Esports Engine's New CEO On Building Storylines in Esports
"Storylines perspective. How could be sports do a better job at and how can use Sports engine in particular use the company's role at the center of Esports to help build those story lines as well? Yeah. It's a good question. It's worth highlighting a little bit when I was being robbed. Rooted from the UFC to go to Activision. I remember the chief strategy officer who had a relationship with previously and we were speaking and he said, you know, there are so many similarities with what the US seem to overcome to where to where e Sports is and and those similarities are as I mentioned in one case in the UFC everyone thought these were just bar room Brawlers. They weren't skilled Fighters found in these Sports everyone believes. These are Gamers who are sitting in someone's basement with mushrooms growing under their feet and they're not really dedicated committed people. And so and neither one of those things are true. But how do you convince people that they're not true and and it is through storytelling. The other thing that was similar is as I mentioned the outset there's this really impassioned community and fan base that become the profitability proselytizers for you and the initiative and you've gotta stay true to that fan base to grow and sort of create that Network effect. And that's a very similar thing because if you're a gamer and you want to suck Better or be entertained a great way to get that entertainment or education is by watching Esports. So you've got those people but how do you expand it to the question that you asked and I do believe is driven through personal stories and those stories are generated through creative people. They everybody's got a compelling story. This is what we always believe that in a in the old UFC. You would hear Dana White's say these are the fighters. We have to promote them where the promoters we need to make people care about them everybody. Even if you think they're boring or they don't speak English, whatever it is. It's our job to find a way to make them interesting. I think that sort of myopia in terms of what our objective is and I think Publishers think about this I think platforms think about this long and it's just how do you execute on the stories? Cuz everyone will tell you oh, it's storytelling. Oh we have to, you know, make the players more relatable and make people care about them, but the magic and doing that is get off. Really creative people who know the right questions to ask who know what's happening within culture to try to drive connectivity. So, you know, my son is a sneaker head, you know sneakerheads are a thing down one's interested in this and you might find the most boring athlete who all of a sudden has a sneaker collection that you can find a way to expand that and I think what makes us unique at home. It's engine is one we have real passion from top to bottom within the company of people who live and breathe gaming they live and breathe not only the game and often the strategy in the competition related to the play. But also they understand what the community is interested in what they like. So with that applying that to them bringing in really creative people who have that same passion and giving them the freedom to to dream and create and ultimately then the next step is to execute on the vision is really what Esports. Yep. as we've got the creative minds we've got the passion talent that understands the community and we've got the resources in terms of how to get the full story and the message over the line and in our space we are really you know an extra set of fingers or hands you know to help the Publishers and the platforms who wants to create content we help them achieve their goals that's our job we don't win unless they win and when they come to us with an idea and if they want to drive more interest in their game in terms of Engagement you know activating their current fan base when they want to expand their fan base and use any of the content we create to grow their fan base we have the kind of resources and creative people that can sit down and work with them and help them to see the world in a way where they can invest in these stories it's always dead A bit of

"I've read this page one hundred times since I picked it up. It says that oftentimes when a new era in history begins a myth for that era springs up at the same time. The Myth is sort of a preview of what's to come in contains sage advice for coping with. The psychological elements of the time? And everybody's talking like, okay. We're at this defining moment in our history that this is the cusp of change the tail of the Dragon how're you want to describe it? And so I asked my guys last night I said okay. Well if that's the case. WHAT'S OUR NEW MYTH Knowing. That none of us can answer that question and. If I go back. Go back and read the whole. You know the Holy Grail is he goes through it here you know and Parsa Fall? Gives, him the cup. You know what ails you I'm thirsty. Here's the cup and the Cup turns into the Holy Grail and that was an act of compassion. So to me that. Holy. Grail is compassion. You know, and we've been running with the patriarchy. So you know for thousands of years but the patriarch he's been running right next to our grail myth. And it's gotten us to where we are both good and bad. And so to me, it's like, where do you if we are at this crossover point? was to come in what is our new myth? Well. A fellow. Christopher Alexander did thank pattern language. Any any taught he's talking about architecture and the. Quote I, think comes largely from Churchill, but I'm sure it has deeper roots than that. But basically, we build our structures and then our structures build us. And if you think about language. And the way in which we form the our original languages are our languages. Were really created to give us a sense of control over the world that we were finding ourselves in. The original stories that were told around campfires, all were oral they were dynamic they. They didn't have written words until maybe the eighth century seven-century of before the common era. and. So what you had was a story that was alive a story that would be modified in the telling of the story. And along comes the alphabet and the alphabet had a way of caging the story so that the storyteller became displaced overtime and was replaced by the story. The story then becomes something you carry with you. You could move it forward in time and it was unchanging. That's patriarchy the whole notion of seizing control and wresting control from the deep feminine. That is really inside all of us is the thing that mothers our creativity, this this whole notion that we can. Create out of nothing something and that's an illusion because basically it is connected to the archetypes that are part of the engine of existence. The world wants to be created doesn't WANNA be owned doesn't WanNa be a case stay doesn't WANNA be doesn't want that and As we move through history and time I think what we have really found is that this notion of controlling the world is really a failed enterprise and that the more if you've ever done a sport where you need court sense or what you need to do is flow with it like swimming or surfing or skiing or one of these mountain climbing. These are dynamic exercises that really call for us to be responsive..

"What does this mean and how is it? and. It's not like you've come up with a way that it is, but you're watching it as a dynamic. It's like never ending music. And I just resonated with that and. Feel that the whole idea of flow comes out of that. I. Really Think. I'll go back a few years before that another friend of Mine Conrad Johnson from WHO lives up north. Brilliant photographer In my producing career I always thought to hire the best people. And then I would shadow them, I would try to watch how they work and try to figure out what they do. and. I hired him any number of times to do to do the work that I didn't feel confident enough to undertake myself. And he brought me an Robert Blyth's Iron John. And this is what nineteen eighty something somewhere along in there. And then. He gave me Sam Qian's fire in the belly. And I realized. Sam Keen I got meet him. So I looked him up. He was in Sonoma's nights and I told him be entered his phone. I don't WanNa come up there and I'm WanNa meet you. And so I got him my car and drove up there and spent an afternoon with him. Next thing I know I'm getting trading emails with him and he was doing a talk down in Santa Barbara at this place that was an extension of PACIFICA. That got me on their mailing list.

Ancient cultures all had nature mythologies I mean however, you wanted a position them and whether you're talking about the Greeks the Romans of the Egyptians of the Mesopotamia Anzor the Chinese they were all about coexisting with the natural world. And some of those have to do with change some have to do with order some have to do with priority. I mean there's a lot of different ways that the myths except exce. come to us. The one that really struck me was changed was the whole notion of this becoming that like a caterpillar becoming a butterfly, a young man becoming an old man you know the stages that we go through that are completely transient ephemeral. They don't last forever you can't. You can't make them permanent even when you try. and. So these. The spirit of changes. In Greek Mythology Hermes and Hermes has to do with both masculine and the feminine coordinating themselves toward some sort of archetype land whatever it happens to be, and so he's the Messenger I mean, he is Apollo's brother. Apollo is a real control sort of guy I mean, you know he he is the order as the The thing that runs cities but also he's the father of faith on now faith on is the Sahn that wants to rebel against the order and so the to working companionship with one another and they were brought to life by Abed who wrote in the first century of the Romans.

I'm pretty surprised that judges gave in that first round, but it was the much fresher champion that was able to sort of chip away at the always game, or hey mazda throughout the fire Ab. Fresher champion but Komo. Zeman was basically been in camps since beginning of this year, despite was like Ben Booked and booked in both supposed to fight earlier this by giving burns, and also muzzle steps in, so yes, he's finally fresher because he he's had the full camp and everything but I think Kamara wasn't one hundred percent in that fight, either considering this long extended, Feick at Ala, similar to twenty Ferguson with all these these these fights falling apart, but Kamara who's been one nonetheless, might not have been the most exciting fight. I saw a couple of tweets complaining about the fight and I really take that. I felt it was a lot of fans that were on this very muzzle hype train. He's on the video game cover on this baptism round the resurrection Super Necessary Punches bef tile, and that they were expecting violence, even mice I myself said fight between WHO's minimize well probably has a higher chance of ending in a violent way, but it did not come out who's been one I had them winning all five rounds the first round I guess. Didn't really matter to me. Who won that? I still come who's been what at least four of the rounds comfortably? The people complain about. The foot stopped the wrestling the headbutts. That stuff will come out. Who's been did what he had to do to win. That's exactly why I thought he would. Take, her might as well because all the time Mazal taking this fight on short notice. Kamara also took this fire. On short notice gets an extra a completely different fighter between Gilbert Burns as well. It's completely rechange leftist camp Had his new trevor wittman is corn for the first time fighting the guy all this bad blood is in the air all the pressures on him, and perform a like we ourselves, said all the pressures on who's Madonna not not a whole lot on Mazal, but at the end of the day. Who's been doing what he had to do? I didn't have a problem with the way fought. Might not have been the most exciting, but if I was going to pick up, predict away whose men would pull this off. This is exactly how I thought he would do it. Yeah, when you get a fight like this and you have a guy as hot as MAS. Bat brings in a lot of the casual fan base. Does your watch? As many events as we watch, and some of the hardcore fans watch everything so most people expected this fight to go exactly that way I thought the first row was going to be the most interesting round, obviously, because of Mazda was going to get it done. He's probably going to have to do it in the first five minutes, and this is the fire. We got like Mara. Who's been defends his title. For the second time. It was another classic who's been like performance and he gets a one-sided win and highly anticipated main event so in the end. We like to talk about the overall letter grade, but it felt like just kind of looking at the time slot when we're all said and done. We're getting ready to hit record here. We're just like man this is this is super late like I feel like the card and the whole night in a weird way. Wet Kinda slow did it not. started off really really quickly. Might just. Like I feel like the first few flew by and all of a sudden I had been watching fights for two and a half three hours and I'm like wow, this fight is cars going quickly I like this pace, and then we the main card and Amanda he boss comes in, and just submits patriots immediately i. wish went exactly as I expected, but then there was decision with Rosen on drugs, and then even Yawn Aldo finish, but it was in the fifth round, so there's still basically fought for twenty five minutes, and then we get twenty five minutes, Vulcanology Holloway and then we get twenty five minutes of in Mazda, also of these we've seen. We saw that graphic on the screen like. All the cards are three title fights, and like we used to fourteen had like Woodley Maya in Jones, a cormet and Cyborg Abinger, and then to seventeen to five those had some bangers like like two to seventeen had three epic fights three like violent, like just three of the craziest finishes you'll see. And then, of course to a five, the CONOR McGregor show, and then to seventeen had the DC Jones trilogy, so I think we're a little maybe. We'll. We'll spoiled on these three. These three title fight cars while we're expecting something like that and I loved all all great fights off spectacular fights, but I think a lot of fans are tuning in to see fight island. In the Mazar strain, all these title-fights might have been. A limited. I could see why they might have been little disappointed. I didn't have a problem with it, but probably was the night Dana White wanted in terms of finishes. Yeah, the main event may have disappointed some people but for. The Sake, this is like the best thing that could have happened for the welterweight division like if you're burns. Edwards these guys are pretty happy right now. Especially Gilbert Burns. One hundred percent I mean we. We set it on count after it was on what the heck or or post eyesore produce. All kind of blend together at this point in the summer, but we. We said if Moslem Dole wins. That's going to be a problem for the US's pockets the welterweight division I mean. We were talking about him fighting the bringing the both belts so that the Conor McGregor. The table and all this. Kamara who's been one and it's? It's a no brainer that Gobert burn gets three matches. Suppose he should've been fighting tonight. before covid nineteen October, nineteen. That's applaud the car, so yeah, for all the way division, and the the the martial art fans of the world that don't like quote unquote. Holding divisions I think that's a good thing, but I. Honestly I love chaos at Moscow had one I. Think I, think it would have been fun time in the world of May. And Mazda all. Let's be clear. We all know this. He was the a side heading into this fight. He's the reason. There was a lot of buzz and a lot of fanfare when you had a guy like game bread in the street that he's on. That's what happens, but a lot of people wanNA know where he goes from here. Because despite losing the fight tonight, he still has a ton of options moving forward. Chaos can still rain in some way Jose. Can you say that again? You cut off quick second. Chaos can rain. For horny Mas at all got about it because he's got so many options moving forward despite the loss tonight. Yeah, I mean Hoy Mazdas. All I'm Kamara. WHO's been himself set like he's GonNa. He's like. He's like he's GonNa. Lose all these like excuses. Bill didn't talk the finance days notice flu costs. The country doesn't have was coach in the gym, covert nineteen this and that so like I. Don't think I of course I think Mazda obviously cooled anytime. You lose. You cool a little bit Conor McGregor and Nadir's, and it's such an insane finish that they run it back, and you have another epic fight like that, but for Mazda all you're obviously going to a little bit but he himself said. Let me, get a couple of wins and they'll run back. I'm sure he want. He would love to five full camp but the Colby College. Is there I? Think that is going to drum up a whole lot of interest I. think people might even be more interested in that fight in the dynamic between those two fires, oarsmen and I think that Kobe Covington already Moslems? Fight does not need a title online. That's just two guys. They hate each other I wanNA break brick on each other's faces. WHO'S MCCANN? Fight Gillard. Leeann, Edwards of course out there, wonder boy thompsons, working his way up Santana, positive I think has covered to so he somewhere out there, so the welterweight division will move, but for now Mazda all. Of course cooled, but he's still I think still the hottest commodity hundred seventy pounds.
UFC 251: Kamaru Usman vs. Jorge Masvidal
"Island becomes a reality. Well, I guess it's already a reality. But there will actually be fights there, and it's actually Gosh! Maybe one of the best certainly form in my opinion, the best card they've had since they've come back the UFC But really good card. A lot of big names. And then, of course, the main event of the evening is a fight that Probably should have been on the card anyway. What We ended up plucking out, I suppose. With Moscow it all being put in against Guzman. So I wantto talk a little UFC 2 51 Maybe Look at some of these potential wagers and get Ah Someone who used to frequent this show. It needs to come on on Maura, and that's on me. Scott Kanevsky joins me now, Scott. Good to catch up, man. How are you? I feel like a first time long time been awhile. It has been a long time. And how are you? How's the family? How's everything going doing well, and I appreciate you having me on thinking about me and things were going well, and things are only gonna get better tomorrow night. Yeah, absolutely. Did you laugh at Dana White when he said when he first brought up Fight Island? Yes. And no. Because you know you crazy enough that he was probably speaking the truth. You figured, you know, maybe he has something going and he's crazy enough and has the money the backing toe pull something off like that, And sure enough, here we are. I mentioned at the beginning How good this card in is and it's not just mustered all versus Guzman by it. Man. Did we luck out? Right? I mean, my you know, I feel bad for the dude who had to pull out and it doesn't get a fight Guzman tomorrow but as a card, it's so much better now that master dolls on it, don't you think? Agreed. Gilbert Burn, We'll get another shot at some point. I mean, hopefully next in line for whoever wins tomorrow night. But this is a fight Everybody wanted. You know, already. Mas Vidal inducement aren't exactly the best of friends. They've been talking for a while. They had that the altercation back in the states. It was Super Bowl on radio row. So this is something everyone's been wanting to see. And now with Byrnes Contracting Cove it we're going to get it on. I think that's just made a already really intriguing AA fight cars that much better. Now I got burned by Justin GHT because I was all in on Tony Ferguson in that fight like it's not gonna happen. It's not gonna happen twice, right? I mean hospital is not gonna win. This thing is he Okay. From a mm a standpoint, I have to say no. And I would agree with you. But if you're going to talk, betting going all in and you've seen what's happened over the last 24 36 hours. Money is just money and tickets are pouring in on Mas Vidal. He's he's gone from about a plus 2 25 plus 35 to a plus 1 85 last I saw earlier today. I believe there would be MGM believe put out there that they're taken 81 ticket being booked for Mas Vidal. And you know, you know what they say. You gotta follow the money. So it just Somebody knows something, or is it just It's obviously not just big bets that are coming in on Mas Vidal, but there's no number of that's coming on him. And that just makes you wonder if someone I'll be just like you know where agree like you. It was all set up for Tony Tow. Go in there and handle him and take him to the ground and didn't but You know, maybe he'll learn from that. Now. What's what's mobs but all going to be able to do to be Guzman. That's the big question. You know, he's better on the feet, obviously, but you know who's going to try and take him down and out wrestling? So How? How does Ma's little battle that and managed to Ah, toe? Hold him off? I don't know. I think I'm right there with you. And I just looked at Fanduel and they have mustered all that plus 200 right now. So even though that's a little bit longer odds, then maybe MGM has that still down as you said Scott from 2 25 or something like that just a couple of days ago, and I guess oh, so let me ask you this if we do the betting thing I I have Guzman minus 2 45 or mosque it all plus 200 Or and then of course, you could get into it. Um, I took in my parlay. I took Guzman just straight up because I got enough other stuff in my parlay that I'm going to get pretty good odds out of it. But if you were laying down, Abed, would you would you do it smarter, Would you Dumas fit all Okay, so I would I would wait until about 15 to 30 minutes before fight and see where those odds are because of who's come down to, like, minus 200. I think you jump on him because they're getting more value for him. And firstly, I think he does come through with the wind, and he's just going to grind it out. But if that money starts about bounce backto mas Vidal, you know, I think, and you're looking to take a shot. You're willing, you know, maybe you had a good night on the earlier fight. Maybe maybe you going on and on and you take that shot. Just hope he comes with that flying me. He landed on aspirin

How Queer Eye Star Karamo Brown Deals With Thirsty DMs
"Welcome to just SIP. I am Justin Sylvester and today we have one of the FINEST BLACK MEN ON TV. Joining us for this podcast. This conversation was it was jeep. I found out a lot about myself. I found out a lot about the queer eye. Cast I mean there were some nuggets in this interview and I'm just so happy to have one of the most enlightenment join me today. On this podcast. Please welcome Kerama Brown. Thank you for coming. I'm so glad to be here. We are at just a SIP with the one Kerama Brown. Everybody thank you. I'm calling this episode sex drugs and Maury Povich book. If you guys have not gotten this book right now get it and do yourself a favor. Do not. Just get the book the Audio Book because you can hear it in his own words. I am audio book person. I listen to them all the time. Never have I heard so much heart so much love so much pain behind one person telling a story. I appreciate that Boo at all. So all we can you texting me saying. Oh my gosh that part this part and that made me so happy you have no idea because I put a lot of people when they write memoirs they say they're going to be open transparent about everything but then they don't and I was open and transparent about every single thing for sure I was like I'm not hiding anything I don't want you were giving me. Yama for two hours on the treadmill because we're so open and transparent. Who was the one person you were scared to read this manuscript because you? Kinda just laid out there. Yeah nobody to be honest with you because before I started read everyone knows that I live my life. One hundred percent on one hundred percent open. Because that's the only way I feel like other people can grow if I'm an example of the growth and so I let everyone know completely before I was writing this book. I'm writing it and I would like to include your you being a part of my life in this and if you're okay with it let me know right now. If you're not then I'm going to have to figure out a way to still sell your story switching. Yeah and every single person was like we already figured you'd be honest about it so I wasn't worried about anyone to be honest about it and good and there was one subject in there that you decided that you needed to pull back on so I didn't talk about my mother being abused in detail because my father used to hit her because she still healing and so as I was writing. I was noticing that it was bringing up a lot of emotion that she hadn't healed from yet so I was like you know what I'm not trying to trigger my mother. I love my mother's roll back and help her with the you know the tool so that she could support herself and then when my suicide attempt I figured I don't need to go into detail about that because if someone else's reading it I don't them to say Oh this is how I can do it. Yeah I wanted to instead. Stop at a certain point. And then say if you're having these feelings or if you know some of these feelings here our resources you can use. Yeah because a lot of times people don't do that. Yeah and I'm like if you pick up this book here's a way you can get the hell yeah. Was there something that happened while you were writing where you thought you were over something and you had worked through something but then writing this book you almost had to reactivate it and re re confronted you talk about a lot of things in the book about your name and being gay all these things? Sometimes we don't take on you know we don't take it on fully. Yes we kind of brush over it. Yes they we're fine but we're not anything in this book where you were writing so yes but not really because I do the work myself. I mean like career wise. That's I think I'm so good on. Queer is because having a background in psychotherapy social work. I can do the digging and digging on myself. The one thing I would say that kind of triggered me a little bit was when I got to the color. Ism Chapter in 'cause I talked about how my skin tone my grandmother used to say to me. Don't talk it up a family anymore. Which you know. She comes from a certain time. Where you to be lighter meant that you could have attained more success and so when I was writing that it brought up these feelings again because through Social Media. I get these comments because I'm engaged to a white man. Yeah that somehow me being engaged to a white man has somehow diminished my experience as a black man in this world and it bothers me like people say. Oh You Dana White Guy so you all of a sudden have lost part of your blackness and I'm like when I walk out the world people don't see me with a White Man. They see a black man and when the police stopped me they don't say oh you're dating a white guy we'll let you we'll let you go. You're good yeah. Don't have Kiki somewhere and a drink. No they say you still black band. And that's what gets on my nerves and so when I was writing that I realized that there are still issues with my color that it's a different former Colorado but there's parts of it that still bother me because it didn't erase yeah raise yes completely you know. It's funny because when I first came out. I think people had a problem being gate but now that I've come out and in the past dated a white guy when I go home with a guy they now look at me because I'm an interracial relationship you're from Houston Texas. That probably still happens to you. Oh my gosh are you kidding me everywhere? I go like the minute we pop up. This was really gets me people. Somehow he put me on like back up back you up. My man is successful but my had no hand in giving me the career the success the money in my bank account and it bothers me when we go out and people assume my career is somehow because of something. He's that yeah I'm like have lost. Meanwhile he's like a doctor somewhere else talked about this. You know what I'm saying. DoN'T COME FROM MR. Calhoun exactly well. Let's remind people where you started? Yes because rule. Philadelphia was everything. Yeah you were the first black openly gay man on television. What was that experience reality? Reality mother ru father who was the first. Let's let's be very real but in reality television and when that title came out I didn't even know that also people's right in there and I was like what are you talking. About Ruben around forever and then I was like oh reality television got it and what was it like It's it's it's sad and it's also exciting because I was on the real world in two thousand and four two thousand five. Why in the hell has there never been an openly? Gay Black Man cast before me. Yeah that's a problem for sure because we have been around. Let me take some I go to Atlanta. I go to Chicago New York. Texas Tennessee and black gay men are around thriving doing the most amazing setting culture setting trends yet. I was the first so it kind of disappointed me because I was like there should have been twenty before me before me but then on the same rate I was like well. I'm glad that I could kick open the door so that now there could be more people and then I'm going to continue. Kick Open that door and also gonNA continue that every other brother. That is Gay I'm going to say come up with me. Let's let's do together. I let me applaud. You let me celebrate you. Let's let's do this. We don't do that very often was many. Don't but many do you do I do. And I think it's important that we encourage those who on their journey to loving themselves and to love others to know that we support them in that they'll get there. Yeah no in. Two Thousand and four people weren't living that loud. We were still kind of in the closet. You Know Oprah said. We was in the closet. Let me tell you I was out in the club. Run IN THE STREET. Oh do it in. Oversized Shala John Jeans and Timberlands and then each outfit sounds happy. I need you ought to put together like a collage when you go on TV and you live your life like that and then the reality stops and you're back in your real reality. Yes what was the? What was I guess? What was the backlash because you know with my family? It's like you can be gay. You can be you. We support you but the minute you put it out there. It's a little bit harder. Yes that and that's exactly it. I had family members who immediately were turned off from speaking to me my father and I we already had a rocky relationship because he couldn't reconcile our relationship with his religion and so because he he believed his God was teaching him that somehow I was not perfectly designed and not made in his eyes. He figured I can't talk to you but then on top of that me putting it on television embarrassed him and so he didn't WanNa talk to me. We got into physical altercations. It was bad and there was other family members. Come from Jamaica in house so it's like the Black Culture Jamaican Culture Cuban culture which unfortunately there are members subscribed to this sort of ideal of what it is to be a man. Yeah and then me being proud and well-spoken on national television somehow didn't define me as a man because of the fact that I had intimate relationships with other men and your only son and I'm the only son and so you know it was. It was hard but then on the flip side which I tried to do was focus on all the people who love me like I will just showered with so much love beginning letters and letters and letters from people saying Oh my Gosh I love you. You're amazing mice messages. Dmz ENDS. It was good. It was good but I'm not GONNA lie it. I took a dark path quickly because I felt like I lost myself because trying to battle the family and the good of here trying to be something more at Age. Twenty three was a lot. Yeah and so it got it got rough real quick she black Jamaican and Cuban. Sx is good. You better you show up with a PPO per somebody. Did it. Better be an ambulance late nights. I just can't even imagine it would add. Top passed already clear the room you were living your best life. Look my favorite line. In this whole book I found. It is when you said molly you in danger girl. Okay when your I'm not having an explainer people I'm GonNa let you explain it to them because it was one of the most profound things that I've read. What was that moment like for you when I found my drug of choice. Yes Oh my gosh. Tell me you history. Yes so I mean my father being rastafarian Jamaican Us We'd he recreationally and so it was always in my house shot. Okay I loved it. I loved trying. We'd because it made me feel social when I got it first time from him so it was a weird experience of like not having to go to a corner to get we'd just being able to say. Let Me Walk. My Dad's room and get weed and but then I realized I didn't like the feeling of it. I didn't like being lethargic. I didn't like it was down. It was a downer. I didn't like it so then I started trying to know you weren't going in your dad's closet to get some weed. He had a basketball side. Oh yeah he well he did okay he did he did. He had won by his bed but he also had like a basketball in the freezer. This yeah like big of weed in the freezer and so I'll just opened up the bag and I'd be like with my friends be like oh how much we need today and I would just take it out the bag and so it was easy for me to access it but I didn't like the Downer feeling of it and then I stopped that because I never had addictive personality towards that but though I had an addictive personality So then I started molly and ecstasy and that was cute for like the first couple of times I was like yes. I like someone rub up on me and I was like yes. We are living. Ooh And then as I would have to take three pills to have that same feeling. I was a you're sweaty. You're growth cute and then I got introduced to cocaine and that's what I said you in danger girl. And how old were you when you got introduced twenty five?

Oh for real world yes and you start out on this dirty your sixty three you in between one hundred ninety three and two hundred and ten pounds and you get introduced to cocaine yes. What's at first feeling like

Everyone to give respect keep Robertson. They prayer. I wish nothing but the best talking to manager Elliot. Bill Aziz here on area who wanna show on ESPN radio's presented by Uber. Breaking news out of the world to the USC USC to thirty four tonight in Melbourne Australia on pay per view, Robert Wood. It covers coming gasping for the middleweight title cancelled that flight has been canceled because Robert Whitaker is going under the knife. In a matter of moments in Australia for a hernia certainly wish him the best. I'm curious Ali is Kelvin going to get paid. How's this gonna work because you just went through a training camp? What's the deal? I'm certain UFC has told you what they're gonna do. Can you? Tell us. Yeah. Always come through for me, you know. And he said he was going to kick out. You know, I understand you know, he went to a camp. And and you put a lot of money into it investment. A lot of money into it. And at the end of the day. This is. You know, I'm not worried about him. I know he will be paid. Thanks for doing this Ali very sorry about the news our best to to Kelvin as well. Speak for everyone. Everyone is bummed out about this. We're looking forward to it. I appreciate you coming on for a few minutes. He will take care. He was. And I have no doubt in my mind. Dana white and you'll see them because they're taking care of my guys sounds good. Thank you Ellie. Let's go back to the phone lines. Now talk to more fans. Breaking news again Robert Whitaker out of tonight's made event. Ernie a- surgery scheduled for Madame moments from now in Melbourne devastating news, not only for the UFC. But for Robert Whitaker who continues to get all these freaking bad breaks time. And again, he had shingles. Prior to the last time that they were in Melbourne with him headlining that card was supposed to be against Luke rock hold now. Just hours before the event he has to pull out and is going under the knife Joseph Detroit. How are you? Good. How about you area? I'm doing okay. Good. I just got a few questions for you that I think they should let the winner of tonight. And Calvin fight for the official title Whitaker should be stripped. It's just my opinion. Well, I wanna see how long he's out for this is definitely a bad break. But I typically like to subscribe to the rule that if you don't defend your title or you're not scheduled to fight within a year. Then you should be stripped in this case he last fought in June. So let's see how far he's out. Let's see how long he's out for. I should say let's see how long of a recovery this is needed. And then let's talk about stripping in. But I think right now, it's a little premature to talk about stripping. Because he pulled out last year knee injury. I think it's better for him. You don't have to take some time off. But my second question is not question opinion. True. They're gonna make McGregor verse Copley for the I think it should be Tony Emporia for the interim. Yeah, that's Donald Surani just talking right now from what I'm hearing the interim belt isn't being discussed. I don't think a belt is needed for that kind of fight. I don't think a belt elevates that kind of fight certainly not an interim title. So at this juncture, I think that's just cowboy talking and look he's going to get the fight. It seems like that's the front runner. I don't think you need to push for an interim thing anyone wants it, quite frankly, I think the interim belt would would almost like soil that that fight. I don't think anyone wants to see an interim belt online. I don't think either guys should be fighting for an interim belt when you have guys like Tony dust emporium ally. Doing what they've done as of late. Let's go back to the phone lines and say Hello to Corey in California, Corey how are you? Hey, I'm good. How you doing? I'm doing. Okay. Some some disappointing news, but we still have a car tonight. But yeah, it's it's a bummer. These things happen from time to time in in mixed martial arts and. I mean, this is a big one especially because it's the Australian who's now out of the card. Yeah. Honestly, like you said before man, I don't know how these injuries happened the day of the fight. How much are you actually doing? Such a serious injury. But I don't know it's fight game. And it happens. But. So my original copies I called about it. Now trying to shake up. I was gonna say do you think that Anderson is? His own legacy a little bit by taking these bigger fights with the much younger guys are like the fights with whatever, obviously, they're bigger fights. And he's a big name. And do you think that you have tarnished by throwing them into a fight with Israel, just because if Anderson, but then it turns around and now Anderson is card having a big name for Israel to fight. So do you think that enersen should lay off he's bigger fights? Or do you think he's finer you think his legacy Jenner hurt in the end after all this look if we're talking about tarnishing legacies? The only thing that's maybe tarnished his legacy. So to speak is the fact that he was caught with PD's twice other than that. I mean, I don't think opponents will tarnish anyone's like seeing fact to meet on the elevates your legacy because you're finding the toughest guys even as you're in your swansong so to speak. I like the fact that he's taken this fight. Everyone thought it was a mistake. It's an opponent that he thinks he could beat he's fourteen years older. He feels like maybe he's not as experiences him. Maybe he hasn't fought the kind of competition that he's. So I don't think this is. I mean, imagine he pulls it off great story George Foreman. It's like Randy tour all over again. So I honestly don't think that he's tarnishing his legacy on this one. Let's go to one quick call before we take another break Hamilton, Ohio. What's up man areas? A pleasure speaking with you. I want to go back to the UC days, or so I started hearing your voice. Boy that was handled by the UFC. I am so proud that you've come to where you had with the hard work. You've done to put yourself in today's position. Thank you know, as far as what's happening transplanted melborn sad. And that's the core. So the nature of the game. My question to you is at forty three year old is now put himself in position we he's probably going to be having to save this card. I understand that. There's not a lot of four weeks on your old man at his weight. They can do anything except maybe defend themselves. Does he really have a chance to see wing? And do you see this only in the heavyweight World War forty yours can compete one or two times? This gentleman is not tarnishing his world. It just a building him being allowed to do this because of his name and his past of fighting really realistically can this man really compete at this level with this young kid. I mean that remains to be seen. I don't think it's a bad matchup firm. In fact, I'd say he's too big of an underdog. I'm curious to see if he can turn back the clock tonight. But yeah, it's a great call to great point. The best news is this flight hasn't been canceled. So we're about to find out in a matter of moments in a matter of hours, whether or not Anderson Silva can hang with Israel to Sonya after the break. We're going to be joined by my colleague, my partner shell son. And he's in Melbourne. I want to get his take on things. He knows coming gasoline almost better than anyone. He was the one who drafted him on the ultimate fighter way. Back when devastating news Robert Whittaker's out of tonight's UFC two thirty four main event. And I just got details about how it all went down. I'll tell you about all that and more right after the break. You're listening to Hawaii's may show right here on ESPN radio and ESPN app this
Raiders' Derek Carr apparently wants to have MMA fight with ESPN host who questioned his character
"So Derek Carr the raiders quarterback who spent a full season enduring life with Jon Gruden. You would think that would toughen them up a little bit. You know, show 'em thing or two. Maybe Derek Carr after spending months of not being able to bite back. His head coach is biting back at anyone and everyone who would criticize me. I noticed this on Twitter last night MDIS wrote something about it a PF. Derek Carr wasn't happy that the hosts of I take max Kellerman, Stephen a Smith. Damn story. Thank you. Derek Carr wasn't happy. With them criticizing him. He was informed via social media that they were criticizing him. And Derek Carr responded to the criticism. The news of the criticism by saying it's because I blocked them both for talking trash about our team. Those two clouds don't know anything about this game would love to actually sit and breakdown film with these two on TV just to show their viewers. How incompetent parentheses lacking qualification? They are about our game. Now, first of all first of all. Why in the hell does Derek Carr feel compelled to explain what incompetent means? Right. This some random word does he think that incompetent may be too much of a fancy word like maybe people aren't gonna follow alongside better. Go ahead. And supply the definition. Thank you. Derek Carr for explaining what incompetent means I'm lacking qualification to understand it. So thank you. That was just weird. So then Derek Carr directed a tweet to at UFC and at Dana white, the president of the UFC, which now has a relationship with the SPN, which employs Kellerman and Steven A and car said he'd like to step into the octagon with these quote, unquote, clowns. Hey, how do I challenge a couple of these clowns on TV to a fight? I think we should start a business together. We're pro athletes can challenge some of these people to an octagon fight until they give us an answer. And of course, the first line of cars Twitter bio follower of Jesus, Christ husband, father and Oakland raider. Yes. Jesus would admit that. What what did Jesus always say? Turn the other cheek and then punch them in the jaw was that. It. Never keep your left low and lead if you're right. Yeah. Derek what's wrong with you, buddy? Look must most of the criticism of the raiders and Derek Carr from this past season was fully deserved. And if he's going to. I'm not a big fan of grown men acting like the little kids. This is the stereotypical stuff. The narrative the locker move, right? If you can't match wits with them beat the crap out

This is podcast number one eighty nine. And I'm calling it things I'm thankful. I did. Thanksgiving here in the US is coming up next week, which you know, I try not to say this every single week. But I feel it every single week. Oh, my word. How did it happen to end up mid-november like what in the world? But anyway, time flies. But you know, that makes me start thinking about thankfulness and things that I needed to be grateful for and I it's honestly one of my favorite holidays. I think because it is all about family. It is all about food certain foods that you don't eat except on that day. And then the reality is that it just doesn't have the same pressure and showing us of Christmas. So it's just kind of a day just to enjoy for what it actually is not that. I don't do that for Christmas. But you know, what I mean anyway, but with the the idea of, you know, thanksgiving you think about thankfulness and a lotta times when I think about things to be thankful for and. Thinking about things that are outside of my control. So, you know, wow, I'm really thankful that I have this crazy job where I get to write books and have a podcast and all that kind of stuff. Yes, I'm thankful for that. I am really thankful for my home for you know, my kids my husband. But a lot of those things, you know, especially kids husband those completely out of my control right inner, so I'm thankful for things and there's a lot of value in. But what I'm going to talk about today is the stuff that I'm thankful for that is totally incompletely in my control guy in the reason that I'm talking about this is. Sometimes life just gets going. And I am like, oh, I'm glad I did such and such. But when I really stopped to try to be very thoughtful about how glad I am that I did something in the past that benefits me. Now, a lot of times did something that I wasn't necessarily thinking about how much it was going to benefit me in the future. But when I think when I'm glad that I did it if I take the moment to stop and say, okay, what did I do that's making my life so much better right now, and I'm going to stop and take a moment and be thankful for that and being thankful for that helps me be aware of what I did. And helps me be more aware of when those opportunities to do something similar in the future. Prevent them prevent. Kind of the opposite of present themselves. Okay. So when those opportunities to do something now that's gonna make me feel thankful and grateful that I did it in the future. When those opportunities present themselves. I'm more aware of I have really taken the moment to stop and think I am so glad that I did this. Okay..
