"Hi there. This is Jimmy powers you know I like to think I've been around the sports world a long time thirty years worth, but I'm just a cub scout compared to grantland rice. He served fifty three years over a half century, and was loved by more people, perhaps than any person including any are all of the president's make no mistake, granny, not only covered history he wrote. Naturally the heritage of the NFL on the chosen few the man who could put in words all the drama excitement, and thrills of what they saw, and pounded out over the jammed wires of the various press services, so as ever out of necessity were born great sports writers of America. Damon Runyon Ring Lardner Paul Calico and Grantland Rice CALICO has since turned his talents to fiction lardner runyon are gone, and so is grantland rice. Now, it's hard to say if we will see the likes of granny rice again today with radio, and TV most fans here or see the big fights, the world series, the Rose Bowl the Kentucky Derby and other top-flight events. The need for an eyewitness is gone and most sports writers today. Just give the facts. Yes Granny's book may well rest on. How rice all life through those great sport figures for? He coined a philosophy a way of life when he wrote. Golf causes more self torture than any game chart of Russian Roulette. The quicker the average weekend Golfer can forget the shop. He has dubbed or knocked offline and concentrate on the next shot. The sooner he begins to improve and enjoy golf. Like Life Golf can be on bling, but little good comes from brooding about mistakes. We have made the next shot in golf or in life is the Big One? Into the tumult and shouting has gone the best of granny rice. His vividness is eternal enthusiasm, which kept him young and heart to the very end. Another granny's cradles was. If fighting is your business fight. What he was telling us is whatever walk of life you are in. Give it all you've got. And Granny Rice summarized his life and the way he lived when he wrote. When the one great score comes to mark against your name, he writes not that you wanna lost, but how you played the game. Sounds like quite fella. Rub shoulders with down through the years, doesn't it? Well, I had the privilege, and I recall the first time I met granny. It was in a press box on a rainy day in Cleveland. We were waiting for the ball game to start. Granny came over to me I was a young reporter, put his arms around me welcomed me to the press box and introduced himself to me. Well. You're going to rub shoulders with granny rice to and believe me. We're about to embark on the greatest. The most wonderful journey through the world of sports ever live by one man. We're going to learn about people and the things that granny seldom touched upon and his daily column. Why didn't speak to granny for a month? Following the first Dempsey tunney fight? How Babe Ruth and granny met for the first time the true background of Notre. Dame's immortal football chant. Let's win this one for the Gipper, also the race between man of war and John Deere. What Earl Sandy thought of as one wild ride aboard big red. And comparison between native dancer and Man of war. You'll also meet Thai cobb as few, but granny knew them. You'll learn about granny's last look at big bill tilden the living analogy between Bantam Ben Hogan, and Gene Tunney. How and why? Granny fell for his best girl in Sports Babe Didrikson Harris. and. What was Bobby Jones's biggest victory bigger than even his immortal Grand Slam? You'll be in Berlin. Win Olympian, Jesse. Owens knocked Adolf, Hitler right out of his box seat when he zoomed off with everything but Adolph's mustache. These are but a few. I'm going to do this series. And I person, and for good reason, that's the way rice wrote the tumult, and the shouting. There is much about first person narrative that lends a warmth and credibility that somehow doesn't ring true when one switches to the more impersonal third person. So with a sincere by out of the spirit of Grantland Rice, a spirit that remains vibrant and a sports loving America. He did so much to create. I turn to page one. And in first person begin the tumult and shouting. For the record I was born at Murphy's borough. Tennessee on November, first eighteen eighty. My father and mother Mr and Mrs Bowling Hinden Rice were two very gentle people from a state that gave the nation Andrew Jackson Davy Crockett. Nathan Bedford Forrest, John Be Morgan and little Giffen flaming symbol of the confederacy during.

Out now to the right of second with two strikes on the hitter. They want to swing dribbler, right side, waiting on Gurry L. He's got it takes the first is over Justin Burland, or has not allowed a hit grew six. Yes. Sometimes when you have a no hit bid through the fifth, or sixth, any, you feel like hey, let's just wait out and see if it becomes serious. Whenver Landers on the mound. It's serious. But it all broke up in the top of the seventh first pitch swing drills this one to center field, long run for marines Nick. And that is outta here. Straightaway centerfield for Jose. Ray you breaking up the shutout and the no hitter. Sparks he Steve sparks Gabi, EMMY seven ninety AM. The Astros went on to win the game five to one ver- Lander dominant and he spoke to reporters after the game of Part company. of part of a few Winston. He's always seems to be one play. There's one guy oil on this planet that could make that place field of this Jake. So I was find thought I thought Jake catch since over. I'm going get it chernoff over for NAT it. But yeah, I thought pretty pretty confident that the devil's own on this up here. Through one change up. So I don't know. I didn't sweep. It's on that. I got a pop up. The slider was the pitch tonight. I feel like I had a good curve ball. But with the way the game was going having not given up ahead. I didn't want to, you know flip one over the plate and, and eight on that pitch win. The slider was as good civilized. So I was predominantly fastball slider for the most part today and at good field in control of both of them. So. Recipe for success in Anaheim the angels in the twins. And the angels had a three to one lead early. And then this happened. Hi fly. Deep down a line and. Tiger. Homerun line. And homerun on three successive pitches. Dick Bremmer on Fox Sports north, the twins went on at it's more runs. They win that game eight to three before the game angels announced. Angelsen Simmons or shortstop has a grade three sprain. His ankle that's a serious sprain. But among the angels, Andrew Symonds is known to have super healing power. So we'll see a quickly he's able to come back the Padres played the diamond backs and Eric hosmer came through for San Diego. So now two to one Chato on first hosmer up, swing to the purse bid, and Santona deep left field this, what is up it out? To rod home. Rod for Eric hosmer. And just like that the batteries lead at ninety seven point three the fan the Padres win the game. Three two to the Rangers beat the Mariners five to three with help from Joey Gallo on dick.

I've never heard this French version of sorry. Berry berry Andrei didn't know I Russell is mad at him to no had no idea. He just knew that rusted. Unlike him and something happened, and it was maybe this headline of this piece Adrian that he didn't read the headline amid wedding. But are Mr. unreliable, but it was about Durant. And it was after that playoff thing. And even Trammell said when he saw the web edition of his art he wins. He was like a and then he's like, well, whatever it will just be the web. So I was still grantland when we wrote that piece and a big reason, by the way. Yeah. It was a great. It's a great piece. It's a great reroute. I did it on my I tweeted at this weekend. If you want to check it out there. But one of the reasons we did it was because I I was just so fascinated by how okay see controlled not only the media, but who got to talk to their players how their players acted and this had been really like a four year problem with them. So we sent Curtis down there to kind of get any wrote this awesome piece. He's so good, by the way. Yeah. He's he's amazing. So the point of the piece was basically. These guys act like this. Because this is what the o k c organization wants this is what they push as you're with us or against us. And. You see it with this? Next question stuff. These guys they walk around that God's in o'casey. It's us against them just with everything, and it leads to I don't know. I think it's really bad behavior. So that, but that's one thing on the other hand. I don't really care because those press conferences are so inane they're such a waste of time that I kind of agree with them. Like, I don't wanna fuck and be here you guys don't want to be here. None of us want to be here. We're going through this charade. This custom that has been in place for the last fifty years. But I hate it. And I can't hide it. So I don't blame him for doing it. But at the same time, I think it's shitty. That is doing it. I'm torn on it as my point it feels a little bit. Why arguing backflips right now, which would become political like, I know who like the anti-bat flip. People are pro bat flip people are and that there's no like, wow. You know, maybe some bad flits are stupid, and other backflips are awesome. That's kind of what it feels like a little bit. Because there's so many people that let's just say hate us. Ok the media. They're just not that impressed with us. Yeah. They're like it was a two guys in fucking sweatpants. Couple of microphones like that's us right now like shit. We didn't juuling you didn't. You know, what I mean like, I get it. And I used to think that when I wasn't doing it. And then I went and did it. And so I think there's always been a lot of I wouldn't even call it animosity to call it deeper than that. I think there's just a lot of people that look at us in the media and think we're all fucking losers. And honestly. I have friends that work in this business that sometimes I look at something they say or something they right were I'm like what? And there's other people that are in this business..

"grantland" Discussed on That's What She Said with Sarah Spain

"Yeah. Always something. Yeah. So if you had an idea it didn't have to be a good idea about sports. You know, what I mean, which has been my entire career was just like, you have ideas. But at the have to have a sports peg with is places like we did early on. We did thing called the Super Bowl where we just sort of bracket about soups. Right. I mean, it's dumb idea. It's a pun joke. But like you can't necessarily like walk into sports nation in the morning and be like we're doing the Super Bowl today guys. And they're like, okay. Let's talk about Brett farve or whether or not he's gonna retire because you know, and it And was. it was great. So so you're loving doing it you're producing. Audio and video content for them. You produced the grantland basketball. Our and grantland features. You got a whole bunch of awards for that. Right. I mean nominations and national magazine award nominations etcetera. So tell me about creating grantland features and how big of a step up or maybe it wasn't. But was that a big step up for you in terms of your role and also the kind of the seriousness of the content that you were tasked with lows we had a studio. One of the first things we do is build a studio with very proud of. It's it's sort of like a format that he is still use the Kobe still uses which is like. A two person one person control room. That's adjacent to a studio where this robot cameras and the inside. So there's not like it's like, you're working on a big show where there's there's stage managers and cameraman publicist and producers and researchers and like it's feels like, hey, we're this whole team of one hundred people working in the show where it's like just like the two people in the room. You know, what I mean, it feels a lot more like doing this podcast and doing a big TV show, and we would produce a lot of content from that studio, but that's really just two people in a room talking, and it's like YouTube, and we're putting out like sixty minute clips, you know, what I mean? So it's not necessarily super snack -able Internet-friendly stuff. So what we decided to do after time when we start growing and YouTube to deal with us that was a two year deal, which really kind of like launched us because all of a sudden, you know, seven figure deal an annual budget. All right. We can do things. So we'd started making essentially like documentaries are short features or even just dump stuff going on the road with Bill and doing things. So that we started to vary. Our content a lot more animated. Stuff. So it was like a again like it really just felt like we could do anything we wanted. Which is unlike anything else I've had in my career, and it we certainly started. You know, couldn't do it by myself at get some freelance editors and get some people in and get some kick a couple of headcount, and it just kind of grew pretty quickly. And it was you know, some of the stuff twenty thousand people watched some stuff two million people lost. And you know, how that works for sure you just keep going. So you're doing all the producing and editing and not adding produced at this point. It was like it was like a team you You've got. got people working on all these grant land projects and the son of the Congo. Was that through grantland? Yes. That was one of the features. That was a I got an Email bronchitis. Geordie Georgie villa? And he's a k of represents heard you back. I wanted to something that you guys like you guys come to Africa with us. And I didn't really think it was a real person. You know, what I'm very skeptical. When people read dousing me, even say nice things, I'm just like listening. Are you deadspin? So I had to like I did some recon on him, which means like ten seconds..

"You wrote? I can't remember it was the grantland feature the recent one he just decided he didn't like Tiger Woods. He just didn't like the way Tiger Woods had handled some things and few basically feud with them, but wasn't even a feud. It was like you having kissed my ring. So I'm not going to acknowledge you either. And they had this kind of distance between them, and it's hard to imagine. I think he's the last writer who could have done that without everybody going. Wow. You're a huge douche. How are you handling this way? Everybody started with Dan. Yeah. They're like, how dare Tiger Woods not kiss. Dan, Jenkins is ring in the way, Dan told it to me was he went to tiger. When he was first, you know, blowing up, and he said, I wanna talk to tiger and ask him some things. And I think he'd like to ask me some things. Meaning like what was been HOGAN like? Yeah. Or what would the what was what was it like to be on? The course at every major with Arnie he'd like to ask me that in the word came back from Tigers camp like no he wouldn't. And he was not happy about that. And tiger was on the shit list. Forever after that. Yeah. I think golf and boxing. Were the two most sports writer sports right in the seventies. Eighties. Even the nineties and golf. Now, we watch golf and people enjoy in the moment, they tweet. They put little gifts. You're never thinking. Like, I can't wait to read the big thing piece about this. In sl. Three days for now. But the tournaments over six hours later, I'm done. I might hear, you know, the house golf podcast on it. But same thing with boxing used to be the fight than the second part of the whole spectacle was for five days later, the big awesome giant essay about it in that's gone too. Now, we just have Jason gay writing quickey twelve hundred word or for the Wall Street Journal and that and then I don't think about it anymore. Yeah. That's it man. Did a Jenkins ever do the sports reporters, by the way? I don't know. You learn to believe they didn't get as stoop down because all his acolytes were on a Lupu reser. Those were his those are his guys he probably was like, I'm not flying New York for that nonsense. Curtis in our texting there's is great sports book about the history of Sports Illustrated. And there's this. Part about Rick Reilly where? It's an it's small it's like a paragraph. But it's about how as he was really starting to hit it. Big sl. He was basically doing this bad Jenkins impersonation of kind of drinking a lot in the golf clubhouse this one night not on the page, but off the pay off the page, and the and somebody was like it was like watching exaggerated pad Timkin's impersonation. But people are people are offended that he was trying to be Dan Jenkins off the page, which I think is good for the legacy of Dan Jenkins. And then was not cuddly. So then the end made sure everybody knew what was going on. Yeah. Dan was not. But his armor ADEMA. He's all right. Yeah. He he, you know, he was he was the kind of guy who wouldn't let forget wouldn't let people forget something. Like, so we're all the guys from that era. Of sl is the Ford is he's not alive anymore. Right. Frank tie or died Jenkins died. Yep. Mark Kram died. Yep. Andre Gary's long gone long loan gun. Is there anybody left from that? William nack died. That's right. That's another recent one it's been a long last year. So I'll that active Florida Jenkins all recently Jesus, I wanna come back to this. 'cause I wanna do this thing about that. I didn't tell you guys about about sports books at the end and biting, let's hit some let's hit some topical stuff. I. Jason you want to start with this Antonio Brown. He's going to buffalo. People are starting to write pieces about it..
