Dr. Tim Clinton: 'God Is Constantly Reaching Toward Us'

"My friend doctor Kim Clinton, the book is take it back, reclaiming biblical manhood for the sake of marriage family and culture. You have stories in this book about people like George foreman, I love George Foreman. I want to get him on this program. I just want to talk to that guy. Tell me about him, but maybe before you tell me about him. Tell me what you just told me in the break about what about men who have blown it, who have messed up. Yeah, Eric, one of the things that I see a lot and have conversations with men around is Tim. I made some mistakes in my life. I haven't been a good dad. I've not handled my marriage all that well. I struggle in my relationship with God. And I don't know what it means. I can do things. I want to and they're given a little bit more what we would call as religion versus a relationship with God because Tim if God really knows me the way you say he knows me, there's no way you could love me. Because they look inside and they see the brokenness. You know that? And Eric, here's the central message of the book. And that is, is that God is constantly reaching toward us. He desires us. His heart is there. And he wants us and he beckons us to come to him. Just like we want our kids to come to us when they're broken. When they're struggling, when they're lost, when they're confused, I want my kids running to my lap. And God can handle our emotion. He can handle the brokenness of our lives. He just simply wants us to come

"Welcome back everyone. I'm dina i'm shannon. We have a funny episode today because our brains hurt shannon just started back at school. I have a newborn and it was so hard for me to come up with a deep thoughtful topic. Today's episode is all about our thrift predictions. For what would you say the next five years. Yeah i guess maybe five to ten okay and it just depends so basically what we mean by. That is what we predict will end up in mass volumes at thrift stores. Because any thriftier knows if you go to a thrift store right now especially the bigger ones. You tend to see a lot of the same things especially older trends. That were really popular at one. Point and ended up at thrift stores as styles changed for example the tuscan style home decor which has now been replaced with farmhouse home decor. So when you go to the thrift store you see a lot of those Jars with fake olives and stuff in them and and then you know you see a million george foreman grills because everybody had like to george foreman grills in their house at some point so we thought we would come up with a list of things that are super popular. Right now that we believe will end up in large quantities at thrift stores in the next five to ten years and there's nothing wrong with these products it's just an observation and this idea came to me as i was using that many waffle maker that you got me and i thought wow these are so popular right now. And it's kind of a fad. And i bet you anything. This is the next. George foreman grill so much. I feel like five years ago. You could buy one of those at thrift store right like i feel like it's like recycled itself. Yeah okay so we're just going to go back and forth. I have no idea what's on shannon's list. She doesn't know what's on my list. I just kinda gave one of mine away but we'll go into more detail and we will link. Some of these are the ones that we can find on my blog on the show notes. So if you're curious about some of these things that we're talking about if you're not familiar with any of them or if you wanted to actually buy one of them we will have them linked In the show notes okay shannon. Kick it off. I wonder how many we're gonna have in common. I know that sort of excited about okay. My number one is going to be jeans. Those those are going to be back at the thrift store. 'cause they're ugly sorry that love them. I cannot take them but those that was all we saw. I think for the last ten years our mom jeans at their store and now everybody's wearing them so they're not so populated at the store anymore. So i feel like mom jeans are going to be back. Are you saying the original mom. Jeans are gonna come back at thrift stores or the new versions..

"With Dr William Gray. Let's continue. Our broadcast discussion on America has immoral decay. Well, when you have lost your moral compass. Then you have lost. Something that's very, very valuable. It means that you have very little integrity. You have no morality. And your character is completely distort it. Jesus puts it like this. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you and in another difficult principle, it says that Be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Now, what does this mean about being transformed by the renewing of your mind? Well, you know what? When the officers when the officer put his knee on George Foreman's neck. And for all those minutes Did not have any type of moral compass. He had become spiritually bankrupt. And became totally impoverished. And the other officers stood by and just watch this were victims of the same moral poverty. They lost their spiritual compass and They had no value of life, not only for Judge George Foreman, but for no one else. At that time. They had absolutely no moral compass that would tell them that this was the wrong thing to do. We're going to address that issue today, and I'm going to share some other issues. We're not going to dwell on. We're not going to dwell on the fact that the officer that committed this murder of George Foreman Has been sentenced to 22 years in prison. Unfortunately, he's going to have the opportunity in 15 years to be paroled and just beyond probation. However, we're going to address the issues of moral decay. In America and how you can make a difference. It starts with respecting yourself as you respect others. Everybody that you're running. I think everybody speak you. The song ever hate about the man with the Bible and, Yeah, Shit. I don't weigh 11 didn't do his thing. Yeah..

"You burn it on a George Foreman Grill? No, no, I've never had a George Foreman Grill. Are they good? They're still making George Foreman grills don't know they have no, you know the thing to have it. The thing to have now is is an air friar. Yes, you were those? Yes, Radio. Ugo Boston Air Fryer and our new oven that we got when the kitchen got remodeled has like an error. Like a conviction settings. You can turn the fan on and like Basically there, fry in the oven. It's awesome. That's what you do. Yeah. Really good. So we don't need the portable one anymore. I'm gonna put it on Facebook marketplace. You know, you could go places now because I want you. I want people coming to my house to looking at air further myself for $25. I might want it. I might want it. Don't you owe me for something. If it made hash. It is not a head coach By September. You owe me. You pay me in the air prior. Okay. Sounds good that a good tradesman Well, it has been well cared for If it's if it's yours. I know that seriously. That's a nice compliment. Mostly was used by the kids so well, then it's not such a sure thing. Right? Little buyer. Beware note on that, But you know I'd have to look at it. I guess that's what I should say. So maybe you guys will have a quick answer to this. Or maybe you'll want to think about it, But I think it's worth talking about due bills, fans or should bills. Fans want Aaron Rodgers to be traded? Yes. No, don't care. What would be like the winning answer. Or should be think. I think I think no I think? No, I think you'd rather not hit. Assuming he goes to the A F C and, you know You don't have to assume that, but you know, what have we heard about Denver? The Raiders? Um, I don't know really Well, San Francisco, but I mean, that's out Miami Earlier they on the list there on the odds list. Okay, well, that that's right. So that's a that's a factor. So another another quarterback of that caliber in the conference, you know, I said, when this force was hot first, like heading into the draft that that weekend The best I can do is say maybe it makes it harder on the homes of the A F C West, and that's not nothing. But then, you know, you're still gonna have to deal with Aaron Rodgers. Like if he if he knocks off my home, so you gotta deal with him. And I guess I'd rather be with him and Aaron rather than my home's at this point, But still it's not any picnic. Um, so I think, no, I mean I'm tourney on it. Maybe you can tell because I think it be super hot if he got traded. And I'm of the opinion that he will get traded. But I don't think you if you're really thinking of the bill's interest solely that you want him in the A F. C Okay? Yeah, I think that's it. I mean, the Kansas City piece is the one that I'm interested in that Makes me think that you could want him traded. Otherwise, really? The only way you're gonna have to deal with him is in the Super Bowl. The Hackers do play the Chiefs. So if he goes to Denver It's two games against Kansas City. They're already be one if he's playing for green Day, um, but, you know, difference for tiebreakers. I thought of this when writing today. Because I did this exercise this would you take exercise that you and I do a lot Would you take these certain records for the bills, and I didn't have any sort of pre You know, and I didn't prepare with like this where I want to end up. So I just sort of went through the schedule section by section and then wrote it that way. Wrote it just, you know. Going from beginning to end. And the last one. I did Woz. I got to 12 and five. I want to apologize every time for the fact that it's 17 games. Even though I had nothing to do with it, because I feel like somebody is going. This idiot thinks 12 and five equals 16. Is an NFL record. That's a football record. And what why is this guy even there? So I want to apologize every time for that 12 and five though it as it happens, that is an actual You know, NFL record now. And is that good? Of course, it's good, but Would you take that for the bills? And My I'll get you Rogers in this, okay? But my instinct is to say, of course. Is that yours like Of course you would take 12 and five How? What do you think? Who do you think you are? If you're not Right. Right. So, yeah. I mean, it's an excellent record. Yeah, excellent record, like, of course. So that's my instinct. But as I started, and so I'm writing it and I'm feeling like my answer is going to be yes. And then I got to a different answer. Because I thought of the Chiefs. I mean, what a Chiefs fan take 12 and five Should they have the same instinct? Should a Kansas City fan have the same instinct? You think that's good? I think maybe yeah, I think maybe they should. They might not because they're Well, you know, they're working on three excellent seasons out of their quarterback, and thus their whole team. As it turns out, so you might You might be tempted to shoot higher, but I almost think any team in that league in any year that has championship aspirations. 12 12 is a very like that. That is not a that's not Ah oh, man, what went wrong record at all in that league when you consider all the randomness that exists within it? If you went 12 of your 17 of God, I'm gonna throw up in my mouth games. I think that that's that's excellent. I think you've done a very good job. And you might not get the number one seed because you're only 12 and five and you know you're striving for bigger things. But I think in a would you take way? Don't think you're settling. I think you're signing for what I think is an excellent season. Every team should say yes to that record every time Is that where you want to be? I think so. Yeah. I mean, I don't care if you're the 2007 Patriots, and you didn't lose a regular season game. You get ready for 2000 and 8 12 and four would have been an excellent outcome for that season. Well here. Go ahead, Joe. I think if I'm Kansas City, I don't sign up for that. Because if I'm Kansas City, and I only care about winning the Super Bowl, I mean, what am I trying to accomplish in the regular season? I'm trying to get the one seed trying to get the buy. And I'm trying to get home field throughout the playoffs. I should feel like I'm Kansas City. I've got the division wrapped up. How are the bill's different Say the same thing. Just test drive the same point. And use the.

"The great story about about the George Foreman Grill is it was originally Pitch to the Hulkster. You know the wrestling guy, whole Cogan and he passed on it and see passing steak. Big Miss? Yeah, huge mistake. But anyway, so the correct answer since its introduction in 1994. Over 100 million George Foreman grills have been sold My Nate worldwide Is it true that he even manufactured like a cheap version of it and sold it like to compete with his own grills? I don't know if that's true or not. Look, I I'm not that deep into the structure, business structure of the George Foreman Krill e mean, you know, it's like I worked there. You know, like I spent 20 years there before I got into radio. And you like it. So what were the the asset sheets? You know, before the George report, 1994 version came out Well, you guys did you have enough product or did you have to go into a shark tank and get a shark to help you out with financing so you can get more products. It's not so crazy. You do did dives on things, man. Oh, man. I know the George Foreman has made a ton of money on these things, though, and it could all have gone all of it. Could have gone two whole Kogan And and so he's probably kicking himself in the ass. All right, George Foreman's net worth. Let's see what George Foreman's net worth is here as C George Foreman is worth $300 million Right. And most that has got to be the grill. Was when he was fighting. It wasn't making that kind of money back. He was a great fighter, but the person's weren't that big. All right. There you go. When we come back, we way have some cool guests on this show.

"Continue our conversation with George Foreman. Talk to me if you would about your ministry. I've been a minister Nets almost 40 years. Next March 40 years I've been preaching, Can you? We were talking about 70 eights. Hard to believe That's 40 years ago. Can you believe it? So All those years eyes the one thing that I'm attached to that I can look back every year and grateful for it has made a good, better man of me met a lot of people I've introduced It is way of life and this made better people out of them. And the ministry is the one thing that keeps me striving and happy. Obviously it's Christ example. That is the basis of our faith. But is there someone in the Bible that you look at his life and you see based on his growth and you identify with him a lot. All the apostle Paul. The story goes that he was He was on this road on the road going in one direction. He got knocked off, knocked to the ground and went in another direction. That is the most magnificent thing. I didn't. I never knew that exist in the bottle Bible until after 77. I didn't hear those stories That didn't mean anything. And I'm happy is when I read about His transformation well, and to imagine a man writing letters from prison that are changing a life. I mean that zoo pretty profound ministry. That's why it's good that all of us visit the presence and talk because there are a lot of strong Wilder men where we've got a lot to say about the future already in jail, they just for the time being locked up. America's changed a lot since you were 16 years old. Do you think a young man today has the same opportunity? She do? You did. You know, there's two ways to look at America. You can look at it as what you've heard and look at it. As what Lived. I've never had an unhappy day for America was concerned in my life. Orders always been a distinct taste of chocolate ice cream and vanilla ice cream, and they didn't even come on the scene with coconut. Coconut ice cream. I mean, now they got Baskin robbin with all those flavors. They didn't exist back in the forties and fifties, But ice cream was just as good without my best ice cream in my whole life was when Daddy cooking that That's what I was trying to bear. My pop all would make it and we would sit on the crane. You know, you'd have to sit there and wait on it, too, with the rock, salt and all that nothing's ever been. Even Bluebell doesn't match up to that. Yeah. So when people say America changed America to me has always been I thought one day Was going to get some money. And I was talking about friends and I'm gonna go down and all the sandwich and one friends. What kind of sandwich? Are you gonna harbor a syrup sandwich? S all we thought about Serves. Which man is there with? My mother tells me about man a sandwiches. World to me has always been measured in the taste and the flavors and then they use a lot of spices that we didn't know about. But I still look at America's the most wonderful place on earth. I was born in it, and it was always the most wonderful place I'd walk down the street. We get a car or not toes because they put the rocks and put the toys that hard. There now walk around us. Look at the streets. I said the kids will not even experienced are on the roads anymore. So for me, it's been a great country has been a great journey. I've met some of the most wonderful people ever. Lyndon Johnson dot Brody's My Boxing coach always been Jimmy Brown..

"We'll talk to the author of a book detail ng. Why the 16 19 project If you heard of that is so problematic. Something. The New York Times has been pushing that the United States is evil to its core. Well, he's actually going to tell the truth on that matter. In the next hour. We're going to talk to Raymond Arroyo. Who, if you ever listened to the Laura Ingraham show over the years is frequent part of the Laura Ingraham show. He, um He's written a book Christmas book. About. It's called spider in the Web, and it is about the history of tensile and the meaning of that and how that's biblical. It's a pretty interesting story. Our folks in New Orleans in Baton Rouge and anyone who's ever been to New Orleans. They're gonna want to listen in because his grandfather And we take a romp through the history of, uh of high schools in New Orleans and culinary history of New Orleans, and you'll hear references to Gala Twas and Parkway Tavern and Dragos and lots more Lou Holtz today by the way, was Honored with the Medal of Freedom by the president. It has been our goal to get President Trump To honor George Foreman, the former heavyweight boxing champ, the Olympic champion in 1968. You remember what George Foreman did when he won his gold? Over the Russians. He pulled from his boxing shorts on American flag. He ran around the ring with that American flag. I interviewed George Foreman a few years ago and he gave me my dog. Our family dog is one of his very special breed. That's why it's a girl named George. We named her after him. But he is a prize breeder of a line of German shepherds that are are known throughout the world. There just incredible dogs and she's an incredible dog. He's an entrepreneur. Of of incredible repute is a great promo man. He's a pastor of a church. He doesn't take tides because he doesn't need to. He founded the church. He funds the church. He ain't looking for money. He wanted to spread the gospel and he preaches every Sunday. He's a husband. He's a father. He's a mentor. He's an actor and And I think it would be a wonderful wonderful honor and a wonderful celebration of a great American life. And so if you have your connection to President Trump other it's through Twitter. Or you could walk down the hall because we do have some folks who listen who do have The president's here. I have been pitching as hard as I can for president to honor with the Medal of Freedom. George Foreman and I hope He will In Houston. Our mayor is talking tough. He's talking tough. He doesn't want us going out just just like all these other mayors. He, uh he doesn't want us going out. He doesn't want businesses to be open. And, um He talks real tough, like he's. It's kind of like a seventies blaxploitation film, you know, coffee or shaft? He's he's kind of. He's kind of position himself is just tough Mayor of Detroit or Chicago, but we're Houston. Coming soon to a theater near you. Look, I've learned that you just don't take anything off the tape Mayor Sly Superfly And.

Mike Tyson might not stop after Roy Jones Jr. fight

"Asked roy jones junior and mike tyson. What is your take on. Roy jones in tyson. Anyone has seen the footage of tyson working. The focus pads lately says Tyson looks like the scariest fifty two year old on the planet What's roy jones is plan with tyson. Roy jones lulu lot. Roy jones lot roy jones was one of the most gifted athlete of all time and was completely dominant in his in his prime. But he's not a bona fide heavyweight tyson tyson. Pretty much is how does that first off. What's the weight that what are they doing. A catchweight where. Where's that thing gonna land. Well mike tyson. I spoke to him yesterday. Called me on my birthday. Which was very nice and A mike is lost one hundred pounds. He told me yesterday. One hundred pounds. Wow he's in fantastic shape and he says he really feels good about where he is and himself and you know his weight and his mental outlook is is just fantastic. I've been overseeing the gym. I'm going to work on that. Fight showtime nice enough to let me go work on that broadcast and so. I think it's really interesting. He's fifty four years old. He hasn't Fifteen years okay. Said since mcbride and he was done he was done after that fight and he just said it to me in the ring that night he said. I just don't have this in me anymore. Don't have that instinct to go out and be ferocious. Wanna do this anymore. So i think now the passage of time and getting in shape and you know seeing what's what's gone on with athletes who have extended their careers. Obviously and other sports are not getting hit like he is but to see just how well lebron james plays at an age Getting older see. Tom brady to see drew. Brees to see these guys now. You know lengthening their careers. You know it's an exhibition. So we'll find out but tyson did tell me in an interview that he would be willing to fight. If you know see how this goes he would be willing to fight evanger holyfield on third and if he does well he would consider one of the champions right now possibly a joshua or fury down the road and you know everybody can point to george foreman right. The our was wasn't fifty four years old But let let's see how he looks. I i know. I know that a lot of boxers of told me that what they see in the gym. Just the speed that they would not want to be hit by that.

There's no way to move PS5 games off the SSD

"See what we discuss first. Let's just go down the list for ps five. So i do want to say if you are somebody who is easily offended please. Just don't stick around. Because i that's not how i work and i get it that we have people that come into the channel for these guys and who maybe are accustomed to the way i talk which is like a lot of jockstrap humor and shit. But i'm not going to sit here and lie to you about any system or at least what i consider lies just going to tell you exactly what i think of them. And what. I what i like dislike and that doesn't mean you will feel the same way. It's just exactly what i think about these things. So just wanna prepare people. Because i said this in the video my thoughts are very divergent. Compared to a lot of other people and i'm not saying they're wrong and i'm not saying i'm right but i'm almost saying that and i do. I wanna talk about this and see if you guys believe a couple of things that were seen is just what we've seen in the past in reflection of hyperbole or if i'm wrong so we'll begin first thing i'm gonna talk about you. Get this system. Ps five we're going to talk about for secret ps five. I'm going to do a video on this if you don't wanna be spoiled about the ps five. Looks like which would be weird. You can wait for the video but we're going to talk about this. I get this thing home. And first of all i just have to say man. I don't care what anybody says. It's fucking ugly the. Ps five is horrendous. It's like a kid who worth fire. Bridgeton could ruin at a router company and then watch lord of the rings like ten times in a. That's just the way it is. Do i care no. I don't care at all. it's it's funny. We can tease it. But i played the dreamcast played. The game cube game cube was a fucking cube. Like that's all it was. It's not these things for an artistic representation. I don't want it to look like a flower bouquet. So i got this thing at home and i opened up massive. It's ugly as fuck. It's got these huge gulf wing kind of things off the top. And i gotta tell you. It doesn't look good no matter where i put it in my house anywhere i. It was bad enough that my wife was looking at it and just being like damn son that is fucking ugly and my wife is. She married me like she's used. She's accustomed right. You're talking to somebody who wakes up in the morning. Fuck and goes into. My boxer takes his pissed. She's had to see that she's had to see ugly. She seen in probably lived through the sins of man just by knowing for a year and even she looks at this fucking thing. And it's like god damn. Can you hide it so i have hit it. That is not a ding on the. Ps five. i don't care. Because i don't think the. Ps four or the ps three. George foreman grill edition. Looked fucking awesome right and the xbox original with its sort of boxing look wasn't necessarily You know awesome so you get this thing home you look at it. You got usb on the front. You have the on the back usb on the fronts usb see as well as which is nice to have a ac- that's where you plug in your dax which by the way people were wondering if digital audio or digital analog converters work. I've plugged in a couple and the have worked on the. Ps five guess on the ps four Was a little little heggie so those worked so you get this thing home you plug it in transferring your old. Ps four stuff to your. Ps is definitely a little bit more cumbersome than the xbox so i don't know why but they have a lot of and this is something you'll see in the overall they have a lot of nested and bouncing menus where you're like over here then you're all the way over here that kind of stuff but got it set up and i moved my stuff over. And it's like you can take your ps four hard-drive plug it into your ps five. And i'm like that's awesome. I plug it in. My aren't showing games are showing saves. Aren't showing. I realize the only way to transfer it the way i want to is to plug it back into the. Ps four sign into that use gamertag. Then plug it into the ps five then. Transfer the stuff that. Ps five then go back to the ps four then plug it in then reload the other gamertag so some some of mine which have nda's on him some of my Games i have to play on a particular gamertag. That's like you know. Just jargon right it's like not me. It's not when i share with these guys because you'll be playing an nba game. That was a little rough. I got it figured out but it was just a little bit weird and just a word of warning man. Don't throw your. Ps four hard drive on your ps five and like reformatted or something because you might reformat another profile that's got some saves on there that you might wanna try transfer over but you get it up and running you look at this and i gotta say man. We've seen this you i. We've seen the videos. It's just a you. I don't care again it's just you i but it's not it's not great it is also missing some things like themes and stuff which i thought was weird because that was a big thing for sony. Those are missing currently But it's it's overall about the same really. I mean like you go up and then it's the same thing you see on the ps four. Your tiles right. The only thing is is they've now got two lines of like they've basically got two lines of tiles. You've got your top tiles and then when you open up game you've got your bottom tiles which includes a thing called a switcher which somebody else's mentioned so i don't want to talk about because i don't there's some stuff we can't cover right now but it allows for you to switch between games not quick resume by the way there's no such thing jumping in there playing it using that. Ui stuff you've seen. It's pretty much what it is if you like that kind of stuff that's great if you don't you're not gonna be able to get away from it but i just don't see a lot of people i don't know about you guys. I don't spend a lot of people in the. Us like a lot of time in the us. It's not something that i'm gonna. I'm gonna fred over so getting this all set up and going i another thing. It's cool to the touch like it's it's pretty much like the ps or like the xbox series. I saw some people say in both were overheating or both were hot and i saw some video. Ps five possibly on a shelf store shelf somewhere where maybe they had sort of contained it on purpose to see what would happen and basically says ups was hot. Turn you know like at adequate ventilation

"george foreman" Discussed on 710 WOR

"Spokesperson now backto passage to profit once again. Richard and Elizabeth Dear Heart There was this board game and it still exists that I used to play in college vegetable, and I still remember from years ago that there was one clue that our team was supposed to give it. I was the one who was drawing it. And what I drew was a butterfly and a bee. And it was supposed to be a person. So that was George Foreman. No, no, no, I get it. You can kind of guess that our guests had something to do with this. So so nobody guessed it, though. So our guest is Rob Angel, the inventor of Pictionary, Rob the wasn't we'll have such a fun K. It's like charades, but you're drying it on paper kind. So where did the idea You come from Rob. Victory started. Not with a big idea. We're not all big ideas. Start with a dream or this big plan minded mind started. Basically, when my dad got fired from his job I was in college. On. I was going to be my father. You know, I was going to be a businessman and I was going to get a business degree. And I was going to run a company. But about halfway through myself here, he gets fired. And so now, all of a sudden, I'm thinking this guy my role model. It was the president's company gets fired if he had fired. He's not in control. I wanted to be in control of my future. I want to be controlling my own destiny. I put myself through college on it. But I said I'm never gonna let anybody have control of me. I'm going to do my own thing. I'm going to be an entrepreneur. I'm gonna start my own business. You know, that's really a great story. I worked for large corporations up until I was 45. It took me 25 years in the workforce to finally get that message. And this is a show about entrepreneurism. That's one of the things that entrepreneurs jet If they do it right. They get to be independent, and they get the kind of freedom that you saw it from a very early age, and it's amazing that you're able to make it work so well and it is all mindset. There's no difference from what you're doing. You know, you still have to go to college or you still have to get a job. But it's your mindset of what you want to accomplish. And that's what switched for me in that moment, because everything I knew vanish, so I had to reinvent myself How I wanted to see Myself, and that's a little bit forward in life until I discovered picture. How did you come up with the idea for that? After I graduated and moved in with three buddies, and one day when my roommate says Hey, You want to play a game? We call its rays on paper. Now. 23 years old, just graduated college. I'm thinking sure there's an opportunity. The opportunity was just to have fun. I didn't see it is a business. I didn't see this. Oh, my gosh, I've seen we started playing. We played all night. Guess what. The next night we played all night again and again and again, So the wheels started turning. So I was looking for an opportunity, man. Think maybe If I can put this fun into a gay then maybe I could have a business. Or maybe there's something here and that was the genesis. And then I panicked before I got started. We could talk about that as well. I think it was smoothly doesn't write, but that was the genesis. That was the That was my one of my moments that I could make a board game out of this that you've built this up yourself right, and then eventually sold it to a larger company. What were the steps that you took? There was 17 years for me to build it. To the stage where I sold it to motel. So there's a few steps. But once I had the idea, and so I'm thinking to myself this make a good board game. But as I say, I kind of panicked because I was still in the mindset of being a waiter is waiting tables. I was 23. I told myself I didn't have the skill set. I didn't know what I was doing. Didn't have partners and I could see picture in the store shelf. I could visualize that. But I couldn't quite get my head around all this step necessary to get there. And so I shut down my panic. I just couldn't get out of my head. I overthought everything. So I had to take a little time out. As I call it. I put everything on pause. For two years, two years, But it was never left my mind of how many times have you had an idea? You get out of the shower or you're playing baseball. Whatever I was, this beautiful idea comes to your mind, and you may even write it down. Those that you forget about it, or there's too many steps where you've got distractions, which there are plenty And then it just goes away. But some of those ideas, they just kind of stick with you. And this was one of those ideas. So something kept telling me over and over and over to do this, But I was trying to solve a physical problem. Once I got past mental stage, my physical problems putting words Into the game. I don't know how to do it. So I had to figure that out. And then I could get moving forward. Guess what Trivial pursuit comes along. I remember getting the box, right? Open it up. Look at this car and I see the word polar bear written on a card and I go. That's how you make picture and put words on cards. You said. When you were starting out, you question whether you had the skills to run the business. And you did have a dad who was a president at one point, So maybe when you were growing up, you heard a few things. But that's a challenge that most entrepreneurs face is they have an idea, But getting the skills to actually put it all together and execute on it is Is an important step. One of my superpowers is I know my limitations. I know what I'm good at. And I know what I'm not good at. You know, I acknowledge my shortcomings and I didn't want to run a business. I didn't really have the skills. But even if I did I want to sell market and promote. So when you know what you're good at Fill in the blanks around you. One of the things about entrepreneurs, friend of mine works with a lot of entrepreneurs and asked, what is the number? One reason on prayers fail. It's not because of lack of money because they think they could do it all. You can't I can't. And if I tried, it wouldn't have worked. So I needed a graphic artist and I needed a business partner. Somebody to run the business. I'm not a CEO. I'm okay giving it to somebody else. When you're talking about running the business, you're talking about things like Setting up payroll. Oh, are setting a bank accounts those kinds of things absolutely. You need somebody to do all the cross team, not the eyes. But if you're going to give somebody a bit of your company If you're going to have a partner with an equity position, they need to do more than just those physical things. That's okay. They need to share your vision. They have to be excited. They have to share your values moving forward. They have to be proactive and collaborative. This isn't just a matter of finding somebody to send apparel. You can pay for that Nazis but getting a partner. That is invested in you in your business and what you're trying to accomplish. That's the intangible. That's what you need more than anything else in your partners. And my two partners were exactly that. If somebody doesn't see your vision, I mean things are going to go wrong. And if you don't have that vision in your mind, you're going to get discouraged and they're going to go. Okay. Well, I'm not doing this anymore and leave them because they don't see the end result right along the time. Have a little faith. We have augur great ideas. I had a great idea. But there was many, many times where I'm just scratching my head going. This is too much work or I don't get it or with self doubt started creeping in again but through it all every time if you know what I've got a passion for this. I love my product. I love my idea. And I just kept going 1 ft in front of the other until I was told that I couldn't go any further. In this case we kept wishing through. We're here with Rob Angel Pictionary fame..

I haven't seen anything or heard anything that would suggest that they won't start the regular season on time there may be some pushback on preseason games maybe shortening preseason games but I fully expect the NFL to a fool season right absolutely and as a die hard.

The unsinkable Tyson Fury took America for a night. Can he keep it?

The unsinkable Tyson Fury took America for a night. Can he keep it?

"Tyson. Very deontay wilder both had unique entrances to the ring on Saturday night but the advantage at once the bell rang was all furious. Wilder was knocked down twice once in the third and once in the fifth round while there was able to extend the fight to the seventh round but fury was too much. Wilders corner threw in the towel giving fury the win by Technical Knockout Fox sports analysts and huge boxing Fan Christopher starred with us. Now good to have you on this one. How surprised were you by the outcome will pick wild during the tenth round? Tko So obviously. I thought he'd win. I was surprised he lost. I would not have been surprised. If fury had one in a decision it was a close fifty fifty. A lot of people are saying. It's a fifty fifty fight. I wouldn't have been surprised at off. He just outboxed him for trail round right but for him to march forward the way he did and knock him out. That's the problem. He was saying he was GONNA do it. You know in the premiums fight and I thought he was just talking noise right right and I thought he may be trying to throw wilder off. But here's something I have said since. Wilders become champion and been this prominent fighter and this is why despite his all time high knockout percentage despite his record no one really has ever put him in the class of Tyson Ali. Form and frazier any rocky Marciano. Any of the really great heavyweights. Because the fact is he can't box. He cannot box he has this. That's you his fight against Louis Ortiz. Recently he was getting shut out every round he knocked him out. May One St Right. And so what? What fury did there were so great when he took the fight to wilder and he had wilder backing up like around one. I was watching a fight with some guys. And we're like the body language or walters. Now he's backing up all of a sudden he's never nobody knew that right and he lunges with throws the right he steps for with his left and then lunges. You can't do that if you're backing up. And he wants. He took a fury. Took that away from him. He had no answer no he doesn't jive with a as a weapon. He does it to measure so I get the right right. He can't dance. I was even saying it may be equilibrium. Was just off but once after the third round. He looked out on his feet. I was saying run. Just move until you can get your wits about you or whole you wits about you. And he didn't even know how to do that. Look he showed a lot of heart. He showed tremendous heart because a punch drunk for the last four. But and I'll say this finally. I hope I'm wrong. I don't think he can bounce back. I don't think I think the best chance. He has the balance about that. Furio bounce back thinking fury. I think his best chance of bouncing back is to fight Joshua and maybe beat him but here you know you're the bully and then you get bullied and we've seen it. George Forman it's a religious conversion and fifteen. Here's a preaching to become when he became when he was a whole different person that one Tyson was never quite the same age. Because you're not the same in your own mind nor do you have that intimidation opponents and Roy Jones. Junior wasn't a bully but he was dominant you. Once he got beat he was never this guy. I just mentally. It's GonNa be so hard for him to bounce back I again. I don't think he could be fury. I definitely don't think it'd be fury but I have trouble in general so going back in history. This is what me very late on Saturday night. I picked wilder in a second round knockout because I thought after Tyson fury had all week predicted. I'm going to knock him out in the second round that he would get a little careless and be vulnerable to the one punch. That deontay did have in that. That Punch you could argue is about as lethal as any punch. We've seen in the history of boxing. I don't know if I've ever seen him more savage right than that one in all it takes is one. Is You know and that? Big trees going to topple. But you have to catch him flush and he wasn't able to catch him with it so we're my head. Went back to a fight. That I wrote about was that I watched. I didn't go to just watched it here. That was the rumble in the jungle. I haven't been more shocked by the strategy and the unfolding of a fight than than I have since I sat watching Ali something that I thought was impossible to the beast. Who Was George Foreman and remember in those days George? Foreman weighed two hundred and fifty pounds. He didn't wait to seventy three. And I thought that was beyond massive and Ali Wade to twenty for that fight so he was given up thirty pounds but he wound but he games he had gained. Wait to find out by hand by. I totally agree but I did not see rope adult coming. Because I don't think he's corner. Saw Rope it upcoming. He didn't tell anybody and he goes and lays against the ropes and let he had worked on his core all through his camp and he just put his gloves on and he just said is that all you got champ. Is that all you got and you just kept trying to chop wood until he just chopped himself down

Muhammad Ali vs George Foreman: The Rumble in the Jungle

"Here's Monte coming across the Robe Muhammad Ali war while he trained for his famous rumble in the jungle against George Foreman. The Robe is a reminder of the political and cultural context of the Times made this one of the most important sporting and entertainment events of the Twentieth Century Tree back in Smithsonian storage would looks like an unassuming. Terry cloth training rogue with simple black lettering says Muhammad Alley and above is his signature so little frayed at the edges here a little yellow represents an icon and a legend who was the greatest that sports has ever produced here comes early. You can see in their very calm. It's age against you. They've got these two American African American boxers George Foreman Muhammad Ali is he lost his title Losses Bertel. Yes he was trying to jump to the current heavyweight boxing champion. The odds were stacked against L. E. Right out of gate because he was older form and had was undefeated formidable opponent Yasser when I'm meet this man if you think the world was surprised when when Nixon resigned wait allow with forms and in terms of the actual the fight in Zaire how did that come about it was with Don King I think they had connections with the people in Zaire and thought this would be like this great news sort of mass spectacle that would elevate interest just in not only the fight but also the nation of Zaire and also like a you know they had this big concert and James Brown in addition tend to be a major sporting event. The rumble in the jungle was also a major musical event James Brown. was there be king was there. The spinners were there this global spectacle well that was none other than legendary boxing promoter. Don King Jitney Super John's they come into one fold and do one thing six thousand miles from home that was blackness that was distributed to accept blackness to help platelets trust practice and into associated separate blackness. We all citizens of the world. It ain't about us being we WANNA be against. Nobody cares about us saying that we for each other so that there was this celebration aberration connecting African culture with African American poultry that both celebrated and exploited in some ways in order to get people excited about the fight by the time that was kind of a new concept but in terms of rumble in the jungle considered one of the most important sporting events at twentieth century. Why do you think that was no long run. There's a lot of big events but they don't always hold up so you have this huge audience championship fight that was like incredible years the Ali Lee story itself and I'll ease rope widow finish to that fight where you got let himself get punched basically and tricked form in and new yet one shot right and was able to accomplish it and that was huge. Ali's rope a dope finish was the key to his victory. He let himself get backed up against the ropes then used his arms to block as many a forms punches as he could once foreman was worn out. Ali made his move. We'll get into rope-a-dope put up a few minutes but just no it was all about outsmarting his younger opponent. Mohammed Ali dancing around the national anthem. I mean I know that like for myself growing up in a Muslim family and my parents grabbing India in the sixties and you know all the fact that he was this outspoken black Muslim. I think there are a lot of Muslims around on wall who sort of took ownership of him in some ways you know like he's one of us and I just remember as a kid the idea of sort of giving giving the middle finger to colonialism and the oppression by not going fighting in Vietnam. Why should I go and fight the White Man's man's war. What have they done for me as a black American so I think there was a real resonance about this fight being in Africa of all places right. I I think if it had been in America I don't think it would have had the same impact sure right yeah. The international scope of it was important and you know he won three lost at one three times james the belt so like that kind of like just adds to this kind of legacy stature that he had also so smart and funny he we know how to use his controversy to kind of help his bank account as well as the bugles fighting so. I think all around just like really is remarkable the term that he's worth remarking upon because he so

Stephen Brunt on Tiger Woods: What kind of heroes do we want?

"Hey, it's Jordan, and I've podcast for you. Commons is Canada's most popular podcast about politics last season. They tried to answer the question how corrupt is Canada this time around. They're investigating our national addiction oil the currency's featuring host Arshi man is called crude. And it's about Canada's relationship with the oil industry. The good the bad the ugly and the weird you'll find Commons wherever you get your podcasts. So go check it out. I'm going to try to tell you today's story the way all probably tell it to grandkids someday. There was this guy a golfer named tiger. He was the best golfer in the world probably ever, you could argue if you wanted to, but nobody who'd watched him play would listen to you. And if that was our story, it would be a boring one, but it's not anyway, tiger was the greatest he had it all the fame money commercials endorsements beautiful wife and adorable children. But he was also a jerk. There were a lot of stories about this. He was rude to fans who wouldn't give kids high fives or sign autographs. He had his caddy yell at people who was a notoriously bad Tipper. He was a sullen guide to play with. He was robotic with the media, and none of those things mattered because he was the greatest until he wasn't just after two on Friday morning. Thirty three year old Tiger Woods. Drove out of his house alone. His car I hit a fire hydrant then a tree police after that crash. His wife left him. It turned out he'd been cheating on her with dozens of women across the country. His sponsors dropped him. Almost as fast as she. Did Ben details of his affairs came out, and they were humiliating. I want to say to each of you simply and directly. I am deeply sorry for my irresponsible and selfish behavior. I engaged in his knee gave out and then his back and even when he felt good enough to play golf. He was bad at it. And then despite surgeries his backup worse and worse until he could barely sit down without pain. He needed a spinal fusion surgery he had it just so he would be able to play with his children in his old age. He said but afterwards he felt better. So about two years ago, he picked up a club and tried to play again, and he could and he started getting better at it on the rest. Well, we'll tell you the rest, but you probably know how this ends. Then he doubted we'd ever see it. But here it is. Turn to glory. So it's Tiger Woods. Now. Redeemed? What is it about him that compels so many of us to root for him despite his flaws? What does the way we cheer for tiger tell us, but the kind of stories that were drawn to and about the kind of heroes. We prefer. I'm jordan. He's rawlings. And this is the big story. Stephen Brent from sports net is one of our favorite guests to talk to you. Whenever sports gets bigger than the games on the field. Why did everybody I know even with people on my production team who don't care about sports watch golf on Sunday? Well, let's see because the greatest golfer of all time came back under what seemed like impossible circumstances in rows right to the top of the sport in a after being written off for really good reasons over the last several years, especially over the last five or six years because he because Tiger Woods is a ground-breaking figure culturally. The people who don't know the wouldn't know Jordan Spieth of walked up their driveway know, who he is the he's he's an icon and a groundbreaker. So we has significance beyond the game. He plays. And because we all love a good redemption story, whether it's true or not we all want to believe that if you turn your life around if you do the right things instead of the wrong things if you follow the rules. You will be rewarded somehow in the cosmic sense. And for a lot of people. I think that's what it felt like I I'm not sure if the greatest I'm trying to think is this. Latest comeback story in sports history. That's a big one. Right. And I have a personal bias on that. Because I saw George Foreman. When the heavyweight championship at age forty six having been away for eleven years, and then come back as a big fat guy had people laugh Ataman lose nine rounds of a fight Nakagawa the tenth. So that was pretty good. But this that probably just me, but otherwise yet may potentially the greatest comeback story in the history of sport, a nostalgia moment for some people. I yeah, I get creeped out thinking of nineties style. Just somebody my age at doesn't nineties is like yesterday. But there's it's an established a moment, you know, this kind of the big three right there. Right. So within the sport historical greatest of all time, and the redemption narrative, and the and the style jet for a certain generation who remember remember when way way back in those nineteen nineties tell me about that. Because that was something that everybody was talking about right after he won is that moment twenty something years ago. Now when the world saw Tiger Woods for the first time. Do you? Remember the first time you saw Tiger Woods. That's good. I know not specifically. I certainly remember the first master's I remember talking about him in the US amateur. I remember him being out. You know, what I know? I take that back. You know, when I saw him the first time, I was at home as a teenager, a young teenager. Maybe not even a teenager yet. And after school. My parents watched the Mike Douglas show, which was a talk show that was on every day like five o'clock in the afternoon, and that's the famous show where they were L. Whereas whereas all man brought him out as a six year old and he had calls. I saw that show. Do you remember when Tiger Woods became I guess the Tiger Woods that we talk about? When we talk about the beginning of this story. When is lapping the field at the masters. I'm one of those moments when he just did something that when he seemed on another planet when he seemed different from all of the rest when he separated himself and that puts him on a very short list with Jordan and alley and what was it like watching him in the late nineties and early two thousands. Well, the guy so I'm not a golf guy. I have to. So is this I read like, I quit playing golf is fourteen. I walked off the course on the second hole. I hated hated the people here that the clothing, I did everything. So I just laughed. I literally just walked off in the middle of the game. And that's why we're talking you. Because this story is golf, so I hate golf and everything about it. But no, he was he was like a he was a superman, right? He was this. And and again, the nontraditional nature in terms of golf the whitest of sports. Yeah. Those days more so than now. But the idea that you could be, you know, someone other than a rich white kid, and and take on the sports or the way they're with Williams sisters and tennis the same that you could you could kind of just going to throw this back through all of that back in people's faces planned courses that were segregated up. You know within my lifetime. Yeah. There were courses that I remember remember the commercial? I think that Nike did about that. He was the first black person to ever play on some of these courses that he'd been playing. Yeah. I do remember that. And that was you know, again, that's a very so you felt like this was righteous to that that he was kicking down those doors and breaking those barriers and thumbing. Knows that the racist and the racist traditions and golf news, you know, total package now that that said the other side of them was completely unknowable. You know, we saw him. He was again public use a public figure, and he's a six year old to a degree. And he was kind of a brand Ike on it was like, Jordan. He was universal. Right. You could you could show that picture in any continent on earth and people say, oh, that's him. But he was impenetrable. He still is I have no idea who that guy is I really don't you know, has left people try to figure it out. And a lot of very fine writers have taken a crack at it. But I have no idea who what's inside them. Do you think we know him better now than we did ten twelve years ago? I think we would like to think we do again, I think under pretending that we know these people is important to us because it gives meaning to something that's otherwise meaningless which guy just put myself out of out of a job here. But you know, it doesn't really matter this stuff. Right. It doesn't. It's funny. You're like putting a little white ball and a hauler Gorna touchdown or scoring a winning goal and overtime and hockey game. Then add up a whole lot. You know, it doesn't even add up to what your doesn't add up art adds up to you know, with art. You can say the the art is the is what's important. So we will forgive people when number one you don't need to know the personality of the person producing yard you. Appreciate the art as a separate thing from them. And number two, you forgive them their sins. Right. Doesn't matter miles Davis horrible person. Right. Like one of the worst people ever, but produced sublime transcendent, revolutionary, art. And that's enough. You don't have to care about him. But but fleet was that's the thing. It's different. Because this no one's I. Yeah. I know it's you can argue make the argument that it's art, but you know, games come and goes Gore's, come and go somebody wins somebody loses. Like I've been doing. I've been writing about this stuff for a long time. It it. It doesn't add up to a la- beans, but if we can give it meaning, you know, if you can kind of imbue it with meeting and say, there's a human lesson here. And there's a human involved in this. Then I think it kinda justifies it. So I think that's part of we want to turn this into a parable. We wanna turn sports into a parable. That's how we understand the world is, you know, through parable as someone who. Who tries to do that and turn sports into those lessons for us. What did you think when I guess when Tigers false started when the news broke of the car crash and the details of that came out any stepped away? I you know, I felt like Klay like the rest of us. You know, it was it was interesting because it was kind of a flash of humanity in there he'd been so packaged and so protected in so manufactured, and, you know, both as a player, you know, by his father, and then certainly by Nike and everybody else who were in the image business image management business to to to be around tiger. I was a couple of times golf tournaments. And you know, there's no, you know, sense of what was behind this thing. And so, you know, I think that there is well, it's what the gossip industries built on right that they're kind of the Makarius thrill of oh, they're like us, aren't they? They're just like us. As a real under the Nike. Yeah. But especially on a flawed Cuban, right? So yeah, he may be rich, and he may be handsome, and he may be may have this beautiful wife. And but really he's like, you know, the the bad guy down the block, you not like you because you would never know that he was like the bad guy down the block. He has flaws. He's he's he's human in a so, but I I think there's a little bit of glee that goes without sometimes kinda, you know, the the whole shot and Freud thing, right? That you're you're you. I think a lot of people kind of were excited about it. You know, in some ways and said there, you go, you know, you may have thought you were something else. But here's what you really are. But I think it would it mostly revealed was a guy who I again, I'm not going to I wouldn't try and put a framework aunt and say, he was you know, all about golf and then never developed the other dimensions of his humanity. I have no idea. Like, I I don't know who the guy is. I don't pretend. But I think the impulse there is to say, yeah, he's he's a he's he's a flawed human being like the rest of us. And again weirdly to take some satisfaction from it. Well, there is that narrative that we probably like to put on. Sports stars because they're bigger and faster and better and richer than us that they are missing out on an essential part of humanity because they had to focus on this game since they were three years old. And they missed the whole rich tapestry of life that we got. Yes. No. And that's a great point. Right. That is a great point that, you know, the those character lessons you learned by being a really crappy little league player, right? For instance, or how to sit on a bench or being dumped by various girlfriends or ignored by others or just understanding failure that these guys were believed they were impervious to it. But in fact, you know, everybody gets their come up at some point. But again, that's that's kind of a religious theme. Isn't it? It really is. Yeah. Well, it's the it's the new idea of the human experience. Right. And that we all kind of go through the worst valleys in our lives. And it's what comes after that makes it worthwhile. Theoretically, you're radically. Yeah. Theoretically, or you know, it could be just all pointless, which would be another another more bleak way to look at it. We'll how unlikely was the next peak after that Val. Because it wasn't just the personal life scandal. It was like I mean you cover lots of athletes who try to come back from Steph. If I asked you five years ago, Steven what's the chance that I see? Tiger Woods win another green jacket snow slim two years ago. Right. Look, it's not about and it's not about the personal life stuff in this sense. Because look he was quite capable of winning golf tournaments while his personal life was apparently you're Radyr chaotic he managed to keep those things separate as when it was the physical stuff. It's one is back when you know, this guy who could barely bender bent over to pick something up off the floor two years ago the back. You can't swing a golf club with with that. You know, I think physically that idea that no matter how hard he worked his body at broken. And that's you know, way that it was not it did not appear to be able. So he could try as hard as he wanted to and he can live as clean life as you want to do and all of those things, but it didn't matter because this machine was broken. So I I don't think anybody hearing those stories from twenty sixteen twenty seventeen about his back kind of whispers because. It wasn't very public thought. You know this. No, there's no chance right? He can't go out there and compete. We can week out. And then he kind of comes back, I guess about a little over a year ago now and starts playing golf and laying. All right. And even then I don't know about you. But it was like watching an older athlete play out his years with some semblance of what he used to be. But not the same person, certainly the British the British Open right in the open championship. Right. Where you come thought. You know, he's he's not that far off and it's not like, but it's a different year. Right. It's a different vibe was a different vibe in at the masters because you know, the the old vibe is the, you know, I'm going to I'm going to destroy you. I'm going to destroy the golf course, which is what really I'm going to destroy the rest of you in this tournament. And that kind of Uber confidence that he had. I thought the most interesting thing watching that last round was watching him play the eighteenth hole, so carefully so super carefully. Right. Because you know, again, I would have been it would have been just insane you up there and hit a driver at that point, you know, because God knows and and but just. Kind of watching him play a really safe bogey to win that tournament. That's that's not in some ways. That's the anti-tiger. Right. It's just but it was it was smart. It was the right thing to do. And really the way he won that the way you try in that last round was by being kind of dog it and watching and consistent and then watching other people fail around him. It wasn't like he just sees them by the throat they had to fail. So that's a little different. If we're going to do the metaphor thing. Again, he humbled himself in front of the eighteenth hole. And is that can we read into that anything about his new life? I mean, a lot of people talked even before this tournament about how he just wanted to win for his children. Right. And he wanted his kids to see daddy win. And that's not the old tiger. Yeah. And who knows who knows who knows this guy enough to actually say that. I have no idea. I think he probably likes being tiger. Yeah. And I thought the and the chance to be tiger one more time at forty-three. That'd be pretty cool. Right. That'd that'd be an yes, it'd be great to have it. Do it in front of your children? Who'd never really got to experience it in to shut up the nose of everybody who ever said anything about you, there'd be a lot of things that you would take satisfaction from. But again, this is a guy who has programmed to be that that thing that character that kind of golf playing robot from the time he was a toddler, and you know to have that. It's right Thompsons got a new book about kind of greatest the kind of the the nature of some of the greatest of all time athletes him Jordan criminal for the other two are, but is his take on tiger is among his takes on tiger. Now, he's a great writer of golf and a Greg. I was around the sport is you know, that he thinks tiger hated the sport that whole first phase that he he was incredibly good at it and hated every minute of it because it had been forced and imposed upon him. So again, if I'm going to play amateur shrink here, I could talk about them being liberated in this second half and doing it for himself and for his own reasons rather than someone else's reasons and not having the daddy figure hovering over in them and being the daddy himself. And but like now, I'm a sports I'm being a sports writer here. Just extrapol-. I saw that column come into view. I just don't know if it's true, right? I honestly don't I have no idea. I I've no idea we know what lies in his soul. But I don't have any idea. What lies in most people souls? Right. It's we, but we go seeking it. We go seeking that story. Yeah. We're trying to find the meaning we're trying to find the meaning. Yeah. It's and you know, and then tomorrow, we'll try and find the meaning and something else. But this one looked the one thing as a sports writer sports writers people. I was asked to do cheer. We cheer for stories. Yeah. I've been lots of press boxes. Lots of press rooms everybody. Cheers for the story. Everybody got what they were cheering for and you'll end fan through the really that's what fans want you wanna. Yeah. You support your team and you support the uniform. But man, there's nothing like a story is there. Well, here's the question. Then how come I was and probably you were certainly millions and millions of people were cheering so hard for a guy who objectively from the little that we do know about him, isn't that great guy at least hasn't been and cheering form as a huge underdog went objectively. He's one more majors than anybody. But one person and he's one hundreds of millions of dollars because we're flexible. We as a species are very flexible, I wanna feel like we shoot for a real underdog. But we can you know, you can turn it. You know, think about watching the March madness if you have no real rooting interest. And so there's two schools on there. You have no idea who they are. You have no idea who those players are. But you can construct something around that game where when you know, east west North Dakota state beat somebody you go. That's the greatest thing I've ever seen your route informant that basket goes in. And then you go onto the next thing we we do construct stuff like that. And you know, he's like that the idea of the fightback that's really fight back from adversity fight back against the impossible. And the character stuff as I said, it's tricky we could because sport has been a place where we've confused being good at something having great motor skills or winning the genetic lottery, or, you know, working hard or all this up at everybody works hard. Right. We we do confuse I with character. Sometimes those things are blurred might that. You know that he's a character guy. You know? That's that's why that's why he succeeded. Not because you know, he was born this way. A or had some advantages or because there's something else inside. We got we go for that. And a lot of time and the flip side of his we're we're quite willing to ignore the opposite with where somebody could be like Michael Jordan's. Not a nice guy. Right. There's not really any suggestion. That Michael Jordan's a nice go. No there's like with tiger. There's plenty of stories to the contract. And you know, Allie was a terrible husband and a crappy fodder by and large. Now, there's also a political social components rally. So that's you know, it's a little bit different. But as I was saying before about, you know, the separating the art from the artist you can do that with our, you know, Pablo Picasso is bad guy. Right. Really bad guy. But it didn't stop anyone from treating him as Picasso during his work that way. Well, you don't have to cheer for Picasso. You don't and you can see you know, it. It gets tricky with the, you know, the Woody Allens of the world, you know, it gets it gets into some dicey territory there. Maybe I'm not sure anybody's going to listen to a Bill Cosby monologue the same way anymore. But but sport, the two things are connected. The two things are connected, and we'd like to you know, we want to kind of link those two things. Say this guy triumphed or this woman triumphed. Because a yes, they were very compact because they worked harder because they had more of that grit and character in, you know, Royal jelly, we we really we seek that. And I'm not saying, it's not true. But I think it's more that we needed to be true. Or we want it to be true sometime like it's a chicken or the egg did tiger win again because he became a better person or because he's winning again. Do we just think he became a better person Ingo? Yeah. And his backup better. Yeah. That to actually could swing a golf club dad like he may he may be a great guy now and totally, you know, Saint Paul on the road to Damascus had a moment where hang on when everything's clear down. And I'm not going to do all those terrible things anymore or maybe just got healthy. I don't know. We'll never know. But the, but the, but the former is way more compelling than the lab.

Doc, even more from fighting. A great guy. We wish him nothing. But the best. Wish must be recovered his management just told me that he's heavily sedated as we speak and he's going into surgery, right? This moment. So like, I said a horrible tournaments for Robert Whitaker. What does this mean for Kelvin? What does the UFC told you? I know it's very fresh. But. You know is he going to get another title shot? What are they going to do with the belt? You have any idea. Day right now, I get to speak with Dana white. He said I personally. Calvin Calvin is the number one contender. He's gonna see what happened. Out. We're going to go ahead and see maybe the winner between Anderson Israel. Covered. You know? Maybe you can do it thirteen. You know, what's what's I'm kind of looking forward to. But let's see what happened. Did they try to keep Kelvin on the card was that ever discussed? No does not disgusting. I spoke to. Dana. And that does not discussed that. Oh, you know. Listen, I think you have a good minivan. Anderson Silva is great. I'm not sure this is going to be a five round or real. Oh. You know, it is what it is. I feel horrible rubber Whitaker. Yeah. I feel bad for coffee too. Under the right. How is he handling? It has been handling the news Kuban workers. Okay. Calvin was ready. We was ready. The Bishop of his life and. We believe he was going to be that, you know, that middleweight champ. But robert. No injuries taken away from the fight. And like, I said, you know. Nothing but respect and we wish him nothing, but speeder recovery, and I hope he's okay. We're talking to. You're not gonna hear me, you know, me get me on the program talking trash in promoting and get on people. But certain situation we have to be human. Absolutely. I think everybody out there. Everyone to give respect keep Robertson. They prayer. I wish nothing but the best talking to manager Elliot. Bill Aziz here on area who wanna show on ESPN radio's presented by Uber. Breaking news out of the world to the USC USC to thirty four tonight in Melbourne Australia on pay per view, Robert Wood. It covers coming gasping for the middleweight title cancelled that flight has been canceled because Robert Whitaker is going under the knife. In a matter of moments in Australia for a hernia certainly wish him the best. I'm curious Ali is Kelvin going to get paid. How's this gonna work because you just went through a training camp? What's the deal? I'm certain UFC has told you what they're gonna do. Can you? Tell us. Yeah. Always come through for me, you know. And he said he was going to kick out. You know, I understand you know, he went to a camp. And and you put a lot of money into it investment. A lot of money into it. And at the end of the day. This is. You know, I'm not worried about him. I know he will be paid. Thanks for doing this Ali very sorry about the news our best to to Kelvin as well. Speak for everyone. Everyone is bummed out about this. We're looking forward to it. I appreciate you coming on for a few minutes. He will take care. He was. And I have no doubt in my mind. Dana white and you'll see them because they're taking care of my guys sounds good. Thank you Ellie. Let's go back to the phone lines. Now talk to more fans. Breaking news again Robert Whitaker out of tonight's made event. Ernie a- surgery scheduled for Madame moments from now in Melbourne devastating news, not only for the UFC. But for Robert Whitaker who continues to get all these freaking bad breaks time. And again, he had shingles. Prior to the last time that they were in Melbourne with him headlining that card was supposed to be against Luke rock hold now. Just hours before the event he has to pull out and is going under the knife Joseph Detroit. How are you? Good. How about you area? I'm doing okay. Good. I just got a few questions for you that I think they should let the winner of tonight. And Calvin fight for the official title Whitaker should be stripped. It's just my opinion. Well, I wanna see how long he's out for this is definitely a bad break. But I typically like to subscribe to the rule that if you don't defend your title or you're not scheduled to fight within a year. Then you should be stripped in this case he last fought in June. So let's see how far he's out. Let's see how long he's out for. I should say let's see how long of a recovery this is needed. And then let's talk about stripping in. But I think right now, it's a little premature to talk about stripping. Because he pulled out last year knee injury. I think it's better for him. You don't have to take some time off. But my second question is not question opinion. True. They're gonna make McGregor verse Copley for the I think it should be Tony Emporia for the interim. Yeah, that's Donald Surani just talking right now from what I'm hearing the interim belt isn't being discussed. I don't think a belt is needed for that kind of fight. I don't think a belt elevates that kind of fight certainly not an interim title. So at this juncture, I think that's just cowboy talking and look he's going to get the fight. It seems like that's the front runner. I don't think you need to push for an interim thing anyone wants it, quite frankly, I think the interim belt would would almost like soil that that fight. I don't think anyone wants to see an interim belt online. I don't think either guys should be fighting for an interim belt when you have guys like Tony dust emporium ally. Doing what they've done as of late. Let's go back to the phone lines and say Hello to Corey in California, Corey how are you? Hey, I'm good. How you doing? I'm doing. Okay. Some some disappointing news, but we still have a car tonight. But yeah, it's it's a bummer. These things happen from time to time in in mixed martial arts and. I mean, this is a big one especially because it's the Australian who's now out of the card. Yeah. Honestly, like you said before man, I don't know how these injuries happened the day of the fight. How much are you actually doing? Such a serious injury. But I don't know it's fight game. And it happens. But. So my original copies I called about it. Now trying to shake up. I was gonna say do you think that Anderson is? His own legacy a little bit by taking these bigger fights with the much younger guys are like the fights with whatever, obviously, they're bigger fights. And he's a big name. And do you think that you have tarnished by throwing them into a fight with Israel, just because if Anderson, but then it turns around and now Anderson is card having a big name for Israel to fight. So do you think that enersen should lay off he's bigger fights? Or do you think he's finer you think his legacy Jenner hurt in the end after all this look if we're talking about tarnishing legacies? The only thing that's maybe tarnished his legacy. So to speak is the fact that he was caught with PD's twice other than that. I mean, I don't think opponents will tarnish anyone's like seeing fact to meet on the elevates your legacy because you're finding the toughest guys even as you're in your swansong so to speak. I like the fact that he's taken this fight. Everyone thought it was a mistake. It's an opponent that he thinks he could beat he's fourteen years older. He feels like maybe he's not as experiences him. Maybe he hasn't fought the kind of competition that he's. So I don't think this is. I mean, imagine he pulls it off great story George Foreman. It's like Randy tour all over again. So I honestly don't think that he's tarnishing his legacy on this one. Let's go to one quick call before we take another break Hamilton, Ohio. What's up man areas? A pleasure speaking with you. I want to go back to the UC days, or so I started hearing your voice. Boy that was handled by the UFC. I am so proud that you've come to where you had with the hard work. You've done to put yourself in today's position. Thank you know, as far as what's happening transplanted melborn sad. And that's the core. So the nature of the game. My question to you is at forty three year old is now put himself in position we he's probably going to be having to save this card. I understand that. There's not a lot of four weeks on your old man at his weight. They can do anything except maybe defend themselves. Does he really have a chance to see wing? And do you see this only in the heavyweight World War forty yours can compete one or two times? This gentleman is not tarnishing his world. It just a building him being allowed to do this because of his name and his past of fighting really realistically can this man really compete at this level with this young kid. I mean that remains to be seen. I don't think it's a bad matchup firm. In fact, I'd say he's too big of an underdog. I'm curious to see if he can turn back the clock tonight. But yeah, it's a great call to great point. The best news is this flight hasn't been canceled. So we're about to find out in a matter of moments in a matter of hours, whether or not Anderson Silva can hang with Israel to Sonya after the break. We're going to be joined by my colleague, my partner shell son. And he's in Melbourne. I want to get his take on things. He knows coming gasoline almost better than anyone. He was the one who drafted him on the ultimate fighter way. Back when devastating news Robert Whittaker's out of tonight's UFC two thirty four main event. And I just got details about how it all went down. I'll tell you about all that and more right after the break. You're listening to Hawaii's may show right here on ESPN radio and ESPN app this
