"While a producer does pre interview with you and you line up a few areas where you might have a funny story or might be an interesting place to go of all. The talk show hosts that i was on with letterman. Was the one least likely to stick to that script. It bored him and he thought it was authentic and not challenging enough. So you had to be on your toes. Yeah he might set up a few things but it's something else occurred to him. He could come from around the corner with something. So you really had to be on your game to beyond with david and as you said i was on you know sitting down next to him as the guest. I dunno eight nine times but more than that as a contributor in these sketches that he came up with elevator races and One of the anniversary shows he's staked me out at one new york hospital and of all people. Vince mcmahon at another and if a baby was born we were in the maternity wards. If a baby was born during the show that baby would be anointed the late night baby with lifelong benefits that would accrue to someone Who had achieved such an honor and so they kept checking in with us back and forth to see if anything was happening. And that was totally unscripted and i remember at one point. I concluded the report. And you always did it because you knew this was david wanted in mock serious fashion because his whole show or at least a good portion of it was a send up of the conventions of television. So i'm doing it like a serious report. And dave we'll be back with all the pre and post natal action and he liked that very much and when it was over mcmahon actually it was a baby born at mcmahon's hospital but no baby born during that hour or ninety minutes In the hospital lives at they come back to me for a report. And there's like a party scene in in the ward so there's balloons there's cake all the nurses and orderlies. Some of the doctors are there. And i've got a cigar in my hand because they're ready to hand out the cigars the baby had been born and i said well dave no baby yet. But as you see. The party continues apace. Meanwhile just down this fall. The desperate cries of the plaintive cries of desperately ill men and women go unheeded and they went back to dave and he's throwing his head back in laughter and i think it was actually those contributor things kind of cemented by relationship with today's Who was very kind to me through the years. I remember like yesterday the hallway. And there i think did they have to. They have dog races and dog sled yet. Dog sled races elevator races The elevator races were very popular and that was early. On in his tenure. I think he came on the february lady to following johnny carson and the dog sled racers were in march or april of eighty two. And at that point he had no idea who i was in fact he introduced me as bob. Kosta they were looking for marv albert or somebody that he thought was more recognizable so the audience to play the sports caster part. And they were all out of town on the sinement. And he called the nbc's or somebody from letterman staff. Did and the woman said you know marvin here. Don isn't here. Dick enberg california. But we got a kid here. Bob costantini said. Send them up. I showed up. He called me. Bob kosta but i did okay. And after that. Bob costas head you edgy. Tanked or not been funnier interesting or clever that night. Maybe that was it right like could have been a one and done yeah. I don't know if it would have ended my career but it might have ended my relationship with let him than before i even began..

"And welcome into the kilcoyne conversation. This particular visit is with bob costas. We always joke somebody who needs no introduction and then we read their whole resume and where they've worked and what awards they've won i think with bob. We just leave it at that. He needs no introduction but the focus here and this is not to get bob on his take on the blues. Power play or the cardinals cleanup hitter. It's real specific in something that you sort of been on my brain about good interviews. You see people walking around with their headphones in their listening to podcasts or downloading long-form interviews and even though the world's changing and media's changing it's still about conversation and it's still about great interviews great subjects and i thought bob was the perfect person to talk about that. His friendship with larry king used to challenge each other in terms of their interview skills. even david letterman a non traditional interviewer but his particular style. Getting bob's take on that. And some fun anecdotes. About how he. I on the late show with letterman trying to get jack. Nicholson to do a halftime interview on the nba during the nba finals and all of us in tv or radio. You feel like you've been asked to do a tough assignment like oh i don't really wanna do it but the bosses are big on this. How about bob's nbc. Bosses saying go. Ask jack nicolson sitting courtside. There had to be a bulls blazers. Nba finals in chicago. How about being asked to go as jack nicholson to come on the set at halftime to yuck it up. Jack nicholson doesn't do tv interviews. Think about that. Never and bob was set. It's a very funny story He was sent on that assignment also his worst interview that he can recall from his time at later. How it was tremendously painful yet. Joe torry called him from the road hotel room with the cardinals to say he thought it was hilarious. So some great anecdotes with bob and the whole story backdrop to this interview is about people conducting great interviews in fact after it was over. Probably my fault for not drawing this out but after we were done recording the interview bob shared a story about david letterman. Being a fan of bob's radio show kost coast to coast which for decades was on sunday nights. You'd hear it on cam. Lex in saint louis but long form the mickey mantles of the world. And you'd spend an hour with these guests. But apparently letterman had been a fan of that listening to it and mentioned his nbc bosses. Hey you know kostas. Does these long-form interviews a sports guy. But i bet he can interview anybody. And bob thinks and believes that that was the genesis of him getting asked to do the tv show later. Which has he points out still lives on youtube. You can find some great interviews. I need to in fact. I didn't do this yet. Bob said there's a youtube video. When letterman was the guest on later but nonetheless it's all about interview style whether you're mike. Wallace larry. king or oprah winfrey. It's very different but the conversation today as it as it turns out is about conversation as strange as.

"Costas is with me. And as you're talking, the aforementioned Hambo is typing stats in feverishly. There were 22,576 shifts in baseball last season. That's one in every three. Had baths. And I'm so happy to hear you saying all this Bob because whenever I suggest anything I'm accused of hating the sport people because I have hosted shows for years that have focused primarily on football any and when, and I loved it. I grew up going to Yankee Stadium with my parents. I love baseball. And whenever I suggest And People who are forecasting doom for the sport are dead wrong. The people who think that there's absolutely nothing wrong with it are dead wrong. The truth, as is the case in most things is somewhere in the middle. And any time I suggest any sort of significant change like this, people will accuse me of hating the sport. Well, no one can accuse you of hating the sport. No one more famously loves it than you. So I'm delighted to hear you say this. Yeah, Back in the day when I think I was among the first to sound the alarm about what steroids were doing to baseball. But I do that because I dislike baseball. No, I did it because I was concerned about the state of baseball for a variety of reasons, and you want to see the game thrive. That's the reason to make these observations. Absolutely All right, Greeny and Bob crossed his next question. Hambo put a good one up here for me here that I hadn't thought of asking you, But we talked the other day about if you were starting a basketball team with any one player who would it be, And you can argue for Luca Don checked whoever it might be. How about baseball if you were starting if if I gave you Team. Congratulations, Bob. You now own a baseball team, and we're doing a draft of every literally every human being currently walking the face of Planet Earth And you have the first pick. Who is it? Well, are we looking at 10 years? Five years at this year Where we looking Answer, However you choose you. You're on the team, so I would think you would be concerned with more than just one year and then that was part of the discussion. We had in basketball. We were considering younger players. Well, my crowd is 29 will be 30 this season, so we should have many good seasons ahead of him. You know, it's an ongoing discussion and baseball the nature of the game in Basketball and football. The premier players and football least If you don't bring their player being a quarterback, they're involved in almost every play. In some sense, the camera is on them. In football, half the time and in basketball, you know that Michael Jordan was going to touch the ball almost every time down the floor. LeBron is going to touch the ball almost every time down the floor. The problem is in baseball, no matter how great the player Currently or ever in the history of the game. He gets 45 turns at back, whether it's Willie Mays, Ken Griffey Jr or Mike Trout. It might only be a couple of balls hit to him in the course of the entire game, and those might be routine. Answers, so that's the nature of the game. And it's also the nature of baseball, and it's quite off structure and whatnot in its long season that the guy was the by overwhelming consensus, the best player in the game. Has played in three playoff games. Three in his whole career has been in the majors for a decade. The Angels have played in three playoff games in that period of time, They haven't won a single one of them. He's never gotten onto the big stage of the world, Syriza or anywhere close to it. It's not his fault. So I guess if I was starting opinion at this point, at least for a few years down the road, I take my trout and try and build around him. I think that's that. That would be the right pick. We were talking about this in the context of Fernando Tattoos junior, the young kid who signed a 14 year contract and all the rest of that it looks like he's going to be special. One more thing. I green and the other one became tomorrow. My second He's that kind of good and that kind of young and you know, he's now worth $340 million. So life is pretty good. All things considered. More quickly. I've got three minutes left. I think the last time we talked was right at the time that people were watching the last dance, and I recall that time so vividly and people have become, I think so obsessed with it. And you were such a huge part of that, in my recollection of it as a young reporter, you guys um Ahmad and Marvin and everybody at NBC at that time. Were larger than life to me When you look back on that now, when people when people young people ask you, you know, I'm just watching all these movies. What was it like being around Michael Jordan when he was the best? What is the answer to that question for you? It was a period of time that will never be duplicated. Now, remember, It was preceded by the Bird Magic Johnson era, which wasn't too shabby on overlap, Dr J and many other great ones. But in the nineties You had a perfect confluence of circumstances. Sports marketing came together the Dream team in Barcelona and 92. The game is becoming global. All the big games. This is no disrespect toward what cable TV does now. PNC's coverage of the MBA is magnificent. You know, Ernie and the guys in the studio shall probably the best studio film in the history of sports television. But all those games were on NBC. Many of them in prime time on weeknights. Michael Jordan and the Bulls were Maura a part of the cultural conversation than LeBron has ever been. So disrespect toward LeBron. You could make a case that LeBron and Michael are equally excellent. What LeBron is not as great Michael Jordan was Wouldn't impact was greater, and he had more signature moments, beginning with North Carolina and the NC double a tournament winning shot counting through the Dream Team M V P in six..

Oldest Texas Electricity Co-Op Goes Bust After $2 Billion Bill

"11 bankruptcy protection today. Citing they said a nearly $2 billion bill from the state's electricity grid operator following the storm. Marketplaces and you'll reports. Those things can happen when you let the market dictate prices on a grid that's not connected to the rest of the country. Raza's Electric is a cooperative that pays the grid operator to get electricity to hundreds of thousands of Texans. The grid operator is called ERCOT there like a toll road for the electricity system. Costas America teaches environmental engineering at Carnegie Mellon, he says in the February deep freeze, brasses Electric ran up bills many times higher than they normally be. The prices are allowed through the Texas Electricity system to rise when demand is really high, and supply is low. That's kind of the theory of all this the theory behind the largely deregulated market, a system that many are now questioning. David Spence teaches energy law of the University of Texas, he says. In fairness, I don't know that anyone ever anticipated an event like this when they were designing that system. Now, this seems like a black swan event in that sense, But a similar event did hit Texas 10 years ago, and lawmakers decided not to winterize Emily Groubert and George Attack says there's an opportunity again to rethink infrastructure more generally. I think we need to be really, really thoughtful about when it is actually logical to spend a little bit more money here to make sure that these systems actually do what we want them to do for the next several decades. Brasses Electric said before the freeze, it was financially robust. Its bankruptcy family could be an ominous sign. As other Texas power providers success the storm's damage in Austin, I made a Euler for marketplace.

"Yes we know that president biden new. Well what he was in for but it has still got to be tough when first thing on your first full day. The labor market pokes you right in the eye. It's thursday so today was weekly. Unemployment claims day. Nine hundred thousand people asked for state unemployment assistance for the first time. That is down just a little bit from a week ago. So good but still monumentally high and then claims for the newly reinstated federal program for gig workers shot up more than forty eight percent. Nearly four hundred twenty four thousand people lost jobs in the gig economy. The jobs a lot of people turn to when they run out of options. Marketplace's eric embarrass gets is going with that. When last year shutdown started joy tout hurry. An uber driver in new york city was in a bind. There wasn't work. I was struggling to pay my rent as a gig worker shout. Hurry didn't qualify for typical unemployment benefits matt until congress passed. Its first relief package. This latest spike in pandemic unemployment claims is likely linked to the lapse in the program before the last aid package was approved new shutdowns and to the after holidays. Slowdown according to dmitri costas an economist at the university of chicago about a third of the labor force the some work in the gig economy and if more people are relying when gig work. A lot of the risk is on the workers themselves. That's because according to aaron hatton a sociologist at the university of buffalo. We've attached a whole bunch of rights and privileges and opportunities to employment retirement plants. Parental leave health. Insurance unemployment are tied to traditional fulltime jobs. And heidi sure holt. A labor economist at the economic policy institute says that was problematic before but with the pandemic. It's really shown us that the there are gaps in a regular unemployment system that you can drive a truck through. We do have the ability to close them. The existence of this program shows us that we can do it. Josh godfrey in houston. Texas knows this well. His door dash earnings dropped from six hundred to one fifty a week without the temporary gig unemployment benefits. He doesn't know what he would have done.

But i am saying we're here to get ahead of all those year end lists of winners losers best of we're tackling it midway through november where we winners this year. Did we win. I'm not confident that we were. There was a moment in the middle of september where you hung out with bryson into shambo after. He warned the. Us open lumberton potato. The me i'm gonna finish that offers a little bit pizza or game. We proceeded to miss a flight about six hours later. Yup and yet we were somehow still able to make it. Torrey pines south and talk to a bunch of the best golfers in the world in the next twenty four hours. Is the drop zone peaked. In twenty twenty. I think we had to peak. Then you the major winner. We go to play the next. Us open course at sunset. We have a great little afternoon at torrey pines. And then we hang out with zander and burger and morikawa and just korda the next day. And so yeah. That's where that's where we won. That's a really strong point. We didn't we didn't get to perform on the course as much as we like to in a typical year. But hey we're we're not really here to bring our golfed the people it's not about us you know who it's about it's about patrick. Reed patch agreed is by far one of the biggest winners of twenty twenty. All right start off years number one winner. Patrick reed defend yourself is one of the biggest losers of twenty nineteen. You'll remember that. He got stuck in some bunker fiasco in december of two thousand nineteen and we thought that it was gonna follow him alone for the entire year is is is swinging. You thought that people are gonna continue yelling at him while he was playing like. They did during his playoff in hawaii. David ferte call him. Captain oblivious which i thought was a great little nickname. Peter costas was telling people. I've seen patrick reed improve his lie in the rough numerous times and yet here we are twenty twenty. And we don't even do anything about this. We joke about it. We don't care about it. Patrick reed one in mexico. He contended i think you can say he contended at the. Us open he missed one cut after the restart. He's a winner this year. Because we don't care about what happened in past. This is where the phrase bigger fish to fry comes in our biggest problems. Man what a great time to be alive. Last december where our biggest worry was patrick. Reed kind of messing around in a waste. Bunker in the bahamas life was pretty good So yeah i mean. I think that that's a pretty fair one because look we just. Don't even talk that much about patrick reed right now. He's sneaky number eleven in the world. He's gonna be back on the us ryder cup team. If he if he keeps up you know his current run and play. He's been damn good.

You're I am they know me by name I'm interviewing them. That that has a different effect, think of it this way. If you. If you were a kid tumble of our age. Okay and let's say you're a Yankee Fan for the sake of argument. You meet Mickey Mantle, and the next day you meet Derek. JETER? Derek jeter is wonderful. Classy. Great. First Level Hall of Famer not going to have the same effect. And why de when you were ten of the great benefits of working in the White House is I got to have lunch with Bill Russell got to meet Sandy. Ernie banks came by and we had a great discussion about why? No one was in Willie mays his class which I thought was you know what I mean? Yeah you're right. You're totally right you also as time went on, you know must have must as as you've been here. You you were you used your platform. You're you said what you thought at times you probably made the network uncomfortable and talk a little bit about that what you know. A couple of things here and I appreciate having the time to be a little bit more expansive. Contrary to what gets out there and you know in a social media world certain ideas get out there on the repeated often enough and even people who think they're being fair-minded accept them as true. So this notion that. Cost? US I really liked costas but then everything became political with him. Ninety nine percent of what I did not just overall in my career. But in the last ten years was about the game or about the event and I never talked about these issues unless it was parenthetically never talked about these issues during the game or during the of that, but I was most often the host of the football coverage of the Olympic coverage. So there were little windows in between when stuff wasn't directly going on I would never do any of this stuff when Michael was about to jump in the pool or or when Derek Jeeter was coming to the plate now. But inevitably, a certain issues intersect with sports on anyone is even. Even vaguely aware of the history of it knows that that's true and when that happens somebody has to address it, and that somebody should be the host not the person who's calling the action should be the host and it should be done judiciously and I think that's what I did over the years and I think also people got confused. If I'm asked to be on CNN. And talk about some of these issues that's not during the game. I'm sitting there at nine o'clock in the morning with Allison Cammarata John, Berman in home. It's not the same thing but I did feel that there were times when these these issues intersected it's become obvious this past year but there's always there always been occasions when it should be addressed, it's impossible to have an Olympics without some political overtones having an Olympics in Sochi and not talk about louder Mir. Putin and not talk about the strong suspicions that the Russians were cheating with drugs how can you have an Olympics in China and not talk about China's rights abuses and the fact that there's no free press in China? How can the Israeli delegation come in London on the fortieth anniversary of the? Munich. Tragedy. The Israeli athletes and coaches were slain and the O refuses to acknowledge it in any formal way. Somebody's gotta say that. So when the Israeli delegation comes in instead of the boilerplate, here's the flagbearer and here's somebody who might be able to win. Win a metal in whatever event I mentioned that. But not during the event? No no I'm a I I understand the context and listen I. Think you did a great service by raising those points because you know sports is not an island. And there are real life issues you raised on. Sunday night football after a a player was involved in an emergency suicide about the availability of guns. Yeah. You Know David that's one that if I could have mulligan on it I, wish I could have it back. What I said and what I intended has been misrepresented there are people out there who think that I if I could I revoked the Second Amendment, take their guns away for the record. Now, if you need to use a gun to protect your home and family, that's you're right and in many situations, it might be the right thing to do my point was about a gun culture in Sports, which definitely exists and prior. To that time sports illustrated ESPN and the USA Today had all done pieces about a gun culture in sports, and if you were to google athletes and guns, you'd find a long list of tragedies criminality and folly associated with athletes and guns, and you'd be hard pressed to come up with one instance were a prominent athlete used a gun to turn a dangerous situation around for the better were you said to yourself goodness he? Had A gun could it happen in theory of course, has happened in society? Yes and that's a good thing. But that was the point I was trying to make and I did not do it as well as I would like to think I usually do I took it for granted that the audience would understand my point and I didn't fully appreciate how volatile the the issue was in retrospect I wish that I had said. Whenever tragedy strikes in sports. We hear the hollow cliche will out really puts it all in perspective but that perspective disappear in about five minutes. If we're really searching for some perspective here, then we ought to take this is an opportunity to talk about domestic violence to talk about the effects of football yeah, WanNa stop right there because you also very strikingly spoke out about the impact of football on the brains of the athletes. who participate and basically walked away from the game. And that was a I mean, that was a I think almost a historic event because you were so associated with Sunday, night football, and yeah, and so so talk about that I was becoming increasingly uncomfortable.

Well, why if you've been around for would never have gotten? I watched pride of the Yankees. Bob which I was telling you about we talked we'll talk for a minute about these bad bad bio plans and Gilbert's particular bugaboo is the bad. What would you call it Gilbert the bad bio-pic. Seem Oh. They're always scenes. Any bio pic where my favorite my all time favorite is one about. Bobby Darin. Beyond the sea and John, Goodman is Bobby Darren's manager and and Bobby Darrin. Goes Well Kevin. Spacey as Barbie. I might careers, nothing and John. Has. To stand there and go are you kidding bobby? You've won seven Emmys five. Academy. Award. Your. Dodge. Triple Platinum, which is never been done before and. A whole listing of every fact of Bobby Darren's career. I never was a soap opera fan but my mom when I was a kid, my mom would watch soap operas and even then and like eleven or twelve I figured out what they had to do. They had to catch people up. In case, they had missed a few episodes. So so here it'd be some some woman sitting across from the male lead lead say, and she said, well, you remember how difficult last year was for me and then he'd say, yes, you're daughter left home and you haven't been able to find her new fell and had him Nesia for six months so You missed that portion of your life, and then your husband left you and you took up with the bartender but that didn't work out very well. So yes, of course I recall how difficult one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, three was for you. But here we are now in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, four, and you started a new job your general. Hospital? It's not the normal kind of dialogue that people engage over lunch I. Love when I two characters sit down and one says to the other. Okay. You're Bob Lane and you're a doctor. Lost Your job as a doctor because you're up your alcohol. Now me. I'm a bank robber and. supported. There's some pretty bad exposition like that in the Babe Ruth Story, which I watched again. Nice to see. Fred. Mertz by the way turning up in the babe. Ruth Story. Fred Merge William Frawley played the first manager be. Baltimore right there on the trade. That's right. Yeah. That's right and has aligned when he's when the. Pumpkin him and they tell him to put his arm in the in the the little luggage carrier on the right on the train and he says, don't you realize you're pitching a game against the world champion Connie Mack's Philadelphia as later to. Ask like seventy words. You're among the dog rescue seen Oh. Yeah. That's one of the movies that are so bad. Okay. It's so bad. Yes entertaining in just because of how atrocious it is will William Bendix the suited whether Babe Ruth really called shot at Wrigley Field in the world series in one, thousand, nine, thirty, two. You know it's kind of depends on your perspective. Some of the last remaining survivors had different ideas about it, and then some grainy old film showed up and it made it look like he was sort of motioning out toward the pitcher and then motioning toward the cubs dugout but not emphatically pointing out into the distance center field. But if you watch William, Bendix step out of the batter's box and he pointed zippy was pointing toward the Moon, not just sort of feel bleachers and then of course, he he homers out in that direction but my favorite scene actually the early scene links to the later one. He hits a line drive during batting practice and who knows why. But there's a little dog on the field. Ball the ball strikes new dawn. Okay and naturally the babe being the open heart thumb that he was runs to the dawn's aid scoops up the dog forgets about the game and sprints to the nearest hospital in full uniform to try and save the dogs light. So he walks in the doctor says, Babe will do the best. We can. They patched the dog up and the dog survived now fast forward fifteen years or whatever it is. Nine.

"Pitch it and close the doors. I doing it a show like this. Big Star. Now now. This. Now, you're talking about the last time you spoke to somebody maybe. I. Don't know four or five months before his death. I'm in a restaurant in Beverly Hills. Restaurant where I had had dinner with Don and his and his wife Barbara who were very good friends with Allen and Linda Michael's. So anyway on this particular occasion, I'm with my wife Jill and another couple and we're to the front of the restaurant and we must have gotten there well after rickles and his party had arrived. So he's at the back of the restaurant, the last kind of booth or alcove before you go down a long hallway toward the restrooms and his back is to the rest of the room. So I get up to go to the men's room, and as I'm walking toward the corridor I, see the unmistakable figure of rickles you don't have to see his face, just the shape body, his head. From behind right. So so I come up behind him and I tap is shoulder I don't remember he's eighty nine years old at this point whenever I tap on the shoulder he turns and in a split second has no idea in there in a split second he goes I say this as a friend people are getting tired of you. Back. What what about going from one iconic to another about what about Rodney? Who you had on your HBO show. Rodney Rodney and I I became acquainted. He had that back to school movie. Yeah, Oh sure. where I'm going to go out on a limb here and somebody's going to take another context and a wind up on the Internet and it'll be fine for Gilbert, but it won't be some great for but what the Hell. Back to school remember he's he's sitting in a hot tub, right? He's like A. Seventy year. Old Guy who's come. Out. In the hotel and these these three coeds go walking by and he says, Hey, honey, what's your major? She says poetry goes poetry well, the JOPPA here and helping out with by longfellow. That's ridiculous. It's quite resorting. Back to school is is coming out and NBC has the January Nineteen eighty-six Super Bowl between the berries, the Patriots so I'm hoping the soup. and. The ideas that dangerfield will periodically appear during the pre-game show and the idea is he can't get any respect. He can't get a ticket to the game. He's in a fleabag hotel outside New Orleans and he's he's soaking his feet in a tub of ice because he's been tracing up and down Bourbon street trying to score tickets for the game and his friend Bob won't help them out. But each time you'll mention something you know. Tough High School Bob on our team. We after we sacked quarterback, we went after a spam. kind of trying to attack. Iraq. Football. I had this guy. You know he was a guy who specialized in playing old decrepit guy. He was on Letterman allot a really skinny guy couldn't couldn't have been Carl Oldie Olsen because I. Sounds. Sounds right that sounds okay. So he played in he played the Bellman. He kept coming in with fresh cold water to pour into this bucket is but that dangerfield was soaking speeded and each time he would give the guy a tip. So he goes. A little something for yourself. Walks out that come next time. Some something for your wife and he walks up third time something for your kids and he starts to leave and all these earns back because I don't have any kids interested religious backgrounds ponder but huge WANNA goes. Get yourself some kids itself had. So now. So now dangerfield and I become sort of friendly through this and on Hbo I, Guess We must have been around two thousand five was whatever year Rodney passed away. And this turned out to be his last television appearance and we had a segment called nine and ninety where a guest unknown to me would come out from behind a curtain and I would have to hopefully recognize him or her, and then he or she would come with nine questions. I would have to answer in ninety seconds and it was usually preceded by some sort of banter between me and the guest. So I have no idea it's going to be dangerous. Rodney comes slowly shuffling out and the crew goes nuts seeing Rodney dangerfield and well, they're hooping and hollering he says to me under his breath. Asked me if I've been to the beach and I'm thinking well, that should be my first question is like an eighty five year old guy who's white as a ghost I'm sure he's finance. Fire. So. So I say. Rodney. It's summertime committed to the beach. He Goes Oh. Yeah. Bob I like to hang around a nude beach and then a crew goes nuts again every time he says something it punctuated by them. Cracking up the hang around a nude beach. Oh. He goes yeah. You're on the day a guy came up to me. He weighed a hundred pounds I go skinny guy. Yeah he goes. Yeah. A hundred pounds and that was in his testicles and now the the crew's going nuts up. That's That's rather interesting. He says, yeah, he came to me Sir I'm depressed I said GonNa depress you nuts. So. Far, as I know, that was the last joke that Rodney. Dangerfield. Ever told on the air and like a lot of great comics a lot of great comics it isn't remotely as funny unless it's told by Rodney. It's it's like you roasting George Tocchet. It isn't just a setting that you can get away with it at a at a friars rose like that. It's material that only works for Gilbert Godfrey, but it works to attend on a ten scale for Gilbert Godfrey. Same thing with Rodney Dangerfield, he had created this persona. He created this character if you or I just sat down next Johnny Carson and rattled off these jokes not only would it not be good? It would be awful. Would bombing never by? Those Perfect those Carson appearances were so great because as Gilbert says, you got two sets, you got the set when he came. And the set in the chair. And I. Always. Sit in a chair was even funnier even better. All Johnny say how you been, right. One, the transition was. I'm all right now my last week Owens and Ben last week and shape all in this thing was. Hey Johnny gotTa, Gordon's Dr. You, know my doctor, Johnny boombats. Avenue. I mean just just wiki three cases of Indian his office I mean he's on right now but.

Control of the body with the mind

"Today? We take on a luck at the medicine mystery of mind over matter, a mind over matter can be the control of the body with the mind. This might include controlling blood pressure or the rate of a heartbeat. Some monks are able to dry out wet towels by controlling their body heat. That is what usually is described as a placebo effect believing that they can do it so strongly that they can try out those wet towels. Placebo is an inert substance or belief which produces real biological effects in humans. It's so widely accepted as fact. A placebo variable included most medical tests as way of proving if say. Say A. Drug works on its own merits, or because people think it works. There are tons of experiments showing the proof of the Placebo, one of the most amusing to watch the test done by a group of Princeton students who decided to throw a Non Alcoholic Keg party for their unsuspecting classmates. The experiment who secretly filled a keg with Oh duels contained, which contains about point, four alcohol while regular beer has five percent alcohol, and then watched as their peers acted silly slur words slept on the ground, generally acted drunk, although it stereo impossible to get in toxic donald tools. These college students had such a strong belief. They were drinking standard beer that it affected their behavior. Then, there is a level of creative mental imagery that affects the physical body for an example. We look at a prisoner of war during the Vietnam Conflict Air. Force general colonel. Hall was locked a dark North Vietnamese prison for seven years most would have lost their mind. In such circumstances hall went into his happy place by mentally playing golf. Every day of his imprisonment is visualizations were extremely in-depth, included everything from hitting the ball off the tee, raking the sand traps, feeling the wind, and of course tapping the ball into the hole. Regardless of being weak and hundred pounds lighter than before his capture, one of the first things hall wanted to do after his release was play a legitimate round of golf, he was invited to the greater. New Orleans open for he astoundingly shot a seventy six, so despite his physical deterioration, not stepping on coercion over seven years his body had developed muscle memory day. Day simply on his imaginings mind over matter it's usually dismissed like deja Vu and the paranormal, but many years ago, I witnessed a lesser known form of mind over matter. I've been involved in the martial arts for over fifty years. One point in my training schools, black belts were invited to witness an example of Chee Courses Costas about eighty dollars each there were. Were about twelve of us, essentially, Chee is a life force. It exists in the human body in the martial arts. There are many stories of men who could control their cheat to the extent that they could ward off strikes or even extend she to knock over an opponent. Needless to say I was very skeptical. I was in my mid twenties at the time. Time, we were gathered in the schools large back room and told a former circle. I watched as an Asian man who looked to be in his fifties. Walk into the room. He was smoking drinking coffee from a Styrofoam Cup, he dumped coffee into a corner planter. He also ground out his cigarette. He walked to the centre of the circle placed his cup on. On, the floor upside down through our instructor, he expressed that he wanted one of the students to pick up the cup. A young black bolt directly across from me, was chosen and step forward data over and over the cup, but total a Mason said he couldn't pick up the cup all the while watching I determined that. If I was chosen, I'd fall on. On the Cup indeed was picked I stepped to the center of the circle, and at a signal from sense I extended by hand, proceeded to fall, figuring to catch myself and even push up position. The end result was that I. could not touch the cup. Indeed, our guests could not only control his chee. He was a master of mind over matter referring of. Of course to his ability to control bodily function

Peter Kostis opens up on 'disrespectful' CBS dismissal

"Here's our conversation with Peter Costas. So it used to be. We would call up. When we needed a big boost podcast downloads. How does it feel to now be the The Guy we go to when we when we're looking for a boost? Speaks volumes. On how far we followed I've been I've enjoyed them all you guys have been great, and hopefully we can keep the popularity going wall. What was what was your reaction? Like on your end to your I know laying up podcast experience. It was really well received I got my twitter followers, ninety thousand of them, or whatever I have not as many as others, but it's still a significant number. And they were. They were extremely positive about the whole thing. They were glad that I spoke truth to power. And they wish that more people would do it. Having said that most other people have a paying job and Boston as if they have to have to be kind to so. It affords me the opportunity to kind of say what I want now exactly and kind of contrasting that I think with. With our interview with Jim Nance which I believe you listen to, but what were you? What were your thoughts on that? I guess it was kind of the difference between the two I, think is you know what you just said in that you know is currently obviously still with the CBS you're not able to speak on a lot different things. Well Yeah. I listened to it. You know back in the day when you guys i. kind of took on CBS and the way they produced. Their golf shows I. think almost everybody at CBS was taken aback by by little bit because. We felt like you guys didn't really. Know what was going on behind the scenes in a TV telecast, and and and the way things work subsequent to that. You guys have done your homework. You guys have become much more knowledgeable about the INS and outs of broadcasting a golf tournament on television. Jim went as far as Jim could go given the ease, the voice of CBS sports right. Now that makes them makes total sense. I'm curious. With when we spoke in February, no, you're everything with your the non-renewal, your contract or firing, or however you want to phrase. It it was. Probably, a little more fresh back in February. Do you view anything differently about I? Don't know anything related to your job or golf on TV or anything differently after a few more months now away from it all. Listen. Gop On television right now is is truly unique. It's being done. In a manner that's never been tried before CBS's the Guinea pig. NBC will have a chance to do it here in in a few weeks. It's extremely difficult. But I think they've done a superb job to the point where people are bitching about coverage as if it were normal coverage with with a full allotment of. CAST and crew and equipment, and and the whole thing, and it isn't. That they've done a great job by feelings about management haven't changed in any way shape or form. They have a long way to go to understand. The game a all the viewers who watch golf and what needs to happen to make them happy. You can say what you want about Gary in me. You could say that we were stale. Whatever spine? That's all cool. It's fair game, but we talked to the viewers. Or we tried to at least. When I did my swing visions I talk to other tour players I didn't use to speak I. Try to use simple language communicate to the ten twelve handicapper at home with Gary. Talking about a shot that was misplayed or whatever he goes on you buddies at home. You guys know exactly what this guy's feeling like us. You do this on a regular basis, so we try to talk to the viewer to enhance the viewer experience. Now what I'm seeing on television is a lot of pros. Talk back and forth the pros in pro, speak. And I'm not sure that that's that's all that appealing to me, whereas kind of going with that, and not to poach to directly from your appearance on the mckellar podcast, which was excellent by the way, but you sounded much more relieved to be kind of away from I. Believe the phrase use of something along the lines of the propaganda machine. I have made peace with everything. You know whatever those stages of mourning are. I went through them all. It's all cool, especially in this in this covid nineteen environment. I I'm quite frankly happy not to be out there. You know exposing myself to two possible health risks, and so on and so forth, and I don't really need to. After all the years that I've done it. I don't need to play the game any longer, and that's formed for me. It's it's so refreshing for me to be able to to answer questions honestly and not politically correctly like I said before speak

Washington NFL team says it will retire Redskins name, logo

"90 years. Washington D. C is pro football team is retiring the controversial Redskins mascot comas, Bill Swartz remind us of several schools in our state that changed racially offensive sports nicknames. Fight song and logo filled with stereotypes and insensitive words. Washington football team owner Dan Snyder announced the Redskins mascot is being dropped. He and coach Ron Rivera will find an appropriate nickname and logo going forward. Seattle's Nate Burlison played for the Seahawks and is a host on the NFL network. Just about time about time. There's been a lot of pressure on this organization, not just from the players, the fans but also now we know the sponsors, so This is a sport situation. It's a business situation, but more importantly, it's a humanity situation. So I'm glad that they decided to make the change Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Costas, not a fan of name changes, just a suit political correctness, But the Redskins had to go get yourself a dictionary. By definition. Redskins is an insult sports teams with Native American references date back to the 19 twenties in our state, the state normal school in Jeannie called its teams the savages until 1973 when now Eastern Washington University switched to the Eagles.

It was quite rare to see a native American playing on a team with all of the white boys. It was very rare, and they obviously did not react well. Toe losing, and so they started calling them the Indians. Henry's teammates took on the name and said, Yeah, where the Indians Moses widow, Christina, wrote a letter to the rent in schools, explaining the source of pride Indians still has for her family and the tribe.

"I like rob Manfred very much personally. I respect his intelligence and his intentions. But there have been some things over the last year I don't know that people's reaction to his punishments regarding the Astros were completely fair I think he was limited by circumstances and so a lot of the grief that he caught I thought was disproportionate, but there is that in the minds of many, and now there's this and no matter how you apportion the blame. The guy at the top always gets more of it. He's the Commissioner of Baseball. Baseball's in a bad way. if they can't salvage something out of this, not just in twenty twenty, but all the things we talked about going forward and twenty one and twenty two, then it's going to hurt his legacy, but the story is yet to be fully told, so. We still got a chance to turn that ship around. Dacoven nineteen and everything that's transpiring. How confident are you? That will even have sports, not fully confident. The NBA and the NHL had the best shot because they only have to complete. Condensed period of time, and in one place complete what they started, but even then that's not assured as you see that there's a little bit of wobbling regarding the NBA This past couple of days we find out that eight or nine phillies, five players and others associated, and we're talking about the whole Ross or not twenty five or twenty six people with. They've got more people than that. gathered at the moment or together eight or nine have tested positive, so we know that even if a given sport does everything right there up against the set of medical circumstances. Circumstances are unpredictable and perhaps uncontrollable so I think that basketball and hockey have the best shot at it, although it's not guaranteed, but football and baseball have to play some semblance of a regular season before they get to the payoff of their postseason, and there's no guarantee they can ever get that far. It's a tightrope walk and knows if you get from one side of the ravine to the other. Bob Costas for this year by there was talk about at least initially with Major League baseball about creating a bubble environment much like the NBA Mls Nhl, but clearly that wasn't going to fly with the players. How would you have felt if they were going to play in that type of environment? Would you feel better? Well, I think fans in general would accept almost anything as a one off under these circumstances when you start with not having fans already you're into a unique situation so altering the playoff format playing the world series at a neutral site, isolating and only a few places, but remember those laces initially were Florida and Arizona. Then they had a Texas those are three states that are surging right now in terms of the corona virus I think that people would have accepted. And the of those circumstances as fans. But going back to what I said a moment ago. Baseball and football have to get in a regular season. Even if it's a shortened regular season. That's a whole lot different asking people to isolate that way. There's a whole lot different than asking. NHL Players or NBA players isolate in a nice enough location, Orlando or Vegas for for a sport that. Plays. Indoors? With no fans Not Dependent upon weather in any way, and for a relatively short period of time. A lot of players are uncomfortable with even that but to do it over a long period of time. I don't think the public would bind it, 'cause. It's just a television product off for the time being, but the players and I think that would be a big problem. Bob Costas legendary broadcaster. Of course you can check out his work at MLB, Network Bob, an absolute pleasure and an honor. Thank you so much for taking the time. Stay healthy. Stay safe and thanks again. Thank you Bob Costas for this year..

"Now see here's an autograph story from Cody Brooks. When I was twelve years old I saw Kobe Brian at the Nike. Employees store here in Portland Oregon when I went up to him to ask him for an autograph, he said no because I was wearing all Air Jordan. Stuff I. Like that I like the autograph stories that don't have a happy ending dislike. My Wilt Chamberlain Story. Paulie. Sent me this status all giddy about this when Pete Carroll coach USC. They won eleven or more games seven times in the ten years since Pete, Carroll left USC USC is one eleven or more games just wants. And since Pete Carroll left USC has had four head coaches. Bob Bob Costas set to join US their imports. He's trying to get him on the phone here. In two seasons. Two great seasons. I was talking about Todd Gurley being the best running back and football in those two seasons, he scored a total of forty touchdowns. No other player in the NFL scored more than thirty two touchdowns over that same time period. Is Only twenty five. I just don't know can have A. Frank Gore like career. Because Frank Gore blew out both of his knees. In College, I believe. And here he is with fifteen thousand career yards. I don't know of Todd. Gurley can be that Kinda running back. And the falcons taken a chance and seeing if they can get some home runs out of being because that's really what I'm going to have to use. Todd Gurley for do I give him fifteen touches a game, but Matt Ryan was gushing about Todd Gurley. Their cut the offensive coordinator gushing about. Frank or is the perfect running back. He's never been paid. He always makes about two or three million dollars. A year last year made one point two million. He's never gotten the big money Franko or he's never gotten a big contract, and so he's been the perfect running back.

I do have to tell you something about part want impart to even knowing the outcome are Jordan. Comes back the breaks. The foot he convinces. He convinces the coach. The let them play in the regular season then. Has that legendary game at the Boston Garden where he scored sixty three. Even knowing that Robert Paris the chief was GONNA come down and that game and regulation. I still found myself getting angry at parish for making. That jot was heartbreaking. It really was unbelievable. Did you guys see what the ringer sold for? Begging Downloads Simmons cut out. We don't need. We don't need you telling us that the eighty-six Celtics would take out every team throughout time. We've all seen the video of Danny aines running around out there. You tell me who he was. GonNa Guard in the modern age now. He's saying he's ready to come on and discuss this with us. I don't think we should when we needed Simmons. Our friend to come on and talk about Tom Brady. He hogged it all for the ringer in his own podcast network. I'M NOT CERTAIN. Do what would you do that relates al-anon? I'm telling you right now. What we're doing is we're not talking to him next segment. Bob Costas joining us next. He is temporarily banned from the show for guests appearing. As soon as Brady got traded it would be good to have him today because he'd weep into the into the phone because Gronk has been traded to but he is not welcome on this show after accusing.

"Joe Borough is that for sure or likely Macleod. What do you think I think it was available right? The way people write about him. I would say for sure but that might be that you know how you always say that people kind of evaluate the guys who are in the draft a little better. Well everybody. What's what they want what they can't have therefore Trevor Lawrence Man. He's unbelievable Joe. Borough just gave you the greatest season. A quarterback has ever given to a team in college football history much better than anything Trevor Lawrence on. We're just not quite sure how what the ceiling is for. Trevor Lawrence Lawrence is only lost one game entire career. He's not lacking for any success. Is He a great quarterback? Oh yeah great by college standards. Yes okay I mean only lost one game in two years. I've gotta prove something I know. He's at the NFL. Play I mean Greg. Mcelroy probably didn't lose too much at Alabama drew. I mean boroughs got pros all over around him too although he did. Elevate that team a lot. I mean to a two years ago was the hot thing after the title game for the dolphins were tanking for two so I think a lot of times. We get these quarterbacks and it's new and you go oh my gosh. He checks all the boxes there. He's six six. He looks like a quarter value. Strong arm feels like he's Andrew Luck though the one exception that goes wire-to-wire Trevor. Lawrence is the the new Andrew gets compared to like a lot. He's been since ninth grade. He's been the wonder I think but maybe not I mean I always think that UNOM always wrong. I thought Matt Barkley was a top ten pick. I think so did met Sam. Darnold two or three but people are still waiting for that greatness. I know new kissing disease out. You Know Yeah Paulie Trevor. Lawrence doesn't have that rhyme like suck for lock you know tank for to a that you need a rhyme on his name. Trevor Lawrence too wordy I would say todd. What rhymes with trevor? But it won't rhyme with Trevor Sever for trevor like several years. Your attempts to win games but if it's not a rhyme thing but it's just losing for Lawrence it's alliteration right yes McCullough. I know you haven't really dove all these projects but I keep seeing this Guy Jordan love from Utah State and we're trying to every mock draft. His numbers are terrible. I Talk About College success. Does it mean anything to these guys? Because he's like always terrible passer rating. Well look at Daniel Jones. Yeah Mitchell trubisky. So having a great college doesn't necessarily mean that you the NFL usually the same way it would for me. Like I want to see how successful you are Daniel. Jones didn't play on a good. He didn't play well on a average team. Mitchell trubisky played okay on average team. I still like what I see. I still like when I go all that guy. That Guy Teddy. Bridgewater doubts about him. I I watch him on Saturday. Seems like he knows what he's doing here but the bad pro day owing going I felt so bad. It's like oh he ruined it bad pro day and I go. I'd still take him. What he did was ruined anyone who takes pro day series after him. Why am I watching this? We'll get phone calls. Broadcasters will join US Fritzy who has been very critical Bruce springsteen on today's show I made him entertain the nation when our live looking if you were watching on. Tv Some of the responses. That was the best look in live. Look ever thank you fritzy. Fritzy everyone that look in was awful. Fritzy Fritzy is only spewing. These terrible music takes to distract from the fact that he didn't take any cast cold a cold. You Realize Bob Costas booked himself today. Not going to be an honest. That's true. Bob. Wanted to clarify something. He said last time he was on a few times. He's got an open window. Open inviolate Bob. But Bob Costas didn't and we had a weekly Radio Augusta. That's that's to write data for this is from another Listener I always feel sorry for fritzy because of how awkward he is in. I try to root for him but his segments like the last one helped me understand why he gets picked on so ma on. Now that's not nice. Somebody also liked the fact that we suggested fritzy suggested flipping bowling pins that were on fire today and we're all for that. We wanted to get bowling. Pins and set them on fire and let. Fritzy juggle those. I don't know how to use a lighter system that is true. That was an amazing piece of video. Not the most of all the different things. You've seen on county not be able to do you you. You can't do any household chores like if you were left alone. You know when you can't leave a child at home for any extended one of those braces like. I'm on and can't get up kind of like a pet. You can't leave the pet there for too long like that. Your wife must say. Hey Todd I'm going to be back in four hours or you're going to be okay. No candidates like Dan open one of those things with the ring where you can just pull it open. But but pretty couldn't use a lighter. You eventually got it but I only was able to hold it for like a half. It took you over a minute to figure out how to use a light hours looking at it like it was some kind of NASA but the fact he used a broom like it was shuffleboard. I Did. I can't wait to describe. How pathetic wasn't a bit that you didn't know how to use a Brune? I wasn't looking for laughs and I was looking for pity. I guess I was genuinely and then we were cutting down the nets when we left the scissor by no. No no no we were cutting down the nets and FRITZY got up there. Because I wanted all of us to cut down the nets symbolic that. We're leaving the old man cave. Todd you couldn't do it. You couldn't actually cut down. The Nets took a very long time. With a righty says instead of taking the righty scissors and putting it in his right hand he kept it in his left handed. Dexter stuck with the left hand but ultimately that was very poor. Everybody did it like a matter of like a second and a half and it seemed like it was several minutes before I can even make a dent in the netting nevermind actually cutting a piece off. It was bad it was it was very bad. Yes it was sad as it wasn't bad it was just sad. It was it was it was. It was very unfortunate. I have such a limited or showing that now we're fritzy's up there and he then he claimed whether they're Right handed scissors. That's my hand. I could do this. I can close the gap by thanks for reasons. But there's no excuse for that poor netted cutting performance but there must be reason why they make left. And you didn't know how to do. The tongs either did not like Tatyana unlock. It didn't realize they will lock on Tom. You some kind of thing you had to turn to actually remove some kind of band around it to to be able to freely open and closed. You know. We're showing that now to pick it up and go at my own length of space that I need to talk to professor. This is definitely its own. Tv show just asking todd to do like hey. Can you like this lighter and then just film it? Yeah a member when he was cutting police birthday cake. And it's like D D. I don't do it yourself can't do yourself. Is there anything I can do on his own? Now we're showing him cutting the cake so so he he leaves it in the box and he's going to try to cut it but he can't get the knife all the way down hawks in the box. A box is a little struggle for me. Man Versus K. And then Seton is trying to help him like dismantling the box. So and then Paulie said no. No no no no no. Don't don't leave it.

The bad ones are so much better than the good ones. It feels like there. You go all right. How did they come up with this? What are the lyrics in? This is good stuff yeah Polka. I love picturing where the person is while singing. Like is he in his kitchen and his wife like I got to cook something here. Just let me finish. Let me finish. It opened up the IPAD.

When I had Mike Tyson a on and we talked about the buster? Douglas fight what do you remember about when you were in Japan Pan but what do you remember about being ask. When did you know you're in trouble with buster? I'm not going to happen until they stopped. It ain't no I never overtones is over when you walked into the ring. You didn't seem like your normal presence when you walked into the ring to beat me on that quick. Count The fast count when you went down there alone count that he kind of ripped me off on that stuff. I liked it. Mike is eating cereal at breakfast table. Well he's talking to me about that because he was given a long pause there and I thought all this isn't go well. You didn't want to talk about this but that was thirty years ago yet. I know why people so intrigued by Michael. Why do you WanNa talk about boxing career? And why they want why they want to talk about baffling. Thank you todd. Going to take a break. The Great Bob Costas will join US coming up a are we gonNA stay with this. Poll question mclovin. You want to throw up real quick. Mlb L. beat you like the idea of expanding playoffs or do you like the idea of televising this seeding tournament. I like expanding playoffs. I mean I think that's I think the mainstream kind of fine with that. I'm okay with this. This doesn't mess with the integrity. That game if you WanNa do it and you want to do a live reality TV show L.. Where the manager in the American League and the one in the national gets to pick WHO THEY WANNA play or whatever it is? I'm fine with that. Let's go ahead. And then they get to tell you why they did it or they're going to avoid a team team and then a team uses that as a rallying cry and all right. Fine Gimme Gimme something and you're okay with expansion to some extent you you know I mean baseball feels like it's already there where you go. Okay do these games. How much they mean? Now we'll take a break. We'll we'll talk to the Great Bob Costas about this coming up one thousand nine after the hour. This is the Dan Patrick Show. Do you own or rent your home. Sure you do and I bet it can be hard work you know what's easy bundling policies with GEICO GEICO makes it easy to bundle your homeowner's or renter's insurance along with your auto policy. It's a good thing too because because you're already have so much to do around your home go to Geico Dot Com. Get a quote and see how much you can save. It's gyco easy visit. GEICO DOT DOT com today. That's GEICO DOT com once again. It's gyco easy visit. GEICO DOT com today. GEICO DOT COM. Dr Bob Costas is coming up some email really DP. Brady's guaranteed one of the easiest schedules in football money zero issue. He wants to win. Go down in history on on the same ship and avoid comparisons too far etc.. New England already has their spot in the playoffs for the next year. Solidified too easy for him to stay New England will Dan. Yeah maybe maybe. I don't know how much they're going to pay. But if you go to the chargers there's a lot of upside aside there. I mean. Imagine if you pull that off. Let me see as a packers fan living in Boston. I laughed because I experienced this drama with far had the same fan. Denial Radi joining. The colts would be the biggest middle finger to Pella check. Also if you want super bowl with the colts he would hold that overmanning his biggest rival during his career. This move to prove. He's the reason for those super bowl. Titles keep up the good work and suck at front row. That's from Peter Here's one from will lead for the Carolina Panthers in the market for a quarterback they are but then or do they already have one with Cam. Newton that's a big mystery though because what's Carolina do at their position in the draft. Where are they in the draft mclovin seventh and okay? You'RE GONNA miss out on borough to UH probably Justin herber new owner. Would you try to make a splash. That's where I thought. Carolina China would maybe make an offer for Joe Borough for the number one pick in the draft damage but are tanking a rebuilding. That's some thought that they lost keithly well Christian. McCaffrey was with us at the Super Bowl and he said that they were rebuilding. Yeah y'all you know. Miami's been piling up draft picks at five Carolina's at seven. Those two spots could be enough up to get one of those guys in Miami can move down to spots and get another first round draft pick maybe a couple seconds what. Yeah but they they have to to decide if they really want to. Then you take two. I think somebody's going to go up in front of Miami. That's that's the gut feeling. I have either the giants or the Lines Yama Club. I find Miami. I'm not I'm not heartbroken if that happens then you wait one more year just to a full that terrible the way. Well unless you know if the guy is there you want. I don't WanNa take a quarterback because that's the the next quarterback up or the next best quarterback you know the positions to tricky. It's different like running back or wide receiver where you can go okay. We didn't get that guy. We got this guy. This is different with a quarterback and either either get the guy who fits me suits me or I don't take a quarterback but you'd have to say this everywhere next year's class has be better. I mean we got to headliners. The boroughs got one year under his belt and to his hurt and Herbert is considered a radic. I think next year can beat that. I don't know we'll have three years. There's assuming comes out after next year then fields. We'll have two years as a starter right very this. This class is kind of odd because of injuries and stuff. Well I. I don't know I got one year with borough. That was the best way probably ever had at that position to has shown signs of being a great player overall a leader in history ratings the record for the best passer rating ever. And you know what that means anymore and Justin Herbert looks at times. Like he's a Troy Troy Aikman and then and other times. You don't know. He's the best quarterback on the field like it's an and you can't have that inconsistency Yep I'm fascinated to see who jumps uh-huh above Trevor Lawrence to be the number one pick quarterback next year because the odds are it's going to happen to Shawn Watson dropped two drops mostly because injury but joe borough probably wins it anyway. It's happened almost every year. Sam Darnold NOCCO. I and these are all for sure thing first pick well mclovin and I have a bet one accepts it. Is Andrew Lock who went. He's at eleven or something yeah. He was wire-to-wire. That's very rare. Do we have a shower. Shame or wheel of punishment mclovin. They get to showers. Shame on Trevor Lawrence. We could do wheel. Punish Brood over onto Shawn Watson. Why why he should have gotten number one that year? I don't know I know. I think it was Joey Bosa. What sorry about that? Yeah Yeah sorry about thank you. You're on record. You Got Trevor Lawrence going number one overall right now. I'm okay trevor. Tall people like tall. No no he's supposed to be the prototype. He's the next Ryan Tannehill. I'm joking I'm just joking there. Let's make way for Bob Costas Hall of fame aimed broadcaster Major League baseball network host announcer and spent forty years at NBC. Bob Joins us. Good Morning Bob how are you. Hey Dan how you doing. I'm doing okay. Ah I was talking about my days is a little league. Did you ever umpire. I am hard a softball game. Once and I was wearing a baseball cap APP and it was some time in the eighties. So perhaps I wasn't as well known as I wound up being at one point and the pitcher did not at first recognize me and he was vociferiously Disputing my calls and you know softball slow pitch softball. It's tough to umpire. Because of the Ark of the pitch coming in and he was calling me everything everything in the book and then as the happening end that he walked off and he was giving me another piece of his mind and he got close and he goes. Oh Yeah. That's that's right you bleep. Right is just a game. Well it's just a game and baseball is making it a little more interesting. And the proposed changes by the Commissioner. Where do you stand on this? Well let me preface this by saying that no matter what I do no matter how nuance the point. I made there are some people who just want want to say what check with Costas is going to explode. He's a purist my objection to the first wildcard way back. When was not that it changed baseball baseball but that it changed it without foresight I set it at the time? Forgive this little history lesson you're GonNa have situations where what used to be. The most dramatic matic games have no meaning at all and not played out constantly where at the end of seasons teams. That would have been vying for the most important thing head to head. Didn't care at all because one or the other was already assured of a wild card. They'd rather get their pitching in place and there was virtually no difference between being wildcard and being the team with the best record in the league even if the wildcard came from the same division as the team with the best record in the league. Well if you can get to the the LCS forget about it. We start all over again that disrespected the meaning of the full season and it took some of the drama away and that wasn't just an abstract thought it played out time after time when they went to the second wildcard. I approved of it because it addressed at least some of those concerns. Okay now we have this proposal from the commissioner and we're not going to run down all the complicated whys and wherefores of it. But I think it's very interesting and it has a lot a lot of merit. I like it. I'm okay with it. I don't think it messes with the integrity of the game. I like now. There's two things here. If we add a couple more wild card burst.

Trends in Natural Language Processing with Nasrin Mostafazadeh

"All right. Everyone welcome back to our AI rewind 2019 series in this episode will be covering covering NLP. And I've got the pleasure of being on the line with Nassreen Mostafa Day. She is a senior research scientist. At elemental cognition Nassreen. Woken back to the PODCAST. Sam Glad to back. Thanks for having me definitely glad I to be speaking with you again. We last spoke back in August of twenty eighteen when we spoke about contextual modeling language envision and some of your research This time will be reviewing some of your thoughts on the most important papers and developments more broadly the and the field that you work in natural language processing in twenty nineteen. I'll have folks refer back to that previous episode for a a little bit more about you and your background and what you're working on but to get this conversation started. Why don't we just start with your kind of broad? Take on twenty nine thousand nine in and Lt what was the was a big year for an ob sure so. Actually I think yeah thing into the nineteen was actually exciting. You're out the you know. These large pre-trading Models have been stretched widely to various various different directions and you know slowly but surely is community. They've started the sink about elected problems. They have the weaknesses the blindness spice up up Citing the sort of paradigm shifts that you're seeing in an LP sort of are into twenty twenty now kinda started. I'm I can reflect back on the decade Started back in two thousand fifteen to sixteen or so in various Task could start to get tackled by relatively straightforward approach that you would just including input tax. It could be looked looked at as a sequence of wars characters etc.. The new US like attention to actually Basically looked back back into the included representation video trying to predict something for task. which could be a sequence of Tokens as evacuate does container so so You know Chris Manning which is one of the pioneers of our field. The had this Basically the Belief from him that he believed him BIOS hegemony which he believes that basically no matter what the task is out there not task if you try wireless wirelessly omitted and use attention to attend back to the Basically important including a of the input you basically can Actually the state of the art knows this referring to the tension is all you need paper so attention is it only you need. Paper is more resent so that was then. The transfer miss came to picture. This has been hellish how fast field is moving through two thousand teams still as I said like the consensus in all it was that you can reach you. Choose state of the art if you just throw it. Violence attached that was the recipe and back in that tire member. Like when I was like talks I would conclude that look although that has been true or a host of different benchmarks a happens that for detested require vast amounts of background Dan knowledge reasoning in basically Require salish along tastes Not yet achieve state of the art or near human performance servants using these by Malls so fast forward just one year. In two thousand eighteen we had like L. modes steep contextualized were presentation The basically started sort of this one more step forward of billing these large language models which happened to be contextualized so preaching on a very large corpus and then fine tune of data stream which should sell started meeting lots and lots of different as state of the arts and establishing brand new state of arts and so the test that I had in mind when I was personally criticizing the fact that Oh look by throwing Added attention on a particular benchmark jump. Necessarily she stayed at the ARD causes reasoning tasks which is something that I personally absolutely very passionate about. It happens to be mined line of research and so the particular task was a storage tasks which I talk again. The lastingly testing we talk. Radio is specifically story Koehler says which is tested given a sequence of four sentences on which form a coherent story very very short story. The task is riches between two alternative endings to that story which Yunos designed basically to evaluate systems commonsense reasoning reasoning capabilities What happened in two thousand seventeen? Is that mid two thousand seventeen or so. The attention is unique. Paper came out the transformer paper that you just mentioned a minute or two ago so that paper basically enable aiding effect of other blurry large large pre-trade transformer models that could actually establish the state of the art in various commonsense reasoning tasks one being the. Gt one paper says uh-huh on paper came out around in two thousand eighteen hours which was Utah Training Model. This was a very large language model. Oh that opening. I folks have basically trained on a very large diverse corpus and then fine tune on a small data sets and actually this data said that they highlighted as to the place for me. The most amazing basically progress happened to be story closed as the benchmark. I I really cared about. So they have Notably they have often like around eighty six or so percent accuracy which was exceedingly getting better than the previous Number is that people had reported on the test set and so that really sort of changed my personal mind out adverb. You're going to this. I started believing in the fact that all look although these models may seem to be sort of doing pattern recognition at the scale pitch may not Doing reasoning in connecting the dots in all these sorts of things that we care about in a label as his reasoning. Efi You know do them in the right way or give these models off chance of being trained for on the right Dina says finding them right these center eric capable of doing knowledge transfer. I think that sort of set the ground up for us to move into has nineteen Very had more more of these very large preaching models that then you could basically find on various demonstrating test and establish state of yard. No matter the but they're not they're from our very at coronel t tasks like Shining tests such as historic Costas itself Congress this is reasoning etc.. So I think this has been the main exciting thing about Nineteen where we could see. This wasn't just a glimpse of Wasn't just a one time thing that these models could perform val it continued into two thousand eighteen. And I think I'm actually excited about A scene Improving these people off more about the downsides of these models but yeah I'm very excited to see her. VR going with this paradigm shift into any twenty.

Trump abandoned the citizenship census question, yet thousands still have to answer it

"The president announced on Thursday that he is dropping further attempts to include the citizenship question on the twenty twenty census instead he signed executive order that's gonna require the commerce department to separately gather data from other departments within the government and then putting that together with the census information they'll get a complete picture of who all the citizens and non citizens are in the country we spoke to Nicole the ray immigration reporter at law three sixty for more on this the press conference that he gave was kind of weird it started off with his rhetorical question are you a citizen Gee I can answer that question are you a citizen of the United States of America Gee I'm sorry I just can't answer that question he essentially conceded that continuing to pursue the ship question in court but it also leaves preventing the center from being printed on time but at the same time he answered the negative order saying that states may actually be able to use their citizenship data that the department of commerce will ask me to draw electric affect based on eligible voters so that in some ways could be a concerning point that the X. value at least has highlighted is something that could be challenged in court at a later time but as of now it appears that comp is totally backing down on including the citizenship question on the census and definitely not a win for him he specifically said that I'm not backing down in my effort to get all of this information on who are citizens and non citizens this method that he's gonna go through with this executive order is basically what the census bureau said they should do instead you know go through all the other departments and you can get this information this way I guess the executive order is just making it clear that these other departments have to provide this information to the commerce department they can't provide this data to the commerce department but they also won't be actually allowed to use any kind of thank you that you may not get a more accurate this is just basically calling the resources that already exist within the government and it's creating a whole lot of new resources let's talk about bill Barr the Attorney General because the president brought him out to explain the back down it is the way I saw it obviously the Supreme Court said you can't put this question on the census you need to go back to the drawing board and give us different reasons for why you want to do this you can explain yourself well enough the first time so bill Barr comes out to basically explain that away saying the Supreme Court shot is down we can do it this way and he congratulated the president twice to say congratulations Mister president you're gonna get these numbers anyways I and it was just a weird picture that was going on actually catch this decision as a practical one he said that if the White House went back to the drawing board and fully explains the rationale behind the citizenship question in your credible court where this case now is they would definitely win but with such an abbreviated timeline for printing the census it ultimately he said just came down to a decision practicality rather than it being a matter of not being able to win the legal argument it did seem that way because the Supreme Court did say that they do have the right to ask the question is just you're not doing it the right way just yet go back to the drawing board and that that that was it the time line was just not working in their favor they needed to start printing the census pamphlets since July first I believe it was so go back to the drawing board it was just delay everything and you know that would just cause even more problems this is all going on against this backdrop we've been told that there's going to be a number of raids on undocumented migrant families by ice over the weekend I think they're starting Sunday and they're gonna be talking at least two thousand immigrants have been ordered to be deported and this gonna happen in at least ten major cities it's all in bucket it's a great immigration policy is better thank you they're in a great first in responding to your question on the campus that would improve their political power and now trust them service into hiding with each additional rates on but you know what the ACLU is now challenging you grades preemptively in New York federal court they just found a few today thank that the government have to get at least twenty families may be affected by that an opportunity to present their case in court and have a chance to make their teeth forty four Michael Moran immigration reporter a lot three sixty thank you very much for joining us thank one of the big stories of the week happened over the weekend and into Monday where federal prosecutors released an indictment against billionaire financier Jeffrey apps the in charge him with sex trafficking and creating a vast network of under age victims for him to sexually exploit the indictment alleges that he would pay girls for massages that would then become sex acts and then pay the girls more money to recruit other girls the store has a lot of details and even some connections to the current labor secretary Alexander Acosta for more on this we spoke to Kate breakaway she's a senior reporter the daily beast she was in court for actually is arraignment and tells us more details new about this is that he's being prosecuted in New York but the allegations are hauntingly similar to those that he faced in Florida about a decade ago and so the idea is that Jeffrey obscene uses employees as associates to recruit under age girls to come to his mansion and give him the sauces but once they arrive to his mansion in Palm Beach these are suppose it massage sessions actually turned into sexual abuse and molestation he paid the girls hundreds of dollars each visit and then he paid his victims to recruit even more underage girls so it is in a sort of the sex trafficking pyramid scheme that he was accused of running in Florida and now with thirty the New York are accusing him of doing the same thing but it is a pre side mansion in Manhattan but the motives and the and the methods are all very much the same in both cases the thing that's crazy about this story is obviously okay so he's connected to a lot of really famous important people Bill Clinton president Donald Trump even famous lawyers Alan Dershowitz is kind of wrapped up in all this stuff with him as well but tell us what happened because when this was going down in Florida he got some sort of sweet heart plea deal that let him just plead guilty to two counts of prostitution and everything basically went away he got a year in jail but even that he was getting out six days a week I think on work release this is back in two thousand seven he's a powerful financiers you said he has a little black book filled with famous people including you know these so seats of the Clinton assistance of the Clintons he had Malani and Donald Trump and his little black book I mean he knew everybody and so it's no surprise that he had a high powered legal team that stepped in to make sure that these charges didn't result in serious charges for hammer serious prison time essentially he had enough money to make this all go away so back in two thousand seven the US attorney's office in Miami which was then led by Alexander Costas who is now trump's labor secretary and his office had actually prepared a fifty three page indictment against that steam esteemed high powered lawyers which included their show it included Ken Starr intervenes behind the backs of the victims in this case so we have a situation where it is very powerful man with his all star legal team is collaborating with the US attorney's office with prosecutors to downgrade these charges on the other side you have victims that come you know they're vulnerable they come from under privileged family situations and esteemed attorneys made it out so they weren't credible at all I mean they created das Sears on the victim they provided the victim's social media pages that perhaps indicated drug user just had unseemly photos or things like that and so you know they not only attacks the victims in the case and there were allegations that I've seen sent people to follow the victims and to follow the victims families that Alexander costs that his bed in the past in a letter that he's written that prosecutors were under attack that they were looking for different peccadillos of prosecutors that could be exposed so it seems from the outside that prosecutors just wanted to get this deal done the US attorney's office now says well many of the victims in the case received a settlement from I've seen they didn't have to pay for their attorneys and you know I guess the US attorney's office thought it was okay that Mister Eckstine pleaded guilty to two state charges and ended up serving a year in jail and as you said that jail time was pretty laughable I mean he's in the private wing of the county jail and most of that time was spent on work release so it really is a miscarriage of justice that deal also shielded any co conspirators who may have helped arrange the girls coming to his places a lot of people are kind of sweat it right now because of these new charges who knows if they could be connected to all this all

"costas" Discussed on Deadcast

"Did you ever watch any of those halftime speeches or whatever those two minutes where he just like goes off like I never watched any of those. I think they could put that on the air, and nobody would have given us it just because like who pays attention to that died ever. I. Watch them sometimes, but they would just be like they wouldn't be to the degree of Keith Olbermann doing it. Just being like, sir. You understand, sir? It was just like, you know, he's got soothing presence. Like Bob Costas was really good at being like wallpaper. And I don't mean that as an insult like his job was to be an ambient pleasing human being on television. So he would sail the ship, but I would never listen to it because take a ship. You know, the other thing he said, and this is this doesn't have to do with the NFL, but he says DSP in. I was right about steroids in baseball. And I was the only network broadcaster. We've mentioned it. And I mentioned it all the damn time against steroids to. So you don't. That doesn't that shock? See really? And it's like, oh, really? You're the only broadcaster who bitched about steroids more than all the time. Apparently. I mean, I can't speak to that. Either way. I don't know for sure. But like, I don't I don't know. Do you think he did it all the time? I don't remember. Bob Costas is like a hardcore anti-steroid crusader. I assume he bitched about as much as someone like Lupu did on television. Nobody listened. That's well, well, somebody must listen because the the steroid users can get into the hall of fame and the sport actively took measures to get the drugs out. Even though I'm sure there is still players that do performance enhancing drugs. So someone was listening to this caterwauling. But he sure as fuck wasn't the only one and he wasn't even right. Yeah. That I don't know. I just yeah. Any idea of Ernie like desire to to portray? Bob Costas victim in the situation when the NFL's done so many more worse things than take Bob Costas off the air. I just I can't really get angry about it in the slightest. But I just think it's I think it's symptomatic of. And this is this is way too big of a leap like Howard Schultz, independent run where everybody wants to paint themselves as an outside or a maverick. Even the most insane mother fucker you could find the the classic punk revel. Bob costas. Yeah. Like. Black sheep in. This regard. Let's take a break. We'll come right back with one of the talk about. For back back with another media meltdown. I wanna talk about and I will I'll explain why. Then you can argue with me about it. But since I'm better now, I can go back to my lifetime pursuit of bitching about shit Bill Simmons tweets about so we're doing that. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. You sound excited Lauren. I think you care about Bill. They'll Simmons more than I do. But let's let's go for it. Give it to me. I think he's living rent free in your head. He wants we been gesture day about his kids soccer team. He linked to something in soccer. He said this. All sounds great. I'm not going to do the Evan kill the cows voice. Because Evan does it better? But this sounds great. But why are they only allow big corporate mega clubs E C N L and not successully independent clubs, whose with coaches who think outside the box my daughter. Team won the Gold Coast league parentheses and went undefeated as top twenty. So Cal doesn't play kickball and even has an innovative social media presence. We can't into UCF L. Let's get swallowed up by a mega club. That's a good system. So there's I the even has a social innovative social media presence kills me because that's so rebellion. Yeah. I think all of that is like definitely embarrassing. But like I can almost put it into the category of like being a good dad earth. Not good. Maybe a little too like over involved. It's a little bit too close to lake fishing airline when you when they like lock you out of your seat or whatever. But I don't it shows that he cares about his daughter. That's probably the best stretch I can make..

"I welcome back to the show more right now with bob costas so uh you know we want to talk about just three current things that are sort of going on in the world is worth and get your take on a because weird again fascinated has been so interesting and we could talk to you forever but through just talking about three different things now we're from st louis and in you live for many years and st louis called the aba the st louis spirit games and st rose the great i put in quotes marvin barnes who was great some nights and other nights he was an but what do you think the nba which i think is the league that is probably in the best shape of all professional sports right now really there's ever a shot of an nba team in st louis own eye hasn't their white why has that not come up you know what i used as david stern about that i haven't broached the subject with adam silver recent years and david showed little interest on league showed little interest in a return there's st louis won the hawks we're playing there in the bob pettit days and 50s and into the '60s st louis was probably among the ten most populous cities in the united states when i got there in 1974 i think the ranked eighteen now it's gone much further down the list and although there is interest in basketball uh in st louis it's not as strong as some other places so the market is about big enough for nba owners owners to covet it and st louis may be viewed whether fairly are not may be viewed better as a city that um will always have it's baseball team and will always have a rabbit and uh profitable uh fan base profitable for the team for the nhl for the blues and that's probably as far as it goes i never gratuity talking it'd be a circles outside scattered basketball fans st louis of a return i just don't think it will ever happen.
