It's boomer and Geo on the fan and the CBS sports network. Boris is Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo on the fan simulcasts across the country on CBS sports network and wherever you are on radio dot com good Tuesday morning it is at Jerry and Geo again this morning. What a screwed up day of baseball in new. York. We had that parlay that. We will talk about where the first leg with the Russian tennis player ranked one hundred in the world we knew nothing about didn't even know she was on this planet before yesterday. Wins us the first leg of the parlay all we need to do is get a degrom win in a coal wind after that, we got nowhere close with those two guys Vara Grachev came through for us but Jacob, degrom and Garrett Cole did not and a trade deadline where the Yankees did nothing which I thought was fine especially with most of their guys expecting to come back sooner or later off the injured list for the mets doing just a whole bunch of nothing I mean you WanNa talk about a meaningless hall that they brought in after the trade deadline and you saw some of the tweets come in like mets with a flurry of moves they may have gotten a catcher. Find out what? Todd Frazier's coming back in Robinson. Good Morning Jerry. Has It going man? Well, I mean it's going fine yesterday suck though. Terrible and I will I will say with the with the mets and the ground. So after Varvara. After she wins got the with that early. Lead Wow. They scored early for degrom and you're thinking not bad now. I didn't live. I didn't love his pitch count early he was. When he was throwing pitches and you figure I maybe can get through six or seven, and then he gets to the one inning and not only were they hitting him like they were hitting them. Oh. Yeah. And all of a sudden I wanNA. Give the lead fine it's to to. Oh now they're losing and you start to think there's no way they're coming back and then you get the home run from Robbie. Keane oh by the way he's on fire. Don't you know? And then before you can like, take a breath and say they're clawing their way back Brad Bronx go up and give on the first or second pitch right I guess it was the second pitch at five five three felt like fifteen a dirty in that game I couldn't agree with you more. It's exactly what it felt like that was just a nightmare and it was over anyway with the amount of people that were yelling at us on twitter and social media. About Gary in the ANC yeah, I mean Gee Man Choi I didn't realize this until I. Read this this morning geometries men choose got three home runs this year two of them off Garrett Cole. How does that make sense? Yeah. I don't know we've seen those type of excuse me aberrations in baseball before where some guy who's just some light hitting schmuck ends up dominating a great pitcher like Joe doing and Randy Johnson comes to mind right off the top of. My head now I know that G. Man Choi is a little bit better than Joe Mick Ewing ever was. But yeah, I mean it's bizarre and boy who is the guy who puts out all these baseball videos he was instrumental in the astros cheating stuff. He posted something yesterday where it is clear that choice sees a slider. He's just smiling at that first slider and then the next one that Cole throws to him, he deposits out there in. Right field. So it was almost like he is. He's just all over I'm like he's like you throw me that thing again and good night. It's just amazing how G. Man Choi, his own Garrett Cole, and the home runs at Garrett Cole is given up I. Mean I remember you're talking about the only flaw with Masahiro Tanaka for many years and how stone cold starting pitcher he could be in the biggest situations was you know that home run pug? Thought that we'd be talking about Garrett Cole in the same way I mean he is giving a. Cure Meyer in the upper deck I mean what I mean think about this Zunino to dead straightaway. Centerfield in his last start G. Men Choi a couple of home runs against Garrett Cole. This is something I did not expect to see. But I I don't know how he figures it out. I would expect that he would because he is someone who was so locked in an so focused in so pays attention to his craft. He's got to be pulling his hair out right now. Can I mean this is an insane amount of home runs that I've given up so far in this short season, and this is not what here any Yankee expected you know the way this bump in the road has hit him here I think every time and this is why we did the whole thing with the betting and had some fun with it last week not so fun for us you feel like. Every time Garrett Cole goes out you expect the Yankees to win the game and that has not been the case of late and last night I agree with you the home runs are concerning. It's it's one thing and that we know you mentioned Tanaka as good as Tanaka as always been you're right. It wasn't only that he gave the home run it was he would give up the home run early in the game and you know whether they be solo shots to run shot you sit there and say you know if he could just straighten that out. He'd be as dominant as anybody we were seeing and that's kind of happened to call now. Given up homerun after homerun now, the Yankees should be able should be good enough to overcome that. But at some point you know we've sat here and we've lauded them for the next man up mentality and has been outstanding for the last two years doesn't seem to matter who gets hurt the Yankees find away for that next guy to come up and produce right now they're not producing as much as you need them to then so they've got if they either have to get healthier got to figure it out soon because while they'll make the playoffs for sure. The fact that the raiders just own them this year he's really it's mind boggling. The razor much better right now as Yankees are currently constructed, which is not a fair statement because we know all the guys that are not around and our rehabbing and hopefully coming back in a timely manner but the razor just much better. It's almost like they're toying with the Yankees in a way because they've won so many games against them and I mentioned that the G. Man Choi Video I saw from John boy it's almost like they're like laughing at them. That's how much better they've been in the. Yankees so far this year I still think the Yankees went healthy are a much better baseball team, but we haven't seen that so I i. just it's hard to evaluate where they're at. There's not a lot of time in this regular season guys have to come back and have to stay healthy I. Mean. That's another problem with the Yankees is we've seen guys come back the most notable Aaron judge he thinks he's fine. He's talking about being one hundred percent, and now he's back on the I Allen's going to take the time it did the first time for him. To come back is I have to come back, stay healthy and produce, which is not a given. It's not some sort of panacea that these guys come off the the I l. and then all of a sudden the team is whole in great and kicking everybody's ass again. But right now it's a, it is a very, very frustrating situation for the Yankees and I still thought that they were gonna come back last night when Luke void hit the home run. Yeah I mean that was the difference you know you're talking about five three feel like fifteen three in the met game I thought that the Yankees we're going. To have some sort of special comeback against raise bullpen, which has been exceptional so far in the season but I really thought that in Luke Void I. Mean I know the Yankees had a rough stretch here. But without him, they may lose every game ten nothing. He's carried this offense in a way that I didn't think he was capable of, and by the way we forgot to mention that you know tyler glass now no hits the Yankees through five yesterday like just completely dominant you WanNa talk about a terrible trade I mean think about glass now in Austin Meadows came over from the pirates for Chris. Archer in. A deadline deal a couple years ago and at the time, and we thought at the time that the pirates got the better that deal with all writer, right? Because he had years of control and they went in on him, it was the perfect to go and get when they had their on the cusp of a wildcard and in tyler glass now looks like a cy young candidate every time that the Yankee semen last night was no no exception as he was just completely in control mowing them down. This was a bad baseball day in. New. York all around. It's pretty obvious statement and the trade deadline was just. Joe's reaction. I. Don't know if you heard it. Joe and Evan of the Todd Frazier it was just classic. Joe Evan gets the news because Joe if nobody told Joe Anything, he wouldn't know anything right? That's that's He has to be told everything that happens. So Evan tells him. He's what like the classic Beningo Watt and then says todd frazier all guys todd frazier threes you you bringing him back for and I think it's because I probably the the best answers at JD. Davis. Than they were letting on a beginning, but still it's like it just it. It drives you crazy 'cause like, oh, we van wagon and wants to bring todd frazier into give boost to the clubhouse like. Team stinks you're done I mean even if you squeaky to the playoff, you're not going anywhere average. Boost to the clubhouse good clubhouse guy like like, Todd Frazier somehow his presence is going to get Pete Alonzo out of a slump. Now Watch Pete Alonzo hit ten home runs at ten days after this. Well, I? I. Don't know yesterday was it was just it was it was a gross New York Baseball Day from start to finish and I'm glad you brought up Alonzo because he just seems lost and he's had you know he's had a couple of multi home run games this year but by and large, he's really done nothing. The batting average is what it is. He's been okay at first base yesterday obviously hurt them for sure but he is been you know as you feel bad for him because he's such a good kiddie it's such a great season. Last year seems like he does all the right things. It's just not there this year and I don't know if the book is out on him I don't know pitcher seeing him as new time around has been that big of a difference but it almost I mentioned on it was either yesterday or Friday forget I mentioned the fact that after a recent strike out, he goes back to the dugout news trying to pull a helmet apart. They can see the pressure is putting on himself and even numb. He had one ground out in a game yesterday I saw I saw this and you saw him it was it was the third out and he had worked the count to three. One Hindi got a good pitch on three two and then he grounded out to third. Yeah. See Him after he gets thrown out at first he's just like completely dismayed with his current situation it's written all over his face and baseball can do that to you. As we know it can just rip your guts out and guy like him who was riding the wave last year and the. Reason why I don't think it's so much the league figured him out is things the way they are in baseball these days guys. It doesn't take a full year for the League to adjust to you and and he was consistent throughout the entire season last year. There's so much video everybody's watching everything. They would have found that secret to shut him down at some point last year it was a full season dominance with him and I think this year it's just it's more him I, it's more a mental thing with where he's at that's the only explanation and those are the hardest things you can't nor it's not like a key. You can go into the clubhouse and find an unlock the answer to why the hell you're so bad and right now, I? Mean it's spirals to I mean it becomes this snowball effect and right now he is in the worst of the worst of it. Yeah. There's no question about it and you know they had they had back to back innings where they will up to nothing where they leadoff doubles they can move the runners over they can't get the run in that certainly hurt them yesterday. So you're right bad bad baseball day, but I will say Robbie can couple more hits home run your thoughts toll I've told you. Kidding with you know I know, but it's a fair point because I thought he was completely cooked and he's he's showing that he's not. But it's just it's even more frustrating when he's good when the teams bad because he was. Wholly unfair to him and he's still got something left in the tank and hats off and he came back. He had a short stint on the I l. and he came back. He's still is is hitting and I thought he'd come back and be terrible after he was hot and I was like. All right. Well, that's the end of it. Now, he's done in these check down and he has not been checked out. He's got every reason to be checked out I mean for crying out loud i. mean he's still got years on his contract at guaranteed money. He's got every reason to just. Mail it in and he has not. So I will. I will give him credit for that pro from my perspective when you bring in a guy like that attached to Edwin Diaz and the impact is supposed to be immediate and this is supposed to be a playoff team. It's even more frustrating to see him hit and the team be so bad. So he's in a lose lose situation with the way that that deal went down but I mean, I, guess it makes you feel a little bit better about things in that particular day but it can't because it's not like there's any future with him. That's the thing. I mean, if Edwin has somehow figured it out, that'd be a different story but. I don't believe he's ever going to figure it out. It doesn't seem like not here. That's for sure and even you know with the weekend he had as we know Friday was good and then we know what happened. You know after that? Even yesterday he goes in he sitting a hundred dollars a year hundred once but ninety nine on a gun he had that. Swing missed and you sit there and say, where was this? Where was this the other day and maybe it's what you point out. Maybe it's the high leverage situations I i. don't know he's just he's a puzzling puzzling pitcher to watch. There's no question about it and they're they're bad I mean right now they're an average to below average team they're five games. Under five hundred, you know it's still right in front of them, but you can't keep losing. You can't have four and five game losing streaks. You just can you know and especially when you've got games within the four and five game losing streaks that you give away I mean they're just they're killer losses and that's why this team is going to basically be fighting. For their playoff lives the rest of the month of September first by the way So here we go. They've got thirty days to figure it out I. Don't know that they will because they're pitching is not exactly great in their an incomplete ballclub right now. But what they are and you know it's you're right bad bad baseball day for us New York yesterday. Todd Frazier. Comes in and lights the fire that this team has been missing for most of the year I mean that's going to be. Just amazing to me because I don't necessarily believe in that stuff I. Really I don't I don't think that a guy who is just an okay baseball player that gives you a moment here or there, but is it a career whatever? To thirty to forty hitter. If even that can come into a clubhouse and then everybody just feels better themselves. I don't think that that stuff necessarily Hassi I. do think I mean I I would think knowing you the way I know you now I would think positively spread and I think that is a good thing. The issue I have with it is I don't know that this team lactic like it. It seems like a good likeable bunch. It doesn't seem like you got a bunch of bad guys on this team where they. Need that influence I look around, you can pick out every position. You tell me the bad guy on this team. It seems like they're having a good time even even know who's the veteran he's always smiling in the dugout. He seems like he's been a good presence for the young guys. Alonzo seems like a blast McNeil and Davis all good to Grahn doesn't say a bad thing like there anyone on disconnect Fourtou Nimmo's seems like he's thrilled just to be there. So I don't necessarily know you needed that. While I think it can be a good thing. Don't know that this team lack that yeah speaking of degrom. I end up watching the post game and for whatever reason these zoom press conferences when I sit there and I watched them in their entirety, they just annoy the hell out of me more than any other media session technically the way they are because of the questions. It seems it's not really technical yesterday was a double thing. It was technically and the questions one guy joined late and then asked this generic question that was the first question to be what happened there in the six innings was the first question right? Right and four questions. Later, some guy comes in he goes I missed the beginning what happened in the sixth. And I'm thinking if I'm Jacob degrom I've won back to back cy youngs. All right. I've been dominating this crap marlins team for the last three starts I had a bad inning. All right what do you want us? Let it go about that and he was looking at his fingers by the way a little bit where the blister was the last time and I thought he's at a factor maybe that's why they were asking the question but. What happened in the sixth inning? What's going to say like you know what I was feeling a little Tommy John. batchelor was going. You know what? Though I question is asked to you look so good what the because here's the thing about that sixth-inning they don't they didn't only hit him greg a just smashed them the home run was a blast the opposite field shot to right. You're like, Whoa, like there was all of a sudden like they knew what was coming and they were autumn whereas they weren't for the first five innings and speaking of what was coming another. Guy In a post game news conference in Jericho. Last night, he brought up the tip and pitches thing yes that was that was brought up. So now now that's where we are and that is like the last resort when a great pitcher doesn't understand when he's got good stuff like Stephen, Matt's who was not a great pitcher. But Stephen Matt's I've felt great I thought I was executing I don't understand and the tip and pitches thing ends up coming up. So, we'll see if well, Jacob degrom really doesn't have to fix anything he's been basically great outside of that inning yesterday but Gary Cole- Does have a lot to fix. So talk about this parley yesterday a little bit. Then these sort of the roller coaster of it I don't know if CEELO and I found a way to watch the tennis match and I'm so glad that I did because that's the only thing that brought me joy and sports yesterday was. Grachev Ceva Vara Grachev who by the way as a fighter she I think she probably you know how boomer thinks that everybody's listening to the show at times and he thinks that like you know senators have passed bills because you have mentioned and on. So I. Actually I think I. believe that the Vara Ceva was streaming on radio DOT COM and knew that we needed her yesterday she was losing Oh, she was not losing. She wins the first set six four. Wasn't even close really then she's down five three in the second-set and she fights all the way back I mean there was at at five four. Four five break points there. She gets it back to five five and then wins the set seven five she won. Whatever it was four straight points there to take that second set when she was down five three and she was, she was all over the place man. She was not losing I'm streaming watching on my phone fist pump and Vergara Ceva and as you mentioned the mets up to nothing with degrom in the mount against the Marlins, he'll take I felt. We were in business with that. But. I tell you. You know tennis is fun to watch when you gotTA rooting interest. It is not so much when you don't. But when you've got a rooting interest, it is it is definitely fun to watch like I never I'd never really gravitated to either Federer or Nidal like rooting for them I appreciated their greatness but it wasn't like I was fanny guys the last time I can remember being a true fan of tennis player was Pete. Sampras I always wanted to see Pete Sampras, win a long time ago and I remember rooting for him. I haven't had that like rooting for attendance I'm not watching a lot of tennis like we've just it's not on our radar so. It made me think like I gotTa start getting into you know finding a couple of tennis players unfortunately, Cocoa Goth is out of a yes. She's out already but I gotta find a couple of tennis players here to start back in because when you've got a rooting interest in tennis what a fun game to get involved. And surprise you know it's not if you're. Not, room anything. If you don't know who they are. That's true. But yes, if you have players that you like it's a, it's a lot of fun I used to I couldn't wait for for cap. Riady. To play back in the day her Michael Chang I used to enjoy Agassi I would watch. Do you remember the match at the US Open I don't I don't remember what year it is I probably say. If I had against eighty nine or ninety, or you're probably a kid the Jimmy, Connors match deep into the night where he threw away a set because he got he got behind the pretty much just gave away the last couple of games get to that next set and he wound up winning and he was an old aging players. Does that ring a bell at all? I not really no. I was checking out during the break because I remember staying up to the wee hours of the night the the matches on USA network. It was like a second round match. He had no business winning that was tremendous and you can you know, why could you? Get into the personality and the guy or bet in yesterday's case sure right one, hundred, one, hundred percent and I guess with American tennis you know Serena's been the most dominant force we've ever seen yes in the sport and that sort of doesn't make it as fun because really the only time that it's fun is when she gets tested because she's just been crushing people are whole career. So we've watched that fortunate to watch that. But outside of that in American tennis, we have I mean we have not had a ton of people to back especially on the men's side I. Mean. So that's why I think you know when it's been Federer it's been dow been. That's why I think it's sort of been different for an American tennis fan to get involved in this stuff you gotta sort of. I don't know find somebody that you end up liking which and he's a lot of these guys have personality. Dahlan Jovovich have great personality Federal Sorta like a flatliners but I don't know I just thought it was an observation yesterday not that i WanNa talk a tennis mad dog Russo this morning. But I just I just to me yesterday was sorta when I was rooting for her in an individual sport like that I was like. All right. Let's go for Ceva you got some stones. Well listen if you on good news, you can smile after Grachev a one it's been all negative I. Give you good news that I see on Radio Dot Com Leon Rosas interested in bringing Carmelo. Anthony back to the next. Have a great day. I saw that. I saw that and I saw a CBS sports dot com mock draft. Yeah. That I will tell you about before Lopresti coming up sounds good morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg. boomer and Geo Pretty bad day baseball in New York yesterday two aces on the mound and two losses that they are responsible for. This wasn't one of those situations where Jacob degrom was great for the mets for seven innings and in came the bullpen to screw it up or Garrett Cole was great and somehow the Yankees couldn't hit or against tyler glass down which they could not I mean both pitchers were just weren't good for their respective teams yesterday and Jerry was trying to cheer me up with a sarcastic note from the Knicks. which was that? Leon. Rose apparently is interested in bringing Carmelo Anthony back which I just don't understand why that is a reunion that anybody would be interested in including Carmelo Anthony himself just enough move on forget about. So. The other piece of that that was. I'm still frustrated by this and I know there's going to be a lot of. Junkies that are not going to understand. But this mock draft by someone named Colin Ward Henninger on CBS Sports, Dot Com give Ward Haniger little credit here. So he believes that the Knicks are going to trade up from number eight. In the draft make a huge play, go from eight all the way up to two. Wow. And trade with the warriors who apparently are not all that interested in the number two overall. which to me is insane but. Anyway. He thinks they're going to trade all the way up because they they have to have Lamelo ball now lamelo ball. I'm not going to knock him as a player at all. I can't I mean he is really matured into one of the top prospects in the draft I. Mean There's some people that think he's even a bigger prospect and better prospect and Anthony Edwards is who is projected to go number one to the timberwolves but you know it because the Knicks are who they are in this organization that Lavar Ball will comeback. In full force and it would be a circus again and there is absolutely no way that this guy who has disappeared for the better part of the last couple of years once Lamelo ball and he has another shot at something with one of his kids in New York, the number one market in the world he's GonNa stay silent is a big baller brand shoes are coming back even though that company went bankrupt and it's going to be a mess it just is so that's why I prefer somebody else now I don't know. Why in the hell? The warriors WHO WANNA go back next year to being a team that contends for championship and they should be healthy again and they have a number two overall pick the season was horribly went horrible for them I. Mean I don't know why they would wanna go back to eight because it's not like there's anything really that the Knicks could trade like you would think that right if you're trade if you're swapping to an eight. What are the Knicks giving up a future first round picks. Probably probably RJ birth Mitchell Robinson like I. don't even WanNa. Know what they would give up. The only thing I can think is that the warriors just don't like what they say. And if they can trade out and trade for the future, they're going to do that. Yeah, I mean and to me that's a red flag right there. You know the idea that they don't that they're willing to part with the number two pick I mean, that's exactly what that tells me that they're not thrilled with what they're going to get there. Yeah I mean. It's so he's thinking this guy and I know it's a mock draft can't get wrapped up in it, but it's the warriors reportedly aren't as high on ball as many of the other teams at the top of the lottery. So I mean so they'll take somebody else although trade back a spot but to go all the way to eight, which is of the worst spot, you could possibly add in this particular draft to me seems nuts. So and if the Knicks ended up Megan deal, they betrayed no one of their young players that actually has a little bit of promise or the B basically punting the draft for the next couple of years and. I wanted to see either of those things not for Lamelo Ball for Zion Williamson maybe but not for Lamelo Ball Carmelo and Lamelo. Nick off-season to remember. Boy. All right. CEELO is air to recap the crap from yesterday. What's happening Chris Right Yanks now one seven against the raise I blame you. Yeah that's fine up. On you yesterday I think the takeaway is this news. Here's the takeaway I'm going back to my bedroom GM double plays enough with these. Stupid. Garrett Cole I'm done I'm finished I. Think the point is just really hard to bed baseball on a ninety days off stop. Anything not yes I understand but like just look at yesterday Angie hit on it right a tennis player we've never heard ranked one hundred in the world wins in straight-sets right? We know that in this two best pitchers in baseball arguably two of the best go out and you know so your theory is Baseball but easy to bed tennis with players we've never heard. As A. On a given day just given day. It's all random like the titans going in and beating the Ravens in the playoffs that made sense. It's all random who? Didn't make a lot of sense but at least all the point spreads are a little different than trying to bet the run line in baseball. I know we didn't do that in this case. The. First Time around was Gary Cole winning a game. How about he doesn't stank how about point and then he did because you don't know. Just like you don't know basketball or football hockey exact some cases the I would say the odds are a little bit more in your favor and perhaps we were a little bit too a little bit too confident about these two guys yesterday and it blew up in our face and I will take responsible because two of the best pitchers in the game, what are you going to do? It happens? What are you gonNA. Do Nothing God bless Varvara Because she at least got us to figure one four five. That she got three o'clock. Well, yeah. I I suppose until that sixth. Yeah. You're right I. Nervous, in that second set and I texted GM, she's GonNa make a sweat it out, and then she just turned it around and dominant the rest of the way. And I did enjoy G G turned me onto you know watching the livestream and I texted him I don't know he saw it as you're watching them because there's no fans and their outside at those courts that are right next to each other you hear the dude on the adjacent court just grounding. Top of these two ladies trying to play you know Nice match of tennis in this guy's just over there. Every ten fifteen seconds. What a bizarre scene that was streaming that like one of those courts that we would never see on TV, they'd really be no fans around in any sort of situation and then your streaming and just. Hearing that. A. So strange. Strange it was enjoyable until La the mets spit the bit but let's go to the Yankees I. Last Night's game at the stadium and Tampa Bay jumping on coal right out of the gate near is the one to two Choi. Swung on a fly ball to right back goes frazier on the track at a wall sees Garm. How do you like that? He's seven for eleven with three home runs against Garrett Cole. It's a two run home run or right and Tampa. Takes an immediate to nothing lead John Sterling here on the Fan. So great career numbers for Choi Against Coal as Jerry mentioned, he's got three homers this season two to them off of coal. Go figure that non home run hitter Kevin Kerr? Meyer. took cold deep in the second deck in. Right in the second inning, five innings of four run ball for the Yankee Ace two more homers allowed back to back losses at the Yanks felt the five to three tyler glass with his third straight quality starts two of them have come against the yanks now six innings pitched shutout ball one, walk nine strikeouts. Yankees are five for fifty one with runners in scoring position against Tampa Bay this season so they're not scoring against them and. Now. They're as has put together back to back duds plus glass. Now out pitched the last time these two hooked up stadium few weeks back three starts in a row were Cole has allowed multiple homers don't tell our boone I mean look it's a little surprising I think that'll as we as we go here, I think hopefully that continues to come down as he just continues to execute a little bit better on the course of. Can continue to come down when it's actually increased his last three times out I. Do give Cole Credit I don't think some people have said Oh here we go another free agent that can't handle New York I. Don't think that's the case here because if you watched him last night after the game with the media, he picked apart every last detail of the start first and foremost certainly not what he was expecting heading into the game. I mean, I, feel really do. So that's part of the reason why it was. Even more. Undesirable, but he genuinely seems to be at a loss as to what to do hitters are ready and they are barreling him up more often than not. I like the adjustment as easy to throw a different pitch or like. Move sites or just. Just, be better I mean, and then he kinda trailed off for five or six seconds before explaining why he's so aggressive in the zone rather than living off the corners trying to fastball way, you miss a couple inches off the plate by and large executed fastball way. But the bottom line is you do that four times guys on first base. So there's gotta be an adjustment at some point there a lot going on in his head and. You could see the wheels spinning as he was going through all this with the media. Last night, we will get you some more of it throughout including him talking about pitch tipping that came up and he basically said all pitchers tip at some point in any given star just a matter of how many pitches and a combination of things that has led to the struggles he will continue to work on it Masahiro Tanaka opposed by TVD for the. Raise in game two tonight that's become a popular line throughout baseball. We'll have pre game on the fan at six twenty, five trade deadline wise for the Yanks they did nothing prices were apparently to hi Aaron Boone just fine with that. Absolutely we have. We feel like we have a group capable of being a championship team that's continues to be our goal. You know especially as we kind of weather through this time, that's been a little bit. Difficult for US Brian. Cashman tried he was working the phones right up until the last few minutes but nothing came to fruition. Unfortunately, we were unable to conclude anything. So you know whether we got close or not doesn't really matter only matters if you actually can find that match conclude and that didn't happen that's one I had not heard before the concluding as far as you'll goes he he went to that a couple of times yesterday, which is. One of those cashman speak things I guess not being able to conclude. That sounds like a medical condition. It's strange and I don't know how you guys feel about this and I see this when teams don't make a deal and they have a couple of guys that are injured and coming back. Oh well, they acquired Aaron Judge, James Paxton, and Zach Britton at the deadline those are they're no they're not those guys were part of the team to begin with. They don't count as new players. It's not like they started the year not on the team at all they were on the roster they got hurt they're gone, and at some point you hope they're gonNA come back and. Maybe be able to stay healthy for more than a day or two. So while they didn't make a move, that's fine. But let's not act like all. We've got this all star team coming. Yeah. That's the team you were supposed to have to begin with. So let's not make a big deal out of that. Yeah. boomer loves that whole thing it's like a quarter and a big time bad at the trade deadline when a guy comes off the deal but the other part about that is everybody assumes that win those guys come back they're going to stay healthy and going to produce and doesn't always happen. Now now, it does not. So and I know cash made the point of all Britain's closed and Torres is clothes and we'll get judge and Stanton back at some point at all well and good but I mean again, look at. Aaron Boone told US Aaron Hicks said wouldn't be a big deal. Hick said he'd play last night and he didn't. So I'm sure maybe it's not a big deal. They're giving them an extra day with the calf cramps but that's another example of the Yankees giving you. Rightly to give it he didn't. He didn't start the game and he said he was play so. I understand but it's not like he was completely on ice you know that but that would have. Been Recently so it makes you raise an eyebrow I think more than maybe in. You know prior to last year where you didn't worry about this stuff as much but there's a track record and there's a history there now. So hopefully, that's not the case but based on what's happened with some of these other guys it's hard to say now earlier in the day shortly before the deadline arrived Jacob degrom, the mets were giving it up to the Marlins in the sixth inning pitch back to Cooper. Hit High in the air to left field in deep. Forget it. This is long gone and into the second deck in left field for Gareth Cooper. The former Yankee four, hundred and fifty one foot a solo bomb how he rose WCBS eight eighty and yes Pete Alonzo makes the big error to open the floodgates after that. Perhaps that was assigned to ground was losing it a bit yesterday's Miami ends up with four runs. Only one earned they went on to beat the mets in that makeup game at Citi Field Five to three. Here's degrom on what went wrong. Made some mistakes over the middle. Felt good all game, and then you know left a couple balls over the middle and wasn't able to get us out of that inning. No finger pointing at Alonzo for his defensive GAFF. But of course, Pete was bummed about it. It's tough play and I felt bad 'cause I know. I was in a good position I did everything I. Don just didn't make the play it's interesting and Chris you've watched baseball longtime you too and this is one thing I've never understood. Maybe I'm missing something the idea that three of those runs are unearned because of an error at first base with nobody out. Enter. He's getting the rest of the evening to me is comical. Yeah, I mean that is definitely a loophole. You'll. Tell me that that guy on bass is not an earned-run. Okay. Fair enough. You're the other two should be no you're right it because did I've I'd have to go back and look at the play by play. Did he get the next guy out? He might have, but it still has just been the second out of the inning but I think it they kind of follow the track of the inning you've. I totally yet I understand there was one mistake in that inning and if it was the third out. Even, if you told me, there was one out. Any makes that our any retires the next guy. It's goofy because he really got lit up that one is tough to follow time strange agree with that four straight losses for Luiz Row Haass's Club now getting late early each one hurts more right now. A couple of times you've got two strikes particularly against me. and. against. Farro just can put them away. All right. That wasn't quite what I was looking for a little miscommunication between fleets and I anyway Robinson, have a good game to for four solo homer his sixties batting three, seventy, five was. Three seventy five. Nice. That is pretty pretty robust. Twenty two year old Trevor Rogers picked up his first big league win five innings a to run ball marlins or fifteen and fifteen the mets now fifteen and twenty they're off to Baltimore for a two games with the orioles and they are tvd as far as their pitcher for tonight and I think like the rest of the week pretty much. Until set Lugo starts again I guess at Asher. Would you Kaczynski for Baltimore tonight now Brody Van Wagon with three moves yesterday's you guys outline they bring back todd frazier from Texas. They also picked up Robinson. Torino's from the Rangers as well as Reliever Miguel Castro, what's the message to the team and the FAN base here? We are far from quitting on the season this year that hasn't gone as smoothly as we would've liked, and we have a lot of bunching up from teams in the in the National League particularly art division. We've got to play better baseball long way from come. Get us right that seems like jahns ago now and the messages that we have added three also below average players. Of this clubhouse, which is mainly below average. Which shows you that we went out there and we really tried to remain not so. I guess on the surface it seems that didn't give up a whole lot. You know no major prospects couple players. We'll see what that turns out to be down the road. Obviously. Elsewhere, the padres keep on adding they acquire Mike Club here in a yeah and winning and a nine player swap with Cleveland yesterday obviously been a rocky few weeks club injured but happened to be joining San Diego. Now yells a and same roller coasters everyone else for the last twenty four hours sin you know for sure somebody than for sure not the padres and then back to the call at Tinian today and finding out that it is in fact Padres Anna. More. Exactly. About how and think about how his life just changed. He had a clubhouse that hated him like legit hated him and now he gets to go to San. Diego California. For good team not too bad on top of yes. And at that point, they had made the padres five trade with five teams involving twenty two players and two player to be players to be named, and then I think they went out and made another minor one right before the deadline. So they were obviously very active. Elsewhere, the marlins picking up starling Martine from the diamondbacks they traded Jonathan Vr to the Blue Jays who were active. They were really the only team in the two made some moves. They had Robbie Ray from Arizona Mike Myers Mike. Minor rather go from Mike Myers from the Rangers to the as speaking of the as their series with the mariners postponed through Wednesday out of abundance of caution that is a terminal B, is used quite a bit this year, some additional cove nineteen testing and contact tracing no other positives that heard though right now I in fact I think the one person one positive test came back negative yesterday. Thought it seemed a false positive but I guess they're going to go through another couple round just to make sure they have these positive. Let's get it together I. mean the NFL what hundreds of them so that one weekend that's right. Crazy. NBA. The Thunder Force in game seven with the rockets wasn't Westbrook down the lane kicks wide radic. Seven point, six seconds left. Turn it over. He hurry down the laid without a time out called. Out About. Matt Pinto Thunder Radio Key play there is okay. See holds off Houston at one four, one, hundred and no turnovers. We're really the story in the fourth quarter Chris Paul Fifteen points in the fourth five of seven shooting he was three of three from beyond the arc zero turnovers Russell Westbrook and James Harden combined for ten points and they turned it over three times. So the thunder get a big win their Paul had eight of his team's final twelve points. He finished with twenty eight at sets up game seven between those two in the early game. The heat with a full week off took the open from the bucks one, Fifteen, one, zero, four, Jimmy Butler was. Red Hot playoff career high forty points with six of six in the final six minutes of this game as Miami gets off to a good start. In that series, you get the Celtics and the raptors tonight. Also game seven between the nuggets and the jazz islanders and flyers will play game five, seven o'clock tonight and the Tampa Bay lightning await the winners they eliminated the Bruins in game five of their series. Last night winning three two in double overtime G we'll hear from your boy Dave Michigan probably next. So get ready for that, and the islanders looked to move on to the Eastern Conference finals tonight. So fans are all fired up on lathered up for that. Is that is happening in just a matter of hours later on tonight the morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg. boomer and Geo. and Geo on fan CBS sports network again radio. Dot Com. Tuesday, morning after a rough day for the mets and Yankees Brodie, Van Wagon, and doing. Nothing at the trade deadline I mean, yeah he brought in three players but really who cares honestly, the team is not very good. Those guys aren't GonNa make much of an impact bringing todd frazier Brac back is more of a punch line than anything else I know he's a great guy and I know he's a local Tom's river guy and little league world series and everything else that you're going to. Hear with Todd Frazier every time that he comes to the point but someone that doesn't necessarily produce at the level that you need, and I know that why he's here because he's going to fill a role because jd Davis seems to be going on injured list for maybe longer than the mets wanted him to. So you have that and he's played essentially day for Texas so far this year but. Even Louis Rojo said it himself last night or yesterday afternoon after the game he said it feels like time is running out it is teams. The season. It feels like time is because it is on as as for the Yankees they will make the playoffs. It's really wear these guys that are not. With. The team right now are when they get into the playoffs meaning everybody who's injured where are they in their injury journey by the time that the playoffs star is Aaron Judge GonNa come back and be. Someone who was dominating baseball early in the season or is he going to be a non factor is John Carlos Dan, going to someone you can actually fear in a lineup as you just going to be a walking muscle in these are the questions that we're not gonNA know the till until we get to that point, I, want to go to Anthony in Westchester quickly what's going on Anthony? On jail things man I was thinking me and my son Watch and screaming his head off nine years old scream and of what's going on listen I think Garret is phenomenal. I just think you know having a baby maybe. They all rest. Thrown his routine off a little bit. I mean come on guys. You got to get the guy at break. He's GonNa be alright he's GonNa pull through and the second thing I want to tell you go I got a bulldog and he loves to attack my wife whenever she puts garbage begging. Nominal. It's it's. It's. It's. It's I when I hear you talk about your bulldog I saw just talking about mine it's. Well Anti. It makes me feel hell of a lot better and if people miss that initial conversation every time I take the garbage out bulldog a tax it as if it is some sort of monster coming from my life and when my wife takes the garbage out for whatever reason nothing happens I think she's just overly protective of me the baby thing. I don't want it I don't to dismiss it because have you ever gone having gone through having a newborn and being fortunate to have that time because I mean at the time you're thinking Oh my goodness this is this is different. This is new, but I mean obviously the greatest gift you could possibly have. It changes your life it does and he's never had to deal with that. I'm sure he wants to be active I sure. It doesn't WANNA disappear and go into another room and never get up and help and. That could make I. Don't want to dismiss it I mean it could be a different adjustment for him. Do I think that he's a Having problems giving up home runs because he has a baby. No but I mean, it is part of his story right? I mean it is. So it's just one of those things I used to totally dismiss before I had a child of my own and now understanding everything that goes into that it washes mild a man shoes, right? Right of course. Yeah. Changes Perspective sometimes. You know a friend of mine. Told me yesterday that? that. His wife was pregnant and I actually felt good for him and I had to tell him that I felt good for him, which I and then I. had to tell him why. I don't know this is why I wanted to run this by. Okay. I wanted to run this by jog my memory with this baby call. So, I felt the need to tell him that I was genuinely happy for him as opposed to just saying I'm happy. For you guys everything congratulations, I had to go the extra mile to say. I'm not normally happy. For other people who situations but for you I'm especially happy like I felt like I had to say that now is he is skeptical person is he someone that's not thrilled the baby's coming in the donor? No, no, no no no they they know he's absolutely thrilled at a baby coming. But I guess it was a more. It was more look into my personality and the fact that I had to make sure that he really knew I got I wasn't just paying lip. Sir How long? How long have you known this guy? About ten years Okay Yeah Yeah I eagle in the extra mile. Make sure that you're on board I support you it's going to be great I get for him. Yes. Yep. So and that's another reason why I felt extra great for him. Yeah. What? What you've become the you become the veteran probably in your circle of friends are especially if you guys are the ones that I kid you know it's almost like you know for us to think I want say might have been the first for the circle of friends that we have. With Matthew and then so you know lot of people would ask you would you do this? How is this like and you almost feel like we were just trying to figure out like everybody else So perhaps hearing that from you gives him a boost confidence now. Yeah maybe excited but I just feel like there's a lot of times that I'm telling people. Hey, congrats on stuff for not just necessarily about babies things but things in life like, Hey, you know great job I don't really care you know but I say that because that's the thing you have to said that's the whole thing about small talk that's just so brutal. Yeah. Have you been? How's the family? If you know if you cared you'd probably call more often. It's it's so true or ask once in a while. I. Am I'm jealous of the people that. Genuinely are interested in everybody that they come across and there are people like that. There are people like that and you find out about those people unfortunately when they pass away, that's when you find out about how great somebody is because then they everybody comes through with these experiences, this should not tell the story sometimes, they don't tell the stories when the people are alive I mean that's when you find out about sure and there are absolutely people like that and I've I've come across a few where I feel like, I just met this person they don't need to care about me think. or at least they fake it really well, yes I know what you mean I know what you mean I. Feel like. I. Can Sniff out the fraud in that situation. I really do I. Really like is there's people that really look in your eyes and listen, and there's others that Alaska question than their eyes darting and eyes of your head looking beyond you. Talk to or down at the phone or whatever is going us. It's so true. Have you ever been out to dinner with someone or line show wherever where they can't get their eyes off the phone and the conversation is just pointless. Hundred percent pointless. There's nothing worse. It's horrible. I are. So that's why when we used to drive in together. As Quirky of a friend colleague, whatever type of relationship you want to call it? That's why it worked out. So well, we were good like I would pick him up and it would be more than it's going on. You see the article in the paper I did. Okay. Turn the radio on and there would be times I swear to God there would be rides in were nothing would be said for thirty minutes and we were good with that. Some people are not good with that. Some people are very uncomfortable in a situation like that well, when there's an understanding and you know the person, well, you can get away with something like that I mean if it's A. Chance encounter and you have to ride in a car with somebody and you don't really know that person sitting in silence. That's very, very awkward. Very Awkward. Nobody knows somebody. That's yeah. That's totally fine. Yes. So yeah, I mean I I don't know I just. I wish I was better with those like a select group of people that I guess I would put in inner circle where I feel good for them when things happen. But then outside of that, I have to fake it for everybody else who's a guy and I'm not saying it because we're working with them this week but a guy who will ask you about your family and genuinely cares is Bob Dwyer like that's one of those guys that you actually know he gives a damn and when you talk to him, he listens now sometimes he talks too much but he listens one hundred percent. By bulking side I'm joking and I think I can hear my head. So tell me to drop dead and that's fine. But he's about as good guy though as you'll ever meet and when he asks about your kids and your wife, he cares. Yeah now are you is it a terrible thing to tell somebody like just flat out that? You don't care about what they're talking about? I. Think. It's rude. I don't know that it's necessarily a bad thing. It's rude. It don't you feel like you're helping that person it depends if they're trying to just get stuff off their chest, you're being a good listener. Well, that's different. I mean if someone's leaning on you for advice or I've gotta run this particular thing by somebody. Yeah. Because because I have to get off my that that's different like that's probably a good friendship. But like in a small talk situation where somebody's trying to talk to you and he's like I was thinking about starting. To just go now like I. Good I'm good. Yeah. I'm. Not sure to be honest. Because think about it. All right. So this person now doesn't have to worry about if I was telling them the truth or not about being interested in what they were saying, yeah we've both now save time to do something. Productive Yeah. So, why not? Really. And if somebody did it to me, I think I. I think I would probably respect it started. Fliegelman. Let's remember this next time. Gee starts a story that we're not interested in the J.. No one cares? You know it's funny. We weren't my wife and I went out to I gotta be honest. We're good. I'm telling you. But this is what got in my head to somebody did this somebody did this to me? My wife and I were out to dinner not that long ago there's a someone comes over to the table we start talking random person. and. We have a conversation I, start telling story about something and this person was checked out. Right away yeah right away. So I was like I was like you know I was like I'm just GonNa I recognized it and I said and I wasn't annoyed because like all right. This obviously is not my story. This is not a good enough. So right. So I said you know what I'm just GONNA stop. And the person at the person said to me and. said. You know it wasn't that great of a story and I said, yeah, you know what you're right? I'M GONNA I'm GonNa Shelf that one and I appreciate the feedback. Have you ever once my wife's got a friend of. A friend of hers that will sometimes. It doesn't matter who she's talking to. She will just check out of a conversation and yes, you to death the my wife from time to time in the middle of a story, we'll take a left turn and then just. Walked off the cliff. All right. We got to the doctor and everything is fine. The. person she'll say, wow. Yeah. Cool. So and then move on and she doesn't hear a thing that's worse than telling them just to stop. Yeah I've I've done that when my wife's on the phone like like texting or looking at something whatever scrolling instagram I know she's not paying attention I've actually I've done that and I've had I've gone on for a couple of minutes where I've just said. You know what? This is where it really works well, when there's another friend involved. So if there's someone if it's like you know three of us sitting somewhere and I can have a conversation with the other friend and she's checked out that's when I have a lot of fun with it. So because then the other one understands what I'm trying to do and I'll say I'll say, yeah, you know it's it's unfortunate that this asteroid is going to wipe out humanity. Yeah, we had a good year wives acting like she's engaged and she's really not. The. Damn phone though. That's a good intercourse between you guys. That's right. The intercourse between managers and players we have not seen so much here. That's right. It's the morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg. boomer and Geo. Over in Chino on. CBS Sports Network CEELO's got the update wasn't a lot of good stuff from yesterday and he's GonNa detail at all. What's going on Chris brought to you by winters bros. waste systems long island's number one choice for all your waste collection and recycling needs visit winters, Bros. Dot, com third straight start in which Garrett Cole has allowed multiple home runs now. The one one is hit in the air to eat right it is I bet as far as gone. Kevin, Care Meyer hit that ball deep in the lower in right and Tampa takes a three nothing lead John Sterling second and call on the Fan Ji Mon Choy and Kevin Cure Mar taking cold deep. In this one he was done after five innings and four runs back to back losses after not losing a game for over a years of raise beat the yanks five to three there. Now, seven in one in the season series with the bombers Aaron Boone made. This point last time out for coal and he's sticking with it and hitters more chances against coal knowing that their opportunities will be limited from a game planning standpoint. You know I think guys sell out for some things a little differently than they normally would and and sometimes those mistakes can turn into slug which I guess code word for homers allowed from Kohl's perspectives that slugs. Yes. From Kohl's perspective, he's surprised that guys are squaring them up as often as they are. You're right. I mean the home runs the the doubles it's just you know whatever over the plate. The. Hitters very certain of what's coming and he doesn't like to nibble comes right after you but perhaps we'll have to adjust based on the way. Hitters are attacking him whether that's an approach or. Trying to get an edge with with a tip or or whether it's A. Good swing on a good pitch and maybe some bad luck. Maybe a combination of all three and really put my thumb on it. He'll go back to the Jong. Board. Before facing the Orioles and Baltimore over the weekend as for the Yankee offense, they were no hit by glass down through five he ends up tossing six innings of two hit shutout ball nine strikeouts boone says they weren't disciplined against him the challenges with him really. Controlling the strike zone and we left it, we left it a handful of times on that breaking ball derp Lou void did it his thirteen th homer of the season but even he was seen limping as he made his way around the basis and into the dugout dealing with some sort of foot issue that he didn't really want to get into afterwards Yanks office he can't afford another song over the weekend to against the Medicine Wing Not a big deal whatever. But clearly something's bothering I'm right exactly and they did ask him about it afterwards and basically said I'm just dealing with getting some treatment. I'll be fine. And, he has been their best hitter. Stretch now. So then you really need him to stay out there dirt bag out. Yeah. Sure. He's a big enough guy even with the weight loss plus no reinforcements from the trade deadline Brian Cashman not able to get anything done yesterday so they will wait. For All these guys to come back from the I l. we do have a great team. We're at full capacity knowing that we're getting everybody back at some point you know That certainly you know exciting. What is Stanton? Coming back. Who the heck knows man come. No I'm serious. I mean, this is this is absurd over the weekend question I mean you never know what him as of last Friday I think it was still at least another week. So I know he was hitting he hit live late last week on the field with Lemay Hugh before Dj came back but I guess what Stanton it's more about the probably running the bases with hamstring. Just. Hit home runs and walk around the basis Kinda, like Gary Sanchez when he connects with one. So pretty much. So Chris Accurate of the Daily News wrote yesterday Giancarlo stains return is a long way off. You say a lot more than at least a week. Yeah. So He's not all. This is Aaron Boone he's not all the way kind of out of the woods yet as far as the injury, but he is running or thinking about seventy five percent. So. They figure it out because cashman goes on that. He did that fans zoom press conference last Friday leading into the subway series before the media knew anything and he ran down the list of guys and that's when we found out. Lemay was probably coming back over the weekend and week Labor he said, Torres? He was like Oh three to six weeks. Now they're telling you he's close. And at the time he said for Stanton, it's going to be at least another week. Now the he's GonNa be a while they can't. It seems like they can't make up their mind on the timelines with these guys. It's scary. It reminds you mind you the mets a few years ago in the US to get crushed does this stuff and it's exactly the same thing where guys are coming back too soon or you have issues with someone goes on the the I l. for what you think is going to be a short stint. It turns into months I mean it's just it's for two years in a row with a completely different training staff it's bizarre. Very and and it's getting it's getting tough to take I understand it happens and I'm not saying they're intentionally trying to mislead us or anything like that. But there does seem to be some inconsistencies is the way things have played out so we'll see what happens here going forward. They are now nineteen and fourteen that great start to the season is kind of starting to whittle away. Obviously, they had the three straight wins against the mets the rays have their number mentioned in as padres? World? Series. Now, I mean out of the dodgers are the best team in baseball but I mean the padres you never know on the as are pretty damn good this year as padres and where Texas is that word the new rags might be I think the sears they're saying, right Texas and Houston isn't that what they were saying about one report not I should say they're saying one report IRA by the way I'm seeing salad s and Y and a replay Sal Licata yeah we'll make it might help them really he looks like Casper the friendly ghost. Wow it's as if they put powder on his face, we'll wait really. He's at home well, in the summertime he's not gonNA make up himself why not. Because that's not what those guys are used to over there s, and well, he might. Have you put any makeup Amrita have have you really not today but yes, I have Wow. Now for the most part because of the way this summer has gone I've spent a lot of time outside. So I feel like everything's okay. But yeah, the from time to time I have sure now it's always to say what sal I mean. The guy is out looks like he has not seen the sun in nine months i. mean he's a long island Italian he needs to be outside this is what we do. In right now when I see him on, TV. Wow. Not a good look GV thrown any make on since you've been at home? No no I've seen with Jerry. Well Yeah I mean because I've been out in the sun if this was the winter time for sure I think I would probably in the beginning of this I but we weren't on TV for so long. That was another problem. So No, I. Don't have makeup I don't have. I was wondering how Jerry went about that I rated my wife's makeup kit. Really. Yes. You did you. So I asked for I asked her for help with the complexion found whatever the hell she gave me foundation whatever and yeah I use it and I've I've kept that that to my bag so I know exactly that didn't. Even. My bag like and there's nothing wrong with what I said. It just sounded weird. And you really you gotta yeah you gotTa. Check out it looks terrible. Looks that bad? Yeah it's that bad. Yes. All right. Do you think that you'll like? A good point to. Pale and then the lighting on top of it. He's like it's like the reflection it looks awful. We'll. He's probably got the shine on the Dome there. 'cause he part of it yeah. As part of this stage of his life makeup dog. He's gotTA check this out. GonNa Check Out S. Y. C.. Looks like here by the way I, love that you stayed off twitter for your entire vacation except for one reply tweet that related to to sell I know yeah. The way that was. So that that shows that you're monitoring, you may not tweet, but you are monitoring I did I did look occasionally just to see what was going on. No, it was Jimmy trainer of SL said I've got this one friend who swears he's not GonNa? Gamble and then he always comes back and gambles on sports again, and he screen shotted a text message and he tried to white out the name, but he did a terrible job of waiting it out you could. See Right. Through. Tony and it's funny because I, I knew who he was because I know those guys are close sal and Jimmy trainer and Sal I've heard him talk about this. It's like two thousand and five. He's had that same thing I'm. Not never been again. So. I, knew it was probably him and then I looked up and look right through his whiteout go. Pretty funny. Have you seen him yet on TV? They have yeah. He looks like Adam Silver. That's not a problem and just need A. Scary. I didn't even give that a thought. Pretty good. He looks like an old man is what he had he what is he thirty? Eight forty? He's over forty. He's forty forty one. Yeah. I'm thirty, eight I. Think he's three or four years older than me I think. So yeah, you're not a good one and in the Meuse House in the backwards just empty crate and barrel boxes bind them. I can we move that out of the shot? No. Going on, the Melissa's household. There's a lot to handle a half eaten apple on the table that too I didn't joke is actually a half eaten apple there. You know there really is. You I'm serious. There is there's like an apple core on the table next. I mean Adam silver when I see. All right. That's okay. Game Tonight Masahiro Tanaka and TVD or a depending on what you believe about the raise. If they know or they don't know they haven't announced yet pre game on the fan six, twenty, five mets marlins play their makeup game at Citi Field early to nothing lead Jacob degrom even that didn't work. Here's. And a little. Short. Here comes Diaz try to score the throw by the. Time. The marlins take the lead Gary Cohn an SNL. Softer hit balls of the sixth inning for Miami's they knocked to Graham around the Park four-run rally to go in front, they would finish off a five three victory Graham serving up a long home run to Gary. Cooper to opening and then a pita Lonzo error open the door for more a rare rough frame. The MINNIE's had a good feel for everything early on and like I said, you know Cooper there. Through a bad slider and then just wasn't able to execute. Him that's pretty much what it is. I love some of the background. Assume. Press conferences. I missed a couple of a couple things now I think I heard either cashman or boone. There was soft music playing the background at one point I mean why you know I think what happens is sometimes the reporters are still in the in the press box and they're running music on the speakers. Okay. So when they buzz in the background noise. A lot to combat here in these coronavirus times the era for Lonzo. Oh for fourth plates betting to thirteen gotta stay positive I'm just gonNA keep going out there and Klang hard is I can be a good teammate and. Just what I can. Go ahead. It's hard as I can. That's right. Denon Anna. four straight losses for Luiz Roses Club leading to this blunt admission. Talk. Especially, in the is you can almost feel like time is running out of you Hello. Score. winning. Score. That quote came from the quote that was like all over the place I'm said at to actually yeah man. And then the Mike cuts out on you just terrell. I'm not sure if that was that that may not have been on the TV that might have just been like the zoom presser but even so that is great timing I. Love that time is running out and then. I'm gone. Marlins are fifteen fifteen the mets fall to fifteen and twenty they're off to Baltimore two-game game set with the Orioles and before the game here was house on the upcoming rotation. So today today tonight t BA tomorrow t ba Thursday against the Yankees TB so they have nothing lined up. Anthony Tacoma put it the mets four options for at the time. He said tomorrow for Tonight's game would appear to be one bullpen game to Franklin Kill Omay Three Ariel Dorado I have no idea where that is or four trade acquisition, which we know did not come to fruition did not up any starters so I guess whole. Later and find out who the heck they're. GonNa Pitch Tonight in Baltimore Brody did make three moves yesterday todd frazier catch a Robinson Torino's and reliever McGill Castro's he tries to jump start his club. We wanted to give our team some some additional help and we're not playing great baseball right now and we need to we need to boost boost ourselves. Need to boost ourselves with three below average players. So that's what we've done have added to the slop with more slop and we're looking for a boost boost. We brought in for a boost todd todd boost US please. As far as frazier goes says, he likes the Versatility Third Base First Base D. H. Righty Bat. But also those intangibles we WanNa Talk Fraser's energy to come in and bring some life. You know be a guy that can come in and remind people what what having fun is all about. winning. That's what's fun. Couple, week and a half man you need todd frazier to tell you. Is All about. Give Up, retire two weeks ago there in Miami Michael Conforto they're beating the marlins three in a row. Yeah. The Fourtou bite or having a good time down here. Everything's going well, and it's all coming apart since then obviously they had a chance though you know they had a chance on, they win the two games. Friday and they were about to make three out of four and that's where everything completely changed. Yes, it has. MLB trade deadline elsewhere, we mentioned the padres just ridiculously active I. Think they made six different trades the big one yesterday they get my cleven jer from Cleveland Nine player swap overall, and then also shut out the rockies yesterday six to nothing for an end Atif junior two run triple will myers homer as they just continue to roll I saw Jerry, you tweeted out the play. So the ROCKIES lose the game now on our. Way, in Colorado, it's unfortunate that happens with Mike Trout with the angels this guy is just a wizard defensively and he made another ridiculous play yesterday albeit in a losing effort so that out I think be dot com twitter account wasting away rocky fans love him. Yeah Yeah there was a lot of great players in the history of baseball that never were on great teams that sucks for them. Right it does and you know what? Richard beyond their wildest dreams they're fine. They're just one of those teams that to just always kind of mediocre right they had that read the was the year they played the. Two thousand seven million new he'd been to the playoffs a handful of time since I know what are you going to do but he's a great player and I feel like we don't get to see him enough here on the East Coast unless you're a late night owl. Quickly because I know we're running late again, NBA Thunder forcing game seven with the rockets. Thanks to another big time performance from Chris Paul jock seven.

Thank you one year seven and a half mil as they needed a boost to their secondary and they get it with the New Jersey native in the rutgers alums so good for the giants hopefully that works out for them each the morning show with boomer, Esiason and Greg Nadi, boomer and Geo on Fast Karaoke songs of all time as we start our eight o'clock hour boomer and Geo on the fan and CBS Sports Network I. Know We've talked about this a little bit. You guys have touched on it in the warm up show but someone's got explained to me how. Basketball. Cards and some baseball cards as well. Especially Mike Trout Carp but mostly like these basketball cards of stars are worth millions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of dollars out of nowhere. This was not something that was happening few months ago a year ago, and now it is burst to the point where a Yana. Santa Kumho Rookie Card with his signature on it could crack two million dollars at auction Yusuke Dandridge cards be million dollars I don't understand I think it's the rarity of the card. And that's pretty the trout. One someone called us on Friday or Thursday or maybe on twitter I forget where it was but they said the trout one that was worth so much money. Literally, there was one there was one made and that was this I didn't understand it either and now you find out that there's only one made. Okay. Well, that makes sense. It's as rare as they come and then I do have someone at my cornhole league. That's a card collector that is told me they are very close to acquiring Dr, FAO CI, Card for Al.. which is also become very difficult to come across for whatever reason. But yeah, I think it's just a matter. You know it's why the cards from the eighties and nineties are worth nothing because they mass produce them because our generation really got into it and why you know the cards from the thirties and forties or so much money in fifties because they're around. In good shape for that matter. All right. Now, I am not knocking anybody who wants to be involved in this because if you like it and you want to have it, go for it. That's great. My question is. All right it's rare. So that answers one part, right what makes it so special I don't know I don't collect cards anymore. Don't like is it is it like so you're telling me like it's like the best made car. One. One of anything that has any sort of value would think it's worth something I don't Know Yeah I. Tell You I mean if we're talking to the million dollars if the Beatles made one record with seven unique songs on it. Court. A lot of money. Don't you think sure but I don't think you can compare the most recognizable and successful rock band in history to whoever makes us card even know who makes us coral I don't I I'm not into it I have no idea. If you think of memorabilia. Isn't that what you would call it at this point. Yeah, I. Mean Listen I could understand game warn stuff whatever maybe because the signature is on it, I don't know but the fact that it's just I mean it's just a card that's what I I mean listen I have baseball cards I, do I still have them for a kid. I, and I enjoy having them I. Enjoy Looking back on them from time to time and that's great. But what I don't understand is how it gets up to millions of dollars. So that's what I'm going to pay for it. I. Mean that really isn't that like anything if you can find someone willing to pay. Yeah I guess I don't know it's confusing to me now. It also seems like an investment that is probably not a great one because this seems to me to be the highest value of these cards like is it going to go up and up and up from here or is this just going to be another phase that eventually dies out in the things not going to be worth anything out I don't know I really don't know because I don't. I don't get the whole value of the cards when there's you know I don't WanNa say mass-produce. But when they become a collector's item, I'm not sure I. Think for me I, it's funny I'm trying to look now. So I have. I've in nineteen sixty three Henry Aaron card. Okay. That I that I bought for like ninety bucks. When I was sixteen years old I'm trying to see what that's worth now. I mean, even it's not. A five hundred bucks. Okay. Well, that's pretty good. That's better than I thought. Now would you sell it? I probably would. Probably would. Not Do it for right. It's not like one of those things where. You know we had some sort of real sentimental value or in Stahl Joe no I came across it in a card store and I thought it was really cool. I actually had the money on me because I was working already at that time. And so I bought it because it was Henry Aaron why the hell not. So I've been listen this might this is on Ebay. So maybe that's not really worth what I think it might be but yeah, I mean that Tha, it's neat having it. But. That's about it. You know. I'm not a big collector. So I know there's people that are you know? The the guy who cuts my hair is his family's got two brothers and him, and they're into this. They're totally into it and like I see them on their instagram and they post this and they start. By other ones and I you know it's great. If you're into it, I mean it's something to do especially now and there's not as much to do. Because of what we've all been dealing with in staying at home I just sure I dunno, it just fascinates me that because for years and years and years. Card collecting was done like there was nothing was worth anything I mean I remember as a kid I. Loved it. I would go into the card shops I buy packs of cards I'd buy sleeves of cards I would I would be totally into it actually think I still have like Open packs from the ninety right the it's in my childhood bedroom somewhere price lead the gum to yeah like I had that it was into it. I was like you know we should hang onto this whatever but. I don't know it was it was fun when I was a kid it's just amazing to me that there's people out there. That have millions of dollars for an interest though people collect rocks. But these people like I was. Yeah I guess I. I'm tr- try and it's it's not I know it's not as I'm trying to say I'm not knocking. The interest in it, the things confusing to me is the value of it. That's fair. That's what I can't wrap my mind around like there's people that love to do a bunch of stuff that doesn't when they get to the height of it doesn't cost them two million dollars. or a million dollars like if I told you that someone had a Babe Ruth Card from one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty, three, i. Understand that right right I would totally understand that. That to me makes sense you know a Jaanus, Anthony Kuhn Poe, rookie card with his signature on it. Even. If there's one of them like who made it? Like if you telling me that this thing was was crafted by Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain before he passed away. With with their teeth or something like that would be like, okay. Maybe I get it but I don't made this thing. What does it made out of? It's a it's a cord. So that's why is it so expensive but hey, it's a thing right now. The guy that we mentioned you many times this guy. Gary V Maggie have on all the time I love the Guy He's been big into the cards for the last probably the last year or so and he's been investing in the cards and you know he's been into it. So I don I don't know again I'm not in that world I don't do it. I don't understand it but. If you do yeah. Yeah. No I mean listen I get it but I get having hobbies actually wish I had more hobbies I. Don't have enough. But. You also have a very time consuming hobby with the boat I mean honestly. In the summer, you are consumed with that. So I don't know what else you ask for right but there's a lot of months. The boats out of the boat will come out of the water. Let's say it definitely it will maybe be in early November. Okay. It'll be out. December January. Yeah. February March I mean that's you know it'll be back in April I won't use it that much maybe. Maybe it'll be able back in May I. Don't use it that much because not enough nice day he's got. To smoke in Weeden gambling. I wish. You don't have to witch. No I don't have that I don't you know if I will admit if I could go to like A. Marijuana dispensary I would probably get edibles from time to time I, would probably do that. I'll admit that much. But the smoking of the weed is not something that I see. I got asthma I can't do that. No, you're out. And like I'm. Not, GONNA TRUST SOMEBODY Like I needed regulated like that's one of those things says, I'm I hear so many horror stories of things being laced in the streets these days I don't need any of that stuff. Now there are states where there are we shops. Yeah. That's what I'm saying like if I could go down the block com has them, right? Yeah. If I could go down the block get A. Pack of We'd gummy bears and I was feeling stressed or anxious and I ate a couple of those and chilled out I'd be into that Bob told, yes. Don't me on his head said he's going to Colorado this year. But smoking stuff not I can't do it. especially I don't know what every it's just not. Stuff getting your lungs and everything else. Yeah. You're not a smoker I. got it. But cookies like there was a pack of cookies. We'd Cook Brownies and yeah, I mean and it was and I could go into the shop and I knew that it was like I could like Nestle made it. Yeah. I would totally trust it but like this street thing anymore I, don't know that's not something because you I mean you hear these insane stories days. Of everything being laced with stop that could kill you know that's Eddie's big concerned too because he said if he did it, he would have. Hallucinations I. Believe and then if you throw in whatever they could lace them with God knows where he'd end up. Like that very rarely do I have an issue fallen asleep I've told you about this before I could I could lay in the middle of a highway in fall asleep if I needed to. But there are times where occasionally I'll have a tough time on sleep and then I'd use the CD oil data and then it'll knock me right out. So that's why I think like. If, you've safely consumed A. We'd bear every now and again if it was regulated, I'd be into it. With. The way I mean New York with the deficit that they have in the money that they've just been. Losing at an insane clip. The, and they still don't have gambling on your phone. You kill still don't have sports betting in New York Mobile. Sports Bang and they're not anywhere near the legal marijuana at this point I mean they've decriminalized a lot of it but. A what are you doing talked about this before? That's how you fill the gap man people want sports gambling would be a huge boom for the state no question. Me Just asked New Jersey and all the other stone it. What the Hell you're waiting for right now I know they have it at a couple upstate casinos but I mean who the hell's drive enough to turning stone casino was living around where we live to go to a sportsbook. Nobody. You want it on your phone, and then here here comes another football season. where I could have sworn by this year, it would be in New York and legal in New York another football season. But know what we'll do is instead of giving people something that they want and they would spend money on in entertainment way. The let's. Do the congestion pricing have you ever actually? Well Yeah, and I think there's a new gas tax coming to New Jersey to have you ever actually thought about you do fan duel I do better mgm like on a Sunday morning week one, NFL next Sunday. Have you ever actually thought about how much money will get wagered? Let's say between the hours of eleven am and one PM. It's talking about across the country. Yeah. It's specifically and yeah. I mean, yeah. Yeah. Sure. Across the country within the one sport within the NFL. It is nuts how much money they bring in. I know. Of course I mean that's why I hope that the season continues because. You know it's it's a hell of a lot of fun. I mean it really is I mean the knock apple last year I had so much with that nocco pool last year. The only reason I'm not doing season-long fantasy is because just the it's just it's GonNa be too. Too hard to predict things too much waiver wire stuff and guys going out and I. Just I WANNA be able to have the daily fantasy be able to do that. But everything else I'm in on. Hundred Percent I. Love It. It's great. Keeps you interested in every game I mean I know you watch the game differently but I mean you know and I've got the jets and giants than my own team to watch all the fantasy stuff man I can't wait. I really, it's to be bizarre. That's you know baseball fans we've gotten used to football. No fans is going to be interesting to watch but. I don't think it's not that big a deal. I. Think if they have the the crowd track underneath this is for TV anyway. A little bit of the College football game on Saturday again, tight shot on the field. Yeah. It looks like you just watching a football game and as long as you hear something that is at least representative of crowd noise I don't think it's going to bother you nearly as much as a viewer and I get what it feels like on the field is a completely different situation and if you're a report at the game. Completely different but I think for the viewer on television I don't think it'll be as stark difference as we get. Might I really don't other still stadiums and states I mean looked the last couple of weeks but that are insisting that fans will be there week one I mean the dolphins say thirteen thousand, I believe I believe the Patriots are twelve, thousand I read Notre. Dame is going to put students in and I think. I WANNA. Say Notre Dame was doing twelve or thirteen thousand as well or maybe eight to tie forget what the number is that might actually look worse this could look like nobody's really nobody went for sure but yeah, it'll be it'll be interesting to see I just wanted to continue and I I haven't seen a number for the cowboys but Jerry Jones continues to say you're GONNA put fans there I don't know what the number is but he's saying Cowboy State at and T. Stadium on offense to You just can't have anything in football that's happened in baseball because there's no such thing as doubleheaders in football that you can play you know three-quarter doubleheaders snow. The contingency plan if they have to pause the season for a couple of weeks to reset sure they do the flexibility to push back the Super Bowl and everything they do. But also you got a couple of teams without outbreaks. I mean who the hell knows I mean you're going to need how many weeks are going to take I don't know, and then if that happens twice then what tap and twice in baseball. Right it happened once with the marlins and happened again with the cardinals weeks later. So. If you've got one built in. Pause have to. So I just really really hope everybody's diligent and watching hard knocks. It looks like they are but that's just two of the teams with cameras on them all the time who the hell knows. It's the morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg Saudi boomer and Geo I. Just I Evan Roberts re tweet something from a Philadelphia Sports Talk Station that had buster only on of ESPN has been covering baseball for a lifetime right and they asked him about the odds of re-signing jt Real Muto and he said that I think it's going to be tough paraphrasing. But I think it's GonNa be tough. What Steve Cohen by the mets because there's thought out there that whatever the phillies offer the mets will wait to see their final offer and then outbid them. And that right. There is exactly the type stuff that we have not heard from the mets in a very long time. Now, as we've said, ow bidding on high priced free agents isn't always the solution but for the mets and that position where they have had so many struggles at after having two great ones in their history they've had a real a three two and a half great ones. You WanNa Throw Todd Hundley in there as well. But they've had many many problems with that position for number of years having jt Real Muto there and overpaying for him. It's something we'd all signed for with Steve. Cohen being the owner so that's The direct opposite of the stuff we've heard for a number of years with the mets and the Wilpon. So that's a great thing to to experience quite honestly when you read that your owner, your new owner of everything goes right is going to do whatever it takes to get the player that he wants. It's a it's a new feeling. All right CEELO is back with his update what's going on Chris I'm getting sick and tired of the race Yankees just cannot sell Tampa, Bay they went again last night at the stadium now, the two two and it's a chopper back to the mound castille turns fires. Got Him ballgame over Tampa wins. So the race really continue their mastery over the Yanks won seven out of eight John Sterling with the details here on the fan of five three final in the Bronx, last night early home runs for man Choi and Kevin Cure Meyer Against Garrett Cole took his second straight loss three straight starts. Now in which he's allowed, multiple home runs, it's twelve total across forty six innings of the season. His manager Aaron Boone says, he'll be just fine line hasn't been great but I feel like the improvement as far as the ease of his stuff and the delivery. Is Very close to where it needs to be. The problem is hitters are all over some of his pitches countering his aggressiveness with their own aggressiveness to the point where cold starting to think some of them actually know what's coming. He was asked maybe he's from tipping his pitches he admitted he thinks all pitchers tip at some point in any given start. I. Mean James How many pitches a game I don't know. Maybe somebody may you know the other team has an edge four, five, six, seven pitches some days it might be more not going pin it all on that though. Some hitters look for some hitters. Don't I mean There's I. Think the point is there's there's there's several different factors that are contributing to certainty with which guys are getting their swings off in certain counts and so we're we're I'm looking to address that he's trying to figure all this out on the fly here. It goes back to the drawing board for his next start, which is scheduled for Saturday in Baltimore. Now, his counterpart Tyler glass now has put together three straight quality. Starts including two against the Yankees last night six innings of to hit ball nine strikeouts for the victories. The anger of the raise rather go up four and a half games on the Yanks. Now atop the three on the law side, no editions, the bombers, the trade deadline not for lack of trying though says, GM Brian Cashman I'm very comfortable not doing what we what we were asked to, what was being asked of us But you gotta go through the motions and they had talks right up until the final couple of minutes. Ultimately, the prices were just too high. It's not going to take a rocket scientist to to dissect in. Armenia. So very good. They'll be able to figure out probably get exactly what the asks were here there and everywhere, and you had the report that the. Rangers and the Indians with Lance Lynn and Mike Clemenger were asking for two of the combination of Clint Frazier Davey Garcia and Clark. Schmidt. So that is the report that was out there whether or not. That's factual. I couldn't tell you interesting to me that Cashman said our media will figure it out and then a couple of hours later you had names. Names to that. So interesting, you try to figure out piece together where the sources might be who's telling the truth who's not bottom line is they're moving forward with what they have, and they'll wait to get all these guys back from the I L. Cashman. They'll wasn't counting on that as a reason not to make a deal I didn't stand down because we're waiting on these guys in the wings if. We found the proper matches we would you go to ownership and execute didn't execute anything that didn't include anything. It was a quiet afternoon, and now they move forward nineteen and fourteen Masahiro Tanaka against tvd on the mound. Tonight for the rays free game on the fan will begin at six, twenty, five mets and Marlins made up their game at Citi Field Jacob degrom done in my a rough sixth-inning one to Kevin. How far? The other way that's a face of that loss. The second he's got an RBI double Adam marlins will put up a four start against the in the sixth. It's now four to two Miami Gary Cohen s wide started with a long solo homer from Garrett Cooper and Pete Alonzo era did not help as Miami went on to beat the mets five three, four straight losses now for the company. This is. Probably, the best pitcher in in the game. during just not not to get a W. Today if we stop that one's on me. Thank you. Did. and. Here was to grandma's well after the game. We've been in every game. So today you if I pick us up there in that sixth-inning and then You know those those tough. We let get away a Yankee Stadium. You know we got a chance. I lost of the season for two grams. The mets fall to fifteen and twenty off to Baltimore for a quick to game set with the seven to lead the less than the other day. Yeah. It is hard. It really is hard to believe that they gave up that lead the and not only that. I. I completely forgot that they gave the six run lead against the braves earlier in the year on that we it was a Friday or Saturday night. is in their bullpens that they could put Lugo in the rotation. That's what we roll. Awesome. They made that move. Necessity more than anything else I mean for crying out loud you break. said that though and said, Oh yeah we're good here because we the guys in the bullpen are coming around. So you know we have we have the depth to, but seth in the rotation. And then of course, his first two times out and you could make the case you know you would like to see him stay in there a little bit longer I know Jerry agreed with getting an out of their against the Yankees the other day not so much as first time out last week So they've got some issues obviously and they don't really know who's going to be starting these games for them here over the course of the next couple of days or if. They do they haven't announced it yet, and they've got that make up with the Yankees Thursday at city field. So couple of you know, maybe a rough couple of days ahead here for them Brodie van wagon giving up hope just yet three moves yesterday bringing back Todd Frazier they also pick up Robinson Torino's from Texas Reliever McGill Castro that was from the Marlins. Yes there I can't. There's so many there's a Miguel row house on the MARLINS. Castro's from the Marlins as well. Yes. Baltimore no more. Miguel Castro from Baltimore. There you go my apologies. That's why that's right. They're playing Baltimore tonight and they played Miami yesterday. I knew it was one of the teams they were facing this week. So got confused there. Anyway here's the thought process behind the frazier reunion from brody peaking come in he can get a big hit. He can face tough left handed pitcher he can hit a home run. You can start a game at third base he can start a game at first base and you can. Be a lot of things which makes you wonder why they let them go to begin with in the first place and apparently he can rally the clubhouse as well. Here's brody in general on adding both frazier and Torino's to the roster for bringing in two right handed bats guys that have had success against right handers in the past, which I think is something that that we wanted to balance club out with right now of course, joining us isn't much of a hitter more of a one fifty. Exactly. So that's what the mets decide to do. We'll see how it plays out for that moving forward we'll see about the status of JD. Davis you wonder if the frazier move is connected to that as well and also with the game yesterday. So the Marlins Trade Jonathan of VR during the game right I'm sure you guys were on this fascinating as Gary was talking about why they believe they did it that they've got this kid who opted out of the season now wants to opt back in and he's going to be their second baseman so they shipped. VR. Mid Game. So you see a letter really crazy stuff to the blue jays in buffalo for their home. You can't do that in the NFL right once you're out, you're out pretty sure correct. If you opt out in the NFL, you're out for the season yes. So I mean. So it's not like a guy can wait around things are going great in the NFL and all of a sudden Waa GonNa, come back week eight kids gonNA come back to Marlins or in the middle of a playoff run. Yeah and he's going to jump right in I. Guess. Maybe. That's why he wants back in. Didn't expect that they'd be competitive now here they are. That are maybe he sees you know what? As we've said while there have been a couple of outbreaks for sure I think by and large at least for me the season's gone better than I expected. Maybe he was one that was nervous and he sees you know what it's. Ok and now he's ready to play who knows I mean Nick Marquette's did the same thing Yep said, what am I sitting back and watching this for he got spooked by Freddie Free? No doubt wants Freeman came back kind of team didn't change his mind a little bit the padres with the big move as far as the deadline went yesterday, they get my eleven year. From. Cleveland player swap with the Indians, padres very active I believe six trades and total, and then they went out and shut out the rockies at coors field six to nothing NBA Thunder Force game seven with the rockets other big performance from Chris Paul as he was clutch late fifteen points. In the fourth quarter he was three of three from three point range no turnovers. While Russell Westbrook and James Harden struggled down the stretch for Houston one, four, one, hundred, the final Paul with eight of his team's final twelve points he at twenty eight in all as okay. See Forces the game seven earlier in the night. Jimmy Butler took over late sending the heat past the bucks Middleton on Butler and on his hip butlers stops him up jabs right side. Clock Down to twelve on the right side opens up pulls up for the jump shot. Got To go. Jimmy Butler thirty six. Now for Jimmy Butler Mike Goodness English heat radio in the he'd with a full week off take game one from Milwaukee one, fifteen, one, hundred, four, Butler finished with playoff career high forty points. He was six of six in the final six minutes of this game Milwaukee losing a game in which they shot forty six percent from three point range the difference for them came at the. Free throw line where they were just fourteen of twenty six janas had a couple of big MRS late in that game. Now, back to Saturday, the bucks finish off the magic in game five George Hill was not seen on the court for the national anthem after being very outspoken about what's gone on in Wisconsin the last few weeks, and the fact that they never should have gone into the Orlando bubble to begin with. So an obvious line of questioning for the media when he met them after the game. Wondering if there's a specific reason, you weren't out in the arena during the national anthem. Honest Truth Yup. Okay I take it. Every time before the game Tom I've been doing it for. The last four years If you go back and watch any footage of our previous games before we come his mobile. that's what I do before every game and no. So happy that you guys were snoozing always called me coming back from pre game ritual and that's what I always do not as truth. Thank George. For that. Definitely not the answer they were expecting. That's for sure based on what had gone on a couple of days prior. Ritual pre ritual. Goes to the bathroom every time during the national right for the game I mean that is. Regularity was about to say I mean think about that body clock for crying out loud every time before the game it's not play every night either. I wonder on if the off days, it's the same time right or whatever. Games during different times I, would add a bunch of follow ups to that and they just laughed at what to do it. I would have had so many follow ups. Yeah. Right. What happens we're talking before the game as a matter what time it is like when you're at home or on the road, let's say you're used to like seven ten tips or whatever. Like are you going seven ten on an off day? What's what's the deal? Are you eating the same thing leading up to the game right? Guy These are all the things I need would need to know boomer would have been all over the metamucil. That's. Certainly. He'll probably be all over the islanders tonight as they play game five against the flyers in Toronto aisles going for the clothes out seven o'clock at least last I checked you never know what these NHL Schedules one series ends. They seem to shift the TV schedule all the time lightning did eliminate the Bruins in game five last night they won in double overtime. Three. Two two Victor Hedman with the game winner for Tampa. Bay. They will now await the winner of the aisles and the flyers in the Eastern Conference finals. The avalanche put up five in the first period than held off the stars six three to force a game six in that series in Edmonton. Some NFL things we haven't touched on so far. One thing we. Did mentioned last hour Logan Ryan's at the giants one year seven and a half million. They get some much needed help for their secondary although he's kind of one of these roving is he's not GonNa just lineup as a corner. He's GonNa play a little safety, a little nickel corner I know his age and was trying to get the the narrative out there. About that on the free agent market this off season Hayes not just a corner anymore he can kinda serve in a lot of different roles. So I. Don't know who's GONNA start opposite, Bradbury at the other corner position but they needed some some bodies especially after the rookies Xavier mckinney got hurt and he's going to miss significant time Ryan to the giants. De'andre Baker court date was pushed to January. Yeah. So it was a initially September fifteen right now it's all the way in January twenty one. So lawsuits that have been filed against him now right and civil suit hundred thousand dollars civil suit. Yes. So there is you know September fifteenth. He maybe at a if things one is way. Now being on the exempt list January twenty, twenty, one the out for the year. That's just the way it is. Did you see the NFL basically informed the Washington football team. They were to take over the investigation on the urging of numerous people and then Dan Snyder after the fact released statements saying it was his idea to tell the NFL to take over the investigation. So you wonder about the time line there but that is what's going on with that situation. I had some bill, check you but I should probably say that for next hour because we're up against the other NFL thing from yesterday is Alvin. Kamara. Now, all of a sudden is holding out from Saints Camp after he had said early on after he reported like I'm not going to worry about my contract it'll happen when it's going to happen it'll be time we'll be right when it's right and now all of a sudden he's missing practices which. They're unexcused absences. So not sure exactly what's going on with that situation something to keep an eye on and the chiefs just continue to just hand out money all the players they resign. Also yesterday agreeing to contract extensions through twenty twenty, five Andy Reid as well as general manager. Bread beach and they've pretty much got the whole band back together for their run at defending their super bowl title the morning show with boomer Asya sit in Gregg giannotti Boomerang Geo. Boring gl on CBS SPORTS RADIO DOT COM Jerry in for a boomer this week I did text quickly with a KFC Barstool kept relearning. And he doesn't, he doesn't want everybody to know exactly what he's making, but he believes that if you're diligent with it. Where you keep up with it, you promote it. You can do well and you honor every request that that number that you threw out there attainable is attainable obsessed say now he's not saying whether he wouldn't tell me over under that type of thing. Means he's killing it I. Don't know I'm not sure. I'm onto you know no no I don't know I. Don't know if he is. But but he also said that he is not here's the other thing he is not as diligent with it as he should be. I I would think most people in the beginning are, and then it kind of trails off unless it's a nice steady stream where you really feel again that sounded weird unless it's a good steady. Revenue Stream. Where you feel like you are making the time every day to do it sure right exactly. But if it's one here one there, I could see you lapsing on it and forgetting in three days later I'll dammit there's four missed and then I'm sure and I don't know this I would think everything today in today's Day and age raining it's a yelp review. It's something I'm sure there are ratings on this to you missed there is right I could see people saying this guy is a tool this guy's in jacket. Don't pay really I could see that. Oh, well, people are generally so nice. To. US. I'm surprised that you would think there would be so nasty. What would you have done this situation real. Call Real quick. So I was telling out last week warm-up show five to six Monday through Friday except this week because he's on vacation and I'm lazy wasn't interest they will and say it was an we'd do in the show. It's enough. So. We went to dinner last week with friends and we had one of the worst experiences where the poor waiter got everything wrong I mean everything wrong got are or there were six of us and he brought four meals forgot to the then came out with their from another table that warrant ours. Then we reward those to the one came out. It was some semblance of what my wife Board but it wasn't, and then the one was supposed to hold the mayonnaise and and the and the lettuce, and it came out with mayonnaise and lettuce, and that had to go back again then order wings my son to go and the wings came out and luckily I looked I opened the thing in Buffalo. Ranch Buffalo Sauce or whatever the hell it was know was spilled all over the wings they had to go back. It went from screw this guy he's not getting a tip to I. Feel so bad for him I think we gave him double. What are you doing situation like that offer me. Part of his fault but was the kitchens fall. Yeah but I need to know the process you got to communicate to the kitchen. Right? Is he communicating properly the kitchen? They're not hearing it or is he showing up things going on the computer into the kitchen? That's tough because I, I'm not this is not one of those Let me get a pat on the back thing but I, I tend to tip a lot at restaurants especially lately even on pickup orders I'm wondering that because of the crap that they through and there's a lot of these places that are seasonal and I know that there's money that has to be made up and I really enjoy going these places. So I'd like to support him. So generally on the guy that gives people breaks and and does that, but if I'm going out and my experience is being ruined in that manner. I'm not saying you don't leave a tip. I mean, you leave a tip of the guys working hard and there's just honest mistakes but somebody's got no oh no, I do like, Oh, the manager came over and apologized and it was after that and then the kid was struggling so bad we we actually gave a double dip. We really felt bad for him like we weren't sure GONNA lose his job that night well, if he's having a bad night like that and he's honestly trying hard then yeah you you tip them normally but someone's gotTa know like for example, there is a restaurant that I frequent and we got a takeout order and they completely Left off one of the meals and the takeout now. This place I go to all the time. So I trust the fat I didn't look to see if it was a took the bag and went home right and it wasn't there. Now I didn't go back I didn't complain action and left a nice tip when I left the place at know that the order was missing but whatever I've gone back since but I know one of the guys that. Is Higher up there at the place and I made sure he knew not as a complaint just like listen I. Think you got a new person named on the phones. This happened don't worry about it, but I think that's that's the route you gotta go. Don't crush the people that are working there if they're trying hard if they're totally checked out there like on their phone paying attention. Not the case at all but if they're trying hard and there's just things are not going their way, you give them a pass but somebody has the know because then someone else lose their job, the restaurant can go on there because nobody's going there because word of mouth spreads this places a disaster stuff like that. So you gotTa let the manager know or somebody the owner no, Hey, listen just you gotta get this this crap cleaned up. The APP. So then we had a little properly I think so I think. It's this guy called a couple of days ago. It might have been even yesterday because my. Couple of days ago was Sunday and we went on the air so it was yesterday and. We didn't get a chance to get to him. So we're GONNA get to him today as Gary in East rockaway Gary Good morning what's going on. How you doing jail how you doing great Gary what's up? Well. I wrote a song for May baseball season last year and I just perfected. It happened this year with all the covert and stuff I got a great song and I think everybody's GonNa love it. Because everybody's doing hitting walk off home runs. Okay now, do you want to perform this song on the air for us or would you like to send us the song because it's been recorded and then we play it is this something you want us to play on the air I needed out there. I haven't copyrighted already and everybody loves it and I think it's time for the world to you. It's time for the world here. Okay. So how would you like us to hear it? You're going to do a live performance I gotTa Guitar on my hand right now. Can you hear that? Yeah, we can. We can hear Gary go for I want to Singapore sing it for you. I know you're a great mets fan I started out as a mets on but now it's GonNa be a baseball song because MLB. So Gary here's the one thing I'll ask all right because I can you we just give us one minute of it that okay. Can you just give us a guy? All right I'll do the first verse and the Chorus and that's the key. All right perfect go for. Kerry you got it. Thank you go. The bottom. Game Style. Team needs to win. The pressure is only in the crowd. Here we go again got away with this time. No extra now that vs shame. Mogi mean. Even Fun can rings game. Put the on the ball domino long due to walk off. The Helmet Andy and I don't even care due to walk. The judgy off the back. To the. Hey, it's all. The. Way, to walk. Off. Off. All right Gary you need you don't carry cough in there. Yeah may maybe at the maybe needed back around a singer as what Jerry is saying, they give you a little when you are when you. Do the walk off, and then there's just like music you need someone in the back on going to the walk off. Definitely. This is basically a rough demo of it right now. Because I think we gotta get this out there 'cause I. Gary. I'll give you this much I mean it's not it's not something that is different. I can definitely say that it's it's catchy but in a catchy way that if something that I've heard before I, liked it but I but I do like it and you know I don't know if you're going to be making millions of dollars on this song, I don't know if someone's going to hear it and say like you know you gotTa Make Gary a star it's not bad. I'll tell you that much. Definitely. The one. The also thing I would say Gary you gotTA. Very Thick New York accent you know and when you say when you say off due to walk off, you know. If, you want this thing right. If you want this thing to go national and you want the world to hear you might have to you know it might not translate the people that are in the Midwest and the West Coast. So maybe just trying to change data little bit but oh Gary I gotta tell you it's not it's not bad. It's catchy man it's fun it is. It's fun. It's. Like that. Let everybody see it or something? Yeah. Do that man I'm telling you do that. WanNa, get it hard because I think that it's going to be catchy I think everybody would want to do it. You know it's due to walk off and everybody's doing it this year it seems like more than ever. You know listen Gary I I think that I you've you've put your time and talent to good use I would. I would not get your hopes off of this thing being either. Studio record it and see how many downloading it. Yeah, that's what I got to get a final recording of it. Now now, the other thing you need to do by the way is you have to get this over the MLB network because I wanna do I was talking to I. Don't know how to do that. Well. We do. I think there's one guy in over there. So what you do if you get RID MLB DOT COM But I could see them like using this in a fun way. Like. Yeah like in a in a fun way, I could see them. Now, you need to record a video of yourself doing this as well. Gary I think Dow would be right. So you're GONNA have to hire a my next step yeah. Yeah. You would do that and I I honestly think that they could see this what this guy's a huge baseball fan and they love that they love seeing passionate baseball fans who wrote this song and then they could use it in a highlight package for a couple of walk-offs it happened in in in a night or two. So yes yes definitely that would happen very easily to. All right Gary. Gary. For the mets song you know keeps good stay late due to walk off. You know 'cause he stay ladle. Gary. And all the writers and all the broadcasters don't like to stay it's. The one who doesn't mean he's he's the one that doesn't hold back and he says it all right Gary Lockwood that man good luck. Steps should I take you think geo-? Let's see here. I'm going to put you on hold as one guy I'm gonNA. Die I know over an MLB network. All right and then when you get the video or you get the recording of it, you send it over to them and see what happens. Okay. Thank. Sean put you have a great day, Buddy Youtube Gary all right that's scary and he's Rocco with his walk off so I'm being honest. Bad. It's it's you know it's sort of like a guy singing brown eyed girl outdoors at a restaurant on the water. That's what it reminded me of right. and. It wasn't terrible. He's is thick new. York accent is something like that like if he's singing these singing it. And like the for padres fan or an angels fan or a twins fan you know dude walk off probably. Wouldn't work. WOULD WORK IN HOUSTON But all kidding aside like. It's it's in that in-between where it's like it's not bad to make fun of right. It's not like so good that you're blown away. It's sort of like in that in between it's okay but I could I could definitely see. MLB Network. Having Fun with that being a viewer submission of a guy who loves baseball so much he wrote the song for us and we're GONNA play it a couple of times during the highlights. Seen the reunion of the JALAPENO dream. Gary is the the songwriter and you guys do the performance. I saw the drummer apology new dream on talking about I. saw him there you go to fourths of the dreamer back. At the other to band together and the third member lives locally the fourth guy though I don't know where he is you don't need them. You got three of 'em three's good now but he was a key factor in the whole thing was like trying to get the Beatles back together is still alive and John, Lennon not being around. It wouldn't work in other words Julian. All right. So don't hang up on Gary Leagues. I'm GonNa there's a name that I got a fine I don't even know if I have is email anymore I think I do quickly carmine West Babylon, what's going on carmine Hey. Guys Good Morning Hey Jerry. That later you know get another channel when it came time to bring out the meal, he blew the big chance. Every. It, was not it went back. Although if he keeps pitching the way, he might be waiting tables. Oh Man I was good yesterday. that a dollar dollar though, right? Exactly. It was good in that tidy five, three loss. Miami Marlins. No I know just just perfect morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg Saudi boomer and Geo. All right boomer and Geo on the fan CBS. Four hour saw a couple of tweets that. Walk off? Song is so catchy David singing could last five minutes after Gary in east rockaway. debuted on the show I think he's got to actually thought it was pretty good. Walk off I need help. But yeah those good. Do the walk off. Chris. Did you hear it I did? I agree with G it was it was okay with solid but nothing to write home about the very thick New York accent for sure you know it's cute. Harry gave you the finger now I think given the faith. Cute. It's typical of what? Our listeners call in with songs and things that they've written. It's it's cute. It's catchy but I I if I were. MLB network I don't know that I'd be racing to err that no offense I. Think they'd have some fun you gotta understand they wouldn't do it in the way that like, wow, this is so great. That we have to put it on the air it would sort of be like this is kind of fun and Goofy, and this guy seems like he put a lot into this let's just have a little fun with it. It wouldn't be like Oh man this is the greatest song of all time. Right deserves a grammy. It's sort of like this is kind of goofy. Let's have some fun with it. Late night highlights show studio version backup singers like you said, you know you Kinda fancied a little bit might sound a little better than just him. Also put cell phone. Yeah. I mean if he slapped together some sort of music video, right? Some goofy music video of him in his house. That would be funny and you intersperse like the highlights with Gary and he's rockaway singing the song is guitar. Fliegelman. Makes a good point. Have a little walk off dance. Oh. Yeah. Like get people in his family or as friends, and then do the the walk off whatever it is. You do the walk off. That's true because then everybody can do that and the host could do it and that would be a lot of fun. Had A bat. Could be something doom flipped. Walk off and then just start wondering what you just did now. That wouldn't work you have to work, and now they're telling me my shirt off. That's not gonNA happen. On the Pete Alonzo. Have, someone come dumped the sunflower seeds of head. I took my shirt off in that studio wants it was Wayne. Regrettably you did. Yes. The reason why I didn't regret it was because it wasn't on TV, like they went to masters coverage early or something. So I felt like I don't know liberated that for one second I wasn't being stared at so. Cameras are always rolling. Yeah I know. I. Know. They did I think they were pig but then al promptly took a picture that out Stephen is saying they have it if you want to roll it. Do they. Actually. Get Out of here. Wish I might TV on right now may go ahead. Just kidding. Thought I looked OK I'm just joking. I think I just gave Stephen Panic attack. Aright CEELO got one last. Update. Force One last time today brought to you by winters. Bros.. Waste systems creating a cleaner and greener long island to learn more visit winters, Bros. Dot com, and the Yankees are now one in seven against the raise. This season Tampa Bay getting a Garrett Cole early last night in the Bronx near is the one to two Choi. Swung on a fly ball to right back goes frazier on the track at the wall sees Garm. How do you like that? He's seven for eleven with three home runs against Garrett Cole. It's a two run home Rondo. Right and Tampa takes an immediate to nothing lead. John Sterling, here on the fan the former Yankee at a cup of Coffee Cup of coffee with the Yanks Three homers shortage. Cup of Coffee Yellow thought. Three of his homers to them off coal go figure that. Kevin Care Meyer took cold deep into the second deck in right in the second innings of four run ball for coal to more homers back to back losses at the Yanks. Fell to the raise five to three search doesn't ease the pain Pretty Pretty hard on myself as it is definitely know how important a game was so. I'm wearing nose Scott to be better than this frustrating because he feels like he's had good stuff. Just. Yet. To me a little bit. You know because with with what we had today should've should've pitch better from Aaron Boone standpoint, very small margin for error right now, a lot of close pitches that they did a good job with any any made a couple of mistakes you know when he was trying to get it to a spot and. And Yanked a couple on the homers to all of them across forty six innings so far this season tyler glass. Now on the other side much better. His third straight quality starts to of come against the Yanks six innings of two hit shutout ball one walk nine strikeouts for the Victory Luke void did hit his thirteenth home or but he's been seeing limping a few times now, and that was the case across the plate and headed for the Dugout last night. He says no big deal you're dealing with some type of foot issue exactly. What happened I'm just dealing with a little, but I'll be alright. Stemming from anything in particular now, I've been dealing with it for for a little bit now but Entry Mcginn trying to make feel better than Sundays Sundays. Bad Way off you know I'll get through pretty much. Leave me alone is the takeaway from that raise against seven and one against the Yanks, they lead them by four and a half atop the division. No panic from Brian Cashman didn't make any moves at deadline yesterday and even for the Yankees. Money is a factor in this covert nineteen impacted year dollars are certainly a part of the equation for any business right now. More than ever So you know that's certainly part of the equation, but mostly, he says, the price is just too high. For getting the dollar. Sorry bounces around the forgetting the dollars, the matches before we got the dollars were as problematic where I'd say more problematic than than money. So they'll look forward to getting a small army off the I l. hopefully between now and who the heck knows you know we got Britain coming around the corner and and Glacier Tories would coming around the corner and eventually stanton et Cetera. So got DJ Ladainian back yesterday and so hopefully, Paxton down the line judge eventually as well. So THAT'S PRETTY Formidable squad in their own right. It's a long list of names for sure Masahiro Tanaka and started to be named or an opener to be named for the race tonight in game. Two? We'll have pre game coverage on the Fan beginning at six, twenty, five, four straight losses for the mets Jacob degrom suffered his first of the season yesterday roughed up in the sixth inning but it wasn't all bad against the MARLINS. Here's Ahmed Rosario facing a rare three and count you're saying he might walk I didn't say a word. And indeed. It has happened. I'm Ed Rosario has walked to his teammates. gloriously happy. A hundred and fifty seven plate appearances since his last walked dating back to last year. And the streak is now been broken. There you go. Gary, Cohen and Ron Darling on. Our national nightmares over Rosario with the walk teammates basically gave him a standing ovation and he basically literally walked down the first base opposite of Brandon. NIMMO who likes to sprint down there little else went right after the early innings for the mets Gary Cooper taking degrom deep to open the sixth inning Pete Alonzo with Kierra and then to gromit came on done from there. So it's on the camden yards. Now, for the we throw hosting company we're going to Baltimore. We haven't seen day You know we're GONNA for us we do and we're GONNA go there. You know to compete and get back on track. We're where we Need to but with some reinforcements, even wagon and went out and traded with the Rangers for Todd Frazier Robinson. Chirinos also added Reliever Miguel Castro from the Orioles Ross hoping they'll gel with the existing clubhouse guys are they're they're they're having fun they're preparing WanNa, go out and compete. So you know having additions I'm sure that that's GonNa do just going to do. The same thing can count Alonzo as a guy that's happy to see the Todd father rejoining the team. She's a hell of a leader I mean he's he always has a great attitude. He's extremely infectious and he's just great dude, great great team and this factious Great Dune. And that was before the deal was official but more frazier praise from Lonzo here. This is May, but if it does if he does come back I mean I love todd. Man So he's always always welcome here in the house. Tonight you think. Hey. Why the hell not I mean he hits a home run in his first at Bat. And then goes one hundred at bats without enough. Maybe. Yeah. That's a possibility I. Don I mean nobody excites me less than Todd Frazier. Okay. Wow. I would say version of all the people that I've seen play baseball for the mets I think he's Johnson Bay. But he was there was something interesting about him because he was a huge free agent signing that was a boss. I mean there was excitement around the signing. There was something to talk but todd frazier's just blaze just. Torino's excites you more than Tun dot frazier big. I haven't seen him before. With. The. Yeah with the mets it's it's sort of a new thing. Okay. I'm trying as prize got to be one of the most boring. Baseball players on. Earth. Wow. Telling you all of that, his personality now GonNa make everyone happy in the clubhouse. So that's great but I'm not in the. He was the guy. Remember. Yeah. I remember the salt and pepper that's great and nothing really came from that. Fell apart free. Sure. I mean I am I wrong about this I'm not saying he's a bad guy. I'm not saying he's not. Just like he's not someone I'm excited to see back in a mets uniform in any way shape or form. So great dude local Tom's river everything everybody loves them and I'm sure and he came once he was off. What is he doing for this team? Nothing trying to help them get to the playoffs With Jd, Davis clearly, not right. Maybe they'll put him on the mound tonight because we don't know what the heck's pitching for them tonight or tomorrow or the next day I looked Asher. Would you cow ski? He's going to start for the orioles tonight at seven thirty five see the mets run out there as they try to snap their four game losing streak once more time the big trade from yesterday they kind of headline the trade, Deadline Club and Jerry from going from. Cleveland to the PADRES and nine player deal San Diego giving up some prospects along the way a number of these that they may kind of reshaping their roster as they look to catch up with the dodgers and the L. West. They did shut out the rockies last night in. DENVER. Six to nothing Fernando taty junior continues a tremendous season both in the field and at the plate a two run triple to pace. The San Diego did pretty good. Yes, he is. Yes, he is. The thunder four-game seven with the Rockets Chris. Paul coming up big for his team down the stretch and now the combination of Russell Westbrook and James Harden not so much turn overs late is okay. Okay. See Rather hold off Houston One oh, four one hundred in the early game Jimmy Butler six of six in the final six minutes of the game playoff career high forty points as the heat after a full week long layoff took game one from the box one fifteen. One, zero four tonight the Celtics for two series lead over the raptors that is sort of the undercard. Then you've got game seven between the nuggets and the jazz will see what Jamal Mary Donovan Mitchell have in store for us after going toe to toe the last couple of games it's essentially been a one on one battle at times Murray with fifty point efforts and two of his last three. You've also got the islanders looking to close out the flyers in game five. UP IN TORONTO, the Tampa Bay lightning await the winner of that series after taking down the Bruins in game of their series last night winning three two in double overtime. So they are onto the eastern conference finals and then if the aisles can finish it off, they would meet in Edmonton. Now that the conference finals are going to be shifting to the Edmonton bubble, they would leave behind Toronto and head to Western. Canada also the avalanche put up five goals in the first. Period held off the stars six to three to force game six. In that you reference the conference finals obviously is signifying reclosing it on the end of these NBA NHL Playoffs has anything come of the NFL, shifting their schedule at all or is it just going to be what it is? Thursday night Sunday Sunday night and Monday I think the plan was always for them to they really wanted to play week one as it was as it was scheduled and then there was. Flexibility beyond that if something to move a game Saturday night or two different got positive tests or whatnot, they have some schedule flexibility beyond that Logan Ryan joins the giants one year seven and a half millions they get a boost to their secondary not so much for the chargers they're young star Derwin, James Safety Again, he missed eleven games last year now needs surgery on his right need is expected to keep him out six to eight months of essentially you would think he is done for the season Anthony Lynn yesterday asked about. Possibly, inquiring about Earl Thomas and the quote from him was since you guys are constantly telling me how stacked my secondary is why the hell would I be looking where else? Wasn't all that fair answer line of questioning yes. Let's hear from Bill Belichick now. So he joined the. NFL Radio Training Camp Tour, and as you'd expect plenty of questions about Cam Newton. So knowing what you know about Bella, check you normally he doesn't go out of his way to have a few of praise for his own players opponents. Yes but as far as Cam Newton there was a lot of that yesterday and here he is talking about. What he's seen from Cam in his first month or so at the organization. He's an extremely hard worker not harboring cameras yeezy early he stays late, any works works very hard. So he likes what he seen from him so far obviously, we know that he hasn't been named the starter or anything and boomer thinks it's going to be Jarret Stidham. You guys what did you guys think when he said that was the first thing that popped in your mind that he works harder than Tom. Brady. Yes. That's what I thought like I'm surprised. That's not a headline. That's what he was going through my head. Yeah. No one works harder than I. Tom Brady for the last twenty years, right? That's the first thing I thought I was waiting gonNA attention. Wow. Does anybody written it yet or I'm not sure but I heard a chunk of this yesterday and I pulled like five different cuts of him just slob that's that's an intentional dig because. I'm telling you right now that's calculated because one of the things we've heard about Bella check in Brady and their relationship was that he didn't give Tom Enough praise when he was here. So what Belichick is doing is he's giving cam this over the top praised to make Tom Brady. Angry it's exactly what's going on. Let's just one and you know what? There's four more and I won't even say anything I'll let fliegelman just hit him. And you guys can comment as you hear him some players work on things that they're good at. You know like if you're strong bench press and you just keep throwing more weight on the bench, the camps that type of player that mill works on things that he's not as good at and really try to improve like that's not easy for players really any of us to do something look at something and we're not very you don't. Feel like we're very good at or it's not one of our strengths and time into it, and we've got a great personality along with everybody's in a very social and then has a great presence whether it's a small room of a couple of people or you know in a bigger group and he's highly competitive. It's important to him to be the first guy the hill when we run sprints and you know it's important to him to. Teach in and you can see the effort and the the amount of energy that he puts into the. US. On and on no, it doesn't. But you never surprises me is bill belichick actually saying publicly that's what surprises me. Stuff about cam does it I mean I've been a cam support our fought boomer on this for months now. So I, none of that surprises me that he's that type of guy. But the fact that bill belichick saint all this publicly that's more positive praising he's given Tom Brady and twenty year can I ask you one question? We're the hosts Cristiano. That's on moving the chains. Pat Kirwin and former NFL quarterback Jim Miller see that. Then there's that could be part of it. You know it's it seems like if you're just the assembled media, he gives you nothing. But if he's got a relationship with someone who's been around the game for years and years, he'll talk. boomers always said like when he's interviewed, I'm like talks. I wish there was more like specific digs at brady their. Cam doesn't have some cult cookbook. To eat certain things they actually drinks alcohol from time to time and he doesn't have supermodel girlfriend. They pay attention to worry about that relationship or way for whatever. So he's totally locked in he doesn't have fake hair. It would be awesome if this turns into one of these back and forth, sort of sniping matches the entire year between those two we'll remember they made it a headline when Brady cities never had an offensive coach before like so people thought that was a shot was. Not Exactly. So you could certainly take that leap from that quote if you wanted to I, suppose interesting it's going to be I. Hope they get the season then it should be fun. Indifferent colleagues they're going to. Write I. Know The even the box don't do they play the I haven't even looked at no, they do not not this year next year it'll be fun to Kinda just watch them separately on their tracks and see what happens and what becomes of it quickly notable from the tennis yesterday our girl Var Grachev did her job straight-sets win yesterday not so much Jacob degrom and Garrett Cole and then Cocoa Goth who was the big story at. The US Open. Last year, it's bounced in round one she lost to anesthesia the Silva in three sets. It's the first time that gough has been on knocked out of a Grand Slam tournament in the opening round her four appearances. So she got off to a great start yesterday or last year rather teen sensation, but it comes to a quick end for her the this year at the US? Open. Now now brings us to moment of the day gentleman. And Jerry got a quick glimpse that are pal Sal Licata on s and y from last night working from home no makeup little Pale the shine off his ball head. It was not his best look. Have you seen him yet on TV? They have? Yeah he looks like Adam Silver. That's not a couple of minutes and just need a class. Scary. I didn't even give that a thought. That's pretty good. He looks like an old man is what he? What is he thirty eight forty Over forty. He's forty forty one. Yeah. Yeah. I'm thirty eight I think he's three or four years older than me I think that's Not a good one and in the Meuse House in the backwards just empty creighton barrel boxes bind them. I can we move that out of the shot? No. On the Melissa's household. There's a lot to handle and a half eaten apple on the table. Too. I didn't. That's not a joke. He's actually a half eaten apple there. You know there really is. You I'm serious. There is there's like an apple core on the table next him. Now. I mean, Adam Silver when I. Just, killing our POWs they've got these TV gigs in their faces out there every night and we're just picking in their appearance I. Love Sal Terrible Look. Someone sent us a screen shot from the movie powder. Ever. See that movie I what I saw the screen. Yeah. That definitely is it better than the Adam silver right? Didn't know what it meant. So I left it alone I didn't know if it was something bad. So I just left it there, but it's again not complementary to sell. Maybe you can send them over little care package with some of your wife's. Life I'm sure she's got makeup. He might WANNA use some. All right we love. We bust. The bowls of those. We love the most always remember that.

To season one of this land now on apple podcasts, or wherever you listen to podcasts, also new merch, we have a bunch of new merchant historic crooked dot com slash stories. Check it out.

Carolina may ten thousand calls in one day with a local organization educate voters about state legislative races. They're on their way to their one week goal of thirty thousand calls Pennsylvania, and you just step it up all right. There's GonNa be great calls to action for you, and so if you're listening to this show, and you want to join me on team Pennsylvania, we're about to crush it and make sure Pennsylvania doesn't make the same mistake.

Of volunteers looking to flip these swing states later in the show, we'll be joined by the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff to talk about not just the Roger Stone Commutation, but also what we can expect in terms of holding trump accountable now and when he leaves office, one of my favorite experts here Zane to Feci to talk about the pandemic, and what happens when it meets social media when it meets politics and the incredible Michaela Watkins is on the show, but I she is the author of how to make people laugh host of the podcast fake, the nation and the director writer and Star of the Rom Com Third Street blackout. Welcome back returning champion Nicotine I. Hello also tell to make white people laugh. I don't presume to know how to make all people laugh Oh. Wow, what a A meaningful error. Apologize. White people out it's fun. It was like you guys were giving me way more credit than I deserve in life. It's a very important change. It removes the Valence of politics and just makes you like an expert who teaches people at corporate retreats had to do a better powerpoint. Where can I tell you something really weird? Is that I been writing some things that have been tested for electoral purposes and it turns out. Some of my work really resonates with like the boat rally crew like the. Like straight up trump's base and I was like what am I trump base? Whisper. What's happening? So. Let's get into it. What a week! On Wednesday president trump posed in the oval office with an assortment of food products after a similar post in which Ivanka trump pose with a can of Goya brand beans, violating ethic rules when I said show as your beans. I didn't mean it like this A. Is that about testicle like Danny's tested? No, no. I actually realized as I said that is an inside joke about a gamely. We played one time on. Love it or leave it called. Show US your beans. It has absolutely no meaning to you and I apologize. Okay well, that's criticism number one. Don't tell jokes that only three people will understand. The love it. Go ahead, sorry. Mary Trump Donald. Trump's niece was also going to pose with Goya products, but unfortunately she already spilled the beans. A. Probably like some sort of like Vienna recipe. I don't know what I mean her per beans of or less ethnic. I just think we wanted to start yes. I think we need to start with a terrible joke. I think that's. I. Hey achieved mission accomplished. No but you know what I'm a terrible audience member because I love jokes like that, too, and I even even when when you were referring to testicles earlier, I mean when I thought you were referring to technicals earlier I. Love that, too, because I love referring to testicles. I'm probably the worst person to be doing this particular segment. Okay, let's continue I will love all of it. It'll be really bad for the world. Okay, go ahead moving I'm having fun this week. It was announced that Republicans are considering shrinking their Jacksonville Convention and moving it outdoors cowards. That's. They're cowards because they don't WanNa die from Corona virus. I don't know why. This acknowledgement of reality was pretty surprising until you realize that it was a long con by Eric Trump to hold an absolutely sick convention at Busch Gardens. Dot We could actually do the convention at a baseball field here. This club all run over there and you throw the ball and then I'll throw it back. And what if we did that for like five minutes? Would that be crazy? Like that because I, you went, you started with like a yet. It's like hospice level sick like kind of like young young people Internet speak, whatever and then you moved into some real ernest. Father Little boy issues. That the trump family has because of the terrible parenting. You know it's a IT'S A. It's not cats in the crane on. Lake goes into that will. It's funny because that's what the married trump book is about and a lot of ways, but I find it like. Apparently, it's sold a lot of copies. I'm very happy for anybody who wants to read it I've no no issue with that at all, but for me it's like. I don't feel like trump is a nut. I'm struggling to crack. Not like. Also, it's also like we're mid crime spree like he's still inside. The Bank married trump is outside with a bullhorn yelling. His father was withholding eight. Use The N. word. We'll. We can talk about that when he's bucking in shackles. We can't do that right now. He's doing crime. Wait. Oh, so that's a question though I have for you. Is that you know in January twenty? I love my own grammar. January twenty I think we're going to stop talking about trump. Like. You make it sound like there's going to be books and stuff I'm just like word done on January twenty first. Don't want to utter his name ever again. It's over so. Obviously. Emotionally I would like to have a new experience, but also so I. Think have to do two things like we're GONNA have to make sure that we get out of this psychological coldest document. We're end. Yeah, I agree with that, but at the same time like I talked about this with Congressman Adam Schiff on the show today like there's going to. To be an incredible amount of pressure to just move forward in part because we may have a chance to do like incredible progressive legislation, there's going to be a ongoing economic crisis ongoing pandemic. We're GONNA have a lot to do. The next president is have you know Joe Biden inherits a huge huge disaster, but we still need to make sure we like. The fucking paperwork and be like. Let's figure out what these crimes where we're going to have to do work. We need like A. Truth and reconciliation a post mortem with like the stage manager and the prop master might help us like nat do it again. Yeah gets accused right next time. something. That's. A. Yes. Anyway speaking of gatherings in Florida with authoritarian leanings, the champion Conservative gender norms disneyworld reopened this weekend on the same day. Florida recorded its highest single day of cases since the virus began to Monin poor like I'm not. I'm not moving back to PROC I'm saying out here. Have you seen the hospital? ADMISSION RATES IN PRIDE ROCK? No, thank you. Wait does that also mean the one in Los Angeles, the winning Anaheim's opening? No just the one in Florida. Oh God. What in La would be opening? That sounds easy. They're opening. Either one of them is crazy. It's a crazy thing to do. I understand that all of these businesses large and small have these incredibly terrible set of choices before them like I get that, but I'm not that type pathetic, honestly about Disneyworld I'm obviously sympathetic more for like small businesses where they're just in a state of you know personal financial ruin little. Mom and pop operations like Disney. Guys give him a chance to reopen. Let's see how they can do this thing you know. They've got funnel cakes to sell. It is hard to make at home, Republican. Republican Governor Kevin stood of Oklahoma, tested positive for the coronavirus after attending Tulsa rally in refusing to wear a mask, but at least do is for a good cause destroying the country. After testing positive, still told reporters. I'm probably getting tons of text right now. From other governors around the country at which point a bunch of governors were like fuck in Texas guy now I gotta say get-well-soon. That's this relationship I owed. A fucking, we're friends subtext pals with him. No, thank you fucking idiot. It's a fun thing about that joke. Is that you? It's like one of the many things in the last four years where you did it. Need a joke at all. You just had to say the thing that he was at a rally. That at the rally didn't wear masks got Kuroda virus. That is the punchline. See You guys later my job style. Corona virus is a huge huge asshole, but occasionally there's bigger. There's a bigger one. Knows how to maybe make a joke. I don't want to say it's not buying a sense of humor. Go a little little bit. This rather I'd rather have a beer with corona virus than Donald Trump I'll tell you that much. What does that mean? What does it mean I like it I like it I know what you mean I know what you mean. Take. My chances this week Brazilian. President you. You're both our bitten by an emo. Obviously, we really hope he's okay. We wouldn't want him to catch cove it from biting Bolsonaro. And misdirect. We thought you were talking about both of them are, but you're talking about the. Oh that is where that's county. That's where it is common. No, but seriously I hope they're testing the EMU because I just. The worst person you'd be biting right now. Protect the aim, oh. Yeah, also this week. Prosecutors as at Lane Maxwell's bail hearing claim that she has a secret husband twist. It's Lindsey Graham. That I would really not see that coming. That's what music such a that's. The IT turns out. That's what they have on them. That's what they have right you didn't go to be. You went eighty to be to see, and then you jumped over to G. G is Lindsey Graham Jesus from to beat a lady. By the way. Did you know that is lane or lane? What's IT gives lane? I don't know how to pronounce your name anyways. I try not to not very many human traffickers general, but. She like actually realize about her. Until recently was that how rich she is herself like I thought she was like side hustling a human trafficking gig because she needed the money for some reason like in my mind, I was trying to rationalize why someone would ever do something totally totally horrific, and she does not need the money. She's just a monster, not that needing the money would even be a rationale, but you know what I'm saying I just didn't know how rich she was real like. Sexism in the coverage in as like she's constantly referred to as like an paramour or Associated a strange way and because of that the. It's. Oddly like objectify, in which he's not treated like a central part of what is ultimately international criminal conspiracy. It's weird. Like she's a boss. She is like one of the main monsters. She's not like some sort of like assistant. It's like ridiculous how we've been talking about her strange. Also this week, it was announced that you laid plans to hire. Ten thousand new employees for locations withdraw through. This is obviously good news. We are on our way to what I believe will be chipotle as final form, a feedback that attached directly to your face. That is the goal that has been there. That is remember when Netflix's was like. Yeah, we're starting the DVD's, but we're eventually going to streaming. Japodlay is like bowls are an intermediate step. Those are where we start, but it is not where we and we have a vision and we're almost there. The next step is just long giant balls. They will call them trough, police. Then they move to a feed bag model, and honestly I'm on board, I'm excited. I'm excited. I'm sick of bringing the to. I think your vision is like is a little shortsighted because you need to go from face to then I'm going to just make it grows for a quick second. Because there's opportunities for like the back end where the then took goes into which like some sort of like recycling you know waste management system, and then turns it back into a chapel late product. You're talking about that. You put Lenham AH. That's what you're talking. Japan let them also sounds like something. You know weird that people named Lena do anyways but COA. NOPE WE GOTTA move. We gotTA move forward. I'm so sorry. But portly all right. To professionals people fashion. I Apologize For this whole thing. This is what we do for our jobs. This is our profession. Furthest ten thousand hours the last thing we ever get to say both of us. This week, the twitter accounts of Barack Obama Joe, Biden, Jeff bezos Elon Musk Bill Gates, and others were hijacked remote a Bitcoin scam before Wednesday. The biggest hack of the history of twitter was Mike Huckabee. It was also impossible for any verified person on twitter tweet for over two hours a huge blow to the Lincoln project. The Lincoln project is everyone's like favorite k pop band right now. You know what I mean. They're like everyone is talking about him loving them like. Jamming to their ads like it is just yeah. Yeah, it's like. Are they good, are they I? Don't know I. Don't know. I'm just saying. Keep talking about them like. Say Like I'm glad that everybody's doing everything they can at this guy and my donating to this organization, just going to support progressive organizations. I'm going to support progressive organizations, but I'm not going to be grudge. The only group of people inside of Republican politics that showed even the SH. The tiny strata conscience so I've conflicted feeling great feelings, I'll. I'll click on an ad. I'll wash. Great job agree and on Tuesday the trump administration carried out the first federal execution since two thousand three after the Supreme Court gave the okay. A second federal execution took place soon after a recent Gallup poll found Americans support life sentences over executions by sixty to thirty six percent and a historic shift in this country, which has long preferred the death penalty when you had these executions to trump's current death toll, due to the mismanagement mismanagement of the pandemic. He is almost earned enough points for concierge status. I can I well. It's bold to even approach that topic in the joke writing, consider myself. I. Just want to applaud you for for taking that kind of a risk, you know. What are you say? It's awful Jeff sessions was defeated by trump favourite and former auburn. Football coach Tommy Tucker Ville in the race for the Republican Senate nomination when asked for comment session said I leave elective office with my integrity intact before crawling through a small opening in the side of a fallen oak tree, where he stores his food and Trinkets, eventually drifting off to sleep while swaddled in confederate flag the end. That was that was like the most fun? Remember the the day he's just for. Jeff sessions is just like looking back at the day that he decided to endorse Donnie, he was. I am like how it ruined his life. Like I'm going to support this guy for president. Why not and the wife's like sounds like a great idea? You know what I mean. What. What's the worst the worst that could have? It's not like you're gonNA lose your job. You know, come a pariah. With Corona virus cases on the rise in southern California, officials in Los, Angeles and San, Diego announced that schools would remain fully remote in the fall, and now even the popular kids will know what it's like to eat lunch alone. It's fine. It's fine. It's not that it's not that bad. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I did it I did it a few times, guys. Am I hiding when I say a few times in my hiding dozens other of other times hundreds of other times. We don't know, but just right now. I'll say I did it a few times. Working some stuff, not ready to fully. Fully. Process her high school years, and that cats in ninth grade Atlanta's out. On Thursday a five minute video surfaced of Superman actor Henry, cavill, using his huge muscles to custom build. Upon. Oh, I didn't even see that. Is that first of all people are still doing that? It was it did it look like one of those see-through telephones from the nineties that I had as a child? Sorry, I was just thinking about Henry Cavill I wasn't paying attention with. What's going on, never mind we move on. Yeah whatever you set assurance get. At a pizza that video and I'll have to leave society. And find like it's Mike. The quarantine has been worth it for sure and. Video. And finally in a statement, Friday Ruth Bader Ginsburg disclosed that she once again has cancer that she previously underwent treatment that was not successful at some point earlier this year, but since May. She has been undergoing chemotherapy that has been effective and she plans to continue working and to remain on the court. I've said this before, but Ruth Bader. GINSBURG, genes have the powerful longevity properties of tiny Ashkenazi Jews, when I was born when I was born. Both of my grandmothers, three of my grammar. There's an my great great grandmother were all around with the exception of one grandmother Bessie. These were all diminutive Jews, but you gotTa hang on Ruth as of Saturday morning. It is one hundred eight days until the election is one hundred eighty six days until inauguration day, and if McConnell so much as here's a faint steady tone, she'll be replaced by a forty three year old, right wing lawyer, who believes in only two things, rigorous daily exercise and stopping abortions. First of all fuck that cancer, so hard for reappearing and all that Shit like fuck that cancer, and yeah, I mean I'm not even gonNA feel nervous because I believe in her genetic makeup so thoroughly I believe in medical science and Ruth Bader Ginsburg in equal measure, so I choose not to be worried about this issue, and I will just end by saying one more time if ruth. Bader Ginsburg still has a lip on her shower stall if she has to step over anything to Bank I'M GONNA, fucking lose it. The most important and dangerous place in America is any room with a wet floor and ruth. Bader GINSBURG. I'll even throw in like I. DON'T WANNA! Even Ha see grand molding her home like each lip of a between a doorway nothing. I don't want any like. Let's give that woman some smooth surfaces, but with firm grip firm grip railings I want I'll take some showers carpet. That'll be okay at. The geen John Lovett. It's been so lovely to have you.

He's also the chair of the House Intelligence Committee please welcome back Adam Schiff great to be with you, so things are taking the time you know the past week. This a lot of this broke at the end of the week, but I really wanted to talk to you about it, so we had the commutation of Roger Stone sentence. We have the Supreme Court with a bunch of important rulings on congressional subpoenas on top of that Bill Maher has still continued to do his thing of steadily eroding the Department of Justice putting in Latkes, getting rid of career people. People that he doesn't consider loyal to the president in the wake of the Roger Stone Commutation. You basically made the argument that the remedy is the election. I totally appreciate that I agree with that. Everything should be focused on that way of holding trump accountable and saving the country. But. I actually just wanted to talk a little bit about what you imagining happening after. And as much as we need to focus on the election. The one area where I think I actually don't know what happens. Let's say we were fortunate enough to do what we have to do to defeat trump. We have these rulings that mean were not getting tax returns till maybe next year. How do you imagine your role in looking back when trump has gone? If trump is gone to make sure we get to the bottom of what? What happened that we undo some of these cover-ups that we look into some of the ways in which bill bar tried to subvert the justice system. What are what is your sort of overarching goal next year? To make sure we don't let some of these crimes just pass us by well I would say two things I I would say that between now and the fall. Our go has to be exposure of all the wrongdoing. Let the people see what they have Donald Trump How much corruption there is a much corruption there. There isn't the people around him exposed to the sunlight because we know, the Republicans aren't going to take action to hold anybody accountable. They prove that during the impeachment when we presented overwhelming evidence of other abuses of power so up until November I think exposure of wrongdoing after the election after he's gone then I. Think we continue to expose what he did while he was in office because of course, the administration has stonewalled us in every way it can I, it has donald every subpoena every requests for information so. So there's a lot more evidence of the president's wrongdoing that is being withheld will be withheld as long as he's an office, but it's also going to be vitally important, and I hope that we'll be introducing this package soon to introduce and pass into law a whole set of our own post, Watergate. Reforms are trump gate reforms that attack the abuse of the pardon power that strengthened the independence of the Justice Department that protect inspector generals that provide for expedited court process, congressional subpoenas that have an enforcement mechanism for the emoluments clause. Any number of things that we thought were inviolate norms that we now realize now you can violate these as long as one party has become a cult of personality around the president. You can violate these norms with impunity. We need to put this into law, so that package is going to be very important We will hopefully introduce it even if we can't get made law this year I think that will be a very early priority. in the new Congress in terms of the president is on liability and people around him. That will be difficult decision for Joe, Biden and for his attorney general Because you know the evidence is there. If you look at just one example, the Justice Department indicted Michael Cohen for a campaign fraud game that was directed and coordinated by individual one Donald J trump. They argue that Michael. Cohen should go to jail for his participation in that scheme. So, what does the argument to say? Well Michael Cohen should go to jail, but the guy that did the directing and did the coordinating should get a pass. That's a difficult argument to make, but it's a an issue that Joe Biden will have to way given the circumstances after the election, but I think. Think those are all the steps left? Undertake exposure now exposure later reforms, and ultimately up to the Justice Department, and the new president in terms of what repercussions go beyond that doozy as part of this legislation, any strengthening of the ways by which Congress can enforce it subpoenas, absolutely, in fact I would put near. The top of the list expedited court process for the enforcement of congressional subpoenas. We may go beyond that and revive inherent contempt as well, but there has to be a mechanism to enforce our oversight function in Congress otherwise Congress becomes a paper tiger, capable of holding administration to account so many of the other reforms are going to live or die on whether Congress can enforce them I end to enforce them. You need to be able to do oversight, so yes I would put that very near the top of the list. Yeah, there was this strange moment where when the Supreme Court ruling first came out, even trump was lambasting the ruling on twitter, but somebody had to go into his office and say actually you know Mr President, they may be saying you're. Not Above the law in theory, but in practice they're kicking the can in practice we can go through basically an entire congressional term, and not have a subpoena enforced. Do you plan on following through on these subpoenas? That have come out of your committee. There's ones that have come out of ways and means if you others. Do you plan on enforcing those subpoenas next year well, we planted enforcing this year In fact, we've asked for expedited action by the Supreme Court. Just send the decision back immediately so that we can go back into the court of Appeals or the District Court. And get these records, so we're going to pursue them now. They may very well be able to stonewall up and through the fall. You know frankly for me. The issue is less about getting the records before November. It's more about getting them when the country is at risk We don't know why this president you so. The LADIMIR Putin is adjusted his affinity for dictators. Is it just his administration for Putin is is insecurity or is? It is financial interests in Russia. Were with Russian oligarchs? This is why the withholding of these financial records is dangerous, because we don't know whether the president is compromised. At least we don't know what is compromised by his financial holdings. And so that's dependent on November. That's an issue right now. It's been an issue for the last year or two years. We've been trying to get these records, so we're GONNA. Persist Without Litigation. We hope to get it this year, but if we don't, we'll continue until we do. Because the country deserves indeed needs I. Think full answers. Thanks for talking about this because. Because I do think on the one hand you know I I I'm with you. We have the remedy. We gotta get him out. Everything is hinges on getting out and honestly looking too far past that right now is a luxury I. Don't think we can afford in the middle of his pandemic. We're in the middle of a crisis. He's a lawless person. Is He's? Supported by these Republicans in the Senate we have to do everything we can save the country by removing him the only value I think right now. I'm looking forward is I worry and I think others worry that next year we have a democratic. President Democratic Congress godwilling. There's going to be a pandemic an economic crisis. There's going to be an opportunity to pass him in the most progressive. Progressive Legislation in history is going to be a genuine opportunity to move this country forward in a profound way, hopefully hopefully, and in that context I can see a lot of pressure on people like you. Who have this oversight responsibility to say? Look with impeachment? There was political blowback. Most important thing is getting these pieces of legislation done. Why are we looking backwards? We fail to look backwards. In a lot of respects after Watergate Iran Contra after the Bush crimes. There's this habit we have. After a politician leaves office to say, it's time to move forward. How do you resist that pressure? How do you commit to making sure? We look backwards and get to the bottom of all of this so that we know what happened in can prevent it from happening again. That's just you know it's not just the look backwards. It's a look back to protect the future. Without understanding exactly the magnitude of this presents depravity and those around him without analyzing what went wrong then we're. We're not going to remedy the situation so to me. It's all about protecting the future, but we can't do that. Being ignorant of what's happened in the past they may very well be some of that dynamic that you mentioned that people want to say you know. Let's move forward. Let Bygones be bygones. Let's turn our attention. You know purely in in a four direction, but I think it would be a terrible mistake to think that Donald Trump could not recur. I mean it certainly could recur in the form of Donald Trump. He will be at this point a former one term president. But it could recur very well and other people that lack basic morality, and so I think it's going to be very important to make sure we follow up that we do what's necessary that we learn the scope of misconduct in this administration that we hold everyone accountable. And that we pass laws to protect the country going forward, you know similarly an apropos, saying about the pandemic I answer news to bill a month or two ago, Senator Feinstein introduced the Senate version just within this week to establish nine eleven light commission to analyze what went wrong with our handling of the pandemic as a nation why we have the worst response on the world, instead the best response now you could say and this won't take effect until next year. That is the commission wouldn't be formed until next year. Well, why bother looking back Donald Trump has gone. We know how responsibly was so much of this. We do need to look back. We need a full accounting of all the reasons why we failed to stop this pandemic, and how we protect against it or another one like it in the future so I think those look backs are very important to protect the country going forward. thank you before I let you go. I did want to ask you to lightning round questions in a segment. We are calling shift into higher gear. Listen we're all stuck at home I. Don't think we're operating on our best to be honest.

When we last spoke, you admitted. Look because I'm a ferocious interviewer. I, think. Under Cross examination that you laps in your veganism in the midst of the impeachment. I knew you were GONNA go there, look! We've all done some emotional eating in the past few weeks, I can only imagine from your point of view.

She's from one of the country's richest families, and currently serves as the secretary of Education Betsy Devos. Thank you so much for joining us to be honest. Madam Secretary. I'm a bit surprised. You agree to come on the show. Oh Jonathan I'm actually a huge fan. It's stakes. I. Think think I understand what happened. Okay, all right? Let's dive in lots of variants and teachers and administrators. They're very nervous about opening schools given the administration's failure to contain the virus. What are you saying right now to worried parents across the country, Jonathan? These concerns are exaggerated first of all. It's very difficult for children to be infected. Their noses are quite small, but also I find it offensive that anyone would think treat our children like like what like test subjects like rhesus monkeys in their early years of the space race, just putting on those little helmets and strapping them in their little seats on an adventure to outer space. Actually! That's that's kind of a sweet analogies. Yeah, terrifying, just terrifying stuff well. You've never been space clearly. I haven't been to space, but a lot of those monkeys. They didn't make it home. Well you know. Show me someone who missed their space. Gay and I'll show you an island in Florida. Well. The point is Jonathan is that we have a plan. And for instance Dr Putting Him in quotes foued. She says that we should keep a minimum of six feet of parts at all times, but I've say why do a bare minimum I say place desks twenty feet apart if the classroom isn't big enough for that. Just use one of the schools, grand banquet halls and I know your concern I know it. Jonathan I know, but obviously given the pandemic sacrifices must be made, and our daughters will simply have. They're coming out parties over zoom. I'm sorry. Did you say grand banquet halls well well Jonathan? They don't have to be grand. I know some of these nineteenth century. Institutions really scammed on ceiling height, so don't get me started, but if you're banquet, halls are sub-standard. Just use the Polo grounds. As long as we're careful to protect our precious horses from exposure to the children protecting horses, kids are not going to respect social distancing rules. They are kids and we still don't. Don't know the long term impact of this illness, and we still have rising cases I that that's why everyone on staff needs to wear face coverings, teachers, counselors, headmasters. You name it head. Headmasters were talking about of course headmasters. Jonathan Headmasters Gas. Rules are rules I don't care if you're groom of the stool, your in a mask for pupils. That mask must be in your house colors. How about that? For example, if a child is associated with done script house, let's just say they're wearing a mask in Bedford blue and their masks will be removed immediately and done script house will be docked ten points. Secretary Devos. I. Have to stop you first of all I. Don't know what a groom of the stool is fascinated to find out what that is. But what about public schools you're in charge of public schools. You're supposed to be in charge of helping them. Are you suggesting public school children won't care about their house poets? I think you're underestimating children. I mean I just don't think no children at all points wild. Also we're going to be requiring all one time. Use items like textbooks and teachers things like that. They just get disposed of once. They're contaminated and the minute book is returned to the library. It must be promptly burned secretary. Seems crazy, school budgets are tight. They can afford to throw away books. There's no resources for this loud. Then let them do that. Donors choose situation. They love so much. You can't see me, but I'm rolling my eyes I. I don't think teachers like buying their own supplies donors choose. Why do they do it every year Secretary Devos Betsy? If I can call you, Betsy, listen. Public, schools do not have ballrooms or horses or House points. They barely have enough space in their classrooms to fit all the students. There's no money for medical supplies. There's no money for ordinary supplies. Oh! Okay. I don't. CARE. What do you mean you don't care? We'll see what do I mean by I. Don't Care Okay I. Act like I care and most of the time I. Even believe that I care, but if I actually truly cared if I really cared. I'd resign. I, don't belie- in this job I'm just a very rich person who donated to powerful people with my family's money when I wasn't investing in Theranos and failed Broadway musicals, so it was absurd to accept that job it's it's genuinely genuinely evil not to make room for an actual expert during this crisis I. Don't know how to help public school children. I wouldn't really want to if I had to I don't actually have any discernible skills. Even if I tried so you're qualified as I am Jonathan and you're just gonNA actor from that two thousand one film rat race. Why. WHY SECRETARY DEVOS! Why do this well? For starters, let's look at my life I mean. My brother is a literal mercenary war profiteer. My husband got rich on multilevel marketing. There are no moral guardrails in my life and money men. I've never actually had to be forced to show greater courage or integrity, or when you know might have cost me, but even though I'm I'm qualified and oblivious. I'm also white and rich and middle, aged and dress likely Dole's so the only difference between me and say Kanye. Is I know what to tell my shopper to buy at Neiman's to make old white senators feel at ease, please. Please resign. Please note thank you. There's no crying in baseball game by he. That's Betsy Devos everyone. And Well Betsy Devos has gone and WHO's here in the zoom. It's Michaela Watkins. Thank you so much for being here. You just missed. The Secretary of Education, Betsy Areas Oh my God is right there she. Says you. Did she offer anything you know helpful about how? We're GONNA bring kids back safely now. Nothing. Just an imposition, an kind of a lovely Oscar de la Renta jacket very slick John. That's a real surprise I mean she's so. She just seems so on the ball. Yeah, no, it was I expected to get more firm answers got a lot of nonsense Miguel. Thank you. Thank you so much. This is so fun. Thank you for doing this firm answers. You should ask her about groom of the Stool Groom of the stool. We come back. I'll be joined by ZANE empty fetchy.

She is a writer for the Atlantic and The New York Times a professor at the University of North Carolina and author of the book twitter and tear gas. Please welcome back. XENA empty FECI. Things are being here. Thank you for inviting me so. You've been writing extensively about the corona virus and what happens when science meets social media when science meets politics, even talking about masks for some time you wrote about it in May signed an open letter with other scientists, urging politicians to take more serious measures about mass. It does feel like right now. We've been having this conversation for a while to obviously. Obviously ridiculous it took until now for trump to put a mask on, but what in your mind is the most helpful way to move the conversation forward right now? Because a lot of the times it feels like it's a bunch of people who understand why master important talking to each other, and we know from polls that seventy percent of the country things. Things should be required eighty percent. No, they make a difference. So what are your thoughts there? So I think one of the major confusions around this was the idea that masks wouldn't protect the wearer perfectly, and that is correct. Especially cloth masks are not going to protect the wearer, but what they do is they protect the transmission of the virus to. To other people, and that's especially important. Because with SARS, the earlier version of the same corona virus we got lucky. People were infectious. Wedneday had fever here. People are infectious before that so what we're trying to do with getting everybody to wear masks is to stop the spread of the virus from people who don't even know. They're infected to other people. The second thing I think that's really important to understand is that it's kind of like measuring air pollution so when you want to bring air pollution down, you would put her on the exhaust pipes of the car right, but then to understand whether air is clearer. You don't measure the air inside the car so when people wear the mask, and then we look at. Did it protect the wearer? We're doing the wrong measurement where we're trying to do is ease art air all afar common. Common Air Clean, right? It's not that only that car that just put a filter on what that car by putting a filter on protected everyone else. The third thing here is that masks even help the wear a little bit with a lot of these kinds of viruses. The initial dose matters right. There's a lot of young healthcare workers who've died tragically and part of the reason that for them. It's a higher risk as there are on patients all the time and they're doing procedures that generate. Generate these little aerosols that they're ingesting a lot. If you're wearing a mask and you're still infected, perhaps because the mass is not like a medical mask or senate, and ninety five cents, not hundred percent for you, but cutting down your dose is absolutely helping. You have a milder version of it most of the time, so from every kind of perspective we can talk about and I kind of find a tragic that it became politicized. Because it's the one thing you can tell people you can. Can Do this both to protect your community, and probably to some degree help protect yourself a little like there's no other tool we have that. Is that a fictitious for that Little Bang for the buck? What I just told you? This is not a lot of thing to communicate and I just can't believe six months in were still having to explain pretty much what the scientists have more or less figured out, and it's not that complicated, and we're still fighting over it, which is tragic well. That's why I wanted to ask you about so now. At first I think there was some defenses around masks. There was a fear about mass being courted, and maybe they're honestly with some intellectually dishonest information about masks early on where really what they were saying was not mass won't help you, but actually mass will help doctors more, but that was now months ago. At this point, it seems as though there's a consensus around masks you know. We've seen Democratic leaders and many. Many Republican leaders at this point talking about masks, you have trump allies. You have people like Ted Cruz refusing to wear massey of others refusing to wear masks like yes, it is politicized, but it seems to me what we're talking about is a group of Republicans have rejected the science, and that they are engaged in politics while everybody else is trying to stop them from doing that. And the country seems to get it right as I, said seventy percent of the country. Country think smashed be required eighty percent according to a poll today says they believe masks can help control the spread, so I wanNA come back to that question, which is what do we do about this minority of people led by propaganda apparatus that have politicized masks when we need them to do the right thing to protect everybody, some of the earliest adopters if masks of messaging were Republican senators and some governors, even because it fits the individual responsibility model, right, it's something. Something! You can do now I think there's a lot of the government should do, but this was the one thing you could tell individuals to do, and there are some early Republicans who are kind of trying to get on board and saying wait. This is a good idea like we do this. We get outta locked as it's a win, win, it fits. There's no ideological problem. It just got twisted from trump down and that tells you. The GOP is trump's party when When we were having difficulty convincing a lot of Democrats, even the some of the Republicans have jumped on board, but then trump went around with his Donnie to wear on this I may be. I personally won't wear one, and then after that you see the polarization to us really tragic, because it was a low cost intervention We also had this dismissal of East Asian expertise because early on when I was writing and saying look, there's oldest preponderance of evidence in favor. Favor of masks, a Lotta doctors and CDC and everybody kind of came late to that partly because the western establishment, even in Europe was not taking the East Asian expertise seriously in Hong, Kong and South Korea and Taiwan I. Mean They dealt with? SARS to right that there's a lot of top notch people there and they weren't listening to them and masks bring a collective good in western countries. Especially, the tradition has a hard time wrapping its head around something that doesn't. Doesn't necessarily help you directly and I. Think certain just went against the way we tend to think I mean. Historians are going to look at it and say. What did they fight about? Really because again it's such an easy intervention, and what you mentioned earlier, the early messaging that they might be on health. Four Eli harmful was more about the shortage right. I. Think that was very damaging. You know we're a nation facing a catastrophe i. mean it's not a moment to. To Lie to us for our own good, but in the messaging. What we weren't told was look. There's a shortage and we need to preserve them for healthcare workers I. Think people would have stepped up so that really added to the confusion this perfect storm of all these things that came together I mean I, told trump quite responsible for a lot of this. It's so obvious what he's done wrong, but in reality there was a lot of articles published in. Liberal or mainstream media that considered mask-wearing almost like superstitious is to something Asians do. Yeah, so there's some self examination I think that needs to happen. So one other aspect of this has been how it's played out on social media, and it was one of the reasons I wanted to talk to you because I, think I I became aware of your work in a way that you looked at how mass shooting spread online as an idea you know, I've been struck by these viral videos of people refusing to wear masks. They are spread. I think by people who are angry and frustrated that their fellow citizens are helping complete. Yeah, absolutely, so, what do you think is the consequence of this of these sort of pro mass videos of anti mask? People Spreading? What do you think happens? I'm so glad you about this because I've been wanting to either talk about or write about it, because I think they're absolutely counterproductive right? Right now I get it right. People are frustrated and you find SOM- person throwing a tantrum over mask, and that gets a million views or two million views, and I've been looking around and I know Tiktok Kinda hard to follow. Because it's so obscure, it's also really viral on Tiktok. It's merged with the Karen me right for one thing. People throwing attention over mass. I'm sure happens. But it's not that common thing people are trying to do the right thing. The second thing is once you make that into a martyrdom to the people who are like unhappy about this. It looks like everybody's like laughing at someone who's being victimized because they're against mass, and I think it's actually making people more reticent because we know from other kinds of research that if you shame people, it just backfires trenches, people now I'm not saying like it's good an adulterous Stupa Tantrum over a mass. I do not like that myself, but given that prob like we're highlighting what I think. Think is a super rare behavior. Most people are just either wearing masks, or maybe a little confused and are trying to say what's the right thing to do, and then you put into the polarization machine what ends up happening? Is that the people who were slightly on the other side of the polarization end up getting pulled into that polarization and what you can do, you can do the. The positive messaging we know from other public health thing you give the positive message. You say you're helping people. Thank you for your kindness. Because if he just sort of chastise, the one person who looking quite silly. I get it. The videos are funny and I get all the anger, but it sucks to put that distorted incentive that you talk about. We did with mass shootings. Right put the. The person on loop. Yes, Ninety nine percent is looking well. That's terrible, but there's that trouble. Young Men thinking that showed you right. You do not want to feed that machine and so thanks for bringing that up Yep just honestly it's because I've been falling your work that I had that reaction. So you say most people are complying or are confused, and then we highlight these sort. Sort of bad actors at the same time you know you've talked about how we focused on beaches and at the same time you know we also focused on to protest against mass, but really the problem isn't necessarily beaches or mass. It's the kind of like data day noncompliance the day to day. Not Take it seriously. The people who aren't avoiding mask as a political statement, but just because they. They can't be bothered or their undisciplined, or they're sick of it or they're hearing mixed messages. How do we stay focused on the right aspects of this? We should've kept parks and beaches open. That's from the beginning because the alternative socialization endorse, and that is just really riskin dangerous as opposed to being outdoors I mean the so virus UV light inactivates viruses. Anders win so dilutes so. So. People are going to socialize to some degree, especially young people. You'RE NOT GONNA. Have them absolutely not socialized for a whole year? We can convince them to do less and to the degree they do it. We can try to do it in safe replaces so that was the one thing, but also what we saw is like I've been collecting some examples like I'll send example like an article. Article in New, York Times and Washington Post La A. Times like across the political spectrum, and you'll see this article that says contact tracing his revealed that it's indoors restaurants, bars, meatpacking, and poultry, processing plants, and most of the liking places like California, most of the people who are falling ill are poorer people. Low wage workers often African, American or Latina. Who could not stay home? Right they do not work on slack. I can work on soon, right? These people have to go to work and they are working on ventilated indoor spaces. They do not have the right protections. They even if they're wearing personally masks, that's not enough protection per se and that's was falling ill, even sometimes article. Even explain this. What are you seeing the photo? A of people on the beach and I look at the pictures very often. The people are not within six feet. It's taken with a telephoto. Zoom it Kinda cramps them, but sometimes it's not even crammed. I've seen pictures from. Jacksonville beaches that you know there's hardly any one and the title says packed, and also outdoors I mean I would personally feel a lot more comfortable? Almost any distance outdoors compared to anything indoors I. Don't feel comfortable. Six Foot Indoors I. Feel comfortable outdoors, and especially cool on earth in a beach goes to a complete stranger and talks to them for fifteen minutes, which is kind of the CDC guideline for you know really close. That's really unlikely. In fact, we do not have a single confirm outbreaks. I'm not saying nobody could ever get infected at the beach especially if you've talked A. A closest on someone stranger bought six months in. We know the victims. We know how they get infected. We know the coup. They are and where it happens, and we have this absolutely misleading visual. That is dominating and misleading people all right so I think there's this weird Wayne, which we lost control of the science in the messaging, and both the politics in the moralizing have taken over on the left and Democrats, they noticed the polarization of masks and trump, and all of that, but they do not necessarily noticed that older newspapers are publishing these beach pictures and shaming young. Young people when the data absolutely says, it's poor people, and it's restaurants and bars, so we don't always see our own tribes sort of the way in which our own communication gets distorted and also sort of in terms of social justice. It's hiding. The actual victims is a major crisis were not really addressing. I said this in an interview like a starter pandemic in that it's not the worst possible virus like it's terrible. Course it's tragic, but it's a manageable one in the spectrum of the kind of viruses we could have pandemic with. We could have the each and one or Or something like that be a pandemic with much higher fatality rates more transmissible, so we got something that's like mid sized, and yet we're screwing the swan up so I just Kinda. M afraid you know. What if we do get one that spreads like measles, and has fatality rate something like h wife, and what was fifty sixty percent at times? That's scary. I mean this is terrible of course I. Mean The all one hundred thousand people. It's crazy and scariness terrible and yet really of all the pandemics we could have gotten. This is on the milder side. Cold Comfort one last. No. It's I'm going to worry about that another day. The. But. It seems like for a long time. We've been treating this like a crisis. That's always a month away from being over, and so we haven't been doing these sort of long-term things. You know you talked about the fact that even now six months in. We still haven't figured out protocols to make sure that people aren't forced to sort of go through traumatic medical procedures alone as really doing away from their families, family members to be away from their families, and even now. Now in the conversation about what levels of risk will accept, it's not a really honest conversation about the fact that our failure means. We're going to be dealing with this for months. Yeah, we're not having an honest conversation. From the beginning I think like flattening the curve and I wrote an article in February explaining flattened the curb because I was like. We're not GONNA do this. and I watched that messaging evolve almost intellect. We're going to flatten the carbon. Be Done. Rather than we need to flatten the curve as a breather for the hospitals while we get our ship together, right? That was kind of what we needed to do and we didn't do that. And after a couple of weeks, a lockdown and we're done like no, no, that's like we just sort of get the fire slightly lower, but it's still burning right, and now we're in the second thing and everybody's like okay. This is out of control again and the reality is until we do the comprehensive solution which includes the universal masking which includes looking hard at ventilation right now I'm seeing school districts try to open A. A by putting hand sanitizers into the school, and not thinking about opening the windows ride by all means. Put the hand sanitizer and wash your hands, but it's the ventilation. That's driving this right, so you're not getting the proper like six months in where is the sort of the ventilation considerations? Whereas the UV lights, may be near the dachshund just to get filters all those things open windows do whatever we can outdoors like six months end. There's so little outdoor transmission in the literature. We should push everything we can as much as we can. Including schooling to the degree possible I'm not saying like a very hot. Hot Place is going to do this, but whatever we can, so we know what we need to do, and we're not doing it and the reality is the best case scenario is that we get better treatments throughout the fall and some mass vaccination campaign with a working vaccine sometime in spring of twenty twenty one and we can get back to a regular normal life in about a year from now, and what we do now is going to determine what that year is going to look like. We can have that year with a lot more deaths. Kids can't go to school. a lot of tragedy, hospitals overwhelmed and. And what happens that cancer patients aren't getting treating. There's like a lot of diseases. Vaccinations of around the world are downright. There's all these costs were paying by not fixing some of the so we're either going to that way, or we're going to get our act together and say we're GONNA. Fix The stuff as much as we can and put the fire out, and then just sort of try to coast till the vaccines and treatments all arrive, and from what I fear is that just by are both political and scientific communication crisis were just going to end up with the worst possible scenario by just sleepwalking into it. And tragically it'll be the elderly who pay the price, plus I think especially younger kids. Another year away from school will be devastating for a lot of kids. Cools is the only structured safe-space they have the American Academy Pediatrics Oh Carson. Because for the parents are in this pressure cooker. The kids are on their house arrests. But we're not even GONNA get them, so we're GONNA. Have the very young and very old pay a significant price, because we can't get our act together and I'm sorry to be so cheery quote on quote, but the reality is if we ignore, this is GonNa hit us. For another year like this, and that's what we're looking at normally I would like to find a silver lining, but we'll have to find it. There's not the only silver lining is that this is like a crisis? That's not the worst possible viruses I said. It's not the worst possible pandemic, but it's showing us every weakness we have. It's showing US our political weaknesses. It's warning enough that it's got our attention good. We've been worn before we had the other SARS. We had this we we've been warned before. It looked like we weren't gonNA pay a tiny slice now serious enough maybe were paying attention, and then we can sort of look at old weaknesses that have been exposed and try to fix it. Yeah, and that's my silver. Lining is like. Can we learn from this Xanadu Veggie. Thank you so much for your time. Thanks for. Sharing your thoughts. It's good to see you say thank you you, too. We come back we'll Donna. Don't go anywhere. Love it or leave it and there's more on the way. Love, it or leave. It is brought to you by spotify. Hey, everyone I, want to let you know about. A new podcast called an oral history of the office I'm a huge fan of the that's Cool I. Love the ever since I I watched the British office the original office years ago. They're not that many episodes and I will always I. Don't know I just loved it. That's all love the office. And then it came to America and I was like Hey. I love this to you. Know and they're different. We have a emily watches it almost every single. Single night before bed, we have another an old episode of the office. That's what's happening over there. The podcast is hosted by Brian. Baumgartner, who plays Kevin? Malone the series goes inside the making of the office, and how ultimately overcame all odds to change the face of television, if features interviews with the cast and creators, and never before heard stories from those who were there from the very beginning checkout, an oral history of the Office for free, only on spotify or huge fans of the office and I'm can't wait to hear more about how it all came together. Only on spotify love it or leave. It is brought to you by cash. Cash is the simplest way to transfer money from one user to another. We love to use it because it doesn't charge monthly fees or fees to send and receive money, also an option to secure a free debit card that allows users to make transactions and withdraw the money that they have in their cash up account. If you download the APP and use the Promo Code Crooked, you'll receive ten dollars in cash. Apple sent ten dollars to donors choose which is helping teachers in the classroom. Cash has been with us from the very beginning, and you get ten dollars. That's money for. For you if you use the code quit and then ten dollars goes teachers I don't know if you've been paying attention, but federal government is basically going to throw a bunch of teachers into a meat grinder and see if I don't know education comes out. That's their current funding plan. Support Teachers support crooked by downloading the cash out putting in the crooked, and then you get ten dollars to spend it on whatever you want. Get a couple Tacos, even if it's in between meals and sometimes once in a while you're like it's three o'clock lunches far away dinners far away. Talk was right around the corner. You know cash out musical crooked. And we're back. Because we all need this week here. It is this week's high note. Submitted by our listeners I love it. It's heavy from Arkansas and I this past week I was officially listed coup president of our local on here in. in northwest Arkansas. A of pride. And! That was really useful I guess it was so much so that we had a few numbers cried. So I guess it means people cry my first week and not designers something to do something right Anyhow appreciate you appreciate you think about it. Hey Don. My name is kristen. I live in Austin Texas and my high note for the week was I'm finally after a month getting over the coronavirus, but in Austin in Travis? County! Texas. We are going to the democratic. Primary runoff election I was afraid I wouldn't be able to vote because I'm afraid of infecting my community and I won't do that. But here in Travis, we have curbside voting just like curbside pickup. Able to pull up a poll worker came out. We all were masks and I got two cats. My vote for our Progressive Democratic candidates here in Texas so hopefully with curbside voting and keeping everybody say we're going to be able to help turn Texas. Thanks I.

71: Service Course | Episode 10 | Unbroken record

"You listening to serve is caused by the spike podcast with Lizzie banks and Tom Walley. Well. Pointless asking. Where are we listen? Again still but. Separate homes and I'll separate homes, but not in the same, but it's really good, actually because it's raining and I'm really happy to see because we got a month of Sunshine. which has been glorious. Beloved country's been drying out so I'm pretty happy that we're not going to have a month of rain, and it's a little frustrating because it was Ju- to be the women's tour this month, and if it was going to throw it down, we know how to probably with one race. Yeah you do rated in the conditions talking about racing in well. We're GONNA. Be Resting in good conditions because you're actually going to be racing quite soon, right? Yeah, I know I've caught a race coming up in two weeks time and yeah, it's the inaugural women's e Tor, and it's three days of racing on the platform, which is same platform that. This podcast user. Jira, which is really cool so. I think it's GonNa be broadcast live on the BBC as well. If you're in the UK, then check it out. So you can tweet about that, so follow on twitter, and you'll sling a link when the race in starting. Yeah, absolutely and hopefully it should be something exciting and something a bit different to watch, and you've been doing the ideal Pratt by eating your way around virtual Italy as well during the. Eating and drinking my way around virtually yeah. It's been interesting preparation, but now it's been really really good fun. I've been joining in with Lionel as he's been cooking his way around Lee, and then even on the days when he wasn't cooking, we were kind of finding new recipes and. Drinking the delicious wine from divine sellers that was of the baby Giro box so yeah, it's been really fun. It's been something a bit different to do, and you know it's just been. weirdly nice to spend some time home, obviously I wish we weren't in the middle of global pandemic, but You never get to spend time at home especially during this time of the year so. It's it's actually something quite different in kind of weirdly enjoyable, not allowed to say that I'm enjoying spending time at home, better, yeah. Wash your experience of indoor in boilers. Straw race. That's all in the past. I did little bit of swift racing last year. Our team wherein? Swift. Job Tom on tech podcast during out, but no mind. We'll just forget about that. Yeah I did a little bit of swift racing last year, but I've never raced on. GT, so yeah I'm going to give it a game over the next few days and try and. See what is going to be like and. I don't know. I think. Real racing is my thing, but for the time being, it's good to have something as good for the fans as well of engagement because we've got nothing else right now. Okay so this is all going to be taking place in your pain cave. Can you paint a picture of your of Your GonNa? Be Racing from? I would love to, but it's just my dining room, so if you look on my instagram, then you can see what my dining room is like and I will have hopefully hopefully. This nice cooler weather will continue because. It'd be slightly less unpleasant than. Have the window, Riday wide-open mice, one year the ready with maybe some ice packs to shove down my neck and plenty of fluids, because you always just absolutely swept buckets when you're doing these things just when you being normal training, right buckets so. Get to get the electorates down and get the mass bars and as well. It's going to be really interested in how you guys. Actually because obviously you guys race together on the road and a road race has a certain rhythm, but when people race on these virtual platforms, the rhythm is just know what my experience is just completely different is. Sprint from the star, and then try and hold it for as long as possible it's. It's funny. I think people always ask about tactics and stuff in erasing and I don't really think there are many tactics also in this race. There's any three man teams so really very limited, because if someone gets dropped on your right, and it's really just health leather from the start, and just who can cling on who's kind of got the most power, and sometimes you know it's really stupid. Little things like when the acceleration is and I didn't know about GT. Gt actually because I'm not raised on GT, but with swift. If you just missed initial acceleration, because there's a lag or something like that, then it's not possible like in a normal road race to do, and it's other Asian and got back on. You just simply can't close the gap. You can find that you're doing effort of four hundred fifty watts, and you're just making no in raids, so it's pretty crazy. Really you have to kind of anticipate what's coming up? Yeah I mean just rider threshold for an hour, basically with extra spikes well, this episode Lizzy, so we've talked about virtual racing and we've talked about Jira which was a back at some classic races. This episode is all about a cycling event. The should have just happened, and but didn't take place obviously because of the global pandemic. Talk about this episode so this month. So this month we're talking all about who what bike which is. The UK track trade team that took on the world, and we're going to be looking back at their inception through to where they are now and to their record breaking attempts, which they should have just done, but we can't stop this episode without mentioning the latest heart attack on the block and do you know what that is Tom? Offer some and New Kid isn't it some snuck some New Jersey is and if you've been tuning into the regular podcast, you will know that cycling podcast of just released then new training kit, and an awesome t shirt in collaboration with Tusha, and they look really great. Actually I can't wait to get my hands on them. It's a super nice designed for the Jersey both men's and women's. Jerseys and then there's a great t shirt with incorporate some of the best phrases from the cycling podcast over the years, so go to show, and you can reserve yours now and hopefully the production will be pretty soon, but they look great, so don't delay hands on them. Well Stacey Snider Mug I've got my box of wine. Just need the Jersey now. You're pretty lucky that you've got your stacy's item I actually had a conversation with someone the other day. He messaged me saying. Did you manage to get your stacey? Snider Mug because I've been trying and I was eight minutes in I missed it so. Yeah very rather is Tom. Well, you know how it got it. A friend bought it for me. Talk Omar. Didn't get one being part the sightly podcast. Okay well before we get onto what bike and I'm really excited, listen to all this. On a lot of interviews with them and the thing about that team is they are just such great innovators, and had they been able to do the series of world record attempts. We would have seen some incredible innovation and action, but before we get to then let's do a quick news roundup. Few little stories have picked up over the month for the you've seen all of these and I talked about was. The first indoor cycling show obviously the COVID nineteen pandemic is people to do a lot more indoor riding on the turbo and NYC have released. What is they claim is the first indoor specific training show well pretty interesting because. I have been in partnership with Mark Cavendish for a long time, but as far as I'm aware, not gonNA. Actually make the shoes. Somebody else makes the shoes and then mocking NYC. Painted up with the with the Nike swoosh on them stay. That's interesting and I'm not quite sure what the differences between an indoor shoe in an outdoor show. Maybe you can tell me Thomas Ventilation. Can tell you this two things, stability and breath ability apparently. I mean I I'm someone who's doing all my riding indoors at the moment. I can't get out in a moment and so something any anything that keep me bit cooler would appeal to me, but this this next story again right in your wheelhouse, Lizzy I reckon. I think. crowdfunding and these crowd puts on the best places to find interesting news cycle in tech and and I've been following this. Comical Body rocket, and they've raised. They've they've raised so I two hundred and fifty grand and smash their funding target, and what is essentially is real time and dynamic analysis while you're riding your bike using sensors. Well I mean. We've already got that on the market with something that we're GonNa talk about later, but not connect to something that. have been using so. That's interesting. I wonder what the price point is and I wonder if it's going to be able to to. Compete with that maybe. Well it's interesting. 'cause obviously we're kind of an early stage. In in these sorts of sensors, and there are different, it'd be interesting to see which strategy so takes off, you know. People talked about wearables tech doing it. This is three senses of one in the seat post one in the Stan and then opposite uses. The power through your crank and really interesting I mean. I think it's something that we will see. Become Ubiquitous in cycling in future another an a final one I picked up another one another crowdfunding story, and this is hindsight's which was settled by. Callum skinner and physicist friend of his Alex MacDonald. Essentially A. Essentially cycling glasses the offer you review. It's quite difficult to explain how it works. So I got them to do it for us. We start off by talking about a very very very very powerful laser, which are now, you'll love I. said a masters in Physics at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow and hidden deep in on an underground bunker, not far the center of Gospel and George Square. If you've ever been Glasgow, he'd been square and there is a very big concrete bunker hidden under grown twitch hoses. I believe is still the UK's most powerful laser. AM, which is a pet? What laser so am I sense of scale? If you were to take all of the sunlight and just to be clear, I did just to make sure I was getting my numbers right? Do the math on this the other day. If you to take 'em all of the sunlight, which is hitting the earth from the sun in one unit time SIA second, compress it down into the size of a human hair, so all the way from east-west every Sunday hitting the earth in one place, and then you show are laser next to it. It would be a thousand times more powerful than all night together in that same unit time, so it's pretty ridiculously powerful, and hence the incredibly bake concrete doors and everything, so it's a it's. It's quite a beast, really so we were using that. For it was called the laser at the time and I was responsible for 'em. Redesigning the the alignment of or called quadruples which are basically big electromagnetic lenses. Because if you're firing a laser at powerful into a glass Lens, the Glass, Lenses just going vapor. So you need to find something more interesting to steer the laser, we did that using electromagnetic and forces. The. Glasses that allow you to effectively see what's coming behind you now as a kid I remember like they used to sell these spyglass in the back of magazines which? Effectively just a wing mirror in the in the corner of each glasses, but it was a very different. That's it. Can you describe how you'll? Technology works? Yeah, absolutely so the SPYGLASS is common is something that we get a lot? And because obviously they were hugely popular and certainly used to get them in magazines, and all this kind of stuff. You know you'd save up some tokens, and then you'd send away for Kip. Pair of spy glasses someone else from their business one just. Know there's plenty of the marrone absolutely, and the problem is that they're not really well designed to when it comes to psychically. So If, you were to use a pair of sunglasses. You talk a quite significant number of come forward, and so we took something of a similar concept to that we it to take something which naturally sits on the head, and it doesn't really. Interfere with the forward vision, which is kind of the main thing that we really wanted to optimize for, and because obviously as a cyclist. You can't really call something useful to a cyclist of stop shooting. We'll see what's happening ahead of you. So, one thing we spent a lot of time was the optimization of the mirror. So the way the is work, they have an affiliate integrated angled mirror, so it's the first time anybody's trying to develop a lanes like this, which is effectively a two part lens with one part of being an internal mirror coating. So the recordings actually mostly transparency allows you to choose where you can focus your your vision, so we've got one or two little. Videos on the kickstarter page which she can, which will explain this and kind of demonstrate that, but it's. It's really hard to describe even visually how the glasses work without giving somebody a pair I mean. Callum can attest this when he tried the media Scotland thoughts because. As a human, you have the ability to choose where your your visual focus lies. If you choose to look in the mirror portion then you're able to see what's coming behind you and if you choose to through the Bush able to basically just see straight through it, so it's it's got a lot of functionality in terms of just giving you the choice I mean. That's kind of one of the main things that behind glasses of really brought forward to brought into sharp relief is the ability to give control back to cyclists in a way which they haven't had before because. One thing we say hello is the every other vehicle is required by law to have rear view mirrors and fundamentally cycler life, no good options at this point apart from getting a very painful neck. The number of people who've message me in the campaign just to say I cannot tell you. Happy I'm going to be having turned my stiff neck anymore to see what's going on behind me isn't credible. Plus, there's an interesting little artifact based on human vision. Which is that? This is an interesting little area, which will not not not most people are aware of so if you take your actual fool visual field, most people can see something like hundred and seventy degrees, looking straight ahead of them, but in terms of the part of your eye, which is hd. That's effectively. The size of your thumbnail so if you put your arm outstretched and look at your thumbnail, that's the size of your visual field, which is hd right so if you look back as we call it classically I e over the shoulder, then you're looking at the corner of your eye right and I mean everybody who's ever seen a monster corner, their bedroom new happen to the coronary awry because the corner here is not a good way of actually tailing for what's actually there so with hindsight. Hindsight glasses, you can use the HD Parv your so it's effectively a whole upgrade in terms of the visual clarity. You can use to identify what's behind you, so this means when you're using a bear hindsight glasses, you can look behind you and you can see the number plate of the car. You can see the driver's texting or the the number one use the I find so far is to see if a driver has actually acknowledged either the I'm breaking or I've made a turn signal. So. Did you see the application of I mean? We're talking earlier before we start recording about how would appear now where a lot of people are either coming back to cycling, or they are taking up cycling for the first time, and obviously confidence and safety is a big part of that, but then you come from you know the elite level of the SPOL-. Can you see this these appealing to everyone across the spectrum? Yeah for sure I think to two segments off a little bit from the performance aspects like I. I spent most of my career either with my. Chin on my shoulder, looking behind me, which is a big skill in track cycling. For lops Italian and quite nice, not to Contorno neck and stop position after every training session, and the other major fundamental element was it was focusing on maintaining a new dynamic position and a biomechanically efficient position. Now all of that all of that work is essentially then useless by the time the twist your body to look behind you. So, that's where I can kind of see the performance benefits with with his thoughts, and then when it comes to your commuter hobbyists. Club later. I just think. You know it's an issue of of of safety I think. Evelyn's experienced that close past moment. Most of us can think you know a shit. Alex had the foresight to be able to develop thoughts, which actually talk mathematically fundamentally. Has This problem? And I appreciate the law of. They're very fashion-conscious them. There's a there's a reason why you don't see. A high vis vest. But fundamentally these glosses look like any other ordinary glosses, not going to have a clump on Miller to the site of the handlebars. You know we're going to have to charge batteries for leave you camera. It's simply over the box they need to go. The. Cycling Kostas supported by Science in sports. Science and Sports.

So who bought bike over to you? Yeah, let's get started and really we're going to start at the end of the story for the British team. What bike the recent change in UCI rules last year banned trade teams from competing in the truck World Cups, and that's spelled the end for the likes of what bike and the Dutch team beat he also have heard of. But with every challenge that had been turned to the team in the past. These guys just saw this as another opportunity. So just a couple of weeks ago. They would you to have been up in altitude, attitude and Bolivia to make an assault on pretty much. All the track records out there. The last three months they've been intensively and specifically training with justice in mind, and everything had been dedicated focused on this goal with three outs, training camps, thousands of hours of combined trading testing over the last couple of years, and all of that had been building towards their skull, pulling off even one of these records that they were attempting to break. While, it would have been one hell of a way to go out and really would have finished quite literally on a high for the team, except never got that chance to see what was possible here we hear from Pirate Cal Gordon Damn Bigham and John Archibald about what did happen. Days and ten training is normal and then about on our fifth day. Tannery from the Canary Islands went into. Spain. And then all of a sudden. We are not airbnb to as much as about Seattle and the. Than you know, you're running, a generates Utah a watching the top. Or share. Your. Basically we'll washing gels pulse just living very basically style your. Is Not leave. Like lock. Your instruct and features that they were they were. Taking. Them Spain and other European countries just before a couple of days before we, we laughed, we also got the news the The, basically the. The complex in Bolivia. Velodrome as was being used for. Covert patients and the record attempts were were so. It was called. A. Real answer contracts for all of us because. The train training heart than we couldn't Trae, and then we'll think Kmart. How do we? Keep, keep ourselves if we can't get it out the front door and then eventually. The news broke that we we won't build her. Go Out and actually. Have a crack at the record. So that was yeah, that was pretty. Pretty tough for all of us, but again we were just happy to. At the end of that guy got home safe And, we're quite. quite lucky that we could come back here. We did the SELF QUARANTINE IN FOR COUPLE OF WEEKS In and then. When when our? When our separate ways! Flight Thursday quite funny. 'cause we'll wait reluctant to leave and. Eight were lucky to get up late because it was one of the law. And leave the island and got it could possibly still be there and I so. You think ultimately. Zone Customer O.. You're moving. Even wanted. Could even that the way because of Eaten Vietnamese? Thousand. Devours learn your out the yet they hope the both. I guess a lot of people about these the same movement to. The about. The between luckily to in the very. Even. Way Three thousand big. Roundell. Not Looking for. It really was a brutal ends to what has been a dream and whirlwind journey over the past couple of years. And this podcast we wanted to tell the story from the humble beginnings to being on the cusp of breaking world records, but of course we also wanted to speak out about that tech. So we spoke to the chief nerd and the real technological driver behind him. What bike as it's now known about the inception of the team and how they manage to take on the world? Here's Dan Bigham. Under. Strive upon when you alright teen not yet. In charlestown. Variety. We wanted to track that winter. Twenty six eight so the national. Seventeen. Trading all. More than that it just. The two of US find that I've got. An Spending time on the track so to realize that we pretty wild and probably if you guys in we can. Go the team saying. I already people in mind Donate who is look? For. His psychology degree. It'd be a great idea Jordan and Jackson he's fine. He was in committed. Sunday gabby got. Could be the he comes again. Some results I it. I that a pay check of who? I think Jack was quite cage games enjoying the routine the following years. Not. Cartoons I they will go that. We'll win and we. Came here and have to pull out to see Jackson drove. On the same? he came back into. So you do not. What is not really well After of new each year. He was written in China time and he used to. Come back to. Maybe Convention. He came by late December on down. The track met four weeks together as a team and. Twenty, four, two, four four. Nationals He's Pretty Cobra records the. yeah, it was shown. as by successful. Kids off the Batmobile we. Went Way. On the road. Kept trading race. Taking didn't think too much about Husky until we. Came back the right that said well, what are we? To how do we step up? We woke up it but no house rock nest. Hugh emails knows about you think goals found out. We'd miss deadline by. Demons! Register the. TRAE team. the came back Ted Loyd. He can get together two weeks. We'll let you Beth. It's five thousand pounds US All the details of need by that and as a great rule. Redrafts credit cards have announced just finishing unique Niger actually. With money and yeah. Five. Weeks. the. Essen. Love asking around and. The other became was nominated. Team Takes Kiss the concrete foundation. A charity based didn't. Mean nothing, can. Members of Congress. WHO IS AUDI? Green castaway from. In Two Thousand Twelve yeah, by the way we didn't have any commercial sponsorship to make more sense. Rations than ever charity now he was keys to how on the Medicare side and mystical stuff roundabout show is really helpful to in. Access to. Trade Accountants and just a county where I was committee beneficial. Thing he works committee our throw. In Kosovo, definitely. Just like. All of the. Time we didn't think of. Anything more than that. We woke up said it'd be good. Then let's see what happens, but I never had any easy prohibitions. If continually well, let's get well. Challenge breaking mode recco trying to get. Out just such hits as well as we count as professional as we can. Moments! There's if you followed the team's progress over the is, we'll know that are famous. Pushing the limits of the UCLA roles I spoke to Dan about this, and he had something really pretty interesting to say about rules. Over things again open to make sure there is. They. Even back in two thousand sixteen take steadman I was thinking very great thing I was. A little bit more detail kissed on the equipment side incision I didn't. Most worst things like ourselves so hundred. Back because. I was reading the. Dog with that so yeah, it's something about. Getting the full one day I went to say he's a key portrayed as thousand while. You kind of get a lot of. Good bench the protesters problems to rule books and regulations to how to tackle them how to? Read the rules with his approach. Benefit other people might not. Intervene with an intention the. Actually gets. Push across. Be So spirit very much. Just words on the paper if you can read them in a different way to get. that. We've I. Don't mean stay sets. Inhibiting failed to make the. Basically. Invested in reworking this I bring him up. Now. I thought that was pretty interesting. I think listening to that really articulated the thought processes behind the way. This team has just pushed the limits of the rules. There isn't even a need to tara the rule book. You can just twist it and turn a little bit to make it. Read the way that you wanted to. And, that being said some of these rule pushes clearly push the UCI to their limit as well and the point when they pushed back. Here's what Dan had say about some of the biggest challenges and frustrations of trying to push the rules to breaking point, and half the UCI pushback and change their rules as a result. In for straightening. Cable I. Think Every problem just. Not and Regulations change have been around extensions and handlebars and rise it so for ten things that we've always looked Pistons circumnavigate away around like ten cents to rule by having Longa pods sticking phone. high-ranking angles holding on with one thing. Always kind of little consent they. My Benny tied into maintenance back into a corner. Even while we were. In delayed off bullpen talk. About what we together a new baseball riser and extension system, and we went to office, woke up and mentioned about three days. I changed the regulation the eventually One poverty. It was quite quickly goals studied. Bit Frustrating at the time, but then hear about your. What do you think? Maybe it's better and never found? Hit the. Manufacturing Research. That means new consoles horse. We designed in about three days. Kind of a quick brush new regulations we can do. Component because. Some types of Russia to do things differently tennis gang Mo- performance say I. Think has been the case over the past three seasons where they always kate. have to make. At the product. What quite I plan for me. Particularly is how the rule changes are forcing such a high turnover of innovative design and a number of design iterations everytime rule changes. This team just goes Nah. Okay. We'll do that. And how can we do it better? Yeah, absolutely and. See how that partners of stepped up the so many passionate people surrounding the team who just want to see them go faster, and that is the exact same way that they approached actually writing the team. Back in the twenty seventeen national championships, which is where they break onto the scene, and they just one medal, laugh, right and center. They had this crazy approach where they just burnt man one of their four man team in the first four or five laps. It wasn't something that had been seen before and competition, and it really broke the mold of how to ride the team. And won the other nations soon began to try and imitate, although not necessarily with the same success that who what bike had seen. when they first started joining was writing for one position and writing. Four or five blocks in bailing from that decision. That develop slightly and starting at one. GonNa team to starting at Monto. Johnny was to and then Don. And Joni would write four laps. Unveil their so certainly. There's very few people are nobody really a writing single turns strategy where you only had front once. And so just johnny, writing one turn unveiling after then hot. All of us, pulling three to four lot turns to get to the lane without hitting the front once and so it was a very different strategy. What be seen? Turning fact, the forest and then particular when. We. Struggles with. The off the start laying monfort. You know quickly enough. Started consuming. Totally and you strategy where? One would start the race that drop to the by Hawaiian off the first line drawings on three physician, so you would fill the gap I left. The that was stops. Totally. You know you and other anyone's anyone's coffee, not not scenario and We find out that like throwing. Don't necessarily Ultimo positives. Fascination about appropriators you know related developed it to where we started. We can do anymore but that was the thing was. We were trying to use it. Nobody else seems to be. Well, whether the not something we're trying, and then those are very straights, so turns shocked when half maybe to turn people like Charlie Chaplin. Four four and a half turns so it was yeah I think there's a there's a lot to learn. What rotten! Has Really Funny. I was trying to love any were saying about you. You know you missing your star. Remember the videos and the guy is taking the view because I mean you're so obviously. You're so valuable in the team pursuit and it was just that challenge of getting off the start line. Quick enough so that you were in line. Assistance Your Life flashing for your eyes. I mean you can't believe it. Or Not for the most. Technically the easiest to stop from contributing three writer. Close that gap, unlike just Washington right away and the whole. The whole thing was just like it was it was. Don't take get the start line and thank. Today's melt the day. John didn't happen and. You know. They reached a point where they ought to change strategies adopted. So that I could gallon. Aman eventually once with long enough. Tons of training and what food? Anymore I did it for season, and in the second season to do it, but there's some daunting moments special, Unwelcome Cup, right central meal for back by looks like fifty different research. And then I'm writing with US last race because was gap from. About their and writing speeds are just crazy. Meantime. Heads and nobody teams eve I'm youth. What's going on Because? Dan, Shea hold because. It ruins old team. Like special I thought when you accelerating up to speed, and then you wanNA second speeds at. Someone hold early into the race just discovers. Old. Of the race, so that was my main aim was like. Do not check old old. About his personal struggles get enough. The start line at the London woke up an event which saw them take a glorious gold medal in an exciting final with Belgium. I think it raises quite an interesting point. The other day you can find as much speed as you like and save as many watts as you can with all the gear, but unless you put in the hours, it's no substitute for put in the hours of work is so you need to combine all this together with the test in and all that equipment and see and finding out what works for you? Because without just one of those things, you just not gonNA, make it to the top. Yeah, absolutely I completely agree with you and I spoke to a few of the riders about their thoughts, on which of these technological aspects that they that were available to them through the team gave him the biggest advantage after joining the team, and I'll say now. It was pretty interesting to hear the varying opinions first off his newest recruit Kyle Gordon's experience of his biggest technological game changer for his performance. I would say the it'll take. Take things you know something on. Like I could never do fail to know how to do the equipment to do it. I am a nick. As soon as on. Donald Do gimmes a vase, the no, she'll connect. For do not, needle testing. and. Humid online stuff, so it was like it was just you know you can change harder you on. You know the famed. What's your position equipment and then you know? That's the way you will also I you know I'll be not. The biggest. Biggest. Getting to Be What do ladle tasting on yeah. and. On equipment, you know. Yes, equipment came after all between. Acid numerous you know. There might not work for. Everybody you know, so. It was like finding the thing that I suit right helmet. Right Shoes pedals that my body position, so that was the. I found. In intensive actual numbers. When you're scrapping the reduction in drag coefficient that you experience from changes in position. What did that actually equate to? In terms of power saving? What's on the track? Tall from my position when I walked up with my. My Bake. Onto the new bike and manipulation Helms I think it was roundabout. Fifty Watts single was the festival also saves you know. Which is a moss chunk of time. Am I couldn't tell you the exact amount of time. I'm not Kinda. Guy But. Definitely Eh. Definitely the different. Mean to fifty watts just huge. It's absolutely massive. It's like the difference between. An amateur who hasn't trained in a professional he trains. Oh, maybe in women's level can be. It can be more than could be a lot more than that obviously. It's a huge momentum. That, you can save just from you know without actually doing any more training, which is amazing. Yeah. Criminals them. All Day every day, but no to go. Walking cleaning. Pick him out. You know I'm onto month on lunch up. And hit certain abilities marginal gains you know to. Be. Taken Leila. Bata shoe you know did show her Bach and. No one cycle it altogether new fake and. You on the bars you know. Sort of came the. Tell the the benefits you know course to moving into into the house in in the first place. And then it was great to. Be In there and seal the tech and. The all the cool care, the are never never been able to have my hands on before as a students are this so that was great. Now tag that's we're really talking because that's obviously what we talk about along this podcast, so say once he moved into the house. You know what kind of things were you really able to your hands on the the you know you went able to use previously. So this this will probably surprise you. I'd never used A. Pound to. so I'd never been able to. Yet just analyze my data. It was very much before out of out of my power meter on the road to do Monroe Training on the turbo, but actually on the truck. This I'd still say not not many people have on track pound Hands on one of those actually seeing. Seeing the numbers audited was just yeah was so useful and then secondly Because the team's sponsor by no-show connect. We were able to do some. Do some of my own my own testing, which again I'd never done it very much eyeballed. Previously and then we've. Done Voice Dams always very much about teaching writers out to how to do. Things are not just doing everything for them. Because if you're involved in the process you buy into it more so. Out Go down and every week to do a different era test testing different things. To optimize my position, so that was one of the first things I did when I joined, the team was basically get me optimized in the superposition. Just shows the importance of testing and again we come back to your favorite subjects CD. Yeah absolutely, and also brings in maybe the need for this new body rocket that you were talking about the top of the show and that competitor who are already out there the no show connect, and Osha connect is. Something that team have been using it allows you to measure your CD in real time on the track, and obviously these guys had access to the track as well and so they were able to do this track testing day in day out measuring testing different things everyday finding out what was the best. Is this position better? Is this position as the skin suit better, these wheels better. And really volume and intensity of testing is what enabled them to kind of make these gains well. I hate to stop you in your airflow there. Let's see. Let's move on to have a bit more of a look at some of the more specific equipment that the team have been used in I. Think one of the things that so fascinate in has been the look of the team for years and one of the things that stands out most is probably the image of the guys in their famous flying saucer like helmets. Do Look as something. Of, a B. movie beasts of a sci Fi b-movie basically. Yeah, it's funny. I think the guy say themselves that that we're the guys that look really weird, but we go really fast and these helmets as their fondly known by the team, the skid leads are something that have become iconic and really just associated with the team. And I think it's really interesting. How pioneered the use of this ten year old helmet? And when they first started using it, people didn't even recognize that it was illegal illegal helmet. Here's what Dan Bigham had to say about using it in competition. Investment companies in. Nineteen. Just looking at the legends like see now, I think came up. He's I. Can you hear me? Please is not possibly legal. Yes behind the helmet out favorite decade. UNAVO- but yeah it wasn't responding to. Provide them to talk I've been having fun. THEM BACK COW. but yeah, that was just one of them we tested. Condition there was nothing nuts. Scared, use them, but yet. He was the head then then they became. Dr. Cohn has been used prompt. Harding get hold of nowadays we up about twenty five then, but we realized quake and a well known out together you. Know copious and yet if I got up enough, I think retail about three hundred and. Mother. That's brilliant. I mean that's a classic example of people. Always thinking that newer is better and actually the best thing is to test everything and then find out what's best, not just assume that that something is best because the marketing. Info says say but yeah, that's that's really cool. and. Having? People look at what the trade unions human. Humming looked into the hood. Will then. Some nations that writing president because the patriotic, but not the best in and. Coming gration for. Professional riders that Awry. Equipment or slow equipment than previous editions because with money your back. In the rations, we. We, CAN A. COMPATA- muster that even vet lead that on the whole we just find. Then mighty. Is Not great just what we were saying before test everything. Find out what's best. What's fastest and then try and get those skies on board as sponsors, and that's exactly the same story as what happened with Argon to the team started using these bikes because they found out that there was a small Arrow advantage over the civil civility fours. They'd been previously using so. They bought all the frames that they needed with the help of a financial sponsor, and then Argon the next year, hearing about their story, and what they were doing decided to get involved, gave them custom. Dr Betas paint jobs, and as many frames needed a united daub us. Sure, most people know what is I know it really well growing in the East Midlands. Dob Eight US the wonderful. Dhabi yeah, the People's Republic of Dob Adolph's the home of cycling in Britain and you can buy t show with us. Leg on on an. It's like bit of Jive towards British British cycling and cycling in Britain up in Manchester, but own affairs raises a bit of an interesting point about professional writers and the challenges of having to ride kit. which maybe you know isn't actually the fastest out that or at least isn't the fastest for you. So an example from the women's side is Linda Villains and back in two thousand fifteen richmond world championships. She decided to use an unbranded track frame in the world time trial championships, and her team United Healthcare. We're sponsored by Villier. She didn't actually tell the team at the time, and so the first thing that they knew of it was when it was on the TV, so, they had a bit of a shock. Their sponsors were pretty mad and then more recently. That's the with Rohan Dennis, and famously at last year's toward a Franz. He left the tour the day before the time trial, owing supposedly to disagreement about time trotting equipment, so it can be a real challenge when ultimately all you want to do is go as fast as you possibly can, but. But restrictions surrounding contracts can stop. Doing that was the question of whether you could lose grand tour because you have to wear the leader's Jersey and a time trial, and possibly you could. We've seen those videos of Chris. Room getting stitched into that not very arrow skin suit at the tour De, France here's what willpower to say about his experience of getting a custom laser for it skin suit and the subsequent testing, and the reality of how much time can be lost with substandard equipment, so skin suits are from WHO Baltic Aunt. When we initially went to to silverstone where The base they initially did Body scan of of on our bike, so when both? One of the guys attack. They went rounders. While we're on all bikes. We were actually were actually topless at the time. So of the see, you can see the content of your skin and absolutely everything, and how your position on this full body scan. Effectively takes takes the exact measurements. Probably. I can tell you the accuracy But Practically of your of your skin folds as well and Anti gives you. Yeah, this perfect. Perfect, Three d three D model, and they just basically the allowed them to design costumes to do. Specifically if your body shape and in your position. And then we were able to then go and test different different fabrics in different skin suits on different Reuters and we found. We were four riders riding same helmet same box extremely Simla positions. If you see is in photos, sometimes, it's hard to. Distinguish which Roger Switch. But we're all. Coming out with slightly different results based on North Breaks based on the angle of our or arms, the size of all by set. If if you know some of the guys, we bigger biceps, which is which aren't they. They require a slightly different fabric. To Breida's what myself the Scott Slot. Skinny by biceps just. bit based on how the is as flowing off each individual rider, so it was it was actually quite is. Extremely fascinating to be there to be able to test these things on how specific suits for! The each each individual rider. On I think it's. More, that direction that skins who are. Basically the they're having to be designed for the specific ride riding. There were some some soups like the. The, who four zero nine that's! That's an off-the-peg and seemed to test fast on all of us But then. There were the soups that. To just test slow or quick depending on the shape and size of the person probably. How how similar that person is to the person that develops the suit in the first place. Over Four K. to pursue, it'll be about. You could, you could get the variance about ten marks which I'm not sure how. Not Sure Outer. I guess we'll ask down and what that means. I mean. We you'd you'd. A second. Why for each each Reuter you have to do your own testing. And again we tested all the suits in the tunnel, and then we got back and tested them back on the track. Your hold you position saw it differently when you put now. Your power and then again the are different variants. In not so that's why. You just have to just test test test test and then re-test. A few more times just to really. Ready know for sure, but definitely was with skin. Susan's. It functions you. You'll put on so many different skins, hoops and then And you can, you can just pull out completely different different answers, and I'm what was bizarre was. myself and Johnny will were wearing the same skin to. John. Was Really Fast in the fall zero nine. And, so it was Carl, and then we had a the new Tokyo skin to come out. And That was supposed to be the quickest quickest thing thing around I tested. Really quick on John, then Johnny which are completely different body. That intestines quakers the WHO vo-tech one. On me, so it was just. It was just quite quite baffling. Ready because. These guys have all rated. He really know what they're talking about. Even then there's things that just. Throw. Because ed just isn't yeah, it's. Yeah as long as It's based on to your position that you ride in the shape of the person. And I think now it's more or less impossible to you can design quick suit. That's quick on. Most people but ready. If. Each rider needs needs to their own suit. Develop into them. Really, that's the way that it will end up going forward. And then again, that's then. The people will teams of the most money all want to choose to invest in that thing that will be the ones that. They're coming out on top. Spunk as You know we talking here about four K. team seed, and obviously the margins and team pursuit us. Oh, so finding tons of ECHINACEA last, and but you know when you when you look at those numbers about the skin suit, and then you scale that up to a road time trial. In the men's time trial, which are longer, you could be looking at forty five seconds, which is massive. Absolutely massive. Mike This all. Talk about certain certain writers having to wear the leader's Jersey on the. Final Fun arrived of the grand toll on losing out. On the ground, told by to know could be a couple of seconds or Or, small margin spur. Really they've just. They've lost themselves that seconds in Tom Troll by just riding the leader's Jersey so it's. Yeah it's bonkers and how you would go about changing that. Maybe you just gotTa. Make sure each each team. has has a has a skins who or something. In the leaders, colors and brundage applaud them. Their own skin to alternate. Days absolutely bonkers. Is Bunkers I mean we had. We'll saying that. Maybe there was a ten watt variants between the top-end skin seats on different writers. But when I spoke to John, he told me that the difference. A bad skin, suit and good skin seat. Can Be as much as thirty watts, and certainly for him, it was the biggest gain the he found out all of the things that he tested whilst he was in the team. The final bit of tax I wanted to focus on is the team's choice of whales is pretty clear from speaking to Dan that they never use equipment just for the sake of it, not they never get an equipment sponsor because getting funded. So, it was really interesting to see the music wheel brand that hasn't been in the public eye until they hide it duct. And even now after the proven success of the wheels, they seem pretty rare. About the team's partnership with brother Walker Wheels, and how the initative. them to fulfill their own mantra of task test test without the associated costs of buying so many different wheel sets. Tropic National. Speaking with come need people they had and how they can help us. On the first one that I teach. Who designed the? On me, the. Built wheel very different. How? Do, you have spoked wheel all common company wheel. Piping with negative Punky Matrix tried to win the rock solid wheel like you. Know Kid Nichols onto any we allow I'm pretty solid, but knowledge radiating soft and people not quite awed his. Just, five o'clock. Plastic Matrix. into the skin and kind of in a way little bit today. The Dynamo Drinks folks become a bit more puck. He'll climb welded light new. Strings from a hub today been best and it just means likes. If we'll of and then you can find average talk, you can take data profiles your. Without worrying about the Turkey. Side, the wheel? We've just about the wheel. Since two thousand seventeen helmets just continue interested without have to spend money on new modes own education. Right not very. It. Doesn't appeal to me. lizzy living with my teammates but I wonder what difference it made having. All the guys live in together under one roof clearly for them. Mas of benefit and you know you fight like minded people to be around. Just make. You know a lot easier training. You, know Betty health moving in any way, but. You, know if you ever do of. IBM Old. Can do it the day you. On the boys go and you're right, I mean. You know. So have not accept. This. You know I'm not guide that I'm good. Just make seven so much easier. You know and you know. Let them fight people you've got. Brains to go before you know thaw, leave, idea or Confused about something you, can you know? Go fingertips. You know just GonNa. Knock the door that in a chop. and. Probably, the biggest one is helping, Don and you know. In the same house you know in the thing. Need to know. Tops the top of the answer and. then. Opened duty many times optimizing goals to help us. Put an action. That's not. AM. So, yeah, don't you say like? That's benefit to. That was kyle. Gordon there and I heard it mentioned so many times when I was talking to the guys that having done there on hand was such a big factor in the ability to constantly improve. Having Don's brain was about the best of tech. The teams could get their hands on really. But something that I want to snap out which was a little bit more complicated is. How do you get the whole team of writers to peak at the same time for the same event? Here's what John Archibald say. The hardest bit in the South is Hugo full guys changed a tiny. Little peacful for one or two getting base as you call one night and the failing day of Rennes and finals, and then I'm not sure anyone would agree we find. Any day where all four or five of US mournful You can pick it rise where certain people that's very good rights, people very odd rights. It's never sees case off four five weeks for the one one event, and then thing specialty in himself. The nature of having four events in the year where you're trying to speak to them. And say you have a the? Series Year! Katie nineteen look as odd. Parents first of all and then literally the next week we went to town on race there. We had a two week break and went to Berlin race there and then the next week. You're racing in London, so there's you're talking. Races in a very short space of tiny. Where was very little? Time, to fix things that are wrong, and even of your peaking and tapering, it's just whole whole. Side of it is very complicated I. Don't know she's national governing bodies. Sure they have the same issue. Where you get free writers, you know picking on home, and then the might be not oneness. There's no Beta. Just. Never. striper protection, but these things really. Know and I guess when they are it four. Danish thirty, forty four good conditions get home. They'll wonder. Happen. Just happened when you wanted to engage in London. We're in a position where we'll focus on solidly When saves perfect? We all be where you know. Woke up going home of. We're favorites. We want to win. It We've had some good experiences asteroid one kinda done for the first time in Paris the whole things are building two point where you look at Linden going right this chance that and You? Can See US people. And Look Forward Front Halston. End Up. Beaver I tell you I say fine with Belgium and came right down to the wire and. Believe so You know the way Oh went. Knocked on fairy tale, ending is a great season in terms of. Within. The vet woke up went to Switzerland's we. For. Christmas time on the road both times times. sea-level world record ninety than. I was where things just get. A bit more came less more or less holding more of a well as his Take another step. level. Serious Lesson I. Wish I was always. The team were aiming to break the team. She will echo that shoot world record before they got to do. It was actually lower. It wasn't it by Denmark. Dramatically and with what seemed to be pretty basic equipment. Yeah so what happened? That was done. Really gave himself a bit of a headache. He had been working with the Denmark team, pursuit team, and with two other aerodynamicists as well there. And With his help, they really completely smashed the world record time and ended up taking three seconds, which in track times massive off the world record time so his Dan, talking about the bitter sweet taste of success of the Danish world record time. I thirty joy that without weekends. Just, outrageous knowing. The most to come as well it was. Pretty amazing but I think law that comes back in the. Team is focused on doing things right they kind of. Spotty. Invasion people biking away now. We have good. Customer. Folks Knockin and my thoughts into this this three of US basically doing the I take the new ball by can. Book. been a week twelve days typesetting in it, you something, we'd have been able to afford to Yeah, they. They just got the map however. To Bible the giants. Funding quite nights, if you. Just. Go with in a way. Yes, great seeing a record attendance in Detroit viruses really hit not even Honda. Day, pretty forty four stretch goal, but he didn't go. Try you'll never any end up, did a forty five or forty six, and that that's no contended that we try to make. It down because I know what the date and how they achieved, it was just. Got On the show window. With them We might be pretty good team to save this, but this this next replacement for putting out big big on this. You can always get people more. Arab economies make. Gus I I think that was why they cannot outrage occupy the. Viruses in the West one. Thing very diverting fall back in March and always. Comes in preparation. That We. GonNa I was very. We come. Out Boys. Taking some hell, the kissing place timing. Sad. Stuff that goes! On the venue you you've never been to. Speak up We were ready to roll in the Coin Lockdown Eggert Henry. Now a making kidding. Europe and the. Night will go to. He got those went. Go real short. When Denmark went so fast in chapters, team said so before that point in the world record, four eight and then astounded. To? Open appreciate needed to. Three or four to be something is. Certainly resource doing anything before seven to beat her, and then then we're going three forty four You know, change the game massively on the thing. Know those ourselves that they will aggressive. Make significant gains this question. In a time. You know with A. Coming out record, go again and again in just the nature world records just always fallen always bruins. Certainly as it was exciting, chasing the thrill of writing Stein's. So Sti h-h-how. Area so for the time. Being out is clearly off question. About the possibility of breaking news records at sea level surely to pursue. Rich, that's you level. The way. far the rest of the world. Certainly think a niche shop and they start writing those times. the feel of things, the ID neo guys like Austin for example was. On a second behind fleet begun in the in the World Championship final, and he kinda showed that it was. Born. Nobody's capable off Ashley. East. Rockaway, the rights. oops was four minutes for. Berlin for three. That's I think now tight. these records suddenly. It it certainly cited for me once you realize that you know there's no ashes. Develop Jones has no access to JEN's access to. Flights to train and Tom. Strauss cheered this just even sea level world record getting available in doing these things the whole logistics the protests are some. relief for you, and it's just even if you could figure out a way to engineer the protests and get it get it. Gets the ball rolling and Organiz it I think a lot motivation for me. Personally has subsided for not. Can. Looking at other targets for the time being. Relishing idea of selling some new RAHVAM was being decided last few years where you move straight from track to road. Rate you're. Chasing the. Best to to rebuild. You'll want it would. Benefit you as a writer, so sports that is this whole situation is in terms of. The! Austin nationwide. Poker one of our situation. Second? Gets. Worse or store in the world, interesting to hear about how the motivation varied for the ride is. Such a shame, they couldn't fulfill that done so much. It's such a short time, but. It really I really wanted to. It culminate in those record attempts. Are they going to try anything at all. Well Yeah, it is interesting to hear how different writers have different motivations. And we heard we heard John Talking that, but then told me he was still planning to attempt record when velodromes opened up, and Kyle was saying how he still wants to go for some of the Scottish masters records, and he's just as motivated as ever, and how actually there's a long-term loose plan with Scottish cycling aiming. Towards medals at the Twenty Twenty Commonwealth Games in Birmingham well, that was just a small snippet of the crazy whirlwind story. That was the development of team. Who What bike? UCI has enabled their rise and demise, but will is determined that this is the end for the team. Speaking to you and And keep I try to hammer on the door and a knockdown. Those those barriers to. Try and compete at is level, so it's yes. It's rubbish Hopefully. in the future will come to the sentences and we'll be able to. Get the opportunity to stay So No. Dan is still very much. Massively. Involved in cycling are making a difference will tour teams all over the place and embiid employed by different teams. But what do you think the legacy of team who what bike is? I think legacy is so far reaching. It's impossible to measure. Can you attribute all of the huge reduction in? Track Times over the past few years to the development, and the innovation pushed by what by can team Cagey. They were formerly known I don't know. Yes, of course, all the nations are still developing, but maybe the development wouldn't have happened quite as fast. They really have been the world leaders in things like skin suit. Skin suit development and On track testing, and just the way they have pushed it so fast, and they've pushed these designs in handlebars, and they've caused. They've been the ones that have caused the UCI to push back and change that rule, so yes, things would have developed, but I don't think think things would have developed as fast without a team like this pushing those boundaries. You've got to have somebody pushing those boundaries, and then times will fall, and so that's what I think. Their legacy is really these absolutely massive reductions in the world record times over the past four years. Well, that was a fascinating episode. We're going to leave it there. Let me tell again at the end of this month, but as we said the star, you are in racing action, so we can watch it on the BBC in the event. Call the women's Tour V., series, and yeah. I'm going to be entering beast mode. If people want to find out about it. Your twitter is probably one the best places to to, isn't it?

The Tony Kornheiser Show

"For What It's Worth"

"Previously on the Tony Kornheiser show! Little are a ferociously loyal group so it. Doesn't stuck to have. They'd probably won't be the last time they front themselves. Yeah I've got a bunch coming for it not a minute soon because I'm I'm kind of on still holding it to the vet here, so we're we're. What is what is up to? Since the last time we talked well. I mean the last. Twelve to eighteen hours I've just been doing extensive NHL playoffs preview breakdowns for my blog on the Internet, but. The Tony, Kornheiser show is on now. Alrighty, then as you know where we conduct, this podcast is. Michael Sits on one side of my uncle Benny. Table I sit on the other. I did get an email which I'll read later. wanting to know much more about my uncle Benny and I will get to that at some point. This show is going to be a little bit different today. We are going to do three guests. We're not going to do an open segment because of the news around the country and and. And the things that you have to get into a we will have Brian windhorst talking about basketball, but we'll will join US and Chris Cillizza joins us now to open the show and you are. You are in Connecticut with your mom, right? I am indeed. I drove up yesterday to bring her back to DC and to just begin the process of going through. My Dad's stuff, which is ample because he was a collector of many things, some of value, many of no value. So I've been spending I literally spent the last twelve hours going through his trading card collection in his coins, which is. There's just so much, but I actually think you know. Here's the thing. If you buy stuff twenty five years ago and forget about it and then you come back to. It's both interesting and potentially valuable, so that's been good, because that was the thing to the extent that we did things together trading cards baseball cards. Basketball cards was a thing that we shared so it's actually a nice. Way To kind of reconnect there still value in baseball I mean. It's because it's thirty years ago. That apple said there was value in baseball cards. Is there still value in baseball the answer to that broadly as no but I think there. Rookie card shirt. I mean there's value in a few and there's value in like old Michael Jordan cards. The baseball basketball cards appear to be worth something but again. Were basketball cards. Yeah. I've got a lot of old guys who wound up not being any good so If you need page after page after page of well, they were good like I've got like five hundred Ronnie. Cycling cards just in case you need those some my feeling is as Michael can attest I have my own junk I. Don't want somebody else junk. I'm basically a hoarder at this point. I can't get rid of anything that I ever collected as a child, and and it's all junk. To My my dad I, mean I I live in I grew up in rural Connecticut for some reason. My Dad had to gigantic safes in our basement. Which opened yesterday to find? They are chock-full. Literally leave like Florida stealing of coins which I was planning. To have them appraised, but. Can't I'm not even doing that, so he was a collector of things. Watches cards, coins, ugly wooden sculptures. Pictures of graveyards with clowns I only wish that last one was a joke. It's deadly serious they they were there. I actually have them stacked in a room that I used to sleep in talk about a nightmare fuel of your childhood. So. It's not going to be a one day process to go through all of it, but I'm I'm just really up here to pick her up and drive her back so when you talk about millions. Yes, like are these legal tender coins. You need a nineteen o nine Penny I got. Those things may be valuable. This is the thing I think they well I. Hope that there's at least some value in them. Since basically, my entire inheritance was spent on them. But I don't honestly know like we. We need to have someone come in and appraise it because I. Just I mean. There's thousands and thousands and thousands of coins. Wow I know. I don't have anything. I, don't have anything like that I may have. Come coming back from England I may have brought some coin. I have no idea where it is I. Check it from the Olympics. We. Don't have anything to give Michael you but. I guess a lot of junk that he'll just get rid of. What did you play golf with your voice. Okay so from like Nice Dad Memories. To to me being a being a nightmare, we play golf every weekend now because the boys are getting into golf, and it's the thing you can do sort of now with social distancing so. The three of US played on on Saturday before I left. And I hate when they do this, but it was the three of us, and they put us with a single, which is so high in this day and age. You know because it's like very hard to interact. But anyway. We played in I was This was like a mommy. Dearest level stuff on my part like Al Gore like sighing when my kids would like to yeah, I'm I'm the worst. I'm really mad and then like a then. My older son, who's eleven didn't speak to me. for the last seven holes all been there. Yeah, and The lady who we played with. I literally thought that I was a monster. I mean after a while we just all see speaking. It was like a it was like an enforced silence it was. It was not. Let's just call it. Not My finest hour I kept like he would hit a putt short and I told you under my breath. It was really. I look forward to Michael With Buzi in the hammer like you know when they're out there little older so that there's some expectation. Because I. He'll be kinder and better than me but I. Really this is one of those moments like afterward. I did the like I. Need I need to get a grip moment I need to. I need to comment on down. It was not it was not good. Not that good. You at least competent as a golfer. Was Okay because I'm getting tips from from a great Golfer. Michael Kornheiser so I'm I'm not bad but I you know once you become filled with rage at your children. It becomes harder to execute on the tip set. So I I went downhill. I hit one into a house. At one point is fine. Everything's Fine Silver Michael and I. Play the Father Son Tournaments. Because Michael is a good player in because I'm not. If! He doesn't Birdie like in within the first three holes if he doesn't have at least one Birdie I, just think okay. We've lost. It's just no good. And when do we stop talking the third hole? Yeah, but we it back to back nine. We're better. Tone. Nine but my problem is this and I I. My kids are learning the game they to go. They're not bad. I mean they can hit the wrong I mean. There are eleven seven right. Well and they they. This is why I'm a nightmare. You're a reasonable human, but the problem is is on every hole. They'll be like they'll miss a shot in the like. What did I do wrong? Like I'm a golf coach, I'm like. Did you see me I? Hook it into a house? So it was not, it was good that I was leaving the next day because I don't think they were they were not thrilled with me and my wh. When we came home, my wife was like what did you do and I was like nothing. It's the kids fault. Let's bring them coins from all around the world. Is, my. Dad also collected antique toys. Okay, and so he has an old timey slot machine. Oh, they'll should like that. We will bring back for them that they will be ways ro-. Didn't collect anything like that I. Just collected stuff from my own life I mean I had no purpose. He stuff is junk. We have A. we have a a jukebox in the house from like nineteen forty something. Obviously I'm not taking that, but. From the NBA finals from nineteen eighty. Five. We have junk. We have stuff with my pictures on it. So let me let me fan this out into something. Because this is your job. Your job is to comment on the news of the day there is. An explosion in the country, obviously of protests it has. morphed into. Something that may or may not connected, but is all over the place. There's anger. There's frustration there are. There is looting. I don't know if they are connected. That's looting. Opportunity is different. There is an attorney general who has used the magic words, law and order, which those of a certain age remember, and so I think one of the questions I would ask is and I. Don't know how this works I. Don't Know If. This can be imposed on a federal level. Do expect military. Availability here, not just the National Guard but active military availability, or is that something that only governor can ask for so you and I have talked. We've all talked about this and I. Basically when it comes to questions that involve Donald, trump and donald trump's judgment, a effectively say anything is possible I, mean he he? I think he's uniquely unsuited at at a number of levels for a situation like this one of which is because I think he tends to make things about himself. And we do that, you know during these protests he second, he's not terribly empathetic, and by terribly empathetic I mean he's not empathetic so he doesn't. His ability to I went back and looked at some of these speeches and over the weekend. You know George. Bush, after September eleventh, Barack Obama. the murders at. The, Ame Emmanuel Church in South Carolina, where he sings amazing grace These moments wear the country needed leadership, and whatever else cynical people are about politics and the answer. They're very cynical. There are moments in which the country's sort of turns or needs a leader. You. That doesn't mean there would be no protests that doesn't mean there would not be unfortunately looted like the that doesn't solve all these things in the near term, but it suggests that there is a a better angel that exists right a common humanity, a decency that exists and and. Trump has been largely silent. He has said something about George Voids Death He is also said you know when the looting starts, the shooting starts which is a reference to an album. He says an unwitting reference, but a reference on the West to an Alabama sheriff who had a number of racist views that was then coopted by George Wallace in Alabama. So he either doesn't or can't understand this moment, and so donald trump by the with your law, and order, point Donald, trump has tweeted out law and order as well Tony so I. Don't do anything out I still don't think we're there yet. in terms of like military call for military troops going place, but I'll remind people. Donald Trump sent the military to the US border to the same situation, obviously, but to to deal with what he said was a caravan of illegal immigrants coming into the country so. He can send troops players You know you're right mostly I. Think I think I read this morning. That fifteen states have called up their national guard. Um to try to to keep the peace but I. He is Peter Baker who I very much admire at the New York. Times wrote a piece at essentially says you know when there's a fire, Donald Trump looks for the matches in you know as opposed to try to get out and I and I think you know. Throw a blanket over the fire and. I think that that's the reality. We are dealing with currently and that. That's why I don't think you can say. Oh, no X. He's definitely out of the question when it comes to what he will say or do next, so here's here's one of the things. I thought about last night. If I'm not mistaken, we have four living former presidents. That's right. We have Jimmy Carter. Bill Clinton and George W, Bush, and Barack Obama, all of whom. For whatever their failures and successes may or may not have been as president, all of whom are considered good men, moral men, admirable men. I've never heard anybody say anything different about the four of them and I guess I have wondered. Why don't they in conjunction? Or why don't they separately? Just go on the air, because somebody would give the mayor tongue, and take that moment of leadership, and I know you would say well. They're not the president anymore, and they have no rights well. They have no standing in terms of being able to do anything. I think they would be welcome and especially if they did it jointly I think they would be welcome. Have you heard anything like that? No. and it's fascinating I did not plan to plug this, but I will plug a book that a friend of mine named Kate Anderson. Brower just published called the President's Club, which is effectively a book about the relationships between. The four of them, and how outside of that trump is? And how the book opens with an interview in the Oval Office with trump where where he's asked. Whether he would expect to be invited to the presidential library opening which traditionally past presidents you invite all of them. He's like no. Why would he It just speaks to how far outside of it he is i. mean it is very, it is the world's most exclusive clubs are Gusta you know in terms of there's not very many of them. no one shares. No one knows what that experience is like unless you've sat in that chair behind the resolute desk, right? there is also an and I, think maybe to your point here to the detriment of the country. There is also a huge resistance sort of. It's kind of like baseball's. Unpublished rules that govern the game. There's a huge sort of wall that suggests that past presidents do not entail two selves in public affairs. Obama has taken a significant heat from the left for not being more. Vocal in his criticism of Donald Trump now, you would have to have not be thinking person to not grasp that Barack. Obama does not Condone Donald Trump's presidency I. mean it's. It's essentially an attempt to reject everything barack. Obama, did as president, but it is not done Obama's put out a statement. About George Lloyd's death. I mean th. They have done things. Don't you think everybody in America would watch it? Oh, Gosh, of course, everybody would watch. Four past presidents I mean even if you do mean, let's not forget here and this is in this book as well. It details look George. W Bush via George H, w Bush and Bill Clinton are are friendly. Towards W Bush and the OBAMAS are friendly. Whatever you think of them politically they found. Sort of a connection there And yes, of course they would, but again. This is one of these on unspoken rules. Is that you don't? Criticize your predecessor you. Barack Obama put out when he did the commencement S- Back he was critical of of trump's handling of crowbars A. He didn't mention Donald Trump's name all of a sudden. You've got all these people coming out and how Mitch McConnell dairy. You know this is a in, so that's a much little thing than a big. By all four of them, but yes I agree I again. You look people. Don't care about politicians until they care about them and this is a moment. Where we are still in the middle of a pandemic. And when total unemployment around the country and it's GonNa be next week. It's going to be you know I. Think we're looking at what we'll get the report this. At the end of this week we'll get the report for me and it could be twenty percent plus unemployment one in five people unemployed you still we have over one hundred thousand deaths. There's no vaccine. There's you know we. We continue the projection. Say One hundred and thirty, five hundred and forty thousand people dead by August fourth. And we and we have. Protests in certainly every major city in the country. Right I mean I was watching CNN last night I was watching DC from Connecticut. Fires search. You Know New York Atlanta Minneapolis Chicago. I mean you know. No sign that it would stop no and I would note to. Tony and I read this this morning. Is that the more national guards have been called up in response to this that at any time, since the nineteen sixty eight riots, which speaks to where we I mean. You won't hesitate to say it feels like the the bonds are frank. The if it I'm always a big believer in this is, this is bad. We've worked through things worse. We can get through this. There's inherent strength, but it does feel. Like there's a fraying here and we and at the top and I do think this matter is at the top. You have someone who who? is either incapable or unwilling to remind us of our shared humanity and and I. I just think that that's a that's a huge huge problem, a huge hole, a huge moral leadership. You're coming back to DC I will be back there this afternoon. Okay, good, thank you. Thank you for having. Priscilla's boys and girls whose work is available on CNN. We will take a break Brian Windhorst. See what we're doing. We're going to talk about. Politics Small P. With Chris, and certainly with Mike who is deeply and personally affected by all these things, and then we'll give you some basketball. Because we just you just can't go down and down and down.

Guarantee there will not be an election this fall. Advance Chris about this. I should have seen the email I didn't do it. Please enjoy this song by Mehan, Hotdog, engineer, Franks and beans. This is called a place to place. Colin McKinnon and Littleton Colorado, which we are grateful obviously, and he plays in Brian Windhorst was in his acre mansion at Omaha. Nebraska, which is Great. I wanted to talk about basketball. I wanted to get sort of annoyingly specific. because. I am one of those people who is not at all convinced that baseball will happen, and not at all convinced that football will happen, but who is convinced that if anything has a shot, it's finishing a season in basketball and finishing a season in hockey. Is there anything like consensus among and I? Don't use the pretentious word governors. Is there anything like consensus among the owners in the NBA I think they will get there I i. The amazing thing to me. Something happened last week. That I thought was an amazing. Development and I just don't think anybody noticed it or cared about it. It's certainly my phone up. And that was Michelle Roberts the head of the Players Union. She says it must have been casual because Ramona Shelburne. Who wrote the story sort of included it casually that she didn't feel like the players would need to take a vote. On return on the return to play plans. She thought that would what whatever they could work out with. Adam silver directly would be acceptable. And I had a couple of agents who like immediately ran to the union bylaws to see if they she could do that in. The show Roberts smart. Of course she can't. She doesn't have to take a vote on this and. The reason this is amazing, is that if they cancel the rest of the, and this is so basic Tony, but I just don't I. Don't know if everybody understands it. NBA Players do not get paychecks for the play offs. they get a bonus. If you win this title, you get a bonus money. It comes from a from television money. It doesn't come from your owner. So if they advanced right to the playoffs, they wipe out two hundred fifty nine, remaining games and six hundred fifty million dollars, and say bye bye. And that is. Not a minor thing everybody wants to play but that you're going to ask them to come into a bubble in Orlando and you're gonNA. Ask Them Potentially the play extra playoff game for this play in tournament, and so getting the players to agree to that is not going to be simple, and yet here we have the players union saying you know I think we're going to go along with it. And I just think it's show. Is That Adam Silver? Over the last six years? He's been commissioner has done such an incredible job of keeping the union feeling like they have a seat at the table. Supporting the players when it's a matter of using their platforms to talk about you know societal change or issues in society, and also supporting players with mental health concerns among other things he has built up a tremendous amount of capital, and that is helping I wasn't doing it saying well someday. I'm really gonNA need them at my side, right? It existing I think is going to help him. Get this deal. which will include sending some money back to players Obviously they're going to have to do something there, but it really is helping in this moment, the job of commissioner. Very, few people hold these titles in hockey and basketball and baseball and football. The job is to make order out of chaos. The job is when there is no consensus to draft something and sell it to everybody on both sides. That's Adam Silver's job. When I use the word, is there a plan? Adam silver has to have this plan. Nobody doesn't matter if he if he doesn't have it. It doesn't work because he is the commissioner on you. Talk about the capital that he has with the players to your knowledge. Is there a plan? Yeah, they've got several different layers of it and. With every plan, there's sub plans, so you know the biggest thing that. You know because we're tired of talking about it. And because we're so much more interested in the competition aspect, we gloss over the idea that they've gotta have testing protocol that not only will function as a way to protect these guys and their families, but it's something that they can sell. I mean I could come up with a plan. That I can't sell the players you know, and that's what's so important. And then he's gotTa have something that he can convince his bosses on. Because you know, this is something again. That's just assumed, but. She isn't an independent arbiter. He has to act as an independent arbiter, but his his his bosses are the owners. And you know that would be like if you were in a lawsuit and you were you in the you're the plaintiff. And they were the defendant and the descendants actually paid the judge. You know it's a difficult scenario for sure so they have several different roles drafts as far as as far as I can tell and they will spend this week honing it, but my expectation is that when they get the Thursday, which is one of the owners are going to vote number one when the vote becomes for the owners Adam civil will know that it will pass because he will have done his work with the owners and gotten them in line, and secondly, at least this is the plan here as we sit here on Monday. he will have a sign off from the union that it won't be like baseball where the owners dumped this plan on them and say except us that when they come up with this plan, it will be income in conjunction with the Union so that it goes through and more MO- most people will here Thursday hopefully this is the vote and the WanNa know all the details, and they will totally ignore that there's been all this deal making, and that's if that happens. Adam silver will have done a masterful job so I heard. You say this last week at some point. not not the preamble that I'm going to go through because wilpon always talks about how arrogant NFL owners are as if NBA owners are not arrogant. And I heard you talk about this that if you expand these playoffs, if you expanded by one team or two teams or four teams or teams, however many teams, you expand this by you put more people at risk in terms of health and safety, which to me is incredibly arrogant. It's why I say go to sixteen eliminate half the field every single week, and at least keep your players safe. The self interest by some owners here is, it's predictable, but it's no different than I think in the in the NFL. What do you think the odds are for keeping it to sixteen or or because of the monetary aspect of the make goods in getting to seventy games? Is everybody going to play putting more people at risk? It certainly looks like it's going to be the latter. I spent the month of April I I A story that I had published on May I. I spent the month of April talking to experts. All across the whole landscape, the whole bunch of epidemiologists and infectious, these people I talked to a former surgeon, general the Vet Murphy, who was advising the NBA. On this happens to be a big, Miami Heat, Fan who you're supposed to call general by the way you're supposed to I apologize general. Actor. in addition to all the people in the NBA talked to the guy who runs our NBA broadcasts Tim Corrigan jumped at. How. Many How many cameras can you do? This with I mean he's like well. You know an NBA finals game. We have sixty like okay. What would you do a bubble? He goes all right. Let me think about this. I spent a long time talking to a lot of people. And I practice report you know there's been ten thousand articles I understand. Nobody read it, but what I came out of that. From is that? You have to have. To do this the most safely, you have to have this tight of a bubble as possible. my co writer, who you've had on the show Tim Bontemps and I came up with twenty eight people per team like why talked to seven different NBA coaches and said, tell me your bare minimum of what you need to do, and that means that that by the way that means the head coach is gotta be out there rebounding and practices. You know he doesn't get to have eleven systems. We said you can have three assistance you know. We came up with twenty eight players per team about fifteen hundred people including the hotel workers I talked to general managers of hotel really really went into this. And I was like we came to conclusion. It's gotTa be sixteen teams, and you play it in about fifty days and every two weeks. You're you're you're people reduced by half? But this by the way was including no media members in their no broadcasters, all of that will be done from outside the bubble, and that's what I came up with and to see what is happening in the NBA. They're talking about thirty five people per team. We're talking about allowing family then. They're talking about You know having more that doesn't align with the most safe. Way to go based on the work that I in Tim Bontemps. Did now I have to Acknowledge Tony? That part of doing this is the mental health of people you can make something safe, and if the people are miserable inside of it, and it failed it Yonne accomplish your goal, but I I when I say that the smartest thing to do is go with sixteen teams I'm not just. You know. Ripping off an opinion and trying to say I actually did the work to figure that out and so I. AM concerned and I gotta be honest with you it I. Do you know I? Don't know what the situation will be I. Do not have any intention of joined Orlando. Because I'm worried about it and I hope for the best. But I'm worried about it, so let's let's. Backtrack for a second. Adam. Silver's shutdown sports in America by. Fiat just did it himself. Everybody else followed at one test. One positive test to Rudy Gobert, which is not to say that other people did not have the virus, but he found out about one positive test. He shut down his sport and shamed everybody else into shutting down their sports. We could argue whether that was right or wrong. I'm perfectly happy to say it was right, but if you're going to come back, you can't do that, you can't. You cannot shut down your sport with one positive test. There have to be other rungs on the ladder. I'm sure we can agree with that. This is to me the big one. Basketball, if it comes back is a televised entertainment. That's all it is. There's nobody else in the stands. This is strictly a television show. There is one person in the NBA. She really can't do without in the playoffs if he's in them and that's Lebron James. What if the Bron James gets sick? What what are the contingencies for people getting sick and still maintaining the integrity of their team? Yeah they should wrap them in the chamber, and and you know Yeah, Two things happened in the NBA which which. You know a month ago. They didn't they didn't. They wouldn't have done this a month ago, but now they. They agreed number one. They were convinced that there had to be. Enough test for everybody in this country that wanted to get one. Obviously, we're never going to have three hundred million testing there, but they wanted to have so many tests that them. Using a number of tests on a daily basis wouldn't look bad. Now wouldn't look that. They came off of that because they realize we're going to get to that number quite frankly, and they said we need to have enough test for first responders and the Orange County Florida which is where Orlando is came out with a statement, was in relation to the magic reopening their facility, but it was really a message to pro sports teams. They came out the public. Health Department came out and said Hey we got enough. That's first responders. That was number. One number. Two is what you just said the idea that any one player and I mean. Anyone played beat Lebron James. Tenneco test positive the leak and can steal. They will build something with the League. You continue going. and. Those were two concessions that they made that enabled us now we've been. It feels like we've been on an endless march to get this plan going for three weeks now, but. You know may tenth may seventh. They were still on those two positions, and it looked, and and I would say that itself fifty fifty whether there was going to be a season now because they've made those, there is going to be a resumption of the season. You know we hope. and. Nobody knows the answer to that but you know it's not GonNa Behavior Shutting down the playoffs for two weeks so Lebron can make sure Lebron is healthy in can recover and return to play. No, Ron, get sick. The Lakers will go on without him and the league will be less event and that is just. Part of the concessional they've made and It is going to be a fascinating experiment. And when I talked to the doctors and Tony I wanted, you know while I did talk to doctors, you know the NBA. Doctors. Who didn't know didn't know anything about basketball I didn't want not that. I thought that it would matter, but I you know I talked to one doctor who was from England and I don't think she knew whether basketball was blown up with their stuff with feathers and I cared about her opinion. Because, she wasn't going to be biased at all, and she just said. It seems like you're risking an awful lot for this. It seems like an unnecessary risk. And I appreciated what she was saying. The other thing is basketball is in a very problematic scenario going forward number one. They play in a game is very much heavy on contact. They breathe on each other. They sweat on each other anything like that. Secondly they play indoors. and. They all touch the same ball. Theoretically within any minute, all ten players touch the ball, and what have you? Baseball is in such a much better position to fight a virus in play. But the but the baseball owners and players are so apart, but I don't know if they're going to be able to, but basketball has a real challenge. The Indoor sports have a real challenge going forward because I. Don't know about fans football. You can still put maybe twenty thousand fans in the stadium have some revenue. That's ball hockey. It's going to be really heart. I'll get you out of here on this the way you are leaning now. Do. You think if they start. They go straight through. Yes. Wow I, think they go straight through. I we did the math it's. If. They do four rounds of games. Which is what Adam Silver has said they WANNA. Do and by the way as you mentioned television product. And you gave money ratings going to be great. You're getting money from TNT AN. Espn you need to do that. That can take a maximum of fifty five days. Now it may not take fifty five days. Because you know, there may be sweeps, but if you play it out, it could take essentially just under two months now. You, also have a training camp. You're going to have when you get there because you're gonNA, have to quarantine before you get in. There appeared thing. No one's talking about now. You'RE NOT GONNA. Have to quarantine for two weeks, but you have to do some sort of quarantine before you get in the bubble. and that's even before we talk about any of these regular season or playing games so it. It could take. Between two and three months, if you if you are willing to go in there as a player or referee or a guy who runs the scoreboard or guy who runs a camera? You're going to have to raise your hand and say I'm ready to go in there for two to three months. And I don't know what the parameters the bubble is going to be. You're not going to be watching your hotel room. But you know people who think that you can just on an off day stroll over and go to magic kingdom. That's not going to be the gay no. It's invisible fence for dog. When you leave the area, you get shocked. It's no you can't do that. You can't obviously, and you can't come out I. Mean obviously you can leave They can't hold you there. It's not a prison, but you're not gonna be able to come back like. You know if your if your girlfriend or your wife is pregnant and she is due in the middle of the of the thing you, you're probably not gonna be able to see. Maybe there'd be some process, but you know and this is one of the things we're asking. The doctors were like well. What happens if you twist your knee and you need an MRI. You know and you have to leave and come back I mean the answer is yeah. You can come back, but you really should quarantine. You know so now. It's not just a matter of. You know whether you get sick. What if you are? What if you get hurt? You know these, it's a real big. The every logistical question that we had and we got an answer to two or three more questions came up. Brian thank you so much. We'll talk to you soon. Appreciate it. Take Care Bryan is the best. He's simply the best. We'll take a break. Michael Wilbon will join us when we return. I am Tony Kornheiser.

I watched the news till. I just say I can't watch the news anymore. Because of depression, which has happened steadily increasing over the last three or four or five months on. And today I watched and I saw and I. I don't know why these things surprise me, but I guess it does surprise me. They talked about. Protesting and they talked about protesting turning violent. Against against property and things like that, and apparently there's a mall in Arizona. Where there were some violent clashes and looting and things like that in in my mind, you know because you're in Arizona all the time and the way you described it as being so much different than where I am. I just I mean it's stuck out at me. The Entire country is going through this. It's not Minneapolis alone. It's not Minneapolis and east coast political cities. It's the entire country. In fact, your hometown. They were boarding up stores on. Michigan Avenue and now in. Your hometown of Washington they burn Saint John's Church, your hometown of Arizona. has this as well I just I'm sort of struggling for my thoughts and I wonder what yours are. I'm not struggling hall You know I. I watched I was no getting enough of it watched. You know for a seven or eight hours yesterday. YOU KNOW CNN networks? Were you know not even? In the game, CNN and MSNBC FOR ME. and I'm not struggling at all. I watch early the day. Is Martin Luther King the third? Quoted his own father, it was just. Very meaningful to me and he was. Trying to address what you're talking about now and he just said you know I was had the exact phrase I. wrote it down Notebook talking about how? Violence is is the. This is the voice of. The hopeless. They've they they get you get to this point when you've tried everything and no one is listening to you. As a matter of condoning. It's a matter of understanding. And I saw a couple of times during the day. People say okay. You get to the point where you've seen everywhere I wrote down all the names of the people that all, but the most prominent people black people murdered. While being an armed by police. Last like seven years. and. Then that happens. Every time after time after time after time. Is Amazing. This hasn't happened before. Like like you know don that. We're trying to figure out what why this time. Why this particular murder! Why is this touched? A nerve. and. I don EST it. This was the tipping point this was it. I think there was some things we could pri i. told you on Friday this. This happening in Minneapolis is going to make this different. Now. I didn't think it was going to be this different. But. I'm not struggling at all I mean. You Watch that we tony. You're talking about this years ago and and in different contexts but. I have friends who are of who are white. You ever been stopped. Because you're black car. By police. Have somebody put a light in your face like they want to take you out of the car and beat you. You ever had that happen. I've had it happen in my own neighborhood Fairfax. Virginia when I was living there. Had Been in, I guess somewhere in Ohio have two or three times ahead of happened. It was writing DC once in silver. Spring. And you get your at the point now where you don't know I'm in Arizona fifteen hundred miles away from Minneapolis. Everytime. GUAC Card now you flinch. I I wonder. What am I going to Tell Matthew? About how he is to comport himself. Comport you. You don't do anything. Because all of these people, couple of the people were shot in their homes, shot and killed in their homes by police, not even in a car, not even a vehicle traffic situation so. No I'm not struggling. care about sports today. I know I have to probably discuss them. I don't care about sports. It doesn't matter. So let me let me just say this because I thought you think about this. You can have relationships with people all you want, but all of us is an are different by degree from somebody else I feel certain things because of my background because of being Jewish. when people are killed for the crime of simply. Believing in a faith when they're killed. At a house of worship in Pittsburgh, I feel that I didn't ask to feel that it just happened. It's part of my DNA and what I grew up with. You have the same thing being black. You feel certain things that I canna I can empathize, but I cannot feel them in the way that you feel them. And I suspect everybody to one degree, or another has something in their bodies that they feel in a way that other people don't and I, just you know. So. That's like a coding that you have that you can talk to your brother about. And you can talk to me about it, but it's not going to be the same right. It's not going to be the same. Same No. Not the same when you're live. Our lives. Are. I mean our lives are as fully inclusive. Of People. Who are quote unquote different. As it gets, your lives have been that way for forty years. And increasing the over the over those forty I mean we're at the point now. Where yeah I mean, it's a it's A. It's a nine. Eight. On, a scale of one to ten. And Yeah Tony. Yes, I I would agree with that and this this particular thing you know Colin Kaepernick. Color comforting, maybe flawed. He may be a flawed messenger, but he. This is what this is why. He took a knee. This is why. Is going to be a lot more people. Take these this year. We it this NFL football, I their fans in the stands or not. There's GonNa be a lot more people doing it. I mean. I was moved yesterday in whatever city police officers took knees with took a knee with the protesters. Colin Kathy You know I don't know that. I've ever seen people in sports and I'm not. It's not caring about sports. It's about the people now who? are biggest stars in some ways I don't know that I've ever seen people respond in the way they have. Did you see what Doc Rivers? hosted. I'd I don't I'm not social me? You know that I'm not I. Don't tell me this city social media Giordano social either issued a statement. which was powerful and Eloquent and I reached out to him after I saw his statement, doc rivers talked about his father, grady who I knew. a Chicago police officer. Maybe it was me. Would the suburb Chicago police officer and how he would have felt in this moment and doc having grown up with a father who is in law enforcement. And, still just the shame of it. And these are. You know. These are these are people who all now feel something so deeply. That it's it's I'm consumed by it. Did you by any chance and I don't know if you have. That was sent to me by my friend Douglas. Did you read what Kareem wrote in The Times? Yeah, yes, great, yeah, really great op Ed piece in The Times was. Kareem whole piece. You know. Big Chunk of that, but people had a chunk of that. so many so many a couple athletes I'm not even familiar with. And they had. Expressed cinema, it's. And I I don't know what's GonNa. Happen. Today or tomorrow. You know last night. I watched everything I. Watch everything coming from Lafayette Park last night. How many times have you and I walked? The two blocks from the Washington Post sure right there. Right there bill and it'd be worked in at eleven. Fifty Fifteenth Street to Lafia Park. Past it into it through it. To the White House through it. And to see that. Last night was is wrenching. but you know I I? You know for for people who want to address. The reaction. I? As opposed to the conditions that. Must Exist. Consistently and continually over now a decade. They. Don't WanNa address that they WANNA address. The protesters and with the protests I'm talking I e. the the rioters right on the rioters. The rioters in the protesters are very often as you pointed this out. Is. Andrew Cuomo Cuomo has the CNN show. Chris Cuomo. Chris Chris Cuomo! It was interesting just to listen to him, and he picked up on early on the thing. People look look at look at what's going on. Just see it. and as various groups trying to hijack the protest their own purposes. Sometimes completely at odds with what the protesters are saying and doing or attempting to do. Watch, Jane Fonda last night. who was unbelievably is like it was like a trip back in time to see Jane Fonda. In a full passion, talk about her reaction to this and find his early eighties now, yes. and so this is what this is what we have. And I you know. Do I expect it to not happen again anytime soon. I don't know. Tell me too many too many times. No I don't know, too. Committee names so the other thing that I look at is I look at the official response from the people who are of authority, the mayors and the governors, and the police chiefs in the fire chiefs, and I will say I think I've said this to you before. I think the Mayor of Chicago is Great. I I mean Laura. Foot. She gets out there and she. She seems to me. To be tremendously empathetic and at the same time saying something like you don't go to a peaceful protest would have shoveled or a bowling ball. Come on, come on, and she's and you can see it. In her face I I've concentrated on her because I. Just think she's very good. You can, you can see. The strain in her face. It's clear where her heart is. It's clear it's with the protest, but she's got to maintain some semblance of structure in her city, right. Yeah, sure absolutely. but life would is Ooh I. got to know a little bit. comes. North Western sporting events I. Don't know how really really good friends with. The president of northwestern. And I've seen her and chat with her now a number of times and she has a working relationship with my brother. Who In this capacity and J. P.? Morgan, I'm sure helps. Underwrite any number of things to deal with Chicago public schools. and so he's dealing with the mayor we so. We have very different relationships with her. I NOT GONNA. Pretend to know her well, but she's an interesting woman and she's got like every mayor. You. Know Right now. She's got. Something on her hands, I mean I was I was worried about. I was worried about both the places that I live and I say both. Because Arizona's relatively recent, the last fifteen years and yeah, they were. Tony! Was the fifth figure city in the United States or six fifty six in the united. Not, some people can think of you know. They think of walk looking at some so Worrell a cactus and they think that this is some outpost, no outpost. Phoenix Arizona is much bigger than Washington DC just pick a place that we're talking about. Many more people. Are In terms of the city itself. And You know e- every every mayor. Every city every place. Every city has its own story has its own has a George Floyd. and. That's why so many people yesterday. Spike Lee pounded on this interview. He was CNN. That's why I'm saying that. This is not new people. This is not new. We got to a tipping point. People can discuss that what what it is about this particular awful tragedy that set off the reaction admitted did as opposed to all the others. He I would. I would say it's. I. Would say it is stark. UN nuanced video. There's a Kai with his knee on somebody's neck, and that person is saying I can't breathe, and then that person is dead. Eric Garner is in new. York like it wasn't any different in different you have and you have multiple people chokehold. Then I! Then I guess I don't I mean? I don't know. I. I think it made just again. I think it's a tipping point in a way. trying to figure it out I. Don't know that any I'm sure that you know people. Have answers you know, but but this is. You know Tony for any topic for anything to. Pull US away. From the pandemic. In a in in a flash like this did. I mean this is severe as anything I I. Remember on Friday on Pti I compared this to civil rights things on television. Yeah, you know. Of course if a president. Who Talks about turning dogs on people vicious dogs. which you talk about imagery and what it conjures up for someone like. Sure. We. Have this kind of talking I talked about that? So yesterday and I thought okay well, maybe maybe. Too Far using that description. And then Crawl Bercy, was on CNN. And he said he thought it was worse than nine hundred and sixty eight. Bursting is a student of this. Covers had this and David Gergen David Gergen, who was probably my favorite commentator on national politics? They were both on CNN together at the same time from wherever their respective homes. And, they each said. This was worse. than the flash point moments we think about that. We recommend that we were call. From the nineteen sixties tone. David Gergen in Carl Bernstein. And they were the disgust in their faces. I mean they felt that they they felt something. I. Don't think this was just observation. I think they had been on. They've obviously we're on the front lines of observing America at a boiling point of boiling point. We often think was I. don't know the most dramatic in the twentieth century and they're. They're comparing it. Right now and saying we're. We're at that point. We may be past that point. So yeah. I was hostage to television yesterday. It was good to be today. And I'm not GonNa Watch anything else. I'M GONNA be on I take. It a couple of hours. and. I'm sure that like half the show or whatever the segment they're going to have is going to. Deal with this and we'll deal with the the reaction that people in the sports community are having suspected will tried to monitor. As much that yesterday I could as well. Well we'll. Do, PTI later. But it does feel. Different degree I I think I. DON'T WANNA. Get on too much of a soapbox here, but I think there's such an apparent lack of leadership. From the president. It's just. It's just you just I. We earlier today Chris Cillizza was on this show. And I said. You know there are four living ex presidents. Carter and Bush and Clinton and Obama, and whether you like them president or not, you would agree. They're good men, good moral men. Why can't they get up and speak? People would want to hear that particularly if they did it together and Chris said it's just not done. You know it's just not done presidents. Ex Presidents don't criticize even defacto current president's and I just thought to myself. What a missed opportunity, wouldn't we? Wouldn't we want to hear from them and see them right wouldn't wouldn't that be something we would want? Yeah, yes, yes, I'd like to hear from any one of them I. don't WanNa. Hear from this one right and it was interesting to hear victims. Relatives yesterday say. The mayor of Atlanta. So I don't want to hear from this president. There's nothing. That, he's going to say that has any compassion or empathy or or just. Anything that remotely resembles something human. and. I mean you know? When your mind is! It secret service people out in front of you that they're ready for a fight. They're ready to go. You just go. Okay, we're not. This is not a lack of leadership. This is a disdain. For leading. This is. That even understanding the definition of the word. This is where we are in and you know I don't know. I last night, maybe we. Maybe we got to a point in the last night where looking at New, York looking at Lafayette. Park and look at Seattle and looking at places. This is not like this. He's why it's worse and I'm GonNa make this point. This is why in some ways is worse than what we saw in the sixties in the sixties you had. The actual protests were contained two places largely in the southeast. And you'd have a march here and there and this was the place that. Burger Watson inner city. DETROIT CHICAGO. You know we're talking about Santa Monica California. We you know we're talking about Michigan Avenue. Lafayette Park talking about the Fourteenth Street corridor. Talking about places in America where you never thought you'd see. People angry and taking to the streets where they are. And so I if people aren't paying attention to this. I just I don't know I. I don't know what everybody's attention I do. Not In the same way, not in the way, it needs to have everyone's attention. All Right, I will love me. I'll see you later by the miracle of television all right Tom Michael Wilbon boys and girls. We'll take a break. We'll come back. We will have email. We will have jingle. I'm Tony, Kornheiser.

This is from Jesse Friedman I love to hear you rant and reminisce about your old Long Island days both my parents grew up on. On the island roughly the same time as you did Howard, Randy, my mom went to Rosslyn. Yes, that Roslin from the HBO Bad Education Movie And my dad went to Babylon. I, finally broke down and ask my dad about the dairy bron which led to to revelations, one is quite unsettling one. There were multiple dairy barns as he would visit the one on Jerusalem Avenue no less than two times a week for household staples to they only started going to the dairy bond. Bond when my dad was about eight or nine years old when the Milkman and the egg man died, my father is old enough to have had a Milkman an egg man I don't need Cindy born to tell me. My parents rolled by no idea there were milk, men and egg men delivering deliveries I. had them I had a Milkman I had a bread man Peter Wheat what he delivered. Peter Wheat Bread to a box outside my house. Yes, I, had that age name. Jackson Fisher Baltimore Maryland. I'm a couple of days behind on the PODCAST, but your description of the drive through banking experience, but back some fantastic memories of my brothers and I sitting in the nineteen seventy station wagon with my mother. Typically, my mother would go through Dr. Taylor on our weekly trip to the grocery store. The magic pneumatic tube was always a huge hit, and we would fight over who got to place the deposit in the tube, unlike the pneumatic tube could produce any combination of bills change. Just try to get one hundred, twenty, three, thousand forty five cents from Modern Day ATM every visit to the drive thru culminated with some cash from my mother and a set of lollipops for us kids, no matter how many cars backed up behind us. There was no driving away until everyone in. In! The car was happy from Paul in Maidens. Virginia Dear Dr Ron Thank you for continuing to do the podcast. It helps tremendously to have some small piece of my normal life. Continue while I am not from Long Island. Nor did I go to summer camp. I love all those stories that share about those topics. I'm amazed at how many liberals are somehow connected to those memories. Heard you mention last week. Your first dog was a Beagle name Puna. I currently have to Britney's named Ali and Zeke just like your Magoni. Like your Maggie I, did a little research on Hewlett High School few the first George Hewlett Hewlett homestead at eighty six east rockaway road, starting in seventeen, forty nine year, high school was named after the first George's descendant George Wilson Hewlett. One thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, seven to nineteen, sixty nine, who served on the school board for forty six years, and was president for thirty four. Now that I appreciate that I just all I ever said was the historic marker said. That George W Hewlett was a Tory spy. Who tried to capture George? Washington I assume the school is named for him, but apparently not. From Way. In billings Montana I feel I must speak out against the egregious censorship. Committed by Michael in regards to the underpants read several years ago as he navigated the Minefield Valentine's Day Promo from me undies. I decided to give them a shot, and yes I use the coat. It seems silly at the time, but years later I can say with one hundred percent honesty that an underwear subscription might be one of the best things I. have ever signed up for so Michael. Let those reeds fly. Let it all hang out. Out there, your listeners will appreciate it even if it makes you a little bit hot under the collar. PS My wife and I have gone back and Rewatch the AMC series. Turn for the umpteenth time. It's based on revolutionary. War Era spiring major Edmund Hewlett is a prominent English officer who works to uncover the continental spies. Maybe he's based off your high school's namesake. If you have watch recommended, that's the INCON-. Series says right watched George Washington Nova Scotia. Shout out from Matt Brace girdle in Nova Scotia this long. As a lawyer, little the great white north it was a much welcome shout out of Nova Scotia during Monday's episode. It's very rare. We mentioned on TV film podcast to date my biggest hometown. Famous moment was seeing visit Nova Scotia poster on the wall and travel agency during season one of the Americans. How's that are tiny province of less than a million people has gone through some pretty unfathomable things in the last two months. What we had is now. Now the worst mass shooting in Canadian history when a gunman disguises local law enforcement killed more than twenty people and twelve hour span, this was followed by a NATO helicopter, crashing off the coast of Greece which contain crew from Nova Scotia a week later, not far from mass shooting location. A three year old boy fell into a local river and was not found to keep this sats events, a sad streak of events going a pilot from the Canadian snowbirds. They are the equivalent of the blue. Angel Aircraft Tragically Plane Crash during a tour across the nation, which was being done to boost the morale of the country in the current state finally Orlando more personal level this past weekend.

This which can be pronounced, tinnitus or tonight, as can be triggered by a large number of things, so it's difficult to diagnose. It isn't caused by ear wax. It's in the inner ear of or the nerve leading to your brain changes in Diet. Especially salt, intake, stress and physical activity can cause ringing because. Because the year actively use some blood supply which is impacted by all those things. If you've got sinus pressure on my block, low-frequency sounds resulting in your brain, being especially sensitive to those sounds as their journey generated by your inner ear. Literally the ringing is coming from inside the house Michael had the right intuition and thinking about late night or otherwise quiet situations where the lack of external noise.

"The Poonah"

"Previously on the Tony Kornheiser show you move around on the grid to another boss. Everybody I went to high school with looks a lot different. Because we're you know sixty years older. We look a lot different. Some look like they had died and we're just being propped up like El. Sit on a horse only a couple of guys. I remember writing. Eddie I said it was he alive. I don't WanNa mention the name of these people that I said that about you. Know in a couple of look like Wales and a couple of good and a couple like me look bad the Tony Kornheiser show is on now. It's actually serendipitous that we opened with that. I didn't know that would be the open for the show because it leads me into something i WanNa talk about. I'm sitting by the way The end of my uncle Benny's table in my house. Michael is socially distanced correctly. Six feet away at the other end of Uncle Benny table which he will get somewhere down. The he's future table boots. He's future table Nigel is in his house on his in his house. And I wanted to mention this one of the guys that I went to high school with his name is Bobby Candle Bobby. Candle was the handsome most accomplish guy in my high school class. Basically he was our exchange student. He went in the nineteen sixties to Afghanistan before anybody knew what would be with Afghanistan twenty and thirty and forty and fifty years later he really looks like Robert Redford and to this day. Looks that good bobby. Candle looks that good so he arranged the whole thing. This whole zoom meeting for Hewlett High School and I thanked him and he wrote me back. He goes good to see the other night and to see that you are healthy in the small world department. I have been the chair of a child. Welfare Agency for the past fifteen years or so along with being chair comes being president of the school board that runs the public junior and senior high school that serves a residential population. We to school board meeting this evening via zoom and the superstars by asking me. If I know you he goes on to say that. He's a follower of your podcast and heard reference to me so I am known to at least one person you know so that that is something that happened in I I wrote him back and I said it is always thrilling to hear stories like this when one of my listeners encounters someone. I've talked about in a small connection is made. I have no idea how many people listen where they are who they are but when people listen to non music radio shows podcasts. It is always always because they feel connected to the host and they joined the Greater Club that listens that connective tissue spreads out among listeners. Like a spiderweb so happy you were caught in it and then I got this one. Tony this is from Bob. Candle you interrupting at that point. Did somebody say something? Oh No I was just reacting the now so I shared with you. I shared your email with my superintendent. And he sent back a love letter to you and noted another coincidence see paragraph two best Bob. This is from Mike. Daniel V. A. N. Y. Oh who is the person who listens to the show? I'm a huge Tony Fan. I've been chatter twice but unfortunately didn't get to see any of the shows. I can't tell you how many trips he kept me entertained. I don't think I miss a podcast. When I was recovering from months with my hiking accident it was great motivation to keep me laughing. I have brought my entire family into the Tony. Kornheiser world over the years. My Son Kyle grew up listening to him with me as we would drive from Saratoga. To mets and jets games. Even my ex girlfriend's ex ex-wife all started to like the show as it was always on when I was traveling. Now here's another crazy story. My youngest brother was Lieutenant. Colonel in the army he is the one who lives in Hawaii. He used to work for Obama and the White House and traveled with them. So Keith would be in a golf cart behind. Obama went to Columbia. Which I think is Tony's course. A few times only played golf. Keith called me once told me guess where I am. Who's playing golf with the President? He said that Tony was very generous to them and he would never forget that. I love to hear his rants about stories about camping when he would talk about. Saratoga Lake George or the catskills. I was a superintendent at Liberty. Liberty is in upstate New York City near right near Monticello. It just made me smile and you can tell him that. I had my David Aldridge moment when I heard your name on my podcast. That's great right. That's that's tremendous that is the smallest. Pus only happens to you know. I was mesmerized. With the way you're able to navigate that cell phone you're scrolling. Wanted to make sure I did that correctly. So active practice it from Dan. Golding just wanted to let you know that after the last show I call David Bells. Up to order a case he could not have been more friendly and charming. He said that in just the last couple of days after the episode dropped he'd had fifteen calls from little's ordering his wine. Isn't that Nice? That's a great number. That's really nice from Cornelia Santer. 'cause herself now. Would you consider shoutout from Tony to my partner? Randy Hogue offers thirtieth birthday on May nineteenth. He listened to show religiously would blow his mind for example. Tony wished him happy birthday on an upcoming show or send him a happy birthday tweet. Isn't that Nice? And so we have that tweet. And that's in Nevada. She's she's the part of the Department of Biology no fans PhD universal data. Las Vegas very very nice From Mark Fine Sand. No need to read this on the podcast unless Tony wants to but I had a question. I was hoping he might be able to answer. We'RE GONNA go into a deep dive on Cam. Kiama right now kids. After I hung up with you on Monday occurred to me. I had a question. The old gymnasium at Westmont had a plaque that read Mike natyczyk Memorial Gym. Do you know who that was? We always assumed he was some legend from Kiama but nobody knew for sure. I figured if anybody would know B- Tony Mike. Natyczyk was the caretaker share. He was the caretaker at Camp Kiama. He lived in either far city of Carbondale. Which is ten or twelve miles away but during the summers he lived in basically a bunker at Camp Kiama with his family. He Bred Beagles. My first dog. The PUNA was a Beagle from Mike. Natta check at Camp Kiama. That's mark who he is from Zach. Longer this is Zack from Westchester New York and Binghamton University Graduate Class. A two thousand seventeen. I was just watching the Binghamton University. Twenty Twenty sendoff as my brother is twenty twenty graduate love the Binghamton Pride and hope can get out on the course and show if that beautiful Binghamton Golf. Big Keep giving the bear. Catch shout out on the pot. It was your class. You're the speaker twenty twenty. That's just now seeing twenty seven twenty seventeen. I spoke with twenty twenty. I just did that thing that you made fun of. Why TOLD PEOPLE FOR THIRTY YEARS? I just said I'd graduated from Cornell still hung up and I had the baggage had the hat and I had the shirt and I got a nice note from Harvey Stinger saying he really appreciated me doing that. And here's the one of the ones. I'll read today and this is this is so tremendous. This is from Tom ellwood. This is long and I'm reading it since four. The five here in New York residents have emailed you already. I thought I would make it five of five. I was impressed. You remember the. Wvu tinkle pause Texaco station. I didn't remember. It was a Texaco station so I called my ninety three year old dad who thought it was an auto repair shop. He went on to tell me that veiled Singapore was the one time mayor of handcock the was married to more than their grandson Benji. Singapore was a high school classmate of my brother. Charlie I know this information will make you very happy. The nighttime hotspots camp counselors would definitely in Hancock with a choice of the Delaware townhouse. In Mike's Bar I was bartended. Mike Spar for four summers while in college thankfully Mike had a one for you one from me approach to bartending. Which is why I stayed for four years. I remember bird being played nine million times a night on a jukebox. And every time it came up micro. I rejected it. When people wanted to refund we tell him to shut up and go finish their sloe GIN fizz. With my experience. I decided to go to the University of New Hampshire's hospitality school. After graduation I worked for eight years at the mayflower hotel every day after work. I crossed the street to the parking lot which was next to the ABC building where Dr Hoff to PTI every day. Is I watch as Mr. Tony's car was parked at the top of the ramp and he would stroll out a PTI. Get in his car and leave. Well I had to wait hours for my car. To be retrieved. So my next encounter occurred in two thousand and Tampa at the giants versus Ravens Super Bowl. I saw grams at the Marriott Tampa waterside as we were both checking out. I was GONNA say Hello but the scowl on your face. Don't come near me. I felt like the guy in the Toyota illegally parked on your street and in two one five. I now live in Key West. My wife Carol is probably a more loyal listener than me. I ride my bike around the island every day and listened to the pot happily knowing you will never come to key west so I don't have to worry about whether you'll get bathrobes and slippers at the resort I managed time Elwood. Ps The beauty of the Lake Lorraine Golf course which is a nine hole. Golf Course in L. Pennsylvania is you can hookers slice four fairways either way and still have a great shot at the green. Tell Michael Call me and I'll get them on. All of that. Angles is just these these emails which Nigel gets delivered to him. Just are astonishing to me. They I I assume that if they make me happy. They make you happy to to the listeners. Just watching your reaction is everything I need right now and one more from Sarah Burton my husband and I are listening to the Bill Simmons podcast. I did one with bill last week with you. When you mentioned your wife is painting. We recently bought a house and we were looking to support artists decorate. My husband listens to Bill Simmons. Every day is a big fan of yours as well. I'd love to surprise them with a painting if she's interested in selling no problem off she an is she interested in selling. You can have everything in the house. Everything in the house is for sale including me. So that's great so I have a phone number. All of this makes me happy and now we can get into the show itself. We will have Steve Sands on. Who did the golf yesterday? And we will have Michael Wilbon on and we'll talk about a variety of things including certainly with Wilbon Phyllis George who will bond loved and certainly with sands the golf but I wanted to just say this to begin with about the Gulf I watched it and it. I'm not saying it was a great television show because golf is difficult because there's so much time in between shots and there were so many commercials and so much of it was about how much money was being raised. After you WANNA put your hands back and just say okay I get it I get it but it was also live and it made me so very happy. And the thing that made me happy. Est- happiest was to see these guys in shorts carrying their own bags and walking the course and I wanted Michael how you felt about the entirety of it so agree to it. Brings you back to junior golf days to college golf days? You wouldn't notice but where they leave their bags before they walk back to the tea or when they're walking up to a Greenie solace number one. They they leave the bags by two everything about the exit point and the shot when you see them going up the dunes and the golf bags under back. That just shows you. The power of golf can be particularly into this new normal. And we all say it's built for social distancing except for Dustin Johnson who looks like he's never carried golf back in his life carrying it on the opposite shoulder. But no you're right. There's a four ball match so there's only four balls in play and they tried to fill that with commercials and it was not for everyone. I would say the the opening when you see Bob Ford flipping the coin that is for the return of live sports even in this house. Then you're able to take a NAP during a live. Golf telecast which is frankly what most of us do anyway. We'll come back and it's still on. Well they're playing for six skins now. Great it's still on so I enjoyed it and the overhead shots. I just think about this for a second. This is north of Palm Beach by eight or ten miles. Not Not that far north. GotTa go drive up through Riviera beach into into Juno Beach. And when you see the overhead shot and you see all of the homes all of the apartment houses all of the single homes and you see this wide expanse of golf course and this beautiful. Blue Ocean you say to yourself. Wow they ever sold that if they ever sold these billions to exist for the last seventy five years where it's feet away from a green or a not is a major road. Then you have the ocean that looks like at any point it could rip away a third of course so did you. I mean if you've played it it's particularly enjoyable if you haven't and you like golf. Seeing seminole is fantastic so so much of this was about the golf course itself which famously this was. Its unveiling ahead of the Walker Cup a year from now so it was about the Gulf that definitely feeds into the into. I would say the the High Level Golfer who's never had the chance to see this and just wanted to see those drone shots wanted to see the way. The course was routed. Through these two main Dune lines where you famously have the wind playing into different directions almost on every single hole and beyond that everything else felt just a little off and I think that's actually what we needed as we try and work our way back to live sports. The Gulf felt rusty. Frankly I the first couple of holes you didn't even think they were GonNa make policy were missing wedges. And that's that helped the course. I think it helped all of us get back into the saying. Those guys read home protecting themselves as well. They played in practice. A lot of those guys didn't practice for people like me who have played it. Just the establishing shot when you drive through the driveway and you see that big sort of Reddish clubhouse and you know I know there's a pool there that nobody's ever been in and it's just it was really. It was really nice. I got this email from Paul twining. Who said wow? They're playing at seventy two hundred yards. When I was there Paul worked there. It was sixty seven hundred yards and I wrote. I only play it from where the Great Sam Reeves plays it and it's nowhere near any of those things like these guys. I will say this. It's so odd I if you if you hadn't seen matthew play before. That is the oddest swing. I mean he kicks his leg out to the side his left leg goes out to the side and any resets and then he takes the swing where he picks the golf club up straight over his head. It's just he's so good. How can you be? That good was such an odd looking. Swing well it again. This is all about positions and the move you're describing is not just to trigger move like you might see tiger woods. Has that forward press triggered before he butts. This was actually trying to establish position. Impact where he was trying to get more open he starts hitting it so well it goes. Why won't I just play with this all the time? So if you've been following kills arise of George Jenkins who's one of the big names in golf instruction this is his star pupil. And frankly if you look at what demo they're trying to capture you got the number one player in the world. This is something that was branded with tailor made as a partner. You're trying to sell some drivers when I when I think deejays at Assim drivers I'm seeing. Dj staredown his club in disbelief as he's launching. Some high cuts into a pond into the long dry foles. I WANNA see Matthew will show up and frankly the first couple holes ricky's looking over to his left going. Come on kid. I thought I thought you could hit it a little bit. So No. That's it's all about positions and that is that energy as he tried to kids carrying their own bags playing without caddy playing with range. Finders that's what you WANNA see the best part about Dj before the other players ball even landed on the green. He was already in his backswing. That's what you WANNA see with. Gall played quickly played quick now I actually not as quick as they tell you to play seminar. They get a letter with whether you say. If you play well play fast. If you play badly play faster you know because they want you for the caddy's three and a half hours. They hit out about four twenty-five but again I think they got to a couple of tease because some of these Greens bydesign. You Rolling Green to tee box. I think they were held up by TV. Saying we have to come back from this commercial break because that's our pain. Yeah Yeah so anyway Nigel. You didn't watch it right. I watched a bit of it. It looked marvelous. Yeah Sean did you watch it did not? That's okay. German docker was my my Bundesliga came back with no fans in auto racing came back with no fans and so there was something finally on a weekend for you to watch or not watch. Were you okay with the ending? Well they they had to do something I mean. You can't wait for holding one. Just it's I thought if you sandy about anything from the Tiger Phil match. Let them actually play the whole and when you get eighteen? I wish they had some sort of asterix written in which is something along. The lines of if eighteen is worth more than two or three potential skins which is upwards of a half a million dollars for charity. We WanNa see you try and win out the skin. Not just with a Birdie to win or Lois score but yet to take both players because one thing lacking day was trying to see both players play out yes and if you looked at fifteen we're D- Davis has essentially picks up. Rory obviously as a chance to win always the number one player in the world but you. WanNa say I want to see him. Trying to scrape out a bogey. You as soon as you see. Ricky missed the green on one thousand nine hundred canny. Try and get in with a four. I would say that if I had to use a word I would. I would describe it as charming. I just thought it was charming. We'll take a break when we come back. Michael Wilbon will join us. I believe it's my turn to say. I'm Tony Kornheiser.

Nice I know Steve Sands joins us now. Mike and I were just talking about watching the golf yesterday so you are back at home. I'm just going to start with the first thing that I was getting texts yesterday about you and these were texts from four or five different people. The subject was always the same. Sandy is in social distancing enough. He's too close to people. We are worried for him. Did you get any sense of physical proximity and and you know like what was it like to be walking in that circumstance? Well if they're talking about the Dustin Johnson interview that was totally my fault one hundred percent. It was instinctual. It was muscle memory. It was just turn and speak through an athlete. Who just done something? And it was totally my fault as second we were done. I was yelled at by everybody. And I looking at each other and we're both like Oh man we we. It's are bad we we're so sorry That was totally my thought. It was not destined fault. It was my fault that the athletes are golfers. Are Mike. But you know it's only when you do this for a living and you you're so used to just turning and talking it it was instinctual. That was my fault. Evidently I'm not a twitter guy. I'm not a social media as you know and my salary was just like texting would laugh and and just joking with me and like yelling at me and everything was going crazy. And everybody's in my years screaming to producers and everything. It was my fault other than that. We social distance because remember getting yelled at diverse time but that I was totally by fault and I apologize. You'll have to apologize. I'm just saying that people care for you. And They WanNa make sure that you all overall and this is not a word that I would use in sporting events often. Did you have fun doing it? Oh man it was great it was Look seminal is special unsure we're GONNA get into Seeing the guys again was great You know it's funny. I I listen to your show every day Whatever the PODCAST is on people like need human interaction we're not built to self isolate. Were not built for social distancing. Were not built to say hello to one another and not hug or kiss or shake hands or whatever you're going to do and just to be around the guys be around people from the tour to have some normalcy of going to work Watching the best players in the world compete yeah. It was a blast. It was a lot of fun. Did it seem weird to you on any level because it was so different from the norm old golf tournament experience it did it was First of all no fans was weird. I can't I can't speak to how the NHL returns the NBA. They'll be starts with football habits to fall if it does When the PGA a returns in three weeks I didn't see the NASCAR race yesterday. I'M NOT A USC GUY. But like when you have the big full field events in golf it'll be different obviously than just four guys playing into skin game but it's still was weird when the guys hit great shots or with putts remained for Birdie To win the whole and there was literally no noise no classic It was a little bit on but other than that on your wasn't it was not. It was weird of five as you thought it would be because it was so silent. But that's because it was as skins match matching four guys. I would assume when you get back to regular PG or golf hundred forty four guys playing a big golf course that without the knowle's it's GonNa feel a little stranger yesterday. So I will say this Michael and I talked about this in the opening segment You mentioned this. Everybody who watched yesterday or was part. Of the telecast mentioned this the great charm of seeing these guys in shorts carrying their own bags that was just great. Just great. Yeah Yeah it was. It was really cool. I The guy's really enjoyed Playing in shorts yesterday by the way was blistering hot hottest day. We've had in Florida. You know all year really really warm. Oh man it was smoking down there Whether it's been great in Florida rain a couple of times a before but on Sunday yesterday during the competition it was hot But it was you know it was such A. It was such a cool vibe to just see the guys out there competing and getting after her. You know it's you never know how those things are. GonNa Workout Tony. Are they going to be a hidden giggle? Or THEY GONNA care or they gonNA get nervous or they're gonNA feel the energy. The crowd wasn't their first time back in nine weeks. You just don't know what it's GonNa be like. I think everybody was kind of feeling each other out. All their games were very sharp evident Not Everybody was hitting Chris shots you know. These guys are creatures of habit just like anybody else. It's only if you didn't do a show for nine weeks. You know it might take you a little while to get into a rhythm. Shum you know. And that's what those guys did and I think as they moved along the Gulf got much better And then I think they. They started feeling it. They started the only energy if they started getting some nerves. Going with the competition. Even though the money wasn't in their own pocket it was for charity Your rory say that. And he goes man. I'm words. The number one player in the world has gone to the hall of fame. He's won four Major Chevy Jeff. I whatever it's he. He said he was nervous. Feeling it on the eighteenth hole where they were going for six games and one point one billion dollars it was. It was pretty cool man. I don't know what it was like to watch. 'cause we were down there the technology by the way we're television to he was. It was so different. And you know the crew was so skeleton and producers. Were not onsite. Delay in our ears and Just everything was so different than what your normal used to as far as sports television But hopefully we pulled it off. Hopefully people enjoyed it. Hopefully people enjoyed seed Florida players in the world. Play Golf at a high level at a very very cool venue Interesting when you say what you're saying about the technology and all I can think of is try to. Pti in your attic every single day with a second and a half delay all the time. Michael I know you had a bunch of questions. Yeah I was just GONNA ask crazy. Johnny was if it's something that you've experienced it you do what we do for a living but we've got used to it and it's not about us it's about the athletes and hopefully it was. It was shown that way so I was Gonna ask what your general of of seminal. We'RE WE'RE COMING BACK TO. A Golden Age. Course where position off the tee that give you a lot of room to try and get angles to holes. I wanted to focus on one is number six where you had the interview with Jimmy Dunn focusing on the relationship with Ben Hogan and the club where by design he saw a few players trying to play down the safe of right-center path to give you that traditional England and then he saw rory who looked like you may have missed his t-ball but he blasted over the sand. He's basically on the fourth. Tee Has the best angle into a tight narrow corridor ends up winning the whole the Birdie conversely then go to the sixteenth hole where you saw most of the guys trying to drive the glamour vomit into the ocean and you actually saw Ricky Fowler taking the traditional route. Which set up a Birdie. Yeah yeah it was it was. That's one of the nuances of the golf courses. That unless you're there you see it for the first time you heard about it But to see for the first time that's one of the things that was so cool was to kind of look at the things that you've heard about all those years. The sixth goal Benoa can save favorite whole spent so much time down there. Lotta history Very very cool and the guys yesterday. Michael Kinda told us They were GONNA play address. Wli They were not gonNA laid back You know they were GonNa try to go forward and try to make as many birdies as possible and put on a show I think it'd be played a PGA Tour Event. There played a major there The Walker Cup will be played there next year. If if something like that was played by these guys they would play the golf course differently and I thought that was one of the cool things about yesterday. You talking about the whole the way rory replayed it. Of course. He didn't have a great tee shot. But when you have the best angle coming in on Green's CETERA. That vicious then brewery had the advantage immediately and they all knew that that was what was so cool especially having guys miked up. Michael to hear them talk about. It was really neat And then you go to sixteen The finishing stretch on. That course is so cool. There's so many different ways to play that golf course and I would imagine that you know. Dustin johnsons played. They're a bunch of times. Mad Wolves Lloyd there a couple of times and rickie fowler loves being there. He's one there three times when he's played a pro member. So the more you get used to playing golf course and knowing those nuances of those angles. I would assume the better off. You'd be but I thought one of the things that was so cool about yesterday. Was that the four guys. They were stepping on it the whole time like and they were doing sort but yet they knew the position they needed to be in because they're familiar with the golf course Other than that Wolf. But you're right the the the angles The venue the the the beauty of it all The way those dunes look. It just doesn't look like South Florida. It was very very cool. So I'M GONNA I'M GONNA ask a question and use a word that I don't usually use. I mean athletes. This is their job. Their job is to play a particular sport. They are going to work when they do this. The word enjoy is not often use. It's it's work. Did you get the sense that they enjoyed themselves yesterday? One hundred percent on we were we were in a meeting. On Saturday morning The players the PGA to a rules officials. Who Were there? Stephen Cox Bark Russell And then they had you know it wasn't a regular TV. Chris it wasn't like two hundred people were there. There are only two announcers there Me and Jerry full so they had me sit in that meeting. We're not normally those types meetings to sit there and just be with the guys and hang out in the locker room and be around the officials. Sa- greatest locker room ever. The locker room is so great. Great Great Locker. There's no you guys were right man. The locker rooms credible but the guys were so happy to a compete. Be Be around one another and just like all of us who are either. Listen to the show or working on the show. Or if you're a guest you know like me on the show just some semblance of normalcy and the fun of of doing what you do came out in those guys and I thought it was gonna be a big gay for Bat Wolf Because Fowler. Macaroni and Johnson are established They missed the game this competing. They miss being around one. Another missed the normalcy of their lives Travelling and playing golf in front of thousands of people in person and millions of people on television and they had a blast yesterday he knew it from the on Saturday morning. That meeting they were going to have a great time. 'cause it just seemed so much fun to be together if that's it. I know that sounds crazy. But I'm telling you on you feel it from the four guys. Just how much fun they were having if there were fans there yesterday the first time there is fans at sporting event. Whatever the sports is GONNA be Raucous. It is going to be so much fun because the guy said the only thing they were missing was the fans they just they they. This loved being out there. They have so much fun. Enjoy like you said yes. They absolutely enjoyed every single. Second of playing golf again at the highest level they just didn't feel that energy From the crowd which they normally do and they feed off of that even golf people might not realize that even is it a Stanley Cup playoff game. No but in golf those guys feed off. The energy of the crowd of that sample Benepe is built through the when they get into a rhythm but they on there was a lot fun. So what you hope for with a lot of money on the line at the end and you hope for and it's a par four. It's essentially a Dogleg left and you drive the ball straight and maybe try to draw a little bit and then you hit your second shot up to a green. I tend to hit my third shot into the water over the green a couple of times that I've played their Connecticut on every level. But you hope someone drains it you hope someone puts it one foot and they win. That happened and you went back to the par three par three that I've never ever landed on the green on for a one hundred. Twenty Yard. Shot was address satisfying ending to you. 'cause I'M NOT. I'm not certain it is but I wonder gotta end it. You get out you know I. I'm not a soccer guy but it had a bit of a penalty kick kind of feel to it to finish show World Cup I you know the shootout thank God. They don't have that in the playoffs in the Stanley Cup. But they do have it in the regular season Do you love closest to the whole you know type of finish no but for the purposes of that event in particular It was pretty much the only way they could have done it. You know that role. It seminal gotta be off the golf course at six o'clock and we they they played. They'll six thirty so you know they could have kept going and going and for for various reasons for the competition for the charity of it for television For the club The event needed to end. So that's the way it was always going to end the guys do. It was going to end that way so it wasn't like it just made it up at the end and I think the guys were okay with it if I okay with it or to okay with it I mean it was fine. It was for charity But you would never in your life and the golf tournament that way It was a little bit of a goofy finish but it was predetermined that way for various reasons and it worked out. Okay wasn't because it was for charity. Worked OUT OKAY. But no you you want to see. You WanNa see Dustin Johnson after hitting that second shot at eighteen so such great shot you want to see them. Berry that pot and one point one million and six games on the eighteenth not a closest to the whole situation. So congratulations for being part of the first live.

And I'm going to preface bringing him on with Something that he knows I left this in an email last night on so last night is Sunday on Saturday night for one reason or another. I am texting back and forth with Michelle to foia and Michelle Rights. Did you hear about Phyllis George and I had not. I had not heard that the announcement was made that Phyllis George had died and I immediately got off the phone with Michelle and I called. Wilpon was not available to take the call and what I did not want to do in case Mike you did not know. I didn't want to tell you I mean in other words. I didn't WANNA leave it in a message. I wanted to tell you directly so we never made that connection. The reason I wanted to tell you if you had not known is because we have had conversations over the course of our lives about Phyllis George who was a pal of yours who you love you love Phyllis George sort of wonder how you how you feel about all of this though is just tremendous sadness. Tiny When I heard about it immediately I started to just you know here in Arizona at home with family. I started telling Matthew those George was a why she was an enormously. Big Deal In the in the seventies you know and that show that she was part of Tony as you know Jimmy the Greek and and they were different iterations. Of but Jimmy the Greek and Brent and Irv Cross and it just to fulfill is George. Seventy you know seventy years old to me. She was certainly not an old person by any young and young. Yeah so I just remember you. Look if Georgia and it's it's less than ten years older than me but every every every boy of my age have an enormous crush on Phyllis George when she was on that show on. Cbs and You know that show the impression you didn't have a million shows. You had a a few shows and at the time they just weren't that many women Jane Kelly had been on. Phyllis George was on there. Just weren't many women are years. You have somebody who is a former Miss America and Tony? I'm flashing four little bit but you know how cool it was. Rosbif Phyllis George was in was in Washington doing something and she came and used our studio and we got to actually just talk to Phyllis I admit I admit because we just share someone commented visit agent actually my book agent and she was just she was so to be former Miss America to be the person that she was. There was nothing a luther her her daughter. Pamela Brown is covered. The White House has done so many things that CNN embassy in covering the White House primarily And yes I got to know. And it was just she was such a just a nice person And no one knew. I don't know not no one knew. By the time I got to know her sort of who she was and the mark that she had left earlier when she was this person on this show. That was a door to show and was personally. So I'm gonNA I have written. I don't forget to it because this may be old news by the time we do. Pti Today but I've written a melancholy trails to fill us. George one of the I have said in it is that there had been pre-game shows before and there are pregame shows now the NFL. Today on CBS was the best of them by five hundred miles. It just it Jus- oh great with those people on it. It's just it was the best right the best. I don't even know Tony Out. Even if it was bad it was the only one I care about cared about and you know each each one of those people had a role and acerbic charisma and you are just wildly attracted to it. I don't know if the show was any good now was was was I was fifteen which means Phyllis George was twenty. I so when Phil's is on this show she couldn't have been more than I don't know three or four years removed from Miss America possible. It was that he was in her probably mid when she started twenty mid to late twenties. Yes I don't think you could have been late twenty. Maybe she was maybe twenty seven. Yeah but yeah so just I only I remember telling you that I that I had met and got lunch with Phyllis Jordan. Ah I feel like what what did you. What did you just say? Yeah and Lynn. Whitaker was the person that we had in common and she had been mybookie agent for for the books Charles Barkley and Phyllis his book agent as well and they're so let let me just say this about seventy years old man. She was smart. She was an ambitious. She was beautiful. She was talented and she was nice. She's a five-time player. What else is there Mike? What else is there there is there is there is an. I felt that way is obviously as I kid. You can't even sort of articulate and certainly as an adult so you haven't heard that I and I wonder about there was a time in which maybe I would have talked to Phyllis Tech. That was something that had happened in a while. And so yeah I. I need to get the times over the weekend. I'm sure there's a piece about Phillips. Devour that soon decide. She had such a such a great life To be married to Robert Evans produced the Godfather and Chinatown and his legendary producer. Then to be married to John Y Brown and become the first lady the First Lady of Kentucky and then he went on to own the Celtics I mean and then she had these two wonderful children and just went home to your mom for a long period of time. It's and I can't stress this enough. She was actually nice. No heirs. No heirs. Oh no heirs. N- N- never unapproachable. And you pinch yourself just pioneering suicide. She was as important to women. In television. I would list Barbara Walters and Oprah Winfrey and Connie Chung and I would list Phyllis George I would. She's every bit as important. She opened up an industry to women. Eight opening up that industry were very and you. That's the thing we're talking about somebody. Who's the nineties? This didn't happen all that long ago. No no let's move on. Let me move on to the Jordan documentary. Which has now concluded your thoughts about episodes nine and ten and your overall thought anything to has anything that you've seen surprised you tony. You know. There's certain things along the way fifty you just well. First of all the the thing that to me it was the star line was when Phil Jackson field. The Jerry Krause had told me if you eighty two an ex you. You're still not coming back. I haven't gotten over that yet. That's like four episodes or more But you know could guess as Leff that surprise me just sort of hit me I might have known it if things can still hit you. The amount of trauma that the Bulls had that Phil Jackson Michael Jordan navigated successfully to win six titles is enormous. We're talking about some dope talking about play. More minutes are the more shock. Finn have that but they norma stuff Tony Norris issues. That had rebounded and they didn't go to Jerry Krause but neither one of them thought they didn't want to say hello to him. Let's take issues to him and they just would have handled it the two of them Jordan Phil and I thought he might have been involved in some of it but it seems Jordan himself and if you imagine if you had a team today that had as much stuff as the Bulls and how huge that would be with social media in the news cycle that we have and what I think back on this whole series on the entire episode like well and their individual things. There you can. You can be taken by my relationship with his parents and most people are just have just learned back. Maybe people are old enough to remember. You can be taken by. Michael's relationship with his teammates I am I am reminded though I know. It is not surprising to me. He's a will. His willfulness is unbelievable. and that strikes me You know the the the rivalries with the the Pistons and the Knicks and one season of Indiana if combat for ninety nine. It might have been another season. The Indiana Pacers Dole just seem to lose their will without Jordan to be the foil and he lost to the Knicks and the and the six games and the Knicks. The eighth seed. So there's stuff that you go back over in your head I do because it's a trip down memory lane a lot of it for me and the people that you've listened to for to Reggie Miller and his last episode. If you up so that goes Barclay you got a little bit of bird in this as well The Dream Team this so just. It's so rich Tony and your to me that the golden age of basketball. I used to say that you sort of funny because I would say in the Washington Post at the bullet slash wizards. They missed the golden age of basketball. 'cause it started with bird and magic which meant the year after the wizards were in the finals ended. I don't know two thousand so I mean it's like twenty two years something like that and All of it all of it resonates with me every single bit of it but with Jordan telling his story is what makes this unique Jordan telling. His own story is why this happened Jordan. Telling his own story is what I wanted to talk to him to find out if he's okay with what happened. Okay with what went down. Yeah I mean one of the things that I took away from it was. I didn't think I could possibly. Hey Dennis Rodman more but now I do. He just walked out he just you know he walked out Scottie. Pippen walked out on his team in critical spot in a game. And you can almost say that's just awful but he's there the next day Dennis Rodman just walks and says I can do what I want. That's just me. I just do what I want so i. I CAN'T STAND DENNIS. Rodman what I thought that the end and the end is less about Jordan and more about Phil Jackson Phil. Jackson is sort of the unknown hero in this to me the stuff about burning everything at the end was so beautiful and sort of Indian like you know and that was. That was very impressive to me. I might like to see Phil Jackson Documentary. I might find that very interesting I I I admire. Jordan's will a enormously ended the series at the end of Seven. I don't know that don't go gone nine and ten but because you knew what was going to happen but I wondered if you were surprised by the notion that that Jordan felt that they should have gone for seven that they should have just said okay. I know we're going to stop but we're not going to really stop. We'll do one more it. Yeah I mean I knew this real time I look real time than the last twenty years I I've asked Michael. You want fixing and you guys walked. Many people do that so few people do that and he said to me recently. I mean you know since the series has been on now and I wrote about this in the column. I wrote for the undefeated last night. What should be posted shortly or now that? Don't Tony in basketball. You learn on the playground. Your kid winter has the court is going to a beat until Jordan giving kick. He didn't care that he walked away. Like he didn't WanNa walk away like Elway we could you know could have just said I'm old. I'm done but that wasn't it. He was like let's it up. Let's go let's play. Let's do it again. And he is so when they asked that question. When Jason asked that question last night of Jordan And I'm sitting watch with my family. I said Oh no no. No He's going to say no. I'm not fulfilled. No I know the answer to that question. 'cause I've asked it and I've had it I mean I've had I've been on the other end of that a little quick which is no we should have played again. It's only the the conditions were ripe for the balls to win a seventh because that was ninety nine was a season shortened by lockout the only play fifty gangs and then start the season February fifth so Jordan have had seven months off to to sort of recharge just Jordan but Phil and they would have had gotten Scotty back or if they let them go and they signed and free agent or sign and Trade Krause at that point was obsessed with Tracy McGrady. Who let's face it. Tracy McGrady was a young version was a two point. Zero version of Scotty Tracy at six eight was a wing. Who could do all the stuff? Toronto hadn't figured out what to do with him. They never did and the four years he was there and so- Scotty might have been might have to pay day and then they would have had to retooled a little on fly with with with Tracy McGrady by their coach was a full-fledged dude who won three championships. He wasn't the rookie anymore. And so if you could bring them back you hurt that Antonio was the first time in one because San Antonio doesn't have will perdue and have Steve Current which provided a lot of their depth. But they did have Robinson at Dunkin And that's a that's a problem. We know they went five or their own sort of one six th same championships because it. Lebron has one that belongs to this. It's gotta be the way they think so you know. Yeah I mean he wanted to go for seven. Tony and he would have had a shot. I love a shot. The conditions that forced everybody out. We're stupid they will just simply stupid. But but had they lost seven. Had they not one. It had Indiana or somebody else beating them at that point. They would not be as revered as they are now. Because you go to six and you win six. Wow Wow we're Tony County. Tom Brady's revered and he's six three harder to win. Not Sport close magic as close to a revered you. He's your guy and he has been mind five finals. That's right. He's lost a bunch the Jordan never. He never lost he was the MVP of all of them are never lost. I have I have said to him is back the thing. Would you take the six? No no you keep playing keep playing someone that's getting to Jordan. That speaks to who she is not what people think of them who what he feels and so you know that that that whole thing. Tony. I'M. I'm interested to see what the you know. The latest fallout will be and what the what the overall entire series reacting episode. But the whole thing is talk to you later on down thank you thank you a wilpon boys and girls. We will take a break. We'll come back with email and a jingle. Yes email in Jingle Mike. That's what I'm Tony Kornheiser. This is the Tony Kornheiser show comes. Tony's MAILBAG GUT SERENA male Jews.

Steve Sands of the golf channel. Michael Wilbon thanks to our sponsors UNDIES. And the PODCAST. Go and see by Malcolm. Glad well remember. You can listen to us on apple podcast spotify. Google play radio DOT COM. If you get the show through I tunes. Please leave us a review. Read some of these emails. This is from Adam Gurwitch who was in south Melbourne in Victoria in Australia. You read an email from your friend Larry earlier in the week asking for the segment. Color War stories from Wayne County camps. Let me oblige from Melbourne Australia. I worked at Camp Wayne as a camp counselor when I was twenty. Had the best of my life what could be better than playing sports all day and visiting girls camp at night as for color war. I never thought it could live up to the hype surrounding it but it sure did incredibly intense competition. Two years later I returned from even better summer. If only the walls at the Lake Como in could talk long cold winters in Melbourne. Always have me thinking about what it would be like to go back. Stay Safe Mr Tony. And when do we get to hear from Luke whereas Luke Michael still in? San Francisco is writing. Hopefully that's what we think From Travis Charles Clay County Texas Dear Ronnie or. Is it Dutch like Ronald Reagan as a county historian? I was confused by your statement that your school was named for Tori who sought to singlehandedly and the American Revolution by taking out George Washington. That seemed un-american unlikely doing a little research I found the article below which attributes. George Wilson Hewlett goals namesake. He was a civic leader and a member of the school board for forty six years and president for thirty four. He seems like a better candidate school named after I'm considering it was founded during his lifetime. Do you have any memories of this? George W Hewlett or being commemorated at your school know. The family lived in the area for centuries and you you cited maven part of the family but I cannot imagine. A school would be named for him. I am fascinated by the proliferation of myth and rumor and local history and how they become fact. So this is what I want to say. There was a plaque. There was one of those historic plaques on East Rockaway Road that said George W Hewlett was Tori who sought to capture George Washington. It would be unbelievably coincidental if another George. W Hewlett was. You know somewhere down the chain and have the school named after him. But I confess. I don't know I've always made that assumption from Rick Devon. Who is on survivor right? He's our PAL providers Georgia. My heart goes out to you as you were forced to choose between wearing a sweater or suit jacket. That is too large. If only there was a company you could order a made-to-measure suit from and have it delivered straight to your home maybe someday and that refers of course the Indochino and I should probably call them but the sweaters you have been wearing our beautiful yes they are Johnny O. Sweaters coat yes from Joe. Rounder loved hearing about the Dairy Barn. I grew up in. Farmingdale and dairy barn was a regular trip for us. Mom WOULD LOAD US. Into OUR PONTIAC. Catalina which was the size of Rhode Island and barely fit in the drive through the barn. Good old good memories and their orange juice was addicting. It came in big glass. Sixty four ounce glass bottles and they had had a red top two. I remember these things from Joe Checchi in Dunedin New Zealand. When you talked about the dairy barn it brought back all the memory of living incisive and getting milk and ice cream at dairy barn. My mother would create a crate of milk. She had five boys who drank milk at every meal. We would also get. I think a two gallon container of Vanilla ice cream. Which is I think so big. It wouldn't fit in the freezer so we had to eat it before it melted now here in New Zealand. We have something called the farmgate. It doesn't have to be a farm or have a gate but people sell what they grow from. Potatoes fruits vegetables eggs and even flowers in a roadside stall largest mall. There's an honesty box where people leave the money. Yes it works in a friend of mine from Vermont has the Holy Cow Farm and sells milk cream cheese honey in Vermont Maple Syrup. He doesn't take cash now as a sign with his bank account number. C can transfer money directly into his account. This is our drive through. I think the Dairy Barn in plain view became a drive through hardware store. Rumor here. Has It that Mike Tyson might fight a New Zealand rugby star Sonny Bill Williams in Australia. You're heard it here first from Derek Pittsburgh. Did we just run out of time? So I'll just use this when Nigel initial stop. Tony transported me back to my youth when you talked about your disdain for drive throughs and the problem with using one at the bank as a child. My father hated to take us to the drive through at any fast food restaurant. We drove around a lot for hockey games family chips etc so he would eventually have to give in and take us. Even though we were in line we never actually got our food. My father had a saying growing up. It's called fast food at better. Be at the next window. He would pay for the FOOD AT THE FIRST WINDOW. And by the time we got to the second window the food had better be there and be waiting for us most times. It wasn't so my father being a man of little to no patients with screen for his money. Back Meantime my mother would be dying of embarrassment in the passenger seat and my sister and I would be in the back seat wondering if we would ever eat as far as using the ATM and a bank. Tony it's a car that's provided for you by the bank. It may surprise you to know that NATO card remarkably like a credit card and often they use the exact same way. We know you know how to use a credit card. The only slight difference being you have to remember four a Pesky four digit code. Just try it once you can do it. Good luck old man. We're all counting on you. If you're out on your bike everyone is always do wear white. Who's your favorite picture? What does not sure do? Who's your favorite batter soap and see? You know I love you but I can't mom. Yeah because drinking so Now the valley living in Soda Spin Off. Pretty women saw my friends. They just cash s perfume

Watch out there whittled with the flu. The flu is coursing scorching through his buddies about it unbelievable. Did you wash your hands. Wash my hands of hands to your facing. You have no idea that precautions that I'm taking at this point but I cannot believe that Jerry has got the flu so you feel better. Jerry Lennon's no you got influenza. You've you gotta do what I did. Just stay home crying. Stayed Home Today. Why you think you should have stayed home yesterday? I know it would have been a nice day to stay home. Then I get in here and I were given even way. Steely Dan tickets in promoting Rick Wolf. I don't know what the Hell is places anymore. What do you mean I mean I just heard nor ID? We're giving away tickets. The bands that were popular in the seventies seventies. And then I just heard in an a time out you know this is like eight just I mean this is like my wheelhouse. I'm so why can't I enjoy like like a concert. Never give anything away. That's like something that was popular forty years ago. And then I just I just heard the ID that the fans of Rick Wolf. We have a special Rick Wolf show on Thursday night where he talks about the future of youth sports like what. What do you mean say programming? Yeah seriously have you. What was the last time we were in the idea of promoting this all the time? I hear it every every promoting coating specific show. If you WANNA do I dis you do. ID's and go promote the show few wouldn't preface the ticket giveaways as come see the surviving members. That's the problem you're like billy eyelash illegal making faces at the Oscars and all this other stuff. Like what what is is he doing here. Why is he not like this is what you're doing push face? I'm not making a push ness about steely Dan. Stevie winwood like right in my wheel. I understand that it is but I'm telling you we have what we have to do. What you gotta mix it up a little bit? I give away tickets. I didn't even know we're still alive. Four tied into the into Jones Beach Theater come on you know that for years. Come see Tchaikovsky Performance. What's I mean no yeah no? You're unbelievable you really are. I mean what happened to you. Do your son. You're giving away your because Jerry's flu bug Dr Jerry. Jerry was shedding yesterday sharing to you took place. I couldn't give to care. Yeah he can't he doesn't in care and guess what he shed his flew all over the place now if you and I get it. I'm going to be ticked. No I know you kidding me I I had like the norovirus oral virus a virus or my doctor told me that flew be showing stomach involvement so that probably I'm assuming and I want from what Friday to Tuesday which was four days and then I came in Tuesday and then we went down to the then we went down out to super bowl that day right and guys mass the fly with me. That's because you were hanging out. I use that massive today by the way all right what I put that in ninety five on God so because I ended up going to the pediatrician with supreme honor birthday because she starts getting sick like really sick and wheezing. Yeah so gina ends up sick too so I'm in the car with the two of them in the back seat driving. Sabrina and Gina to the pediatrician with the end. Ninety five mask on so people people probably red light thinking what the Hell is wrong with this guy but you know how it is you got a two year old. Didn't know how to cover their mouths. I keep telling her cover your mouth and she'll do it but then when she coughs she forgets to do so like a cat. She does that call for the tongue out so much doesn't know what she's doing. I'm stuck in this car so I'm going to do is put the mask on and then I washed my hands in that doctor's office. I'm not even know if I'm allowed to use the doctor sick but I go over that Dr Singh. No less describe yes. I was like I was going to perform an appendectomy. Like that's what I was doing. Doing hopping down the arms and everything and then the whole hand sanitizer. So we'll see we'll see how it goes. I mean I feel like at this point. I'm a sitting duck when I found out that Jerry had the flu because he said in the email. I don't know if you're on email now I wasn't. I'm out with the flu and I'd like I feel like people always say the flu. It's not the flu when they haven't gotten tested for the flu because it sound the word on the hearing that the test for the flu this year is in accurate as it has been impasse. At least that's what I've been told a really. Yes so you tell me. There's FECTA results which I don't know if they know or not but he said canoes say he got tested. He said he got tested swab and he did influence. You got diet of it all right well if they tested them and they say he has. That's different store. I think there are some people that are sick that Koga tested that that it doesn't come back as has the flu virus. They have some other. Those Fake News said Fake News Sad on Jerry's influenza now but the flus around there's no question about it. Yeah now CEELO's over there and CEELO's got an immune system that's like the stone worst. He's got like a basically it's a mesh immune system like and he's sitting on he's daunted he at least wiped Jerry's desolate prestige. Right now are on that whole household is GonNa get washed out. He did not he goes. I'm exposed to all sorts of germs. Kerak didn't care got two kids at home. It's just going to be a flat out mess. His wife has no idea. Thanks Jack appreciate that you're healthy. You're okay good good all right. Thank you Jackie. Yeah so like see how you just took that coffee randomly. You don't know who made that coffee downstairs. Were they coughing shedding down there at starbucks. No Jacket said there were. Everybody was fine. Listen I've gotten to a point of obsession with this. I can't go that far. I'm going to stop drinking. You know what it is you just you just got to get the flu in call today. Call the tax. That's what I thought. That's what I said before it was like at this point. I kinda just want corona viruses to get get over is. So here's the deal so today is what what today is Tuesday February. Eleven thousand twenty. So Jerry started the temp. He started feeling bad on the tents. Ladder the timeline. Because so. What's the timeline here? Al And Jerry in the influenza. When did he go get tested by the way? He's going to probably kill me for this. I I didn't mean to reveal that you know you said you this morning you're getting Kipah laws right this morning when you were getting makeup and he said Oh Jerry said he's got the flu but everyone says they have a flu and I said Oh he was tested because he I thought that's what he said but my point is that he started feeling bad yesterday actually he was feeling bad last week. Remember I gotta be. Iv Right said he he had the start of the flu. Strain a start of so maybe not technically start start of the flu. The start of the Tamiflu. I'm sure they gave him something Tamiflu. I'm sure may may be able to like distorted but you still gotta started going to do it. He says says the doctor says he caught it early enough to take the medication. He's taking the time flow. Murray started feeling bad last week that you gave me. I got it. Because he wasn't feeling good but then he had that basketball game on Saturday. Have game on Saturday and Sunday. And guess what he's Got Tomorrow Rutgers Game Eh. Doesn't he in Columbus Hall. Now he's not going he's GonNa get on that charter he's GonNa get teams the greatest team that they've had in like one hundred it years air take down Jerry's going to wipe them all out or he'll just take an uber to call him coach Paiko allowing him to come Jerry. Stay home I'll tell Ahah right now. Like biggs give us. Let's all right. Let's call slip it right and Chris Carlin hair down a little bit more weight this time. Yeah I I think there's no way I mean. Imagine that like all the people who talk what happened rutgers man things were going so well until that game against Ohio state and it's almost like all of them. Were sick like who knows what happened to that team. They're on their way to tournament bid and they just fell apart. What the hell happened? Yes so I don't know I feel bad because Jerry's got a lot. It's a lot lot on his plate and he's trying to get healthy but you can't walk in here with influenza you want and everybody else suck it. I'm saying so yesterday I was talking about Jerry and his back Jack. Golfing body is back now. Well Yeah because I told my I'd get them. Here's the deal I'm going to get him. Fifteen sessions golf body. And they're going to. They're going to work with his back because they have a physical therapist over there. They also have a chiropractor. And it's all about getting back into golf shape fifteen like you know meeting program program to help somebody that. Has You know minor back issues now. What's the name of this place often bought okay? And it's unbelievable awesome. Yeah but I told them I'd get them. I didn't know they had this. But they have a fifteen session. Okay get your get your body back in shape jolly straight. Yeah right and in his back has been bothering but now we're going to have to start this thing later because he's got the floor and send them over. There was not everybody. Golfing bodies getting wiped out right. Collateral damage as you like to say yes one of my favorite things so these three things that we heard yesterday. Okay that that could happen might happen. Maybe unlikely maybe likely we heard yesterday. Which one do you want to happen the most already? I'll give you the three one. Tom Brady the cowboys now. The Michael Irvin is on top of it. Even though you were down in Miami Tom Brady. The cowboys is one to the fourteen in teams in the playoffs and Major League baseball seven in both leagues and that new format that rob Manfred put out there. Where though the top seeds get the pick where they play in the play all reality reality? TV Yeah Okay. The second one in the third one Jeff. Van Gundy is the Knicks head. Coach you can pick one of those to actually speak into reality as they say. Say which one would it be. Can I put them in order of your daughter and he's been TV so long. God Dang it. I'm going to say Brady to the Cowboys WanNa see that most. Wow you know why because just to go be amazingly interesting plus yes it would also confirm when I said about a month ago. You know why all of a sudden becomes a big deal because you know Michael Irvin is drinking vodka soda with somebody and all of a sudden says you know. I could see that happening now all of a sudden it becomes a huge story. I I ask Jerry Right here in studio actually before we went down it was the week before we went down. And said how would you feel about about Tom. Brady being your quarterback down in Dallas and he goes. It'd be great now. I know he didn't want he didn't want it. He wanted he wanted to stay with tack. So this this whole thing you know like I said before. It could be a ploy by a number of teams Tampa Bay and Tennessee and Dallas to to minimize the contract demands from their present quarterbacks. I'd ask what is it exactly what this is but that's what that could be. But I I I heard that towards the end of the year at the at the at the NFL today. Isn't this classic Jerry Jones Chum. That's what it feels like. Okay so I. I don't think Jerry Jones or Stephen Jones told Michael Irvin when he had a I can't even believe he's drinking with all the problems that he's had he still drinking. Yeah basically said you know I got I got a cocaine problem. Yeah he did right and he's still drinking and hanging out. I guess I guess it's okay that you can. You can drink and you you go down that road that other Odeon but who knows what he was hearing or when he said it but now all of a sudden it made it like all of a sudden legit right because you would. I would think that Michael Orvin is on that inner circle I think to me. It's Jaume out there. They want people to talk about it. They want to get worried. The one is demands to come down because outside of this. Tom Tom Brady thing. What's the other leverage that the cowboys have when it comes to the quarterback now so they figure this is an opportunity all right so you actually Wanna Wanna see that? I say I personally would like to see Tom Brady retire as a patriot. Much like ally manny yet to two or three years from now. Because I think you know staying with Josh mcdaniels staying with Bill Belichick makes the most sense and it's a legacy thing and keep it there but if he decides to go somewhere else us the intriguing to places for me would be Las Vegas and would be the cowboys. Yeah those are the two places that would be amazing. I don't think he would go to Las Vegas simply because that division is going to be run by Patrick Mahomes for the next five years. Now you would think out of those three things being the Knicks guy that I am that I would vote Van Gundy as the head coach at the top of those three things. But I don't for a couple reasons. One Jeff Van Gundy in a memories. I have of him being a great coach for the Knicks. I mean I don't want anything to ruin that because I don't think that this Knicks team right now is going anywhere as presently constituted suit in Jeff Van Gundy is gonNA come here and not be given a shot you know potentially fail and that's going to go up in flames. I don't WanNa see that. I still think he he'd be able to coach a roster. That's ready be to win. Jeff Van Gundy in two years. Maybe when the Knicks got a superstar and get lucky in the draft. And they're ready to do something or do you on Tom Tippett. Oh No I don't want him either. You want John Cale Perry who also said that he's not coming to the net. Yeah I know I'd rather have out of all. Those guys are rather have Calipari I to give it a shot I just don't I dunno van Gundy to me. If the team was on the precipice abused by the way he left. I know I know I understand but I just that that one doesn't feel it just doesn't feel right to me. I'm not. I'm not ready to take from the knicks past and then put it in the Knicks present. and think that that's going to be sprinkling a magic fairy dust on the on the organization. I just don't think that's going to happen. And who knows does he really want to be a part of this. I know there were some rumors that I guess before. They hired phys his dale that he might have been interested to see really want everybody to come to the next gets a huge payday. I don't care everybody says say Thomas Larry Brown Phil Jackson. I I with probably I. If somebody went back and looked at the amount of money that Jim Dolan spent on just front office people just front office. Those people I met with them seriously back ten years I would say it's gotTa be somewhere in the neighborhood of one hundred fifty the two hundred million and all the other guys that are on the payroll like try to get Alan. Houston say something bad about Jim. Dolan John starks. Yeah those guys those guys are all the uh-huh yeah. Yeah collect a nice big checks and they're taking care of right so Waterborne Alan going to say that Word Dogs Did Bring Jeff Campaign Gandhi and what for five million a year for five years now or now. What are they gonNA give them? It's another big payday for him. You're my long the guy he left the next man he left. He was exhausted he left. Yeah I it's it's like all right I know and he was he. Maybe he's reenergized now but this is not the place to land for him right now. I don't know I just the holy on rose this thing and everything else is going to be able to attract somebody. Where's where's worldwide west in this whole meadow? It's just underground. Man They got they checks things out and goes back under. I guess it can't hurt. I like I said before anybody who takes a job and WHO's officially offered a job and then signs a contract and takes takes it. You gotta give him time to see if they actually have an impact like I said with Perry and like I said with mills said with Jackson. Okay assign them now. Let's let's see what he can do. And then the more you see the less you like I also the lasting memories. I have of Jeff Van Gundy when you talk about him. Being exhausted at the end those press conferences were. He looked like a Zombie like his is a bags under his eyes and he was Pale he was sitting there and like whatever Harry left which is falling out of his head and he was just sit there with a can of diet coke he was. We can't rebound the basketball. We gotta rebound the basketball just like basically collapsed. That's what I remember. Jeff Van Gundy the coach and then when he got into broadcasting it was like all of a sudden all this energy was back. And that's why it's hard for me to believe that. He wants to not only get back into coaching. But you do it with this organization. That sucks the life out of everybody. Who was part of it? Well you know I would. I would think that for the Nick Ban if you had been Gundy Leeann rose and borough Y west worldwide. I you know I think the Knick fan would buy into it and leased by a couple more years of patients. It's I guess it's how you would put it but you also know that the one thing about the next right now. They are loaded with all sorts of draft capital. Now what what that draft capital title means you know. Only time will tell but they do have a lot of draft capital. There is no question about that and you can say whatever you want about mills and Perry they even though they could not get durant the come here although I wouldn't have paid them. Forty one million dollars a sit and not play they have whoever is inheriting the team next next is going to inherit a much better financial situation with assets with it so now the question comes down who are or who who is going to spend those assets and how are they going to spend them. Wouldn't you feel better if you do have guys that maybe have better ties to the league or you know who knows. Maybe maybe Jeff Van Gundy you trust in his input as to who would want on his ended up getting hired I I'd I'd warm back up to it because I do. Who Love The guy and I have great memories of him but I just I? It's not time. I just don't feel like they're ready yet but I guess I mean maybe if you have the patience for once and he can sit through a couple more bed years in turn this thing into something. and He's already here and he's building that over word overused word culture and maybe maybe you got something I just. I don't know I was Jeff Van. Gundy I mean who's the last coach had had any modicum of success. So why why you know. Well how old is he. Now see in the sixties I would think gotta being sixties right. I'll be right has to be just google it right now. Just shut your pie hole over there. Jeff Van Gundy. He is a US fifty eight. So he's my age fifteen. He looks so much older than me. Yeah now now that I've seen that he's way too old to get back into the bet g like steely. Dan and Steve would have sure we'll maybe he can call in when we give those tickets away one of them real quick thing. The worst kept secret in the NFL. Philip rivers and the chargers are parting ways was was that like again thing surprising about that. He moved to Boca Raton like a month ago. Like we already knew about this H.. Who Morning Show with boomer Assias in Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo as gio for a little while ago and he didn't have any left wipe vista down? I did not. There's a little late now. I have one of those things in my office. If you WANNA grab one of those for okay now when you wipe things down in the morning just the spot. You're going to sit out for the warm.

Did you connect with everything. You're all set. He slapped me off to another guy he did. Okay he is the head off. Yeah I got sloughed off. You didn't get sloughed off. He's not going to do it himself. He's the boss. He's the owner. Yeah I understand that sometimes you get clients technician on it. No no talk talk. I'm kidding it's all good. Yeah we gotta we gotta work that thing. Yesterday ended up being a hectic day. Yeah so when things calmed down a little bit right some more health and inside the body household than I will be going full bore with the brand new toilet with the day that goes front to back more health inside the jeanine yesterday everybody got l.. It's up for me except for me somehow. Knock on last year's surrounded She's got a foot issue now. She's walking around with a walking boot. How'd the dogs The dogs are fire. It's like old. But they're firing firm nationally over there for birthday what she was going. Yeah Yeah Ashi sharing for the germ free you could take opening. Wipe your stuff down and stuff like that. Where gloves and everything yeah yeah? We're at the pediatrician. Yesterday yesterday on her birthday she doesn't understand how many people are. At the pediatrician. mccotter was little looked like a tired busload was like going to the circus. Doctors be we make tons of dough right now right. You think I guess who knows but everybody sick. I've heard these positive flu tests winner have been a little as you were saying into so you. Don't listen to the show out there at all. Well thought that I don't want to have headphones on preparing all the audio that we're going to hear during the update wants go ahead and go to the audio than you talk through this whole segment of the house. The pediatrician not always sick. Yeah understand that super-duper like immunity must have those really good masks. That were sold out right. No did not have a mask yesterday but she did wash your hands stated a Satan distance in remember taking the kids to our pediatrician. Dr Gilbert Dick Really Quick Guild Dick and he's a great guy great dude food right. Kids always had strep throat at one hundred percent strep throat. We'll bring is got strep throat.

I Love Dick Bring him to kill Dick in and basically everybody had strep throat. Wow now did you ever transmitted illness onto teammates. I'm sure yes so. You infected an entire tire locker room at some point. I'm sure that somewhere along the line either. I was infected or are they gonNA. Every team goes through like flu like symptoms. How many times? How's it going home? They keep you away stay. Well sometimes. Flu like symptoms could be also from party and then of course we're or no it's who the guy is and how long that flu like symptoms is GonNa last all right see force right so spring training workouts. Obviously right around the corner pitchers and catchers for the mets and Yankees hitting the field tomorrow and as we get ready for the new season major league. Baseball reportedly mulling these major changes to the postseason format which would begin in two thousand twenty two among the highlights. He would go from ten to fourteen teams for the playoffs. Three Division winners four wildcard teams now per league and the team with the best record in each league at the buy into the division in series remaining division winners get to choose their opponent for the wild card round and some sort of prime time. TV event. which would i? I don't know personally. I think that's kind of interesting if I I know. The baseball traditionalists were ripping their traditional. I think it's great having baseball. Traditionalists didn't like the initial wildcard. Either I get Bob Bob Costas on the line. Let him determine. He's Joe Haden. I WANNA go back to the world series no playoffs. That's got a right all. You gotta run it by him to make sure it's okay. Yeah I mean I to me when when people say that this water down the regular season I think is the exact opposite I think it breathes life into the regular season because there's so many other markets that will be involved that weren't otherwise things ab about this one the think that they're bringing this out because of the yes. Houston thing I a distraction. I say yes point. One hundred percents easy as crazy as we can. So we can get off the Houston subs hundred percent okay and number two trevor. Bauer came out and says you know he basically ripped into rob Manfred. Who hasn't he ripped into at this point? Well South the only person on earth ripped into his himself. Yeah he's just totally does. It's just you just crushes everybody. Let's get on athletes for not telling you you know what they feel. And we're we're getting a guy is telling you what he feels. Yeah I mean I just don't think that was a little bit of a strong call. Michener a joke. Yeah I know it's a strong reaction to like an idea that was floated out there taking make more money by more teams going to the play offs. And then you could use that as a leverage for your next contract. Why would you want that right? That's why I'm I'm all in favor of expanding the NFL playoffs by adding two more teams and only having one team have by just like what Major League baseball is trying to do here right now instead of two teams having a by I love him another playoff game. I'm thinking about that as I feel like there's like the way that the NFL playoff all right now and there's so many teams involved already. I feel like it's not as necessary whereas in baseball if that the baseball regular season is so many teams are law right there were the NFL. I feel like there's of of course there's those teams that stink that we know we're going to think that are in it but I still feel like there's a lot of markets that are involved all the way up to week seven hundred in the hunt. Yeah we need. We don't need it in the. NFL and baseball needs a little. I would if they did this. I would like them to shorten the regular season by a week or two. That ain't happening. But that's what I best sure and I think the reason I liked the what they're proposing because you've just we're resigned to the fact that all these leaks are looking at the. NBA is trying to is looking at reducing the regular season load from eighty two to seventy eight tournament at midseason tournament Biljana. What the hell? That's what I like the idea of you know you gotTa essentially call out your opponents. I want this team. Yeah but don't you think don't you think that internally these leagues are all learning something about themselves. They're looking at trends and they're watching attendance earnings figures and they're hearing complaints from fans and things of that nature that maybe you know obviously not. Maybe we don't see those things so they're reacting to things. They're hearing in their offices. That's their job right. So let's try to improve the game. Let's try to make it more interesting. Let's try to keep more fans engaged. And maybe who knows. Maybe maybe a team like Oakland or the raise make it to the playoffs under this new format and gives a lower left. Pay Team a chance to make the playoffs a little bit more consistently each and every year. Yeah big statement from Jeff Wilpon yesterday where he basically said nothing just to let you know about the whole failed. Sale would Steve Cohen. I look look at this. I love the the lead into this right. Spring Training begins on behalf of ownership. We'd like to share more information on. Why the proposed transaction has ended however due to confidentiality `confidentiality nondisclosure agreements? were unable to do so. At this time of the confidentiality NONDISCLOSURE agreements only applied to Steve Cohen. That's it right anything else you can talk about it. I don't know why it doesn't but here's the thing. So Steve Cohn already owns eight percent. That's right so you wanted to buy eighty percent of the team under the previous previous way this whole thing was laid out so now they're saying okay. That thing is null and void now. The team is truly up for sale and it doesn't require choir the five year period. If that's the case wasn't Steve Cohen. Just up the next ed in twelve percent more. And let's go yeah. Apparently things went so south with those two. That doesn't seem like a possibility. And I guess he turned off Major League Baseball and some of the other owners his tactics during this thing so he doesn't seem like a viable viable a viable candidate any longer. So that's probably why. And he's just going to sit back and hopefully somebody swoops in gives them four billion dollars for the mets a big return on his investments. I'm asking you this question. Yeah it goes back to the initial sale and how people are saying. Now this is all Jeff Wilpon fall. Jeff Wilpon Swab. It's Steve Cohn can't be approved by other Major League baseball owners. How is that the weapons fault? I don't believe that it is that part of it isn't no so then that that was fake news uh-huh it might have been. Yeah I mean all or made those fake news said make new sad. Yeah I duNNo. It's this this is one of these stories that there's so much stuff out there that I don't know what's true or not but under what you said it's not the wilpon but I don't own Manfred said in his statement at the owners rice. But who do you want to believe. Leave that up to the consumer. Jeff Bezos has got so much money. Just tell him the by. Yeah sure why. Not Care Can I flash you back to last week and then apply to something from yesterday tape. You'd like to so Jerry's familiar Edwin D as we're already down in Florida working out last week. This was the day you were out. Actually we both spoke with us and y one on one Here's here's familiar on the two thousand. Twenty outlook is the best. We'll be right around the belly if we we everybody's healthy. I think we're going to do something especially I see okay. Great very everyone can highs spring training. It's not so much about what he's saying we'll get that in a second then. Here's D.. As on his off season work with Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez Mail. He told me if I guy routine Ryan you know I gotta La Guardia Group potential. I tried to face everything what he told me. Everything going really good. So both very clear concise understandable answers right. No there's nothing it all makes sense Schori well-spoken yesterday arrives chiefs. Spring training officially underway at. Both guys are back to speaking through the translator. So I want to get to the bottom of this and find out if this is the mets are basically saying listen or Arabi all major league teams. We employ translator. When you're here as part of an official team activity he will be used because both guys yesterday? We're back to speaking the translator. And here's Familia on why. He felt the need to lose thirty pounds this winter. It was really overweight. Most seasons would be around two forty two forty five and and so I don't I never I didn't realize that I had gotten that far up in a way that far overweight. And then you've got D ask who doesn't care what role he's asked to fill or which innings he's asked to pitch the season helping not win so at least tells me to a certain inning hoping to doing that as long as the team went now. Admittedly don't know the intricacies of the player translator ends later relationship. How the teams get involved? If there's a union reasoning somewhere behind this but I dunno both guys themselves last week. Why don't we just here? They they sounded right to but you know maybe there are things that are lost in translation. You WanNa make sure that there's no mis speak or you know. Put somebody in a bad light because they may say something differently or use a different inflection or something like that get all that. It's just a week ago. When they were down there with all their mets gear on I mean it is what it is not gonNa make a criminal case out of it or anything but want to hear from these very fired up? That's all Masahiro. Tanaka said yes. Yeah yes he said through a translator he did. Okay did which the audio isn't even worth playing because it was a very quickly. Yeah Yeah I do feel so that way. They basically. He was asked for multiple questions and eventually they got w-well. CC's baths has said so they were leading him to a point where he had to agree with I don't know if he had to but it was said the astros cheated when he said yes I do take the more I read about this whole thing. They should just take the astros. Astros away from Jim Crane or she did they should just basically take the team away from him because he had to know what was going on Koa had the no I mean he skated aided by with that heavy hand in that press conference and it was like. I got just appalled by this whole thing and then put his son in his president rid of Nolan Ryan on Ryan's and son and Rob Manfred protected him. Because you know he's got to protect the owners and everything else I beat. It's that of course I agree with that. I know it's a very difficult thing to do. But there's no way Jim Crane was completely oblivious on there so Jim Crane can own a baseball team and Steve. Cohen can't apparently asked the Club by club that basically is toward shreds the integrity of the two thousand sixteen seventeen eighteen. Eighteen thousand nine seasons pointed to shreds by Code brinker. I don't think they were doing it. I don't know if they were doing it last year on. I'm not sure but if you read the Wall Street Journal article that somebody that's disgruntled. That's giving those writers the information they gave him. And that makes you believe that this thing was so deep that it had to go to the owner owner and the owner had to know they had enough take the team away from him. Let's call him you problem solve. Here's the full Tanaka quote. Yes I do feel that way in response to what Tabatha hit said. You'd never know what would have happened but at the same time you can say that might not have happened. It's kind of difficult to say so he didn't exactly go in all on on calling the astros out. Do one of the things I would do. I would take away the world series title. I would add to do anything. Yeah it does talk shows in a record book that there was a year where nobody won the world series. And why didn't they win the world's everybody already because because well everybody know he could official official. You'll get the rings back get everything back. They don't deserve it. Yeah I think that's just are. They don't deserve. I mean everybody knows it's tainted already I mean it just is it's is going to always be so you'd say something didn't happen that happened and also and also what else does it do. It also now opens the door for people people I pete rose to want to be reinstated enough and they're using and his group of people are using this as the impetus it says the why he should be reinstated. Yeah I understand. I know every single scandal. That's out there trying to get back in. But he's all I mean. This is another one of these things occur. Can I ask you a question. He's already his all his stops in all everybody understands the hit king like salt like what is the difference like rob Manfred goes goes reinstated. Aided like he's the king of the world that changes everything. Here's a question I have and I don't know the answer to this and I should know the answer this because I am a sports talk host but I don't and I'm not afraid afraid to admit when I don't know something very between what never said that go ahead go ahead. Who owns cooperstown? Does Major League Baseball baseball own cooperstown or is it separate entity no idea the great question as a separate entity why can't they put in P.. Rose if they want to is he banned from the hall of fame by Major Baseball or is he banned from the hall of fame by Cooperstown. Pete rose in the hall of fame is is. It's the baseball hall of fame interest so to baseball hall of fame. It is not the Major League Baseball Baseball Hall of fame and museum. That's why that's why can't he go in. Why does he have to? Is there. Some rule that says if he is suspended from baseball he cannot get into all fame. Perhaps perhaps there is to go to John in New Jersey on John. Hey what's going on guys up. Omar WanNA know tycoon. Cousin Brucie later really dance. He gets. No it's actually a soupy John John. I'm forty six. Yeah let's go together. Come on man I'll chill. We'll smoke marijuana out in the street and go come on some street. Yes all right very is hell Katie. What the banning of Pete Rose for Major League baseball all these selection rules for the Baseball Hall of fame were modified to prevent the induction of anyone on baseball's permanently? Ineligible list. There you have it coming up next college players get paid the morning show with boomer Esiason in Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo. I don't think Tom Brady's going at the cowboys I I didn't think of when you said it. I don't think it now when when Michael Irvin said it. I just think that. That's what Jerry Jones does. There's no other leverage for the cowboys. To Knock Down Dak Prescott Salary Valerie Dak Prescott his agents know at the cowboys. Know it so this Brady thing presented an opportunity to them and said Hey. We'll bring in Tom Brady for a couple of years won't be tied into that type of money for as long as Dak wants to be paid and this'll be great. We'll dangle that in front of me we can get a discount not going to happen you see Brady and and a cowboy uniform. No I can't can't no I actually physically cannot see. I can't I just have a tough time seeing that because I can't see it. I see him in a Patriot uniform. And that's it can't seem anything else. My brain cannot compute that especially the cowboys. I had a tough time putting him in charge a uniform. I still can't really do that. You could you see Mike Bloomberg is president. Could you see that. I don't know who knows. We'll see listen the Caucasus the caucus. No this is not a Caucasus. The primary The primary is a primary Columbus was the caucus now until the primary man. Spend a billion dollars is way in as well sure. These guys guys got a lot of lot of scratch which is in my ear. He's not running in New Hampshire Eddie. He called three New Hampshire voters. Who actually voted in their little primary? He's she's GonNa blow the whole thing up man. Maybe who knows. We'll say to New Yorkers going after each other. Yeah it'd be fun definitely would be a little mike versus fat add-on nicknames. All around I saw that Mike Francesa tweeted that Joe Biden. Looks and sounds like a guy who doesn't want to be there and I was uh-huh reminds Tom in has a New Jersey. What's going on time? What's I like to consider myself a baseball traditionalist? I like the idea of expanding the playoffs. Seven teams though. I hate the idea of picking your own opponent. That seems a little little like touching the money but you know as a mess and expanding the playoffs would have helped us. It's certainly would have. Yeah I know and then I I actually. I can't take credit for this this thought. But but Sean Marash was trying to troll met fans yesterday on twitter and he goes he goes. I got all these met fans saying. How stupid this ideas? But the second that they put in this plan they'll be screaming Freeman Yellen about how great it is that the mets are in the playoffs. It's true I mean once they changed the system in your team is a part of the playoffs and you have a shot when he didn't have a shot in years. Here's pat you're in and then that's where it becomes interesting if they do allow the teams to choose their opponent. Because would you wanNA face the mets with their pitching staff right. I mean I I think one of the bottom feeders and they make it in and then you have one of the teams that could play them or play somebody who may have an injury or something like like that would play significant and then you know. Think about the whole way that that's going to be written about all you selected us the play us because you think you can beat us. Yeah I mean that there would be nothing more humiliating as a team being selected by another team because they thought they could be and then they just beat you always humility. I mean but that that would be the thing that okay so you have the advantage of picking the other team but the other team has the advantage of using that as as motivation to beat you. That'd be weird right it would. It would be strange but it'd be different. I'm not opposed at all to more. I don't I'm not fully on board with picking the opponent thing. I do think it's interesting but I think that may be taken a little bit too far but in baseball hundred percent in for adding more team. Same thing with college football. There's a couple of sports sports and playoff systems where I am all in on adding teams college. Football playoff is one of them and baseball's one of them and then the other ones I really don't think I mean obviously hockey and basketball Kennedy Hannity Moore Team Right. But I'll tell you one thing that thing about the college at the thing about hockey in the basketball is that it takes sixteen games. Yes Ben Simmons and you have to win sixteen games to win a championship. He did not know this right right so you have. You have to win sixteen games to win a championship. And that's like a season onto itself especially for hockey. You know those guys are killing each other basketball ramps it up. They put a little bit more defense. You know if if you re our Adam silver what I would do it I was I would take out the three point shot. That's what I would whole come on. I think if anything goes the other way they add the four point shot a AH move it back to make it a four point shot and don't have a three point shot and make it to the point where it is you know. What's the three point shot? Now it's about twenty seven five or something like that whatever whatever it is yeah move it back to thirty five feet for a four point shot do that. I think you also have the three point shot now. Don't have the three point I don't think corona game Mike Dantonio the genius that he is just tells us guys. Just keep hoisting threes man. There's this he's not the only one a lot of people say that but I don't think I don't believe that it's ruining game. I still think that you can shoot threes and play defense. The problem is these guys in the regular season. Don't WanNa play defense and and the regular season the regular one hundred million dollars to do nothing. Yeah well that's I mean that's something that's GonNa be really interesting as sports goes forward with these guaranteed contracts is. How much does is winning matter to these guys when everybody is getting a a really really solid chunk of change that takes care generations? They think winning matters right now to the the Golden State Warriors Win. I will say it's a real. It's a real problem this year right this year. They don't but I coach a beer. Let them sit there Karen Joy to game and then just go home quickly. Can I do think they'll be motivated. Next year when everybody's healthy to go back and try to reclaim their thrown. I do think that they're not even trying signed to this year. No they're not no. You're right but I do. You don't have a problem with that What do I care to Golden State Warriors? I got enough teams. That saw curious. Did they're most likely they're not only pick but they're not any good but your team could get the number one pick. This most likely not going to happen of course. Not but they're actually on the Knicks are winning. Some Games aims man. I mean they won four in a row before they lost the hawks. I'm trying to get to that thirty seven number so I don't have to pay snappy our I'm still holding out hope little ten game game win streak next thing you know I got something then game win streak. Oh yeah they got a four to three game win streak and a four game win streak and has ten game win streak game win streak. You got a fever over the knicks fever. Yeah Yeah it's it's it's knicks fever. It can't be cured. No I don't know I mean. Come on at this point I told you I'm done with hope. After last year I exhausted every drop of hope that I had. I squeezed out the RAG to every droplet of hope Simon Williamson Kevin Durant everything else now. Now I'm just just sitting back and however the chips may fall they fall and I'm not rooting for them to get what I know. You want Lamelo ball desperately but I mean to me Eh. Let's just let's just chill and see where it ends up. I can't wait till the BARB A- lavar ball sitting courtside screaming at every of the knick player except for his son on your Nixon son is awesome. Everybody else. As sox VIC's anarchists right. Exactly we just want the worst thing to happen every single time. I each morning. Show with with Woomera Greg Saudi boomer and Geo yesterday you brought in a can of Spaghetti O's chef for the chef a guaranteed for getty and meatball spaghetti and my offering the cannon. I got the camp from Bobby who works in the back right. And that's what Bobby was eating for breakfast yesterday morning morning. Right and then I caught him last week eating a sandwich that he put in a microwave. That was out of a cardboard package called devour devour avow our microwavable sandwich that he said somehow gets crispy in the microwave Lou but today he is back there At six twenty this morning six. Twenty a M. Okay Bob. Dwyer was eating chicken fingers and waffle fries. He is really just stepping it up. I've thought life is upside tie-down that's what it seems like he said to me. E what you what what you can when you can. That's what he said now. He lives up in Duchess County. Right correct right. So how far away is his commute. Seventy five mile a mile or sixty four eighty four miles. Yeah I'm sixty four miles. What is his like seventy eighty so he lives in danger falls? Right Lop Falls correct. Yeah she's it's all that gas money he's just at the gas station. She's picking up chef. Boyardee our say. This is the great thing about Bobby. He's dedicated he is he's all and he's an all in game of course as we all know that we love Bob Dwyer just a little bit concerned for his health. He says he gets gas every day before he. Dr Stork is the pump gas every day every day. Or does he go to a station where they know heat pumps pumps he also gets gas at work after he has Jeff Boyer McCain pain. Let's go to Anthony in Long Island. Anthony what's happening. Hey other geo. When's the last time? Have you been to the house over the summer. I would go there all the time. It's actually it's cold the order now because I think the or how sounded a lot like the whorehouse so they changed it to the ore off but yeah I I go there in the summertime generally a summer spot Brian. What they're about six or seven times? There's three slips. There is three transient slips for the boat. And you can pull right in. Its It's tremendous and I love that place. I wait a couple of days. We'll have lobster Rigatoni who absolutely. Yeah Yeah Dick Blake's Leones that place. The Great Dig Blake Sleep so you could say A single overhead next Dick Dick Dick Dick plays a boom. I think he would like it. If you went. Oh you you gotta remember. There's a whole half of boomer that love stuff like that you gotTa stop at the Bussiness Anthony. You have no idea what I'm all about and I was at the Irish coffee publicize this week. I I I you know I get down with the real people. This was a man who used to clam these. There's half of him that has crossed over to the Buji dark side. There's another half that love love stuff like south shore. Oh yeah on the water diner percent. Yes I've got my point. I always make W I listen to you guys. You're great right and everything. He goes from trolling fans about Lamelo ball saying that they should move. The three point. Line of thirty five feet is about about two people that can shoot that consistently and then you say take it away. Yeah that's why that's why I say thirty-five feet because you know what they don't even play basketball anymore. They just dribble up the court and hoist up a three. That's it that's what I'm watching. I can at least in college basketball. They play defense. They pressed they double team. They play a little zone here and there and and they play their MBA. They just voiced threes. It'd be neat to paint a little bit smaller than emphasize a little bit more. Big Play down low. Oh you make it thirty five feet. It's very boring is people aren't going to be shooting he's anymore they have no big. Pass the ball down to the post of Christ. It's in the late. Great Red Holzman. Read our back when there was no three point shots and talk to me about how great that basketball was back then and how significant the big man play was back then. That's one of the reasons. Why if you ask me the center position is basically non existent anymore? I mean you have to be athletic like Mitchell Robinson for sure and you gotta get block shots and you gotTa have what they call Rim protectors and all that other stuff. But I mean come on. I mean how many three point shots are taken on average Shaw. It's insanity but I will say I think that the fact that the Knicks being bad as they are for as long as they've been bad has soured you even more on the type of play that's in the NBA. Because I will argue that if the Knicks were the box. Let's say or the Lakers or the clippers of the raptors that we wouldn't be talking about about the style of play. We'd be thrilled that they were winning. But when your team stinks and consistently has no shot and then you put on NBA Games and you see a style play. You don't like then. All of a sudden accentuates the NHL change some rules from the hooking the slashing. You know the stick checking around around the hands which turns into a hook now and all this other different stuff to get to open the flow of the game because the players so much bigger and the ice is still the same size. Yes and you know. There's not a lot of room out there. And they've opened it up to a point. Where will you watch a guy like connor mcdavid player? Sidney crosby player Matthew Barzel or you know our Tammy Brennan play. There's enough ice space out there because players do not wanna take penalties and it has created offense without really changing engine significantly the game now. They did change a game. To some extent with the trapezoid behind the goaltender all because her Martin Brodeur but I wish they would get rid of that and go back to the old old style and I don't like that impact on the game but you know they took the red line and the game to which is nice. Yeah I mean for for two line offside passes which opens the game as well. But I don't know who the NBA is selling to. which is the the younger fan who loves shooting and lovely grew up watching steph curry? Do what he was doing. I don't know of. They hate the way the five footer. Sure could I mean he's one of the few guys that could but you know yeah right but I mean our guys out there that could do. I don't know that everybody disagrees with the way that the game is played. I mean I I I do find it exciting. Just the province. We don't have a good team to watch like we never talk about the way that the NBA is right now at the amount of threes and no defense if the Knicks were a story every night the games that they were playing as they were winning and they had a chance at one or two seat or something like that. We'd never complain about that. We'd be talking about matchups and all they're gonNA play this team. They're going on a west coast swing and we we talk about rotations and different guys and all the stuff we talk about but because basketball is dead at Madison Square Garden. These are the things that come home up. And it's just a shame is a total shame like nets fans right now. Even other season hasn't gone the way they want to do. You think they're talking about the way the game is played. Now it's like when Durant is GonNa get lv when and Kyrie comes back. It's about Joe Harrison Carrozza Vert. Oh Yeah Jared Allen all those guys that's what it's about it's amazing I watched the capital's founders last night. But did you. Yes and what I saw was effort and what I saw this guy's hitting each other and going after each other and I mean it was a pretty physical game. He's teams don't like each they do have somewhat of a rivalry and they've played each other physical every time they play because of the players that are involved but man was was an interesting in your face type again. What was it to really good teams? Yeah I get it but to really good teams in the NBA tonight. The even the sixers have had their struggles. But he got clipper sixers. I mean that's ending Aright or is that game it's in Philadelphia. Turn on Joel. embiid Jimmy Butler trying to recruit the Miami. You know the clippers. That's the next thing Joel. EMBIID is going to get one hundred in fifty million dollars. Contract misses the first years of his career. And then he's GonNa WanNA trade well he has not requested a trade yet. That is not what are you saying. So you're telling me that Jimmy Butler trying trying to get him to come back. That doesn't that doesn't mean that you requested a trade. It means Jimmy Butler got on instagram. That's what it means and it's good as well. This is the next players start bitching about his is present situation in Ben. Simmons can't spread the floor for some Freakin reason. I have no idea why they don't understand what's going on. Hey Hey we we just paid you a one hundred and fifty million figure it out. Yes you should be. NBA Coach Nancy. How that works out for like five seconds Matinees Windsor New Jersey? What's going on that? Hey boomer Heggie so Two weeks ago I was up in Boston to watch The Primetime Games Celtics Vic sixers and popular fall got in for two minutes in Pali to bet. Two minutes is four three still cheering for him since the third quarter quarter and when the seven foot five foot or guiding there it just went nuts. Any scored a basket gotTA rebound and I agree with boomer You know oh I miss the old days with a seven footer. Dueling it out. Well I mean the reason why people like Taco fall is because like you know we as a society love abnormally large or Gerard normally small things. That's why tacos right. TLC exists because of the abnormally large or abnormally. Small things. Like that's why there's three different shows of of obese people on TLC right like there's one thousand pound sisters my six hundred pound life and then hot and heavy are all so like when seven seven times Komo News right here when we get into the game. It's it's fun to watch I was. I was watching Georgetown game this weekend. George Murison remember him. Of course your son plays for Georgetown. George Murison was in that movie Who Was it Billy Crystal George Murison member that Mo- horrible? The movie that he resents bill giant or something so my giant all right well anyway so his son was playing and I was thinking about. George Murison was a big guy but you know oh for for me I I think Patrick Ewing and Hakeem Olajuwon own added. That was that was great basketball. Was it not so you know it was and I was just laughing at that. That horrible movie Memphis whole. You don't remember. That movie is so horrible. I don't remember it and I didn't being Billy Crystal and George Murison. And what do you want from me just like a big mess and Bill said that stupid movie basketball. That was that a South Park guys man. I was funny I I was that the one who was the one. That was another really bad basketball movie. That somebody daddy with Whoopi Goldberg. She was the knicks coach. Then there there was also Kevin Durant was in a movie like thunder oppor something. He was in a movie thunder up. Thunderstruck Thunderstruck Thunderstruck. It is a horrible sports talk topic. Oh who's your favorite sports movie. We could do like the worst ones my giant Eddie Miracle. No we're not doing the best. No no we're not doing it. Leads that stuff remy Lawrence all right. You know I just I just have fond memories of George Murison and Billy Crystal and use jogged. All those things it makes me it. Still think parasites should have won the Oscar. Yeah I do actually I like rated Oscars like like in the last twenty years. So what does that have to do this year so now that this. This elaborated Oscar. I'm now I think the world is celebrities are just over with done with how many people watch it on the celebrity train too late. I'm not what are you talking about. Your celebrity me are not G. O. Does Not Happen Listen. You would've never you would've of never ever ever had a nick bed at snappy. Our if you weren't a celebrity people listen to the show. There doesn't mean I'm a celebrity AL local celebrity right Longtown valley this as a celebrity though. I love how you think. I should change my opinion on a movie that I watch based on the Oscar ratings. I'm just saying. Do you still think if you're the one best bigger ratings. Watch the movie and I liked it. I don't understand the impression that's what you just did. That's the impression. No that's that's the that's that's jerk boomer jerk you still think that movie should've won ratings. Renouncing means everything sucks so whatever you lost the ratings are down it has nothing to do with how many people wise I don't know what it was the lowest rated in like twenty years. That's all I'm saying. The connection between the WHO won best picture no it. There's the here's the connection. Let's write boomer. Does in Light Democrat that. Yeah but I what I don't understand is the parasite RECYC- connection decides aren't they know but anyway no but the point is is that I was just asking you about the movie and it has nothing as the ratings of the show. I was just saying you still feel strongly that that should have won the Oscar change that I don't know I thought maybe you had to think about it. No okay the movie I liked it and I say that won best picture. That's kind of cool. Do Different foreign language film one big deal like I if once upon once upon a time in Hollywood one that would it'd been fine. If marriage story. I saw that one that would have one. That would have been fine because I liked all his movies. This one one I was like. Oh that's good. Well I liked it. I don't go that deep into it. You know all right I really really don't I still wanNA see nineteen seventeen. I still WANNA see Gioja Rabbit. I WANNA see those movies but I like Ford versus for our. I WanNa see that to you and hopefully I'll get around to it right before. Being a father is a lot easier to watch more movies now. I squeeze him and when I can but I don't understand why would sleep on what movie I liked and then in coming days of fighting my opinion still think that deserved radio with me. The ratings are down but you like to toss out at those things and then just move on and then I call you out on them. And then you're like I don't say Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah like. What are you saying? Say First of all I'd say what is the point. I don't go blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. I don't do that. What would you say what it is? Now what is the issue that you have. I don't have an issue what you do because you bring it up and then you let it sit there and then when I ask you specifically about it you never elaborate I just I can't imagine. Did you get so tied up and so worked up over these things but this is what I want to but you do. You're the one who's worked up. Then you drop you drop it down into the conversation. Asian expected to just sit there and then when I ask you what you mean you never explain. I don't feel like I'm worked up. Yeah well it worked up you do. How far is vegas see that Afars? You see this impression of me you do. You're going back to something three days old carrying around some leads. What I what you do without carrying around some rob? You wanted to sit there and nobody asks you about it and when you ask about it you don't have an explanation for the next time you do it. I'll get a call yet again on it and say what do you mean. Say what you mean. What are your main? Say what you leave La value now. It's the morning show with boomer Esiason in Gregg Giannotti Boomerang feel priceless brassy using the gloves in the travel pack that boomer gave him already got to be careful with those Columbus's though because the gloves don't protect your anything the gloves are now touching stuff. So don't touch your face with the clubs because then that just ruins all prisoners the same as me touching my hand. So that's that's one of those things. I never understood like at a Deli Sandwich plays. He had the people with the gloves-on and then they make sandwich with the gloves on and they go and touch the money with the gloves. I'm like all right. This guy's got gonorrhea. Yeah right you never know but don't you think. The skin absorbs more germs than the glove like the glove. I feel like the germs. Might just fall right off it all right off offit. Yeah like the glove repels the germs germs. Go into your skin a physics class did you take is that. Is that a gas or did you get awesome guest cliff here some sort of sharp edge. I don't believe that that's true. I just think that if you're going to be using gloves you've got to be changing enging the gloves constantly or not face right which is sometimes difficult to do. If you got an Itch I got to take the gloves off each hold on you. You mentioned engine the The thing about the Megan Sandwich with the gloves. I re- VOL couple. Maybe two years ago I had to call the health department on this day. We would miss tally to and they told me. The requirement is only one glove like. What's the point of one glove? God and why is there. A requirement right requirement make come where to go to glove requirement as the did you ever go back to that place and find out if they change their ways. I did go back. And they did not change their way question. What did they do with these loves? When they're done they go right to the landfill or or decomposed? Naturally would what is it if the decomposing and they're no good. Let's go to todd now on hers. Todd Todd Yeah. I'm sorry guys you there yeah. We're todd what do you got anywhere. Yeah we're still here. I'm sitting in line dunk adults get my coffee shop for you and I love to hear so so jail. Yeah let's let's. Let's see aggression with with boomer. Yeah well you mean sounds like you got a Lotta Lotta Venom behind the VACA fourth. Now I mean listen man. It's a it's a talk talk show. I get worked up on emotional guy as part of the reason why sit here. People Laugh when I get worked up so I ended up just getting worked up. No the one thing that that I was trying to get boomer to say. Sometimes he does these things where you're like drops these hints on stuff. And I just would like him to say so he does. These things are dragged me and like the Oscars thing. What he wanted to say was that he hates all these actors who use their speeches for the political platforms and wish but instead he did this roundabout thing like you're still like the movie winning the Oscar and I'm like yeah I did? That has nothing to do with anything. That's what I think was going. No you're trying Kinda think deeply I think so and with me on this one hundred. I'm with you under percents. Right boomer. Doesn't like Democrats saly absolutely fine and we get it but like like. I don't know what that had to do with me liking parasite I didn't understand the connection because Eddie plays that that that is not accurate implied. I laugh at it. It's funny great. That's fine but there was no subliminal message about anything to things here's what you need a new segment. What boomer said what what he really wanted to say and also we need a video of Paul Turner? When he's asked to record these his facial reaction action he's delivering that powerful Voice of God? Right now that he he is in shape that guy ever see him he's jacked. You would never really. He's actually saw Tom. I don't know what was it. The twenty fifth showed up. Yeah Grand Central. Yeah he looked like Vegas You know steroid carrot top right any any a time on his hands to hit the gym. He looked exactly like that. I always picture them in like a you know a role del just like sitting around stuff and don't onto his face smoking cigarettes drinking coffee and just waiting for the copy to come in and reading it. I will tell you though that the best like political fights that go on in this building little known boomer and Chernoff these guys get really you guys get into it. It's it's a spectacled really is if you're getting I don't think we're getting into or we're having a nice conversation. Oh Man Air Fun because they were both naked politics. Start getting into the ladder they go back and forth is Great Spurs. You don't engage with Harrison. I could see that getting a little well. Now Harris doesn't want a piece of that really usually they keep it to the hawk. Yeah Harris wants to talk rangers. The shift he wants to go home uh-huh he doesn't need a piece of boomer at that hour you gotta remember. There are different levels so Harris's just he's coming in for landing coming off the high boomers going up for take-off right like this would always happen with me and Evan. Evan would do was still doing middays like I walk out into the the newsroom. At like whatever nine forty five is I'm coming the landing and he's ready for the next next next. What do you think of this when you think of this training? Save it for the show. He does a full talk show in the newsroom. Before actually talk show himself. He still has the energy he does. The man is full of energy. Oh all right so we covered last hour. The reported potential changes to baseball's postseason format which would begin twenty twenty two and would have to be obviously collectively bargain with the players association. So kind of pump. The brakes in all of it for now but the specifics are little interesting. Number of playoff teams from ten to fourteen. You'd have three division winners. Four four wildcard teams per league team with the best record in each league gets a buy into the division series remaining division winners get to choose their opponent for the wild card round and those selections and in the proposal would be unveiled live on TV Sunday night of the final regular season games almost like a little selection Sunday. Feel for you. If they didn't he'd go this route that remains needs to be seen down in. Port Saint Lucie. Mets pitchers and catchers did report yesterday. Officially wouldn't be as after an off season of collaboration with Pedro Martinez says some minor. I mean just minor. Minor adjustments have ready to actually put those two working off season. And I feel I feel really good to this going into the season advice. Good vibes about it and we know Jerry's familiar down about thirty two. You know some guys come in and say lost weight like familiar actually looks like he's lost weight so good for him even matters. I Dunno now. He informed us that Last year he was quote really overweight. So I guess peg came off easily and he did suffer through his worst statistical tickle seasons since becoming a regular big league reliever. He said Fried Foods Rice. Food was kind of the things that he had to cut off took him about two weeks the cravings and then he was good to go. Yeah and also he used to eat at six o'clock in the morning chef Boyardee Spaghetti and meatballs out of a can and also chicken fingers waffle fries. So don't watch out Bob Dwyer and apparently has also didn't shed as much because he's thin to begin with. But the mets sent him a nutritionist and in a special workout person good. They're being proactive. All you can make fun of all the stuff you want at least. They're trying to be proactive with these. Yes Jeff McNeil already down in Florida work it out. He says a new manager Luiz. Rojo's shouldn't have any trouble making out the lineup card. Since he's magic automatic so many of these guys in the minors already knows really. Well you know. Play play for him for number years and he knows where we'd like to hit and You know kind of what works so so what happens happens. You shouldn't have a problem. Like Mickey callaway grace. I like it too with Lonzo behind me and away. We go and now. He's gearing up for a lot of time at third base instead of bouncing around with all the money they sunk into the spring training facility and in the clubhouse get. I said that that's part of this whole if you buy The metro buying that as well so I guess that the the club has done in. Port Saint Lucie that the major league team uses the Minor League team down. There does not use because they say this is something to work for. Okay I like it but it's also always the money isn't it just basically now using it for a month month and come the also redid their Field Stadium Liam yeah tens of millions of. Maybe maybe. That's why they're selling. Because of the money. They spent on redoing a lot of money other places. I listen when it comes to the mets and any of it out I understand company has that up for sale the organization or just that the whole thing. Yeah okay all right Yankee should by Mike God Imagine Enke's could buy anything they want us. Speaking to the Yanks. Their pitchers Houston catchers report. Today I workout for both the mets and Yankees tomorrow as far as the pitchers and catchers go. You did have Masahiro Tanaka with the media yesterday eventually asked about about the Saying the astros cheated the Yanks out of a world series appearance in twenty seventeen in via his interpreter. Tanaka did say yeah. I do feel that way. So he's kind of led down that path ultimately gave you a an affirmative there but at the end kind of difficult to say so he kinda hedged it a little bit latest with the next New York Post reports Leon Rosas shortlist of head coaches. Once he's formally announced as the new team. President would include Tom Tomato and Jeff Van Gundy. The Knicks are off until tomorrow night when they host the wizards beat the nets. Pacers came down to the wire in Indiana. Hurt hurt inbounding. In the far side they get it at Dinwiddie up top seven checking to go one on one with Brogden right. 20-footer is three point. Eight seconds to go Brooklyn takes the lead risk arena here and you had three lead changes in the final half minute alone Spencer Dinwiddie with the dagger there. The Nets edged the Pacers. One zero six one zero five Dinwiddie twenty one and eleven assists only four fifteen from the field but he had the big shot there at the end also thirteen of fifteen at the free throw line. He was is one of eight nets in double figures. Kenny Atkinson's guys got the job especially in this place against a really good Indiana team. Chemistry was great. We had a lot of guys contribute. Defense who really good. That's that's really what kept us into game. We obviously didn't shoot. Shoot Well D. Andre Jordan was big off the bench. Lebanon points nineteen rebounds. That's the sixth straight loss for Indiana while the nets bounced back from their one point loss in Toronto the other day rematch with the raptors on the way for Garrett temple income. You can be a battle but we really want to get one before the break. They probably have the same thought. That'd be tomorrow night in Brooklyn final game for both teams leading into the all star. Break Toronto now up to fifteen straight wins. They beat the Timber Wolves last night. One thirty seven one twenty-six boiling de Ngelo Russell's Minnesota debut. You had the emotional return to the bay area for Andrea Agudelo.

Did he know that you had steph curry and Klay Thompson on the bench playing rock paper scissors to determine who is going to get up and take the mic and kind of off the cuff. Say a little something about their former teammate. Or maybe he did help it. In any event He was back in the bay area and his team did get the win. Lakers beat up the sons suns.

Anything Else Philip rivers in the charges oranges as we know officially parting ways. I don't know why they need to tell us that. Guy Packed up and moved his family back to Florida weeks ago. We pretty much know that that was happening late season. We all figured that they'd be in the market for new quarterback. Everybody was assuming maybe Tom Brady if he wanted to go back to L. A. and they needed to sell some season tickets which are not doing a very good. The job of They to have those cells that are not going. I don't know how many people are going to show up in that stadium to watch. The chargers will depend on whose playing quarterback I would presume right. Ah Yeah you know. It's going to be interesting Cam. Newton Newton us and I'm thinking which is the first domino to fall quarterback wise in the off season like all the other teams waiting until we have some some clarity on. What's going on with Brady? I see I see. We could see a franchise tag for Ryan Tannehill Down in Tennessee Jameis Winston. I think that Bruce Arians would like to keep him. But I think they're also using Philip rivers and and I doubt Tom Brady in that scenario but I could see them using Philip rivers as leverage to try to get him to kind of minimize what his asking price of a lot of names teams right. Brady Rivers Bridgewater Dalton. While free agent he has one year left on his contract at some point. We expect he's going to hit the you would be traded. Okay you think they'd go trade rather than cutting I can see. I can see somebody like Dalton being traded to Tampa Bay or Chicago right the bears. That's another right so thinking you want a guy like him to do. What tanny hill did to Marcus? Mariota push push push him and then he can't respond then he can't get the team going then replace him from the chargers and Brady is not changing teams and not not a possibility. I do whatever I can. Even Cam Newton in is a wildcard. I I have two from business model standpoint I gotta try to get him and just take a shot star power there sure without Cam. Newton came out and said he fully expects to be playing with the Carolina Panthers But oh okay new coach and everything else. You know a whole new way of doing things. The last thing you want to do is have this hangover quarterback. That is doing his thing his way. When you're trying to change the whole entire organization so it'd be interesting to see what happens? Speaking of quarterbacks as far as the draft goes to got a great report on his hip. Yeah as far along as he can be at this point that the hip is fully came back clean tour tour tour to Canada Outta tag a viol- add Alabama him. Jj Yes. I mean here that one more time or not to attack a vial Alabama. Oh my gosh just one word. It is like a Walmart behind him to attack at Attala Attala Bama. Jj being tag vile Alabama. I think might have landed or is flying flying back. Don't even get me started. The Guy would not put down his cell phones on an international vacation with his longtime girlfriend. Right and I tell you that he was texting. I think the entire time our group chat readily available two rounds of golf complaining about sightseeing. We went here was born in person. One hundred hundred percent okay. So it makes you very nicely. I have as well last year's Yankee Fan fest. God bless her. Yeah now do you think that they've been together for a long time. Okay do you think that she thought this was the trip. They were getting engaged. It's a great question so that's always the thing when you go away after a long time a big vacation like that around Valentine's Day she probably was thinking this is where I get me started texting. CEELO sure it crossed her mind knowing. Jj though you so you might have like preempted. And Ben like Jesse No. It's not happening to them. I could see that I could definitely see that now. Has He talked to you about furthering. His relationship tip is something. That's easy like someone who wants to get married or do you like an Al.. Who's like ads bird? It's on his radar. He claims you know student loans. I had to bowl. Exotics didn't worry about sixty months. I would've taken care for student loans. Well take care. Everybody should pay for everything for everybody. There it is again. He did say what he wanted to say. That data all morons talking about stuff like that there you go finally throw little Bayton of water comes over. Fish comes up all right. Is that all you got I. I think we're okay. Awesome each morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg Leonardi boomer and Geo it is boomer and GIO hasn't mentioned we're talking about a lot of stuff. I I WANNA get your take on this before we get back to these calls so we talk about how long it took for the giants move on from Eli Manning Right Long Long Time Yup and what the perfect time is to move on. It's tough now the closest I could say maybe the perfect time to move on was when the Ravens he's moved on from Joe flacco probably waited a year too long but yeah it was a year too long. Yeah they knew they saw what they saw younger though. Yeah but they saw what they saw they they knew they should have moved on. But yes all right but I will agree with you that they determine that we. We won't Lamar Jackson. And we're going to change the whole team just by that one player that one personality that one different type of quarterback that that we're gonNA move away from yes. I agree with so I think it was the reason it was hard for the Ravens. was they were going through the Whole Roster sorta turnover as it was so and Joe flacco is a little bit longer? So what. How do we judge? The Philip Rivers chargers thing because back in twenty twenty eighteen. Philip rivers was really good. I mean that was a team that a lot of people believe could go into foxborough. I was one of them and could beat the Patriots that year with the way they played against the Ravens and Lamar Jackson in the wild card weekend and then he comes back in two thousand nineteen and Ufa looks like he really really lost a three or four steps so now they're moving on from so. I think that they waited a year too long or or did did they find the appropriate time. The other problem with that team is that they were moving their moving from one city to another. They needed stability at quarterback they needed and somebody that they could sell into the new market which was L. A.. And everybody knew who Philip rivers was. I think Phil was very difficult to deal with on the field. You know. There's a lot of yelling and screaming and and all that kind of stuff that goes on that we don't see so. I think that you know. They just gave their their coach. You know Lynn Coach Win a new contract extension. Attention they're going into a new stadium. They need a new presence at quarterback. That's why many of us thought that this was going to be his last year in La and it turned out to be true. So I they never won a super bowl with them. You know he's Joe. FLACCO won a super bowl won a super bowl. Mvp Bet on himself got the big contract. He He Li- won the two super bowls. You know I can understand the loyalty that was given to him by by John Mara. Who basically you know to me? And he was the guy that Kinda like screw this whole thing up over the last four years higher. Fire Tom Kaufman Higher. Ben mcadoo you know. Let Jerry Reese go out and spend as much money as he couldn't free agency to try to help Ally Manning from a defensive standpoint that almost worked actually and then of course it was Dave Gettleman who had to come in here and clean and all this stuff up and they waited a year too. Long in my estimation they did but now we're past that there is a entrenched number one quarterback for the for the giants and it's going to workout great and I think Joe Judge gets the benefit of now inheriting a team without Eli on is you don't feel like the chargers hung on Hilbert's too long. I think every team has different reasons reasons why they hold onto players. Yeah because they moved. I think they need disability a quarterback. Now what about the steelers. Because the steelers now have been rothlisburger who is part of that same class and he had a year where he missed for for injury. Bazeley entire season had a great year. His best statistical season he's ever had he had in the last full season he played in two thousand eighteen. We also had beyond Bellini also had Antonio Brown's video and they were good. He didn't have remembered that he sat with them. So I will. I will say this. The thing about the steelers is that they have a culture around that team that you know it's going to be defense. I now again I think. Defense run game. I and their defense showed something. They're going to be a tough defense coming back this year. And they're going to give them a year to see whether or not he can get back to where he was prior to his injury. Now Brent Ben says he's going in. He's going to be good to go this year so we have to see now what he looks like and I I would imagine in the back of their minds. They're thinking who was the next guy I don't I believe it's Mason Rudolph. I don't believe anybody that they have in their roster right now so I would not be surprised if they do draft a quarterback in the second round and see if they can hit on one yeah. They've they've tried that a couple years though. I remember Josh Ryan Keep Trying Joshua Dobbs Landry Jones. Doc Hodges keep trying keep trying just keep you know when you. I have an opportunity. There's somebody there that you think that Mason off. You just never know the guy but I think he's a part of that team in the fabric of that team. I don't ever see Ben Rothlisberger for whatever reasons him playing anywhere else. The you know I don't I don't I do think we'll come back and be be healthy again and be able to play at a high level of the other thing about the NFL. Two things one is now the Jaguars GonNa play two of their games back to back games over in London. So that's two home games. They're taking away from their home fans down Jackson. I can understand why because they don't get a full stadium in shod con the owner down. There saying this is worked out well for everybody so those are going to be home games. Salaam bolted we're GONNA be home games. That are going to be back to back weekends. Wow which if you're if you're Jacksonville player. I wonder how that works out. I wonder if they get extra compensated. There's different tax structures. I'm not really sure about all of that. But you know if you're Jacksonville Jaguar player and so you have to go to play two games in London. I would think you have to be compensated for that. Obviously they're gonNA put you up in a nice hotel and they're gonNA take good care of you but you know that's kind of a weird thing. Yeah I mean eventually that entire team's going to be over there and we know and I never liked that idea. I'm not Jaguar's Fan and don't live in Jacksonville. So it shouldn't matter to me that much. I just don't like the fifty thousand fans a game where Jackson accessibility to get that many. I don't know I'd have to look it up but I know that they cover the upper deck like they do in Oakland. There's reasons why these teams are moving. You know either. They can't get the tax The local tax support the state tax support and. I'd just rather have make a move somewhere else in this country. That's my big thing. I don't know I just I don't like that whole deal and think about the times. Those west coast teams have to go over there. It's insanity says fifty nine thousand averaged aged last year Jacksonville. Jaguars Jaguars all for you know. And obviously the the city of London and I'm sure the country of England in some way shape or form are paying the NFL to come and bring their games there so they actually built that new stadium that is was is built for for American football as well as soccer. Now don't they say Jaguar over there isn't the way they say that Jaguar so now they're going to be the London jagged loss. I mean why is this so many different pronunciations of Jack Wires. And they're all acceptable. Are they jazz liars. Is Your your jagged wires all the time. Yeah I know but I know that was acceptable. I know when Bart Scott used to do those commercials here who Jagua that was his thing. Jan Wa Ah Wah Jaguars but not accept. No no no. That's say. Jagua Jagua Jaguar. I say Jaguar. What do you Eddie I say? Jaguar Jaguar Jaguar you before you just went Jaguar. That was a slip of the tongue. Was it too many of those commercials. Jagua let's go to Louis in Manila. What's going on Louis? Hey Hey man big fan. I wish getting on the morning but I can never get in. So don't screw it. I'm not A little bit about the dress. NFL draft. I'M A. I'm a diehard IHEART. Mommy's dolphins fan and you know the quarterback situation always been a little struggle I was like Tannehill watching leave and produce definitely hurt. But now they do have nice chance for their franchise quarterback. I really wanted to know what you thought about how reports yesterday came out about to route. Everything was positive and the factors healed Do you think the definitely a chance to get him. Or you think it'd be hard to spot now They might Detroit up. Maybe Nice I right now. I still think they can get them with. And here's the thing Just so you know the the bingos. Obviously you're GonNa Take Joe Borough and then the redskins lions and giants all have their quarterbacks and they're all all looking for different types of help mainly you know the giants could go offense winding could go edge rusher. They can go this. Kid Simmons out of Clemson but I think that Detroit Reut and Washington seem to really want the defensive players that are there from Ohio state. That would leave to at number five and Justin Herbert for that matter At number five. Four Miami to make a choice of Ya I would not trapped. I wouldn't after this injury. I wouldn't draft them and I know this could come back and be one of those trees and cold takes. I do not believe he's going to have is accessible. NFL career everybody's wrapped up in weather is going to be healthy enough to come back from this hip. What I look at is a guy? I had two of those on each ankle. Two of those major procedures for high ankle sprains and then ended up having this massive hip injury. He hasn't played a down down in the NFL. He is of slight stature. I just think it's taboo slide. Actually but he's smaller than you buddy's buddies bigger than column Murray but but he doesn't move around like column Murray the one they will say about two am watching. I would say about a hundred of this Stroz. He's about as accurate as they come. He is he. Can I put the ball anywhere. I mean these bad some amazing games. He he might have been the foreign away. The number one guy had he stayed healthy and Alabama made it to the National Championship. Came again and but you know the year that Joe put together with the greatest single season of quarterbacks ever put together in college football and when you go back and you look at it and you look at the throws that he made and and the fact that they were in a pro style offense that was led by Joe Brady who came from the same to his now with the panthers tells you all you didn't know about his ability to go from one side of the field to the other to read levels to throw the ball accurately the thing that really kind of jumped out at me when I was watching him later. This late in the season was his ability and run with the ball and move and you know that speaks to him being a allstate point guard in Ohio when he was in high school so this kid is a great athlete. Sleep well as a kid throw the ball on the barrel yes not even close. I mean listen. He's far and away the guy this year just for the dolphins too I think will be are there. That's going to be a decision for them. I I just. I wouldn't do either him or Justin. Herbert the I know. That's what I'm saying is going to be a decision. I wouldn't do it. I think the guy too many injuries in a short amount of time for Graham. See One. Here's the one thing about Justin Herbert into a tunnel by Loa that that really makes you think about whether or not they can be your aid type. You know personality to take over your team. We wondered at about Daniel Jones but the more I saw him play the more I saw him carry himself on the sideline the more. I started to believe that he can be the leader and now he's going to be the leader because there's no Eli there anymore. It's his team. I think Sam Darnold could be that guy. I know that Josh Allens that guy and know that Burr Baker Mayfield at least personality wise. Is that guy. And it seems like Lamar Jackson. Is that guy I I don't know about to a two. It could be a you know. Is he a marcus. Mariota type is the alot like a like a logo alot adrenaline Guy. It's like a just a perfect. A person human being. I don't necessarily know that you could do that and play quarterback living edge. You got to have an edge. Ta You gotTa have a whole thing about Justin Herbert. He could came out last year and would have been a top five. Pick most likely before saying anyone back. 'cause he wanted to play with his brother. What is his personality like? His athleticism is probably great. Like most oh skies are. I'll tell you one thing watching Ryan Tannehill play for the titans. That was a different Ryan. Tannehill that was planted them. When applying for the Miami Dolphins opens? I don't care what anybody says. He was more mature. It was like it's almost like he threw caution to the wind. And like you know what I can play this game. I don't give a damn what anybody says. Of course. He's going to be playing in the conference. That has Patrick Mahomes in it so he may not make it much further than he did last year but still he looked like he has grown into being an. Nfl Fell eighty-five personality now. Yeah a complete career renovation each morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg Saudi boomer and Geo phone on call that I have to take because I was asking many questions about this before and we weren't getting any answers so this man seems to be a an expert on the matter later. I didn't know how certain fish got into lakes how they weren't like connected to a larger body of water so Chris in Pennsylvania was. It's going on Chris. Good Morning. Hi How are you Chris. What's up man? Well my name is Christine. Joe Lissi Guys WanNa get those jokes out of the way. Okay okay like the magician. Yes I get the mind for you call the time all right. So what do you have on these Lake fish well. It's obvious that either people can put them midnight or they can get there by connected body of water but there's a third way mother nature's way okay. Birds Feet solely when when when you when ducks and geese and whatnot going into a pond or lake and they forage they get fish. Jake stuck to their feet. And then they fly to the next lake and their eggs fall off in that lake and that's Mother Nature's way of getting fish around. Wow that's that's amazing. And then those fish sometimes you get a male fish female fishes and they get together and end the little fish babies and now we've got a big insist you incestuous was fish family in a way in a lake right as long as the conditions are right if you build it they will come all right Chris. Will you go very good. So just say we know in Bartlett Lake like I was telling you out there in Arizona. You can fish for large mouth bass small mouth Bass Channel Catfish flathead catfish black crappie crappy Pena said Fish Blue Gill at Bartlett Lake. So there you have it. Wow okay. It's a lot lot of species in there. Yeah I feel like though. They've people have throwing those fish in those lakes that I'm not I don't like that. No of course not look at the the species of fish you catch there. Yeah it's still not like ocean shouldn't fishing or Florida keys fishing but it's as it's better than authority about a hurricane no you don't. Scorpions are out there. Extreme in heat is out there rattlers. rattlers are out there. I don't you guys love Arizona and stuff about Al Hours a big hiker in Arizona. Yeah enjoyed I like the mountains you know we are so used to the oceans here living here. It's nice to go somewhere. You see mountains. Mountains is literally in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Yeah but I don't really see them when I'm driving on the highway like those mountains you know like those are different mountains. That are out there all right and he loves mountains to I do love the Rockies Love Vermont Green Mountain's White Mountains Rocky Mountains. The amazing thing is once the water hits about sixty degrees stories out there in Arizona. Maybe air temp. You could use top water. Laura's jigs spoons and worms could you. Yeah they work all year round. Yeah it's in the mild weather out there. Yeah g-gonna Spoon Yup. You know what that stuff is because you're seamen that's right. Oh Yeah I very very experienced Just to sum up from last just our AL believes germs can fall off of these gloves. People wear yet this gentleman who just called. We've got ducks and geese that literally fly from one one lake to another with fish eggs. Don't fall off yeah interesting. Yeah really fast. So they do fall off. That's how they're making fish in the lakes. Yeah but not in the in flight because again body of like like. I said when you don't wear a glove the germs soak into your skin when you wear a glove it repels the germs. He did not get one scientist or doctor or something to call. I've been screaming that I had one angry man on twitter. Angry man it's not an informative mandate fighting with him. No I let him say his peace he can believe what he wants to believe so we just got to put some gloves or some sort of vote on the correct. There's nothing for the German the soak into it's a plastic love into your skin is porous right in the germs. Go in there and the inside of your skin and hang out throw party. Well they know what they do. Is they lay on your fingertips and you touch your eye. which had membranes not skin and then it soaks in there your nostrils have membranes not skin wow your lips your tongue? The whole inter-party your mouth. That's where the germs are getting in. I had a breach with the membrane. I know we've become obsessed at this point. Yeah did you see the last episode of outsider. Only part are you didn't watch the whole thing. I was getting sleepy and you have to pay attention show. I had to shut it off. You gotTa Lock In. Yeah you got that show is just yes when that starts if anything is going on in the House House I got a shuttle all the lights the dogs I put them in the kitchen. I block them in for an hour. So they're not in my face begging for something. It's I totally into that show show if you haven't seen that show gripping completely gripping on Hbo yes the outsider. I started watching the mkx millions documentary or series whatnot on sort of first first half hour the interesting all right. So what do you got man so. With the new reported proposal of changing baseball's postseason format take a look back at the last six seasons seasons. Why six that are no? But we'll just throw that out there to see how things would have played out under the proposed system so in half of those seasons you would have had an under five hundred team qualify. Oh five for or at least tie for a wildcard spot lowest win total within the top seven in each league was seventy nine twice. So if you're someone that's against under five hundred teams being involved in the postseason now. Of course you could make the argument that under this new system. Maybe there'd be some more motivation inspiration. Maybe teams a little bit more active at the trade a deadline to try and stay. Let's put it this way. You know these are not the Komo. I don't believe the commissioners ideas I believe the commissioner has a think tank and they're contin here trying to figure out different ways to make it more interesting to keep fans engaged to make more money to distract astros distracting. The Astros throws. Maybe one thing but you know like the. NB THE NFL is trying to go to a seventeen game season and probably expand this the playoffs by two teams in total one in each a conference. The reason are doing that is because that's the only way you can grow the game. That's the only way you can sell a seventeen game package to another network and now they're talking about possibly flexing Monday night right. How about that? I love Eh flex. I think it's awesome anytime that you can get some of those crap. Wrap Games out of there. I'm I'm in on all night schedule has not been great. But here's what I think. The problem is I think the problem is is that your two biggest biggest I or best parts that you've had our CBS and Fox. And your best rated games or the four twenty five games on Sunday and I. I don't think that they'll probably too much but I just like you know. How much more do you WanNa take away from to your best partners? But there's also protected games though in there right Sam. They don't look. ESPN is ready to write enormous check to the NFL. I think we all think that because. ABC is doing unbelievable hell. They knocked down over here. They could build themselves up a job normally headquarters. So they're going to. They're going to just throw money money at the NFL. They'RE GONNA end up getting a super bowl in this next cycle and they're going to the. NFL IS GONNA try to piecemeal this thing to keep everybody happy which is almost impossible possible. Somebody's going to bear the brunt of it and it's probably most likely. CBS and Fox in some regard. So we'll look forward to that New Jersey. Dr Steve The gentlemen how you doing. Hey I want to check in on you guys see Jerry sick. He was sitting boomers. Stop at time right and so we later about me shedding and incubator. I think I think I am but I. I think Jerry's got something completely different than I like. I said about a week after you guys flew to Miami right you got on a plane he got in the airport. He wasn't watching his hands. He didn't pay attention wasn't sleeping either by the way. That doesn't help too. So but listen I was thinking I've heard the tail end of Al talking about his. How is more likely to get germs embedded into your skin on your gloves? I'm sorry to burst our bubble but it's actually the that's that's why I what happens. Is that these gloves. Latex gloves that we use they have a tendency to actually hold onto germs for very long time so therefore when you go into an exam room and you put gloves on examining the patient you gotta take the gloves off and go on to the next patient and still washing hands because those gloves are actually very poorest was actually the opposite but once you you have something on your hands. While washing hands you'll find viruses can can live up on live on our skin and on Table tops for any with up to twenty four hours. Sometimes Times. I mean that's just go. You have to watch the keys. Washing your hands Dr Steve. You're you're just nothing bad news every time when you call us and say you guys last time you know you have your weather guy call you. Call you when the guy for this for football when you have you stupid questions about medicine feel free to they call me all right. There's no such thing as a stupid question. Dr Steve Come on. You know that very true very true. Now I saw. Hi Dr Steve. I saw a guy. Someone sent me this article of a man in a full blown tent. Plastic tent on a plane. Is that okay. Well well I think that the reason for that right that recently. Yes yes because this whole corona virus so the corona virus were learning remember. We talked last week. I said to you. There's something spread through big large droplets in small droplets and once again now the corona virus shown to be possibly through small droplets so as being more airborne. So that's why so many people are so concerned with this right now and it's spreading like wildfire obviously through Europe and now it's coming here to since it spread through the air a lot of times by By painting up like that so to speak theoretically. You're yes you are You know extensive. I think the smartest thing that the cruise cruise ship did was pull into Jersey over there. Because everything's going to dial big all all those gas tanks and there's no way of viruses making it through that survives way to Newark. y'All set Jackley. All right. Dr Steve. We appreciate the knowledge is always. And y'all put you on hold just in case Al wants to take down your number in a pinch thousand more questions. Cops they wanted to be filler genital infection. Oh my God what he has now who l.. Hope not yeah. This guy was in a full-blown long ten on a plane. Put up put himself in a plastic tent and sat on a plane. Well look we had somebody who brought a vote on a plane now. His tent on the plane. I mean what else love pony motionless support pony right so one of those actually. I'm sorry it was an emotional support. Miniature Horse Yeah. That's Yeah No. No rose a miniature horse that one day. WHO's very large woman? The picture in the paper yeah. It was one of those mini horses. It's not it's not really opponents. A Horse that does not grow past ponies. Ah Glad you cleared that up. You're used to be a miniature horse farm not that far away from where I live now and you drive by it on the way to the Deli L. E. in there they'd be like six of them in there running around and I as a kid. I just thought that's what happened like there was like. Oh yeah of course many horses around.

This year and Newcomer Dell and Matanzas. Apparently a big part of that was a great for us. That was one of the one of the better pitchers in the history of the game. In my opinion I think just with the bullpen that we have I think he can make a UH tremendous everybody just needs to combat honestly by the way. Do you think that they're more strip malls on long island per square a mile than anywhere else in the world man probably per square mile past probably because the per square mile. You probably right.

You haven't worn a vest here in the long while yeah went back to the sweatshirt. Yeah all right. I figured I'd make you feel a little better. You got all hot and bothered about that guy that called up and blasted your appearance. I went back for my you know casual Jimmy no actually do appreciate ratio at each morning show with boomer aside you sit in Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo there are talking about this guy. We've been robbing banks on. Staten Island. Looks like Little Puny Bitch. I don't understand al.. Anybody could get a bank rob- by this guy didn't have a weapon. Oh my God. He was like a ninety eight pounds soaking wet values. Look sickly. He shows up at a note boom. I'm a bank. What did it say at a note you know? Give me money any hand over the cash. I have the corona virus. If you don't give me money out of sneezing your direction then I'd give him the money right then I would just got off the ship. That's a different story. Yes well I don't know what the note said. I don't know if he said he had explosives on his body or something I don't know if he did not lead just not intimidating at all so we brought that up and now of course here come. The bank. Robson Bank robbery store is on the phones. I mean we. Nothing says this show in February the conversation boomer and I just had before he came back for break we'll look at the super spreader of the corona virus. Look at this guy. He's he's like a scout leader. We gotta talk about this then. He looks over. The phone says never mind. Let's go to the bank robbery. Phone Calls got eleven people say himself a super spreader shedder. Dr Steve had his way. Yes super shedder. Let's go to Vinnie. eastport Hello Vinny. Good Morning Hi How are you doing i. I'm upset The way you're talking about the bank tellers. I worked for Washington mutual and Chase Bank in Lyndon Harrison Okay and I was in the branch when a robbery card. And it's very upsetting situation for the teller and you gotta remember that. The teller is trained to comply with the The bank robber for her safety for the safety of the other employees and for the safety of the people in the branch. You know they're trained to do that. And I think if you're in a branch that was being rob you'd want to tell it to comply with his Rules rules and regulations listen Vinnie. All that makes sense and I understand but I'm just saying that this guy if he didn't have a weapon I would call his bluff and made me tell me that there's there's no way that's a bad. Don't follow protocol and you're gonNA screw yourself this. If this guy didn't have a weapon I felt like I was the teller and I could take and be like all right. Come around back. Take the money for me. I don't know that's all I'm saying. Yeah I can understand that but you gotta remember that it's your responsibility to Act as a representative of the bank. Thank and if he did have a gun and he turned around and shot you while you were trying to make a deposit at the ATM machine. I think you'd be a little upset. That the ION. Yeah they they they have Rules and regulations that they have to a bye-bye. There's no question about see I think if there's there's gotta be a judgment call there to you get a hero. I love when Ellie from east rockaway calls in 'cause she always has good stuff l. a.. Far Rockaway I'm sorry what's happened in Ellie boomer and Geo Oh yeah valley but going. Listen you guys are being you making the point that buys wearing a yankees cap and now they don't reform he'll be metcalf the next time he does as long as it goes his hearing is going to get some tickets training Zionist right Ellie. You're one hundred percent right. I can't he newhaven what's happening again all right so I was a division two college baseball player and I just wanted to tell you guys their motives behind these bank robberies. I actually robbed the bank myself in two thousand and twelve. I had labor surgery on my arm and that was in the middle of the OPIOID epidemic. So I got a guy from bridgeport who was telling me my pills at the time. And if you guys know bridgeport that's about the best area and he came to my house and I was not alone and he threatened my little brothers who were ten and eight eight years old at the time so I probably am the dumbest bank robber ever and the most I wrote. No I said sorry thank you and please. He's all in the same though. The lady still handed over the money the exact money I told her I needed. I paid back the bank robber I got caught within five minutes. I I did a quarter mile from from my house These were the police department. That that Got Me where kids that I grew up with and I was probably considered the dumbest and the meekest bank robber of all time. So wait can you explain the beginning part part of this again so there were you has a drug right you had to. You went and got money back pills my sophomore year of college. I tore my labor and the doctor to put me on pain pills and then you got addicted. I got addicted to pills. addiction progress from there and And so then when the addiction progress from there I was going into bridgeport to to get to get the harder stuff to get heroin because it was cheaper than the pills that couldn't afford anymore. Yeah and I was still playing at the time and I was still playing at an all American level and this was all going on no news behind. Everyone's back but the that guy was coming in my house. That was you know I gave gave him my address and and County are you where are you. Where are you now in your phone call junior? Yeah I'm seven years clean and I'm teaching baseball right now. I'm getting my masters degree at Fordham and The funny thing is I was wearing. I'm a huge huge diehard. Mets Fan and I was wearing a phillies cap. Just in case I got caught the phillies. I WanNa tell you that we're talking about. Nah I hear you man I mean I guess it's good that you can then everything's good with you now and you can go back. You laugh about this dark time in your life but yeah you went to the bank a quarter mile from your house. You wrote a note and Andro type the no duct tape duct tape my license plate play but like a quarter quarter mile from my house very very very small town. The cops know my car Within five minutes they were back at my house. I pretended to sleep but that they do tend to sleep. Did you have any sort of weapon when you were holding up. There's absolutely SELENA. No no no I would never intend to hurt someone. If they called my bluff I would just say okay and just walked out the door see now never intention no no intention of ever hurting anyone. That's what I'm saying about. This guy was getting away with this stuff in Rodney's banks Laura. Let's see I know I know it's it's I guess it's their policy. Yeah I don't know how much time did you do. I actually only served Four months in jail L.. Because of the circumstances and I had a pretty good lawyer. So yeah so now did you end up withdrawing from Go through withdrawal rather from heroin in jail in jail gail in jail it was. It was absolutely awful. Sounds like I was on the ground at sometimes like shaking. It was terrible I went from. I went from playing From Point College Baseball and within a month the being on the ground shaking a jail so quickly was you rock upon a moment you rebuilt from there though exactly. I haven't touched touch anything since then and you know the lucky thing is is you did not have a weapon on you. When you went into rob the the bank? That would have been armed robbery. That would have been a whole different situation. That was huge. It could have been a better offense here you know. You're lucky lucky. boomer wasn't the teller. Because he would've shot in thanks. I think he would have definitely bank teller. boomer is a scary scary all right well. Can I wanted to show that. Yeah yeah thanks for sharing a man. I mean it's but you have to also understand like we understand. Bank tellers have responsibilities and requirements. And they have to follow. Hello what their bank managers are telling them. We understand that yeah. We're just talking about this. One guy in Staten Island looks like get his ass kicked by anybody right. And if he's saying he doesn't have a we didn't say at all he had a weapon that I would call his bluff. I mean like okay. Let's see it sounds easy to say that here but in the moment and in the intensity of the moment I would the thing for the bank teller to follow regulations. Give the money away. Let the guy out. They'll catch him eventually. Like this guy. Kenny I don't know if they're going to be as Thomas. Kenny is but if they are doing this because they are drug addicts. They're not thinking clearly obviously away. Do you remember Robin. I don't remember exactly how long ago two thousand thirteen or so I really felt was the first time in in Long Island that we all became aware of this drug epidemic epidemic one. This couple went into the pharmacy out there. Patronized remember that yeah and then it was really like open season on the understanding understanding. Of what the Hell's going on out there in the streets and I had a buddy who's a former sheriff who was telling me that it was just horrific in. I don't necessarily know that has gotten any better but but yeah I mean. Those stories unfortunately are far too common. Those stories to get an addicted to painkillers going a heroin because it's cheaper and more easily accessible and then doing some horrible stuff to be able to get the money to do the drugs. I mean it's a it's a vicious cycle. It's Common Nicholas in Connecticut Nicholas. What's happening Kevin? Hey how's it going Nicholas. How're you doing I actually? I'm actually the senior vice president pence. USO says we're not supposed to talk about it But but thank robbery procedures. I just wanted to go over. Gio is saying you know you gotTa make a judgment call. It's GonNa be a hero I wouldn't be a hero hero. I mean we're trained by former FBI agents and everything on how to handle bank robberies. It's never a good idea to you. Know even think of being a hero somewhere touched on an earlier. You're you know a citizen can be shot in the lobby stuff like that But I've also had situations where I've had people followed home after the robber was taught by acquaintances of the robber and hostage situations can happen in their home. That's happened before You know people get tied up and held hostage Pasta General House as senior people of the bank. We're actually taught take different ways home everyday different routes from vehicles so we're not followed home so there's all kinds of things that could happen if you you know. Try to fight a bank robber. Money's insured by the government. FDI insured you guys know that so I mean you have the money like the other caller said you probably gonNA get caught and five minutes anyway. Yeah I mean it seems like that but aren't there so a lot of these banks they don't have like a security guard in there near sitting down like there's there's none of that right I mean to me it's like don't you don't you employee guy to Kinda just chill or something like that happens. I mean I don't know I just I would just hired a guy that kind of loitering there you know like what's Ted doing these days. He retired from the force. You know a couple of years ago. Sit in the bank for a few hours over in some some places in like Manhattan stuff do that. You know where it's more of a risk but like small towns. Usually these guys are drugs. Nine Times out of ten. You know the other guy said convicted. Some painkillers right. So you know they just WanNa get a fix they come in with a note You don't know if they have a weapon or not nine times out of ten you don't see a weapon Ah again you don't know if they have people outside waiting for the money you don't know if they have a bunch of people that are they going to go get your odds with them after a waiting outside somewhere or down the street as a lot of dessel. There's a lot of tentacles to this scenario puny guy. I'm thinking I can take. I mean you know what I'm saying there. Nick people uh-huh people walk into the bank. You know we see it all the time. Some people look like they. Are you know bombs. And they have ten million dollars accounts you guys know where all yours your. We're all the security guards. Are you drop a medicine avenue. Van Cleef in our pels and Etro and Laura Piano and all those places. Yeah Oh spices. Ring a bell to walk in. You GotTa look a certain way to get those extra rest perfectly and hair cloth and whatever designer sweater that you have on a design Lord. Staten Island is going on and Lauren high boomer and Gio high on so I don't want to downplay it 'cause it is really dangerous but I did work in a bank on. Staten Island for eight years to different banks and on one Saturday. I I was head teller. I was watching over my bank tellers and one of my bank tellers came over to me and and called me over and said can you please come here. And she had a note in her hand. Dan and the note said. Give me all your money now or I'll shoot so I look at this guy and he was like he kind of looked like the guy in the picture. It's not the same person but he was the smallest guy. It was a busy Saturday so I looked up the line full of people. So I'm like okay next. Please step down and the next person came out out in this guy just walked right out cold the blow in it worked and he probably went to the next branch or whatever the next bank down the block on my problem. Yeah right exactly forty eight. But he didn't rob is. We took a description with back on the tape to look through everything but I mean called his bluff. Everything worked out. I'll get in trouble the Lauren for break in protocol. No trouble. No one believed US like no one. Actually we had a note like wrote on in the back of the teller slightly one of the bank deposits. I mean why would they not believe you. I mean that's amazing. You know what Lauren. I guess you're not supposed to do that. According to the calls. But I mean that's awesome. You're you're not too cold. I probably wouldn't have done if I was there in. This downed branches guys going all over so now taking a whole bunch of this is like the fifth bank or something right. Ah Bouncing around a little scrawny bastard with a Yankee hat auto Yankee hat on. Yes unbelievable here. You got it you you got it so lawrence not my Staten Island Bank. You're not getting my like. She thinks whatever she said next. Yeah uh not the greatest. Staten Island Bank. deller I've like guys got I've got a gun. I'm going to shoot. She was like next. Take the withdrawal slip. We'll just get this guy. He's got around the bank over there. That is awesome that he had probably like meekly walkout. backout got like I guess it's not working death. This is going to be easy comic books now. In the morning show with boomer Esiason in Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo so we just had a caller call up and say that he robbed the bank when he was in in a terrible part of his life Hughes Addicted to heroin needed. Some money said it was the dumbest bank robber of all time because of the situation situation he was in and now we have someone on the line who claims to be the COP who arrested him after. That robbery Brian in Connecticut joins US Alot Brine. Fine Good morning how you doing Nancy. You arrested that last guy that we had on. I will never forget that as long as as as soon as it started telling the story I it stopped me in my tracks but yeah I was actually there that wow so how. How long did it take you to figure out who the idiot was that Eh? Did the robbery. Well he had a distinctive vehicle. Okay we've done with them a couple of times over the years because you had a problem. I guess but this bank called like after they opened and Saddam was. Just you don't get a description like way and it's interesting cornell. Put his house and we will put him up in the garage and closing your generosity is she and it was. It was like the robbery. took place Wholesomeness like wow? That's unbelievable it was awesome guy so talented. Really care his pass this close. They have just terrible. Yeah no absolutely was telling the truth and he said he was pretending to sleep when you guys went in there like a federal. It'd be bulking in the house and you know it didn't take long. He's called on staffers cooperative. And I I haven't heard a lot of time like I said I'm tired album. Or did he end up on a decent path. That was just all day. O'Brien great workman. Thanks for checking in and enjoy your retirement tire man. I'm sure that you are GonNa be a great story for him. The Tower of course the other guy. Well he's talking to both sides because he seems like he has come out of it figured it out. Yeah that was the. It's almost like he needed that. You know because he was on such a terrible path they put him in jail. He was able to detox and jail as miserable. That was for him out. He's fine he's clean them. It'd be really hard to be a cop in that situation knowing that this guy is a drug addict and is doing this for to feed his addiction right. And that's got to be frustrating to a certain point but there's also going to be a level of compassion. You would imagine right sure. Well you heard. He said he was a really good guy. Just shows you what that stuff can do to you. I mean you would've shot him in the face of rules dollar you know what man I just. I just have no patience for. Take a look. This is a good story. Came out of this bank robbery. They got the money back. He's clean this cops got a funny story. The garage door was still the closing thought. He put the duct tape over his license. I'd love to know he wasn't going to say what type of car you had but I'd love to know what type of car that was. Very distinctive cars probably like a canary. Yellow pizzo. Yeah it'd be like me rob a bank with my orange car until tic TAC active drive around the van from dumb and dumber driving eighty-nine sheepdog Yup. Okay see low. What do you got for us all right? So we've been discussing cussing obviously baseball's potential new playoff format which by the way is a long ways. Away Twenty twenty two. They'd need approval from the Players Association. All that good stuff but it's something fun to talk about. At least it has been for us. I think all three of us have been intrigued by certain aspects of it absolutely for our in house. Baseball purists will one of them. There's a lot of them. Evan Roberts yesterday yesterday as he gets wind of the loser comes out of the five o'clock open and starts to detail they report and what encompasses what would be the new playoff format. You get his raw genuine reaction on the air with Kim yesterday but our favorite part is the plan. According to Joe is to have this all play out on a show on the Sunday night the regular season and ends and have representatives picking teams on live TV. Think the NC double A. Selection show but just with teams making selections. The rights of that show is part of the enticement took potential. TV partners. I think of it like the NBA lottery like you. Would you would hold up your selection and the Yankees choose. Choose to play and you would hold up. Yes you know. This is horrible. This is part of why I feel more emboldened by repeating that. Rob Manfred is quickly becoming the worst commissioner in Sports Court while this is a horrible idea to horrible idea. Not Happy. Didn't make that groaning noise underneath what was saying kind. Thank Joe Would have done. Had he been there. Yeah it sounds exactly what they grown a lot. Yeah that's Joe. What the hell are they doing? I don't know no groaning Bangor. Those Mary worked up about. Yeah there's a little bit the evidence in the back of that so you've got like the Joe. The Evan comes from working here ally those I been here for awhile. You tend to make a lot of crazy. Sounds and noises noises. I think so joe for sure ooh ooh Jerry. Ah He's doing at home right now with the flu. Balancing sounds like El Coco. Got A hold all the Jerry from you. Guys don't know that but from the outsider seldom possessed Jerry RECCO so anyway I'm getting I'm starting to. I think I'm settled coming over me. That's in your head yourself into. Yeah come on over the last hour. I'm telling you something happened robberies something avenue. I don't know now. Jerry did sit in that seat last week. Yeah I know I know. He's definitely shouting. And that's of course shedding happens not a fan after he got that out of the system and did put up a poll. You know they love the polls around here. Are you in favor of the new idea. And I don't side with any of the three options you have. Yes it's great. No Oh I don't like it or worst idea in history. I could've used a fourth option like I'M I. I'm okay with it. So worst idea in history is leading the way approaching nine two thousand votes at forty six percent so little hyperbole perhaps but there you have it. Did you guys read the twelve twelve. I guess we the power to Attack Vile Al Waleed really interesting say. Jj's wearing off on me all all right latest on the Knicks New York Post reports. Leon Roses Shortlist for head coaching candidates. Once he actually right. Well we're waiting on that but apparently you know behind back-channelling behind closed doors. They are compiling a list due diligence. Well he has to what he has been former clients. What's the word they say to get to not repeat the word when they back out divest? That's the divest himself representing all these these NBA types types of Tom. Thibodeau and Jeff Van Gundy on the last guy. I know you're itching to get to another call. Their tangible thing Mike in Belmar going on Mike. Yeah Hey what's going on. What's going on brother all right so we were talking about all these? Like robbery and stuff so I I guess it was going to go. I'm in a liquor store. Picking up my little six pack of beer and Just I walked in with a gun. I think he was gonna Lousy Okay because anyway he pulls out the gun. I wasted no time. I'm a lefty boom. You'll like that and I just clock them right in the tick tock knocking out there in like two minutes here hero. You're actually hopefully. Oh you got free beer for life now liquor store. Well Yeah I do know the guy and I look no. I think you're right. I walked in there and everybody wins. That's awesome man. I know that there's like all the bank people were getting all worked up about the protocol and this could happen. It could be a hostage situation. I still believe that you can make a judgment call on this spot alike Like lower from Staten Island. Did like this guy. Give me a break next ext or this guy did. Yeah okay. You're drunk bowel right in the face. ACT QUICKLY I can. I just say one thing here. If you're ever in this situation don't do anything stupid and please. I'm not going to be at home. I understand that that's not gonNa go to liquor stores and you would have bars and you go to banks and you do all the normal things that we all do. I would just is be smart and make a judgment call on. Can I take this guy. Can I not take you. GotTa you gotTa Wipe mother-in-law a daughter to dog parents parents you go to the minded minded because I think your mother in law has a big impact your life at my right. She's over a lot. Yeah so that's why I put her there. Yeah so I'm just thinking you got all these people around you gotta be solid GonNa make the right decision. I listen. I've I've made all the right decisions to get here. I'm just saying in in that particular situation I'll make a judgment call. Look if if sean got a knock out a robber. Knockout Iraq Sean. Avery Goes Kung Fu on somebody. It's one thing if you do nothing. You don't even like athletic like I don't ever pull a muscle will not I will fight. The ADRENALIN Reynolds will take over.
