A History of Women and the Olympics
"So a lot of the story has to do with french. Feminist alice milia and her women's world games which took place from nineteen twenty two to nineteen thirty four and led the olympics leading women compete in events on a much wider scale. Yeah there's a lot of acronyms in this one so bear with us. The women's world games were yaas response to the international olympic committee's or the international association of athletics. Ias disdain and vera. I wave feminists gaining ground and a lot of women wanting to compete in certain events. Like the eight hundred batur track event events that did not recognize women or have been deemed unfit for women. Yes this eight hundred meter track of it. We're going to get into it. But it caused a lot of controversy when it came to women competing so at this time people and particularly in this context europeans or already talking about gender equality the term. Feminism is thought to have been coined in the eighteen eighties by a french activist by the name of coubertin claire around the same time. Baron pierre do cooper thanh who was also. French founded the modern iteration of the olympics. And the i o dagobert on outright opposed women's participation in sports and this bled over into what events he believed women could and should compete in when it came to the olympics. Day cooper ten allegedly said that the olympics were created for quote the solemn and periodic exaltation of male athleticism with quote female applause as reward. Wow he went on to say quote it is. Indecent spectators should be exposed to the risk of seeing the body of a woman being smashed before there is besides no matter how tough sportswoman may be. Her organism is not cut out to sustain certain shocks her nerves rule. Her muscles nature wanted it that way again day. Cooperstown reason that grow as no women participated in the ancient games. There obviously was to be no place for them in the modern ones. Which just as a brief aside isn't the whole truth sat really the point. But he's wrong. In general yes so the nineteen hundred games or the first allowed women to compete though not officially sanctioned twenty two out of nine hundred ninety seven of the competitors or women and they competed in tennis golf sailing. Equestrian and croquet only golf and tennis. Had all women
Remembering Atlanta Braves legend and longtime MLB home run king Hank Aaron
"It was a sad day in baseball last week. When hank aaron passed away at age eighty six. One of the all time greats sluggers in baseball history. He wasn't amazing player. An amazing person. And when you think about hank. Aaron and his impact on a game it was tremendous. Think about this hank. Aaron played in the negro leagues hank. Aaron came up to the big leagues and was a star from day one. And when you look at his body of work. It is an incredible incredible degree of consistency. When you think that hank aaron batted three oh five. Seven hundred and fifty five home runs almost averaged hundred. Rbi is twenty three seasons and think about this. If you took away as seven hundred and fifty five home runs from his hit total he still would have three thousand hits. Which by itself get you into the hall of fame so not only does he have three thousand hits. He has a five hundred home. More than five hundred home runs. Those two are markers for me that automatically get my vote and then when you think about what he had to go through to become the homerun champ and the hey and the threats and the racism that was pointed towards him. Think about that People saying that they were going to shoot him. Kill his kids and this guy never never came undone never lashed out at people never got angry. Just kept playing ball kept his head down. He is definitely someone you can admire. And then he did weeks that milestone passing babe ruth and what a monumental moment that was when hank aaron became the all time home run king and i know people some people say he's still my home run king and is not barry bonds and i don't really wanna get into the whole debate about this. This is about hank. Aaron and what he did. I respect what hank aaron put up his numbers he put up but in the record books he's number two and that's where he is and that's what i respect and there's nothing wrong with being number two when when you put up the body of work that hank aaron has done he will be missed. What an impact. He's had and the grace and the dignity everything he play with and he was a world series champion and he was a steady as a as a as a get. Never hit fifty home runs. How can a guy play twenty years. Hit all those home runs and never had those big years over fifty. It's it's an amazing amazing accomplishment. And hank aaron will definitely be missed

"Cooperstown Arguments are a little louder this year with no one elected. Here's our Bomani Jones. But if you're not gonna put those guys in, can you at least get around to putting in the greatest defensive center fielder of all time? Andrea Jones, like for whatever reason, while you're going here to doing this ridiculous stuff with those two guys. This dude's the best center fielder there ever was, and he hit 400 home runs, and we're having to convince you to even think about putting him in the Hall of Fame, which is to say none of you guys make any sense on any level on anything that you do with the Hall of Fame. So if you're gonna be a hater on those guys for steroids, how about marveling at one of the greatest athletes you've ever seen Play baseball and put him in number four. Sooners knock off Number five.

You should have took in the easy fight 50 million, right? So He literally just got knocked out. Embarrassed in front of the whole entire world, the worst fight he's ever had for $5 million, But he could have bought a youtuber kid for 50 million, So I think now they regret it. I don't even know if I would consider it like I want to fight with bigger, but it's just not as high peasant was before. I think he has to go get some wins under his belt, and then maybe I'll consider number one people in Green Bay. Red Farm says Come on, I wouldn't pay much attention to it. I think frustration, disappointment, hurt pain all were in that that sound bite. Look, there's no way the Packers would do anything to jeopardize losing Erin. You know, unless they're just chooses retire, which I would be shocked guys playing better now than he's ever played, and without him, you certainly wouldn't have been Even close to where you were yesterday, and I think the same way it will go for next year and it is it really the next few years if he chooses the plate. And on the heels of that Aaron Rodgers even beating.

"The Mills Commission published a report stating that baseball was really definitely certainly American, through and through and that double day had invented the game around the year. 18 39 Further in Cooperstown, millionaire named Steven See, Clark felt that tourism was the only industry that could save his hometown, which was suffering during the Great Depression. A local farmer in Cooperstown or near Cooperstown. Actually, just outside of it discovered some of what were believed to be Abner Graves. Belongings in 1935. This farmer was a Relative of Abner Graves and while going through one of the old houses said, Hey, there's this trunk here, and it's got some stuff in it. Some photographs some letters. There's also A bone. Very similar to the type they've been used in the early days of baseball. Which Clark jumped on as definitive proof that this story was absolutely gospel, and he decided to create a new destination in Cooperstown. He declared that the baseball that was discovered Was an Abner Doubleday baseball, and he began plans to build a baseball museum with the whole venture anchored to the idea that Cooperstown was the birthplace of the game. It would be ready to celebrate the centennial anniversary of baseball, according to the double Day story, which means that it would be ready in 1939 more on that in a second. There are more than a few problems with Abner Graves. A story problem number one in 18 39. Abner Graves would have been five years old Abner Doubleday he supposed inventor of baseball would have been nearly 20 years old. And it seems unlikely that the two would have played together in a game of baseball. A 20 year old teaching a five year old how to play baseball. In order to have an organized game of some sort does not seem very realistic Problem. Number two in 18 39. Abner Doubleday wasn't in Cooperstown, New York, He was enrolled in West Point and didn't have leave to travel from campus until the summer of 18 40. Even then, it was not for more than just a little bit more than a month. So problem three and all the surviving journals and papers that were written by Double day, None of them mentioned baseball. In fact, the on ly connection to baseball with Doubleday at all seems to be that he once requested some sporting equipment during his service in the Union Army for the purposes of Recreation for soldiers. Problem. Number four. Alexander Cartwright, Junior who was a founding member of the Knickerbocker Club in New York, was believed to be the person who drew out the structure of the baseball diamond and wrote down the rules for the first time in 18 45. And unlike the claim made by graves, this claim actually had documentation to back it up. But the Hall of Fame is in Cooperstown, New York, anyway. Now, thanks for indulging me and my love of history and flim flam. Next, we're going to talk about the evolution of the baseball bat and the physics behind whacking a baseball really hard. But first, let's take a quick break to thank our sponsor..

For the fourth straight meeting of Golden State in Cleveland in the NBA finals rated twelve percent lower on average than the first three don't blame the players. Don't blame the teams. They are all brilliant. They all deserve to be celebrated. But also, don't let anyone tell you. They are good for the sport. Because those people are absolutely positively wrong. Let us take this to the table. Jalen, I hear you nodding over there is one who has been telling me that I'm crazy about Golden State ruining basketball. You're gonna tell me you agree or disagree. I disagree dynasties. Terrific magnificent fantastic for sports, and it may not play out in the ratings of the final Super Bowl or the NBA finals. But I'll tell you during the journey it makes it interesting when the Golden State Warriors show up to play against any said team in January or the New England Patriots. Because those become the measuring sticks for the season. And they become con- conversation pieces for us to continue to talk Tel Aviv. Crazy. No. I totally. Agree with Jalen not gonna take several steps backwards with yesterday. So we I agree because at some point you have to have who is going to be Goliath who are we slang? What is the point of this entire season? Who do we need to take down and for women's basketball? That's the Connecticut huskies right now in NFL the patriots in the NBA the warriors. There's a reason why every single league has a team like that. There's one person that's figured out a program. There's one team there's a coach and there's a player that is a legend. And we always like to look back on these dynasties. I mean, I love living in the midst of Alabama dynasty because I'm going to be able to talk about in reference it later, but it's the same thing. We just need someone to slay may. I just ask you re if I can cut you off there on the Alabama Clavell subject. Because no one is more societas with college football than you. You're at all these games everyone. Sees you on the biggest game every week. How many people said you my goodness. I'm sick of seeing Alabama Clemson here. We'll say there's a lot of people rooting against Alabama. Don't get it twisted. But at the same time, that's great. That's a conversation. Let's talk about it. Why do you hate? Why do you Nick Sabin and Alabama winning every single game? When they figured it out. I don't know that you hate it as much as you just sort of get tired of seeing it. How many people have walked up to you and said boy I wanted to see Patrick Mahomes in the Super Bowl d would tell them their crazy. Oh, I've had many people people family like we we we need some new we need some new blood of here. But I you know, I wonder if the Dallas Cowboys were were the the New England Patriots per se. Well, we'd be having the same discussion. No Talboys are such a popular team. And they're so polarizing I guarantee you because the whole narrative is the numbers the ratings the Cowboys rate will so we'd be having the same. Discuss your correct? I think the Cowboys generate a level of interest whether the good bad or otherwise that other teams do not the Yankees.

These guys are shotgun. Doing all types of spread principles. Any smart coach is going to implement things that made him successful in college. So absolutely column Murray can succeed in the national football. I am buying all of Kyla Mary stock like, I don't care. You can quote, it take it write it down. But this is a kid. He's never lost. He didn't lose an high school. He didn't lose in college. He won the Heisman. And he waited his turn to do that. And he's really smart like as soon as he picks up a playbook. He's like I understand everything about it. That's something that we don't talk about enough, and he can make all the throws like the the kid is never. He's never feeling as though he cannot finish a play complete a player, execute the way needs. We literally have one quarterback five foot ten or shorter who has ever won an NFL game since the merger, and that's Flutie. So I'm not suggesting you can't do it. I'm saying it hasn't been done before it would be evidence. More than anything else of just how much the game has changed if he's able to come in and not just win a little. You're not drafting a guy in the first round to win the little to be a star player. I think he'd be a starter in potentially a star player. I think what matters to me. More watched. Football about quarterbacks is their accuracy. If he could put the ball where he wants to put it. I think that's all that matters. And I agree with Damian the off the college principles are moving into NFL. I'm not sure that I would buy all the column Mary stuff. But I certainly wouldn't bet against the one thing that I do like is the baseball stuff. Right. We've seen it for mostly Wilson. We've seen it for Patrick Mahomes. There doesn't seem to be a lot to baseball translating to being an NFL quarterback. All right coming up. Are you tired of seeing the New England Patriots and this dynasty in the Super Bowl? I'm going to explain why if you are you are definitively not alone, get them on ESPN. Indeed knows it's hard to find qualified candidates when you're.

"I think that this has to be the end of the run something has happened something that's a catch up to otherwise, I'm gonna start worshipping them. It's closer. There's no other explanation for this. Then maybe Bill Belichick Brady will be forty two years old by the time next season begins a former patriots standing over here. Looking. The floor is yours. The flow is mind me who agree that this year has been the most vulgar, we've the most vulnerable patriots team that we've seen a long time. Would you agree with that? Yes. And you're trying to wait. I'll wait I'll wait the most vulnerable team that we've seen in a long time. And yet here we are at Super Bowl forty five fifty three who who's planning super with the patriots. So the most vulnerable team, and they're still in it. And you think that they'll never never been in it, again, they're going to get they're only going to get more and more vulnerable, and because I believe in facts and logic, and they have defied logic and facts for forty long at some point at the cats up to and this year is going to be there. They might win the Super Bowl. But next year, they're not going back through. He's forty two. Forty two years old, correct? He will be vanishing next. He's trying to talk yourself into less much. Bill Belichick Mon is not as really still sharp as ever HR. The patriots. They adapt to anything that. You wanna do? We don't see. Tom Brady had talking about all all field. I win. They win a multitude of ways of Riecke aways. I agree. So very clear, you believe that you. We will see the patriots in another Super Bowl again after this one. Yes. Morning fair enough. We have to go back over there. And join Marian alleyoop he's carried Dominico for only appropriate way for this defense. Spheres. On ever hear guy out of control. We have another discussion to have it. And it's not about Tom Brady. It's about Murray who's looking at challenge the conventional thinking regarding quarterbacks and their size. But there's one coach who may be reevaluating the importance of having a tall quarterback. And it's Jon Gruden this week Gruden address the issue, and here's what he had to say. I used to think that a lot until I saw degrees twice a year in Tampa. Then I met Russell Wilson coming out of NC state. And now, I'm watching this kid Murray coming out of Oklahoma, and I'm putting away. All the prototypes. I once had used to have a prototype for hand size heights, arm strength, and all that stuff, but he's putting it away. Now, the question is do we by the fact that he's done prototyping players especially the quarterback position? Well, first of all that was a triumph carry off your celebrating because I want. I mean, Jon Gruden came back into the NFL kind of saying that he's gonna take things back to the nineties. Now, I'm supposed to believe that he's by the jump forward..

"What do you care? What else? Do you want? That's I'm looking to answering questions. It is time for answer. The question. I hold on my hands four pointed hard hitting direct questions that I will ask Dominique Foxworth, and he will be forced to answer them equally directly. Here we go. Number one, Dominique it has been the controversial topic here and everywhere since the end of Kansas City in New England, Patrick Mahomes. Never gets the ball. Should the National Football League changed their overtime rule? So that that doesn't happen again after I there's no way to change the overtime rule that ends up in less football. I don't want more football like it's a player safety issue. As far as I'm concerned in the idea that people wanna make it fair kind of foolish to me because there are lots of things about people that aren't fair you get better schedule with your team with terrible. That's not very good higher drastic of your team subject. That's not fair. And the only thing that is fair is a coin toss. What spare then Aucoin? Do you have a point on the end of the game? It's fine. You can't decide it in in the four quarters that your allotted. We flip the coin and figure it out there. I hope Maria Taylor was listening. That after the ruckus that she set off. This change the rules foolishness. Okay. You're one for one next after the controversy of the other game this weekend should everything in the National Football League be reviewable. No, I don't think. So I think they're plays. That are judgment calls and Richard Sherman had an interesting tweet after this saying that are we going to do this often the past you know, how many times we watch the game and his off at the pass interference. If you review it the rep is going to have to look at that and say, no, that's not offense path affairs. There's some things that are judgment calls and we can't overreact to an awful call. Let's just accept that. That was a bad call that never happened. And it's never going to happen again. But if we're not going to overreact to a call that changes the outcome of a championship game. What are we going to react to? It was an outlier have you ever seen a call that agree Disley missed before you can't overturn everything that you have just because you had something that happened. That's ridiculous. In rare the flip side to that. Is you have a problem that feels solvable and you're choosing not to sell them. You don't you? Don't you don't know the by the by product. Event to next question was Sunday through breezes last best chance to win another Super Bowl. I think that's an easy question. I think it was I think we all have seen drew Brees had a fantastic season. But this offense tailed off towards the end of the season. Some of that is the people that he has around him. We also saw the jewelries arm strength is waning. And it's I think it's pretty much gone. I don't think they brought teddy Bridgewater down there. Just for for giggles. They brought him down there because they see the end in sight. I think drew Brees is aware that also this team is not getting any better yet. Another reason why they need to change the rules because here's a hall of Famer who had his last best chance to win another championship taken away from them on a bad call that would have been easily correctable that there were too bad calls. We're showing both of them at this point. It would have been corrected. You can't overreact. Because you don't know what's going to happen. As a result of that. Now, I never getting past that answer final final one is this upcoming Super Bowl fifty three. The last time we will see Brady and Belle. Check in the Super Bowl. Yes, I believe it's the it's the last time because what they have done now is been so ridiculously unprecedent. It is almost a logical to say that they can continue to do it. It was a logical to happen Lasser. And at some point logic has to prevail. And logic tells me forty year old quarterbacks in forget for your quarterbacks. No team can dominate for as long as they dominated..

"Anyone at the table, disagree with that notion? I grew anyone though. Oh, happy in the hall. Absolutely. Not why not flagrant cheater. And you cheat yourself. You cheat the game, and you get caught you should not be reward. Okay. Let me. Let me tell you something. Jay, first of all, let's get off you how horse here I get hose. But Sealy not a mixed missing. In baseball is in the hall of fame who presided over the whole steroid error. Okay. Let's not pretend like that did not happen. And anyone I think we all can sit here and say that Barry Bonds was a hall of fame player even before he got into the whole stir where errors situation. So we can't pretend like this didn't happen in baseball. They put it in your sport. You feel you guys played against guys who were cheating or doping. We're doing other things. And did it did it perhaps influence the game in ways that were negative for yourselves? I didn't think so at the time, but I've come to learn that there's a lot more of it available than I thought was before. And it certainly bothers me, but I just don't believe in absolutes. Generally. I think that you could find justification for a lot of things it doesn't mean that you should. But in this in bond situations, clear justification is that he felt like everyone else in the sport was doing it. And no one was policing it. So he had to do it and football oftentimes, you're up on a contract here. And I could understand why would not encourage it understand that it is wrong. I understand if you're on a contract year, and you're either looking at million dollar contracts or finding a job at the foot locker. I think we can all understand why someone would make that decision. But isn't there a difference between understanding why someone would do again and rewarding them by putting them in the hall of fame, which is the greatest honor a player can possibly receive? We're we're we're constantly finding a way to take the kneecaps under away from a player. Like, I keep thinking about college basketball and say we found out that a coach, but he's a hall of fame coach and did it. So now, all of a sudden all of those championships and all of those wins. They don't matter you, cheated when the culture of college basketball is we pay players, and I don't think it's there. But as soon as we find out that a player did something wrong, in some way, shape or form, we take away. Like, you said the one thing that could be the highest honor bestowed upon their happening right now, Jim bejon. He's lost a lot of wins. But he's still is allowed to be the head coach of their team. And he's going to grow Famer. He's looked at different in baseball than it is in football, the fans and media. We don't care when football players cheat. Because when we wash the game, it's like, ooh fish. Physical. We understand why they would do it. But in baseball, it's the holy grail for the numbers. Very baas. I'm a left to his favorite baseball player. But once to me, you cross the line, and you we're knowledge the fact that somebody's a flat out cheater to me, you should reward them. I put them in all we will leave it there. There's one thing that never changes. Everyone has an opinion on this topic, by the way, Alex Rodriguez. We'll try man on this and more in our next hour. That's among the many things we have still to come here. This morning on get up. Cuyler Murray is challenging how tall quarterback should be so much. So one coaches changing his entire philosophy. You'll hear what was said about that. And whether or not we buy it, and and while Duke was crushing Pittsburgh on the road. Jailings wolverines needed every second at home.

"So I just want to make sure everyone is aware as he watched this. And I saw some some was in the room with Marianna when his family when he got this call. So I saw their reaction when he was when he was told that it was unanimous, and it was great. And this is no way to diminish him. He one hundred percent deserves to get one hundred percent of the vote. But I think we should point out. How ludicrous it was that. No one ever had before. That's absurd. I didn't know that until you shared that. With us this morning. I think that's ridiculous. But I think the argument on the other side, I guess people know that certain players that are get in. So they want to send their vote in another direction. But I do think it's unfair. Because that thing is being waived around as if mayor marrano Rivera somehow better than Hank. Aaron a better than these other guys when it comes down to these kind of measurements. I think I'm on your side. I think you should vote give one hundred percent or give up your vote. I I'm excited that they finally crossed that bridge because right now now we're not going to be a thing anymore. Like, you should be able to. To be a unanimous pick. What it does? Now is there are no excuses. So next year. Derek Jeter is eligible for the hall of fame and this process, by the way is not transparent are Jeff passan tweeted that he stopped voting for this. Because he believes there should be transparency. And it kinda wanna make the seem like it's the most important thing in the world. But to whatever degree it is important to you or to them. Then the reality is anyone who doesn't vote for Derrick jeeter for the hall of fame shouldn't have vote. If that's absolutely in writers need to be held to a higher standard. And media members will have some level of integrity, though, when you make a mockery of your vote. It should be taking away from you. When that does not happen. It now allows people to continue to foster their personal agendas, whatever they may be whether it's not voting in a player, whether they don't like a guy like those type of things should not be a part of your voting process. And let me get the other big story related to the hall of fame. Voting was the way it went yesterday for Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens. It was not what they were expecting. You see their their percentages climbed just slightly from last year. I think the overwhelming expectation was that they would climb more than that seem more on a trajectory to get to the seventy five percent threshold that is necessary. They both gained a lot over the years. They only have three years of eligibility remaining. And look this is a topic that has been out there for a really long time. But we haven't had a chance to talk about it. Just right off the top of your head without getting too deeply into it. But because everyone has an opinion. Do you believe players known to have used PD should be in the hall of fame? Absolutely should be. And how do you agree?.

"And then all of a sudden, they don't have any catches touches they front office knows how these things work out just as future front office. Are they concerned with these comments at all someone else? Take it the wrong way. Absolutely not. I don't think they are because they're not they're kind of benign comment. But I think these are the type of comments that. Fans normally overreacting. But I'm kind of surprised, but I would have expected a bit more backlash for guys like Colby's Louis, but I guess he's in Dallas. He's from Texas. He's a guy that a lot of fans can see themselves kind of like him under size underdog. So I think a lot of people on his side when it might have been another big name receiver. I think a lot of fans would turn on him and call him a diva. Well, I mean in many of cases, it might be. And maybe he's doing that as well. Part of this. I thought was the most interesting that you should take away from it is this happens all the time. This is not like just in Dallas. It's only because it's Dallas that I think it's getting all this attention. Well, let me go to the next door business here because the baseball hall of fame announced four new members last night. And so let's start congratulations. Edgar Martinez is finally in his final year on the ballot. He was a seven-time all-star with a career batting average of three twelve he was a designated hitter for the most part, and that's why it took them so long ROY halladay made it in his first year of eligibility to shame that he goes in posthumously. He's one of six pitchers to. Win the Cy Young award at both liens. He threw the second. No hitter ever in a playoff game might miss seen. This surprised that few people wasn't quite clear if he'd get in or not sixty year on the ballot good for him five time all star seventeen gold glove winner. Very good pitcher. And then, of course, Mariano Rivera. There wasn't any question about Rivera who last night joined our Scott van pelt on sportscenter to talk about getting that coal. They said that. Congratulated me for the hall of fame. And then he says, well, I have another news is what happened or you, you unanimous. Oh my God. Everybody went crazy. It was. It was amazing. It was amazing. I mean, my heart was -unding. It was like it was like it reminds me when you from. We just won the World Series. You know, that type of adrenaline that type of emotion. It was amazing. Okay. So let me just be real a second for just a millisecond as they say Hamilton Mariano Rivera one hundred percent deserved to be recognized in this way. He deserves to be hall of Famer. And he deserves to get one hundred percent of the vote. But let's not bury the lead don't say. He's the first player ever to get one hundred percent of the vote what we should be saying is he's the first player ever to get one hundred percent of the vote, hembo, when I just picked out a couple of examples of players who clearly should have gotten one hundred percent of the vote Cal Ripken junior played in two thousand six hundred thirty two consecutive games. And in addition put up numbers that no shortstop had ever even considered to be eight writers didn't vote for him on the ballot Nolan. Ryan had fifteen hundred more strikeouts than anyone else in history, and it felt like through no hitter every other week. Six writers didn't vote for him, Hank. Aaron retarded the all time leader in home runs, RBI's and total bases. And did it with a level of dignity? That is perhaps almost never been seen before in the history of sports nine writers didn't vote for him in one thousand nine hundred eighty two..

"Do you agree with them is the front office actually influencing who getting targeted and gains? They're absolutely agree with him. And I think that I mean front office is half the plan. They have to collaborate with their coaching staff, and they have to plan for the future. And I think it's quite obvious that they have some young receivers on that team that they want to have because of the price tag. And they have won top receiver in Amari Cooper. They're gonna pay and so easily it's been kind of planned out of the scheme. I think the question though, is is that uncommon because it's the Cowboys. It'll be a big headline. This could've come from a lot of other teams. And no one would have said anything. But because there's the Cowboys people will ask the question is that just something they do is Jerry Jones, you know, the guy behind the curtain pulling all the strings or does that happen on every team? Listen, this is not uncommon. I think people need to stand you going you want to hit the ball into your best players hands. So there's going to be communication, whether it'd be the coaches front office that if you're if you make a tray like the Dallas Cowboys made and get them. Ari Kupa don't wanna validate the reason that you gave them a first round bait. Yeah. You'd want to showcase the guy that you gave a first round pick four. So I'll say, yeah. Jerry Jones and Stephen Jones, they're going to have a say into as far as a coach look we need to feed this guy. We didn't go per round pick for nothing. And as far as co- concern does really surprising. I mean, he's a free agent. Okay. I don't expect Kobe's it'd be back with the Dallas Cowboys. So I gave them a little more freedom to be more honest about what what is feelings. But I think him being a free agent now does play into him making these comments. But it's not new Kohl's Cole. Beasley speaking out. It's not new I think is week three when he kind of called out Dak a little subtly and said that he was getting open on their quarterback to get him the ball. So here's the quote, actually, I can give it to you. The Cowboys started one and two Kobe's Lee said we've got guys that can run routes and get open on this team. It's that simple. All we can do is control. What we control and get open. And when the ball comes our way catch it is that was that a shot at that. Prescot? I'm married. I think it was we were back back then we were talking about how they didn't have a number one receiver, and I think coal easily kind of fancies himself a number one receiver with us to or not he has been one of their top targets as he's been there. And that's changed the season which makes him uncomfortable unhappy because they're messing with his his career, obviously in this situation. One thing I will say the front office knows exactly what's going on. Because how dumb that you can speak to the how many times we've seen guys have bonuses and their contract and they're right on the tip right on the verge of getting those bonuses..

"You gotta take away his layups. You've gotta take away as dunked. You can't turn away. Turn over the ball. You gotta get back in transition. But that's easier said than done. Yeah. Because the guy has terrific effort like he continues to compete on off in office. Like when you see him underneath the bucket. Getting these office a rebound. That's all effort. Greenie. We used to getting on transition getting still that's his ability not only play hard and play. Tough. Forget the team on transition and make plays RJ beard is making shots and camera. Just make your shot. This Duke team is functioning like the best one in the country. And it's interesting too. Because I n says he doesn't want to be known as just a dunker. And so I think what we've seen over the Evelyn of the season is that he can take it off the deck. He we've seen him with the great passing skills. The only thing we may be haven't seen pick and roll. And I think he could be a screener he could be a roller. I it really doesn't matter. And if he's put in that situation, I think you'd be good. Another thing we haven't seen, but the Damien Woody would like to he was sitting in that chair when I was going through the highlights about fifteen minutes before we came on the air and d- would just turn me and said that guy would make great pass rusher.

Let's go to the NBA the matchup with the night last night in the association, thunder trailblazers. And here we go. Jalen, we've got Evan Turner working down low on Russell Westbrook is going to make the bucket here. And then he's going to do the Little Rock the baby. So great to do not think that Russell Westbrook did not notice I didn't even see. Runway with. Back to fort land. Okay. Now. Russell westbrook. Breaking ankles Daimler to goes down and little pull up jumper thunder at a seven point. Halftime. Let's go to the third thunder four and watch Westbrook again getting by not one. But two depends on the break. The second most complete basketball team in the NBA is the Oklahoma City. We're Russell Westbrook is making outside jump shots there virtually unguarded and Paul George plan that in the MVP he is. And he's doing it on the defense event is George with the steel and the slam on the other end, the thunder take an eight point lead and the blazers trying to hang in there. And it's deep Lillard look at how does this you. How did you get that to go famed dollars terrific finish jump on both eek and finish with both scored thirty four. But in the end, it was much of this Westbrook with the EPA lettuce ISM. Thunder six point lead. The lead is seven George with another steel he had five steals in the game. Eight fours to go with his thirty six points. And then how about an exclamation point? For Russell Westbrook. I'm not predicting any teams beat the Golden State Warriors. But if there is one that's going to do it. It would be. Okay. See and in the end, it is the Oklahoma City thunder with the big win and Russell Westbrook hits fourteen triple double of the season thunder approving and nine and five when he has the triple double, and as you see second most in the league is Ben Simmons who has half as many Maria. Yes, we never get such is right now for Oklahoma City, but who gets touches for the Cowboys receiver. Cole Beasley who is impeding free agent this off season. He took to Twitter yesterday and share his thoughts on his role with the team and the influence the front office has on that role. Here's what he had to say. In a tweet. Honestly, the front office pushes who they want to get the ball. I haven't been a huge priority in that regard. Maybe that will change. But I'm not sure we're balls come my way and the two minutes real were nothing is completely planned so Domin. Dane, welcome back said you guys might want start a rap group or something like that.

While you were sleeping, we had enormous drama and the land down under Serena Williams seeded sixteen at the Australian Open should not out the number one CG appeared to be cruising last night facing caroliina push kgab cruising into the semis. That gives her a five one lead in the third, but watch what happens here. Serena pay no attention to the return. And instead focus on the left ankle as we watch it again as she goes in the opposite direction. The ankle clearly turns at a moment in match when she is completely in control. She doesn't call out the trainer. Here's why. Really hate Collinge trainer out to be honest. And at that point, I didn't feel like I needed it. Or I didn't feel like it would be a big deal. So I just kept going. Okay. So on she goes, she thought the ankle was good. Maybe this was the factor here. Maybe not one way or another please go starting to get very aggressive. There's a break. Now. It's five two and the third five three at this point. Serena again, serving for the match. But into the net. It goes the frustration is they're starting to feel it later in the third. Serena a five four she has to match point opportunities. Here's the first political. But would say afterwards she had the wind at her back. So she got aggressive and went Serena looking a little gasp, again, the ankle of problem next point another match point for Serena. And again into the top of the net another missed opportunity later. Serena whatever fourth match point opportunity, but again, it's Puska playing aggressively and staying alive she would tied five all win the next game to go up six five and then serving for the match what a remarkable comeback. This would be for caroliina Puska knocking out. Serena four six six four seven five. Johnny Mack talked him. Wasn't shocking to me that Serena Williams struggled in the beginning. Got down herself a set and a break, but it was more shocking than after she roared back and won the second set. Six four in went out to a five one lead in the third and had four match points that she wasn't able to finish it off. Perhaps it thirty seven pressure catching up to a little bit. The expectation wanting to be the mom and win that major event. But it looks like now it's going to be tougher for Serena Williams to be able to pull this off and win a couple more. I still believe that she's going to do it. But she doesn't have a whole lot of chances left. She's to get up to make the most of it. The next chance he gets Mike back to you. I can't thank you. And again, that's a really tough match to lose. This town much was the ankle of factor. I guess we'll never know..
