"Okay. Here's the article by michelle voelpel police in in the in the show notes for you but this is about dawn staley when asked for the olympics if she would consider a second go round as usa women's basketball head coach dawn. Staley said jokingly that she needed to win in tokyo before even thinking about that now. The team usa has secured its seventh consecutive olympic gold medal. Staley has answered. Staley had an answer. Sunday i'm done. Staley smiled as she said it. In the americans post game news conference and was asked by. Us guard diana terachi. Does that feel good on guard. Sue bird diana terachi. One fifth olympic gold medal also confirmed that this will be here last olympics but she had said that even before going to tokyo to rossio on the other hand said you in paris which is the site of the twenty twenty four olympics though it was unclear whether she was joking. Or not okay. I played the clips in the first block in a black for you from sue. Bird dawn staley. Oh gosh i'm really like emotional about the dawn staley news but this is what i wanted to bring to your attention because i unclear about this as well And here's i'm just gonna read the last paragraph of this staley's departure means there will be all new leadership for the us women's basketball program by the next major competition. The twenty twenty two world cup national team director. Carol callan who has overseen the program since ninety nineteen ninety-five announced in july that she was stepping down from that role although she will still continue as prevot president of fiba americas so now carol callan is involved with fiba and it was feeble ultimately. If i'm not mistaken that said no to neka agoo mckay. I don't know if it was to be america's so here's the article former wnba mvp neck. Ogle mckay was notified by fiba that her petition to play for her native nigeria in the upcoming tokyo olympics was denied due to quote substantial involvement for more than ten years with us team usa sources. Toll espn wednesday. The nigerian basketball federation filed an appeal too feeble on behalf of good mckay and elizabeth williams zealander dream center who was also denied because of previous involvement with team usa. The federation wrote that yoga mckay and williams were quote. Two of the top players that would have made our team one of the strongest at the games. That's the nigerian federation wrote that. So i don't know. I just thought it was interesting That piece but speaking of neck agoo mckay. Let's go to her conversation at The la sparks media availability. So we're getting media availabilities in case you can't Tell why just gave you Media availabilities from the olympics. But we're going to hear from the sparks you're also going to hear from the mystics because there's some news there and Yeah lots of news but neka ogm mckay got emotional during her media. Avail the other day when asked about just reacting to everything that's happened regarding not making the us team the petition. Not being accepted for her. To play for nigeria. So here's a little taste of that. It's been a lot of like trying to figure out how to how i want to come out of this. You know because. I think when you endure situations that are tough in life you can choose any differ roads and their stages. You know and so now i just. I'm just really grateful to be playing with my team. You know. I'm grateful to be on a team with people that care about me And i just wanna play. I just want to play basketball. And i you know they always say like situations in trials you know you you. You grow stronger In what is inside of you is kind of like exacerbated. And so i would like to say that out of that like i've always been described as resilient and i think i had to kind of tell myself that a lot to make sure that i believed it because it's been a few weeks of feeling on invaluable or unworthy and so like it's been very difficult. I'm sorry i swear i wasn't good. It's been very difficult. So i just wanna play basketball. Oh sorry i just want to play and have fun and emotional neck. Oga mckay again. There's been a blemish on usa basketball for quite some time. This was a hard olympics It ended with a medal. It ended with two players making history with coach. The deserves so much more than she will likely get Brand stewards the mvp of the tournament. I don't know how was it. Asia wilson and even brittany griner really had a great a fantastic gold medal game Has me eating my words. it's just a lot. It's exhausting I did not obviously go through. What neka has gone through. But i feel her emotion and so many other things that we've had to endure sushi's emotional for a lot of reasons. I'm sure but i from what i heard her saying is that she's glad to return to the court and to be with her. La sparks team and to return in a space senate away where she knows that she's valued because when you're not playing and you're in the middle of turmoil as neka was unsure. It's hard to to hang on to all of the good. And i just imagine what it must take tanakh neck. Ogle mckay off of confidence. I mean that just baffles my mind. But we're not gonna we're going to end on what we hope is a lighter. Note someone else that did not make the twenty twenty twenty twenty. One team is atlanta della. Promising future once. She can stay healthy it which she has not been able to do but we're going to hear some updates on linda de you know had a fantastic tournament. Emma amon. her numbers are up there. With asia. wilson. With brian stewart. You know us to do is another player. And they played fewer games because they got knocked out sooner so But we're going to hear from the washington mystics about elena della don end a little bit about.

Yes yes damn. That's awesome you ready. I feel like gearing a civil every time you see me. Tweet can't wait for college football. That's because i'm daydreaming about calling cops. You're gambling ramps up everywhere consumption. Everything is exciting every weekend and the weather changes. I'm ready for fall myself. Let's go i first topic. I don't think we've done since team. Usa won the golden fried. That fucking hoopla about people like. Let's change the program. We need to send these guys over. Not these guys. We need a different coach. We need a different approach. The kendrick perkins everyone else is taken over the sport and then she's like kevin durant guy. Yes i also i so. The time we lost a france in tokyo was a little like okay. What's going on. But i heard someone who is out there. A friend of mine. Who is out in vegas. During the mcgregor fight said that he saw like almost the entire team usa at like party. Four em club and then was over the next day. Turn on the tv. And they were like playing nigeria. We until there's like an elimination game. You can take team. Usa seriously because shit like that. I like we'll win when it matters but right now it's ball out in fucking whatever you know whatever livingstone even so in the gold medal game against france like without durant. We're in trouble. He says that we couldn't escort. I you know like dame couldn't score nobody score than he he like puts us homes back source. Twenty one. The first half. He's he's he's that guy and it used to be mellow and then i think katie is officially like clips in and all like total points. Total wherever lebron. I don't know one of the funniest tweets of all time. Some random like lebron fan account tweeted on. I'll pull it up. Because i gotta get the verbiage right it was. Is this about this. This is twelve hours after the. Utsa won the goal saturday morning. So yes saturday morning Lebron james fan account tweeted two thousand seven fiba americas team second round the broncos a perfect eleven for eleven from the field scoring twenty six points in fourteen minutes. Here you quote treated it with prayers hands in king crown. Look two thousand seven fiba americas tournament second round. I mean who are you. Pan account even put in quotes reading. This is he the fan account to like. Who runs the fan of. We'll say twenty six points. Fourteen minutes pretty impressive. People america tournaments second round uruguay. Like come on man. That's the most lebron you. That's lebron and lebron. yeah i feel like until we you know like losing olympics or don't say in two thousand four and then and then since cheeser me like we're not fucking around anymore and it'll probably like will start to care less and less and less until we lose one and then we ratchet up again and then what's going to happen shouting out these girls and saying anything but you know women's soccer lost and when we come to the next olympics they're gonna be it's gonna be a concentrated effort to get some new blood in there and they're going to destroy people in twenty twenty seven. The world is obviously has incredible talent. Now didn't have thirty years ago. Right like luca all these they are yet. he's asked concentrated town. Like they don't have the america i confidently think that we could have put probably three different teams very quickly moving the chesapeake. Yes if you had everyone of every american in the nba. If he was saying they were willing to play. Go deep and win the gold. I if it was Usa versus the world. Maybe we can get creative because lucas good and this guy this guy but on soccer team we've taken a team of people who weren't there like lebron. Why chris starting five jimmy butler wasn't there. Yeah right honest all this guys. Yeah all right so team. Usa all gucci also in the olympics. We've got the pentathlon. I'm gonna miss the olympics. By the way i didn't really watch it because of the peacock thing but i enjoyed like the drama of i just have background the olympics and then i tweeted that one clip of the three on three. That was like the funniest game ever watched because he missed like seventeen three seconds in the. Ioc lock out talk they are the dumbest the dominate the strictest. Could you imagine having like shutting down people who do free promotion. Like the reason i started washington's because someone else tweeted right. That's why you knew it. And that's why i'm stunned about this The negotiations we're having with. Mlb they used to be like second a little bit. clearly we're going to broadcast their games. but new pentathlon is swimming fencing yes swimming fencing equestrian shooting and cross country. It's kinda baller. I said it's it's like if if you if you send like if you were in world war one who would win because you've got to do all started especially the plot of the the original pentathlon. This is called the modern pentathlon. The original one was literally in greece. What all the five things that make you a good soldier sword work and running and hand to hand put an and and shooting and all. It's just it's essentially. Who has the most richest yet so can trained for croquet shit at the end of it. Anyway though. there's this chick. Also what they do is for the equestrian you don't go with your horse assigned a horse that you need like stock horses. Yeah that's that's kind of weird that they're like this is like they must horses. No it's like a. It's like a a blind to weekend date. You got a little bit of time with yet but they actually say part of the competition is who can grow fast replied light. Yeah so you don't get to have the best of your horses asshole boy. It's it's basically the old saying there's no bad dogs only bad trainers van europan morsch which you know horses will kick the shit out of you know. That's that's their trainers fault. Yeah all right well. What what she so saint boy was the worse he didn't he just wouldn't jump. He wouldn't go into the into the equestrian. I left in thirty third place. Because the horse just said fuck it and there's this shot man leaping and he's smiling and i know he's not smiling pretty smile. I look so she starts whipping and then they kind of he's kind of just being unruly and they go towards the edge of the i don't know And there's a trainer that goes to the horse not nice but people are like this is animal abuse and they need to be like kicked out of the olympics it. It's not that bad of a bunch but it is funny. I'll say in the face. Ask a horse. Horses are big dog or cat. You can punch a horse awards in the to watch. It's so quick. it's. I'm surprised this hasn't been taken down yet but clearly the horses in distress or she's like whacking it asks up and then watch this. Oh that's no no no good gay. They're calling this animal cruelty. That would not sign off on this but it is funny man because what we're seeing here. We're seeing an olympic athlete. Who was abused by. Its trainers who didn't want to compete horse. I'm just saying horse aside and last time there was an athlete who was abused by trainer. Who didn't want to compete. We call the coward now for the horse on all that go team i think they were like legit trying to kick those. Those people like no. No you can punch your horse on the hindquarters with this. Basically every argument online now these people were just want to get this kicked out of the olympics. They don't fucking watch this sport now. They showed up for one day. They're like all his this cousy. They'll never watch it again. Yup let them and play with their horses and the field. They're they're not hurting anyone. They did technically violate a rule. Says right so they got. They got disqualified. But then there are people saying i guess awesome look how happy saint boy is the reply tweet. The worst part is that this will probably be put down. You put the loss so we're going to put you to the glue factory. Come on i mean. If that's the case that's fucked boys of the world goes glue factory. These courses live better than the humans. Sure you're shooting for a and fucking just thinking. I was actually thinking. My mom started to wonder zero. Like there's like the fans Get criticized now a lot more like fan interaction. Yeah i was at wisconsin played penn state. I don't know what year was. Joe paternal rolled up on the sideline. And it's him off. Everyone including myself said shooting like horse. Read the yeah..

This probably isn't going to be it. Yeah that's we'll save that for like a wednesday during football season. Listen big sometimes you gotta you gotta let it out. You got some of the energy out. Yeah i'm letting it out. Really the point of hangovers is to remind you why you don't get hung over right. Why why getting some sleep awhile. And now they're showing messy crying on stage but a tough weekend that's tough. What was your who's back. No you're just watching tv. I was on. The goat is on tv crying at a press conference as a car. Co. won't fucking pay for him. I thought that was that clip from ted lasso. Roy was balling out while he's eating out his wife. That was from today happen. Contaminant that just started is our therapy. They're they're just dating y- a therapist. Ted lasso make you feel better. That's actually true though yes but also not true not true. These people are going to be continued to be depressed. Like dude ted last. Yeah that's right sure so. What's happening with ted lhasa. Right now is like what we saw happen with avatar when it came out when people got so obsessed with the visuals yeah and they got then they got people were super press that they weren't living in the appetite. Yeah so now. People are like oh shit to ted. Lasso doesn't really exist. Send that Jason is is actually coach to. Yes i do i i just going to say right now. I mean better. Help does sponsor this podcast so Don't use ted lasso as your only means of therapists if you're not okay That was our quick moment. Talking talking talking soccer in messy is that is fucked up. They wouldn't pay him half what fifty percent he wanted. So he's telling me like sixty mill. Who's running who wait ready for this. Who's run barcelona. Tom ricketts now. He's playing with imbaba neymar. It's a super team is going to be sick. Well we already was. Play with name are a few years. How sick would it be if there was a super league. And you got to. Cps key play against barcelona. Yes yes they should look into doing all right so back to usa basketball little detour there. usa basketball. I love the draymond just went. This is kevin durant and draymond green just dunking on people after the game and it was like. Oh why do you care so much. Just one gold knows awesome. It was awesome theater. He went kevin durant went. Live just laughing at everyone being like the world's taking over the game and you are skills are unmatched and then dream on dream. Went and just started quote tweeting. All the old tweets about how they had law like they were going to lose and france's taking over kendrick perkins and dream on got into a what was it. What do they get into. What was the were using a carry the hell on off carry the hell awning off to each other. Yeah i mean that's kendrick perkins favorite thing to say and just tossed in the word damn occasional care they damaged carry the hell on. You had kevin durant just seemed like he was going to take over the game. There's no answer to kevin durant it. Lsu you have to get started right now engineering player that would be able to defend kevin durant in eighteen years time. Maybe that french kid that we've seen clips of where he's like seven feet tall and he can dribble and shoot if kevin durant plays to the same age as like tom brady and stays around. Maybe that will be able to defend it but as of right now it's like no. There's nothing to do and that's the start of the game i was. I was like a little bit nervous first. Quarter because rudy gobert turns out is very good basketball dunking on people. Well and also the dumbest rule in all sports in international basketball. That you can steal the ball off the rent. I love that. So let actually. I don't three throws. I don't like the rule but i love it when draymond gets to do it because he looks like he's like on a little like a little vacation from the rulebook crazier looks like it's so illegal but when dream on does it you can tell how much fun he has his getting away with. Yes crazy. Dmk d- No i haven't should. I spent a good game. Feel like this. Yes i will hit him up. They you feeling good about you're right. You're right and good game. Good game little good game. Also shuttle lebron. Who went a perfect eleven for eleven from the field scoring twenty six points. Fourteen minutes vs uruguay. Oh eight second. Oh that's two thousand seven fiba tournament second round. Lebron just happened to quote. Treat that like twelve hours after the usa. One goal just to kind of muddy. The funniest thing. I that's what i was thinking when i was watching the gold medal match like win. Kevin durant put the gold medal around his neck. I was like you know. He'd trade that in a heartbeat to go eleven eleven scored twenty six points against uruguay in the second round. Fiba americas tournaments in two thousand seven the king. There's only one king actually. I think that that's like that's one of the greatest accomplishments in all of sports. Remember where were you know what we should do. We should make that like the tony. Delk graphic uh-huh except for lebron james with his stat line from that tournament. Yeah i'm gonna put that right now. I'm gonna say it. That's the second greatest thing that i've ever watched number one. Obviously being patrick mahomes incompletion in the super bowl the two greatest performances of i also appreciated this just like one of those things where you saw them on the bus afterwards..

"Thank you for that and welcome back to the show with you. Coast to coast and around the world on the american forces radio network. It's great to welcome back to the program kibo shea. He is the ceo and founder of access that is aka s. Why s and he's gonna tell us about fishing fighters the master of mizzou. Gummy akiba back to the show man. tell us a little bit more about what you got going on with this exciting title fight for having me back on the show Great to hear back from you Anyway yeah are Us title is called Fishing fighters the mess music as you just mentioned and obviously it's a fishing game And the park. There's a couple of things that set this apart from other fishing games One being there's a story mode so you're not just fishing but you're also playing along with the story Around the specific character named also the bigger feature that sets this apart is You can actually play up to eight players Four with one switch At one time. And then if you have if you have other people bring their own switches then you can pay up to eight players At on a local life by yes i should mention this is an exclusive on the nintendo. Each shop. Let's talk about that story. Ma because i think that's very interesting Tell us about the campaign if you like. Oh i'm not too familiar with it but What what part of the do you want to know. I don't wanna give away too much. Well i mean is it sort of like A baseball game where you start off in the minor leagues or is it something a little more adventurous from the get-go more adventurous You know it's really a story mode. It's something that Anybody can just jump in and just start playing So it's pretty pretty casual and yet it's got a little with the story when you talk about depth. That's something else that comes into it because you know. Any fisherman will no time of day water depth things like that. These are all factors in the game. Right correct right. I mean this is a fishing game as a little that leans towards the more realistic side. It's not cartooning. okay That with deep sea fishing is completely different than river fishing. And it's also different than you can go from lake fishing. So how do you guys adjust. Oh boy That's more of a question for the development team So i'm i'm not sure if i can really answer that question right now all right well. Anything else you wanna add. No well i mean it's like Like you said it's exclusively on the nintendo switch And unfortunately it's download only so you can only by digitally so. If you're if you're going to your local store you won't find it all right fishing fighters ready for everyone and it is available now on the nintendo e shop. The fishing fighters the master of mizukami. We have been speaking with akiba shave founder and ceo of access akiba. Thanks for coming on man. Thank you very much rick. All right i'm rick tittle okay. How about a about a sporting topic. Let's do that. Let's take a look at the rosters for the final twelve spots on team. Usa and remember steph curry Pulled out yes. And then we also heard of james harden saying ooh my elbow something to that effect but also medically bam outta bio first ever participation wearing the red white and blue. He tried to go to the world championships. Two years ago but got cut bradley. Beal has never made the olympic team although he has tried devon booker has never even participated in the olympics process. Kevin durant one of two players who are returning only two and he got a gold medal in london and then four years later got a gold medal in rio drama. Grant as we were talking about with robert and michigan. He has never competed at the senior level team. Usa but he was part of the under eighteen fiba americas championship squad which took home a gold. So now he's with the big boys draymond green Played in one olympics is He's the only other guy on the team and from last time in rio you have. Jrue holiday never competed in the olympics was part of the london games. As far as the camp was concerned and Did not make the team. And then was not part of the rio setup at all. zach levine. This is first ever international tournament and season for the bulls that blouse an all-star and deserving. I think the one player. I most excited to see. Is damian lillard He's never participated in the olympics. He's been cut twice so it's really cool that he's made the team and If you're in the bay area and from the east bay like myself. You have a little more affinity for lillard being guy who went to oakland high school as well as we were state. By the way. I drove past highway. Fifteen in utah. You basically start south of salt lake city. You got provo utah. Byu you get the salt lake city. It's the utah utes. Then you get to like augmenting. You're talking like we were stayed.
