"And I say that to say, I never viewed myself as a great academic student. That was my sister, the straight a student, my older sister. Got to 8th grade, got a poetry assignment. After turning into poetry assignment, it was written so well that the teacher thought I plagiarized it. But it wasn't until that moment where that reaction showed me that that I can write creatively better than most. And then after that, I started just writing to myself and use it as a personal journal to get my emotions and feelings out, which is that I guess the cliche story for every poet. And it wasn't to the age of 15 that my sister's boyfriend at the time, he wanted to start going to a poetry, venues, and he didn't want to go by itself. So he asked me to go to the club with him to perform. I was 15 at the time, had no desire to perform or anything like that. And went to the club and I did horrible. Did horrible forgot my palm on stage, blacked out, had to start over again. It just wasn't a good night for me. And from that moment, I didn't want to do it again. But my competitive nature kicked in. I'm very competitive. I told myself I have to redeem myself. At least have to go back one time, redeem myself, do well. I can't leave you on a note like that. Do you remember any of the poems that you performed at that time? No. Last time. I recorded it and or somebody filmed me doing it. Those are pieces that I hadn't done in 15 plus years. So no, but you know, I went away, I studied for several months, turning 16. By the time I returned, went back to the drawn board, started reading a lot of poetry, a lot of Nicky Giovanni, links and Hughes. I discovered deaf poetry jam, which was two seasons and at the time. So it was a new show on HBO. I had to buy or find the DVDs because we didn't have cable. So I went back to the club and I did great. Way smaller audience this time around. But I did great and people were taking back by me and was shocked to find out that I was 16 years old. That's when I got bit by the bug. And I went from there. And then I started going back again. And again, and I loved it because it was like a double life for me. I was going into the city. You know, at night to perform and compete against adults. And then I was going back home and getting ready for class in the morning for high school. So that really led me on a path to where I am today. What made you decide to study acting at frostburg state university in Maryland as opposed to poetry or animation? My focus has shifted from drawing an animation and after I had been performing for about three maybe four years now one stage before college and I had aspirations of wanting to now at and write and direct in all of those things for TV and film. And somebody told me if I wanted to act on film, I had to learn how to act on stage. So I said, okay, cool. I said, if I go to school and I study performing on stage, I was already a performance poet. I figured that would be a subject that would keep me in school and something that I would be passionate about. I don't want to go to college and just get a business degree or something like that. It wouldn't have kept me there to be honest. And that's when I decided to study acting in prosper. At school you found that the professors took closely to the classic canon of playwrights like chekov, Arthur Miller, ipsen, Tennessee William, Shakespeare, and while you grew to appreciate this work, you didn't see yourself or your community in their prose. Back then, did you find any work that reflected your world? No, not at all. And that's definitely not all of my professors either. I think that's an institutional problem. That has to change. I think there's way more works that are in the American canon now. Compared to even 15 years ago, there wasn't a Donny love. Jeremy O'Hara is a couture hall in the form she is now a Dominic morsel and so forth. I can name Minnie now. So, yes, my professors exposed the program to the classics as well as they did expose us. I did discover it in Tulsa from my professor marriage during my sophomore year. More so, there weren't any stories that spoke to me and my generation. There was no contemporary stories that I was exposed to and or put in front of me at that time that I could say, hey, this is me, this is my community. I can see it on stage. It didn't exist. So, as a poet, I figured, instead of complaining about it, I wanted to create what I didn't see. And it was a small novel idea, really, it was myself that might have been four black men in the program. I was like, hey, I want to write something where if we stood on stage, it would represent us, we could talk the way we want to, we could walk the way we want to. We wouldn't have to try to fit in a box where we wouldn't have to change who we were. Me being from New York, one of my partners being from D.C., another being from Baltimore, I wanted to create something that we can hold on to and really that was my mission. And not realizing that that was the origins of me writing thoughts of a color man. Back when I was a sophomore in undergrad. What was the reaction to the early iterations of thoughts of a colored man from your professors? They loved it. They were the ones who gave me the space to produce it. I love them to death to this day. They still support me. They travel wherever I go. They were the ones who first gave me the first seed money, which I believe at the time might have been like, you know, a $100, which was great. So they were the ones that truly supported and believed I could do it and gave me the chance to because usually student projects of that nature to do a play an original work usually comes from the directing track. I was on an acting track. So for them to even allow me to do something like that, not even being on that track was amazing. And that's when I realized how important it was because I was doing it out of necessity, but how important it was to produce to be a producer. I had to beat a director because there was nobody else that could bring this vision to life, right? Because it was new. Nobody knew what it was but me. I became an acting coach because at the time there was only two, I believe, black men at the time in the program that could even be in a play. So we didn't even have enough men in our department to fulfill all the 7 roles. So I had to enlist my Friends on campus that never acted before. So I became an acting coach. So out of necessity, I started wearing all of these hats. And that's what showed me it was important to own my own narratives. And I feel like there was a large population of my campus that felt included. It felt welcomed and invited. Because of they knew who I was and what I stood for. And it became a huge success on my campus. I heard that all the shows sold out in two hours. Absolutely, which was a shock to me. And that right there showed me that I had more than just this small idea, right? So if it wasn't for frostburg, show me that I had some inkling of a career in producing and directing and doing all those things. I would have never thought that for myself. You stated that you used this specific word colored to spark a visceral reaction. Like it did during the civil and pre civil rights days. How do you feel about the word now? Is definitely a word I don't care for. At all. Because I understand that the history behind the word. But I stand behind why I use the word for the response that is getting at this moment..

"But fighter is the first to obtain full approval from the FDA. NPR's Scott Horsley joins me to talk about what that could mean for employers and workers. Hey, Scott. Good afternoon. So what does it mean? How does today's FDA action change? The legal landscape for vaccine mandates. In strict legal terms. This is not necessarily a game changer. Federal courts had already ruled employers had the power to require vaccines even under emergency authorization. And some employers like United Airlines and the big meatpacker. Tyson had already announced they were moving in that direction. But today's FDA action could certainly serve as another nudge for employers. I spoke with Brett Coburn, who is an employment lawyer in Atlanta, he says earlier this year, a lot of employers were reluctant to impose vaccine requirements for fear they might drive workers away. But Coburn says that started to change last month when the CDC renewed his recommendation about wearing face masks indoors. And when it started to become clear just how serious the threat from the Delta variant might be. When that happened at the end of July. It was like a switch flipped. It's really been a sea change. And I think that the development today with the FDA approval for visor, we're just going to see the momentum continue together. Coburn says he expects the FDA action will sway not only employers, but also some individuals. That now is the time to go ahead and get the shot well. And I guess we already saw a very quick reaction today from a huge employer, the U. S military That's right. Within hours of the FDA s announcement, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said the Defense Department will press ahead with plans to require vaccines for all members of the military. It's important to remind everyone that these efforts, ensure the safety of our service members and promote the readiness of our force, not to mention the health and safety of the communities around the country in which we live now before the FDA is action today, the Pentagon would have needed a waiver from the president to make Covid shots a requirement. And the Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin had said he would seek a waiver, but now that won't be necessary. We also heard the governor of New Jersey come out after the FDA and said that all school teachers in that state and state employees will have to get vaccinated or get regular testing. Is there anything Scott to stop an employer? If they want to require vaccination, Can they do it? You know, the state of Montana has actually outlawed vaccine requirements, and we could see similar moves in other GOP controlled state, You know, Unfortunately, this has become a very partisan issue. I did mention that some employers were wary of imposing mandates early on for fear it might drive workers away in what is a pretty challenging labor market. But you know, attorney, Coburn says, Now that equation might be changing, and employers are thinking that people might quit if vaccines are not required. I think a lot of companies have just gotten to the point where they've said enough's enough. There are a lot of people who will feel much more comfortable coming back to work in a workplace where vaccines are required. Now there are some caveats. Federal law does say an employer that requires vaccines has to make allowances for people who have a medical or religious reason not to get the shot. Thank you, Scott. You're welcome. NPR's Scott Horsley. China's propaganda outlets have been making hay out of the U. S withdrawal from Afghanistan. Xinhua, the state news agency, said.

America's exit might fan the flames of Islamic extremism and encouraged terrorist groups, he says. And that's bad for everyone, including China. For Beijing, a resurgence of the East Turkistan Islamic movement or at him as a worry, and it's told the Taliban as much. China blames that group for a string of attacks over the years and has built a sprawling network of internment camps in the Xinjiang region to try to nip extremism in the bud.

"But Pfizer is the first to obtain full approval from the FDA. NPR's Scott Horsley joins me to talk about what that could mean for employers and workers. Hey, Scott. Good afternoon. So what does it mean? How does today's FDA action change? The legal landscape for vaccine mandates. In strict legal terms. This is not necessarily a game changer. Federal courts had already ruled employers had the power to require vaccines even under emergency authorization, and some employers like United Airlines and the big meatpacker. Tyson had already announced they were moving in that direction. But today's FDA action could certainly serve as another nudge for employers. I spoke with Brett Coburn, who is an employment lawyer in Atlanta, he says earlier this year, a lot of employers were reluctant to impose vaccine requirements for fear they might drive workers away. But Coburn says that started to change last month when the CDC renewed his recommendation about wearing face masks indoors. And when it starts to become clear just how serious the threat from the Delta variant might be. When that happened at the end of July. It was like a switch flipped. It's really been a sea change. And I think that the development today with the FDA approval provides, er We're just going to see the momentum continue together. Coburn says he expects the FDA action will sway not only employers, but also some individuals. That now is the time to go ahead and get the shot well. And I guess we already saw it very quick reaction today from a huge employer, the U. S military That's right. Within hours of the FDA s announcement, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said the Defense Department will press ahead with plans to require vaccines for all members of the military. Important to remind everyone that these efforts to ensure the safety of our service members and promote the readiness of our force, not to mention the health and safety of the communities around the country in which we live now before the FDA is action today, the Pentagon would have needed a waiver from the president to make Covid shots are requirement. And the Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin had said he would seek a waiver, but now that won't be necessary. We also heard the governor of New Jersey come out after the FDA and said that all school teachers in that state and state employees will have to get vaccinated or get regular testing. Is there anything Scott to stop an employer? If they want to require vaccination? Can they do it? The state of Montana has actually outlawed vaccine requirements, and we could see similar moves and other GOP controlled state. You know. Unfortunately, this has become a very partisan issue. I did mention that some employers were wary of imposing mandates early on for fear it might drive workers away in what is a pretty challenging labor market. You know, attorney, Coburn says. Now that equation might be changing, and employers are thinking that people might quit if vaccines are not required. I think a lot of companies have just gotten the point where they've said enough is enough. There are a lot of people who will feel much more comfortable coming back to work in a workplace where vaccines are are required. Now there are some caveats. Federal law does say an employer that requires vaccines has to make allowances for people who have a medical or religious reason not to get the shot. Thank you, Scott. You're welcome. NPR's Scott Horsley. China's propaganda outlets have been making hay out of the U. S withdrawal from Afghanistan. Xinhua, the state news agency, said. The fall of Kabul marked the collapse of America's international image and credibility. The editor of a State newspaper said at a joke that the Taliban's takeover was smoother than the presidential transition in the U. S. But digs aside the Swift US pullout and its aftermath are not necessarily a good thing for China as NPR China affairs correspondent Jon Rule, which explains America's two decade presence in Afghanistan has always been a mixed bag for neighboring China. On the one hand, you know they didn't love the fact that there was American military bases literally on their border in Afghanistan. Um you know, quite big counterterrorism operations and missions fighting on the ground. Raffaello Pantucci is with the Royal United Services Institute security think tank in the UK, But on the other hand, you know, they thought, well, at least someone is dealing with the issues there, and we don't have to That's all changed Do young guy who is an expert on Afghanistan at China's Lanzhou University. The young sir make what? I didn't tell you the whole America's exit. Lower strategic pressure on China, he says. But, he adds, You know what? The negatives outweighed the positives and the biggest negative from Beijing's perspective is security to America's exit might fan the flames of Islamic extremism and encourage terrorist groups, he says. And that's bad for everyone, including China. For Beijing, a resurgence of the East Turkistan Islamic movement or at him as a worry, and it's told the Taliban as much. China blames that group for a string of attacks over the years and has built a sprawling network of internment camps in the Xinjiang region to try to nip extremism in the bud. Biden administration says the effort amounts to genocide. Sean Roberts, author of the book The War, and The Wingers, says Eaten itself probably isn't much of a risk. But other jihadist groups have begun to take sympathies with The wig, ors and their plight within China. So I think that actually, the bigger threat to China is non wig or jihadist groups who may have begun to perceive China as an enemy of Islam. Beyond security. China's economic hopes for Afghanistan may also be on hold. Haiyan, Ma at Frostburg State University in Maryland, says Chinese strategists have had their eye on Afghanistan as part of the belt and road initiative. It provides a path to Iran and Turkey that avoids the Pacific Ocean where America and its allies wield power. It also circumvents Central Asia where Russia retains influence. But at this time, I don't really see how China can implement this plan. Aside from instability and uncertainty about the future, China just hasn't ever been much of a player in the country, Ma says..

"What's up brian. I am pumped. This is a game that we've been counting to since one thousand nine fifty nine. When bobby lane was traded to the pittsburgh steelers from the detroit lions and he put the curse on the line. Sing that they'll never win again. Hey they haven't won a championship sense. Is that a rosy next jersey. No it's my new joe. Schober you get in here number forty five around. I want proof. Turner all men and turn around the name. I can't nudge issue to show. He's gonna keep the number right. He's not said on twitter. Temporary and then i retweeted ends. It don't buy joe sherbert jersey and everyone thought that i was meaning that he's going to be cut or not. Make the like no. He's just saying he's going to change his number. Once cut surveyed any good thing it's a rosy next who would've known at anyways. Dave scofield's probably excited more data for dave on saturday with dave gotta get that data gotta love it. Turn out those numbers these data or data. It's data. No you said that very definitively. I'm pretty sure some people say data on. Well you ask you what i say. Yeah right you could have said is it is data like it's this is how it is for me. It's knows why because that is how it was properly enunciated on one star trek the next generation with the android by the name of data. Sure we'll take it okay. So let's get started. I want to talk about something. That's not necessarily steelers related right now in. This is just because it's kind of a hot topic on twitter and that is training camp fights we chuckle. because we know we're gonna be talking about Mister big chest aka ronald ocean aka be antoni around was mixing it up down in tampa with the tennessee. Titans i'm not sure even hit a cornerback was a great shot because it matter those a great shot of evita connecting with a left javer hook i swear to the face but nonetheless guys this is not the only fight is taking place. I know the jon. Gruden pulled the raiders off. the field. took him to the buses. Like we're not doing this. I guess it was at the rams. Maybe they got into some fisticuffs jomon. Let's just talk about joint practice fights because that seems to happen a lot and it even happened with the pittsburgh a few years ago. I remember when the buffalo bills came to saint vincent college they had some Scuffles there the detroit. Lions had come the Not heinz field. Sorry to saint vincent before similar story. Brian what's your take on these camp fights okay or come on guys know. You're no year professionalism. We'll put it. It's for me. It's no your professionalism. You know a ban it's happening all over. And when you know when you said joint practice fights randy gregory of the of the cowboys got excited. Because he was like. I mean that was awesome he. He's not the only one martavis bryant. I really do. Wonder gordon's give my name out there. It's it's happening like crazy though. Even the even the flights in the stands there's been a couple of stands fights that have been absolutely incredible. That was rams and chargers rams and chargers on a slack. Channel and seahawks and raiders came to There was a so it was absolutely crazy. I don't know what's going out out west but it's really funny. I i have a cousin and she married a guy. That was a raiders fan and back in the eighties. I mean i talk him in the nineties. He was telling me about you. Being a fan being raiders fan. It was la raiders. At the time he would actually say so this scar right here. This is broncos eighty seven. This one's this one's eighty eight. You know. I mean it's just like some of the places you go you expect the fight as you think. Join cam practice is one of those places. Yeah well you shouldn't. You should not have a joint camp practice you know. It's kind of a goodwill thing to be practicing together because this this is one of those things that you know. The two teams are coming together to share a practice field to plate to get ready together. They don't need this going on. And you know if you get hot under the collar something happens pushing and shoving is one thing you know a push to say. Hey you know. Somebody jumping in but fisticuffs. That's a different thing and you know you also be smart if you're the player. I mean antonio brown. I mean when you're your hands are your livelihood in your throw throwing a shot. I mean you throw that shot a how many people throw a punch and throat wrong enough that they mess up their hands on. Thanks to mr big chests. Yeah ronnie ocean from dave. What about you. you're a player. You coach. I'm sure you've dealt with your share of dust as we used to call it. What do you think about this situation. All right well first of all when it comes to. Let's say a joint practice. I've never been to still latrobe to see. Steelers training camp practice or heinz field this year but i have seen the steelers participate in joint practices before at frostburg state university when they used to travel down there to take on the then washington redskins. And i don't ever remember seeing a anybody you know there might have been some jarring jawing at each other but there was really no throwdown. But it's kind of interesting that you say this and then we wonder why the nfl was is cracking down on the taunting. It's funny they want to crack down on the taunting because they're on on honestly truthfully. I believe it's because of the retaliation factor of then when you go out. Are you taking a shot at someone on the field and blah blah blah and what it could lead to and we complain that they're going to start calling that which is funny. Because i listened to your. Let's ride from wednesday and the about what happened in the in the colts panther's game. I do believe who they were playing. Yeah and and i'm like you do realize that that is not allowed on any level of football until you get the nfl..

"Right. And while stephen is on the phone with nine hundred one there is speculation questions about what kind of situation they're dealing with here. The certainly doesn't seem like your run of the mill of two missing hikers. Something about this scenario seems much much darker kiddie call. Communications was going on. We got a missing couple in savage river state far. It's possible suicide possible suicide. So stephen meet an ominous suggestion when he was reporting the bizarre events of this evening to the dispatcher. He believed that his friend. Alex had gone into the woods to kill himself that night. And when asked about what alex making could be doing out in the woods. This was most likely the theory that stephen could come up. With and multiple law enforcement agencies would become involved in the search efforts to locate megan and alex and the possibility that this couple had gone on what's described as a quote unquote suicide walk began to spread amongst them the agencies that would be involved in this rescue effort. Were notified that the on the ground search would begin at sunrise. Enter our first degree jonathan. But before you hear from him you need a little background info. We explained the geography of savage river. State forest this is not a residential area. We're talking dense remote wilderness. Jonathan lived as well as many of the other individuals connected with the story is a town called westport. It was about a forty minute drive from westport to the high rock trail head. We we live in a small town called western port however this occurred and the state fours which is kind of outside of city limits. Tim between several different towns actually a whole nother county the town that we live in town surrounding or all rural and very very small everyone everybody and the population of the towns the average size is probably no bigger than probably thousand for western port and then the surrounding towns no bigger than three or four hundred people so based on jonathan's description the communities were dealing with are made up of teeny tiny towns teeny tiny populations and you know what that generally means gossip a lot of gossip and it was early in the morning on january fourth two thousand seventeen just a few days after the turn of the new year. These are typically days of hibernation some more context. Jonathan also worked as a volunteer for the local fire department. And while you kind of have to be ready to get called out to a scene at any time the majority of your fire service and your emt's almost all volunteer about eighty percent of them are and as an emt in as a firefighter. I got to see a plethora of different calls from drug overdoses and the heroine epidemic across the nation. We got to go on trauma calls. Of course i've been on involvement incidence of gunshot wounds and basic stuff to nosebleeds. Headaches broken ankles twisted ankles broken legs. I'm falling out steps. So we'd gone on a multitude of different types of ns call so jonathan was prepared to be called out at any time but nothing could have prepared him for the scenario that was unfolding at savage river state forest. I do remember. I was on that day. I was just relaxing at home and doing some homework then as volunteer. We go when the whistle blows when usually drop what doing and go to call and so at that time sitting home and of course the phone went off. The fire was had blown Minnows actually for a rip call. So what exactly is a rope. Call the company that i volunteer for as a rope team. Rebecca team a team that repels off cliffs or team. That would go and help with water rescues and is really technical. Rescue or side rope team has called in when there's a tactical obstacle like a cliff or water or some rough terrain that needs traversing and once jonathan learned where he was being called he understood. Exactly why a rope team would be needed high rock which is where alexan- megan's things were found was basically a cliff with an approximate thirty and because it was a cliff. They called the rope. Came out and that rope team would respond in case we had to repel off the cliff in case we were to pass to use any technical rescuers with harnesses and ropes. We would respond to that in this The local fire companies. that were. They're calling for the rope. Team was a smart move because we're talking endless acres of treacherous wilderness. And here's the thing by this point. Alex and could be anywhere very rural appalachia in the middle of nowhere damage. River runs through the forest. It was a little bit away from the particular river itself but if people are familiar the that savage river used to be home many many years ago. It's a whitewater rafting river. They rugged very rural lhasa mountains along with another volunteer. Jonathan made the forty minute drive to the savage river area. And at this point he didn't know a ton about what was going on. We were looking for two individuals who were apparently lost. We didn't know if it was in the forest. We didn't know if it was in the woods creek or at time where we thought they were located on a cliff slowly. Jonathan learned more details about these missing hikers and once he heard the names of the missing parties he was stunned. Dinu pretty soon on after who it was. I was kind of astonished and at that point thinking oh my goodness i know. This person like are they. Okay what happened. Jonathan just happened to be very well acquainted with twenty year. Old meghan schafer. I worked with nagin for many many years. There's a local crotty video in town and megan was kind of a mentor for me growing up in in in the karate in the studio i progress my way into black belt. She was a teacher of mine. And it keeps your of lots of different friends. That i that i knew and so she did have her belt in taekwondo. As do i. And we knew each other and Family in actually her brother as well through the martial arts studio when you search online for information about megan schaefer you can find the general things you'd expect at the time or facebook said. She was from ridgely western virginia. And it isn't clear to me at what point. She lived in western virginia but credible reporting on. This case indicates the same thing so at some point. That's where she's from or where she lived or something like that but meghan gone to frankfurt high school in previously held jobs at bath and body works as well as kick masters karate. Llc which is worshipped. Jonathan at the time. Megan was enrolled at frostburg state university with a major in business administration. More on meghan always upbeat always outgoing. And you know the one thing martial arts that you typically on. Tv's fighting seen stuff now. Martial arts for me is a lot more than that. It's about respect. It's about discipline. We do a lot of different learning of terms and definitions of the history of martial arts but meghan was always a great spar which means sparring is when you face off against an opponent. One on one kicks punches of course gloved off or have pads on but however really really really good so megan was physically fit and she was a black bell and as jonathan described she taught taekwondo and was very committed to her martial arts discipline. Choose strong choose very into weightlifting and she was happy upbeat and had a great family. And all these factors that made the fact that megan was missing in the woods under these scary and extraordinary circumstances that much more perplexing an inexplicable..

"And a bunch of other things had to happen for the north play offs. And we were there and they won and then all those other things happen and the only they didn't need absent or make. The playoffs was for the chiefs to beat the chargers. And we listened to that game on the chiefs. Everybody the whole way home and by the time got back my parents house we got there just in just in time to see the chargers win after chiefs blewett and ride suck up and all that stuff but my dad going kept going to games. It was something that we did We went the the next year we we went and saw them play tampa sat the exact same seats. Unfortunately that one didn't end as well But then later that that season my wife. And i went to the last game of the season. And then i had already had tickets to the playoffs. I was able to get them because of the time we bought him. No one thought the steelers are going to make the playoffs and they went on that really nice. Rhonda won four straight games to to to not just make the boss but the host a playoff game But we all might remember what happened with the steelers had to call on a running back off the street to start the in the playoffs so the next year was when i got my season tickets and my dad was the first person to go to me to a game With season tickets and it was the home opener that year. It was where they they beat up. Pretty bad on the forty niners was brian. Cheesier had like fifteen tackles. He was all over the place and then got a stinger in one hour like all i hope he's and then he missed the next several games. But it's something that is always important to me that my dad and i kind of bond over are very stuff with the steelers. My parents still come to my house to watch the super bowl every year. I've shared an article in the past about what it meant to me. The last time the steelers win the super bowl. My parents came to the house but my mom had just learned how to walk again from or she looked. She lost the use of her legs due to an autoimmune disease and had to learn how to walk again and walked in my house in order to watch the super bowl that year but even the even the last year that i was going to games my my dad because of getting older and moving around just said you know what i think. I'm done going the games. His last one was the playoff game in two thousand seventeen but then he took twenty eighteen often than twenty nine thousand nine hundred to me. He's like you know what. I've never been to a monday night. Football game let. Let's go so we went to the dolphins game which ended up being a pretty fun fun game to be at but with me. It's always been those experiences that i've been able to share with with my dad. It's always something for us to talk about. Every time he comes to visit arrive. I i'm at his house to visit our first conversation generally goes steers towards the steelers. Of course he's always asking why i think about with with self with now writing for the website but it's always been something one of those things that that we always know that we can share and having no experiences experiences the first time going into heinz field with my dad is field one time before and that was in two thousand four with my wife. Got me tickets for the day after christmas. I told that story before More she got for four. Christmas was for the day after christmas. But i haven't been to heinz field since from two thousand and four to two thousand thirteen so that that was a big deal to go and experience that with my dad. He'd been steelers games in three rivers. In fact my brother's been to gain you know went to a game with them and everything. But it's just that that special bonding thing about the steelers you know are a lot of presence we give each other has to do with the steelers and and everything else it. It kind of is just one of those things that when when all else fails you know that that is a special bond that you have so i'm so blessed to still have my father with me And i appreciate all those moments that we've had what it comes to the steelers that it's it's things that i'll never forget it and that's why it's also important for me to pass the same thing on to my kids. I've taken my daughter to two different. Preseason games now because that's what she likes to do. The kids generally don't watch football with me on tv because daddy's working and they care really they they. They know that. I have to focus so much on the game and now mike and i occasionally my son will just come and just sit and not say a word I know my my my my second child. My son he's he's excited to go to a game with at some point but we actually went to the last home. Pittsburgh penguins game Before their season gut shutdown with covert and in in twenty twenty and. That was something that was that you know. He likes football. He also likes the hockey. I think he wanted to do something special that his sister had done before but now now he's talking about being his turn to spend some time with dad steelers. So that's the steelers will always be a part of my life when it comes to fatherhood because it's because both of my dad and the in a at our experiences we've had with the steelers even when my dad is a kid took took me to practice at frostburg state university where washington had their their training camp because the steelers for coming down for the day for a workout and when the steelers had some players that came to what i was younger but eventually being my high school to play the faculty and basketball for a fundraiser. On carnell lake lakers one of the steelers and taking us to that and almost every opportunity we could do something steelers. My dad grabbed a hold of that. And what i got older. And i could take those opportunities to do something steelers with him. That was really important. So it's always been about all of football but then it's really taken to the next level with the love the steelers so If my dad this. I want my dad had no. I love you dad. I love our love for the steelers. And i can't wait to talk to you about the steelers any chance i can and for those of you that maybe you maybe you don't have that relationship with a family member where they share your love for the steelers anytime you.

"I wouldn't say weird. I'd say magnificent more than weird, but I mean, I had like 8 hairs on the left and 8 hairs on the right and there were perfectly groomed. And every now and then there would be some stuff on my chin. It was good. All right. Well, never mind. No, no. All right, so you graduate high school. Even thought about the Marine Corps or military service or you said, you know what? I want to get a secondary education. How did that come about? So I had thought about several things. I was a screw up in high school. I mean, I always got in my 9th grade year, I got a really screwed up grades, and then my tenth grade year, I couldn't play football. I played football. And so I knew that I would never get poor grades like that again, like below a two. But I was always around at two in high school. What? You think about other stuff? Like, well, we didn't have porno, but you know, HBO after dark. The static. I was thinking more like the Victoria's Secret Kellogg, but 1990 something, man. It was a while ago. But anyway, so I screwed up my freshman year and then after that I had to sit out for part of my tenth grade year and vowed never to do that again, but still kind of hung around like a two two 5 just to be safe. So I was never great. You don't want to be a nerd, but you didn't want it not be able to play football. I was more in school. I was more in school for the social aspect of it. I couldn't tell. I rarely miss school high school. It was just a lot of fun. I could go and play it all day. It was just fun to meet people and all that, but. I hurt my finger and my senior year. And I actually had some decent colleges that were probably division two type colleges looking at me for offensive defensive tackle, but I missed 6 games in my senior year, so a lot of those schools weren't interested anymore. So the only schools are really we're interested was I think frostburg state university in Maryland and Indiana University of Pennsylvania. And I wasn't throughout the body either one of those and I wasn't thrilled about going to school. And so I actually ended up moving to New Jersey and doing construction with a friend of mine and his parents, and after doing construction for a semester, and I'm like, oh no. I'm way too much of a way. I am the least handy Hispanic person in the United States. I'm going to college and after that one semester off, I went to the college in spring, I went to frostburg state university. I think a year and a half, and then I went to the Marine Corps reserves, and there was a program to do the split reserves where you just didn't have to miss school. Oh, the 90 day you were a 90 days old. Okay..
