Jennifer Griffin Reports the Death of 2 FOX Reporters in Ukraine
"But even she broke down when talking to Brett bear last night on Fox News about the deaths of these two Fox News journalists. And Brett a word about our colleagues Pierre Sasha and Ben hall tonight, the loss and pain we feel is enormous, but if ever there were a time that the world needed journalists, reporters risking their lives to tell these stories to tell the truth it's now, without a free press, the autocrats win, we will redouble our efforts to honor these colleagues and all reporters in harm's way tonight. Jennifer Griffin, live at The Pentagon. Your feelings or our feelings tonight, Jennifer, thank you. You know, when I saw that it was a couple of journalists from Fox News, I wondered how long it would take for somebody to disparage Fox News.
Jennifer Griffin: Sending MiGs to Ukraine Is 'Complicated'
"Fox News channel's national security correspondent is Jennifer Griffin, she explained to Sean Hannity last night how delivering fighter jets from Poland to Ukraine via the United States is, well, complicated. Well, it's a tricky situation. Originally what secretary blinken said was that if the polls want to directly transfer those MiG 29s to Ukraine, the U.S. is not going to stop them. That is a sovereign nation's decision. But then the polls surprise the U.S. government and said, actually, we are going to transfer them to ramstein air base in Germany, a U.S. air base, and then you take them. You deliver them to Ukraine. And the USA was caught off guard by that and B said that's not a good idea. We don't want to be in the middle of this. They're not going to stop the polls from delivering those makes, but I just came out of a briefing tonight. Those MiG 29s, unfortunately, are not going to do much good right now. Oh, okay. I got it. So the United States, which loves worldwide coalitions, we love NATO, the especially the Democrats love the UN, we don't want to be in the middle of that. We don't want to help Ukraine defend itself in the skies because that's what these MiG 29s would do. They would help Ukraine shoot these Russian warplanes out of the sky that are wreaking such havoc upon Ukraine. So
Pastor Shawn Bolz on His New Book 'Encounter'
"Sean boltz welcome. I'm so glad to be here Eric. This is awesome. I'm not going to ask you to sprint, but I'd like to talk to you about a lot of stuff. You're somebody that I've followed you a little bit, and I thought when I heard that you had a book out, the book is called encounter that it would be great to have you on the program. So your pastor in Los Angeles, now a pastor in Los Angeles, but I actually do more TV ministry. I'm on TV and like you are and I do a lot of hosting of podcasts. And we're creating a conversation for what God is doing right now. It's so easy to see what he's not doing. So easy to see what people are doing wrong with the enemy's doing. But seeing what God is doing is really profound right now. That I know that is true. And it's one of the reasons I wanted you on the program because a lot of people wouldn't know that because if you look around, the news media, let's face it. They're not covering things as they are. That's putting it really mildly. And there are dramatic things. I just had dinner with Mario Morello the other day. And he started sharing things with me. And I said, why do most Americans have no idea that there's revival happening? Lives are being changed. You would just think it's hopelessness wherever you look. And in part, because of the hopelessness, it's driving some people to God. So there's a good side to the ugly. But so you're the host, I'm sorry, you're the host of a program, obviously, on TBN, but also your pasture of a church. And the title of your book, the new book that I want to talk to you about is called encounter. A spiritual perspective that will shape your faith for the coming move of God. What do you mean by that the coming move of God? Well, you know, the last time that Christianity moved forward in a major way in America was during a period called the Jesus people movement. It was the late 60s, early 70s. And we had about 18 million people get saved, not church centric around one church. But it started in Southern California, but it went all around the world. And it was reported by news media and on the cover of Time Magazine and all these places. And the least likely people group were the ones who were used to bring this, which was the hippie community. And so it's just really interesting how God used the least likely. But I believe we're facing another season where there's a move of God. And before that happened, there was about 15 years of darkness where there was moral decay and free love free drug culture, all these things started happening. People started leaving new care family, just like today, new Griffin was down to about 8% during those years just a few years. People start to leave kind of iniquity was the big thing. Inequity being a wrong mindset through the way we believe psychologically the way we believe kind of humanism was rampant. A lot of socialism was rampant. And then Jesus showed up, then the Holy Spirit came and just supernaturally brought his presence to the earth, and many people got saved. It was very easy. And I've talked to many pastors and I don't know if you know this, but 85% of senior pastors in America today were saved during that period of time, whether it was as a result of that revival, or just coincidence that it was that period of time. Oh, yeah. And a lot of the aging out now. It's a fact. You're
Jennifer Griffin Responds to Col. Douglas Macgregor's Putin Comments
"Want to play the response that Jennifer Griffin had, and she responded to colonel McGregor and I'm going to ask him for his response of her response. As he comes on here, which is cut 9 where Jennifer Griffin responds to colonel McGregor right afterwards, play cut 9. I just heard your last guess and I feel like I need to correct some of the things that colonel Doug McGregor just said because and I'm not sure ten minutes is enough time to do so because there were so many distortions in what he just said and talking about the west and NATO vilifying Putin and sounding like an apologist for Putin. So those what he just said was so distorted that I do feel that our audience needs to know the truth. She continued, let me see the other clip here that she was on here. She continued by uncut 18. Let's play cut 18, please. And talking about how put he thinks he knows how far Putin wants to go. I don't think anyone that I've spoken to here at The Pentagon or elsewhere in western intelligence believes they know how far Putin wants to go. And I think that the world has seen what Putin is capable of and to blame NATO membership for what we've seen Putin unleashed. We've seen from Putin's own words that he is talking in czarist terms from an 18th 19th century view of empirical imperial Russia. Debate is good in situations like this. When there is a consensus that they keep on putting on television, you're not allowed to have any sort of nuance or any sort of difference of opinion, then that's usually when really bad things happen. That's usually where you get situations like when you invade Iraq. Or when you lock down your entire country.
Vladimir Putin's War on Ukraine: How Did We Get Here?
"It's reprehensible what Vladimir Putin is doing. There's no defense of it. Period. Innocence will die in a sense I've already died. Indiscriminate bombing of civilian centers and invasion of a sovereign country, regardless of whether or not it's a democracy in Ukraine is not a democracy. It's disgusting what Vladimir Putin is doing. It's his war. And he should own it, and he will own it. He is owning it. He lied to the west he lied to the world. He said, I'm not going to invade any, that's exactly what he has done. There's a lot of backstory, though, worth getting into. And we're going to dive into this in a way I think that many shows will refuse to tell the entire history the entire story. We're going to have experts, legitimate experts, not the Talking Heads on television that say the same thing over and over again and dive in to how the Biden Obama regime going back to Obama being president, created this, how the west lied to Ukraine and actually weakened Ukraine through false promises, about how the destruction of American energy superiority and supremacy played into. Russia becoming stronger. And why Russia feel so empowered and emboldened do this at this particular moment. Wars an awful thing. It's terrible. You're seeing the images of apartment buildings being bombed. You're seeing the images of Russian tanks go through Ukraine and breaking in just the last couple of moments. There's a firefight happening outside of Kyiv right now. The capital of Ukraine, where it seems that the people of Ukraine and Ukrainian military are doing everything that possibly can. To hold the line against Russian aggression, now it's unclear what Putin's aims and objectives are here. He wanted to take Chernobyl. We're going to have an expert that will tell us why that strategically important. There are troops coming from the south and from the east, but this was best explained, cut 80, Jennifer Griffin, walked through the latest of what's happening in Ukraine, play cut 80. There are indications as Lucas is reporting of an amphibious assault underway to the west of Maria Paul. Thousands of naval infantry were told are moving ashore near Maria Paul on the sea of azov. According to this senior U.S. defense official, the Russians have lost a little bit of their momentum in these first two days. No population centers have been taken so far. Russia has yet to achieve air superiority according to this official. Ukraine's air and missile defense capability is still working, though degraded. Ukrainian warplanes are still operational we're told in general in the first two days, according to this official, in general, we assess the Russian forces are encountering greater resistance than they expected.

Jennifer Griffin: The World Must Prepare for What Happens Next
"Jennifer Griffin from Fox News said the world must prepare for what is happening next. The White House is now officially calling the Russian action in Ukraine and invasion. And says more sanctions are to come in response. Okay, good, next. Next, now let's deal with crime in America. Let's deal with inflation. Let's deal with our problems because we've got plenty. And yet I'm sure the Biden administration doesn't like that message. We're supposed to be distracted by everything possible.

Journalist Julie Kelly Spent the Past Year Watching the January 6 Narrative Unfold
"Julie talk a little bit about your experience this last year, how you got into this story, very few people are covering it. It was considered to be radioactive or fringe at first. Now it's very interesting and increasingly mainstream. Just tell us a little bit about that. I'm super interested. As I was watching it, it just didn't make sense to me. I think it just smelled right away. And all of my red flags after following not just rush 8, but all the lockdown policies, how that always orchestrated and came together. So I did not share the outrage about what was happening insurrection and all of that. And so I think I was just skeptical from the get go. I also viewed it as a way to stop any claims or investigations into election fraud, which of course it's successfully did. As I was saying before, it was successful because then senators came back and a few senators who were planning to help object to these electoral results in the 6 contested states backed off. And of course, then Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were certified the next day about 3 o'clock in the morning. And so I think I just started following it from there. But I then I became aware of the people who were charged. And hearing what judges were saying in court, denying bail to people, one the first story I wrote about was Queen Griffin, the cowboys for Trump guy, who was charged with trespassing. He didn't even go inside the building. He was lawfully outside, charged with trespassing and a judge denied him bail based on the fact that he did not believe the Joe Biden was the legitimately elected president and therefore he would not follow any of the laws of the government. And so he was considered a flight risk and danger to the community.

"Interview right now. Okay guys welcome back to the show as promised. It's been a while since we've had him on. I am so happy to have him on as the olympics. Near a hand we are sort of in the spirit of time with the olympics are coming. I wonder his international connections to north korea His fact that he you know the fact that the us basketball team has been playing under expectations early in the warm up and up and the tuna to the olympics. I want a year dennis. Rodman's how are you dennis. How are you man. Tell you you're going to be here. Because i feel like i have ever even heard you guy donald. Listen to your show so the only time that i actually hear you is yeah. That's yeah yeah so. I like it. You know just like my teammates. You know i never hung out with john paxton but it was always nice. You know september back in my locker room. You still white. it's your. It's your affinity for short white guys who can take their shots. He disliked throughout so. I don't think he was jewish. I don't think he was jewish. He was jewish people. a jewish. but that's fine so my best dennis dennis. How when you look at this. Us basketball team. It has not been constructed that they don't have dennis rodman they don't have a guy don't mix up and get the rebounds am i right. Are you You are right worm. No word okay. No nothing nothing. Nothing got dogs. Got a lot of dogs or no. What do you think you could play today. You can help this team Guess no doubt not now you know. I mean pretty much every Every day i wake up. I'm like man. Hello you're you're missing me. I'm gonna hassle offer But his team i. I can't just get distracted by my skill. Such basketball skills now are better. Serve with the great Coming of third raw. Kim jong on yoga greatest guy on. He's not he's not a great. I don't know. Let me tell you something when people ask me about you starve us. Yeah okay. I say man. They are great guy. That's what i say. So how's that different avenues. People is that what you want me to do. We will continue to say good things about this but we haven't put people in internment camps and stuff you know you got vision okay. Oh that's terrible so whatever it is whatever it is you know you don't you don't own a country okay. That's owns the country. I don't think he don't know nobody gets in or out without doesn't that seem weird feels storm drain and redonda good point dennis. So what is the. Us team need to do in order to get it on the right track and potentially bring home gold in a much more crowded field are much more competitive field. Where were the first thing that i would do. Starbucks putin player smarter countries. Wait i you can do that. They do have to represent american. Be from america brecca. Okay what it says all to tie dennis man. It's all lines on a marble. It don't matter it don't matter getting you control what you control it so. Us wants to win. They jong gotta take some of his ideas like you. Gotta you gotta be a little bit of strong strong. That what they call strongman okay learning. Okay listen hold on to your stop. Because i know you don't know how politics works. We have a straw. You have a strong okay. Just like what you get a mcdonald's and took a drink okay. With a strong draw wrong means and how much stronger. Yeah so that's why the. Us team needs. They need strongman. Like like like kim jong and like the work but the problem is they're soft. Okay necessarily like all recovered we practice. So put on the mass. There you go. That's not how we defeat nazi germany. Get get coke. It and getting the paint is saying i understand. I understand what you're saying and look at him limited. Look little kim right now. I can call him.

Okay do the glenn and so maybe go got under the sloppy here near. Okay yeah baby says something like a and whatever but the point is we watched happier chipped. Okay i got with carmen. Electra does show. That worked out scotty. Yeah he did the fact that you were able to get with. Carmen electra eliminates. The possibility that phil jackson could have been because she's not white.

"Me ask you this. What do we want to happen. Because i want him to a different team where he is. I would be happy for him if i think he deserves to win another one. I do think that for the history of the game. I think it's important that a guy like that wins because of the talented. I think you should rise above all these other people who have won. I think he's a at least two super bowl singular town champion to me. I put him in the same category if not a better arm. Strength than paid men k. I think ui manning. Winning is insane and bizarre. Weird and just. That's the anomaly. But i think all the guys who have to all guys who have multiple. He's in that category. I think he's as good as that. Well what. I'm saying that same win. The super bowl this year the dan what now then now in order you know what i'm saying you come back you delia. Course you you you guys go. Hey let me work that we worked it out. All this little we did could change we. We need we're good to talk shit about your wife or your girlfriend to all your friends and then like six weeks later shop at a party who with like work it out. We're good again. Just we want it. We think that like if if they win. It's gonna be case scenarios. They win right. They win in east. He goes he stays they stay they they sign them some there for three or four more years yet. Big whom kevin a jordan love someone. That's because that guy. I don't think it's ever going to be ready You know but worst case scenario with he gets hurt or they they go seven nine. It's was all this. Four was too distracting. And then what you know. Then it's like it's like i still think he finds another team. I think goes to the last thing. Cow cousy doesn't need more science to get out of la. This is as suv. Get stolen this weekend. Then it get brash. High speed chase chase and crash like that is get out of town you. Nobody wants you here. Has there been a bigger pseudo sort of lost when you think about a laker. I don't a lot of promise for this. Was supposed to be the number three murals here with his face. And yeah i you know it's like it's tough man. It's like it's not. It's easy to be great because the ones that are great. I vote one of the things we have to remember about. All of these professional athletes is at a certain point in their life and their career. They were better than everyone around the best their neighborhood has ever seen really get to college and in a truck there there around more peers right but they still shine above a lot of people tonight and they get to the pros and getting around a guy like lebron james. And you're like and you're just like oh. Yeah you're you're not very good. That's not everybody. has that thing to be. And then you're dating then you get something you got the money. I think there's a little bit of the tire tyler. Hero thing going on with cowpeas. Which is that graham models all that stuff those things once they start feeling you up a little bit. They've got a couple of things going. I disagree with you ten. Tell me why. I'll tell you what that stuff's always been around we. Should we see we just see it so we think we're privy to something new man posting about what he's talking about people people just this net new jordan his documentary talking about walking into a hotel room all the players. There's coke hookers new. Say new. you think a millionaire athletes. It's not new now. Models are going after them. I'm not saying they're going after him. I'm saying there's like.

I feel like you know an nba team. They got a lot of injuries. Hey we're still going at it. Riffing with griffin check it out You know every monday comes out. And you know i i'm trying to do like bonus episodes that Do i did a live one today. 'cause i get it done okay so i got you know live on. I'm still doing that. And i'm you know i'm i'm doing road. Gigs griffin dot com. I'm gonna be the mgm grand. Brad garrett's comedy club from nine to the fourteenth in vegas next week. Okay all right so vegas get up and go see this dude. He will kill you. I honestly tell you when we follow him on the stage very difficult to follow hard to follow. Auto man was just fun to watch. He's fun to watch. So so vegas. Is it a fun performing arts. I've heard good been nebraska. Before i don't even know him because i'm just here. I'm a little nervous about vegas because you just here like i have so many people. I know that they've gone to vegas. And we got cova. Exactly like hey. You're supposed to win it the slot machine. I don't know so. I don't know how it's going to be. I just feel like. I'm going to be like mobile mode of just like go. Do your show and go back to my room. Yes yeah you gotta you gotta eat like other stuff so masturbate yourself a lot. It is a lot. But if you're in vegas goes to go all right Let's get a quick. It's i don't know if you saw did you see kyrie. Trashes own shoes. I don't know if you read about that now. So he's got aids are coming out by the way one through seven are amazing. Those shoes for my kid. They're good shoes. I didn't know that i like them. They're good shoes but he's got signed in two thousand with nike ten million dollars a year to be a huge game and he's complaining about he's quoted on instagram. Saying i'd nothing to do with the design of these. These are trash. these are trash in. my opinion. can't say can you say that. Even if you feel that you can't say well. I mean i guess he thinks he. Can you wanna stand by the product. I mean they are the less there saying we're paying you to just be a face and not have any input or anything we're just paying you to be like. Do you think he was like a. I want to be involved in like we got this. And then i think there's some kind of rift. I think that. I don't think he's a dumb guy to there. Might be another company. That's like come to us twenty and we'll give you all the input of visas. So here's his like this is him his way of trying to get out. You know like like heart did in. Yeah houston downs. Burn it down. He's got plenty of money doesn't care so funny. We live in the age of this. The that might be the that might be the the take so the it. Obviously aaron rodgers joined. The packers joined the backup but like his opening press conference. Just ceo gave them the fire. Right and i to me. I was like i'm here for it. Because what did he do. He put all the players who they apparently did wrong. We're in hollywood. We know when someone tries to make a deal with you. When they're making a deal with you for your second season of workaholics. Whatever was you know that they will probably were like low. Ball is the way it's going to go in and we're not going to treat them with respect he deserves. That's the way everybody gets treated. And he was like. I am not going to stand for and anybody who's ever been treated poorly by their boss. Undervalued watched aaron rodgers and was like abu ali i with ownership and management. You're not you know he's standing up. He basically let them know wasn't about the money he could've taken that deal to make him the highest paid player and he was like language money. i'm making. He's like at this point. Like i want to respect. And i want these people to be treated. Well he because he would wait. Why aaron rodgers. Who in my opinion is as good if not better quarterback tom brady. Why was he not winning. Multiple super bowls. Well because things on the field weren't happening guys in the locker room that he wanted with their. We're not there anymore. Because they let him go. Yeah he said look. There's a guy like charles woodson. He's not locking. i wanted. They're like yeah. Jordy nelson you the jordy nelson jordy nelson now randy moss. At least saying hey. Can you listen to my input right. Can i just give you some opinions. Can i help recruit recruit and their attitude was like. It's it's old mentality in that in that moment who you can listen to is. The guy comes on the gm does like we take errands of input. And you're like no you don't because if you did he wouldn't be coming out and saying this or happened but you know you're talking about the problem with the problem with people that run that organization is entitled because one. They're not the owners. The sketch just a he's just they'll just runs runs it. So he doesn't have the investment like jerry. Jones has the investment in. This is my team right. This is my xbox as a billionaire. And i'm gonna do it like this. This is a guy that's trying to run it like it's You know he's he's resentful because he'll never make as much money as he has to pay. He's like a manager to mcdonald's even worse though he's like a manager at mcdonalds that has to pay the workers worker seventy five times more money. Imagine how that must make especially when you're sitting there going you know because the problem in the past two years green bay yarbrough. We could have won the super bowl. We got you in a good position. You know what i mean. And then the erogenous part is like okay. Switched me out with Know somebody one of these other quarterbacks to see if you had the same success jordan lump yeah. Good luck with that guy with that. So it's so they're having this power struggle in the air marches. Basically he wants to play. He wants to play. He wants to be with his team. He knows he has a good shot. That's needed to let everybody know he just put them on blast. Light your loved it. I was so there for and he basically let them know why going to be going through this shit again next year or two. So i don't wanna be here. I feel like you should be able to have those types of press conferences about like your husbands or wives. Should it be like like be able to lay everything out sama. Stay in this marriage. But i gotta talk about your mom for a second this. I don't like. I don't like i saw marcus spears on. Espn i take the best thing about. It was like he went in told his wife. I'm leaving you when the kids graduate. That's right it that's right. He'll be basically what just happened. He came in there and was just like romantic comedy where they find each other again. But i mean so you know. I thought that was like in like total romantic comedy. Aaron rodgers could have a head injury where he forgets everything he said but falls. But what let.

"All you have everything leading up to this. Well even a basketball. You have the basketball world championships. You know what i mean. You have the world. Tim they count. That is like you know. I mean i. I don't know. I just think that we'll certainly for baseball and saw like softball. It should be the bigger thing but base- baseball. Us team just got all the sports that us should have dominated in and dumb. I mean dominated. Well i don't think that the us baseball team should dominate because it's not mlb players. Yeah players and all the best players in the from the united states sport anymore. it's You know it's a you know people who arabian sports. They come from other places and they come here and they because there because they don't they don't promote the sport to the best athletes in the country will the best. What's crazy the best baseball player right now on. The planet is from japan. Shohei ohtani the best basketball player right. Now who can say. I'm the best and grass is from greece. Booed by way of nigeria. I mean it's amazing it. These are two sports that i think are woven in the fabric of the united states and played on the highest level in the united states and the two best players are from elsewhere and i would argue the other. Most at one of the most exciting players in the nba is luca danni. So you know. I mean that's a dude. Who is they're never gonna win with him because he's a. He's been groomed to be a diva since he was eleven years old. I think he's gotta go to the knicks. He's he's gotta go someplace with a strong per coach coach personality. That says this is your role. This is how we win here. This is your role or you want to be. you know. 'cause he's just he's going down that russell russ book Way right now so. I've watched a lot. He does a better shot. But i've watched a lot of their games. Because i'm a fan of trey burke and i want him to succeed and i know he's he doesn't necessarily have an. I like hardaway. We're michigan guys. We like to see those guys succeed. And yes there are with the mavericks. Watch him against the clippers. This year they were up there up. Three one three one but then donncha. He has a lot gives them a lot of empty possessions. Down the stretch shots where you're like. Hey you're messing with the ball and there's only three seconds left and now you're gonna take an off balance shot and maybe one out of three times. It goes in but to other possessions. You down by six. They come down and shoot tooth raises a tie game. You gotta have down as of game titans in the fourth quarter. You gotta have a plan to get easy buckets fouls or easy buckets. That's how you guys. Are you know they got a big egos. They're making a lot of money. They have a lot of control empower organization. Everything's based off ticket sales. And you know it's like it's like it's rare. It's rare when you find that thing. That kind of player that is about you know playing the game right and winning. I mean you know that's why y- honest is a fascinating digital and and maybe it came from the fact that when i got to the league he was eighty. Nine one ninety. He is now six eleven to forty five so he has grown literally grown and matured mentally. And he's become that franchise dude. It's like you watch. That guy celebrate what he was celebrating. I'm mike this guy appreciates every moment. I really hope that. I think he's still has room for improvement. Oh yeah oh yeah. Because he's still. I think that i like. He's listening to the chatter. And you know. I i feel like he wanna feel like i'm better than kevin durant. Yeah i want him to feel like that. That's right and prove it. With the research different players are different but the way he feels like he can be better than durant goes back to what i was saying before because in his bag of tricks is the i'm gonna back up and then i'm gonna bum rush. You come at you remember when they were playing against each other like like taranto rant. Up can't guard him. He's going to take over understand why he wasn't guarding him. I know you know your big strong fast like that was mistake there. I didn't understand that. In terms of the coaches great finals this this nba finals now general. The plastic general. What this finals was. It was a great final defensive. Plays near that came out of nowhere. You had just incorrect. But i came back into the every game came down to the wire. But i can't help but just you always gonna think anthony davis was hurt. Oh was hurt. Everybody comes back to the beginning. So many this time. Juries part of it and part of it but this was an outlier of like you've gotta say last man standing by in but this is an outlier in that in it was a lot of big name cut her. Yes like you said every year. We don't think the sons are better than the clippers. No strikes now full strength. And i don't think they're better than the lakers. Either now full-strength. There's no way but the sun's found but the sun's found something they did find saudi. They did but they did find something. Along the way where you're like de'andre eight stepped his game up. And you're like that's a better player. You know and and booker made booker was show flash. They needed him to be better that he was they needed him to be that great every single often. He's not not there yet. You know enough i really. I wanted chris. Paul to win me to saying but at the same time i was like. Oh it's not just because you got injured you didn't make it There a couple of choices choices that shit you know you. It's not a little man game the nba finals. The is was probably like probably the best six foot point guard. Maybe that's ever played. Maybe thomas is up there too and he was winner. Let's take a break shell..

"His his. Iq is is can't we can't we we you know we go because he didn't win Like two more games in everything. Then bob lori is the greatest player. I'm saying bill. Russell bill russell. The guy got to ten which is championship with some k. average teams and he's playing right now at this age better than anyone has ever played at at this age. Yeah like when kareem was thirty. Six your grandpa right like he gonna break when he walks down the floor. I understand in terms of like i. Don't i if you were drafting a team. If if we were drafting teams right for our lives which one you know and Hobie picking teams and if we had somebody else give fort. Here's the thing. I will say this if i pick. I'm taking jordan. And if the say only the three of us yeah i'll take jordan and the number four pick versus anybody. You guys picked. I'm gonna win jordan. Who whoever that is. Okay but what i'm saying is now the next person is to take. I'm taking lebron in six pick because that's going to be better than amazing drag. You know what i mean. I just think like when you talk about you talk about grades divall times you talk about who you wanna have. You could talk your nice thing about kobe. And he's great and rip and he was. It was great. Yeah but like do you know. Look at shacks numbers and those three championship like it was like it was shack. Don't most dominant force it was. His numbers are ridiculous in those finals. Man so the truth of the matter is any talk about football all the time. Who's the guy on the offensive end of football that we have to gain plan for. Who do we have to change everything for. Its in those lakers things. It was shack. We have to double him up. We gotta hack him at the end of the game so we put him on the free throw line. they're not saying. How do we guard. Kobe knew just put your best guy on them. And see what you can do. They're not seeing that they're not saying we need to throw people out at him. That's why this is such an interesting and fascinating Player too because you kinda have to figure out a way to to deal with him to what he did. The in the end in the last game game seven of this thing was solidified in credible he showed up. he said i am the league. Mvp yup. i am the best player on this court right now. We're gonna win this championship. Because of me. Because i'm a score fifty. I'm gonna go to chick-fil-a the next day. In order fifty. I guess what i'm gonna hit. Sixteen to eighteen free throws to the he was like he he let us know. What kind of champion is. Here's the thing. I need to see him. Do it again do it again. That's because i just don't i. Just don't think mill. I didn't trust milwaukee going into this You know and to put a lot of trust in. Chris middleton and i don't know if everybody had that trust in that dude but he showed up not just him. It's the kyrie irving has now cost himself to championships. Yeah because of his injuries caused himself to championships in the flatter. You don't throw that in there to throw that up in. This obviously is part of the game. But like cleveland would've won the championship eh. Irving i here. I don't even think golden state would have been able to be as good as they were next year. Because i i think it would have derailed their whole thing who knows how the weight late and comes back and he is the klay thompson of old. He can she where where where they next year. Because with steph who played out of his mind this you gotta give him credit for the way he and they brought along young guys like george w i think they're going to be going to be a pretty good team but i think i don't think i think draymond green we. They've already gotten the best out of him he's he's him on his way to. The barclays lot is like you know so in today. Don't that was a big part of their team. But we'll see you know it's like it's all about like how great do we think the bron james still is that we're gonna find out we're gonna find out to find white so fast all right. Let's talk about the us men's basketball team. Because i believe that we didn't take the right dudes like how is ice tray. Not on that team. Why he is to me is the most up in jamil. Here's the thing man so exciting. The best player on that team is having the same problem. He's had on every single talking on. Yeah he's not he's not that do not that and i just think it looks like you know that's what it is is part of. It is because of the type of game he plays so you ask what. What's kevin durant. When is he in his sweet spot. It's when he's pulling up shooting shots k. You're not going to be able to sh- you're not gonna be able to do that every single night. So is he. The guy was gonna muscle guy down when he doesn't have a shot that night and just back down and get into the post and do what he has to do with like inside shots. If you're if you're shots have the wrong. The wrong roster was brought to you know big man you have no big man that you can just start feeding when when the shots you've got again am dri mongering acting like he's kevin love's on the team he's he's not ninety. He's off the team. now he left. You know by the way though. Let me just go back and say one thing though The nets lost because of bad coaching. You think oh for sure for sure he was just too. He was too blue to green. I'm sitting here yeah. He's too green. No way calendar. Asha played every single minute. Yeah no way. Yeah because it's like it's like i in in going into those. It's just that you just gotta have a strong person down the sideline going you coming out. Yeah i need you. we're gonna take this timeout. You'll get two three minutes right here and we'll see what we can do. You know I don't understand What's hispanic exactly. Lean as a new coach coach. I think he will be a good now. What i'm saying now is that. I don't think that i don't think that the us teams being coached to there. I don't think so either. I don't think so either. I'm saying this. I don't want to put it all on now. I love the. I think they have to game plan better for you. This is a new world right now. You can't just show up and be like we're. usa usa. Looks like every other team. You know what i mean like. France has like three dudes rudy. Gobert the best defensive player in the nba. Forty eight is not a bad player on the seventy six. It's just like a heart. I heard someone saying this is kind of like when you look at the ncaa when you get those one and done players versus like those juniors and seniors who played together for three or four years gambling like better team. So that's that's what's happening in the us. But i think the from the coaching fact perspective. You need to develop a game plan and play differently every night. You need to be like all right. This is who we're playing france. They like to they like to spread you out and they like to just take their shots. Will we're gonna get we're gonna get up in their shirt all game and we'll just rotate guys in. I don't think they care about this. Is that they care about. I think because they're mba players and there's something else that they care about more than this which is so bizarre. It's strange it's like to me. It's like why you saw the tennis. Obviously jovovich was look into win the golden slam and he wanted to win gold medal and win all four grand slam tournaments when he gets bounced before he even can win a medal. You're like yeah. But he's focused now on the. Us open which is happening in a little. You know what i mean like. They're all sort of like. They have bigger things in their sports whereas for gymnastics. There's just gymnastics for diving and swimming. It's just the olympic. That's.

"Do you call it team team friend. I'm glad you bring that up. I wanna talk about russell. Westbrook to the lakers. Which for a lot of people. Because you can't do the two are inextricably linked linked okay. So you're like. What was the problem in. Okay see was it russ russ has been now on four teams and four years. Can't get deep into the playoffs on the play offs because he has never met a shot he didn't like i mean at least durant hit some of the shots he takes. I know but they didn't. They didn't they weren't. Maybe they weren't a good relationship. But at the same time i disagree. I think that they were great together. They were up three one against the best team so they just. They needed another year. I wish that they would have came back. I wish that they would have had the fourth. Those three disad three at with the maturity that charity that started. Martin wasn't hardened yet but the thing about westbrook to the lakers is. I think that lebron james has the gravitas has the has the elder statesman has the hey i might be the greatest player of all time to make that case thing. He has that to russell westbrook. Yeah we're gonna do it this way and you think he's gonna listen you. Yes you do. Yes i think the only reason why. They made the only reason why they made that. Trade is because the bron james like i got it but likes the trade. Listen to me. I know wet james said look we know you only got a couple of years left. Who do you want to come and say we can do this. You don't think you think it was surprise. Lebron james went to them and said don't i got it to me. I think they would have been better if they're like. Get me chris ball. Because i don't think chris paul wanted to do that he wouldn't have. But here's my question. Doesn't russell westbrook in some ways. You think about how lebron shoots. Doesn't he give you the same thing. The lebron gives you with just a little light. Lebron james gives you whatever you need. He in at thirty six years old. He led the league in assists. That's what i mean he's gonna drive into the lane and kick it out to russ and he's going gonna give you what he needs. You're not listening in if if if at thirty six years old is the first time he's leading the league in assists that means he adjusted his game. He lebron's going to adjust his game again. I i bet you're going to see a lot of lebron down in post you're going to see a lot of like he's gonna bring shooters in they're going to bring in. What are they gonna bring. They can bring in west That buddy healed guy. I don't think they're going to bring him. Buddy i think westbrook was it was him or healed and they can still get steve. They're not done yet. They need some shooters. They need problem. It the truth of the matter is you aren't gonna find a better combo than lebron ad when they're both healthy there data. That's as good as it gets because a is just such a match problem. You're talking about an older lebron. That's true years older. just find. it's just like it reminds me of the reminds me of that older shack when they won in miami. That's right six. He he still was great. Yeah but he wasn't. He wasn't tasers. The diesel dwayne way was clearly the best. But talk about robin. That like is like dan. you know what i mean. Something me robin. So the beauty of that. And it's amazing for lakers fans if the beauty of that is shocking out and got his on his own and wh and by the way they wouldn't want to doing get hurt in eastern final. That's right and coby went out and got two more on his own. So it's like and that's because the bronchitis down do you think so. Yes yes we we. We never got to see what we wanted to see that here. That would have been the that. We all wanted to see us. Lebron verse cody in the finals. And we never got it and we really wanted to see that and they would it by the way you think. Lebron have the horses to do like he didn't have the full and kobe was the difference between the two of them that some people argue why they would maybe put kobe above lebron in the in the history of the they say. Kobe will slit your throat to win. And lebron maybe doesn't have that too. I'd say i'll take it. I'm disagree with it so tell why are you disagree because some people say. Kobe was about winning in way. That lebron maybe isn't about winning kobe's about winning. The way jordan was about winning lebron yes. Winner winner has won a lot by the way with. Lebron stood up in in miami and said we're knocking it. Would he said was one ragweed and to try before he went to the finals. Like if six yeah. I'm trying to say i gave. The guy went to the finals. Hard time to make it there. I know we know he made it to the finals. I know where we're talking. We went out please. I if they would they would they would. Beat the lakers. Beat the lakers. Lebron james is way in the finals then. Kobe has ever been You look at ron. Our tests should have been Mvp of the finals that year paul gestalt had a had a claim. It was because he was kobe bryant and he didn't have great finals. Man played good defense. But i'm just saying look at his numbers. It wasn't like it wasn't i agree. It wasn't fifty one ten and twelve gave you in finals. I think he would have made to the finals. Oh that that matchup. I just i think lebron's better in. He's better individually. And and that thing you saying like no. Kobe wanted to win his way. That's right. He wanted to win his way he he didn't want to jordan jordan wanted to win he won and he also adjusted. He adjusted his game. You know he passed the ball for championship shot. Koby wouldn't have passed apple. No he wouldn't have passed occur. You went past a stuff. I'm just saying that is the flip. Side of the argument for lebron is that he makes the right basketball player. He just went up again. He went up against like when he went when when he played. San antonio san antonio was way better team. Yeah right all right He went up against golden state team. They were a monster man. They were just complete mobster monstrous team dude. And then you know he. He gets to the lakers went. Come on man you you. You're you have to really look at like these things they say about him. Forget what they say about him and look what he's done. I think i a straight finals. So so so they say so. You know i wa-. I'm watching a guy coach my son and he basically says when you get past your guy if you beat your guy in your coverage if he's covering you beat him and someone comes to you. You're someone comes off someone else to you your place to pass it your place to dish. You don't take that guy on that guy's position of guys come to you that means someone's open to people are people are open so lebron his instinct is to draw those raw them and then make a cake and have someone else do it. I think early on in his career. He was probably more that but i think the last ten years of his career he is. He's a monster you know when he when he won those when when he figured out who we needed to be in miami. He was unstoppable. Did the miami. He was stopped when he came back. He was also. He was unstoppable because they had to account for two other guys who were. But even even cleveland man cleveland. He was cleveland he would. He was like he still went through like he did. But kyrie was the one if you look at game seven in the fourth quarter and the second half game six. Sorry kyri was the one. He's a phenomenal player. Who yeah yeah but you have to remember that because all the attention is on the bron james right and he knows that what you just said. Jay wright basketball.

"Whatever. His name johnson. But at this point it doesn't matter what they already have in place the fact that they even got somebody that is relatively good like that they gotta keep reggie jackson pretty. It's pretty good for their team because they already have. But what. I'm saying. I agree with see. They're already hamstrung because of colli What he made them do so to get paul george. They had to leverage the future so they actually had to sign. Paul george yes or if they don't sign paul george. Don't get quite then no. It's not just that they know. Forget that so. He's he's looking at the future. Forget th they got what i'm saying. Though is they had to sign. Paul george after that or it was for nothing because i gave away everything to get him. That's right. Are you on board with paul george. Hit in the playoffs. Or are you like. I think that I think i think i think he proved a lot to get himself in a better needed his. You know it would be like you know. Look robin can't beat up joker and that's right. He can make he could put up a good fight. And you'd be like okay. Well i i see you. Although people about robin he's a good two way player could play defense he was. Hey i'm saying so. I think he did a lot and he. What he did did may me believe if quiet was there they would have been in a championship and probably we agreed with that. Especially this season with a down. Golden state with with a style so consistent man thirty six points twelve rebounds seven assist every damn game. It's like even when he has a bad game. He's thirty four points. Do you know what i'm saying. Like he's like to be counted on. There is no he disappeared in this game. I mean there are a couple games. He scored like twenty five points. That's him disappearing scoring twenty five points. Paul george a little up and down. I know but but he that's. He's definitely after we is but but i thought he was more up in moments that we didn't think he would be up in this playoffs. But you know if you look at like. The injuries are a part of the game at this point when we talk about kawhi leonard. He's injury prone. Okay this is not new right. He sat out a whole season with san antonio because of a lower leg. It was so miss. Any guy injuried again. He's he's a guy that gets injured right. So let's just. But i was thinking about this the last five championships all have something funky about him. Yeah they all do so this year. you know. Kyrie irving doesn't get hurt nets demolish. I agree with the milwaukee. They were up they were. They were beating the hell out of it. Yeah okay durant was out of his mind almost like during you look at durant now on the men's Us olympic team. And i'm like is this a promotion for 'em night shama lonzo old. Because he looks old. He's eighty four we but the thing is is like i. I have a whole other opinion about that. You know we get to that but let me just say. Finish my point about these last five championship to toronto so toronto the funky co klay thompson gets heard. Kevin durant gets hurt death. Funky funky the to that. Kevin durant won. Those are funky because they were already. The greatest team ever assembled. And then you add this dude right. So i i. I don't feel great about those right then. The year before that the brian wins right draymond green gets gets up three one okay and then the year before that kevin love and kyrie irving get hurt and ended up more takes them to six. They would a lot of golden state. Had to jackie chips. And yeah but i think what you're saying what you're showing what you're proving is because i look at a guy like joel embiid. I'm like this dude for the last. Several years has not been healthy in the he needs to be healthy but this is part of the art of the game. What we're realizing is exactly this is. It's not like i guess. Basically the point in making is this season wasn't an outlier but it is just something that happens in the league and even if you go back to some of the championships that we like that. We revere jordan's first championship. James worthy was hurt. Yeah he was hurt. You know when it was magic. Pistons with the lakers and pistons one year of magic's hamstring. He was out. And then the next one isaiah. Thomas ankle was hurt. I mean there's never a time in the best teams playing against each other playing at their service. That's what makes men. Magic had to play center for that game in the garden and he won. That's what made that so great. He's like he had to step up and over the sixers. Now that was against the celtics. But it's a good point. I mean i look even in the nfl. In terms of there was a moment was last year. I think we're chad. Henny the backup quarterback for the chiefs had to carry them. He had to make to place he on a fourth down play. He ran and scrambled in. Org and you say to yourself you need the backup to be good enough to get you there out. The team's gotta be good. And i think that's what's been proven in the nba. Right now needs some depth. Need some people. But like so. I don't know but if you like just not as kevin durant thing man first of all. There's two things and i. I think that you know how they say. People don't come back from that injury. The achilles injury kim these as well what what we realize is. They can't come back if you give them a year and a half off. That's right yeah. He didn't get that. no no. no. I'm saying i think he did well. He had a spectacular year this year because he had a lot of time usually play like forty percent of the games. Yeah okay. I see what you're so you had all of the covert. He had all of the thing all of the bubble a yet more time than a person would get but he came back too soon on that first injury when he came back to golden. But forget about that. Okay about the most wreath most recent injury he took we're riding out is what we find is i. You should keep they pay him so much they gotta bring them back right but the thing is like what they really should do is like no. You're out for a whole year and you'll be out for the half of the next year after that you're gonna be on minutes restrictions and then a year after that you'll be one hundred percent getting our money's worth but but here's the thing about kevin durant man look. He's a great player. No doubt you know and you know this so never get to him but you never know burner accounts and he's like these birds after people come after me mash me. I don't care but my thing is like you just go back against the heat When he was golden. Okay see okay. See against the heat. There's two or three games important games. He was like seven thirty. Okay very important games. All right he okay so now you cut to them trying to get back to the championship in the things that have happened in in the western playoffs. It was a lot of. They didn't get the job done now. The most most recent of their western play playoffs. They're up three one and in the important games. He was seven for thirty that exactly. But i'm saying if you look at it. I looked it up. It's like six hundred twenty five In the very important games and then he goes to the team were his. He doesn't have to be whatever it'd be the all you don't gotta meet all world guy. Okay he's unbelievable his scrape. But yeah but i think that i could've uncontested shots like i could have got ten ten and three rebounds you and so then you go like. I'm being facetious. But you know what i mean and you go to And then now you cut to now on brooklyn now. Now he's in brooklyn so yeah. He had that great spectacular forty nine point seventeen rebound game in the game today matter if he won or lost They were still in the game and then after that what happens i mean okay is he. Lewis is any loses. His two guys that are that support system. There you know hardens kinda out and i know as out and you know yeah you mean like how like like say. He did the same thing. The brandi of the brown played against the greatest team ever and are like three guys are smith who was like shirtless for half of it. I mean you know he lost. Kevin love loft kyrie irving. I took him to six games. He did you know what i mean. So good lebron chan in in the finals okay. So i'm just saying so you there. I think there's something about kevin durant personality that is not What.

"Is super for debate. He's just so so fun. To talk to so eric on the show and then later on the show dennis rodman it's olympics time and he's gonna talk about His connection to north korea house north korea during the olympics. I don't know. I don't think they're there but whatever who knows but been knows we'll talk to him later. Let's stay with the olympics. For our top taker. And that is the fact that as we're recording this The us women's national soccer team Lied of us. Soccer lost in the semifinals to canada to canada. So that'd be like canada. Losing the united states in hockey right or in like tim hortons coffee maker exactly. But here's the deal. It is okay. I'm giving everyone permission. Who's listened this. It is okay for you to be angry at the. Us women's national soccer team is okay for you to be disappointed in that sets right if you are angry and you are disappointed than that means. They're doing something right and to me if we are angry at the us us women's soccer team. It is a greater sign of their success than maybe even their success right that like. They fell short of everyone's goals for them. They should be a. We're not supposed to lose. We were looking forward to them. Going on another run and winning the gold medal they. They came to games away the whole way. This tournament was played by this team to me. Showed me that they were not going to know. First of all they get owned by sweden in game one and lose three nothing then in a weird game against australia. They play for the thai just to advance. Which i guess is fine. And they had a goal called back which was questionable. It shows you. How few chances you get. When you looked at the game against canada each team only had a couple of chances and then canada got a shot. And you're like there's the game right there. The united states throughout this entire tournament has not been able to generate offense and when you don't yes scored six goals against i forget who they were playing against but they scored six goals it fine but take that game out of it. Take that game out of new zealand. I think yet they have not been able to to generate offense against other teams teams that they should be able to canada. You should be able to score a couple goals. Exactly this is canada there. You have to face them. In their part of our continent we should not only be destroyed. Okay the european teams. I can understand maybe lose to brazil. That's one of the even the netherlands but they beat the netherlands. Look this is where. Us women's soccer is. This is where the world soccer game world is catching up to. The women can't show up win anymore. You have to have a plan you have to. You have to play together and you know what this is different than the us. Men's basketball team basketball team because the men's basketball team. They didn't even bring their players. These are the best players that the us has. Soccer team didn't bring their a game. The us men's team didn't bring their players so look i mean. There is a moment by the way this past weekend where i watched the. Us men soccer team. Which i've we've long slagged on. This show beat mexico. There be team. Us men's be team basically beat mexico's eighteen for the concacaf gold cup and that was so exciting. I was like what my watching women's soccer here. lex. I was home. Alexi lexi lawless. Alexi lawless was in tears right like twice this summer. The united states is put up hardware The concacaf gold cup. And then i forgot what the other cope america they won both and may be mexico in the lord of those and by the way. It's not a bad mexico team. There's a good mexico team and the young players. The united states beat them. And you said yourself okay. Something's happening we're building something because we had no expectations on this team. You have so many expectations on the winds team and they let us short they let us down and you ask yourself why so you. You wanted this. Us women's day your alabama. Now you're duke Your duke in basketball you right. Alabama alabama and alabama. Loss to ole. Miss you didn't lose to lsu even lose to auburn your rival in state you lost to ole miss a team that you beat thirty four times in a row or whatever it is. Us hasn't lost canada in soccer and women's soccer since two thousand and one so to me look. They're going to be bumps in the road. They are going to be playing. And and by the time this comes out they will either have won the bronze-medal or not the plan australia for the bronze me better. They better step up. They tied australia. Yeah they better step their game up and blow australia away right and then take their bronze-medal home and be a little disappointed. That's right and use that as motivation comeback to the next one cup and then come and then we sound harsh. It only means that that we're really fans disappointed. And i liken this to when we were doing the roast battle And judging the roast battle. There's a comedian joe. I get his live. I'm blanking on his last name right now. He's in a wheelchair. I don't know what his What he has or what his diseases or what causes him to not be able to move but even speaking kind of a strain for him he also is a brilliant joke writer any also thought of deliver jokes sales right. He's a good stand up and a really good Joke writer and roaster. He wins a lot in roast battle because people try to come at him and then his jokes are smarter and better and wins. We saw Who who was a robin tran. Who him or. Someone beat him Someone roasted against him and he lost and we talked to him afterwards and he was like. I'm glad i lost. That means that they're not giving me special treatment. Well he he belongs there. No one saying. Hey we're giving this to you because you're in a wheelchair they're like you gotta earn it like everybody else. That's the most like equal treatment that anyone can ever give him his say. Hey you got a shot to lose as well. While the women's soccer team lost a game that they should've won. And we as fans right. Now if you're a fan you're disappointed this and that's a good thing for women's soccer because you're like all right prove it when you can come back when that bronze-medal game and then come back in the world cup comeback in the in three years and show us what you're made of all.

Talk for a couple of minutes. And then you let them loose on an award stage in oppressed by. unstructured the most charming man why he is what he's. Yeah? But, but we also acknowledge that he has an incredibly talented from afraid you must. People don't like to talk about performance says so again. You have to give him the words. Industry the performer. No one thinks about the people who are readiness, do you do you know? Do you know what are you? Do you know what the Coen brothers looked like? Yes, well, some people don't. That's I mean of course I. You know I know. Some people don't know that they look you know like like that. which also visit totally the same? No people might think. Oh, brothers, they look the same. No one is bold. And that's the shocking. All balden short one is tall there and they sort of have. The. Coloration yes, interesting, one of them has dark, longer hair, and the other one is balding with a beard and has reddish hair. Yeah. Can I say it makes you wonder if they're brothers well. Do We know I? Don't think it's off top of head. I know which one tall is in which one short is talent worth even short as tall as Joel Right. Is Francis. Joel and Ethan is. His Beard Hey. Hey, what I think. He has a lovely wife. I sat behind them at the film forum once. What were you seeing you said? Forms of the film. On them, I sat behind. Colin at Film Forum. Hundred it was it was. It was now trying to remember I. WanNa say was a Preston sturges movie. It was a screwball comedy. Says Lord he's been married to him TRICIA Cooke since one thousand nine Tricia. Just like no I love. Why won't? Senator, she's an editor. FESCUE okay. Have you seen hells pop in. No, you should see that okay it was. Did you just see it phone forms that were thinking of it? Okay, it's actually on Youtube really yeah. You should see hells poppin. Okay, should. Get into. Well we've been Gavin Yeah we've been gavin straight. We've been popping. Even we've been popping off was each other, but we need to pop off on one man. I. Okay, let's not this up because we reach out to griffin awhile ago Griffin. Who would you want to do well? I believe I I WANNA say yeah. Isolating the just go, we reach out. I've been listening to this show. I love it. I just want to extend I said wow. And then you're like I would do this person if I was on. Yeah, just throw out into the atmosphere I'm always ready to talk about them. And then you send us a very important video. A we should say Vin. Diesel indies the talk about today. Is Mark Vincent's Sinclair Birth. Name Yes The. Lord knows him as When he gets up to those pearly gates when he gets to Saint Peter's and the squirrel US Open. He'll say Vin then. Many Guy, you'll save an easel himself, my guy. I guess he he is my favorite. Movie Star. Okay, interesting that you say movie star not. Yes think there is a delineation. Yes, and I do think Vin diesels. A good actor and there are actors who I would rank higher as my favourite living actors who I also think are good movie stars I. Don't think the things are mutually exclusive. Sometimes they are, but I think you're Brad Pitt. Your term cruises complicated math. Complicated, but those guys you're talking about who kind of secretly are sort of character actors. Yes, maybe a little Tommy Thomas Bradley. No, he's a he's A. He's a character and certainly William. Willie likes to play a character likes to. A little hitch is full method. Math I didn't realize that was the fifth time I watched. That movie I didn't recognize the Pierre's disappears. You know what's crazy I. assumed it was prosthetics I said this must be like a a Rick Baker. Thing and then I found out. It's like Bradley. Cooper and the elephant man. He just did visit Godley. Yeah, but you don't recognize him in that movie but then I think is a perfect example of what a movie star is with the power of being a movie star is both in terms of what he does and movies, and what he does surrounding his movie. You're telling the Rock to take notes. I mean I'm going to go off on the Rock in this episode because I think the only way you can explain what is important and special and valuable and dare I say brilliant about Vin diesel is to throw some shade on the Rock. I think you have to, and it's not just because of the feud. Also we're GONNA. Have to talk about because obviously, I was obsessed with. Has Gone Back. It like you came out, and it was like okay, we'll singer t this, not just that they have this history, not just that they have this feud, but also i. do think they are opposite sides of the same point. And a thesis I'm going to present here. Will loop back around to it later is that I think for our generation? The analog is that VIN diesel is stallone and the Rock is Schwarzenegger. Whereas I think okay been diesel has improved upon the stallone formula and The rock has missed a very key come out of the Schwarzenegger formula, so they're not even at the same level. Yes, I am out of work and I'm GonNa Talk Shit about the most bankable fucking movie star in Hollywood is the positive do. This is the positive. Okay okay, so we have so much to talk about Let's start with. When did you realize was guy? It took a while. I mean truly because I remember my first exposure vin diesel was the iron giant. A classic a Big Tuna. billion. Perfect film creep performance. People don't talk about that as a performance that off He was pretty much on known actor. I I'll say veal is hard. Yeah, veal is really is. Is Iron giant before or after Private Ryan? It's after Private Ryan Right. It is the following year. It's ninety nine private Ryan's ninety eight. Yes, and pitch black is earlier in ninety nine. That's that initial run where he's starting to pop. Pop Off, but I was such animation kid in such a like behind the scenes, kid that I was watching all the like behind the scenes making of stuff, so I was seeing this guy in this booth and video booth, wearing sunglasses, whose name is vin diesel and sounds like that? Yes, and I just went like palm. Okay, remember that for later. This dixon my mind flash forward two years. Two thousand one. Don't see prime when I come theaters. Okay, so that doesn't make the impression on me. Don't see boiler room when it first comes out in.
