Alive: The Drew Robinson Story

"Jeff where does the story of drew robinson began. The story. Drew robinson begins on magic moment lane in las vegas jeff passan is in mlb insider for espn and his work on the story of drew robinson is up now on espn plus it was just all those those little tiny amazing details down to the name of the street that he grew up on that drew me to him. As a person has a character and his story and he was precocious. What's the first thing people think about you guffaw. I did my best to try to lighten the situation with people. I tried to make people laugh. And i thought that i was good at that. He was the kid youngest of three children who would go next door and sneak through his neighbors doggy door and steal their treats so he could bring him back to this menagerie of animals that he had in his house. There were dogs that were cats. They had a pet in a cage and drew is the kid who would tape his feet to a bicycle and go on a trampoline in his backyard and just bounce around without any care his sister brittany used to hate having him around because drew would take off all of his clothes. Run outside and start riding a bike and her friends would say your brothers naked again. He was also an incredible baseball player and from a very young age even though he wasn't big even though he wasn't strong he had the actions. That coaches look at. And say this kid ever fills out. He is going to be something else but when drew was at that age where he needed to tell his feelings to someone where where he needed to explain that he had this. Lingering doubt in his mind that would never go away regardless of the situation. Whether it was with baseball whether it was with school with friends with family there is always something air pushing him toward this negativity that he just could not escape from can think back to. When i was twelve years old playing little league. I was a kid every single time i struck out i would come in and slam. My bad slammed my helmet kreil time. Because i thought that i had to be perfect in every aspect of my life in terms of the scouting report on drew robinson war his best attributes. He had a lot of power. you know. he's left handed hitter. He ended up hitting that growth spurt. Six foot one hundred ninety pounds. Just a beautiful swing gap the gap power. That was gonna grow into something more if his body filled out and when it did man like he was an actual prospect. I fly all get to right field at that splashdown run for drew. Robinson being a prospect in las vegas in two thousand ten pablo was no small thing. There was a player who had left high school and gone to play junior college ball named bryce harper. Yup and there was a player at bonanza high school. One of the rivals of silverado were drew named kris bryant. So this was a pretty historic high school class and drew wound up making all state. Shortstop and teams were really intrigued. Not just by the power but by his versatility to he played shortstop but they thought he projected his second baseman third baseman. Maybe an outfielder. The possibilities of what drew robinson could be as a baseball player were endless. So scouts were noticing the power versatility and in two thousand ten drew graduates from high school and get drafted. He gets drafted by the texas rangers in the fourth round. And it's a huge moment for him but it doesn't translate in the end jeff too. Big league play what happens. Well he took a while to get to the big leagues. And you know we've seen bull durham and we understand kind of on a surface level. What the minor leagues are like. But for drew it was truly agree. I knew i was beard. Don't get me wrong. But in the moment i was still like. Don't mess this up. I wouldn't allow myself to understand. That mistakes are just mistakes. It doesn't define who. I was

"This has been Tom Verduci Jay Bilas. Christine's and we just hung out with Hanka Zahra and We've been talking all day long. Bull Durham because it was. Was it thirty two years ago today? Nineteen eighty. Wow I hit a theater. One of the greatest movies of all time period I'm not just saying that because he's on the phone minute enough to call in, and he's one of the favorite people that my wife and I have met here in Los, Angeles, but He's director of Bull Durham and other great films He. Is none other than Ron Shelton. How're you Ron? I'm glad you called Mitch? Because I can stop watching the Nebraska State Cornel Championship for the fourth. How does it turn out? Ron, I don't mind it being spoiled. How does it turn out? That guy bits the other guy. Guys. I Guess Happy Anniversary Ron Thirty two years ago today. I didn't know it's pretty frightening that it was that long. Wear just trying to. No idea that the movie would be received the way it has been and. You know you just. It was my first movie as a director. Just hope somebody goes to the theater, so you can get another job and. So, it really was a glorious shock how it was. Hello well play. When did you first realize it was going to? He had a hit on your hands. Ron. Well the reviews were great, and you never quite know. It didn't test all that well, which is. Strange because audiences laughed and cheered and then. And then wrote on the cards forty seven as I can make it better. So, we weren't sure, but it did great out of the box, and it just kind of chugged along all summer so. After the second week in when people kept going it didn't it didn't go down. we thought we were in good shape. Now did everyone you want to be cast in the roles? Get the get the gigs or somebody that That you you wanted that didn't make it or vice versa. No we got everybody was a long process. I had Kevin. Because I showed him the script and he was on board and. every woman forty did a great audition for Anti. it was amazing, and then we. When Susan. Got The part and was you know couldn't imagine anybody else, but. The nuclear lose part was hard to cast to be honest because. A Lotta guys look like young versions of Kevin, and you couldn't have young and older Kevin, so we had to find somebody who was competing and and love a bolt and goofy. And You know Tim had never been in a movie he'd actually been in Howard the duck, but he didn't tell us remember. That was the biggest flop. He told us he'd never been in a show. Okay now. We had Tom for duty on before Ron. The baseball reporter overheard US talking about this. He said the current braves manager. Lent his. Glove as his catcher's meant for Kevin in this film. Is that a true story? I never heard that one before. snigger yeah, Net Korea. SNICKER, there was a bunch of guys. Grady little with the manager of the actual Durham. Bulls we came into shoot. Right out to the season's over. And he was just a guy like crash Davis at the end of our movie grinding out. And, so I met him and I said. Can you find some minor? League ballplayers and college ball players who are needing. A couple of months of work and run the baseball and so grady little round the baseball. For us long before he became the manager of the dodgers in talks and something around, and maybe the minor leagues. 'cause that was a braves organization. Durham in those days. And Yeah, he somehow we got his glove. I I. I've stayed in touch with SNIP bullet years and. So it's in this case, he's not lying. Gosh. Oh Wow so. What what would you consider the best baseball movie of all time? Ron. I. Is Pretty tough base. One movies are original.

"Book back to almost famous minute. Where we're discussing. The two thousand Cameron Crowe Film almost famous. One Minute at a time. I'm Eric Nash. From feels like weezer foresight from. Let's say edge of tomorrow minute. Mcc pleasant From the World. I'm a comedy writer and Just elated welcome. Suzy glad to have you on my. I think I became most aware of you at least kind of recently from a star wars minute and and then then even recently. You're on bull. Durham in it. I got I am tearing up the minute scene. Yeah it's pretty great. You're knocking out a wide range of genres to hear from. Yeah yeah to the sports to the Rock Rock Music Rock Music David. This is your first time with us too. I shouldn't they certainly shouldn't forget you but you're kind of our our unofficial co host happening. He's cuppers minutes that we're going to have you. Yeah good good to be here Big Fan of this movie some. I'm happy to do as much. Co host duties. You need me for saying yeah thank you. Yeah we always have. We always have either of you back For other minutes but this man is meant forty six week and it starts with Russell getting electrocuted and ends with Marc Maron yelling at the band in the electrocution scene man. That's pretty grisly. I think Russell does a pretty good job of well not Russell. But you know that actor's name thank you. Yeah it seems to try and say it disappears from Ed. Bill does a good job of making me feel like he is a real lump of meat that just got cooked on a state of man. It's it's disturbing Yanni really keeps it up to. I mean it's there's there's parts during the sped next to especially Where he just he just really continues to be really out of it really well that they didn't know one called it an ambulance. That's buried the seventy lake. We're like mine. You're just got electrocuted a little bit. Because because I've got a little bit of a morbid streak I had to look up other famous onstage electrocutions. Ooh Yeah so Turns George Harrison was electrocuted in the let it be documentary so you can actually watch him put his lips to the megaphone and get like a little shaky doesn't collapse or anything like that but he does sort of back off shows a little bit of visible pain and you can find that clip on YouTube Keith Richards I was thinking I was going to have to wait until Peter Jackson's done here with Dr. Welby reassembling of Lee keeping it in keeping that part. Maybe that'll be the focus of it. Now lose be like the movie where George gets electrocuted Keith. Richards was also electrocuted. But it was much more like what happens on stage here In nineteen sixty five in Sacramento. His Guitar bumped into an ungrounded MIC stand. Apparently sparks flew in. There was a loud bang and the manager actually thought that Keith had been assassinated. They did rush him to the hospital unconscious and heap. He did not wake up until I think it was later that day in the hospital and he woke up and said man that was good. Probably Rush. I think I'll do that. I thought of. I haven't seen a movie since it came out in theaters And so I forgot. I forgot everything because I know a larger memory and yeah so when I watched the minute before I went back in like watch the rest of the movie And I was like Oh if he on drugs flake I was like are they pretending to be elected because he's on drugs like I couldn't remember if there was like a drug thing so anyway but but it makes sense that he gets electrocuted. I guess it's just like because you don't think about rockstars. Getting electrocuted probably happens a lot less than it did in the seventy S or sixty S. Or whatever when you know now that technology is pretty good like but I wonder if anybody has recently only guess you looked it up like actually. Isn't that famous? Still have you for sure there? I mean there's a long string of them from the seventy so it was definitely like a you know we quit and quite figured out how to ground these things yet. like As freely was electrocuted from kiss and he actually wrote a song about it called shock me later on and then but there are actually people who died from electrocution In the seventies. Yeah Yeah let's Harvey from stone. The crows which was sort of a pub rock band in the early Seventies. He died in in Wales from poorly grounded. Mike Electrocution and Keith Ralph. From the yardbirds died in his basement recording studio from an improperly grounded guitar apparently but yet there's actually a kind of a grisly video. You can find of the band. Hot Hot heat Playing an outdoor festival in Ohio. Somewhere in I don't remember exactly what year it was like. Fairly like the twenty tens. I think where the one of the guitar players get electrocuted and collapses and it's very similar to this like no one really realizes what's happened until he's been laying on the ground for a couple of seconds and then you know the music kind of slowly fades out and everyone in the crowd was like what's going on and it so it's it's still sort of a modern problem. I think trying to put on an outdoor show with you know. Weather conditions in long runs of cable across a field and things like that makes it more dangerous. But Yeah Yeah. I didn't realize how dangerous rock and roll lists the threat and there's other I think really good acting and decides besides just Russell Billy's You know I mean there's there's all this confusion is going on you know and then that's that's actually what jeff bb says. Hey what's going on we here? We also hear like this. Maybe I got it from somewhere or some Transcript site whatever but stinking stinking roads you know so. A roads roads fender bass wise at coming roads. Some some kind of Either Anchor Guitar. Some sort is the root. It's like a brand name erodes Oregon too but I didn't see any of that hanging out instead. Yeah and noticed that both Jeff and Russell. Have like to have two microphones on their MIC stand Sort of tied together which was kind of a weird seventies thing that they did do. That was Sometimes if they rip especially if they were recording the show. You'd have one Mike that fed the PA in one that went to the recording stuff But apparently the grateful dead also did this sort of a weird early form of noise canceling because they would they would put their speakers. Grateful dead put their speakers behind them and did a lot of like weird separation so like the base when we came out of this portion and the guitar came out of his portion to train gift. Things a little more dynamic separation but apparently if you put too close together and you do one in positive polarity in one in negative polarity sort of does some fancy noise cancelling thing on really know but apparently is common in the seventy s until we figured out you know plug ins and laptops and things so very cool. I'm writing so much I do have been baby myself. I was GonNa say you wonder if he's ever seen that before but yeah well the the big thing I've seen is that You know it looks. It seems like there's there's a there's a fair amount of duct tape that I think has happened there at at at Russell's microphone and I've seen lead singer do that before I've done sound work with a few bands quite a few years ago. There was one that Kevin just started going crazy with taping like okay. If you want to do that you're that that's interesting. I wouldn't at seems unsafe. Well I don't know. Duct tape is Great. I guess no don't don't don't know absolutely. I never thought I came from the south. Everything's held together with duct tape. I'm the other thing that that that's at. The very beginning of it is the that the plumbing song is ending. I mean it's not really ending. That's not supposed to end but it's ends because of everyone leaving their instruments in running towards wrestling then than certainly away getting off the stage but You know in the draw. I think in a normal fashion. I think the drums are kind of the one that kind of goes along. The drummer can just be on his own groove and I mean he's sexy Griffin centrally and. Yeah he and he can't maybe can't see what's happening sunders obstruction. Yeah Ding dongs. Away can't Ding dongs meaning drums. Let's that's what I'm gonNA call them now. You know what I'm talking about the hidden things drummers love it when you call me being Donner's I think too so. Oh Yeah Yeah. They totally loved that. Because it's very cool in rock and roll.

"Bull Durham she married Tim Robbins also bull Durham none of them were in major league I don't think we said any of those actors and actresses were majorly we're talking about the actors have played opposite Kevin Costner in the football movie draft day that's a name we were looking for thank you for your participation much appreciated Seoul let's see when the Senate opened its impeachment trial by swearing an oath to only do impartial justice a citizen might ask whether such a thing is impossible in this day and age we're gonna start there with professor Adam white he is a resident scholar at the American enterprise institute where his expertise the Supreme Court in the administrative state he's an assistant professor of law at the Scully along college are the Scully a law school I should say at George George Mason University soul how can very very partisan senators and twenty twenty ever do impartial justice even the founders Sir professor must realize this is almost impossible to reconcile yes it's reconcilable I think if you understand the Senate's proper role in our constitutional structure the back of the Senate is always supposed to be a check and balance against both the house and the president and impeachment in error sorry in impeachment the Senate called upon to do both and they're supposed to you know prevail I as opposed to this will be cooler heads as your road to a saucer to the high the house is hot coffee in other words are supposed to kind of ride herd on not only the host of both the house and the president yes that's what Alexander Hamilton warned us about that's right the the saucer metaphor was president Washington he understood that the legislative process the center would be the place where are the Senate would be the place where cooler heads will prevail with the presidency they're they're the Senate's influence is two fold first of course like the house the Senate the part of Congress can check about the president a variety ways but second the Senate has unique powers on the wall in administration itself the appointment of officers of the appointment of diplomatic officers and in dealing with treaties and so on and then ultimately the final lever which is the trying of impeachment I think that's key by the way we so often say that it's the president who's on trial that's true of course the more the president is on trial the senator results of the constitution itself says that the Senate will try the impeachment which has an eye to both the president and the house that impeachment Alan Dershowitz contends that abuse of power is not grounds for impeachment as you're right or wrong on that I just fundamentally disagree with him on this by my professor Dershowitz a lot a lot of my first and favorite law professors I think that a fair reading of the founding air debates and the term that they incorporated into the constitution high crimes and misdemeanors has correctly always been interpreted as being not all crimes but not but also not just crimes and extraordinary abuses of the public trust those that are held in others recognized does fall within the ambit of high crimes and misdemeanors who decides what is true statesmanship what is public trust trust in what is abuse of power ultimately the people decide you often hear people say that high crimes and misdemeanors means whatever the Senate says it means I I don't agree I don't agree with that a lot of like most cynical way the fact is high crimes and misdemeanors is a constitutional term constitutional law we need to take seriously what it means it can't just mean anytime the Senate dislikes or the house dislike the particular president you can't mean that at the same time high crimes and misdemeanors doesn't really susceptible has never even before America's use of it in English law it was never susceptible to an obvious clear precise meaning so what it requires is in the first instance the senator is to take a serious look at whether a particular alleged offense for the president rises to the level of fundamental violation of the public trust in and for me I think it's important that it you know offensively but can't be easily resolved within the usual course of business of politics like elections only on those extremely rare situation do do do does arise level high crimes and misdemeanors so it's the Senate the first instance and then ultimately the people and the judge of the district Adam white is I hear that since our voices opinion in as scholarship he is the he's a resident at the American enterprise institute is also the sclera law school at George Mason University if antonyms Golia was in fact a a presiding over this how do you think he would handle it I genuinely does has a very good question justice Scalia I think what it would call for for greater precision and what high crimes and misdemeanors means I think you'll be slightly less comfortable than I am with the idea that high crimes and misdemeanors doesn't have a completely sticks meaning he was a strong textual of other conservative justices would I think take a lower grade was for example might take slightly broader definition I think right the school year that will be grateful that he's not in the middle of all this I don't think any record justice Rodgers R. Chief Justice relishes being dragged into literally the political arena like this is it safe to say professor an impeachment was never intended to be essentially a tool for policing run of the mill incompetence absolutely when the framers in in the Philadelphia convention in seventeen eighty seven were discussing the future provision they suggested a few other terms one one two yes was mallet ministration and Madison in particular rejected this of vocal a he said we can't turn the presidency into a prime ministership we can't have the president just serving at the pleasure of the Senate we need separated powers we need a truly independent president so just a run of the mill miss administration definitely should not be the subject of impeachment so is the constitution trust the Senate to guard against the president and the people are supposed to keep your eye on the house as the people's house not the equivalent of the house of lords who person who watches who is the gatekeeper who's the overseer of the center alternately we are originally under the original constitution was the state legislature to appoint senators what we the people are are ultimately the judges of of the Senate that's a great challenge in impeachment the it's not the kind of thing that usually wind up in court there is a whole body of court precedent and so ultimately it comes to the to the people in the judgment of history to decide whether the president who was impeached was properly impeach or not professor one until my listeners a number of times and I'm I'm on a right of center guy but I'm not really a big trump sort of guy and I find his actions to be disturbing and off putting to say the least that being said I understand why he was impeached I heard the call I read the transcript I understand what obstructionist I get all that I don't think it rises to the level of removing him from office impeachment fine don't remove Vasant office if I was a Republican senator I would say yes I buy it from Adam Schefter Nadler another's a to B. B. to C. C. today fine it's still not worth what would do the country to remove the president has an illegitimate sort of position or my just being too wishy washy and one in both ways no I think it's a legitimate position I for one am very very worried about the notion of impeaching the president simply for exercising executive privilege executive privilege is at the core constitutional value it's as old as Congress's oversight powers are and I think it would be a mistake to have the Senate and the house tried to wipe it out of American constitutional law now the president's conduct with respect to Ukraine for me has always been very troublesome if it can be shown that the president did intentionally try to leverage U. S. hard assets and resources to to get a poor country to get involved in our politics that for me does rise to the possible level of an impeachable offense I really do hope the Senate brings in witnesses with more first hand information or opinions as to what the president's real mindset and objectives were here but I know just to double down on my my point even if they do and it's corroborated I I still don't think it warrants removal we we have that opportunity in November I I think that your position even on that is totally reasonable I'm not sure yet which way I would go on this what gives me pause is the fact that if the weeds are the worst case scenario is true the president was trying to do that with an ID election then either in effect trying to undermine the election that we hoped would otherwise decide the question and so I do think that the Senate ought to kick the tires on this before deciding whether to remove but removal from office has never been done before and I I agree that this isn't a soda for the time you want to break the glass the first time so so why thank you very much for your time and expertise as this continues on as we know well hoping calling you again John anytime thank you our John six forty seven let's take a look at the roads on the even sample for the junctional lake cook is fifteen it will.

"If people think the pitchers didn't start too many games that they didn't have too many innings. They should get back. To what we did last year in spring training. I mean, we played until October twenty eighth and the previous year when I got here. Everybody was talking about how they ran out of bullets etcetera etcetera. He's he's standing by. And he's saying the famous bull Durham line. It's a long season and you've got to trust it. And I guess when you started having ERA of thirteen point to you gotta juiston. Meanwhile, their general manager can can step aside from this for a second say as far as our bullpens concerned, didn't I tell you? So because the bullpen has been exemplary. It's been fine bullpen who. Which was the only major issue that people felt about this team going into the season all the other basis where properly covered they felt except for the bullpen. And and so what happens to the heard the numbers on the stars? And the bullpen terrific, which just what? What does show? Day. Even yesterday the way they can hit. They nearly came all the way back from ten to three yesterday on. No, they don't they don't quit there. And here's the other thing that clearly already in just three games, Bryce Harper has earned back all three hundred don't you? Don't you? Don't you? I mean well. Win wins a win. I mean, they've they've won. So you know, it's his presence is making them win apparent. They're the only team with an unblemished slate after just four games played into the season. Though. It's you know, there's a lot of before we end here. And we're talking about the beginning of the baseball season. How about the end of the basketball season for LeBron James as if it wasn't bad enough that he's gonna miss the playoffs. He's just not gonna play period. And now the Lakers are spinning this that this was our idea Luke Walton said he wants to play, but it's one of those things where the medical staff just finally said, look, it's just not worth it anymore. Let's make sure you have a healthy summer. Okay. Whether this is LeBron James is decision. Like a I don't wanna play garbage time. Okay. And and or whether this is the Lakers protecting their investment if what they're saying about him being hurt to a degree and having a sketchy groin injury. I'm gonna. Go back to what I said and next to your two years from now, I'm going to go back to that podcast where I said to you guys groin is not to be taken lightly at that age. I would never doubt any crimes I will registered Mitch. We will if the subject agent groins. He's going on young groin. He's growing guy..

He's gotta grow back a little bit strong degree tough on that's up there with like who has looked the best in a movie, ever Costner and bull Durham is on the list. Obviously the answer is Harrison Ford in witness, obviously is that. Oh my God. Nobody is ever looked the Harrison Ford in witness. Yeah. Is your number one? Oh, yeah. Who else is it? This is where Sean is going to bar. Jan be like guys had a recording about function Harrison Ford with this only God. Yeah. Wow. I gotta make my list for the opposite sex. I think about this.

"Field to dreams the natural moneyball. Oh, it's like money bar major league. I love money by that was one of the first three watchable as we ever did was moneyball, which has become a severely. Underrated two thousand tariffs movie. It's in the discussion and has really great scenes in it and goes back to the point of how the best baseball movies, kind of represent whatever. The arrow is bad news bears. Seventies. Completely politically incorrect. Inappropriate. But so were the seventies. It's perfect, right. When they rebate it. It was a disaster because they had to make a political crack version of it which defeated the purpose of why we had that movie go to the eighties the natural field of dreams major league with the old school kind of start to finish rags to riches rocky as a baseball team. Does that whole thing bull Durham will also in the eighties eighties? Good era for baseball move. When when we're really for the first time being like, how can we take that rocky motto and actually go the next level with how we read a movie, and that's Ron shell. And that's his biggest legacy. And then we go into the late nineties and movie like for love of the game. Where people are like we've seen every kind of sports movie. How do we now merge this with other John RAs and for love of the game has some of the best baseball scenes of any movie? The other stuff is so bad it kind of taints it. But then by the time, we get to moneyball now, it's like, we've graduated seven levels beyond. What a sports movie is. Now, it's like this is about a movement that happened in a sport. And it just happens to be about baseball. Right. And that's where we are now. Yeah. I I love all of those. I'm also personally partial to the ones that came out when I was a kid, and we're about kids so like. Liberty here league angels with your favorite does. Man. I probably little big league. I I most watched that a hundred times when I was a kid we eight between that and little giants though, I got what broken arm on is that that's that's rookie. Dear little big league. He's the manager producer Craig how many of these have you seen most of them. Guys them said the sandlot the sandlots amazing. The San lot is we have to watch Ables on the sandlot rookie are nineteen Ninety-three. When was the Sanela, let's say nine also ninety three so interesting. Interesting little tidbit here. My entry point the baseball movies with my son. Yeah. The three movies that he loved bad news bears breaking training k which is real. I mean that is that that is one of the greatest movies ever made the sandlot. Yeah. And major league. The natural way to so no way he's getting through that field of dreams. No way bull Durham now.

"Morgan Freeman's life. They all get Jerusalem's his third dude there who is marian's brother, maid marian's, brother hater. I am Peter. Did you tell my sister them sorry? And I'm going to die best. He was just he was almost in the Merryman basic decisions to get cut out, by the way, the first of many it begins with like this guy who's and gets off. And he's like, well, here's tried to get Kurd from law, and then Kevin Costner pointly says, well, here's English courage before it gets the guy to chop. That's there's dick actually is. And I was reading some stuff on it. Like, Emily Freeman for a Muslim character is really well represented like he's a good guy through and through. But he's always a Muslim. He's never like, oh, it'd be fucking shitty. If you converted or something. The middle of the movie all of a sudden there's no seen or some would be shitty. Because that it would be a shitty movie instead of a very good. I appreciate it. Like it's down to like there are multiple scenes in this movie where Morgan Freeman's like refusing alcohol actual thing. And it's not just him being a Moslem moving up. Yeah. Exactly. Actually, take time to sort of map all that out. He's mentioning a lot quite a bit mill. And he's shown to be like, the smartest. One of all they do a lot with it. I it was really weird though when they had the depiction of the prophet Muhammad came down and visited them. All right. I don't think they should depicted him. What animated too? Know what I didn't. Appreciate though, it's the first of a laundry list of them in this film. Morgan Freeman Zach sent put that in the fuck and Staten Island dumb. That thing is sucks dogs. He didn't give shit about this. So clearly it's crazy though. Like clearly several of them did not. Yes. But for such a massively budgeted film. That's very surprising Christian Slater who I love terror. To do that voice that he's doing this English accent? Now, I know accents. He's drying whenever Kevin Costner's involved. Eric has rose tinted glasses. We know this. I know weird that I I think it's just because I was young at the time. And I kinda grew up in a Kevin Costner world. What's your take on bull Durham there? It's fine. People go crazy crazy on the not one of them. Okay. That's movie that I was like sometimes films enter the criterion collection. I'm like all right that when bull Durham entered the criterion collection. I was like slow fucking I full Durham, but like what? Okay. I know for factors. Probably scared. Japanese filmmaker fair share e to mama tambien or to mama bull Durham cut where they all get into bed together and figure it out. Now, we're talk now we're gonna movie that's the Costner cut up looking for. So we we make our way we escape out of this prison. They hilariously face smash some fruit because those starving which it was a scene. I love I love someone Morgan Freeman just like breaks open this melon, and they just fucking start eating it out. Awesome. Oh. Pardon me. Well, you knew it. Yeah. They we cut to Brian blessed reading the letter. And man, it is like dad is writing a letter. He is going to town on this letter. Did you notice behind him on the wall? There was a medieval painting of Kevin Costner. I wanted to mention it because it is the funniest thing. It's great because this is like pre renaissance artist terrible. Yeah. It's this is reminded me of when that fucking crazy art world story came out where like somebody was hired to restore some classical. It was it was I think it was expanded. It was a portrait of Jesus that someone then was going to restore and then like they fucked it up so much look like a portrait of cartoon recessed. Which is one of the funniest of buckles of all time. And you look at a painting of an animal a dog or a cat pre nineteen seventy one you're in trouble. But this I mean this fucking portrait of Robin of Loxley hanging on this dudes wall is atrocious..
