"You what he said next Scott in for Steve we're in the middle of the four x and we were just discussing. A couple of different avenues related to taxing here in the in the in the state, but primarily Milwaukee in Milwaukee county, you had the CEO of Greif that prominent to engineering planning design firm grave making the point that maybe we take these stadium sales tax, and we use it for you know. What else the Milwaukee county zoo the museum markets center for the performing the domes? No, it's gonna okay. So we started saying why not allow other? Non-tax related money, right? Be used for these endeavors for the domes for the museum things like that. And I said that the eight four seven you nailed it in a two I think there's something that Wisconsin can can be on the ground floor on in something in other states. Have also jumped on two words legalized gambling. And I'll I'll maybe legalize sports betting. I'm telling you the landscape is changing right now in this country, and until Wisconsin legislator the legislation. The leaders of this state wake up and recognize the cash cow that is to be had from the money that the state can draw from legalized sports betting until they realized that I think we're going to be lagging behind that would be an avenue of money that could potentially be funneled for some of these causes for some of these purposes. How do you do it when when someone thinks betting we we're thinking bookies that type of thing? How how do you legalize sports? In wisconsin. Keep in mind in Wisconsin. It's against the law for what is it? You'd have to change the constitution, you need an amendment to the constitution. You have to change that first and foremost, I think if it's going to happen. I think it will happen you'll see it and the the Indian gaming casinos Parramatta, WADA me ho chunk Oneida things. Like that for that to happen. You need to change the com- passed between the tribes and Madison, I think that is certainly a lot easier van statewide for. But I'm telling you the part of the contact that only they can do it too. We are looking since the supreme court ruled that last year just last year right Murli two thousand eighteen or so that paves the way for legalized sports betting throughout the country. We are one of only I think we're about one of thirteen twelve thirteen states that have not recently introduced a Bill to explore options. Like this. Meanwhile, you have of course, we all. These new bout Nevada. Right. But you have New Mexico West Virginia, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Rhode Island who now have full-scale legalized sports betting. Okay. You got places like Illinois, Minnesota Michigan that have recently introduced a Bill but having passed it yet. And then New York, and what does this Arkansas have recently passed? I just think that that is an avenue for money that the state could. Draw from to finance some of this stuff. Right. Yeah. With that not being outside the box type thinking situation that I would have called for ten minutes ago. No, I'm just trying to figure out how you do it. And where is it set up? Are we talking about going to pot Awada me? And that's how the how is the state going to get money. We'd have to set up its own shop. Well, no, the bookies just wander around all the different Esther Brooklyn every couple of bookies, you know, where it is. It's right here. I'm holding on my phone, and I think a lot of it is is right here in the palm of your hands or on your computer. I mean, it's something that it'd be it'd be able to do it real easily electronially at your fingertips. But if the state. Gets in that game. No pun intended. They can work with some of the money that can be drawn from a remarkably deep part of funds. And then if you want to say, well, isn't that still tax? Yes. But it's not the blanket tax of I live in this county. I live in the city. I live in this state. I pay experts. Whether I like it or not that way. Yes. The state is taking some of the money. But only if you yourself are participating in gambling, then accents. Yes. I think I think that is. I think that is something to explore a lot of hurdles you'd have to clear. Oh, yes. Yes. And you know, it's funny. We'll we'll end it on this. If you look at the map got a color coded map of the states that have either passed a Bill considered a Bill or have not done anything. And we're one of them kind of color coded as I say, you can look at a lot of the. Politics, and the ties of conservatism in some states that you're not gonna really see the inroads for gambling more. So than liberal states. Little more willing to go down that road. I think if governor Walker was doing office. I don't know that we would have ever seen that happen. I think now that he's not you might maybe. Just a little bit little bit. Anyway, sports betting. I'm just saying there is money to be had there. And I think we're going to be lagging behind a lot of other states and communities around the country. Here.

"I I it just weird how it's just the fate work is into certain teams and their careers low up or they can just go through always wonder, if dare jeeter would have been playing in Milwaukee would be Derek Jeter. Well, that's been talked a lot about free agents twenty nineteen class for the clippers. I feel like part of the discussion has been well so and so is a quieter guy. Like, quiet, Leonard, for example, quiet guy. I've heard people talk all the time. Well, the clippers might be nice option for him because he's southern California guy. And he knows it won't be this giant spectacle. Like, it will be the Lakers now, obviously, there'll be more media than ever because it's a guy like that. If you were to sign, but I think that is part of the Bilton discussion about the clippers. It will. Be quieter. Kind of like the angels didn't second team. You are not part of the big conversation every single day when you're good. You're all you're going to be up there. I think that's something that maybe they even pitch in some ways of look you can start us off with kind of the quiet franchise. And then we can build into something. Everyone's talking there's certain people athletes. I mean, they're all males actually hold that Georgie are FM mills there's some people who can't playing for the Yankee. But they could've been minutes you have that insert markets. Yeah. The yankees. Hey, Steinbrenner, you're the Knicks or you can go play in Brooklyn or you play for the amazing. Right. I it's just what happens there. Why do you think people get overlooked in our business? Well, I think our business as a lot to do that. We're in media. We're the people who decide you know, what stories go in the paper everyday. And for the record. You're not doing it on purpose. No, no, no. It's not Andrew guy says, okay, I'm going to overlook you. But it's you know, I wrote the Tobias Harris story final right that maybe are subscribers don't hear about that. Your don't hear that side of him. So just because the way he's been playing, and you know, I've got to know him a little bit. And I think he's an interesting guy habits way he carries himself. I thought. Okay. This time to write it to buy here story. But we're the people they arbiters in the media. We did side who stories are worth telling. So there's a lot of guys in the clippers. I'd like to tell right now. Mike mantras Herrell. He's nother overlook guy. Exactly he's forward and he's only twenty four twenty five years old. But he's a guy who comes off the bench. He changes his pairs of shoes at halftime every game. He's a huge sneaker head. I goes to Portland, and basically that guy so you probably heard him for a little slam. They did something about. But he's a guy who is vital to the clippers right now. He comes off the bench. He is guy who always giving you double digits points and close double digit rebounds in probably twenty minutes. I mean, he's pure energy. He's synthesized energy. Like this six foot eight frame. He's just amazing for his ability every night to bring it that second unit for the clippers. He basically gives them life. He is a guy who is very overlooked. And now is getting some. Shine nationally and regionally do you ever talk to these guys about how they don't get attention. You can't go up to because I mean, they know you can't be a nobody's looking at you as you're trying to it's usually come up pies. Part of the discussion about do you think people are paying attention to your hot start? This team's hot start. You know, are are you do you feel like you are the team that people don't care about? I think that has kind of run its course now because they were very good team for two weeks. They were in first place in the west. So I think people know who they are now. But during that time, you know, mid November late November. There were a lot of times where you'd be like people are giving as a respect and there'd be a lot of if the Lakers had our record right now. I think that we would be blowing up, and they just weren't that way..

"Every single game Lakers, clippers USC UCLA. Angels. Dodgers, you'll feel a different vibe when you walk into whatever stadium or clubhouse or locker room. And I like going when there was nobody there. I I liked going to angel games. Because you get to know the players a little bit better. You get to know someone. But some of the players told me when they're playing I signed here because I knew there would be no media bothering me, especially some of the Latino players come down here income down here. They don't worry about me here. So they want to hide other players want attention, but they're getting overlooked in your dealings with different athletes who are some of the athletes that you're like if somebody would just give them a little bit more shine not just here in LA when you're covering or you're covered Oregon football. So everybody's making a big deal in Oregon in LA who did you have if they're right Dennis Dixon? I what was overlooked. Was honestly a single player. But there was a Wild Thing happen at Oregon. So I know Oregon football because I cover them, and I grew up in the area. And what was wild about them was that they had the same. Poor of assistant coaches like four or five dudes were there for almost thirty years apiece. Look at USC right now, the assistance are being turned over all the time. There's crazy turnover like a player might show up in for five years have four different coordinators coaches and organ they had like the again the same core running backs coach offense of even it was like that for at least twenty five years special teams coach and that went away in two thousand sixteen when they fired the staff, and it's never gonna be like that again. So I think that was one of the rare things that was totally overlooked was that that continuity was so much of an outlier among college football staff and the entire country. And it really was a thing that got them over the hump to become the great program in my opinion. So anything about something that was wow. Than my time not one player, but just kind of a phenomenon you look back, and you're like how did that happen? These guys clue had reasons leave and yet almost one of them did like a player. I think about right now is the same thing that angels at for a while my social had but black Joe Madden. He had his assistant who were there locked in. And then you start changing guys wanna go run their own ship. That's fine. And you give them that. But you're right that continuity, the teams don't have that. It gets overlook the base where you have everybody who's there on the same page right now. I love watching Antony. Simmons the short lofted angels Simba my goodness. And I love watching him when he was with the Braves. You're okay. This is as good if that dude is on the dodgers billboards. Okay. Kiki Hernandez on the angels. Nobody's paying attention to him..

"You're like that might be the one contract that might wear them down. But now I mean by series as the Western Conference player of the month. But might be the best player on the team, at least the way he's playing. So they're getting a lot of that money. So even that contract looks really good. So I don't I think that there's a lot of guys who come in this year have been overlooked. Maybe not just in the context of LA and the Lakers and everything going on here, but their whole careers are the last five or six years at a career. I think Daniel is one of those guys that people are like, oh, yeah. This guy is a forty five percent shoot from three and extremely dangerous from the bullet. You mentioned the Western Conference player of the most Tobias. Hey. There's and the Western Conference you have Steph curry LeBron James Klay Thompson Russell Westbrook, and thus just to start with how does that guy? Harris get the acknowledgement for the player of the month. I think the using lowest price to be honest with you, really. Yeah. I think that he kind of looked around some of those names, and he mentioned like leaving Yoenis he won the eastern player them. He looked at his stat line, which was absurd. I don't remember off Tom ahead. But it was an absurd. Rebound points says he was like, wow, I saw that. And you look at my stats, and you're like did I really do a whole lot. But I think you have to look at his accomplishment his stats on the first six weeks of the season with the team. And the team was a big surprise the first six weeks, and he was one of the big engines behind it. So I think that's where his staff may get waited a little bit more because you figured, you know, Durant would go off you figure some of these guys would go off and their teams would be very successful. Because of it. I don't think a whole lot of people peg the clippers for being I at the start of December. I don't think they probably had maybe even any of the clippers pegged in all star conversation. Tobias basically played his way into that. Just the way he's built himself into this with his off season training you've been a reporter for a while covered. Elliot's for longtime when I worked at ESPN radio you go to.

"Oh, absolutely. I mean, Steve bomber the owner wants to change that conversation, and that's been very blatant about how they want to be seen as kind of the second team alley which I'm new of see you've been here for a long time. But I think that it's always probably gonna be a degree of. That was probably always be maybe a second team to a huge subsection better record at this point. And yet players this season. They definitely do feel like they aren't being talked about that much. And they don't really mind they like kind of doing their work in quiet. Lou Williams, always says that just keep sleeping on us. And we're going to be okay, we're gonna keep winning and eventually you'll take notice. Yes. But they definitely feel like there's an element of being overlooked in there. But they are okay. With that. At right now because they feel like allows them to do their work. There are whole lot outside distractions and eventually people will come around. I mean, they were telling us in September in Hawaii during training camp. We're going to be a really good team. We're gonna win a lot of close games. We're going to be in every game. And that's come true. So they knew that. And now we're kind of working our way back but was being like, oh, this is a pretty good team. Is it really deep team? And they're like, yeah. We've been telling you this for two months, just flip it back on you. You till your editors. Hey, I got this. Great story. Cool. And I want big space to right? They're gonna say. Yeah. Sounds great. But we're going to cut it in half. You're also fighting for time in the paper were compared to the Lakers were they have three different people writing a bunch of different stories, how do you maneuver around? 'cause you're overlooked your Andrew gripe. I'm just trying to keep my head above water. I feel like with making sure all my stuff's in line in line. But I will say I got a really early taste of where the clippers are in the pecking order of this area when I moved down here, and I was staying with a buddy temporarily and beach, and there's a target there. And I went. To the target. And there's this wall of paraphernalia for all the sports teams in LA from the soccer teams, all the pro teams USC UCLA. There was not a single piece of clippers merchandise there. It was the one missing thing. And I've actually brought that wall of sports gear up to people within the clippers and say about this them live in Manhattan beach. And they say we know about it. You can tell get frustrated because they've tried so hard to turn around the way the city and the region looks at the clippers a franchise kind of a wool begun perennial doormat team. And so they're trying really hard to change that and chase after a big free agent this summer, and yet they still see stuff like that. And they go we still have so far to go the clippers organization. Excellent people working in the front office and marketing department they've done their and when they had Chris Paul and Blake Griffin. That's when the legs were down net that they were gonna take over the city, but they had more is on them. Now, you look at this team Illich, I paid to know what's going on the NBA. I look at the roster and guy. Guy that overlooked Danila gone are as a guy who's been because of injuries always overlooked like the last five or six years because he's just always been hurt who used to be on Knicks. I guess okay. Six overall pick in two thousand eight you know, obviously had his best years. I think in Denver, but he's just always been hurt. And so he's a guy who now I think before the season when he looked at their contracts his deal twenty two million dollars this year. I think twenty dollars next year as well..

"That's a ton more money than there. They're guaranteed eighty. Yes. And if everything works out right for him a hundred eight Hugh up to that. Yes. But for player who has been in trade four times, this would have provided eighty million dollars worth of civility. And so I asked him on a very human level. I understand the point of waiting because you can get so much more potentially. If you stay healthy if you play, well, if a team wants to take that big a chance on there's no guarantee that but turn down eighty million dollars. And there was no visceral response. It was really tough. But he said that it was absolutely something that he and his dad who's agent thought about for a long time. It was not something they decided last July over a couple of days or to this woman. They ought about for a while this scenario if we get offered what are we gonna do? But it was not something that they took lightly by any means, this is a family that very tight-knit. His sister plays college basketball. He works out with the family and your story that you wrote about Tobias. But this isn't like I'm living through my son. The dad is his agent. But he was also George Gervin agent the Ice Man who viewing San Antonio during that era. How many people are paying attention to you? I mean, if he would've played in a bigger market. I would be a Hugh bigger superstar that he was at that time the overlooked factor. He grew up in Long Island. But the dad when he was is a you team would take into the city to get beat up by land, Stephen and those critic gays so did he have that chip on his shoulder? Yeah. I was a kid. He said basketball for him became various serious when he was in fifth grade, which I think is earlier than most people think when they think The base. base climate is set my life to do this one thing basketball's been since late elementary school and those trips to the city they go to Harlem see Kemba Walker. They go to Brooklyn MAC land Stevenson, and he said that was because they were beaten up on kids on Long Island. But you're seeing the soft essentially if you play out there for reasons that make sense or not he felt he was really tough player. But until you prove it against those guys grittier type players as he said, then you're not going to be taking that seriously. So that those trips were about proving a lot to people who hadn't seen him play before perhaps and also proving to himself because I think he realized that point that I can play with these guys. And by the end of highschool is one of the most recruited players in the country you cover the clippers. I was a clipper intern in the early two thousand I grew up in LA, I got to play sports Rena when the clippers ambling crystal was a fan, and I got the plant halftime. And I remember looking around and saying it's not sold out clipper. Intern manage not sold out and third covering the Lakers. And it doesn't matter it just every single night. There's a buzz it doesn't matter who they're playing. And this isn't podcast bash on the clippers more about people being overlooked at the end of the day, though, you're the one percent of the one percent of the one percent professional affect your freak of nature. There's only fifteen on the roster yet do these players with the clippers or run the NBA feel like what I'm the best. Hello pay attention to me, somebody pay attention to me..

"Welcome to the arrive. Early legally podcast. I'm your host, Bethel Durant. Picks to everybody reviewing rating and sharing we have so much fun every single week trying to figure out who we're gonna talk to who gets to come on the show, and you look at them and telling our bosses everybody wants to come on the podcast now because they're having a lot of fun with it. And you start thinking we could talk about LeBron about co we talk about all the superstars in LA with it's such a big market with so many teams, and so many different stories. And that's what I feel like we're complicating here at the early podcast is that we are telling stories about all of LA or LA and don't live in LA very sunny right now in December. So if you're in New York around the world, we try to bring you back home now player who grew up on the east coast Long Island or strong island is the locals would say Tobias hairs the come on, man. You got Bring to me me. a clipper right now. Yeah. Has an interesting story. He's been an NBA for a while and to own account been overlooked traded four times with the clippers though he's blowing up. Andrew griped covers the clippers. He was with Tobias Harris actually sat down with him for half an hour. And the theme of today's show overlooked like we go to work. We get overlooked at times, right? Our bosses don't pay attention to us up doing good work here. Hello, hello. Can get that raise. There's a lot of players in professional sports where you know that they're legit. But they're not getting the shine maybe on the wrong team in the role market. And we're gonna talk about that players that are overlooked with Andrew graph. In his first year covering the clippers, and you gripe shadow from Oregon now, you're in LA, and you see Tobias Harris, and you have to introduce yourself. Right. You have to wear name tiger on these made it who I am at this point. So just to bioterrorism who you are. Yes. How long did you sit with him half an hour in is hotel lobby in Memphis? Very gracious guide. It's not something you get to do often with NBA players down them for half an hour on pretty short notice. But it was good to sit down because he has a very interesting story. Okay. We know that he's a player who's bounced around. But when you sit down with somebody in his hotel room in Memphis. We're gonna take away to give from him a hotel lobby now, not hotel room. Ovulate interviews in the players. I don't want to go to the lobby because there might be down there. And I don't wanna do this good point. Well, this is the clippers and this was in Memphis. So there was really no one on the streets at this point was a cold day in Memphis. No one was out and certainly no one was flocking to the clippers hotel to chase down the first place clippers at that point. But Tobias was very easy. Very easy going guy. He sticks to his routine he wants to be a very, simple uncomplicated guy. He basically lives by very disciplined schedule. He was a kid. And so even on the road when you have all these things that he could be doing with this money or this available time as NBA player, he pretty much just reads ally carries a new book with him to the locker room pretty much every other game. He just keeps himself and he's very low-key. Alvin gentry. I was talking about. How just your game is obviously come a long way we came in your mostly a post up. He's used in that way.

"But even if his in their ten minutes, he's proven to be a guy who can score double digit points. Locked couple shots and keep opponents in rim. So what were you doing in Oregon covering the blazers the ducks organ? What was what was your job at? They're actually covering college football. I was at the Oregonian in Portland and working ducts football was the thing around a lot. Although in the in the playoffs last year. I did get to fall around the trailblazers, and that was kind of a nice introduction to what the NBA like. And this is obviously now I'm jumping in with both feet, but mostly the last five years. So is this your first time covering the NBA full-time? Absolutely. Yeah. Okay. So the Portland is a one MBA team. Right. The blazers. That's it in that city. Most of these elected you come to LA they have to teams, but nobody's gonna lie here the LA times and everybody else it's LeBron LeBron LeBron some drama with the Lakers more LeBron LeBron LeBron. And then the Lakers have couple beat writers have columnists. Everybody's the attention there. It seems like you're alone with the clippers tells that world, you know, it's it is an interesting dynamic because this is being a major Mia market, which alone is transition for me. But to have a franchise that hungry for the spotlight and knows that it's not going to be a big story. See how they'd gone about this kind of just saying we're just gonna let our play determine who takes notice. So it's been interesting for me. Actually, I've enjoyed it a lot because it means there's not a whole lot of national media around the team or even local media. And so I feel like in the last six weeks or so in a lot of time where I've had opportunities to kinda gets no the clippers, and that's been really valuable. So for me selfishly, I'm fine with it. I think the team obviously would love to get a lots more coverage especially when they're playing right now. But it's been great for first time beat writer in the NBA. So when you're covering Oregon, duck football, it's a big deal. Right. Everybody's like asking you all kinds of questions, and you can't get enough. Right. Because there's so much exposure out there, right? Yeah. That's the biggest probably the most passionate fan base in the state of Oregon is ducks football. I was just going by our readership. When I was covering the team it was much higher than than blazers or even Oregon state beavers coverage. So that felt like I guess in analogy is the Lakers of Oregon where just in terms of the media presence. It's probably four times the size of the media who regularly run the clippers. So again, it's kind of been an interesting thing to walk into this beat where you have a lot of opportunities to tell really unique stories I feel like it's been a great gift. So far the big man the big shot covering the ducks. You're from Oregon why go to LA? I mean LA times is one of those spots that if they ask you if you late to join you have interest from my point of view, I don't know there's any way you say, no. So I thought that covering a major team for the LA times. I don't know how you could have had me sign quicker to join. I mean, it was just great opportunity in. Field. And I was extremely excited to get it. So that was a no brainer in my wife's family's from southern California. It also I don't know if you know, this also rains a lot in order. Definitely didn't enjoying California for that to the sunshine. As in that you leaving because you don't want anymore rain. I don't blame you sprinkle soon. I'm really concerned about my driving. Andrew Greiff from Oregon now covering the clippers. What's it like just going around with one of the better teams in the Western Conference where in the rest of the country, they pay attention to loom is quiet. What's that vibe? Like, yeah. You can kind of feel the attention growing. I think there are signs that outside media are taking notice I think they were ranked number one in the NBA dot com power rankings this week. So you are starting to see that it's not just kind of fun cute story anymore..

"Now, the clippers team close to my heart. When all ten eleven years old, I got to play on the court sports arena. Billy crystal was in the lower bowl. So you kind of pull for that underdog. The clippers aren't getting a lot of headlines right now because it's LeBron the Brown the Braun Lakers, Lakers, but the standings one of the better teams in the Western Conference. Andrew Greiff is in LA for the first time covering the clippers the new beat writer for the Los Angeles Times joins us now. Yeah. How you joined the clipper beat it's been really enjoyable, actually, obviously it helps when they are eleven and five, you know, they've won five in a row that makes things in the locker room, obviously, pretty light. But I think it's an interesting group to be around because there's not really this true, quote unquote, superstar there's a lot of very good players in a very deep bench of good players behind them. But there's not that one kind of transcendent player who everybody kind of falls in line behind. It's really interesting lesson. In almost group dynamics, we're watching unfold over the last month of the season. So who would be the biggest name, you know? I think if you would buy long jevon the league into new low going Ari who's been doing this for ten years in the NBA, of course, has been hurt for a long time. But he has the biggest contract, and I think he had a pretty good reputation coming in for being a score more recently. I think Tobias Harris though, could be a guy who would maybe the guy. You would think could be the biggest star because he's. Scored fifteen points in every game this season after he got traded to LA from Detroit last year in the Blake Griffin trade. It looked really good and his comeback even stronger this year. So I think he's got potential case to be an all star. But after that you'll the biggest name is really a fan favorites. Ianovich? How'd you on Mariano? So Why why would? would? Three. And he is a delight. Oh, do tell. He's just I don't think I've ever seen him have a bad day. I mean, this this is obviously we're out around him, very often shoot arounds and practices and games. But you talked to anyone on the team and they described him as just one of the most joyous teammates. They've ever seen in a locker room, and you go. Okay. We'll tell me more, and they say that he does not wind. He does not worry about minutes. He just comes in and like can score twelve points in ten minutes and just be highly effective and even great Popovich, a guy know Spurs coach who is famously surly I asked him about Boba on a couple of weeks ago. And he said that what was one of the favorite player has ever been around. And that just goes to show you the kind of the reputation on the league. Yes. Where do you come from? He came from Serbia originally as first year all only four years ago in the NBA was with the Spurs. He went to Detroit after that for season half. And the story goes Popovich had to explain. That free agency was coming and on had a three million dollar offer from the Spurs to retain him or Twenty-one million dollar offer from the pistons and Popovich has said that he basically told bovine you need to take this. You have to go since he's been in LA everyone around him just loves him. I think Doc Rivers is still trying to figure out when and how to use him best..

Like, they leave home when they're fourteen to go to Manitoba, whatever it is. Absolutely. I think you're seeing that the kids of those kids who I started playing when Gretzky came here. I mean, you look at the rosters of some major college programs. You're gonna see kids from California. You look at the junior hockey teams in Canada, they come down here and scout every summer, and they signed a lot of kids, and it's not just guys it's women to did a a column couple of months ago that the US women's under twenty national team and under eighteen national team, the captain of both of those teams was girl from California, which was pretty interesting because of the shows the progress of hockey here, and now you're seeing more ice rinks open.

"The one thing are. Remember is that people back then sent telegrams and the hockey team would paste on the wall, all these telegrams that were coming in from people all over the world regular fans just fan saying, you know, good luck talent, wishing them. Good luck or whatever. And they pasted in them on the wall and the rank and was like, oh my God. Wow. I guess something's happening out there. People are picking up on this. And that was a game that was delayed television wise, and you were there did you understand at that time the significance of it? Well, I mean the significance of beating the Russians. Yeah. You know? I never heard about the do you believe in miracle thing until much later because I was there. I wasn't watching it on TV. Threat. It's funny because I came home from the Lillehammer Olympics, and people were saying to meet did you meet David Letterman's mother. Why would I admit David Letterman's mother turns out back here? David Letterman was during late night show. He had sent his mother to low hammers of correspondent. So she was on TV in the US. But I didn't see that. So I didn't know what they were talking about. But yeah, I mean Lake Placid we knew that beating the Russians was a big thing because the Russians had preached the US team a few weeks earlier in an exhibition game at Madison Square Garden. Nobody expected the US team to do this. Well, you know, they had the youth. They had the speed they were very disciplined because her Brooks. But nobody imagine gold medal possibilities for that team. Like hockey's been a big part of your life. Was it something that you love to the kid also or into it? Yeah. I've always loved hockey. I remember watching telecasts of New York Rangers games for Montreal in Boston and Toronto and thinking, well, these places are so exotic I wonder. Ever. I grew up watching baseball to and you'd see Dodger Stadium and the the the scoreboard and the and the whole scene, and it was just so like, wow, wonderful ever be there. And so it's kinda it's kinda strange. I still kind of catch myself every time I walk into Dodger Stadium. It's like, wow. This is still get that feeling absolutely. I know a few people. But for me games, I've covered there grew up here going to the top date. It doesn't matter that the green of the grass and the the colors and just, you know, the just the location, you know, the the hills beyond absolutely it's my husband, and I took his father to game at Dodger Stadium once maybe about eight or ten years ago, and he grew up in Brooklyn, and he was very bitter that the dodgers had left. So we took into Dodger Stadium, and he looks around. Okay. Now, I get Now, I I get. get. People. Yeah. Absolutely. It does absolutely heart Brooklyn dodger fan. Yep. Wing Gretzky comes to Los Angeles traded here. I'm junior high picking and I didn't know anything about hockey like just like everybody else. I knew them kings team here. They played at the forum because out of L E laser games, and they talk about the kings. And but it wasn't like something. We're I'm watching this game Gretzky here all the colors, become black and silver. Okay. This is cool. Yeah. Absolutely. How did this happen where he just changing entire southern California landscape? See you look at Wayne Gretzky, if you're just walking down the street, and he's walking towards you. You're not gonna think. Wow. That's a superstar athlete you see LeBron James walking down the street you go. That's the Braun football player. She had Goff for you see a Todd Gurley or something, you know, that they're athletes. They're professional athletes seem Wayne Gretzky walking down the street. You go is he like, a valet car Parker? I've He's been. been less than six feet tall as when he was young. He was very skinny but put him on skates and put him on ice. And he did things nobody ever could do. And I think part of it was that people could relate. He wasn't seven feet tall. He wasn't three hundred and fifty pounds. He's a normal size guy doing these incredible things. And you know, he was such a great ambassador for hockey here. He knew coming here that promoting the sport was going to be part of his job..

"Every female and everybody. And I'm not gonna the reason we have you on to talk about that. But also to pay respect to you for what you've done in your career and the door that you've you've knocked down and open up for the next generation. But back to that, though, how did you say I'm going to stick with it with they're doing is wrong, or I'm pretty sure until you. Hey, want you go be a secretary. Hey, why don't you go? Do do brownie scout meetings, which are fine thanks to cover. But what I was interested in. Yeah. I mean, it was it was almost. No. And I think in some people they'll accept that. No, okay. It's too hard. I'm not going to do it. I just I can't sing dance draw or do, you know mathematical equation? So I knew sports writing what I wanted to do and pretty much the only thing I thought I could do and I just wanted to stick with it. And you know, there are a lot of other women who fought and our editors many editors very supportive, and that changed the landscape considerably, and the people that told you know, what made you keep on going to wire they. Telling me how to live my life. And who were they to put limits on me? And I think that applies to anybody in anything you're doing life. I mean, why should you except somebody else's version for you of your life? If you're feel compelled to try to do something do it at that time. Did you think you're making a difference? Doing your job. Just tried to do my job. I mean, I was just there to to report. And you really wanted to do as you mentioned. It was a considerable advantage of the male reporters were allowed into get their quotes him meet their deadlines easier than we could it was a competitive disadvantage. And it was just a an issue of fairness, and again, you know, the professional sports leagues came to their senses. And realized you know, what this should be an equal playing field. And it has become one before we started. You told me you've covered. How many Olympics sixteen sixteen Olympics? Yeah. That's awesome. I love you Olympics. The pageantry everything about the countries. Like except for the ceremony. I'll help anyone only one with Angel Rodriguez. You know? Exactly. Yeah. Winter and summer Olympics. What's the one that stands out on my first one was nineteen eighty so that wow. That that's kind of memorable for a few reasons. Yeah. But each Olympics has something different about it that you remember, I think, you know, nineteen eighty obviously the US Olympic hockey team just seeing the hammer. Norway ninety four was the prototypical what you think of when you think of Winter Olympics beautiful little village snowy. Great people friendly people. I remember in our rooms they built temporary housing for the journalists. But our rooms were decorated with drawings from local school children, which I always thought was so sweet, you know, you just kind of felt a connection to the people. It's a little hammer was wonderful to be in some place. Like, Athens is just amazing the history there, and you know, sometimes I just kind of sit there and go, you know, for a kid from Brooklyn in lucky enough to see a lot of the world. So eighty was first one and you've covered every single since then. No every winter games since then, but not every summer games. So you mentioned eighty your first one you're still trying to before that you're still trying to knock down doors. Hey, let me into the locker room and then the miracle on ice. We've all heard Al Michaels. Call and was a movie about it. What was that like in that building that night? Well, it was so funny because you have to remember and grandch- kitties. You know, ask your grandma's about this. But there was no internet then there is no twenty four hour news coverage. There was no cell phones. Then and Lake Placid is a very isolated little village in upstate New York. We had no sense very little sense really of what was happening outside Lake Placid. I mean, we knew this was a story the US team was playing so well beating the Czechs was an important game too. Because the checks for considered to have a very good team. And they certainly did. But you know, it was difficult to know how crazy everybody else in the outside world was going over this..

"Another edition of the arrive early. Leave late podcast on your host, Beth Durant. Thanks so much for the reviews the sharing the radio. Do appreciate all of that stuff. And every time I talked to somebody. The LA times podcast arrive early leave late have fun doing it. And one of the reasons I'm having a lot of fun with it. Besides just being able to tell the stories of LA as a kid born and raised in Los Angeles is getting to hear the background of the LA times writer like yeah, I'm also played with at times. But I don't feel like I'm their colleague. I'm like, we your plastic gay your son's, hey, you're sewn silly. That's cool for me. I still get that. Nerdy thing about me where like do your like big time. And that's one of the things that when I'm talking to these writers, they all talked about how the LA times is just the job can don't say no to the job work. If they offer you go there's the major leagues, and then they're like, the Yankees and the Lakers in Manchester United premier team bridge icon, ick teams and part of the beauty. What we're doing is taking you behind the headlines behind the story because he's writers have so many stories and today's guest Leanne Elliot admired for a long time. She's been all over the world covering so many stories and a hall of fame. Leanne Elliot covers the hockey for the LA times also general Simon columnist, but she's so much more. Just so many great stories. One of the best in the biz. I read her for many years. I don't wanna see a long time. Just many years. Share remind me that I'm home. The first time I saw king's press box. That's Leanne Elliot, and I knew because I had heard these stories about the Trump later in the sport hockey. I heard a trailblazer in journalism in general Helene, Elliott Hockey Hall of Famer the first female inducted into the Hockey Hall of fame as reporter, correct? Yes, congratulations. When did that happen in two thousand five and as since I was the first woman normally the media honourees get lasers, and they had never had a female winter before. So I had my choice of man's fifty four short or a man's fifty four long blades. How did you decide? I want to be a reporter. I was a big sports fan when I was a kid have an older brother, and he used to watch the Yankees lot. And later the Mets, and I just wanted to do everything he did. And I just have a memory good memory for statistics. And I used to be able to recite all the five hundred home run hitters. I don't think I can do that anymore though, Mellado at five eleven always sticks in mind, but I just love. Sports, and I love writing and I figured let's put them together to school. I went to northwestern, but I grew up in Brooklyn and went to Canarsie high school home of what we knew him as Lloyd free. But everybody else knew him as world be free. Really, John Salley, Jeff, Houston and the guy who invented Starbucks, so quite a Starbucks. Our? Yeah. That for a nicer Ray of people hall of Famer. I ranked low on the. My goodness. Then northwestern, then the LA times, it said that used to be outside of the locker rooms that they wouldn't let you into a locker when you started your career started, the Chicago Sun-Times, and I did a lot of college basketball and college football, and I remember covering a game at Notre Dame once where the female reporters were separated, we were told to stand outside the door, and they would bring players out to us to interview, which is of course, after those players talked to everybody else and after those players showered and all that. But I remember very distinctly one game. I was standing outside the Notre Dame locker and the security guard kept pushing me further and further away from the door to the point where I was literally locked outside. I was outside the gates of the stadium. There's been many adventures. But here I've managed to survive. What years were those the seventies late seventies a women weren't allowed in locker room? Yeah. Correct. Yeah. What how did you make that change woman named Melissa lucky?.
