The home run equivalent of a fifty home run season in this season will be twenty home runs, so yes, Fifty home runs. Names will be very impressive. Hello this is your apartment.

This is the is I feel so bad for the undertaker because he retired surprise spoiler alert on the final episode of the last ride, and nobody believes them won't because he because we've watched the entire series. Here, yeah, you. You earned that. You've retired several the whole episode. Episodes one through four. Are you retiring and then unretired? believes him. That is correct, but will cain is not retiring. He is headed. To other employment, and so if you want to hear what he has to say about the Bubba Wallace fiasco, have at it on I. Take some of you continue to take a really odd victory lap around. Me and mainstream media, people who continued to point out that NASCAR has a grave, an awful history of racism, but for those taking a victory lap I am willing. To say the following. It I know a lot of you're parsing the details on this and I know we're taking sides on. If it was a news or wasn't a news bubble, Wallace, saying it's a news. It looked like a news. The FBI and its statement said it's a news, but if you want to believe. That it is only a garage Paulie. I am willing to say the following to those of you who insist on a victory lap. May Not have been a noose. This time. I liked the idea, the visual of you laying down being the infield grass and people just taking a victory lap, and you like doing snow angels in the middle of the Talladega track yes, with. Also journalistically I have to bring you back. This is seems to be a consistent theme here. The FBI didn't flatly say it was a new say said that it was fascinating. New poll rope fashioned into us, but Bubba Wallace is saying that the NASCAR. NASCAR and the FBI say it's a straight up news I'm not in that garage also not interested in particularly parsing those details if you want. If you want to say, you don't think it was a news, have added that you don't think that this time. It was the news, but. But here's what doesn't change. Okay. NASCAR brought the information, the bubble, wallace and bubble Wallace was operating under the assumption that it was a noose. I'm trying to say what the FBI said because we're on ESPN radio and we have to say what the I was, the FBI said in a statement and I've repeated the phrase. Several time now is a garage police fashioned into a news. This is the first time you're saying that specific statement. I'm just trying to be fair because you keep saying they're saying. It's a news and that's loaded. The FBI and Nascar this is what I didn't WanNa do it specifically. The thing did not want to do which is get into a parsing of words when it's just irrelevant, all of its irrelevant. It's not the conversation. America's having today it something stinky that happened in the play pen like we use sports all the time to do whatever it is that we want. Want with what happened in sports, the details on this do not change NASCAR's decades of history on this subject and I wanna say in that Mike is just pointing out things that needed to be pointed out. That's all it's dollars and given her recent experience. We should make sure the facts are out there. I wasn't misrepresenting the facts what I didn't want to get. To happen is to end up in the quicksand of this in this in this and this and this and we still don't know what the hell happened with all of that information all of it we can sit here and a thousand of the details and argue about all of them. We still don't know what the hell happened here. We don't know whether somebody in two thousand and nineteen in October made it a news purposely to do a racist thing, or whether it's just an accident, and we can all laugh at this, but I can't laugh at it while parsing the stupidest of the. The details on this I. Don't know if it's a news. You don't know if it's a news. The FBI says it was fashioned into a news statement, but it may have just been a garage pulley. I don't know Bubba. Wallace seems to think it was a news and bubble. Wallace's doing the interview circuit saying that NASCAR in the FBI say it is a quote straight up news. I don't know what the truth is, but the fact is that as you listen to this an object to what it is that I'm saying you're either. Yes, NASCAR are still investigating it by the way and. It is whether it's not. I think it's important to know if it's a news that was left specifically for NASCAR's only black driver, and whether you want to believe, believe the FBI and NASCAR I understand people being suspicious. There's photographic evidence according to an FBI investigation in an ongoing NASCAR investigation that says this was left well before anybody knew NASCAR's only black driver driver would occupy that garage, which is important to say Hello I'm Jeff.

Share your dear sports letter with US call, eight, six, zero, five, zero, six, sixty, one sixty. Or share video or tax using the Hashtag. Dear sports on twitter or instagram. So many times throughout sports, this has been something that has been so the entire that you and I across two decades have been doing sports radio the people listening to this very often the majority of the people listening to this ten to side with management over Labor for a number of different reasons, a chief among them players make a lot of money for playing a game for a living and many. Many people listening to this or unhappy at work and don't make a lot of money, and so I understand why they look at that and say baseball players as one example shouldn't get to complain about whatever the miseries are with working in a game that they consider play. Certainly, they don't want to hear it right now. Well, so, what about this do you want to hear this right now from John Hayman? Five hundred twenty eight players so half the lead. Will, be paid one, hundred, thousand or less by Major League baseball for the rest of the season. I mean. I don't want to hear. Do WanNa hear from Heyman our players, complaining about by the a hundred thousand dollars or less for the sixty game season, so bobby. BAENA IS GONNA. Make more than than a majority of the players in major league. Baseball I, WANNA. Hear from Heyman If players are going to complain about it I mean they're entitled to do it. It's not going to go over well and no I. Don't WanNa hear it. Sixty Games baseball. Yearning paycheck. You make less than one hundred thousand dollars a year. It feels light, but it's paycheck and there's a lot of money to play a game sixty times. You know in a two month period I would love someone to come in here and tell you that you had to do that that not even to play games, just do radio under those conditions never mind play. Play Games never mind the act of going into a pandemic I would love to see your reaction as you don't WanNa hear it whether anyone would be hearing from you on this subject. If all of a sudden there was something negotiated that had you being paid for a season of your work a hundred thousand dollars? I loved also only do sixty shows per year. Yes that would be a Lotta shows with you. I'm doing bonus shows of stupidity I'm losing my voice. I mean come on. I five hundred twenty eight players, forty two percent of the players are going to be paid one hundred thousand dollars or less by major league baseball, and it's funny that the sliding scale of the STU gods is well. We're all making a lot less now, so they should make a lot less to. You will find the place to look at the athlete and say the athletes got it better than I do, but they're working less. Seriously I mean people are Jacob pay cuts at still working the same amount. If not more, these guys are working less your. They signed up for a hundred and sixty one of these data white sixty. I'll put it on the poll. Jim At lebatardshow. Are you surprised that forty two percent of major league baseball players will be earning a hundred thousand dollars or less this season because I'm surprised that that number is as low as it is got, you're trying to be honest terrible. They were fighting. They were fighting I. Know You wanted to stay interesting? You wanted to stay entrenched in your position, but they were like they spent a lot of time fighting so that half of their pay fors can get a hundred thousand dollars, and while it may sound like a lot of money to some of you and I understand that one hundred thousand dollars is not a salary that is small. It's a good salary in America. It is not what Major League baseball players get for what they do for a living climbing to. To the top one percent of the top one percent of what they do in their occupation, but were there better offers along the way meeting proposals for Major League baseball players turned down because major league. Baseball's based the commissioners forcing season upon them. I mean so. Did they turn down more money better offers because they were being greedy and selfish. Now they're stuck making less than a hundred grand. They declined deal for going thirty through thirty three million salary forgiveness. I. Don't know what that means I. Get the full year of service like Major, League Baseball I. Imagine There's some pretty famous names that are making that kind of money that you just said for the insane con contracts that they hand out guys like Aaron Judge that are making peanuts comprehensively that aren't even arbitration eligible, and that's how the major league baseball owners rationalize some of these contracts. Contracts and I get why it is something that we've explored for a long time around here i. do think it's actually shifting Stugotz I. Thank Young Fans are getting smarter about what the jealousies and the resentment. I believe that the generation of people who who rail against this stuff have been doing so for a long time without hearing an alternate viewpoint and I think you've seen. As a sports media has become less conservative right over the last thirty years, you've seen more and more people siding with Labor because they themselves are labor in sort of understanding this stuff, but I believe that most people listening to this here that forty two percent of major league baseball players are making one hundred thousand dollars or less most people listening that are saying. Wait a minute to go into the sickness like to to risk. They're going to go the same way we're doing with the meat packing plants where the. The COVID is rising like to go there. It's not just that they're getting one hundred thousand dollars or less. They're getting it in an unusual time where the risking stuff, and so I think most people listening to this are saying man. They spent two months yelling and screaming at each other, and this is the result. This is your big win for baseball players that half of your league is going to go into the sickness for one hundred thousand dollars or less baseball. The players didn't win here I. Don't think anyone. I. Don't think there are any winners and I. I think this is the winningest day they've had, and now it might get worse if they start getting positive tests all over the place.

Noose Found In Bubba Wallace's Garage

"I take your take on ESPN radio. The ESPN APP Siriusxm Channel Eighty and ESPN news. Heck! If you want to be super fancy, you could just ask your smart speakers ESPN radio. All of those devices get you to us on Jason Fitz and we start the show as we do every single day with the headlines that you need to know, we'll start with a little bit of Golf Pga Championship will go forward at harding park minus fans, so the first major championship to be contested in twenty twenty. The PGA championship will be played at San Francisco's harding park, but we'll be. Be Done without spectators to PJ of America announced the decision Monday after spending months considering other scenarios including moving the tournaments other venues, they decided to stick with the original site for the rescheduled tournament to be played August sixth through the night. The PGA remember have been originally scheduled for May fourteenth through seventeenth was postponed because of the corona virus. So at this point we know it's going to go forward in San Francisco with no fans, speaking of with no fans, allies around the NBA, but some players may decide that it's not worth playing. Including Washington Wizards fours the device Burton's. Burton's who arguably could be in the running for the most improved player candidate for the two thousand nine hundred twenty s is decided to sit out the NBA's restart in Orlando as a preventative measure. He's twenty-seven. He's about to get paid then. He doesn't have to previous ACL injuries so as an organization, the wizards fully supportive of of his decision to stay back from the least twenty two team restart remains determined to sign him in free agency so good move by him to decide that he's going to protect his cash. I have absolutely zero problems with that, and lastly on the. The headlines that you need to know racing icon Richard Petty will attend Monday's Nascar Cup series race at Talladega superspeedway to stand in solidarity, the solidarity with Buster Wallace the sources have told ESPN's sorry bubble. Wallace sources told ESPN's Marty Smith all over the place. Petty decided to travel to the Alabama superspeedway after a news was found in Wallace's garage stall on Sunday. We're going to get into that a lot, but he big moment here's Richard. Petty and many other drivers are preparing to stand with. BUBBA Wallace. Those are the headlines that you need to know I? Take your AAA. AAA SAY ESPN eight seven to nine, three, seven, seven six. That's how you get in on the fun conversation triple eight say ESPN, eight, eight, eight, seven, nine, three, seven, seven six. You can also tweet me at Jason. FITZ WANNA.

Get the unlimited plan with two thousand five gigs of high speed data, then two G. for just forty five bucks a month. Save up to fifty percent against the. The big carriers, no contracts, no compromise savings may vary, see terms and conditions at straighttalk dot com now straighttalk comes in the form of what we were just talking about. NASCAR says a news was founded BUBBA. Wallace Garage Talladega less than two weeks after Wallace led efforts to push NASCAR's Ben of the confederate flag which they did. NASCAR has released the following statement quote late. This Afternoon Nascar was made aware that was founded garage style of the forty-three team. We are angry and outraged and cannot stand state strongly enough. How seriously we take this heinous act! We've launched an immediate investigation. Investigation and we'll do everything we can to identify the person or persons responsible and eliminate them from the sport. As we stated unequivocally, there is no place for racism and NASCAR, and this act only strengthens our resolve to make the sport open, and welcoming to all also I want you to hear what bubble Wallace twitter put out a statement, which read impart today's despicable act of racism and hatred me incredibly saddened, and serves as a painful reminder of how much further we have to go as a society, and how persistent we must be in the fight against racism as my mother. Mother told me today. They are just trying to scare you. This will not break me I will not give in, nor will I back down. I will continue to proudly stand for what I believe in now as we know, according to breaking in more recent information to ESPN, the FBI is going to be involved in this investigation as everyone tries to get to the bottom of exactly what happened how it happened? Who's responsible for it I? Take plenty to say about it as they talked about. How damaging the news instant is involving bubble wallace for the overall reputation of NASCAR. The sanctioning body and its executive level have spent this entire morning pouring through what surveillance footage they have in the garage, chatting with members of bubba Wallace's team to try to get to the bottom of who this was now just so you know because of covid nineteen, the access to the garage is greatly restricted compared to what it would be without a pandemic, we're working at about one third of the amount of people within the garage area that will we would see without a covert nineteen pandemic and the people that have access to the garage are for example team members of the Cup series teams officials of the sport safety personnel. Firemen Law. Security and maybe some cleaning staffs that would be in charge of cleaning up and cleaning out the garage areas, fans are not allowed. There were some five thousand fans allowed here yesterday. It's the first time since the covid nineteen pandemic halted the sport that paying fans were welcome back to the race track, but they didn't have access to the garage so I can't say on equivocally. You can remove them from the equation, but I think you can say ninety nine percent, maybe even more than that that you can remove them from this equation, so that's one of the most troubling parts of this is that there's potential that it was someone in the sport. My prayer personally is that it was not a hard card annual credential carrying member of the sport because that would be all the more disgusting. This is despicable. Disgusting. This is have one thing this is this is. I'm sorry, go ahead! I, said, thank you for being on the show. Listen before I. Asked my follow up question when you say a hard carrying member for those out there who don't know much about NASCAR. Explain exactly what that means. When you say you hope that it's not a hard, carry a hard card carrying member. What do you mean by that? That's what. Good morning brother. This is what that's like. Nascar Lingo for an annual credential that is someone who is credential for the entire season by the sanctioning body by NASCAR, and that would be folks like me. Members of the media who cover the sport regularly that would be crew members and crew chiefs drivers, and that's actually steven one other one other great example of how restricted the garage area is. The drivers don't even have access to it. The drivers are walking from their motor homes that they live in their homes on wheels straight to their race cars to drive the cars. They're not going into garage area. So that gives you an idea of how restricted this is. I wanted to follow up with this question. I understand that. Symbolic gesture you know you see something like this left them bubble Wallace's locker. Obviously you WANNA find out who that is, and you want to. Radically from the sport I get all of that, but I take it as a more palpable threat. They're saying if we get our hands on you if we catch you, we're going to do something to you. I WANNA know. Do you get the impression that that is how NASCAR is embracing this situation? And what are they doing? If anything at all to make sure that bubble wallace is protected, because obviously, he's a huge target right now. Indeed and I will tell you quickly. I'll get to your point of of an immediate threat and just a moment, but this is a very interesting thing that I've just learned from industry sources right before we came on Richard Petty. Who drove the? Forty three car, two hundred wins and seven championship, and it's probably the most iconic face and figure in the history of the sport. He has not been at the race track Stephen since cove nineteen halted. All of Sports Mr Petty is eighty two years old, so he stayed at home well, he's coming today. He's coming today to stand beside. Darrell Wallace in solidarity, and I'm told by those sources that what the king said was this the most important thing right now for me is hugging my driver. And I don't think he's alone. I have not confirmed what the pre race ceremonies might look like, but I can tell you this I have a i. have a really good idea that we're going to see a show of solidarity for Bubba. Wallace, that's going to be moving and really show where the sport is now. Let me get back to your original question here. That's car is not gonNA. Take this crap anymore and I'll tell you why I feel like. This is another landmark moment in this progressive movement in the past. If this would've happened, I can't sit here and tell you that I know. NASCAR even would've announced it. Darrell Wallace Bubba Wallace never saw the news. A member of his team saw it. That member of the team reported that he'd seen it, and then it went to Nascar. Senior executive staff had a meeting immediately. They made the decision as a group to put this information out. Not Sweep it under the rug. Say Hey, we're going to handle this internally. We're going to tell the world. This happened and we're GONNA. Get this. SOB The hell out of here. And, that's what they're doing right now. They're working with the with the information that they have at their disposal. Talladega has a new garage. Fifty million dollar renovation, so you'd assume there's a lot of cameras in there, man. They're looking at all that now. They're talking to people who might have information, and they're determined to get to the bottom of who or whom this might be. And get him out of here. I take your take on ESPN radio ESPN. News presented by progressive. Insurance, and all of our guests appear on the Shell Pennzoil. Performance, line. You could hear the passion in Marty Smith's voice right there. When he talks about this, it means so much to him. It means so much right now to so many people around Nascar and one thing he stressed. That's important to remember. These are new facilities which means as pointed out. There should be cameras in all likelihood. Is this someone within the NASCAR family, not a fan, but someone within the Nascar family or someone affiliated with the event in some way so. Is going to be on results and figuring out who's responsible as quickly as possible. ESPN radio presented by progressive. Insurance Quote Home Insurance. It just got easier. Progressives homequote explorer quote, and by all online progressive DOT COM, let's head over to the show pennzoil performance line we're we're joined by Clinton Yates the undefeated columnist, plus you can hear him with. Don't Thursday night eight ten PM EASTERN ON ESPN radio on a new show called the intersection Clinton thanks for the time and hope you guys are safe and everything's good in your world. What was your reaction when you first heard about the news and bubble? Wallace with NASCAR, so I got to admit the news the News News. Came at a weird time during the day yesterday, because those who were following the race while they know that somebody decided to not only do that to bubble whilst locker, but prior to the race ever get run. Well fly a sky writer all over the track with confederate flag that said defend Nascar on top of that twenty to twenty five truck showed up with their confederate flags on full display on the way into the. superspeedway so there was a lot that was going on that day. In terms of just like. Wow, we're really going to have to take a look at how Nascar is going to be able to regulate this kind of stuff, because not just from fans, standpoint, the people in the facility, which are obviously none, but people just in general around using the cameras in the time to take an opportunity to display their. You know their their symbols of hatred. I think that's going to be as. As tough as anything so while the Bubbas situations obviously disgusting, it's almost a completely different story than what happened outside of the racetrack because that's going to be harder to regulate this is somebody going rogue that I guarantee is Mardi said they're gonNA find, but the larger problem here for NASCAR is. How many how are you to put teeth in what it is that you believe in in terms of your fans, and the people outside of your race tracks? So how do they do that Clinton? I The teleconference there's an Oscar teleconference happening at the bottom of the hour in which I think. A lot of people are going to ask those questions including myself, but I think the way you have to do. This is by saying that. You know couple of years ago. They had a policy where they said. If you WANNA turn in your confederate flags, we'll give you flies back. Sort of a buyback type of situation that I thought was weird, but it was a decent on. Show good faith. If you will now, they're saying they won't be allowed in I. Think you kind of have to go to a position now where it says not only if we find something on, you good kicked out, but you probably can't come back and that's the only way that this is going to hold any real water. In my opinion, because otherwise you're just gonNA run into a situation. Situation exactly like this. Some guy wants to fly a plane three miles from the stadium, but you can actually see the Dag gone thing from the TV cameras. That's an issue. If the Road Tabasco literally lined with flags, you can't have that I. mean you simply have to crack down on what is considered acceptable in and around your sport and you have to do that with access bands otherwise. People are going to do this anyway. Because the places where these events happen are in localities were obviously people have no problems expressing themselves this way, and that's ultimately with the larger problem is here with NASCAR? Are you going to not only divest herself from fans, but also affiliated businesses and locales where they're not going to change their minds about that? That's going to be the hard part isn't just coming out and saying we don't want. The confederate flag on display. It's saying to every single person if you condone this, we have to separate ourselves from Youtube, and that's not easy. We're talking to Clinton aide. She can read them. Obviously on the undefeated. Seem all over ESPN. You can hear them now. On a new show called the intersection with L. Dunkin Thursday nights eight to ten. PM EASTERN ON ESPN radio. So Clinton when you talk about the confederate flags, being flown outside the race to in fairness as you said twenty or twenty five trucks, right? I'm trying to sort of do a cost analysis here on game versus lost because I've had this debate with some of the listeners on this show. Some people have called him passionately saying they'll never support and ask again. However I've spent more money in the last two weeks on Bubba Wallace gear than I have on now occupied by entire life. So how big a deal is it for twenty or twenty five trucks compared to the audience that they're gaining exposure that they're gaining. It's not a big deal, but ultimately requires you to have some attention to it because of the. The people who you are trying to get if people still feel like I'm trying to get into this game, and I mean that in the psychological sense, not in terms of the physical sentence, but I still see these folks every time I'm going to get turned off. Game is very minimal, because this is the reason why NASCAR wanted to get rid of this element to begin with look I hate to be crass about this, but the time a person that identifies very strongly with the confederate flag is broke. They're not adding to NASCAR's bottom line in any way sort of. CACHET, which isn't worth that much to a league this popular at this point all it does turn off fortune, five hundred companies, and like otherwise well established places that want to do business with NASCAR car because a couple. I don't know self-described rednecks wanted decide that they wanna fly the stars and bars like they're not gaining nearly as much as they think from this popular. What they're doing is setting off a small but vocal minority of people who are at the grass roots level everywhere they go. That's the issue is the depth within which these people are in the culture because they invented it as much as it is the money or anything, they're adding to it, so you've gotta find a way to try to extricate something that you consider cancers from your overall stature without crumbling the entire system because that's what it was built on. It's tough. So Clinton. Let's put our magic. Glasses on and look to the future. Okay I'M NOT GONNA. If I could look to the future, I'd win the lottery, but. If you had to guess right now based on the action, you've seen so far in the last few weeks and NASCAR. You try and extrapolate that forward when you look at Nascar and three years. What's the sport look like? I think the sport looks like something where one number one more people can feel comfortable. Coming to races number. Two more people are involved with NASCAR on a level. That's not just about drivers. That's one of the things that people feel to realize about. WHY NASCAR is even cooler on some level is because there are so many people doing so many different things whether it's. Communications in the League office whether it's track to track stuff in terms of how people coordinate logistics of racist or not the people in the pits in garages who make the cars change, the tires pump the gas, and with Chelsea's those people can all be a part of the system as well as for black folks and non white people to get involved on all levels, not just one of driving. That's going to be I. Think we'RE NASCAR is going to focus and where they should because. because. That's how you create fans, not just people who WanNa win and that's ultimately I think what the goal is for NASCAR's and environment from a fan standpoint that everybody can be a part of everybody's GonNa WanNA drive race cars. No matter what you look like for the rest of time whether or not anybody wants to watch anybody else do that. Well, that has to do with who else is around them watching whether or not, they feel safe doing it and NASCAR figure that out. I. Said Clinton I can't have you not like you're the biggest baseball fan I know, so I know we're talking NASCAR. At least got to ask you like. Where are you right now? As a massive baseball guy, you know I'm not a massive baseball. If they get this worked out and you get some games good. No, I don't know I just hope the quality of the baseball is is is what matters like. If they ended up getting a bunch of guys, you have to play because they don't have any other choice per their contracts and all as who can afford to stay out, stay out. That's not gonNA. Make for a good product and it's going to put too many guys at risk who are too young. You Bang out the minor leagues which was what is your development system? You can't further put the guys who are actually going to be the next players in. In the game at risk, that's my main concern here. Twenty twenty been weird enough as it is, if it takes it making a wash in order for them to figure out the labor situation, everybody healthy I'd rather that than stop start a season two or three times, not trying to get a world series in after an already you know just mess stops schedule as is I. Really Hope they don't force this down their throats. I hope they can come to an agreement and look. There are certain people that every time I baseball news. My heart just goes. And you're one of them so as always you can read them on the fetus. Check out the intersection with L. Duncan Thursday. Nights eight PM EASTERN ON ESPN Radio Clinton I. Appreciate Your time, your insights man. Thanks so much for joining this great to hear from your brother Talk to you soon. Brought to you by my computer career training for a better life I think one thing that stands out to me. The more I continue to think about all of the NASCAR conversation is it's as I've said, and I'll continue to say on this microphone as often as possible. We have to stop looking at everybody else to effect change, and we have to start looking left and right, and we'll see how NASCAR's capable of doing that. Over the course of the reaction from everything that happened this week. And what I mean by that is if you're driving or if you're a NASCAR executive. You're somebody that works within the sport when we get the information on whoever's responsible for hanging newsom bubble Wallace's? Work area when we get that information. That is treated. We'll give is a great example. Idea of how everyone is handling. It left to right. How are other drivers reacting to it? How are other employees react to it? How would the people at that same level in the sport reacting to the action, but the other part of it comes to the twenty or twenty-five fans in cars that are sitting outside flying the confederate flag. We talk about what NASCAR supposed to do there. What are we supposed to do as a society? How are we supposed? Supposed to react I think my real call here's for NASCAR fans to be passionate about an Nascar Fan can look at another nascar fan and say hey, man. Sport doesn't stand for that if an ask our and look at another Nascar Fan. Man, you're embarrassing all if a Nascar Fan can actually do that rather than just looking to the sport to make change looking for how NASCAR IS GONNA react to it. If fans can start holding fans accountable with the very simple premise of be better, do better. How much actual change could be affected and this isn't just a NASCAR issue. This is a sports. When sports return in the fall, one of my main hopes is it all of us when we finally get the opportunity to stand next to other fans whether it's in a bar whether socially distanced in your house whether it's in a stadium if it's in a parking lot wherever it is I hope that some level of what we've learned right now, we'll help everybody look to right and hold the people standing around them to A. A higher level of accountability that is the way that all of us can begin to affect some level of change. I think your take on ESPN radio ESPN news. We'll keep the conversation going obviously throughout the course of the day about everything we've learned in this process and what it means four NASCAR moving forward of course, but coming up next with the recent spike in covid cases, should the NBA even be considering coming back?

If you're not comfortable going out, don't worry about they. Take care of it, so start summer the home depot doers get more done. What are they going to actually get done in the NBA in Florida? You'll hear what I take things. I take your take. ESPN RADIO ESPN. I saw I. You're taking. On ESPN radio the ESPN APP, siriusxm channel eighty an ESPN news. I'm Jason Fitz. We'll take your take I really. I'm interested to hear what you guys have to say about. The NBA triple eight say Espn Eight, eight, eight, seven, nine, three, seven, seven, six a lot of conversation that we're GONNA have today, but the next conversation that I want you to hear is about the NBA. NBA, specifically, as they're trying to figure out what to do, look let's not get. It twisted one positive covid nineteen test shutdown, not just the NBA, but the entire world of sports right like all sports, a town I was hosting the ESPN daily the night that the NBA shut down, and we were getting ready to be done with the episode and all of a sudden Bam. Rudy Gobert test positive we tape everything I remember the night to the NBA shutdown over one test. Now we're in a world where suddenly you have. What thirty plus players from Lsu have tested positive for. You have twenty eight players around Clemson. Athletics tested positive what we're seeing. Dozens of cases across the college football landscape and everybody's saying well. Yeah, we'll. We'll figured out. In fact when Doctor Allen Sills, the chief medical officer of the NFL was on Golic and Wingo. He said that the NFL will have to adapt to cove in nineteen, because covid nineteen won't adapt to the NFL none of that says canceled and we have. have to understand that the NBA is looking at coming back together for a playoff in an area of Florida. That's getting harder than ever before now let's be real if we invented a time machine and took today's results. Put it back to what we were experiencing march, the shutdown started. People would be absolutely losing their mind at the concept that we didn't bringing sports back, but instead it looks like in no matter what the risk is at some level. Everybody's just plowing forward. Because there's the sense that well, we've just got to get back to normal, so the question is. Should the NBA even be thinking about coming together? I want you guys chime in triple eight say Espn Eight, eight, eight, seven, nine, three, seven, seven six, should the NBA consider getting back into action I'll take your take on it, but first let's get some straight. Talk brought to you by straight talk. Wireless comes in the form of Stephen Marcus fears and Jay, Williams breaking down whether or not the NBA should even be considering coming back to action in Florida. No one can doubt the job that Eh drew. Cuomo has done as governor of the stadium. With this whole Cova nineteen pandemic now critics have accused grandstanding being on television entirely too much, even though I would submit to all y'all his segments with his brother. Chris Cuomo on CNN the nothing short of a Larry's the too few times that I've caught him, but let's be very clear. New York was the epicenter. Of the covert. Pandemic in the United States of America. They are now in face to starting today. where the city is reopening in terms of flattening the curve, lowering the curve and getting their bearings under them and moving in a forward direction New, York is what it's all about right now, because of that man's leadership that no way around okay, and so when you take that into consideration, and you consider the most say that the. The size I understand density is an issue on. What have you the size of New York? City, the amount of hotels that has available to it. The fact that people have been in the streets, but engaging in social, distancing wearing their masks, and not feeling strapped in damn near in prison in the process. If you take that into consideration, and you compare that to what? What the governor has done in Florida where you might have opened up a bit prematurely, you might have been too lax and might not might not have been as vigilant as some would say. You should have been in enforcing some of the safety protocols and measures that would keep your seats. Just stay safe, and now we've got twenty three different states that have spite the state. State of Florida is one of the states that is obviously not had. They haven't had it too good. As of late I would say because of the leadership that you have here the fact that it is New York. It's got them city I think that would be very appealing to all parties concerned I. Think it's something that should be strongly considered if Orlando doesn't workout. Stephen a Smith. There is, there is no way. That the NBA could pivot with less than a month. You're talking about a multibillion dollar. Organizations think about how much money it would take to then drop all plans to do in Orlando. A multi place acidity a built in bubble to a degree to then say hey, we want to just do it in New York. You have to find a location. You have to find the right facilities as relates to. Hotels there's there's no. happening. Okay, where are you going to buy say? How're you GONNA. Keep everybody in inclined. Fan. I hear what you're saying. Sounds good. It sounds good, but is it realistic? There's no way it's realistic. You can't data the month now. I. I understand Reid Hoffman has said he's the CEO of Lincoln that sometimes you to jump off the cliff and symbol the plane on the way down, but this is too detailed of a plane to a symbol. After he jumped off the cliff on this one. Now. There are a lot of things that worry me about Orlando. Disney allowing employees to go in and out and them not being as frequently as tested as a player should be, but I'll tell you this right now. I've talked to a lot of players I live here in Brooklyn. I will see players leaving their other locations. Do come here to Brooklyn or Newark to play the game, and if I'M GONNA player I'm leaning towards not playing I'm sitting there watching since Saturday. There's been four thousand forty nine cases that have happened regardless of whether you want to tell me. Testing has increased or I don't care what the reasons are actively my family for two and half three months and I'm supposed to be in a bubble and now we're going to change locations in the last month. I'm leaning towards not doing this player in a lot of players going to be putting the situation, a lot of players may play because they need the paycheck, but your player in a good situation financially. I don't know if I wanted to see myself to a similar on the plane on the way down. Especially watching all these case, numbers are rising regardless of whether you tell me it's testing is going up or you know people are just getting more cases in general I. I'm scared. You simply scared of your player. Multiple players say that Stephen. I take your take on ESPN radio. ESPN, news this interesting to me, because as much as you just got the straight talk straight talk, wireless everything less only at Walmart from the guys as they take a look at the situation where the NBA retired like. Tell me how if you're just looking at cove in nineteen. If that's the only factor in this decision, take business out of dollars and cents out of a take money out of it. Take take your want for sports. Just look at the facts in a bubble. If the League shut down because it didn't know how to handover nineteen, what do we now know? What did I miss that? We've learned so much that we. We know everything. There is to know about it at this point, so we feel safe about. Is it that or is it that we frankly you're trying to treat covid nineteen like the Macarena like we're ready to move on now? I understand that there's going to be conspiracy theories about what this means, and who's promoting that and why? This is all going on look I'm not here for any of that conversation. I'm asking you is if Covid nineteen was worse shutting the NBA down in March. How can we possibly look at the results right now and say it's worth bringing back other than the fact that we just we want it. All one is transparency in this like. Fans step just admit. Hey, you know what I wanted so since I want it should come back. Everything's gotta come back at some point. That's been the argument Jeremy in Hawaii. We'll take your take on a Jeremy. What's your? Take the NBA Comeback to Florida? Hey Good morning. Jason, thank you for having me. did not definitely go to Florida absolutely not. So. I believe that. The police to be is in Hawaii I know that logistically that doesn't make sense but. Safety Wise. we have a two week quarantine before anybody can leave their hotel Barbara all open. Do. The website is the best I talk about a bubble. There's a bubbling. New Zealand the all the rugby match. Twenty thousand fans in the stands you know. I think Hawaii's a pace. Look Jeremy I'm going to argue with you especially if I can somehow fanego that assignment like if I can find my way to please God I mean we need to digital show to cover this thing right like I'll just go hosted if we're going to Hawaii I. Feel like the players. It'd be all in for this discussion to. Privatize the certain section of beach and just make sure that the hang out in why. I'm going to be honest like the thought of Hawaii sounds good. I'm just not sure that it's right to get everybody back together in general I. Don't know the answer to this Stephen in Tennessee. What's your take? So I see no issue with assuming that they handle it correctly in Florida and here's. Why so if we look at what Tony Kahn, the Jacksonville Jaguars Com family has done his organization eight W. What he? Is, he runs weekly episodic shows games that sporting event and every single person that comes in there whether they be performer or a crewmember are being tested before they gain entry into the venue. He's had zero cases with this running out of Jacksonville area with a high number of cases and has been able to do this without having to shut down as long as the League takes stained amount of precautionary worth making sure to stay out on testing, not letting people in until. They don't have anything. We can continue on as long as they want to. Just comes down to how serious they take it well, it's even take stick with me for one second. If can, so, w obviously is done in the more isolated way. Does it change your fat? Your thought when you realize that? The NBA players unlike the w guys. They can't go anywhere they've got. They've got to stay where they are for months. Does that make it better or worse for you? Once again. I think it comes down to how the league wants to regulated I. Mean if if the League wants to keep players he in that location, doing all of the games out of their scheduled at different times I don't be an issue obviously, if there's going to be tons of travel going around, it does make it difficult, but listen to travel sort. Sort of thing, it's something that we've all sacrificed at this point, so if the league really wants to make this a safe as possible do keep people isolated in that area and just one games. Whenever you can, it helps bring in revenue. It's going to help. Keep the fans excited, and it's going to help. Keep the players and the staff members Saito. We'll look and I don't disagree with everything. You're saying right there. It totally makes sense. It's just hard for me to wrap my head. Sometimes around the fact, that would they say? Five percent testing of five percent of the NFL players for example have tested positive for seeing these huge numbers out of college, football and remembering. Game from all over the country, and they're now coming together, and frankly many of the people that are are testing positive for covid nineteen are asymptomatic. They don't even realize they have it at the athlete level so I understand that there are variables to this that make it more more difficult than just a black and white situation, and they're very gray area of trying. Trying to figure out safe, however, if covid nineteen is really this Oh, my God, monster that we all have to stay away from. I can't see any truly safe way to bring. Max, it's like what they're doing is saying I instead of saying look, we're going to do this in a way that that safety is I what they're saying now is we're going to? To do this in the safest way possible, which means inherent risk now some people are comfortable taking that risk. Others are not well. We have to make sure that we do throughout the process of it is respect. Everybody involved in these decisions on the NBA Cider any sport side as they decide what they're personally comfortable with, but we also have to acknowledge that this. This is going to be a very difficult situation. especially if they manage to miss one positive test or have one instance that suddenly leads to entire teams being eliminated coming up next more I take your what happens when anime fighter wants to stop the fight, but a corner doesn't let him I reacted to it today. I take your take ESPN radio ESPN news. I take your take on ESPN radio. The ESPN APP Siriusxm Channel Eighty and ESPN news. You can also get fans. Just ask your smart speakers to hang out with ESPN radio gets you to US I'm Jason Fitz don't forget dubbed men plus care is proud to honor Nelson Cruz. He's the recipient of the twenty twenty Mohammed Ali sports humanitarian of the year Ward Dove Men plus cared today in every day. Care makes the difference now. What makes the difference when it comes to care? Specifically when we're talking about. Athletes and WHO's looking out for them? That's an interesting question. Because right now we've had so much of the talk about covert nineteen, and we continue to have a conversation about health and safety, but health and safety also applies to guys that are on the field and guys. Specifically that are in the ring. That's why you have see has protocols when a fighter wants out in a fighter can't continue he. He supposed to tell his corner and there's corner is supposed to end the fight. That's what makes a particularly exchange from over the weekend very very interesting, because the Nevada, State Athletic Commission is now looking into a controversial sequence of events that happened in a UFC fight between Max, Roscoff and Austin Hubbard. This is a little bit of the exchange with Roscoff and his trainer about wanting the fight stopped. Listen withdraw. We got this. You can be the. Listen You got this guy. South, we got this. They breathe gay. Catch your breath. We're GonNa be just got called feet. You're going to catch now. We got. We got this mix. Champion shop. Champions Constructive Sandra. Get on top of the hour wrestling. Gold. You can't. Talk Kobe. He was heard saying call it nine times during the woman at rest period between rounds nine times, and at some point, his corner refused to hear it. In fact, it was NSA see inspector charvet's fogler. Who noticed that he wanted out? So we call it on the referee in the cage side position to ask him directly. We wanted to continue. That's when it was called. At some point, you gotta look who's protecting these fighters and when the fighter. Fighter turns around and says he doesn't have it in him. What happens so my remit? CAFFEY? ESPN radio host went off Sunday morning. With some smart words I wanted to hear about what should happen to Rosskopf's trainer. He should be suspended from training any fighter from cornering any fighter going forward in the AFC they should take his license and he should have to apply for reinstatement after we figure out if he's ready to come back, but he put. Put that young man in a position where he could have died, and everybody says Oh. No, he was just exhausted. That's not the point he was done. And if you're done, you're saying I can't defend myself and if you can't defend yourself, then that's what you get into a situation like we had one thousand, nine, hundred eighty two matt where you had rape Boom Boom Mancini. Do Kim on CBS sports and you know what happened that fight they. They went fourteen rounds and do after that fight. After being TKO by ray boom boom, Manzini died, he died on national TV. And you know what happened three months after that his mother took her own life. And you WanNa know what happened six months after that the referee in that fight? Richard Green took his own life and boxing off TV. People like Robert Drysdale will cause us to lose the entire sport. Robert Drysdale should be suspended from cornering. Or anywhere else going forward, suspend him now because he could have cost that young man his life. Those are strong words, and they're accurate words from Myron metcalf over the course of the weekend again you've got gotTA fighter here. Who was on short notice? He accepted five days ago. Telling his chief Cornerman nine times that he's done, he's out going into the third and final round that he can't do it and instead of tournament, coming in and and helping him protecting him in. In this situation, he was trying to push back into the ring and yeah, you can say oh. He's trying to help them. Find an execute whatever that reason might be in your mind why it would be acceptable but I can't find one I mean I'm interested to see what the NAP Nevada State Athletic Commission finds from this because there isn't a middle ground on this. Is supposed to be protecting a fighter all ultimately from himself at some point, the person in your corner supposed to be the one that says hey, he's got so much Dr I'm afraid he's GonNa. Put Him back out there and put himself at risk for the opposite to be happening is such a blatant disregard for the health and safety of the person that's in there taking the punches taking the hits putting himself danger. I don't understand how you could ever possibly led him back in a ring I. don't see how you can trust. Robert Drysdale to take. Take your anyone when he had this opportunity and he didn't do his job. His most important job is to protect his fighter and he simply chose not to do that is something I can't make sense of and that is the reason why you have seen needs to step in and make sure that he doesn't have the opportunity to hurt another fighter ever again. We're going to keep taking your takes as we continue, but Dak Prescott signed a big deal. Should he sign the franchise tender? You'll hear what I think's next I. Take Espn Radio Espn News.

Tuesday, June 23: Bubba Wallace, Loni Love

"Subscribe to our podcast to get hot topics delivered every afternoon, and while you're at it, rate US and Labor Review. Today on all new. Testing testing. After president trump's stunning claim in Tulsa about his coronavirus responds so I, said to my people slow the testing down, please. He doubles down and contradicts the White House saying he was only kidding I. Don't kiss, but is trying to make a serious point about how effective his response has been. And for the first time on television. NASCAR's only top ranked black driver Bubba Wallace is live to talk about the news found in his team's garage after leading the pack on getting race officials to ban the confederate flag, and how other drivers rallied behind him plus the real co host Lonnie love is giving her view on the nationwide calls for justice and sharing her story about a run in with a racist cop that got her arrested. Hot topics start live right now. Hello and welcome to the view y'all ooh. I'm telling you I think I have one. I am hot as heck anyhow right now, the. Virus cases are on the girl. Wait a minute now. I'm telling you. It's too. I should have one less cloning right now. Because on television every we've all got yes, satisfy it is. Oh my goodness. Any Hope Corona virus cases are on the rise in twenty nine states and territories, but you know who still can't get his story straight about where he stands on testing. Take a look what you do testing to that extent. You're gonNA find more people. You're gonNA find more cases. So I said to. My people slow the testing down, please. They're saying. was that tongue in cheek or own semi St-. Say It all the time I know. Some people thought it was done cheek. Unfair! I don't kid. Let me just tell you. Let me make it clear. We have got the greatest testing program anywhere in the world. Well so now I'm even more confused, but apparently joy. You never thought he was kidding in first place. Now I never did really, but I thought that he gave his enablers some wiggle room to to spin what he said. They said he was joking either way. He's a loser, because if he wasn't joking, then he has to admit that. Several hundred thousand bottom. How many people thousands of people have already died from the virus? So you can't make a joke in that kind of atmosphere. Even as a comedian I would never do that. And if he was joking, then He. I mean if he wasn't he was. then. Then, it's. It's just like you know. What are you joking about? The whole thing doesn't make any sense to me, but the truth of the matter is is always wanted to slow down the testing because the testing. When it's in big numbers, it's accurate. It makes him look bad I believe that's called criminal negligence when you say I'm not going to do testing just like he goes out without a mask and encourages. The curve keeps going up. Because of him I just looked up. Another country are the countries. The curve is going down not here because of him. Right so if he actually did tell his team to slow down testing. Sunny. Is there illegal case to be made? Against Him for negligence I mean. Don't think that there's. Well there's there's no legal precedent for for something like that. Certainly while he's in office, but you know. Sanjay Gupta was on CNN yesterday and Explaining that there really is no correlation between an increase in testing an increase in in cases, but what Sanjay did mention is that it's just such a public health travesty. If this is true, we know that the United States has not met its burden in terms of testing. We're supposed to be testing up to five million people a day and we just. Just have never done that and for the president to admit I don't think he was kidding and he says he wasn't kidding for the President President to admit that he wanted the slow down of testing, so to make himself look better I mean I. Just think it's such a tragedy when you've had a hundred and twenty thousand people dead on his watch. It's just despicable, and it's really despicable that he has Kelly mcenaney. Justifying his use of the Kung flew the term. The Kong flu, which is racist when you have a Kaley Meccan, any just justifying what's coming out of this administration. I've just I'm just deeply saddened at the state of our country, right? And he's right now. Heading to Arizona is on his way, Megan. You guys. Zona. Right now to be on the rise, yeah, literally right now, and he's going to check on a Finnish section of the border wall. Disasters seem like a really smart optic to you. Well there's there's a few things I WANNA hit here. The first one is our former co host, and my all of our good friend Abby, huntsman, her and her family have covert and they were. They had false negatives in the test that they were giving. You can look at her social media. She's made videos and she describes having covert is like having a snake wrapped around your entire body, and you don't know which time it's going to tighten and constrain you and put you in pain and she was. Was Sheltering in place in Utah, and she's been extremely responsible in her family somehow ended up getting it. So this is obviously a virus disease it. We need to continue to be vigilant about the numbers are rising in Arizona I actually spoke with Governor Ducey is team this morning? Because I wanted to get more information, and they are now mandating that you have to wear masks and Maricopa County, which is the county I grew up in which is I, believe one of the largest Arizona Tour Phoenix says. They're doing reopening with social distancing, and all I it's like phase one like it is in other states A lot of young people are now getting it, which is interesting and I don't know if it's because of the protesting or because young people just aren't complying because they feel invincible, or they feel like it's an old person's disease and I. Think as you've said so many times what B it's dangerous to only think of this as a young persons disease. Abby is thirty three. Young people and people of all ages are getting this disease, and you don't know how your body is GonNa React, and even an Abbey's household. She describes it each members of her family. That has it is reacting in different ways. It listen this is this. This disease is crazy. We there's so much. We don't know and I just want to put this out. Because so many people say you know it's my right not to wear a mask well. It's your right not to ask. If you're in your house. It is not your right to take yourself outside, not knowing whether or not you're Ild, and not having a mask and protecting the people out there so. So it is all of our rights to have a good healthy life that we choose to have. We're all trying to figure out what to do. Start making this is not political. Please wear masks. Because you don't know. Have the disease is working? You don't know if you have. You can have a test and you can have false positives. Nobody is absolutely short. Please put on your mask for everybody's sake. We'll be right back. Shot off after incidents of violence and chaos in Seattle, the mayor tells protesters in the police rezone took Pakistan. Did they make your point or did? They set the entire movement back? Explosive, how is the White House and the country reacting to what John Bolton said about the president? What happens now now tomorrow? John Bolton is live facing the women of the view, then our political view. It's heating up with Senator Tammy Baldwin, plus he's never afraid to share his view George. Lopez is here this week on the view on ABC. Still ahead of you exclusive. NASCAR driver BUBBA. Wallace is responding to the racist backlash over his mission to ban the confederate flag and stand with protesters, demanding justice and the real co host Lonnie. Love is giving her view in hot topics. Welcome back after. Some violence in one shooting death in the police freest free zone in Seattle mayor. Dirk and says it's time for demonstrators to pack it in and go home, and she's working out terms with them to sort of balance both things out. Did they make their point the demonstrators? Do, you think the message got lost and set the movement back I ask You Megan. Oh. I thought I was going third I actually wanted to hear what the ladies had to say, so can I go last? I have I. I wouldn't I actually I think. This is a fluid conversation actually, and that's why yesterday when I was asking. Joy Sunny about Mount Rushmore I think this is a conversation. That's ongoing I will say in specificity about what's happening in Seattle I had compared it to. Remember what I compare the two, but it. There's a lot of violence that's happening and a lot of shooting. That's happening in Seattle, and I think that the mayor had no other option other than to go in, but when we're having conversations about statues, and there was a protest outside of the White House in Washington DC last night. I think these are just ongoing conversations. Okay so. How do you think this played out? You know I I would agree that. These are ongoing conversations. What people I think? Forget historically is that the civil rights movement was not a moment, but certainly a movement right when you think about the movie. Let's say Selma and you think about that famous march on the bridge. There was more than one March Eva. Dearborn as movie was only about one march. There were three marches on that very bridge, and so I think this is a fluid moment. I think we can't. Can't get caught up in and having the message co-opted the messages about the inequity that we see we don't see that. Black lives matter as much as a lives. We don't have racial equality. We have discrimination. We have the fact that blacks are brutally arrested five times more than white people are, so we and we have this systemic races racism. That's going on in healthcare. It's going on and employment this going on every facet of our. And, so we have to make sure that we don't lose sight of the fact that yes, maybe people art toppling. And I know that we toppling statues, because they want to get the core that these symbols and like the confederate flag. Bubble Wallace, coming, coming on these symbols are symbol of hatred and history, and we have to move on and I. Think I agree with Megan because this is, this is the fluid conversation. Right, so join. Do you think the message broke through? Just want to say that these protests are happening all over the world. They're not just happening in this country. Let's remind remember that. Also protest create change. They always have they always well. It's as American as Apple Pie as they say but I. Don't think it's a good idea for our side. My side to give ammunition to the other side toppling statues only gives them a reason to say that there are a bunch of criminals on the other side. They should disband. The police gives ammunition to people like trump. Who say you see? They don't want any policing so that they can use that against the protestors, so I think we need to remember that and you know like we say about the police. They're always a few bad apples. Well. Maybe that's true in every group, but let's not brush paint the entire process movement now because they will use it against our side my side, I'll say my side in. November so be careful. Right well, yeah, so we so here's what I think is happened. I just I just I. Think what's happened is both sides have recognized that what what both sides wanted is not absolutely possible, but there was changed to be made I. believe the protesters discovered or rediscovered that there is a reason to have a police department particularly when people shooting, it's always good to have people who will actually investigate to see what goes on I. think that the mayor and the governor and the State discovered that the that the protesters do have something to say, and they do want to make it better so I believe messages are being heard as far as. As statues go to everybody to pay attention I would like to add faces to Mount Rushmore, I think native Americans would love to have faces added to Mount Rushmore. I'd like to see faces added to Mount Rushmore I. think that because we all now are part of the conversation of what kind of monuments we would love to see. We're in a better position to say I think this would be somebody great to to at. It took us a while to get second. We're on a dollar. Maybe it's going to take less time to get more faces in the places that we'd like to see him. We'll be right back. Welcome back baby. New York. City entered phase. Two of reopening restaurants, salons and stores are open for business was safe, distancing restrictions and like everywhere in the Country People's comfort levels are all over the place. You Know Dj. Callen posted himself. Has met suit. Go into. Get going to the doctor going to the dentist so I guess the question is. What's your comfort level about getting back to business as usual sunny? I'm not that comfortable and I was hoping that I would be actually. And it's because when you when you look at the statistics I think in twenty six states, and they can correct me in my ear. If I'm wrong, you're seeing a spike and so while in New York you're seeing. It flattened out a bit I wonder what the numbers will look like in two weeks from today, so I am just not that comfortable I just wonder if we're going to be amongst those twenty six states in two weeks, and so I I'm just going to I think wait it out I, think I'm going to bunker in like the president. Right. How about you are you ready to hit the salon or have people? You can get your hands on. You can have people over for drinks. What do you think joy? Well maybe, but I. don't have much faith that this is going to end anytime soon I. Really don't I'm very concerned I mean. Giant Axiom. Only we have wait a second Barna vaccine. All we have is social, distancing and masks, neither of which is happening in this country right now. There is no leadership telling us this is going to go on and on and on and I'll tell you the truth. It's making me crazy. All I do is get in my car. Maybe with Steve and I go, we go around town, looking for people poor, not wearing masks jealous of my life. That's it. That's what I do. What about you make about you Megan we where you at with S. it was safe. I would join you. I would be happy to get in a car with you. Look at people without masters. It's so interesting because I'm sure just like the rest of. You ladies. I have friends in my life, who are will not leave their home, so scared will only still go for walks, and then I know people who are basically Cova, troopers who are not social distancing or not I'm not interacting with them, but I know! That's what they're doing and I think part of it. Is this misinformation even talking about President Trump? Saying that he slowed down the testing, he didn't slow down the test and there's still a lot of confusion I'm really worried about this spikes and other states, too. There's so much unknown I. Really don't want to get. Get this this virus. I don't think anyone does. It can be really dangerous, and you just see like pictures of people who've lost like thirty pounds and people have died, and it's just. We just don't know enough. So I think we're all as much as I would literally I think I would let joy amputate my foot, live on television to get us back in studio and back to real life if that's what it would take, but it's just say, and we just have to deal with it and I'm sorry because I miss every crazy I hate doing this this way. Well I just put on all the weight. Everyone is losing and I'm loving it. We'll be right back.

BUBBA WALLACE IS NASCAR's only top full-time black driver, who successfully pushed the League to ban confederate flags at all events in the wake of mass protests for racial equality. Now on Sunday. A noose was found in bubbas garage at the Talladega superspeedway in Alabama. NOW NASCAR has launched an investigation into what they call a heinous act and BUBBA. Wallace joins us here now to talk about this from his home in concord north. Carolina hello. bubba was welcome to the view. We are proud to have you here. Yes it more than thank you for having me on its honored to be here. I also should point out that this did not stop you from having a career best finish at Talladega yesterday so congratulations, also the governor of Alabama has apologized on behalf of your home. State and the FBI is looking into the incident as well so when you heard about it, what was your reaction to it? And I know your mom SORTA, said Hey united to take this. Tell me what what happened to you. Yeah so I found out. Later on the US on Sunday evening that the Trump had been committed and the garage by the president. President of our seatbelts, a call me and She. The. Way The way he called me in his voice, his character that moment I didn't know what to expect I was like what did I say in an interview? What did I do? What kind of trouble my in. And he he comes motorhome. That's where that's where we're only allowed. Drivers are only allowed to go straits, motorhomes and hang out there because of Covid, nineteen and social this zinc and stuff so. I was in my motor home all day, and so he called and wanted to come over and talk face to face, and and he had told me what had happened and. Tears. was was in. His is flowing from him for the moment. He stepped inside my motor home. To the time that he left, he was so upset. I didn't know what to say or what to do I have never. Ever. Had that happen and not being able to see a directly? I was just kind of thinking like what trying to process at all. And you know. My Dad had told me he's like you gotTa. After after the confederate flag deal, we, he said. I'm proud of you, but I'm also worried about your safety, so you have to be careful, so this just shows just how how much to watch my back. And he he reiterated that on Sunday after I. Call Him so I. Call My mom I. Call. My Dad and we talked about it and he again you know said. GonNa Watch back. YOU GOTTA! Keep your head on the swivel and so that's just kind of how we're about. Obviously I was hurt. I was sad. That we go to those those measures on I wouldn't say shocked because we see the stuff that goes on in the world but just unfortunate that happened to me, and my crew was able to see it and witness added, and it Kinda took our mind racing for a little bit and so I. Guess It was kind of okay that we were put on a rain delay. To go on and let us refocus for Monday. Mr Mr Wallace before the race at holiday yesterday, all of your fellow drivers and their teams rallied around you and they pushed your car. The front of the field racing legend and team owner Richard Petty stood in solidarity with you and former Nascar drivers like the legendary Dale Earnhardt Junior, and even other athletes like Lebron James tweeted their support. What does it mean to you to have so much support in your corner right now? Every time I watched that video I. Get you know emotional and get chills and just to see. You know love compassion, and understanding those were the three words at written on my black lives. Matter Car Martinsville just a week ago. Too extreme sorry and. To See everybody come together and show their support. You know where we are all competitors. We all basically don't like each other when the race starts. We Wanna go out and beat each other That's just what competitors do, but we always show the utmost respect off the racetrack in times of need time supported, and I'm proud to be part of the NASCAR family. Sometimes when you when you don't really see all the support. I guess you don't really focus on that these times kind of a bring back a positive light. Of of of love and passion and solidarity and unity to to unite together and show that. Love is way stronger hate. Out some people are suggesting that this is a hoax or perhaps even stage by NASCAR to garner more support for the removal of the confederate flag, but my understanding is that the only people who have access to the area where the noose was found are the racing teams, and perhaps a few essential workers. So what would you say to those people who are doubting that this even happened or that? It's true. Yeah just like. Steve Phelps said it offends me that people would go to those measures but again. I'm not shocked. People are entitled to their own opinion to make them feel good. Whatever make them helps them sleep at night. But it is still an ongoing investigation with the FBI. I can now say I've talk to the FBI ever thought that would happen? But it's just it's just unfortunate circumstances in A. Terrible time that we're in right now. You're twenty. Twenty will be one year, too for sure forget. Moving forward, but it's it's as simple minded people like that the ones that are afraid of change they they use everything in their power to defend what they signed up for and instead of trying to listen and understand. What's going on and like I said it's still ongoing investigation. We're still trying figure out. How whoever did this crazy act trying to pinpointed on somebody and just go through it all, so it's you know I think it was better for you not to see directly I don't know how our would've reacted. But it's all on their hands now. The FBI sands to two goes through everything and try to figure it out. So the. You've been the leading voice for social. Justice within NASS car. We can I believe that's true by the way people don't like change unless it benefits then then they like it so. In, addition to getting the League to ban the confederate flag. You raised a couple of weeks ago in a black lives, matter car and you wore, I can't breathe t shirt. On Sunday. You tweeted this latest incident. A will not break me. I will not give in that, nor will I back down if anything. Has This reinforced your commitment to social, change. Absolutely this just shows how much further we have to go as a as a sport, but also as a nation to On a global level as well I mean it's it's a problem. Systematic racism is a is a problem from every aspect of life than. We have to work so hard to. To get that to change, and we know it's not going to change overnight. Who knows the year five ten years, but this isn't gonNA. Stop me from changes in going to be something that just boils over and blows over sweep it under the rug. And forget about you know it's it's. It's a pardon me that I said a couple of weeks ago. That something changed inside of me to be. I guess an activist mother said. Did you ever believe you'll be an active online? No, not really, but you know it just felt something in my heart that I needed to step up up and be a leader in the forefront and ob, I'm. The only black driver Nascar it's easier for me to talk on these matters because I go through. Some, some racist racism throughout my life. I don't have it as hard as people still go through its witness and be a part. And speak on the matters in educate others think that's the biggest thing that that we as a as a sport are messing out. There is educating people listening and learning. Helping people understand what other people are going through. You know we are very often too quick to listen. Don't give enough time to hear each other out, so throughout all of this. It'll still solidify where I stand in stand Bro. So listen. You can always come back to the view anytime I'm not getting I'm so proud of you and I'm proud and NASCAR. I think Nascar for standard by you. Recognizing that a lot of people want to be part of NASCAR thanks for common. We'll be right back. Alright thank you the real co-host Lonnie. Love tells her story about a confrontation with a racist up. That landed her in jail next. Explosive. How is the White House and the country reacting to what John Bolton said about the president. What happens now now tomorrow John? Bolton is lied and exclusive facing the women of the view tomorrow on the view on ABC. Welcome back line and love talks about her life and the lessons. She's learned along the way in her new book. I tried to change, so you don't have to please welcome Lonnie love. Good Morning Love. Morning Queen Whoopi. The magnificent joy, the fear list, Megan and the classy sunny hello ladies good morning good morning. I'm just trying not to I'm just trying to be calm because I just ecstatic, so thank you for this moment. Oh well. We're glad to have you, so you just gave the commencement speech. For Your School Cass Tech Right the high school your Alma, Mater in Detroit. We're in crazy times now. What did you tell them? You know I just try not to suck. 'cause I know that it's a bad time for them. They didn't get a prom. They didn't get a commitment and so I, had my little of video and I tried not to make it look like a hostage video, but the lighting wasn't right, but the message was there, and the heart was there, and it was well received, and basically told them bed. In life things happen, and you have to make adjustments, and it was well received I was happy to go back to my my town and I hope to be able to go back in person and see all the students and congratulations cast pay five, hundred and twenty of you made it through. A pandemic is a great thing. That's right well during quarantine. You've had some great conversations on your instagram. Live including ones about black lives, matter and George Floyd and we've been talking about. The black lives matter movement and stories tragically similar to Mr. Floyds for far too long here on the view, but the reaction the nation is having now feels different to me. Do you think we might see some real change this? You know what funny I believe that look you just had bubble wallace on and look at the change that one person like Bubba speaking up can do and the protests. The young people I want to say thank you to all of the grass roots activists because they are actually making changes. They're making people. Stand up and see what is actually happening and protests. Protests seen is good, but voting is really gonNA make lasting changes so I am part of a great organization called when we all vote is co-chaired by Michelle Obama and great people like Tom Hanks and Shonda rhimes, and what we're trying to do is make sure that every American has their right to have a fair vote. What you see happening like what happened? Happened last week in Georgia with the long lines. That's just preposterous and we don't need to have that so as all. Americans if we WANNA, make lasting change. We have to make voting fair and Ligo for all Americans, and that will help to make the change, but I'm proud of this country I think people are starting to listen, and that's why you feel. Feel that difference that you see and it's because people are really starting to to be aware that we're not just talking. You know black folks. Not just complaining is actually happening and when you saw on tape George Floyd lose his life and call out for his Mama Oh that may people really do a wakeup call and said well. Maybe things are really happening. I agree and you know in your new book, which by the way is just fantastic, related you through all the moments of your life. You write about a night in college when you and a friend were arrested and she was caught stealing the soda, and you try to stand up for her, and you say growing up. The effects of racism were all around me, but I didn't feel racism. Slap me in the face until that night where you talk about what you write about. Definitely I grew up in the brewster projects and I grew up in the in the projects. The police was never it was never like the community policing or anything like that so I never got to talk from my mother about how to. Conduct myself with with the COPS so when I was in college, I was about nineteen years old. me and my friend. We just got off work doing a little grocery store. Clerk and then we went to the club, and then we went and got something to eat and there was a cafeteria style. Restaurant that we went to and I turn, and I looked, and I just saw this big huge cop, grabbing her and I was like that's my right. He taken her. He took her in the kitchen so I followed her, and immediately he's handcuffed in her. He's yelling. He's cussing and he looks at me and he says you're arrested, too. And I was like well first of all. What does she arrested for? He said she puts soda in a Water Cup and I was like. Are you serious? And he said you arrested and I said what am I arrested for? He said for trespassing. Stepped in the kitchen now hindsight when I look back I'm glad that I went with her because he handcuffed us, he caught some other cops that there were two mean cops in, and it's like I can. I can think about I'm thinking about it like when I was nineteen. How scary it was and I'm glad I was with her because what if she went along? I don't know where they would have taken her. So of course I'm the big girl so here. cussing and fussing and everything and they took a straight to the booking agent, the booking place and once we got booked. It. Was it just opened my eyes? Because one, she was under a petty crime which was a misdemeanor. Because I was trespassing, it was called a Looney, so they put her in the misdemeanor sex. They put me in the section with all the murderers and rapists. People like that and I'm nineteen years old with my club close on, so I write all about it in the book I talk about it, but the thing is. Is You know when you would you get the bear balls of it? If we were to white girls nineteen years old, and that would have happened, I'm pretty sure he would've said either pay for the soda or don't do that. And what people have to realize that that could have changed my life because I had to. I had to scrape up bail I'm still in college with no money, my friend, she didn't have anybody help. Help her out. Thank Goodness I. had my sorority sisters to help. Bail me out and get the money. She had to call her parents. She was in jail for like two days. That changes your life so as things like that that I talk about that really made me open my eyes to the criminal justice system, and how unfair it is, and all black people are asking for in this country is to be treated equally, that's. That's all we're asking for. And that's what you're seeing is with the change, and that's what this book is about. This book is trying to give hope to people and give inspiration and a few laughs as well, but it's a very devastating experience, and that happened twenty years ago. This is still happening today, so we have to keep talking about it. We have to keep protesting and demanding change and fairness in the criminal justice system. Well Lonnie. Horrific story I have a question for you, but I also just want to say I'm a big fan of the real and all the work that all of you ladies do every day. This is a rough Geoghegan doing daytime talk every day and I. Just I'm such a big fan of all the work. All of you guys do, but we have a question, so the your book obviously is incredibly compelling, and you just told that story, but what is the biggest lesson that you took away from your book that you would like? Everyone watching in America to know right now. I want everybody in America to now that this is a book that's going to give you in in these times. We need hope. This is a book about hope, and it's an American story is my American story, and that's what I want people to understand. Please start journaling all of you out there. You have to tell your story. This is my story, so get a journal. WRITE DOWN! We're living in historic times. Understand that this is my story and is about hope. Wonderful Well Lonnie. Thank you for coming. To the view, so things to Lonnie love, she's hosting the virtual essence festival of culture, June twenty-seventh and July fourth her book. I tried to change, so you don't have to is available today and we of course will be right back. Thanks, Lonnie thank you. HEY WELCOME BACK! This is the end of the show, but you know tomorrow. You WanNa Watch. John Bolton saw with us, and we want you to have a great day. Take a little time to enjoy the view. Wash your hands. And you know. John Bolton. Tomorrow said it again.

All right, so here's the deal. The NBA season is set to resume July thirty first in Orlando Florida unfortunate timing, Cova nineteen cases continue to mount in the state of Florida at an alarming rate. Players have until this Wednesday June twenty-fourth fourth to make a decision whether they will play or not. Jay Williams is here with us. Joining the conversation J. always great to see you my friend. We'll get to in just a moment Europe I. Should the NBA reconsider resuming this season in Florida. Unfortunately my answer would be a emphatic, yes, and I want to preface my comments by saying Jay and Swag Goo. Let me put it. This way starts spreading the new Zhol Note. New York New York. That's where it should be I'm leaving today I WANNA be a part of it new Yo- new Yo-. That's the truth and here's the reason why. Because no one can doubt the job that Andrew Cuomo has done as governor of the state of New York with this whole in nineteen pandemic. Now there's critics that have accused grandstanding being on television entirely too much, even though I would submit all y'all his segments with his brother. Chris Cuomo on CNN been nothing short of a Larry's. The few times I've caught him, but let's be very clear. New York was the epicenter. Of the COVID nineteen pandemic in the United States of America. They are now in face to starting today. With the city is reopening in terms of flattening the curve, lowering the curve, and getting their bearings under them, and moving in a forward direction New York is what it's all about right now. Because of that man's leadership, there's no way around it. Okay, so when you take that into consideration, and you consider the most that the the. The the size I understand density as an issue, and what have you but the size of New York City the amount of hotels it has available to it the fact that people have been in the streets, but engaging social distancing wearing their masks, and not feeling strapped and damned in in prison in the process. If you take that into consideration, and you compare that to what? What the governor has done in Florida where you might have opened up a bit prematurely, you might have been too lax and might it might not have been as vigilant as some would say. You should have been in enforcing some of the safety protocols and measures that would keep your seats. Just stay safe, and now we've got twenty three different states that have spite and the. The State of Florida is one of the states that is obviously not had. They haven't had it too good. As of late I would say because of the leadership that you have here the fact that it is New York. It's Gotham city I think that would be very appealing to all parties concerned. I think it's something that should be strongly considered if Orlando doesn't work at. Stephen a Smith. There is, there is no way. That the NBA Cook Pivot with less than a month. You're talking about a multi billion dollar organization. Think about how much money it would take to then dropped all plans to do in Orlando a multiplicity a built in bubble to a degree to say hey, we want to just do in New York. You have to find a location. You have to find the right facilities as as relates to. Hotels there's there's no. Ping. Where are you going to buy say at? How you GONNA keep everybody an incline fiery. I hear you're saying so. Sounds good sounds good, but is it realistic? There's no damn way it's realistic. You can't dot in the month now I understand Reid Hoffman has said he's the CEO of Lincoln that sometimes you to jump off the cliff and a symbol, the plane on the way down, but this is too detailed a plane to symbol. After he jumped off the cliff on this one it now. There are a lot of things that worry me about Orlando. Obviously, you know Disney, allowing employees to go in and out, and not being as frequently as tested as players should be, but I'll tell you this right now. I've talked to a lot of players I live here in Brooklyn. I. Don't I won't see players leaving there. Other locations do here to Brooklyn or to New York to play in a game, and if I'M GONNA player I'm leaning towards not playing I'm sitting there watching Oh since Saturday there's when four thousand forty nine cases that have happened regardless of whether you want to tell me. Testing has increased or I don't care what the damn reasons or at least my family to have three months, and I'm supposed to be in a bubble, and now we're going to change locations in the last month. I'm leaning towards not doing this. If I'm a player in a lot of players going to be put in a situation, a lot of players may play because they need to. To paycheck, but the player in a good situation, financially I don't know if I wanted to be myself similar the plane on the way down. Especially watching all these case, numbers are rising regardless of whether you tell me it's testing going up, or people are just getting you more cases in general I I'm scared. You simply scared of your player. Multiplayer say that Stephen. Molly Molly read that question for me again. Shirt. Should NBA reconsider resuming the season in Florida specifically? Hail no okay. Listen I get it I. Understand what you're saying Jay, about the logistics and changing locations, and if that causes the season not to happen, that's unfortunate Florida ain't gonNA. Do Right for been doing right Florida was trying to come out of the pandemic before we Manila's. What the problems with the pandemic was, and put them players in Orlando in that position in that situation and I get it. The facility is great the facility to be able to lockdown mentor, but let's not fool ourselves and say that these dues not going to go out. Let's not fool ourselves. Expose be exposed to potentially a getting Kovin. Getting Corona virus in Florida more than somewhere else, possibly where the numbers are lower, so I tend to stretch with Stephen about the moving of it now I'm not sure if New York is the plays either because of the -gistically to me, that's are, but if you can find some of the state where there is an opportunity to be in one central location, where the cases are exploding, like they are in Florida then that would be my alternative and I. Get it timing. How long they've been playing in this obviously had the Disney World Wars, which is a magnificent facility. I've watched a lot of eight tournaments. National tournaments be played there. It's a great place. For me. They are not handling this the right way as we see the spike in numbers that happening so no. NBA should consider opening it up in Florida. They should consider somewhere else where they could get these players to that they can be. Facility like they would be flawed. Play Games where cases are not out of Control Swag. It's not realistic just to pivot and go to another city like that. It's not. Even the cases arising in Florida, my thing I'm leaning towards. Shut down to be fair with you. Guys and we're talking about could be open or not leaning towards shutting it down, but all I'm saying is you have to make sure there's a bubble players? You're not allowed to leave and go out. Go back and forth staff. You're not allowed to leave. Go out back and forth. We'll pay you overtime. Stay here. Security around hotels. You have to make sure things are locked. You can't allow people to go in and out. There's no way you can have that ability Steven. Naismith a won't happen and it's to. Sit there and go to a different city. Careful be careful about what you're saying. There's no way there's no way on earth that the commissioner and the folks within the NBA n beyond which obviously entail to medical professionals or whatever they just do it. They got obviously advice for medical professionals and things of that nature. Which is why you're a doctor. Vouch for the NBA plan. Let's be very very clear. Let's not be so shortsighted to believe that Adam silver name only had one plan that there was no potential backup plan. You're absolutely right. If you're talking about not being prepared and being ill, informed and then competent as a leader, and then you just throw out a plan and stuff like that, and this is all you got, and then completely reverse, and it would just month to go, but there may have been contingency plans that came into effect, because they may have been watching the governor of the State of Florida with his actions and his leadership and higher, and so, how highly questionable they may have. Played a role of spectators in terms of purview in the landscape and watch what's transpired I'm thinking about two arenas I'm thinking about the leadership that exists in the state of New York and new. York went from the epicenter to what it is now one of the. Rest of the country is trying to follow I. don't think that's something that you can't ignore I'm not add the Catholic doing. Because I work for Disney my God and Landau, it'd be great, but if not why not? New York one. I think. Vegas is only contingency plan. Vegas. Has Realistically all, but that's that's. A stretch right now. That's still stretch. But Jay. Listen. To that point, we can't. We can't like just get rid of it because logistically. We don't think there's another locate. The problem is what Florida has been doing. It ain't the being at a great Brian from the beginning to put this in the system that's contained and at a certain level, and let's not fool ourselves. J. J. Play in the NBA you go, sneak out you. Stay straight on deficit. Let let's let's be real if they go really. I play. He's lobby at J.. Teams personnel from getting out of jail a swag Stephen as We have. I gotta get. We have to stand down and deferred to Jay. Williams here I just got a text from an owner. Literally during this segment quote, there is no other plan. which would make Jay's point more valid? There wasn't a plan B whatever only a plan. A ding to what an ONA just said. It's Florida or nothing. Okay, I appreciate that. All Right? Let's leave it there I. Just want to share this with you. Guys according to Johns Hopkins the number of daily Klay, cases in Florida have increased four hundred in sixty two percent, since June first and I also just want to mention earlier on get up I. Know You on their Stephen a Marcus as well Brian. Wind Horse NBA insider joined Greeny, and he said there's going to be players in Europe that want to stay in Europe. There's going to be players that don't WanNa play because of Covid or they're entering a free agency year. They don't deal with injury or because of the social unrest in our country. Country but that the season will still resume. Obviously, that was as of this morning. We'll leave it there and honestly Stephen Your New York idea isn't so ridiculous and I love when the Cuomo brothers are on TV. Together talking about you, don't call your mom. It's hilarious all right, Jake, thank you for being with us. GEICO access to licensed agents twenty four seven, which means that Geico is always there for you.

Meanwhile some disturbing news out of NASCAR that transpired late Sunday night NASCAR says a noose was found in bubble Wallace's garage at Talladega less than two weeks after walls led efforts to push NASCAR to ban the confederate flag which they did after NASCAR released their own statement bubble, Wallace tweeted out a statement which read cart. Today's despicable act of racism and hatred leaves me incredibly saddened in serves as a painful reminder of how much further we have to go as a society, and how persistent we must be in the fight against racism as my. My mother told me today. They're just trying to scare you. This will not break me. I will not give in, nor will I back down I. will continue proudly stand for what I believe in Lebron James Standing with him as well tweeting this sickening bubba Wallace. My brother I know you stick you. Don't stand alone. I'm right here with you as well as every other athlete. I just want to continue to say how proud I am for you continuing to stand for change here in America and Sports Nascar I salute you as well. Joining us now our Marty. Smith, who does a phenomenal job covering NASCAR CSPAN He's been covering the sport for twenty years. Mardi great to have you with us here. What more can you tell us about NASCAR search for the person or person who left that news? Molly good morning the sanctioning body. It's executive level. Have spent this entire morning pouring through what surveillance footage they have in the garage, chatting with members of bubba Wallace team to try to get to the bottom of who this was now just so you know because of covid nineteen, the access to the garage is greatly restricted compared to what it would be without a pandemic. We're working at about one third of the amount of people within the garage area that we would see without a covert. Pandemic and the people that have access to the garage are for example team members of the Cup series teams officials of the sport safety personnel. Firemen Lol security and maybe some cleaning staffs that would be in charge of cleaning up and cleaning out the garage areas. Fans are not allowed. were. There were some five thousand fans allowed here yesterday. It's the first time since the Cova Nineteen pandemic halted the sport that paying fans were welcome back to the race track, but they didn't have access to the garage, so I can't say unequivocally. You can remove them from the equation, but I think you can say ninety nine percent, maybe even more than that. You can remove them from this equation. So that's one of the most troubling parts of this is that there's potential that it was someone in the sport. My prayer personally is that it was not a hard card annual credential carrying member of the sport because that would be all the more disgusting. This is despicable. This is disgusting. This is. This. Is. I'm sorry, go ahead! I said, thank you for being on the show. Listen before I asked my follow up question when you say a hard carry member for those out there who don't know much about NASCAR, explain exactly what that means when you say you hope that it's not a hard a hard carrying member. What do you mean by that? That's what. Good Morning. This is what that's. Let's like Nascar Lingo for an annual credential. Someone who is credential for the entire season by the sanctioning body by NASCAR, and that would be folks like me. Okay? Members of the media who cover the sport regularly that would be crew, members and crew chiefs and drivers, and that's actually Steven one other one other great example of how restricted the garage area is. The drivers don't even have access to it. The drivers are walking from their motor homes that they live in their their homes on wheels straight to their race cars to drive the cars. They're not going into garage area. So that gives you an idea of how restricted this is. I wanted to follow up with this question. I understand that from a symbolic gesture. You see something like this left bubba Wallace's locker. Obviously you WANNA find out who that is, and you want to eradicate that from the sport. I get all of that but I take it as a more palpable read. They're saying if we get our hands on you if we catch you, we're going to do something to you. I want to know. Do you get the impression that that is? How NASA car is embracing this situation? And what are they doing? If anything at all to make sure that bubble, Wallace is protected, because obviously, he's a huge target right now. Indeed and I will tell you quickly. I'll get to your point of immediate threat in just a moment, but this is a very interesting thing. That I've just learned from industry sources right before we came on Richard Petty, who drove the iconic forty-three car to two hundred wins and seven championship, and it's probably the most iconic face and figure in the history of the sport. Sport he has not been at the race track Stephen Since Cova nineteen halted all of sports Mr. Petty is eighty two years old, so he stayed at home well, he's coming today. He's coming today to stand beside Darrell Wallace in solidarity and I'm told by those sources that what the king said was this the most important thing right now for me is hugging my driver. And I don't think he's alone. I have not confirmed what the pre race ceremonies might look like, but I can tell you this i. have a I have a really good idea that we're going to see a show of solidarity for Bubba. Wallace, that's going to be moving and really show where this sport is now. Let me get back to your original question, right? NASCAR is not going to take this crap anymore and I'll tell you why I feel like. This is another landmark moment in this progressive movement in the past. If this would have happened I can't sit here and tell you that on. NO NASCAR even would have announced it. Darrell. Wallace Bubba Wallace never saw the noose. A member of his team saw it. That member of the team reported that he'd seen it. And then it went to Nascar. NASCAR is a senior executive staff had a meeting immediately. They made the decision as a group to put this information out. Not Sweep it under the rug. Not Say hey, we're going to handle this internally. We're going to tell the world. This happened and we're going to get this. SOB The hell out of here. And that's what they're doing right now. They're working with the with the information that they have at their disposal. Talladega has a new garage area. Fifty million dollar renovation, so you'd assume there's a lot of cameras in there, man. They're looking at all that now. They're talking to people who might have information, and they're determined to get to the bottom of who or whom this might be. And get him out of here. For for for everybody that that doesn't know more than I have known until the following time I consider my brother and we've had. Our conversations are camera our in depth conversations of trying to learn learn from each other. What we see my question to you more is you've been around NASCAR FOR SOLO? You've talked to me about the great. Your friendships with a with a number of drivers respect. Respect that you have for them and the respect they have for. You would have those conversations like you. And I have off television been like with with the drivers in the guys that are are enthralled in Nascar and seeing these moves being made in this progressive movement and abandoned of the confederate flag, and what happened above bubble wireless Talladega what have the conversations been like with you in those guys? Be Undaunted. Be Undeterred, do not let any obstacle step in your way or try to thwart this movement towards equality, and towards inclusion and embracing bubba. All you have to do is go to the driver's twitter pages to see it Clint Boyer. One of the funniest. Most engaging drivers are in the sport posted a photo just maybe an hour ago of him Baba, riding, harleys together, and he said if you with one of us you with all of us, not only do I stand behind Bubba in this venture, I stand beside him in this venture and I've said this all alone marcus. What D- what BUBBA has I keep calling in Darrell Bubba. What BUBBA has put on his shoulders is historic, and he is carrying that and he is on Dalton and he is undeterred by it took all of those other guys to stand with him in this venture to have all teeth, it and I start with Jimmy Johnson. Jimmy is a first ballot hall of Famer. He's a seven time champion. He's universally respected across sport. This guy was once the Associated Press Athlete of the year. Everybody knows who Jimmy is, even if they don't know NASCAR and he was the first guy to stand up and say I. Don't give a damn I'm standing with Bubba. And then all he recruited, he implored alone with Bubba all of these guys to stand with them. And that is what we have seen. and. This is not just some PR stunt. This is a man that they respect and that they are behind and beside in this movement. And they are to be commended for that. And I'M GONNA. Tell you something about our conversations. For those of you guys watch. After. I did I take a couple of weeks ago right after the flag was banned, I was on with Max and Dominique Foxworth. And I. There was a levels of ignorance within me about how might learn that I did not even know I was ignorant about my ignorance. And so Dominique's response to me that it was not his job to educate me was very telling and very educational. So, I called Marcus. Marcus is a brother to me Marcus and laugh together. We have crowd together. We have dined together. We have drank together and we have taken naps in the same bus for SEC nation together. We've had conversations that were surfacing about what Marcus has experienced as a black man growing up in the south. We have had conversations of depth about things that are so foreign to me. And because I know that Marcus loves me, I felt empowered to ask difficult questions that were born from ignorance that educated me to a tremendous degree. I adore him I love him as my friend, an asthma brother and I'm grateful that he took that time for me because to say it was. Educational is an understatement of colossal proportions so I. Love You and Stephen I love you and Molly I love you. All of you have been so kind to me in a moment. That's been difficult to articulate and I'm grateful for all of you. My? Marty honestly this discussion has been so illuminating and me being from the North I. Don't know much about Nascar and you have done such an incredible job. I appreciate your vulnerability. I appreciate your passion. You're willing to learn. And I'm just proud that that were part of the same team here at Disney and ESPN. Thank you so much for your time and I also want to mention that is not baske- he is taking. He's taking Kovin seriously, does it? That is a mass for the corona virus, so taking all the proper her preparations there. Yes, Yup, I like it. It's just. Young years much. As, much as everyone wishes that I went Charles Woodson on him and went to the Asca I'm sorry is a Kobe nineteen. That's news in college football with programs returning to campus in the coronavirus pandemic over the last few days. It's been reported that twenty three Clemson football players have tested positive for cove, nineteen and a large number of lsu football players have been placed in quarantine to curb the spread of the virus Kansas State has suspended football workouts for two weeks after some test came. Came back positive. As of now, the college football season is slated to start as scheduled marcus. I'm so glad that we have you with us today. Obviously, you played college football at the highest level at Lsu you cover college football for us here at ESPN and the SEC network? Do you think player should have an equal say on this season in what should happen? Yes absolutely and and look this is this is a part of the conversation that's been going on for a long time about college football. Obviously, you don't give them. Four adored decisions that need to be made by adults who have been hired to make certain decisions when it comes to football when you talk about players making the decision to go back employees during the pandemic what we see happening on college campuses across the country, you damn right, they should be involved in the decision making process and be as much of the decision making process anybody else because they are excellent ones this out there doing the job when I think about all of the things that are transparent and we see these cases take your rises, and things are happening while teams while players are getting back on campus. I'm not not think that the NC double a college programs institutions the NFL. Nba I'm not eating that they would see cases. I'm not into that. That players wouldn't get it, but I'll tell you this if we lose one player in football, one player to Kobe. It was not worth it and that is what everybody is trying to avoid. That is why we talk about protocols and shedding things down when they see cases rise. What is the plan? What does the contention play contingency play, and if we come back and we start playing the season that we see catastrophic things happen. What are we going to do? About parents that are concerned about these athletes going back on campus and playing in the midst of a pandemic Ohio state given waivers for players in. In Pairs to sign all of these precautionary things are to Avoi- a possibility of the worst possible outcome, and if there is a possibility of the worst possible outcome, the people that are that or in the position to suffer from their worst balls, Balkam should be a part of the decision making process to go forward. If they're going to be a part of what is going to transpire football season, it is simple as that is that there should be a football season. No is to say. Say that. We aren't risking beings regardless of football or not. No, we understand all of the things that come along with playing the game of football. But when we started talking about pandemic when we start talking about covid nineteen, which there is no vaccine, for which nobody really seems to have a handle on what is actually happening to certain individuals I. Get it that when you're young and your athletic, and these these percentages low and what I don't want to hear about any of that if one. One of these players suffer from Cova nineteen and lose their life. It wasn't working and the compensation won't be well. It's just one guy. No, it won't be the case. We would see T in football we dealt with. He's strokes. We with all of these things that effect from the game. This is totally different, because we still don't know everything about what this disease is so with that being said yes. They should be of decision making process, and they should be a major part of it. Well I. DON'T WANNA. Steal, alive I know you watch them. Austin. Power Movies Marcus and you Dr Evil and you see the commercial. And he was saying how about no, and that's exactly where I am, as it pertains to the specificity of the question shoot college football players have quote, unquote equal, say or playing this season. Hell? No, you know why fbis alone. One, hundred and twenty eight division, one programs, eighty five players on scholarship or financial aid that has ten, thousand, eight, hundred eight different dudes, okay, all with their own individual interests oil at least a click interest per se they. It is impossible to expect them to all come together because they're not gonNA have the same interests because the interest transcends just actually playing football. It's the program you're playing for. It's the money that's been put into that program. It's the level of safety protocols. Protocols that they instituted. What's available to you and what's not available to you and we haven't even taken into account the student body. Should you consult with players and let them know what the conditions are, and let them know what hit their concerns? Of course you should. Should you take that into consideration before making a decision short? Should we have been pushing all for the play? Is the student athletes themselves to have actual representation I, La a student Athlete Association to represent the. Short, but at some point in Tom and decision has to be made, and you can't leave that up to kids. Yes, their parents, even their apparently. As well as you listened to them, no one knows what parents interest might be different than the other. BET! It's the same thing happened in with the people that that Dean in position to make the decision, not even on the same page so to hell. I'm not saying. The players saying. They can't have the final say. They can't have equal say their leadership. You gotTa from somewhere. Somebody's GonNa make the coal. Market. This is a really important. Discussion will continue it. Day. We welcome in hip hop icon, founder and CEO Rock, the bells and actor Ll Cool J. and I want to mention they're expanding the rock the bells brand it's a digital destination now as well to celebrate trailblazing icons for social political and racial change in America Kudos to you on that l. l.. Thank you so much for being with us this morning. Appreciate it. Even. Of course I WANNA get right into it so channel forty three saved in my car. Siriusxm listened to a big fan of you and your work and I heard that powerful freestyle you put out and I was hanging on every word. What was the main message that you wanted to deliver their through your lyrics? You know. As black men as a black community where her you know we, we really grown. We truly fatigued and just tied to seeing you know on on black men and black women being killed for absolutely no reason. While you know. Mass murderers go to go have a fast food meal. By the police and we just I just felt like I wanted to be truthful answers. Come from the heart. You know it's a very painful process, and this is one of those times in life. When you, you can't be neutral, you have to choose aside. And I decided that I have to choose my people and be on the right side of history, and step up, and not just due to Hollywood to step in kind of sit back and let it unfold. From people and This was the time it just had to happen and. I'm just glad to see so many people of so many different ethnicities, religions and walks of life. You know all banding banning together in so that they could be on the right side of history. It's such a beautiful thing to see that because so many times before people were uncomfortable, speaking up afraid to speak up for various reasons so now that we've had that George Floyd's murder was like a catalyst for for great. A change in the I'm glad to see that. His death will be in vain. Always, appreciate you coming on the show. Thank you so much and just for those who don't know when you talk about mass murderers get taken a half to two fast food. I assume you're talking about Dylann roof, who went into a South Carolina Church, and murdered nine people, and then when the cops arrested him took him to Burger. King. If I remember correctly before taking them to jail, for those that did those may have missed that with that being said. Now that we are here. You have always been several steps ahead of the curve throughout your illustrious career as a rap autism and act to end. VR You've always been ahead of the curve, so as you see this movement because I don't consider it like a moment. I consider it AAC. Time meaning Tom. It's more than a moment at this particular moment in time when you see what's transpiring when we talk about moving forward. What exactly should we be after in your estimation? I think that we have to. We have a very interesting question. I think the main thing we have to be after as we have to really take a hard look at. All this legislation that is dead as wrongfully put now people away. For the same CRI- crimes that. Their white counterparts Kinda get a slap on the wrist for I think we have to. You know as a people we have to vote. We have to get out and vote. We can't just sit around and just you know a act like voting doesn't matter. Get out the vote If you don't think it matters voting case, it does matter a right but I think that that's important, so the two things that I think are important is just really leveling the playing field when it comes to legislation across the board in terms of how police takes place in the community and then on top of that. We have to get out the vote and let our voices be heard. Fill out the census. Make sure that people really know that we exist and that we're engaged. In our country. To engage. We've already looked. People have proven that we care. We've proven that we we're about it. We prove it. We Got People Donald Lines. We got different people doing different things when it comes to how participating in this movement, but I think looking at legislation looking at local election. All of those things are very important as well. I think it's. That I'll love that response from you and go of as far as vote in government and legislature, I know from the success that you've had in your career doing so much and being indoors. You know in the black community. We talked so much about May. We gotta get in the doors. We can't get into in order to influence change and seeing things from a different perspective. You being one of the guys wanted to. To icons in the black community that have had an opportunity to be behind those doors where we don't usually get a chance. How do you infiltrate and make change on a personal level in those areas where they're not allowing a lot of us to to maneuver and have success and be a part of the actual decision making process as opposed to just going out and being one of the people that they show publicly. Well I. Think I think you know in a lot of ways. It starts by being a stand up dot right? Whether I'm working with white black, or you know any other ethnicity. If I tell you do something, I'd do it if I give you my word I. Keep My word. Like with this rock, the bells platform this modern media platform it is a black owned platform, but because I'm a guy that delivers on his work, and because I'm a guy that people know is going to do what he says. He says he's going to do and. Not just words, but actions you have you know Glenn Hutchins, of North Island investments, one of the owners that the Celtics investing and you have you know mark? Cuban from a radical investments investing in you have Henry. Louis Gates the Harvard. Professor Invest In and then I'm able to turn around and take this modern media platform that is designed for Classic Hip Hop and give ownership to run DMC give ownership to fat five Freddie give ownership to salt and pepper give ownership the Big Daddy, Kane give ownership to Roxanne shot tape. Give ownership the Jonathan. The photographer who moved the culture forward give ownership to Ernie panic holy another photographer who moved the culture at risk. The graffiti artists give ownership to crazy legs wanted to break. His really is like the goat of break in and be boys, and that's what it's about so what you gotTa, do you gotTa up and deliver on the things that you say you're going to deliver when people in mind you? These people invested in this. This platform, but I am the majority owner Italy is a black hole business, so when people go to rock, the bells dot com, and they buy something, even though we may sometimes act as a middleman between US and other partners, the differences that caught it that money. When you spend that money, a rockabilly dot com is staying in the black community, some of that money, saying in our community, and then on top of that. In addition to that, I'm lifting these artists. Why can't you know a big daddy? Kane or rock him? Get the same type of celebration that a Bob Dylan gets or or Bono gets. I'm making sure that these guys get respected and treated the right way, and these women get treated the right way and I think that that's important. We have to lift our own. We have to determine what the narrative is. Not Saying like a lot of times, it's like three or four hundred years from now what we do matters histories written, but written by the winners, so we got to win in right our own narrative, not expect other people to always do. AM opposition has always been ll that you know what winning when you talk about winning. That's really what it comes down to and to me as I sit on repeated occasions over the last several weeks, I've never seen anything pertaining to black empowerment that did it speak to economic empowerment, and so it's about taking your is keeping your eyes on a problem because in the end when you affect somebody's bottomline, capitulate to what you want, because not only are you generate revenue for them? You have the ability to compromise their revenue so with that question. Question that I. Ask you this question. One of the things I keep emphasizing is the importance of targeting people who profit off the black community. There's a lot of companies and corporations where black folks are patriots, their product their brand at every single turn. If you really WANNA, make a difference. It's not just about going on. Capitol Hill which is number one on the list, but number two should be targeting those businesses and asking them. What have you done for black people? Because here is what we have the you. What are you say to that? I say you're absolutely correct. I think that you know. Take this platform like you see what what I've done with you with the big three what we're doing? That's going to continue moving forward. Kobe shoes. When you look at Rock, the bells, it's like these these big corporations. You Got Partner with rock. The bills partner rocket belts. We're speaking agenda. We're speaking to that classic hip hop customer which we speaking to their children. WHO ARE JAN Z. Partner with us. Don't just talk about it. Be about it and. This is the type of things that must happen, so you're absolutely right. We cannot fool ourselves into thinking that it got. It should be also an no dollars that is, that's a fallacy in a false. It's a false way to think about. It's the wrong way to think about things we have to have economic empowerment in the community, and we have to just, but we just have to have a spirit of generosity in a spirit that says hey I want to see the whole community. Get paid that just have chosen. Fu Hugh. Turn the rest of the community upside down and seek to change out the pockets, and that's what I'm about. You know for me. That's what it's about about getting up. Building something and then sharing it and empowering the rest of my brothers and sisters. Man? You you're from a generation before me, but I grew up listening to your music Mara what you were doing? Like in our communities, we have so many conversations. What kind of advice given to the youngsters now? What are you telling them in this time where you talk about US team and they talk about their economic empowerment. You talk about owning businesses in putting yourself in positions to be able to make decisions to uplift people that look like you, but not only that good people that want to do good things for good people. What's the conversation? Is You have we youngsters? GIM GIM advice to somebody just as out here looking for a way to do something different and have the type of success in their own minds, what they deemed success to be able to help people in their community. Push the culture forward as you speak up. I would say I would say to those to those youngsters debt one educate yourself to. It can't just be creativity. You gotta be able to execute. Is Key just like on a basketball court on the football field or any other sport execution is key. You GotTa note playbook, and then you gotta be able to execute and you. You gotta be fearless and I would tell them to not limit the thinking dreams don't have deadlines. Don't limit your thinking. Don't limit What you allow yourself to dream about really go forward, but just be educated and consistently learn be better today than you were yesterday. Be Better tomorrow than you were today. Be In the moment and really apply yourself. You know and also know that you know like me as an og, and as a member of generation X. I'm here lay bridge for you, so rock the bells. Bells you can go to rock the bells and learn you can do whatever it is. You can watch the big three and have fun. We're not looking to exclude younger brothers like yourself in the and even generations before I mean after you will look at to include all of us. We have to lay the groundwork and the foundation in the pathway, but those who come after us. US and we have to pave the way for those who will side by side with us, because this is the only way that we're going to be able to be successful, so you know when you see a brother like Stephen, h, you know what he's done how he's. You know matriculated up the barometer of success. Did his thing really took his life to another level I mean. Mean, this is the journey that you have to really look at an emulate. See How articulate, he is articulate. He is look at how you know different parts. Different members of our community have really dug in deep to take lots the next level I would encourage you to do the same thing you can do it. You can do it you sitting at home right now, you. You know I can do it. You know what I mean. Well first of all let me let me let me be clear with Marcus it right on the air right here on the airways with us. I know credit to people like L. L. because L L was coming up off Farmers Boulevard in Queens. New York Marcus five minutes away from me in Hollis Queens. We know each other till we got out, but I wanted him to his thing because I grew up with run DMC. DMC But I didn't know him, but he was only five minutes away, and the thing that I loved about it right bit even back. Then you talk about hip hop, and then you had hall pop, but you had guys like thinking I need love or Hey. Lover were boys to men and stuff like that. Then you get in to the act and business. And what have you doing what you do, so you've diversified. Portfolio and as a result, people who are critics of the hip hop industry couldn't look at L. L. Essay on that is just hard hardcore hip hop guy. We don't like them. They have to take into account as intellect and how he was making that bridge for other people so with that in mind, ll outdoor. This question you considering a Thomson, we're in. We're talking about athletes and their responsibility. We talk about media members like myself our responsibility. Responsibility, we're talking about renaissance. Man Like yourself. Who obviously leaders in our community? Those things are imported. What role must the hip hop industry play and ascension to these new tops because you know the critics from the other side or GonNa? Come at them and try to castigate and stigmatize them in order to dilute their message. What are you saying? The HIP hop industry? 'cause you obviously familiar with that I would say that the hip hop industry. They're all going to have to be some artists that step out creatively musically and talk about some things that really speak to what's going on today. Is Nothing wrong with potty music? I'm not here to tell people not party I'm I'm definitely not here to tell people not to have fun and then music when artists like little baby come out with his joint. Address and what's going on in the community with public enemy has a has a new Song State of the Union address, and what's going on in the community I mean we need that part as well and we have to set the example right like look at the end of the day it is, it is truly about putting your best foot forward. You know what I'm saying like. When when I designed this company when we create rock the bells, it was about putting up best foot forward. What steps can I take to make sure? I'm doing something for my community and not just for myself. What steps cannot make cannot take to make sure that I'm actually doing something that's GonNa. Make the future better for all of us. You know there's a saying. I I remember in in Phil Jackson's book. He said something about. What you do for yourself, you do for others I think that's powerful. You know what I'm saying what you do for others you do for yourself as well. You know so. That's why we have to think about. As we're stepping forward into this thing understanding each other having empathy, you know what I'm saying, not hating not hating because somebody else's successful. We don't have time for crabs Aboul right now. We don't have time to be playing games and having Jennifer Aniston Wash. You know what I mean you know. We don't have time for generational wars right now. We have to move forward we have to. We have to connect with each other we have to. We have to make sure that we lift each other up. And that's what I think is about also the whole modern media platform rock. The Bells Dot com is designed for that. It's not only just commerce is not only a commerce hub, although it is, you know what I'm saying. I. It's also a place where I'm lifting up the pioneers of our culture, and entreating them, and making sure that they had a level each that that so many of our other counterparts of head and other genres. This just in the US Department of Justice, says it is reviewing. The news found inside the garage of NASCAR. Driver bubble walls at Talladega superspeedway. We'll have more coverage on this at the top of the hour on Sportscenter, but I I want to get some thoughts here from Stephen A. and Marcus Stephen I'll start with you. What do you think about the US Department of Justice Investigating this? Wall although I've had my questions about some of the things that they have done. In recent memory, the bottom line is I support their move here. The reality is is that you know you got to investigate it. As far as I'm concerned hate crimes. You don't have a license to do this. Certainly was in violation of the bottle of the NASCAR. And we all know that what their position is at this particular moment in time, and you want to set the stage for basically given the ambiance, the veneer, not the reality. Reality that things are simply not going to be tolerated any logger, these kinds of things if you let them slide those comedy things that lead to more vile actions, taking place sometimes fatally against African Americans minorities this country, and so you want to do what you can to address them in support of the attorney. General of for looking into this is the right thing to do, and if you find out who did something, and obviously, if they've committed a crime, you deal with them with the full muscle and extended a little. Young which Steven A. and I think this is one of those examples of what we've been looking at socially with social unrest and protests, and this is one of the products of that the fact that you have these situations taken very seriously and I. Understand is Nascar understand his polarizing is bubble wireless and understand all the political sides that people were all in, but the bottom line is the task at hand. Hand and that is making sure that the exposure of racist people is put all blacks and hopefully the DOJ find out. This is and put this person on blasts. That is, that is what we're we're fighting for. We're trying to do because a part of equality, a part of the justice system being reform, a part of the things that a lot of black. America is looking to change in this country. It has to be put on blast. It has to be front and center the wrongs that are about some of the systems. This is a part of that, and this is a good move a good gesture and I hope it goes four through Stephen. The, person that did it is obvious sign of Eight is obvious it can be seen as whatever a hate crime it could be deemed as whatever you want to deem it as illegally, but they need to see it and go where four four of what they can do. Marketing inst- this so this is to be applauded opening up this investigation. Bottom line bottom line, Marcus and molly y'all know this. If you look at the history, see of the confederacy and I don't WanNa get into the weeds too much here, but the bottom line is least two black people at least to minorities in this country that confederate flag represent something very very heinous to us. What it represents is a group of people who wanted to go against the United States of America to go against the United States constitution because they wanted to continue to have the license to subjugate and enslave. African Americans in this. That's what it means to us so because of that anybody that would oppose bubble wallace in this particular situation. What are they telling you? It makes sense. It's very obvious, and that's why it's important for the Department of Justice to address it. No question. Appreciate that sentiment Marcus. Thank you so much for being with us today. Excellent Shell. They'll be much more coverage on sports that are regarding this next by.

NASCAR & the Confederate Flag

"So. We start the hour as we always do with headlines that you need to know, we have some breaking news here from woes. LITTLE BUMP! Back and Adrian Warden. Asking reporting panel will be looking at MBA medical records NBA team personnel expected to be asked to submit personal medical histories to a panel of physicians who would review their individual risk of serious illness did any spread of coronavirus in the NBA bubble environment in Orlando sources have told ESPN unclear. What authority of any? That panel might have him? Prohibiting any personnel from attending Orlando or Placing any limitations on them, but there some anxiety about such limitations among teams, according to sources, so one of the significant factors in establishing risk for health complications, due to corona virus is advanced age, and that's a curious thing that see how they'll handle it because remember New Orleans Alvin gentry sixty five Mike. DANTONIO Houston sixty nine. Gregg Popovich San Antonio seventy-one, perhaps all. All vulnerable to recommendations of those evaluations. We'll see how that moves forward for the NBA, but not surprisingly at this point we're going to start to see a little bit of a conversation about the. When's the house and the wise when it looks across the board of how they're going to make sure everybody is staying safe next up in the headlines that you need. Need to know, we got a little bit of boxing news. Here looks like we've got a couple of fights. Coming Promoter Eddie, hearn says rival world heavyweight champions Anthony Joshua Tyson fury have agreed to the basics of deal to fight twice in twenty twenty one. No contracts are signed yet. I fight likely to happen in the summer of twenty twenty one venues dates have. have yet to be agreed to. Both English boxers have defenses of their titles to get through for the first two fights, or for the to fights to happen interesting note that they have they have agreed to a to fight deal. So this is not just one fight between them, but will instead be a fight, and of course some sort of a rematch and lastly. Lastly as we continue to the headlines that you need to know amid a global wave of demonstrations against racism, the International Olympic Committee, said Wednesday. It would open. Toxic could let athletes make stronger protests at the games only five months ago, the Olympic body strengthened band on political statements by specifying the gestures such as taking a knee, arising fist on medical podium on A. A medal podium I should say I'm sorry. Remain prohibited, but the public stance. He's a little bit Wednesday when it's president, said the in House Athlete Athlete Committee would quote explore different ways. Opinions can be expressed during the Games while still respecting the Olympic spirit. We're in an ever changing world. It's I take your take on ESPN radio ESPN News Sirius XM, channel eighty. Eighty and the ESPN APP. You can even talk to your speech. Smart speakers just tell him to ESPN radio gets you to me. I'm Jason. Fitz presented by Progressive Insurance. All guest join us on the Shell Pennzoil performance on. We've got an important guest coming up in just a few minutes to break down some of what we're. GonNa get to next time for some. Some straight talk brought to you by straight. Talk wireless before we get to this I do WanNa. Get some thoughts triple eight say espn, eight, eight, eight, seven, nine, three, seven, seven, six I love getting your taken, and I asked you earlier to chime in it major league. Baseball comes back. Are you all in for Mardi, and? Cincinnati, what's your Major League Baseball take? Hey. Listen I think baseball fans will forgive and forget quickly and welcome baseball back. I also think that if we're patient what we learned from this abbreviated season is gonNA. Pay off down the line and what I mean by that is. maybe shorten short regular season an expanded playoffs universal d. h. personally for even know I I'm kind of an old school baseball. But I think particularly in major. League markets. Where are we love? Our Teams Cincinnati Saint Louis Excetera. Welcome back. We recognize this business. It always has been always wealthy, not different than the NBA or NFL, so I think we'll welcome back and I expect better things as a result down the line. Mardi. I appreciate your take genuinely because part of what I'm trying to do. Here is talked to die. Hard baseball fans now. You're an old school baseball guy. Baseball means something special to you and I've spent a Lotta time in Cincinnati. I know how much it means to that city. Right so I I love the perspective on it and not hey I respect the heck out of if you're willing to go back. It's your product having to hold right so if you're willing to go back to it and understand the business side of it, Kudos to you, maybe maybe baseball fans on the whole or invest and understanding in this that I'm getting giving them credit for. Let's get some more straight. Talk brought to you by straight talk. Wireless and the straighttalk comes in a couple of forms I want. Want to start by not speaking for but letting you hear directly from bubba Wallace Nascar driver, and he was on Golic and Wingo this morning, and how did a very serious conversation with the guys on the morning show about NASCAR banning the confederate flag from races? This is what Bubba Wallace said. This morning on Golic and Wingo won't answer was I. don't really see the confederate flags. I. You know I was I. do see them. They're flying. I am and inside the Infield, and you read. Some of the comments of people won't come to races of of African descent. They won't come to raise simply because the confederate flag is fly. And you look at that. It's like okay, we we we are. We are very selfish nation. After like I'm, I'll take credit I'm very selfish. but it's not about us. It's about other people. It's about coming together and and treating your neighbors like they're your brothers and sisters. We're all brothers and sisters in this world so. if it makes them feel uncomfortable. Let's just take it down. Let's just get rid of it, and it was no disrespect, but it's it's time to make. People feel welcome. That's what that's what we're fighting. We feel welcomed in this world. American community does not feel welcome and I think we can help that by removing confederate flags if it bothers them. Let's let's let's make that change. That's BUBBA. Wallace this morning on Golic and Wingo now before everybody erupts in I'll let you chime in on this triple eight say espn, eight, eight, eight, seven, two, nine, three, seven, seven six. We're going to hear a couple of different things first and foremost you're going to hear from I. Take and after you hear from I. Take I'm going to have a conversation about this with I. Think one of the Best Nascar minds. We Have Ryan. McGee so before we get to Ryan I. Want you to hear with Dominic Foxworth had to say on I take today about NASCAR and whether or not they have a duty to ban the confederate flag. Of course, of course by the way, was it the Marines yesterday? Who finally said no more confederate flags anywhere like does the US military? How would it persist this long that the US military allowed the flag? Racist flag of southern treason to exist on military vessels that were for against by the people bearing that flagged. What does this by by by an enemy army, trying to destroy our art and the flag was. It's insane now. Look the point of abolishing the confederate flag and public spaces as much as possible. It's people's rights if they want to. If they want to waive any flight, this is America after all. The ACLU defended neo. Nazis rights to waive swastikas in skokie Illinois. And so we are America, are allowed to say what you want, but but but any organization that that condones or even allows within a private organization that flag or any a arm of the government that allows condones it. That's a real problem. It always has been a problem. This is nothing new, and the point is not to humiliate white people in the south. Because I understand that many of them will tell you well. No, this doesn't mean that were pro slavery. This means that we have southern pride. But in fact, if you look at the declaration of the seceding states, the southern states who fought against the United States of America. In the civil war all of them it right in the first paragraph. They mentioned slavery right there. That's what they were fighting for. It wasn't a war of wasn't a war against an aggressive aggressive, the northern aggression or anything that's made up nonsense that the daughters of the confederacy smuggled into southern textbooks, so I realize a lot of people I'm not talking about. The people of bad will hear the bad faith actors here. You can't help them. Them whatever. They're the bad guys, right? I'm talking to people who really don't know any better, and you say well. This might have been what the confederate flag meant once upon a time to other people, but that's not the way I grew up well, the one of the things about recent events that could have a positive effect is it raises awareness of actual history not of mythology that has been passed down in the south sometimes willfully. Deceitfully so insofar again, the bad faith actors, you just have to kind of wait for them to live out their lives and go away and hope their children are better than they are, but for the people who truly don't know any better and are saying, but that's not what the flag means to me at least stuff like this will help enlighten them. Yes, but that's not what the flag actually means. Of course, there should be abandoned, NASCAR on the racist flag of southern treason. It's molly started US off right. It's absurd. They were having this conversation right now, and I agree with you Max obviously I don't think it should be illegal I gue- in our country. You can do things like that. That's that's should be legal. I don't have to like but in a business like it would seem to make sense that it the fact. Fact that it hasn't been banned up until now. It's scary, but you're making an environment that is that feels like it is I was gonNA say -clusive, but it's exclusive like the flag represents the subjugation of people and I just can't get over the people saying trying to claim ignorance like we weren't. What is a week ago now maybe less than? Than that when when drew, brees said that he didn't know he didn't understand like I feel like we're at a point now in this country where no one else can claim ignorance about any of this stuff, particularly the confederate flag at this point you can't be unaware of the confederate confederate flag means or what it stood for. You can't be unaware of. Of what it suggests or not suggest again I'm catching these words and a unnecessary way would it is clearly stating what people who wave that flag are clearly on the side of of subjugation, in saying that black people are less than human and black people should work for free like that stuff is awful to me, and ignorance is not an excuse there's. A James Baldwin quote that I looked up a second ago. That has been on my mind when it comes to ignorance, because a lot of people have been calling and texting me and saying I just didn't quite know I didn't understand how bad it wasn't. Ignorance is not to quote. Is that Eggnog? With power is the most ferocious enemy justice has, or justice can have so like I I don't i. don't excuse anybody. PARTICULARLY PEOPLE IN IN NASCAR who have power to stop this or the people in in the. In the tailgate area of NASCAR who have the power to that flag or lower that flag I just because you're ignorant does not excuse you. That is a problem. Straight talk coming right there from Dominique Foxworth straight talk wireless, no contracts, no compromise now when I want to have a serious conversation about NASCAR, there's one person on my speed dial. That's always the first person I reach out to. That's ESPN NASCAR reporter Ryan. McGee and I think it's important to bring McGee on here because we're. We have some similarities in our background. We have a lot of south. South in both of our backgrounds and McGee I wanNA start with some acknowledgment because I spent a lot of time as you know in country music, you spent so much time around Nascar. I mean I understand that I've grown up with a group of people over the last twenty years. See some meaning to the confederate flag. That's not the same as other people see that meaning to the confederate flag. Conversely those people are all white guys have different history the south right so I wanNA start by acknowledging I understand. There are people that don't agree with this argument what I'm trying to wrap my head around with is where's the benefit in keeping a flag up? That hurts so many people. That flagship being a museum. That's what I say all the time you you. WanNa, display, stars and bars confederate flag you go, display it. In a museum at a battlefield national park where you display it, in you I'm morning, Smith and I had this conversation. Back when Marty McGee was podcast in this was after the church shooting in Charleston and the debate for the nine million time came up about the fact that the stars and bars flew over the State House in South Carolina, the the Capitol Building in Columbia South Carolina. And we're both screaming to take it down and people were like Uber Tran. You know you don't understand? Yeah, understand I'm literally right now fits talking you from the coast of North Carolina just south of Fort Fisher and I had direct family members derive a direct descendant of men who fought. For the confederacy at Fort Fisher were taken prisoner of war and satin the Hell Myra, prison camp, upstate New York and had to walk home to north. Carolina was so don't tell me. About. What that flag means I I? Know exactly what that WH-. What? Their flag flew over, and that's dead and gone. That is done and should be an a museum because my people were on the wrong side of the deal, and that's why they lost in the right side one that thing and so we're talking about a war that happened so long ago so I. Don't rednecks coming at me about heritage vs hate or whatever I know exactly what they're doing with that flag. That's why that flag should be on display in museum to explain to my daughter's generation, while that flag was flown, and it was on the wrong side of history simple as that and listen. Whatever Man I. You know you and I both have been to plenty of events with with stars and bars with boasts safest face on it. Or Dale EARNHARDT's. I get all that and find. Is that days. Done is done in what I sell. The time is when I first started covering races at the Darlington raceway in South Carolina. In the mid nineties, there was a guy. Who sold confederate flags at a with this folding table, right at the entrance of the Winston Cup series garage. He knew that's where all the fans would congregate to see race car drivers I haven't seen that gun at twenty five years, and so what I've told people is that when I used to cover races, there were hundreds of confederate flags i. go to Daytona now. I might see a dozen big ones, maybe and so it's not what it was, but they still need to go away completely. You want to see one fine. You know what there are so many fantastic American historic museums around the nation where you can go, see that and learn what it's about, but I don't need to see you flying it in my face because you think i. don't understand what that fly was because I understand it more than you do. Well and we're talking to ESPN NASCAR reporter Ryan McGee. Appreciate your your passion on it, and and and what I love about what you're saying. New Museum is a museum allows it to have some level of context some level of discussion about hey, this is what it meant to one group of people in this is what it meant to another, and this is why it became so divisive rightfully so on American history right like there are so many things that you can explain in a museum. They can educate people so that we don't go pass down past. We've gone through before and so that we. We improve from that those moments when we get better as a country, what would you have? Is that context when it's just flying at a race? Because it's hurting people and I think that's what Bubba Wallace, even even in his words today with golden winged, coming in, and saying hey, the acknowledgement that if it's if it's causing that level of emotion to people, we need to just take it down if I'm Nascar. How do I not right now I mean you and I've had some pretty transplant conversations about NASCAR trying to change their image. Isn't this the perfect way for the for Nascar to step up and say we aren't who you think we are. and. Deserves so much credit because as as awful as this whole experience has been since Floyd's death, and it's also been Cathartic, and it's also been you know the grease on the rails to make things happen to give people a platform to give them a voice that had had before I wrote a story two and a half years ago for ESPN. The magazine about bubba Wallace where he talked about You know his his. When he was nine years old, had a cousin shot and killed by police in Knoxville about the KNOXVILLE. Police Department Tennessee where his family's from and where. Right after he'd wanted. I, race, and had some money, and bought trick GP got pulled over for failure to give turn signals, changing lanes and next thing. There's five squad cars and three dogs searching his car for drugs I. mean these are the things that bubble ause has talked about before, and no one heard it, and now he talks about it, and there's an audience he can call. Jimmy Johnson on the phone. Say these are the things that happened to me. Me, and that's how we ended up with that video from the driver's on Sunday in Atlanta in the pre race ceremonies in Atlanta. That's how you know listen. You cannot overstate the significance of Richard Petty's car. The number forty three, the most famous number in history. American Motor sports tonight at the Martinsville speedway just down the road from the hometown of Window Scott the only other full-time African, American racecar driver in the history of the Nascar Cup series before but walls. That car will be on the track tonight. with a message of unity, and with Hashtag black lives matter, and with that image that we see so many times now of you know the white hand in the black hand you know locked in an embrace, and you cannot overstate the significance that so I give bubble walls, credit and listen. Do your history. There was a time when the swastika didn't mean anything. It just was assemble, and someone took that and turn it into maybe the greatest symbol of evil in the history of planet earth and I. Don't WanNa hear anybody talk about heritage vs hate because I know exactly why you're flying that flag. I know exactly why you're flying. Because I'm I'm related to some of you so I. Don't WanNa I don't WanNa. Hear by side. Understand ticket now. ESPN Aska reporter Ryan McGee so if the drivers earned supportive it and seems like it makes so much sense. What's preventing NASCAR from doing it? Well nothing now I mean you know and they did a flag exchange so years ago. Where you know it was, it was the right idea, but it was Kinda. Punt, which was hey, you know if you take. This is after the shootings in. Charleston if you take that flag down. and You bring it to the souvenir area. We will exchange that we'll take that flag, and you can take any flag in the store, your favorite driver in the NASCAR. Whatever and and that that was great on paper. Not a lot of people did it, and it was kind of it was a punt and listen I have seen IRA rogue one time a helicopter with the people who are in charge of the NAS car merchandising all the official stuff and they would fly around helicopter. With binoculars and find the tenths of the guys who are selling the illegal t shirts right just like you see outside concerts. You know the guy that Sonia. The five dollars shirt that you could bought inside for forty dollars. And I've seen what they have the ability to do if it's going to cost them money. So, I would love to see them. Put that same kind of juice behind enforcing. A rule and not just a a press release decision says you know. Bring your flag to the souvenir stamp. You guys can listen to Mardi McGee Saturdays.

Shower sessions part interview park concert all from the shower. I know it sounds weird, but you gotTA check it out Grammy Winner. Saint Vincent invited up and coming artists to sing share. Get funky. Booth of the home the shower watched now at Youtube, dot com slash progressive. Like how everybody does with their shower jam right? Because at some point, you know you've done it like we all understand that. At some point, you're out there singing along in the shower. So this is your opportunity to see how everybody else does it. We're taking your take. We go through the course of the story today from I take. Obviously. We've talked a lot about NASCAR. We've talked a lot about MLS and their return, but there's another conversation that it's interesting based on. The based on an article out on ESPN. Dot, com and ESPN DOT. COM got a great article out there about the players coalition players coalition, trying to come together to make some improvements to change the world. This is sort of what we asked for. At some point. When we ask what players are doing and that's that's part of conversation every single time. Okay, they can talk about today. But what are they actually doing? To continue to try and seek change well. We're starting to get some answers to that. Because the players coalition has come together at this point, they've gathered the signature of more than fourteen hundred current retired athletes, coaches staff members from NFL NBA and Major League Baseball for a letter to the US Congress supporting a bill to end qualified immunity, which makes it difficult to sue police officers for brutality, so among the prominent athletes and coaches. Who signed the letter Tom. Tom? Brady drew brees Carson, Wentz Dak Prescott Bounce cared Alex's pregnancies about the Steve Kerr and Gregg Popovich so a lot of good information there you can check the article out on ESPN DOT. Com and the article was written by my Grassi who joins us now on the Shell Pennzoil performance line ESPN reporter, so I appreciate the time what was really the catalyst that brought everybody together to make this the moment for the players coalition to use the voices for? The players coalition. His doing various things for years and this goes back to I. Think it was two. Thousand Sixteen when Anquan Boldin went to Congress to have conversation and to lobby and if you remember a few months ago. And if feels like way longer than a few months ago, I think maybe a month. Actually the players coalition wrote a letter in Georgia to call for an investigation into the killing of Auburn so the players coalition has been involved this. Initiative where they are calling on Congress to back the Presley Bill I, think is their biggest really pushed today and I to me again. This is just as an observer. Probably the most comprehensive. been able to get as far as number of athletes, coaches, general managers executives with in the NFL within the NFL other sports, because it's not just players and coaches that are on their general managers that are that signed this letter. There are team president that signed this letter all saying the same thing that they want the end of qualified immunity in the United States and Listen, fourteen hundred people people from the sports world. That's i. that's really impressive. I think there's no other way to put it. So what kind of voice has you mentioned? They've been active before. What kind of voice are they expecting to have with this? What kind of success can their voice have? I mean I think that remains to be seen right like that. Does the question with of with everything. Right now is right now. It is a movement and it's very, it's. Very? Hard calm conversation of black lives, matter and social injustice. And racism has been very top of mind everywhere now. The question is what happens next right? How how does this sustain and to me? With the players coalition did today is. Taking action and saying hey, we are standing up for this. We think this is wrong. We want to see this change we support. This bill can enact change and everybody saying the story because beyond that bill in the Senate as well, there is a resolution that. that have been three senators and four others cosponsored basically calling for similar action to the of qualified immunity. So that to me is the. And, that's what's happening. Here is the next step to try and an effect change. It was going to be a process I don't think anybody I. It's interesting. I just listened to carry on Johnson. The Detroit lions running back on zoom call about an hour ago and he said. This could take. Years could take a decade, but. There is the beginning of possibly change, and that's what I think that this is a step towards trying to enact change and saying hey. We are here and we are making a statement that we feel needs to change. You're listening to. I take care. Take Espn Radio Jason Fitz on the ESPN reporter Michael Rosty, and then you just mentioned the lines. You've spent a long time covering that team. We've seen Roger Goodell. Speak out on Friday now we see the players coalition continuing to use their voice. I lift a wonder to feel like. There will be a different voice from NFL. Players and we've seen in the past this coming season. I, mean I think you've seen it already. Go Go to last week and players very rarely. I think what it calls that I've heard spitting and again just with the lions. There is wonderful question over two or three. To costs, today and football questions. We're very. Hit him best. They really exist I think right now, people. You know athletes they. Everyone wants to talk about this and I wanted to have real conversations. Those are happening on Zuko. There's a happening privately and people you know athletes. Everyone is making pretty public statements as well so I. Think Right now it's. Having conversations and and that's where it is I look at the manual auto videos. I don't know how many people seen them, but they've on the. He's done to doing nothing con-, Hair published. I think it was last night. Those are very powerful as well On. That's to be where I think. Things are at the moment and except to say where things are going to go next because I just don't know that and I couldn't even begin to predict that. But with that being said in the past we've seen players sort of speaking owners, not necessarily willing to what we have seen at this point organizations. It feels like that are more likely more willing to get in front of a microphone and sort of speak their minds, whether it's Chris Ballard with the colts our. Mark Davis made a statement with the raiders shot. Con has encouraged the Jags I mean you can look across the NFL landscape and say that we're seeing sort of a different level of partnership than we've seen in the past that surprise you. Honestly I haven't. I haven't been able to. Step back and give that a ton of of salt weather. It surprises me or not I I think right now. It's just people. Myself included a thirty nine year old white. Now are just. Learning and listening and trying to understand things that that we never could understand for many reasons, so I think that right now nationally, and that's happening. Sports is well. That's what's going on. And as people are learning and becoming more educated, they're speaking more and trying to express their beliefs more. And that's what I think is happening right now. and people are. Carole go after what Carrie Johnson sat about an hour ago. You know it seems like there's a lot of outrage at. Equal rates. What maybe we'll force change is equal outrage at that's kind of where he sees its I would look at his words. And kind of say, yeah. I think that maybe a little spot on. You guys can follow him on twitter at microscopy and the articles out on ESPN DOT COM, man great work on getting out there. Really appreciate it and appreciate you giving us the time to come. Anytime you knew that. Thanks my friend. and. It's really these are interesting times to me in the NFL because I'm not sure that we've necessarily seen this camaraderie between owner front office player in the past when it comes to speaking out and that again I referenced it earlier. The jags a team that don't necessarily get a ton of national attention have been incredibly unified in their words coming out together as a team to make a difference and part of the reason I feel like they've been able to do that is shod. Con has also not been quite. Quite the owner of the team in his want for effecting change was on hanging out with our buddies yesterday down in Jacksonville and set it at the time. If you're Jags van right now, you have a lot to be proud of the organization because they've come out together and they've spoken together to to try and affect continued conversation and change, and that's the importance of this when you talk about the players coalition speaking out when you talk about NFL players speaking, it's because these voices have some level of resonance. Has. To be pointed out here when you talk about the voice that comes from huge sports superstars, it means something not just fans, but it means something to society in general, if I scream something in front of a microphone, let's be real. It doesn't have the same impact of the world as if Tom. Brady says it because his voice has more power what we're seeing right now. Are Athletes Coming together to use that power to try and effect some level of change, and they're doing it no matter the sport doesn't matter if you're BUBBA. BUBBA WALLACE NASCAR, or if you're Tom Brady with the NFL, everybody right now is coming out and using their voice using their opportunity to try and effect change and make the world in some ways better. That's why I think so much of this right now. Today is a sports conversation, because when you look across the landscape of the ability to create change, you need people with the loudest voices possible to continue to press four for conversation I've said it so many times on this show. We need to in our own individual lives. Look at our web we need to. To look at people that are within our circle of influence, and we need to demand better. We need to demand more not just from elected officials, and not just from from people in office, and not just from people that run your local government, not just from from all of the higher ups that we wanNA, talk to, but from people right now in your existing world. You need to ask for more. You need to demand more well. At some point, players have realized, and they've come to an understanding that as individuals for the brand they represent, which is truly their. Their own brand as individuals, they are capable of standing up having power with their voice power to keep a conversation going because when they speak, it resonates power to keep conversations going because when they speak, it becomes news. That's players are doing right now, and we're seeing it from all sports from all angles and that I think is the most powerful difference in what we're seeing today versus what we've seen in the past. It doesn't matter at this point what sport you play. It doesn't matter at this point what your background is. It doesn't matter at this point frankly. Frankly what color you are, what we are seeing is across the board, a bond between owner GM front office player across all sports. We're seeing a bond between white and black across all sports. We are seeing bond coming together. Saying there has to be changed and that bond coming from a sports, world is incredibly powerful. I take your take on ESPN radio ESPN news. I'm Jason.

Really strong statements from Ryan Mcgee today that I think you should go listen to your Nascar Fan if you want to hear any of the thoughts on the confederate flag. McGee! McGee was spectacular today and said it better than I'll ever be able to say to go. Check it out. It's on the PODCAST. You can get it on demand in the meantime you guys can chime in triple eight say Espn Eight, eight, eight, seven to nine, three, seven, seven, six, one of the questions I asked you earlier, it major league. Baseball does come back at some point diehard are. Going back to the sport or disenfranchised, or are you? Do you understand it? I'll take your take on a Brandon Brandon from Texas. What's your take on? Major League, baseball. I Iran. Last year I've been hearing a lot of players, saying they or the fans, and they did it for the love of the game. This kind of showing their true colors. You know focusing more on the money, the more on the game bills and the fans who who support him Seventy five percent of the pay out rather take that and play the game that everybody loves, and you know not lose MLB, and Luther fans because all the. Walker. Well and next few take on a brandon I think a lot of baseball. Fans Echo that sentiment now we have heard the opposite from some. And I totally respect that, but I think there are generations of fans that are going to look at this with an eye roll whether you blame the owners, you blame the players either way. The conversation is going to make everybody uncomfortable that it became about money during a time. That's so trying for so much of the country speaking of interesting conversations. They had today on I. Take about dumb about Reggie Bush specifically, Reggie Bush in UC, and been able to re open their relationship. They've been able to hug and make up today, and that caused them reaction for Dominic, Foxworth about why this should have never happened to begin in the first place. This attempt to appear pure by NCWA and the heisman trophy and universities is embarrassing and unfortunate. It's not something that you should take away I agree with you. Don't take away trophies or titles or anything for the minor infraction that Reggie Bush had, which actually shouldn't even been an infraction like I. Do understand the interesting thing is. I would understand that. You brought this up if there was cheating. That's one thing, but we have evidence in professional sports. That cheating taken place multiple times. Nobody's taking anybody's records away or anybody's trophies away that stuff exist, but somehow in the more. Impure System, of College Athletics Somehow that impure system tries to find some level of purity around their heisman trophy, and around someone getting compensated undervalue, I might add compensated for being one of the best players of all time. He was so real it was so fun, and if a years worth of rant and ten thousand dollars is what we had to pay to get this my God. Did you guys get a discount? They were in national championship. People on the West Coast East Coast the entire country with tuning in to watch this making y'all more money. Send Pete Carroll up to go be a super bowl champion in the NFL and somehow the only person who has to pay any price for this is the the the young the young man who has put his team ahead and we obviously it wasn't. Matt, line, who? Who was the quarterback? He's not necessarily the reason why they were good. It was because in large part because of Reggie Bush. So I mean I'm happy that he's happy about this. But as we established in the first segment of the show, I'm petty. I might not accept it. My house accepted then. Come up there and give me give a speech about how stupid NCW is. Dominic Foxworth is not wrong as usual when he calls out the. For being stupid about this, and it's important to call out the NC double A. When it comes to this, because as much as we see the makeup between USC and Reggie. Bush and we joke about. Oh, well I mean. This was stupid. Remember it wasn't just this wasn't between them, and this is an NCWA rules, so at this point. It's been ten years since you declared Bush basically untouchable. At this point, but that was part of the punishment that was levied from the incident overlay as part of the rules infraction, so they required this this period. All of a sudden is part of the joke. That makes programs vacate victories. You got to give back the HEISMAN. Bush, you gotTa get back National Championship Trophies. All of that stuff means far more to the players I understand in that moment than it does to fans, because the the reality of it is, nothing can take that moment away from a fan right nothing can take away the Association of Reggie Bush the football player with UC if you're a fan or if you grew up watching that era of college football, so Wednesday was ten years to the day that the made the announcement that USC disassociated itself from from Bush so at this point now we have the announcement that. That everybody's GonNa come back together now. The real question is one of the going to realize that they should just give Reggie Bush back. His heisman I understand that he received improper benefits. Free Rent, ten thousand bucks I understand all of that. Is that the reason he won the Heisman? No, it's not at some point you can. You can take away team victories all you want, but when you're talking about Reggie Bush, you're talking about somebody that for those tiny benefits received and I do mean tiny in the grand scheme of things compared to what he could have. Have received on the open market if the instability didn't reduce the player's ability to do that when you talk about what Reggie Bush, was on the football field, who he was to US football, there's no question that the heisman should be handed back to them. I understand that they WANNA have some punishment to prevent people from doing things the wrong way in the eyes of the answer Aa, but the real punishment here should be at some point. The and CINNA belay for limiting Reggie Bush from day one, I understand. He broke the rules, but my let's not live with. With our heads in the sand, and let's realize the heisman trophy belongs back with one of the Best College football players. Any of us will ever see in our life. Play the game. It's I. Take on, ESPN RADIO ESPN news I. Appreciate you guys being with us for such a difficult conversations that we continue to move these conversations for coming up next the Will Jones going to be next, he'll tell you who the most famous player in the NFL right now is. We've been debating that ourselves. He'll answer the question next. This has been I. Take your take.

Don't do anything and we'll everyone to end the draft with Wilson and was I'm Wilson here in where, where am I am in Georgia? And it's it was sunny and hot. But it wasn't really beautiful. What can I say? I meanwhile right across the internet from me. It'll beautiful studio of the Dakotas. Version two point zero one. Mr. Scotty was what's going on? There was man, it's half Rany half. Sunny, half, all windy. Yeah. You know, I was watching Weather Channel because it couldn't figure out how to change channel on the TV for about two minutes this morning. It's kind of sad. Yeah. Well, I was pointing the remote ad, but apparently the remote receiver is on the opposite side of where the power LED is I was pointing at the wrong place, but, but they were talking about all these storms and everything going across the mid west. So it was like, oh my gosh. I wonder if Scotty is had had to get out the hip waders yet. No not. Not yet. No well hasn't been terrible. It hasn't hasn't hit us. It's mostly in Kansas. Oh well, there you go disappointment in Kansas. They must have been to the NASCAR race. Recently long-form case, we have a little bit talk about, we've got some news stories, and then, of course we've gotten incredibly incredibly incredibly. Long race this weekend that we're gonna talk about. So let's stick around for the paint scheme preview and picks for the coq six hundred the longest night NASCAR. I also I don't have this on the roundout Scotty. When we get to Charlotte, we should talk about whether a six hundred mile race is even necessary anymore. Not spoiler alert. Nope. Yeah. You know, we'll get to in a minute, but I don't think so either. So we'll we'll tell you why we think that and we haven't prepared this beforehand. So I don't know what Scott is recent isn't. He has. No. When my reason this. All right. So let's start by talking about the all star race. Man. It was a thing. It was the open. I think was a little bit more exciting the actual all star race. Absolutely was it was far more exciting. And I think that, that shows I think you mentioned it to that this, this is what was needed. This is what NASCAR races should be shorten it up. Yeah. And it gives credence to my whole thing about eliminations. Yeah. Where you can you eliminate guys you give guys the, the ability to move on. Or what have you. I think when you bring that up, I think people get more driven dramatically in a non in a very non formulated way. That's not the word of manufactured way. Right. No, no. I think that that's, that's the big takeaway from all of this. Yeah. I agree with you. And it was a rare moment where both Scotty, and I were paying attention to NASCAR at the same time and, and we're emailing back and forth about it because we're old. So that's what we do. We don't actually have a chat going Email. Each other and Wilson doesn't know how to use vox her, which would be a lot easier. Yeah. With off hockey show, and it's so much easier. Sometimes I'll actually just write him a letter in the mail it to him. And then, so five because he's pigeons will fill up, what the hell's going on. I get so confused. But, but yeah, you know, we're going back and forth. And the two the two takeaways in this is something we mentioned both these things we've mentioned on the show before, number one, nascar's has all the all star as a place to try new ideas, trying to ideas, and, you know, they've done different downpours packages. They've done too wide starts if done a basically the segments in the all star race were a main driving factor in segments in the racist now. And so they take so many ideas, they still so many ideas from the all star race. And they moved them to the regular as the only one they refuse to steal from the all star race is the length. And I mean, I just think that sixty five eighty five laps at Charlotte, it's enough. It's enough to make things exciting. That's number one and number two watching how hard these guys were racing. I mean, William Byron, you know beat Bubba Wallace. By the slimmest of margins in the first segment, and those guys were kinda close each other, but they weren't hitting where they actually I take that back. They hit a little bit then Bubba Wallace come back around the second time. He's like hell. No, you ain't taking my spot, and then it was on, and it was incredibly exciting because he had something to race for. And when you give these guys something the race for something legitimately on the line. That's women's segment. It's fun. Because honestly, you know, three races into the season getting that stage point, you know, in Phoenix or wherever is that really a big deal to a driver at that point. No, I mean, maybe at the end of the season, it turns out to be a big deal. And if they'd known that they would erase tartar but they don't know that right now. So if they win it they wanted if they don't they don't. But here it means something. Right. And so Bob is fighting his heart as he possibly can, and then collars, and, you know, he drives away with the last segment, and as watching these, I'm like, man, you have nailed it. When I say you I mean Scotty. That if these guys knew that if they didn't finish twenty fifth in the first segment or they'd been finished fifteenth in the second segment or twelve in the second segment that they weren't going to the next round. They didn't have a chance to come back and win the race. These guys will raise hell of a lot harder will be a hell of a lot, more exciting. And if you think about every single one of the most popular shows on TV, they all involve people getting voted off. They'll involve people getting eliminated so why not have people get eliminated in the NASCAR race. I'm watching those guys fight it out knowing that if they didn't finish, first they weren't going to the all star as they were racing, like they had something in the race for even though there was no money or very, little money on the line in the open. And I think that one of the biggest things here is that it would almost lend to them having a short in the race for that last same because there's not enough cars there. Right. And I think you would have to, and I think people would like that too, because then. A true sprint to the finish. Yeah. The thing that they do wrong with the the, the segments. Is that the last segments the longest where you would think it would be other way round. Whereas the shortest. Yeah. And of course you know, got us talking about the regular races every week. Yeah, yeah. Where you would start. You think of last segment would be the first segment, and then the middle save. It would be a little bit shorter. And then the last thing shorts and we don't work for NASCAR and it shows I know. Right. And as exciting it's exciting as that first and second stage were in the open with William Byron in bubble Wallace both winning imagine how much crazier that would have been at Bristol, or martinsville, or even in the place like Phoenix, or Dover or Darlington, where it shorter where these guys don't have a chance to get out there in front so much, or they run into traffic. And I mean, it would just crank up the intensity tenfold because it Charlotte, you'll have a lot. I mean, there's not a lot of rubbing anyway, but at a short track, where there is a lot of action to begin with. Then you throw in, you know that cutoff where if you don't make it your out. I mean you would see some crazy crazy stuff. I think in Rhode courses to you or that on there as well. Yeah. Totally. I mean I it just it just makes sense, which is why didn't ask car will never use it, exactly. But one one thing they will use though. Twenty minute insurance. Listen, I don't know about you, Lord. I don't know about you. Those were great. Oh, cheesy THE lady reading, I did not realize that bubble. Wallace was from mobile Alabama mobile mobile. Yeah. Yes. Station three bars. Listen. Oh, god. Don't teach a lot of things in North Carolina and not playing the public school systems. And the seventy five hundred people at the race were enthralled by the intros to listen man, they were all in the infield linen happened and Bubba Wallace did the stone cold crush a couple coke stat was actually cool. I that was the only thing cool out of it. And then also there's a little jump up pump thing I don't know what the hell that was. It looked great to at a title belt on which I respect completely. Everything else like the other ones, the drivers, just showed no personality. They just walked down, and they were thrown hats into the thing. And doing the thing is there's no fun in NASCAR. No, there's no fun in NASCAR anymore. No, there's not. And rightly wrongly it is what it is. I don't think it's a big deal right now. By, but don't highlight them with a twenty minute long set of intros for forty five minute race, if they don't have any personality to share well to, to that into let's not get the substrate DJ sub rated DJ, EDM beats she listed. I really I enjoy a little German basis as much as the next guy, the point is this, though, you can't do that, for that event, you have to cry like do it, like, if Bristol where they have their own little walkout do that way. That would be read. Well, I don't know why they don't do that. Why they don't let each driver pick their music. I mean, they're going to forty minutes then. Oh, no. I would have been. Absolutely I would have been. Yeah. Both. But what about Bubba Wallison this thing man? Okay. So not only did he have was the only interesting driver when it came to driver and chose but that's second segment. And then, of course, right after the second segment knowing the, the history of those guys have just been terrible. He's been having problems off the track. And then he instantly. Well, no not instantly once again proved that he is the Chris cagle of NASCAR by by simply getting out of the car and crying. But it didn't matter that he got out of the car and started crying, the man was racing his heart as he could. And we know he's been racing as hard as can. This was proof. You know, he said that last week, he was, like, you know, I'm doing I'm racing his hardest come trying as hard as it can the car just won't go any faster and then we saw proof of that, because you take out those nineteen driver's Ed to can't get by every week. And he is racing the wheels off the car against some really good drivers and I mean, you've got the emotion of that, and then he was the owner. Driver really showing personality on the intros, and it reinforces two things. Number one that NASCAR is doing enough and number two to, to promote him and drivers like him and number two, where are the sponsors? I mean, I don't understand where the sponsor wide sponsors. You're staying away when he the range of emotions in the span of like forty five minutes. Yeah. I mean. This is a guy who needs to be highlighted more. Yeah. This is a guy who is an underrated because of all the all the problems. He's had. And I think adds fuel to the fire is the sheer fact that we don't know what's going to happen with Richard petty motorsports supposed to have this big, big announcement that as of Thursday as we record this nothing's hasn't happened. Watch it as we drop this, this podcast hours later. They announced that they're, they're actually going to be forming an IndyCar team and wanted to five hundred this weekend. Exactly. Oh, yeah. I don't know what to make of this. I don't know what better. What can they what can things do what can anybody do for Bubba walls of this? I mean, the best thing I could happen for him is that he gets to go somewhere else to race. But where I mean, the question now that's the problem. I, I don't know where you could you could do it. You know, Hendrick full up Gibbs full up Stewart Haas. They're full, you know that, that's the hard part is finding a decent car. Maybe Richard Childress could take a flyer on him. Although now they've got him Rick. So that's not going to happen. Yeah. I mean I it's, it's, it's a but it's almost the same gear that they have. Now, you know, you know what I mean, because because they're getting technical alliances from our CRM now. I got it. I got it. Twenty-one car would brothers. Komo. And Paul Menard is just paying pulmonary copays way anywhere. And then now he gets into a legitimate Penske backed ride and can show what he can do, just just like Ryan Lee needed. Yeah. I mean, it's, it's a situation where but you get rid of Paul Menard, who hasn't been racing terribly. No, he hasn't been racing terribly. But you have to think about it as a long play. You know, if scissors nowhere else for Bubba to go though, the worst part about the Ryan blaming situation with brothers is that they couldn't keep him because once he showed that, yeah, he can handle racing the series, then Penske was like, no, no. You gotta come up. We got to put you in the full car. Well, now, I don't think the Penske's going to go to four cars anytime soon. So now Bubba gets in the twenty one car he proves he can do it. Now. The brothers have somebody they can build around for a little while. And I think that's the advantage of he brings that Paul Menard doesn't Pullman in sponsorship, money. That's huge, huge avantage. We all know that. But I don't think the pulmonary brings the long term potential that somebody like a Bubba Wallace does. No. But I mean it's an how long? You have to wonder who's going to give him the money like because I guess, Penske, yet it still has a side deal with them for a side deal with Menards have Menards on the are that way. And they put them in that ride. Yeah. You might risk losing that woman, you're right one way or the other. I mean, the sponsorship is going to be the problem. If if Bubba Wallace had somebody who was one hundred percent committed to him sponsorship, wise. Then he might be in the twenty one car right now. And perfect example of that is Daniel Suarez. Daniel Suarez has the backing of a billionaire with a b in Mexico. They've got a good relationship with ARIS. And so errors was like, yeah. Let's make this happen. And of course, then that billionaire could talk to his business friends, make some connections. And now all the sudden you've got a good sponsors coming along with him stored Haas's. Yeah. Sure, we'll have you because you've got good sponsors coming along with you, which is the problem. They were having with Kurt Busch was getting committal from multiple sponsors. That's what I'm saying. That's got to do a better job because they've got somebody that can genuinely market. And somebody who can genuinely drive the car. He just needs a better car to drive. I mean, I would say that it's Alex Bowman part to accept the, the upside is as high or maybe even a little higher. Maybe maybe but at least as high, I think. I think it's as high if again. Right. Great equipment. But at the same time like. He didn't. He didn't run terribly. Well, annex Finnity. He didn't run terribly well in trucks was okay and trucks us. Okay and trucks, but again he had good equipment. But he didn't run away with a series. He didn't run away with it. I mean, he he's, he's, he's an okay driver. He, he is a better personality. I, I think in a good car, he could be better than danika who didn't never have problems getting sponsorship. That's true. And was in a similar boat in terms of uniqueness in the sport. Okay, I'm gonna stop you there. Yeah, a pretty white girl is going to get a lot more play. Many young black man. We, we all know let's not. Let's not act like we don't know. Yeah. Goddamn demographics here in life. Well, I know. But still, I mean, you know, it's still when you think of from a business perspective from a sponsorship world. I mean you can reach a different community. You can reach a different set of fans with both those drivers and won shouldn't I guess, once shouldn't be less valuable than the other. But in the eyes of some, I guess, one is some are less marketable. It's not say, less valuable less marketable less profitable. We'll go that. I just, you know, I I don't see it either. I don't know why people haven't jumped onto it and maybe it's because people in the business community. I think it's the sport itself NASCAR has reached its peak. It's reached its bubbling point, and the bubble has burst it and they don't know how to get out of the tailspin. Yeah. And I think that's a huge huge situation because you have to question leadership and leadership is too stupid to know their own prob. Uh-huh. And get out of it. You know. And case in point there, you've got to, to I think major might moments in this race outside of collar someone in the whole thing, you've got that moment with Bubba where he fights his way to the next round. Then, you know finish fifth he finished fifth in the in the frigging all all-star race after that. In fact, all the guys who've raised their way and didn't do too bad. Well William Byron accepted. But Bubba finish fifth caller, someone's the whole thing they risk their way. And then you've got the Boyer Ryan Newman thing, what gets more press on NASCAR dot com. What gets more play everywhere. The Clint Boyer. Ryan Newman thing, even though was way, less of a thing, although we're going to talk about it. Yeah. I mean I because everyone loves a fight. Yeah. Nascar should be giving them equal billing though, or they should be. They should be pushing those two things, and they should be pushing the story at collar Sohn, who has struggled all year long, and then turns around and finally breaks through in the race that pays more than any other one out any other one but pays almost as much as any other one but, but here here's the thing and I'll read a break this down for the millennials out there. Yeah. What will get more play Sunday, long read where you have to look into it, and then go through the history, and go through this long drawn out, tail or fourth floor. Yeah. Yup. Of, of Clint Boyer with his helmet on just throwing destroying lefts and rights to possibly come ical music being put in the background the post. No. You get more play because it's easier to digest, it's going to be the fight. You're right. And, and honestly if the fight hadn't happened, but there have been a huge wreck same story, you know, where the huge wreck you know, three seconds on Instagram would be a much bigger play. You're absolutely right about that. Yeah. I'm just I'm just being like I guess overly philosophical, I guess. Yeah. You'd like the tail and I like the tails. Well, I think it's good to be told, but we also have to be realistic in this culture, where social media has killed all our brains. Exactly. And what's going to get the? You can turn you could turn Clint Boyer Ryan Newman fight into a gif or you could turn it into a vine or a tick tock, because vines dead, you can make it Instagram store. You can make this that and the other thing you can't do that with, with, with a kid growing up with a kid with a kid going through rough stuff going through trucks, having his xfinity team close up. All this other stuff, not be able to get sponsor a guy who was hot to trot, then gets a new car car. None of the manufacturer could do stuff. No one cares about that. Tail if they can loop that gift on their website, even better. Yeah. I mean, honestly, if Jimmy Johnson had gone out and win this race after his, you know, now, seemingly endless losing streak, the Clinton era Newman thinks would have gotten top billing Europe. Yeah, you could ahead you could ahead mortgage shepherd somehow get his way in finish second just because Kyle bumped him out of the way. The fight would still get more pressure. Honestly in all honesty. Why were they fighting over twelve in the all star race? Not even twelve in the championship race twelfth or the Daytona five hundred twelve in the all star race. They're too old hillbillies. I don't know. I guess Trigon like you who's the like it. And it was stupid to, like, I don't know if you guys were even close to stiffen a million. Yeah. Oh, yeah. I could see it of one do wreck the other to win the million bucks. I could totally see that, right? But I mean be justified and it's fine. But you're you're twelve place man. It's twelve place and then Clinton not taking I was already to golf on Clinton not taking off his helmet. But Tony Tony. Stewart beat us all to it. Because smoke Clinton boyer's team owner and boss was like texting said he texted him right after he saw the video was like, do you see if if you're gonna fight? You gotta take off your own it, man. You gotta take you can't start a fight and then leave your helmet on. Yeah. It's not good. It's not great look. Yeah. And it's a it's a Bs look Clinton. There wasn't time and it's like dude, if you're going to start a fight there was Tom, you take off your home address, chased forty five minutes to get out of the Hans device. Wait. I mean there is time for Ryan Newman to take off his helmet was he took off his helmet tug on the steering wheel gloves. He was talk. He was doing the post race thing. And then here comes a psychopath. Yeah. Then I don't I didn't know this. But in the interview of Tony Stewart, he was like, I can't wait to see what happens because those two have an autograph session at a bass pro shops on Thursday. And now I have not seen any stories on NASCAR dot com about the police being called. So I'm assuming it went down. Okay. Oh, no. They have video of, of it on NASCAR dot com about how great it went. And how jovial when they had people had boxing gloves be signed by both of them. Lord. I kid you not. That's what happened. Yeah. I see the video here. I'm looking I'm not watching the video itself because Elamine my, my terrible internet here at the hotel, it will make it just crash. But I see the gif of the, the thing. So overall, what do you think of the race? Good bad indifferent. I thought like I said the open, I think was the best. Yeah. All-star race could give her taken. It didn't is there was no element of. There is no real urgency except for like the stage is being shorter. What have you? But overall is just like a normal short race like it wasn't anything special didn't have those the mass rules like they had at the turn of the century. It was a bizarre situation that I wasn't like it didn't I wasn't invested in it, but I wasn't completely turned off by it. Those first two segments of the open. That's when NASCAR is hoping for every single lap, I think is what they're hoping for. They're, it's, it's unrealistic expectation. But it just goes to show that if you put something legitimate, on the line for them the race for they will out there and race for it. I don't know. I will give NASCAR a little bit of credit because guys were able William Byrom was able to pull up on Bubba. Wallace Bubba Wallace was able to hold the lead there while they were side by side at the end with Daniel Suarez. And I don't know if that's because the addition because of the additions to the rule package or not. It's so hard to tell nowadays because they change it so much, and they were trying those ducks in the hood, which I thought actually looked good and then some stuff underneath the car, but the sample, there's a sample size. I mean it's just you don't know if it just happened to be very good to segments because guys had something the race four or if the aero package was making part of the difference. I don't really care because I honestly think if you give them something the race for the whole race hard for you'll see more racing like that. But I think I, I think that the open was by far the best. I think the also race was okay. But I again. I'm always going to gravitate towards something like the also race that short. And there's something big on the line as opposed to what we're going to see this weekend, where it six hundred miles and five hundred and ninety two of them, really don't mean Jack squat. So I, I mean I always have to like the all star race more than I do always like the all star race Moore because they get to the point. And that's all you need. You need just need to get to the point. And that's all the matters. Exactly. I don't I don't get why we there's a necessity to go ahead and make it happen. And we need we need a long race along endurance race because that's what people want no one said anymore. Segment winners William Byron. When the first one I was like, oh man if at that point, I was I was mad the Bubba dim win. And then, of course, he came back and won the second one, and then I was mad, the bubble one, the second one, because that means Daniel Suarez didn't win the second one and I had swore as a collar, sin and Bowman winning the segments. But then Bowman wins the fan boat. I guess it wasn't surprised by that. You know what I'm a little bit. A little bit supplies because Alex Bowman doesn't have that much of a presence social media wise. I. No, he doesn't. I think it's more Eighty-eight MO Jo, don't you? A little bit. You get some using Dale jR stroke. And you're good to go. Yeah. I think that's really what it is. But, but at the at that point, we don't know you know, I don't think William Byrom would have been the top vote-getter bub-bubba Wallace color. Some might have been colored. Vote-getter but yeah, I was surprised because your guy Daniel swear us he he didn't win the vote. So he wasn't at least fourth highest, right? And that I picked not Stenhouse, who the pick it wasn't you pick degree to. Oh, yeah. Oh did. I, I think he did. Oh, wow. Okay. Well, he wasn't fourth-highest either so picked. Yeah. Maybe it did. Maybe I did trying to find his yet. You're, you're high strung on D burrito. Interesting. You have the. Did you had Bubba? Bubba bubba. Okay. All right. And so we don't know, we don't we don't know if Bubba would have been the highest vote, getter or not because he to segment. So. Right. So release says numbers though, you know I thought they did. But I haven't seen them yet. Most popular drive most popular driver. Yeah. And, and they don't release numbers for that. Just the like the top vote-getters if I remember correctly. But I probably don't. So just chill read it if I didn't remember it correctly. Hey. Yeah. Yeah. So how do you wanna take a break, and come back talking about NASCAR hall of fame all that stuff? Yeah, we should probably do that. All right, sure, we'll talk to you in the break about two, okay? Cool. So we'll take a quick break. When we come back, we're going to talk about the new NASCAR hall of fame inductees. We're gonna talk about potential rumors petty. We don't know what the story is. And then NASCAR making, I think a move that is either position to help them. Make bigger schedule changes in twenty twenty one or so they can sell the whole thing. And let's hope it's the latter, not the former. So stick around. Racing takes skill concentration and talent, which is what? Only talk about in the draft Wilson and was. Welcome back in the draft with Wilson and was I'm Wilson that is the Woz man. And I don't know when they decided Scotty to do. Qualifying on Thursday for the coq six hundred I guess everybody just wanted to go home and have a barbecue before before the weekend starts. You know, you can't you, you know, Sunday, although they don't have Monday to work. So Sunday, they could've done and after the race like we usually did it Richmond. So we, we have qualifying qualifying dawn and William Byron on the poll. Lord Byron law. Myron known poll. I'm Erica moral Kaba Austin Dillon Kevin Harvick dania Suarez. Joey Logano boy a Ricky Stenhouse junior. And so there is this top ten. Oh and Henrik Emerson. Yup. Who slowly crafts himself a second half to? Remember, if he can actually get shit going. Yeah. He's starting to look better and better. Oh, and by the way, not only is starting to look better and better. But I will we were both kind of iffy on the paint scheme that those are CR cars were running out there for the also recent I'm assuming they'll be running again this weekend, coach six hundred. They aren't there. Those, those gold schemes way better in person way way better on the track. They, they were extra pretty cool. I liked them. They look they look good under the lights, but this week they are not raining. They aren't they should Austin Dillon's running a coke zero scheme and hammer X running a reverse Cessna Beechcraft scheme that might be. All right, then. So if I get the internet to work in my people to see him can, I also say, now we you and I have always had a love hate relationship with the website. Jay ski no. Yeah. Sure. Once ESPN took him over probably the worst move ever. Now, the they're back. And they're as whatever is ever I for one glad. Yeah. I think it's nice to have all the news in one little place that we can steal from. Exactly, exactly. Yeah. No, I mean I don't wanna go searching for those articles everywhere again. And that's all they do is search for articles. But hey, they're getting paid for it. So, yeah, I, I don't think I don't think it's a bad thing to criticize the fact that they're or not really criticized. I don't think it's bad thing to point out the fact that all they're really doing is copying pacing articles because they're doing it. Well, so welcome back. I'm glad back, you know, metoo totally him. Now, if they have a patriotic coming up soon, I probably won't donate to it, right. Yeah. Because push comes to shove if you're talking money or else, you gotta look at my own articles. I'm looking at my one articles, but I will do that. But I do appreciate the effort there. They honestly when it comes to helping journalism in NASCAR do far more than NASCAR has Christ. Yeah. I mean, that's when they were an ESPN they did more. I know when asked what used to be on it back in the day. But then that back in the day was way back in the day, they were on in helping us get good content. You know, and, and finding good content has exactly so. All right. So let's talk about NASCAR hall of fame. The inductees were announced just the the other day two days ago. Forty-eight hours ago. Yes. Big shocker Scotty. Tony Stewart is in what how I know beats the heck out of me. But, I mean, what's he done a couple of companies three three Cup championships? Yeah. He's a has a couple of minutes owner and has a championship is owner driver. You know it could hip go two thousand eleven ma'am. So you got him Bobby Labonte course two thousand Cup champs ninety one xfinity chimp to that gets forgotten a lot. And so Bobby and Terry both going to be in the hall of fame. I am. I am the guy. The guy won two championships has got to be in. He won a championship in each series. Yeah. I why is he got to be in becau- honestly, because they're going to run out of people to put in, if they don't share chain? Absolutely. I think there's other people in the old school that are wrote those Irving than him. I think Bobby the body kind of tarnished his career as he started to become like mercenary garbage teams. No, you're right. But, but then his brother did that too. Sure. But by that time he had three championships and he was good to go. Yeah. The body had had a decent run. A Gibbs won a championship. I don't I don't know. I mean obviously he was going to get in. I don't know if he goes in. I mean it seems like it's a Gibbs love fest who've really in this, in this goddamn, pull. No, it really was. But, but Bobby Labonte had a very important place with that Gibbs team. And, and when you look at it that way, then his impact in that championship means quite a bit more because Dale Jarrett. He won the Daytona five hundred for Gibbs racing but he didn't wanna championship for Gibbs racing. Then here comes Bobby Labonte. He wins that championship for Joe Gibbs racing and that really helps propel them into the juggernaut that they are today. I suppose. Yeah. So I mean if you look at it that way the contribution goes a little bit further. I mean, could you argue right place? Right time. Yeah, obviously you could. But he still got it done in, you know, for team who had never wanted championship before. So, so I'll give them a little bit. I credit for that. I give them credit for that. That's fair. Then you get buddy Baker. If you wanna controversial guy, here's. But here's one buddy, Baker nineteen couplings. That's at nineteen wins championships, seventy buddy, different seven hundred career races over thirty three years. He was the man before Terry Labonte was the iron man. And the thing about a buddy, Baker is his personality was kind of one of those larger than life people. And he was ubiqu- ubiquitous with the sport. I mean he was this guy that was always there and always in the mix and, and always had an the fans had an affinity toward him because he was like them. And it's something that NASCAR sorely, sorely lacks today are drivers that really truly can relate to. Your average everyday fan and more than that. I think he was voice of NASCAR. Yeah. He was a voice that people remember. Yeah. Because TNN TIMMY gold down, and they, they were always there. And I mean he did suffer CBS TBS, like he did a lot of things. And I think overall he was he was more. I think he should be more -membered or will be more remembered for his commentating side of things rather than his racing side of. So he's in despite not having a championship, but that's fine. I think that's fine. Then, of course we get to non-drivers in coach Joe Gibbs for Cup series championships, starting with Bobby Labonte. He's right then to for Tony Stewart and one for Kabushiki to xfinity titles with oh Suarez. And then who was two thousand nine two thousand two thousand two thousand nine crack. Oh, no. Before the dole. No. That's right. Yeah he was up there xfinity champ. Let's see should really let let me look that went off. So your computer doesn't know. Kyle. Oh, here we go. Two thousand nine yeah you're right. Kabua's sorry. You're right. Yep. Yep. Yeah. So that that's after that they're just like, all right. Let's not let's not do this anymore. So so six championships three hundred twenty three NASCAR victories. Yes, he's not on the level in that sense of Rick Hendrick. Right. Or, or Richard Childress who are both in the hall, but they both got in the hall of fame before him. And I think that what Joe Gibbs brought has has brought to the sport. In addition to just being another big team is a proven, you can be an outsider and come in and develop a you'll have to be born into it or have been in before it got big. That's number one and number two brought in a lot of new fans from outside the sport because he brought a lot of football people with him. I think a little Br. Br brought a decent amount of new sponsors to him beforehand, batteries before that. Fedex is. Well. Yup. Brought FedEx in a big way and then, you know, with Stanley and Deloitte, heiress and everything like that. And it's such a short period of time to that team didn't start until what ninety nine. In late ninety s. Yes. Yeah. But so so less than less than twenty years, there about twenty years, and they're doing doing that. That's pretty damn good. I'll Alanis and you bring up a really good point there, because I think more than any other organization as a whole Joe Gibbs racing has done the best job of not just keeping long-term sponsors. But keeping long-term sponsors through all this mess that's going on right now. Ninety one ninety one. Okay. Yeah. No, that makes sense because what is in ninety two. The, the Dilbert won the five hundred. I don't know that sounds right. Don. They were hit with dandy, Don Meredith, which is very bizarre. Pairing between Joe Gibbs and dandy, Don Meredith. Of course. I remember Don Meredith. Yeah. They're the ninety seven is right. Kind of that, when they took off when JD kind of started to make the construction of the team and make it out his own. And I think that's as much a Joe Gibbs racing as a whole getting into the hall of fame as much as Joe Gibbs himself because because, you know, or or the family, the Gibbs family being in. Yeah, absolutely. Because because because when he went back to football. I mean it was basically JD team. Yeah, yeah. Look after and and how about that. I mean he's in two not one but two professional hall of fame 's pretty dope. That's impressive and into of the most popular sports in the United States to well at one of the time at one point they were one to, you know, God, I forgot Joey the gun or in the two-car before he joined the twenty car, and it's a reverse paint scheme of the Home Depot. I'm looking this Olympic pedia page. And also to me yet. I can't read them. Remember that car? It's it was a black. It was a white primary car with black striping and then the, the orange numbers and the orange. Go figure very weird and then what don't Wilson is the final nominee our final inductee three time Daytona five hundred winning crew chief, he won an eighty with buddy Baker, and AB three eighty four with Kellyanne borough. And then he was also great legendary engine builder for home or Holman, moody, sixty sixty nine he will the his engines when the championship with David Pearson Seventy-three, his engine when the championship with Benny Parsons, and it's always good to see somebody behind the scenes. I mean obviously, Joe Gibbs is technically behind the scenes, but we all know who Joe Gibbs is right? But here's a guy who came up as an engine builder came up behind the scenes as a crew member, and then took over as a crew chief. And so it's good to see somebody like that who represents the building of the sport get in the hall of fame. And I mean, again, we talk about long short longevity and doing it in a short time eighteen years, three championships. That's pretty damn impressive on both sides of the scale as an engineer. And then as a check upon on top of the pit box. It's pretty good. Pretty good track record for him, pardon the pun, if there was a pun there. I don't know. And I say, yeah. Okay. Yeah. Say no, no. I thought it says something wrong planet, did not good thing. I mean, I'm sure I've said a million things wrong during this. We will have to check the sub it for them. Yeah. But yeah, exactly. They'll tell me they'll, tell me so art. So let's move on to the next thing because this was the second big second biggest story, I think of the week made me mad that I had not bought any stock in icy. I've been thinking about it because I knew this was going to happen, but NASCAR is officially making a bid to buy International Speedway corporation. So basically the France families like paying itself, I guess I don't know they're spending two billion dollars to do it. So if it all goes through, and if it all happens, they'll pay, what someone like forty five bucks, a share all the shareholders to get their shares stock back and then NASCAR the sanctioning body and the thirteen tracks of ice on all of their properties will all one. Percent be under the same roof right now. They're technically physically under the same roof, but they're not the same business. They will all be the same business. And there's only two reasons that I can think of that they're doing this. Number one is because the schedule is gonna change so much in twenty twenty one that means that I see probably SMI's well are going to lose races, or races are going to be changed to things like, maybe the Pocono double header, things like that, where they're losing physical dates on the calendar. And when you do that, and you've got a bunch of shareholders that you have to please. You're telling them. Yeah, we're taking millions of dollars off the board here. Then they tend to get mad right? But the reason that NASCAR needs to do that is to trim things down to be able to move forward and make more money later on down the line. So by buying I ac-, it will allow them to make whatever changes they want without having to answer to anybody or without having anybody trying block. It says number one, or it could be a moved position. The selling of the sport as a whole instead of buying this car. Now you get NASCAR and you get all whatnot. All of you get half of the. Attracts you get thirteen of the actual properties that are making money off the tracks. So if you bought NASCAR you could end the contracts. So if you could say screw everybody else, we're just gonna run the race. The racing series at our tracks nothing else. And so that gives a potential bidder the property it gives it the series, it gives it the sanctioning body so that might make it more attractive, or they could use that whole group package to try and attract a minority investor, you know, instead of shareholders, somebody who comes in with a large influx of money and maybe marketing ability, maybe the partner with Comcast or some TV organization. So there are a couple of different reasons they could done this, and one way or the other. It's a good sign in general because it means that something big is going to happen down the road. We can only hope that big thing is that they are packaging it all up to sell it to someone who cares a little bit more. He's still buy shares International Speedway corporation forty five fifty five as you'd lose. You lose a little money on that. This lose fifty five cents on. Share? Yeah, yeah. So they open it forty five bucks. That's all I mean, that means a Brian Francis like madly buying right now. Because that's about his intelligence level. Xactly. He's ready to go. Yeah. So there's that we, we did it. We did. We did that news thing. I don't know. I mean, I think it's, it's the take your ball go home kind of thing. But if you sell the thing than sell the race tracks with it, I think that's the best option. Yeah. Get out while the gins good, man. There's no reason to stay in this. If if, if you have no new ideas, or the new ideas, you're doing it make minimal success. And you don't care about the product, then we gotta worry about your sanity down to, you know, and then go from there. I think you need if only they could sell it to a TV company broadcast company, that would bring in people who are thinking more marketing wise, as opposed to, you know, just trying to stay old and steadfast while they changed the weirdest things they can possibly change the maybe we'll get some more. On the track because of the format not, because we're artificially trying to make the cars, you know, all race within two inches of one another. Yeah. I mean it's, it's, it's a full thing. You can't just have that highlight moment you have to go for the full month in, they haven't done them. And one thing that I thought about when I read that when there were suggestions of maybe a minority investments like, maybe, maybe what they're going to try and do is have SM I who was in talks to go private as well. Maybe if SMI goes private anti-ec goes private, then they kind of merged together and become one huge entity that would be NASCAR and all of the tracks save for Dover and Pocono. And then if I were running Dover Pocono, I'd be really, really scared at that point. Maybe I mean I mean they're. there to racist, this try racetracks that serve the purpose do Dover. I think it would be safer then Pocono. Yeah, because it's always bleeping rains and Pocono, exactly. So I mean you can't it's the it's the rain on international. So petty motorsports. No announcement as of yet. Is it is? It is ten thirty eastern time. He m one Thursday. The twenty third is we record. Yeah. So who knows? I mean there are rumors that like we talked about last week that they're shutting down. There was a rumor that, that of all people like Kenny or Michael Wallace. Well, one of the Wallace brothers was pushing that they were going to merge with Andretti autosport, and it was going to be either Andretti racing or ready, petty or somebody or petty Andretti or something like that. I don't know. But then one of the reporters, it's on the beat was like kind of flame that one at all. It's one hundred percent wrong, so we don't know. We just don't know. I mean all I can hope is that something good. I, I would much rather that rumor about Andretti. Not have been shot down so quickly because I will be a positive thing. I think yeah, absolutely. I mean it wouldn't be way more positive in them, shutting down. Yeah. Absolutely. I think it's, it's the shutdown is obviously the, the last resort, that's the big fear. So. I think that at this point the more silence. The better seeing as fifty percent of the rumors were them shutting down. Yeah, exactly. So if they're not saying anything that could be a good sign that they're not shutting down man. And then nothing. And then that brings us to the race does. So we're now coke six hundred we'd done done it again and longest race to the eat. Ladies and gentlemen, pack God damn lunch. Yeah. I was a lunch impact at dinner. And I mean, we already kind of, you know, spoiled this, this one opinion wise. But I, I read a headline I read the article because I was just too tired didn't wanna read it. But some there was some headline out there. That's basically suggested or was asking the question, would it be? Would it be a terrible thing. Or would it go against NASCAR tradition? Too much to take away the six hundred mile race. And I mean, I guess that's kind of like asking. Would it be okay to move the Daytona five hundred to the end of the year, or, you know, would it be okay to have the Rover run the, the opposite direction, you'll seriousness kardashian's at stake? A I don't think that any NASCAR tradition should be safe right now. Say for maybe, you know, the southern five hundred which which they are to can in the brought back so that obviously is out that there is out the window, but I don't think there's any NASCAR tradition that should be safe right now. And in all honesty. I think a six hundred mile race had its purpose back in the day because it was all about the spectacle that bigger is better bigger is better bigger is better. But just like NASCAR isn't letting people run two hundred and twenty miles an hour in qualifying it. They tone Intel again anymore them. Why do they care about six hundred miles at Charlotte? Because the second that Bill Elliott granted twenty plus in qualifying talent. Then they're just like, oh, no restrictor plates is too fast that moment that they said, no, no, it's too fast. Then the era of bigger is better, the biggest spectacle, the biggest tent we can bring is the best it's over. So who cares if it's six hundred miles or five hundred miles or three hundred miles or eighty five laps like we had last weekend. What's exciting and compelling is far better than six hundred miles. The number six hundred is not compelling enough to me to make me think. It's, it's unchangeable you know. Six hundred six hundreds of gimmick you from. Yeah. Carney days. Yeah. Once they turn Charlotte Motor Speedway into a wroval I couldn't get anymore. What about six hundred miles at the Roble? I was just going to pitch that the honestly gone, the end of that would just be a mailing. Yeah. I think it was. It was a fantastic situation. We all should have done that, like we all should Ford. Wroval six hundred we're undermanned do it. God, everybody would be just like so tired at that point. Awful driving off track each other no care, like lap after lap ten. No, no one cares. I think you'd cut the length of this race in half, and it wouldn't be that big of a deal. Why would it be? I don't know how about how about that. How about instead of them saying, oh, we're going to help the longest race of the they have the shortest race of your Memorial Day weekend. Ten laps ten laps do it. That's it. That way. That would be a mad scramble dad way. Everybody will be free at that because race will be over to get in their helicopters and fly to India. So they could participate in the Indy, five hundred and the could see what it's like when as boost stands are actually full of people. Yeah it's funny I was watching the all-star star racing. They go into turn one. And there's no one there. Yeah. And now historically, the past, like, say five six years. He also raise hasn't been a big draw to begin with, but yeah, yeah. Totally Kevin seen that, that five or six years ago when people stop going to the all stories that should have been a, oh, big warning sign and be that should been the moment when they decided to start moving the all star race around to different tricks. Then we worry about. Yeah. So I guess her forty people, I guess, fulfilled for the forty people in the lineup. Everybody from William Byron all the way down to Joey geese including Quinn. Ho f- Reed Sorenson in the number twenty seven. Now we got ourselves, a Mattie, better detto, citing Parker, Cleremont site. You've gotta barely carry, citing Parker, clicker minute. That's cool. Everyone's in everyone plays, no one goes home. So that brings us to the only thing NASCAR dot com which of course, subsequently ruined that is being scheme preview because it is the coq six hundred it is Memorial Day weekend. Thanks to all of our current and former troops and sorry on for all of the heroes that have been lost along the way, which is what Memorial Day is all about. But that means we have plenty of awesome paint schemes. So what, what do you what do you like what don't you like? I'm going off the board. I am going to another site because NASCAR doesn't show all they don't. Because of course they've ruined it. No, they did show. I was surprised. They showed the Rick ware racing ones. Yeah. But overall, the ones that I do. Like I like the the the number twenty twos. Nights. I like the reverse shell scheme. That's an interesting take. I like the the number thirty four, which is the Love's truck stop with a Cam o- flag, with the Cam o- colors, all kinds of crazy regimen stuff pretty nice ride there your CF of the week for Christmas. You're. So it's the thrill of the grill. Okay. At least says the theme on the hood planters, right? Helman's Clorox of we let how many of those do you put it on a grill. One of these things is not like the other. Put any of them grew. On on the quarter panel. We got Bush baked beans. Okay. We got something you put it on a grill helman's again. Fine. Whatever cheerios. We flip does that have to do Clorox, and Kleenex wet wipes wins Cheerios have to do with a cookout. Clorox. It was Clark's with a cookout. There is no burgers in here. There is no stake. It was Bubba burger. Why am I going to grill Cheerios Cheerios? It'd be cool. Oh my God. The forty three car looks pitch because there's no petty blue in there. It's the vanilla vanilla coke with a hint of orange. Really nice car orange and red don't have any petty blue except for maybe the numbers. And then that's it. That. All right. Hold on. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. What? All right. So Ryan priests in the forty seven right? He's in the Kroger car dip teammate of Mr Chris butcher. He's at ballpark, Franks hits his you put the krill. That makes sense. Click that on the grill one that makes sense Kroger's click list one. Hey, you're right on the grill. Idiots ally. Carlex pretty cool and all the require cars bad. Yeah. They do. They have -solutely. Do I probably every single one. Yeah. What do all the cars, look great with this, this new angle that I have in front of me? Oh, so you you're looking better pictures than me. I'm looking all the great. That's how I could tell it was on the hood of the thirty seven. Yeah. Though, the ones that I would add to that I do dig the seventeen car especially from the side. The hood looks like it's just plain white. But I like that kind of metallic red and blue on the side with a big star that one looks really good. What is on the side of the on the side of the twenty? What are those roasted potatoes roasted potato Syria? Then I gotta go with that one. I mean the Rocher grill. Exactly. Yeah. You could. Then there are a couple of other ones to, to, to, to, to do. Hang the third thirty eight actually looks I, I love the flames, the red white and blue. Flames looked pretty cool. Looks pretty cool. I like that one. And of course ODBC the old dirty bastard on the side as well. And you didn't realize he was sponsoring cars. I think it's awesome. And then, like you said, the, the Cody wear, you know with with the p forty up paint scheme. And then a Bailey curry and the BJ McLeod, all three of those are like totally awesome. Totally scheme of the year. Yeah. Yeah. Totally. Yes. Especially the gym macabre when you know that one looks give him person looks good in the artist's rendering. Can't wait to see it on the track. Although we probably won't see it on the trial. We'll, we'll see when the leader passes him, we'll see what it gets into Iraq. Exactly. And then. Oh, wow. Is. I mean it's time for the picks. Man. We gotta do picks here. All right, crap. We've made it here. All right. So last week, I had who to the have had Kevin Harvick did at Harvard he finished second chase Elliott. He finished thirteen. Yeah. So. This count. Does that mean? That means nobody wants a million dollars because somebody got the nobody got the note, but you do get home track advantage for the final. Oh right on there we go. Every they're doing a baseball stuff on the so that brings us to six hundred and you know, this is such a different race from the other Charlotte races. When they used to race on, you know, just regular length. And then now of course, the world will trademark. Who goes, I do I go first know I, I think I go. I, I. Yeah. I did. I picked Harvick last week. All right. Six hundred miles. Take the number six hundred. Yeah. Divide by forty what are you get? Okay on either. Oh, yeah. I don't I can't do math. Fine. I don't do math. It's fine. Don't worry about it. It's like one hundred fifty something. Yeah. Some- somewhere around there hundred fifty who has one hundred fifty wins who's nobody who's in car, one hundred and fifty who's in car fifteen Ross Chastain. What number do you wanna drive before the number one, Kurt Busch? Kurt Busch, he's got gear wrench gear. Wrench is a big thing gear wrench. What does that numerology give you a neurologist, you six hundred again, I don't know that for sure. I'm just guessing I thought you were about to pick Kurt Busch. Right. A great would that be? Durrance racist, a racist gonna take forever. It's going to be the guy who knows how to will around the track. At a race track. Like this. You know what Paul Menard? I was thinking the guy who drove before him. But I'm not. A pick a guy who turned his back on a sponsor much like this track turn its back on that sponsor. Give me the forty eight a double Jay. Wow. That is a gutsy pick. That would be a big win to break the streak winning the six hundred ended attract he often one? Yes. Yes. When when it was called Lowes Motor Speedway was as if they had somehow slanted the field for him. The track. Any starting starting fifteen. I radio here, let me look at the how do I get to the starting lineup here? I need to get some starting up to me, but pick this compelling rate is good content right now. I think content content every pests tycoons me looking for the for the starting lineup and clicking on the wrong link. And being afraid that every time I click on one of these things at the internet connections, just die. And we're going to be off. All right. Some looking at gotta look at the starting lineup here. Okay. So they'll look at starting lineups for Kenner, they will do you good. Oh. Give you memories of old old time, may I was in antique store when I was in Illinois, so many starting lineups you saw. Yeah. You know what? Okay. So I'm gonna go out on a huge huge, huge lemon. This one home. Now, Ross Chastain. Give me. Man now. Give me there to two drivers them trying to pick between here that would both be like, huge gone limb type of picks. You give me Daniel Suarez. Give me source I was trying to decide between him and Ryan Newman. But Newman may have a black eye from the fight. I think I think he just got hit in the chest. Honestly. Oh, yeah. It's got a lot of padding there. And it was kinda like slapping more than they I don't know. So give me give me swears in this way, as always seems to find a way to be strong at the end of these races. So I don't even think he's going to be a factor for the majority race. Maybe like top ten top twelve at think, at the end is where he's going to make his move known you. And this is the rights that will do it. So now I don't know how he's done here, historically, let me look and see. Oh, gosh. It's not that good. Actually, you know is sorta bad is average finishes ten point seven. It's not terrible. Yeah. Ten point seven in three racist. So sample size it's not that big. Sample size. But we'll go with it but he's only finished top ten one time. Even those averaged ten point seven so usually I guess he's like eleven or twelve. Bego. So there we go. So you've got Jimmy Johnson the break his streak. I've got Daniel Suarez to get his first ever win. Right. I ever win. In the Cup series. Of course. So so there's ended do we have a side that I don't even know if you have a sign event. Yeah. Yeah. That many enthralling things keep track of anymore. Ox-. We. No, no. That's not Daytona July or no the race before Daytona July. Yeah, it's not not yet. It's not yet. It's like snowmen or something like that. I think that's right. I think Snowmass the last one. Yeah, so that's it. So if you want to find out who wins the race who wins the bed, and whether the race was any good because you probably aren't going to watch it because you're going to be barbecuing because that's what everybody else is doing Sunday night, instead of watching a race for six and a half hours like us, then come back next week, you could subscribe to the show, you can do it on speaker, Stitcher player, down FM, Google play music iheartradio.

Hour 2 - Darren watches Rise Of Skywalker and has thoughts on it, Nascar has a powerful moment today and #AskDarren texts

"Come tomorrow morning on Kost. Stan Richards puts up for the padres navigating these cove waters right now logan. WHITES GONNA. Stop By. We'll talk some baseball with him. Senior advisor to the general. Manager Logan Whites give stop by. Eight, six next thirteen sixty Fox sports SAN DIEGO AND FM three three. Hour number two. It is extra thirteen, sixty and the iheartradio APP show sixty one plus one. From the wind cave and with the Monday afternoon on this twenty second day of June for two thousand and twenty hope everybody had an enjoyable weekend. Didn't do all that much got caught up. On a movie that was all the rage on this show about. Six seven months ago, the final Skywalker What's it called the? Office was ten years ago. Yeah, well, my goodness. Dork showed up in his star wars shirt. That day ran right out to the movie theater caught at movie. He went and saw not too long after you didn't go opening night. Jim and Jack Cronin both had like tickets right. They're both. The KOGO show. We don't need to Kogo. Show live. We're taping the show because Jack was going to see it up in like San Marcos. I don't know where Jim went and saw they all showed up and they were wearing star. Wars closed, and then Marty put on her star wars costume a couple of days later I finally saw it, Saturday. Friday night whatever night it was one night over the weekend a dozen matter. I finally saw. This feels like a time in a galaxy and universe a long long long long time with the idea of game together in a packed movie in a movie theater Darren Movie Theater Wow and Fine, that's that's your view. It's fine. It was fine. That's it. Just said she loved it. You might be able to hear the background since she has carte blanche to do what he wants to do. During this show absolutely and it was, it was just the two of you know. We sat here right on the couch and watch it on Disney plus so you have I mean. If somebody questions forgotten. It already know I feel like it's a pretty forgettable it is, but there are so many things I mean the the one regret I. Have you not singing? A movie? Theater is to get the. Audience reaction when Kylo Ren dies like really that's how you're going to do it. That was supposed to be like this relief dramatic. Intense scene, and instead the entire theater laughed. Did you guys laugh at that Moment Darren? It doesn't stand out to me. Because he the emperor knock cemented the I in the end of the pit. And, then he clauses way out by and some of his energies getting. Sucked away apparently has the ability to resurrect the dead. Really when that happens, don't know. They make out, and then he just dropped dead. Yeah, well, that's SORTA punched a hole in my theory that ray and Kylo brothers sisters separated at birth the same way that lucan layover I was holding onto that right up until the kiss then again. Luke and Leia kissed, too. In the walk village, but it wasn't like a tongue kiss. It wasn't a real romantic kiss so I thought maybe that would be the big plot twist, but it was, and it was fine. It was fine. You don't have any problem with Halladay. Kill off Princess Leia well. How did they kill off print slayer? She just sorta faded away. No, no, she didn't. She faded away because she was sapped from communicating telepathically with Kylo Ren and that was a good plot twist. The Princess Laya was a jet I mean. It took nine movies to tell you the Princess Leia was actually. Have a problem that they blew up. They clearly blew up the ship that UBAD was in, but he somehow got onto a decoy ship. That was the most emotional moment of. Kill him off. You can kill Han Solo right. You can get rid of Luke by you. Start Messing around you back in the five thousand years old. We've got a problem, right. That part I thought that was the motion. It don't know, but you know it's sort of like Batman movie. Just sort of explain things as they go along and they go. It just is because it is. How did come comeback? I don't know I. didn't even know his name was palpable. How how did General Hawks? Why would why was he a spy? Explain that don't don't get. Don't really didn't care to invest a ton of energy into that. You guys are adorable I, watched it. It was two hours and then I moved. Whereas six months later now, character six months. You seem to still be hung up on the last skywalker whatever? This I will say I'm ready for it to end. Because I can't watch old man, Han Solo and Princess Leia is now dead and Luke's terrible. Sorry Luke So. Marty. He's so out of shape. It looks like he's been in quarantine. So I'm ready for I'm ready. I'm ready to let it go how you envision Jeff Passan. With no baseball pretty much Florentine, and if he wore a hood. That's that's insane maybe. Finally mercifully that's the way I felt at the end of the Skywalker I. Just was like may finally mercifully. It's over I thought he'll well dare. I don't think so. Man Collison Luke Skywalker more time for Halloween than I can count really that is. That's a different JIM chime in here. Well first off, congratulations on watching it, and so it took seven months and I've somehow I. Didn't know any of this I. Didn't know any of shaming from Jim and myself. That really had an impact. Just there's just too much to talk about. There's too many questions my advice. Go with the mandatory it's. Way Easier thing to follow. It's just better. Well listen. This was two hours. Two hours of my life and you get to see the Millennium Falcon flying around and x wing fighters and tie fighters and. Fighter I it I think the one thing that's remained pleasantly consistent throughout is the sound of tie fire going across the screen. It just makes such a unique sound and I really dig it. But you're right I mean the movies very forgettable and it's just. It's time to let it go. It's time all the characters that we fallen in love with. They're gone. They're just dropping like flies, so we can. We can't regenerate these people anymore. It just. It's a bad look for all of us. It's bad for them. It's bad for US viewer. To See an old athlete and he's five thousand pounds. You like Oh, Gosh! I used to love watching this guy in his prime and his age. I can't do anything. Just didn't look right good, okay. I. Didn't I listen? Okay. Maybe it's the red wine. Talk and I'll go back and watch it again, but I was like Oh man that is just not to Luke Guy. I. Need you to watch it again now that I've pointed I've ever. Go Watch it again. I'm never ever going to watch. Do that. But yes I finally I finally. Just like eighteen. This is the pandemic and no sports. This has been good so I finally caught up on the wire. up-to-date on billions which is. Bad, better, Call Saul I'm going to get there. Not even there yet. I haven't even started. But did did now. I do have all the star wars movies. Under my belt. Slow clap good job. I will say this. I'm I'm glad I didn't pay for. Glad, I didn't run right out there like Jim and Jack. Rotate Opening night with Star Wars. Cuban appreciated in a theater. Just to get like really reaction and I like that it ended. Words started really, and they buried the to light savers next to the place where Luke's parents or uncles or whatever it was. Now. But it would have been nice to know that. This whole time. Right so how does he thought? They were GONNA. Make her one last away. That was the problem like they had a different script for this movie and Unfortunately, Carrie Fisher passed away and they kind of had to Redo everything, and then they had put her in the movie, which seemed out of place when you saw her, and that was that was a part of the problem, not saying it was bad, I'm just saying like unfortunate circumstances led to. Why did some things in the movie? Okay and I think that that's fair I mean I think you're doing a good job. Explaining for instance billions I just mentioned that showtime. They had to stop production, so they only gave you season five and a half because of covid nineteen eight shut down production on the second half. Fifth season, hopefully they'll do a little soul searching and come back with some some better writing at any rate. I'm okay with that, but I'm just saying to you I didn't like all these episodes all these these movies, all these star wars, movies and nobody we never know the Princess Leia had was. I mean. Seems like a detail that should have emerged before the final skywalker. Whatever thing anyhow? Any sports viewing on your itinerary for this past weekend. Any sports viewing okay, Jim any sports viewing. Did you watch any sports this weekend? No. All right. Obviously watching these. Establishment on Friday. I went down to Sara's. That's the official FC Barcelona. Bar I went. There had some fish tacos. Beers crowd. Is Fifteen people or so somewhere in that range, so we get much bigger crowds, but it's the age of social distancing and capacity limitations, etc, frustrating match to watch. Carson totally plates via, but you know you can't put the ball in the net. You can't put what are you going to do? The golf event over the weekend wasn't. GonNa. Keep me in front of a television. The soccer I got up and watched. and. That's what I would be doing anyway. The NASCAR would probably not get me now. It might give me today. It might give me today. As a matter of fact, I believe it's on right now. And Nascar is one of those sports that when you're early on, and you get into this business. You feel like you got to know everything about everything and there are Jimmy Johnson fans obviously Jimmy Johnson oklahom-. Jimmy. Johnson, who is one of the greatest of all time? But truth be told I think that the longer you're in this business, the more you SORTA, narrow your scope to a handful of things that you really want to devote your time to not be an expert on, but I'm going to really really focus on this, and then I'm GonNa go in each inch deep and a mile wide on everything else so I can be conversational, but a NASCAR race for me. It's just probably not something that I'm going to do now. The name bubba Wallace didn't mean much to me three weeks ago. It didn't really I couldn't have told you almost anything about BUBBA Wallace. And and I will confess. that. I did not know that he was the first full time black NASCAR driver. Since nineteen seventy one. WAS A. Bit of a surprise to read that this morning. Did you know that I had no idea that NASCAR hasn't had a full time at that level black drivers since nineteen seventy-one. Wow, and he started his racing career at this level in two thousand seventeen didn't know. Grew up in mobile. Alabama moved to north, Carolina, so you know I'm curious I'm I'm kind of curious to know who bubba Wallace is and. Know. Who Bubba Watson is because I watch more golf than than racing, but didn't know much about Bubba Wallace and now I feel like we know a lot about BUBBA, Wallace There's this amazing image. Today from Talladega, which is one of the famous tracks this much? I do know about NASC guard. This is one of the most famous tracks anywhere in the world I. Think you'd Probably Go Nascar fans tell me if I'm in the right neighborhood I. Don't want to split hairs over this, but you'd say Tony would be the most popular track. And I would say A. Darlington Talladega brisk does would be the next group of Popular Tracts. There's history here. It's deep. It's in the south. It's Talladega Alabama and we know that we're in a period of time now. Where social justice and social issues. Are directly intersecting with sports and it's not just. NBA Players It's not just Colin Kaepernick. There's this. Angle of the story in S car. which as recently as two weeks ago, thought it was okay and allowed people to show up at their tracks, and if you've ever been to a NASCAR race and. You see the confederate flag everywhere and I mean everywhere so you'll see the driver's flags, you know you'll see Richard Petty, and you'll see Dale Earnhardt, even though the not racing anymore, you'll see the contemporary drivers. You'll see American flags, and you'll see an awful lot of that confederate flag nascar just recently said in light of our enlightenment or awareness or our reaction to or some people might suggest your overreaction to what is happening in this country. Nascar decided. This is no longer going to be part of what we're all about and a lot of is shifted. BUBBA, Wallace Who is a black driver who's racing currently at the moment? And he had black lives mattered printed on the side of his race car and he's spoken out. He had been quoted previously saying I. Don't pay attention to the confederate flags I. Pay attention to the Black and white I pay attention to the green flags. That's IT in other words. I'm going to really not going to get involved, but now were at different time and he he's much more comfortable and much more open to speaking out about about what's happening and he applauded Nascar for making this decision now I would point out that although I wasn't watching yesterday. I know that somebody took A. Somebody flu around a rebel flag confederate flag. Plane hired a plane flew around the racetrack and fluid around, and said DE-FUND NASCAR. This hasn't gone over real well now. I'M NOT PAINTING ALL NASCAR FANS with this brush. But it sort of is part of the identity for a lot of people. A lot of people think that this is the identity of NASCAR. The heritage part of the heritage heritage, its heritage not hate although maybe it's the other way around for some. And they couldn't raise yesterday. That didn't stop somebody from flying around the track in an airplane. With, the confederate flag that didn't stop and you should Google these images. If you have not seen the images of these people drive around the track yesterday. Apparently, there was a two mile long. Caravan of vehicles. With the confederate flags adorn to the sides to the backs of trucks, doubling up in some places, pickup trucks, vehicles, regular cars, motorcycles, whatever now again two miles. I was like wait a second. That can't be right two miles. Apparently. According to those who were on the ground it was it was. A lot of vehicles driving around the track driving around Talladega, yesterday with the confederate flag attached to their vehicles. And after the race was postponed because of rain. Now again I. Don't know about two miles I'm just telling you when you look at the images you're like. Oh, my goodness! After the race was called and suspended due to weather. In bubba Wallace's garage somebody hung a noose and we know we don't need to explain what the news represents. In this situation. Again the confederate flag band seems to be and I emphasize seems to be because it's. It's not that I'm there or really doing a ton of investigative work, but it seems to have been poorly received by many people who follow the sport. Including many who were there yesterday to display their displeasure with this decision? Now. The news thing it speaks for itself. That's another thing that speaks for itself in this situation. I can't imagine that the person who did this. Isn't going to be caught. The FBI is involved. Richard Petty. Who owns the team? WHO's the king? He's the King of the sport Richard Petty. WHO's eighty plus years old flew to Alabama today to be there for his race car driver because he owns the team that bubble wallace racist for so he flew there today just to show support for his driver, which is and if you're the person who hung that news, I. Don't know what you're scared. More scared of the fact. That Richard Petty is going to find. Find out who you are the FBI because Richard Petty is, is it? He's it in that sport and you're obviously EARNHARDT EARNHARDT Jr.. Gordon who's always been an outsider, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera, but bubba wallace racing today, and his Dale Earnhardt Jr. said I hope Bubble Winston, and it just simply put that out there on twitter. After we found out about this news, be in Hong. So. Seem yeah, it sounds like it was quite a scene. Yesterday and Talladega talk about a day that had absolutely no event in terms of the actual race, but planes flying the flag over a mile plus long caravan involving who knows how many vehicles waving that flag and then a noose hung. Wow, that's a lot. It's a lot and I know you've been on the air because I think it started literally right when you took to the airwaves today, but what's happening today is appears to be the polar opposite with all the other race, all the other drivers walking out with his car in support and the unity, and then the backup. He's getting so today is the polar opposite of what we saw yesterday. It's been. Hit to watch a scene and I I haven't heard the audio because I've been on the scenic. Come across my timeline. There's video you can find on on Fox sports on ESPN but the scene today I is something that I'm not sure I would've I would've dreamed coming from NASCAR. Years ago I got a very unifying uplifting of seen insupportable loss bubble Wallison has vehicle in his car on pit row with seemingly everybody who's allowed into the police who aren't fans. Every other driver seem like every other owner. Every other member of every pit crew seemingly was among them every single other person walking behind bubble Wallace's car as he was either driving to to the to start the race or his. His he was getting his car ready and going into the pet. Everybody was showing support, and they're behind him, so yes I. Agree with you I did I did at least see that, and that was really emotional again and I always think it's fair to you know I. Know that there. A NASCAR fans who live here in San Diego, and maybe it's just because of Jimmy Johnson right because you've got a guy from alcohol on, and you can make your jokes about county. It's whatever, but it's not neither here, nor there there are a lot of people who like this and man like. Serious to see where this goes. Because given the climate, give it the temperature of what's going on in this country to have that kind of reaction yesterday where some Yahoos flying a plane over with the flag to see mild plus. Estimated two miles worth of vehicles. I kind of don't know where this sport is going again and the new stuff now that the FBI. You can't tell they're not gonNA. Catch this guy, they will I mean I. IT'S A. Not many people are allowed under the try. It's a restricted environment and there's got this cameras everywhere. There's cameras everywhere now so again like. Sort of have to wait and see approach and see what happens with that, but man like what What a crazy scene just to think about like. People say oh, we're beyond that. Something's burning in here. You smell up. You should text your board. I should. But you know when people say that we're beyond that we're. We're definitely beyond that. Then you! Tell me like look what happened on a rainy day in Talladega. Alabama. And tell me that we're on it like that's. That's the point now. You don't have to agree with everything that goes on as part of this movement, but you can't say that we're beyond it when you see the kind of images that you saw yesterday, and that's also a reduced capacity. They were allowing up to five thousand people to purchase tickets that seem be like if it were the normal, the normal attendance if I'm not sure what the capacity is but I. Wonder what percentage. How much worse that seem could have been more fans allowed. Well again. I don't think they had any instance. I didn't read about any individual cases of the confederate flag. skated or being brought in I. Don't think that that happened. Not I didn't spend a ton of time reading about it when we come back Marty Smith. Who If you think about it? You know Marty Martin Smell. Yeah these ESPN character and spoke on sportscenter last night, and was pretty emotional about this, and he I think is probably. Better attuned with what goes on with Nascar then you and I will ever be Jimmy don't WATCH NASCAR DE! No I don't. Now I. It's just. Ask! Pick and choose what it is you're going to focus on, and then you know as I said you try to go an inch deep a mile wide on everything else, so we'll hear the the Marty Smith Sam when we come back. Tomorrow morning on. Kost Stan Richards. What's up for the padres navigating these cove waters right now. Logan Whites GonNA. Stop By. We'll talk some baseball with him. Senior Adviser to the general manager. Logan whites going to stop by. We get into it six on Xtra Thirteen Sixty Fox sports. San Diego FM one zero three three. Extra Thirteen, sixty, an iheartradio are partnering with Global Citizen for the Global Goal Unite for our future campaign. You can join us and the biggest artists in the world this Saturday as we're gonNA use our collective voices to make sure that nobody's left behind performances from coldplay Miley Cyrus and more plus appearances from Chris Rock Hugh Jackman hosted by Dwayne. Johnson the Rock in case you didn't know watch on NBC. Seven San Diego Saturday night at eight pm made the mistake, and I am the first to preach to everybody. Twitter is not real life. Twitter is not real life however. Compounding some of the images, the unfortunate images. From Talladega. I did a quick search for Bubba Wallace and I found NASCAR on Fox. Their official twitter that was going to now see this is where we're at in this country where I was gonNA re tweet this because I thought that the image was so powerful. BUBBA, Wallace, driving down pit row with everybody else behind him Richard Petty standing there some of the other drivers today waiting for him at Cetera walking behind him showing support. And then Marty, what happens, and then as soon as I'm ready to re tweet this. What what mistake do you think I make you bet the comments read the comments Gosh. I want to put the image out there, but I don't want to put all the garbage under it out there as well because I know for a lot of people, they sorta scroll right through and go. And I just read the first five six to marty brutal. That's going to be this sport in particular religious going to have a fight on its hands with so many people in its fan base again. I'm not saying that all NASCAR. Fans are just a bunch of racist rednecks. That's not what I'm saying. Because I, know that not to be true I. Do know that not to be true. But. If you're a redneck racist in this country chances. Are you like NASCAR so? There is a little of that going on, and this is going to be. This is going to be a fight. For NASA find that. In Nas car than say the NFL fan base or NBA Fan base that would be. That would be the sport that comes to mind. That comes to mind for me. Not every sport has its knucklehead. Every country has its knuckleheads every city. Every state has its knuckleheads. There's no doubt about that, but again some of the pushback yesterday. In Alabama. You just you wouldn't see that you wouldn't see that. If you were making decisions, you would start focusing on what's next. Okay, we've got this flare up. It's not that. But it seems like this is. This is going to be a fight for NASCAR. There's no doubt about it now. I also mentioned, and we're going to read your text messages coming up in the next segment, seven, zero, four, seven, zero first word of the tax. Giveaway we have a twenty five dollar power car. Dave and buster's for whomever it is. That entertains Sorin lightens. or or however it is the Jim Russell decides that today's winner should be. Stephen Gough who is a soccer writer for the Washington Post thirty nine minutes ago. The Orlando Pride. This is the National Women's soccer league. It's again, not a that. We spend a bunch of time on here. I like watching. The women play in the World Cup. If we ever had an opportunity to get an ESL team here in San Diego. I'd love to get one I. I like watching the ladies play. He reports and is just quoting. Is that chickens still get near their? Kind of. Orlando Pride announced that the club will withdraw its participation in the W. S. L. Challenge Cup. This is what the National Women's. Soccer League was going to do similar like MLS is coming back and they're going to an NBA coming back. Orlando Pride announced that the club withdraws. In the WWL Challenge Cup to positive covid, nineteen tests amongst both players and staff, following the testing players and staff who were all a symptomatic. It was determined that it would be in the best interests of the health and safety of the players, the staff, and the rest of the League. That the pride voluntarily withdrawals Washington Spirit, players and staff will have a conference call later today to discuss the situation I don't know exactly what that's about most if not all are likely to travel, listen to. This is a sport that is buoyed by the financial resources that baseball is, or that pro football or or NBA basketball so totally different dynamic, and I think that that should should absolutely be factored in here into the decisions that were made. But to my knowledge, this is now the first time that we've had a professional sports team in this country say we can't go we just. We can't make it happen. It's not in the cards for US I can look up more details and find where their season was supposed to begin against whom etc? I took a quick look at their roster Alex Morgan, I think plays for this team although she's probably maternity leave. So, there's a couple of notable players who play for the Orlando Pride. Again not a sport that we've ever mentioned on this show ever mentioned the national women's soccer league ever, but that entire team had to say that it is withdrawing from competition due to a bunch of positive tests between players and staff. Cautionary. Tale for for other sports other teams. We'll see we'll see. Again as we started the show by saying I. I'm picking up. A sense that there might be. A baseball story out there. I'll wait for the official reporters to start. Reporting would seem reasonable that it would be yeah. I mean listen. It's not just going to be twenty three clemson players. And a couple of dozen. Player thirty lsu players. Tampa players. You know the box, the lightning baseball teams I mean. I'M GONNA guess. For the point of Major League Baseball. There's every team has. Multiple cases every single team right and not just limited to your spring training facility, of course of course. But. For those teams that are have been working right in their home ballparks. It seems to me like absolutely. That's my prediction. That's where the story will shift to next. We'll see. We will see all right when we come back. We're going to read your text messages seven, zero, four, seven zero. How many texts I think we get today on seventy seven month old movie I think the majority. Only watch this I'm going to go. The majority went on on on. You've always seen once that's. Germany Times. Have you seen the final skywalker? Twice Both Times in the theater. Actually no three times sorry I've seen twice in the theater and one Disney plus. What do you get from? More viewings. Stuff that I missed. Like what? just like little details that I would miss if I like the first time I watch a movie I'm such an Awe I forget a lot of things like dialogue and stuff so for dialogue. Make things like understand. Really what spice runner just like Paul Solo too many parallels there. They try to have too many parallels to the original. What are you saying nothing?

We could probably say they're all trash. What.

The Right Time with Bomani Jones

00:00 sec | 1 year ago

Bubba Wallace

"Ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to the right time. My name is Bomani Jones. Thanks for listening on the ESPN app as pack as we appreciate it rate as review. Give us five stars. You only goes four stars. I'm inclined to believe you are a hater the time of the week where we do our interview and our first guest drives the number forty three Chevy for Richard petty motorsports is name is Bubba wireless. And I admit I did not realize started looking it up that you actually drive the forty three. That's right. How daunting is that? That's pretty cool. There's a there's a lot of pressure that comes with it, and a lot of history that comes with you look back on, on when the king, you know, made it famous even back to his, dad Lee petty started at all for us. And, and see how that tradition is carried through to to today. And, and a lot of fun. I fairly obligated to head SDP on this is the forty three. In my childhood, I imagined that totally with that red white and blue as DP. Yeah. That's SAP's been a longtime partner of the forty three and so it's always fun to have them on the car. Another fun part. We sat down to do this into Botoco came out on the table. I was like, damn slow early be drinking a coke. But I guess it's not too early window spots. It's always a good time. All right. Yeah. It's such a cool brand. Be a part of we've done. We've done a lot of stuff especially around this weekend Memorial Day and, and doing a lot with our troops. So we're, we're excited about it now before we started. I was gonna tell you about the first time I came across you, I was at the Nassau's Asian blade journalists convention in twenty eleven and we had a reception in NASCAR. Brought you out to talk, and I remember I sat in a room and I was like man of do can drive a little bit. He is going to be a star like is right there. But what I didn't realize at the times that you were just eighteen then you're twenty five now and seven eleven. Now, I was only seventeen Avs bed. Yeah. What, what it was like it was like summer summer. Twenty eleven. Yeah. And I did not like that part. I didn't grasp at the time because you really had a control of the room like a confidence about you. That did not scream out eighteen at that point. I don't I don't know. I don't even remember that. Yeah. But that's crazy thing. I wanted to twenty five now does feel like you've been doing this forever. I mean, I've been raised for sixteen years and then in the Nash. Car ranks since two thousand ten finally breaking through in the truck series in twenty thirteen and yeah. I think it does feel like sometimes it feels like really long. But sometimes it's like, man, just Lincoln. I yesterday we were racing. Go karts back home for people who don't know as much about like the path that you take to get into the Cup series in NASCAR doing it for sixteen years. So what's raising when you're nine years old? Yeah. Nine years old, you go kart? You know, it's not like you can go to your local sporting goods store and buy go kart. You know, you have to know some people or no ration- shops art at to go get one and, and you spend a lot of time testing and tuning and racing little local tracks around you. We our first race was a national event down in Florida and no idea why we went down there. We weren't even ready for it. But we did that come back home and kept practicing and trying to get better and better. So I spent about two years and every series legend are banned Lara's after that legend cars. Late models. Canaan cars that was right around the time. I guess we met dozen ten thousand eleven full-size stock car. I was driving when I was twelve really thirteen that is the most frightening thought in the world. To me, the idea of the twelve euro driving a car in general dot com, and don't need a license now that was that would you twelve oh, it's cool. I mean, the speeds pickup substantially the race is totally different. Go to some bigger tracks and, and field actual speed. I remember filling I was actually going fast a couple times in the bureauc- are, so it's a lot fun. So is the first time for you that you really realize that you could be like somebody at doing this. We're went past doing because it was fun. And you realize there was a path on this. Yeah, I still don't know if I've realized that yet, I mean, I remember sitting on the grid two thousand twelve last race of the season, in the Canaan car, and I was like we just qualified on the pole, and I was like, man, there's no really need to turn around right now and start over. I didn't I didn't have the. Thought of doing that. I'll just sitting there thinking, like if I did, what would I do when I don't know, let's keep digging. We went on win that race. So so that was that was big for us. But I think then it's always been before then it was always just show up and race. And I'm with a team now. And here's a schedule and this is where we'll be every weekend. And that's kinda how it is. You know, I have a scheduled to go by and, you know, the next race for us is, is Charlotte, this weekend, then after that we go to Pocono believe, so it's just taking it race by race. I don't I don't see it as, as anything more than that. I just have a lot of fun each every weekend, not a six hundred is weekend. Right. And for people who are unfamiliar, because I went to some like Ceuta go go kart track was that I think it was the first time that I realized like how physically taxing drive cars can be because like the idea of driving a car making you an athlete heavy like okay, what are you talking about? Then my core is I'm trying to swing around is curve like injuries in Atlanta. Jane even really nothing to talk about. Right. I was like okay like this is something for you. What is the most? Challenging thing about being a racecar driving. There's a there's a lot of obstacles, obviously, as soon as you get into any sort of spotlight. You're put on a pedestal. You know that's not even in the car yet in yard on a pedestal. So you gotta watch everything you do and say from the driving side thing, you know, the six hundred is our longest race to the year. It's, it's about an hour longer than than the other six hundred miles versus five hundred miles that we do four hundred miles. So it's the physical toll that it takes. I mean it just your depleted after once checkered flag falls. I remember last year. We had we had a decent showing finished nineteenth finish on lap and ran on the laps. And I remember chasing down the guy in front of us for the last thirty laps, maybe and got to them with, like six or seven ago and the way it works you start getting into their dirty heirs. We call it, and it starts become a bigger challenge. So you're all of a sudden, you're, you're really, really fast. You catch him you catch him. And then you. Kinda stall out when you get within two or three Carling's behind him. And I was like I have no more to go, and I kinda just kinda just road there behind him for last seven laps. And I was done got out limped back to the bus laid out across the floor for solid ten fifteen minutes and took me a second together. Gather my thoughts back. It was crazy to things like Tony Stewart who would have done the Indy. Five hundred didn't jump on a plane or helicopter, whatever they come to six hundred more mild. Yes. Yeah. That's, that's a asking a lot. I would I would definitely entertain that idea. It's, it's just you got to be prepared for mentally physically emotionally. So you talked about being the driver means you put on this pedestal. Do you have any moment where you realize for you that, like, oh, this is how I'm going to have to do this, because this isn't regular life, you know? Yeah. I think I mean I've always, I've never changed for anybody in no matter if it's race. It's inter-. View. You know what you got is which yet and, you know, always try to be on professional, but also light-hearted behavior. I don't I don't like take things too serious. But at same time, I gotta show people that, you know, okay, he's, he's real. So there's a kind of fine line at shift to walk. But the biggest thing is just being yourself and, and, and shown your emotion, your heart, your passion. So I try to do that still to this day, you know, I remember growing up and get into the fights at the track, and just because you're so passionate about one win. And then today, the fights have calmed down a lot. But you're still, you're still mad and argue with team and and go talk to your competitor about what happened and any show that you get on camera. You talk about it. And, you know you hold back, you know, a few choice words. But at the end of the day, you get your point across in, in the way you would want to, you know about like being who you are Ninos, thank authentic to that which is not always easy. When you do something public has there been pressure, like anybody leaned on you about changing who you are, how you go about things my mom's step. So many. But now, I think from forgot we used to have they have a student media training and. And always thought that was the biggest waste of time. Because the for us, it's different, you know, we, we've had a camera in our face from for, you know in racing. You know you wanna go race when you're nine years old. You're camera talking, whether it's you know, to a local media outlet, or whatever it is. You're not you're not on TV. But you could be at times, you know, do a local news story. And so just the whole time. I remember listening to my old interviews and yeah, it wasn't very good. But just who is at nine years old. You don't you're not born to be great on TV or our top professionally, so you learn that, but we started to immediate training and stuff, they'd have all drivers in there and then we would go on and do our season at the end of the season. Or after an interview people are like, man, you're, you know, you're wise beyond your, you know, years, and your great interviewer, and you say all this that, and not a lot of ands, and buts, and all that stuff. And at at I just say an there. And I'm like, yeah. So what's his media training about what are we keep going to this? Well, that so I just for me, it's always been just be yourself and even the, the gas to retraining us in, in media training was like and speech self that's it. And I take that every day. And so it's important, but I feel like it's a little different in Asgard where we kind of want you guys to be fun whereas everybody else to be boring. Yeah. It's, you know, for us. Our sport is isn't portrayed in the best light at times. You know, people say, you know, one, we're not athletes we drive in circles. It's you know who can sit there and watch race for three hours and, and whatnot races, too long tot, you know, the, you know, you have some point Sarah, it is hot races are long. But there's a lot more to it than just driving around in circles or strategy, you know you show up. And whether you get a group of your buddies to you know draw a number out of hat. This is who I got day, and you pay attention to that car and see a why did he pit on that lap and your guy put it on this lap? And next thing you know, they come out and totally different spots. And then it starts to kind of tick that, that's a lot more to it. There's a lot of strategies a lot of engineering behind it. It's just a lot that goes in our sport that, that it's hard to explain unless you get out there and physically be a part of this is also one of those things where like tell people by limited New York, you can't do it, if you like it like you have to love it. To do it. Do you feel that way about this that if you did not love it? This is something you can really see yourself doing. Oh, absolutely there. I do a lot of things that I don't like. And I'm like dragging through it. But, you know, you tell me oh climate any sorta race car. I'm getting all excited about it and ready to drive the wheels off of it. So I love it. You know, I've like I said, it's all I know. I mean going through school. Ought about was racing graduated early. Just to get out of there and, and be racing at the racetrack. Every weekend missed out on a lot of social events back home didn't really have a had some friends join up through high school and through middle school. But it was always like that separation, and then eventually got on my own and, and you're racing family. Is your friends and your family? So that was that was always stuff. We talk about high school in that way. Like if you're on the high school football team everybody knows that you're the guy who does that, right? Like while you're at school. But while you're doing this in high school and middle school, and you're racing after school knew the kids at school know that you are the guy. On the racetrack. Oh, yeah. They knew they knew every time I remember being on the track team and middle school. That was the last time I played sports recreational sports on the track team. We were in the middle of practice and I lived less than a mile away from the track, and our from school, and our trailer, pull up, you'd see Wallace racing on the side and middle of fractious, and this is an hour after school was. Let out we were all right? I got to go practice. So I had quit the track team. I don't even know couple races in and that was it just didn't have time for anything else. But everybody knew I mean I was picked up from school multiple times. We had a big tractor trailer rig, we got to high school, and it would take up the whole parking lot. And everybody news for me to leave being class and a Kandara leave. You know, sweet, I was, you know, I was rarely sick and it was like, oh, what's Thursday, Friday? Yep. He's gotta go so was a tricky for you with your parents to figure out how to. Balance, you know, the demands of raising with allowing you to just be child. It was different. I mean, a mom was hard on me about completing schoolwork and whatnot. And we missed it's funny. We can talk about it now. But two dozen ten we we miss. We're only allowed to MS thirteen days of school. We miss sixty seven days. Oh, yeah. Yeah. And so we had a talk, we, we knew going into is gonna be a lot of days missed, but we had talked with board talk with the principals teachers, eight when you lot of help here, you know, get schoolwork done, but it was it was a struggle. You know, for me sitting there every day, no one like, oh, they're gonna come a name yet. Enter common ring, and I get excited and be somebody else, not relieving debt. And in about twenty minutes later, I, I'd leave. So it was tough there. But at the end of the day, my parents, always told me the biggest thing parents told me it was never give the media anything to talk about my mom's huge on that. And then my dad, and I would go off to the races and, and just half on big thing half on Adra mom handle, just the idea of her baby. Right. And around and his fast caught. Yeah. She she wasn't a fan of it. I, I did. She come up in this, or this came around with you, this came around with me. My dad raced he tried to raise three times in a go kart. He flipped all three times. So I didn't get my driving from him. But my uncle and my cousin race a little bit up in Nashville, nothing on this level at the fairgrounds up there. So she may have been around that a little bit. Not exactly. Sure. But, but this is all all basically knew her. I remember the first time I just took a car to go to a football game. And my mother, you would've thought that they were shooting me off in outer space. I, I can't imagine. You're watching you go at around that track. Yeah. Now, it was I forgot, I know she wasn't at the first one, but I forgot, I think took her a couple races to finally accept it. And then she's been the biggest support ever since as this goes now like you are an adult and you do this, you twenty five you've been second in the Daytona five hundred and everything else. How does that change like, how is your relationship with your parents? Evolved, as this is gone father and his you have gotten old. Yeah. Now, the it's it's funny you go through life. And, and a friend of mine told me this, we've been through some family stuff over the last couple of years that has kind of separates little bit unfortunate. But a friend of mine told me it's funny, the older, you get you realize your parents from the superheroes you thought when you were kids and your light. That's right. Because you you in life go through a lot of things that you're like, oh, I guess my parents that I guess other people go through that too, and then you sit there and think about. Like your teachers and everything you're sitting there in school. And they show up with smile everyday. Some teachers didn't, you know you always had that one or two one or two teachers that didn't wanna be there. But you're like you goes these problems in life, and it's like I wonder if they did. And it's I sit there and think about that constantly. It's like it's life life throws everything at you. You've gone through some things lately, and you have been public about some of the things that you've been thinking fillet about just kind of the crush in the pressure. And you know, perhaps not doing as well as you wanted to win this win. You're eighteen where do you where did you think that you would be at twenty five in this? I didn't I never thought like for me. It was always different and people are like who's your favorite driver? Did you watch sport on up? I didn't watch the sport until I needed to start washing the sport. You know, when I knew we had a shot at being in the truck series in. We'll see that was gonna be two thirteen twenty twelve I think two thousand ten we start watching a little bit, but really pay. Attention. And what you know who they're doing this doing that? You know that didn't come about until I was basically in the truck series. And I, I looked up to a lot of guys and had a lot of help along the way race for Cowboys in the truck series. So he slept lot for sure. It's just been spin something that I've just kinda done on my own. We've my dad nine Chris, the guy got started just kind of did it on our own. And I never thought of if I win this go car race. What's going to happen next? It's like okay. Can we win the next one can win the next one? And then we show up when weekend or go to house, when we dad's ain't go buy this car, we'll racist next year. I'm like, okay. And just let's go win another rates another ace. And next thing you know we started getting, you know, we got picked up by Joe Gibbs racing and, and still then I didn't even think of and maybe one day I can drive one of his Cup cars. It was like, okay, what's the opportunity that we have? Now, it's capitalize on that and move on interesting to hear because I know when I first started doing TV. Remember, the first time I got, like a little TV appearance, I was like, man. I'm have a TV show in like a year, and then ten years later, I get on ATV show instantly, and then three years after that I get on TV. So I was wondering, 'cause I know what can be if your expectations are outside into beginning. It can be difficult to realize you're just going along the steps that everybody goes along into here, the for us always just step by step sort of thing. Step by step, and don't get me wrong. I, I like to run wild when my magic potion whether that's in life or with the fats race in, you know, I, I still have those dreams of like just won that race in wake up, and I'm like, oh, man, I was dreaming that, you know, like man dang. So, you know, I still I still get excited over that stuff. But at the same time, I know the, the situation that we are in, and the, the timeframe, it just takes a lot of time, a lot of hard work, determination, and grit to, to get to that next level. And how good did it feel is not winning. But still second place in the Daytona five hundred is no joke. Yeah now for sure. I mean, so those races are for people that don't know if you have a car, and you have a car that, that can run the whole time you have a shot at winning. Just because we're running two hundred miles an hour around there bumper to bumper. It's just like traffic here. New York just two hundred miles an hour. And so one wrong move wipes out could wipe out potentially half the filter cores field. So you start with forty cars have one rec, rec, twenty next thing you know, if you're forty nine twentieth, you get back, going again, another wreck takes out ten next thing, you know, now your tenth. So, you know, we were able to miss four solid wrecks that day in lined up six on that last restart and got a really good run and shove to push the three out there and barely beaten eleven to get second and never thought, you know, I would end up second the five hundred it's not like again, it goes back to man. I'm at the Daytona five hundred and I just finished second. And it was just like, all right. We just finished second. Another race. Awesome. Let's go on to Atlanta. You really were able to keep it. Like that because I would have is deleted, like, all right. Mr. five town, too, right? That would have been where I was after that. Especially like twenty three twenty four. Yeah. No, it was.

I know all that stuff, but I don't spend too much time thinking, like, oh, man. You know, a lot of people get excited over, you know, we just one you know, the southern five hundred Darlington just think of it as whatever the title sponsor that raises. That's we won that race great on the next one. So it's different for me. I don't wanna sound like I'm downplaying at all. But it's just we, we still got work to do.

Couple times last couple of weeks have been very public and forward about what the difficulties were have been for you. Now you felt as all of this has gone on. I saw one guy make it a point. He said, how brave it was for you to be willing to share that. Did you view that as something braver just for you was just something you failed and just sit? Or Mahama sleeve. And, you know, I for the viewers that are listening, come out about depression, and, and being down and out, and I show up and for a kid that, you know, if you look back on my tweets said it was a kid that has a smile, each and every weekend that shows up and tries to be friendly as I can to anybody everybody fans media, you know, you wouldn't think that you would see some of the dark days and, you know, you think you fake it a lot. You know, we fake fake a lot of things in life and, and some days, you're like, I don't you don't want people to know what's going on. So you show up and try your best not to portray that. And at wears you down, it toll it definitely takes toll on u and, you know, talking about it and coming out about it, breaking down about it. I didn't know that it would bring in another outlet of people to, to conversation with and, and I've had people that I've. Ever even talked to before, call up and say, man, I appreciate you coming out and talking about that stuff, because you're not alone, and there's a lot of people that's fighting it that are that are, you know, scared to say, and, you know, and there's some days where I sit there and think of, you know, and it's kind of embarrassing that we're kind of going through this. And I can see how people don't wanna talk about it. But I think a lot of told me the best thing you can do mom has definitely told me the best thing you do is talk about talk about crowd out. Let it out and it's definitely were you able to point to what it was that made you feel down. Oh for sure. It's definitely racing stuff. Coming from, you know, not the race stuff. Always been a little different now. It's definitely changing in a we would show up and we didn't have much money, but we had we had, we didn't cut any corners, right? We didn't have millions and millions of dollars like some of these kids coming up through now. And, and we fought for we show up, sometimes run fifth, and that was all we had. And the next week next two weeks, we'd go out and win. And we always just we always had a shot at winning. And then you, you get up there, ever since probably twenty fifteen you know, I went winless for three years in extended series. We were at row shouldn't, and we knew that the, the equipment, there was a little bit behind over. We wanted to be, but I was excited to take on a new role and try to get that program going, and I gave it my all each and every race and, and some races was good enough for fifteenth. And you're like, oh, this is a total change of pace. So it took me it took me a while I was very frustrated and pissed off and. Angry. And now I've kind of changed my outlook on things because I know where we stand, but you know, if you don't have fee don't have that millions of dollars of backing and on a good team. Then you're gonna struggle you're gonna show up and not have shot at all. So if you can change your mindset on, on that and show up and say, I guess it's good enough to run twenty today. That's a win. So it's tough coming from when a lot of races. And having a shot to barely have a shot at all. And when you show up and you talk about it and for years, it was kind of frowned upon. If you talked about the financial statements that you ran in the sport didn't really like it. And, and, you know, I've done a lot and I'm like there's no more hiding it. You know, gotta talk about if you don't talk about it. How's it going to be brought up and helped, you know, it's always gonna be behind closed doors and not mini-van. No. So, you know, my team now Richard petty motorsports is a great group of people. As forty of us in a for example on the best teams out there. There's four hundred employees, so who has a better shot and win races on a weekly basis, more resources just more technical support? You know obviously goes to the bigger teams. So it's a struggle for us. And, and our guys my guys, I don't know if there's a better group out there that has gone on and off the racetrack. I'm sure every driver says that, but my guys are, are absolute blast. So we show up and we have the best time we can and no one non tons at ten we're all going to be frustrated down in the dumps after race. But we still don't give up. And that's you know that carries a long way with me of of, you know. Yeah. Omar. Omar right around twenty fifth all day. That's that's how it is. But I come on the radio, I'm not giving up on you guys and they fire back. We're not giving up either we come down caution comes out. We do have pit stop guys are just as fired up as, as it was, you know, at the start of the race. So it's, it's nice. You know, you alluded to the importance of the car, and there's a quality car in the race, but I guess I had never thought about until you saying, they're the helplessness you might feel when you just know this car isn't good enough. Yeah. Yeah. No, it's tough. And you know, it's, it's a it's a fine line of how you, you talking. It's not like I'm sitting here saying our cars are terrible. And this is what we got him. I guys are terrible. I think I got a great group of guys and we do the best what we get that's all you can ask for and like this past weekend for the all star weekend. We we want our first Cup race. If you call it, it's the open. Doesn't matter. Doesn't go down on a resume. We wanted our open to get locked into the all-star SCO fight for million dollars. And we ended up finishing fifth. I don't remember last time I had that shot. And while and you know for for the last month or so. I've been you know, kinda just smirking not really not really myself. Not really happy go lucky guy and Saturday night. You finally seen some teeth with my smile finally seeing that emotion that was back. And I don't know how many text I got our comments that I got. That's the old bubble. You know, that's, that's what we miss and love CNN and it just brought back that passion. And it was like a it was like, okay I can still do this. You know, we, we had that shot that was nice to see. So I'm excited going into this weekend. Haven't been excited for races. And in a while again, that's not me showing not trying because you never know what can happen, but you know going in this weekend. It's like all right. We have a really good shot at, at doing really well here, so assu spoken eighty your peers about this after you've made these statements they've reached out for may of twenty five years. It's got me in trouble a lot. But I don't I don't really talk to anybody. I'm I keep it. I keep all. Oh my motions inside and, and I'll have a couple of on Wednesday mental breakdowns throughout the year, but a couple blow up throughout the year of where I've held so much in that it comes out taken out on whoever's around me and then move on. And okay, it's back to whatever and the new get a another handful. Two handfuls batteries holder all in and let it all out. And the next thing seems over you get time to get time to kind of relax and regroup and refocus, and then go back at it. And so those kind of like a repeating process, and you know that, that process just wore down those walls of holding it in its stuff to hold it in is it, you say that you've never really talked to people much about these sorts of things. Do you have any idea like for yourself wide is or what it is that you hadn't been comfortable with about doing that? Think it's just trying to be independent. My, my sister. My, we were all independent, my sister's probably the most independent of anybody. And and you know, looking back on and kind of. Realizing taken at different perspective looking back there. Burson view. It's like you're just as independent as she is you don't you don't want the help, you know grownup run in the truck series. We struggled for a little bit took us twenty one races to winter for struck race. And, and Kyle Busch was we had the meeting at the end of the year. And he was like, if you didn't win you weren't coming back, and he was like, man, all yet to do is if you're struggling some comp and ask me, I, I love helping out is, it's why I'm your boss is to help out and I'm like, all right. Yeah, yeah. Totally, I'm not gonna ask him on to figure out on my own. He goes out there and consid- on the pole and run first all-race in the same truck. Same equipment. So can I I'll figure it out? And next thing you know we show up that next year we went four races and, and had a shot at winning the championship. So I've just always, it was always my dad myself, and Chris, that's only people, I've talked to that's only people that I didn't need any other help. And I would say this is how the car is they. Fix it. Now's it. I didn't need to talk to anybody else to help us how to get around there and grown up. You, you, you're not with your dad Chris anymore, but you're with your team and you talk with your team, and I don't I don't need to reach out to, but I got my team to do that. So it's always been different for me. And maybe that's, that's hurt me along the way. But that's just house made just kinda interesting because you said that your mother told you that it's best to talk about these things, and she was not on that list of three people that you've met in there. So I would dealing with race stuff. How does it go with you, and try to, you know, because your mom again is separate from this? Yeah. Now, my mom. So the only reason she was separate. It was my dad nine Chris at the racetrack, and then my mom and my sister, the basketball court at you. Yeah. So, at the end of the every every night, we come back together dinner table and talk about our, our weekend or her game or my race. And but dealing with the racial side of things it was she, she was tracked star at university of Tennessee. So she, you know, she, she had went through all, you know, showing up and getting booed. Before she even you know, even race. So, you know, I've gotten that too, and she's the biggest thing she says, don't don't don't fire back because the media's gonna point you out for the pointing thing else out, rose, wonders that how hard it is within NASCAR to get somebody to find people that relate to particular struggle of being a black NASCAR driver. I don't wanna say the black NASCAR driver, but I can't think of the other one, exactly. And, and people will, you know, it's funny. I got that pin tweet on Twitter account. It's talking about there's only one African American driver. You know that's all you're going to hear about right now. It's me embrace. Enjoy the journey in a lot of people to this day. Still think I'm throwing the race card out there. And I'm simply telling people, you know, media, let's start out with the black driver. And I'm telling them like, that's you're not going to stop hearing that for a while. I'm not calling myself black driver. They are labeling me that. And I'm telling you that it's okay, so it's funny to read. Tweets, like I said to this day, people just fired out at me like oh, you're you're throwing the race card out there. And I'm like, I'm actually not I'm telling you, you're going to hear about it. The other thing is they know I know. Yeah. Yeah. Even if there were like if there were more. The reality is, even if you don't tell people that you are black. They are aware at every moment, James. Absolutely. So it's, it's, it's a tough road to walk. But, you know, nowadays, I'm well received at the track, you know, fan appreciation as outstanding show up at driver in chosen and you're going up against the Jimmy Johnson's Kevin Harvick Scott who have been there for a while. The Kyle Busch who gets booed the most and, and now I'm one allowed us. Cheers, so excuse me. That's that's special offer for your father on that. Because I think that, you know, being married to a black woman then having that you as a son in coming into this world is probably giving him a whole different look at the world, then he probably had prior. Yeah. I'm sure I'm sure it has it, it's always been interesting to, you know, sit there and talk about, you know how where he's coming through and how he dealt with at all. But you know, he was he was always there fighting for what was right. That was the biggest thing. And, and. Sometimes it'd be too much, and he'd always he always wants to get even and, and, and at times that called four times it didn't. But but he handled it. She tried to help the right way. I when, when I read your bio, it was his name was Daryl is soon that he was the black parents didn't also your mother's name was doesn't, then you really. The other direction. All right. We got it, but I always think about to that, you know, your Daryl junior. And even in that time even that putting his name on you. That's a hell of a statement, whether people realize it, I don't know if they got Lazier was kinda worse name. We got like two reysen names. They're all three Darrell Wallace junior, so yeah so I just bubble now. So what is it like you on the internet, though, because I am personally kinda notorious fight with people on the internet about all kinds of stuff. Yeah, yeah, I haven't you know I've gotten in trouble for firing back and whatnot. But I sit there and, and social media's had a lot to do with, you know, being depressed and, and going through all these motions that I've been you sit there and read these comments, and you're like, man, you know, I try not to let it get to me, and then, and then you read it so much. You start telling yourself the same thing, that's where it all comes from. It's like, yeah I mean you're not good. You don't belong here you suck. And you know, you're you get somebody else to drive a car and, and you start. Start becoming one of those haters, and it's like whoa, so it's, it's it, it sucks that it's gone that far, but maybe before, then I haven't had much, you know, energy or time to even want to fire back lately. But before of I've fired back a lot. You know, we've gotten a couple of his words it's gotten personal family. And, and, and whatnot, it's gotten pretty serious and karma ended up a good on my in bat on that guy's in, but it's always fun and do. But you gotta, you gotta walk a fine line with that, too. Did you notice kind of the art of feedback found that like when, when the group of people I was dealing with, with small? It was mostly complementary in Dane. Once you get to a certain level of visibility. Now, you get this whole different set of people not even anything about who you are the person, 'cause they don't know you're just like an avatar on the screen. Yes. Yes. Absolutely. I think the the the biggest thing for me. And you look at go back to when danika Patrick came on the scene. You know NASCAR. It's a. Blamed NASCAR a little bit. It's they, they throw it at you constantly constantly constantly and, and circumstances, a little different between danika but, you know, we like we go back to the equipment side of things. And they're like, oh checkout. Wallace weekend next biggest thing coming up, and, and we run twenty fifth and then you go back next week. And hey, check out walls. You know, he's this isn't that run twentieth. And it's like okay. People want winners. You know, people, you know, you talk about somebody, you know, they're doing something big, not, not somebody this, and then and then that turns in all they're only doing it because he's black. And so it's like here we go. Now, you know it. So I kinda blamed NASCAR for, you know, it's like let me, let me create my own flame. You know, I don't need you guys to, you know ignite it for me. I can I can get it going. We're going to have some big moment. So it'd be interesting to see how it all, you know, shook out from from day one, if we didn't have that kind of. City. But then again, if we didn't would I be here today? So it's kind of a catch twenty two but but it's just a fine line at all. Yeah, I guess there's also kind of tricky for them, because it they are doing this in part because you're black, right. And they have diversity initiatives that they look they got brands on cars trying to sell stuff and they would've meaning eyeballs. Unless they don't wanna agree to. Bella yellow to get out here. They would have pitch this stuff. But I guess it does put you in a trick bag in that sense in that what people are assuming that ties into their politics everything else. Now, you become like the, the, the you're the object these things for them. Yeah. For sure and sit there and think about, I see, I see, you know, we have a the diversity side of, of motor sports is growing especially NASCAR, whether that's in the stands. You know, a part of the teams at three strikes, whatever it is. And I sit there and I'll see I'll show up to the track. And and, and you'll see some African American fans that are wearing chase Elliott t shirt or Jimmy Johnson t shirt and part of me is things like, okay, one does. I know I'm in do they care, right? Are they like this guy in any good? You know, it's like it's I wonder what they think. And and, and I sit there and wonder that a lot yesterday. I was driving down the highway. And I'll look over and I see. To after American girls in the car next to me, and I see an old. I actually were texting about earlier an old Clinton lawyer, t shirt. And I'm like. It was it was really awesome. I wouldn't even Cup series when he's run this car. And so it was like, okay, I give you that you may have found that or. Wherever. But I'm like, I'm right here. You know, so there's still. I don't know if it's a lack of communication, or if they're just like at the end of the day, you know, I'm, I'm a critic of many sports, and if somebody's not good, then I cheer form. Right. So I think I'm not gonna say it's a black thing because I think it's everybody everybody wants to cheer for winter, you know, and everybody wants to not everybody wants to underdog. So it's, it's different but we look at results at the end of the day, I'm I'm guilty of it. It's like a who's going to win this game. You give me two matchups. I go back and look at the results and they have a losing record. I'm not gonna cheerful, you know, I am curious about this limbo, your t shirt on like I do has really deep into this real. Yeah. Yes. I don't I don't know. I it's funny. I wasn't gonna roll down the window. On, you know so it's different today's level, like when I was in college the racing jackets big deal what they be account. Raise Rajak is another thing to have Clinton boy teacher this indicates sophistication. Yes. Expect you to have. Yes. Absolutely. So it's I was pretty funny pretty funny.

For more information. Switch gears a little bit. Look, this up when we came in here, you play the drums. I do. I do. I have a drum set. Yes. Really that you have drum said. That's it. Everybody's like racecar driver. Yes, I will agree to that one hundred percents. You're a golfer to know. I just have a. A set of golf clubs. Same with drumming. About golf. I don't play golf golf plays me. Yes. Absolutely. It's the worst. But yeah, I have drums at home. I've been playing I had my first Trump that was when I was Levin years old. We had electric electric kit, and then I bought my first acoustic kit, two years ago now and it's been a lot of fun. I've gotten a lot better. But I mean I only get to play once a week. So it's tough who you're drummers, though. Like who do you really rocket so monitor all new age, heavy metal stuff? I two thousand I don't know what year that was seventh grade. I heard of inch sevenfold for the first time. And, and yeah they were screaming and whatnot. But it was easy for me. I was I just joined the band in middle school. And, and I was on the percussion side, and it was easy for me to shut out the words, Sylla's easy for me to shut out the words, I pay attention to the words now it might take me five ten times to understand what they're actually screaming, but I could pick out the percussion side pick out the. Drums, and the double bass and, and try to like, oh man, I could I can play the song. And that's how always went about it. So I would find the coolest breakdown songs, and, and then my John or just kept growing next thing, you know, I'm you know, bands that I listen to back in middle school really good friends, and it's like this is cool. This is really cool. So the drummer's now I mean nobody would ever know of because they're all underground drummers from, from misma-, Jerod Boyd fit for king. Jerry's thrilling Matt trainer blessed fall, there's, there's so many that I've that I've been able to, to kind of lay the foundation, Aaron Gillespie is probably one of them as well that, you know, he was he was probably seventh grade early that I'm you know got in contact with him, they're all race fans and it's like seventh grade. Listen you guys racing the wildest. Yeah. And then all of a sudden, it comes full circle like we've been a fan of yours for years. It's like same. That is about this. What you get the visibility. They like, would you do you like what they do for me? The coolest people that I meet are not the people who are the biggest now that. Somebody like ninth grade xactly same way I get. I get so excited. Like, when my when, when they all come to town, I'm Mike pumped up. There's another show. We're going to go to and just go hang out with them, because it's in the day, you know, they might seem all angry and stuff in the news it, but they're just bad ass coup people. So you medal is your thing metals. My thing, I'm I'm all music country depends on how far you down the country road. Now, you got me think about old town road with the horses back. But the country's probably this part, I kind of different from, which is total opposite of being a NASCAR. Yeah. This is so many country, concerts that we have at the track, and people like, are you going to concert who's who's playing like such such? I'm like, never heard. So it's, it's pretty fun thing. Have you been Liz, like mad? I can't dance and that's five but I feel I have you Liz, if I nobody's gonna dance. Yeah, we're all going to move up and down back. There's, there's some different dance. And there's a lot of flailing arms and legs and whatnot, you get inside the pit you better. Watch out. I've never been out of the pit again for me being at the shows. I'll sit there side stage or or or in the crowd. And I'll just watch the drummer, the whole time, just sitting there, you know, non my head, whatever and here comes the breakdown, and you kinda get into it, but I'm always watching the drummer. Yeah, I I'm a big music, do like a music critic before started doing all this. So that's meat, right. Like I have a tendency to make the move. I'm staring at the band. I'm looking at some point I got to look at drummers, and I was just like, oh, this is this is like low key hypnotic would go at all right? Because he's a four limbs forget that. He's like legs. Yes. Yes. And it's and they're, they're hitting eight different things at once and you're like, how do they do that? And so for me it's, it's something that I. I love doing again. We go back to if you don't love it. You won't do it. And I love I love drumming and trying to figure out how to be better, my, my feet need to move faster. My, my hands to move faster than you'd have better better rhythm. And it all comes with time. My buddy actually just text me earlier this week. Hey, you wanna do drum club video with me, and I'm like, oh, absolutely. Not even some time, and we will get good enough at golf to play the liberty. Because I can't show I've done that once and that is way more nerve. Wracking. I can't do it. I'm going to show up and I'm not going to just embarrassed myself. I'm going to hold everybody. I can't throat as club or front. All these. No, no. I played in a pro-am tournament here. It was twenty fifteen over in Connecticut, and it was the travelers pro-am. And I was with Shek ler. Matt Lauer at the time I e bucks, three hundred people lined up. Oh my God. Am I swing isn't the greatest? It's gotten better since then. But I'm like, if I shanked this thing and nail somebody in the head. What, what do you say, we're going to do, so I'm up there on T box, is shaken and I get through it all. And it was fine. I had to yell four on my second shot to ladies sitting off in the lawn. And I'm so it's, it's never really wanna keep going. Yeah. Yeah. And he loo room. Yes, I was it was intense thing. You've got to do this job. Oh man. I think honestly being up in a fighter jet, we have a we have partnership with air force. So this is actually before, therefore, she got a chance to go up Thunderbirds. Come down today Tono and they give you know, select rods and, and finally was able to, to put my name in the hat in twenty twenty seventeen and got to go up. And, and I just that feeling of going five hundred miles an hour taken off doing all the roles and whatnot. It was it was really cool. We pulled eight point six or non point two Gs or something like that which doesn't sound like a lot. But for person that, that handles. Jeez each and every weekend, it was pretty cool, where it's kinda ripping your face off and so fast forward to now have gone up three times now and my, my Pyare EPs are always asking me. Hey, do you would you be interested in flying again? Like they say it like. Would do you really want to do that again? I'm like how to want to do. Absolutely. There's no greater feeling. Like, I think that's probably the coolest thing who's the coolest person you've had, like, no who you were that you didn't expect. Oh man. That's yeah, of course you. Oh, that's tough. And. I don't know. I've had I've had a lot of people reach out and and, and follow and whatnot. But that one person's that's difficult. It is proud of all of them. I know same. That's why I'm like everybody. I've met has has always been. I'm like, that's pretty cool. All right. Awesome. They pay attention. So, like, what's it like you now with your friends when you were younger able to keep in touch with people or how does that is that vault for you? Man. I haven't I'll say who have talked talked to maybe one or two people from school, we, it was different, and I was always gone, and I was always kind of on island by myself, and, and I put myself there. So it was it was always tough. So once I got out of school, they all went to college and kinda remained close. And I, I just didn't have, you know, it was like, hey, we're doing something this weekend. And I'm like I race thirty six times out of the year, and it's on weekends so you'll have fun. And so, but it's very rarely that I keep up with people from school. Is it hard to meet people now like is now that you are visible person not? I mean it's you know I keep a tight circle you got to. Sport. There's only a couple of that, you know, truly know each other and can give each other the, the, the crap on a bad day. You know, but it's, it's always fun meeting, new fans and people and seeing how they interact. And in some, some people are just like starstruck. And, and I sit there and I'm like, all right man down. You know it's, it's all right? And it's like each put yourself in their shoes, and that's like, I don't get excited over anything. You know, if we go to say a movie premiere or whatnot, or, or, you know, I, I did the I've got to meet Kevin Hart art, Kevin Hart twice and people like how is he a holy cow? Can't Dell's like school time. He's awesome guy. I've gotten to go, you know, the BT awards and, and all that stuff. And, and I'm like, you know, all right go done that, so for me, it's always been different. I've never gotten like maybe if who celebrity crush on Charlotte's, they're in a huge fan of her. She was at five hundred. I may have gotten a little nervous last year when she was there. But I don't know. I just, it's always just like everybody's okay. Now you at the B two you wards how many did you give and you told people you drive in NASCAR? So this was back in two thousand ten but then I went in twenty fourteen a lot of people were like, oh, no way. Okay. You bubble. Yeah. Be like, really tell me more because I think for people it's, it's not. I mean I take place. Black people. Driving cars really fast like it's the path to entry to Nasc all that. I think that people look at him. So how'd you manage their? Yeah. Yeah. So it's, it's different. You know, there's five have. You don't have anybody look up to look at in sport. And that's, that's the main problem. That's the number one problem. And so for me I can relate a little bit. I mean, I'm not as black but I still have the roots and, and it's and for me it's all all about being different than having this opportunity. And how do we get that word out to the after Marican community, and we, we do a lot of stuff and I have my PR up this year? She was like, holy cow didn't realize, how busy they have you. And I'm like, I'm doing stuff pretty much each and every day. So we missed the part, one thing, I did notice about you from the beginning that I think people have questions about just from a distance because we're you expose us to be under no delusions about whether or not you are black, or not, though, which is the big is a huge thing, right? And in this world, you're in, I guess, one thing we're either you're going to be sure in that fact or it's going to consume. You know, for sure up, I'm darker than than than white. So you're gonna get looked at you're gonna get treated differently until they're like, oh, oh, you're baba. Okay, essay. Yeah. See that. Yeah. Oh well for sure for sure. I'm always, you know, especially in this world today, you always have your guard up and it's it's sad, and you're always, like, how are you going to be treated today and nine times out of ten? It's, it's fine. But one hundred percent of the time I go out and go into a restaurant or whatnot, and I'll be with my mom and my sister who are black and, and, and you know, see how the interactions gonna be. And, and you're like. Could have been a little better. But at the end of the day, it's fun because usually I keep going the same local spots. Oh, hey, you're back again. So it's a little different. That was always tricky about his great. So does his dad taught you time. Yes. That is true. That's true. I a place down the street Medicare globally. Yes, that's right. All right. Just want to get away. I mean, let me enjoy time with family, so, but yeah, being in this world and you gotta accept it, and I accept it. And and you know, people are like, well, he is white, too. And it's like yes, you're right. I don't I accept that too. I get along with everybody black white purple, green red, whatever it is. I'm human. And that's how relates everybody that is Bubba.

Next Few Weeks Critical, Hospital Price Tags & So Long Segway- Wednesday, June 24th, 2020

"Today is Wednesday. June twenty-fourth what to know from federal health officials about why they say these next few weeks are critical for the pandemic and explain the mixed messages from the White House on testing, also why some hospital secrets could soon be revealed plus NASCAR's emotional show of support say so long to the Segway, and why more companies are giving paid time off later this year? Welcome welcome to the newsworthy all the day's news in less than ten minutes fast. They're fun and on the go. I'm Erica Mandy. Thanks so much for being here. You're ready. Let's do this. Health experts say the next few weeks will be critical for Americans to control a surge of covid nineteen cases on Capitol Hill lawmakers heard from members of the white. House coronavirus task force. Remember them. They aren't taking part in daily briefings anymore, but they did give their leaders take this week and it comes at a time when at least twenty five states are seeing a rise in infections, the nation's top infectious disease expert Dr Anthony Thoug- credited New York, being able to. To bring the number of cases down that she also pointed to what he called a quote, disturbing surge in other areas of the country. He then cited Florida. Texas and Arizona as examples Florida. Cases are up eighty seven percent from last week in Texas. Hospitalizations have reached record highs at twelve days in a row, and hospitals and Arizona have reached eighty three percent capacity, keeping nine spikes in the number of people hospitalized is not connected to how much testing is going. Going on in that state doctor FAUCI says places seeing these kinds of upticks, people should stay home as much as possible, and if they have to go out, they should wear face coverings, but president trump seems to disagree. He's still choosing not to wear a as he campaigns around the country. There's also a difference between what the government's top health officials are saying and what the president is saying about testing the health officials said there are efforts to increase testing while. While trump said at a weekend rally. He told his team to slow it down. Remember the president's aides later said trump was being sarcastic or just kidding about slowing down testing, but then trump himself clarified yesterday, saying no, he doesn't kid about that either way. Federal Health officials say they're moving forward with testing efforts. The Wall Street Journal reports about five hundred thousand tests are done a day in the US right now and twenty four thousand of those comeback positive daily. One sort of bright spot in all of this Dr. Fauci says he's. A Americans will have access tweet vaccine by the end of this year, or at the beginning of two thousand twenty one, and even though it's rushed, he says health experts are being cautious vouch. He promised he wouldn't allow any vaccine to go to market, unless it is safe and effective that we also noted the pandemic might not end right away. Just because of axiom becomes available doctor FAUCI warned it's likely to take some time to make a real impact on the population as a whole. Federal Prosecutor says he was told to go easy on one of president trump's longtime confidence and he's going to testify about that on Capitol Hill today. AHRENDS Alinsky was one of four lawyers who prosecuted Roger Stone's criminal trial, but then quit the case in protest, remember stone was convicted last year for witness, tampering and lying to Congress during the Russia investigation, but in prepared testimony Celeski says the Justice Department intervened in the sentencing to give stone special treatment. He Alleges Attorney General William Bar. Bar and his top deputies issued inappropriate orders to lighten stone sentence, and then he says the main prosecutor on the case fell in line because he was afraid of trump career prosecutors had requested stone spent seven to nine years in prison, and he got just more than three years so far. He hasn't spent any time in prison yet, Reuters? Reports Republicans are expected to push back on Dolinsky testimony today saying it wasn't about politics at all. It was about policy disagreements to be continued. A strong earnings rattled southern Mexico destroying buildings and injuring several people. At least six people have died the seven point. Four magnitude quake hit the tourist area of while Toco, several buildings collapsed in an oil refinery burst into flames at least one hospital. That's been caring for covid. Nineteen patients will likely have to be evacuated and the threat isn't over. Hundreds of aftershocks were reported though none were as powerful as the original quake. The US Geological Survey says more than fifty million people in Mexico likely felt the earth shake yesterday. Just more than four months until the general election both president trump and former vice president biden are busy on the campaign trail president trump spoke to hundreds of students in Phoenix Arizona. Politico estimates. Three thousand people packed a Mega Church for the rally yesterday and many lineup for hours to get inside president trump spent a lot of time condemning recent decisions to tear down confederate monuments, saying quote, the left-wing mob is trying to demolish our heritage. The president also said the so-called fake news is misleading the public about the severity of covid nineteen. For this event, the trump campaign did not require temperature checks, and most people did not wear masks, even though there's a new. New Local Ordinance there in Phoenix, requiring them indoors remember. arezzo is one of the states seeing a surge in cases and hospitalizations as for his Democratic opponent former vice president. Biden is sticking with virtual campaign events for now, but his usual livestream got a big boost yesterday former president. Obama joined his old running mate. It's the first time the two teamed up at the same event in the twenty twenty presidential campaign Obama said there's no one trusts more to heal the country than Joe Biden and it seems it worked. Organizers told axios that was the biden campaigns. The largest fundraiser yet Obama is now expected to do several more events with Biden throughout the campaign. Another private space company is partnering with NASA to Take Humans Space Virgin Galactic. To design a program that will take private citizens into orbit specifically, it will help find people who want to pay for a trip to the International. Space Station and then the company will work to train them and coordinate their transportation. Remember NASA has become more open to commercial opportunities such space tourism at the ISS so this is just part of that plan. For News ahead, but first let's take a quick break because this episode is brought to you by magic spoon. Do you ever get the craving for a bowl of cereal?

Hospitals and insurance companies may have to start being more upfront about the actual prices, common tests and procedures a federal court ruling this week upholds the trump administration's push for more price transparency in the industry. The idea is supposed to help beef up competition and pushed down costs, the health and Human Services Secretary called a victory saying quote American patients deserve to be in control of their healthcare, but it may not be the final call just yet. The AP reports the American Hospital. Hospital Association plans to Appeal Hospital leaders argue this ruling doesn't actually help. Patients understand their out of pocket costs at all, and can lead to more confusion since the prices are what's negotiated between hospitals and insurance companies, the trade group also says this type of ruling would cost hospitals too much to comply especially right now. During pandemic, originally, the new requirement was set to take effect in January, but because of the court case, the timetable is no longer clear to be continued. The FBI has now investigated and says the rope founded in Nascar drivers garage was not actually a hate. Crime meant to intimidate a block driver. The FBI determined the rope had actually been there since last. October long before Bubba Wallace had been assigned to that garage. Remember Wallace is the only top tier NASCAR driver who was black and one of his crew members found what looked like a news in the team's garage Sunday night now investigators say it could have just been a pull rope to close the garage door that was left there. There for Matz but Wallace told CNN. He doesn't think that's the case. He says he's been in lots of garages around the country and has never seen anything like that. EITHER WAY NASCAR is showing support for Wallace, in fact before Monday's race at Talladega superspeedway, all thirty nine drivers, and their crews marched down pit road and pushed Wallace's number forty three car to the front of the line, just moments before the race. By the time the group reached the front line. Wallace was overcome with emotion. He happily declared. This sport is changing. For episodes of the Sitcom thirty rock are being pulled out of circulation and creator. Tina Fey is issuing an apology. The episodes feature characters in black face. So NBC is scrubbing them from the streaming platforms like Peacock Amazon Prime and Hulu on the same day ABC late night. Host Jimmy Kimmel, said sorry for something similar the New York. TIMES, reports. He occasionally used black face to play celebrities when he started on Comedy Central, about twenty years ago. All Right? It's the end of an era. After nearly twenty years Segue, stop making its two-wheeled personal transporters. They were launched in two thousand one to a ton of hype. The expectation was they would revolutionize city transportation, but the idea never really took off with anyone besides security guards and tourists, only one hundred forty thousand segues wherever sold which company reports was well below expectations. The brand also ran into some other issues like high profile crashes that deterred buyers, so they'll be officially retired next month. And that's it for the main ten minutes of news today, but now it's time for work Wednesday. Where we break down one interesting career or work, related news story, every Wednesday and today we're talking about how more companies are moving to make election day a paid holiday. Twitter is the latest company to make that announcement saying all of its US, workers will get November third off, so they can. Can vote in the general election and they'll be paid for it to. Other companies also plan to give their employees the day off this November including meal. Kit Service Blue Apron and clothing company Patagonia. The hope is, it will get more people involved in their civic duties. That's especially important for Americans because Forbes says the US usually see some of the lowest voter turnout in the developed world. All Right? Thank you so much for listening today.
