"Room can even get dirty and disgusting but kinda awesome to that like you see like you. Don't want the super nice pool when you're grinding. You know it's like the original rocky like you want you want to like you wanna be in the in the you know the grimy you know situation so that when you when you finally qualify for that fancy meat and you go to indianapolis and you see that incredible now to try and you're like wow right. Yeah you want to train in that fancy place. if you're like you guys are like the hickory hoosiers story. The word vay makes me very uncomfortable like i should not like. I'm just saying. I swam in the same pools or like i don't know good for katie. She's the time goat unbelievable athlete. Shit shoutout jeeze. that'd be horrible pool. Nice emma mc in australian we winningest female australian swimmer ever yet. Thank yup. I think the winning winning a swimmer. I mean the period seven medals seven gold. Yeah yeah so the most better if you have have gotten that i think we'll kale got five gold and the only other swimmers to do that are phelps and mark spitz and biondi biondi and eighty-eight right and still and then there's speedskater eric. Hi eric heiden. Yeah got my all time hero. That guy Also cool to see some new faces. We got bobby fink in the distance races which he's a guy he started the converse of katie. Like he was somebody. No one had really knew anything about who really benefited from the extra year to like hone his strength and endurance and he goes from like unknown to absolute legend. Being the first american and thirty seven years to win the fifteen hundred and then also wins the eight hundred which is cool very cool. Little sort of side anecdote with that typically. It's always been the fifteen hundred meters for the men and the eight hundred meters for the women. there has never been until this olympia. A fifteen hundred meters for the women because historically it was considered too difficult for women can't swim. It's and the fact that it took until twenty twenty one to rectify. That is out of control. Strange thing to think when a woman was one of the first people swim across the english channel anyway. The been legendary for many many years the The last person on the i know so ahead of the curve always read read things so well. I do want to spend a couple of minutes talking about this guy. Michael andrew to me kind of the most interesting curious swimmer on the olympic team. This is a guy who i mean. I've been aware of this guy forever. Because even though he's how old is he now he's like twenty two or and he's pretty young do but this is a kid who his entire life has been expected to inherit phelps Legacy because when he was a kid he broke over. One hundred national age group records like he completely rewrote all the national age group records as he grew up like basically breaking all of them. So more than any other ever has more than michael phelps. The obvious expectation is like this guy's the second coming right he's gonna come in and he's gonna crush And he failed to make the olympic team in rio. I think he was like seventeen at the time. So that makes him twenty three or twenty now by yeah So he makes the team this year and Ends up on the four by one hundred. Medley relay setting a world record so he gets a gold medal. He doesn't meddle in any in the individual event. And what makes them so. Curious is the fact that this guy has a very unique original way of training that contravenes all conventional wisdom so most swimmers swam twice a day. They're putting in anywhere between twelve and twenty thousand meters a day a lot of volume plus dry lands and you know weight room and all kinds of other stuff. He Is coached like home-schooled coach by his dad managed buys. Mom grew up in kansas swimming in a pool in his backyard. Like didn't do the club thing where you go and swim with other people like just basically was in the backyard with his dad right this single lane pool that he trained and now they live in encinitas. I think in in san diego But he's remained kind of home schooled and under his parents control control. Probably the wrong word but influence And his dad In conjunction with another coach have developed this thing called. Us rpt p. t. which stands for ultra short race pace training so whereas most farmers are training twelve to twenty thousand yards or meters day. He swimming like three thousand a day which is nothing but all of the training is at race pace. Everything is like lung-busting all out efforts approximate your your race to the extent possible. Make the most of that compress period of time and call it a day. The idea being that most swimmers are putting these junk miles or too soon back and forth in the pool. It's not really doing anything Which is you know very controversial and it's interesting to think about because on the one hand look. This guy made the team. He was won a gold medal in the four. By one. hundred medley relay. He got fourth one hundred breastroke. He's still early in his career So he's had tremendous success. But basically when i look at this particularly from an endurance athletes perspective. I see a guy who.

We don't know what we're gonna miss right. We have a schedule. We didn't have the internet so it was like we don't what's come up. You're not having that technology back then. I am mad at you about the internet taking as long as it did. That is what i'm angry about. It was tough but fair. We should have sped it up and down on this. I know you guys are in a time travel. And i'm just saying go back further. That's all you know. It was weird because being from canada. There's always some winter olympics you guys dominant but like finding your person who might have a chance. I remember ben. Johnson was a guy and then he got busted for doping but like was that i always feel slightly guilty that the us has like fifty thousand medals. Olympic program doesn't have the same funding. And that's kind of like the whole thing. Which is the candidates thing. in general. We put our money into schools in. But yeah you do you do feel. I very prideful if canadians in the top six. yeah finisher place. You're like oh he's there because you know what they overcame so funny but it's so true. It's like if you were canadian. Who who is in an olympic program. The winter olympics does obviously have more money but in summer olympics. If you're a canadian that managed to get there all that right away. Yeah just be in there. You're like you've done it. Mash national hero. Honestly because it's yeah there's no we don't put any money at all for swimmers. You know no no no good luck. I'm trying to remember if there's ever been like fame. There have been a couple of famous canadian. Olympians right other than outside of like hockey and stuff and i think johnson johnson is definitely up there. Yeah the doping. Yeah that was. That was a blight. It's yeah the winter we really just dominate. In the winter king a team sport it is just winter wintering. There is a team sport even the ski so that they're acting team. They i think they view it that way thank you. Canada has the only athlete in history to win multiple medals at both the summer and winter olympics. That's right okay. Who's that. Claire clara hughes. That's right. I shouldn't hundreds because the name clara his name. I do like the name. Clara clara pardo. Do i like that. No i would not have been consideration. Are you thinking of adopting or mirror. Marrying someone clara. Some eighty year old widower were gentlemen. We know it's all in a spectrum. It's fluid to me thank you. You're welcome.

I should've known her because she is one of our. We don't have a lot of them. There was a a pairs skating team. That was big. What were they had a few. But the most recent one. Oh oh this is bad any canadians. right now. are screaming at me. what was you'll say it and i'll be like of course but yes. They were a huge like people wanted them to be a couple a huge thing and they weren't a couple and you know that was a yeah people really got invested in them and their story something about in general figure skating people that just draws in a maybe a personality type. There'd be way do invested in the lives of the people which is kinda funny because it's export that no one cares about except during the two weeks of the winter olympics. Tessa virtue and scott. More than buddy. I wouldn't support. You gotta get that different charger. You can't get the tax break for supporting right to root for.

"Eight people to do an ultrasound on a python. Which ones is eric heiden. So this is a story that happened at chester zoo in two thousand and twelve and it was on an extremely big python so maybe with some smaller pythons. It'll take fewer people baby with some especially wrigley one's that'll take. This is a good rule of thumb. For how takes. It was a nickel. Barley python ridiculed python. Which is i think. The longest in the world and bali at the time was reputed to be the biggest snake in europe so pretty exciting needed a health checkup and she was six point six meters long and as a result they needed eight handling to move her ninety kilos and has the capacity for aggression unsurprisingly and these great photos of them moving the snake in big congo line. I guess and they've got her head in a tube is very funny is to keep the snake calm. You just put the head in a big old tube and that stops it. I also saw another one in chester zoo. There was another snake called j. f. and they instead of putting the head in shoob they covered their eyes with someone's hands so one of the in this case it was ten people. One of them covered that ice with the holland. Eight of them held the snake on the table and those a little hole in the bottom of the table of the tenth person was hiding under the table with the ultrasound. Shoved up the hull so you could see on the inside of the snake. Do they need to hold the snake down while they're doing it. Not just the carrying the most of the people that to stop it from wriggling away. Wow is a strong muscle strong. I would not want that gig holding my hand in front of the eyes of a snake that close with your hand right out next is madness would bite. You know. Particularly pythons not venomous. It's the person who's gonna get squeezed. Who's in trouble but it is. Maybe worth it because you are obviously the coolest people in zoo. Oh okay cool is a snake. What's the ultrasound guys. Oh i don't think any of us who's with you there. I reckon listeners where we have million people iraqi people listen to this episode possibly op. Twelve would have got that joke. Yeah right and if you got the ultrasound.

"About You know you partners you work with I would say that my partner for the olympics in ninety four and speedskating was the great. eric heiden. Yeah today's still the best olympic athlete in history of and people say well. How many do you want five gold medals in in the nineteen eighty lake placid olympics. Princeton marathon. no one ever competed in five events. Maybe two and that was it. But eric heiden was one of the greatest of all athletes and he was my partner and and and they wanna know. Well how do you know the nba. You're doing all these sports and how you doing olympic well if you're a reporter You know you you study film study tape of what's happened. You learn as a reporter and you do the basic says a reporter to story of what is happening and then you have the expert to tell you why it happened and so that's why that could work but that was one of the great thrills Doing an olympics which You know a lot of people may not realize it. We call them live. We call that. Those races live but a lot of time because of time. Different you do it on tape voice over later at night okay. It's not as glamorous as people that was no lau i ended there was no the internet. Had not quite you know. Come into play yet. So people were getting their information as quickly and you're having to report it you're having to see if you're having to to convey to your audience and i mean it is just amazing and and and learning the back story of a lot of these competitors and the the family situation. You talked about dan with losing his sister and and all of the falls. And i mean wow i mean what an amazing amazing You know just a triumph and just amazing but Anyway so moving along now we're gonna hit number two and you covered the some great rivalries throughout the eighties for the nba. And and the one rivalry. You know being a kid. A child of the eighties. Like i said. I was hooked on was sell. Tres celtics and lakers and this one in particular was game. Seven of the nineteen eighty-four nba finals. Go ahead aaron other does up anyway. No question larry bird demand. The celtics will live or die rule with the top here. Dennis johnson on the break. And here's korean. And korean with an incredible ways harris out to maxwell. It's a free onto great for go-to corinne. Foul against kareem ability by the hands of la has gone but angel basket is headquartered in the exchange. Hi where are they coming. Risk jumper on it to three point. One five zero two. Here's how to walk again. His johnson is against again. Wow tani's patrol. Wow factor writing. This is just blowing my mind. I mean i'm here in names out there. Magic karim worthy scott cons of cooper. dj age pairs bird. Mikhail my gosh and you at one point in that game game seven one point in that game you said you know this This young team led by the young guard. Magic johnson has quite a future ahead of him. I mean this is nine hundred. Eighty four what you know you gotta keep it pretty unemotional. But you get emotional. I mean what you say. Are you witnessing greatness right before your eyes. Yeah i mean you know you. I would say has been set of the bigger. The event of the more locally. You become you you get you. Don't get carried away with with these things. And he's a great players. But you know what's interesting and you as as you're talking. I'm thinking we never. We never promoted. Larry bird and magic. Johnson we talked about him but we did this in context with the style a beam that they were part so Which i think led to our great. Cbs overall success is a production. We did not do coming up next bird and magic because when you wing a game of which you're a five and five a bird may take one shot in the first quarter and magic may not be a factor at all until later in the game and all of a sudden. Well wait a second. You said burden magic. And that's what I think nbc then did the opposite after our contract was done in nineteen ninety and and it was the style play of the boston celtics with three great frontline players You know with with with bird. Kevin mchale in robert parish against the lakers which were a bunch of greyhounds. They were running up and down the court full court press. They had a six nine point guard of course in magic johnson and they gave the guy karim so how did the style of play and and most of those series and they were great. The whole package was great but this series in games were not that quote team would win by twenty five. Eighteen point fifteenpoints very close games in that entire series because one team would impose their will on the other and they would dominate. And that's what would happen. But they were great series and the players. Were think guys that made. It's happened but it was the style of play. What pat riley. Wanted to do with the lakers and casey jones and before that bill pitch with the celtics. Wow when when we come back from the break we are going to continue our conversation with the great dick stockton either Talking about some of the top broadcast moments over a fifty five year career and dick. It has been amazing so far. We just got through number two. Which was the and you literally. You said to me vince. Choose any game of the lakers celtics decade that i.

"And since Red rocks is gonna allow full capacity June 20 if June 20th they think is the date. Yeah, I would think that the playoffs would allow full capacity to you would think as they may be. I mean, red rocks. Obviously outside. I'm going back to the red rocks for the first time in over a year this weekend. I cannot wait. What's the weather supposed to be like? Cares? We can. I don't even care right now. Seventies. No rain. Who you going to say? Mountain Joy like an indie rock band. I don't know a lot of their stuff. But it was a band I recognized and I had the opportunity to go. So I said, Sign me up. I'm gonna go see Michael frantic, And they just It was supposed to be 2500 capacity, and they just announced over the weekend that they're gonna had 3000 more tickets to that show. So that will be 5500. So we're getting there. We're getting close. Yeah. Yeah. Not only that, that'll be fun. So again. Three or 37138585. We just had a a text. Actually, a couple of text come in for the 97. Oh, 397 with only 42% capacity ball Arena was absolutely rock. And last night he was loud, even on TV. It was I agree. That's what I'd like to see. It was hard for me to watch last year when they had nobody, you know. I do know. Because I called 16 Broncos games in the most curious Of Circumstance. I mean, your it was bad enough, you know, initially or then, after there were fans, a few fans like 5000 for the stadium, something family and friends of the players. And then after that, they decided no fans. It was it was. It was eerie enough calling a game from an empty stadium watching NFL players on the field and I do without a doubt think it affected. Play, especially for the home team late in games because there was no you know there's no emotion home home teams. Believe me when I say this rely many times, especially when games are close on the crowd right on that on that energy, you know you're tired, but you can fight through it. When that energy surges at least football on TV, they Pumped in that crowd noise. Yeah, I don't think I don't remember seeing them do that for basketball hockey last year Did I think they did it for basketball? I'm not sure about hockey. Not sure about hockey. But it was, you know, the even more bizarre thing honestly. Was sitting and empower fields when nobody was there when the games played, and whatever Pittsburgh and you're doing the late after what I've got to October in the time changed You're sitting in the dark. There's not a light on in the entire stadium. The field is dark. The only light in the stadium is in our booth, and you have to have enthusiasm. We're fired up, huh? No, It's just It was just very, very bizarre. So, um, glad to see that a few more fans. We're going. I hope you guys get to travel with the team. I think. I would think so, right? Yeah. Makes things more exciting. They don't get to make the decision. But I would think that that is that is in the cards. At least with the way with the way things were going 71944. Oh, now the Olympic Games alternate. Every two years winter summer Previously both were held the same year. I think I'd forgotten that also from the 719 Olympic so every four years, but there are winter games in 92 94. They changed the games to be every two years, huh? Okay? So, um, And then somebody had texted three or 39 when Eric Haydn Yeah. Eric Heiden was a speed skater. But I was talking about Dan Jansen. It was very kind of the same. Year, same Olympics. Look It was about about that time. Early nineties, maybe late eighties, right from 80 1980. Mm. But he won five individual gold medals and was set for Olympic records and one world world record at the 1980 Olympics. So there you go. Yeah, I mean, like he's now he's 60. He was six ft and £185. I didn't realize he was that small. I mean, I guess that's not really small. You know what you're trying to say small to me. But six ft. 1 80 e mean, I think of that. When you think of that as a professional athlete. I mean, You know baseball, maybe right? Yeah, not a football player Golf. Rockies lose last night seven. Nothing. I was sort of flipping back and forth until I until the ABS came on at four hits. Three years. And they've won two games on the road. So I didn't follow him at all. And I was gone. And, uh, I'm glad I didn't. Because they were even losing to my reds. So I don't know what they did They take two. They took two of three, right? Yeah. And and really Gave me. Didn't they play Cincinnati over this weekend? Yes. That's 6161 lead going into the eighth and lost find on finding ways to lose. That's never good. I got an email from Someone that I heart on Friday when I was in Ohio, obviously, and they said, Hey, we wanna celebrate all your hard work you've done for the company. We've got a suite at the Reds First Rockies game. We'd love for you to join, plus one and I'm like your kid. The one time I'm out of town and not in Colorado, and they're playing the reds and I can't make it But it was a nice gesture. It was nice. Yes, sense of the back and say, Hey, I'm back in town.

S. and Canada competing here Martin says shore the town's Olympic legacy helps but he says none of it would be possible without hundreds of millions of dollars in subsidies from New York state there is no way we could ever be able to handle this we probably would have been stuck with three ice arenas and maybe shut down to New York just announced an additional two hundred forty million dollars to upgrade lake placid's Olympic venues but this little mountain town pays a different kind of price for its success there are so many tourists that popular hiking trails nearby.

"USA. As I said at the beginning of known Dixon's my days back in Boston. WS MW television and. He was part of the Boston. Celtics telecasts when he was Yang as well and was also part of the broadcasting crew for the for the Boston Red Sox and he called Carlton Piss famous game winning in home. Run in game six of that series. You know when there are games of that stature. And they're a great moments. That are possible. How did you approach those moments in case they did happen even interesting? Great Question Ron actually I I did miss this update any of those things. I just went along as a reporter. Her and this was the situation. So in the sixth game of the nineteen seventy five world series six game at the bottom of the twelfth inning and Carlton Fisk happens to leading up so. I'm not thinking of anything that might happen. Only reporting what does happen. And so he takes the pitch and then he hits a home run. I react to the play as it happens but I never think of what could happen and get ahead of myself and I've always done it that way in somehow. It's worth we're there other moments like that. The ones that you remember that was along those same lines of stature also dramatic as well I you think so. Iran in nineteen ninety four working with the Great Eric Heiden won five gold medals in speedskating the nineteen eighty Olympics in Lake placid I was covering speed skating then and Dan Jansen was the top American speed skater for so many years but he came across a problems along the way he would fall Sister passed away of bright. Before the Calgary Olympics. He always had some bad luck. Misfortune never was able to win the medal that everyone everyone thought. He was born with and then finally in his last Olympics in the Viking ship in Hamar Norway he lost the five hundred meter race. The racing was favored to win. Because he flipped a little touchy ice and now his last race ever is a speed skater. Was it the one thousand meters of which he was not the sole favorite there. There were a lot of good candidates there and this was gonna be the moment of truth for dance. DANCE DANCE DANCE. It did then. He rose to the occasion. Not only we didn't win the race win the gold medal. He set the world record. I would say that next to call home run. This was a great moment that I was able to call and that was dramatic. Let me catching a touchdown pass. We go back to Johnson after In double overtime. NFL Divisional playoff against favorite. I think Lewis ramp is one and there are several others as well. Let me take you back you go to Syracuse University what is it about Syracuse University and their broadcast program that has turned out so many people like yourself and great announces. Well that's great. I didn't go to Syracuse for broadcasting. Because they didn't have broadcasting you how cool to be cases. It's not even built. When I was there I went to Syracuse Ron to study journalism I wanted to be a newspaper right and they had a daily newspaper called the daily Orange so I went to study journalism and I was writing for the school paper and I also tried out the campus station W. A. R. Which was honored in their hall of thing this year and then got into broadcasting but I wanted to be a writer sportswriter at first? Now what's happened. Is there have been so many who going to Syracuse. And they built a great facility. The newhouse school of Communications is the best of the land and it is fast. It's it's a state of the art studio and so if you WANNA be in broadcasting and it's been a long line of sports broadcasters like what Notre Dame football for so many years you would go to Syracuse and they have just gone on if you say hey I went to Syracuse University. I went to school. Okay you must be pretty good Morton Morton a little bit easier to get a job if you say that as well let me talk to you about the part well let me talk to you about the podcast that you're going to be doing because when I read about it I thought you know this is going going to be good. What's what's your approach to these podcasts? How are you going to? I assume it's going to be the journalistic approach. Yep No question.

The park while the park was close to you work for the all icy because the mall was supposed to be closed. Exactly. So she instructed Jack booted thugs who didn't want to do it to find you because you dared enter the mall when she had declared closed like the pet dictator that she was envisioning herself to be that day because Barack Obama had declared the mall now the mall's not closed now right now, I've been able to work throughout this shutdown just fine and the World War Two memorial is not barricaded shut and wired up, right? Everything's open. Everything's open. Now, why do you think that is Alex? Why was it blocked down then and you're being punished? You're you're having the government take punitive action against you for writing for making a living. You're writing of these these three wheeled bicycles with the seats in the back, and and you know, two or more people can sit back there. And and you've got thighs like Eric Heiden? And and you're right. These bicycles pedicabs the rickshaws in Washington DC where have long them all. Now. Why do you think they wanted to stop you then and they don't want to stop you? Now. Well, obviously, the park service and controlled by department of interior. He could tell that they just wanted to make as many people affected by it as they could to chime blame Republicans in the media. That's pretty much it. I've got to say,.
