"Amazed here at the Golden Tower of the Fisher Building that rusty Hills and bill shooting that we're both Back for a second hour here on WJR New stock. 7 60. Our guest is a special friend of mine. Special friend of Rusty Hills. And that is the mayor of the city of Detroit. His honor, and, you know, he's a good friend Mike Duggan. We way sing a different choirs s so to speak politically, but we can also Hum the same tune in terms of wanting to move Michigan forward and mayor. We're delighted that you're here. Rusty and I are thrilled that you'll join us. You're a busy guy, and we just kind of wanted to talk about how you're managing, you know, commercial real estate. How you reopen this city, The covert challenge and And Mike. Welcome to Ah, Station where you're no stranger. Well, I'm glad to be out with you guys and help with your audition in the hopes that you get gainfully employed your lips to God's ears. That's why we had Jim Holly an earlier because we know he's a praying man. And we know that and you could do that to Duggan for us, For crying out loud. There's an opening in Detroit. Ugo, You could still running for mayor if you get your petitions that by Tuesday, Well, hey, you know I was one of those guys. I'm glad you did that right? And look what leadership we've received here in Detroit because he will talk to us a little bit about the challenge of reopening in the midst of this pandemic. We thought we were getting through it now. All of a sudden, Michigan's been hit with a surge. Ah, but I know that you know, we had a lot of good things going on in Detroit. How do we kind of get that feeling back again? There? It is so hard to Predict. I really thought we'd have people back in their offices by the end of April, and that was what we were all shooting for, But we have this, You know, new infection. You guys saw it started up in the thumb. It spread down through southeastern Michigan. My guess is in three or four weeks, it will have moved down from Michigan, Indiana and Illinois and Ohio, which is Unfortunate, but it has slowed down the Rio openings and, um, you know, and then the question ultimately is in the long run. You know what does long term office work look like in every big city in this in this country, and we're talking to a lot of CEOs who are thinking through You know, most people don't believe they could build a team when people are on zoom all the time. But could you could you work for us being the office two or three days a week and remotely two or three days a week. And what does that mean? Toe all the downtown businesses that rely on that office traffic. Those are all things that city's gonna have to grapple with in the coming months. You know, I was talking to a friend of mine. It was a different city, but similar demographic size. What have you and And he was saying that you know, and he normally would. He lived in the burbs and suburbs and he'd get a train our drive in and you know he have coffee here at that station. Coffee it of mom and pop place outside is Office, but he had been in his office for a month. And you know the big The big change have the capital to keep things going. But the mom and pop independent businesses sometime those who offer employment for people of color single moms. New orders low income earners trying to enter the workforce. It's really hard, and so you have a big challenge on your hands. I mean, how do you feel the rents in right, Mike? Well, that's AH, That's the question, and, uh there are a lot of cities in this country of a lot worse than we do You look at the San Francisco's The New York's even Austin. Texas, where traffic jams are terrible, and rents in the downtown office is a really high you've had seen people bailout who are not coming back. On. So the question is going to be well. You see some of those kind of businesses relocate to mid sized cities where housings more affordable office is more affordable. Traffic's not so bad. Or will people just moved to their homes? And you know we're getting interested in from national people in potentially regional headquarters in Detroit, and that's just we're just gonna have to see right now. But there certainly will be office space available what we're seeing in this city right now, although the villages just built out their office building, and Huntington is finishing Their new headquarters is we have lots of housing being built Lots of manufacturing being billed GM in the middle of another $2 billion expansion over in in what they now call factory zero. Ah, but there is a slow down in the in the offices and we're just gonna have to say Hey, Mayor. You know we're here at the Golden Tower, the Fisher building and we're looking out at downtown and I see a lot of, you know improvements in these areas. Then when you get out on the neighborhoods, that things get a lot tougher, you know, driving down grass. Shit. How are we going to get jobs for the Detroiters in the neighborhoods? How can we help bring those back? Yeah, well, we're seeing more development in neighborhoods than we have. And Many, many years. So drive down Livin Oy try and find a parking space between seven and eight mile on a Saturday even during the, uh, the pandemic. If you come down Kercheval on the East side and place that six years ago was almost completely deserted. And what you're seeing are new apartments. New commercial lot of storefronts that have been Activated. The same thing's happening out on Grand River. And so we have invested in these commercial district's these streetscapes in areas where the neighborhoods are coming back the strongest On and that's probably the biggest question I'm getting now in my my neighborhood meetings has. Can you help build streetscape? A commercial district over here on West Warren like you did on living? I can You do it over here on seven mile Like you did.

Mastering Search Intent with Brendan Hufford
"Today. I'm really excited. Talking to one of my favorite people. Brennan suffered brendan is created. This really cool kind of ongoing education center called. Seo for the rest of us. He has a podcast. He's all about helping people you know. Create great content that does rank for search We're gonna talk about search. Thank you for joining me brendan. Yeah thanks so much for having me. I really appreciate and be fun. Also i'm i love chatting with you online. We had a few times before. I'll dive right in today. We're gonna talk about in ten. And it's something i know you think a lot about just high level. How do you. Kind of approach modern Intent when it comes to creating content. Yeah so my background is as an educator. Because at eighteen years old i was alive. The for some reason decided. I was allowed to decide what i want to do with my life and i decided to be a teacher and then did that for ten years so a lot of my teaching and thinking about seo is not just like what is right. But like how do i teach this so search intent very often is talked about in a way that is certainly intentive a user is informational navigational transactional or commercial right. They want one of those four things. And i don't think that's wrong but i started to feel like that's not helpful because it doesn't actually inform what you do right if it's like well this is an informational search. Okay so i just put information. And that's how i rank like probably don't like if it's a navigation search from googling like how to get somewhere sure like maybe a long form blog posts like this isn't the day like if you're one of the olds like me you remember like printing out mapquest and stuff like that was the thing. But we don't need that like an informational. Post is not gonna work there or if you google something and a lot of people are buying stuff. It's a lot of products like they probably don't want long blog post however it just tells you what goes there and not the how or as marketers what the heck to put on the page. So i did some homework. And i was like where did you know i want to know before i like. Poo poo something on twitter. And give my hot take where this come from. And i dug and duggan you know you have to the the link chasing in stuff is just like this person cited this person who said that this person crap. It's back to the first person you end up with thirty tabs. What i found was our model in twenty twenty one for search intent comes from me two thousand seven blog post from rand fish skin not wrong. He's brilliant because what he said in two thousand seven for context in two thousand seven. That was the year that like leave britney alone and chocolate rain popular out through so we can have. Yeah you just happened to the real way back machine and like but he's not wrong. It's brilliant because he's still correct right. That is still part of the intent. But i thought to myself part of seo for the rest of us. How do we make this more accessible. How do we give people something they can. Actually use will all right. We have to figure out if something is commercial or transactional or whatever like. I can't really help you if you're trying to drive somewhere like that's not what i'm doing in my marketing. That might be part of it if you're like a local business or something but for me the really like the informational or the transactional commercial came down. Like what the heck do we put on. The page is introduced to a really cool model for copyrighting by my buddy joel key from business casual copywriting. He also runs case. Study buddy now. That came from eugene schwartz in his book breakthrough advertising the kind of walks. It just walks through like levels of awareness. Now it's meant for ads right depending on what level of product or service awareness there at what they're searching. You can kind of figure out what needs to go on the page. What do they need to move. Not to the next step nazi-like book damn o or whatever but like just to the next piece of the puzzle and that's been really really helpful if you if you want. I can kind of get into a little bit of that one thing. I'm really interested for his is. There's a lot of kind of maybe. It's the controversy but but people talk about the idea of on the one hand you have. Seo's who just tried to mimic what the top ten pieces of content are that rank on page one. And doing exactly that in. That's how you're going rank and then there are other folks who say we'll just do better by you don't know if that's necessarily going to become visible for what you're trying to rank for. So what do you say to those people in how they approach creating content for you know. Can we trust google that they're actually going to surface the right content. So this is like i said something. I remember saying something the other day of like. I'm pretty sure that the quality of the top ten like the reading the top ten results quality of content is not a ranking factor anymore. It's i just. I i was reading stuff. And maybe it's because i was reading about marketing things. Half of them were unintelligible. There was no narrative to take you through you could tell each of the sections was based on like a people also ask or whatever and it was just like literally like imagine you know. You're you think you're sitting down like a ten course meal and somebody they're just throwing random food at you the whole time like here's your salad and now here's desert and then there here's a pizza and then like a piece of chicken and you're like what the there's nothing that makes this flow. There's no s- craft of writing here. It might as well be written by a robot pains me because these are humans that are spending their lives doing this. And they think they're doing a good job because they got the traffic and the conversions and blah blah blah. I think first of all. I empathize at the human writers. Who are writing these things like that must suck for you to write to just spew out this stuff all day and be on on the content marketer writer and that's what i do commodity kind of content so i would love for it to be better to encourage people to do better work. We can elevate the craft of writing that would be
The History Of Kayfabe
"Earned. Modern professional wrestling began back in the early twentieth century. When carnivals would put on catch wrestling exhibitions this was real wrestling. The competitors were actually wrestling with each other and there would be prize money to the winner. The wrestlers would often competing against locals. Who would win a prize. If they could defeat the carnival strongman so they really did have to know how to wrestle and fight. Unfortunately many of the competitive matches were really boring the bouts rough and nothing more than wrestling holds. Which could last for over an hour watching grown men grab each other for. That long really wasn't that entertaining. The whole point of carnival wrestling wasn't terrestrial it was to make money. Eventually the promoters figure out they could sell more tickets if they made the matches more interesting and that is how started the word k. Fame but self comes from kearney. Talk which is a pig. Latin type of language which was spoken by carnival workers k. Fehb just means fake. As the carnivals began predetermining the winners of fights it was a shortstop to adopting the tropes which were used in all good dramas good versus evil heroic comebacks treachery and betrayal. All of those became part of professional wrestling in order to put on a better show and sell tickets. However at no point did they ever say that the performance was predetermined people had to think they were watching illegitimate competition. So a bad guy and a good guy couldn't be seen together before or after a show the head to commit to their characters all the time. This is the primary difference that separates k. fehb from acting actors perform role and. Everyone knows that they're watching performance in k. Fehb the performer is living the role even when they're not performing and they're trying to convince the audience that israel for decades keeping cafe was the single biggest rule in professional wrestling. It was the wrestling equivalent to magicians not. Divulging the secrets. The primary care mechanism was having baby faces which were the good guys in heels which were the bad guys. The bad guys had to be bad guys all the time. If they were asked for autographs by fans at an airport they would often refuse to sign an insult. The fans just to keep k fehb when wrestlers travelled between cities heels and faces would often have to travel in separate cars and stay in different rooms. Just to keep k fehb. They would even have different locker rooms backstage. Occasionally they would screw up. Wrestlers would get in big trouble if they broke k. Fehb in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven. The iron sheik. Who was a heel was traveling with. Hacksaw jim duggan. Who has a face. They were both pulled over and arrested for possession of marijuana and cocaine when the arrests made the news to cause controversy. Because these two guys were supposed to be enemies yet. They were traveling with each other on rare occasions. A wrestler may go off script and try to really injure another performer. Any sort of predetermined match or storyline is called a work in wrestling circles. And something which is real or off script is called a shoot in two thousand and four for example. The wwe was running a reality show where the contestants compete to become professional wrestlers. One of the contestants was daniel putter. Who is a real life. Mma fighter on an episode of monday night raw wrestler. Kurt angle issued a challenge for one of the contestants to come out and fight him. According to the script putter was supposed to come out and quickly lose however he decided to actually fight for real on live. Tv when angle wasn't expecting it. Putter tried to put england submission hold instead of losing however kurt angle is a real life olympic gold medalist in amateur wrestling and would have none of it. Technically fehb died in professional wrestling in nineteen eighty nine. When vince mcmahon the owner of the then. Wwf testified before the new jersey state legislature that wrestling was scripted in the matches predetermined this was done in order to avoid being taxed and regulated. Like a real sport today in professional wrestling cave is pretty much dead the. Wwe hosts our own documentaries where wrestlers talked out of character and will often break cafe within their own shows however as cafe has died in professional wrestling it seemingly has taken off in other parts of our culture one of the best examples would be mohammed ali yes that mohammed ali to be sure. All of his boxing matches were real and he was one of the greatest boxers in history however the persona. he created of the arrogant loud rhyming. Fighter was total k. fehb he recalled in a nineteen sixty nine associated press interview about a chance encounter with professional wrestler gorgeous george in nineteen sixty one in las vegas. He said quote. I got it from seeing gorgeous. George russell in las vegas. I saw his aides spraying deodorant and opponents corner to contain the smell. I also saw thirteen thousand full seats. I talked with gorgeous for about five minutes after the match and started being a big mouth and a brighter. He told me people would come to see me. Get beat others would come to see me. When i'd get coming and going and quote alley began creating poems about how pretty was and how ugly. His opponents were his interviews with sportscasters. Like howard cosell. Legendary gorgeous georgia's prediction was absolutely true. Love him or hate him. You couldn't ignore. mohammed. Ali
"duggan" Discussed on ESPN On Ice with Wyshynski and Kaplan Show
"You look back to last offseason. There were fourteen contracts or three or more years for Ford's and what you don't see this year are the Ryan carpenters or Richard Panik's Brent Connolly types getting three or more years, which is what we saw last summer, and that is such a huge change. The money on average is lower the term is lower it's clear that. The biggest group impacted by the new economics of the NHL. Absolutely and you know you looted to the long-term deals knowing a long-term deals, two guys long-term three guys, long-term deals, and they were three at the biggest name. So it's interesting. The other thing too. That was a bit of a trend was structure the deal and you see and so many of these contracts. Let's look at who, for example, you got a seven year deal I two years the only making four million year three. What's supposed to happen in your three Oh? Yeah. We're going to recover from this pandemic all the pumps up to eight million the next couple of years eight, point, five million, and then it ends a little lower at six point five and six million even in the shorter term deals that we saw Kevin Lebron's with a guy that resigned with the sharks by the way this was doug. Wilson clearly saying I got you man you did us a solemn right. Now. He's only making three point two, million, this year three, point nine, five been bumps up year three, five, point seven, five, five, point, eight, seven, five. So with the esker system, you understand where the players are coming out from this, they don't want to take less out of their paychecks and GM chew with the flat cap and understanding the constraints they're trying to be budget-conscious the next two years and everyone is crossing their fingers that things are normal. We get. SEATTLE WE GET THAT NEW TV deal in money starts PUMPKIN and in three years from now, we can recover from this but that just lets us know the next two seasons. bleak. Real Quick Joe Thornton. What do you think? Do you think he ends up Toronto? Do you think he goes back to San? Jose he retires. I think I don't think he's retiring. He's in Switzerland right now. Play I. Think he's enjoying it I think there's a pride thing with him like I will end on my own terms of team still want me all still go. I think there's an appeal to co to the Maple Leaf says we've seen with many free agents but man like Patrick Marlowe maybe being there as he breaks. Gordie House. Streak Doug Wilson considers themselves making the playoffs next year. I. Don't know if they're expanding the postseason to twenty four again. I really think it's a coin toss between those teams what say you I think he finishes a shark I think the reunion with Marlo the fact that they could maybe sell them on. If we're healthy, we're going to be a better team. I it's hard for me to imagine that this point even though he he indicated, he wanted to move last season because it was such a law season. FRESH FRESH TO ISIS. They say for every team when the season starts I, wonder whether. They've got. I wonder if they'll start. Nick exciting time. Speaking of exciting time exciting time for us. We have two of the greatest women's hockey players of all time. On the podcast today, Cammi Granato, Meghan Duggan and this is a great little interview. And now it is a privilege to welcome a joint interview, which is something we rarely get to do, and we rarely get to get to athletes have such high stature, but it is. CAMMI. GRANATO widely guarded as maybe the best women's hockey player in the US and Meghan Duggan who tryst retired again, one of the greatest hockey players in the US and we wanted to have you guys together because Meghan announced her retirement this week. And we've come on a look at what this means for women's hockey kind of take a pulse check of where we're at but Cammie I'm going to start with you because you and I talked yesterday about the first time you met Meghan I didn't realize it wasn't until twenty seventeen the year before that two thousand, Eighteen Olympics when they finally broke through and won gold for the first time in twenty years. Can you walk us through what that meeting was.

Mountains And Rivers
"So the mountains and rivers, Sutra this is a teaching that was written by Duggan Dougan was he lived in Japan and the twelve hundred. He's the founder of the Soto Zen School of Buddhism is the largest of the three major forms of Zen Buddhism, and he founded a monastery in the mountains. And for Togan, the practice of sitting meditation and the experience of Enlightenment were essentially one in the same so knowing. Path that leads to enlightenment is enlightenment is a very simple in a very profound teaching for me, and in the mountains and rivers, Sutra teaching after a long teaching about mountains and about water, Duggan teaches that in the end, mountains are just mountains and water water are just waters, but I think in that in that statement, it's very simple and very profound, and I wanted to share some of my thoughts about this, so there's a book. called pointing at the Moon and the author j Garfield and Graham Priest. And in chapter, six of the book at opens up with the statement that goes like this says before I studied Zen mountains were mountains and water was water after studying zen for some time, mountains were no longer mountains and water was no longer water, but now after studying zen longer mountains are mountains and water has just water. And this is an expression that has stuck with me. Since I heard it several years ago and fact, I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this in the podcast before, but the expression or the concept of the idea that mountains mountains water is water, and then mountains aren't just mountains and waters, not just water, and then after even more time mountains, argest mountains and water water is an expression that that really resonates in the and I WANNA share a couple of reasons why? doggone taught that. When we know something intimately is ceases to exist, and so do we. And he alludes to a concept in this in the Sutra that really. Speaks to me, he says in the in the teaching. He says waters freedom depends only on water. Now the first time I heard that I thought well. What does that mean waters? Freedom depends only on water well. If we think about this, the are what we perceive. Always depends on us as the as the one doing the perceiving. and this is this is something that echoes in a lot of Buddhist teachings is that? What I perceive has more to do with how I perceive than what the thing is that I'm perceiving now water again as the example when we perceive water, it gets attached to a story that has meaning for example, a farmer praying for rain. proceeds water once it starts to rain and might think okay. I'm being blessed I needed this rain and meanwhile another farmer. WHO's trying to dry out there? Hey might be praying for the rain to stop or for their Tanabe rain, and when he perceives, the water sees the rain may be thinking Oh I'm you know I'm I'm being cursed or I am trying to think of the word. That's the equivalent of curse, but not quite that strong. Maybe I'm being. I did something wrong and that's why it's raining on me. Or again a storm or I guess in any anything that we perceive can be or will be interpreted through the lens of us as the one doing the perceiving so in this expression that waters freedom depends only on water to me is to say that water is free to just be what it is when when it allows itself to just be what it is, it depends only on itself, so this expression is quite profound to me when I think of it in the in the context of myself, my freedom depends only on myself now that's a concept and a teaching that's certainly echoed and a lot of Buddhist teachings, or to say your freedom depends only on you. So for me, this is this is a very powerful thing. I think perhaps the mountains and rivers. Sutra is not about mountains and rivers at all, but perhaps the mountains and rivers themselves are a teaching.
Mountains And Rivers
"In the last podcast episode, I shared a poem called only this, and this is by Req-, and the poem goes like this. I you heat the water, then you make the tea, then you drink it properly. That is all you need to know. And that's the poem and I wanted to share some of the thoughts that were discussed in the online community forum on patron just to expand a little bit on the idea. That shared in this poem so the first one comes from Morella is the Cohen makes me think about how difficult it is to relax in the present moment, and just be or do one thing at a time the way the poem lists the actions makes me think about multitasking or are failed attempts at it since it's not actually possible to multitask, it also reminds me of technology. Technology Hans Story in his Book Living Buddha Living Christ when the Buddha asked sir. What do you and your amongst practice? He replied. We sit. We walk and we eat. The questioner continued, but Sir everyone sits walks and eats and the. Buddha replied when we sit. We know we are sitting when we walk. We know we are walking when we eat. We know we are eating. Those are some thoughts from Morella and Sophie goes on to say it immediately makes me think of wholehearted presence and the need to only ever do what we're doing. In the present moment so often we jump ahead and live in the future or dwell on the past, but really all we need to know is what we are experiencing moment to moment because that's all there ever is also when we do each thing with intention, we don't rush. Life becomes poetic, even something as simple as making a cup of tea can become art. And I liked sophie's thoughts here. especially this comment that life can become poetic, and the something as simple as making a cup of tea can become art. That's a that's a fun way of thinking about this Mike says the poem feels peaceful to me a feel like the feeling of a Warm Cup of tea in my hands. an says I like the feeling of a Warm Cup of tea, and my hands I enjoy blowing on it, and feeling the warmth coming off of it I love just waiting for it to cool down and having a friendly conversation with a loved one. This poem reminds me of all those things without even mentioning most of them, and it makes me feel peaceful. I, quite like it. Close quote. So these are some of the thoughts that were shared regarding this poem that I left in place of a Cohen and when I think about this poem. Only this I really liked the simplicity of it. You know it talks about it alludes to interdependence the nature of interdependence that things have causes and conditions before arriving at the moment of drinking tea. You have to make it and in order to make it. You have to heat the water. Water and I love that ends with the that is all you need to know for me, this is this is a poem that invites me to think of the interdependent nature of things. And what are the steps required to arrive at the Whatever the final thing is that I'm trying to do in this case enjoying drinking the cup of tea now. Of course you could read into this quite quite a bit because in Japanese culture. Drinking tea is a big thing, right? There's there's even the tea ceremony so I do think there's something to read into this line when he says then you drink it properly. What does that mean to drink the tea properly well? I don't know I'm not an expert on that, but for me. This poem is is quite simple and quite profound, which leads me till the topic. Topic that I wanted to talk about in the podcast episode for this week, so the mountains and rivers, Sutra this is a teaching that was written by Duggan Dougan was he lived in Japan and the twelve hundred. He's the founder of the Soto Zen School of Buddhism is the largest of the three major forms of Zen Buddhism, and he founded a monastery in the mountains. And for Togan, the practice of sitting meditation and the experience of Enlightenment were essentially one in the same so knowing. Path that leads to enlightenment is enlightenment is a very simple in a very profound teaching for me, and in the mountains and rivers, Sutra teaching after a long teaching about mountains and about water, Duggan teaches that in the end, mountains are just mountains and water water are just waters, but I think in that in that statement, it's very simple and very profound, and I wanted to share some of my thoughts about this, so there's a book. called pointing at the Moon and the author j Garfield and Graham Priest. And in chapter, six of the book at opens up with the statement that goes like this says before I studied Zen mountains were mountains and water was water after studying zen for some time, mountains were no longer mountains and water was no longer water, but now after studying zen longer mountains are mountains and water has just water.

"Let's talk about the media yeah the media is a powerful Trojan horse seven mereka if it's not a and I mean they have attacked president trump relentlessly yeah and the problem we have is we have fox okay yeah now fox is okay but Rupert Murdoch is ninety years old right and his two sons are liberals okay we have newsmax rage has been growing and that's a good thing yeah we have one America right which is a good thing but these are national programs they don't get into Vince's crab house they don't get in the fells point being close they don't get into those things go and they don't get into helping our people who need help to fight against the beast and as you pointed out the Baltimore sun doesn't report on any of these issues involving her son is one of them yeah right exactly the Baltimore sun is part of the super shadow government yeah they protect them yeah people say that the media has fallen in the tank for the left they fell in the tank for the Obama no the media never found the check for anybody the media are leaders in this offensive they are legally are part of the natural America they were and and they were targeted specifically for that purpose because of the vast influence they have they were targeted for subversion and infiltration by the Soviet Union in the nineteen thirties and we could go on for hours about how that happened and who infiltrated but just for example one person remember Edward R. Murrow of CBS Edward R. Murrow is one of the people primarily responsible for bringing communist it's two Columbia teachers college to begin inserting all of these destructive America narratives into our universities he was responsible for bringing those people over and he worked with a guy named Laurence Duggan whose son was an actual Soviet agent and he was friends with his son and he became a news anchor for CBS that's just one example there are many many trusted a man in America yeah right right he he gave the Vietnam War at eight a story that was a hundred and eighty degrees from what the truth was riled tell your doctor about with Walter Cronkite yeah that young people don't know who has what we member we only had three major networks in this country now I can tell you let me say some about yeah because the networks are required by FCC regulation as part of their contract to provide unbiased news nobody has ever called him that if I were in a position to do so I would pull their FCC licenses tomorrow and tell them that they better straighten out their newsrooms and start reporting what's going on because they should be challenged in the courts right absolutely be challenged because they have been really but they have such power and such influence and Americans have to get a constitutional public there operates through elections has to be given the facts at what's happened instead is they've been given the left narrative for sixty eighty years in World War two The New York Times was engaged in treason it was exposing things mark Levin's book yeah I mean it's just stunning it's stunning when CNN first started Ted Turner used to go on a show and he would bring some five Soviet KGB agents on the show with him had a first among them was Georgy Arbatov who is the head of member for US and Canada old KGB agent they would talk down president Reagan they would just sit there and terror attacks president right that was C. N. N. the communist news
"Morning everybody. Nice to see you all and I can see many of you. Very sweet. Today. I have another story for you from. duggan's three hundred stories. This is story number fifty? Sure lows shortcomings. Shirlow was asked by a monastic. I don't know the original nature yet. Master, please show me. By skillful means. And she said. I. Don't have ear lobes. Meaning I can't hear you. What what did you say? I don't know? I'm not hearing you. And the monastic said. I know I have shortcomings. Shirlow said Well this old monastic has faults, too. And the monastic said, what are your faults? And shirlow said my faults lie in your shortcomings. The monastic bowed. And shirlow hit him. What a great story right! It reminds me of what I hear. People so often say. I feel so helpless. I feel so bad. There's so much wrong. With me or there's so much wrong in the world. And I feel complicit. I feel so privileged. I tried to do what I can, but it's never enough for I'm never enough or I'm such a mess or maybe I have no idea what to do. Can You please help me? What should I do? Well. The world has always been a rough place. I don't think. You can find a moment in history where there was fairness and justice for all. So so, where did we ever get the idea? that it ought to be different now. We should be realistic and have a little historical. Perspective. This is the world. This is us. This is what we do. This is what we have always done. This is maybe we will always do this is. The world. And yet. And Yet We have another idea, don't we? It's so beautiful. that. We have another idea despite this, we have a different idea. We have the idea that the world could be. A better place, even a good place. We have the idea despite. All the odds. That there could be. Somehow, justice and peace in this world. WHAT AN AMAZING IDEA! Where did we ever get? Such a crazy idea. Is it just like some big delusion. Maybe, maybe it's a big delusion. But I think it's our delusion, and we come by it quite honestly. Just as we know that we human beings are always going to be subject to greed, hate and delusion. That's in us. That's actually built into what we are as an organism. That's built into the way our mind and bodies work. So also. It is built into us. To have the imagination. To project ideas of. Goodness Onto a longed for future. If we have to admit sadly that injustice and violence is a part of who we are. then. We also admit that goodness in the wish for peace and love is also. Who We are both these things are absolutely true of us.

"duggan" Discussed on Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard
"I think that You Know Doug is going to be that two by four wheeling all American and four. You know for me. I think JIM'S GONNA go down American hero in the wrestling business. Because that's who he was and that's who he is in real life. Let's let's there's some questions we with a twitter at Richard? Show some got an upcoming something wrestle. We're going to discuss the one and only hacksaw. Jim Duggan have a question. Drop them in the replies here. We've got some fun stuff coming your way including next and I'm really excited about this. Backlash of five and Sometime Bobby. End of the month as last few days. We're going to revisit a Saturday night's main event from April of Nineteen Ninety that I just watch that man apart for a and then we'll may we'll be back with Tito Santana but first. Let's get through some of these hacksaw. Jim duggan questions. We'll do rapid-fire Bruce. Are you ready? I am ready leave out. That's how many hoes that hacksaw use during his time the WB so is there a number of those in Ho? I know that sounds funny but I think ric flair has decided. There are five thousand. Woo So the the official. Wu has five post. How many how many are in the official hose four. Because if it were five did it would be. Who Or do Michael Elders wants to know? Where did hacksaw get us to by force for US RIGHT NEXT TO LUMBER? Be US and shit. Was there any Consideration Attorney Hacksaw. He'll and being sort of anti patriotic like stars Laura. I don't think that you know what I mean. Kind of like Cnn Hogan and people like that Hogan did it. Did it very successfully. Obviously I don't know if duck and they would have accepted him as a heel because the human being is just so nice. Autho talked me a little bit about and I don't. I don't think we've ever really broke this down but this eighties group legends. That Vince makes larger than life stars. A lot of them came from bill. Wants and so the take a guy with Pull on boots in karate pants and put him in neon lights. And lace up snakeskin boots and give him a snake in the bag to carry to the ring and they take the million dollar man or they tend to be awesome slap a sequence suit on him and give him maybe one of the more prolific gimmicks of the eighties. We're going to take a another member of the rat pack here and we're going to pay him up. Like a clown Matt Borne GonNa Become Doing Hacksaw Jim. Duggan just gets tough guy and you say hello and a two before. He started one in that deal. Did he not? I think they all one. Frankly good lord million dollar man Ted to be asked me walking around with limitless cash and traveling. First Class Limos Everywhere Matt. Born is the joint gimmick was off the chart and Doug and being duggan to me every one of them one. I'm just it's weird that you know. A Guy like Polka where crushing and and techs are not Texas Tennessee and people. Such a fan of his work. We're going to price them up Mac. More colorful give him a bird and everybody sort of had a gimmick and it was Maybe an occupational gimmicks like we get to several years later but they needed something that made their character. Standout talk to me about how. This came together for hacksaw where it's just. Blue Tights Chan. Usa Yoho and carry this board. Because that's all you needed with him and his personality as human being in what he did in the ring in his promos were pure blue collar working class. Americana in that to Jim. Duggan so hacksaw. Jim Duggan will turned up. That there wasn't a lot of difference in it would need to. Do you know where the two by four comes from. I mean I know the that we know where it came from before him but Vince let him keep it going. Like when he's in the territory system he would carry a two by four calls himself hacksaw. Sometimes though when Vince gets you he wants you to do something. Totally different water vent was once. Okay with the tube or forty. I don't think it needed to be tweaked. Some walsum didn't get tweet. Some did some didn't what about Ho and tough guy and all the other I identify mannerisms this anything from creative services or is this all just dug in trying to come up with something. And Hey we're gonNA stick with this again. Don't fix what's not broken. And in that regard Duggan did all of that and it was so straightforward that in that in that time it all worked and there were little tweaks to it but not a lot it feels like something right onto watts's territory for him to get in the corner and do the whole three point stance thing What what did Vince think about again? That was one of the signatures but that shit that was dug in long before he got the watts at yeah. I mean I'm just saying it became something that was a big part but I just I bring that up because I feel like sometimes over the years whenever Jim Ross will talk about guys amateur background or where. He played football. It's feels like sometimes that annoyed Vance so I wondered if him breaking out a three point stance would have Jam South Football. Don't do that shit again. It's fine tackling that something. Jim Duggan did. I think that the the annoyance as you say or the disconnect What I say is when you have a character that you try to sell the attributes of the character and being a four time all American or playing at East Tennessee Junior College Two and a half's semesters basketball Done fit and that's that's where the disconnect comes in. Sometimes it's I don't I don't give a fuck to the undertaker played basketball in high school and college. I love the undertaker. I WANNA be about the undertaker character. So we're telling stories. Here is fictional anyway. Sometimes yes we definitely. There's reality to it. You can expound on Real credentials win. It fits sometimes. It just doesn't fit does when we. Bach and writes Duggan. Seems the hat like half such a funny happy? Go Lucky type of guy. Was this always. The case behind the scenes was he's well liked by everyone or did he have the tractors. Why does leak Bach and always get ask questions? You give him all of your money. Good Point Tom. Duggan was well liked in and out of the ring without a doubt and in many respects especially in later years. The guy that you saw on camera and especially the guy you saw in the house. That's Duggan three blind mice on the Bruce ever had the pleasure of indulging in the wacky Tabacchi with Jim. Duggan is car state at my house. we were friends. There might have been a bomb that remained in the in the center of seat of his vehicle from time to time The healthy you think. Well I think the question is sort of post arrest. Duggan swear off of it and he wants to keep his nose clean. Pardon the Pun as much as possible or did he talk a lot of that up to. I'm just not ride with fucking cheek anymore. He was very careful after that. Yeah Adam. Was there any heat with Andrei? After he headbutted him in the face and busted his lip. Open God no shit happens you know. Nearly every other question is about whether or not he sort of torpedoed his own career with the sheikh arrest. And we'll never really know but in a different alternate universe. Fed arrests never happens you think Duggan will become WEF world champion at some point. I mean advanced. See Him as that level. Top baby face on the lunchbox on the cartoon type of character. Definitely I don't know if champion yes definitely is a top attraction without a doubt hands down and I think that Doug again it speaks to the human being that he is was able to come back from that and continue to have a great career so yes sidelined him for a while but he was able to pick it up and continue on James Randi riots. Duggan was advertised for the ninety. Three royal rumble but didn't participate disburse. Remember why not idea. Well let's wrap this one up anything else you want to mention about Jim Duggan the man. The character the performer. I Love Demand. Loved the character and he was an awful lot of fun to hang out with and be around for all those years. Happy and proud to call him a friend but this was fun because it was all good stuff my opinion yes we cover some bad stuff in his career but I think he came out on the other side of the doing just fine and Always look forward to seeing him. Did you see has has Little Stanton. W W where? He joined team Canada. What did you think about Dada have absolutely no idea well? We hope you have an idea that you need to something to wrestle when we Dig Deep Shit Backlash. Two Thousand Five. But then the following week man. We're going to have some point. I'm really excited about the month. Of May it's Tito Santana Frankie Kazarian special but at some point on ad free shows dot com. We're going to sit down and watch an old episode of Saturday night's main event. Sorry for the delay this week but hopefully you guys enjoyed. We're able to drop on you this past Friday. If you haven't already check it out Bruce and I watched the undertaker's streak come to an end wrestlemainia thirty and I listen to it but man. We were having fun with that. It was a good show and I hope you guys dug it and he is at Bruce Prichard I am. Hey it's Conrad and we're out of time. We'll see next week right here on something to wrestle with Richard and I thank everybody for being patient During these crazy times on us being able to do this on Sunday and with that I say shack made it push via. Could.

"It's done well but it's not my bag and I wish you'd best but yeah bill an Amway. So the territory. Yeah Duggan got out right. Time duggan laughed. It was it was rough going January of eighty-seven as when I think this happens. And its first major appearances wrestlemainia. Three at the event he runs to ringside pride rematch between the killer. Bees and the iron sheik Nikolai Volkov Interrupts Volkov's premed singing of the Russian national anthem. And you come in a big jacket. Page Jay my karch depart and tecate guy out. Get the baked. Dip As thank you remembering eight Marquardt All all of those e. Show up to the company Right after WRESTLEMAINIA. Three still very early on in in Duggan's run are you guys riding together at all in. Wwe Yeah like you. You're in the same company again with one of your old buddies as somebody. You would've had fun on the road with or not so much because I was only on the road for. Tv's what I went to W. at the time and that was pretty much a then I was really office. Corporate Shit. Well let's talk about may twenty. Sixth Nineteen eighty-seven I guess this is May Not just famous but infamous depending on how you look at it. It's the arrest of Jim Duggan and the iron sheik huge deal at the time. Unlike today wrestling is still very much protected. Back then and Good guys and bad guys aren't supposed to be Getting together like this bad guys travel with bad guys and good guys travel with good guys and here. We've got two guys who were supposed to be sworn enemies and their car together. Meltzer would write as most of you probably already heard. The biggest news of the week comes from Titan. Land Two twenty PM. This past Tuesday afternoon may twenty six Jim Duggan and the iron sheik were arrested on drug charges. Were driving through Middletown New Jersey en route to a car that night in Asbury Park when state troopers pulled him over as they saw doug drinking a bottle of beer while driving or walking to the car. The officers called the scent of burned marijuana. Cigarettes and upon inspection found several join on the ashtray of the car doug and was found with small amount of marijuana and three grams of cocaine found the chic. Shaving Kit Duggan was released later that day on his own recognizance while she was released after posting. Five thousand dollars bond. The two worked against each other later that night in a tag team match which ended when Doug and his chic several times with a chair leading to the pen and the incident would get considerable news play in several major cities including a two page article in the New York Daily News. Lots of play on the television news and many cities and even a mention on the national wires and in the USA. Today the incident proved to be a major embarrassment for Titan since dug in and Sheikh. We're in the midst of a heavily push feud and came out to the public that they were not only traveling together but presumably doing drugs together as well the news reports allstate that Doug it and she had been suspended by Titan. Actually both were fired later the same week from what I understand. It is highly unlikely that she will ever work for Titan ever again ever never ever are presume although this hasn't been confirmed but anyone that eventually doug and we'll be brought back although his character will certainly have to be changed mainly because of his potential value to tighten competition whereas she has little value to opposing offices equally embarrassing with the fact that in Duggan's hometown of Glen Falls New York. They were scheduled to have a Jim. Duggan day many of you know Don's father Jim. Duggan senior is the chief of police. This was not too long after you get to town with the World Wrestling Federation. And you're under Vince. His wing now and one of your pals gets busted here for drugs and his dad's a police chief which is probably something you can feel form about but also to his quote Unquote Breaking K. Fehb how fucking pissed was. Vince McMahon he was pretty pissed. And actually I was in Stamford at the time with. Paul Bausch in Paul's nephew We were meeting going over things you know for Houston and the potential of that deal. And what have you I hadn't moved everything up there yet but I was. I was working technically for Vince. Time and just so much to download on that that it was it was dug in he was he was in line to to be. You know. Be The man in so many respects so it was disappointing to the rest of the world. The writing together thing probably was. Oh my God wrestlers ride together. Come on fuck can get over it To those inside the wrestling world the stalwarts the die hards. That was taboo and just absolutely sinful. I remember is. We're getting this news. We were sitting in. What was the boardroom? At Ten fifty five Summers Street and thence is explaining this to us what's happened and so on so forth and that He hadn't really made a decision on what he was going to do. And Paul Bosch looks at this as well. You need to change that ad in your magazine in this. Like what does she need to change that ad in your magazine and there was a big. Just say no to drugs hacksaw. Jim Duggan in the magazine that.

"Everywhere. I'm like. What the Fuck Are you do? Hiccup manigault suck up. They arrested you trying to see what was going on now. Shit Man. These guys stole thing and are trying to exploit to in the COPS. WanNa come inside place now and I'm making every excuse in the world trying to just get out here man. I gave my statement and who's just an interesting night. She swallows Ghana okay. It's not everyday go on a police pursuit and jump out of a police car but to give chase on foot yeah. I'm GONNA need Chris McDonald. It gets to work to recreate that being boy sabotage so I mean and the motherfucker was like. I mean he wouldn't even breathe in heavy. Fuck man sucks well dug in actually makes his way events before you do right. How how did you hear the news that Duggan is going to the World Wrestling Federation actually Jake probably told me I. Jake was already up there but Diabetic Dunkin told me. Because he was he was gone. He asks bill for a contract. And your bill wouldn't wouldn't budge. Kinda saw guest. Bill Thought Duggan was bluffing and Doug instead he goes. Look I gotTa do what I gotTa do. And at that time everybody was like fuck. Yeah go do it.
"duggan" Discussed on Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard
"And You really needed that. Top baby face to come out of the woodwork. So speaking in Duggan was right there. Doug it was the man no doubt about it to me. We know what he's capable of with With the WWF. And when you go back and you watch his midsouth stuff and the first time I saw it was probably. I don't know maybe ninety seven when I first started tape trading and I would hear a lot about his matches with the OSCE and it's just weird to see these guys sort of pre f gimmick but it is a different style of wrestling if we've got maybe some younger fans who aren't familiar with the style of wrestling. That bill watts enjoyed. Could you SORTA smart and us up and tell us how the presentation was different from? Maybe we'll vince. Mcmahon put on well Kinda like and I think that in general those that worked Texas Territory Dallas Houston. Throw San Antonio in there because they had a little bit different that there's was a little more a Hispanic based in a little bit more geared towards the Lucia's but they Up. They were in there but bill. Watts Houston it was a big man territory where you had to be big in stature. To get over and it wasn't some place wasn't a high spot territory. One a lot of bumps being taken at the time it was more of a rough and tough a stiffer style of wrestling. Where so much so? The bill watts in particular would always point out New York in in other territories. Were like hey we don't have these Bambi? Pammy little wrestlers. We have men. We have been wrestling here by God. These men hit each other and it was all about how tough business was. So the talent worked a lot stiffer and it was. It was tough to do work nine. Ten Times a week. Specially with that style but Duggan was able to these tough guy. He was able to dish it out and he was able to take it really. If you've never seen any of his mid south where I can't recommend it enough the deputy you put a dvd out. I don't know probably six or seven years ago but this stuff on the network now but now that he's here and he's a a newly minted. Good guy is going to win the mid South tag team titles with Magnum. Ta In later. When the North American heavyweight title which is a Gargantuan Belt after the mid South North American title is retired when mid South becomes the WF in eighty six. Duggan would lose Terry Gordon in a tournament. Finale the determined ferry Gordon Terry Gordon you did. That's like Michael Haynes and buddy Rogers and Terry Boom Boom Gordon. That's how I man you've been hanging out too long because I think I would've said Michael. Haynes are out there to just Maccabi essays. Bs He didn't say he wasn't do blew or get it might even Tuten to. I don't know on air you back Omarkhil BS Baynes during a mass with one man gang gang would ram Jim's head into the Ring Post. But there's a bolt sticking out of the post pretty much goes right into Jim's head a still got an invitation in his skull from that and he's got to wrestle again later that night against Terry Bam Bam Gorden Us evils a cousin of Terry Boom Boom Gordon. React Boom Boom Ma Bell They're in different dressing. Rooms Terry didn't know how bad Jim was hurt. But they work the match anyway and eventually. Jim would team up with Terry Taylor Win. The U. W. F. World tag team titles for the second time But they didn't all sorts Come to a head. He's going to lose a loser. Leaves Town match to the one man gang any leaves the WF for the WWF? Talk to US little bit about where? Duggan was on the cards when this happens so I guess as a backstory. Maybe you should explain. What's the difference between mid South and the WF? The name and Vince Had the world wrestling federation and what's bigger than the world is the universe and that was bill watts's philosophy other going to have the world. We'll have the universe and bill felt he should compete with WWF. Since WWF trying to compete with him You know during Duggan's run Doug and had such a hell of a run in mid South in. Uw often he was a a top guy. I think his most notable program was with Ted Deviancy and as I said before they they had worked so many times in so many different matches every match it. It became a running joke The office views because we would get the cards handwritten by Jim. Ross and Jim had to have a description for every fucking match on the card home it was like a special challenge match or a whatever and Diaz Ian Duggan had been through every gimmick match. That there was I mean everything under the Sun. You name it. We'd have right and we would joke when we would wait for the cards to come in and talk about it and go God damn what. What are we going to have this? You know next week to promote what what is that going to be is GonNa be fucking monopole thing and get the car in this was an actual match that we had it was a Texas death loser leave Town Coal Monir Glove on a pole. Both men dressed in. Tuxedos inside of a solid steel cage. Now I think we might have had either been in that. I don't know if we had. I don't think we had the loser painted yellow in that but we did have a loose gets painted yellow along the way. But we had at least five gimmicks. I'm going to go through. Find the find the program so I can put out there because it was like the headline tried to promote the matches. Every Gimmick match you could possibly think of in Tuxedos in a cage was the Texas death. Coal Miner's glove on a on a fucking poll. Both men dressed in Tuxedos inside the steel cage yet loser that like what the fuck by the time you get all the stipulations out. You're done in our to our show. That was four teddy to go to Japan at one point and it just it was insanity to some of the different things that we did but that went on and on. Doug was just such a huge huge fucking. Draw the night that you're talking about with one man gang. I'm I'm three feet from him. When Duggan's head went into the post and there's a you know look you get potato and you react different way with potato than you do when someone saw in working bond or whatever but Duggan hit that postman and there was at the Thud and the Oh shit in. He just reached up grabbed his head. We got him to the back and when we did. The doctor didn't want to let him go out and work the next batch because he still had another match to go and we didn't WANNA stitch him up goes probably get busted open in the next match as well. Fuck I'm going out. You couldn't stop him right then from there you know they finally got him stitched up and I don't think the or the doctor that did the city. I don't think they cleaned it up enough because then it got infected. But Doug didn't miss any days he just kept go with this big infected hens this nasty not just every night going out and beating the shit out of each other mid Hacksaw Jim Duggan. Some course watts loved that shit. God Damn you ask good Shit Fucking gone out here at work. The guys are tough not pussies take off from a hangnail. This guy got seven thousand stitches in his head.
"duggan" Discussed on Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard
"Then he would correct that's dogging cheese day you J. J. Doug it tough guy and that was you know. Let's go around the corner and the whole thing was mispronouncing names so that he could correct you but I remember him coming in and roguishly being roguishly they would have a bunch of beer in the locker room and shit like that which was Kinda frowned upon with Paul Bosch. Paul wouldn't a drinker and he didn't like you know guys breaking into your own less. It was after the show and or if it was Andrea Harley race so you know it was weird in our remember Doug and just being a wild just kind of a wild raw talent at the time and then brody laughed Duggan I think went to Atlanta for a fucking cup of coffee and the next thing you know. He was with mid south in with bill watts but the they were doug Sharp told the story before it was frightened. Brody we shot this shoe Jangle. Where Brody was blinded by Duggan Buck Globally? And when brody came back for the big rematch for his big return he had a had a hair up his ass. For whatever reason and didn't WANNA work? He was mad at Paul. He was mad at Rogue a managing brody at the time so here Duggan S. two three fall match. And it's the big returned everybody's expecting brody to come out kick duggan's Asan Brody hits the ring and won't do Shit Duggan's trying everything under the sun trying to get Rhody to go. Brody's not selling anything not doing anything. He Finally but globally. Who's Donegal's beat the shit out of him just beat the shit out and dug in his throwing everything at Brody and brody one one selling it until finally burgess crossed his arms in the middle of the ring sat down. Crisscross applesauce lay down and Duggan covered him onto three then broke just sat back up and crossed his arms and buck. Groblje was pleading with bruiser. Brody come on please. Frank will settle it later. Just please do something. Paul Bosch was beside himself. He was doing commentary and even he got off. The microphone was slap at the match. Trying to get brody's attention But that was. That was early. Hacksaw Jim Duggan. But it was really dug in. Td's course he's born January fourteenth nineteen fifty. Four Glen Falls New York and then I guess that's actually not just K- fe but his actual hometown. He's a star athlete there in highschool letters football basketball track and wrestling. And I think back in like seventy three. He said a shot put record. That may still stand today. When he's a high school senior. He wins the state championship and wrestling in the unlimited weight class. Making him the first person ever from Glen Falls to accomplish that He actually goes undefeated that year. And the guy he beat for the title goes on to win the Pan Am Games later. That year is dad. Was the police chief there. And he's recruited play football By Ohio State but one's choosing southern Methodist University instead. He's voted the team. Captain they are and when he wraps up his collegiate career. Signs with the Falcons in the NFL but ultimately finds himself released. I think he cites some knee injuries. There and some Canadian football and I guess along the way probably when he's at SMU. He runs into Fritz Erich who encourages him to trial wrestling one day but when football finishes up he decides to call Fritz about getting into pro wrestling and winds up going to the sport. Oh Tori Him and I think Gary Hart gave Jim is first pair trunks and he sort of off to the races and learns how to run the ropes and take some bumps right there at the sport at Horsham. Did you ever talk to Jim? About Fritz? Helping them out and showing them the ropes and getting broken. What never ever did. And I always assumed that he had started somewhere in Upstate New York and came down and went the Atlanta stuff and when rogue found him and then Eight he was doing extra work. Zun enhancement work for the WWF. Time and you can go back. On some of those old superstars wrestling championship wrestling Final Jim Dugan. Yeah they're every. Little Town world-class it goes back to New York visit family. Is that new arnold scholar so he brings him to join the WWF. And as you said he winds up working as an enhancement. Talent for matches against Ken Patera ours and slaughter and the like and I think the office at the time wanted him to come up with something maybe a little more flamboyant than just big because that was his name big Jim but they They do decide Send him on the road and show him how to learn to wrestle including They sent him to Hawaii to work. With Peter My via horse we know the rocks grandfather and Jim wrestles there as the convict and wears a mask. And that's where of course he would meet a very young rock once upon a time and I think he's only making like thirty bucks a week wrestling there but he does meet a lifelong friend. Hukou and I guess if you're looking for a friend when you're trying to cut your teeth and wrestling hawkers probably about as good. It's going to get Yeah I WOULD. I would just a ride. Those go tales about good if he was making thirty bucks a week. He was probably on top there after he leaves Hawaii as you said briefly ghost Georgia championship wrestling. Russell said a few times and of course Jim says that taught him a lot. But he doesn't last only Anderson didn't get along with him but I don't know who got along with now. Think about it. So Jim Winds up leaving goes to Pensacola and starts working there. While he's in that territory it's Robert Fuller's of course that's where he makes the Bruiser Brody Buck Buck. Probably relationship Any winds up going back to the San Antonio territory. And that's where he becomes hacksaw Jim Duggan and he would say that has all power. Brody is the person who told him to start carrying a two before with him. Because JIM has a heel. The win your He. Oh you want to walk to and from the ring. Obviously but if you're doing you're good if you're doing a good job on the way back things might get a little tough so curious to buffer war. You can use it as a weapon if you need a and brody with that. That's the reason he carries a chain because he's a bad guy in se. Clear the clear the OWL way. I gotTa Tell You when my research? That sort of stood out to me. I I never assumed that the two buffalo was not sort of a much later creation and that Brozi Brody would have suggested it just to work your way back. Yeah it was something for big band to do and it was something also to give him a weapon but you know I don't. You'd be hard pressed and I don't I can't think of anybody The would ever say a bad word about Duggan He was just one of those is one of those guys is Super Nice. Human being in general so guys wanted to help him guys would go out of their way to help him and even win. Jim Got a taste of the good life so to speak. He didn't change. He was still just Jim Duggan and so I can see. Yeah definitely brody all along the way people would always trying to help him create make his character a little bit better larger than life while the big break as you said does come in mid South in Nineteen eighty-two that's when he moves to MID SOUTH WORK FOR BILL. Watts and Jim had the same experience. Everybody does not territory said. It was rough said he'd Russell ten times on a seven day period but he did say he learned more the business there and how to work and how to talk than anywhere else when he comes in debuted as a heel and He's eventually going to become part of the the rat pack faction they'd DB Aussie Matt Borne and Mr Olympia. And after hacksaw butchery debuts and mid south of course there's an instant feud here but who is the true hacksaw and the rats also feuded with stars like read and Magnum and J. D. and a lot of times we would see doug interfere in a D be Aussie. J. Watt match while wearing a gorilla suit there in Louisiana State Fair causing to lose a loser leaves town match and after DB ICU line. Themself Skandar Akbar. Duggan refused to go along with him and became a face for first time in his career. Talk me a little bit about the rat pack. This is We we don't know it but this group guys is going to go on to be a big set of stars for Vince McMahon. One day. Yeah they would. It was kind of your coming off of the free birds in a in a three man. Team of Michael Hayes. Buddy Roberts and Terry Gordy and the rat pack Meyer Recollection at. Think Olympia was a part of it for a short time but it was deviancy matt borne Duggan. Right it was three guys could interchange in. They had their individual programs but they also had the tag team program as well so it was three guys to them. Especially the could work in Matt borne instead to be Aussie Duggan. Who was the brawler? And you know the big bodyguard for lack of a better term and it was a place for Duggan to be in a group in learn because he still was a little rough around the edges still green but man he had that charisma out the ASS and size and look and everything else that you put him sick. Devi acid is gonNA teach him to work in GonNa teach him the ropes so to speak so it was a heel faction that had great workers in it and eventually they all spun out Matt went his way and Diaz. Ian Duggan can spun out into each into the program with each other that lasted seemingly forever. The rest is I say history. Talk to us about Jim diagnosed. He'll I mean I'll be honest. I can't imagine ever even seeing that. He's always been you say my whole life so it's hard for me to imagine bad guy. Jim Duggan is great. He'll because us a big tough bastard and go out there and fight in brawl with the best of him. So when you have hacksaw. Jim duggan against junkyard. Dog Dog was a national institution in Louisiana in the mid South and Duggan could give him a run for his money as a heel. Duggan was believable. That Hacksaw Jim duggan could do damage to j y de so people believed that he was easy to hey Big Me Nasty. Not The prettiest guy in the world and then after J. D..

Novak Djokovic Saves 3 MP To Overcome Monfils In Dubai Thriller
"Get onto that. Because Novak Djokovic won the title and beat Stephanus Sits Bass in the final in a really uneventful final. I mean it. It was the semi final was far. More interesting from a Jackovitch perspective in terms of being under the gun. He almost lost to Gal Mofaz which was sixteen zero in the favor of jackovitch and there are seventeen. Sarah what happened Matt? You saw it. Taylor's oldest time. Well I ended up failing a little bit annoyed with Cam on face in a which was really on Fab because this was his best ever performance against your by a mile and he did absolutely everything that I've ever wanted him to do in one of those big matches in that he had a game plan and he stuck to it and the plan was chased down. Everything and kind of do Djokovic what jockeys does to other players by forcing them to go to the lines and miss and Jackovitch was all over the place with a forehand stop. Partly I think because of my feces movement being so good and making him go coast to the Lions and yet when Mofaz had a chance he was just teeing off and smacking winners. I think he hit. Double the amount of winners Djokovic the whole match put himself in this great position opposite in a break but the whole time I was thinking either going to wake up in a minute and turn it on them or face is going to lake. Wake up and and throw in a bad game and it happened but then. Simone faces great credit. He served up three four five and five six in the second-set each time. I was expecting him to lose. Serve and each time. He resisted and how he showed a great amount of resistance in that second set saved a load of set points for Jackovitch. Got Himself in a position where he had three match points in the tie-break then then he woke up. And the eras came and Djokovic Duggan to cement credit. Didn't he didn't make the unforced errors in those moments. More Feast Dead Djokovic. Somehow on that second set in a tiebreak and then the third set was just a foregone conclusion with mom faces body was seen any falling apart by that stage but it was a it was incredibly dramatic match. I'm all face was the reason. It was dramatic because he did play so much better than they normally does in those matches and yet I still felt frustrated with them at the end because he just couldn't quite finish them all should he have won. Yes it feels really harsh to single out when play is ones show against Yovich because he does seem to make so many plays choke that I think that part of it is what you're doing on the other end but it doesn't take away from the fact that you can. You still feel like more fish. Should have finished
