And mainly a lecture to the basketball media. As Warner Wolf would say, Let's go early audio tape players and the coaches know how great spo years. And there's this narrative that spoke was not great. On there that he doesn't get a lot of respect, which you should He prepares his team every single night. We just watch the Miami heat. No matter who's on the floor. They're going to play eat culture. They're gonna play hard play together. That's what he's always been about. But you guys have Change the narrative or has never given suppose respect because he had the wade or you had myself. You have Bosch. But a lot of coaches have town.

"Chiefs just Kinda got their number? I think those things happen and we're building this Lamar Patrick Mahomes. Guys rivalry to the paper Manning Tom Brady you know what I'm saying where the the networks are going to try to build this. So we get the Sivas, the regular season, and hopefully the postseason every year. But in the match matchup, you know guys, I don't think there's any question we know who the the top dog and the biggest cat and the planet is and Patrick Mahomes. So you've gotTA match him. Throw for throats what's happening is in well, Patrick will get all the credit for last night guys and understandably. so I thought the genius and I'm not overly bothered by Lamar saying that as long as he works on fixing it about the Kryptonite right that those things you've got to find a way to attack it the genius last night was you go into a game? You're saying, okay, we got this superstar. quarterback who throws the ball far better than people ever ever thought and is quarterback not just an athlete meaning Lamar Jackson and he destroys you exhausting to prepare for you'd rather you'd rather prepare for Brady or rivers or breeze pocket guy who sits there and delivers the during your practice. We can you guy like this because you don't have anybody to can simulate what he does on the practice field but I Thought SPAG all their approach. Last night was here's that we're doing this. We are going to give you different looks you're going to beat us from the pocket consistently or if if you can't beat us because we'll give you some runs. We'll actually be just with your feet once in a while we'll give you a few runs, but we refused to allow you to beat us both ways that was the genius. Of the homes does and makes it look easy, it's the other stuff because the begin to shoot out to different games it didn't even look that difficult from homes. Last night I was most impressed with Kansas City defense because we're starting to put them on par with they're taking away. In a League to Shawn Watson Lamar, Jackson instead of taking them out of games we gotta start respecting them a little more because they're playing with a lot of energy speaking of deshaun Watson, the Texans, what a mess I really thought they needed to win that game against Pittsburgh to. Save their season and it didn't happen. They look good early and had nothing I think in the second half I mean they they they were what's going on there and can they bounce back I? It looks hopeless in Houston. Listen Robin Chris from me I'm with you one hundred percent. It's not only the fact that they they got beat by CNN to schedule makers. I understand. Favourites, but you guys know this in order to get where you want to go. You gotTa be good teams and even if you don't beat them, you gotta show me us you. You've got your I I don't believe in moral victory but you've got to compete and show me that somewhere along the line you understand matchup listen we know how good to Shawn Watson is. But when you face Big Ben Lamar Pat yes. What those three cats really good too. So what else are you going to win at and guys I've looked and watch every single game two to three times? Do you realize you can go through every every personnel grouping y'all offensive line, which is pretty huge disappointment this year they're defensive front seven it gets. punked in the rugged matter of fact, it's like a bunch of seventh graders playing against grown men with a front seven of the defense of the Texans. They're playing on skates on everybody else's playing on cleese and they're just they're they're running I mean easy game a buck sixty for the opponents but every unit from receiver right down the line for special teams they have dominated or beaten nobody ahead matchup. So when you don't do that and then you got a quarterback yet the Shawn Watson doesn't play phenomenal football every week they don't get a chance that if he plays diesel football, they're not gonNA win so they haven't been competitive been dominated physically. I can fix the finesse side guys. We all I can say, you know be more precise than your route. Let's work get the ball out quicker. Those things what I don't know if I can fix is when Mike Tyson runs across the ring and punches me in the face in his prime five times and you're like Oh hell no, how do I fix that you don't so you don't fix that in season you don't just Aaron Donald Not available in a trade. Sorry. Yeah. You Ain't available to go get so you'd better suck it up and and and bow your Abo- your naked sixty chest out and start to hit somebody and you Know what I don't WanNa. See you just suit against Jacksonville who's playing football I WANNA. See to get their Kendra I wanna see you do it gets behold. That's what I WANNA see and I'm with you. I. Don't think you know I've had him as a wildcard playoff team but the way they're playing noted on, I don't I don't see how you can do it unless you run through some miracle part of it, it ain't going to get any easier because the colts are starting to pick it up defensively and Tennessee doesn't get themselves beating the division saw I. I don't think anybody liked the De'andre Hopkins situation when they let him go but. With the way this thing is going how much is this and maybe I thought they had a good receiving core anyway even without. But is this if this keeps going and they don't make the playoffs, is that going to come back to bite Bill O'Brien or will people get past that? If they'd already is they're never gonNA get past this one of those deals going on in Houston now. I don't care if cooks. Fuller and stills all catch a hundred balls. They're still GONNA say we'll hop one sixty. You know that's how they're. The bitterness towards Bill O'Brien is so palpable. It's unbelievable that even here's what happens when they win. It's never built bill pointing out that bill get. So credit we're may lose a you know. The the fact that somebody fumbles bills fall right Oh hey we all guys. You don't trade the best hand. You don't trade the best player in the League at his position or if not the best, he may not be third you guys though he's in that taw right so we talk about the best well, right now talking to, yeah, he's gotTa catching I, mean look what he's doing and Arezzo already they've got good players and then when the guys who were supposed to step up cooks, cobb fuller spills are all three of the big three of them got like four more catches than been been hop. Combined. So they're not making thoughts with all that team speed they go vertical making no place down the field times on their open Watson's myths, and so there's a lot of timing issues. They're never gonNA get over this fellow. I'm just telling you get a second round. He was legalized theft for Arizona David Johnson's just been average so far. Oh Bill O'Brien run him out of town if they ever do have the power the ownership to run out of town the first thing. They're going to point to is nothing but well, it's groundhog day we get to the playoffs and I was wondering farther but it was just the dumbest thing to trade away to the the Andre Hopkins and get what you got for.

Night guys the first of all the price in the beginning I expanded to have fifty, five million euros that is. but then the corona came and I ex and FUN Obagi already a deal with rail it was in January. the deal was fixed. Everybody was happy fun to make especially because well, course Real Madrid maybe to get away with man united one of the biggest even world. they only have to do to medical but of course, it's always a the last thing that needs to be fixed the medical, but then corona game and then Real Madrid didn't WanNa do anymore because the actor refresh they had to sell players.

I completely agree and even yeah. I think fringe fan, just seeing something that's fresh and competitive. Will will come under the tent to, but it's funny. I was reading articles today about the Yankees. Exhibition game with the Phillies and reading about how many players came over? To D gregorious and gave him fist, bombs, handshakes and hugs. And, I'm reading that gone. We'll okay, but after somebody hits a game winning home run, they're to phantom high five and nobody can spit and. The line meanders all over the place, but you know I I. I'm the same way so for those fringe. Fans I. Totally get it. I'm the same way I can't wait to see how it all comes together. That can't wait to watch a game. And there was one team is over the weekend. I don't pirated Tiger I. Don't remember was, but after a win instead the line the line with the high five. They did the line, but they tapped. Feet. Oh, so people are getting creative in major league baseball. Yeah that that's going to be the next things how these guys figure out a way to get creative to celebrate and I can't wait to watch it and Randy Moss and I are going to start a reality show on Fox. We're GONNA grade their celebration. I walk off should definitely be interesting. Is there any as the voice of baseball and the face of Fox's or anything? You do about the blackout rule? It should not be happening this year. Baseball is everything happening. People pissed off already about it. Because I tweeted earlier right before we started this podcast, I tweeted that MLB network on Sunday had their second highest ratings ever for an exhibition game with the Yankees emf mets and the game was the second highest ratings ever and New York was blacked out the entire market, so yeah, I I don't understand that I. I is not. Yeah well I've never understood that, and then we're doing games. Really the MLB part of it is always founded me, and then we'll do. Games were non exclusive. And you're doing a game on F s one and you just WanNa. Go got she. Everybody was watching this. Or watching their own telecasts, get right. That's the stuff we played every October, but I don't know I didn't know that so. Thanks for educating.

"But yeah I think. Hopefully I'm done this long enough that I can do a game just watching it off a monitor and And there's plenty of stuff to cover I. Don't think we've ever had more things to discuss. you know whether it's. How these teams have traverse the last x number of months after this almost four months layoffs You know even going back I think it's important to kind of go back and remind everybody where free agents are wait. Where's Anthony Rent? Don't is now an angel. He's now with the nationals and he was a big part of them winning at all. Gear Kohl's a Yankee although he'll pitch on Thursday just stuff that I. Think you know can get lost over over time because it's just been awhile since all of us including the play by play guy have been. You know studying and Dreaming About Baseball Absolutely I. In the past few days here when when the game started back up exhibition games. Yankees played few games and you start you know I forgot for a second de Gregori says off the Yankees have an I. Find. You'RE A die. Hard Fan! I mean that that's stuff that you go wait. Yeah, always Philadelphia their managers Joe Girardi. That's right, and then you go. This is all the stuff that I. was on top of six months ago and you know you at least with regard to the baseball offseason. A lot of that stuff happens I'm I'm knee deep in slip on I'm trying to keep up with it on the side. A whole world has been on pause, and you have to go back and. Look at rosters and look at and look at how things have changed since two thousand and nineteen, so a lot has changed. We know that and it's important for us to to cover all of that in around the game on Saturday. Night I wanNA I. Do want to talk to you about football, too, but few more here on the baseball since it's coming back, I'M GONNA. GonNa I'M GONNA. Put you on, you mentioned. You have a lot to talk to and a lot to talk about, and you mentioned all of the changes. I want to just throw some of these changes at you and get the job uptake I know you probably can't just say Oh. That's the biggest piece of garbage rule ever, but if you can let it fly and. I JUST WANNA. Get do my best. Cardboard cutouts of fans in the stands. Do we like that or do not like that you know I? Can't I can honestly say. I can put my hand on a Bible and swear on my kids health that I have really not seen it yet It seems odd to me. and and I've read plenty with different Yankees and their opinions on what they saw I saw Zach Britton. Did mind it. and other guys thought it was weird. but I think most of the time. We're just talking about as a TV audience I. Don't think the players chair I do think the players and I'm sure this is the next question i. do think the players need a little bit of crowd, noise and and I came out early and. Got Headlines because I talked about the need for something the. Broadcast and it can't just be flat dead And and still I'm anxious to see how that all plays out, but but to me. Jimmy is a work in progress and I think a lot of this. Stuff's going to be ironed out over the first couple of weeks. In the way you see and hear the game. On Thursday or Saturday or maybe even mid next week is going to be different than you see or hear the game two two weeks from now interesting. Yeah, I actually was going to ask about the crowd noise because. I feel like everyone's doing the fake crowd noise. I feel like it's not really a debatable topic anymore because it seems like locally and nationally, everyone's going to do it i. read somewhere today I. Don't know if it was Fox or another network. I should have paid close attention, but I guess. There's going to be some network that lets fans use an APP to safe. They WANNA boo or cheer, and they're going to use that as a way to do the crowd noise so. I heard about that early. Early in this off season in this build up, but what I find initial. report that I got on that, which is literally two and a half months ago three months ago was that there was just a nas of a delay that it would be off. You know like if you if you saw something that you wanted to boo or cheer. By the time you registered it through your phone and it registered in the stadium or on the broadcast. I think there was enough of the delay that it was a little Off a little off putting, but I know if that's something that's been ironed out in free that. I forgot that was you who caused the? Let stir about I. Guess You were the first went out there to say there's going to be crowd, noise and everyone crazy. Well I mean I talked to the funny thing is in this world is so weird to me. Sometimes with with regard to media coverage I, said set on real sports with Bryant Gumbel maybe three weeks prior. In every interview I did. I talked about a talked about talk about it I. do it on Andy Cohen's. Satellite Radio Show right, and then it becomes a thing Mike I've been saying this for three weeks. Why is this a thing now but? He does and and you know how these things go there. Producers pump it out. May You know sometimes? It gets picked up so maybe it was a slow news. Ask, did you? Did you plead the fifth? Did you answer all three questions? And that was his radio show. You did not watch what happens live. Yeah, but I have been on watch. What happens live, but thankfully I think that was tree three questions on with the lovely. Vicki Gun Vilson of the real housewives of Orange County mailing maybe and I remember sitting there and people on twitter. Who had no idea who I was Bio Vicki? Johnson had no idea why was were tweeting and all my God these two are such a such a fun, couple and I. And I remember sitting there during a commercial break, and she turned to me and the set is like the size of my dorm room at college. It's tiny and. She turns to me and she goes now. What do you do and I said I'm here? do in the All Star game. For Major League Baseball at City, field Oh, that's cute and then turn back around and. And that was that was really my only off. Air Exchange with thing. And I. WE'RE GONNA. Go totally off the beaten path, but will Andy Andy in a way is sort of like a guy. We both are huge fans of in how it starting that they get people to say things..

It's fantastic Charley Steiner and Jack Edwards Kenny. Mayne you know it's it's that's to me is you know. That's when I watch sports center I watch Van Pelt and you know now if I'm up but like that's when you had to watch it you you had no choice. If you're a sports fan you had to watch it. Basically realize that we used to wake up Monday mornings open a newspaper and tabulate. How many rushing yards. You're running back ad and how many touchdowns at this is how we did. Fantasy sports. Us It with a marker in the newspaper and You would only get your highlights from. Chris Berman and Tom Jackson on a Sunday night. Because there's no chance before direct TV that you even saw that rams forty niners game on the West Coast and so a gym effort did like in the people that told us and shaped our opinions on sports or those guys. I mean I do the morning show now for NFL network. I can't imagine I'm coming on many Monday mornings and I'm telling the viewer about a game. That happened on Sunday. If you're watching our show they don't already know what happened to it was always the Monday morning was always USA Today. Because I couldn't take a chance that the daily news of the post would be like a late addition the Sunday night. Giving me because you had a great the fantasy fantasy game that week so get. Usa Today aren't we covered it? All we We went through it. Is I know you wanted to talk about the answers or anything left on the table for you to say I love it but I also am open saying we might need episodes twelve thirteen fourteen. Fifteen sixteen it'd be nice what Here's a question for you. Let's do this if there was if they were going to do something similar to the last dance. Same exact thing with one. Nfl Player. Who would you want to see a bi who asked me team? It would be like no okay. Nineties cowboys cowboys. The amazing player I go back and forth because there's guys who have these wild lives like off the field and there's guys that are just truly committed on the field Yeah I could. I could go a lot of ways and I don't have an answer. Who aren't there a nineties? Cowboys would be the ultimate documentary. It's still hasn't been don. None of those guys have gotten on camera. None of them have gotten together. But the stories that you get whether it be from Jeff Perlman's book or from and not even the salacious stuff. I'm talking just the stories of Dave. Want Stat explaining the defensive meetings. You know to me when I'm doing my show for Fox like these guys have so many stories that have not been told and I feel like now is the golden era would love a ten part series on the Jimmy Johnson. And then even the Barry Switzer cowboys that. Aras fantastic to me. That's a good answer. Good answer do you know when the when the running back with Kyle doing the oilers those light tonight Jose night they'll dot com okay and then it'll be on youtube as well? I?

"Thousand nine hundred eighty eight. I don't care what the score is. What an and just put it on and I'm going to watch it. Can I tell you my favorite part of the last dance? It's not the Michael Jordan looking at the IPAD in the meantime it seeing Chris Gatling. Take Dennis Rodman in the post. It seeing you know debt left shrimp at a Pacers Jersey. It's that's the stuff the old place last night when I'm flicking through and I see that on. Nfl Network. Jimmy. We could talk about the broadcast elements of it. But what about Marian buts about Ben? Coates what about you know? Mark Ingram Senior Irving Fryar like there is a real style to seeing these men and not the hall of famers like the other guys that Kyle and I are leaning into also. Because we're doing this thing and to get through your leading to it. Were doing a thing for NFL DOT com. That they're they might put on. Nfl Network as the first one went really well but he and I go back. And we re watch games from yesteryear. And it's not the classic Super Bowls that you've seen thirty times from NFL films. It's a random playoff game or a random regular season game that you might remember and that we break it down. Not The plays not the famous moments where we hit all that. But we're talking about. What the Hell is he wear? Joe Montana is wearing eastern wrist bands in the game that we did this week. We did nineteen ninety-three chiefs versus oilers. A game where Joe Montana takes the chiefs into the astrodome and every time the the oilers make a sack they're playing whoop there. It is by TAG team encountered. I break it down like that's exactly exactly what you were doing. Less light on twitter tweeting about this game like what in the world is happening in this broadcast in an awesome. I Yeah I I love the fact that you're doing a cheese because I was thinking to myself last night. I didn't tweet this but in my head. I'm like I'd love to see any game from the astrodome. Oilers run-and-shoot days love and says I love that you're doing that. I I can't believe that and you know it's funny as I'm watching the game and I. I remember when I was a Kid. My two favorite running backs in the NFL. Where Marian Butts and natron means he means business and it was Chris. Berman Natron means business and Marian. You know cigarette butts or whatever God the pads that Marion Butts at on last night and I forgot I totally forgot. He was on the Patriots. Of course you think of them as the San Diego chargers number. Thirty five yeah. Yeah This game that we're doing. Let me just give you? Some unlocked Christian equate because of course and Berry word. Whoever else barry word up very word up We're doing against gone. Nfl DOT COM. You can find. It's called run it back? It's GonNa be on Youtube. The first one we did was the Freddie Mitchell game in two thousand four when it was fourth in twenty six and mcnabb hits Freddie Mitchell and we ended up talking about the furniture play. We end up talking a lot more about Todd Pinkston. Who's the other wide receiver? Who's got just chicken? Legs and his dominating this game and talking about Almond Green and why we never think of green is one of the great running backs of that Arab. Anyway we're doing this game and it's Warren Moon which would end up being his last game as a Houston oiler. It's it's Joe Montana. And The wild part is this is two weeks after. Kevin Gilbride gets punched in the face by Buddy of mine that are broadcast in the game is is Dick Ebersol. Nbc's the Lead Guy. Dick Ebersol the play by play guy. No no no Dick Emberg Dick Enberg. I'm sorry to ever sell probably put them in the booth. Ebersol is the executive. Dick Enberg is doing the play by play and it's Bob trumpy who you probably remember. Bob Trump tight end. And he's fantastic. He's been tastic in and the entire broadcast. Every play that happens it's cut away to Buddy Ryan Grimacing are rolling is. And it's it's incredible. Montana takes a beating and part of the broad. Could part of the stuff that me and kyle are about his holy cow like Montana as an elbow that looks like a baseball getting knocked around. The refs are not protecting him. And Joe Montana's a chief. We we remember okay. He had a nice little playoff run. You'll forget Joe. Montana missed two full seasons from the. Nfl shows up the chiefs in ninety three and takes them to the playoffs. Wins the game in overtime against the Pittsburgh steelers on a crazy comeback and then comes back all the way in the Astrodome in the House of pain and beats the oilers in it would end up being one of the great comebacks of Joe Montana's career. It's forgotten because you know whatever it time goes on and we forget but we went back and revisited it and it's just tasked with Marty Schottenheimer that she's coach. Marty Schottenheimer coach of end. They're down ten. Nothing and Joe Montana. Hits a guy named Keith? Cash tight end and those. Who are die hard. Nfl fans might remember this. Keep scores a touchdown makes it ten to seven takes the ball and he spikes the ball on a poster of Buddy Ryan's face in the end zone love it. And it's like the most violent like touchdown celebration and me and I'll go to a whole riff on like if this were to happen at of Gronk was to score a touchdown and then go and throw the ball at a drawing of the face of the defensive coordinator. I think the broadcasters would be outraged. It'd be like what an immature petulant. Guy Gob Trumpian Emberg our loved. Like yeah rate. There's no place in the game. No place for that kids watching. But it's all about the look and the feel of the broadcast. There's no I intend. There's no score. There's no bottomline ticker it's very odd. It yet incompletely completely endearing. It was great I I had a couple of awful people reply to me on twitter last night about like. How can you know? It's very hard to watch us with no score bug and no down and like that person is one. Why are you sending me that tweet? Like if I'm sitting here saying I enjoy this. I don't need you to come in and tell me you're not I don't give a shit and to. That's not why you're watching the game for the actual score and the the play. I mean you're doing it all wrong and don't tweet me. It's just so good. Those pay the parcel screaming every player. Last night was phenomenal. Just constantly. Berating people loved it. Which leads me to a segue on this podcast. Which is your podcast to my question based on this Michael Jordan documentary. Can I ask you? Can WE DIG in. We can dig in. I hear I'm so I have. I want to talk about the last dance. I Y you just ask one question. I have so much to say about the last dance but I am very terrified of saying it because there's going to be backlash and I'm not in the mood to or not being cynical or not being negative about the actual documentary. It's a question to you in a sports media. Sense that I think you and your listeners can ponder good if Michael Jordan was treating teammates like he treated in that nineteen ninety eight season that we see in that all of the people on twitter are champing in loving and saying. Oh He's got such incredible vision. What a savage. What a winner. Whatever if there was an athlete. Who is doing that today? Would the same people on twitter? Who are lionising and loving Michael Jordan's intensity and commitment to excellence and in crazy way? He treated these teammates but that he brought them along with the same exact people. Praising Michael Jordan's greatness. Today be appalled if an athlete was to treat a teammate that way in two thousand twelve they would be trying to take down. Michael Jordan. Twenty four seven. Because I I'll say that would not fly today. There'd be a lot of backlash flu then. I don't think it was celebrated. I'm saying the same people on Twitter. Who WERE PRAISING. What a look at the focus. Look how he talks to these guys like look how he treated. Scott Burrell again Jordan. Goes out of the way to say you know. Hey off the court I was great and I you know. Burrell says the same thing. He was as awesome as it could be bunker the same exact people talking both sides of their mouth and I don't have names also. I'll say this I'll say this. This is one of the pro. I don't even know if you WANNA say problem but this is one thing that I think people have to understand. The documentary is airing on. Espn ESPN people staff dominate twitter. More than any other sports organisation those people are. Never GonNa say one negative thing about the documentary or Michael Jordan and I don't even mean negative. You're not gonNA see a critique you're not gonNA see know there was even an incident This Sunday where the episode where he wins the title after his dad is a father's day he throws himself on the floor hysterically crying. I don't understand that how you don't cut him today and say talk to me about that moment. What was going through your head what known from. Espn's ever going to say that you're never going to get one ESPN person offering a critique or anything about Jordan or the documentary. So that's why when you go on twitter. It looks like people are just orgasm. Twenty four seven over the documentary because the biggest media company entity in the sports world can't offer anything other than this is the greatest thing since sliced bread. So we can do it because we're not affiliated with. Espn now having said that the documentaries great. It's phenomenal it's entertaining. It's the old stuff the old footage MARV DOING GAMES WITH BILL. Walton said those those sons uniforms that they trump they all baby blue nets uniform. The documentary could not be more enjoyable. But you can critique some things that are not in it or not covered and for me you know. I don't have this. I think Michael Jordan is the single greatest basketball player of all time. That's my opinion but I don't have this. Let me get on my hands and knees in. Bow Down to them type thing. When I watched that I think okay. Yes on one hand. He seems like an extremely cool individual the way you know the cigars and the suit but I see that and I'm like he I wouldn't WanNa hang out with him for five minutes. He seems he seems exhausting. To be around with the constant just busting balls. And everything's a competition and this and like I can't be around people like that for a long time. I want to be like just you gotta calm down for five minutes and Michael Jordan's response. Which is what he says. When these critiques for being a tough teammate? Well then I'm off where you. I'm not all awesome guy and Jimmy. You grew up in where long island where for a soothing. You were more of a Mason Oakley Guy. And you're a ewing I was and I was actually grew up in New Jersey. And I know it sounds crazy but like Patrick and and Kenny Anderson. And Derrick Coleman and all those guys were my guys growing up and I think I don't view Jordan the same way either and yet I find this documentary to be such a wonderful trip down memory lane and that's what I love like. It brings warm feelings of when I really loved the NBA. And when things were real like the rivalry stuff with Isaiah is real. And it's still real. I see now you know. Whoever is drinking wine with Lebron James Barber shop and they're all just complaining about you know the media and it's like I get it but like I kind of wish. There were some rivalries in that there was some Actual without a doubt you know like it was much better back then so much better and the NBA. I as far as the documentary itself. I think it's fantastic little bit too much. Bj Armstrong is that fair to say. I don't think beat Armstrong plays a major major role in Michael Jordan's story and yet I strong. I don't have a problem with with that. That's fine you don't you don't with the Divisional. Rasc- like I'll give you one thing. Everybody loves this week and I didn't love was the La Bradford Smith thing because just came off like a guy making a story like well no but Jordan's the one who made it up but my so it's like okay. So he's the greatest player of all time but he needs to make up a story about La Bradford. No he doesn't need to make up a story about with private Smith because when he can put the ball in the hoop like no one ever could. It goes without saying. That's a window into the psychosis the mental. That's what I'm saying like. I find gamesmanship that he needs. He needed that edge. I I wrote about it. Monday for aside Com got great response. A lot of people read. It was good about the narrative that the documentary because he punched eve current face and he would bully scupper rally. That that's what may Jordan and the Bulls. Great it's just such the Bulls won championships because of Michael Jordan Scottie. Pippen and Dennis Rodman's basketball ability. Not because Michael Jackson Michael Jackson not Michael Jordan was an asshole. A ridiculous like so. Tim Duncan One. How many rings was he an animal? Like what kind of ridiculous narrative is put?.

"The you know who knows if preseason start on time etc how many preseason games how much. How much time would what would a football player? Need to get ready for the season if it start on time. And he brought up an excellent point. I hadn't thought of that. Every person in the League is different. Because they're all working out differently right now. He's in Wisconsin on his ranch. Which you know God only knows what Kinda. Jimmy's got up there where he said other guys might just have to bands and they're running at their high school track so even for the players. You know you brought up mcvay in the coaches. Even for the for the players. From a training standpoint there's a huge pendulum there and it's completely different team two team. I know one team that has requested that players take a photograph of the scale. And tell me how to weigh in every day and send it in to the trainers just so we could keep your weight maintenance and like another team who says all right two hours two days a week will do zoom stuff and will have guest speakers and trust you guys do your work on your own like there's a whole other strategy going on now with how you're gonNA manage the quarantine in the workout both mentally and then of course like you just mentioned what. Jj Watt physically. Because quite honestly if you are a player who lives in the actual city like some eagles. I know live in an apartment buildings with you. Know maybe twelve hundred square feet in a family like that's a very different situation to get your get your body in shape than what J. J. Watt stealing within the cabinet in the woods. So I didn't hear what you just said. I've been shaking ever since you said you have to take a picture of your weight and send it entrust. Could you imagine I know have you have?

Listen if if the kid is like crying or making noise while wishing video I'll tell robin stuff some shrimp. Alfredo Dana's Alibaba and we'll be fine. Like just let it roll very very early on in this thing because we all remember the video of the guy on the BBC kid. Crying very early on this thing. I was watching. Nfl LIVE ON ESPN. And it was like right at the start of free agency and Matt Hasselbeck doing something from his basement and you see the treadmill in the background and the phone shaking like wild and I like what is I kinda like it. It's so budget. And Hasselbeck is a former star flared all the stuff and he's so smart and I texted on like I don't know what was going on but I love the fact that you're living life like the rest of US needs like right. My sixteen year old daughter was filming that on on the IPHONE and Mike. Yes that's how it should be. That's what life is exactly and because in this situation now the old games are in place so you and kyle. I'll just say this. I wrote a column early on this probably in mid March when this all first started and I made a plea every network every sport every network old games. We don't need new. I was coming off where like ESPN was popping up this classic NFL game and it was chiefs rams from last year. No I need I think. The primary I said is anything from nineteen. Eighty to nineteen ninety-five..

"Hope you are all safe and healthy and staying in and surviving the madness that we have been going through good not good great actually going to pump it up. Great podcast today. We've got Peter Schrager from the NFL network and Fox sports on the show. We covered a million topics into broadcasting booths. Three people versus people who we think could be good for Monday night football. We like what we don't like from announcers talked about watching old games. We talked about the last dance. When in depth on Michael Jordan were talked about some issues. We might have with the last dance that you won't hear anywhere else because ESPN people are not going to criticize it We discussed the NFL schedule in terms of Christmas and Thanksgiving. We discussed What we're going through here a little bit to quarantine and what how that will affect NFL teams and what NFL front offices. Think about what's going on so we get into a little bit of that and really covered a bunch of topics with Peter Schrager. Who of course is on Good Morning Football Monday through Friday on the NFL Network and works for Fox sports and the sidelines for them as well? So that is this week show. It's really good. Peter was great last week. I in Eagle from. Cbs was on the show. Two weeks ago Chris. Long and three weeks ago Michael Imperatively and Steve Sherpa from the soprano. So if you missed any of those you can dip into the archives and give those listen. You're not a subscriber to the media. Podcast pleased the subscribe. Button helps me tremendously. And that's it. Let's get to this week. Show right now with the always fun. Peter Schrager Four. Okay join me now. One of my favorites from the best morning show on television also from Fox sports. Peter Schrager hasn't been on in a while strikes going. Jimmy how we doing. Thanks for inviting me onto the podcast. You you know you have an open invite anytime you you have so many good like pop. Culture takes always loves mixing. It up with you. I gotTa thank you though. All you guys doing podcast. I swear an every week listener when it's non quarantine time but the audio medium of podcasts. I find to be a lot more palatable than sitting in front of a TV all day. When you're in the house on the couch. I like being able to go outside listening. Walking and your podcast has been great. The Iron Eagle one. I must say as required. Listen one of the great person held. He's of our game and you guys did a fantastic job with him. I appreciate that I get zero credit. I was tremendous just him imitating raftery and Chris Russo and the stories he has Jerry Jones He. He was phenomenal last week. He really was one of the one of the best guys in sports media. That's you always hear that about everyone and we'll just I mean hell we're doing. Let's just start off and on an Iron Eagle conversation. I did preseason for the jets this year. It was me. Anthony Becht an iron eagle eye on his like a ship. Captain out at sea like just guiding the broadcast could not be more encouraging. But I go back so far with I in that like when I first started doing this in three or four. He knew I was a nets fan because I would call in. Wfan talk about New Jersey Nets basketball. He was the voice of the nets in one day. We were emailing and he was like want to go to a game here. You go got tickets to a nets game at the Brendan Byrne arena allow. I an eagle. This was back when I was like blogging. For whatever website would take it That is salt of the earth. That's a good man right there. That's a great yeah. Did you know that Mike? Breen us when he when he when he does the Knicks Games. Now I don't know if he does it with the national. Espn game the Knicks Games. Before the game is he goes to the like the rafters finds like dad and his on mom mom and dad and kit and brings them down to like lower seats. Does that forever game fantastic? I get a I can't speak for the analysts because they're usually ex players and coaches and there's always a little bit of a guard but those guys I would be really challenged to find a play by play guy at the top levels the Mike Breen. The irony goes the Joe. Bucks gymnasts who are assholes like those guys are genuinely like incredibly hardworking working people and some of the nicest guys I've ever met Kenny. Albert. He's like the nicest dude you'll ever those get Kevin Burkhart. Just neither guy grinders but like totally get it and are self aware and understand that. It's the game not really them. That people are tuning in to watch and stuff like that. You always hear stories. It's usually the play by play guy above and beyond and and there's nobody and you know outside of the players. Obviously there's nobody in sports who gets more shit than the play by play guys because people think they hate their teams they make one mistake idiots like me blow it up and write a column about it. It's the the microscope is on those especially in the NFL. No and it's this. It's I can do what you're doing like corners talking or collins where it's talking the guy at home knows. I didn't have the career Chris Collins Kurt Warner had but if Mike Tariq owes talking like well who's what did he ever play. I could talk like that. None An. It's probably the hardest thing to do is play by play. I don't even know if I could try to it. Have you ever had interest in doing color? I Know Your Network Fox has the number two spot open right now with with Burqa. You WanNa make a pitch to Jacob Ullman or Eric shanks here. Is that anything you'd ever want to do? Of course but I think with me it would be more as like the Kornheiser. Dennis Miller not necessarily with wisecracks but like I did preseason for the rams two years ago with Nate Burleson and Anderson Leon up in the booth being the third man in and in a lot of times I do sidelines chime in but I love. I would love the opportunity to get up in the booth maybe not on a full-time GIG for a game here game there because I speak to every team President general manager coach and it's not just in the production meeting. I do think there's a place for the writer still in like Kornheiser had that opportunity. I'm trying to think if there's any others simmons. I think did a couple of games in the college game and he did studio show like you don't see many of guys who are like sports media guys who are connected being putting up with like the Monday night gig. They're talking about like put Pat McAfee as that guy. I think. Curious to hear Schefter in the booth and he's got all that knowledge and the insight and talks to everybody and it'd be curious to hear some of the commerce whose like I have no problem share in that stuff on good morning football every morning. I think that broadcasting refund but no I'm not gonNA pitch for anything more than what they wanna give me. I'm quite happy with what I do at Fox but you would. You wouldn't mind doing a game as an analyst. I Know Jacob all been listening to this podcast. So maybe he can hear this. And let's get Peter King. Come across as of me saying Oh. I know what I'm saying. I'm not breaking down any replays. I'm not telling you what happened in the three four scheme. But if you WANNA know why Brandon. Bean has a connection with Sean McDermott. I'm your guy you know I can give you the back story. Give you a little more information. I think you'd see you sound smarter. The next morning at the water cooler after listening to a broadcast with one of the guys in my roles as opposed to at not having it so my make it a A case myself no but if there is a guy a writer or anything I would. I wouldn't mind hearing some thoughts on a broadcast every once in a while from someone other than the X. Player the ex coach does. It's it's amazing to me that you've brought this up because I didn't really plan on getting into the Monday night. Football thing and the Fox. And he's a number two analyst thing. I was saving so I'll make about me for a minute and pull back the curtain so like When I wrote my column today on. We're taping this Tuesday afternoons. When I wrote train of thoughts on Tuesday morning I was gonNA write about Monday night football. And what they should do because they formally announced test. Burger won't be back then. I was surfing around the web and I saw a lot of people a lot of media. People have done that so I'm like you know what? Let me save that for maybe two Wednesday or Thursday when it could send out a little more and then I had this story about. Lamar Jackson Needs Shrimp. Alfredo before every single game. That's certainly more important exactly. It was like I can mention the office so I went with that So I'm going to write about this Wednesday Thursday but I'll discuss it with you on a so because I think I saw my good friend Richard Daichi Britain. Something that said. Espn should go with. I think Steve leaving my play by play. And then I think you mentioned riddick and I forgot who it was whatever whatever it was named three people and I despise the three person booth in almost every sport especially the NFL. And I think if you look at the good teams today which are obviously Buchan Aikman and Nansen Romo and Michaels and cal. It's two people but the way you're presenting the third person I think see. I think maybe maybe thought maybe they do that with when they had bugger on the crane. But I do think if you have your traditional play-by-play person traditional analyst and then someone like you who can come in with the anecdotes and the stories about all the people you talk to during the week that works but when you have two people in the booth trying to analyze a three yard run its Bertel. Yes so I go back and forth on it. Because sometimes it's worked like I worked on a crew couple years ago where it was play by play with Thom Brennaman and then Charles Davis and Chris Spielman and they're completely opposite types of analysts and in really worked like and they were so selfless giving up half their analysis to do it but that has to be the case. It has to be where the two guys are willing to cede to the other and say okay. Well you're going to take the lead on this one and all echo you. It's it can't work in a in a in a Into Silos I can't have. Here's the play then. Here's analysts X. Giving his thoughts and here's analysts Z. Not even right bonding. What Xhang and doing what he takes. Now to me Dennis Miller I went back because now is the time to do it. If you can go back and watch old broadcasts like I went back. I watched the jets dolphins game the famous jumbo. Elliott game and like Dennis Miller is on the call and I didn't hate it but like I could see where it would great after sixteen weeks where you've got everyone can talk about Miller now and his politics and I'm not going there especially on a podcast that that you know twitter listens to but at the time he's referencing seventeen eighty s you know comedy from Russian oligarchs but it was unique it was different and then I almost wish there was another year where we could see. Okay how this go kornheiser. I went back and listen to the two thousand six. It was Mike Tirico Joe thighs men. Tony Kornheiser two thousand.

"The geico Fox Sports radio studios to get us caught up on everything that happened today in the world to spoil yes what's up Steve hello gentlemen and we'll have a lot of NFL news in a moment I like the fact that you brought up the fact that the pistons did not shake the opponent's hands after they lost to the bulls in the playoffs it is so weak and Isaac can try and explain it away saying Hey we didn't happen in there they just showed clips of it happening in that era in fact from the team that you beat the previous two years so that is there's just so many examples around nineteen ninety of how the pistons were great on the scoreboard and not great if they're actually giving the finger when this is another example of that and the fact that the whole Jordan rules things on the one hand you have course it's great to devise something the basketball nuts and bolts that they pointed out in the document of not letting him drive baseline pushing him out to the elbow great give it a shot but really the the concept became with the pistons just have a series of flagrant files because that player is so much better than we are this is what we hate about sports actually log in it's like the home run hitter where you just throw at him it's because he's better than you deal with it in some actual sports way it's what we do it's what we hate about soccer where everybody gets filed on break aways why because he's better than you it's just I didn't ever could I still can't added to it and I again giving other sports examples of how it just shouldn't be that way if we're on the court how about trying to win like you know be good at your sport Jordan was just better I mentioned last week on the show how I love watching the early bowls Jordan highlights and it really showed people how awesome he was when he had nothing around him then there was just a stand out quote in tonight's I think episode three he said Pippen's injured robin just got kicked out you left me alone out there yeah I believe it was five on five still Michael here it should be the last exactly a lot of F. bombs by the way in tonight's and I know they're running it on ESPN two also and so yeah there's an added on another channel but let's be honest ESPN's ratings until this past week I've just been atrocious in the last month and a half so they could have run this on four different channels they've got space let's just say that so if if we're like when they were wanting to run it in June I'm not sure if there would have been a secondary jail speaking as an editor it's just lazy to leave everything but once again I think we all agree those first two episodes last weekend were great and these next two tonight were great and I don't know what the numbers are going to be but the ratings were super for last weekend so probably more the same tonight and deservedly so we have N.

"You know college Nfl College Basketball Stadiums Every morning I would get out there and do it. I'll tell you my favorite one was penn state. It was a Friday morning about seven thirty in the morning. It was thirty five degrees outside but I was like I don't care how cold oldest doing it and I was at the highest point at Penn State and there was zero human beings besides me the entire stadium and it was one of those things where you're just like wow you know first of all you think about the access you talk about access right. Who has access to a stadium when there's nobody in there On a Friday morning and then to yeah. We'll do that so it's always been something Kinda cool that I've done our chat. Do you want to give the listeners. Just a sense of like what kind of training regimen you have to You're embarking on right now to run the most famous triathlon. That's out there so excited so Yeah I raised. I raised thirty thousand dollars last year for the IRONMAN foundation through. Yeah my Auction that I do every year. And so that's sort of the fund raising minimum to get into Kona and so I was able to to get my bid for Kona and which the world championships for iron man. It's the super bowl of iron man's it's in Hawaii. It's the toughest race because of the island temperatures in the wind and all of this stuff I have never done a full ironman man. I trained for one but unfortunately The event was cancelled two weeks before the event because of Hurricane Michael it was it was in the Panama City area And so I'm really nervous. You know I I'm embarking on a huge undertaking. Not I mean it's it's it's physically taxing. It's mentally taxing. It takes me away from my kids. I went to some really dark places places when I was training for my for my ironman. A couple of years ago And it's hard. It's hard to sit on a bike for seven hours on a Friday and not let your mind wander and ask ask why you're doing this I am so excited to be out there and some of the people that I've met along the way during my ironman journey. They keep me on pace. I mean and I'm talking people in wheelchairs or people fighting cancer or you know brothers pulling you know other brothers who who are unable to compete themselves and it's just incredible the human beings that I've met along the way and and they really kind of keep you going Jamie. I feel like it'd be awesome. If you could actually cover this like your good. She could be a transition. I would probably be on the sidelines with the beer in one hand and my phone and the other like those that that's just a convertible next to her waving to her like just chilling out backstage Shannon. Great Work here my my motto. When I'm like running people always asked me like about like winning beating this time or whatever? I'm like beer tent not medical tent. That's where I wanna be after the race. So I'm just GONNA go out and I have priorities priorities people but that nine all honesty show. I mean what you're training for is just like it's really hard to process like the I remember number some of like seeing the end of Conan like people sort of just like crashing through that finish line after just going just seems inconceivable so That's that's incredible and best of luck that you'll be able to pull up. Pull it off. Maybe we'll do a creator before Kona or right after and I can tell you how it went. Yeah yes Shannon's ability to suffer for hours on end unbelievable this girl you know capacity. Yeah well I am too and I wouldn't have yeah. I would not trained for more than an hour a day. You're just What she does? She's just she's like Superhuman Jamie the other day I shoveled in seven degree weather does does that count as a kind of an incredible G. Minute Shannon is about your heart rate up a little bit like we're I'm your Jamie Urine Indianapolis I think Greg or I'm in Toronto Shannon. We're talking to YOU CHARLOTTE. I live in Charlotte. Philip Shannon. Jamie I gotta be honest. Having Shannon wins the weather. So we're we're in good shape. All right listen I have nothing else for you to. Is there anything else you would like to add before Before I let you go on what will be incredibly busy two weeks for both of you know I mean yeah I mean it's a credible busy ten months. I mean that's the crazy thing. Richard is like the NAP car season. Is We start now. We don't end till Thanksgiving and so when you talk about like those marathon things right. It's it's it's a long one is a very very long one. But it's awesome to go on this journey and see how it kind of things that we're talking about right now or the things that were going to be talking about the end of the year. Yeah and and Richard. I think it's interesting. A lot of young girls. I know talk to me and Shannon and and they wonder is it possible to have it. ooh Can you have a career like this. That takes you away from home and I think that we're both examples that you can have it all and we might make it look easy at times. Finisher attack is and I mean balancing balancing everything. I think the reason. We're both so into fitness. Is it helps balance you mentally because it pulls you in so many directions. I wouldn't change a thing but I also would say that it takes a lot of work but you can have all you can have a family and a loving husband and a career that you love so much that you wouldn't give up for anything that's a good is a good way to end and on that are Jamie little as I mentioned has been with a Fox's NASCAR coverage for a number of years now and you'll see her on Pit Road for the NASCAR Cup series NASCAR xfinity series.

"Right as I mentioned that the top Jamie little joined Fox's Nascar our coverage in two thousand fifteen to cover pit road forty NASCAR Cup series as well as the NASCAR xfinity series. She's a reporter on Nascar Race Day a she's part of pretty much most of Fox's race coverage in addition to this. She's one of the hosts. Yes I think it's host one of the host of America's top dog on Anne and she will also interview love this Jimmy Award winning dog owners as part a Fox. Sports One's coverage of the Westminster Kennel Club dog show prior to that Jamie little was at ESPN ABC for thirteen years. Here's where you saw her on their Nascar Coverage indie coverage X. Games and a number of other stuff. I'm glad she is here. Sure before we talked to her and let us get Shannon bakes immense bile man with this could take forever shadow and have to cut this down. Shannon's baked join Fox in July of two thousand sixteen esteem to cover a variety of sports. Obviously she's got a major presence on Nascar but you also see her on College Football College basketball and now the NFL. In twenty nine thousand nine choose she was named the host of Fox's NASCAR race coverage handles all their anchor duties for the Nascar Cup series and the NASCAR xfinity series as well as a pre-race shows post ratios. She is co host of NASCAR race. Hub which F S ONCE-DAILY NASCAR show. And then this year or last year. Now since we're in twenty twenty She worked the NFL As a sideline reporter on the team of Thom Brennaman and Chris Spielman Prior to joining Fox Shannon was at. ESPN for a very long time. We're again if you're listening to this podcast. You know her work. She did a Lotta sideline stuff for a college football and And a number of other Sports they will both within this. The reason for this podcast they will both have major roles at Daytona five hundred which comes up at the end of this week as we released this. PODCAST I and obviously there are major major figures Fox's NASCAR coverage and I am pleased to be joined by Jamie little and Shannon speak. Welcome back guys. It's been a while that you were on this podcast. Thank you for having us. Yes last so much fun. We're waiting for the call back. I always appreciate talking to you. Richard Yeah that's it. Yeah the podcast is over the really district BIOS basically just your accomplishments entry fantastic job by both of you take all right so let us start start. Let's start with you Jamie As I said in terms of introducing some of the stuff you've done you both. You and Shannon have both been part of broadcast as teams from multiple of sports events from college football to the NFL. And in your case even the dog show. But what I'm interested in is from your perspective. Active what is unique about broadcasting NASCAR versus all the all the other sort of events in sports. You've been part of. I feel like there's so many moving parts literally that other sports don't necessarily how when you're a sideline reporter in shanking. Speak to this much better than I can't. It's more controlled old. You kind of have your set storylines and who exactly you want to talk to. And that's basically a handful of people but in NASCAR. You have so many people that you can talk you so many any different people that maybe going into race. You had no idea that you're going to want to hear from the crew chief of the ninety five car but because something spectacular happened in the race that suddenly becomes the big story so your story can go forty different ways in any given race and there's so many things that can happen and on top of that you're dealing with in some cases life and death. This is a dangerous sport. We don't see injuries that often anymore. Thankfully but I think as a reporter you always have to keep your head as we say. Keep your head on swivel because because this is a dangerous sport and you know that that can happen and that that danger does loom suffer you Shannon. How would you answer that? Yeah I think Jamie you know definitely hit on something. In terms of like constantly constantly. Changing things are constantly changing. You might go into a race thinking that one guy's a favorite and then all of a sudden especially at a place like Daytona where where anyone could be running up front at any time And I think it's certainly give me a different perspective in terms of doing the NFL. I I don't feel I. I feel like there are some You know some some storylines some some prepackaged things that I had in two games with Every Sunday but I'm constantly I'm using those is and I know that that the evolution of the game from on the sidelines in terms of things that are happening within the game Maybe being part of NASCAR and sort of following those storylines helped prepare me. I'm never sitting down on the NFL sidelines. I'm I'm always running around from one side line by line and I think it's given me an opportunity to kind of know which direction And where some of those stories might be but I think honestly Richard One of the biggest things is just the human connection in other sports comp- compared to Nascar once those guys climbing that car visually usually you do not have any unless they do an in-car camera and they still have those helmets on you. Don't get the visual connection that you do. In other sports you know on the sidelines of the guys. Come over. They take off their helmets. You see them talking to coaches you see their reactions. They're interacting interacting with fans with their teammates and NASCAR. I think is extremely difficult because you do not not have that personal interaction. You're reliant on the radio And things that you can just see the car doing on the track show. I WanNa stick with you and just ask you a question about preparation preparation when you are when you are preparing to do A NASCAR broadcast versus. Let's say and understand. The jobs could be different different sideline verse host but when you're working on you know like a quote unquote more traditional sport is your how how if it is different. How is your preparation different to prep prep for a NASCAR broadcast versus prepping? For another sport I you know I lived Nascar for so long and I feel like mass car does kind of it touches on the history of the sport in so many different ways so in a lot of ways you almost have to be a historian. Historian we're in in sports other sports that I cover. I feel like it's so in the moment right. There are certainly those times where you reflect on moments but it's so in the moment and and with Nascar I it's a lot of You know who's won the Daytona five hundred. How many times that they want it? The history of this race the history of the sport. The history of what this drivers favors done and I do feel like. There's a lot more of that that I kind of prepare Jamie. We'll tell you that when she runs around you know in the Infield in the morning and she's in the garage and talking to crew chief and stuff like that it certainly is more like. Hey how was your car this weekend. more specific to kind of things that were going on in the weekend but again I think the biggest thanks for me to remember is that I've got I've got such great support with Larry and Jamie and those are the guys who can talk about the nuts and bolts. J just got out of the car last year. I've never been inside of a racecar. He can talk about what the drivers specifically feeling. And then obviously Larry being on top of the pillbox for so many years and still has you know so many connections and very much The you know the pulse of what's going on inside that garage but for me. It's it's definitely studying those guys up and and you know they. You hear it all the time Richard for the pre pre game show On the NFL. I it's like we want people to think like they're coming in to us just having a conversation about racing so to me. I think it's very important to be prepared. And kind of Noelene. Wean everything about this race and the drivers and the history and all that stuff so I can make those guys have as much success as possible or Jimmy. I want to start. I want both of you to answer this but I wanNA start with you because I think people really find this interesting. 'cause there's a lot of people who listen to my podcast probably if they watch one NASCAR race it's Daytona but they don't really have a sense of like the kind of work schedule that you and Shannon with have so as specific as you can and let's start with Let's start. We're taping this on a Wednesday. But let's start with the Monday where this podcast will be released. which is sort of speed speed week at Daytona in the lead up to Daytona What can you take me through your day to day as you lead up up to be on the race broadcast on that Sunday? Sure I always tell people covering NASCAR. It's not just a job. It's basically a lifestyle because it is part of your life every day eight because there's so much news and even though I'm not on the road. Monday Tuesday Wednesday. There's still conference calls. They're still news coming out. You have to be listening to the program. SIRIUSXM affects them hearing. What's happening and going on the pulse? I'm watching race out every night and you know for next week for for the Daytona five hundred. I'll be at the Westminster dog. This show which is like the the Super Bowl for dog shows Monday and Tuesday but at the same time. There's a lot of stuff happening in Daytona. So I need to make sure that over the weekend. I'm watching what's happening sitting there taking notes Monday night or Monday afternoon. I will have a conference call for the NASCAR truck series race because for the first time in my career I have never covered a truck truck race and I get to do that for the first time on Friday so I have to learn a whole new crop of drivers and crew chiefs. So that's on my plate for next week. So that's happening on Monday and then When I when I land literally Daytona on Wednesday you hit the ground running? It's running over to. There's a big Fox production shoot at the airport hangar. Right there outside the track so I want to go in there right away and to start talking to drivers who are over there. Start getting the poll signed on the season and their car and what they're thinking at that point they will have already been on on track Iraq so It is all information all the time. When it comes to NASCAR's you now it has the shortest off?.

"And when I was in high school we had a radio. TV program in Indianapolis. So I started working on the radio and TV station air when I was sixteen junior in high school so I had some yeah. I had some great opportunities at a young age which was huge for me to gain perspective and experience. And you know the Indianapolis five hundred was something I enjoyed. And you can't escape that you know when you're an Indian of course that was late eighties early nineties. I mean it was in its heyday and it was just such a big deal so I was a fan and then I went to college in Southern Indiana. My first job was in southern. Indiana Owensboro Kentucky was a part of our TV market. That's when darrow there was still racing. You know Michael was getting going the green brothers Jeremy Mayfield so we covered. NASCAR is a part of our local coverage because there was so much interest for the local connection that Askar. That's when I really started getting into Nascar and then a friend of mine started a weekly radio show that was was about racing asked me to host it i. I was not qualified but I did it anyway. And at that point I'm a local. TV guide that you're talking about racing using on TV. I'm doing a radio show. That's about racing. I started making connections to local race tracks. I started track announcing meeting. Folks audition with him are in radio and and Kinda the rest is history. It all started in the fall of two thousand. I auditioned with them are in summer. Two thousand thousand did a couple of races fall of two thousand and then in two thousand one is when I really started working heavily with him are in in in pretty much grew from there. You have some experience calling some indy. Indy Indy five hundred zero. What turn announcer? You also did some radio broadcasting. At what point did it really seem like and you kind of touched on it. They're like when Nascar really kind of became like all right. That's the way I'm going. Well I in turn for a guy might king and Tara Indiana who's a TV guy. He ended up getting the job. Is the voice Indianapolis five hundred. I hadn't seen years. I was working my first truck race for Marin I had never never worked for him are an I literally showed up the hand me the shirt. I put it on him walk into the garage and it was a Texas and Indycar was there. I run into Mike King. Mike as you work for Moran. I'm like yeah. Even though he didn't know I'd never caught a race for him. Aren immediately says we won Indianapolis people to be a part of the five hundred broadcast. Would you be interested in working. The indy five hundred. I I went from never having worked race for him are in to basically being asked. You WanNa work the indy five hundred. And I'm like Oh my gosh. Like is a kid. He had the grew up in India and the magnitude of Indianapolis Motor speedway radio network. I mean I was blown away. So that's how that opportunity came about and I would imagine would let me go l. each year and I did it for six years. Would go and on Memorial Day weekend go in and do the five hundred and then I started doing more and more work on on the TV side. And that's when that relationship Kinda had to end with the Indianapolis Motor speedway radio network and I really just became full on NASCAR. Two thousand thousands six two thousand seven in that that timeframe and it wasn't until I think you were telling me about two thousand. What eleven that you transitioned came down to North Karen Ride Yup? Yeah yeah so we were still speed at that time and in two thousand eleven. I was coming over here every weekend. And doing a show called speed center. I would fly out of Indiana on Thursday nights. been the weekend here during the studio show and go home on Sunday night in about halfway through two thousand eleven Steve Craddock who who's vice president speed at the time came in and said you know we're not gonNA make you move but I think your life would be a lot easier and it would be a lot better for us if you lived in Charlotte and and my wife and I had to talk about that and that was a very difficult decision to make but we we decided this is the right thing. And and so in December of eleven we moved down to North Carolina. And we've been here ever since and means less time on the road which has been a really good thing for everybody body but sixteen you start getting the taste of broadcasting and doing some radio stuff. At what point did maybe the light bulb go off that. Okay this is something I want to pursue a career career in honestly it was before that I think I mean I when I was really young I just knew I wanna be a part of sports. I just loved that modest. Couldn't get enough and I'd mute the TV gene called the game. Because I was a nerd complete nerd and then when I went to college and started doing games It just it was just obvious. This is what what I wanted to do. And and I worked for college owned a couple of radio stations and I'd do games for him and do the the news in the mornings and whatever and I remember when I finished college Is Making that decision to go out and try to start my career and he really pushed me to go to work for him and and just be a local sales guy for radio and in addition sports and and his thing was look. You can do play by play here. Play by plays play by play. You don't have to go somewhere else. It's going to be a difficult road. And he was right. Everything he said was so so right he tried to get me to go the business route and I just. I was too stubborn. I just had to go see if there were opportunities to make and I got out and local TV and met the right people and then eventually got got into network radio and then that turned into stuff on on the TV side. So it's been an interesting jer journey and a lot of fortunate breaks along the way but that's kind of how it all happened. Did you have an idea like when you're young and you start envisioning the future and things you want to do if you could have scripted opted it. Did you have like an idea of what your ultimate dream job would have been at the time you know. Yeah probably Vin. It would have been to be College basketball in NFL. I grew up on college. Basketball in. Indiana was huge college basketball fan In College football and so it probably would've been football and basketball. Those were the things I had the most experience in I was the biggest fan of and so on. It wouldn't have been NASCAR but as I was kinda starting to get into the racing thing. There was a bio. I'll never forget in the USA Today of all of the NFL announced teams going into whatever season. It was probably early. This was probably late nineties mid to late nineties and the one thing I noticed about almost all of those. NFL announcers is they weren't exclusive NFL guys when it gave their bio they either did track and field or they did boxing or they horse racing they all had this lesser known sport that required a unique skill all set and the light went off to me if you're ever going to get to do college basketball. Nfl College football. You probably need to be able to do other things. And that's what I thought you know. What auto racing might be it for me and I really at that point realized this might be the way to go? And now it's become predominantly. What I do I mean I I do a couple of college basketball games here and there? I've done some college football for Fox. But they see me as a motorsports guy and that's okay but I never twenty twenty five years ago would have thought my career would be a good place and it would be all around NASCAR. I just just wouldn't believe lead that I was GONNA ask if you're still doing the college stuff. Yeah occasionally yeah. They need someone every once in a while. They'll call me and and sometimes I wrestle with. I need to do more of that and I would enjoy that in love to take that on and time will tell what the need and where they need me in whatever but there's no doubt at this stage of my life I mean my. My bread is buttered with Nash. Car Car for sure you and you've covered. I mean you've been involved in every all three series. You mentioned it. You know you've done Marin stuff you've done radio stuff you've done turn announcing stuff stuff TNT. Speed Fok's I mean what I think even contributed Dave disdain. Had Wind Tunnel pretty much had done a lot already and I. I'm I'm so curious because when you already look at how full your bio is and everything you get to do today when you sit sit back and look I mean could you imagine that it would be what has been your career would be already this fulfilling. No way I mean like I you know I I don't every year we get the bio sent us to approve it if there needs to be any updates and so on and I've gotten Ryley Marley read it right you know it's just like I'm sure it's fine like nothing change. You know. Go on with life but I have to say that you know timing is everything in and that is a no. It's Cliche but it's so true and I think about how accidental it was that I got into racing in the first place when I started hosting a local focal radio show in Owensboro Kentucky and the relationships that introduced me to in the doors that those relationships opened and then once you walk through those doors the opportunities that that were created and I have to say going back to me being versatile versatile and having all these experiences in different areas of broadcasting. It's all just paid off and you realize how coveted people that can do multiple things. These are because it just makes life easy. It's like okay we'll just let's just plug it in here. And once you have these certain broadcast principles you can apply them in the studio or apply I am on pit road during a pre racer applying to boot doing play by play and one just becomes an extension of another and and everything kind of works out so so the timing has been right and because I've been fortunate to have a lot of those opportunities. I've kind of built this foundation. That's allowed me to stay around for a good period of time. It's funny you mentioned the Bio 'cause I when I got yours I had to read it a couple of times because I'm like I honestly did not realize it was full as it was and that you had been doing doing this for as long as you had been doing this. I think sometimes it kind of runs together and you don't realize just how long time period has been and you know as you said. I said I mean it goes back to the early two thousands and then again. You've had your hand you've been involved in trucks. You now are doing extremely stuff. You're involved in a cup stuff. So it's I read did your bio and I'm like this is one of the fullest BIOS. I have ever seen you know. It's the amount of time is what creates that. Certainly but what puts in perspective I think to me now. Jimmy Johnson's GONNA retire. I remember I was there when Jimmy Johnson one that xfinity race race in two thousand one at Chicagoland speedway and they take two tires late and track position. He wins and I'm thinking I watched the full cycle. I remember when in Kabul was told. You can't drive to young you can't drive and now Kabua's won a couple of championships and likely I'll probably watch him through the end of his career. Those those kinds of things put into perspective. How long you been around Kurt? Busch's and other one is entering his twentieth year. In Cup. I remember when he won a truck race at California and Greg. Before was the champion and Kurt won the race and they're both driving for Russian celebrating. The it's amazing to have had a front row seat for some of the historical things that have happened in the sport and just to be able to recall it as everyday life instead of something you read in a book or read online or or whatever so that special and it makes the job easier quite quite honestly you know. Do you think you I hear you started talking about all these memories. Do you keep journals or do you keep stuff to look back at everything when you've gotten to cover do you think you'll ever do. Maybe a book or something one day because again you have all of these memories from great moments in racing you know I don't oh I've done a really bad job at journaling this year. I've started to do that more than I ever have. Because the one thing I would say I'm guilty of is I don't appreciate gate some of the things I've gotten to do in the moment and then I look back and think oh my gosh that was unbelievable. You got to experience that you know you're you're humbled by your own experiences and you're disappointed by the fact that you didn't enjoy the walk while you were in the midst of it and so I think this year I've I've tried to be better about daily journaling about experiences last week we were at the Super Bowl in Miami. Doing all of our shows there. We had some great moments fine on the air right as fine but behind the scenes and in the meeting room and out to dinner those are where you create the memories in the moments..

"You want your hometown guys doing it. So I understand the whole you know if you're the cubs in their fans you you want Len Kasper To be doing the Games and Yeah I WanNa John Kelly and Darren Pang to be doing the Blues Games because I know the routing along with me and they're living and dying with every goal and and every penalty so I i. It's good perspective for me and And and makes me understand that bigger picture even better the last one here. Joe Is your wife. Michelle absorb as my listeners. Not Pronounce her last name. Professional last name is that right. Yeah buys listener. Then she went to buys ner buck and talk. Okay yeah there you go okay so Michelle buys ner buck for though and certainly if you're an NFL fan interviewer you've watched and seeing her reports on ESPN. She's really really gifted in sort of long term. Long form feature profiles. And what's interesting to me Joe. Is that you you've worked at Fox essentially your entire professional life. Michelle is obviously worked at a number of different places. And while I don't want you to reveal veal. Anything out of pocket here you you now get a glimpse into ESPN through your partner. and I wonder if that is just interesting to you given that you have worked for whether you want to call them their competitor or whether you want to call them obviously a contemporary. You've worked for the other guys for so long. Zack has been an interesting prospect to get a little insight into the ESPN University universe. That you were not necessarily part of yeah. It's a great question question. I and I've never really thought about it that way but yeah I. I've gotten a peek behind the curtain at another network and become friends with A lot of her bosses losses and and text with them Because I'm I'm just I'm a guy that that I think you know obviously have been in. TV A long time. But but I'm I'm I'm no threat to anybody over there. 'cause I'm at Fox and so whether it's tough mark winters some of the other people that I'm friendly with you know the the funny thing is i. I guess this is a bit of a departure from question. I'll get to it in one second but the guy who she's closest with on on the pre-game on Monday nights set and the guy who when I show up to support my wife who I ended up talking to the most is Randy Moss Who you know I had the whole? That's disgusting thing and I still if I check on twitter that'll be on my twitter feed at some point. You know once a day and you know we've laughed at it. He was at Fox. He's a great guy he's he's invited Michelle and and maybe To his home to fish. And I you know it's it's just funny. How how life kind of brings things full? We'll circle and gives you a different perspective as the years go by and so yeah I understand the inner workings I think better than than most now at ESPN. I hear my my wife complaints. I hear I hear what she loves about. Espn we all have them. It doesn't matter where you work But it's an entirely different structure you know Fox has maintained kind of that family feeling If you will and I went from working for David Hill and had gorin run to work in for Eric shanks now Brad Zieger And and you know I can call them and and then I can call them and and complain they can call me invent. They can call me and complain about something I'm doing and it feels very you know non-threatening So it's it's a good good feel at Fox and I feel like you know my wife's work's her tail off I did. NFL Network now ESPN. And I know both those structures because uh I've heard from her what was like. NFL Not working what it is like now it espn. She loves being. They're they're great to her She's got that same same feel with the people. She's in direct contact with the. Yeah I it is interesting to finally get to see what another network is like and I'll just say I'm I'm happy with where I am and don't plan on going anywhere until they kicked me out of the door Joe. Buck really doesn't need much introduction. These Longtime Fox sports broadcaster lead broadcast on the NFL. Mlb Fox Coverage Golf Catch him on Thursday night football on Sunday. Night football with Troy Aikman and Erin Andrews and the rest rest of the Ricci. Zion's which Russo grouped. I will mention For the audience. Just as you're on here Either reschedules podcast. A couple of times in Joe's total it'll pro- in Working with did not have to do that at all. He's not being paid for this podcast. We'll probably hurt his career in fact so I appreciate Joe You You coming coming things happen. I'm here to Accommodate and and I like doing it because I feel like you get the business. You get stuff out of me that other the people that other people don't and You know it's it's another way for people to get to know me better so I'm I'm happy to do it anytime you want. It's more it. Just you do a lot of podcasts. And I think actually. That's a very very whether intentional or not.

"Of other people who i think have been on the national beat and built built up a lot of relationships with a lot of people over time where even if you may not be able to quote them on the record because there's a handful of schools and and a lot of these places come from this nick sabin bella check world where head coaches the only one who's really allowed to comment so sometimes you know a lot of stuff but you can't maybe you can't put it in somebody's words or quote them because they're not allowed to speak on the record for it doesn't mean you can't get that perspective and insight i mean in a lot of times that's even more lord invaluable because those places are so limited in to what people would get out of there <hes> so there is so there or as bad side of it and i do think and this is an athletic <hes> comment and so you know. This is gonna sound self serving but i do believe it and i think it's surreal. <hes> i think what helped our college football coverage is that so many other places including the place the three of us all worked at and and i believe came to before the athletic which is sl have scaled-back they do not often for they rarely are able to send reporters out to campuses to get you know to do the digging on stories. You know e._s._p._n. Scaled back its coverage. Iskin dot com <hes> scaled back its coverage considerably. <hes> yahoo doesn't seem to do as much of that. You know the u._s._a. Today doesn't seem to do as much of that so i think i think what what that's done is traded an environment where a lot of schools on the flip side of it are open to say hey come on in <hes> <hes> we would. We'd love to have you. You know if you're gonna you know if you're interested in telling this story or this. Is you know if i pitched a story or a while back on a player tau they were the last time i felt like i was had so much access in cooperation from a school for written story. I think i'd have to go back to when i worked at e._s._p._n. The magazine ten years ago you know it's just and i think a lot of that comes to your not just the trust that some of us have reporters with some of these you know schools in gatekeepers but i think some of it also is just because they know that there aren't many other places willing to to take time and spend the money to go to do these stories oy that's interesting. That's a really interesting point by bruce because as as places or scaling back you know sort of traditional legacy you see places that co covered college football conversely the broadcast networks are scaling up fox's. I think more much more heavily invested in college football all this year. If nothing <hes> you know let alone just the college football show that they have. That's running against college game day e._s._p._n. Plus has a ton of college football. We all you have to do is look at the e._s._p._n. Scheduled to get a sense of the tonnage of of their game so that leads me to a question for you and that is <hes> one. What do you think of the television coverage right now college football and again. Dan very open ended in two if you could what would be the singular change that you would make if i made you. Let's say you know commissioner television commissioner afoot of college football so like you said i mean with the investment that foxing e._s._p._n. Evade <hes> you know and we now have the s._e._c. Network joining running the full conference networks. Certainly there's never been more. There's never been more t._v. Coverage of college football. There's been more games on air. <hes> <hes> so i mean i think the quality is is very good..

When i was a wee lad twenty years old hadn't even you know walked across the stage at howard and he saw tape and he knew i was inexperienced in a lot of different areas of shooting and editing producing setting up live shots but he you said you know what i can teach you that but he said don. Did you have something that can't be taught and that's what i see and down. The road even told me first month down the road. When you're a network announcer you you will remember these days and you will remember the things that you learned here and they will pay you but the your entire career also had great sports director man by the name of rape peters and i was struggling my first year in waco the first six months because i was struggling with <hes> the editing and shooting and producing of my shows and i wonder what edit bay one time when he was editing and i went in there and i and i said ray i'm struggling.

That's a front row seat for jaanus which must have been awesome. Where does it stand got so many people obviously you know both of us are from new york so i remember you you from your long knicks tenure and i think a lot of people relate you even with your current assignments to the n._b._a. How would you rate your level of interest in trying to get another n._b._a. Gig even if it's just a like a select group of games or a select schedule. I really want to get back in the n._b._a.

Right. And I love, I love live television. In the fact that, you know, you learn how to. Plan. For every eventuality, and then it never goes as planned and you learn to just shake it off.

With the emergence of the Netflix sports now is the thing that works and frankly, half the NFL is undrafted. There is a surplus of talent. So I want to start with that, that I think one of the breaks that spring football white may not have worked twenty years ago. Is this teams don't carry a third quarterback? So, again, the convergence of more college, offense into the NFL more of the college kids are working in the NFL. And now nobody keeps a third quarterback in the NFL. So to me, can you guys find the XFL ten quarterbacks? I mean that to me, ensures it works. It's a quarterback plays good. It works. Talk a little bit about the personnel available to you. Yeah. I think a couple of things there. Besides the things that you mentioned, if you talk to guys like coach Madden, or Jimmy Johnson. They'll tell you that twenty years ago when you had to get your roster down to fifty three it actually was pretty easy like guy number fifty four. John would call them just a guy like you knew that guy number fifty four was not as good as guy number fifty three. Yeah. I think today they'll tell you it's harder than ever. The quality of athleticism, the quality of talent coming out of college makes it hard that there's, there's not much difference between probably number sixty at number fifty today. So the, the quality of players, and how they're being coached in college just means that the overall quality is up and that, you know, seven hundred of them go undrafted every year coming out of division one football..
