Weekend Stakes Preview Presented by NYRA Bets

"The victory ride kicks off the stakes action here at Belmont Park tomorrow afternoon grade three early in the caught has just the feel of five phillies. GOING TO GO Six and a half furlongs as for the three year old's warning line favors one francs. Rock Cat Hall of Famer Bill Will Give Fellow Hall of Famer John Velazquez a leg up and this phillies done very little wrong on her career. She's three for seven. With four second-place finishes ran second in a couple of graded stakes, including the grade one spin away up at Saratoga last year last seen winning a third level allowance optional claimer. She uses stakes. Winner took the any limit kick off three year old season three starts back. and. Probably the only reason that this race isn't later in the card is that it's a five Horsfield and Franks? Rakhat is three to five on the morning line, and she may be the the loan speed in race, so she's going to be tough to beat at three to five, but that's a pretty short price, considering there some pretty good up and coming phillies near now I think number four center. I'll I'm going to give her another shot for. For Chad Brown and Joel Rosario Sheila Great Getting Her Maiden Win Gulfstream Park, when bet down to three to five at the end of March then came back in a tough allowance race at Churchill downs where she was really over bet, she was three to five that day against another very impressive maiden winner of this one for Steve Asmussen in casual casual ran a great race that day center I'll had all sorts of problems. She didn't break that well. She had trouble during the race, and she was just really never in at any point. I think it's a racy can kind of draw a line through? If she runs closer to the way she did and her debut. I think she's the one that could give Franks rock cat. The biggest problem Franks rocket will probably get the lead I would think Rosario would have center I'll sitting justin behind her and seeing if they can outgun into the line going six and a half furlongs. With you I'm going to take a shot with center. Rile planner. If? When I plan! Early took five tomorrow I will use both Franks rocket and center, but I'll tell you what I think. You can make a case also for up in smoke was undefeated and sprints. She's four five and a career. Lone blemish came when George Weaver tries to stretch her out Hollywood wildcat. Go at Gulfstream Park. She's raced exclusively of Gulfstream, in fact, steady diet once. Once a month February march April may June now. She gets a race in July. Here over Big Sandy, she wanted the game face overboard last time out for weaver Rod Ortiz Junior. Who wrote her in her debut against fellow Florida breads down at Gulfstream Park's in the climb back aboard for the first time. Since that day looks, you'll need a little help up front if Franks, rockets able to set an easy pace I. She's going to be very very tough. I think Senator I'll be the first one to come calling. Those are the two up in smoke. If you're looking to three deep, I don't think you need to center for Bobby and I race number three goes as the great three six and a half for a long victory ride go to the end of the card. Eleven race card like I said earlier, and the final four races make up an all stakes pick four, and it starts in reasoning with the greed three poker. Flat Mile on the turf for many years. This was the fourth of July staple. On the naira calendar here it is now as part of a super five stakes card. In, the poker though. On the widener, so they come out of that shoot. On the clubhouse turn we get a field of eight entered for the turf as a main track. Only it's all relevant with the way. The weather's been here. I would imagine you know there's supposed to be some rain. We're recording the show Friday afternoon supposed to be some rains rather day on Friday and into the evening. I can't imagine it enough to take this off the turf, so let's say it will be a field of eight.

Cam Gets Signed

"Well there was big news coming last night. Courtesy of our Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen former MVP cam. Newton is a free agent. No more instead Newton is heading to new. England to join forces with bill, Belichick and follow in the footsteps of another MVP Tom Brady. And Cam Newton's cryptic fashion. He had this to say the instagram. I'm excited because I know what right now all praise to God dropping contact tomorrow. I hope you're ready Hashtag. Let's go pat. And so now we know, and we'll start with Adam Schefter, and our health hall of Famer. Steve Young One one. Just tell us how we got here. How did this deal get done? Listen I think it took Cam Newton a little bit of time to recognize that there was not a thirty plus million dollar a year job on the market when you released two weeks into the free agent signing period not only that there's not an obvious starting job that's out there, and so the longer this went on, and the less he heard from teams, and there really was nobody that he heard from the more he recognized that he had to find the right spot. And if you're going to find the right spot, there's nothing wrong with taking new. England Riga tour with Bill Belichick and Josh mcdaniels, and the new quarterbacks coach Jed fish in an offense. That obviously is going. Going to be trying to replace Tom Brady where you're competing with the guy like Jarret, Stidham hasn't proven that he can play yet in the NFL and so cam. Newton goes to New England on a one year deal where he gets to reestablishes value show that he's healthy, and over the shoulder and foot injuries that he has been dealing with the last two years, and this is the the place that he now tries to relaunch his NFL career at the age of thirty one, which should be most quarterbacks, the prime of their career, no question and Adam. How likely is it that this is in effect? A one year auditioned for Cam to be with the Patriots beyond this season. Wendy what I would say is this if Cam Newton plays well, the Patriots obviously would be interested in resigning him, and if not, they have the ability to move on from him. It depends on how the year goes. It's difficult to forecast that right now. All we know is that the Patriots signed a former. Most Valuable Player who won that award in two thousand fifteen, who has tremendous ability who goes into this offense, and now we'll have to learn it, which is not going to be an easy task in a shortened off season for put as the ability to be dominant quarterback. If he can pick up that system if he plays that way, you would think that no one would not let him out. Out, the door, but again there's a whole year. They WANNA see Newton. They WANNA see them. They want to see a year goes to. It's truly to say that just yet well. Yeah, I mean a lot can happen in a year. We've all we've all seen that in Steve. How do you like the fit between cam? Newton and what he brings on the field and the New England patriots. When healthy. Rusted Cam Newton mean it's like. Manna from heaven right I mean in many ways I, think Josh, mcdaniel and Bill Belichick sitting around a lot of times. Saying. Could you imagine what we could do with this guy or that? Guys? They play these players. Run the League, and they see them in places where I'm sure they say because they're supreme of conference. Not Hubris just supreme confidence that if we could get a hold of him what we could do with him, and we can really expend on what you're seeing around the league. What we can do is special, and so I'm sure they're saying this about. If Cam comes in his foot is okay. Because we know the arm is all right, we should. We saw that early last year before. So. We know that he's healthy. If his what is good and he can move, you've got. Hungry. Sophisticated and the type caliber Blair in New England, where you have bill and Josh saying you can't imagine what we're GonNa, do with this kid and so I think that's I. think that's the conversation. That's happening right now. New England, Steve. Look it's anybody's guess at this point, but you. You have an opinion very qualified one. What do you believe the likelihood? Is that Cam Newton? Is the Patriots Starting Quarterback Week One? Again if healthy, if he can move around, I can't imagine them with his talent level, and what they think they can do them again. It becomes a you know it's a proof point for what they're out to show their out to show that we can do special things with special players, and so it's it becomes A. A right of passage to be in New England, and that we can take somebody, and we can show you amazing things that can be done and they've done that with flair after play after player so Cam Newton and healthy can move around. I. It's GonNa be, too. It's like a gravitational force when it's to special to be able to show what they can do with a great Cam Newton. Yeah,

Can You Train Yourself to Become Ambidexterous?

Can You Train Yourself to Become Ambidexterous?

"The. World is made up of about ninety percent of right handed people and ten percents, left-handed people folks who are truly ambidextrous, those who use their right and left hand equally well make up a negligible sliver of the population, but is ambidextrous, inherited or learned, and if learned, can it be learned as an adult? We spoke of email with Dr Sebastian. Auckland Berg a professor of psychology at Ruhr University and BOCOM Germany. He said a little bit of both. And this is determined by about twenty five percent, genetic factors and seventy five percent, non genetic factors like environmental influences. It clearly runs families, so it is somewhat inherited, but learning might also affect it I think amdex steady for a specific task. like hitting a tennis ball with the racket is possible, but full embiid extremity for all tasks is unlikely. Handedness being the skill in comfort, a person feels using one hand, or the other is considered a complex genetic trait, and since genes are involved hand, preference develops before a person's even born, but like other complex traits handedness including ambiguity extremity doesn't have a simple pattern of inheritance. Yes there is a greater chance. The children of left-handed parents will also be lefthanded than righties, but remember the chance of being a lefty is just ten percent overall, so most children have lefties are still right handed. An identical twins are more likely than non identical twins to both be either right or left handed, but many of both types do have opposite hand preferences, and that's before we even talk about whether a child's handedness is allowed to develop naturally or whether parents and teachers interfere. Hand dominance typically develops around age three and fully developed by age four to five, but it can be influenced by insisting a child uses their other hand, or by happenstance for example when he was four years old, former major league baseball pitcher Billy Wagner broke his right elbow and spent the summer in a cast. In his memoir Wachner victory recalls being a natural righty at the time and already mad for baseball, but for the next six weeks he threw only left-handed when the cast came off, he was in for a surprise when he tried throwing with his right, the ball went nowhere had lost not a strength of coordination for throwing with his right arm and gained it in his left. Wagner wrote. I was a natural righty then and still am I do everything right handed eat told tools right start lawnmower everything except pitch. Wagner wouldn't be considered ambidextrous though he's certainly managed to have an incredibly successful career working with his non dominant hand. Baseball is full of players who switch hit meaning. They hit equally well from either the left or right side, and are comfortable, facing left or right handed pitchers, some like hall of Famers, Eddie Murray Mickey Mantle and Chipper Jones were successful, but they like. Wagner weren't truly ambidextrous. Which is something? That's very difficult to do, but why the? Lindburg said headedness is something that is generated in the brain, not the hands as such. The half the brain contra lateral to the hand is better in controlling fine motor movements for example, the left brain hemisphere in right handers. The strength of this preference varies between individuals. Some people have a very strong preference for one hand, and resulting from that greater issue in using the other for specific tasks, so it's the brain that sets the barrier. But if the brains, that's the barrier. The brain can also remove it. Take the case of Billy McLaughlin. McLaughlin is an award winning guitarist known for a unique style of play, placing both hands on the Fredbord, Originally predominantly a right handed guitar player, but in the late nineteen nineties despite having a record at number seven on the billboard. He was struggling with control problems. He was missing notes when he played an experienced muscle spasms to the point that he was unable to perform. Finally in two thousand one McLaughlin was diagnosed with focal Dystonia, a movement disorder, causing muscles to contract involuntarily, though advised to find another career McLaughlin opted to teach himself to play left handed and he succeeded. So this begs the question. Can we teach ourselves to become ambidextrous as adults? A two thousand seven study found that as we age, we actually become more ambidextrous without even trying in part because the hands that we use more loses. Its dominance of the study was small. It included sixty participants all strongly right handed according to the Edinburgh handedness inventory, the participants completed various computerized dexterity tests, which included line tracing and aiming task and tapping the youngest group average age, twenty five years performed all the skills proficiently using their right hand, the Middle Age participants average age fifty years performed well using either hand on the gaming task while the two oldest groups average ages, seventy and eighty years performed just as well using either hand on all tasks except one. However overall performance appeared to decline with increasing age especially for the participants dominant hand, leading researchers to believe that quote, we become more ambidextrous as we get older because dominant hand loses its superior dexterity, and becomes more like are weaker hand. Some people have wondered whether attempting to become ambidextrous could strengthen the brain and potentially slow or fight the effects of aging or dementia Allen Berg said that's a myth, while it is true in general that brain training is a good idea when aging research has shown that what at strengthened is what is trained, so if I trained to write with my non dominant hand, this would affect the motor brain areas of the contra lateral half the brain, but not the areas involved in memory. Thus a specific memory training would make more sense in aging and dementia.

Spike Lee: a new black wave of cinema

"We've spent past two weeks in a collective state of horror and anger over George Floyd's killing at the hands of Minneapolis police, officer Dirk, Shaaban, just one thousand unjustly killed by police. It's hard to look at what happened. Floyd, and not think of Radio Raheem Bill. Nuns character from do the right thing. Or countries fucked up needs to change. No American filmmaker has had the foresight or insight about that need for change quite like spike has. Some directors interpret the past some capture the present spike does both and he sees the future. Spent some time in the past few weeks. Returning to some spikes movies in anticipation of his new film to five bloods, it's a staggering body of work as wide as it as deep as warm and inviting as provocative and laden with traps ever. Spike isn't the totality of the black filmmaking experience and I don't want to suggest that, but for forty years he's told stories about that experience that have been seen more widely and discussed more feverishly than anyone and they still haven't been seen enough. Of the conversations you've been having with loved ones this month about the problems that people are forced to look at more closely police brutality, systemic racism locally sanctioned violence gentrification, tribal loyalty, the failures of government, personal sacrifice versus public good hiring practices, power, art and money spike was ahead of most Americans for decades on these issues, but while the stories he tells are frequently polemical. His movies are quite nuanced. They rarely tell you exactly what to think. Instead foisting contradictions and crises, interviewers, laps and making them decide. He crafts extraordinary dilemma movies inspired by the new Orrin Westerns and social dramas that he studied at Nyu and even though he doesn't force a conclusion is movies are frequently an intelligence test over the years, critics and audiences have repeatedly shown their ass immediately upon exiting a spike movie. For person like me seeing his work at a young age me up, helped me see beyond my keyhole-size view of the world, but it's not like spike wasn't relatable. He was the Avatar of new. York Knicks FANDOM! He was a regular presence on TV and Jordan commercials. He was directing music videos and frequently according controversy in the movie world he consistently challenged fans and detractors to reexamine their beliefs, and he always destabilized our comfort at sixty three. He is still very much a vital filmmaker. Twenty eight teams Black Klansman was among his most honored films and marked his First Competitive Oscar win for best adapted screenplay. Spike is a hall of Famer on this show and his work accounts for some of my favorite movies ever made. This episode is dedicated to those movies and will include conversations with a couple of his key collaborators as well as a part of a conversation that was more than I had on the watchable last summer. About Lee's nineteen eighty-nine masterpiece. Do the right thing. That movie redefines the term remarkable. In it! You can see and hear the pain and conflict. We're talking about right now. Watch it again. If you haven't really later in the show, we'll have a conversation with jazz. Musician and film composer Terence Blanchard a longtime contributor of spikes. They've teamed up on fifteen films including two five bloods, and he is truly one of the great writers of music for movies. I also wanted to share a conversation I had with the film editor Barry Alexander Brown in February. Two Thousand Nineteen, after he received an Oscar nomination for his work on Black Klansman they've been together since spikes first movie. She's gotTa, have it? Like so many great filmmakers spike works with the same crew over and over again, not just Aronson Berry, but production designer when Thomas Costume. Designer Ruth Carter casting director Robby Reed, and that incredible troop you've seen over and over again in his movies Denzel Washington, of course, Johnsboro on Davis Samuel Jackson Roger One of Your Smith Arthur Nas. Kerala Delroy Lindo is Ahah whitlock junior Alleluia Debbie Masar Ruby Dee, the list goes on. Later this week will be back with a review of spikes, the five bloods, which will be available to watch on Netflix on Friday, it's the story of four black Vietnam veterans who return to the jungle for some unsettled business, its reunion of sorts of some of those actors, and for it's a kind of mission statement about missions. Lastly. We'd like to top five on this show. Spike is made more than thirty feature length films, many of which are indisputable classics to cover every style and format under the Sun. Drama Comedy Crime Films Romances Documentary Sports Movies farce satire musical. He's really done at all. I would recommend virtually every movie he's ever made, but before I share my five year a few places, you can watch his movies just in case you're trying to bone up on some of the ones you've missed. Overlook along the way.

I truly you know They have another fifteen years. The doctors did so you know. I'm just banking on that. But you know I feel good real good. What are you doing these days? Well I'm hanging out with my wife. We try to do as much as we can together with this crazy virus going around you know We spend a lot of time together before it was announced. I wasn't spring training with the twins Working with somebody young flares. Right your story which you tell here so eloquently in your New Book. One tough out There are a lot of triumphs as you'd expect a lot of remarkable achievements as many of us are aware and there's a lot of hardship to not only your health issues last few years but the death of your daughter when she was seventeen from leukemia. Your upbringing your born in Panorama The raise mostly in New York. What was it like writing about these things telling these stories many of which You know we're so painful experience of course or I think the most painful part was About Michelle you know not so much about my upbringing and what I went through but about you know Michelle you know. She's just young lady getting ready to go to nursing. School and I mentioned was Diagnosed with leukemia. But what surprised me about or was that she never cried day. She just said that in order to doctors are GonNa Clean me up and I'll be back out there again. You know turn to help save someone's life so I I couldn't believe I couldn't believe her reaction and the way she felt. Why well you don't you think that a seventeen year old would start saying you know why I mean you know I don't WanNa die and start crying and things like that but she she just you know she was strong. She said you know the doctors told her you know what she hadn't they're gonNA clean her up and make a Watergate and that's all she Really believed that the time speaking with Rod Karoo his new book a memoir is one tough out fighting off. Life's curve curve balls now I think most people would agree. There can't be anything Were difficult more traumatic than losing a child. How did you? How did you deal with the trauma at the time? But you know I have faith you know and She was a great kid. I mean everyone loved her and then when the big man upstairs decided that it was her time you know I have so much faith in him that you know I never questioned him or ask why. Michelle you know was just their time. You know one you know we all have our time. Scheduled from the dame were born so You know I just went on and did what she asked me to do to stay involved in you know. Try and help kids. And I've had a golf tournament for the last twenty five years that It's all about pediatric cancer cell. And it's doing real real good things for for a lot of kids ride. There's a lot of pain here and it's not easy talking about things that are painful. So why was it so important for you to write this book? Well you know what God has given me a gift to to see a baseball the baseball and so I felt that you know Put The book out. I'm doing God's work I'm trying to save lives and letting people be aware heart disease and it's the number one killer in this country and I want people to take care of themselves. Take care of their bodies and take care of that little ticker that he gives us Insider body lip. So hopefully you know we'll get some good results from it. Would you look back at your career baseball and all the things All things you did. I one thing that's vivid for me as I said I'm fifty years old so I was eight years old. Nineteen seventy eight all star game and I remember it. I don't remember where it was played. The only thing I remember I remember. I was such a big baseball fan. The All Star game back then especially with such a big deal and that was the year after you'd hit three eighty eight and There were a lot of people hopeful that you'd become the first since Williams to hit four hundred and I remember that game. What was it two triples and two singles in the All Star game? You know it's funny. I two triples and I'm the second one I was sliding into third base of Pete Rose Screen third base and he started yelling. You know. That's that's that's a record. No one has ever done that before he would know he would tell you know so. I got up but he says you know. Congratulations no one has ever done. What yesterday so Pete knows about in baseball? Allow us don't know you know but It was a great day for me. Seventy seven was a big year for you the year before that you know in in the middle of What I guess I would call your heyday. You're the height of your powers No WanNa get three eighty eight since Ted Williams In late fifties. No-one hit four hundred since Williams in nineteen forty one. What was it like being locked in like that that year? You know it was a very uncanny here for me. It just seems that everything I hit found a whole. And what's crazy is that. When I was at the plate I would see the the infielders middle infielders shift a little bit and then I hit the ball. Maybe you know two feet from where they were claim that it would have been an out but it went through for basis so It was just crazy. The baseball seem like it was a a beach ball. Then it seemed like just floating up there and say hit me. Hit Me hit me. It'd be where he wants you. You know so Great great season for me. Now I know you know these numbers ride but I'm going to read them for the benefit of our listeners. You want your I batting title in Sixty Nine when you were twenty three three thirty two then you won the batting title seventy two three eighteen year career. Three Twenty eight hitter in an era when there was a lot of diminished offensive production. It was really a pitcher's era. You won batting titles hitting three thirty two three eighteen three fifty three sixty four three fifty nine three eighty eight and three thirty three. You're an all star eighteen seasons in a row I don't know what the question is right and they just it just still. I still marvel at at what you achieved one of the things when I think about your career is the remarkable bat control And what you could do with both With a hand around the barrel of the Bat. Why can't anyone bunt anymore rod? They really don't try you know and it's so frustrating to To See guys that have speed that could get on base easily Especially with the shift at saw that they're doing today and they don't even attempt. Everyone wants a home because they figure or they saw that or think that that's where they're gonNa make make the big bucks but you know to me. I I am. I frustrated with the game today because of that and we were on it and spring training every single day and then when the game starts they forget about it. All they think about is let me see. How far can it? The next one loss to write about You Difficult Childhood and your father In this book as I said You were born in Panama. Nineteen forty five But you raise mostly New York and you went to George. Washington High School in Washington Heights. Same High School that produced Manny Ramirez. Two pretty good ball players. How would you describe your childhood It was tough because I was a very sick kid you know. I had rheumatic fever when I was growing up and I I almost died So my mom treated me With kid gloves you know. My Dad thought that I should be more of a man you know. And so we didn't have a good relationship and You know he drank a lot and I suffer the consequences. My and I suffer the consequences when he came home. But one thing that I had that kept me safe was baseball and my mom. Encourage me to play. You know she says you know keep keep going keep playing in good things are GonNa happen and I told her I said mom all I WANNA do is play front of fifty thousand people because listening to the radio. I couldn't believe that there were that many people in the stands Until I found out you know differently but baseball save me. You know I almost killed my dad When he came home one night he was really drunk and I was about twelve years old and he passed out on the bedroom. I said here's my checks and then my mom came running and she says don't forget baseball and I stopped. I was just tired of abuse. And my mom being abused Rod. What what do you remember? I mean you growing up in New York. It's it's the fifty s and you've got Willie mays playing for the giants at the Polo grounds. Just a couple of miles from where you're grown up you got mickey mantle in the Bronx again just over the river You've got all those great players. The dodgers out there. What do you remember about Being a fan as a kid of New York baseball or you know it's crazy. I had never gone into Yankee Stadium. Never went into the Polo grounds and I played right outside of Anki stays stadium on Kuhn's field right there by the bridge. Yeah right right at bridge hit some balls topic preach but I used to here to the roar of the crowd I used to say to myself. You know maybe one day I'll be playing and and disgrace and and the House that Ruth built and as a kid you know you just you dream you wander and I was fortunate enough to To realize my dream. When did you know that you had not an ordinary but an extraordinary talent for the game? Well you know every year players would ask you know what they're gonNa do that set goals and you know sometimes those gold member realized and all I ask for was God to give me good health. I was GonNa do good things for them. And that's that's all I ever thought about. I was not playing for myself. I was playing for the body and he's took me to a great a great career. I thanked him every day. And I still do for speaking with Rod Crew. The baseball great or the greatest ever play the game second baseman first baseman eighteen time. I've got a right eighteen. Isn't it right eighteen? Time All star all star in every season in which he played in the majors except his final season nineteen eighty five split between his career. The Minnesota twins and at the time California Angels Three Thousand Fifty Three Hits at three twenty eight career batting average rookie of the year. Mvp of the American League You achieve all these great things in baseball We'll see what gives the game. Its spiritual elements beyond just the physical where people think about baseball away They think is home. They think of it as comfort. They think that it saved your life. I in what is special about baseball. Or that's what I thought it saved my life I don't know it's just you know growing up and playing stickball and thinking about Willie mays and Jackie and Roy intead and all those great players and you know hoping that one day you can meet them or you know play with them so I mean it kept me fixed on the game.

America then free agent frenzy of the National Football League but we all have to take everything in moderation and that the old saying you know in moderation so so many of us are glued to the television watching the news and waiting for word from the government and what's going on with the doctors and so many cities are being shut down and so many people are being sent home so many people are worried about do I have enough food to the house to take care of my kids my kids are coming home from school who's going to watch it there's so much angst going on the quite honestly I'm more fired up tonight than I was last night because here's what I'm gonna do I'm gonna give you permission right now to turn your mind off from everything going on in the world it give yourself a little bit of a break you deserve in America you deserve the sports fans of America deserve to have a little bit of a break just to just rest your mind on the serious matters that were all facing all of us together I'm just like you I had to go out and buy enough food then if we have to stay in our house for two weeks then I'll be able to feed my family either scramble to get all my family members home from wherever they were make sure they're staying put I'm calling my mom every day making sure that she's okay I'm facing the same things that you wore we all we're all in this together but for these next four hours I'm gonna do my best to take your mind off of things for just a little bit C. get a mental breather she get a little bit of a mental break so when tomorrow comes in there's new challenges for you you'll have a little bit of a respite and wall telling the Wall tackles challenges together you me and everybody else our neighbors rocking to come together raucous support each other the raw gonna try our darnedest to get through this is one country one nation under god so that's what we're doing tonight so I'm giving you permission do not feel guilty about talking about Tom Brady and the patriots do not feel bad because you're paying attention to what's going on with Philip rivers going to the colts Janus Winston being out on the street in Tampa Bay cam Newton being out in the street after teddy Bridgewater is gonna go take that job in in Carolina it's okay for us to talk about this stuff you need a little bit of a break now and then that's we're trying to do for the next four hours here on CBS sports radio so let's open up those fall mites patriot fans it's okay for you to be upset about Tom Brady Leman it's okay for you to say Tom thank you so much for giving us six Super Bowl rings Tom it's okay could you leave us or it's okay for you to say talk one of the world would you leave us after we've got all the success together why would you go on put on a Tampa Bay buccaneer Jersey one we've had so much success together it seems like you're walking out on us it's okay for you to say Hey listen I think craft and I think the head coach mess this thing up and why in the world with Gillette Tom Brady walk if you're if you're buccaneer fan did you root for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers you've got to be like a little kid on Christmas morning want to stand up and scream and run out and buy your TB twelve Jersey in the puter Peiffer Jersey that's okay yeah I'm giving you permission to get excited about Tom Brady you were not not being disrespectful of everything else the country's doing you're doing what we're supposed to do is continue to live our lives the best we can number feet appear on the program is simple and toll free eight five five two one two four two two seven eight five five two one two four two two seven how to put it to you this way I think that Tom Brady leaving the New England Patriots is a travesty it's a tragedy Tom Brady should have gone down in the history of Boston on the same on the same platitudes is the splendid splinter Ted Williams he should have gone out on the same stage as yes as bill Russell there's all those all time greats to play their entire career in Boston and the fact that he's leaving to go to Tampa Bay squabbling over whatever reason chased him out of the place he's called home for twenty years to me it's pretty sad we're all we're gonna Y. goodness and you're gonna see a lot of people writing this on a lot of people talking about his his hero was was Joe Montana Hey Joe Montana got run out of San Francisco at the end of his hall of fame career and ended up finishing is his season his last two years we love the Kansas city chiefs to the playoffs this has nothing to do with what Joe Montana faced at the end of his career in fact does very little to do with Tom Brady's hero finding a new area code in a zip code at the end of his career this has more to do with eagles and I'll be honest I think they're serious mismanagement and we're really going to see whether Robert Kraft is the greatest owner of history of sports it bill Belichick is the genius that we've all anointed him to be and I'll explain why here in just a second but again let me give you that toll free number eight five five two one two four two two seven eight five five two one two four.

You're getting a lot of congratulations yesterday. I think people can seize profiles on social media but no. It's a great a day great day for Derek. Great Day for everyone looks like him. Yeah not not exactly I mean it could have been more perfect We are going to be joining Marnie seconds. He's late with his train. So just bear with us for it could have been more perfect. He could've been unanimous. Like this is the first thing that go wrong in the season but also I don't like dirty use. A Hall of Famer is the most percentage votes ever a position player. That's cool most ever. That's not unanimous like I don't want to give this a miserable crabby. Fuck whoever is the credit of making Derek jeters hall of fame name Induction Field Down like I get. It would have been much better if it's if it was unanimous but I hate that like the whole thing is damper. Now there should be a celebration of career. Sure and I get that. It sucks but I don't WanNa give this miserable piece of shit the satisfaction to think like. He's ruining well. I'M GONNA is. I want him to go to jail for the rest of his life. I wanted to be shamed Shane publicly. I want him to have to explain it in some sort of public peace after college. Like I'm not giving a guy a click. I want him to say it like publicly on like livestream somewhere or whatever like I don't WanNa give one click of whatever companies associated with I want him to actually have to explain. Why Derek Jeter isn't a hall of Famer in his mind and I can't honestly think of what he's GonNa like unless he says and this doesn't make it fair but this is what I could see him saying? Like I knew he was going to be hall of fame voter but everyone what else I gave her an else my vote. But that's wrong. But that's just the wrong way where he's going to say I think he's good enough to be unanimous that's terrible. That's not the way to think the hall of Fame Voting System. The is Fox. First of all there shouldn't be a cap to how many people you could put in because and they're also should be. It should be shorter than ten years. They are on the ballot. Those are my my two. I like now joined by Martin James Martin. What's going on dirt you? I mean he says that we shouldn't give the guy I'm saying acknowledged uh-huh I'm saying that right now. It Sucks Derek. JETER's like hall of fame. Induction is getting dampened by the fact that it wasn't unanimous almost feels like said we're trivia celebration that he's in Eh great career and I think that being like Oh shucks he was unanimous is giving this guy the satisfaction he wanted. It is so I have. I still want the people might take but I think all of a sudden is Mike just went out. What are you doing target? Hello Yeah I was GonNa did you purposely just make. It might not work because it's just obviously we knew he was getting in correct. I was but we were just waiting. C One hundred percent. You don't like Kinda WanNa be that guy to have that power I have asshole. He's a dickhead sick to be that one guy. That'd be how everyone's talking about to be a unanimous do it with like another derrick. Jeeter this is I think dirges should definitely been one hundred. People are so fucking dumb and that like that. Ah He wasn't like he's overrated bobble. I don't even know if the trolling he literally flavors trolling. I think there's actually other people out there who I know that's crazy. They really obsessed with his defensive runs. Saved number like for his career. Watch the trump throw people literally jumped on literally. Oh did Derrick jeeter. It got to the point because we're from New York. There's no chance everyone everyone does that. I mean think about all the people around baseball that were the number to form and stuff it got to the point. Where maybe there was a point maybe where people overrated Derrick jeeter a little bit but the pendulum is now swung back to the fact that I think he's now underrated like so many people are saying? So what are yours overrated. I think he's now under. Highest percentage vote by Brezler Industry and the hall of fame underrated player. I like that. Yeah I generally like the way people are are. Here's the thing it's like two separate arguments should derrick jeeter hall of Famer and then should Derek jeter view unanimous hall of fame. There are people that are going to say he's a hall of Famer but it shouldn't be unanimous but that just doesn't make fucking sense. It's like you just because pass. Voters did the wrong thing by leaving out. Thank Ken Griffey and Tom Seaver and Babe Ruth etc look America Rights. It's wrongs women didn't have the right to vote at one point. I guess what's happening women. They got they got the right to vote. We vote rights wrong. I look at you like what's happening. We look we you know we we. We had a bad past the hall of fame voters last year. It got straightened out with Marrano. We continue on that good path. This guy probably want women to vote the Derrick jeeter. I liked the accusees. Yeah now there is. The school thought that this could solidify that. Mary is going to be the only unanimous famer ever it. Should that only like good thing. That comes out if that happens. That's awesome because he was the best in my opinion of anyone who plays a certain position. He's the most dominant in sports history. Story Yeah I mean if ten griffey junior didn't get it right. I don't think anyone position player. She got them right. And but that's not but like no doubt their word the Sincino but what about trout. Honestly like I think someone like someone like he didn't win winning player so I I don't think will be unanimous unanimous now that if junior was unanimous yes sure that opens the door fog intro but now it's like I think they're just kind of trying to solidify Marianna which that could be if that's maybe this. This guy's L- Reasoning is like he's just a Marian Guy. There's no way Marrano guy to me Your Hall of Famer or you're not the whole thing like oh we shouldn't be unanimous. I missed you ask one hundred people is Derek. Jeter Hall of Famer. They should all say yes. I'm all be unanimous hall of Famer. Maybe they're not all going to say yes but at one hundred people think he's a hall of fame it's facto. He should be handed about. WHO's a hall of Famer on this list right here? Well obviously der Cheater. Well then you have to say that the balance because we're all obviously obviously is in the hall of fame but yeah he's handing a ballot here Adam Dunn's on this list Brad pennies analyst. Someone voted for Brad Penny so get any votes. I don't know imagine who needs to shut up the kid good career he did curt schilling need to shut up Europe. Rick he's a prick. We can't have that guy. Guide the hall shut up getting a guy about how you didn't get in Europe wreck if you shut the fuck up you'll be in the hall. Yes Derek jeter. Hasn't said there's nothing we know what they're doing because Kurt John. You're a prick shop. I don't care about you. Not being all fifty states only got so much same GIAMBI. He'll get six votes. Yeah you got the the job I think. I'll fons more deserving GIAMBI for sure yeah job was involved with the steroids clean funds with like. I didn't realize how many home runs all. Oh father hidden history is like four thirteen. The thing about Geeder too. It's like people are like maybe we had younger guys coming up like to be a better a shortstop and him and everything then. Why do we trade for shortstop when he left right? That was a Lotta People's point like he probably held out. We had definitely better prospects. Come up shortstops when he was there. We'll fuck it. Obviously not what it used. Yeah this is a stupid argument. Also I love this status from Katie Sharp. She said how this is a long longlist. The people who have done this three thousand two hundred fifty homers three hundred fifty stolen bases thirteen hundred. RBI career named the people on that list. Derek jeter. It's only guy only ever do that. That guy's not at all. I mean it. Is You know you could say arbitrary cut offs or whatever but those are legit statistics and numbers. There's only five people baseball more. Hit SNUKA only five this stupid people fucking insane I will shout out.

"All right guys. Welcome back and get back to talking Jimmy Johnson the pro football hall of fame and everything else right here on the OCHO. It's going to be some makes you think about Joe Avezzano norv Turner. You know. Dave wants dead. All you know all those guys you know. There's not an astrologer Roger Happening I you know I do Wanna get your thoughts on. I tweeted this and I. I texted it to you as well. It is is I. I can't think I'm not trying to just be harsh. I mean you know that's sometimes as part of the Gig what I really truly believe. It's embarrassing for the Dallas Cowboys. That Jimmy is now a pro football hall of Famer and that it actually took this. You know a specific centennial annual class for him to get in and that he's not in the ring of honor that's it's it's a shame it really truly is yeah it is And and you know I don't know we don't know you know the behind the scenes of of all that but it certainly does you know put Put their among you know on the front of the The world stage just to you know. How do you explain this right? Yeah and the guys in the hall all of fame because of what he did in your organization. Yeah he's not what dozens yeah. Yeah no exactly You know so yeah I mean I I you know I agree with you and you know it's also you know kind of you know how like we always talk about things you can't plan you know the the same very same week that Jason Garrett Leave the organization. Mike McCarthy joins the organization and then Jimmy Johnson gets inducted into the pro football hall of fame. I mean you just can't plan that I mean and you know so here is McCarthy now you know he's now he's got you know quite a high standard To you know to shoot after and then you know I I wish him the all the success and hope he surpasses that but you you know. That's pretty high standard now. Yeah I WANNA get your. We've got a criminal out into the end here but to finish the tai-bo on the Jimmy Jerry. Thing it you're right like there could be. I mean because you know there's an infinite amount of possibilities or I guess it's technically fine but I mean there is potentially a reasonable or at least somewhat understandable reason. Why Jimmy Johnson's not during a fire like that possibility does exist? But you said it I mean you. CanNot it really explain this in all this does is really make Jerry. Jones look poorly. I don't think you know I think that you look at it. I don't believe leaving Karma that's not like you know our faith or anything but I do think it's at the very least interesting that you know so you know because people say Jerry's there is only in the hall of fame because he stood on. Jimmy shows whatever but. I think it's funny that you know denied that Jerry was celebrated with cowboys fans at Agency stadium. Liam for going on you know when they give them their hall of fame ring. That night was the night. They lost to the eagles in two thousand seventeen. That's literally the worst loss ever in a ged stadium sister. You know what I mean. That's just a really funny coincidence. And you know you look at Gil Brandt who also took way too long to get him to honor and he just barely got in there before before he got into the hall of fame and at the time the writing was on the wall that he was going into the hall but Gil Brandt went in the night. They beat the saints in two thousand eighteen. You you know what I mean this like incredible night everyone will remember forever or as Jerry went on this one that everyone wants to forget and it just I think those are funny things that automatically you know make paint Jerry in a poor light or whatever he did release a statement And he said were so happy that the hall of fame has recognized. Jimmy Johnson. Awesome for what he is. That's the first sentence and it's just like well. Then how have you not you know. It's a really unsettling thing and I think that like like throwing a boomerang. Yeah it's a really a hypocrite. I don't know what word to use but it it looks really badly on the cowboys organization. That that it actually happened. I mean great for Jimmy Johnson. But you know you know. Somebody tweeted at us on the block on the boys camp. It said that Jerry should inductive an I vehemently disagree superior that the moment should belong to Jimmy and Jimmy alone because he did he has not gotten that do in cowboys fans. He should bathe in it all in his own. If he wants have his players you know like we talked triplets. Think that would be cool but this you know. It's a really really really bad season for Jerry. Jones the owner of the cowboys. And this is kind of the. You know the closing of that circle so to speak. Yeah no I totally agree and and the yeah. Yeah I mean I I think that You Know Jerry Has Been Very very kind of to due to Jimmy in terms of you know whatever success cowboys have had in terms of including hammer recognizing them for that in fact you know may have even gone out of his way to try tried to leave him out of it but You know this it's here is something he cannot ignore it. I mean it It's very vivid. Part of You know with the cowboys success is is due to and And Yeah I think it's Jimmy's opportunity. I'm you know Going there and enjoy the moment with themselves by you know himself on on a standalone basis as a as a dynamic coach that You know did some some pioneering things to change the game and I do believe that firmly We'll go in order of importance here with regards to the new cowboys. Head coach conference title Games. You mentioned it briefly. But you haven't been on the pod sense. What are your thoughts thoughts on Mike McCarthy just to get them out into the ether? I liked him You know I think you know I have been sorry to cut you off but I meant to add things you cannot plan. They comment you go. I mean you couldn't plan first of all that the hall of fame announced these you know what I mean like the bill cower and Jimmy Me Johnson thing like they're never announced you know what I mean divisional weaken. This is like the the one time that ever happened in into your point. It was the week that the cowboys moved on from guaranteed McCarthy earthy and that had happened at halftime of the cowboys new coaches old team punching their ticket to the NFC championship game. Sorry the airport. Yeah no I mean that's very Very pinpoint and I appreciate that but no I I like the I like the higher of Mike McCarthy I liked what He's talked about that he's done in the off season I think that You know and I'm hoping hoping although we you know we really haven't seen the exact nature of what latitude and authority and level of decision. Making he is is going to have. But I'm assuming that it's going to be you know Enough that made him accept the job or helped him accept the job I certainly don't see him as a guest person to just come in here and you know. Take everything that the The Front Office wants him to say and do and do it. you know so. I'm I'm happy that we've got somebody that you know. I consider to be a high pedigree. I think He will make some changes is You know they may not take cowboys to the Super Bowl in year. One but I certainly think that the There will be a lot of Improvements mints in terms of the Execution in the and the football play and The disciplinary type of approach to the game. Something that I think were some of the weakest links that we had Past few years here. It's ironic that those would be the the weakling Sunday cowboys. You know the cowboys of today you know. In the year. The Jimmy Johnson goes into the hall of fame when those were arguably really his greatest assets. I mean it's just it is rated contract. Yeah right So finally Were recording this right after the conference unstamped ship Games are sad so we've got titans chiefs in the AFC impacts forty niners in the NFC although we didn't mention before we got there. What did you think of Troy Aikman even during the Jimmy announcement about that was very genuine? you know I mean just a moment that You know the Kodak Moment for lack of a better term but you know it was very appropriate You know that he let his emotions you no be shown to a certain degree I think people will Embrace him for that You know it certainly Demonstrates that they had a I think a very special relationship And so I was. I was very You know I was I was also you know maybe a little emotional. Don't do and I saw that but it was. I think a good moment for for football and a good moment for Jimmy Johnson and Troy all three of saint time. I think that's one of those things things that just tugs at you as a sports fan as a cowboys fan. In this instance there are times where you get emotional. I'm not trying to put this in that category but to me it feels. The moment felt a lot because that was a really powerful. Just still frame of Troy if felt like when Roger Staubach doc retired and he talked about Tom Landry and he welled up and he talked about a man in a funny hat. Looked like that you know what I mean like. There's the same sort of love and respect which was cool but anyways so choi will be calling niners packers Who who do you think wins two games last that I? Yeah One last thing on Detroit thing I to me the last thing I was gonna say is it just seemed also that you know maybe you know. He had somewhat lobbied for Jimmy with some of the sports writers. You know some of them you know so this was like okay. You know these guys you know and again. I'm just speculating. But he wanted like you could tell he was invested in them. He wanted it in not that work for it. Yeah and and not that the pride like oh my work paid off like it was pried like this is. Why did that work because he deserves? That was the motion exactly. Yeah no and I kind of felt like there was a little bit of that too. You know like wow. I'm really glad that you know this is happening for Jimmy. And you know everything that a lot of us have have tried to you know portray to others about him as finally come full circle for him so yeah but yeah so You know of the Next week game forty niners and And packers well. You know you and I watched the first time they played earlier. This season in In Boston Boston At a Chili's restaurant after the The cowboys that loss to the Patriots. So we watched that game and and it wasn't much of a game there wasn't much contest it was You know forty niners really just rolling over the packers and I'm not going to go out and predict that you know both teams things You know have matured and done a lot of things since then You Know I. I was impressed with the third down. Conversions tonight by the packers packers. I thought the SEAHAWKS You know could have control. That batter came. You know some of these times some of these things you just say..

"Of you might end this hall of fame speech with that and that would be phenomenal but But yeah no I mean you know one of the the other things. I remember vividly. was you know the the rivalry ettelaat rivals with the NFC's but the one was Buddy Ryan and the eagles was telling US unbelievable. That was fish. I mean you know. And and he brought that To that rivalry because before then it was a very respectful. I mean obviously with with Tom Landry but yeah Tom Landry meal. Yeah I mean Dif- different thing. I mean it went from you. Know a Fencing to wwe. You're not I mean it went to that level exactly and you know they. They made it clear they did not like each other. And you know that was so fun to watch Cowboys Eagles Games. And and you know it still is but you know that was very special that time. I'm too so yeah I mean you know ray for Jimmy. That's fantastic. I saw there was a great tweet and I I forget who tweeted so apologies but because I wanted to ask you who you think should present him and somebody said Jimmy's GonNa Choose Troy and then he's GonNa you know. Change his mind and try to sub. In Steve Walsh which was really fun like that was really funny given the history of that but who should inductive in your opinion I mean i. I don't know who should I mean. I don't know how tennis shoes but I guess what would be. What makes the most sense? What would make you feel the best I guess I think what would be best for TV? And that's where I'm going from my perspective now would be Michael Irvin all my that would be you know just You know made for TV. Because t would You know just bring down the house just before you know. I'm getting Jimmy out on the on the podium in making his speech but yeah you know that would be. I would love to see Michael Irvin. I I really don't want I I. I would be a little dismayed to see Jerry Jones because I I mean everybody knows the story and you know I don't i. I don't think even Jerry would like that. I don't think Jimmy is. He's GonNa do that but you know Yeah I'd love to see Michael Irvin do it or maybe the triplets combined would be another thought To bow out thrill go up there and You know Present him. Well you mentioned that and so Oh if if anyone listening is unaware something that you and I absolutely love I mean we love football we love the NFL and you know we make that really obvious. And it's part of what we talk about. When you're on the podcast and Steph appreciate everyone that kind of you know enjoys it with us and we've been we've been very blessed to be a lot of places in love shopping? NFL WE BEEN TO CANTON. Ohio twice we went with toured in two thousand eight when our window Korean from your alumni. You're on your fellow alumni got got in but we didn't go to that in chime did go to the enshrinement in two thousand ten perhaps the greatest class of all time. What's future Emmitt Smith and Jerry Rice? This class This one and by the way I I learned that. They're doing the centennial inductees on a different week Because it I mean imagine that class like that. That night would take forever in with all the speeches so it will be a little bit unusual in terms of the hall of fame but Do you know as I'm sure you do. Do you know my favorite class. all-time besides the only Barack 'cause twenty seven was really special but at been to you know my favorite class. Yeah I think Was Twenty two thousand six or seven one of those it was two thousand sets. While you're dead I mean it was oh seven. That was is when I love that class forever. That was Michael Irvin's you obviously But there were a lot of danger the berries and mistress Charlie Sanders yes In our league and there was a so many great moments in his speeches he talked about how his mother died before he really got to play football and so he never ever got to look into the camera and say hi mom and so he did it then which was really beautiful. Roger Wurley talked about how his wife was like you're going in the hall defame with Bart Starr and it was just really cool. Surreal moment but one of the best moments was when Gene Hickerson The longtime Qiliang Brown's offensive lyman. Who was was ill at the time? Unfortunately and so he couldn't speak and was in a wheelchair he was and this was at the time when they would still do do the presenters they were they. Were actually go out there and give a speech now. It's the prerecorded video but he was pushed in his wheelchair. ONSTAGE by Bobby Mitchell. Jim Brown and Leroy Kelly the running backs a he blocked for and they said he's he led us all here in the kin and and he's GonNa lead us in one last time this one of the most incredible things I've ever seen And to your point I think the triplets should do something like that I it should be the three of them. I mean it really really really should and then whoever speaks is whoever by that moment would be amazing. Yeah it would and I think You know Jimmy mentioned tonight. You know. All of the other coaches coach with him and players that played for him you know are the reason he's there and I think that would be a very exciting. You know like you know. Close closing the circle or the loop On this holy bent you know because again you know I mean he He did a lot for them. They did a lot for him. And it's only fitting that You know it comes to fruition As a group there but Yeah I mean mean anything like that I would be just beyond the pleased with a Webcam deciding to do that. Going to get back to talking Jimmy Johnson in just a second second before we do going to take a very quick break here award from our sponsors. I'm.

Surreal moment but one of the best moments was when Gene Hickerson The longtime Qiliang Brown's offensive lyman. Who was was ill at the time? Unfortunately and so he couldn't speak and was in a wheelchair he was and this was at the time when they would still do do the presenters they were they. Were actually go out there and give a speech now. It's the prerecorded video but he was pushed in his wheelchair. ONSTAGE by Bobby Mitchell. Jim Brown and Leroy Kelly the running backs a he blocked for and they said he's he led us all here in the kin and and he's GonNa lead us in one last time this one of the most incredible things I've ever seen And to your point I think the triplets should do something like that I it should be the three of them. I mean it really really really should and then whoever speaks is whoever by that moment would be amazing. Yeah it would and I think You know Jimmy mentioned tonight. You know. All of the other coaches coach with him and players that played for him you know are the reason he's there and I think that would be a very exciting. You know like you know. Close closing the circle or the loop On this holy bent you know because again you know I mean he He did a lot for them. They did a lot for him. And it's only fitting that You know it comes to fruition As a group there but Yeah I mean mean anything like that I would be just beyond the pleased with a Webcam deciding to do that. Going to get back to talking Jimmy Johnson in just a second second before we do going to take a very quick break here award from our sponsors. I'm.

This past weekend was the first one with Mike McCarthy as the team's head coach and it was also reported on Sunday afternoon that is expected to be. The team's quarterbacks coach is there reported reported moving on from John Kidnapped and Doug obviously was the team's tight ends coach which means that could be Jason. Witten job I don't know that's you. You know speculation for another day like I said I want this episode to be what it's about and that's about Jimmy Johnson. The former Dallas cowboys head coach the two time superbowl winner. It was announced announced on Sunday is part of the pro. Football Hall of Fame Centennial. Class of two thousand and twenty and it is such fantastic news and and to discuss all of this. We brought an very special guest none other than my dad Top Jimmy we talk his career talking to being a hall of Famer on and on and on and on so let's not waste any time here. He is my dad talking. Jimmy Johnson Hall of Famer here on coaching pleased to be joined now by a very very very very special guest. You ask for them all the time here. He is not in person will reporting over the phone peasants the one and only my best friend. Your Best Friend Dan my Dad Papa Ocho what is up my dude. Hey how are you happy to be here. I'm doing well. We don't record a lot like this Is it strange like do you feel we're not being in my office. It's a little awkward but I think I can manage. Yeah and you will be here For at least one show After the Super Bowl right or before the super bowl or any way to around superbowl time. So we'll have a live recorded or impersonal episode coming at them but we had to get an episode now. Because I tweeted this. Obviously everybody listening. Listening knows that Jimmy Johnson was announced as the three hundred twentieth member of the Hall of fame by the way. Very cool for you in the to share and talk about because we were at Super Bowl fifty one and the twenty eight to three. and He's number three hundred twenty eight but I tweeted this I. I'm thirty years old. Is I turned thirty in October. And I look a lot of people are cowboys fans because like for me you know. My Dad was a cowboys fan. You know you raise me that way. And we've shared a lot of great times and as well watching in whatever but a large reason that so many people my age my generation became came cowboys. Fans was because of what Jimmy Johnson did and so I could think of nobody else. I would rather have the sort of post announcement talk with Jimmy. Johnson is a pro football hall of Famer. What do you think about while I'm thrilled? That it Jimmy was Recognizing that manner I. It's come full circle. I mean you know I I. There's a part of me to believe that the triplets wouldn't have gotten you know the the amount of recognition and all the success they had without the Fabulous coaching that. They had by By Jimmy Johnson Obviously you know. They had a lot of talent to you. Know to begin with but Jimmy was The guy that put it all together you know. Put all the pieces of the puzzle together. made the Chemistry come together you know. And you know his psychology major major really came into full effect when he did that with the triplets on the other members of the nineties cowboys. you know so. Yeah Yeah I think it's very very exciting. You know that You know if if they're in the hall of fame you know he and Jerry's in the hall of fame you know Jimmy. Certainly Belongs along that same classification in that same same accolades that they've received because he was part of that nucleus. Ah The prime. We'll get to Jerry and a little bit and there is a bit of a you know an elephant in the room but there's an elephant in the room sort of wrinkle wrinkled at this but I mentioned that you know people my age kind of became cowboys fans to some degree or at least their fandom was all the more strengthened by Jimmy and this is a topic for another day. But you and I've talked about this I mean I don't know that the cowboys I mean. They're America's doom not trying to take away from that but I don't know that they become. I'm this global brand. If they have that decade of success in any other decade I think the fact that I mean. You know better than I. You know in the nineties like the the American economy booms you know what I mean like. It's this you know. It's the the birth of the Internet early on in its very I don't WanNa say delicate but very precarious decade in United States history. And so the you know. The country took off in a different way and so to have the cowboys do what they did in this really blitz and glamorous sway really added to the legend of it. All I mean you obviously you know where a cowboys fan for a long time before that. But what did he do for you. How did you know what what was that? Like to to live and experience. And I mean I know you you and Uncle Mandy and uncle George and everybody those characters that Ocho listeners don't necessarily know about but I mean you you had some great times. I mean in in a way that you know people might didn't so what. What was that like just to live experience on? What did it do for your fan? Well you know I think that You know everybody At the time had the utmost respect for Coach Tom Landry Hendry and You know we had come to believe in him. He had brought an enormous amount of success to the cowboys and You know so. Yeah I mean. Everybody respected him as the elder statesman. And you know I think when When Jerry took over the team and brought not in Jimmy I mean there was an initial Maybe negative reaction to that partly because of maybe a little bit of the disrespect respect that was shown to To Tom Landry But you know the way that I think Jimmy was able to have the team embrace him immediately and you know the very very contrast contrasted style that he had from Tom. Tom Landry You know just made us hard to believe you know that there could be more success in Dallas You know in the very near future and as you know I think they started out once one in sixteen His very first season they did for me. Yeah and and and You know so. We're like wow you know what just happened and here and You know and then. That's when the Herschel Walker Trade Came about and and You know they were able to put together The trade for that that ended up getting those the pig for Amit and You know in three years later you you know we're super bowl champions than you know so yeah it was. It was a very trying time for those first couple of years. But you you know Jimmy never relented you know his his Coaching style is Method of of being You know a fair yet berry assertive assertive disciplinarian type of coach. You know proved to be very very successful. The players love him. You know even though he was extremely you know disciplined and and Very little tolerance. I recall that you know he He cut a one of the running back named Kurban Richards after he fumbled twice in the game meaningless game in. I mean to to be exactly but you know but you know and some people said he made an example out of him. But you know I think it could have been anybody I really do. Feel that way and You know he just had to demonstrate that You know there was a certain Red Line that you didn't cross a lot of variables involved in the operation and the business and the end of the game and the team and you know he You know was very very You know just upfront about it. I mean you know you know the thing that he did to solidify you know the The fans following him. You know things like you know when he said You know the the Championship in the nineties. Yeah three inch spoiled lettuce. You can put that in three inch bold letters we will win this game and you know I mean that day I mean I think that's one of the you know the the most Euphoria I've ever self as a cowboys fan. When he said that? Because we're win or lose. You just felt good that you had a coach you know. Oh that was You know using every bit of his you know Ed's in in terms of philosophical to try to You you know when one pump his team up and also intimidate the other guys to the point that you know. Maybe they'd be. You know anger that they go in and start making mistakes which they did. YEA GOTTA no penalty to start the game like before kick-off. Yeah Yeah I mean you know He. He pioneered those kinds of things. You know to get into other people's heads And so you know that's That's the type of thing that Jimmy brought to the game To the team the organization that you know we just haven't seen anything in close since then and you know you know being very honest I've since we've changed coaches after him I've always had that You know maybe subliminal fault that you know maybe we could get Jimmy bag but yeah I recognized. It's past his time now so I didn't even cross my mind this week anymore but in previous times and I think I shared that were the the I would say man. It'd be awesome if they'd get Jimmy back but but no I mean he was the one of a kind was unique and in many aspects aspects and You know I can't wait to see you know his Acceptance Speech and dancing. I agree you're right. I think what ask what super awesome about Jimmy. Johnson is that there's this law and there's there's a lawyer for check mall and there's a lawyer for Bill Walsh you know in these. He's like you know they're these gigantic figures that were super respected in these brilliant men. That did all these crazy things. Dramatically not Jimmy but but Jimmy was just this like I mean this bad ass. You know this I'm GonNa drop them on the table. You know what I mean like in in that was a really Character that was a new sort of character I think for the NFL And you can pick you mentioned the Carbon Richard Story There's also the the asthma tests in the asthma field legend. And I think the best sort of like Jimmy's story is the three inch four letters but that would never happened today. Just because coaches are so stoic. You know what I mean like they hate talking as is the the best part about that story is. It wasn't like you know. Jimmy said you know after practice when the media was around he called into a radio show you know he called in because he was yeah. He was hired of of hearing even the suggestion suggestion that his team wasn't going to just whip ass in like I think that that hunger that aggression I mean like now people say they like oh I want an aggressive coach like the kind of guy that will go for like on fourth and three. That was Jimmy before you know that sort of wave cool. Yeah exactly and you know to to peel that onion back a little bit the title game. You know three interesting. He didn't do that. You know look I want to get your thoughts on the toddler games a a little bit. But he didn't do that against the two thousand nine hundred Tennessee. Titans led by Ryan Tannehill. He did that against Steve Young. And Jerry Rice. You know like the the a Santa Mighty San Francisco is already beat him the year prior. But you know he did that. A against a a Bee's that wanted to come in their house house in get revenge and he just said you know what I'm good you know. There's a lot of quotes he's got he's got the one about you. Know if you swing it a guerilla You don't swing it in lightly you hit him with everything you got which I think was their mentality but you know some. We haven't even mentioned. I think you know that I don't want to say he deserves credit for as we're way to put it but Jimmy coined how about them cowboys. And you know that's the I'm not saying like put him in the hall of fame for that but that that's just what makes them special the cowboys fans. You know what I mean. Yeah and you know you hear every Many many teams many different sports at many different levels you that same term that he coined they'll Kansas J.. Exciting them whatever. Even how about them apples in one of the movies he's in so yeah but But no I mean and I fully expect that him to interject that phrase That that that term that he coined in some part of you might end this hall of fame speech with that and that would be phenomenal but But yeah no I mean you know one of the the other things. I remember vividly. was you know the the rivalry ettelaat rivals with the NFC's but the one was Buddy Ryan and the eagles was telling US unbelievable. That was fish. I mean you know. And and he brought that To that rivalry because before then it was a very respectful..

You know proved to be very very successful. The players love him. You know even though he was extremely you know disciplined and and Very little tolerance. I recall that you know he He cut a one of the running back named Kurban Richards after he fumbled twice in the game meaningless game in. I mean to to be exactly but you know but you know and some people said he made an example out of him. But you know I think it could have been anybody I really do. Feel that way and You know he just had to demonstrate that You know there was a certain Red Line that you didn't cross a lot of variables involved in the operation and the business and the end of the game and the team and you know he You know was very very You know just upfront about it. I mean you know you know the thing that he did to solidify you know the The fans following him. You know things like you know when he said You know the the Championship in the nineties. Yeah three inch spoiled lettuce. You can put that in three inch bold letters we will win this game and you know I mean that day I mean I think that's one of the you know the the most Euphoria I've ever self as a cowboys fan. When he said that? Because we're win or lose. You just felt good that you had a coach you know. Oh that was You know using every bit of his you know Ed's in in terms of philosophical to try to You you know when one pump his team up and also intimidate the other guys to the point that you know. Maybe they'd be. You know anger that they go in and start making mistakes which they did. YEA GOTTA no penalty to start the game like before kick-off. Yeah Yeah I mean you know He. He pioneered those kinds of things. You know to get into other people's heads And so you know that's That's the type of thing that Jimmy brought to the game To the team the organization that you know we just haven't seen anything in close since then and you know you know being very honest I've since we've changed coaches after him I've always had that You know maybe subliminal fault that you know maybe we could get Jimmy bag but yeah I recognized. It's past his time now so I didn't even cross my mind this week anymore but in previous times and I think I shared that were the the I would say man. It'd be awesome if they'd get Jimmy back but but no I mean he was the one of a kind was unique and in many aspects aspects and You know I can't wait to see you know his Acceptance Speech and dancing. I agree you're right. I think what ask what super awesome about Jimmy. Johnson is that there's this law and there's there's a lawyer for check mall and there's a lawyer for Bill Walsh you know in these. He's like you know they're these gigantic figures that were super respected in these brilliant men. That did all these crazy things. Dramatically not Jimmy but but Jimmy was just this like I mean this bad ass. You know this I'm GonNa drop them on the table. You know what I mean like in in that was a really Character that was a new sort of character I think for the NFL And you can pick you mentioned the Carbon Richard Story There's also the the asthma tests in the asthma field legend. And I think the best sort of like Jimmy's story is the three inch four letters but that would never happened today. Just because coaches are so stoic. You know what I mean like they hate talking as is the the best part about that story is. It wasn't like you know. Jimmy said you know after practice when the media was around he called into a radio show you know he called in because he was yeah. He was hired of of hearing even the suggestion suggestion that his team wasn't going to just whip ass in like I think that that hunger that aggression I mean like now people say they like oh I want an aggressive coach like the kind of guy that will go for like on fourth and three. That was Jimmy before you know that sort of wave cool. Yeah exactly and you know to to peel that onion back a little bit the title game. You know three interesting. He didn't do that. You know look I want to get your thoughts on the toddler games a a little bit. But he didn't do that against the two thousand nine hundred Tennessee. Titans led by Ryan Tannehill. He did that against Steve Young. And Jerry Rice. You know like the the a Santa Mighty San Francisco is already beat him the year prior. But you know he did that. A against a a Bee's that wanted to come in their house house in get revenge and he just said you know what I'm good you know. There's a lot of quotes he's got he's got the one about you. Know if you swing it a guerilla You don't swing it in lightly you hit him with everything you got which I think was their mentality but you know some. We haven't even mentioned. I think you know that I don't want to say he deserves credit for as we're way to put it but Jimmy coined how about them cowboys. And you know that's the I'm not saying like put him in the hall of fame for that but that that's just what makes them special the cowboys fans. You know what I mean. Yeah and you know you hear every Many many teams many different sports at many different levels you that same term that he coined they'll Kansas J.. Exciting them whatever. Even how about them apples in one of the movies he's in so yeah but But no I mean and I fully expect that him to interject that phrase That that that term that he coined in some part.

"famer" Discussed on Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson

"American guy not heard porn hubs hiring arduous. Argonne exactly Don't ask me how I know that. What are you up to these days? Man What are you spend your time on. Well I'll tell you what man something that it I think Hopefully Mike might be interested in is I went up to Columbia. Meditating and I did stem cells and I'll man I'm one of those guys. People say oh due to the SPENCERS McGee changing us. I get whatever I heard that a million times and as like okay. Well then I actually got footage from Hughes News. Chuck Liddell Nashville Story Documentary unbelievable. And that's what sold me. I was like okay. I'll give it a try so hi go up there and I do this thing and put me under that. Give me all these stem cells. I wake up one morning and tell me you're gonNA be sore in these different join areas and I was okay so I wake up and I'm going to get up going bathroom. It's like three four in the morning. I get into the bathroom and I go back down to lay in bed and I was like like my shoulders Schmidt. He's a shoulder older but where I get really stiff my back of my neck because I broke my neck twice in my lower back once in the middle of my bags all jacked up and I'm like there's no pain I got no. I got no information nation. I was like okay. I'M GONNA go to bed. I'm dreaming I wake up a nine o'clock next morning I'm like wake up again. I'm like I don't have any inflammation I'm still sewing shows and everything. They warned that and I was like. Wow this okay. I'm going to slow down on this. I'M NOT GONNA jump out of here and say everything's working. I wait a week. I I couldn't raise my arms above my head going airport. I go this high because I've got a titanium bowl my shoulder. I mean completely reconstructed so hard time arms within a week eight two weeks Bam. I'm like wow. This is a game changer. Literally I went up to Australia and I did a forty minute match with Dan Seven. I'd never been able to do that before these stem cells dreams. I've been a now I'm GonNa do it. Three weeks now. Is supposed to see more results. David Chiu said hey this is just beginning man. You're going to see so many results within six months that it's going to be a game changer. It's already is for me so I'm like man if I can share this with people people and let them know how it's done to me and they can help them and I'm all about that so I hope that maybe you'll get a chance to see what that is because I really truly and I'm not saying this. It's just to say it I'm telling you it is a game changer. Put a number Dan. I'm still sure but one thing to talk about. Is I want to talk about my love breath. He's I fought in a very first. UFC thought over in Japan with open hands strikes. I fought with four ounce gloves on. I fought MUI tie of. I've done it all. I've fought every box. Sparred with guys to help them get ready for their fights don at all and the one thing that I fell in love with his bare knuckle and the the reason why I fell in love with it was because I felt like like this is pure man against man God given talent and that there's nothing there that's going to get in way I mean you hit it with a jab accounts right anytime you hit some accounts but if you miss it it also counts because it works against you your your hand so I fell in love with that man. I said you know if I ever get a chance to bring back bare knuckle. Because they started putting four ounce ungloved four ounce gloves on guys started saying. WE'RE GONNA make it safer. Well the reality of that's not not true. They wanted to protect the guys that were winning the guys that were knocking people out. Because they knew they could him in the back of the head the side of the head and they wouldn't damage their hand and so they've made it into a four billion dollar business. Kudos could job. But that's not what I fell in love with I fell in love with a bare knuckle part because it was so pure and I said you. You know I get a chance to do that. I'm going to bring it back. Two guys are GonNa get in the ring. They're going to stand toe to toe or whatever they WANNA do move move their feet and however they want to do but it's going to stay on their feet now going to the ground bare knuckle fighting. I'm bringing it back. People kept screaming. Stand up stand up. Well we're standing them up rice smell. Why do you think we finding so much? I think he's good at it. We won yeah something we want something from the status the beginning of time too strong men in the World Khili leave. Since the since Achilles everybody wanted to be the toughest man in the world king of the Hill Yeah respect yes backs minute works against you have to get old. They start looking at you like what happened to my respect. No even that becomes a form respect right. Well Yes yes depending on that even that becomes a former addict. Yeah I've seen this emergence of bare knuckle and I think it's really interesting and so you you believe that are maybe the science says is it would make sense. I mean you put four ounce. He put waited accessories on your on your weapons and that's GonNa add damage you know. It's like a football helmet and football. You know really Louis. You're just putting his a spear on that thing given a guy a chance to do more damage without hurting their hand. But you know and England pinnacle fitness. It's brilliant is it quicker. It's quicker so fast. Malaysia went in and fought lobe of I think it was when conor McGregor Gregor's guys and it was really boxing against and win. A boxer goes into a bare knuckle. Fight Mall Nausea. I think made a mistake because he thought ought bare knuckle boxing. Well that's crazy because you gotta think about boxing. You got eight ounce gloves well. Those gloves are a lot bigger. So you can pick a boo block bareknuckle. You can't block footwork. You gotta be moved more. Came in there with the wrong idea. He thought he could block L.. He got he got the outlet up and so I think that's I really think that's the exciting part of it because it's almost like an a very beginning days with UFC. When they first I started out? It's like now we had that same concept where you're trying to figure out. Everybody says boxing doubt better or MMA might adapt better. And I'm thinking to myself. I think it's individual. I think it's the character of an individual that says. Hey I'm going to come in. I'm going to learn because it's different than a lot of these guys. Want to try to think it's similar I same as not bare. Knuckle is his own beast. It's different it's faster from the time. The Bell Rings through the end of the bill. Third Round it's on there's no feeling Out Process it's like when he thought it was like right. I mean you're right now a lot of guys they always want to kind of get that one or two rounds of feel it out will embarrass learn how you take one or two rounds of feel it out and you're done getting over what what's your feeling on it. Mike interesting with the rule that the average Abbas not really like bare knuckle fighting boxing. They had different rules. You know they didn't have the Markets the Queensbury. Three minutes. One minute rest if you knock the guy down eighteen eighty if you're not gonNA have ended around so you're not the guy down ten times. He's not going to ten rounds. You know. So they had to change the rule but I think it's pretty awesome. It has it has had the base wants to see it. Yeah I've seen me. I think it's necessary very well. It seems very excited. I don't go like one one fighting sport worse than another spite. But we're fighting. You can die fighting. That's the unwritten law when we found a contract that's the law that we know clearly seen it over and over then as growing up being fight. Unwritten law you can die training in the fight and I'm glad Eddie said that because I hear a lot of people trying to say bare knuckles more dangerous or boxing's more dangerous because more people have died will have been. It's been here forever but it's just starting back back back or MMA is to me. It's this man every single combat sport. Whether it's football I mean even is soccer. I mean there's danger in any athletic sports so when people talk about this yeah people can get her. Yes somebody may die. You get it like this. Anybody who steps in the ring signs a contract and understands what they're getting into. There's a trade off like we talked about earlier. There's a status about being fighter about being the best in the world about combat killy's being on top of the world. There's IT's a trade off to that too. You can die so you don't have to do it. But if you want the status to but listen to look at my life a living Brownsville Brooklyn Oakland more cut off welfare. I'M GONNA dine. It's building if I don't robber still get shot from still. Somebody should get caught and put the rest of my life. I'M GONNA die and get get paid money. My life is worth it. I thought the my fourth in my life for it. If I'd I fucking signed the contract I don't you think how many people all over the world you don't think we you know how many people would have had no shit say they got talent. Some people don't even know how to find the fuck I do for money. Yeah Yeah if you get the word clear nobody cares. Diana's we come to the concept of real concept. No one cares about dying when I can eat is the thought that about that. Yeah Yeah that argument is it. Goes nowhere you know because like you said I mean. That's that's part of. Why people do it you know is because the stakes are so high and you look at the White People Watch it because the stakes are so hot? It's it's exciting and this is why I think that bare knuckle is really starting to take off is because it is fast being more when they sit down WanNa be especially in today's generation with all the social media. Everything is happening out there. They don't WanNa wait for something to happen. They don't WanNA WANNA wait for storyline to play out. They want it now your bare knuckle. Is that kind of fighting words happening now or you still fighting Ken. No Oh that's funny when people say there's other people have mentioned it on their shows and our people our age still in great shape that I'm just curious when you're in great shape wrestle like I've got a show coming out with impact on the twentieth of September where I'm not twenty September twentieth of October. I don't even remember. I got so much going on but aggressing for impact. They've got a doing with them.

"With Jesse Thorn is a production of maximum fund dot org and is distributed by NPR? eh interested to hear his so much I'll tell it again because it needs to be hurt too because especially for for me now for they walk up and it's like a movie I always say it's like a movie and I see the look on my mom's face my brother's face and it was that look of disappointment ago I was GonNa say I I read an article about you that suggested that you who didn't address your team I mean you played in the NFL for what like fifteen years seventeen years seventeen years most of that time you were one of the best players in the league and and it wasn't until you retire that you addressed your team I've never been on a professional football team I get the impression that there's two categories of players that address the team one is whoever's the best at addressing team and the other is whoever's the best football and you are one of the best football players on pretty much every team you ever played on and so I thank you that had to be a choice of scared scared to speak up scared to what about it was scary I think it was who am I I've always been you know people are cocky and arrogant I think I'm the complete opposite where I was always feeling like I like I wouldn't sure up like I wouldn't say anything inspiring who the hell am I to say something to these guys Oh yeah well you know you're you're one of the best of your position even as I got older it's like oh you've been the ten balls I was still afraid to speak up that wasn't going to blend in also to that I was going to sound corny that was going to sound preachy I was in my head I played football the funny thing is I could I could be in my heart and that's where you wanna be in all areas of your life there's a difference there's a reason why anybody who's out there played sports the coach always says getting your heart that's saying that you'll see from pop warner to doesn't to the pros play with heart that Amen you're gonNa hear that where I could do that on the field but in the classroom or meaning like the meeting rooms in normal everyday life I had a hard time doing a lot of people do that's why a lot of people you know I got I need a couple of drinks of alcohol loosen up let's just because you you WANNA get out of your head you want to get your heart that's all that's doing I'm not surprised to hear that because I feel like playing sports on the on the one hand there's a lot of responsibilities that you're managing at the same time on the other hand you are using your body in a way that almost kind of obliterates your anger diety like the extent to which you have to stretch what your body can do I of course I'm speaking of h fourteen and fifteen little league in your case be like the NFC championship game but like that act of being physical is something that you can just pour all Louis feelings into through that physical expression in a way that you can't when you are sitting around looking at playbook or you know putting on shoulder pads or whatever yeah you think you would and a lot of people maybe they can but as you level up as you keep getting better you can't just rely on that anymore can't rely I on the physicality of it because you're GONNA have to you're gonNA have to use your brain and you're GonNa have to use your heart and you're gonNA have to connect those two have to work together in harmony that's what the great ones do that's that's kind of the hallmark of of a hall of Famer it's consistency it's presence it's getting out of your head it's playing with your heart it's fearlessness its fulfillment it's passionate it's all these different words that we use to get us get ourselves going but you have to be able to express that and at the professional level when everybody's equal to you talent wise is back I'm strong you know you're not or okay or I'm I'm faster and you know you're not you're not the fastest guy anymore everybody in here runs.

"Becoming the best version of yourself she calls leveling up here's a clip from a recent episode with Jessica Alba she's of course the star of many films including fantastic four and sin city among others in the episode they talk about Jessica's childhood which included a lot of how with problems and economic hardships she got her start as a child actor in this clip Tony and Jessica talk about what it's like to audition she made me read it over take your spirit but she was Nice Lady was nice and she looks at me on the way out and she puts her arms up like this and she goes cover Jimmy Huck huck because he can say I was just distraught and and I was really working hard on this but I went onto the parking lot and I was like like it's one of those even start my car was staring out the window for twenty minutes going how am I doing like this is really really tough I can only imagine as a child but but obviously you're you're better than me it's not I don't know if I am hugh just have to have a really really hard it bill you build a very very tough shell twenty dollars welcome to Bullseye it's so nice heavy on the show you present you have me you're in a very small group of Bullseye guests who are definitely bigger than me and how are you unlike six three to fifteen but you're like six five and I know you probably played at like two fifty or to sixty or something close I'm looking at you right now you're I'd say somewhat more fit than I am right now somewhat was there a point in your life where you weren't almost always the biggest guy around the biggest person around big was a mute which is crazy because my father is five five eleven maybe six foot six foot at my mom is five four and so my brother and I a my biological by the Chris he's he's about six three two hundred forty pounds of muscle and I'm six five whatever you know two hundred fifty was not that much anymore so we just came out like mutes But I was always that big I was I was taught you know in the back of the class and the sir and by the time I was a sophomore in high school I was right around six five I thought I was going to be bigger too because I got sixteen feet and most people's is sixteen feet are up in that six ten In above I dunno always felt like I got robbed a little bit on the because my foot is so big I mean I imagine by the time you were sixteen years old you were good enough it's sports that being that big mostly fell the lack a positive thing material always feel like a positive thing for you when you look at it because I wasn't abnormally tall wasn't that guy but I was just telling everybody else unusually and maybe you know backed younger girls grow quicker the toss people in the class where the girls usually like two girls and then me always dolls boy so then I was attic too so it was it was nice it was an advantage for young scary kid like me 'cause I was just because I was tall and big didn't mean I was very sensitive in very fearful for whatever reason I didn't have that side of it so I'm glad I was tall Kinda like ward off a bunch of people there was going to say did it because sometimes they can have the opposite in fact like sometimes when you are the biggest person around when trouble goes looking it lands on you just because yeah it seems like it would be more more interesting yeah well it from bigger people I guess when I was in eighth grade just hold history and I told her that my hall of fame speech a bully that came to from high school to pick on me and I was in eighth grade so that's where it was kinda playing against week because still to this day I have no oh idea why he wanted to fight me and beat me up and actually at two of them one through most of my eighth grade year and then one from a different high school who said I'm going to get in on some of this too and I'm gonNA I WANNA beat up Tony how does that even happen I don't know honestly I don't where they like waiting for you after school kids out there who go through something like thirty onto a bully situation so it was my a eighth grade year about two months into it I'm feeling good I'm popular and all that good stuff then all of a sudden I find out that this kid from high school wants to beat me up so anyway go to the fight in all these people are there at this park like all the schools Mr found out about it I did what any normal kid would do I turn around fighting this this is a no win situation so I went and hid and all the kids were at my house banging on there we're trying to give him to come out they're calling me all time. the names and then it gets even worse and it culminates to where I'm at my eighth grade graduation and I'm sitting in the stance he shows up to the graduation now no to fight me my whole family's there after we throw our hats up the -gratulations class I go and hide behind a wall the whole family it like just my brother mouthed the words what are you doing and my mom didn't say a word she just looked at me with absolute just disappointment and I said to myself in that instant I will never ever see that look on their face again and it changed my life just like that in it instant I was no lowering let fear cripple me and run from any type of situation I'm GonNa get it over with if I have to take a weapon then I'll take a boat weapon but I'm going to ace it right head on a chain my life like before that I was also to pop warner people number for football I quit the first year 'cause I wasn't good in the second year my mom made me play because she's like quitting this year Tony Anthony Anthony not quitting this time but I still didn't play you're supposed to get six plays back then in the eighties and I didn't even get those six plays because had nothing to do with talent obviously it was a fear inside me that I could not shake couldn't get over that eighth grade bully changed everything for me I went back out my freshman year football and I was now like one of the best on the team because this whole new attitude shift happened in me and I'm thankful for it I'm thankful that it happened I'm just trying to imagine where my mom is disappointed that I didn't get into a fight you don't know my mom duty Gonzalez she's not the milk and cookies mom she's going to tell you the truth she's from the south side of Chicago grew up somewhat in the in the streets and she is very like look you go face it no matter what happens get it over with and you give it your best shot and you take what comes at you it doesn't matter in your life will be better for that and so she's a very wise woman pretty much all middle schoolers are miserable there may be not miserable middle schoolers I'd like to see one if you're listening in your middle school and you're like yeah it's chill email me I'll send you a note of congratulations define not doing it the right way if you're chilling out in junior high which I believe I'm with you I have four kids still work I years of my life and it's kids that they're so meet at that age to each other because they're trying to find power so they're mean to each other I and I tell my kids all the time I have an eleven year old and a nine year old about to approach that and we home school the middle ones for that reason honestly that's a big part of it is because sixth seventh and eighth grade or so the hormones are raging is such a hard time in those children's life I kind of want that let me kind of guide you through that and then we'll put you back in school when you get high school besides that fight what do you think you were scared about when you're that age of scared of speaking up and that didn't stop eighth grade that was kind of carried with me all the way through until like three years.
