She's a very good interviewer and Kirk and always gives it up. So here's one story from Tim Kirkman. He could tell you a million. He's a great storyteller. Let's hear one of the stories from that's what she said. Well, dad Shaughnessy of the globe. Job was the baseball writer at the Washington star who I backed up while he was there. And Dan introduced me to Earl lever for the first time. I think it was nineteen seventy nine we walked on the field together. And Dan goes up too early ver- who's this conic major league manager and says Earl this is Tim kurkin. He's going to be back me up. He's going to be covering some games this year and the help I can say this Earl looked right at me and said you tip at one. So I'm like thirteen years old three foot eleven I almost started to cry. And Dan looks me and says don't worry Earl only says that to the people that he really likes really John. I mean here let me hear another. I long I longed for baseball mattering the way that it did back then when Earl Weaver do even have a manager right now who's allowed to be sort of an American leader. Earl Weaver was somebody who can noted leadership, but they changed the game in the rules. There's no arguments anymore because of replay they look at the monitor they decide to challenge they walk out there. I mean, maybe once or twice a year, you'll have a guy arguing balls and strikes, but he gets tossed quickly. Because of that, we don't have those kick the dirt on the fire. And all of that what we have is that phony Joe Madam of those fake glasses. I mean trying to pretend smarter than everyone else when he's not let's hear another Tim coaching story from that's what she said instead of hearing Stu gods. Playing one of his hits one night at the Dallas Morning News. I've been in town about a week. We gotta tip the Ron Meyer the football coach at SMU was going to be the next football. Coach of the New England. And patriots was a giant story. My boss at the morning news said Tim our football writers are nowhere to be found. You have to write this story. So I call Ron Meyer on the phone fifty times. Clearly, it's off the hook my boss is you have to go to his house. I'd been in town for a week. And I didn't even get into my house. Let alone his house and Ron Meyer from Oscar Mayer at this point. So I finally get to his house ten o'clock at night nineteen Eighty-one, Sarah. I looked a whole lot younger than than I look now. And if it's possible, I was even smaller than than I am. Now, I knock on the door. He comes the door. I say, hi, I'm Tim Kirk Jin with the Dallas Morning News. And he says, okay, how much do we owe you this month? So. So. I have to play. I'm actually not the paper boy actually worked for real newspaper. So great. It's the sound of the day.
