China virus protests hit Hong Kong after mainland rallies

"Hong Kong residents have taken to the streets to protest China's zero COVID policy, which is now entering its fourth year. Protesters chanted freedom and we don't want revolution we want reform. We don't want a leader. We want votes. The demonstration comes after people around China took to the streets in anger at the government's strict COVID policy that has confined millions to their homes. The rallies throughout the mainland prompted the government to ease some restrictions, nevertheless, police were out in force the day after the protests. One of the Hong Kong protests took place at the Chinese university of Hong Kong, where about 50 students lit some candles in memory of those who died in the urumqi fire, days earlier, they also sang a protest anthem which hooked back to their anti government protests in 2019. Protests in Hong Kong have become less frequent under rules imposed to crush a pro democracy movement in the territory which is Chinese but has a separate legal system from the mainland.

The Democrats' Obsession With Doing Whatever the Heck They Want

"Thing up, last year, we and we've talked about this on the podcast before that the Democrats obsession with doing whatever they wanted to do and sort of be damned with the rules, everything else just doing it because they can do it. At the time, a lot of us said this is going to come back to bite them. This is going to come back and be a problem in the future. What they get done now will come back to be a problem later. The thing that you have to realize in Congress is as much as you might think otherwise, Congress is really a body that operates over very set schedule, all fours are very set rule package. It offers a very set quorums and decorum and how it goes about its business. And over my biggest gripe with the Nancy Pelosi, speakership over the last four years, and especially the last two that I was there, and I wrote in my book, the clock and the counter. I wrote about this was the Democrats would be willing to end result do anything they had to do, whether it was taking the rules of practice of the house and throwing them out, whether it was breaking the rules and prices of the house, throwing them out. They didn't care because at the end of the day, they wanted to get an end result. It was either get it Donald Trump or was either to get legislation passed, whatever it was, they were going to do it because they simply had the votes to do it. Simply having the most to do something is not the best way to do this. I'll use an example that I've used before. Nancy Pelosi and I clashed many times on the floor. One of those times that we classed on the floor was at a time in which she was giving a speech during impeachment. She accused the president, Trump at the time of a crime and Colin McRae, which you can not do. I know rules of the House and language are very different than they're there for a reason, but she said that she, you know, she made the claim. I was handling the bill for the Republicans. I stood up and I said, I'm going to give you a chance to correct your language. She said, nope, I've already approved this. She threw her papers at the well and left.

Holidays Can Be Tough...

"To the Thanksgiving edition of the go karts podcast tomorrow is Thanksgiving and it is a great time for family and for friends and everybody to get together. And look, I get the holidays can be tough. They have been in my family. I mean, when my mother passed away four years ago, you know, those first holidays were always tough. And I've always, when I especially when I was passing, and no matter what the holiday was, I always try to remember, you know, we celebrate the holiday with us. And especially Thanksgiving Mother's Day Father's Day. You know, those kind of events are very in Christmas and all are very special, but they're special because they're typically celebrated with friends and family. And especially the family part. So if I just say this, if you're missing a family member this year, that's something that is going to be tough, but it's also the memories that you've had in the past that will make this a day in which you can be thankful. Thankful for the remembers, it's thankful for the family member. Thanks for that mom that aunt and uncle that friend. That is no longer at the table, but very much in your heart.

What's Next for Republicans After Midterm Mess?

"Byron. Do you think people are going to line up to jump on a bandwagon among activists and donors? Well, there are a lot of them who do not want president Trump to either run or to win the Republican nomination. So does that mean they're going to jump on somebody else's bandwagon? I don't know. I do believe at the moment the governor of Sanders is far, far ahead of anybody else. So I think it's entirely possible. Yeah, people will actually actively support candidates in this. That will be the money primary is always important. The consultant primary is underway. I think now let me go to the RNC. It's a unique electorate, a 168 members of the Republican National Committee elect their chair. I like ronna mcdaniel. I think she's done a fine job as chairwoman for four years, and I don't like changing chair people because they ought to be a ministerial offices, not executive offices. In other words, I'm going to be a trustee for the party and running our operations between now and 2024. It's two years away. What do you think? Is she going to win reelection and do other candidates think she will be fair? Because she's awfully close with Donald Trump, but I also think she's very fair. Well, you know, I think it's not simply administrative or ministerial at all. The RNC does make policy. Remember the ill fated autopsy after Mitt Romney's laws. You're the only one, Byron, but go ahead. You're right. Reince priebus was chairman of the RNC at that point. And they went into a lot of them thought, I think I thought illogically, but they thought that Mitt Romney is going to be able to beat the incumbent president and when he didn't, they had this autopsy and said, we're never, ever. This is simply an operations review that we're making. We're not going to suggest policy in the immediately come out and so they have to support comprehensive immigration reform. So it was a disaster all the way around.

"Always thought that when you had the reason Trump was the best candidate or is the best candidate for me is that you have, in our minds, in recent history, four years of what president Trump was able to deliver under duress, mind you. Compared to two years of Biden how we can handle two more years, I don't know. But you're going to be able to say, do you like column a, or do you like column B better? And I really think that's sort of what he set up last night. Here's what I've delivered here is where we are today. Where do you stand? A or B, it makes it really easy.

Where's the Talent on Our Side? Joe and Victoria Weigh In

"So big issue we've discussed, where's the talent on our side? The big, big brains. And I don't want to I'm looking. You know, it's not just the last four years of Trump. I would say from the aughts onwards, we didn't have the gingrich's, the bakers. We didn't have the people who were, you know, the good Machiavelli's of the right inside the building. Did we not cultivate them? Did they all go off into the private sector? Give us explanations. Well, the bush people don't cultivate new talent. They're not interested in it. They don't care about it because it's all about them. It's a network. That's why when Jeb Bush ran in 2016 and that famous, okay, you can applaud now. That's because that was a sense of entitlement. And they surrounded themselves with the same players, the same tired old people who didn't understand what's changing in American politics. There are great talented people out there. We just haven't done a very good job of cultivating them. And again, I blame ronna mcdaniel. I believe the blame Rick Scott. There's all kinds of wonderful talented people. The guy from Wisconsin, who was the first chief of staff for president Trump. Ryan. Brian's priebus. What did they do to bring in great new brains? What they did? They went and got the old people from the Republican national quote to quote on exactly this issue, just to give it a little bit of a flavor a little bit of color. I think it was some rag Vanity Fair or something. Bannon gave an interview about the first four weeks in The White House, and he actually used this phrase when we needed 4000 positions filled. Presidential appointments. He said, I sat down with reince and we, quote, made a drug deal with the RNC to fill those positions. And it's really quite remarkable that we achieved what we did, given the fact that the old schlep of the skull and crossbones and all the good old boys filled those positions. They went and found every rhino they could, and president Trump had a rhino in charge.

Joe DiGenova and Victoria Toensing Return to Discuss the 2022 Midterms

"This little clip from our body. One of the few good people left at Fox, Jesse waters. So what's going on here? Elections used to be decided on election night. American Idol can handle millions of votes in a commercial break, but it takes Arizona, Nevada a week. None of it makes sense because they don't want the system to make sense. The longer some of these races drag out for, the better it is for Democrats. Because they've created a system centered around ballots, not votes. It's not about winning your vote anymore. It's not about persuading you. It's about flooding the state with as many ballots as possible and getting them filled out Democrat. So here's my thesis. And the title of the article was the 2022 anti election. Because it wasn't an election. We didn't go to the polls and then choose the candidate we thought was best. Basically, one side mobilized ballot collection for weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks, and if you look at Pennsylvania, 50 days of voting, half of the votes were cast before federman debates, Doctor Oz, so that's an election. It's simply the mechanics of collecting lots of pieces of paper, having them filled out. So my contention is an I don't know if it's bad of me to say this, whether it's undemocratic of me or against Republican values, our job is to out organize the Democrats. If we can't, if they have gone for 50 days of voting and mail out ballots, well, we just have to be better at that game. No, but let me point something out to you. What political party was the governor of Arizona for the last four years? Well, I know, because when Joe and I worked after the 2020 election. When I meet Dillon on the show on Wednesday after the election and she's in Arizona and the RNC warham and she's trying to explain to me how the GOP ran out of printer cartridges on election day and I assure you something the DNC wouldn't run out of cartridges to print ballots for their voters on election day, right, Joe. No question about it. We were out organized outspent out harvested out ballot collecting. I mean, the GOP has to completely redo its model because of mail out batting balloting. Which agreed to. Probably can't fix, right? We can't fix the law. We can't return to one day voting. Once it's the law, it's the law. And the

The Republican Path to Recovery

"Thanks to former New Jersey governor Chris Christie for sticking around and talking to me some more because governor, when we went to break, you were telling me the RNC doesn't plan to put count a ton of stage until August. I don't know if you saw JD Vance, the senator elect from Ohio. He wrote in the American conservative about our small dollar donor disadvantage. It's significant. It's massive. One way to close it is to get our candidates on a stage talking about our messages. Why would the RNC wait till August? You know, I don't know you, I think, you know, they're doing the same thing they did four years ago. I think it's cookie cutter and it's easy. And I think that's what they're going to do. Now I've actually always changed. It certainly candidates to make an agreement to go out there and do these things together as well. You know, meet you. I've never been reluctant to get on the stage. No, anybody. And have a conversation. And look, in the end of the day, what we need to do is to start talking about as you said, our public issues, and we didn't win our Tuesday in the way we should have. Because we ran that candidates who were giving not completely, but in the mean messages that were not credible. And I think voters just said, yeah, no, thank you. I don't know thank you in Arizona. Now imagine this does do see one by 13 points in 20 14. If I 15 points in 2018, this should not have even been a close race in Arizona for the governorship there. And when we're not winning those kind of races, if we can't be competitive like you, statewide, in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, there is no electoral math that gets a Republican the presidency. Let me ask you, do you think Mitch McConnell should be reelected leader of the Republican caucus? Look, I've never worked in Mitch McConnell, but I would say this. I think he does a very good job at managing a very unruly and difficult caucus. And so from my perspective, I think Mitch McConnell is the leader of the Senate Republicans and I think you should continue to be. All right,

And this is just what's happened. I don't think any governor got attacked more, particularly by corporate media than me over my four year term. And yet, I think what you learn is all that's just noise. And really what matters is, are you leading? Are you getting in front of issues? Are you delivering results for people? And are you standing up for folks? And if you do that, then none of that stuff matters. And that's what we've done.

"If I can start, I want to start with China, maybe contrary to the intuition of my audience because the most important thing that happened in the last two days with President Biden sitting down with president Xi. What do you think of that meeting as it's been reported out? Well, as best I can tell, I would sense that Xi Jinping kind of like the old Southwest Airlines line. I think he feels more free to move about the cabin because he confronted a president who was tired and confused in the sense of reversed. I think it's reversed. Taiwan policy, although it is very difficult to know what America policy anti Taiwan is today. Didn't speak about COVID and the fact that millions died as a result of what she seemed didn't raise fentanyl but it's destroying our communities. But instead wanted to focus on climate change and things that are much less relevant to American security. It flipped what we had done in the four years of the Trump administration trying to. Confront on every level economic diplomatic here at home. It's confront the Chinese Communist Party in the threat and instead I think that boy, can't we all just get along. I don't want to Cold War. I don't want to confront them. I just want to compete. That is a mistake. More sense that you as real weakness.

"Street Journal actually put this quite well in a piece that they wrote today and editorial piece. They said, quote, before COVID, he being Donald Trump was headed for reelection, but the damage from his shutdown of the economy combined with his erratic behavior in that crisis gave Joe Biden the opening to campaign for normalcy. Mister Trump lost a winnable election. I think that's a fair assessment. It was a mistake to shut things down and to keep things shut down for so long. And the inflation that we now have, frankly, is a result of all that. Poor decisions that were made at the time, and that resulted in multiple stimulus checks I mean, hey, the first, the first one, what are you going to do? We had no choice, but then there was the second and then there was Joe Biden's third, and then there was the Federal Reserve all along printing printing printing, printing in now, we have record inflation, and I suspect we're going to have real economic trouble in the near future, as the fed tries to reign this thing in. It can't be done, not the way they want. I'm sorry. I mean, hey, they can pull a rabbit out of their hat. I'll take it.

I don't think he really cared about winning the majority in the Senate. He let Blake masters hang. He let Adam laxalt hang. He had no intention of helping Herschel Walker. He is not doing that. He allowed them to be outspent, Democrats at fought. Yes, they had to spend a lot of money, but they maintained those seats because Mitch McConnell failed, not because Donald Trump failed. What I don't and I also think we need a new leader of the R and C, I'd love to see. Someone like a Lee's Eldon come in, who knows how to identify issues who knows how to talk to people and who knows how to fight. Those would be great changes to the Republican Party. I am disappointed and I do hear what you're saying and I don't necessarily disagree because gosh, the future we have no guarantees. So if you tell Ron DeSantis, hey, you can run in four years. You can run again in 2028. These are things that we can't guarantee someone, but I do think if they broke her to deal and Trump gets in and in four years or after Ron DeSantis is done as governor of Florida, he gets appointed as Secretary of State or some high level position within the Trump administration, he's beautifully appointed to run his own very successful race right now. Trump knows where all the bodies are buried and he's already started the work. It's up to America to let him finish that.

It's clear the non viscous right it just like water. Bet like water in you know why is water. The water is coming from your air conditioner in all likelihood and what happens is when you when you run the air conditioner which you certainly ran. During the monsoon season because it was hot and sticky right the air conditioners responsibilities to remove moisture from the inside. Ea from air inside your car. And that's what keeps you nice and comfortable in doing so it must eject that moisture out of the car. Somehow and it drips from the evaporator onto the ground. Fact if you look well not your car because your doesn't work but you look at other cars whose air conditioning is functioning properly. You'll notice that waters dripping out from the car and that water is the moisture that the air conditioner removing from the passenger compartment. You'll even remember that before you had this problem if you park the car after driving for a while with the air conditioner on. You'd see a little puddle somewhere very close to that side of the car where the leak now is. The evaporator is condensing the vapor. And it's supposed to leave the car but it isn't because the drain is plugged up you need to have your evaporator drain. Rutter your simple coathanger. Well you mechanic will go in there.

You know we go down owner. Watch the stoplight change. Yeah that's it that's kind of that's the kind of place for me but it does have that romantic sound to it and i love the way you say missouri. It's actually if you've ever been here. It's misery mrs. is that the proper pronunciation from missouri. missouri Yeah that's that's the way missouri. And say i will say it that way from now on. I want to be one of the guys. I wanna watch the stop light. What's on your mind will well. I've got an eighty eight ranger the little baby Pickup truck. I've got a A hundred eighty pound dog a great pyramids when moses sits in the truck with me over the passenger side He's got his feet down on the floor and has bought up on the seat where it belongs and his head hanging over the dashboard. Well he had a full stomach. The other day and improves bumpy road. He blew beats. Cookies feud on the dashboard Not into not into the events into the vent into the defrost events. Yeah oh my god. I took it down to the shade tree mechanic and dry squeaky up most of the honks. Yeah and i said what can we do because this mel Yeah i mean it's bad enough when humans but gusting yeah. We do know why it's so did did you tell them what it was Yeah did refuse to work on it. I i asked him what he can do to fix it and he said well. I can take the whole dashboard out yeah. I don't think you have to go to that extreme. Okay here. here's my here's my thought as he was talking. You know a couple of hundred dollars to do that kind of work. And i was thinking should i do that. Pay him to do the work or should i sell the truck to somebody who has a real bad. Should i get an airsick bag to my dog. Gee really what can i do about this. If i'd be obviously the stuff either went down the vent or it stayed on the dashboard. Because right right but not of it. I mean some of its state so so. Suffice it to say that we didn't stay on the dashboard went down the vent right. That vent looks like You know the thing that goes into the vacuum cleaner that you have you vacuum your rug with if you look at that. That's what that shape like. And it comes down to a circular connector at the end to which a hose attached. That comes from the heat box and the entire dashboard doesn't have to be taken out to get at this. Oh you can take off the glovebox. Fortunately he was. He was not driving right because he was sitting in the passenger seat. If you've been driving this would have been a bigger problem. Yeah so you have to do is take the dash the glove compartment out. Okay that's easy to do and you'll be looking right at this thing and it looks like a funnel where surgical mask and clubs because it's gonna be gross isn't it. It's going to be. But i don't think it's that hard because once you take out the glovebox you will see the end of this funnel shaped thing. And you'll it's got a hose clamp around it with the hose that goes to it and to loosen it up have a barrel ready and then you could actually flush it out. Well you can take the whole thing off. You can take the hose off you can take off this deduct and you can probably clean the thing out. Pretty well actually. I don't think there's any harm in actually pouring water down there. it'll just come right out the bottom. Yeah okay onto my carpet. No you'll have a bucket down there. Okay the bucket down there. Pour some water in and you'll just flush baby right. Would you what. I what i would do is line the floor actually with a with a plastic bag and let this stuff pour onto the plastic bag and puddle in the middle of it. Then you can pick the whole thing up and dump it. Put another bag in there and do that but boy it must have been pretty bad. It's not as bad as seemed at the time. I think it's i don't know you riding pretty bad but i think you can clean it up will okay. Good luck you're going to need. They were later one. Eight eight eight car talk or one.

There's some small chance that the diesel fuel being crud begin with might have in fact clogged up injectors right it's only one step up from the primordial that's right i mean these will feel it comes out of the ground and just the way it comes out of the ground they put it in a tank so it is. It is not as refined so to speak as we are. I mean as as gasoline is so it is possible that he does. Your husband is indeed. Right so i would get them to put some to maybe cleaned injectors even put some injector cleaner in. There are many additives on the market. That will help to clean the injectors and make them work the weight. And get the spray pattern back to where it should be and that'll help but the more important issue is restoring your your relationship where it was before you started all the suming. It was all right. It must have been all right. He gave her the vehicle to drive so he must have had some degree of trust. You saw husband's problem is he. You sound like a very nice lady. Thanks so that's the only thing that saved your butt because you guys dream. You didn't reckitt whatever we don't even want to use the word damage whatever it has been done to it is easily fixable so all those things to claim the that right you'll injector cleaner injector cleaner. Write you dump it in the gas tank a couple of times maybe. Mix it with a little diesel fuel to. And if that doesn't make him happier then he can take it into the shop and they can actually take the injectors out and clean them. I doubt it will need that. Eleanor has been a joy and pleasure talking to you keep smiling. It's only car. Yeah keep listening to lighten up fake for him. But i will go right. But he wouldn't even talk to us. Who had done for god. It's hundred take a short break right. I can see the gauge on. Your forehead is reading hot. Must be kinda cool..

Talk has now been on. Npr for thirty years which is about twenty nine years. Three hundred sixty four days and twenty three hours longer than any of us thought to show last. Now we know the most appropriate way to marcus. Anniversary would be with a heartfelt apology for all those hours that you wasted with us but instead this month. We're looking back at some of our all time. Favorite moments and the theme for this week's show is relationships. It didn't take long for us to figure out that just about every issue and human relationships somehow gets expressed through cars including the first stage where relationship meeting that special someone. One eight eight eight two two seven eight two five five. Hello your car talk. This is chris in colorado springs. What's up man. My question is about how to go about meeting women and traffic. You know this can be a depressing time of your bachelor's wondering if you had any Good strategies short of having a head on or Playing bumper cars to get how to get that female that you've that you've spied through from your driver's seat to first of all notice you and then to actually roll down your window. Why would why would anyone. Why would this boy chris. This is a challenge. Wait a minute. Don't give up. No i'm not giving up. Because i tried just for years i mean. Is it appropriate at a stop light to just get out of your car and leave it there and walk around the passenger side and knock on the on the on the glass to get in no jail. That's not good. This is going to be voluntary on her apart. So either she's You have to have a car that she's interested in for example and i don't know how that's obviously why some guys go out and buy ferrari testarossa 's testimonies right and that's obviously why because it's it's kind of a car that you think women will say. Wow what's that. And i have noticed in fact this past summer i was driving a bmw z. Three on the highway with the top down and the wind blowing through my ball spun. But as i was i got enough here to almost fake it. I mean the loan around and a car full of young girls had been following me. I noticed at a distance they were in the left hand lane. Still in the right hand lane in this. Carfully young babes. Yeah is following me obviously wanted to check out not just the car but who wheel boy. I'll tell you never saw a sixty five dart move fast when they pulled up next me and found out who was driving so there is the point that you might date were they were but they wanted to see the car and when they saw the car and who was behind the wheel boy. They zoomed off on that diet. They were gone so the car. Obviously you can have. You can buy an interesting and expensive sports car well. I'll liquidate my entire stock portfolio. First thing tomorrow now the the thing that got me thinking about this was was the fact that cars are so damn reliable. These days that there aren't any damsels in distress. You know to be saved with outspoken. Down by the side of the road saved anyway because all they want you to do is call. The police dug out of your car. If you wanted to be a favor call the police on your cell phone or they have cell phones and you can't trust anybody and that's part of the problem right. Well chris i think the solution that i know. That guys like berman used for years because he could never get any girls to talk to him was a dog. The puppy a puppy dog. Especially i mean. Nothing is cuter yacht. Don't care if you're allergic. I don't like dogs. I don't care doesn't like the car very much for your cats are no good. Nothing is cuter than a little golden retriever. Furry golden retriever. Hoppy have women all over you. Wait a second. I'm cuter than a golden. I don't quasimodo. Could have a golden retriever puppy on the ends of beliefs right and christie. Brinkley would be beaten on the door of yet. Beat him trust us. We do have an interesting idea here. Though that i mean there's the positive side the silver lining to a traffic jam. Is you could meet the love of your life if you only knew how to do it. Think about people. Would you use if you were to roll down the window. What would you say to an attractive female. It's in the car next to you. Know what if what if you're lucky enough to get her to roll down kirwin better than she turned to you and smiled. Oh what would be your next step. I know has all of the american men are dying. Say next i would say My car would like to get together again with your car. And we're both invited. Bad the females in the group. Okay harrah's giving two thumbs down thirty six down. Yeah let's try again. Try another one rid traffic. Who've been in traffic you're going along bumper to bumper tumblers back and forth by turns to you she turns to you and with only spoken words. She smiles and you roll down your window and she rolls down her rolls down her window. And you say what. Chris dot com. That's it well. I think karen and catherine agree.

"Don't know. I mean it just. It's impossible to say accept. Everything would have been different. There are so many things that would have been different. It's actually hard to nail down. What specifically would have been different. Can i give you my hottest retroactive. Take just because we're kind of talking about it right now okay. So that's another category coming. So the category is and we're doing right now. Hottest retroactive take francis from bill. Simmons not years ago one. You wish you had at the moment. here's the take. I wish i had in the moment. This will eventually destroy the new england patriots as we know where they want a super bowl after this yes totally made another super bowl and then they won a super bowl name berth. Yes absolutely always it. However i do. I do point to this game as a really really important moments in the timeline of kind of like brady really needing to go somewhere else in really wanting to go somewhere else in orchestrating his way out and obviously it took a long time in part because he had to do it by getting to free agency but also because they were so good and they went back to super bowls and they won another one. But i do think that this and a lot of this is coming from South africa shams reporting but in particular. He had that piece. You know about a year later year after this game about all the figures that were developing new england and a lot of it started right after this game. Because that's when brady i think you know. Sometimes i think people think it's a binary between was brady this guy who would take criticism and bell. Jack could you know. Mfm watching film and tell him that the quarterback and foxborough high could make better throws than he could and brady took less money and was just totally about team. I never ju- attention to himself or anything or it's like he's completely not that guy when i think in reality he did a lot of that stuff for a long time. And then after a certain point i think and pretty understandably so he started feeling like you know what i do deserve to be treated a little bit differently than everybody else. Maybe i've done a little bit more than some other players on the team. Some other people in this organization. Maybe it's not the most ridiculous thing in the world to acknowledge that a little bit. It was the fall after the super bowl that his book came out. And then he started. You know there started to be more Tension between out guerrero and the team. The following fall was when guerrero got banned from the sidelines and had to travel on his own and everything. Alex guerrero's officially back varies assery on the sidelines and tampa bay. Exp- he is welcome. I'm sure he's on the plane. I'm sure it's all by the way. Alex barros Banning from team travel was not terribly bad. I think he used to get hooked up with if there was an aston martin dealership in whatever city. They were traveling to ending tom. Brady's deal with them Helped alex grow. Get a loaner car once or twice. I'm sure his accommodations were perfectly comfortable. I think he was fine. But i don't remember back in tampa. What do you you like. He would go to like buffalo for a weekend and get an aston martin. Yeah yes so how it used to be was that like. He could travel at the patriots. Who is he used to have an office way. Too much work to have a to have asked martin for like two days. What are we doing here. Well that i can't answer. All i can say is sometimes it would be like okay. The patriots would be staying at some local marriott. And then alex grow would pull up in an aston martin and it was like. I'm sure you're staying in a much nicer hotel. This and i'm sure your your travel or entrance fide. One time i was gone the senior bowl i landed really late at night in atlanta airport and they gave me like a really really nice corvette and i didn't understand how to drive it and It was just a very complicated car and then as soon as they got on the highway got stopped and i was like oh man i must have been going too fast and i pulled over georgia. Pd and they were like you know you're going like twenty five miles per hour on the highway like.

"Just now though once the comeback started it all seemed to make sense There're just things about this game that when you watch it in the moment you say okay well that's it that's it i mean even you even think about the The devante freeman play When they're backed up inside the ten add before the royal catch where he goes on covered and the patriots defensive breakdown he goes for like thirty yards will not have been happening all game especially as calkins got up so big just the edges. They were able to get there so consistently and the patriots had such trouble covering matt and and they've tightened it up but then it was just like all over again. It felt like you know they're that actually in some ways struck me more than like what i remembered was kind of the inevitability once the comeback started was partially being like what the fuck is going on but then also being like. Oh my god. The patriots are machine. This is tom. Brady like if somebody's going to do it. It's going to be tom. Brady the thing that i had sort of forgotten about that even as as they were really mounting that comeback. How many times. It almost didn't happen. I think that there are probably a lot of times. When if you're arthur blank dan quinn your thomason a trough. You've said oh my god. Thank god we're safe like few ativan even when you didn't say that after a play like if it didn't go in the in the falcons direction brady threw some dangerous passes like alfred. I think he must've tipped three balls a couple of them in one. There was one in overtime. I'll just say right now because it's also one of my greatest. What ifs vic beasley could have intercepted but the play. Before james white's touchdown there was a drought could have been intercepted by vic beasley. Got one hand on it. It would have been an incredibly more. And what would it be would need to have been more turned a little bit but the way the ball was thrown. If you the ball hundred times it gets picked off a not insignificant amount of times. Yeah there is another on I mean first of all just to have the drive. That had the element catch that led to the Touchdown the to conversion that tied at radio to complete a third and ten to chris hogan there was another one where you know. He throws over the middle alpher. Just just tips it up and it was like that was inches away from being a pick and it's so funny. How like all of that totally slipped my mind of just the like white. Knuckling every single plan that drive a hundred. That's the weird thing is that afterwards it seemed preordained and yet there were a handful of times where probably shouldn't have been. I mean you look at their. Was dwight free any sack of tom. Brady with eight minutes to go in the first play of the drive and he probably think the whole thing. The whole thing is dawn And then they score a touchdown a couple of plays later It's just the patriot. This was this may have been peak. Patriots Tom brady is doing doing whatever it took. I just making making plays. Everybody feel like there was one reaction To i think it was the catch. Where calvin noy was like kind of freaking out a little bit. Yeah he's his whole face is just like widening but one of the funny things about is everybody else in the patriots was just like. Yeah this is kind of what we do a mea. Connor reminds me of like manchester. United was always famous for this where they would come back and just got to be normal. And i saw a quote the other day from barry trotz. Who's the islanders coach. And i thought were interesting. Because this whole debate over momentum. And obviously i think momentum in sports is overrated for just from the media aspect of and how much we attribute to it but he said momentum doesn't carry over but confidence does and i just kind of feel like when you get any situations. And you're the atlanta falcons and your Robert alford or any of these guys. Were these little tiny mistakes on the back end with five minutes to go and not picking off a pass or or know letting the ball hang on your arm whatever it is and these ninety nine percent of these things are not not within your control but i kinda feel like when one team knows. They're going to come back and the other team also knows the other team is gonna come back. Weird things start to happen. Yep and anything. There's some of that that happens. You know we'll we'll definitely get to this. But that's not contained just to the game right. It's it seems like it's in. Some ways contains to what happened to both of these franchises in the aftermath day. I'd say we're remember talking to birdie. Afterwards yes i do too. He was so he said he was just like someone asked him to sum it up and he was like well a lot of should happen tonight. Yes but he also so. I think it was like there was such a back and forth. You can even hear it so far in this conversation that we're having wear like part of my experience was that What's going on. I have to throw out this story. That i have written right a new one like this. Be real and then the other half is sensing this inevitability of of the patriots doing and i think the players felt that too because brady sobbed on the field. After this happened later.

"The reporting never got to the point of he has requested trade. I think he asked miffed. I think the characterization is he was missed. Missed miffed is i think is spot on and i think i mean. Look smart on smart on russell wilson and his camp and the seahawks for maintaining some plausible deniability there and and if it never gets to the point of a trade request than you can always lean back on the i never requested a trade and it kind of sounds like oh i was never none of that mattered and it was like no it was there was some miffed ness. That was real. I think this might be in perpetuity and pete carroll was asked about it a couple weeks ago and he basically said it's old news water under the bridge all that stuff There's no problem and the seahawks are a team that they find a way to make things run pretty well. I mean famously. To seahawks punch each other in the face. We won the super bowl There's they can find some harmony and chaos and this isn't even chaos and the identical about this a couple of times over the past couple of weeks about budget the the structure there and and and how it all works. But i actually think it. It's okay and pete carroll will be okay with it if every offseason russell wilson says a lot. We can have improvements. I don't know we could. They could listen to me more all that stuff but then when it comes to minicamp he's there and all that stuff and i do think that they're there. They probably will listen to him. Where i probably think he will probably get one more power if the organization And i think that they're probably more setup for that. Then the packers are quite frankly at this point. Probably a whole host of reasons for that But yeah it's It's it's going to be a fascinating thing to see how the next couple of years operate with that. But i actually do not think it's much of an issue for twenty twenty one. You know you know it's funny. It seemed like there was this point when he had made those comments about getting too much. I want to get hit. Less and i was happening at the same time as we were learning more. And more about aaron rodgers disatisfaction and zine rogers. Go out and make news. That ended up drawing more attention to his data dissatisfaction with the packers and it kind of felt like oh. These players are on parallel tracks. I mean even. Julio jones to a degree key certainly made some news that reflected back on his desire. To leave the falcons wrestles in just just at that point. Where it's like will. Russell wilson be one of these guys who does this that it was just like we never heard wrestles again until now and now. It's like all right. Let's get to the next sort of disgruntled quarterback corner. It's aaron rodgers so president. Mark murphy of the packers calls aaron rodgers. A complicated fella. I was just browsing twitter. And i saw that. A t shirt company is selling t shirt now with aaron rogers face it's as complicated fellow underneath it Nor i think aaron rodgers probably is a complicated fella. But if i was the president of a team that was trying to get him to come back i probably would not voice those those dots. Aaron rodgers has read into everything will probably a little more than he showed for over fifteen years. Now i mean there was a sixty minutes report in two thousand nine or whatever where his teammates basically said he he thinks about. Thank you over. Analyzes things sometimes And i think that if you're a packers right now and you are trying to repair your relationship with the reigning. Mvp who does this. Sort of thing Who reads into you know. Reason do phrase calling you complicated fellow. I feel like right now. We you might want to shut it down for a little bit. Until he's he's showed training camp or something as an e. You might want to down as engaged through the packers. I would not. I would not be commenting on aaron rodgers unless it's to say i love aaron rodgers and hope he shows up. Yeah i think you can come into little because if you just don't comment at all that can be a prissy. Well most like matt will soar. Those guys are like we we want him. We want him here. he's great. I know he lakes that will her would. If you're mark murphy. Right now what is the best course of action. Because i don't think i quite i think mark mirv is pretty good. Job is good at his job. But i don't think that right now being like he's a complicated fellow can help anything. I agree but i think it's a tough spot you know. Why because aaron rodgers complicated fella. It's a trap. It's a trap a complicated fellow because he is a complicated fella and he's going to hear you know it's gonna make located fellow mines All right Next thing stefan gilmore is not showing up minicamp. I do want to say it was looking at Minicamp updates a little bit earlier. Henry mckenna covers the patriots. A put a video up. He said mac jones's a nice pump fake lot of buzz. God pump fake stefan. Gilmore has not shown up to minicamp cam. Newton is apparently healthy brexit. Last week we'll be taking wine share of the reps this week. Worried about on komo. He wants more money. Letting his base salary simulate seven million next year and he's a very good quarterback so it's not it's not unfathomable that he would deserve more money or be able to find a way to get some hold outs don't typically the patriots of experience with And i think there's been some speculation that he would be candidate deposit. Next is the reason there aren't a lot have not been a ton of holdouts in foxborough is because if a guy's going to be really expensive they have no plans to get him under a manageable deal. They usually end up on another team for first or second round pick..
