And i didn't know what great men i just felt a deeper purpose that i needed to serve and i wanted to do these things in have retreats and help revive and donate people souls and have more online challenges. Essentially i wanted to ten x. Impact and i was putting on paper and journaling. What can you do. Because i was stuck. How do i do that. One fitness quest. Hannah's taking up eighty percent of my time. Yes i'm doing podcasting. I have my mastermind group of coaching but finished ten takes up eighty percent of my time and we had forty two teammates before the pandemic that went down to about twenty five teammates during the pandemic. But i knew. I needed to restructure my time my energy and even the organization. I i wanted to restructure. And i've thought back all the way to two thousand eighteen just after strong. Aired on. Net for an nbc. And then now on netflix. There was a deeper calling to impact the universe an imprint. My my footprint in people's hearts and souls but again i didn't know how from two thousand eighteen until now it was this soul-searching of i love fitness quest ten. We have an incredible community of of people. When you talk about. If you've ever been to this question you know the amazing souls. That are here.

"For him to come out and say oh yeah we. We covered this up. We cover this up and you know now. I think it's time that we you know aired out. And he really doesn't deserve the spotlight that he has I think it's just flat out crazy if anybody actually believes this report Which i don't think anybody realistically does But i also think it's extremely sad on the part that has to take a step away from hockey took us away from the organization to rangers. Probably when they need them the most i would say right now and And that he has genuine fear for his family because he still does have family back in russia. And i think that's a huge partner reason why he's taking a step back to get away from like the limelight so that way nothing else incited But yeah no. It's it's ridiculous and crazy. What's happening to them. So i feel ridiculous ad firm. I guess yeah So you know. The rangers came out in support of him but something that obviously they would but something crazier is at the k. Shell said that there was no. They were never made aware of any incident And they said that the league would have investigated it which is nuts that k. h. o. would come out and say you know and there was multiple teammates. I think there was like four or five teammates that came out and together together. They said it and even separate interviews. They've said that nothing of sorts has ever happened. There genuinely confused as to what it's about. Yeah which is. I think pretty. I don't know it's just fucked up. How i think it's a lie flat out You know they say they know all the facts. But i come on you. Can't you can't have one witness or the girl herself. Come out and say anything about like i get. It's very hard for victims to come out and talk but like for clown talk. It's the costa said. Well yes the coach like. There's no other substantial proof like there's no other coach. Bff's with putin. Yeah and he's he's made multiple hip pieces for putin before so it's very clear what this was a. It's a shame that is happening now and with no timetable for win. Panoramic come back.

"Employs want that. They want that trust. They want to know that their values and their input matters in a true way. Not just to sort of bureaucratic bladder of saying this. Show right you're telling us what we want here and to get what you want and people see right through that. Do you think that this would have been as successful as it has been thus far without the pandemic honestly no i think. The pandemic provided that launching points that had been a hurdle for a while because we had. We had a lot as he mates. Who have been asking for this for a long time. And like new zealand's Had experimented with in some way and there were like those japanese company. That did it. That was getting a lot of press than we do internally. Our teammates to sort of push is said to be proponents of like future of work initiatives. And so this was one that came up and we just didn't really feel like it could be successful And then our our view of what mattered perhaps her view of productivity changed with the pandemic because it impacted everyone's so globally and there have been times where you know maybe a global global team and distributed. We have about eighty-five teammates across fifteen countries. And so there might be times where like one country is experiencing something but it doesn't the rest of the team doesn't make me feel it in the same way in covid nineteen with such a universal thing that everyone is completely in the same situation To some fat to some extent in so that in greeley justed bit and said okay. Well now we have this latitude and now we have this big opportunity in this In this issue and so we really tried to look like what's a creative way that we can address it And make our team. You'll supported and make them feel heard and make sure that the are focusing on on the people and the human component of workplace such an interesting aspect on universal. It's always look little miss hopeful but You know. I like to find the the hopeful aspects and things in it is sort of something that did bring us together closer as a global community with our own unique challenges and all that sort of stuff i know you said you had management support from the top but just in our last few minutes. Can you give us a little a little insight into. How did the employees react and you. How did management react with regard to this. yeah I think severi honestly i think management was a little apprehensive because we are holding people to standards were hoping we're holding our advocate. Stir a certain response time and we wanna be you know held to those goals and so are managers or maybe a bit like how megan and make this work and how megan and make sure. This is still fair. Right getting stuff done and giving this time off Rt our team overwhelmingly was also very excited about it and our managers themselves were excited about it because they work afford a workweek. Do in so So there was some there is definitely some hesitation in and we are a company that likes to experiment in so we do frame everything that it might not be permanent. And so that's a helpful thing to to say like if isn't working then we will be honest about that and we will adjust it going forward so so keep that in mind. I think that's great. Well as we kind of wrap up because a run out of time today. Is there any sort of insight. Serve food for thought that you can give to our listeners. You might be wanting to suggest this to their companies or people who are decision makers and companies you might want to present it to their organization. Yeah i think there's a lot of ways that you can Encourage this or sell it from a very practical standpoint There's a lot of research out there around how time doesn't necessarily output Obviously this depends on the work. You're in but especially for Knowledge workers Where creativity and brain capacity is is fairly limited. That there's a lot of data to support this. And i also encourage like try it for a couple of weeks or try to adjust something. Small in in 'em institute a half day off or a meeting free day even and just see what that feels like. There's always you can maybe test the waters without rolling it out on a wide bubble or whatever that looks like so i always just try something and try something small and and build that trust and build up that track record of it being impactful.

Now you want to say Tom Brady is in a position of leadership and shouldn't be doing this that it's sending the wrong message to his peers. It's sending the wrong message is one of being a face or a brand of National Football League. I could understand that I look at football players with role models. I'll roll.

It does not bother me as much about Brady practicing with his team mates as much a zit fathers you and I understand it's not just picking on him. It's a message from the Playersassociation. There are other players. They're doing it, but It doesn't bother me that Russell Wilson is doing. You know that Sam Darnold is doing. It would stay calm Barkley and other jets and Giants players on a practice field, whether wherever that was in the tri State area, or that you know, Stafford and Wilson and other football players that that that doesn't bother me, I expect guys That are even if the even if the information even if the advice is don't do it.

"What do you think he did that sit on his couch or just running laps around his house. I mean, you know they do You think that James Harden hasn't picked up a basketball and play pick up basketball and playing games in the last 3.5 months. We talked about the The rumors that were kind of solidified by J. J. Reddick and T. M Z about LeBron and his teammates in the Hollywood Hills during the pandemic playing pickup basketball games. I mean, you know, and that's just the MBA. I mean, you can. You can go up and down the line when it when you look at each and every athlete on when I look way I look at the NFL. It doesn't bother me and just because the Playersassociation there's also people had view this pandemic completely different than other people, whether that's right or wrong. Kelly and Tom Brady is obviously one that's looking at it to where he's saying to himself. You know what? I'm not putting my I don't feel like I am putting myself and end the unnecessary risk by going out there and practicing with my new teammates, and I don't I guess I'm not already doesn't have doesn't have these two very important Letters that come before his name Dr D R period. He's not one. He's a football put here put Tom Social telling you to do some wave. Our second puts up for type reviewed all of the rule, but Tom Brady, Tom Brady doesn't feel like he is doing any any disservice to himself. He feels like he's responsibly. Handling himself and his teammates feel like they're being responsible in practicing with him. I don't I don't see any kind of issue with that. I wouldn't see any issue with Stafford with Russell Wilson for any quarterback out there or any player out there. Two decided to go out and practice and participate with teammates. Regardless of what the players association is saying, I've seen more. I've seen people go out there and be irresponsible and a lot of different ways in life. And you know, they don't get called out for it because we all know Tom Brady. We know he was at a park in Tampa. He got called out to you because it's Tom Brady. We know way And when the parks were closed, he got called out for that. We know that he's a monster star across American across the world. So whatever Tom Brady does now is going to grant headlines across America. Let me ask you You think this is generating headlines? If Dwayne Haskins or Daniel Jones? I saw a video of Sam Darnold practicing with sequel Barclay is with everyone going out to the high heavens and and calling out sick while Barclay Sam Darnold for practicing together, no boast. This is not cherry picking Tom Brady. I'm not saying that I'm saying is This was saying that what may have been okay a few weeks ago and what doctors may have said Listen with all your flattened the curve, and and we're getting to a place where maybe this thing Waas a little bit more. I don't say under control because I don't even know if I would not be is presumptuous. Never say that because I'm also not a doctor, but What's happening now and especially in Florida, where the cases are rising. And where now? Not a couple weeks ago. But now DeMora Smith and the NFLPA medical director are asking players to do this. So I'm not cherry picking Brady and just saying you bad shave on Utah Brady. No, no, no. I'm saying things have changed now, and they're changing. Specifically where Brady is living and working out, so I don't like those circumstances. They're being asked not to do these workouts, and Brady is saying double birds to you like I don't get why that's okay well because he feels like he is handling himself. Just because the play association tells him to do something doesn't necessarily mean he has to go out there and do it doesn't true. That's true. However, I think that that's That's one of the things here, right? Which is while Brady may himself believe that he's being responsible, the act off gathering to share a football to do whatever they're doing. Just may not be able to be responsible at this point. It's not that Brady's doing anything. It's just that this this activity they not be It may not be possible to do this without you, but I I don't. I don't know. I don't know that I've heard a lot of decisions. I have heard a lot of different information about whether Cove in 19 survives on surfaces or not. So I have no idea if you're throwing the same football around is does that mean that the virus is going to be president? That football? There's somebody that's A symptomatic that is practicing with Tom Brady. I I don't know. I can't tell you that Answer. I'm not. I'm not 100% sure about that. But you know if Tom Brady was in New York, right now, where the numbers obviously starkly different in New York, as compared to say, Florida would he be getting the push back that he is right now? It would be, you know. And I get I get not giving him the pushback is because you have a medical director who's saying Please don't do this. We'd recommend you don't do this, And instead, Brady is not just not saying all right, I'll take your advice into consideration. He's saying I'm gonna do it. Yeah. Yeah, He's looking at a completely different just because I'm and I and I understand that but we've had We've had a number of large gatherings across our country.

The Harlem Globetrotters

"The Savoie ballroom was a jewel of jazz age. Chicago theatre opened in the nineteen twenties just before people in the United States were hit by the Great Depression which left many Americans poor and hungry throughout the difficult time. The Savoie was a place to find joy on the south side of Chicago. The building was regularly filled with residents from the largely African American neighborhood. Who gathered to dance to some of the biggest stars of the day count basie Duke Ellington Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong? Were just a few of the people who banged out. Tunes as people jibed across the giant DANCEFLOOR. Dancefloor was so big that it actually doubled as a basketball court for the Savoy. Big Five in the late. Nineteen twenty s the five-man team hosted games to fill the slow nights in the ballroom. A young man in cab. Calloway would sometimes seeing during halftime but back then basketball wasn't very popular people cared about contests like horse racing and boxing baseball. Not The five on five game that depended on getting a ball through a hoop. It was a long way from the sport. We know much slower and much lower scoring than today. This team from Chicago would eventually work to change that. But they're Savoie audience could never have guessed how at some point. There was a dispute among the players of the Savoie five and they broke up. Three of them led by Tommy. Brooklyn's start a new team and rename themselves. The globetrotters it was an era of barnstorming. And when not at the Savoy they set out from Chicago to tour the Mid West region of America there were no organized leagues of teams and players in the Nineteen Twenties and thirties. Instead semi professional teams would travel from town to town and earn money playing teams from whatever town they were in sometimes. Businesses might have a team of employees so a barnstorming team like the globetrotters might play against some guys who had spent the whole day assembling cars canning vegetables or even driving taxi caps. Other Times barnstorming might play a team made up of members of a religious group. The House of David. Those guys never shaved so they played basketball with beards down to their bellies. Making James Harden's beard look like a five o'clock shadow soon. A young Jewish immigrant named Abe Sapper. Steam entered the picture with the globetrotters. Abe was a terrible basketball player but his other skills were valuable. He knew a lot of people who did bookings and many of these towns and more importantly he had a car these five teammates and their manager. Abe would pile into his model t like sardines attend camp and hit those cold slick winter roads. It was the nineteen twenties and they understood that random people in random midwest towns might be surprised to find that all five members of the team coming to play their local guys were African Americans. There were very few professional sports comprised of African Americans at this point so they decided to alter their name to help people know what to expect at the time. The most notable and best all black basketball team was known as the Harlem rent which was short for the Harlem Renaissance in the Nineteen Twenties and early thirties. The New York neighborhood of Harlem was an epicenter of black culture and it was a time referred to as the Harlem Renaissance. People knew about these incredible artists and musicians. Who lived there along with the writers like Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston so the globetrotters who were very much from Chicago? Ask themselves how do we make ourselves sound dignified worldly and clearly a team of African Americans the Harlem Globetrotters? Will it matter that? We're not from Harlem that we've never tried it around the globe new super nope cool. Let's pile into a small unheeded car and go beat some people in basketball and they did just that it was remarkable. How good they are. They beat nearly every team from Wisconsin. Illinois Iowa anywhere else they went then they pile back into the car and head on down the road to the next game throughout the nineteen thirties. The team built up quite a reputation. They might have been the best basketball team in the world. No one agrees on how the famous tricks came into the game. A popular explanation is that they'd slip into the fun and flashy dribbles and drives after they safely put plenty of points on the board against their opponent. This did several things one it entertain the audience. Once the actual threat of competition was gone. No one wants to watch a blowout so a fun. Show of tricks kept the locals entertained but also no one wants to watch their local fellas get trounced a group from the city coming in and wiping the home team can really anger a local audience and the Harlem globetrotters new. This trick plays would thrill any crowd and win them over. The focus slowly became not about the final score but about how much fun it was to watch these incredible athletes and their astonishing an often humorous approach to the game. I we win. And then we cloud Abe Saperstein once said now most people agree that the real clowning didn't start until a man named goose. Tatum joined the team. Goose was an incredible athlete. Who could put the basket ball through the hoop with ease? But he also had a keen eye for comedy he found inspiration and funny movies and carefully watched the acts of clowns and other entertainers his favorite gags would show up on the basketball court. Sometimes goose would tiptoe over and pretend to spy on the opposing team's huddle all while making sure the audience in on the joke other times he'd hand the refs at trick ball after a timeout upon dribbling the ball. The referee grow angry because the ball never bounced back up. It just plopped devoid of air on the ground. Sometimes goose would disappear from the court altogether while the game continued only to be found in the audience eating popcorn. He even had a bit where he would pretend to be knocked unconscious on the court. The refs in his teammates would try everything to wake him up. But no amount of shaking or poking prodding would open his eyes. It was only the smell of his own Stinky Shoe. That would get him back up on his feet again. Much to the disgust delight of the audience in Nineteen forty-eight Abe Sapper Stein was with a friend who just so happened to own a basketball team called the Minnesota Lakers. The Lakers were the best team in the brand new professional basketball league which would soon become known as the NBA. The League did not allow black players on any of their teams regardless of League affiliation and regardless of the color of the player skin each man believed his team was the best in the world. They'd never meet in a league as it was so the natural solution was to stage an exhibition game between the Lakers and the globetrotters. It didn't seem so to the men at the time but game between an all white. Nba team and an all. Black semi pro team would prove monumental. Eighteen thousand people came out to watch which was easily twice. As many people as most professional basketball games would attract the time. And despite the fact that the Lakers star center who stood six speed and ten inches tall was seven inches taller than anyone else. On the court. The globetrotters one on a last second shot. It was a powerful moment. The next season those Lakers would go on to win the National Championship. But when they played the Harlem globetrotters a second time for a second exhibition between the two teams. The globetrotters came out on top yet again. The following year the NBA ended segregation and three of those same Laker Whooping Harlem globetrotters Chuck Cooper Nat Clifton and hang designee. Became three of the I four African Americans to join the League and play professional basketball. This was nineteen fifty three years. After Jackie Robinson had broken the color barrier in baseball the globetrotters still continue their entertaining shows today. Keeping the spirit of barnstorming alive. They get a lot of credit for how they support communities and bring joy to so many and educate kids about health. But it's easy to forget about how important they were in integrating professional basketball. They now tour and play with just one team often known as the Washington generals according to most sources the globetrotters have beaten the generals over sixteen thousand times. How many times have they lost though? That question is harder to answer. But it's just a few. The most recent globetrotter loss was way back in one thousand nine hundred seventy one when both teams lost track of the score when clock expired. The generals were ahead. That was not supposed to happen. And people expected the GLOBETROTTERS TO WIN. And it's usually agreed that they will today. It's all about the show the fun and the love of basketball not the competition. This is what made that loss. So shocking reports from nine hundred. Seventy one SE. The stands were filled with silent shocked faces and even a few crying children. Luckily it's been smiles for all since then

"Its fits within your methodology but that's how we've designed fitness quest ten Julia. My question was more about like the culture in keeping people through the grind. So how do you keep people on the grind through adversity city whether it be like team or business or working with professional athletes that kind of expand. I'm not sure I follow you so you're asking. How do you keep the people grinding if they're facing adversity yeah so every time like whenever I'm in the gym everyone is always on the grind. They're they're working their butts off in here in this amazing to see and it is just a community of pushing each other and helping each other recycles. She's like if there's something going going on like maybe outside the gym like how do you keep people pushing through that. You have any specific examples Julia uncut if I relate it to like. I'm going through like as a college athlete like maybe there's an injury on a team or maybe there's a the team just isn't getting along or maybe CBS just an off day or or even like in a game like something's happens like maybe you're starting player is down. <hes> you really just have to figure out how to get got through that lake. But what would you say that yeah a couple of things first off we all know anyone listening and whenever you've been hurt injured whether it's acute injury through sport you have a chronic injury. You've got a knee issue back. Issue Pain is interesting when you look at pain because pain messes with you mentally. It's a mental thing many any time you can put up when I had my knee issues. I put up with pain for years and I could do it. The hardest part wasn't the physical pain. It was the mental pain of. I don't feel like I should or the energy. GS depleting its fatiguing on that when you're a student when you're a high school student college athletes even a pro athlete. The hardest part is when you feel ostracized from the team. So how do you keep someone who's injured whether it's a two four week injury it's a several month injury or to an ACL. You're sitting out for nine months twelve months. Whatever may be how do you keep that person in the game. Mentally that's a hard thing to do and I think it's important as a coach as a trainer to make sure that you make sure those people still feel part of the team because they will not doc feel part of the team because they're in Rehab there with the or there with a physical therapist they're doing the Rehab and there are steps removed on that if you're grinding on the team and there's some drama uh or there's some other things going on. I think it's important that as a coach as an athlete all of us in this room are leaders at fitness quest hand. Would I'd say with forty two teammates. There's bound to be a few of my teams that have stuff going on outside of your personally whether the families themselves whatever may be as listen when you you show up and it's time to go you gotta go. You gotta find a way you gotTA. Snap Your van literally snappy ban you gotta get your mind right and you gotta go. Sometimes you do your best work when you're facing adversity. Sometimes when you're backed up against the wall you like you dig down and you start to get a little red. You get to get the little grind on that. You know that but that is because you're listening to podcasts podcast like this. That's because you you you dial in your best practice. I'm not going to submit to eating garbage all the time because I feel like garbage. That's hard that's disciplined. The Best of the best have the ability to go train when they don't feel like it if you're going through a tough time go out there and start doing delasin squat. I tell you the other day and you were killing it <hes> on that. That's how you continue to get your mind right and your teammates see you. They see you working on that if you're in high school if you're in college you're you're a weekend warrior. Remember this find people who you want to train with that are gonNA lift you up and you live them up. Five teammates find workout training mates that you can work out with who you're. GonNa get the best of the best out of you push. You're GonNa have fun on your smartphone. You have high fives and that's because all of a sudden all the endorphins get I call dose get little dose. Now does it but it does dopamine oxytocin oxytocin. Listen Serotonin and endorphins when you work out you get a dose on that. That's a hormonal chemical response that happens in your brain so when you say when I'm always get your mind right. Get your mind right. Get your mind. It is interesting as saying that you get your mind right. It's when you're physically yourself to be the best that you can. You're training hard. You're eating right. There's a chemical reaction that get your mind right so if someone is struggling struggling with depression anxiety stress all right. Let's go for a walk. Let's go out there and start with the buy low but you have to kill yourself and all of a sudden chemical start getting released and you start feeling better. That's why every day every single day and sixty five days a year. We're giving ourselves our own keynote every day on that so for the question. Julia I know it's a long winded answer answer on that is just gotta you gotTa keep the Grit you've got to keep the grind and and <hes> if someone a teammates going through adversity voice of encouragement lifting them up not pushing pushing down pull up never pushing down pulling up pull up up too many times especially the you know the young young kids. Even young teens are constantly pushing people down. How could you be the vehicle of change to help poor people. Yes good question good question. Chevy so I have a question more so about you and your success <hes> first of all. Do you realize how many people love you and I wouldn't necessarily want to say the word famous because sometimes famous people they get out of touch with just everyday people. I saw you at idea a couple of months ago and I was like Whoa oh like people were pushing to get inside the room and I was like wow like todd darkness somebody so to see that from me not knowing who you were and so my question to you is because your ICU so humble every day and then you get on that station you just like the whole room on fire. Do you realize that you have that first of all and while I'm talking to you and I just glass behind you and I see your Bible and that to me already is like it's amazing as A. I'm trying to get emotional. It's amazing as a I would say just the everyday person succumb in and see somebody who's so successful but then to see your foundation right behind you because I have worked with admirals. I have worked. I'm a retired Navy. Maybe veteran so I have been in office of some quote unquote bigwigs. I haven't seen Bible sitting out a Lotta Times tucked in a drawer somewhere but just while while I'm asking this question my eyes glaze over the first thing I see I just WanNa know. If you realize how much of impact you're making and how does it fills you in your heart. Oh that's a big one. When I slow down enough breath sometimes I do yes. I don't slow down enough. I think I love when I meet people that don't know me <hes> and they're like I've never seen you never met you. Don't know who you are. I love that I actually like that and and <hes> realize that my mission nation on earth is to simply motivate and inspire people to greatness. That's what makes me work. That's what makes me tick my divine bovine purpose. You talk about the by a man of faith. <hes> you say success but I say success is what you deem use it. I'm successful. I don't look at myself as successful. I don't strive for quote success. I strive for significance. My significance is based on on my divine purpose so what is God have in store for me and my living up being obedient to that. Would I realize if I'm listening to what he's telling me to do. As I make decisions should expand my business if he saying no and I listened and tap into that than the answer is no if he's saying yes I'm like. I don't know how I'm GonNa do that. I realized he will provide the answers for me to do that. So for me is I've always been in tune with that faith aspect and obviously there's times when I'm really good would end the time when I'm not spending my daily devotional time which I so wholeheartedly attempt to do every day on that so when I'm up on stage lights me up and I always ask an I'd ask you guys is find out what your gifts are know what lights you up and do more of it so I know that writing and speaking and presenting lights me up it fires my soul up when you find things that you're passionate about in the love love to do and you do more of it you discover that gift and when you discover that gift and that is your purpose at that becomes like men. This is why I love to do and that so so I'm always appreciative when I go to an idea or to a conference or to a keynote and people have heard the podcast so they've seen a youtube. I saw a youtube in two thousand to nine of them and I'm like well. That's a long time but there's also people they've never met me and to me it's all about human connection and helping people discover that purpose purpose of what they want in life and and how you become better most people want to become better and most people wanna do that the reason that Bible sitting there is because there's many times during during a work day. I just need it. Oh yeah I I don't need a lunch break I need. I need a little forever AK before big needing. You'll and you take a big podcast before for any. I'll pray and I'll just I'll ask guidance and wisdom and if I can slow it down enough to realize what's most important. It's not about what other people deem team me successful not successful because again successful is fleeting. There'll be a day when no one wants a pitcher with me or sign a book or whatever so I realize I I try. Try To revel in that so chevy. Thanks for the question which you got big. Mike questions a little more business related K. so one one of the most major things I noticed about fitness. Quest ten is how diverse clientele is you have old and young people who've never been in the gym before and people who show up every day high school athletes college athletes professional athletes so what <hes> my question is. What do you think are few aspects of either the staff or the community of fitness quest ten in general that allow for this to exist..

"Stay tuned for sixty seconds of eight me news headlines, right after this podcast. All right. So, you know, he asked a question I know you ask a question in, in this business of somebody where. You know the answer. And I obviously when you ask. See web about who should be the next coach Michigan. And his fab five teammate is one of the candidates, you know what the answer is going to be. But I just left it out there. He just went on a four minute long soliloquy. Pounding the table for John and it wasn't just like he's my buddy. He just knows what he would bring to the table as head coach of the wolverines the. Search firm that Michigan hired and you know how I feel about search firms it's like look you know who's out there, you know who's available. Why do you need to search for him to tell you? This is a good match for you. You know what to good match of certainly ward manual the athletic director there. He's heard how Chris said that, that, that he, he knew sham Boeckler ward manual was one of Bo's guys. Okay. So he knows he knows exactly what Michigan is, and what it needs.

"Good afternoon. I'm Pat Thurston. This issue that I am going to bring up right now is distasteful. And I'm warning you of that because it is distasteful, and I am going to try to a position it. I mean after I introduce to you and tell you the reality there's no getting around how gross the reality is. But then I think there are solutions. And I think that together we may be able to come up with viable solutions that seem to be unreachable to some of the people here in the city of San Francisco in particular now talking about San Francisco right now, I am hoping beyond hope that San Jose and other major cities Oakland cities in the bay area. I am hoping that you do not have the same issue that San Francisco has you know, San Francisco is such a glorious city beautiful city. It has been called the most beautiful city in the world on many occasions in boy, it does have some absolutely incredible sight this. Of course is the city were Tony Bennett left, his heart. Where we both the Golden Gate Bridge Golden Gate park. Fisherman's Warf the Steinhardt aquarium Lombard street, the de young museum, just it's just so amazing, countless other amazing and wonderful sites. And now the city of San Francisco is becoming known for something else. And we've known about this. I've talked about this before on the air. Although I don't think we reached any sort of solutions when when I talked about obviously, not because it's still ongoing. But now Forbes magazine is publishing a piece on this. Forbes magazine. This is an issue and the issue is human waste o- over our straits. It is fish oil. You know for a long time. We've talked about this dirty not so little secret of poop, laying in full view of the public. And I'm not talking about the stuff that comes from dogs in our dog friendly city where people carry bags to pick up behind their pooches. I'm not talking about horsedrawn carriages like in in New York City. I'm sure that in central park they must have to contend with what comes from the horses. But no, this is coming from people and we've seen it. And then a lot of people have had to call the San Francisco Chronicle refers to as the poop patrol to clean it up. We have a mayor who campaigned on cleaning it up. But now it's being featured reported in Forbes magazine. Along with an interactive map. I am so embarrassed for our city, and I truly am disgusted that this issue exists, and that we have not been able to find a fix for it. And I am wondering why in the name of Hannah, we don't have public restroom facilities all over this city all over this city, and once that are open twenty four seven to every single member of the public. There's an interactive map as a matter of fact Caroline, did you get the map posted Carolyn? Can you hear me did you post them up on our website? Okay. So they're getting the map posted on our websites and interactive map and on this map, which is based on reported sightings. When people see something they call it in. And then this group of people go out, and they have to clean it up. But these are the ones that are reported. I mean have have you seen it on the streets of San Francisco in did you report it I've seen it? And I did not. So while there are all of these reported sightings, you have to know that there's even more than this. And it is it's pretty awful. Now, they do show you on the map, which neighborhoods are the worst. And how much the problem has worsened, for example in two thousand eleven there were five thousand five hundred and forty seven reported. Pyle's last year. They were twenty eight thousand eighty four and what Forbes says is the city has taken steps to crackdown on the crisis over the last year. The department of public works instituted the poop patrol consisting of five teammates. The chronicle has estimated that each employee earned a hundred and eighty four thousand dollars in pay perquisites and pension benefits. Five people. Using the payroll information Forbes quantified the taxpayer cost of each human waste case last year to thirty two points, thirty two dollars and seventy five cents. So every time this is on the streets at cost thirty two dollars and seventy five cents for the human labor. That does not include the cost in trucks fuel and equipment such as the steam cleaning unit in this city. There were one hundred eighteen neighborhoods affected. Seventy two percent of all cases since two thousand eight were reported in just ten neighborhoods. The tenderloin had the most then south of market mission Civic Center Civic Center, mission Dolores, lower Nob hill, portray row hill, showplace square, north beach and the financial district. You know for a city as reliant as ours is on tourism and enticing businesses. This is a crisis. I mean, it's not just awful. So it's just disgusting. It's not just a real failure. In managing a city. But it also I just can't be allowed to continue because it's going to affect us financially. It probably already has of course, the patrol the people who are doing the cleanup that needs to continue. I think maybe we need a better name for it. It it kind of every time. You say those words it makes you kind of sick to think about it. Maybe we can call it that hazardous waste disposal or I don't know what we're gonna call it. Maybe you can come up with something. But okay. But here here's what I think is the problem. I guess the problem is, you know, people who are doing this who are the people, and what can be done to prevent this from continuing. You're not going to be able to prevent all of it. You just not not in a city with the population the size of San Francisco, and frankly with a homeless population the size that we have in San Francisco. This is another issue that is tied to homelessness. But it's not just people who are homeless. We are doing this. You know, I thought maybe, you know, people who really have to go that you know, they would potty that she would hold the other part. I didn't think that normal people would just do it on the streets. But apparently they are. So it seems to me that the largest component here is because there's no place for people to go. And you know, if you gotta go you gotta go. So what do you do if you have to go, and there's no place around and you go into a business, but you're not patronizing the businesses, and they've gotta do not oh out of order sign on the restroom door because they wanna keep everybody out of there. Unless they're actually a client of theirs. What do you do we need to have public restrooms? And we need a lot of them in San Francisco there should be it should be as prolific as a Starbucks. You know, you can find a Starbucks anywhere. You want you can find them sometimes catty corner to one of them to on the same street corner. You can find them catty corner to each other. That's the way public restrooms should be you shouldn't even have to cross the street. There should be a restroom that you can utilize at any point in time. Whether you're a drug user or a homeless person or a Hooker who wants to turn a trick. I don't really care. I don't care if that's how you're using the facilities. If you do it, and you get out so somebody who really has to go can. And what we have found is it in San Francisco. We have a purchase these really fancy French variety in looked it up how much to the fancy toilets cost and we've only put up a handful of them. We've hardly put up any. I've seen too in the city of San Francisco. Do you know how much those costs three hundred twenty six thousand dollars? Three hundred twenty six thousand dollars how about instead of doing that we just get a whole bunch of basic restroom facilities. Now, one kind you could get is the kind Chubu see that. I saw when I was a kid in every public park in the bay area. They were built at a cinderblock they had metal interiors, including the toilets, and the sink, so it made cleanup easier or you know, what would be even better composting toilets. If you haven't heard of compost composting toilets. They're becoming more prolific. There's a lot of them. Now that are cropping up. They're using them in many, many, many, wilderness areas in national parks and state parks. You will see these areas where you know, you gotta go. You gotta go. It's open to everybody, and it's not a flush toilet. You don't have to waste water. It's more environmentally sound. And they're all across the country. They're using these things they're really quite wonderful. They're not stinky, they have a fan that keeps the stink down and the fan is operated by a photo. What do you call photovoltaic cell? So it's powered by the sun, and it's a battery operated small fan. So that there's absolutely no stink. But what it does is? It goes into a receptacle no water to flush it it goes into a receptacle. And then it's mixed with other things which creates compost, which can then be used in order, grow things everywhere. I mean, this seems like such terrific idea. I did a quick search in the Google and found a study from twenty sixteen where the cost of a double stall. So you could have two stalls in one is forty six thousand dollars for the whole thing. The single stall is in the twenties twenty thousand something. Dollars surely with the volume of units that San Francisco would purchase we could get that cost down. And, you know, even if you wanted to put something more fancy around it, which I don't think you should have to do to public toilet. You know, it's not something that needs to be architecturally gorgeous. If you're going to do that use the cinderblocks, it seems like you could get eight or ten of these composting toilet things for the cost of one of those fancy dancy French versions, and then San Francisco can have bragging rights about using such a great technology such an environmentally, responsible technology. Do you still need? He'd be need people who are responsible for cleaning the facilities for monitors in the area. You'd have to give them portable steam cleaning units to make sure that everything is properly sanitized, you'd replenish supplies, soap and paper you'd have to do it every single day. And where would you put him? We've got a map you go to that interactive map. That's on our Facebook page, or is it our website. I think it's on the Facebook page Facebook dot com slash K. G O, you go there and. They've got all these Brown. Dots you have to enlarge the map because otherwise it's just one big Brown area, you have to enlarge it just click on the plus sign, and it'll get bigger and bigger and bigger, and you can see and you can see where most of the offense is taking place so start there put them there. You know, where the problem is the worst though, that's where you begin to handle it. How hard can it be to take a world class city and to provide simple toiling facilities because right now we are at risk as being no not as a world class city. But as a world-class toilet..

"But you know, he's said he's playing me. He was just in his own head in the moment. I was standing at the edge of the court when he came off the court only last minute of the game he got up he high fives. Teammates, he walked off the court with his teammates as a unit. And so I I think it's a little overblown here in even we showed that shot from Indiana. He's in that shot at Indiana. He is sitting in court side seat, not on the bench. And so why won't we talking about him? Then I mean, so I wasn't watching that game. On the phone everybody. Everyone's talking about the pro here's the when you're a leader. I think regime Rondo is a leader wants to be a leader. You have to be concerned about perception. And how it's going to look to your teammates and to fans and things like that. So I understand he's only in his own head. I'm not saying you have to make big deal about it and suspend guy, but he has to be aware as a leader. How that looks that's part of his job. And you can't just go sit away from your teammate. They're not gonna find them. I watched him pre-game the other night on the court throwing baseball south passes to his teammates fastballs. And then javale McGee sitting up as a catcher and Casey piece any umpire. I mean, he's still doing stuff like that. And we're not talking about that. Like, it's some amazing things. There has to be some. I guess we did agree with that. And like I said, I think he's a leader. I think he's taken on that mantle. But that means all the time, unfortunately. And so I don't look I'm not saying he should be suspended. I'm not even saying he should be fine. The fact that they met with them. I think is good. But you can't just let it go. The thing. I'll add onto Dave is kind of what we talked about Taj Gibson in that. Foulds was reckless militias. Maybe not. But it's not a good. Look. He knows the context of what this team is going to right now. He knows what the context is. So even doing that back in February is not as agreed as doing it right now. When literally everything is what he did. After the game. He went home broke down two hours of film and gave tips cruise. What he did? What matters. What actually this? It's not the war like he can do both. Me mad at us watching. But if the other guys on the bench don't care about why should we care because then they got to deal with the questions. Even if it does matter guy, we'll wait a minute. But it's even if it does matter to the guys on the team, they're so young. They're not going to say anything to him. So the line will be oh, it doesn't matter to them. I don't think you know, that one way or another. I honestly don't and look, I don't I'm with you. We shouldn't be blowing it up into something bigger than it is. But it does matter that's all lay down on the court when you wanna be somebody as a letter. Dennis rodman. We're talking about it because they've lost fifteen nineteen, but that's important and semi to. But. But that's important. And I think a mean brings up a good point there. Yeah. If you're seventy two and ten it doesn't matter at this point does because it's going bad. And that's where all these things matter and this team needs to come together. More they've been through a lot it matters. Yeah. Just making him the flash point of what's wrong. Oh, no. No, no. I am not doing that. Just going to say that the odds of Dennis Rodman reference on today's show. We're very low. So thank you. Absolutely. Thank you for joining us today. We will see you over the weekend. Huge ABC game on Saturday and coming up, Stu. Turn radius. Is it just gonna play a game or something? Nothing. Everything helping of a deal was Gordon Hayward game winner last night.

"Howard beck. Follow him on Twitter at Howard Beck. Joining us here in the Fitz and Brooks show, courtesy of the guest line. What can you not do? Howard. Hit a free throw with you know, you know, game on the line. I guess probably. There's a whole list of things. Hey, man, nature long. We know you're a busy, dude. Thank you for your time. We appreciate it. How you doing? I'm doing well. How about you? We're doing fine doing fine. Obviously an NBA chat round these parts, especially starts with the warriors. What do you think of the warriors current state right now coming off of of that loss to Boston looking forward to starting with Denver a stretch games against high-caliber competition? The DeMarcus cousins integration is is head. It's fits and starts. Just how do you see the warriors now and going forward? I mean, look you gotta throw the caveats on their of not having clays for a couple of games in Charleston being out in those guys looks like they're getting healthy. And then so, you know, that's. That's not to excuse any of it. And it's not to say that to downplay any of it, but all of that being taken into account. They just feel a little more fragile than they've probably ever felt that this time of the season since this run began, and you know, that that may resolve itself, the focus of the postseason may get certain guys out of there, folks, whether mental or otherwise, and you know, they are they still are who they are. I you know, there's when healthy they're still the odds on favorite to go to the finals. But the cousins integration has been mixed at best the integration or reintroduction of Andrew bogut will be interesting providing its own me mini subplot and how that affects the big man rotation or unless he's simply a break glass in case of emergency options. And you know, they're still just the looming. Weirdness of Durant's future. And you know, his response after the game the other night. I mean, look nobody is probably in a great mood after the loss the other night, but he just seemed remarkably edgy and needlessly defensive or just weird in his response to Takao economies. Question seem kind of performance Ridley tone deaf to the warriors sixteenth in defensive rating at a buck. Oh, nine and a half, so mid mid pack. How much better do you think just using this metric of defensive rating how much better do you think? How would the warriors can get defensively over the rest of the regular season? And the playoffs. I'm much better. Do you think they can get? And if they don't get appreciably better. Do you think the warriors can win a championship? Normally, I would say that who you are by this point in the season is probably who you're going to be in the postseason. But it's interesting LeBron of all people kind of made us reassess that and I'm not saying that every team can do this and the idea of flipping switches always dangerous and usually fallacious most the time it can't be done. You don't go from being the lousy or middling defensive teams all of a sudden great in the playoffs. But the Cavs. Did it a couple of times and the warriors have the muscle memory to do it? And they've got the personnel to do it. So they can be better. Unfortunately, right now, it's the usage or high use of of DeMarcus cousins that is dragging the defense down. It's making them that much more vulnerable at that side. And I got to believe that that's playing at least some part in this decision to bring in Bogot. And you know, they're gonna have to reassess what they can withstand and what the trade offs are forget. Getting cousins offensive punch out there and his size and his versatility versus the deficit. It's it's creating for them. At the other end. And you know, that might be a really hard call that Steve Kerr has to make as they hit into the postseason, but they may have to jail him for their own benefit. And you know that that bears watching. Yeah, they they ended up finishing seven and ten in their last seventeen games last year and then morphed into the number one defensive team in the postseason. So like you said muscle memory. They they did it a year ago. It's a little different with Marcus. But they also sat and shelved Pachulia and or jail and or David west and various series based on the opponent. So I think Steve love have no problem mixing and matching looney Jordan bell bogut, DeMarcus depending on who they're playing announcing DeMarcus plan a huge amount against the rockets. Just like western chevelle Pachulia didn't play against them really at all last year. Where do you look at the Eastern Conference in that everyone wants to get sexy with Philly and Boston and this and that? And even Toronto. But oh, by the way, Milwaukee spend the best team in the league all year, they get little to no love and yet defensively and all their different shooters and buttonholes are being a great coach where where are you on the box? Well, look, they're legit. I mean, that's that's not even a question there. Absolutely legit. They just don't look like the prototype of what we're used to seeing in today's NBA in terms of contenders were used to seeing what team with two three or in the case of the warriors four stars. And you know, look at some of those week Cavs teams notwithstanding and times LeBron had to drag sub-standard crew to the finals. He's still had you'll Kyrie and Kevin love at at points or one or the other depending on on you know, which year in which series. We're talking about the idea of the Milwaukee Bucks going to the finals with just Jaanus all due respect to Chris Middleton, all due respect. Eric bledsoe. You guys who are you know, all star. Ish. There. They don't have that other guy who's really at that high level. This is not the old Miami Heat's teams with LeBron Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. This is not the warriors. This is not the the Celtics Pierce Garnett. They're just different. And so I think people are having a hard time grasping the idea that they can be elite in in a finals contender a championship contender with this different approach. And I think frankly, warriors fans are not going to like this particular take of mind, but for the health of the league, it's really good for the bucks to show that there's another way with you need alternative ways to the title or to title contention. There has to be an antidote to the super team era. Otherwise, if you're not one of the handful of teams with a bunch of stars on it, you're you're already hopeless from the get-go. And so I I like the bucks being able to contend at this level with this kind of roster because you need somebody to kind of lead the way to to a different model and they're doing it in. They're legit. They may they still may not make it by the way. I mean, Toronto's really good, Billy. If they have their chemistry right at the right times Boston with their chemistry. Same kind of deal. They've got the talent. I mean, it could still be any of those four. So we are talking to Howard Beck senior NBA writer for Bleacher report is full forty eight podcast. If you are a hoop head it is must-listen. Our joins us here on the Fitz and Brooks show, follow him on Twitter at Howard Beck. So obviously we are anticipating some player movement this upcoming off season. Do you think we will see the formation of another super team, you know, whether it's it's Durant and Kyrie obviously know what's happening in in Toronto with Kawhi Leonard that bears watching and the clippers have some cap space. The Lakers, obviously are always talked about do you think we are going to see the formation of another super team or could it be surprisingly kind of a status quo thing where career may. Move. But that may be it. Yeah. I mean, also just for definition sake. I I don't consider to stars on one team of super team. But if you know Kadian kyri link up with the Knicks or they could they could do it with the nets. They have room for for double max, and the clippers have room for double max like they could those two or any to link in any of those three cities. It seems as much cap room is out there, especially in some key markets, and as many free agent stars as there will be it almost seems like a given that there will be at least one new contender rising based on two stars picking one spot. I think that that's likely just statistically, I guess. I wouldn't I wouldn't guess which team in which two guys that port yield you could cut a thousand different ways. But some stuff's going to happen. You know, there's a lot of people think Jimmy Butler is gonna leave Philly, and he's in play a lot of people think. With the clippers. Do they get a second guy? Or is it just him? Those are the questions that we don't really know the answers to because like some some of these cases are harder to read another frankly, they're all hard to read. And I say this all the time the NBA grapevine is is as buzzy as a grapevine gets. But you just you know, you never know whether the word that's going around is is truly going to be the gospel or not. And and sometimes it's just what's true at that moment and at this moment. Yeah. Most people think Katie is leaving and most people think Jimmy Butler is leaving the most people think Hawaii's leaving what most people think as far as who's gonna join LeBron James with the Lakers because right now I told ride like watching the game last night. He didn't even want a high five teammates that wanted to congratulate them Mojo Wagner gave the ball back to Josh hard on a three on one. And LeBron was all angry atom. I mean, man if you're ever doing a poster for don't come play with this grumpy superstar. That would be the last couple of weeks in L A, and maybe the whole year. Well, who's gonna join LeBron as his side kick in LA? Well, the thing with the Lakers situation. I mean, it's it's tricky if you are any of these stories that we've talked about most of them if they're seeking out a new team, it's because they're trying to create some new identity around themselves like if Katie leaves the warriors, he's not gonna leave the warriors to go play with LeBron. He wants his own team again or maybe for the first time in in this case, it parodies, the Celtics, and maybe because that got too crowded there or because he just simply wants to link up with K D And the idea of Kyrie LeBron getting back together. I think is silly no matter how many times people float that one. Jimmy Butler doesn't wanna play sidekick anybody. So the the issue is not so much anything about LeBron LeBron over the course of his career. I think mostly guys have really loved playing with him. He's gotten a lot of people championship rings and a lot of points. They wouldn't have gotten otherwise he's elevated dies games. That's generally, a pretty good bargain. But he's also not the same guy. He's not. Primaries anymore. He'll be thirty five in December. He just went through the longest injury lay-off of his career. And on top of that. He does soak up a lot of the spotlight. And so if you're a star at a certain level, you have to take it into consideration. And you also have to take into consideration. What happens when he really goes into Klein, and it's me, and I don't know who with the Lakers, and then the other piece of this. Of course is the big wildcard Ken Laker Lakers wing deal for Anthony Davis when that starts up again. And you know, what we don't know the answer to that question. Either yet. The if you had to pick who ends up being the champion. I mean, I still lean warriors the talent and the the experience together the coastal cohesion. Even though we don't see it all the time the season. I think when it comes to the pressure cooker of the playoffs that prevails, and I think the talent prevails the only the only ones who can really take them out of their game themselves. I think and I think some teams coming out of the east could really push them hard. I think we could have a really intensely competitive finals, but I still lean warriors. And then that's the thing to like the teams that are trying to make it out of the west. Some of them haven't been that deep in the playoffs before Denver's never been in the playoffs. The teams out in the east whoever comes out it will be their first time making it. So that matters to hey Howard..

Steph Curry is the Warriors unicorn in this fairy tale

"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Kevin Durant finally out of his funk, but healthy curry needed by an Killian. Kevin Durant might not believe in fairy tales, but his coach believes in unicorns bear with me. This is where we are with the warriors. We've run out of basketball words to describe with the previous four seasons were like and what the next six months may require. So now, we're using terms that come from children's picture books. The other night after his best performance since the good ship warriors struck a rock Durant said I don't believe in. It's just going to be over in the NBA. I don't believe in the fairy tales meaning that one victory over Portland on Friday night, wasn't going to cure the ills that have beset the talented team for almost two weeks. However, a second straight victory. A one seventeen one sixteen win over much improved Sacramento on Saturday might be more evidence that the warriors have turned a corner. Her Durant's phenomenal performance. Forty four points, thirteen rebounds, seven assists, helped the warriors to their first winning streak since November fifth back to Golden State. Normalcy warriors, head coach Steve Kerr says that for four years his team has been living a charmed existence as though they'd been kissed by some magical being and turned from frogs into princes, which is kind of true, though, the Genesis of the transformation began with the two thousand nine NBA draft and the whole charmed part of you seasons to kick into gear the past two weeks of turmoil and belly button observing have at least brought clarity on one question who's the one warrior who is completely indispensable and most valued funny to think that his recently as June. There was some discussion that the answer to that question might be Durant after his back toback finals MVP awards one of the silver linings of the warriors recent struggles. Is that there's no longer a question about the engine that makes the warriors run? This is Steph Curry's team has been from the time. He was drafted by the Golden State frogs, and it will be for the foreseeable future. Recently in a speaking engagement Kirk called curry a unicorn he said that most NBA teams are quote looking for a Steph curry, but he's a unicorn he doesn't exist. Curry actually does exist. He was on the bench Saturday night hopping up to applaud his team or holding a quick conference with his teammates about what he saw the court during timeouts. He chatted with fans or grab some gum and mints from the tray on the scores table and tossed it to kids in the stands. He was wearing a sport coat and not swaddled in bubble wrap despite team owner Joe labs possible instructions curry had made his way to the arena safely in what curse suggested was quote, one of his other nine cars, though, the warriors made light of Curry's car accident. On rain-slicked highway twenty four Friday morning it surely scared the Jesus out of everyone Curry's Porsche was hit twice once when he was pulled over on the median strip Kerr said that as far as he knew curry suffered. No next day repercussions from the accident. I'm fine. Thanks for asking curry said Saturday night. Of course, the accident ended in typical Steph way with a selfie taken with the California Highway Patrol officers which was posted on Instagram with a reminder to wear your seat belts. What Kerr meant by calling curry a unicorn was that he's that elusive magical creature that appears only in fantasies, and while NBA general managers may search far and wide for quote a curry they probably never will find one. It's not just what he does on the floor though, that can't be discounted his amazing shooting skills. His thirty points a game his orchestration of the offense his pace Dereck. Action his calm demeanor. His infusion of joy, all of that has been missing from the warriors ever since curry went down with the injury on November tenth, but the other unicorn qualities of curry are his selflessness. His unassuming leadership his ability to set the tone and be a role model or the grownup if you prefer for the rest of the team he drove to drain on Green's house after green suspension to see how his longtime teammate was doing. He went on the road trip with the team. Even though he wasn't going to play to help with chemistry though. The team lost all three games on there, Texas triangle trip the site of curry on the bench cracking jokes with both green and Durant helped ease tension and start the healing on Saturday. Curry was leaping off the bench screaming in enthusiasm alongside DeMarcus cousins doubling over with laughter directing the crowd and high-fiving teammates. No, I'm not comfortable playing without. Them Durant set of Korean green who also remains out with a toe injury. I'm never comfortable without those to the warriors have a two game win streak, which is huge considering their struggles of the past two weeks. But it's not charmed. It's not a fairy tale. They're still missing their unicorn.
